Why do men dream of flying? And why must we be without wings? True, a nest of vipers hangs in our sky. Yet were the sky the province of all things harmful to life, still would I gladly soar amongst the clouds. What cruel irony then that I should be charged with smiting a winged zirnitra… Regardless, I had best head to the eastern tors. Then again, crystals cannot fly, and some Cie’th can…


The mark for this mission is a Zirnitra - and its location if you look at the map is almost directly on the other side of the zone. Head in a northerly direction and as you get to the other side check the map to see where you need to be, and then head there.

[Left] Zirnita Enemy Intel. [Right] Battle commences.


Bring in a Saboteur to stick Deshell, Deprotect, and Imperil. Shift to Tri-disaster (RAV/RAV/RAV) until mark staggers then shift to Cerberus (COM/COM/COM) for the kill.
