1 Head back to Ondore to move on to the next quest. You will begin somewhere in the Dalmasca Westersand.
2 There are map urns here that reveal the whole Ogir-Yensa/Nam-Yensa Sandseas. Head west for a cutscene with Vossler joining the party.
3 Keep to a west-moving path to reach the Nam-Yensa Sandsea.

1 | Ogir-Yensa, Land of the Urutan

The sandsea appears to be a naturally expansive desert which is home to the humanoid Urutan and their steeds, the fish-resembling Yensas. The Urutan are also good enemies to level up on.

2 | Map Urns for your Party

Traversing the Ogir-Yensa and Nam-Yensa Sandseas can be hard, especially since it is a land mass that's more expansive than even Dalmasca. Fortunately, there are map urns near the very entrance of the Ogir-Yensa Sandsea containing maps for both areas.

Nam-Yensa Story Walkthrough

4 Once you've managed to move through the massive expanse of the Ogir-Yensa, continue onwards to the Nam-Yensa Sandsea.
5 Continue moving on a westward course towards the Tomb of Raithwall.
6 You will be met with an optional quest featuring the Sandsea Moogle and a Rogue Urutan, who is asking for help fighting the 'Urutan Eater,' a titantoise.
7 Whether or not you help the Urutan, move along and enter the courtyard of the tomb, where you will fight another boss.

6 | The Urutan-Eater

The Urutan Eater is a rare species of titantoise that has been the sworn enemy of the Urutan for quite some time. The Rogue Urutan paid his life as price for asking for help in dealing with this monster. For more details about this unique monster, visit our FF12 Monsters list as well as our Side Quest section.

7 | The Rogue Urutan's Gift, A Flower

The Rogue Urutan is turned to dust by the Urutan Queen, and in his place, a desert flower is left to bloom, presumed by the Sandsea Moogle as his gift to Vaan's party. It would later prove useful when entering the Tomb of Raithwall.

Tomb of Raithwall Story Walkthrough

8 The Tomb can be found at the western end of the Nam-Yensa Sandsea.
9 Save your game when you are prompted to do so. You will be battling a boss, the Garuda.
10 After you defeat the Garuda, an ancient device--the first Way Point of the temple--activates inside the tomb.
11 Touch the device to get into the tomb. Prepare for another boss battle, this time against two Stone Sentinels.
12 You can defeat the first one if you are strong enough; otherwise, escape through the door. You will have to defeat the second one.
13 After the cutscene when you defeat the other Sentinel, you will be able to search for the Way Points and activate them.
14 Activate the Way Points to make your way to the next boss, the Esper, Belias the Gigas. He will be your first Esper, and you will also be able to unlock the Second License board.
15 Activate the new Way Point, then climb all the way upstairs. You will receive the Dawn Shard and move into the Light Cruiser Shiva.

9 | The Garuda, an Ancient Enemy

There are two Sentinels guarding the tomb; depending on your level, you can easily defeat them, or you could run away from one and defeat the other. We have more details about these Sentinels in our FF12 Boss Battles section.

14 | Your First Esper, the Gigas, Belias

Deep in the tomb, Vaan's party will face off with their first boss Esper, the Gigas, Belias. He is no walk in the park, but you can easily beat him if you've leveled up enough. Details and other information about this Esper (and others) is available in our FF12 Boss Battles section.

15 | Receiving The Dawn Shard

Vossler will betray Vaan and friends onboard the Light Cruiser. He will also be the boss to beat for this particular stage, details of which are explored in-depth in our FF12 Boss Battles section.

18 | The Explosion of the Dawn Shard

The greed of the humes knows no bounds, and they exploited the Dawn Shard--or rather, it's the other way around. The Shard's gathered Mist exploded within the Shiva, destroying everything in its path, including the whole Imperial battle fleet accompanying the downed cruiser.
