Prerequisite Mission 38 or 39

Divine bounty fills the earth with life, giving birth to all creation. A tonberry stands upon the living earth, consuming stagnation within the flow, ready to decide your fate. Face its judgment.


The mark for this mission is some of the comic-looking Tonberry - touching the stone teleports us to the new zone, and a quick check of the map shows us the marks in a branch to the left ahead.

For Quest D-1, you'll be taking on three Grudge-filled Tonberries simultaneously. Even if you're on your second playthrough, this one's gonna be really hard. The best strategies are putting the Tonberries at a disadvantage: either carefully creep up on the patch of land they patrol to get the jump on them with a preemptive strike (a difficult, though not impossible, task), or get a Saboteur in there to hit them with status afflictions like Slow and Poison. If you manage to get a preemptive strike, you can use a move like Quake to stagger all three at once, and then call a Summon like Odin into the battlefield to take advantage of their weakened state. If you can't pull that off, then you're probably in for a pretty long – and very difficult – battle. Good luck – you will need it.
