Prerequisite Mission 30

I have been charged with putting down a stray adamanchelid that wanders the steppe’s eastern tors, no doubt seeking its lost parents. What kind of monster could preform such a deed? Not a day goes by I don’t recall the pain of losing a child to a rampaging beast. Would I now subject other parents to that fate? No, I forsake my Focus. The cycle of suffering ends here.

Location

An Adamanchelid is the next mark, and it is located in the Eastern Tors - back in the main area of the Steppe. So go ahead and hit the teleport stone and zip to the Northern Highplane, grab the choco nearby and head for the marker on the map. To be clear the giant walker ahead of you is in fact the mark.

Strategy

Adamanchelid isn’t as fierce as its older Adamantoise relatives, but it can still lay down a world of hurt on your party. You’ll definitely want to buff up as much as you can before going in for the kill, so set a Synergist to up your defenses from the start of battle (and Medics to back you up while you do – a Sentinel wouldn’t hurt either) or make use of a Shroud or two. It’s weak to Ice spells and strong against physical strikes, but it’s also vulnerable to a lot of Saboteur-induced inflictions. Once your defenses are fortified and the foe’s are debilitated, start going in for a more focused attack.
