Default Getting the Power Stone (SniperWild)

Does anyone have any tips on how to do this? I know what the SniperWilds are and where they are located. However, I can't seem to kill it without it spotting me. I have stopra unlocked but I am so far in the game (past hollow bastion) that the effects of stop are reduced. I can't freeze it long enough to even get close to attack it. So, I was hoping someone may have a tip to get by these. I am in pursuit of the Power Stone so I can finish off my synth lists so I can begin work on the ultima weapon. Thanks in advance!

Yeah those SniperWilds are a tricky bunch.

I assume you have abilities like "Lucky Strike" and "Encounter Up" equipped, right?

Here's some tips I can give you:
- Un-equip any extra "Combo Plus" abilities. You should leave only one equipped. This is so that you can do your finishers more quickly.
- Put the Stop & Thunder spell on shortcut, Stop to make things easier and Thunder to damage/distract one from calling others in case it spots you.

Get behind the one SniperWild and attack it. Cast Stop immediately if you're feeling cautious. After you kill that one, 2 more will spawn. Cast stop and try to do a quick combo on each one.

Repeat this for the next wave, the 3rd SW might not be in range of the Stop spell so be wary of its line-of-sight as you wail on the other two, then proceed to attack it.

Hey, Thanks for the tip! This is the second time I have heard about the ability: "Encounter-up". What approximate level does this unlock at because I am just shy of the ending and level 61?

I am looking for this because I have heard that the bizzare room is the only room where Gigas shadows will spawn, but everytime I go there they do not spawn.

Unfortunately you can't get it from leveling up, you have to get it from the Moogles in the synthesis shop in Traverse Town. They'll give you the ability once you synthesize 15 items. It'll cost 1 AP to equip it. Hope this helps!

I encountered a Black Ballade in Deep Jungle and they move so fast its so hard to determine which is the right one to hit after they all switch around.

Yeah, they seem to go even faster around the 3rd or 4th guess.
I just spam the pause button and track it.

How long would you say it took total to get all synthesis materials?

Made an account specifically for this particular, god awful creation.

After an hour of beating my head against the wall. Finally said to hell with it, and went completely berserk on them. Believe it or not it worked.

First guy I went after I cast stop, killed it. Two more popped up, immediately cast stop again, destroyed it then immediately jumped to the other one (was not effected by stop). When they scatter, it's almost as if they drop aggro so to speak, because no alarms went off. If you're lucky, they will slip on their own banana peel (when this happened my wife gave me an odd look when I yelled "YOU'RE MINE" at the top of my lungs).

Simply put, used stop only when I couldn't catch up to the thing. Beat the crap out of the others and didn't stop until they quit spawning. Got 3 power stones.
