You must be level 71 and have a Great Katana skill of 250. Head on over to Norg and talk to Jaucribaix, he will give you the Tachi of Trials and a key item weapon's manual. Your goal here is to take off the latent effect off the Great Katana. This "cleaning" requires you to use weapon skills and perform skillchains. Each weapon skill and skill chain MUST be performed on a mob easy prey to increadibly tough (IT WILL NOT CLEAN ON TOO WEAK MOBS). Each weaponskill and skill chain you perform gives you points for your Great Katana. You must gather 300 points for the latent effect to clear off.
Point system roughly goes like this:
A Solo Weapon Skill: 1 points
Ending a Level 1 Skill chain: 2 points
Ending a Level 2 Skill Chain: 3 points
Ending a Level 3 Skill Chain: 5 points
After cleaning your Great Katana, head over to Norg and trade the Tachi of Trials to Jaucribaix. He will give you a key item map and tell you to head to the Kuftal Tunnel where you must fight a notorious monster. Head on over to the Kuftal Tunnel, there head to the K-7 ~ L-7 area on the second map. There you will find a spot on the ground with a lone Deinonychus raptor mob guarding the area. Examining that spot spawns the notorious monster Kettenkaefer a beetle type monster.
A balanced party of 70+ should be able to take out the beetle, i brought with me a 74 PLD/WAR, 73 BRD/RDM, 70 DRK/THF, 73 BLM/WHM, 74 WHM/SMN, and a 71 SAM/WAR (me) and took it down with ease.
After defeating the beetle, recheck the spot on the ground to recive the key item: "The Annals of Truth". Go back to Norg and talk to Jaurcibaix and he will congratulate you on your efforts and rewards you with Tachi: Kasha!
