  • Talismans obtained prior to starting this quest can be used.
  • Shades may be found west of the Dvucca Isle Staging Point, around (G-10).
  • Shades may also be found near the Survival Guide for Caedarva Mire.
  • Trade the Timeworn Talisman and a Sutlac icon.png Sutlac, Irmik Helvasi icon.png Irmik Helvasi, or even both to Yoyoroon in Nashmau. There is a chance that his appraisal of the item will fail. Trading both at once along with the talisman gives the highest chance for success.
  • Should your appraisal succeed, you will have to zone and talk to Yoyoroon again to receive the Key ItemTalisman of the rebel gods.
  • Return to Imperial Whitegate for a cutscene to receive the key items: Key ItemTalisman key and Key Itemspatial pressure barometer.
  • Enter Hazhalm Testing Grounds and examine the Entry Gate to view a cutscene.
  • Examine the Entry Gate again to enter a BCNM.
    • Your opponent will be Odin Prime, he can cast spells like Paralyze, Dispelga, and elemental magic.
    • Odin Prime can also spawn up to 3 Odin Images.
    • At a low percentage, Odin can use Zantetsuken if he stays alive for an extended period of time.
  • After winning the battle, you will enter a cutscene where you will choose your reward.
  • Examine Imperial Whitegate at Aht Urhgan Whitegate (L-8/9) for a cutscene.
  • Speak to Naja Salaheem in Aht Urhgan Whitegate (I-10) for a cutscene to complete the quest. (And to feel very dirty on the inside.)

* Note: In the cutscene after defeating Odin, selecting the option "Release thy Knight" on 12 different completions (including The Rider Cometh) will cause a different cutscene with Odin and at Imperial Whitegate, as well as give a different title for the quest. After that point, all repeats of the Odin Prime battle will be under the quest: A Stygian Pact.
