The Epic of Gilgamesh is another Large Guardian event in Glaverow Volcanic Zone. See the Large Guardian page for details on hunting. The major difference between Bahamut's Descent and the Epic of Gilgamesh, is that all the Large Guardians have the same shape: Giant. This removes the possibility of resetting the Large Guardian if you saw a shape you didn't want.
