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.

w00t just finished this. I went in as a 54WAR/MNK and when I fought the dragon it was easy as cake. I got from 1083hp to 663hp >_> but I didn't use my 2 hour or any other thing.

Go to the cathedral. Walk in the door. Turn left and go to the room at the end of the hall. Turn left in the room and Morjean will be around the corner :)

I'm a 69 drk. I didn't really care about any other jobs but one day decided to open the others. Needless to say, I make them all my personal whipping posts. I'm taking my mule (I have 2 systems) to unlock all it's advanced jobs and murdering the Dragon is gonna be fun. I'm curious as to how much I'm gonna shatter the record. I may even TP up and guillotine the hell out of it, then use an icarus wing and do it again, then use a tactical ring and do it again. May be dead before tactical ring powers up. But it'll be fun to try.

Ok, I couldn't help but laugh. I got the egg on the first strike when excavating. Maybe the field gear helped, I dunno, but still. Whoo. ^^

45 PLD solo'd

I recently soloed this as a level 45 PLD/WAR. I used Flash out of habit which was ineffecient since he wasn't hitting me for more than 20-25 apiece, and I used Berserk which honestly was pretty stupid.

300TP Seraph Blade did over 230 damage, and I ate a Mithkabob. Had to use 2-hour (Berserk was a bad call) and got out with 17 HP.

If you realized Berserk wasn't a good idea, you probably could have canceled it.

From my understanding, there's no order. I went straight to the Windurstian Consulate in Sandy right after I started the mission, got my orders, and since I was curious to be a DRG anyways, I started the flag quest. I was confused to hell since there was no cutscene talking to the first two guys in the cargo room, but when you go beneath the chateau, there is one, so it works. I did finish that part of the mission for Sandy, going up into Ghelsba, but I think you just have to talk to consulate and be told to talk to Halver in the Chateau and you're all set to run around in there all you want.
For those interested in soloing the Dragon
# Aug 16 2005 at 10:48 PM Rating: Decent
I just got done soloing the Dragon for the Dragoon quest as a 48 Rdm/Blm. I don't think you could solo it much lower lvl than this, if I had to make a guess by how things went for me, you could probably solo it as a 45 Rdm/Blm, but not much lower.

Now mind you, I wasn't going for record. Took me 8 min to beat him, which is about 8 times as long as it takes the record-breakers. I just wanted the quest done. Went in, Refresh'd, Prot III'd, Shell II'd, Blink'd and Stoneskin'd. I started with Shock, Frost, Blind, Paralyze, Slow, and Bio II. I used Enblizzard, but I don't think it matters which one you use, was doing max En-damage anyway. Had to recast Blink and Stoneskin quite a few times, and had to Refresh twice more after the initial. I didn't nuke at all, just smacked him around with an Enblizzard'd Buzzard Tuck.

So, take it for what it's worth, but a 48 Rdm/Blm can solo him with minimal risk.
Soloing the Dragon

I was able to solo the Dragon as 41 RDM/DRK. I went in fully buffed up, and used a Yagudo Drink, a Meat Mithkabob, and a potion +2. (I probably didn't need the potion, but I used it when I got below 100 health to be safe). Chainspell + Drain is your friend here, since the Dragon is weak against Dark. While Chainspell lasts you are effectively invincible, since you drain so much more life than you lose to damage. The only downside of the strategy is that I couldn't summon my wyvern right away, since I used my two-hour to beat Cyranuse.

I'm a level 30 Blm, Rank 2-3, and they won't let me into the Chataeu d'Oraguille... Anyone know what's wrong here?

I'm pretty sure you don't need any fame for any of the advanced job quests.

My fame was level 1 and I could start this quest.

To anyone wanting to decide their Dragon name before hand, here are the possible names to choose from

# Jul 31 2005 at 12:26 AM Rating: Decent
i just owned the dragon as a 53 BLM. I went in with staff skill 90 and full tp. I forgot to do any buffs which proved almost fatefull later. So i started off with ES Freeze and got him down to half health. then started swinging with my staff and did firaga 2 then WS then aeroga 2 then stone 3 and he was dead. I did need manafront since freeze took up so much mp. Im taru and he hit pretty hard got me down ro 24 health with special move but i cured. Anyone on carby who needs it just /tell scud ill be happy to solo it for you.

Just finished this quest. For the last stage I got help from a level 73 RDM and a /anon WHM (in AF Gear) Many thanks to Mahiro and Ampegathy! :) A warning to people thinking about trying this soon, due to the recently released fellowship quest using the same battlefield, you may have to wait in line. I had to wait about an hour for my turn :(.
Too weak

My friend (lvl 48 drk) and my self (lvl 41 whm) were bored so we decided to do this quest, when we went to the battle ground there was BCNM 20 or something going on and they got owned. Watching the fight was a lvl 75 blm, I asked what he was doing there, and he said the DRG quest. So we partied, when we got into the arena, I started to cast dia 2 and my friend started to draw his sword, this blm did elemental seal and some spell like thunder 4 or something, and killed it before I could cast dia. That was so amazing.

Be warned, the only people allowed into the final fight are people who are on this stage of the dragoon quest, or people who have completed the quest, so make sure everyone is so they can be let into the battleground.

I would just like to point out that this is not true. I received help with this fight from a high-lvl RDM who had not even started the DRG quest at the time. Therefore, it is my belief that anyone can help with this fight.

P.S.: I already submitted a correction, so don't flame. :p

It most certainly is true, that person must have been pulling your leg, i just did it last night, and my friend couldnt help because he didnt start drg.

I've been trying all week to do this quest. I was told you could get the egg from the point at the torongi cannyon zone into the maze. I tried 8 or 9 times and broke 3 pickaxes. Whats going on? Do I have to be in the maze?
