Chapter 5 - The Gapra Whitewood

Chapter 5 - The Gapra Whitewood

Field Trial Range N

More light beams guide the way forward to the next waypoint. Move along the path and beware the pack of Lobos and Crawlers that prowl just ahead. Hopefully you have an adequate supply of Antidotes at this point but you should still treat them the same as before; killing the Crawlers first should be priority.

A solitary Barbed Specter protects an Edged Carbine (new weapon for Lightning which improves Magic but lessens Strength). The best way to deal with them is to start with a round of Slash & Burn then Dualcasting to Stagger. Once in Stagger, they flag very quickly and are not much of a threat.

Another Specter can be found a bit further along accompanied by two Crawlers. Finally, just before the exit stands a Feral Behemoth waiting for unsuspecting travellers to wander into its territory. This one is special; it holds a pass to the Magical Moments retail network accessible from Save Stations.
