The locals will mention some information on the King of Rashugal, Nachtigal, who is still alive in this timeline. Unfortunately for him, the news around town seems to be hinting that he is the catalyst and needs to be destroyed.
Head to Orda Palace and use the Lotus Ring to head up to the 4F and enter the Audience Chamber to catch up with Rowen’s old friend.
Boss: Nachtigal (Catalyst)
Focus on Nachtigal’s Water weakness by turning off any abilities on Rowen that are not water-based and switch your weapons to one with this element. This will help you get the vital power hits you need to slash through Nachtigal’s Iron Stance.
This fight is similar to the fight with Nachtigal in the original game, where he used the same powerful attacks that devastated your party’s HP. The first of these is Massacre Arc, which can’t be guarded and is a two hit attack where the character is stabbed and then smashed on the ground, while another powerful attack is Apocalypse Toll, which creates magic rings around that target that explode after a set period of time. Other attacks include Destruction, Terra Pike, and some earth-based artes that are as deadly as the previously mentioned attacks.
When Nachtigal enters Over Limit and his blade begins to glow make sure to run for your life, as his Over Limit and Mystic Artes are very dangerous.
After the fight it’s all deja vu as Nachtigal considers the questions that lead to his downfall in the prime dimension. There is no need to worry about Nachtigal’s future and Rowen’s loss of an old friend since this has all happened before and his fate is already sealed.
Back in Xian Du Rowen will accept a call and Elize will ask you to head to the Inn, so make your way to the Inn to meet up with Driselle for some shocking letters.
