Emil

lunafreya-ffxv-character

Age/Gender

 Male

Emil is an NPC in Nier: Automata. Resembles the companion character who accompanied the player in the NieR: Gestalt / NieR: Replicant, but may actually be a copy. He harbors latent magical power, but most of his memory is gone due to the long years that have passed.

 

Emil Information

"This mysterious creature emerged from inside of a machine lifeform and set up a shop afer obtaining a new body. While he calls himself Emil, his true identity is a mystery. Once he discovered who had been stealing from his room, he was incited to fight. But after being defeated, he was reduced to tears by the realization that only power matters in this world."

 

Where to find/Location

  • When you speak to Pascal at his village, after completing the fight with A2, Emil will start appearing on the map. He can be found in the northeast corner of the City Ruins, driving around in a van. Shoot him with your POD to make him stop and speak to him for a hint about his home. Head back to the commercial district where you access the Forest Zone and interact with the Lunar Tear flower. Emil will appear and ask you to look for other Lunar Tears and the Side Quest Emil's Memories will begin. 
  • During your second playthrough as 9S, after unlocking the Forest Zone, you can go to the City Ruins and go into the of pipe just above the City Ruins: Cave location. (Not the one with the ladder down to the caves, but the one between the two ruined buildings.) Open this door using the Elevator Key you had obtained via the quest Emil's Memories. Inside, you will be at "City Ruins: Deep Cave". Please note that the door leading to Emil's Residence will be locked if you go there on a second playthrough, and requires you to talk to Emil at the desert entrance again for it to be unlocked.
  • Explore the deep cave, unlock some unit data for Enhanced Machines (lvl 50) and items such as Silver Ore and Meteorite, a Locked Chest, Titanium AlloyMemory Alloy. and Pyrite.
  • Eventually you will arrive at a gate and to Emil's Residence. Go inside and pick up Emil's Mask. Return to the surface, find Emil and talk to him again. He will comment and say someone stole from him and now he has put everything in a secured chest.
  • Go back down the elevator in the pipe to the Deep Cave, and unlock the special Locked Chest that now appears in Emil's Residence. You will obtain Emil's Head.
  • When you exit the room, Emil faces you as a Level 99 Boss. The best way to defeat him is to have Auto-Heal and Anti Chain Damage Chips on, and 2B on aggressive. Focus on dodging the projectiles and trying to hack Emil.
  • If you begin increasing the hacking gauge, and then perform a perfect dodge, during the slow motion the gauge suddenly fills up rapidly. This can be abused by letting him try to ram you, hacking until the last second, and then dodging towards him, and immidatly dodging away. This generally fills up 90% of the gauge almost instantly

 

Emil's Shop

 Emil will spawn randomly in one of three locations; near the Desert Zone entrance, the City Ruins: Near Factory access point, and outside the Resistance Camp. He will sell different items depending on where you find him. He has two kinds of items in stock per route, either chips or weapons and materials. Making him switch routes is - for now - quite unreliable. Teleporting in and out of access points seems to work. Another fairly good approach is to walk between the desert zone and halfway to the Desert: Camp access point via moose, then check your map for his icon. It is faster than teleporting and has a good chance of making him switch routes.

      How the hell do you initiate Emils Determination? I got 100%, weapons lvl 4 on them all, beat him in his dungeon but he does not appear in the mall, in the desert or anywhere. And when i talk to him in the city he just says "someone broke in".

      Well, dun, someone broke in and killed you you dumb ball.

        Some (useful?) observation: Emils high-level shop, option to buy either good materials or two weapons and a dress module, switches after you restart the game client completely.
        This isnt backed up by any facts, but after running around him for good 4 hours, and him selling only 3 out of 4 total options, i gave up and when i came back that evening, he sold the high-level materials on the first try.

          So far i have tried a method to ensure Emil will always spawn near the resistance camp to buy high end Material. Credit to youtuber Paulo Seilauq and Hans Schmid. For future reference: game version 1.06, i have beat the game and unlock the chapter select mode, i was at chapter 7-1:
          - After the chapter select ( or the first time you see him on map) he will always spawn right in front of desert camp and circle around there. You need to hit him with the pod and talk to him once, at that time he always sell basic chip and some normal material
          -After that, whenever you reload or teleport to city ruins area he will ( mostly) spawn near Engels , under the broken bridge in the big area infront of City ruins near factory point and roam around city ruin but never get near the resistance camp area. There you must fast travel to City ruins near factory , wait for him to go nearby and hit him there, talk to him until he said you being too aggresive.
          - Now warp to city ruins near tower and start run toward the mall, cross the wooden bridge into the mall, now heading back to the city and cross the bridge again, run until you get near the other side of the bridge, turn on the map and emil should be spawn near the entrance area resistance camp. IF he not show up on map, teleport to city ruin near factory and he should be there.
          -Sometime he will sell the +6 chips and other time the high end material, so far i can confirm that the rate is 50%. If he not sell what you want , just rins and repeat from above
          So far i only done this methode twice and both of the time he spawn near the resistance camp.
          Hopefully this will help

            To enter Emil's real home (not the place with Lunar Tier flowers) you need to speak with him at least once so he says something about how deep he lives. Then you can find entrance to his place inside one of tubes in the middle of huge hole (City ruins), there are not so much tubes sticking out and the one you need is closer to amusement park entrance. When you find the tube and go in, you will se an *exit* elevator and a very deep cave, go deep. Finding his home is not so hard from this point on.

              If you wanna beat him without leveling too high, you can just build a plugin chip with as many as Vengeance chips as possible and fill the rest with Max HP Up. That way you only need to stock up on your heal items and get hit constantly while spamming Heal; Emil will just slap himself to death.

              • 25 Mar 2017 08:00  

                Once you get to the last 1/6 of his health, consume all the damage enhancement consumables possible and focus only on normal attacks, because once his hyper-fast theme starts playing in the background, you have about 90 seconds to finish the fight before he performs an unavoidable EMP that WILL instakill you!

                  its not inside its house, its in the dungeon maze that head to its house, after defeat emile you cant enter the house anymore, alas only spawn emils shop in the chapter before you have defeted him, so thast the thing xD

                  • 22 Mar 2017 08:34  

                    ------SPOILER-------





                    So I just won the last secret emil boss-fight (desert) and it says on here you could find a pod upgrade L in his house at this point in the game.
                    The only problem. I can't enter his house no matter what i do. Does anyone have an idea how to enter? It would be my last trophy :/

                    • 22 Mar 2017 07:02  

                      Be sure to talk to Emil after finding his home for the first time. If you end up switching chapters you will have to revisit Emil's home and pick up the mask again. (though it will say inventory full, it will register it)

                      • 21 Mar 2017 15:37  

                        you fougth emile 2 times in the game, one its when you leave the cave with emil´s head, the second its when after defeating emile, instead of killing it in the cave you leave it alone, then you fougth the emil´s replicant boss, in the desert, for that you need to encounter emil´s in the map to triger the quest, that bos is far away harder than the emil´s you figth in the cave, and are 6 emil´s heads, it attack with bubble burst atak, 2 eye rays attaks, alas with rush ones, like the probe one similar in the desert, but with a hard lot of speed and more damage, when you are lvl90+ its a easy figth, alas laser pod upgrade its a big help there, for the charged mode, and the dota that it cause. if you have speared emil´s in the cave this drop the gloves emile´s head

                          There is also another kind of Emil's Shop.
                          You can buy: Type-3 Fists (weapon), Angel's Folly (weapon), Dress Module (Key item).
                          With the dress module you can change your outfit (pants vs pantsless) without using self-destruct.

                          • 14 Mar 2017 22:41  

                            If you have the means and cannot make true damage to Emil you can use defensive chips + vengeance chips to give back some damage to him. It will ask for you to have a lot of healing items but at least you will be able to do at least 3K of damage for each attack returned.

                              if you're following this as a guide to get to this boss fight, then i would recommend at least being level 65 for the level 99 fight or your hacking will do negligible damage and you'll be at the fight for hours
