The Tangled Message Objectives

Deliver the correct messages to five recipients in order 


The Tangled Message Walkthrough

  •  Speak to the Masked Soldier at the Facade's city' center post. She will be patrolling the platform on her own. 

She will recognize NieR immediately and state a rule. (Rule 56,908 says in order to strengthen community solidarity, we must interact with others on a regular basis.)  She will then mention a series of tasks NieR can do to join in. NieR has to pass on and receive a total of five messages. If he makes a mistake, he must start over from the beginning. 

  • The first recipient is the person guarding the left side of the exit. 
    • The message is "Masked People respect their rules" 
  • The second recipient is the king's right-hand man. (Guard by door of King's Mansion)
    • The message is "The Men of the Mask work for the king"
  • The third recipient is the person taking care of the children (on the walkway between Material Shop and Strange Item Shop)
    • The message is "Childcare can be difficult" 
  • The fourth recipient is the southeastern guardian. (under the Grocer)
    • The message is "Only nobility may enter the treasury"
  • The last recipient is the long-winded person. (Up on higher level near Strange Item Shop)
    •  The message is "Quicksand."

Delivering all five messages correctly will take NieR back to the Masked soldier and end the quest.
