Who designed this place? It’s a maze of dead ends! How am I supposed to find the ambling bellows? Knowing it’s in a twilight cavern doesn’t help much when I’m trapped in a maze of the blasted things! Curse my luck. I’m running out of time. I’d every intention of fulfilling my Focus, and now I’m going to end up a Cie’th!

Location

An Ambling Bellows is our next target, and it seems that it is located in the Twilit Cavern - check the map and you will see the location above - so loop around to the left path and head up to the cavern.

Strategy

As with the previous fight, concentrate on the Phalanx that is blocking the path before you take out the Hoplites, and then continue along the bridge to the other end, where you will spy an Ambling Bellows and some Hoplites. Interestingly enough, we are looking for an Ambling Bellows! Once you take out the Bellows the other mobs are easy - taking out the Bellows however, not so much. You need to concentrate upon staggering it, as you cannot really do decent damage to it until you get it staggered. The battle pays off 4,990 CP , and a Mission Complete - the mission delivering another key item, a Sorcerer’s Mark !
