Hey there, I'm Mason, better known on GameFAQs as _Mace_.  This is my first
attempt at writing a FAQ, something I've always wanted to do, but never felt
as if I had enough of a purpose to do so.  Well after many, many years of
playing video games, mostly RPGs, I felt it was necessary that I at least
try my hand in helping others enjoy a game that has brought me so much
happiness.  The FFX board is one of my usual hang-outs, and I noticed another
user, Kikiorie45, talking about tackling a Yuna Only No Summons FAQ.  I was
instantly intrigued, so I asked him if I would be of any service to him.  We
hit it off that very minute, I loaded up a save and got my game under way.
Not too soon into the project, Justin informed me that I would be taking
over the helm, and writing the FAQ myself.  A daunting task indeed, this was
my chance to check off one of the things on my "to do" list.  A topic
concerning the creation of this FAQ was created on the boards, and it
instantly had an overwhelming surge of users commenting on it, helping out,
and showing genuine interest.  Right then I knew this was something that I
would see through to the very end.  Many of the board's vets and SCC
specialists have come along to help me on my adventure, and to support me as
I delved into the unknown.  There was one user who had publicly attempted
this challenge before, and had made a daring attempt before falling just
short at Braska's Final Aeon.  Sadly she had customized the wrong abilities
onto her armor, and was unable to legitimately procure the goods she needed
to make the necessary armor.  Her username was CrystalBangle, and the
thought that she had striven so valiantly, and came up just short was rather
inspiring for me, another reason to complete this task.  Not had I ever 
played this game so fervently, I was enjoying myself even whilst farming 
Ragoras for weapon drops.  I can hardly believe that I would study and learn
so much about this game is such a short while.  Some people have written off 
this challenge as a waste of time, which is fine by me, but I'm having a blast
doing what not many others have done.  I would now like to pass my knowledge
and hard work on to you, the gamer, so that you may have an opportunity to test
the limits of your patience, sanity, and perseverance in the most tediously
difficult challenges I've ever played.  Enjoy!

I know what some of you are thinking.

"Imposhibibble!  How do we even hurt bosses, or take out random enemies?"
There are three things that make this challenge possible.  They are:  Holy,
Customized/Dropped Weapons, and a whole lot of patience.  There are two 
points in the challenge where we must massively power level to learn a skill 
for taking out a boss.  The first time is learning Reflect before the Sinspawn
Gui fight, which is impossible without Reflect.  The second time is learning
Holy before the Anima fight, as she is impossible without it in our arsenal, and
even then you have to be somewhat fortunate.  For anyone adding No Items to
their challenge, you'll have to learn HOLY before Sinspawn Gui.

If there was ever a recurring theme in this challenge, it would be 
"Preparation".  I know that that can be said about any challenge, but it 
holds true even more so in this game.  As I said, there will be two areas in 
which we must power level, and there will be a few areas where we'll be 
harvesting Fiends for weapon/armor drops.  The game clock in my first run
through was well over 100 hours.  If you aren't a patient person, I'd advise
you to not try this challenge.
