The next incarnation of the Keeper of the Apocalypse is attempting to cross over into Vana'diel. Sing the Lay of the Immortals before the fifth mothercrystal and put an end to this threat once and for all!


After completing Shadows of the Departed, you must wait until after midnight in Japan to activate this quest.

Go to the following areas in order to receive a cut scene from each one:

Check the Transcendental Radiance again to enter the BC versus Eald'narche and Kam'lanaut with a 30 minute time limit.

Once you have defeated the Zilart brothers go to the Tenshodo in Lower Jeuno and speak to Aldo.

Wait until Japan midnight and talk to Gilgamesh in Norg for a cut scene to complete the quest.

Gilgamesh gives you the choice of four earrings to choose from.

Im rank 10 in Windy and currently Rank 2 in Sandy. I found out after beating Apocolypse Nigh that I have to be rank 5 to get the CS with Aldo. If I switch back to Windy, will I still get the CS?

Went in as the following:

It was over before I could even use meds...

We buffed outside, went in, and raped.

I only got to stun the little guy twice because the SAM went ape **** on him and they dropped him in seconds.

I ended up chain stunning the big brother while our mellees went to town.

Kam got off a tripple AoE attack but midway the WHM benedictioned and we just never eased up on them.

Pretty easy fight if people go in with the mentality of going balls deep insane.

check Apocalypse Nigh for NM info.

this is by far one of the most annoying fights ive been in.

-buff inside, bros dont atk til u charge them.
-u will lose xp, being this a quest not a mission.

some notes on the nms:
-kams enspell can be dipseld.
-both nms have blink and/or stoneskin on at the start (unconfirmed)
-eald uses bindga which is a ***** if rdm/drk is bound away from melee.
(i lost half my stun time by being bound away from melee)
-slowga is a ***** as well, erase tank, any mage that can stun asap.
-rdm enfeebs can land on nms; i.e. slow2 etc.

won w/5 PT setup: pld(Talint), mnk(Cobhc), mnk(Hunter), rdm(Leauce), whm(Niyah) @75 HADES server

be prepared for a crazy fight, the -ga spells from the nms are so annoying.
take out the kid asap, 2hr on the kid if u have to;
we only needed one mnk to 2hr the kid, the other mnk saved it for kam.
once the kid is down, the fight isnt too difficult.

kam can do massive dmg quick, and his great wheel tp move resets hate which
is very annoying.
keep having ur DDs go mad on him and keep the tanks hp up.
dispelga is also very annoying, trying to keep ppl @par is hard enough.
just try to keep ppl alive as long as possible, dont hesitate to 2hr.

-erase/haste the tank asap
-erase stunners, if u have a blu, definitely erase/haste them
-whm throw on random barspells whenever possible to tone down dispelga
-do all u can to kill the kid asap
-stay focused, have fun

i found our fight very hectic, lost half my stun time vs. eald because mnks were bound away from me.
luckily they were still able to take him down, even though they were hit w/ -ga spells.
kams -ga spells are annoying, his tp move sux(hate reset almost killed me), and he hit pld hard at times.
im so glad we had a whm ^^; thx niyah for helpin!

we won w/5, whats up SE!
gl all.

added notes:
-u can sleep tp before entering the fight!
-rdm just stun his -ga spells
