Contents [hide]


Excavate the wyvern egg that lies beneath the Maze of Shakhrami. Protect it from the dragonslayers.


NOTE: You need to be able to get into the Chateau d'Oraguille. You must be Rank 2 if you live in San d'Oria, or on the Rank 2-3 Mission or Rank 3 or higher for other nations.

Go to Cargo Room A in Port San d'Oria and talk to Arminibit and Ceraulian. Then go to Bostaunieux Oubliette (the prison beneath Chateau d'Oraguille) and talk to Novalmauge. Then go to the Northwest room in the Cathedral and talk to Morjean. Oiheaurese will appear during the cutscene and ask you to bring back an egg.

Buy a pickaxe (more than one to be safe) and head for the Maze of Shakhrami. Look for the excavation point at (G-7), (I-8), or (K-7) and start excavating until you get a Wyvern Egg. Once you find one, go back and talk to Morjean. Yachemidot will appear and offer you an option to hatch the egg.

Yachemidot sends you on a new quest. In Meriphataud Mountains, at the eastern edge of Doragora's Spine is a ??? at (K-8). You'll have to travel around the north side of it and curve around. Trade the egg to it and you will trigger an event. Go back to San d'Oria and talk to Rahal in the Chateau in the Royal Knight's Quarters. The Royal Knight's Quarters is on the left as you enter the Chateau, it takes up the majority of (H-9). Rahal will then give you a key item: Dragon Curse Remedy.

After that, you need to travel to Ghelsba Outpost. At (G-10) you will find a hut with a hidden door. Open this by forcing the lock, which will trigger a cutscene with a dragon named Cyranuce M Cutauleon. Defeat the dragon. You will then be able to name your wyvern and will be flagged to change to the Dragoon job.

I'm in quite a conundrum. I'm trying to get the quest started and I happen to be the appropriate level and at the appropriate rank, yet Cerulian will not give me the quest. Can anyone help?
# Mar 24 2009 at 8:07 PM Rating: Decent
Hmmm. Did you find Mojean, in Northrn Sandy's Cathedral? I remember having to talk to him. :/ He's the first door on the, left, I wanna say.Behind the wall, by the bookshelf. But the main guy is in Port Sandy...Cargo rooms. You also need to talk to the Vampire in Bost-whatitsname, underneath the Chateau. It's been so long since I did this quest, lmao, the first job I unlocked as a matter of fact. If it helps any, you're welcome, and if it doesn't, I apologise.

Talk to Armibit, I believe is who you have to talk to first then, Cer-whatshisname. @_@ My bad. ^^;
# Feb 16 2010 at 4:37 PM Rating: Decent
When you talk to the Cerulean, listen to their conversation. They don't actually give you the quest, but once you've heard the conversation, you have to go talk to Novalmauge (the drain quest guy) in Bostoneaux Obiulette to start the actual quest.

Just soloed this as a level 53 SMN. Used one Carby. Buffed self with Blink, Aquaveil, Protect and Shell; summoned Carby and used Shining Ruby. Cast Dia on the dragon, Carby took hate in two hits or so (I took no damage), used Slow and Paralyze (both stuck); waited a bit and then helped fight from behind (to avoid breath attacks etc). Used Poison Claw a few times and Glittering Ruby once (more for fun than anything), got staff skill-ups and won no problem; 500+ MP and Carby had about 25-20% hp. Yaaay. /dance :D

Ok, i just did this a few hours ago as a 52 blm/26 whm and its not as hard as many people are making it sound.

freeze- (if your feeling gutsy, since it takes so long to cast)
blizzard II-
after that, if your bind isnt back, elemental seal, sleep II.
and to make that fast and effective use this macro for it..

/ja "elemental seal" <me>
/wait 3
/ma "sleep II" <t>

wait for bind an when its back, bind him again, or wait for the sleep to wear off. Your choice.

PS- if your using one of the mage classes that arent meant for soloing, id use a mage class 50+

No Level Cap??

So I'm guessing there's no level cap on the dragon? So, what level would you say would be good enough to solo him as a BLU/NIN??? I am currently a 30BLU/15NIN.

Another question I had is where is the best spot to mine for the wyvrn egg? I pretty much just started this quest (17/20 Jobs obtained, working on DRK, DRG, and SAM).
No Level Cap??

No cap, I'd say you could beat it with lvl 30 Blu /nin but might take a bit of effort. The Dragon is about level 40ish. I persoanlly would wait till at least 35 to try. But thats just me.

Any excavation spot in Shakrami will be fine.

I was helping a level 30 friend do this quest(i myself was a lvl 40 drg at the time) decided i was going to give soloing the dragon a shot, unfortunately i only had rdm lvled to 16 but did it anyways. ended up kicking the dragons **** (on firesday) and the only item i used was a tav. taco. my lvl 30 friend sat and watched :)

I soloed it (except the dragon) As a 30 War/15 Mnk. Depending on where you end up excavating the egg in Shakhrami there's no real fighting at all other than the Dragon.

redoing the boss
# Jun 27 2008 at 7:47 AM Rating: Decent
Hey, I know Ive seen it before but I seem to be having trouble finding it now. There was a requirment to be able to redo the boss fight. I tried to go with my brother and solo it for him as a 75 smn and it wouldn't let me in.
I have dragoon unlocked, so what is required to be able to redo this boss fight? Thank you in advance for your time.
Soloed as 37war/18mnk
# May 24 2008 at 8:13 PM Rating: Decent
I'm a returning player to ffxi. I decided to solo this dragon as a 37war/18mnk. I was not sure what to expect as it has been a few years since I unlocked drg. I purchased an icarus wing, 9 Hi-potion +3(they were 500 more than the hi-potion), 6 hi-potions and a Persikos Au Lait. I used rice dumpling as my food. Gear was Horror Voulge, Spike Necklace, 2 shield earrings, brass grip +1, Royal squire mufflers, Eisenbrust, Republic subligar, Eisenschuhs, nomad's mantle, centurion's visor, brave belt, venerer ring, and puissance ring. I am a galka so my HP with rice dumping and 2 shield earrings was 873. Defense was 151 and attack was 221. Had capped evasion and only +3 evasion from nomad's mantle.

Ate the dumpling and rested up before entering. Once in the battle, I popped my au lait. Engaged and when the dragon started to move I used Dodge. Before dodge wore off he attacked 31 times. He missed me 14 times and I got in 2 counters. After dodge was gone, he attacked 26 times. Missed 5 times, 3 counters and one parry. Damage taken was around 35-50 with crits approaching 90. Used chaos breath 3 times with varying damage. The first one was for 431 damage. After that I thought I could not win. However, the other 2 were for 163 and 280. Deadly drive was for a pathetic 68. Used all my potions but I did not touch mighty strikes or the icarus wing. Cleared the fight in 4:46 and ended up with 346hp to spare. Only used sturmwind twice and ended the fight with 99tp.

I added my damage up to be 2249. My HP lost: 2677.

Very long quest
# Feb 09 2008 at 12:08 AM Rating: Decent
I followed the quest to a T but the actual mining point are different. If you dont know there are different floors or levels in the maze. all the mining points for the egg are on the same floor as when you walk in. you might get lucky and just find the mining point right when you walk in. but for me it was the very last place i checked that had the mining point. it only spawns on or by the dino bones in the maze area. the maze it self is plit into different areas. so when you try to run straight to the far east area you will actually have to go down a level then back up. I went in as a 36whm/blm for warp and teleport when i finished. i only mined once and got the egg on first try. i did spend 1 hour running around looking for the spawn points though. certain points of the map you can only go one way and then you cant come back. so after the egg i did the other parts. i had a level 75 mnk help me kill the dragon once i was that far into quest he did all the work while i stood back to watch and now i am a dragoon
# Feb 03 2008 at 6:17 PM Rating: Decent
me as a DRG49/BLM and i pwned it in like under 1:30 mins lawl there was also a full drop it was so great i buffed up with ice spikes then i went into attack him (i did this with my my 30 but i was the only one fighting he was helping healing me) i got him to 1/2 health then i was at like 2/3 health then slept him and used 2 potions then used my 2hr and then used double thrust and did 270ish then hit him like 5 more times and raped him it was great
egg position
# Jan 16 2008 at 5:53 AM Rating: Decent
Just mined egg from the Buburimu entrance side. Excavation point was in the dragon skeletal remains. Note that the Buburimu entrance area is isolated from the canyon's entrance area by drop downs. So you can access the Buburima side from the Canyon side, just not vice-versa.

wtf are you talking about?
# Dec 02 2007 at 12:47 PM Rating: Good
wtf are you smoking? WAR/WHM is a noob combo that i laugh XD RDM/NIN can solo a hell lot more than your wimpy WAR/WHM. Have you ever seen a RDM/NIN in action? I've seen a WAR/WHM in action and it's absolutely hilarious
wtf are you talking about?
# Jan 03 2008 at 9:13 AM Rating: Decent
um....40RDM/20WHM, not WAR/WHM. sorry and i have never seen RDM/NIN in action. i was only offering to help anyone.
# Nov 26 2007 at 9:11 PM Rating: Decent
If anyone would like to do this quest, hit me up. I am Jayman on Leviathan. If you are interested in being a Dragoon I will be happy to turn around and do the quest with you if you will help me first. 40RDM/20WHM. Full Custom Armor! Maybe higher by the time we begin this quest.
can i do it?
# Nov 24 2007 at 9:45 PM Rating: Decent

I just walked my friend through this entire Quest, got up to Ghelsba Outpost and watched him enter the BC without me in it. I would try to select the Hut Door to enter the BC, but it wouldn't let me in. Am I missing something? Do I have to be on The Holy Crest to fight the Dragon with him?
