  • NOTE: You are not eligible to skip missions by trading in crystals until you are rank 2 or higher.
  • After accepting the mission, go to the Orastery in Port Windurst (Home Point #1) and talk to Hakkuru-Rinkuru (E-7) for a cutscene.
  • Head to East Sarutabaruta and go to the entrance to the Inner Horutoto Ruins at (J-7). (Can use the Survival Guide if you've touched it before: Sarutabaruta -> Inner Horutoto Ruins. Unity warping to East Sarutabaruta, Level 99 and below category, will also place you right outside the tower.)
    • Optional: Before entering, talk to Sama Gohjima, who is standing before the entrance. She will tell you the minister of the Orastery is in the lab below, and that to get there you should check the walls carefully.
  • Upon entering the Ruins, you will be in the Lily Tower (Map 1). Go down the stairs until you come to the main room.
  • Circle around the room and look for the crack in the center of the south wall at (H-9) (if you see dirt instead of brick floors, you've taken the wrong cracked wall opening).
  • Enter and go left. Click on the Gate: Magical Gizmo at (I-9) to watch another cutscene with the Minister.
  • Next, search the six different Ancient Magical Gizmos (which are spread out in the room before the hallway to the cutscene) until you find the Key ItemCracked Mana Orb. The Cracked Mana Orb is randomly assigned to an Ancient Magical Gizmo for each human party member. Continue inspecting each Gizmo until you find it.
  • Take the Key ItemCracked Mana Orb back to Hakkuru-Rinkuru in the Orastery(E-7) to complete the mission.


  • The NPCs around the Gate Guards will (usually) comment on the mission you're on.
  • The title granted depends on which gate guard you first visit to get this mission. See Titles for an index of which guard awards which title initially. All of these titles can be re-obtained by Burute-Sorute.
  • The Gate Guard cutscenes can't be re-watched at a Melody Minstrel.
    • The short Ancient Magical Gizmos cutscenes can also not be re-watched at a Goblin Footprint.

Background Info

The title seems to be a play on words of "The Harrad Experiment", a 1973 film about free love.
