Wild Artifact Locations

    Archylte Steppe ??? AF:

  1. In the far northwestern corner of the map, look over the cliff’s edge to find this Wild Artifact. You’ll need Moogle Throw to collect it. Look just below the cliff, it can be collected once you have access to the Clearwater Marshes.
  2. Sunleth Waterscape 300 AF:

  3. While riding the large beast on the Animal Trail, look east and use Moogle Throw to collect this Wild Artifact.
  4. Bresha Ruins 005 AF:

  5. Just as you get the Moogle Hunt ability, use it just north of Chocolina’s Shop, just southwest of the Blue Gate.
  6. Oerba Village 200 AF:

  7. Find the Wild Artifact in the northwestern section of the map, look out from the balcony for a crevice far along the wall, under an overhang. Use the Moogle Throw ability to get your hands on this hidden artifact.
  8. Bresha Ruins 300 AF:

  9. Appears in the Lamentable Rest area, in the northeastern section of the map, after completing the Iridium Ring sidequest.
  10. Academia 400 AF:

  11. Defeat Zenobia in New Town, found in the northwestern corner of New Town. Use Moogle Hunt, and you’ll find the artifact. Use it on the gate in the northern part of New Torn to unlock Augusta Tower 200 AF.
  12. Augusta Tower 200 AF:

  13. Reach the 50th Floor and use Moogle Hunt on the westernmost middle walkway.
  14. Yaschas Massif 100 AF:

  15. You’ll be rewarded with this artifact after completing the Book of Shambala Temporal Rift. Found out in the open, in the northern part of the Massif, in the Paddraean Archaeopolis.
  16. A Dying World 700 AF:

  17. After completing this area, return at a later time and examine the goddess statue next to the gate. Perform a Moogle Hunt next to the Oracle Drive, and you’ll enter a cutscene. Reply to the Live Trigger with “I can do this.”
  18. Serendipity ??? AF:

  19. Purchase from the Casino Vendor in the Hall of Gaming for 10,000 Casino Coins. Use the “Deflation” fragment to lower the price by 25%.

I check numerous time in Academia 400 AF and I find no wild artifact instead I find at 4xx AF at the Alley – Grand Avenue. If you find at this place prove with solid evidence.

can someone please tell me how to get to academia?

Ren

On February 6, 2012 at 5:47 pm

the one mentioned in academia 400af is the “tower artefact” In academia 4XXaf is a wild artefact in the southeast alleys. as someone who used (and was misguided) I hope this helps

By the way does anyone have recommendations for best healing monster

OkamiGeisha

On February 8, 2012 at 7:30 am

Early in the game, Cait Sith is useful as a healer. Later on replace it with a Flanitor or a Green Chocobo. Those are the best Medics I’ve found so far.

Eric

On February 8, 2012 at 12:58 pm

how about the white chocobo

Ren

On February 8, 2012 at 6:04 pm

I’m having a hard time getting the wild artifact in oerba 200 af. I see it on the ledge, but I can’t get my moogle to get it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

kenenth84

On February 9, 2012 at 5:34 pm

wendy

On February 16, 2012 at 7:14 pm

@jana, i think you need to get on a chocobo to reach that artefact

Bob

On February 19, 2012 at 5:58 am

@Jana all you have to do is stand directly in line with it so mog has nothing to bounce off of. I hope this helps some people :P

The wild artefact in Oerba 200AF is on the roof next near Chocolina. You need the chocobo to jump to it

Brandon

On March 10, 2012 at 3:36 pm

The wild artefact in Oerba is obtained by using moogle throw to toss mog to it… you don’t need a chocobo.

Taiju

On March 10, 2012 at 3:46 pm

Your info on the wild artefact that leads to yashas massif 100af is wrong, the artefact is found in academia 4xx af not 400af, wasted like 30 minutes looking around before checking a youtube video for the actual location. All the rest seem to check out so thanks.

Ramon

So theres only 1 wild artifact per gate right? That means I really need to buy the wild artefact in serendipity.
