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.

This quest was really fun^^ I liked the storyline, one thing that I didn't like about it is traveling from place to place, was kinda boring. After, when I was ready to kill the Dragon(RDM58/BLM29) I saw that the record was 1 minute and 15 seconds so I decided to Nuke the hell outta it with blizzard II+Ice Staff+Chainspell...took only 2 min though >.<

Oh well, it was fun^^
event skipped

i have problem to get my egg. It said always "event skipped" when i use pickaxe on excavation point and i don't know why. My inventory isn't full so i don't understand. If someone know what i must do..

The only reason that I think that happens is if you're being attacked by a monster...

I did this quest and i have found that it is the best of all of the adv job quests as it has its own story behind it and you reallly feel part of it.

On a side note.. i dont know how rare the wyvern egg is but me and my friend (jutfox) went into the maze.. we each got it on the 1st try and left. took us about 10mins to get the egg in total.
One thing i will warn you about... do not do this quest with no gil because the travel costs are stupid.. some choco's can go inot the 900's.

Other than that.. this quest is just amzaing... and you get to kill a dragon gotta be the koolest quest on here

The NM Cyranuce C Whatever is a total pushover. Just did it as a 58 WAR/NIN solo.

Fight finished in 2 mins, 48 seconds. Used meatkabob, berserk, cast utsusemi twice, then Rampage to polish him off. No great shakes.

I named my wyvern Wuffi xD

I did this today as a Lv.61 Sam.. the DRG was hitting me for 8-12 points of damage all 4 times it hit me. Not hard at all, infact I could have beat the record if I had just two houred and not waited for Medi to build my TP back up. The Guide is really dead on. The Mining point @ G-7 is the fastest to get to. It's right next to some bones in the G-7 block.
Doing this on Odin...

I'll be starting this quest on Odin tomorrow. If anyone wants to help, contact Luthe.

Thanks!

Update:

Completed this quest easily with the help of a very kind 55DRG. Thanks!

A couple notes:

1. The wyvern egg is available at /any/ excavation point in the maze, not just at the locations mentioned in the quest info. I got mine just running around the second big room on the top floor target spamming until I found an excavation point.

2. The final fight was easily solod by the 55DRG, and judging by the damage being done on either side, could possibly be soloed as low as 45, and easily done with a group of 35's and up.

I completed this quest. So happy too. If someone really wants to know how I did it I guess I'll tell them...

Well, as soon as I got my lazy butt to WAR 30 I asked if my LS would help me. They said they couldn't help me physically but they could tell me what to do. After about an hour my stupid brain clicked and I realized I wasn't finished with my Rank 2/3 mission: Emmissary (however you spell that...) and that if you are on your 2/3 mission you're allowed into the obliette so long as you are on that part in mission 2/3. SO, I took a ship to Mhauru from Selbina (obviously). Heh, on my way someone asked me if I was going to be a DRG. I said yes then got trash talked all the way to Mhauru (guess they don't like DRG... well :P).

After talking to the Bastokan consolate in Windurst about how I gave the knife to the Yagudo he told me to go to Sandy. I talked to the Bastokan consolate over there and he told me I could go in. Spent three days runnning around the entire world. First, I did a lot of talking to ppl to start the quest. Then, I bought 1 pickaxe... then I was worried I didn't have enough, so I bought a stack of them. Heh, figured this would happen but the first excavation point I clicked on gave me the egg. All the while kicking myself for spending 3k gil on sheer stupidity I ran back to Sandy to tell the guy I found the egg. I traded it with the ??? and saw the cinema (cool!). I was so pissed when he hurt the Wyvern! MY WYVERN! (SMITE! SMITE!). Blah blah I talked to the guy and he told me to go to Ghelsba Outpost. Well I spammed like crazy in Sandy for a high level DRG to help me. Not too long after did I find a lvl 53 DRG willing to help me. His name is Ryx, nice guy. Well he basically soloed it and whooped up on it for about 2 mins or so. Then I became a DRG. Fin.

This quest isn't as hard as people made it out to be. Although for the amount of work you put in it should be called a Mission. :P

WHM Can "Jump"
# Nov 24 2004 at 1:25 PM Rating: Excellent
I did this as a WHM59/BLM29
A DRG61 was helping me out, making sure I was doing everything in order. On his way to Sandy to pick me up for the final battle, I fell asleep while he was on the airship. So when I woke up in the A.M. I was still in pt with him but he was afk probably sleeping (I'm so sorry!! ;;) Anyhoo, I figured I mine aswell try it.
Got to the battle scene, my armor my AF, my sword, my Dark Staff :P I was preped for death, or else defeating it.
Prior to getting in, I Protect3 Shell3, Stoneskin and Blink (just to be safe)
The battle was a complete success. I slow'd and para'd him every time and it stuck every time. I kept blink and stoneskin on despite the fact that he was rarely hitting me and when he did it was for like 15hp a piece. Besides 2 Banish2's, a Stone2 and keeping Rasp on him, I didn't do anything else but whack him down with my trusty staff.
Well that's my story. Me and Ember are doing dandy :P

P.S. Thanks Iegluas, and so sorry!!

I got a quest named "The Holy Crest" from "Oiheaurese (Cathedral, Northern San d'Oria)" and he wants me to "Excavate the wyvern eg that lies beneath the Maze of Shakhrami. Protect it from dragonslayers."

So I went to Shakhrami and got the get. Came back to San d'Oria. I couldn't find Oiheaurese (not even on Widescan) and Arminbit keeps telling me "Hey! There're some thigs best left unheard, stranger. I trust you will be leaving... Now!"

So what do I need to do?

I just finished soloing this quest as a 50 blm/ 25 whm. Went in with my normal gear, plus protect, shell, aquaveil, blink, ice spikes, regen, and I ate an apple pie (i forgot the Yagudo drink). Anyways the fight wasn't too hard. Just chain nuked him (started out with freeze which messed him up), eventually i had to manafont, divine seal and cure 3. Then a elemental seal thunder 2 finished him off.

Barely dropped into the red before cure 3 went off and then it was basically over. Took me like 2 minutes 20 seconds. Not too hard.

Excavation Points

Okay, I just spent 4hrs trying to find the stupid egg. Why is it that I cannot get the pickaxe to work at any excavation point?

Your bag was probably full. You have to have at least 2 spaces available: one for the egg, and one for the pickaxe (which comes out of the stack when you use it).

Are you using the right command to use it? or are you just having problems with it breaking or what?
maze hint
# Oct 30 2004 at 9:59 AM Rating: Decent
just so noone gets confused, enter the maze through Tahrongi Canyon and not from the pennisala. I was wondering why everyone was saying when they went in everything was TW, while everything was agroing me.

Hi, just got done soloing this.
Bard level 61 with whm subbed. Stoneskin was great. Even his aoe didn't touch me.

And because this wasn't listed: you can bring your buffs with you inside. So buff up before you go in.

Enjoy!

I found there are a lot of "can i solo this?" questions here.
I killed the big dragon guy as a lvl 37whm with a 40drk friend. Quite frankly, it wouldn't surprise me if any 40+ melee job could solo this. I stood back all ready to cure my drk, but got so bored i ended up switching to a spiked club and helping out. i only cast 2 cureIIs, and even while i was practially spamming banish/banish2 i never got hate off the drk.
If you're a mage class, i'd suggest bringing some friends to help. but if you're a melee and want to solo this, buy yourselves some food, a few hi-potions, and go for it. i'd be very surprised if you died.

Solo'd Cyranuce the other nite using 49MNK/24WAR.
Went in with 24%TP, kicked in the Focus/Dodge, slapped down my 2hr, used 1 Raging Fists, game over for the dragon wannabe.
HP went from 1200 to 801, no need to Chakra.
Missed the record by 11 seconds.

Main reason I wanted DRG was to sub for MNK to try out Wyvern Earring. After some time trials, I came to the conclusion that the +5% haste really didn't make significant improvement in speed. Better off getting attack bonus from earring.
Soloed it at 49DRK
