=== Walkthrough ===
 
* After completing 5-1, you will need roughly 3 stacks of crystals worth of Rank points before you can get 5-2.
 
**Alternatively, you can repeat Mission 1-2 ([[Bat Hunt]]) six (6) times to gain access to this mission.
 
**If you have previously accepted the quest [[Under Oath]], you will be unable to speak to Trion about the mission. You must complete the first portion of [[Under Oath]] that involves talking to various people in Southern San d'Oria.
 
* After accepting this mission, speak to [[Halver]] and then to [[Trion|Prince Trion]] for a cutscene.
 
* Upon zoning into [[Castle Zvahl Baileys ]], go straight until you encounter the first intersection and make a left. Go down a small flight of stairs and then turn right and follow the left wall and you will enter the Orc section of the castle.
 
* Go through the area to the west again and eventually you will zone into [[Castle Zvahl Keep]].
 
* Once you enter [[Castle Zvahl Keep]], you will have to open several gates, very often in front of mobs that detect on sight.
 
* You will encounter a series of teleport devices. These devices will cancel the Invisible effect after they are used. Once you use the last device, run to the west exit of the map where you will find a zoneline to the [[Throne Room]].
 
* This fight is level capped at level 75. (Meaning that buffs will wear upon entry.)
 
* When ready, gather in front of the door. When you enter, a cutscene will happen and the fight begins. Cast the prefight buffs before getting closer.
 
* The [[Shadow Lord]] has 2 forms. In the first form he alternates between physical and magic immunity. He has magic immunity until around 50% HP, then starts to switch to physical. From this point he will switch about every 5 minutes or 1000 damage.
 
:* When Shadow Lord starts taking 0 damage from physical attacks, mages need to nuke repeatedly and rest when melee are able to deal damage again.
 
:* When he's immune to magic, he uses a Dark Nova WS (AOE [[Darkness]] damage) and casts [[Black Mage]] spells.
 
::* Dark Nova seems to indicate that he will switch to physical immunity very soon, after casting a spell or two. So use your TP quickly.
 
:* When he's immune to physical, he uses a variety of WS (Giga Slash, Kick Back, Umbra Smash).
 
* After the first form is defeated, a cutscene will appear. The second form will show up after the cutscene and does not wait for you to rest.
 
* This form of Shadow Lord will do nothing but a AOE attack but only has 4000 HP and should go down quickly.
 
:* Melees should use their 2 hour abilities and Icarus Wing if possible to have TP for their best weaponskill. Mages should cast their Curaga spells.
 
* After this form is defeated, another cutscene occurs. Once the cutscene ends, you will be transported back to the entrance of [[Castle Zvahl Baileys]]. Here you will receive the [[Key Item]] [[Shadow Fragment]].
 
* Speak to [[Halver]] for Rank 6 and your Gil.
 
* Report back to [[Prince Trion]] in the ''Great Hall'' for a cutscene. (not in [[Prince Trion]]'s room)

  +
* Upon zoning into [[Castle Zvahl Baileys]] (consult the map for ease of navigation), move westward to the 4-way intersection at G-8; head south from here, down the stairs that you will soon come to, and then on to the second map through the border of E/F-8.
  +
* On Map 2, move south to the bottom of I-9, finding a group of Orcs, then go up the stairs here; move west to G-9 (Yagudo) and go back down the stairs there, being careful to not fall off the circular ledges along the way; turn left from the staircase heading east, when you reach a gate, turn left again. Take the next right turn and make your way to another short stairway appearing on your right at the border of G/H-8 and go up; from there move west to zone into [[Castle Zvahl Keep]].
  +
** A short cut is to head to the Goblin section and drop down their hole. Once you climb back up the steps you will be behind the barrier so walk under the arch, hang a right, take an immediate left at the Quadav. Then walk up onto the platform turn left and up the gigantic staircase into the Keep.
  +
  +
* Once you enter [[Castle Zvahl Keep]], you will have to open several gates/doors, very often in front of mobs that detect by sight. On Map 1, make your way to either point "A" at H-6 or "B" at H-10 to get to Map 2; on Map 2, strut through a few more doors and gates to "C" at E-8.
  +
* On Map 3 you will encounter a series of teleport devices. Be aware that these devices will cancel the [[Invisible]] effect after they are used. Also, they will turn on and off from time to time, so you may have to wait on one before it teleports you. Once you use the last device (top-right corner, G-9), you will be on Map 4. Now make your way west, and zone to the [[Throne Room]] area via the ''Ore Door'' at G-7 (next to Home Point #1).
  +
* Finally, go west all the way across the bridge here to the Throne Room door. Examine the door to view a cutscene and, when ready, examine again and select "The Shadow Lord Battle" to enter the BC.

  +
:* After the first phase is defeated, a brief cutscene will occur as he switches to phase two. He will immediately attack after this cutscene, so there's no time for rest.
  +
::* In this phase, the [[Shadow Lord]] will do nothing but his [[Implosion]] attack (which hits almost everywhere in the battlefield), but he only has 4000 HP and should go down quickly.
