Summary

Self-styled leading researcher of mystical artifacts, Zalsuhm, claims that the weapon you acquired deep within Nyzul Isle conceals immense power. Wielding the now unlocked weapon will cause a magical evolution to take place...eventually.

Walkthrough

With your Dancing Dagger equiped, talk to Zalsuhm in Lower Jeuno for a cut scene that starts the quest. The base weapon without any upgrades is the minimum requirement. During the cut scene, he'll ask a series of questions, if he doesn't like your answer, he'll get mad and not start the quest. If this happens, just leave the zone and come back to talk to him. Depending on the Nyzul Isle progress saved on your Runic Disc, you will have to earn a certain amount of weapon skill points using your weapon. See the chart below.

Much like other weapon skill quests, you earn points by performing weapon skills and skill chains. One point is awarded for landing a weapon skill alone, two points for closing a level 1 skillchain, three for closing a level 2 skillchain, and five for closing a level 3 skill chain. You can check your progress by trading the weapon to Zalsuhm. Possible messages include:

  • I sense only a mote of energy present. You still have a long way to go.
  • Aaah, yes... I can feel a marked increase in energy compared to when I first held it. Keep up the good w-w-work, hee hee hee...
  • The energy is threatening to burst forth. It won't be long now.
  • You've done it! Energy is overflowing as though the floodgates have burst open! (This message indicates you have enough points.)

When you have accumulated enough points, Mordant Rime will appear in your weaponskill list while the Dancing Dagger is equiped. Return to Lower Jeuno and trade your Dancing Dagger to Zalsuhm to fully unlock the weaponskill and to complete the quest.
