Varshahn has glad tidings to share.

— In-game description





  • Varshahn has glad tidings to share.
  • Anticipation plain in his voice, Varshahn informs you that both the reinforced warding scales and the artificial Atomos have been completed. Assuming they function as intended, all is now in readiness for your quest to find Azdaja, his sister, in the Thirteenth. Thus do you set off to join your comrades at the Great Work.
  • You take stock of the items needed for your journey, and, by way of a surprise, Varshahn is presented with a new vessel better suited for the dangers ahead. You, too, are given a gift of sorts in the form of Hydaelyn's navigational crystal; harboring the power of Light, the relic could well aid you in your mission. With nothing left to discuss, you make your way to Akyaali, where your boat awaits.
  • The boat bears you to Alzadaal's Legacy, and you descend into the chamber of the voidgate. There, all gathered watch on with bated breath as Varshahn steps forward to lift the seal.
    • ※In the event that you leave Weaver's Warding, you may re-enter by speaking with the veteran Radiant in Akyaali.
  • In the name of Alzadaal III, the voidgate is revealed, and thence enlarged by the Atomos to a size able to accommodate a man. At last, the way is open. Beyond lies a castle swarming with voidsent, and your first task upon arriving will be to deal with any hostile entities.
    • ※To enlist your companion NPCs for this duty, speak with them near the entrance or access Duty Support via the main menu. Use the Duty Finder if you wish to complete the instance alongside fellow players.
  • After hurtling through the emptiness of the rift, you emerge in the bowels of the forewarned castle. Its occupants are hells-bent on devouring your aether, and you must fight them off lest your quest come to a premature end.
    • ※In the event that you leave Troia Castle, you may return via Weaver's Warding.
  • The battle takes an unexpected turn when the castle's mistress is devoured by a fearsome voidsent named Scarmiglione, but your fellow uninvited guest soon falls by your hand. With the area secured, you and your comrades discuss the next course of action.
  • In your brief time in the Thirteenth, you have been made keenly aware how little you know about voidsent. If you are to survive their world, you must learn their ways.


Varshahn: Ah, excellent timing, [Forename]. Just a moment ago, I received word from the Ironworks.

Varshahn: They have completed their task, and are on their way with the reinforced warding scales.

Varshahn: Similarly, our alchemists have also succeeded in creating an artificial Atomos.

Varshahn: All is in readiness for our journey to the void.

Varshahn: I have instructed our comrades to gather at the Great Work. Let us head there at once.

“In Search of Azdaja” accepted.

You have left the sanctuary.

You have entered a sanctuary.

You are now in the instanced area Thavnair .

Current instance can be confirmed at any time using the /instance text command.

Orchestrion: Now playing Those We Can Yet Save.

Varshahn: Our comrades are here, but the Ironworks people have yet to arrive.

Estinien: To thus create a voidsent... Hannish alchemists are as clever as they are bold.

Orchestrion: Now playing Spoken without End.

Y'shtola: There you are, [Forename].

Y'shtola: I present to you the fruits of the alchemists' labor: the artificial Atomos.

Y'shtola: Though we've yet to put it to the proof, its aether is practically identical to that of the original. A truly remarkable feat in so short a time.

Varshahn: Aye, our alchemists have outdone themselves yet again. Small wonder that they are the pride of Radz-at-Han.

Varshahn: I would express my gratitude to Nidhana...but it appears she isn't here.

Y'shtola: She rushed off after bringing the Atomos to attend to a pressing task, but said that she would return ere we set forth.

Y'shtola: Which should be shortly after our friends from the Ironworks arrive with the warding scales...

Cid: Did someone say warding scales? Because it just so happens we have them.

Orchestrion: Now playing None.

Orchestrion: Now playing Dreams Aloft.

Y'shtola: Right on cue. 'Tis good to see you all again.

Y'shtola: But for the president himself to attend... Keen to bear witness to our little experiment, are you?

Cid: You know I am. I was there at the Crystal Tower, lest you forget. I wouldn't miss this for the world.

Cid: You don't mind if we come along and see you off, I hope? It's thanks to these three that we could finish the work so quickly.

Nero tol Scaeva: 'Twas my painstakingly collected data that made the reinforcement possible.

Nero tol Scaeva: The scales will last a good ten years in the void with nary a hint of degradation.

Biggs: As the ones who did the actual reinforcing, we guarantee their quality as well. They'll keep you safe.

Wedge: But enough bragging─here are the scales!

Varshahn: With these, we can search for my sister without fear of corruption. I know not how to repay you.

Cid: Well, my friend, my only regret is that I won't be able to accompany you on this latest grand adventure.

Nidhana: Wait!

Orchestrion: Now playing None.

Orchestrion: Now playing Daring Dalliances.

Varshahn: Nidhana... Is aught the matter?

Nidhana: Before you depart, Your Excellency, there is something we wish to present to you.

Nidhana: Will you please come with me?

Varshahn: You would not delay us without good cause. Very well.

Varshahn: Forgive me, my friends, but I require a moment.

Orchestrion: Now playing Tranquility.

Nero tol Scaeva: ...He's certainly taking his time. What sort of grand present could take so long to receive?

Cid: The kind that'll help him in the void, I presume.

Cid: In that godsforsaken place, he'll need all the help he can get. But you of all people ought to know that, eh?

Orchestrion: Now playing The Last Stand.

???: My apologies for keeping you waiting.

Estinien: Vrtra, I presume.

Varshahn: Indeed. This vessel now serves as a host for my eye.

Varshahn: I was aware that the alchemists were busy preparing something, but this...

Nidhana: We couldn't well send you on such a perilous mission unprepared, Your Excellency.

Nidhana: We spared no effort in crafting the body, and I daresay you'll find it adept at wielding weapons and magicks both.

Nidhana: 'Twas our intent to present it to you sooner, but we could not bring ourselves to do so knowing we could yet improve it further. Pray forgive us...

Varshahn: There is naught to forgive. I am grateful for this fine vessel, and shall put it to good use.

Varshahn: Again, I ask that you watch over Radz-at-Han in my absence. The dangers we go to face are great and many, and I fear I will be unable to give matters here due attention.

Varshahn: And in opening the voidgate, there is ever risk that voidsent will find their way into our world...

Nahbdeen: Rest assured we are more than prepared.

Nahbdeen: Our soldiers have been training under Master Estinien. On my honor, we will not suffer a single fiend to pass.

Nahbdeen: So think only of your mission, Varshahn.

Nahbdeen: Ah, but seeing as this is a different body, perhaps we should use a different name?

Varshahn: Nay, Varshahn shall suffice. Though I may have thus grown up, I am as ever a little brother to you all.

Nahbdeen: As you say, as you say. Go then, Varshahn, and best of luck!

Y'shtola: I have something for you as well.

Y'shtola: While you were gone, Urianger paid us a visit.

Y'shtola: As you may recall, he joined us on our foray into Alzadaal's Legacy in part to conduct research for the Loporrits.

Y'shtola: Research they were delighted to receive, and which has already inspired them to consider new ways to improve their own treasure vault.

Orchestrion: Now playing None.

Y'shtola: As a token of their gratitude, Livingway entrusted a familiar relic to Urianger...

Orchestrion: Now playing Answers (Piano Version).

Y'shtola: Aye, the crystal which showed the way to Meteion.

Y'shtola: The Loporrits no longer have need of it, and thus saw fit to return it to us.

Y'shtola: Harboring the power of Light, it could well aid us in our mission in the void.

Y'shtola: And who better to bear Hydaelyn's gift than Her chosen champion?

Orchestrion: Now playing None.

Orchestrion: Now playing Dawn of a New Era.

Varshahn: If there is nothing left to discuss, then let us depart. Our boat awaits us in Akyaali.

“In Search of Azdaja” objective fulfilled!

You have left the sanctuary.

Orchestrion: Now playing Prayers Repeated.

Veteran Radiant: The satrap and your fellows have already departed for the vault. Are you ready to set forth?

“In Search of Azdaja” objective fulfilled!

You are now in the instanced area Alzadaal's Legacy .

Current instance can be confirmed at any time using the /instance text command.

Orchestrion: Now playing The Map Unfolds.

Y'shtola: For my research into cross-rift travel, this is a moment of truth. For all those who helped us come this far, let us pray we succeed.

Estinien: They've upgraded the vault's guardians to contend with voidsent. A task which was made easier by the surplus of broken units.

Estinien: ...One could argue that I did them a favor.

Nero: An undersea vault guarded by alchemical sentries... Such a place would be an ideal proving ground for new creations.

Biggs: Like us, the alchemists have tremendous passion for their work. If we were to collaborate, I reckon we could achieve some great things!

Cid: It's not only us cheering you on, but the alchemists of old too. You couldn't possibly fail.

Wedge: Good gods, but the treasures here! If I were a thief, I wouldn't notice a voidgate if it came and bit me in the rear!

Nahbdeen: I must say, I'm beginning to feel nervous!

Orchestrion: Now playing Discordance.

Varshahn: I shall now lift the seal.

Varshahn: In the name of Alzadaal III... I cast open this door unto the void!

Y'shtola: Go! Absorb the voidgate!

Y'shtola: It worked. We should have no trouble passing through a gate of that size.

Estinien: What can we expect to find after stepping through?

Varshahn: On my previous foray, I emerged in a castle swarming with voidsent.

Varshahn: I was hopelessly outnumbered and forced to turn back. But together, I am confident we can hold our own.

Varshahn: Upon our arrival, let us deal with any hostile entities and secure the area.

Orchestrion: Now playing The Map Unfolds.

Varshahn: The command of our mission, I leave in your capable hands.

Varshahn: In the event of battle, I shall adapt my tactics to complement your own.

Y'shtola: Should we require healing, I can provide it. 'Twould be a welcome change of pace from my recent havoc wreaking.

Varshahn: Take heart, my friends, and have faith. We will brave this broken world and rescue my sister Azdaja!

A new regular duty has been added to the Duty Finder and Duty Support.

“In Search of Azdaja” objective fulfilled!

Orchestrion: Now playing The Map Unfolds.

Nahbdeen: While the voidgate is open, we must remain vigilant. One voidsent past us is one voidsent too many!

Cid: Once we've seen you off, we'll take our leave. Wouldn't want to get in the soldiers' way should it come to battle.

Cid: It'll be dangerous in the void, but you've been there before and returned safely. We have faith you'll do so again.

Wedge: I'm glad we can see you off properly─unlike when you were abruptly whisked away to the First. Anyway, please be safe!

Biggs: To create a voidsent to expand a voidgate... It's inspired ideas like this that make the impossible possible!

Nero: I expect a comprehensive report upon your return. 'Tis the least I am owed for my invaluable contribution.

Y'shtola: True to our friends' words, the warding scales are eminently reinforced. We needn't fear corruption even should we be wounded by voidsent.

Varshahn: No looking back... I shall keep my eyes ever forward, and trust Radz-at-Han to my people.

Estinien: First time in a reflection or no, I can't say I'm feeling nervous. Not after having journeyed to the edge of existence.

Duty registration complete.

Y'shtola: Those ones appear to be sentries.

Varshahn: Guarding the dungeon, I shouldn't doubt.

Beatrice: It appears rats have wandered into my castle.

Varshahn: Is she the mistress of the castle!?

Beatrice: Tear them apart if you must! Their drifting aether will suffice!

Varshahn: Well fought, my friends. Let us press on.

Orchestrion: Now playing Troian Beauty (Endwalker).

Penitence is no longer sealed!

Varshahn: By the Sisters...

Estinien: That must be the castle proper. Not too shabby.

Varshahn: As grand a castle as any I've seen.

Estinien: If the mistress is here, we must repay her earlier kindness.

Estinien: The woman in the painting─do you suppose...?

Y'shtola: Aye, I suspect it's the mistress in bygone days.

Estinien: Surprise, surprise.

Y'shtola: I sense potent magicks from her. Have care.

The Seat of the Foremost will be sealed off in 15 seconds!

Orchestrion: Now playing On Blade's Edge.

Beatrice: That you should make it this far...

No matter, I will devour you personally!

The Seat of the Foremost is sealed off!

Beatrice: Surrender your souls to me!

Darkness begins to gather!

Darkness begins to gather!

Darkness begins to gather!

Beatrice: H-How can this be? H-How could you resist my gaze?

Beatrice: They're too strong... Someone else can devour them!

The Seat of the Foremost is no longer sealed!

Orchestrion: Now playing Troian Beauty (Endwalker).

Estinien: Hmph, she’s quick on her feet if nothing else.

Y'shtola: She may still be a threat. After her.

Varshahn: Terraces in the sky...

Y'shtola: Do voidsent appreciate flowers too, I wonder...

Estinien: We have her now!

Y'shtola: I sense something sinister in the air...

Beatrice: Trapped in my own domain... No, I don't want to be eaten!

Orchestrion: Now playing FINAL FANTASY IV Battle 2 (Endwalker).

Estinien: It seems he wants to devour us too.

The Garden of Epopts will be sealed off in 15 seconds!

Scarmiglione: Hissssss... Your aether is mine!

The wall rots and crumbles...

Scarmiglione: You must die!

Scarmiglione: My blade thirstsss for blood!

Scarmiglione: Protect me, my minions!

Scarmiglione's minions answer his call!

Scarmiglione: I give you a taste of true dessspair!

Y'shtola: Such overwhelming power!

Estinien: Brace yourselves!

Scarmiglione: Stubborn mortals. I have not finished with you yet!

Scarmiglione: Come, fill your lungs!

Scarmiglione: No... I will not be defeated by you!

The Garden of Epopts is no longer sealed!

Orchestrion: Now playing Victory!.

The Fell Court of Troia has ended. You are now in the instanced area The Fell Court of Troia . Current instance can be confirmed at any time using the /instance text command. Orchestrion: Now playing None. Estinien: This Scarmiglione─he knew the gate had opened.

Y'shtola: And not for the first time. He and his brethren must keep watch over the portal.

Varshahn: As we do ours. But to unflinchingly consume a fellow voidsent...

Varshahn: Like men, perhaps they form factions and fight amongst themselves.

Estinien: The question is, what will the minions do?

Orchestrion: Now playing Tremble.

Estinien: Your mistress is no more, and the one who consumed her we slew in turn. Do you still mean to try us?

Y'shtola: I expect some voidsent are more intelligent than others. Perhaps these ones simply do not understand our words.

Estinien: Hmph. Even beasts ought to understand strength.

Varshahn: There is much we do not know about voidsent. If we are to survive their world, 'twould be wise to learn their ways.

What will you say?

> Let's proceed with caution and pick up what we can.

> Don't overthink it—we'll improvise as we go along.

Varshahn: Sage advice, my friend. 'Tis reassuring to have one so experienced with us.

Varshahn: I am here, Sister. Finally here. And I will find you─I swear it...

“In Search of Azdaja” objective fulfilled!

Orchestrion: Now playing Troian Beauty (Endwalker).

Varshahn: I never dreamed I would come this far. I can't thank you all enough for your cooperation.

Estinien: It seems the minions are keeping their distance for now. Let's carry on.

Feral Voidsent: Grrr... Grrraaagggh!

Watchful Voidsent: You look tastier every time you walk by... <slurp> But I mustn’t eat you... I mustn’t eat you...

Forlorn Voidsent: Ahhh, my mistress... What must I do to bask in your sublime gaze once more?

Fearful Voidsent: Without a master to rule us, it won't be long before we start preying on one another. And the weak are the first to be devoured. I must find someone strong to serve, and quickly...

Troian Attendant: I should be glad to show you to the hydromantic terraces, if it please you.

Y'shtola: This castle should serve as a base of operations for now.

Y'shtola: Ere we set our sights elsewhere, let's see what there is to learn here.

“In Search of Azdaja” complete!

From this point onward, you will not encounter aetherytes for a while. Should you leave Troia Castle, you may return here via Weaver's Warding.

Additionally, you may now enter the Fell Court of Troia with a party of NPC avatars. To make use of this feature, open the Trust interface located under Duty in the main menu.
