Walkthrough

  1. Receive the mission from a San d'Orian Gate Guard.

      • There are two possible walkthroughs, depending on if you visit Bastok first or Windurst first.
      • The Bastok-first walkthrough is listed first. Scroll down for the Windurst-first walkthrough.

Bastok

Mission Name Journey to Bastok
Number 2-3
Items Needed Pickaxes
Mine Gravel
Mythril Sand


Suggestion: Buy a stack of Pickaxes from shops, to save you the trip of returning to Bastok to purchase more; pickaxes can break when mining and Mine Gravel (you need one) is a high drop, but not guaranteed, per mine attempt. You can also buy Mine Gravel (AH: Others > Misc), but you have to travel to Palborough either way, so it is not worth it usually.

If you've never been to Bastok, you can Unity warp to South Gustaberg ("Content level 99 and below") and head to

  1. Bastok Markets (H-7) - Enter the Metalworks.
  2. Metalworks (I-9) - Go in and take a lift to the second floor, and go to the Consulate of San d'Oria.
  3. Metalworks (J-8) - Continue east of the Consulate to enter the Department of Industry
    • It is the door to the right of the President's Office.
    • Speak to Pius.
  4. Metalworks (G-9) - Walk back west toward the lifts to reach the Craftsmen's Eatery.
  5. North Gustaberg (K-3) - Go around the left of Zegham Hill to Enter Palborough Mines.
    • If you are low level, you may want to bring Silent Oils to prevent aggro from the level 21-23 Quadav on the 3rd floor.
  6. Palborough Mines (F-7) (1st floor) or (I-9) (3rd floor) - Locate a Mythril Seam and trade a Pickaxe(s) at it.
    • It may take several attempts at the same Seam to obtain Mine Gravel.
    • If you receive the message "You find a chunk of mine gravel, but your pickaxe breaks in the process," you do successfully get the mine gravel. Just check your inventory.
    • Each Mine Gravel consumes one inventory slot.
  7. Palborough Mines (I-8) - Take the elevator to the third floor.
  8. Palborough Mines (I-6) - Trade Mine Gravel to Refiner Lid.
    • Pull the lever on the refiner to activate it.
    • Drop off the ledge to the floor below you.
    • Pull the second lever. Mythril Sand will be put into your inventory automatically.
      • If you forgot to hit the lever after trading the Mine Gravel on the 3rd floor, you gotta make a short (1min) run back around and up from the 2nd floor.
  9. Palborough Mines Floor3 (H-8) - Just around the corner from the elevator, you can take a boat to Zeruhn Mines (H-6) and quickly return to Bastok Mines.
  10. Metalworks (I-9) - Return to Savae E Paleade and trade her the Mythril Sand to complete Bastok leg of the mission.

Windurst (after Bastok)

Mission Name Journey to Windurst
Number 2-3
Items Needed Key Item Dark Key


  1. If this is your first time heading to Windurst, you might go this route:
  2. Windurst Woods (F-10) - Talk to Mourices at the San d'Orian embassy. Then head north to Windurst Walls.
  3. Windurst Walls (H-7) - Enter Heavens Tower.
  4. Heavens Tower (H-6) - Talk to Kupipi (in the clerical chamber straight ahead from entrance) to receive a Key Item Dark Key. Make sure you do not skip this step!
    • Everyone in your party must have this item to enter the BC, or have completed 2-3 previously in their current nation of allegiance. One person cannot get others into the fight who do not have the Key Item Dark Key, even if they are currently on this part of the mission, unless they have completed the mission in their current nation of allegiance.
    • If you are in possession of Key Item "Rhapsody in White", you will also receive Cipher: Semih.
    • If she gives you Trust: Kupipi, you have to zone out and back in to trigger the 2-3 mission cutscene. If you talk to her without zoning, she just talks about Nanaa Mihgo instead.
  5. West Sarutabaruta (F-8) - Enter Giddeus.
  6. Giddeus (G-12) - Enter Balga's Dais.
  7. Balga's Dais - Enter the Burning Circle for a cutscene and to enter the BCNM with Searcher and Black Dragon.
    • If you are solo, make sure you are a minimum of level 30 and on a very strong job, such as a Monk using Hundred Fists. Kill the dragon before killing Searcher, or the dragon will kill you rather easily after Searcher has weakened you. Searcher does not melee you unless you are close to it or it has less than 50% of its HP, so it is relatively inactive if you focus on the dragon first.
    • If in a party with a Black Mage, the recommended order is to kill Searcher, then Black Dragon. The BLM should use Elemental Seal + Sleep on the dragon while everyone kills Searcher. Once Searcher is gone, the Black Dragon will die quickly. This dragon has a very potent AOE poison attack that does 10 damage per tick, which makes antidotes necessary. He also may curse the tanks.(see testimonials)
  8. Once the Black Dragon is defeated, another cutscene will happen. When it finishes, you will receive the Kindred crest.
    • A glitch may prevent this cutscene from occurring. If this happens, you can view the cutscene here (begin at 8:53). Alternatively, you can exit the dais and reenter from the main entrance to watch from the Goblin Footprint.
  9. West Sarutabaruta - Exit the zone into West Saruta. Return to Windurst.
  10. Windurst Woods (F-10) - Report back to Mourices at the embassy to receive a Key Item Kindred Report.
  11. Northern San d'Oria (I-7) - Enter Chateau d'Oraguille and report back to Halver to complete the mission.

Additional Information:

After completing the mission, you should probably go talk to Curilla to obtain her Alter-Ego at this point.
