In-Game Text


Despachiaire will give you a letter of challenge from Shikaree X for a rematch at Boneyard Gully. The actual fight (at the same entrance as the mission BCs and ENM) is an uncapped 6-man BC versus Shikaree X, Shikaree Y, and Shikaree Y's Rabbit. Both Shikarees are able to be slept, but the Rabbit cannot be slept even with ES+Sleep II. Like the mission BC, they have massive TP regen and the ability to skillchain. Shikaree Y is part DRK use various weak nukes, while Shikaree X is part NIN and will use Ninjutsu. However, they are very weak, only having perhaps 5000hp each, though not certain about the pet. Completion of this BC nets you the title "Sin Hunter Hunter" and 10000 gil upon exit of the BC.

"Completed" COP means beating Promathia (8-4), getting the ring and doing the final CS? Or is reaching 8-1 good enough?
Entry requirements?

Does anyone know the precise BC (not quest) entry requirements for ALL members of the party?

It's pretty obvious that at least the first person to open the BC requires the key item to start the BC. Does everyone need the key item to enter and help?

Assuming any random person can't enter and help, can someone past 5-3 Mithra PM help? People with sea access? How about key items for the next quest (Requiem of Sin) -- are they sufficient to permit someone to help out on this quest?

If you need to be ON this quest to help, that's a serious design flaw and a major problem for anyone wanting to do the quest. Potential groups for this particular quest might be quite hard to come by. If everyone is required to flag this specific quest to enter, more and more of the server will move past this stage to the Requiem of Sin stage and eventually you'll not only run out of qualified helpers, but out of potential qualified helpers.

Shikaree X is BST/NIN
Shikaree Y is DRK/MNK
Both Shikarees have 4000 HP, the Rabbit has 4500 HP.
X will resummon the Rabbit if you kill it before her.

I flagged this quest while I was on the last part of Chapter 4. I have finished the map for Attohwa Chasm, but I'm not sure if that's significant.

You don't have to be on chapter 8. I got this quest in Chapter 3.

This actually requires more than just CoP, it requires you to have completed CoP (i.e. completed chapter 8-4)

Actually, this is the first of two rematches against the Mithran Trackers. This first one is available once you're on chapter 8 of CoP.

The next rematch, against all 3 trackers, is available once you have completed CoP, and may grant the weapons X's Knife, Y's Scythe, and/or Z's Trident upon completion.

Ah, I see. I did Chapter 8 all in one night, so didn't really have a chance to talk to the old man.

As for Requiem of Sin... have done it a few times. . . do those weapons really exist? >< lol

Simple answer, yes, they do exist. Someone on KI had the dagger drop for them, while attempting to get the trident.

I'd assume they're just extremely rare.

I don't think you have to be done with all the Promathia missions, just the one where you fight the trackers in a BC (5-3 if I'm not mistaken? I'm only on 5-1...). I know I got the quest like this for fighting a rematch with the mammets already.
