You must have Rune Fencer set as your main job to get the starting cutscene from Octavien.

  • Speak to Octavien to receive the key item "Ephemeral Endeavor", then travel to Rala Waterways M-6 (Enter from Eastern Adoulin F-7).
  • The fight is triggered by speaking to Yeggha Dolashi and clicking the door behind her which will send you to Rala Waterways (U).
  • After ascending the stairs Zurko-Bazurko will spawn and attack. He has under 1100 HP.
  • In the center of the arena, Sverdheid ??? waits and appears to be non-aggressive, giving you time to buff/heal.
    • Dealing approximately 3700 points of damage will cause her to surrender; her maximum health is roughly 4000 HP.
      • Should you fail to complete the fight you must wait one game day to receive another "Ephemeral Endeavor" or give Octavien either 50,000 gil; 5,000 bayld; or 10 beastmen's seals.
  • Clearing the fight will award you with "Enlightened Endeavor".
  • Return to Octavien for your reward.
  • Speaking to Octavien again will allow you to receive another "Ephemeral Endeavor" to rechallenge the fight (without Zurko-Bazurko).


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