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.
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.
