XII - Eksir Berries

I've picked up some Eksir Berries in the Nam-Yensa and want to use them on the Garuda to weaken it. I'm wondering if I'll need them later in the game, or if Garuda is the only foe affected by them.

I believe so. I was surprised because I could've easily killed it without the berries anyway. The item description says something like, the Garuda doesn't like these or some such.

you fight a couple more garudas later in the game, but you won't have any problem with them then.

Garudas and Garuda-Edis will be generic fiends later in game at some location I can't remember right now. You can you the berries on them as well although it will be most useful outside the Tomb of Raithwal.

So I can get more berries later? That's good to know. I want to be very careful with my items this time around so I don't accidentally miss any useful Bazaar creations.

For the Garuda I'm thinking of using Penelo and Ashe to cast Dark/Cure, Fran use her bow and Vossler to use Telekinesis. Is that a sound strategy?

no. There's only one Garuda in the game. The rest are Garuda-Egi, which are unaffected (I think I tried it once).

Well, I think there are only a few loot items like that...the serpentskin, whatever that one dark flan carries. But anyway, that's not used for the Bazaar.

...Sounds like a Split Infinity strat. >=| Anyway, I think it couldn't hurt to have a gunner? They have the best accuracy, after all. Unless I think you said you were limiting yourself to certain classes...

It didnt seem to me like the Eskir Berries did that much damage to the Garuda anyway, so it was almost not worth using them.

It's not so much the damage it does, but it does weaken it's defence and offense significantly.

Split suggests I KO Vossler, put the Garuda to sleep and reflect Dark off my characters. Far too much effort, especially if it's as easy as you say.

I'm loosely following the classes from the International Zodiac version and Vaan is the only one who can use guns, but he's fairing well with a Chopper and shield at the moment. I have two Red Mages and an Archer so they should be able to cope.

I meant the fact that he never shuts up about the girls in his walkthrough. >_>

btw, my "strategy" was to use a bunch of quickenings. I assume you seem to be taking a different route from that. Will be harder if so.

...? I thought Balthier can use guns. It's his starting weapon. Unless you mean you've placed him under another "class" and you don't want him to use it.

Does Garuda have any elemental weaknesses? I think I used some black magick for the fight, can't remember what...

Oh, didn't know that. I've never read any of his guides all the way through. I just Ctrl+F the thing I want.

I've not stopped to train for any length of time, and as a result Penelo is the only one to learn a Quickening. I want a second to raise her MP, but that's the only reason. I think I only use Quickenings once during my last run, on the second Demon Wall.

Okay, technically Balthier and a couple of others have the gun licences so they can use guns, but I don't want them to.

Yep, that would be Dark.
