Mission Orders

Something is afoot. Travel to the Grand Duke Palace to learn details of recent events.


Travel to the Grand Duke Palace to learn details of recent events. After talking to people in the palace, Pherimociel, a ducal guard, will trigger a cut scene with two other ducal guards.

Talk to, Rainhard and High Wind, the two guards guarding the Audience Chamber. No one is allowed inside. They talk of an Alchemist waiting in the Duke's house. Talk to the Alchemist and he will mumble something about Emptyness and Promyvion.

Go to a Shattered Telepoint and examine the shattered telepoint, it will give you the option to enter. You will be transported to the Hall of Transference.

Inside the Hall are two apparatuses. The one on the right does nothing when examined. The one on the left triggered a cutscene that openes the Cermet Door. You go through the door and are transported to Promyvion. There is a teleporter to send you back to the Hall of Transference. After visiting Promyvion, if you return to the Alchemist in the Duke's House, he tells you what he knows and talks about creating Anima from creatures in Promyvion.

In order to enter a different Promyvion area to the first one you entered you must have either beat the boss empty or have memory erased by returning to the left apparatus, this will allow you to have free choice of which Promyvion area you want to enter again. It is important that you do not erase your memory before you have spoken to the Alchemist in the Duke's House about creating animas otherwise you will not be able to accept his service because you have no memory of entering any Promyvion area. Once you have conversed with the Alchemist regarding animas you are free to erase your memory at your own will.

After defeating any one of the three Promyvion bosses this mission is complete and you will need to do the other two as part of the next mission.

What's the big deal about SMN in promies
# Jan 27 2008 at 9:12 PM Rating: Decent
Okay I don't know what the big deal is about having SMN in promies I went to all the different ones several times each with SMN x2 in pt and we wiped when I finally beat them the setups were
Dem was my favorite after wiping so many times with real tank classes felt great to go in with DRGs as the tanks and kick *** NO deaths and was awesome to prove everyone wrong who said drgs had no place in promy ha eat that XD
just goes to show you that as long as you take the time to get animas you really don't need strict guidlines like you have to have SMN or jerks who say ewww drg no what a joke and Dem we just missed the record by 3 seconds too Whatever jobs are used just bring animas and mages bring the drinks and always have reraise these things are cake
new record
# Nov 28 2007 at 8:25 AM Rating: Decent
me and my party just cleared this one last night on the fairy server and set a new record at four minutes flat. we had two smn in the party, which made things so much easier the general rule for promys as i have learned is to have one whm and two smn. we went in with a blm/whm, smn/whm, smn/whm/ whm/blm, nin/war, and war,pld and owned it. astral flow soon as we entered then another astral flow when it was at 50% and we rocked it FTW
Anyone still doing these?

anyone know any LINKSHELL in CARBUNCLE that still makes PROMYVION RUNS? if you do please tell ^^

First, before you go in, remove all buffs. It can absorb buffs which makes it stronger. Food and songs seemed to be ok. I found food and medicines extremely important.

Is this true? Also, I only Nin/War War/Nin make better tank then Paladin? Should I go in as Paladin or War/Nin?

I am leader of Astralytes LS in Bismark Server. I swear i have faught these promys 100x now for everyone in my ls and i continue to do them for new ppl join. They have now become pretty easy in that i guess my ls is lucky that i am a smn. From my experience having a smn and at least 2 war's is a golden win... also make sure you have a psycho and hystero anima; about 2 each. Never have i had to use an alliance to make it to the 4th floor, honestly the more ppl you take the longer it may take because of agro and fighting. It is nice to have a whm who has reraise and can heal when smn 2hr. So basically i apply the same rule to all of them.. keep animas on it, and have everyone 2hr @50% if they have a 2hr that will help. Also if a member dies before the NM Hp is @50% save your 2hr and just zone out, raise, rest, and try again.... good luck.

I just completed Promy-Dem and it was very easy allot of waiting because we went through with out fighting a thing besides the rec of memory then we got to the boss and set the record time our pt set-up was
[blue]-WAR/NIN X3

It was a very good set-up so i would recomend something like this.
Promy Holla - Beaten First Try
# Oct 30 2006 at 5:38 AM Rating: Decent
Just completed holla then with a party setup of:
DRG/THF (me)

we didn't get wiped once getting to the holla spire thank goodness and, we harvest 11/12 recollections that we could to get animas, which came in real handy. The WARs used Mighty Strike from start as well as us taking turns using animas every 30 seconds. Once the Wreaker was at 50% SMN's unleashed 2hrs as well as me for HP boost, and took the Wreker down from 50-0 quickly.

We are gonna do the other Promy runs tomorrow.
wreaker... kill... death... 0/2 on holla...

I did a promy mission with a BLU/NIN when i was NIN/WAR. It was Promyvion-Dem.

The only reason we were there originally was for the ENM, so our SMN AF'd during the ENM. After beating that, we realized we had a few people who needed the mission (including me). So, anyway, we decided to try the mission without our Summoner's Astral Flow. I still had Mijin Gakure, and I THINK our RNG still had EES, but I'm not positive, and our WHM still had benediction.

So we enter the battlefield and buff up. our SMN, who is pretty much a Promyvion God, decides he will use Fenrir, and use the BP that lowers enemies Acc and Eva. This worked like a champ. I was able to blink tank it extremely well because its Acc was so horrible after that. The BLU/NIN also helped me tank quite a bit, because he would frequently pull hate with his powerful spells, and go through 3-4 shadows before I could get hate back.

We slowly whittle it down to about 20%, at which point our RNG lets off EES, which brings him down to about 8% or so. The boss goes nuts on the RNG of course, and he dies, but he's able to hold on til the boss has about 5% left. At this point, the boss turns back on me, and the SMN and WHM are getting very low on MP. I still have my 2 hour left, but at this point it would be worthless because my HP is hovering between 1/2 and 1/4 full. Finally, the WHM uses benediction, and I realize that this is probably the last chance I will have to mijin Gakure @ full hp, so as the boss turns to go wail on the WHM, I blow up for a whopping 284 damage, and we get the win :)

As for the BLU, I would say they are very useful as DD's during promies. That BLU was probably the only reason we were able to get the boss's HP down so fast without the use of a SMN 2 hour. I would recommend subbing Ninja, just because you will probably be getting hate a lot, and you're physical spells are fairly short range, and the less the WHM has to cure, the better. I was quite impressed with our BLU's performance that day.

I just got done doing Dem, we had all 6 of us get Hysteroanima ahead of time. Than i knew it was a good sign when all of our memories were good the first time.

We got to the boss, i was rng so i stood back and just spammed arrows while melee hacked away at it. Once the boss hit 50% the first melee used his anima, we went down the line all 6 of us, every 30 seconds. He never used fission or sleepga on us, nothing at all because of the anima.

battle time was 8 min, but no1 got hurt at all due to blink tanking it and the anima.

For those that are about to do this, take the time to farm "recollection of pain" is what i belive it was called, than warp to Jeuno and get the anima made, it is well worth it and makes the boss very simple.

Just tried this about 30 min ago.

-- I think was war/nin or was blm/whm

Anyway Fight was going well at first 3 of us had the Animas, we had him down to 1/4 health then he did his sleepaga. Right after that everyone's poison pots wore. Then he did it again. From that point it was game over. Me being the whm I died shortly after. Before all this everyone had burnt their two hours. I still had benediction. Well I had the bright idea of using my re-raise then using bene. Well as soon as I raised he slept us again... I was kinda yelled at about that but, everyone used their two hours and items. It was kinda pointless unless we would warp out and do it again anyway.

Some advice make sure the melee's fight towards the center of the room and not up against the mages.

Just did this. We went as a sort-of cookie cutter PT:

NIN/WAR (me)

So the first floors were incredibly easy, we got lucky and got in the first time. The fourth floor we had a few aggros. The first time, we let the WAR die, the mob despawned, raise, continued. Wanderer aggro then, we killed it (only a T) but it wasn't the easiest of fights. Then we had a whole wipeout, 4 people dead. WHM had reraise earring on, got everyone to the castle, and everything was good.

Inside it was pretty easy. We spent the first few minutes doing full buffs and resting to full MP. Then we went in, I voked, we popped a Psychoanima. So in those 30 seconds, we got it down to about 80%. Blink tankers watch out, this thing attacks pretty fast. The next 20% just kind of passed with us whacking, etc. At 60% the SMN 2hr'd. First Diamond Dust took about 20% of it. Between this we popped a Hysteroanima, hopefully delaying the Offspring pop. So we kept on whacking, etc. I found it pretty hard to keep hate, but hopefully no one noticed <_<. Anyway toward the end it had spawned the Offspring but they were just kind of standing there, I dunno if they were attacking someone else or not. I was about to use my Terroanima so we could regroup for 30 seconds when the second Diamond Dust killed it. So yeah, really easy with SMNs.

just finished promy-dem last night. hres pt setup and how e won:

RDM/WAR (me)

we had 2 LS party's doing it, so we had 12 person alliance to get to the spire. only 1 death on the way up, no worries. killed all aggro pretty easily.

once we got into the spire, alliance disbanded, and we went in.

everyone buffed, BST sent his pet onto the boss as we all healed our MP. When BST pet was dead, Nin and war charged in and shared tanking. i as RDM enfeebled, and SC'd Fusion (Red Lotus Blade >> Raging Axe) with the war/nin. magic bursted with Fire from me, and Fire II from Ifrit.

fought like a normal party till about 50% where he started spitting out offspring. i ended up tanking all the offspring i found, with voke + gravity + dia. sleep FAILED 4/4 times on the offspring.

at that time, WAR used his Hysteroanima on the boss, and i used mine right afterwards. we saved the Terroanima for the offspring, just to keep me alive a bit longer.

battle went smooth, WHM ended up uses Benediction, because we were all runnign a little low on MP. SMN used 2h, but i really dont remember seeing it go off at all.

at about 10%, i ended up dieing from the SIX offspring attacking me (only hit for like 10-25dmg a piece on me as RDM/WAR), WHM had died from benediction, so the SMN just main healed till we dropped the boss. finished CS, raised up from the other pt, and Promyvion-Dem is complete!

My LS just beat Promyvion-Dem about 2 hours ago. ^^
Our setup:
BLM/WHM (me),

We got to the fourth level with 2 deaths from aggro (raised), and then we allied up with another party that was there, to get to the Spire of Dem. Ended up fighting a couple empties on the way from aggro but we all made it to the Spire without death on 4th floor. :D

Then we killed the alliance to make strategy. Once we were rested and had a game plan, we went in and slaughtered the Progenerator. xD

Battlefield Clear Time: 06 minutes, 07 seconds.

Party Preparation
# Sep 28 2005 at 5:38 AM Rating: Decent
Hehe just a thought, make sure ALL of your party members are prepared for a fight. In my Holla experience, we zoned into the BCNM. Our setup was me(drg/war) a war/nin, a whm/blm, a drk/thf, a smn/whm, and a rng/nin. We felt pretty good because it was Firesday and the monster was Ice based, except that our SMN didnt have Ifrit x.x
Still got it to 5% health though, than died ><

The moral:
