  • You will need your Wyvern out to spawn the NMs, so to be safe do not call it until you are ready to fight.
  • Make your way to south to F-11 on the first map and walk through the granite door to the North of F-11 to enter a room in F-9/10. (Note: The ??? here is very close to the one used to spawn the Death from Above NM.)
  • Only invisible is needed to make it to this room safely, but you may find it easier just to clear the tonberries on the way. If you do this, call for help as you fight them so as to not build Tonberry Hate.
  • Clear out the tonberries, bees and doll in F-11 and then you are ready to spawn the 2 NM shadows. These Rumble Crawlers aren't aggressive like the one's in Crawler's Nest so they may be ignored.
  • When ready, call your wyvern, sneak and hit the ??? on the floor to spawn Cleuvarion M Resoaix and Rompaulion S Citalle.
  • Run back to your party and single pull the shadows. It's very possible the other might despawn depending upon how long it takes to kill the first.
  • After the shadows are dead, all the dragoons in attendance need to touch the ??? again, which will start a cutscene and complete the quest. (Please note, that if you get the message, "It seems some kind of ceremony occured here...", you may be too far from the ???. Play around with the angle at which you're standing, and the cutscene will start.")
Returning to Ceraulian in Port San d'Oria when you are done will trigger a short cutscene with Brugaire, although is not necessary. Rahal will also thank you for solving the mystery behind the last Dragoon.
