Walkthrough

Windurst

  • This mission cannot be skipped.
  • The mission will not be available until after you amass a certain number of Rank Points obtained by trading stacks of crystals of any type to any of the War Warlocks (character with the initials W.W. after their name) located at the city gates.
    • Trading 9 earth (or similar) crystals (not 9 stacks, just 9) will unlock the mission.
    • Trading 65 crystals will cap your rank points for Rank 2.

The Maze

MazeofShakhrami1

Maze of Shakhrami Upper

MazeofShakhrami2

Maze of Shakhrami Lower

  • Once inside, go to G-6 on the upper map and take the right tunnel to get to lower map.
  • There are several aggressive mobs on the way, Goblins which detect by sight and Maze Scorpions and Ghouls which detect by sound. Once in fossil room, the active mobs all detect on sound only. You'll need to cancel your Invisible to examine the Fossil Rock, but you can keep Sneak.
  • Head to H-5 on the lower map
  • There are four Fossil Rocks in this room. There are also two Fossil Rocks in the large room on the same map at I-8.
  • Locations (All second/lower map): G-5, H-4, 2x H-5, F-8, 2x I-8
  • There are 5 Fossil Rocks to examine, one will give you the Lapis Coral.
  • FYI Only: Ichorous Ire is spawned by clicking on the Fossil Rock at (F-8) in Maze of Shakhrami second map. There is no need to kill this NM for this mission.

Lily Tower

Beetle's Burrow

Note: It is recommended that you do Making Headlines in conjunction with this mission.
  • Head to the Lily Tower in East Sarutabaruta at J-7.
  • Go to the southwest corner of the ring-shaped room at G-9 and into the room with the Ancient Magical Gizmo. There is a cracked wall there; go through the cracked wall.
  • Walking through the cracked wall will take you to a new map of Beetle's Burrow at K-9
  • You might want sneak and invisible at this point. The monsters here are in the upper 80s and the Goblins and Skeletons will aggro even at 99.
  • Head to G-8 (this area is not marked on your in-game map; see the Inner Horutoto Ruins map).
    • Go West from K-9 and take the path north and follow the western wall.
    • At I-9, take the West tunnel at the 3-way intersection. Follow the tunnel Northwest - again, follow the western wall to avoid the skeletons.
  • Enter the Mahogany Door at (G-8) inside Beetle's Burrow.
