List of Contents
|1||Visit Old Dalan's place in Lowtown.|
|2||Take the southern path in Lowtown to reach Dalan's hideout in Lowtown.|
|3||Talk to Dalan to open up the quest for the Crescent Stone, needed to proceed beyond the next section.|
|4||Dalan sends you to the Giza Plains for a Sunstone, which is required to power up the Crescent Stone.|
The Lowtown of Rabanastre is a sprawling pathway underneath the city's main streets. It is the site for quite a few quests involving Vaan and his friends, as well as the home of a very powerful creature.
The Crescent Stone is a main item during the early section of the story. Vaan will receive it unpowered, but it will eventually be energized by the time it is needed to be used.
|5||Watch the cutscene after you leave Dalan's place.|
|6||Leave for the Giza Plains through the South Gate. Save your game at the savepoint.|
|7||Go straight for the Nomad Village. Speak with Elder Brunoa.|
|8||Talk to Masyua to find Jinn. Jinn will be your key to the sunstone item. Penelo will also join your party.|
|9||Talk to any nomad youth to find out Jinn's location. Penelo will also give you items to use on your quest.|
|10||Find Jinn to the south of the village. He will give you a shadestone to fill up into a Sunstone.|
|11||Return to Nomad Village and Masyua for a reward. Afterwards, make your way back to Rabanastre and Dalan to show the filled-up sunstone.|
|12||There will be a cutscene where, afterwards, Penelo will leave your party. Hand the sunstone to Dalan in exchange for the Crescent Stone.|
Penelo will join your party during the quest in the Giza Plains. This makes Penelo your first official party-mate, as well as your first official healer. You won't be able to alter her gambits just yet while you're in the Giza Plains.
The sunstones are mysterious stones powered by larger Dark stones that dot the landscape of the Giza Plains. You will help Jinn in completing his quest for a powered sunstone, which will also give you the means to power up the Crescent Stone to continue your quest.
|13||Dalan sends you to the Royal Palace. Talk to Kytes in Storehouse 5 to gain access to the Garamsythe Waterways entryway.|
|14||The previously locked door in Storehouse 5 is now open. Kytes also gives you some items.|
|15||Enter the locked door to the Garamsythe Waterway. Make your way through Garamsythe Waterway into the Palace.|
|16||Make your way through the cellar stores, grabbing any items you may find. Talk to the friendly Seeq to get past the guard.|
|17||Use the 'Y' button to shout to distract the guards as you make your way through the floor. Find the floor with the Lion Signet on it.|
|18||Use the Crescent Stone on it to reveal a secret path. Search for a switch to open the treasury door.|
|19||You will receive the Goddess Magicite after opening the door. You will also meet up with Balthier and Fran, who joins your party.|
|20||There are some fallen soldiers to investigate nearby before you make your way into the labyrinthine dungeon.|
|21||Find your way through the Waterway for a battle with four soldiers and a 'guest,' Amalia, who will join your party.|
|22||You will also experience your first batlle with a full party of characters as you make your way through the dungeon.|
|23||Proceed to the central part of the dungeon. Save if you can, you will be facing a boss, the Firemane. Finish the cutscene and move on to the Nalbina Dungeons.|
Gambits are especially helpful when you're in a pinch. The gambits will finally be unlocked during the Garamsythe Waterways campaign, where Fran and Balthier joins your party.
The Firemane is a pretty tough customer. This creature will also be the first boss you battle since the tutorial boss. For more information on how to beat the Firemane, visit our FF12 Boss Battles section.
