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. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ B O S S B A T T L E ++++++++++++++++++++++++ +--------------------------------------------------+ | Aeon | |==================================================| | HP: 10,060 | Difficulty: Uber Easy | |--------------------------------------------------| | Exp: 10,2000 | Just keep attacking | | | with relentless attacks | | | and your best moves.

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! --------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------Credits & Thank Yous [caty]---------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Thank you to Dr. Pepper, for your pop (and all of its 23 flavours) have kept my needs satisfied while making this. 2. Kevin Bosman for pointing out that the Weightslayer cannot be equipped by a Warrior. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------About the Author [ata]--------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------------- I thought I'd let people know about me, and about the person who just game you tub loads of information. My name is Dylan Hinds, I play video games and love music. Mostly rap and hip-hop. But not the mainstream hip-crap. I mean underground people that you've probably never heard of. I'm 15 years old and I go to Westmount high school in Hamilton Ontario. I live in Canada with my mom and my two cats, names Sephiroth and Shiva (Yes, those are their real names) in a pretty small apartment. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------Legal Info [lgli]------------------------------ --------------------------------------------------------------------------- This guide is copyright (c) Dylan Hinds 2007.
