MARK HUNTING - RANK VII

Your goal in this somewhat big side-quest is to defeat 45 Mark monsters.

Marks are the monsters that you are asked to hunt by Petitioners. By Looking at the individual Hunt Bill on the Noticeboard, you can determine the Mark's vital statistics, including its name and rank. There are eight different ranks of Marks I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, with I being the easiest and VIII being the hardest.

Generally Marks are much more powerful then your general foe you will face on the field for the area it is in.

49 110,842 The Salikawood; Sun-dappled Path Zammadria (Nalbina Town; Aerodrome) Rank VII
Reward Required Clan Rank
5,200 Gil, Stink Bombs, Putrid Liquid Brave Companion
Tactics Availability
Once you enter the Salikawood do not kill a single foe until you reach the Sun-dappled Path. During the battle you will be aided by Krjin the Vieara so start by casting Dispel and Slow on the Mark. From there attack with Holy or Holy-imbuned weapons. When it reaches 50% health where it will cast Growing Threat which will double its level plus it will start using Putrid Breath, which can cause more than 10 different status ailments. After you defeat Judge Bergan
Gilgamesh Priority Petition
Level HP Location Petitioner  
42 64,325 Lhusu Mines; Tasche Span Mountblanc (Rabanastre; Clan Hall)) Rank VII
Reward Required Clan Rank
10,000 Gil, Masamune Brave Companion
Tactics Availability
This is one interesting Mark with two battles and the option to steal up to 10 items over the two battles. You can steal after 20% of his health is depleted so make sure to steal as this is the only time you can get the Genji gear (he will pass a comment on your performance after each 20% so you can tell when to steal (see 'Items to Steal' table)).

For the first battle, cast Slow on Gilgames, then focus on Enkidu: Cast Sleep followed by Oil and then Firaga (or Ardour) repeatedly. Once defeated carry on attacking Gilgamesh with non-elemental attacks. When his HP reaches 20% he will throw a Paling and Magick Shield which will make your attacks worthless. At this point concentrate on healing yourself until they fade. Then just defeat him.

To finish off what you started you need to make your way to Site 7 but you need the Site 11 Key which is located on the ledge to the right of the Fallen Bhujerban in the north-west of the Phon Coast Hunters' Camp (only after you've defeated Antlion). It is a good idea to level up your characters and to make sure they have an odd level and that is not divisible by 3.

Once you are ready head back to Site 9 and unlock the Wrought Iron Gate. From there follow the tunnels round to ht enorth until you reach the Gate Switchboard in the north-west corner. Use it, then head east, all the way to the Staging Area where there is a Save Crystal. Enter Site 7 to face the duo for the final time.

Use the same tactics as last time (minus the Slow). Once Enkidu is out of the way, regularly use Dispel on Gilgamesh and cast positive status effects on your team to make the battle easier. Make sure you have Protect and Bubble on all the party to reduce the chance of being wiped oit by the Monarch Sword attack which he will unleash once he reaches 20% HP.

When Deathgaze appears, you'll receive a message that it's attacking the ship so volunteer to fight it nd go up to the Air Deck.

Just keep on attacking it and when it hits 20% HP it will speed up and concentrate on physical attacks so keep on top with the Slow and Blind Magicks on it. After you leave Barheim Passage and return to Rabanastre

This Mark will only appear if there is a snowstorm so just go back and forth until one occurs. Equip all characters with ranged weapons to keep your distance and regularly cast Reflectga on your party to bounce its Magick. You should also use Dispel and Slow. It's particularly weak against Lightning, so let let rip with Reflected Thundaga or Lightning Arrows if you have them. After you leave Barheim Passage and return to Rabanastre
