Into the Blue Devourer of Worlds


Solo duty is a straightforward fight against a mob of soldiers. Target the healer enemies first to make things go smoothly. Alphinaud as an Arcanist will heal you when needed, and will have a Ruby Carbuncle to help with damage.


  • Stand /lookout at the isle's eastern edge.
  • Stand /lookout farther to the north.
  • Succeed in a Solo Duty.
  • Speak with the Lonu Vanu.


  • Alphinaud has a mind to start searching the Blue Window.
  • Alphinaud declares that you two should begin searching the isles in earnest for the Soleil. Follow him east and stand /lookout for the missing airship.
  • Though your vantage point affords an excellent view of the surrounding isles, you see nothing resembling the archbishop's airship. Proceed north and stand /lookout once more.
  • In the course of your search, you come upon a most unexpected sight: a unit of imperial troops surrounding a terrified Vanu Vanu. Before you can assess the situation, the troops mistake you for Ishgardians and attempt to seize you as well, apparently under the orders of “Lord van Hydrus.” With Alphinaud's help, you manage to defeat the Garleans, thus rescuing the Vanu prisoner.
  • Lonu Vanu, as he names himself, expresses his profound gratitude for your intervention. Though the presence of the imperials is an unfortunate development, the discovery that the Vanu here are not openly hostile to you and Alphinaud makes up for it.
