Genus: Rank VI Mark
Being a variety of Nightmare, oft told in the Legends of Ridorana. Having the power to turn the Dreams of Men to Terrors, then feeding off its Victims' Anguish. The petitioner of this hunt is a Woman caught nightly by the Dreams, and unable to sleep.
Ixion can be easily found at Pharos at Ridorana's Subterra, on any of the three floors. The lift must be coming down from the first floor. If there are other monsters around, the player should take the lift back up to the first floor and try again until there are no enemies around. After running around the circle for a while Ixion will show up.
Interestingly, if Ixion is fought in the circular section, it will have less HP. Ixion's standard attack is not devastating but it does chain often and hits quite fast. It also likes casting Dispelga, meaning buffs should be cast as often as possible. Ixion can also use Fearga, which reduces MP drastically. Aside from that, Ixion has a plethora of status-inflicting magick. The player should bring a lot of X-Potions and curative items. If Ixion is afflicted with any type of status it can cast Purify, which removes all of its status ailments. If the party is at a high level they can Berserk it. This stops Ixion from casting Purify. The party should finish Ixion quickly when its HP gets low, because it hits hard and fast. Ixion's most damaging attack, Thundaga, can hurt a lot, but a Rubber Suit or Zodiac Escutcheon are helpful.
