Wrinkled Bill Of Sale, Rhalgr's Bile

  • First Sword Mylla is extremely upset due to a recent turn of events...
  • 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.
  • Although 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 hiding, 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 explains that he was once offered a sultan's ransom in exchange for a loss against Leavold, but he chose to preserve his honor instead—a choice 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.

I was wonderin' when you might come along, Forename. Frankly, I'm surprised Aldis went so quietly. He ought to know there's no walkin' away from this...

What will you ask?
What happened between Aldis and Leavold seven years ago?
Why would Aldis surrender himself?

You really don't know, do you? Best I start at the beginnin', then.

You really don't know, do you? Best I start at the beginnin', then.

Aldis is somethin' of an enigma. He and Leavold were two of the greatest gladiators ever to grace the bloodsands. But he threw all that hard-fought glory away for a few gil more.

See, the average Ul'dahn loves a good Coliseum fight. And what better way to make a gladiatorial spectacle more entertainin' than wagerin' on the outcome?

So when it got out that Aldis was orchestratin' a match-fixin' scheme of untold proportions, can imagine the shock an' anger the people felt. He was expelled from the Coliseum, an' his wins were stricken from the record.

Your guildmaster Mylla got the worst of it, though. Not only was her friend exposed as a fraud, but around the same time, her father fell ill an' passed away. There were some oddities surroundin' his death, too... 'Twas rumored he took his own life out of shame for his disgraced pupil, or that he might've even been murdered by the man. Baseless conjecture, really, but it made Aldis look that much worse.

In the end, Mylla lost two of the most important men in her life, an' was forced to take charge of the guild alone. And Leavold? He tried to go it solo on the bloodsands, but it wasn't the same. Without Aldis, his career was finished.

Now you know the nature of the man you so desperately want to save. Though, judgin' from that look in your eyes, I gather you still have your reservations.

<sigh> Fine, then. Though you can't blame me for doubtin' a man found in possession of Rhalgr's Bile.

'Tis a vile poison─rare an' expensive, too. Only the Corpse Brigade knows how to make it, I hear. Gods only know why they'd give it to Aldis. Could go to their headquarters at the Sepulchre in southern Thanalan an' ask 'em direct, I reckon.

I've an aversion to direct confrontation, personally─but you don't, do you?

By the by, should you save the poor bastard's life, tell him we're even─an' that I hope it was all worth it.
Your actions have attracted unwanted attention...
Your actions have attracted unwanted attention...
Where have you been, Forename!? Aldis has been given over into the custody of the Sacrarium! They mean to execute him! We must do something!

Th-This poison, is it...? <gasp> You've proof that the Alacran purchased it from the Corpse Brigade! Thank the gods, you've done it!

Quickly, we must show this to the official presiding over his execution at Highbridge! Go, now!

The Sacrarium has sentenced you to death for your crimes against the sultanate. Have you any last─

Huh!? Who are you, and what do you want!?
We must go now, Forename! To Highbridge!
We tried to delay them, Forename, but they've already taken Aldis below. Hurry, before it's too late!

I'm glad you were there, Forename. Without you, I doubt we could have defeated the Alacran.
Have you ever considered the Coliseum? You'd make a wonderful attraction. Of course, you'd need a title that befits your prowess.
...Now that it's all over, you'll be staying, won't you?

No. Leavold may be dead, but the Alacran are far from finished. I'd rather not linger and give them a chance to regroup and seek revenge.

It is a true tragedy that I cannot enjoy the company of Ul'dah's lovely ladies any longer, but I have faith that equally radiant beauties await me in distant lands.
Aldis, I─

Not another word, my dear. It's bad enough that the First Sword has permitted a disgraced gladiator to fraternize with her subordinates. Can you imagine the scandal if she became personally involved with the man?

Nevertheless, I understand how you feel, Mylla. I'm known to have this effect on the fairer sex.
I should've let the headsman have his way with you. That way you might learn something of humility.

Ah, but how am I supposed to remember the lesson without a head?

Your father would be proud of you, Mylla. Don't ever change.

Ah, yes─there's one more thing I wanted to say to you before I go, Forename.

Seven years ago, before my last match on the bloodsands, I was given an offer. A sultan's ransom in exchange for a loss. Leavold begged and pleaded, but I...I just couldn't do it.

Call it honor or pride or whatever you like. I made my choice, and in spite all that came of it, to this day I have no regrets.

It's a simple thing to know what's right. Listen to that heart of yours and it will never lead you astray.

Trust in your comrades, have faith in your skills, and you will triumph over any adversity.

And with that, I bid you all farewell.

...I'd better not have to wait seven years to see that bastard again.

There's still so much I want to─

What in the seven hells are you all looking at!? This is a training hall! Why aren't you all training right now!?

You think all it takes to stand on the bloodsands is a sword and a stupid grin? No! It takes years of hard work, an ocean of blood and sweat, and an unbreakable will! Every man and woman here has the potential to become a champion, but it is you─and you alone─who decides your destiny.

So answer me now, gladiators! Will you follow in the footsteps of your brothers and sisters and inscribe your names in legend!?

Edit The Rematch's Dialogue

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.

  • 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
