Royal City of Rabanastre

1. Old Man Dalan

  • After getting the stone, head back to Old Man Dalan.
  • Hand the Sun Stone over to Dalan in order to get the Crescent Stone.
  • Once you get the Crescent Stone, head to Storage #5 which is at the north end of the Lowtown area.
  • Take the west door as it leads you to the next area: Garamsythe Waterway.
  • Talk to Kaitos to grab a two Potions and four Eye Drops.
  • Once you enter, you cannot leave the dungeon. Make sure you’re well-prepared. If you don’t have Cure or Libra, get them now.

Garamsythe Waterway

1. Once inside, use the map.

  • The place is generally straightforward. Use the map if you still get lost.
  • Steal from the Bat-like enemies. They can drop Teleport Stones that are useful and sell for 100 Gil a piece.
  • Don’t let the rats gang up on you. They deal a lot of damage when they’re together.

2. After you reach the end, you’ll find yourself in the Royal Rabanastre Palace.

Royal Rabanastre Palace (Inside)

1. Speak to the servants

  • There will be some servants roving around. Speak to them before trying to head upstairs.
  • When you try to go upstairs, there’s a guard that will block your way.

2. Talk to the nearby servant

  • The nearby servant will trigger a mini-game of sorts. Your job is to call the guard over and slip past him.
  • After slipping past the first guard, you’ll have to do the same with two other guards. Move them to one side and sneak past.
    • If you get spotted, you’ll be sent back to the beginning. Be careful.
  • There are other guards, but they won’t bother you if you don’t approach them.

3. Find the Lion Seal

  • A cutscene will play once you find it.
  • There will be a light glowing from the wall. Examine it to open a secret passageway.
  • Head down the hallway until you reach a locked door. Since it’s locked, check the switch behind the wall.
  • The path behind the door will lead to your two new party members: Balthier and Fran. Vaan will also take some random treasure: the Goddess Magic Stone.
  • After that, run.
  • Run up the stairs for another event once the chaos subsides. There, you’ll run back to Gramsythe Waterway with Balthier and Fran.
