This mission has an alternate objective depending on your mission completion state. If you are repeating this mission or have completed The Final Seal after skipping this mission, Zubaba will instead ask for 3 Rusty Daggers as proof of her request to "clean up some vermin" beyond the Three Mage Gate.
On the command of Zubaba, the head lady-in-waiting, you are to journey beneath the central magic tower of the Horutoto Ruins. There, you are to report to the facility managed by Heavens Tower, which protects the talisman that seals Castle Zvahl. Render whatever assistance is necessary.
