Mission 41 - Gaian Grudge
Cie'th Stone Location: Faultwarrens - Via Lunae
Mark Location: Faultwarrens - Gaian Path
Unlock Condition: Complete Mission 38
Reward: Doctor's Code
Secondary Reward: Tonberry Figurine
This trial pits you against three Tonberries, making it an extremely tough battle. (Hehe!) Your characters should have progressed far into Level 4 of their recommended roles, and their weapons should be upgraded to a high standard. Even then, this battle may prove to be too tough. (No joke, it actually says this!) Tonberries use Grudge attacks that cause even greater damage as they escalate in scale, and they're fully healed after performing each one.
A pre-emptive strike is essential, and is possible (though tricky) through a stealthy approach. Try to even the odds a little by using Shrouds beforehand. Aegisol and Fortisol will enable you to enter the battle with the Relentless Assault Paradigm. With a surprise attack, you should be able to kill two Tonberries fairly quickly.
The final Tonberry may be preparing a second (or even third) Grudge attack by the time it's companions fall. Your best bet is to opt for an all-out assault, slaying it as quickly as you possibly can.
An alternative strategy is to make Vanille your party leader. Equip her with the Belladonna Wand and repeatedly cast Death on the Tonberries. (That sounds like fun! - Me)
