  • To prevent the awakening of the Warring Triad, Bismarck and Ravana must be cast down once more. Unukalhai declares that the Lord of the Mists will be your first target, and that you shall slay him using the same method as before. The boy then furnishes you with a large gemstone and bids you show it to Chief Sonu of the Zundu, in case he is feeling reluctant to give you all that you require.
  • Chief Sonu believes the gemstone in your possession is a relic of great power. If smashed against a Vundu aetheryte nestled in the Whale's Crown, it will render Bismarck vulnerable... Yet, upon further introspection, you recall no mention of the white whale's newfound invulnerability prior to this. That said, if the primal does have some form of protection, it will need to be circumvented before he can be defeated. Inform Cid of your new task.
  • Cid seems poised to explain in detail how Chief Sonu's request makes no sense whatsoever. However, he instead hazards that it might bring you good luck.
  • With all your might, you smash the gemstone against the aetheryte...and nothing much happens. Out of habit, you attune with the aetheryte...and again, nothing much happens. If your actions had any meaning, it remains to be seen. In any case, Cid is waiting.

    ※The Limitless Blue (Extreme) can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • The floating isles and their inhabitants need no longer fear a grisly end in the White's belly, as the ravenous flying whale has once more been returned to the aether. Chief Sonu should be glad to hear of your latest triumph.
  • Chief Sonu reveals that in returning to Ok' Zundu with the Weeping Eye of the Manukmanai, you were fulfilling an ancient prophecy. Legend has it that a Vanu elder once cast the eyes into the Sea of Clouds, proclaiming that they would return to the Vanu in the possession of a hero, who would then deliver them from destruction. And so, your battle with the White shall be preserved and passed down from generation to generation, doubtless growing greater with each telling...
  • Your victory was written in the aether, and Unukalhai read it long before you returned. There is no time to rejoice in the accomplishment, though, as the Lord of the Hive awaits your coming in quiet meditation.

Mor Dhona[edit]

The Rising Stones[edit]

The Solar[edit]

If we are to prevent the awakening of the Warring Triad, then Bismarck and Ravana must be cast down once more. As for which one to contend with first...
I say we begin with the Lord of the Mists. I am aware of the rather unorthodox method you employed to lure out and slay the white whale before, and had a mind to follow established precedent. That said, islands are not easy to come by... I should hope it is not necessary, but you may as well show this gemstone to Chief Sonu. He will know it as the Weeping Eye of the Manukmanai, and it will ensure that he is completely committed to our cause. Oh, and before you ask, I have already informed Master Garlond of our plans. He is currently en route to the Blue Window. Safe journey to you, Forename.

Abalathia's Spine[edit]

The Sea of Clouds[edit]

Ok' Zundu[edit]

The tramontane returns, and with it the White. So too comes the great netherling warrior... Like double rainbows in the mists, Sonu knows not what to make of this! An eye in the hands of a netherling! Storm clouds of the Vundu are no match for the eye's might! Smash it against the aetheryte in the Whale's Crown and He will be vulnerable once more! Bind Him with chains of steel and drive Him from cloud sea! Return zephyr winds and sunlight to our lands! As sun rises and falls and returns, he who bears an eye cannot be denied!

The Blue Window[edit]

There you are, Forename. The Enterprise is ready to depart whenever you are. ...Say again? Chief Sonu wants you to smash some gemstone against an aetheryte to dispel a barrier of storm clouds? I, uh...I don't even know where to begin... Bah, the hells with it. Maybe it'll bring us good luck. I'll rendezvous with you there. You know, you could just lie and say you did it.
...What? <sigh> Fine, we'll do it the hard way.

The Whale's Crown[edit]

After a pause, you smash the gemstone against the aetheryte. Nothing much happens.
Out of habit, you attune with the aetheryte...and once more, nothing much happens.

Ok' Zundu[edit]

Sonu sees netherling for who he truly is. Netherling is bearer foretold. Once, long ago, in the midst of a great battle with a tribe from the nethers, a horrid, wicked demon comes to feast on the bodies of the fallen. Manukmanai, we name him! Manukmanai, we decry him! For generations he hunts the Vanu Vanu, but this day, we say no more! Greatest of our heroes climbs atop the beast's back, and with blades black as midnight, she rips his eyes from his head, and casts them into cloud sea! "In hour of great need, eyes return to the Vanu. Look to their bearer for salvation.“ So she declares, so it comes to pass! And now, netherling's deeds we remember forevermore! May zephyr winds ever be at your back and sunshine ever warm your brow, O Chosen of the Manukmanai!

Mor Dhona[edit]

The Rising Stones[edit]

The Solar[edit]

You needn't say a word. The aetheric readings left no doubt: the Lord of the Mists is no more. For the time being, at least. Let us turn our attention to the Lord of the Hive, who in quiet meditation awaits your coming...
