Gantineux wants you to help him in his study of white magic. Go to the Eldieme Necropolis and offer up "spirit incense" at the dimly flickering candle to try and appease the spirits of the dead.


Speak to Gantineux to begin the quest. If your fame is not at least level 4 (check with Zabirego-Hajigo in Timbre Timbers Tavern), then you will not receive this quest.

Gantineux wants you to help him in his study of white magic. He will give you the key item: Spirit Incense. You will need to head to the Eldieme Necropolis.

There are many entrances to the Eldieme Necropolis from Batallia Downs, but only 4 of them potentially lead to the ??? you need. One requires you to travel through the Ranguemont Pass and Beaucedine Glacier to get to the (F-5) entrance located on the upper section of Batallia Downs. The three other entrances are located at (G-7), (H-7), and (I-6).

Cast Sneak on yourself or use Silent Oil to avoid the undead. Bombs detect by sight but there shouldn't be any in the correct areas anyway. Head in until you see little candle stands in the tunnels. Tab around until you find the ???. It randomly spawns at one of the entrances and disappears after someone attempts to light the incense.

If you do not find the ??? simply try another location. Once you try to light it, the incense emits a putrid odor and you will be told the attempt has failed. This is normal. Go back to Gantineux and he will tell you he doesn't have anything for you but that if you speak to Eperdur in San d'Oria, he may have something for you. He is located in the chapel in Northern San d'Oria and will give you the Scroll: Teleport-Mea.


Offer & Acceptance

Gantineux: I am a friar of the San d'Oria Cathedral, come to Windurst as a part of a pilgrimage.
Gantineux: Now that my devotions at the Crag of Mea in the Tahrongi Canyon are complete, I have orders from the Cathedral to research the union between the magical arts of Windurst and the miracles born of faith.
Gantineux: I debated on how to best proceed, but finally settled on the field of putting troubled spirits to rest.
Gantineux: After hours of painstaking research, I was able to create an item that could be said to stand at the pinnacle of white magic!
Gantineux: Behold my creation! Please take this spirit incense and journey to the Eldieme Necropolis, a veritable city of restless souls.
Gantineux: In the Necropolis, you will find a brazier with a flame that wavers from time to time.
If you hold this spirit incense aloft in that place, it should bring the spirits into a state of tranquility. Please return and inform me of the outcome.
Gantineux: Why not go there myself, you ask? I am on a pilgrimage, and must not travel north of Jeuno.
Gantineux: Furthermore, I am but a simple scholar. It would be impossible for me to enter a place such as the Eldieme Necropolis.

??? Message

This flame seems to be burning a little brighter than the others.
The spirit incense emits a putrid odor and burns up. Your attempt this time has failed...


Gantineux: Ah, you're back! And the result? Oh, I see... I was so sure it would work...
Gantineux: In any case, I must thank you for your assistance. I would like to reward you immediately, but I do not possess anything of value...
Please take this letter of introduction to Eperdur of the San d'Oria Cathedral.
Gantineux: May Paradise open its gates to you.


Eperdur: You saw Gantineux? Tell me, how does he fare? What is that? He's studying magic, you say?
Eperdur: He has always had a penchant for research, but he relies too much on his head for answers. He must revere Altana with body and soul!
Eperdur: I am sorry for any trouble he may have caused you. Please accept this as an apology.
Eperdur: May Paradise open its gates to you.

"If you do not find the ??? simply come back another time."

Easy for you to say. -_-

gantineux is located in the holstery room #1 in windurst waters above the rarab tail. This quest was mad easy. I went and only checked the three areas h7, g7, and i6. After i didnt find it there i decided not to check the fourth spawn location since its a 45 minute trip to the spot. I waited till the next day and checked the same spots again and found it on second try. Only took me like 20 minutes. ive done this quest for both my main char and my mule and i strongly reccomend doing this quest since its so easy and the scroll is worth 600k right now on fairy. [quote][/quote]
i love this one

This Quest is sooo Freaking easy. After the long wait and about 100k for level 4 fame. I did the quest in less than 30 mins. all you need is sneak oils.
got it tonight

Did a two for one. Went and did the supplies quest for Valdeaunia, and ran back through Beaucedine Glacier, into Battila.

went into the Northern entrance to Eldieme, and used my Incense. Now back to Windurst and then sandoria for the scroll
# Dec 21 2005 at 8:36 AM Rating: Decent
Got it at the (H-7) entrance, 2nd entrance i checked ^^
good luck for once

Could it be easier just to check on the three easy spawn points every couple of days?

Is this the way it works?

If the ??? is at the glacier and I dont have easy access, then can't I just wait for some poor soul to activate it and pop it somewhere else?

In the quest description it says that the incense is supposed to fail to ignite, but mine said "This flame seems to be burning a little brighter than the others. The spirit incense emits a putrid odor and burns up. Your attempt this time has failed..."

But I still got the letter and the scroll.
Double, double, toil and trouble

Went through all the other brazier locations except the Beaucedine one. Hopefully it'll have it, or else I'm going to be pissed.

If you have another Tele quest activated, I'm guessing you can't activate this one?
I did the tele-dem, and spoke to eperdur one too many times and activated tele-vahzl by accident ; ;

I have been trying to activate Mea for ages and it aint happening.
He just says something about "being a friar on retreat"...
I have done Aspir and Warp 2 quests no probs...
i never checked fame, but I've done loads of quests and the repeatable fish one about 40 times, so I'm guessing it aint a fame thing???

Plz help me out here =P

There is no lock preventing you from having more than one Tele-scroll quest active at a time. I have Tele-Dem, Tele-Mea, and Tele-Holla quests all active now, and am doing them for my scrolls. Have already finished Dem, and checking on Mea as I type this. I will have to talk to the Holla NPC in Sandy to receive my scrolls anyway, so I figure I'll do them all before I go get them.

Are you talking to person in Sandy trying to get this quest? Cause the person that starts this quest for Tele-Mea is in Windurst Waters i believe. He's on the 2nd floor of 1 of the bars near the cooking guild? I'm not sure exactly where. Maybe someone could reply to help other ppl doing this quest.

freakin thank you guys, someone finally tells me where its at, cause i checked E-10 in windurst waters and that is a little outreach behind a building, so its not even in waters, lame allakhazam, silly gooses
RE: Quick Question
# Feb 17 2006 at 12:41 AM Rating: Decent
No, they are correct. He is in Winhurst Waters, just there is two sections of it. Either you were in the top section of WWaters, or you didn't look in the correct 2nd story building ^^

Now this quest can be very VERY easy or be the biggest ***** ever, depending on your luck. Of course, my ??? was at the entrance to Eldieme Necropolis thru Beaucedine Glacier... why wouldn't it be? I bought two stacks of Silent Oils and two stacks of Prism Powders and off to Teleport-Vahzl. I run through Xarcabard and all the way through Beaucedine Glacier and Eldieme Necropolis finally making it to the ??? (thanks to http://ffxi-atlas.com/maps/?act=show&id=eldieme_necropolis) only to find a Taru there who examines the ??? seconds before I do. He then says "That's too bad." and I /sigh and warp home.

I kick myself and try the other three spots which are the "easy" spawn points for a couple hours (eventually I stopped popping Silent Oils, which is all you need for Undead)), and I give up. Next day I try again going from spot to spot in Battalia Downs then I figure with my luck, it has to be through Beaucedine Glacier... so I buy more Silent Oils and Prism Powders and Teleport-Vahzl, and I finally get the ???. Now I'm a little closer to buying a Haubergeon.

P.S. You need level 4 Windurst fame... Zabirego-Hajigo (Windurst Waters F-10) should say "Why, if it isn't (Name)!"

This quest didn't take more then 5 minutes for me (minus airship time). Use this site: http://ffxi-atlas.com/ and look under Eldiemine (sp?), it shows you every entrance and labels everything. Mine was under entrance (5) from batallia downs on Ragnarok.

This Scroll is going for a big 300k on Diabolos server! $.$ Windy fame is a pain to get, but it well worth it if you need gil (Aspir, Tele-Mea, and Warp II scrolls). A map of where the spawn points for the "???" can be found here by just clicking on Eldieme Necropolis.

very good map... except i went to beaucine glacier all for nothing because #5 entrance is marked too close to the enterance.. you need to go deeper in, almost to the intersection before you find it.

edit: the ??? is marked too close to the enterance.. if you didnt understand ^^

W00t, finally got this, it spawned on the candle inside the mound pictured on the map on the line that divides (I-6) and (I-7). hope that helps some people, took me 4 days to find it.

So I spent 3 hours on this so far. As usualy I tried it, because both of my good friends had done it not too long ago, and completed it within 5 minutes. Well, 3 hours, and about 6 trips each later, I have no luck. Granted, I didn't know which 3 to check in Batallia, so I went to every mound I could see. I'm going to log back in in about an hour, try the three easy ones, and then prepare for Beaucidine (sp?) Glacier, and just hope like hell I'll find it...

Fame Requirement
# Mar 04 2005 at 4:54 AM Rating: Decent
Ok I'm at lvl 4 Windy Fame Guy says ppl are saying great things bout me or something like that. Still can't get any of the scroll quests. Mea, Warp II, or Aspir. Is there another requirement besides fame for these? I've finished the Teacher's Pet for Aspir also btw. Any info would be appreciated.

I believe your at lvl 3. At lvl 4 he will tell you:

"Why, if it isn't [Name]! I heard some guys talking about you over their dinners at
the eatery last night. They had nothing but good things to say about you. Keep up the
good work!"

I know you need lvl 4 for the warp2 quest and i think tele: mea also but im not positive about mea or aspir. i may very well be wrong, just a thought ^^

Teleport-Mea is Level 4 fame.
Aspir I am pretty sure is level 3 Fame.

I am pretty sure for Warp II you need to have done the previous Curses Quests from shinto... I can't remember her full name.

Aspir deffintly Requires a previous quest as well. But that information is shown in the categories for those spells.
RE: Fame Requirement
# Mar 22 2005 at 3:37 PM Rating: Decent
you can get Aspir quest before Warp II or MEA I think its lvl 2 or 3 not sure but I know for Aspir must complete some a few quest before you can get it!
