Rahal wants you to gather information regarding the attacks on the Royal Knights.


This quest requires a bit of running around to get started, just like AF2.

First, speak with Rahal in Chateau d'Oraguille for a cutscene. Then speak with Ceraulian in Port San d'Oria. This will trigger another cutscene in which Brugaire asks you to find the helmet of the last Dragoon for him in Kuftal Tunnel.

Next, head to Kuftal Tunnel and find a Kuftal coffer key. The keys drop from Cave Worms, Deinonychuses, Haunts, Recluse Spiders, Robber Crabs, Sand Lizards and Scavenger Crabs, which are fished.

Coffer chests spawn on the first map (with the zone to Western Altepa Desert) at H-7 and H-6, and on the larger second map at K-11, G-9, H-9, J-7, J-8, I-4, F-6 and D-9.

Open the chest to receive a key item, Challenge to the Royal Knights. Bring this back to San d'Oria and speak again with Rahal. After a cutscene, go talk to Balasiel, the NPC that gives you the PLD flag quest, in Southern San d'Oria. After speaking with him you must go back and speak to Rahal one more time. At this point Rahal will tell you that you need to find the helm of the last dragoon, and that your wyvern should be able to sense where it is.

Now you need to gather your alliance and head to the Temple of Uggalepih in Yhoator Jungle. Something to note before you go, you will need your Wyvern out to spawn the NMs, so to be safe I recommend not calling it till you are ready to spawn the NMs, just incase you die. Make your way to F-10 and walk through the granite doors into a room in F-11 (this room is not on the map). Only Invisible is needed to make it to this room safely, but you may find it easier just to clear the tonberries on the way. If you do this, call for help as you fight them so as to not build hate with them (as the more hate you have the more their move "Everyone's Grudge" will do). Clear out the tonberries, bees and doll in F-11 and then you are ready to spawn the 2 NM shadows. Have everyone get a good distance away from the ??? (the one of the floor, not the wall, as this one is "just a beehive"), Call your wyvern, get a Sneak and hit the ???. Your wyvern will react and Cleuvarion M Resoaix and Rompaulion S Citalle will spawn. Run back to your alliance and single pull the shadows for a real easy fight.

After the shadows are dead, all the dragoons in attendance need to touch the ??? again, which will start a cutscene (best cutscene I have seen in the game so far). At this point you will receive your Drachen Armet and the title of "Paragon of Dragoon Excellence."

On a side note, returning to Ceraulian in Port San d'Oria when you are done will trigger a short cutscene with Brugaire. Its not necessary, just another part of the storyline that I found interesting. Also next time you speak to Rahal he will once again thank you for solving the mystery behind the last Dragoon.

Can't wait to finish this AF and then lvl up to 60 to wear this. Plus, learn Skewer.
Some info on the fight:

The Shadow with the Great Sword is a WAR type, the other is a THF type.

This can be done with a group of level ~60. Fair warnings: The WAR Shadow hits very, very hard, and when he uses Mighty Strikes, your healers need to be ready for the tank to take numerous very powerful hits. The ideal situation would be to let a ninja tank this guy.

The thief type isn't quite as dangerous in normal circumstances. He will use perfect dodge, so just let your mages smack him around while you kite or 2hr it. He can triple-attack apparently, but was overall much less of a threat.

Make sure if you sneak/pull them to separate that you pull one very far away, otherwise the other shadow will aggro as soon as you hit yellow HP, which is very dangerous for your tank.

All that in mind, this is a nice AF3, seeing as you need absolutely no high level help to complete it.

I -think- you get Kakanpu from one of the newer BCNM.

Why not ask the DRG forum?

Here's a rather interesting little glitch that happened ...

... so me and a full alliance go there to help a couple of Dragoons finish this quest, right? Well, we know the drill. Pull the shadows one at a time, and have sneak and whatnot. Well, here's the funny thing ... we took a fair bit of time to kill the first NM we pulled. After we finished and looked back to start on the other NM ... 'lo and behold, he was gone!

Freaky, huh? When our Dragoon friends who needed to do the quest clicked the ??? again, he never respawned or anything. He pretty much got bored of waiting and left, and the quest was much more easily completed. Smiley: laugh

If the person who spawns them is sneaked, they can pull one at a time.
