Recruit Dietrich

The Shield of Illier quests were added in v26.32.48. This quest guide is based on American game client (v26.60.82). In v27.56.86, the drop rates of various quest items will be improved. You do not need any items, but you must have Adriana (or Cadet Adriana) to initiate some NPC dialogues.


See the new Quests page where various quests are consolidated by their respective patches.

Synopsis :
The royal guard commander Dietrich is bored, so she decided to find a way to screw Duke Bethel over. She visits the slums to give some money, but Lynn previously warned them not to trust her since she does not want them to become a political tool for Dietrich.

Duke Bethel asks you to watch Dietrich who is on probation and has gone to Bernier Mansion. You catch up to Dietrich and beat off some vanguards. Duke Bethel claims that surviving assassinations only proves one's competence and is expected for nobles of Illier.

Dietrich implores you to investigate the reason Duke Bethel is so keen on demolishing Bernier Mansion. You discover that they are secretly developing something under the pretense of demolishment. Dietrich thinks it is a weapon to help Bagellan Witchcraft Troops and Bethel Vanguards to fight against Herbert Knights and Shausen Ironsides.

You find Polluted Otite in the mansion, where Leona thinks Truman is hiding. You stop the machine soldiers from leaving the mansion, and Dietrich wants to search for Stratavista on the second floor.

You find Duke Bethel's contract in the mansion, and stop various monsters from taking Magical Rose Stems to the second floor. Dietrich leads Evora troops across the Apians River, only to run into a fight with Duke Bethel and his vanguards. As a civil war nearly breaks out, Lynn and Leona convinces Dietrich to stop as the chaos of a civil war may invite Targa to invade Illier.

Dietrich reports the incident to the archon, but Count Bagellan takes the fall and resigned as commander of Witchcraft Troops. Lynn asks Dietrich to remember the pledge of the Herbert Knights: "Wield a sword with a cold icy heart."

After attempting to recruit you, Dietrich asks you to recover the runes of Talos for Valeron to repair her sword. After her sword has been repaired, Dietrich challenges Duke Bethel to a duel. She claims that they have come too far for unity, one of them has to die eventually to unite Illier.

At Lynn's advice, you bring Adriana to meet Dietrich, who were rivals 10 years ago. Adriana tells her that a leader must be two-faced so she can be level-headed and yet embrace the people. Agreeing with her rival, Dietrich decides to see more of the world by joining your family.

[135][The Shield of Illier] Rose Bushes
Prerequisites: Completed the quest above.
  1. Talk to Dietrich in Bethel (C5) on the next day.
  2. Trigger a combat mission ("Rose Bushes", 30 minutes) in Bernier Mansion 1F (F3).
    • Defend the Closed Gate from the Lifeless monsters for 5 minutes.
    • Tip: Use a tank (Sirius) or Emilia with Invulnerable skill to run quickly to a big room (e.g. D7) and just wait it out... It seems the monsters have a tendency to go after you instead. This could be a bug that may be patched later.
    • Tip: If the above doesn't work, move to a corner and let the gate tank. Use characters with area attacks (Montoro, Elementalist, etc.) to clear the monsters. Use Emilia's Invulnerable skill on the attackers if they kill in 1 hit.
    • Tip: Do not try to tank the monsters. There are too many. Even 3 tanks are not enough to provoke all the monsters away from the gate.
    • Note: Thanks to those who contributed in GE Europe Forum topic here .
