I tried this as DRG46/WHM23 and it was a breeze, I cast sneak on me on the top 2 floors and that was the only magic that I had to cast until after the battle. When I fought the NM it was a breeze and I didnt even have to have a healing breath used on me, it took me down to like 365 hp which isnt even under my 33% hp. so hope this helps any Dragoons out there tryin to do this mission.

it wasnt that hard for me, we had

WHM27/BLM (me)
WAR30/ ?
and when we got to the NM..
BLM75/ ?

i put ? cause wasnt paying attention to their subs :P

anyways, i could Sneak and Invis myself while the other WHM did Sneak and Invis on our WAR, we got to the top with a ffew fights and once we got to the top, we could kill the nm cause of all the oother giants that would link, and then we saw a 75BLM running around looking for elementals, i sent a /tell for him to help and he did, he killed the NM really fast, we got the keys, went down the elevator, found eachothers door, and then we all warped out of there. it doesnt take 2hrs, for us it took around 45 mins.
Am I good?

So just take away the fear from you !

This mission is very easy !

Our party setup was:

36 WAR/THF (me)

The strategy is simple. At the beginning of every floor let the WHM ord RDM cast Invis/Sneak on all players. As soon as you are Invis/Seneaked just run to the next stairs/elevator. I cant remember that sneak/invis wore of one time during the run.

Do this till floor 10. When you are there maybe you have to clear the battlefield from the Giants but there are always some parties there so it shouldn´t be a problem. When "Porphyron" spwans just kill him and you get the Delkfutts key.

A word to Porphyron. He is a easy NM. Didn´t do anything special and hit me (36 WAR) only for about 30 dmg per hit. No 2hr was used, no food was needed. And even we didn´t really need the help of the lvl 50 RDM.

With a party of about 5 lvl 35ish people you are on the safe side. Just sneak/invis you through the floors if you want to be fast. You can fight too but it lasts too long.

Took us about 2,5 hours (but only we had to wait for about 0,5 hours for RDM).

Take it easy, and /welcome Rank 4 !
Did it at 50

Been a while since I did this, but let me try to think back to how/when I did it.

Unless I am comletely wrong, I did this when I did my BST AF1 chest, so I think I did it at 50 while I was putting off Genkai 1.

At 50 I mopped the floor with the mobs, but you still have to be careful with links in this place since they can overwhelm you if there are too many.

One thing you should know as well. Do not go past the doors on the 10th floor that head to the stairs to the 11th^^ (The statues + bats + giants + everything else up there are all in the high 60's)

Hey I am a l 49pld/24 war. Will this mission be easy enough for me to solo without any difficulty??

Cheese is evil. As a Paladin, I destroy cheese-based creatures.
RE: solo?
# Feb 23 2005 at 12:34 PM Rating: Decent
Well you will have no problems to get to the 10th floor because you wont get aggro.

But if you are able to fight the HM with a 49 PLD i dont know. 2 lvl 50ish player will have no problem to kill it.

can someone tell me who is the town ldr for windy? thanks
RE: town ldr

The town leader? Like the King of San d'Oria and the President of Bastok? If so, then the leader of windurst is the Star Sibyl.

Want to get rank 4 for my boyfriend (I'm 5 already). When I did this 6 months ago, we had a full party with two 50+ escorts. At the moment, I'm a 41 rng/nin and we have a friend who is getting his war to 40 (galka). Think the two of us and a 30 BLM can do it?

I do have access to high level help, but I'd love to be able to complete this alone. =D

forced a lvl 75 WAR buddy to help me thru this.
He subbed WHM (i was a DRK40/THF20 at the time) and sneaked/invised me thru the whole tower.
Piece of cake.

Think a lvl 46pld/23war can solo it? just wondering
3-3 A Tarutaru Adventure
# Jan 16 2005 at 5:44 PM Rating: Good
I did this mission as a 27 Rdm. I had help from someone in my LS, he was a 55 Pld. At the time I was lvling in kazam and he asked if i wanted help with anything. The only thing i could think of was 3-3 and he agreed to help. After my party had disbanded i waited for him to finish his mission 4-3 for rank 5. Finally at about 3:00am we meet up in Jeuno and started for the tower. He had done the quest, obviously, before so he knew what to do. I didnt have a map either so i was pretty much along for the ride. All i could do was sneak/invisible myself the whole way up there.

We kind of took our time he killed the banshee and other ghost types while i watched from a very safe distance. He was not completely sure where he was going too so it was kind of an adventure, specially when we would run into dead ends. I had to be really carefull of where i cast my spells cause the magic pots aggro to magic like mad i hear and i had to make sure i had sneak/invis on all the time cause of the bats and giants and everything inbetween.

It took us about 2hr. to get to the top. Once we got there we saw someone come out, he had killed the NM so we had to wait for the re-spawn. He told me not to worry about invising up here. I got aggrod by a IT++++ giant, i had blink and protect II on and in 2 hits i had 60hp before he voked it, wheww that could have ended the party early. After he killed the NM I lotted for one of the keys and went down the elevator. As soon as i zoned from the elevator I get this tell, "i dont have a key." I was like, "wtf it just droped six of them." So it turned out that he had kept his key from before and had left it in his mog house. And since it was Rare EX he couldnt get another one.

So he told me what i was looking for 3 doors right next to each other. One of them i could use the key on. He said there shouldnt be any mobs down there. There were bogys and giants. He said he thought the doors were pos. at (m-7), (m-8), (l-6) or something like that. However i found them and for me it was around (k-9) or something like that. Anyway second door i used the key on and i got the cut scene. He's like ok i deffentally know where the exit is at its at (F-8). So i run around awhile. I find a door at (L-8) and he says good enough. I go through it and low and behold...it takes me back up an elevator where he faught the NM. -.- /sigh. So he laughed and i had to go from the top floor (10) all they way to the bottom. Remember i have no map and im a 27 rdm, only thing i got going for me is sneak/invis.

Some how i used one of the warp pads in there and made it to middle delkfutt's tower. All i knew was, "go down." so any stairs or holes i found in the floor i went for it. Many times along the way like a 60+ JP would run by me and /stare or give up confused, they would check me and be like o.O, it was kinda funny. Many times on my way down i felt like death warping but i was up for the challenge. So i have no clue where i am going. Finally i come to a room with a teleport pad and a dead end. Ok i can warp or go back. I warped with my fingers crossed... and... LOWER DELKFUTT'S TOWER. WOOT ^^. I was a lucky SOB.

But im still lost, i knew if i could find people partying then at least i would know i was close to the quifim zone. I keep running around and i come across a party of 50+. I followed them for like 5 min... until they went up a set of stairs -.- so i back tracked. I kept running around going down stairs when i smelt it... what was that... AHH i know that smell its... newbies... yes i found people partying. I ran by them took a left and... zone... QUIFIM! TADA I am the luckyest taru alive. And well to make a long story short i got rank 4 at about 7:00am. So it only took me like another 2hr to find my way down.

I had been playing since 11:00am that mornings so i had been playing for like 18hrs, yea it was time for bed. By this time everyone on my LS were just getting on and saying (Good Morning) as im saying (Good Night!). And well the moral of this story is MAGES ROCK, sneak and invisible are priceless, never leave home with out em. And do yourself a favor and get to lvl 40ish before doing this. Sure it CAN be done but it would have been much more fun with a party.

Here is my experience of this Mission.

I am not sure why people aren't getting the mission; I am a San D'Orian and was at the stage where I had gotten the report for Mission 3-1 in Davoi whilst doing the Paladin Flag Quest, but hadn't handed it in. My linkshell told me they were going to do 3-3 soon, so I went to San D'Oria, finished 3-1, gave the Gate Guard 12x Earth Crystals, got 3-2, bought a Crystal Bass (as I don't fish) and did 3-2, handed in an Orcish Axe I had in my safe to do Mission 1-1 again and that was enough to trigger 3-3. I went to Chataeu d'Oraguille (I don't know if that is the correct spelling ^^) and entered the cut scene as I arrived, spoke to the Gardener, and 3-2 was done properly. Then I got 3-3 from the San D'Oria gate guard, spoke with the King, Warped to Jeuno, spoke to the Consulate, and there is a cut-scene with Monberaux and Wolfgang. That is when you know you have the quest fully activated.

My linkshell then formed up, unfortunately 2 members didn't come in the end, one being our high level escort... We picked up another member in Battalia Downs, and I /shouted for some help in Jeuno and 2 people offered, so thankyou very much Billiam who offered, and Outhit, who came with us, for your help. So, the party setup at last was this...

WHM34/BLM17 (Myself)

As you can see, not your ordinary Mission run, but our WAR17 (who was WAR18 leaving Jeuno, but a Giant Trapper jumped on her) was currently Rank 3 on her third day of play, so we wanted to go Rank 4 = Day 4. ^^ Anyway, as far as aggression goes, I don't know for sure as obviously we had a very low member in the Party. However, I as a WHM34 was getting aggression from most things, especially floor 4 and upwards... We speeded things up with some Invisible / Sneak and letting the DRG and DRK clear the way a little. Our DRG45 wasn't getting any aggression the whole time in the tower, if that is any indication. Also watch out mages near Elementals, Dolls, and Magic Pots as they aggression to magic. It took about 45 minutes to get to Porphyrion, at which point the low level members camped at the back wall, and the DRK and DRG killed him in about 6 hits. 6 keys dropped, we headed down the elevator and back staircase, and our DRK went AFK... We thought we were done, so we strode into the last room, and saw some enemies... our DRK34 cast Drain, and the Elementals went crazy! -.- Our DRG45 was up to the task, and dealt with them well. The DRK62 also returned and bailed us out, but just a warning if you thought you were out of danger once Porphyrion was defeated. Then it was a simple case of getting the Mission completed, and either walking or warping out. Rank 4, Mission complete!

To summarise, my advice is as such:

Try not to take anyone lower than 30, as everything in the entire tower will aggression onto you, and it will take longer. SOMEONE MUST HAVE A MAP. Make sure someone, preferably a WHM, has Sneak and Invisible, again to speed things up. Finally, try and get a high level escort ^^ 50+ would be fine, I think. Good luck everyone!

(This was on Fairy, by the way)
