You are to escort Cannau to her desired destination within the Eldieme Necropolis.


Note: This is an escort quest. You can only have one escort quest active at a time. Other escort quests include Escort For Hire:San d'Oria, Escort For Hire:Bastok, Escort For Hire:Windurst, All By Myself and The Big One.

You can only undertake a specific escort quest once per conquest tally.

Start the quest by talking to Rondipur in Northern San d'Oria. When you zone into the Eldieme Necropolis from Batallia Downs at (I-10), you will get a cut scene. Note: only the first person who has the quest and zones into the dungeon will get the cutscene.

After the cut scene, make sure your entire party is in the zone before talking to Cannau again. Once everyone is inside, speak to the NPC again. You will have 30 minutes to finish from this point.

When you talk to Cannau, she will immediately bolt away and start towards her destination with no thought for aggro at all. To stop her, simply talk to her. She will reply "Why have we stopped?" This way you can safely fight mobs with her out of aggro and AoE range. To start her forward again, talk to her once more.

Keep in mind that if her HP gets low (in the yellow) she will draw hate from the undead mobs. You can cure her if she takes damage. She will wind her way to the switch at (H-8) to open the doors. Keep in mind that there is a bomb in this room, and Self-Destruct will kill her. Keep her out of harm's way while fighting these and other mobs with AoE (such as Revenants).

After throwing the switch, she will go one of the two ways that you can continue on to the west (the ultimate goal is the room at (F-8)). The mobs will start getting harder back here (Fallen Knights, etc.).

Once she gets to the western wall of the room at (F-8), she will stop. Talking to her will get you the key item "Completion Certificate." Go back to Rondipur in Northern San d'Oria to receive your Page from Miratete's Memoires.

Some notes: You can only complete this quest once per Conquest Tally. You will only receive the 10k gil the first time you complete this quest.

This can be don solo or in a single Party.

If in alliance only the first person in will get the reward.

The NPC's level is based on the Lowest level person in the pty.

Hope this helps

You enter Eldime thru the I-10 entrance.

you will know you are in the correct spot when you get a cut scene.

As i said the character is based on you level so if you can run arround the upper level with out sneak on (lvl 65+ i think) then you should be able to solo this quest.

So that would explain why I would see these NPC's standing in Crawler's Nest, Eldieme, and Garlaige. Four nights ago while leveling in Garlaige, I saw a high level PLD following a TaruTaru NPC into a tunnel where the Vault Weapons and Over Weapons spawn. This tunnel connected to the basement area where Serket spawns. I was like: "Um.. why is he following that Taru NPC?" Now I know why. I wonder what's your reward for this quest. I'm interested in doing this once I get my RDM to lvl 60+.

This quest requires rank 7 in fame. Also she wants to go to the large room on the west side of the 1st floor.

Each town apparently has a Escort quest. The Bastok one involves an NPC that appears at the entrance of Crawler's Nest.
