Eperdur needs your help to heal the land. There is a bad presence in the air flowing out of Gusgen Mines and on to the Crag of Dem. Eperdur wants you to seal of the source by replacing the Banishing Seal.


After speaking to Eperdur, head to the Gusgen Mines and go north in the middle passageway, continue down the stairs, and use the middle lever to open the middle door. Proceed through. Go straight and down some stairs again, where you will come to a similar room. This time, take the left (west) door/lever combo. In the next passageway, just keep taking lefts until you come to a hole in the ground. You will now be in a large area (with bombs that agro to sight and magic), go to a shed (bottom left corner of G-8). There will be a ??? on the back wall of the shed. (There are other ??? points in this room, make sure you have the right one.) Examine it. It will give you a message that you have replaced the seal. Return to Eperdur for your reward.

Note: Almost all of the monsters in Gusgen Mines aggro to sound, except Bombs that come later on in the final room which aggro to Magic and Sight.

I soloed this quest last night as a 45BLM/22WHM. I was able to make it to the room (didn't drop down that hole) with the help of a member of the LS telling me which direction to go. I made it there and took care of the banishing seal. As soon as i completed that i started to cast escape before 2 bombs aggroed me. They both registered EP to me. I was able to get off Elemental Seal + Sleepga to sleep them both. Once i did that i was able to cast Escape with 40HP left.

You can solo it as a level 1 Warrior with no sub, so long as you have sneak/invis either cast on you, or you take prism powders/sneak oil.

The only prereq. is the fame.

Just did this as a level 20 WHM, self cast sneak and used a prism powder before going down the hole as described, remember its the ??? on the back of the shack, not the one on the wall you are after.

Thank you, Bonnylad, for clarifying that you have to go down the hole. The instructions above don't say that. :)

It's the little details sometimes.....

You don't actually have to go down the hole, you can walk down the spiral path. If you do fall down the hole, you'll have to walk up the spiral path anyways, so it doesn't matter.

Not sure what my fame level is, but it's high. Went to Gusgen Mines, pulled the left lever, and followed some trails that winded into stairs. There was an open room with shafts and some mobs. There were high levels clapping and throwing fireworks, so I decided to head towards them. They were standing next to a ???, so I thought...Hey, this must be it. I don't quite remember what it talked about when I checked it, but I was confused why it said nothing about the key item Seal. I examined it a few more times, and nothing. Finally, I searched the area a little more. Low and behold, I found a shaft with a ??? on it. Examined it and pressed the Seal. Don't get those two ??? mixed up.

There's no way to tell what your actual numerical level of rank is, just the different phrases you get from the NPC. Obviously just keep doing quests until you notice the NPC telling you something different. Keep trying the repeatable ones, like the one where you give the NPC 2 bat wings, I believe, and that will help your fame if you continously do that.
Can you explain level to me like rank
# Jun 04 2006 at 8:04 PM Rating: Decent
How do i know what fame is all i know is i have to do quest so when i do a certain aamout he says something different like he may have heard the name..and so on .. and too keep doing quest.. god how many more do i have to do ..

No a whm can solo this quite easily. All you need is sneak and invis. Just be carefull on the last floor cause Bombs agro magic aswell as sight so just make sure you put up invis b4 you fall into the hole
RE: help?
# Jan 31 2007 at 1:10 PM Rating: Decent
there is at least one bomb in the main room before the spiral staircase and the hole, invisible before that room, or die like me.

Everything in that cave is sound agro until u drop through the hole. The moment u land there are Bombs around you and if your 36ish you will get aggro because its by sight. I went with my WHM and got it done but i died in the process. Right b 4 i touched the hut.Yay Reraise!Then warp back ur done.

I followed the guide above but noticed some differences. For one, while it might be common sense to some, I'd just like to go ahead and spell it out, YES! you have to drop through the hole to get to the area it's talking about. Also, while I didn't have the map, I just went to the area the guide talked about (G-8, at least where G-8 would be if you counted it out), found the shed, and clicked on the ??? behind it. I got 2 sentences after clicking on it. The first read "You have found the location of the seal" and "You place a seal of banishing on it". Nothing else. Went back to Sandy and got the scroll. Score!

There is more than one way to get to the ??? and going the way of the hole is actually the riskier route. At the first set of doors, take the one on the left. From there follow the tunnel and proceed northwest into a tunnel with railroad tracks. Follow the tracks north through an open area into a tunnel that starts to spiral downwards. Eventually you will level off, go through the first small open area and enter a big cavern. The ??? will be on your left by the shed.

The reason dropping down the first hole isnt safe is sometime there is a high level NM that spawns at the bottom of it.

With Hero fame in San d'Oria I easily got the quest. Teleport-Dem into Gusgen Mines, follow the instructions on alla and find the shack, check the ??? and warp home. Easy 40k on Siren. No aggro at 56SAM/28WAR.
Soloed all.
# Jun 01 2005 at 2:36 AM Rating: Decent
I just soloed all these quests. Dem was by far the easiest, but holla was fun. I did it as WHM 36 just so it would be harder. It was actually easy both ways.... Well, there is about 250k saved, for doing really easy quests.

You have no idea how much I wanted to sell these scrolls though...
did it today

Just to let everyone know. It is smarter to just buy the damn spell when you are 38, then quest it a little later safely and sell it and make all your money back. I paid 20k for this at 38 and just did it at 43 without sneak or invis! Nothing aggro'd me. I walked right in front of the bombs without any problems even though it conned EP. Everything else conned Not Worthwhile except the EP banshee. I will probably make a big profit on the spell.

This whole thing took me exactly 15 minutes from the time I logged into the game at my mog house, tele-demed, got the ???, warped home and logged out.

This guide is actually a little more complex then necessary, as it involves going into the very back of the mines, where the higher level mobs such as Foul Meat live (well, not live, they're undead >.>). There is no need to go to the second set of doors.
I find it much easier to simply open the left door at the first set (not only will you get there faster, the miners will appreciate you not closing the side doors on them ^^). After that door, go through the tunnel, and head to the northwest tunnel in the large room you enter, then simply head all the way north to another tunnel that leads down, and take a left into it. straight down the tunnel, through a small room, and then into the large room where the ??? is from there. Just take a left, and it's behind the shed-looking thing. With this path, sneak isn't quite as necessary, however, there are more bombs there.

Thank you!

Your directions made it extremly easy to find the ???.
I did it as a WHM 39 and ran into no problems at all.
RE: Complex
# Mar 19 2005 at 3:32 AM Rating: Excellent
This guide is the best. Following this, finding the ??? took all of..maybe 2 minutes. It only took that long because I got nervous around the EP High def bombs, being a 49 BLM taru, you never know what can kill you. >.< Rate up~ (^_^)b
