If you have the Den of Rancor Home Point #1, you can skip straight to the fight.

  • Temple of Uggalepih portion - obtain KeyItemPaintbrush of Souls to enter Den of Rancor.
    • Obtain Uggalepih Key from the Tonberry Cutter's around the temple of map1 (just walk through).
    • Trade the Uggalepih Key at the door to that tiny square room (with the little black dot) on the left side of Map1 at (F-7) to enter.
      • Everyone who wants to enter either needs their own Uggalepih Key or have someone with the key get inside and then Tractor them through.
    • Click on the 3 Worn Books, and then the Old Casket to get the KeyItemPaintbrush of Souls.

    • Just north on the map take the Northwest exit (Map1, F-5) to exit to Yhoator Jungle via (2).
    • Head west while in Yhoator to reach (3) and enter the Temple of Uggalepih's Map2.
    • Make your way south to (I-10) and kill the Temple Guardian. Make sure to stun Meltdown.
    • Go past the door and go north to that skinny rectangle room on Map2 (I-7) of the Temple.
    • In that room click on the empty Picture Frame once (don't jam Enter key).
      • Once you get the "a new painting begins to appear on the canvas" message, wait at least 30 seconds before hitting Enter to get the next message.
      • If you get aggro'd you have to click and wait 30s to click again.
    • A wall just north of you should open up a path to the Den of Rancor.
  • Den of Rancor portion - light the 4 torches in front of the Sacrificial Chamber to open it's gate and enter.
    • Kill Tonberry Imprecator (they're not far from where you enter) to obtain Unlit LanternRareExclusive if you have not already obtained it. You'll see them as you head to the Altar of Rancor ala the next step.

      Den of Rancor 1

    • Head to the Altar of Rancor (Map1, E-5) in that little circular room in the Northwest portion of Map1.
      • Trade your Unlit LanternRareExclusive to the flame to turn it into a Rancor FlameRareExclusive.
        • Bombs will aggro sight and bats sound. Make a macro if you care /item "Unlit Lantern" <t>
        • There are other Altar of Rancor deeper in the Den but those will render your Unlit Lantern useless for this quest. Luckily, you won't see them so you don't have to worry, unless you wander deeper for some other purpose.
    • Drop down the hole at the northeast corner of (F-7) on Map1 in order to reach Map2.
      • It's basically the hole closest to you. You passed it on the way to the Rancor Flame. They're those little darker patches on the map.
    • Head northwest to reach the 4 torches and the gate of the Sacrificial Chamber at Map2 (E-5).

      Den of Rancor 2

      • Trade your Rancor FlameRareExclusive to one torch to light it up and to get an Unlit LanternRareExclusive again.
      • All four torches need to be lit in order to open the gate.
      • Again, this is soloable. The torches don't go out.
      • Tonberries aggro sight and bats sound.
    • If you need more flames to light up more torches:
      • head back Southeast and then Northeast, basically hugging the left wall, to reach A of Map2 in order to reach the same North area of Map1 and get more flames until you've lit all the torches and pass the gate.
  • One of the NMs in the upcoming battle uses Everyone's Rancor. Be sure the tank has recently cleared Tonberry hate. It probably doesn't matter if you're level 99.

Sacrificial Chamber

  • After entering the Sacrificial Chamber, examine the Mahogany Door to enter the Battlefield.
    • The battlefield is capped at level 99 and limited to six players. Buffs wear upon entry (including Reraise), but Experience Points are not lost.
  • There are three Tonberry NMs. All three must be defeated to clear the battlfield. The recommended order in which to kill them is:
  • The Thief is completely immune to sleep, so you'll probably want to kill it while you Silence and/or Sleep the other two NMs.
  • The Summoner comes with a pet; a fire, water, or light elemental, chosen at random. It dies when its master does, so it need not be killed. The element of the pet is not an indication of which Astral Flow the Summoner will choose to use later in the fight.
  • At approximately 25% HP, the Thief may use Everyone's Rancor. The person this hits is liable to be K.O.'d in one shot if they have not recently reset their Tonberry hate.
  • The Summoner summons a random avatar for Astral Flow even if its elemental is asleep, so make sure your party is healed before waking it up. The maximum damage done by Astral Flow is approximately 700-800 without Shell or any sort of magical protection.
  • This fight can be completed solo by most jobs at 99 and is easily duoed. '(see testimonials)'
  • Clearing the battlefield gives a cutscene and places you in a different location from the entrance of the Sacrificial Chamber. Following this path leads back into Temple of Uggalepih away from the entrance to the Den.
  • After the cutscene you will obtain a KeyItemDark Fragment, for use in the next mission.
  • After the cutscene if you walk out of the Sacrificial Chamber, you will zone out to Map2 of the Temple of Uggalepih at the Northwest room.
  • If you're doing this for the Rhapsodies of Vana'diel prerequisite, you can now continue with that mission line.
