*At [[Beaucedine Glacier (S)]], visit the 5 northernmost [[Pso'Xja]] towers listed below, and examine the [[Regal Pawprints]] found there. Order does not matter, but in this walkthrough they are listed bottom-to-top.
**The order does not matter, so it is a good idea to plan accordingly depending where you enter from, be it [[Xarcabard (S)]], [[Batallia Downs (S)]] or the Campaign Arbiter warp.
+
**You will play a minigame at each tower. If you fail a particular minigame three times in a row, you will have to zone and attempt that tower again. The other towers will be unaffected.
**It is possible to target the [[Regal Pawprints]] from just inside all of the tower's entrances, except the (F-7) one, which can be targeted from a little deeper inside the tower, and thus avoid being attacked by any monsters nearby.
 
**There are various other [[Regal Pawprints]] in the area that are not involved in this mission.
 
*You must play a different kind of mini-game at each tower, in which your objective is to plant the [[Shadow bug]] on Cait Sith in various ways.
 
**If you fail after all 3 tries, move on to the next tower and simply mark which one you lost. You must change area to retry, and you will only need to redo the games you lost in.
 
**For the games where you need to approach a Cait Sith with their back turned, wait until they turn at a 45-degree angle (still facing away from you). They seem to always go from this position back to facing the doorway, giving you slightly more time to move closer.
 
***Advancing only when they are at a 45-degree angle will guarantee success.
 
   
*[[Cait Sith Coig]] is at (J-8).
+
*[[Cait Sith Coig]]: Level 1 (J-8).
**You must shoot Cait Sith Coig when she remains visible for a long enough time.
+
**She will walk or run between the two turrets randomly. Occasionally, she will pause in the middle.
**Coig only stays still for 1 to 3 seconds, in a pattern of: short - mid - long - short - mid - long (starting still duration is random). Movements appear to be random.
+
**Her movements are random, but the length of her pause is predictable. She will pause for 1 second, then 2 seconds, then 3 seconds, then cycle back to 1 second.
**The best time to shoot is when she's moving left to right, while walking. When she moves right to left, or if she is facing you, she will see you shoot and will run away. Please note that the pattern advances only if she stops. If she runs past without stopping, the pattern remains in the previous state.
+
**The best time to shoot is when she is traveling from left to right, and pauses in the middle after having paused 2 seconds the previous time (therefore causing her to pause for 3 seconds this time).
**It is possible to be attacked by the [[Ruszor]]s and/or the [[Amphiptere]] here.
+
***If you fire while she is traveling from right to left, she will see you and you will miss.
   
*[[Cait Sith Seachd]] is at (I-7).
+
*[[Cait Sith Seachd]]: Level 2 (I-7).
**You must tell [[Lilisette]] when [[Cait Sith Seachd]] turns back so she can move undetected.
+
**You must tell [[Lilisette]] when [[Cait Sith Seachd]] turns her back so she can move undetected.
**The Cait Sith will only catch you if you are actually moving forward when it turns around to face you. You can be one step away from it, and as long as you are not taking a step forward when it turns around, you will not be caught.
+
**The Cait Sith will turn at entirely random intervals. When she turns at a 45-degree angle however, the next turn will always be facing away. This is the very best time to move.
**It is recommended to exercise extreme patience during this game, and only move forward when the Cait Sith is facing at a 45-degree angle away from you in order to avoid failure.
+
***'''Extreme patience is recommended for this minigame.'''
**When [[Lilisette]] puts her hands on her hips at the end of a move, she will descend two steps the next time you tell her to move.

**It is possible to be attacked by the [[Icefang Tiger]]s nearby here.
 
   
*[[Cait Sith Aon]] is at (H-8).
+
*[[Cait Sith Aon]]: Level 3 (H-8).
 
**Like the previous game, but this time it is your turn to sneak to the [[Cait Sith Aon]].

**It is recommended you exercise extreme patience during this game, and only move forward when the Cait Sith is facing at a 45-degree angle away from you in order to avoid failure.
 
   
*[[Cait Sith Ceithir]] is at (G-9).
+
*[[Cait Sith Ceithir]]: Level 4 (G-9).
 
**Like the previous game, however it is [[Portia]]'s turn to sneak up to the [[Cait Sith Ceithir]].

**It is recommended you exercise extreme patience during this game, and only move forward when the Cait Sith is facing at a 45-degree angle away from you in order to avoid failure.
+
**When [[Portia]] starts looking around anxiously, there will be a longer delay between your instruction and her moving.
**[[Cait Sith Ceithir]] will often face forward immediately after turning around. Be patient and wait a moment to be sure he isn't going to turn, then take one step. More than one is risky, especially with [[Portia]]'s potential delay.
 
**When [[Portia]] starts looking around anxiously, there will be a longer delay between you telling her to go and her moving.
 
**It is possible to be attacked by the [[Fulminator]] and the Gigas' here.
 
   
*[[Cait Sith Tri]] is at (F-7).
+
*[[Cait Sith Tri]]: Level 5 (F-7).
**!!Caution!!, this is a time sensitive mini-game. You will have approximately 1 minute to complete this before losing the chocobo chick costume. As soon as you get the options to play the game, the timer is running.
+
**You will transform into a chocobo chick, and need to lure in [[Cait Sith Tri]] within 60 seconds. To catch her attention you can either chirp spiritedly, or expose your back.
**You will turn into a chocobo hatchling and must chirp to get her attention and then chirp or turn your back to get her to move closer.
+
**She seems to respond best to chirping right up until the last few paces, at which point you will need to turn your back.
**There is no real pattern for this, though it seems to work well to chirp when the Cait Sith is looking away from you, and turn away when she is facing you.
+
**You must choose the stun option as soon as it becomes available.
**You can stun as soon as Cait Sith is close enough, which is when the stun option will actually appear. Failing to stun will mean failure of the game.
 
**It is possible to be attacked by the [[Cyhiraeth]]s here, which detect by hearing and low HP. The area before the tower has [[Glacial Imp]]s which detect by true-sight, as well as a moderate amount of the Cyhiraeths.
 
   
*After successfully completing all the 5 games, go to the 6th tower at (H-10) and examine the regal pawprints near the curved down tree little to the north from the tower for a cutscene. Take care at the top of the (H-9)/(I-9) ramp, which is one of the areas the [[Amphiptere]] fly by.
+
*After successfully completing all five games, go to the tower on level 1 (H-10) and examine the Regal Pawprints by the tree for a cutscene.
**A hole at (H-10), south of the ramp, can be used to avoid some of the walking.
 
**After completing this mission, you can play the mini-games again by replaying the cutscenes at the [[Goblin Footprint]] at (H-11).
