The Enkelados is the weakest Rank II Mark from Final Fantasy XII. It is the tenth mark mentioned in the Clan Primer and becomes available after obtaining the Dawn Shard in the storyline. It can be found in The Shred area of the Ozmone Plain and can only be encountered after the player has killed all of the Wus in the area.

Finding Enkelados Edit

To have Enkelados spawn, one must defeat all of the Wu in The Shred, and then move one zone away, enter back into The Shred and Enkelados will have appeared.

Battle Edit

FFXII Enkelados

Enkelados in battle.

Enkelados is one of the easier marks. Enkelados will eventually heal himself, taking his HP back up to 50%. It will use Purify once during the battle to heal itself of any status ailments the player may have inflicted on it, followed by White Wind, which makes it immune to statuses for two minutes. Enkelados can be affected by Disable and Immobilize.

The Shred is also a place where the Rare Game Bull Croc will spawn. Should the player be unlucky, the Croc will spawn alongside the Enkelados. The Aeros, another Rare Game, will fly out of the Henne Mines and engage in battle if the Bull Croc is defeated. If the Bull Croc appears, it may be better to zone in and out till it disappears.

Strategy Edit

One strategy is to start the battle by summoning Belias and have him perform Hellfire for severe damage. Chaining Quickenings will also bring him down easily, or by bringing a berserked character. The Nihopalaoa-Remedy trick when Enkelados is at half-health will allow for an easy take-down.

Rewards Edit

The player will also receive an Errmonea Leaf after the battle, which Low-chief Sugumu asks the player to take to Lesina in the nomad village in Giza Plains. If the player does this, Lesina will reward the player with two Remedies.
