  • Aldis has been arrested by the Brass Blades on suspicion of plotting to assassinate the sultana. Mylla believes the accusations to be an Alacran machination, and bids you to speak with Wymond on the Steps of Nald to see what information you can uncover regarding the conspiracy.
  • Wymond informs you that the poison found in Aldis's possession was Rhalgr's Bile. The recipe for this rare and expensive concoction is said to be a closely guarded secret of the Corpse Brigade, a gang of criminals headquartered at the Sepulchre in southern Thanalan. Infiltrate the Sepulchre and search for evidence that proves the Corpse Brigade supplied the Alacran with the poison.
  • Your search yields a vial of Rhalgr's Bile, along with records proving that the poison was sold to the Alacran, not Aldis. Report your findings to Mylla at the Gladiators' Guild.
  • Althought the guildmaster is overjoyed by your discovery, it seems your efforts may be for naught. The Sacrarium has ordered Aldis's execution, and your only hope of saving him is to present the evidence to the official overseeing the proceedings at Highbridge in eastern Thanalan. Hurry to the execution site and save Aldis from the headsman!
  • Aldis's execution serves to draw Leavold out of hidin, and the former champions face each other in single combat. As they duel, you and your guildmates battle Alacran henchmen atop the bridge. You defeat the criminals in time to see Aldis disarm Leavold, who chooses to take his own life rather than surrender to his rival. Return to the Gladiators' Guild and discuss the events of recent days with Mylla.
  • Having finally put an end to Leavold's machinations, Aldis decides to leave Ul'dah. Before he departs, he teaches you Shield Swipe, an advanced technique that serve him well in the Coliseum. He explains that he used it to defeat Leavold in his last official match seven years ago-- a match that triggered the events that would tear the two men and the woman they loved apart. After watching Aldis walk out of her life once more, Mylla rallies her gathered gladiators, declaring that they all have the potential for greatness-- but that it is up to them to determine their own destinies.
  • Talk to Wymond
  • Head to Southern Thanalan, the closest aether port is Little Ala Mhigo
    • Enter Sepulchre from the East along the top
    • Look for the Wrinkled Bill Of Sale on a desk in the first clearing
      • This will trigger 3xlv30 enemies to appear, defeat them (uncapped)
    • The next item is Rhalgr's Bile, in the second clearing on the ground level
      • This will trigger another 3xlv30 enemies. Again uncapped.
  • Return to Mylla
  • Head to eastern Thanalan, to Highbridge which is east of Camp Drybone
    • A battle ensues, you will be capped at lv34
    • The battle will contain many ~lv25 mobs
    • Take special care for conal moves; they are devastating in this fight
  • Return to Mylla at the guild to wrap up, you can now use Shield Swipe
For the final fight at Highbridge, the key is the focus on the mages. From where you start, you will pass by two pairs of Alacran, with one conjurer (Kindess) and a melee. Dispatch both sets and do the same to the archers on the stairs. At the top, take out the black mages (Humility), then proceed to the conjurer healing the main forces (Gotwin Halehex). [Note: if you ignore the pugilists and archers and just kill the mages, like this guide originally suggested, you run the risk of taking too much damage to finish the fight at lower levels.]

With Gotwin down, the Alacran will have no healing and the NPCs can easily mop up the mooks. However, a short while later Gigirya the Guarded will join the fight, coming from the northern stairs. He's a thaumaturge, but most importantly he can summon a Void Slave, which you will have to tank and defeat... if he actually summons it. Shield bash can interrupt his "Void Call" spell, preventing the Void Slave from joining the fight.

Once all the mages are down, it's a simple matter of cleaning up the rest. The Temperance that Mylla is fighting is the most difficult foe with the most HP, so take out all the other enemies first so your NPC allies will focus on the boss.
