Starting NPC: Adventurer’s Guild Investigator at x10.4 y8.5 Old Gridania (closest aetheryte is the Amphitheater)
Minimum Level: 15
Quest Requirement: Complete It’s Probably Pirates

  1. Take the quest “In a Manor of Spooking” from Adventurer’s Guild Investigator and then speak to the Enthralling Illusionist at the nearby Amphitheatre.
  2. Go to the following locations to procure the items needed for the quest, in any order:
    • Jemime at the Goldsmith’s Guild in Ul’dah Steps of Thal – Grotesque Candelabras (Key Items)
    • Distracted Harlequin at the Culinarian’s Guild in Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks – Pumpkin Cookies (will not be in your Key Items or anywhere in your bag)
    • Corgg at the Carpenter’s Guild in New Gridania – Pumpkin Lanterns (Key Items)
  3. Return to the Enthralling Illusionist then head to the Destination at the Leatherworker’s Guild. Speak once again to the Investigator and then speak to the Illusionist.
  4. Enter The Haunted Manor instance by speaking to the Harlequin Guide and obtain pumpkin cookies. You have to complete the quests of the imps in the manor to obtain the cookies as a reward. For the instance, you can sign up with one to four people and the duty finder will fill in any vacant spots. There is no class limit or requirement because it is not a battle instance. You will get any three of the following quests. Note: There is a Sanity Meter. It lowers when you are spotted by one of the minions. hahaha lol
    • Skinchanger: Use smokebomb on pumpkins (Suspicious Pumpkin) to revealed the transformed imp. Even just one player will do. If the chest glows blue, that is the imp. Click it.
    • Arcane Circles: Four arcane circles are scattered all over the manor. All four players must stand on each one at the same time.

    • Light the Lanterns: Obtain Smoldering Coals and light four Jack o Lanterns.
    • Jack in the Box: Use the hints (which you can find in the Manor) to find and open two untrapped Pumpkin Chests. Opening a trapped chest will lower your sanity!
    • Coffercracker: Discover the combination and /say the numbers to the coffer. So far the one I played needed 5 numbers.
    • Cookie Hunt: Obtain a total of fifteen cookies. Bronze baskets have 1 cookie, silver baskets have 3 cookies, gold baskets have 5 cookies.
    • Other Info: Occasionally you will find an Obfuscation Charm. Use it to turn “invisible” for a few seconds so that you can just run past the imps and such. After completing the third task given by the Imp, you will complete the instance.

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)

    • “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.

    • 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.

    • 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.
