Walkthrough

This quest does not appear in the quest log like normal quests do, as it is run though Records of Eminence.

Quests → Objective List → Other → RoE Quests 2 → The Ygnas Directive 1
  • Head to Rala Waterways and talk to Chalvava at (F-11) for a cutscene.
    • The best way there is from the Western Adoulin (Near the Mog House) entrance at (I/J-12).
  • Return to Ploh Trishbahk for a short cutscene which completes the Records of Eminence Objective and opens up the second Objective.



Quests → Objective List → Other → RoE Quests 2 → The Ygnas Directive 2
  • Travel to Western Adoulin (J-11) and check the Mischief Marker to trigger a short cutscene with Tuffle-Buffle and Musto-Rusto.
    • The best way there is from either the Inventor's Coalition or Mog House warps.
  • Speak with Virsaint at (H-8) (near the Platea Triumphus) for a cutscene.
  • Return to Ploh Trishbahk for a cutscene which completes the Records of Eminence Objective.
    • You will receive the title Contributer from the Shadows.



  • After waiting for the next game day after completion of the previous objective, speak with Ploh Trishbahk for a cutscene which opens up the third Objective.
  • Set the The Ygnas Directive 3 Records of Eminence Objective.
Quests → Objective List → Other → RoE Quests 2 → The Ygnas Directive 3
  • Speak with Roskin (near the Statue of the Goddess) for a cutscene, where he will ask for Copse Candy
  • Trade Roskin the Copse Candy for a cutscene.
    • There is a chance for the candy to be stolen, should this happen, obtain another Copse Candy and give it to Roskin for the continuing cutscene.
      • You may be required to buy multiple candies.
  • Return to Ploh Trishbahk for a cutscene which completes the Records of Eminence Objective, rewards you with Delegate's Cuffs icon.png Delegate's Cuffs, and opens up the fourth Objective.



Quests → Objective List → Other → RoE Quests 2 → The Ygnas Directive 4
  • Speak with Levil in the Pioneer's Coalition for a cutscene.
    • Speaking with Yocile, "the young woman at the Cafe des Larmes," prior will direct you to the Mummer's Coalition, however Levil must be spoken to for the quest to continue.
  • Speak with Masad in the Mummer's Coalition for another cutscene.
    • Beat Ygnas at the minigame: Boom or Bust to continue.
      • To win, you must win 3 rounds.
  • Each round is played by either "shooting", "staying", using a trick, or folding.
  • Shooting increases your roll in the same manner that a Corsair's Phantom Roll works.
    • Just like with Corsair's rolls, getting more than 11 total will cause you to "bust", and thus lose the round.
  • Staying closes the round for you.
    • Either play may stay while the other player may continue.
    • When both players stay, the round ends and whoever has the highest number closest to 11 wins.
  • Using a trick does one of three things:
    • You may only use one trick per round.
    • Peeking lets you look at one roll of the opponent.
      • This seems pretty pointless as you can not swap or use crooked after this.
    • Swapping lets you change one of your rolls for one of the opponent's.
      • Useful if you bust to then switch a roll in the hopes of lowering your total or causing the opponent to bust.
      • Alternatively if you have gone several rounds with one high roll and several low then you can exchange your high roll to cause the opponent to bust.
    • Crooked cards forces your opponent to reroll a roll of your choice.
      • Useful for attempting the cause the opponent to bust without messing with your rolls.
  • Folding ends the round in a loss.



  • After waiting for the next game day after completion of the previous objective, speak with Ploh Trishbahk for a cutscene which opens up the fifth Objective.
  • Set the The Ygnas Directive 5 Records of Eminence Objective.

  • You may group with others.
    • Party members must be either on or have completed this portion of The Ygnas Directive.
  • Trusts may be called once inside.
  • All of the Velkk will use their respective 1 hour abilities, and the same TP moves from incursion.
    • Including Jungle Wallop (AoE Damage, Silence, Bind, and Amnesia) from melee Velkk
    • As well as Jungle Hoodoo (Earth damage, Paralze, Plague, and a -50% Curse) from mage velkk.
    • Take care while fighting Durs-Vike Deathspell as his Meteor is rapidly cast and will tear through your trusts.
  • The Velkk all seem to have roughly 50-80k HP depending on the target.
  • You'll fight alongside Ygnas and Nashu.
    • If either are defeated, you will lose.
    • Ygnas will cast Protectra and Shellra V upon entry as well as haste and erase on himself as well as cures.
      • Ygnas will constantly attack one target after the next. Is recommended to assist him (/as <t>) and the target he is after.
    • Nashu will stand at a distance and cast divine magic.
      • He will also cast Banishga II because as you know by now, Nashu is a dunce.
  • All NMs are resistant to light based sleeps, but are susceptible to dark based sleeps.
    • Sleep is highly recommended. Not just for your safety, but for the safety of Ygnas.
      • A tank trust that is able to generate AoE enmity (Amchuchu) or casts cures and later uses some JA (such as August) will have hate on the Velkk when they awake.
    • Take care as Liij-Vok Waaxwane's Benediction will wake all foes.
  • The NPCs are very durable. They have extremely high HP and MP. If you die and reraise mid-battle, they will be able to hold out while you recover.
