Mission Orders

Your inaugural mission as special operative of the Shantotto Empire requires you to attach enchanted seals to the protocrystals scattered across Vana'diel. Your new empress has stressed that she takes failure poorly.

Walkthrough

Shannotto has given you the task of fighting the 6 avatars but only requires 3. Her reward is gil. Killing 3 nets you 3k, Killing all 6 nets you 50k. You do not need to have the amount of fame to fight the Prime versions in order to trigger this mission. However, if you have the ability to use the Mini-forks, getting around to all the fights become a lot easier.

Once at the crystal you will click it, and get a very short cutscene. After that, click again and select "Sugar-coated Directive" to enter into the fight. The avatars are insanely weak. They spam their 2 hour which is also weak, but does get a tad stronger as the fight goes on.

Most jobs with /NIN could easily solo this. THF/NIN and COR/NIN had zero problem and killed in under 2 min, SMN in 2:13~ish. If you want overkill Shell 5 and bar elements reduce their 2 hour damage to nothing.

NOTE: The Avatars kind of get stuck on 1%. Don't know if its a glitch or what but they will die just keep hacking away, and they will soon die.

Once three or more have been killed, return to the ice pond in Qufim for your reward (3k-50k) and another cutscene and automatically start the next mission.

Not a bug

I don't think the 1% hp thing is a bug, I noticed it on all the fights myself. It seems to be more that they have to use 2hr 5 times before the battle will end, and my guess is they use it at every 20% health knocked off.

What gave me this idea is the wait before they'd use first and second 2hr, but then I use a WS for a nice chunk of their health and they 2hr 2 or 3 times in a row, with the battle ending right after the 5th 2hr each time.

I wish that had been on the walkthrough T.T

It makes sense, but it never occurred to me to do it, and I just did all 6 >.<
