(FF12) Final Fantasy XII – The Zodiac Age : How To Get The Seitengrat (Best Bow Weapon) Location Guide

After months of grueling training and hundreds of hours in the virtual world, the Zodiac Braves are finally ready to face their most important mission yet: to defeat the Zodiac King and save the world.

Final Fantasy XII has always been notorious for being one of the hardest games in the series to get through, but with the release of the Zodiac Age there is a new guide for fans to use. This guide will help you locate the Seitengrat (best bow weapon) in the game, which will come in handy for the fights against bane and other bosses.

The Seitengrat is a bow that looks like it comes from a cross between an ice dragon’s tail and the chain of a minotaur. The weapon has a unique attack, where an arrow fired from it flies forward and hits the ground, and then rises into the air before exploding on impact. You can also fire a Seitengrat in the air and it will come back down on its target. Furthermore, the bow’s fire attack can set enemies on fire.


The sidegrath is probably the best archery weapon in the entire game, and also an invisible weapon.

It is one of four secret pieces of equipment added to the game and has a range twice that of any other ranged weapon in the game.

You will have to be very lucky to get it though and it won’t be easy as it took me hours, I mean HOURS, to find one.


Speed – Range: 20 shots (flight)
Attack: 224
Dodge : 75
Criticism : 25%

The weapon itself can be found on the Rabanastra airship in Nalbanu, and how to get it can be seen in the video tutorial below.
