LANDMARK [Central Pit - Entrance]
Reward: 201 EXP, 114 AP, 36 SP

From the entrance of the Central Pit, bear left towards the elevator and descend to Level 1.

LOCATION [Central Pit - Level 1]
Reward: 63 EXP, 38 AP, 12 SP

Once down the elevator, expect to start running into Mechon again. Make sure to upgrade your skills to best take care of them, as the HP-heavy mechs can be a huge pain otherwise. Also take care not to engage too many of them in battle at once, and run away if you find yourself in over your head.

On this level, you'll also find a Mechon M64X defending a Wind Ether Deposit. Your call if you need the EXP and crystals or not, though after making your decision continue across the bridge towards the mechanism in the center of the pit. Take care to avoid the spinning blades which will push you towards enemies, or even knock you to your demise. Follow along to the otherside and cross the birdge into another pile of Mechon, beyond which is Personnel Lift 2. Take the lift down to Level 2

LANDMARK [Personnel Lift 2]
Reward: 205 EXP, 114AP, 36SP

LOCATION [Central Pit - Level 2]
Reward: 63 EXP, 38 AP, 12 SP

On Level 2, plenty more Mechon await, inlcuding a small group guarding a Fire Ether Deposit. After taking them out and snatching some crystals, again cross over to the center of the pit. Here, stacks of M67s guard the way through. Try and challenge them two at a time as you proceed, so when the big M82s show up, you won't be overwhelmed.

LANDMARK [Regulation Piston]
Reward: 209 EXP, 114 AP, 36 SP

If you like, you can take the bridge detour towards a Fire Ether Deposit. Otherwise, continue onto the pistol. Going immediately down will take you to Level 3, where some ether distractions await. After that, take it back up to the very top, then board another piston heading down. Cross the birdge and head towards Personal Lift 3.

LANDMARK [Personnel Lift 3]
Reward: 205 EXP, 114AP, 36SP

Take the lift down, where you'll need to now time your jumps on the metal platforms, going counter-clockwise direction around the machine. Do this until you arrive on the west side of the map, then follow the tuneel there towards a large elevator and get ready to take on XORD!
