Chapter 11.6 - Gran Pulse - Oerba

Chapter 11.6 - Gran Pulse - Oerba

The Ashensand

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.
