It is a cruel and contemptible contest the fal’Cie have devised, but one from which I may not yet absent myself. We assembled l’Cie must overcome innumerable obstacles as we compete to slay the goblin chieftain on the northern highplain. The prize? Freedom from bondage as a l’Cie. I will win, be made human again, and return to propose to my lover, from whose arms the tyrant fal’Cie stole me.

Location

A Goblin Chieftain is the mark for this mission, and he is located on the Northern Highplain, which is the same general area that Mission 10 was in, except we do not head down the slope but head to the right of the entrance to the slope. This is a long run, with more than a few chances for some pick-up fights along the way. You may want to use the save point nearby prior to heading for the marker on the map - and once you reach the marker you will find the Chieftain surrounded by some of his Goblin brethren.

Strategy

The Goblin Chieftain is essentially just like regular Goblins… only about twice the size. He’s also got his minions in tow. The Goblins have some skills that the Munchkins don’t: the power-boosting Goblinhancement buff and the damaging Goblin Punch. A Saboteur might even the odds for a while, but it’s probably more practical to simply aim to kill them as quickly as possible.
