You are to investigate the Zilart ruins of Ro'Maeve. Chief Engineer Cid has more details.


Before venturing out to Ro'Maeve, make sure to have a talk with Cid.

In Ro'Maeve, clear the area around (L-7), Target the ??? to spawn two NM Golems called Mokkurkalfi.

After defeating the golems, you will need to find the ??? again for another cutscene. The ??? might be where it was before, but chances are it has moved to a new location. The ??? can spawn at:

  • D-10
  • E-9
  • E-10
  • E-11
  • G-9
  • I-8/J-8
  • K-10
  • K-11
  • L-10
  • L-7
When you check the ???, you will get a key item Reinforced Cermet. If you leave the zone before finding the ??? again, then you must fight the NMs a second time (logging out or accepting a tractor counts as zoning).

Return to Cid for a cutscene to complete this mission.

I just soloed this mission as MNK75/WAR37 and i started off w/ Chi blast on 1 NM and just started pounding away at him but i didnt kill him until the second NM depoped. as soon as it depoped i just Asuran Fist'ed him and the luckly enough the other ??? was just literally around the cornor.

You was born to win, Expect the win, and you will achieve that win.

I go as 75 galka rdm/nin for my solo:

1. Found the ??? (check guide).
2. Scout area around and find or create a good safe spot for fight (I have to killed a couple weapons as the ??? I found is not a mob free area).
3. Sneak up and pop. No aggro.
4. Pull one (no link) to safe spot. It's attack speed is super slow.
5. The ??? had moved by the time I finished the golem so I had to find again.

I guess the things to look out for is avoid aggro (sound+magic) here.

The initial spawn spots are random - It won't necessarily be at L-7.

Having just hit 74, I figured I'd try something for fun, and to test out /NIN. Headed out, found the ??? spot pretty quickly... Spawned enemies while under Sneak.
Very easy fight... Poor accuracy. I figured I'd just get a little extra EXP and kill the second one. It took (much...) longer to find the ??? again.

I solo'd this mission last night as BLU75/NIN37. ??? I found at G-9. I sneak pulled and pulled off to where nothing was. Was a fairly simple fight Blu style. Other one depopped and I killed it fast enough that the ??? didn't move.

I soloed this mission a few days ago as a 75 MNK/NIN. I got lucky and found the ??? in a place with a nice weapon free area nearby to pull to so I didn't have to do any clearing. After summoning my lvl 47 healer npc and using Dodge, I popped the NMs with sneak up and pulled one away. I didn't have my 2 hr since i had used it while soloing mission 6-2 but the fight was easy anyways. I never dropped into yellow hp and my npc never casted a cure on me. The other NM had depopped right before i finished but the ??? had moved so i had to seek it out again. All in all it's a pretty easy mission.

Ok full explanation of the Mission:

Get it from Cid, he will ask you to go get a piece of Reinforced Cermet from Ro'Maeve. Go there, and find your ???. It spawned in a spot that wasn't listed on the posts above for me so I think its a random spawn anywhere in the lower tiers of Ro'Maeve. Clear your area, and pop a silent oil/sneak. Click the ??? and 2 NM's will spawn of the same name. Get a little way away from them and pull one with Chi Blast/Ninjutsu etc (just not magic). With any luck it will come to you without the other one aggroing your newly dropped sneak. Pull it to the zone and get whoever has hate to zone if they have the train that I had lawl! Kill this joke of an NM and then go search for the ??? again. It moved so I had to pop a sneak and go tab happy on Ro'Maeve. Once you find the ??? again, click it and you will receive your key item.

Well we found the point and killed the one weapon close by, the others were far away so we didn't bother killing them, we pop'ed it and 5sec later, on moved from far away to come aggro to my Dia, I let Paladin on the golem and move to kill the aggro, first thing I know, another one join in, by the time I killed the first, I got 2 more on me, We finally killed it after 4 weapons and 1 doll aggro, needless to say this fight is easy, most likely any job can solo or duo with a good subjob.

Just make sure to clear that place well first, those suckers aggro from far, and move a long way to get into that range, they can walk quite a distance.


Goodluck :P

just solod this on RDM/NIN. im not sure if the info up top is just wrong or what, but the ??? didnt change positions for me. Although i accidentaly got both, and some magic aggro when trying to pull, so i zoned. Came back in, one was standing there attacking some helpless RNG so i killed it and like i said, the ??? didnt move. zoning didnt affect getting the item either.

??? spawn pts. (D-9)(D-10)(E-10)(E-11)(I-8)(K-9)(L-10)(G-9)
basically the second tier of ro'maeve
my spawn was at (D-10).

i cleared the doll and weapon that were in the corner first.
applied sneak, checked ???
2 NM golems(Mokkurkalfi) spawned.
ran out of sound aggro range, cast dia2 and ran to the cleared out camp.

very easy NM for anybody with ichi/ni to solo. it misses alot, add enfeebs and its a pushover.
uses ICE BREAK, goes through shadows
uses CRYSTAL WEAPON, binds target, goes through shadows
both these atks weren't anything to worry about. use barblizzard to deal with ice break; it never got through my stoneskin.

it has low life, it misses alot even w/o blind applied. gave me 45xp@lv75.
take a stack of sneak oil, and look for the ???; its the hardest part =P

i give up

i solo'd this as thf74/nin37 and it was pretty easy. just sneak pop the ??? and pull one and the other will depop after about 5 mins. the lowest i got was 750/1100 because he uses some abilities that ignore shadows, and others that just eat them. the ??? was at D-10 and i didnt have to clear i just fought him on the ledges and kept close to the wall and didnt aggro anything. after i killed, the ??? was in the same spot so i got my key item right away. good luck with this and if your on Fenrir give Thayer a /tell i will kill it for you. ^^

After reading Baude's post we figured we may as well invite our SMN friend, Kenjin, to come help us with this fight. He carby pulled to the entrance and tore it apart with Garuda. I'm pretty sure me as BRD/NIN and my wife's WHM could've easily duo'd this. He hits very very hard but if you blink away the damage it's no big deal. He doesn't have a lot of HP. It only took 3 Preadator Claws to take him down and by the 3rd one he was at 7% life so it was more than overkill.

I am level 74 SMN. I sneak up and get carby out find the ??? at E-9. The two Golems popped, i sicked carby on the one to my left and run for the entrance to RoMoeave. Once there, i waited for carby to die. When he did, i summoned Ramuh and did 4 level 70 Blood pacts and attacked the Golem with my Lightning staff and killed it EASILY.

Then, once i killed it, there is no message or reward or anything so i sneak and start looking for the ??? to get my cement chunk. And wouldnt you know, i found them when i ran down the stairs and it appeared on the ledge just behind where the golem pop was. When you are traveling in Ro Maeve, have silent oil because casting sneak is NOT AN OPTION if you solo this as i did. Total time, about 20 minutes for fight and finding of the second ???.

Good luck and if your on Ifrit server, send me a tell or email and I will help you.

Big thing I'd really avoid with this is draggng massive parties through this zone. I just soloed this as a 66nin/33war (morbus on ifrit if you need help). Generally I exp my npc in boyahda tree on robber crabs if there aren't pts there and with kurayami, hojo, and jubaku up this thing felt a little weaker than a robber crab. So the impression I got out of this fight is if you can't solo it, bring in a well balanced exp pt of around 58-60, make sure you are capable of getting slow, blind, and paralyze on the mob, send out a scout or 2 find the ??? have a nin or a thf train all the weapons in the area to the zone, and make sure your mages are out of aggro range from the dolls. Sneak the puller have him tap the ??? back off to just within striking distance for ranged weapons (I used kurayami: NI), and hit one mob, fight that, the other will likely depop while you do so (it did me), once it's dead send the party back to the zone (not through the zone, have them wait just inside) and send your scout(s) back out for the key item ???. once they find it, call out pos and have your party come collect their reward.

Note, for the scouts I'd recommend bringing a lot of silent oil (I used 16 doing this by myself), how many you need depends on a well organized search pattern and a little luck.

Moral of the story is do this mission with the fewest amount of people you can pull it off with, you don't want to transition alot of people around in here, and you certainly don't want a pickup party/alliance with half the people involved depending on your mages for sneak.

Had to edit to add a factoid, I don't remember where either of my spawnponts were but I checked the map and neither were posted in this thread, come in expecting to do some hunting, it's pretty random.

If you can solo it at 66 as nin, I wonder if me and my bst duo partner can manage this at 63 since we wouldn't be tanking(pets).

Thanks for this post, I'm a big fan of less people. Everytime my parties(already capable enough) decide to alliance to get something done(to make it easier), the pickup people always die all over the place and we spend forever rescueing them.

It was like that in Ifrits Cauldron for ZM5. We picked up a party and they didn't bring sneak/invis items or mages willing to handle their members.. And after some mess, we ended up having to have our nin kite ashy around which was a real mess... while we kited bombs and raised people. Our party's deaths only came from the rescue missions...

Tiny note on meltdown
# Jan 18 2006 at 11:05 PM Rating: Decent
212 posts
The comments on meltdown confused me when coupled with the comments about golems, since golems do not do meltdown. I thought one or another of the data bits was incorrect. Just to clarify things:

Golems (NM and regular): meltdown X
Mission NMs are Golems and thus never meltdown.

Dolls (Cursed Puppets in Ro'Maeve): meltdown O
There might be dolls near some of the ???.

I didn't have to clear anything, but that could just have been lucky positioning (E-9). Trivial solo kill for 75 thf/nin. Killed one, other depopped, checked ???, got key item.

EDIT: Just tried to hand in key-item, but since I'm also on PM5-2 at present, I got Cid's "Uh, why aren't you out in Pso'Xja!?" speech. If this happens to you, keep on clicking Cid. Around the 3rd or 4th time you try to talk to him (no zoning needed, just click him), he'll run out of ways to say "go to Pso'Xja!" and let you finish Bastok 7-1.

First of all, I thought I would reiterated that you must receive the quest from a Gate Guard and then you must speak with Cid before going to Ro'Maeve.

I read all of the posts, and compiled a list of reported spawn points for the ???:

Got my RDM/nin I asked for a few friends to join me. (everyone was busy ><...

So I got a reraise gorget and bought 1 stack of sneak oil..
Went there.. and it took me 32 minutes to find a ???
checked the area and it was clear.. casted sneak and buffed myself and popped the 2 nm's
I casted slow on one of them and then soloed it...
Took a while but i was in no danger what so ever..
RDM/NIN rocks... killed him the other despawned.
then it took me about 14 minutes to find the other one and then then i buffed up thinking i had to fight the other one now or something.. this area was allot tuffer to pull one so i killed a weapon that was in the way.. then i sneaked up and buffed and then i got the "KeY ITEM" Cermet LOL

I thought I had to fight again. ohh well went back and got the mission done..

Did this today on a whim and it was a total cake-walk. 75 RDM, 75 THF and 75 BLM. Mission was for me (the RDM). We cleared out the only weapon in range, then I sneak-pulled on golem. We killed it in no time while the THF and I bounced hate. Went up, grabbed the second one and did it all over. Took less than 10 mins. If you sneak-pull them, trying to put them to sleep is unnecessary. Hoping the BCNM witll be just as easy.. ; ;

Well I tried sleeping them as a 75 BLM and sleepga was resisted. I'd assume they're not sleepable.

Still, we had a 72 NIN and 75 RDM/NIN and they each said they used *one* shihei in the fight. Must have horrible accuracy. Our only DD was 2 BLMs and those 2 (and a BRD came for fun).

Tried this today. Went horribly wrong. Someone brought a train of weapons, and someone else popped golems early. We kiled the golems and then attempted to zone, but many died (including me).

Did this a few days ago with a 18 person alliance.

Someone, no one admitted it, popped them before we could resneak, so we had to sleep the one and start beating down the other.

Luckily neither used meltdown, and the ??? was right there where the first one was after we killed them^^

We did this last night with the LS Wootnotdeadyet
Many thanks to Pupalei, Quedari, Alsender, Sakima, Butters, Zaydain, Recardo etc
this mission is actually a cake when everyone has silent oils...make sure everyone has like 5 silent oils with them...cause the aggro magic is insane in this area.
when everyone is in Ro'maeve send one scout ahead. Zaydain was our scout en said the ??? was in the west (near soms ledge going up). so we everyone Silent Oiled and start going to the ???. once the whole alliance was there we cleared the mobs that had a chance of aggroeing us during the golem fight. so we killed all of em and let Alsender touch the ??? with Silent oil...the 2 Golems will be standing their as dumb puppets which gave us the chance to grab them one by one.
no one came in danger so we did overall good LOL.

one side note though...when we defeated the 2 golems the ??? should have randomly spawned somewhere else...at us it spawned right at the same spot after the fight so we we're kinda lucky but we didnt noticed after like 10 minutes...
untill somebody said did we check the spot from before? we went back to the spot and there it was!!! the same ??? as before...we touched got our Key item and Bastok Mission 7-1 Complete!

At first we took the entire 18 person party around looking and several of us died. Keeping sneak on for 18 people is not easy.

A few suggestions later and the group decided to wait at the entrance while 3 NIN and 1 RDM (not me) went scouting.

We found the first ??? at E-10 and the second at L-10.

lost it...

Is it possible to still get the item or whatever at the 2nd ???, after the NM fight, if u have warped out?

After the fight, our alliance of 2 pt's went ahead to find the other ???. at a point, I had to recast sneak on myself, and then lost track of the others, and that place is not exactly a place u wanna get lost in.
Sad to say, I never reached the 2nd ???, before the alliance had teleportede out of there, leaving me behind. And with sneak wearing off in the middle of dolls weapons, I decided to 2hr and warp out. not much else to do.

So, is it possible to go back there, and get whatever I need from a ???, or do I need to fight the golems once again?

do you need sky access to do this mission?
The best part of Final Fantasy XI is its rich storyline. It separates this game from other MMORPGs. I chose to give my character a storyline that goes along with the game's storyline. I find that this is a more fun way to play the game. Playing the game just to fight in the endgame and collect elite equipment is very boring and is totally missing the main objective of the game, which is to guide your character through the storyline which is to save the world.

We did the mission yesterday...the hard part was to found the ???, we followed allakhazams directions...nothing...so 3 scouts started to search in all RoMave for the damned ???.

I found the first one in K-9 in a corner; so all the alliance move to the point, cleared the area and popped the Nms, easy fight; after that, again, search for the new ???.

Lol, I found it in D-9...(We lost a lot of time checking and rechecking D-10)...so, again all the alliance moved to the pos, took the item and Teleport-Dem for the 7-2 mission...but that another history...

Final note: Our poor whm died 4 times... ;_; sorry man...He was our only casuality...

Let me just say having done this and having had things go awry... if you're anywhere near a Doll, tell anyone with a stun tech to save their tp at all costs, or pray you have a fast drk or blm to stun. Why? Well, our scout mistakenly clicked the ??? and spawned the two golems (there's no confirmation dialogue like some missions/quests), and even though we killed the golems, people blew TP on them despite a weapon and doll link. Our BLM wasn't that fast...

And well:

...you get the picture. By time some of us were raised, the doll re-popped and meltdowned me to death -again-... I didn't even have time to get 100 TP to do anything with. It was a huge, huge mess, so be careful, make sure everyone's nearby and for the love of god, save your TP for stuns.

Also there's a rumor that after the golems are killed, you only have 10 minutes to find the ??? again. Totally untrue, we'd killed the golems, all died, all got raised, some died again, all unweakened, scouted/moved onto the next one, cleared the area, and still got the cermet key item without another fight.

Well, the current one up there is just a copy paste of the one on Mysterytour. Here's my version, to correspo nd with my work on 6-1/2

I highly suggest getting at least 12 60+ people, and really, the more is better. As most everyone knows, moving large alliances is a PAIN in the ***. I would say the best way through is being prepared to have to kill large amounts of weapons at any time. Area Effect sleep spells can often come in handy in add situations.

As Bennykun noted, send out one runner to find the ???, and then lead everyone to it after.

The ???s have different spawn points, and I don't have a complete list. However, the ones that I can verify are the following:
D-10, L-10, and L-7.

The weapons and golems aggro magic, so BRING SILENT OIL. There will be times where you can't recast sneak, so you have to use an item instead of magic - While it's fine to gang up on a single mob with 18 people, these aren't going to be very easy to kill with only single parties handling them - Because, when you make an alliance, the parties are often inbalanced. I can't stress avoiding adds, and sleeping them when you do get them, enough. It is vital you do not end up fighting more than you can handle.

You will get aggro. You will get adds. Don't lose your head. It's hard to find a safe place to raise a person, because they will aggro the caster. It is possible to deal with it. If you have to kill the mobs in the area to raise someone, do it carefully.

Getting to the NM is much more taxing and difficult than killing them. The fights are quite easy, just follow the usual setup. Golems are based on light, so I suggest doing a Dark skillchain, as it will be more effective

So I wander on, asking where you might have gone
From what I knew before, some things are worth fighting for
Night road leads me to a town because
I'm beckoned by the glow of kerosine and tumbleweed
They're calling out, forevermore worth fighting for

Okay for us it was a little different for us. The 1st spawn point of the Golem was at point D-10. Then we had search around for the 2nd spawn point which was at L-10.

Best idea is to get as large an alliance as you can for this. When we went we ended up fighting like 3-4 Omniscient Weapons at a time, and then due to miscommunication the NMs were triggered a bit early... we were up to the fight, though. The real trick is, after the fight, instead of running all over the place with your huge alliance, send one person out to find the new location of the ??? and call everyone over to him. Make sure you have the map (which you can buy in Mhaura, I believe). Good luck!
