    • There is no need to wait until after Japanese Midnight.

The Battle

See the individual mob pages for information about their abilities and behaviour.
  • Mobs have low damage and defense (hitting DD in TP gear for ~100, ~50 with Cocoon); damage reduction will help greatly.
  • These mobs are all immune to black magic Sleep (even with the use of Elemental Seal)
    • Light-based sleep works but may resist and has short duration.
    • All mobs are susceptible to Gravity, though the Goblin has THF's Resist Gravity trait.
    • Bind is frequently resisted (immune?)
    • The monsters do not have shared enmity, they possess very specific enmity mechanics.
      • Seed Goblin follows normal enmity mechanics when in battle. While the goblin does teleport to sneak attack random members, it returns to attacking the party member who previously had hate.
      • Seed Yagudo and Seed Quadav follow normal enmity mechanics.
      • Seed Orc will assist the Seed Yagudo, attacking the same target as the Yagudo, and will only stop after the Yagudo is dead; at which point the Orc will begin assisting the Seed Quadav, and continue assisting until the Quadav is dead. Once both Yagudo and Quadav are dead, the Orc will return to normal enmity mechanics.
  • This fight can be repeated by collecting the seed afterglows again.
