Mission Orders

The time for the Dark Dungeon jailbreak is at hand! At the request of the Manustery, you are to collect the ministry rings from all the five ministers.


The preparation can be done solo. Get the mission from a gate guard and trot over to the Manustery to speak with Apururu. She explains that her brother is locked in the Dark Dungeon and only you can save him. You must collect the five minister rings to open the dungeon door. These rings are mostly from past missions - you have to go speak with the Minister NPCs to collect them. Collect four rings from:

Once the four rings have been collected, speak with Apururu again. She will then send you to Kupipi (receptionist in Heavens Tower). She will tell you that to collect the last ring, you must go to the Amaryllis Tower of the Outer Horutoto Ruins.

A party of at least 14 adventurers of level 65 or higher is recommended for the fight. Go to the West Sarutabaruta tower at (F-4). Once inside, go through the Cracked Wall at (I-6), then to the Cracked Wall at (G-7). Med to full and buff up before examining the wall as doing so will trigger the fight.

You'll be fighting two level 72 Cardian NMs:

Once the mobs are dead, examine the Cracked Wall for a cutscene, then return to Windurst and talk to Apururu again. She will direct you to Shantotto. After another cutscene, Shantotto will give you the key item: Glove of Perpetual Twilight and direct you back to Apururu.

During this next cutscene with Apururu, she'll ask you to meet her at the Dark Dungeon. Head to the Inner Horutoto Ruins entrance at (J-7) in East Sarutabaruta. Go past the Three Mage Gate and at (I-7), you will find the Gate of Darkness. Examine it for a cutscene.

Return to Apururu in Windurst for a final cutscene, Rank 9, and 80,000 gil. If you'd like to see more of the storyline, speak to Shantotto.
