Excalibur and How It Helps
Hello everyone, 7OneWingedAngel7 here. I recently got Excalibur in Final Fantasy XII and I saw so many questions about how to get Excalibur, but sadly, I don't have the time to answer them all one at a time, so I'll answer them all at once. Excalibur is a Great-Sword, having it's own license. It has about 128 attack points and is a Holy Elemental Sword. This can help in alot of areas but cannot in others. Many undead enemies are weak to Holy magick, but there is only one Holy Magick, Holy. So, Excalibur, being a Holy elemental sword, can help in this area. Unluckily, the farther you get in the game, the less it helps, because more and more bosses and Espers are Immune to Magick Elements. So, you'd have to have a back-up weapon for the Excalibur-wielder. I choose to still use the Excalibur because I am still doing the Auto-Level Process, which I mentioned earlier, and the enemies there are undead ans weak to Holy Magick. I also like Excalibur because it is my best attack sword currently.
And as for HOW to get Excalibur, I'm not good myself on details, but I can direct you to what helped me get it. First of all, you have to be PAST Giruvegan to get it. Not Before, of During. Sadly, Giruvegan is near the end of the game. You still have Pharos and Bahamut left to go, and they can be quite a challenge with your average weapons. Anyway, here's the video that helped me:
This video is NOT MADE BY ME and I HAD NO PART IN THE MAKING OF THIS VIDEO. This video was made by TheWingedCloud. Look in the info box on the right of the video for another link for a complete map of the Great Crystal, which is NOT MADE BY ME. Use the video and the map and it should be very easy to get Excalibur.
Hope I helped,
