Summary

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

Walkthrough

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.

52 War/Mnk or 52 War/Thf, take your pick...I can go as either...hell once Drk is to 25 in a bit I could go as /Drk if that made any sense, which it probably wouldn't until 60 when soul eater comes into the picture.

I'd likely choose /MNK because of higher VIT and STR and the fact that, were I to solo this...SA/STurmwind would be useless since it's attention would be on me the entire time. Also, over 100 higher HP with /Mnk. I might do /Nin but I have the Utsusemi quest, just have yet to FIND the thing.

But, if it's anything like the SAM quest, which I helped someone else with, as far as the toughness of the mobs, soloing shouldnt be a problem since we brought a 60 Drk, a 40 Drk, me (52 War/at the time, 19 Thf), 33 Blm, 60+ Whm and 54 Drg...after doing SAM quest (not for myself, dammit)...I saw that I could EASILY solo that one. So, I'm hoping Drg is as unreasonably feared as SAM.

1100 HP...76 Str fully equipped (at only 52 mind you)...more with food...Gigant and soon to be Executioner great axe weilding...+ in all of the main WAR areas...Str, Dex, Vit, and agi...so...you think I can solo it? That's with /Mnk. With /Thf the stats are...considerably lower at this lvl in some areas, particularly HP.

50 BLM can solo
# Mar 03 2005 at 7:23 PM Rating: Decent
I just did this today and he was pretty easy. I went in and cast Bio2 then bind and nuke till unbound, then bind again, then repeat. I brought some hi-potions with me but didnt use them. I ran out of MP when he had about 1/8 health left so I used manafont and finished him off. The only help I had was my buddy cast Protect2 and Shell2 on me before I went in but I dont think i really needed it. I was 50 BLM/25 WHM. Funny thing was that I was just about to use a potion cuz i was down to about 40% health and then he just fell over dead from Bio. I didnt even get to deliver the finishing blow :(

Did this as 50 DRK /25 RDM. Used Blink, Blaze Spikes, Regen, Enfire, no food, and Protect. Dragon did not stand a chance. Cleared in
3min 42sec. Only had to CureII 3 times and used Drain a couple of times. Here's how it went:

1: Buffed up as soon as i entered
2: Hit dragon with Bio II
3: Opened fight with Souleater, Last Resort, Vorpal Scythe ( clicked off abilities as soon as i got the hit in so my def was back up )
4: By this time blink was almost gone so cast it again
5: Meleed for about a min
6: TP was at 107% so used Nightmare Scythe cause dragons are weak to Darkness
7: Cure II
8: Drain
9: Ranged Attack with Bloody Bolt ( HP @ 100% )
10: Recast Blink
11: Meleed for another min
12: Nightmare Scythe again
13: Cure II
14: Drain
15: Ranged Attack with Bloddy Bolt ( HP @ 80% )
16: One last hit and dragon went down

Sounds like alot, but it really went by fast. Had macros set up pretty good, so things went very smoothe. Very fun and exciting fight to solo. Thinking about doing it again, just for fun!! GL all you aspiring Dragoons.

Well ok, I'm not gonna say this quest was easy, because it's prob not if you're trying it at lvl 30. But if you get a lvl 55+ you should be able to do everything in this quest pretty easily, from finding the egg to killing the dragon. Im a 56 taru blm (mentioned taru because I have less than 600 hp) but the dragon when I had protect II on did around 30 dmg each hit, when it hit.

All I'm really saying is that it's fine to solo this thing at lvl 50+ w/ probably any job. I had fun fighting it.
So easy
# Feb 10 2005 at 1:19 PM Rating: Decent
I just did this quest on the 8th easy as pie all i did was cast a few spells as Obakeken (49 SAM) in my linkshell essentially soloed it for me. The gut hardly ever got hit.

A question: The DRG forum lists the Norg 1, 2, and 3 extra name lists. I know I've read about these before but for the life of me I can't find the info >.>

How do you get the extra name choices?

Thanks ^^

As a THF55/NIN, I had NO trouble soloing this mob. If I hadn't been lazy and cheap with my shihei, I wouldn't have gotten hit once.

Our Method
# Jan 02 2005 at 11:36 PM Rating: Default
We did this last week (01/01/05).

Warrior/Thief (30/15)
Warrior/Monk (30/15)
Thief/Warrior (30/15)
White Mage/Black Mage (30/15)
Black mage/White Mage (30/15)

1.) All the melee had 300% TP at start
2.) got whm buffs and waited for both casters to have full mana
3.) We entered the fight (keeping TP) and ate stat food. Yagudo Drink for the Whm. Melon Pie for the Blm. kabobs for the melee.
4.) Reraise on Whm. Regen on war/thief.
5.) war/thief attacked.
6.) Regen on war/monk.
7.) thie/war & war/monk attack
8.) SATA by the Thief
9.) Provoke by war/monk and then mighty strikes from war/monk
10.) Blm debuffed (slow, rasp, drown, frost, blind, bio) slow was resisted.
11.) Mighty Strikes wore off. Fire Fire/Light weapon chain. Dodge and Defender used by war/monk. Dragon used breath weapon on War/Monk. Blm and Whm heal and war/monk used healing potion. the breath weapon did 444 damage. Dragon is at 70% life.
12.) DPS DPS DPS. Blm Ga spells.
13.) Whm and Blm use Hi Ether at some point.
14.) Manafont used.
15.) Breath weapon used again. 240 damage to war/monk.
16.) Raging Claw used by Dragon on war/monk for 114.
17.) Dragon dead.

No one died but the war/monk got very close when the first breath weapon went off. I believe he was down to 22hp before. Benediction was never needed.

Won this fight solo as 68 SAM.

Went in with 240% TP and food. Expected him to be somewhat of a challenge. Fortunately:

Tachi: Jinpu
Meikyo Shisui
Tachi: Gekko
Skillchain: Detonation
Tachi: Yukikaze

And the fight was over. Broke the cleartime record, too. :P
