In the unforgiving world of Assassin’s Creed Mirage, knowing how to restore your HP effectively is crucial. Especially when you have a dozen guards running after you.

Although there are many tips that can help you in the game, mastering the basics is just as important.

Fear not; we are here to help! This guide will provide you with essential tips on healing and restoring your health in Assassin’s Creed Mirage.

After learning that, you won’t be as afraid of guards and archers.

Consume an Elixir

Elixirs serve as your immediate remedy when the battlefield turns treacherous. To utilize them efficiently, follow these steps:

  • Press down on the d-pad to access your inventory.
  •   Select an elixir and consume it by pressing the corresponding button.

Elixirs will recover a significant part of your health. Be careful, though. You can only carry so many of these.

Be cautious and save them for extremely dangerous circumstances. You don’t want to run out of elixirs during a particularly hard infiltration section.

These are also very handy if your Notoriety Level has gone all the way up, and now you have to fight an elite guard to have some tranquility.

Chances are, without elixirs, you won’t be able to win this fight. It isn’t impossible, but the stress and time it can take makes it not worth it.

Look for Food and Cooking Pots

Find some food around the city for a more sustainable approach to restoring your HP. 

Eating also recovers your health. Although food isn’t as effective as an elixir, you don’t spend anything to regain health that way. 

Besides, you can keep running around and looking for food until your health bar is completely replenished. 

Yes, consuming food is a very old-school approach to restoring health, but this is how it works in Assassin’s Creed Mirage. 

Here’s how to do it:

  • As you approach a food source or a cooking pot, an on-screen prompt will appear, inviting you to press the ‘triangle’ button or whichever button is assigned to picking an item in your game.
  •  Pressing the button will make Basim eat the food, making you instantly restore some health.

Note that Basim won’t eat any food if your health bar is full. So, don’t worry too much about eating unless you have taken a lot of damage.

Besides, you will probably keep running into cooking pots as you explore Baghdad. 

Buy Elixir from Merchants

As mentioned above, you can only carry a limited number of elixirs. However, this is not a major inconvenience if you are not being chased.

If you ever need more elixirs, you can always buy some from merchants in Baghdad.

Just search for them around the city. There are various merchants selling crafting materials and consumables.

Once you find a merchant, buy as many Elixirs as you can. If you hang out way too much in an area of the city, make sure you spend a Merchant Favor Token to lower the merchant’s prices.

Going to a merchant and restocking from time to time can be annoying or pace-breaking.

Yet, in the grand scheme of things, this simple solution ensures you never run dry in times of need.

Final Thoughts

Although you should refrain from fighting guards too frequently, it sure happens.

At times, you will get caught because of a slip or just because your Notoriety Level is too high.

Even worse, you might miscalculate a jump, lose health for falling from way too high, and land in front of a tough enemy.

For those reasons and a few others, knowing how to restore your health in Assassin’s Creed Mirage is crucial to keeping Basim alive. 

However, do not just waste your Elixirs by using them whenever you lose health. Food sources should be your first choice if you have the time to spare. 

Also, you should probably make sure that you are keeping your elixir supply well-stocked.

By following all the tips ahead, you’ll be better prepared to overcome any obstacles this game throws your way.
