- Copse Candy can be obtained for 10,000 bayld after unlocking its purchase from Runje Desaali.
- To unlock with Runje Desaali decline the initial offer of selling it to you for 100,000 bayld, she will offer to sell it to you for 10,000 bayld in exchange for a Jungle Nectar, which is sold by Soupox in Leafallia.
- You don't have to decline the offer; even if you accept it, you will still be asked to retrieve the Nectar for a discount.
- Note: Copse Candy obtained through the Login Campaign will be stolen in an amusing cutscene until you get the nectar for Runje.

- Return to Ploh Trishbahk for a cutscene which completes the Records of Eminence Objective, rewards you with Delegate's Cuffs, and opens up the fourth Objective.
- Set the The Ygnas Directive 4 Records of Eminence Objective.
- Quests → Objective List → Other → RoE Quests 2 → The Ygnas Directive 4
- Speak with Levil in the Pioneer's Coalition for a cutscene.
- Speak with Masad in the Mummer's Coalition for another cutscene.
- Beat Ygnas at the minigame: Boom or Bust to continue. To win, you must win 3 rounds. If you lose, speak twice with Masad to try again.
- Purchasing the Key Item Grunt Heard 'Round the World from Runje Desaali for 30,000 Bayld will guarantee victory. This option opens up after you lose a total of 3 matches (or 9 losses). (This KI will make Ygnas shoot until he busts; thus, your victory is assured if you simply stay on your first round.)
- A suggested tactic is to keep shooting till you bust, in the hopes that you get a 5 or 6. This will also give you enough time for Ygnas to get to either 10 or 11, at which point he will stay and preform a trick on you. After he has used his trick, he most likely will stay, at which point you can trick a high card onto him in the hopes of busting him. Since he can no longer trick you back, you either both bust, or he busts and you win. This is a reliable way to win.
- The easiest way is to roll once then stay 9 times then go buy the key item from Runje Desaali because the game has a lot of menus and losses. Select the bottom option to buy it in the menu then return to Masad, roll once then stay 3 times again to win or use the below table if you want to play the game.
- Each round is played by either "shooting", "staying", using a trick, or folding.
- Shooting increases your roll in the same manner that a Corsair's Phantom Roll works.
- Just like with Corsair's rolls, getting more than 11 total will cause you to "bust", and thus lose the round.
- Staying closes the round for you.
- Either play may stay while the other player may continue.
- When both players stay, the round ends and whoever has the highest number closest to 11 wins.
- Using a trick does one of three things:
- You may only use one trick per round.
- Peeking lets you look at one roll of the opponent.
- This seems pretty pointless as you can not swap or use crooked after this.
- Swapping lets you change one of your rolls for one of the opponent's.
- Useful if you bust to then switch a roll in the hopes of lowering your total or causing the opponent to bust.
- Alternatively if you have gone several rounds with one high roll and several low then you can exchange your high roll to cause the opponent to bust.
- Crooked cards forces your opponent to reroll a roll of your choice.
- Useful for attempting the cause the opponent to bust without messing with your rolls.
- Folding ends the round in a loss.
- Return to Ploh Trishbahk for a cutscene which completes the Records of Eminence Objective and rewards you with a Delegate's Garb.
- Wait a game day after completion of the previous objective
- Speak with Ploh Trishbahk for a cutscene which opens up the fifth Objective.

Brash Gramk-Droog Durs-Vike Deathspell
· Ignor-Mnt Stealthslayer
· Liij-Vok Waaxwane
· Tryl-Wuj Wingrip
· Ymmr-Ulvid Gloomlight
- Trusts may be called once inside. You may Party with others if they have completed or are on The Ygnas Directive 6.
- You'll fight alongside Ygnas and Nashu. If either are defeated, you will lose. The NPCs are very durable. They have extremely high HP and MP. If you die and reraise mid-battle, they will be able to hold out while you recover.
- Ygnas will cast Protectra and Shellra V upon entry as well as haste and erase on himself as well as cures.
- Ygnas will constantly attack one target after the next. Is recommended to assist him (/as <t>) and the target he is after.
- Sleep is highly recommended. All NMs are resistant to light based sleeps, but are susceptible to dark based sleeps but Nashu will stand at a distance and cast divine magic including Banishga II which will wake slept mobs. Liij-Vok Waaxwane's Benediction will wake slept foes.
- All of the Velkk will use their respective 1 hour abilities, and the same TP moves from incursion including Jungle Wallop (AoE Damage, Silence, Bind, and Amnesia) from melee Velkk as well as Jungle Hoodoo (Earth damage, Paralze, Plague, and a -50% Curse) from mage velkk..
- Take care while fighting Durs-Vike Deathspell as his Meteor is rapidly cast and will tear through your trusts.
- The Velkk all seem to have roughly 50-80k HP depending on the target.
- A tank trust that is able to generate AoE enmity (Amchuchu) or casts cures and later uses some JA (such as August) will have hate on the Velkk when they awake.
- Return to Ploh Trishbahk for a cutscene which completes the Records of Eminence Objective, rewards you with 30 Pinches of High-Purity Bayld, and grants you the Key Item Ygnas's insignia.
- While in possession of Ygnas's insignia, speaking to Runje Desaali in Eastern Adoulin (J-10) will have her offer to reforge your "Adoulin Scenario-Reward Ring" for a cost of 100 Pinches of High-Purity Bayld.
- If you wish to exchange your HQ Ring with another, you must first pay 300,000 Bayld to Ploh Trishbahk after trading her your current HQ ring. After that, take your new NQ ring to Runje Desaali. You will need to bring along another x100 High-Purity Bayld for your fee.
