The Shadow Awaits Saintly Invitation


  • WARNING: If you have not gotten Trust: Ajido-Marujido yet, get him before you start this mission. If you start without him, you will not be able to get him until rank 10.
  • Go to any Windurst Gate Guard to start the mission.
  • Trade 37 4 elemental crystals or 19 (presumably 2?) light/dark crystals to get enough Rank Points for this mission.

Outer Horutoto Ruins[edit]

  • Jack of Coins (RDM)
  • Jack of Cups (WHM)
  • Jack of Swords (PLD)
    • You do not need to defeat all four Jacks. It is possible to pull one of them using a pet, or non-magical ranged attack, and wait for the other three to despawn before killing the selected Jack. It is important to sneak up before examining the door to avoid getting attacked immediately.
    • It also works to zone after spawning the Jacks and kill one after zoning back. (still have to wait for the other 3 to despawn)
  • Once you have defeated them, examine the door again; You should get a Cut-scene.
    • If you defeat the one Jack you pulled before the other 3 despawn, you will not receive the cut-scene when you examine the door.
    • You can still get the cut-scene if you kill all four of them.
    • The other 3 will take roughly 2-3 minutes to despawn.
    • They detect magic, so pulling in that manner will result in all four attacking, unless it is cast far away enough.
      • In addition, while it may be obvious to some, these NMs will link and aggro players NOT ON THIS MISSION. Please be careful if one is farming the Cardians in this section; they will not take kindly to four level 62 NMs suddenly attacking them.
      • If you do not kill the three Cardians that spawn in this room, they can link to the Jack you pull.
      • If you are doing this fight twice in a row there is a 10 minute wait between spawns, otherwise you will get the message "The door will not open, even with the southwestern star charm. A mysterious force is interfering."
Composite map to Full Moon Fountain
  • Note: Escaping from inside any of the Horutoto Ruins will drop you off in front of the east tower in East Sarutabaruta. Going inside the tower just outside Windurst Waters and casting Escape may be slightly faster than walking from Windurst Woods.

Full Moon Fountain[edit]

The fastest way to get here is the Home point if you already have it.

  • 1. Key ItemPortal Charm or RDM, WHM & BLM required. If you already got the Survival Guide in Toraimarai Canal, you can warp straight there without the need to open the three mage door. In that case, skip down.
    • Starting from J-7 tower in East Sarutabaruta, zone into Inner Horutoto Ruins.
    • Cracked wall at G-8
    • Magic Gate of Horutoto at E-10
    • Cracked Wall at D-10
    • Sealed Portal also known as the Three Mage Gate at H-9.
    • Through false wall at H-8. (it will seem impassable, just walk forward and you will pass through it)
    • Toraimarai Canal door is at H-6, however, there are two of them at this position. Enter the tunnel that is on the left and zone into Toraimarai Canal. The door on the right would send you back to the Sealed Portal.
      • Start here if you used the Survival Guide.
    • Stay to the left and cross the bridge at H-6
    • Hug right wall until you see a set of stairs. Go down them into the water and continue to an intersection.
    • Head right and at the next set of stairs go up.
    • Walk northward looping back around by the stairs.
    • Follow the wall around a couple corners to the next fork and go south.
    • In the big open room with all the stairs, hug the right wall and make your way to the tunnel at F-8. ***Go down past the skeletons and open the Large Stone Door.
      • Start here if you used the crystal Home Point #1.
    • Zone at G-7 to Full Moon Fountain
  • 2. Key ItemRhinostery Certificate required. Starting from Priming Gate at H-3 of Windurst Walls, zone into Toraimarai Canal.
    • Down stairs at G-7 & head west
    • Turn south at the intersection at G-7
    • Turn west at F-8 to the first map
    • Up stairs at J-9 and head west
    • Cross bridge at I-8 and head south
    • Hug right wall all the way to Large Stone Door at F-8
    • Zone at G-7 to Full Moon Fountain
  • After the cutscene, the mission is complete.
