The goal in Assault is to fight through an enemy stronghold with a small, elite unit of mercenaries.
Before being able to join an Assault Mission you need to become a Mercenary for Aht Urhgan. Then you can go to the Commissions Agency in Aht Urhgan Whitegate, where you can view a list of available tasks. Choose any task that interests you, and gather the number of people necessary to finish the operation. Then, enter the enemy's stronghold and complete your tasks.
Assault can only be undertaken by small, select groups. In exchange, the Imperial Army will evacuate any non-participants so that you can fully concentrate on the operation. On the other hand, no one will be around to help if you find yourself in trouble, so you must always be on guard.
To undertake a mission, you must speak with Rytaal in the Commissions Agency in Aht Urhgan Whitegate, who can issue you with an Imperial Army I.D. Tag. One tag is required for each mission attempt. All Assault missions (including Nyzul Isle and Ashu Talif-related missions) require a party of no fewer than 3 and no more than 6 members.
After accepting a mission from one of the Assault Mission Giver NPCs, you must make your way to the Staging Point for the particular assault area. If you have previously used the Runic Portal in that area, you may use the Chamber of Passage to teleport directly to the area without charge.
When you reach the Staging Point, one member of your party needs to get an Assault Armband in order to lead the mission. Talk to the Immortal sentry in the staging area and pay them 50 Imperial Standing for the armband.
The leader then needs to examine the Runic Seal and select the level cap. The options are for a 50, 60, 70 cap, or no level cap. After confirming that you are ready everyone in the party that is in the staging area with correct orders is transported to the mission area.
When you complete the objectives of an Assault mission, a Rune of Release appears at the exit point, along with an Ancient Lockbox. The lockbox contains treasure, while the Rune of Release ends the Assault. Whoever opens the Ancient Lockbox may receive an unidentified item directly into their inventory. Other treasure goes into the Treasure Pool.
When you use the Rune of Release, you receive the Assault Points reward. The point values listed below are for each player in a party of 3. Below are the additional rules for Assault Points calculation:
After a total party wipe, you will automatically be removed after 3 minutes. Bring Reraise items in case there is a chance you can still complete the Assault. However, Reraise effects will not carry over if you are automatically removed from the area.
