Phara needs some sword grip material to repair her son's sword. The material can be found in a tent in Davoi. Once repaired, Phara wants to give the sword to her grandson.


Begin this quest by speaking to Phara, who is standing at J-9 in front of the residential district of Bastok Mines. She will request some sword leather.

Next, head to Davoi to find some sword leather. Search the orc tents at K-9 and K-10 to find a hidden flap, which randomly appears throughout the area. When you examine the hidden flap, two notorious monster orcs -- Gavotvut and Barakbok -- will appear. After defeating the orcs, you must search the area again for the hidden flap. Examine it again to receive your sword leather.

Return to Bastok Mines and trade the leather to Phara. Wait one game day and speak to her again, and she will give you a key item, Yasin's Sword, and ask you to give it to her grandson Naji.

Find Naji, who is standing outside the president's office in the Metalworks. Talk to him to receive your Razor Axe.

So this was interesting, I spawned the two nms, got aggrod a lot and died. Luckily a couple other people were passing by and raised me after killing off the nms themselves. Then when I attempted the fight again I instead just got the "Sword grip material" key item I needed. So to complete this quest I guess all you have to do is spawn the nms, they must die, and you can't zone. That's about it.
Much thanks to Magicalflame and Deathopulas on Sylph for helping me out on this one :)

Did this today with one problem witch I should point out. 54rdmg/27blmmg cleared the area first, clicked on the flap. POP they come the caster was real easy so went for him first, plus using aspir to replenish my own aspir for the next one thw war. he's the one that has the hp!! well sorry to say two reg's spawned and agroed then more and so on. running out of mp and hp with no back ups. I decided to focus on the main one and i did kill him but had to run to zone then came back to check the flap again well I had to refight both of them again!! so do not zone out unless a must. However I beat them with no problems afterwards. just pick a good spot for less respawns like behind a tent! and take out the caster first he's real easy!! good luck :)
Easy Peasy

Just soloed as 75 Rdm/Whm. Was an easy fight though long due to their high HP count. Just kept stoneskin and phalanx up during the fights and didn't take any damage the entire time. The surrounding orc's will link if they get close so you may want to clear the place out if they will be a threat to you though at level 75 they were <Too Weak>.
Perfect Dodge + Flee

EASILY solo'd as 55 WAR. Bring bloody bolts, take out Barakbok first. Sleep Bolts ineffective, but you'll live.
hour wait time

wanted to note you don't have to wait an hour to get the sword, just for the day to change, so if you time it so that you trade the sheath at 22:00 you can get the sword in like 5 min when it hits 00:00. just a thought.
it was a joke

I'd solo them as SAM75/DRG37, was so easy, even i got 3 links, i'd start with the DRK NM cause he used Blood Weapon, tachi:kasha helps a lot by paralyzing the mobs, but with meditate + jumps, was able to solo a lvl 2 skillchain who does over 400 damage.

Piece of cake

Pretty easy

Just did this for my War as my 75Mnk with my 71Mnk buddy helping. Was pretty easy, I took one out while he took the other one out. Didn't need to 2hr, could have for the fun of it though, lol. Didn't even need to sub Nin or anything. Of 'course, it's always fun to backflip off of somethings face. :P

I just helped a LS member complete this quest today. We had a complete overkill set up with a 71WHM, 69PLD, 65DRK(me) and 42WAR. The PLD was already there when we arrived to Davoi and wanted to see if he could solo them so he checked the spot to spawn the Orcs. When I arrived Barakbok was almost dead and Gavotvut was unclaimed. I engaged Gavotvut and got off a Guillotine when the others joined in. Shortly after he was dead. After we cleaned up the links we re-searched for the hidden flap and the WAR checked, respawning the NM's which went down just as easily as before. I was a little disappointed that my highest guillotine was only 1149 but I only had my +ACC gear. Once again we cleaned up the links and found the hidden flap pretty quickly, WAR got the item and we were finished. Unless you have someone that wants to try to solo these NM's or just want to have fun, make sure the person doing the quest checks the hidden flap both times to avoid fighting them twice. The other orcs in the area are significantly weaker than the NM's so taking them out before would be easy, not take a lot of time, and build up some good tp to use on the NMs. This was a fun little quest and I'm glad I actually got to help someone else for a change rather than always being so needy and asking everyone else for help.

Went as my 75whm/nin and a friend 55bst/nin. We killed everything around for 300tp. Then I spawned them. First off I went for the drk. Hexa Stricke for 1028 and with Stoneskin and Utsemi: Ni up, I never got hit. Bst had a beetle out and took the war mob down to 65%. I killed drk then Hexa the war taking hate then we killed it. Easy fight over all.

Solo'd this as 61 pld/30rdm (yes i know pld/rdm can do almost anything), the fight took about 8 mins. Those NM's are a joke (kinda). The warrior NM was worse than the drk. They missed alot and did about as much as an easy prey mob when they hit.... I just looked at my logs and the warrior NM was actually an easy prey, 20 xp. Just kill the drk first, didn't need to buff AT ALL (I forgot to) didn't sleep any mobs just alot of hits and about 12 vorpal blades later 2 dead NM's. I even felt comfortable enough to use Gsword during the last half of the warrior NM. >.> overall abit of fun^^, stick some good music on and follow the path of {Death} and {Self-Destruct}ion. Now onto help a LS person get his RDM AF sword @_@
Pwned these NMs

Soloed this as 70rdm/35blm, easy. Slept the links and focused on taking the NMs down. HP never went below 900/1032, and never ran out of MP. Didn't even use convert. Easy fight

I beat the NM's no problem as 73sam/rng a few sidewinders took them down easy. but killing 2 NM's and 9 links isnt as easy as it looks... i walked away as 99/1230. My advise... kill all orcs around the spawn and you will be ok a 60nin could kill these.
np NMs
# Aug 07 2006 at 8:32 PM Rating: Decent
just wantd to come on here and say i just beat these 2 pushover NMs with my mnk 59 and my npc 36. I never went under 800/1449 hps. 2hrd and killd Gavotvut in no time. Barakbok 2hrd and never hit me.

As long as you start the quest with your war by having Phara send you to Davoi, you can complete this as any job.^^

A few things of note:

1) When you click on the flap the first time, it will ask if you want to enter. Go ahead and do so; all that will happen is that the two NMs will pop where you are standing.

2) Any orcs that are around can and will link in, so if that's a concern, then you'll want to take care of that.

3) Two NMs will spawn: Barakbok (drk) and Gavotvut (war). According to parser, Barak had 4021 hp and Gavot had 6805. They both will end up using their 2hrs.

Good luck.^^
Coulda won first time

Tryed to duo this with bro as 51war and me as 59blm. ES+SleepII was resisted, so im guessin these NM's cant be slept. We cleared area popped then Bro 2Hrs after sleep resisted, looks bad so i try to escape us, inturupted 3x so we just stick it out. i mainly cured with occasional nuke. Drk went down and i 2hr cause im out of mp. Made my mistake there by castin Burst for 800 and didnt dent the wars bar too much. Equipped Eva gear and bro did all he could to take hate. I recasted SS 5-6times in fight. Had a pop on us and i died shortly after. It depopped since i linked, and bro took NM to about 2% when it respawned on him and killed him. HP Bro changes to 71drg go back and pwned it. Would have won if i didnt Burst and take hate and die. Main thing dont count on sleep, get high lvl or two tanks for these, other than that fairly easy

The 2 NM's are too weak, me(57war/28NIN) and my 67Thf friend Duo'd this tonight. I popped grabbed the DRK NM THF took the WAR NM. I had about 220% TP waited until 250% and let lose a Rampage did 1080dmg took it to less than half life, killed it about 30 seconds later. Then went over and helped THF finish off the other NM Fight took about 2 minutes.

spawn the 2 nm run an look for the hiden flap again an zone the 2 nm work for me an today Snikuid did wat i told him an her solo'd it. War Does not have to be ur main job to touch the hidden flap

that doesn't work. I tried it today, so your ether a liar or SE fixed it in an update.

I spawned the orcs and used flee to run around and find the new flap. checked it and it said "event skipped" I got nothing. no sword leather... nothing. I then made a huge train to the zone.
