Dances with Luopans New Worlds Await
For Whom the Bell Tolls
Vessel of summoning
  • 3000 Bayld
  • Maximum level increased to 75 (if applicable)


  • You must have Geomancer set as your main job to get the starting cutscene from Slyvie (as well as you must be GEO to spawn the NM).
  • Speak to Sylvie (I-5) Western Adoulin then travel to (J-8) Morimar Basalt Fields.
    • Using the waypoint to travel to Bivouac #1 is the fastest way.
  • Speak to Dabnorrin (at Bivouac #1) and receive a Vessel of summoning before heading to (K-6) Morimar Basalt Fields.
  • The entrance is at (J-6) which leads to an area not shown on the map.
  • Click on the Primordial Convergence from the South or West to spawn Burgeoning Flames, a NM Fire Elemental. See the discussion page for strategies.
    • This is a solo fight. Others in the party cannot act on the NM except you.
    • You may call Trusts during this fight if you possess the "Rhapsody in Umber" key item.
    • It will not melee and instead spam low level Fire magic (Burn, Fire II, Fire III, Firaga II, etc).
    • You have ten minutes to defeat the NM and will lose access to your support job upon spawning (which will wipe your buffs).
    • The Burgeoning Flames has under 3800 HP.
    • Caution is advised as without buffs its spells can do close to 350 damage and it casts quickly.
    • Once the elemental appears your trusts disappear. Just summon the trusts again before engaging.
  • Click on the Primordial Convergence again for a cutscene and your reward.


  • Does not need to be completed (for level limit increasing) if the player has already completed New Worlds Await or better.
