  • For this mission, you must go to Ghoyu's Reverie in West Sarutabaruta (S). You'll need to talk to the Allied Ensign at (I-9). Make sure your party is nearby you before you enter.

  • 1-6 party members are required to participate in this Campaign Operation
  • Can be soloed at high levels or easily trioed at 75 by any jobs that can cure. DRG/WHM, BLM/SCH and WHM/BLM easily took this down. A tank is not needed since the Trained Crab will focus most of its attention on the recruit for the majority of the battle.
    • The crab will, however, occasionally attack members of the party who pull hate.
  • Protect and Regen cannot be cast on the recruit, but he can be cured.
  • During the battle the recruit will waiver in his focus. You must wait for him to regain his focus, try harder at his training and fight with vigor before killing the crab.
  • The recruit can cast Cure on himself.
