  • 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.
  • From the battlefield, you will find 2 Warmachines and 3 Orcs:
  • Attacking even one of them will aggravate them all regardless of how it is done.
  • All of them are level 68. The Warmachines have ~1800 HP, the Orcs ~4000 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.
  • The Orcs are susceptible to both Sleep and Lullaby, however Darokbok of Clan Reaper is more resistant due to its Resist Sleep trait. The Warmachines can be slept using ES+ Sleepga II or a well-geared RDM/BLM, BRD, or a WHM/BLM.
  • The Orcs will use their respective 2-hrs when they get below 50% health.
  • After successfully defeating the warmachines and orcs, you obtain the key item 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.
