Battle[edit | edit source]
Alphagin's attacks deal physical damage. They appear in a group with sahagins, easily distinguishable for their considerably larger size. They can latch onto Noctis's foot and roll, but the player can button mash when the prompt appears to break free. Their lunging attack can be blocked and parried. They snap at those close to them with their mouths and whip with their tails in a wide arc. Alphagin is weak to polearms, shields and ice.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
A good way to start the hunt off is to throw ice elemancy at the group. When fighting them in melee range, the parry prompts are frequent so the player should stay vigilant to respond. Good weapons for parrying are the ones that trigger link-strikes (polearms do and the crocodile-type enemies are weak to them) and some of the royal arms, as some, such as the Mace of the Fierce, parry against multiple enemies at once and using royal arms for parrying does not cost HP. Targeting them from behind works to stay away from their fanged side (though they will stull whip with their tail as well) and to trigger blindside-strikes and links as well.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet. It was derived from the Phoenician letter "aleph," and it is the source of the Latin and Cyrillic letter "A." In English, alpha is a noun that means "beginning" or "first (in a series)."
