Celeste's Awesome ToAU guide (We miss you Erecia!)
~~Interactive Assault Mission Guide~~
ToAU1 - Land of Sacred Serpents
Approach Naja Salaheem at (I-10) in Aht Urhgan Whitegate.
ToAU2 - Immortal Sentries
Find an NPC at any of the staging points.
[yellow]Here is a thread[/yellow] with all of the staging points, I think. I know for a fact that the Mount Zhaylom one is correct. The Azouph Isle one is also correct. Be careful of the true sight imps and doomed toads on the way. The one in mamook is semi-correct. In order to get to Mamook you have to go through the bushes, NOT any caves. We came from the north towards (D-12) in Waojam, so I'mnot positive if there are any bushes when coming from the east. Ilrusi Atoll is also accurate. Going to do Dvucca Isle a lot later tonight cuz I'm stupid and forgot sneak wasn't up^^. You get 150 Imperial Standing points after trading the guy the supplies, but this only occurs once, meaning if you find others after this mission you won't get any Imperial Standing.
After talking to any of the NPC's, go back and talk with Naja Salaheem. After this cutscene you get access to Mog Lockers and become a mercenary! This means you can now get sanction from the gate guards and use your imperial status points and currency.
Title Obtained: Private Second Class
ToAU3 - President Salaheem
Talk to the main guy at the Commissions Office (Assault HQ :D) named Rytaal at (K-10) in Aht Urhgan Whitegate. He'll explain assault to you and you'll be able to undertake Assault missions!
I'm not sure if you can do this right after talking to her for the end of ToAU2, but if you talk to Naja again you get a CS about Mog Lockers. You can then talk to Fubruhn at (F-11) for info about your Mog Locker. Again, I'm not sure how much of this is actually part of the mission, but it is all stuff Naja tells you about...
After waiting for Japan to hit midnight (that's 11 EDT, 8 PDT while we are in daylight savings, 10 EST, 7 PST if we aren't)talk to Naja again and you will get a cutscene involving Raillefal.
ToAU4 - Knight of Gold
Talk to Cacaroon (G-11) near the mog house in Whitegate. He'll ask for an Imperial Bronze Piece. If he doesn't, it means you've started a quest with him. If this is the case, talk to him again without zoning or anything and you should get this CS. If you turn him down, instead you'll be asked to pay 1000 gil. If you don't turn him down you'll have to pay a Bronze Piece. If you were lucky enough to get them from trading in your four Lure of the Wildcat invitation cards you should already have 3. If not, you can purchase one from Ugrihd at (G-9) for 20 Imperial Standing points. There are also a couple of easy quests you can do that give you Bronze Pieces, you can find them on other threads in this forum.
After trading Cacaroon the Bronze Piece or 1000 gil, head over to the temple at (K-7) and approach the Gordeus (spinning thing) to get a CS.
After that, head to the tea house at (K-12) and you will get a CS as you approach. I'm fairly sure any choices you make in the CS have no effect on any outcome. (He's Prince Trion from San d'Oria btw)
ToAU5 - Confessions of Royalty
Head to Chateau d'Oraguille and talk to Halver at (I-9).
ToAU6 - Easterly Winds
Wait until midnight JST again and approach the Audience Chamber in Ru'Lude Gardens for a CS. You get 10 Imperial bronze pieces afterwards.
ToAU7 - Westerly Winds
Approach the tea house again back in Aht Urhgan for the next CS.
You recieve an Imperial silver piece this time. Go back and talk to Naja again and you get ANOTHER Imperial silver piece and a new title.
Title Obtained: Agent of the Allied Forces
ToAU8 - A Mercenary's Life
Zone out of Aht Urhgan Whitegate, come back, then zone into Salaheem's Sentinels for a cutscene.
ToAU9 - Undersea Scouting
Zone into the Alzadaal Undersea Ruins ((F-6) Bhaflau Thickets) and approach the sliding doors. I used the northwestern Bhaflau Thickets entrance, but presumably any entrance will work. Get a long cutscene. Receive the key item "astral compass".
ToAU10 - Astral Waves
Go back and talk to Naja.
ToAU11 - Imperial Schemes
Wait one game day (perhaps try and farm the Jody's Acid needed for mission 12), zone, and re-enter Salaheem's Sentinel's. Another fairly long CS.
ToAU12 - Royal Puppeteer
Go to Nashmau and find Pyopyoroon on the bottom level of (H-7). He requests a rare/ex item Jody's Acid, dropped by the malboro-type mobs in Bhaflau/Wajaom. In return, he gives you the key item "Vial of spectral scent". There is some confusion as to whether each party member requires this; I would think so.
ToAU13 - Lost Kingdom
Go west out of Nashmau to the graveyard for a CS, and a fight with a Fomor NM. We took this down easily with 75 BRD RDM NIN MNK. Get another key item, "Ephramadian gold coin".
ToAU14 - The Dolphin Crest
Back to Naja! /shocked
ToAU15 - The Black Coffin
Head to Arrapago Reef from Dvucca Isle staging point. H-8 of map 5 on ffxi-atlas.com. Get some cutscenes, then fight an uncapped (but buffs wear) BC against 5 shadows (2 Mithra RDM, 2 Hume COR, 1 Hume MNK). After you kill these, they respawn along with a captian NM. Bring the captain down to 20% for the win.
The shadows resisted Lullaby heavily, but Gessho (Yagudo NPC) fights with you, and you can let him do the initial aggro if you feel like it. You can also have someone AoE them and kite (you can run in a circle up the steps behind you). We won using 75 NIN RDM BRD MNK DRG without too much trouble.
I'm not sure if this works (our group didn't try it), but you may wanna try to kill the last shadow in the first wave up on the top deck (behind the start point) so that when the second wave pops you don't get aggro. Then you can rest up before the 2nd wave.
Note that if you enter and exit this BC (win, lose, warp out), you may have to go re-obtain a coin from the graveyard. Don't know if you have to redo the NM fight. That means if you have friends who are helping you but have already completed the BC, they need to go and get another coin before being able to enter the BC.
Jibini brings up a good point. This isn't actually a BC, but an Assault. This is why you need to reaquire the coin. You can't do an assault without orders. This also means if you wipe and can't reraise you have to wait the full 30 minutes before you get booted out of the arena.
If you're repeating the Assault to help people out, take an Imperial Silverpiece with you when you go to get the coin again. Once you have it, head southwest, go into Alzadaal. Take the teleporter inside (to the right in the big room) then head back outside once you've teleported. You'll find yourself right by the Dvucca Isle Staging point, and at a cost of only 100 ISP compared to the 200 you'd spend going back to Whitegate and taking the Runic Portal back out.
ToAU16 - Ghosts of the Past
And....BACK TO NAJA!
ToAU17 - Guests of the Empire
You have to come up with a body armor piece that Naja finds "acceptable". Talk to Naja until she tells you to meet her at Imperial Whitegate. I am kind of fuzzy on this, but Barone worked for the DRG and Errant worked for me. You have to wear this body piece and no weapons when you try to enter the palace.
You recieve an Imperial Mythril Piece (no glory crown yet -.-) and a new title as a reward.
Title Obtained: Ovjang's Errand Runner
ToAU18 - Passing Glory
Go to Naja again and you'll get a hilarious CS when you approach.
ToAU19 - Sweets for the Soul
Approach the tea house again for another CS.
ToAU20 - Teahouse Tumult
Go to G-7 of Wajaom Woodlands and enter Aydeewa Subteranne.
Title Obtained: Karababa's Tour Guide
Head to E-9 of the map you enter on and go down a hole on the west side of the room you are in. When you reach another room look around for a blank spot you can target near a log. Check it for another CS.
ToAU21 - Finders Keepers
Approach Naja again for antoher CS.
Title Obtained: Karababa's Bodyguard
ToAU22 - Shield of Diplomacy
Head to Navukgo Execution Chamber in Mount Zhaylom for a CS as you enter. Then check the gate inside for another CS, and once more to enter a BC. Inside you'll fight Khimera 13, a lion-like behemoth with wings. He is relatively easy to beat especially with "Karababa" (ie Shantoto) helping you. A balanced party of 5 should have no difficulty at level 75.
ToAU23 - Social Graces
Approach Naja for another CS.
ToAU24 - Foiled Ambition
Wait a game day (make sure you zone), then return to Naja for another CS and 5 Imeperial Gold Pieces as a reward.
Title Obtained: Karababa's Secret Agent
ToAU25 - Playing the Part
Talk to Naja again for another CS. (probably have to wait at least a game day) I don't think it matters who you ask about as long as you eventually ask about Aphmau.
ToAU26 - Seal of the Serpent
Check the Imperial Ward Gate with no weapons equipped for another CS.
ToAU27 - Misplace Nobility
Head down to Aydeewa Subterrane via Wajaom Woodlands (G-7) then head to the sharp decline at (E-9). Look around for a blank spot down here and check it for a CS.
ToAU28 - Bastion of Knowledge
Walk into the Walahra Temple in Whitegate for another CS. Choose "To Speak with Someone" to advance. I don't think it matters what you choose in the CS.
Title Obtained: Aphmau's Mercenary
FROM HERE ON OUT I HAVE NOT COMPLETED PERSONALLY THIS IS BASED OFF OTHER'S ACCOUNTS
ToAU29 - Puppet in Peril
Runic Portal out to Mamool Ja Savages, and go to Jade Sepulcher to the north. There, click on the Ornamental Door for a CS.
At this point, there is a fight.
The mob appeared to be a Paladin, buffing himself with Protect IV and Shell III.
It used moves such as Blazing Angon (Def down that had to be erased and was fire damage), Granite Skin (Stoneskin) and various PLD moves such as Flash and Holy. He is rather slow at attacking speed.
Dispelling his buffs and be sure to keep Barfira up. We couldn't dispel his Stoneskin. It also randomly reset hate. As it got closer and closer to being defeated, it would start to hit for more and more damage upon or tank.
Ultimately, myself (WHM), a DRG/SAM, a PLD/NIN, and a RDM/BLM were able to kill it. All of us were 75.
ToAU30 - Prevalence of Pirates
After the jade battle head on down to Arr. Reef as if u were going to the Ashu Talif BC (dvucca staging). There will be a CS on zoning into reef and a CS at the boat.
ToAU31 - Shades of Vengeance
Go pick up some antidotes for this, the mobs in the Assault zone use poison additional effect that does 80 a tick.
Go back to the Periqia staging point, and enter into the Assault Gate. If you lose and need a new pass, talk to the Imperial Immortal that is nearby for another pass.
This Assault is 30 minutes.
Go to H-9 inside the zone, and you will find eight Lamia all together. Pull one at a time (they do link). Just as a note, our RDM was able to sleep them for a decent amount of time with Sleepga using BLM sub and a Dark Staff. We won after we killed K23H1-Lamia (we ended up killing four total).
Get another CS.
ToAU32 - In the Blood
Go back to Naja and talk to her for another CS.
ToAU33 - Sentinels' Honor
End of the new missions already :(
