Phorusracos (Bestiary Entry #11)

The Phorusracos can only be found in the upper right, as well as lower left corners, of the world map. You most likely encounter it near the Dreadnought dungeon. You need to beat this enemy before beating the Mysidian Tower.

Antlion (Bestiary Entry #31)

The Antlion can be found in the eastern continent. You most likely encounter it in the massive desert there. This enemy must be beaten before the Mysidian Tower is completed.

Land Ray (Bestiary Entry #53)

The Land Ray enemy can only be found in the eastern continent of the world map. It is most commonly encountered in the big desert there. Make sure you add it to your bestiary before completing the Mysidian Tower.

Killer Fish (Bestiary Entry #40)

Killer Fish can be found in the oceans of the world map. You must defeat one before you finish the Mysidian Tower, or you will miss out on it.

Helldiver (Bestiary Entry #42)

Helldiver can be encountered while traveling through the oceans on a ship around the world map. You may also find it inside the Dreadnought dungeon. You must defeat this enemy before completing the Mysidian Tower.

Buccaneer (Bestiary Entry #45)

The Buccaneer is another enemy that you will encounter while exploring the oceans. Make sure you defeat one before you clear the Mysidian Tower.

Sea Snake (Bestiary Entry #52)

The Sea Snake can be found in the oceans of the world map as well. Once again, you need to defeat this creature before the Mysidian Tower is completed.

Skull can be found in the Castle Palamecia dungeon. So, make sure you encounter and defeat it before confronting the boss or else you will miss out on this entry in your bestiary.

Eyemoeba (Bestiary Entry #71)

The Eyemoeba can be found in the Cyclone and Castle Palamecia dungeons. Both of these locations can only be visited once. If you didn’t encounter it in Cyclone, then Palamecia will be your last chance to find this enemy.

Black Knight (Bestiary Entry #91)

The Black Knight is exclusive to the Castle Palamecia dungeon. You need to encounter and beat it before you reach the boss; otherwise, you will get locked out of the bestiary entry.

Stone Golem (Bestiary Entry #94)

The Stone Golem is another enemy that can only be found in Castle Palamecia. So make sure you defeat one before leaving this location.

General (Bestiary Entry #106)

The General can be fought when you open one of the chests in the Cyclone dungeon. If you missed out on the chest, then you have one last chance at finding this enemy as a random encounter in Castle Palamecia.

Final Fantasy II Pixel Remaster: Missable chest locations guide

If you aren’t careful, then you can miss out on a total of 48 chests in the Pixel remaster version of Final Fantasy II Remaster. To see how you can find them before it is too late, you can check out this guide at Seeking Tech.

The following locations contain permanently missable chests depending on where you are in the story:

  • Altair – 1 missable chest
  • Dreadnought – 10 missable chests
  • Leviathan – 5 missable chests
  • Fynn – 8 missable chests
  • Cyclone – 8 missable chests
  • Castle Palamecia – 8 missable chests

The Altair chest must be opened before you complete the Mysidian Tower dungeon. The eight missable chests in Fynn are extremely time limited, as you can only get them when you hatch the wyvern egg but before you complete the Cyclone dungeon.

The Dreadnought, Leviathan, Cyclone and Castle Palamecia dungeons are one-time locations. So, you should make sure you grab all the chests before beating them.

Fastest way to encounter Iron Giant in Final Fantasy II Pixel Remaster

This Seeking Tech guide will show you the fastest way to finding the Iron Giant in Final Fantasy II Pixel Remaster.

You can only fight against this enemy on the fifth, sixth and seventh floor of Pandaemonium, which is the final dungeon in the game.

The best spot is apparently on the seventh floor as there is an area with a line of pillars on the right side of the map. If you run below these pillars, then you may have a better chance of eventually encountering the Iron Giant.

In terms of the actual fight, the Iron Giant is weak against Ice and Lighting magic spelss. When defeated, it can drop the Genji Helm, Genji Gloves, Genji Armor, Excalibur or Aegis Shield.

How to find the Rebel Camp in Final Fantasy II Pixel Remaster

This Seeking Tech guide will show you how to find the Rebel Camp, which is the only missable location in Final Fantasy II Pixel Remaster.

To begin, you need to play through the story up until you rescue Princess Hilda in the Coliseum. Once you do, exit the area and then return to the world map.

Afterwards, you should immediately travel slightly west of Gatrea.

Optionally, you can return to Altair, where you can then hear one of the NPCs talking about where Prince Gordon and Princess Hilda went.

You need to visit this place before you head to the next point of the story, which is to retake Castle Fynn. So, the window to visit the camp is extremely limited if you aren’t careful.

5. Select Yes to play the mini-game and you should unlock the Hidden Game trophy and achievement.

Once you get there, you will notice several small rooms. The stone is located on the top right most room. In order to get there, you need to move to the upper left opening.

Once you pass through it, you will end up being on the upper right opening of the map, which is where the top right most room can be accessed. Once you get there, you should find the Rosetta Stone in one of the three chests.

How to find Excalibur in Final Fantasy I Pixel Remaster

Excalibur is the second strongest weapon in Final Fantasy I Pixel Remaster. By acquiring this weapon, you will also earn the Sword of Myth trophy and achievement. To see how you can find this weapon, you can check out this tutorial at Seeking Tech.

1. If you haven’t done so already, you need to find the Adamantite. This item is located on the lower left room of the second floor in the Flying Fortress dungeon.

2. Once you have obtained Adamantite, go to Mount Duregar.

3. In this town, head to the top room and talk to the blacksmith.

4. The Adamantite should automatically be handed over to the blacksmith, which will then craft it to the Excalibur.

5. Once the weapon has been handed to you, the Sword of Myth trophy and achievement should pop up.

How to find Warmech in Final Fantasy I Pixel Remaster

The hardest and rarest enemy in Final Fantasy I Pixel Remaster is Warmech. In this guide at Seeking Tech, I will explain how you can find and defeat this enemy.

Location

The Warmech is located on the fifth and final floor of The Flying Fortress. So, you need to make your way there.

Once you get to the bridge area, run back and forward until you trigger a battle with Marmech. If you haven’t beaten the boss in the same area yet, make sure you don’t run too far north.

Encounter Rate

There is a 1 in 64 chance of Warmech appear in a random battle. So, you can use this opportunity to level up your party. It is also important that you keep your party members near full health after every encounter so that you won’t be in a vulnerable state when you finally run into your target..

Battle Strategies

The higher level you are, the better off you will be fighting Warmech when you finally encounter it.

Warmech will heal 100 HP every turn. It will either attack one person or attack the entire party with its Nuke ability. The enemy may also run away if you take too much time. Fortunately, it only has 2000 HP.

If you are still at a lower level, then I recommend that you have one party member heal every round and the other focus on dealing as much damage as possible. Physical attacks work the best as the enemy has no elemental weaknesses.

Beating Warmech will add it to the Bestiary section, which will help you if you are hunting for the Field Research trophies and achievements.
