Accept the mission from any gate guard. He asks you to investigate the activity of the orcs in Yughott Grotto. Head to the burning circle in Horialis Peak for a BCNM battle.
For this battle, a balanced party of at least LV 65 players is highly recommended. Even at that level, it will not be a particularly easy fight. You will need someone with a group sleep spell, so a BLM or BRD (or both) is highly recommended. Only people from San d'Oria that are of proper rank may enter this BCNM.
Inside the circle, you will find two orcish warmachines (similar to the Orcish Flamethrowers that you will find in other orc-occupied areas), as well as three named orcs. It is easiest to camp a little ways outside of the actual battle area, and have the PLD pull them all back. The suggested order of the battle is as follows:
The BRD or BLM will sleep whichever orcs the party is not actively fighting. Each of the of the normal orcs will use the respective 2-hour ability for his job, so be careful of Eagle Eye Shot on the RNG especially.
Once you have completed the BCNM battle, return to a San d'Oria gate guard to receive your reward of Rank 8, and 60,000 gil.
