    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.

    EverStoned77Well if you start to unlock Discontinued achievements (ach. that have been possible to get legit but no longer are mostly because of server closures) it really wouldn't be fair to all those who did it the "hard" way, this weren't a hard achievement by any means, but there are true hard achievements that have become Discontinued & by unlocking it you'd also be unlocking it to all that didn't have the skills/patience to get it legit, that really wouldn't be fair & would send the ratio to the basement ... Now if we were talking about unobtainables (achievements that have NEVER been possible to unlock) I couldn't agree more but apparently quite a few here on TA seem to think that's a bad idea though I've never really understood why but it has been discussed in numerous threads here on TA & I think there's quite a few that don't understand the difference between Discontinued & Unobtainable & think that unlocking unobtainables would affect their TA Ratio when in fact you could simply unlock them without any points so you at least would be able to complete all achievements in the game

    Koolay87I think the best course of action would be to delete the achievement so that it is no longer an issue. Anyone who got it before obviously keeps it. And the people that play the game late can still obtain the 100%. It’s then win win for everyone.

    EverStoned77Doubt that will ever happen but there should at least be some minimum of time that an achievement should be kept available, some of EA's games have been delisted in 1-2yrs, personally I was soooo p!ssed when I realized that a DLC in Army of two (one that even was still being sold) was the only thing that stood between me & 100% ... stupid Evil A-holes wave

    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.

    Facial La FleurHopefully it randomly just starts working again like it randomly stopped. cry

    EarthboundXI wonder what they did to stop this from working? The game was never patched, so it must have been something server side?

    I could have gotten this pretty much the first day it was discovered, but I wanted to see how Ubisoft or Microsoft felt about this method first, since it feels pretty exploity as it were. I even asked the Xbox Support Twitter, but they never got back to me. This might be my answer. Hopefully nobody gets in trouble for unlocking it this way.

    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...
