Nier’s Village

The Aerie

1 Enter the village and head to the Village Chief’s house.
2 Talk to the Village Chief by the door.
3 Head to the platform to the north and talk to the guard.
4 Defeat the shades that appear as well as the possessed guards.
5 Head to the marked destination to the southwest (up the ladder) while killing more shades along the way for a cutscene.
6 Defeat more shades that appear. Afterwards, go back to the marked destination.
7 Kill the shades (including the large one) on the platform.
8 Watch the cutscene and prepare to battle Wendy.
9 You will get the Sacrifice Key after defeating Wendy.



Wendy’s weak point is her eye. Attack it with Dark Blast or Dark Lance when it is not covered by the moving tentacle-like aura around her while guarding against or avoiding the orb projectiles that she fires. Note that you can also use Dark Wall to shield yourself from the orbs.

Wendy Boss Guide

Wendy will eventually summon shades on the platforms. Kill them off first and Wendy should expose her eye again. Fire charged Dark Lance to damage her and repeat the process until the attack gauge appears. Aim for it and watch the cutscene.

After the cutscene, be ready to run away from Wendy’s laser attack. Emil will eventually try to hold off Wendy’s beam. This is the signal for you to run to the bridge behind Wendy (to the south going to the chief’s house). Be careful of the orb projectiles firing behind the boss which can cause you to fall off the bridge. Attack her back eye with magic and she should fall to the nearby platform. Head to her location and continue chipping away at her health while employing the earlier strategies when she calls out more shades in the area. Finish Wendy off when the attack gauge appears.
