No Encounters Auto-Ability
Tips and Tricks

Adding the No Encounters auto-ability to one of your character’s equipped armor will allow you to avoid random fiend encounters as you move about through Spira. You only need to have the ability on one of your characters, not all three, so you only need to customize one piece of the No Encounter Armor which you can hold on to for the remainder of the game.

This auto-ability is extremely important for a number of the side quests. It also makes completing the end game content much easier and faster and is a necessity for the later stages of the game.

There are a few ways to obtain the No Encounters auto-ability which are listed below.

  1. Customizing armor using Purifying Salt (easiest method)
  2. Dropped armor from a Ghost enemy in the Cavern of Stolen Fayth
  3. Dropped weapon from Geosgaeno at Baaj Temple
  4. Stolen from Abaddons or Hornets at the Monster Arena

As mentioned above, the easiest method is to find and capture the Drake-type enemies located throughout Spira. You will need a minimum of four of each.
