I'm thinking the quest "Courcle's Heart", specifically "Light and Darkness" might be bugged. I cannot get the Special Life Drain crystals to work, no matter what I do. I am using the music box when I am supposed to. I've dropped the Elemental Crystals in just about every conceivable combination, and when I try to use Life Drain it just says "You don't have enough crystals". Anyone completed G10 recently and can tell me EXACTLY how you did so? I'd appreciate the help!

Life Drain was changed over to use a combination of normal crystals from chests/NPCs, and you should make sure to have missing HP (but not be wounded too much) when you use it.

It's me, I forgot my password yesterday. Well, Rydian I have tried to use Life Drain without dropping any of the Elemental Crystals (which are provided at the start of the battle) and Life Drain works, but it doesn't proceed with the quest. The wiki says "drop all of at least one type" and a GM told me to "drop all but one" crystal, and I've done all of these things, but it just says "you don't have enough crystals". I'm at a loss as to what to do.

I got past it with the help of a friend who became a RA. I just used the music box and normal Life Drain, and didn't drop any crystals. The wiki and the GM's need to be updated/edited.

I know you're done already but.. I know that you need at least rF life drain for it to work. Novice rank won't let you drain it. Ranking it up helps~

All of this needs to be updated in the wiki and the GM's need to be told that their advice is outdated too, because I talked with one during a live chat and was told to drop "all but one crystal" which does NOT work.

We don't handle the GMs here, you could go make a thread on the official forums for feedback.
Also was it getting rank F that worked?
How did life drain fail initially, specifically?

That's what worked for me; ranking drain from rNovice -> rF. I did g10 on a new character around 2 weeks ago and had issue. What is your Life Drain rank Aiwaz2, if you don't mind sharing?

It's rF. Using Life Drain at Novice rank didn't work. I mean, it used the correct amount of elemental crystals and the skill worked, but it did not proceed with the quest.

I know that this has been resolved now but part of the problem is also due to latency - if you have a small lag it can cause it to not register too which is another reason why high ranks (more than F) are useful since they finish casting a lot faster. (I had this and I play from Europe, even with ranking the skill to F and everything and it ended up being luck that I clicked fast enough to get it to progress)
It has been a problem for quite some time and it is not likely to be fixed since latency based issues usually do not get patched, but maybe this info can help someone else in the future.

I'd like to mention that i just did that quest, and you also need "Earth Alchemy Mastery" to be at least f. If you have it on novice, you can not finish the quest.
