  • Minfilia is wearing a wry smile. Might it have something to do with your newfound fame?
  • It would seem your recent exploits have garnered the attention of all three of the Grand Companies of Eorzea. Now each one is intent upon adding you to its ranks, going so far as to send a representative to the Waking Sands to court you. Though Minfilia does not seem best pleased by this turn of events, she concedes that joining a Grand Company would yield certain benefits. But which one will you choose? That you might make an informed decision, she suggests that you attend the forthcoming remembrance services and listen to each Grand Company leader's address. Tataru will be able to furnish you with the particulars.
  • Tataru has apprised you as to where the remembrance services are due to be held. Visit Mih Khetto's Amphitheatre in Gridania, the Royal Promenade in Ul'dah, and finally the Stateroom in Limsa Lominsa, and hear what the Grand Company leaders have to say.
  • You have now attended all three of the remembrance services. Based on the words of the Grand Company leaders and the traveling twins, Alphinaud and Alisaie, it would appear that each of Eorzea's city–states is beset with problems. Clearly, all three would benefit from your aid, but which of them deserves it most? Make your way back to the Waking Sands, and share your thoughts with Minfilia.
  • Minfilia confirms that all three city–states are sorely in need of assistance, and laments the fact that there is only one of you. A difficult choice awaits. Weigh your decision well, and give your answer to the officer of the Grand Company you would join.

Quest Accepted

I, um... I'm sorry about all the attention you're getting, Forename... I might have sung your praises a little too loudly...and often...to a few too many people. Ahem. Next time, I'll be sure to hold my tongue─literally, if necessary.


Anyway, I expect you want to know where and when the remembrance services are taking place?


If all goes to plan, Gridania's Grand Company, the Order of the Twin Adder, will hold the first of the three services, and Elder Seedseer Kan–E–Senna will deliver her address at Mih Khetto's Amphitheatre.


I should probably mention at this point that due to the organizational challenges involved in assembling all of the involved parties, it's possible that the order of the services might change... Still, there's not much we can do about that, so make Gridania your first port of call.


Next, you'll need to go to Ul'dah, where Flame General Raubahn Aldynn will be addressing the masses at the Royal Promenade. Oh, and it's rumored there's to be a special guest! How exciting.


Last but not least, you must make your way to the Stateroom in Limsa Lominsa, where Maelstrom Chief Admiral Merlwyb Bloefhiswyn will be giving her address.


The room is accessible via the Admiral's Lift. Identify yourself to the sentry, Zanthael, and he will admit you. Got all that?


Well, off you go, then. I hope you find the remembrance services suitably educational! I suggest visiting the city–states in my prescribed order, though with your record of impeccable timing and luck, the schedule may well change in favor of your preferred travel plans. Farewell!
The Flame General is a passionate man, and his words never fail to light a fire in the belly of those who listen. I am sure you will be no exception!
The Elder Seedseer speaks only truth, and her words have the power to touch the soul. At the sound of her voice, all fall silent and attend her.
When the Admiral speaks, even pirates listen, and that is no small thing. She is a born leader─the kind one would gladly follow to the seventh hell!

Forename, this is Minfilia. You are well, I hope? Would I be correct in thinking that the final remembrance service has now concluded?


A moment ago, you say? What a coincidence!


Jesting aside, I trust you remember our guests from the Grand Companies? Well, delighted though we are to have them here at the Waking Sands, it would not do to keep them in suspense any longer than necessary. In short: hurry back!

Here to attend the remembrance service? Be quick─the Admiral is due to give her address at any moment.
Proceed to the Stateroom?

Yes


No
If you're not interested in attending, make way for those who are.

Welcome back, Forename. Were the Grand Company leaders' words as illuminating as you had hoped?


Aye, each nation is beset with problems. I trust you see now why your services are in such demand. Would that there were more of you, Forename.


But you must be tired from your journey. Why don't you rest awhile, and take a moment to reflect on your decision? Once your mind is made up, pray give the Grand Company officers your answer.
