Chapter 5, the Machine Faction at Djose Temple reveal the secret project theyve
been working on, the Experiment. This mechanical monstrosity has been constructed
from the parts youve been digging up at the excavation site at Bikanel Island.
Defeat the Experiment once and youll be able to explore the upper floors
of the temple at your leisure. If you defeated the Experiment before getting all
of its levels up to 5, youll be enlisted to help repair it. It seems that
the Al Bhed arent able to repair such a large contraption on their own,
but with the proper reference materials theyll be able to get it up and
running again. There are five repair manuals that you can obtain to help the Al
Bhed with their repairs. Here are their locations:
1st manual Visit the upper floor of Djose Temple. An Al Bhed man will
ask you for a password. That password is MARNELA, named after the matriarch
of the Cactuars at Bikanel Desert. Once the password is given, hell give
you the manual.
2nd manual Obtained from a man sitting in the room to the left of the
stairs in Djose Temple.
3rd manual Walk to the right of the temple entrance and youll find
three monkeys in a circle. Stand between the monkeys and wait for all three
of them to jump at the same time. Press the X button and youll receive
4th manual Examine the Machina to the left of the crowd of people at
the northern part of Miihen Highroad.
5th manual Found in a treasure chest at the Ruin Depths beneath the Chocobo
Stables in the Calm Lands.
You can fight and repair the Experiment repeatedly until you get all of its
levels up to 5. Once that happens, the Machine Faction will lose control of
it and it will be up to you to take it out for good. For defeating it youll
receive Magical Dances, Vol. II, which will enable Songstresses to learn the
Magical Masque ability.
