Cait (pronounced "cat") is a rare enemy in Octopath Traveler.

Battle[]

Caits have low HP, but high physical defense, elemental defense, and evasion. Boosted attacks are thus excellent at dealing significant damage to Caits. Soulstones and elemental attacks, which will never miss, are also effective.

Caits have a high chance to flee, but will also use the skill Grooming if it or another accompanying enemy is wounded.

A strategy to kill Caits is multiple attacks like arrowstorm, thousand spears. Or you can always use L or M Soul stones. Magic always hits.

When summoned by H'aanit's Beast Lore talent, Caits will use the skill Luck of the Cait. Luck of the Cait functions in a similar way manner to the Dancer skill Bewildering Grace with the notable distinction that all possible effects are beneficial to the party.

The possible effects are as follows:

Heterogeneous Cross Applies the following buffs to all party members:

Heterogeneous Break Applies the following debuffs to all foes:

The number of effects and their duration is dependent upon how many BP is spent to summon the Cait:

The same effect can trigger multiple times, stacking durations up to a maximum of 9 turns.

Trivia[]

  • In one of the Wellspring banters, Tressa thinks to herself: I guess this is why they say, "curiosity killed the cait".
  • Maw of the Ice Dragon is the only location where all three Cait variants, (Cait, Cultured Cait, and Chubby Cait), may be fought in the same encounter.
