How to find[edit | edit source]

Dustia in game.

Dustia appears in the Dalmasca Westersand the Corridor of Sand when at least one party member has less than 10% of their max HP remaining.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Dustia uses Dark magicks, Doom and Annul. Being an undead, Dustia can be defeated by using a Phoenix Down on it.

Dustia is good for speedy leveling because it offers over a thousand EXP, 3 LP, valuable drops and is chainable via the zone out glitch.

Level grinding[edit | edit source]

Dustia can be spawned as soon as the player can leave Rabanastre and Phoenix Downs can be bought from the merchant right outside Nalbina Fortress, past the Estersand once the Sunstone has been charged in the Giza Plains. Its loot sells for a lot of gil, allowing the player to buy more Phoenix Downs. There is risk involved, as Dustia casts Dark, which may kill the player's character if they do not defeat Dustia soon enough. The player can set the battle speed to slow from the configuration to slow down the rate Dustia uses Dark.

It is best to use Dustia for leveling at the beginning of the game because subsequent characters' levels are determined by, and approximately one or two levels higher than, Vaan's level.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The name comes from the Latin "dustia" which means dust, considering that it is found in a place full of sand.
