Gastrophetes-ffxii

The Gastrophetes in Final Fantasy XII.

An enormous, high-tension bow. Difficult to draw, but well worth the trouble.

Gastrophetes (ガストラフェテス, Gasutorafetesu?), also known as Gastraphetes and Gastrafitis, is a recurring weapon in the series. It is generally the most powerful crossbow in the games it appears in.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIEdit

XI The Gastrophetes is the Ranger Mythic Weapon, and as such requires the player complete several complicated and expensive tasks. It is a crossbow with average speed and attack for the weapon type. It grants access to the mythic Weapon Skill Trueflight. Due to the poor damage of crossbow ammunition compared to bullets and arrows, the high cost of the weapon, and the low damage of its magic based Weapon Skill, very few Gastrophetes have been made.

Final Fantasy XIIEdit

XII The Gastrophetes is the strongest crossbow, providing 76 Attack and 7% critical rate. It can be bought for 18,900 gil at the Outfitters Shop as part of the Hunt Club sidequest after giving 25 Trophies to Atak, or stolen from Pallicant. It requires 75 LP and the Crossbows 4 license in order to equip. Crossbows are the fastest ranged weapons at 2.3s charge and 1.4s action.
