I didn't hear this clearly when I went to see The Rise of Skywalker, but...

What did C-3PO say in the Sith language?

The best I could find online is:

So of course, C-3PO courageously sacrifices his memories to save his friends, and for a second his eyes gleam bright red -- as seen in the trailers -- as he recites the coordinates of Exegol and the Sith Fleet.

I'm even more confused, since I thought we needed the Sith wayfinder to get to Exegol, and not just "directions":

C-3PO: Oh, I read it, sir. I know exactly where the wayfinder is. Unfortunately, it is written in the runic language of the Sith.

    Just as an aside, I think C-3PO probably said "runic language of the Sith". :-) And, yeah, I think whoever wrote that first article hadn't understood the plot, C-3PO was indeed directing them to the wayfinder (i.e., the ruins of the Death Star) not to Exegol. Commented Dec 27, 2019 at 9:38

C-3PO isn't giving them the directions to Exegol, he says that they can find another Wayfinder at the site of the crashed Death Star II.

"The Emperor's Wayfinder is in the Imperial Vault. At Delta 3 6, Transient 9 3 6, Bearing 3 2, on a moon in the Endor System. From the Southern shore, only this blade tells".

The Emperor's Wayfinder will then give them the directions and transit points to get to Exegol.


What C-3PO read on the blade was where to find the Wayfinder, not directions to Exegol. He recites instructions where to find the Wayfinder including if I remember correctly that it is a vault in the Emporer's throne room on the remains of the Death Star.

    Right. Valorum's answer is technically correct, but this one is more pertinent as to why the OP is confused; namely, what was written at CBR is wrong.
