Guide: Book of Netherfall I Completion


1. Enemies 
You have to kill 10 enemies of each kind listed below (that makes a total of 100 foes).

Gigas Sozu
Location: Mor Dhona - North Silvertear
There are only a couple of them lurking around, but I was really lucky because I stumbled into a FATE called "Among Giants". Everytime I finished both Sozu that spawned during the FATE, two new ones appeared.

5th Cohort Laquearius
Location:  Mor Dhona - The Fogfens
I found a total of 4 - two are outside and two are inside the last two rooms of the fortress! Lazyness won, so I just camped outside and waited for their respawn.

Snow Wolf
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands - Boulder Downs
Those wolves are a bit scattered, but there are a lot of them around the following location:

Violet Screech
Location: East Shroud - The Sylphlands
And again - such a looooong way! I found a couple of them on the following locations:

Lesser Kalong
Location: South Shroud - Urth's Gift
Those are easy to find. You'll find a lot of them just at the entrance of the small cave that leads to Urth's Gift.

Ixali Windtalon
Location: North Shroud - Proud Creek
Luckily there are tonns of them around the shown location, so you'll get your 10 kills pretty easy and fast!

4h Cohort Secutor
Location: Western Thanalan - Cape Westwind
A couple of them are hanging out in Cape Westwind. Be sure to check behind every gate! I found their respawn time quite long, tough...

Amalj'aa Brigands
Location: Southern Thanalan - Zanr'ak
Two of them are guiding the gates to Zahar'ak. I don't know if there are more of them - I just waited their respawn.

Sapsa Shelfclaws
Location: Western La Noscea - Halfstone
I only found 3 of them, but their respawn time isn't too bad at all! Just circle between their 3 positions and you'll be fine!

U'Ghamaro Priest
Location: Outer La Noscea - U'Ghamaro Mines
I found a room that spawns two of the Priests and one room nearby which spawns another Priest, so I just went to get my kills here.


2. Dungeons 
You have to complete the following 3 dungeons in order to complete this category:
  • Cutter's Cry
  • Pharos Sirius
  • The Lost City of Amdapor
You'll need to equip your Atma weapon while killing the last boss!



3. FATEs 
Your next task is to complete 3 special FATEs. I recommend to camp at the shown location or at least close to it, because you will have to get a gold medal in order to get it done - and this can be rather difficult if you have to run to the spot first.

Rude Awakening
Location: North Shroud
This FATE is a boss, but he is pretty easy to kite around and he doesn't really do much damage as well, so you should be able to solo him.

The Ceruleum Road
Location: Northern Thanalan
This FATE spawns right outside of Camp Bluefog. You need to defend an NPC which is making his way to Ceruleum Processing Plant. If he dies, the FATE fails, so better be careful! He also talks a lot...


The Four Winds
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands
This FATE offers four smaller bosses... they all need to be killed in order to complete it. Better get a friend to help, it might be hard to solo it before the time runs out.


4. Leves
Now there is only one category left: Levequests! You have to do 3 special Leves, so be sure to have enough allowances ready. In case you don't find the right Levequest at the NPC, you will have to initiate other Leves before and hope that they will spawn after. Or else: Try to come back another time (which actually worked better for me).

Subduing the Subprime
Location: Northern Thanalan - Camp Bluefog
Talk to Rurubana <Levemete>, who is located in Camp Bluefog, and choose Battlecraft Leves. After initiating it, you'll just need to kill a couple of monsters.

Who Writes History
Location: Mor Dhona - Saint Coinach’s Find
Talk to Eidhart <Flame Sergeant> in Mor Dhona and select Immortal Flames Leves. After initiating the leve, a rather weak boss will appear. It will spawn some adds, but just burst him down and ignore his little friends.

Got a Gut Feeling about This
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands - Whitebrim Front
Talk to Voilinaut <Levemete> in Whitebrim Front and select this Leve. After you initiated it, you'll need to slay the normal mobs lurking around first in order to obtain key items. You can use those items on the prime locations - that will spawn other mobs. Your goal is to lure out two Stegotaurs.



Congratulations, the Book of Netherfall I is now complete!

Guide: Book of Skyfall II Completion


1. Enemies 
You have to kill 10 enemies of each kind listed below (that makes a total of 100 foes).

Gigas Bhikkhu
Location: Mor Dhona - North Silvertear
I really have no idea if there are more of them, but I only found 3 of them spawning in the cave you'll see on my screenshot. This is the entrance to Crystal Tower in case you can't find it! Well, at least they are close to each other!

5th Cohort Hoplomachus
Location:  Mor Dhona - The Fogfens
I only noticed 3 of them camping in front of their base. I didn't find any in the fortress itself - they might just have been killed though. I just slacked and waited for their respawn!

Natalan Watchwolf
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands - Natalan
The wolves are inside of the "fortress" and there are plenty of them. You might have to kill other mobs to reach them though!

Sylph Bonnet
Location: East Shroud - The Sylphlands
Those mushrooms are really easy to find, because they are literally everywhere!

Ked
Location: South Shroud - Urth's Gift
Keds are easy to find as well, there are tonns of them at the following location:

4th Cohort Laquearus
Location: Western Thanalan - Cape Westwind
There are 4 of them in Cape Westwind, but they respawn relatively fast.

Iron Tortoise
Location: Southern Thanalan - Zanr'ak
Don't mistake those for Bronze Tortoise. The Iron ones are a bit ore rare and a bit further south than the Bronze ones. If you are lucky - like me - you can bump into a FATE named "Full of Rigormortis" which spawns tonns of them.

Shelfeye Reaver
Location: Western La Noscea - Halfstone
I only found a total of 4 of them, but the respawn time is not that awful to be honest! They can become part of a FATE too, but even there they'll respawn.

Sapsa Shelfscales
Location: Western La Noscea - Sapsa Spawning Grounds
Maybe I was blind, but I only found a total of 3 of them... So it took me quite a while to get all the kills done!

U'Ghamaro Bedesman
Location: Outer La Noscea - U'Ghamaro Mines
I really hate the U'Ghamaro Mines... did I ever say that? Anyway, those aren't too hard to find, just run around a bit. One is directly close to the entrance.


2. Dungeons 
You have to complete the following 3 dungeons in order to complete this category:
  • The Thousand Maws of Toto-Rak
  • Amdapor Keep
  • Haukke Manor (Hard)
You'll need to equip your Atma weapon while killing the last boss!



3. FATEs 
Your next task is to complete 3 special FATEs. I recommend to camp at the shown location or at least close to it, because you will have to get a gold medal in order to get it done - and this can be rather difficult if you have to run to the spot first.

Black and Nburu
Location: Mor Dhona
Here you will need to kill a boss (Nburu). It is so hard to solo this one, specially because it hits from range and it has tonns and tonns of HP. Bring a friend to make sure that you get him down in time.

Breaching North Tidegate
Location: Western La Noscea
This FATE is a follow up by some other FATEs and includes a strong boss at the end. I was lucky that I had some people around who helped me to kill it - not sure if he is soloable, as he is quite fast.

Breaking Dawn
Location: East Shroud
This FATE is really far, and it seems to not spawn that often. Yet again - another boss, but I don't know if he is hard or not, because there were many people waiting for this FATE to pop - he went down in less than 30 seconds.


4. Leves
Now there is only one category left: Levequests! You have to do 3 special Leves, so be sure to have enough allowances ready. In case you don't find the right Levequest at the NPC, you will have to initiate other Leves before and hope that they will spawn after. Or else: Try to come back another time (which actually worked better for me).

Someone's in the Doghouse
Location: Northern Thanalan - Camp Bluefog
Talk to Rurubana <Levemete>, who is located in Camp Bluefog, and choose Battlecraft Leves. This leve is kinda annoying. You need to spam the /beckon emote at the wolf that will spawn and lead it safely behind the gates of the city. Monsters spawn, and if your wolf dies, the levequest fails. I highly recommend you to immediately take aggro on all the mobs and lure them far away from the wolf. His HP drops quite fast, but there is one good side: it heals up completely after all mobs have been slain.

Get Off Our Lake
Location: Mor Dhona - Saint Coinach’s Find
Talk to Eidhart <Flame Sergeant> in Mor Dhona and select The Order of the Twin Adder Leves. After initiating the leve you will have to defeat three different kinds of Cohort soldiers. After that you can kill more mobs or go afk and wait till the time is over!

The Area's a Bit Sketchy
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands - Whitebrim Front
Talk to Voilinaut <Levemete> in Whitebrim Front and select this Leve. After you initiated it, you'll need to secure 4 different locations by defeating the enemies that spawn if you get closer to the destination point.



Congratulations, the Book of Skyfall II is now complete!

Guide: Book of Skyfall I Completion


1. Enemies 
You have to kill 10 enemies of each kind listed below (that makes a total of 100 foes).

Lake Cobra
Location: Mor Dhona - North Silvertear
There are tonns and tonns of them spawning at the following point:

Mudpuppy
Location:  Mor Dhona - The Fogfens
Some are located around the area you'll see on the picture below. They aren't hard to find, so it is easy to finish your 10 kills!

Giant Reader
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands - Boulder Downs
I didn't find too many of them around the shown location, so I just camped one spot where I was sure the mob would spawn.

Sylphlands Sentinel
Location: East Shroud - The Sylphlands
Those are really far from the Aetheryte! Head all the way to the north. You can find those giant trees on the following two locations:

Amalj'aa Lancer
Location: Southern Thanalan - Zanr'ak
Teleport to Little Ala Mhigo and head to the south. They aren't too hard to find, just run around a bit! Those monsters can also spawn in a level 24 FATE in Eastern Thanalan, but I sadly forgot the name!

Magitek Vanguard
Location: Northern Thanalan - Raubahn's Push
Teleport to Ceruleum Processing Plant and head to the north. There are tonns of those Magiteks Vanguards around the shown location.

Shelfscale Sahagin
Location: Western La Noscea - Halfstone
There are a couple of them standing around in Halfstone. You should check out both sides to get al 10 kills quickly.

Sea Wasp
Location: Western La Noscea - Halfstone
On the following location are a total of 7 wasps and their respawn time is not that long, so this should be an easy task as well!

2nd Cohort Eques
Location: Eastern La Noscea - The Agelyss Wise
Teleport to Wineport and visit the shown location (see picture). 2 of them are outside at the entrance, 2 are in the first room. I just camped those two locations. The respawn time isn't too bad at all.

U'Ghamaro Quarryman
Location: Outer La Noscea - U'Ghamaro Mines
Compared to other mobs in the U'Ghamaro Mines there are rather a lot of those mobs and they also respawn quite fast!


2. Dungeons 
You have to complete the following 3 dungeons in order to complete this category:
  • Coppernell Mines
  • Dzemael Darkhold
  • Brayflox Longstop (Hard)
You'll need to equip your Atma weapon while killing the last boss!



3. FATEs 
Your next task is to complete 3 special FATEs. I recommend to camp at the shown location or at least close to it, because you will have to get a gold medal in order to get it done - and this can be rather difficult if you have to run to the spot first.

Bellyfull
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands
This boss is the typical Coerthas FATE farming boss that spawns pretty often. He is easily soloable, but there will be most likely others coming to help, so don't worry about being alone.

The King's Justice
Location: Western La Noscea
To reach this FATE you need to head to Aleport, then talk to the Ferry Skipper and tell him that you want to visit the Isles of Umbra. You will need to kill a boss called Mantis King. He is soloable, I killed him with my Bard, but he is quite fast so he will land some hits on you. Make sure you got some pots or at least a self heal with you!

Quartz Coupling
Location: Eastern Thanalan
This FATE seems to spawn every hour - I missed it twice and it always respawned after like 50 or 60 minutes. It is easy to solo, because you just need to kill some trash mobs around!


4. Leves
Now there is only one category left: Levequests! You have to do 3 special Leves, so be sure to have enough allowances ready. In case you don't find the right Levequest at the NPC, you will have to initiate other Leves before and hope that they will spawn after. Or else: Try to come back another time (which actually worked better for me).

Circling the Ceruleum
Location: Northern Thanalan - Camp Bluefog
Talk to Rurubana <Levemete>, who is located in Camp Bluefog, and choose Battlecraft Leves. From there, simply initiate this Leve and secure the 4 locations.

Go Home to Mama
Location: Mor Dhona - Saint Coinach’s Find
Talk to Eidhart <Flame Sergeant> in Mor Dhona and select Maelstrom Leves. You will need to defend some Airship Wreckage from getting stolen by enemies. A total of 6 enemies will spawn - the last one is a bit stronger than the other 5.

Whispers of the Gem
Location: Coerthas Central Highlands - Whitebrim Front
Talk to Voilinaut <Levemete> in Whitebrim Front and select this Leve. After you initiated it, you'll need to kill a couple of monsters to obtain soiled Necrologos pages. After that, an easy "boss" will spawn.



Congratulations, the Book of Skyfall I is now complete!
