                   Final Fantasy Tactics Poaching List
                            Version 1.3 
                           By: Matt Hobbs

Well, I know a lot of FFT FAQs have poaching list, but for those who don't 
feel like growing older waiting for the entire FAQ to print out, just to get
the poaching list (well...it could happen...) I've created a quick and easy
poaching referance guide...enjoy!!
 V1.3 - Since I've gotten quite a few letters asking me what it was and how
        to get it, I've explained what and where the Ultimate Javelin is. 
 V1.2 - Added some item evaluations, and some of the ones I was missing
 V1.1 - Minor Corrections, added some item info and a way to get Wildbows
 V1.0 - First Version
It's probably common knowledge, but if you equip the thief's "Secret 
Hunt" ability and kill an enemy with it, you can go to a fur shop and 
claim a prize. This list contains (most) of FFT's enemies and what you 
get for poaching them. 

Note: Common means that you get this prize most often and Rare means 
that you only get this about one out of ten times. Commonly Found is 
where you're most likely to meet the enemy, and location names in ( ) 
mean you can find that particular enemy there most often.

-Item Info-------------------------------------------------------------------
This is some basic info on some of the rarer items you can get by poaching.

Barette - Red Chocobo 
Pretty good. It's HP increase is low, but it stops a lot of status ailments,
which can prove to be very valuable.

Cachusha - Porky 
Well, the Barette is better, as it stops more dangerous status changes, but 
the Cachusha isn't bad...

Ribbon - Wildbow 
Since it stops all status ailments, this is great!! Too bad the HP increase
is so horribly low...

Holy Lance - Sacred
Hmm... High Attack power, Holy Elemental, randomly casts Holy, easy to get...
you tell me...

Scorpion Tail - Hyudra
Pretty high attack power, but it's a mace...and has a low hit rate...

Madlemgen - Great Morbol
Not bad for a dictionary, but there are better items to be poached

Whale Whisker - Tiamat 
Just a stick... not bad, but you can do better.

Dragon Whisker - Red Dragon
Pretty good, but if you've found the ultimate Javelin, skip it.

Rubber Costume - Hydra 
The Rubber Costume...RULES!!! It raises your HP by 150!!! Not to mention the
fact that just about anyone can equip it!!! Want more? Ok, this little gem
also stops lightning attacks!!! GET THIS RIGHT AWAY!!!!!

FS Bag - Wildbow
Despite the power, this is still just a bag, and hits low quite often...

Stone Gun - Dark Behemoth
This gun would be great...that is, if it didn't petrify you at the start of 
the battle!! The gun itself is actually pretty powerful, but since you have 
to bring in a team member with the ability to cure stone, it lowers it's 
usefulness quite a bit...

Nagrarock - Porky
This is a strange sword... It only has an attack power of 1, but it has the 
ability to turn enemies into frogs!! (hehe) Have fun with this one!!

Zorlin Shape - Plague
Only slightly stronger than an Air Knife, but it can put enemies to sleep.

Chantage - Porky
If you're looking for a good accessory for your female characters, YOU'VE 
FOUND IT!!! The Chantage gives you automatic Regen and Reraise... NEITHER OF 
THESE EVER DISSAPPEAR!!! Thus meaning that the wearer is IMMORTAL!!!

Salty Rage - Red Dragon
Well...it isn't the Chantage, but the Salty Rage isn't bad either. It gives
the wearer automatic Protect and Shell.

Setiemson - Hydra
Another nice item. The Setiemson gives you automatic Transparent and Haste.
Cherche - King Behemoth
Skip this!! Float and Reflect are all this dog offers you!! And both are 

-Ultimate Javelin and Escutcheon---------------------------------------------
Yes, there is another version of the Javelin weapon, and of the Escutcheon
Shield. They are called the same things by the game, but I assure you, they
are very different!! Both of these items are found at Nelveska Temple. To get
them, make sure you have someone with the following requirements:

1. Move-Find Item (Chemist's Movement Skill)
2. At Jump height of at least 4 (Equipping Germinas Boots helps here)
3. Low Brave (30 or less, Rafa and Beowulf have fairly low brave, so they'd work)
4. A Dragon (including Reis), Tiamat, Morbol, Worker 8 or some other big monster
in the battle with you.

Now enter the battle there. Let the two Hyudras fly off the pillars, then 
kill them. Now put Worker 8 or your monster up next to the pillars and your
Move-Finder should be able to jump on top of them and reach the tops of the
two pillars. On top of them, you'll find a gold Escutcheon, and a tan Javelin.
If you're brave is too high, or you just get unlucky, you might get a normal,
weak version of either item. If this happens, just reset and try again. You
can also fidn some other interesting items here like a Sasuke Knife somewhere
back on the green hill behind the temple, and a Nagrarock in the very back of
the cave where Worker 7-New starts.

What's so good about the Ultimate Javelin and Escutcheon? Well, first of all,
The ultimate Javelin has an attack power of 30!! That makes it one of the best
weapons in the game, second only to the Chaos Blade!! And the Escutcheon has
a Defense power of 75 and a magic defense of 50, making it easily the best
shield in the game!! Be SURE to get these items, but remember, if you're 
already past Nelveska Temple, you can't get any of these...
If you'd like to use this list on your page, no problem. Just give me credit 
for it, don't alter it, and notify me first if possible.
