  • Repeatedly speak with Curilla (Chateau d'Oraguille) until she gives you an Key ItemOld Pocket Watch. You may need to talk to Curilla numerous times.
    • If you have not taken The General's Secret, you will obtain it first. (You do not need to complete the quest to acquire this quest.)
    • Note: After this point, this entire quest can be done as a job other than Red Mage if necessary.
  • Go to the basement of the Cathedral in Northern San d'Oria and speak with the priest, Pagisalis, who asks for Velvet Cloth. Obtain the cloth and trade it to him.
    • Pagisalis can be found on the lower level of the Cathedral in the Reliquary. When you enter the Cathedral, immediately go to your left and on the right, just before the double doors in front of you there is a set of stairs that lead down. Go down these stairs and the first door on your left is the Reliquary.
  • When you pray, a cutscene activates and you receive some Key ItemOld Boots.
  • Return to Curilla for a cutscene and to activate the next part of the quest.
    • Speak to her until she specifically asks you to retrieve the Key ItemCrawler Blood and bury it and the Key ItemOld Boots in the nest.
    • If you forget to talk to her before getting the Key ItemCrawler Blood, you'll waste half an hour going back to San d'Oria to talk to her.
  • Go to Crawlers' Nest and get a Nest Chest Key. Then find a treasure chest (click for maps: CrawlersNestTreasure1.png or CrawlersNestTreasure2.png) and open it with the key, and this will give you the Key ItemCrawler Blood. This can be done on any job once you have flagged the quest.
    • CAUTION: Opening this chest aggroes the monsters around you if you are not a high enough level, even if you have Sneak active (Sneak drops upon opening the chest).

Go bury the boots by clicking on the ??? at (I-10) on the bottom floor of the nest. Note that this is the northern basement (the one with the zone back to a plateau in Rolanberry Fields).

  • Click the ??? once more to obtain Warlock's Boots
    • NOTE: It could take for up to 40 seconds for the purification to take place before you can pick up the boots.
  • Return to Curilla if you wish, as you must return to her to quest for your Chapeau anyway.
