  • The serpent lieutenant looks about, seemingly awaiting a visitor.
  • Your conversation with the serpent lieutenant is quickly interrupted by the sylph Maxio, who cheerfully informs you that your fellow Scions have completed their investigation into the aetheric activity of the area. Follow him into the Sylphlands, that you might reconvene with your friends in advance of your meeting with the Lord of Levin.
  • As you venture into the Sylphlands, Maxio warns you to stay vigilant, as tempered sylphs and other dangers lurk at every turn. Follow him deeper into the woods in search of your companions.
  • Maxio stops suddenly along the path, confessing to you that he can go no further for fear of suffering the same fate as his tempered brethren. Thanking him for his service, you press on in search of your friends.
  • Despite─or perhaps because of─the touched sylphs' best efforts at causing a disturbance, the Scions have managed to collect aetheric readings throughout the Sylphlands. Based on the latest of these, Papalymo is convinced that he has identified the location of the summoning ritual. Head to the southeast, and investigate the area surrounding the sylphs' aetheryte.
  • Upon approaching the beastman aetheryte, you find yourself in the presence of Lord Ramuh. Though initially dismissive of your attempts at mediation, the primal elects to suspend judgment until you have undergone a trial by combat. Enter the Lord of Levin's domain, and prove your worth!
※The Striking Tree (Hard) can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • You have defeated the Lord of Levin, and thus earned the right to champion the cause of peace in the Black Shroud. After witnessing your battle with the primal, it appears that Urianger has also found that which he sought...
  • Return to Little Solace and make your report to the serpent lieutenant.
  • You inform the Twin Adder lieutenant of your encounter with─and subsequent victory over─the primal Ramuh. His shock at the news that your audience culminated in combat soon gives way to joy as he realizes the ramifications of your deed for both Gridania and Little Solace.

I was told that a messenger would be sent as soon as your fellow Scions finished their investigation. I do not imagine it will be much longer.
This one returns, and returns with good tidings! Wise ones have finished searching, and have wisely identified the precise location where the touched ones summoned Lord Ramuh!
Your timing is impeccable, my fluttery friend! Might you be so kind as to escort this good man to his fellow Scions?
It would be this one's pleasure, walking one. Please, please come with this one!

! Be safe, and godsspeed!
Wise ones have ventured deep, deep within the Sylphlands. These ones must proceed carefully, and keep an eye out for touched ones.
This one is most sorry, but this one can go no further. Draw too close to Lord Ramuh, and this one may turn mean and nasty like touched ones!
And so this one must say farewell for now. Walking one will find wise ones not far from here, to the south. Go in safety, walking one.
...Don't ask. Suffice it to say that we had something of a situation here.
Sooo...Thancred is Thancred, Papalymo is Papalymo, Y'shtola is Y'shtola, and you are you, right? Well, that's easy enough to remember. This one's name is Yda, in case walking one was wondering. ...JOKE! I'm joking!
Ah, there you are. It is you, isn't it?
...So it's actually you. I am relieved. For a moment, I thought we were dealing with another one of those confounded sylph tricksters.

I swear, with them wreaking havoc with their skin-changing magicks, it's a wonder I was able to finish taking my measurements.

Yes, it was quite the ordeal. You should have seen the look on Y'shtola's face when the one impersonating you suddenly showed up...
...That's quite enough, Papalymo.
...Ahem. My apologies. It's not like me to ramble so.

At any rate, as I was saying, I have finished measuring aetheric activity in the area, and am pleased to say I have reached an indisputable conclusion─to wit, that Ramuh was called forth in the vicinity of the sylphs' aetheryte!

Come, Forename. The Lord of Levin awaits!

My measurements indicate a large aetherial disturbance to the southeast.

Thanks to the antics of the sylphs, we've been dragged to every corner of the Sylphlands...but none of our various readings returned a result of this magnitude. There can be only one conclusion...

Ramuh was called forth in the vicinity of the sylphs' aetheryte!

I suggest we proceed thither with all possible haste─after bidding Maxio here a fond farewell, of course. Should our trusty guide come too close to his deity, there is the distinct possibility that he will fall under the primal's influence.

Come, Forename. The Lord of Levin awaits!

Thine aura betrays thee, servant of Hydaelyn.

Thou art the Bringer of Light...bane of Ifrit, Titan, Garuda, and Leviathan.

I am Ramuh, guardian of the children of the forest.

Thou tramplest upon sacred soil, Bringer of Light. By what right doth man intrude in this sanctuary of the sylphs?

The Gridanians proffer peace? Their words are born of delusion─thine offer, an insult.

Thou speakest of harmony, yet carest naught for my children's desires. They did but wish to dwell beneath these boughs in solitude─yet even that was too much to ask of man.

Thus did they turn to me for succor. The sentence I pronounce upon thy kind is just.

Gridanian or Garlean, it matters not. The good intent of one excuseth not the misdeeds of the other.

Thy conflicts have brought naught but anguish and misery unto the forest. All blame doth lie with the darkness that resideth in the breast of man.

Whence sprung this calamitous seed? In the beginning, no such duality existed. Were light and dark given form when man was born?

It would explain much. Not least why strife and sorrow follow ever in thy wake. Thou canst not deny the urgings of thine own nature.

Knowing that thy mere presence here portendeth tragedy, wilt thou persist in this pretense of peacemaking?

Thou bearest the crystal which I bestowed upon my wayward charges. That they should entrust so precious a gift to thee...

Thou standest apart from thy kin. Thou art the Bringer of Light, aye...but there is something more in thee...

Very well, I shall consider thy proposal...shouldst thou survive my trial.

If thou wouldst champion the cause of harmony, I must have proof that thou art fit to play the role. Weather mine ire, and prove to me thereby that thou hast strength enough to stay the Darkness which threateneth to consume thee.

Yet if thou shouldst be found wanting, know that all men shall perish in the storm of my judgment!

Come to me, Bringer of Light. I shall await thee on the field of battle!
Urianger. It is rare indeed to find you so far from a tome.
The Lord of Levin himself... Never till this day had I looked upon his visage save in painted renderings, made faint by time... Ever shall this scene remain etched in my mind's eye... Ahem. Beg pardon, my lady.
I must beg thine aid on a point of research. If thou art resolved to face Lord Ramuh, I would ask thy leave to observe the event...

I have taken thy measure, Bringer of Light.

And I judge thee a worthy champion. The task of excising the sin that hath taken root in man's heart is thine.

Shrink not from employing thy strength in service to the forest, and the wider realm beyond. Like hungering shadows do the enemies of harmony gather, and meekness will but feed them.

If man is to be delivered from the Dark, it shall be by thy guiding Light alone. Stray not from the path, for if thou dost, thy people shall be truly lost...
Thou hast slain the Lord of Levin. A regrettable act...but a necessary one.

In witnessing thy struggle, a truth hath been revealed unto me. If I mistake not, it may yet prove a chink in the eternal armor of the Ascians.

But let us conclude our present business. I shall expound upon my findings at the Rising Stones anon.

, you have returned! Dare I ask how Ramuh received your visit?

...He challenged you to a test of arms!? It is well, then, that you have some experience in such matters!

The peoples of both Gridania and Little Solace will be relieved to hear that the Lord of Levin has accepted you as the forest's champion of peace.

You have performed a monumental duty this day,
