Once you accept the hunt from Montblanc in the Clan Hall, talk to Zammadria in the Nalbina’s aerodrome and then you will need to head off to Salikawood. As mentioned in the game, Carrot is shy, meaning if you kill any enemies in the Salikawood before encountering it, then you will not find her at all. That means you will either have to turn off all Gambits until you reach Sun-dappled Path or hold down the flee button until you get there.
You will find that this Malboro can put up quite a challenge, as it has access to skills like Time Requiem (inflicts Stop), Putrid Breath (inflicts most ailments), Hero’s March (casts Protect/Shell/Haste/Bravery/Faith) and Purify (cures any ailments cast on her). In fact, it may be better to wait until a little later in the game to do this hunt, as Carrot is also very strong. She will use Growing Threat when her health gets to half or so, doubling her level and increasing her attack power/defense. Having a healthy supply of Remedies (or even a Ribbon if you wait until much later) and Dispel on a Gambit to get rid of its statuses will make this fight a little easier.
Enter an era of war within the world of Ivalice. The small kingdom of Dalmasca, conquered by the Archadian Empire, is left in ruin and uncertainty. Princess Ashe, the one and only heir to the throne, devotes herself to the resistance to liberate her country. Vaan, a young man who lost his family in the war, dreams of flying freely in the skies. In a fight for freedom and fallen royalty, join these unlikely allies and their companions as they embark on a heroic adventure to free their homeland.
