Trachtoum remains unconvinced of your readiness to defeat the dread primal Tidus.

— In-game description



  • Your conversation with Trachtoum is interrupted by an irate miller, who accuses the flustered marauder of shirking his duty. As you look on in stunned silence, Trachtoum claims to have slain the goobbue that you but recently dispatched. Unconvinced, the miller decides that the truth will be revealed “the Lominsan way.” Speak with the miller outside and discover what this entails.
  • While Wheiskaet acknowledges your passion, he is reluctant to send an adventurer of unknown character to his/her death. If you wish to learn how the Company of Heroes defeated Titan, you must yet again prove yourself by completing Wheiskaet's challenges.


Accepting the Quest (Cutscene)

Trachtoum: So, I was sayin', I still don't know if ye've got what it takes to face Tidus. Maybe if ye slew a─
Grey Fleet Miller: Trachtoum? You in here drinking again? If you are, that goobbue had better be dead!
Trachtoum: Oh, it's dead, chief, ye have me word on that! Cleaved the beast's skull in two with me trusty axe, I did!
Grey Fleet Miller: Is that a fact? And what will your friend here say if I ask her/him?
Trachtoum: Sh-She'll/H-He'll vouch for me, of course! Ain't that right...friend?
Grey Fleet Miller: Tell me true: was it Trachtoum who slew that goobbue...or was it you?
Trachtoum: Chief! Wh-What are ye sayin'!? It's me, Trachtoum, the finest axeman ever to serve in the Company of Heroes, the legendary mercenaries who slew that bastard Tidus!
Grey Fleet Miller: ...Tidus? Tidus? Who in the seven hells is Tidus!? Some primal you fought in a drink-sodden dream? The Company of Heroes slew Titan, you bloody half-wit!
Trachtoum: Ah. Aye, well...see, Tidus was what me an' the lads used to call him.
Grey Fleet Miller: That's the biggest load of Sahagin shite I've ever heard.
Both of you, outside! We'll learn the truth the Lominsan way!
Grey Fleet Miller: Trachtoum─if you didn't slay that goobbue, you may consider your contract revoked!

Solo Duty Dialogue

Trachtoum Parter of Seas: All right─ye know the rules! First one to smash their boulder will be judged the goobbue slayer!
Trachtoum Parter of Seas: An' don't even think about tryin' to kill me! That's cheatin'!
Grey Fleet Miller: Who picked these boulders!? They're nothing alike!
Ah, the hells with it─let the contest begin!
Trachtoum Parter of Seas: How ye doin', lass/matey? Feelin' a bit stiff, by any chance?
Trachtoum Parter of Seas: Heh heh...only killin's against the rules!
Trachtoum Parter of Seas: Y-Yer still at it!? Bugger me─'tis lucky I've got one of these!
Trachtoum Parter of Seas: Me arms, me bleedin' arms...

Post Solo Duty Cutscene

Trachtoum: >>All right, all right, I admit it! I lied about bein' in the Company of Heroes. But I'm beggin' ye, chief─please don't dismiss me! I've learned me lesson, honest I have!<<
Grey Fleet Miller: Save your blubbering, Trachtoum. <sigh> Gods, I should've known...
Trachtoum: >>Mercy, please! I didn't want to deceive ye, I swear! It's just that I kept gettin' turned away by all the folk I asked for work, an' I panicked!<<
Trachtoum: See, the last job I had was at Costa del Sol, an' there was this grizzled marauder everyone treated like royalty. When I heard he was a captain in the Company of Heroes, I finally understood why.
Trachtoum: I-I wasn't bein' serious when I said I was one of 'em! But ye went an' believed me, so I, er...
Trachtoum: >>L-Look─his name was Wheiskaet, all right!? Wheiskaet! He'll tell ye how to defeat Titus or whatever the hells that thing's name is!<<
Trachtoum: >>That's what ye wanted, ain't it!? So come on, then! Tell the chief to forgive me! It's only fair!<<

Speaking with Wheiskaet (Cutscene)

Wheiskaet: Pardon? You wish to slay the Lord of Crags?
Y'shtola: We must slay him, Captain. The people of Limsa Lominsa are depending upon us.
Wheiskaet: Hmph. You fancy yourselves heroes, then─just like in the tales?
Y'shtola: Be not so quick to judge. Long have I labored for the well-being of you and yours. And my associate here has bathed in Ifrit's hellfire and lived.
Y'shtola: She/he is blessed with a power that protects her/him from primal influence. Thus was she/he able to lay low the Lord of the Inferno.
Y'shtola: We know full well the risks, and have taken every possible precaution. We lack only the knowledge of how to enter Titan's lair. Pray be so good as to grant us the boon of your wisdom, and we shall be on our way.
Wheiskaet: A man/woman who can't be tempered? Useful...but it will not be enough.
Wheiskaet: It is true that the Company of Heroes fought and felled primals─but each victory was bought with the lifeblood of brave men and women.
Wheiskaet: And Titan was the worst we faced. Aye, we defeated him─in the end─but he took from us some of our very best.
Wheiskaet: Even if you possess the power you claim, I have no reason to believe you will succeed.
Y'shtola: Believe what you will. We mean to try.
Y'shtola: Though our lives be forfeit, we will not abandon Limsa to the wrath of Titan.
Wheiskaet: You are passionate, I'll grant you that...
Wheiskaet: ...And you deserved better than the greeting I gave you. But I will not send you into O'Ghomoro on a whim. To be plain, I do not wish to see you give your lives in vain.
Wheiskaet: At the very least, I must have assurances that you are more than common adventurers.
Wheiskaet: I oversee security for Master Gegeruju's estates. Perhaps you can demonstrate your abilities by attending to one of our─
Y'shtola: Ye gods, man─have you heard nothing I have said? We have not the time to perform trivial tasks. The enemy is at the gates!
Wheiskaet: Do you imagine words can sway me, girl?
Wheiskaet: If you dislike my conditions, then you are welcome to find your own way into O'Ghomoro.
Y'shtola: <sigh> Though it pains me to admit it, I fear we have no choice but to acquiesce to the man's demands.
Y'shtola: Yet much remains to be done if we are to best Titan. Forgive me, but I must ask you to undertake this task alone. I will use the time to see to the remaining preparations.
Wheiskaet: Leaving the dirty work to others, are we? Heh, very well.
Y'shtola: Pray do whatever the good captain bids...however trifling. Remember: the fate of Limsa Lominsa hangs in the balance.
