Final Fantasy XV A Meat Most Magnificent Side Quest Walkthrough
Final Fantasy XV A Meat Most Magnificent is the last side-quest in Takka’s quest-line, and it is a bit more difficult than the previous quests you have completed for him.
To play A Meat Most Magnificent you also need to meet several requirements. First, you have to complete all Takka’s previous side-quests, including Lestallum’s Finest.
Second, Noctis must be a rank 4 hunter, because for A Meat Most Magnificent you have to complete a specific hunt, as detailed below.
Finally, your party’s level must be close to 38, in order to defeat the mighty Catoblepas.
Assuming you meet all these requirements, travel to Hammerhead and talk to Takka to begin the quest.
Objective: Obtain a Catoblepas Brisket
After you speak to Takka, he will inform you that he needs a Catoblepas Brisket, which can be obtained only by slaying a Catoblepas.
The important thing you have to remember is that you can’t engage the creature directly, therefore head to Coernix Station – Alstor and visit the diner.
Talk to the tipster inside and start the Marsh Madness! The Giant Awakens hunt quest. Keep in mind that this is a rank 4 hunt, which means that it can only be unlocked by leveling up your hunter rank.
This can be done by completing hunts available at local diners.
If your rank is higher than 4, start the said hunt, then head south towards the location on your map.
The Catoblepas is a large creature but it is very slow. When you fight it, use a polearm and ice spells to deal 120% damage.
Furthermore, the drop rate for a Catoblepas Brisket is 50% which means that if you don’t get the meat for Takka on your first attempt, you have to replay the hunt.
Warp-strike to the creature’s legs and order Ignis to enhance your polearm with ice for increased damage.
When the creature falls to the ground, activate the Armiger and keep attacking it.
Once you defeat the beast, report back to the tipster to complete the hunt. If you didn’t get the Catoblepas Brisket, start the hunt again.
On the other hand, if you get the Catoblepas Brisket on your first try, your objective will change.
Objective: Deliver the Ingredient to Takka
After you turn-in the hunting quest, travel back to Hammerhead and give Takka the Catoblepas Brisket. As a result, you will receive the rewards listed below, and Takka will be able to serve the Sizzling Humongo-Steak at his restaurant.
Make sure you try this dish because Ignis will discover a new recipe.
