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.

[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.

Six people, from very different backgrounds, get thrown together in a series of tumultuous events. A Pulse fal'Cie (a demi-god) has been found in the seaside town of Bodhum, a place where the fates of everyone converge and the discovery sets in motion a chain of events that will change the world forever. An innocent fireworks display in the town soon turns nasty when government soldiers storm the peaceful celebration and commit everyone to the Purge (sending individuals "contaminated" by the Pulse fal'Cie into exile). This is where your story and legend begins. Can you fight fate?
