As a returnee after three years away, one thing that I've been trying to do is to acquire a few missing Achievements for the X360 version before it shuts down at the end of this month. I definitely intend to continue playing on PC thereafter, but I'm trying to hit those areas I neglected way back when. One of these is Assault missions, and the Achievement for obtaining Captain Rank.

I bought a bunch of i117 Sparks gear for my 99THF/DNC and was able to solo most of the Assault missions just on my own using this guide. However, there are still I have yet to complete, and I'd appreciate any help I could get.

Here they are:

Some notes from previous attempts at a few of the above un-highlighted missions:

  • Lost and Found is hard solo (0/4 so far), and basically a matter of luck, since the one hint you get is who the buried treasure is closest to. This is definitely one where, the more people doing it, the easier it can be.

  • Building Bridges was hard solo, both because of the time limit and the fact that if you are seen, you get warped to the start. Granted, the more people I had to help me, the less spots we'd each individually need to tag. In the end, I hit all 4 solo but got warped on my way to the final release point and it was over after that.

  • Operation: Black Pearl I can't do as a THF. I do have a BLM so I could try it on there but that one (and also Escort Professor Chanoix) definitely aren't ones I can solo the way I've been trying so far.



That's just the ones that jump out at me as being troublesome. The others I haven't completed but didn't mention I can still give it a go solo, but the ones I did mention above are really a drag and I'm hoping some people can help me complete them.

If anyone has friends that wouldn't mind helping me knock those last remaining irksome Assaults out of the way, I'd be super-grateful! I am on Phoenix :)

Here's a tip for Black Pearl: Sub BLM or RDM so you can grab everything in one path with either Stonega or Diaga. Once you have them, no need to kill them right away. Head back and find the other group. Kill everything from both groups except 1 troll; leave this troll alive at all times, or at least don't kill two trolls at once. This will reduce the number of approaching waves to one at a time, and anything you have hate on will ignore the NPCs.

Thanks, this helped. I went in THF/WHM and failed (didn't realize they'd spawn in two different tunnels, so then I said "forget it" and changed to BLM/RDM for the win. Stonega killed everything in one hit but trolls, which I kept slept and would just kill one.

I'm down to only needing that darn Lost and Found one, which is hell to solo, so I'm still welcoming any help on Phoenix for it if available!

EDIT: Got it! All done - woohoo! Special shoutout to Keisar for helping me out!
