There are reports that the Cat Burglar has her paws on a "Book of the Gods," a restricted book that was lost twenty years ago. Assist the Opistery in investigating the reports, and attempt to retrieve the priceless, but dangerous, tome.
First talk to Tosuka-Porika in the Optistery at (G-8) in Windurst Waters to begin this quest. Outside the Optistery and down some stairs is Tonana, who will warp you to Windurst Woods. Talk to Nanaa Mihgo and she will give you the key item: Lapis Monocle. It is highly recommended that you have the Map of the Maze of Shakhrami before doing this mission. It can be purchased from Mhoji Roccoruh or Pehki Machumaht. Unless your group intends to fight their way to the spot, you should bring a method of Sneak and Invisible for yourself.
Head to the Maze of Shakhrami, which can be found at the very Northeast corner of Tahrongi Canyon (K-5). Once inside, go down the tunnel until you reach a large room. This first room has bones, worms, and goblins. The worms are not aggressive. Take the tunnel to the left. You will reach another large room. This room has worms, goblins, and scorpions. The goblins and scorpions are aggressive.
Follow the left wall until you come to two tunnels and take the one on the right (G-6). You will reach a small opening, again stay to the left. The next room you reach is the room you seek (H-5). There are several Fossil Rocks in this room. Examine each one until you acquire the key item: Lapis Coral. You will need to drop Invisible in order to examine the Fossil Rock and obtain the key item.
Head back to Nanaa Mihgo in Windurst Woods (J-3). She will give you the key item: Hideout Key and direct you to the Inner Horutoto Ruins. It is highly recommended that you have Map of Horutoto Ruins for this area before proceeding. It is obtained by completing the quest Glyph Hanger.
Enter the Inner Horutoto Ruins through the Lily Tower at (J-7) in East Sarutabaruta. Once inside, go through the Cracked Wall at (G-8). You go to a new map at this point. Go through the Mahogany Door (G-7). NOTE: the Mahogany Door is not actually at these coordinates. In fact, it is not on the map at all. But at these coordinates you will find the hallway that leads to the Mahogany Door.
