StatsEdit

Encountering Edit

EstharElnoyle

Elnoyle's location in Disc 3 Esthar.

When Esthar City is flooded with monsters after the Lunar Cry, to the north of Odine's lab there is a black figure sitting at the farthest point, who will laugh "Heehahaheehee" when the player tries to strike a conversation. The fight commences immediately after, and the player cannot escape the battle. This can be repeated as many times as the player wishes by leaving the screen and returning.

Elnoyles are also met in random encounters on the roads in Esthar City and in the chapel of Ultimecia Castle.

Battle Edit

Elnoyles are weak against Instant Death. They swipe at the party with their claws and counterattack every attack. Their Storm Breath hits the whole party. They can dispel the party's status enhancements and debuff them with Pain and and even kill them outright with Death. It also uses its Tail Needle attack on occasion.

Elnoyle is an important enemy because it drops Energy Crystals needed to remodel Quistis's and Rinoa's ultimate weapons. Plus, they can be refined into Pulse Ammo needed for the Lion Heart, Squall's best weapon, and for Irvine's Shot Limit Break. Energy Crystals can also be refined into Ultima. Elnoyles are immune to Tonberry's Level Up skill.

Strategy Edit

Junctioning a hundred Deaths to status attack has a chance of killing an Elnoyle in a single hit. Without the Death strategy, the battles can be quite annoying because Elnoyle often counterattacks with a physical attack. It is also susceptible to Degenerator.
