Troupe Brilioth is aiming for a dance style that will captivate and enchant. Work out how to take your dancing to the next level, then come back and show Laila.


You must be a level 40 Dancer or above to start this quest. Make sure your job is "Dancer" and head over to Laila in Upper Jeuno. After the cutscene, speak to Rhea Myuliah. She should be standing right next to her. After you are done, prepare yourself as you'll be heading over to Grauberg. There will be a NM to fight so bring some friends along for the ride.

In Grauberg, there should be a ??? at F-5. Unlike other jobs, though, you must remain as "Dancer" to aquire the cutscene at the ???. Click it one more time to spawn the NM Migratory Hippogryph. Kill the NM and talk to the ??? once more to receive the key item: The Essence of Dance.

Note: If more than one person has the quest active and are in the same party/alliance, the NM only has to be popped by 1 dancer and only has to be killed once. After the defeat, everyone with the quest open may click the ??? for the key item.

Once you have the key item, return to Laila in Jeuno. You have to manually go into your key item list and open it there before speaking to Laila. If you don't check the item in your key items list, you will NOT get the next CS. If you did, congrats on your new War Hoop!

Same here soloed this one on my own with the 50 dnc/nin, main item you'll need is Remedy for the parlize he cast on you in case you can't remove it on your own.
and food didn't matter because he took that off me twice. so I gave up on that and just kept my hp up. pretty easy tho. good luck...
solo kill

solo-d this nm today as lv50 dnc/nin. i used squid sushi +1, ice trousers (for paralyze), drain daze and kept box step on the nm. the nm misses alot so it is fairly easy to keep up shadows. semi-long fight. the hardest part of this mission was just getting to the witchfire glen area solo. most mobs on the way from the telepoint or the maw aggro to sneak and are IT++ so bring some oils with you. they can be avoided if youre very careful. then there is an area around g-7 to g-8 that is full of hippogryphs which are true sight so just be careful and avoid their line of sight. i found the map at http://www.ffxi-atlas.com/maps/grauberg/general/ which i found to be pretty helpful. hope this helps ^^;

Did this yesterday with my help from my friend Ophiucus...

Ophi - 75RDM/NIN
Me - 44DNC/NIN

Took 3 stacks of oils an powders just to be safe. Got aggro once on the way which Ophi handled easily. On the way got 2 Tele crystals an 2 Maws, anyhow on to the fight ... which was soooo easy, popped it, killed it, death warped, got War Hoop end of story^^

Take care ppl!
