Mission Orders

"Hideous statues. Monstrous beasts. The otherworld that lies in between. Could this war-torn land you have been thrust into truly be the outskirts of Jeuno...?"


After clicking the maw in the WG1 - Cavernous Maws mission, you will appear in either Batallia Downs (S), Sauromugue Champaign (S) or Rolanberry Fields (S).

Now you must make a choice.

You must speak to one of three NPCs. There's an NPC representing San d'Oria in Garlaige Citadel (S), an NPC for Windurst in Crawlers' Nest (S) and an NPC for Bastok in the The Eldieme Necropolis (S). The NPC you speak with will determine which mission path you follow.

San d'Oria Path

The San d'Orian NPC, Randecque, is at (I-6) on the second map of Garlaige Citadel (S). He will give you a Red Recommendation Letter that you must take to Mainchelite in Southern San d'Oria (S). You will then have three quests to complete:

Windurst Path

To join the Windurstian forces, you must speak to Kalsu-Kalasu in Crawlers' Nest (S). He will give you a Green Recommendation Letter that you must take to Miah Riyuh in Windurst Waters (S). You will then have three quests to complete:

Bastok Path

To join the Bastokan forces, you must speak to Turbulent Storm in the Eldieme Necropolis (S). He will give you a Blue Recommendation Letter that you must take to Adelbrecht in Bastok Markets (S). You will then have three quests to complete:

One you pick a nation and finish all three quests, you must return to a cavernous maw outside of Jeuno in the past to finish this mission and move on to the next.

To read the transcripts for this quest, see the Back to the Beginning Spoilers page.

how do you join a different nation if you completed all the quests for a nation????? ie: i joined sandy, did all the quests and now u want to join winhurst. i went to cn and spoke with the taru : Kaisu-Kayaeu, and she just says: "Goodluck, and may the stars light sgine your path." wtffff!!!
join another nation

I found out that once you go do all the quests for one nation, as you are a member of that nation now, all you have to do is go to the next starting NPC in whatever town you would like to join. You will have to do the 3 quests, but you DO NOT need the recommondation letter. I know because I tried to get the green recommondation letter to join windhurst forces, and the taru NPC in cn just said some crap aboout 'let the stars guide my path.' I went to windhurst anyway and the mithra NPC by the ah, the starting NPC your supposed to bring the letter too just told me that I need to do some quests to be a memeber of 'the cobras' and gave me snake on the plains.

Hi I'm pretty stuck with trying to find the NPC to sign up with Bastokian forces. I've made 3 different attempts from three different entrances (all linked to the big area that via the map show they can get to J-9) however which ever way i go there's either a ledge or a high wall in the way. Am I missing something here?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

EDIT: Nevermind it's on the NPCs page.... was on the wrong map o_O

I made a mistake and talked to the npc for Bastok and the npc for Sandy. I have a red and a blue reccomendation letter and I can't join either. The npcs keep tellig me that I need to sever ties with the other nation but nothing ever happens when I talk to them. I want to join Sandy and can't. Please help.

Hello Pikko and Exodus. For some reason there is no more info on what to do for WoTG and they all link to bastok rank one mission. It started happenning after u guys went offline last time. I think someone tampered with the site so I'll put up a guide but if i were u I would check out the rest of the guides. Hope u find the jerk who keeps ******** allakhazam.com up=D

Might want to fix the Mission links on the WotG missions...they all link to rank 1 Bastok Missions instead of the next WotG mission from what I'm seeing. ^^;;;

to get to WG3

join a nation
join any nation.

do the quests.
do them all.

then inter a cavernous maw
go in the cavernous maw.

talk to your home-girl cait sith
speak with your home-girl caitsith!

thats all there is in WotG for now
only for now.

more missions come later
more of them later.

i love cait siths choice of of speech.
i love it i do.

Is it just me or are all the misions linking to normal missions not the next WoTG misson? The previous mission one works out but the next mission doesn't go to mission 2 or mission 3 on each one for the next mission button o.O?
