From Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn Wiki
Wheiskaet would first like to verify that you are not a complete fraud.
— In-game description
- Lie in wait for the nix.
- Before he bothers giving you a truly demanding task, Wheiskaet would first have you attend to a simple one. Place the herring he has given you on an eastern cape near Costa del Sol to lure out the nix that has been seen in the vicinity.
- Having baited the trap with your herring, all that remains is to wait for and slay the nix that comes forth to claim it.
- You dispatch the slimy creature with great fanfare and sever one of its legs as proof of your kill. Show Wheiskaet that the deed is done.
- Wheiskaet explains that a recent incident with a former employee has forced him to treat strangers with greater caution. Having proven yourself to be nothing like that other poor, unfortunate soul, he is now willing to give you a challenge as befits your talents.
