"The Rhinostery has developed a new "mini" tuning fork of earth. Ringing it upon the protocrystal in Quicksand Caves will open the path to a one-on-one battle with the beast that awaits inside. However, only summoners are allowed to take up this challenge."
Upon speaking with Ferrol (standing next to Juroro, who gives the Trial by Earth quest), he will explain about the Mini Tuning Fork of Earth and give you one. Beware, this item is not a Key Item like the regular Tuning Forks. This is a Rare/Exclusive item that needs to go in your inventory.
When you are a level 20+ Summoner (and ready to go: meaning get your food/juice/meds and gear ready!), return to Ferrol and trade him the Mini Tuning Fork of Earth. (Do not worry: he does not keep the fork.) The following conversation will occur:
Ferrol: Are you and Carbuncle ready to fight the prime avatar as a level 20 summoner? Ferrol: Also, regardless of whether you defeat the avatar or not, you will be unable to re-enter the protocrystal again for a number of days. Ferrol: Ma'am, our adventurer has completed her preparations and requests a warp. Juroro: ... Alacazimzam-scooby-dooby... ... Juroro: Sha-mona!
At this point, Juroro will warp you to the Cloister of Tremors. (Don't worry, there are no mobs to worry about here.) The protocrystal stands in front of you. You must TRADE the Mini Tuning Fork of Earth to the protocrystal. (WARNING: If you do not trade the fork and instead just select the protocrystal, you will enter the regular level 60+ party avatar battle if you have the regular tuning fork!)
When you enter the battlefield, it will give you the rules: Only (Your Name) can enter the battlefield. The time limit for the battle is 15 minutes.
You'll then see the cut-scene of Titan being awakened (the same cutscene that is shown in the regular avatar battles). Afterwards, you must run up the cool-looking staircase thing to where Titan awaits. At the bottom, however, it is safe to do preparations (cast magic, use items, rest).
During this battle, ONLY Carbuncle can be summoned. (So no, you cannot use something like.. say.. Air Spirit.)
The reward is the ability to summon Titan. (The same Titan you get from doing the other quest for the avatar.) You can attempt this as a summoner less than level 20, although it would be pointless. The recommended level (and level cap) is 20. You do not lose exp when you die, unlike the regular avatar battles.
