Contents [hide]


You are to investigate the Zilart ruins of Ro'Maeve. Chief Engineer Cid has more details.


Before venturing out to Ro'Maeve, make sure to have a talk with Cid.

In Ro'Maeve, clear the area around (L-7), Target the ??? to spawn two NM Golems called Mokkurkalfi.

After defeating the golems, you will need to find the ??? again for another cutscene. The ??? might be where it was before, but chances are it has moved to a new location. The ??? can spawn at:

  • D-10
  • E-9
  • E-10
  • E-11
  • G-9
  • I-8/J-8
  • K-10
  • K-11
  • L-10
  • L-7
When you check the ???, you will get a key item Reinforced Cermet. If you leave the zone before finding the ??? again, then you must fight the NMs a second time (logging out or accepting a tractor counts as zoning).

Return to Cid for a cutscene to complete this mission.

I just soloed this mission as MNK75/WAR37 and i started off w/ Chi blast on 1 NM and just started pounding away at him but i didnt kill him until the second NM depoped. as soon as it depoped i just Asuran Fist'ed him and the luckly enough the other ??? was just literally around the cornor.

You was born to win, Expect the win, and you will achieve that win.

I go as 75 galka rdm/nin for my solo:

1. Found the ??? (check guide).
2. Scout area around and find or create a good safe spot for fight (I have to killed a couple weapons as the ??? I found is not a mob free area).
3. Sneak up and pop. No aggro.
4. Pull one (no link) to safe spot. It's attack speed is super slow.
5. The ??? had moved by the time I finished the golem so I had to find again.

I guess the things to look out for is avoid aggro (sound+magic) here.

The initial spawn spots are random - It won't necessarily be at L-7.

Having just hit 74, I figured I'd try something for fun, and to test out /NIN. Headed out, found the ??? spot pretty quickly... Spawned enemies while under Sneak.
Very easy fight... Poor accuracy. I figured I'd just get a little extra EXP and kill the second one. It took (much...) longer to find the ??? again.

I solo'd this mission last night as BLU75/NIN37. ??? I found at G-9. I sneak pulled and pulled off to where nothing was. Was a fairly simple fight Blu style. Other one depopped and I killed it fast enough that the ??? didn't move.
Solo as MNK/NIN

I soloed this mission a few days ago as a 75 MNK/NIN. I got lucky and found the ??? in a place with a nice weapon free area nearby to pull to so I didn't have to do any clearing. After summoning my lvl 47 healer npc and using Dodge, I popped the NMs with sneak up and pulled one away. I didn't have my 2 hr since i had used it while soloing mission 6-2 but the fight was easy anyways. I never dropped into yellow hp and my npc never casted a cure on me. The other NM had depopped right before i finished but the ??? had moved so i had to seek it out again. All in all it's a pretty easy mission.
Complete the mission easily

Ok full explanation of the Mission:

Get it from Cid, he will ask you to go get a piece of Reinforced Cermet from Ro'Maeve. Go there, and find your ???. It spawned in a spot that wasn't listed on the posts above for me so I think its a random spawn anywhere in the lower tiers of Ro'Maeve. Clear your area, and pop a silent oil/sneak. Click the ??? and 2 NM's will spawn of the same name. Get a little way away from them and pull one with Chi Blast/Ninjutsu etc (just not magic). With any luck it will come to you without the other one aggroing your newly dropped sneak. Pull it to the zone and get whoever has hate to zone if they have the train that I had lawl! Kill this joke of an NM and then go search for the ??? again. It moved so I had to pop a sneak and go tab happy on Ro'Maeve. Once you find the ??? again, click it and you will receive your key item.

Well we found the point and killed the one weapon close by, the others were far away so we didn't bother killing them, we pop'ed it and 5sec later, on moved from far away to come aggro to my Dia, I let Paladin on the golem and move to kill the aggro, first thing I know, another one join in, by the time I killed the first, I got 2 more on me, We finally killed it after 4 weapons and 1 doll aggro, needless to say this fight is easy, most likely any job can solo or duo with a good subjob.

Just make sure to clear that place well first, those suckers aggro from far, and move a long way to get into that range, they can walk quite a distance.


Goodluck :P
nothing special

just solod this on RDM/NIN. im not sure if the info up top is just wrong or what, but the ??? didnt change positions for me. Although i accidentaly got both, and some magic aggro when trying to pull, so i zoned. Came back in, one was standing there attacking some helpless RNG so i killed it and like i said, the ??? didnt move. zoning didnt affect getting the item either.

??? spawn pts. (D-9)(D-10)(E-10)(E-11)(I-8)(K-9)(L-10)(G-9)
basically the second tier of ro'maeve
my spawn was at (D-10).

i cleared the doll and weapon that were in the corner first.
applied sneak, checked ???
2 NM golems(Mokkurkalfi) spawned.
ran out of sound aggro range, cast dia2 and ran to the cleared out camp.

very easy NM for anybody with ichi/ni to solo. it misses alot, add enfeebs and its a pushover.
uses ICE BREAK, goes through shadows
uses CRYSTAL WEAPON, binds target, goes through shadows
both these atks weren't anything to worry about. use barblizzard to deal with ice break; it never got through my stoneskin.

it has low life, it misses alot even w/o blind applied. gave me 45xp@lv75.
take a stack of sneak oil, and look for the ???; its the hardest part =P

i solo'd this as thf74/nin37 and it was pretty easy. just sneak pop the ??? and pull one and the other will depop after about 5 mins. the lowest i got was 750/1100 because he uses some abilities that ignore shadows, and others that just eat them. the ??? was at D-10 and i didnt have to clear i just fought him on the ledges and kept close to the wall and didnt aggro anything. after i killed, the ??? was in the same spot so i got my key item right away. good luck with this and if your on Fenrir give Thayer a /tell i will kill it for you. ^^

How on earth do you pull just one? I sneak popped them but they popped right next to each other.

After reading Baude's post we figured we may as well invite our SMN friend, Kenjin, to come help us with this fight. He carby pulled to the entrance and tore it apart with Garuda. I'm pretty sure me as BRD/NIN and my wife's WHM could've easily duo'd this. He hits very very hard but if you blink away the damage it's no big deal. He doesn't have a lot of HP. It only took 3 Preadator Claws to take him down and by the 3rd one he was at 7% life so it was more than overkill.
# Jun 21 2006 at 10:02 PM Rating: Default
I am level 74 SMN. I sneak up and get carby out find the ??? at E-9. The two Golems popped, i sicked carby on the one to my left and run for the entrance to RoMoeave. Once there, i waited for carby to die. When he did, i summoned Ramuh and did 4 level 70 Blood pacts and attacked the Golem with my Lightning staff and killed it EASILY.

Then, once i killed it, there is no message or reward or anything so i sneak and start looking for the ??? to get my cement chunk. And wouldnt you know, i found them when i ran down the stairs and it appeared on the ledge just behind where the golem pop was. When you are traveling in Ro Maeve, have silent oil because casting sneak is NOT AN OPTION if you solo this as i did. Total time, about 20 minutes for fight and finding of the second ???.

Good luck and if your on Ifrit server, send me a tell or email and I will help you.

Done this, easily... so easily.


RDM/NIN soloed the lizard while we beat up the bomb in less than a minute. Then we beat up the lizard. Over. We built TP on wasps first, though.

whats going on
# May 16 2006 at 8:52 PM Rating: Decent
Ive done this mission twice. whenever i touch the 2nd ??? nothing happens. I cannot get the cermet chunk. I've talked to the gate guard, i've talked to cid repeatable times. Still, i havent' gotten the key item, and havent been able to finish the mission. DOes anyone know what's going on?
RE: whats going on
# May 31 2006 at 12:23 AM Rating: Decent
the ??? at M-8 is only for Black Halo WS. Make sure don't let it conduse you =)
This ones pretty basic
# May 13 2006 at 6:21 AM Rating: Excellent
Big thing I'd really avoid with this is draggng massive parties through this zone. I just soloed this as a 66nin/33war (morbus on ifrit if you need help). Generally I exp my npc in boyahda tree on robber crabs if there aren't pts there and with kurayami, hojo, and jubaku up this thing felt a little weaker than a robber crab. So the impression I got out of this fight is if you can't solo it, bring in a well balanced exp pt of around 58-60, make sure you are capable of getting slow, blind, and paralyze on the mob, send out a scout or 2 find the ??? have a nin or a thf train all the weapons in the area to the zone, and make sure your mages are out of aggro range from the dolls. Sneak the puller have him tap the ??? back off to just within striking distance for ranged weapons (I used kurayami: NI), and hit one mob, fight that, the other will likely depop while you do so (it did me), once it's dead send the party back to the zone (not through the zone, have them wait just inside) and send your scout(s) back out for the key item ???. once they find it, call out pos and have your party come collect their reward.

Note, for the scouts I'd recommend bringing a lot of silent oil (I used 16 doing this by myself), how many you need depends on a well organized search pattern and a little luck.

Moral of the story is do this mission with the fewest amount of people you can pull it off with, you don't want to transition alot of people around in here, and you certainly don't want a pickup party/alliance with half the people involved depending on your mages for sneak.

Had to edit to add a factoid, I don't remember where either of my spawnponts were but I checked the map and neither were posted in this thread, come in expecting to do some hunting, it's pretty random.

If you can solo it at 66 as nin, I wonder if me and my bst duo partner can manage this at 63 since we wouldn't be tanking(pets).

Thanks for this post, I'm a big fan of less people. Everytime my parties(already capable enough) decide to alliance to get something done(to make it easier), the pickup people always die all over the place and we spend forever rescueing them.

It was like that in Ifrits Cauldron for ZM5. We picked up a party and they didn't bring sneak/invis items or mages willing to handle their members.. And after some mess, we ended up having to have our nin kite ashy around which was a real mess... while we kited bombs and raised people. Our party's deaths only came from the rescue missions...
Interesting mission

We found the NM at G-9 and the key item at L-10.
We brought in 9 people averaging lv.73 so it was cake. Bring sneak oils cuz it'll take forever to fight through everything. NM was cake!

ok we popped the nms kill it thing moved far away. we were pretty stupid went to black halo ???. Just too much stupidity can kill everyone.

Basically you got to find the second ??? pretty fast.
Nothing of interest
