Dark manuscripts are ancient pages found in the Grand Library in Arceuus. Horphis may ask the player to find manuscripts for them, in which their location is random. Horphis will not talk to players until they have at least 20% Arceuus favour. Upon handing in a manuscript, 5% Arceuus favour is rewarded.

To get a hint to find the location of a manuscript, players can ask Biblia on the top floor of the library.

Players cannot read the manuscript as it is too complex for the player to decipher the symbols.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Players can gather multiple manuscripts at a time and hand them in bulk allowing for faster favour gain. This is done by returning to Biblia on the top floor after each manuscript is found, and asking for the location of any dark manuscripts again.

It seems that every time the locations of the manuscripts are reselected, 1-2 random locations are chosen for each room, and the manuscript will always appear in one or the other location.

It can be useful to note the locations for faster gathering.
