Final Fantasy XV is one of the most interesting games in the FF franchise.  The game takes place on the fictional world called Eos where everything is dominated by the empire of Niflheim, apart from the capital called Lucis.  Having said that, there are many amazing quests which are definitely very fun and reward to complete. One of them is related to killing a Giant Turtle called Adamantoise. Let's take a closer look at how to do it as fast as possible, without having to go through much trouble.

Adamtoise quest - Essentials

First, a little overview. Adamantoise is a giant turtle in Final Fantasy XV. It is located near the Hammerhead outpost, commonly referred to as the main hub in the game. 

Besides from just a random kill, this giant turtle is a part of a quest called "Let sleeping mountains lie". You can get it from Cindy who is located in Hammerhead. However, this quest is only available once you finish all other FFXV quests out there. 

During the quest itself, you will have to wake up the turtle first. After that, head out west and you`ll find a quest called "Lonely Rumblings in Longwythe". Before you do any of this though, make sure to have enough time, potions and patience in order to do the quest. It is definitely not advisable to be in a hurry because it can take pretty long, however, the reward is definitely worth it in the end.
