Methods Create Madness
From FFXI Wiki
- Speaking with Balasiel will grant you the key item Weapons Training Guide as well as the Spear of Trials. You will need to break the latent on the Spear of Trials before completing the rest of the quest.
- Breaking the Latent
- You must accumulate 300 points by using the Spear of Trials to do Weapon Skills and skillchains on monsters that are at least Easy Prey.
- You will know when the latent is broken if its bonus stats disappear when you unequip and reequip the Spear of Trials. You can also check to see if the elemental resistances have disappeared from your stats.
- Trade the Spear of Trials back to Balasiel. This will give you the key item Map to the Annals of Truth. You will be instructed to travel to Sea Serpent Grotto.
- Take Silent Oil with you and head to Sea Serpent Grotto. Make sure either you or someone in your party has a Sahagin Key.
- After entering the Grotto, head south into the first large room and take the southwestern tunnel. Continue to the south until you reach the Ornamented Door at (J-10). Unlock the door with the Sahagin Key and head south across the bridge. You will find the ??? to spawn the NM at (H-6).
- This fight is against Water Leaper, a pugil. It is weak to Ice and Lightning attacks. Once you kill it, re-examine the ??? to receive the key item Annals of Truth.
- Go back and speak with Balasiel to receive your reward.
