Mission Orders

Find a section of the strange structure on the Konschtat Highlands that drains the energy from crystals.
Bring a faded crystal back to Chief Engineer Cid for analysis.


Note: To be able to accept this quest, you may have to trade up to a stack of crystals to a gate guard.

Speak to any Bastokan Gate Guard to accept this mission. The Gate Guard will tell you to speak with Cid at (H-8) on the second floor of the Metalworks. Speak to Cid and he will give you a crystal.

After receiving the crystal, head to the Crag of Dem at (I-7) in the Konschtat Highlands. Trade the crystal to the Telepoint and you will get a Faded Crystal. Return to the Metalworks and speak to Cid. He will give you the C. L. Report. Key Item and ask you to take it to Ayame.

Speak to Ayame, located at (K-7) of the Metalworks, to complete this mission.

To read the transcripts for this mission, see The Crystal Line Spoilers page.

The same thing happened to me. Cid didn't give me a crystal and I went to the one it says to go to at I-7 and nothing happened. This site seems to have quite a bit of wrong and incomplete information.

I picked up an earth crystal from a tremor ram as I happened to run by it near the Crag. I am trying to trade the earth crystal to the telepoint and it won't take it. What gives?
Faded Crystal

Take any crystal to any crag usually if you are new the closest one is Dem so go there and trade any crystal and you will get a faded crystal. Trade it to the telepoint where you normally pop when teleported to Dem.
Ayame Choice
# May 03 2006 at 10:26 AM Rating: Decent
Does the option you choose when speaking to Ayame affect anything besides her response? eg. line up a future quest?
No trading
# Jan 06 2006 at 3:47 AM Rating: Decent
Okay, I have traded maybe 64 crystals to the guard and am full.. I have the Crag key item,. I have a crystal and am standing on the Tele platform. (yes, the one with the crystal on it.. not the empty or shattered ones). I cannot get the Point to select... or trade... there is a ??? nearby (off platform).. So, what am I doing incorrectly? I have tried trading like normal, but I cannot select it.
Hmmm.. Ideas?
RE: No trading

it's probably just a glitch, run a little into konschtat then run back and try again, and remember "/targetnpc" is your friend

After I finished "Fetichism" and got rank 2 I tried starting this mission and as he said I needed to donate a few crystals. I traded 1 by 1 so i could find out exactly what was needed.

It took me 9 Earth Crystals to get this mission.

Hope that helps.

The missions dont get any easier than this talk to Cid then go get signet from the gaurd at the gate and head out kill sumtin and get a crystal and head to the Craig of Dem in Konchtant Highlands and trade the crystal with the tele crystal and take the faded crystal back to Cid and thats it
Getting next mission
# Feb 06 2005 at 11:00 AM Rating: Decent
Check your profile the one that shows you title, Home Point. There is a bar in that window, think its called rank points?

If you have trouble getting next mission try trading any crystal to the I.M. guys. stacks or just that extra earth can help it fill up.

Never had trouble getting next mission if the bar is full.
To activate

If you're having trouble activating this mission, 2.1, trade 12 Water Crystals to the I.M guard on the left, then it will activate.

I recently had spent my CP, so I trsded a stack of 12 Water Crystals to the guard, and was able to trigger 2-1, and 2-2. Now I need a party for 2-3!

Triggering this mission

I can't seem to trigger this mission. I've been rank 2 for over 2 weeks now, and everytime I talk to cleades, he tells me that the only missions that are available are Fetitchism, which I've completed. I know I've completed it, because it is in my completed missions list on the game. I don't feel like repeating it, just to find out that I still can't continue. Anyone else have this problem?
no bug.

U retrived the Dem Teleport Crystal...not the crystal for the quest..../sigh ok this is what u have to do..Go up to the the telepoint with any type of crystal...Trade the crstal to the telepoint...then u will recieve the faded crystal bring that back to cid and Ayame and it will be complete....Wait till ur a highre lvl to do this...i didnt do it until i was lvl 30...
