Rat Problem Tips & Tricks


  • The Doomrats are just stronger Wererats, so they share their weakness to ice magic. Take them out with a few casts of Blizzard when they aren't moving.
  • Even if you aren't planning on completing every Odd Job, you may want to complete this quest to get the assess data for the Doomrats and the discounted Cleansing Materia.
  • This quest will also unlock the On the Prowl Odd Job from Wyman.
