Quest information

  • Speak with Guardsman Qao Lin when you are ready for combat.
  • Position the Imperial Guards in defensive positions. There is only a short time before they reach the gates!
  • Do not allow the gangs to breach the gate to the palace.
  • Defeat the attacking gangs.
  • Defeat Reisen the Phoenix and Apep, Unending Night
  • See Guardsman Qao Lin for your reward.

Reward

Walkthrough

You can talk to the guards to have them follow you. Talk to them again to have them wait at a suitable position.

Soon, the Main Gate will be broken. Defeat all incoming attackers. After a while, the Dock Gate is breached as well. With attackers from both sides, you can either split your forces or take a stand near the Palace Gate.

Note that the Palace Gate cannot be healed or otherwise repaired. Be sure to intercept your foes early.

If your party wipes, you will be resurrected at the Palace Gate.

When Reisen the Phoenix arrives, it is recommended to target him first since he has very high damage.
