  • Trade Halshaob one Imperial Mythril Piece.
    • You are only allowed to do this quest once every 24 hours.
  • Head to the Cutter, located in the Arrapago Reef.
    • To get there, first travel to Dvucca Isle Staging Point and exit into the Mire.
    • Head East to (G-9) and zone into Arrapago Reef.
    • Head North to (H-8) to find the Cutter.
    • The Survival Guide in Caedarva Mire puts you on the north side of the zone, which is a short run to G-8.
  • The battle has a 30 minute time limit.
  • Make your way to the cabin of the ship. Along the way you will run into 2 Windjammer Imps.
    • They are great for building TP for the NM fight ahead.
  • Inside the cabin you will find 2 NM's: Cutthroat Kabsalah and his pet Bubbly.
  • At the end of the fight, you can get up to three treasure chests. The conditions for these to appear are as follows:
  • 1): Defeat Cutthroat Kabsalah
  • 2): Defeat Cutthroat Kabsalah after defeating Bubbly
  • 3): Attack Cutthroat Kabsalah by surprising him. In order to do this, the following conditions must be met:
    • The Windjammer Imps must be attacked, not aggroed
    • Cutthroat Kabsalah must not hear any of the flute-based abilities of the Imps
    • Cutthroat Kabsalah must be pulled (preferably by spells or ranged attacks) without alarming Bubbly
    • If you successfully surprise the captain, he will say something indicating his surprise.
  • The ideal strategy is to have someone kite Cutthroat Kabsalah while the rest of the party focuses on killing Bubbly.
  • Once Bubbly is down, everyone can take out Cutthroat Kabsalah.
  • After both NM's are defeated, treasure chests will spawn on the boat.
