Chapter 5 - The Gapra Whitewood

Chapter 5 - The Gapra Whitewood

Bioweapon Research Site D

You are now entering a top secret research facility, slightly akin to Jurassic Park, complete with special pens for the most dangerous creatures. A forcefield surrounds each pen and won’t deactivate until all perceived threats in the vicinity are removed. If you wish to access an area blocked by a forcefield, look for any enemies surrounding it and dispatch them to proceed.

Silver Lobos will make an entrance in the first zone and they can inflict Poison on your team. Status ailments are cured after battle so it is better to save Antidotes and push for a quick finish when dealing with these lupines. Crawlers are also nothing to worry about, especially if you blast them with Fire attacks. If you find yourself running low on Antidotes, you can pick up 6x Antidotes in a Sphere on the right side as you pass through, guarded by some Crawlers.

Kill the threats to remove the barriers blocking your progress.

Kill the last few enemies and you will find yourself locked in by barriers. A Feral Behemoth launches itself at you while you’re still busy trying to find a way out. Well, it looks like the only way out is through the Behemoth. Set upon it with Slash & Burn, then Dualcasting to Stagger then return to Slash & Burn to make use of Launch and the juggle technique to stop it causing any more mischief. Leave the area after the battle by climbing up what looks like a crystal plant.
