The Undying—fearsome Cie’th who defy fal’Cie will, driven by an intense loathing of all that lives. Mithridates, the lone, is of their number, and his undoing is my burden. It is said in life he once loved music. I can but hope the notes sounded by the elevator in Taejin’s Tower descending from the apex might lure him out, and allow me to restore a touch of harmony to the discord of the tower’s tainted song.


You’ll have to solve a short puzzle in order to make the mark appear. Start by checking the statue at the Apex. The lift can now access the 7th tier so go down there. Next, examine the statue before heading to what appears to be a dead end. A lift arrives; ride it up to the Apex and take that same lift down to the ground tier.

Weak to all elements but immune to earth. Has over 1.5 million HP so it might take a while to beat him. Start with a Synergist buffing everyone with Protect, Shell, Veil, Barthunder and Faith. Equipping lightning-resistant accessories also help. Alternate betweem Tri-disaster (RAV/RAV/RAV) and Relentless Assault (COM/RAV/RAV) to stagger him. Once staggered, switch to Aggression (COM/RAV/COM) and pile on the damage. Be sure to have a potent healing paradigm such as Salvation (MED/MED/MED) ready for use when needed.
