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.

just done this quest as 45PLD/war and 30 WHM, went in buffed up, debuffed drag, just kept hitting in and WHM healed me, she even got a few bainsh 2 off for around 100 dmg each, was quite an easy fight even if it was long ><

I soloed this fight as a BLM52/WHM26. The dragon can definitely pack a punch for a BLM! If it weren't for Manafont, I likely would have lost the battle.

I was just looking at the posts here yesterday, and I noticed alot of RDM's that have soloed this guy. And I thought to myself, "Hmmm, if a RDM can do it, then itll be easy for me....." No offense to the RDM's out there ;), I can just do more than you can when I got whm subbed on my war, and no offense but I can do better than RDM's 6 levels higher than me. (Like I said no offense ;), you guys arent made for soloing, so please take no offense, cuz Im not meaning any by this :).

So anyways, I decided I was going after this guy. The hardest part of this whole quest was finding the Excavation Point in the Maze. I spent a good hour wondering around the Maze looking for it. But when I did I got it on my first attempt :), and I was extremely happy, cuz I was about to break my controller over the Excavation Point.

But after doing all the rest I finally got my chance to fight this guy. I went up buffed, ran in popped my food, and proceeded to beat on this guy.

This guy was a chump, it took him half the fight to even waste my Blink. He did 1 crit hit for 60, and his Special Attacks never did more than 35 hps of damage on me, otherwise he was only hitting me for 2-20 hp of damage.

I shoulda just brought attack food instead of defensive food, cuz this guy didnt even come close to taking 1/4 of my life. But he does have pretty good def, I was only hitting him for 30-40 each time, and thats 5-10 less than I do in pts and 15-20 when I solo. If I had bought attack food this fight woulda been done at least a minute sooner than it was.

It took me 5 mins and some change, but it was worth it. Except for the fact that there arent that good of names on this list for my little Dragon, I was very disappointed in that. But this is extremely soloable at 52, and Id say that at least a 48 War/whm could solo this with a fairly good outcome, maybe a few levels lower.

By the way the record on my server is 49 seconds. Which I coulda beat if I had a 4 min head start :P

Dude you are a moron smn,thf,rdm,and sometimes blu are the best soloers hands down. From what I have expierienced even pld is a better combo with rdm than your stupid war/whm. Don't bash and keep saying no offense when you have no clue what you are talking about.
# Jul 21 2007 at 9:20 AM Rating: Decent
WHM/BLM weren't exactly built for soloing, but you can't say that about RDM.

Dude you're an idiot. RDM/NIN could whoop your *** soloing.
I will wake up at six a.m. again.
and I will find my way to the front door
like a soldier crawling through the smoking carnage.
smoldering bodies at my feet,
I'd love to stick around, but I've got someone to meet.
and I will put my best foot forward.
and I'll thank god I made it out of there
on the day when my new friends come.

just thought i'd let you know rdm is second best soloer in the entire game, next to thf of course at 74+
And I was nervous...

31WAR/15NIN with a friend who was 39PLD/19THF. We did SAM quest together the night before with a party from our LS. We did all the running around needed, and went up to face the dragon. We weren't sure what we were gonna face, so we built TP to attack this thing, and hoped we'd make it out alive, at least.

Got some nice screenshots, especially one where I hit him with Sturmwind.

We didn't set any records, but 5 minutes into the fight, the dragon went down. I just wish I had time this week to lvl my new DRG.

Dragon has approx. 2100 hp. RDM should be able to solo it at 38+ with any sub as long as they can land Gravity. I did it at 69, 7 Blizzard IIs for 304 dmg each and it went down. If you try it low, just make sure you don't let it touch you - bind kiting is easy and the great thing is it's wind based so weak to ice.
where is excavation point?
# Nov 28 2006 at 10:54 PM Rating: Decent
help! i entered the maze from the canyon and went to G-7 like the thing says, but there was no excavation point there. does the spot you need change? if i just go back will it be there? tried to get to other excavation point (as 30nin/15thf) got aggro'd by a couple jelly's and died.

DRG fight
# Oct 11 2006 at 3:43 PM Rating: Default
Just went in as BLM60/WHM.

Used a melon pie, put up stoneskin + blink. Went in, Ele seal bound him, casted Burst on him. 1052 pts of damage. 51% life. He became unbound when I was casting, but blink took the hits. After that, casted Aero III, bind still wasn't up again. Took 522 pts of damage. Casted bind, ran off, casted Water III, Stone III. Dead.

People make this fight too big of a deal. To BLM's who fight it- don't even try to sleep him. Go for bind, and nuke the **** out of him.

Ok I got a 75 pld to help me fight the dragon, but when I clicked on the hut and entered, he was still outside and couldn't get in... I had to use my two hour and barely damamged the dragon before getting killed and delvling to 29. I hope this isnt a stupid question, but how do I make sure the pld will be able to enter the hut next time? If he hasn't done the quest yet, does that affect him being able to enter the hut??
# Sep 17 2006 at 2:31 PM Rating: Decent
Hey there Daiisuke!

This is kind of a late reply, but it does in fact matter if your pld friend did this quest or not. The same thing happened to a friend of mine; he invited someone to help him, only to find out that person couldn't enter, simply because he had never done that quest himself before (my friend too, died as a result, heheh).
So, make sure you bring someone who is either at the same stage as you in the quest, or someone who has already completed it.

Good Luck! :-)

Could a rdm42/blm21 be able to solo the dragon if i went in with Stoneskin Phalanx blink Protect II and Shell II? also would i need any foods or juices

So I am a WAR/MNK lvl.30 now but my rank is still 2. Are the missions to get to rank 3 hard? Because I want to do the DRG quest ASAP XD. Also the guide for the quest doesn't seem to clear it keeps telling you all these random places to go and these people to see but they never even mentioned them earlier, somebody help me out please.

I finally finished the quest about two days ago. I had help from my friend Joe whose a Lvl 75 THF. And the battle lasted all of 2 min 47 seconds, he allowed me the finishing blow. When I got out and finished the CS, I got the text at the bottom sayin we set the record for out server (Siren). We were both like "hey that's cool". Next is to finish my SMN quest go to Windy to get my Ranger and take the time to do the rest...heh yeah right.

I thought what the heck. I have all the jobs,but DRG and SAM might as well go ahead and see how bad this is to solo. I went as 45RDM/PLD. Chose PLD for sub for the extra WS and a little def buff. Since I really had no clue how hard he was going to hit I made some Steamed crab. Took a HIGH potion +1 and an High Either. When I zoned in I put up Phalanex and stone skin. At the steamed crab. Which gave me a DEF of 243. Put up ICE SPIKES and EN-Blizzard. Charged into him. Casted a few Aero II's at him and watched his health just drop. Fight lasted 5min 14sec. He hit me for around 40dmg and did Chaos Breath once for 111dmg. So for all the BLUS yes he does use chaos breath. All togather was not really a bad fight at all. Not what I was expecting. Now off to open SAM. hehehe

I had put this quest on the back burner for quite a while. I unlocked a bunch of jobs, but didn't feel anything special when the quest was done. It was just another quest. However, watching Cyranus slice my little wyvern hurt a bit. So I head back to fight the dragon, change my sub to NIN. RDM46/NIN14, first time I got to try this combo. Went to Ghelsba and watched my friend, a BLM60, nuke the crap out of the dragon, but he wasn't there to help me. I was determined to solo it. I popped a mithkabob (I just happened to have one on me), refresh'd, Ice Spikes, SS, phalanx, regen'd, and put my shadows up. Pulled the dragon with Slow, cast Dia II, and started melee'ing. Had a Buzzard Tuck and Flame Degen and just kept swinging on him. Damage was about 25-30 a swing when I realized I forgot my enspell. Popped enblizzard and kept going. I didn't nuke at all, I slacked a lot on my Refresh, and didn't even keep my enfeebs up. All I focused on was keeping my shadows and SS up. I only got hit hard once for about 125dmg. Clear time was just under 7 mins and I felt totally accomplished since that was my first "big" solo fight. My mp was about half when I was done, and my hp was approx 506/714. Good luck to anyone that tries this solo, and if you need help on phoenix server, /t Sueme, and I'll be more than happy to go along.

BTW, I had my elvaan RSE on, a balance ring, reflex ring, 2 silver earrings +1, traveler's mantle and heko obi +1, maybe a silver hairpin, but I can't remember.
pt or not against dragon?

Soloed this as a 60WHM/30DRG for a 30BLM. I told the BLM to stand back and let met kill it. Stoneskin, haste and that was that. BLM didn't even have to do anything, though he did a stone II right at the end to have the finishing blow lol.
