The star tree saplings at the farm in the basement of Heavens Tower aren't growing very well. Doctor Shantotto and co. have ordered an investigation to try and solve the problem. Help them by bringing back a glowstone from the crevasse of Xarcabard.
Once your black mage is level 40, go to Windurst Walls and enter Heaven's Tower. Walk down the stairs to the basement of the giant tree and speak with the NPC Chumimi. You will receive a cutscene, after which Shantotto will ask you to toss a Faded Crystal into the gorge in Xarcabard. She asks you to bring back a Glowstone.
First, you must obtain a Faded Crystal. To do this, get one of any type of crystal and head to any of the teleport crags. Trade your crystal to the crag to receive your Faded Crystal.
Next, head to Xarcabard. You can get there either by teleporting (if you have the teleport crystal), or by traveling through Ranguemont Pass and Beaucedine Glacier. Also make sure you have silent oils or prism powders, or that you can cast sneak or invisible.
Once in Xarcabard, head due west until you see lights shooting out from a steep hillside at E-8. There are two "???" here, and the one that's inside the gorge surrounded by the lights is the one you want. You do not want the one that's on a cliff with the torch.
Try to clear out the surrounding demons. Trade the faded crystal to the "???" and a Chaos Elemental will appear. It is a Light Elemental based NM, so most Black Magic spells will inflict extreme damage to it. If you must run away, the elemental will eventually go back into the gorge and you will need another faded crystal to call upon it again.
Once the fight is over the monster will drop a Glowstone. Get the glowstone then go back to Windurst Walls. Enter Heaven's Tower and approach Chumimi again. Trade the glowstone to Chumimi to receive your Casting Wand.
