As the battered Federation forces prepare to defend their city from the approaching hordes, the inscrutable Robel-Akbel schemes in his dark chambers. What terrible secrets lie behind his mask? Deliver the magicite he seeks, and long-sought truths just may be revealed...
Then, you must travel to the three present-day beastman strongholds to obtain shards of magicite. The shards and their locations are:
When finished, return to Windurst Waters (S) and talk to Velda-Galda for a cutscene. Then, zone out to West Sarutabaruta (S) for another cutscene. Finally, check the Windurstian Bulwark at J-8 in West Sarutabaruta (S) (right outside of town) for one more cutscene.
Checking the Windurstian Bulwark one more time will start a battle with several waves of monsters. Three protective wards spawn in front of the entrance to town, and your goal is to protect the bulwarks from the oncoming monsters. If the Protective Wards are destroyed, the fight ends and you must start over. Zone and check the Windurstian Bulwark again to restart the fight.
When you've successfully won the battle, check the Windurstian Bulwark again for a big cutscene. Then zone into Windurst Waters (S) to finish the mission.
Up to an alliance of adventurers can participate in this battle. Anyone can help with this fight regardless of their mission or quest progress. Buffs will not wear when the fight begins, and campaign tags and temporary items can be used in this battle as well. Romaa Mihgo assists your party/alliance during the fight.
The monsters attack in four different waves, and each wave will head straight for the protective wards. The monsters must be grabbed and kited until they can be killed. They are immune to most enfeebling spells.
The monsters appear in the following order, with each wave arriving about one minute apart:
If you have at least two kiters for this battle, you'll have an easier time grabbing mobs before they can damage the Protective Wards. When fighting mobs, try to pull them away from the wards so the wards aren't damaged by AoE attacks.
