The Celstial Nexus is Where you fight the Arch Duke and his kid brother in seperate fights. The fight with the duke can be reached from the very top of Delkfutt Tower, and the fight with his brother is reached through sky. If you don't have these missions flagged... well.. there is nothing to see there.

ZM18 "Apocalypse Nigh" is a battle with the Duke and his kid brother at the same time.. it does exist and is fought in the same zone where you fight Promathia.. The Empearyl Paradox *spelling*
"The answer is never the answer, What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer, They think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater then the need for an answer." ~Keyz

Currently looking for an assualt/ISNM static.

This is where the ZM16 (this mission is even called: The Celestial Nexus) fight takes place. There is no ZM18, by the way, and ZM17 is just cutscenes.

In order to reach this area, you must enter the Shrine of Ru'Avitau from Genbu's island, then head west as if you were heading to Byakko.

Pass through the yellow doors, and once you reach the room with both the yellow and blue monoliths, head south.

Follow that path all the way around the circle to the south side, where there's a path that heads north. Take that path to a large spiral staircase, and follow that all the way down to the basement. Follow that path along into the Celestial Nexus.

Actually this isn't completely correct . The CSs when you enter Celestial Nexus at start of the final boss fight is ZM16 . ZM17 is the boss fight and final CS for the Zilart missions.

I really wanna see the Celestial Nexus, but I am told too many different nways of how you get here.

Can someone please tell me how to get here and what I need to do to get here , or post a link that will tell me please?
Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

#CheeseMcMuff, Posted: Sep 11 2005 at 9:25 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) this is very true and quite a problem for novice final fantasy players. the trick is to trick the lima bean thinking its cybill sheppard. it will attack with great force, but you will resist it with might and determination. i hope u follow me in this quest to rule civilization.
ZM18...I think

Im pretty sure this is the Zilart Mission 18 site
"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."

If you go to the northeast island, to the entrance where Faust is, down the stairs, this is the correct way. Enter, but instead of going up the stairs right away, turn right instead. Work your way to the middle of the map and down a spiral staircase. At the bottom, you are there!

Well, the in-game map says it's in Tu'Lia, past La'loff somewhere. Other than that, I have no idea. Maybe there's some kind of teleporter, like the way you get to Dynamis? Not sure what's up with the orb-type enemy in there either... very curious indeed.
