I long for the release of crystal sleep. Perhaps when I wake the world will be a better place. I should hurry and destroy the ambling bellows raising havoc on the steppe’s northern highplain.
Ambling Bellows is a mark in Final Fantasy XIII, found in Taejin’s Tower, as part of both Mission 22 and Mission 10. Similar to the related Boxed Phalanx enemy, it can call and power up the Cryptos, and is a formidable foe on its own as well. It will call more Cryptoses if they are all destroyed, but will not if one still remains.
A quick way to defeat it is to gain a Preemptive Strike, which puts the chain gauge at almost full. A single strike should be enough to Stagger it, whereupon it can be launched and quickly defeated. Failing this, you could fight until its HP is low, and then summon an Eidolon, filling your health and allowing the monster to be more easily defeated.
