Mission Orders

Prince Trion seeks an adventurer. Find the prince in his chamber to learn more.


Accept the mission from any gate guard, then head to Prince Trion's chambers in Chateau d'Oraguille. Prince Trion asks you to find King Ranperre's true burial place.

Head to (H-8) in King Ranperre's Tomb where you will find a large door. Examine the door and 3 NM Skeletons (Corrupted Ulbrig, Corrupted Soffeil, and Corrupted Yorgos) will spawn. These skeletons are not particularly easy, but you should have no trouble with a 12-member alliance of level 60 players. That said, an 18-member alliance will make things easier because each party can battle one of the skeletons. The skeletons can use Sleepga, so make sure that your mages are out of range of that AoE.

Once you have defeated the NMs, target the door again, and you will be given the option to pass through. Pass through, and you will find a tombstone. Examine the tombstone, and you will receive a cutscene and a key item (Ancient San d'Orian Book). Return to San d'Oria and talk to any of the mission guards. They will tell you that the book will need to be deciphered, and will ask you to come back at a later time. Wait until after Japanese Midnight, and return to the gate guard, then head to Prince Trion's chambers for another cutscene.

Head back to the door at (H-8) in King Ranperre's Tomb and pass through it again for another cutscene (there is no battle when targeting the door this time). Once the cutscene is over, return to the gate guard to receive Rank 7 and 20,000 gil.

How long do I have to wait for book to be deciphered??
# Oct 31 2012 at 6:38 PM Rating: Decent
Got help from an LS member. he brought 99 thf/49 dnc, I brought 70 mnk/35 war. I was defeated in like 8 seconds.

By the way how long do I have to wait for the book to be deciphered. Allakhazam says I have to wait till Japanese Midnight. Is that in game time or on real life time??

70 MNK 50 WAR 34 DNC.

Solo'd this just now as 69 Ninja, with thf sub for evasion boost..if that even mattered. I used the sneak/and pull the middle skeleton method, while the BLMs skeles despawned eventually. Pulled with bow 'n arrow.

Writing this just to clear up the claimed difficulty. The fight was slow, but easy. lol when i helped someone a few days before they swore a 75 was needed and at least a healer.

But i will say without shadows i'd be dead, it used Horror Cloud, Hell Slash, Black cloud..

My husband did this last night solo 73 rdm/blm. he sneaked up touched the door and dia pulled the middle skele. he got a little low on mp and hp but its because he is stubborn and refused to sleep it a minute to refresh/regen. he kept up ss/ice spikes/ protect and shell thats it. he meleed it and when it was done he was in the red had 52 mp and the other two despawned when the middle one died. i myself did this with a pt of 3 63's a 64 and 3 75s and no one got touched and went a lot faster but if you cant get the pt there is still hope and just do it yourself

I just did this mission just now as a RDM75/37WHM.

Only trouble here is Horror Cloud eating through stoneskin. Otherwise the fight was a bit long but not life threatening. And only long because all I had was a martial knife and 138 dagger skill.

I kept haste/SS/phalanx/enfire/ice spikes up(important) and bind when SS goes down sooner than the timer is up due to horror cloud. Used Slow II, blind, poison and bio II to make up the potential damage I would have had if properly skilled up dagger and threw in a couple of Fire III's for 400dmg.

And yea, the middle skele = important one.

Well, in a few hours I'll be rank 7 :P.
kinda messed it

Solo'd this tool skele as 66RDM/NIN, pretty tough fight, keep slow and paralyze on him at all times and hes a chicken-wuss. I did get down to 44MP when he had about 15% HP left, I just gravity'd and ran around for a min and let refresh do it's job. It really was not that hard.

I think any 75 /nin job can solo this guy. He was cake 75war/nin and I'm pretty sure lots of other jobs could solo him under 75 as well. He is slow and doesn't hit hard.

Other posters have said it, or hinted at it, but the only mob you actually have to defeat in order to obtain the cutscene and key item is Corrupted Yorgos- the WAR skeleton.

I duo'd this as a 66SAM with a 75WHM/NIN (who probably could have solo'd it without any trouble) this weekend without breaking a sweat. When you sneak-pop the mobs you'll receive a message to the effect of "you sense an evil presence" right before they spawn. Corrupted Yorgos spawns directly in front of the door and his two BLM-type friends (Ulbrig and Soffeil) spawn on either side of him. In case you confuse the names, Yorgos is the one in the middle with the shield and club who doesn't start casting ice spikes the second he spawns ^^

Pull Yorgos (out of aggro range from the other two, which is quite large), kill him and wait for the others to despawn to move on with the mission. Or, if you're bored like we were, pull the others one at a time and kill them, too.

N.B. The two BLM skeleton mobs can, and will, use ancient magic (Tornado) which is something you may want to be prepared for.

whm solo
# Oct 07 2007 at 9:55 AM Rating: Decent
did this today as whm/nin. So easy. All I did was get 100% TP by kiling the stuff in the room before the door. Buffed up + sneak. Hit the door. Used a pebble to draw out the war mob. Then proceeded to slowly hit away with my club hexa striking it whenever TP came up. Nothing new to anyone here that this mission is a push over figure I would tell everyone the gear I used cause this is super easy.

Purgatory Mace
Genbu's Shield
Blessed Pumps, Trousers,+ Mitts
Walhara Turban
Noble's Tunic
Royal Army Mantle
Victory Ringx2
No food
Hexa striking for about 600 per use. So easy only used about 10-15 shihei. Never had to heal myself only recast buffs. Haste Stoneskin and Shadows. The mob was at about 45% HP when the other 2 mobs despawned. Super easy.
Have fun
MPK warning, dont afk behind the door!

I did this today, it was pretty easy solo as Rdm/nin, though with an unexpected turn of events.

I arrived, buffed up and then sneaked my self ready to click the door and pop the skeletons, imagine my surprised the moment I clicked on the door and the skeletons all turned around and proceeded to clobber a poor 71RDM who had decided to go afk behind the door.

I managed to kill my skeleton easy enough but not before the other rdm was kissing the dirt. I felt kinda bad and tossed him a raise and an appology in /tell but we was still away, he still is now as far as I know. looking back in hind sight it was pretty funny, hes going to have the shock of his life when he comes back.

Moral of the story, dont go afk behind doors used to sneak pop mobs, there is no way we can possibly know you are there until the above happens XD

Retired from FFXI ....but for how long this time?
Japanese Midnight
# Aug 30 2007 at 5:01 PM Rating: Default
I'm thinking that u need to wait till Japanese midnight to get the next cutscene. I completed the NM fight and turned in the book. Then I logged out and went to work. Came back 7 hours later to find out I still can't complete this mission. So its my belief that you must wait till Japanese midnight.

In the end we got together:

Well first off i sneaked up and opened the door. Came back to party and the summoner carby pulled the one on the left we killed it and the others disappeared. We went in touched the tombstone and i got the Book. Then i had to log off so gotta wait till tomorrow to take book back to gate guard..

If you have a higher level party good mix between 3 lvl 70 and a few others you may end up killing the middle guy to quickly. I didn't see any post about this, but something I found out last night. If you spawn them and quickly pull the middle skele and you utterly destroy him, the other two may still be up. If they are you gotta do it over again. I spawned them last night, waited about 3 or 4 minutes then pulled the middle, luckily the other two despawned just in time before we killed him. If you spawn them and wait they'll all disappear. Took bloody forever last night because of this. Other than that, easy fight.

keep up stone and shadows. The other 2 skellis will despawn, and u can target the ??? again for CS. Go and give the book to a gate guard, and wait.
Once it is deciphered you can go to th eprince, get additional cs, then head back to the door. Target ??? and get cs to end quest.

Level: Easy solo for the 74-75 rdm. Less than that is doable but more difficult b/c of the inability to cast Utsusemi: Ni
Hope this helps. If you are on Titan and need help send tell Navion
What fun

Solo'd this fight as 73WHM/36NIN with my lvl 43 healer type NPC. Pulled the middle guy and had one hell of a long fight. I had an O. Hat, AF weapon and a lvl 31 Maul lol along with various eva+ and acc+ equip. Saw the other two despawn in the background towards the end of the fight. NPC never died but I got a little careless around the end and ended up with 158 hp left and about 11 mp. Recommended that you keep every possible buff/debuff going throughout the fight.
soloed quick fight
# Mar 07 2007 at 5:11 AM Rating: Decent
Went in called a CC jug, used my signal pearl, sneak pulled middle one with pet as suggested, easy fight. Let pet take hate then just engaged and it went down easily, finished with rampage. Fight took probably about 3 min, only had to use 1 CC jug.
not too bad...
# Jan 14 2007 at 6:43 PM Rating: Decent
This was easy, used my 75war/37nin and had a 70whm/35nin along to help. Took about 3 minutes and it was dead. Used the sneak pull method and pulled the skele nm and when we killed it the other two despawned. I went in got my key item and got the hell out. Waiting now for the real time to pass to get my rank 7 and start on 7-1 and 7-2. Big alliances pffft, only if you are a bunch of lvl 50's.
It was a lot of fun and a lot easier than I thought. Good luck fellow San d'orians who still have this to look forward to! Shadow lord was a lot harder than this little <Bio>itch!
# Jan 03 2007 at 6:16 AM Rating: Decent
I duoed the middle skeleton (the fighter one) with another DRG/WHM really easily but.... no CS after the spawn! Do you have to kill the NM AFTER the other two spawn off? Because when we killed they were still there... I hope we can go and click again... if not I'm in deep $h17 lol
RDM75/NIN37 Solo
# Dec 21 2006 at 9:33 AM Rating: Decent
Using the sneak/pop method and pulling the warrior skelly, this mission is a complete pushover. Never broke stoneskin, and with half decent eva gear, it missed me quite a lot. Kept Bio II / Poison II on at all times, as well as paralyze, slow, and blind. Now for the many RL hour wait and then its off to rank 7!
# Dec 13 2006 at 11:04 PM Rating: Decent
I thought I would get a party for this mission and I found out that I was wrong no one does missions often on Unicorn or the ones I need so I packed up my gear RDM75/NIN37 went to King Ranperre's Tomb H-8 Buffed up etc etc Sneaked popped the NM's pulled "Corrupted Yorgos = Warrior NM" the Accuracy Impossible to gauge I had to get Shadows up like every 15 sec = Haste you can have this but other then that I was about 3 mins into the fight and the other Bones Deappeared Hurray it been about 2 hrs now still waiting on the Mission to complete so I can solo NM in West Ronfaure 7-1 Meh I hate Waiting

I am thinking a WHM74/NIN37 can solo this but don't know If you have /NIN37 + Haste you can solo it just need someone to haste

I just did this with:
70 PLD x2
75 SAM
68 WHM (me)

You do not a full party. None of us used our 2 hr. We sneak pulled the middle one and keep it alive until the other two despawned. Make sure to silence becaue of the AOE attacks. Overall easy!
