Mission Orders

On the Star Sibyl's command, you are to head north to the ruins of Fei'Yin, somewhere on the Beaucedine Glacier. There, you are to confirm whether the final seal is doing its job.


Speak to a gate guard to begin this mission. You are needed at Heavens Tower. Head upstairs to the Star Sibyl's Chambers for a cutscene. You will receive the key item: New Fei'Yin Seal. If you cannot receive the seal, make sure your rank points are full and try zoning out of the tower then go back to the chamber again. This quest cannot be completed without the seal!

When ready, head to Fei'Yin either by going through Ranguemont Pass, or by getting a Teleport-Vazhl if everyone in your party has the crystal. It is recommended you have a map or a printed map as Beaucedine Glacier can be a very confusing maze to navigate.

When you zone into Fei'Yin, you will get a cutscene. After the cutscene, head to (K-8), where you will find two dolls and a Cermet Gate on the east wall. Head to the gate to find Qu'bia Arena. Some mobs aggro to magic and many others aggro to sound, so it's recommended every party member bring their own Sneak Oil.

You have 15 minutes to defeat Archlich Taber'quoan and his minions, the Ancient Sorcerers and Ancient Warriors. Everyone must be on this mission or higher or they will not be able to enter the battlefield. Once you defeat the Archlich, the battle will end and you will receive a cutscene and a key item: Burnt Seal.

Return to the Star Sibyl to finish this mission.

Update Notes

As of February 14th, 2011, there is no longer a level cap restriction on the mission battlefield.

Battle Notes

Buffs cast outside the battle will wear off upon entering, so do it inside. The Ancient Warriors keep spawning, so focus on the Archlich. You only need to defeat him to win. The minions are easily slept.

This mission is weak, really weak. I did this with pld/war (me), mnk/nin, and rdm/whm. No deaths did it in under 6 min. Mnk/nin strait tanks the NM, I took the mages. The warriors fell to circle blade every time. The rdm kept me hasted and the mnk hasted and me refreshed. Finished almost full health for all, half mp for me no mp for rdm.

Have fun

I just attempted this fight on the spot yesterday. Heard some members of my linkshell talking about it. Anyways only 3 of us ended up going. We were certain we could beat him. We went as BLM (me), WHM, and RDM. We were doing fine and once we got past 50% of the bosses health the time limit kicked us out. o_O We didn't know their was a 15 min time limit >_<

Anyways we try again and go more offensive and end up using our 2 hours. Got him to around 30% and the time limit kicked us out again. Needless to say we were pretty upset.

We decided to try again once more after the whm got items and etc. We all went into melee and kicked some ****. Got him down to like 2% and he starts casting Stonega II. We were all low on health and mp and those stupid Ancient Warriors had us all panicing. Anyways I had enough mp for {Stun} and thanks to me being in full blown panic, I didn't cast stun in time. I was pretty upset with myself ;_;

WHM and BLM fall and RDM has 27 hp left. Then the RDM dies. The whm reraised hoping to rest w/o aggro and throw a high cure at the lich to finish him, but that didn't work out xD Anyways we're trying again tonight and going to use same tactics. This time we'll have 2 hours and maybe a 4th hand!

New Asura record: 3 min 40 seconds
Old record: 5 min

Went as:
THF/NIN 50 (me)

Used the super tank method.

I went in grabed all hate, engaged the NM and poped 2hr. Everyone else ran in and the two WARs poped their 2hr. Got it down to around %60 before Perfect Dodge wore, then tried to cast shadows a few times but it wasn't happening. The minions have low ACC but there were alot of hits amied at me. Decided to break off and kite them around. Ater around a min of this few lucky hits got through and the WHM couldnt get a cure off fast enough, so i hit the deck. At this point the NM was at roughly %40 so the MNK and SAM 2hr. the whm hat to hit bendication but 10 seconds after that it was over.


I would use this method every time. But ONLY if i had at least one MNK, Hundred Fists will make its HP drop VERY fast so the more the better. Also the super tank method seems to work very well, i'd always pick a THF over a PLD for this as its better to dodge the flury of hits than take them as keeping hate isnt an issue.

Anyway, i hope this helps in someway. if you want any help with this on Asura send a tell to Nightbringer or PM me.

For windurst talk to that mission broad next to the exit to eastern saru. She'll say some junk that implies you need to go see little miss star sybil in the big tree. (Windurst walls). Head on up. Talk to her to get your Seal. Whoever the jerk who wrote this originally is needs to check his info. Its not the same for all nations.

As for the mission itself, went to fei'yin with 5 but one guy didnt re-get seal. Not one to go a long distance just to leave I opted we go in anyway. Went in with 4. PLD, SAM, WAR, me (WHM). Buffed up, charged in, melees focussed on main guy. I supplied heals til I ran out of mp waited til everyone was in the yellow or red, Benediction then ran like a little girl. Blink wears immediately, soon to be followed by stoneskin. I run as far away from the melees as I can then drop like a rock with 50 skel fists to the face. By the time the skels got to the melees they dropped him. I was the only casualty (went in expecting to get toasted so was stoked 3 survived).

Which means: Can be done with 4.

Go in with PLD/WAR tank...WHM/???, RDM/WHM, MNK/NIN, MNK/NIN, MNK/WAR .. and this should NEVER take more than 4 minutes...have the PLD voke/flash the NM first...have the RDM there for main-heal/refresh...whm haste the mnks and back-up heal... mnk/nin X2 BOTH two hour after PLD has flashed... have the MNK/WAR save his...i know what you are thinking...but there is a reason..when the 2 mnk/nin both HF, they will pull hate, hence the shadows...once the NM is under 1/2 dead, have the mnk/war HF, while the PLD uses Cover/Voke/Invincible... dont both attacking the little baby boneheads he summons, they arent worth it... OH, one more thing, and your PLD will love this...finally, a real use for Holy Circle...use it when the 2 mnk/nin two hour...amazingly effective.

Just did this with ninx2, drk, rdm, blm(me), whm.

We wiped the first two times trying the method where one person kites with the others focusing on the main boss.

The third time, the rdm chainspelled -ga spells and I -ga II'ed to kill the first two minions.

The minions that are in the room at the start were a lot stronger than the ones that run up the hallway, it took several spells to kill them.

The ones that run up the hallway later come in pairs and can be killed with a single tier II nuke each. The rdm and I stood guard while the others fought the main boss and it was easy easy.

As a blm, I advise against nuking the main boss, as a 700+ freeze only took away about 5% of its life. Your mp would serve better use against the minions.

My Rank is maxed out...got mission listed...but still Halver refuses to give me the seal. On FFXIclopedia says I need to speak to Naji not Halver (Bastokian here) same thing. Even spoke to the mission giving NPC again just in case and he tells me I can't take two missions at same time. I know I'm below the recommended lvl (a lowly 43) but am working on lvling and want to have this all set up in case I get lucky and some of my old linkshell or current linkshell high lvl buddies will be willing to help me out. Is the lvl 45 required or just recommended? Was told by other players on linkshell that lvl 45 is not required but I'm starting to wonder.

Edit: Halver or Naji doesn't even mention anything related for this mission. When I spoke to him I got that quest to find the Prince a wife instead. (I do admit a good laugh was told to find a red headed taru)

I was having the same problem:

I went to Sandy (home town), talked to the mission guy, who sent me to the Chateau. As I walked in, I got the cut scene with the king. But when I talked to Halver, he just said "Raise you skill and gear" or something similar. Figured out what to do though: You have to exit the chateau and talk to the mission giver again (If you check after the initial cs with the king - you don't have a mission accepted).

So, after the first CS, run out of the Chateau, talk to your guy, accept Ruins of Fei'yin, run back to the castle and talk to Halver. He then gives you the seal and off you go.

Not sure if it's the same for every country - but, if it doesn't work for you in Windy or Bastok - can't hurt to try :D

I have completed magicite and my rank points are full. the mission gaurd tells me to talk to halver. When I talk to halver he doesnt give me the seal. The only thing I can think of is that I have CoP mission Below the Arks incomplete.

I however also dont have a map of fei'Yin and also have the quest Sorcery of the North incomplete.

What else do I need to get this?

Just finished this about an hour ago. Read some of these other posts and decided to bulk up on MNKs to just DESTROY the skele, but I could only get 2. No WHM wanted to come so we got another RDM. None of us had any lvl 50 gear cept the other RDM so we went with crap gear.
Set up was
RDM/BLM (me)
RDM/WHM (Pause)
PLD/war? (Audom)
MNK/WAR (Kaboodle)
MNK/WAR (Veilo?)

PLD went naked, while the rest of us scratched by with bare minimum. His HP was falling really slowly until I AoE'd the group and kitted all the other Skele's. Once they were outa the way, his HP fell VERY quickly. my advice is get as many MNKs as you can ^^ Beat it in 4mins. 12secs.

I have a question. If I'm from Windy and my friend is from Sandy and we're both on 5-1, can we do the BC fight for this together? I realize the early parts of the mission will be different (such as he'll need to go to the Chateau while for me it's the Star Sybil), but since the battle is apparently the same for both will we both be able to enter each other's arena to help with the fight?

Your home nation is Windurst, so you probably get your seal there. Sandorians get it in the Chateau, Bastokans get it at the presidential office, and I guess Windurstians get it at Heaven's Tower. I think the guide should be re-written for the nation it corresponds to as I almost got confused with this one as well.

I have help alot of stranger doing this on Asura. It is easy fight if you know what you are doing. The key to win this fight is get pack of monks.

Here is how you win the battle REALLY FAST:
Need 1 tanker (pld or nin is good).
Need 1 healer (whm or smn or blm or rdm is good).
Fill the members of the party with nothing but monks(tell monks to use 2 hour).

Fight Plan:
Tank and melee attack main mob while 1 mage being healer. Monks use 2 hour at the beginning. When monks 2 hour wear off, use weapon skill. Get 1 monk to save TP for Spinning Attack (AOE). Main mob will pop 2 other bone head when HP is at half or low or when it is a long fight. This is where the Spinning Attack come in. Whoever got aggro by the 2 bone head go near the monk who save TP. Monk use Spinning Attack will totally kill those 2 bone head instantly (this is how I use and it work like a charm). Battle will end fast if you did it right.

I did this like 40+ times and I encounter noob's alot. This is what they did:
I tell them the plan on this BCNM fight, they say they understand but when we go in the BCNM they being a total noob. No monks but me (I am a monk) use 2 hour. Then things goes bad when 2 bone head pop because it is a long fight thanks to these noob monks. Healer and/or mages die. Finally got my TP to 100+ I use Spnning Attack ASAP and kill those 2 bone head. The battle end and we win. When it over I ask why didn't those monks use 2 hour and they say they aren't a tanker so they don't want to use it and ended up being tank (I got nothing to say to these chicken but to add them to my blacklist).

Did this with:
pld, mnk, mnk, mnk, mnk, whm. We win.
pld, mnk, mnk, mnk, whm. We win.
nin, mnk, mnk, whm. We win.
pld, mnk, whm. We win. It is a friends party and no one helping us so we just try it for fun and we make it with no problem.

I plan to do this as duo. Me mnk/nin and a taru friend of mine smn/whm or whm/smn. Personally I think this BCNM is easy win.
oh yea

I've helped many people over the years do this mission. Personally my favorite method is finding one good galka monk with lots of merits to solo the main NM, or 2 average good monks, while i go along as a whm or pld.. they dont need much healing very few times have i had to toss them a cure.. 2 galka mnks with hundred fists - merits - good gear.. fictory is won before 2hr wears off very quick smooth and easily. I've got to do this mission again soon as i started a new character on ramuh.. gonna look up some ole galka buddies once again lol

Alright, my rank points are full and I've already seen the cutscene. I talked to Halver, but he wont give me the seal. I zoned, and he still wont give it to me. Even ran to Ronfaure, logged out, and when I got back to Halver he STILL didn't give me the seal. I'm above level 45, and I even checked my Key Items just to see if I somehow got it. If anyone knows what's going on, please respond as soon as possible. My linkshell is going to be doing missions 5-1 and 5-2 tonight and I'd like to join them. Thanks!!

I'd also like to mention that whenever I speak to Halver, he says the following:

"We shall begin immediate discussion on a policy for action. Zyre, you must work on improving your skills and equipment."

I'm pretty sure he doesn't mean I need to go level some more and get new equipment because I've got pretty decent gear for my job. I'm assuming he's just saying this, and doesn't actually mean for me to go out and get level some more.

Ok, although I didn't look around much, I'd just like to point out that you
    DO NOT need to see Halver
    if you are not from San d'Oria.
The quests seems to say that you absolutly need to speak to him, but as a resident of Windurst.. I only needed to talk with the Star Sybil. She'll give you a key item and you can be off!
Ok.. I had the weirdest party setup.

BLM/WHM<-- Almost no gear
and me DRK/THF (me)

And we won the first time! Although 3-4 members died from bad hate management, we still won. Circle Blade from PLD(to kill minions), healing from RDMs, nuking from BLM and dmg from us DRKs killed him. So, I'd just like to say it's very possible to win with weirdo parties
:-P Good luck to you all![u][/u]

Hey, got a question -

I talked to the bastok guy who gives missions, and he said I was on Darkness Rising. Then I went to Chateau de whatever and talked to the king, but nothing happened. My rank points were not full at the time I "flagged" this quest, so I traded in some crystals. Then I look throught my key items, and I see New Fei-Yin Seal...It has been almost a year since I flagged this mission, so I can't remember what I did. Is the Key Item "New Fei-Yin Seal" what I need? or is it something else?

Well let me tell you...when I first did this mission for myself...it was easy. Now having seen a bit more and being the leader of HonourGuard, I planed a LS event :) to set out and get Rank 6 for some of my members who needed it.

I will...swallow my pride and say we failed a couple times but, Hey! third time was the charm.

Here was our set-up RDM (me) WHM, MNK, MNK, PLD & PLD.

The battle plan was that yours truly ran in there and kitted all the little ones while the others beat down on the big one...the 2 MNKs used their 2hr and so did the WHM and :P it was quite the job kitting those little skelles but I think the PLDs used thier 2hr too ^^

I also used my 2hr to help heal and keep stoneskin up.

I am now proud to say that the third time we succeeded...and!!!! we beat the time record that was 3 mins and 12 seconds.

Our time was: 3 mins 5 seconds :D

/hurray for HonourGuard where we value our members and help them without hesitance :D

I was gettin ready to log after a boring night, untill a tell comes my way asking if i wanted to do Rank 5.1. Well, i was hesitant at first cause the last time i did this, the party friggen sucked. So i ask how many they have, they said 4 that's all we need. I said yea right and brought along my PLD LS member who needed it too.

Plan of attack: PLD run in..**** everyone off, voke, Invincible, and pound the **** out of the Archlich!
Outcome: Smoked in 4 mins (56 secs off record on Ragnarok) Woulda beaten the record if i didn't have to calm everyone down when the BRD was wanting to sleep everything! Which he tried during battle and nearly died..Told ya so!

Hi, just thought I'd give the way my LS (NewDream) and I did it. Well, we went 4 BLMs a RDM and a RNG. Didn't sound like much of a fighting chance huh? Well, we did it actually, and it was really quite nifty if thats the right word. Well, anyways, this is what we did:
1. Everyone nuked and killed the sorcerers first, get them out of the way first if you want a fighting chance at least.
2. BLMs(me included) -aga at the same time and devastate the minions and sorcerers at the same time. It works really well.
3. Once the sorcerers are finished, the RNG focused on the Archmage guy, while RDM healed the RNG and kept refresh up on himself.
4. The BLMs during all this are taking turns nuking the Warriors/minions with -agas and when they aren't are healing to get MP. Its really easy to do this once there are 3 minions up.
5. Have one BLM if u wish help nuke the big boss guy. Nuke until dead, and stick a fork in him, 'cause hes done. Enjoy the CS.

Did this last night with
PLD/WAR (me)

the Sam that would come couldnt enter the battlefield><
So, strategie, the mages take out the minions, the melees take out Archlich Taber'quoan. good stratetgie? not. the mages were running all over the place chased by minions with their hp in red. the DRK begins to do ga-spels. but gets so much hate that even invincible didnt get the hate back. and he died.

Then the PLD used circle blade, and three minions died. another three died of a ga-spell. now we were winning.... but the mages were outta mp. So they rest behind the Paladin, so he gets all the minions, that die insantly with circle blade. and Archlich Taber'quoan was only hitting the PLD fre 9 too 12 damage!
so... after 11 minutes and 22 seconds we won.

now, whats my point? A good paladin can hold of the minions and Archlich Taber'quoan with ease. So, let him stand in the place were the minions spawn, so he gets all the agro and kill them all with circle blade. And the mages can nuke Archlich Taber'quoan with spells

I've gotten the cutscene but when I talk to Halver he just says "keep improving your skills and equipment." I'm a WHM52 with full rank points, and I've rezoned, but with no luck >_> Can someone tell me how to start this mission?

I just had this happen also. Go back to the gate guard that gives you the missions. Choose "Ruins of Fei'yin". That should do it.
