Bestiary entry Edit

Page 1: Observations Edit

Being a giant plant, transformed by the dense Mist of the Feywood. The long trunk-root extending from beneath its bloom is used to draw nourishment from the elder trees it prefers.
Though it reproduces by releasing pollen from pods, the Mist interferes with germination, and actual sproutlings are rare.

Battle Edit

The Rafflesia will constantly suck away the party's MP at a monstrous rate, and can also inflict Sap. Its Cry for Help command calls Malboros into battle, but it cannot be used if Rafflesia is afflicted with Silence. The Malboros it summons constantly use Cloying Breath.

Strategy Edit

To prepare, it is best to stock up on Remedies and Hi-Potions for this battle. Any Quickenings one may want to use should be done as early as possible, or else the chance will disappear. Any Charge gambits should also be disabled, or else the characters will be doing little else than continually trying to restore their MP. It is best to have one person at range who can use Remedies on party members affected with status ailments.

Rewards Edit

Montblanc will give 1800 gil for defeating the Rafflesia.

Etymology Edit

The Rafflesia is a genus of parasitic flowering plants found in southeastern Asia, on Indonesia, Malay Peninsula, Borneo, Sumatra, Thailand and the Philippines. Rafflesia was found in the Indonesian rain forest by an Indonesian guide working for Dr. Joseph Arnold in 1818, and named after Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, the leader of the expedition.
