  • Accuracy seems to rise the lower his health.
  • Catapult accuracy follows this pattern as well.
  • Heavily resistant to Blind effects, but it can stick. Slow and Paralyze can be landed with somewhat less difficulty.
  • Due to the ???'s proximity to the usual patrol paths of the Demersal Gigas, as well as their respawn rate, having one of them link onto the mages is a fairly common occurence. Anyone not fighting at the wall should keep watch for any unexpected rocks flung at them and be prepared to Sleep.

Historical Background

In literature, Grandgousier (French: grand gosier, "Big Throat") is the wife of Gargamelle, the daughter of the King of Papillons and the father of Gargantua. A Rabelaisien character par excellence, he has an appreciation of good living, good heart, and all of life's pleasures. Rabelais has him represent a stereotypical good king, in apposition to the bad king of Picrochole. Grandgousier advocates peace and discussion over war and greed.
