To lure the Bearer of Darkness to the Full Moon Fountain, you must collect the three verses of the ancient people. As her guiding star, the Star Sibyl is counting on you to help her decide the path for Windurst's future. The fate of Windurst rests upon your shoulders!
Ro'Maeve: This one you can solo easily, just bring some sneak oils with you (even for mages) as there are magic aggros everywhere in Ro'Maeve. Once there, examine the Qu'Hua Spring at H-6, this is the first place the doll led you to in M8-1. Get the key item Ancient Verse of Ro'Maeve after a cutscene.
Chamber of Oracles: Ride to C-12 of Western Altepa Desert via a tunnel from D-11. Enter Quicksand Caves, sneak is needed throughout this area. You enter at J-11, follow the path to a door with a switch circle before it at I-9. This is weight controlled door, you'll need one Galka or two of the other races or three Tarutarus standing in center of the circle to open the door. At the T-intersection ahead turn left, go to H-7 and open another weight-operated door. Keep going and fall down at E-7 to the lower sand level. Now just hug left and you'll eventually enter the Chamber of Oracles. After a cutscene there you receive the key item Ancient Verse of Altepa.
Temple of Uggalepih: First fight Tonberry Cutters in the temple for an Uggalepih key, it's a fairly common drop. Once you have the key, start from the main entrance to the temple (I-6 of the first map), and keep hugging right until F-5 where you'll zone back into Yhoator Jungle again at H-11 of the jungle. If you don't have the map, just check your position now and then to see if you're on the right track. Only invisible is needed throughout the temple.
Once in Yhoator, walk west a bit and re-enter the temple, this is the map where coffers spawn. You start at I-5 on the map, turn right at the first T. Walk to a wood gate at H-7, drop invisible to open this. Through the gate, turn right, walk to a T at F-7 and turn left there. Head south a bit and turn right, you'll come to a door at E-8. This door needs an Uggalepih key to open. But there are tonberries in front and behind this door, and they can see through doors. So be very careful when dropping invisible to open the door, and quickly re-apply invisible afterwards. Alternatively you can bring some people with you and just kill any tonberries in the room (1 key opens the door for everyone to enter). Once in the room, examine a ??? near the 4 bookshelves down the back for the key item Ancient verse of Uggalepih.
Return to Star Sibyl with the three verses for a cutscene and your final task: a battle at Full Moon Fountain.
You're allowed to have a party of six to beat this two-part BCNM. In the first part of the fight, your party must defeat four Ace Cardians. In the second party, you must fight a manticore and a wyvern simultaneously.
The cardians are the usual BLM/WHM/RDM/PLD combo. But since you have two battles in a row, you should kill three cardians, then sleep the fourth one while you rest HP and MP. The recommended order for killing the cardians is BLM > RDM > PLD > sleep and rest > WHM. Also, save TP on the WHM for the next fight.
After defeating the last Cardian, you begin fighting the wyvern, Tatzlwurm, and the manticore, Yali. Ajido-Marujido also fights, and if he dies you lose, so have the white mage focus on keeping Ajido alive. The best strategy is to fight the Mancitore while kiting the wyvern, then kill the wyvern.
After winning the BC, head to Heavens Tower one last time for Rank 10, 100k gil and the Windurst flag. Congratulations!
