Find 3 Switches located around the area.

  • The switches load in 3 of the 7 small rooms on the map.
    • When you find a switch select a member of your party to stay guard, preferrably somone who does not have Widescan.
    • The 3 switches must be active at the same time in order to spawn the rune of release. They stay active for three minutes after they are hit.
    • If you are fortunate enough that both of the westernmost switch locations have switches, one person can hit both switches easily, freeing the rest of the party to check other locations.
  • Avoid the Dahak dragons.
    • The 3 Dahaks roam the area in a reasonably predictable pattern. Getting past them is just a matter of timing and luck.
    • There are rock outcroppings in some paths that you can hide behind to avoid being seen by oncoming Dahaks. Noteable examples include:
      • One on the South-East corner of the large room at (G-7). It can be used to avoid Dahaks coming from either direction.
      • One on the East side of the large room at (G-8). It can be used to avoid Dahaks coming from the North.
    • Since these Dahaks only detect by sight, it is possible to follow behind them very closely and sneak off to a sidepath to wait for them to pass by the other way.
      • Be very careful if you do this. The Dahaks can and will turn around without any warning.
  • Once all 3 switches are active at the same time, the Rune of Release will appear at (H-8).


  • The Dahaks have extremely high HP, and should not be considered something worth killing.
  • RNG or BST are very handy to have, even as a subjob, for their widescan. It makes it much easier to track the movements of the dragons, and figure out timing to get past them undetected.
  • G-8 on the map is common place to encounter Dahaks. It is simple to avoid them. If you enter G-8 from the east, hug the right wall (northen wall) and wait in a corner for the oncoming Dahak to pass. If you enter G-8 from the southwest, hug the southern wall and wait in a corner for the Dahak to pass.
  • If you are seen by a Dahak, it is possible to lose enmity from it, so long as you do not trigger Draw In. This is achievable by running away from the Dahaks but not too far ahead, easily done with a movement ability such as Flee. After about 20 seconds, as long as you don't trigger Draw In, the Dahak will turn around and return to its patrol. This is when you do no action to claim it; I have not attempted if you colour its name red through claiming.
