Boss Fight

  • This fight was initially uncapped at level 75. Level 99 players should have little to no difficulty with this fight.
  • Trusts may be summoned inside this fight.
  • In this BC you fight both Kam'lanaut and his brother Eald'narche at the same time.
Area Boss Abilities Notes
Empyreal Paradox
  • Kam'lanaut:
    • Light Blade: Single-target high damage. Damage is reduced by kiting.
    • En-spells : Earth Blade, Water Blade, Wind Blade, Fire Blade, Frost Blade, Lightning Blade.
      • When he uses his En-spell, nukes of the matching element heal him.
    • Great Wheel: AoE damage and Hate Reset.
  • Eald'narche is a tougher version of the stage 2 boss from Zilart Mission 16.
  • Kam'lanaut casts various debuff spells: Silencega, Slowga, Graviga, and Dispelga.
  • Gravity is difficult to land on Kam'lanaut without Elemental Seal.
  • Eald'narche has approximately 5000 HP.
  • Eald'narche can teleport around the arena.
  • Eald'narche casts all tier III -ga nukes including Bindga and Sleepga II.
  • Eald'narche resists magical damage.
  • Begin by kiting Kam'lanaut while everyone else goes all out on Eald'narche.
  • Stunning Eald'narche's nukes is very helpful.
  • After defeating the brothers, speak to Aldo in Lower Jeuno (J-8) for a cutscene.
    • You must be Rank 5 or higher to receive this cutscene.
  • Wait until Japan midnight and talk to Gilgamesh in Norg for a cutscene to complete the quest.
    • You must also zone after the time rolls over.
    • As of 2017, the wait time is still Japan Midnight and they have not yet changed it.


  • Drop your earring and proceed to the Empyreal Paradox.
    • The fastest way there is via the Home Point warp if you have it. Lumoria → The Garden of Ru'Humet → #1 and descend.
  • Select the ??? near the entrance and erase your memories; "I've already forgotten them" and "Yes, erase my memories".
  • Recomplete Shadows of the Departed and Apocalypse Nigh to re-obtain an earring of your choice.
