  • Talk to Maudaal in E-9 of Aht Urhgan Whitegate to start this quest. You will receive a lengthy cutscene upon doing so.
  • After, you are directed to head to the "secret entrance" to Wajaom Woodlands, G-10/H-10 of Aht Urhgan. Upon zoning, you receive another cutscene.
  • Reach Mamook by entering the cave at D-12 on the Wajaom Woodlands map or by using the Mamook Survival Guide warp.
  • Once you've entered, you will find a "Toad's Footprint? (J-7), click it for another cutscene.
  • You must then travel to a small lake inside Mamook, the hallway in the southern part of G-7/H-7.
    • Cast Invisible and follow the righthand (northern) wall until you reach G-7/H-7, where there are pots of Viscous Liquid.
    • Drop Invisible, cast Sneak (to avoid aggro from fish) and drink the Viscous Liquid to turn yourself into a Mamool Ja (to avoid aggro from Poroggos).
      • Note that you will experience a heavy DoT effect while costumed as a Mamool Ja.
    • Now follow the lefthand (southern) wall a short distance and enter the hallway in the southern part of G-7/H-7 that contain the Toad's Footprints.
  • Check the tracks here once for a cutscene. Check them a second time for a fight.
  • You will spawn a Poroggo Casanova, assisted by Mikiruru‎, Mikiluru‎, Mikirulu‎, Nikilulu, and Mikilulu‎.
    • They are unable to be slept, even with Elemental Seal.
    • The helpers are ordinary frog enemies and have very weak attack power and accuracy, but the Casanova may use all normal Poroggo spells/abilities, including Sleepga, Tier IV and Ancient magic, and "Frog Song".
    • Killing the Casanova will cause all other frogs to disappear and the battle will end.
    • Mikilulu Cannot be killed but can be brought down to 1% HP
  • After winning, check the tracks again for yet another cutscene.
    • You only have to fight it once for it to count for the rest of your party if they are at that stage in the quest.
  • Return to Whitegate and talk to Maudaal again for the final cutscene and your reward.
