Game Details for For the Birds
Client: Koblakiq (Oldton Movalpolos)

Summary: A letter has arrived from Zeelozok asking for an "arnica root" to be brought to Castle Oztroja. Koblakiq has entrusted this task to you...
Walkthrough for For the Birds
Requirements: The quest Missionary Moblin must have already been completed; zoning is required to start this next quest.
  1. Talk to Koblakiq and agree to help her, to start the quest.
  2. Obtain an Arnica Root. This drops from cactuar mobs in either Eastern or Western Altepa Desert. It is also available in the Auction House and is usually listed there fairly cheaply.
  3. Go to Castle Oztroja. Go past the door at I-8 on the first map, then through the exit at G-7. On the next map, head north to the alcove at I-7; trade the Arnica Root to the NPC Daa Bola the Seer located there.
  4. Return to Oldton Movalpolos and talk with Koblakiq, and she'll give you a Glittering Fragment key item and send you to Beadeaux.
  5. Go to Beadeaux and head through the underground area, back up to the upper level, and head to across the bridge to the north side of G-10. The NPC Ge'Fhu Yagudoeye is located by the smokestacks. Clear the surrounding Quadav near him, then talk to him to spawn four NMs: two Paladin Nickel Quadav and two Black Mage Magnes Quadav. They can be slept and silenced to make the fight easier; the Magnes Quadav have far fewer HP and should generally be killed first.
  6. Kill the four NM, then talk to Ge'Fhu Yagudoeye for an event after they are all dead. If the event does not appear, re-zone into Beadeaux to receive it. If multiple people are doing the quest at once, it may be necessary to respawn and and kill the NMs for each character who is on the quest; they can be spawned without zoning, by each different character, about every 5 minutes from the NPC.
  7. Return to Oldton Movalpolos and talk with Koblakiq to finish the quest and receive your Jaeger Mantle reward.
Recommended Level for For the Birds
The Quadav NMs make up the most difficult portion of this quest, and are the only mobs that need to be killed, if the Arnica Root is purchased. A group at level 50 should be able to dispatch them with ease, or a character can solo them around level 65, depending on job.
