The Aerie Quests & Major Events Walkthrough
This is Nier’s initial destination in his search for the Sealed Verses after meeting Grimoire Weiss. Popola suggests looking for the village chief and ask him for more information on the Sealed Verse locations.
The Aerie's Village Chief is located at the highest point of the town. He lives at the gold hut up top. Upon NieR's first visit to the Aerie, the location will pan towards the Chief's house. The town will be riddled with hordes of Shades upon NieR's arrival. Once he fights through them and reaches the Chief, he will find that he too, like the other residents, is just as unwelcoming, and will also shoo NieR away and they will make no progress with the Sealed Verses here.
However, his journey back from The Aerie will bring his first official encounter with Kainé.
There are no clients in the Aerie for NieR to begin any of his Side Quests.
