The Humbaba is a giant/behemoth-type enemy from Final Fantasy XII. It can be found in the Mosphoran Highwaste. Humbabas are fairly strong and often stay in pairs, so they can be rather difficult to defeat.


Bestiary Entry

Genus: Giant
Class: Behemoth


Page 1: Observations

"Being a fell creature, some calling it the 'Lord of the Beasts' for its vicious temperament and snarling, lightning-fast manner of attack. The working of its heart and lungs is specially adapted to the mountainous regions in which it dwells, enabling long, protracted combat without pause. The humbaba is a social creature, known to raise great howls in communication with others of its kind, thereby coordinating a pursuit, or warning of danger."

Page 2: A Researcher's Ramblings

"There's a legend, you see, which claims that if you were to crush the beastlord's horn, and steep it into a brew, you would know the tongue of beasts by the time you'd drunk a draft. Now, the legend doesn't say what exactly this 'beastlord' may be, so to ascertain the truth of the matter, experiments were performed in antiquity using the powdered horns of many a creature. If reports are true, they learned what is meant by the 'beastlord,' yet none remain to tell the tale, for all those who participated were transformed into fell humbabas, and were never seen again!"


There are four Humbaba on the far west section of Empyrean Way. An easy way to get Beastlord's Horns is to chain Worgens that are in Summit Path and Empyrean Way to the third level (giant gold coins). Once that is done one can go to Empyrean Way and eliminate Humbaba with the Break spell (as Stone does not break chains), all one needs to do to respawn the four Humbaba is move away from their spawn point and return to eliminate them once more.
