=== Walkthrough ===

*Zone into [[Al'Taieu]] for a cutscene.  
+
*Enter [[Al'Taieu]] for a cutscene.
*Return to [[The Garden of Ru'Hmet]] and pass through the Sealed Portal to get to the main garden elevator. Choose to decend from the first floor and zone into the [[Empyreal Paradox]]. Check the Transcendental Radiance for for a cutscene and then check it again to enter the battleground.
+
*Return to [[The Garden of Ru'Hmet]], and pass through the ''Cermet Portal'' to get to the main garden elevator. Choose to descend from the first floor to enter [[Empyreal Paradox]].
*You will now face [[Promathia]] himself.  
+
*Check the ''Transcendental Radiance'' for a cutscene. Checking it again will allow you to enter the battlefield: '''Dawn'''
*[[Prishe]] and [[Selh’teus]] will appear to help. They will generally take care of themselves, but Prishe can be healed if she draws aggro.
+
 
*[[Promathia]] has two forms. Once you beat the first form, you can rest before engaging the second form.
+
=== Battle ===
*[[Promathia]] isn't hard to hit. A Level 75 DD eating sushi will have capped accuracy; without sushi, they should have about 83% accuracy.
+
*You will now face [[Promathia]]. '''{{testimonials}}'''
====First form====
+
*Soloable at level 75+ with [[Trust]]. Trivial at [[Item Level]].
*Promathia's first form has about 8000 HP. It uses the following special attacks:
+
*The time limit for the battle is 30 minutes.
:* '''Empty Salvation:''' [[AoE]] damage (~250)
+
*All buffs and [[TP]] are removed upon entering the battlefield.
:* '''Pestilent Penance:''' [[Cone Attack]] damage (~400) and [[Plague]]
+
*[[Prishe]] and [[Selh'teus]] will fight with you. Among other abilities, they can heal themselves but Prishe, '''and only''' Prishe, can be healed by the party as well. If she's K.O.'d, it is possible to cast [[Raise]] on her and she will go back to fighting with full HP. She can't be healed using Curing Waltz.
:* '''Malevolent Blessing:''' [[Cone Attack]](?) damage (400-500) and [[Curse]]
+
*Since [[Selh'teus]] cannot be healed by the party, just letting them do the fight will not work because if Selh'teus is defeated, the fight will be over.
:* '''Infernal Deliverance:''' [[AoE]] damage and [[Stun]]
+
*In addition to this, if the entire party is K.O.'d at any point during the fight, they will be immediately removed from the battlefield. The game will not allow the usual 3 minutes for someone to get back up like it typically does in other battlefields. Thus at least one member has to be conscious at all times for the battle to go on.
:* '''Chains of (Apathy, Arrogance, ?):''' No effect(?)
+
*[[Promathia]] has two forms. There is an opportunity to recover after beating the first form, but on both forms eventually Prishe will engage and start the fight on her own.
:* '''Comet (spell):''' Single-target magic damage
+
*[[Promathia]] has low evasion.
 +
*[[Promathia]] is immune to the spell [[Stun]], and either immune or extremely resistant to all {{Dark}} elemental spells such as [[Aspir]]. [[Head Butt]] also seems to do little-to nothing as far as stuns. I believe [[Promathia]] is just completely immune to the stun effect, except from [[Selh'teus]].
 +
*Upon defeating [[Promathia]]'s second form, every ''conscious'' party member (including those doing it for the first time) will receive 2000 [[Experience Points]] or [[Limit Points]]. The party will appear outside in [[Al'Taieu]] and receive the title: '''Averter of the Apocalypse'''
 +
 
 +
=== First form ===
 +
*[[Promathia]]'s first form has about 8,000 HP. It uses the following special attacks:
 +
:* '''[[Empty Salvation]]:''' [[AoE]] (range 25?) damage (~250) and [[Dispel]] 3 effects
 +
:* '''[[Pestilent Penance]]:''' [[Cone Attack]] damage (~400) and [[Plague]]
 +
:* '''[[Malevolent Blessing]]:''' [[Cone Attack]] damage (400-500) and [[Curse]]
 +
:* '''[[Infernal Deliverance]]:''' [[AoE]] (targeted?) damage and [[Stun]], ignores [[Utsusemi]]
 +
:* '''Chains of ([[Chains of Apathy|Apathy]], [[Chains of Arrogance|Arrogance]], [[Chains of Cowardice|Cowardice]], [[Chains of Envy|Envy]], and [[Chains of Rage|Rage]]):''' [[AoE]] long-duration [[terror]] to any [[Hume]]s, [[Elvaan]], [[Tarutaru]], [[Mithra]], and [[Galka]], respectively.  If you reclaimed your "light" key item in [[The Garden of Ru'Hmet]] by climbing the tower corresponding to your race, you will be immune to this effect.
 +
:* '''[[Comet]] (spell):''' Single-target magic damage (600-900).  Can be absorbed by [[Utsusemi]].
  
 
*[[Prishe]] fights along with you.
 
*[[Prishe]] fights along with you.
:*She uses a [[Daedalus Wing]] when you start to fight (stronger version of the Icarus Wing?)
+
:*She eats [[Ambrosia]] and uses a [[Daedalus Wing]] when you start to fight.
:*She uses the [[Auroral Uppercut]] [[Weapon Skill]], which is rather weak (23 damage).
+

+
:*She also casts [[Divine Magic]] nukes on [[Promathia]] and [[Cure]]s herself and the party.
 +
:*If she is defeated, players can [[Raise]] her.  She will get up with 100% HP and no weakness.
  
*[[Selh'teus]] does not fight during the first form.
+
*[[Selh'teus]] fights along with you a bit too.
====Second form====
+
:*His '''[[Luminous Lance]]''' attack does a bit of damage and stuns [[Promathia]] for about 25 seconds.
*Promathia's second form has about 12000 HP. It uses the following special attacks:
+
:*[[Selh'teus]] cannot be cured.
:* Empty Salvation, Pestilent Penance, Malevolent Blessing, Infernal Deliverance as above
+
 
:* '''Seal of Quiescence:''' [[AoE]] [[Silence]] which cannot be removed, lasts up to 75 seconds
+
=== Second form ===
:* '''Winds of Oblivion:''' [[AoE]] [[Amnesia]] (disable Job Abilities), lasts up to 75 seconds
+
*[[Promathia]]'s second form has about 12,000 HP. He still uses '''Empty Salvation''', '''Pestilent Penance''', '''Malevolent Blessing''', '''Infernal Deliverance''', plus some new attacks:
:* '''Meteor (spell):''' [[AoE]] magic damage (300-600)
+
:* '''[[Seal of Quiescence]]:''' [[AoE]] [[Mute]], lasts up to 75 seconds. <s>It cannot be healed by things like [[Silena]] or [[Echo Drops]], you must wait it out.</s> ''As of July 2017, Echo Drops do work''.
::* He casts this once a minute; it takes 10 seconds to cast.
+
:* '''[[Winds of Oblivion]]:''' [[AoE]] [[Amnesia]], lasts up to 75 seconds. It cannot be cured by [[Ecphoria Ring]], you must wait it out.
:* '''Bastion of Twilight:''' [[Magic Shield]] effect
+
:* '''[[Meteor]] (spell):''' [[AoE]] magic damage (300-600)
:* '''Wheel of Impregnability:''' [[Invincible]] effect
+
:** He casts this once a minute; it takes 10 seconds to cast, which is plenty of time to run out of range.
*You can tell which shield is up by looking at the big ring behind Promathia. Red is physical, green is magic.
+
:** It should be noted that though he prefers [[Meteor]] he may still cast [[Comet]] in his second form.
 +
 
 +
:* '''[[Bastion of Twilight]]:''' [[Magic Shield]] effect
 +
:* '''[[Wheel of Impregnability]]:''' [[Physical Shield]] effect

 +
 
 +
After the battle you will be put in a cutscene.  At the conclusion of this cutscene you will receive the Permanent Key Item {{KeyItem}}[[Tear of Altana]].
 +
 
 +
== Finishing Up ==
 +
Wait until after [[Japanese Midnight]], to get the following cutscenes.
 +
 +
Bid farewell to some of your companions. You can visit them in any order.
 +
 
 +
;[[Tenzen]] - Return to the East:
 +
*Head to [[Metalworks]] ([[Home Point]] #1) and talk to [[Cid]] on the second floor, at (H-8) for a cutscene.
 +
 
 +
;[[Jabbos]] - Newfound Family:
 +
*Visit [[Oldton Movalpolos]] for a cutscene.
 +
 
 +
;[[Louverance]] - A Name for the Ages:
 +
*Head to [[Southern San d'Oria]] ([[Home Point]] #4) and talk to [[Hinaree]] in [[Count Caffaule's Manor]] at (B-6) for a cutscene.
 +
*Travel to [[Uleguerand Range]] for a cutscene. You can use the [[Home Point]] or [[Unity Concord]] warp (level 128).
 +
*Return to Count Caffaule's Manor for a cutscene.
 +
 
 +
;Chebukkis - A Meteoric Reunion:
 +
*Head to (C-8) of [[Port Windurst]] ([[Home Point]] #1) and talk to [[Chipmy-Popmy]] at the Fishing Guild for a cutscene.
 +
:*May require more than one attempt to receive the proper cutscene. Be sure your cutscene involves "a trio of wandering comedians."
 +
*Head to [[Bibiki Bay - Purgonorgo Isle]] and check the [[??? Warmachine]] at (H-11) for a cutscene and a [[Colored Drops|Colored Drop]]. The color appears to be random, at least the current Vana'diel day does not seem to affect it.
 +
:*If your inventory is full when you start the CS or you disconnect in the middle of it, just click the Warmachine again to get it.
 +
:*The fastest method to get there is via [[Atmacite Refiner]], but requires [[Hyacinth Stratum Abyssite II]].
 +
:*The following event-related RSE swimsuits have an enchantment that can teleport you to the isle:
 +
::*[[Custom Gilet +1]] - Hume
 +
::*[[Magna Gilet +1]] - Elvaan
 +
::*[[Elder Gilet +1]] - Galka
 +
::*[[Savage Top +1]] - Mithra
 +
::*[[Wonder Maillot +1]] - Tarutaru
 +
:*Do note that retrieving an item with a reuse-timer from an [[Item Depository|Event Item Storer]] will result in a reset of the timer to its maximum amount. In other words, these can not be used before 20 hours has passed from retrieving it.
 +
 
 +
;[[Shikarees]] - In the Name of Justice:
 +
*Enter [[Mhaura]] for a cutscene.
 +
 
 +
==='''The Chains Fall Free'''===
 +
After all the above cutscenes:
 +
*Head to [[Ru'Lude Gardens]] ([[Home Point]] #1) and approach the palace for a cutscene.
 +
*Go to [[Upper Jeuno]] ([[Home Point]] #1) and check the [[Marble Bridge Eatery]] door for a cutscene with [[Esha'ntarl]].
 +
*After the cutscene, using the door again will allow you to obtain one of the three "CoP rings". You can continue with the cutscenes without making your decision yet.

*'''Recommendation:''' Rajas Ring is the only one that's still useful in modern gear sets due to [[Store TP]]+5.
 +
*If the ring is discarded, a new one can be obtained by revisiting the Marble Bridge.
 +
**If the ring is discarded on the day it was obtained, you must wait until after Japanese Midnight before the cutscene will play.
 +
**If the ring is discarded again, a wait of 27 days (Earth Time) is required before the rings will be available again.
 +
**If the ring is discarded a second time, the Marble Bridge door MUST be used to activate the timer.
 +
*Head to [[Tavnazian Safehold]] and examine the Walnut Door at (K-7) of the upper floor (North) for a cutscene.
 +
*Head to [[Lufaise Meadows]] and approach the Blueblade Fell at (J-6) for the final full-screen cutscene, during which the song [[Distant Worlds]] (Full Vocal) will play.
 +
**There are hordes of [[:Category:Rocs|Rocs]] called [[Abraxas]]' above level 85+ on the way to the Fell, so some kind of a source for [[Invisible_(Status_Effect)|Invisibility]] is highly recommended.
 +
**[[Sneak_(Status_Effect)|Sneak]] is also recommended prior to viewing the cutscene, for a party of around level 80 fomor spawn at Blueblade Fell during nighttime.
 +
** As of the July 2016 update, you can now ride mounts in [[Lufaise Meadows]], eliminating the need for [[Invisible_(Status_Effect)|Invisibility]] and [[Sneak_(Status_Effect)|Sneak]], if you have a mount.
 +
*After the cutscene, the title '''Banisher of Emptiness''' will be awarded and the quest [[Storms of Fate]] becomes available.
 +
**If you weren't on or past [[Both Paths Taken]] of [[:Category:Rhapsodies of Vana'diel Missions|Rhapsodies of Vana'diel]], you can now continue those missions unimpeded.
  
*[[Selh'teus]] fights against the second form.
+
==='''Trust Magic and Atma Rewards'''===
:* His [[Luminous Lance]] attack does a bit of damage and stuns Promathia for about 25 seconds.
+
*At this point, return to the Walnut Door in [[Tavnazian Safehold]] (K-7) and examine it to learn [[Trust: Prishe]].
:* His [[Revelation]] attack just does damage.
+
**This requires completion of either [[Trust: Bastok]], [[Trust: San d'Oria]], or [[Trust: Windurst]].
:* If he gets in trouble, he has a [[Redemption]] move that gives him and everyone around him full HP, MP and TP.
+
**'''You cannot obtain [[Trust: Prishe]] if the quests [[Storms of Fate]] or [[Shadows of the Departed]] are in progress, or if [[Apocalypse Nigh]] is in progress and the cutscene occurring in [[Sealion's Den]] has not yet been obtained. As such, it's strongly recommended you do this as soon as possible.'''
 +
***These are the official conditions stated by Square-Enix. However, many people still find themselves unable to obtain the Trust spells even with these conditions met. In that case, complete [[Apocalypse Nigh]] and you are guaranteed to be able to receive both [[Trust: Prishe]] and [[Trust: Ulmia]].
 +
*[[Prishe]] makes references to the following quests if you have completed them:
 +
**[[In the Mood for Love]]: mentions a jeweler
 +
**[[A Chocobo's Tale]]: mentions sharing something with a young girl
 +
**[[Hook, Line, and Sinker]]: mentions a fisherman
 +
**[[Apocalypse Nigh]]: mentions [[Eald'narche]] and other mission bosses
 +
*Return to the Dilapidated Gate in [[Misareaux Coast]] (I-11) and examine it to learn [[Trust: Ulmia]].
 +
**This requires completion of either [[Trust: Bastok]], [[Trust: San d'Oria]], or [[Trust: Windurst]].
 +
**'''You cannot obtain [[Trust: Ulmia]] if currently progressing in [[Storms of Fate]], from the point that the cutscene in [[Misareaux Coast]] occurs until you have defeated [[Bahamut]] in the quest battlefield.'''
 +
***These are the official conditions stated by Square-Enix. However, many people still find themselves unable to obtain the Trust spells even with these conditions met. In that case, complete [[Apocalypse Nigh]] and you are guaranteed to be able to receive both [[Trust: Prishe]] and [[Trust: Ulmia]].
 +
*[[Ulmia]] makes references to the following quests if you have completed them:
 +
**[[Apocalypse Nigh]]: "When I sang the Lay of the Immortals before the fifth crystal..."

  • Since Selh'teus cannot be healed by the party, just letting them do the fight will not work because if Selh'teus is defeated, the fight will be over.
  • In addition to this, if the entire party is K.O.'d at any point during the fight, they will be immediately removed from the battlefield. The game will not allow the usual 3 minutes for someone to get back up like it typically does in other battlefields. Thus at least one member has to be conscious at all times for the battle to go on.
  • Promathia has two forms. There is an opportunity to recover after beating the first form, but on both forms eventually Prishe will engage and start the fight on her own.
  • Promathia has low evasion.
  • Promathia is immune to the spell Stun, and either immune or extremely resistant to all Dark elemental spells such as Aspir. Head Butt also seems to do little-to nothing as far as stuns. I believe Promathia is just completely immune to the stun effect, except from Selh'teus.
  • Upon defeating Promathia's second form, every conscious party member (including those doing it for the first time) will receive 2000 Experience Points or Limit Points. The party will appear outside in Al'Taieu and receive the title: Averter of the Apocalypse

First form[edit]

  • Promathia's first form has about 8,000 HP. It uses the following special attacks:

Second form[edit]

  • Promathia's second form has about 12,000 HP. He still uses Empty Salvation, Pestilent Penance, Malevolent Blessing, Infernal Deliverance, plus some new attacks:
  • Seal of Quiescence: AoE Mute, lasts up to 75 seconds. It cannot be healed by things like Silena or Echo Drops, you must wait it out. As of July 2017, Echo Drops do work.
  • Winds of Oblivion: AoE Amnesia, lasts up to 75 seconds. It cannot be cured by Ecphoria Ring, you must wait it out.
  • Meteor (spell): AoE magic damage (300-600)
    • He casts this once a minute; it takes 10 seconds to cast, which is plenty of time to run out of range.
    • It should be noted that though he prefers Meteor he may still cast Comet in his second form.
  • You can tell which shield is up by looking at the big ring below Promathia. Red is physical, green is magic.
  • Prishe continues to fight beside you.
  • His Luminous Lance attack does a bit of damage and stuns Promathia for about 25 seconds.
  • His Revelation attack just does damage(?).
  • If he gets in trouble, he may use Rejuvenation and Redemption moves that give HP, MP, and TP to him and any party members that may be near him.
  • Selh'teus still cannot be cured.

Video[edit]

See the Video page.

After the battle you will be put in a cutscene. At the conclusion of this cutscene you will receive the Permanent Key Item Key ItemTear of Altana.

Finishing Up[edit]

Wait until after Japanese Midnight, to get the following cutscenes.

Bid farewell to some of your companions. You can visit them in any order.

Tenzen - Return to the East
Jabbos - Newfound Family
Louverance - A Name for the Ages
Chebukkis - A Meteoric Reunion
  • May require more than one attempt to receive the proper cutscene. Be sure your cutscene involves "a trio of wandering comedians."
  • If your inventory is full when you start the CS or you disconnect in the middle of it, just click the Warmachine again to get it.
  • The fastest method to get there is via Atmacite Refiner, but requires Hyacinth Stratum Abyssite II.
  • The following event-related RSE swimsuits have an enchantment that can teleport you to the isle:
  • Do note that retrieving an item with a reuse-timer from an Event Item Storer will result in a reset of the timer to its maximum amount. In other words, these can not be used before 20 hours has passed from retrieving it.
Shikarees - In the Name of Justice

The Chains Fall Free[edit]

After all the above cutscenes:

Ring Stats

Rajas Ring
STR+2~5 DEX+2~5
"Store TP+5" "Subtle Blow+5"
Lv.30 All Jobs

Sattva Ring
HP+15~30 VIT+2~5 AGI+2~5
Enmity+3
Lv.30 All Jobs

Tamas Ring
MP+15~30 INT+2~5 MND+2~5
Enmity-3
Lv.30 All Jobs
  • Recommendation: Rajas Ring is the only one that's still useful in modern gear sets due to Store TP+5.
  • If the ring is discarded, a new one can be obtained by revisiting the Marble Bridge.
    • If the ring is discarded on the day it was obtained, you must wait until after Japanese Midnight before the cutscene will play.
    • If the ring is discarded again, a wait of 27 days (Earth Time) is required before the rings will be available again.
    • If the ring is discarded a second time, the Marble Bridge door MUST be used to activate the timer.
  • Head to Tavnazian Safehold and examine the Walnut Door at (K-7) of the upper floor (North) for a cutscene.
  • Head to Lufaise Meadows and approach the Blueblade Fell at (J-6) for the final full-screen cutscene, during which the song Distant Worlds (Full Vocal) will play.
    • There are hordes of Rocs called Abraxas' above level 85+ on the way to the Fell, so some kind of a source for Invisibility is highly recommended.
    • Sneak is also recommended prior to viewing the cutscene, for a party of around level 80 fomor spawn at Blueblade Fell during nighttime.
    • As of the July 2016 update, you can now ride mounts in Lufaise Meadows, eliminating the need for Invisibility and Sneak, if you have a mount.
  • After the cutscene, the title Banisher of Emptiness will be awarded and the quest Storms of Fate becomes available.
