The Thextera is a mark in the Final Fantasy XII found within the Galtea Downs area of the Dalmasca Westersand. The hunt can be undertaken as soon as Vaan returns to Rabanastre from the Rogue Tomato hunt.

Being a mutant wolf with unusual coloration, along with what appear to be fins, Thextera usually appears with a pack of Wolves, and thus proves a dire threat if taken lightly at low levels. Thextera is also fought in the International Zodiac Job System trial mode at stage 2 along with an Alpha Wolf and an Alpha Hyena.

Bestiary entry Edit

What Changes can sudden Mutation work on something as Common and otherwise Unremarkable as a Wolf! It is thought that a Diet of Creatures rich in Mist caused these Mutations, though little is known for certain. Recent Attacks on mercantile Caravans inspired a concerned Merchant to post a Bill for this Mark.

Battle Edit

FF12 Map - Dalmasca Westersand
Map of Thextera's approximate spawn point.

Good equipment to have is Mage Mashers and Tourmaline Rings. The player should keep its HP above 100 and get rid of all the wolves in the area before engaging Thextera. A good stock of Potions and Antidotes helps.

Thextera's Cry for Help can be disabled by casting Silence, which can be inflicted by the Mage Masher. After losing enough health Thextera uses Saber, which doubles its Attack power, though taking up some of its HP. If the player has got the License for a character's Mist ability they can chain Quickenings; three should be enough to kill it.

Thextera can be beaten as soon as Penelo joins the party. It is best to equip Vaan and Penelo with Escutcheons, Leather Clothing, Leather Caps, Broadswords or Daggers.

Thextera can also be killed instantly with an Aero Mote, regardless of level or equipment.
