Mission flowEdit

When assigned to Yoma suppression, warriors normally head straight for their destination. They travel on foot. On arrival they immediately begin a search for the Yoma that that is to be suppressed.

On completion, they instruct the client on payment to a Man in Black. The warrior then waits for the next assignment.[5]
