Journal

  • A chill wind blows in Eorzea, and Urianger's eyes bespeak knowledge of the reason why.
  • Urianger grimly confirms that which a part of you already suspected: Lady Iceheart has recovered from her wounds and resumed her campaign against Ishgard. A letter from Lord Drillemont makes mention of a recent theft of crystals, which would suggest that the heretic leader intends to summon Saint Shiva once again. Return to Whitebrim Front and speak with Lord Drillemont to ascertain the situation.
  • Lord Drillemont reveals that he had intended to establish an Ishgardian outpost at Snowcloak. Alas, Lady Iceheart and her forces fell upon his men in a surprise attack, retaking the fortress along with the knights' sundry supplies. He implores you to confront the heretic leader and, if necessary, put down the dread primal Shiva once again. A Temple Knight posted at Snowcloak can escort you through hidden tunnels to the aetheryte within the heretics' lair which you can use to reach Lady Iceheart's sanctuary.
  • The Temple Knight stands ready to guide you through the tunnels. Assemble your companions and do what you must for the good of the realm. ※The Akh Afah Amphitheatre (Extreme) can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • At the end of a titanic struggle, you succeed in defeating Saint Shiva, but cannot prevent Lady Iceheart from making her escape once again. Be that as it may, Lord Drillemont will doubtless be relieved to hear of your victory.
  • The troubling events of recent days have given Lord Drillemont much to consider; in particular, whether or not Ishgard has the capability to address the heretic threat on its own. Putting aside such concerns, he thanks you for your timely intervention, and bids you convey his gratitude to Urianger and the other Scions.
  • Long accustomed to the sight of your triumphant swagger, Urianger discerns that Saint Shiva is no more before you have even opened your mouth. Your subsequent description of the events at Snowcloak gives him pause, however, and he concludes that the Ascians yet labor to incite the heretics and Lady Iceheart to continue their crusade. Undaunted, the Archon declares his belief that Eorzea will one day be rid of the Ascian menace, and that you are the key to the realm's salvation.

Objectives

  • Speak with Drillemont at Whitebrim Front.
  • Speak with the stalwart Temple Knight at Snowcloak.
  • Use the Duty Finder to confront Shiva in the Akh Afah Amphitheatre (Extreme).
  • Report to Drillemont.
  • Report to Urianger.

Journal

  • Lieutenant Scarlet would share with you most urgent tidings.
  • The elder primal Odin has reared his head again. This time, however, Brother O-App-Pesi has devised a strategy to put an end to the Dark Divinity's hunt through the Shroud. He has personally asked for your aid, and has called for you to attend him in Urth's Fount.
  • O-App-Pesi wastes no words─you are to head a company of adventurers against the Dark Divinity. The brother and E-Sumi-Yan will behold your battle with Odin from afar in hopes of learning why the primal is never long gone from the Shroud. When you are ready, proceed to Urth's Fount and challenge Odin. ※Urth's Fount can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • The Dark Divinity rides no more. Speak with O-App-Pesi and learn what he has observed.
  • The two brothers present a fascinating theory: Odin is not the being who wields the Zantetsuken, but rather a manifestation of the blade itself. Before they are able to study the sword further, however, a sworn man of the Gods' Quiver steals the Zantetsuken. O-App-Pesi vows you will get the chance to shatter the fell blade on the day the sword is again found.

Objectives

  • Speak with O-App-Pesi in Urth's Fount.
  • Use the Duty Finder to confront Odin in Urth's Fount.

  • You deliver the ritual focus to Urianger, and the scholarly Elezen surmises that Garuda's enhanced powers are likely the result of an altered rite of summoning.

  • In somewhat pained tones, Vorsaile Heuloix explains how Kuplo Kopp attempted to chastise the Mogglesguard for their previous folly in summoning the king. Unfortunately, Kuplo's words did not have the desired effect─fueled by fear and righteous indignation, the Mogglesguard proceeded to summon an even more potent incarnation of their maniacal monarch. Make haste to the Bramble Patch in the East Shroud, and rendezvous with your frantic moogle acquaintance.

  • R'ashaht Rhiki confirms that the Lord of the Whorl has indeed returned to terrorize the seas. Reports of the primal's most recent attack suggest that this incarnation of Leviathan is possessed of truly nightmarish power and represents a threat that must be neutralized with all possible haste.

  • Sergeant Styrnlona eagerly informs you that the twin vessel, the Whorleater, and its towing ship are ready to leave port as soon as you board. The time has come to sail forth and confront the Lord of the Whorl once more. ※The Whorleater (Extreme) can be accessed via the Duty Finder.

Make your way to Little Solace in the East Shroud, and announce your arrival to the elder sylph's attendant, Dellexia.
  • After welcoming you back to Little Solace, Frixio explains that the touched sylphs─fueled by fear and anger─have once more summoned their thunderous god. Though adamant that Ramuh holds no destructive agenda, the elder sylph admits that the primal's very presence is a danger to the land. The Lord of Levin must be defeated, not only to protect the realm, but also to teach his vengeful thralls the futility of their actions. Head deep into the territory of the touched sylphs and attune yourself to the Sylphlands aetheryte.

For what terrible purpose do the servants of Darkness seek to corrupt the essence of the primals... ?
