Gear (FFXI)

Gears are a type of archaic machinery discovered in the Ruins of Alzadaal, they are reminiscent of naval mines, but can be deadly even from afar. Sometimes operating in groups of three, they often appear in swarms in Salvage areas. They appear to fall within the Arcana class of monster, and perhaps could be considered a sub-class; however at this time they are separately classified, and it is not known whether they share other traits of those classes.

In the case of triple gears, a gear is destroyed at 50% and 25% health, while the gear ability Restoral will restore a gear.
