Yellowtooth is weak to polearms, shields and ice. It acts like other canine enemies of the same type. Its pounce attack can be blocked and parried. Using ice elemancy on the pack of them is a good opening move. If fighting among the pack as Noctis, the player should be ready with the Defense command as he is otherwise easily toppled over; parrying with a polearm can lead to link-strikes with team mates and the yellowtooth is weak to this weapon type. The yellowtooth is easy to make vulnerable with warp-strikes.
A pair of Lv.28 yellowtooths also appears in the Duscae Deathmatch of the Totomostro with a team name Goldenteeth.
Bestiary[edit | edit source]
- Slightly jaundiced variant of the voretooth. It stalks the Alstor Slough, waiting for its prey to get stuck in the muck, then launching a pack-wide attack. The threat of a yellowtooth ambush has scared many would-be anglers away from Neeglyss Pond in recent years, but the Hunters are hoping to rectify the situation at long last.
- Size: 13.64 ft. Weight: 491.4 lb.
