Panta wants you to take the Two of Swords to the Manustery in Windurst Woods to restore the Cardian's magical power.

After you complete the quest Cook's Pride, talk to Teigero-Bangero. Then talk to Panta-Putta. Go to the infirmary in Upper Jeuno and talk to Monberaux.

Go to the Manustery in Windurst Woods and talk to Apururu. She will ask for you to go to Outer Horutoto Ruins and return a Ten of Cups card.

Go to the southwest tower in West Sarutabaruta. Ten of Cups appears at J-8 on that map, which is a hidden beyond two seperate cracked walls at I-8 and J-8. Be warned that the Ten of Cups card is a rare drop.

Once you have the card, take it back to the Manustery and trade it to Apururu. Then return to Lower Jeuno and talk to Panta-Putta to finish the quest.

Ten Of Cups Cardian
# Nov 08 2011 at 3:36 PM Rating: Decent
The Ten Of Cups Cardian is mad campin' time...it's tough trying to get to the location, then once you're there, the cardians spawn every 15 minutes randomly after being defeated.

Finally got it after 6 rounds of 3 Cardians with my Lv.70 RDM/WHM, ran back to Windurst then Instant Scroll Warped back to Jeuno.

The reward is not much but I love the story. Would like to finish this quest nevertheless.

Got Ten of Cups on first kill. TH does work with these and it's not as rare of a drop as people make you think.
; ; 5 hours no drops

... I did this as a WHM48/BLM24 with the back up team of a SAM58/RNG29 and a NIN56/WAR28. We got the drop on the 2nd fight and I was so glad to see the family reunited.
drop rate

58 pld, got my card on the 2nd drop. Only thing is the respawn rate is like 10 minutes so if you kill one and dont get the drop, youll be just kinda twiddling your thumbs until another one pops. They arent that tough but you need to watch closely for links, they stick together pretty tightly.

15 minute respawn time, and it's totally random as to what will spawn.

3.5 hours to get this card, still working on the Coin card
Ten of Cups

The spawns seem to rotate through all the cards. Being lvl 58 RDM I could take 2 at a time with some difficulty. They were somtimes hard to sleep with all the buffs they put up. After I initally cleared the room; 1 fight was Ten of Cups with a link and then the second fight was the left over Ten of Swords. I kept resting and killing them one at a time as they spawned. After 3 cycles I was tired and logged for bed. I got a Ten of Swords and Ten of Coins drop. Only two left are the Ten of Batons and the one we need Ten of Cups.

I'll make another assessment tonight and try to post. Wish me luck ^^

OK update. Last night I logged back in where I left off in the Tens room. There was a Ten of Coins there (dang redmage type buffing freak).

I killed him and then he spawned again right after so must be random. I logged for a few min and right before my timer logged me I saw a Smn run into the room and check the door. He got High JACKED by the 4 Jacks. Doooooh. He waited for a Raise 2 while I continued my slow slaughter.

When I came back there were two Tens there and one was the Cup. The room is so small that IMHO only a carby pull could be successful without a link. Fought 2 at one time again and won. I then had a lvl 70ish paladin show up. I tried to use translator and Say Ten of Cups but got no response. Before I could finish resting the Ten of Cups spawned. I usually don’t use "Dia" so I can sleep them when I need to but it was the fastest spell I could think of just in case the paladin wanted my prey. He didnt move so 2 min later Wooooot Dropped the Ten of Cups card.

That was 4 Cup I killed and about 3 hours of work. Finished the quest and now I’m the "Bringer of Bliss and 2K richer for seling the cape. :)

Not great but I like a challenge.

walked in to the room, a couple other people were camping him i guess (room was empty and they were sitting there). SO i saw a gate in the back and went to click it...4 Jacks spawned, quickly cast bio III on me and wiped the floor with my sorry taru butt...moral of the story, beware of the gate if you have windy mission 6-1 open >.< rofl

went back in the morning and no one was there, 3 cardians were up one being the ten of cups...pulled him and the others linked so i sleep-ga i'm guessing the ten of ups had shell up, being a whm, so that didn't help me, but it did drop the card on the first kill ^^.
Okay TY bi bi!

As I poke and poke at the Tens in this area. Keep getting the other Ten's cards but not the Ten of Cub's card. been 3houres and still poking at them.
Be warned that the Ten of Cups card is a rare drop.

ten of cups
# Oct 08 2004 at 5:57 PM Rating: Decent
well who ever got that ten of cups in 45 min must be lucky because i been camping them over 4 hours and they never droped it.
Do i need to have a thf with me?
# Sep 11 2004 at 7:46 AM Rating: Decent
I would also go as far as to say these mobs are level 55-57 because at the moment im a level 57 RDM and still getting about 16 exp off of them

Naw... You'd be getting much more exp off these if they were lvl 55-57 (assuming you're soloing them)

I had to kill for about 45 minutes too. I think I killed about 6-9 before a Cup spawned. He didn't drop it but another Cup spawned right after and that one did. I think this card drops far more often than the others cause it was the only card I got out of the batch.

They're not hard if you're a red mage by the way. They all like to buff a lot so you have to pull them with silence, put them to sleep, dispel about 3-5 times, rest up, enfeeb it, buff up, and whack away. But I was level 51 at the time.
ten of cups

the ten of cups cardian is not always there.. there are other cardians in that location. I sat around for about 45 mins killing the 3 cardians that spawn there until it popped. Not sure on what the drop rate is, as I got lucky and got the card the first time I killed ten of cups... These mobs aren't easy... I would say they're about lvl45-50 mobs
