Off the Record is a Basic Mission in Xenoblade Chronicles X. It is a final test from Solan to get the Biological Field-Skill level 5. Part of the test is to correctly interpret the objectives, which are in the form of riddles. For this reason, the locations of the targets are not shown by the minimap, the segment map, nor the Follow Ball.


  • "Achieve all objectives"
    • "Atop the forest's eternal cascade, a bitter baron awaits the blade. (10)"
    • "Take this elevated corn to hand, atop the peaks of a delusional land. (8)"
    • "Above an early land do hover, courting birds whose seal you covet. (10)"
  • "Where ordnance takes first breath, collect your spoils after sunset."


"You learned the final level of the biological skill from Solan."
