This enemy should be attacked from a moderately-high range. It is basically the same as the Green Cap Mushroom, except that it is slightly stronger since it's poison attack lasts a little longer than that of the Green Cap Mushroom. Freeze type weapons will be helpful for melees to attack it. A Gunner's Bazooka 2 will also take off a lot of this enemy's LP. It would be somewhat wise to grind for its Staff of Light, due to its high sell price, as it will be of great help for Gunners later on.
