Mimeo Stones?Follow

#1 Jan 04 2005 at 1:50 PM Rating: Decent
I read on the posts under the Attawa Chasm that a person can get the key item of a Mimeo Stone. It's light shines towards the top of the Volcano and fades with in 5-10 minutes. At the top of the Volcano is "The Cradle of Rebirth".

Does anyone know what this is for? The posts speculate a fight with Pheonix, however I'm curious to know if anyone has made it up to the top yet w/ the mimeo stone.

Any additional information on this would be great.

It's part of Promathia chapter 3.3, mission 11.

Basically you take the Mimeo stone (I think it might actually be an egg) to the top of the mountain for another key item. The key item is required to continue the storyline for the missions.

Climbing the mountain is difficult because the ledges are very narrow.

I may be somewhat slow and dense in the head, but it took me and my wife about 45 minutes to find our way up to the top of the hill.

Heck, the Mimeo Stone I'd found (not knowing what it was) faded before we even managed to find our way to the base of the hill to start our ascent.

I suspect this thing takes a fair amount of practice to learn the right path up the hill, and to do it quickly enough, before one is able to do it with the stone in the time allotted

    i found the ??? that gives out the mimeo stone before doing the mission. the stone from the random ??? fades far faster than the one from killing the antlion. i think you get about an hour from the mission one, which is plenty of time to get up the mountain. if you know exactly which ways to go and don't fall, you can get to the top before the first warning. i don't exactly remember the way up, but i think it was counterclockwise until you got pretty close to the top, then you drop and then go clockwise. don't remember too well, it was late and i was very aggrivated from falling several times.

    Ahhhh, thank you for that most interesting and helpful bit of information!
    That would make all the difference in the world.
    Honestly, I thought I was going to have to learn how to fly in order to be able to get up that hill in less than 10 minutes.

    I didn`t know there was a random popping ??? too, the NM fight is easy anyway. When I did it, it took me like 2 hours to get to the top because I managed to overlook the right way and kept going in circles -.-

    Well, my wife and I had just gone out exploring last week, the first night we had CoP, and while we were out there, I found a ??? on the ground, clicked it, and got this Mimeo Stone key item, which, as previously stated, fades and dissapears in about 10 minutes.

    I had read about a battle with an antlion, somewhere, but didn't make the connection.

    The path up the mountain is fairly simple. I found it my first try just by simply aiming up. If I got stuck, drop down to a new path below and continue. The general direction for most of the path should be counter-clockwise. Near the end you'll start going clockwise. There will be gases that you'll have to wait out (like the flame spouts in Ifrit's), but there are also gases that are permanent and will not disappear (my theory is the pitch black gases are the ones that stay).

    I wonder if the two stones are related, or if the random ??? is for something else. I've tried multiple times, but w/out flee i can only get about halfway up before the stone dies out.

    The only way I've found to get to the top is to enter either from the south or east side of the Torr and work my way counter-clockwise (clockwise would be much shorter, but haven't found the path yet).

    for those that have gotten to the top. what is the position of where you switch from counter-clock to clockwise, as well as crest the top. It seems like i have gone around in circles and must have missed something obvious.

    So frustrating >:(

    I'm on this CoP Mission, decided to solo the Antlion for the Mimeo Stone (Which, even as 73 BLM was somewhat tricky, because you can get him down to || HP and he will just run back to his spawn point and regain full HP... (You need to time Sleep, Bind, and Stun... With almost 1000 MP this thing brought me down to under 100, even after resting when I slept it. I recommend a party or a bunch of friends to help kill this when you bind it!)

    if anyone can help out more than "go counterclockwise" etc that'd be great cuz I have to get to the top before the stone dies out, of course. Thanks~
