Three Paths For Whom the Verse is Sung


Note: If you did not already do so, speak with Cid to begin this mission.

  • Head to (G-6) in La Theine Plateau and click on the ??? there.
    • There are several other quests that begin at this ??? so you may need to watch several cutscenes to make sure you got the right one.


  • Head to the tower at (J-8) in Beaucedine Glacier and enter Pso'Xja.
  • There are a total of 16 stone doors that you must pass through and each one of them has a high chance to spawn a Gargoyle when you check it.
    • Defeat the Gargoyle and move through the door quickly as it won't stay open for very long.
    • Some things to remember:
      • The doors cannot be opened from the other side (i.e. one-way). If someone doesn't make it through the door in time, they will be stuck.
      • There are various other mobs in some of these rooms that are aggresive. Cryptonberries aggro to sight, Magic Millstones aggro magic.
      • These monsters WILL aggro you through the doors so take caution fighting close to the next door.
      • It is possible for a Thief to pick the trap and open the door without spawning a Gargoyle, although it rarely works.
      • Some doors may not spawn anything and simply open.
  • After you have made your way past all 16 doors, sneak up and head down the elevator. Check the Avatar Gate at the bottom for a cutscene.

Pride and Honor

  • Enter Batallia Downs from Upper Jeuno. Next to the wall near the entrance to town, behind Acacia, there is a ???. Check it for a cutscene.
  • When the cutscene is over, check it again to obtain a Key ItemDelkfutt recognition device.
  • Head to (H-5) on the first floor of Lower Delkfutt's Tower and check the Cermet Door to spawn a Disaster Idol.
    • This mob uses normal doll moves, as well as casting Tier 3-ga spells and Tier 4 single target spells based on the current Vana'diel day.
  • After you defeat the Disaster Idol, check the Cermet Door once again for a cutscene.
Lower Delkfutt First Floor

And the Compass Guides

  • Head to the tower at (H-10) in Beaucedine Glacier and enter Pso'Xja for a cutscene.
    • Make sure you have some Silent Oil and Prism Powder, regardless of level. Unless you're high enough and want to fight your way through.
  • There are a few one way walls in here that can be confusing. Walk around the outer perimeter of the map until you are almost back where you started (I-8).
  • Head west through the wall and drop through a hole in the floor.
  • Exit the room to the south, follow the hallway, and enter the room to the north at the end of the hallway.
  • Take the elevator down to the Avatar Gate for a cutscene.
  • Return to Cid once again to finish this path.

If you have completed the other 2 paths (Ulmia's Path, Louverance's Path), Cid will give an additonal cutscene and you can move on to the next Chapter: For Whom the Verse is Sung.
