Adventuring Fellow Guide

Adventuring fellows are non-player characters which players may summon to aid their own character. Different from the alter egos summoned via the use of trust magic, fellows are not included in the party list, but are more like pets. Even so, they do count for the maximum party member limit.

[edit] Obtaining the Signal Pearl

The Signal Pearl, which is required to be able to summon a fellow, is obtained after completing the following quests, in order:

  1. Unlisted Qualities
  2. Girl in the Looking Glass
  3. Mirror, Mirror

[edit] Names

When completing the quest Unlisted Qualities, a name will be chosen from the following list. This is the first step leading towards what the fellow will look like.

Hume Hume Elvaan Elvaan Tarutaru Tarutaru Mithra Galka
Feliz Amerita Chanandit Armittie Balu-Falu Cupapa Fhig Lahrv Durib
Ferdinand Beatrice Deulmaeux Cadepure Burg-Ladarg Jajuju Khuma Tagyawhan Dzapiwa
Gunnar Henrietta Demresinaux Clearite Ehgo-Ryuhgo Kalokoko Pimy Kettihl Jugowa
Massimo Jesimae Ephealgaux Epilleve Kolui-Pelui Mahoyaya Raka Maimhov Mugido
Oldrich Karyn Gauldeval Liabelle Nokum-Akkum Pakurara Sahyu Banjyao Voldai
Siegward Nanako Grauffemart Nauthima Savul-Kivul Ripokeke Sufhi Uchnouma Wagwei
Theobald Sharlene Migaifongut Radille Vinja-Kanja Yawawa Tsuim Nhomango Zayag
Zenji Sieghilde Romidiant Vimechue Yarga-Umiga Yufafa Yoli Kohlpaka Zoldof

[edit] Face

  • There are eight face types for each race and sex combination, and two hair colors for each of those face types. As you speak with Kuah Dakonsa with the Unlisted Qualities quest active, she will provide you with a list of appearances for the selected Race/Sex of your NPC. This list will be shown with numbers from 1 to 8 with A and B for each number, with numbers being the style and letters being the color. You will use this list to select the appearance of your NPC. You can select an option to view it or cancel the selection and choose another. See Adventuring Fellow Faces for more information.

[edit] Personality

There are twelve personalities, six for each gender. Seek Red Ghost for your next destination~ Your fellow's personality determines their dialogue (in the field, at the Rendezvous Point, and during quests) as well as their headgear options. They may also have an effect on spell casting when set to "Healer." The personalities are:

Using a Metamorphose Balsam or Metamorphose Perfume will temporarily alter their personality, but only on the field and doesn't apply elsewhere.

[edit] Adventuring With a Fellow

Fellows can be summoned in most areas, with some exceptions. To call them in Wings of the Goddess areas, one must use the Cavernous Maw in Sauromugue Champaign (S) to have a specific cutscene play (only needed once).

If an area is entered where fellows cannot be summoned in, they will be dismissed, and need to be called out again manually.

[edit] Level Limits

Upon first obtaining a Signal Pearl, fellows start at level 30, with a maximum level limit of 50. As the bond with a fellow and their level increase, it will be possible to undertake quests that will will increase the limit as follows:

To have fellows obtain as much experience points as possible:

  • At (their) level 30, one must defeat enemies that are at least four (4) levels higher than the fellow is.
  • From levels 31 to 50, the enemies must be at least three (3) levels higher.
  • From levels 51 to 55, four (4) levels higher.
  • From levels 56 to 60, five (5) levels higher.
  • From levels 61 and above, six (6) levels higher.
Mob Level Difference NPC Level 30 NPC Level 31-50 NPC Level 51-55 NPC Level 56-60 NPC Level 61+
0 200 xp
+1 240 xp 250 xp 260 xp
+2 280 xp 300 xp 320 xp
+3 320 xp 400 xp 400 xp
+4 400 xp 500 xp 480 xp
+5 500 xp 560 xp
+6 600 xp
  • Here is a small list of examples that could be your targets.

[edit] Fighting with your Adventuring Fellow

[edit] Trick Attack

  • Your Adventuring Fellow can be Trick Attacked and receive the damage bonus it gives from striking behind a party or alliance member.

[edit] In Parties/Alliances

  • It is possible to call an Adventuring Fellow in an alliance or a party.
  • Adventuring Fellows count towards the maximum party limit, so no party can have more than 3 Adventuring Fellows present. However, this only applies to members in the same area, so a party of 6 can have an Adventuring Fellow in their party as long as one of the players is in a different area.
  • Every new party member, including new Adventuring Fellows, that are invited into a full, 6-member party will kick out one of the Adventuring Fellows, starting with the oldest.

[edit] Experience Point Reduction

  • When you fight with your Adventuring Fellow you will receive a 30% reduction in your experience points. Your party will not experience any exp reduction.

[edit] Spellcasting

  • Your Adventuring Fellow will cast level appropriate spells (if set to Healer, Soothing Healer, or Stalwart Shield setting), but will only cast single-target spells on him-/herself and you. Your Adventuring Fellow will not cast spells on other members of your party or alliance.
  • Your adventuring fellow will lose access to lower-level Protect and Shell spells as his/her level rises. For example, if Protect IV is available, your fellow will never cast Protect, Protect II, or Protect III again, even if Protect is needed and your fellow has enough MP for a weaker Protect spell, but not for the highest tier known.

[edit] Monster Aggression

  • Your Adventuring Fellow cannot be aggroed by monsters, but can cause them to link.

[edit] Targeting Your Fellow

  • Your Adventuring Fellow can be cured and buffed by other party and alliance members as if it were not a member of the party or alliance.
  • Your Adventuring Fellow can also be targeted for party-only buffs (such as Refresh) and will be affected by multiple-target party buffs that you cast (such as Protectra), but not by other party or alliance members.
  • The macro pronoun <ft> can be used to specifically target your fellow.
  • If there is a party member with the same name as your adventuring fellow, your spell will target the party member.
  • Also works with a <stpc> targeting.
  • Also works with <st> targeting.
  • Adventuring Fellows seem to be treated the same as monsters in the sense of being cast on; so it is highly recommended to skill up Healing and Enhancing magic on your Adventuring Fellow as the spells being cast on them will have the same effect as if one were to hit a high level monster with a low skilled weapon. It is also possible to skill up on another players fellow; so it is a good idea to aim for the highest level NPC you can find to skill up on.
  • You adventuring fellow will not be affected by Blood Pact: Ward effects.
  • Your Adventuring Fellow is affected by Avatar's Favor effects.
  • SAM Job Ability Shikikoyo can be used on your fellow. If in battle, /ja "Shikikoyo" <ft> is how you macro it.
  • You can use Devotion on your fellow.
  • Corsair rolls will buff your Fellow as long as they are within range.
  • Your fellow is affected by buffs you use through Diffusion as a Blue Mage.

[edit] Experience Loss

  • Your Adventuring Fellow does not lose experience points when he or she is knocked out.

[edit] Weapon Skills

  • Which weapon skill is used is more or less random, but generally favors the highest available weapon skill. For example, Sword wielding Fellows have been observed to not use Fast Blade or Burning Blade in combat very often, but will prefer Red Lotus Blade or stronger.
  • That being said, your Adventuring Fellow may still use even Fast Blade at lower levels.
  • If your TP is at least 50% at the time their TP hits 100%, your Adventuring Fellow will wait for your TP to reach 100% to unleash a weapon skill, making it possible to skillchain. Attacker and Fierce Attacker style NPCs will time their weapon skills better. If your Adventure Fellow's TP reaches 300%, it will immediately use a weapon skill regardless of your TP.
  • Your Adventuring Fellow has an A+ rank skill, and essentially can use any weapon skill available at his/her level for his/her equipped weapon (except Mythic weaponskills). Consuming homemade food prepared by your Fellow will temporarily give them access to all weapon skills (regardless of level).
  • By default, your fellow will not use area of effect weapon skills: Spinning Attack/Cyclone/Circle Blade/Shockwave/Spinning Scythe/Earth Crusher. However these weapons skills can be enabled for your Fellow to use by visiting a Rendezvous Point.

[edit] Two-hour

  • Your Adventuring Fellow gains a "two-hour" ability called "Blessed Radiance" after successfully completing the Mirror Images quest. The ability will be used when both you and your NPC are in red (<25%) HP. This ability does a significant amount of damage and grants him/her Invincible status. It can be used once per call. If you summon your NPC and they use it, you can dismiss and call using a tactics pearl, and Blessed Radiance will be available again, even if two hours have not passed.

[edit] Chat Filters

  • To see the damage your Adventuring Fellow does from attacks, make sure the chat filter "Damage taken by foes" is turned off.
  • To see the damage your Adventuring Fellow takes from enemy attacks, make sure the chat filter "Attacks by foes" is turned off.
  • If your Adventuring Fellow is set to Shield or Stalwart Shield, they will use Provoke to maintain enmity.
  • If they're set to Attacker, Healer, Fierce Attacker, or Soothing Healer, they will still use Provoke if your HP drops into the red.

[edit] Super Kupowers

[edit] New Signal Pearls

  • If you have recently received a new signal pearl (because you threw it away) and lose it again, you will not be able to receive another one until the next midnight JST (Japanese time).

[edit] Adventuring Fellow Bond

The information for max mobs and max time your Adventuring Fellow can fight alongside you should now be correct.

  • Similar to Reputation, your Bond with your Adventuring Fellow can be strengthened.
  • Each time you use your Signal Pearl or Tactics Pearl, you increase your Adventuring Fellow Bond by 1.
  • Calling your Adventuring Fellow at a Rendezvous Point and selecting the option "Let's chat." increases your Adventuring Fellow Bond by 1 (once per real-life day).
  • Throwing away your Signal Pearl decreases your Bond by 5.
  • You can also increase your max Adventuring Fellow Bond by completing the following quests:
  1. Past Reflections
  2. Blighted Gloom
  3. Blessed Radiance
  4. Mirror Images
  • The strength of your bond will make new weapons available to your Adventuring Fellow, will allow you to increase your Adventuring Fellow's level cap, will allow for additional headgear options, and will increase the time that your Adventuring Fellow will fight by your side.
  • Currently the only known way to decrease your Adventuring Fellow Bond is by dropping your Signal Pearl.

[edit] Adventuring Fellow Combat Styles

After your Adventuring Fellow Bond increases to 5, you can set your Adventuring Fellow to be one of three types at a Rendezvous Point.

After completing the Chameleon Capers quest, you will have the opportunity to teach your fellow additional combat styles via three Tactics Manuals. In order to teach your adventuring fellow all the available combat styles, the manuals can be traded with or borrowed from other players. These new combat styles have the same features as the basic styles while expanding your adventuring fellow's repertoire.

  • Soothing Healer - Heals and remedies ailments more frequently. Will also use enfeebling magic more intelligently and has Auto Regen.
This style requires the T.M. Endurance item.
Note: Healer and Soothing Healer will place their partners in top priority, whether it be curing or removing ailments.
  • Stalwart Shield - Same as normal "Shield", but now will also Cure self when under 80% HP. Auto Refresh is included.
This style requires the T.M. Fortitude item.
Note: Stalwart Shield acts as a Paladin with a Warrior support job. Your fellow will therefore use spells according to a Paladin's level. Also, at level 50 your NPC will acquire Double Attack. Stalwart and normal Shield NPCs will also prioritize you when using Provoke.
  • Fierce Attacker - Uses additional Weapon Skills, will notify you when at 90% TP, and Double Attack happens more frequently.
When your NPC is set to Fierce Attacker, he or she will no longer use weaker versions of existing weapon skills(for example: Will never use Heavy Swing but instead will use Full Swing. Will stop using Starburst but will instead use Sunburst)
This style requires the T.M. Might item.
Note: Attacker and Fierce Attacker act as a Warrior with a Monk support job. At level 20, your NPC will gain Counter. At level 25, he or she will gain Double Attack. It also means that when equipped with Hand-to-Hand, they will have a chance to Guard.
  • To use the manual, talk to your NPC at the Rendezvous Point with it in your inventory. When you talk to the Rendezvous Point again, the new job is available to be selected from the job style menu. (It is important to note the Manuals won't work if they are in your bazaar).
  • Tactics Manuals are not consumed upon use which allows you to keep it.
  • All three Tactics Manuals are only Rare items and can be traded to other players or sold through Bazaar.
  • Your NPC may use the manuals before you defeat the NM, even before you start the quest, provided you have sufficient bond and the manual in your inventory upon visiting a rendezvous point.
  • If your bond decreases to less than 5 (by throwing away your Signal Pearl), you will not have the option to change combat styles until your Bond reaches 5 again.

Regardless of class, your NPC will Provoke when your HP is in red.

[edit] Obtaining the Tactics Pearl

You must first have completed Chains of Promathia mission 1-1 The Rites of Life and hold or have held the Mysterious Amulet before your NPC will offer this quest.

1. Upon obtaining sufficient Adventuring Fellow Bond (35+ Fellow Bond), summon your NPC at a Rendezvous Point and select the "Let's talk about quests" option to hear a message about the Emptiness. Varying with the Adventuring Fellow Personality, the message will be similar to this:

Actually, I've been requested to carry out an investigation of the Emptiness. It appears to be a most complicated phenomenon. If I may, I would like to have your assistance in this matter. I have no strict timetable, so please come along when you are ready.
  • As of the June 2008 version update, you will now receive the key item Emptiness Investigation Note upon taking this quest so that you can confirm whether it is active or not.
  • Note: Your NPC will only mention the Emptiness once per week, but will not mention it again until you have completed the quest.
  • Note: You cannot call your NPC in Promyvion unless you have 33 points of bond, despite the fact that your NPC may mention this quest before you have 33 points of bond. The cap of bond is 30 until you finish the Past Reflections quest.
  • In order to hear this speech, you must have access to the Promyvions (See "The Rites of Life" and "Below the Arks").

2. Enter Promyvion - Dem, Promyvion - Holla, or Promyvion - Mea. There is a Rendezvous Point close to where you'll appear, check it, and you will see a cutscene. After this, your NPC will be summoned.

  • It is not necessary to have the Signal Pearl with you to start or complete this quest.

3. You will have 45 minutes with your NPC to find a "???." There are a total of 5 ??? for this quest.

4. When you kill monsters in Promyvion, your NPC will gather experience. Note that even though Strays do not count towards your own exp, they do towards your NPC's kill count. So they're a super-easy way to get max mob kills.

  • For your Fellow to gain the maximum amount of 1,200 experience points from the monsters, you need to only kill 30 of them. After that, an additional bonus will be determined by which floor(s) you examine the ??? on.
  • On Floor 1, your NPC will receive a maximum of 1,500 exp.
  • On Floor 2, your NPC will receive a maximum of 2,400 exp.
  • On Floor 3, your NPC will receive a maximum of 3,300 exp.
  • On Floor 4, your NPC will receive a maximum of 4,800 exp.
  • If you are able to travel to both parts of Floor 3, your NPC will receive another bonus 900 exp, for a maximum of 5,700 exp.
  • To maximize experience points you must examine the ??? on each floor and answer no.
  • Calling the fellow inside Promyvion and experience gained after ending the climb and investigation, (such as the 4,800 bonus; not experience points from normal monsters killed) will not add any Fellow Points with Ajahkeem.
  • Your Fellow cannot level up as a result of the EXP gained upon completion of this quest.
    • Your fellow can, however, level up as a result of killing monsters while completing the quest. In other words, when killing monsters in Promyvion and earning EXP for the NPC as you would normally do in outside areas, your NPC might level up if it was near its next level.
  • Note that the floor modifiers are cumulative. For example, if you were to check floor 2 but answer no when your NPC asks if you want to go now, then continue on to click the ??? on floor 3, your fellow's experience gain would now be (Monsters Killed x 40) + (900 from floor 2) + (900 from floor 3).
Spire Floor 1 ??? Locations Floor 2 ??? Locations Floor 3 ??? Locations Floor 4 ??? Locations
Holla H-7 G-8 E-6, L-5 L-11
Dem J-12 E-9 F-6, G-12 K-9
Mea F-4 F-10 E-7, K-9 I-5
Total Experience Points (# of Monsters Killed x 40) + (300) (# of Monsters Killed x 40) + (900) (# of Monsters Killed x 40) + (900) (# of Monsters Killed x 40) + (1500)
  • Getting to the ??? on the first floor of any Spire is relatively easy to solo, Mea generally seen the easiest.
  • Your Fellow will still receive bonus experience points for killing the Too Weak you encounter, including Strays.
  • To get deeper, defeating the Memory Receptacles on at least floors 1 and 2 with only your Fellow accompanying you, is possible with most, if not all jobs. For tips on dealing with them to climb each floor solo, see the Shadows of the Departed article.

5. When you find the ??? and check it, you will get the option to end or continue the investigation. If you choose to end it, you will also have the option to warp back to the entrance of the Promyvion. After that, your Fellow will get the experience points for the monsters you've killed, with the bonus from the floor(s).

6. Return to a Rendezvous Point in any city and call your NPC.

7. Your NPC will give you a Tactics Pearl, which will allow you to summon your NPC every 10 minutes. If you investigated to at least floor 2, he/she will also give you a food item based on the NPC's personality, as with the Mixed Signals quest (must have quest completed to receive food item).

  • Calling your NPC with a Tactics Pearl is the same as if called with the Signal Pearl.
  • You can only obtain one Tactics Pearl every week (resets after the Conquest Tally)
  • You must drop your old Tactics Pearl before you can get a new one. Dropping your Tactics Pearl will not lower your NPC affinity.
  • You must speak to your NPC about quests before going back to the respective Promyvion.
  • You must repeat the Promyvion quest.
  • If Japanese Midnight passes after you've called your NPC at the Rendezvous Point in Promyvion and you were unable to finish, you must zone out of Promyvion and back before calling your NPC at the Rendezvous Point.
  • If you lose connection you will fail the quest, unlike calling your NPC normally you wont get it back after relogging.
  • If you zone from Promyvion-Dem/Holla/Mea to the Spire of Dem/Holla/Mea, on Floor 4, you will fail the quest

[edit] Adventuring Fellow Points

To gain access to AF Points, speak to Luto Mewrilah in Upper Jeuno (G-8) for a cutscene. Note: You must have your Signal Pearl equipped for this cut-scene. She will direct you to find a man in Ru'Lude Gardens somewhere. Zone in and go to G-9 next to the Rendezvous Point and speak with Ajahkeem for a second cutscene. (This does not seem to trigger until some amount of bond strength between zero, and the amount required for Past Reflections questVerification Needed.)

Items and categories available to purchase with AF points:

Items for player Items for fellow Modifying fellow
  • Glamorize equipment 8000
  • Deglamorize equipment 1000
  • Change equipment style 10,000
  • Increase maximum active time
    • 30,000 (First upgrade)
    • 50,000 (Second Upgrade)
    • 70,000 (Third Upgrade)
  • Increase fashion advice limit 60,000
  • Miratete's Memoirs: Provides your Adventuring Fellow with an Experience Points scroll to use on itself. It will not let you purchase one if your Fellow is about to level up.

  • Change Equipment style: Changes selected armor slot to a different (selected) line of armor, keeping the current level in the new equipment line.
  • Increase maximum active time: Increases the maximum amount of time your fellow will stay with you.
  • Each upgrade increases your Adventuring Fellow's time limit by 10 minutes.
  • Note: The third Increase maximum active time upgrade is currently the last one available.

  • Chocobo Wand: gives the NPC a chocobo wand as a weapon. Does not have any special properties.
  • Opaline Dress Set/Argent Attire: Attires your NPC in the Body, Legs, and Feet of the Opaline/Argent Set. When this is set, when you call your NPC at a Rendezvous Point you no longer have the option for "Fashionable Equipment". To restore previous gear, talk to Ajahkeem, choose "Items for my fellow" > "Equipment Sets" > "Restore Default Gear". This option seems to appear when your fellow bond reaches the maximum level (see Talk Page Verification Needed).

[edit] Adventuring Fellow Weapons

As your Bond with your Adventuring Fellow increases, Luto Mewrilah will offer to take weapons from you and pass them along to your Adventuring Fellow. What type of weapon you trade to Luto will determine:

  1. What type of weapon skills your fellow will perform.
  2. How often he/she hits and for what amount of damage.
  3. How your NPC looks.

So, if you trade a dagger to Luto, your Fellow will perform dagger weaponskills, will swing quickly for small amounts of damage, and will be seen wielding a dagger. Likewise, if you trade a scythe to Luto, your Fellow will perform scythe weaponskills, will swing slowly for larger amounts of damage and will be seen holding a scythe.

Your Adventuring Fellow has an 'A+' rating in all weapons and can therefore use all weaponskills of the equipped weapon available at his/her level. (This is not completely true. They have whatever skill is the highest any job has with that weapon. This means they only have A- with Axes, Clubs, Daggers, Katana, Great Swords, and Staves, as this is the highest skill any job has with those weapons. This is why they will not get weaponskills like Blade: Ten or Spinning Slash until 66, rather than 65, while they will get weaponskills like Tachi: Gekko or Swift Blade at 65.)Verification Needed

Note that the specific weapon's level and damage rating do not affect the damage done with it by the NPC. Thus, the Kiku-Ichimonji (Job Level 51, DMG 66,upgrade level 7) does the same damage as the Uchigatana (Job Level 12, DMG 24, upgrade level 1) when used by your NPC.

Also note that if you trade a one-handed weapon to Luto, you can also trade a shield.

There are seven weapon levels and thirteen weapon types (including shields). Thus, upon receiving the first message from Luto, you have thirteen weapon choices. Upon receiving the level 7 message, you can trade 91 different weapons to Luto for your NPC.

  • You do not have to have traded a lower level weapon to receive a request from Luto for a higher tier, but you do have to trade a weapon from the first tier in order to make any other trades.
  • Hand-to-Hand Weapons will only attack twice a round if your fellow has "Attacker" or "Fierce Attacker" combat styles. Any other style will only result in one attack per round.
  • The weapon your fellow wields will not always look like the weapon you traded. See Discussion for details.

Luto's chat messages for each level:

  1. PC, I have a question for you. How do you go about choosing a weapon?
  2. NPC told me he was thinking about upgrading his weapon.
  3. About NPC's weapon...I think your pal is looking for a new one again.
  4. I thought a new weapon or shield would make a nice gift in thanks for all the hard work your frrriend has done for me.
  5. PC, the weapon that NPC is using is not the one that I gave him/her...
  6. I saw NPC going into a weapon store carrying one of our gifts...
  7. There was a moogle wandering along carrying some weapons.....Oh, that reminds me, if you want to give me something for NPC, I'll be happy to do the honors.

  • The equipment that your Adventuring Fellow wears does not affect his or her statistics; it's only for looks.
  • As your Bond with your Adventuring Fellow increases, you will be given the option to "lock in" certain equipment that your NPC is wearing. This option appears at a Rendezvous Point under the heading "Fashionable Equipment." When you select one of the equipment options under the Fashionable Equipment submenu, you will lock in that piece of equipment so that it will not change regardless of where you choose to level.
  • Your NPC will initially ask you what he or she should keep. If you answer "none", your NPC will respond as if he or she is disappointed. This means that nothing is locked and all four pieces of armor could change. Once you choose a piece of armor to lock, then all other pieces that you did not select will still be changeable. As your bond increases, you will be able to lock more than one armor piece at a time because immediately following your choice of armor piece, your NPC will ask "What else?"; you will then be able to select from a list of the three still unlocked armor pieces to keep.
  • There are four armor locks available, three gained as your Adventuring Fellow Bond increases, and one bought with Adventuring Fellow points.

[edit] Adventuring Fellow Headgear

As your Adventuring Fellow Bond grows stronger, you will be presented with the following headgear choices for your NPC to wear. These are for cosmetic purposes only; your NPC does not obtain the stats from these items. The headgear options are chosen at a Rendezvous Point. Which options you will get depend on the personality of your Adventuring Fellow:

Face Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5 Level 6 Level 7 Level 8 Level 9
Sullen ♂ Leather Bandana Iron Visor Trader's Chapeau Iron Mask Mythril Sallet Tiger Helm War Beret Austere Hat Wyvern Helm

[edit] Increasing Fellow's Attributes

  • As noted above, the armor and headgear your NPC wears does not enhance them and is only for visual purposes.
  • The following weapons will increase your NPC's statistics when equipped by you and only need to be equipped when calling out your NPC allowing you to change your weapon after and keep the effect.
  • These two weapon items are obtained from the Feast of Swords event.

(Note: The Shinai purchased with adventuring fellow points is equipped by your NPC, and will not give these stats)

  • The following equipment (all level 70), when worn by you, will increase your NPCs statistics:
  • This equipment is dropped randomly from enemies in Dynamis - Tavnazia.
  • The full set will give your NPC an additional HP+60, MP+60, INT+2, DEX+2, VIT+2, STR+2 and AGI+2.

[edit] Starting Over

To start over from the beginning with a completely new fellow, one can do so by talking to Luto Mewrilah and choosing the appropriate option. This will completely reset all completed quests related to the fellow, however, fellow points stored by Ajahkeem will not be lost.

The Signal Pearl, and Tactics Pearl if you currently in possession of one, need to be returned to Luto Mewrilah. If the Signal Pearl has been disposed of, a new one needs to be obtained from a Rendezvous Point.
