It feels great to have friends who believe in you, and adults you can rely on.
On this page, you can see all of the details about the Cactuar Island Quest to obtain the GF Jumbo Cactuar. First let us look at a table with this side quest's details.
Side Quest Details
The Cactuar Island is a small, desert island, located on the southeast corner of the Esthar continent. You probably won't have any troubles finding it when looking for a small, desert island near the Kashkabald Desert, where you'll see a small green figure popping up from time to time. This small, green figure is the GF Jumbo Cactuar. On this island, you will find many, many small Cactuars, which are the most evasive enemies in the entire game. You must have a high speed and hit figure to get to hit them or use your Limit Breaks to have a higher chance. Squall has the best chance of hitting them. The little Cactuars are good for 20 AP when defeated, so that's great when building up your GF abilities. They also have a habit of running away from battle.
The Jumbo Cactuar is an ancient Cactuar that has grown to immense proportions. Before you start the fight, make sure you have saved your game! Also, if you already have Revive and Recover, equip them as they'll come in handy. And make sure that the characters also have some Life and Full-Life spells and store up on Phoenix Down's, since the Jumbo Cactuar has the ability to eliminate one of your characters with a single attack. Lastly, make sure you have somebody Junctioned with Leviathan and if possible with a high compatibility and preferable not on the character with the Revive and Recover abilities. Leviathan deals water damage and Jumbo Cactuar has a weakness to Water magic.
