Part 52: Chapter Fifty-One: Hail to the KingWith Yuveria repaired and a Dragon Tongue needed for the Reptile Eggs recipe, the next task seemed pretty clear. They prepared to return to the Lalizatt cave and end the Dragon King Ardgevalds reign of terror once and for all. First, they stopped by nearby Claire village, where rumor sent them.
Feinnes Fourth Wall Lectures: Secret Shop
Claire Villages secret shop can be accessed once you have Megidos Key, it sells the recipe for the incredibly powerful Globe item and dragon bits. We cant make the Globe yet but we will eventually be able to do so.
Someone else was hunting the Dragon King.
Oh, its you guys
You dont have to be so rude!
You havent recovered from your injuries, have you?
I heard the Dragon King showed up again.
So, I thought I might risk my life to protect the people.
As an Imperial Champion, I caused a lot of suffering for the people.
This is my shot at atoning for my misdeeds
So, let me do my job.
I dont think hes easy to defeat, but
He is going to fight Ardgevald.
He is at a great disadvantage.
Lets catch up to him. We can still help him!
Galahad was already fighting the Dragon King when they arrived.

But he was too badly injured to stand much of a chance.
Are you alright?!
I was worried about this
I told you, you dont know your own limits.
Besides, thats my enemy youre fighting!
Im the dragon slayer, and its time to slay this one.
Only one of us is leaving this cave, and its time to see which one!
Here I come, dragon!
Boss Battle: Ardgevald 1
This fight with Ardgevald is basically identical to the last one we had in Lalizatt Cave. Ardgevald doesnt do much thats really dangerous and hell go down pretty quickly.
Ardgevald attempted to flee, but there was no escaping this time.

Watch the Battle
Oh, no it doesnt!
Its coming back down!
Nows our chance to slay it!
Boss Battle: Ardgevald 2
Now were fighting him for real. Lets talk about what Ardgevald is bringing to the fight thats really dangerous. One of his attacks does fire damage to everyone several times and debuffs their defense. Another does a bunch of lightning damage to one person. The third does damage and debuffs everyones elemental resistances. His final attack is the real pain in the ass, though, his Flare Cannon. This does massive fire damage to the whole party. Dont be like me and try to rely on just buffs to save you from it, use accessories like the Fire Brand to just immune it out. Noin is actually pretty good in this fight because her Healing Light skill will dispel debuffs. Vieses heal over time stuff is great for keeping everyone topped off for Flare Cannon, again just be careful because its really easy for her to get dropped instantly by it. Eventually you should be able to slug the Dragon King down, though itll be long and tough for an Iris 2 fight.
With Ardgevald slain, they had their Dragon Tongue.
Woohoo! We finally killed the Dragon King Ardgevald!
Im alright, Noin.
Look, Dad, you have to start taking care of your body.
Alright, lets go.
Yes, back to Riese Palace.
And could create the Reptile Egg, a component of the Ruby Prism.
So, Ardgevalds tongue was turned into an egg Alchemy sure is strange.
But, why did it turn into an egg?
It appears that the Ruby Prism needs the concentrated power of life found in a large egg.
We could make the best sunny-side up eggs with this.
Do you want me to kick you? Because I will
I was joking Ha ha, heh
This egg Its warm And soothing
Thats nice, Fee.
It must be the power of life within it.
But the road would only get more difficult from here. Their next stop would be Alha village, hometown of Chaos, which carried a secret none of them expected.
