You must have a Great Axe skill of at least 240 and be at least level 71 to begin this quest. If you're ready to accept the mission, head to Bastok Metalworks and speak with Iron Eater.
He will hand you a key item as well as a great axe, the Axe of Trials. He instructs you to master the axe by weakening it's powers, which roughly means you need to remove the latent effect off of it by participating in skillchains and performing weapon skills. The number of SCs and WSs you need to do before the sword is sufficiently weakened goes by a strict point-based system:
Solo-WS or opening any level SC: 1 pt.
Close LVL1 SC: 2 pt.
Close LVL2 SC: 3 pt.
Close LVL3 SC: 5 pt.
- Total Needed: 300 pt.
Participate in SCs until you've accumulated enough points for the latent effects on the Axe of Trials to dissappear. (Note: the text on the item description will remain, but the effects will expire)
After the latent effects are off of the Axe of Trials, return to Iron Eater and trade him the Axe of Trials. He will hand you yet another key item and tell you to proceed to the Sanctuary of Zitah.
Head to (F-6) and touch the ??? there. An NM treant named Greenman will appear. Defeat him. Once Greenman is dead, check the ??? again to receive yet another key item.
Now head back to Metalworks and speak w/ Iron Eater again. After a short cutscene, you will receive your long-awaited prize: Steel Cyclone!
