Moogle : To plant the ibushi shinai, all you have to do is trade it to the ground near a fallen fiend. You'll get a reward that matches the amount of malice absorbed, kupo!
Moogle : When you plant the ibushi shinai into the ground, all malice absorbed inside will be purified by the land, kupo!
Obtained: Ibushi shinai
