Final Fantasy V - The Spirit of Heroes

N-Zone Entrance: Desert

N-Zone Entrance: Desert

Congratulations this is the Rift; the home stretch. The Sahara it ain’t. This little stretch of land eases you into a false sense of security. There is no treasure here. You’ve met all of the monsters before in various deserts outside. It’s short and easy. All you have to do is follow the sand tide (not to be confused with the ocean tide to the north) eastward. Along the way you will meet a few different desert dwellers. Cast Float since the Ankheg cast Earthquake frequently. They are weak to ice, so use that tidbit to your advantage. Alternately, you may cast Level 3 Flare on the Ankheg or the Ammonite to dispatch them in one shot. If you still haven’t learned Aqua Breath, the Dhorme Chimera would be more than happy to remedy that deficiency. The only problematic enemy you may encounter on your trek across the sands is the Landcrawler. He lurked about in the desert outside of the Phoenix Tower, so you may already be versed in reducing his 22,000 hp. The most effective spell to use on the Landcrawler is Aqua Breath. It puts a dent in his hp at least, causing between 8,000-9,000 points of damage.

There is no Boss at the end of this stretch of desert. There is a door jutting from the ocean. The door doesn’t appear to be attached to any building, it just stands there waiting to be opened. Once you do open it of course you set free a slew of monsters. Fortunately you don’t have to fight any of them just yet. They just taunt you a bit and vanish into the depths of the Interdimensional Rift.

Landcrawlers are not as problematic as one might think. No swords, no bows, no heavy axes to haul around; well if you have been wasting time on mastering a berserker. (He he, there are more impressive, and valuable skills to learn, instead of being a human meat cleaver.) SORRY got of track a bit...ahhh yes the landcrawler...simple, the Death spell. An easy 7 abp if you ask me.

What Lv are your characters when you did this? Bartz does around 9000-11000 damage to Landcrawler when he uses Rapid Fire.

I wanted to know, is there anyway to get back to your ship at the beginning of the N-Zone?

Now what I wanna know is why all seven of those weak ass bosses doesn't gang swarm right then and there. I've seen smarter James Bond villians.
