Wandering Monsters

The following are methods of turning any monster into a wandering monster that can be encountered in other zones, as well as their potential limitations.

1 - 3 copies are made if the Obtuse Angel has the quake of arrows equipped, or 2 otherwise.
2 - The MP cost starts at 20 MP, but is reduced by 1 per SPAM chip (max of 10) and 5 with an ASHRAM chip (max of 1) installed in your Source Terminal.
3 - The first monster that is digitized will take 7 turns to show up, then 20, 30, 40, 50, etc. Recasting Digitize will reset this counter, even if it is on the same monster as before.

The following table, meanwhile, contains specific monsters that are wandering by design. Monsters from previous world events are excluded from this list.

Phylum Sniff

Some methods of sniffing out monsters are used to track all monsters of a select phylum, adding additional copies of all monsters of the aforementioned type (regardless of location) rather than an individual monster. These fully stack with each other.

Note, however, that banishing is less effective when used in tandem with this mechanic, for banishing only removes one copy, leaving the extras added by the phylum sniff in place. As such, it is less ideal when you need to fight a specific monster.

The following methods are used during combat to immediately steal a random item that the monster can potentially drop. Unlike Pickpocket, it will always steal the item in question, regardless of the base drop chances. If there are multiple items, however, each has an equal probability of being stolen, and can only be done if you did not already Pickpocket an item beforehand. Only one item can be stolen per fight, and most have a limit in regards to how many times they can be used to steal an item per day.
