Assault Rank, also known as Mercenary Rank is the Treasures of Aht Urhgan version of Nations Ranking for mission accomplishments. Gaining Ranks in assault offers several benefits including larger selection of items from Gate Guards using Imperial Standing Points and longer Sanction effect. The following section details the different Ranks available and the quests necessary to gain them.
Moving Up In Rank
All players initially enlist as Private Second Class. After participating in assault missions and accumulating at least 25 rank-up points, either Abquhbah or Naja Salaheem will initiate a quest which will allow a player to attain a new rank. Rank-up points can be checked by talking to Abquhbah and clicking the Mercenary Assessments option.
After ranking up, any excess rank-up points beyond 25 are lost, and the player must accumulate another 25 rank-up points to gain another promotion.
