Description

To get this quest, you must be on Chapter 3 of CoP (you must have defeated the Mammet BC in Riverne-Site #A01).

Speak to Despachiarie and he mentions one of the Mithra Sin Hunters was in the Safehold looking for Prishe. Since she wasn't there, the mithra raided Prishe's quarter's looking for something. Head to Prishe's quarters and speak to the guard, Parelbriaux. He claims to have tried to argue with the Sin Hunter, but the lady Odeya would not allow him to. He didn't notice anything missing from the room, but directs you to ask Odeya what is going on.

Odeya will help you, but only for some "tasty" Tavnazian Sheep Livers. Sheep Livers are drop from the Orcs in Lufaise Meadows. I got mine off an Orcish Brawler. Giving one to Odeya and she mentions that the Mithra headed straight for the Cathedral. She also notes that the mithra found a key to some part of the cathedral in Prishe's Room.

However, even at CoP Mission 3-4, Prishe's room remains locked. I would assume you need to be on the "Sacrarium" missions to go any further.

There are two sets of two storerooms each, on the third map of Phomiuna. (Doesn't help that Allakhazam only has the first two maps of Phomiuna and not the third.) You can't get from one set of storerooms to the other.

In either case, you want to find your way to a hidden passage running north-south between the two storerooms of that set (you do this by checking the appropriate ??? - there are quite a few of them in the storerooms).

Be careful not to go through an east-west door opened by a different ???, because this can only be opened from one side, and it's thus a one-way trip (back to the entrance) unless someone's still on the original side and can reopen it.

The western set of storerooms is where you go for CoP mission 2-3. The eastern set of storerooms is where you go for this quest. You will need a Bronze Key or a THF (to lockpick) either way. And unless you have *very* good stealth skills, you'll need a party that can take out Stegotaurs, because they're True Sight and the only way to avoid aggro is to walk behind them.

To get to the western set of storerooms, get to the second map of Phomiuna, then go to (G-8). Pick the lock and proceed west, and climb the ladder at (E-8).

To get to the eastern set of storerooms (this is where you want to go for this quest), get to the second map of Phomiuna, then go to (J-6). Pick the lock and proceed east, then follow the tunnels south, east, south, and east again to the ladder at (M-8).

After that the two sets of storerooms are pretty much symmetrical. You start in an entrance room (with the ladder back down) and can go either north or south to find a path to the respective storeroom. There will always be two Stegotaurs along that path, and there will always be fomors in the storeroom, so handle it appropriately.

Anyway, once you make it to the eastern set of storerooms, go to the *southern* storeroom and poke around in the very northeast corner (on the far side of the shelves) to find the ??? to open the passage. (Remember, if you open the passage west, don't go through it.)

The passage will be in the northern wall just west of the ???. Go through, and then find your way to the Ornate Gate halfway between the two storerooms. Click it for a cutscene and get out of there however you see fit.

Return to Odeya to finish the quest.

One interesting tidbit: once upstairs, i went to the wrong passageway (west).. after using mijin gakure on the stegs, self-reraise from RR earring (i cleared my fomor hate, and i had a key from helping people with subligar runs earlier on) i went inside the library anyway.

By randomly targetting stuff, i was able to target an Oil Lamp (on the other side of the wall), and somehow managed to open the door :D

I finished this quest today as thf/nin using thief tools, and Ichi + Flee + Perfect Dodge in the hallway before the fomors' room, died behind the bookshelf, wait for taurus to despawn and fomors to go back, RRed and went thru.

Well i finished it anyway, but the story is not complete yet as it seems, and it looks very interesting to me indeed, so i went to sandy to the cathedral looking for "Rainemard", but couldn't find it, i used the Mob Lookout tool here in Alla and didn't find any npc with that name either, so my guess is that Rainemard is not around and there's no continuation to this quest yet?

Spoilers for Red Mages who haven't completed their AF runs yet:

"Rainemard" was the name of the Elvaan Red Mage who is responsible for saving his daughter from an evil spirit masquerading as the 'ghost' of the San d'Orian cathedral. Not sure what connection it has to the quest just yet - but if you're looking for the NPC itself - you're not going to find it. Rainemard only makes two appearances that I've heard of - both of which occur during the Red Mage AF quest progression.

In other words - Rainemard the NPC does not currently exist. He only makes a brief appearance in cutscenes. It sounds like you're barking up the wrong tree.

After clearing my Fomor hate so there would be no agro, I headed in as a THF. Used Thief's Tools to get past the gate and headed to the warehouse. The two Stegotaurs in the hallway guarding the warehouse would only move East/West so there was no chance of avoiding aggro. So I used a reraise earring, reapplied shadows, got the first agro trying to sneak by, and flee'd into the warehouse where I died. After getting up and having no agro from Fomor it was as easy walk to the Cut Scene and warp out.

Pretty easy aside from the death. Also if I was in a group I could have used perfect dodge while the others made it to a safe spot, so that's an option if other people you know need the quest.

Also the warehouse had 3 ??? one of which gave me the map of Phomiuna Aqueducts so that was a nice surprise :)

Talk to Despachiaire on the top floor at (K-10) to being the quest. He will mention of the Mithra Sin Hunter. Then go to Prishe's room at (K-7) and talk to Parelbriaux and he will tell you about Odeya who is at (J-10). She will ask for a Tavnazian Sheep Liver which you can get off the orcs outisde. After this...I dunno, I am guessing you need to have cleared COP 4-3 to enter Prishe's room.
Help Pls...
# Jun 12 2005 at 6:38 PM Rating: Decent
Ok... Not sure what's going on here... I got the CS from Despachiarie. I spoke to him again, to make sure I got all of it, and it started another Scene for my next COP mission (I'm on 5-1 or 5-2, can't remember which).

When I went to talk to Parelbriaux after Despachiarie, I couldn't get the next scene... All he'll say to me is that Ulmia and Prishe have run off again, and he wont talk to me about the Sin Hunter...

I got the laundry message from Odeya, and I don't have the quest in my current quest logs...

Can someone help me out here? Do I have to clear the COP mission to continue this quest? Did I miss something between Despachiarie and Parelbriaux?

Thx.

Rainemard is Deceased, if you have done RDM AF you would find this out. He is the Ghost of the Red Mage who is involved with the RDM AF storyline. So... I tried talking to everyone related to the AF quests, as well as everyone in the Chateau and the Cathedreal and nothing orz... anyone know what to do?

This is a guide for the rest of the quest (after the part already given in the main quest desc, namely talk to A B C and go give Odeya a Tavnazian Sheep Liver).

There are two sets of two storerooms each, on the third map of Phomiuna. (Doesn't help that Allakhazam only has the first two maps of Phomiuna and not the third.) You can't get from one set of storerooms to the other.

In either case, you want to find your way to a hidden passage running north-south between the two storerooms of that set (you do this by checking the appropriate ??? - there are quite a few of them in the storerooms).

Be careful not to go through an east-west door opened by a different ???, because this can only be opened from one side, and it's thus a one-way trip (back to the entrance) unless someone's still on the original side and can reopen it.

The western set of storerooms is where you go for CoP mission 2-3. The eastern set of storerooms is where you go for this quest. You will need a Bronze Key or a THF (to lockpick) either way. And unless you have *very* good stealth skills, you'll need a party that can take out Stegotaurs, because they're True Sight and the only way to avoid aggro is to walk behind them.

To get to the western set of storerooms, get to the second map of Phomiuna, then go to (G-8). Pick the lock and proceed west, and climb the ladder at (E-8).

To get to the eastern set of storerooms (this is where you want to go for this quest), get to the second map of Phomiuna, then go to (J-6). Pick the lock and proceed east, then follow the tunnels south, east, south, and east again to the ladder at (M-8).

After that the two sets of storerooms are pretty much symmetrical. You start in an entrance room (with the ladder back down) and can go either north or south to find a path to the respective storeroom. There will always be two Stegotaurs along that path, and there will always be fomors in the storeroom, so handle it appropriately.

The passage will be in the northern wall just west of the ???. Go through, and then find your way to the Ornate Gate halfway between the two storerooms. Click it for a cutscene and get out of there however you see fit.

Return to Odeya to finish the quest. The name Rainemard sounds familiar, but I can't put my finger on where exactly. I may also just be imagining things. Regardless, he's nowhere to be found in the San d'Orian cathedral.

(Anyone who's done the San d'Orian missions probably knows full well what this sword is.)

Go to Aqueducts and click on the doors (can't remember which set) to get a CS. Then return and talk to Odeya from earlier.

Sounds like there's a follow-up quest to talk to Rainemard in Sandy Cathedral. I couldnt find him anywhere there though, even using widescan. It may be that you cant see him until you're on a later chapter (i'm on ch. 5 now), or that it hasnt been added yet.

If anyone has any info on follow-up quest, please post here.

Okay you dont have to go to sacarium its the sanctuary from Phomiuon Aqeducts... where you got the CS with nag.

Go there get another CS with the mithran tracker concerning a blade that can take down the mightest of dragons vrtra...

Return to Odeya and get a CS and then your reward of 4k... she tells you about some elvann that may have been at the sandorian cathedreal but I have yet to find him on Wide scan anywhere related..

Maybe they will add more later..

Alot of the older new quests have ALOT of story and ALOT of running around for small rewards .. tuning in and tuning out come to mind.


***Side note***

You can... make it all the way to Sanctuary in Phomioun solo... however if you do so you will have to be patient and time your moves for the 2 stegataurs gaurding the room before u get there.

I went with a friend and we managed to sneak by the stegs... Remember area is cap 40 so.. can be kinda stressfull

If it's the spot where you get the cutscene with Nag then you can't truely solo it without having a Bronze Key to get to that area. Which would require farming it from fomors, whom to most jobs, arn't solo'able in that capped area.

If I'm wrong and it's in another spot not requiring that key... please tell me! ^.~
