When the Dragonsong War began, Vedrfolnir fought with his brothers alongside the knights of Ishgard against the Nidhogg horde. Not to fight with his consort, Vedrfolnir asks Faunehm to flee to the east.
When the Warrior of Light, Alphinaud and Ser Aymeric Hraesvelgr for help to defending Ishgard, Hraesvelgr conducts an trial against the Warrior of Light while Vidofnir trials Alphinaud and Vedrfolnir trials Aymeric. Once the trials are completed, Vedrfolnir takes Aymeric to the battlefield.
With the end of the Dragonsong War, Vedrfolnir's son, Orn Khai decides to fulfill his father's desire to reunite with his consort. With the help of the Warrior of Light, Orn Khai meets Faunehm in Azim Steppe. Due to having resisted Nidhogg's call for so long, she loses her sanity and while she attacks the Warrior of Light and Estinien, Vedrfolnir arrives and succeeds in making his consort regain his sanity.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
To spawn the World Fate, the player must first complete the End of the Rainbow, Mogicide, and Rastaban Vibration FATEs. With the exception of Mogicide, in the other two FATEs Vedrfolnir will appear to face one of Darkscale's servants, both Vedrfolnir and his opponent cannot be targeted by the player but they can use AoE that hits the minions or the player depending on who cast it.
Once completed without fail, Darkscale's Chain FATEs appear in Ohl Tahn. Vedrfolnir will face Darkscale and his servants directly but this time both can be targeted by the player. Vedrfolnir's HP drops fast during battle so it is recommended to have a White Mage on party to cast Benediction on him.
Upon completion of Chain FATE, Vedrfolnir Devoteth FATE will immediately spawn at Greensward. When you complete the FATE reward with A Worthy Adversary achievement and if the player gets gold he will receive Ishgardian Half Barding.
