  • Torsefers has a message for you from a mysterious stranger.
  • Torsefers informs you that a mysterious stranger came calling during your absence. If you would oblige his request to meet, make your way to the Rising Stones and seek him out in the solar.
  • Arriving in the solar of the Rising Stones, you are greeted by a masked boy, who introduces himself as Unukalhai. He proceeds to alert you to the rising threat of beings known as eikons, which he clarifies are not the primals you know so well. Rather, the term “eikon” and the beings to which it refers date back to the days of the Allagan Empire. At this juncture, Urianger makes an unannounced appearance and takes over the explanation. It appears that the Warring Triad, three eikons sealed within the Aetherochemical Research Facility on Azys Lla, are threatening to break free. To compound matters, the primals you had but recently defeated have also been resummoned. While Urianger considers measures, you must attend to the task of vanquishing the primals, lest they seek to seize the power of the slumbering eikons and hasten their awakening. Unukalhai will assist you in this endeavor, though his allegiance and motive yet remain a mystery.

Objectives

  • Wait in the solar of the Rising Stones.

  • Unukalhai would have you face the Lord of the Mists once more.
  • To prevent the awakening of the Warring Triad, Bismarck must be cast down once more, and Unukalhai declares that you shall slay him using the same method as before. The boy then furnishes you with a large gemstone and bids you show it to Chief Sonu of the Zundu, in case he is feeling reluctant to give you all that you require.
  • Chief Sonu believes the gemstone in your possession is a relic of great power. If smashed against a Vundu aetheryte nestled in the Whale's Crown, it will render Bismarck vulnerable... Yet, upon further reflection, you recall no mention of the white whale's newfound invulnerability prior to this. That said, if the primal does have some form of protection, it will need to be circumvented before he can be defeated. Inform Cid of your new task.
  • Cid seems poised to explain in detail how Chief Sonu's request makes no sense whatsoever. However, he instead hazards that it might bring you good luck.
  • With all your might, you smash the gemstone against the aetheryte...

    and nothing much happens. Out of habit, you attune with the aetheryte...

    and again, nothing much happens. If your actions had any meaning, it remains to be seen. In any case, Cid is waiting. ※The Limitless Blue (Extreme) can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • The floating isles and their inhabitants need no longer fear a grisly end in the White's belly, as the ravenous flying whale has once more been returned to the aether. Chief Sonu should be glad to hear of your latest triumph.
  • Chief Sonu reveals that in returning to Ok' Zundu with the Weeping Eye of the Manukmanai, you were fulfilling an ancient prophecy. Legend has it that a Vanu elder once cast the eyes into the Sea of Clouds, proclaiming that they would return to the Vanu in the possession of a hero, who would then deliver them from destruction. And so, your battle with the White shall be preserved and passed down from generation to generation, doubtless growing greater with each telling...
  • Your victory was written in the aether, and Unukalhai read it long before you returned. Yet you know all too well not to rejoice overmuch in the accomplishment, for such threats are wont to return again and again.

Objectives

  • Present the Weeping Eye of the Manukmanai to Sonu Vanu in the Sea of Clouds.
  • Speak with Cid.
  • Attune to the aetheryte at the Whale's Crown.
  • Use the Duty Finder to confront Bismarck in the Limitless Blue (Extreme).
  • Speak with Sonu Vanu.
  • Speak with Unukalhai in the Rising Stones.

  • Unukalhai would have you face the Lord of the Hive once more.
  • Unukalhai bids you return to Thok ast Thok, where the resurgent Lord of the Hive builds his strength in eager anticipation. Doubtful that the act of surrendering will fool the Gnath a second time, the boy presents you with a gemstone, the Burning Eye of Ravana, and sends you to speak with the elder of the Nonmind. Travel to Loth ast Vath, and consult with the Vath storyteller about a new path into Ravana's domain.
  • You speak with the Vath elder, and he tells you of an aetheryte found inside a sacred cave on the far side of the colony. He warns you, however, that the wards placed upon the crystalline structure will admit only the most worthy of warriors... whatever that might mean. Make your way to the Gynehive in Loth ast Gnath, and attune to the Gnathic aetheryte.
  • You smash the gemstone against the aetheryte... and nothing much happens. You then proceed to attune to the aetheryte without difficulty, the invisible wards seemingly satisfied by the sacrifice of Unukalhai's bauble. Prove yourself now a worthy challenger, and vanquish the unbridled Wrath of the Colony! ※Thok ast Thok (Extreme) can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • Once more have you faced the savage prowess of the Master of the Sacred Blades, and once more have you prevailed. Return to the hive of the Nonmind and report Ravana's defeat to the Vath storyteller.
  • You bring the storyteller tidings of your victory, and the elder is curious to learn how you broke through the aetheryte's powerful wards. Upon hearing your description of the gemstone, he seems overcome by memories of ancient tales─of knowledge he once shared as a subject of the Overmind. The excited Vath claims that the Burning Eye of Ravana was a relic of legend, long sought by the Gnath that it might be returned to their reborn deity. Your great worth, he insists, was proven when you remained unharmed by the eye's searing touch. Though confused by your mention of Unukalhai, the elder nevertheless celebrates your triumph, and vows that the Nonmind shall tell the story of your deeds for generations to come.
  • Unukalhai welcomes your return. It seems that the strange visitor is already well aware of the Lord of the Hive's downfall, and he gravely acknowledges the completion of your perilous deed.

Objectives

  • Speak with the Vath storyteller at Loth ast Vath.
  • Attune to the aetheryte in the Gynehive.
  • Use the Duty Finder to confront Ravana in Thok ast Thok (Extreme).
  • Return to the Vath storyteller.
  • Speak with Unukalhai in the Rising Stones.

Journal

  • Unukalhai is anxious to act before the Warring Triad awaken.
  • Unukalhai warns that the Warring Triad are stirring, and insists that the time to move against them has come. Being the closest to awakening, the eikon known as Sephirot is to be your first target. Join Unukalhai on the Flagship, Azys Lla's main isle, and await the arrival of your fellow Scions.
  • You rendezvous with Unukalhai, and are joined by Y'shtola, Urianger, and Krile─the latter being the “talented individual” to whom Unukalhai alluded earlier. Having spared no effort in her preparations, the surviving Student of Baldesion swiftly discerns the only feasible way to proceed, and assigns herself the task of disabling Sephirot's shackles. Summon your Echo-blessed companions, and make ready to engage the wrathful god as he awakens from millennia of dream-bound servitude. ※Containment Bay S1T7 can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • You have felled the towering Sephirot. Make your way back to the Flagship.
  • You return to the Flagship, and share a brief moment of celebration with your companions. For the present, at least, your mission on Azys Lla is complete. Head back to the Rising Stones and speak with Unukalhai.
  • Back at the Rising Stones, Urianger compliments you on your victory, but advises you to marshal your strength before contemplating confronting the Warring Triad's two remaining eikons. Given the Garleans' appetite for Allagan technology, however, Unukalhai warns that you may not have the luxury of time. Tiring of the masked youth's portentous utterances, Krile then challenges Unukalhai to reveal his master's identity, but finds the boy wholly unwilling to eschew his veil of secrecy. Though you say nothing, you cannot help but share her misgivings regarding his true motivations...

Objectives

  • Unukalhai has a gift for you.
  • Unukalhai gifts you an Allagan tomestone that supposedly contains a detailed record of the furious conflict between Sephirot and the forces of Allag. He proceeds to explain that the wondrous technology of the ancient empire will be able to use that information to manifest an artificial incarnation of the powerful eikon, allowing you to experience battle against the mighty Sephirot once more. Take the tomestone to the Flagship of Azys Lla, and present the recording device to the verification node.
  • You have presented the tomestone to the verification node, and initiated what the orb describes as a “combat simulation.” Assemble a band of trusty companions, and test your mettle against the unfettered might of Sephirot. ※Containment Bay S1T7 (Extreme) can be accessed via the Duty Finder.

Journal

  • Unukalhai is preoccupied by the threat of the VIth Legion.
  • Even as Unukalhai shares his concerns over the presence of the VIth Legion in Azys Lla, he receives word from Y'shtola that imperial forces have dispelled the ward barring ingress to the Aetherochemical Research Facility. Make haste to the Flagship, and rendezvous with Unukalhai at the facility entrance.
  • Outside the facility, you are joined by Krile and your fellow Scions. Urianger expresses puzzlement at the apparent ease with which the imperial forces dispelled his ward, but Unukalhai is in no mood to explore this mystery, urging you to seize the opportunity to eliminate the intruders. Krile duly uses a nearby terminal to open a direct path to the core laboratories, where the secrets of Allag are stored...
  • You enter the Aetherochemical Research Facility, ready to do battle with the VIth Legion. But time is short. Cut a path through the imperial rank and file, and defeat the legatus before he can escape with the Genesis Expression.
  • You carve through the forces of the VIth legion in your pursuit of Regula van Hydrus, and succeed in halting the legatus mere steps from the tomelith containing his prize. Cursing your obstinate meddling, he reluctantly retreats, though you cannot help but agree with Urianger's appraisal that he will be back. Be that as it may, there is naught to be done now save to follow Unukalhai out of the facility while Krile and the Archons turn their attention to constructing a more potent ward to safeguard the perilous knowledge of Allag.
  • Safely outside the facility once more, you are unexpectedly joined by Urianger, who accuses Unukalhai of sabotaging his ward. Unable to refute the Archon's reasoning, the boy finally admits to setting a trap for the VIth Legion. Return to the Rising Stones and trouble Unukalhai for an explanation.
  • In an effort to excuse his uncharacteristically rash behavior, Unukalhai tells you of a star which met its end through the abuse of primal energies. This, he claims, is why it is imperative that those who would use primal-harnessing technologies are stopped by any means necessary. Continue to assist Unukalhai with his plans to eliminate the threat of the Warring Triad, and spare Hydaelyn a similarly tragic end.

  • Unukalhai has urgent news to share on the current state of the Warring Triad.
  • According to Unukalhai, aetheric readings taken by Y'shtola in the aftermath of the VIth Legion's recent intrusion indicate that the eikon Sophia is close to awakening. Make haste to Azys Lla and rendezvous with the masked youth on the Flagship, in readiness to put the ancient goddess down.
  • Barely have you joined Unukalhai when the ground begins to rumble to the sound of nearby battle. In the next moment, a breathless Krile appears and announces that Y'shtola and Urianger have engaged an unknown band of assailants. You hurry to the scene of the conflict to find a trio of strangers whom you determine to be thralls of the eikon Sophia. Though they do not linger long, they leave you with the words of an ominous prophecy, and the fear that their mistress may have already awoken in possession of all her terrible might. Time is of the essence. Summon your faithful comrades to your side and cast down the dread Goddess lest all be judged upon her scales! ※Containment Bay P1T6 can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • You have banished Sophia into the aether. Make your way back to the Flagship.
  • Following your victory over the Goddess, Y'shtola muses on the reason for her rapid awakening─a question to which Unukalhai and Krile soon provide an answer. According to their investigation, the eikon enslaved the will of a careless Garlean soldier and commanded him to release her thralls. Allagan records also speak of a failed plot to exploit a flaw introduced into the machinery of Sophia's prison─a scheme that came dangerously close to being enacted millennia later. Even as you make your way back to the Rising Stones and Unukalhai, you are haunted by the thought of what might have come to pass had the Goddess been suffered to escape her fetters.
  • You rejoin Unukalhai in Revenant's Toll, where you witness Y'shtola berating the masked youth for seeming to place you on a pedestal. Their differing views on what can and cannot be expected of you apart, all seem to agree that the last pillar of the Warring Triad must fall, and that only with its destruction will the world finally be free of the existential threat posed by Azys Lla.

Objectives

  • Rendezvous with Unukalhai at the Flagship.

  • Unukalhai has a gift for you.
  • Unukalhai gifts you an Allagan tomestone that contains a detailed record of the eikon Sophia at the height of her power. He proceeds to explain that this data will enable Azys Lla's miraculous reality augmentation technologies to generate an idealized simulacrum of the Goddess against whom to test your skills─just as the champions of Allag once did. Take the tomestone to the Flagship, and present the recording device to the verification node.
  • Upon receiving the tomestone, the verification node initiates what it refers to as an “enlistment program,” presumably intended to assess candidates' worthiness to join the Allagan warrior elite. Assemble a band of trusty companions, and meet the Goddess in all her terrible glory! ※Containment Bay P1T6 (Extreme) can be accessed via the Duty Finder.

  • Unukalhai has a request regarding the final eikon of the Warring Triad.
  • Unukalhai informs you that the Scions have begun a search inside Azys Lla's research facility. They seek to locate the thralls responsible for maintaining the manifestation of the last remaining eikon of the Warring Triad, but certain sectors are too dangerous to enter for those not blessed with the Echo. Make your way to the Flagship, and wait for your comrades to arrive at the agreed rendezvous point.
  • After arriving on Azys Lla with Unukalhai, your fellow Scions soon join you with the disturbing news that an imperial force once more occupies the facility. As Urianger ponders the inefficacy of his wards, Regula van Hydrus approaches your party and explains the reason for the magick's failure: a pulse of power from the soon-to-awaken Zurvan. The legatus quickly describes the dire situation, and urges you to join him and his troops in preventing the Demon's thralls from rousing their master. Hurry after Unukalhai, and delve into Central Azys Lla.
  • You speak with Unukalhai, and he urges you to not fall behind the rest of your companions. The ritual must be stopped. ※The verification node can be used to re-enter Central Azys Lla.
  • You destroy the devices feeding aether to the stirring Zurvan, and return the eikon to a fitful slumber. But the temporary victory is not without a cost: in an unexpected act of heroism, Regula is struck down as he defends an overmatched Unukalhai. With his dying breath, the legatus bids you complete his duty, and slay the Demon and his followers. You withdraw with your companions, and the masked youth stands somewhat apart, shaken and disbelieving... ※The verification node can be used to re-enter Central Azys Lla.
  • Regula's sacrifice has afforded you the chance to strike at a weakened Zurvan. With their tasks assigned, your companions depart to secure the controls to the eikon's shackles. It falls to you and your handpicked company of warriors to bring oblivion to the Demon himself. ※Containment Bay Z1T9 can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • You have felled the monstrous Zurvan. Make your way back to the Flagship.
  • With the fall of Zurvan, the cataclysmic threat of the Warring Triad has at last been expunged. Even as your fellow Scions praise Regula's final heroic act, however, Unukalhai once more agonizes over his own inadequate strength. Return to the Rising Stones, and listen to the masked youth's story.
  • Unukalhai removes his mask, and proceeds to reveal not only his features, but also the truth behind his origins. He speaks of his birth on a different star, and of how that world became what is now known as the void. Though born with the power of the Echo, Unukalhai describes how he was yet too young to contend with the forces that brought such ruination, and of how a sudden shift in the balance between Light and Dark can consign an entire world to oblivion. His spirit snatched into the safety of the rift by his present master, Unukalhai explains that he came to Hydaelyn determined to prevent the realm from suffering a similar fate. And now that he walks alongside the Scions and the Warrior of Light, he may just yet become the hero he was destined to be.

  • Unukalhai has something of interest for you.
  • Unukalhai presents you with an Allagan tomestone that contains detailed information on generating an enhanced simulacrum of the eikon Zurvan.

Take the tomestone to the Flagship, and present the recording device to the verification node.
