Glaumunt has come up with a plan to steal an Imperial magitek armor.
This quest is available if you have completed the quest Dressed for Conquest.
Starting the Quest
Talk to Glaumunt in Revenant's Toll in Mor Dhona to begin the quest.
Greet the Imperial Centurion
If you lose your Mended Imperial Pot Helm or Mended Imperial Short Robe, you can buy them from a Calamity Salvager in Gridania (near the Mih Khetto's Amphitheatre Aethernet Shard), the Calamity Salvager in Ul'dah (east of the Miners' Guild), or the Calamity Salvager in Limsa Lominsa (south of the Aftcastle Aethernet Shard). In the Calamity Salvager's menu, go to Purchase Quest Rewards > Purchase Quest Rewards to purchase a Mended Imperial Pot Helm and Mended Imperial Short Robe as needed.
Back in Mor Dhona, equip your Mended Imperial Pot Helm and Mended Imperial Short Robe,
then go to the location that the orange arrow in the minimap
is pointing to. Target the Imperial Centurion (he has a quest icon over his
/imperialsalute motion (the second one will not display a chat message)
Use the Imperial Smoke Signal
Go east to where the orange arrow is pointing in the minimap. Go around to the east side of the crystal formation, and go southwest up the slope to find your Destination. There will be a glow around it, indicating an instanced battle. Change back into your regular gear now. You will not be able to during the instanced battle. Don't get rid of the Imperial gear yet; you will need it again. Dismount and target it, and then you can either examine or target it and use the Imperial Smoke Signal on it from the Key Items section of your inventory, or you can target it and use the icon to the right of the quest name in your list of active quests. There will be a cutscene, and then the battle will ensue.
