Enemy Encounters

Name Notes
Varcolaci Evades attacks; inflicts Poison but fairly weak overall.
Taxim A weaker version of the Vampire but with "normal" reaction to physical damage.
Vampire Weak to all elements but physical damage halved; huge HP pool and can cast Daze and Deprotect.
Vetala Massive damage resistance (though reduced when Staggered); inflicts many status ailments; high HP.
Chonchon Low HP but usually encountered in swarms; cannot be Provoked and inflicts Poison and Pain.
Seeker Weak against all elements but physical damage halved; has fairly powerful attacks but easily destroyed.

Save at the save point (left) and Hope creeps up on a Vampire (right).

There are no treasures in this first area so jog through the ravine, killing enemies along the way. A Vampire and a couple of Taxims can be seen here - Taxims are just weaker versions of Vampires and shouldn’t pose any trouble. Keep running to the Village Proper.

Six people, from very different backgrounds, get thrown together in a series of tumultuous events. A Pulse fal'Cie (a demi-god) has been found in the seaside town of Bodhum, a place where the fates of everyone converge and the discovery sets in motion a chain of events that will change the world forever. An innocent fireworks display in the town soon turns nasty when government soldiers storm the peaceful celebration and commit everyone to the Purge (sending individuals "contaminated" by the Pulse fal'Cie into exile). This is where your story and legend begins. Can you fight fate?
