Mission Prerequisites Information
Mission #051: Desert Rose The Jawbreaker is this battle is assisted by two of its Antlion brethren and two Red Panthers.
Mission #065: Exploration Free Gotor Sands The Jawbreaker here starts out far away from the party on a high elevation, to take it out with magic before it gets close.
Mission #022: To Ambervale Complete Mission #021: Hidden Vein The level 25 Jawbreaker is actually the least dangerous enemy here, as the player must also deal with a Thundrake, Lilith, Coeurl, and Big Malboro.
Mission #094: Sorry, Friend Complete Mission #020: Present Day The escaped Jawbreaker is the only enemy in this mission. It is level 34, so exercise caution when venturing in for melee attacks.
