Screw you Square! You and the sadistic horse you rode in on!

I've been playing a little bit of FF12, and decided to try and catch up on item and bazaar stuff. While looking through the relevant faqs (speaking of which, screw you again Square for coming up with a bazaar system that requires you to consult a faq to do it even remotely efficiently) i found a reference to the "Fomalhaut", the most powerful gun in the game. It's supposed to be in a chest in the cave where you fought the Antlion, so i teleported to the mines and checked out the area, no chest. I reloaded just in case, still no chest.

The best description i've found so far of the location so far is: "The chest appears in the back of the cave past the green mantis' where the Antlion mark was at. The chest does not have a good spawn rate, but the Fomalhaut has a 50% chance of appearing as an item in the chest. There is a orange save crystal near the cave so save and reload a bunch - it shouldn't take that long to get it."

I've reloaded and checked out the area about a dozen times now though and still no chest. I _do_ remember going through this general area earlier when over at jmpava and coraa's place and saying something along the lines of "well i've got the Zodiac spear now, so i guess there's nothing else i can fuck up by opening random chests." I don't specifically remember opening a chest in _that_ spot, but i'm starting to get a worried feeling that i might have. And so far none of the sources i've checked have listed any other ways to get it! Who the hell puts the _only_ copy of the best weapon in a class in a randomly appearing chest which may randomly give you a knot of rust instead!!?! Fuckers!!! =P
