This is the first Blue Mage Artifact Armor quest - otherwise known as AF1.

  Start NPC:   Waoud - Aht Urhgan Whitegate (J-10);
  Cutscene NPC Raubahn
  Blue Mage Level 40+
  Items Needed:   
  Title:   Branded by the Five Serpents
  Repeatable:   Yes, by erasing AF memory
  Reward:   Immortal's Scimitar
  Previous Quest:   An Empty Vessel
  Next Quest:   Omens


NOTE: You must have completed mission Immortal Sentries to get the cutscene and approach all NPCs as a blue mage. In addition if you are viewing the extra cutscene you get after completing the job quest for the first time, you have to wait till the next game day before being able to receive this quest.

  • Speak with Waoud and choose "Gaze away" to have him tell your fortune.
  • After three in-game days, speak to Waoud again and choose "Gaze away" as before. During the cutscene that follows, choose "I have" and you will be told to visit the five original Staging Points. You must zone before speaking to Waoud for this cutscene; otherwise he'll just repeat the original Q&A used to unlock the blue mage job.
  • Note: Be sure not to talk to him in between the three in-game days or else you will have to go through the question-and-answer cutscene you did to first unlock blue mage, and then pay him 1,000 gil.
  • Note: If you start down the question-and-answer path accidentally, you can disconnect/crash your client without fear of breaking the quest progression.
  • Note: Did this quest on 9/13/08 and did not have to wait three game days after the initial cutscene to get the brands or the sword.
  • Note: You can just zone into Mog House and go back for the second CS you dont need to wait 3days.
  • Check your "Quest" menu to make sure you get the quest.
  • Visit each staging point and speak with the Immortal Sentry at each. They will each give you a key item "Brand." If at any time you want to know what brands you've already acquired, you can go to Permanent Key Items and check them off.
  • You must have Blue Mage as your main job to get the cutscene from each Immortal.
  • After receiving all five brands, return to Waoud for a final cutscene and your reward.
