In this way you will be able to talk to the dealer of the Minimarket Verinas - Ravatogh to get new information. Now you will have to take your flying regalia and go to the volcanic area described by the merchant in search of a small landing strip which is much easier to spot during the day.

THE MAZE OF PYTHIOXUS.

Unlike the other dungeons, Pitioss doesn't have any enemies inside it but only a lot of puzzles that will put you to the test and where a millimeter precision in the jumps and control of Noctis is required. Below we show you a video to easily overcome this labyrinthine dungeon.

REWARDET: Black Hood. Powerful tool for Noctis that allows it to automatically dodge attacks.

HOW TO UNLOCK IT: Returning to Cape Caem via the Call Umbra option after starting Chapter 9, you will receive a call from Cindy who will entrust you with this quest.
WHAT TO DO: Initially you'll have to have a chat. Go back to Hammerhead and talk to Cindy. Move to the Longwythe rest area and talk to Dave. Talk to Dino in the restaurant to get a consumable. Finally, go to LONGWYTHE SASSO and interact with MONICA. Once you leave the area after the arrival of ADAMANTHART, the quest itself is over but you will unlock a hunt request to eliminate the huge beast. Then accept the request from TAKKA to HAMMERHEAD THE TURMENT OF LONGWYTHE and prepare for the most difficult challenge of the game. We recommend level 99 with all characters and a highly developed skill tree. The opponent has over 5,000,000 life points and is immune to Certain and Sacred Death. At first it will seem impossible to beat him and we assure you that it takes a very long time but with this strategy you should succeed without any particular problems:

-Use the Offensive Projection against his body parts, preferably the neck or an eye.

-Try to score an infinite aerial combo by tilting the directional lever in the direction of the target as soon as the previous combo ends.

-You must have unlocked the FREE PULSE ability in the Combat ability menu.

-If you should fall from above, simply use a forward projection before touching the ground to avoid damage.

Make a high stockpile of healing and insurance items to have the favor of the Invocations.

-You also unlock the IMPETO EUFORIZZANTE ability and use MAGITEK COMPLEX consumables to have unlimited PM so you can perform very durable air combos.

REWARD: 1000 ESP.

Below is a video that shows you another "trick" to eliminate the huge mountain even from a level below the maximum and without too much difficulty.
