When first Master Eynzahr proposed the twin vessel, I must confess that I had my doubts. Only now that the Whorleater is complete do I see the elegance of this solution.
Proceed to the command room?
She has been fitted with what our friends at Naldiq & Vymelli's are calling an “elemental converter.” Assuming the thing works, it will use the power of the corrupted crystals on board to rob Leviathan of his hold over water.
Depending on how the battle unfolds, you may well need to activate the device manually. Keep that in mind.
It is expected that the Sahagin and their thralls will attempt to come to Leviathan's defense. Accordingly, the Maelstrom will once again employ diversions. Thancred and Y'shtola, I would have you assist in this effort.
If it is to fulfill its purpose, your diversionary force must not want for numbers. By your leave, I too would volunteer my blade.
We would welcome it. Having seen you fight in Sapsa, I daresay the fishbacks will find your presence highly diverting. Thancred and Y'shtola, if you would join the 3rd Levy, and Lady Yugiri, the 5th.
...But what words have I for the woman who has made a sport of slaying gods? Only these: go warily, for the sea is an unforgiving place to wage war. May the Navigator guide you through the storm, Warrior of Light.
I would echo the Admiral's sentiments, and add a few words of mine own. Know that we all have the utmost faith in you, . May the Crystal bless and keep you!
When the battle is won and Leviathan's waves are stilled, we must partake of a barrel of something, you and I! I care not what, so long as it's strong enough to daze a primal, and plentiful enough to drown him! Har har!
Storm Sergeant Styrnlona, at your service! The Whorleater is loaded and ready, madam! I'll give the signal for the towing vessel to weigh anchor as soon as you're aboard.
There's not a soul among us who wouldn't lay down his life to ensure you reach your target, madam─so you just concentrate on skewering that overgrown sea snake, and leave the rest to us!
By the Navigator...you did it! You defeated Leviathan in his own domain! I witnessed the battle from afar, saw the beast sink lifeless beneath the waves...and still I labor to believe it!
The Admiral had hoped to thank you the moment you came ashore, but she thought it meet to accompany the fleet back to Limsa. Pray present yourself to her at your earliest convenience. She will be eager to hear your account of the day's events!
That such beings can be defeated runs contrary to all I know... Whence comes your strength and sense of purpose?
Knowing the urgency of your business, I thought it best to refrain from making conversation during your past few visits. But today I will permit myself a few words. Ahem. I feel truly privileged to have had the honor of admitting a hero such as you. You are an inspiration to us all, madam! And on that note...
The Admiral awaits you in the command room. <wink>
