The Lighthouse Lady’s Wrath is also a short quest and one of the saddest in the video game; however, this time you will have to make a choice and also solve a small puzzle.
Additionally, there are several aspects you’ll have to be aware of when playing this quest that basically reveals the truth behind the grumpy old lady in Seafront.
As usual, this guide will cover everything you need to know about The Lighthouse Lady’s Wrath in NieR Replicant, including the puzzle solution and how your choices will affect the next quest in line.
But let’s start from the beginning.
When Should I Start NieR Replicant Lighthouse Lady’s Wrath Quest?
The answer here is pretty simple. The moment you finish the previous quest named Postman’s Request, which as explained is best played after you save the Prince of Facade.
It’s also worth mentioning that you don’t want to delay this side-quest, otherwise, you may miss it.
So, make sure you finish it before talking to Popola when you return from the Manor.
Again, to begin this NieR Replicant side quest you have to talk to Devola in your Village’s Tavern because this quest follows the same structure as the previous one.
As such, go back to the Tavern in your Village, talk to Devola and she will hand you the location of the quest giver, who is the same Postman in Seafront.
Since this is the second quest, you already know that the Postman’s Office in Seafront is close to the eastern bridge and the save point.
When you get to the office you’ll see the Lighthouse Lady arguing with the Postman.
Long story short, the Lighthouse Lady wants to leave the lighthouse and go see her lover; however, without her, the Lighthouse can’t work properly, thus the Postman wants her to remain inside and do her job.
After the cutscene, talk to the Postman, then accept the quest.
Now, exit the office and pay a visit to the Old Lady, following the same route you used for the previous quest. You’ll find her in bed and realize she is sick, like Yonah.
Except that her time is almost over.
Good, so now that you know what is going on, head back to the Postman and talk to him.
When he finds the truth, he will be quite amazed and send you away.
At this point, exit the office and enter again, to find the Postman writing a letter.
Again the long story short is that the Postman was sending fake letters to the Old Lady pretending that he is her lover. But he kept away real letters in the backroom.
Postman’s Office Puzzle Solution
To continue the quest, your next objective is to solve a very accessible puzzle in the postman’s office. Or backroom if you want.
Just approach the stairs and you’ll see a room with multiple crates.
Your goal here is to move the boxes so you can access a hidden room on the other side.
Here is a possible solution to the NieR Replicant Postman’s Office puzzle.
Good then, so in the next room, there are two items you’ll need to find.
First is a Black Pearl on the table, that can fetch a good price from any vendor, and the second item is a pack of letters. The real letters, or the Postman’s Parcel.
Get these, then talk to the Postman. The worker will be quite offended and let you decide what you tell the Lighthouse Lady. This means that now you have to go back to see her.
Lighthouse Lady Dialogue Choices: Tell The Truth Or Lie?
When you get to the dying Lighthouse Lady, the quest is almost over, and you’ll have two dialogue choices:
- Give her the letter and perpetuate the lie
- Tell her that the lover is dead
When you make this choice you have to be aware that it won’t affect your rewards at all. Or the story. The only effect your choice has is on how the poor lady leaves this world. Happy, or sad?
If you perpetuate the lie she’ll die happy, but if you tell her the truth, she will die sad.
The end is near, so there is absolutely no reason to make this harder than it already is. So, you should lie and you’ll see the result of your action in the next quest named Closure; which only requires you to talk to Devola and then return to the Postman.
Do this the moment you complete The Lighthouse Lady’s Wrath.
