Some Tips

Catch 6 Rare Fish in the Plains of Eidolon: I expect these will require players to catch the baited fish, including: Sharrac, Karkina, Murkray, Norg, Cuthol, Glappid. Whichever you have the bait for should suffice, but do note when and where that fish may be available. Keep in mind you can do this with friends that have the bait – you don’t HAVE to have the bait yourself!
Complete 3 Exterminate Missions: This one is really easy, but keep the daily acts in mind, as you can double or triple up on basic challenges (such as Kill XX enemies with XX weapon type, and so on). You might be able to also cover any Invasion Acts as well, but only if you’re lucky enough to have an Exterminate mission in Invasions.
Gild 1 Modular Item: Not really something that is easy for beginner players – nor anyone really. Building modular items can take time – before you can gild them, you need to rank them up to 30. And before you can do that, you need to farm the resources. No easy way around this one, unless you already have an item leveled that you can gild…
Complete 3 Spy Missions: Again, an easy one, and again, one that you might be able to double up on with Invasion missions (if you’re lucky). This will work for ANY Spy mission, so keep an eye on the Sortie as well, because that might tick off one of these if you also need to do a Sortie challenge.
Use Forma 3 Times: Not one that can be doubled up with anything else, and also a challenge that requires players to actually HAVE Forma… Probably likely to annoy some people, this one.
Complete 3 Mobile Defense Missions: Again, an easy one, and definitely one that can be doubled up with Invasion challenges (as Mobile Defence missions are often offered as Invasion mission types). Can also be combined with Dailies, depending on what they are, so consider them before jumping in.
Complete 3 Rescue Missions: Super duper easy – you could probably smash this out in 5 minutes. Choose a low-level, simple Rescue – rush to target, rush to exit, done. Not likely one that needs to be combined with any other challenge, but keep it in mind.
Kill Profit-Taker while playing with a friend or clanmate: Oof. Glad this is an Elite challenge, as it’s not one that many players can actually achieve, particularly lower level players. Still, not only will you be taking down the Profit-Taker Orb, but you’ll also be fighting a bunch of Corpus, so best to combine this one with “Kill XXX number of enemies” challenges (don’t make it too complex, as you will need to concentrate on the Orb fight). BUT! Whoever you play with does need to be on your in-game friend list OR in your clan…
Kill 1500 Enemies: Actually relatively easy, for an Elite challenge, as it’s one that can be done passively! Don’t actually focus on this one until you’ve done everything else. Then choose a high-level Exterminate and you should knock this out quickly.
Unlock 10 Relics: Another easy Elite challenge. Keep in mind that you can combine this with challenges that require you to complete a certain number of specific mission types, as you can pick and choose what specific Void Fissure mission you want to do.
