  • The wandering minstrel has a request for an experienced adventurer.
※This quest is available for a limited time only.
  • Making your way through the Ruby Road Exchange during the Rising, you encounter the wandering minstrel, who asks you to take a fledgling adventurer under your wing. Thus do you make your way to the Gate of Nald, there to await a soul who has just embarked upon the path of adventure.
※Please note that you will be unable to complete this quest after the seasonal event has ended. For details, please check the Lodestone.
  • It doesn't take long for an aspiring adventurer to wander through the gate, nor for you to identify him. You approach the bright-eyed lad, who introduces himself as Nhagi'a Jakkya. He gratefully accepts your offer of help, and heads to the Quicksand to register with the Adventurers' Guild, as you yourself once did.
  • With the stroke of a pen and a few words of encouragement from Momodi, Nhagi'a's registration is complete. In view of your experience, the Quicksand proprietress then tasks you with giving the lad the grand tour, beginning with recommending a guild in Ul'dah to join.
  • Your sage advice helps Nhagi'a to settle on a guild. Wasting no time, he rushes off to add his name to its roll, but not before requesting to meet again afterwards. When the lad doesn't return after a good while, you decide to look in on him at the guild.
  • To your relief, you find Nhagi'a more than holding his own. After apologizing for keeping you waiting, he informs you that a peculiar minstrel had approached him with a task, and bade him come to the Ruby Road Exchange to speak further. Curiously, your own presence is also requested, and you make your way to see the client together.
  • As you had suspected, the client turns out to be the wandering minstrel. The man reveals that, in seeking inspiration for his next composition, he contrived to bring you and Nhagi'a together─an adventurer old and an adventurer new─in a reminder that the present owes its existence to the past. Having thus established his vision, the minstrel then asks each of you to bring him an object with a connection to the Calamity, the event which gave rise to the realm's rebirth. Excited for his first-ever task as an adventurer, Nhagi'a suggests taking your search to the Sapphire Avenue Exchange, where many vendors peddle their wares.
  • You join Nhagi'a at the Sapphire Avenue Exchange, and together begin looking for your objects.
※You must be accompanied by Nhagi'a Jakkya to complete this task. Speak with him again should you become separated.
  • You have visited a number of vendors and found promising wares for your purposes. Believing you've seen enough, Nhagi'a suggests heading to a quiet spot to discuss what you will bring to the minstrel.
  • You reveal your selection to Nhagi'a, but he chooses to keep his a surprise. Having then acquired your respective items, you head back to the Ruby Road Exchange, where the wandering minstrel awaits.
  • You present your acquisition to the minstrel, who declares its suitability for his composition before turning his attention to Nhagi'a. The lad reveals his object to be the scrapbook of articles taken from The Raven, the Gridanian tabloid where his sister works as a reporter. During the Calamity, said sister traveled the realm, interviewing adventurers about their journeys, and her tales instilled in him the desire to see the world. Your combined contributions serve to inspire the minstrel, who conceives of a verse and proceeds to perform it. No sooner does he strum the first chord than you are transported to a place beyond time and space, where you meet with the mysterious Naoki Yoshida. The man thanks you for continuing to grace the realm with your presence, and hints that change is coming. Yet come what may, he hopes that your journey together shall ever continue.
Returning to reality, you bid Nhagi'a well as he sets off on his own. And after the young adventurer has disappeared from sight, the minstrel performs for you another song─one of futures unknown and journeys unending. Hardships may await upon the road ahead, and there may be times when you feel defeated. But so long as you harbor love for this world, ever shall there be a place for you in it.

Please browse my exhibit at your leisure. Each and every piece has been lovingly crafted in honor of the Rising.
I'm pleased to present the works of J'bhen Tia, the brightest new star in the world of glass art. His artistry and craftsmanship will astound and inspire you!

If first The Rising event. If subsequent The Rising event.
Greetings, friend. By your dauntless bearing, I assume you are an adventurer.
As for myself, I am a humble wandering minstrel. One who draws inspiration from the daring deeds of those in your calling.
Ah, if it isn't my dear adventurer friend! Pleased am I to see you again. Have you perchance come to join us in remembering the Calamity?
If you have a moment, there is a favor I would ask of you. Will you not hear me out?
If Moonfire Faire (2022) is incomplete. If Moonfire Faire (2022) is complete.
Of late, more people are seeking to take up adventuring.
In part due to the promotional efforts during the recent Moonfire Faire, more people are seeking to take up adventuring.
Not all are yet wise in the ways of the world, however, and I fear they might fall prey to less-principled types in Ul'dah.

If one such as you were to help them on their way, I would feel more at ease. What say you? Will you not take a fledgling adventurer under your wing?


I'm truly grateful!


Now, I believe a carriage is due to arrive shortly. If you go and wait at the Gate of Nald, chances are a soul will wander in who has just embarked upon the path of adventure. Pray greet them and offer your help.


Worry not, you'll have no trouble identifying them. You need but look for someone absorbed in their surroundings.


Hehe, I daresay it will feel like glimpsing into the past─right to the part where you are greeted by a helpful stranger.

What will you say?
Oi, adventurer! Over here! Is this your first trip to Ul'dah? Welcome to Ul'dah!
Wh-Who are you?

An experienced adventurer, you say? And you want to help me on my way?


Well, I could certainly use some guidance. I've never been anywhere near as big and busy as Ul'dah...
My name is Nhagi'a Jakkya, but just “Nhagi” will do. And as you rightly guessed, I'm an aspiring adventurer. That's why I left my village and came here.

So...I understand that you first need to register at the Adventurers' Guild. Do you know where it is?


Just through that door, is it? Thank you, I'll head there at once!
System
Nhagi rushes off before you can offer further explanation. Perhaps you should follow him to the Quicksand.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene end.

In...and out... In...and out... Come on, Nhagi, you can do it...
Oh, it's you again... To be honest, I'm quite nervous. It's heartening to have you here too.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene start.
Why, hello there. What can I do for you today?
The lad's here to register, is he?
Yes, madam, I wish to join the Adventurers' Guild! My name is Nhagi'a Jakkya, and I'm sixteen years old─practically a man grown!
Hehe, aren't we a lively one? Momodi's the name, and if you want to be an adventurer, then you've come to the right woman.

There's nothing to it, really─you just need to write your name in the register. Come, come...


With that, you're officially a member of the Adventurers' Guild. If you ever need a bit of advice about one thing or another, pay me a visit. Just don't go botherin' me every time you stub your bloody toe, all right?


'Course, I do enjoy hearin' tell of a gentleman's woes with the womenfolk from time to time...


Now then, normally I'd offer you the grand tour...


But in light of present company, I reckon you ought to have it from him.
If The Ultimate Weapon is incomplete. If The Ultimate Weapon is complete.
He's your senior in adventurin', after all, and you could do worse than to get his advice.
He's a renowned adventurer, after all─the bleedin' champion of Eorzea─and you could do far worse than to get his advice.
To begin with, mayhap you could recommend a guild here in Ul'dah for Nhagi to join?
If it's too noisy in here, there are benches just outside where you can have a nice little chat.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene end.
With your experience, I reckon you could give Nhagi some sound advice on a guild to join. Go on, have a little chat and see what might suit him.

I must confess, choosing a guild is quite daunting... I'd appreciate any advice you can offer.
System
The following event cannot be skipped. You may wish to cancel any pending Duty Finder registrations.
What will you say?
All right, let's talk guilds. Give me just a moment.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene start.
I'm all ears, Forename!
What will you say?
Adventuring can be dangerous. What attracted you to it? Why did you want to become an adventurer?
A merchant who was in the carriage with me─a Bre...something─asked me much the same thing.

At the time, I couldn't give a proper answer. I had a reason for leaving home, of course, but I couldn't express it in words.


But having now set foot in Ul'dah, it's become clear in my mind.


I wanted to know what lay beyond the horizon. Wanted to see it with my own eyes and be amidst it.


You've been to many places, right? You like it, then? Traveling, that is...
What will you say?
I love traveling. There's nothing like the thrill of seeing new sights. Traveling is nice, but I'd prefer to put my roots down somewhere.
So you do, so you do...

I have an older sister. During the Calamity, we fled Gridania and took refuge in a village in the mountains.


I ended up staying in that secluded place, and it's long been a dream of mine to travel the world.
Truly? That's a little unexpected...
And yet...perhaps it's when we've seen the world that we know there's a perfect place for us. One we'd like to call home.
But inexperienced as I am, I don't know if I could live a life on the road. Is there a guild that could equip me with the skills I need?
What guild will you recommend?
One representing students of the fighting arts. One representing crafters and gatherers.
I see, a place where I can learn how to protect myself and others... If I recall correctly, Ul'dah is home to the Pugilists' and Thaumaturges' Guilds.
Of those two, I'd choose the pugilists. I've always enjoyed rigorous exercise, and am quite confident in my physical abilities. Yes, I believe this is the guild for me! I'll go and join at once!
I see, a place where I can learn a trade... Indeed, we can't always rely on fighting to make a living, and having the ability to gather or craft would be invaluable.
If I recall correctly, Ul'dah is home to the Alchemists' Guild. I happen to have some familiarity with medicinal herbs, and I daresay I can put the knowledge to use. Yes, I believe this is the guild for me! I'll go and join at once!
What will you say?
Will you be all right by yourself? I can show you to the guild if you like.
Thanks for your concern, but I should be fine.

If you still have time, though, could we meet again afterwards? There are a few more things I'd like to ask you about.


Great! I'll look for you here when I'm done!
System
You wait a good while, but Nhagi is nowhere to be seen. Perhaps you should look in on him at the Pugilists' Guild.

That was a most impressive display, young one! Watching you, I'm reminded of myself in my youth─swift, strong, and handsome. Not to say that I'm not these things anymore, of course...
You're too kind, Master Hamon! And I'm sure you're still all those things and more!
Now, now, Nhagi, take care you don't flatter the old man overmuch. His neck couldn't bear his head getting any larger.
Oh, Forename! I'm glad to say that pugilism agrees with me. My thanks for your recommendation!

Right then, my boy. Remember today's lesson well, and keep at your training. Next time, we shall try something a little harder!
I'm sorry for keeping you waiting. So engrossed was I in the combinations, I lost track of time...

Oh, I should mention something. As I was training, a peculiar minstrel approached me. He said that, if I'm resolved to walk an adventurer's path, I should seek him out for a task.


Moreover, he asked that you accompany me. If you're willing, he's apparently waiting at the Ruby Road Exchange.

Ah, my loyal assistant, you are come at a good time! This fool of a trainee switched my drinking water with some unknown fluid...which I unwittingly imbibed!
I-I'm sorry, Master Severian, but it was just a herbal tea. Y-You looked weary, and I thought that it might help...
Why in the seven hells didn't you say so first!? That way I might have recorded my vital signs and ascertained the tea's effects!

Such negligence ill befits an alchemist, and I ought to kick you out of my laboratory right now!


Still...you completed the assigned tasks perfectly. In light of this, you have earned another chance. Very well, you may serve as my assistant─on a probationary basis.
...Ahem. I'm sorry you had to see that, Forename. But it seems all is well...at least for now.

Master Severian truly lives and breathes alchemy. Though the tea is quite bitter, he thought only of its effects and made no comment on its taste. I believe I stand to learn much under him, and I'll do my best not to incur his ire.


I must also apologize to you for keeping you waiting. So engrossed was I in the potion making, I lost track of time...


Oh, and one other thing. As I was at my work, a peculiar minstrel approached me. He said that, if I'm resolved to walk an adventurer's path, I should seek him out for a task.


Moreover, he asked that you accompany me. If you're willing, he's apparently waiting at the Ruby Road Exchange.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene end.
Hm, my body feels marginally warmer... It would seem the tea has the effect of promoting circulation...

Here he is, Forename─the minstrel.
My friend, you have done a splendid job as a guide. I was right to entrust the task to you.
What? Do you mean to say Forename approached me at your behest?
He did, I must confess. You see, for my next composition, I seek to capture the essence of the times. While any number of subjects would be worthwhile, of greatest interest to me is the recent rise in the ranks of adventurers.

In thus bringing different generations of adventurers together, I had hoped for inspiration to strike...and I'm pleased to say that it has!


Drawing upon your experience walking your path, you have helped Nhagi to begin walking his─a reminder that the present owes its existence to the past.


That is to say, the present and the past are deeply entwined. If we would capture the former, we cannot well disregard the latter. And this brings me to my next request...


I ask that you each find an object with a connection to the Calamity─the event which gave rise to the realm's rebirth─and present it to me with its tale.
Well now, that sounds not unlike a treasure hunt...and it'd be my very first task as an adventurer! What do you say, Forename? Shall we do it?
Excellent. When you have your items, pray seek me out at the Ruby Road Exchange. I eagerly look forward to seeing what you bring.
There are many vendors at the Sapphire Avenue Exchange, right? Chances are they'll have something, so let's begin our search there!
Come on, let's begin looking around!

Objects with a connection to the Calamity, you say? Why, I have just the thing─an amethyst ring from Ishgard, steeped in sentimental value!


Five years ago, on the eve of the Battle of Carteneau, a young Temple Knight set out from his homeland, wishing to do his part for Eorzea when his nation would not.


Alas, the man never arrived in the Flats.


En route, he came upon a merchant being attacked by a dragon...and lost his life going to the stranger's aid. This was his ring─an heirloom passed down through his line.
What a tragic tale... But I wonder─how did the ring find its way back? If the knight fell, it seems the merchant couldn't have survived unscathed...
Um...er... A-Ah, I remember now! Though the knight was mortally wounded, he succeeded in striking down the dragon. And with his last breath, he entrusted the ring to the merchant. Y-Yes, that's how it happened!
So, what do you say? If you're interested, I would be willing to part with the relic for a special price─but for today only!

Hmmm, this feels a bit dubious...

I'm still working at my craft, as you can see. And for the Rising this year, Astin has organized this street exhibit for me. Please feel free to browse at your leisure, and don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
We're looking for objects that bear a connection to the Calamity. Do you have anything that fits the description?
As a matter of fact, I do! Yonder pane, entitled The Sultana's Seven, depicts an inspiring event from the Calamity!

'Twas the final days before the fall of Dalamud, its inexorable approach foretelling our impending doom. Panic spread like wildfire, while many in their desperation turned on the sultanate. Looting and rioting broke out across Ul'dah.


To quell the masses, Her Royal Majesty Nanamo Ul Namo took to the streets with a guard consisting of only seven subjects, for they alone had the courage to stand with their sultana. There, she addressed the rabble.


"Heed me, my beloved citizens! The realm lies upon the brink of the Seventh Umbral Era. Yet so long as we live, we must not forget our compassion. Now is not the time to take from your neighbor, but to proffer him the hand of succor.“


Brought to their senses by her words, the people laid down their arms and set about healing the wounds they themselves had inflicted on Ul'dah. And those who returned from the battlefield found their home much as they had left it: a gleaming jewel in the desert.

Her Majesty sounds like a great ruler.

Ul'dah is fortunate to have her watching over it.


Thanks for sharing the tale. It's indeed inspiring, and you've done an incredible job capturing it in glass!

Hmmm, objects to do with the Calamity... The two of you are adventurers, are you not? In which case, I have something that may be of interest.


It's a journal I acquired from an adventurer who retired injured. The man recorded his experiences during the Calamity in detail, and I daresay it has value for students of history.
Oho, an adventurer's firsthand account! I'd love to pore over it!
Do you keep a journal of your adventures as well, Forename? If so, I'd love to read it too one day. With your permission, of course...
Oh, for another historical piece, I also have a scrapbook of articles from The Raven, Gridania's leading tabloid. These mainly cover events outside the Calamity, however...

Talking to myriad people, learning the tale behind each object... It's been a great experience, and I won't soon forget it.


Now then, we need to decide what we want to take to the minstrel. Have you made up your mind?
What will you say?
The Ishgardian knight's ring. The Sultana's Seven pane. The retired adventurer's journal.
I see, I see. I did consider that too, but in the end settled on something else.

If you chose The Ishgardian knight's ring. If you chose The Sultana's Seven pane. If you chose The retired adventurer's journal.
A knight who set out to fight for the realm and gave his life for a stranger... Be it fact or fiction, 'tis a moving tale of valor and sacrifice.
It reminds us that, though many events may be beneath history's remembrance, they may have altered the lives of those who lived them.
Ah yes, The Sultana's Seven, I know it well. 'Tis an iconic tale of leadership amidst great adversity.
It may be said that Her Majesty's actions that fateful day helped to forge Ul'dah as it is now. In that sense, it well suits the theme for my composition.
The journal of an adventurer, you say... Despite the vendor's claims, such records typically do not have much historical value, on account of their limited perspective and inherent partiality.
Yet by the same token, they have great value to me, for they offer a glimpse into the writer's heart. There is no richer material for penning verses.
Now then, what of you, young Nhagi?
And what might this be?
It's a scrapbook of articles from The Raven.

You see, my sister is a reporter for the tabloid. During the Calamity, she traveled the realm, interviewing adventurers about their journeys. And I loved nothing more than to hear her tales.


They seemed like such a diverse crowd, adventurers. No two people were alike. And yet they were united in the free, unshackled lives they lived. It struck a chord with me, and in time I found myself admiring them.


Looking back, it was my sister who instilled in me the desire to see the world─to become an adventurer. That's why I chose this scrapbook.
I see... The footprints someone leaves on their journey become the starting point for another...
Yes, a verse comes to me─a blessing for those souls who are taking their first chary steps into the unknown. Pray, lend me your ears...
Greetings, Warrior of Light.
This is a world that exists outside your reality. Could it be a dream? A flight of fancy conjured by your weary mind? Perhaps...or perhaps not.

If first The Rising event. If subsequent The Rising event.
'Tis a pleasure to make your acquaintance. My name is Naoki Yoshida, and I have beckoned you here that I might express my gratitude.
'Tis a pleasure to meet you again. As I have in the past, I have beckoned you here that I might express my gratitude.
First of all, I wish to thank you for continuing to grace us with your presence. You and your fellow adventurers are our inspiration, and this shall never change.

The world, however, is an ever-changing place, mysterious in its elusiveness.


Unexpected hardships may turn our lives upside down. And though we all desire peace deep in our hearts, the sparks of conflict never cease to be struck.


Like an adventurer's journey, the world is constantly moving towards the unknown, and it takes considerable courage to alter course.


Yet I ardently believe that it is a small-but-significant step in our quest to create new adventures.


Indeed, another great change is about to visit the world, and it shall open the way to exciting new journeys.


And 'tis our abiding hope that our journey together shall ever continue on, to the distant horizon and beyond.


...Now, the time has come for this vision to end; time for your eyes to open from this waking dream.


Return to walking your path, and know that you are in our hearts always.


Till next we meet, I bid you safe travels.
Thank you for the generous reward─and the uplifting verse. It gives me courage for the road ahead.
Speaking of which, it's time I set out on my own. Though it was brief, I enjoyed our time together, and I hope to see you again, somewhere out there!
What will you say?
Come what may, never forget to smile. Pass my regards to your sister. I look forward to hearing your tales.
Though much and more was lost in the Calamity, intrepid souls continue to set forth, paving the way unto the future. In such a moment in history do we stand, and for you I would perform another song.

Your life is a riddle, to bear gladness and grief,
'Neath stars and through storms, the answers to seek.♪
Your footprints are threads, to be gathered and woven,
A song of dawn resplendent, dancing high to the heavens.♪


From the embrace of the gods though mankind has been torn,
Upon winds eternal lives and memories are borne.♪


The future is unwritten, bring it rapture or sorrow,
Our journey shall continue, unto tomorrow and tomorrow.♪


I wonder─how did you feel as you watched Nhagi set off? Did the sight fill you with worry for a fledgling adventurer? Or did it awaken fond memories of your own humble beginnings?


Whichever it may be, I know that yours is a journey more trying than most. There will be times when you are overcome by loneliness, and each step feels heavier than the last. In such a moment, I bid you remember this:


So long as you harbor love for this world, ever shall there be a place for you in it. Your adventures will never end.

The end of one journey marks the beginning of another. For all those who continue to forge on in a world risen from the ashes, this humble minstrel would offer a song...
(- Male Roegadyn Adventurer -)
Well an' good to follow your heart─just don't follow it off a cliff.
(- Female Elezen Lancer -)
“Don't follow heart off cliff”...
Got it, sir!
(- Male Lalafell Thaumaturge -)
Oh, the places I want to see!
