Tips and Strategies

This is a list of important things to do in the quest The Hand of the King. Read on to find out which of them is crucial to proceeding.

  • Ignis suffered injuries to his eye during the last battle. It would be good for the party to proceed at a slower pace
  • However, being blind doesn't hamper him at the slightest, as the battle with the Malboro introduces a new, better Libra attack. Use it in future battles.
  • Proceeding at a slower pace also makes sure that Noct has all the help he can get against enemies.

      Hi! Thank you for your question :)
      Noctis needs to sneak behind the Black Chocobo until Ignis distracts it. The player should keep the chocobo inside his field of view to see if it is looking around, if so, Noctis needs to duck (hold square). Keep on doing this while also moving towards the chocobo until Ignis distracts it. While it is distracted, pick up the glasses then run away before the timer ends.
