Managing Notoriety in Assassin's Creed Mirage for Better Gameplay Experience
In Ubisoft's latest Assassins Creed installment titled Mirage, you get to live the thrilling life of a 9th-century thief named Basim on the streets of Baghdad. Assassins Creed Mirage reemphasizes the pivotal role of stealth in gameplay, deterring direct combat. In the game, players who attract attention by undertaking unethical deeds face the consequences of 'notoriety.'
Your notoriety level discomforts the public and also attracts the attention of law enforcement. Here's a comprehensive guide to manage your notoriety and sail smoothly through the streets of Baghdad.
Understanding Notoriety Levels in Assassin's Creed Mirage
Notoriety in this game is divided into three stages: Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3. The level of fame you reach dictates the trouble you'll encounter. You can see your notoriety level on the bar in the lower right corner of your screen.
Level 1 Notoriety
Linger too long, and Baghdad citizens will notice you and call guards. You'll also see a few wanted market posters with your name and picture.
Level 2 Notoriety
As your notoriety hits level 2, archers will be stationed on rooftops, civilians will be quicker in reporting you, and guards will be actively hunting you. You'll find an increased number of wanted posters scattered around the city.
Level 3 Notoriety
Reaching the peak, a loud alarm sounds, and an elite guard named Shakiriyya will be dispatched to track you down. Citizens will gather around your wanted posters and talk about you, making your presence more noticeable.
Increasing Notoriety in Assassin's Creed Mirage
Notoriety rises with any publically witnessed act deemed unethical, albeit variably depending on the severity of the show. For instance, if a player kills a guard in front of citizens or hurts the public of Baghdad, their notoriety increases significantly, whereas unsuccessful pickpocketing brings a slight increase.
The critical point is visibility – if an unethical act is performed secretly without public awareness, it doesn't affect notoriety.
Decreasing Notoriety in Assassin's Creed Mirage
Decreasing notoriety is equally vital for the smooth progression through the game, and Assassins Creed provides several ways to do so.
- Tear Down Wanted Posters: You can reduce your notoriety level by one by finding and tearing down wanted posters placed around the city. However, this action might make nearby citizens suspicious.
- Interact with a Munadi: An alternative option is to speak to a Munadi who can wipe your slate clean at the expense of a Power Token, obtainable through contract rewards or pickpocketing.
- Defeat the Shakiriyya: This only applies to players who have reached Level 3 Notoriety and are being actively hunted by the Shakiriyya. Defeating him will remove your notoriety.
Managing notoriety is crucial to ensure a smoother ride through the historic streets of Baghdad in Assassin's Creed Mirage, so use this guide to help yourself navigate the game.
