Game Details for Tango With a Tracker
Client: Despachiaire (Elders' Quarters, Tavnazia)

Summary: A letter from Shikaree X addressed to you has arrived in the safehold. It appears she wants to gauge your battle prowess in Boneyard Gully.
Walkthrough for Tango With a Tracker
Requirements: Chains of Promathia mission 7-5 must be completed to obtain this quest.
  1. Talk to Despachiaire for a cut-scene, and obtain the key item Letter From Shikaree X; the quest will not show up in the quest log at this point.
  2. Go to Boneyard Gully and proceed to the BCNM there, for a cut-scene that fully activates the quest. The fight is a standard BCNM (experience can be lost, etc.) listed as Tango With a Tracker. This is a 30 minute fight, no level cap, with a maximum of 6 characters allowed.
  3. Enter the BCNM to fight three mobs: Shikaree X (a Mithran BST/DRK), Shikaree X's Rabbit (a Rabbit pet), and Shikaree Y (a Mithra, who uses Ninjutsu). The key item is used up upon entry into the BCNM; if you fail in the fight, you can return to Despachiaire and talk to him for another key item, to try again.
    Fight Specifics: The two trackers (Shikaree X and Shikaree Y) can both be slept, but are highly resistant to it; an Elemental Seal is generally required to land it. Shikaree X's Pet cannot be slept, but is susceptible to Gravity and Bind. As in the mission BCNM, these mithra Sin Hunters use regular attacks as well as skillchains, which they can do fairly often because of their fast TP gaining abilities. Also, as a partial Dark Knight, Shikaree X does basic nukes; Shikaree Y can use Ninjutsu -- both have around 5000HP. The general order is to sleep the Mithra and Bind/Gravity the pet; kill Shikaree Y, then Shikaree X, then the pet.
  4. Upon defeating the three mobs, a cut-scene is shown that completes the quest, providing the gil and title reward. The next quest in this set can be activated after the next weekly Conquest Ranking tally.
Recommended Level for Tango With a Tracker
This quest is designed for a full group of 6 level 75 characters, who can defeat this set of mobs without much difficulty.
