Al-Azhdaha is a tricky man to assassinate. He is the key remaining piece in Assassin’s Creed Mirage‘s “Find The Missing Brother” investigation. He is also, unsurprisingly, in cahoots with your sworn enemy: The Order! However, finding this shady surgeon isn’t as easy as waltzing into his office and making an appointment, it involves engaging in some genuinely tricky skullduggery.
In order to locate the (not-so-good) doctor, you’re going to need to gather intel, pickpocket keys, take out barricaded doors, and slink into his hidden laboratory. Only then will you be able to perform a little surgery of your own and complete your investigation!
Where To Find The Great Bimaristan
The first thing you need to do is head to The Great Bimaristan, where you know Al-Azhdaha summoned Ahmad ibn Musa to. You’ll find The Great Bimaristan in the southwest corner of Abbasiyah.
The Dome of the Ass Viewpoint is just a little east of it (so, if you haven’t unlocked that already, now is a good time to do that).
How To Get Into Al-Azhdaha’s Office
Once you arrive, you will need to figure out where the doctor is. You can ask around if you like. However, you will ultimately be led to Al-Azhdaha’s office, which is on the northwest side of the first floor. Unfortunately, it will be locked.
So, you will need to track down the key, which is held by a nurse. Head for the east end of the building. The nurse will patrol through the giant room filled with patient bedding. Sneak up behind her and pickpocket the key. Once you have it, head back to the office and investigate.
Once inside the office, you’ll need to find all the evidence that Al-Azhdaha has been up to no good. Check the bookshelf on the left, near the door and investigate the letter sitting on the table at the back of the room. You will also now be able to eavesdrop on a group of people in the courtyard.
How To Get Into Al-Azhdaha’s Private Laboratory
The quest marker will lead you to the second floor of The Great Bimaristan, but it doesn’t tell you exactly where you need to go. Everything you need will be on the west side of the second floor. You can, of course, just climb the stairs, but that will mean you’ll need to fight a bunch of guards. The better approach is to head outside and climb up to the second floor from the southwest corner of the building. There will be a single guard patrolling this area. Take them out.
Now you should see a barred window nearby. Look through the bars and throw a knife at the barricade holding the door shut. You’ll need to work your way around to that door now. On your way there, you’ll find a number of guards, including a captain posted in front of the laboratory. Thankfully, you have plenty of shrubs to hide in and assassinate guards from.
You won’t be able to get into Al-Azhdaha’s office, yet. That door you opened wasn’t for his laboratory. Instead, it unlocked the door to the room beside his laboratory. Enter that room. From here, you will be able to hear Al-Azhdaha say some pretty incriminating things while monologuing to himself. In this room, there is a bookshelf that you will be able to slide over to the right. Once you do, get on top of it. Standing on it will allow you to see through the barred window at the top of the room and into Al-Azhdaha’s laboratory.
Thankfully, the space between those bars is quite wide, and you will be able to easily toss a dagger through them. Aim for the barricade holding the window shut. All that you have to do at this point is circle back around, enter in through the window, and you will be able to “confront” Al-Azhdaha and complete your investigation.
