Magnus is grinning from ear to ear.

— In-game description

Steps

  • Speak with Minfilia.
  • Speak with Magnus.
    ※Solo Duty will commence upon speaking with Magnus.
  • Speak with Minfilia.

Journal

  • Repairs to the Talos are complete, as are preparations for you voyage. Eager to enjoy the fruits of his labors, Magnus leaves with Thaffe and Jeryk for the Mount Biran Mines to perform a few final checks and plot your route to Nabaath Areng. He bids you join them when you are ready.
  • Before long, Minfilia will come face-to-face with the original Oracle–the real Minfilia. But despite her understandable trepidation, she assures you of her commitment to see her journey through to its end. With both Thancred and Urianger also ready to set off, you have only to speak with Magnus to proceed.
  • You board the trolley, but Minfilia quickly notes Urianger's failure to follow suit. He duly insists you continue without him, that he might inform Alphinaud and the others of your progress. After a short farewell, the Talos is set into motion, and the trolley begins racing down the tracks. The gate to Nabaath Areng opens wihtout incident, but an unwelcome sight awaits you on the other side–Ran'jit.
  • With a single blow, Ran'jit topples the trolley, sending you and the others tumbling in all directions. Struggling to her feet, Minfilia pleads with him to let you pass, but her words only serve to send him into a rage. He moves to strike her down, but is prevented by Thancred at the last moment. Eyes aflame, the Scion commands Minfilia to leave while he contends with Ran'jit. After a moment's hesitation you take Minfilia with you southward, the clang of steel ringing out behind you.
  • At long last, you have arrived at Nabaath Areng. Within awaits the Oracle. Minfilia steels herself as you press onward, still unsure how this reunion with her kindred spirit from the Source will end.

Walkthrough

  • In this solo duty, you will be fighting as Thancred.
  • As with the last Duty fight against them, Gukumatz will be untargetable throughout this fight.
  • General Ran'jit has access to circular and linear AOE attacks.
  • Gukumatz will occasionally inflict "Down for the Count" on you.
  • At 85%, Ran'jit will fuse with Gukumatz, gaining access to new attacks.
  • When the duty action Perfect Deception is available, use it to hide out of sight from Ran'jit. Be warned, however, that Thancred will suffer Fading Fast, a status that will result in a KO and a "Failed Duty" if not removed in time. To remove it, cast the Duty action "Shining Blade", the same specialty action button used to make yourself invisible.
  • Near the end of the fight, Perfect Deception will change to Souldeep Invisibility and Shining Blade will change to Leap of Faith respectively. Same pros and cons as the former, however Thancred will also suffer Vital Sign, which will reduce movement speed. Cast Leap of Faith to end the duty.

NOTE: I found it easier to trigger these if you come up and stand closer to Ran'jit, do it, look for the sparkle and glow about your character, then prepare to strike. Furthermore, this has a long cast of approximately 3 seconds that you may/may not have to hold the button to trigger-- it was all very touch-and-go getting it to respond.
