Requirements: 230+ staff skill to start quest, Lv.71 to wield Trial weapon.
Once you meet the requirements, go talk to Shantotto in Windurst Walls. She will give you the Pole of Trials which you must use until the latent effect disappears. *NOTE: The actual text will not disappear, simply the effects* If you unequip and re-equip the Pole, and you do not get the bonus stats, you are done.
How to remove the latent effect: -You must perform Weapon Skills and Skillchains on monsters that con Easy Prey or higher. -You must accumulate 300 total points. (1 point for a solo weaponskill, 2 points for creating a Lv.1 Skillchain, 3 points for creating a Lv.2 Skillchain)
You cannot create any Lv.3 chains at this point using a staff, so those are the only options you will have. So at the absolute minimum, you will need to do 100 Lv.2 Skillchains on Easy Prey+ monsters to remove the latent effect.
Once you no longer receive the latent effect bonus, head back to Windurst Walls and trade the Pole of Trials back to Shantotto. She will take the weapon from you and give you a Map to the Annals of Truth Item and tell you to head to Ifrit's Cauldron.
Take the East entrance of Ifrit's Cauldron. If you are familiar with the shortcut to the Cloister of Flames, it will help here. Make a right at the first junction, head past the first Flame Spout, straight through the cave and follow the path around the crater to the drop point at I-7/8. Enter the cave immediately to your left. Sneak and Invis will be needed the entire time. Follow the path until you reach a large room with Bombs, Bats, and Ash Lizards (H-7). 2 ???s will be in this room. The ??? in the middle of the lava bridge will be the one that triggers the NM Skeleton Cailleach Bheur.
The best place to camp is at the far tunnel, past the 2 ???s. Clear the 2 bats and the bomb if necessary, then pull to the tunnel. You have 16 minutes before enemies start respawning.
Once the NM is dead, re-examine the ??? to obtain the Annals of Truth Item. Bring this back to Shantotto and you have yourself a shiny new Weaponskill!
