FINAL FANTASY XII: THE ZODIAC AGE – Monographs

WHAT IS A MONOGRAPH?? A Monograph is a, “KEY ITEM,” that you can obtain from the BAZAAR in Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age that increases the chances of RARE LOOT from MONSTERS and even increases the chance that MONSTERS will drop 2 ITEMS instead of just one. They are shown as “Forgotten Grimoire” in the Bazaar once you unlock them and you unlock them different ways. They are expensive, especially early on when money is hard to come by, but they are well worth the price. Here is how you unlock all of them, what they do, and how much they cost in the Zodiac Age.
