On the Offensive Achievement Guide for Multiple Shadowlands Mounts
On the Offensive is an achievement related to the Covenant Assaults that take place in The Maw as of Patch 9.1. It is required for a number of mounts detailed in our Patch 9.1 Mounts Guide, but many of its sub-achievements will require a particular Covenant's Assault to be active in order to be obtained.
On the Offensive Overview
This page continues explaining the various achievements that are needed to be completed in order to earn On the Offensive and obtain both the Hand of Salaranga mount as well as purchase some reputation-related mounts.
