  • Talk to Despachiaire (Upstairs behind Walnut Door at K-10) for a cutscene that starts the quest, and to receive an Key ItemAntique amulet.
  • Go to Southern San d'Oria and talk to Rouva.
  • Go to Jugner Forest and exit at E-6 into Carpenters' Landing.
  • Find the ??? at F-9 on a glowing mushroom spore and select to spawn the Funguar NM Para.
  • Defeat Para.
    • When Para is at 10-50% of it's health, it will replicate itself when it uses a TP move if not defeated quickly. It is helpful to save MP or TP to do large damage once it reaches low HP.
    • The first incarnation and all of its replications can easily be disposed of by most 70+ jobs.
    • Although no more than three to four copies seem to be up at a given time (there may be a limit), there is no known limit to the total number of times it can replicate itself. A reasonable source of spike damage is necessary for this fight.
    • The replications are exact copies with the same amount of Max HP and strength.
    • The NM seems to be around the same strength as Funguars in the area but with substantially more HP.
    • Para cannot be slept using Lullaby.
  • Once Para is defeated, select the ??? to obtain a Key ItemCathedral medallion.
  • Return to Southern San d'Oria and talk with Rouva.
  • Return to the Tavnazian Safehold and talk with Despachiaire to complete the quest.
