  • After accepting the mission, go to the Orastery in Port Windurst and talk to Hakkuru-Rinkuru (E-7) for a cut scene.
  • Head to East Sarutabaruta and go to the entrance to the Inner Horutoto Ruins at (J-7).
  • OPTIONAL: Before entering, talk to Sama Gohjima, who is standing before the entrance.
  • Upon entering the Ruins, you will be in the Lily Tower (Map 1). Go down the stairs until you come to the main room.
  • Circle around the room and look for the crack in the center of the south wall at (H-9) (if you see dirt instead of brick floors, you've taken the wrong cracked wall opening).
  • Enter and go left. Click on the door at (I-9) to watch another cut scene with the Minister.
  • Next, search the six different Ancient Magical Gizmos until you find the Cracked Mana Orb. The Cracked Mana Orb will be at a random Ancient Magical Gizmo.
