Battle Edit

Normally they only use physical attacks, but on their third turn they always use White Wind. As they are encountered in the area immediately after Strago joins the party, this is the earliest and arguably easiest way for him to learn White Wind as a Lore. Besides White Wind, the Venobennu is not a notable enemy and can easily be defeated with normal attacks.
