Map of Aerieel's approximate spawn point.

There is a 20% chance it will spawn in the Oltam Span.

Battle Edit

The Aerieel is tough if fought with a lower level, or even the same level as it. Aerieel uses Leech to drain HP from the party. Whenever its HP falls down to half, it will keep using Leech, but sometimes may cast Poison onto the nearest character.


It is always a good idea to have at least one party member to heal one melee-attacking character since the Aerieel will always perform Leech against them. Having another character to attack using long-ranged, such as guns or crossbows, is better than bows or hand-bombs since the Aerieel is evasive. Antidotes or the Tourmaline Ring help. Inflicting Blind and/or Silence on it negates its Poison spell.
