Strategy Edit

Fang attacks gorgonopsid

Fang attacks a Gorgonopsid.

When they are first encountered on the Archylte Steppe in Gran Pulse, it is safe to engage them for a quick battle, as they pose no real danger with the Delta Attack (COM/RAV/SEN) paradigm.

If four or more appear, or they are accompanied by stronger denizens, such as a Behemoth King or Megistotherian, it may be best to avoid them, or aim for a preemptive strike and dispatch of the larger adversaries first. Like most enemies on the Archylte Steppe, Gorgonopsids pose no threat when encountered in Chapter 13.
