Go to Mhaura and meet Koh Lenbalalako. It is said that she knows the whereabouts of the sinner's daughter.


Note: You must have completed Sin Hunting - RNG AF1 to get this quest.

Talk to Perih Vashai at K-7 in Windurst Woods for a cutscene. Next, head to Mhaura and talk to Koh Lenbalalako at F-9 in the Blacksmith's Guild. You will receive another cutscene.

Next, head to the Eldieme Necropolis. Upon entering, you get another cutscene in which the Mithra Tracker wants you to go ahead of her and "clear the way" to the tombstone (southernmost G-9 of 4 chambers in the Eldieme Necropolis area accessible from I-10 in Batallia Downs.) Find the tombstone and examine it for another cutscene.

Return to Windurst and talk again with Perih Vashai for another cutscene.

Next, head to Castle Oztroja. Make your way past the large doorway controlled by the four switches. Proceed through the tunnel and up the stairs until you reach the large room with the fountain. Run into the pool around the fountain. When all yagudos have turned away, use scavange and camouflage, then run back out into the hallway. Repeat this until you receive the item Old Earring.

Return to Perih Vashai in Windurst. After the final cutscene, you will receive your Hunter's Beret.

For newbies..... The gate switch opens all gates. Just keep clicking it. You will need two people.

Also once you go past Titan's gate and get through to (g9) the gravestone is in that large room and to the right up the steps. There will be a lever behind the gravestone so you will be able to open the gates for your teammate without having to leave the area.
old earring

Well, SAM is your highest job, so you might want to try on SAM/RNG so you can handle aggro. Try to get as close to the middle of the pond as possible.

I'm not saying that it definitely works, but here's my story:

Tried using scavenge for about an hour. Logged off and went to sleep. Logged back in and tried for another hour. Read the Alla forums. Logged off and logged back in. Got in the center of the pool and...got my old earring on the first scavenge.

buddy i tried it like 30times before i finally got it trying the log out log in its a myth i spent over 5 hours doing this that day its bulls*** thats now how the game works, ive read all the post, all the hints, i finally got it when i threw my controller at the TV then the next time i did it i got it which was hilarious but i had to buy a new TV first lol, but the fact is the log out log in is false, because another one of my buddies went there blm/rng and spent 2 days there he did the log out log in for the first day and the second day as soon as he got back to the castle and did scavagen he got the earring.

I was 0/19 as pld/rng. Logged out and back in, got it first try. I tried to put myself in the center, but it's not a perfect circle so the "center" is somewhat difficult to ascertain.
So. . .

As many others have said in this thread, it seems that positioning youreslf dead center in the pool will get you the earring the first time. I just did this with my husband and it held true for us.
# Mar 18 2008 at 12:11 AM Rating: Good
That's another one for the log out/log in thing. Took 2 hours, logged out frustrated, logged back in to try the trick and got it my first try back. I also made sure I was as close to dead center as possible.
Twelve Hours.

Alright folks... let me say that I "camped" this off-and-on for 12 hours over the course of 3 weeks (Ranger is just an "on the side" job, so I wasn't in a hurry). But, as you can imagine, not getting the earring was really starting to get to me. Finally, frustrated out of my mind, I checked the forums here.

I saw the posts about standing the middle... but I'd been doing that. So I took note of the posts about logging out and then logging back in to reset "something." Well, whatever that "something" is, it worked. Because after logging back in, I got the earring on my first try.

Do yourself a favor. Try it. Or risk insanity and permanent injury like I did.

Went twice, first time ran out of silent oils... more than 2 stacks... second time came with my gf Sarenity (thank you honey =P) so she could save me some money on oils lol. No success for over an hour, tried the log out/log in. No luck. Saw the coffer pop. Logged out, logged in, stood in front of coffer, got it. Try it. I hate this mission... glad I never have to do it again.

ummm yeah im 56rng right, so i go and talk to mithra in windurst and start the mission. i got to Mhaura and talk to Koh... well this is where it gos wrong. i talk to her and all she says is crap about old native mithrans and sinning. there was no cut scene or anything. i look in my quest log and there it is. under currnet named "fire and brimstone" and its summary still says to talk to koh lebalalako. well i call a GM and find out theres 47 calls ahead of me. wtf?! anyone got an idea as to why this is happening? ive done af lvl 52 af gloves already and af weapon...GAH!

Ok, I did the Necropolis part as 75sam so checking the tombstone as another jobs works. You also need someone else to hit the switch for you to get past Titan's door.

As for the Oztroja part, I went as sam/rng. I don't know if /rng will lower chances of getting the old earring but I got mine on the first try. I got to the pond and stood in the middle like these other posts said. I also can't confirm about the hidden lvling up for scavenge. I've probably only used scavenge once before attempting this. Iceday 48% moon. Also, the Coffer chest was in the center of the pond as well. I just stood in front of the coffer and used scavenge.

Hope that helps a little.

Something about that coffer chest being in the middle of the pond... when I got my brd af, that was where it was too.

I read the Quest Details and had been thinking to myself, "Damn this would be easy as my 75PLD..." Thanks for the info, X! ^^ Rate up.
doable with another job
# Jun 13 2007 at 7:12 PM Rating: Decent
You can do this with another job and sub ranger for scavenge.

I went as 50 RNG with a 75 rdm friend, i scavanged 13 times and while i was afk my rdm friend died LOL he got holy while converting >.>.
So i read a bunch of these posts about logging out and logging back in and getting it. So i figure hey why not, i do it and on first try after logging out i got it :O so yes there is somthing to the reset theory.

And also its posted that you need to be 51 to start this quest, yet i started and finished it at 50. anyways gl to all

Keep at it

i dont mean to be the guy who says "i did it on the 1st go" but i did.

Centered myself as exactly as i could in the pond, used scavenge, voila Old Earring.

I heard some of the horror stories of "it took me 7 hours and still no earring"

sorry to hear that guys, keep at it, the +5 Rattk will be worth it in the end.

Just did this on first try. I centered myself using the map; I'd look at my icon on map and move around to center myself in the pond. I then scavenged, got it first try.
1/6 Attempts

Apparently just like everyone else was saying, standing in the centre is obviously the right thing to do. I was with Coolhand and Rivas doing this and they were wiping out the leeches and yags and I was trying to stay out of the way so I was doing it on the edge. I did this 5 times without any luck. Coolhand said to stand in the middle and voila! I got it that time, so on the 6th try we got it. Just some positive reenforcement to the "standing in the middle" routine that seems to have actually worked.

Logging Trick

I have a feeling there is some merit to the log out-log in
thing when trying to get that blasted earring.

Was up in Castle Oztroja, took my time, silent oils and tonko, positioned myself dead center every time... Nothing. Went 0/8.

Out of frustation I turn to the infinite wisdom of the Allakhazam Forums,
log out in a safe area, logged back in, BINGO!

Thanks to Thrreee(rdm) and the thf (forgot your name >.<;) for killing the mobs and keeping me sneaked when oils ran out!

1/1 as NIN/RNG

88% Moon lightningsday

cleared area of leeches first (got WAR AF2 r/ex item too =D ), logged out, logged back in, then stood in center of pond (there's a small square on the floor if you focus you can see it) and scavenged ^^ got earring first try.

As a side note the CS in Eldieme can be done by any job. It doesn't require you to be RNG.

this took me 5 hours, then i went to change to rng main, took another 3 hours, then came back the next day, and while i was ranting about something, 5 tries later...it drops

dam u SE
Bad Information!!!
# May 27 2006 at 6:02 AM Rating: Good
Just to make a correction, you can get the Fire and Brimstone quest at lvl 50 RNG. I'm not 51 yet myself, yet Perih has given me the quest already, so some changes need to be made! It's right on the sidebar to the left of the walkthrough, but the information on the walkthrough itself is erroneous...

me and a friend just did this together. I was a 52rng/nin he was a 75thf/rng. He pulled the leeches away while i scavenged, then i ran back and helped him kill them, and then he went and scavenged. Both of us were 1/1 on it. Crazy.

i gotta say... being very skeptical, and after 15+scavanges, i tried the log out/log in thing and got it right away. funny part was while i was waiting for scavange to be ready, the coffer popped in the middle of the pond right next to me. funny stuff.
a big pain
