  • You start in (H-8).
  • Search the boats and surrounding areas for a chest which contains the golden figurehead. All but one chest is a mimic. There are 12 chests within the zone.
  • From the start, there are three unconnected areas to search: to the NE and SW are areas with 3 chests each and no Pugils; the rest of the enemies are in the NW area.
  • Find the golden figurehead and you will be informed that the mission is over and to proceed to the evacuation area at the crossroads in (H-7).
  • At the evacuation area there will be another chest. Open it for your rewards.
  • Use the evacuation teleport to warp back to the staging area and receive your Assault Points.
  • This Assault mission can easily be soloed by a SMN or someone with SMN as their support job (though you must still have the minimum 3 members to enter).
  • The person wishing to solo this must summon an avatar, if SMN is your main job, it can be any avatar. If it is your support job, it is recommended that you use Garuda with Aerial Armor. With your avatar out, run up and check the chest, if it is a mimic, allow your avatar to pull hate and then run away to a safe distance.


  • Death Trap from the mimics can be Stunned.
  • The mimics will Draw In the player with the most hate if they are within 20'.
  • Try to avoid the pugils. There is no need to fight them unless you get aggro.
