2.0 Introduction

This FAQ will detail all of the permanently missable items, materia, scenes,
mail, Missions, Shops, etc.  That's the long and the short of it.  If you have
any suggestions or corrections please contact me at scratchgamer@hotmail.com.

I'm talking UNIQUE things here people, not the Cursed Ring at the beginning of
the game, or the potion in mission x-x-x, but things that serve a singular,
specific purpose that can be left behind permanently.  While many of these
things can be obtained in a second playthrough, not everyone is into replaying
even a short game just for a few items.

One quick note before we get started, if you see (M) after the name of an item,
it indicates that it's Materia.

3.2      Materia
***********************


Phoenix (Summon) Materia    

- The first Wonder of Nibelheim, Chapter 9.  Speak to the boy standing outside
  of his house to start the Wonders quest.  He'll tell you about the first
  wonder, at this point go inspect the water tower, you'll find the Phoenix
  Materia, and it's all yours.

- Make sure to obtain this the first time you enter Nibelheim, certain events
  unfold that ensure you won't get another chance to obtain it in this game.

- To clarify, Summon materia is NOT carried over in New Game+, you'll have to
  obtain this the hard (re: incredibly easy, just late game) way every time.



DMW Limit Materia

- Meteor Shots, Lucky Stars, Octaslash, Rush Assault, Air Strike, Healing Wave
  are all DMW materia that can only be obtained from ONE place in this game, and
  that is from the Research Dept. QMC+ Shop, which is unlocked when you find the
  address in a chest in Gongaga in Chapter 10.

- These materia, like all non-summon materia, are carried over in New Game+.



*************************
3.3      SHOPS
*************************

**Shop access does not carry over to a New Game+


Research Dept. QMC+      - Found in a chest in Gongaga village in Chapter 10.

                         - Inventory: Firaga, Blizzaga, Thundaga, Hi-Potion,

                           DMW materia that it sells.  Missing out on the
                           Octaslash materia especially is a tough run, because
                           it helps greatly to allow Octaslash to activate in
                           the Magic Urn fight in which you can get the Genji
                           Shield.


The Happy Turle          - Found in a chest in Mission 4-3-6, which if not
                           unlocked before the end of Chapter 8 becomes
                           permanently unavailable.

                           inventory.

                           Amulet.

                         - Note that there is nothing unique about this shop's
                           inventory.


******************
3.4    ITEMS
******************

Genji Helm  - Not missable, but you should note that you can only buy this from
              Network Shop Shade ONCE.  You can buy as many as you like, but  
              once you make that first purchase you can buy no more until a
              subsequent playthrough.

*Grants No Ap/Mp Cost, Auto Libra


Genji Armor - Yes, this one is permanently missable.  To obtain this you must
              unlock all DMW characters and bring their % up to 100 by viewing
              every scene for every DMW character.  You miss this if you don't
              pick up the Phoenix Materia in Nibelheim.

*Break Hp Limit, Auto Regen, Auto Endure


All of Aerith's flower wagon materials (for 2nd and 3rd wagons) can be missed
if not obtained before the end of chapter eight, but they also can't be used
after that point anyway.  If enough people make a stink about it, I'll include
details on the flower wagons as well.


******************
3.5     Mail
******************


For Spoiler's sake I've not included the contents of the mail in this FAQ.  You
can find the word-for-word entries of any and all mail in my Mail FAQ, which is
also hosted on GameFAQs.

3.5.1 - Friends (2)|
-------------------/


**I'll give you a hint (Cissnei)**

-Talk to Cissnei during the event in Junon.  After the boss fight with the Gen.
 Tank, there is a mini game in the next area.  After this, ride the gondola up
 one level (right near the entrance from the last area, can't miss it) to view a
 scene with Cissnei.  Shortly after you'll receive the mail from Cissnei "I'll
 give you a hint."

-Receiving this mail is vital in allowing Zack to receive mail from the Zack
 Club (3 letters).


**The last wonder (Wonder Hunter)**

-Once you arrive in Nibelheim you'll find a small boy standing outside of the
 house closest to the town's entrance.  Speak with him to take upon the Wonders
 of Nibelheim sidequest.  

-Instead of reposting information that I obtained elsewhere, I'll simply give
 you the link to the FAQ I used.  Absolute Steve does great work on his FAQs,
 and this is no exception.  Simply search for "Seven Wonders" and you'll be
 brought to the part of his FAQ concerning this sidequest.

3.5.2 - Fan Club mail |
----------------------/

The following Fan Club mail can be permanently missed.  To ensure that you don't
miss any of the following, you'll want to join the four fan clubs as soon as
possible.  Red Leather, the Study Group and Keepers of Honor can be joined as
early as Chapter 3.  The Silver Elite (Sephiroth Fan Club) can't be joined
until Chapter 6.  The Zack Fan Club can't be joined until Chapter 8, and only if
you spoke with Cissnei in the optional scene in Junon.

To be recruited into a Fan Club you need to speak with a member and accept the
offer to join.

Silver Elite membership test:

themselves to be able to join.  The questions are laughably easy, here are the
answers anyway.

- Super Nova

3. What is Sephiroth's dominant arm?
