Best Skills To Unlock First In Assassin’s Creed Mirage

Note: You need to earn skill points to unlock skills in Assassin’s Creed Mirage.

Auto Collect

Your very first skill point should go to the Auto Collect Skill. It is available under the Trickster skill tree. Auto Collect skill in Assassin’s Creed Mirage let’s you loot an enemy automatically after a stealth assassination. This is an absolute must have skill if you want to farm money, loot rare resources, and save time while doing so.

Guards often carry Dirham as well as high value loot, sometimes even quest items. With the Auto Collect skill you can simply assassinate them and walk away with the loot, without worrying about manually looting their bodies.

Elixir Pocket

What is an Assassin without healing items? A dead Assassin. Having healing items become really handy with you’re facing multiple enemies, running away from a plethora of guards shooting arrows at you, and boss battles. In fact, they come in handy in every situation where Basim is low on HP. Elixir Pocket is another skill from the Trickster skill tree. It allows you to carry more healing potions in Assassin’s Creed Mirage, making it one of the best early skills to have.

After unlocking Elixir Pocket skill, you will be able to increase the maximum number of Elixirs you can carry at the same time by 1. I highly recommend you invest in this skill early on.


Breakfall skill in AC Mirage.

Speaking of running away from enemies; Breakfall is another important skill that you should invest in early on. You’ll have to unlock the Phantom Skill Tree first by unlocking the first skill but after that, put your points in Breakfall. It costs 2 skill points and reduces the amount of damage Basim takes when jumping off a dangerous height.

Often when you’re running away from guards in Baghdad, you may end up jumping off higher buildings. Breakfall is the perfect Assassin skill in this situation. Basim will perform an automatic roll when landing on the ground, reducing the amount of damage he takes.

Pickpocket Master

Resource and money farming is made easy with the Pickpocket skill.

The skill resides in the Trickster Skill tree. It costs 4 Skill Points and allows Basim to Pickpocket more efficiently. It makes the process faster and easier compared to the usual mini-game you need to play to get the good out of an NPCs pocket.
