    Assault

    "Assault" means to make a sudden attack on a fortified area. Your goal in Assault is to fight through an enemy stronghold with a small, elite unit of mercenaries.
    In order to participate, you must first go to the Commissions Agency, 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.
    If you manage to complete the Assault and make it back alive, the Empire of Aht Urhgan will reward you with fame and an appropriate reward.
    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.
    100 gil says this is what the "Lure of the Wildcat" quest is for. Salaheem's Sentinels is a group of mercenaries, perhaps completing this quest gets you access to join their mercenary squad and participate in Assault.

    100gil says you have to be most of the way though ToA storyline, which won't be added to the game until October.

    I hope that at least one or two of the assults are solo. (Or solo with NPC Fellow.)

    Yes, I know it's a multiplayer game, but sometimes it is nice to see what I can accomplish with my own skill- not how many times I can press my Refresh macro.

    i wonder if this is going to be appropriate like ENM, Limbus appropriate or appropriate like Garrison and Expeditionary Force appropriate.

    Edit:

    I love EFs so much ;/. They should add rewards to it, even if it is by SE's twisted standards of "rewards".

    You know, if they added a page of Dragon Chronicles or Miratete's Memoires as a victory reward, that would be all they would need to do and people would do them.

    That almost sounds like instancing to me.

    I want to see a special BC called "Soviet Russia" that involves 18 (relatively) low HP/defense mobs. Upon entering these fights, you will be unable to move until the mobs first attack one of you. There would be one of two fights possible, depending on a karma system they'd have to implement to track how you tend to beat most of your BCNMs.

    One possible fight would be against an alliance of NINs, PLDs, WHMs, BRDs, RDMs, BLMs, and some miscellaneous filler melee. The moment your party enters, they start buffing up then run up to you, the tanks voke your party members (forcing them to target them like in Ballista), the RDMs cast Gravity, and kiters take some of your members for a spin around the arena while the rest zerg your party members one by one.

    The other fight a party might be given depending on their karma value is against 18 BLM mobs. As soon as you enter, they cast stoneskin/blink then run up to the edge of casting range and begin to all cast Thundaga III at once.

    I laughed so hard. Especially at the thought of a bunch of people watching 18 Taru blms stand outside their agro range casting ThundagaIII. /panicing lmfao

    Sounds like a mix of Eco Warrior and WoW, but let's see how it turns out.

    I (mostly) soloed Bloodtear two nights ago (Kiara helped :D ), and I soloed Sewer Syrup last night. It reminded me why I loved to play Red Mage in the first place. (I like being a one-man army.)
