Visual Chart

Using special abyssite stones, monsters called "Voidwalkers" may be summoned from the parallel world of Abyssea. These monsters are an integral part of Trial of the Magians for the creation of Empyrean Weapons.

Getting Started

Speak to Assai Nybaem in Ru'Lude Gardens (G-10).

You can procure clear abyssite from Assai Nybaem for 1,000 gil.

When you have an abyssite key item, resting will check to see if there are any appropriate NMs in the zone by giving a message that it is vibrating and emitting light.
Without such a reaction, that means that there are no Voidwalkers in the area. If the abyssite vibrates softly but does not emit light, it means that all of the monsters of that particular tier are waiting to respawn.
If the abyssite vibrates softly and emits light, it means that there is a Voidwalker in the general vicinity.
If there is a Voidwalker significantly close to your position, you will receive a message indicating the distance and direction of the NM and the strength of the vibration of the abyssite will give a general indication of the NM's strength.


Each tier of Voidwalker has a different message for the resonation:

Tier Type Abyssite Message Respawn Time
1 Small Fry feebly Within Minutes
2 NM softly 60 Minutes
3 Shadow HNM/True HNM solidly 120+ Minutes
4 Yilbegan strongly Information Needed Minutes

There are two unused messages: "very strongly" and "furiously" in the dat files that may be used for future tiers of VNMs.

The tier 3 and 4 NMs seem to have two different versions that can spawn, "Shadow" and "True". They are differentiated by the "Shadow" versions lacking a shadow. The "True" versions grant a title and drop rings, whereas the "Shadow" versions do not. There have been reports of Tier 3 and 4 mobs gaining or losing shadows over the course of battles, but the mechanic of this change is currently unknown.

How It Works

The system works as such: You purchase a Clear abyssite from Assai Nybaem, then rest in any zone with mobs in order to hunt down and pop a Voidwalker "Small Fry" or Tier 1 monster.
After defeating the Small Fry, there is a chance that the Clear abyssite will upgrade into a Colorful abyssite. You rest in order to hunt down and pop a Voidwalker "NM" or tier 2 monster. After defeating the NM, there is a chance that the Colorful abyssite will upgrade into a specific abyssite to that cluster of zones.

The specific abyssites will only pop the True or Shadow HNMs in the cluster of zones that it is from. From this point on, the abyssites will break when the Voidwalker spawns, so take care when trying to pop them.
All of the Voidwalker HNMs spawned with the specific abyssites will have a chance of dropping a Black abyssite regardless of shadow status. This Voidwalker NM may be popped in any zone.

Note: Spawning a T3 specific color (purple, blue, etc) or T4 Black abyssite will cause the immediate loss of the abyssite. You must farm all over again.
