Last Updated: Fri Dec 2 14:50:37 2005


You have been asked to head to Fei'Yin and help Dalzakk, one of Oggbi's students, with his task.


Go to Port Bastok and talk to Oggbi at E-6. He will ask you to accompany Dalzakk to Fei'Yin.

Next, go to Fei'Yin and zone into Qu'Bia Arena, and then zone back into Fei'Yin. You will trigger a cutscene and receive the key item Letter from Dalzakk.

Go to Davoi and look for a 'Hide Flap' on a tent at (F-7). Clicking on the flap spawns two NM orcs named Bilopdop and Deloknok. After killing the orcs, investigate the 'Hide Flap' on the tent again to receive the key item San d'Orian Martial Arts Scroll.

Return to Port Bastok and speak to Oggbi again to receive your Temple Gaiters.

Note: This mission can be completed solo at any level. Simply use reraise before the two orcs spawn, then die, wait for the orcs to despawn and check the 'hide flap' again without zoning. Spawning the orcs will always cause the hide flap to move to a different tent close by.

tougher than its made out to be

a word of caution, the second part of this isnt all that easy. The mnk orc has an insane amount of HP and the paladin, although weaker, will support him with cures and protect. When you combine that with the links in the area, you might be in danger just by attrition from the mobs damage over time. Make sure you clear the area of links before trying this if you fight the mobs solo.

Ignore that note about teleporting/warping out ,, just enter arena, turn around and exit. get CS "then" warp or tele wherever you like

You r in a safe area(entering and exiting)why warp before u exit and get cs

Solo'd as whm75/blm37

ok for the mages out there, I soloed these as whm75/blm37. it was the most fun i have had in a long time. I was planning on dying and reraiseing but i thought i'd try to kill them first. i dont think drain/aspir would have been enough to keep me alive. Spirit Taker FTW! Meat kabob,some melee gear and
NO juices or drinks, just a meat kabob. spirit taker did 200ish damage and got 200ish mp back. I had 4 links and and a wasp that got cought in Sleepga. FYI this fight took 20-25 min. incl. killing 1 link. then i just sleepga and went to get other flap. In melee gear im at 975hp 975mp Taru power

To easy any 75 Job can take these 2 and any links no prob. Hmmm what to choose 75 Red 75 Thief or 75 Bard... Bard would take to long... Theif never get hit thats not that fun... RDM oh yeah lets have some fun.

75RDM/BLM Enhance up Refresh/Haste/Pro4/Shell4 and have fun
kill out some orcs Make sure you have Stoneskin and Phalanx up before popping even though you wont need them. I hardly got hit with all +STR gr (+32 with food) Grab 300% TP
pop out the 2 S. heads from the tent flap. You wont need Reraise this fight will be simple.
The monk mob resisted my Sleep2 so I said eh let the idiot hit me cast ice spikes.
Take on the Paladin the fight will be too easy went sort of like this. Aspir--> Blind---> Slow---> Drown---> Rasp---> Frost---> Pois2---> Dia2---> Spirits Within keep up your enhances and keep plugging in hits and use Savage Blade whenever you get 100% use Aspir when it comes up too keep those MPs coming. When he dies take on the MonKey. Do the same for the monk except don't cast Aspir (had to toss that in for slow people). Have fun he has a bunch of HP misses often and I only counted 2 counters he did 0 dmg.

You can have some fun with them two when Pld used Invincible I casted Stone1 just for ***** and giggles. When MNK pops 100 Fists did a Gravity and Bind Tech although I bet he would only land 1-10 of the 100.

My buddy and I did this fight as 75 Beastmasters, and it was no contest. Courier Carrie ripped that Monk NM apart and his Hundred Fists missed her just about every time. My buddy was using a lower-capped FunguarFamiliar against the Paladin NM with less success, but it died fast when I put Carrie on it and we double Rampaged.
teh win

well i decided to go the hard route, i just straight up tanked them, 75nin/war took on the mnk first since the pld was blind as hell, got to the 2hr thru on some eva gear SH+1, opti, evasion earring, forgot evasion torque in MH, got thru the 2hr with only really losing about 250hp, he missed me a ton, but he had a lot of HP, he died and i had about 200 hp, move on to the pld and took him down with ease with 74hp to spair.

oh yea i had a bowshooter shooting me the WHOLE time b/c i forgot about him lol

Solo'd this as 72Thf/nin. I had help clearing the area so I didn't have links or many repops when I did it. Used bloody bolts, acid bolts, and blind bolts. I never really went below 50% when I had both attacking me. After I killed the pld it was cake. Perfect Dodge when he Hundred fists and went back to full hp using bolts. All 'n all it wasn't that hard.

Not much of a story, really... but, I soloed this as PLD75/WHM37 -- Stoneskin ate most of the damage I would've taken... no normal attacks took more than 20 damage off me. Had Joyeuse and some haste gear, a shoddy DD setup with AF patching the holes. Cast cure 0 times, regen once, ended the fight with 611hp out of 1384, including some random damage from a mnk link that wandered into the fight at the end. Fought the pld first, til he used invincible, switched to the mnk until invincible wore off, switched back and finished off the pld. Pretty much just hung out until the mnk died... casting flash and stoneskin occasionally. Very soloable as PLD at 75.

I'd just be sure to note that when you zone into the BC at Fei'yin, just zone right back out. I haven't read every post prior to this one, but that point was somewhat unclear to me and I wanted to be certain that people knew :P

Soloed this yesterday as a 68 RDM/BLM

Cleared out some of the orcs between the spot i was gonna fight them at and the flap. Spawned them and pulled em over to the spot. was bad at first, only had 1 RNG-type link and was goin well. Mnk used as laughed as phalanx alone was enough to null most of it.
By the time i beat MNK, had 2 more rnglinks and 2 pld-type links. about half way through fight w/ pld i was down to wire on mp and HP for convert, but managed to use it just in time. At this point i was sleepgaing all the orcs that linked me and this fight.
When the PLD went down (he has wayyyy less hp than mnk) I gathered all the links near each other and sleepgaed one last time and went seachin for the flap. got it and escaped.

I must say aspir drain and sleepga saved the day. i had wished i brought my dagger along for pld so i could energy steal off him during fight.

Soloable by Drg.
# Aug 28 2006 at 7:51 AM Rating: Decent
This probably won't help many people since there aren't that many 75 Dragoons out there doing this quest but the Orcs in Davoi are definately soloable by DRG/MAGE although you kind of have to ghetto the fight a bit.

Battle Prep:

Used a reraise gorget just incase, and brought Yag drinks. Cleared all orcs surrounding the fight area and put up stoneskin, blink, protect II, shell, and aquavail. Popped a meat kabob, put on dark staff and rested to full mp.

Summary of the fight:

So I triggered the orcs by selecting the hide flap and going inside. Once the PLD and MNK orcs popped out I targeted the PLD and hit him once then let my Wyvern (Rover) to hit him once. I then target the MNK orc and hit him once, then let Rover hit him twice to gain more hate. I switched back to the PLD orc and started beating on him while the MNK tried beating on Rover. Eventually the PLD popped his 2 hour so I switched to the MNK and beat up on him until it wore off. After the two hour dropped I switched back to the PLD and proceeded to kill him. *Yes the MNK was on me now but missing a lot and not hitting for much* The PLD dropped fairly quick and Rover and I started working on the MNK. As soon as the MNK 2 houred I Super Jumped and let Rover take the hundred fists. It was hilarious how often he missed and the fact that Rover survived cracked me up. Anyway, after the 2 hour broke went back to beating on him and he dropped shortly after. I had to have healing breath III cast on myself maybe twice the whole fight. Overall not a horrible fight, probably smart to have your call wyvern back up before trying.

If for some reason you just don't want to mess with the fight there may be another way to do it *not tested*. You need to make sure the orc spawns are ALL cleared in order for this to work. Basically you'll spawn both orcs, hit one, let your wyvern hit it twice, switch targets hit the other and let your wyvern hit it twice. As soon as your wyvern is taking hits from both orcs you can disengage and run around to find the the other flap. Assuming that it respawned. Again, not tested, but after reading some of the other posts about running around while being hit by them it definately seems doable.

Hope this helps someone... maybe..

I was wondering if nyone can help???
I reached Lv 50 with Glee and quickly ran over to Oggbi and received the quest. I found Fei-Yin with some easy and even had time to stop and hunt Nue (1/1). Anyway after about an hour I managed to find the arena (k-8) (I have no map) and selected the BS, the only choices it gave me to enter was rank 5 Mission or leave!!!!! ARGHHH

Do I have to complete rank 5 1st or am I being stupid?!?!?!!

Cheers in advance

As far as I've read you have to trigger 5-1. I just did this quest yesterday and I walked in there on my dragoon, then started to walk out and got the CS, so I didn't end up needing to do anything with the circle itself.

# Jul 25 2006 at 2:53 PM Rating: Decent
I just did this quest using my 61 pld, it wasn't so bad. Nothing in davoi aggroed me. I easily cleared out the area around the flap alone and then put up reraise. I then spawned the NMs fought them a little for fun and then ran over to the next flap. I didn't feel like dying so I decided to try my luck and kept trying to examine the tent and select "yes" as fast as possible as to not get interrupted. After a few tries I finally got it in between the 2 NMs' attacks and got the item with them still beating on me. I then ran out and zoned to jugner. I got out safely with about 300 hp left. I just thought I'd post this to say it is possible to do this without dying, you just have to be fast and pay attention to their attack timings (and of course get lucky). Good luck to everyone else!

It worked for me. I could have just been lucky, and it helped being paladin because they couldn't kill me very fast.

I thought I should point out that the key item cs only activates for one person each time, in case you decide to kill the NMs as a group of people who need it. I was helping someone else get his, figured I'd get mine as well, but he got the cs and I didn't--despite clicking on numerous tent flaps after the kills and getting "you find nothing inside" each time.
NM despawn'
# Apr 22 2006 at 5:39 PM Rating: Decent
NMs took 3-4 mins to despawn after my death.

1. Got to Fei'Yin for CS.
2. Warped and went to davoi
3. Spawned NMs
4. Used Instant Reraise before they killed me
5. Waited for weakness and found the other hide flap
6. Warped and completed quest

Easy as MNK53/WHM26 (whm for snk inv)

Psst... Most orcs don't detect by sound.

# Mar 05 2006 at 11:51 PM Rating: Decent
Just did this as 65 Rdm, actually i did everypart of this as a 65 rdm except start the quest.
Once in davoi, i found the flap, buffed up completly, Protect Blink SS Phalanx Haste to speed up warp, blah blah blah then hit it, and when teh 2 dudes spawned they started beating on me. I waited for the icon so i could select it and warp out,but it never came, so i figured it moved and i ran around a bit when i realised i wasnt getting hit anymore. Now im not stupid, so i KNOW that i did not lose the orc NMs in a 20 foot area, so i get out of 1st person view and im d/cing... so i cry and reload game ( if i die, i delvl to 64 and i sold all me rdm stuff for lvling, but still use it for things like this ) i load up, see my hp at 0 for about 10 seconds, then it jumps up to 950 and im all happy again, i immediatly put up invisible and look around ( some orcs were EP+-). The 2 NMs ARE STILL THERE. I check for the flap there but the flap moved to the complete opposite side of that area, i hit it and got the key item. they did not come after me, and are both probably still wandering around over there. So if worse comes to worse, D/C.... even though mine was an accident
Piece of Cake
# Jan 25 2006 at 8:32 PM Rating: Default
Just did this as my WHM62. Had BLM as my sub. Buffed up with aquaveil also and hit the flap. Blink and stoneskin let me hit the flap again while the two were whacking away at me. Got the scroll and attempted to warp. Stoneskin failed as warp was at 70%. Ran for my life, but found that they couldnt keep up for some reason. Made it out safely with 730 hp to spare. Had about 25 links I'm sure at the end. Davoi must be tough for them to stick with you as I really didnt get hit until I attempted to warp out again, thinkin the NMs were far behind. Would have been easier to do subing THF for flee.

First solo AF for me, quite proud of the accomplishment.
New Changes Affect This Quest?
# Dec 23 2005 at 12:08 AM Rating: Decent
Does anyone know whether SE's latest changes designed to eliminate mpk affects your ability to die, reraise, and grab the item undetected, as described by so many here?

Is it possible that now when you spawn the NMs, let them kill you, they will just disappear and re-spawn if you reraise and try again to examine the flap?!

Soloed this today 51 MNK/NIN. Tonkoed up to the tent flap, dropped invis, tried to check the flap, DID get aggroed by the orcs there (just one -.-) and got event skipped, so use caution inspecting the flap for the first time. Killed it, reraised up, popped it, got raped, Lool got NM aggroed, trained away everything (Thanks Lool! ^^), popped reraise, examined flap, acquired San'dorian Scroll of Martial Arts, scroll of warped out. Good luck to all soloing this. Yeay! Temple Gaiters are mine :D

NM's are not affected by the mpk fix, they will not despawn if you die unless they were orignally set to do that.

{hmmm} I tried it yesterday on Bismarck, and it didn't worked. I trained few Gobs to a safe place, and I died. Every mob disappeared, besides the 2 NMs. They were walking back to their tents and aggroed a RDM/NIN. I reraised and got my keyitem during the RDM was fighting. /sigh I almost MPKed him... sorry 'bout this

yep, i'll double confirm on khanmots. i did the exact thing and it worked like a charm. only thing is I didn't see NMs despawn, they just ran to the tent and chilled. So i guess if it's the same tent for you, you're boned.

P.S. I dunno how long, if ever NMs will despawn. I'd like to apologize to anyone they ruthlessly kill.

Clarified Solo Process~~
# Nov 26 2005 at 11:48 PM Rating: Decent
Post on this AF is not really clear and created confusions in me when I tried to do it. So here's my detailed strategy. I will focus on the Davoi part on this guide only, the Fei Yin part was sort
of common sense easy.

1)Absolutely Soloable under the condition that you either Kill them all, OR you Die once.

2)You HAVE to die and reraise yourself at the same zone (i.e. You should NOT warp back to homepoint after you get killed, cus it would be considered a zone so when you come back the second time to examine the "Hide Flap" the 2 NM will pop again like the first time.)

3)Asides from the Zone thing i cannot confirm whether if the NM will disappear after some time or after you die, but the only thing that matters is you stay in the same zone after they popped, this makes the second Flap pop a valid one.

Strategy 1: You solo and die for it
Try your very best to find a place to die that is least populated or walked about by Orcs. When reraise kicks in, make sure NONE are facing you, before clicking "Yes",unless they are 1000 miles away (beware of bowshooters...they look far?.

Strategy 2: None solo.
Either find a good kiter or simply Party Fight them all. If you go for kiter, know this, the "Hide Flap" DOES change tent after first click, and it is just as risky as solo cus then you alone have to run about orcs looking for the 2nd pop with chances of Invisible wearing off anytime and you have to deactivate it for the Examine.

Few Things to be aware:
# If you get aggro while examining the Hide Flap, any mob hit will cause your examine to be cancelled with "The Event was skipped." I had to Perfect Dodge to properly examine it the first time.
# When you examine, this is what happens: [Enter the Tent?] ---> [(1)YES (2)NO], if yes the screen blinks black once and you get the NM pop, second examine gives you the Book. If you get hit ANY time before the screen blinks, your event is skipped.
# The Orc Tent region is very big and they are very cramped, so if your Invisible is wearing...don't take chances unless you have to. My heart nearly popped out cus I had to reapply powder between two orc with thier backs facing me, I was merely lucky.

If you want to solo, be aware that you MAY die 1-3 times trying if your are not careful or inexperienced, so hopefully this guide makes you all more prepared.

Invisible can just be recasted, powders can just be used over top of each other without aggro. This doesn't work with any "sneak" methods. But as long as you're the one "casting" invisible it cancels then overwrites instantly.

I've stood facing many things that aggro sight recasted invisible and not one of them even blinked. Hope that helps some

i just solo'd this quest as 75nin/sam. went to feiyin then davoi. when i got to F-7 there were 3 orcs roaming around so i had to clear them then check the hide flap, the 2nm pop (PLD+MNK)

i decided to kill the mnk first since it hits faster, but i think killing the PLD first might be easier cuz the PLD will heal the other NM if it's low on HP.

the fight lasted about 10mins cuz the MNK had so much HP. afterward i went to check the tent but no hide flap @.@. i was worried that it might have taken me too long to kill the NMs that the flap despawn but i ran around tabbing and found it at the nearby tent...hoooray!!

MNK AF2 completed...now AF3...i wonder if i could actually solo this one;
