  • Use Enkidu to seek out the Gardener who holds the basement key.
    • You’ll find the Gardener on the roof across from the entrance to the House of Wisdom.

I recommend you have some tools on hand because the basement is crawling with guards. You’ll want to activate Eagle Vision once you enter, and be sure to stay vigilant. I made my way through the area by utilizing my throwing knives, and tranquilizer darts as I darted between cover. There will be numerous cages you can open and hide in as you make your way through the area.

Well, that does it for how to access the basement for the Great Symposium quest in Assassin’s Creed Mirage. Check out our guides hub here for more tips, tricks, and walkthroughs.
