To capture the mysterious boy, you must first locate the fourth mothercrystal. To do this, you have been ordered to travel to the nations of Bastok, Windurst, and San d'Oria to learn of the Multinational Expedition that was held nearly thirty years ago.
After cutscene, the mission divides into 2 parts - SanDoria route and Windurst route. Route details are given below. You are free to go through either route. You can also go through both routes at the same time since there's no need to complete one route to start the next. After completing both routes, head back to Metalworks and talk to Cid.
M 3-3A: SanDoria Route (Emerald Waters)
3-3 A1: Enter North Sandoria to start this leg of the mission.
3-3 A2(Vicissitudes): Talk to Arnau the priest in the Cathedral. Next talk to Chasalvige in the Manuscript Room on the left.
3-3 A3(Descendents of Line Lost): Next go to Carpenter's Landing via the (E-6) Entrance Point in Jugner Forest. Look for a NPC called Guilloud beside a boulder at (H-10). Talking to him will spawn a Malboro mob named Overgrown Ivy. LV75 character with nin or whm sub should be sufficient to defeat it however watch out for it's Hundred Fist ability.
3-3 A4 (Louverance): After defeating Overgrown Ivy, talk to Guilloud again, then return to South San D�oria and look for Hinaree at the Manor (B-6). This ends the Sandorian leg.
M 3-3B: Windurst Route (Memories of a Maiden)
3-3 B1: Enter Windurst waters to start this leg of the mission.
3-3 B2 (Comedy of Errors): Head to Rhinostery right-hand room (J-9) and talk to Ohbiru-Dohbiru. Next go to Winwalls and talk to Yoran-Moran at his house. Then go back to Windurst waters to Timbre Timbers Tavern (F-10) and talk to Kyume-Romeh.
3-3 B3 (Comedy of Errors): Go to the southern portion of Windurst waters to the house of Honoi-Gomoi (E-7). Talk to Honoi-Gomoi to receive a key item Mimeo Mirror. Go back to Winwalls again to talk to Yoran-Oran for the method to repair the mirror.
To repair the mirror, you need to go to Attohwa Chasm to find a point marked "Loose Sand" (K-8). Checking the point will spawn a Antlion mob called Lioumere. Try to fight it away from the Loose Sand spawn, if it returns to the base, its HP will be recovered. Defeat it and check the Loose Sand again to get another key item Mimeo Egg. Next, you'll need to climb the intricate mountain of Parrademo Tor to reach the summit within a time limit of 1 hour before the egg disappears and check a point marked "Cradle of Rebirth" to get 3 Mimeo Feathers as key item. If you can't get to the top in time, you'll have to check the Loose Sand again (without any antlion fights) and try again. The starting point for the climb up is located somewhere to the southeast corner of the Tor near the Loose Sand. The path is very narrow with no natural barriers so one wrong step and u fall down. However along the way there are some smog barriers that are either permanent or temporary. If you encounter a permanent smog barrier, it usually indicates that you need to continue by falling one step down to the path below. Try to work your way up the summit in a anti-clockwise direction. Return to Windurst and talk to Yoran-Oran.
3-3 B4 (Exit Stage Left): Go to Windurst Walls and talk to Yoran-Oran, then go tp Port Windurst and talk to Yujuju (M-6), then Windurst Waters northern (G-8) and talk to Tosuka-Porika, then go talk to Yoran-Oran again to finish the mission.
It is not necessary to talk to CID to finish this mission because that is part of the next mission, PM 3-4 Tending Aged Wounds.
