Keep going northward till you reach Gate of the Soul Ward - Sochen Cave Palace - Part II - Final Fantasy XII - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Keep going northward till you reach Gate of the Soul Ward. Use the key to open them. This strange monster the kid was talking about is in the room behind these doors.

Mandragora Prince, - Sochen Cave Palace - Part II - Final Fantasy XII - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Mandragora Prince,

Alraune King,

Onion Queen,

Pumpkin Star,

Topstalk

About 9 000 HP each

Resistant to Libra,

Ram,

Pollen

These are the terrifying monsters that are spreading terror in this cave. The fight with them is a bit annoying - they attack and immediately run away. Focus your attack on one foe and keep attacking him until he's dead. For this purpose use the "lowest HP" gambit - thanks to it heroes will chase the wounded enemy all by themselves. Their attacks are an ordinary Ram and Pollen which cause many bad status effects on your characters - heal them at once.

For killing them you earn 1000 gil and 3x Remedy from the kid and another 1600 gil from Montblanc.

Behind the next door you'll see a save crystal, but be careful - it's a Crystal Bug. If you're weakened after the battle with mandragoras you should rest a bit and heal yourself. After defeating this fake one a real crystal will appear.

To open the Pilgrim's door you'll have to do some jogging. Begin from the "Start" position and run through the checkpoints in proper order: Leave the area through "1", reenter it through "2", leave through "3" and so on.

When you successfully follow the whole path you'll see a message that a door has just opened. Make your way to No. 9. There you'll find Pilgrim's door and a hidden chamber.

Actually opening the Ascetic's Door right now doesn't have sense because you don't have the key to open the door at the end of a corridor. This time it's better to open only the Pilgrim's Door.

Now run to the next boss - Ahriman.

Ahriman - Sochen Cave Palace - Part II - Final Fantasy XII - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Ahriman

About 58 000 HP

Resistant to Libra,

Vulnerable to Holy,

Absorbs Dark

Toxify,

Divide,

Phantazmal gaze,

Immobilizega,

Doom

At the beginning the fight is quite easy. The stairs begin later when he starts quickly copying himself.

His clones are pretty annoying but fortunately they don't have too much HP. I'd say that you should kill them first but the main problem is to... distinct them...

His attacks beside the divide are: Toxify - one of your characters get the Sap status, Phantazmal gaze - confuses one of your heroes, Immobilizega - immobilize everyone in range and there's also Doom. Heal the statuses immediately.

For defeating the enemy you get 1600 gil from Montblanc.

After the fight collect all treasures in this hall and leave through the door leading east. A bit further you'll find an elevator [screen 1]. Use it to get upstairs. There you'll find a Gate Crystal and the exit from the cave. Just go northward, open the door [screen 2] and you'll be in Old Archades.

How do you open the door at the end of the corridor at the Ascetic's Door? By the way, I love your site, it is the easiest and best that I have found.
