(Trial) Rune Fencing the Night Away


  • Speak with Octavien at (I-8), accessed via the stairs.
  • Obtain a Yahse wildflower petal from Yahse Hunting Grounds at (K-7) by examining the Yalse Wildflower.
  • Speak with Octavien again and attempt to "Use Rune Enhancement."
    • The amount of attempts required can be from anywhere between 1 and 100, but it does not appear that you can fail.
      • Every 10th failure, he will remark on your progress:
      • 10th fail: "I sense an ominous force interfering with your progress... Could it be the <your current job> within you?!"
      • 20th fail: "Your 20th attempt and we're still no closer than before? Perhaps 'tis I who needs to train more, so I don't accidentally give the talentless dreams they can never accomplish."
      • 30th fail: "I was under the impression that you were an adventurer renowned throughout the Middle Lands. Apparently that appellation amounts to little more than kindling for the fires of one's boasting."
      • 40th fail: "...My condolences, sir/madame."
      • 50th fail: "Why don't you quit while you still have your health? Many people would commit atrocities for a body as hale and hearty as yours."
      • 60th fail: "Let me say this one thing: you may think you're special, but you're just as special as everyone else...that is to say, not at all."
      • 70th fail: "I lost hope for you long ago, but this is already your 70th time. Any further attempts would be a waste of time for us both."
      • 80th fail: "Zzz..."
      • 90th fail: "I've had enough of your incompetence! Let me spell this out loud and clear: y-o-u c-a-n-n-o-t u-s-e r-u-n-e-s!"
  • When you succeed, you will be rewarded with access to the Rune Fencer job and a Sowilo Claymore!
