Walkthrough

  • This mission is long, and is broken down in to two legs. Which ever nation you choose first determines how the next plays out. The Bastok->San d'Oria progression is typically easier and faster.
  • Accept the mission. The Gate Guard will send you to Heavens Tower to speak with Kupipi. She is inside the Clerical Chamber. She will give you a Key Item Letter to the consuls.

Bastok to San d'Oria

  • Make your way to Bastok. Head for the Metalworks from Bastok Markets. At the top, enter the Windurstian Consulate and speak to Patt-Pott at (I-7).
  • Head to the President's Office at (J-8), also on the top. Speak to Pius in the Department of Industry.
  • You will be instructed to speak to Grohm at (H-9) in the Craftsmen's Eatery. He will give you 3 Pickaxes. Consider buying more, as they can break, although 3 should be sufficient.
  • Make your way to Palborough Mines in North Gustaberg, at the very north of the zone. You will need to mine Mine Gravel from the Mythril Seams located throughout the zone. There is one on the first floor at (I-8), and one on the top floor at (I-9). Trade the Pickaxe to the Seam until you receive some Mine Gravel. You CAN purchase Mine Gravel from the Auction House, check it in Bastok before you leave.
  • Once you receive the Mine Gravel, head to the second floor, and make your way to (I-6). You should find a refiner. Trade the gravel to the refiner and then pull the level off to the side.
  • Drop off the ledge to the level below and pull another lever. You will receive Mythril Sand.
  • Head back to Patt-Pott in Metalworks and trade him the sand. Talk to him once more. This is the end of the Bastok leg.


  • Make your way to San d'Oria. Head for the Windurstian Consulate in Northern San d'Oria. Speak to Kasaroro in (H-9).
  • Head for Chateau d'Oraguille, and speak to Halver.
  • Form a party of level 25 or higher, but make sure everyone has gear for a level 25 fight. A BLM or RDM is ideal for this fight, as you'll want sleep.
  • Make your way to Ghelsba Outpost from West Ronfaure, it is in the northwestern corner. Inside, follow the left wall until you zone in to Yughott Grotto. Follow it all the way to the end, around (K-5). You should exit to Fort Ghelsba.
  • Outside, head straight and stick to the left wall. You should start going up hill. Follow it around. At the top, there will be a large hut to your right. Enter it and go to the back, there is a hidden entrance here. It returns to Yughott Grotto. Head for (J-6) to enter Horlais Peak.
  • Prepare and enter. Buffs will wear on zone, so buff up inside. Make your way to the top to face off against two NMs, an Ahriman called Seeker and a Dragon called Dread Dragon.
  • Sleep the Dragon and then defeat the Seeker, who is weak. Attack the dragon and take it down. This fight is really easy with a full party.
  • It can easily be defeated with a MNK/WAR and WHM/BLM. Can be soloed by some jobs with a lot of meds, and duoed by almost any melee job with a WHM healer.
  • Once cleared, head back to Kasaroro in Northern San d'Oria.
  • Your journey is almost complete, head back to Heavens Tower in Windurst Walls and speak to Kupipi to complete the mission and receive your rewards.

San d'Oria to Bastok


  • Make your way to Bastok. Enter the Metalworks from Bastok Markets. Make your way to the top and speak with Patt-Pott inside the Windurstian Consulate, around (I-7).
  • Speak to Pius in the President's Office. He will send you to the Craftsmen's Eatery to speak to Grohm.
  • Form a party of level 25 or higher, but make sure everyone has gear for a level 25 fight. A BLM or RDM is ideal for this fight, as you'll want sleep.
  • Make your way to Palborough Mines, in the very far north of North Gustaberg. Inside, make your way to (I-8) and head upstairs. Here, make your way to (H-10) and zone in to Waughroon Shrine.
  • Prepare and enter. Buffs will wear on zone, so buff up inside. Make your way to the top to face off against two NMs, an Ahriman called Seeker and a Dragon called Dark Dragon.
  • Sleep the Dragon and then defeat the Seeker, who is weak. Attack the dragon and take it down. This fight is really easy with a full party.
  • It can easily be defeated with a MNK/WAR and WHM/BLM. Can be soloed by some jobs with a lot of meds, and duoed by almost any melee job with a WHM healer.
  • Once cleared, return to Patt-Pott in Metalworks.
  • Your journey is almost complete, head back to Heavens Tower in Windurst Walls and speak to Kupipi to complete the mission and receive your rewards.


Note: This mission is essentially identical for all 3 nations. While each nation requires you to travel to the other two, they all follow the same path. San d'Orians and Windurstians who choose Bastok first will do the same things. Therefore, it IS possible to group people together from different nations to ultimately end up on the same BCNM fight. A Windurstian may choose to do the Bastok portion first, and San d'Orian portion second, while a Bastokan can do the Windurstian portion first, and the San d'Orian portion second. In this scenario, Windurstians and Bastokans can enter the same BCNM for the San d'Orian portion.
Note 2: Players who have already completed this mission (for any nation) may enter any of the BC, except for the one associated with their nation (A Windurstian who has completed 2-3 is unable to enter the Giddeus BCNM to help others, unless they have completed this battle through another nation's 2-3 mission).
Note 3: As of the May 2015 version update, Halver now gives out Cipher: Halver to any qualified Trust participants as a part of his dialog when doing Bastok to San d'Oria. You MUST be able to accept the trust cipher (not already have one in your inventory) when speaking to him in order to be able to enter the battlefield at Horlais Peak.
