The Battle of Xarcabard Storm's Crescendo


  • Check the "Rally Point:Green" (G-9) for a cutscene, and you will be given the keyitem: "Magelight Signal Flare"
  • Check the Spell-worked Snow which can be found 45 yalms SE from "Rally Point:Green" and prepare for a fight.
  • After the fight you will get a cutscene and an Elixir, Vile Elixir or Vile Elixir +1. (Probably based on time taken to complete mission.)


You will enter into Ghoyu's Reverie.

  • Buffs wear upon entry.
  • Exp is not lost upon death. Reraise effect wears off once all members are ejected from the battlefield.
  • You have 30 mins after entry to complete this mission.
  • Magelight Signal Flare will be lost upon entry and if you fail will have to obtain another one which can only be obtained once each Vana'diel day.
  • Talk to Pesoso to start off the mission.
  • You'll be fighting MANY Yagudos, Quadavs, Orcs and Demons, of several type-jobs.
    • The fight is divided into 3 areas. When the last mob in the first and second area reaches 1% HP, they will run away at increased movement speed and open the path to the next area.
    • The Yagudos, Quadav, and Orcs have very low HP and do not deal very much damage from spells or physical attacks.
    • The Yagudos, Quadav, and Orcs take extra damage from magic spells.
    • Demons will appear starting in the third room. The Demons have much higher HP and higher physical damage than the other monsters.
    • Beastmen will only link with their own family. Orcs will link with other Orcs, but not with Yagudo, Quadav, or Demons.
    • All enemies agro as expected. Sneak and Invisible can be used if necessary.
    • All enemies are susceptible to Sleep, Lullaby.
  • Defeating an enemy gives you the possibility of various temporary items similar to those in Nyzul Isle.
  • After defeating all enemies in the third room, talk to Pesoso again to exit Ghoyu's Reverie.
  • This burning circle is a lot like the assault Blitzkrieg and similar battles. Waves of really weak enemies. BLU, BLM, RDM/BLM, can all do a lot of damage with AoE spells taking out lots of mobs. AoE WSs can help too.
