These are the ones that I’ve missed so don’t fret and think that these are super rare enemies or something cuz there’s every chance you’ve already come across them!
Flangonzola: This was found in sunny weather in The Archylte Steppe (Plains of Eternity) near the vicinity of the red flowers close to Long Gui. It’s a white flan and it’s considered a rare monster. Nothing else much to say about it since the group that I ran into went down pretty fast. ^^
I enabled Battlemania and Encounter Master to get it. However, out of the billions of monsters I fought in the area, I only found the Flangonzola twice.
Malebranche:I found this thing in stormy weather in The Archylte Steppe (Clearwater Marshes) near the far west end close to the wide chasm. Looks like a brown-coloured Wladislaus. This thing can be trouble since its attacks can deal strong physical damage and remove the buffs on a party member. It also has some crazy attacks that can chop down a member’s life with wound damage by a great deal. What’s worse is that it slaps on Slow as well.
Ugh. I totally went into this unprepared but luckily I had a Sentinel in 2 of my paradigms. Didn’t know it was weak to magic and kept relying on my COMs. XD Managed to 5-star the fight somehow though. ^^ Got no spoils though. 😦
Hmm. It seems annoyingly rare. I’ve gone through about 10+ battles already and it has yet to show up again. I even managed to run across a Fomoire while waiting for Malebranche to appear. 😛
Swampmonk: For some reason, I’ve never found this thing before. Apparently, it’s in the marshes of the Steppe as well and shows up during rainy weather. Ah. Found it. I got a group of 3 with a Mewmao thrown in. Of course, I took out the cat first. And while the monks went down fast, they DO have a skill called Power Spritz that bestow them with a crap ton of buffs. Since my party of pretty high levelled, it wasn’t much of an issue. ^^
Anyway, I ran into some to the northern part of the middle area of the Clearwater Marshes. Actually, it seems to appear quite a bit around the patch of dry land close to the middle too. :O
Tezcatlipoca: BAWWW. Missed this bugger on my trip through the final dungeon. Now I gotta redo the entire thing again JUST for it. Sigh.
Is it just me or do I not have to touch as many blocks on a second pass through this dungeon? Took me a while to realize this though. ^^;
Edit: FINALLY! DONE WITH THIS DAMN SIDEQUEST!
Went to collect my new Fragment Skill from the Mystic at Serendipity. When I went to turn on Field Killer, I saw this:
I think this really only affects players doing the 100 consecutive GREAT!s thing.
Ooh. I unlocked Mobile Mog a while back but never went to get it. ^^; Whee! *throws the moogle around Academia 4XX and watches the crowds of people follow it wherever it goes! XD*
