Contents [hide]


You are to go to the Gusgen Mines and pass the same trial as Oggbi's former student, Cornelia. Use a pickaxe on a certain hole in the mines to lure the Wandering Ghost out. Defeat it and bring back its miner's pendant.


To start this quest, go to Port Bastok and talk to Oggbi at E-6.

Next, get a pickaxe and head to Gusgen Mines. Look for a ??? around G-7, and trade your pickaxe to the ???. Doing so will cause the notorious monster Wandering Ghost to spawn. Kill the NM and it will drop the Miner's Pendant. Bring that back to retrieve your Beat Cesti.

To get to the ??? in Gusgen Mines go straight across the first map and down the stairs. Use the left hand door to enter the second map. Go to the room in the northwest corner and follow the corridor that runs west from this room. This will take you down to a new map. Go to the second room. The ??? is located on the left side of the room toward the back. There is another ??? on the left side at the back of a shed (this is not the one you want).

Soloable - Yes
# Jul 13 2009 at 6:01 AM Rating: Decent
soloed as 50mnk/25sam
so you 75 ppl should be ashamed of yourself!
used my 2hr - popped few +3 hi potions - and icarus wings..
otherwise it was a decent fight.. was waiting bit more from it tho
and no.. i dont have godly gear
just make sure you dont rush in and spawn it.. get prepared for it and self buff
before u spawn it.. saw 1 fella not selfbuffing while i killed mobs for key
and believe me when i say it didnt work that way..
so get few pots - 2hr rdy - icarus wings (atleast 4)
and u can solo it

so once again.. you 75/37's can shove it up in ur **** when coming to here
saying its easy.. ofc it is when mob is like 45 lvl... idiots
Not short but still sweet

Well from what i read from other peoples posts i thought i'd prepare well seeing as i was only MNK51/DNC25. So i grabbed myself 2 X-potions+1, a scroll of instant re-raise and my signal pearl. Sadly I found out the potions were a waste of money as i didn't need them and the re-raise scroll was a waste of CP.

Before the fight i did a TP build and got my 300% along the route of getting there. Being my first AF fight i was surprised when the NM spawned behind me and got in a free hit. Engaged and used focus and dodge My lvl 48 NPC whm casted a few buffs and de-buffs. About 2 mins in i messed up big time by using my combo macro instead of healing waltz but managed to recover thanks to 2hr(also had to use chakra here). It was becomming a close fight at about 25% mob HP but i just re-used my dodge, focus and chakra and fought on to victory.

I dunno maybe i got it easy but i was expecting a lot more of a struggle to win.
Soloed at 58.

Yeah. *Shrugs*

If I had gone /NIN, I wouldn't have really been touched. ^^; His accuracy sucks, big time. Most of the damage I took was from their freakin' fast-castin' spells.

Survived with 300-something HP, then... Bio eventually wore off at 200-something. Heh, heh.

I went in at a level 52 monk and got it to 50 percent of its full health and it did some crazy weapon skill. i agree with kairyu. atleast 60+ without using potions.

This is probably the easiest fight I've ever done in my life.
Soloed as DRG75/BLU37. Was a fun fight, just too damn easy. Not enough for the DRG that's soloed pallas and snow maiden. :P

Don't forget your pickaxe when you go get this ghost, I didn't forget but it would suck to get to the ??? and not be able to pop the damn thing. X_X

This is the kind of comment that make Allakhazam so gay... That's a nm lvl 45 for a quest at lvl 40 dude ... you are proud to solo it as a drg75/blu, You could solo VT/IT stuff at your lvl with that job combo...

OMG !!! I soloed Leaping Lizzy w/ My Ninja75/Dnc37

{Hmmm.} i just went there w/ my friend to get these (My friend is a 75 blm.) and i went as my MNK50/WAR25. i'd have to say that this thing has about 5000 HP, and as it's a ghost, it has high defense XD i'd recommend that you're at least LV 65+ to be able to take this thing w/o too much trouble... and careful for it's curse attack XD
woo beat cesti...?

Solo'd as DRG65/BLU32 just a few minutes ago, I couldn't silence the thing with chaotic eye, but other than that pretty easy. Remember to bring those Holy Waters.
Easy battle

Just solo'ed this for my monk friend. It wasn't hard at all. Took a little while but not bad. I was a 72 PLD/BLM.. Just used staff for spirit taker. Wore it down gradually. But neither of us were ever in any danger of dieing.

Did this today, we had a 63SAM/RNG (me) 41MNK/WAR (Diclonus)

I was a bit worried about having no healer... My HP reached the Red (I had 300-400 hp left) the MNK was still at high HP. We both used 2hr, the NM didn't really have time to curse us

It's not a bad fight, if you go for pure DD the fight wont last long, if you don't have enough DD bring a healer.

I had brought Holy Waters just in case.. but I ended up not needing them. I used 2 Hi-Potions, they weren't really needed but I chose not to take risks (especially without a healer)
Open the gate! For the Love of God! Open it!

Did this twice now. Its so very easy. Only issue you will have with this quest is how to escape Gusgen.
# Sep 29 2005 at 3:40 PM Rating: Decent
just did this for a friend. Party was:
51DRG/WHM (me)

fight was easy enough. Curse is a *****. BRING HOLY WATERS. Sneak oils is all anyone will really need to get there. Only the mnk ever got aggro. and he just sat out the battle

The mob seems alot tougher then lvl 45, even for an NM.

fight was about 2 mins. 2 lvl 50+ can kill it i think aslong as one is a healer of some sort and canhandle some hate (i.e rdm.).

Easy fight MNK AF1 completed.

Sleepga SUCKS
# Aug 29 2005 at 12:43 PM Rating: Decent

As soon as I mine the spot, the ghost pops, ninja manages to voke, and the ghost sleepga's us. Soon as I wake up it pulls off another sleepga. after that we finally got to fight but got hit with a paralyze. The monks used Hundred fists and start beating on it. When the 100Fist wore off we all used our most powerful WS, nearly killing it. by that time I aggroed a couple flies ^^; the RDM got mad and had to sleep em all. When it finally died after another Raging Fists from the Monk i got the miner's Pendant.
I did the quest just to get it out of the way, considering I can't even equip them ^^;
I wonder
# Aug 18 2005 at 5:31 PM Rating: Decent
think I can solo it? lv 60 Drg/War
Dont forget!
# Jul 31 2005 at 12:23 AM Rating: Decent
Just a reminder: To get the NM to pop u MUST have a pickaxe, i forgot mine when doing this then i begged ppl to sell me one w/o succes.
About an hour lost :(
AF1 in the bag!
# Jul 02 2005 at 1:49 PM Rating: Decent
Yeah even tho this quest was mad easy it was still fun the see the story to it. at first i started out w/ a whm lv 72 helping me then when we got to the mines therer was a pld.. imguessing lv 75.. also doing the mnk af1 so he asked if we wanted help and i said sure! yeah this ***** was down in 5 mins i say ******* easy! and as for curse the whm just cure the pld when he ever got low... which only happened once. over all easy quest, but for a sucky weapon...
i recamen 2 person pty to make things go quick... definatly whm and a pld, or even a drkis good because of damage.
Wandering Ghost

Man this ghost has sooooooooo much hp.It was me a 46MNK with a 73BLM in AF2,well to sum it up i started with Raging Fists(after he made a good opening move and boi 2'd me)then BLM FireIV'ed him 2 times,then i got Raging Fists again,then after a little bit i used Raging Fists once more.Then the BLM used FiragaIII and knocked the rest of his hp out.The only advice i can give anyone trying to do this quest is get a high lvl damage dealer to nuke and/or tank.GL
Owned it
# Apr 17 2005 at 1:26 AM Rating: Default
I owned this guy as a 60 SAM. Went in with meditate and used ws then followed up with 2hr and icarus wing. By that time it was nearly dead I just kept attacking and it died. I did get cursed but found a WHM to uncurse. Don't forget the pickaxe like i did LOL.

I just got finish doing this quest. Soloed it as a 74 pld/ninja, he wasn't hard at all he just had alot of HP and kept casting Ice Spikes & Aspir. This quest is solo-able
RE: Solo
# May 17 2005 at 4:22 PM Rating: Decent
Of course it's soloable at lvl 74. You could solo a ????ing asteroid at lvl 74. You should be ashamed of yourself you big bully.
Never did this AF

Do you think a LV64 RDM / LV31 WHM can solo the ghost for this AF1? I am able to solo some of the others (Dark spark & DRK AF1 for instance)

RE: Never did this AF
# May 12 2005 at 6:01 PM Rating: Decent
You probably could solo it however it is one of the more challengin af1 mobs to fight I have solo'd drk, whm, blm, darkspark (with a lucky flat blade) only 2 af1 mobs that gave me probs soloin was mnk and rdm because they have some hella hp. But sub nin as I do for these fights and u have a chance. So maybe just on pld/mnk/rdm bring a tad of help for fight they are duoable solo but quite frankly I dont feel like tryin them without a raise2 or raise3 handy :-)

Soloed him for my AF as a 75 BLM/WHM. He has a lot of HP, I won with about 20 MP left (After some meleeing, too, and Manafont wasn't up). He didn't hit hard at all and had horrible accuracy against me, so I just cast stoneskin twice, and nuked/meleed.

Looked like it had around 5500-6000 HP.
