The soul defines existence. Its expression is found in feeling, choice, and action. Entreat with the Undying Attacus, whose blade is hate made manifest, and become one with life’s circle again.

Location

Obviously this is a desirable mission in the sense that its reward is the Genji Glove… Take whatever route you want to get to the stone, and once you get there you will teleport in to the next area - which should be familiar to you by now! Use the save point ahead, then use your shrouds, and finally head into the clearing…

Strategy

Prepare for a long drawn-out battle; the mark you’re about to face has 9,135,000 HP! Pop some buff shrouds prior to battle and set Countermeasure (SAB/SAB/SEN) as your default paradigm. This should draw Attacus’ attention to your Sentinel while your Saboteurs stick Slow, Curse, Deshell and Deprotect. Shift to this paradigm whenever you need to recast debuffs on your target. Use Relentless Assault (COM/RAV/RAV) and Tri-disaster (RAV/RAV/RAV) to build the chain gauge. Switch to Combat Clinic (SEN/MED/MED) if you need to heal. Once the mark staggers, use Relentless Assault to build the gauge up to 500% then shift to Cerberus (COM/COM/COM) for massive damage. This battle isn’t hard it just takes time. Rinse/repeat until the battle ends.
