Mission Orders

Brilliant lights, fearsome beasts, a mysterious laboratory... What do all these have to do with the strange boy brought back to Doctor Monberaux's clinic in Upper Jeuno?

Description

This is the first mission in the Chains of Promathia (CoP) expansion mission set, most stumble upon this by accident zoning monsters to Delkfutt's tower and get confused by the new mission log system. This first mission is split in to three parts, when you are done you will notice the mission The Rites of Life in your CoP mission log and below it three slightly indented sections, most mistake these as separate missions.

This first missions is the same as the Zilart as it is entirely made up of a series of cut scenes that introduce you to the storyline. To start the first cut scene (if you haven't stumbled upon it yet) you must travel to Lower Delkfutt's Tower located in Qufim Island. Once you enter, you will be witness to a cut scene involving Jeunonian Scientists trying to operate a strange device. Disaster occurs. The only thing left in the room is the Enigmatic Youth. Wolfgang then sends someone to fetch the doctor.

Once you have observed this cutscene, head to Upper Jeuno, another cut scene will commence involving Wolfgang, Monberaux, and the Enigmatic Youth. Once this cut scene ends, head to area (G-10) and talk to Monberaux, where another cut scene takes place. You will receive a Key Item, the Mysterious Amulet.

Congratulations! You have now completed CoP Mission 1-1.

LOL. This is exactly what happened to me. I did stumble upon this doing mission 3-3 for Bastok, and oddly enough, I thought the cutscenes were all part of that particular mission.

At this time, I had absoloutely no clue that I started the CoP missions.

It can be done at any level. The only hard part is getting through qufim to delkfutt. You could do it at level one with some powders and oils. [Most things aggro to sound]

You have to go to the Infirmary (next door to the temple) and talk to the doctor to get a second cutscene in Upper Jeuno (involving the guards) before you get a cutscene from the guards themselves.

Hi i just completed P.Holla and i thought id share some tips since this page is sorta lacking.
1. The Mobs All have True Sight, common knowledge just thought id reiterate it.
2. I suggest not going as an allaince. We had a lot of success just going as a complete party.
3. Must have at least one Rng and One Smn in your party. The Orbs that you must kill to teleport to the next level are range and magic only.
4. Some of the Orbs are duds. Just a warning.
5. Just becarful and treat the mobs as if you were dodging goblins in the dunes. If there not looking at you, you wont get aggroed if you stay some distance away. I also suggest hugging the borders.

During BCNM:
1. Bring at least one poison potion and some echo drops.
2. The NM will take away buffs or a large amount of HP so make sure you have lots of buffs on.
3. Have the Mages stand on the Stairs, and each ranger on opposite sides of the room to stall the NM when the hate changes.

Have Fun! Pretty much all of this I learned from Bihpi so thanks to him.

I have CoP installed, but when i entered Lower Tower i didn't get a cut scene. I wondered if the reason may have been that i had sandy mission 3/3 flagged and was doing it. IF i go back to the tower w/ the mission finished owuld i see this cut scene and be able to enter the Promyvions? Please let me know.

You need to head back in. If it doesn not trigger a long cutscene, then you need to double-check that CoP is properly installed.

Ii that does not do the trick, try contacting a GM. There is nothing that should prevent you from seeing it. I saw it as a level 21, with Missions active.

Hi, I just got the expanison and was wondering if there where any requirements needed to start the quest other then regester CoP. For example to start the first Zilart mission u have to be rank 6+. Being only rank 3 and lv 40 I don't see the shadown lord commin down anytime soon. I would really like to check out the new area though so if someone could get me this info. Thanks :)

No there are no other requirements other than registering the expansion before playing. Once you log int FFXI, zone into Delfkuts Tower in Quafim Island for a really cool cutscene. This is the above first cutscene and the start of this misson.

After that cutscene just continue to follow the above instructions. The other areas included in the expansion you can just zone into without doing this mission(s).

I believe the Memory Flux is for the quest to get a map of Promyvion - Holla. This is word of mouth, so I don't know if this is a fact, and haven't taken the time to check out if it's true as a map of promyvion A.) Is obviously hard to obtain, B.) Not really necessary, the Memory Receptacles are easy to find, and C.) I'm never going back there once I beat it. ;D

yeah...you dont waste a crystal when you do trade to the footprint... he doesnt take it, you just watch the Cutscene again. This can be done with any of the Gob Footprints in areas that you have seen one or more cutscenes in. There is some advice! I saw the BST one from Qufim, the Windy Mission 1-3 in Sarutabaruta, and this one twice. Hope this helped you out!

in the CoP section of missions I have something called "Ancient Flames Beckon" as the first thing on the list, when I click on it the text box where the mission descrition would be is blank, and this was already in the completed section as soon as I installed CoP.

also, I don't know if this is some kind of glitch or what but my current mission for CoP shows as current and completed, even though I just started it. I finished The Rites of Life and am now on Below the Arks.

Ancient Flames Beckon is what you have to choose when you go to fight the BCNM at the very bottom of Promyvion. I fought Promyvion - Mea BCNM and ******* it was tough. We almost won, and would have if our whm had gotten of benediction (the NM used his carousel move which did 290ish damage to me and knocks everyone way back so the whm was no longer in range) or if the WAR/NIN had used his 2hr or kept hate (which is incredibly hard to do with this mob). Anyway, tough fight but easy if you use that special anima or if you've done it before and know what to do. My suggestion? Take it down slowly without any 2hr's, then when it gets low and starts to spam carousel, that's when you 2hr to try to take it down from there as quickly as possible.

I heard about this mission from my Ls and decided to try it. I have loaded up Chains of Promathia and then went out to Delkfutt's. I entered the tower and nothing happened. I checked and it said Lower Delkfutt's so I decided I probably have to go farther down into the tower, all the way to the basement where I went for mission 3-3.

Anyways I go down there with my Key and still nothing happens. So I leave and go to Jueno and decide to give it one more try and head upwards into the tower. I enter the tower and still nothing happens.

I asked my LS and checked to see if I couldn't have any other missions open or something and they said that I could have other missions going and still do this one.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong here?

I hit 41 as a Drk and got my rank 5! Yay! So I decided since I can travel almost anywhere fast I wanted to farm in Quifim and I was like maybe I could kill some giants in the tower. I enter it and it takes a while to load. <thinking server problems?> I was wrong it actually was a trigger for the CoP missions. 0_0 was the expression on my face as I viewed the cutscene. I'm not gonna reveal anything! :p
