WARNING THIS GUIDE HAS SPOILERS!!
YOU WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING PETS AND ITEMS FOR THE QUEST
PREVIEW- First off I would like to point out that the first half of this quest is the same as the first part of the Frederico quest so if you have completed the Frederico quest you can skip steps 1-3.
To start off this quest you need to travel to the far away village of Welling. You should have Niss in you'r team for this section of the quest. Take Niss to the 2nd floor of the hotel where she gets drowsy and decides it nap time.(lazy bum how dare she want to take a nap!!) You decide she needs to sleep so you go to explore.(BTW if you ever want the quest to be finished i suggest you start by exploring the Welling village leaders house as that is where you are supposed to go)After you leave the Leader's house you see a scene in which the local presbyter has Niss bound and gagged and basically is about to light her on fire. You forgive her for her lazy napping and decide to rescue her. You pull her away from the fire pit and tell the presbyter to leave her alone. Well the presbyter doesnt see things your way and decides to attack. WARNING THIS BATTLE IS INCREDIBLY HARD! I SUGGEST EXTREME CAUTION TO ALL WHO DARE TO APPOSE THESE 3 SINISTER LVL 10 SOLDIERS! AT THE VERY LEAST YOU SHOULD HAVE A TEAM OF 1 LVL 5 FIRE AND YOURSELF! Ok well basically you beat the crap out of them and then the presbyter desides he wants the whole town to fight you. luckily for you the village leader steps in and pardons you and your lazy companion Niss.
Ok now you can put Niss back with the pet holder where she will....go to sleep...again. Anyways now you need Roca, the butt-kicking super-women that (lets face the facts) probably was the only reason u stayed alive in those low lvl days. You take Roca to the Subway Tunnel(more often known as the troll cave) where right before you enter she decides she wants to go see her father in Kelan. You go back to Kelan and find Roca's house empty. After talking to the guard outside you find that He has gone to Welling vilage. You head towards Welling and find something very suspicious....neither of the guards are at the door. You step inside the house to find the evil Super-villain Frederico and his sidekick known as Mooter in total control of the place. Well long story short Roca's father gives up his own life to protect his precious daughter. Roca runs back to Kelan and you follow her. Once you arrive in Kelan you find a shrine has been made in memory of Roca's brave father.(this shrinr is located just west of the Kelan cave entrance). You find Roca at the shrine and she promises that she will revenge her father under all circumstances.
Now you will need to go to South Island by the entrance to Maka Cave. Take an Airship(or another flying vehicle) up to the peak of the mountain where you find a hidden door which, of course, you go in. Inside you find the devil La Tim who is astounded that a mere human made it to his hiding place, He attacks you and the battle begins.(La Tim is lvl 70. i did it with a single lvl 95 fire and myself,i was lvl 48 then, but my recommended team would be 1 lvl 80+ fire, 1 lvl 80+ water, and yourself.)After you beat him he makes a deal with Roca saying he will make her stronger so she can fight Frederico. You get a "La Tim's Lease". ALSO MAKE SURE YOU GET THE SKULL GEM THAT RESTS ATOP THE PEDISTOOL!
Now you need to transport yoursel to Mayan where human sacrifices are made and cannibals are always looking for a snack. (You will need Qlaya for this half of the quest)There is a temple thing just north of the well where you need to enter. There are 2 people located in here you will need to talk to both. First talk to the Priest who tells you about 2 missing skull gems that he really need returned(1 of which you already have). Next is Mannix who has lost his calendar and really needs it found. Just east of the well there is a young boy who after being asked says he has found the calendar but will only give it up if you give him a yaro safflower in return. (If you don't have one there is one by a house located near the north-east corner of the town) After you get the calendar give it back to Mannix who gives you the magic carpet design in return. Now it is time for the final step of the quest.
Now jump into the well where,if you already got shasha, you should be right at home. Instead of taking the secret path to the altar where you get shasha go to the arrow. There is now a (?) icon where the skull gem is at. Once you get there qlaya translates from her native tongue and removes the skull gem from the pedastool. Then just when you think you have finally removed a magical artifact from its rightful place withought having to battle some evil,dark monster....a dead skull warrior thing pops up and proves you wrong.(In this fight my team was 1 lvl. 155 fire, 1 lvl. 180 water, and myself,at this point lvl 93. We decimated/destroyed/obliterated the poor guy so you dont really need a team of that calibur but here is my suggestion: 2 fires lvl 90+ and 1 water lvl 90+ and yourself) After this fight you return the 2 skull gems to the Priest who,in return, gives you the black devil spar and the dazzling armlet. There quest complete:)
AS ALWAYS ALL INPUT IS APPRECIATED
