This is a walkthrough for the third area of Future Connected, the epilogue of Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition for Nintendo Switch. For a map of the area, as well as boss strategy and other tips and tricks, read on!
List of Contents
|1||Skip travel to the Skybridge landmark and pay Teelan a visit in his laboratory. Keep in mind for Rioting monsters and Fogbeast surges while exploring the map.|
|2||After the scene you will fight Gael'gar and his two Agressor Andos.|
|3||After the fight you will be back in Gran Dell with your next objective to ask the people about High Ether Crystals. Follow the quest marker and speak with the Gran Dell Militia near the entrance.|
|4||Skip travel to the Gran Dell Ramparts landmark and speak to the High Entian on top of the wall. There is also a Giants' Trove behind him if you didn't get it already.|
|5||Next head to Heroes's Rest, west of the Prayer Rock landmark, and speak to Sarja.|
|6||Skip travel back to the Grand Arch landmark and speak with Radzam. Your next goal is to make your way to Zekr Marga Quarry.|
|1||Start by skip travelling to Thulles Way if you haven't already explored the northern parts of the Shoulder.|
|2||Head straight north to enter Fyme Lane and continue along the path, passing the Scapular Lance landmark.|
|3||Keep going until you reach Gamaro Hollow. Continue west into the Forbidden Hushlands.
If you haven't completed Nonona's quest yet,a quick north from Gamaro Hollow will take you to the Old Expedition HQ landmark.You will find Nonona here. Complete his quest to obtain a Ponspector.
|4||Beware of strong and Rioting enemies in this area as you make your way to the quarry. Once you arrive you'll unlock the Quarry Colonnade landmark and be ready to head inside.|
|1||The quarry is filled with spiders that will aggro to sound, so unless you're looking for a fight, carefully walk around them as you make your way to the High Ether Deposit, the large crystal deep inside.|
|2||You can either take the far left path around the Arachno Queen or take her on directly and go straight through the middle, though this is more dangerous if you are unprepared.
If you do in fact choose to take on the Arachno Queen, beware that you will be aggroing another 5 enemies. Take advantage of Union Strikes for massive damage to all enemies.
|3||Whichever path you take, head up the stairs on the right to find the High Ether Crystal. Return to Radzam to upgrade Shulk's Monado.|
|4||You will be interrupted by the invasion of Fogbeasts in Gran Dell. Head to Gran Dell Ramparts for a boss fight.|
|5||With the boss out of the way, your next destination is Companions' Cape. Skip travel there at once for a boss fight with the Antol King.|
|6||Skip travel back to Gran Dell Ramparts once again for a cutscene. You will fight yet another boss, a Deinos Sauros.|
|7||Watch the cutscene and you will receive the upgraded Monado, closing out this part.|

By part 3, you will have access to all 12 Ponspectors, so if you haven't been doing their quests do them now! They provide invaluable assistance in battle, especially in a pinch.
Gael'gar is level 70 and will be joined by a level 68 Aggressor Andos and level 68 Defender Andos that can inflict a series of debuffs. Take care of them first to ensure they don't interfer with the real fight.
When your party gauge is maxed out go for a Uninon Strike to inflict massive damage to all enemies on the field. Yellow Chaos is recommended for its ability to Daze all enemies and inflict Strength Down, reducing the damage they can do to you. Take advantage of the Daze status to get as many abilities in as possible.
If you are properly leveled this fight should pose little difficulty.
This triceratops Fogbeast is level 71 so make sure you've levelled accordingly. The same general strategy applies here, as the Laeklit Mammut is not immune to Break, Topple, or Daze. Knock this big boy down and take him out.
The Antol King is a level lower than your previous encounter, but comes with 4 Yellow Antols alongside it. Focus the little ones down and then go for the Antol King's head. If you came straight from the previous fight, you may have enough party gauge to pull of a Union Strike which will make short work of these pesky spiders. Shulk's Stream Edge paired with Monado Cyclone can quickly Break and Topple all of the Yellow Antols if a Union Strike doesn't take them out.
Your third Fogbeast in a row, this time with 5 Wind Vangs. The Deinos Sauros is level 73 so it will prove to be more formidable than the previous two. Hit the Wind Vangs with Stream Edge and Monado Cyclone to quickly Topple them and take them out. Keep an eye on your tank's HP, as the Deinos Sauros does more damage mixed with the number of opponents. Use a Union Strike if you have it and the Deinos Sauros will go down just like the others.
