Grashtrike can be an annoying opponent, as its Silk attack always inflicts the Slow status ailment, although this does not necessarily make the fight harder. Its other attack, Sickle, is not stronger than a regular attack, so it should not be too damaging. Grashtrikes use Silk until all party members suffer from Slow, then attack with Sickle. It is easy to defeat with either physical attacks or any spell (as it has no elemental properties).
Grashtrikes are valuable early on in the game due to them being the first enemy to drop Spider Webs, which inflict Slow on all enemies. The chances of drop are rare, but the Slow spell and additional Spider Webs cannot be obtained until well into the game.
