How To Farm Hypello Potions in FFX (Steal + Bribe)This post may contain affiliate links. If you buy something we may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. (Learn more).
There are a few reliable ways to get Hypello Potions, but the quickest method is by bribing Bunyip fiends. A bribe of 8,000 Gil will earn you x16 Potions, which is the perfect amount since everything you can customize requires factors of eight Potions.
Bunyip fiends can be found on the Djose Highroad, Djose Temple, and on the Moonflow.
But if you don’t want to spend money, you can also steal Hypello Potions from Shred or Halma fiends.
Shreds have x1 Hypello Potion to steal, and Halma have x3. Stealing is a slower method of farming here, but there’s nothing cheaper than something free!
Shreds can be found in the Calm Lands, while Halma can be found in the Omega Ruins.
What Are Hypello Potions Used For?
Theshe potionsh make you shpeak like a Hypello!
Nah, jusht kidding.
They actually let you customize Berserk Ward and Berserk Proof onto your armor.
As you’d expect, these abilities resist the Berserk status effect, which can make a character attack uncontrollably (but also increases their damage by 50%). Berserk Ward resists this effect 50% of the time, and Proof resists it 100% every time.
Here’s what you’ll need for these armor abilities:
- Berserk Ward requires 8 Hypello Potions to customize
- Berserk Proof requires 32 Hypello Potions to customize
Rikku can also mix it up with Hypello Potions for a variety of interesting results, a few of which are:
Super Mighty G (Chocobo Feather + Hypello Potion): Casts Protect, Shell, Haste, and Regen onto the whole party.
Ultra Null-All (Healing Spring + Hypello Potion): Applies Cheer, Focus, Aim, Reflex, NulBlaze, NulShock, NulTide, and NulFrost to the whole party.
Ultra-Cure (Ability Distiller + Hypello Potion): Fully restores the party’s HP and cures all negative status effects.
Are Hypello Potions Worth Farming?
Not only are they useful for Rikku’s mixes, but also having protection against berserk is kind of super important for a particular boss fight in the latter half of the game.
Plus you can stock up on Hypello Potions with Bunyip fairly early in the game – and you’ll be glad you did.
Don’t worry about the Gil, it’s not really that much.
