Notes:

  • Spawned by trading Massive Armband to ??? at F-10. 5 minute respawn.
  • Has non-dispellable Shock Spikes.
  • Can use Trebuchet. Possible hate reset when he uses it.
  • Uses a special form of Catapult that bypasses (doesn't wipe) shadows.
  • Heavily resistant to Blind effects, but it can stick. Slow and Paralyze can be landed with somewhat less difficulty.
  • Not to be underestimated, can easily wipe a group of 12+ if you're careless.
  • 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. Rabelias has him represent a stereotypical good king, in apposition to the bad king of Picrochole. Grandgousier advocates peace and discussion over war and greed.
