Stealing Medicine Samples in The Botanist Contract Mission of Assassin's Creed Mirage

Medicine Samples AC Mirage – While Assassin’s Creed Mirage may be shorter in terms of ‘time to beat’ compared to its predecessors, there’s no shortage of exciting activities to keep you engaged in the vibrant, bustling ninth-century Baghdad. Contract Missions are a fantastic way to dive into the game’s side activities, offering a break from the main storyline, and ‘The Botanist’ is one such contract available at a Hidden Ones’ Bureau.

Completing this contract not only rewards you with one of the two upgrade schematics for the Rostam Dagger but also provides other valuable resources. However, the game doesn’t exactly hold your hand when it comes to locating the three medicine samples required to complete this mission. Fear not; I’m here to guide you through it!

To accept Contracts in Assassin’s Creed Mirage, make your way to the Contracts Board at any Hidden Ones’ Bureau, such as the one at Harbiyah. “The Botanist,” in particular, becomes available on the Contract Board only after you’ve successfully completed another contract: “The Satirical Poet.” This particular side mission, an escort/bodyguard quest, rewards you with the Rostam Dagger, whose upgrade schematic you’re about to obtain.

AC Mirage: How to Steal the Medicine Samples

The primary objective of ‘The Botanist’ contract is to collect three medicine samples from the Pharmacy of Haylanah and deliver them to Abu Jafar’s stash. The Pharmacy is a Restricted Area situated in the southwest part of the city, in Abbasiyah.

Here’s how to easily locate the right jars and steal the medicine samples:

1. Eliminate the Guards

As you’d expect from a Restricted Area, it’s heavily patrolled by hostile guards. To make your life easier, start by eliminating them silently using your assassin skills. Fewer guards mean a smoother search for the medical samples. Moreover, the Contract’s secondary objective (Contractor Request) challenges you to remain undetected throughout the mission. So, go the stealth route if you’re aiming for those extra rewards.

For stealth, use the flower beds and the thick grass in the middle of the area to stay out of sight. Also, consider wearing the Rostam Outfit to reduce Basim’s movement noise.

2. Look for the Pots

With the guards out of the picture, you can begin your search for the three pots containing the medicine samples. Golden pots are scattered throughout the area, but beware, opening the wrong one will release a deadly cloud of poison that can quickly drain Basim’s health and prove fatal if his health is already low.

The correct pots containing the medicine samples are marked with an ‘X,’ and you can find them in three distinct locations within the Pharmacy of Haylanah:

  • Near the central garden area.
  • At the northwestern end of the garden.
  • Inside a building along the western boundary of the area.

To make your search even more straightforward, use Eagle Vision to locate the pots, as they will glow with an orange hue when highlighted. Once you’ve secured the required medicine samples, leave the area and follow the quest marker to return to Abu Jafar’s stash. Here, you can complete your mission and collect your rewards, including the Rostam Dagger Upgrade Schematic.
