The Puppet Master
- Go to the House of the Hero in Windurst Walls (G-4) and speak to Carbuncle as a SMN.
- Go to Port Bastok (I-8) and talk to Juroro for a cutscene. Ildy-Goldy hands you an Earth Pendulum and tells you to travel to the Quicksand Caves entrance in Eastern Altepa Desert (J-7).
- Within Quicksand Caves, make your way to the Cloister of Tremors (C-8 on map 1) and trade the Earth Pendulum to the Earth Protocrystal. Select The Puppet Master to start the battlefield.
- This is an uncapped BCNM fight, buffs do not wear. You have 30 minutes to kill Galgalim (a Hecteyes NM).
- Return to Port Bastok and speak with Juroro for another cutscene after killing Galgalim
- The Earth Pendulum can be tossed once you have completed the fight.
- Finally, return to Windurst Walls (E-7) and talk to Koru-Moru to complete the quest and receive your reward.
- Note: You do have to be SMN to start quest at the House of the Hero, but not to do the fight or any of the other cutscenes.
- Note: The trial-sized tuning forks can be used to reduce travel time if you want to do the fight as SMN.
