  • This fight was initially uncapped at level 75. Level 99 players should have little to no difficulty with this fight.
  • In this BC you fight both Kam'lanaut and his brother Eald'narche at the same time.
  • Kam'lanaut:
    • He casts various debuff spells: Silencega, Slowga, Graviga, and Dispelga.
    • Gravity is difficult to land without Elemental Seal.
    • Special attacks:
      • 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.
    • Approximately 5000 HP.
    • He can teleport around the arena.
    • He casts all tier III -ga nukes including Bindga, Sleepga II.
    • He is very strong vs. magical damage.
    • Special attacks:

  • 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.


  • Begin by kiting Kam'lanaut while everyone else goes all out on Eald'narche.
  • Stunning Eald'narche's nukes is very helpful.
  • The difficulty of this battle is relatively trivial at level 99, and an absolute joke at 119.

Restart the previous mission, once you throw away your earring to get the new one.
