  • Lucinne is in need of an extra pair of hands.

Oh, you're the adventurer from before. Have you come for more work? Because I could certainly do with an extra hand or two.

My analysis of the samples you brought me is coming along quite nicely, but there is one more area I would have you investigate.

There's a cavern southeast of here, the Comet's Tail, so named for the glowing ore covering its walls and ceiling, as if the gods themselves captured starlight and placed it there.

Despite its supposed beauty, however, I have heard reports that the area has been adversely affected by pollution. As before I need you to procure three samples of the soil and one of the water so I can ascertain the truth of what has happened there.
Quest Accepted
Whatever damage has been done to that cavern, I pray it is not irreversible. I will require samples of both the soil and water there to be certain.
Did you have trouble procuring the samples?

Yes, this is perfect. Perhaps someday soon we can restore the cave to what it once was.

You see, the Comet's Tail was once a place of worship. Legend has it that, as the great flood of the Sixth Umbral Calamity swept across Eorzea, Rhalgr cast a great beacon into the sky to lead His people to safety. That beacon would one day fall to earth, and its remains are what illuminate that cave.

The Ala Mhigans placed altars within, and would often visit to offer up prayers to Rhalgr. Of course, that all changed when the Garleans came...

No one is certain for what purpose the cave was closed off, but some say it was used as a crude weapons research facility.

Whatever the truth may be, I will find it, and restore what was taken from the Ala Mhigans.

When that day comes, I hope you'll go and pay the Comet's Tail a visit.
