CAUTION!
This article is only a guide. Information expressed in a guide is usually more opinion than fact and should be taken as such. Guides are written by players, based upon their experiences, successes and mistakes, and are meant to aid other players. However, there may be differing opinions than those expressed in a guide.
Strategies and information in guides may not work for everyone.


As of 2014, Assault can now be entered by 1-6 players. Most players will take this opportunity to clear Assaults solo, but some are fairly difficult to complete alone. This guide will give concise, yet comprehensive, instructions on completing each Assault, as well as giving a recommended job/subjob combination, difficulty level, and number of players needed. Much of the fluff will be removed, as all players are assumed to be wearing iLevel 117+ equipment. Time limit is 30 minutes unless indicated otherwise.

With the May 14, 2015 update, several assaults have been adjusted.

Getting to Captain

When you clear an Assault for the first time, you will receive 5 Mercenary Rank points. By completing all 5 Assaults for your current Rank, you will get the 25 points necessary to complete the next Promotion quest, beginning with Promotion: Private First Class and ending with Promotion: First Lieutenant. Completing all 50 Assaults plus Nyzul Isle Investigation (at least once; reaching floor 100 is not necessary) will allow you to flag Promotion: Captain.

Rytaal will hold three Imperial Army I.D. Tags for you, refreshing them every 24 hours. You can hold onto one tag yourself, allowing you to stockpile up to four at a time. Once you reach Captain rank, Rytaal will hold four tags for you, increasing your total to five.

If you complete chapter 1 of Rhapsodies of Vana'diel and obtain the Key ItemRhapsody in Azure, new I.D. Tags will be issued every 10 minutes.

Filling your Memoires

If you are working towards obtaining a Mythic Weapon, you must complete An Imperial Heist and then flag Duties, Tasks, and Deeds. You will need to clear all 50 Assaults again, but before exiting, you must trade the appropriate book to the Rune of Release.

Quick Reference

Private Second Class

Leujaoam Cleansing

LeujaoamCleansingMap.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD.

Objective: Kill all 14 Leujaoam Worms. Consult map.

  • Rune of Release will spawn at (I-8), through the north tunnel.

My run: Cleared in 8:59 as DRG/SAM.


Imperial Agent Rescue

ImperialAgentRescueMap.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Very Hard

Duo Difficulty: Easy

Recommended Jobs: Good healing, refresh, low evasion/parrying/shield, high defense. SCH/RDM, RDM/SCH, WHM/RDM.

Obtain a low-damage weapon and an armor set with no +evasion. For example, Orvail Armor Set.

As of May 14, 2015, Mamool Ja will use their TP abilities more frequently.

Objective: Find Brujeel.

  • There are three gates in the N, SW, and SE corners, and Brujeel will be behind a random one.
  • Lure a Mamool Ja to a gate and put yourself right up against it, so that any TP moves they use will hit the gate behind you. Do not allow a pet to gain enmity, as this will turn the mob.
    • There are four weapon-wielding Mamool Ja in the pit, and three more in the cavern area in the NW, NE, and S corners. Avoid or kill the NIN-type Mamool Ja that do not have weapons.
    • The gate will break when the gate is hit with Firespit 4 times, or once with Axe Throw or Staff Toss.
      • Axe Throw and Staff Toss become unusable after the Mamool Ja loses its weapon, which occurs frequently (~20%) upon receiving a critical hit or weapon skill. If it loses its weapon, quickly kill it using black magic or your main weapon, and grab a new Mamool Ja from the NW, NE, or S corner if necessary.
    • Being attacked by two or more mobs at a time may prevent you from checking the Pot Hatch. Kill quickly if this happens.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (J-8) in the middle.

My run: Failed as RNG/DNC. Did not anticipate the high likelihood of breaking weapons.

Failed as DRG/RDM. Wyvern often turned mobs, and could not dismiss without losing primary heal source.

Cleared in 11:31 as SCH/RDM. Two Mamools lost their weapons before Staff Toss was used; Brujeel was behind first gate. I believe I could have checked all three gates within the time given.


Excavation Duty

Solo Difficulty: Easy

ExcavationDutyMap.jpg

Recommended Jobs: Treasure Hunter, high attack speed. THF/DNC, DNC/THF, NIN/DNC, MNK/DNC.

Objective: Break all 5 Brittle Rock walls.

  • Damage against Brittle Rock caps at 20 from any source. Brittle Rock has roughly 2,325 HP.
  • Kill Qiqirn to obtain TemporaryQiqirn Mine. To use them, attack a wall, use the Qiqirn Mine, and stay engaged until it detonates (10 seconds). Qiqirn Mine will destroy the wall instantly. Disengaging from the wall will waste the mine.
  • See map. After the first wall, destroy the northern wall next, then head southeast and destroy the final three.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (E-10). Use Invisible to avoid Bombs.

My run: Cleared in 19:05 as THF/DNC with Atoyac (97 DMG 200 Delay) and Aphotic Kukri (91 DMG 200 Delay), 25% Haste, 25+5% Dual Wield, 9% Double Attack, 16+2% Triple Attack, and Haste Samba. Base damage against walls was roughly 13-18, 14-20 after inflicting Box Step level 5, with critical hits of 18-20. Obtained two Qiqirn Mines, but probably could have destroyed all 5 walls without any drops.


Seagull Grounded

SeagullGroundedMap.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Very Hard

Duo Difficulty: Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD with movement speed+, fast pulls, Flee. DRG/THF, MNK/THF, WAR/THF.

This Assault should not be attempted solo on a spotty internet connection.

Objective: Escort Excaliace to the end.

  • Unlike normal escort missions he cannot be controlled, though his behavior is predictable.
    • He will begin moving forward at 50% speed when you come within 10' of him. His path through the map is randomly set at the start of the Assault, and cannot be changed.
    • There are about 30 invisible "checkpoints" along his path.
      • If he arrives at a checkpoint and you are not within 10' of him, he will attempt to escape at 75% speed, heading back to the entrance. "Now's my chance!"
        • If he returns to the entrance, you will fail the Assault.
      • If you are within 5' of him at a checkpoint, he will stop. "Someone's been eating too much garlic..." Move more than 5' away and he will resume moving.
        • It is useful to trigger as many "garlic" messages as you can to figure out where exactly his checkpoints are.
      • If he is attempting to escape, coming to within 10' of him at his next checkpoint will stop him. "Damn..." Move more than 10' away and he will resume moving forward.
    • In the first half, he will investigate one of each pair of rooms (three total). If the room is empty, he will move to the end, stay still for about 20 seconds and then resume moving.
      • If there are mobs in the room, he will say "Over to you." and attempt to escape at 75% speed. He will continue doing this until the mobs are cleared.
        • If he appears to be heading into a crab-filled room, run ahead of him and aggro them as quickly as you can (e.g. if MNK/THF: Steal, Mug, Chi Blast). When you have all three or he says "Over to you.", pull them back to just before the intersection, and hold Excaliace there until the mobs are dead.
    • In the second half, he will choose either the West or East path. If a mob aggros him (i.e. if he sees or hears a mob) he will say "Wh-what the...!?" or "Uh-oh." or "H-help!!!" and begin fleeing at 100% speed. He cannot be stopped while fleeing. He will travel about two map squares backward until he gets tired <Pant>...<wheeze>..., and then stay still for about 40 seconds. If you do not reach him after he catches his breath, he will attempt to escape at 75% speed.
      • Try to quickly kill any mobs that he flees from, or pull them back to his position. If pulling, be careful not to lose aggro; periodically attack it again while running. You will have some free time to kill the mob while Excaliace recovers, but if he recovers while the mob is nearby, he will flee again. However, this is preferable to him attempting to escape, as he will not stop in that case.
    • When he reaches the SW corner of (H-9) he will pause for 20 seconds.
  • When he reaches (F-11)/(G-12) the Rune of Release will spawn nearby.
  • If you are attempting this with two or more players, assign one player to escort while the rest kill mobs, first in the three rooms and then in the two possible paths. Done correctly, he should never attempt to escape.

My run: Cleared in 29:01 as THF/DNC. It took three attempts to clear out a single crab room without letting him escape too far. Five mobs aggroed him on the West path, and he eventually fled all the way back to (H-6/7). My luck was fairly good; I give a less than 40% chance of success on any given solo attempt regardless of player skill.


Golden Salvage

GoldenSalvageMap.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD.

Objective: Find the treasure in a Cursed Chest.

  • Out of 12 Cursed Chests scattered around the area, 11 will be Mimics. The other will contain the objective.
    • Mimics have about 3500 HP and will continually use Draw In. They can be killed in under a minute by any DD.
    • Consult map. Pick a direction and hug one wall, opening any Cursed Chests you come across.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (H-7).

My run: Cleared in 14:02 as DRG/SAM. Objective was in the last possible spawn, forcing me to kill all 11 Mimics.

Private First Class

Orichalcum Survey

OricalchumSurveyMap.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Difficult

Duo Difficulty: Easy

Trio Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD with movement speed+, Flee.

This Assault is entirely luck-based. Difficulties given are based on testimony.

Objective: Retrieve an TemporaryOrichalcum Ore for Mulwahah.

  • Get a TemporaryPickaxe from Mulwahah at the start.
  • Examine Mining Points to mine. If you break your Pickaxe, return to Mulwahah to get a new one.
    • If a worm spawns, kill it and wait for its body to disappear.
    • If the Mining Point disappears, move on and find another one.
    • Consult map. There are two paths to explore: One going NE and wrapping around W then SE into a hole, and another going E/NE into a hole and then wrapping around SW, both returning to the start.
  • Once the Orichalcum Ore is found, all Qiqirn will become aggressive to the ore carrier. Avoid them with Invisible, or kill/sleep them.
  • After the ore carrier speaks to Mulwahah, the Rune of Release will spawn nearby.

My run: Failed once. Cleared in 21:25 as THF/DNC.


Preemptive Strike

PreemptiveStrike-PathMap.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD with mage sub or ranged attack (e.g. Pebble)

Objective: Kill all 13 Mamool Ja.

  • Consult map. There are 4 Mamool Ja on the top level; kill or aggro those before jumping down, as there are no paths back up.
    • Use Wide Scan to track down any mobs you may have missed. Mobs on the upper level can be pulled using magic or a ranged attack.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (I-7).

My run: Cleared in 17:02 as DRG/SAM. Killed 12 Mamools in 8 minutes, last Mamool was on the upper level. I would have certainly failed if I did not have Pebbles in my mog sack.


Lebros Supplies

Lebros Supplies.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Very Hard

Duo Difficulty: Difficult

Trio Difficulty: Easy

Recommended Jobs: Movement Speed+, Flee, AoE Sleep. BRD/THF if solo. In parties, THF, DNC/THF, and SMN/THF are acceptable.

As of May 14, 2015, a new item, TemporarySeafood Stewpot, has been added, which will fully feed all surrounding soldiers.

Objective: Feed all 12 soldiers.

  • You cannot use your own food items, as they will not work. You must get all food items as Temporary items from Yazuhma
  • See map for their locations (2 WSW, 2 SSW, 3 NW, 2 N, 3 SE).
  • When you start the Assault, and after feeding a soldier, talk to Yazuhma to receive a Temporary food item.
    • Yazuhma can only speak to one player at a time. Quickly advance through the conversation to allow your partners to get their food.
    • Each soldier requires 7 "points" of food to become full. Yazuhma will give you one of the following items at random:
    • In each group of 2-3 soldiers, each soldier will carry a unique buckler. This is an easy way to tell them apart. See legend on bottom-right of map.
  • Speaking to a soldier while carrying a food item will give it to them, even if they are full.
    • When speaking to a hungry soldier without food, they will say "Have you brought the provisions?"
      • A hungry soldier, when fed, will say "Thank Zahak you're here. I was about to start eating my boots!"
    • When speaking to a full soldier without food, they will say "There's nothing like a full belly to put the power back in your sword swing. I pity the next monster that crosses my path!"
      • After feeding a group of soldiers, it is wise to make sure they all give you this message, especially if you are forgetful.
      • A full soldier, when fed, will say "You brought more supplies? Well, you can never have too much..."
  • Be sure all party members are familiar with the walkthrough for this Assault. The best strategy is to send each party member off to feed a different group, and then have them help others once they are finished. The sixth player should be sent to the NW group as it is the furthest away.
  • Flee, Powder Boots, and Hermes Quencher boost movement speed to 200%. Flee effects will overwrite Quickening.
  • Rune of Release will spawn next to Yahzuma.

My run: Cleared in 20:57 with 6 players.

Post-update run: Cleared in 22:55 as BRD/THF with Shneddick Ring. Received 3 stewpots out of 15 food items, so it appears that the drop rate is the same as the other foods.


Requiem

RequiemMap.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD, prefer blunt damage type. MNK/DNC.

Objective: Kill all the monsters.

  • The south half has 6 Skeletons and 2 Ghosts. The north half has the same, plus 2 Doomeds.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (F-9).

My run: Cleared in 12:52 as MNK/WHM. Banish removes damage resistance from Undead, but only improved damage output by about 20%. Would have preferred Haste Samba.


Lamia No.13

LamiaNo13Map.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD.

Objective: Kill Lamia No.13.

  • Locate her on Wide Scan.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (H-8).

My run: Cleared in 2:15 as DRG/SAM.

Superior Private

Escort Professor Chanoix

EscortProfessorClavauertMap.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD, prefer blunt damage type. MNK/DNC.

Objective: Protect Clavauert B Chanoix until he reaches the room at either (J-5) or (G-9).

  • Chanoix wanders the cavern at random. At times he will pause for up to a minute, or switch directions. He will speak when he begins moving.
    • You can cast Protect, Shell, and Cure on him, but no other buffs.
    • He can be targeted on Wide Scan. It is useful to keep track of him this way.
  • The mobs in this area are Ghosts and Skeletons.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (I-8).

My run: Cleared in 11:52 as DRG/RDM.


Sagelord Elimination

SagelordEliminationMap.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD.

Objective: Kill Sagelord Molaal Ja.

  • He can be located on Wide Scan.
    • After losing 20% HP, he will use Warm-Up, and then run away at 200% speed. You can attack him once or twice while he is using Warm-Up.
    • Mamool Ja Trainees that he passes will link to you.
    • He will Warp out when he reaches 20% health.
  • Rune of Release spawns at (I-7)

My run: Cleared in 6:13 as DRG/RDM.


Troll Fugitives

TrollFugitivesMap.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Saving Private Ryaaf

SavingPrivateRyaafMap.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any.

Objective: Locate Ryaaf, Balarahb, and Rhagmakah.

  • There are 5 NPCs hunched over on top of the cages in each of the five rooms: North, West, South, East, and Center. Three of them will be target NPCs; the other two will be Fomor.
    • Fomor NPCs will always be facing East, whereas all target NPCs (except one spawning in the East room) will be facing in the other directions.
  • First check the North room. If the NPC is facing East, it is a Fomor.
    • If you find Balarahb, check East and Center.
    • If you find Rhagmakah, check West and Center.
    • If you find Ryaaf, check South and East.
    • If you find a Fomor, check the West room.
      • If you find Balarahb, check South and Center.

Extermination

ExterminationMap.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD.

  • Consult map.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (H-8).

My run: Cleared in 11:20 as DRG/RDM.

Lance Corporal

Shanarha Grass Conservation

Leujaoam sanctum LC.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD.

Objective: Kill all 20 Coneys.

  • They will all spawn in the starting room and gradually wander to the far north and far south rooms.
    • Coneys will link to each other by sight. You can gather many together this way.
    • After fighting for a short time (1-2 minutes) they will flee the battle. It is recommended to use AoE weapon skills or spells to finish them off quickly.
  • It is possible to fail this Assault if they eat too many grassy spots.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (I-9).

My run: Cleared in 10:29 as DRG/RDM.


Breaking Morale

Assault MamoolJaTG4.png

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any.

Time Limit: 15 minutes.

Objective: Find at least two items in chests around the map, and bring them back to Quhaaja.

  • You can only carry one item at a time.
    • The easiest chest to get is up the ramp to the left of where you exit the tunnel.
    • The second easiest chest is directly south of the tunnel, behind a tree.
  • If you are spotted by Mamool Ja Trainer, you will be teleported to the prison area, and any item you are carrying will be put back in the chest. You will find a pot of Viscous Liquid nearby, which will grant you a Mamool Ja Costume effect, which prevents Trainers from jailing you, but also applies -30 poison/tick and a slight movement speed debuff. It can be removed at any time.
  • After giving Quhaaja at least two items, he will give you the option to "Give up." This will spawn the Rune of Release at (H-6).

My run: Cleared in 3:46 as DRG/RDM.


Evade and Escape

Evade and Escape.JPG

Solo Difficulty: Difficult

Duo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Movement Speed+, Flee, some DD capacity. BRD/THF if geared for DD, otherwise DNC/THF, THF, SMN/THF.

As of May 14, 2015, the time to activate all three switches has been raised from 3 minutes to 5.

Objective: Find the three switches in the area, and activate them within 5 minutes of each other.

  • There are seven possible spawn locations. Check map.
    • The easiest possible configuration is 2x W, 1x SW. This does not require any movement speed+.
    • The hardest possible configuration is 1x NW, 1x NE, 1x SE. Using Flee, Chocobo Jig II, and Shneddick Ring, this path has been clocked at 4:10.
  • There are three Dahaks patrolling the area. They have True Sight and will use Draw In if you move too far away. Seek out and kill all three before attempting the switches.
    • They can be hard to kill on a non-DD job.
  • Once you have confirmed the three switches' locations, figure out an optimal path between them. Use Flee, then when it wears use Chocobo Mazurka, Chocobo Jig II, or Fleet Wind.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (H-8).

My run: Failed as BRD/THF; Dahaks were too difficult to kill.

Cleared in 17:46 as DNC/THF. Using Powder Boots, took 2:10 to hit NE, SW, and SE switches.


Shooting Down the Baron

Shooting Down the Baron.JPG

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD, prefer SMN, BST, or PUP.

Time Limit: 15 minutes.

Objective: Kill the Black Baron.

  • He does not show up on Wide Scan.
    • One of his possible TP moves will Warp him to a different location on the map. If he is killed quickly, he will not have a chance to do so.
      • If he does warp, an avatar, beast, or automaton will track his new location.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (I-8).

My run: Cleared in 3:15 as SMN/SCH. Black Baron spawned at (H-7) and used two TP moves before dying. Did not Warp once.


Demolition Duty

DemolitionDutyShortcut.png

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD/RDM, DD/WHM. Alternately, AoE-damage jobs such as BLU, BLM, GEO, SMN.

Objective: Use the Demolition Automaton to destroy 5 barriers.

  • Talk to Uzhahn at the start to cause the Automaton to follow you. See map.
  • When the Automaton is close to a barrier, it will initiate demolition mode. Cast Haste on the Automaton to speed it up.
    • After the Automaton uses a weapon skill, a Carrion Crab will spawn. The Crab will ignore you and attack the Automaton, dealing roughly 3% HP damage per hit.
  • Barriers cannot be targeted, but will take half damage from AoE attacks. This can be done by luring an imp to the barrier and casting -ga/-ra spells.
  • When all 5 barriers are destroyed, talk to Uzhahn again. The Rune of Release will spawn nearby.

My run: Cleared in 13:45 as DRG/RDM using only automaton.

Corporal

Counting Sheep

LeujaoamSanctum9a.png

Solo Difficulty: Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any.

Time Limit: 15 minutes.

Objective: Hire a Qiqirn Shepherd to free Karakul trapped by ice.

  • All items used in this Assault are Temporary. You cannot bring in an Imperial Gold Piece to win quickly.
  • Qiqirn Mine Baron will give you a Pickaxe to be used at Mining Points.
  • Qiqirn Shepherd requires 1 Gold, 4 Silver, or 20 Bronze. Once you have hired him, he will follow you around.
    • Examine the ice barrier at (I-9). It will take 1-4 mines to destroy it. After each mine, he may ask for a refreshment, but will not give up until the wall is destroyed.
  • Qiqirn Greengrocer will give you a Sickle to be used at Harvesting Points.
  • Qiqirn Dealer offers to roll dice with him. You must wager 5 Bronze or 1 Silver to play. Victory will earn you 1 Gold.
    • To win, you must beat the Dealer's score without exceeding 999. Each re-roll adds on to your previous.
    • Dealer plays optimally. Playing against him is not recommended. There is reason to believe he cheats and never busts as well.
  • Once you've examined a Karakul, the Rune of Release will spawn at the starting area.

My run: Cleared in 6:57 as BRD/THF. Obtained a copper ore and 3x silver ore. Each silver piece was used against Qiqirn Dealer; three failures. (737 vs 901, 20+814+933 vs 933, 785 vs 85+137+759) Then obtained gold ore. East wall required three mines; after first mine, Qiqirn Shepherd asked for Pamama Au Lait.


The Double Agent

MamoolJaTrainingGrounds1.png

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any.

Objective: Capture the traitor among the Qiqirn Spies.

  • Upon being Questioned, Qiqirn will only give one message; often it will be unhelpful. Some Qiqirn will indicate the direction of the traitor, and if he is "very very close". The traitor will always lie.
  • Attempting to Capture the wrong Qiqirn will reduce the Assault Points reward.
  • To win quickly, simply attempt to Capture every Qiqirn, or Question enough to isolate which group the traitor is in first.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (I-9).

My run: Cleared in 8:20 as BRD/THF. Two spies pointed to the west group. In the west group, one said target was very close, other three were unhelpful. Falsely accused two.


Siegemaster Assassination

LebrosCavern10.png

Solo Difficulty: Very Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any DD.

Objective: Kill Siegemaster Borgerlur.

  • Kill Old Trolls until Siegemaster Borgerlur spawns.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (G-7).

My run: Cleared in 3:30 as DRG/RDM.


Building Bridges

Buildingbridges.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Difficult

Recommended Jobs: Movement speed+, Flee. BRD/THF, DNC/THF, THF/BRD.

Time Limit: 15 minutes.

Objective: Activate all four switches.

  • The switches are located in the four rooms on each side of the map.
  • NPC Lamiae will detect by True Sight and chase after you. If they get within 5', you will be teleported to the start.
    • They do not show up on Wide Scan. If detected, you can often outrun them, but you may run into another Lamia. They will lose sight of you faster than normal mobs, especially if you take them out of their default patrol path.
    • Hiding just around corners and behind pillars will often keep you out of sight while the Lamia passes you, due to their narrow sight cone. It is typically impossible to bypass Lamia in a hallway or curve.
    • It is possible, but not recommended, to run past Lamia by interrupting your internet connection at strategic moments.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (H-8).

My run: Cleared in 11:08 as BRD/THF.


Searat Salvation

Searatsalvation.jpg

Solo Difficulty: Difficult

Recommended Jobs: Movement speed+, Flee. BRD/THF, DNC/THF, THF/BRD.

Time Limit: 15 minutes.

Objective: Guide the Qiqirn Divers to the Qiqirn Diver Chief at (J-6).

  • Talk to all five Qiqirn to make them follow you. They will follow closely at about 112% speed. Only one Qiqirn is necessary to complete this Assault, so it is okay if you lose track of a few.
  • Avoid the Giant Orobons that patrol the map. They are NPCs and cannot be attacked, and will ignore players.
    • Unlike normal Orobons, these have long and narrow Sight aggro. If a Qiqirn aggros a Giant Orobon, they will give a message and begin fleeing to predetermined hiding spots located around the map.

Supplies Recovery

Supplies.png

Solo Difficulty: Difficult (Item Level 119 Easy)

Recommended Jobs: Any DD, prefer piercing, Flee. DRG/THF, DNC/THF.

Objective: Kill Imps and retrieve more supply packages than the two BLU NPCs.

  • Imps will spawn after you talk to Kuihlud. See map for spawn locations.
  • If Gasharyad or Salimuhi take any offensive action against your target, you will not be able to get supplies from it. Even if you land the killing blow, they have a chance of getting supplies.
    • One imp will spawn at the starting location. They will kill it in about 2 minutes, and then head for the nearest target, ignoring terrain.
  • Immediately after talking to Kuihlud, use Flee and aggro the three imps in the main room, then go through the hallway to collect three more.
    • Kill all six, and then head to the northmost room at (H-7). Most likely, the two BLUs will have killed the Imp at the start and the two Imps at (H-8), and may be working on one of the two Imps in the north room.
  • After all 11 Imps have been killed, the mission will end. If you retrieved more packages than the BLUs, Rune of Release will spawn at (J-7).

My run: Failed as DRG/THF. Killed 7 imps, got 2 supplies vs 2.

Cleared in 7:30 as DNC/THF. Killed 7 imps, got 4 supplies vs 1.

Periqia1.png

Solo Difficulty: Difficult

Recommended Jobs: Any DD.

Objective: Kill all 35 Augmented Chigoes.

  • Like all Chigoes, they do not show up on Wide Scan, have visible nametags, or become targetable until you aggro them. Search very thoroughly all hallways, and the open area. In the rooms, be sure to check on top of, behind, and around the cages.
  • Chigoe Breeders patrol the area and will cast potent tier-IV spells. Keep your HP topped off.

Apkallu Seizure

IlrusiAtoll1.png

Solo Difficulty: Very Hard

Recommended Jobs: Any.

Do not attempt this Assault on a spotty internet connection.

Objective: Guide a Fairy Apkallu back to Clavauert B Chanoix.

  • Examine ??? around the area to get a TemporaryRareHamsi.
  • To capture a Fairy Apkallu: (Macro /bow and /welcome before you start)
    • Place yourself directly in its path, and stop moving.
    • Message: "The fairy apkallu is staring at you."
    • /bow to it. Desired message: "The fairy apkallu seems to have let down its guard a bit."
    • Immediately /welcome it. (Do not wait for the reaction message, the window to reply seems incredibly short/bugged)
    • Desired message: "The fairy apkallu seems to like you."
    • Immediately press enter/click the Apkallu to try and trade the TemporaryHamsi, if your attempts to bow/welcome were not successful you don't lose the Hamsi.
    • Desired messages: "You give the Hamsi to the Fairy Apkallu." "You successfully capture the Fairy Apkallu!". Quickly position yourself behind the Apkallu and move to the escort phase.
    • If you weren't successful, repeat the steps above.
  • To escort a Fairy Apkallu:
    • After capturing, you have roughly 3 seconds to get into position. The proper position is directly behind it, in melee striking range (i.e. a valid Sneak Attack position).
    • It will begin moving towards Clavauert on a fixed path at 50% speed. When it turns, you must reposition yourself directly behind it.
      • It is useful to stay locked-on.
      • If at any point it sees you or another player, or you are out of position for more than 3 seconds, it will get scared and run all the way back to its spawn point.
      • Be very cognizant of rock outcroppings in the path, as the apkallu will ignore terrain. You must escort it up the rock and then quickly run around and get back into position to continue.
    • Once it reaches Clavauert, he will give a message, and the Rune of Release will spawn nearby.

My run: Cleared in 4:52 as DRG/RDM. Do not be deceived; I had the most practice during my initial Assault runs with a group.

Lost and Found

IlrusiAtoll2.png

Solo Difficulty: Difficult

Duo Difficulty: Easy

Recommended Jobs: Any.

Objective: Find the Eye of Zahak.

Talk to Tian Tian to make her follow you. If another party member talks to her, she will follow them.

  • Stage 1: Find hints (Solo requires at least 2 hints to find the ring)
    • Talking to Tian Tian will make her stop for 10-30 seconds while she surveys the area. She will attempt to locate the nearest ??? within about 25'. Her messages will go from "I don't think we'll find anything around here." (none in area) to "Yes!... it's very very close.".
      • If she adds "But... I don't think this is it.", the nearby ??? is seaweed, which is useless and adds a Weight effect.
      • If she adds "Oh! There is a frighteningly powerful energy in the air here!...", the nearby ??? will spawn a Crab.
      • Tian Tian will continue locating the nearest ??? even if it is one you have already examined. Be sure you explore separate parts of the map.
      • These messages cannot be used to locate the Eye of Zahak, only seaweed, crabs, or hints.
    • If the ??? is not seaweed or a Crab, and you are "very very close," begin targeting around the area while walking slowly around. It will take a second or so for FFXI to update your location. The ??? will appear when you are within 1' of it, and disappear when you move away.
  • Stage 2: Find the ring
    • From here you can ignore the first part of her dialogue and focus solely on her direction/distance information to locate the ring.
    • Examining a hint ??? will add new messages to Tian Tian's divination regarding the Eye of Zahak's location.
      • With one hint, she will say which player is closest to the Eye.
        • By placing multiple players in different locations, you can use triangulation to determine its location.
      • With two hints, she will say the direction the Eye is located in.
        • A solo player can locate the Eye by triangulating from different locations.
      • With three hints, she will give the distance as well.
  • Rune of Release will spawn at (I-9) on the ship.

Azure Ailments

MamoolJaTrainingGrounds8.png

Solo Difficulty: Difficult

Recommended Jobs: Good healing, refresh, low evasion/M.evasion/parrying/shield, high defense. WHM/RDM, SCH/RDM, RDM/SCH.

Obtain a low-damage weapon and an armor set with no item level. For example, Teal Saio Set.

As of May 14, 2015, the number of ailments needed has been reduced from 5 to 3.

Objective: Demonstrate three unique status ailments to Garjham.

  • Amnesia: Inflicted by Qiqirn Huckster's Kibosh.
    • Qiqirn Huckster is located on the upper levels of the W, S, and E areas.
  • Bio: Spell cast by Poroggo.
    • Poroggo is located in the SE and far N tunnels.
  • Disease: Inflicted by Pit Lindwurm's Foul Breath.
    • Pit Lindwurm is located in the E area.
  • Slow: Inflicted by Huge Spider's Spider Web, Pit Lindwurm's Chomp Rush or Ripper Fang.

    • Slavering Lizard is located in the S area.
  • While wearing your iLevel gear, buff up with Protect V, Shell V, Phalanx (II), Refresh (II), Sneak, Invisible. Pull the following enemies: 2x Pit Lindwurms (S room), 2x Lizards (S room), 2x Leech (N tunnel). Bring everyone back to the center room, so that you can quickly turn in status ailments as you receive them.
    • Poroggos are not recommended due to their tendency to cast high-tier elemental magic and Charm.
    • Bugards are not recommended due to their low attack speed and high damage.
  • Mamool Ja Warders do not give any of the required status ailments. If you accidentally pulled any of them, kill them with black magic or your best weapon.
  • Switch to your non-iLevel gear and low-damage weapon. If enemies appear to be hitting you for 0 damage, remove your Phalanx effect. Cast Haste and begin auto-attacking monsters that you have pulled 2 or more of. Be extremely cognizant of your HP and MP counts.
    • Dia and Diaga deal very little damage but will quickly build enemy TP when spammed.
    • Enemies will use TP abilities more often when they are under 25% HP.
    • Staff weaponskill Spirit Taker will restore a large amount of MP.
    • SCH can use Sublimation. Keep Light Arts active to maximize Cure potency.
    • RDM can use Refresh II, /RDM Refresh. If you must use Convert be sure to equip your iLevel gear until you are out of the red.
    • WHM should avoid Afflatus Solace, because Stoneskin effects prevent enemy TP gain.
  • Once you have received a status ailment, disengage and turn it in to Garjham. After he records the data, switch to your iLevel gear and kill the monsters you no longer need.

My run: Failed as BRD/DNC. The idea was high attack speed, low evasion. Ran out of time due to not enough enemies engaged.

Failed twice as DRG/RDM. Died due to too many enemies.

Failed as DNC/RDM. Died due to too many enemies.

  • Three NPC guards are posted at the entrance to the hallways. They will die in one hit. If any mobs reach Kadjaya, you will fail the assault.
  • Incoming mobs approach at 50% speed. Kill them with AoE magic. Most enemies will die to a single Stonega.
    • Check the hallways with Wide Scan. It is generally safer to stay in the center so you are not caught off-guard or out of Wide Scan range.
  • New waves will begin when you kill the slightly tougher Troll Combatants.
  • After killing several trolls, an NPC will shout "What is this foul creature!? Guards, to my side immediately!" Jorporbor the Hellraker will spawn in one of the hallways and approach at 100% speed.
    • Once you have pulled Jorporbor, be sure to continue killing approaching mobs with Stonega.
  • When you have killed Jorporbor, all enemies will despawn, and Rune of Release will spawn nearby.

  • /salute at the automaton to register as its escort. It will respond to targeted emotes given within 10'. You can only register one automaton at a time.
    • It will not automatically follow you. /clap to make it move to your position.
    • When you have reached Adeeha, /goodbye to make it shut down.
    • /hurray will cause the automaton to attack any Wights that you engage.
    • If the automaton stops and begins emoting, you must use the corresponding emote to return it to normal:
      • Bowing: /kneel
      • Pointing: /no

Once there, /goodbye at the automaton, and then kill the Wight, and it will shut down. This is far faster than the traditional method of using /clap every few feet.
    • Automatons will aggro Wights, so if you encounter one on your path be sure to attack it too.

  • After killing a few more monsters near the excited NPC, their dialogue will change again. This will indicate the location of the Orobon.
    • Technically an inlet describes a narrow passage through which water enters an enclosed area, like a bay or lagoon. However, the way the NPCs use "inlet" typically refers to a small indentation in the coast.
