  2. Speak to Haermaga at x32 y28.
  3. Wait for Haermaga at x30.9 y23.9 Hidden Falls, North Bloodshore, Eastern La Noscea.
  4. After that drivel- er, cutscene, go back to Haermaga at Costa del Sol to complete the quest. Rewards: 7410 exp, 547 gil
  5. Speak to J’nangho for the first of your repeatable quests: Dashing and Burning.
  6. Go to Wunthyll at x29.8 y27.7 to get an elbst for the quest then head over to the following coordinates to extinguish the fire on some dummies:
    • x27.9 y32.8
    • x28.4 y27.2
    • x28.6 y24.3
  7. After the cutscene, return to Haermaga to complete the quest. You will receive one Faire voucher and “Dashing and Burning” will be unlocked as a repeatable quest.
  8. Speak to J’nangho for the second of your repeatable quests: Hot n Cold.
  9. Craft or buy three Rolanberry Shaved Ice then give it to the Black Ranger at x27.4 y31.2

  12. Speak to J’nangho for the third (and last) of your repeatable quests: Who Let the Bombs Out.
  13. You need to weaken and net three (3) Bygone Bombards around x28 y25. Now let me rant a bit here: What the fuck, SE?! These are low levels monsters for a Level 30 event so I understand that, but what about players who are all-60? We have to wait for a “downtime” when there are barely any players around so that we can switch to a gatherer that will not one-hit the mobs, and then we have to hit it just enough so that we can “capture” it. Did you even think this one out?  Oh great it only responds to first-hit, yay! (Hint: You can use Flash and have a weakling hit the mob)
  14. Release the bound Bombards at x31.2 y25.1 then return to the Re- I mean, Haermaga to complete the quest. You will receive one Faire voucher and “Who Let the Bombs Out” will be unlocked as a repeatable quest. But who the hell would want to repeat that?
  15. After you complete the three repeatable quests once each, the main seasonal quest “A Battle Royal” will be available from Haermaga. Take it and proceed to the Hidden Falls.
  16. After the cutscene, proceed to the area of the seasonal event FATEs listed below and complete both. Speak with the Yellow Ranger at the Hidden Falls to complete the quest.

    • Lyell who prepared the meal; Gold Saucer employee.
    • Flaurie who was at the same table; victim’s wife.
  3. Search the Gold Saucer for evidence. Return to Ollier at any time, he will have two dialogue options:
    • “The killer is among us, and I know who it is!” – select this only if you want to guess who the killer is.
    • “I’d like to discuss the evidence that I’ve gathered so far.” – select this if you want to discuss your evidence with Ollier
  4. After gathering whatever evidence you can find, you will be asked to present your evidence. Answer the succeeding questions, which may be different depending on your previous answer.
  5. Speak to Ollier at Wonder Square East, then go down to the other event NPCs in front of the giant Sabotender statue. Speak to Ollier once again to complete the quest. Rewards: One (1) Gold Saucer Ticket, 10 Golden Sparklers (Note that this quest is repeatable so that you may explore other branches/options)

    • Golden Sparkler – 10 pieces for 20MGP
  • NPCs that provide evidence/dialogue for the quest:
    • Serving Tray: Interactive item near the victim’s body served by Z’napha, the pungent odor of bitter spirits is overpowering.
    • Northern Storm: Wonder Square East, Roegadyn, says the victim likes to drink and his wife did not like it.
    • Kokomui: Wonder Square East, Lalafell, says the victim frequented the Cactpot Board and was lucky.
    • Tiny Phial @ x 7.9 y 6.8: Interactive item down the hall towards the Main Stage, has a sweet scent.
    • Hitchcock: Main Stage near The Moogle’s Paw machines, Hyur, took the glass from which the victim drank but only for safekeeping; the glass has a sweet scent.
    • Veleda: Cactpot Board, Hyur, says Lyell is too serious to be rash, but Z’napha has not been long enough for Veleda to know her
    • Senor Desinflado: Round Square, Sabotender costume, has sickly sweet scent.
    • Jourcel: Minicactpot area, Elezen, says Flaurie and the victim were laughing at the antics of a Senor Sabotender.
    • Abbelina: Entrance, Hyur, says victim comes alone or with Flaurie.
    • Parchment Slip @ x 4.6 y 7.4: Interactive item at Card Square, “To the King, You know what must needs be done. Succeed, and you shall be rewarded handsomely. From, The Rook.”

THE SOLUTION IS UP AHEAD! MASSIVE SPOILER!

  1. To unlock the “True Ending”, collect all of the ten Evidence/Dialogue. Review all of them by speaking to Ollier before stating who the killer is.
  2. Answer the questions with these:
    • How was the victim poisoned?( “drink” )
    • What compelled the criminal to poison the drink?  ( “sickly sweet scent” )
    • When was the poison administered? ( “already on the table” )
    • How was the poison hidden? ( “small sealed phial” )
    • Who was the killer? ( “Senor Sabotender” )
    • Why would Senor Sabotender commit murder? ( “Kokomui” )
    • Why would Kokomui commit murder? ( “ran out of money” )
    • Is there more to your accusation? (“Roland”, the Rook and King pertains to Roland and Kokomui)
  3. The MGS staff reveals that their new attraction is the Murder Mystery. The ‘victim’ merely drank a sleeping potion. Kokomui is legit poor though and needs the money.
