This page is another interlude section between when the party visits the Viera homeworld of Eruyt Village and before the party heads to the Henne Mines. The sections of the game listed on this page are entirely optional and you can skip straight through to the Henne Mines page if preferred.


The first thing that you can do is travel back to the village of Jahara to the south of the Ozmone Plain. Return to the Lull of the Land area and look for a Judge Hausen standing next to one of the Garif. Judge Hausen will mention that he wishes he could accompany Lord Larsa to Mt Bur-Omisace and offers you some items to assist you in his absence, specifically 3 Hi-Potions and an Ether.

Make sure that you pick up the Decoy spell from the Clan Provisioner in the Muthruu Bazaar in Rabanastre so that you can setup a proper party with a tank. With this spell you should have no trouble taking down one of the more difficult marks. Having Larsa in your party (extra damage and Cure Magick) is a nice benefit as well.

Return to Montblanc at the Clan Hall in Rabanastre to obtain a few new rewards. You should now have achieved a rank of Headhunter (2 Ethers, 2 Teleport Stones) and then a Ward of Justice (2 X-Potions, 2 Teleport Stones). You can now pick up another Elite Mark to track down Orthros (Hunt 35: Crime and Punishment) which is fairly difficult to attempt at this point in the game.

You can speak to the petitioner now though. The petitioner for Hunt 35 is the Contrite Thief located in the northern section of Lowtown.

There is one more mini side quest that you can complete before continuing with the next part of the story.

This is everything you can and should do before continuing with the game. It is now time to make your way to the Henne Magicite Mines.
