There is a rumor that orichalcum ore has been discovered in Leujaoam Sanctum. Find the ore vein before the beastmen do.


The object of this Assault is to mine a Orichalcum Ore. Normal pickaxes will NOT work; you must used the one supplied by the NPC at the starting point. In this zone, you will find Qiqirns walking about. They will not aggro you (for now.) Touch the mining points to attempt to mine the ore you need. Your pickaxe will either, break, a Mineral Worm will spawn, you mine a pebble, you mine the actual ore, or nothing will happen. Mining the ore will complete this assault. The ore has to be brought back to the NPC that hands you the pickaxes. The Qiqirns WILL aggro to sight once you get the ore. If your pick axe breaks, you may return to the NPC to get a new one.

Did this run a few days ago. The ??? Necklace from this Assault was/could be a Jagd Gorget.

Upon entering the Assault Zone, you must attain an Pickaxe from the Start NPC. You must visit each ??? point around the map and pick at them until you find an Orichalcum Ore, then you are required to take the Ore back to the Starting NPC.

At each ??? point, I'd suggest that you keep picking away at the ??? until the spawn point disappears or you receive any type of messages indicating that you find nothing at that point (I forget the exact message it says). Other items may also be found at certain ??? points, that are placed into your Party's treasure pool, such as Pebbles and Tin Ore. But what usually happens is either you find nothing at all or a Worm spawns that you must defeat and then move on to the next ??? point.

A good technique I have discovered for this Assault is forming a Party of 4 people, comprised of 2 Healers and 2 Tanks. Your Party would be split into 2 teams, each team composed of a tank and a mage. My personal favorite job combination would be 2 Duo groups of WAR/NIN & BLM/WHM, due to the War's tanking abilities + relative damage output and the BLM's ability to both Stun Stonega's and keep tank healed. Many Tank/Mage duo combo should work fine though. One Duo group will cover the West side of the map, while the other duo group covers the Eastern portion of the map, until one of the groups stumbles upon the Orichalcum Ore.

Once this happens, members need to be wary of the Qiqirns which now aggro to Sight. Do not worry, they are not true sight. Just put invisible up, and make way towards the Start NPC.

I would not recommend this assault as a choice assault to burn for Leujaoam Sanctum points. We did it strictly for the initial 5 points towards attaining a higher rank. This assault is more about Luck & Chance, than it is about tactics and skill. No matter how many times you check each ??? point on the map, there's still a chance this Ore will not spawn before the time is up. It's quite an unreliable method of gaining Assault Item points.

you can do that but getting your next rank , basiclly talk to naja after getting 25 points ( 1st win an Assault = 5 wins , 2nd win in any Assault = 1 ) and she will:
- talk to you
-give you a quest/CS and request something from you , do what she is asking you to do and you will get your next rank.
