Note: You must zone after completing As Thick as Thieves before starting this quest.


  • Speak to Nanaa Mihgo in Windurst Woods (J-3) to receive the key item Cat Burglar's note.
  • Go to Lower Jeuno (G-10) and speak to Yatniel.
  • Trade 4 Quake Grenades to Yatniel.
  • Go to Mhaura (H-8) and speak to Hagain who is located in one of the upstairs rooms in the Sailor's Stay. He will give you a key item Bomb incense.
  • Head to Garlaige Citadel.
  • Enter Garlaige Citadel from the southeast corner near the first Banishing Gate.
  • Check the ??? at I-9. Examine and choose 'yes.'
    • Head west a bit and look around at H-9 for another ???.
    • Go through the first Banishing Gate and follow the map down to F-9. The ??? to the west of the intersection is the one you want.
    • Go across the hall to the east for another ??? at F/G-9.
    • Go back the way you came, towards the Banishing Gate. Examine the ??? at G-8/9.
    • Head to the north of this area for another ??? at G-7.
    • Head east to the ??? at I-6.
  • The last ??? you'll examine will spawn a Bomb named Chandelier.
  • If it uses Self-Destruct before being claimed then it will not drop the Chandelier Coal.
    • If it self-destructs before it is killed otherwise then there is a very minor chance it will drop.
      • When this mob is spawned, if he is not claimed before he aggros, he will immediately self-destruct.
      • If it spawns and sees a player character before it is claimed, he will immediately self-destruct.
      • If it is spawned while a player is casting magic nearby, he will immediately self-destruct.
  • If you fail to successfully claim him and he self-destructs then you will have to wait 10 minutes for the ??? to respawn.
    • You do not have to go back and check all the ??? again.


  • Go back to Mhaura and trade the Chandelier Coal to Hagain.
  • Head to Windurst Woods and talk to Nanaa Mihgo.
  • Go to Ordelle's Caves. Enter the cave in La Theine Plateau at F-7.
  • Follow the maps around to the hole at H-11/12 (located on the same map you were on when you first entered, just at another section).
    • Drop down this hole and head to the tunnel to the east (I-11), be careful not to fall off the cliff.
  • Follow the stairs to the first intersection (I-6), take a left (south) and keep going. Take the tunnel to the right that heads west (H-9) and take it (you know you're on the right track if you see some Napalms).
  • You'll zone back into La Theine Plateau. Keep going until you find a ??? at the south-west corner of H-10. Trade your Pickaxe to the ??? for a cut scene and your reward.
