  • Trouble is brewing this All Saints' Wake, and Godriquelain needs your help to keep it from boiling over.
※This quest is available for a limited time only.
  • It is All Saints' Wake, and the Continental Circus is in town to help the citizens celebrate. According to Godriquelain, however, the members of this traveling troupe are in fact fiends in disguise. He asks that you answer the troupe's call for volunteers, that you may get close to its members and determine whether they pose a threat. If you would oblige him, speak with the uncanny illusionist at Mih Khetto's Amphitheatre, and offer her your services.
※Please note that you will be unable to complete this quest after the seasonal event has ended. For details, please check the Lodestone.
  • In excited tones, the uncanny illusionist informs you of her troupe's mission to see that everyone has a frighteningly good time during All Saints' Wake. Using her arts to bestow upon you a frightening form, she bids you terrorize people in Old Gridania.
※If the illusion wears off, you may receive it again by speaking with the uncanny illusionist.
  • You have finished making your round of Old Gridania. Make your way back to Mih Khetto's Amphitheatre and report to the uncanny illusionist.
  • Strangely, the uncanny illusionist seems disappointed to hear that your guise was met with delight rather than fright. Having regained her composure, she bids you assist with the festivities over in Limsa Lominsa, but not before muttering some rather unsettling things. Return to Godriquelain and report all that you have learned.
  • Godriquelain believes that the Continental Circus may be attempting to usher in the legendary Night of Devilry, when creatures of darkness descend upon the realm. The investigation will next take you to Limsa Lominsa; make your way there, and seek out Godriquelain at the Aftcastle.
  • You arrive at the Aftcastle to find Godriquelain waiting and eager to pick up where you left off.

You're an adventurer like myself, are you not? I realize we've only just met, but I am in dire need of help. Hear me out, I beg you.

You may be familiar with a traveling troupe of entertainers called the Continental Circus. Its members have come to the three city–states to help the people celebrate All Saints' Wake...or so they claim.


Lest we spread undue panic, what I am about to tell you, I ask that you keep in the strictest confidence: the members of this troupe are not people, but fiends who possess the ability to alter their form at will.


Since setting up for the festivities, they have yet to do any harm, but there is no guarantee that that will remain the case. The safety of the citizens being paramount, the Adventurers' Guild has tasked me with keeping watch for suspicious activity.
Upon learning that the circus is recruiting helpers, I thought to volunteer myself that I might get close to its members and determine if they pose a threat. Alas, at some point, they became aware of my intent, and I can no longer proceed as planned. This is where you come in.

Your face is not yet known to circus members, I believe, and you should be able to volunteer your services without arousing suspicion. If you are willing, head into Mih Khetto's Amphitheatre, and speak with the illusionist on the stage.


Volunteering your services to the Continental Circus may be the only way to determine if it poses a threat. If you'd be willing, head into Mih Khetto's Amphitheatre, and speak with the illusionist upon the stage.
Greetings, adventurer! It seems to me you're wanting for something to do. Our circus troupe is in town to help the people celebrate All Saints' Wake, and we're in need of volunteers.

As you may know, All Saints' Wake used to be terrifying business. While the saints feasted in the heavens, the fiends wreaked havoc on the realm below.


But these days, the Wake is all about having fun, and we of the Continental Circus have made it our mission to see that everyone has a frighteningly good time!


How do we mean to achieve this, you ask? Through the art of illusion, that's how! I shall cast a spell that will lend you a most frightening guise. While in that guise, I would have you terrorize the citizens.
The people you see in Old Gridania should make suitable victims. But without further ado, let the terror begin!

If the glamour wears off, just return here, and I'll cast it on you again. Now, off you go to frighten the citizenry!


Your glamour has worn off, has it? Well, that is easily remedied. Now, off you go to frighten the citizenry!
How fares the investigation? If you learn aught of interest, be sure to let me know.

Uwaaah!

...Oh, it's only you. By your appearance, I take it that the investigation is faring well. If you learn aught of interest, be sure to let me know.
A monster!? Nophica protect us! ...No, wait. We are in the midst of All Saints' Wake, are we not? It must be some kind of illusion. A fiendishly convincing one, to be sure, but an illusion nonetheless.
My lady! T-To what do I owe the pleasure of your presence? ...No, wait. This is highly unlikely. It must be some kind of illusion. A fiendishly convincing one, to be sure, but an illusion nonetheless.
Ah, so I was right! This calls to mind the time I first witnessed sylphic glamours. I was but a child, and was rather awed by it all.

Since then I've had something of an interest in illusions, and yours, my friend, is most impressive. My day was anything but eventful until you came along, and I thank you for the diversion.


The Wood Wailers are up in arms. There are whispers that sylphs have stolen into the city, blending in with the crowd during the festivities.


It has been a while since I've seen such an impressive illusion. My thanks for the diversion, adventurer.
A fiend!? How did you manage to get past the gate guards!? No matter─I shall take care of you myself!

E-Elder Seedseer! W-We were not expecting you! I mean, your visit does us great honor!


...What? An illusion!? <sigh> In light of the season, I suppose I ought not be surprised... But festivities or no, I would thank you not to startle me like that!


But no... It isn't right for me to direct my anger at you. 'Tis my own fault that I failed to see through your guise. If I am to perform my duties as Wood Wailer, I must learn to discern truth and falsehood at a glance...
Security within the city has been tightened during All Saints' Wake. If you have business with us, I ask that you keep it brief.
It troubles me deeply that I could not see through your illusion. If I am to perform my duties as Wood Wailer, I must learn to discern truth and falsehood at a glance.
Most peculiar... Though your form is that of a fiend, your aura tells me otherwise. Some manner of illusory magic is at work, I am certain of it.

My lady. Is there aught you require?

...No, something is amiss. Though your form is that of the Elder Seedseer, your aura tells me otherwise. Some manner of illusory magic is at work, I am certain of it.
A spell woven by a member of the Continental Circus? Most intriguing...

Among the ranks of voidsent, there are those who possess the ability to alter their form. I have had occasion to encounter such fiends, and I can say that the glamour you wear is no less convincing than theirs...


The city is come to life in celebration of All Saints' Wake. Let us give thanks to the elementals for granting us the peace to engage in light-hearted revelry.


Among the ranks of voidsent, there are those who possess the ability to alter their form. I have had occasion to encounter such fiends, and I can say that the glamour you wear is no less convincing than theirs...
Done your round of Old Gridania, have you? Marvelous! Here, allow me to remove the illusion for you.

So, how did you fare? You gave the people a right proper fright, yes? Sent them fleeing, crying for their mammies?


...What? They enjoyed it, you say? But they were supposed to be terrified! What went wrong?


<sigh> At this rate, there won't be enough terror. And if we don't gather enough terror, we can't usher in the Night of Devilry, like that woman said...
Errr... I was, um...rehearsing my lines in a play for the festival! Scary stuff, right? Right!

Th-Thanks to you, the people of Gridania are having a splendid All Saints' Wake! We'd be most grateful if you could spread the fun to Limsa Lominsa!


The stars are aligned! We shall recreate the Night of Devilry, that terror may reign over─ Er, I mean... Let us make this year's All Saints' Wake the most enjoyable in living memory!
Heh heh heh... The most enjoyable indeed...
Thanks to you, the people of Gridania are having a splendid All Saints' Wake! We'd be most grateful if you could spread the fun to Limsa Lominsa!
Ah, you're back! And with useful information, I hope?

...The Night of Devilry, you say? This investigation has borne more fruit than I had dared hope.


Legend has it that, on the Night of Devilry, creatures of darkness led by a pumpkin-headed fiend shall descend upon the realm and wreak unimaginable havoc.


If the illusionist's words are to be believed, the Continental Circus means to usher in this night of terror and destruction. Yet by your account, they have only succeeded in bringing joy to Gridania. What are they playing at? Is this but the laughter before the screams?
We have learned only enough to be worried, but not enough to take decisive action. We must continue our investigation. They bade you go to Limsa Lominsa to “spread the fun,” and it is thither that we must go. I shall go on ahead─seek me out at the Aftcastle when you arrive.
Ah, there you are, my friend. Time is of the essence, so let us get started.
