Alteci is a Trophy Rare Game enemy found in the Zertinan Caverns in Final Fantasy XII. It is a stronger version of the Behemoth.

Bestiary entry Edit

Derivation: Behemoth

Behemoth showing both unusual aggression, and an unusual capacity to inflict damage. Hunted in Zertinan Caverns.


How to find Edit

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

The player must have spoken to the "Huntmaster" in Phon Coast and defeated Thalassinon to start the Rare Game quest. Afterward, the player must build a chain of twelve Mallicants (or Shambling Corpses from Athroza Quicksands) in the Undershore area of the Zertinan Caverns. It is not necessary to leave and reenter to trigger Alteci's appearance: one must simply scroll its spawnpoint off the minimap. The player should do this by going near an exit and then heading back towards the center of the room.

To make the spawning easier, the player can start the Mallicant chain in another area, as long as the twelfth perishes in the Undershore. The next area, Halls of Ardent Darkness, has many Mallicants—if the player kills eleven Mallicants here, moves into the Undershore and kills another, this will satisfy the requirements for the Alteci to spawn.

Gallery Edit

While Alteci's bestiary image shows it holding the trademark sword of the Behemoths, the real Alteci does not have this weapon when fought. Instead, it uses its bare fists.
