Type Description
Main Quest

Clive enters the crystal mines of Drake's Fang without encountering a single republican guard — or at least, none that has survived the incursion of orcs ferried over from Waloed, who have slain and sated their hunger for flesh upon the nation's erstwhile allies. Clive sticks to the shadows as he presses on to Castle Dazbog in pursuit of Hugo Kupka.

Into the Darkness: Walkthrough

Into the Darkness begins immediately after you fast travel to Drake's Fang at the end of the last quest.

Go forward and you'll almost immediately be up against some enemy orcs. Fend them off, then crawl through the gap. Ahead are more orcs to fight.

Continue through the door and fight more enemies. Squeeze through another door and there are even more orcs to fight. When you're done, open the next door and continue.

Through the next door, go up the stairs and defeat the enemies at the top. Open yet another door, and it's time to fight a mini boss — Orcish Warlord.

Orcish Warlord Spoils:

  • 3x Meteorite
  • 200 EXP
  • 60 Ability Points
  • 1,500 gil

Next, pull the lever to open the large door. Watch the cutscene. Approach the castle, making sure to pick up the items on the way. Open the gate and watch the cutscene. It's boss fight time, and you're up against Undertaker.

Undertaker Spoils:

  • 1x The Favor of Lightning (Thunderstorm)
  • 18x Sharp Fang
  • 18x Magicked Ash
  • 350 EXP
  • 170 Ability Points
  • 3,000 gil

After the fight, watch the next cutscene. Head up the stairs and fight the enemies, then proceed through the doors. A group of enemies awaits you — defeat them, then go through the door on the right. Another pack of enemies is waiting to be slain up the stairs.

Go down the hallway and open the large doors on the right. Watch the cutscene. Open the left-hand door and go down the stairs. Open the large doors at the bottom and walk towards the inner sanctum. Some more enemies guard the entrance. Once they're done, open the doors and watch the cutscene.
