What Changes can sudden Mutation work on something as Common and otherwise Unremarkable as a Wolf! It is thought that a Diet of Creatures rich in Mist caused these Mutations, though little is known for certain. Recent Attacks on mercantile Caravans inspired a concerned Merchant to post a Bill for this Mark.

Good equipment to have is Mage Mashers and Tourmaline Rings. The player should keep HP above 100 and get rid of all the wolves in the area before engaging Thextera. A good stock of Potions and Antidotes helps.
Thextera's Cry for Help can be disabled by inflicting it with Silence from the Mage Masher. After losing enough health Thextera uses Saber, which doubles its Attack power, though taking up some of its HP. If the player has got the License for a character's Mist ability, they can chain Quickenings; three should be enough to kill it.
Thextera can be beaten as soon as Penelo joins the party. It is best to equip Vaan and Penelo with the best equipment available from shops, although Thextera can also be killed instantly with an Aero Mote, regardless of level or equipment.
