Final Fantasy 16: Usher to the Underworld Hunt Location and Rewards (FF16)

Send him straight back to hell

In the Titan’s Wake, a creature has risen from some infernal, unknown depth. This crystal giant haunts the Gilded Path, casting all in shades of aetheric blue. And few who cross its path survive to tell the tale. For travelers, this is the Usher to the Underworld. Here’s how to find it in Final Fantasy 16 and all the rewards you’ll get for killing it.

Final Fantasy 16: Usher to the Underworld Hunt Location and Rewards (FF16)

As the world slowly falls apart, new monsters have come to terrorize the realm. Such is the case for the Usher to the Underworld, who’s come to Dhalmekia. And the only person who can send it right back into perdition is Clive. Here’s how to find the Usher to the Underworld:

  • Select Southern Dhalmekia on the world map (Kretov).
  • Head towards Titans Wake, north pass.

From Kretov in Southern Dhalmekia, head beneath the Fallen arch and across two bridges. From there, you’ll almost immediately get a cutscene with Thanatos, the Usher to the Underworld. This Rank-A Mark is Level 42 and absolutely adores spamming special moves. Your best bet is to keep it staggered. I find Shiva’s Diamond Dust is exceptionally useful for this.
