Prestige of the Papsque Coming of Age


Note: This mission requires a certain level of Rank Bar. Trade 4-5 crystals to the gate guard, or complete repeatable missions up to several times.

  • When you have enough rank points, instead of offering you the list of missions, the gate guard will tell you: "Go to the garden for further instructions."
  • Go to Queen Leaute's Garden (F-7) Chateau d'Oraguille for a cutscene.
  • Return to the gate guard to receive the actual mission.
  • Get ready to fight and head to the battlefield at Horlais Peak, accessible via travelling through Ghelsba Outpost and Yughott Grotto, or Yughott Grotto Home Point #1 (J-6), or Domenic for 750 gil if Beyond Infinity is complete.
  • The battle can be won solo, on certain jobs. (Most - if not all - jobs can easily solo this by subbing Scholar.) (see testimonials)
  • A maximum of 6 characters that are currently on the mission, or have previously completed it (may have switched allegiance even), will be allowed to enter the battlefield.
  • Buffs will wear off upon entering.
  • There is no Experience Points loss upon defeat.
  • On the battlefield, you will find 3 Orcs and 2 Warmachines:
  • Attacking even one of them will aggravate them all regardless of how it is done.
  • All of them are level 68. The Orcs have ~4000 HP, the Warmachines have ~1800, and the Wyvern ~1000.
  • It is not necessary to defeat the Orc Dragoon's Wyvern to finish the Fight and get the cutscene, it can stay slept the whole time.
  • All of them are susceptible to both Sleep and Lullaby, however Darokbok of Clan Reaper is more resistant due to its Resist Sleep trait; they can be slept using Elemental Seal + Sleepga II/Sleepga, or Horde Lullaby.
  • The Orcs will use their respective 1-hrs when they get below 50% health.
  • After successfully defeating the orcs and warmachines, you obtain the KeyItem Crystal dowser and should then report back to a gate guard to finish up the mission.

Reports from Ghelsba indicate that the Orcs in Yughott Grotto are up to something. Investigate, but speak of this to no one.
