You have volunteered to journey into the Phomiuna Aqueducts to defeat the minotaur. It appears that Nag'molada has set off ahead of you.
Head to (J-3) on the second map. The Minotaur awaits your party there at the end of the hall. Once any member of your party or alliance aggros him he will draw in the entire party or alliance, so take extra care not to do so until everyone is ready. A common strategy is to have one member of the party who is good enough to avoid aggro on the way to travel to the Minotaur alone so everyone else will be drawn in without having to waste time fighting other mobs along the way. It is highly advisable that everyone bring plenty of holy waters, since the Minotaur will use mortal ray and often, not to mention that other Taurus mobs will also use the same move in the event that you end up fighting them. You will not receive a cut scene after defeating the Minotaur, so quickly move out of the room since he will respawn in about ten minutes.
Note: If you leave the zone at this point before completing the rest of the mission, you will have to defeat the Minotaur again in order to complete the mission.
Once you have defeated the Minotaur, head to the Iron Door at (G-8). The Iron Door can be unlocked by either a thief with thief's tools or a bronze key, which drops from the fomor mobs in the area. After passing through the Iron Door, proceed to (C-8) and check the Wooden Stairs. A cut scene with Nag'molada will occur. After the cut scene, climb the ladder and follow the hallway to reach a room with oil lamps. Along the way to the room, you will encounter two taurus mobs in the hallway. It's a good idea to fight only one at a time since they are quite formidable. On the other side of the door, you will encounter a party of fomor mobs, so have sneak up before opening the door. Once inside, go around the shelving and hit the ??? to open a hidden door. This leads you to the candle room.
The candle room puzzle is dependent on the current Vana'diel day. Two torches must be lit at the same time. The torches that must be lit depending on what day it is are:
