By "town leader" they mean your Gate Guard. Go to Windurst Woods and talk to the Mithra in Leather armor just left of the gate to East Sarutabaruta. Choose the mission "A New Journey".
at level 30

I just finished this mission mostly by myself as a lvl 30 war. I shouted in Jeuno for help, but nobody wanted to help out. I figured I'd just try to make it to the top by myself, and ask somebody for help once I got to the top level.

I bought a stack each of silent oil and prism powder (6k each in sandy). Used 9 of each to get to the top floor, and a lvl 60 thf took down the NM for me. Used one more batch of potions once down in the basement, and that was it.

In summary, it'll cost you as a lvl 30 if you can't find help, but at least I made some of that 12k back once I finished the mission.

One more thing, go to that treasure hunting maps website (can't remember offhand the url) and PRINT out the maps first, and mark all the stairs/teleports using the above guide. You don't want to sit for long periods of time looking at your maps while your potions are running out.

Good luck!

Me and some members of my linkshell did this mission last night. It was time consuming, due to the fact that none of us have attempted this before. And even fewer of us have ever been up past the middle portion of the tower. The party looked like this.

PLD-40/WAR-20 (Galka)
WHM-40/SMN-20 (Hume F)
NIN-40/THF-20 (Hume M)
WAR-38/NIN-15 (Elvaan M)

Without any sneak or invis buff's. We were able to pretty much run around on the Lower part of the tower and not get much attention. The Giant's seem to not pay much attention to level 38, even tho they con as Easy Prey. Now im not sure if the robot guards are aggressive or not, because we were able to run circles around them and they not aggro at all. The pots were a different story. They seemed to attack anyone healing (taking a knee) or anyone using magic.

Throught it all tho, the only problems we had on any floor were the goblins. The goblins on the lower tower didn't bother us. But the Smithy's, Pathfinder's, and Shaman's on the middle and upper floors did. But with the group's levels, and jobs. Even a room full (usually 3 or 4) of mad gobs, would die easily. And without the WHM wasting alot of mana, or lives getting too low.

On the upper levels, higher level players seemed to have been farming for items. Because alot of the gigas monsters were either being trained to a certain spot to die. Or were already dead. They didn't bother the mob we needed thankfully, the high lvl PLD even waved goodbye to it before we engaged it =P

Was a good experience, and a nice little test run for us. Not having high level help was a plus, and made the mission alot more fun, and rewarding in the end.

Good luck to anyone that needs to complete this mission ^_^

OK, I did this mission. Got the key, talked to the girl in jeuno and was awarded rank 4. Went back to San D'oria to get the next mission and it still has the 3-1 and 3-1 mission there. I went to the castle, havler says I am on direct mission to king. Tried to get to king, door is locked. What did I miss?

You need to go to Jeuno to continue doing missiong. You will get them at Ru'Lude Gardens.

46 DRG/THF and 39BLM/WHM duoed this entire mission in 1hour 44 minutes. Only had one problem throughout the whole tower, and that was because of a room of like 5 goblin pathfinders/furriers/shamans. BLM got a little to close, and got one on him while i dealt with three. Other than that, was a very easy, enjoyable second run through the tower :) Id say this mission could be easily done with a dmg dealer and a healer both around lvl 40-45. Just make sure that you have full health/mp before going into the elevator room. gets tricky to not get the nm with the other gigas.

Key issue
# May 29 2004 at 2:30 PM Rating: Decent
I killed porphyrion with the help of a 47 Ninja and 6 keys dropped. I thought that I only needed 1 kept for the elevator and passed on the rest. I didnt realize I needed a 2nd key for the door. Do any of the other Gigas in the basement drop the key needed for the door?

You do not need a second key for the bottom doors, just the same one used for the elevator.

There are 3 doors, nation specific. One of them will open for your nation.

I got the letter, but when I go to Jeuno, the man behind the San d'Oria embassy's desk says nothing about the mission, and the door to the next room is "restricted". Did I miss something?

I did the same mistake, had to go all the way back.
You have to talk the sandy king (or your countries leader) when you get the letter.

I dunno if this has been posted or not already, but I noticed that it says you dont get a certain title from this mission. I do however remember getting a certain title, "Researcher of Classics". Is that from completing the mission or from defeating porphyrion? If its from the mission you should post it on the main menu for the missions...

Researcher of Classics is the title you get in the middle of bard flag quest.

Problems with receiving letter from Lucius
# May 13 2004 at 5:52 AM Rating: Decent
There's alot of ppl who have problems with obtaining the letter from Sir Lucius, because he allways claims to be to busy.

If you have this problem try the following:
Go to the Bastok Consulate in Jeuno and talk to the Galka behind the desk.
If he says something to you about: "Qufim is a dangerous place and you should not go alone" you have already activated the last part of the mission.
This appears to be some bug in the game.

All remaining to do for you is basically go up Delfkutt's tower and follow the rest of the mission as described above.
Don't expect help from any GM about this problem, cause they simply refuse to look into this bug and they'll only tell you they don't give gametips and that you have to search the internet for it.
Even tho it's a fricking bug.

Good luck with this mission all

# May 25 2004 at 3:42 AM Rating: Decent
and for all you ignorant *** who don't understand that this also goes for the other cities and not just for bastok.... well.... now you do know ;)

if u got the mission, but cant talk to whoever you are supposed to talk to next, just head down Delffkut tower
