Adventurer from Another World
To start the collaboration quest with Final Fantasy XIV added in patch 1.27, the player must head to Cauthess Rest Area after obtaining Ramuh in the story. The player can fast-travel there if they have visited the location previously, and the quest starts as soon as the location loads. The retinue hears a voice and follows it to the warehouse where they find Y'jhimei stuck under a gargantuan chocobo. The party must go to Wiz Chocobo Post to buy Premium Gysahl Greens from the kiosk (they cost 500 gil and the player can only buy one) and give them to the chocobo to free Y'jhimei. She heads off to Perpetouss Keep where the party is to follow. The player can now enter the keep by approaching the gate.
