Assassin’s Creed Mirage: Taking Flight Walkthrough

This guide goes through the events of Taking Flight in Assassin's Creed Mirage and shares tips on how to clear every objective easily.

Assassin's Creed Mirage Taking Flight

Taking Flight is the third main mission in Assassin’s Creed Mirage, which follows right after the final scenes of A New Beginning. This time, players get to see a wiser, more powerful Basim Ibn Ishaq in Alamut and his journey to becoming a full-fledged assassin of the Hidden Ones.

Read ahead as we go through the events of the mission “Taking Flight” in Assassin’s Creed Mirage and share some tips needed to complete every objective along the way.

Go to Al-Hasan’s Workshop

The mission begins with Basim meditating on top of a rock near the camp, overseeing the mountains. Walk forward onto the wooden plank and perform a leap of faith to get back to the camp. Then, cross the bridge ahead of you and follow the quest marker, which leads you to Al-Hasan’s workshop.

Arriving the the location will trigger a cutscene showing Al-hasan giving Basim an item wrapped in cloth that will be used on his initiation ceremony.

Initiation Ceremony

Fuladh will be waiting for you at the cave entrance. Follow the quest marker and cross the bridge, then veer to your left and go across the riverpath to reach the hidden cave.

Arriving at the location will trigger a short cutscene where Fuladh will praise Basim and give him his new assassin robes. Now walk with Fuladh along the linear path to reach the ceremonial hall. Then, approach the altar to start the initiation ceremony.

Duel with Roshan

Swearing loyalty to the Brotherhood and severing Basim’s finger as the sacrifice for the hidden blade sets the stage for the final objective: a duel with Roshan, this time on an equal level of skill.

Roshan will attack more often and usually charge right in front of you. The best way to defeat her and avoid taking damage is to parry. Once you do, this will break her stance and give you the opportunity to land about two to three hits per parry; hitting her more than that can be dangerous, so make sure to dodge backwards.

You won’t be able to see Roshan’s healthbar this time, so initiate the same moveset with the right timing, and the duel will end quickly before you know it.

As soon as you’ve racked up enough hits, a cutscene will start rolling. This depicts an injured Nur warning the Hidden Ones of unrest in Baghdad, signaling the beginning of the real journey for Basim as he sets out together with Roshan and Fuladh into the city to investigate. Once the cutscene ends, you’ll automatically complete the “Taking Flight” mission.
