Quicksand Caves 2


  • Trading 58 22 (3 dark crystals as of 11/29/2015) crystals should give you the necessary rank points for this mission. Alternatively, you may repeat the mission Bat Hunt 9 probably 2 times.
  • After accepting this mission go to Chateau d'Oraguille for a short cutscene. Talk to Halver and he tells you to head to Quicksand Caves to get a key item, Drops of Amnio.
  • Now get a party of level 65+. Anyone under level 67 will need sneak.
  • Take the H-10 entrance to Quicksand Caves in Eastern Altepa Desert.
  • Now head west to D-9. At this point, you will make a left turn and head south. Drop down the hole at the end of the room. Once you land, hug the left wall and you will find yourself at the Fountain of Kings.
  • Clear the room and the connecting hallway of sabotenders and antica if anyone is under level 67.
  • Once ready, sneak someone and have them inspect the fountain, which will spawn 2 kraken type NMs, Honor and Valor.
    • The two will spawn inside the pool (underwater), making it very hard to pull one of them with ranged attacks and also causing some people to think only one of the two spawned.
    • To pull them one at a time, go to the right or left wall, cancel Sneak, and get closer carefully so that only one of them will aggro you. They won't link.
    • It takes exactly 3 minutes for the NMs to despawn.
    • It takes about 10 minutes after despawn to be able to pop the NMs again.
      • If you opt to Sneak spawn them, please warn any fishers who may be there fishing Cave Cherax, as Honor and Valor are aggressive to those not even partaking in the mission, and you may inadvertently mpk someone.
  • Valor uses Hundred Fists.
    • If you have a party of magic-users, Valor is much easier to deal with.
  • Honor is level 70, has about 6000 HP, and casts Paralyga and Silencega.
  • Both kraken are susceptible to Gravity and Bind, but immune to all forms of sleep.
  • It is possible to fight only one and let the other one despawn while fighting the first one.
  • Make sure that the one you are not fighting despawns before you kill the one you are fighting.
  • When both are gone, inspect the fountain for a key item, Drops of Amnio (You only need to kill one).
  • Return to San d'Oria and talk to Halver. (At this point, the mission is flagged as complete in your mission log, but you cannot proceed to 8-2.)
  • Wait 1 minute and then enter Northern San d'Oria for a final cutscene.

«FFXI-Movie» 0087 San 8-1 - Coming of Age


Coming of Age - Chateau d'Oraguille
Claidie: Dear Mother... My coming-of-age ceremony is drawing near. My brothers tell me that during the ceremony I will be informed of all the secrets of the d'Oraguille family.

Claidie: I have heard that the same tradition was carried out in Tavnazia. Mother, what secrets were revealed to you? Will I be able to handle the burden as you did?

Claidie: I beg of you, Mother. Watch over me in these trying times.

Coming of Age - Chateau d'Oraguille
Trion: So, my younger sister has finally come of age... I remember when my brother and I would sneak out of the chateau and search the city for presents to buy her.

Trion: We would always be awed by the wonders of the city.

Trion: One year, the king caught us sneaking out. Our mother tried talking to our father, but there was no easing his anger. It was then that I first feared my father.

Trion: Our mother fell ill shortly after, and there was nothing my brother or I could do to save her. Maybe it was our lack of power to save our mother that made us enemies...

Trion: I apologize for my rambling. Perhaps I should journey out into the city and select my sister's gift...

Coming of Age - Chateau d'Oraguille
Pieuje: Claidie has finally come of age... My sister and I don't have many memories of the queen, but every time I see Claidie, I can sense a part of my mother in her.

Pieuje: I don't know... It's probably because they look and act so alike.

Pieuje: Despite being raised without a mother alongside two older brothers, she has matured into a fine, beautiful woman. Now is her time to shine.

Coming of Age - Northern San d'Oria
Shamonde: I hereby conclude the coming-of-age ceremony of Claidie I d'Oraguille.

Rochefogne: So the baby princess has finally become a lady... Did you know that it is custom at the coming-of-age ceremony for the dark d'Oraguille secrets to be revealed?

Rochefogne: I'm sure you have already heard that during the Great War, the d'Oraguille family betrayed my father, Altedour, and dragged Tavnazia into ruin.

Curilla: Silence, infidel!

Claidie: Who are...

Pieuje: Where did this vagrant come from?

Rochefogne: No, I do not expect you to know who I am. This is the first time I have been to this cathedral.

Trion: Wait, you look familiar. But you couldn't be...

Rochefogne: But I am. My name is Rochefogne I Tavnazia. Son of Altedour, and sole surviving heir to the Tavnazian throne.

Claidie: My mother's...brother!?

Trion: Rochefogne!? You were slain in the Great War!

Rochefogne: You doubt your own eyes? Pitiful d'Oraguille. This will be the downfall of you all.

Rochefogne: Know this, d'Oraguilles: I will find Lightbringer. It is the destiny that drives me.

Curilla: After him!

Rahal: Stop, scoundrel!

Pieuje: Wait!

Trion: That Rochfogne is a poison in our fair country. Dispatch the knights and have them comb the countryside--no, all of Vana'diel--for him!

Trion: But how could it be...and what could he want with the holy sword...?
