Assassin's Creed Unity Taurus Nostradamus Enigma guide

Taurus Nostradamus Enigma is acquired in the Invalides district of Les Invalides zone in Assassin’s Creed Unity. This is a three star difficulty Enigma.
The starting location is bellow a stone bridge. This part of the map is unique due to a large presence of soldiers. This shouldn’t surprise you since this area serves as their main hospital and military school. This enigma is special because it is one of a few that have four riddles for you to solve. Taurus Enigma side mission will reward you with a Nostradamus fragment, which, when all collected, unlock a special Assassin’s outfit in the secret basement room of Cafe Theatre.

Taurus Enigma Starting Location

1st Taurus Riddle Solution

Sending signals through air,
Made of wood and rope,
Chappe’s friends took note.

With easier Enigmas sometimes it is best to turn on your Eagle Vision and scan the area close to where you get the first riddle. This uncovered the solution to the first Taurus riddle for me right away. Upon further research I found out that Claude Chappe used these wooden contraptions as telegraphs.

2nd Taurus Riddle Solution

All men must walk,
Through gates that lead,
To the fields of War.

While going to the starting location of this enigma I’ve noticed a large number of NPCs waiting in lines under a stone gate. That seemed to fit the riddle perfectly and I got lucky to find the solution there without having to do a lot of research. Gate is located east of where you found the solution to the previous riddle.

3rd Taurus Riddle Solution

False idols, celebrate,
On stage they entertain.
Supreme is the Being,
Who calls himself so.

By now I figured that all riddle solutions are close to each other so I scanned the nearby area with eagle vision. I then noticed a large statue on top of a high stone pillar close by and figured I must get closer to it and see if that’s the “false idol” mentioned in the riddle. I found the solution to the third riddle in front of the statue on a wooden platform. Upon some research it turns out there was a Cult of the Supreme Being formed during the French Revolution and they had a festival held next to that tall statue. (the more you know …)

The Final Riddle Solution

Schooled minds guide,
The tides of battles.
Over the shoulders of angels,
They watch the fields of War.

“Schooled minds” seemed like a hint at place where you can find people learning something. I was lucky enough that there is just such place nearby. It is Ecole Militaire just south of the previous solution’s location. This military school seemed to fit the riddle perfectly. “Fields of War” refer to Champ de Mars field in front of Ecole Militaire. “Over the shoulders of angels” felt like I should be looking at some stone statues. After a while I finally found the location of the solution on top of the entrance of Ecole Militaire. It is located almost on its highest point, just under a small clock.

    Dude… You. Are. AWESOME! My husband and I were having such a hard time figuring out these riddles until we came across your site. I’m so grateful that you took the time to research and explain the connections to the riddles, I’m a big believer in “the more you know”. Thanks again ๐Ÿ™‚

    Is anyone else struggling with the interaction button? I’m on Taurus, I’ve done all the riddles together but the 3rd won’t let me “interact” with it? Anyone having this problem?

    1. There are other reports with the same issue but on the different Enigmas. People fix the problem with re-starting the game, getting really close to the enigma spot, checking the different angles and so on…

        Anyone find any new fixes? I’ve restarted the game, changed to new enigma mission, kept the riddle open until at the place it goes to, and nothing. Even when I went from Pisces to Cancer then Cancer wouldn’t let me do the second part after Pisces wouldn’t let me do the third.

          The 3rd Taurus symbol is on the stage in the middle of the courtyard, not ontop of the building
