Final Fantasy XIII - Missions Part 3



Mission 33 - A Parentís Pledge
Mark Adamanchelid
Stone Location Archylte Steppe - Central Expanse
Mark Location Archylte Steppe - Eastern Tors
Prerequisite Clear Mission 30
Reward White Cape
Secondary Reward Bomb Shell x 5

Again, start with the usual buffs -- Protect, Bravery, Faith and Haste then switch to Safe Subversion (SAB/SAB/MED) or Infiltration (SAB/SAB/SAB). Stick the mark with Deprotect, Deshell, Imperil, Curse, and Slow. Stagger with Relentless Assault (COM/RAV/RAV), build gauge to about 500%, and beat down with Cerberus (COM/COM/COM). Heal with Salvation (MED/MED/MED).

Mission 34 - Zenobia, the Butcher
Mark Zenobia
Stone Location Archylte Steppe - Way of the Ancients
Mark Location Archylte Steppe - Haerii Archaeopolis
Prerequisite Clear Mission 30
Reward Hermes Sandals
Secondary Reward Bomb Core x 7

Well nice intro, but she doesn't stand much of a chance against you. Cast Protect (or Protectra if you have it), Bravery (Bravera if available), then switch to Infiltration (SAB/SAB/SAB), stick the Tonberry with Deshell, Deprotect, Imperil, and Poison -- Poison is especially effective; it sucks the mark's HP dry pretty quick. Follow through with attacks and spells of your own to speed up the killing process.

Mission 35 - The Road Less Traveled
Mark Gurangatch
Stone Location Faultwarrens - Truthseeker's Rise
Mark Location Faultwarrens - Primeval Crossroads
Reward Witch's Bracelet
Secondary Reward Bomb Shell x 6

Not much of a challenge; it has little HP (just a little over 24200). Stick the mark with Imperil and switch to Tri-disaster (RAV/RAV/RAV) to stagger. Kill it however you want afterwards.

Mission 36 - Dark Deliverance
Mark Amam
Stone Location Faultwarrens - Primeval Crossroads
Mark Location Faultwarrens - A Dance of Shadow
Prerequisite Clear Mission 35
Reward Uraninite
Secondary Reward Bomb Shell x 6

Two Amams this time. Pop a Deceptisol for preemptive strike. Stagger targets and kill. Accursed Breath inflicts Curse by the way but that's not really an issue.

Mission 37 - Dying of the Light
Mark Rafflesia
Stone Location Faultwarrens - Primeval Crossroads
Mark Location Faultwarrens - A Dance of Light
Prerequisite Clear Mission 35
Reward Star Pendant
Secondary Reward Bomb Shell x 5

Four flowers that absorb 1000+ health from your characters constantly. Putting in a Sentinel helps turn its attention away from your other two characters. Cast Shell and Faith then shift to Tri-disaster (RAV/RAV/RAV) and spam Firaga to kill the targets off quickly. A healing paradigm like Combat Cinic (SEN/MED/MED) should keep your health up easily.

Mission 38 - Moonlit Madness
Mark Verdelet
Stone Location Faultwarrens - A Dance of Shadow
Mark Location Faultwarrens - Via Lunae
Prerequisite Clear Mission 36
Reward Diamond Bangle
Secondary Reward Bomb Shell x 5

These things shouldn't be that big of a problem now as your characters are strong enough to absorb their attacks and dish out devastating amounts of damage. Four Verdelets await you here. Buff yourself with Shell and silence all the monsters with a shot of Fogga. Beat them all down however you please afterward.

Mission 39 - Seeing Stars
Mark Ochu
Stone Location Faultwarrens - A Dance of Shadow/Light
Mark Location Faultwarrens - Via Stellarum
Prerequisite Clear Mission 36 or 37
Reward Siltstone Ring
Secondary Reward Moonblossom Seed x 2

This one is joined by Microchus. Start by having a Synergist bestow Veil, Faith, Haste, Protect and Shell. A Saboteur should stick Deprotect and Deshell. After that, shift to Tri-disaster (RAV/RAV/RAV) and spam Firaga until the mark staggers then continue burning it. Avoid casting water as Ochu absorbs it. It can also inflict Poison as well as summon additional Microchu minions with its Seed Dispenser attack.

Mission 40 - Solar Power
Mark Verdelet
Stone Location Faultwarrens - A Dance of Light
Mark Location Faultwarrens - Via Solis
Prerequisite Clear Mission 37
Reward Zealotís Amulet
Secondary Reward Bomb Shell x 5

There are only 2 Verdelets this time, but they will start summoning friends right away, so pop a Deceptisol and focus your attacks on the one that's calling for backup to interrupt it. Take care of the other one afterwards.

Mission 41 - Gaian Grudge
Mark Tonberry Trio
Stone Location Faultwarrens - Via Lunae
Mark Location Faultwarrens - Gaian Path
Prerequisite Clear Mission 38
Reward Doctorís Code
Secondary Reward Tonberry Figurine

Pop a Deceptisol to initiate a preemptive strike then stagger all 3 targets with a single Blitz attack or any other area spell. Once staggered, keep up the Blitz onslaught, or you can also take them out one at a time with the Cerberus (COM/COM/COM) paradigm.
.

Mission 42 - Antihero
Mark Borgbear Hero
Stone Location Faultwarrens - Via Lunae/Via Stellarum
Mark Location Faultwarrens - Salamandrine Path
Prerequisite Clear Mission 38 or 39
Reward Witch's Bracelet
Secondary Reward Bomb Core x 7

This creature is a powered up version of the Goblin Chieftain and it is joined by 4 Borgbears. Cast Protect and Faith on yourself then spam the minions with fire spells until they stagger and die. The mark can cast buffs on its henchmen so watch out for that. When the minor dudes are dead, quickly stagger the Hero and switch to Cerberus (COM/COM/COM) for a quick kill.

Mission 43 - The Hero Never Dies
Mark Borgbear Hero
Stone Location Faultwarrens - Via Stellarum/Via Solis
Mark Location Faultwarrens - Sylphid Path
Prerequisite Clear Mission 39 or 40
Reward Speed Sash
Secondary Reward Bomb Core x 7

He's accompanied by a variety of minions this time around -- Borgbears, Munchkin Maestro, and Goblin Chieftain. Cast Protect and Faith on yourself then spam the minions with fire spells until they stagger and die. The mark can cast buffs on its henchmen so watch out for that. When the minor dudes are dead, quickly stagger the Hero and switch to Cerberus (COM/COM/COM) for a quick kill.

Mission 44 - The Old Ones Go To Rust
Mark Corrosive Custard
Stone Location Faultwarrens - Via Solis
Mark Location Faultwarrens Ė Nereid Path
Prerequisite Clear Mission 40
Reward Generalís Belt
Secondary Reward Bomb Shell x 7

Here we have the mark and two Monstrous Flans. Cast Shell, Faith and Haste on yourself then toss a Librascope. Stick with Relentless Assault (COM/RAV/RAV) and Tri-disaster (RAV/RAV/RAV), working diligently to stagger and then eliminate the pair of minions. With Libra, your characters will automatically use the optimal magic spells on the flans. As for the custard, it loves to use Quake which hits your entire party. Stick Deshell on it with your Saboteur before spamming Thundaga while Faith is active. This thing has over 2.6 million HP so beating it might take a while.

Mission 45 - Emergent Evolution
Mark Neochu
Stone Location Faultwarrens - Gaian Path
Mark Location Faultwarrens - Titan's Throne
Prerequisite Clear Mission 41
Reward Hunterís Friend
Secondary Reward Moonblossom Seed x 3

Set Attrition (SAB/SEN/MED) as your default paradigm, then make Vanille your party leader. When the battle starts, Vanille should spam Death, while Snow sticks to Mediguard. Have your Medic heal Snow when his HP drops low. This technique is cheap but it works, especially if you're gunning for the l'Cie Paragon trophy.

Mission 46 - On Silent Wings
Mark Zirnitra
Stone Location Faultwarrens - Salamandrine Path
Mark Location Faultwarrens - Titan's Throne
Prerequisite Clear Mission 42
Reward Gilgamesh Inc Shop Card
Secondary Reward Bomb Core x 10

Synergists should put up Veil, Faith, Haste, Protect and Shell. Though Veil and Haste are your top priority. Or better yet use those buff shrouds you have. Zinitra's spit inflicts Slow and Poison. Your Saboteurs should stick Deshell,Deprotect, and Imperil.Use Libra if you haven't already done so. This allows your charaters to automatically use the optimal spells against the boss. Use Relentless Assault (COM/RAV/RAV) to stagger, build the gauge and switch to Cerberus (COM/COM/COM) for some massive damage. Heal with Salvation (MED/MED/MED) when needed.

Mission 47 - Unfocused Rage
Mark Raktavija
Stone Location Faultwarrens - Salamandrine Path
Mark Location Faultwarrens - Titan's Throne
Prerequisite Clear Mission 42
Reward Mnar Stone
Secondary Reward Bomb Core x 10

Synergists should put up Shell right away, while Saboteurs stick Imperil, Pain and Slow. The mark has an attack called Multicast that deals a ton of damage since it hits your entire party multiple times. Heal with Salvation (MED/MED/MED) immediately afterward. This thing has over 2 million HPs and is resistant to everything at least until the shield comes off on stagger. Work on filling the chain gauge using Relentless Assault (COM/RAV/RAV) then switch to Cerberus (COM/COM/COM) or Tri-disaster (RAV/RAV/RAV) once staggered. If you get lazy, switch to Attrition (SAB/SEN/MED) and have Vanille spam Death until you insta-kill the monster.

Mission 48 - The Abyss Stares Back
Mark Verdelet
Stone Location Faultwarrens - Sylphid Path
Mark Location Faultwarrens - Titan's Throne
Prerequisite Clear Mission 43
Reward Twenty-Sided Die
Secondary Reward Bomb Shell x 10

Easy-peasy. If your characters are well-trained, a single Blitz attack from a Commando can kill all 3 Verdelets.
