How to get the Four Markets Gear Chest in Assassin’s Creed Mirage

You'll need to take a detour to the Silk Quarter.

In Assassin’s Creed Mirage, the Four Markets Gear Chest is located inside a building in the southwest corner of the Four Markets district of Abbasiyah. It’s one of the most complicated Gear Chests and requires several steps.

On the roof of the building, there is a Shipment Notice that says that a shipment of oil jars has been placed in the storage room and that the merchant who wrote the note has gone out for tea in the Silk Quarter. This might not seem relevant to the Gear Chest, but it’s pointing to the first step toward getting it.

You need to get into the storage room, but it’s locked. However, now you know that the key is in the Silk Quarter.

The Silk Quarter is the northeastern part of the Four Markets district in Abbasiyah. You need to go to the tearoom marked on the map above. Look for a doorway with a purple awning over it.

Go inside and up the stairs. Pickpocket the man standing at the window to get the Four Markets Storage Key. He’s an easy target, but I’d still get out of there if I were you. Return to the Four Markets Gear Chest and use the key to get into the building next to the one with the chest.

Unbar the back door of the storage room, then pick up one of the oil jars and head out the back. See how the back wall of the Gear Chest building is made of loose rocks and planks? Throw an oil jar at it, and it’ll crumble away.

Don’t go inside just yet, though. First, climb onto the wooden awning above the broken wall and throw a knife at the oil jars on the second floor. This will blow a hole in the floor that you can climb through. Go back down and through the hole you blew in the back wall. Pull the shelves over to the hole in the ceiling, then use them to climb up through the hole.

What’s inside the Four Markets Gear Chest?

You can now open the Four Markets Gear Chest and get yourself the Zanj Uprising Dagger, which is a perfect partner for the Zanj Uprising Sword that you can get in the Damascus Gate Prison Gear Chest. The Zanj Uprising Dagger has an effect that reads, “Successful Dodges refill 10% of Stamina.” As someone who found himself not only struggling with parrying early on, but spamming the dodge roll when surrounded, this can prove to be a great reward for similar players.
