- This is the first Paladin Artifact Armor quest - otherwise known as AF1.
From this point on, the quest can be completed on any job. You should not use AOE, as the fight takes place in an area with (normally non-aggressive) level 80+ mobs.
- Head to Ordelle's Caves, entering from the western most entrance at (F-7) from La Theine Plateau.
- This is the same entrance where the Survival Guide is located and, if you have it, you can teleport here.
- Head east to the ramp at (I-6) on the first map. From there, head south down the ramp at (H-9). The Stalagmite is next to the hole in the first small room.
- Select the Stalagmite to spawn and kill the NM Polevik, an Earth Elemental. (Note: Can be killed on any job, as long as you have the quest. Should be level 65+ to solo the fight.)
- Touch the Stalagmite again to receive the Ordelle Whetstone.
- Talk to Ailbeche to complete the quest.
- Ailbeche (Parade Grounds, Northern San d'Oria)
- The boy needs a whetstone to sharpen an old blade. Find one for him in Ordelle's Caves.
