Written by  Shotgunnova

3.9: Mt. Gulug

Enemies: Wraith (Blue Flame), Wraith (Red Flame), Red Dragon, Worm Hydra, Vepal (Green), Vepal (Red), Grenade

Treasures: δEther, δRibbon, δElixir, δGolden Hairpin, δGaia Gear, δDemon's Mail, δRed Hat, δWing Edge, 9693 Gil

Optional: Blue Magic Update

This is a mining area, so there will be various houses and siderooms.

As you enter, take a left on the catwalk to the nearby building. There's 9693 gil and an δEther lying around the area. Leave out the other side to a ladder's dead-end, where a δRed Hat is sitting. Backtrack to that first fork and infiltrate the other building. Pass through to a well's top and find a small path to the right of it. A field icon beckons Zidane up and right, to where a δGolden Hairpin can be found. Do a fireman slide down the well chain when ready.

At the bottom, go right to find Moolan. Give him a letter and undertake his request for a delivery to Mogtaka. Get the δWing Edge in his room before exiting right again. Past the mineshaft beyond, this path leads to some scaffolding with a δGaia Gear on it. There will be a fixed battle with two Red Dragons on the way back, however. Return to the well and go left this time.

Enter the building at the fork to find some δDemon's Mail, then enter the mineshaft entrance at that same fork. Mogtaka is in here and has a mogshop set up, but no equipment… There's another Red Dragon battle in the room beyond [x1], and you can get the δElixir once it's dead. Return to the well, now.

Pull the lever down thrice to drop a bucket further; slide down after it. Kill the two Red Dragons that attack (mandatory) and proceed through the wall - though you may want to go back and heal first, hint hint. A few scenes later, you'll be getting a δRibbon and a creepy boss battle! Vivi won't be joining for this battle, but Eiko sure will.

This is actually a very easy fight (seriously!); the hard part is walking away with the experience. Virus prevents a character from getting EXP at the post-battle screen, and there's only been one shop (Esto Gaza) that sells any δVaccines so far in the game (though you can steal one from Meltigemini). Meltigemini's 'Wings' attack can do 1000+ damage to front-row party members with medium defense, but besides that, there's not much danger, especially if you inflict Mini/Darkness/Slow with Quina's Bad Breath (or other means). Try to steal a δGolden Hairpin and a δDemon's Vest before you get the last laugh on the jesters.

Afterwards, take a breath because it's back to Lindblum.
