The Castle of Karnak
The Castle of Karnak on the world map

Karnak Castle is a location in Final Fantasy V. It is accessible on Bartz's World. It is the resting place of the Fire Crystal and it is connected to the Fire-Powered Ship via passageways at its bottom, which hold the crystal empowering device, that also charges the Fire-Powered Ship.



Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

When the Karnak Meteorite falls near Tule. Bartz Klauser and the other Warriors of Light reach the country of Karnak via a warp device in the Walse Meteorite, that takes them directly to the Karnak Meteorite. From there, they head to the town of Karnak, where they are arrested, since a witness saw them leaving the alien rock.

In captivity, the Warriors of Light meet Cid. They show him that the crystals gave them their blessings, which shocks the old man. In the same moment, the Karnak councellor hurries to Cid, telling him that the Crystal has a crack. With haste, all of them hurry to the Fire-Powered Ship.

Back from the Fire-Powered Ship and into the castle's lowest floor, the heroes find the Fire Crystal and the Werewolf. Albeit all their efforts, the Fire Crystal is destroyed thanks to a possessed Karnak Soldier. This causes the Castle to explode, destroying the great wall that blocked access to the Library of the Ancients.

After the Fire Crystal and the werewolf are destroyed, the player is warped into it and has 10 minutes to escape the castle before it is destroyed. After defeating the boss, Iron Claw, the crystal shards descend from the sky and grant the Beastmaster, Geomancer and Ninja jobs (the remaining two, Ranger and Bard, must be found later at the Chocobo Forest).
