Note: Missions 21 – 26 are required story missions and are impossible to miss as you ascend Taejin's Tower.
Cie'th Stone location: Taejin's Tower – Fifth Tier
Mark location: Taejin's Tower – Fifth Tier
Reward: Moonblossom Seed (x6)
Mushussu itself isn’t tough, but there are a couple of Yakshinis acting as backup that can debuff your team and cause some serious hurt – they should probably be your initial targets. Mushussu is resistant or immune to most elemental spells, so non-elemental offense (physical or magical) is the best strategy. A balanced party with a strong offense and a healer/buffer is the ideal team.
Cie'th Stone location: Taejin's Tower – The Cloven Spire
Mark location: Taejin's Tower – Ground Tier
Reward: Blaze Ring
This where things get a lot harder. Mithridates is the “hidden” hunt of the Tower – in order to encounter it, you’ll need to defeat all the other marks and set up the central elevator so that it can run from the tower apex to the bottom floor. Once that’s taken care of, run the elevator from the top to the bottom and you’ll encounter Mithridates immediately upon stepping outside.
Mithridates is tough, to boot. He’s nearly impossible to stagger and can hit you with poison, numerous debuffs, and some very damaging spell attacks. A Synergist is must to have on hand for at least part of this fight to counter its debuffs, and a Medic or two are essential. You’ll want to Paradigm Shift regularly between focusing on recovery and attacking once your team can withstand a few more of Mithradates’s enchantments. He’s weak to Fire, Wind, Ice, and Water elements, so keep those spells coming – just don’t go too deep into the red, because he can easily go in for the kill.
Cie'th Stone location: Oerba – Village Proper (Waystone)
Mark location: Oerba – Village Proper
Reward: Giant's Glove
Ceratosaurs aren’t terribly difficult enemies – they’re weak to Fire and Earth and don’t have too much HP, though staggering them’s a little tough. Still, there are a lot of them here, so use spells and strikes with a large area of effect to hit as many of them at once as you can.
Cie'th Stone location: Mah'habara – Maw of the Abyss
Mark location: Taejin's Tower – The Palisades
You’ll essentially have to fight the Juggernaut twice for this mission: once to access the Cie'th stone (it’s guarded by a tough enemy similar to the mark), and once to actually complete the mission. The Juggernaut has heavy defenses and hits hard with fire attacks, so be sure to have a Synergist on hand to set up appropriate elemental protection. Fortunately, its stagger percentage is pretty low. Commando skills won’t work too well initially, so get your Ravagers in, stagger him, then Shift back in a melee attacker or two to go in for the launcher.
Cie'th Stone location: Archylte Steppe – The Haerii Oldroad (near the ring of Cie'th Stones)
Mark location: Mah'habara – Abandoned Dig
Another red barrier mission. You can only access the area where this mission sits on Chocobo-back – and there are many other fights, including the Titan quests, lying just behind this barrier. But you’ll have to tread back to Mah'habara first… and trek a long ways in to find Syphax’s lair.
This can be a hard fight – not due to any inherent strength of the enemies (they’re pretty weak), but because there are just so damn many of them – and they keep on coming! You’ll have to fell over thirty or forty of the smaller bat-like beasties before Syphax will even turn up, and they are proof that strength lies in numbers. Keep a Medic on hand to make sure they don’t suck out too much of your HP. Syphax will reveal itself once enough of its underlings have been decimated, and while he has a decent-sized HP buffer, he also had a fairly low stagger percentage and a weakness to wind elemental attacks.
