Cid seems keen to pit you against the next foe in the Deltascape.

— In-game description





  • Cid seems keen to pit you against the next foe in the Deltascape.
  • In the event that Biggs and Wedge are unable to repair the stasis system at Carteneau, Cid believes the only way to prevent Omega from creating a new threat is to triumph in its tests. Accordingly, he is eager for you to return to the Deltascape. Nero's analysis reveals that your next foe is capable of manipulating gravity, and in order to counteract this power, he lends you a magitek levitator which he just happened to assemble. As before, Alpha will go with you into the test world, and grant you the use of his authorization.
  • ※In the event that you leave the Interdimensional Rift, you may re-enter by speaking with the Ironworks hand at the Yawn.
  • Alpha stands ready to enter the Deltascape with you. With each enemy liable to be stronger than the last, you can never prepare too much before stepping through the portal and onto the stage of battle.
  • ※Deltascape V2.0 can be accessed via the Duty Finder.
  • Arriving in the Deltascape, you are confronted by Delta II, a gargantuan and grotesque creature known as Catastrophe. As expected, your foe employs the power of gravity against you, but with the help of Nero's contraption, you are able to weather the worst of its onslaught and emerge triumphant.
  • Nero welcomes you back with a look of smug self-satisfaction. Lest there be any doubt, he explains that the levitator functioned exactly as intended, and that it was not designed to allow you to descend of your own volition. At any rate, that is another mighty foe laid low, and you may turn your attention to the next.


Quest Acceptance

Cid: We must pray that Biggs and Wedge are able to repair the stasis system. If they can't, we will have little choice but to see Omega's experiment all the way to its bitter conclusion. A tall order, I concede...and one that would require you to prove yourself the "mightiest being in creation." Well, we must hope for the best and plan for the worst, which in this case means pressing on with the tests. Are you ready for the next foray? 
Nero tol Scaeva: One moment, Chief. My analysis is yet incomplete, but it would seem Subject Delta II is capable of manipulating gravity. How fortunate, then, that I but recently chanced to assemble something which might mitigate its effects: an anti-gravity gimbal. May it serve you well. 

Speak with Alpha

Alpha: Kweh! Kweh! 

Enter Deltascape V2.0

nero: Ah, there it is. Catastrophe - 

Speak with Nero

Nero tol Scaeva: A rousing performance, made possible by my anti-gravity gimbal. Lest you wonder, you are not supposed to be able to descend of your own volition. The device worked quite as intended. It just wasn't intended for use on living - Well, let's just say it wasn't exactly its intended use. At any rate, that's another mighty foe laid low.And may I say that I had every faith you would succeed.
