Visit two of the eight active thieves gathered by the Tenshodo, and confirm the signatures of the people who originally wrote the documents in the "letter from the Tenshodo."


Note: You must have completed Thick as Thieves - THF AF2 to start this quest.

Head to Windurst Woods and talk to Nanaa Mihgo to receive the key item Cat Burglar's Note. She requests two more thief signatures.

Go to the jewelry store in Lower Jeuno and speak to Yatniel, who asks for four Quake Grenades. He is outside the shop on the bridge. Gernades drop off Goblin Miners in LoO or can be purchased for 7k from some guy in Norg and Bastok or you can purchase them from the AH for around 5k. Trade Yatniel the grenades for his signature.

Next, go to Mhaura and speak to Hagain, who is upstairs in the Sailor's Stay. Hagain gives you the key item Bomb Incense and sends you to the Garlaige Citadel to kill a bomb NM.

Head to Garlaige Citadel, bringing at least four people to open banishing gates in your path. You must check a series of ???s in the zone. They are at:

  • I-9, near the first banishing gate.
  • H-9, just to the west of the first ???.
  • F-9, through the first banishing gate.
  • F/G-9, across the hall from the last ??? and to the east.
  • G-8/9, back toward the banishing gate.
  • G-7, to the north of the last ???.

The final ??? is at I-6 (east of the last ??? on the above list near where the drop off is after the 3rd Banishing Gate.). Clicking it will cause a notorious monster bomb named Chandelier to spawn. The bomb will self-destruct immediately if he aggros before he is claimed. HE aggros sight and magic so be sure to only use ranged attacks or provoke.


My strat: (me, Israel)75NIN/WAR, (Alora)66THF/NIN, (Studly)75DRK/SAM, (Jocie)75RDM/WHM~(Icemanx)75WHM/BLM(Dual boxing characters). We stood around the corner while THF went and popped and used hide. I used Tonko: Ni then ran up and voked. We raped it pretty bad. He didn't use Self Destruct at all and the DRK had Stun on macro ready to use. When you kill Chandelier, the he drops your Chandelier Coal.

When you get your coal, go back to Mhaura and speak to Hagain. Trade him the Chandelier Coal and head back to Nanaa Mihgo in Windurst Woods. She'll ask you a question, the answer is "BLANK." She sends you to Ordelle's Caves. Before you go, pick up a Pickaxe because you'll feel like a dumbass when you reach the ??? and don't have one. Go through Ordells Caves like you're going to hunt the Brown Belt NM and Stroper Chyme. Zone to La Theine Plaeau. Stay left and you'll reach the ???. Trade/use your pickaxe and walla! You'll get a cutscene and your Rogue's Poulaines.

(Walkthough through Ordelle's Caves: Go to the hole at H-11/12 on the same map as when you first entered the caves, and drop down the hole. Head east to the tunnel at I-11, being careful to not fall off the cliff. After some stairs, take a left at the intersection at I-6. Turn into the tunnel to the right at H-9. Follow that tunnel to zone back into La Theine Plateau.)

something funny about the bomb . . .

Nobody has commented on the f*d up nature of this bomb. It exploded on my pt *twice* as soon as it spawned. Supposedly, it will explode if magic is used on it BEFORE everyone in the party/alliance attacks it (melee). Please, you thfs who have killed it, post a more complete battle plan for this NM.

there are 2 ??? in the first map when you enter garlaige.

First one is at I-9
Second one is at H-9

then head through the first gate

Go to F-9
then G-9 (opposite side of where you went for F-9)
then go all the way to the beginning to G-9 (that little part jutting southward)
then G-7 part jutting up northward
then finally I-6

The other post said One pt of 55+ can do the bomb and i don't agree... if you wanna kill it (and not let it explode and still get item) then you'll definitely need an alliance. The bomb was hitting my alliance for 300-400/hit without berserk.

When you touch the last ??? in I-6 run back to the intersection and when it spawns range attack it and then you can start fighting it.

When it is about to self-explode just use a stun WS to cancel it out, simple as that. We killed this with 53thf, 57rng, 58blm, 55brd, 54whm and 57pld and didnt even work up a sweat doing it.

Just did this with a JP friend of mine and random people we recruited in Jeuno. First thing to do is talk to Naana Mihgo after you complete "thick as theives" she tells you to go talk to a guy in Lower Jeuno and Mhaura. The guy in jeuno wants 4 grenede bombs which can be bought in AH, I paid 4k each. The guy in Mhaura wants you to kill a NM bomb in Garliage and bring back the NM drop. There is ???'s all over Garliage, you need to find 7 of them and goto each one in the proper order it tells you which is next) dont worry if u do one out of order because it wont do anything and you WONT have to start over, you will get a cutscene after you touch each ???. On the 7th, the bomb appears, kill it and lot its drop. a single PT of 55+ can do the bomb.

I didnt mark down the exact locations of the ???'s but they're easy enough to find, they are all located at intersections in Garliage where it is a dead end, you cant miss it. Just be sure to pay attention to the cutscene after you touch the first ??? as it will tell you if the next spot is North, east, west or south.

When finished go back to Naana Mihgo in windurst and she sends you to ordelle caves to find a ??? and your reward. You need a pickaxe for this ??? so make sure to have one. Head to Ordelle and head inside to where the stropper chymes and chest key mobs spawn, there is an exit on this map, take the exit because the ??? is actually in la thein plateau. The ??? is straight ahead 15 seconds after you zone out of ordelle, use the pickaxe on it and you get the very nice thf boots.
