Containment Bay S1T7 (Extreme), also known as Sephirot (Extreme), is unlocked through the quest “A Fiendish Likeness”. This quest becomes available from Unukalhai in the Rising Stones, Mor Dhona (X:6.1, Y:5.3) after clearing the normal version of the trial.

The normal version of Containment Bay S1T7 is unlocked through a line of quests called “The Warring Triad”. This quest chain begins with “Gods of Eld” which can be accepted from Torsefers in the Pillars (X:11.7, Y:11.5).

In the Extreme iteration of this fight, the boss will have upscaled stats and new mechanics. Clearing this trial will reward you with a different set of loot compared to its normal counterpart.

After completing the level 60 Main Scenario Quest “Heavensward”, an NPC named Torsefers will offer a new quest called “Gods of Eld”. Accepting this quest will begin the “Warring Triad” storyline.

Torsefers can be found in the Pillars (X:11.7, Y:11.5), just outside of House Fortemps. After speaking with him, you will be directed to the Rising Stones in Mor Dhona.

When you arrive at the Rising Stones, you are introduced to a masked boy named Unukalhai and learn of his involvement with the Warring Triad. After the cutscene with Unukalhai, you can speak with him to choose which Eikon you’d like to confront first.

Select the quest “When the Bough Wakes” to unlock Containment Bay S1T7 and face Sephirot. After speaking with Unukalhai, travel to Azys Lla and speak with him again at (X:26.7, Y:22.4).

Once you are done battling the normal version Sephirot, return to the Rising Stones to complete “When the Bough Wakes”. Next, speak with Unukalhai once more and he’ll offer you the quest “A Fiendish Likeness”.

At the start of this quest, Unukalhai will present you with an Allagan device that is used to store information. He will continue to explain that if you bring this device to the verification node outside Triad Control, you will be able to engage in a simulated battle with Sephirot.

Make your way to Azys Lla and click on the Verification Node at (X:25.6, Y:22.4). This may be a little tricky to find, since the node is found underground.

To find the Verification Node, get to the quest marker on your map then take a few steps to the east. Here you’ll find an entrance to a tunnel that leads to the node.

After presenting the device to the Verification Node, “A Fiendish Likeness” will be complete and you will have gained access to Containment Bay S1T7 (Extreme).

There are two other items you may obtain from clearing this trial. These items will go directly into your inventory instead of showing up in the treasure pool where party members cast lots.

The first item is the Fiend Totem. This is a guaranteed drop and can be exchanged for a Sephirot weapon (10 totems) or a Warring Lanner Whistle (99 totems) with Bertana in Idyllshire (X:5.9, Y:5.2).

The other item is the Sephirot Card. This is a 4-star Triple Triad card that is added to your collection when used.


Weapons of the Fiend

The sap you obtain from Containment Bay S1T7 (Extreme) is used in crafting Fiend weapons. These items are similar to the ones you obtain from clearing the trial but have a lower item level.

Despite this, they’re quite popular as glamour items since they have a glow effect when drawn.

More crafting materials for Fiend weapons can be obtained from desynthesizing the ones obtained from defeating Sephirot.
