Mission Information
Turf Defense Mission: Mission: Help Nubs! The Blade Biter here is flanked by two Toughskins and controlled by a Beastmaster. Black Magic is very important in this fight.
Turf Defense Mission: Mission: Help Nargai! The Blade Biter here can be troublesome if it runs off to a corner and uses Resonate to disable any physical attackers. Try to catch it with a strong Blizzard spell before it does so.
Mission #083: Foreign Fiend The lone level 38 Blade Biter here is actually a foreign Adamantoise. Inflict it with the Disable or Stop status effects and use it to level up the party members quickly.
