Trial Mode - Stages 41 to 50
Tips on how to complete each of the Stages and a list of the items that can be picked up from treasure chests or stolen from the enemies. Note that you need to have Diamond Armlet equipped in order to obtain the treasure listed. Opening the treasure chest without a Diamond Armlet will result in you receiving consumable and expendable items.
Orthros, White Mousse (x3)
This battle is a similar to two of your previous fights – the one against Orthros during Hunt 35: Crime and Punishment and the fight against White Mousse during Hunt 06: Lost in the Pudding. All of the enemies are flans which make them difficult to take down with regular attacks so focus on using Magick attacks instead. Use Fire-based Magicks to defeat them the fastest.
Cúchulainn, Foobar (x4)
This battle is similar to the battle against Cúchulainn in the Garamsythe Waterway when you defeat him to obtain him as an optional Esper. The most difficult aspect of the fight is dealing with the automatic HP drain effect that is cast on all of your party members. Have your team members ready to cast a ton of healing spells and be ready to over-heal (using spells such as Curaga, Curaja and Renew when required).
This battle is against regular Deathclaw enemies which are found in the Ridorana Cataract. They do not require a complicated strategy to defeat.
You can make a Pallicant enemy appear by traveling to the end of the map where the treasure chests are located.
Antlion, Killer Mantis (x4)
This battle is similar to the one against the Antlion that you face during Hunt 38: Antlion Infestation. It can potentially inflict the Disable status effect on your party members so use Black Belts, Ribbon and casts of Esuna Magick to prevent this. Also note that Antlion will use Cannibalize on the Killer Mantis enemies around it in order to regain health so you should focus on defeating the Killer Mantis enemies first.
Stolen from Antlion:
- Rare: Dragon Shield
Vishno, Brainpan (x2), Deidar (x2)
Vishno will appear after all of the Brainpan and Deidar enemies have been defeated. Crusader enemies will spawn once Vishno has spawned. All of the enemies in this Stage are weak to Holy Magick.
Poached from Brainpan:
- Rare: Runeblade
Poached from Deidar:
- Rare: Sweep
This battle is against two regular, run of the mill Aeronites. Switch to party members who can use ranged attacks or Magick, or alternatively, have your melee party members switch to using the Telekinesis Technick. Aeronites are weak to Thunder, Thundara and Thundaga.
Stolen or Poached:
- Common: Eksir Berries
Tower, Zombie Warlocks
This battle is against Tower, a golem-type enemy, that can be found at the top of the Pharos of Ridorana. The Zombie Warlocks will continue to spawn for the duration of the fight until you defeat Tower. Tower is weak to Dark Magick (and absorbs Holy Magick) whereas the Zombie Warlocks are weak to Holy Magick (and absorbs Dark Magick).
- Assassin's Arrows
Hashmal, Reaver (x2)
This battle is similar to the battle against Hashmal at the top of the Pharos of Ridorana. You do not have to defeat the two Reaver enemies but the battle is easier if you defeat them first. This battle does not require any complex strategy. You can use the Float spell to reduce the amount of damage done by Hashmal as most of its attacks are Earth-based.
Poached from Reaver:
- Rare: Greataxe
Famfrit, Abaddon (x3)
This battle is similar to the battle against Famfrit in the Womb of the Sun-cryst at the top of the Pharos at Ridorana – Third Ascent. During the story mode, this battle takes place during a battle with Doctor Cid, but this battle will just be focused on the Esper itself.
