Bestiary Entry

Genus: Rank VI Mark
Classification: Behemoth

"A Tyrant among Behemoths, possessed of evil, red Eyes. Such who face it are consumed with fear upon meeting its Glare, their bodies becoming as Stone with their Terror. A Garif who fought the Catoblepas long ago and lived to tell of his Failure posted a Bill for this Mark."


Catoblepas can be found at the secret pathway from the Save Crystal in Zertinan Caverns. Before approaching Catoblepas, buff everyone, including War-chief Supinelu. As usual, Dispel Catoblepas's positive status and start attacking him. War-Chief Supinelu should be casting Magicks, but he can dish out a few physical attacks occasionally. Mind you, War-Chief's physical attacks are quite low, so do not expect him to be a powerhouse. Catoblepas's attacks are similar to Behemoth-kind enemies, only harder and faster - of the 3,000 - 3,500 damage type. His powerful blows can easily bring down one of your guys if they are not high leveled enough, so Bubble is a must to ensure survival. Also, try blinding him to ease up the battle. When his health hits critical, finish him quick since he will chain his attacks often.
