Last time, us bested Asch, however had to leaving him behind as he confronted down a hoard of Oracle Knights to defend our rear. Let"s press ever onward.

You are watching: Tales of the abyss god generals

Music: Crimson PrideI attached this music last update too, yet let me do so again. Native this point onward, this is the music because that the last dungeon, and I absolutely love it. Favourite dungeon template hands under in most likely the entire Tales series. It emphasizes the grandeur that Hod, pumps friend up, increases the tension, and also conveys a feeling of melancholy all at the same time. Or at least, i think so.
*
*
Up us go.Skit: Don"t look at Down: “Whoa, look at how much up we are... This is scary!”: “This absolutely is dangerous... Guy, is this also part of the replica Hod?”: “No, this is probably part of the framework supporting the replica. I don"t think it to be intended for human being to walk on...”: “But us probably have to gain through here to reach Van, right?”: “From where we entered, we don"t have actually much of a choice.”: “Then we will certainly just need to push on, also if we have to make a path ourselves.”
*
: “Hah hah! Yeah, exactly. Yet be careful... A solitary misstep could mean ours lives.”
*
: “Whoa!”: “The soil is... Gift born.”: “It seems the replication is quiet in progress.”
*
: “Hod... It"s as with when I witnessed Mary"s replica. I understand it"s a replica, yet the feelings simply come rushing out.”: “That"s a natural human emotion.”: “...Guy, space you okay?”: “...Yeah, I"m fine. I know my homeland resides on just in my memories now.”
*
Finally, the pillars take us down come the replica land proper.
*
And that is patrolled by part creepy enemies.
*
What stays of the Past
*
: “What is it, Guy?”
*
*
*
: “It really is... It"s the stays of mine manor.”: “Whaaaat?! Really?!”: “This is a replica the Hod, I intend it shouldn"t be surprising...”
*
: “Would you fairly not fight grasp Van?”: “It"s not that. I never thought I"d be able to come back. It"s a strange feeling.”: “Yes. This is the an initial time I"ve ever been to mine homeland.”: “I can"t carry myself to hate fomicry. I think it might actually perform some wonderful things.”: “That applies to everything. Any tool have the right to be used for exorbitant or foolish things.”
*
: “Luke... Yeah, i think so, too. I think possibly Yulia didn"t typical for the civilization to monitor the Score exactly.”: “But Yulia hid the seventh Fonstone which has actually the Score of damage written top top it.”: “People can"t continue to be calm when challenged with a Score foretelling their death...”: “Yulia wanted united state to overturn the Score...?”
*
: “What?”: “I just remembered the an initial time I ever learned fonic hymns from Van. The said, "Yulia wished for human being to overturn the Score."”: “"Yulia loved the world. The fonic hymns room the pact the Yulia readily available out of that love..."”: “Van to be trying to accomplish Yulia"s will by rebuilding the world...”: “But Lorelei doesn"t give of Van"s intent. That"s why it"s continued to be dormant in ~ him.”: “I see... If the fonic hymns room the prize of the trust between Yulia and also Lorelei, then the melody the the fonic hymns may awaken Lorelei.”: “Van was managing Lorelei by force. But if Lorelei were to awaken, even Van would must concentrate ~ above Lorelei to protect against neural contamination.”
*
: “Leaving him vulnerable... The might likewise lose the ability to usage Lorelei"s power.”
*
*
: “Yeah, Tear! If the fonic hymns awaken Lorelei, we can use the an essential to complimentary it.”: “But, i wonder if i can... I simply now mental the saturday one. I"m not sure if I have the melody, feelings, and also lyrics correct...”: “You"ve remembered all the various other ones effectively so far. Don"t worry. I understand you have the right to sing it.”
*
And v that, Tear has actually learned the saturday Hymn. Note but that we don"t actually get it for usage in fight like the others. Still, it"s a nice minute wrapped in an interesting revelation. Skit: The last Fonic Hymn: “I"m happy you remembered the saturday Fonic Hymn.”: “Yes... Ns can"t think I ever before forgot it.”: “Van would constantly sing it to me... Together a lullaby...”: “Now you"ll have the ability to sing the grand Fonic Hymn.”: “Together v the vital of Lorelei, we deserve to awaken Lorelei.”: “I will awaken Lorelei v the cool Fonic Hymn.”: “And i will attract Lorelei from grasp Van right into the Sword.”
*
: “Right! Then maybe we deserve to fight evenly through him.”: “Even so, we"ll have to be careful. The is Van, ~ all.”: “Yeah, i know. I know Master Van"s strength better than anyone.”: “Luke... Let"s free Lorelei. Together.”: “Yeah.”
*
Let"s go!Broken Half
*
: ...Heh, i didn"t expect it to pertained to this.
*
: “You"re the last!”
*
: “Can friend hear me, replica...?”
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
: “Heh... Looks like I had... A small trouble...”
*
: “The remainder is... As much as you.”
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
: …
*
*
: “Look out! It"s a trap!”: “Natalia, we have to run!”: “I... I...”
*
: “Natalia!”
*
: “Grr... Us won"t make it!”: “Damn it, not choose this!”: Asch! aid me!
*
*
: “Hyperresonance... No, second-order hyperresonance? Impossible!”: “What was that power?”: “I-I don"t know... Yet the minute I thought around Asch, miscellaneous in me just... It to be like when I damaged Akzeriuth...”
*
: “A second-order hyperresonance... You"ve got to it is in joking.”
*
*
*
: “Sync!”: “Even with Yulia"s magnificent protection, power like that can harm Van. You have two choices. Hand end the key and join Van, or die.”: “I pick neither! I"m freeing Lorelei. And also to execute that, I will certainly defeat grasp Van... And you.”: “Sync, you"re a replica, similar to Ion! Why room you help a project prefer this?!”: “I"m not choose him. You know that. Ion.. The saturday Ion to be a naïve child. He believed the Score was simply one feasible choice of futures. However in the end, he couldn"t oppose the Score. Fon master Ion will certainly die, the was the planet"s memory. Her Ion passed away like a dog.”
*
: “No, it"s the truth. But Van"s plan will damage Lorelei itself, and with that the saturday Fonon. The Score will truly vanish.”: “Do friend really hate the Score that much?”: “I was born since the Score dictated the Fon grasp Ion would certainly die. You already know that i was thrown far once.”: “That"s why you dislike the Score? because you to be thrown away?”
*
: “If the Score hadn"t existed, i wouldn"t have actually been stuck to this pathetic life!”: “...Are you saying you"ve obtained nothing because you to be born?”: “Not a thing. I"m empty. However it doesn"t matter. I don"t treatment who the was, as long as they would erase the Score – the saturday Fonon!”
*
*
: “Let"s test it. You, or the north me. Let"s check out which next this people wants to survive.”Boss Battle: Sync
*
*
: “So, exactly how is that fighting someone who looks as with Ion?”: "Shut up! You"re nothing compared to him!" : "You could look the same however you room not Ion!" : "You didn"t want to live on together the Fon Master"s replacement, walk you?" : "Haha...Are girlfriend trying come tell me that ns am who I am? ns told you, ns am nothing! mine existence method nothing!": "Sync, that"s not true! friend don"t really think that, do you?" : "For someone that thinks they median nothing, girlfriend sure choose to fight for your life." : "You have to be a little an ext honest with yourself before you die." : "You"ll not adjust me! ns stand resolved! I"m exhausted of this world! Everyone have the right to die together with it!"
*
Sync is, as he was before, no an adversary to be messed with. He"s fast as hell, hits as tough as Largo top top a an excellent day, and also can cast some deadly artes. I"m sticking with the basic format and maining guy for this one. Yeah man isn"t really Sync"s foil, but fuck it, I have actually to show this off sometime, don"t I?
*
Luckily, Sync provides me a really early chance to display off why that shouldn"t mess v us.
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
: ”Never fight a battle you can"t win.”
*
Yeah. Brilliant Overlord
is Guy"s second mystic arte, and it"s a doozy. Guy charges up, and also unleashes a barrage that shockwave slices. Then since that"s not enough, the charges up harder and unleashes a quicker barrage of shockwave slices. The accumulated energy pools approximately his opponent, exploding for even much more damage as soon as he sheaths his sword. It"s quite cool.Like the others, brilliant Overlord has a laundry list of requirements. Brand-new Game Plus. Must have actually the Jewel the Gardios equipped. Must have actually used final Cross at least 200 times. Additionally, Guy has to be below 10% that his health, i beg your pardon is indicated by his health number transforming red. Likewise Brilliant overlord cannot be part of a combo: last cross has to be used in overlimit as the an initial move.Yeah, 5 fucking requirements that all have to be met for male to pull this off. Somebody thought this to be a good idea, and also somebody requirements to it is in shot.
*
Even with guy in his perfected state, Sync is a damn hard fight. Once he"s not casting high level artes into my healers, he"s interrupting my combos through a gut punch followed by an arcane arte that drains for half my health, minimum.
*
Of course, every time ns fight among these, my list of easily accessible mystic artes walk up.
*
*
*
Sync additionally has his full selection of mystic artes to bring to bear. Also note his harrowing gale mystic arte gut in, which reflects him rocking a pretty sweet tattoo. Go he get that himself, or carry out all the Ion"s have that? since now I"m just imagining ours Ion with tattoos, and the image doesn"t fit.
*
*
Anyway, you know how this song and also dance go by now. I freerun about a lot and lay into him as soon as he"s got his safety down. Life party a plenty. This video clip was means shorter 보다 the Legretta one (only about four minutes) but that"s since I didn"t dick around with Tear the one damage wonder.A last Farewell
*
*
*
Again, if girlfriend look carefully you"re an alert that they"ve produced an entirely brand-new model simply to present Sync v his shirt every tattered. Ns don"t understand if this was claimed to happen in the battle as he take it damage, yet it doesn"t. That is a quite touch though, especially because he"s only on the display screen for possibly 5 seconds prior to vanishing.
*
: “Don"t let them acquire to you. We"re doing the same for ours. Right?”: “Yeah... Asch, too...”
*
: “Natalia... I"m sorry. If I"d continued to be with him...”: …
*
*
: “Ow! What was the for?!”: “Your actions have actually been a nuisance to united state all... And to Asch.”: “To Asch...?”: “Asch battled so Luke might kill Van, also if that wasn"t his original intention. What you did interfered through that.”: “...I"m sorry.”: “You"re cost-free to care about Asch, yet you must not forget what you came below to do.”: “Yes... You"re right. I"m truly sorry. I"m no the just one who"s suffering. Anise and Guy both lost world dear to them. And Tear must...”: “Exactly.”
*
*
: “Jade, you called that a second-order hyperresonance, right?”Guy has this good moment where everybody is all silent after Jade lays into Natalia, and he awkwardly rubs his head trying come think of miscellaneous to rest the silence. That doesn"t convey well in screenshot, yet I love it.
*
: “Yes, yet the theory behind second-order hyperresonance hasn"t however been established. It"s stated that once two hyperresonances interact, lock neutralize the impacts of every fonons.”: “...I don"t understand what this strength is. Yet if it is second-order hyperresonance, climate it to be Asch who provided it to me, right? He and I are the only ones who can cause a hyperresonance.”: “Yes. Asch is within you. Asch welcomed you and gave girlfriend his power.”: “...Yeah. I"ve gained to placed up a hit worthy the him. Guys, lend me her strength.”
*
I think this minute is an alleged to be symbolic, however instead I constantly read it together Luke having been fiddling v the point ever since he got it, and also just established how to acquire the Jewel in there.
*
At any rate, we have even more reason to press on now. Godspeed Asch, we won"t let your sacrifice go to waste. Skit: Sync, you idiot...: …..
*
: “Anise...”: “Tear? Wh-what? friend don"t have to look for this reason worried. I"m doing fine... Simply fine...”: “Anise... It"s okay.”: “...Sync... Girlfriend idiot... Looking as with Ion... Sounding similar to him... Yet being so twisted...”: …..: “I dislike you! i didn"t desire to view Ion die anymore! friend went on about being so lonely and also empty... And then you went and also died...!”: “It"s okay Anise... You can cry.”: “...Sync, girlfriend idiot!!”Skit: Asch: “Asch... How could you die like that...? ns just... Never thought girlfriend would... Die.”: “Asch... I wish I could have seen you one much more time...”: “Yeah, the remainder of us never did watch him on Eldrant.”: “Luke. I know this is a painful question, but... Just how did Asch die?”: “...Surrounded by Oracle soldiers, through swords thrust v his body...”: “...Asch!”: “Did you feel anything after that?”: “...Now that you point out it... There was a feeling like something warm falling top top me...”: “...Did you feeling anything leave you?”: “Huh? Well, once Asch died I felt a tiny weak, yet other 보다 that...”: “I see...”: “What was that about, Jade?”
*
: “...Nothing... Nothing in ~ all...”Have associated the dots yet?
*
This is the final area of this dungeon: Hod Castle. It"s very short – just 3 rooms – uneven you want to carry out the optional sidequest. Also then despite it"s fairly brief. I"ll run v it.
*
Shooting a adjacent gem v Mieu fire will net you this baby. The Grandioz is the ideal capacity core in the game, impede one that have the right to be stolen from a certain super secret boss we haven"t battled yet. This will come in handy really soon.
*
This right here is the crux that the puzzle we"ll be solving. It calls for every Mieu update to pull off correct. Still, there"s part prep work.
*
In the second room room these pillars v ladders top top them. Mieu assault them all to the ground.
*
Now here"s wherein things gain weird. Watch that fonstone in the top right? If we usage a fonstone that opposite element (in this situation light, due to the fact that it"s a dark fonstone) that will rotate the room. How do we gain those fonstones?From the enemies in the room, however not like you"d think. If you defeat the adversaries with the last blow being a light based fonic arte, you gain a irradiate fonstone. If you loss them through a dark arte, you acquire a dark fonstone. Wherein does that tell friend this? Nowhere!
*
we grab among each.This rotates the room, and additionally the various other two rooms.
*
With the room rotated, we deserve to use the ladder pillars us flipped previously to with this section and also hit a switch through Mieu Wing, opening another door.
*
The door takes us to the top fifty percent of the fonstone. Utilizing a dark rock here, we flip the room in the other direction.
*
In the an initial room, we can go over and move these two reflector panels to face one another. Why?
*
That"s why. Check out them end there on the wall? That"s wherein we simply were. Currently we deserve to shoot Mieu Fire 2 in ~ them, which will certainly reflect that up into the switches.
*
That"s no enough, though. Both switches room tripped. To complete this puzzle, you have to use mieu wing to block the fire before it access time the second switch.

All the to open a door. Expect it"s worth it.

Resting Place

*
: “It"s beautiful...”: “It shows up to it is in someone"s grave.”: “Whose?”: “Yulia"s.”
*
: “Van carried me right here once together a kid. He told me the Fende family members had secretly defended Yulia"s grave for generations.”: “Then Yulia passed away in Hod?”: “I never knew... That"s...”: “But who"s to be taking care of every this? these flowers and everything?”: “Yes, it definitely has been maintained well.”
*
: “But he no the Score, doesn"t he? Wouldn"t he dislike Yulia, too?”: “Perhaps. Maybe not.”: “Van teach me Yulia"s fonic hymns. He claimed we to be to command the people as Yulia"s descendants... Ns doubt that would have actually done the if that hated Yulia.”: “More 보다 the Score itself, Van may hate the masses that blindly follow it.”: “...Perhaps.”: “I don"t know what understand Van thinks of Yulia, yet he and also Tear space both she descendants, right? That"s much more than sufficient reason to sell her flowers.”
*
Skit: Yulia"s Thoughts and also Feelings: “I wonder what Yulia thinks of this situation...”: “She"s more than likely grieving... Or in ~ least, i hope she is.”: “I sure don"t desire to imagine Yulia taking Van"s side.”: “Don"t worry. Lorelei isn"t cooperating with master Van, and Yulia made a pact with Lorelei. I"m sure she wouldn"t do anything to upset Lorelei.”: “Yeah. Yulia, you re welcome lend united state your strength...”
*
: “Please...”I"m type of mad they hid this sequence behind a puzzle through so many obscure mechanics and extraneous requirements. It"s a touching tiny scene that also goes a long means to really fleshing out just how facility of a personality Van yes, really is. At any kind of rate, we"ll pause below for now. We"ve usually bumped up against the end point of the plot, yet we have about two updates precious of sidequests to wrap up. We"ll try to acquire on that fast.Next Time:
Catalyst that PowerSynopsis:As us proceeded v Eldrant trying to find Master Van, we came acrossthe previous mansion of counting Gardios. We began talking around the Score, andall of a sudden Tear recalled the seventh Fonic Hymn, which she had neverbeen able to remember before. She said grasp Van had sung it to her as alullaby when she was little. She tho doesn"t understand its meaning orsymbolism well enough to usage it together a real fonic hymn. But now the she"sremembered it, she"s may be to use the grand Fonic Hymn, which can reawakenLorelei within understand Van"s body. We"ve gained a brand-new weapon for our battle. This should provide us anotheradvantage in fighting master Van. Let"s hurry and find him. Further on, i suddenly acquired the headache the comes v Asch"s channel,and I saw Asch--no, I observed the civilization through Asch"s eyes. Asch"s body was extended with injuries indigenous fighting the Oracle soldiers,and however he kept on battling. And just as it looked like he had taken treatment ofthem all, he tranquil for one instant, and in that immediate an Oracle soldierran him v with a sword. Also so, Asch pulled together the last of hisstrength, defeated the soldier, and also called to me... "The remainder is as much as you."Then ns felt miscellaneous warm flow into me. It to be Asch...the exact same feeling ns hadwhen we lowered the external Lands, when we neutralized the miasma. So ns knewexactly what had actually happened. Asch had actually died... Natalia to be immobilized through the shock. And also with the worst timing, we werecaught in a fonic trap, and also were around to be destroyed by it. That instant, ns felt power circulation out that me, and it neutralized the trap. The strength I used, the power Asch probably gave me, is called "second-orderhyperresonance." Sync appeared before us and called that that. Sync assaulted us, cursing his own birth. He had actually joined master Van come helpdestroy the Score which had actually led to his gift born. We beat Sync. To be he really empty, choose he said? Or did he merely think he wanted to beempty? we can"t ask the anymore, yet I great I might have heard his answer. Jade scolded Natalia because that succumbing come shock in ~ Asch"s death, and also shefinally realized just exactly how dangerous she actions had actually been. And also she claimed to methat Asch was inside me. Also though she can have stated that I have to havedied instead, and also I wouldn"t have actually been able come respond... I"m sorry, Natalia.
