|A Dark Chorus|
Golden Stilettos x1
"As beasts of the air, harpies are a threat most troublesome. What's more, their speed makes a mockery of ballistas, especially in tight quarters. You, then, must be swifter still. Strike them down with bowfire and magick."
From Cassardis, follow the road along the coast until you reach the Mountain Waycastle. Go up into the mountain pass. There are plenty of harpies here, nesting in trees along the road. Depending on how many spawn at a time, you may need to make several trips.
Harpies are not hard to kill: a magic or bow user can easily take them out of the sky. Once they are on the ground, they become vulnerable and can be killed in a few hits. A fighter with Skyward Slash can also cut them down as they fly low. Their only dangerous attack is their dive, which has a chance of picking you up and carrying you to great heights, where they will drop you (you can incur fall damage and even die from this at low levels). To get out of the harpie's grasp, wiggle the L stick. Harpies also sing, which can put you to sleep. Take a bringabout or peppermint seed, or wait for your pawns to come and wake you up.
