With all the tablets in your possession, go to the altar in Ograne Grottos and place them accordingly. This will open a portal to Gaemdriel’s realm, where you’ll finally confront the God King.
Step 2: Assembling Your Party

- Glenn: Bring him for his All Break skill, which buffs your team and protects Egyl on the front line.
- Mikah: A DPS with Larynx Attack to silence Gaemdriel during the Mind phase, reducing his damage output.
- Robb: Use him to lower Gaemdriel’s silence resistance with Throat Smack, allowing Mikah to keep him silenced.
- Lenne: A high DPS character, she can dispel Gaemdriel’s Regeneration buff for smoother phase transitions.
- Amalia: Your healer, equipped with sufficient Mind resistance to survive the Mind Phase and keep the party alive.
