Off the Record is a Basic Mission in Xenoblade Chronicles X. It is a final test from Solan to get the Mechanical 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"
    • "After dawn o'er land of white a rare red foe appears to smite. (1)"
    • "Soar deep into the skies and seek the forgotten land's ultimate peak."
    • "Etching of ancient beast to find? Seek a stony shore in fired climes. (6)"
  • "In suburban glory in a setting sun, the afflicted tell of what's to come."


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