Description

You must have a Katana skill of at least 250 and be at least level 72 to begin this quest. If you're ready to accept the mission, head to Norg and speak with Ryoma.

He will hand you a key item as well as a katana, the Kodachi of Trials. He instructs you to master the katana by weakening it's powers, which roughly means you need to remove the latent effect off of it by participating in skillchains and performing weapon skills. The number of SCs and WSs you need to do before the sword is sufficiently weakened goes by a strict point-based system:

Solo-WS or opening any level SC: 1 pt.

Close LVL1 SC: 2 pt.

Close LVL2 SC: 3 pt.

Close LVL3 SC: 5 pt.






- Total Needed: 300 pt.




-

Participate in SCs until you've accumulated enough points for the latent effects on the Kodachi of Trials to dissappear. (Note: the text on the item description will remain, but the effects will expire)

After the latent effects are off of the Kodachi of Trials, return to Ryoma and trade him the blade. He will hand you yet another key item and tell you to proceed to the Labyrinth of Onzozo.

Head to (I-5) and touch the ??? there. An NM crab named Megapod Megalops will appear. Defeat him. Once he is dead, check the ??? again to receive yet another key item.

Now head back to Norg and speak w/ Ryoma again. After a short cutscene, you will receive your long-awaited prize: Blade: Ku!

Soloed this as 75 nin/whm. Not particularly hard but the fight is long. about 30 mins.
All debuffs sticked easily but this crab hits hard when it hit you. About 200-300s damage each blow. Try not to get hit at all.

Just did this fight about an hour ago. Went with a DRK75/THF37 to the Boyahda Tree for the SC part of it (Cross Reaper to Blade: Ten). Easy stuff there. Went to the Labyrinth of Onzozo with a BRD71/WHM35, THF75/NIN37, & of course myself, NIN72/WAR36. The THF only got hit once when shadows were down, otherwise we duo blinked tanked & did free WS. BRD kept Mambo & March on us at all times, while using Magic Finale on the NM when needed. Overall, this fight was one of the easiest in the game (IMHO at least). Blade: Ku is just too kool looking.

apparantly its possible to do this at 71 if youve meritted katana skill.

i say apparantly because im presently 67 lol and my knowledge of merits is somewhat limited. from what i can gather you can only merit traits your job can use and combine this with the fact theres maybe 2 katana's that are useable by jobs other than ninja and i'm thinking there cant be much in the way of othr jobs that specialise in katanas lol.

anyway my question at such time i can do this quest will i need the katana main hand or can i have it off-hand. i weapon skill like crazy in exp parties and im thinking if i can off hand this it wouldnt hold me back to much

ok well, :
this is for the record... i just got my blade: ku and OMG i love it... but yes its true it dont do as much dmg and blade: jin. any how, dont try to solo this NM... hes a bad lil mama and takes a while to kill it. I went in as a 73 ninja and had a lv 71 whm and 75 rdm with me.. rdm was camping gob for moldy and i was gonna try to duo this NM (boy was i wrong to do that)
so i spawn the NM and remember keep him blinded and slowed at all times, this will be the best defense you will have against him. my hits were about in the 30-50s each hit and blade:jin was hitting about mid 200s but this fight was hard... when my shadows feel he was able to hit me for mid 200's and that kind of a hit hurts. the whm was spaming haste and regen III on me and the rdm had to come from what he was doing to help me out and dispel the mobs evasion boost. any who, the fight lasted about 10 mins. and the whm ran out of MP and had to use benediction and the rdm was also our of mp and the NM was no longer blinded. so after he was down to about 3% life i could not get a shadow up an he was hurting me.. sure enough i was able to get my NI up and the rdm and whm casted cure III on me... he killd my shadows again and both mage are out of mp and i am down to about 200 hp.. he gets off one more hit on me and take me down to 46 hp and the rdm converts and casted thunder III to kill the mob... OMG this fight was crazy and exciting... i recommend taking a rdm or brd for dispel and take a whm and some dd's
next week we are going to do it again for another LS buddy so this time we will come ready to kick some ****

I realize that you know you are posting at the wrong page but really wanted to get your point across.

Little bit of advice. Go and do this during the night time. You will have to pop and run for the Rancor Den zone. Have your AF boots on and you will make it there very easy. If you did it right, only the MNK mob should have stuck close to the zone as he should have been the mob that was in red. This is a pretty tough fight but I did it all by myself. You can even stay by the zone, try to stick poison on him, and zone into the den when he pops his hundred fists. He wont regain any hp, but you wont have to deal with shadows and hundredfisting monks. By the time you slowly take him down, the other two will have despawned and you can easily touch the ??? for your last trick box.

Have some faith, think about what your job can do. Theres always a way around obsticles.

I just got my final weaponskill at level 73. I tried to solo it, but only got it down to halfway before dying. Props go out to Fitman and Agyuyu who were there. First thanks for raising me and second for teaming up and helping me finish off the crab!

Kudos to you guys.

Beat this NM up last night...

NIN 72, WHM 75, RDM 73, WAR 63.

We didn't get aggro from anything normal in the area (except the 63), so if you're 72+ for all members you should be okay. We ended up clearing out the north tunnel (1 gob and 1 toad) so the WAR could help. FYI...an Air Elemental Popped on us and aggrod our WHM 75, but we slept it the whole fight no worries.

The fight went pretty well. I got hit a bunch of times...usually for about 250 or so. But for the most part, with Haste and good shadows it's not hard. Had some difficulty with debuffs on him, but again, nothing I usually couldn't recast and stick. Took probably 10 minutes or so, I didn't hit for much normally, but berserk kicked my damage up considerably.

Just duo'd this with 73BRD as 74NIN/BLM(forgot to change sub :/). Fight took about 10mins, probably less with WAR sub. Elegey, 2x Mambo did the job. I only got hit twice near the end because everything the Crab had wore off and the BRD went afk, hit me for 200 each time but finished it off with a Huton.

For NIN this is amazingly easy, just bring along a DRK friend who is 65 or higher, have them purchase a lvl 5 scythe. If you tank, the DRK can open up lvl3 SC's all day with cross reaper, just remember to have the DRK sub /WAR for Double Strike. The best place I've found for this is Boyhada Tree Crabs, not ironshells. You can get usually 2 SC's per crab and it only takes about 2 hrs to unlock. Good Luck


even easier, takes about an hour or so in The Boyahada Tree on Robber crabs, sam 65+ any sub is good + you as nin. usually 2-3 chains per crab if you manage to find the ones that are VT. no need for a level 5 scythe or anything of the sort, there are plenty of mobs to kill easily. BTW keep in mind that the mobs you use WS's on HAVE to be EP or higher.

I received this quest at NIN72, katana is for lvl 71 but you do need weapon skill at 250. Equip as main weapon, along with a THF60 we went to Quick Sand Caves and killed Anticans, did Detonation SC for about an hour maybe hour and a half. I uneqiped the Kodachi of Trials
and I lost the +20HP effect, went back to Norg talked to Ryoma, he sent me to Onzozo. Along with 75RDM/NIN, ??RNG/WHM, and myself 72NIN/WAR we faught the nm Crab - I'm sorry I don't know location(will find out and reply again) Pretty easy fight for our set up, RDM/NIN tanked a bit, but I gained hate after a while. He does hit pretty hard, keep shadows up fast as you can. After he died I rechecked the ???, and received a Key Item. Returned to Ryoma and got Blade: Ku - delivers dmg 5-fold. Looks Great, and does decent dmg, Blade: Jin still the strongest tho I think.

You got 300 points on your trial weapon in 60-90 mins doing a level 1 SC? Assuming you were closing the SC that would require 150 SCs in 90 mins. O.o Very doubtful...

duh...of course you lose it when you unequip it since the latent is on the weapon. Latent effects always go away when you unequip the item. When the latent effect goes away while it is still equipped is when you have reached your point total.

Did you actually do this Quest or are you one of those people who just likes to post stuff so you can see your name on here? If you are going to post something get your facts straight so that you at least look like you actually did it. You might be able to get 300 points in 60-90 mins doing level 3 SCs(60 SCs if you close it or 100 if you open it, still doubtful though) but definitely not doing level 1. Yikes dude.

150 skill chains in 90 minutes.

thats a skill chain every 36 seconds. (INCREDIBLY TOUGH)

now you could sub samurai for meditate and toss in the odd icarus wing to help you out but both of those have timers lol so not something you can do alot

saying that though i can rack up 20-25% tp in a volley by dual wield and then toss a shuriken or chakram and combined with the occassional double attack and using this i can get 100 tp in 40 - 45 seconds allowing for misses with ranged attacks or the odd phase where double attack seems to break down lol.

and at 45 seconds a skillchain it would take me 112 minutes to rack up the 150 chains. or if i get lucky and hit at 40 seconds then thats 100 minutes which when you think about it isnt all that far off 90 minutes. so if i were to sub sam and meditate every oportunity i got then suddenly the (INCREDIBLY TOUGH) 90 minutes seems a whole lot easier.

I Will say it is still (INCREDIBLY TOUGH) though as i very rarely see a ninja with good throwing skill and you of course need a level 30 sam to sub
main??

not all jobs get their wsnm at 71, i believe pld can't do Great Sword wsnm till lvl 75, but can do sword at 71. the level at which you will be able to do your wsnm is largely contributed to by jobs skill of said weapon. Sam is A+ in great katana, however nin is A+ in throwing, A- in katana. just a little info for ya
