  • Examine the Rally Point: Green in Xarcabard (S) at (G-9), you will receive the Key ItemMagelight signal flare after a cutscene.
  • Examine the Spell-worked Snow at (G-9) to start a BC fight.
    • Inside the BC talk to Pesoso to start the fight. There will be three waves of weak mobs.
    • A good strategy is to have a tank gather up the mobs and have a Black Mage or two to use -ga spells to eliminate the weak mobs.
    • Upon defeating a wave, the last mob from that wave will flee to a nearby wall and detonate, allowing you to proceed to the next room.
    • In the last room three Arch Demons will pop among the weaker beastmen. The demons will have higher HP, and will not be disposed of easily with AoE spells, a good melee or two can defeat the demons.
    • After defeating all enemies in the third room, talk to Pesoso again to exit.
    • Upon winning the BC, you will zone back to Xarcabard (S) and receive your reward.
      • Note: If your inventory is full or you already have the specific reward, clear inventory and return to the Rally Point: Green
    • Your completion time influences what reward you receive.
