  • Midnight Dew reckons you're the right man for the job.
  • Midnight Dew's eyes light up at your arrival. As the Roegadyn tells it, she's been charged with finding a willing and able adventurer to brave the halls of the Great Gubal Library to retrieve a certain leather-bound tome from the forbidden vaults on its uppermost floors. Complicating matters is a carelessly cast-open door, through which a host of voidsent and other unpleasant vistors have invited themselves in. Having heard the tales of your past exploits, Midnight Dew is convinced you'd be uniquely suited to sweeping the place clean and returning with the tome in question. Should you be willing to offer your services, make for the Dravanian hinterlands and rendezvous with her in front of the library's entrance.
  • Heartened by your eagerness to lend your aid, Midnight Dew provides you with directions to the portal that will lead you directly to the forbidden archives. What extradimensional terrors lurk within? What is the nature of this tome that Midnight Dew's undisclosed client seeks? Will the adventure ever be the same without your stalwart, swish-swish-arooing companion Broomsy? The answers to all these questions and more lie within.
※The Great Gubal Library (Hard) can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • You emerge from the halls of the Great Gubal Library with an ancient leather-bound tome in hand. Deliver it to Midnight Dew in Idyllshire, and hope that it is indeed the one her client seeks.
  • Upon receiving the tome, a delighted Midnight Dew promptly summons her heretofore-anonymous client, now revealed as Yayake, receptionist of the Thaumaturges' Guild. The bookish Lalafell swiftly confirms that the impressive volume is indeed that which she sought─to wit, a comprehensive catalogue of all the works of wisdom housed within the cavernous library's countless shelves. She further explains that recovering this index was but the first step in a grand plan to renovate the library, that it might once again serve as a center of learning for scholars the realm over. With a somewhat-concerning aside regarding destructive magicks she hopes to master with the library's resources at her disposal, she offers you her gratitude and due recompense for your efforts.

Now, here's the adventurer I was lookin' for! I've got a job that needs doin', and somethin' tells me you'd be just the one to do it.


Now, stop me if I've got this wrong, but a little bird told me that you'd been in and out of the Great Gubal Library─an' that a walkin', talkin' broom of all things showed you the way in.


Well, I suppose the latter bit's neither here nor there. Long story short, a certain personage has somethin' they want from that library─a hefty leather-bound tome, to be exact─and they've tasked me with findin' the right man to retrieve it.


There's just one rub. Seems some heedless interloper─mind you, I'm not lookin' to point fingers here─left the door to the forbidden vaults wide open, allowin' what seems like every voidsent and ensorcelled abomination in the Encyclopedia Eorzea to saunter right in. A right mess, I'm sure you agree.


Fortunately, the strappin' lad standin' in front of me knows the place like the back of his hand. I just need you to make like your broom friend, sweep out the nasties, and retrieve the tome for my client. Simple enough, right? I'll meet you there.
Quest Accepted

Ah, there you are. Good to see a man who doesn't shy away from a challenge. You'll see a sturdy-lookin' door just ahead and to your left. That'd be the entrance to the forbidden vaults.


This is as far as I can take you─it's in my contract, you see. Anyhow, my client and I are both countin' on you to retrieve that tome. Watch your back in there, and try to keep it down─it is a library, after all.
I don't much see the merit of a talkin' broom. More swishin', less yappin', I say. But enough about that─when you're ready to head into the library to retrieve that book for my client, just say the word an' head on over. I'll catch up with you there.
Back so soon? Hope you haven't changed your mind about helpin' me and my client retrieve that tome from the Great Gubal Library. You can bring along your broom friend if you're wantin' for company.
You'll find the entrance to the vaults just ahead and to your left. My client and I are both countin' on you to retrieve that tome, so watch your back in there. And try to keep it down─it is a library, after all.
Well, look who's back─and lookin' none the worse for wear, I might add. Well? What did you find in there?

And there it is! Or at least I think it is─to tell you the truth, those old, dusty tomes are all the same to me. Still, it certainly looks impressive, which I reckon should count for somethin'.


Anyhow, I'd best get the one person who can tell us one way or another. Don't go wanderin' off─I'll be right back.

Ah, Forename! When Midnight Dew informed me that an adventurer of impressive talents had managed to secure the tome for us, I surmised at once that it must be you.


After all, such a task would surely prove beyond the abilities of any ordinary man. But for our very own avatar of devastation? That is another story.
Quest Completed

Well, I'll be! Midnight Dew informed me that an adventurer of impressive talents had managed to recover the tome for us, but it is with some surprise that I find you here, Forename.


Truth be told, a part of me feared the task might prove too daunting. Had I known that one of our own initiates was on the job, it would have done much to put my mind at ease.


...And you must be the adventurer who procured the tome at our behest. I am Yayake of the Thaumaturges' Guild, and on behalf of my eminent colleagues, I thank you.


But let us not get ahead of ourselves. Pray let me see this volume you have retrieved, that I might confirm that it is the selfsame tome that we have so long sought.


Of Fiends and Faeries, One Thousand and One Immolation Incantations, Out of the Void: A Catalogue of Extradimensional Visitors and Preferred Methods for Their Extermination...


Gods be good, it's finally ours─the Great Gubal Library index!
Index...? You mean this book you've been searchin' so hard for is just some oversized list of...other books?

Just a list of books!? Why, this is a comprehensive catalogue of each and every tome and epistle housed within the single greatest repository of knowledge this realm has ever known!


The Sharlayans built this bastion of erudition and scholarly inquiry that Eorzea might benefit from wisdom compiled through the ages, only to see its treasures gather dust, their pages seen by none but the monstrosities that now haunt its halls. We would see the library restored to its former glory, and ascertaining the full breadth and scope of its contents is a modest─but most necessary─first step.
If the library were rebuilt, we'd see aspirin' scholars flock in from all corners of Eorzea─which would go a long way to buildin' Idyllshire into a real town. Whatever me and mine can do to lend a helpin' hand, you just say the word!

That is most heartening, indeed. Doubtless the reconstruction process will entail no small amount of menial labor in addition to the more intellectual duties that will be seen to by my colleagues and me.


Why, to think of the ever-surpassing heights of sheer destructive power that we might one day achieve has my hands simply shaking in anticipation. The road ahead will be long, but thanks to you, we take our first steps down it. Pray take this as a token of my gratitude.
