Royaulais Destin himself has summoned you for a vital mission. Seek audience with His Majesty in Chateau d'Oraguille immediately.
Note: You must wait to start this mission until AFTER you have seen the long cut scene following the completion of Mission 8-1. This is done by turning the key item into Halver, waiting until midnight JST, then zoning into Northern San d'Oria. Once you have seen this cut scene, you should be able to get this mission from the gate guard. Also, since this mission is not a BC, anyone can come along and help you. They don't have to be on this mission, or even from San d'Oria.
After getting the mission from the gate guard go talk to the King then go to the Knights' Quarters (upon entering the castle turn left and go through he door) and talk to Rahal. Rahal should give you a key item: the Crystal Dowser. You now need to go to Temple of Uggalepih, off of Yhoator Jungle. You will only need Invisible for the entire zone, although if you are 70+, you will not get aggro through most of the area (check the mobs frequently to know when you need to Invis).
The first part requires you to get a Prelate Key (Rare/Ex and one use only) which are dropped by Tonberry Stabbers. This key allows you to enter the door for part 2. To get the key you go left upon zoning into the Temple and go through the granite door. Go north, then east, then north, following the corridor until your reach the stairs and zone out to Yhoator Jungle. From here on go straight then make a right turn followed by another right and go straight until you zone again. You're now back into the Temple with a staircase leading down and right, camp here and look for Tonberry Stabbers. The key is not a rare drop, but certainly doesn't drop on every kill, either, so bringing a thief is recommended. Once you get the key, cast Escape to get back to the front door (it's quicker). Alternatively, you can just backtrack and return to the main entrance.
The second part requires you to backtrack to the entrance. Once you enter the Temple through the main entrance at (J-11) of Yhoator Jungle, take the path leading right and keep going right until you zone out to another section of Yhoator. Turn left, keep going and you'll zone into the Temple. If you run into a wooden gate, you know you're heading the right way. Continue south (around a couple of circular rooms that look like splits in the road, but aren't in reality) until you come to a T-intersection at (H-10). Turn left and you will meet the Temple Guardian. It is a doll mob, so Barfira and/or Stun are recommended, as it will Meltdown and do a lot of damage, but other than that it's very easy. Once it is dead, the door will open leading to a room with four sets of staircases. Also in this room is the Manipulator, that aggros only to magic. He circles the perimeter of the room, which is also inhabited by a lot of Tonberries. If you have brought the recommended party you should be able to take out the Manipulator easily, but he's still tough, especially with links. There is, however, no real reason to kill the Manipulator for this quest unless you just feel like it.
There is a door right above where you first enter this room so run up the staircase directly above you, not the one on the other side. Trade the Prelate Key to enter (Note: it is a one-time-use key); the door can be re-opened from the inside. Once in, keep going and when you reach a fork in the road turn left. You should now see four doors. This is where the boss fight is.
Clear the hallway of all Tonberries and Magic Jars. Doors 1 (farthest down), 2, and 4 (closest to you) is where you need to go into and click on the ??? to receive three fragments of a broken key. In room #1, there are two ???. The first ??? will mention something about the Crystal Dowser, but will not give you a key item. There is another ??? in the same room (all the correct ??? are on bookcases) that will give you a key item. Once you have all three key items, DO NOT click on door number 3 until you are ready to fight the NM's.
When you have the fragments and are ready, touch door 3. Nio-Hum and Nio-A will pop. After killing them, click on door #3 to get a cut scene, but no key item. You will get a message saying "Your Investigation is Over." This is your cue to return to Chateau d'Oraguille. Go to the Audience chamber and the king will grant you your reward (Rank 9 and 80,000 gil).
