You have been given the chance to study the grimoire used by the famous Schultz School of Martial Theory. Your first task is to bring Erlene twelve sheets of Vellum.


Note: To start this quest, you must be at least level 30 and have Wings of the Goddess installed.

Before you start this quest, buy 12 sheets of Vellum to save time. You must complete the quest as a RDM, BLU, SMN, or BLM, because you will need to use one of those jobs' two-hour abilities.

Go to Batallia Downs (S) from the Cavernous Maw in Batallia Downs, which is located at (H-5). Make your way to the entrance of Eldieme Necropolis (S) at (J-10).

Once in the Necropolis, seek out Erlene at (J-8) and talk to her for a cutscene. Once it's done, simply trade her the stack of Vellum for another cutscene. After this next cutscene, you have to activate Chainspell, Azure Lore, Astral Flow, or Manafont and talk to Erlene while the job ability is active. You will receive the key item: Grimoire.

Congrats! You can now become a Scholar!

Is it possible to start this quest as WHM, and then change to another job to use the 2-hour, even if it is not over level 30? Or does the job that uses the 2-hour have to be over level 30 as well?

I'm not 100% certain but I think you have to be one of the jobs stated to complete it. You can however be a WHM when you start it, complete all the stuff, then change to one of the jobs listed at any level and complete the quest.

Ok, so once you do this mission, can you get back to normal time through Battalia or do you have to go all the way to E.Ronfaure or wherever?
One of the easiest to get

I don't know. As long as you have one of the required mage jobs @lv. 30 and the 12 vellum (which are a bit pricey @24k on Remora as of this posting), it was the easiest one yet.

Extremely easy as BLM >55
warped to Batallia [S]
Walked a little south to enter Eld. Necro. [S}
A little past entrance is Erlene.
Trade Vellum

Scholar Unlocked.

Ok I have done this quest and it is very easy! tho it does cost some gil if you dont want to farm rolanberrys and trade them to the NPC in Crawlers nest. at AH a stack cost about 30k and it cost about 17k if you buy the berrys at the NPC in upper jeuno and go to Crawlers nest to trade the NPC. I think its 4 berrys to 1 sheet of vellum. silent oils and prizm powders are a nice item to have while doing this quest aswell.

It's 1 stack per 1 sheet. So make sure you have 12 spaces open. If you can avoid buying at AH please do so! There are NPCs in Port and Upper Jeuno* that sell them. The NPC (Tucker, in Crawlers Nest [S] about halfway down the entrance to the big room) takes them 4 stacks at a time.

*Rolanberries sold by Merchants for about 120 gil each:
Champalpieu (Jeuno Upper G-6)
Chomo Jinjahl (Windurst Waters E-9)
Gekko (Jeuno Port H-8)

Total Cost for all 12 stacks of Rolanberries: 17,280 gil

Sneak and Invisable only needed when going to and from Crawlers Nest [S] and Eldieme Necropolis [S].

this may go without saying to some, but tucker will only trade rolanberries for vellum once you have triggered the scholar quest in eldieme necropolis (s).
