A pair of Lv.23 spiracorns fights in Cleigne Crossroads and All-Star Monster Mayhem in Totomostro under the team name Breakaway Bicorns.
Bestiary[edit | edit source]
- Herbivore sporting an entwined pair of spiral horns jutting out from its forehead. Like its cousin the mesmenir, the spiracorn is innately wary of mankind, making domestication and riding unfeasible, though some features indicate the species may at one time have been selectively bred as destriers.
- Size: 14.53 ft. Weight: 1.34 t
- Spiracorn upon whose head a bounty rests. This breed eschews uniformity, and spiracorn behaviors vary by herd: some centering around larger leaders, some focused on expansion, and so on.
- Size: 14.69 ft. Weight: 1.38 t

Stats[edit | edit source]
Battle[edit | edit source]
Spiracorns attempt to lance the player with their horns. They buck and kick those near them. Their charge attack can be blocked and parried. They are weak to one-handed swords, shields and fire and they resist ice and light. Cross chain can initiate against them.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Warp-striking spiracorns often topples them over. If caught in the middle of a herd, the player can hold the defense button and respond to the parry prompt when it appears. Since they appear in groups, throwing fire elemancy at them can catch the whole herd off guard.
Horn farming[edit | edit source]
Spiracorns can be used to farm gil if the player can efficiently break their horns. Locking onto the horns and warp-striking to them often works, and many royal arms and the Cerberus are good weapons for breaking off enemy appendages. The skill Warp-Ambush in Wait Mode is also great for increasing the likelihood of breaking the appendage. The horns can then be sold. The hunt version of the spiracorn yields the Sturdy Helixhorn needed to make the Ultima Blade. The official guide erroneously lists the same drops for both the normal enemy and the hunt version of spiracorn, but the latter in fact has wholly different drops.
The player doesn't need to kill anything so as long as they break the horns. By not killing the spiracorns, they will respawn without camping. The hunt can also be repeated.
