	Hello, and welcome to my Weapon Guide for Square-Enix's game, Final
Fantasy III for Nintendo's DS. If you are reading this right now, then I
assume that you are hoping to find a list of all the weapons.
Unfortunately, you are in the wrong place. What you will find in this guide
is a list of all the weapons, their stats, any special effects the weapon 
has... You name it. It is listed here. And to add to my dedication to your
happiness and love of gaming, I will throw in a complete in-depth guide to
getting the Ultima Weapon (including the sidequests, legendary blacksmith,
you know, the essientials).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

A few things...

      If you find ANYTHING wrong with the guide (I don't really care about
spelling and gramatical errors) feel free to e-mail me the correct 
information, and it will be corrected, giving you the credit. If you have 
any additional info that you feel needs to be included, then again, go 
ahead and e-mail me your suggestions, and credit will be given where it is 
due.

------------------10 Plagiarism Commandments [10pc]------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

	These are the 10 plageriarism commandments. You shall read these,
and you shall live by them. Should you choose to neglect these commandments,
I shall come and smite you off the planet, and probably inflcit massive pain
by ripping your.. Well.. Let's not even go there, as I suppose some readers
are young, and I don't want this guide to contain spoilers, or nightmares.

	Come, read them aloud with me.

1) Thou shalt have no other names on this guide before me. 

2) Thou shalt not maketh thy guide your own.

3) Thou shalt not take the name of the lord thy Dylan in vain; 
   for the lord will show no mercy for those who taketh thy guide as your own.

4) Remember the sabbath day of Dylan's guide writing, to keep it holy.

5) Honour thy true author.

6) Thou shalt not kill thy guide by putting your name upon it.

7) Thou shalt not commit plagiarisim, unless thou wishes to lose thy gift 
   of functioning/breathing.

8) Thou shalt not steal my work, for should you, thou shall eat the rest of
   thy meals through a tube.

9) Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour, should I taketh
   thy plagairists behind to a stick o' dynamite.

10) Thou shalt not covet to steal these holy manuscripts.

	Now that thats settled, we can get into the guide. Thank you for
your cooperation.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------Boo-ya-ka-sha!--------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

	Now that I have given you that rather lengthly list and stats of
weapons in the game, here is the bonus feature. As promised, here is a full
length guide as to obtaining the Ultima Weapon. Prepare yourself.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------Weapon Info [iotw]----------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

	Well, I'm pretty sure the name says it all: it's ultimate. It is 
the second best weapon in the entire game of Final Fantasy III, and the 
best one is ONLY 1 stat higher, so they are basically the same, Although,
The Ultima Weapon gives a whoopin' 15+ to all Stats!!

Getting it  is a pretty good idea, unless you intend on getting full Onion 
Knight equipment and a level 93-99 party. But even then, killing the 
Dragons in "???" are no walk in the park, meaning having this lovely peice 
of weaponry in your arsenal will benifet you greatly. 

The Ultima Weapon can be eqipped to the following jobs; Freelancer, 
Red Mage, Warrior, Onion Knight, Knight, and the Dark Knight. So if one of 
your characters has one of those jobs, they should be set for the rest of 
the game, after you get the Ultima Weapon. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------What needs to be done [wntbd]-----------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

	What needs to be done in order to actually get the weapon? Two 
simple sidequests. Well, if you're underleveled and aren't very smart with 
your tactics, you might be in on a run for your money. I suggest being in 
the level area of 40 or above. You need to complete the sidequests "Fix 
Sara's Pendant", and "Finding the Orichalcum". Then you must find the 
legendary blacksmith a second time (the first time is during the "Fix 
Sara's Pendant" sidequest"). Another thing, you MUST have control over the 
Invicible airship (to get to Falgabard).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------Fix Sara's Pendant [fsp]-------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

	One of two sidequests you must do. Quite simple, not very hard and 
doesn't require any fighting (except with the DS if you can't find 
something). To activate this sidequest, you must first send a few messages 
to Sara via Mognet, untill she sends you a letter titled "Help!". When you 
receive this, head over to to Princess Sara at Castle Sasune. She is located 
on the right side of the entrance, at the top of the tower. Speak with her 
to find out that her pendant has broken, and Ingus tells her he will find
someone to repair it for her. 

	Now I have no idea how SQUARE-ENIX expected players to be able to 
find this without a guide or someone who had already done it (but then 
how'd that person do it?), because there is no indication as to where, or 
who you are looking for. Except for a letter from Cid that says there is a 
legendary blacksmith that travels all over the world. Oh, thanks Cid, for 
proving me no help at all, but I still love you because your in enough FF 
games that you could stab me through the DS screen, and I wouldn't care. 

	*Clears throught* Anyways... Take your airship and head over to 
North-Western Saronia. The legendary smith is found here. She is outside, 
in a patch of grass. After speaking with her, she agrees to fix the pendant 
for you under one condition; should you ever come to find yourself some 
Orichalcum, you will take it to her, in order for her to just use the metal, 
and that whatever she comes up with with is yours (Oh, how I wonder, what 
in the world could it be?). 

	Take the fixed pendant back to Sara at Sasune castle, and give it 
to her. C'mon, give it to her, all nice and shiny like you promised. She 
was begging you for it, you better give it to her or else I'll come 
through this monitor and brake your nose :). Done? Good. Let us depart for
the next sidequest.



---------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------Finding the Orichalcum [fto]---------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

	This sidequest requires a boss fight. But it really isn't that 
hard. To initiate this sidequest, you must first exchange letters with both 
Takka and Cid via Mognet. Cid will then reply with a message titled 
"Someting in the basement". After you receive this take a trip over to 
Canaan, and speak with good ol' box of information known as Cid. He informs 
you that there is a monster in his basement looking for a permanant 
residence, and it seems quite comfy downstairs. After learning about what 
the mission is, venture into the basement. 

	Now how about you give the monster a welcoming gift, huh? I think 
a taste of your blade and some magic would do nicely. Go talk to him to 
initiate the battle.

|                        | you're good enough, you |
|                        | can finish the battle   |

|                        | difficulty. Enjoy.      |
+--------------------------------------------------+

	Once you've pwned this uber noob, it appears he has left you a 
small token of appreciation, an Orichalcum! Oh joy, now you get to tell 
your best resource of information, Cid! Nah, I'm yanking your chain. Forget 
Cid. Now you need to find that darned legendary blacksmith... But she
travels the entire world constantly, how in the Zantetsuken are you
supposed to find her AGAIN!?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------Locating the Legendary Smith [ltls]-------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

	Couldn't find her on your own? Ah, hell, that's what I'm here for. 
Now that you have fixed Sara's pendant AND obtained the Orichalcum, you are 
ready to go searching... But wait! For some unexplained reason, that chick 
doesn't seem to go to her location untill you take a vacation over at 
Eureka. So go over to the other side of the world and go through the maze, 
and then enter the Crystal Tower. Now all you need to do is unlock the door 
to Eureka, so just head straight, up some stairs and into the doors room. 
Go over to the mirror-looking door and unlock it. 

	Now that that is out of the way, you may now go searching. 
Have fun...! *Waits a few minutes* Ah, I guess I could help you out again, 
only because I love you though... And don't tell anyone I told you that, 
alright? Good. Hop into your Invincible and head over to Saronia. A little 
bit South-West from Saronia (not too much) is a pathway in the mountains. 
Right near the entrance to this convienantly placed path, is a set of 
lower mountains. Low enough for your airship to hop over. Hop over them, 
and any other mountains that stand in you path. 

	Once you are in a small, open area, you have arrived at your 
targets location. Fly a bit west untill you see a town, now land your 
ship near it, and like a scared baby, head in. Go find the Inn, and once 
you have found it, there should be a familiar character waiting for you. 
No, it's not Garland. It's the legendary blacksmith! Yes!! You've finally 
found her! Go talk to her, and a scene will be born. Then the end of that
scene will give birth to your brand new Ultima Weapon! Congrats, you've
just gained the second best weapon in the entire game!
