FFXV The Imperial Capital Walkthrough

List of Objectives
1 Continue towards finding the entrance to Zegnautus Keep, leaving the out-of-commission Regalia behind.
2 A train cabin will fall and Ignis and Gladio will get separated, leaving Noct to fend for himself alone.
3 Run all the way to the marker, avoiding Lv30 Snagas along the way.
4 With no other choice, Noct chooses to wear the Ring of the Lucii, which gives him offensive skillsets.

Tips and Strategies

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

  • The Ring of the Lucii lets Noct use skills that are essentially Holy, Banish, and Drain/Death. Use these when the situation calls for it.
  • When without the ring, use the lunge-forward skill (square button) to continue to avoid the Snagas.
  • Don't stop for anything! Without weapons, getting cornered by daemons proves fatal.

      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.
