Breshan Bass is a Saboteur, and the best infusion source of Deprotect at level 1, and Deshell at level 5. It is arguably a decent source of Wound at level 8, with the small cost of 9 Orbs weighed against the difficulty of waiting for and finding Pantopoda and Viking, which get Wound at level 1. It is an adequate source of Imperil at level 13; although there are three monsters that get it at lower levels, they are harder to find. Ahriman gets Imperil at level 1, Black Chocobo at level 7, and Chelicerata, level 12.
At level 1, it has Item Scavenger II, increasing the drop rate of common items many times over. This ability is red-locked, so it can not be infused from Breshan Bass to another monster.
[view·edit·purge]Bass is a name shared by many different species of fish encompassing both freshwater and marine species. All belong to the large order Perciformes, or perch-like fishes, and the word "bass" comes from Middle English bars, meaning "perch."
