List of Contents
|1||There are quite a few boss battles in this city; make sure to save before entering.|
|2||After the opening cutscene, you will enter into a boss battle with Daedalus.|
|3||Keep at him and he will fall. Once he's defeated, use the Way Stone to enter the city structure.|
|4||Take the enemies one at a time to avoid being teamed up on your way over your capacity.|
|5||Touch the gate stones Avrio, Cthes, Paron, and Parelthon to make your way through the area. Your hint will be the stone golems guarding them.|
|6||A cutscene will happen once you find the invisible pathway, a sign that you're on the correct route.|
|7||Save your game at the save crystal, then prepare to fight the area boss, the Tyrant.|
|8||You can also choose to save again after defeating the Tyrant. Otherwise, move on to the Great Crystal within Giruvegan.|
The first boss you'll come across as you enter Giruvegan is Daedalus. Not to be mistaken for the father of Icarus in Greek mythology, defeating Daedalus makes for a pretty straightforward battle. For more details about the guardian of the gates to Giruvegan, visit our FF12 Boss Battles section.
Giruvegan's gates are controlled by different gate stones from Avrio to Parelthon. Each of these gate stones--with the exception of gate Avrio--are guarded by guardian golems. This will also be your cue that you are near one of these gate stones or a pathway going to the next area.
The Tyrant is just one of the many dragon opponents you'll face off against in Final Fantasy XII. This particular dragon, though, only serves as an appetizer of sorts for an even bigger boss battle up ahead. Just the same, we have covered the Tyrant's details and mannerisms in our FF12 Boss Battles section.
|9||The Great Crystal map can be confusing if you don't know where to go. The key is to take a look at the map names.|
|10||In A Prama Vikaari, take exit right. It will be easy to figure things out from this area as the next paths have one exit at most.|
|11||Use Way Stone VII at Dha Vikaari Bhrum to get to A Vikaari Kabonii|
|12||Take the left path at A Vikaari Kabonii to connect to Sthaana Cancer.|
|13||Activate the stone waypoint found at Sthaana, then double back to A Vikaari.|
|14||When you return to A Vikaari, take the furthest exit from the entrance this time. The next area will only have one exit.|
|15||You'll end up at Dah Vikaari Trahk. Take the Way Stone V to proceed.|
|16||Take the left pathway at A Bikaari Bhrum. The next area will only have one exit.|
|17||Activate the Aries Stone at Sthaana Aries then make your way back to A Bikaari again.|
|18||Take the closest exit once you're back at A Bikaari Bhrum.|
|19||You'll end up at Trahk Pis Praa. Take the left-most exit.|
|20||When you emerge at the Sthaana Pisces area, activate the Pisces Stone, then head to the Dha Vikaari Jula exit.|
|21||Once you emerge in Dha Vikaari Jula, take the Way Stone III to the Crystal Core area.|
|22||Save at the save crystal in the Crystal Core and prepare...you'll battle a boss once more.|
|23||Once you've saved, take the exit to the next area. Shemhazai will be your opponent.|
|24||Defeat Shemhazai and this boss will become another Esper in your arsenal. Make your way out of the Great Crystal in Giruvegan. You'll also take the Treaty-Blade as part of your booty.|
|25||Once you can move on your own again after the cutscene, take the Tellurian Way Stone to return to the entrance to Giruvegan.|
|26||Use the save cyrstal to teleport back to Balfonheim, where you'll prepare to head over to Ridorana.|
Another significant fact about the Great Crystal is that it's home to another Esper, the Whisperer Shemhazai. This boss is no pushover, but will be easy to defeat with the right set of skills and equipment. Find out more about Shemhazai in our FF12 Boss Battles section.
Giruvegan is also where Ashe gains the Treaty-blade. This was used by her ancestor, the Dynast-King Raithwall, to cut off shards from the Sun-Cryst and use those to bring control to the chaos of his time. The Treaty-blade can also be used in-game and can be equipped on any character, regardless of license restrictions.
