Bastok

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


  • {Metalworks} On second floor at Consulate of San d'Oria at (I-9), speak to Savae E Paleade for a cutscene.
  • Enter the Department of Industry adjacent to the President's Office and speak to Pius.
  • Walk to the Craftsmen's Eatery at (G-9) and speak to Grohm for a cutscene and 3 Pickaxes.
    • You are able to buy additional Pickaxes from different shops to help with the mission. Pickaxes can break when mining, so having more can save you the trip of returning to Bastok to purchase more in case you are unlucky.
  • {Port Bastok -> North Gustaberg} Head to (K-3) to enter Palborough Mines.
    • If you are a low level, you may want to bring Silent Oils to prevent aggro from Quadav.
  • {Palborough Mines} locate a Mythril Seam and mine for Mine Gravel by trading the Pickaxes to the point.
    • A Mythril Seam is located at (F-7) on the first floor of the area or (I-9) of third floor.
    • It may take several attempts 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.
  • {Palborough Mines} Once you obtain Mine Gravel:
    • At (I-8) and take the elevator to the third floor.
    • At (I-6) to find a refiner.
    • Trade Mine Gravel to Refiner Lid.
    • Pull the lever on the refiner to activate it.
    • Drop off ledge to floor below you.
    • Pull second lever.
    • Mythril Sand will be automatically put into your inventory.
  • {Metalworks} Trade the Mythril Sand to Savae E Paleade at the Consulate to complete this portion of the mission.
    • You can easily go back to Bastok Mines by taking the boat on H-8 on the map with the burned hole on it.

Windurst

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


  • {Windurst Woods} Go to the San d'Orian embassy and talk to Mourices at (G-10) inside.
  • {Windurst Walls -> Heavens Tower} Talk to Kupipi (in the clerical chamber straight ahead from entrance) to receive a KeyItemDark Key. Make sure you do not skip this step!
    • 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.
    • 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 KeyItemDark 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 KeyItem"Rhapsody in White", you will also receive Cipher: Semih.
  • {West Sarutabaruta -> Giddeus} Head to (G-12) to enter Balga's Dais.
    • Only Invisible is needed in Giddeus. Buffs are removed when you enter the BCNM (if you bring reraise).
  • {Balga's Dais} Enter the Burning Circle for a cutscene and to enter the BCNM (Searcher and Black Dragon).
    • If you are solo, make sure you are an absolute minimum of level 30 and on a very strong job, such as a Monk using Hundred Fists.
    • If solo, kill the deadlier dragon before killing the Searcher. Otherwise, the dragon will kill you rather easily after the Searcher has weakened you.
    • The 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 the Searcher. Once the 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.

    • Seeker
    • Dark Dragon
      • If you are solo, make sure you are an absolute minimum of level 30 and on a very strong job, such as a Monk using Hundred Fists.
      • A solo hero with 4 trusts should have little difficulty clearing this BCNM below level 30.
  • Defeat the two monsters to obtain a KeyItemKindred crest.
    • A glitch can prevent the victory cutscene from occuring. If that happens, you can watch the cutscene here: [2] (begin watching from 1:53), or you can exit the shrine and reenter from the main entrance to watch from the Goblin Footprint.
  • After you've won the BCNM you can exit back into Palborough Mines travel a short distance on that map to H-8 where you can board one of the lever activated ferries and return to Zeruhn Mines which is connected to Bastok Mines.
