A Pulsework champion that had been working the Mah’habara Subterra Subterra has gone haywire, and is now raising chaos on the steppe’s northern highplain. It is my Focus to see the automaton deactivated—a duty which I undertake not only at the fal’Cie’s behest, but for my husband, whom the accursed machine butchered. By all that is sacred, I will not rest until I have torn it washer from bolt!

Location

Our next target is a Pulsework Champion in the Northern Highplain - a mob type that we have not seen in a while. If you look at the map you will see that the location for our target is not that far to the east - so loop back up the path and around the bluff and head for that Champion!

Strategy

Once you arrive in the vicinity and see the Champion, dismount and start the fight! This fella does a fair bit of blocking and he can hit hard - so keeping an eye on your health bars is a given. Until you stagger it, fighting this thing feels a lot like a boss fight, but once it is staggered it goes down very fast, so just don’t let it kill you while you get it staggered, right? This fight pays off in 2,860 CP , a Mission Complete, and some Perfect Conductors .
