I couldn't miss the chance to practice my drawing!
Hero on the Halfshell is a guildhest in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Set in Central Thanalan at the Sil'dih Excavation Site, its purpose is to teach how control enemies in a non-lethal manner by abstaining from killing it and having the tank herd them. In this case, the objective is to sedate a noble's gil turtle that was absconded by bandits.
TThe tank must hold the attention of the turtle, while the other party members eliminate the bandits (who will heal any damage to the turtle) and any efts that crawl out of the stream. With them gone, the turtle must be lowered to around 50% health, at which point the next objective begins. A fire sprite will appear in the area and must be slain for its core, which is used to light special herbs that will lull the turtle to sleep. Once the herbs are ignited and the turtle is guided to it by the tank, it falls asleep and the Guildhest is completed. Killing the Gil Turtle will cause the Guildhest to fail, a common hurdle for newer players not paying attention to the instructions.
