Dragon's Peak, also known as the Road to the Summit, is a location from Final Fantasy III found just to the east of Canaan. Bahamut is first encountered here, but is impossible to defeat at this stage. Once the Warriors of the Light rescue Desch from becoming the meal of Bahamut's offspring, and themselves in the process via jumping off Bahamut's nest, the Warriors can never climb the mountain to the summit again once they return here via ship or airship, at least in the Famicom version. It is recommended that the player farm the Rust Bird for Phoenix Downs before leaving.
Story[edit | edit source]
From the town of the Canaan, the Warriors of the Light head to the Dragon's Peak to look for Desch, a man who possesses the Mini spell and broke Salina's heart. On their way to the summit they are abducted by Bahamut, who plans to feed its spawn with them. At the dragon's nest, they meet Desch, who gives the heroes the Mini spell and flees from Bahamut alongside them, and joins them on their quest later.
