Mission Orders

The papsque has requested an adventurer of renown. Speak to His Holiness in the cathedral. His chambers lie upstairs.


Proceed to the top level of the Cathedral in Northern San d'Oria and talk to the Papsque. You must go up two flights of stairs to get to it--the door is on the balcony of the cathedral.

Once you have received the cutscene with the Papsque, head to Bostaunieux Oubliette, the dungeon beneath Chateau d'Oraguille.
Take your first right, heading until you reach a dead-end with a NPC and a trap door on the floor.
Cast Sneak or use Silent Oils, then talk to the NPC to pass through the trap door down in to the second level.
You will find two slimes waiting for you.

Once you have dropped down, simply follow the right wall, heading right at every opportunity, until you eventually zone in to West Ronfaure.
You will end up on a rather small ledge--be sure not to fall down.
There is a ??? at the edge. Touch the ??? to spawn Marauder Dvogzog, a NM Orc.
This is a monk-type orc that will use Hundred Fists.
When the orc uses Hundred Fists, it is best to have a Paladin use Invincible.
12 LV 61 players should have no trouble what-so-ever with this battle.
Once the orc is dead, examine the ??? again to receive a key item -- an Ancient San d'Orian Tablet.

Return to the Papsque to receive a cutscene, then head to the gate guard, then finish the mission by receiving a cutscene at the garden in the Chateau.

Did this as 75MNK/WAR for 3 of my friends. Very fun fight for a monk, especially when Orc 2hrs. You will not get hurt more if you use counterstance, Not sure why. I 2hred at the start, when I finished he started. I tossed up Dodge and Counterstance, I kid you not, I must have countered over 50 times. Just a big ol box o spam of counters heh. I only had my NPC to heal me

Killed this guy as a Level 73 BLM/RDM with a level 75 DRK/SAM and a level 72 PLD/WAR. He's not hard, but has a ton of HP. Bind him during hundred fists and just wait for it to wear then go back to wrecking him.

Remember to stay on the ledge while you fight him =P a friend of mine 75RDM/WHM and myself 60BLU/NIN beat the NM marauder guy but i thought i would be smart and drag him down so my buddy didnt have to waste the time to walk through the dungeon to get to him. needless to say i couldnt reach the spot from below and when i walked through again it just spawned the NM all over again. so we had to fight it all over again anyway =P SUUUCKY!

All I can add is this; after the CS with the Papsque the mission is over. You know this by the music and by checking your mission log.
The bit in the walkthrough that tells you to go to the gate guard and then to the garden is wrong. Ignore that last bit. Speak to the Papsque and then you're back to trading crystals for the next mission.

I traded about 4 stacks of crystals and the gate guard told me to go and speak to the princess in the garden at the Chateau. Go and get a CS from the princess and Chalvalot, then go back to the gate guard and you can now choose the next mission, Secret Weapon.

I went in as 75 MNK/NIN. Had trouble keeping shadows up with evasion setup.

Then 1 hundred fist him. Took off about 1/2 his health. He in turn 2 HRed.. so I macroed in counter gear and activated counterstance. Funny thing is there wasn't any damage difference with counterstance on. I started feeding him counters to the face, 37 in total. I was quite funny to see.

Anyways.. killed him with 150 HP left. A little tight but still..

Took 2.5 min total fight.

This NM is pathetic. I wanted to try something different so I geared up my RDM/PLD (yes I have all subs). I run through the sewer get out to ER and buff up typical buffs. Refresh, Pro4, Haste, Enwater, Icespikes, Stoneskin, Phalanx. I heal my mp to full than pop a Taz. Taco. Then slapped the ??? to pop this Maurader Orc. He starts slapping away.
Wal Turban
Misericorde (dagger)
Genbu Shield
Elusive earingx2
Warwolf belt
Amemet +1
Str+ DEX + rings

needless to say Stoneskin lasted till he was around 70% HP. With DoT, Dagger30-50+ Enspell hitting for 18 everyhit fast he would drop 1% every swing. I let stoneskin fall to see the damage was around 3-8hp per hit. Hahaha. Throw stoneskin back up and just kept bioIII and poiII up. He 2hr around 51% slapped on sentinel (which I dont think I needed it) and gave him a shield bash when sentinel ran out. Gave him a couple WaterIII and an Everscrition every 100%tp and he was dead in about 15mins not even. Never converted, never paniced. I believe any job at 75 can solo this ****.

Oh btw if anyone has soloed the MNK mob for MNK AF that one was harder than this. This guy never countered. Paralized easy and had far fewer hitpoints than expected.

I was pretty worried about trying to solo this guy, I had trio'd it in the past for a friend, we went SAM WAR THF with healing NPC's and it was a close fight, this Orc gave us a nasty beating, and we had a few deaths, knowing how fast he attacked I didnt fancy going rdm/nin, so I gave /blu a try.

This really is a relaxed and easy fight as Rdm/Blu. Using Protect IV, Cocoon, Phalanx, Chevoit Cape, Jelly Ring and a Tav.Taco he was hitting me for 0's, occasionally hitting highs for 5 damage. I didnt even bother with Stoneskin I wanted to how well /blu worked. Overall I was impressed I cant wait to put it to use again.
Retired from FFXI ....but for how long this time?

Well this was a lot of fun and pretty easy. Did this with a 70whm/35nin friend and my 75pld/37rdm. He hit pretty often but not for much. Only time it got a little hairy at all was when he two houred. I just hit invincible and let him hit me as I attained Tp and hit him with a Savage Blade as a thank you for the pounding he was trying to give me. Whm Bene'd at the end just to make sure we would make it. It was a lot of fun and anyone plans to do this, have a couple 70+ with ya if you are not already 70+. BTW, when you get in BO, at the end of the tunnel, go through the "Wooden Door," that's where you will find the NPC and the trap door. Good luck to all who is about to do this!

Did this today

1. BST/WHM 72 me!
2. BST/WHM 75 Dacdawg
3. BST/NIN 75 Vife

Used jugs [CC] - Buffed and cooled timers before we set off ???

Fight was going pretty well but Vife got too much hate and when Orc set of his 2hr he didnt even have time to zone! Death. It soon got Dac too - but its 2hr had finished by the time it got to me - So me and one 50%< CC left - When it got to 10% I foolishly Rampaged - not a good plan- I got the hate and it got me down to less than 200hp before CC regained hate. I let it finish it off and I got the key item.

I reckon this could be done duo BST. Pet Food Zeta recomended.

Solo'd 75drg/whm. with Fellowship NPC.

With food and protect his hits are weak, only difficulty is 100 fists which i basically just super jump'd and sacrificed my wyvern and NPC to. Recalled wyvern and just continued to beat him down. Didnt need juice but you might want to bring if you dont have more than about 180 mp.

This dude has alot of HP. Hitting for 180 a swing+ wyvern doing 40+ npc doing 60 and fight took about 10 mins.

Solo'd 75RDM/27BLU! Fight took about 25 minutes. I converted twice, once at about 75% and the 2nd time at 5% along with chainspell just to kill it. Pretty easy fight, just keep phalanx, cocoon, ice spikes, and bio 2 up at all times and stoneskin will last pretty long. Once stoneskin drops he'll hit for about 0-20 a hit. Ice spikes really helped because he got paralyzed so much.

As for hundred fists, when you see him use it put shock spikes up. This will stun him every now and again. If you notice he goes unparalyzed during hundred fists put ice spikes up until he get reparalyzed, then go back to shock.

All in all I have to say it was {fun} and {excitment} for my morning. Good luck to anyone who is doing this mission with or without a party.

A 75 BST friend needed to kill this so we went together, Monk mobs are too weak to RDMs anyway so I asked her not to engage and let me try to solo. Anyway the entire battle I took a total of 4 damage, and that's because I canceled Stoneskin to see how much he did to me. Anyway when he Hundred Fist my friend thought I was gonna die lol, but all that happened was amazing skill ups to my parrying =P, I wish I could regularly pop him to skill up and Hundred Fist last forever.

Duo RDM64/BL32 and THF75/NIN37 easy prey mission

I Trick attacked the RDM the whole fight and he got no hate, and he only needed to convert once. Shadow tanking is tough because he hits like mad, but he whiffs half the time so it's not to bad. I used perfect dodge countered his hundred fists which saved my life. It's not hard at, but it is a long fight.

Three of us took this NM down earlier:

74PLD/37RDM (Me)
75RDM/37SMN (Selkis)
68BLM/34WHM (Tebian)

I tanked him: Protect IV and Tav. Tacos, Stoneskin, Phalanx and Blaze Spikes all used. It took a while for Stoneskin to drop (recasted it twice in a 6 minute fight) and when it did, Shield Blocks and Phalanx ensured it was hitting for 0 damage 80% of the time. Blaze Spikes did 4 damage each time it hit me, which quickly built up.
The mob was Blind, Paralyzed, Slowed and Bio'd and all 3 of us were melee'ing (until after he used Hundred Fists at about 25% HP left - where I used Invincible). After that the BLM and RDM just nuked until he died.

It was a very easy fight to be honest. I wasn't cure'd once - Regen did the job perfectly well. I wore standard tank gear - AF Body, Legs and Feet, Adaman Head and Hands, AGI+ Earrings, VIT Rings. Would be around the same difficulty as a DC mob for me (but with much more HP) so is deffinatly doable by PLD over Lv. 65.

75RDM/WAR. Defender, Phalanx, Tavnazian Taco. This mob will not even dent you. The only way this mob will break your Stoneskin is mass criticals or time runs out on Stoneskin. ;)

Duo'ed as 75rdm/37nin, and 71blm/35rdm. I did just fine tanking no problems except when I didn't notice I was out of shihei and I had to open another toolbag. Fight took 27min, Blm nuked and zoned occassionally, I didn't have any uber gear or anything, I did it without a Joyeuse, I'd like to go back and try again now that I do have one but oh well. I just Bound it while it 2hr'ed (Hundred Fists), Blm might have stunned it not sure. BLM used 3 hi-ethers but she didn't NEED to she just was having fun I guess. I did 2hr at the end to cure myself because I got overzealous and I thought a ThunderIII would finish him, and my shadows dropped and I started to get my **** kicked. I did fraps it but its like 9GB+ I compressed it to 50ish MB but it looks like crap obviously I can send if you e-mail me or something. Good luck this guys isn't all that sweet just another monk XD <<Too Weak>> XD

Just duo'ed this:

74 Mnk/Nin (me)
72 Rdm/Blm (Macbain)

Fight took about 9-10 minutes.

He hits pretty hard. I have capped evasion and some crappy evasion equipment, so he whiffed a couple times on me thankfully. I am still a little sloppy with casting shadows, and my gear isn't exactly ideal for /Nin but it worked out. I was able to get shadows up pretty well nonetheless.

I use Waghs (no Destroyers yet) and spammed Asuran Fists every time it was up. They didn't do much damage on him however. I probably hit him with Asuran Fists 11 or 12 times.

I used Hundred Fists at the same time he did and it was quite a slobberknocker. We were toe-to-toe on that one.

One key to this fight, Mac hit him with Paralyze and Gravity. This gave me some much needed (although relatively brief) downtime mid-fight. I was able to throw some more shadows up. It gave Mac some time to do his Red mage thing (i.e. Convert, Stoneskin, etc.) If the enfeebling magic didn't stick, we probably wouldn't have won.

I had heard stories about this thing back in the day, before I had a subjob. Some fool was shouting his head off in sandy to come help kill this thing. My buddies had said they died to it, but me, being a level 16 rdm, thought I was hot ****.

I exited the S Sandy gate to a lot of corpses and maybe 20 or so people around my level and some lower fighting it til it's AoE went off and they all dropped. Some "high levels" (At the time I considered anything 30+ high lv) came to fight it, and were quickly dispatched, along with myself as I, being the hotship rdm badass I was, thought I could hurt it.

I think I hit it once for 1 damage before AoE killed us all. It eventually went away and raises came out. That was a little over a year ago, haven't heard of it since, except from people in my lses that have said "Some NM is slaughtering ronfaure! Piles of newbs!" Haven't heard anything for a while.

Not one person died. Most fun I've had in a fight in a long time. Hundred fists? lol *whif* *whif* *whif* evasion FTW!

Bloody bolts, a few potions, some WS action, and some serious teamwork made this job/lvl combination possible to defeat him.

I don't recommend fighting him with this combo unless you know what you are doing.

BTW this fight took a total of 4:23

This is like the 8th time I've completed this **** quest. The hardest part really seems to be getting people through the Oubliette. Otherwise, the tank will nearly always say that this "tough" fight is a letdown.

Come prepared. Make sure you've got a good tank and great DD, and you're set.

Just did it again second ago. Party breakdown:


Total overkill. I barely did more than cast hastes/regens. No 2hrs.

According to parser, the orc had 10660hp. The fight took 5:38 minutes. As a 66whm, I ended up getting 9 exp and 19 gil (Woot! I'm rich!).

This was the largest party I've done it with. The smallest one I did it with was a 74thf and a 74pld.

Hope this helps.

Apparently this happens a lot on different servers...a while ago I was jogging back to Sandy from the dunes on my (at the time) 55 War. What do I see when I reach the gates? Bodies. Bodies everywhere. Low levels as far as the eye can see. 'What the F#CK is going on?' I yell...I soon find out. Thf and Rdm are duo'ing it, and a few lower levels are trying to throw in some hits. Some fool 30-something tries to join in the fight, and is quickly crushed flat by one AoE. The AoE it's self doesn't do all that much dmg to me at 55, but it didn't feel good, either. I stand there and watch the fight, and take the occasional AoE, having around 1000 HP, a hundred something AoE isn't a huge whoop.

So, then they kill it. The same *** who spawned it...brings it again. More people dead. A bunch of us take off through the woods to chase it down and take part in the fight. when it gets to sandy gates and is hitting a 40-something who is running for it, I provoke and swipe it a few times. Hits me about 8 times for around 100 per hit, and I zone with about 300 HP left, give or take. I heal, go back out, and watch the chaos continue. A GM is called, and it's despawned. Fun fun.

The mob itself was easy to kill, but be careful when you're in Bostauniaux Oubliette! remember to keep your sneak up because some mobs in there can still aggro you even if you're lvl 75!

Just completed this fight for a LS member.

73 Thf (me)
75 Pld
66 Thf

I evasion tanked it and the Pld healed me if I needed it. No real problems at all and we beat it easily. When the NM used Hundred Fists I just used Perfect Dodge.

Something everyone should know. Make SURE to examine the ??? after you kill the Orc NM outside Bostaunieux Obliette. If you don't, and come back to do it, you just spawn the NM again.

Can someone tell me how much Hp this NM has? Plus if anyone has a parcer run during this fight, the stats would be intersting?

Failed the battle, which was taking days because obviously this isn't the best set up in the world. Could have pulled it off with a RDM or WHM to act as healer so BLM could nuke. All in all, I'd say a full exp setup PT of 65s could probably handle this mob. I don't recommend a NIN tank unless they're 73+ because the NM type is a MNK. I'm not the best NIN in the world, but evasion capped and have two items that raise it 10 above level cap. It was still killing my shadows like there was nothing to it. If you want to make this easy, go as a PT of 70's.

I recall the devastation this guy caused when someone zoned him to the south sandy gates. Hot **** there was pure chaos at the zone. I was on my way to Jeuno and on choco. I nearly choked on the drink that I was having when I saw the corpses all clustered around near the zone.

There must have been at least 15 dead bodies scattered all around this guy. He checked as Impossible to Gauge.

And to top it all off there were even more low level people fighting him. I'm talking about people in the mid 20's and below.

So I decided that this should be interesting. At first I thought it was a garrison NM and things went bad for that alliance.

Then he did his AoE orc dance.....have you ever been killed while on choco? Or witnessed the sight of 13 lines of "xxxxxx was defeated by Marauder Dvogzog"? lol

Well........my first thought was "wtf" Followed shortly by a "something isn't right" followed by yet a third thought "Who the **** is this guy and why haven't I seen him before"

After getting a raise for a Whm in full AF, I was further bewildered at the sight of a Full AF Drk, and a Full AF Drg take this guy on. The thing that bewildered me, was the fact that they were getting their asses severely kicked. Both had to zone in a little over a minute or two. I'm not sure exactly how long before they zoned, but I was still weakened before they bailed.

And after weakness wore off I figured I'd help out with the raising. Dear god.....that guy probably had a kill record that day... lol Sorry to say this folks, but watching about 10 or more people drop from this guys AoE is priceless.

I recall someone in starting gear, with a question mark over his head, calmly walk out, maybe for the first time in his life, level 1 subless warrior.......Boom! Out of nowhere the Orc whipped out his Battle Dance....that poor fella......

Thank god the Drg and Drk who were fighting it earlier called in some reinforcements. 4 rangers teamed are devastating. The AF white mage did the main curing.....I pulled suicidal noob and tossed in some cure 3's whenever I could.

All in all, an interesting experience

We just did this last night and wanted to throw something in. We did it with 4 BST, 2x 66, 1x 65 and a 55. We dragged that thing all through Ronafure and eventually killed it. The BST that needed it had to drop from the ledge, so he ran all the way back to ???.....and respawned the dude. To save his ****, I engaged it with my pet and took off to zone, thinking it would disappear. So I zone, come back out, hit widescan and it is gone. We are discussing what to do now when all of a sudden I see people running from the NM to the zone. He does not disappear, he goes back to the ???. So here are all these level 20ish trying to take this thing, I am trying to claim it to kite it to East Ronafure zone but he is taking people out left and right. I finally get claim on it, kite it with carrie to zone, come back in and "escort" it till it disappears (about 30 minutes).

So in short:
1) watch time to click ???, if you drop from cliff, the person that needs it needs to get to cliff again before fight is over
2) if you zone, zone back to Bostenieux or you will have a littering of bodies all around you.
3) he will eventually disappear if no one claims him

Now we gotta go back and do it again....

I went on vacation last month and when I came back, one of the PLD's (lvl 50-something) in my LS had talked about getting killed by some NM orc in Ronfaure. He eventually came up with that name, Marauder whatever. :) I thought it was some glitch coz around that time other weird things were happening.

This was a bit confusing... after you trade in the tablet to the Papsque, the mission is *technically* complete... however before you can get 7-2 you must trade crystals to the R.K. guy until you have almost full rank, *THEN* the gate guard will tell you to go to the garden where you get a cutscene, *then* you can go *back* to the gate guard and get 7-2. That whole process is done while you are in a limbo with "No Current Mission".

If the gate guard only comes up with a list of missions after turning in the tablet, you need to trade more crystals, he *must* tell you to go to the garden first.

12 people 55-70. Only problem was the PLD didn't listen when I told him he needed to Invinciable when 100 Fists was used by the Orc and 3 people including himself died.

One small note: Once you get the cutscene back at the Cathedral the mission is complete, no need to go to the garden, etc.
