  • Gerolt has reluctantly agreed to lend his expertise to the restoration of the legendary arm of yore. For the first step, the weaponsmith bids you to venture within Natalan in the Coerthas central highlands to retrieve the lost Gae Bolg. Examine the pertinent treasure coffer to find your prize.
  • You have obtained the timeworn Gae Bolg. Make your way back to Hyrstmill and present the relic to Gerolt.
  • According to Gerolt, the restoration process involves merging the old with the new - that is, embedding the original relic in a new host weapon. To this end, you must bring him a champion's lance melded with two savage aim materia III.
  • You have delivered the materia-enhanced champion's lance to Gerolt. The weaponsmith next directs you to go to the Weeping Saint in the Coerthas central highlands, and obtain alumina salts from the dhorme chimera.
  • You have painstakingly obtained the pinch of alumina salts. Make your way back to Hyrstmill and deliver it to Gerolt.
  • Using the alumina salts you brought him, Gerolt adds the finishing touches to your relic weapon. Even as he declaes his work over, however, the man believes that there is still something incomplete about it. In order to shed light upon the mystery, Gerolt suggests that you seek ot literature surrounding the hero associated with the relic. Perhaps the trader Rowena back at Revenant's Toll will be able to assist you in this endeavor.
  • You have consulted Rowena, who agrees to procure the literature you seek... for a price. For your part of the deal, you must obtain for her an Amdapor glyph. Make your way through Amdapor Keep in the South Shroud, and procure this artifact.
  • You have successfully obtained an Amdapor glyph. Make your way back to Revenant's Toll and deliver it to Rowena.
  • You give the Amdapor glyph to Rowena, who upholds her promise and furnishes a copy of The Book of Reinette. You now possess literature on the hero who once wielded the relic weapon. Gerolt the weaponsmith will be keen to peruse it.
  • After a cursory examination of the text, Gerolt declares that he will require some time to make sense of its contents. In the meantime, you are to familiarize yourself with the restored weapon in its current state. Armr yourself with the unfinished Gae Bolg, make your way to Natalan in Coerthas central higlands, and there slay eight Natalan boldwings, eight Natalan fogcallers, and eight Natalan swiftbeaks.
  • You have defeated the specified Ixal. Return to Hyrstmill and report your success to Gerolt.
  • Upon your return, Gerolt deduces that you must face mightier adversaries if you are to experience a revelation pertaining to your relic. To this end, he bids you challenge the hydra within Haltali, the abandoned training grounds situated in eastern Thanalan. Armed with the unfinished Gae Bolg, enter Haltali and defeat the hydra.
  • You have overcome the hydra. Take word of your accomplishment back to Gerolt at Hyrstmill.
  • Combining information gleaned from the text with your firsthand experience, Gerolt has ascertained what must be done next. Hand over the unfinished Gae Bolg to the weaponsmith.
  • Gerolt declares that but one step remains in the restoration. In order to create the raging fire that he needs, the weaponsmith bids you fetch him a white-hot ember, a howling gale, and a chunk of hyperfused ore. The first of these can b e obtained by defeating Ifrit within the Bowl of Embers (Hard).
  • You have extinguished the Lore of the Inferno and obtained a white-hot ember. Next, take on Garuda in the Howling Eye (Hard) and defeat her to obtain a howling gale.
  • You have silenced the Lady of the Vortex and obtained a howling gale. Next, take on Titan in the Navel (Hard) and defeat him to obtain a chunk of hyperfused ore.
  • You have buried the Lord of Crags and obtained a chunk of hyperfused ore. Deliver it along with the white-hot ember and the howling gale to Gerolt.
  • You have delivered the three items Gerolt requires to create a raging fire. Now he only wants for a bottle of Raz-at-Han quenching oil to complete the restoration of your relic. Obtain this item and deliver it to the weaponsmith.
  • You have delivered the bottle of Radz-at-Han quenching oil to Gerolt, who promptly sees to the final stage of the restoration process. After no small amount of effort and perseverance, you are now the proud owner of the Gae Bolg. May it serve you will in your adventures to come!
