Four Crystals In Record Time

Vincent Lau

You’ve already seen the beginning of this chapter time and time again; Tiz will awaken in Karl’s inn and the gang will decide to go on another quest to awaken the four crystals.

Like Chapter 7, there is no story development in this chapter. So just head to the crystal temples, slay the bosses, awaken the crystals and head for the Holy Pillar. Per the quota, the bosses are slightly tougher, but nothing to go crying home about. As a reminder, the boss strategies are outlined in Chapter 5.

The asterisk holders have really turned up the heat and you can face some of the toughest battles in the game in this very chapter. Funnily enough, unlike in the previous chapter, the bosses aren’t holding onto any important gear, so don’t hold back and give them what for!

Lastly, here’s the news you’re probably dying to hear–Chapter 8 marks the final time you must awaken the four crystals. If you’ve held out until now, we commend your patience, truly. After you experience the white out in this world’s Holy Pillar, you’ll arrive at the final chapter, which is fittingly The End.
