Finding Isis Husband’s Coffin in Shin Megami Tensei IV

Published on July 28th, 2013 by Gervais D.

After exploring Tokyo for a bit in Shin Megami Tensei IV, I decided to head back into Mikado to see what new quests were in store for me at K’s Tavern. This was around the time after I defeated Peallaidh in the game. I think you have to beat him before the quest can appear.

Update: Thanks to an email that we received, you should know that this quest is given by a demon that you talk to during battle around the same time of defeating Peallaidh.

The name of the quest is Isis’ Search for the Coffin.

The first part of the quest is to talk to Isis in Naraku. That’s the easy part. She is located on the second level of Naraku. There’s only one door on the second level (Naraku – 2th Stratum), and within that door, she can be found.

There, she tells you about her husband’s coffin and how it’s being carried to the deeper levels of Naraku because of the river. The thing is, she does not know which level of Naraku the coffin is in, therefore, you have to search for it yourself.

Which level in Naraku is the coffin at?

The 4th level of Naraku (Naraku – 4th Stratum). The coffin is well hidden. If you did not know where it was before, it’s going to be a long search and some players might not even find it. That’s how well it’s hidden on the 4th level of Naraku.

Directions to find the coffin in the 4th level of Naraku

The screenshot below shows you a map of the 4th level of Naraku :

The red ‘X’ from the screenshot above shows the location where you must move your character to, to find the coffin. Go towards the dead end and you should notice that you can perform an action at the wall. Press the ‘A’ button when standing by the wall.

Remember, Seth is the enemy for this quest, so be prepared for a battle.

Updated: It is possible to avoid battling Seth. A few pointers if you run into him during the quest – (1) he’s a dragon, (2) he shows up on the map as the pink object, (3) your protagonist can’t attack, (4) the coffin takes damage when the protagonist is attacked.
