 << Short form >> -------------------------------------------------------------
------------------

 Here's a short form list that I use to descript
 Gilgamesh's arms in the battle.

  R1 = Gilgamesh's Right arm 1 (front)
  R2 = Gilgamesh's Right arm 2 (back bottom)
  R3 = Gilgamesh's Right arm 3 (back top)

  L1 = Gilgamesh's Left arm 1 (front)
  L2 = Gilgamesh's Left arm 2 (back bottom)
  L3 = Gilgamesh's Left arm 3 (back top)


---------------------
 << Using Weapons >> ----------------------------------------------------------
---------------------

Here we go, a very interested part in the game;
a list of Gilgamesh's using weapons.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 << 1st Battle >>

Gilgamesh uses the normal Katana at the beginning, until the his HP down
to 60% to makes his first change.

- FIRST CHANGE -
Event: Gilgamesh takes out Buster Sword (he uses the Revolver as well).

  R1 = Buster Sword           L1 = Revolver
  R2 = Katana                 L2 = Katana
  R3 = Katana                 L3 = Katana


- SECOND CHANGE -
Event: Gilgamesh takes out Orichaclum.

  R1 = Orichalcum             L1 = Revolver
  R2 = Katana                 L2 = Buster Sword
  R3 = Katana                 L3 = Katana


- THIRD CHANGE -
Event: Gilgamesh takes out Tournesol.

  R1 = Tournesol              L1 = Revolver
  R2 = Orichalcum             L2 = Buster Sword
  R3 = Katana                 L3 = Katana


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 << 2nd Battle >>

- BEGINS BATTLE -

  R1 = Brotherhood            L1 = Revolver
  R2 = Orichalcum             L2 = Buster Sword
  R3 = Katana                 L3 = Tournesol


- FIRST CHANGE -
Event: Gilgamesh takes out Zantetsuken (when 60% HP left).

  R1 = Zantetsuken            L1 = Revolver
  R2 = Orichalcum             L2 = Buster Sword
  R3 = Brotherhood            L3 = Tournesol


- SECOND CHANGE -
Event: Gilgamesh takes out Tournesol.

  R1 = Tournesol              L1 = Revolver
  R2 = Orichalcum             L2 = Buster Sword
  R3 = Brotherhood            L3 = Zantetsuken


- THIRD CHANGE -
Event: Gilgamesh raises the Sword of Legend.
Note : Gilgamesh says it "Blade of Legend".
       Tournesol has disappeared during the scene.

  R1 = Tournesol              L1 = Sword of Legend
  R2 = Orichalcum             L2 = Buster Sword
  R3 = Brotherhood            L3 = Zantetsuken


- VANQUISHED -
Event: Victory post.

 The sword left was the Sword of Legend, named Loto's Sword in the
 Dragon Quest series; name of Japanese version was "To Ro no Ken",
 it should be "Tolo Sword"; suprisingly this weapon has been renamed
 as "Wyrmhero Blade" for the US version.



===============================================================================
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  4. Remaining Quest
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
===============================================================================

After defeating Gilgamesh and Enkidu, you can obtain five coloured bottles
through the Fishing Mini-game. Find five letters according to the hintd in
the bottles. To start the Fishing Mini-game, you must first clear the first
part of Barheim Key quest. You can have a look on my FAQ by the link below,
and check "Back To Barheim Passage" section.

Here:
http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/final_fantasy_xii_b.txt

Something like a puzzle, if you like to solve this quest by yourself, skip
this paragraph. Four of them are the locations displayed in the links below,
the remaining letter is located in Cerobi Steppe. Ensure No. 1, 2, 5, 7, 9
windmaills are on and 3, 4, 6, 8, 10 windmills are off in order to get the
letter.

Here are the other four letters' location:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v515/sephiroth_y/Guide/bottle2.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v515/sephiroth_y/Guide/bottle3.jpg
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v515/sephiroth_y/Guide/bottle5.jpg


With all five letters obtained, find Gilgamesh and Enkidu in Barheim Passage
to get the demon rod, Matamune; assuming you have gotten the Barheim Key.
The locations is here:

Finally back to Fishing Mini-game and keep fishing. You will eventually
unlocked all fishing spot and obtain Lu Shang's Badge, which is one of
the three loots to trade with the Sword of Legend, Wyrmhero Blade.
