MS Leafre Icon.png This Party Quest is located in the Cave of Life in the Leafre Canyons. It leads up to the fight with one of the most powerful boss monsters in the game, Horntail. To enter, one must be in a party of 1-6, and be over the level of 130. The leader also must have completed the Secret Medicine of Transformation Certificate of Squad Badge quest, which will give the certificate to enter the Horntail's cave.

However, once you completed the quest, you can simply enter the cave directly since the gatekeeper has fled, so you do not have to do the transformation quest anymore. This quest is repeatable unlimited times and only appears if you lost the Certificate of the Squad Badge.

Pre-requisites[edit]

  • Level 130 or higher for Easy mode
  • Level 135 or higher for Normal and Chaos mode.
  • Maximum 2 entries daily regardless of mode.
  • Party Leader requires in possession Certificate of the Squad Badge to enter.

It is recommended that all party members must be 160+ to withstand the Horntails damage. To start the bossfight, destroy the pink crystal on the far right of the map to summon Horntail. Players must stand clear away from the middle when this happens, otherwise they'd most likely end up dying.
