  • Lisette would send you across the realm to bring succor to those lost in love.
※This quest is available for a limited time only.
  • Summoning the holy powers of her ancestors, Lady Lisette has divined the identity and location of a young maiden who awaits the return of her lost love. Seek out the lass─Nemoh Maimhov of Gridania─and see how you might assist in soothing her aching heart.
※Please note that you will be unable to complete this quest after the seasonal event has ended. For details, please check the Lodestone.
  • Years have passed since the Calamity, yet Nemoh Maimhov patiently awaits the return of her betrothed, a soldier by the name of Gwayne. Recent talk of a visitor to Gridania matching Gwayne's description has filled the young maiden's heart with hope, yet she cannot work up the courage to investigate for herself. Make for Mih Khetto's Amphitheatre and see if there is any truth to the rumors.
  • Your search of the Amphitheatre turned up only Gwayne look-alikes, including a childhood friend of Nemoh's whose unrequited love drove him to a desperate act of deception. Your efforts, however, were not entirely unfruitful, as one of the Gwayne-esque individuals was able to provide you with information regarding the man's true whereabouts. Return and share the news with Nemoh Maimhov.
  • Though disappointed that Gwayne remains unfound, Nemoh Maimhov holds out hope that the man sighted at E–Tatt's Spire is indeed her lost love. Travel to the spire and seek out the man in question.
  • Good news followed by bad: you have successfully found Gwayne, but the man's memories─including those of his erstwhile betrothed─have been lost to a grievous battle wound, and he abruptly takes his leave. Return to Nemoh Maimhov and break the news as softly as you can.
  • Refusing to accept that her love has forgotten her, Nemoh unleashes her frustrations on her childhood friend Gylbart, then entrusts you with a box of chocolates to deliver to Gwayne, in hopes that his memory might yet be stirred. Gylbart, shaken but strong, would speak to you out of Nemoh's earshot, and asks that you meet him at E–Tatt's Spire.
  • Gylbart shares with you a sad revelation─the man named Gwayne was actually a notorious philanderer who swindled numerous women out of gifts and gil with empty promises of love and marriage. Out of kindness, he spared Nemoh the cruel truth, choosing to play the villain while he worked in secret to apprehend the true criminal. He entrusts Nemoh's chocolates to you, promising to remain by Nemoh's side as a friend, even if that is all he shall ever be.

From the Farreach to the Sea of Ash, hearts pine and yearn. How fare you in bringing them succor?

You know not where to look? Why did you not say so sooner!? By the powers vested in me by my ancestors, I shall divine for you the whereabouts of a heart in need!


What is this!? Oh, this will not do! Nemoh Maimhov, a gentle young maid of Gridania, passes many a sleepless night waiting tirelessly for her beloved to return to her embrace. In the name of House Valentione, I command you─see that this Valentione's Day marks the end of her solitude!
Hm? Pay me no mind, friend. I just enjoy the scenery here, that's...hm? A herald of love, you say? I suppose there's no harm in telling you my tale.

It feels like yesterday, and at the same time like ages ago. Before the Calamity, a handsome young soldier promised me his hand in marriage on the eve of his departure for the Battle of Carteneau─a battle from which he, sadly, would never return.


Family and friends alike tell me that he is lost─that I must accept his passing, and find another. And yet─call me a silly little girl, I care not─deep down, in my heart of hearts, I know that he still lives.


...And so I wait, and wait with eyes and ears open. Why, not bells ago, I caught wind of a rumor that a young Midlander with cheekbones high and locks of gold was sighted in Mih Khetto's Amphitheatre.
They say he dons a white beret adorned with a single plume─the selfsame gift I presented to my love before he went off to war. This is my Gwayne─yes, I am more certain than ever!
And yet, what if I am once again mistaken? The disappointment would be too much to bear. I beg of you, friend─would you be so kind as to go ascertain his identity in my stead?
Yes? Might I be of service to you, adventurer?

A winsome lass by the name of Nemoh pines for her beloved Gwayne? Indeed, fortune smiles upon her today! For I am...yes, I am none other than...


...None other than Gylbart, a thrice-damned lovesick fool who hoped against hope that posing as another man might win me the affections of she who would not otherwise give me the time of day.


I have loved Nemoh since we were both yea high to a goobbue, but to this day, she sees me as no more than that little boy, his hands soiled after a day of mischief in the Twelveswood. With the rumors of Gwayne's return, I thought, perhaps... But no, I will receive her love willingly or not at all.
Do take care, adventurer. There are rumors of a dangerous swindler in these parts of late.
Gwayne? The name is unfamiliar to me. I am but a humble adventurer, having recently found my way to these parts.

I, too, have lost friends and loved ones to the horrors of war─rare is the one who has not in this day and age. The poor girl has my sympathies.

Gwayne? I fear you've mistaken me for another. This is most curious, however...
It may be no more than a coincidence, but I could swear I heard talk of a man by that name on my last visit at E–Tatt's Spire. I can make no promises, but it is an avenue worth exploring, yes?

My love was nowhere to be found at the Amphitheatre, you say? <sigh> I suppose I deserve as much for getting my hopes up prematurely.

Hm? A man calling himself Gwayne was seen at E–Tatt's Spire!? Oh, you will travel there and investigate the rumors for me, won't you?


Whatever Gwayne's reason for not returning to me─his betrothed and beloved─it must be profound, indeed. Oh, I do hope that he is well...

Yes, I am Gwayne─what of it? Nemoh? The name is unfamiliar to me.

...As was my own name until a fortnight ago. I took an axe to the head at Carteneau, you see, and my memories of my past have not returned to me since.


The girl has my pity, but even if I saw her now, I would not know her from the Elder Seedseer. Aye, it is best that she and I both let go of the past. And with that, I must take my leave.
You have returned from the spire, yes? Oh, do tell me that you found my Gwayne!

L-Lost his memories!? But this cannot be!


I was his love, his destined one─he told me as much with his parting words! We had met not a fortnight before, but I had never felt so certain of anything in my life. <sob> Oh, my dearest Gwayne...


I beg of you, friend, take this to him. 'Tis a piece of chocolate made especially for my beloved on this Valentione's Day.
Tell him that even if he cannot recall my face or name, my love for him is as deep as─
Oh, Gylbart, pray listen! I have at long last found my beloved Gwayne, but he... H-His...
Enough, Nemoh! I have heard everything, and I cannot bear to see you go on like this any longer! Gwayne is not the man you once knew─this much is clear. For your own good, forget him and move on with your life!
You are wrong, Gylbart! Even to this day, you are nothing but a silly boy. Gwayne is my destined one, and it is but a matter of time before his memories return.
Open your eyes, Nemoh─the Gwayne you knew is dead!
H-How... How dare you!? You cold, heartless fool! I always knew you were jealous of the love that Gwayne and I shared, but I never knew you could be so cruel!
You are wrong, Nemoh. I say this only because I love you. Because I have always─
Love!? How dare you speak to me of love!? Begone from my sight! I never want to see your wretched face again! <sob> <sob>
I am sorry that you had to witness that, friend. I would speak to you further, but not here. Seek me out at E–Tatt's Spire, and speak not a word of this to Nemoh.

Ah, you've come. Behold the truth of the man named Gwayne.


...A philanderer and a swindler, through and through. Aye, Nemoh was not the only poor lass he offered his hand to before heading off to “battle.”
Hah! You're just jealous that I'm a hundred times the man you'll ever be!
Answer me this: how much gil did you earn from selling off all the presents you swindled from those poor girls? Enough to enjoy a nice vacation while your countrymen were fighting for their lives at Carteneau, no doubt!
Swindled? Watch your tongue, boy. Those presents were given willingly. What can I say? Such is the effect I have on the women around me. When was the last time a girl gave you anything but a hearty serving of rejection?
Silence! Men like you make me sick! I hope you've had enough romance to last a lifetime, because you'll be spending the rest of your years rotting away in gaol!

This is the truth I wanted you to see. You will keep this secret from Nemoh, yes?


I thank you. It was not easy to endure that tongue-lashing from my beloved, but playing the villain was the only way to save her from a truth far more cruel than anything she could have imagined.


What's that? A box of chocolates from Nemoh? Whatever would you have me do with this?
How will you answer?

Ask Gylbart to deliver the box to Gwayne.


Tell Gylbart to keep it for his own.
I cannot accept a gift that was not given willingly, nor deliver it to a man who betrayed poor Nemoh's gentle heart. No...if anyone deserves this gift, it is you, friend.
As for me, I have not given up hope. Nemoh still grieves, as well she should─the wounds are still fresh. Yet she is a strong girl. She will recover before long, and I will be there for her. As a friend, if that is what she would have me be...
Ouch, that smarts. The seven hells have no fury like a jilted lover, eh?
