  • Speak to Maat on a level 61+ job. He will give you four clues and wishes for you to trade a Kindred's Seal to the people described in the clues. You are not provided with the Kindred's Seals and will need to procure them in order to complete this quest. Check your storage Satchel, Sack, or Case as you may already have enough seals.
