  • Edelstein would send you forth to commence the penultimate phase of Operation Archon.
  • Lieutenant Edelstein once more expresses his gratitude for all you have done to lift the spirits of the troops─as well as his own. With morale high once more, the time is nigh to begin the third phase of Operation Archon. March forth to Castrum Meridianum and report for duty to General Raubahn.
  • So begins the penultimate phase of Operation Archon. While the main Alliance host wreaks havoc without, you must steal inside Castrum Meridianum and disable its magitek field generator.
※Castrum Meridianum can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • You have successfully disabled the magitek field generator protecting the Praetorium, and defeated Livia sas Junius into the bargain. Though you are eager to press on with the fourth and final phase of Operation Archon, you will require the use of an airship if you are to reach the Ultima Weapon's resting place. For now, make your way back outside and report to Raubahn.
  • After gruffly reaffirming his trust in your abilities, Raubahn declares the third phase of Operation Archon a success. All that remains is the small matter of finding and destroying the Ultima Weapon.

You have rekindled the flames of courage that burn within our brave men and women's hearts, and for this, I thank you.

And now, the time for battle is nigh. We must march forth with no worries or regrets.

General Raubahn awaits you at Castrum Meridianum. The battle will not be an easy one, but I trust that you are up to the task. Godsspeed,
Grand Company Rank
General Raubahn awaits you at Castrum Meridianum. Godsspeed,
Grand Company Rank
Our hero returns. I trust that your visit has done much to lift the spirits of our garrison on the eve of our greatest battle yet.
Time is of the essence. Let us commence the briefing at once.
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene start.
Brothers and sisters of the Alliance! I would share with you glad tidings!

Doubtless spurred on by news of the siege of Castrum Oriens, the Maelstrom has struck a double blow! Castrum Occidens and Castrum Marinum are now under blockade!

Phase two of Operation Archon is a success!

Reports tell us that the Garleans offered fierce resistance─but that the Admiral yielded them not one ilm.

With Occidens, Marinum, and Oriens thus suppressed, the third phase may begin in earnest!

Even as we speak, the Order of the Twin Adder moves to block the railway leading hither from Castrum Centri. And that can mean but one thing...

The hour is come to strike at the heart of the Garlean invasion force!

...Castrum Meridianum, the den of the Black Wolf!
My fellow Eorzeans. I am Minfilia, Mistress of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn.

There exist myriad barriers that divide us─those of race and nation, language and creed, to name but a few.

Such barriers serve to isolate us from our neighbors...yet they also serve to define who we are. Shorn of them, there would be little to distinguish one from another, and the rich variety of our lives would give way to sterile orthodoxy.

These barriers can never truly be broken down, of course─not so long as there is liberty in the world─but they can be transcended!

Verily, we do so now in coming together for this grand endeavor, to fight side by side in defense of our shared home!
Before me stands the adventurer Forename Surname. You all know him as the man who will lead the unit tasked with destroying the Ultima Weapon.
We Scions know a different Forename, however. We know him as a dear friend who has endured untold hardship on our behalf─a true hero who has ever blazed a path for us to follow. And why do I tell you this? I tell you, friends, because it is time for us to blaze a path for him!
Our objective is to wreak such havoc outside the walls of Meridianum as to afford Ataske and her comrades the time they need to disable the magitek field generator within.
With the path thus cleared, we may finally turn our minds to the true goal of this operation─the destruction of the Ultima Weapon! All troops, prepare for battle!
I fear I can't accompany you this time. The unenviable task of facilitating communications between our forces has been entrusted to the Ironworks, you see. Know, though, that I will be praying for your safe return.
See that you come back to us, my friend. May the Crystal bless you and keep you.
We will suffer the Black Wolf to prowl our lands no more! Let us teach the hunter what it is to be hunted!
Forward, comrades! For Eorzea!
Go now, Forename, and bring us one step closer to the dawn!
Player7 Icon.png Cutscene end.

You must complete the duty Castrum Meridianum to proceed with this quest.

I knew you wouldn't let us down, soldier!

With the Praetorium stripped of its defenses, the way to the Ultima Weapon lies open.

The time is come for the final phase of Operation Archon!
