I know this is an older post but I feel the need to say something here...

This is a GUIDE, not a walk though. You're still responsible to PLAY the game. When you accepted the mission from the guard he TOLD you to talk to Halver. If you would have READ what he was telling you would have known. Quit speed tapping though the tells the NPC is giving; it's part of the mission and PART OF THE PLOT. Rank up missions are supposed to be difficult... I'll bet you won't PT without a PL, will you?

If you can't handle playing the game send me your account info and I'll do the mission for you... I might as well, you're obviously not "playing".

You'll need someone to sneak/invis you, unless you're bringing powders and oils... or if you intend to kill everything in your path.

I left this game 1 year ago, but decided to come back. I find my LS has been disbanded and I'm without friends or help. :'(.

My name is Liverpool, I'm a 26RDM/13WHM on the Ramuh server. Am I too low to do this mission? Or with the proper party is it possible?

Any help please. Thanks in advance.

# Nov 04 2005 at 10:11 AM Rating: Decent
Hey Liverpool! FarscapeOne LS on Ramuh is actually planning to do this mission soon (actually, i think tonight). please go to www.farscapeone.net and contact any of the people on that site to inquire about joining in. hope to see you tonight!

After trying to solo this for like 10 levels, this morning l finnaly did it as a lvl43Redmage/21Blackmage.
*Kept Sneak/Invis up and had Phalanx/Refresh/Regen on just in case sneak or invis dropped at the worst time..which they do lol. All the mobs were Weak/Easy so it was just a matter of time till reached the top[some backtracking from deadend floors], then the mighty battle[Bio2,Fire,Enfire,BlazeSpikes]and with 250 hits/200 mana left the key was mine:)

sneak/invisible is your friend
# Oct 27 2005 at 1:04 PM Rating: Decent
i did this mission today with a lvl 60 WHM friend. wasnt too hard. me being a lvl 25 WHM myself, always made sure i had sneak/invisible on me, and never got aggro'ed. my friend of course didnt have to care about aggros coz her high level. getting the map from the antiques quest is a real must. once u have the map, just refer to the co-ordinates given up above, and u'll be fine. we got to the top in roughly 30min. my friend then solo'ed the NM with the keys, and i finished the mission.

basically, if u have a high level friend that can solo the NM, then that'd be enough. just get some prism powders and silent oils. becareful of the links around when u kill the NM tho. and also becareful not to recast ur sneak/invisible around chaos and elements, as they are magic-detecting.
easy mission....
# Oct 25 2005 at 10:15 AM Rating: Decent
I first did this mission with a friend we were 2 lvl 50 (Pld, War) this were a piece of cake... recently i've helped a friend lvl40 and im Pld lvl60 atm some hits killed the NM and we got key... So there is not any difficulties in this mission except taking a wrong way to Stellar Fullcrum ^^
Save the Delkfutt key!

Save your Delkfutt tower key. It will sit in your bank begging to be dropped for a long time until all of a sudden it's time to help someone do rank-4 or you change cities to rank up again.

If you have the key already, there is no need to kill anything. Just run out to Delkfutt and talk to your ambassador. The key you saved will open the door to the basement and to the amassador. It won't be consumed in the trades.

Even if you're level 75, it's worth saving that key. Just running up to the top takes 45m or so when not fighting anything at all. Running to the tower top is exceedingly tedious.
Tractor cheat

This allows this mission to be done exceedingly faster. Mind you, I've taken several groups up and killed the NM for the keys several times the normal way, this way is by far faster and easier.

Things you need : Someone with the Delkfutt's key already that can tractor, raise and solo the NM (at 70 blm, its a breeze, only links off the NM are a fear)

Enter Lower Delkfutt's tower from Qufim at the first intersection head left, and then towards the hall that runs North. about halfway up that hall is a door that can be entered with the Delkfutts key. Have your friend go thru it. Aggro something near the door, and die.

They can target you thru the door, and cast tractor. Ok, so Raise up on the other side of the door now, run thru with sneak invis and deodorize up (if you have low hp, undead aggro you, deodorize covers that 'scent' up) Follow the left wall, you'll pass some Urns (don't cast any magic, and you'll be fine) some Bogies ( sneak/deodorize up now for sure).

Then a room with a bunch of giants and occasionally thunder eles. still continue to folow the left wall till you get to a Cerment Door. , and talk to it, this one you can just go thru with a yes no question.

Inside, your friend with a key needs to talk to the ??? near the base of the stairs, you without the key sit tight, get unweakened.

The ??? is the elevator , your friend trades the key to it, goes up, kills the NM and some how you're in the same zone as him. Yes, believe it, you can lot and get the keys, from the bottom of the elevator.

Once you have a key, your friend comes back down the elevator /stairs and then guides you over to one of the three doors in the room with the giants and occasional thunder ele. Sneak and inivis thru there btw, because there are bst giants in there with bat pets.

The windy door for me was the northern most door, I forget if this is random or what, but go thru the cutscene and escape outta there. (Trade the key to the door to activate CS)

So.. there you go. the Long way is fun mind you, I've just done it too many times. So.. have fun.

GL, and hope you have some fun with tractor. If you're confused about something in this, please ask, or if you have other fun tractor uses, I'd like to know.

Or...you could just do what Bjond said: do it the long way once, get a key, keep it, and store it for later use. Odds are you'll be strong enough to handle whatever's there the second time you go there (if you go there again at all).

He's talking about having a friend help you to finish the Mission by getting the key without climbing the tower and fighting the NM saving you over an hour of time.

On my first character I did it the "long" way, and it sucked. With my new character I'm going to try this "tractor cheat" because I don't feel like wasting all of the time climbing that stupid tower.

UPDATE 1/30/06

I did this last night... easy as pie with a 75 RDM friend to give me sneak/invis, tractor/raise at the door, sneak/invis again to elevator, he went up to fight the NM, I lotted on key, another sneak/invis over to rescue ambassador, and Warp back to Jeuno to claim my reward and Rank 4. All in all it took probably 20 minutes total.

Any other way is a waste of time as climbing that tower is a pain in the ***.

Wow I typed this up a long while ago it seems.

in response to Faulkon, look at Bjond's post date and the date of mine.

Enough said on that.

Also, on both my characters, I have this key, and have numerous times needed it. You will need it for ZMs I think, you will need it for other stuff. Its generally in my storage in Windurst though.

Also, I said it was a cheat, I said it was another way to do it, if you had things like, a lvl 75 friend who can beat up everything in sight and not care. I did say I ran up that tower several times, and I've run up it a couple more, just cause I was looking for NMs and such in the middle. I didn't mean this was the only way now to complete this or something.

Also, I'm posting this because someone on my server actually read this.. today I guess, and messaged me asking if it still worked. Last I checked, which was month at most, this works still.

Also, as far as coming as lvl 1 to die get tractored and raise?... just kill everything that would aggro them if they are lvl 1.. sneak and invis only last a few seconds.

Mostly I see people get frustrated with running up the tower for an hour and then fail to kill the NM at the top and have to HP or something. This is just another solution.

Also note to Hayt: you do have to kill the NM still.. just wanted to clarify. the Tractoring gets you past a gate you need to open with the Delfkutt Key, but for anyone thats reading this and hasn't done it, YOU NEED THE KEY TO GET THE CUTSCENE (for the mission).

My post was how to get the key without running up the tower for hours and hours.

Ok, I saw it in an earlier post, but it was editted out cause apparently the person figured it out.. Apparently I'm not that quick. I keep running into the problem where Lucius says "I am sorry but I am busy at the moment. Would you mind coming back later?" I still need the letter apparently. I've actually gone into the tower gone up to the top had a friend kill the mob and gotten the Delkfutt's key, but I get no cutscene. The mission log says go to Jeuno and hit the Bastok embassy, but hit up Lucius for the letter first. The punk is too busy to give me the letter tho.. HELP please!! PS rank points are maxxed for rank 3. Fame is as at 4 or 5 for Bastok..

I cant find anyone to help me with this mission. Would any of you be willing to help me and then maybe form an Alliance and do the 4-3 Mission ?

Please let me know. My FFXI name is Ricocant, and my POL email is: Miky1574@pol.com.

The climb shouldn't take long at all. Took our group of three about 40 minutes to get to the top and kill all of the gigas at the top, hell everything that popped for that matter. Got to love when you have a BST with a crab and two dragoons that are 20 levels higher than you in your party. (>")b

chang t o "skippable" status

disregard this entire post.. very stupid on my part, my bad :-(
I was under the mistaken impression that mission 3-1 was skippable, like mission 3-2.

is it possible that S-E has changed the status of missions in the last update? I cam eot do this misison, without having done missions 3-1 and 3-2, with a full rank bar (he won't accept anymore crystals from me), but the only missions I get offered are the rank 2 missions and mission 3-1.

I have no idea if installing CoP could have alterred something? (we installed it this week after having had the original FFXI + Rise of the Zilart for nearly a year)

Just so we're clear on this: the last mission we comnpleted, successfully, was killing the dragon. Normally, we should have gone on to do "the four musketeers", then "to the forsaken mines". Both of those missions are marked as being "skippable".

My friend and I both have full rank point bars, both are over level 33, both Fame 9 in all 4 major cities (just in case ANY of that has a bearing).

from what I've read
# Aug 13 2005 at 9:54 AM Rating: Decent
So from what I read I can do this with just me and a realy high lvl player?

at the moment there is me lvl 30rdm/15thf and a lvl 40whm/20blm that needs to do this mission.

So if we got one high lvl player like a lvl 50+ can it be done with just the 3 of us?
