Journal detail hr1 07.png NPCs Involved

  • Y'mhitra, the researcher at Apkallu Falls, wishes you to proceed with the next summoning ritual.
  • You have chosen to perform the Austerities of Earth. Speak with Y'mhitra southwest of Alder Springs in the North Shroud to begin the ritual, and attempt to bind a new egi to your will.
  • After following Y'mhitra's instructions, you summon and defeat the entity known as Titan-Egi. However, before you are able to celebrate, you find yourself under assault by a man who also appears to be a summoner. Though you manage to force the stranger to retreat, you are left bewildered by the unprovoked attack. Speak with Y'mhitra to see how she is faring in the aftermath.
  • You have spoken to Y'mhitra and confirmed that she is sound of body. Return with her to Apkallu Falls in Gridania to discuss the encounter further.
  • Y'mhitra, still somewhat shaken, wonders what could have motivated the haughty stranger's sudden attack. The researcher suggests that you spend some time exploring the capabilities of your new egi ally while she makes use of the Sons' resources to investigate the identity of the murderous summoner.
※The next summoner quest will be available from Y'mhitra upon reaching level 40.

Quest Accepted

The ritual you are about to perform is, essentially, no different from the Austerities of Flame.

Instead of fire, however, you will be concentrating on shifting your aetheric balance towards the spectrum of earth. Once you have achieved the required state of earthen affinity, the primal's captured essence will tumble forth and coalesce into the stony form of Titan-Egi.

As before, you must demonstrate unflinching authority if you would convince the newborn avatar to heed your commands. Let us begin!
Well, I suggest we return to Apkallu Falls─I have no desire to linger here and chance another encounter with...whomever that deranged mage was.

I must say, I did not expect to meet another practitioner of the summoning arts.

And I also did not expect to be suddenly fighting for my life. What precious treasure do we carry that this callous stranger was so willing to kill us to possess it?

Such mysteries aside, I am most glad you were able to secure Titan-Egi before the summoner decided to unleash his fiery avatar. Without its protection, I doubt we would have survived that conflagration.

The egi of earth─as was so aptly demonstrated─excels at defense. You should certainly take the time to explore its capabilities, as well as its limitations. Be careful, however, not to neglect your offense completely.

Meanwhile, I shall confer with my colleagues in the Sons of Saint Coinach, and see what I might learn of that hostile summoner. We shall meet anon.
Quest Completed
When you have the Soul of the Summoner equipped, casting the spell Summon II will now call upon Titan-Egi instead of Topaz Carbuncle.
