Mission Orders

Brilliant lights, fearsome beasts, a mysterious laboratory... What do all these have to do with the strange boy brought back to Doctor Monberaux's clinic in Upper Jeuno?


This is the first mission in the Chains of Promathia (CoP) expansion mission set, most stumble upon this by accident zoning monsters to Delkfutt's tower and get confused by the new mission log system. This first mission is split in to three parts, when you are done you will notice the mission The Rites of Life in your CoP mission log and below it three slightly indented sections, most mistake these as separate missions.

This first missions is the same as the Zilart as it is entirely made up of a series of cut scenes that introduce you to the storyline. To start the first cut scene (if you haven't stumbled upon it yet) you must travel to Lower Delkfutt's Tower located in Qufim Island. Once you enter, you will be witness to a cut scene involving Jeunonian Scientists trying to operate a strange device. Disaster occurs. The only thing left in the room is the Enigmatic Youth. Wolfgang then sends someone to fetch the doctor.

Once you have observed this cutscene, head to Upper Jeuno, another cut scene will commence involving Wolfgang, Monberaux, and the Enigmatic Youth. Once this cut scene ends, head to area (G-10) and talk to Monberaux, where another cut scene takes place. You will receive a Key Item, the Mysterious Amulet.

Congratulations! You have now completed CoP Mission 1-1.

Checking CoP Mission Status

Does anyone know where you can go to check what CoP mission you're on?

LOL. This is exactly what happened to me. I did stumble upon this doing mission 3-3 for Bastok, and oddly enough, I thought the cutscenes were all part of that particular mission.

At this time, I had absoloutely no clue that I started the CoP missions.

What's the recommended level to atleast be or whatnot?
RE: question
# Jul 29 2005 at 3:39 AM Rating: Decent
It can be done at any level. The only hard part is getting through qufim to delkfutt. You could do it at level one with some powders and oils. [Most things aggro to sound]

Oddle wnough, the soldier NPC in Ru'Lude isn't triggering a cutscene for me. I saw the one in Lower Delkfutt's and then the one in Upper Jeuno, but I'm not getting one in Ru'Lude.

You have to go to the Infirmary (next door to the temple) and talk to the doctor to get a second cutscene in Upper Jeuno (involving the guards) before you get a cutscene from the guards themselves.
Prom Tips
# Mar 30 2005 at 11:04 PM Rating: Decent
Hi i just completed P.Holla and i thought id share some tips since this page is sorta lacking.
1. The Mobs All have True Sight, common knowledge just thought id reiterate it.
2. I suggest not going as an allaince. We had a lot of success just going as a complete party.
3. Must have at least one Rng and One Smn in your party. The Orbs that you must kill to teleport to the next level are range and magic only.
4. Some of the Orbs are duds. Just a warning.
5. Just becarful and treat the mobs as if you were dodging goblins in the dunes. If there not looking at you, you wont get aggroed if you stay some distance away. I also suggest hugging the borders.

During BCNM:
1. Bring at least one poison potion and some echo drops.
2. The NM will take away buffs or a large amount of HP so make sure you have lots of buffs on.
3. Have the Mages stand on the Stairs, and each ranger on opposite sides of the room to stall the NM when the hate changes.

Have Fun! Pretty much all of this I learned from Bihpi so thanks to him.

I have CoP installed, but when i entered Lower Tower i didn't get a cut scene. I wondered if the reason may have been that i had sandy mission 3/3 flagged and was doing it. IF i go back to the tower w/ the mission finished owuld i see this cut scene and be able to enter the Promyvions? Please let me know.

DId you register your CoP? If you didn't register then you won't get the cutscene
RE: Problems
# Mar 19 2005 at 2:26 PM Rating: Decent
You need to head back in. If it doesn not trigger a long cutscene, then you need to double-check that CoP is properly installed.

Ii that does not do the trick, try contacting a GM. There is nothing that should prevent you from seeing it. I saw it as a level 21, with Missions active.
Whats needed?

from the looks of the quest theres alot of fighting to do but i'm just wondering if i should bring a pt with me. theres no lvl details on the mobs so i havent a clue where to start.
# Mar 01 2005 at 8:31 PM Rating: Decent
Myself and two LS friends are about to go check the first level of one of these places out. I have the distinct feeling even though we're just going to fart around we're going to get owned.

This doesn't work for me. It's just a big music file of you splicing together music with FFXI battle sounds. Is it just me, or something?

Hi, I just got the expanison and was wondering if there where any requirements needed to start the quest other then regester CoP. For example to start the first Zilart mission u have to be rank 6+. Being only rank 3 and lv 40 I don't see the shadown lord commin down anytime soon. I would really like to check out the new area though so if someone could get me this info. Thanks :)

No there are no other requirements other than registering the expansion before playing. Once you log int FFXI, zone into Delfkuts Tower in Quafim Island for a really cool cutscene. This is the above first cutscene and the start of this misson.

After that cutscene just continue to follow the above instructions. The other areas included in the expansion you can just zone into without doing this mission(s).

Memory Flux

I believe the Memory Flux is for the quest to get a map of Promyvion - Holla. This is word of mouth, so I don't know if this is a fact, and haven't taken the time to check out if it's true as a map of promyvion A.) Is obviously hard to obtain, B.) Not really necessary, the Memory Receptacles are easy to find, and C.) I'm never going back there once I beat it. ;D

Good stuff!
# Oct 13 2004 at 5:20 PM Rating: Default
Finally some decent cutscenes. I'm only rank5 so perhaps there will be better ones from the old stuff but this seemed to have that FF7 feel to it. Sure am looking forward to killin in some new areas but hope they are better than Movolopis.

Anyway ,, If anyone on Ramuh is looking to do these in the next week or 2 let me know

Skywise -44rdm 35blm are the jobs im geared up to d lvl with at the moment for at the moment ^5

Is there a way to replay the first CoP scene?

cause i really would like to check it aggain :)
RE: Starting Scene
# Jan 03 2005 at 5:31 PM Rating: Excellent
yeah...you dont waste a crystal when you do trade to the footprint... he doesnt take it, you just watch the Cutscene again. This can be done with any of the Gob Footprints in areas that you have seen one or more cutscenes in. There is some advice! I saw the BST one from Qufim, the Windy Mission 1-3 in Sarutabaruta, and this one twice. Hope this helped you out!
