The Abysteel is an undead/steeling-type enemy from Final Fantasy XII found deep in the Henne Mines, the Lhusu Mines, as well as the Sochen Cave Palace.

In the Henne Mines, there is a junction where the player can press a switch to open the doors. When it is pressed, about twenty Abysteels will come to attack. It is one of the best places to level up using the gambits: Foe: Undead → Disable and Foe: Status = Disable → Curaja, it is better to wait until the party is at a higher level as Abysteels are difficult enemies. One can also use Sleepga, as they are vulnerable to Sleep, and take them out one by one.

Also, sixteen Abysteels are fought in the International Zodiac Job System Trial Mode at stage 96.

Bestiary entry Edit

Page 1: Observations Edit

Being a variety of bat with wings of surpassing beauty, preferring to make their abodes in magicite mines and underground chambers. Their wings are composed of a tough metallic substance, and by their patterns can males and females be distinguished. It is generally held that the patterning of the females is more beautiful, lending the wings much popularity as ornamentation on airships, the male's, meanwhile, being considered ill-favored, and shunned as a sign of bad luck.

Page 2: Tips for the Adventurer Edit

Few things bring to mind 'ill luck' so readily as a vampyr fang. Yet the things are famous among apothecaries and their ilk as a vital ingredient in wards and charms against curses! And, apparently, not just any fang will do the trick. I'd have no idea how to tell a vampyr fang from a regular, pointy one, if I had to look into such a mouth, and I hope I never have the pleasure. If you want one, you'd best be ready to grope around some pretty nasty places. Maybe you'll get your fang yet. Maybe you'll lose a few fingers in the process. Either way, count me out!
