Lakeside Minuet The Road to Divadom


  • Talk to Laila at (G-7) in Upper Jeuno as a level 40+ Dancer to begin the quest.
  • Next, talk to Rhea Myuliah right beside her.
  • Travel to Grauberg (S) and check the ??? at (F-5) for a cutscene. Avoid true sight Grauberg Hippogryphs along the way.
  • Check the ??? again to spawn NM Migratory Hippogryph.
    • If you zone before checking the ???, it will not spawn; you must receive the cutscene and then spawn the NM without zoning. Therefore, your main job MUST be Dancer for this fight.
    • There are many Sidhe near the ???. However, unlike most pixies, Sidhe do not cure players.
  • Check the ??? again after defeating it to receive Key Item"The Essence of Dance".
    • The Migratory Hippogryph only needs to be defeated once per party/alliance in order for all Dancers on the quest to get the second cutscene and the key item. Just be sure that everyone has examined the ??? at least once for the initial cutscene.
  • If someone has just defeated the NM, it may take a few minutes for the ??? to spawn another Migratory Hippogryph.
  • Navigate to the permanent key item menu and read the key item description.
  • Talk to Laila at (G-7) in Upper Jeuno to receive a War Hoop (you must examine your key item first in order to get the cutscene, and your main job must still be Dancer).
