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.

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.
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..

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.
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.

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.
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
close fight we both ended up with mid 200 hp left, but we won.
easy fight,3rd time doing it, i could prob solo this as /nin
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..
Gear: Sh +1, Wood gauntlets, Wood Boots, evasion torque swaped with enhancing torque. AF pants.Communion Ring x 2, Misericorde (sp) x2. Pimp hat. Scouters rope.
Solo Techinique: Buff. Sneak. Target ??? and pop three NM.
Back off out of aggro range and use Ranged weapon (Lightning Bow) and pull center NM. This should be the war mob.

Buffs: Pro IV, Shell IV, Refresh, Stone skin and Shadows.
Also enspelled with enfire, and used haste.
Tools: Ninja tools for shadows.
Issues: None really easy fight, kinda boring,
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.
Time: About 7 minutes total.
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
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.
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!
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

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!
