- After the cutscene with Domina Shantotto in Qufim Island, you will be given 6 seals to attach to at least 3 out of the 6 protocrystals. The 6 cloisters where the protocrystals are located are spread throughout Vana'diel.
- Cloister of Flames -- Ifrit's Cauldron (home point crystal #1)
- Cloister of Frost -- Fei'Yin (home point crystal #2)
- Cloister of Gales -- Cape Teriggan (home point crystal #1)
- Cloister of Tremors -- Quicksand Caves (home point crystal #2)
- Cloister of Storms -- The Boyahda Tree (home point crystal #1)
- Cloister of Tides -- Den of Rancor (home point crystal #2)
- Upon examining a protocrystal, an unseen power stymies your efforts to attach the Domina's seal.
- Examine the protocrystal again and you will be offered entrance to a battlefield.
- After each battle you must check the Protocrystal again to complete the mission!
- The prime avatars for this mission are considerably weaker than the normal ones and can be easily defeated solo at around level 75+ by any job. Some considerably earlier than others. You cannot use Trust magic inside.
- See (and add) Testimonials and Strategies on the discussion page.
- Buffs will wear upon entering, including TP and magical Reraise (not enchantment Reraise).
- PUP Automaton will be deactivated upon entry and recast timer will not reset.
- Finishing Moves will not wear off, thus a dancer can obtain 1-5 of them with the use of No Foot Rise.
- Unlike the regular prime avatar fights, victory leaves you at the protocrystal's location.
- The avatars cannot be defeated until they have used, or tried to use, their 2-Hour abilities five times in total (normally triggered at 80%, 60%, 40%, 20%, and 1% HP remaining).
- The last remaining HP cannot be depleted until the 5th use/attempt, no matter what.
- The avatars (other than Ramuh) can be stunned, and stunned attempts still apply towards the count.
- 400 experience points are awarded after each fight.
- Examine the protocrystal again after winning each battle to attach the Domina's <matching element color> seal (e.g., Domina's scarlet seal for Ifrit) and obtain a <matching element color> counterseal (e.g., Scarlet counterseal).
- After receiving at least 3 (and up to 6) counterseals, return to the Trodden Snow in Qufim Island for a cutscene.
- A gil reward based on the number of seals attached is received: (3) 3,000, (4) 10,000, (5) 30,000, or (6) 50,000 gil.
