None The Puppet Master


  • Obtain Carbuncle's Ruby.
  • With the Ruby in your inventory, go to the House of the Hero at (G-3) in Windurst Walls (fastest to take Home Point #1 warp; if you don't have this, then exit Windurst Waters and go East/North). Check the front door for a cutscene, where you will be asked to find "the seven colors".
  • The "seven colors" that are required correspond to the colors of a rainbow. They are obtained by zoning into an outdoor, enemy-populated area while one of six weather effects is active—the seventh is obtained by zoning into an outdoor, enemy-populated area with no weather effect at all.
    • To clarify: "Outdoor" means that you may not zone into a cave or dungeon area to obtain a color.
    • To clarify: "Enemy-Populated" means that you may not zone into a town or city to obtain a color.
    • Cannot obtain weather effects by having Scholar cast them on you.
    • Cannot obtain weather effects from Wings of the Goddess zones.
  • Zoning into an area with the above requirements (that you have not yet obtained) and with the ruby in either your Inventory, Mog Satchel, Mog Sack or Mog Case triggers a short cutscene upon entering the area, where Carbuncle will remark on the color of light that you have found. Note that you will not see the same cutscene again.
    • This can be done by logging out and back into the zone.
    • This can be done while riding a chocobo or mount.
    • This can be done by using an outpost teleport into the zone.
    • This can be done by using the Survival Guide teleport into the zone.
    • This can be done by teleporting into the zone (Teleport-Dem, Nexus Cape, etc).
    • This can be done by traveling into the zone using a Cavernous Maw.
    • You can zone into an area under Monstrosity and still receive the weather cutscene and credit. See Odyssean Passage for a list of applicale areas.
    • Weather Checker NPCs in each town or city can help predict when and where the weather you will be looking for will be in effect. Bear in mind, however, that these Weather Checkers are not completely accurate; some weather effects may occur on days they are not forecasted, and vice-versa.
    • After receiving the cutscene to start the quest, the weathers can be obtained on jobs lower than level 30.
  • Locations of areas meeting the requirements for Carbuncle's "colors of light" are as follows:
Color Element Weather Type Possible Areas
Red Trans Fire Fire Heat Wave Valkurm Dunes, Cape Teriggan, Rolanberry Fields, Eastern Altepa Desert, Western Altepa Desert, Meriphataud Mountains, Yuhtunga Jungle, Yhoator Jungle
Orange (None) Clear Skies West Sarutabaruta, East Sarutabaruta, Buburimu Peninsula, Yuhtunga Jungle, Yhoator Jungle, Eastern Altepa Desert, North Gustaberg, Valkurm Dunes
Yellow Trans Earth Earth Dust Storms Tahrongi Canyon, Sauromugue Champaign, Konschtat Highlands, Valkurm Dunes, Batallia Downs, Eastern Altepa Desert, Western Altepa Desert, Meriphataud Mountains
Green Trans Wind Wind High Winds Tahrongi Canyon, Buburimu Peninsula, La Theine Plateau, Cape Teriggan, Valley of Sorrows
Blue Trans Water Water Rain La Theine Plateau, Jugner Forest, Pashhow Marshlands, Rolanberry Fields, Buburimu Peninsula, Yuhtunga Jungle, Yhoator Jungle, Sanctuary of Zi'Tah
Indigo Trans Ice Ice Snow Beaucedine Glacier, Batallia Downs, Xarcabard
Violet Trans Lightning Lightning Thunderstorms Konschtat Highlands, Sauromugue Champaign, Pashhow Marshlands, Jugner Forest, Sanctuary of Zi'Tah Qufim
  • When all seven colors are obtained, you will receive an additional cutscene where Carbuncle will fly off to La Theine Plateau. Head there and go to the stone circle at (G-6).
  • Trade Carbuncle's Ruby to the ??? at the center of the circle. After a final cutscene, the Summoner job, the avatar Carbuncle, and Job Gesture: Summoner will be available to you.
    • Each time that a player completes this quest, a rainbow (the same one as seen in the cutscene) appears over the Crag of Holla on the next Vana'diel day (so long as the weather is not rain). Should it be rainy weather, the rainbow should appear shortly after the rainy weather stops if it is before 18:00 in-game. The rainbow will appear the same Vana'diel day if you complete the summoner quest early enough in the game day.
