Description: Rumor has it that the golden figurehead from the Black Coffin, the ship of Luzaf the pirate, can be found somewhere within Ilrusi Atoll.

The objective of this Assault is to recover a figurehead located in one of twelve chests on the map. One contains the figurehead, the other 11 are Mimics.

Search the areas to the southeast, northeast and northwest examining any chests you come across. If it's a Mimic you will need to fight it to move on or it will use 'draw in' on you until either you are the mimic is dead.

Throughout the map are Percipient Fish which are True Sound pugils. They have a small aggro radius but can cost valuable time if you do aggro one. They can be slept and by using deodorize you can lose aggro if you are far away enough.

If you have a Summoner with you have them have Carbuncle out while approaching a chest. If it's a Mimic the Summoner can run away until the Mimic isn't in view anymore and release Carbuncle. The Mimic shouldn't have any hate on the Summoner and you should be free to move onto another chest~

I did several runs the other night with three of us just going /Smn. I even went /Smn after being bored on the 1st run as Drg lol, I could do one chest and I'd have to rest. It wasnt much but I finished a section on my own.

Garuda is your best friend for this hands down, I think any other avatar will die before you manage to run out of range. Something to remember though is not to sic Garuda on the chest, just let her auto attack the box. Someone on a run thought they had to (God knows why) and the box wouldnt leave then alone long enough for them to get away.

I will reiterate what a previous poster said to further add credibility to it. Cursor glitch no longer works, don't try it, found out the HARD way x.x
glitch no more

confirmed that the glitch no longer works after update.

just went in as drg+blm+smn to do it properly.... was reading this as we went in (hadn't planned on glitching as I'm not {I hope} a loser). Tried it before smn opened box, no difference on real or fake.

any job can solo this mission there is a glitch that allows you to determine what is the real chest and what is a fake. Stand back from the chest a far distanca and select it. There will be a message that appears that says something along the lines of "you must be closer to the chest to open it". If after you see this message your cursor is still above the chest then it is a mimic. If the cursor goes away it is the true chest. This really works ive done the mission close to 15 times so far and we have never lost. Anyway good luck with it just letting you all know this so you dont feel you have to be a smn or bst to do it.

I usually go in as Blu/Smn and Metallic Body myself, then use Garuda w/ Aerial Armor. Gives me just enough time once avatar gains agro to get away, works great!

While the mission description is indeed right about SMN being great, please do not forget BST can be good too. BST are limited more than the SMN due to the timer on Call Beast, but other than that BST can do the same thing. Aggro the chest, make your jug attack the mimic, then {Run Away!} As long you run far enough away the mimic will not chase you after killing your jug pet. A very, very lucky BST could also solo this mission; our Call Beast timer makes it more difficult for us, so we wouldn't be able to get to all the chests.
