Items Involved: Miounne's Letter
  • Miounne tells you that the Guardian Tree, held sacred by the Gridanians, may fall under Ixali attack. She gives you a letter and bids you deliver it to Bowlord Lewin at the Seat of the First Bow.
  • A large Ixali force has amassed at the Guardian Tree. Make all haste to Everschade, and assist in the great tree's defense.
  • You have succeeded in repelling the Ixal, whom evidence suggests were acting under the command of the mysterious masked mage. What is the significance of the black crystal that was left at the scene, and who exactly are the two scholars from Sharlayan? For now, set aside your questions, and make your way back to the Seat of the First Bow, where Bowlord Lewin awaits.
  • At the Seat of the First Bow, you are graciously received by Elder Seedseer Kan-E-Senna. As a token of her gratitude for saving the day, she invites you to serve as Emissary in the forthcoming Greenbliss ceremony. Touched by her gesture, you are inspired anew to continue to strive for the good of Gridania.

The fight begins against a wave of Ixali, with Miraudont taking the right side, a Wood Wailer and Gods Quiver taking the left, and Galfrid facing off against Quzal in the center. Both Galfrid and Miraudont can take care of themselves, with Miraudont able to heal them both. The two unnamed soldiers to the left will die unless you intervene, but trying to keep them alive will make the fight more difficult. Should the wave they're fighting be defeated, a second wave will spawn (and if you're healing the soldiers, likely target you). Should this second wave be defeated, a Blanga will be summoned. The fight can be won faster by simply focusing on the boss, in which case you'll just have the initial waves to deal with.

For the second phase, you'll face off against the Lesser Gargoyle and the Masked Mage. If you don't attack the mage, he actually won't attack back. This leaves you to deal with just the gargoyle. Once it's almost dead, Yda and Papalymo will join in, proving an immense help against the mage.
