I love this game a lot, on a purely materialistic level, its not romance, and I'm going to be talking about this game as one who has played the Final Fantasy Tactics on the GBA, so I decided to start on hard mode, and that may be a problem for some, but if you are playing normal, it will be easier than you would be reading in this guide, that's for sure. Without further ado, lets begin. Oh, for translation, I'm using the PAL version of the game, or the European/ Australian version of the game. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [1.02] Version History Version 0.1 [4/7/08] Took plunge into the unknown by starting this guide.

Version 2.5 [28/7/08] Added more on Gria classes, except for Geomancer. Well, I was going to add more quests, but a blackout occured, and that wiped out a lot of time. Damn electricity companies. Wait till I get a double 6 and purchase you for $150. Version 2.6 [29/7/08] Okay, given the blackout yesterday and I'm back at University, this is a relatively big update. Gria Classes are complete. Seeq Classes are nearly complete and more quests have been added. Version 2.7 [30/7/08] Finished off the Seeq classes and completed the part on Auctions that I was meant to do before. Now that is complete, and seperated into to parts, one is general, and one is more indepth. Version 2.8 [31/7/08] Last day of July, and 4 weeks of straight updates. And I realise that I can't do Brightmoon Tor for you guys, damn NA version not being the same as my version. I'll see what I can do for you, like read how to do it, and thank someone for their work. Anyway, Moogle classes done. More on Viera and Blue Mage. And then I realise, the PAL version has it. Version 2.9 [1/8/08] Pinch and a punch for the first day of the month. Anyway, completed the Viera classes. Next update and the next few ones for that matter, will complete the classes still mission, Bangaa and Nu Mou. Version 3.0 [2/8/08] A month of straight updates. No denying that that is devotion right there. All the Bangaa classes are now complete. Version 3.1 [3/8/08] Added some jobs for the Nu Mou class. One single quest done, and more loot has been added. Slow day today. Version 3.2 [4/8/08] Classes Complete. Finally. Few more missions added, bit of loot, more on the bestiary. Version 3.3 [5/8/08] Update system for Gamefaqs.com is broken, so by the time this is up, you've been seeing Version 3.0 for half a week. Anyway, finished more missions, and thats about it. Version 3.4 [6/8/08] More quests done, and more loot added. Man, this is getting more of a chore, but still fun. Version 3.5 [7/8/08] 5 Weeks of straight updates. Finished up to 141 missions, several more random encounters, a bit of descriptions. And fixed some typos. Version 3.6 [8/8/08] Olympics! Nah, too boring, didn't even watch the last one. The opening ceremony wasn't all that bad however. Anyway, onto the work, more missions are done. One more clan trial done. Version 3.7 [9/8/08] More quests done, loot fully complete. One more recipe for Bazaar, on Hurdy's Requests to finish that off. Expect the items to come soon. Version 3.8 [10/8/08] Me no feel so well. More missions done, loot and bazaar complete. Version 3.9 [11/8/08] Started on the items part of the guide. Completed usable items, knives and swords. Nearly reached the 1MB mark of the guide, which makes this the biggest guide I have at this point in time. Version 4.0 [12/8/08] More items are added, up to Rapiers. Version 4.1 [13/8/08] A nice update today, completed all the weapons. Might not update at all, or maybe a little bit tomorrow, due to other issues. I really don't want to break my 6 week roll at the moment. Version 4.2 [14/8/08] Small update, bringing up the quests complete to 160 out of 300. I should be doing a bit more, but it does take a bit of time. I plan to get the items out of the way as soon as possible, since that is the most tedious, then the quests, adding in parts about Scions, Chocobos, and hopefully, the First Brightmoon Tor guide for this game that has been long overdue. Version 4.3 [15/8/08] This is getting a bit hurried. I want to complete this hopefully by the 28th, which gives me a week to tidy up my other guides before Spore comes out. Gotta love early pre-order dates, 4th of September. A few more quests added. Version 4.4 [16/8/08] Many more quests added to this guide. Version 4.5 [17/8/08] More Quests done. Story Advanced. Clan Trials Complete. Version 4.6 [18/8/08] More Quests added. If only Bonga Bugle - Plumfrost didn't force me to reset a gazillion times. Version 4.7 [19/8/08] Well, a few more quests added bring the total up to 199 I believe. Not bad, still 101 to go, and a fair amount of items, and a fair amount of other stuff such as Scions and Laws. Version 4.8 [20/8/08] More quests, 2 more storylines missions to go. Clan Primer with more entries and sorted out, it is no longer a text dump. Complete with Alphabetical Order and sorted out by article type. A lot more housekeeping done, Quest Summary is updated. Tomorrow will be a big update on items. Version 4.9 [21/8/08] 7 Weeks of straight updates. There are two complete Guides on Gamefaqs, but I don't think they're complete, this when complete, will be MASSIVE. No items as I promised, but more quests, massive primer update and thats it. Version 5.0 [22/8/08] Two more updates and this will be my most updated guide. Big update on items, finished up to Instruments for Bludegons. Hammers, Maces and Books next. Version 5.1 [23/8/08] All the items are finished up until the ranged items, not bad at all. Version 5.2 [24/8/08] More quests are done and added, all the items until the helms section are now complete. Version 5.3 [25/8/08] More quests are added, but not a lot considering I'm a bit lazy today. Version 5.4 [26/8/08] Small update only today, a few more quests. Version 5.5 [27/8/08] Starting to lose motivation to finish this guide. Well, small update today with some more quests in. Version 5.6 [28/8/08] 8 Weeks of updates, insanity at its best. More missions added. Version 5.7 [29/8/08] More Items, MORE I SAY! There are only the accessories that are left to be finished before items are complete. Version 5.8 [30/8/08] All items are finished, Scions and Luck Sticks finished as well. Version 5.9 [31/8/08] 2 more guide started, 1 ready to go. That brings the total to 4 incomplete guides, 1 more when Spore comes out, so pretty much 5. I really want to finish this or Advance Wars off quickly to free up some more time. Version 6.0 [1/9/08] A new season is upon us. Some more missions added. Version 6.1 [2/9/08] Small update, don't feel in the mood for FFTA2. Cause I have spore... Version 6.2 [7/10/08] Small update on a mission. More to be done on this guide soon. Version 6.3 [16/10/08] Update, completing most of the primer, more on Heritor, more missions added. Version 6.4 [20/10/08] Its nearly been 4 months. More quests added, more on Heritor. Version 6.5 [23/10/08] More missions completed. version 6.6 [24/10/08] I'm aiming to complete another guide before the end of the month. That would seriously take a load off me to be quite honest. I have 4 guides incomplete, waiting to start one more. So a total of 4 incomplete next month, and after some considerable work, I should finish all guides by Christmas. Version 6.7 [28/10/08] Advance Wars is complete, so there are two guides left for me. At this point in time anyway. Version 6.8 [29/10/08] Pushing up that mission counter, more and more are done. Only about 25 to go, Brightmoon Tor, and that wraps up the guide. Version 6.9 [1/2/09] With Mass Effect out of the way, I've nearly cleared the 2008 backlog. This is the last one to be completed for 2008 to be complete. Storyline Complete at least. Version 7.0 [2/2/09] Completed more missions, there are only 16 more to go and this guide is finished. I am scrapping plans for Brightmoon Tor, there is already a guide there on GameFAQs for that, so I'm not going to do that. Sorry, but I've lost nearly all motivation fo the game, so I am going to finish this guide quickly before the game gets shelved again, permanently probably. Version 7.1 [3/2/09] Guide complete. Thanks for reading everyone! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [1.03] Important Information What is the Difference between Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and this game? Well, first of all, the law system has been changed. It is predetermined per battle, it will not change like it used to. Therefore, any guide with the laws written down will contain the law for the battle, and that won't change at all. Also, the way the law works in the game has been changed. If you break the law in the game, you lose your clan privilege, the ability to revive your fallen members, and you lose a law bonus, a bonus that you get at the end for following the law. Also, it is harder in the beginning than before, the enemy has some decent abilities, and you need to get some decent weapons to fight back. On that note, there is a Bazaar system. You need to get loot, items dropped by the enemy when they are killed and are missions rewards as well, and send it to the Bazaar, where certain recipes will create some nice weapons for you to play around with. All weapons are obtained this way. There is also a hard mode as well. That makes the enemy 50% smarter, stronger and quicker. This forces you to challenge the game aggressively from the start. The turn structure is also changed. It will focus on the speed of the user, the faster, the quicker they get their turn. It is sort of like whoever that the fastest unit, they move first. It is no longer, my turn, their turn. ALL UNITS START WITH 0MP ALWAYS. That makes the mages a bit harder to use, but they have a regen rate of 10MP per turn. There are ways to get around this though. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [2.01] Missions Missions are basically the crux of the game, you need to go on some missions to ensure that you make money and all. There are 400 missions in the game and they are seperated into three parts, Story, Mission and Dispatch. However, only 300 missions will be actually recorded in your Primer, the other 100 are random encounters with other clans and such, and as such, aren't listed. Story missions are going to be necessary to advance in the game, Missions are going to be missions that you need to go on, but not necessary to advance in the game. Dispatch missions is sending members of your clan to to their job, whilst continuing in their absence. You'll learn this in the game. On your Clan Info Screen, there is a section of Quest Report. This section is going to contain all the information on the missions you have seen and done, as well as quest info. Now, all this is explained in game as well as in the rumours section, so lets move on. The Quest Report will divide all the missions into blocks of 16 in a 5 by 5 Square. It is going to look like this. --------------------- | | a | b | c | d | e | |-+-------------------| |1|\/ | | | | | | |/\ | | | | | |-+---+---+---+---+---| |2| | | | | | | | | | | | | |-+---+---+---+---+---| |3| | | | | | | | | | | | | |-+---+---+---+---+---| |4| | | | | | | | | | | | | |-+---+---+---+---+---| |5| | | | | | | | | | | | | --------------------- In each block of 16, it is going to look something like this --------- | | a | | |-------| | | | | | | | |-+-+-+-| | | | | | | |1|-+-+-+-| | | |X| | | | |-+-+-+-| | | | | | | --------- Now, the way I am going to number the missions is going to first involve the first diagram. Imagine the mission is going to be where the X is. That means the section will be A1. The block to the right is going to be B1, while the block below will be A2. The next part is the numbering. Since there are 16 missions per block, the missions will be numbered by this. ----------- |01|02|03|04| |--+--+--+--| |05|06|07|08| |--+--+--+--| |09|10|11|12| |--+--+--+--| |13|14|15|16| ----------- So the mission where the X is on the example diagram will be number 10. So the full mission number for it will be A1 - 10. All missions will be numbered, but if you look at the Quest Report, the storyline missions is going to be linked together with a line. My Mission Layout is going to be like this. -------------------------------------------------------------------- | Name of Mission | Rank : X | Fee : Pub Fee | Days : -- | |-----------------------------+--------------------------------------| | Items (Required) : | Quest Type : | | (What you need to bring) | Reward : | | -- | (Reward for completion of mission) | | | -- | | Dispatch/Recommended : | -- | | (What you should send) | | | -- | Dispatch Mission ? = | | | | | Talents (Required) : | Can/not be canceled once accepted | | Negotiation : | | | Aptitude : | Destination : (Where Mission Is) | | Teamwork : | Members : (People Required) | | Adaptability : | | | (Clan Talents required) | | -------------------------------------------------------------------- It is mostly self explanatory, what I do not explain is in game anyway. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [2.02] Story Missions ~~--==The Start==--~~ Well, you start the game watch a short, and might I add, somewhat boring mission. I really wanted a snowfight. First of all, you start off needing a name for the character you are in control of. The default name is Luso, but you can change this. For the obvious reasons that I do not know everyone's character name, he will be called Luso for the game. Now, you have the homework screen. This is the part where you get to choose the clan privileges, but more on that later. You get a set of three questions that will determine what you get. Those three questions are: 1) This Summer, I'm going to ... a) Hang out with my friends! b) Play video games non-stop! c) Study for the next year! 2) As a personal goal, I want to ... a) Be able to swim half a mile! b) Get my warrior to level 75! c) Learn a foreign language! 3) Next year I promise not to... a) Misbehave in class b) Oversleep in the morning c) Let my dog eat my homework There are a fair amount of choices there. I'll post these here, if anyone has anymore, send them in. A, A, C = Luck 2 B, A, A = Evade Up 2 B, A, B = Luck 2 B, A, C = Bonus Gil 1 B, B, A = Smash Up 1 B, B, B = Power Up 2 B, C, C = Bonus CP 1 B, C, A = Speed Up 2 B, C, B = Bonus EXP 1 B, C, C = Bonus AP 1 With that done, you will move through the cutscene and disappear into the world of Ivalice. --==Mission A1-01 ~ Stranger in the Woods==-- "Monster in Targ Wood! We Hunters of the village tried to stop 'im, to no avail. Someobdy do somethin', please! You don't need to kill 'im, just drivin' 'im off will do. Heriward, Wood Village Hunter" -------------------------------------------------------------------- | Stranger in the Woods | Rank : 1 | Fee : 100 Gil | Days : -- | |-----------------------------+--------------------------------------| | Items (Required) : | Quest Type : Defeat Mark | | -- | Reward : | | -- | 250 Gil | | | Gilhet Lead X 2 | | Dispatch/Recommended : | Faren Pollen X 2 | | -- | -- | | -- | | | | Dispatch Mission ? = | | Talents (Required) : | Cannot be canceled once accepted | | Negotiation : 0 | | | Aptitude : 0 | Destination : Targ Wood | | Teamwork : 0 | Members : 1 | | Adaptability : 0 | Gain 2 Clan Points | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------- Your Mission Objective : Defeat Klesta! Law Forbidden : Ranged Weapons Attacks with bows, greatbows, guns, hand-cannons, and cards are forbidden. This is your first mission, and this is a lot different than what FF Tactics Advance was. First of all, the judge. They no longer appear on the battlefield like they used to. They don't ride a Chocobo and hop around the map. There is also no prison. You might think, GREAT! I can break the law. No. The Judge will punish you for breaking the law by removing himself or herself from battle, therefore, fallen members cannot be brought back alive with Revive or Phoenix Down and such. Your Clan Privilege is also nullified. And the reward for the battle which the judge gives will be removed. You see, Clan Privilege is basically a small boost that you have during the battle for the entire clan, such as a power boost or a speed boost, etc, and if you break the law, you lose it. Also, at the end of the battle, the judge will give rewards, and if you break the law, you lose that reward, which consists of items that you can sell for loot. Also, when you battle, once you defeat an enemy, you will normally gain a nice item from them. This is loot, and is explain by the shopkeeper after the battle. Anyway, we need to start. Well, you will see your Clan fight some big bird and you will suddenly appear from out of no where. You take an oath with the judge and join the battle as a Soldier. Now, you need to take down the big bird, which is the main aim, or take the small critters first. I suggest that you use Luso and Cid (who is AI controlled), to take down the big bird, using the White Mage to heal them when that big Klesta will attack them. The Territorial Marking is a seriously damaging attack that has a long range to boot. The Peck Attack, while it isn't all that long range, is very strong and knock down your melee fighters. Your Black Mage should be used to dish out the damage to the Cockatrice that are with the Klesta. They will drop items when they go poof. Now, attack that big bird. This can be hard on Hard Mode because Cid might be dead by now. Your White Mage needs to heal, and let your soldiers do the fighting. Heal, attack with range, heal those wounds, repeat. Don't forget that Luso has potions to toss around, and unlike the first Tactics Advance, this time you are allowed items. --==After the Battle==-- You should save your game here, unless you want to start all over again. Tap the Main Menu button, System and then Save. You need to move to the town of Wood Village. Unlike the previous game, you don't get to place new towns and places, so boo hoo, no more treasure hunt. Head into the pub and follow all the instructions, and take the next story mission that you have to take, since it is the only one there. After that little talk, head to the shop for another tutorial, and more importantly, the bazaar system and selling loot. There isn't all that much to choose from at the store, so buy another Sword for Luso so he can gain some skills, and if you have taken the mission, head to Targ Wood, if you haven't taken the mission, take it. --==Mission A1-06 ~ A Paw Full of Feather ==-- "What's in the woods? Wolves, that's what! Any my chocobos are so put out, they're molting early. Somebody, rid us of these horrible howlers! Chocobo Corral "Sasasha" -------------------------------------------------------------------- | A Paw Full Of Feathers | Rank : 2 | Fee : 100 Gil | Days : -- | |-----------------------------+--------------------------------------| | Items (Required) : | Quest Type : Battle | | -- | Reward : | | -- | 1050 Gil | | | Snake Skin X 2 | | Dispatch/Recommended : | Tiny Mushrooms X 4 | | -- | Fresh Water X 4 | | -- | | | | Dispatch Mission ? = No | | Talents (Required) : | Cannot be canceled once accepted | | Negotiation : 0 | | | Aptitude : 0 | Destination : Targ Wood | | Teamwork : 0 | Members : 5 | | Adaptability : 0 | Gain 4 Clan Points | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------- Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Fire Weapons and abilities that use fire are forbidden. This mission is relatively easy, three beasts against 5 of your team. I suggest that you leave your Thief out for this mission, they are quick, but there isn't anything to steal as well as the map is rather small, and strength is going to be valued over speed. Your White Mage is going to be need since you are going to be taking some damage, a Black Mage is relatively useful as well. Your Warrior is going to dish out some damage as well as Luso, and the Archer is good for support. If you want to keep the thief, take out the archer. Now, you get the Clan Privileges now. I've already explained it, so read the tutorial and figure it out yourself, I'm not going to repeat myself for your 5 second benefit. Anyway, you need to take down the Wolves first. They are more dangerous since they dish out more damage and are faster, so take them out, then that lone Goblin. Make sure your indirect units, your Mages and Archers are in the rear, while your warriers and soldiers take the front line. --==After the Battle==-- Now, head to the pub, down 4 drinks to binge drink, according to Australian laws, and do some quests. Take the next mission quest, the only quest with -- as days, and that is the next mission. Sidequests are going to be explained later in its own section. Head to the shop to buy some more armour if you really need to. You don't since there isn't anything new in stock, but move on. --==Mission A1-11 ~ The Yellow Wings==-- "Drive off those brigands, the Yellow Wings, before I lose what little business I got left! They've been squatting the highroad, demanding gil from all what pass by. If I can't use that highroad, I can't get to Camoa; and if I can't get to Camoa, I'm finished! Kagran, Merchant" -------------------------------------------------------------------- | The Yellow Wings | Rank : 3 | Fee : 100 Gil | Days : -- | |-----------------------------+--------------------------------------| | Items (Required) : | Quest Type : Battle | | -- | Reward : | | -- | 1750 Gil | | | Lamia Scale X 2 | | Dispatch/Recommended : | Sanative Needle X 3 | | -- | Earth Stone X 3 | | -- | | | | Dispatch Mission ? = No | | Talents (Required) : | Cannot be canceled once accepted | | Negotiation : 0 | | | Aptitude : 0 | Destination : Targ Wood | | Teamwork : 0 | Members : 5 | | Adaptability : 0 | Gain 6 Clan Points | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------- Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Ice Weapons and abilities that use ice are forbidden. Well, this reminds me of the Red Wings that tried to take over Ivalice last time. Anyway, you are going to be level disadvantaged, but we aren't going to let that dampen the mood. You need to choose your squad and place them into the battle. The first problem is the Archer. She is always going to boost and hit you for extra damage. That Animist is always going to use 100% Wool when he has the chance to. That Black Mage will force you to spread out your units and that Thief is going to steal your gil most of the time. Take down the White Monk, the dogman, first, since he is going to dish out some damage. Your second choice is the Black Mage, so you can effectively gang up on your enemies without fear of a magick attack. Next is the Archer, she is going to be a problem with her constant boost and shooting. Finally, the Thief and the Animist will remain. The choice is pretty much yours, they both deal about the same damage, but the thief first if he keeps stealing all your money from you. The Animist should be last because he is normally the weakest of the lot. --==After the Battle==-- You can now head to Camoa via the Highroad. This is another new system. There isn't a world map anymore, like the previous Tactics. This is now seperated into areas, where you need to travel from area to area. Try it, move onto the Camoa Highroad and that will take you to a new area. Head to the pub, the shop still has the same crap as the shop in Wood Village has, and find some more missions.

Law Forbidden : Lightning Weapons and abilities that use lightning are forbidden. You have a new partner to play with, you get an extra person, Adelle, a female Thief that is on your side. So basically, you have nice team of 7 compared to the enemy who has 4 Deadly Nightshades (Tomato), and that Alraune that is probably the strongest out of the enemies. Take down the three tomatoes on the right side of the map first of all, and rush the fastest moving unit that you have to take the treasure that is on the lower right hand side of the map, and you get some treasure. I got a Knot of Rust, what did you get? Anyway, take down the tomatoes and finally take down the hornhead. This is one of the easiest fights that you will face, the tomatoes are no challenge, and the alraune is one damages when it toxic attacks you, which leads to constant damage. --==After the Battle==-- Head back to the town of Camoa, you need to anyway. You will unlock the area north of Camoa, Baptiste Hill. Have fun there. --==Mission B2-01 ~ Wanted: Ughor==-- "Wanted: Ughor, a green-coloured shelling, last spotted on Baptiste Hill.

Law Forbidden : Restoring MP Actions that restore MP are forbidden. You need to deal with 2 wolves, 2 cockatrices and a giant turtle. You want to target the giant turtle, but with extra loot, you might as well target them as well. Take care of the Cockatrices first, their peck is going to cause you some pain and that isn't what you want. You want your ranged units to be picking them off, black magick works extremely well here. It is best used on the groups, but when them as a primary form of attack. Fast moving units have the advantage here, they need to attack the creatures from behind to ensure that they suffer. Make sure that any attack on the Turtle doesn't get absorb and heal him instead. The AI is stupid enough to do this, dish out more damage. Also, that turtle has a counter move as well, so ranged units are best. --==After the Battle==-- You need to head back to the city of Camoa to make the mission progress. You need to head to Graszton with the path to Binga opened now. An old "friend" will now join you on the trip, and you can't even reject her. I swear she is quick to get out of that forest. Anyway, take the path through the Bisga Highlands to Graszton, a nice port town. Well, a ninja cheats and pulls a gun on someone, leaving that person out of your party for a while. Take the mission on the notice board and move out. --==Mission B2-06 ~ Wanted: Gilmunto==-- "Wanted: Gilmunto, possibly a varient strain of nidhogg, known to lurk in the foothills of the Aldanna Range.

Law Forbidden : Fire Weapons and abilities that use fire are forbidden. Wow, a bunch of monsters that you need to fight. You have 2 Worgens, which are the same as wolves, 1 Yellow Jelly, 1 Asp and 1 Thunder Drake. The hard part of this mission is actually defeating Gilmunto, he is a hard one to take down since he has massive defense and the Dragon Force ability. The Flan is another problem. It is going to cast thunder to heal all the other units it can, while hurting you. There is a chest containing an item here, so make sure you grab it if you can, but don't lose troops over this, that is stupid. Take down the Wogren first, then the Flan. The Drake, and finally Gilmunto the Asp. On this mission, you want to have some strength to take down the enemy, as well as some healers, because the odds are, you are going to take some damage in this mission, and making sure your party alive is important. --==After the Battle==-- At the end of a battle, someone will turn up, and you will have a nice chat with them. After the conversation on how to end up home, you need to head to Graszton to find your good friend Cid. Once at the port city, you will talk about auctions. Its really the same as controlling a region back in Tactics Advance, except now you control an area. Same thing happens, you get pub discounts and shop discounts, but it isn't happening yet, so just wait. --==Mission B2-11 ~ Now That's a Fire==-- "Zedlei Forest has been bombed!

Law Forbidden : Restoring MP Actions that restore MP are forbidden In this mission, you need to fight 3 Bombs, 2 Red Jelly and some Floating Eyes and with the total of 7, it is an even fight, except for level. Now, you need to take down some units before others. The first is going to be that ugly Marshmallow Flan before it can dish out fire damage all over the place. Then, you might want to take down the Floating Eyes because of their annoying poison and death dive powers, and finally, the Bombs. For those who haven't played the game before, Bombs will self destruct when they are close to death, so either kill them before they get their turn while they are on HP critical. The floating eyes will do the same thing with their death dive. Your best weapon are your Black Mages with their Ice spells. Blizzard is going to cause MASSIVE amounts of damage to their fiery counterparts, and that will make your mission that much easier. --==After the Battle==-- You need to now go to Camoa or Graszton to get to the Auction House. You will be able to enter the auction house now. You will enter the house and get a list of the rules. Make sure you read them, it is important that you do. It will cost you 20 Clan Points to enter, and because that last mission just provided a nice 28 points, you have it relatively easy. But guess what! Its your first time, so entry fee is waved. And I went to Grazston just so you know. Make sure that you use the bonuses at the bottom. When it says Bonus, and a position number, try to be that positon. So if you get a bonus for 3rd, try to be third at that point. This allows you to have the 5 Token chip, and that certainly gives you an advantage. I'll have a section up for this later on. --==Mission B2-16 ~ Pearls in the Deep==-- "Tis the season: zingu pearl season in the Galerria Deep!

Law Forbidden : Actions by Nu Mous Nu Mou may only move and perform basic attacks There goes my most powerful mage right there. Well, the good news is that you have the high ground. And the bad news, well, the Mark is going to be VERY HARD TO KILL. His attacks will suck you closer to where he is, and that isn't a good thing at all. Since your don't have Nu Mous, you are going to need some healers. Bring in a Bishop with Aero to make some gain here, other than that, its going to be an old fashioned beatdown. The Antlions need to be taken out first. They will just keep coming at you, so just take them down as they advance to you, and take any chance you have against the big guy, the Mark. Use a Tinker with Haste for you if you can, because it will really help if you get the Haste boost. The Gravity Flux move is the damage all move for the monster, while the Draw In is the move in and leech move. Haste seriously helps here, you can easily get your units to continiously attack the beast. What I did was to get archers and melee units. Haste with the Tinker, shoot arrows, melee attacks with the Air Render. Don't bother with the little Antlions, they will be replaced with another Antlion, behind where you start, when you kill one. Aim for the mark and kill it. Finish this quest to realise that Lupo is an idiot. --==After the Battle==-- Head to Graszton after the battle, as you do. Well, Lupo has really nothing else to do, no plans to rush home, and well, we just get new missions to play with. Take the next mission when you're ready. --==Mission C3-01 ~ Mountain Watch==-- "Kuknir Travel is looking for guards to escort touring groups headed for the Rupie Mountains.

Law Forbidden: Ice Weapons and Abilities that use ice are forbidden. Wow, there is a price for judges now? Holy Crap! Anyway, Ewen has an unobtainable class, Nightfall, the advanced fall of the Ninja. Not nice. He also has a few friends in a Ninja, an Assassin, a Sniper and a Time Mage. This son of a turd has also removed the judge from the battle, so you don't get to use your clan privilege nor do you get to revive your fallen members. That is a problem for you. You need to take down either Ewen or all his team members first. Unless you can take down a pretty advanced team, I suggest that you concentrate all your firepower against Ewen since they are quite strong. Or you can kill them all for the loot and the EXP, but you need to take down Ewen. He can critical for up to 200+, against a highly leveled Seeq. Not bad. It is exceptionally fun to have your Sniper get an Opportunity turn, then shoot Ewen twice in the back after he criticals one of your teammates out of the battle. And that little bastard runs like a little girl. Stupid ninjas. No law bonus, I'll teach you Ewen. You can bet that isn't the last time you will see him. I hope the Judge is okay. --==After the Battle==-- Again, head to Graszton and talk to Cid. Oh, Cid, forgot about him. Say, don't that Ewen look familar? Anyway, head to Moorabella since that is where Cid wants you to go to. You get news that the Blimp is grounded, which leads to the next mission. --==Mission C3-06 ~ Grounded!==-- "Airship malfunction due to mechanical sabotage and inspections resulting from same have grounded our regular flight to Flourgis.

Law Forbidden : Harming the Weak Actions that harm a lower level unit are forbidden. Great, Luso and Vaan are already butting heads saying who is more bad and who is going to do what in this battle. Well, at least you have your judge back in this battle, which means you can easily go and get your privilege and the law bonus at the end of the battle. You are going to face Ed, the Sage, a Time Mage, a Berserker, a Fusilier and a White Mage. You seriously want to take down the mage first because you don't want your troops being slowed down in comparsion and the white mage variety because they are the healers. The Fusilier can deal some damage so you need to get him taken out when you are in range. The Berserker is easily countered when he moves close to your own units. And finally, the Sage is rather easy to kill because he has pretty low resistance. Use pay attention to the law. It doesn't mean you cannot kill if they are on equal level. Ed is going to be on Lvl 25, while there is going to be a Level 24, 23, 22 and 21. That is pretty much set in stone so unless you have seriously overleveled characters, it doesn't matter. Anyway, its nice having a Level 99 White Mage watching over your troops anyway. Remember, the mission means that you need to take down Ed, and no one else, so you want to take him out first if you want to finish this mission faster than a defeat all foes variety mission. Technically, Vaan is on your side, do keep him alive, for now anyway. Funny, Vaan was silenced and he can still talk. --==After the Battle==-- Vaan is joined by another character, Penelo, who both will join your clan, but not just yet, you still have a while to go. It will cost you 300 Gil to head to Fluorgis, and that's just single. I wonder if I can get a discount if I buy a return ticket? At the end of your trip, Cid will join your clan. Technically, it was his clan to start off with, and like Adelle, you cannot refuse him entry. Anyway, welcome to the new continent, and guess what, there are many new jobs that you can take here. And also, you can recruit Grias into your clan now. --==Mission C3-11 ~ Rumours Ahead==-- "Rumours whisper of an unimaginable treasure sleeping deep within Tramdine Fens.

Law Forbidden : Copycat Using the same action as the preceding unit is forbidden. Aha, Luso is afraid of Ghosts, and here they come. Anyway, you dead with 1 Wraith, 2 Ghosts, 2 Floating Eyes and a Zombie. Okay, the first thing you want is to take down the Wraith. First of all, it has Critical: Vanish, so you want to deal a lot of damage to remove it without going to HP Critical, and the power to summon more undead units to the battlefield, which you certainly do not want. The other 2 ghosts have Sleep Touch and Silence Touch, that will either blind or silence the target while dealing dark damage. The Zombie has the usual skill set, drain touch and all. The Floating Eyes also have their usual skill set of poison and kamakazi. The problem is that you will have your undead in tombstones when you kill them. Wraiths, Ghosts and Zombies will all lead to tombstones since they are undead units. Use Exorcise to make sure they stay away, or use Burial to ensure that they don't return. Take down the enemy units as you can. Take down the Wraith first, and bury or phoenix down the sucker to ensure they he doesn't get back up. Do not forget that your undead friends are also weak to white mage powers such as cure, restore and cura so bring one along. Archer or White Monk with exorcise and burial are also useful. --==After the Battle==-- Learn more about Luso's and his boring life story. Head to Fluorgis for the nearest town to you, but any town will do. Flashback time to where we all started and what you have done since then. Great memories. Anyway, take the next mission to carry on with the storyline. --==Mission C3-16 ~ Sleepless Nights==-- "My dreams have been troubled of late. It started the night after my visit to Nazan Mines.

Law Forbidden : Debuffs Debuffs are forbidden. This is like a Wanted mission, you need to take down a single unit, the Oversoul. Besides that unit, you face 2 Wraiths, a Bloody Orb and a Zombie. Remember, this mission is all about the Oversoul. All the units, except for the Bloody Orb are undead units, so you can use Cure on them to cause some damage, and you need to Exorcise or Phoenix Down them to make sure that they stay dead. If you want to take all of them down, that means leaving the Oversoul last. That is, you have 2 Wraiths, a Zombie and a Bloody Orb to face. Take down the Bloody Orb first, because that is the easiest to take down, and then the other undead. Make sure you exorcise them to ensure that they stay down. The most important thing is that although you cannot use debuffs, you cannot use them to win this battle. One key unit is the White Mage, not only do they do damage to the undead, but they are there to heal your troops, as you would expect. The next essential unit is a unit that uses Burial or Exorcise. That is quite important to this mission, if you aren't here to take down the Oversoul. Note that if you complete this on Level 24, you are going to face a hard fight, it is best to overlevel this mission to about 27, so you stand more of a chance against the enemy. If you want a very easy way to finish this mission, stock up on X potions and this will allow you to do 200 damage without question. Those with Item Lore will do 400 damage with an X potion. Thats the cheats way of doing things. --==After the Battle==-- We get a nice cutscene involving Adelle, of all people. Then, we get one about Cid. Then, we get one involving Lezaford. Then we move into Luso's first battle with Klesta. First meeting with Adelle. Then, we end up in a weird misty place. And thats the memory. Head into any town, probably Fluorgis given the location. Well, you will see a bard, and that would be someone you will see soon enough. Theres a new bill for that little bard, so you might as well as take it. --==Mission D4-01 ~ Making Music==-- "The timber of the strawood trees growing near Fluorgis makes the best instruments, kupo!

Law Forbidden : Harming Females Actions that harm viera and gria are forbidden. Wow, my Ranger I was fighting was called Becks. Anyway, you are meant to target the Alchemist here, so you might want to target him if you are a little underleveled. Your Alchemist friend here has Astra and Rasp, and as you saw from the introduction, has the Beastmaster ability to control Headless. The Raptor, the only female is armed with all three Crushes, Power, Mind and Speed. The Ranger has some traps up his sleeve, with Sten Needle and Leech which eats at your HP and MP respectively. He also has Mirror Items, which might be a problem. Now, the Golems. They have Bone Shatter and Brute Strength, so they are going to be the melee units for the enemy. They are going to be the first units that you are going to face, so being in some wind users or some Hunters to eliminate them. The Ranger is going to be a pain, so you might as well as to take him out. You will need to kill the Gria via reaction abilities such as Counter if you want to get rid of her and follow the law, and finally, the Alchemist. Once his troops are down, he is quite easy and he doesn't have much to do. --==After the Battle==-- Head to the nearest city, which is Fluorgis to meet Hurdy. He gives you a piece of Spiral Vine, and you need to head to a shop to make a nice little instrument. You get 2500 Gil to purchase it as well. Make the instrument and then purchase it. You will get a cutscene when you leave the store. However, do not make the item just yet. Instead, head to Sant D'alsa Bluff where you can do a mission to make an even better item. This is in the battle that will be listed under Other Missions. Search for **Making Music**. However, by making the Shining Lute, you will have a problem. The Shining Lute can be gotten via another means, but there seems to be no other means of obtaining the Brilliant Theorbo, the instrument that you need to make originally. So I suggest that you make the Theorbo instead of the Lute, because the Theorbo is rarer since you cannot get another one. Funny, Cid says that you're not in a clan that turns people away. Tell that to all those people I rejected to joining my clan. Ah, the irony, its delicious. Man, Hurdy is far to optimistic for his own good, like Luso. And you cannot turn Hurdy away from your clan. Head to Moorabella now. Which means, head to the Aerodrome at Fluorgis, take the Airship, and head into Moorabella City. --==Mission D4-06 ~ Seeking the Stone==-- "I search for a piece of magicite the colour of silver.

Law Forbidden : Targeting all Units Actions targeting all units at once are forbidden. Why doesn't these plot twists surprise me. I am seriously doubting Luso's ability to think. Anyway, we need to deal with a nice assortment of enemies here while we are in the middle. Narph, the leader, is a Scholar indeed, armed with Earth, Rime and Thunder Tomes for his pleasure. The Paladin has Cover, which he will use quite a fair bit. Dragoon has Jump, Lancet and Thunder Breath. Ranger has Sten Needle, Love Potion and Silence Gas. The Hume Hunter has Sonic Boom and Rend MP, the Gria has Vitals Shot. I hate that Gria, managed to make my unit on 1 HP with a lucky Vitals Shot. You might want to take down the Ranger first, since he is going to be using those traps and laying them all over the damn place. Next one is going to be the Gria or Hume Hunter, they can deal a fair amount of damage while keeping a distance. The Dragoon needs to be taken out when he decides to get a bit too close for comfort, he is quite powerful. The Paladin and Scholar should remain, take down the Scholar first because by this stage, he has quite a fair amount of MP to use those spells. The Paladin last because he is quite weak. Funny, he decided to Cover a Stopshot and it Stopped. --==After the Battle==-- We learn some more about the attack on Cid, and a bit more on the people we are actually fighting. Head to the nearest town, which would be Graszton and we head into the Pub automatically, and we learn even more about the people we are fighting and what is going on in the land. Now we need to help some old "friends". --==Mission D4-11 ~ Wanted: Sky Pirate Vaan==-- "Apprehend the sky pirates Vann and Penelo!

Law Forbidden : Not Moving 1 Tile Each unit must move exactly 1 tile before ending its turn. Yup, the lovable characters from Reverent Wings are back. Anyway, I advise you to break the law, because that Gladiator behind Penalo is certainly going to attack, and hit for about 200+ damage. Not nice at all. Anyway, you need to make sure those 2 don't get killed. The Lanista is armed with Souleater and Charge!, the Berserker is using Hone Senses, Furore and Smite of Rage. The Ranger is Mirror Items !!! as well as Sten Needle and Leech. The Gladiator, the threat, is using Rush and Thunder Assault. The Bishop knows Cure, Water and Dispel. This is going to be a hard fight, so you need to move real fast if you want to save those two. I really hate that Gladiator, so make sure you take him down FAST! Your first objective really is to form a circle around Vaan and Penalo, making sure they are healed as well as making sure that the enemy cannot get through your ranks. Long ranged units, Fusiliers with Stopshot, are important here since they can make the enemy retreat and stop them dead in their tracks. Flintlocks and Cannoners with Cure Shells can really help here. There is no order in which to take down the enemy, the order is to take them out as you rush to protect the two units that you need to make sure cannot die. Make sure your units don't die either, because the odds are, you aren't going to be following the law, and that means no revive. --==After the Battle==-- More on what actually happened with the Baron, and it does sound a bit convincing. We play follow the leader, so we need to follow Cid all the way to Graszton. Its insult time, lets throw insults all around. And them some talking behind one's back. Great friends. --==Mission D4-16 ~ A Request==-- "For Clan Gully, a request. I must speak with you. I await in the Ruins of Delgantua. P.S.

Law Forbidden : Being Robbed Having Gil or Items stolen is forbidden. Oh, boy, this isn't a very fair fight. They have two nice characters that you cannot obtain via class, Ewen and Illua. Illua is particularly nasty so you really want to end this quick and kill her very quick. Also, might I add, there is another battle after this. Don't worry about the law, no one here can steal. Oh, don't bother bring in units to raise your troops or use a clan privilege, Illua gets rid of your judge, which isn't all that nice. Ewen is using the Ninja set, with Throw and Unspell, but most interesting is the ability to Dual Wield. That isn't nice. The Elementalist packs Fire Whip, Boulder Crush and Sliprain. The Viera Spellblade uses Poison, Sleep and Doom Blades. The Seer packs Fira, Blizzara and Thundara as well as Esuna. Pierce with him isn't all that nice for Reflect users. The Illusionist packs Prominence, Tempest and Freezeblink. And Illua, the best for last. She is the Nightshade Class. Saber raises her Attack and Accuracy, which makes her even more nasty. Time Blade slows your team and damages them, and finally, the most powerful, Dimensional Rift. It is like a Summoner's Summon, large area, good range, powerful attack. And she is immune to debuffs. This is the best time to use Stopshot. Making sure the enemy can't attack you is really nice. This is the best time to bring out long range units, and disable debuffs since you really don't want the enemy to be casting their spells. Take out the Elementalist first, she is the trouble maker. Next, the Illusionist since you don't want all your units dead. Take down the Seer and the Spellblade next, they are pretty much in the way. Finally, you should have Ewen and Illua next. Take down Ewen, then Illua, and finish this. Or alternatively, you can easily just take down Illua. Camouflage and Mirror Items is a great combination. Also, Ewen is a bit suicidal. Keep that in mind. At the end of this mission, wow, what a great scene. Such power, to be totally owned by a Journal. And we get teleported, to a place we don't want to be. Wow, this is a party, Lezaford joins the fray. And that hand, that isn't ... natural. The Rift Your Mission Objective : Defeat the Neukhia! Law Forbidden : Opportunity Commands Opportunity Commands is forbidden. There are two Plagues to start us off, they both have Binding Circle and Dread so be careful and don't look into their eyes, for obvious reasons. Don't kill them however, Behemoths and Sprites will come and replace them and then you have even more do deal with. Disable them, Stop them, that should work. Neukhia, however, is a whole new pain in the ass. Apocalypse is the confuse in small area attack. Consumption deals damage to units in a large area. White Hole does damage to all units in a straight line ahead. Spyhonja kills off all MP in a large area. And finally, Catastrophe lowers Defence and Resistance. To win this battle, you need to play with the switches on the side, that will activate the Holy Cannon to deal damage to this sucker. Flick all the purple switches, or examine them, and that will activate a nice cannon that will deal a good bit of damage to the sucker. You really don't need to do this, but it does a fair amount of damage. Also, after you use the cannon, the switches go off and randomise again, so have units here and there. The cannon will hit all enemies, so do bear that in mind. This might be useful if you are planning to kill all units, but remember, you want to take down this hand, demon, rock thing, whatever it is. Use physical attacks, he actually has relatively weak defence rating, so physical attack to death. You get your judge back, so bring a white mage, you'd need one for this sort of battle. Raise is important, and make your clan privilege count this time. You want to keep your white mage at the back of the field, where it can't be hit, to set up a sort of recovery centre. When your units fall, revive, and go against. --==After the Battle==-- Well, that is interesting after the defeat of that rock hand. We get the orders to move east, and look where we end up, in Zellea, the Forbidden Land. Not so forbidden now that we're here. Anyway, head to the ! and lets move into .... Lezaford's Basement? We get some into, that we we're actually in Jagd Zellea, and unlike the last game, Jagd has a different meaning. And we also know why this game is called Grimoire of the Rift. Wow. After Luso continues to act like an idiot, we need to head into the nearest town, take Camoa. Now we get our orders to move to Goug. Note that when you go to the pub, Adelle no longer stands next to Luso, its Hurdy. --==Mission E5-01 ~ The Dig==-- "It's the 410th Goug Mines Salvage Run!

I laugh at the moogles and their fear of the Mooglebane, some nice bluffy bunnies. I also laugh that once Luso decides to open his mouth, things start going wrong. We are facing 4 Mooglebane and two Chocobos, a Red and a Black One. Seeing that you cannot use any form of elemental magick of Fire, Ice and Lightning, you need to bring in some Hunters and that will do the job, because what you really are facing here is just a bunch of monsters, and thats about it. The Mooglebane really have two real dangers, and no, they damage all races equally, not just victimising Moogles. They have very high attack, well for their stature, and low everything else. Also, they have the Illude skill, which is pretty much Charming your units. Other than that, 3 will have Magick Counter, 1 with MP Shield, and all will have Charged Attacks. There are two Chocobos, a common Black one and a somewhat rarer Red Chocobo. The Black Chocobo has two skills, Choco Flame and Choco Beak, with Critical: Haste and Defence Up. The Red Chocobo, which I recommend that you catch if you want one, because they are rare, will have Choco Cure, Choco Barrier and Choco Meteor, as well as Critical: Quicken and Death Strike. If you have someone that can use Water Magick, since that is not counted as Ice damage, you can bring in that user to take down the Chocobos, since they are all weak to water. The Mooglebane are going to be a problem. Illude is a problem since you need to whack your own troops to make sure they don't turn to the dark side. This is where hunters with Sidewinder on the back will do some good damage for your team. Watch out for back attacks, they will do about 150 HP damage to your troops from the back, due to the fact that it is from the back, they have high attack, and have Charged Attacks. Other than that, this is an easy battle. --==After the Battle==-- Well, you get a nice little bonus after the battle, because Hurdy has found a new instrument and that will be aptly named after him somewhat. And this is a mission where YOU WANT TO HURRY TO COMPELTE THE NEXT STORYLINE MISSION. Because, once you head to the nearest town, enter the pub, so take Fluorgis or Goug, don't go back to the Loar side, someone will leave your team. *SPOILERS* Adelle will leave your clan, taking some money off Cid's savings at the same time. But she will have the decency of giving all your weapons back to your item inventory, so don't worry about losing some valuable items. But you have to love the music to the flashback scene. Soft melody, soothing, calm. *END SPOILERS* --==Mission E5-06 ~ Through Another's Eyes==-- "Monsters have settled in to the area around the ancient stone heads of Kthili Sands.

This is also a nice mission name, because if you haven't thought about it already, this is talking about seeing the world through the eyes of Adelle. Your Mission Objective : Bring Adelle Back to her Sense! Law Forbidden : Ranged Weapons Attacks with bows, greatbows, guns, hand-cannons, and cards are forbidden. You are going to face a very pumped up Adelle, with a brand spanking new class, the Heritor, only available to her, but unfortunately, not available to you until much later. Well, you won't get it after the battle. You are going to be surrounded by monsters as well as Adelle, and that isn't going to be fun. You face 2 Zaghnals, a Thunder Drake and 2 Pit Beasts. This is a dual battle, you need to pick 5 units to fight with, and make sure that Luso doesn't count. The aim here is to actually follow what Cid said, you need to talk to Adelle several times to make sure that she comes back to her senses. You need to do it once, then twice, and finally, thrice, to complete the mission. However, this is a two pronged battle since the only person who can talk to her is Luso, and you need to ward off those monsters. Bring some magick users, or Melee fighters with Trapping as their Secondary ability, with Sidewinder of course. A White Mage is probably going to be needed to save your troops, because even though Luso is talking to her, she will not be afraid to use Lennart against your troops, which will damage 4 units in a line in front of her. You want to take down the Thunder Drake first, because elemental attacks with Geomancy hurt a lot more than otherwise. Then, take down the Zaghnals and the Pit Beasts, but the odds are, they aren't going to get that close. Make sure that Adelle moves to your units first, and before Luso can move, so you can quickly get your three turns out of the way. Make sure that you don't kill Adelle, what will kill her, and we really want to avoid unnecessary killings that might just make your game over and restart the mission. 3 Talks and that is enough, make sure you have a good distraction party to make sure she doesn't kill Luso. Because just as much as your need to talk to Adelle to win the mission, Luso dead and no means to revive him pretty much means your chances of winning the mission go to zero. --==After the Battle==-- Well, Adelle is back to normal, which is a nice change, but you need to re-equip her with her previous weapons because she has lost hers. Funny, the items that Adelle was using WAS EXACTLY THE SAME as the ones Illua was using when you first faced her. Head to the nearest pub, and you near some news of everyone's favourite pirate, Vaan and Penalo. Looks like you have a new mission, and this time, its with Adelle. And no, you don't need to hurry for this one. --==Mission E5-11 ~ Pirate Problems==-- ""Lord Eden, was it? Heard yo're in possession of that rarest of treasures, the "Black Cat," and we're coming to Camoa for it! See you soon!

Law Forbidden : Harming Bangaa Actions that harm bangaa are forbidden. Well, they aren't Vaan and Penelo, they look far too ugly, and they, well, speak like utter fools. Whoever told them about Vaan and Penelo obviously didn't tell them that they don't speak like the British and they don't wear crappy makeup, etc, etc. Anyway, your mark here is Van, so this is quite easy. There are some traps around, which makes this mission a bit harder than it really should be, but that isn't the problem. The problem is the Cannoneer and you aren't, well, stricting speaking from a law abiding point of view, allowed to kill him. So, we kill everyone else. You are going to need to kill that Fighter right near your starting position in order to make sure you aren't attacked on the flank, and that Ravager while your at it. Next on the killing list is that really annoying Sniper. With the ability to break your weapon, it is a unit you really don't want. After that, you have Vaan and Penalo left, but they are relatively easy to take down. You need to take out Vaan after that, but you can alternatively take out Vaan from the beginning and concentrate on him only instead of any other unit. And again, be careful, that Cannoneer is quite annoying but if you want to follow the law, you can't touch him. --==After the Battle==-- Well, after the battle, these obvious fakers will try to escape, and in the best of timing, they are stopped by the real deal. Anyway, after some nice chitter chatter, you see those two run away, and do some really bad things that you we're meant to stop. Head to the nearest town, which is Camoa, and you get a nice conservation about Khamja with everyone. Adelle, Luso and Cid sit at a table all with some hatred, and Hurdy sit down all alone, he doesn't have any enemies. Anyway, there is a request for your clan and that is the final actual mission that you have to take, well, it really isn't a fight, its three. --==Mission E5-16 ~ The Ritual==-- "At last, the day when all my dreams shall know fruition is nigh! Just a few finishing touches remain. I trust you'll be on hand to celebrate? I'll be waiting at the ruins.

Law Forbidden : Harming Males Actions that harm males are forbidden. Well, this is the final boss battle, and you are going to need everything that you have to win. You really want to bring your, best, and only your best troops for this mission. This is where all your abilities and how you have leveled your troops will come into effect. If you want to finish this early, Mirror Items and X Potion her, and if you have Item Lore, that is 400 HP gone down the drain, making it a lot easier on you. Otherwise, you are going to have to do this the hard way, and that means punishing her with brute force. You want to move your troops to defeat her quickly, you don't want the enemy male units coming down and buffing their troops. Push along the left side, since that is the closer side, and push through, defeating the Viera that are there and attacking Illua. When you fight her, have a White Mage or Reviver at the back, ready to revive fallen units, whilst you go and phyiscally block her, making sure she cannot move and she is pinned down. Quickly move your way through the mission and defeat her, and that should finish off this mission. But you are not done, you are taken to Zellea again, and whilst you can go back to Lezaford's lets finish this mission, shall we? --==The Two Grimoires==-- This is an unlisted mission, and for good reason. This is just the second part of the previous mission. Your Mission Objective : Defeat Illua! Law Forbidden : Buffs Buffs are forbidden. Bring your best battlers into this mission, there is no point in bring in units who aren't powerful. You will need at least a healer, and some very powerful attacking units as well. This time, she is flanked by monsters, so act accordingly. A secondary ability of Hunting with Sidewinder seems to be rather useful here. Move your troopers either the short way, which requires a high jump score or you can move them all the way around. Doing it the latter will require you to have a fight with monsters along the way, so move your fastest units first, having your firepower not moved so that they can fire on the enemies as they pop out from nowhere. Now, once you actually reach Illua, you need to be able to dish out the damage with precision, that is, high accuracy and you need to do so quickly because she is far more powerful now, and she is more danagerous, dishing out more damage if you let her, so make sure your healer is away from the front lines, ready to revive the fallen unit. Mirror Items is the best to soften her up, but she is quite fast, so you need some sort of luck to make it work. Otherwise, just do it the old fashion way, beat the living crap out of her, or take health off her from a range. Once she is finished, we still aren't finished. She might be dead, but the demon that she made a deal with sure isn't. --==From the Rift==-- Your Mission Objective : Defeat the Neukhia! Law Forbidden : Reaction Abilities Reaction Abilities are forbidden. Well, we all knew that we were going to fight this guy sooner or later, so we have to fight this ... thing now. You need to take out three parts, you need to take down the Wisp, Pod and then finally, the Core. First of all, the Wisp. Everytime you attack it, it will disappear, or it will disappear on its own, so you need to spread out your fighters, keep them in pairs to fight the Wisp. You need that destroyed before you can actually do anything to the Core, which is the main target. Take out the Wisp quickly, and don't hold back. For once, Mirror Items is an extremely good ability to use here. Next, the Pod. That will stay on the defensive, but it doesn't mean it cannot do some serious damage, so make sure you take it out as soon as you can. Once the Wisp is destroyed, group your fighters back together, so they can dish out more damage as a group. Now, when you head into the core, it will decide that it doesn't like you and you need to beat the crap out of it, and that isn't hard considering it has over 1000 HP. You need to use your best attacks for this. When it decides it wants to spawn some crystals, turn all your forces to destroy them. These will cause the Core to lose health if they are destroyed quickly, because if they aren't, it will deal the damage to you, so it is entirely your choice. --==After the Battle==-- I'm not going to spoil the ending for you, so you can watch it for yourself, but all you need to know is that at the end, you can still continue, and continue you shall. There are still more things to finish off. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [2.03] Side Quests There are many side quests as well, not just the main story quests. These mission will provide a lot of money and experience that you will not get otherwise. They will be listed as missions like they were storyline, the format will be the same. Special note on the dispatch missions, all dispatch missions can either be dispatched, that means, send a clan member to deal with it, or you can head to the location specified on the quest information and do it yourself. I seriously ask you to actually do the mission, not only is the experience a helpful boost, but the loot is very helpful as well, especially in the early part of the game. ************** **SECTION A1** ************** --==Mission A1-01 ~ Stranger in the Woods==-- STORYLINE MISSION --==Mission A1-02 ~ Reagent Run==-- "The muskmallow, favoured herb for treatment of ague, is again in season.

I perfer battle for the nice loot, as well as the EXP that you need. Your Mission Objective : Collect a Sample of Muskmallow Law Forbidden : Knockback Actions that knock the target back are forbidden A crappy law, but not as bad as not missing. Well, hope you don't get a nice critical or something, that is your biggest concern. You are going to face 2 Wolves, 2 Dreamhare and 1 Baknamy in this mission, and the biggest danger is not their level, its about 7, but the traps in this area, which are going to be more dangerous. You want to examine the sparkles, where it indicates that is a possibility of your Muskmallow there, and it is completely random, so don't expect me to find it for you. Move up to it and examine it. Your goal is to find the Muskmallow, but what you want is some loot, which means more weapons and money, and that is surly a good thing, isn't it? --==Mission A1-03 ~ The First Step==-- "-Trade Requested- I will trade my Ocktor Tome of Medicine for your cactus fruit!

The Tome really is sent as a clan note for you. --==Mission A1-04 ~ The Next Step==-- "I seek someone to deliver medicine to a small village in Targ Wood.

Of course, it is better to do it yourself, since let I stress time and time again, you get loot. Your Mission Objectives : Defeat your Foes Law Forbidden : Ice Weapons and Abilities that use Ice are Forbidden. FINALLY, YES, A FIGHT IN A PUB. The first fight you get in a Pub setting, with all the hazards. You are fighting 1 Fencer, an Archer, a Warrior, a Soldier, a Thief and a White Monk. They don't use magick, so that is a big plus for you. The Fencer, Archier and Thief are the weaker links, so take them down when you can. The White Monk is dangerous with his Air Render, but you can target him first if you want. The Soldier and Warrior are more of the sit there and tank it, so take them down last. White Monk, Fencer (with Poison) should be taken down first because of their skills. Warrior and Archer next, and finally the Warrior and the Thief, because they can't do squat. These morons really don't know how to respect someone more powerful than they are, so teach these fools a lesson. Mages will do great here, since most of the enemy units are melee units and a few ranged units. Your archers will do good damage to the enemy as they advance to your position. Although you need to defeat them, they are going to come to you, so you have the defensive battle to play, the easy one. --==Mission A1-09 ~ Watch Your Step==-- "Oh, fie on him!

Law Forbidden : Not Moving 3 Tiles Each unit must move exactly 3 tiles before ending its turn. What the heck is wrong with the laws? They seriously have problems. Here, you need to move exactly 3 tiles per turn, not more, no less. Anywho, there are 5 Seeq units here that you are up against, and a fair amount of traps to destroy. The Seeq are as follows. A Berserker with Hone Senses, Smite of Rage and Furore, another with Furore, Ground Shaker and Inner Calm. Both have Counter as their reaction ability. The 2 Vikings both have the same skill set, they have Thundara and Strong-arm as the abilities and Critical: Berserk as their Reaction abilities. And finally, the Ranger, who has Sten Needle, Love Potion and Camouflage, as well as Critical: Vanish. All units have Avoid Traps of course. You should deal with the enemies first. The only slight problem is the Critical: Vanish of the Ranger, so either let him make a move, or use Awareness or have Reveal to see and target him. Target the traps last, so that way, you don't have an enemy that could take advantage of you. You might need to plan your moves in advance so you make sure that you can spring the traps on the 3rd turn. --==Mission A1-10 ~ The Trappings of Failure==-- "In response to monster attacks in the region outlying the city proper, we set a number of traps to rid ourselves of the beasts once and for all. Alas, the traps had no effect. Worse still, they now pose a danage to our citizenry. Please destroy these traps before they can do any real harm.

Your Mission Objective : Destroy the Traps! Law Forbidden : > 50 Damage Dealing > 50 Damage is forbidden. You are going to face 5 Sprites and 1 Banshee with a stupid law saying you can't overkill the enemy. What kind of judgement is that? Unless you are seriously overpowered, you shouldn't have a very big problem. They are of a low level however. Remember that there are some chests that you have, so make sure you clear them out before you knock out the traps. Kill all the enemies to take some of their loot as well, knock them out first before you set out the traps so that you don't have a enemy problem. Take them out, and there is one thing to this quest. It will allow for the formation of a stationary monster clan in that specific area, so you have some free target practice and loot. --==Mission A1-11 ~ The Yellow Wings==-- STORYLINE MISSION --==Mission A1-14 ~ A Voice from the Well==-- "Every night I hear what sounds like a woman's voice calling to me from the rear garden.

Again, do it yourself, not only is it more fun, you get some loot and exp, which is VITAL, especially early on in the game. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Ranged Weapons Attacks with bows, greatbows, guns, hand-cannons, and cards are forbidden. In this mission, it is a 6 against 4, there are 3 Lamia creatures and one Lilith, the evolved form of the Lamia, and that evolves into, wait, not Pokemon. This mission is going to be annoying, no archers or ranged units to blast the enemy, BAH. We still have mages. The Lilith is going to be a problem. Night puts everyone to sleep, not a good thing except for the Blue Mage, who can learn this skill. There are also 2 Chests here with items, just so you know. If you have a living member from the Night skill, just smack your allies, your own troops, to wake them up. Better you than them I guess. It is easy, the other 3 Lamia don't have much in the way of skills, and they are pretty spread out, making them very easy prey for your mages to gang up on them. I had 3 mages as support, so it was quite simple. --==Mission A1-15 ~ The Star Seal==-- "Have you hard of the "Stone with No Name"?

Law Forbidden : Lightning Weapons and Abilities that use Lightning are forbidden There are two little chests with items that are here, so make sure you get them. This is the simple part, as a mission can't be that easy. You need to kill the enemy Baknamy, and examine that little Stone, making sure you take the items in the chest as you go along. When done, move to the Stone and examine it, and now, challenge two. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Ice Weapons and Abilities that use Ice are forbidden You are going to face 1 Werewolf, 2 Wolves, 2 Sprites and a Baknamy in this level. First of all, take down the Sprites, since they are going to be the first to move, and you want first strike. Next, take down the Wolves, they move pretty fast, then the Baknamy, and finally, the Werewolf. Wind damage is against the werewolf, so use Air Render if you can. However, your previous stats will carry over, so you have plenty of MP and HP to win this mission. Also note that there is a chest here as well, but rather out of the way, so if you want to get it, use a weaker unit to get it. Remember that the Werewolf has En Garde, which means counters for one turn. It also doubles his defence, so be careful. --==Mission A1-16 ~ You Say Tomato==-- STORYLINE MISSION ************** **SECTION A2** ************** --==Mission A2-01 ~ Camoa Cup==-- "Clan Tourneys are Under Way!

So you want to win all the missions that you have to fight in. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes in the entry bout! Law Forbidden : Using MP Abilities that use MP are forbidden. You are fighting the Yellow Wings in the entry round. They aren't that strong, they are a few levels below your squad, HOWEVER, they are leveled in tandam with you, so you cannot really overlevel your enemies. There is a White Monk, Animist, Black Mage, Thief and Archer. You might want to take down the Black Mage first, you aren't going to use magick in this battle, so your units aren't going to have high resistance to start off with, so yeah, take down the Mage first. Then, the White Monk. Armed with Air Render, it isn't any harder to pick another unit to eliminate. The next is probably the Animist or the Archer. The animist has annoy abilities, but the Archer has Blackout. Given that the Sleep Count is more annoying, probably the Animist and then the Archer. Next, you are going to fight the Thief, who is the leader of the lot. You can't really heal here, since that uses MP, so you want to conserve your units. However, make sure that you choose your units carefully. Whatever units you use now will be sent into the next battle. Round 2 Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the Elimination bout! Law Forbidden : Using MP Abilities that use MP are forbidden. The next battle is against the Edge of Magick. Straight off the bat, you are fighting 3 Black Mages, 1 Time Mage and a Green Mage. It really isn't fair that they get to use magick, and you don't, but such is life. The real threat here is that they have Geomancy, which pretty much doubles the damage that your units will take from their magick attacks. That means, you really need to go quickly and take them out before they do too much damage because guess what, you need to fight another battle after this as well. You really want to gang up on the Hume Black Mage since it has Fira, an second class spell. The Green Mage needs to be taken out if you are really worried about debuffs. The first order of business is to take down the enemy Black Mages. They are the biggest threat that you currently face, then the Time and Green Mages because they really aren't a big threat. In the end, you want your HP to be as high as possible for the next bout of battle. Round 3 Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the Final bout! Law Forbidden : Using MP Abilities that use MP are forbidden. A fight against the Camoa Braves. This is a harder fight since they are a purely physical bunch, and they can wipe the floor with you, especially if your units are quite weak or weakened from previous battles. The Thief, Hume one that is, can be a pest if it will attack you with its precision skills. The Moogle Thief can be a pest if it uses Moogle Lance against you. The Warrior, well, the leader, isn't much of a threat, except for Body Slam and Greased Lightning. The White Monk as both Air and Earth Render, which isn't that nice. The Black Mage really isn't a threat, the guys in the last round were better. Your first target is probably going to be the White Monk. That monk is a pain with Air Render, and nothing else. The next, or first, will be the Hume Thief. Immobilise and Disable, especially disable, are the most painful debuffs that you can get in this battle, especially if your bunch need to be up close and personal. Next, Moogle Thief, with the Moogle Lance attack, that isn't going to be pretty. The next two can be up to you, the Black Mage and the Warrior aren't going to be the big hitters, the others are. Remember, a debuff here is probably more troublesome than the lose of some HP. Thankfully, this is the last round, so its pretty much all or nothing here. --==Mission A2-02 ~ The Sun Seal==-- "I begin to grasp the messag within the Stone, yet only dimly ...

Law Forbidden : Items Items are forbidden. You are going to need to get to the stone seal and examine it if you don't want to attack the enemy units. There are 5 enemy in this battle if you really want a fight. As usual, you have a Baknamy to take care of, and now, a lilith, a wraith and finally a ghost. Although this part is relatively easy, you want to bring into the battle 1 White Mage, and all the rest units that can fight with ranged abilities. This is because in the next round, you don't have that ability to fight next to other units which means law breaking. Finish this quick and try to lose as little health as possible, you'll need it later. The Lilith is going to be first, since it is right there. The Baknamy will walk down and try to attack you, so fight back. The undead are easy to mop up, exorcise them if you can. Examine the Sun Seal and that will push us next to the next battle. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Targeting Adjacent Units Actions targeting adjacent tiles are forbidden. This is the sole reason that I told you to bring units with ranged abilities unless you really want to break the law. This isn't all that bad actually, this is the same as any of the other seal missions. There is a Baknamy, who really isn't a threat, and should really stop saying that you will die, because you have a Judge, and cannot die. Next, there are the Thunder Drakes, but they only have their Thunder Breath ability and that isn't all that powerful anyway. The Headless aren't going to be a problem, but if you let them get close to your front lines, they will hurt you pretty bad so make sure that they don't get too close. They have a fair amount of health, so play weaknesses if you can do so. The final is the Zaghnal, the upgraded Werewolf, which means that it is going to be a pain to get rid of. It is quite strong and has some powerful abilities to boot, so make sure that you take it out before you get that thing too close. Deal with the units as they cmoe to you, your units don't really need to move, let the enemy come to you and blow them right open. By finishing this, you want to go to the nearest town and read a notice that is on the Notice Board about a mysterious tower. That will unlock Brightmoon Tor. --==Mission A2-03 ~ The Moon Seal==-- "The Stone with No Name was no mere stone! What widsom did the ancient leave for us to find?

Law Forbidden : Lightning Weapons and abilities that use lightning are forbidden Same as before, head to the stone and examine the stone to finish this mission. Again, there are enemies that are going to block your way, 2 Floating Eyes and 1 Baknamy. Again, you don't need to take them up, but with free loot and free exp calling, why not? Floating Eyes have a very annoying suicide attack when they are their HP critical status, so make sure you get rid of them, or don't touch them at all. The Baknamy however, is the same as before, nothing much and as slow as usual. Take down the eyes first, then the Baknamy. A hunter would be very useful here with their Sidewinder attack. However, get ready for the next battle because it cannot be this easy. Read the law below to make sure you don't break either of the laws. Also, don't take too much damage here, the HP and MP status of your units will carry over. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Bludgeoning Weapons Attacks with rods, staves, poles, knuckles, hammers, and maces are forbidden. You have 2 Liliths, the evolved form of the Lamia, and 1 Lamashtu, the evolved form of the Lilith, 2 Werewolves and 1 Baknamy. You need to take down the Lamashtu if you can, because that little sucker can cast Night all over your troops, which turn them all to sleep, except for her troops. You need to take down the Werewolves first, not because they are dangerous and all, but they are the ones who have the power to crush your party if you don't take them out. The Lamashtu is next, while the Liliths and the Baknamy will be taken out along the way. I hope you brought a White Mage with Esuna for the battle since there are a lot of debuffs that are going to hit your targets along the way. Kiss by the Liliths is the most threatening with Doom and Charm. However, they aren't that strong in terms of level, so it shouldn't be too hard. Finish this quest and you unlock two things. You unlock a new area in the Camoa area, and you can now recruit Viera members for your clan. --==Mission A2-04 ~ Wanted: The Cyanwolf==-- "-WANTED!- Wanted: The Cyanwolf, a new strain of wolf cited for 17 counts of pasture damage and 24 counts of disturbing the peace.

Forbidden : Ice Weapons and abilities that use ice are forbidden There are 5 animals here, and you only need to target one. However, from where you start, it is pretty much impossible to get through the enemy Wolves here to get to the Cyan Worgen. Therefore, you need to smash through the enemy ranks and get to the Cyanwolf. Beware of Screech, it will confuse your units. To get out of the Confuse status, get one of the weaker units to smack the unit back to reality. Don't get a hard hitting unit, you don't want to kill your own troops. Easy mission since this is early game, though it is fun have 6 Lvl 18 units beating the crap out of some Lvl 7 Wolves. --==Mission A2-05 ~ Graszton Cup==-- "Clan Tourneys are Under Way!

Law Forbidden : Opportunity Commands Opportunity Commands are forbidden. This is the same as the Camoa Cup, the enemy levels as the same as you, so you are fighting the same level units. However, unlike the last cup, where MP was forbidden, you can't use opportunity commands. That is easier. You are fighting a clan called Humeism, so you are fighting a group of 4 humes. The first is the Soldier with all the Rend abililties and the Counter ability. The Blue Mage is armed with 3 Blue Magicks, Screech, Cornered and Unction. The White Mage is armed with Cure and Esuna, and the Black Mage is armed with the three basics and Fira. Now that you have a summon, in the Gigas Pendant, you can use it, but the Smash Gauge is going to be reset next battle, unlike your HP and your MP, so keep that in mind at least. Anyway, you need an order of battle. First of all, you want to take out that Black Mage, since they are quite powerful, especially with their Fira attack. Or, silence him to make sure he can't speak, or disable, that will take him out of battle, which allows you to take out the Soldier and Blue Mage. Those are quite powerful if you let them be. The last unit you should take down is White Mage, since that is the weakest unit on the team, but make sure that they don't decide to do their job, healing. Round 2 Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the Elimination Bout! Law Forbidden : Opportunity Commands Opportunity Commands are forbidden. You are now fighting a clan called Houndforce, a group of ranged units. There is a Gria Hunter, who is armed with Sonic Boom and Vitals Shot, as well as Speed Crush. There is a Hume Hunter as well, armed with Advice, Beat Down and Blitz. The Viera Archer is armed with Focus and Blackout, but with Blink Counter as well. And finally, the Hume Archer has Leg Shot and Blackout. I hope you have a white mage with you, because Esuna is more than important, it is solid white gold. Anyway, you want to take down the Gria first, because Speed Crush makes your turns come slower and slower and slower. Next, the Hume Hunter, because Beat Down isn't something that you want to have, even if your luck holds. The other two archers aren't all that dangerous, they will just debuff you, but Esuna can easily cure it. You definitely need your healers here, because the next round doesn't get any easier for you, its the finals. Round 3 Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the Final Bout! Law Forbidden : Opportunity Commands Opportunity Commands are forbidden. Your final bout are against the Veluga Pirates. There are 2 Vikings, 1 Juggler and 1 Thief will be fighting against you, so be very careful since your troops are already weak, and they are on full health. Man, this really does test your abilities. The Juggler is armed with Throw, Ring Toss, Molotov Cocktail and Dagger Toss. Lord Grayrl is armed with Thundara, Pickpocket and Strongarm. The second Viking is armed with Thunder and Pickpocket, and the Thief has some thievery skills and Cuisine. You want to take down the Juggler first, you want him dead real fast since STOP is going to make your units stop dead in their tracks. The next to go down is the Lord Grayrl character since magick isn't really nice. Then you have the Viking and the Thief left. It is up to you which way you want these suckers to fall. Don't worry about the units except for the Juggler first, all they did was try to steal my stuff. If you win, you get the little bonus of the Corsage of Corruption, which is another item that you can use to summon another Scion. --==Mission A2-06 ~ The Stone With No Name==-- "My teacher, Mauri discovered the message within the Stone with No Name, yet he passed away before he could see his research through till the end.

Law Forbidden : Restoring HP Restoring HP is forbidden. Well, this is strange, there are 3 stones here, but which to take. And there are also three Luchorpans here, but they are in the way, so we need to deal with them first before we can start playing around with the nice stones. They are quite easy to take down, they aren't all that powerful, weak level, lower health, but they do have some nice abilities that might be a problem. They somehow have Green Mage moves such as Tranq, Leap, Sleep, Bind and Silence. It really doesn't matter, you want to take these guys out as fast as you possibly can. The Middle Stone will react to the Star Seal, the one on the Left reacts to the Moon Seal and finally, the Right reacts to the Sun Seal. Or they could react in order of which you examine the stone. Well, this part of the mission is complete. Your Mission Objective : Defeat the Demon Wall! Law Forbidden : Reaction Abilities Reaction Abilities are forbidden. Wow, a Demon Wall. How efficient. You really don't want to stand in front of this wall, they will come and attack you, and Reaction Abilities are forbidden. In this mission, use your first turn to attack, and move out of the way so you don't get caught. Telega will teleport your units in front of the wall and makes sure they cannot move. Repel will move it forwards, making it hurt anything in its path and Shining Darkness is pretty much Debuff Central. You really want to take down this guy fast. He is weak to Holy damage, so if you have that, use it. Otherwise, you can bring in someone with Mirror Items in the first round. If not, I hope you have a healer with you, because this is going to be tough. Luckily, I had a Illusionist with Star Cross, and enough HP, a Dual Blade Parivir and a Holy Strike from a Master Monk to save me. At the end of this battle with a demon wall, you finish this mission and the Stone saga once and for all. You will also be able to access the Way of Judgment from the Ruins of Delgantua. This area is going to be needed for missions such as Wanted: Devotees. --==Mission A2-07 ~ The Whom Gods Bow==-- "I heard once from an Esper that there exists something greater than them - the scions.

Law Forbidden : Items Items are Forbidden. Your First battle is against the Bangaa Brotherhood. They are a group of 6 Bangaa, so this is going to be a melee battle. Items are forbidden, and you will be best to heed that advice, because Revive might be a bit important later on. Moredad the Cannoneer uses Foresight, Target and Mortar. The Warrior uses Rend Power, Rend Magick and Rend Speed and uses Counter. The Defender uses Hibernate and Mow Down, the Gladiator uses Fire Soul, Thunder Assault and Blizzard Tackle. The Bishop uses Water, Aero, Break, and this is aided by Blood Price. And finally, the Templar has Piercing Cry, Rasp and Silence. This is not an easy entry battle, so target the Warrior first so he doesn't debuff your team too badly. After that, take down the Cannoneer before he can lay down too much damage, and the rest are all yours to take down, this is the entry bout remember, save your units and make sure that they are at full strength for the next two rounds. Round 2 Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes in the Elimination Bout! Law Forbidden : Items Items are Forbidden. The second round are against the Nu Mou Nobles, and they are an all magick clan, so I hope that resistance is high and your weapons are damn sharp because that is the only good thing against magick users. The Arcanist uses Death, Graviga and Syphon, Halve MP makes his job a bit easier. The Time Mage uses Haste and Reflect. The Black Mage has Fire, Blizzard, Thunder and Blizzara. The White Mage has Cure, Cura and Esuna. The Alchemist has Items as always, as well as Protometeor, Rasp and Poison. Finally, the Illusionist has Prominence, Freezeblink, Tempest and worst of all, BLOOD PRICE. The CAPS should have made it clear who you need to target first. The Illusionist is the worst enemy here, so take him out as soon as your can because you don't want your whole team dead. Next, the Arcanist, he is the next most dangerous weapon. After that, the Alchemist and the Black Mage, they are quite painful with their abilities, but that is the extend of enemy attack firepower. The White Mage is the healer, the Time Mage is just annoying. Those who should be last to go. This is somewhat easier for your team if you brought a melee team from the first round, but hard for a magick clan. Round 3 Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes in the Final Bout! Law Forbidden : Items Items are forbidden. Surprise, the last clan you need to fight are the Arbiters of Death, one of the best clans there are. This is a powerful clan to fight, because they actually have a nice mixture of Magick and Physical attacks, which makes them a hard bunch. The Illusionist leader here has Deluge, Rockfall, Wild Tornado and uses Halve MP so in two turns, that means you need to move fast to kill him quick. The Dragoon has Fire Breath, Thunder Breath, Ice Breath and Counter. The Sniper has Doubleshot, Beso Toxico and Regen. The Sage uses Water, Aero and Items. Item Lore makes sure that he heals the damage that he takes real fast. The Berserker uses Scream, Furore, Smite of Rage and Counter. Finally, the Hunter uses Vitals Shot, Power Crush and Mind Crush. This is the last round, so you want to win the special prize in the end that is a summoning scion item. First, the Illusionist, the kill all your units move isn't something that makes me nice and happy. After that, you might want to attack the Sniper for all that damage that she can cause. Next, Hunter, Vitals Shot isn't very nice, it is a very powerful move if it can move your down to 1 HP since its HP Critical. The rest you can take care of. At this stage, you should have enough experience to take down these guys. Win this, and you win another tourney, and you have several more to go. --==Mission A2-10 ~ Odd Places==-- "There is a well about which strange rumours always spring up around this time of year.

Law Forbidden : Items Items are forbidden. This is a rather simple mission, despite the enemy monsters that are there to make sure you cannot succeed. All you really need to do is to EXAMINE ONE WELL. That is all, more on the ending later. Anyway, there seems to be a random amount of wells here. For some people, there are two, but when I tried, there was only one. So, examine a single well. There are Bombs here, with their usual Fire Attacks and Self-Destruct. The Adamantitan uses Sonic Spin, Munch and Matra Magick, the Axebeaks use Peck and the Fire Drake uses his normal fire set. This is a somewhat easy mission, not hindered by the law, so bring in some hunters to take all these suckers out. However, it is when you end the mission that is quite funny. Whoosh, you end up somewhere else. You can either end up in Sant D'alsa Bluff, Kthili Sands, Goug, Neslowe Passage, pretty much anywhere in Ordalia, which is where Fluorgis is located. Because this opens up the locations you cannot access before, it is imperative that you complete this mission several times to ensure that you can open all locations in Ordalia. --==Mission A2-11 ~ What Was Lost==-- "One of my house's products-in-development was stolen when bandits intercepted a shipment.

Anyway, it is simple, head to the Wood Village location and talk to the Bangaa Templar who is looking for a sword, that seems familar. The sword was being retrived by a clan, in the Bisga Greenlands with the enemy, who is Dayvis, that lazy, ******* thief. He has went somewhere, and that was the Galerria Deep he was heading to as well. Say that to complete this mission. --==Mission A2-12 ~ The Way of the Meek==-- "Someone's after me, I'm sure of it.

And its fun. Your Mission Objective : Protect Dayvis and Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Items Items are forbidden Well, you are going to avoid items, and you can't use some Phoenix Downs without items, and they can help revive fallen members. You are going to fight an average clan, Soldier, White Monk, White Mage, Black Mage, Archer and Warrior. Dayvis is a thief, with a very nice portrait to boot, well, better than your standard generic thief. There are 2 chests here, well, 1 chest and 1 urn. And we learn that Luso is too naive to look at the class of the person they are protecting. The problem with this mission is that the enemy has the high ground, and by the high ground, they are WAY higher than you. The first matter is going to be for your mages. They have magick that can hit, regardless of the height disadvantage they face. Soon, they will get their melee units down to fight dirty, and with that, you can easily counter them with your own. Your faster and more agile units can actually head up to the high ground by scaling the mountain on the left side of your map. The more painful units on this mission are the archer and black mage units. They can attack from high ground, making it hard to counter back. The white mage is going to be annoying since it will basically heal their fallen comrades. And don't expect that thief you're protecting to do anything, he won't do a thing. It looks like you are going to do this battle tough. And if you are lucky, you can critical hit your enemy down the cliff. If they fall from a good height, they will take damage, hey, I killed the white mage with a lucky critical. --==Mission A2-13 ~ Fluorgis Cup==-- "Clan Tourneys are Under Way!

Law Forbidden : Buffs Buffs are forbidden. Here, you fight Copykat, who is a blue mage. He is quite weak, at about level 29, and he is armed with Sandstorm, Bad Breath and Dragon Force, which isn't a lot to be quite honest. He also uses MP Shield and Immunity as well. Not a bad mix. Here, you want to finish him quick using your strongest fighter, who is your champion. Not a hard mission, well that's because I strongly overleveled the other team, by about 30 levels. I neglected to do this mission till very late, unfortunately. Your Misison Objective : Defeat all foes in the elimination bout! Law Forbidden : Fire, Ice, Lightning Weapons and abilities that use fire, ice, or lightning are forbidden. You are now fighting the Doubler who is a Red Mage. She is a level 27 ish unit, armed with a Ribbon, so don't worry about debuffing her to death. She has Fire and Silence, as well as Doublecast, which can be quite annoying since she can double fire you. She also has the Sharpshooting ability of Doubleshot, counter and Attack Up. You want to take her out relatively quickly, she can do a fair amount of damage if you let her doublecast you, which she can do once she has the right amount of MP to play around with. She isn't a hard target, she has far less defence, so you can melee her to death. You should steal the Ribbon if you can though, that is quite valuable. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the final bout! Law Forbidden : Reaction Abilities Reaction abilities are forbidden. Well, a Master Monk as your final challenge. This isn't going to be a very hard battle. Or is it? Bit late for the law, you really can't do much about it, so you can hope that your unit didn't have any Reaction Abilities, which is rather strange because most powerful units use Reaction Abilities. The Master Monk has Dark Fist, Withering Strike and Cross-Counter, which is extremely dangerous. He also has Magick Counter and Destroyer, which means you really need to act fast. The Cross-Counter will seriously kick your units ass if you aren't careful. This is the hardest battle that you are going to fight, so you need to keep your HP up to make sure you make the most of this battle. Guess Bedeviled isn't so strong after all. Since you win this when you actually do it yourself, you will get the Pin of Order Summoning item, which is another Scion Summoner that you can add to your nice collection. --==Mission A2-14 ~ The Way of the Timid==-- "I've heard there are many robbers about these days, and I'd rather not travel alone.

Law Forbidden : Targeting Self Actions targeting the user are forbidden. Even healing spells on yourself are forbidden, so be careful on breaking the law. You finally get to kill that annoying thief that you helped out earlier. Karma I guess. Dayvis is packing a nice sword, with Steal Gil to boot. The Seeq isn't as bad since it isn't a Ranger you're facing, the Soldier is pretty useless with Mug and Provoke. The Archer and Warrior are the problems. They have many debuffs to their skill set, so you want to get rid of them first before they can cause some damage. Esuna is useful here. The monk has air render, so air render him useless first. Take down the Archer and Warrior first, then the Monk, then the last three as they come close to you. Be careful, there are traps on this level and you don't want to step on one. Play the defensive game and let the enemy head towards you, let them step on the traps. --==Mission A2-15 ~ Pirate Attack==-- "We've received word that one of our merchant ships is being pursued by pirates. They're likely after her cargo of gemstones. She's docked in Graszton Port - someone go to her aid!

Law Forbidden : Harming Humes Actions that harm Humes are forbidden. I'm going to suggest that you break this law, before you have to fight two dangerous Humes, an Archer and a Black Mage, two classes that you really want to get rid of early before you go melee. This is an eaiser mission, well, if you are overleveled that is. There are 3 Vikings here, the Seeq class. They have Strongarm, which is an attack and steal move. They also have a thunder move, Grayrl having the Thundara attack. The rest are quite pathetic. The Black Mage is armed with the three basic magick spells, Fire, Blizzard and Thunder. The Moogle Knight is armed with Moogle Guard, which is a defensive move for that turn only and the Archer is with the basic Focus and Blackout. This is easy to win and not break the law if you have overleveled and can stand a beating. You can basically form a line at a choke point, where the enemy cannot move past without killing a unit. Below the bow of the ship is a point where there are only two spots for movement, perfect for choking. Gria on the top of the shop, sniping enemy units is also quite handy. Remember, you only need to kill the Lord Grayrl unit, and no one else, since that is your mission objective. --==Mission A2-16 ~ Wanted: Big Eyes==-- "-WANTED!- Wanted: Big Eyes, for 3 counts of the disruption of business and 25 counts of inducing shock.

Law Forbidden : Knockback Actions that knock the target back are forbidden Don't bring your archers to this level, they all have archer's bane here, which makes life a bit tougher, but you still have your mages. You don't get to use critical attacks either, or that will break the law. Your one weapon here is going to be Esuna. You need to be ready to cure any debuffs since the 2 Plagues and 3 Bloody Orbs are going to be laden full of debuffs. You see, you have a problem. The Plagues can turn your units into stone if you look at them, but if you expose your back to them, they come up and smack you for a lot of damage. The enemy is quite strong, so use HASTE if you have it with your tinker. You want to take down the Plagues first, but you need to fight off the Bloody Orbs en route since they are quite dangerous, not to mention fast to get new turns. If you have any holy attacks, this is the time to use them since they are both weak to Holy damage, but that doesn't mean you should go and use some Cure spells on them, Holy Attacks, but given the stage of the game you are in, you probably don't. Make sure the enemy doesn't get a chance to serious wound your party via the Debuffs, so a white mage is necessary. Otherwise, bring your strongest units to party. Fighters are useful, with Aurablast, since that is a powerful melee attack. And Luso sucks at making puns. ************** **SECTION A3** ************** --==Mission A3-01 ~ Goug Cup==-- "Clan Tourneys are Under Way! The next tourney will be the Goug Cup. Rules are as follows: - Maximum team size: 6 - Bouts to be won: 3 Tourney Guild - Goug Branch" -------------------------------------------------------------------- | Goug Cup | Rank: 26 | Fee : 400 Gil | Days : 20 | |-----------------------------+--------------------------------------| | Items (Required) : | Quest Type : Battle | | -- | Reward : | | Quest: Fluorgis Cup | 2630 Gil | | Month of Plumfrost | -- | | Dispatch/Recommended : | -- | | Lanista | -- | | -- | | | | Dispatch Mission ? = Yes | | Talents (Required) : | Can be canceled once accepted | | Negotiation : 0 | | | Aptitude : 0 | Destination : Goug | | Teamwork : 20 | Members : 6 | | Adaptability : 20 | Gain 52 Clan Points | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------- Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the entry bout! Law Forbidden : Grouping Ending the turn next to another unit is forbidden. The first battle is against the Wild Kupoon, a group of 6 Chocobo Knights. The Chocobo Knights, well, one is not mounted, and the other 5 are mounted. There is a White, Blue, Brown, Black and Red Chocobo, and they have the respective abilities that come along with those units. The biggest threat is the Red Chocobo, since it has the Choco Meteor ability to play with. The others have their weaker healing and buffing abilities that make them rather useless on the field of battle. The Black Chocobo has Choco Flame, so you might want to take that out next if you really are crazy about who to take out. They are all weak, they are hovering level 30, so not too hard there. Bring some healers, which you will need, and all of your units should be able to attack with ranged abilities, since this Cup, well, they all have grouping forbidden. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the elimination bout! Law Forbidden : Grouping Ending the turn next to another unit is forbidden. You are fighting the all Viera clan that is called Violene. There is a Fencer, White Mage, Sniper, Spellblade, Green Mage and Elementalist. This is a harder battle, because these guys actually have abilities that they can actually use. Thge Elementalist is going to have to go, with the Fire Whip and all. That is the Disable attack. Spellblade has Confusion Blade, which will more or less ruin the law for you. The Sniper has Doubleshot and Death Sickle which makes her a nice target as well. Other than that, it isn't hard for you to take them all down. Just make sure that the White Mage doesn't have a chance to do some healing because that will prolong the battle, which you surely don't want. I hope anyway. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the final bout! Law Forbidden : Grouping Ending the turn next to another unit is forbidden. This time, you are fighting Prima Donna, yet, the band. There is a Fencer, armed with Nighthawk and Earth Heal. That doesn't make her a prime target. The Geomancer has Advice, Shining Flare, Venom Squall, Life's Embrace and Earth's Embrace. She is a powerful target, and a prime one. The next one is the Raptor, armed with Shield Bash, Soul Crush and Cyclone. Finally, the Spellblade with Poison Blade, Stun Blade and Death Sickle. That makes her the prime target. You want to take her down first, then the Hunter, and the last two, well, you can just kill them at your own discretion. That means you will take down the last clan and if you decided to do this the hard way, or the way which requires battle, you get the Ewer of Darkness as a present, which is a Summoning Scion item. Another Summon. --==Mission A3-03 ~ Wanted: Mirage Bunny==-- "-WANTED!- Wanted: The Mirage Bunny, for 1,268 counts of footpadery abd 4,232 counts of eating and running, Small in size, adorable in aspect, and quick to flee the scene of the crime.

Law Forbidden : Instruments and Books Attacks with instruments and books are forbidden. This is going to be a hard map. MAKE SURE THAT BUNNY DOESN'T GET HP CRITICAL. It will vanish and unless you can see invisible units, you can't target it. There are also two Drakes with their breaths, and 2 Flans, with their elemental powers, as well as a Headless, a monster that most would first see here. Some call the Headless, Wendigo, probably translation and such. You want the bunny first, but take down all the other units to ensure that you get all the proper loot and the EXP, and know how to beat these guys in battle. There are traps all over the place so make sure you stick with your defensive battle plan. The best way to take down the bunny is patience. Use Doom to make sure it will be dead, or deal a Lot of damage to be certain. DO NOT LET IT on HP Critical, or you will be in some trouble and resetting if it vanishes and you can't detect it. There is no point in killing more monsters, they just keep coming. Hold your ground, kill the bunny and get outta here before you get swarmed with enemy reinforcements. --==Mission A3-05 ~ Loar Cup==-- "Clan Tourneys are Under Way!

Law Forbidden : Using MP Actions that consume MP are forbidden. Your first battle is against the Camoa Braves, and again, they aren't much of a fight to be quite honest. You want to take down their mage and their monk straight off the bat, those are the most powerful of the enemy units that you need to face. The rest are there as meat tanks, so they just sit there and take damage, yet don't dish out a hell of a lot. This time, when you choose units, the laws will be constantly changing, so since you cannot use MP in the first bout, it doesn't mean you can't use it in the second bout, so bring in a versatile team, but make sure you read ahead for all the laws so you can plan a perfect team. Anyway, take down the first team and move onto the second. This was just the first round in a bunch of 5 rounds. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the second bout! Law Forbidden : Actions By Viera Viera may only move and perform basic attacks. The next battle is against the Veluga Pirates, the peoplpe you've fought before, and they aren't that strong either. In fact, their only real threat to you is the Juggler, which you should take down first, and the thief who will decent to steal your items. The Vikings, whilst they do have some powerful melee and magick attacks, aren't that hard to take down either, since they are quite slow, making them a lot easier to hit and outflank. Again, this isn't a hard mission, these are the warmup missions for the last few rounds, which from this point, get progressively harder and harder. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the third bout! Law Forbidden : Items Items are Forbidden This law shouldn't be too hard, items don't normally get used all that often anyway. You now face the 100 Geniuses, a group, as you can guess, of magick users, which means you need to beat up the nerd, phyiscal style. They do have a Illusionist, Black and White Mage and Sage, so take down the Sage first. Immediately since the Sage is quite powerful and has extremely powerful magick attacks against you. Illusionist will be second. It doesn't need to be first since it does take some time to charge up the MP required by the illusionist to kill your units, so your White Mage will get quite a workout. The Black Mage and the White Mage will wrap up the mission, but they aren't that important, they are the least likely to do any damage to you, the sage and illusionist are. If you think this is hard, you haven't met the final round, or the fourth round for that matter, which is right now, next. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the elimination bout! Law Forbidden : Dealing < 50 Damage Dealing < 50 Damage is forbidden. The law shouldn't be too big a problem if you have a strong outfit, but hey, you never know. You are now up against the Arbiters of Death, and they pack a powerful punch of a Sniper, Sage, Hunter, Illusionist, Dragoon and a Berserker. This is quite a hard battle, since the enemy can hit hard, so make sure that your white mage is on the rear, ready to heal fallen troops. Take down the Illusionist first, because dealing massive amounts of damage to all of your troops isn't a nice way to start the battle, so target the illusionist for elimination. Once down, target the sniper, since the ability of Doubleshot isn't one that you really want to face. Other than that, you will probably want to target and take down the sage next, since it can dish out some damage, the Dragoon has a hell of a lot of HP to play with, so take down the Hunter instead, and that leaves the two front line attackers. Take them both down, but before you finish the round, heal up and get ready for the final battle, since it is quite a hard final battle. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the final bout! Law Forbidden : Targeting Distant Units Actions targeting units two or more tiles away are forbidden. So basically, your ranged units are pretty much screwed here, unless they have some nice abilities or finishing moves, Ultima comes to mind. Anyway, the final round is hard, because you are facing House Bowen, and even if you have fought them before, they are quite hard to take down. They pack an Assassin, Illusionist, Fighter and Ravager. You know the drill, Veis is the main target, since she is quite powerful and she can hide, which isn't very nice at all. The next is the Illusionist. It is a close second, but the Illusionist can target and damage all your troops, so that is something you clearly don't want. The Fighter and the Ravager isn't much of a problem. They have some nice abilities but it isn't anything you can't deal with, so finish them off and if you actually fought this mission, you get another Summoning Item, the Ring of the Wheel. --==Mission A3-06 ~ Wanted: Florah==-- " -WANTED!- Wanted: Florah, for various injuries inflicted on loggers, and for escaping incarceration.

Law Forbidden : >50 Damage Dealing >50 damage is forbidden. Ah, crap. You've got to be kidding me. Dealing more than 50 Damage. The problem here is that although Florah isn't a monster, the 2 Malboros, the Great Malboro and the Deadly Nightshade definitely are, and you don't want them lingering. This law leaves little room for criticals and decent attacks, so this is one time that I advocate one thing, BREAK THE LAW. That would make things a lot easier for you. The Great Malboro is quite dangerous with Malboro Song, but so is Florah by herself. That Gria is a Geomancer, and is quite a handful. Make sure that you take her down as fast as you can, if you don't care for the loot. If you care about the law, you are going to take it is and easy, but if you decide to break the law, just attack anything in your path. Hunters are good for law breakers, Sidewinder is a good attack, but if you follow the law, Wind Attacks and Hunters will certainly deal more than the 50 damage that is allocated in the law. So it really depends on how your do in the mission, law breaking or not. If not, you are going to take a fair amount of damage, so a Healer would be more or less a necessity.

Law Forbidden : Not Moving 1 Tile Each unit must move exactly 1 tile before ending its turn This law is a problem. You can only move a single tile per turn, so you need some space from the enemy if you want to do this properly. Ranged abilities can really help here. You are fighting a Parivir with Wind Slash, Iai Blow and Hoarfrost Blade. The Soldier is armed with all three Rend Abilities, the Juggler is using Weapons, Dagger, Smile and Gil Toss. The Fusilier uses Blindshot and Silenceshot. The Elementalist uses Fire Whip, Shining Air and Sliprain. And finally, the Trickster uses Suggestion, Hypochondria and Traumatize. You want to take down the Juggler first, that is because of the Dagger and Smile Toss, they aren't going to be helpful for your cause. The next one is the Elementalist. Fire Whip isn't that nice when your unit is the one that is disables. The next is the Fusilier or Parivir, they are the next in debuffs, and then the rest. --==Mission A3-09 ~ Ordalia Cup==-- "Clan Tourneys are Under Way! The next tourney will be the Ordalia Cup.

Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the entry bout! Law Forbidden : Knockback Actions that knock the target back are forbidden. Well, you are starting off this battle fighting the Fyrebird Clan, which consists of a Dragoon, Black Mage, Red Chocobo Knight, Ninja, Fighter and a Summoner. They are all based on the Fire Magick, so you need to make sure you douse their flames. Anyway, the Summoner needs to go. Summons deal a great amount of damage to start off, and fire whip, one one most useful abilities in the game, belongs to her, so be careful. The Chocobo Knight has the Choco Meteor, which really decides to cause some damage when it wants to. Take those two out first before sending all your forces to take down the rest of the enemy forces. Heal up and get ready for the next mission. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the second bout! Law Forbidden : Buffs Buffs are forbidden. Your second mission is against the Bedeviled Clan, armed wioth a Master Monk, Berserker, Fighter, Gladiator, Ravager and a Templar. The first fighter you want to take down is the fighter himself. This is because of the Dual Wield ability that really hampers things. This is going to be a mission where you are really going to get a big beating, so healers are quite important, they are important overall, but just don't buff your troops. The enemy are all melee units, so if you can dish out some damage from a range, that makes it a lot easier on your front line. Make sure your healer is behind in the rear, so they can't get targeted by the enemy. But after that, make sure your frontline troops are healed constantly, you cannot afford a breach. They will nearly always target a healer if they can. Well, not against mine. Try targeting a Fighter who has Dual Wield, who also happens to be a Healer, with Counter as Reaction. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the third bout! Law Forbidden : Solitude Ending the turn without a unit in an adjacent tile is forbidden. This mission is perfect if you basically want to keep a tight formation. A circle formation is quite interesting, with the healer in the middle, or you can just go crazy and melee your enemy. Make sure that you have Esuna ready to prevent immobolise abilities. You are now facing Jytras Pirata, a clan consisting of a Black Mage, Sniper, Moogle Knight, Thief, White Mage and Defender. Your first target should be the sniper, because she will have an ability that will instantly kill your units, which is quite a pain, even if you have a designated healer. The next one, as always, is the White Mage. The reason being that it will heal the enemy, and that makes you dish out more damage in order to beat them. Their Black Mage is a pain as well, since it can dish out the damage from a range, so quickly take it out after the white mage. The rest of the fight is a melee one, so that isn't too hard to finish, to bring out the swords and slice and dice the enemy. That finishes that mission. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the elimination bout! Law Forbidden : Not Moving Each unit must move at least 1 tile before ending its turn. This is an easy law to follow, you need to move in order to actually do a fair amount of damage. You now face Prima Donna again, and again, they have the same lineup of females, Fencer, Raptor, Spellblade and a Hunter. They aren't that hard to beat, but they still can do some damage. Take down Spellblade first, she is the one with the actual abilities, the rest are rather mundane. With all those abilties, she could hurt someone, hey, hey? Anyway, take her down, and the Raptor should be next, since she can dish out the damage. The Hunter and the Fencer are rather weak. You really don't need to make sure they die, make sure that all your forces are at full power for the last fight, since that is the most important of them all. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the final bout! Law Forbidden : Restoring MP Actions that restore MP are forbidden. The law should be easy to abide by, so this round, you are dealing with the Eastwatch group, armed with 3 Parivirs, 2 Ninjas and an Assassin. The problem here is that all the enemy units are extremely tough, and this is why they are on the final bout. Target the Ninja with Dual Wield first, that is always the biggest threat, but after that, where can I start. They are all threats. It is hard to single out any unit besides the ninja with dual wield since they are all the same, they hit for heavy damage as well. Just take them all out, and win this battle. For winning, you get the Tainted Cufflink for your troubles if you fight the fight. --==Mission A3-10 ~ Wanted: Tonberrion==-- " -WANTED!- Wanted: Tonberrion, for possession of a deadly weapon (carving knife) and rampant hatred.

Law Forbidden : Copycat Using the same action as the preceding unit is forbidden. There are 3 tonberries and a Tonberry king on this battle, and they are quite powerful for monsters. However, in order to use their dangerous moves, they need to stalk the target, and that will mean you have one turn before they cripple a unit. They will take half damage from all types of magicks, and will absorb dark magick, which means your magick users are going to be a white here. Instead, you need to focus on the physical side, especially Hunters to use Sidewinder, which is effective against all monsters. A White Mage is also handy, since a lucky attack from the enemy will pretty much cripple that unit for the battle. You need to be fast, you only have 4 rounds to finish this. I suggest a Time Mage/White Mage, so he can use Haste as well as heal your troops if need be. Ranged units are going to be useful here since the enemy is pretty far away from the start of the battle. Take them down one by one, or rush and gang up on the enemy. Use abilities instead of normal attacks due to the Copycat law. Remember, only stalked units will be targeted, units that aren't stalked are going to be fine. --==Mission A3-11 ~ Death March, III==-- " -The Game Is On!- Wanted: Participants for the greatest game in Ivalice!

Law Forbidden : Not Moving 3 Tiles Each unit must move exactly 3 tiles before ending its turn. Well, this law isn't all that bad, but this is a small arena and you are fighting 6 enemy units, so this is one where you need to make sure before you make a move. The enemy Ninja has Throw, Water Veil and Gold Veil, and Counter as well. The Trickster is armed with Suggesting, Hypochondria and Traumatize. The Time Mage uses Haste and Quicken. The Green Mage uses Tranq, Blind and Silence. The Assassin uses Last Breath, Aphonia and Ague. And finally, the Elementalist uses Fire Whip, Shining Air and Sliprain. This is one where every target seems like a good first target. The Elementalist seems to be a good choice. Disable isn't a nice debuff on any day of the week so that seems like a good choice. Next, the Assassin, because her Last Breath isn't really a good debuff either, because KO isn't very nice. Next, the Trickster, because Poison is painful to work with. Next, the Ninja and then you have the two remaining, the Time Mage and the Green Mage, and they can easily be taken out. If you really want, you can take down the enemy units with physical units because they are best at taking down mages. Make sure you move three spaces to sure than your don't break the law. This is a mission where breaking the law is definitely not ok. --==Mission A3-12 ~ Wanted: Combatants==-- "We have an unexpected opening in the roster of our forthcomingh tourney.

Get ready for a hellfight, because that is exactly what you are going to expect. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the entry bout! Law Forbidden : Dealing < 100 Damage Dealing < 100 Damage is forbidden. The Entry bout requires you to dish out a lot of damage, so that means a lot of backstabbing for the mission. Here, you start off fighting the Arbiters of Death, packing heat in the form of a Sage, Illusionist, Sniper Hunter, Berserker and a Dragoon. Quickly sneak up behind the Sniper and the Hunter, taking out their ranged element, whilst you deal with the Illusionist before he can get enough MP to wreck havoc. The Sage has the Gigaflare ability, and depending on your resistance, you may want to take him down first, or worry about him later, it is up to you how you deal with them. This is the easy round, if you have trouble here, you are going to have a lot of trouble for the rest of the mission. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the second bout! Law Forbidden : Ranged Weapons Attacks with bows, greatbows, guns, hand-cannons, and cards are forbidden. In this mission, your ranged weapons are taken away, so you might want to rebuild your force and rearrange how you attack force if you do have some ranged units in your force. Anyway, you are facing a new clan called the Nortyrants, which is based on a Geomancer, Seer, Parivir, Flintlock, Green Mage and a Trickster. They have a lot of ranged units. The Parivir and the Seer are the melee attacks, so I suggest that you take down the Seer. The Parivir can hit for a lot, and given that you are in a confined area, running is not an option, so you really need to take them down before they can dish out too much damage. The Flintlock and the Trickster, who have extremely long ranges, are less powerful here, since they can be easily disabled and taken out without a short period of time. The Green Mage will try to cause some trouble with their debuffs, but other than they, the enemy isn't all that powerful, this is only the second bout. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the third bout! Law Forbidden : HP < or = 20 Having less than 20 HP is forbidden. This is an easy law to follow if you have a few healers to play with on this level. You are now fighting Prima Donna, and they are the same group of the Fencer, Hunter, Ravager and the Spellblade. Like fighting them before, you need to take out the Spellblade and then the rest of the group since the Spellblade is the one that actually packs any deadly power, debuffs are quite nasty you see. The Raptor should be next, but it is not up to me to dictate how you decide to beat the crap out of your enemies. This is quite easy, only 4 members to defeat, you aren't so lucky from here on in. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the fourth bout! Law Forbidden : Targeting all Units Actions targeting all units are forbidden. This law prevents your illusionist abilities from being used, so with that out of the picture, you need to work around it. Your are now fighting Eastwatch again, armed with the three Parivirs, the 2 Ninjas and the lone assassin. The same as before, the strategy isn't changed much. The first target is, as before, the ninja with the Dual Wield ability, and after that, everyone else. They are all equally dangerous, though the Parivirs are more capable of dishing out the damage whilst the lone assassin is far superior to sneak up using her skills, so kill the enemy on a first come, first serve basis. Kill all of them, and after this battle, you have passed the halfway point in this battle. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the fifth bout! Law Forbidden : Back Attack Attacking a unit from behind is forbidden. The fifth round forces you to attack your forces head on since back attacks are now forbidden. You face the Delite Delta clan, comprised of an Assassin, a White Mage and a Summoner. It doesn't seem like a fair battle, but when you see their abilities and strength, it is. You need to take down the White Mage first, and you can only do so with the physical attack, magick attacks just get the flick back to you, making it harder to defeat the enemy effectively. With the White Mage down, you can take down the rest of the forces without the enemy healing their forces causing you to do more work. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the elimination bout! Law Forbidden : Ligntning Weapons and abilities that use Lightning are forbidden. Here, you are denied the ability to use the power of electricity, but you are now facing House Bowen. With the Assassin, Illusionist, Ravager and Bowen himself, this is the second last battle that you need to fight. The Assassin, like before, has to go first before she can cause too much damage. She will be able to dish out the damage behind your lines so take her out quickly, and after that, quickly take out the Illusionist before he can pull off any tricks as well. Bowen and the Ravager will be capable of hitting your frontlines hard, so before the end of the mission, make sure you heal all your forces before heading into battle, the last one is going to be tough. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes in the final bout! Law Forbidden : Copycat Using the same action as the preceding unit is forbidden. The law should be easy to follow, so just go ahead and finish this. You are facing the Hopcroft clan, armed with a Ninja, White Mage, Raptor, Arcanist, Dragoon and a Black Mage. The White Mage has to go, even if you lose one of your units, take down the white mage since it will heal their fallen comrades. With the white mage gone, it makes it a low easier for you to finish this mission. The Arcanist is another threat. The Arcanist has the ability to take away 50% of your HP in one fell swoop, so take him out quickly. The Ninja is next, with the ability to inflict Doom, you want him dead quickly. You can prevent it somewhat with Reraise, but that wastes time for your white mage or your healer. The Black Mage is another target, since he does have the Smile Toss ability, which isn't very helpful for your cause either. The Raptor and the Dragoon should be last, they are just frontline units. At the end of this, you also get the Gift of the Judge-Sal, a nice bonus and another summoning item. --==Mission A3-14 ~ Wanted: Gaitsnipe==-- " -WANTED!- Wanted: Gaitsnipe, for poaching offenses, and the assassination of notable personages.

Law Forbidden : Ranged Weapons Attacks with bows, greatbows, guns, hand-cannons, and cards are forbidden. Crap, there goes the element of weakening the enemy. Here, you are facing Gaitsnipe, a Hunter, a Moogle Flintlock, a Viera Sniper, a Bangaa Cannoneer, a Hume Archer and a Moogle Fusilier. The Hunter has Vitals Shot, which will give you a random debuff. Not nice at all. However, he can use the rend powers from a range, so be very careful. The Archer has a Leg and Arm shot, which can be rather nasty as well. The Cannoneer has some rather powerful attacks, but each has a downside of losing a turn. The sniper is far more dangerous. Armed with Double Shot, Beso Toxico and Death Sickle, she is one that you want to take down rather quickly. The Fusilier has 3 shots that are annoying, Confuse, Blind and Silence. That would be a prime target. The Flintlock has supportive buffs for their team. Be careful of traps as you move. You should take them all down, so what you need to do is bring a white mage and magick units. They are your ranged units. Units that can target all are especially useful for your team. Long range abilities such as Chocobo Rush and Air Render are also quite useful. The Closest ranged units to you are the ones that you want to take down. You should take down the Sniper first, she is the most dangerous threat with Death Sickle. Then, it is how you want to take them down, however, make sure they are ganged up upon, that is the easier way for victory. You need to take them all down, so make sure that you take them down quick before your own troops are depleted. I find that Stop and Beat Down make an excellent combination for making sure you don't get damage and kill the enemy --==Mission A3-15 ~ Something's Dropped!==-- "One of the mooglewalkers we use for transporting goods has overturned!

Law Forbidden : Reaction Abilities Reaction Abilities are forbidden. Again, another mission where you need to collect all the sparkles, not just get lucky. This mission is a mix of monsters and units. There are 2 Yellow Flans, and they are quite annoying. The Thief might be a problem with the juggler skills, which have Molotov Cocktail and Dagger Toss. The latter is the one you don't want, it pretty much means disable. The Beastmaster is quite weak, as well as the Hume Thief, since they aren't going to do much at all, except steal your stuff. Why the Beastmaster is beyond me, you can't use any beasts. However, there are traps all over the place, so that makes it necessary for a white mage to be used. Next, there are going to be enemy reinforcements as well. They will constantly turn up, so as many as you kill, they will always be more. So, kill all that you can, and when you can't be bothered to fight anymore, collect all the gemstones. You might want a White Mage for the Traps, and some Magick users against the enemy flans and such. Melee fighters to provide the force to surge against the enemy troops there. Take those that several of the gemstones have traps guarding it, which makes this mission a pain to finish quickly. --==Mission A3-16 ~ Hunting Season==-- " -The Game Is On!- Wanted: Participants for the greatest game in Ivalice!

This is where you need to bring the best units, and you are facing a White Monk, Archer, Viking, Soldier, Green Mage and a White Mage. They are extremely strong, so you need some tactics to take them out, and unlike previous cups, this is all or nothing, you need to take them all out now before it is too late. The first target is the White Mage, not only for the massive healing powers, he is also armed with sage powers as well, so that makes him an express target. You want to get rid of the Archer before she can put doom on your units which isn't exactly a nice way to make friends to be sure. Take down the Archer, and then the Green Mage, because she is also extremely strong. You need to take out the enemy before they can take you out, so bring in a healer to revive your fallen troops, even a soldier than can take a hit for the team is necessary, as long as you survive and the other team doesn't, you win. --==Mission A4-02 ~ Wanted: Icicle Ark==-- " -WANTED!- Wanted: Icicle Ark, for encasing both a manor and its lord in solid ice.

Law Forbidden : Fire Weapons and abilities that use fire are forbidden. This is going to be a pain, since you can't use the element that hurts the most. Anyway, this is a defeat all foes mission, there are 6 enemies here that you need to defeat. The Gladiator is armed with Blizzard Tackle and Ice Breath. The Parivir is using Water Veil, Unspell, Hoarfrost Blade and Wind Slash. The Illusionist is using Freezeblink and Deluge and Blood Price. Crap. The Summoner is using Shiva, Shining Air, Sliprain and Blood Price as well. Crap. The Scholar is using Rime Bolt Tome, Water and Aero. The Black Mage is using Blizzard and Blizzara. This is going to be annoying since the two enemy units have Blood Price, meaning that they can cast their spells as long as they have health. So it is pretty obvious that you need to take down the Illusionist and the Summoner pretty quickly. The enemy Scholar is going to build up their MP reserves for their spells, so you need to quickly take that sucker down as well. Next is the Gladiator and the Parivir, and both have a Counter-esque reaction attack. They aren't all that powerful, but if you let them get too close, they will hit you for a fair bit of damage.

There are only 4 enemy units here, 2 Thieves, a Beastmaster and a RockTitan. Wow, that makes is quite an easy mission. The Hume thief has Steal Gil and Limelight as well as Loot Level 4. He also possesses Throw from the Ninjutsu skill set, Return Fire and Reveal. The Moogle Thief possesses Steal Gil and Loot Level 4 as well, but also has Molotov Cocktail and Dagger Toss. The Rocktitan is only armed with Headbutt and Rain of Stone as well as using Counter. And finally, the Beastmaster, who is only using the Beast Lore of Shelling, which is quite obvious. The first one that you want to take down is the Moogle Thief, the skills from the Juggler skill set are quite dangerous, Molotov Cocktail makes Berserk and Dagger Toss means Disable. Now after that, take down the Hume Thief so he can no longer steal items off you. Finally, the Rocktitan because he can cause some damage, and well, the Beastmaster, he isn't all that powerful, save him for last. --==Mission A4-06 ~ Wanted: Floraxion==-- " -WANTED!- Wanted: Floraxion, for 23 counts of violence, and the general spreading of mayhem.

Law Forbidden : Actions by Viera Viera may only move and perform basic attacks. Well, there goes my Summoner/Elementalist. You are fighting a Rafflesia as you can guess by giant plant, and 2 Great Malboro. You only need to take down the Rafflesia to win this mission because it is a Headhunt. You might want to take out the Malboro from a distance because getting too close to the Rafflesia is a problem, because all their cloud attacks will attack units within a two tile radius of the massive plant. The Malboro will be a problem if you try to take down the Rafflesia and they will debuff you. Bring Fire users for the Rafflesia and Hunters as well. White Mages with Esuna is going to be critical if you are going to use melee fights since they are going to suffer from debuffs. There are a fair amount of traps around the Rafflesia as well, the Charm variety. There is only a single spot where there isn't a trap, its to the right of the plant, and it is the slope up. If anyone is wondering, the Rafflesia has about 1200-1300 HP, which is why it is currently at ??? at the beginning. --==Mission A4-08 ~ Wanted: Musicians!==-- "A member of our troupe has been injured and won't be able to perform at the music competition in Fluorgis.

Law Forbidden : Missing Missing with an action is forbidden. You must love that law, don't you. Missing is forbidden. How can you prevent that 1% missing out of a 99% hit? Well, you can't, unless you manage to STOP all of them. You've gotta love the beginning, awkward moments. Now that's cute, they all have names. Mark I is a Moogle Knight, armed with Moogle Attack, Moogle Lance and Moogle Rush. Mark II is a Black Mage, who uses Fira, Blizzara, Thundara and Thundaga. Mark III is a Juggler with Ring Toss, Molotov Cocktail, Ball Toss and Smile Toss. Mark IV is a Chocobo Knight, or a White Rider, using Choco Beak and Choco Recharge. Quite rare, the White Chocobo is, quite hard to get. And finally, we get Mark V, a Flintlock with Prime, as standard, and Ether Boost. This isn't all that hard, just a bunch of Moogles. First of all, take down the Black Mage, you really don't want these guys to bash your team up into tiny little shreds. Next, or even first, the Juggler. Ring Toss isn't all that nice to members of your team as well. Now, with the Knight, Rider and Flintlock left, you need to target the Knight first since he can dish out the damage. Next, well, the Flintlock and the Rider both pretty much suck, so take them out as you please. Bring a White Mage to this battle, there are traps around. And at the end of the battle.

Thats right, it is a 6 against one fight, but still, you shouldn't take this quest until your units have a decent level or some good skills. She has Doublecast and Silence with her Red Magick, and Fire Whip, Sliprain and Boulder Crush with her elementalist skills. That is where the danger really is. Since she is so high up, use ranged weapons to weaken her. Or, sneak a unit and Mirror Item her to death. She is a hard fight, so have some fast units to sneak up and quickly beat her. Don't try to debuff her, she is immune to all debuffs. And there are traps lying around, so bring a White Mage if you want.

Law Forbidden : Targeting all Units Actions targeting all units at once are forbidden. Wow, these guys actually talk, and they talk about how they actually equal the power of Man's sins. A bit religious, but we still need to take them down anyway. There are three mutadragons, and they are all as bad as each other. They are quite powerful, they have some decent abilities, as they are listed in the Bestiary, with the most powerful probably being the Lightland Warder, then the Flaresky and finally, the Gaiasea. If you want to fight using Magick, you need Holy for the Flaresky, Ice for the Gaiasea and Earth for the Lightland. That means that Elementalists are going to be important since they can use Earth, Paladains and Master Monks for Holy and Black Mages for Ice. The best way, however, is to use either Hunters or any unit with Sidewinder or any unit with Mirror Items, because although they might have high health, taking 400 HP away with a single X potion is quite painful for any unit. You need to take all of them down to finish the mission. There are also traps around, so be careful. At the end of the battle, the Dragons are still alive, and they retreat, promising that they will return when they regain strength. --==Mission A4-15 ~ Blue King of Cinquleur==-- "We of Cinquleur seek battle with the strongest of warriors!

Law Forbidden : Using MP Actions that consume MP are forbidden. Well, what a painful law, but that means you need to go in all physical, or a well placed Stopshot will make life a bit easier, but I digress. The enemy is a Blue Mage, he uses Quake and Expose Weakness, which isn't a really big skill set. You think that's it? He also has Magick Frenzy, Counter and Dual Wield. Dual Wield with 2 Light Sabers, aptly so since I just heard a Star Wars tune. You really need to take him down fast, so make sure that this guy doesn't linger any longer than you would like. Debuffs seem like a good idea, something like a Stopshot will do wonders here, it is basically giving a license for free hits. This guy is level 55, so odds are, you are going to get a lot of EXP for this mission, so bring in some underleveled units as some extras or as a valuable distraction. You get the Peytral armour after this battle as well. --==Mission A4-16 ~ Wanted: Woodworker==-- "My roof's about to collapse under the weight of all this snow.

Law Forbidden : Items Items are Forbidden This is the hardest boss in the game. Mountain at least 2000HP, this requires the best of the best of your troops. You need to bring in the best attackers, and a healer, and if you want to defeat this sucker quickly, users of the Ultima Attacks and Seeqs with Mirror Items and lots of X Potions. The problem is that this boss can charm and doom your units, so that makes it a very hard target to approach if you constantly need to knock them back into line. Getting your healers to whack charmed units as well as having ReRaise on them ready to go. Now, to attack this damn thing. You seriously need to be high level to take this sucker on. What you should bring, besides highly leveled units, are strong attackers. If you want to take it from a range, Hunters with Sidewinder or Ultima Shots is a nice option. Melee units, Dual Wield is the way to go, Mirror Items is a definite must if you want to take him down quickly. It is a cheap way to win, but you are facing an uphill battle, so it is your choice if you want to do it this way or not. --==Mission A5-03 ~ Green King of Cinquleur==-- "We of Cinquleur seek battle with the straongest of warriors!

Law Forbidden : Restoring HP Actions that restore HP are forbidden. Verre is quite a powerful enemy unit, and she isn't a king. Viera are a female race, not a male race. It should be Queen. Anyway, she is a level 66 Green Mage and she isn't a weak enemy. Alway, she has a Ribbon, which pretty much prevents all debuffs against her, Sprint Shoes that make her move faster and Mirror Mail that will give her the ability to reflect magicks off her, so really, you have to go for a good old beatdown. While her Green Mage abilities are lacking, only having Tranq, she does have some powerful Assassination abilities in the form of Last Breath, Nightmare and Ague. And with Blink Counter while wielding a Hammer, it isn't going to be nice. The best way to start the battle is to use ranged units. No magick, so you need to stick to Cards, Guns, Hand-Cannons and bows. They are going to be weakening the enemy unit. Then, your melee units can rush in and pound her to a pulp to win. Or you can just sneak a Seeq in with Mirror Items and that will make it a very fast fight. After this mission, you don't get a nice weapon, you get the Save the Queen weapon, no special weapon. Well, you can't have it all your way. --==Mission A5-04 ~ Wanted: Marksman==-- "We've begun development of a new gun, kupo! But developing and testing are two very different things.

You need to dispatch a Fusilier, and a Fusilier only, a Flintlock and a Cannoneer cannot do because they use Hand Cannons and they require someone who uses guns, and that would be the Fusilier. You've gotta love the name of the Department though. --==Mission A5-07 ~ Black King of Cinquleur==-- "We of Cinquleur seek battle with the strongest of warriors, kupo!

Law Forbidden : Debuffs Debuffs are forbidden. Wow, we face a Moogle Black Mage. Despite his size, he is quite powerful and you really don't want to get on the wrong side of him. This guy is immune tow most debuffs, absorbs Ice, Lightning and Fire. He is armed with Firaga, Thundaga and Blizzaga, uses Toadsing and is also armed with Reflex. So, to beat him, you really need to usen physical melee weapons, either ranged weapons, bludegons or edged weapons, magick is more or less useless since he absorbs the three main elements, which also happens to make a good healer. The best thing about this mage is that you don't have to deal with the abilities being used against you the entire time, the Ga spells require 18 MP, so once every two turns, You really need to move fast, using good evasion units to avoid being the target of his abilities, and make sure you can cure the Toad debuff, because that is exactly what Toadsong does. After the battle, you get the Crown Scepter for this battle. --==Mission A5-08 ~ Wanted: Caretaker==-- "I just received word that my grandmother hurt herself, kupo.

Law Forbidden : Missing Missing with an action is forbidden. Another crappy law that you need to deal with, so try to stop him quickly to avoid that 1% miss that seems to happen more than just 1% of the time. Quite interest that. Anyway, the White Mage here is actually a Nu Mou, and a powerful one at that. He is also armed with Scathe, Gigaflare and Bio, and uses Blood Price to achieve the means of getting the spells cast even when he doesn't normally have the ability to use it. The best way to deal with this guy, who is Level 88, is to use a fair amount of ranged units, which is quite useful to deplete his HP. This is one of the more interesting battles, you will force him to use Blood Price often if you decide to keep attacking him, since he uses MP Shield. That you mean that every turn, he will only have 10 MP to play with, and that isn't a lot of cast those spells with, so he is going to be Blood Pricing a fair amount of the time. He is also armed with some interesting items, such as the Ninja Tabi, but what he really lacks is the White Mage skills that you would think that he would have, he only has Cura and Refresh, which isn't a lot, so you can easily make him go bye bye quick. At the end of this battle, you get a Cheer Staff, and the final battle against Cinquleur will be unlocked. And that is one of the hardest missions in the game. --==Mission A5-14 ~ The Five Kings==-- "We of Cinquleur seek battle with Clan !

Law Forbidden : HP < or = 200 Having less than 200 HP is forbidden. This is where you need to fight all the kings that you have fought, and this is an extremely tough battle. You battle a Black, White, Green, Blue and Red Mage here, and if you thought that taking them down one by one was hard enough, this is even harder. Now, on the targets. The Red Mage and the White Mage take the first spot, since the red varient will be able to use Doublecast, and the White Mage is a pain in the ass because it can heal other units. That is always a pain in the ass. Green Mage is going to be next, seeing that there are some nasty debuffs coming from her. The Black and the Blue Mage top off the rest, they are the least dangerous of the most dangerous clan you are going to face. If you want to win here, I suggest that you use the Mirror Items ability because that is one of the best abilities to counter and defeat them quickly without losing all your units. You are going to have to take down the kings one by one, this is because you simply lack the manpower to take them on one by one. This is hard, I know, but the only way to beat their superior force is to use superior tactics. That is the only way for an inferior force to defeat a far superior one. After this hellhole of a battle, you get the Condemner's Choker, which is another Scion summoning item. ************** **SECTION B1** ************** --==Mission B1-01 ~ A Step Further==-- "I seek someone to escort me to Targ Wood, providing protect as necessary.

I perfer that you do the quest, because it is more fun, and you get some good loot as well. Your Mission Objective : Protect the Tomatoes and Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Targeting All Units Actions targeting all units at once are forbidden. The law only works if you have an Illusionist or Tinker, but you probably don't, so don't worry. There are 4 Cockatrices to kill, and there are 3 Deadly Nightshades to protect, the Deadly Nightshade is actually the tomato, so thats that cleared up. Take down the ones with Scurry first, they will be the ones that will move the fastest, and the ones that will attack the Tomatoes. You only have 4 units on this mission, and 2 entry points, so two units at each point. Or you can have one unit on one Cockatrice, but that isn't as effective as actually ganging up on them. I might warn you, the Tomatoes will attack the enemy, making them that much harder to protect. And who would want to eat Nightshade, isn't that stuff dangerous? Send your mages on the right side of the map, since there are 2 Nightshades there, and Melee units on the left side, since there is only 1 Nightshade there. --==Mission B1-05 ~ Beetle in a Haystack==-- "I was out walking my pet scarab beetle, Nero, and I lost him!

I perfer battle, nothing better than free EXP, and more importantly, free loot, which is VERY IMPORTANT. Your Mission Objective : Find the Scarab Beetle! Law Forbidden : Lightning Weapons and Abilities to use lightning are forbidden You start this off facing two axebeak and two wolves. They will keep on coming in this mission, so really, you need to find the beetle and not defeat all foes. Defeating all foes does nothing anyway, so you might as well kill them all, get the loot and finish the mission. --==Mission B1-06 ~ Wayward Drake==-- "I awoke one morning to find my drake, Goud, missing without a trace. I haven't the slightest notion where he might have gone. Well, that's not entirely true. I've heard rumour that a drake was recently sighted in the Aldanna Range.

Law Forbidden : Ice Weapons and abilities that use ice are forbidden. This is a harder mission because they have the high ground, but the thing is that they don't have archers or mages to take advantage of this high ground. You are going to fight a Fire Drake, 2 Thunder Drakes and 1 Werewolf. The Fire Drake is Goud, and the one you want. Do not kill Goud, weaken him means exactly just that, you want to get him to HP Critical, but not KO. That means specific damage, and you want to make down that guy last because you can have your units skip their turns if need be. The Werewolf is the one you want to take down first, he probably has the strongest attack of the enemy forces, then the Thunder Drakes, and finally, the Fire Drake. Also, let the enemy come towards you in this mission, there are plenty of traps here. Make sure you bring a white mage to make sure those traps don't kill you completely, you don't want that. DO NOT KILL GOUD, THAT WILL END THE MISSION IN AN INSTANT FAILURE. --==Mission B1-07 ~ The Whites of Its Eyes==-- "My pet's gone and run away again. How many times does this make? I've lost count!

Law Forbidden : Fire, Ice, Lightning Weapons and abilities that use fire, ice or lightning are forbidden. This is a relatively simply mission, you need to take down 3 Bloody Orbs while protecting one, and you have them outranked two to one in terms of units on the battlefield. You want to keep the white orb alive, and that means either letting it use Vampire to leech the health it needs or healing it with a white mage. Take them on one by one, dealing with those that are the closest to your units. They are weak to Earth and Holy, but that isn't much help. Just use some ranged attacks to demolish them or go melee on them and pound them into the ground. Other than that, gang up on each of the orbs and take them out. Make sure that the White Orb lives, if she dies, you fail the mission, like before. --==Mission B1-08 ~ Flown the Coop==-- "I was taking one of the cockatrices for a walk in the Menagerie grounds when it flew into a frenzy and lashed out at me with its beak.

Well, there goes that chicken drumstick I was about to deep fry. Anyway, bring all your ranged units, especially hunter with Sidewinder to wrap up this mission. You need to whack Okta into HP critical for the mission part to be done and kill off the other Cockatrices because we don't want them. There are traps around, so hunters are your best bet. Magick is also a good idea, provided that you have a water based attack. With no melee fighters, you'd hope that the enemy will stay away from you to ensure that you survive. Let the enemy come to you, take them out, rinse and repeat. Don't kill Okta, you want it on HP critical, and not dead. --==Mission B1-09 ~ Prepared with Love==-- "My husband's forgotten his lunch again! After all the work I put into making it ...

You can kill as many as you want, as long as you have 4 dead malboros before you talk to the bishop in the end. Take down the enemy units sparingly, take them down to ensure you get the Malboros.

Although you could break the law and that would mean you get this mission done faster, although you miss out on the Law Bonus. You are going to fight Flans, except that you have a specific mission. You only want to kill 3 Yellow Flans, and ONLY 3. You don't want any other type of Jellies, so don't kill them at all. Don't touch them. Just take the three yellow jellies. However, if the other jellies are causing you problems, you can eliminate them, as many as you wish. But the three yellow jelly rule still applies.

Laying traps everywhere. The worst are the monsters, since they can easily debuff you, and cause some pain, which you don't really want. The Flan and the Grenade need to be taken down first, since they are the mages that you are going to be facing for the mission. I hate mages, since they can cause a lot of damage, which is good if you have them, not good if you don't have them. The enemy are lowly leveled, around 7 to 9, which means life a lot easier for you, if you overlevel them that is.

Law Forbidden : Back Attack Attacking a unit from behind is forbidden. That law includes back attacks using all abilities, including Magick. Attacking the enemy from behind with magick IS FORBIDDEN. Anyway, this is a simple mission, so you don't need back attack. You face a Sprite, a Lamia, a Lilith and a Dreamhare. All in their early teen levels, so it is quite an easy mission. Play with the weaknesses such as Fire to kill the bunny. Knock out the Spirte since it has slow and that can be quite annoying to deal with. Take down the Lamias and the Liliths before you decide to search the area for some nice sparkles. Again, it is quite random where the mushroom is, so either search and hope you are lucky, or take your time and finish this mission without enemies. --==Mission B1-16 ~ Showdown==-- "Clan I beg your assistance!

Law Forbidden : Back Attack Attacking a unit from behind is forbidden. Watch out for Piston Drop, which will damage all the units on the battlefield. You will only get 3 units to play around so make sure that they count. There are no additional reinforcements visible, but 3 will arrive once you start the battle. That is useful. You want healers, because you are going to be taking a beating out there, Hunters, because they can deal good amounts of damage to Klesta, since he is a monster. Watch out, he has nearly 1000 HP and with Absorb HP, this is going to be a massive fight. However, because this monster is so damn big, it will actually make it easier for your units. They will nearly always get a 99% accuracy rate because he is so damn big. Bowen and the Illusionist Tweigel will never be killed, so you can depend on them Once HP for this big bird reaches half, you will see what the Cloudy Sap was for. It will stay and you will finish this big bird off. Take the corpse and send it to KFC for Colonel Sanders.

I find battle more fun, and in this case, it is. And we meet an old friend, Klesta. Your Mission Objective : Defeat Klesta Law Forbidden : Harming the Weak Actions that harm a lower level unit are forbidden. Unless your levels are above Klesta, the level will vary based on your clan's average level and Luso's level, so it really shouldn't be a problem unless you have a seriously large level advantage. You only get to play with 3 units, House Bowen will be sending in some reinforcements, controlled by the AI, the House will send in a Fighter, a Gria Ravager, a Nu Mou Illusionist, and if you completed Veis, Assassin quest, you will see her as well. Given that the AI is going to go all out, you need to either take down the enemy really quick so not too much damage can be done, or have some healers to heal. Remember that Klesta has a MASSIVE height advantage here, so your archers aren't going to have a fun time. You are better off bring in mages to help dish out some damage. However, that bird has a HELL of a LOT of HP. That is seriously going to take some time to whittle down, and given the amount of damage this bird is going to do, you are going to have a hard time. I heard Colonel Sanders is looking for new sources of poultry. Anyway, Bowen designates you to rear support, but you aren't going to take that for an answer. Anyway, move up and attack the bird. Note that Bowen cannot die, nor will the Illusionist in this mission. After the battle, you learn more about this bird, and Bowen himself, and it is rather interesting. Better not spoil it for you. Anyway, once the bird's health reaches zero, it flies away before Luso can sell it to KFC. After this mission, there is another unmarked quest in the area, which is another battle against Klesta, with the help of Bowen. More EXP and some loot if you complete this successfully. --==Mission B2-04 ~ A Fatal Mistake==-- "A local watch hired us to set traps to help them deal with their monster problem.

Law Forbidden : Targeting all Units Actions targeting all units at once are forbidden. This is a timed mission, you need to knock out a hell of a lot of traps in the three round limit that they give you. And don't think of getting the enemy onto the traps, they all have Avoid Traps as a passive ability. You are going to avoid the enemy here, you want to spring the traps and not look for a fight. There are Baknamy, Luchorpans and a Tonberry. These will be dangerous if you ignore them for too long, so you need to bring in some units with high movement, high speed and high jump won't be a disadvantage either.

Its an easy mission, step and activate all the traps to finish the mission, except that there are about 4 Baknamy units that make your life that much tougher. They all have Avoid Traps as their passive ability, so the enemy won't be able to spring them. For the rank of this mission, the enemy levels are quite low.

The Yellow traps mean that they are silence gas, which places Silence on your units, the Blue traps are Sten Needles, which reduces the HP of your unit by half. --==Mission B2-09 ~ Wanted: Lang Bros==-- "-WANTED!- Wanted: The Lang Brothers, for the injury of 28 members of the Arbiters of Death, a clan to which they formerly belonged.

Your Mission Objective : Defeat the Lang Brothers! Law Forbidden : Actions by Nu Mou Nu Mou may only move and perform basic attacks. There goes my White Mage and Black Mage in a single shot, the law basically kills the Nu Mou off the map, since their physical attacks aren't that decent, after all, smacks with a staff isn't all that effective. There are 4 units here, a Fighter with Air Render, which is hard to counter on any day of the week, a Thief which can steal your Gil and can loot your levels, an Archer which can use Blackout, which is never good, and a Black Mage who has quite a lot of defence for a mage. Your first plan of attack is to take down the Mage. That critter can cause a lot of damage to your units, when bunched up together. Mages are always the first to die, then Archer. Blackout is not good for anyone on your team, so take him down. The next two, the two melees, the Fighter and the Thief, are harder to take down, but ganging up on them should do it for you. Make sure that you gang up on them, one on one isn't a good way to win. Another problem with the map are the traps. You probably don't have Libra as a clan privilege, but it doesn't matter, make sure you have a healer on your team to keep everyone healthy. This is an easier mission, play this one by the numbers, you have the advantage, they don't, so don't lose that advantage of numbers. These guys are a serious threat to society, stabbing 28 people just because some person accidently spilt some drink over a foot.

Based on the month it is in the game and the answers to your questions, you will get your prospective clan member. You can retry all over again if you aren't happy, but not that there will only be one sort of candidate per month. Note that you need to accept someone to finish the mission. You can easily fire them after they are hired, make sure you pillage their equipment. Also, you might not get access to some clan members because you don't have access to a certain job class. To make sure you have all available clan mates, make sure you have all your classes unlocked, well as much as possible. Thanks to Antitype, I have the list of how to get exactly the clan mate that you want. The First factor is month. Humes are recruited in Blackfrost and Skyfrost. Bangaa are recruited in Greenfire and Bloodfire. Nu-Mous are recruited in Rosefire and Coppersun. Moogles are recruited in Goldsun and Silversun. Viera are recruited in Ashleaf and Mintleaf. Seeqs and Gria (share same months) are recruited in Emberleaf and Plumfrost. The next are the questions. The answer will pretty much determine how to get each little class. Note that you need to have unlocked the classes via the appropriate quests because they are available.

There is a Soldier, who has a single Rend skill and Mug. The Thief has Steal Items and Gil, and Doublehand! But don't worry, he doesn't actually use it. The White Monk has Roundhouse and Air Render, which might be a pain. The White Mage is armed with Cure and Esuna and finally, the Black Mage is armed with the three basic ones, as well as Blizzara. You want to take out the Black Mage first, this is the most annoying unit that there is on the map. The next one is the White Monk, Air Render is kind of powerful. And now, you have 4 units left.

Law Forbidden : Harming the Weak Actions that harm a lower level unit are forbidden. You only need to take one person down, and with 6 members and one guest, that makes it easy. Wrong. You need to try to keep the law, but I couldn't. All my units were Level 30-31, so there goes the law bonus at the end. The Wyrm is an Ivory Wyrm, and he ain't here if it is that easy. You're best bet, given that the path between you and the wyrm is full of traps, and that you are at a serious height disadvantage, is to use either Gria, Magick or powerful ranged weapons such as cannons. Those are going to be the best bets that you can use to win. Syrenead is way ahead, since she is higher up, closer to the wyrm and has Leap, which means she can power ahead. However, she has no Green Mage attacks, so she is going to go melee. You need to make sure that she doesn't die. Run ahead or range the Wyrm to death before it can do too much damage. Don't worry about the law, odds are, the level is about 23-25 so the odds that you will be able to obey the law is pretty low or high depending on your level. --==Mission B3-04 ~ On the Rampage==-- "There's a monster on a nearby hill and, well, it's completely out of control!

Law Forbidden : > 100 Damage Dealing > 100 Damage is Forbidden You are basically fighting a bigger version of Klesta. You need to be him before you can fight his mother. And the law is simply absurd. That fat bird has more than 800 HP, and dealing less than that will take a lot of time and makes it hard for you own units. The Mamatrice is going to deal a good deal of damage if you move too close to them, so Hunters with Sidewinder and magick will be the best ability to use on the enemy. Remember how you hate Klesta? Well his mama is the same, they both run away then they are beaten. --==Mission B3-06 ~ A Lady's Persistance==-- "Father didn't believe I defeated a wyrm in my first battle.

Law Forbidden : Harming the Weak Actions that harm a lower level unit are forbidden. Another mission with the Ivory Wyrm. Again, all you need to do is to make sure that you bring some healers and best of all, a Hunter. Sidewinder is going to do a world of good here. Your mission here is not to kill the enemy. You want the Wyrm on HP Critical to complete the mission. To make sure that you don't get an accidential critical hit, use abilities because their chance of a critical is pretty much zero. You need Hunters, and a White Mage, because not only are you fighting an uphill battle, there are traps all over the place, and you don't want them. Don't worry about the law, the Level of the Wyrm is about 33-35 so if you overlevel it, there is nothing you can do. --==Mission B3-08 ~ Unfamiliar Folk==-- "I saw some unfamiliar folk in the Ruins of Delgantua.

Law Forbidden : Actions by Humes Humes may only move and perform basic attacks. Well, there goes the Humes out of your party. Anyway, you are going to fight a party of 6, a Moogle with Sheep Count, which basically means sleep and Catnip, which means berserk. Archer with Blackout, which is Blind, and 2 Fencer moves, Swarmstrike, which is poison and Shadowstick, which lowers your speed. Black Mage will have Blizzard and Blizzara attacks, which can be rather painful, Warrior will have plenty of rend powers, which certainly isn't really good for you. The Soldier will be more Paladin than anything but he has counter, and the Hume Archer will have weak powers. You want to take down the ranged units first, they have the debuffs and take down the others as they come close to you. The Warrior will have some debuffs, and the Soldier has some attack, but the Viera Archer is the one you want to take down first. Also, bring a White Mage to take down the enemy debuffs, Esuna is the key. --==Mission B3-09 ~ A Lady's Insistance==-- "The wyrm I keep at our home is well behaved and docile, but a group of our neighbours have voiced complaint.

Law Forbidden : Attack Attacking is Forbidden. Well, the law doesn't really mean all attacks, just normal attacks, abilities do not really count so you can use your unit's abilities to kill the wyrm. Your mission is to make the Wyrm on the HP Critical state without having the Wyrm kill its owner. Thats the whole point of the mission. Don't worry, the Wyrm won't actually move from its starting position, so you can easily long range the little Wyrm to death. Get it into the HP Critical state and that will finish the mission. --==Mission B3-11 ~ Duelhorn==-- "There's a forest not too far from where I live and at night I see, well, shapes flitting through the trees ... or something.

Law Forbidden : Restoring MP Actions that restore MP are forbidden. Well, this is an interesting assortment of characters that you need to beat the living daylights of. There is a Gria Hunter with Sneak Attack, what is that, well, you don't want to know. There is a Moogle Thief which is armed with some Mog Knight skills, in particular, Moogle Lance. White Mage has some healing powers, and Magick Hammer from Blue Mage for some reason. The Bangaa Warrior has your basic Warrior skills such as Body Slam and Bangaa Cry. The Time Mage is armed with Haste, Aero and Water, and finally, the fencer is armed with the usual in addition to Cupid from the Archer's kit. Ok, take down the Gria and Time Mage first. Gria because Sneak Attack from the back is really nasty, and you don't want that, and the Time Mage because fast enemy units isn't really a good thing. Next, the Thief, because Moogle Lancer isn't too nice to take for no reason either. Well, you have the Fencer to take care of, Cupid isn't a nice debuff on your troops any day of the week. Finally, the White Mage and the Warrior, the order in which they fall isn't really important. Easy battle, go for the strongest, weaken with ranged attacks, melee units mop up the rest. --==Mission B3-13 ~ Wanted: Barmaid==-- "To assist with the Great Land Festival in Camoa, we are currently on the look out for attractive barmaids.

Law Forbidden : Harming the Opposite Sex Actions that harm members of the opposite sex are forbidden. Given the law that you face here, you need to have a fair amount of female members. You are facing a Trickster, a Summoner, a Ninja and an Arcanist. The MALE Ninja isn't all that powerful, armed only with Magick Frenzy from the Seer class, which is of note. The FEMALE Summoner here is armed with Shiva, Kirin and Maduin and can counter magick. The Trickster has Charisma and Traumatize as well as Lancet. Note that besides the look, the Trickster is male. And finally, the Arcanist. He is armed with Death, Scathe and Gigaflare. You need Adelle, Vieras and Hunters here. 2 Strong male units, and 4 females will be needed to have a nice balance. You can replace one of the males with a female, but guess what, there is a simple way to finish this, break the law. All you actually need to do is that you need to take down one single unit first. Aim for the Arcanist or the Ninja, and fully taken them down and that will actually end the mission. The reason because it is obvious that the enemy units are highly leveled in comparsion with the Rank. You can easily bring in all females and take down a single male unit, preferably the Arcanist since he is the closest. As a little spoiler, if you have been following the previous quests in the Duelhorn, you can guess who those four units are, remember what the previous advance team said about four leaders who were going to take over.

Law Forbidden : Reaction Abilities Reaction Abilities are forbidden You have two wolves here as well as two Baknamy, or Goblins. You need to stop the enemy from crossing the bridges here, so you need two sets of units. You need two meat tanks, two high HP units capable of taking and giving damage out, and long range support units, such as mages and archers. The point is, you need to protect the land on your side. They can go on the bridge, but not step on the land where your forces are. And after you kill the enemy, they keep on coming, so defeating all foes isn't exactly the easiest solution. Kill them, and more wolves will show up. This is great for a few reasons. First, more experience, and the most important, LOOT. This is great for more loot for you, and they are on a low enough level to make this a easy mission. And at the end of the mission, something imporant has been unlocked for you.

Dancers are also up to debate, but stick with the Juggler. --==Mission B4-02 ~ Strong Lady==-- "That old man dressed up as a lady was fighting, ohm and he was strong. Real strong!

Law Forbidden : Harming the Weak Actions that harm a lower level unit are forbidden. Man, this law sucks, just because my units are a bit above their levels, I get a broken law. Not fair. Anyway, you are facing 6 Bangaa units, but this is a defeat mark mission, so you just want the Night Dancer, who is a Trickster, which is a cross-dressing Bangaa who has an identity crisis. The White Monks aren't too much of a worry. Armed with Earth Render, Snigger and Hypochondria, their main weapon is a shield, which means no normal attacks. Templar isn't armed with any powerful attacking ability and a Gladiator who is actally quite decent. The Night Dancer has Traumatize and Charisma, as well as Lancet. Well, the White Monks aren't going to let you pass, so show them why they should, blow them up. Anyone that wants to cross the bridge, blow them up with firepower. Then, attack the Night Dancer to finish this. Also, if you want to follow the law yet you overpower the enemy, then you need to use your reaction abilities to hit them hard. That way, they shouldn't trigger the law and you get your law bonus. If you overlevel it and actually want to finish this mission, break the law and blow them up. Kablamo. The Night Dancer really does have an identity crisis, and is pretty damn naive. --==Mission B4-03 ~ I Want to Forget==-- "I love someone whom I can never have. The very thought haunts me each moment I draw breath. It is more than I can bear. And so I wish to quit this mortal life.

This is where you learn all about what Zombie Powder actually does, and so you unlock a new area behind the hut. Here, you talk to Ezel, the guy who gave you the card earlier to prevent the judges disappearing. And how we have a problem. The Witch tells us to kill the Zombies for the Zombie powder, but now Ezel says to kill the Dreamhares for a Draught that basically wipes the memories of a person. Anyway, lets start this battle now. Your Mission Objective : Fulfill the obligations of your quest! Law Forbidden : Using > or = 20 MP Actions that consume 20 or more HP are forbidden. So, what do you want to do? Get the powder that effectively makes a person a rotting, animinated corpse or the draught that will make the petitioner forget all about their loved one? This is a problem. Get the ingredients for the item that you would want to obtain. The Zombies and the Dreamhares are quite powerful for the rank, leveling at about 38 so you might want to play with weaknesses. Holy for the Zombies and Fire for the Dreamhares. If you kill both, you get to Zombie Powder instead. This quest is important because it unlocked a new area in Tramdine Fens and unlocks quest such as the Storage Shed and Teach a Man to Fish. --==Mission B4-04 ~ The Goug Consortium==-- "Kupo!

Law Forbidden : Targeting All Units Actions targeting all units at once are forbidden Your aim here is to kill the 6 Fusiliers here, or Gunners they were used to be call. The problem is, they have guns, they are fast, and they are high up, making them early impossible to kill using the melee approach. You are going to need mages, attackers and healers. The problem is that the Gunners have guns that deal different shots to you. You want to take down the Gunner on the top left, who has Blindshot, which makes your life a lot more miserable, Charmshot, which really stuffs up your troops, helping the enemy and all, and the various elemental shots that can seriously irk you. The Silenceshot will be annoying to your mages, but no one else. Never the less, the problem with Guns is that they have a VERY LONG RANGE that you cannot hope to match with your weapons. Your Mages are going to be instrumental in the defeat of the enemy. They have decent range, while archers are going to be useful to knock down their eyesight. Templars are White Monks are important as well. Their Air Render, extremely accurate and deals massives amounts of damage in this situation, while Jump will literally ignore height differences, at the cost of accuracy. Killing all 6 of them involves you ganging up on one Moogle at one, to make sure they stay down, while surviving the onslaught from the enemy firearms. Phoenix Downs are going to be important here, as well as Cure. Make sure the enemy with Silenceshot, Charmshot and Blindshot go down first, the elemental shots, Fire, Ice and Bolt are easily, since they don't give debuffs, just elemental damage. At the end of this painful mission, you get the Fusilier skill set for the Moggle unlocked, and that means, you get to play around with guns, shooting everyone from a VERY LONG RANGE. --==Mission B4-05 ~ Wanted: Sidekick==-- "By the archmage Lezaford and all those great men and women who followed him into the annals of history was our world shaped.

Law Forbidden : Opportunity Commands Opportunity Commands are forbidden. You are going to fight a fair amount of units and this is a protect mission. There is a Thief with Steal Items, Steal Gil and Leg Shot. Another Thief with Steal Gil and Loot Level 4, also with Molotov Cocktail and Dagger Toss. Alchemist is armed with Flare and Poison, White Mage with Cure, Cura and Esuna and finally, the Viking with Thundara, War Cry and Pickpocket. The unit you are protecting is a Summoner who thinks she can hold off the enemy with Blind. Your team is going to be split up into pairs, so you need to move fast and encircle the enemy. Take down the thieves since they are going to move fast and they are probably the strongest. Then, take down the Viking, because he is quite dangerous if you let him. Then the Alchemist and then the White Mage. Your main priority is to protect the Summoner at all costs, she is the most important because it is your mission objective. Protect her, heal her if it is necessary, and repel the enemy. Another Chapter in the Duelhorn saga is done. --==Mission B4-07 ~ Under the Weather==-- "I'm... not feeling well of late.

Law Forbidden : Summoning Scions Summoning Scions is forbidden. Well, there goes the easy way to finish any mission, but you are going to face 3 Parivir, 2 Ninjas and an Assassin in this mission. Now, they aren't that easy to take down, but they aren't too hard either. First, take down the Assassin if you can. It has some time magick up its sleeve, which might make fighting that much harder. Your second choice should be the Ninja with the Veil powers. Those two are the ones you want to take down first. The last 4, the remaining ninja with Throw, and the 3 Parivirs aren't going to be much of a threat. Iai Blow might have a small chance of a 1 hit KO, but other than that, they can wait. This is a relatively easy mission if you know what to do. And if you thought that the loot was crap, the good thing is, you get the Parivir Job as well from these guys. At least there was a point in the battle. --==Mission B4-09 ~ Wanted: Shiny Maces==-- "Ngaaa! I'm short-handed! Don't have anyone to polish up these maces! You interested?

You need to set it out like a battle, set the only available slot to the mace wielder, and start battle, which will send her off. You need to wait for 10 days, and after then 10 days are over, you get your dispatch back. You get decent money for this, and it is easy. Note that the mace wielder doesn't need any experience, just the ability to wield maces. --==Mission B4-10 ~ Aid the Serpent==-- "We've been after a certain mark for some time now, but have been foiled in our efforts to stop it.

Law Forbidden : Actions by Viera Viera may only move and perform basic attacks. It looks like we meet another of the Duelhorn Four. This time, it is everyone's favourite Arcanist, Duke Snakeheart. Well, this is going to be an interesting fight, and don't forget, this time, you only need to fight and beat him, no one else. Snakeheart is armed with Death, Scathe and Gigaflare which makes him quite dangerous. One Black Mage uses Thunder, Thundara and Thundaga as well as Pierce, the other Black Mage also has Pierce, but with Blizzard, Blizzara and Blizzaga. The Alchemist uses Flare and Poison and uses Items as well. The White Mage uses Cura, Esuna and Flare, and finally, the Beastmaster has the Shadow Shade Tome from the Scholar class, his beast lore is quite useless. This is another all Magick team, but guess what, their Defence is pretty much useless so you need to move in some fast melee hitters that can do some damage, and have some Resistance. Ranged units such as Fusiliers are essential here, Stopshot, Silenceshot are useful to make sure the enemy cannot attack any more. Haste on your team cannot hurt, but if you don't want a massive headache, just go after Snakeheart and take the fool down. This is the lastest installment of the Duelhorn invasion. --==Mission B4-11 ~ A Chill in the Night==-- "Night after night monsters plague the lands surrounding our homes.

Law Forbidden : Actions by Gria Gria may only move and perform basic attacks. You are only allowed three units to play around with, so you might as well choose your two best fighters, it really doesn't matter that skill they use, magick, physical, range, it really doesn't matter. The last, and third unit should be a White Mage. Your Red Made, the one that you are protecting is quite powerful. She is armed with doublecast, which means she can cast two spells at the same time. She is also armed with the three basic attacks. You are going to be facing a variety of Viera, their jobs don't seem to be changing all that often. Luckily, the enemy only has their ability set, no secondary, reaction or passive abilities. That makes this fight that much easier. The enemy you see first are going to be 1 Fencer, with Swarmstrike of note. The enemy Assassin has silence and slow. The enemy Green Mage has silence. That are your starter courses. The problem in this mission is that the enemy is rather fast. Viera have very high speeds, meaning that their turns are relatively quick and you don't have a counter if you don't fight quickly. Soon, a White Mage would warp in. This is important to take this unit down because the enemy White Mage means that they can be healed. Soon, a Red Mage will join the party. She isn't all that important because all she has it the three basic magick skills. A Fencer will join in as well, but armed with the basic abilities. Snipers, Archers, basically every basic Viera class will join the party. Make sure that you protect Hana and keep her alive. The 10th unit you will see is the Spellblade, the class you want to obtain. Armed with Poison, Confusion and Sleep Blade attacks, they is quite a threat, but you are better off taking down the units that are going to attack next. I hope you brought some healing units, because you definitely need them. Did I mention that at the end of this you get the Spellblade job? --==Mission B4-13 ~ Wanted: Artillery==-- "We seek someone to supplement our ranks for a short time and aid us in our fight against a powerful foe.

Law Forbidden : Non-Elemental Effects Use of non-elemental weapons and abilities is forbidden. What, protect that guy, ah man, this Duelhorn thing is starting to drive me nuts, first they are good guys, then bad, then good, then neutral and then they turn out to be space invading aliens. Anyway, you face one of the Dukes, the Ninja who has Earth Veil, Oblivion, Magick Frenzy and Blink Counter. The Night Dancer has Charisma, Traumatize, Lancet and Ribbon Bearer. Those are the two dukes, and they are joined by a Seer with Esuna, Sandstorm and Expose Weakness, and finally, a Master Monk with Withering Strike, Body Slam, Greased Lightning and Counter. The main target here is the Ninja, all you need to do is to defeat the Ninja to win this mission, because he apparently represents all foes. He problem with him is the high evasion but if you use all six of your units against him, it shouldn't be a problem. That is the latest in the Duelhorn saga, stay tuned for the next episode. Looks like a criminal war is about to start. --==Mission B4-15 ~ Show of Strength==-- "Help! My chocobo corral's been taken over by a ruffian calling himself the Swordking and his band of cohorts!

Law Forbidden : Targeting an Area Actions targeting two or more tiles are forbidden. Well, pretty much all magicks are now forbidden, so that is a little problem, but you can deal with it. And is this a fair fight or what? Oh man, this is another quest to deal with Frimelda, so thse guys are such a bunch of stupid elitists. We'll see about that. And so they fight dirty. The Swordking, a Viking, is armed with Thundara, Tsunami and Pickpocket. The Defender uses Defend and Bulwark and the Templar uses Silence and Haste. What a seriously pathetic bunch. Ghi, the one we are protecting, is a Parivir with Shimmering, Skyfurt and Hoarfrost Blade. And don't worry, he will recover on the first turn so this is going to be easy, 7 against 3, superiority in terms of numbers, blades and tactics. Target the "Swordking" first. He is the easiest to take down. And teach him that Luso isn't a kid. Then the Defender and finally, the Templar. This is such an easy fight. --==Mission B4-16 ~ Lord Grayrl!==-- "You be wanting that rare gem of gems, the noble pearl, eh?

Law Forbidden : Not Moving 3 Tiles Each unit must move exactly 3 tiles before ending its turn. This is another stupid law, I'm getting a fair few of these lately. Anyway, you need to move three tiles every turn or else you break the law. You are facing several units here, and it surely doesn't help that you start in the middle of the map, where you are basically surrounded. Unlike the Jedi, you aren't in the middle facing millions of droids, you are only facing few enemy units. The two Vikings have Thunder or Thundara with Pickpocket. Not bad, but the Thunder might be a problem. The Juggler has Weapon Toss, Ring Toss, Dagger Toss and something that isn't a toss, Molotov Cocktail, though you still toss it. The Thief can steal Items and Gil, and Cuisine. Finally, the big man himself, Grayrl, which Thundaga, Strong-arm and Pillage. That is quite a skill set he has there. You want to take down the Juggler first, those skills are extremely dangerous and you certainly don't want to face this. Ring Toss and Dagger Toss are quite annoying and downright dangerous. He is the single threat in the enemy team. The next is actually the thief. Cuisine is one of the best healers, so make sure that he doesn't get a chance to use it. Remember, the aim of the mission is to take down Grayrl, so if you want, just rush and target him with long range units to take him down. After the battle, you get the extra bonus of the Viking Job as well. ************** **SECTION B5** ************** --==Mission B5-01 ~ Wanted: Woodcutter==-- "The Lord of Camoa has decreed that several trees be cut from nearby woods.

The Soldier uses all three Rends, Power, Magick and Speed, as well as Counter. The Master Monk uses Fark Fist, Lifebane and CrossCounter as well as Blink Counter. The Black Mage uses Fira, Thundara, Blizzara, Thundaga and Magick Counter. The Tinker uses Green Gear, Silver Disc and Gold Moogletron and finally, the White Mage uses Cura, Curaga and Refresh. Your enemy here is quite obvious, who else will suspect your clan with Duelhorn. Anyway, use your top group to take down the enemy Tinker, he is the most dangerous unit on the map, while your forces on the bottom take out the Black Mage and the Master Monk. After the tinker is down, use your top group to flank behind the enemy units here and attack from the side and back, while your bottom group holds the fort and defends against the enemy. Take all the enemy units down and complete the mission. The next mission in the Duelhorn saga isn't all that nice. --==Mission B5-03 ~ Hunted==-- "A fiend hunts me.

Law Forbidden : Ranged Weapons Attack with bows, greatbows, guns, hand-cannons, and cards are forbidden. I hate love plots that go sour. Here, where it is even more complicated, you are meant to help Sir Luc Sardarc attack the undead, but when the undead turns out to be Frimelda, it gets even more complex. Apparently, envy of skill kills Frimelda, making her undead, and you need to beat him. You actually need to kill him, you aren't going to injure him. He uses Saint Cross, Holy Blade and War Cry, as well as Blink Counter and Destroyer. And for this battle, you don't get to choose who you bring into battle, you need to bring Luso, Adelle and Cid. Just make sure that they don't have any ranged weapons. The problem here is protect Frimelda, so bring one of the users that you have Dark Magick. You need to beat this guy, but just overlevel him and you'll be fine. He might be strong, but it is three against one, so it isn't going to be hard to lose this mission. Surround him, beat him, and if you can, spare a unit to gather the urn. You get the Fallen Angel after this battle. Too bad I already have one. You also get the High Seraph's Plume, another summoning item. --==Mission B5-04 ~ Geomancer's Way - Snow==-- "Geomancers bend nature to their will.

Law Forbidden : Actions that consume 20 or more MP are forbidden. Well, there are 3 Geomancer's here, with an Ice Drake and a Zahak to top things off. They aren't all that hard, but the Geomancers do get their little extra ability here, the Avanlanche that will be rather painful, so you really do want to take them out rather quickly. Take down the Zahak first, he is weak to Holy so you can use a Paladin to knock him off his high horse. The Ice Drake is there only as a distraction, so it shouldn't be too hard to take him down. The hard part are the Geomancers. You need to rush pass the others and you need to take them all out. Melee units will have it easy here. If you could do the last two, this shouldn't be too big a problem. --==Mission B5-05 ~ Wanted: Assistant==-- "I need an assistant to assist me in the laboratory with my research, kupo.

Lets start at Camoa Battle of Camoa Your Mission Objective : Defeat the Night Dancer! Law Forbidden : Harming the Opposite Sex Actions that harm members of the opposite sex are forbidden. Well, in Camoa, you are facing an all Bangaa group, so with the law there, you might want to use only Bangaa, Humes, Moogles, Seeq and Nu Mous. Not a bad selection to choose from there. Anyway, you face the Night Dancer, that female looking Trickster, a Cannoneer, a Bishop, a Master Monk, a Dragoon and a Defender. Not a bad lineup. If you are going for the defeat all enemies idea, you want to target and take down the Cannoneer first. He has exceptionally long range. The Master Monk should be next, since he does have some powerful abilities to play with, and that makes him dangerous. The rest you can take down yourself, they aren't all that hard. Careful, they have A LOT OF DEBUFFS. However, the reason you want to finish this fast is the Trickster himself. His card throws are quite powerful and have the range of a cannon. The best counter would be to send in extremely high movement units, such as Ninjas, and while they go in, use your own ranged units, Fusiliers, Cannoneers and Tricksters, to cover the Ninjas and stopshot the other enemies, to give your melee units a chance to engage the Trickster and defeat him. After you defeat him, you need to move on to the next battle. Since Graszton is closer, we shall head there. Battle of Graszton Your Mission Objective : Defeat Duke Snakeheart! Law Forbidden : Targeting Self Actions targeting user are forbidden. This is an annoying battle, since you need two healers to ensure that you get healed here. You fight Duke Snakeheart, the Arcanist, as well as a Time Mage, an Illusionist, a Black Mage, a Sage and a White Mage. You really need some heavy hitters here, and fast ones too. The Black Mage and the Sage really need to go, whatever you do, if you aren't going to take down Snakeheart straight away, the Sage and the Black Mage, and maybe the Time Mage have to go first. The Illusionist isn't really a big threat until you give him a long period of time. He needs 4 turns normally, but he does have Blood Price, so that really puts a target on his head. Again, you want to finish this fast. There are a lot of magick spells that are going to be casted so some high resistance users are good here to lead the charge against Snakeheart. Once you take care of him, you will take down another lord of Duelhorn and that will leave one more to go, the one in Moorabella. Battle of Moorabella Your Mission Objective : Defeat Alys the Ensorceled! Law Forbidden : Actions by Viera Viera may only move and perform basic attacks. In Moorabella, you are going to be fighting Viera here, and you can't use their own kind in kind I guess. Anyway, you are fighting Alys, the Summoner, an Assassin, an Elementalist, a Sniper, a Spellblade and a White Mage as well. And they have the high ground, which isn't a good thing at all. The Sniper and the Assassin are probably the biggest threats that you will have to face, they will hit from range, and the Elementalist won't really help either. Those three are their ranged units, so make sure that you get rid of them, fast. And damn, Penalo is technically a Viera. This is one where you don't have to worry about the boss trying to beat the crap out of you. Alys here will not be able to move at the start, nor cast spells, since she is so Great, but she isn't. Don't get near her in massive groups, her summons are quite deadly. Finish this off, and that should be the end of this very long mission. --==Mission B5-07 ~ Memories Forged==-- "To Clan Gully: A great master of the sword lies upon death's door.

NAZAN FIRST! Your Mission Objective : Investigate the Shining Object! Law Forbidden : Back Attack Attacking a unit from behind is forbidden. The reason you need to head to Nazan is because you need to recover a nice shiny item there that seems to be part of your quest. There is no one here to talk to you, but you need to recover that item, regardless of those Floating Eyes and the wolves that will try to stop you. You might to defeat the Floating Eyes and Wolves so you can get to the item unhindered, and by the time you can access this mission, you are going to be quite powerful anyway, so take them on for an easy mission. Alternatively, you can bring in a unit with High Movement and High Jump stats and recover the item quickly to finish this mission. Don't think that it means the mission is done, you now need to go to Kthili Sands because this is a delivery mission. Kthili Sands Your Mission Objective : Protect Frimelda and Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Back Attack Attacking a unit from behind is forbidden. This is a protect mission, and you need to protect a Zombie, so the odds are, you need a Dark Magick user to protect Frimelda because those 4 Ghouls that surround her aren't going to be too friendly. You want to rush quickly, bringing units that can fight undead and the ability to make sure that their graves don't remain. The problem is that the other undead units will often outmove Frimelda, so by the time you reach the location where Frimelda is, she would have taken a bucketload of damage. The Ghouls aren't all that hard, there are only four of them and there are 7 of you to fight, since Luc is still there, but you need to bring in some nice Holy users to make sure that the enemy stays down. I HATE YOU FRIMELDA. She gets attacked by two zombies, placing her in a HP Critical Status. And what does she do, attack the zombie when it has counter. Stupid AI. At the end of the battle, well, Frimelda will be all back to normal and you get to use her in your Clan, you can't reject her, and she comes in as the Paladin class. --==Mission B5-08 ~ Geomancer's Way - Mist==-- "Geomancers bend nature to their will.

Law Forbidden : HP < or = 100 Having less than 100 HP is forbidden. Well, again, you face the same three geomancers, as well as a Toughskin and a Lamashtu. This is a battle that you want to use magick, because you are fighting a battle there the enemy has the advantage of having the high ground, and we all know that that isn't a good thing. Take out the Lamashtu where you are, her debuffs can get very annoying and will waste a fair amount of time. The Toughskin is next, although if you have bladed weapon users, you might want to take him out first since it will use Resonate, which will force you to find someone to use Esuna to get rid of it. The Geomancers will have the ability to use the Mist, so you want to move fast on this mission, you don't have a lot of time if you want to win with the majority of your troops intact. Just move fast, bring in a White Mage as a backup just in case you suffer some debuffs. This isn't such a hard mission. After this torture, where you have to suffer 4 missions, you will finally finish the quest to be a Geomancer, and about time. Who invented this trial system anyway? --==Mission B5-10 ~ The Last Duelhorn==-- "Clan Gully, Please, stop Maquis. He's taken it upon himself to do everything alone.

Law Forbidden : Ranged Weapons Atacks with bows, greatbows, guns, hand-cannons, and cards are forbidden. This is going to be one the of the hardest missions that you are going to fight. He has Double Wield, and that lets him deal double damage per normal attack, which makes him dangerous. He also have a variety of veils that will debuff you over the course of the battle. And you need to defeat him. But when the battle starts, he splits himself into 6. That means you need to defeat all of them. You can't tell which one is real, they are all real. He will generally go first, so you need to be able to take some damage here. Note that he will about at about level 56, so you might want to overlevel him to ensure a complete victory. What you want are extremely powerful units. I suggest an Illusionist with the ability to use Halve MP, and MP efficiency which will allow him to cast a target all spell every turn, which is extremely useful to your team. Another method is to tank up and get some really powerful melee units to dish out some more damage. The problem is, they move extremely fast, they have high movement, so you want to take them out, and fast because they swarm you. I suggest that you take advantage of back attacks, because you want to take them out. Take them out one at a time, that would make it a lot easier than a free for all. He also has high evasion and Blink Counter. It seriously doesn't get any harder for now. Note that each of the Ninjas will have different abilities. There is one who can use the Illusionist skill set, be VERY CAREFUL around this one, you want to take him out quickly. Another has Dual Wield, one has high Evasion, they are so damn powerful. You really want to make the most of your turns here. Illusionists, as long as they survive, will damage everyone, which is always good. This battle is hard. I had a team on their Level 56ish. I ended up winning with only two units remaining, I normally have all my units alive. Note this is hard mode. However, I forgot to bring a White Mage. Make sure that you bring one, Arise is a very useful move here. Provided the mage survives. --==Mission B5-11 ~ The Way of the Sword==-- "To Clan Gully: I would fight the blademaster returned from death's threshold. One on One.

Law Forbidden : < 20 Damage Dealing < 20 Damage is forbidden. You can only use Frimelda in this battle, so before you start this battle, I hope that you either make sure Frimelda can heal herself from debuffs and heal her HP generally. You fight Ghi, the Parivir when you were fighting the Swordking, that fat Viking of a Seeq. Ghi uses Shimmering Blade, Skyfury Blade, Hoarfrost Blade and Bonecrusher. He has a lot of attack and a fair amount of defence, but is lacking in the Resistance department, so Magick maybe? You need to beat him quick, a fast array if back attacks will really help, and maybe some luck boosting items that give more Criticals will be handy since that Frimelda does come with Dual Wield. Be careful, that Ghi will back attack you. I was lucky with a Opportunity Command, so 4 blades in the back. The problem is that Ghi will be able to dish out a lot of damage here, so the need to cure yourself is more than important. This is probably going to be a test of sheer firepower, so the person who can dish out the most damage here can win. Just get some lucky criticals and that should mean victory. At the end of this battle, you will learn a lot more on why you were able to find that medicine that you did. --==Mission B5-14 ~ Lethean Drought==-- "I must slay a certain monster for the reagents of a potion I require, and seek allies to join me on the hunt.

WHAT! You need protection from that? Well, anyway, protect the man with your forces and use your hunters to hunt and kill the bunnies before they piss you off with their damn charm abilities, because I hate them.

You need to take down 3 Dreamhares for a potion that is desperately needed, and you need to get it. I mean, how hard can it be to dispatch three rabbits with a group of hunters armed with the Sidewinder ability? It isn't very hard.

This is a Duelhorn Civil War. Anyway, you need to target Snakeheart and him only, since he is your mark, and the bad guy in this situation. He still is an Arcanist, and he has his cronies to support him. A Defender, Seer, Flintlock, Scholar and a Parivir support him, so if you want to target him, you need to get there fast. Snakeheart is quite powerful, so you want to rush him and take him down before he has a chance to take you down. The fact that there are traps all over the place doesn't help, having something like Awareness really shines here, get the enemy to stand on those traps. You should avoid that Death attack Snakeheart has, so you would need a healer should a unit fall. If you want to take down the enemy without losing all your troops, I suggest that you take down the cronies, it is a far safer alternative than losing all your troops. Still, Snakeheart is too damn powerful, so you need some healers as well. ************** **SECTION C1** ************** --==Mission C1-01 ~ It's a Secret to Everybody==-- "My pet shelling, Titoise, has run away, kupo, and I need someone to find him for me!

Law Forbidden : Ice Weapons and abilities that use ice are forbidden. Wow, a rare white Chocobo. This is nice place for a Chocobo Knight, there is a Red and White Chocobo here to play around with and a nice place to capture them. All you need to do is to HP Critical them and mount them. Also, the aim of the game is to weaken the mark to HP Critical status. The Red Chocobo has Choco Beak and Choco Meteor, and the White Chocobo has Choco Cure and Choco Recharge. The other turtles have Limit Glove, Headbutt and Sonic Spin. The Mark here is armed with Headbutt, Sonic Spin and Munch. Okay, first of all, take down the other targets, starting with the turtles since they can pack the damage with their slow as moves. Then, the Chocobos because you really want to make sure that you get Titoise last. To win the mission, Titoise must be on HP Critical and not dead. Therefore, when you pay with your attacks, use the rule that since attacks hardly do the damage that they are supposed to, don't use Sidewinder except for the first move, and expect a deviation from the listed mark of 20%. Don't rely on a underhit, always expect you doing more damage, when you don't need to. --==Mission C1-02 ~ Hellhound Astray==-- "I was cleaning out Helda's pen - one of our hellhounds - and when I finished she was gone!

Law Forbidden : Bludgeoning Weapons Attacks with rods, staves, poles, knucles, hammers, and maces are forbidden. There are three Worgens and three Hellhounds, and your target is a Hellhound, but guess what, Hellhounds are normally purple and your target is a nice snow shade of white. The Worgens need to be taken out first, they have the ability to make sure units Immobolized, which isn't really nice. They are in front of you and you do need to defeat all foes, so take them down. Careful, there are damn traps all over the place, the Silence type. Again, you need to take down the enemy Hellhounds before you can target Helda, but the good thing is, weaken means that you need to make sure it is on HP Critical. Do not kill the unit, so deal less damage when it nears that quarter of full HP mark since that is the HP Critical point.

Law Forbidden : < 20 Damage Dealing < 20 Damage is forbidden. There are 2 Great Malboros, 2 Chocobos, one Red, another Brown, and a Tonberry, and not forget your Mark, a Cassie, a stinking, ugly Malboro. Seeing the monsters that you need to deal with here, best bring some Wind and Thunder magick users or, even better, Hunters. You really want to take down the Tonberry really fast. That guy will certainly stalk one of your units and makes sure that its gets Karma, 999 damage without the ability to miss. Not nice. This is a mission where you want to ignore everyone else and concentrate on the mark, because the amount of debuffs it can inflict on your team is quite annoying, plus the fact that it can heal and grant REGEN to its team. As well as Hunters, bring in someone who can see Traps, because there are a fair amount of these traps around, and they are the nasty type, they are the Love Potion traps, the Charm traps. Bring Vaan, if you have him, for some free stuff. Otherwise, concentrate and defeat Carrot. Seriously, what kind of crap name is carrot? --==Mission C1-04 ~ An Earnest Multitde==-- "I seek the love of my life! My search has led me through city streets and far abroad.

Read the mission description carefully, it is blue, well, both of them are, round, again, both of them, feathers, both, but long tail. Only one unit has that, and that is the Floating Eye. We need 4 floating eyes for this mission to be a success. The skill sets are the usuaol, but take down as many floating eyes, and get more to spawn. You need 4 Floating Eyes, but you can kill as many Ahrimans as you want to make more of the Floating Eyes spawn.

This is a simple mission, what hides inside a treasure chest and has some fingers? I know, a Mimic. Anyway, there is a battlefield full of treasure chests protected by a Zahak, who will come back eventually if you decide to kill it off. What you need to do is to go around the open all the treasure chests, which is simple enough, and defeat 2, and only two mimics. You can open all the chests and don't kill more than two, that will maximise your loot, which isn't all that valuable to be brutally honest. Anyway, take down the two mimics as requested, and then take to the little padiwan and finish this mission. That was easy. --==Mission C1-07 ~ An Earnest Quandary==-- "I seek the love of my life!

Well, that means that you don't get to use any healing spells on yourself since the law forbids you from doing so. And man, is that an ugly plant or what, seriously, what kind of ... thing is this? This Rafflesia is going to be a pain to bring down. This plant is packing over 1000 HP, which is why the number is going to appear as ??? at first, there isn't any possible way to represent a 4 digit number as a three digit number. It actually has about 1200 health to play around with, but given that Sidewinder and Fire does 100 a pop, this won't take long. The best way to approach this battle is that you do not approach it, by surrounding it, it will damage you and will give you all sort of debuffs. Since it is weak to fire, you are going to use fire magicks to blow it up, and use hunters to Sidewinder it from a distance. That is the magic word in this battle, distance. The surrounding units means that anything within 2 tiles of the Rafflesia gets hit. This is a speed battle, so whoever lands the killing blow will win the battle. Hinder the enemy if you really need to make sure that you get the killing blow, or heal the plant if you really need to. --==Mission C1-10 ~ Yellow Wings in Trouble==-- "We're at the mercy of some pretty bad customers ...

Law Forbidden : Harming the Weak Actions that harm a lower level unit are forbidden. Here, you need to protect the Yellow Wings, you need to make sure that no one dies, because if someone does die, then you lose the mission, plain and simple. Harming the weak is that you don't harm the Yellow Wings but not Bowen. House Bowen is your enemy by the way. Anyway, they are about level 54-56 if you want a pointer. There is a fighter, an illusionist, an assassin and a ravager. You want to take out the Illusionist first and foremost. The Assassin comes for a distant second, and Bowen and Loa should be last, they are just there for ground pounding support. The Yellow Wings can hold their own for a short period of time, but you want to reinforce their position. High movement and high jump will be rather useful here to jump the waterfall. Move fast, and take them down as fast as you can. Friends or foes, if they are against you on the battlefield, they are foes. --==Mission C1-11 ~ An Earnest Search==-- "I seek the love of my life!

Law Forbidden : Knockback Actions that knock the target back are forbidden. There are a variety of foes here, and there is apparently no set pattern on how they turn up, but you are going to face a variety of Lamias, Malboros, Antlions and Hoppy Bunnies, and their evolved forms. You are best to use magick that will kill the enemy via their weaknesses or use Hunters and Sidewinder them to death, because they are your best methods of beating the enemy monsters. Take down those closest to you, and Lamias first because they will have a fair amount of debuffs. Make sure a white mage comes along to cure your team because you are literally going to be surrounded, and you make a last stand. Don't move, let the enemy come to you.

Law Forbidden : Harming the Weak Actions that harm a lower level unit are forbidden. This is a harder mission, so bring your fastest units, and some monster hunters. This is because you want to harvest as much fruit as you can in 4 turn. The starting monster is the first of your problems, there are many more to join the battle, regardless of how many you kill. You need to gather the fruit, which is done by standing next to a fruit tree, the one with red dots on it, and using the special command of gather when you are there. You need to have some monster hunters for this mission, as well as healers. You are going to be overwhelmed by enemy units, and they aren't going to bash lightly since they are going to level at you level. The average level of your clan will be the average level of the enemy monsters. That is the reason for the Hunters and the Healers. You need to wait out the 4 turns in this mission to complete it. Thank God. This was a pain to finish. Even if you gather all the fruit, you need to wait out the 4 rounds. It is possible to gather them all as well. You will get a bonus for gathering, and the more you get, the better. For all, you get some really good loot. I got a Crusader Tonic, so I assume it is random. --==Mission C1-15 ~ The Bangaa Brotherhood==-- "Mocedad's the name, leader of the Bangaa Brotherhood.

Law Forbidden : Attack Attacking is Forbidden Well, attacking might be forbidden, but something isn't. Reactions abilities are not forbidden, and your own abilities are not forbidden. Attack means normal attacks, normal melee or ranged attacks, but not abilities that you may possess. There is a Tonberry King. He is the main threat here, he is the biggest powerhouse here with his annoying abilities, and they will hurt if you don't take him out. The Baknamys and the Luchorpan by not don't really need me explaining how to take them out, they are quite easy to take out since they don't have much power to start off with. You need to destroy the traps to win this mission, the monsters are just a nice distraction. There are 4 different traps, but what you want to save till the end or have a unit to attack next are the purple traps. Those are charm traps, so you really don't want to be stepping on those without some backup. --==Mission C2-02 ~ Komodo Search==-- "There was an ... incident the other day while I was out making a delivery, and the load of potions I was meant to deliver ended up scattered along the ground.

Law Forbidden : Restoring HP Actions that restore HP are forbidden. You are facing 2 Ice Drakes, 2 Blue Flans and a Wendigo. These are powerful enemies, but guess what, they are also monsters, making the choice of your weapons very simple, Hunters and Sidewinder, as well as their magick weaknesses. You want to take down the Wendigo first because that is the strongest in terms of attack power. The Ice Drakes and the Flans are both powerful with their ice attacks. You need to prepare yourself against this, so you need to bring in some Fire and Thunder Magick. Fire is good against the Ice Flans and the Ice Drakes, but Thunder is good against the Wendigo. Your job here, however, is to grab the sparkling spark that indicates the potion and you need to get all of them to finish this mission. And make sure that little wimpy trader doesn't get killed, just ensure that as well, as simply as he is. You even get a little prize for helping out this little crybaby in this mission.

Law Forbidden : Targeting all Units Actions targeting all units are forbidden. Urban street fighting! There is a Moggle Black Mage with Blizzard and Blizzara, with Geomancy, which makes him a prime target. A Geomancer with a lot of Geomancy skills, a Time Mage with some evil time magick against you with Slow and Time, as well as a Lore skill. The Illusionist can only use Freezeblink, which effects all your units, hence target all. And the Viera archer has some rather annoying debuffs, Charm and Blind. You need to kill the Black Mage and the Illusionist first of all, they will be a serious threat. The Viera Archer and the Geomancer is next because they are the next dangerous, while the Time Mage is further back and harder to hit. The Trader is still weak, so make sure that you bring a healer to ensure that your units as well as him survive the battle. One thing you also need here is some range units to blast the enemy to the next century. Offensive Magick Units are rather pointless since the enemy has rather high resistance to fight with, so you need sheer brute force unfortunately. --==Mission C2-04 ~ Shipping Out==-- "We're up to our ears in shipping orders.

Law Forbidden : Targeting an Area Actions targeting two or more tiles are forbidden. This mission is going to be tough. No magick users are basically allowed to fight, since their attacks will violate the law. That means your ranged units are going to deal most of the damage. This guy is basically an idiot. Drinking all the extra potions for no good reason. WTF, what is this guy. I really hate him, and I'd rather kill him for it. The problem is, you are on the ground, they are above, and there are traps all over the place. You best method of action is going up, smashing the Archer and the Gunner hiding there, and swoop down, while your ground for takes the ground route. You want to defend, if possible. This is because the ground is trap laden, and it is easier to defend, well, against the 2 Warriors and the Mog Knight anyway. Don't even think about the trader actually doing anything. Just because he is a soldier, doesn't mean is has the guts to do anything, he is like Dayvis, sit around, do nothing. You are going to need a fair armount of Phoenix downs here, to save your troops and that stupid Trader with your potions. Magick being restricted here is seriously annoying. The Gunner is going to stay up there and shoot you, so shoot back with archers and your single tile abilities. The Moogle Knight has the Mog Lance, which is just like Air Render, and more dangerous. --==Mission C2-06 ~ The Forests of Loar==-- "-Annual Wayfarer's Expedition!- Visit all the below areas within 6 days and receive a stamp on your wayfarer's log to win valuable prizes.

Law Forbidden : Buffs Buffs are forbidden. Why do these laws suck? Anyway, you need to fight 4 thieves in this mission here. The biggest threat to you is going to be the head thief, the one with dual wield. The moogle thief has a ranged attack in Moogle Lance. But all four thieves can do something that you would expect from a thief, actually stealing items off you. That's the part you need to worry about. There isn't a game plan here, but you want that Moggle Thief out of the way so you can pummel them easily with your melee and ranged units. Make sure that you don't decide to make any buffs on your units, cause there is a law against that. Just defeat them as they come along, and they will slowly get to your troops. Defeat them, gang up on them easy.

Ok, there is a Ninja, Thief, Fighter, Viking, White Monk and another Thief, of the Moogle or Pom-Pom variety. They don't really have packing firepower that can wipe out your team, but it is now a fair fight. But you still have the height advantage here, so make sure that works in your favour. The biggest threat is the white monk, with his render skills and all, that is your biggest concern. The Ninja has Veils and the Viking has some Magick skills, but overall, the enemy isn't that tough. Just hope you don't get any criticals. --==Mission C2-11 ~ The Whole Truth==-- "We've exhausted our supply of materials needed to make De'vine Ribbons, and we need someone to bring in the latest harvest." -------------------------------------------------------------------- | The Whole Truth | Rank: 22 | Fee : 400 Gil | Days : 20 | |-----------------------------+--------------------------------------| | Items (Required) : | Quest Type : Battle | | -- | Reward : | | Quest : The Root of the | 3430 Gil | | Problem | Pearl Moss X 3 | | Dispatch/Recommended : | Prime Pelt X 1 | | -- | -- | | -- | | | | Dispatch Mission ? = Yes | | Talents (Required) : | Can be canceled once accepted | | Negotiation : 0 | | | Aptitude : 0 | Destination : Zedlei Forest | | Teamwork : 13 | Members : 6 | | Adaptability : 13 | Gain 44 Clan Points | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------- Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Buffs and Debuffs Buffs and Debuffs are forbidden. Holy crap, you are facing six ugly Cassies, the real ugly, girly version of the Malboro. Also, you have a tough law, no buffs or debuffs. There goes my favourite version of debuffs, DOOM! Anyway, if you have the Sidewinder power, this is the perfect time to bring it out to fire at will on the enemy. It really doesn't matter which Malboro to target, you want to take them out as they come towards you. The problem with facing these foes is that they have a different set of skills compared to normal Malboros, for instance, they have their Honeyed Breath and their Cloying Breath, which can seriously debuff your units. 2 of them should have Love Song, which basically is a healer for their own Malboros. Sindwinder and Hunters will have an easy mission here, as well as Bishops and other users of Wind attribute attacks. Charm will seriously be annoying, so bash your own troops or use Esuna to make sure they stay on your side, not on the enemy's side. Love Song serious hampers that you can do since they constantly use it, while Honeyed Breath has a 100% hit rate, which is seriously annoying, as does Cloying Breath, which pretty much slows and sleeps your units. Not cool at all. --==Mission C2-12 ~ Chita on Weapons - Adepts==-- "Ngaaa! I teach the youths one thing, they forget ten others! Teach 'em to focus, and then they can't focus on anything else.

Another speed battle, and this time, you are fighting the boss of headless units, the Golem. Too bad he doesn't look like the boulder that he is meant to look like, or even made of rock. Anyway, lets begin. The Golem is weak to wind damage, so you can easily Shining Air the little Golem down to the ground. Sidewinder can also help you here. Remember that this is a speed battle, so hinder the other team so that you are sure that you get the kill, or heal the golem to ensure that the other team cannot kill it, and only wound it, making it easier for you to finish this mission. Remember, the other team here consists of two Warriors, Chita, a Gladiator and thats it. You have them outnumbered, and if you take them on, they will have a poorer speed growth than you, so you get to move first. Remember, they are melee units, so if you have some strong tankers, you can block off the surrounding spots around the Golem. --==Mission C2-15 ~ Chita on Weapons - Novices==-- "Ngaaa!

You are facing a Deathscythe here, and he isn't all that powerful, and again, this is a speed battle. This is an easy mission of you have a unit with Item Lore. Anyway, the Deathscythe is undead, so have a user with Item Lore use a X Potion on the mark to deal 400 damage, which will pretty much kill it. This makes sure that you win and don't suffer too much. Remember, this is a speed battle, so when the mark is on HP critical, heal the mark if you think that the guests is about to kill it, or kill the Weaponers if they are getting too close to the enemy.

Law Forbidden : Knockback Actions that knock the target back are forbidden. Guess the monsters aren't glad that you are to search for a nice single flower. There are 2 Wolves, 2 Werewolves and a Worgen. They aren't really powerful at all, but they aren't meant to be underestimated. The Wolves can Immobilize your troops as well as Silence your magick users, so they might want to be taken down quickly. The Worgen can summon some allies to the fight, so if you don't want some more trouble, you can take him out. The Werewolves aren't anything special, they are really just brute force rather than debuff central. You need to fight an uphill battle, literally, as well as facing and beating random traps on the map. You might want to consider magick users because of the massive height difference and fighters to have an old fashioned melee beatdown. You need to find that flower, and it is completely random where it is, so good luck finding it. Remember, the flower, and not the enemies are the objective that you need to complete, so look for it.

It seems that the mark you are going to face is different for each player, and the setup of the other team is different as well. There is going to be 2 Baknamy regardless of the mark, and there are traps as well. If you want to win, and the enemy has the next turn whilst the mark is on low health, heal the mark to deny the enemy the chance of victory. Whilst it will not help your effort, you want to win this mission. Also, another cheap tactic to use in speed battles is when you are left with the mark and the other team, kill the units in the other team to deny them the chance of winning. If you are lucky, the other team will be too busy taking down the enemy Baknamy in this mission since they are going to be close to one. You should ignore yours and taken down the enemy mark instead. The enemy will outlevel you easily, they are leveled at 30, but this is because it is an 8 against 3 fight here, which really isn't fair. And the reward is seriously good.

Law Forbidden : Piercing Weapons Attacks with Rapiers and Spears are Forbidden. What an interesting mission. You need to make sure that those little birdies don't get sent off to Colonel Sanders, so make sure they don't die. Anyway, while you are facing 2 Hellhounds and a Beastmaster, read the Quest Box carefully. Do not follow the objective blindly, all you need to do is actually defeat the Beastmaster. The Beastmaster has Control: Wolf, so the Hellhounds are his, but the Beastmaster also has Slow and Haste. The Hellhounds have Summon Pack, Fangs, one has Chilling Blow, the other Fiery Blow. Rush in, defeat the Beastmaster and that will effectively end the mission. You might want to bring in a healer to make sure those nice tender chickens don't get the chop.

Law Forbidden : Fire Weapons and abilities that use fire are forbidden. The rounds is based on some unknown factor, probably due to the difficulty that you have set your game on. Or it could be on your level. The higher the level, the stronger the enemy. You are going to face some enemy Flan here, or a lot of Mimics on this mission. You have a problem because you have a period of turns to get to the other end of the ship since there is crap there as well. In this mission, you need to ignore all the enemy units and get the ship as clean as possible. If you have a large amount of enemy units, run like crazy. The enemy will try to kill you, but their futile attempts to kill you will be futile in a short amount of turns. To give you "more" turns, use either the Tinker and Red Springs, or use Haste on your units to ensure that you more fast.

Law Forbidden : Ranged Weapons Attacks with bows, greatbows, guns, hand-cannons, and cards are forbidden. You are going to fight 3 Chocobos, a Green, Brown and normal one, as well as two Great Tortoises and a Spirte. Again, we have plenty of monsters, but, hunters and the like are out of the equation, we aren't allowed to use ranged weapons. The first one to take out is the Spirte, it can heal their troops and make their troops faster with supportive time magick. Not nice when they keep buffing their own troops. Take her own first, Spirtes are the most annoying monster unit. Next are the Turtles, they have a lot of HP, and they can dish out a fair amount of damage in response. Finally, the Chocobos, they really can't do much. If you want, this is the perfect time to get a Chocobo Knight and mount on a free Chocobo. You are better off with magick users and your typical melee fighters. Using a different, melee class with Hunting as the secondary set isn't a bad idea, especially if it has high attack. Anyway, take the Sprite, and then the turtles, and the rest of the monsters. Then, you have plenty of time to search for the wedding ring. If you don't want to fight, you can easily just avoid all the fighting with quick units to search all the sparkles for the wedding ring and then finishing the battle. Honestly, I was expecting the Zombie of the husband to show up. Shame, I like killing Zombies. --==Mission C3-10 ~ Poachers Spotted==-- "They took her away! They took Calea away!

Law Forbidden : Harming the Weak Actions that harm a lower level unit are forbidden. Well, the odds are, you are going to be overleveling the enemy here, so what you really need to do is to reach Calea while avoiding the enemy Floating Eyes. Note that you always need Luso and Cid in this battle, you cannot remove them. There are 4 floating eyes that stand between you and your target that you need to reach. All of them have the same abilities, Supersonic Wave, Death Dive and Gnaw. Two of them will have Counter and Concentration while the other two will have Critical: Quicken and Reveal. Use a decoy to take all the damage, but the odds are, the enemy is going to be using a lot of Supersonic Waves and sometimes Gnaw. If you have the Floating Eyes blocking you, if you have a Gria, you can easily fly over the enemy and save poor Calea. The mission will end with you end your turn next to Calea. Once you finish the wait command, the game will end as one of your units examine to poor downed Calea. Or does it? A Seeq will bring in some friends, and you need to start an actual fight with them. I knew that mission was far too easy to be true. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes and keep them away from Calea! Law Forbidden : Copycat Using the same action as the preceding unit is forbidden. You use the same units as the units you used against the enemy Floating Eyes, but the health of your units will not be changed, so you should have a White Mage with you. Damn, I only brought a White Mage as backup, I am in some trouble. The Lanista has Sword of Darkness, Sword of Light and Haunting Vision, and Blink Counter. The Parivir uses Wind Slash, Iai Blow, Shimmering Blade and Strike Back. The Seer uses Cura and Esuna, Star Cross and Wild Tornado. The Master Monk has Pummel, Withering Strike, Lifebane and Cross-Counter. The Arcanist uses Gravity, Lvl. 3 Dark, Lvl. 5 Haste and Lvl. ? Shadowflare. And finally, the Assassin uses Shadowbind, Last Breath and Aphonia. You might want to take down the Assassin and the Parivir first, they are probably the most dangerous of the enemy units. Take down the Seer and the Lanista next, they might be useful to the enemy cause, and finally, take down the Arcanist and the Master Monk. You will lose if an enemy unit ends their turn near to Calea, 3 tile radius. After this torture, you finally finish the mission, for real, and that would be the end of that. Some guy called Horeme joins the fray after the battle taking that Lanista away. We learn some more on Khamja from Cid, and as a nice spoiler... *SPOILER* Carm Mercantile is a front for Khamja.

Law Forbidden : Targeting an Area Actions targeting two or more tiles are forbidden. The law is going to make life hell for your mages, so your are going to have to go melee. Lucky, there are only 5 Bangaa to worry about there, and they are on a low level, about 4 to 6, which makes them much easier. The hard part of this is that some units have the power of Air Render, and that is a pretty strong attack to be reckoned with. Make sure the Monks with Air Render are taken out first. Use the fences as a means to choke the enemy to death. Use your tank units to block the entrances, whilst your archers and support units backup your fighters. There is also an item chest here as well, but it is deep in enemy territory, and not worth risking a unit for it. They are weak, so melee them to death.

Law Forbidden : Reaction Abilities Reaction Abilities are forbidden There are several green mages that you need to take care of. The name of the enemy, Miss Midori, which means Miss Green in Japanese, will signify that little fact. There are two chests. There is one to the north east of you, and there is a pot behind the gathering circle of the green mages. This is a relatively easy mission. Only one of them has any magick, so target that one first for the obvious reason. All the rest will run up to you and slap you. This is an easy mission because the physical attacks all deal about 6 to 8 damage at most, so have fun killing baby seals. This is an important mission as well. You need this mission to unlock the Green Mage class for your viera class. --==Mission C3-15 ~ An Unseen Foe==-- "Illegal monster gambling has been going on in Graszton, right on Baron Beltorey's doorstep.

Law Forbidden : Dealing < 20 Damage Dealing < 20 Damage is forbidden. How the hell did they get a massive bird into a pub? Anyway, it doesn't really matter, PUB FIGHT! Anyway, you fight 3 units, but the reason this is hard is that you need to protect the trice's especially the Cluckatrice which only has 200+ health, and a single hit does about 100+. You are facing three enemy units here, a Viking with Thunder, Pickpocket and Strong-arm. The Soldier has Mug Gil and Provoke and finally, the Black mage has Fira, Blizzara and Thundara, but tends to bash people with his rod rather than fight. All have Critical: Berserk, and they have either a Defence, Attack or Resistance Up. The problem here is not the enemy, they are pathetic to be honest. The problem is that you need to defend the birds and the odds are, the enemy will try to kill the Cluckatrice, which is weak. This is why you need either high movement or long ranged units, such as Fusiliers to disable their attacks with Disable, Stop, Immobolize, or something along those lines. The best way to counter them, if you cannot disable them is to lure the AI to attack you rather than the units you are meant to defend. Let them back attack you, because it might hurt, but in the end, it is better than losing the mission. And as a side note, this is the end of the Carm Mercantile Saga. --==Mission C3-16 ~ Sleepless Nights==-- STORYLINE MISSION ************** **SECTION C4** ************** --==Mission C4-01 ~ Veis, Assassin==-- "I am Veis, a warrior pilgrim traveling the world and taking such widsom as she will give.

Your job here is to land the finishing blow to that king. If you can, see if you can steal that little orb off the King before you kill it. The Malboro is easy, but if you want to make sure you are first, take down the House Bowen troops because they have a chance to strike. Their units are strong, but they will help weaken them for you. Don't forget to look in that chest. The important thing is that you get the last strike at the Malboro King, and that will end the mission for the time being.

Law Forbidden : Restoring MP Actions that restore MP are forbidden. There are 3 fighters here that you need to take care of, one with Air Render, which is powerful to say the least, and 1 with Bonecrusher, which is a stronger version of Counter. With the 3 fighters, you have 1 Soldier, 1 Thief and a Bangaa Warrior to contend with. They have a decent level, and that won't be easy. There are also traps, so less movement is advisible. Let the come to you and hope they sit on some traps on the way in. They might have the high ground, but you are the defenders, and that is the easier job. Also remember that the other side don't have any healers, and you should have some on your side. They don't have magick either, making it harder for them. To win, hold the area where you start the mission and let them come to you. There are several traps that halve the health, so let the enemy step on these. This allows for your fighters to take the front, and the mages and archers at the back. Beware of grouping your units, one of the fighters have Aurablast, and that is a pretty powerful area spell. With the Chokepoint letting you win rather easily, you should win this battle and you will get the Fighter unlock. --==Mission C4-05 ~ Popocho's Chocobos==-- "Kupo!

Law Forbidden : > 50 Damage Dealing > 50 Damage is forbidden. This is a three stage battle, as you will see when you finally get to the Aldanna Range. This is going to be a long mission. The first round, you are facing two werewolves, a worgen and zaghnal, the stronger form of the Werewolf. If you plan to save that little Chocobo, you need to break the law. Or, have an ultra fast moving healer. You need to take down all the enemy units around the Chocobo. Odds are, that bird seriously is a bird brain, and rather than trying to survive, it will try to die by attack the enemy units around it. Unless you have a fair amount of debuffs to slow down the enemy, or an ultra fast healer that can run up and support the Chocobo, you need to break the law. You start right behind the Zaghnal, take him out while sending the other units to form a perimeter around the Chocobo because it that little bird dies, so does your mission. The law rewards are not going to be all that important at this point in the game, weaker weapons and some items and loot. The law is something to be obeyed to the point where you think it is practical. If you can't make the enemy stop moving or have a nice healer to protect the chocobo, breaking the law to quickly kill the enemy units is your only option. The best move is to use Hunters to hunt them down and Wind attacks. Shining Air really does shine here. Round 2 Your Mission Objective : Protect the Chocobos and Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Actions by Moogles Moogles may only move and perform basic attacks. Make sure that your Moogles sit out of this one, you don't need to break this law unnecessarily. Since there are 4 enemy units and you only have 4 units, you need to bring Magick and Ranged units because that would be the best way to do things. Again, with the enemy units you are facing, Magick User and Hunters are the best choices that you have. Each chocobo has a Wendigo and an Ice Flan attacking it. You can either split your force into two and take them on, but that could lead to insufficient attack power, or taken them all on at once with 4 units, but that leads to one chocobo uncovered. The best solution is that you have a ranged healer, probably a Cannoneer with the Potion Shell ability, to fire potions at a distance, and that would be mighty handy in this mission. Anyway, figure out a quick and effective tactic, and make it work. My suggestion is to have two ranged units in two groups of 2. Each will target the enemy Wendigo first, because the stupid Chocobo is more likely than not to attack the Wendigo, for about 40 damage, and thanks to Bonecrusher, take about 140-160 in return. The Wendigo needs to be the first to go. The Flan isn't as big a problem. It only deals about 60 damage to the Chocobo with its Blizzard attack, so it is best for the Wendigo to go down first. Their defence isn't all that great, so ranged physical attacks such as bows and melee units abilities are great here. Round 3 Your Mission Objective : Protect Popocho and his Chocobos! Law Forbidden : Actions by Humes Humes may only move and perform basic attacks. I hope you have Gria hunters, they are going to be a powerful attack force in his mission. Humes are more or less useless in this mission and you need all the attack power you can get on this mission. What you need to encounter is the Zahak, the mega Drake. Only holy attacks are powerful against it, do use Holy or normal attacks to kill it. The Ghost will need to be exorcised to ensure that it doesn't really return or have a phoenix down on the tombstone. Drakes are going to be annoying with Sleet, which has a chance to Doom your unit, and that isn't all that great. However, you have a little firepower on your side, your protected units are going to actually do something besides trying to commit suicide. Take down the Ghost first, and exorcise it before it has the chance to summon some more friends into battle. Then the drakes, which have doom, and finally the Demon Drake himself. When them down, the mission is over. Popocho is so happy that you get the Chocobo Knight job for all your Moogles. All you need to do is to find a HP Critical Chocobo and mount it with the Chocobo Knight. But more on that later. --==Mission C4-06 ~ Of Kupos and Cannons==-- "Strange noises punctuate the night. There's naught but trees and the occasional abandoned well for many leagues, yet the din of "kupo"s and firearms is quite overwhelming.

Law Forbidden : Debuffs Debuffs are forbidden. You heard the Judge. You are going to be fighting Moogle Flintlocks, the advanced form of the Fusilier. In fact, they look like the guards standing outside Buckingham Palace in England all the time. Anyway, don't bother trying to kill them all, they just keep coming. You need to survive for 4 rounds, so either beat their levels of about 22 or you can use a fair amount of White Mages to keep your clan alive. You can easily go and clean them up, they have pretty low resistance compared with their defence. However, the enemy takes time to prime their weapons, it takes them one turn before they are able to use their ballistic abilities. After this stupid mission, surviving cannon fire for about 4 rounds or about 80 turns, you get the Flintlock job since the Moogles can't handle the onslaught, even if you didn't attack. --==Mission C4-07 ~ Instruments of Inspiration==-- "This is terrible!

Law Forbidden : Copycat Using the same action as the preceding unit is forbidden This is quite an annoying law, unless you have plenty of abilities that your units can use, which means it a bit easier. Your main aim is to find that missing item, which is hidden in the shiny sparkles, as all the missing items are hidden in these sparkles. There are 4 Monsters here, 2 Ice Drakes, 1 Lamia and a Bloody Orb. The first one to be taken out is the Bloody Orb, since it can debuff you and that could cause some problems. The Lamia and Ice Drake are both the same, they can dish out damage, but cannot really kill you or anything seriously like that. Don't worry about your allies. Two of them are on Lvl 1, the devotees, and they will get hit and die pretty quick. The Raptor, Mayhew, is the only strong one, and at a high level, possibly higher than your own, it is pretty strong and can handle her own. Kill the monsters and look for the concertina, it is easier than just ignoring them, they will kill you and that isn't what you want at all. And there is a little bonus that isn't mentioned in the Job description, you get the Raptor Job unlock for the Gria class. However, you can do this job before it is even possible to get a Gria. Well, tough luck I guess. --==Mission C4-08 ~ Loar Airships Grounded==-- "The skies along the shipping lanes to Loar have been teeming with floating eyes. They've even infested the aerodrome.

Law Forbidden : Opportunity Commands Opportunity Commands are forbidden. There are going to be 6 enemy units. There are 2 Floating Eyes, 2 Bloody Orbs and 2 Ahrimans. Man, this is going to be a pain. The Ahrimans are armed with Bewitching Glance and Demonic Gaze. The Floating Eyes are using Gnaw, and one has Wave. And the Bloody Orbs are using Vampire and Supersonic Wave. The first enemy unit to take out is the Ahrimans. They are the most painful units when their glares and you need to constantly end your turn without facing them. The next are the Bloody Orbs, it isn't because they are strong, it is because that the Floating Eyes are weaker. Holy attack this if you really need to, they aren't all that powerful, their levels are around 28 give or take.

Law Forbidden : Receiving Buffs and Debuffs Receiving Buffs and Debuffs are forbidden. Well, unless you have some abilities that increase the resilience of your units or have items such as Ribbons which make you immune to debuffs, you are going to be breaking the law pretty quick since your enemy are going to be Tricksters with a lot of debuffs to play with. The Tricksters are quite a problem. Four of the tricksters have 2 skills from their Sleight of Hand ability, and they have a choice of Snigger, Shadow of Doubt and Hypochondria. The leader of the team will have Charisma and Traumatize instead, as well as Rend Speed. Well, there is pretty much no real way of following the law that is in the least bit practical. All the resilience in the world could not prepare you for that 1% chance of getting debuffed. Also, the odds that the enemy can debuff you is quite high. There isn't a point in targeting one trickster first, they are all the same, but you might as well target the main one first since he has the better skills. After this battle, you get a nice new job, the Trickster job. Now all your bangaa can be like Gambit. --==Mission C4-11 ~ Kidnapping!?==-- "I can't get word to Prima Donna, and I've tried everything!

Law Forbidden : Back Attack Attacking a unit from behind is forbidden. You are actually going to fight Prima Donna, due to another miscommunication. Seriously, why does everyone have to attack us because they don't listen to what we have to say? Seriously, this isn't funny. The objective is that you need to kill everyone, but you cannot let them touch the water, then you lose. There are 6 enemy units here. The Raptor is armed with Soul Crush, the Fencer is armed with Nighthawk as well as Earth Heal. The Spellblade is armed with Poison and Stun Blade, as well as Death Sickle. The Hunter is using Advice, with 4 Geomancer skills. And there are two devotees, who are useless. All you need to do is to defeat all foes. The Hunter definitely needs to go first, the power of the Geomancer skills will make your life a bit more difficult for you if you don't pay attention. The next one to go is probably the Spellblade, because Death Sickle isn't a skill that you want to be experiencing. After that, the Raptor and Fencer need to go, because they are leveled with your clan. In fact, all the enemy units are leveled with your clans, but the Devotees aren't, they are still on Level 1 and 2, which makes a 1 hit kill pretty easy. This is use a copy and paste of the mission where you can fight Prima Donna. Don't worry about the law, it isn't really a problem, because you are going to be facing them head on. --==Mission C4-13 ~ Banbanga!==-- "The Tri-Bangaa Temple welcomes novices seeking guidance in the martial arts.

Law Forbidden : Targeting Self Actions targeting the user are forbidden. You are facing 3 Master Monks and 2 White Monks. Well, they aren't bald, for a start. Anyway, the White Monks only have Roundhouse and Counter. One Master Monk is using Dark Fist, Withering Strike, Lifebane and Blink Counter. Another has Pummel, Dark Fist and Air Render. The last also has Pummel, Dark Fist and Air Render. This is an easy mission of you are equal or surpass the level of the rank of the quest. First of all, target the 2 Master Monks that have Air Render, because that is the last thing you want. Next, the final Master Monk. Then, the White Monks since they aren't all that powerful, no decent abilities. Targeting Self means that you cannot use heal on yourself, or any abilities that target yourself, so be careful if you are one of those goody-two shoes who love following the law. You really do need to break the law when you need to. At the end of this mission, you get the Master Monk job to boot, as well as the loot. --==Mission C4-14 ~ The Cat's Meow==-- "I saw it with me own eyes!

The Wendigo is using Bone Shatter, Brute Strength and Helmsplitter. The Wolf has Summon Pack and Fangs. Well, that looks easy. NOT. 2 more enemies decide to show up, another Wendigo with the same skill set, and another Wolf with the exact same skill set as the previous wolf. They are all in their low levels, or around 28, and they aren't happy. The problem here is that you are pretty far away from the Seer to protect him, or her, or whatever. This is the problem. You need fast and strong moving units to rush to the defence of the Seer to make sure that it doesn't turn into Monster Chow. Don't forget to dig for the treasure next to the Seer.

Well, this is the easiest mission because you are easily going to overlevel the enemy, since they are all levels in single digits. Old Man Boi Boi is using Water and Aero, the Komodo Trader uses First Aid, Rend Power and Rend Magick. The Devotee uses Souleater and Sword of Darkness and finally, the other devotee uses Haste.

Law Forbidden : Swimming Entering a water tile is forbidden. You need to fight 3 Geomancers here, as well as the Wendigo and the Nagaraja monster as well. And you can't enter a water tile, which is rather annoying, but no real matter. What you want to take down quickly are the Geomancers. With the rain falling down, they will be able to use a nice water spell that does a fair amount of damage on your troops. Units such as the Fusilier is rather useful to ensure that you can stop them. You also need some melee units to fend off the monsters. So long range, and melee units are relatively good here to ensure that you can fend off the unwanted guests and win this mission. Well, 2 more trials to go until you can finally get the Geomancer's job. --==Mission C5-02 ~ Geomancer's Way - Sun==-- "Geomancers bend nature to their will.

Law Forbidden : Reaction Abilities Reaction Abilities are forbidden. An easy fight, or so you would think. There are 3 Geomancers here to you need to face, and you get to use 6 units for the battle. But don't forget that there is a Hellhound and the Nidhogg that you need to take care of as well. The Hellhound as the usual skills and the Shadowy Blow. The Nidhogg uses a fair amount of Fire and Lightning skills. The Geomancers, well, two of them have Shining Flare and Nature's Embrace with addition to Artifice's Embrace. The Third has Shining Flare and Nature's Embrace (which are the default moves for any Geomancer, they are automatically given), and Life's and Earth's Embrace as well. The problem here are really the Geomancers. You either need to rush and take them out so they cannot deal a lot of damage to you, because their range is quite high with their spells, or disable them to make sure that they don't cast their spells. Berserk, Charm, Disable, Stop and Silence are pretty good debuffs here to use on them. Take out the Monsters first if you really cannot deal with them, otherwise, you should stick to taking out the Geomancers first and then deal with the monsters becayse they really aren't a threat. And this is the first of four trials? Man, it is going to take some time to get the Geomancer's Job. --==Mission C5-03 ~ Starstruck==-- "We've been so busy with our singing we've entirely neglected our stage combat.

Law Forbidden : Restoring MP Actions that restore MP are forbidden. Here, you join Prima Donna fighting a Deathscythe a Nidhogg, a Great Malboro, a Lamia and a Headless. Not a hard battle considering that you have 4 Prima Donna units and 3 of your own to fight with. The Deathscythe uses Doom, Shackle and Daraga, but also has Blood Price. The Nidhogg has Fire and Ice Breath, the Great Malboro has Eerie Sound Wave, Goo and Putrid Breath. The Lamia uses Night, Twister and Hand Slap and finally, the Headless uses Quake, Bone Shatter and Sunder Earth. You might want to send someone to target the Lamia, because Night amkes all your units fall asleep and you really don't want that to happen. Next, deal with the Deathscythe, because he isn't all that nice either with his Doom power. Since we are taking down debuffs, you want to kill the Great Malboro as well. The Headless and the Nidhogg are the leftovers, so you can beat them up when you really want tom because they aren't the most important of targets. --==Mission C5-04 ~ Moorabella Nightwatch==-- "A plague of robberies has fallen upon the land!

Law Forbidden : Copycat Using the same action as the preceding unit is forbidden. We are facing a nice set of 4 Baknamy here, well 3 Baknamy and 1 Luchorpan, and since this is an all monster battle and only allowed 4 units, you best choice is to bring magick users and Hunters, the more of the latter the better. Don't worry about your reinforcements, they are quite useless here. The look of the owner's face is priceless though. You really want to kill the enemy fast here since there is a round limit, and I not sure if this is random or not, it could be 2 rounds! 4 Monsters in 4 rounds, this requires you to bring in some ranged units, Hunters again are very useful. Take down the Luchorpan first, that seems to be the strongest and the fact that Mutilate seems to hit more often than not really doesn't seem to help. The other Baknamy is quite easy to eliminate. This is overall an easy mission, since you can use ranged units, but make sure you don't get caught using Sidewinder twice. For those who have speed issues, bring your high movement units. Gria Hunters seem the best for this since they can fly. If you don't have fast movement, use Haste since that will give you more turns in the same period of time. The spell Leap from the Green Mage will also be pretty good. At the end of the battle, you get a scrap of paper. This will be useful later on. Especially with the other Nightwatches. --==Mission C5-05 ~ Ravager==-- "To Clan , Think you're all that? Prive it! I'm waiting in the Galerria Deep!

Read about the notice that the Flowsand Lord coming back to life again? Well, this is the mark that we are facing, and he has a LOT OF HP. You have to play against a Ravager, and she is all by herself. Well, that makes it 4 V 1 V 3. If you are wondering, there are still Pit Beasts that protect the Flowsand Lord, which is really a Yowie, and he is weak against Wind. So, you need to plan this battle accordingly. The best way of defeating this sucker, while making sure that you win, is to use 2 Seeqs if you have them, and use Mirror Items. 2 Mirror Items with X Potion will pretty much cut the HP in half, this guy has about 1600 HP, so that would really mean something. Raptors with their Wind Attacks and Elementalists with their Wind Attacks are going to be VERY useful here, since Wind damage is super effective against him, dealing double damage. Close range Hunters are also good, they can deal double their normal damage against this guy. Again, it is a speed battle, so make sure that you win this battle. Best to leave about 300 HP so you can have a decent crack at it with several units. Mirror Items is useful here since it will definitely do 400 damage. Heal if necessary, and make sure you win. Because if you do, you get the Ravager job for your Gria. --==Mission C5-06 ~ A Lanista's Pride==-- "Something horrible has happened: a great affront to my family I cannot let stand!

After that Plumfrost mission, you'd pay dearly for this, you and your "strong" Owner as well. They is going to be simple. Well, a Parivir, Ninja and Assassin joins the fray, and they have pretty high speed to boot. This does state the fact that they are powerful though, they are about 10 levels above the rank. The Ninja has Dual Wield, Throw, and somehow, somewhat really stupid for a physical class, Prominence and Tempest from the Illusionist Class, the Assassin has Shadowbind, Aphonia and Ague. And finally, the Parivir is using Shimmering Blades, Skyfury Blade and Hoarfrost Blade. The Ranger and the Berserker are too pathetic to mention. The first to take down is the Assassin, she has a ranged weapon, which really makes life a bit difficult for your devotee, who isn't on level 1, he acutally has some decent health, but 220 isn't really cutting it. Then, the Ninja, because he can throw things, and that is quite dangerous, and finally, the Parivir. The other two, well, they can be taken down with a single hit, they are that weak. And we get the Lanista job for your Seeq. FINALLY, A MISSION WHERE ALL THAT BONGA BUGLE CAN BE TAKEN OUT ON THE EDITOR AND OWNER.

Law Forbidden : Debuffs Debuffs are forbidden. A similar mission to all the other Nightwatches, all you are doing is facing 3 Baknamy units and a Luchorpan unit. This is quite an easy mission, and to make it even easier, you will get some backup from another group of units to make sure the job is done. The Luchorpan and the Baknamy have their usual skill sets, no surprises. All have Magick Hammer, the Baknamy has Goblin Attack and the Luchorpan has that Mutilate ability. No surprises. However, the Parivir ally, Ninja and Assassin are extremely fast moving units so the only problem with them ios grbbing all the extra EXP from your units. You have 4 rounds, so bring your monster hunters and bag some goblins.

Law Forbidden : Targeting Self Actions targeting the user are forbidden. This time, you need to change the loadout of your team, you need to bring in some monster hunters, since you are facing Bloody Orbs, Lamashtu, Bombs and Golems. There is a treasure chest, and you need to open it to win this mission and as you can guess, all you need to do to open it is to defeat all the enemies in this mission. The Lamashtu is the most dangerous of the enemies, but besides that, you won't need to be too worried about the monsters. Magick will tear holes in the monster provided that you bring in the correct magick type. Sidewinder will just demolish the enemy monsters with relative ease. Once you demolish all the enemy units, you can finish the mission by opening the treasure chest, grab the weapons, and you will be able to learn the Adelaide ability, which is the final Heritor ability, which is one of the best classes in the game with completely unlocked. ************** **SECTION D1** ************** --==Mission D1-01 ~ An Earnest Delight==-- "I seek the love of my life!

They somehow mananged to learn Fira as well. The Grenade has Flame Attack, Spark and instead of Fira, it is Firaga. The Worgen is using Screech, Summon Pack and Fangs, and somehow, Shadowy Blow. Finally, the Headless uses Quake, Bone Shatter, Brute Strength and Sunder Earth. This is hard if you want to follow the law.

I seriously don't see how this is going to end their bloodshed, but whatever floats their boat I guess. The Arcanist is the leader, and he has Drain, Syphpon and Graviga. The Illusionist has Prominence, Tempest, Freezeblink and Stardust. The White Mage has Cura and Esuna. The Time Mage uses Slow, Reflect and Stop and finally, the Black Mage uses Fira, Thundara, Blizzara and Thundaga. You are fighting with a Cannoneer armed with Foresight, Mortar and Target, a Gladiator with Fire Soul, Thunder Assault and Blizzard Tackle and a Biship, with Barrier, Water and Aero. You are all going to be equally leveled, so you have a number advantage to play with, although you have a little problem of 3 guests that you cannot control. You need a healer, for starters, and some heavy hitters, and they need to be fast. The first problem is going to be the Black Mage and the Arcanist. They are the biggest worry about their magick is going to be killing a lot of your units if they are not careful. Those two are going to be the first to be killed. The next to die is the Time Mage, he can make your units have their turn a lot slower than you would like. Next, the Illusionist, he is later because he needs the time to get his valuable MP.

Madreth and his Time Mage come in to help you out against House Bowen, so bring in three top units, and get in there, covering the other three units, and healing them when necessary. House Bowen has the loadout with a Ravager, Fighter, Assassin and the Illusionist. The Assassin and the Illusionist is the most important target or targets here. The Assassin can take down your units with her dangerous death attacks, and the Illusionist will target all the units. However, the good thing about the enemy Assassin is that she will always seem to use Vanish, which makes her less dangerous. If she does, target the Illusionist first, then deal with the Fighter and the Ravager because they are the frontline units that are capable of damaging the other leaders, because they are all ranged units, Mocedad is a Cannoneer and Madreth is an Arcanist.

Not only that, after a few turns, even if you haven't killed on, one will join into the frey. Although their skills can slow you, gang up on them, don't think that you can one on one this mission out, you can't. You want to kill them as fast as possible, so that your enemy reinforcements don't cause you too much grief. After a while, the evolved form of the Antlion shows up to party. The Pit Beast is stronger and more powerful. Just hold the fort for 10 monsters to win this mission, don't stress out completely. It is easy, divide the team up to two, and fight.

Damn, this is some hell of a confusing rivalry. You have an Arcanist, the leader, who can't die, an Illusionist and White Mage while you are fighting a Cannoneer, a White Monk, a Master Monk, a Bishop and a Gladiator. Given the choice of enemy targets, you want that Gladiator down, but that is far easier said than done, since he does have a hell of a lot of health. The Cannoneer should be your first target, not because he is the leader, but he extremely long range and is powerful with his cannon attacks. Given their choice, the Bangaa will attack the Nu Mous first, then they will head for you. This is evidence when they targeted Madreth 1 HP all the time when I had 4 units on near full health. Target the Cannoneer, then Gladiator and Master Monk. The White Monk should be next, and the Bishop last, since he is quite weak. The sole reason that you should use a lot of magick users is that they are more effective against the Bangaa since they are melee units. MP Efficiency and the Illusionist spells with Halve MP would be extremely useful. MP Efficiency is even more useful here if you have the Ultima attacks. --==Mission D1-13 ~ Memories==-- "Ayeee!

Law Forbidden : HP < or = 20 Having less than 20 HP is forbidden. Well this is an extremely easy mission. All you need to do is to not die for four rounds and you win. The best method of attacking the mimics is using elemental magick. They are quite weak and take double damage from all type of elemental magick, which means your Illusionists are going to have a field day. These drop relatively good loot, so this is a nice place to loot the enemy as well as the fast that there are going to be unlimited, and I really do mean this, unlimited mimics. You kill one, another will respawn in its space, kill 5, five more will spawn in its place. It is a while before the fourth round comes along, so bring a White Mage is you want that extra layer of security, but you can easily handle this mission without taking too much flak. ************** **SECTION D2** ************** --==Mission D2-01 ~ The Seas of Ordalia==-- "-Annual Wayfarer's Expedition!- Visit all the below areas within 6 days and receive a stamp in your wayfarer's log to win valuable prizes!

This is a speed battle, so it is in your best interest to take down that Reaver as fast as possible. That thing as a lot of health, and his skills are going to hurt. He can also rend your armour and your shields, so it is best to bring some ranged units to take this sucker down. He has Evade Magick, which means that it is going to be hard to deal the Earth damage that this unit is very weak to. The best way to finish this mission, besides the one hit Mirror Items on this guy, is to sidewinder him in the back until he dies. Chita is quite powerful, so you don't want him to get the upper hand, you could just let him take the beating and you waltz in and save the day like you should. You know what with Speed Battles, you can just kill the competition and heal the enemy in order to win. However, once that unit dips below 400 HP, Mirror Items will solve all problems. At the end of this battle, your special gift from Chita is a nice weapon called the Materia Blade. --==Mission D2-06 ~ Bug Hunt==-- "I need someone to catch these really rare antlions for me.

Lets start at Moorabella. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes except the White Antlion! Law Forbidden : Lightning Weapons and abilities that use lightning are forbidden. There are two werewolves, 1 Sprite and 2 lamias that you need to take care of. They are quite easy, so deal with them as they decide to come along and face you. Don't bother moving that much. let them come to you. The enemy Antlion is actually a Pit Beast and has Critical Vanish. Take down the enemy units and move into the next battle. The monsters here are weak to Sidewinder, so use that to blow them away. However, Sprite is going to be the first to fall, always. Zedlei Forest Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes except the Blue Antlion! Law Forbidden : Ice Weapons and Abilities that use ice are forbidden. You are fighting 2 Antlions, a Chocobo and a Giant Tortoise, when the Blue Pit Beast being a sit out since you really don't want to kill it. The enemies aren't all that powerful here but they can be annoying to fight. Take down the turtle first, it is the strongest hitter on the enemy team. Then, if they are sufficiently close enough, take down the enemy Antlions because they can cause some debuffs for your team. And finally, the Chocobo, which isn't a big problem at all. Use a Chocobo Knight to capture it if you want a yellow or normal one. The Bisga Greenlands Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes except the Green Antlion! Law Forbidden : Fire Weapons and Abilities that use fire are forbidden. Unlike the previous missions, there is a notable addition of traps, well, the other could have traps, but I didn't see any. All you are fighting here are 4 Antlions, which really aren't that sttong, but they are armed to the teeth with debuffs. This is easier since there is only one type of enemies, which makes it easier in terms of fighting with the enemy's weakness in mind. They are weak to wind, so anyone who wields wind is going to do nicely. This should end the mission if this is the final battle. --==Mission D2-07 ~ The Show's Not Over==-- "I am a songstress.

Law Forbidden : Summoning Scions Summoning Scions is forbidden. This isn't going to be a hard mission, but you do need to deal with a monster that is faster than you. There are 3 Sprites, 1 Banshee, a Brown Chocobo and a Fire Drake. The Sprites, well, 1 has White Wind, another with the completely random Lvl. ? Holy Spell while all will be armed with Meteorite. One will also have some Time Magick, Stop and Undo, so make sure that you take down that one first, since Stop isn't exactly the nicest buff in the world. The Drake, as usual, comes with Fire Breath and Mesmerize. The Banshee is using Meteorite and Petrifying Rattle. And finally, the Chocobo will have Choco Cure and Choco Guard. This is another mission in the volcano, and as such, you really need to be quick here since taking your time will let the volcano go KABOOM! After the third round has ended, it will tremble, dealing damage to all units, and the longer you take, the more rounds pass, the more damage that you deal. I didn't exactly leave my units here to see what happens. Take down the Sprites and the Banshee first, they are fast and far too dangerous to be fast. Then, left with a Drake and Chocobo, well, do as you please. Note that you team is split into two, so make sure you have some high movement and high jump users for the bottom, since there is a lot of jumping, while some decent range is needed at the top. --==Mission D2-09 ~ Cake: The Recipe==-- "I had a fight with my father the other day, and we haven't spoken a word since.

Law Forbidden : Lightning Weapons and abilities that use lightning are forbidden. Wow, you are going to face an adamantitan, a lilith, 2 cockatrices, a bloody orb and an axebeak. They aren't hard, just play with the weaknesses of the units. Water and Wind are going to be key to winning, as well as your favourite anti-monster units, Hunters and Sidewinder. Now, you need to start targeting the most dangerous units first. The Adamantitan can get very dangerous to your equipped items when he does get close. You might want to take him down, or take down the Lilith, which is also quite dangerous with Night, which can put all your troops to sleep. Besides from that, the Bloody Orb, the 2 Cockatrices and the Axebeak isn't really a threat. The Vampire attack of the Orb isn't very dangerous, and the Cockatrices just have more health than dealing damage. Now, there are traps all over the map, so a White Mage is probably going to be needed. You need to gather all the pages, and considering that you aren't able to jump that high, you need to make sure that the enemy is taken care of since you really need to go the long way around. Ranged units will make this mission easier, with Fusiliers, Flintlocks and Cannoneers the best choice that you have. Unless you have Gria units, that would make it easier. --==Mission D2-10 ~ Cake: The Ingredients==-- "I went collecting ingredients to make my grandmother's special cake, and I've gone and tired myself out completely.

Law Forbidden : Bladed Weapons Attacks with knives, swords, blades, sabers, katanas, axes knightswords, greatswords, and broadswords are forbidden. This law makes it a bit tougher, but we are just fighting a bunch of monsters, so bring in the archers to shoot them down. Hunters and Magick users are going to be important here, since they are going to be the ones that are going to win your battle. The Rocktitan uses Headbutt and Rain of Stone. Pit Beasts use Sandstorm, Suffociate, Cockatrices use Scurry, Peck and Scatter, and finally, the Axebeak uses Stone Breath, Peck and Wake-Up Call. A powerful amount of units to fight, but they are too disjointed and they can be dangerous. There are traps on the battlefield, which makes life a but tougher, but nothing a white mage will easily fix. If you plan to follow the law, sidewinder these suckers to death and finish this mission. --==Mission D2-12 ~ One Red Phial==-- "Ever heard the story of the "one red phial of antidote?"

Law Forbidden : Back Attack Attacking a unit from behind is forbidden. There are going to be monsters that are going to hinder your battle to collect those exam papers. You need to collect all of them, so this isn't a go and hope you are lucky type mission. There is a Sprite, 2 Deadly Nightshades, a Hoppy Bunny and a Dreamhare. You want to target the Sprite first, she has Stop and Slow as well as Meteorite with her powers, so that makes her a prime target to removal. Next is the Hoppy Bunny with the various debuffs that it can use on your units. Not nice. Dreamhares and Nightshades take the last place of removal. They are the weakest and are easy to kill. So, take the Sprite and Hoppy Bunny first and then worry about everyone else. Take them out and then collect all the exam papers. Or rush and collect the exam papers, but where's the fun in that? No loot to take from the enemy. --==Mission D2-14 ~ Maintaining the Balance==-- "The creatures of Tramdine Fends are on the brink of catastrophe!

Law Forbidden : Reaction Abilities Reaction abilities are forbidden. Its ironic that the society of protection wants to kill of something they are meant to protect. Anyway, you are facing the standard party of 5 Antlions. The best form of attack you have come in the form of ranged units. Again, since you are dealing with monsters here, Hunters are the best form of attack. Why hunters? Sidewinder. Double damage against Monsters. Thats double your normal attack. Next are units using Wind attacks. Since they take double damage, why not use it? The Antlions are going to be trying to Blind and Poison your troops, but since you can use ranged units, swat them down before they have a chance to move close to your troops and attack. Careful, there are traps on the ground, so be careful. They are mostly Sten Needles. As for the Law, if you use ranged units, R abilities aren't going to have much of an effect. But take them off if you have something such as Counter or anything that blocks damage. That would make sure you get the law bonus at the very end. --==Mission D2-15 ~ The Natural Order==-- "Natural habitats in the Tramdine Fens are in danger!

Law Forbidden : Grouping Ending the turn next to another unit is forbidden. What a crap law. This is a ranged attack battle since you don't want to be next to another unit, even if the enemy decides to end next to you while you cannot move your legs. Anyway, 5 Cockatrices you are facing here, so bring either water element users or Hunters with the Sidewinder skill. The Cockatrices aren't all that powerful, so spread out your team, with good vantage points, and snipe them as they head towards you. Some of the have Wake Up Call, which allows another target to get a turn, immediately, which isn't all that nice. This is a problem. Target those Cockatrices that have this skill to ensure that they don't pop up and frustrate you as you try to kill them. Another has Stone Breath, so make sure you pop him off too, or else you need to bring a white mage to remove the Stone debuff. --==Mission D2-16 ~ Cilawa the Gluttonous==-- "I've thought up a new formula I'm eager to put to the test.

Enchan is the most hopeless and worthless White Mage I've seen for a long period of time, he literally can't do anything, and don't move very far at all. The bad news is the Rafflesia has about 2000 HP, which isn't very good, and their abilities will sprout Malboros at will, and a large array of effects that effect surrounding units. You really want to bring fire units here. Elementalists with Fire Whip, Black Mages with Firaga, anything that will do fire damage, since this beast is extremely weak against Fire. Also, any unit that can also inflict the status effect of Oil at the same time is greatly appreciated, since oil increases the damage of your fire attacks. You need more firepower since it also seems to have Absorb Damage as well. If you can, get ranged units, because Ranged units will be able to avoid the messy business of melee attacks. Don't worry if Enchan gets debuffed as a result, he can't do anything, won't move, won't act. Just make sure that the Malboros don't come along and hurt him, and he will be fine. At the end however, after two useless items, you get a RIBBON! --==Mission D3-09 ~ Cleaning to Loar==-- "Looking for helpers to swab an airship.

You need to quickly take down the sparkles at the end of the airship, especially the two on the wings. Haste and High Movement is going to be necessary in the end.

Law Forbidden : Harming Nu Mou Actions that harm nu mou are forbidden. Well, this is an interesting mission where you have 5 people to fight against a whole swarm of monsters. There is a Nagaraja, 2 Rocktitans, an Adamantitan, a Hellhound and a Wendigo. To make it worse, the White Mage really doesn't help and the level of the monsters are about 10 higher than the rank, but by the time this mission is accessible to you, you should be able to deal with them. The Rocktitans and the Adamamtitans aren't going to be easy to kill, so bring in their weakness, Wind Magick. Be careful since some of them have Matra Magick and Munch, which effectively eats your weapons and turns it into crap. The Hellhound is rather fast, with high speed, but it isn't anything that your units can't take down. The Wendigo isn't something that you haven't fought before, so nothing is new, except for the Nagaraha, which is probably new, and you might want to bring in some Holy Element users to make quick work of that wyrm. Unlucky for the wyrm when facing me, he face a 420 damage critical after a 160 damage hit. Go Dual Wield. This mission is to protect Enchan, the white mage, and you aren't allowed to hurt him, because as you might have guessed, he is a nu mou. He doesn't even bother to heal himself, just trying to catch fish with his bare hands. Well, good luck with that. Make sure that he doesn't die because he is the mission, protect this slow moron. --==Mission D3-11 ~ Love-Struck==-- "I was developing a love philtre for my studies, but a classmate drank the potion before I could complete it and has come down with a terrible fever.

Law Forbidden : Fire Weapons and abilities that use fire are forbidden. This is an annoying battle, more because of the law and defeat all foes. The law is annoying if you accidently decide to use a fire attack, so to avoid this altogether, you should bring only Wind Magick users and Hunters. You are facing 4 Malboros here, 3 normal Green Stinky Malboros, and the Lord of Stench, a Malboro King with his pathetic slimy crown. This is going to be nasty, so bring a White Mage or someone with Esuna to make sure that the debuffs doesn't ruin your game. All the Malboros have Bad Breath, Goo and Purify. Two will have Counter, one with Evade Magick. The Malboro King will have Eerie Sound Wave, Malboro Song and Putrid Breath. Because Malboro Song is quite annoying, since it heals and gives Regen, you really want to take down his highness, the Malboro King first because of the Regen. Then, you have three Malboros to choose from, they are all the same ability wise anyway. Just make sure you don't use fire.

This is how the law goes, you can see the height on the top left hand corner of the touch screen, where there is a "h" followed by the number. You cannot exceed the number 10 for this battle. It isn't a problem for this battle anyway, we have an easy mark. Luso is necessary for this battle, Cid isn't. Nezzel has Flare, Poison and Toad, as you'd expect, Items as well. The Black Mage has Fira, Thundara, Blizzara and Blizzaga. The Time Mage has Slow and Stop, the Green Mage has Blind, Sleep and Silence. The White Monk has Roundhouse, Air Render and Earth Render, and finally, the Hume Thief has Steal Gil, and from the Parivir class, Iai Blow and Blade Rush. All you need to do in this mission is to kill the Alchemist, so you might as well do that, otherwise, you are going to face a very strong Black Mage who isn't going to be very nice with your troops. Rush and kill the Alchemist and be done with this, you really don't want to drag this battle out, because you'd need the high ground, and that is forbidden. After the battle, we meet a really old friend, Ezel from the first game. He gives you a ward or a card for the protection of your judge. It will stop anyone from banishing your judge, so it is going to be very handy. --==Mission D4-08 ~ Beneath the Sands==-- "Need someone to head over to Kthili Sands and look for my treasure.

Law Forbidden : Summoning Scions Summoning Scions is forbidden. Well, you need to search the sparkles to find the one that you want, so you either need to do this one fast or make sure that you take out all the monsters because they kill your salvage effort. There are 2 Antlions, both have Sandstorm, Saliva and Subidence, along with Bonecrusher. The Brown Chocobo will have Choco Cure, Choco Beak and Choco Guard. The Yellow Jelly has Merge, Acid and Thundara, but Geomancy is the problem with him. Finally, the Drake has Lightning, Thunder Breath and Shockbolt. There are 6 sparkles, so if you are really lucky, you might get one in the very beginning close to your units, and that will end the mission really quickly, but the sparkle might be the one at the very back. Careful as you move however, there are plenty of those charm traps around. If you are going to fight it out, bring along a White Mage to cure all those status effects. Take down the Antlions and Chocobo first because their skills might be killer. Take down the rest with the Jelly at the top of the list, Geomancy isn't something that you really want.

You are facing a total of 3 thieves and 2 soldiers, all of the hume variety. And don't worry, these units are pathetic. The Soldiers are only armed with provoke, which sends your units into a Berserk debuff, which may be a problem and the thieves only have steal gil. To stop the law applying to you, long range kill the enemy thieves or use Safeguard or the similar clan privilege that gives you safeguard. This isn't all too hard, and they are on a weak level.

What you need to do is to just run up to them and bash the crap out of them to finish the mission.

Law Forbidden : Targeting Distant Units Actions targeting units two or more tiles away are forbidden. This law basically means that you are going to be restricted to melee fights since any ranged attacks are going to be out of the question. This is going to be hard for your units though, because the majority of them is going to have abilities that go beyond the one tile allocation. Break the law if you feel that it is necessary to win. Again, like all the other Nightwatch missions, there are going to be four enemy units here, you have 3 Baknamy and 1 Luchorpan to fight here, all with Magick Hammmer, Baknamys with Goblin attack and the Luchorpan with the Mutiliate attack. Again, you will have some backup for this mission. Chita's Weaponers, a Gladiator and 2 Warriors will join the fray on your side, and the will pretty much deal with the Baknamy and Luchorpan on their side, and that leaves your units with 2 Baknamy to deal with. The best way to stay within the confounds of the law is that you go and use a unit with Trapping as a secondary ability set, but is going to be a melee fighter in order to use melee Sidewinders. That is the only inventive way I can find of using Sidewinder. Or, you could just break the law, it is going to be easier if you do. At the end of the mission, depending on which Nightwatch you are playing out of 5, you will get another message, in crappy handwriting and that means you need to investigate some more. --==Mission D5-02 ~ The Camoa Nightwatch==-- "A plague of robberies gas fallen upon the land!

Law Forbidden : Targeting Self Actions targeting the user are forbidden. Again, another mission where you need to fight another set of Baknamy and a Luchorpan, again with their usual skill set. So I'm going to give you the same rundown as the other missions. Again, like all the other Nightwatch missions, there are going to be four enemy units here, you have 3 Baknamy and 1 Luchorpan to fight here, all with Magick Hammmer, Baknamys with Goblin attack and the Luchorpan with the Mutiliate attack. Again, you will have some backup for this mission. The Camoa Braves is going to be the ones that are going to provide the backup for this mission. They will bring in a Warrior, which is the leader, and two White Monks. They are quite powerful and can handle their own, so you don't need to worry about them. Still, I thought that I was the owner of the territory. The best way to stay within the confounds of the law is that you go and use a unit with Trapping as a secondary ability set, but is going to be a melee fighter in order to use melee Sidewinders. That is the only inventive way I can find of using Sidewinder. Or, you could just break the law, it is going to be easier if you do. You might want to check out that black urn, there are some nice Brigand Gloves in there. At the end of the mission, depending on which Nightwatch you are playing out of 5, you will get another message, in crappy handwriting and that means you need to investigate some more. --==Mission D5-03 ~ Stowaways==-- "There are murmurings among our passengers that there are ghosts aboard the airships.

Law Forbidden : Solitude Ending the turn without a unit in an adjacent tile is forbidden. Another stupid law. Now you need someone next to you. What is wrong with the laws in this game. You are facing a mixture of dark and undead units, so you might want to bring someone with exorcise. There is a Deathscythe, 2 Ghosts, 2 Ahrimans and a Bloody Orb. They pack the usual skill sets, so there isn't any surprise here. The Deathscythe has Doom, Deep Sleep and Shackle. The Ghosts have Sleep and Silence Touch, one with Flash, the other with Dark. The Ahrimans have Demonic Gaze and Bewitching Glance. And the Orb has Parasite and Counter to note. This is an easy mission somewhat. The enemy is quite weak, so bring in some heavy hitters. Also, bring in someone with Burial or Exorcise to make sure that they go down. You might need some Hunters to make sure the undead aren't the only ones who need to stay down. Take down the Ahrimans first, they are a problem with their gazes and glances at your team. Next, the Deathscythe because of the Doom ability, then the Ghosts because of the various debuffs, and finally, the Bloody Orb for the completion of the mission. After this mission, you end up in Moorabella, so keep that in mind. Free air trip. --==Mission D5-05 ~ Wanted: Devotees!==-- "Wanted: The criminals known as the Devotees! - Duo responsible for several acts of theft. - Though to be involved in arms deals. - Thought to be followers of a certain band of musicians.

You must have also finished the Stone with No Name quest as well, that is important. Anyway, you only need to defeat the two Devotees, and luckily for you, they aren't too hard, packing a level of one and two for the both of them, but the dumb bodyguards aren't that weak, leveling at about 40. You also need to answer some questions, and that are going to be, of course, Prima Donna Armband Prima Donna Photograph Prima Donna Towel Prima Donna Necklace Prima Donna Hairpin These answers are going to be depending on the order in which you completed the Nightwatch missions, but they are going to be the Prima Donna answers, not the DNA Hairpin and the Arms deal. Even though you can take down the enemy Devotees quite easily, you are going to need to bash your way through the enemy Baknamys and the Luchorpan in order to get there. They aren't too hard, and they total at three, so that makes it easy pickings for your troops. The Devotees in this mission won't actually do much, they won't even try to attack you. Don't bother with the jar by the way, it is a nice touch from an early mission. There is also a chest here, so grab that as well. --==Mission D5-06 ~ Fluorgis Nightwatch==-- "A plague of robberies gas fallen upon the land!

Law Forbidden : Swimming Entering a water tile is forbidden. This is going to be like all the other nightwatch missions, you are fighting 4 dumb goblins, 3 Baknamy and 1 Luchorpan. Again, they will all have the Magick Hammer ability, the Baknamy will have their Goblin Attack and the Luchorpan has the Mutilate ability. Again, you only have 4 rounds, but we have a nice bonus. This is a very easy fight because House Bowen will join in the fight, bring Bowen, Loa, Veis and Tweigel. They will provide a lot of firepower, more than enough to beat the Goblins and back, so you need to provide backup. The problem here is the law. You cannot even touch a water tile, so if your route touches water, cancel and redo the route. This is where Flying units are the bested, Feathered boots are okay as well. At the end of this battle, like you do in all Nightwatch battles, you will get a scrap piece of paper, which all leads to a further goal. --==Mission D5-08 ~ A Lost Companion==-- "Got a strange letter today at the pub from someone named Gade.

Law Forbidden : Debuffs Debuffs are forbidden. This is a mission where you need to read a notice at the pub about a Lost Friend, which is available after you have completed the Gifted mission which allows Adelle to become a Heritor. You need to use Adelle here, Luso isn't necessary. There are 2 Ghosts, both with their respective touch abilities, 2 Zombies, both having Drain Touch and Miasma, and finally, Gade, the Wraith with Flash and Wake the Dead, and some dark magicks to boot. This assortment of undead monsters should be easy to you because the time you can access this mission, it is very late in the game, 2 missions before the storyline is finished. Therefore, this is going to be easy. Bring in someone who can either use items or exorcise all the undead monsters back to the realm of the otherworld. Remember, you need to beat Gade here to win this mission, and for someone of his abilities, he is quite weak. After the mission, you get a special item, a Tiptaptwo, which will give you the ability to use Viola for the Heritor class, which happens to be the name of the dead friend in this mission. The next Heritor quest isn't going to be available until Adelle masters Viola, so quickly master it. --==Mission D5-12 ~ Help!==-- "We got a letter today from a man named Wermut, some old guy who hurt himself out in the swamp.

This mission requires you to be able to read the Send Help letter at the pub, which only arrives when you have mastered Viola. Head to Zedlei Forest, and head into the area. All you need to do is to have a potion ready and Wermut decides to give you a nice bludgeon weapon, which is quite powerful in terms of power, and more importantly, ability. --==Mission D5-13 ~ Bringer of Doom==-- "Came across a worrying notice in the pub about a creature threatening the town of Goug.

Law Forbidden : Reaction Abilities Reaction Abilities are forbidden. You start this mission getting the new weapon, the Chirijiraden straight away so you might as well equip it. This is going to be a hard battle since the enemy is able to attack from a range, so you need to be able to do so as well. For this battle, I suggest you bring in healers, and Hunters. Hunters are needed for their Sidewinder ability, and if you don't have that, you need to bring in Cannoneers, Flintlocks or Fusilists. These have extremely long range, and considering that you cannot move next to it, you are going to need the range. This is pretty much an artillery battle. Whoever has the stronger artillery in the end wins. You are using an MLRS rocket system, the enemy is using a Cannon. Normally, you should win, you have multiple units to target the enemy, whilst the enemy is only having the chance to attack with one shot. It will use its Charm and Doom ability all the time, which can target groups of people, so healers are a must. Without healers, you will be taking fire from the enemy's cannon and you are without any rockets. Without rockets, a MLRS system is practically useless. Hunters shine here, this is an animals and you might as well make good use of the double damage ability. --==Mission D5-14 ~ The Shrine of Paling Gods==-- "Came across a worrying notice in the pub about something strange happenings at the shrines of the Paling Gods in Tramdine Fens.

Law Forbidden : Harming the Weak Actions that harm a lower level unit are forbidden. This is a mission where you are most likely to break the law if you even so much as to scratch one of the two malboros, the Great Malboro or the Green or Black Chocobo. Therefore, you better not go with the gung- ho approach, and instead, complete the mission. What you need to do is to head to each of the pillars and power them up, and there are three of them to last count. That makes it a relatively easy mission, just move fast and you will be able to empower all three of the stones, and that allows for the completion of another mission. Where the new weapon comes from, I don't know. --==Mission D5-15 ~ The Beast of Aisenfield==-- "Read a tale about a man who possessed a terrible power.

Law Forbidden : <20 Damage Dealing less than 20 damage is forbidden. You face another defeat mark mission, and this guy is facing you in the level 40's, which again, should be quite easy at this stage. He also has two fire drakes, a Headless, a Axebeak and a Rocktitan joining him in this battle. When you start, he begs you to kill him, yet he still puts up a fight. WHY? If you want to take him down quick, bring in some users who can dish out some Holy damage, he is weak to that. If you want to do this the old fashioned way, start eliminating the other units. Take down the Fire Drakes using Ice abilities, it won't be too hard to find some ice magick to use on them. The Axebeak is weak against water while the Headless and the Rocktitan are weak against Wind. This is the best place to use a Hunter or an Elementalist. The Axebeak is going to Wake Up Call everyone, think of it as a Smile Toss ability. That isn't too nice. The monsters aren't too hard to take down, but the Zahak may be a problem. He is quite powerful with abilities dishing out elemental damage, so Holy is going to be the way to go. After this battle, the Zahak admits that he was one of the Gifted Ones but wasn't able to resist the temptation of power, and that happened to him. Nasty. --==Mission D5-16 ~ Woman of the Wood==-- "Came across a worrying notice in the pub about a woman surrounded by monsters in the woods.

Law Forbidden : Knockback Actions that knock the target back are forbidden. Well, you need to fight Ljda, the one Wermut was talking with before he decided it was a nice time to disappear. She is another Gifted One, though she is using the skill set of an Elementalist. You need to defeat mark here only, but you can take down the monsters as well. This is relatively easy, given that your level is far above the rank since this is only available near the end of the game and through many different quests. She is normally at level 37, the monsters weaker still. There is a White Chocobo, Banshee, Ice Drake, Fire Drake and a Thunder Drake to top things off. If you are going after everyone, go after the Banshee and then the Drakes, and the Chocobo for last, and that should top things off completely. Ljda isn't really that hard to defeat, she only has three elementalist spells to fight with. Given that distance is so far away, you can easily smash her and remove her first turn your units get to move. This will net you a nice new ability to play with for Adelle. ************** **SECTION E1** ************** --==Mission E1-01 ~ Bonga Bugle - Goldsun==-- "Greetings! Bonga Bugle Head Editor here!

There is no one need you need to kill, you need to follow my funky little treasure map. Also, there is no real limit here on how long you can dig for treasure, you can be here all day, or until your DS battery runs out, or when you are in a blackout and the Full Battery slowly drains away. The treasure map is below.

Small Treasure is basically an item that you can use in battle, such as Eye Drops and Antidotes where the Mysterious Treasure is not all that mysterious, it is really a piece of loot. Most of the time it is small fry, but you can get items such as gil as well. Also, you can attack where the Head Editor is, there is a nice piece of loot where he is standing also. Anyway, check the entire map and look for the best type of treasure that you can get. It is all random so its pretty much trying your luck. Nathan Rickuss has sent in that you can get Large treasures as well. That means more gil or a weapon. Very Large treasure also exists and you get even rarer weapons as well as more gil, which is always, always useful. --==Mission E1-02 ~ Bonga Bugle - Silversun==-- "Greetings!

Law Forbidden : Copycat Using the same action as the preceding unit is forbidden. This is a protect and undead battle, the worst kind of battle that you can get. The undead you are facing here are the Deathscythes and the Ghosts, which are all undead, so cure works on them pretty well. There are going to be 5 enemy units on the field at a single time, so by knocking one down, another one will appear on the battlefield, which means a lot more leg work. The enemy doesn't want to fight that much either, so that means you need to take the fight to them, which means a lot of movement. To kill one of the undead, get them to ZERO HP and that will turn them into a tombstone, which you need to bury with burial, exorcise or a phoenix down. You can use those moves while the undead is still active, but the accuracy isn't going to be 100%, its more 40%. The best thing you can do is to just dish out the damage. Using Holy attacks is going to be helpful, Cure spells are useful, and if you really want to finish this mission quickly, use X Potions, whilst having Item Lore will make this mission end a bit faster. There are also traps around, and they are of the Leech type. This mission serves a much deeper purpose. A lot of new missions are going to be spawned as a result, such as the Sun Seal and Death March, and most importantly, Brightmoon Tor, eventually. --==Mission E1-03 ~ Bonga Bugle - Ashleaf==-- "Greetings!

Law Forbidden : Ranged Weapons Attacks with bows, greatbows, guns, hand-cannons, and cards are forbidden. Ah, this is basically a race mission. The fastest unit to make it to the Galmia P.R. will win the mission. That being said, you are going to fight the Jylland Free Press. Well, this is how battle is done in Hollywood, except they don't have battles, just car races. The Ninja here doesn't have much except for Water Veil. The Time Mage can speed up their own troops. Green Mage has Leap, which makes their units go further and Geomancer has the basic two spells that all Geomancers have. Given the attack power of the enemy, you want to take down the Geomancer first, because the offensive damage it can deal with her spells. That should be too hard, but no range means no guns. Oh well. The next on the list is going to be the Time Mage. Making sure that those remaining units don't get any extra turns is relatively important. The other two you can eliminate at your will, they aren't as important. But the mission is making sure that you get to the Illusionist first. This is done by waiting next to the PR lady. There is no talk command here, but then again, it is an exclusive, and that means not telling the other people what the story is all about. You get a small bonus by getting there first as well. --==Mission E1-04 ~ Bonga Bugle - Mistleaf==-- "Greetings! Bonga Bugle Head Editor here! This month's special feature: Unlimited Power!

Law Forbidden : Harming the Weak Actions that harm a lower level unit are forbidden. Well, there is a Hoppy Bunny, a Werewolf, a Deathscythe, a Malboro and a Nidhogg. The problem is that law. If you are above 38, well you are in a problem with the law because you can't harm the weak, and that is an issue. The Deathscythe has Doom, Shackle, Darkra and Blood Price. The Hoppy Bunny has War Dance, Go-Go Dance and Sleep. The Nidhogg uses Fireball, Fire Breath, Dragon Force and Bonecrusher. The Malboro uses Bad Breath, Eerie Sound Wave and Goo. The Werewolf uses Roar, Slug and Assault, and has Blink Counter. Well, you really can't do much here except killing the enemy. Thats all you can do. First, take down the Malboro and the Deathscythe, since they are the biggest problem here is in this mission since they are the causes of the debuffs here. The rest are quite easy, but the real problem here is the law. You cannot harm the weak, so if you overlevel them, bring in your heavy firepower and kill them all. You can follow it or your don't.

Anyway, head to Fluorgis. Your Mission Objective : Protect the Head Editor and Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Harming Seeq Actions that harm Seeq are forbidden. What an interesting law, I guess I cannot harm to the Head Editor and try to kill him for kicks. In this mission, you are only allowed three units to deploy, but you are fighting 4, so to balance it out, you are going to be fighting with Prima Donna themselves. On Prima Donna, there is a Raptor, a Spellblade, a Hunter and a Fencer. They are quite powerful but the other side is even more so. There is a Blue Mage with White Wind, Quake and Bad Breath. No, thats not a bad joke. The Archer is armed to Take Aim, Cupid and Blackout. The Hunter is Sonic Boom, Mind and Power Crushes and the Thief has Steal Gil, but Rend MP and Speed. This is a targeting mission rather than protect. The Head Editor has Critical: Vanish, so he doesn't need any help. Target the Blue Mage first because his debuffs and healing powers are going to be a pain. Then, the Archer and Hunters down, and finally the Thief. This is going to be a long battle, because the AI takes forever to kill the enemy. Give me a Seeq with Mirror Items and I'll easily take them out. The enemy is STOPPED. Don't freaking Shield Bash it. No, don't give my units Advice. ARGHHHHH, DUMB AI. At the end of this painful battle, you get 60 Clan Points, 4590 Gil, 4 X Holy Stone, 2 X Damascus and 2 X Faerie Wing. --==Mission E1-08 ~ Bonga Bugle - Emberleaf==-- "Greetings from the Bonga Bugle!

You will be sent to a RANDOM location to fight a RANDOM CLAN. After you complete the reporting part, you have until the end of Emberleaf to get to the reporting location, because if you haven't realised already, Emberleaf is auction season and you are going to be busy. Since it is a random encounter, and you really don't know what your are fighting, you need to see what you are fighting and bring an effective counter attack. For magick clans, fast physical units and vice versa if you are doing the opposite. It really doesn't matter, I've babysat you enough to effectively deal with every single challenge that comes your way.

Law Forbidden : Piercing Weapons Attacks with rapiers and spears are forbidden I hate this Head Editor, I wish I could kill him. There are several different monsters here, a Sprite, a Baknamy, a Worgen and a Wolf. You might think that it is easy by defeating all the foes, and placing the pots. No, more enemies come to the fray, making this more than annoying to say the least. The enemy will steal the pots, thinking they are toys or something of the like. Anyway, just kill the enemy and get the job done as fast as you can, you don't want to be laying pots all over the place. The enemys can debuff you, so make sure you check the abilities of the enemy and take down those who can debuff you, and saving those who can't for the very end. You might get a bonus if you make sure that no pots get stolen, but that is quite hard unless you have overleveled and easily kill the monsters here. But don't worry that much about it, it isn't the end of the world if you don't get that little reward. --==Mission E1-12 ~ Bonga Bugle - Plumfrost==-- "Greetings! Bonga Bugle Head Editor here!

Luso can do a better job than this guy. Anyway, finish this interview for the small amount of gil and fly off to Fluorgis and start this mission. Your Mission Objective : Protect the Bugle staff and defeat all foes! Law Forbidden : Summoning Scions Summoning Scions is forbidden. Well, the law isn't all that hard to deal with since Scions is more of an option. Well, this is a protect mission, you need to protect the weak Editor, and the even weaker Owner with the best face in the game. I don't see why the Editor doesn't stage a coup and take over. Anyway, we're facing Bombs in this mission. There are 2 Grenades, both Flame Attack, Spark, Firaga and Bonecrusher, out of all the reaction abilities. The Bombs are armed with Self-Destruct and Flame Attack, as standard, Fira, MP Shield, and worst of all, Blood Price, which means Fira first turn. What you want to do is to bring in Hunters and users of Ice Magick. They are going to be the most handy here. Water Magick is also handy against the enemy Grenades. Well, the Owner seems to think that his Level 1 skill is enough to save him, but since I brought my B team, I had two healers to make sure that moron didn't die. You really want to take out those bombs. And don't worry about the Owner, that moronic Level 1 unit decides to take on Bonecrusher. *******. Take down the enemy Grenades first, they are the most powerful, while keeping the enemy Bombs at bay so they don't suddenly break through and blow the crap out of your protected units. Man, you'd wonder why I hate the Bonga Bugle after this. Any enemy attack pretty much KOs them or sends them into HP Critical. This is the sole reason why the rank is so high. Also, the AI is ******* stupid. You're on HP Critical, and you attack an enemy with Bonecrusher. WHAT!?!?!?! ARGHHH! Six resets because of a suicidal AI. 3 HP and he attacks. ******* STUPID OWNER! ARGHHHHH! You get your real reward after the battle, consisting of Gil, Coral and Fury Fragments and your usual Clan Points and Ability Points. --==Mission E1-13 ~ Bonga Bugle - Bloodfire==-- "Greetings!

Trust the editor of this rag to be a Seeq, and by God doesn't he look bad. Great, it isn't even a battle, all you need to do is to get Luso to be a shop clerk? Ergo? Haven't heard that word since Miles Edgeworth, but he isn't here with his objections anyway. Ok, for hitting things from a distance, you are looking at a Malbow, after all, hitting things from a distance means you need a bow. That thief looks happy. The Paladin wants a weapon named after a monster. The answer to that is Bomb Arm, named after a Bomb. The hip-hop Bangaa wants a nice shirt to go with his suit. Pick the Head Editors shirt for laughs. Pick the Frilly Shirt for the answer. The White Monk wants something that will cure oil. The answer is the Handkerchief, that cures oil. Someone will ask for a distance weapon, again, pick something that has BOW in it. A Seeq will ask for some boxers... pick Prima Donna Boxers. Critical Haste is given by Golden Armour. If a Tonberry asks for Exilir, give it to him, don't be an idiot. Anyway, you have 10 customers to serve, and if you get a good score, you get a bonus from the Editor. Just do as I say, and you'll be fine. --==Mission E1-14 ~ Bonga Bugle - Greenfire==-- "Greetings from the Bonga Bugle! This month we'll be looking at rare and unusual laws!

Choose not to insult him and say the magick password in order to complete this part of the mission. You need to head to Fluorgis now for the actual reporting. And you don't even get money for the airship. Stupid Editor. Your Mission Objective : Uphold the Law and Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Being Robbed Having hil or items stolen is forbidden. This law, if it was real, would be one where the victim was the one that committed the crime, and the offender the victim. What a stupid law. All the enemy is going to do to you, is, you guessed it, steal from you. I hate this clan, I hate this law. 44% chance to hit my ass. You need Safeguard here, or the Clan Ability that will Safeguard all your items. Where you start is actually a good position, you will be blocking all the chokepoints, and also, you have good range. Do not move from your starting position, you have a good spot, and place traps in front of your frontline units to delay the enemy just a little bit more. To stop the enemy stealing, either disable them or kill them. The best is Charming the enemy to make them kill each other, Confuse will suffice. Long range units such as Fusiliers and Cannoneers will make life much easier, but so does illusionists. Scions are quite powerful here as well. Just make sure that some enemy doesn't get a lucky steal. At the end of this stupid mission, you get a nice 56 clan points, 3030 Gil, 1 Onion, 1 piece of Agathis and 1 piece of Dipraeu Bronze as well as the usual 30 ability points. --==Mission E1-15 ~ Bonga Bugle - Skyfrost==-- "Greetings from the Bonga Bugle!

That is the best reward for a mission in the entire game. Anyway, head to the location and he will give you a question from a pool of questions, since I didn't get the same question. Still, he paid 10 gil for a pair of underwear? Wow, another 8 more gil, Luso could buy a pair as well. Anyway, answer his questions with a SMIRK and that will send you somewhere else. You need to head to the Ruins of Delgantua, and that is after you get your valuable 2 gil and 10 ability points. And now, we need to fight in a nice battle. Your Mission Objective : Protect the Head Editor and Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Buffs Buffs are forbidden. Looks like we found the hiding spot for a nice Viera clan. I don't see why we can't hand over the editor to the clan so they can deal with him. Anyway, you are dealing with an Assassin with Shadowbind, Nightmare and Ague. The Elementalist has Evil Gaze, Boulder Crush and Sliprain. The White Mage has Cure and Esuna. Green Mage uses Blind, Silence and Sleep and the Sniper has Beso Toxico, Death Sickle and Marksman's Spite. First of all, this is a protect mission, so make sure that the stupid Head Editor doesn't get himself killed. Take down the Sniper and Elementalist first, they have the powerful attacks that you probably don't want to deal with later on. The Sniper is the biggest target since you really don't want Doom on all your troops. The Green Mage and the Assassin are also quite powerful, but take them out in 3rd and 4th spot since their debuffs aren't as powerful as Doom. Finally, take down the White Mage last, since cure and all that aren't as important. You need a White Mage here, or at least a healer, because the amount of debuffs that you are going to be facing are staggering. Esunaga is even more handy here, but odds are, you won't have the MP to use it. After the battle, you get the proper reward. 64 Clan points, 4940 Gil, 1 Hedychium and 1 piece of Black Thread. 30 Ability Points will also be provided as well. --==Mission E1-16 ~ Bonga Bugle - Blackfrost==-- "Happy New Year from the Bonga Bugle!

You need to go doorknocking in this mission. Basically, you need to talk to every household and every person on the street, without trying to kill them because that is against the law, though you could kill them, it doesn't say to uphold the law. You need to note down what the people actually say to group them, well, just remember the basic jist of it. NOT RESOLUTIONS - Picking up gil off the streets now got easier. Not a resolution, mind you. HEALTH RESOLUTIONS - Stay healthy to follow Prima Donna around. - Do more work. And stay healthy to do more work. - Go on a diet. - Making money. Go away. Leave me alone. *Cries in corner* - I think I'll just be healthy instead. - Stay fit. Lift weights and stuff. - My back's been aching o' late. I'd say living healthy'd be a good resolution, wouldn't you? - When you work for one of the big houses, as I do, you need to stay healthy. A sick worker is a broken cog! - I'm going to train my body; sculpt it into the most efficient killi -- efficient body. - Well, I'll need my health if I'm going to keep going to as many Prima Donna shows as I do. - I hurt meself last year, see? I don't want that to happen again. You could say I wanna be healthy. Oh, and my friend, he says he wants to pull off a big job and get famous. - I always say, health comes first! As for how to go about being healthy, well, that's another matter. WEALTH RESOLUTIONS - Get a bundle of gil to get a bigger house. - I'll work hard, I will. *koff koff* Make a little money, perhaps... - Save gil to go to more of Prima Donna's concerts. - Collect weapons. Never got enough. - Make money to go on lots of trips with her man. - Pulling off a big job or two in the future. - Well, I wouldn't mind putting away a few gil to help me through the golden years, you know? - I gotta be more careful not to get so scraped up this year. - Why, working hard and making gil! Satisfied? Then leave! - Well, I want to be rich ... Which means I'll need a promotion. WORK RESOLUTIONS - Become a better auctioneer. - Do more work. And stay healthy to do more work. - I want to work, kupo ... But I also want to heep going to see Prima Donna on stage, kupo! - Why, working hard and making hil! Satisfied? Then leave! STUPID RESOLTUIONS - Do one-hundred snowhumes. - I'm always going on walks - it's my hobby, see - and darnit if I don't get lost ten times outta five .. Eh? - Tee hee! Why, I'd love to go on lots of trips with my man ... I suppose that means I'll have to work hard and make lots of money! - I'll just work on my tan as I always do ... Ah, crispy. - Every time I eat somethin' they tell me's "healthy", why, I get a powerful case of the runs .. Eh? Anyway, at the end, talk to the Editor and get the answer correct on the most popular resolution to finish the quest. Normally, it is making money, so just use it and reload if you fail. ************** **SECTION E2** ************** --==Mission E2-05 ~ Survey No. 258==-- "Wanted: Researchers to assist with geological survey of the Galerria Deep.

Law Forbidden : Bludgeoning Weapons Attacks with rods, staves, poles, knuckles, hammers and maces are forbidden. You are going to face several monsters here, including a Black Chocobo, 2 Ahrimans and 3 Zombies. There are all monsters, while the Zombies are going to be undead. Undead units can be damaged by using heal on them, and then they are killed, they leave a tombstone. The tombstone can removed via a phoenix down, but if they are allowed to reach the turns required, they will resurrect for good. This will keep happening until the battle is over. The Ahrimans can be ignored as long as you do not face them. If you do, they will use their gaze powers to seriously debuff you. The Chocobo is relatively easy to take down while the Zombies have their power to resurrect, and they will until you survey all the points of interest. Just rush and take care of all the points, and as they are monsters, use their weaknesses, such as holy attacks and Sidewinder to ensure that it can be an easy battle. Bring someone with the skill exorcise or burial to bury and remove the undead zombies from play. It is an easier mission, just don't be too worried about the enemy's skills, just use esuna if they debuff you. Careful, there are also traps here so you might want to take it slow. --==Mission E2-06 ~ Survey No. 259==-- "Wanted: Researchers to assist with geological survey of Nazan Mines.

Law Forbidden : Summoning Scions Summoning Scions is forbidden. Well, at least the law ain't all that bad. You are fighting a Plague, armed with Roulette, Binding Circle and Dread. There is a Zombie with Miasma and Drain Touch, which is the same skill set for Zombies as well. The Ghoul has Darkra and Absorb Damage as well as the zombie's skills. The Bloody Orb has Vampire and Supersonic Wave. This isn't an easy battle, but nor is it a hard one. You need a unit that can exorcise the enemy units since you are fighting a good deal of undead units, and maybe a White Mage and a few Hunters to make sure that the enemy can get themselves killed. Take down the Ghoul and Zombie first, they are the most powerful in the enemy team. The Plague might take priority since it does have Roulette which can make your life hell. The Zombies and the Bloody Orb isn't such a big threat since they are quite weak. Remember, the goal of the mission is to examine all the little sparkles, but it is far easier without the monsters in the way. --==Mission E2-07 ~ Survey No. 260==-- "Wanted: Researchers to assist with geological survey of the Neslowe Passage.

Law Forbidden : Opportunity Commands Opportunity Commands are forbidden. Here to dig stones? Doesn't that sound a bit strange to you. What type of stones are there to be found near volcanoes? Diamonds you say? Anyway, there is a Ninja, Parivir, Cannoneer, Trickster, Seer and a Master Monk. Depending on your level, that isn't too bad. You need to investigate all 6 points rather than defeat these guys, but it will make your life a hell of a lot easier if they were all dead in a casket rather than disturbing you. Send your fastest units to take down the Cannoneer and the Trickster. These units have extremely large range for their cannon and card attacks, so it would be nice to take them down, as well as the Seer, the source of Magick on this battlefield. Your melee units can duke it out with the Parivir, Ninja and the Master Monk. There are 6 locations, and the reason why you should kill all the enemy is that most of them lie behind enemy lines, which make it a pain to rush through and survey all the points without being killed. But other than that, this mission isn't all that hard. And be careful, there are plenty of Sten Needles all over this place. --==Mission E2-08 ~ Survey No. 261==-- "Wanted: Researchers to assist with geological survey of Zellea, the Forbidden Land.

Law Forbidden : Targeting Distant Units Actions targeting units two or more tiles away are forbidden. You are going to face the strongest of the enemy units this time around, yet you don't get any benefits in terms of level. You have to collect all the stars that are sparkling, and investigate them all. The enemy is full of Behemoths, Reavers, Tonberry Kings, Plagues and the Malboro Kings. You need to pack a fair amount of healers, as well as some animal hunters, especially Sidewinder. You see, the only good thing about killing the enemy animals is the loot, but other than that, they will just keep coming back, so you are practically killing them in vain. If you don't want to fight, unlike me, who wants to belt the living crap out of all the animals, you should bring in some fast units, like Ninjas who have extremely fast movement, and that will allow them to investigate all the points before they get nailed to the wall. There is a Magick Cannon here, so you can charge them up to fire the cannon on the enemy, but if you aren't here to fight, you will see the point that there is no point fighting them, there is an infinite supply of these monsters. If you get bored of killing the monsters, you should grab a single unit, have them surrounded by as many enemy units as possible, and see how many they can kill without dying themselves. --==Mission E2-09 ~ The Finest Blade==-- "You know the shelled beasts that walk this land with their long-forgotten foes' swords lodged in their backs?

Remember, you only need to defeat the Mark and the mark only. You want to take down that bunny at fast. It has Go-Go Dance which means haste and that really isn't a good thing. The Blade Biter have Resonate, which is very annoying since it causes disable, so hope that your White Mage isn't really effected. Any user with a bladed weapon will be effected, so your White Mage shouldn't be blade wielding, should it? The Pit Beasts aren't anything special, they do have their annoying ability to blind you, so you want them down. Even though this is a defeat mark type mission, remember that there are 5 monsters that stand between the mark and your team. It is best that you take them down, and nothing is better than a little target practice and some more loot, but at this point, you want only the best loot for the best weapons. Anyway, move past the enemy units, taking down the Bunnies, then Pit Beasts and finally, the Rocktitans.

Law Forbidden : Non-Elemental Effects Use of non-elemental weapons and abilities are forbidden Ok, we are getting the use of such weapons. Anyway, once you head to the location, the cheating Seeq offers you 50 Gil for the Darklord Crystal, easily worth 5000 Gil at the stores. You want that? Think again, time for Battle and teach them who's boss. Like I said, the law requires you to actually use elemental attacks, so all attacks much use either Fire, Ice, Thunder, Water, Wind, Earth, Holy or Dark in order to obey the law. This starting party is different, you are going to be split into three groups, each facing a Seeq and a Jelly. So, pick your elements carefully so that you can easily destroy the Jelly before they can do damage before you attack the Seeq. The Ice Flan has Blizzara and Blizzaga, and the Ranger is armed with Sten Needles, Love Potions and the lovely Camouflage. The Red Marshmallow is armed with Fira and Blood Price, the Ranger there is armed with Silence Gas, Leech and the DREADFUL MIRROR ITEMS! And finally, the Yellow Jelly is armed with Thunder and Thundara while the Berserker is armed with Scream, Furore, Ground Shaker and Smite of Rage. This battle is going to be split, unless you join up your team and make them a united fighting force. Also, there are going to be traps with the Rangers walking around, so be careful here. This battle isn't hard, just join up your forces and fight as a team, not as an individual effort. When the mission ends, you get the proper gil of 5000. Damn, I could have sold it to a shop for 6000. I did control the map via auctions. --==Mission E2-12 ~ Vim, Vigor, and Go==-- "I'm exhausted.

Law Forbidden : Targeting an Area Actions targeting two or more tiles are forbidden. Oh boy, I hope that you seriously have exorcise here, or you are going to have an extremely hard time to take care of there suckers. There are 5 Ghosts and 1 Wraith, and they aren't going to be easy to kill. When those guys trapped in the mine were killed, their spirits obviously didn't go to rest very well. You need units with Exorcise or people with Items so you can use your Phoenix downs. Archers with Burial are also a useful unit to bring along to the fight. Your first target, and most obvious target, is the Wraith. It can cast Darkga, the strongest dark attack you'd see for a while, so it might be hard to contend with. The Ghosts are quite annoying with Sleep and Silence touches, and there is one with Flash, which pretty much blind units. You would want to bring a White Mage here, not to save your units, but cure works well against the enemy undead. Also, when you fight, you want to be careful, there is a big need for a white mage since these traps will use charm on your units. Not nice at all. Ironic ending by the way. --==Mission E2-14 ~ A Treasured Heirloom==-- "My most treasured family heirloom - a gill snapper shell - has broken clean in two!

Law Forbidden : Fire, Ice, Lightning Weapons and abilities that use fire, ice, and lightning are forbidden. Well, there are 2 Great Tortoises here, 2 Banshees and an Adamantitan, which is acutally a Gil Snapper. That is the one you need to target and you need to destroy or kill the turtle to win the battle. The Banshees are going to be the ones that you want to get rid of first since they have some nasty abilities, and they can dish out some damage, so get them down quickly since they don't have a lot of health. The next are going to be the Great Tortoises since they are going to be in the way of the battle. Moving in the beginning without a white mage as a support unit is going tobe hard since there are traps that can annoy you. Remember, the main focus is the Gil Snapper, you need to take that down only, so if you really want to get it down fast, grab a Seeq, use Camouflage, and Mirror Item the sucker with Item Lore and X Potion for 400 damage. --==Mission E2-15 ~ Picnic Pleasure==-- "I'll be taking my children in my class on a picnic soon, but now I hear monsters have been sighted near our picnic spot, and frankly, I'm a little concerned.

Law Forbidden : Fire, Ice, Lightning Weapon and abilities that use fire, ice, and lightning are forbidden." Now, you are fighting two Headless, a Grenade, 1 Ice Flan, 1 Yellow Jelly and a Ice Flan. Now the problem is, you aren't allowed to use the three strongest or rather, most common magicks, so you need to need to fight using other means. The Headless are weak to Wind, so you can nail them there. However, the rest aren't that weak overall, so you either need to use magick, or fight using brute force, such as Sidewinder. Again, Hunters are important because of their Sidewinder power. The Flans are also problems because of the fact that they can heal themselves using their Black Magick on themselves, so wipe them out. Take out that Grenade before it can explode. First of all, you want to take out the Flan, magick is devastating in this mission, especially you aren't allowed to use it. Then, focus on the Headless because of the fact that they have quite powerful physical attacks and by the time you are done with the jelly, they're right at your doorstep. The grenade should be last because it isn't exactly the biggest threat on the map. --==Mission E2-16 ~ Escort Wanted==-- "I'm designing the fastest airship ever built, and I need to find a light, but strong metal to use for the gears, kupo.

Law Forbidden : Knockback Actions that knock the target back are forbidden. Well, hope you don't get any criticals in this mission, otherwise the law is going to cane you. Anyway, this is one where we need to guard someone, and this time, its a Fusilier. The Headless aren't going to be a problem, they have Brute Strength, but then, one will have Sunder Earth, who will somehow also have Absorb Damage. The other two with Brute Strength only will use Bonecrusher, which isn't all that nice for your normal attacks. The next two units are the Reapers, the Deathscythes. They both will have Darkga as their dark magick, and Doom, as standard. One will have Steal Thoughts which addles your troops and the other one has Deep Sleep, which we have all seen before. Then, we have the Lamashtu. That unit is a pain. Kiss, Poisonous Frog and Eternal Sleep will be the skill layout of this nasty monster, Eternal Sleep makes it worse. That is the combination of Doom and Sleep. This one is where you really need some Sidewinder power. Wind users won't do amiss either, since they are quite powerful monsters. Take down that Lamashtu first, that is the worst pain ever seen. Then, take down the Deathscythes, and make sure that either the Phoenix Down or the Exorcise kills off their tombstone and makes them go away for good. And finally, the Headless, but they are quite weak in comparsion to all the other units you are facing. ************** **SECTION E3** ************** --==Mission E3-05 ~ Shaved Ice==-- "I need someone to bring me an ice stone.

Law Forbidden : Targeting an Area Actions targeting two or more tiles are forbidden. Man, why do we always have to fight the undead in the mines? What is with the undead and the fascination with mines. Anyway, you need to bring some heavy hitters and some people who can exorcise the undead tomestones. Anyway, there are 3 ghosts, 2 zombies and a ghoul, so they are all undead units. Use your units to beat them up so they are in their little tombstone state, and then use exorcise to make sure that they don't return. Or, you can easily move faster and grab all the loot in the chests and urns and the little sparkles to finish this mission since the aim of the mission is to gather all the ore and not to kill all the monsters. If you are planning to use this method, use high Speed and high Movement users since that would make your life a bit easier. Also, there are a few traps here and there, so be careful. --==Mission E3-07 ~ Wish Upon a Star==-- "This past night I saw another falling star in the direct of Sant D'alsa Bluff.

Law Forbidden : Elemental Effects Use of elemental weapons and abilities is forbidden. Well, this is more or less a monster battle with a single Alchemist and that is going to be the mark. As it happens, it is obviously located at the highest and furthest most point from your starting location, making you fight 2 Great Tortoises and 2 Zombies and a single Ghoul along the way. What fun. Take down the Zombies first, and then the turtles. With you are fighting the Zombies, you can cure them with cure spells or use potions on them for damage before using a phoenix down, exorcise and burial to make sure that the undead don't rise again. The alchemist is the mark, and hat means, all you really need to do is to take him out and that means the end of the mission. It really doesn't matter if you don't take out the enemy units along the way, though it is inherently more fun. The law might be a problem here. Elemental effects means that you cannot use any elemental attack. Abilities that deal elemental damage is forbidden, even the damage on your weapons. So, either stick to abilities, or use items to bring down the enemy, Mirror Items work a treat here. Check your weapons and abilities before you use them. --==Mission E3-10 ~ Wanted: Hatchery Worker==-- "My precious chocobos will begin laying eggs soon, and I want to take on an additional hand to work in the hatchery. - No experience required - All applicants welcome - Room and board to be provided - Duration : 15 Days Yew, Chocobo Rancher" -------------------------------------------------------------------- | Wanted: Hatchery Worker | Rank: 18 | Fee : 300 Gil | Days : 20 | |-----------------------------+--------------------------------------| | Month of Greenfire | Quest Type : Satisfy Petitioner | | | Reward : | | Quest: Rancher's Request | 2560 Gil | | Green | Platinum X 1 | | Dispatch/Recommended : | -- | | -- | -- | | -- | | | | Dispatch Mission ? = No | | Talents (Required) : | Can be canceled once accepted | | Negotiation : 0 | | | Aptitude : 0 | Destination : Targ Woods | | Teamwork : 18 | Members : 1 | | Adaptability : 18 | Gain 36 Clan Points | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------------- Well, think about what type of classes will allow for this quest to be a total success.

Law Forbidden : Action by Seeq Seeq may only move and perform basic attacks. Well, two things. Number one, the biller sounds like a seriously overbearing boyfriend, smothering anyone? And next, the law sucks, I wanted to get though this with Mirror Items. Oh well, pounding the old fashioned way. What a great mission, its 6 against 4, but the 4 is quite strong. You have a Blue Mage who can use Sandstorm, Bad Breath and Unction. A Seer with Esuna and Fira, as well as Magick Counter. An Archer with Leg Shot, Arm Shot and Take Aim and finally, a Ninja with Throw, Fire and Water Veil. Use a quick and ranged team to take these guys out. Your first target should be the archer, with arm and leg shot, it can make things a little more painful than they should be. The next one is the Ninja, because his two veils can cause some debuffs as well. Now, you need to take out the Blue Mage, because Bad Breath is pretty bad and will cause debuffs, and the Seer last, because he lacks anything that can make him remotely threatening. When you see the girl, well, it is seriously disturbing. Oh, my eyes, it burns... --==Mission E3-12 ~ Eternal Rivalry==-- "My master suddently left the dojo the other day, leaving behind a note that said he was off to fight his sworn enemy!

Law Forbidden : Restoring HP Actions that restore HP are forbidden. This is the easiest mission that you will have to do at this late stage in the game. All you need to do is to head to the battlefield location and watch the fight. You need to sit and watch, you don't need to worry about anything, even the ground trembling. Don't bother fighting, whoever wins won't be rewarding to you, though you do want Grant to win, since you do get some loot off the body of the Paladin who has just fallen.

Law Forbidden : Being Robbed Having gil or items stolen is forbidden. I swear this law is stupid. Being punished where the victim is the criminal, that is low. Anyway, You are facing a Master Monk, Berserker, Thief, Beastmaster and 2 Fire Drakes. Now, you only have 4 rounds, so bring in some heavy artillery to take them out. What you need to do is to take out the 2 Fire Drakes. They have the ability to heal each other, and healing in this context is a completely bad thing, since that will make you take longer to kill them, and that means it will take longer to win, and you have a time limit. The rest aren't anything you haven't seen before, it isn't unexpected that the enemy is pretty weak if you bring in the right amount of firepower on this mission. Take out the enemies, and you will get a small bonus of an item, Fiend's Blood. --==Mission E4-02 ~ Shelling Out==-- "Fisherman's Tortoria is an old Graszton favorite of lightly seasoned turtle meat.

Law Forbidden : Bladed Weapons Attacks with knives, swords, blades, sabers, katanas, axes knightswords, greatswords, and broadswords are forbidden. You need to face two nice turtles, and you cannot at all use any bladed weapons, but you have a much better weapon than a bladed weapon, magick attacks and Sidewinder is not considered a bladed weapon if you shoot them from a range. So teach them what a sidewinder can do. The Two Great Tortoises are the main targets, but there is also a Lamia, Adamantitan and 2 Rocktitans as well. Wow, a lot of animals, so pull out the Sidewinder and take down the enemy with extreme force, but no bladed weapons, unless you really want to fail this mission. The enemy has a lot of HP, that is the only problem with them. Other than that, they are easy targets, so wipe them off the dance floor. For the completion of this mission, you get a bonus Pink Tail as well. --==Mission E4-03 ~ Flantastic Finish==-- "Zedlei Flan, a specialty from the forest of the same name, is a delicate desert that melts in one's mouth, before melting one's heart.

Law Forbidden : Opportunity Commands Opportunity Commands are forbidden. You are going to face that flan, as well as a variety of other animals, some Deadly Nightshade, Hoppy Bunny, Werewolf, Lilith and a nice White Chocobo. You need to defeat all the other enemies before you can hurt the flan. That out the other animals, using whatever seems to float your boat, you can take them down using bladed weapons, sidewinders, scions, but what you need to do is to take down all the enemy units except the flan. When you have done so, take down the flan by attacking it, and then you need to weaken it to critical health. Once it is on critical health, it is finished, and you get a Sweet Sap as a reward. --==Mission E4-05 ~ The Honorable Thing==-- "Ah, the sweet lips of my love. My one pleasure in this life.

Law Forbidden : Buffs Buffs are forbidden Not a hard mission, the law is pretty reasonable. Well, there is a Parivir with Wind Slash, Blade Bash and Hoarfrost Blade. The White Mage as Cura, Cure and Refresh. The Hunter has Arm Shot and Leg Shot, and if that wasn't enough, Vitals Shot. The Cannoneer is armed with Target and Mortar, and finally, but not least, the Defender has Whirl Burst, Mow Down and Bulwurk. Well, don't expect the mark to show up, this is a representation battle, who can represent the other guy who we hardly know better. You really want to take down that Hunter first, those shots aren't too friendly for your units. Vitals Shot isn't nice with you get HP Critical as a result. After that, the Parivir because if those nasty blade attacks that he possesses. Well, after that, you might want to take out the White Mage because of the curing he will have. Next, well there is a Cannoneer and a Defender, so you really need to take a pick and shoot them down. The best method of attack is fast and deadly units, and long ranged units to disable that Hunter. After that, the mission is quite a breeze. --==Mission E4-06 ~ From 'Cross the Sea==-- "I've penned a reply to my dear friend Riddim 'cross the sea. I seek a courier to deliver it to her.

Law Forbidden : > 100 Damage Dealing > 100 Damage is forbidden. They might be small, but these Moogles are hard to beat. They aren't all that smart, but what they lack in brains, the more than make up for in brawn. You'd expect otherwise. Anyway, the Moogle Knight uses Moogle Lance, Moogle Rush, Charmshot and Counter. The Fusilier uses Confushot, Charmshot, Blindshot and Silenceshot. The Thief uses Steal Gil, Fireshot, Iceshot and Boltshot, and also has counter. The Black Mage uses Fira, Thundara and Blizzara, the Tinker uses Red Spring, Blue Screw and Green Gear, and finally, the Animist uses Sheep Count, 100% Wool and Cuisine, the best and most broken healing ability of the game. Pardon my rant, but why is a thief being used in a police force? What? Anyway, given what you are facing here, you want to take down the enemy Tinker first, if you aren't feeling lucky. Take that sucker first, then we need to take down the Fusilier since both give a fair amount of debuffs. Make sure the Animist doesn't get near anyone so he can't use Cuisine to keep him in bay, and while you are doing that, take down the Black Mage and the Moogle Knight. Finally with the Thief and the Animist left, you can take them both down and end this mission. --==Mission E4-08 ~ Wall of Flame==-- "A connoisseur of fine cuisine is always in search of the next great meal.

Anyway, you face 4 Behemoths and a Reaver, and that surely isn't a good sign, they are damn strong, and that makes it a hard battle. The problem is that phyiscally, they are too hard to beat. Magick makes it hard since your users will get hit from the frontlines from them. You need a good combination, Hunters are needed here, as well as healers since the Reaver and the Behemoths can dish out a fair amount of damage, and by fair, I mean a lot. Just try to bring in your best users, and make the most out of the situation. You might want to back attack them as well if you can, and ice magick is a nice touch here. It is up to you how you complete this mission but it is a hard physical one. As a bonus for completion, you get a Tanned Beast Hide. --==Mission E4-09 ~ 'Cross the Sea==-- "My dear friend Meena has moved 'cross the sea. I seek a courier to deliver a letter to her.

Law Forbidden : Piercing Weapons Attacks with rapiers and spears are forbidden. Ok, if they meant group of parivirs as 1, that is a pretty good group. The law shouldn't be a problem, just rule out some Viera and Dragoon units. The Parivir has Hoarfrost Blade, Fire Veil, Water Veil, Reflex and Doublehand, but that isn't the same as dual wield. The Fighter has Wild Swing, Air Blast and Back Draft, MP Shield as reaction and Doublehand. Come on, not even an Air Render? The Master Monk has Pummel, Dark Fist, Withering Strike and Cross-Counter, and to top that off, he uses Counter and Death Strike. Finally, the Berserker uses Scream, Furore, Ground Shaker, Smite of Rage, Counter and Charged Attacks. This isn't a very hard mission, you outnumber the enemy, but their levels are slightly above the rank level. That isn't a problem. Well, take down the Master Monk if you use counter, because Cross-Counter isn't going to be painless so to speak. Then, the Parivir for the debuffs, and left with the pathetic Fighter and the pathetic Berserker, take them all out. --==Mission E4-11 ~ Crying Eyeball==-- "You're not going to believe this, but I saw tons of these eyeball monsters coming out of this old mineshaft ... and they were headed for Goug!

Law Forbidden : HP < or = 20 Having less than 20 HP is forbidden. Well, here you are facing all kinds of eyeball monsters. You have the floating eyes, the plagues, the ahrimans and the bloody orbs. The problem here is that you can't defeat all foes. You can defeat as many as you can but more will pop up. All you can do here is to sit tight and fight for three rounds to hold off the enemy units until your backup arrives in order to take them down. The hold point is that no enemy unit gets past the barrel. From there, you can fend off the enemy, and given that you need the Goug Watch for this quest, it is relatively easy, you should be in your 40's at least, and these guys are only in their 30's at most. At the end of the third round, and if no one has got pass the barrel, you win. --==Mission E4-12 ~ Time to Act==-- "The parivir driven out of Goug are holding a grudge, kupo.

Law Forbidden : Harming Moogles Actions that harm moogles are forbidden. Well, this mission might require a lot of restarting and hell of a lot of luck, this mission along took me an hour in total on the train, swearing at my DS. You are only allowed one unit here, and I suggest a hard hitter but with the ability to cure and the ability to move fast. My choice was Adelle, as a Heritor, with the Tiptaptwo with the speed boost, as well as the Ultima Summon. I have my bets hedged. Also, there are some problems on the map. The Tinker will, more often than not, use the Red Spring ability and stuff up, or the Green Gear. Next, if the Sniper decides to double shot from the side, the Black Mage, that is almost always a game ender. Next, the Arcanist is more or less going to target your units with the Lvl. 3 Dark ability. That being said, you need some luck to go your way. First of all, you want the Fusilier to silence the Illusionist and you want the Tinker to successfully use the Red Spring ability. When you have the chance, you want to target the Sniper or the Arcanist first. The Parivir is going to be dangerous if he gets too close. The Ninja isn't much of a threat, he is going to be using the Veils a lot though. For a support character, you want a healer and a damage taker, as well as a damage doer. You want someone who can heal, so White Magick as a second ability or Ultima as the Scion will help. You want to dish out a fair amount of damage, better if ranged, such as Aurablast. My Adelle, well, Heritor, using Tiptaptwo. That boosts the speed to about 117, which was nice. Using Pugilism, Ultima, Ribbon and such. Tinker used Red Spring and Green Gear to my advantage, rushed and took out the Sniper. When back to the cross point, and blocked the Parivir. Let the team rip into the Illusionist and Arcanist, boost up the Smash Gauge, let rip Ultima. That wounded the Parivir, Ninja and killed the Arcanist. The killed the Parivir and Ninja last. Done. Don't worry, it isn't just you and your skills if you lose this mission several times, I've head gos where the enemy killed a Goug Watch member before I could even move. That was really annoying, and that happened more than once. --==Mission E4-14 ~ Drawn Bridge==-- "I'm in charge of Dow Bridge, a drawbridge linking Goug with Kthili Sands. The bridge mechanism is one of the great feats of mooglecraft! The thing is, I've run into a little problem ... I lost the key required to operate it!

Law Forbidden : Items Items are Forbidden Well, this is another Item Recovery mission for you to play around with, this is a mission where you need to find a single key out of all those nice little sparkles, but you have some competition here, some Mimics and a Magick Pot. The Mimics will be weak against every single element there is that you can think of and more, while the bad thing is that the Magick Pot will absorb all those element. And don't think of killing all the enemy units that you have in your sight, they will just bring in more reinforcements so just search and get out of here. However, there is one good thing about killing all the enemy units and letting more units to pop out, the mimics here will give a lot of good loot, a lot of high level loot, so if you want some, you can try your luck I suppose. Anyway, when this is done, you can easily get from Goug to Kthili Sands as the new bridge that was previously locked is now unlocked, which makes for quick transportation for your clan. --==Mission E4-15 ~ Inspiration or Perspiration?==-- "I seek a guide to guide me to Neslowe Peak.

Law Forbidden : Instruments and Books Attacks with Instruments and Books are Forbidden. This is a fire only map for your enemies, so you really want to use something called ice. Bring all the Ice users, and some Hunters to make sure there is a nice balance. There is a Red Marshmallow with Unction and Merge, as well as Fira. This isn't a hard target. The Bomb, well, there are three of them and two of them have Self-Destruct. Gotta feel sorry for the final one, not having the defaulty skill. All will have Flame Attack, per standard. All will have Fira, except for the one without Self-Destruct, who will have Firaga. Guess that guy took magick lessons instead. The Drakes will have Fire Breath and Mermerize, which is kind of standard. One will have Expose Weakness and the other will take Mighty Guard. You will find that the Bombs are going to be annoying, they will constantly heal themselves. Remember, while you do need to defeat all the enemy foes in this battle, which is quite easy with you use Ice weapons and abilities, but you want to finish this battle really quick, after round 3, the earth at the volcano will rumble, and at the end of round three, and from then onwards, the ground will shake, dealing damage to all units on the battlefield. ************** **SECTION E5** ************** --==Mission E5-01 ~ The Dig==-- STORYLINE MISSION --==Mission E5-06 ~ Through Another's Eyes==-- STORYLINE MISSION --==Mission E5-08 ~ A Bride for Montblanc==-- "My Dear Montblanc, I have long admired you from afar, and now I wish to see you and profess my feelings in person.

Law Forbidden : Harming Viera Actions that harm Viera are forbidden. This is a battle against Al-Cid, but you only want to defeat Al-Cid and not his escort of Viera which seems to be all of the enemy units that you are going to face. Lets follow the law and defeat Al-Cid. This mission is easy, Al-Cid doesn't actually attack you, he will only cover his female companions and that is about all he does, he really doesn't even lay a finger on you. So, you really want to target all your firepower at him to knock him down and finish this mission. If you really want to take the Viera on, you are going to fight an uphill battle. The Red Mage uses Cure, Protect, Shell, Doublecast, Protect, Tranq, Shell and Leap. The Green Mage uses Oil, Sleep and Ifrit. The Spellblade uses Stun and Maim Blade, the Fencer uses Swarmstrike, Featherblow and Piercing Blow, and finally, the Sbniper uses Doubleshot, Beso Toxico and Death Sickle. Told you it was an uphill battle. Just take down Al-Cid and finish this mission, it is much easier on you, since the enemy will always overlevel you here, regardless of your unit's level. --==Mission E5-16 ~ The Ritual==-- STORYLINE MISSION ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [2.04] Other Missions After a while, you will encounter enemy clans that aren't friendly, and other missions that will occur all over the place. Most will be repeated. Many are unlocked after missions, other after events like auctions. Each area will have their own naturally unlocked monster set, and these will be marked as such. They appear randomly, or maybe a set pattern. Most of these are naturally unlocked, the time in which they appear are going to be random, but some appear to have set months. These missions are a good way of earning some gil and nice pieces of loot without having to use those pub missions and good sources of ability points. ************************ **An Elegant Encounter** ************************ "The time has come and hone, yet he remains ... unseen."

Well, that is a lot of people, that doesn't really help. Pirate of the skies? Well, isn't that a Sky Pirate? And a companion, who is an enchanting lady? Well, judging Sky Pirate is going to be Vaan, that means the lady is Penelo, so we need to look for them. And just right then, with all the timing in the world, Penelo walks in and asks for Vaan. Seems like she knows this Al-Cid guy. Meeting? What, please explain. It seems that Vaan is in the Keep north of the Aerodrome at the Keep, so I guess that is where you need to go. Penelo will want to join your clan, but you cannot keep her away. Guess she is in. We head to the Keep for the mission of "Where Could He Be?" **************** **A Hard Place** **************** "Docile in appearance, these creatures fiercely attack those who stray too close.'

Well, that is a stupid law. Anyway, this is actually going to be more of a Magick fight. You are going to face 3 Great Tortoises, 2 Toughskins, the evolved form of the Great Tortoise, and an Adamantitan, the evolved form of the Toughskins. Just think of the Swordbiter from the old game, you know, the turtles that are impossibly hard to kill. Anyway, the problem is the law. You can't bunch up, so it makes it a bit less effective in terms of healing and such. Also, these turtles are hard to fight. They have Resonate, which makes all the bladed users useless with disable. They also have headbutt, which can immobilze your troops. Your first action is to kill off all the green turtles. They are the weaker ones and that allows you more time until the bigger turtles come down for a fight. In order of importance, take down the purple turtles. They have the most annoying skill, Resonance. That makes all your blade weapon users disabled. Make sure you use mages and ranged weapons instead. Matra Magick from the Yellow turtle is quite a dangerous skill when you are low on MP, but it is learnable with your blue mages. Turtles also have munch, which basically means they eat your equipment, not nice when you have some rare expensive stuff. Its not as bad when they eat some leather clothing. Make sure your units aren't grouped up together, and that should ensure you get the law bonus. It is a bit unreasonable when you are immobolised when the enemy decides to melee attack you, but there is pretty much nothing you can do about that. At the end of this tedious mission, you get 5130 Gil, as standard, 1 piece of Adamantite, 1 bottle of Foul Liquid and 99 Clan Points, along with the 30 ability points of the mission. If you can get through this without losing a member, good work. ********************** **A Moment's Respite** ********************** "Sometimes, kupo, it pays to take things easy. Kupo-po..." Located - Fluorgis, Fluorgis Unlocked - Complete "Where Could He Be?" A nice cutscene with Hurdy, Vaan and Penelo and we get told of some good old friends from FFTA. Nono, which is Hurdy's Brother, is mentioned of course, and some more talk, but thats about it. ****************** **Champ's Reward** ****************** "Local products for the Champions of Moorabella, Clan " Located - The Galerria Deep, The Galerria Deep Unlocked - Become Area Champion of Moorabella, via Auctions You get a nice random product from the locals of the area. It appears to be a random piece of loot. I got some Strange Liquid, what did you get? ********************* **Chita's Weaponers** ********************* "A group of weaponsmiths headed by the incomparable Chita himself." Located - Orchise Snowfields, The Aldanna Range Unlocked - Control The Aldanna Range via Auctions, During Plumfrost Your Mission Objective - Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden - Instruments Attacks with instruments and books are forbidden. This is an all Bangaa Clan, and you cannot pay money to hope that this just goes away. There are 3 Warriors, 1 Bishop, 1 Master Monk and their leader, Chita, who is a Gladator. This is going to be an easier mission, with you actually being able to attack with magick and go melee. They do have a height and level advantage over you here. The Bishop is going to be the healer of the team, so it is best that you target that little Bangaa out first. Don't worry, he has a slow speed so that he doesn't get his turns very often. The Gladiator is going to be a problem as well, he is good at dishing out a lot of damage in a very short period of time. After those two are down, the Master Monk is next. Although he is armed with a stick, his abilities are very powerful, and not to be messed with. The three warriors should be last, but you might want to take them down a bit faster since they do have the Rend spells, which will weaken your attack and magick power. Area of effect spells such as Black Magick are the best here, since melee units tend to group up on your own units. Even though there is a friendly unit in the middle of a bunch of enemy units, the damage dealt to the enemy is greater than the damage done to you. Beating this challenge will net you 3590 Gil, 2 Earth Stones, 70 Clan Points and 30 Ability Points. Not bad, but it could be better. *************** **Detitlement** *************** "The Wizard D'Tidle is said to be able to cleanse a clan of its title." Located - Simoon Dunes, Kthili Sands Unlocked - Access to Fluorgis Continent This basically removes the clan title that you have, if you don't want it and can't be bothered to clear it using a clan trial. It doesn't cost any money but it does clean the entitlements via the title. **************** **Fey Mischief** **************** "Faeries that live deep in the woods. They delight in causing mischief." Located - Muskmallow Field, Targ Wood Unlocked - Naturally Unlocked Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Targeting Self Abilities that target yourself are forbidden. The clan you are facing here is going to contain 1 Banshee, 2 Sprites, 1 Chocobo, 1 Baknamy and 1 Dreamhare. The problem with this location is that there are traps all over the place, making it hard to move without losing health. The Baknamy is quite strong, the tank of the team, while the Chocobo, with it's Choco Cure is going to be a very annoying healer. The Dreamhare is going to be the buffer for the team. Your main problem is going to be your enemy Sprites on the field because of their Meteor attack. It causes heavy damage whilst from a range. They alsop have the White Wind, which is a great healer. A good clan for the Blue Mages to get some skills off, this clan is a very good practice clan, but be careful, it is quite easy to lose to these guys. Defeating them gets you 99 Clan Points, 30 Ability Points, 1 Gimble Stalk, 1 Small Feather, 1 Soft Cotton and 5130 Gil. Nice. *********************** **Formidible Strength** *********************** "Monsters indigenous to the Aldanna Range. They attack wildly and with terrifying force." Located - The Aldanna Range, The Aldanna Range Unlocked - Naturally Unlocked Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Reaction Abilities Reaction Abilities are forbidden. This law is a bit easier to deal with, and the units are all beasts. You are facing 2 Zaghnals, 2 Headless, a Brown Chocobo and probably a new monster to you, the Loup-Garou, the evolved form of the Zaghnal. You really want to bring in users who can use wind powers because the majority of the enemies you are facing here are going to be weak to wind attacks. Of course, the simple solution is to bring in units who can all use Sidewinder without a problem since Sidewinder really does deal a lot of damage to monsters, especially from the back. You really want to deal with the Loup-Garou first, because even through his skills are no different to that of the surrounding Zaghnals, odds are that he is packing more heat and more firepower than the Zaghnals are really packing. After that, you really need to take down the Headless, not because they are strong, it is because that they are closer to your units than you would really like. They are using the normal skill set, they aren't really that powerful at this stage anyway. Next, you have the Zaghnals. They are quite heavy hitters, so you might need a white mage for all this sustained damage that you would have taken at this point. Finally, the Chocobo, because it is weak. This is a good time to get a brown Chocobo is you want one, either for your Chocobo Knight or for a mission. After this battle, you get 99 Clan Points, 5130 Gil, 1 X Star Fragments and 30 Ability points as standard. ******************** **Graszton Seaways** ******************** "A shipping house operating out of Graszton. Its members are a burly bunch of seamen." Located - Graszton, Graszton Unlocked - Control Graszton Via Auctions, During Plumfrost Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Targeting Adjacent Units Actions targeting adjacent tiles are forbidden. You can actually avoid this situation by agreeing to keep quiet and you still get the reward, but that isn't any fun now is it? The law is quite annoying, you cannot melee attack, so you need to use some ranged abilities as well as ranged weapons and magick. You are going to fight a Beastmaster, an Archer, a Berserker, a White Monk, a Warrior and a Thief. How is a moogle thief possibly a burly seaman? He doesn't look too burly to me. The Thief will have some Black Magick, in detail, Thunder and Thundara, was well as loot and gil steal. The Beastmaster has Black Magick as well, with Blizzard and Blizzara. The Archer will have Cupid, Take Aim and Lightning Strike. It is Cupid that I'm most worried about. The Berserker will have some Brutality skills, Thundara and Tsunami. The White Monk has Earth Render AND Water and Aero skills. The Warrior has some rending powers as well. Take down the mages first, they are going to be the most annoying, and that means the Thief, the Beastmaster and the Berserker. The Archer also needs to go, it is quite hard to deal with cupid and his powerful bow. The two Bangaa can be taken down last, they arne't as powerful, or as scary for that matter. You get 3560 Gil, 2 Water Stones and 58 Clan points if you complete this successfully. If you go into battle, you get a Remedy as well as all of those above. *************** **House Bowen** *************** "A famous headhunting clan. They'll go after anything with a price on its head." Located - Sant D'alsa Bluff, Sant D'alsa Bluff Unlocked - Beat House Bowen in an Auction, during Plumfrost Again, you get to choose if you want to fight the enemy or not, it is complete up to you, and they word it nicely though. They are a powerful clan, and nice as target practice. Your Mission Objective - Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Actions by Seeq Seeq may only move and perform basic attacks. I think the game is tried of me using Mirror Items to finish the mission quickly. Anyway, there is Bowen, a Fighter, Tweigel, who is an Illusionist, Veis, the Assassin and Loa, the Ravager. In all actuality, they aren't a very powerful clan. Bowen doesn't actually have Air Render or Aurablast, only Back Draft, Rush and Wild Swing, which are the melee attacks. Tweigel, the Illusionist is only using Wild Tornado and Stop. Loa, the Ravager is using Overpower and Tenacity and Veis is using Ague, Doubleshot and Vanish. Given those skills, you should take down the Assassin first, since she can vanish and sneak around. Then, you have Bowen, Loa and Tweigel to take out. Tweigel should be next, as an Illusionist, he can dish out some damage when he has the MP to cast the spells. Then, defeat Bowen and Loa, they aren't all that powerful, but they leveled with you. The most important thing here is that you need to look in the black urn. That contains valuable things, and for me, it contained the Ragetsu-denbu, which teaches you Dual Wield. This is very valuable if you don't look, you lose a valuable weapon. At the end of the battle, you get 5130 Gil, 2 Fire Stones, 90 Clan Points and 30 Ability points, and if you did battle over doing nothing, you get a X Potion to boot. *********************** **I Got a Bad Feeling** *********************** "There is a fowl smell upon the air..." Located - Flutegrass Bluff, Baptiste Hill Unlocked - After Throw Down is Completed Your Mission Objective : Defeat Klesta! Law Forbidden : Opportunity Commands Opportunity Commands are forbidden. Right after Throw Down, you have the chance to hunt down Klesta again when he is wounded, even though the members of House Bowen told you not to, and you might even die, well, there is a judge here, so you won't. If you want to finish this, there is something you need to note, you are only allowed to bring three units, and he has more health, and is on full health might I add. This is going to be a hard battle. When you think you are screwed, someone appears, House Bowen. The members from the Throw Down battle will come back and save you, just in time. You now have 7 units against 1, the odds are now starting to balance towards you this time. Klesta now has Fortify instead of Peck, but Devour, the massive attack, is still there, something you don't want. Again, the Illusionist and Bowen himself cannot die, they will always remain on 1 HP not matter how many times Klesta uses Devour on them. You can finish it off like last time, but that bird just doesn't give up on you, and again, it will fly away. At least you got some good experience out of this, and if you didn't get any opportunity commands, you get a nice judge bonus as well. Not that bad. Your reward for finishing this mission is 1470 gil, 3 Mirror Scales, 4 Yellow Liquid and 34 Clan Points. ***************** **Just Desserts** ***************** "Distorting their outward appearance, these creatures can hide themselves with ease." Located - The Ruins of Delgantua, The Ruins of Delgantua Unlocked - Naturally Unlocked Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Non-Elemental Effects Use of non-elemental weapons and abilities is forbidden. A very strange law, but we are fighting some strange enemies. You are going to face a lot of flan here. You face 2 Bloody Orbs, 1 Red Marshmallow, a Yellow Jelly, a Ice Flan and finally, a White Pudding, which is pretty tough. Magick is going to be your best option here, since you are going to need to kill them via elemental attacks to stay within the law. You really want to target the Marshmallow, Flan and Jelly first because all three of them, as well as having their -ra and -ga spells, they will make mince meat of your units with their Geomancy powers as well. This is seriously dangerous for your your units, and White Mages are going to work overtime. Bring in all your magick users, changing classes if you need to, change weapons if you need to. Or, just break the law since it is the easiest method that you have in this mission. If you do, bring in Hunters to sidewinder the jellys in the back. After the Flans, you want to take down the White Pudding, who happens to have a Ribbon if you are really interested. Irony that the Pudding isn't actually white, its more of a pink/purple colour. And finally, the two Orbs, since they aren't the dangerous ones here. You need some serious firepower here. Long ranged units are going to be a good selling point here, especially Fusiliers with their elemental attacks and their long range. Magick users are needed to easily remove of the Flan via their elemental effects. Other than that, you need luck. For this jellyful battle, you get 99 Clan Points, 30 Abilities points, 5130 Gil and 1 X Cockatrice Skin. ***************** **Jytras Pirata** ***************** "A powerful crime syndicate in east Jylland. It influences reaches far and wide." Located - Gaol's March, Aisenfield Unlocked - Defeat Jytras Pirata in an Auction Again, this is another pay 5000 gil or you need to fight them. Well, I'm not handing gil over, so lets fight. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : > 100 Damage Dealing > 100 Damage is Forbidden. Ok, here you face a thief with Steal Gil, Loot Lvl. 4, Leg Shot, Arm Shot and Counter. The Dragoon uses Jump, Lancet and Bangaa Cry, and he also has Counter as well. The Scholar uses Shadow Shade Tome, Esunaga and Bio, but also has Blood Price which is most interesting. The Chocobo Knight has no skills for his job, but has Fira, Thundara, Blizzara as well as Counter and most annoyingly, Geomancy. The Viking uses Thundaga, Tsuname and Pickpocket and finally, the Hunter uses Sonic Boom, Advice, Vitals Shot and Unscarred. This isn't a hard mission, but the law might be a bit annoying if you are trying to follow the law. You might want to take the Chocobo Knight first before Geomancy decides to annoy the hell out of you and try to kill you while you are at it. The Thief is also a problem because Leg Shot and Arm shot will pretty much disable your troops to attack the enemy, so you might want to take care of him. Other than that, the rest aren't a problem, they are in fact, quite weak. At the end of this mission, you get 3680 Gil, 1 X Crusite Alloy, 1 X Elixir and 84 Clan Points. Not bad at all. ******************** **Kthili Surveyors** ******************** "A group that oversees the excavation of ruins in Kthili Sands." Located - Kthili Sands, Kthili Sands Unlocked - Unlocked Naturally, during Greenfire This is a choice of payment of 5000 gil or going into battle. 5000 gil for some funding? Sounds fishy to me. Your Mission Ojbecitve : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Being Robbed Having gil or items stolen is forbidden. Yep, its probably the most retarded law in the entire game. Anyway, you are going to face the standard 6 enemy team here, with 2 Thieves, one Moogle and the other Hume, a Viking, 2 Axebeaks and a Beastmaster. The two axebeaks have Scurry and Peck, the Beastmaster having the beast lore in, surprise surprise, Cockatrices. The Hume Thief has Steal Items, Steal Gil and Loot Lvl 4 as well as Throw. The Moogle version has Steal Items and Steal Gil, with Dagger Toss and Double Hand. And finally, the Viking has Pickpocket and War Cry, with Sten Needle Traps and Life Bond. This is an annoying battle since you can't be looted, yet there are three thieves running around. If you care about making sure that you don't break the law, you should knock out the three thieves, the two Thieves and the Viking. The Axebeaks aren't all that powerful, and all the Beastmaster is actually going to do is to try to give the Axebeaks an extra turn. Knock out the thieves, and then the Axebeaks, since they can do some damage, and finally, knock down the enemy Beastmaster to finish this annoying mission. You can make this less annoying with Safeguard or the Safeguard clan privilege that you can use. Also, there are traps, so be careful. For victory, you get a nice reward of 2890 Gil, 1 Tomato Stalk, 1 piece of Sweet Sap, and for the battle, you get a nice piece of Dark Matter. You also get 60 Clan Points and 30 Ability Points. **************** **Making Music** **************** "Go hunting for some strawood, the best there is for instruments." Located - The Zegrots Stones, Sant D'alsa Bluff Unlocked - After the Making Music Quest, before you Craft Item for Hurdy Your Mission Objective - Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden - Items Items are forbidden. Here, you are fighting a Sprite armed with Meteorite, another Sprite with Meteorite and Counter. A Lilith with Night, Hand Slap and Twister. A Dreamhare with War Dance and Hip Attack, another Dreamhare with Hip Attack only but has Blind and Silence and finally, a Banshee with Lvl. ? Holy and Petrifying Rattle. Your standard battle against monsters, you are probably going to use your Hunters here to make sure that the enemy stays dead. You might want to get rid of the Lilith and the Banshee first, since they have some decent attacks, but the rest are rather weak and easily removed from the battlefield. After the battle, you will obtain Flutegrass, and this is the only place where you can obtain this piece of loot. Failure to obtain this here will result you not obtaining it anywhere and you cannot craft the Shining Lute. You also get 52 Clan Points, 3080 Gil and 3 pieces of Rainbow Thread. ******************* **Master's Reward** ******************* "Local specialties for the Region Masters of Graszton, Clan " Located - Formo Block, Zedlei Forest Unlocked - Become Area Champion of Graszton, via Auctions Again, another random piece of loot for being the area champion from the nice locals. You get the Graszton Specialty, which was for me a Battlewyrm Carapace. ******************* **Master's Reward** ******************* "Local specialties for the Region Masters of Camoa, Clan " Located - The Boulderfall, Baptiste Hill Unlocked - Become Area Champion of Camoa, via Auctions Another random piece of loot from the area for being area champ, what nice locals. I got a shiny piece of Tyrant Hide, what did you get? ******************** **Master's Rewards** ******************** "Local specialties for the Region Masters of Moorabella, Clan " Located - Gateway to the Past, The Ruins of Delgantua Unlocked - Become Area Champ of Moorabella, via Auctions Again, you get some free piece of loot. Take it and enjoy. ******************* **Master's Reward** ******************* "Local specialties for the Region Master, Clan " Located - Gorday Citadel, Nazan Mines Unlocked - Become Area Champ of Fluorgis Take some loot and enjoy. You might be lucky, I got rare Ribbon since that is pretty rare. ******************* **Master's Reward** ******************* "Local specialties for the Region Masters of Goug, Clan " Located - Lava Run, The Neslowe Passage Unlocked - Become Area Champ of Goug Again, this is the final piece of loot that you can get for the controlling of the area. ***************** **One-Eyed Evil** ***************** "A monster that dwells deep in the dark. It springs on its prey from the shadows." Located - The Galerria Deep, The Galerria Deep Unlocked - Naturally Unlocked Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden: Copycat Using the same action as the preceding unit is forbidden. This is a more or less a monster fight. You are facing a Plague, the evolved form of the Ahriman, of which there are 2 of. There is a Black Chocobo is you want to take that, and a Giant Tortoise. There is also an out of place Yellow Jelly as well. This is an easy battle once you know how to deal with the Ahrimans and the Plague. You need to end your turn so that your units face a location where the Ahriman will not face it. That way, you will not be looking directly at the Ahriman and that will not allow the gaze effects to work. The important part is to take down the Ahrimans and the Plague first. They have Roulette, which has a chance to backfire, but you don't want that to happen to you because that means an automatic KO. Note that it is also a Blue Mage skill that you can learn with Reraise. The most important thing to note is that there are traps all over the place, especially those Sten Needles. Take down the Eyes first, then you have the Jelly, Tortoise and the Chocobo left over, and they can be taken out in any order. Your best move is to use Hunters and Sidewinder them to death, since Sidewinder is quite a powerful attack to use on monsters. Good luck here, because you need it to deal with Roulette. For winning this nasty battle, you get 99 Clan Points, which is quite a lot and says something about the rank. You also get 3150 Gil, 3 Dark Stones and 3 Sturdy Bones, along with the usual 30 Ability Points. ************* **Open Wide** ************* "A creature that will eat anything when it's hungry. The stench is revolting." Located - The Greenhall, Zedlei Forest Unlocked - Naturally Unlocked Your Mission Objective : Defeat all foes! Law Forbidden : Opportunity Commands Opportunity Commands are forbidden. There are 2 Green Chocobos here, a Malboro, a Great Malboro and a Hoppy-Bunny. Great, another monster battle, as if you don't get enough of these monster battles already. The Great Malboro packs Bad Breath, Goo and Putrid Breath. The Green Malboro uses Bad Breath, Eerie Sound Wave and Purify. The Green Chocobos use Choco Cure and Choco Esuna and finally, the Bunny decides to use War Dance, Hip Attack and Go-Go Dance. What you really want to do is to take down the Great Malboro and then the Malboro first. They are the biggest threat there is, their breath does stink and you don't want the debuffs that they give to your team, no, you really don't. Next, the Bunny, and finally, the Chocobo. You want to bring for this mission, someone who can use Wind Magicks because that is the best way to take down the enemy Malboros. A Black Mage user is also a good choice, that would make Lightning against Chocobos and Fire against the Bunny simple. Or you could just decide to bring in some Hunters. At the end of the battle, you get 4590 Gil, 1 X Dipreau Bronze, 1 X Rabbit Pelt, 1 X Malboro Vine, 99 Clan Points and 30 Ability Points. *************** **Prima Donna** *************** "A musical troupe of four women. Off the stage, they're excellent combatants." Located - Cannol West Barbican, Fluorgis Unlocked - Beat Prima Donna in Auction, Month of Plumfrost Wow, they will talk to you and offer you a reward for such a strong showing in the auction. If you decide to be noble and say that you don't need a reward, you get the reward. If you decide to say Gimme, you get a battle instead. Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Actions by Nu Mou Nu Mou may only move and perform basic attacks. There are 6 enemy units here. The Raptor is armed with Soul Crush, the Fencer is armed with Nighthawk as well as Earth Heal. The Spellblade is armed with Poison and Stun Blade, as well as Death Sickle. The Hunter is using Advice, with 4 Geomancer skills. And there are two devotees, who are useless. All you need to do is to defeat all foes. The Hunter definitely needs to go first, the power of the Geomancer skills will make your life a bit more difficult for you if you don't pay attention. The next one to go is probably the Spellblade, because Death Sickle isn't a skill that you want to be experiencing. After that, the Raptor and Fencer need to go, because they are leveled with your clan. In fact, all the enemy units are leveled with your clans, but the Devotees aren't, they are still on Level 1 and 2, which makes a 1 hit kill pretty easy. And no Nu Mous for this battle, you'll make do. This will end in 58 Clan Points for your clan, 2300 Gil, 2 Wind Stones and 30 Ability points as usual. You get a Eureka Crystal if you decide to head into battle and beat people up. *********************** **Seeker of Slaughter** *********************** "...?" Located - Way of Judgment, The Ruins of Delgantua Unlocked - After the Stone with No Name Quest, During Plumfrost Well that was interesting. A Seeq will examine Luso and count the amount of foes that he has currently defeated, or rather, KOed. If you have gotten over a nice total of 200, you will get 20 Knots of Rust and 5 Dark Matter. I wonder what that was all about? ******************** **Spirits of Nazan** ******************** "The spirits of those who died in the mines. They cling stubbornly to their former lives." Located - Nazan Mines, Nazan Mines Unlocked - Naturally Unlocked Your Mission Objective - Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden - Back Attack Attacking a unit from behind is forbidden. Well, you face a nice assortment of undead units, which include 1 Ghost, 2 Zombies, 1 Ghoul and 2 Tonberries, which reallt isn't undead, but it sort of counts. This is a part monster part undead battle, so you need to know what to bring. Hunters or any unit with Sidewinder is a good option since even though the Undead are undead, they are still monsters, so that is a bonus. Sidewinder is good against enemy Tonberries as well, so that is a nice bonus. Users of Holy Attacks and White Mages will have it easy with their ability to damage the undead via heal. You might want to kill the Tonberries first, their ability to Stalk might be a downer, but their Karma attack when they stalk someone has 100% accuracy and deals a nice 999 damage, which you really don't want. Kill them first. Then, kill all the undead, they are easy to kill. Make sure that you bring someone who can make sure that their graves disappear so they don't appear and revive themselves so you have to fight and defeat them again. At the end of the battle, you get 3150 Gil, 1 X Fiend's Blood and 99 Clan Points. A rather disappointing amount of gil and loot if you ask me. ******************** **The Camoa Braves** ******************** "A ruthless clan based in Camoa. Bangaa make up the majority of its members." Located - Adventurer's Rest, Camoa Unlocked - Control Camoa via Auctions, During Plumfrost Your Mission Objective - Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden - Targeting Adjacent Units Actions targeting adjacent tiles are forbidden. Another clan that wants 5000 gil for passing through the road, how about you guys taking a hike? And that Bangaa needs to have a shower, look at the festive purple crap on his face. And the law is seriously going to annoy you to high heaven, it basically means no attacks on tiles right next to you, and that means melee attacks. Looks like archers and mages are going to have a good time here. You are fighting 1 Thief, 2 White Monks, 1 Warrior, 1 Black Mage and 1 Moogle Thief (first was Hume) in this battle. One of the White Monks have Air Render, so you really need to fight carefully here. The mage is your first target, his magick attack deal MASSIVE amounts of damage. The Hume thief is also another good target, since he has Dual Wield, and two blades to match. That means whatever damage it says it is going to do, double it. The Monk with Air Render and Earth Render is going to be a pain, but the Bangaa are more or less going to go into melee. Don't worry, Counter won't break the law here. The Thieves, if you let them run around, will steal your items and your Gil, so don't let them have the chance to do so. Once you beat this clan of idiots, you get 2330 Gil, 2 Earth Stone, 2 Knots of Rust, 38 Clan Points and 30 Ability Points. Not bad, but the above team is a bit better. ************************* **The Luck-Stick Seller** ************************* "Pick up a luck-stick of your very own." Located - Cannol Keep, Fluorgis Unlocked - Read the Notice on the Luck Stick Seller, During Blackfrost Well, it costs you 1000 Gil for a luck-stick and you can redeem it during the month of Goldsun. We'll return to this later, during Goldsun when they decide to buy back. ************************* **The Luck-Stick Trader** ************************* "What does fortune hold for you when you trade in your luck-stick." Located - Cannol Keep, Fluorgis Unlocked - Read the Notice on the Luck Stick Seller, During Goldsun Well, this is the time where you redeem your luck stick for prizes. I might have a little section up on the possible prizes later. **************************** **The Strength of the Wolf** **************************** "Many a wayfarer has become an unwilling meal to these pack animals." Located - Caravan Trail, The Bisga Greenlands Unlocked - Naturally Unlocked Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Back Attack Attacking a unit from behind is forbidden. You are going to face 3 Werewolves, 2 Worgen and a Hellhound. This is another good place for you to practice, but again, there is a problem here, a massive height disadvantage. However, the enemy units are going to be melee units, allowing you to easily counter. Your first part of this is going to be the Werewolves, they are the closest to your units, as well as being high in HP and strength. Use wind to your advantage, and that means Air Render a lot of the time. Given that the enemy unit is going to be melee units, use your Mages and your Archers to dish out most of the damage, that would be the ideal attack. There are some chests here that you can go and collect, but it is rather out of the way, which makes life a bit harder. Also, these units have some decent strength, so be careful. For finishing this quest, you get 5130 Gil, 1 Blood-Darkened Bone, 1 Bat Tail and 99 Clan Points. ********************** **The Veluga Pirates** ********************** "These pirates stalk the seas near Graszton. More brawn than brain." Located - Vieg Southroad, Graszton Unlocked - Complete Pirate Attack, During Ashleaf Your Mission Objective : Defeat Lord Grayrl! Law Forbidden : Harming Moogles Actions that harm moogles are forbidden. The Pirates will demand 5,000 Gil from you, so offer to pay them 50, and off to battle we go. They should be thankful that they get 50 Gil, rather than me beating the living daylights out of them. You cannot harm Moogles, and there are two, a Tinker and a Moogle Knight. There is also a Hunter and 3 Vikings. The Moogle Knight is armed with Moogle Guard, Lance and Rush. The Tinker is armed with Green Gear and Silver Disc. The Hunter is armed with Advice only. All three Vikings are armed with Strongarm, Pickpocket and Thunder. Grayrl is armed with Thundara as well. Some replace one ability with War Cry. This is a painful mission, since you can't take out the tinker and the moogle knight, so you need to take the route that forces you to fight a Viking and a Hunter instead. All you need to do is to target Grayrl, he is the main threat that is here. And he is also your mark. All the enemies are in their early twenties in terms of level, so that makes it a bit easier. For beating this battle, you get a measly 42 Clan Points, 1670 Gil and 1 piece of Spruce. Also, you get the usual 30 Ability Points. You will also get this if you give them the 5000 gil, but thats a big waste. ************ **Wee Evil** ************ "Their small bodies belie their fierce tempers. They make for cunning and brutal foes." Located - Sun-Dappled Trail, Baptiste Hill Unlocked - Naturally Unlocked Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Actions by Moogles Moogles may only move and perform basic attacks. This law is discriminatory, so it must be repealed. Oh well, Moogles will have to sit out this challenge. There are 2 Hoppy Bunnies, 2 Baknamys, 1 Deadly Nightshade and 1 Luchorpan, the evolved form of the Baknamy. The problem with this mission is that there are 2 Bunnies that know the Go-Go Dance, which basically raises the speed, and casts HASTE on their allies, which will seriously head you underhanded. You can't cast HASTE for yourself without a Tinker here. The Bunnies are there to be taken out first, since they are going to cause some problems with HASTE. The Nightshade is taken out first because it is easily in range at the beginning. The Baknamy are slow, even with HASTE to get some moves, so leave them last, but you might want to take them down faster since they are more dangerous by draling more damage. The benefit of this clan, even with their haste, is that they don't have powerful weapons or armour to make this mission hard. Even with Attack + on their troops, they don't do much damage, a healer can easily take care of this damage without problems. However, they do get more turns than you with HASTE, so don't be too overconfident. By beating these monsters, you get 5130 Gil. 4 Ahriman Wings, 2 Cursed Coins and 3 Gikhet Lead, as well as 99 Clan Points and 30 Ability Points. A very good warchest in the end. ********************** **Where Could He Be?** ********************** "Vaan's been off at the ruins too long. Could you help me find him?" Located - Cannol West Barbican, Fluorgis Unlocked - After An Elegant Encounter Your Mission Objective : Protect Vaan and Defeat all Foes. Law Forbidden : Actions by Bangaa Bangaa may only move and perform basic attacks. Now that is a low blow, by anyone's standard. Guess what they said about the Seeq being cowards was very accurate. And when you start this battle, take a look at the level of the enemy you are facing, it is absolutely pathetic. Not even level 30 and you are facing a Berserker, a Gladiator, a Beastmaster, a Wolf and a Worgen. What a pack of losers, and they think that they can take on a Sky Pirate way more powerful than them. The Berserk uses Scream, Furore, Ground Shaker and Smite of Rage. Also seems to have Blink Counter. The Gladiator uses Rush, Wild Swing and Thunder Assault and also seems to have Counter. The Beastmaster has the Beast Lore of Wolf as you'd expect. And the wolves really don't have anything that is worth mentioning so this is an easy battle. Take down the Berserker and the Gladiator first, they are the ones that can actually do some damage here. And then the rest when you can be bothered to do so. At the end of this battle, we get a new addition to the Clan, Vaan, except you cannot turn him away either. More to do with Khamja as well, man, this Khamja thing is going to be big. Guess Luso really wasn't expecting Vaan to join eh? Don't worry, he isn't level 28 as he is in battle, he'll mysteriously gained some levels. **************** **With a Smile** **************** "A group of smiling travelers stand at the side of the path. Members of a clan?" Located - Zedlei Forest, Aldanna Range, Aisenfield, Nazan Mines, Ruins of Delgantua Unlocked - Complete Caravan Cry and Read Duelhorn Notice at Pub Your Mission Objective : Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden : Actions by Bangaa Bangaa may only move and perform basic attacks. Smiling or recruiters? I really can't tell anymore. You really don't have a choice but to go into battle since Luso kindly announces your clan name and that triggers this battle. There is a Black Mage with Blizzard, Blizzara and Blizzaga. The Time Mage is using Haste, as well as Water and Aero. The Illusionist is armed with Deluge, Rockfall and Wild Tornado. Another Black Mage is using Fire, Fira and Firaga and the final Black Mage uses, you guessed it, Thunder, Thundara and Thundaga. And to top things off, the White Mage uses Cura and Esuna, and even Flare. Well, this sect of Duelhorn is a massive Nu Mou Magick clan. This is a problem for your units if you really don't have high resistance units. And Reflect is going to be important here, even though some of the enemy units have Pierce. The First is going to be the Black Mage, especially the one in front of where you start, the Ice Black Mage. Make your way to disable and take out if possible, the Fire and Thunder Black Mages. When this is taken care of, you are left with the Illusionist, the Time Mage and the White Mage. Take down the Illusionist first because that little critter, by the time you have knocked out the three Black Mages, should have enough MP to do a lot of damage. Then, the Time Mage and finally, the White Mage. After this magickal battle, you will get a bonus of 2870 Gil, 3 X Tanned Beast Hide, 70 Clan Points and the usual 30 Ability points. ********************* **Zedlei Consortium** ********************* "A collective of barbarous seeq. Known for their strange and unusual crops." Located - Zedlei Forest, Zedlei Forest Unlocked - Control Zedlei Forest via Auctions, During Plumfrost Your Mission Objective - Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden - Piercing Wrapons Attacks with rapiers and spears are forbidden You can either fight them, or pay 5000 gil for "cheating" in the previous auction. Bunch of sore losers, I'll teach you why you shouldn't try to take my money. The enemy here are 3 Seeq Rangers, notorious for their traps, 1 Malboro, 1 Grenade and 1 Ice Flan. You are going to go without your Spears and Rapiers, but you seriously need a single weapon here, magick. The Flan and the Grenade are dangerous with their own brand of magick, and the Rangers are quite dangerous with their annoying traps that they set all over the place. The Flan's acid is danger, as well as the Malboros Bad Breath, they will grate status effects, making your fight that much harder. Stone is the worst effect that you will get, making sure your unit is out of the fight. Take down the Monsters first, they are the biggest threat. Given your starting position in the game, you get going to have your force split into two, each making sure they have the attack that targets the enemy weakness. Finishing this mission, you get 3770 Gil, 2 Wind Stone, 1 Handkerchief and 66 Clan Points, as well as 30 Ability points. Not a bad quest from a clan demanding some money off you. Located - Sage's Grove, Moorabella Unlocked - Same as Above Your Mission Objective - Defeat all Foes! Law Forbidden - Actions by Nu Mous Nu mou may only move and perform basic attacks. Here, there are 2 Rangers, 1 Berserker, a Malboro, 1 Blue Marshmallow and a Deadly Nightshade. This is an interesting battlefield, because you are going to be in front of a single row of two units. I hope you have some hunter slayers here, because you'll need it. They will break ranks fairly quickly, so you want to play catch up and smack them from the back to wipe them out. This is just a manic free for all, no real strategy is required here to take them all out. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [2.05] Quest to Heritor After you have completed "Through Another's Eyes" Quest for the story, you will find that you can get the Heritor job for Adelle. This all starts from the quest below and I'll take you through all the missions for the completion of Adelle's skills. ************** **The Search** ************** "If she wishes it, I will tell her of the other Gifted One..." Located - Lezaford's Cottage, The Aldanna Range Unlocked - After "Through Another's Eyes" Quest Complete Looks like Lezaford is home. This is important because this is the second chat between Lezaford and Adelle about the Gifted One. Lezaford tells Adelle to search for someone, someone the same as here, but he isn't sure whether he is alive or not. You need to search for Lennart. Sounds familiar? It should, it is the ability that Adelle had when she was a Heritor, against you, remember? That is the first part in the Heritor job. ********** **Gifted** ********** "A friend of the great mage, huh... So where is he?" Located - Overlook Rise, Zedlei Forest Unlocked - After completing "The Search" After a nice chat, you need to use Adelle, and Adelle only for a face off against the mysterious Lennart. Don't worry, he isn't that powerful. Your Mission Objective : Defeat Lennart Law Forbidden : Targeting Distant Units Actions targeting units two or more tiles away are forbidden. Lennart isn't all that hard, his level is in the 20's and he uses the Hunter skill set, as you can probably see, but the downside is that he also has the Lennart ability. But given that by this stage, Adelle is going to be at a high level, this isn't going to be a problem at all. Just defeat him, so get him to HP Critical or KO him. With this mission done, you will get the Heritor Job unlocked, and you get the Lennart skill for Adelle straight away, mastered and all. That is the first of the many abilities. After the battle, you also get 2050 Gil, 1 Lightwing Crystal and 36 Clan Points. ******************** **A Lost Companion** ******************** "My friend Shoofa is gone ... gone upon the snowy plain. I must find him. I must." Located - Fields of Dancing Snow, The Rupie Mountains Unlocked - After Gifted, read the Lost Friend notice at the pub.

I tell you, I thought I knew what a pain was when my old chocobo gave up the ghost, but this is something else! Somebody bring me a potion or something, quick! I hear you Clan Gully folks do good work, so how's about helping an old feller out? Now if you could send a pretty lass to do the job, well, that'd put the frost on my pumpkin.

I thought to rush to her rescue, of course, but ... well, when I came to, I looked around to find myself quite alone. I do hope nothing has befallen her. Did I mention these are dark times?"

You will be able to undertake them at any pub, and instead of costing Gil for the quest fee, you will be charged Clan Points, which are otherwise useless. These quests can be repeated over and over again, so don't worry about failure the first time round, but you might as well just reload a save. Once you are where the trial is meant to be held, you will be talking to a judge, who will issue a challenge. There are 5 difficulty levels for any trial, the higher level you attempt, the better the benefit in the end will be. What the judge says is what you will do, so make sure you read it and obey it, because sometimes, breaking a law will end it for you, while other times, it will be okay. It will also provide a source of clan privileges for clan. The system it works in the trials is the following: Level 1 - New Clan Privilege Level 2 - None Level 3 - Powerup Lvl 1, or Lvl 2 if you already had Lvl 1 Level 4 - None Level 5 - Powerup Lvl 3 if you had Lvl 2, Lvl 2 if you had Lvl 1, or Lvl 1 if you had none of them. Remember, CLAN TITLE CAN CHANGE, BUT THE BENEFITS OF A RANK WILL NOT BE CHANGED, THEY ARE STACKED. Therefore, you can be an Orator and a Dab Hands, your name will be Orator, but you get both the benefits of Orator and Dab Hands. ***************************** *Clan Trial - Adaptibility I* ***************************** Trial - Adaptibility I Rank - 10 Days - 20 Members - 6 Location - Camoa Require - Adaptibility - 1 Point Your Objective - Drive off all foes in X Rounds!

Instead, you want to make then Flan run away by experimenting with the little flan. The reason fighting is pointless is that magick is the best against the flan, but you can't use it. Tough. Watch the flan carefully, and see what they do. What they will do will pretty much determine exactly what you need to do. The flan can either Spin and Jump, Flop Backwards or Spin around. If it Spins and then Jumps, use Threaten If it Flops Backwards, sort of like Hands Up, use Surprise If it Spins Around, then use Stare That will pretty much be it. Watch the flan carefully, and after a flan leaves the battlefield, another will move, and this will happen until all the flans are outta here. ****************************** *Clan Trial - Adaptibility II* ****************************** Trial - Adaptibility II Rank - 20 Days - 20 Members - 6 Location - Moorabella Require - Adaptibility - 20 Points Your Objective - Drive off all foes in X Rounds Law Forbidden - Fire, Ice, Lightning Weapons and abilities that use fire, ice, and lightning are forbidden. --==Rank and Objectives==-- Contrivers - Drive Away 1 Enemy in 4 Turns You Get: +19 Adaptibility Points -8 Teamwork Points Quest Prices -2% Item Prices -2% Clan Privilege: Libra Survivalists - Drive Away 1 Enemy in 3 Turns You Get: +22 Adaptibility Points -9 Teamwork Points Quest Prices -4% Item Prices -4% Trailblazers - Drive Away 2 Enemies in 3 Turns You Get: +25 Adaptibility Points -10 Teamwork Points Quest Prices -6% Item Prices -6% Clan Privilege: Agility 1 = Agility 2 or Agility 2 = Agility 3 or Agility 3 = Agility 4 Executors - Drive Away 2 Enemies in 2 Turns You Get: +28 Adaptibility Points -11 Teamwork Points Quest Prices -8% Item Prices -8% Master Improvisers - Drive Away 3 Enemies in 2 Turns You Get: +31 Adaptibility Points -12 Teamwork Points Quest Prices -10% Item Prices -10% Clan Privilege: Agility 1 = Agility 2 or Agility 2 = Agility 3 or Agility 3 = Agility 4 or Agility 4 = Agility 5 There are 3 different enemies here, Red Marshmallows, Ice Flans and Yellow Jellies. Each of them have their own commands, so you really need to pay careful attention. Red Marshmallows If it Spins around and then Jumps, use Threaten If is Flops Backwards, like Hands Up, use Surprise If it just Spins around, then use Stare Ice Flans If it slides around to the sides, use Insult If it attempts to attack you, Slap it If it sticks its tongue out at you, try to Eat it Yellow Jellies If it decides to bend over, go ahead and Poke it If it jumps in the air, go and pat it nicely If it decides to collapse, go ahead and praise it. It is as easy as the previous mission, all you need to do is to figure out which one to use in each situation. Just watch the enemy flan carefully to see that it is going to plan and what counter you need. ************************* *Clan Trial - Aptitude I* ************************* Trial - Aptitude I Rank - 10 Days - 20 Members - 3 Location - Targ Woods Require - Aptitude - 1 Point Your Objective - Find the Winning Barrel in # Rounds!

The reason for the ice is that the enemy you are facing are all Bombs. Just ignore them, they might do a bit more damage if you don't fight back, but you really don't want to waste your valuable turns on the enemy. Read the Objective, you want the WINNING BARREL.

They are going to be packing one thing, SLOW! That will seriously hurt you if you constantly get hit. In fact, that is one of your biggest worries. Your second worry is Meteorites. Early on, they are going to do some serious damage, so be VERY CAREFUL. The law isn't all that helpful either. You cannot miss? Well, at least you don't need to uphold that law. If you did, you'd be pretty screwed for the battle, I can tell you that. Use a lot of area attacks, such as Black Mages, and Aurablast if you have access to it. Aurablast is going to be REAL handy here. Other than that, it is going to be hard. It isn't that uncommon that you end up with a single sprite left on low health by the end of Round 3 for Veterans level. You need some luck on your side, so good luck. Remember, Sidewinder and Hunters are your friends. ********************************** *Clan Trial - General Training II* ********************************** Trial - General Training II Rank - 25 Days - 20 Members - 6 Location - Baptiste Hill Require - Adaptibility, Aptitude, Negotiation, Teamwork - 40 Points Your Objective - Defeat all Foes in X Rounds!

This is quite a powerful monster to face, but if you manage to clear him before the reinforcements turn up, then you win the mission. Don't follow the law, this will make it very hard for you. The Reinforcements will probably force you to lose the battle, so take own this sucker fast. Use Mirror Items for a quick clear, or Hunters so a good job as well. Break the law, you can't win with the law. **************************** *Clan Trial - Negotiation 1* **************************** Trial - Negotiation I Rank - 10 Days - 20 Members - 6 Location - Camoa Require - Negotiation - 1 Point Your Objective - Uphold the Law and Defeat all Foes Law Forbidden - Targeting Distant Units Actions targeting units two or more tiles away are forbidden. --==Ranks and Objectives==-- Hagglers - Defeat 2 Enemies You Get: +3 Negotiation Points -3 Aptitude Points Quest Fees -1% Item Prices -1% Clan Privilege: Empowered Nu Mou Intermediaries - Defeat 3 Enemies You Get: +6 Negotiation Points -4 Aptitude Points Quest Fees -2% Item Prices -2% Barterers - Defeat 4 Enemies You Get: +9 Negotiation Points -5 Aptitude Points Quest Fees -3% Item Prices -3% Clan Privilege: Luck 1 = Luck 2 Brokers - Defeat 5 Enemies in 4 Turns You Get: +12 Negotiation Points -6 Aptitude Points Quest Fees -4% Item Pirces -4% Orators - Defeat 6 Enemies in 3 Turns You Get: +15 Negotiation Points -7 Aptitude Points Quest Fees -5% Item Prices -5% Clan Privilege: Luck 1 = Luck 2 or Luck 2 = Luck 3 This is a harder mission. You are going to be facing Dreamhares, the little fluffy bunnies that aren't so fluffy when they attack. With the law, only attacks where you are right next to the enemy are allowed. This however, is coupled in with a smart ability. If you are a magick user, you are going to have high resistance to Magick. With that, you can easily take down two units next to you if you target yourself. You will take little damage, but shock the enemies. The enemy has a massive weakness, the weakness to fire. Burn them up with your black mages to show them who's boss. However, they have the charm ability, and that can seriously cause problems with your troops since they will make them unable to fight for your side. They can also long range you to death, while you can't do the same. ***************************** *Clan Trial - Negotiation II* ***************************** Trial - Negotiation II Rank - 20 Days - 200 Members - 6 Location - Moorabella Require - Negotiation - 20 Points Your Objective - Uphold the Law and Defeat all Foes!

All you need to do is to take out all the enemy Deadly Nightshades to win the battle, and they are quite easy to kill, but the law is the problem here. You cannot end the turn next to a unit, and that includes enemy units, so your ranged units are important here. You want to use melee units that you can ranged abilities, magick users and range units, in particular, the Hunters with their Sidewinder attacks. Sure, you can bring melee units where they have Blink Counter, but in the case the enemy misses, you are in a bit of trouble. Easy mission, well if you seriously overlevel the enemy anyway. ************************* *Clan Trial - Teamwork I* ************************* Trial - Teamwork I Rank - 10 Days - 20 Members - 6 Location - Camoa Require - Teamwork - 1 Point Your Objective - Upload the Law and Defeat all Foes!

Your enemy here are several Level 10 Mimics. And boy are they easy to kill. They are weak against all elements, thats right, all eight elements they are weak against, making them prime targets for Magick. They are quite weak, so you can get just get a level advantage over them and beat the crap out of them. They have their Scissors attack, which is basically a Thunder attack on your troops, so tread carefully. Don't worry, you're melee attacks aren't banned, so long as you don't use abilities that don't use MP. ************************** *Clan Trial - Teamwork II* ************************** Trial - Teamwork II Rank - 20 Days - 20 Members - 6 Location - Moorabella Require - Teamwork - 20 Points Your Objective - Upload the Law and Defeat all Foes!

Your enemy are chocobos, the yellow type, so this is a good place to finish the rancher's request. All these chocobos have Regenerate, so a little more damage might be needed. The easy part is that there are all monsters, so either use Water on them, or even better, sidewinder them to their pretty death. Mount a HP Critical Chocobo with a Chocobo Knight so that you get a free and rather weak chocobo for your team. Don't worry, these chocobos are so stupid. They heal and Barrier my units. I thought this was a battle. ************************************ *Clan Trial - Aptitude-Adaptibility* ************************************ Trial - Aptitude-Adaptibility Rank - 15 Days - 20 Members - 6 Location - The Galerria Deep Require - Aptitude, Adaptibility - 10 Points Your Objective - Gather the Shimmering Lights in X Rounds Law Forbidden - Ranged Weapons Attacks with bows, greatbows, guns, hand-cannons, and cards are forbidden. --==Rank and Objectives==-- Travelers - Collect 3 lights in 4 Turns, 3 Enemies You Get: +7 Aptitude Points +5 Adaptibility Points -4 Negotiation Points -3 Teamwork Points Clan Privilege: Debuff Resistance 1 Prospectors - Collect 3 lights in 3 Turns, 3 Enemies You Get: +13 Aptitude Points +11 Adaptibility Points -6 Negotiation Points -4 Teamwork Points Clan Privilege: Smash Gauge Bonus 1 Pioneers - Collect 4 lights in 4 Turns, facing 4 Enemies You Get: +19 Aptitude Points +17 Adaptibility Points -8 Negotiation Points -5 Teamwork Points Clan Privilege: Smash Gauge Bonus 1 = Smash Gauge Bonus 2 Voyagers - Collect 4 lights in 3 Turns, facing 4 Enemies You Get: +25 Aptitude Points +23 Adaptibility Points -10 Negotiation Points -6 Teamwork Points Clan Privilege: Smash Gauge Bonus 1 = Smash Gauge Bonus 2 or Smash Gauge Bonus 2 = Smash Gauge Bonus 3 or Smash Gauge Bonus 1 Master Explorers - Collect 5 lights in 3 Turns, facing 5 Enemies You Get: +31 Aptitude Points +29 Adaptibility Points -12 Negotiation Points -7 Teamwork Points Clan Privilege: MP Channeling You really need to have fast movement users here to finish and win this mission. You need to gather the shimmering lights, but there is a catch. After you have caught one of the lights or a round ends, the lights will be randomised again, so you really need to spread out all your troops and have some good luck here. The enemies that you are faacing here are Flan, so you might want to complete this mission later on when you can take on such enemies without suffering too much. Also, the amounts of lights will decrease as your capture more and more of them, so by the last light, it can be anywhere, so spread out your team or suffer the consequences. *************************************** *Clan Trial - Adaptibility-Negotiation* *************************************** Trial - Adaptibility-Negotiation Rank - 15 Days - 20 Members - 6 Location - Graszton Require - Adaptibility, Negotiation - 10 Points Your Objective - Upload the Law and Survive X Rounds Law Forbidden - Harming the Weak Actions that harm a lower level unit are forbidden. --==Rank and Objectives==-- Followers - Survive 2 Turns against 4 Monsters You Get: +7 Adaptibility Points +5 Negotiation Points -4 Teamwork Points -3 Aptitude Points Quest Fees -1% Item Fees -1% Clan Privilege: Bonus Gil 1 Compromisers - Survive 2 Turns against 6 Monsters You Get: +13 Adaptibility Points +11 Negotiation Points -6 Teamwork Points -4 Aptitude Points Quest Fees -2% Item Fees -2% Clan Privilege: Bonus Gil 1 = Bonus Gil 2 or Bonus Gil 1 Outriders - Survive 3 Turns against 6 Monsters You Get: +19 Adaptibility Points +17 Negotiation Points -8 Teamwork Points -5 Aptitude Points Quest Fees -3% Item Fees -3% Clan Privilege: Debuff Resistance 1 = Debuff Resistance 2 or Debuff Resistance 2 = Debuff Resistance 3 or Debuff Resistance 1 Catalysts - Survive 3 Turns against 6 Monsters You Get: +25 Adaptibility Points +23 Negotiation Points -10 Teamwork Points -6 Aptitude Points Quest Fees -4% Item Fees -4% Clan Privilege: Bonus Gil 1 or Bonus Gil 1 = Bonus Gil 2 or Bonus Gil 2 = Bonus Gil 3 Master Intercessors - Survive 3 Turns against 6 Monsters You Get: +31 Adaptibility Points +29 Negotiation Points -12 Teamwork Points -7 Aptitude Points Quest Fees -5% Item Fees -5% Clan Privilege: Non-Elemental Attacks This is a problematic mission if you overlevel the enemy, which increases in level as you choose a higher rank. If you can hurt the enemy, this is a simple mission, kill all the cockatrices and be done with it. If you cannot, then all you have to do is to block both the entrances to your starting position, the entrances that are two tiles wide. Block them with high HP units that cannot attack back, so you sit there and take the damage, while the leftover two units sit and heal. This is because you don't want to break the law. *********************************** *Clan Trial - Negotiation-Teamwork* *********************************** Trial - Negotiation-Teamwork Rank - 15 Days - 20 Members - 6 Location - The Bisga Greenlands Require - Negotiation, Teamwork - 10 Points Your Objective - Uphold the Law and Defeat all Foes in X Rounds!

All you need to do is to kill some Tonberries, which isn't a hard feat, but need to uphold the law, so there are no magick users here. Elemental attacks do absolutely nothing to the Tonberries, so you need to long range them and whilst bombarding the Tonberries, you can easily slip in your fast melee units to hit the Tonberries. You want to avoid having the enemy in HP Critical since they have quicken, or you could just slip in a Ranger and Mirror Item them both to death. ******************************** *Clan Trial - Teamwork-Aptitude* ******************************** Trial - Teamwork-Aptitude Rank - 15 Days - 20 Members - 6 Location - The Aldanna Range Require - Teamwork, Aptitude - 10 Points Your Objective - Examine the Magick Urn X Times in Y Rounds!

You definitely need a White Mage here, or two, to make sure that they have Raise at the ready. That is going to be needed if those Ahriman use Roulette. Again, you need to spread out your units. Once the urn is examined or the Round ends, the urn decides to disappear and move to a new location, so that means spreading out your units is key. Have your spread out units which are on idle, wait, that way, they get their turn sooner than later, which is rather handy. You may need to reset the game several times since the jar appear randomly and might hate you. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [3.02] Recruitment There are two possible ways to recruit new members for your clan, that aren't special characters. The first is the Clan Mates quest, or through the random cycle of months where you look for characters. The first is the Clan Mates quest. Look for my Clan Mates list above for the complete answer to the quest, thanks to Antitype and his work for the information however. The second way is by walking into certain locations during certain times of the year. There will be a random chance of a popup with the description of Possible Recruit, or something along those lines. This however, does not determine the class and stats of your recruit, so you can easily play around, save the game, reload till you get what you desire. Also, there are some requirements for some classes. The advanced classes for each race are not available until you have unlocked the job class via the missions. Generally, you need to be able to unlock the area, but even unlocking the area isn't enough, so continue the story mission some more. There are some rules though. You can only recruit 1 Member of each RACE per YEAR. Therefore, you can only hire 1 Hume a Year, 1 Bangaa a Year and so forth. There is a maximum of 5 Recruits PER YEAR. Also, since the Seeq and Gria share months, they count as ONE RACE. Well, this is probably due to the fact that they both only have 4 classes, and your average class has at least 8, and there are only 12 months in the year and 12 isn't very divisible by 7, but it is by 6. Gria are unlocked when you have finished the mission that gives access to Fluorgis. Viera are unlocked when you finished "The Moon Seal", which requires "The Star Seal" to be unlocked. The general note is that you need to advance the story for some classes. For the more advanced classes, read the section on the job classes below for the requirements you need to unlock specific classes. Below is where you can recruit members and what month you'll need. Humes - BlackFrost or SkyFrost Targ Wood - Soldier, Thief, Black Mage, White Mage, Archer Galerria Deep - Paladin, Fighter, Blue Mage, Hunter Sant D'asla Bluff - Parivir, Ninja, Illusionist, Seer Bangaa - Greenfire or Bloodfire Baptiste Hills - Warrior, White Monk, Dragoon, Gladiator, Bishop Aisenfield - Defender, Master Monk, Templar, Trickster Nu-Mou - Rosefire or Coppersun Graszton - White Mage, Black Mage, Beastmaster Morrabelle - Time Mage, Arcanist, Illusionist, Sage Nazan Mines - Alchemist, Scholar Moogle - Goldsun, Silversun Bisga Greenlands - Animist, Thief, Black Mage Goug - Moogle Knight, Fusilier, Tinker, Time Mage Neslowe Passage - Chocobo Knight, Juggler, Flintlock Viera - Ashleaf or Mistleaf Camoa - Fencer, Archer, White Mage, Green Mage, Red Mage Rupie Mountains - Summoner, Elementalist, Assassin, Sniper, Spellblade Seeq/Gria - Emberleaf, Plumfrost Seeq Aldanna Range - Berserker, Ranger Tramdine Ruins - Lanista, Viking Gria Flourgis - Hunter, Raptor Zedlei Forest - Ravager, Geomancer If you decide to wonder why some of the classes haven't shown up even though you have advanced the story a good deal as well as unlocked the location, then your answer is in the quests that unlock the job set. Unlike the previous game, jobs are unlocked via missions. Many of the stronger jobs, such as Fighter, Fusilier and Trickster can only be unlocked from missions, more as a balance control rather than a nerfing measure. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [3.03] Clan Privileges Clan Privileges are little bonuses you get to use during your battle, and will continue to provide an effect for your clan, so long as you do not break the law in any way. Once you break the law, you don't get any more bonus. You will get these little privileges from clan trials. The level of the trial will determine what you will get. Basically, complete a trial, you get the rewards for that level BUT NONE OF THE benefits that you get from the levels below it. So you do need to General Training I five times to get all the rewards of privileges. Note that you can only have one version of each privilege at a time, and that is the highest level of the privilege. Keep that in mind. --==Agility Up==-- Increase the evasion of all your units and their strike rate at the enemy units. The effect will be increased with the rank of the privilege. Rank 1 - Your Start with this one. Rank 2 - Complete Adaptibility I at Surveyors Difficulty . Rank 3 - Complete Adaptibility I at Mimics Difficulty. Rank 4 - Complete Adaptibility II at Trailblazers Difficulty. Rank 5 - Complete Adaptibility II at Master Improvisers Difficulty. * Notes Useful, but it doesn't really help you stop those annoying 99% misses nor your 50% hits, but it is useful that the enemy can't hit you as often. Not very useful in the long run however, since there are FAR better options. --==Always Counter==-- Gives the Counter Ability to all units that lack an R ability. Rank 1 - Complete Negotiation-Teamwork at Master Judicer's difficulty. * Notes A Useful privilege, but by the time you get this, you will have access to a lot of R abilities, so it isn't all that useful. --==Bonus AP==-- Increase the amount of Ability Points gained after a quest by 20 at Rank 1, 40 at Rank 2 and 60 at Rank 3. Rank 1 - Complete Negotiation-Teamwork at Speakers Difficulty. Rank 2 - Complete Negotiation-Teamwork at Lectors Difficulty. Rank 3 - Complete Negotiation-Teamwork at Advocates Difficulty. * Notes An extremely handy ability, especially when you have new clan members you need to get up to speed. At Rank 3, you could be earning triple what you would get from your typical quest, which is about 30 Ability Points. --==Bonus CP==-- Increase the amount of Clan Points that you will obtain after a quest. The amount will depend on how many Clan Points are issued with the quest, which is typically double the rank of the quest. It will generally be about 10% at Rank 1, 20% at Rank 2 and 30% at Rank 3. Rank 1 - Complete General Training I at Trainees Difficulty. Rank 2 - Complete General Training I at Professionals Difficulty. Rank 3 - Complete General Training I at Veterans Difficulty. Again, quite useful, but you only need Clan Points for Auctions and these trials. But guess what? By the time you should have plenty. Heck, but the time I got to General Training, I had more than 200 CP, and I didn't even have auctions enabled yet. --==Bonus EXP==-- Increases the amount of Experience your units will gain from battle. It will be increased 10% at Rank 1, 20% at Rank 2 and 30% at Rank 3. Rank 1 - Complete Teamwork-Aptitude at Hands of Steel Difficulty. Rank 2 - Complete Teamwork-Aptitude at Hands of Gold Difficulty. Rank 3 - Complete Teamwork-Aptitude at Hands of Divinity Difficulty. * Notes Useful somewhat, but the problem is, experience is much easier in this game to obtain. You get about 60 EXP points per battle for your units when fighting units equal or higher at your level. --==Bonus Gil==-- Increases the amount of Gil obtained after you have completed a battle. It will be at 10% at Rank 1, 20% at Rank 2 and 30% at Rank 3. Rank 1 - Complete Adaptibility-Negotiation at Followers Difficulty. Rank 2 - Complete Adaptibility-Negotiation at Compromisers Difficulty. Rank 3 - Complete Adaptibility-Negotiation at Catalysts Difficulty. * Notes Very useful in the beginning where Gil can become an issue, but later on, when you are able to get this quest, it isn't as useful. However, you can use it on a big scoring quest or you're desperate for Gil. --==Debuff Resistance==-- Protects your units against a specific debuff. The higher the rank, the more debuffs you can be protected against. Note that the effect of the rank is stacked, therefore, Rank 5 will contain effects of Rank 1 to Rank 4 as well as the Rank 5 effect. Rank 1 = Poison Rank 2 = Blind Rank 3 = Silence and Blind Rank 4 = Immobolize and Disable Rank 5 = Confuse, Charm and Toad Rank 1 - Complete Aptitude-Adaptibility at Travelers Difficulty. Rank 2 - Complete Teamwork-Aptitude at Hands of Silver Difficulty. Rank 3 - Complete Adaptibility-Negotiation at Outriders Difficulty. Rank 4 - Complete Negotiation-Teamwork at Champions Difficulty. Rank 5 - Complete General Training II at Legends Difficulty. * Notes This is an extremely useful privilege when you are fighting against monsters because they are the main cause of Debuffs in the game. While it is rather pointless at the beginning, Rank 5 is when you should use it since Confuse and Charm is probably the most annoying debuffs, and the most common in the game. --==Empowered Bangaa==-- Increases the battle capacity of your Bangaa. Rank 1 - Complete Aptitude I at Grease Monkeys Difficulty. * Notes Not very useful unless you are fighting with a clan full of Bangaa, which I highly doubt. --==Empowered Gria==-- Increases the battle capacity of your Gria. Rank 1 - Complete Teamwork II at Comrades Difficulty. * Notes You aren't going to use a clan full of Gria, so don't bother. --==Empowered Humes==-- Increases the battle capacity of your Humes. Rank 1 - Complete General Training I at Novice Difficulty. * Notes You might use a fair amount of Humes, but not enough to warrant this skill. --==Empowered Moogles==-- Increases the battle capacity of your Moogles. Rank 1 - Complete Adaptibility I at Scouts Difficulty. * Notes You aren't going to use an army of fluffy creatures, so don't bother with this. --==Empowered Nu Mou==-- Increases the battle capacity of your Nu Mous. Rank 1 - Complete Negotiations I at Hagglers Difficulty. * Notes Nu Mous lack melee power, so you don't want to be using this skill anytime soon. --==Empowered Seeq==-- Increases the battle capacity of your Seeqs. Rank 1 - Complete Aptitude II at Craftsman Difficulty. * Notes Seeq aren't going to be a full assault force, so don't bother. --==Empowered Viera==-- Increases the battle capacity of your Viera. Rank 1 - Complete Teamwork I at Acquaintances Difficulty. * Notes Like all empowered privileges, it is pointless since you aren't going to rely on one class to fight the battle for you. --==Libra==-- Allows you to see all the traps on the map, as well as all traps set by the enemy as well. Rank 1 - Complete Adaptibility II at Contrivers Difficulty. Have Final Fantasy Tactics Advance in your GBA Slot when starting the game. * Notes A pointless, but sometimes useful privilege since you need to avoid some traps to make sure you don't die. Traps sometimes are used to your advantage, but you don't want to lose half your HP against a hard boss, and no healers are allowed do you? --==Luck==-- Increases the chance of obtaining a Critical Hit, the loot that is dropped by the enemy and the chance of your units obtaining an opportunity turn. As the rank increases, the effect increases. Rank 1 - You Start with this Privilege Rank 2 - Complete Negotiations I at Barterers Difficulty. Rank 3 - Complete Negotiations I at Orators Difficulty. Rank 4 - Complete Negotiations II at Conciliators Difficulty. Rank 5 - Complete Negotiations II at Master Negotiators Difficulty. * Notes Not useful for your clan if you are planning to win your battle on luck alone. In fact, no clan should be fighting if they plan to win on the back of some criticals and opportunity turns. Sure, they are useful, but you don't want to depend on them. --==Move Up==-- Increases the Movement range of your troops, allowing them to move even further. Rank 1 allows you to move one extra square, Rank 2 allows two extra squares. Rank 1 - Complete General Training II at Adept Difficulty. Rank 2 - Complete General Training II at Masters Difficulty. * Notes Again, not very useful because of one problem. You units need enough speed to move that far in the first place, and that will be a problem that you will not need to deal with until your units are at a very high level, or have been as a Ninja for a prolonged period of time. --==MP Channeling==-- Increases the amount of MP that you regenerate a turn from 10 MP to 20 MP. Rank 1 - Complete Aptitude-Adaptibility at Master Explorers Difficulty. * Notes Quite useful if you are planning to run around and blasting the living daylights out of anything that decides to move with your long range mages, but there are other privileges that can be more useful, but if you need to use mages, it is a good idea to use this one. --==MP Preservation==-- Reduces the MP cost of all your spells by half. Rank 1 - Complete Teamwork-Aptitude at Master Hands Difficulty. * Notes Again, quite useful, and pretty much the same effect as the last privilege as long as it is not coupled in with other abilities. Given there are more abilities that restore MP, this might be a bit more useful overall. --==Non-Elemental Attacks==-- Removes the element power of every attack. Therefore, Fire will lose its Fire trait, Blizzard will lose its Ice element, etc. Rank 1 - Complete Adaptibility-Negotiation at Master Intercessors Difficulty. * Notes Not very useful, not useful in the slightest. One of the major factors that you are going to play around with is elemental weaknesses. This will pretty much remove that in one fell swoop. Don't use this with Geomancy, a serious waste of power. --==Power Up==-- Improves the damage that your units deal as well as reducing the damage that you will receive from enemy units. The effects of Power Up increases as Rank of the privilege increases. Rank 1 - You start with this Privilege. Rank 2 - Complete Aptitude I at Machinist Difficulty. Rank 3 - Complete Aptitude I at Dab Hands Difficulty. Rank 4 - Complete Aptitude II at Wrights Difficulty. Rank 5 - Complete Aptitude II at Master Artificers Difficulty. * Notes An extremely useful ability that you'd probably be using most of the times. It will increase the damage you deal, as well as reducing the damage that you will receive. Those on hard mode are going to rely on this slightly more than those without since the enemy is stronger on hard mode. Level 2 will pretty much cancel out the effect of Hard Mode. Be aware that there are more privileges out there. --==Regene/Regenera/Regenega==-- This will recover a percentage of your health each turn. Rank 1 will regenerate 10% of Max HP, Rank 2 will regenerate 12.5% of Max HP while Rank 3 will regenerate about 16% of Max HP. (About 15.6%) Rank 1 - Complete General Training I at Journeyman Difficulty. Rank 2 - Complete General Training II at Braves Difficulty. Rank 3 - Complete General Training II at Heroes Difficulty. * Notes A very useful privilege if you can't be bothered or cannot use a White Mage in this battle. While it does not seem like a lot, remember that this is Every Turn, and a Tinker having those right spells pop your way, it will start to stack up in the end. --==Safe Keeping==-- This will prevent all your items from being either stolen or destroyed by the enemy. Rank 1 - Complete Negotiations II at Mediators Difficulty. * Notes Not very useful, why can't you just kill the enemy that can to this, ie, Assassins and Thieves before they get near you. --==Smash Gauge Bonus==-- This will effective increase the rate in which your Smash Gauge will fill up during the battle. The higher the Rank, the bigger the increase in which will be applied to your units. Rank 1 - Complete Aptitude-Adaptibility at Prospectors Difficulty. Rank 2 - Complete Aptitude-Adaptibility at Pioneers Difficulty. Rank 3 - Complete Aptitude-Adaptibility at Voyagers Difficulty. * Notes A semi-useful privilege, it increases the damage that your Scions will be able to do, BUT, you again, don't want to rely on these summons to win a battle, because that isn't a very good way to win. --==Speed Up==-- This will increase the speed of your units, increasing their turn order and that is certainly a good thing. The effect increases as rank increases. Rank 1 - You start with this Privilege. Rank 2 - Complete Teamwork I at Relations Difficulty. Rank 3 - Complete Teamwork I at Old Friends Difficulty. Rank 4 - Complete Teamwork II at Boon Companions Difficulty. Rank 5 - Complete Teamwork II at Master Allies Difficulty. * Notes Rather useful, it will make sure that your units will be faster on the turn order, and that means that they can strike first. This makes it a toss up whether you use Speed or Power because they are probably two of the most useful privileges. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [3.04] Clan Title Your Clan Name will have a title underneath it. This name will be given by the MOST RECENT challenge that you have SUCCESSFULLY complete via the CLAN TRIALS. Therefore, your most recent clan trial success will determine your Clan Title. Note that it is pretty much for bragging rights, nothing else. I'll have a list of the Titles that you can obtain from each trial, so complete the one that you want. --==Adaptibility==-- Adaptibility I Adaptibility II 1 - Scouts 1 - Contrivers 2 - Observers 2 - Survivalists 3 - Surveyors 3 - Trailblazers 4 - Imitators 4 - Executors 5 - Mimics 5 - Master Improvisers --==Aptitude==-- Aptitude I Aptitude II 1 - Grease Monkeys 1 - Craftsman 2 - Apprentices 2 - Smiths 3 - Machinists 3 - Wrights 4 - Technicians 4 - Artisans 5 - Dab Hands 5 - Master Artificers --==General Training==-- General Training I General Training II 1 - Novices 1 - Adepts 2 - Trainees 2 - Braves 3 - Journeymen 3 - Heroes 4 - Professionals 4 - Legends 5 - Veterans 5 - Master Adventurers --==Negotiation==-- Negotiation I Negotiation II 1 - Hagglers 1 - Mediators 2 - Intermediaries 2 - Counsilors 3 - Barterers 3 - Conciliators 4 - Brokers 4 - Arbiters 5 - Orators 5 - Master Negotiators --==Teamwork==-- Teamwork I Teamwork II 1 - Acquaintances 1 - Comrades 2 - Associates 2 - Cohorts 3 - Relations 3 - Boon Companions 4 - Confidantes 4 - Countrymen 5 - Old Friends 5 - Master Allies --==Mixed Trials==-- Adaptibility-Negotiation Aptitude-Adaptibility 1 - Followers 1 - Travelers 2 - Compromisers 2 - Prospectors 3 - Outriders 3 - Pioneers 4 - Catalysts 4 - Voyagers 5 - Master Intercessors 5 - Master Explorers Negotiation-Teamwork Teamwork-Aptitude 1 - Speakers 1 - Hands of Steel 2 - Lectors 2 - Hands of Silver 3 - Advocates 3 - Hands of Gold 4 - Champions 4 - Hands of Divinity 5 - Master Judicers 5 - Master Hands ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [3.05] Clan Auctions Auctions are the new way to control the areas. This replaces the battle and dispatch system that was done in the previous game. This method requires you to head to the different auction houses to bid for these territories. Auctions are the only way to obtain control of areas. What benefit does this have? Well, controlling an area has a fair amount of benefits. First of all, if you control an area, a rival clan will spring up, ready for battle, and these generally provide a LOT of Clan points and a lot of good gil. The next thing is that control of an area, in this case, a city, will lower the quest fees at the pub as well as lowering the cost of items at the shop. Loot sold at the shop and items sold at the shop will be given a bonus, meaning more gil for your hip-pocket. And finally, controlling the area of a region will give you some bonuses from glad citizens. --==Unlocked==-- Auctions are unlocked after the mission "Now That's a Fire" is unlocked by the storyline, so you need to advance the story before you can actually get this done. However, here, you can only access Graszton, Camoa and Moorabella. When you complete the Grounded! mission, you can use the auction houses at Fluorgis and Goug. --==Auctions==-- The first month of every year is auction season. That is, you have 20 days to go to all five auction houses and bid at all of them. My favourite is that you start exactly when the auction season starts, therefore, you attend your first auction on the 1st. My route is heading to Graszton, Camoa, Moorabella, Fluorgis and then Goug. There are several routes that you can take that make it efficient. They are: Camoa, Graszton, Moorabella, Fluorgis, Goug Grazston, Camoa, Moorabella, Fluorgis, Goug Goug, Fluorgis, Moorabella, Camoa, Graszton Goug, Fluorgis, Moorabella, Graszton, Camoa The reason that Fluorgis and Moorabella have to be next to each other is that they require an airship lift at the cost of 300 gil. Be quick, there is no other way across the ocean. Anyway, time to get onto the auctions themselves. Entering an auction house during the auction season requires you to pay a small entry fee. Note that these auctions are done via clan points. That's right, you didn't think that all those clan points were to be used in the Clan Trials did you? Entry fee is 20 CP. Each auction house has a few areas that they control. Most have 4, but some have 3 areas that you can control. Also, each auction has a different speed and a different limit on how many tokens that you get to bid in the auctions. More on that later in a more indepth section. Anyway, each auction itself is in little turns. This is where you decide what type of token you want to bid, if any, and watch the moves on the other clans and see what they are up to. At the end of the auction, the clan with the most coins on the screen wins the auction. In the event of a tie, the reigning champions will win. If that doesn't occur, the result is random, but more or less, it will skew towards you. A few more things that you need to be aware of is that there is a limit of 30 coins that can be bidded. The first clan to exceed this, which is quite stupid, since there is more than one auction, will automatically win the auction. Also, the reigning champion will get a bonus when they start the auction with one coin already on the board for them. --==End of Auctions==-- At the end of the auctions for an auction house, all the bonuses will be added to the tally. This tally of what you have done, the rounds you've won, the tokens that you have used, all this will be recorded. These bonuses are listed below. Taking part in 20 auctions will get you the token shop. This store allows you to purchase tokens after you have paid an entry fee and before the first auction. This gives you more tokens to play with, but with a fee. 1 1 Coin Token costs 5 Clan Points, 2 Coin Tokens cost 10 Clan Points, 3 Coin Tokens cost 20 Clan Points, and 5 Coin Tokens cost 70 Clan Points. That might seem like a lot, but given that 4 Coins would be 40, it is actually a discount. Using a token 10 times will give you one extra token before the first auction free of charge. Therefore, using 10 2 Coin Tokens will give you one extra two coin token before the first auction at any auction house. Using the Bonus during the auction 20 times will get a free Ribbon. These are very valuable, so make sure you get this quickly. The value of this will be shown in battle. Getting all the placed victories will give you items and gil. And finally, passing the 20 turns gets you 200 Clan Points. After the bonus is tallied, the items or area controlled by you is going to be updated. Once you control an entire area, that means, all the area that is up for grabs in an auction is controlled by you, you are Champion for Life, that is, you control the area forever. That means, you get the benefits from the auction for good. When you are Champion for Life, the auction house that you are the Champion for Life in will instead auction items. These items are pretty decent weapons that you normally wouldn't obtain until later in the game via the bazaar system. You would play the auction like normal, but the prize is the item, not the land. Also, being Champion will give you one extra coin at the start of all auctions. If you want to get really good items at the start of the game, you can just go and rest at Lezaford's Hut or the Water Hut for 200 days, walk around for a few days and then go again. Quite fun really. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [3.06] Auctions Mk 2 This is a more indepth section for the auction system. First of all, lets go through the areas that each auction house will control. Camoa - Camoa, Targ Woods, Baptiste Hill Graszton - Graszton, The Bisga Greenlands, Zedlei Forest, The Aldanna Range Morrabella - Moorabella, The Rupie Highlands, The Ruins of Delgantua, The Galerria Deep Fluorgis - Flourgis, Tramdine Fens, Nazan Mines, Sant D'alsa Bluff Goug - Goug, Aisenfield, The Neslowe Passage, Kthili Sands Now, the next section is ahead. --==Reading the Moves==-- It is best if you can read the moves of the other team. By doing so, you can keep ahead by using as few coins as possible, waste as few of those valuable 5 coin and 3 coin tokens. No Move Yet - Speech Bubble, talking to their clan mates. Wait for a signal. Pass - They will shake their heads and sit down. 1 Coin - They will stand still and not move. 2 Coins - They will start walking slowly. 3 Coins - They will dash forward, rushing somewhere. 5 Coins - Exclamation mark above their head. Yelling into the air. This is important, you really need to master this if you want to be good at the auctions. After all, there is no reason to win the first auction buy 15 coins, only to run out for the next three auctions. Now, to go in depth about each auction that you are going to face. --==Auction House Camoa==-- You start this auction house with the following: 6 X 1-Coin Tokens 5 X 2-Coin Tokens 6 X 3-Coin Tokens The first auction is Camoa itself. Turn 1 = 4 Seconds Turn 2 = 4 Seconds Turn 3 = 4 Seconds Turn 4 = 4 Seconds Turn 5 = 4 Seconds Turn 6 = 4 Seconds This is an easy auction, and probably your first one. You are probably going to face the heaviest competition from either the Yellow Wings or the Camoa Braves, the latter is probably going to be the one to fight with. Read the actions, stay one ahead of them to save the tokens for later. The other clans are going to bid little, so be careful to save your tokens. The second auction is Targ Woods. Turn 1 = 3 Seconds Turn 2 = 3 Seconds, Bonus 1st Place Turn 3 = 3 Seconds Turn 4 = 3 Seconds For being in first place on turn 2, you get a nice 5 Coin token. This is easy to get in first place by then, use 2 3-Coin tokens to get there. The Yellow Wings or House Minymum are going to be your competition here, the former more often than not going to take this down if you don't beat them. The final auction is Baptiste Hill Turn 1 = 3 Seconds, Bonus 3rd Place Turn 2 = 3 Seconds Turn 3 = 3 Seconds Turn 4 = 3 Seconds, Bonus 2nd Place Turn 5 = 3 Seconds Turn 6 = 3 Seconds Turn 7 = 3 Seconds This is going to be one where you get the bonuses if you can and use them, and waste the rest of your 3 Coiners to win this battle. The team that you are going to be fighting against is probably going to be Chita's Weaponers and the Camoa Braves, though the former is probably going to be more potent since the latter is weaker from the previous auction, especially the first one. --==Auction House Graszton==-- You start this auction house with the following: 10 X 1-Coin Tokens 6 X 2-Coin Tokens 6 X 3-Coin Tokens The first auction is Graszton itself. Turn 1 = 4 Seconds Turn 2 = 4 Seconds Turn 3 = 3 Seconds Turn 4 = 2 Seconds Turn 5 = 2 Seconds Turn 6 = 1.5 Seconds This is the first auction, probably the first one where you get shorter and shorter turns. This makes it harder for you, but you need to get the hang of it. Once it gets to turn 6, its more or less an instant reaction that you need to win this one. Grazston Shipping is your biggest rival here, the other clans aren't going to do much here. The second auction is the Bisga Greenlands. Turn 1 = 4 Seconds Turn 2 = 4 Seconds, Bonus 2nd Place Turn 3 = 4 Seconds Turn 4 = 4 Seconds Turn 5 = 4 Seconds, Bonus 2nd Place Turn 6 = 4 Seconds The short turns are gone for now, but you only have 2 bonus chips up for grabs. You don't want to be first, so drift behind the leader, staying one coin behind for the first bonus, and one coin behind for the second bonus and then use one of the 5 coin chips to win the auction. Any clan can win this one, no specific clan will fight hard. The third auction is the Aldanna Range. Turn 1 = 2 Seconds, Bonus 3rd Place Turn 2 = 2 Seconds, Bonus 2nd Place Turn 3 = 2 Seconds, Bonus 1st Place This is the best auction that you can participate in because of the big bonuses that you get. This is basically a bonus bonanza. You need to read the moves carefully to get the bonuses, because all three bonuses for the next round is very important and guarantees your victory. Any clan will try to win this one. The final auction is Zedlei Forest. Turn 1 = 2 Seconds Turn 2 = 2 Seconds, Bonus 4th Place Turn 3 = 2 Seconds Turn 4 = 2 Seconds, Bonus 1st Place Turn 5 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 6 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 7 = 1.5 Seconds Your turn is rather short here, so you should forest about the second turn bonus and use your bonuses from the previous round to get the one in round 4 and clean this mission up. The other clans cannot offer much in the way of a fight, but Zedlei Consortium is going to be one to give you some trouble. --==Auction House Moorabella==-- You start this auction house with the following: 9 X 1-Coin Tokens 10 X 2-Coin Tokens 8 X 3-Coin Tokens The first auction is Moorabella itself. Turn 1 = 4 Seconds Turn 2 = 4 Seconds Turn 3 = 4 Seconds Turn 4 = 4 Seconds Turn 5 = 4 Seconds, Bonus 4th Place Turn 6 = 4 Seconds Turn 7 = 4 Seconds Turn 8 = 4 Seconds, Bonus 2nd Place The fifth turn bonus is rather good, but the final turn one is the one you should avoid because that means that you lose the battle. This is a hard one for one reason, the Pirates and the Crusade will want to win this and burst all your tokens. Read their faces, get the bonus, and use it to stay ahead. This will deplete their coin reserves as well. The second auction is the Galerria Deep. Turn 1 = 3 Seconds Turn 2 = 2 Seconds Turn 3 = 2 Seconds, Bonus 2nd Place Turn 4 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 5 = 1.5 Seconds, Bonus 4th Place Again, avoid the last place bonus because you want to win. Get the second place bonus, and use it to win the battle. House Prost is probably going to be a big challenger here, but all clans, except the prior two, are going to give it their best shot, since the prior two, Pirates and Crusade, are going to be a little empty on coins. The third auction is the Rupie Mountains. Turn 1 = 2 Seconds Turn 2 = 2 Seconds Turn 3 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 4 = 1.5 Seconds, Bonus 3rd Place Turn 5 = 1 Second Turn 6 = 0.5 Second Aim for the bonus if you can. You really need to up your skills here for the Turn 6 win because the turns are getting short and shorter, and you need to look at the picture of all the other clans, and quickly decide what to do. Unless the other clans have 5 coin tokens, use a three coin token if you are in the lead at turn 5 to win. Otherwise, use the 5 coiner. The Bangaa Brotherhood and the Nu Mou Nobles are going to be fierce competitors here. The fourth auction is the Ruins of Delgantua. Turn 1 = 2 Seconds Turn 2 = 2 Seconds Turn 3 = 2 Seconds Turn 4 = 2 Seconds Turn 5 = 2 Seconds Turn 6 = 2 Seconds Turn 7 = 2 Seconds Turn 8 = 2 Seconds This is a basic auction. There are short turns, and there are no bonuses, so you really need to go all out. Use all your bonuses, use all your 3 coin tokens and then the twos. Hopefully, if you played it smart, the other clans are out of tokens, and you should have some left over to win this one. This is where the token store really shines and where smart playing comes into effect. --==Auction House Fluorgis==-- You start this auction house with the following: 8 X 1-Coin Tokens 8 X 2-Coin Tokens 8 X 3-Coin Tokens The first auction is Fluorgis itself. Turn 1 = 4 Seconds Turn 2 = 2 Seconds Turn 3 = 2 Seconds Turn 4 = 1.5 Seconds, Bonus 4th Place Turn 5 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 6 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 7 = 1.5 Seconds Your first auction is a whole lot rougher. Rough it out a little bit and aim for the 4th place bonus. Make sure you are only 1 behind from the lead. Odds are that the other clans will start to bid down, and you can catch up with the three coins, or at worst, use the 5 coin token. Although you didn't get to save the big one, you used some smaller tokens, and that is a good thing, you don't want to waste the big ones. Everyone will try to win this one, so there is a lot of competition here. The second auction is the Tramdine Fens. Turn 1 = 1 Second Turn 2 = 1 Second, Bonus 1st Place Turn 3 = 1 Second, Bonus 2nd Place Turn 4 = 2 Seconds, Bonus 5th Place Turn 5 = 1 Second Turn 6 = 1 Second, Bonus 3rd Place Ok, you really want the two bonuses here. Get the second and first place bonuses that you can get because they are the ones that you can achieve. You can't go from 2nd to 5th without some good luck, and ending on 3rd isn't a winning option. Its fast, so make sure you are too. The Jystra groups are going to be your main opposition here. The third auction is Sant D'Alsa Bluff. Turn 1 = 1.5 Seconds, Bonus 5th Place Turn 2 = 3 Seconds Turn 3 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 4 = 2 Seconds Turn 5 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 6 = 2 Seconds Turn 7 = 1 Second, Bonus 1st Place A hard one, because it is quite hard to get the 5th place bonus, but forget about it. Concentrate on the first place bonus at the end because the next auction is another all out challenge. This is a hard one, but the main opposition aren't the Jystra Company, but the Naturalist Society. Make sure that they don't win this mission. The final auction is Nazan Mines. Turn 1 = 1 Second Turn 2 = 0.5 Second Turn 3 = 0.5 Second Turn 4 = 0.5 Second, Bonus 2nd Place Turn 5 = 0.5 Second Turn 6 = 0.5 Second Turn 7 = 0.5 Second You seriously want the second place bonus, and as always, you just want to be one coin behind them. Once you get the bonus, you can easily go and get the the victory by using the bonus, and that will place you above the other clan's coin total. Remember, although the other clans are desperate for victory, they are going to be out of one thing, coins. --==Auction House Goug==-- You start this auction house with the following: 2 X 1-Coin Tokens 2 X 2-Coin Tokens 2 X 3-Coin Tokens The first auction is Goug itself. Turn 1 = 2 Seconds, Bonus 4th Place Turn 2 = 2 Seconds Turn 3 = 2 Seconds, Bonus 4th Place Turn 4 = 1.5 Seconds You are seriously in need of the token store and need the bonuses because this auction house is one where coins are going to be hard to come by. Get the 4th place bonus in the start, either bid 1 or pass. This should get you the bonus and then use all big coins to win this auction. The Goug Consortium is going to be the main threat here. The second auction is Aisenfield. Turn 1 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 2 = 1 Second, Bonus 2nd Place Turn 3 = 0.5 Second, Bonus 3rd Place Turn 4 = 0.5 Second, Bonus 1st Place Turn 5 = 0.5 Second, Bonus 2nd Place Turn 6 = 1.5 Seconds A harder mission, but the other clans are out of coins, and that is very good news. You want to clean up all 4 bonuses to win this mission. You want to make sure that you read the moves of the other clans carefully because you don't want to blow up all your tokens. Goug will fight, if they have the tokens. The third auction is Kthili Sands. Turn 1 = 3 Seconds, Bonus 5th Place Turn 2 = 2 Seconds Turn 3 = 2 Seconds Turn 4 = 2 Seconds Turn 5 = 2 Seconds, Bonus 3rd Place Turn 6 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 7 = 2 Seconds Turn 8 = 1.5 Seconds This is where the sign of the token store leaves its mark because you are going to be out of tokens or have a few 5 coin tokens because of the last round. The other clans should have some left, but you fought them all at once, twice. Prima Donna is going to be a pain here. Aim for the 3rd place bonus and hope you win this. The final auction is the Neslowe Passage. Turn 1 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 2 = 0.5 Second Turn 3 = 1.5 Seconds, Bonus 3rd Place Turn 4 = 0.5 Second Turn 5 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 6 = 0.5 Second Turn 7 = 1.5 Seconds Turn 8 = 0.5 Second Boy, are you screwed if you are out of tokens. This is where the token store really shines brightly, it almost blinds you. You need that bonus if you don't have the token store. If you do, I hope you bought a lot of coins so you can easily blitz this auction. However, the only clan that is going to fight you are the clans that actually have coins left over. This is the last auction in the game, so it is going to be hard. Pat yourself on the back if you win. --==Items==-- When you are master of a region, you pretty much go for items. You are bidding for items instead of regions, and the regions stay in your control so it is all good. My credits go to WiinolikePS3 for all his work on this list. These are all the prizes that can be won from the auction house. To get the Grand Prize, you need to win all the auctions that the auction house has to offer. Thats a fair deal. The other clans bid like they did before and the structure is the same. Just use the order to look up on how to win the auction that you are on. Once you head to the auction house that deals in items, you can see what the items and the grand prize is, and the good part is that you can save the game before hand, reload until you get the prize pool that you like, so that makes it more of a rigging contest. And without further ado. --==Camoa==-- General Prizes: * Aegis Shield * Arbalest * Blood Sword * Bracers * Brevis * Brigand's Gloves * Carabineer Mail * Chocobo Shield * Cinquedea * Crown Scepter * Epee-Prisme * Francisca * Gastrophetes * Jambiya * Kain's Lance * Mirror Mail * Orgenix * Onion Sword * Reverie Shield * Samite Coat * Swordbreaker * Talwar * Tiara * Venus Blade * White Robe Grand Prizes: * Black Hat * Ever Robe * Gleisburst * Judicer's Coat * Mjolnir * Ribbon * Veil of Wiyu * Zeus Mace --==Fluorgis==-- General Prizes: * Ace of Spade * Adamant Armour * Bone Armlets * Cheer Staff * Eight Fluted Pole * Elixir * Empyreal Armband * Fortune Ring * Frigid Viol * Grimoire Stone * Gupti Apa * Hanya Mask * Last Letter * Luminous Robe * Manganese Saber * Marduk * Master Bow * Materia Armour * Materia Blade * Maximillian Armour * Morning Star * Partisan * Peacemaker * Six of Diamonds * Spring Staff * Templar Shield * Vitanova * White Hat * White Robe * Winged Boots Grand Prizes: * Galmia Frock * Galmia Shoes * Golden Skullcap * Kotetsu * Lordly Robe * Shield of the Four * Staff of the Magi * Tournesol --==Goug==-- General Prizes: * Ayuvir Red * Beastsword * Brint Frock * Claymore * Dark Matter * Death Claws * Dromaeo * Elixir * Faerie Harp * Femme Fatale * Giot Gun * Godhand * Guang Cannon * Harpe * Heal Chime * Heretic Rod * King of Hearts * Ligatur * Longbarrel * Magic Hands * Massive Bazooka * Outsider * Paraiba Blade * Reaper's Robe * Rhomphaia * Ruby Ear Rings * Scorpion Tail * Vigilante * Wingsong Rapier Grand Prizes: * Angel Ring * Bomb Arm * Dragon Whisker * Ensanguined Shield * Joker * Malbow * Rocket Punch * Tonberrian --==Graszton==-- General Prizes: * Aegis Shield * Adamant Blade * Arbalest * Barette * Brigand's Gloves * Cachusha * Cat Claw * Chocobo Shield * Crescent Bow * Giant's Helmet * Golden Axe * Grimoire Stone * Hardedge * Ivory Pole * Kiku-Ichimonji * Lilith Rod * Luabreaker * Magick Ring * Magick Robe * Mandragora * Masamune * Max's Oathbow * Oblige * Stardust Rod * Sumihomura * Trident Bow * Yoichi Bow * Zanmato * Zweihander Grand Prizes: * Genji Armour * Genji Gloves * Genji Helm * Genji Shield * Ninja Tabi * Ragetsu-denbu * Scarab Charm * Tome of Ending --==Moorabella==-- General Prizes: * Artemis Bow * Black Robe * Blueleaf Flute * Bone Plate * Dark Matter * Ebon Blade * Edaroya Scriptures * Eureka Crystal * Excalibur * Gauntlets * Gokuu Pole * Golden Amulet * Greataxe * Life Crosier * Lotus Mace * Madu * Nirvana * Orb of Minwu * Orichalcum Dirk * Perseus Bow * Pomegrante Staff * Save the Queen * Sledgehammer * Survivor * Templar Cloth * Tiger Fangs * Vajra * White Robe Grand Prizes: * Diabolique * Estrella * Gaius Caligue * Red Robe * Sage's Robe * Seventh Heaven * Soulsaber * The Fallen Angel Remember, if you stuff up the auction, or know that you will stuff up, make sure that you save the game before hand. It is important that you always save before an auction because a single mistake can easily ruin the entire set of auctions that you can go through. Note that what the other clans are going to do is based on your decision somewhat. If I mention that the clan is trying to win, that means that they are going to attempt to beat you. That means, you know what they are going to do, go all out. Use the bonuses to your advantage and assume for the worst if you cannot read what the other team is actually trying to do. Read the part about reading the other team if you are not sure. Note that you will get better as you go along, everyone does. Also, if you want to play for prizes early on where your bazaar isn't as big as it should be, you can just rest in Lezaford's or the Waterside huts for time to skip by. Choosing the longest option is 200 days, and that makes it close to auction season since there are only 240 days in the year here. And thats all for the auction folks. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [4.01] Little Overview Just a little overview in case you are not familar how these classes and abilities will work. AP is going to mean ability points. You automatically gain these points after a battle and most quests. These are the points that you need to master an ability provided by a weapon so that you no longer need to wield that weapon to perform that ability. Read the manual for more info. Active Abilities is going to mean abilities with that class set. Passive means it is always active, and Reaction is basically what will happen when your unit is targeted in battle. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [4.02] Hume Classes *********** **SOLDIER** *********** "Soldiers employ the arts of war to weaken and slow opponents." Requirements - None Soldiers are going to be the staple class that you are going to need to use. The good thing the soldier has to offer are the skills that can seriously weaken the enemy, but they are often not enough to warrant this as a second ability. Use it because you need this to unlock the stronger classes. --==Arts of War==-- First Aid - 100 AP (Broadsword) - Active "Treats the user's wounds, restoring HP." It restores the HP of the user, but what is really restored is little. Because it is an ability, it is useful in removing the user's poison, which will slowly take away the health of the user. Gauge - 150 AP (Burglar Sword) - Active "Reveal the target's Lv. 1 Loot and Items." It is sort of like Peek, it is only useful if you intend to steal items, but then again, Gil is vital early game. Rend Power - 250 AP (Barong) - Active "Lower the target's ATTACK, reducing physical damage dealt." It is a permanent debuff to the enemy, but you are going to be more concerned about them hitting you for standing so close. Rend Magick - 250 AP (Buster Sword) - Active "Lower the target's MAGICK, reducing spell potency." Very useful, but since the Magick type are weaker to physical damage anyway, you might as well just go there and smack them with the sword you're carrying. Rend MP - 250 AP (Ancient Sword) - Active "Deplete the target's MP." Quite useful later in the game, but again, the user would only need high MP for spells, and they are quite weak to physical attacks. Provoke - 300 AP (Blood Sword) - Active "Cause the target to go BERSERK." Not very useful against your enemies, you might as well make them hit with less power, but then again, you might as well just kill them. Rend Speed - 350 AP (Silver Sword) - Active "Lowers the target's speed." Useful to slow down the enemy so they get their turn later, but unless they are a hard hitter or is seriously annoying, don't bother. Mug Gil - 350 AP (Diamond Sword) - Active "Deal damage and steal gil from the target." This is a fun one to play with. This deals some decent damage, more or less like a normal hit, and it also deals a varying amount of gil from the enemy, useful for your coffers. Shieldbearer - 150 AP (Bronze Shield) - Passive "Enables the user to equip shields, regardless of their current job." A useful skill with some classes since they do not have access to any defence, and shields will provide some. Mages are most vulnerable and really need shields to save them. Monkey Grip - 250 AP (Dagriohm) - Passive "Wield two-handed weapons with one hand." A useful skill if you want to hold some shield to fight with as well, it can be used, but there are far better passive abilities out there anyway. ********* **THIEF** ********* "Dextrous and nimble, thieves excel at stealing from the unwary and evading blows." Requirements - 1 Soldier Ability Thieves are quite a useful class, but one of their most powerful and useful abilities are gone. Steal Abilities seriously quicken the skills you can learn, but they are seriously quick, and counter is quite useful. --==Thievery==-- Loot Level 1 - 100 AP (Scramasax) - Active "Steal the target's Lvl. 1 Loot." This basically means you steal all unranked loot. Look at the Loot Item list for more info. Steal Gil - 200 AP (Jackknive) - Active "Steal the target's gil." This basically steals a varying amount of Gil off your enemy, and is only useful if you need the money, otherwise, just don't. Steal Items - 200 AP (Kard) - Active "Steals the target's items." It steals the items that you can use, such as eye drops, phoenix downs and holy waters. However, there are some rare items, such as Dark Matter. Note that you cannot steal their equipment. Loot Level 2 - 200 AP (Rondel) - Active "Steal the target's Lvl. 2 Loot." This steals their Rank 1, or Level 2 Loot. These are generally worth about 200 to 500 Gil at the shops. Loot Level 3 - 300 AP (Swordbreaker) - Active "Steal the target's Lvl. 3 Loot." This steals enemy's Rank 2, or Level 3 Loot. These are worth even more gil, at about 500 to 1000 Gil on average at the shops. Loot Level 4 - 400 AP (Cinquedea) - Active "Steal the target's Lvl. 4 Loot." This steals the best loot in the game, and generally speaking, the most valuable loot. They are worth a lot at the shops and used in the best of the weapons. Steal Limelight - 400 AP (Orichalcum Dirk) - Active "Steal the target's accumulated Smash Gauge Points." These are required in Scions and Espers, so this will be covered later. However, the more points in the Smash Gauge, the more damage they will deal, so if you want a quick victory or to end a stalemate, this is the way to go. Steal Accessory - 550 AP (Jambiya) - Active "Steal the target's accessory." This is the only steal option for equipment, this is useful later in the game where enemies carry valuables, such as Angel Rings, but this early on, it isn't all that useful. Equipment would be more valuable." Counter - 150 AP (Chainmail) - Reaction "Counter attack when targeted with an offensive action." The best way to deal more damage early on, since you basically attack back when the enemy melee attacks you. Quite useful, but easily surpassed with Humes. Safeguard - 150 AP (Adamant Vest) - Passive "Prevent's the user's equipment from being stolen or destroyed." Quite useful when you're facing assassins or other thieves, but you don't really need to fear them, you can just kill them. Not that useful, but it is for completion. ************** **WHITE MAGE** ************** "White mages use curing magicks to mend allies' wounds and restore them to health." Requirements - None Your basic healer, the White Mage is the one that is going to be mending your wounds from battle. Though they are weaker in terms of White Mages compared with their Nu Mou and Viera counterparts with their lower MP growth. A good support ability, it would make a decent secondary ability set because of this. --==White Magick==-- Cure - 100 AP (White Staff) - Active "Magickally bind wounds and target's wounds. Restores HP and deals damage to undead." Your basic cure spell, and given that MP now starts on 0, the first healing spell you can cast. Useful early on in battles. Cura - 200 AP (Healing Staff) - Active "Magickally restore a large amount of HP. Deals damage to undead." A stronger healing spell, but cannot be cast on the first turn, better in the middle point in a battle. Esuna - 200 AP (Cleansing Staff) - Active "Magickally purge the target of debuffs." An essential spell for any white mage, the amount of debuffs in this game is far greater than the last game. Train it when possible. Raise - 200 AP (Staff of Blessings) - Active "Magickally revive the target, removing KO. Deals damage to undead." An extremely useful spell if you have actually have followed the law, you can easily restore your fallen teammates. Great if the enemy giving you a hard time. Curaga - 300 AP (Spring Staff) - Active "Magickally restores a great amount of HP. Deals damage to undead." An extremely powerful heal, this will only be used when you have a lot of MP to burn. But if used on your troops, it will save them pretty well. Reraise - 400 AP (Cheer Staff) - Active "Grant RERAISE buff to the target. Automatically grants Raise on them if they are KO'd." Probably one of the best skills of the white mage, it will automatically restore the unit back to life if they are killed in battle. Saves your troops, but once it is used, the buff is removed. Arise - 400 AP (Nirvana) - Active "Magickally revives the target. Removes KO and restores full HP. Deals damage to undead." A better version of raise, it will restore the user to FULL HP when they have fallen. Shame you can't mix Arise and Reraise together. Refresh - 400 AP (Staff of the Magi) - Active "Magickly cleanse the target of debuffs uneffected by Esuna." This is the improved nversion of Esuna, it will remove the Attack Down and Magick Down type debuffs from your own units. Turbo MP - 250 AP (White Robe) - Passive "Spells cost twice their usual MP, but are much more potent." This is useful for the offensive magick types, but for you healers, this is far less useful. Double potency for your Cure spells isn't all that useful, you have stronger versions of cure for that. ************** **BLACK MAGE** ************** "Black mages wield elemental powers of fire, ice and lightning to decimate foes." Requirements - 1 White Mage Ability While the White Mage heals people, the Black Mage hurts people. They can use their elemental spells to damage and kill their enemies, but the MP change as effectively nerfed their powers. A powerful ability set, useful as a secondary skill set. --==Black Magick==-- Fire - 100 AP (Rod) - Active "Hurl a ball of magick, dealing fire damage to the target." Your basic fire spell, this is the staple for dealing fire damage. Blizzard - 100 AP (Rod) - Active "Pierce the target with a shard of ice, dealing ice damage." Your basic ice spell, you are going to use this for ice damage. Thunder - 100 AP (Rod) - Active "Call down a bolt of lightning, dealing lightning damage to the target." Your basic lightning spell, deals lightning damage, but is the coolest looking spell. Fira - 200 AP (Firewheel Rod) - Active "An improved version of Fire. Deals even greater fire damage to its target." Your improved fire spell, but you can't cast it on your first turn without buffs. Bilzzara - 200 AP (Sleet Rod) - Active "An improved version of Blizzard. Deals even greater ice damage to its target." Improved ice spell, sounds better as well. Thundara - 200 AP (Thunder Rod) - Active "An improved version of Thunder. Deals even greater thunder damage to its target." The improved Thunder spell. Firaga - 300 AP (Flame Rod) - Active "The greatest Fire magick. Consumes its target in hellfire, dealing massive fire damage." The Best fire spell your mage is going to have access to. Blizzaga - 300 AP (Chill Rod) - Active "The greatest Blizzard magick. Impales target, dealing massive ice damage." The best Blizzard skill you are going to get. Thundaga - 300 AP (Thor Rod) - Active "The greatest Thunder magick. Blasts its target with countless bolts, dealing massive thunder damage." The best Thunder skill you get going to have access to. Magick Counter - 400 AP (Samite Coat) - Reaction "Cast magicks targeting the user back at the caster. Magicks cast in this way require MP." This is a decent skill, but there are problems. Magick users tend to have high resistance, making the damage quite small, and the MP usage is bad because MP is quite valuable, especially early on. Geomancy - 350 AP (Sage's Robe) - Passive "Lowers resistance to the user's elemental attacks. (Absorb -> Immune -> Half -> Normal -> Weak) This is extremely useful as a passive skill. It basically makes normal units weak to all spells cast by the user. This is best to make your enemies, with no weaknesses, with weaknesses. Normally used on units without weaknesses take greater damage. ********** **ARCHER** ********** "Archers stand out of harm's way, raining arrows upon their foes from afar." Requirement - 1 Soldier Ability Focus - 100 AP (Longbow) - Active "Muster the user's strength, increasing the next action's ATTACK." This is somewhat useful, but when you get access to stronger abilities, this becomes somewhat a waste of a turn. Use it early on when you don't have any stronger abilities. --==Precision==-- Burial - 200 AP (Silver Bow) - Active "Bring peace to the undead." Only useful against undead units, which aren't as common anymore. It will get rid of them however, unless the other methods. Take Aim - 200 AP (Yoichi Bow) - Active "Take careful aim at the target, increasing chance to hit, but dealing less damage." This is basically damage that never misses. Useful, but it does about half the damage you'd normally do. I'd take my chances. Leg Shot - 250 AP (Thorn Bow) - Active "Take aim at the target's leg and IMMOBILIZE it." Useful against melee opponents, since if they cannot move, they cannot deal any damage, and they cannot run away either. Blackout - 250 AP (Char Bow) - Active "Loose specially prepared arrows to BLIND the target." Blind isn't like what is was, it still have an accuracy rate of about 75% at best, not like the previous 5% chance of landing a blow. Not that useful as before. Lightning Strike - 300 AP (Perseus Bow) - Active "A blindingly fast attack that does not trigger reaction abilities." Excellent against those who can attack back and use Archer's Bane, this makes sure that they take the damage. Arm Shot - 350 AP (Nail Bow) - Active "Takes aim at the target's arm to DISABLE it." If you don't want your enemy, who is already in your sights, and prevent them from doing any damage they could possibly be dealt. Cupid - 450 AP (Artemis Bow) - Active "Pierce the target's heart with a magicked arrow. CHARMS the target." A very useful way to get an enemy unit to turn on their allies. Support units will heal you, fighters will fight for you, both will continue to do so until they are dealt damage. Archer's Bane - 200 AP (Green Beret) - Reaction "Avoid all bow-based basic attacks." The best way to avoid enemy arrows, this will always give misses to normal bow attacks. Later on, you'd want to get abilities that hit back, instead of just avoiding. Concentration - 250 AP (Target Bow) - Passive "Focuses the user's thoughts. Increases chance to hit." A useful one for ranged units, you always want your shots to hit the target. You have the Take Aim for nevermiss damage, but this will effect all your moves, especially when you change jobs. *********** **PALADIN** *********** "Their sturdy defences enable paladins to endure punishing attacks. They also possess a variety of abilities to aid their allies." Requirements - 3 Soldier Abilities The Paladin is basically the meat tank for your team. They rush to the front lines to take all the damage for your team, while your other units dish out the damage to kill the enemy. The Paladin also has Holy Attacks, which make them best to counter those with Holy Weaknesses but are not undead. --==Chivalry==-- Nurse - 100 AP (Defender) - Active "Attempt to make the user's wound more bearable by restoring HP and removing debuffs." An extremely useful ability, unless they are DISABLED, where they cannot use their arm. This removes most debuffs and restores a nice amount of HP. Parley - 100 AP (Barong) - Active "Compel the foe to flee the battlefield." I don't like this ability that much, because it is pointless. It is only very effective when the enemy is on VERY LOW HP, and by that stage, you can easily slice them with the sword you're carrying, both for loot and EXP. One of the more useless abilities. Defend - 200 AP (Lionheart) - Active "Concentrate solely on protecting one's self. Raises DEFENCE and RESISTANCE until the user's next action." It is best used when you are out of range of the enemy, yet you know they are going to attack before you can get a turn in, this makes the damage that would be dealt less painful on your HP bar. Sanctify - 250 AP (Ogrenix) - Active "Unleash a flash of holy light, banishing the undead." Again, by the time you get the Paladin, you already have more effective means of getting rid of the undead, so it isn't all that useful. Cover - 300 AP (Save the Queen) - Active "Take all damage directed at the target until the user's next turn." It will cover less damage since the new battle system means you get your next turn a lot faster. But if your mages stand to take damage and you are the last unit to move, this is a much better option because Mages deal a lot more damage than a single Paladin can. War Cry - 300 AP (Oblige) - Active "Let out a hastening battle cry, raising RESILIENCE of surrounding units to debuffs." Extremely useful early on your own parties when you are facing a lot of monsters or enemies with a lot of debuffs. Resilience to the debuffs is going to ensure that your units don't get confused, or charmed, or a lot of things. Saint Cross - 400 AP (Arch Sword) - Active "Project a righteous area, dealing holy damage to surrounding units." Yes, this massive attack is back. Dealing damage around it in a cross shape, it will deal huge amounts of damage for an area based attack on your enemies. Best since your Paladins are great melee fighters and are going to be in close quarters combat often. Holy Blade - 400 AP (Excalibur) - Active "Summon a blade of divine light to deal holy damage to the target." Probably the best attack the Paladin has to offer, it does a LOT of damage to a target. This ensures that they get a low HP bar at the end of this, granted that it actually hits them first. Reflex - 350 AP (Genji Armour) - Reaction "Avoid all basic attacks" This is a step up from Archer's Bane, it will avoid all normal attacks, that is, attacks that are not from the abilities section. Note that this doesn't mean you can't take damage, enemies just need to use their abilities. Defence Up - 150 AP (Diamond Armour) - Passive "Raises DEFENCE. Decreases physical damage received." This is useful if you have no other useful passive abilities since it will make your unit a bit harder to kill. Given that several monsters have attacks that go through armour, defence is very important. *********** **FIGHTER** *********** "Fighters are masters of the sword who place offence above defence." Requirement - 3 Soldier Abilities, "To be a Fighter" Quest Complete An extremely powerful class with exceptional abilities that ensure that your enemy knows you are here, and here to stay. They have some new abilities that they get to play with, and they are powerful, especially Aurablast. This is a very useful secondary set with their powers. --==Pugilism==-- Rush - 100 AP (Sweep Blade) - Active "Attack with staggering force, knocking the target back." A useful attack in some situations, this is one of the ways to knock your opponent back on command. It does normal damage and if possible, knocks your enemy back. However, if your enemy where to be knocked back off a cliff, it could be VERY interesting. Beat Down - 250 AP (Shadow Blade) - Active "An all-out attack that deals heavy damage, but with a reduced chance to hit." This is best used when your enemy isn't able to avoid your attack, that is, when they are sleeping. This basically does double the normal damage that you will normally do, but with about half the accuracy. Useful if you can hit, not useful if you can't. Blitz - 250 AP (Sun Blade) - Active "Take the measure of the target before attacking. Increases chance to hit but deals less damage." This is the opposite of Beat Down, it does less damage, but nearly guarantees your sword to land on the enemy. Useful if you require damage to kill the enemy, but are out of turns and you want him dead, now. Air Render - 250 AP (Atomos Blade) - Active "Focus the user's ki, sending blades of air tearing through the target." An extremely powerful ranged attack that will normally do more damage than your normal attack would. While it doesn't deal any elemental damage, it will do a lot of damage, and with decent range, it will certainly make your enemies think twice. Wild Swing - 250 AP (Ogun Blade) - Active "Spin in a tight circle with weapon outheld, damaging surrounding units." This is pretty useful if you are surrounded by enemy units, but the problem is that there is no knock-back. However, if you are willing to take some damage, the ability below is far more powerful. Aurablast - 350 AP (Kwigon Blade) - Active "Unleash a detonation of ki, dealing damage to units in a small area." Dealing damage in a cross formation like a normal magick attack would, this is EXTREMELY POWERFUL for a melee attack. It is a physical attack and would do a lot of damage to weak defence units such as archers and mages. This and Air Render make the Fighter a class that is one to be reckoned with. Air Blast - 350 AP (Air Blade) - Active "Breathe a rush of air, dealing wind damage to units in a cone in front of the user." A powerful wind attack, this actually does deal some elemental damage. It will work like the Breath attacks the Dragoon has, except they don't have Wind Breath. Back Draft - 400 AP (Flametongue) - Active "Focus the user's ki into a fiery attack, dealing fire damage to the target and the user." A very strong attack, deals a lot of fire damage to the enemy, but it will deal some damage back to yourself, so make sure you have some healers before you use this excessively. Bonecrusher - 250 AP (Wygar) - Reaction "Counter attack after taking physical damage. Always deals greater damage than taken." An advanced form of Counter, this ensures that whatever happens, you will deal more damage than you would take. Not particularly useful when you're dead, but its giving damage to the enemy that is important. Doublehand - 250 AP (Venus Blade) - Passive "Wield one-handed weapons with both hands. Deals additional damage." A useful passive ability if you aren't going to use a shield or any other passive ability, dealing more damage to the enemy is always a good thing if you plan to go melee. *********** **PARIVIR** *********** "The Parivir are swift and skillful combatants who finish their foes with flair." Requirements - 4 Fighter Abilities, "The Eastwatch" Quest Complete This is a new class for the Humes, and they are a powerful class as well. They have the best physical attacks in the game, but that is coupled with the fact that they have the weakest defence, phyiscally, in the game. However, use of this as a secondary subset is harder because they always require a bladed weapon, no bludgeons or bows to use their abilities with. --==Flair==-- Wind Slash - 200 AP (Murasame) - Active "Engulf the target in a whirlwind. Deals wind damage." Another useful skill, but doesn't always require a blade to do it, the attack is quite powerful, but the fighters already have a powerful version of this, so it isn't necessary. At least it is ranged. Blade Rush - 200 AP (Ashura) - Active "Strike the target with the face of the blade, attempting to IMMOBILIZE them. Requires: Bladed Weapon." A high chance to hit, but dealing less damage to the enemy, it has a chance to make sure your enemy doesn't move. Problem is, you need to be next to them to do this, and doesn't disable their arms, so they can still attack you. Iai Blow - 300 AP (Osafune) - Active "Attack with a swift and deadly swing. Has a small chance of striking a vital organ, killing the target. Requires: Bladed Weapon." This is an interesting attack, it has a small chance of instantly killing the enemy, regardless of their health bar or level. Interesting, it only has a SMALL chance of killing them, not a definite chance. Lifethread Blade - 400 AP (Adazakura) - Active "Strike repeatedly at the target with a dark-forged blade. Marks the target with DOOM. Requires: Bladed Weapon." A powerful attack that can inflict the DOOM debuff, but one of the few attacks that are of the Dark element. Doom will make sure that the target will due soon, if not sooner. Skyfury Blade - 400 AP (Kotetsu) - Active "Strike repeatedly at the target with a lightning-imbued blade. Drives the target into a BERSERK rage. Requires: Bladed Weapon." This is sort of like the above attack, it deals lightning damage to the enemy, is very powerful, but sends them on BERSERK, which makes them go all out attack, but not good if you're receiving the damage. Hoarfrost Blade - 400 AP (Ama-no-murakumo) - Active "Strike repeatedly at the target with a frozen blade of ice. SLOWS the target. Requires: Bladed Weapon." The ice version of these blades attack, this SLOWS the target, which makes the enemy wait longer before they can get a turn, which is very useful if they are a fast mover or they are dangerous. Shimmering Blade - 400 AP (Nosada) - Active "Strike repeatedly at the target with a flaming blade to CONFUSE them. Deals Fire damage. Requires: Bladed Weapon." A nice debuff to the enemy, CONFUSE will make the enemy confused whether to hit you or their own allies. The enemy is hostile to you anyway, so any chance that the enemy won't deal damage to you, instead to their allies, it good regardless. Unburden Sould - 400 AP (Sumihomura) - Active "Sacrifice the user, completely restoring all allies' HP and curing them of debuffs." An extremely useful ability, especially if your team is suffering and your unit is about to be killed by the enemy. That fact use can get your unit back, provided you followed the law, makes it very useful for your team. Dish out a lot of damage, do this, come back, rinse and repeat. Strike Back - 250 AP (Bone Plate) - Reaction "Avoid all basic attacks and launch a counter attack in return." This is one of the best reaction abilities you are going to come across. You get to avoid the attack, don't take damage, and attack back. This is useful so much that all Humes with this class available should get it," Death Strike - 150 AP (Bracers) - Passive "Makes the user lucky. Increases the chance to score a critical hit." The fact that there are more useful passive abilities and that this has been overridden with the fact that there are privileges that makes all your units luckier, and you don't want to rely on criticals to win the game. ********* **NINJA** ********* "Powerful swordsmen who can wield two weapons at once and use ninjutsu to evoke the power of wood and earth." Requirements - 4 Thief Abilities The best part of the Ninja is the Dual Wield ability, the ability to use two weapons in two hands, or two weapons at once. Place that with the fact that you can carry this over with other classes, you can have a powerhouse, such as Parivirs with two powerful swords, attack all at once. The skills of the Ninja are good debuffs on enemies, so you might want to carry it around. --=Ninjutsu==-- Throw - 100 AP (Kunai) - Active "Throw a piece of equipment from the party's inventory to deal damage to the target." This is a pathetic skill as usual, why you would waste your valuable equipment on the enemy is beyond me. You might as well as sell it for some loot. Water Veil - 250 AP (Murasame) - Active "Deals water damage and SILENCE the target." A useful attack, since it deals WATER damage, which is not as common as you would think, and SILENCE is always a good debuff on a spellcaster, since they are deadly enough as it is. Fire Veil - 250 AP (Ashura) - Active "Deals fire damage and CONFUSE the target." A useful debuff on the enemy, CONFUSE can help you dish out some more damage since the enemy is confused whether their allies are friends or not. Damage is always good. Earth Veil - 250 AP (Osafune) - Active "Deals earth damage and SLOWS the target." Again, another useful debuff since SLOW will make sure your enemy gets their turns later than they used to. Best on if the enemy is rather fast or can be a threat to your team. Wood Veil - 250 AP (Kotetsu) - Active "Damage and IMMOBILIZE the target." There's no wood damage, but since this is from a range, it can slow down the enemy and make sure that can't wreak havoc on the front lines. Gold Veil - 250 AP (Kiku-ichimonji) - Active "Damage and BLIND the target." Your enemy is too fascinated with shiny objects and is too blind to see well. Not as useful as it could since the BLIND debuff has been nerfed a fair bit in this game. Unspell - 300 AP (Ama-no-murakumo) - Active "A chant that quells the target's spirit. Neutralises buffs." A useful one for the enemy monsters that you are going to face, especially since the enemy has so many damn bunnies and their damn buffs. This rids the enemy of their buffs, making them easier to fight. Oblivion - 400 AP (Masamune) - Active "ADDLE the target with a cloud of poison-laced dust." While it will not deal much damage to the enemy, the poison is a nice touch though, since very turn, they will take damage. Use only if you cannot really kill them, or want to slowly kill them. Critical: Haste - 250 AP (Ninja Gear) - Reaction "Gain HASTE when user becomes HP Critical." Useful if you have some healing spell or something along those lines, but giving yourself more turns when you are Critical is not a good idea, you can easily just get killed. Strike Back is far more useful. Dual Wield - 990 AP (Rangetsu-denbu) - Passive "Wield one weapon in each hand. Enable the user to attack twice." The best passive ability ever, this has two uses. First of all, this is used to basically deal double damage with two blades instead of one, and the fact that you can learn two abilities off the weapons at once since you have two weapons wielded. The main reason people always get their Humes to become Ninjas. *************** **ILLUSIONIST** *************** "Mages who weave illusion to overcome their foes." Requirement - 2 White Mage Abilities, 4 Black Mage Abilities A powerful class, their skills can hit the entire enemy party in a single go, but they are extremely MP intensive, and with MP starting at zero, it will disadvantage the illusionist to a large scale. You need someone to restore their MP, or get abilities to quicken their MP rate to ensure that are an effective unit. --==Illusion==-- Prominence - 250 AP (Firewheel Rod) - Active "Harness the fires of the sun in a tremendous explosion. Deals fire damage to all foes." The first of the elemental attacks, it does nice fire damage to the enemy. Tempest - 250 AP (Thunder Rod) - Active "Unlease a lightning storm mighty enough to rock the heavens. Deals lightning damage to all foes." The second of the basic elemental attacks, it deals lightning damage to all foes. Freezeblink - 250 AP (Sleet Rod) - Active "Freeze the water in the air into razor-edged shards. Deals ice damage to all foes." The final basic elemental attack, it deals nice ice damage to the enemy. Rockfall - 300 AP (Terre Rod) - Active "Pummel the foe with a barrage of rocks. Deals earth damage to all foes." An advanced elemental attack, it dishes out earth damage to all foes. A fair few monsters have this as Immune or Absorb however. Wild Tornado - 300 AP (Thor Rod) - Active "Buffet foes with a mighty tornado. Deals wind damage to all foes." Wind damage is common enough, and several enemies have a resistance to it. Deluge - 300 AP (Chill Rod) - Active "Send a torrent of water to scour the battlefield. Deals water damage to all foes." The final advanced elemental attack, water damage is useful since there are a fair few monsters weak against water, and it is not as common as you would think. Stardust - 300 AP (Stardust Rod) - Active "Call down a shower of meteors from the sky. Deals damage to all foes." No elemental power, but deals more damage than an elemental illusion as a result. Star Cross - 300 AP (Crown Scepter) - Active "Bathe the battlefield in a divine light. Deals holy damage to all foes." A powerful power since it will deal holy damage. My only gripe is that there is no dark power, since all the other elements are covered. Absorb MP - 250 AP (Lordly Robe) - Reaction "Gain MP equal to the MP cost of offensive magicks that target the user." A useful power, since resistance is high among magick users. But try to find a enemy who will target you since it deals such little damage. Useful in theory, but not in practice. Halve MP - 400 AP (Luminous Robe) - Passive "Reduces the MP cost of abilities by 50%" VERY USEFUL. MP is very hard to come by, and the stronger spells require a lot of MP to use. This will seriously reduce the amount required, and you can easily see that it is going to be helpful to you. ********** **HUNTER** ********** "Hunters stalk their prey with powerful bows. They're at their finest when fighting monsters and other beasts of the wild." Requirements - 3 Archer Abilities The Hunter is the best class when facing enemy monsters, but is also useful when not facing monsters, with their powerful moves, especially their ULTIMA MOVE. One class to be respected, or they will show you why. --==Trapping==-- Advice - 100 AP (Twin Bow) - Active "Share the tricks of the hunting trade with the target. Raises chance to score a CRITICAL HIT." Useful when you are starting when you aren't in attack range with your bow on the enemy, but next to your own units." Oust - 150 AP (Windslash Bow) - Active "Force target monster to flee from the battlefield." Like Parley, a useless ability. You can force the enemy off the field, but the problem is, for it to be effective, they need to be on low health, and on that rate, you might as well just kill them for the loot and the EXP which is better. Sonic Boom - 200 AP (Cranequin) - Active "Use the latent power of the user's weapon to send out a shock wave. Damages units in a small area." A useful ability if you are going to target units in a cross shape. Damages enemies like a mage would, but it will only deal damage to all units the normal damage you can deal with the bow. Hunting - 250 AP (Hunting Bow) - Active "A well-aimed attack meant to fell the hunter's prey. If the attack kills the target, you also obtain loot." This is a weaker attack, but there is a point to this attack. You get some extra loot if you manage to kill the enemy in this manner. But you are looking at about 10 damage per shot, so they need to be near death for this to work. Vitals Shot - 300 AP (Elfin Bow) - Active "Aim for the target's vitals. Inflicts various debuffs." A useful one for inflicting a debuff, but the problem is that it is too random and you cannot control what you will get. Sidewinder - 300 AP (Hades Bow) - Active "A powerful attack that strikes with whip-like speed. Deals additional damage to monsters." I liked the previous animination of a sword dropping, but this will do. It basically deals double your normal damage against monsters, but normal damage against non-monster creatures. Good accuracy, good damage. Counter Force - 300 AP (Master Bow) - Active "ADDLE target monster." Making sure that the monster cannot fight is a good move, but Sidewinder will kill the enemy, so why don't you do that? Ultima Shot - 990 AP (Seventh Heaven) - Active "Derived from the most powerful of magicks, this is the ultimate hunter ability." Really want to do some damage? Use this on a target, and you will see what overkill really means. Regenerate - 200 AP (Gaia Gear) - Reaction "Gain REGEN after taking damage." Useful as long as your unit doesn't get killed. REGEN is useful, but it only gives back about 10 HP per go, and there are much better Reaction abilities than this. Attack Up - 150 AP (Nike Bow) - Passive "Raises ATTACK. Increases physical damage dealt." Useful to the point that Regenerate is useful. It will make you stronger, yes, but there are many other things that can make your unit better instead, such as Dual Wield, Geomancy, etc. ******** **SEER** ******** "With skills to restore magick power, this is among the most potent jobs to which a hume can aspire." Requirements - 4 White Mage Abilities, "The Cat's Meow" Quest Complete A mix of the intermediate skills of the Black Mage and the White Mage, they are quite useful, but not as useful as a fully fledged Black Mage or White Mages. Plus, they have a pretty cool attack, listen to them, or they will smack you with their book. --==High Magick==-- Cura - 200 AP (Battle Folio) - Active "Magickally restore a large amount of HP. Deals damage to undead." This is the only cure spell that your seer is going to get, so you might want to make use of it. They don't have access to Cure or Curaga, so be careful. Esuna - 200 AP (Urutan Annals) - Active "Magickly purge the target of debuffs." Not upstanding to the White Mage big brother of this spell, it has many practical uses on the battlefield and will remove most of the debuffs that you are going to encounter on the battlefield. Raise - 200 AP (Veil of Wiyu) - Active "Magickally revive the target, removing KO. Deals damage to undead." Useful if you don't have access to the Re-Raise or Auto-Raise spells, this is going to make sure your troops don't stay down. Remember that they will come back on HP Critical and not half or full health. Fira - 250 AP (Mage Manual) - Active "An improved verson of Fire. Deals even greater fire damage to its target." Their fire offence magick skill, this is the strongest level of Fire you can use with the Seer. Blizzara - 250 AP (The Arnath Glyphs) - Active "An improved version of Blizzard. Deals even greater ice damage to its target." Useful because this is the strongest Ice magick spell that your Seer will have access to. Thundara - 250 AP (Enavia Chronicles) - Active "An improved version of Thunder. Deals even greater lightning damage to its target." The final magick, this is the strongest Thunder spell you've got, you don't have Thundaga Recharge - 350 AP (Tome of Ending) - Active "Absorb the latent mist in the air. Restore user's MP." Very useful first round since you are going to need a lot more MP for your Seer if he or she is going to use those spells. They aren't very powerful, but they do suck up more MP than you can regenerate per round, so keep that in mind. Magick Frenzy - 550 AP (Edaroya Scriptures) - Active "Damage units in a small area with a combination of magick and physical attacks." Does damage like Fira would, but the difference is that its damage will target the Defence Stat of the enemy as well as their Resistance Stat. Useful against enemy Mages and Fighters since they lack one or the other. You can easily avoid this if you have your Fighters learn some Magick, giving them a bit more Resistance. Replenish MP - 350 AP (Black Robe) - Reaction "Gain MP equal to damage taken." If you run low on MP and like rushing the Seer to the front lines, this is quite useful. An uncontrollable Blood Price as it were, but the problem is that you might need to look at the Health Point bar of the user before ending him into the front lines. Pierce - 200 AP (Red Robe) - Passive "Spells cast by the user are unaffected by REFLECT." A pretty pointless ability because it isn't very often that your enemy has the Buff of REFLECT on their units, and even if they do, your melee fighters will make sure that they aren't a thorn in your backside. Ribbon-Bearer - 300 AP (Orb of Minwu) - Passive "Enables the user to equip a ribbon, regardless of their current job." A useful ability if you can get hold of the orb, this allows you to have a ribbon, which basically prevents a lot of debuffs on your character. Its use is for those who cannot have a healer on the battlefield, either due to the law or it simply isn't practical. ************* **BLUE MAGE** ************* "These peculiar mages can learn the abilities of beasts and monsters, making them their own." Requirements - 1 Black Mage Ability Blue Mages again warrent a guide of their own, they have 20 learnable skills, which I find is rather small, compared to the amount of monsters in the game and the amount of abilities that would contain overall. Anyway, Blue Mages need to learn their skills with the Learn Passive ability equipped. Without the Learn ability on the Passive Slot, the skills that can be learnt by the mages would not be learnt. If you have the complete set of the Blue Mage abilities, you should use them as a secondary set of abilities, in addition to your job's abilities since these are EXCELLENT support abilities. They can easily change the battlefield with a blink of an eye, so make sure these guys are one of the playing cards in your hand. To learn these abilities more quickly, you need a Beastmaster. A Beastmaster can effectively increase the learning rate because you can control the enemy and force them to do moves that they otherwise won't do. Also, you can use CHARM on the monsters in hopes that they can buff your own units, but it isn't as effective as a Beastmaster. Or you can use confuse, but that is totally relying on chance, which is not a good thing. --==Blue Magick==-- Magick Hammer - Baknamy - Active "Smite foe with a mysterious hammer. Deal damage to target's MP." A useful ability to the Fighter/Mages, those with very little MP to play around with. And the thing you've gotta live about this is the great sound effect of the boink! Sounds great, Bad Breath - Malboro - Active "Let out a fetid belch to BLIND, SILENCE, and POISON targets in a cone in front of the user." This is quite a useful ability to use on your enemies. This causes a whole army of debuffs that you can use on your enemy. Blind makes sure that the enemy can't hit you, Silence means that mages can't do anything, and Poison means a slow painful death. Eerie Sound Wave - Malboro - Active "Send chills through the target with a focused sound wave. Neutralises buffs." Quite a useful ability if you have a Tinker and the dice weren't rolling for you today. Anyway, this is quite useful, because some monsters, such as Sprite, have the annoying ability to use Reraise and such and that is a buff. Dragon Force - Drake - Active "Unlock the target's true potential. Raises ATTACK and MAGICK." This is powerful because it raises your attack overall. This makes your physical and magickal attacks more powerful, and explains why you need a beastmaster or a very charmed drake to get this ability. Expose Weakness - Drake - Active "Intimidate the target, lowering its DEFENCE and RESISTANCE." A nice useful debuff against the enemy, lowering their defence and their resistance will effectively make the enemy weak against both physical and magickal attacks, which makes your attacks stronger against them. White Wind - Sprite - Active "A healing wind that mends allies' wounds. Restore HP equal to the user's HP." A very useful move if you have a high amount of HP left and your allies don't have all that much left for battle. For high HP units, this is going to be a very useful healer for a relatively low MP cost. Mighty Guard - Drake - Active "Envelop the target in a shimmering aura. Raises DEFENCE and RESISTANCE." At as useful as you would think, the Barrier spell is the same as this since Protect and Shell pretty much raises Defence and Resistance, which in turn decreases the damage taken from physical and magickal attacks. Night - Lamia - Active "Harness the power of the night to send all units into a magickal SLEEP." This is little problematic because all units includes your own units to Sleep. You certainly don't want your own units to sleep because Sleep pretty much guarantess a 100% hit against your unit. Quake - Headless - Active "Cause the ground to tremble, dealing earth damage to units in a small area." It is pretty much the same as the sandstorm move without the ability to blind your units and you get to target an area. Apparently, it is the only spell that can be used in conjunction with Magick Frenzy. Roar - Werewolf - Active "Let out a bestial roar, removing buffs from all units." This is quite a useful move against your enemies because Roar is such a powerful move against all units. It pretty much gets rid of all defensive buffs, as well as Prime for your Hand-Cannon users, because that technically counts as a buff. Sandstorm - Antlion - Active "Summon a sandstorm. Deals earth damage and BLINDS units in a small area." This is the better version of the Quake ability because Quake does the same thing, earth damage to a small area, but it does not have the ability to Blind the enemy units. Screech - Wolf - Active "Emit a piercing shriek to damage and CONFUSE the target." When it is used by enemy monsters, it is one to be feared, but remember that Confuse is the weaker version of Charm. However, it does deal damage as well, so you might use it as an offensive move, rather an a pure debuff. Self-Destruct - Bomb - Active "Sacrifice the user, dealing heavy damage to surrounding units." This, of course, is best used when your unit is in HP Critical move and is surrounded by two or more units. Also, if you have the ability to resurrect your fallen units, provided you haven't broken the law, this is a very powerful attack move. Unction - Flan - Active "Cover units in a small area with vicious OIL." This is a new debuff, and it is only, and only useful for units of you have the ability to use Fire moves against the enemy. Oil basically doubles the damage taken by affected units if fire magicks are used against them. And the animation looks cool. War Dance - Dreamhare - Active "A dance that boosts the morale of units in a small area. Raises ATTACK." This is a nice opening move because all your units are in a nice bunched area and best used on your frontline units who can going to be using their swords to attack the enemy. Angel Whisper - Sprite - Active "An angelic voice offers words of encouragement to the target. Restores HP and grants RERAISE." This would be a very powerful move for your units since Reraise automatically saves your unit from being KO when they are meant to be. It seems that the White Magick for the Blue Mage is more powerful than a dedicated White Mage. Limit Glove - Great Tortoise - Active "Unleash the inner power of the user when HP Critical deaving heavy damage. The user's HP must be in single digits to perform the attack." A very powerful move in the early levels, but the problem with this move is that in later battles, you aren't going to be in HP Critical and single digits for long, it is hard to get to this stage, but if you get there, you are going to unlease a very powerful attack. Matra Magick - Great Tortoise - Active "Switch the target's HP and MP." A very powerful move, and if you have the magick to use this, it can be used as both a healer and a killer. If you can manage to get your enemy's MP to really low levels, this ensures a HP Critical state, and if you own unit has high MP but low HP, switch and that will make sure that they will be healed. A very useful move, one of the best that the blue mage has to offer. Roulette - Ahriman - Active "Randomly KO one unit. Does not distinguish between friend or foe." This is a really hard move ot use because there is always a chance that the roulette might backfire and hit yourself instead of hitting the enemy. And to learn this is a pain, you need to have Reraise on your unit and it needs to be a target of this, quite hard. Doom - Deathscythe - Active "Place a curse of DOOM on the target." A useful move, but Doom means it needs 3 turns to kill the enemy and in that time, you can easily Matra Magick the enemy and finish off with a single smack to the face and that will end it. MP Shield - 450 AP (Mirage Vest) - Reaction "Damage taken depletes users MP rather than HP. Has no effect when the user has no MP." A very useful ability but considering that MP is much harder to come by, it makes it harder to use. Also, remember that the damage that is not taken by the MP will be sent to your HP, so early on, it will probably be a 10 HP buffer. Learning - 100 AP (Blue Saber) - Passive "Learn the blue magick equivalent of any special monster abilities that target the user." This is extremely important if you want to learn the blue mage abilities. You need this as a passive ability in order to learn the moves of the enemy monsters but you might want a beastmaster to get the buff such as White Wind that the enemy won't give you freely. Immunity - 250 AP (Survival Vest) - Passive "Neither buffs nor debuffs can be removed from the user." Not a very useful ability that you have. You are getting replacing it with learn or even some skills like Geomancy. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ [4.03] Moogle Classes *********** **ANIMIST** *********** "Animists have learned the secret language of the animals, tapping their primal powers in battle." Requirements - None Although they don't have a decent stat growth, they have extremely powerful support powers that would make even the strongest units think twice about fighting you. In fact, these are one of the units that prove that Moogles are the best support class in the game, period. --==Calling==-- 100% Wool - 100 AP (Glass Bell) - Active "Wraps the unit in soft, fluffy wool. Grants PROTECT and SHELL." Fairly useful as the first turn move, both shell and protect make sure that your units get a bit more defence against enemy units than they would have originally. Sheep Count - 150 AP (Hurdy-Gurdy) - Active "Summon a flock of softly bleating sheep. Lulls units in a small area to SLEEP." A useful power with about 50 to 60% chance of success. This basically makes at most, 5 units to sleep for about 3 to 5 of their turns, or until a unit hits them. Useful as an annoyance power, ie, support class. Catnip - 200 AP (War Trumpet) - Active "Bombard the target with catnip, driving it into a BERSERK frenzy." Useful if the enemy is a mage, it will pretty much send them into a melee frenzy, which kills off their support power. Works well on healers as well since they are singlemindedly focuses to attacking you. Chocobo Rush - 250 AP (Satyr Flute) - Active "Send a flock of charging Chocobos to trample anything in their path." You know how this works, it attacks anything in a straight line for a good piece of damage. With this, if the enemy decides to stack one behind the other, make them pay for it. Cuisine - 350 AP (Heal Chime) - Active "Feed the target a hearty meal that sticks to the ribs. Fully restores HP." You'd wonder why I said the animist as a wonderful support class, well here it is. The single handedly the best healer in the game, resotres HP, which at the end part of the game, is increasingly hard to do to full health. Tail Wag - 350 AP (Frigid Viol) - Active "CHARM the target with the wiles of a cute barnyard animal." CHARM is one of the most annoying debuffs that you can have, so why don't you use it back on them. CHARM makes the enemy fight for you, which is a pretty good thing on any day of the week. Friend - 400 AP (Shining Lute) - Active "Summon an Esper such as Ifrit or Ramuh to aid in battle." Remember, it isn't a Scion, which are extremely powerful, far more powerful than an Esper. Basically, the same sort of attack the Summoners have to fight with. Toadsong - 400 AP (Blueleaf Future) - Active "This mysterious song transforms the target into a TOAD." TOAD is an extremely powerful debuff, where the enemy is a toad, and can't really attack, except the fact that they can jump for you for a few HP damage, like 2 HP. Use it if possible. Archer's Bane - 200 AP (Green Beret) - Reaction "Avoid all bow-based basic attacks." Relatively useful becasuse the animist is going to be facing a lot of arrows since they are pretty good support and aren't going to be on the front line a lot. ********* **THIEF** ********* "Dextrous and nimble, thieves excel at stealing from the unwary and evading blows." Requirements - 1 Soldier Ability Thieves are quite a useful class, but one of their most powerful and useful abilities are gone. Steal Abilities seriously quicken the skills you can learn, but they are seriously quick, and counter is quite useful. --==Thievery==-- Loot Level 1 - 100 AP (Scramasax) - Active "Steal the target's Lvl. 1 Loot." This basically means you steal all unranked loot. Look at the Loot Item list for more info. Steal Gil - 200 AP (Jackknive) - Active "Steal the target's gil." This basically steals a varying amount of Gil off your enemy, and is only useful if you need the money, otherwise, just don't. Steal Items - 200 AP (Kard) - Active "Steals the target's items." It steals the items that you can use, such as eye drops, phoenix downs and holy waters. However, there are some rare items, such as Dark Matter. Note that you cannot steal their equipment. Loot Level 2 - 200 AP (Rondel) - Active "Steal the target's Lvl. 2 Loot." This steals their Rank 1, or Level 2 Loot. These are generally worth about 200 to 500 Gil at the shops. Loot Level 3 - 300 AP (Swordbreaker) - Active "Steal the target's Lvl. 3 Loot." This steals enemy's Rank 2, or Level 3 Loot. These are worth even more gil, at about 500 to 1000 Gil on average at the shops. Loot Level 4 - 400 AP (Cinquedea) - Active "Steal the target's Lvl. 4 Loot." This steals the best loot in the game, and generally speaking, the most valuable loot. They are worth a lot at the shops and used in the best of the weapons. Steal Limelight - 400 AP (Orichalcum Dirk) - Active "Steal the
