In "Final Fantasy XII" the Necrohol of Nabudis is one of the greatest challenges in the game for many players. Upon approaching this foreboding dungeon, players are warned about its dangers and informed that only the strong should dare to enter. Unprepared players are prevented from journeying too far into the Necrohol, since three medallions are needed to unlock three of the main doors. To get these medallions, you need to complete several quests that require you to collect stone fragments.
Starting the Quest and the First Three Fragments
Travel to Rabanastre, the game's main city. Go to the Lowtown area and speak to Old Dalan. This allows you to begin the medallion fragment hunt.
Find a mark hunting board in any tavern and take the "Waterway Haunting" mark. Follow the marker on your map to reach the quest area. Pick up the Dusty Letter. Complete the mark.
Take the "Lost in the Pudding" mark from a mark billboard. Complete the mark to obtain the Sluice Gate Key.
Go to the Garamsythe Waterway. Use the Sluice Gate Key to open the gates. Close the 11th gate and then the fourth gate. Open the 11th gate again, and then shut the third gate. Open the fourth gate. Go to the now-open third gate and pick up the Dull Fragment from the floor.
Go to a mark bulletin board. Take the "Crime and Punishment" mark and complete it to win the Blackened Fragment.
Head to the Nabreus Deadlands and enter the Muted Scrap. Speak with Ma'kleou. After talking to him, go back to Rabanastre and talk with Old Dalan.
Go to the Southern Lowtown area of Rabanastre. Talk to Filo to get a hint about the next fragment. Walk toward the fountain and talk to the woman there. She asks you to get her a necklace.
Enter the nearby Yugri's Magics shop. Speak with the soldier, who asks you to bring the woman to him. Return to the fountain to see that the woman has left.
Go back to Lowtown and talk to Kytes, who is walking around in the sewers. Speak with Filo next, and then return to the shop and talk to the soldier. You get the Grimy Fragment as a reward.
The Final Fragment and Putting Medallions Together
Go back to Lowtown and talk to Roh'kenmou, who is standing by Old Dalan. Give him the three fragments. Travel to the city of Archades and enter the Charolette's Magickery shop. Roh'kenmou meets you here and tells you to speak with a man named Otto.
Walk to Old Archades and head to the Alley of Muted Sights. Speak to Otto to get the Moonsilver Fragment.
Travel to the Nabreus Deadlands and speak with Ma'kleou in the Muted Scrap area. Leave the area and walk to the Slumbermead.
Go to the Northwest corner of the Slumbermead and walk on the hidden path. You are taken to Fog Mutters. Enter the next path to reach Overlooking Eternity.
Climb to the top of the shrine and speak to Ma'kleou. He gives you the Medallion of Might, the Medallion of Bravery and the Medallion of Love.
In the Necrohol of Nabudis, use the Medallion of Might to open the Door of Despair, the Medallion of Bravery to open the Door of Horrors and the Medallion of Love to open the Door of Loathing.
The Necrohol of Nabudis is home to the Zodiac Spear, one of the most powerful weapons in the game.
