Hunt 21: Get My Stuff Back!
Vyraal - Rank V
This Hunt can be completed any time after you have gone through the Draklor Laboratory after reaching the Imperial City of Archades. You can pick up the Bill in the Whitecap tavern in the Port of Balfonheim.
The Viera Wayfarer is located in the Whitecap tavern in the Port of Balfonheim. She is sitting on the windowsill on the far side of the bar.
Head north out of Port of Balfonheim into the Cerobi Steppe. The Vyraal is located in the Northsward zone, the northeastern portion of the map. Travel through South Liavell Hills, through the North Liavell Hills, north into Feddik River and north one more time into The Northsward.
Make sure that you set up a Dispel Gambit to remove Vyraal’s Haste buff which it will automatically start the battle off with.
Vyraal will flee the battle once it’s HP gets too low. It will then recast Haste on itself and heal itself if it gets too far away, so leave your Dispel Gambit active for the duration of the fight, and reengage Vyraal again to finish it off.
It will start to resist damage more effectively as its HP gets lower, but beside that and the fact that it runs away from you once, this is a fairly standard battle that should not cause too much trouble.
A video of the battle in the Zodiac Age version is included below:
You will receive a Viera Rucksack once the battle is over. Return to the Whitecap tavern in Balfonheim Port and speak to the Viera Wayfarer again. She will take back the Rucksack and give you the rewards for completing this quest which includes 3,500 gil, a Halberd and a Crystal Shield. She will also give you a Dragon Scale that she finds in the bottom of the bag which is used to complete the Hell Wyrm side quest (which should not be attempted until you are between level 50-60).
