Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age Guide: How To Unlock Espers

Espers come in three different levels, distinguishable by their summoning costs. Once you defeat a particular esper, it appears on the license board. Espers can only be assigned to one character so choose carefully as you cannot change this later on. Also, espers are tough fights so leave the higher ones until later in the game.

Espers have no charge time and they replace two of your party members in battle. They can be summoned under the ‘Mist’ battle menu. Tricky to activate, but if you can trigger their final attacks, the damage dealt is just insane.

And now, here is the list of all espers and their locations.
