Exdeath sinking the island.

Bartz and his party go to Ghido's Cave to get Ghido to help them defeat Exdeath. However, Exdeath sinks the island where Ghido lives before the heroes have a chance to meet him. The player can reach it once they acquire the submarine from Xezat.

Entering the underwater cave, the party finally finds Ghido. To Bartz's surprise, the great sage is actually a turtle. The sage explains about Exdeath's origin and the party's next move: to head for the Great Forest of Moore, Exdeath's "birthplace".

Later, after Exdeath merges the two worlds, Ghido's Cave returns to above the water level, where the Warriors of Light find Ghido again. They are visited by Exdeath disguised as a splinter, who fights the elder turtle. The combat ends with a draw and Ghido and the Warriors are teleported to the Library of the Ancients.

Spoilers end here.
