Dkhaaya wants you to bring him an artifact of the Olduum civilization.
Obtained key item: Dkhaaya's Research Journal.
Get yourself some pickaxes and head to Bhaflau Thickets. Go to the (G-7) entrance to Aydeewa Subterrane (same as for BLU flag)
Go to the Excavation Site (H-9) and trade the Pickaxe to the spot until you get a key item. Note: pickaxes may break, so bring several of them with you. The name of the key item will start with "Electro" and there are several different ones, but you can only get 1.
Return to Aht Urhgan Whitegate and talk to Dkhaaya, who gives you a Lightning Band (rare/ex). The band has no stats.
At this point, the quest is finished. However, take your Lightning Band and go to (G-8) of Wajaom Woodlands, where you will find a "Leypoint". Trade the Lightning Band to the Leypoint and you receive an "Olduum Ring" (rare/ex).
Dkhaaya can be found at (G-9) Aht Urhgan Whitegate.

Probably the easiest place to get the key item.
You should note that there are more than one excavation site in the area. Personally, the one on the North East corner of the platform for the BLU quest gave it to me first try.
I, however, broke a whole stack of pickaxes and had to run back to town to get more. I did get a stack and a half of pebbles though. Oh joy. Then I got it on the first try after I returned to excavate.
Save yourself some time and bring a *couple* stacks, just in case.

Looks like there's a few different things you get for mining, but they all work for the quest.
Head to Mt Zhayolm.
Examine the ??? at L-7 for a cutscene.
Trade a pickaxe to the ??? for another custscene.
Zone out and return.
Trade a Mythril Pick to the ???.
Reward: Map of Mount Zhayolm.

-To complete it.
Goto the place where the blue floor is to end blue mage quest with a pickaxe. bring a few, I was 1/7, a friend was 1/1
Pick Axe NPC: (J-7) Kahah Hobichai in Al Zahbi
Excavate the mining point there to get a key item.
Return to the NPC he rewards you with a r-ex Lightning Band, no stats and can't equip.
After you have the Lightning Band go to G-8 in Wajaom Woodlands and trade to the tele to get the ring

Over all really easy quest ^^

Just a suggestion to add the BLU mage quest stuff to the guide. If you're on both you can work on two quests at the same time and get a warp home.
So remember: stay clear of the blue platform till you get you mining item.. its a waste of 30 mins to walk all the way back. You don't have to click on anything to finish the blue quest...the cutscene automatically starts when you step in the area.
He won't be too impressed, but will give you a lightening band as a reward for your effort. Take the Lightening band to (G-8) in Wajaoram Woods and trade it to the Triangle platform, it'll tell you that the ring is reacting to it, and if you're sure you want to bring it closer. Do so, and the platform will "recharge" the ring in it's own special way, giving you your Olduum ring!
Olduum Ring: Echantment Teleport Wajaoram Woods. 1/1 :30[00:00:00/20:00:00]
The ring will teleport you back to the spot at (G-8), and is VERY handy for leveling the new jobs and then teleporting back to Al Zahbi. Just bring Prism Powders and and Silent oils, as there are Marlboro and Tigers in between you and the town.
Rate up! Your description is great!
A friend had been trying to get the BLU quest (he tried the questions about five times unsuccessfully).
I got him through the questions and then we had to go get our items. We got together the next day with our items and he told me there was another quest in the same area. I agreed we should kill two birds with the same trip.
He had me start this quest and off we went to get BLU and work on this quest.
Reaching the area the first thing he said was don't step into the pool. Instead we used F8 and found the Excavation point by the pool. There may be others but it is point right beside the pool.
We hit the point with our pick axes and got the key item. Stepping into the pool, I finished the BLU mage quest and got warped back to the city.
So if you have yet to do BLU and this quest, I recommend doing them together. One trip, two quests, and a free warp back where you can continue the Olduum Ring quest.
