Requirements Edit

FF12 Map - Zertinan Caverns
Map of Molen's approximate spawn point.

Molen can be found in the Hourglass Basin part of the Zertinan Caverns. To get it to appear, the player needs to head into the secluded section of the area (the area with the Grenades and where the Catoblepas is fought), which can be reached via The Undershore by walking between the two "sandfalls", southeast of the save crystal. The player must wait roughly 10 to 15 seconds and they should see the Molen appear on the other side of the ravine.
