Walkthrough

  • How to remove the latent effect:
  • You must perform Weapon Skills and Skillchains on monsters that con Easy Prey or higher.
  • You receive 1 point for opening/soloing a weaponskill, 2 points for closing a Lv.1 Skillchain, 3 points for closing a Lv.2 Skillchain and 5 points for closing a level 3 Skillchain.
  • You must accumulate 300 total points.
  • To check to see if the latent effect has disappeared, simply unequip and re-equip the Sapara of Trials and if you do not get the bonus stats, you are done. Or, just check your elemental resists (no unequip necessary), if gone you have broken the latent.
  • Once you no longer receive the latent effect bonus, head back to Chateau d'Oraguille and trade the Sapara of Trials back to Curilla, who will take the weapon from you and give you a Map to the Annals of Truth (key item) and tell you to head to Quicksand Caves.
  • Head to Western Altepa Desert. Here you will need to open the Altepa Gate.
  • Once in Quicksand Caves go to I-6 on the map to the right and click the ??? to spawn the NM named Girtablulu. On the way there, you may encounter an antica that hears through sneak at the 4-way intersection. Wait for that antica to move to the far southwest corner of that room before heading north.
  • Girtablulu can be fought like any mid-level NM. The scorpion has very poor accuracy but hits hard when it connects. There's not much AoE to speak of, but keep your mages well away for safety. The only thing to really worry about is the tank's HP when Girtablulu performs its special attack, which can cause significant damage. Make sure to bring adequate healing power and this fight should go by without a hitch.
  • Girtablulu's use of Death Scissors can do upwards of 1000 damage on a well-equipped level 75 Paladin. It may be best to bring a blink tank.
  • Once the NM is dead, re-examine the ??? to obtain the Annals of Truth (key item).
  • Bring this back to Curilla for your reward.
