The Grim Reaper, Prince of Death, is one of the Notorious Mark Hunts in Final Fantasy 16.

The Grim Reaper, Prince of Death

Rank A

Location: Cape Orsiere, Sanbreque - on a hill just east of Westwatch

Reward: 45 renown, 15,000 gil

Combat Tips:

  • Prince of Death is a reaper-type enemy which strings together some additional attacks
  • This mark can use up to three projectile slashes in a row, which can catch you off guard if you're only expecting one, as is the case with regular reapers
  • When the beast's below half HP, it'll start using a combo attack that does big damage if more than a few hits should connect. It's easy enough to put some distance between you and the mark as this technique is winding up, but be warned that the Prince of Death does cover a lot of ground during this combo, and you may have no choice but to precision dodge the last couple of swings
  • All in all this is a relatively straightforward fight for this point in the game, but as with all reaper-style enemies, you need to delay your dodges just a bit for its normal attacks, as almost all of them are designed to bait you into an early movement. Dodge when you see the scythe starting to swing, not when the monster is first positioning itself
