Yeah, but do Neeba and Kaaya know Gilgamesh has the Rod? I mean.. isn't Gilgamesh down in Meskia at the bottom? Have they also been fooled by Gilgamesh or is the Rod really up there? Then why did Gilgamesh say he has it? Does he have easy access to the top like a teleport?
I mean there are a shitton of questions which no one really knows the answers to, all we can do is speculate on things.
