Battle Edit

The Gigan Octopus, along with the Whale Zombie, is an excellent source of EXP. It can be reliably farmed with Thunder-elemental attacks and melee strikes powered by the Bird Killer skill.

With the exception of Blizzaga, its attacks are fairly weak, and its HP is rather low for such an EXP treasure trove. If Quina has not yet obtained the Blue Magic spell Mighty Guard, the Gigan Octopus can be eaten to learn the skill.
