You are to head north to a place called Fei'Yin on the Beaucedine Glacier. Go to the President's Office for a full briefing. Naji will show you in.


The return of the Shadow Lord seems imminent, apparently. Head back to your hometown. when you speak to your mission NPC he will inform you that you are needed at Chateau d'Oraguille. After you arrive at the castle you will get a cutscene, its not over yet, you must speak with Halver before you can continue this mission, he will award you the seal of Fei'Yin (Note: if you cannot recieve seal, make sure your rank points are full, and try zoning out of the chateau then back and talking to Halver). This quest cannot be completed without the seal! When ready start heading to Fei'Yin either by going through Ranguemont Pass, or by getting a Teleport-Vazhl if everyone in your party has the crystal. (for those that dont have a map, when u get to Beaucedine Glacier, follow path north and east past the first tower and east-north more till u find the first down-ramp @ I-8, head down and go directly south and u will find another ramp at I-9, head down, this is the lowest lvl of Beaucedine. head east and then north u will pass another tower at J-8, continue heading north and inside Fei'Yin) At Fei'Yin Tower head to the burning circle on K-8 of the first floor (where you entered). If you dont have a map just head east and south as much as possible. There are MANY MANY things that go aggressive to magic here. On the other hand, you only need SNEAK to run by EVERYTHING in this tower. When you arrive trade the seal to the BC when all 6 members are ready. The boss is the Archlich Taber'quoan with 6-8 minions. Concentrate on the Archlich and once he is dead you are done. There is a level cap of 50 for the boss and only 6 people (one party) can enter at a time. However, you can help out when completed. Go back to your hometown to finish this mission.

The guide says to trade the seal to the burning circle.. But it's a key item?? Is there something else I'm supposed to be trading to the circle?
Is this wrong?

Hey guys, well i was reading this up and i have a feeling it is wrong, for Bastok when you talk to your Gate Guard he will tell you to go to Naji in Metalworks, when you talk to Naji he will hand you the "New Fei'Yin seal"... I had gotten this and went over to Chateau d'Oraguille like this guide says, and i didnt get any CS.. and all Halver will say is "You are within the walls of Chateau d'Oraguille, home of royalty. Conduct yourself accordingly."

So once again i have to think that this is wrong considering for San D'Orians this is what you have to do and for Windurstians they go in to their hometown castle.. so just a heads up if any of you run into the same type of questioning

The minions that are in the main room at the beginning are stronger, but the ones that run into the room later can be killed with a tier II nuke each.

My party wiped twice trying to kite the minions, so on the third run the rdm and I(blm) focused on killing the minions. After the first two were down, we just stood guard at the doorway and killed the others before they even got to the room.
this is a new quest?
