Final Chapter

Falias Stonehenge Fragment.png Name The Final Chapter NPC Eabha, Nuadha
  • Steps 1, 2 and 3 below appear as 3 separate objectives in the quest. Completed objectives will be remembered on subsequent attempts.
    • For example, if you complete steps 1 and 2 but fail on 3, then when you re-attempt the quest you proceed directly to step 3.
    • This is in contrast to previous generations where the finale quest had to be completed in a single run.
    • However, final step, composed of four different stages, must be completed in a single run, making it the hardest step.

  1. You will receive the solo unlimited time Shadow Mission, The Final Chapter, and a Falias Fragment. Warp to Falias using the Falias Fragment to start the mission.
    • If you give up or fail the mission, you can obtain it again by right click and using the Falias Fragment.
      • This fragment is untradable and will not disappear on use until the mission is over.
      • If you need room and don't have 2x1 room in your inventory, you may right click-use the fragment and it will be moved to your temporary inventory with indefinite time.
    1. Talk to the Falias Gatekeeper. He will give you 5 Fire Crystals, 10 Wind Crystals and a Cylinder.
      • If you fail the quest and restart, you may talk to the Gatekeeper again to receive a reminder of what to do, but it is not required and you will not receive any further crystals or cylinders.
    2. Restore the stonehenges.
      • Stand near the lithograph in the center, cast Shock on yourself, and click on the lithograph. A panel will glow blue, pointing to which stonehenges need to be fixed.
        • DO NOT transfer Shock's ability to the Brionac or it will not work.
      • Click the stonehenge to attempt to restore it.
        • There may be Aonbharrs guarding the stonehenge.
        • If the repair fails, the stonehenge will crumble, and Aonbharr will appear either around the stonehenge or further out near the Falias Floating Stone. Defeat the Aonbharr and collect any Falias Stonehenge Fragments they drop. You may need to defeat more than one wave to obtain a fragment. Use the fragment to repair the stonehenge.
        • Beware of the Falias Floating Stone's Fireball or Thunder.
        • It is possible to never once come across a fragment or a need for one.
      • After restoring a stonehenge, another of the litograph's panels may glow blue. If so, repeat the above process. The number of repetitions required seems random.
        • Once enough stonehenges have been restored, a portal will open at the altar North of lithograph. Enter the portal to trigger a cutscene.
    3. Defeat Nuadha. There are four phases to this fight.
      • See here for more specific information.
      1. Use Morrighan's Feather on Nuadha when he is poised to strike with Light of Sword.
        • This is done by using the feather and then clicking Nuadha, though you must be close to him in order for the feather to work.
        • During this phase, the message "When Nuadha's swords are scattered in Falias, use Morrighan's Feather" prompts you to use the feather as Nuadha casts his sword.
        • The feather can be dragged to a hotkey for ease of use.
          • NOTE: There seems to be a bug with the current patch that will not let you hotkey the feather.
        • Nuadha will constantly be in Flight and use Spear of Light, Fury of Light and Teleportation, and will occasionally land to attempt a Smash.
          • When he goes down to ground level, he will never use a Normal Attack, but always a Smash. Simply hit him to avoid the attack. Afterward, he will go back to flying and use his Light spells.
        • It will take a while before Nuadha uses his sword, so avoiding his attacks is the top priority at this time.
        • Play Dead will never work on Nuadha; he is constantly on the offensive.
        • Successful use of Morrighan's Feather will trigger a cutscene, marking completion of phase 1.
      2. Defeat the 3 Daols.
        • You will be using Awakening of Light for the remainder of the quest without time limit. If you revive at any point during this part, Awakening of Light will automatically be reactivated.
        • You will also acquire the Wings of Eclipse and Wings of Rage skills from Morrighan. Wings of Rage does not lose EXP, however Wings of Eclipse will lose EXP and may rank down.
          • Neamhain's powers of Spear of Light and Fury of Light are disabled.
          • Cichol's Shadow Spirit skill remains available. If your Shadow Spirit count is empty at this point, a message saying "A dark power fills your spirit" will appear and the shadow count will be replenished.
        • Three Daols will spawn to assist Nuadha.
          • The Daols can be defeated by cutting away at their protection using Shadow Spirit or Brionac.
            • AOE summons bypass their protection so you may apply a hit and run strategy.
            • There is currently a glitch that causes Shadow Spirit and Brionac to not properly reduce the monster's defensive stats. The only way to deal sufficient damage to the Daols is to use Shadow Spirit, which ignores their defensive stats.
        • Though you begin this stage outside the mob's normal detection range, Nuadha will immediately detect you and commencing walking slowly towards you. However, if you can break his aggro before he gets too close, he will not re-detect you provided you keep your distance.
          • Elves may do this by using Hide.
          • Other races can summon a pet, have it attack Nuadha and then desummon it. Usually Nuadha will then walk the small distance to where the pet vanished and stop. Occasionally you may need to repeat the process with another pet.
          • If you manage to make Nuadha stop very close to the center of the circle, it is possible to run around the outside of the circle without him detecting you again. This makes it easier to deal with the Daols.
        • In this stage, Nuadha will not fly. When he detects you he will walk towards you for a normal attack, will sometimes run at you and Smash, and only rarely attacks with Spear of Light.
        • Because you are in Demigod mode throughout the rest of the mission, your Mana regeneration will be amplified.
          • It is suggested to use Mana Shield and Mana Potions if needed throughout the rest of the mission.
        • When all 3 Daols are defeated, a cutscene triggers, marking completion of phase 2.
      3. Defeat Nuadha.
        • Morrighan will arrive to aid you in battle. If she dies, the mission fails.
        • In this phase, Nuadha loses his invincibility, but will often fly. When he is in flight, attacks only do 1 damage to him. Using Wings of Rage has chance of knocking him down. Simultaneous use of Wings of Rage with Morrighan will almost always knock him back down.
          • Do not use Windmill. Due to the nature of Windmill resetting the AI, it tends to make Nuadha use Flight.
        • Wings of Rage will only do 1 damage to Nuadha, despite its inherit ability to ignore the opponent's defensive stats.
        • In this stage, Nuadha can run with Fury of Light and will sometimes pound the ground to produce a shockwave. He will no longer use Smash.
        • Defeating Nuadha will trigger a cutscene. Afterwards, you will be warped back to central Falias.
      4. Destroy any stonehenge.
        • One of the several stonehenges needs to be destroyed. This triggers another cutscene that marks the end of Generation 12.
          • It is not necessary to engage any Aonbharrs, if any are still alive.
  2. Complete the quest (38,000 EXP) and The Ark of Falias will disappear.
