Guide: Book of Skywind I Completion

1. Enemies 
You have to kill 10 enemies of each kind listed below (that makes a total of 100 foes).

5th Cohort Eques
Location: Mor Dhona - The Fogfens
Two of them are standing outside, two inside, so they are relatively fast to farm!

Location:  Mor Dhona - North Silvertear
They spawn on the following locations (see picture). If there is no Hippogryph, then they might have been killed recently. Better just to camp on one side to not miss their respawn.

Natalan Windtalon
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands - Natalan
Those are not so hard to find. There are 2 outside and a couple of them inside their "fortress". Don't forget to check out the Aetheryte, there is one more!

Sylpheed Snarl
Location: East Shroud - The Sylphlands
The best location I found was around Moonspore Grove, there are tonns of them to get the 10 kills very fast!

Location: Northern Thanalan - Bluefog
Teleport to Ceruleum Processing Plant and make your way to the location marked. Even without the Ahriman FATE active, there are tonns of them, so it will get done fast.

Amalj'aa Thaumaturge
Location: Southern Thanalan - Zanr'ak
The fastest way to reach the location is to teleport to Little Ala Mhigo. You can just circle around this location, there are tonns of them.

Trenchtooth Sahagin
Location: Western La Noscea - Halfstone
Teleport to Aleport. On this map are 2 kinds of mobs to kill, the Trenchtooth Sahagin and the Sapsa Elbst. Start with the Trenchtooth though, because they are on the way. Sadly there are just 3 of them, so you'll need to grab a coke and wait for their respawn. 

Sapsa Elbst 
Location: Western La Noscea - The Sapsa Spawning Grounds
After killing the Trenchtooth Sahagin (see above), head to the location shown on the picture below. The Sapsa Elbst aren't hard to find and there are plenty of them as well. Plus, they seem to respawn quite fast!

2nd Cohort Secutor
Location: Eastern La Noscea - The Agelyss Wise
Teleport to Wineport and head to the location shown below! I only found 3 of them - one waiting outside, one in the first room and one in the second room. Quite annoying to kill them and wait for their respawn, but can't be helped!

Elite Roundsman
Location: Outer La Noscea - U'Ghamaro Mines
Those are really annoying to find. Make sure you kill the Elite Roundsman, and not the normal U'Ghamaro Roundsman. I just found 2 locations, so I ended up running from spot 1 to 2... I'm sure there are more of them, but I was too lazy to run around in this labyrinth!

2. Dungeons 
You have to complete the following 3 dungeons in order to complete this category:
  • Sastasha
  • The Aurum Vale
  • Halatali (Hard)
You'll need to equip your Atma weapon while killing the last boss!

3. FATEs 
Your next task is to complete 3 special FATEs. I recommend to camp at the shown location or at least close to it, because you will have to get a gold medal in order to get it done - and this can be rather difficult if you have to run to the spot first.

Location: Upper La Noscea
Teleport to Camp Bronze Lake and head to the north. This FATE is very annoying and you will need to camp directly at the shown location (or at least be sure that you are VERY close to it), because once it spawns you will need to rescue the two NPC very quickly. If one dies the FATE fails and then you have to wait again. The FATE spawns once you see two NPCs with two Chocobos walking up the path. They will get ambushed soon, so stay close!

In Spite of It All
Location: Central Shroud
The location for this FATE is a bit tricky to find, so I hope the screenshot below helps.
The FATE spawns at the end of the tunnel. You will have to kill a boss here together with two adds that respawn after a while. I had no problem soloing it as Bard, but I think Melee classes might have problems to get him down without any help. Better take a friend with you!

Good to Be Bud
Location: Mor Dhona
This FATE is a bit like easter egg hunting. Budding Morbols will spawn and spread everywhere and you need to kill them.

4. Leves
Now there is only one category left: Levequests! You have to do 3 special Leves, so be sure to have enough allowances ready. In case you don't find the right Levequest at the NPC, you will have to initiate other Leves before and hope that they will spawn after. Or else: Try to come back another time (which actually worked better for me).

Subduing the Subprime
Location: Northern Thanalan - Camp Bluefog
Talk to Rurubana <Levemete>, who is located in Camp Bluefog, and choose Battlecraft Leves. From there, simply initiate this Leve. You will just have to kill a couple of mobs around.

Big, Bad Idea
Location: Mor Dhona - Saint Coinach’s Find
Talk to K'leytai <Levemete> in Mor Dhona to get this Leve. You need to kill Ragged Hippogryphs in order to obtain Hippogryph Shanks. With the meat you can lure out the mobs you need to kill.

Someone's Got a Big Mouth
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands - Whitebrim Front
Talk to Lodille <Serpent Sergeant> in Whitebrim Front and select Maelstrom Leves. You need to kill a monster called Mimas. It will summon adds during the battle, but you can simply ignore them and just burst Mimas.

Congratulations, the Book of Skywind I is now complete!
