Quest Flow


To activate this quest, talk to Hayden, the Area Master for Dowe Valley.

Hayden will request that you investigate something for him. He tells you that near the catacombs, there are several statues of people that look as if they were fleeing from something. Are they villagers who have been turned into stone? If so, that means they can no longer return home. But if the demon that is responsible for this is left to roam, then the village's population are under a grave threat. The villagers cannot leave the village if there are dangerous beasts lurking nearby, and Hayden hopes that you will investigate the matter.


The first quest objective will appear; investigate the area near the Catacombs - カタコンベ, which is located at X 319, Y 321. Additionally, it would be wise to take certain precautions against Petrification, such as bringing a supply of Petrification Cures - 石化下し for this quest. As you approach the Catacombs, you will come across the stone 'statues' Hayden spoke of.


The creatures responsible for the villagers' plight are located nearby; some Level 68 Gargoyles. The quest objective will update: you will have to eliminate the creatures. Once you have done so, report back to Hayden at the village.

He will be shocked when you tell him of the Gargoyles near the Catacombs. He asks you if they were nesting there. Children have gone missing and their parents who went out to look for them must have been attacked by the Gargoyles. He regrets the loss. He will inform the villagers to stay away from the Catacombs, and on behalf of the village of Jingen, thanks you for investigating the matter. He will ask you if there were statues of children there, and when you tell him no, he wonders if the children had been attacked by Gargoyles as well, or something else happened to them.

The quest will now be marked as completed.

Speak to Hayden again to increase your local Area Rank to 13.
