    EDIT: As of mid-February 2020, the following method has seemingly ceased to work as described. It is unknown at this time what has changed to prevent it, but the "Sending Gift..." dialogue no longer pops up as before, it just goes straight to the notification of the servers being offline. I'll leave this solution up for now in case this is somehow only a temporary issue and people want to give it a try again later. If some months down the road it still isn't working, I'll delete it then. Sorry, everyone.


    It's been recently discovered that this achievement is obtainable once again by utilizing a simple workaround to trick the game into believing you've successfully contacted the now closed Ubisoft servers.

    There is no need to remove friends or block followers, as stated by the other solutions. Once you've played a short time, and have acquired some Oculi through looting a few chests, you're ready to begin. Follow the steps below exactly and you shouldn't have any problems unlocking this achievement.

    1. Press the cn_start button and select Oculi from the options.
    2. Choose any of the three equipment slots to see your available Oculi.
    3. Highlight the Oculi you wish to give away and press cn_X to Gift it.
    4. Choose a friend to send the chosen Oculi to and press cn_A to Confirm.
    5. Be ready to pull your network cable from the back of your console and press cn_A to Confirm once again.
    6. Immediately upon seeing the "Sending Gift..." dialogue box, pull the network cable and wait until the process completes.
    7. On the next confirmation box, press cn_A once more to acknowledge your Oculi was sent.
    8. Plug your network cable back in to your console and the achievement will unlock.

    Per jGuiiLe this can be done with a wireless connection as well. In step 6, power off your router when "Sending Gift..." displays and power it back on in step 8.

    If anything seems unclear, please comment and I will try to elaborate. Good luck.

    Note: If you're starting a new game and don't want to hunt down any chests, you can purchase some Oculi from the uPlay app if you have any points to spare. You get 3 for 10 points, so you'll have 3 effortless attempts at this achievement.

    For those of you like me who have over 100+ friends and don't want to delete them.

    I finagled my achievement while I used a second account to transfer over Gems to my main account. At one point my gems were not getting sent to main account so I hard reset my xbox by holding the power button on console until it shuts itself off.

    I tried transferring more gems with secondary account and having my main account signed on as well while doing this the achievement popped for my main account.

    Hope this helps...

    Problem fixed! Child Of Light (Xbox One), has now been relatively patched. Thus, the relative Xbox Achievement can be unlocked without any problem, from now on. Thanks to Ubi Soft!

    How to do: While inside Child Of Light's game world, hit Menu, then select Oculi, press down one time, press A, and there you have to choose an Uculi that you can gift away - to continue with your gifting progress, press X. Then you get to select between Uplay Friends of yours, for a gift receiver. Confirm with A once, and then a second time (A) afterwards you have chosen, the quantity that you intend to gift, of the relative Oculi. Your gift(s) will be sent towards your desired Xbox fellow - another screen notifies you of the concluded gifting transmission - the relative Xbox Achievement will be unlocked for your Xbox LIVE Gamertag after a few more seconds have passed.
