Mysterious Shards hold a special place in Assassin’s Creed Mirage. You’ll first encounter them after successfully assassinating your initial high-ranking Order member. Nehal, your companion, will guide you to a hidden spot in the Northern Oasis, where these shards can be exchanged for potent loot.

The significance of Mysterious Shards in obtaining unique gear might not be immediately apparent, leaving some players perplexed about their purpose and how to acquire them.

For those struggling to find Mysterious Shards, here’s a comprehensive guide on how to obtain them in Assassin’s Creed Mirage.

How to Get Mysterious Shards

While you can technically begin your quest for Mysterious Shards once Basim arrives in the Wilderness, it’s advisable to progress further in the story before attempting to locate these collectibles.

  • Specifically, working through the “My Old Home” story quest is recommended.
  • Completing this mission triggers the appearance of Mysterious Shards on your map and navigation bar, making it considerably easier to find them.
  • This quest becomes available after dispatching your first Order member.

Once you’ve addressed “My Old Home,” keep an eye on your navigation bar as you explore the diverse territories in Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Eventually, you’ll notice the Mysterious Shard symbol appearing on the bar.

  • Eliminate the elite Order member indicated by this symbol to claim the collectible.
  • Notably, there are two such Order members in each of the game’s five territories, so use the in-game collectible lists to keep track of your remaining targets.

Now, let’s delve into the locations of Mysterious Shards:
