Luto has recently discovered that another mirror bearing strange properties exists in the world. It is supposedly somewhere in San d'Oria and she wants you to go look for it.


Talk to Luto Mewrilah in Upper Jeuno. She asks that you find out information about the broken mirror from previous quests and sends you to the Optistery in Windurst to find a book on it. Go to the Optistery in Windurst Waters (north map) and speak with Tosuka-Porika (G-8) to get a cutscene involving Ritopopo, who is researching the mirrors of legend. Ritopopo has just found the information you seek and is unwilling to give it up. But, she's hungry. In order to share her information she asks you rather slyly to bring Tosuka-Porika the following:

After trading the items to Tosuka-Porika you will receive another cutscene and some information that you take back to Luto Mewrilah in Upper Jeuno. You receive another cutscene in Upper Jeuno and a suggestion by your fellow to find Palometa. Go to Port Jeuno and find Khumo Daramasteh (J-8) near the entryway to the Kazham airship docks and speak with her. Another cutscene follows with more information revealing a deeper plot... Reward is: Your feel your bond for friendship strengthening with your fellow.

The tavern right outside the Optistery sells it I believe.
First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

First off people, make sure you are posting under the CORRECT quest. I see posts here with information for other quests, which is wasted by posting it on this quest. Talking about going into a Promy or Jugner forest is not relevant to THIS quest. Secondly, I just got this quest, with my lv31 NPC, so the NPC level has nothing to do with the quest. I do, however, call her at the Rendezvous points often, even if for no real purpose. I have not traded new weapons to her yet (although I have tried a couple times). My Jeuno fame has been Hero level for quite a while, and I had not gotten this quest before, so it must have something to do with how often you talk to your NPC.

actually, your NPC says he sees the girl you rescued from Eldieme Necroplis with his mirror, he sees her in port Jeuno, so you go there, and presumably speak to as many NPCs as possible until someone says something that relates to this quest... and this happens to bet he Mithra near the homepoint. You then get a long cutscene involving the little girl, and you finally finish the quest.

What's needed for quest
# Mar 04 2006 at 3:58 PM Rating: Default
I've seen a few comments about what you need to do to get this quest, some of which are wrong.

You MUST talk to your NPC at the randevouz point often to get the quest. I have called her maybe a dozen times or so (but less than 20) to fight and her level is 32. I had recently gotten the "Apperance" option (which is Bronze Cap right now). I had not called her since, but I just talked to her then went to Luto. She gave me the quest.
Basically, every time you are in Jeuno, go talk to your NPC Fellow, regardless of whether you recently called to level/fight.

Well once you get the pearl you equip it as an earring. After like ten seconds it becomes active. Then you go into your items and use it and you summon your NPC.

I decided I wanted to do the NPC quests over again because I wasn't happy with the one I'd chosen. I went to talk to Luto to start over, and she automatically initiated this quest. I had already done the first weapon upgrade, but not the second. I talked to ger again without doing the quest and told her I wanted to start over.

Since then, I've leveled my new NPC to 32, called her many times, talked to her at Rendezvous Points every day and done two weapon upgrades, and still not gotten this quest again. So I'd guess that my asking to start over somehow set me back and has delayed this quest.
new headgear?

after i did this quest i talked to my NPC at the rendevous point, and there was a new option added. Lets talk about appearance. so i got a new headgear, but its a green ribbon. it almost looks specific to my model NPC. i have a blonde mithra with hair tied back and the green ribbon looks to be on the back of her head, although im not quite sure what it looks like because i already summoned her today. well il see about this tomorrow when im levelling her i guess.

Go to the Optistery in Windurst Waters and speak with Hariga-Origa (F-8) and you will get a cutscene involving Ritopopo, who is researching the mirriors of legend.

Need to talk to Tosuka-Porika (G-8) to start the cut-scene with Ritopopo.

As previously stated Hariga-Origa has nothing to do with this quest. After arriving in Windy head to the Optistery in Windhurst Waters G-8 and talk to Tosuka-Porika. Tosuka-Porika is the NPC that will give you the cutscene about the book. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

I've opened this quest - it's in my quest log - but I don't get the cutscene from Tosuka-Porika.

I don't have any other quests from him open (I just did one), and I have max Windy fame.

I've already done this quest on Likibiki with no problems... but I just can't seem to get the cutscene...

Any ideas?

the NPC will ask player to help with somethign in one of the promy. the randevouz point is insde promy so you probably have to erase some memories before u enter. secondly, ur lookign for a ??? on the first level so dont try to fignt the NM to get to up levels. she gets XP when quest i done. also note that you hve 45 minutes to complete quests, which confirms that the aloted time to keep NPC out at any given time is 45 minutes. my guess is, SE will make more promy quests to increase vairus aspect of the NPC like staying longer etc...
some more info on this quest...

A few remarks regarding this quest..

- The NPC in Windurst Waters, Optistery, is Tosuka-Porika at (G-8).

- You should be able to activate this quest after having called your NPC 20 to 25 times, and after the second weapon upgrade.

- The reward, 'strengthening of bond of friendship between you and your fellow' results in more ways to customize your NPC. When talking to him/her at the meeting point (i.e. Ru'Lude Gardens) you can now change his/her appearance. For now, after this quest, the only thing you can change is headgear. The type of headgear suggested most likely depends on the active combat style. Mine is Healer type and suggested a faceguard. I expect that more calls and further quests will allow you to change your NPC's appearance even more.

There is no reduction in recharge time on the pearl. I haven't tested yet if he stays around longer than 15 critters or 45 minutes (but I hope so. ^^)

I was able to trigger the next quest with your NPC shortly after getting her to lvl 42. As with the other posts, I don't think level has anything to do with it. I believe it has to do with how often you use your NPC. Anyway, the next quest is called "Blighted Gloom" and Luto asks you to go to Korrolak Tunnel <sp> and find some Vitrallum that can be obtained from defeating a "rare slime" to be used to repair the mirror. As with most quest NMs, I assumed that this jelly was a forced pop from a ???, and surprizingly I was correct. The ??? can be found in the Bogy area near the Western Atelpa Dessert zone (near the place you need to go for the NIN quest) at the point where F-9/10 and G-9/10 all intersect. There are two ??? in this area, so if the first one doesn't work, try the one on the other side of the area. When you target the ???, you will get a cutscene where your NPC will arrive, then the NM spawns. It's named "Metallic Slime" and was a pushover at lvl 62. After defeating him, target the ??? again to receive your Key Item: Vitrallum. Return this to Luto and she will then ask you to bring her back some water from a "spring with a surface as smooth as glass." The little girl, Palomita, or whatever her name is, shows up and tells a story that her father told her about what could be the two mirrors, but it gives little to no insight as to where the "spring" may be. Luto hints that water near the source is usually the clearest but I have no idea what to make of this. That's about all I have for now, so if anyone knows where to find this "spring," I'd greatly appreciate the help.

update: After running around thru every zone I can think of that has a lake, pond, or spring, I can now eliminate Maiden's Spring in Jugner Forrest, The Ephemere in La Theine, the Oasis' in both East and West Atelpa, and all of Ordelle's Cave from areas possibly having a "spring with a surface as smooth as glass." Really thought I had it with Jugner too, but it looks like the hunt is on again.

another update: Thanks to Techno's post, I was able to confirm that after entering Jugner Forrest thru the King's Tomb, there is a ??? on the ground that leads to a pretty interesting cutscene and the completion of the quest. As with the first one, the reward is the same, and Amangi was correct in stating that my interpretation of the reward was incorrect. Thank you both for straightening everything out and good luck to everone on the quest.

My NPC is level 30, and I got this quest, so the person who said it needs to be lvl 37 is mistaken. This was a very easy quest to do. But what I would like to know is this - how do you trigger the next quest? There's no indication of how to trigger it, so I would like to know if someone can share that.

in fact, i think Hariga-Origa should be replaced by Tosuka-Porika everywhere (giving the 6 items for instance)

This quest (I think) is a starting point for big change. I have done it. My npc is lvl 43 now and i also got a new one not included here in Allakhazam. But the point is. after doing that quest, when you ask your npc about quest at RP, she'll sometimes ask you to help her investigate some disturbance inside promyvion.
There is a rendez vous point inside at entrance and the quest is a search ???
The reward is a special pearl to call your npc 4 time, with a time reset of 10 min.
I think you can do that 1 time for each promyvion.

I hope it help!

My NPC has been called out maybe around 10 times, leveling it slowly to 32, and I've already been given the option to change weapons twice. After my last call, I finally got this quest to activate (before, Luto would always tell me "nothing new" when I spoke to her). Just so you know that the NPC doesn't have to be high level or have been called out too often before this quest becomes active.

If you're wondering where's the best place to buy this food: (price will reflect fame, mine is hero+. availability may reflect nationality and regional conquest. Right now Windy is in first and Sandy in last place; I'm Bastokan):

-loaf of white bread (can buy at Jeuno Marble Bridge restaurant for 200 gil. windy AH: 1100 gil)

- whitefish stew (can buy at Timbers Tavern for 6064 gil, windy AH: 4000 gil)

- windy salad (can buy at Timbers Tavern for 1711 gil or Jeuno Marble Bridge for 1860 gil. windy AH: 4000 gil)

- bison steak (windy AH: 30k gil, jeuno AH 25k)

Can i give my NPC a better weapon?
I don't mean another sort of weapon.
I want that she fights with Shield and Sword, but she is still using this Low Level Sword, which doesn't make much damage.
Some information

Just to offer my experience, once my NPC achieved level 34 I was able to choose whether he wore headgear or not. At level 35 I was able to get this quest from Luto. I check the Rendezvous Point and Luto following every exp session with my NPC. I haven’t finished this quest yet, but my guess about the reward “Your feel your bond of friendship strengthening with your fellow” is your NPC will probably stay and earn more exp per session.

My NPC is lvl 34 and I got the quest. I think it might have to do with how many times you used your NPC.

So why isnt Luto giving me this quest? Does my NPC need to be a certain level or what? No info about this is available, so Im just confused now >.<

The description above is incorrect. You don't give the food to "Hariga-Origa", you give it to "Tosuka-Porika".

I've sent in a correction.

How do you change npc's gear?

For reference, my NPC is currently level 38, and Iron Mask/Nothing is the only choice he gives me. I would guess that further quests will allow you to change the rest of his/her equipment ( I should hope so, my NPC switches between the level 11 Doublet and his starting RSE -_- ).

How do you change your npc's gear from iron mask to nothing? What is the process?

The piece that they wear I think varies by NPC race and gender or something. Mine's a female Elvaan who can use a circlet.

Anyways...To get the option, you need to have a pretty good friendship with your NPC which you can normally improve by calling them out and fighting with them for a session and etc.

You'll know you'll have gotten the option when the Change Apperance (Pre-Maintenance)/Talk About Armor >> Headgear (Post-Maintenance) is added onto your list from when you check the r.point.

As you see in the reward, it's a increase to the friendship.

I haven't done this quest yet, so I am wondering something. I saw someone with their NPC in Promyvion Holla the other day...does completing this quest allow you to bring your NPC into Promyvion...or is it something else?

according to what i have been told you can call this NPC to fight with you anywhere you have 5 or less people in your party, or when you are solo.

They expanded the areas an npc can be called to (I assume most dungeons) but there are still some areas you cannot call them to. I tried to call mine last night in a skill up pt in Ru'Aun Gardens and got the message that he could not be summoned to there.

am i right in in thinking that the bond between you and your npc effects if thisquest can be activated? i am currently unable to activate it, my npc is 34 but i used to throw the pearl to get a second one to exp faster but after reading that this lowers npc trust and thus gives less options at the rendezvous point i stopped tossing it. i can only assume this is why i cant flag the quest as i have hero fame all over vanadiel.

Just to let everyone know, this quest does not activate the use of headgear. I have the quest acive but have yet to complete it, but I can choose for my NPC to wear a green ribbon or not. I think everyone assumes this quest activates that because they didnt check for it before finishing the quest. Silly people XD

I decided to take the time and complete this yesterday morning. After completing it, I can choose my level 34 NPC to wear a circlet or nothing at all. From the sounds of the previous posts, it seems as if maybe we have the choice to let her wear headgear or not. Maybe more choices will be available when the NPC levels now that the option is open.

Not sure what all the "bond-strengthening" implies, but after completing this quest, I can change my NPC's headgear at the rendezvous point. I can now switch my lil' taru between an Iron Mask and nothing at all.

For reference, my NPC is currently level 38, and Iron Mask/Nothing is the only choice he gives me. I would guess that further quests will allow you to change the rest of his/her equipment ( I should hope so, my NPC switches between the level 11 Doublet and his starting RSE -_- ).
