FORGET EVERYTHING YOU'VE SEEN .:. 00/001 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Welcome my friends to... my FAQ. We will begin today a very special quest in | | | | search for the secrets of the vast land in Final Fantasy IX. In this guide | | | | you will know every single secret and hidden stuff in the 9th reincarnation | | | | of the mythical series that is Final Fantasy. Isn't that great folks!? | | | | Coming way back, since 1987 when Square created it for the Nintendo's NES | | | | the Final Fantasy series made this game the top RPG worldwide and for the | | | | past 15 years Square has delighted gamers all over the world with the nr.1 | | | | RPG ever. (But I still prefer Chrono Cross) | | | | | | | | This FAQ is NOT one of those enormous FAQs with every little detail on how | | | | to get through the game. This is only a quest for the secrets. The rest is | | | | up to you (or, up to another person's guide). Of course I will give you some | | | | hints about Zidane and co., but if you're looking for a super-dupper-faq, | | | | you're in the wrong place. Now, some language stuff. I'm not American, nor | | | | British, nor Australian, or anything like that, which means... some mistakes | | | | might have been made (I just can't help it). So, don't get all upset for the | | | | grammatical errors. Before we start please read the rules and regulations of | | | | this FAQ. Thank you! | | | | | | | | Well... It's time to say goodbye. Although I might do some more updates on | | | | this FAQ I've decided to stop producing them. I just don't find it as funny | | | | or rewarding as before. People are rude, stupid and egocentric and school | | | | takes more and more of my time... you can keep mailing and stuff but at this | | | | point I can't assure you that I will reply... | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. SPOILERS ALERT!!! .:. 00/002 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | As you can guess, this FAQ contains an infinite number of spoilers.

COMPLETE STORY .:. (skip if you're allergic to spoilers) 01/001 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | In Alexandria a festival is starting... a group of actors will perform "I | | | | want to be your canary" for several people including the Queen. They arrive | | | | in a ship called Prima Vista but it seems that these "actors" are in fact a | | | | group of thieves called The Tantalus and they pretend to kidnap Princess | | | | Garnet. As Prima Vista flies over Alexandria a very strange kid arrives to | | | | see the play until he finds out that his ticket is a fake... fortunately he | | | | meets a rat-kid named Puck that helps him get inside the castle. | | | | As the play starts Zidane (the main character of the game) and Blank (one of | | | | his friends) sneak inside the castle to proceed with the plan. While going | | | | up the stairs they encounter a strange who seems to be in a hurry... It's in | | | | fact princess Garnet who intends to run from the castle and see the world. | | | | After a frenetic chase by Steiner, the Captain of the Knights of Pluto and | | | | bodyguard of the princess they accidentally end up in stage. Zidane and | | | | Garnet quickly start improvising and manage to continue the play. | | | | Meanwhile Vivi and Puck are being chased by the guards for entering without | | | | a ticket. As Vivi runs he ends up in the middle of the stage (also) and | | | | while trying to stop the guards with his fire power he accidentally burns | | | | Garnet's clothes that kept her disguised. Queen Brahne gets way mad and | | | | starts launching giant harpoons to trap the ship and canons to destroy it at | | | | all cost while Steiner was fighting with Zidane, Vivi, Garnet & Co. | | | | The Prima Vista manages to escape but suffers to much damage and eventually | | | | crashes in Evil Forest from where no one was ever able to get out. | | | | Zidane gets thrown out of the ship and Vivi, Steiner and Garnet are missing. | | | | He goes on exploring the forest in search for them but as he sees them | | | | Garnet is kidnapped by a plant monster and Vivi is trapped by another. After | | | | freeing Vivi they return to the ship and plan to save the princess. Baku | | | | refuses to put his crew in jeopardy so Zidane goes on alone with Vivi and | | | | Steiner. When they reach Garnet she's being kept by a huge plant monster and | | | | they engage in battle with it. Blank appears to help and after defeating the | | | | plant they start being chased by minor plant monsters. They manage to escape | | | | the Evil Forest but Blank sacrificed himself and turned into stone as did | | | | the whole Forest. | | | | The group now needs to go through the Ice Cave so they can reach the top of | | | | the mist. The mist is very dangerous... it invades your spirit and your | | | | mind. It also hosts various monsters and evil creatures. While going through | | | | the Ice Cave they are struck by a powerful blizzard that knocks the party | | | | out. Zidane managed to wake up and checks what is causing the blizzard. He | | | | encounters a creature that calls itself Black Waltz Nr. 1. After defeating | | | | him the party proceeds to the village of Dali. From here on Garnet changes | | | | her name to Dagger. | | | | When they arrive to Dali, people start acting strange and Vivi is kidnapped. | | | | Zidane and Dagger quickly try to save him and find a secret factory | | | | underneath the village. Meanwhile Steiner goes to the Observatory Mountain | | | | trying to know when the next ship arrives. Zidane & co. keep on exploring | | | | the factory and see various machines processing mist, making strange eggs | | | | that turned out to be... Black Mages just like Vivi!!! (shocking isn't it??) | | | | These Black Mages seemed dolls and they were being shipped to Alexandria | | | | Castle. | | | | Finally a ship arrives but they are suddenly stunned by the arrival of a | | | | Black Mage... Black Waltz Nr.2... after defeating the darn thing all the | | | | party boards. They quickly realise that the cargo ship is controlled by | | | | Black Mages! (Getting strange isn't it??) Zidane immediately manages to get | | | | a hold of the ship and changes it's direction to Lindblum. | | | | The Black Waltz Nr. 3 appears and tries to kill Vivi but the Black Mages | | | | protect him and so the Black Waltz kills them all... that's when Vivi kicks | | | | his ass. But one thing is clear, Queen Brahne ordered the 3 beasts to search | | | | for Garnet. They reach Lindblum and ask to see Regent Cid... who is | | | | shockingly an Oglop!!!!! He was turned into an Oglop by his wife (seems that | | | | Regent Cid was a very famous lady's man) before leaving with his Hilda | | | | Garde 1 airship that was able to fly without mist. We come to know that Cid | | | | was the one that ordered The Tantalus to kidnap the princess. Seems that he | | | | was worried about the Queen's behaviour recently and by keeping a promise to | | | | Garnet's father he decided to try to save her but keeping the low-profile. | | | | After a while we also know that Baku and his crew managed to escape the Evil | | | | Forest. | | | | Zidane goes into town and meets an old friend, Freya who was in Lindblum for | | | | the Hunting Contest... After the festival is over a message comes from | | | | Burmecia, they were being attacked by a powerful army of Black Mages. Cid | | | | quickly sends the airships protecting the border with Alexandria but Freya | | | | still wants to go by herself. Zidane also wants to go and Vivi also but they | | | | have to wait before the gates were opened. They had a lunch but the food had | | | | a sleeping weed in it that made everyone faint. It was Dagger the guilty!!! | | | | She wants to return to Alexandria and put some sense into her mother's head. | | | | Steiner gladly escorts her since that were his intentions since the | | | | beginning. | | | | When they wake up the party moves on to Burmecia but in the way they gain a | | | | new pal as Quina joins the party at Qu's Marsh. In Burmecia they find | | | | Brahne, Beatrix (a powerful knight and a feared woman in all the land) and a | | | | mysterious man which Brahne calls Kuja. They were planning to attack Creyra | | | | next, a village built in a giant tree and protected by a powerful sandstorm. | | | | The party tries to stop them but Beatrix beats them in a flash. | | | | Meanwhile Dagger and Steiner reach the Summit Station where they find 2 of | | | | the Tantalus members, Cinna and Marcus. Cinna was returning to Lindblum | | | | while Marcus was trying to find the Supersoft that could bring their friend | | | | Blank back to life. Dagger quickly offers to help and so they go to Treno on | | | | board of a train. In the middle of the trip the Black Waltz Nr. 3 appears | | | | once again (what a pain in the ass)... just to get his ass kicked AGAIN!!! | | | | The gang finally reaches Treno and in the middle of the night they enter a | | | | store to steal the Supersoft (of course Steiner is against it) only to be | | | | found by Doctor Tot, Dagger's former teacher. Tot said he would give them | | | | the item later and after a while they meet him again in his tower where he | | | | gave them finally the Supersoft. They also tell them they need to reach | | | | Alexandria as soon as possible and so Tot tells them about a tunnel that | | | | connects Treno and Alexandria. They travel through the tunnel riding a | | | | Gargant. When they arrive at Alexandria's Castle by Gargant Roo Zorn and | | | | Torn trap them. Steiner says he returned with the princess but the 2 clowns | | | | reply he was considered a traitor by Queen Brahne. | | | | Meanwhile Zidane & co. reach Creyra right in time to save Puck from being | | | | killed by a Antlion. Afterwards a ritual starts to make the sandstorm | | | | stronger. The strings of the harp that was being used for the ritual break | | | | and the villagers start getting worried about this omen as the sandstorm | | | | stops and the King begins to consider a possible invasion from Brahne. | | | | In Alexandria, Dagger talks to her mom and Kuja who puts her into a deep | | | | sleep so that they can extract from her the Eidolons she has. (For those who | | | | haven't been paying attention Eidolons are the summons that Dagger can use | | | | in battle. Very powerful magical spirits.) Zorn and Torn manage to extract | | | | them... Brahne intends to use them... for what??? Can't you guess??? | | | | Meanwhile Creyra starts being attacked by Brahne's forces and the villagers | | | | take shelter in the village's chapel. Yet Beatrix steals the stone that gave | | | | the power to the harp of the ritual and escapes through a sort of a | | | | teleporting system. Our friends use this same system to reach Brahne's Red | | | | Rose - The Queen's ship. Using the extracted Eidolons Brahne uses their | | | | great powers that Kuja tolled the Queen they possessed and summons Odin. | | | | Odin throws his sword and completely destroys the giant tree and so, Creya | | | | Settlement in a blink. Brahne is delighted by the Eidolon's power but | | | | Beatrix is frustrated since she believes her forces would be more that | | | | enough to attack Creyra and Burmecia. She meets the queen and delivers her | | | | the jewel she stole, the first of the 4 jewels. Brahne shows no appreciation | | | | and Beatrix gets sad as the queen just keeps giving more and more orders. | | | | The queen orders the execution of Garnet for escaping with the royal pendant | | | | leaving Beatrix in a shock. Knowing this, Zidane teleports to Alexandria to | | | | try saving Garnet. They meet with Steiner and Marcus, as Marcus goes to Evil | | | | Forest to save Blank the party will go to the secret dungeons to save | | | | Dagger. After saving the princess and beating up Zorn and Torn they face | | | | Beatrix that after kicking Zidane's ass sees the princess in a deep sleep | | | | and uses her powers to awake her from the hypnosis. | | | | Brahne arrives and orders the execution of all of them. Freya and Beatrix | | | | stay behind as the rest of the party escapes but Steiner feels he has to | | | | return and turns back to help the ladies. Meanwhile Zidane and the rest of | | | | the party get caught (again) by Zorn and Torn only to be freed by Marcus and | | | | Blank who apparently is OK now... | | | | Once again they ride the Gargant to Treno but a Ralvuimago chases them and | | | | they end up in Pinnacle Rocks near Lindblum. In here Garnet finds Ramuh, god | | | | of the thunder who accepts on being her Eidolon. | | | | Meanwhile Zorn and Torn aren't allowed to get near the Queen for letting | | | | Dagger escape. Brahne summons 2 hunters (Lani and a mysterious red-haired | | | | man) and offers them a reward for the pendant that Dagger has with her, the | | | | 2nd jewel, giving them full permission to do whatever it takes to retrieve | | | | it and also to murder Vivi. She is also interested in Zidane and also offers | | | | a reward to whoever kills him. The red-haired guy seems particularly glad | | | | about it. As they leave a soldier informs Brahne they are ready to leave... | | | | (getting exciting isn't it?) | | | | While leaving Pinnacle Rocks the party sees Brahne invading Lindblum with | | | | the Black Mages and summoning Atomos, leaving the town in ruins and | | | | destroying the whole Industrial District. They rush to the city to talk to | | | | Cid. The regent puts the party up to date on how Kuja's the responsible for | | | | Brahne's weapons and that he's probably from the Outer Continent. Brahne | | | | demanded the control of Lindblum's airships and of the Falcon | | | | Claw - National Treasure of Lindblum and the 3rd jewel. Confident that they | | | | need to stop Kuja they rush to Fossil Roo that apparently is a connection to | | | | the outer continent. They reach the place only to be stopped by Lani who | | | | wants the pendant back. She is defeated and the party is allowed to proceed | | | | to the Outer Continent. As they reach the new continent they notice there's | | | | no mist in here. The party proceeds to Conde Petie where they find a Black | | | | Mage, but not a normal Black Mage, he talks... They chase him and discover a | | | | hidden village... | | | | As they enter the Black Mage Village Vivi goes hysterical and tries to find | | | | anyone to talk with. The villagers seem very frightened and by talking to | | | | some of them Zidane & co. discover they were tools of war that gained a | | | | conscience in the battle field. Terrified, they ran and ended up hiding in | | | | that place. Vivi is sad about all this and how the Black Mages were treated | | | | and about the secret he found out, that Black Mages have a short lifespan, | | | | and when their time is up they will simply stop. | | | | In the inn, later that evening Zidane starts telling a story to Dagger about | | | | man who didn't know where he came from but he had a adoptive father. One day | | | | he left home in search for his birthplace but never found it. He returned to | | | | his adoptive father and he smacked him up for running away but the son was | | | | happy and he knew that was his real home (the only reason I'm telling this | | | | story is because the man is actually Zidane). Then you'll see Vivi talking | | | | to a Black Mage about stopping and death. In the morning they decide to | | | | return to Conde Petie and reach a place called the Sanctuary, to where some | | | | Black Mages saw Kuja heading. | | | | They go to the Sanctuary but before that a very funny scene, seems that only | | | | married couples can reach the Sanctuary. And so, Zidane "marries" Dagger and | | | | LoLoL =) Vivi "marries" Quina. On the way they find a thief, a little girl | | | | called Eiko. Later you find this girl has also the power to summon eidolons. | | | | The party follows to her home... Madain Sari. | | | | They arrive and see a village in shambles, a very sad sight. Eiko decided to | | | | cook a dinner while Zidane and Dagger visit the Eidolon Wall. At dinner Eiko | | | | reveals more about the Iifa Tree (aka Sanctuary) and how it is protected by | | | | a seal. Apparently the ancient summoners that lived in that village tried to | | | | summon a Eidolon but failed, as a result they sealed the location fearing | | | | another tragedy (what do you mean by another??). After a lot of discussion | | | | the party reaches the Tree and notice all the mist and how the Iifa Tree | | | | must be the source of all the mist. Eiko removes the seal and they manage to | | | | reach the creature responsible for creating the mist. After defeating it the | | | | mist stops and the party returns to Madain Sari as a Moogle warns that a | | | | precious thing was stolen. | | | | When arriving they notice that a very sacred jewel of Madain Sari was | | | | stolen, the 4th jewel. In the Eidolon Wall Eiko is kept hostage by Lani. She | | | | stole the 4th jewel and wants the 2nd jewel, Dagger's pendant, in exchange | | | | for Eiko's life. Meanwhile the red-haired arrives and tells Lani to take a | | | | hike. | | | | After defying Zidane to a fight and lost the red-haired guy leaves. | | | | That afternoon Dagger has a vision on how she was actually from this village | | | | and she saw it's destruction by a giant eye in the sky causing a mass | | | | destruction. | | | | Next day they decide to return to the Iifa tree and wait there for Kuja, and | | | | the red-haired guy (aka Amarant) joins your party. They reach the top of the | | | | tree just as Kuja arrives, but Brahne also arrives in her naval fleet and | | | | she wants to take Kuja down as he's the only one powerful enough to mach her | | | | forces. The only thing Brahne wants is total domination and she starts | | | | firing at Kuja while he summons monsters to attack Brahne's forces. | | | | Meanwhile Dagger tries to help her mother and runs to the place there the | | | | summoners failed to retrieve a summon in hope she could gain it's power. In | | | | fact she gains it but this Eidolon attacks with a powerful tsunami which | | | | would kill her mother instead of helping her. | | | | Tired of the fight Brahne summons Bahamut - the dragon king. Kuja seems to | | | | have been expecting that moment and brings forth the giant eye in the sky, | | | | killing the Black Mages and invading Bahamut's mind turning him against | | | | Brahne... the party finds the queen ashore near her escape pod with several | | | | deadly injuries after Kuja escaped. She eventually dies but she comforts | | | | Dagger and shows her regrets before that... Using the queen's escape pod | | | | they return to Alexandria with a hold of the 4 jewels. | | | | Garnet is now queen of Alexandria and the party decides to attend to the | | | | Card Tournament in Treno since the kingdom is now in peace. After the | | | | tournament they talk with Cid who was in town to test the new Hilda Garde... | | | | but Eiko is very afraid, something is happening in Alexandria. | | | | Bahamut controlled by Kuja scaring the townspeople attacks Alexandria. | | | | Dagger watches helpless and goes to a part of the castle she was never | | | | before. In the sky appears the Hilda Garde and Eiko's 2 Jewels begin to | | | | sparkle, she jumps but the power of the jewels hold her fall. Together with | | | | Dagger they both pray for the Holy Judgment. The castle transforms and | | | | Alexander appears, the most powerful Eidolon and quickly disables Bahamut. | | | | Kuja is amazed and tries to control it with the Invincible just like he did | | | | with Bahamut. But someone is already inside the ship... a old man named | | | | Garland and he kills Alexander. | | | | The party awakes in Lindblum after being saved. Dagger is depressed because | | | | of her mother and the kingdom, she doesn't talk and in this part she will be | | | | a bit useless in battle. Cid tells Zidane & Co. about his discovery on how | | | | Kuja has a hold of the Hilda Garde 1 and uses it to travel. They try to turn | | | | Cid into human again but they fail. | | | | Now travelling by boat the party decides to visit Black Mage Village again | | | | to know more things about Kuja and the location of his headquarters. Thanks | | | | to the info given by the Black Mages they manage to enter Kuja's palace only | | | | to be captured. Kuja makes a proposition to Zidane, he chooses a party to go | | | | on a quest of he kills all of them. Zidane accepts and the 4 chosen are | | | | dropped in Oilvert, a ancient place surrounded by a anti-magic field. In | | | | here the gang will discover a lot from that eye in the sky (aka Invincible) | | | | and they see how that thing is in fact a ship. They also know more about a | | | | strange planet called Terra and on how it declined with no chance of | | | | stopping it. The party retrieves the Gulug Stone and returns to the palace. | | | | Meanwhile the others left behind find a way to escape and they run to see | | | | Zidane and put a stop to Kuja but Eiko is captured by Zorn and Torn (those | | | | backstabbing clowns...) and they all manage to escape in the Hilda Garde | | | | only to be followed by Zidane & co. aboard the Blue Narciss. | | | | They follow Kuja to Esto Gaza in the Lost Continent and proceed to Mount | | | | Gulug where Kuja is hiding. They can see Eiko and Zorn and Torn are trying | | | | to retrieve her Eidolons as they did to Dagger. They fail because Eiko isn't | | | | 16 years old (the minimum age needed for the Eidolons to be extracted) but | | | | Kuja insists he needs a more powerful Eidolon so he can beat Garland. The | | | | extraction continues but Mog protects Eiko and enters into a Trance | | | | revealing his true form, an Eidolon named Madeen. Kuja is amazed by the | | | | power a subject gains as he enters in Trance... After Kuja escapes the party | | | | finds Hilda, Cid's wife who was being held by Kuja. | | | | Back in Lindblum Hilda transforms Cid back into human and prepares a | | | | conference to explain what she knew. Hilda told Kuja was not from this | | | | world. Kuja is from Terra and he called this planet Gaia and how he's using | | | | it to achieve an even greater power. She also refers a passage to this new | | | | world located in the Shimmering Islands but a seal seems to prevent anyone | | | | from entering. They prepare to leave to Ipsen's castle to break the seal | | | | until they find Dagger is missing... they search everywhere and Zidane | | | | finally locates her in Alexandria... Dagger can talk again and uses a knife | | | | to cut her hair... Finally the party goes on to Ipsen's Castle and | | | | successfully retrieves the Keys to break the seal. The party realises all | | | | the keys must be inserted at once and so they split up... Steiner and Vivi, | | | | Amarant and Freya, Eiko and Dagger, Zidane and... Quina. They manage to | | | | break the seal and through Shimmering Islands they reach Terra. | | | | As they arrive Garland is waiting for them but he disappears... Zidane & Co. | | | | reach Bran Bal and they see the Invincible... Dagger faints, but an | | | | astonishing revelation is made... That planet is filled with some kind of | | | | Zidane clones exactly like him. They call themselves the genomes. Also these | | | | Genomes are empty, with no emotions but Zidane had a special purpose and | | | | that's why he was different. | | | | Wanting to know more Zidane meets Garland at Pandemonium. Garland reveals | | | | his plan to turn Gaia into Terra and how Zidane was a very special Genome | | | | and Kuja was also a special Gemone. Garland also reveals that Kuja is | | | | nothing but a temporary soldier to fill in the place that should be occupied | | | | by Zidane when he grew up. Kuja didn't accept that and dumped Zidane in Gaia | | | | hoping he would die before claming his place. Zidane doesn't accept | | | | Garland's ideas also and wants to take him down at all cost but the old man | | | | puts Zidane in a sleep. When Zidane awakes he starts thinking about all the | | | | things he discovered (and quite frankly he gets somewhat temporarily | | | | insane). The rest of the party knocks some sense into his head and they head | | | | to fight Garland. After kicking the old man's ass Kuja appears and he now | | | | controls the Invincible. Using the Invincible powers to manage souls Kuja | | | | uses the souls that the ship has to make him reach a trance. Insane and more | | | | powerful than ever Kuja casts Ultima, destroying the whole planet. Using the | | | | Invincible the party escapes with all the genomes on board. | | | | When returning to Gaia they notice that the whole planet is covered in Mist. | | | | After leaving the Genomes in Black Mage Village the party rushes to the Iifa | | | | Tree... they enter Memoria. | | | | Memoria is a place where the memories of everyone since the beginning built | | | | a parallel world... Through Memoria they revive moments since the dawn of | | | | times and finally reach the end of their adventure, they have to save the | | | | powerful Crystal that sustains the balance of the world from being | | | | destroyed. In a frenetic battle Kuja is defeated but his Ultima Attack puts | | | | the party in the limit of their strengths. Yet a strange voice sounds and | | | | Necron talks to Zidane & Co. and how he will use the Crystal to remove the | | | | things that exist and create a new world from scratch. Zidane and the party | | | | oppose and gain enough strength to win the ultimate battle. Before the | | | | explosion killed them caused by the death of Necron Kuja uses his last shred | | | | of power to teleport the party to safety. Outside Memoria Cid aboard the | | | | Hilda Garde 3 and Beatrix aboard the Red Rose patiently waited for our | | | | friends. They all board the Hilda Garde but Zidane goes back to save Kuja. | | | | He locates him but is suddenly struck by the Iifa Tree and dies. Some time | | | | later life returns to his normal course and The Tantalus return to | | | | Alexandria to perform "I want to be your canary". Dagger still misses Zidane | | | | but she believes she has to go on with her life. Quina is now a chef, | | | | Amarant continues with Lani, Steiner finally shows his love for Beatrix, | | | | Freya is now with her long lost love Sir Fratley and they plan to | | | | reconstruct Lindblum, Vivi supposedly married and has many sons who came to | | | | watch the play and Eiko is with Cid and Hilda and you can see her treat Cid | | | | as Father... both Cid and Hilda seem to like the idea. And the grande | | | | finale, in the middle of the play Zidane reveals himself and runs to | | | | Dagger... you can finally say... and they lived haply ever after. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:.

He's a cool guy and he has some awesome FAQs on GameFAQS.com so | | | | check it out... | | | | **************************************************************************** | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. ENTER THE GAME .:. 03/001 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Hello everybody!!! Tell me... did you ever thought of making your own FAQ? | | | | No!? Then get outta here... Oh, wait, did you say yes? Well then, welcome | | | | aboard... I have to tell you that being a FAQmaster is not an easy task, | | | | you'll have to have creativity, sense of humour, a good knowledge of the | | | | game and the FAQ has to be created, maintained and updated. If all these | | | | things don't bother you please proceed. | | | | | | | | Nothings stops you from doing your own FAQ but be sure of what you want to | | | | do before starting it so you don't end up leaving the project by half. First | | | | of all you'll need to decide what game you want to talk about, choose a game | | | | that is easy but that you also like and own. When making your first FAQ take | | | | it easy and don't worry if things start to be chaotic. Next, collect as much | | | | information as you can... if it's info you already know than you're safe but | | | | if you collect info that features on another person's guide you'll have to | | | | credited him/her. Ask as many people as you can and don't forget to credit | | | | them, ever if they're friends of yours. | | | | | | | | Every FAQ needs a layout, a good layout is the one that distinguishes your | | | | guide from every other one. Layouts aren't that hard to create but if you | | | | see a layout on another FAQ and you love it you can use it as long as you | | | | credit the person. Next... FAQs need some basic things... a table of | | | | contents to help guide people, a version history so that people know how the | | | | FAQ has evolved, some rules when contacting you (these are very important | | | | otherwise people will fill your account with junk) and also *very important* | | | | a copyrights section... every game is owned by a company... if you not refer | | | | that company in the FAQ as owner of the game you can have some serious | | | | troubles if you're spotted. | | | | | | | | FAQs can spot different aspects of a game... walkthroughs, secrets, tips | | | | in-depth, characters, bosses, items, shops, cars... the list is endless... | | | | You'll also have to decide on what you'll focus. If you don't want to have | | | | much troubles choose a boss or characters guides but if you think you're | | | | ready for the Big League of FAQs then you can do an all-in-one FAQ. | | | | | | | | When your FAQ is completed it's time to publish it... GameFAQs will | | | | probably be the best choice. Each site will have a different way for you to | | | | submit your FAQ... in some you can do it online, in others you'll need to | | | | create an account. The usual way is to submit it my mail so create one if | | | | you don't have it. People may also want to contact you so don't forget to | | | | leave an e-mail address on the FAQ. | | | | | | | | All in all just remember, you CAN do it... it will take time and energy but | | | | you'll eventually get there. Not only that but you'll obviously improve as | | | | time goes by. You can mail me at any time if you feel some troubles on | | | | creating your FAQ. FAQmasters... support the newbies and teach them all you | | | | know... believe me... that's the best you can do as a FAQmaker! | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:.

GETTING STARTED .:. 04/001 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | A very small percentage of individuals may experience epileptic seizures | | | | when exposed to certain light patterns or flashing lights. Exposure to | | | | certain patterns or backgrounds on a television screen or while playing | | | | video games, including games played on the PlayStation game console, may | | | | induce an epileptic seizure in these individuals. Certain conditions may | | | | induce previously undetected epileptic symptoms even in persons who have no | | | | history of prior seizures or epilepsy. If you, or anyone in your family, has | | | | an epileptic condition, consult your physician prior to playing. If you | | | | experience any of the following symptoms while playing a video game | | | | dizziness, altered vision, eye or muscle twitches, loss of awareness, | | | | disorientation, any involuntary movement, or convulsions IMMEDIATELY | | | | discontinue use and consult your physician before resuming play. | | | | | | | | Set up your Playstation according to the instructions. Be sure the power is | | | | off before introducing/removing the disc. Insert the disc 1 of the game and | | | | close the disc cover. Insert the game controllers and memory card (to save | | | | the game you will need one free block) and turn on the Playstation. It is | | | | recommended that you DO NOT insert any peripherals or Memory Cards while the | | | | Playstation is turned on. Follow on-screen instructions and begin the game. | | | | | | | | For you health, you should rest about 15 min. for each hour of play. | | | | Do not play when tired or suffering from lack of sleep. | | | | | | | | If you want to start a new game remember you will require a free block on | | | | your memory card to save the game, otherwise you will end up in nowhere. | | | | Highlight if you want to begin a new quest or choose | | | | to continue a previously saved game. | | | | To save your game, talk to a Moogle, those cute furry creatures. To call a | | | | Moogle on the world map press the square button. When changing disks you | | | | will also be prompted to save your game. | | | | | | | | When you reach the end of a disc, you will be asked to insert the next disc. | | | | DO NOT TURN OFF THE POWER, open the disc cover and insert the correct CD. | | | | If you have progresses to a later disc you can begin the game with that disc | | | | instead of disc 1. Just begin the game using the relevant CD instead of | | | | disc 1 yet remember that only disc 1 has the intro movie. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:.

ATE, TRANCE & CO. .:. 04/003 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Active Time Events (ATE) let's you see what other characters are doing, | | | | maybe revealing other details on the character or even rewarding you with | | | | various items. When the ATE symbol appears on the screen press SELECT to see | | | | it. If the text is in grey, the ATE will be viewed automatically. You can go | | | | through the whole game without seeing any ATE, but they sometimes give you | | | | various hints and items hard to find. What a nice thing to do don't you | | | | think? Be careful that ATE's change according to your choices and actions. | | | | If you choose an ATE, the following ATE's will depend on the choice you | | | | make. | | | | | | | | When a character's Trance Gauge is filled up it will make a character go | | | | into Trance. In Trance, the character will have more attack power and it | | | | will also have special abilities that they cannot use unless they're in a | | | | Trance. Every time a character takes an action, the Trance gauge will start | | | | to decrease until it reaches 0 and the character leaves the Trance. The | | | | Trance Gauge will also drop to 0 if a character is inflicted with Zombie | | | | status or when the battle ends while the character is in Trance. | | | | | | | | In battle you will also have an Active Time Battle (ATB) gauge. A character | | | | can only issue a command when it's ATB gauge is filled up. The time it takes | | | | the gauge to fill depends on the character's Speed and current status. | | | | The HP (Hit Points) and MP (Magic Points) are also very important. When a | | | | character's HP reaches 0 it will be KO'd and will not be able to fight | | | | unless revived. Abilities consume MP, it you don't have enough MP, you | | | | cannot use the ability. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. CHARACTER STATS AND ELEMENTS .:. 04/004 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | As the characters level up, the stats values will increase. You can also | | | | change these values when you equip different items. Each stat is important | | | | and the higher they get, the better you character will become... | | | | All attacks have a elements type. Each element can be more effective against | | | | a certain elements than others. To master the elements is essential for your | | | | survival against bosses. Unleashing the wrong element type can, instead of | | | | damaging a monster in fact cure him. Non-Elemental attacks have no elemental | | | | type so you don't need to worry about it. | | | | | | | | Stats | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Speed - Speed determines how fast the ATB Gauge fills up | | | | Strenght - Strenght determines the severity of a physical attack | | | | Magic - Magic determines the damage caused by magic e summon attacks | | | | Spirit - Spirit affects the character's attack and defence.

ALL ABOUT ABILITIES .:. 04/006 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Equipping an item brings certain benefits. Not only they offer protection | | | | but they also let you learn various skills. Until a character has learned an | | | | ability, she/he will have to have that item equipped to use it in battle, | | | | otherwise you won't have it. Once it has learn the skill the character can | | | | use it without needing the item. | | | | To learn an ability a character needs AP. AP is a reward you get after a | | | | battle. Bosses are the ones who give more AP, but monsters also give some. | | | | The AP needed for a character to learn a skill depends on the skill and on | | | | the character. Some characters might learn the same ability faster than | | | | others. If the ability gauge turns red and has 3 stars in it, you have | | | | completed learning the skill. | | | | An item might also bring an ability that a character cannot learn, these | | | | ones appear in grey. This means the current character cannot learn that | | | | skill. | | | | | | | | There are 2 types of abilities one of them is the Action Abilities that will | | | | provide the character with extra commands, most of them require MP in order | | | | to be used and some even change during Trance. You can recognize them by a | | | | red diamond-shaped slot with the letter A. | | | | The other abilities are the support abilities. These ones use magic stones | | | | instead of MP and will help your character without having to issue a | | | | command. You can recognize them by a green diamond-shaped slot with the | | | | letter S. | | | | Whether fully learned or still being learned, a Support Ability can only be | | | | used if a Magic Stone is allocated to it. Some Abilities take few Stones, | | | | other take a lot of them.

THE ACTORS .:. 05/001 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | They are 8, they are cool and they are ready to kick some asses!!! These are | | | | the young heroes you'll have in your group to help save the world | | | | | | | | Zidane Tribal | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Member of the group of thieves, The Tantalus. Once included in the plot that | | | | meant to kidnap Princess Garnet, he now protects her Highness in an | | | | adventure that will end up saving the world. | | | | | | | | Age 16 | | | | Occupation Thief | | | | He often says "You don't need a reason to help people." | | | | Feeling Virtue | | | | | | | | Special - Steal & Skill | | | | Steal will make Zidane try to steal an item from the enemy if he has one | | | | and Skill let's you use various types of skills than Zidane learns along | | | | the way. | | | | | | | | Trance - Dyne | | | | In trance, Zidane will be able to use special abilities to damage the | | | | enemies with extremely powerful non-elemental attacks. | | | | | | | | | | | | Vivi Ornitier | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A young Black Mage very innocent and pure. He casually meets Zidane & co. in | | | | a play and follows them around the rest of the story in search for his true | | | | origin... | | | | | | | | Age 9 | | | | Occupation Black Mage | | | | He often says "How do you prove that you exist? Maybe we don't exist..." | | | | Feeling Sorrow | | | | | | | | Special - Black Magic & Focus | | | | Black Magic let's Vivi use his magical powers while Focus rises his Magic | | | | Attack Power for the rest of the battle. | | | | | | | | Trance - Double Black Magic | | | | In trance, Vivi will be able to use his Black Magic twice in the same turn. | | | | Unless the enemy has a counter-attack your turn won't be interrupted. If | | | | the enemy has a counter-attack (like the Yan's snort/float) you turn will | | | | be interrupted so the enemy casts his attack. | | | | | | | | | | | | Adelbert Steiner | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Captain of the Knights of Pluto and bodyguard of Princess Garnet. He and | | | | Zidade don't get along at all but they both feel they have to protect | | | | Dagger. | | | | | | | | Age 33 | | | | Occupation Royal Knight and Captain of the Knights of Pluto | | | | He often says "Having sworn fealty, must I spend my life in servitude?" | | | | Feeling Dilemma | | | | | | | | Special - Sword Art & Sword Magic | | | | Sword Art enables Steiner to use many techniques he might have learn. Sword | | | | Magic uses a combination with Vivi, the number of sword magic available | | | | depends on how many Black Magic Vivi possesses. If Vivi faints or is unable | | | | to perform the magic, the attack will be cancelled and Steiner will | | | | waste his turn. | | | | | | | | Trance - Extra Power | | | | In trance, Steiner's attacks will do much more damage than what they | | | | usually do. I believe his defence also raises. | | | | | | | | | | | | Garnet til Alexandros 17th (aka Dagger) | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Princess of Alexandria and a very pretty one, but she is not happy with her | | | | life. After leaving the castle to see the worlds she will change her name to | | | | Dagger so as others do not recognize her. | | | | | | | | Age 16 | | | | Occupation Heir to the throne of Alexandria | | | | She often says "Someday I will be queen, but I will always be myself." | | | | Feeling Devotion | | | | | | | | Special - Summon & White Magic | | | | Summon will make Garnet summon a Eidolon while White Magic let's her use | | | | her healing and status changing magic. | | | | | | | | Trance - Eidolon | | | | In trance, Garnet can use the Eidolon command. When an Eidolon is summoned | | | | it will keep attacking until the Trance ends without having to summon him | | | | again. | | | | | | | | | | | | Amarant Coral | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | One of the most wanted bandits in the city of Treno. His life completely | | | | changes after meeting Zidane & co. Although arrogant he has a soft heart | | | | inside. | | | | | | | | Age Unknown | | | | Occupation Wanted man & Mercenary | | | | He often says "The only dependable thing about the future is uncertainty." | | | | Feeling Arrogance | | | | | | | | Special - Flair & Throw | | | | Flair makes Amarant use his various techniques, if he has learned any. | | | | Throw will make him throw a weapon in you inventory list (careful for you | | | | will loose whatever weapon you throw). | | | | | | | | Trance - Multi-Flair (aka Elan) | | | | In trance, Amarant's Flair abilities will affect multiple targets instead | | | | of single ones. I believe his Flair abilities are also powered-up. | | | | | | | | | | | | Freya Crescent | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A warrior dragon from Burmecia who is in search for her long lost love Sir | | | | Fratley. The use of the spear marks Freya as a dragon, never in the Final | | | | Fantasy series a dragon had a happy ending. | | | | | | | | Age Unknown | | | | Occupation Burmecian Dragon Knight | | | | She often says "To be forgotten is worse than death." | | | | Feeling Despair | | | | | | | | Special - Jump & Dragon | | | | Jump will make Freya rise high in the sky for about 3 turns, while she's | | | | there she can't be attacked, then she will come down and strike a single | | | | enemy. Dragon let's Freya use her Dragon Powers. | | | | | | | | Trance - Power Jump | | | | In trance, Freya's Jump skill will do a lot more damage and it will affect | | | | multiple enemies instead of single ones. | | | | | | | | | | | | Quina Quen | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Quina was a chef at Alexandria Castle and you find him at Qu's Marsh | | | | were he lives with his master learning the ways of the tribe, it then | | | | joins you to see the world and learn more about all types of food. | | | | | | | | Age Unknown | | | | Occupation Chef at Alexandria Castle | | | | He often says "I do what I want! You have problem!?" | | | | Feeling Indulgence | | | | | | | | Special - Eat & Blue Magic | | | | Eat will make Quina eat an enemy when he's weak and learn any special | | | | skills the monster might offer. Blue magic let's Quina use any magic | | | | she/he might have already learned from the various enemies. | | | | | | | | Trance - Cook | | | | In trance, Quina will cook the monster and learn any abilities he might | | | | have to offer you. Yet you still need to weaken the monster in order to | | | | Cook it. | | | | | | | | | | | | Eiko Carol | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A young child with the power to summon Eidolons, she protects the village of | | | | Madain Sari with a little help of her friends - the Moogles. When she meets | | | | Zidane, she falls in love for him, but she can't separate him from Garnet. | | | | | | | | Age 6 | | | | Occupation Protector of Madain Sari | | | | She often says "I don't wanna be alone anymore..." | | | | Feeling Solitude | | | | | | | | Special - White Magic & Summon | | | | White Magic will let Eiko use her magical skills just like Garnet and | | | | Summon will also enable her to summon an Eidolon. | | | | | | | | | | | | Trance - Double White Magic | | | | In trance, Eiko will have an ability identical to Vivi's Trance Ability. | | | | Eiko can use her White Magic twice. Unless the enemy has a counter-attack | | | | your turn won't be interrupted. If the enemy has a counter-attack (like the | | | | Yan's snort/float) you turn will be interrupted so the enemy casts his | | | | attack. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. SUPPORTING CAST .:. 05/002 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | They are not part of the group, they are not important but not in all | | | | insignificant. You can beat them, you just can't get rid of them | | | | | | | | Queen Brahne | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | She's Garnet's mother who turned from a sweet queen into a greedy queen. She | | | | wants to rule the whole world and is using highly powerful weapons to | | | | accomplish her goals. | | | | | | | | Regent Cid | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Cid is the regent of Lindblum who was turned into an Oglop after cheating on | | | | his wife. He's also the man... or Oglop, in charge of the production of the | | | | new steam engine and of the Hilda Garde 1, 2 & 3. | | | | | | | | The Tantalus | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A group of thieves lead by Baku who intended to kidnap Princess Garnet by | | | | orders of Regent Cid. | | | | | | | | Beatrix | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A fearsome knight whose skills are well-known all across the land. She's | | | | cruel and heartless but deep inside she knows that what she's doing is | | | | wrong. Eventually she will join forces with you to pay her debt... | | | | | | | | Zorn and Thorn | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A couple of evil and backstabbing clowns. First they supported Brahne but | | | | they quickly changed to Kuja's side. | | | | | | | | Doctor Tot | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | He was Garnet's teacher. A scholar who tries to unveil the mystery behind | | | | Eiko and her ability to summon Eidolons. | | | | | | | | Quan | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | He's Vivi's "grandfather". He actually found Vivi and took care of him. He | | | | was also Quale's master but abandoned him before he completed his training. | | | | | | | | Quale | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | He's Quina's master, who was abandoned by Quan in the middle of his training | | | | and now has the very though job of training Quina. | | | | | | | | Kuja | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | The man behind the sudden change of Queen Brahne. He also supplies her of an | | | | army of Black Mages that the Queen uses to divide and conquer. | | | | | | | | Garland | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | He was the man who created Kuja and teached him every thing he knows, but | | | | Kuja started questioning his orders and soon he intended to rule the world | | | | himself ignoring Garland. | | | | | | | | Black Waltz 1, 2 & 3 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | The ultimate Black Mages, with superior powers and more evil you could ever | | | | imagine. Zidane & co destroy the three of them. | | | | | | | | Black Mages | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Man-made, these nice guys were first used as a tool of war, but some of them | | | | started to gain thoughts of their own and ran away, hiding in a village on | | | | another continent. They quickly realised their lifespan is quite short and | | | | because of that they help Kuja when he promises to resolve the problem. Of | | | | course his lying, but they are quite naive. | | | | | | | | Sir Fratley | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | He is Freya's long lost love, you encounter him at the top of the Iifa Tree | | | | but he can't remember a single thing about his past. | | | | | | | | Puck | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Prince of Burmecia, we first find him when he helps Vivi early in the game. | | | | He is a bit like Garnet, he wishes to see the world and travels most of the | | | | time. | | | | | | | | Alleyway Jack | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A thief and a great card player, you find him in Alexandria and later in | | | | Daguerreo. If you find all the treasures he will give you the S-Rank Medal. | | | | | | | | Lani | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Lani is a bounty hunter ordered by Queen Brahne to bring the crystal that | | | | Garnet has at all cost. She is defeated in Madain Sari and later saved by | | | | Moogles, that's when she realises how greedy and selfish she was. | | | | | | | | Mog | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Mog is Eiko's best friend, they were born on the same day and since then | | | | they have been friends. Mog is a bit coward and although she loves Eiko, she | | | | is usually to afraid to save her. At Mount Gulug, Mog shows her true form | | | | when she turns into Madeen, a powerful Eidolon. | | | | | | | | Genomes | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | They are clones created by Garland to help him accomplish his plan. When | | | | Terra awakens, their bodies will serve as a host for the souls of the people | | | | of the planet. After Terra is destroyed all of them start living in the | | | | Black Mage Village where they learn anything they need to know about this | | | | new world. | | | | | | | | Mikoto | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A one-of-a-kind genome, sort of a special assistant to Garland. When Zidane | | | | arrives to Terra she will tell him the truth about his origin. | | | | | | | | Necron | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | The real mind behind Kuja's intentions, he uses Kuja as a simple pawn to | | | | reach the Crystal that maintains the balance of the world. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. ENVIRONMENTS .:. 05/003 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Just like in a multi-million dollars movie project, Final Fantasy IX has an | | | | infinite of environments from Terra to Gaia. | | | | | | | | Alexandria | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Kingdom ruled by Queen Brahne who has started using highly advanced weapons | | | | to conquer the neighbour kingdoms. Her only objective is to rule the planet. | | | | | | | | Burmecia | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | The first victim of Brahne's weapons. This city ruled by dragons was | | | | attacked by surprise with no chance of defending itself. Many of its | | | | habitants died while others seeked shelter in Creyra. In an attempt to help | | | | Burmecia, Lindblum sends it's powerful fleet leaving the border with | | | | Alexandria without protection. | | | | | | | | Creyra | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A giant tree that hosts a peaceful city. The kingdom of Creyra is protected | | | | by a powerful sandstorm yet it cannot stop Brahne's forces. When Brahne gets | | | | a hold of the stone that protected the city she summons Odin and completely | | | | destroys Creyra Settlement. | | | | | | | | Lindblum | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Without the border with Alexandria being patrolled Brahne's forces easily | | | | enter the city. Fearing a counter-strike Brahne summons Atomos leaving most | | | | of the kingdom in ruins. When in control Brahne demanded control of the | | | | kingdom's airships and of the National Jewel, the Falcon Claw. | | | | | | | | Treno | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | The city who never sleeps. Gamblers and lords, fighters and card players, | | | | scholars and thieves, where else can you get this? No one else has them, | | | | no one else wants them... | | | | | | | | Evil Forest | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Forest infested with monsters and evil creatures. After the defeating the | | | | Forest's Big Boss all the place turns into stone making it impossible to | | | | return there. | | | | | | | | Ice Cavern | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A cavern covered in ice that takes travellers to the top of the mist. | | | | | | | | Dali | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A small village who quit farming for a more productive and less exhausting | | | | work. They leaved agriculture and started making Black Mages for Brahne. | | | | | | | | Gizamaluke's Grotto | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Tunnel patrolled by Burmecian forces that is suddenly attacked by Brahne's | | | | forces. Without a chance for a counter-strike, everyone is eliminated. | | | | | | | | Pinnacle Rocks | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A place not visited by many people and rumours say Ramuh, the Thunder God | | | | resides there. | | | | | | | | Fossil Roo | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Tunnel that connects the Mist Continent to the Outer Continent. | | | | | | | | Conde Petie | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A little village of... goblins or things like that. Anyway, there's nothing | | | | to do there so leave it as soon as possible. | | | | | | | | Black Mage Village | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | All of the Black Mages that gained life have hide in this place. It's my | | | | favourite location in the game... | | | | | | | | Madain Sari | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Village of the lost summoners tribe. Once filled by people with the power | | | | to summon Eidolons it was destroyed by Garland when he tried to control | | | | their power. | | | | | | | | Iifa Tree | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | An apparently inoffensive tree will turn out to be a very important and | | | | deadly location. The tree actually serves as a connection between the planet | | | | and Terra. It's also the responsible for the Mist that infests the Mist | | | | Continent. | | | | | | | | Desert Palace | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | The home, secret underground base and headquarters of Kuja. Full of gadgets | | | | and many traps. | | | | | | | | Oeilvert | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | An ancient place protected by an anti-magic field. Inside you can find a | | | | complete back story about Terra and it's faith. The memory of those who | | | | lived in Terra is concealed in this city. | | | | | | | | Daguerreo | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A city built in honour of the sea lord - The Leviathan. Inside you will have | | | | a huge library with people who don't want anything more than knowledge. | | | | | | | | Ipsen's Castle | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | An old and very strange castle that holds inside the 4 keys to break the | | | | seal of the portal that connects Gaia to Terra. | | | | | | | | Esto Gaza | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A famous city for it's view over Shimmering Islands | | | | | | | | Shimmering Islands | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A portal that connects the Gaia with Terra and drains souls from the planet | | | | into Terra, disrupting the normal flow of souls. | | | | | | | | Bran Bal | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | A sort of a Genome Village. Very quiet and with a nice view. It's the only | | | | housing conglomeration in Terra you will see. | | | | | | | | Pandemonium | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Seems to be a place restricted to all the Genomes as it has a seal | | | | protecting it. Zidane meets Garland here and he also freaks out A LOT... | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | |__________________________________________________________________________________| __________________________________________________________________________________ | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | CHAPTER VI - ABILITIES, SKILLS, SUMMONS AND MAGIC | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | GRACIAS TO... | | | | **************************************************************************** | | | | Aaron Tadeo (aaron20@edsamail.com.ph for the info on Freya's Dragon's Crest | | | | and some on the info on Zidane's Thievery. | | | | The info on Zidane's Thievery was also helped by [Krazy_sk8er] | | | | All the info on the Misteries of the Eidolons and Quina's Frog Drop was | | | | taken from www.playonline.com so check out the site will ya!? | | | | **************************************************************************** | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:.

|______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. THE SECRET BEHIND THE DAMAGE .:. 06/002 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Mostly all abilities cause a certain damage that depends on a characters | | | | strenght and on the enemy's defense. Well... some of them have other factors | | | | to take notice of... | | | | | | | | Zidane's Thievery | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Many people have said that Zidane's Thievery is based on the number of | | | | sucessful steals performed by Zidane, I went to find this is only partially | | | | true, it's in fact a more complex calculation that will resolve this... | | | | | | | | I used Thievery and it made a damage of 8944. I stole an item and recorded | | | | again the damage... this time it made 8960 (a difference of 16 HP). I | | | | recorded about 10 steals and the difference was always of 16 HP. But this | | | | didn't make any sense because the damage could increase by level, but this | | | | didn't happen always. I was confused and so I thought that the answer could | | | | be in the stats of Zidane. I stripped Zidane of any equipment except for the | | | | Ultima Weapon and tried different items that would rise or decrease certain | | | | stats. When I equipped the Ninja Gear the result was astonishing... instead | | | | of making a damage of 8992 it made 9273. Ninja Gear increased Zidane's speed | | | | and defence. I later concluded the damage would also increase/decrease | | | | depending on the speed of Zidane. I made some calculations after that. I | | | | assumed that the difference of damage between each successful steal was | | | | always of 16 HP since the beginning of the game. | | | | | | | | Speed of Zidane: 32 | | | | Damage: 8992 HP | | | | If I divide 8992 by 16 I will get the number of steal Zidane | | | | has made since the beginning of the game... which is 562. I guessed that the | | | | damage was related to successful steals AND speed. so... | | | | | | | | 562 x 32 = 17984 | | | | This number was way big and I was almost abandoning this theory until I | | | | tried to divide it by 2... the answer was 8992... the damage made by | | | | Thievery. | | | | | | | | But there's something... | | | | This calculations cannot be made if any of the items equipped on Zidane | | | | increase his speed. Why? See for yourselves... | | | | | | | | Speed of Zidane: 33 | | | | Damage: 9273 (no steals made since the last time) | | | | Because the damage increased by 281 I can't divide it by 16 to calculate the | | | | number of steals. I know that the number is 562 because I hadn't made any | | | | steal since the last time I recorded the damage caused by thievery but if | | | | I divide it by 16 the result will be... 579,5625 making it impossible to | | | | calculate the number of steals. | | | | Yet, I know that the nr. of successful steals is still 562 and so 562 x 33 | | | | and dividing the result by 2 I will get 9273, the damage made by thievery. | | | | | | | | But there's a weak point with this calculations... If Zidane's speed | | | | increases by itself when he levels up how can you keep on calculating the | | | | nr. of successful steals?? It should be impossible. | | | | My guess is that the difference between steals changes as Zidane evolves. By | | | | doing this it's possible to calculate the nr. of steals even if the speed | | | | changes. In fact, at some point when I was using the Ninja Gear that same | | | | number changed to 17 HP by each steal. Once I removed the Ninja Gear the | | | | difference returned to 16 HP by each steal. This increase by 1 HP is a way | | | | to sort of keep the balance in the calculations. | | | | | | | | Some people, for instance, have other numbers... | | | | According to what I've seen on Aaron Tadeo's FAQ another person had a | | | | different gap between each steal. The difference of damage alternated | | | | between | | | | 14 and 15 HP. This person didn't give Zidane's speed but I managed to | | | | calculate it and Zidane's speed was 30. I also managed to calculate the Nr. | | | | of successful steals... but this time to calculate the Nr. of steals... | | | | | | | | Instead of... Damage of Thievery divided by 16 HP | | | | I had to do... Damage of Thievery divided by 15 HP | | | | | | | | Why not 14?? Because... | | | | The damage (which is of 3915 HP) divided by 14 is 279.64285 - IMPOSSIBLE | | | | While dividing it by 15 the result will be... 261. | | | | | | | | You see, the gap between each steal can change from person to person, all | | | | you need to do is find the number that will enable you calculate the Nr. of | | | | successful steals. One thing is certain... to calculate Zidane's Thievery | | | | damage all you need to do is... | | | | | | | | Zidane's speed x Nr. of steals divided by 2 = HP Damage | | | | That means Zidane will have to steal about 600 times for his attack to do | | | | 9999 HP of damage. Hope that cleared your mind about Zidane's Thievery... | | | | | | | | | | | | Freya's Dragon's Crest | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Freya's Dragon's Crest will rise its damage every time you defeat a dragon. | | | | Freya doesn't need to be in your party for the damage to rise. Freya will | | | | learn the Dragon's Crest ability from Holy Lance or Kain's Lance and uses | | | | 16 MP. The calculations are... | | | | | | | | HP Damage = Nr. of dragons killed to the power of 2 | | | | | | | | So... for the Dragon's Crest to do 9999 HP of damage the party will have to | | | | kill 100 Dragons - (100^2 = 10000). So go find yourself some Grand Dragons. | | | | | | | | | | | | Quina's Frog Drop | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Quina's Frog Drop Blue Magic will increase every time Quina levels up and | | | | depending on the Nr. of frogs caught. If you wanna learn the Frog Drop Blue | | | | Magic just eat a Giant Toad at Qu's Marsh. To catch frogs you can also do it | | | | at all the Marshes around the world. To calculate the damage made... | | | | | | | | HP damage = Quina's level x Nr. of Frogs | | | | | | | | So, all you need to do is eat a lot of frogs. I don't know what is the limit | | | | for frogs eating or if that number just keeps on rising. The fact is that | | | | after beating Quale, Quina can still eat frogs. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. THE HIDDEN POWER OF EIDOLONS .:. 06/003 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | When summoned Eidolons perform attacks or healing effects either in the | | | | party or in the target enemies but some of them have secrets behind these | | | | attacks... | | | | | | | | Odin's Zantetsuken | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Odin is a summon that will cause instant death to an enemy, but if he fails | | | | to do so, the enemy will suffer no damage unless you have Odin's Sword. | | | | There's some calculations you can do in order to know what's the percentage | | | | of change that Odin will kill the enemy which is... | | | | | | | | %Death = Dagger's Magic Power/4 + difference between Dagger's level | | | | and monsters' level | | | | | | | | | | | | Atomo's G-Force 199 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Atomos attack is of Demi type which means that he will chop off a percentage | | | | of the enemies total HP. This percentage doesn't change by monster but can | | | | change under various conditions... | | | | | | | | #1- Full animation/partial animation | | | | #2- Number of Amethyst in your inventory | | | | | | | | The calculations you have to do in order to know the percentage of HP Atomos | | | | takes are... | | | | | | | | #1- Full Animation - 30 + No of Amethyst = %HP | | | | #2- Partial Animation - 2/3 of the Full Animation | | | | | | | | By these calculations you can think... "If I have Boost equipped that means | | | | I will have a full animation... all I need is 70 Amethyst Stones and I can | | | | do a damage of 100% of the enemy's HP... I can beat the Yans just like | | | | that..." WRONG!!! In fact, Atomos can't do more that 9999 HP of damage. And | | | | that's the maximum damage you'll do to the Yans with Atomos. Nevertheless | | | | it's still useful... 9999 HP of damage on all targets... NICE!!! | | | | | | | | | | | | Phoenix's Rebirth Flame | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | When you summon Phoenix, she will cause Fire damage while reviving your | | | | entire party. Yet, there's a chance that Phoenix appears even when all your | | | | party is KO'd. Want to know how?? | | | | | | | | %Chance = (Number of Phoenix Pinion/256) x 100% | | | | | | | | Because the maximum Phoenix Pinions you can have is 99 the percentage is... | | | | %Chance = (99/256) x 100% = 38.671875% = 38.7% | | | | | | | | | | | | Carbuncle's Light | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Depending on Eiko's accessory Carbuncle can change it's Ruby Light into | | | | other attacks that bring on different protections... | | | | | | | | Emerald - Emerald Light | | | | Diamond - Dia Light | | | | Moonstone - Pearl Light | | | | | | | | | | | | Fenrir's Milleniar Decay | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Fenrir has also a secret and much cooler attack... the Milleniar Decay. In | | | | this attack giant blocks of rock burst out of the ground and Fenrir appears | | | | on top of them roaring. He jumps and is followed by worlf spirits charging | | | | at the enemy. Once he hits a huge hurricane appears damaging the enemy. I | | | | believe the element attack changes to Wind instead of Earth... anyway, to | | | | get this attack all you gotta do is equip Eiko with the Maiden's Prayer. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | |__________________________________________________________________________________| __________________________________________________________________________________ | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | CHAPTER VII - SECRETS & QUESTS | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | HAIL TO... | | | | **************************************************************************** | | | | Amy Dubs (axelrose007@hotmail.com) for telling me the mistake in some of the | | | | last letters in the MogMail... | | | | Tom Margett (doublehardbloke@hotmail.com) for the location of Mochos. | | | | Bobby_Corwen for the locations of the 9 Spirits and some of the various | | | | rewards they give and _XatAfaKap_ for info on some of the questions of the | | | | Ragtime Mouse. | | | | CyrUs_dA_vIruZ for telling me about the locations of the buyers and of the | | | | old man who trades the Magical Fingertip for the Excalibur and Man1AK-K1lleR | | | | for providing me info on the Excalibur 2, the tips on how to get it and the | | | | info on the letter written by Gilgamesh's brother. | | | | **************************************************************************** | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:.

Choose to | | | | explore any part of the house. Now you will be given the option to explore | | | | more. Choose to explore the same place until the Mayor's son go back to a | | | | deep sleep. If you searh in another place the Mayor's son will awake. Do | | | | this until you find the Mayor's Key. Enter the windmill and look below the | | | | plate full of Chocobo's food. You will find some Gil and the Burman Coffee. | | | | | | | | This side-quest has to be done before disc 4.

CHOCOBO'S HOT & COLD .:. 08/001 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Once you leave Lindblum trying to reach Gizamaluke's Grotto make a little | | | | detour and go on passing a bridge into a strange looking forest that you | | | | saw from the telescope. In here you will see a Chocobo and a Moogle, the | | | | Chocobo will run away but Mene - The Moogle, will give you some Gysahl | | | | Green, Chocobo's favourite food. All you need to do is use the Gysahl Green | | | | near some Chocobo tracks and he will come right away. With the Chocobo you | | | | can ride without facing any monsters which is quite useful, but most | | | | important, you will be able to dig up treasures and items with your Chocobo. | | | | How do you do that?? Keep on reading and you'll find out... | | | | | | | | After calling Choco enter again the forest and Mene will tell you the big | | | | secret. He will explain you that in that forest Choco can dig up various | | | | items for a small price (a Moogle has to eat ya know!?). To dig you only | | | | need to use the SQUARE BUTTON, depending on the noise Choco makes you can | | | | guess if you're close or far from the treasure, that's why the game is | | | | called... Chocobo's Hot & Cold. | | | | | | | | If Choco says... He means... | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | "Kweh" "You're not even close." | | | | "Kweh!?" "I sense something but it's far..." | | | | "Kwehhh!?" "Gettin' warmer..." | | | | "K-KWEHHH!!!" "Bull's-eye!!!" | | | | | | | | When you find a treasure a number will show up, this number represents how | | | | deep the treasure is buried. Valuable items are buried deeper underground. | | | | When it reaches 0 you will get the treasure. Every item also represents a | | | | certain number of points, these points are used to increase the Chocobo's | | | | beak level but also to trade for items. Mene will give you a list of thing | | | | you can buy with the points you gain... | | | | | | | | You can get a...

DIGGING SPOTS .:. 08/002 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Chocobo's Forest is the first of many digging spots. Each one of them will | | | | have different rules and prizes... | | | | | | | | Chocobo's Forest | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | You can only dig for a minute and you pay Mene 60 Gils per game. If within | | | | this minute you find and dig 4 items you will get a bonus of +10 sec. and | | | | every item you dig from that moment on will count double. | | | | Another rule is the 5 sec. timing. Let's say you dig up a Chocograph, if you | | | | dig another item within 5 sec. you will get a bonus of 5 points. | | | | If you manage to get 8 items Mene will force you to stop giving you a bonus | | | | according to the time left. | | | | A new area will be available when you get the Mountain Chocobo. Choco will | | | | be able to reach the ledges you couldn't reach before. | | | | | | | | | | | | Chocobo's Lagoon | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | This Lagoon is located on Salvage Archipelago and you can only reach it when | | | | you get the light blue Chocobo (the one that can go through shallow waters). | | | | The way to the Lagoon is like a maze but not that hard to reach. Just figure | | | | it out genius, is it that hard!? | | | | | | | | New rules in the Lagoon folks, half-time, half-price. 30 Gil for a 30 sec. | | | | play. Getting tricky isn't it? Yap, and also, it will be harder to dig | | | | because items will be buried deeper. If you find 4 items Mene will force you | | | | to stop giving the bonus you deserve and also, that 5 sec. timing will now | | | | award you with 10 points instead of 5. | | | | Once again a new area will be opened. This time you will need the Ocean | | | | Chocobo so you can go deeper into the Lagoon. | | | | | | | | | | | | Chocobo's Air Garden | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Even harder... A flying garden, how can you reach it? Or worse... how can | | | | you find it? To begin with, you will need a Golden Chocobo, after that you | | | | will need some Dead Pepper. Now, the Air Garden keeps on moving throughout | | | | the world. I've seen 5 locations until now... | | | | | | | | #1 - To the North of Salvage Archipelago | | | | #2 - Near Alexandria, close to the sea | | | | #3 - South of the Desert Palace | | | | #4 - Near Ipsen's Castel | | | | #5 - Right in the centre of the world map | | | | | | | | Anyway, you can locate the Air Garden by a relatively big circled shadow on | | | | the ground. When you locate it, give a Dead Pepper to Choco while is flying. | | | | Make sure you're right under the shadow et voil·! Here's the garden, and | | | | what a nice view it has... | | | | When you leave the Air Garden it will be located in the map, even if it | | | | changes location. | | | | Once again you will be able to dig up for a whole minute and you will | | | | receive a lot more points for each item. The 5 sec. timing will increase, | | | | this time you will receive 15 points. | | | | In the Air Garden there will be 2 sections, sometimes a treasure might not | | | | be in the section you are currently at and so Choco will need to move on to | | | | the other island which can consume a lot of time. | | | | | | | | | | | | Chocobo's Paradise | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | After collecting all Chocographs you will be able to reach the Chocobo's | | | | Paradise. The Paradise is located in a very familiar spot, that's right... | | | | the corner of the map, where you could find the Knights of the Round in | | | | Final Fantasy VII and the Deep Sea Research Centre where you would find | | | | Ultima Weapon in Final Fantasy VIII. Head to that spot and you will see a | | | | little island with a forest (for you to land) and a mountain (for you to | | | | break) that hides the entrance. | | | | | | | | In the Chocobo's Paradise you will see the Fat Chocobo. He will ask Choco to | | | | stay in the Paradise with him and the other Chocobo's but Mene will tell | | | | them that Choco isn't ready yet and so you can keep on searching for more | | | | treasures with Choco. Now, the Chocobo's in the Paradise will give you a | | | | hint on the location of a few more treasures (there treasures are the ones | | | | who give better prizes). Beware that some Chocobo's give you 2 locations | | | | (if you talk to a Chocobo with the X BUTTON he will give you a location but | | | | if you talk to him with the SQUARE BUTTON he might give you another hint. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. CHOCO'S ABILITIES .:. 08/003 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Choco can gain various new abilities every time he visits the Chocobo's | | | | Dream World.

Just bring your Chocobo and he | | | | will do the rest. Is he a great pet or what!? Well, now it's time to give a | | | | use for all those Chocographs you've been digging up for the past hours. | | | | Each one of them shows an image of the location you need to find and a bit | | | | of an info to help your search. To allocate a Chocograph on the searching | | | | mode just open the Chocograph menu and choose the Chocograph you want to | | | | search for. Choco cannot find the treasure unless he has the Chocograph, | | | | even if you already know it's location. Anyway, the menu also shows your | | | | current abilities and the abilities you need to catch the treasure, which | | | | will also give you a hint on the location of the Chocograph (If a Chocograph | | | | need the Ability to cross mountains it won't be hidden in the ocean right!? | | | | It will probably be in a mountain or in a place you can only reach if you | | | | cross a mountain).

PARADISE TREASURES .:. 08/005 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | All of the Paradise Treasures require that you use a Dead Pepper on Choco. | | | | You can get a lot of Dead Peppers if you talk to the Chocobo sitting next to | | | | the Fat Chocobo but in the beginning you need to dig them like every other | | | | Chocobo in the world at the Chocobo's Forest/Lagoon/Air Garden. Now, Dead | | | | Peppers enhance certain abilities in Choco. To use it open the Chocobo Menu | | | | and choose to feed him with a Dead Pepper... | | | | | | | | #1- If Choco is in the ground when you use it he will dig frenetically. If | | | | you're near a crack, it will open and you can get treasures or | | | | entrances to special places. | | | | #2- If Choco is at the sea (or at Quan's Dwelling) he will dive furiously | | | | and if there's any treasures underwater he will get them. | | | | #3- If the Chocobo is flying he will give a bit flap and fly high in the | | | | sky. This ability is only needed to reach the Air Garden. | | | | | | | | Here are all the location of the treasures. There are a total of 8 treasures | | | | To be found, and the locations are revealed to you by many Chocobo's at the | | | | Paradise and by the Fat Chocobo itself...

BEACH QUEST .:. 08/006 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | And there's a final quest to do with Choco. Visit all the beaches and shores | | | | in the world to gain a cool power (only do it once you've found ALL the | | | | treasures with Choco, and I really mean ALL of them). When you're at a | | | | beach, press the CIRCLE BUTTON and you will hear a sound. Do this in every | | | | single beach of the world. You don't need to do it with Choco, you can use | | | | the Invincible to visit every beach and although it seems hard it's quite | | | | easy, the problem is if you miss a small shore it will be hard to find out | | | | which one you missed. | | | | | | | | Anyway, when you do this you will gain a healing power. Press the CIRCLE | | | | BUTTON on any beach and you will be automatically healed. It doesn't work on | | | | any corner of the globe, only in beaches and shores. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | |__________________________________________________________________________________| __________________________________________________________________________________ | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | CHAPTER IX - THE GAMES | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | MAJOR THANKS TO... | | | | **************************************************************************** | | | | KuteKatt for the info on the King of Jump Ropes and Athlete Queen and | | | | BloWmYmInD for the Brothers Mini-Game...

The 1st one is the jump rope. | | | | To play talk to the girls playing the game when you gain control of Vivi in | | | | the beginning of the game. | | | | | | | | Jump Rope is hard at the beginning because of the camera view. After | | | | Alexandria is destroyed the girls will appear again, this time in the chapel | | | | of Alexandria (where you find Kupo). While playing the game press the | | | | X BUTTON when you see the (!). This will make Vivi jump. At the beginning | | | | it's easy, but at the 20th jump the speed will rise and it will keep on | | | | rising... Depending on the number of jumps you de you can get... | | | | | | | | You jumped...

RUN HIPPAUL, RUN .:. 09/003 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | The other game in Alexandria is the racing game. When you return to | | | | Alexandria and you're controlling Vivi talk to Hippaul's mother (She's on | | | | one of the streets) and you can choose to race against Hippaul. | | | | | | | | By playing with Hippaul you can also get various items. Talk to Hippaul's | | | | mother in the streets of Alexandria (Disc 3). Once the game begins, quickly | | | | press the CIRCLE and SQUARE BUTTONS alternately (I advice you to change the | | | | button configuration because the normal configuration makes it hard to pull | | | | it off). At start Hippaul will be slow... really slow, but he will raise his | | | | level has he runs until he reaches a point when he's unbeatable. | | | | His mom will give you prizes every time he reaches a certain level... | | | | | | | | He's at...

If you win, you'll receive all the money you betted and some more | | | | for winning the bet. After that the brothers will ask you to quit or to | | | | keep on playing... if you do, the bets will rise and also the profits. | | | | I find it useless... the lower levels give to little Gil and the harder | | | | levels are too hard so you're most likely to loose money instead of winning. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | |__________________________________________________________________________________| __________________________________________________________________________________ | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | CHAPTER X - WRESTLING TIME | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | HARIGATO... | | | | **************************************************************************** | | | | Jeff (JeffCD2@aol.com) for providing me info on all the stats of Ozma, | | | | it's attacks and items and to Kalle Hougaard (kallehougaard@yahoo.com) for | | | | giving me an alternative strategy for Eiko. | | | | George Buttner (Agent0042@mail2Fanatic.com) for his strategy on how to beat | | | | the Grand Dragons and some corrections in terms or grammar... | | | | **************************************************************************** | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:.

Be careful of his attacks, they can | | | | disable your entire party in a flash. Keep on attacking with your most | | | | powerful techniques and magical attacks. Before battling equip your | | | | characters with support abilities that disable status changes. Also put all | | | | characters in the back row otherwise Hade's Cleave will kill you just like | | | | that... Keep on healing and attacking and kick Hades's ass!!! | | | | | | | | After an exhausting fight, Hades will consider you very strong and offers | | | | his services as a master synthesis.

THE BOOK MONSTER .:. 10/002 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | The Tantarian is one cool and very hard to beat monster. He's at | | | | Alexandria's Castle Library inside a book and you can fight him just before | | | | meeting with Garnet and Eiko at the top of the Castle. Be afraid, be very | | | | afraid... he's way hard!!! | | | | | | | | Tantarian | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Level 41 | | | | Type Demon | | | | HP 12600 | | | | MP 1500 | | | | AP 30 | | | | EXP 22000 | | | | | | | | Attacks Paper Storm, Doom, Edge, Poison | | | | Items Running Shoes | | | | | | | | The first thing you need to know is that you can't damage him while the book | | | | is closed so don't waste your MP. To open the book you will have to attack | | | | him physically. If the damage is 100 HP he will open on Page 100. You'll | | | | just have to figure out the combination needed to make him open. Once that | | | | happens DO NOT ATTACK HIM PHYSICALLY otherwise he will close again. Just | | | | attack him with magic. Be aware of it's Poison attack that can be really | | | | annoying and also his Doom attack. If the book closes just repeat the attack | | | | sequence to open him again. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF THOSE GRAND DRAGONS .:. 10/003 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | At Palmnell Island (where the Chocobo's Lagoon is located) you can find one | | | | of the most untamed beasts in the world. The very powerful Grand Dragon. | | | | Now, these green guys can be though, but not if you know the way. | | | | | | | | First of all you will want to do the BEACH QUEST. Visit all the beaches and | | | | shores in the world to gain a cool power (only do it once you've found ALL | | | | the treasures with Choco, and I really mean ALL of them). When you're at a | | | | beach, press the CIRCLE BUTTON and you will hear a sound. Do this in every | | | | single beach of the world. You don't need to do it with Choco, you can use | | | | the Invincible to visit every beach and although it seems hard it's quite | | | | easy, the problem is if you miss a small shore it will be hard to find out | | | | which one you missed. Anyway, when you do this you will gain a healing | | | | power. Press the CIRCLE BUTTON on any beach and you will be automatically | | | | healed. It doesn't work on any corner of the globe, only in beaches and | | | | shores. | | | | | | | | This power will be way helpful because it will get rid of any status effects | | | | and will completely fill your HP and MP. This is quite nice so you don't | | | | need to keep on using Tents and things like that. Now, for equipments and | | | | support abilities... ALL characters need Auto-Haste, Auto-Reflect, Antibody, | | | | Level Up and Ability Up if you still need to learn some abilities. The | | | | Auto-Haste will speed up the battle as Auto-Reflect will protect you from | | | | the Dragon's Thungadas, while the Antibody will prevent you from being | | | | poisoned by his Poison Claw or his Venom Breath, the Level Up will make | | | | you grow faster (you will earn +50% of EXP) and the Ability Up will make | | | | you learn abilities faster (you will receive x2 AP). As for equipments, the | | | | characters need a item that either absorbs or reduces by 100% the Shadow | | | | damage (but only if you pretend to use Doomsday). Just equip the most | | | | powerful weapons and the best equipments in your list and you'll be ready to | | | | party. | | | | | | | | Just keep on using Steiner's Shock, Vivi's Blizzaga works a lot well (don't | | | | forget to use the Reflect to power up your magics). Use Zidane's Thievery or | | | | just steel a lot to power up the Thievery. Don't be afraid to use you most | | | | powerful (and expensive) abilities as you can quickly recover the AP lost | | | | by pressing CIRCLE on the world map. Easy isn't it!? | | | | Just keep on levelling up until you are powerful enough to mach the Yans. If | | | | you prefer, you can go to Memoria and fight there, but you can't use the | | | | Beach Power in there... | | | | | | | | Of course there is another way... so simple that I even forgot it, thanks to | | | | George Buttner... all you gotta do is use Quina's Lv.5 Death... Simple huh!? | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF THOSE YANS .:. 10/004 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | You think that Ozma is hard!? Well, you haven't seen these babies working. A | | | | single Yan can wipe out your entire party before you can even say: "All | | | | right boys, let's kick this tiny and extremely cute Yan's ass!!!" so be | | | | extremely careful with these guys. | | | | | | | | Now, the preparations, have with you as many Vaccines as you can get and | | | | also Tents. You characters have to be at least at Lv. 70 in order to do a | | | | decent battle. You absolutely need to equip an item that either absorbs or | | | | reduces by 100% the Shadow damage as you will be using Doomsday a lot. Equip | | | | the most powerful weapons and armours. Use these Support Abilities: | | | | Auto-Life, in case your character dies, Auto-Regen, to keep on healing, | | | | Alert because the Yans seem to keep on catching you by surprise (only need | | | | to equip it on one of the characters), Auto-Haste, or you will have no match | | | | for their speed and Level Up to grow faster. Now, the Yan's attacks have no | | | | way to be stopped, but you can put the odds in your side, so equip items | | | | that raise your Magic Evade and Magic Defence. The Yans have 4 attacks | | | | divided in 2 groups. The normal attacks which include Comet (Non-Elemental | | | | damage) and Virus Powder (that can induce Virus). The other group is the | | | | counter attacks. If an Yan is attacked in ANY WAY he will counter with | | | | either Float or the very annoying Snort that will put a character | | | | permanently off the current battle (making it impossible for that character | | | | to gain EXP and AP). Because of this you need to do as less attacks as you | | | | can and he maximum damage possible. | | | | | | | | I recommend Zidane's Thievery, Freya's Dragon's Crest, Dagger's Atomos, | | | | Vivi's Doomsday or Steiner's Shock/Climhazzard at 9999 HP of damage. To know | | | | how to put these abilities doing 9999 HP of damage just check out the info | | | | on these abilities and on Dagger's Eidolons (Steiner's Shock and Vivi's | | | | Doomsday have no secret as far as I know it). Here's what I would do if... | | | | | | | | I had 1 Yan to fight... | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | 1- Yan attack | | | | 2- Steiner casts Shock (9999 HP of damage) | | | | 3- Zidane, Freya, Dagger or Vivi attack with a 9999 HP Damage Ability | | | | 4- Yan dies and you collect the prize | | | | | | | | (Use a Vaccine, Phoenix Down, or a curative magic every time you need!!!) | | | | | | | | I had 2 Yans to fight... | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | 1- Yans attack | | | | 2- Dagger summons Atomos (9999 HP of damage) | | | | 3- Steiner uses Shock to kill a Yan | | | | 4- Yans might attack again | | | | 5- Zidane casts Thievery to kill the other Yan | | | | 6- Yan dies and you collect the prize | | | | | | | | (Use a Vaccine, Phoenix Down, or a curative magic every time you need!!!) | | | | | | | | I had 3 Yans to fight... | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | 1- Yans attack | | | | 2- Dagger summons Atomos (9999 HP of damage) | | | | 3- Steiner uses Shock to kill a Yan | | | | 4- Yans might attack again | | | | 5- Zidane casts Thievery to kill the other Yan | | | | 6- Vivi or Freya kill the remaining Yan | | | | 7- Yan dies and you collect the prize | | | | | | | | (Use a Vaccine, Phoenix Down, or a curative magic every time you need!!!) | | | | | | | | I think that covers it all. Seems easy doesn't it!? Well... it's not!! The | | | | Yans are by far the toughest monsters around. They can wipeout your race in | | | | a flash. Do not be fooled by their cute face... they're deadly!!! | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. REQUEST FOR AN AUDIENCE WITH OZMA .:. 10/005 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | For those who don't know, Ozma is the toughest and most powerful enemy in | | | | the whole game. You can find him in Chocobo's Air Garden when you examine a | | | | rock that looks a bit strange. If you proceed on examining the rock Ozma | | | | will fight you. | | | | | | | | Ozma | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Level 99 of course | | | | Type Flying | | | | HP 55565 | | | | MP 9999 (Way much isn't it!?) | | | | AP 100 | | | | EXP 55565 | | | | | | | | Attacks Mini, Berserk, Curaga, Flare Star, Doomsday, Meteor, Flare, | | | | Death, Lv.4 Holy, Lv.5 Death, Curse, MP Absorb | | | | | | | | ITEMS Strategy guide (a proof that you kicked Ozma's ass) | | | | Pumice (To summon Arc) | | | | Ozma Card (To add it to your collection) | | | | Dark Matter (only sometimes) | | | | | | | | Many people told me Ozma is very hard. I personally had more troubles to | | | | defeat Kuja than this guy. I had Vivi, Zidane, Steiner and Eiko in my party | | | | and I managed to beat him just like that. The funny thing is I wasn't even | | | | willing to beat Ozma, I was just showing a friend how to reach Ozma and I | | | | was able to beat him... My characters had every ability learned but none of | | | | them reached Trance in the middle of the combat. It is important that every | | | | character has an item that protects or absorbs Shadow Damage because of the | | | | Doomsday attack, that you have Auto-Reflect on all the party and that every | | | | one is on the back row... | | | | Here are more details on my characters when I won Ozma... The Support | | | | Abilities are in fact very badly distributed, so you can arrange them in | | | | another way because I wasn't counting on beating Ozma... | | | | Also, some people said that Doomsday cures Ozma, I don't know how but when | | | | he did Doomsday it damaged him, so I kept on using Doomsday and damaged him | | | | a lot... Maybe I should also refer that I had completed the Spirits of Gaia | | | | side-quest which did make him easier... | | | | | | | | Vivi | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Level 62 | | | | HP 3247 | | | | MP 303 | | | | Equipment Mace of Zeus, Coronet, Egoist's Armlet, | | | | Robe of Lords, Protect Ring | | | | Abilities Auto-Reflect, Auto-Haste, Return Magic, Auto-Potion, | | | | Clear-Headed | | | | Attacks Just attack with Doomsday every turn | | | | | | | | | | | | Zidane | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Level 64 | | | | HP 4126 | | | | MP 257 | | | | Equipment Ultima Weapon, Thief Hat, Egoist's Armlet, | | | | Brave Suit, Protect Ring | | | | Abilities Auto-Reflect, Auto-Haste, Long Reach, Bright Eyes, | | | | Clear Headed | | | | Attacks Just attack with Thievery every turn (the ability has to do at | | | | least 7300 HP of damage) | | | | | | | | | | | | Steiner | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Level 63 | | | | HP 5161 | | | | MP 232 | | | | Equipment Ragnarok, Grand Helm, Defense Gloves, | | | | Tin Armour, Pumice Piece | | | | Abilities Auto-Reflect, Auto-Haste, HP+20%, Accuracy+, | | | | Alert, Bright Eyes, Clear Headed | | | | Attacks Keep on using Shock (it has to do 9999 HP of damage) | | | | | | | | | | | | Eiko | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Level 62 | | | | HP 3247 | | | | MP 274 | | | | Equipment Tiger Racket, Holy Mitre, Egoist's Armlet, | | | | Dark Gear, Protect Ring | | | | Abilities Auto-Reflect, Auto-Haste, Reflect Null, Guardian Mog, | | | | Loudmouth, Clear Headed | | | | Attacks Just keep on using Madeen for about 3000 HP of damage and cure | | | | when needed... or if you prefer just eqquip a White Robe and | | | | keep on using Holy. | | | | | | | | This was the party I used to beat the monster, and only took me 7 minutes. | | | | So don't bother levelling your characters up until Lv. 99 because you can | | | | beat Ozma at Lv. 63 or so and if you beat Ozma, you can beat every one... | | | | well... maybe every one except the Yans. | | | | When you beat Ozma you will receive the Strategy Guide... | | | | | | | | "You must collect cards with triangles pointing in different directions, or | | | | you can't achieve the highest rank." =Grand Master I= | | | | | | | | This key item gives you not only a hint on how to have the highest score at | | | | Tetra Master but is also the prove that you won Ozma.

DAGUERREO'S NAMES AND MEDALS .:. 11/001 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | If you have the Namingway card in your collection you can rename you | | | | characters. To do that just go on to Daguerreo and drop down to the | | | | balcony through the stares located near the Inn (they are kind of hidden). | | | | Anyway, if you talk to a man he will notice your Namingway card and since | | | | you showed him the card he will let you rename one of your characters. | | | | | | | | Also in Daguerreo you can get the S Rank Medal once you got all the 24 | | | | Chocograph treasures and the 8 Paradise treasures. Just talk to the guy near | | | | the Moogle... Alleiway Jack. He'll look at your rank and when he sees it he | | | | will runaway scared. Go back to the entrance and talk to him again. He'll | | | | tell you his real name is Gilgamesh (ah... I knew it!!! Those 4 arms didn't | | | | trick me) and that he's also a treasure hunter. After a little conversation | | | | he'll give you the medal that proves you found all the treasures. | | | | Before showing your Rank to Alleyway Jack just fight him in a card battle. | | | | He has most (except the Invincible) of the Ship Cards. So if you still don't | | | | have some of them just gain them now before he leaves. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:.

SECRETS OF THE QU'S .:. 11/003 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | All you need to know about Quina, Quale and Quan. All the 3 are related in a | | | | way. Quan was Vivi's grandfather and Quale's Master who abandoned him in the | | | | middle of his training. Quale now trains Quina but he doesn't seem to be | | | | doing such a great job... | | | | | | | | Frog hunting time!!! | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | From the beginning you can see that Quina likes frogs... a lot. And she can | | | | hunt them in kind of a mini-game. In every Qu's Marshes there is a sort of | | | | lake full of frogs, all Quina has to do is catch them to receive wonderful | | | | prizes from Quan... | | | | | | | | You got... You get... | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | 2 Frogs Potion | | | | 5 Frogs Ether | | | | 9 Frogs Silk Robe | | | | 15 Frogs Elixir | | | | 23 Frogs Silver Fork | | | | 33 Frogs Bistro Fork | | | | 45 Frogs Battle Boots | | | | 99 Frogs An exciting battle with Master Quale | | | | | | | | Quale isn't that hard to beat. All you need is a good Auto-Reflect on all | | | | the party. By doing this most of Quale's status changing attacks will be | | | | harmless. But just in case, keep some Remedies ready. | | | | All you need to watch out for is his Rolling Attack... nothing that a good | | | | Curaga can't handle. Attack, attack AND steal his Robe of Lords. He has one | | | | so don't kill him before you get it. After the battle is over you will | | | | receive finally the Gastro Fork. Quina can still continue to eat frogs but | | | | at this point it's quite useless except for powering the Frog Drop. | | | | | | | | | | | | Quan's Dwelling | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | When you enter with Vivi and Quina in Quan's Dwelling a funny scene will | | | | take place. Quina will see a LOT of food in the table and will start eating | | | | it. If you examine the clock outside... Quan's spirit appears and starts | | | | telling a story... blah, blah, blah... then Quale appears... more blah, | | | | blah, blah... and you'll receive the Running Shoes. Skip the lame stuff and | | | | get to the point which is... the treasure. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:.

Go to Eiko's | | | | kitchen with Zidane, Steiner, Dagger and Eiko and you will see Lani. Leave | | | | Madain Sari and enter again but now with Zidane, Quina, Steiner and Vivi in | | | | your party. Go again to the kitchen and this time Lani won't runaway. She's | | | | tell you something about carvings in the treasure chest in Eiko's room. The | | | | writings say somethin' about going clockwise and counter clockwise 9 times. | | | | Go to the Eidolon Wall and rotate clockwise (to the right) until you reach | | | | the door again. When you do, you'll hear a sound. Now go counter clockwise | | | | (to the left) until you hear the same sound. Repeat this 9 times and you | | | | will be healed. Now you can see writings you couldn't see before, specially | | | | one where Dagger's father writes a letter to his wife Jane and his daughter | | | | Sarah... | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:.

GAMEPLAY & RULES .:. 12/001 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Tetra Master is simple to learn but hard to master. There's some basic | | | | knowledge you will need to acquire before you go on a card fight. | | | | | | | | Every card has arrows (at least most of them) these arrows mean in which | | | | direction a card can "attack". Each card also has number and letters. | | | | For example, if a card has this sequence: | | | | | | | | ________ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |< 1M23 >| | | | | | | | | | | |________| | | | | | | | | The 1st number represents the card's attack power and the letter determines | | | | which type of attack it is. M stands for Magical Attack and P stands for | | | | Physical Attack. The 2nd number represents the physical defence while the | | | | 3rd number represents the magical defence. In the beginning of a game you | | | | will need to choose 5 cards from your list. A coin is tossed to determine | | | | who begins first. There are 3 ways of making a card your own... | | | | | | | | #1- Your arrow is pointing to the other player's card... if he doesn't have | | | | any arrow pointing back at you the card will be yours | | | | | | | | #2- If an arrow is pointing back at you when you place the card a battle | | | | will begin. If you win the card is yours | | | | | | | | #3- Combo's are also possible in Tetra Master. When you win an opponent's | | | | card all the cards it has it's arrows pointed to will also become yours | | | | (if they already weren't) | | | | | | | | In battle, a card that deals a physical attack only needs to consider | | | | the 2nd number which represents the physical defence while those who deal | | | | magical attacks only need to concern themselves about the 3rd number. | | | | If the HP of the opponent's card reaches 0 it will turn blue (which means | | | | it's yours) but you can also lose, in that case the card will become red. | | | | Multiple battles can occur. If several arrows are in position to battle you | | | | will be given the chance to choose which battle you want to begin with. | | | | | | | | After a lot of battles, cards will evolve. Either by increasing the attack | | | | or defence power or by changing the type of attack. At some point your | | | | attack type will become X which means that when you attack, the card will | | | | choose the lowest defence, either magical or physical. Defence and Attack | | | | powers can also become letters which means that they've levelled up into a | | | | higher level. | | | | | | | | In the end, the player with the most cards of his colour will win. Unless | | | | there's a draw and then no one looses any card. When you win you may choose | | | | one of the opponent's card but only those which you were able to turn blue. | | | | If you make a perfect game (turning ALL the cards blue) you can have all of | | | | the opponent's cards. | | | | | | | | Beware that cards (just like your party) will weaken if you use them | | | | constantly. Their HP will be less than normal and they may also feel more | | | | difficulties to conquer other cards. | | | | | | | | All in all, you can collect 100 different cards, and that's the max. number | | | | of cards you can carry, if you receive more cards you will need to discard | | | | some. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. CARDS LOCATIONS .:. 12/002 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Around the world there are cards to be found. Some are easy to get, other | | | | will make you live a nightmare. To help you out here's a little list of | | | | locations. It's incomplete since I don't know where to get ALL the cards, so | | | | these are the ones I remember where to get. | | | | All the card locations are from CD4 after Terra is destroyed to make the | | | | life of those who went on to get Excalibur II and missed the cards easier. | | | | | | | | Very important cards (***) | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | #088 - Viltgance (***) Alleyway Jack (Right Hall - Daguerreo) | | | | If you already showned your S-Rank to Alleyway Jack at Daguerreo he won't | | | | be there anymore so the only way to get this card now is to trade 1800 | | | | Chocobo's Points by talking to Mene at Chocobo's Forest/Lagoon/Air Garden. | | | | | | | | #090 - Fat Chocobo (***) Fat Chocobo (Chocobo's Paradise) | | | | You will only get this card when you have sucessfully discovered all the 32 | | | | Chocobo's treasures (Chocographs + Paradise Treasures). After having all of | | | | them just talk to Fat Chocobo and he will give you the card. | | | | | | | | #095 Lindblum (***) Found in Lindblum (Shopping Area - Lindblum) | | | | This card his located near Card Freak Gon's house after Lindblum is | | | | destroyed by Brahne. To the left of Gon's house you will find the card. | | | | | | | | #098 - Namingway (***) Mario (Card Tournament - Treno) | | | | If you do not win the Namingway Card at the tournament you will have | | | | another chance to get it. After getting the Gulug Stone and returning to | | | | the Desert Palace Zidane will find the card near the teleporter (before | | | | meeting Kuja). If you fail to find it you won't get another chance of | | | | having this card and your collection will be incomplete... FOREVER... Oh... | | | | wait... there's another... as Tom Margett says... "In Daguerreo, if you go | | | | down that little elevator bit on the top floor (where you give that old man | | | | the magical fingertip from the auction), on the left hand side if you go | | | | along the bookcase, a (!) should appear and voila, there you have the third | | | | and final Namingway card." | | | | | | | | | | | | Card Number & Name Where to get it | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | #001 Goblin Card seller (outside Card Stadium - Treno) | | | | #002 Fang Card seller (outside Card Stadium - Treno) | | | | #003 Skeleton Card seller (outside Card Stadium - Treno) | | | | #004 Flan Card Seller (outside Card Stadium - Treno) | | | | #005 Zaghnol Card Feak Gon (Residence - Lindblum) | | | | #006 Lizard Man Card Feak Gon (Residence - Lindblum) | | | | #007 Zombie Self-Proclaimed Artist Michael (Studio - Lindblum) | | | | #008 Bomb Self-Proclaimed Artist Michael (Studio - Lindblum) | | | | #009 Ironite Self-Proclaimed Artist Michael (Studio - Lindblum) | | | | #010 Sahagin Self-Proclaimed Artist Michael (Studio - Lindblum) | | | | #011 Yeti Red Chocobo near Fat Chocobo(Chocobo's Paradise) | | | | #012 Mimic Red Chocobo near Fat Chocobo(Chocobo's Paradise) | | | | #013 Wyerd Red Chocobo near Fat Chocobo(Chocobo's Paradise) | | | | #014 Mandragora Red Chocobo near Fat Chocobo(Chocobo's Paradise) | | | | #015 Crawler Weimar, Pluto Knight VII (Steepel - Alexandria) | | | | #016 Sand Scorpion Weimar, Pluto Knight VII (Steepel - Alexandria) | | | | #017 Nymph Aschley (Alley - Alexandria) | | | | #018 Sand Golem Aschley (Alley - Alexandria) | | | | #019 Zuu Aschley (Alley - Alexandria) | | | | #020 Dragonfly Immigrant from Lindblum (Main Street - Alexandria) | | | | #021 Carrion Worm Immigrant from Lindblum (Main Street - Alexandria) | | | | #022 Cerberus Immigrant from Lindblum (Main Street - Alexandria) | | | | #023 Antlion Young Lady (Main Street - Lindblum) | | | | #024 Cactuar Young Lady (Main Street - Lindblum) | | | | #025 Gimme Cat Indust.

NEED MONEY, AND FAST .:. 13/001 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Short on money? Want a loan? Forget all of that, because all you need is to | | | | find the Chocobo's Paradise Treasure # 4, located in Seatence Field, North | | | | of the Outer Continent. You will find 8 Straw Hat, 8 Pearl Armlet, 7 Aloha | | | | T-Shirt and 8 Sandals. When you sell them you will raise a whole lot of | | | | money. The other option is to use Quina's Millionaire Ability and start | | | | fighting or complete the various side-quests that many times award large | | | | amounts of Gil. | | | | | | | | Saynt on the other way has a different strategy to give you some Gil... | | | | "I went and looked at your easy money trick for the game and I thought that | | | | I could tell you another means of how I got cash fast. I went out and got 99 | | | | greens for I think 30 g which comes out to 2970g and 99 phoenix downs at | | | | 150g which comes out to be 14850g. then I took these items to Hades and | | | | synthesized 99 pinions which costed 29700g. despite the 47520g loss, each | | | | pinion sells for 1000g each which comes out to give you 99000g, giving you a | | | | 51480g profit from what you had before. Also going to look for Hades which | | | | takes time gives you a few thousand for each enemy so it's well worth it. | | | | The problem is that it's way too late in the game and you might not have any | | | | real purpose for the money besides medicinal items and synthesized ethers | | | | but it is an easy way to get money if you feel like it. Hell, in like a day | | | | I had millions of gil to waste on NOTHING because I already have a s*** load | | | | of stuff. but hey, this is my way and despite the fact there may be easier | | | | ways, i like doing it this way. try it." | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:.

Nothing easier... all you gotta do is learn the Ability Up | | | | skill and your characters will learn new abilities in a flash. Now, all you | | | | have do is find a monster who gives away some good amount of AP. The other | | | | way is to complete the Spirits of Gaia side-quest so you receive a lot of | | | | AP. In fact you will have received about 240 AP when you complete it. If you | | | | use 2 items from which you can extract the same ability, the AP to learn | | | | that skill will be chopped in half making it easier to learn it. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. WHERE CAN I FIND SOME CHEAT EXP? .:. 13/003 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | Need some levelling up? Are bosses to hard for you? What you need is a good | | | | dose of EXP with the Yans. In Vile Island to the South of Iifa Tree lives | | | | a terrifying monster that the villagers call Yan. Deep in the forest, these | | | | untamed beasts can match the toughest knight. If you have Level Up equipped | | | | you can get to Lv. 99 in a few hours. But are you still too weak to fight | | | | these monsters? Then go to Palmnell Island to the South of Daguerreo and | | | | fight the powerful Grand Dragon for some EXP. Or if you prefer, head down | | | | to Memoria and fight every monster you can find... | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | |__________________________________________________________________________________| __________________________________________________________________________________ | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | CHAPTER XIV - RUMOURS | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | HALELUIAH TO... | | | | **************************************************************************** | | | | Elena (drugmaniac@in.gr) for every single rumour stated in this section. | | | | Common people, she deserves a big hand... | | | | **************************************************************************** | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. THE FILTHY LIES .:. 14/001 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | As for now all the rumours presented here are considered false. Some of the | | | | rumours are in such a way stupid that I can't imagine anyone believing them | | | | but they make me laugh so I included them. If you have any given proof of | | | | the real existence of such a cheat please be sure to inform me. | | | | First I would like to thank Elena to whom I owe all this section... I don't | | | | know where she got the info from but it seems it was from a web forum of | | | | some kind where idiotic people share even more idiotic ideas and rumours on | | | | FF9. Most of the messages were written in a very poor (just not to say | | | | horrible) english and about 99% of the rumours are either too stupid to even | | | | try to do it or simply impossible to complete... How about talking to | | | | everyone in Alexandria 363645735483254 times??? Of even better... sell all | | | | your gear and items, toss off your cards so you can get the all mighty | | | | Mystic Enchant for Steiner. Maybe you want to beat the game 100 times to get | | | | Kuja in your party. Some of these rumours are amazing because no sane person | | | | would be willing to do them... | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #1 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Get the Excalibur III | | | | Comment: Man... where do they take these ideas from... | | | | Go to the Qu's Marsh with the Excalibur II and I and talk to that | | | | know-it-all moogle. He will ask you the question: "what is I+II?" You answer | | | | III and you'll get the Excalibur III. If you use it's ability, you will | | | | automatically beat the game and see another ultra secret ending. Takes 99 | | | | Magic stones to equip. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #2 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Excalibur III again | | | | Comment: Blah, blah, blah | | | | Go to chocobo's paradise after beating ozma (you must get every chocobo | | | | treasure) then talk 574 times to the Fat Chocobo and challenge him. You must | | | | have 100 Chocobo Cards. After that talk to the small chocobo on the right | | | | and he will give you the Excalibur III and Infinite I that makes you have | | | | an infinite number of a certain item. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #3 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Spend weeks training Zidane to get everything in the game | | | | Comment: Who's willing to spend weeks training Zidane??? | | | | If you keep training in the Evil forest right after the ship crashes, (but | | | | before you fight the prison cage) and get Zidane up to Lv. 70 (this takes | | | | weeks but it's worth it!) when everyone gets out of the ice cavern Zidane | | | | will say "Dagger, there's something in your hair." And then everyone will | | | | get at lv. 99, all attacks, all the strongest weapons, and 99 of every item. | | | | (If you have a turbo controller, getting up to level 70 would be much easier | | | | seeing as every enemy in the evil forest only gives you 30 or so experience | | | | points!) | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #4 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Eiko, Dagger and Beatrix naked... | | | | Comment: Some gamers out there need a girl... fast!!! | | | | To get Beatrix, Garnet and Eiko naked for the rest of the game fly the world | | | | in the Invincible north 3 times, then West 3 times and use the gold chocobo | | | | diagonally from top right 3 more times and go to Daguerro with the Hawaiian | | | | clothes on Dagger and Eiko and change their names. Change Garnet's name to | | | | Butt and Eiko's name to Naked and go to Mist Continent's Qu's Marsh, talk to | | | | Quale and he will give you a wrapped gift now go to Alexandria and speak to | | | | the woman in the boat and she will say what nice Clothes you have now go to | | | | the castle and another woman will say what nice names you have now go to | | | | Lindblum and talk to the guard near the serpents gate and he will say what | | | | nice breats you have and the screen goes black and makes a sleeoing melody | | | | and when it goes bright again Garnet Eiko and Beatrix will all be naked | | | | except in the FMV. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #5 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Necron in your party... | | | | Comment: A Moogle saying "I'm sharpening my knife!!"... No comments | | | | First, beat the game without Zidane ever dying. Buy 50 Save the Queens and | | | | 15 Robe of Lords. Make everybody Lv. 99 and then kill Zidane on purpose, but | | | | don't let an enemy hurt him. Now use everybody's MP up, and get Amarant into | | | | your party. Make him throw all your Save the Queens and go to Daguerro and | | | | sell all your Robe of Lords. Use the money you accumulate to buy as many | | | | Broadswords as you can. Call the moogle and say cancel about 20 times. The | | | | guy will start to say things like "You're starting to tick me off!!" or "I'm | | | | sharpening my knife!!" After he says one of these things, save. Then, fight | | | | Necron and only let Zidane live and he has to have full HP. Then in the | | | | final movie, you will see an extra part (wouldn't want to spoil it for you, | | | | would I?) Then, beat Ozma with everyone's best weapons equiped. Then, you | | | | will have eight party members playable at once, and Necron will join your | | | | side. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #6 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Loose Choco forever | | | | Comment: Why would I want to do this!? | | | | When you have the Gold Chocobo, fly around the world 69 times. You must do | | | | this after you have visited the Choco Paradise for the first time. After the | | | | 69th time, return to the Choco forest and Mene says that your working Choco | | | | too hard and takes him away from you. If you talk to mene after that all he | | | | will say is "*?%& OFF!!!!" | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #7 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Puck murders Blank | | | | Comment: Murder!? What a...!? | | | | In Chocobo's Air Garden fight Ozma without Dagger or Eiko. Using Zidane, | | | | Freya,Steiner and Vivi. After this return to Alexandria and speak to Puck | | | | the Ratboy who used Vivi earlier on in the game as a slave will come along, | | | | he demands Vivi to be his slave once again. Taking Zidanes advice he stands | | | | up and says get lost to the Ratboy. The Ratboy then runs off shouting | | | | "You'll pay for this Black Mage!!!". Then return to Lindblum and talk to | | | | Blank or Marcus you'll see Vivi looking up at them on ladders suddenly | | | | Ratboy comes along and pushes Vivi into the ladder Blank comes crashing down | | | | and dies. Its not an FMV but its still good to watch Zidanes and Baku's | | | | reaction is pretty funny!!! | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #8 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Steiner's Ultima Shock ability | | | | Comment: Right... sell all my equipment, toss away all my cards... | | | | Get Steiner's "Ultima Shock" Ability. First, you need the Excalibur from the | | | | auction side quest. Then, go change Steiner's name to "Pluto". Now, go to | | | | the Chocobo Forest and dig up the Ragnorok. Now, go back and rename Steiner | | | | to "Utima". Now, go to Memoria, and, if you made it in time, get Excalibur | | | | II(if you don't get the Excalibur II, you've wasted your time). Now, go back | | | | and rename Steiner again to "Shock". Now, go back to Memoria and enter the | | | | Crystal World and use the save crystal to teleport out and exit. Now, go to | | | | where the Scorpio was and get the 13th Stellazio, and bring it to the woman | | | | in Treno. Now that you have 13 Stellazio and the Hammer, you have to do | | | | something horrible: Sell ALL your un-equipped items EXCEPT The items | | | | mentioned previously. Now that you have done this, you need to get a Save | | | | the Queen from synth at Hades. After you have done this, you need to beat | | | | the Red Mage 5 consecutive (without exiting) PERFECT times at Quadmist in | | | | Daguerro. After you have done this, go to the upper floors and agree | | | | with the shopkeeper in the argument every time and get the Flare card. Now | | | | toss every one of your cards that is a monster. Now, go back to memoria, and | | | | save at the save crystal in the Crystal World. After you have done that, go | | | | up and beat Trance Kuja. Right after viewing Ultima, when the party is at | | | | the cliffs, reset the game. Now, leave Memoria using the save crystal and | | | | go to the Chocobo Forest. Buy 99 Gysahl Greens. Then, train your Chocobo | | | | 'til it's Blue. Now, leave and go to mognet if you haven't already. Now, you | | | | need to have delivered all of the letters. Now, complete the Chocobo Side | | | | quests until you get the Ultima Weapon. Now, go to the weapon shop in | | | | Alexandria and sell any leftover Gysahl Greens. Now, go to Hades. He will | | | | let you Synth the Save the Queen, Ragnorok, Excalibur, Hammer, all your | | | | cards, and Ultima Weapon (I hated doing that too) for an Angel Armlet. Equip | | | | this to Steiner, which will give him the ability slot "Mystic Enchant" which | | | | makes him immune to all status effects except venom and let's him use Ultima | | | | Shock with the Excalibur II! Ultima Shock damages all enemies for 7500-9999 | | | | damage, and, if only fighting one enemy, causes all status effects except | | | | venom! This side quest is hard to do though, I hated doing it. | | | | Hard!? How about stupid??? Who's the idiotic person who even had the idea of | | | | inventing such a bogus secret? | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #9 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Zidane's Divine Intervention | | | | Comment: Combine Zidane with summons??? Getting weirder.... | | | | Zidane's Devine Intervention! To get this cheat to work, you'll need to be | | | | able to change your character's names. First, you'll need the following | | | | party: Eiko, Zidane, Dagger, and Quina. Go change Zidane's name to "LuvsDag" | | | | and Dagger's name to "LuvsZid". Now, raise Zidane and Dagger to level 99 and | | | | make sure Eiko and Quina don't gain any levels(keep using their change | | | | command 'til they die). When they make it to level 99, get into a fight | | | | with Deathguise, and have Zidane attack Dagger until she dies. Beat | | | | Deathguise, and go to Hades. If you have the Hammer, bring it to Hades and | | | | synth the Excalibur 2 with it to get the Holy Flint, which, when equipped to | | | | Dagger, let's Zidane use Devine Intervention, which, when Garnet uses a | | | | summon, and Zidane goes before it, Zidane will combine with the summon. But | | | | it's only compatible with 3 summons: Bahumut, Arc, and Ramuh. Also, if he | | | | has any tropical equipment, he can use it with Leviathan (the funniest scene | | | | in the game.. he surfs on it's head!). | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #10 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Watch Amarant sexually violate Eiko | | | | Comment: OK... this is where I draw the line... I mean... does this even | | | | make sense to anyone? Pedofilia is not a game OK!? It's serious business... | | | | If you circle the world going West 69 times then East 666 times and you talk | | | | to regent cid he will give you a submarine and if you go underwater near the | | | | water shrine and hit triangle it will show Zidane with a ? over his head and | | | | he will look back and it will show the storage room door shaking as he opens | | | | the door, it will show Eiko bent over a crate with her dress pulled up and | | | | amarant with a guilty look on his face and cloud's spiky blonde haired head | | | | for a censor...... | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #11 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: New items to synth | | | | Comment: Anyone care to try??? | | | | Get flare star, Limiter and Doomsday, you will need to beat Hades and play | | | | the game for a time equal to one week, there will be more things ro Synth | | | | from, those are: Rusty knife (It does about 300-900 dammage and teaches | | | | Zidane Flare star ability that must be equiped to be used in Trance. You | | | | must have a peridot and a mythril dagger.), Red staff (Does about 1000-2000 | | | | fire element dammage, teaches Vivi Limiter, it is used only if Zidane is in | | | | trance and it casts a flare star on an enemy, thus getting Zidane out of | | | | trance, however it does x2 times more damage, it also teaches Vivi Doomsday, | | | | (a very nice shadow attack.) The new items are also the dead pepper (must | | | | have a potion and a Gysahl Greens), fake pumice( Needs two elixirs, absorbs | | | | holy dammage and teaches nothing), circlet, cat's claws and rune blade (rune | | | | blade needs a blood sword and a flame saber.) | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #12 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Everyone in your party becomes Zidane | | | | Comment: In what way is this important for the game??? | | | | Every one in your party becomes Zidane!!! First, (name every one Zidane, or | | | | they will just look like him but have there orignal names). Equip every one | | | | with the same accesoies (everything execpt weapon). Get into a battle at | | | | Memoria. Get every one with on HP (this is hard but it works). Have Zidane | | | | use Sacrife (the real one) and then escape. (don't heal him or the trick | | | | won't work) and then fight kuja. You have to beat him with Zidane still KO'd | | | | and then when you go to fight nercron every one will be restored. When you | | | | get into the battle..every one will be Zidane!!! (you can use the rename | | | | card.. if you dont have it you'll have to start a new game). | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #13 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Have Fratley in your party | | | | Comment: Fratley... in your party??? HaHaHaHa... | | | | Go all the way through Memoria, and the Crystal world, but don't go after | | | | Kuja. Leave the Crystal world, from the save point and return to Gaia, and | | | | acquire the Dragon's Hair lance. After that, go fight Ozma and have Freya | | | | deal the final blow (this can be difficult, so use her very often). After | | | | defeating him, pilot the Invincible to Burmecia and enter the city. In the | | | | temple with the crumbled statue, the party will find Fratley there, and a | | | | dialogue between them ensues. Fratley managed to recover most of his memory, | | | | but knows now isn't the time to try and make it up to her. He wants to be | | | | there for her from now on, and asks to join the group on their quest. In | | | | addition, he tells Freya he acquired skills during his travels he believes | | | | would benefit in their travels, and the two of them leave for a moment and | | | | sounds of them sparring can be heard in the background. Later, it cuts to | | | | the group with Freya and Fratley, and she has acquired a new technique, | | | | called Dragon Spirit. Both Freya and Fratley can use this in battle. It's a | | | | multi-hit combo attack that strikes all enemies around 10-12 times, dealing | | | | 8500-9999 each time. Fratley comes with a unique lance called Ergheiz that | | | | only he can equip. It has an attack power of 130. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #14 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Have Cloud in your party to fight Necron | | | | Comment: Right... Cloud... | | | | Battle Ozma with everyone's weakest weapons and after defeating it, go to | | | | fight Kuja and Cloud from FF7 will join you to fight Necron. The easiest way | | | | to beat Ozma is by having Amarant use his throw comman, use Quina's frog | | | | drop, and Eiko's healing abilities. Also, equip everyone with status | | | | protecting accesories/abilities and shadow absorbing armor. Levels past 70 | | | | will give you a chance. (Steiner's Shock doesn't cause a lot of damage with | | | | a weak weapon.) | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #15 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Naked Dagger | | | | Comment: Yeah... you wish... | | | | How: First fly round the world 102 times in the hilda garde 3 then fly round | | | | the world 2 times in the Invincible. Aftern this go to Lindblum and to the | | | | weapon shop. look at cloud's sword 500 times then go fight ozma. After you | | | | defeat him you must go to any qu's marsh an ask mogster about trance 5 | | | | times. then get into a fight with a yan. After you have defeated it cloud | | | | comes along and rips off Dagger's clothes. After that | | | | she only wears them in FMV! | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #16 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Play with Kuja instead of Freya. | | | | Comment: My god... these rumours are going into the pathetic region... | | | | How: To play as Kuja, beat the game 100 times without dying. Make sure you | | | | haven't used a chocobo anywhere besides in the Treasure Hunt. After beating | | | | the game 100 times, fight a Grand Dragon and win without getting hurt (use | | | | Holy). It is O.K to heal if you get hurt you just have to end the battle | | | | with everyone in full HP. Then fight Ozma. Start a new game and get an ocean | | | | chocobo and a dead pepper. Take it out to where the ocean chocograph is | | | | and use it. It will open up a black hole that all the water will drain into. | | | | You will see a way cool movie in which everybody in you're party runs for | | | | their lives. Then you will return to the main menu but the background is | | | | different. If you try to open the file that the black hole appeared on, if | | | | will say "dead" and then you will go back to the title screen. Start a new | | | | game and during the play, have Zidane use Medeo EVERY TIME then beat the | | | | game on this file and start yet another new file. This time, instead of | | | | Freya you will meat Kuja in that bar and he will join your party and you | | | | will fight Freya where you would normally fight Kuja. Kuja has lot of stuff | | | | to start out with. His attack options are White Magic, Black Magic, | | | | Sacred Magicand Item. His white magic moves are Cure, Cura, Dispell, | | | | Confuse. His Black Magic moves are Fire, Fira, Firaga, Flare, Meteor and | | | | Doomsday. His Sacred Magic moves are Flare Star, Red Giant, Grand Cross, | | | | Slaughterhouse, Shocker and Ultima. BE WARNED that Ultima will completly | | | | spoil the game. It does 5,000,000 damage plus it will also probably kill all | | | | of your party anyhoo it does 8,000 to all of your party members so don't say | | | | I didn't warn you! Also, when he is in Trance, you can use Summon instead of | | | | Item. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #17 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Gain a Moogmedal and see Cloud marrie Dagger as she dumps Zidane... | | | | Comment: Does this even sound plausible to you!? | | | | If you spend exactly 24 hours to reach Mognet Central with the Superslick | | | | Artimecion will ask you to deliver the letters for him while he goes to use | | | | the superslick on himself. Agree and deliver all the letters within 30 | | | | minutes, then come back. The moogles will give you the 'Mooglemedal' which | | | | allows you to see a secret ending sequence where Cloud from FF7 and Dagger | | | | get married and have kids after she has dumped Zidane. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #18 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Fly with the Hilda Garde 2 on disc 1 | | | | Comment: 363645735483254 times??? Oh... right... | | | | To fly Hilda Garde 2 on disc 1 you gotta equip everybody with their lowest | | | | possible weapons, and go to Lindblum and talk to everybody 363645735483254 | | | | times, a man will come out, and he will fight you. Only your weakest weapons | | | | will do damage. Aferwards ivestigate his knocked out body and you will find | | | | a key. Now, to to Cid's airship place, and Zidane will notice a hidden door. | | | | Use the key, and you will be transported to the Hilda Garde 2, which you can | | | | fly if you want. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #19 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Play as an Eidolon FFX style | | | | Comment: Lv. 100??? Did anyone tell you that's impossible?? | | | | If you get 99 of ever jewel, summoning item and Dagger & Eiko in Lv. 100 go | | | | fight Necron (With all Eidolons learned) than play BlackJack 10 times, | | | | Beatrix will walk in and say "Reset this game and then you can play as any | | | | Eidolon u wish!!!" Reset the game wait a minute and Beatrix and Stenier will | | | | walk in and say Select 4 eidolons. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #20 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Dagger naked again... | | | | Comment: Amm... at least it sounds plausible... | | | | Garnet naked! After brahene dies, Garnet must dress for the coronation. | | | | Before she does, Doctor Tot, Steiner and Beatrix will be there with her. As | | | | she is about to undress, tot suggests the men leave the room. As soon as tot | | | | and Steiner leave, hold right until a "!" mark appears for a split second. | | | | Press the X button and you will hear a scream, after which Steiner will rush | | | | in and shout "Princess! are you ok?" Steiner turns bright red as he sees | | | | Garnet there with cute little blur circles covering her royal bits!!! | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #21 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Get Ozma in your party... | | | | Comment: Who whant's a big ball in your party??? | | | | Don't beat him right away ! You have to beat the game, then after the | | | | credits play blackjack. win 500 times and Alleyway Jack will come. He | | | | challenges you to a fight. If you beat him you can save after you beat | | | | Necron!!!! Then take your gold chocobo to the Air Garden and inspect the | | | | grave. Then Ozma will come and say '' W-Wh-What!!! You beat Necron?!?!?! | | | | Well, there's no turning back now.'' Beat him then Ozma will take Vivi's | | | | place in your party. Just think, now you can have a big ball who knows | | | | doomsday and curse!!!!! | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #22 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Play as Moogles as Zidane and Vivi dies | | | | Comment: You need to play the game on Playstation 3??? Yeah... sure... | | | | 1st you must deliver all the Mognet letters including the ones from the | | | | invisible Mogs and you must find every item in Chocobo's different areas | | | | (after digging long enough Mene will say ''I think this area has been dug | | | | clean. It's time to move on.'') You have to make sure you jumproped 999 | | | | times on your 1st try and that you race Hippaul all the way to level 100 | | | | without ever losing. After all that the Moogles will come around you and | | | | all your party members will have an uprising against Zidane for not letting | | | | them share the limelight. Then Garnet and Eiko team up to cast the super | | | | summon spell ''Kuja'' and a very feminine man wearing curtains and a thong | | | | will run up to Vivi and teach him ''Meteo.'' Sadly after casting Meteo and | | | | frying Zidane to a crisp Vivi dies from the power exerted and the game is | | | | over because no one can survive without Vivi. If you wait 8 hours without | | | | touching a button the moogles will run on the screen and tell you that you | | | | can now restart the game and play all the way through as moogles. Oh, did I | | | | mention you had to play it on Playstation 3 to get this to work? | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #23 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Grow back Garnet's hair | | | | Comment: Interessting... | | | | If you Name Zidane 100% and Vivi 99% and every other character a number | | | | under that, play for 100 hours, get 99 save the queen swords, without | | | | getting Grand Lethal, Garnet's hair will grow back. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #24 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Amm...

Oh... right... | | | | You need the Hammer, the Ultima Weapon, Ultima Sword, and 250,000 Gil. Go to | | | | Lindblum and talk to the Synthesist. He gives you a letter and sends you to | | | | he synthesist in Daguerreo. You now have a new option called ''Synnet''. Go | | | | to Alexandria, then Lindblum, then Alexandria, Daguerreo, Daguerreo again, | | | | Hades, Daguerreo 3 more times, and the Secret Synthesist in Madian Sari (who | | | | appears if you buy exactly 78 of every item Morrison sells) in that order. | | | | You can forge the three items (Hammer, Ultima Weapon, and Ultima Sword) for | | | | 250,000 Gil and get the Ultima Assault Stone. Anyone can equip this and they | | | | learn Ultima from it. It costs 99 MP and takes 400 AP to learn. But the UAS | | | | increases all stats to 99. Now you can also see the Zidane and Dagger | | | | ''special'' ending. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #26 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: I can't even discribe it... | | | | Comment: Well... it would be nice... if it made any sense at all... | | | | There is a tiny small little ''!'' sign in brahne's grave. to get there, you | | | | must have 99 of everything in your inventory, plus the excalibur2. (drop | | | | those items which you don't have 99 of) Then go to Alexandria. once there, | | | | go the harbor and Beatrix will ask if you found her sword. Well, of course | | | | you didn't! If Steiner is in your party, he'll tell her about the | | | | excalibur 2 and offer it to her. if you say ''it's a piece of c**p anyway,'' | | | | then you she will fall in love with magus (extra comment: Who is Magus | | | | anyway?

Of FF8???... am... right...) | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #28 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Give Steiner his screwdriver | | | | Comment: Of all the weapons you could have made up... | | | | You can find this weapon called a Screwdriver for Steiner somewhere in the | | | | world map. It teaches Steiner this ability called ''Steiner Screwdriver''. | | | | He picks the enemy up like a suplex, and then drops the enemy on its head. | | | | It does around 9999 damage and KO's the enemy instantly. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #29 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: King Arthur comes with his knights to help you out | | | | Comment: I like this one... it's funny... | | | | If you win against Ozma with only the hawaian accesories equiped and the | | | | weakest weapons Arthur will appear an challenge you.

The appearance of which | | | | knight depicts the attack. And if you're lucky everyone might appear | | | | simulataneously to cause 465,008,934 damage. | | | | | | | | Filthy lie #30 | | | | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | | | | Rumour: Get Mikoto in your party | | | | Comment: Just another stupid rumour | | | | When you first get the Blue Narciss, you must complete fully the Chocobo | | | | side-quest, including all of the dead pepper treasure locations (apart from | | | | the shimmering island one). (extra-comment: Did anyone tell you that it's | | | | impossible to do this? no one? really?) You must also get ALL 8 of your | | | | characters the Hawaiian gear and equip it. Equip the following weapons to | | | | the people in your party (You can't have Vivi, as he has nothing Mythril): | | | | | | | | Zidane Mythril dagger | | | | Dagger Mythril rod | | | | Eiko Mythril racket | | | | Seiner Mythril sword | | | | Freya Myhtril spear | | | | Quina Mythril fork | | | | Amarant Mythril claws | | | | | | | | Then get the four which are in you paty to Lv. 100. Now fight OZMA (with the | | | | same stuff equipped and not using Vivi. If you defeat it, it will say : "I | | | | will open the Mythrill tunnel" Go to the chocobo lagoon, and you will notice | | | | that a passage is now open. Go into a room, in which the walls are made of | | | | mythril. There is a treasusre chest which contains a "Mythril ????". Keep | | | | it, and when later when you see Mikoto in the lab in Bran Bal, she will say | | | | "I can use that weapon". She will join your party and become a permanent | | | | member (like Zidane). Her weapon is a long sword (like Sephiroth's). Her | | | | best move is a trance move called 'Genome Charge', where 4 genomes appear | | | | and do 9999 damage each. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | |__________________________________________________________________________________| __________________________________________________________________________________ | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | ENDING STATEMENTS | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | HOW CAN I EVER THANK... | | | | **************************************************************************** | | | | Zeb Purdin (zpurdindude@hotmail.com) for telling me how old in fact | | | | Garland is. | | | | **************************************************************************** | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS .:. 15/001 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | #1- Why did Brahne invaded Burmecia if they didn't have any jewel? | | | | So that Lindblum would leave the border with Alexandria unguarded, making it | | | | easier to attack them. Another possibility is... a long time ago there only | | | | existed one nation - Burmecia. When the nation was divided some Burmecians | | | | headed to the tree and created Creyra taking with them the Jewel. It is | | | | possible that Brahne didn't know who had the Jewel and because of that she | | | | attacked Burmecia first. | | | | | | | | #2- Why does Brahne want the 4 Jewels? | | | | The 4 Jewels hold a terrifying power, the summoner's tribe knew of it and | | | | never summoned Alexander. Yet Garland tried to get a hold of the Eidolon's | | | | power. While trying to corrupt Alexander a catastrophe happened that led | | | | to the destruction of the original summoner's village - Alexandria. | | | | | | | | #3- Are Dagger and Eiko relatives? | | | | It is quite possible, yet nothing in the game refers that. | | | | | | | | #4- How did Queen Hilda escaped with Hilda Garde all by herself? Did she | | | | know how to ride that thing? | | | | Seems so... Although she probably escaped with some loyal soldiers that | | | | could ride the ship. Kuja later caught her since he wanted to use the ship | | | | for his evil purposes. | | | | | | | | #5- Why did Kuja needed Brahne? Couldn't he rule the world by himself? | | | | In order to reach the Crystal Kuja needs to disrupt this consumption being | | | | made by Terra. That is the key to reach Memoria. In order to interrupt | | | | the process Kuja needs to beat Garland, and he believes the only way to do | | | | it is by gaining the power of the Eidolons and so Kuja uses Brahne to gain | | | | that power so he can cause Alexander to appear, the only Eidolon powerful | | | | enough to match Garland. Although unable to get this power Kuja discovers | | | | that if he enters in Trance he can beat Garland himself. | | | | | | | | #6- What was the Mist needed for? | | | | For ages Mist infested the Mist Continent, it was a lair for monsters and | | | | evil creatures. It would also invade one's mind raising his fighting spirit. | | | | Ultimately, the Mist was used by Kuja to create Black Mages. | | | | | | | | #7- What are truly Kuja's intentions? | | | | Just as Brahne, Kuja was also a pawn... being used by an even darkest mind. | | | | Kuja was created by Garland to be sort of a soldier. Kuja would only live | | | | until an even more powerful Genome could age and reclaim his place (for | | | | those who haven't been paying attention, that Genome is actually Zidane). | | | | Kuja didn't believe Garland and because of that he took Zidane and dropped | | | | him in Gaia hoping he would die. Now Kuja is trying to get a hold of an | | | | Eidolon's power so he can defeat Garland and rule the world. Kuja is a | | | | simple pawn used by Necron to reach the Crystal - although Necron doesn't | | | | control Kuja he knows of his purposes and uses Kuja's intentions for his own | | | | evil plot. | | | | | | | | #8- How come Alexander was never summoned before? | | | | Alexander had been summoned previously. When Garland tried to get a hold of | | | | the Eidolon's power Holy Judgement caused a mass destruction which lead to | | | | the destruction of the original summoner's village - Alexandria. Later | | | | Garland used the Invincible to destroy the new village, turning slowly | | | | Eidolons into stories, stories into legends, legends into myths. Garland's | | | | true purpose was to stop the people of Gaia from using that power since he | | | | couldn't use it. He wanted to be sure no one could defeat him. | | | | | | | | #9- Why couldn't he use the Eidolon's power? | | | | Garland's only purpose was to get an Eidolon that could help him to | | | | accelerate the process of absorption by Terra. Alexander was the only | | | | Eidolon powerful enough at the time (seems that at this time few Eidolons | | | | had been discovered). You have to remember that Eidolons are born from the | | | | legends and so at that point few legends had been given birth to Eidolons. | | | | and so Garland tried to have Alexander's power but he failed. So he decided | | | | to prevent anyone from getting that power. | | | | | | | | #10- Why did he killed Alexander when Holy Judgement was casted? | | | | First of all to prevent Kuja to get a hold of the Eidolon's power but also | | | | because he knew that Alexander couldn't be controlled. | | | | | | | | #11- What caused the decline of Terra? | | | | The events, which triggered Terra's falling, are not quite explained in the | | | | Game but from what I remember, the clime started to change (a bit like | | | | nowadays). The people of Terra could not adapt to the new environment and so | | | | they started declining with no chance of stopping it. The solution found was | | | | to put everyone into a deep sleep waiting for the time when Terra could | | | | finally raise again and live. For those who don't know it... Terra can be | | | | translated to English as Earth. PORTUGAL RULEZ!!! | | | | | | | | #12- Are there any other translation stuff like that? | | | | Of course! For example the Cafe Card Carta... Carta can be translated to... | | | | Card. So the Cafe is called Card Card. Prima Vista can also be considered a | | | | Portuguese world. Gato, from Chrono Trigger, is a robotic cat and Gato can | | | | be translated to Cat... and so on... | | | | | | | | #13- What is the Iifa Tree? | | | | The tree was placed there long ago by Garland for various purposes. A soul | | | | exists in a body and gains experience as it lives, when the body dies the | | | | spirit lives on to another body. The Iifa Tree disrupted this normal flow of | | | | souls so that Terra could finally consume all the planet. Also, the Tree was | | | | used to produce Mist. | | | | | | | | #14- How old is Garland? | | | | According to Zeb Purdin Square wanted to insert in FF IX a bit of all the | | | | Final Fantasies until now. Seems Garland IS the FF I Garland. So he must be | | | | about 2000 years old. | | | | | | | | #15- Are you sure of all the statements you have done in this FAQ? | | | | No and yes... Some of the statements are my personal opinion on the matter. | | | | But others are true and explained clearly in the game yet some people seem | | | | to keep missing it... | | | | | | | | #16- Are you in some way related to Square or Sony? | | | | No. But I wouldn't mind to... :) | | | | | | | | #17- Will you keep on updating this FAQ? | | | | I can't tell for sure. If there are good reasons to do so, then I will do it | | | | as soon as possible. But I have other FAQs and I'm also a webmaster. | | | | Unfortunately a day has only 24 hours which means I can't keep on tracking | | | | everything. | | | | | | | | #18- If I send you an e-mail will you answer it? | | | | I try to answer every mail I can... but if you ask questions that appear | | | | answered in the FAQ then you won't get a reply. But either if you have new | | | | questions or if you want to thank me for such a great Guide, or even if you | | | | want to give new secrets or correct other secrets then I will try to answer. | | | | Still, I can't promise anything... to know more check the mailing section. | | | | | | | | #19- Is there a pet store anywhere where I can get a Chocobo? | | | | Go for me pal, you DON'T want a Chocobo. They seem cute at first and they | | | | really are, but soon you will find out that's not all... They keep digging | | | | for treasures in you backyard and they will grow so big they won't fit in | | | | the house. Just get yourself a dog... | | | | | | | | #20- What happened to Vivi? | | | | Being a Black Mage Vivi would eventually stop but he had enough time to have | | | | kids. Being a prototype Vivi's lifespan is longer but in the end he would | | | | die as all the Black Mages. | | | | | | | | #21- What happens if I piss off Moguo??? | | | | Why do you guys keep asking this question??? NOTHING... NOTHING HAPPENS!!! | | | | Is your life so miserable that all you care about is pissing off a creature | | | | that doesn't even exist?? Don't you have anything else to do??? Why don't | | | | you try to beat Ozma with nothing equipped except a weapon and with no | | | | support abilities... there's a way to occupy your time... | | | | | | | | #22- How do you level up your characters to level 65? | | | | Check out the BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF THOSE GRAND DRAGONS section. In there you | | | | will find all the info and tips you need. | | | | | | | | #23- How do you level up your characters to level 99? | | | | Check out the BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF THOSE YANS section. In there you will | | | | find all the info and tips you need. | | | | | | | | #24- Have you seen any screw up anywhere? | | | | Many of them. When Zidane starts chasing Dagger in the beginning of the game | | | | he has an armour of one of the Pluto Knights but when Steiner spots them he | | | | no longer has it... did he took it off in the middle of the chase of what!? | | | | Ruby was at the Theatre Ship while doing the play... in fact she played | | | | Cornelia yet when the ship crashes in Evil Forest she's still at | | | | Alexandria... what happened!? Did she jumped overboard? There are many | | | | more... maybe someday I will make a whole section with these... | | | | | | | | #25- Are you planning to do any FAQs for any other Final Fantasy? | | | | Sure... As long as they keep on coming... | | | | | | | | #26- Your Guide is awesome, but one thing's missing...a Walkthrough. Why | | | | don't you make one? | | | | I have various reasons not to make a FAQ. First of all it would consume to | | | | much energy/time. Second, why do you want a Walkthrough? Is the game THAT | | | | difficult that you can't figure out for yourself? Third... don't you feel a | | | | bit dumb for using a Walkthrough? The games were made to amuse you. If you | | | | have a piece of paper with how to go through every part of the game... how | | | | funny can that be? | | | | | | | | #27- Then why do you do FAQs? | | | | My FAQs are made for people that already have completed the game. Most | | | | people believe I do this to help people get through the game but the truth | | | | is that I do this to help gamers who want a complete game. | | | | | | | | #28- WHat is your favourite character in the whole game? Why? | | | | That would have to be Vivi. He has a tremendous power, a pure heart and a | | | | very emotional life. He's cool. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:. AUTHOR'S FICTION - THE RISE OF THE INVINCIBLE .:. 15/002 | | | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | | | | The tale to be told is based on an ancient manuscript found in the ruins of | | | | Alexandria Castle and written by Garnet before her death. | | | | 25 years after defeating Necron and establishing the order on Gaia the whole | | | | 8 members of the Salvation Party (as they were called) settled down to live | | | | a quiet and peaceful life. Burmecia, Lindblum and Alexandria were totally | | | | rebuilt and the Outer continent was now populated thanks to the Hilda Garde | | | | model which served as an inspiration to a whole new type of ships. The lost | | | | people of Creyra found a new settlement on the Iifa Tree and Fossil Roo was | | | | now a populated place. | | | | Zidane and Garnet married and had a daughter, Iris a powerful magician and | | | | very quick of mind. Steiner also married Beatrix and they had a son, Manon, | | | | an incomparable swordsman like his parents. Freya watched the rebuilt of | | | | Brumecia together with Fratley and they had a son, Eru. Vivi went to live in | | | | the Black Mage Village where he had 5 sons before he stopped. Eiko was | | | | adopted by Regent Cid and Hilda and after their death she formed the Empire | | | | of Lindblum, carrying on Cid's wishes as an explorer. Quina established on | | | | the Outer Continent's Qu's Marsh and lived a peaceful life teaching the new | | | | ways of the Qu Clan. Amarant became a lone wolf and travelled thought the | | | | continent protecting the weak until his death. For 25 years life went on | | | | until one day... The village of Dali grew quickly in 25 years thanks to a | | | | new agricultural system never seen before. With more and more habitants the | | | | Observatory Mountain became the Southern Port - a place of import/export, a | | | | huge market for various products and shelter for ships. The village became a | | | | city but at a certain point disaster struck. In a single night the whole | | | | city was destroyed. No survivors were found. | | | | All over the continent defences were up and everyone was alert. A council | | | | was reunited to discuss the event and was held in Alexandria Castle. | | | | At the council were Zidane and Garnet representing the people of Alexandria, | | | | Freya representing the Dragons of Burmecia, Eiko representing the population | | | | of the Empire of Lindblum, Quina representing the Qu Clan of Qu's Marshes | | | | all around the world and Mikoto representing the Black Mages and the Genomes | | | | of Black Mage Village. | | | | | | | | Zidane: My friends... We are gathered here to discuss the terrible events | | | | that struck our hearths. | | | | Garnet: We must discover what happened in Dali and the responsible. | | | | Eiko: Does anyone know what might have caused the destruction? | | | | Quina: Things wrong, nature afraid. Something bad going to happen. | | | | Zidane: Whatever it is we must prevent it. | | | | Mikoto: Was it an Eidolon? | | | | Garnet: It is possible although the only known descendants of the people of | | | | Madain Sari are Eiko and me. No one else can control Eidolons and | | | | since there is no one else who can do it... | | | | Freya: Magic then??? | | | | Mikoto: It's possible... although it would need an immense amount of energy | | | | and magical power to destroy the city in one blow. | | | | Freya: Why one blow? | | | | Zidane: Whatever destroyed Dali did it so fast that no one was able to | | | | contact us or escape. We got no message and no survivors were found. | | | | Eiko: Either way we must know more... I propose to send someone to check | | | | the site. | | | | Garnet: I agree, a team of explorers is ready to leave. | | | | Freya: Couldn't we send the kids? | | | | Garnet: Our sons? Is there need to it? | | | | Zidane: I agree with Freya... it's not a difficult task and they need | | | | training if they want to be the next generation of the Salvation | | | | Party... He! He! He! | | | | Eiko: I will go to... It's been ages since I last had an adventure and | | | | besides... someone has to get a hold of those kids. | | | | Quina: My student, Quin will go. He need practice... | | | | Mikoto: I would like that Meholin could go to. He's a Black Mage that I | | | | adopted after the death of his parents... | | | | Garnet: So be it... | | | | | | | | And so Iris, Manon, Eru, Eiko, Quin and Meholin went on to the ruins of | | | | Dali. Various teams from all the 3 Kingdoms were gathered but nothing was | | | | left, the city, the farms, the port... nothing was left except a big black | | | | circle in the ground from the immense fire. Everything was disintegrated. | | | | The party returned home with no clue of what caused the disaster, if it was | | | | casual or a precise attack, if it would stop or continue with the | | | | catastrophe. | | | | | | | | Manon: I regret to inform the council no clues were found. | | | | Zidane: It's alright Manon... whoever did it did it well. | | | | Iris: All that was left was a perfect circle on the ground. Nothing else. | | | | Garnet: This is not good... we are vulnerable. | | | | Quina: Something going to happen. I feel change. Birds no longer sing, | | | | frogs are going away from marshes. Chocobos are crazy and Gargants | | | | run wild. I afraid. | | | | Mikoto: A new dark shadow arrises... Kuja? | | | | Zidane: Kuja died Mikoto... and he died in peace... | | | | | | | | ...A guard barges in... | | | | | | | | Guard: Sir... Your Majesty... A message, from the Black Mage Village | | | | Zidane: Proceed... | | | | Guard: The message said: "Danger! Mist covers the Iifa Tree and monsters | | | | lurk everywhere. Paths to the Iifa Settlement are blocked and a | | | | shadow rises. The blue ship from the old man has returned. Send help | | | | quickly, life's in danger." | | | | Sir... the message was sended by Vivian, Sir Vivi's daughter. | | | | Mikoto: Blue ship... the Invincible? | | | | Garnet: Impossible... it was destroyed... together with Memoria. | | | | Eiko: Mist. Again, mist all over the world. | | | | Zidane: Seems the mist comes once again from the Iifa Tree which means the | | | | Mist will travel though the roots of the tree. After the violent | | | | reaction of the Iifa Tree when Memoria ceased to exist the roots | | | | that filled the Mist Continent where gone... he might be safe for | | | | now. | | | | Garnet: It's urgent we send someone... our lives might depend on it. | | | | Freya: Iris, Manon, Eru, Eiko, Quin, Meholin... we all count on you. | | | | Zidane: Go! Go and free your heart of such a doubt. | | | | | | | | On board of the Galeon the party flies to the Outer Continent heading for | | | | the Black Mage Village. 25 years passed with no change... But there were | | | | less Black Mages. Genomes on the other hand flourished. The party rests | | | | there for a night. Yet, another city was destroyed - Conde Petie, a tourist | | | | paradise was terminated with no survivors. The party rushed to the Iifa Tree | | | | determined to find the cause of the rise of the Invincible. | | | | | | | | Eiko: The Iifa Tree... Exactly as I remembered it... | | | | Eru: Look... Up in the sky... It's... | | | | Eiko: The Invincible... by the spirits... | | | | Meholin: It's coming down!!! | | | | Quin: Someone descending... | | | | | | | | ...Garland appears... | | | | | | | | Eiko: Garland!!! | | | | Garland: You are not welcomed here... my plan cannot fail. | | | | Eiko: Your plan died years ago when we defeated you. | | | | Garland: Defeat me? Me? The powerful Garland? Who are you? | | | | Iris: He doesn't seem to remember. | | | | Eru: He was supposed to be dead. How can he be alive? | | | | Garland: Dead? I? You seem to be mistaken... | | | | Eiko: Garland... Terra was destroyed... | | | | Garland: What do you know about Terra? Who are you? | | | | Voice: ...Kill them... | | | | Garland: Kill them!!! | | | | Eiko: You asked for it... | | | | | | | | In a huge battle the party defeats Garland but then he disappears... | | | | | | | | Iris: He's gone! Gone! | | | | Eiko: This is bad... | | | | Garland: Young adventurers... thank you for freeing my soul... | | | | Your goal is in Terra... in Terra | | | | Eiko: Terra? Shimmering Island... | | | | | | | | With the Galeon the party notices the open portal of Terra and enter... | | | | | | | | Eiko: Terra... | | | | Voice: Yes... Terra... | | | | Eru: Who are you? | | | | Voice: Call me... the Lord of Death | | | | Eiko: Necron... what have you done to Garland? | | | | Necron: Garland is a perfect pawn to manipulate. You see... Kuja never | | | | really destroyed Terra. He tried but I managed to convince him not | | | | to do so. It was a sort of a plan B in case my intentions would | | | | fail. I only had to bring Garland from the dead and erase part of | | | | his mind. Creating a new Invincible was the hard part but while | | | | erasing Garland's mind I was able to extract the plans of | | | | construction. It was indeed rather difficult... | | | | Meholin: Seems our only choice is to destroy you once and for all... | | | | Necron: What a fool... you can't destroy me... I am death. | | | | Eiko: You forgot something Necron... the Holy Judgment. | | | | Necron: Alexander??? He is dead... | | | | Eiko: Is he? Then confront his spirit... HOLY JUDGMENT BRING FORTH THE | | | | MYTHICAL ALEXANDER!!! | | | | | | | | ...Necron is mortally wounded... | | | | | | | | Necron: How... he didn't survive... | | | | Eiko: Fool... Alexander is an Eidolon... a spirit fed on legends... he | | | | will exist as long as we believe he exists... | | | | | | | | ...Necron dies... | | | | | | | | Without Necron the Mist stopped, the shadow faded and the birds returned. | | | | Life was back on tracks and a new generation assumed the responsibility of | | | | the planet as part of the Salvation Party. | | | |______________________________________________________________________________| | | ______________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | | .:.
