Where to find Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon

The Rennala boss battle can be a very difficult fight especially if you are dealing with her early on. Before you can do battle with Rennala, you must first find her. You can find Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon in the Raya Lucaria Academy in Liurnia of the Lakes. Once you get to the entrance of the Raya Lucaria Academy, you will notice that the gate is sealed. The only way you can bypass the sealed gate is by retrieving the Academy Glintstone Key.

The coordinates for the Academy Glintstone Key can be found on a map on a corpse near the main gate. Loot the corpse and retrieve the map. The coordinates on the map will lead you to the west side of the Academy. Once you get to the Island you will notice that the Academy Glintstone Key is being guarded by the Glintstone Dragon Smarag. The choice is completely up to you. You can either attempt to kill the Dragon or sneak past the Dragon and loot the Key from a Lucaria Sorcerer’s corpse. Once you have the key, you are ready to head back to the Raya Lucaria Academy and prepare for one heck of a battle.
