In-Game Text

Description

At (H-11) you will find a large ramp. Head to the top and inspect the Crystalline Field for a cutscene. This is the door to the Grand Palace of Hu'Xzoi. You and your companions are unable to open the door and must visit three locations in order to gain access to the palace within. It doesn't matter in what order you visit these areas, but the first Rubious Crystal you need to visit is directly south from the ramp you are standing on so you might as well head there first.

Checking the Rubious Crystal will spawn three NMs, all named Ru'Aern, so don't let anyone touch it if you aren't ready. These three are a Samurai, Warrior, and White Mage. You should be able to take down all three without much difficulty. Once they are dead touch the Rubious Crystal for a cutscene.

The other two Crystals are to the northwest and northeast. Head to one of these and kill three more Ru'Aern NMs at each spot, inspecting the Rubious Crystal after each set of mobs is dead. The eastern tower (L-10) will have Monk, Paladin, and Black Mage NMs. The western tower (D-10) will have Dark Knight, Ranger, and Red Mage NMs. There is an Auroral Updraft to the north of each of these towers and you can use these to return to the middle. It's a good shortcut to use after hitting the second tower in order to quickly skip across the map on the way to the third.

After you have viewed all three cutscenes at the Rubious Crystals, head back to the Crystalline Field to zone into the Grand Palace of Hu'Xzoi. Head straight to the end of the hall and check the Gate of the Gods for a final cutscene. Ulmia will give you a Tavnazian Ring, which will teleport you to Tavnazian Safehold and recharge every 24 hours.

The NMs are pretty easy.
Just sleep all 3 and kill 1 at a time.

They only sleep if you stack Elemental Seal on it.

This can be easily handled with any decent party, exp setup works fine. Never forget though, the more the merrier.
