Summary

Investigate reports of a ghost in the cathedral.

Walkthrough

You must be at least level 50 and have completed The Crimson Trial - RDM AF1 to obtain this quest.

Before starting this quest, save time by buying a Velvet cloth from the auction house.

Head to Chateau d'Oraguille and speak to Curilla. She gives you the key item Old Watch and directs you to the cathedral in North San d'Oria.

Enter the cathedral and go down to the basement, and talk to the priest in front of the large piano. He'll ask you to bring him a Velvet cloth. Trade him the cloth to receive a cutscene and receive the key item Old Boots. After the cutscene, go back to Chateau d'Oraguille and speak again with Curilla.

Next, head to Crawler's Nest and farm a Nest Chest Key. Mobs that drop the keys include Blazer Beetles, Exorays, Hornflies, Labyrinth Lizard, Mushussus, Rumble Crawlers, Wespes and Witch Hazels.

Once you get a key, find a regular treasure chest. On the second map, the chest can spawn at I-8, G-9, H-7 and H-8; or on the third map at I-8, H-8, G-7, H-9 and G-9. Trade your key to the chest to receive Crawler Blood.

Note: You must go back to Curilla after obtaining the Blood, to trigger another CS before you go to bury your boots.

Next, use sneak and head to I-10 on the second map. After sneaking past a scorpion, you will find a ??? in the middle of the corridor. Examine the ???.

After the next Japanese midnight, return to the ??? and examine it again to receive your Warlock's Boots.

CS-less

I didn't get a CS when I took the blood back to Curilla.. she talked normally, but did mention taking the blood to bury it.

My diagnosis: If you have to go back to Curilla for a "CS", and she doesn't even give you one, it's a waste of time going back if you don't even need to talk to her. But there is NO CS.
Help!

I talk to Curilla and she gives me the Horlais Peak quest instead of the AF2 quest! I am a lvl 50 RDM and completed the AF1 quest but accidentally threw away the AF1 sword (stupid, I know).

Edit: Oh nevermind, I figured it out! If you just accept the Horlais quest and talk to her again she'll give you the AF2 quest. Hope this helps someone. =)

If you need to know the Chest locations go to "http://www.ffxi-atlas.com/maps/crawlers_nest/treasure/"(I have yet to figure out how to make it a link i'm sorry)and the locations are shown on the maps(FYI the blue squares are the chests for the quest, not the red ones)

no map so i spent most of the evening running about the nest like a headless chicken. The chest didnt show up in the doughnut shaped room so i just wandered about to no avail. Only good thing to come out of this was seeing a GS party get wiped by a crawler link hehe

This info probably won't help most people, but I found it very useful. If you have another job that's higher than RDM, you can open the chest and receive the Crawler's Blood, bury the boots and all that. Just make sure you have the quest completely flagged before you leave for the Crawler's Nest. I finished up in San d'Oria and switched to BLM, which allowed me to look for the chest without having to worry about Sneak/Invis/possible death. At 75, nothing near the treasure chest spawns would aggro, which was nice.

Also, if you're looking for a decent website with chest/coffer spawns, allow me to recommend:

www.ffxi-atlas.com

And no, they didn't pay me to say that. But it's alright if they want to. >_>

I have to say this was the easiest AF getting for me i had my Key from PT'ing down there then came back later at lvl 50 after grabbing the quest. walk into the Big room where tons of pt's r and about 10Ft from the entrance into the big room is the chest i couldn't believe it was that fast. I grabbed the blood ran to the ??? (which was easy as heck to find via online map) threw in the boots and blood went to bed woke up and i had myself my AF boots. This quest took me about 10 minutes or so in total to really do. EASIEST AF EVER!!!! i'd say.

Just moving this very important information to the top. This step has been left out of the guide and has yet to be updated. Thanks to all those that already posted this.


*** After you speak with Pagisalis and give them the velvet cloth, You MUST speak with Curilla again before heading out to get your chest. ***

If you receive the message "Someone has been digging here," when you click the ???, it is because you skipped this step.

/em feels stupid. I've been camping this d**mned ??? for 1 week now...Figured that the walkthrough given by Allah, or whomever posted it up there, was right. v.v Now I'm back on the ship to Sandy. So thanks Kaediis!

Also, to get back on topic, this quest can either be very easy, or quite a headache. As someone already posted down yonder, try to get teh key in a party from 48-50ish. Trust me, it helps alot. Also, remember that the Labrynth Lizzie's aggro to sound. One of the few Lizzie's I've encountered that aggro. So be wary. And stick around a place that has 2-3 spawns. I found that if you actually "camp" a spawn point, it can be alot less of a pain. Well, happy hunting all you Red Mages!

Sneak didn't drop for me when I buried the boots tho' it certainly did once I finally found the damned chest - which I was prepared for. How I failed to aggro the 4-6 Exorays around me, I dunno.. or care. Just waiting for midnight Japan Time - if the crawlers aggro on my RDM57 (yes, I know, I'm slow to get these - RSE blows em away, IMO) I'm not too worried, Stoneskin, etc., will be up and ready for that, if I leave the crawlers alive in the first place.

I really wish I could have found a map of the actual spawn points for the dumb chests tho'... Ran across the coffer during my questing, pissed me off, but found the chest a few minutes later, so I was fine (after four runs into there, all previous ending in aggro when useless-ass sneak or invis wore off and I was unable to get clear of the beetles, etc., and me warping out in a flurry of obscenities)

Question about the retrieval time. I am in EST USA. I buried my boots and the blood yesterday. Midnight japan time will be 10am my time. Now, do I need to return to that burial spot AT 10am, or anytime after?? i won't be home till about 6pm, which is like 8am Japan time. will i be able to get the boots? or do i need to be there right at Midnight japan time?

I'm not absolutely positive, but I think it doesn't matter as long as it's AFTER JP midnight.

If not, I'm in the same boat as you cuz I had to go to bed and it was still several hours before that time. :D

Ok, just found this out from a friend.

Those that get the Message "Someone's been digging here." Havent talked to Curilla after they went to Pagisalis... they dont show it in the guide either which is a dumb typo and made me waste 2 days...

Anyway hope someone sees this before its too late.

Ah my fellow rdm, you suffer from proceeding too far ahead in quests without fulfilling the necassary requirements first. Your buddy is right, you have to talk to Curilla again. There is an rdm AF walkthrough guide that has pretty detailed information in the stickie on the rdm forum.

Event based quests often require "triggers" in order to proceed further, complete, or otherwise be granted your desired item. You will often see these names of requested items in green when talking to NPC's.

Bergholz: I can restore your gloves, but I need you to bring me some Shadow Flames from Castle Zvahl Baileys.

You will see this when you go for your Warlock Glove's. If you try and jump ahead, and go and kill Dark Spark before speaking with Bergholz, you will be unable to recieve the Shadow Flames from the Torch after killing DS. When Bergholz says Shadow Flames, it is at this point that it "triggers" the ability for you to recieve the Shadow Flames after killing DS.

In your case. You cannot recieve the Crawlers Blood until you speak with Curilla again, and Prince Trion tells you how to exorcise the boots. You said you already had the blood though, which is not possible if you haven't talked to Curilla after donating the Velvet Cloth to Pagisalis.

I was able to immediately bury my boots after recieving my crawlers blood from the treasure chest. So if you are still told this with both the Old Boots and Crawlers Blood in you posession, then something is wrong. The only other thing I can think of is make sure you wait one real life day, and not a game day.

Hope this helps you get your boots, and get you past other quests that you may have, or will get stuck on.

Edit: Here is that link I told you about to the RDM AF Walktrough

Thats not true, you can get a chest nest key and open a treasure chest and receive the blood without talking to Curilla a second time. I did this and I got the message "Someone's been digging here." (at the ???). After talking to Curilla again I was able to bury the blood and boots. And now I'll have to wait to dig up my new shiny boots...

I ran around the area the secret room was forever today, and couldn't find a chest...

I then decided to run past the area where the AF ??? is, and drop down where all of the lizards are. I ran around there and almost immediately found a treasure chest. :)

I'm glad I had Phalanx and Stoneskin on... of course a lizard was guarding it and attacked me as soon as I popped the chest - hello chainspell and warp!

Now I'm sitting back and waiting for it to get past midnight in Japan... *sigh* I really hate that you have to wait - I wouldn't have minded trying for my AF3 today too while I had the time. I work during the week, so.. that also means I have to wait til I get home from work tomorrow to even get my my boots! :)

Please verify this for me:
You can bury the boots and blood anytime but you can only retrieve it after midnight Japan time? This one part just does not seem clear. Or do you get the AF gear when you bury the items.

Thanks for your help.

So I finally reach 50, being a total hell getting G1 done, but after I'm finished it, my all time goal was to get a dark staff.^_^.....However, since the last update a lot of stuff have being turn either Rare/ex or Ex alone. This makes Gillsellers SKY rocket the price in Fairy... So the Staff cost 500k+ now(T.T)...Anyways..this is about the boots. Today I decided to go look for the chest, I got help from a 61THF/NIN(IxiDeathixi(-.^)b) in case anything goes wrong(which it did). We started in the huge room near the Secret Room, we spend time looking around for a good 20-25minutes, we tried everywhere even inside the Secret room which I saw it there once. So after we had no luck we tried looking around Crawler's Nest with no map..(hehe).. We spent time looking in every tunnel we could enter... Until we came across the room with the Labarynth Lizzard(in this area no one goes only BST to lvl that i have seeing lol)to only died cause Ixideathixi thought they wouldn't aggro us...(they aggro and like all lizards the Link...... use sneak)I dlvl... Lucky there was a WHM just passing by and decided to give us RII which brought my lvl back..(27/8k lol)So once we where fully healed we started searching every tunnel without taking chances, so we both where inv& Sneak. Some how we manage to come out to Rolandberry Fields...(Some other way I guess)So almost giving all hope from finding the chest, he finds it at some room Filled with Exos..Don't know if it's the "Doughnut room" but i'm pretty sure it's was the Exo Room. lol We took on only one Exo and the others...just went to the other side of the room which gave me plenty of time to get the blood. I have burried the boots and the blood, and waiting on Japans time. Over all the Quest is a pain if you have to look everywhere in Crawler's Nest for a Chest, but right now...I can't complain. haha

I just found the chest in the room with Exorays. But as soon as i kneeled down to open it, i got aggro, and died.

Worths it though, waiting midnight to get my boots ^^

I found the chest within about 5min in the Exoray room, which is on the inside of the donut. Unfortunately when I popped the chest they all aggroed and killed me, but it was a justified sacrifice...

8 hours later....

What sort of nonsense is this?!
I died twice, de-leveled and must have ran in a circle *cough* square *cough* 200 times. Yes, I was in the "doughnut" room...and if anyone would like to show me a picture of a square doughnut and prove they exist please do so.
By the time it was 9:00 PM I was doubting the existence of a lot of things. Things like the treasure chest not really existing, same with square doughnuts (and I am right about that) but most of all I doubted/re-realized I don't have enough of a life because I can spend eight hours of my day looking for a nonexistent treasure chest...which...if it ever existed was probably stolen by UFO's and buried among the ruins of Atlantis. That is how UNREAL that stupid chest is!! I know it probably spawned in other areas but I can't find the monument thing in Garlaige Citadel so no map for me. I have used the map *forget user name sorry ><* provided and thank you for that. That map has been immensely helpful. Still yet, it's touch and feel and sometimes (once) I ended up upstairs and I have no idea if I should be there so I retreated into the land of doom scorpions and rumbler crawlers and exrorays...and did anyone else know that beetles aggro to site? I was told everything in there that aggro'd did so to sound...that resulted in my first warp out. Any who...maybe today someone will have found the treasure chest and allowed it spawn some place reachable for me...WISH ME LUCK!! I am sure to die loads and possibly even lose 51!!!

.::Edit::.
Last night in my exp party I made friends with 2 ppl and one of them changed into a 72 Beastmaster (complete with Courier Carrie ^-^!!) and they helped me find the blood and I buried them and picked up the boots at 8:00 AM (GMT -8:00 whatever time)
Please check my profile!!

the monument for the selbina clay quest isn't actually in galiage citadel, but you have to go through there and come out the other way back into sauromogue champaign in order to get to it.

If you have a moderate lvl thief, you can pick the treasure chest after activating the quest. You do not have to be on RDM main to get the key item from opening the chest.

Um, why would you want the crawlers' blood, or the boots if you weren't RDM? They're rare/ex and only RDM can use them.

No, not right spot.

Easy way to find it:

Enter crawlers nest.

Follow the path all the way to the first drop off.

From the drop, count the second path from the right and go down that path. If you hit Nest beetles your went one to far on the paths, if you hit a dead end, 1 to few on the paths.

Follow that straight until you find the ??? in the middle of the path... This is in a tunnel, not any open rooms.

I'm a 51 RDM on my way to try AF-2...as we speak!!
{Congratulations!} to me right? <_<;;
I wonder if I can solo it...I get help so much from my friends I really wanna do this one on my own and it sounds easy enough as long as I keep sneak up...if I manage to do this I guess I'll report back and say if it's 'soloable'.
*prays*
*glad she has buffer*

Yes - very easy to solo ^^
I did it level 49 - you dont have to kill anything if you already got key, and you only have to find chest, then ??? spot! ;)

If you dont have key yet, then I wouldnt advise it without help from at least one person, but exo's are soloable 51+ RDM, best with nin sub - and keep stoneskin/phalanx up! ;)

The quest order is like this:
(follow the posts from the other nice ppl here for specifics)

1.) Talk to Curilla (gives "Old watch" key item)

2.) Talk to Pagisalis in the basement of the church (receive key item "Old boots")

3.) Talk to Curilla again before you leave

4.) Get the Treasure Chest from Crawler's Nest (receive key item "Crawler Blood")

5.) Go to the ??? and bury your items (click on the ???)

6.) Get your boots after midnight JPN time from the same ??? you buried your stuff at last time in Crawler's Nest.

enjoy ^^

*** If you get "Someone has been digging here" when you attempt to bury the items, go back to Curilla and talk to em again. You missed that step the first time.

OK, I finished this last night! ^^


The only two parts that caused me to waste time were:
a) looking for the guy in the church (>< although looking back over this it does mention the guy is in the basement)
Turn left when you go in the main door and there is a stairway on your right at the end of the corridor!
I never knew this part was there (ah well =P).

b) finding the right ???
As you enter the crawlers nest, and come to the first opening (affectionately known as the "ball" or "sack" room) - so you are standing up high and have to drop down to the bit with the lizards - turn right - it is the 2nd opening. The path is very similar to the one which takes you towards the secret room, and you will have to go in for quite a bit. You will instantly see when you are at the right bit though,as it is the first part with that annoying green light! ><
Invisi will obviously have to be removed to bury the boots and blood - but nothing around here agros to sight anyway.


The chest was surprisingly easy to find...head straight to the big room where you can enter the secret room/rumble crawler bit etc - there are loads of spawn points in here, and you are more than likely to find it here.
First hug the wall around the edge of the room until you come back to where you started and keep hitting tab on your way round (this is autotarget for those who didnt know ;) If you fail to find it here, then go into the middle and go round the middle wall. There are a few points here also. You will come to an opening round the back of this middle bit which also holds a spawn point and is actually the first point I found it, but I wouldnt recommend popping this one unless you're there with a high level alliance, (or are confident with your chainspell/warp =P)as there are 5-7 exorays there, which obviously agro to sight, so as soon as invisi is out you are owned ; ;

The only other thing is if you are wondering when to head back - after midnight (Japan time) which is 4pm GMT.
This is kinda annoying since I finished mine around 7pm ; ;

....Ah well they WILL B MINE! ^o^

Just to clear a few things up after you recive the old watch from the preist go back to cullier for another cut sceen many people are getting to the ???. point like me and finding out that Someone has been digging here. thats becouse you havent talked to the start npc again and havent read the [quote] you receive the key item "Old Boots." Go back to Curilla after this scene and then head to Crawler's Nest.... grrr 9 hours wasted looking for all the ???. died 4 times by knight crawlers in the Wrong place .... in key items you should have crawlers blood & old boots click on the thing from what i call the Sack room's 2nd tunnel on the right facing away from where you come in go all the way down to till u see a cavity [lager bit] with a doom scorp and just passed that in the green smog is the ???.
