The Feral Retriever is a Rank III Mark from Final Fantasy XII. It can be found in the Spine of the Icewyrm area of the Paramina Rift.

The hunt becomes available upon reaching Mt Bur-Omisace, so if the player wishes to fight it with Larsa in the party, they should return to Rabanastre upon reaching the mountain to accept the hunt, because Larsa will leave the party if the player proceeds further in the story.

Bestiary entry Edit

Being a rare Strain of Coeurl, surpassingly Large in size, living in Paramina Rift. Once raised by Man as hunting Partners, they are now wholly feral, and known to descend from their Mountain Abodes during Mating Season, when they are more than usually Violent and easily provoked. Several Refugees making their way toward Holy Mt Bur-Omisace have been attacked of late, and so a concerned Kiltias on the Mountain posted a Bill for this Mark.

Battle Edit


Feral Retriever.

The player can start off by using the typical high-HP strategy of Haste-Protect-Decoy-Berserk on the party's strongest person. One party member can be kept in reserve for support casting, which will come in handy for Feral Retriever's Blaster, which can cause several status effects.

The last person is best using a strong ranged weapon, such as the step above Betelgeuse or the Yoichi Bow, and using Hi-Potions for healing or Remedies to save MP. When Feral Retriever is low on HP it might use Balance, which will kill a party member.

A good strategy is to use Quickenings as soon as it starts flashing red. The Nihopalaoa + Remedy trick will work against it, and when afflicted with Disease it won't use Balance.
