    An easy achievement that can be obtained very early on.

    Wait until you have an oculi you don't really want/need, or one you have a surplus of.
    From the Menu select Oculi, then select a piece of equipment (as though you were going to add an oculi to it).

    Highlight the oculi you wish to send to a friend, it can be anything; even the lowest level ones. Hit X while highlighting your chosen oculi, and a pop up will appear containing a list of your xbox live friends. Simply select a friend to receive the gift and confirm when prompted.

    NOTE: The recipient does NOT need to be playing, or even own child of light. You can literally send it to anyone on your list.

    The achievement will pop immediately after sending the gift.

    UPDATE: previous bug where having 100+ friends seemed to break in the in game functionality to send gifts appears to be fixed.

    I ASK NO ONEScrew EA. I get the sports games losing the servers, but these guys shutting down servers on other games that should be kept up if they are posting online only achievements is absolute BS. I don't buy into their crap anymore. That's why EA will never be #1. Go Rockstar 👌

    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.

    Ginn0rzUgh ffs, I held off on buying this the first time it became unobtainable, you came up with this helpful work-around, I bought it, then the damn thing is unobtainable again.

    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...
