I’ve been given the Focus of eliminating a stampeding adamantortoise in the eastern tors of the Archylte Steppe. It seems someone enraged the beast by attacking its young, and the fal’Cie wish it dead. I understand the danger it poses, but is violence the only solution? I would be enraged if someone attacked my child! It just seems so wrong…


It is located back in the Steppe in the indented area to the left of the circle of stones - check the map in that area to see the target location.

The easiest way to win this battle is to make Van your leader, add the Perseverance deck, make it the default deck, and then equip as much earth and element resist kit as you have. Now simply spam Death at it until it dies. Right - I know that this feels like a cheap way to do this… But the bottom like is that it is quick, you get 5-stars without having to be frustrated, and you get to move on to the next mission sooner rather than later!

Note: Killing this mob will not unlock the Adamant Will Trophy/Achievement - to do that you need to kill one of the walkers near the circle of stones.
