Try too use this mini equip guide to beat the beast:
Equipments before Garamsythe Waterway ----------------------------------
Im going to point out the powerful equipment you can get before the
Garamsythe Waterway. If you run out of patience getting a particular piece
of equipment then skip it. ie: Burning Bows.
Gladius (45 Attack Dagger, Element Wind) :
Steal from rare monster Lindbur Wolf, Appears in Dalmasca Westersand /
Shimmering Horizon when you have more than 20 chain combo of Wolves.
If you want more than 1 Gladius, then don't kill the Linbur Wolf.
After stealing a Gladius, zone back 2 zones then come back to steal another
Gladius. Blind & Slowing Lindbur Wolf helps a lot.
This video shows how to get Lindbur Wolf to appear and stealing a Gladius
Heavy Lance (48 Attack Spear, On Hit : Slow):
Rare monster Fideliant rarely drops it. The monster appears in
Dalmasca Westersand / The Midfault, 20% chance for each entry.
This enemy is undead and Phoenix Down works so you can chain it easily.
Kill a Fideliant, zone back 2 zones, and come back to find another Fideliant.
Winged Helm (13 Magic Resist, +5 Strength, +3 Speed Heavy Helm) :
Slimes in Zertinan Cavarens rarely drop them. It's very easy to chain them,
Kill all slimes then zone back 2 zones and come back for more slimes.
I got my 1st Winged Helm at chain number 42.
Burning Bow (63 Attack Bow, Damage+50% when eqiuped with Firey Arrow) :
Very powerful when equiped with Firey Arrows, especially against enemies
that are weak against fire. Dive Talons in Dalmasca Westersand rarely drop
Burning Bows. You can try your luck with it, without chaining Dive Talons.
I have a tactic but its still require some luck. OK here it goes. Chain any
type of monster until highest chain level, easiest are wolves then find a
Dive Talon, Blind and Slow it, you should have bought Short Bows in Nalbina,
Use Short Bows to bring Dive talon to Critical, then Poison it and wait for
its death. By Posioning the Dive Talon, the chain won't break and Dive Talons
will Drop the high level chain. But one problem is that Dive Talon sometimes
use Kamikaze. If you're lucky it wont do Kamikaze and you get your loot and
it includes Burning Bow hopefully. Thats how i got my first Burning Bow.
Kotetsu (50 Attack Katana) :
Very Rare drop from Werewolves in Giza Plains. Since Warewolves are weak
against Wind, get at least 1 Gladius before chaining Warewolves.And you
should equip a Leather Shield with the Gladius. Leather Shields are available
at Nalbina Armor Shop.
Flame Staff (33 Attack Staff, Fire, Fira, Firaga Damage +50%) :
They are dropped by Dustia.(rare game)
Feathered Cap (18 Magic Resist, Magick Power+4 Mystic Helm)
Traveller's Vestment (16 Defence, Magick Power+5 Mystic Armor ) :
Sell : Water Stone x5 (Steal/Drop from Giza Rabbit in Giza Plains)
Braid Wool x2 (Drop from rare monster Greeden who Appears in Dalmasca
Eastersand/Bank of the Nebra, keep killing enemies in that section
until it appears, Don't kill any Cactoid.
Tanned Hide x2 (Steal from Wild Saurian in Dalmasca Estersand)
(Steal/Drop from Slaven in Giza Plains)
Cypress Pole (33 Attack, Element: Earth Pole) :
Sell : Earth Stone x4 (Steal/Drop from Cactoid, Slaven, Urstrix in
Dalmasca Westersand or Giza Plains)
Bone Fragment x5 (Drops from rare monster Fideliant in Dalmasca
Westersand, refer to Heavy Lance)
Succulent Fruit x3 (Drop/Steal Alraune in Dalmasca Westersand)
Bone Helm (22 Magic Resist, Strength+6,Dark Damage-50%, Weak:Holy Heavy Helm)
Effective against Dark Damage cuts it by half but the character eqiuping it
is weak against Holy so BEWARE!!!
Wild Saurian drops it very rarely and the bad thing is that you can't chain
Wild Saurian. I got one on 23th Wild Saurian kill, if you got tired of it
then skip getting it.
Hope this helps you beat the firemane...
PS: usualy i do this right after rougue tomato hunt...
