As Natsu announces that his right arm is a one-time secret weapon against Zeref, Mavis decides to trust him with this and they continue, with Makarov revealing all that he knows about the Spriggan 12. At the same time, Dimaria visits Brandish, letting her know about the meeting with Zeref, where they gather to discuss Fairy Heart and the annihilation of Ishgar. As the two sides plan their strategies, Acnologia decides that he will join the upcoming war.
Brandish μ, busy getting her nails polished by a shrunken Marin Hollow, is asked about her mission on Caracole Island by Dimaria Yesta. The Valkyrie informs her about a gathering of the Spriggan 12 and suggests that Marin should be reverted to his original size before taking her leave. Concurrently, Natsu reveals that he has developed a one-off technique for defeating Zeref, but refuses to elaborate on the details, much to the chagrin of his guildmates. Mavis tells everybody that she has some plans too, but would believe in Natsu for the moment. Makarov then reveals all the information he has about their opponents.
Simultaneously, at the gathering of the Shields of Spriggan, Zeref commends the seven who heeded his summons. Invel condemns the people who are absent, but Ajeel says that the discussion would be easier with fewer people. Zeref then states that they will finally begin their assault on Ishgar, a task which Brandish finds particularly troublesome but unavoidable as it is her leader's command. Her lethargy is chided by Dimaria, a female knight who does not need Magic to win her battles. Zeref then asks God Serena for his opinion, with the quirky Mage stating that he has no objections.
Finally, August, whom according to Makarov possesses more types of Magic than Zeref himself, states that the Alvarez Empire is ready for Ragnarok. Wall Eehto reproaches Zeref for his selfish motive of trying to recover his former lover's body, but is told that Fairy Heart is a Magic and that Zeref's main motive is the destruction of mankind. As the Spriggan Twelve accept their roles as Zeref's pawns, Makarov reveals the names of two more members of this elite force, Bloodman and Neinhart.
