This quest is available if you have completed the quest An Engineering Enterprise.

Starting the Quest

Talk to Tataru in the Forgotten Knight in Ishgard to begin the quest.

Speak with Pipin

Go to Ul'dah and use an Aethernet Shard to go to the Ul'dah Aetheryte Plaza if you are not already there. Go southeast up the stairs, then go east to the quest icon on the map and talk to Pipin.

Speak with Alphinaud

Go to Gridania and use the Aetheryte or an Aethernet Shard to go to the Conjurers' Guild Aethernet Shard. Talk to Alphinaud to complete the quest.
