| | 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...                                | |

| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | |
| | 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.            | |

| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | |
| | 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!              | |

| | 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.                    | |

| | 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.                                                      | |

| | 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.                                    | |

| | 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. You start off with few Magic Stones, but as you    | |
| | level up it's number will increase.                                          | |

| |  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.                               | |

| |  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.                                                             | |

| |  In trance, Steiner's attacks will do much more damage than what they        | |
| |  usually do. I believe his defence also raises.                              | |

| | Princess of Alexandria and a very pretty one, but she is not happy with her  | |

| |  Summon will make Garnet summon a Eidolon while White Magic let's her use    | |
| |  her healing and status changing magic.                                      | |

| |  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.                                                                      | |

| |  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).                                      | |

| |  of single ones. I believe his Flair abilities are also powered-up.          | |

| |  .:. 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.                              | |

| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | |
| | 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 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...                          | |
| |                                                                              | |

| | 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!!!             | |
| |                                                                              | |

| | When you summon Phoenix, she will cause Fire damage while reviving your      | |

| | Because the maximum Phoenix Pinions you can have is 99 the percentage is...  | |
| | %Chance = (99/256) x 100% = 38.671875% = 38.7%                               | |

| | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | |
| | 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.     | |

| | These letters do not need to be delivered in this particular order.          | |
| | I only registered these 24 letters, but my brother also played a bit of my   | |
| | game save, and in Mognet Central they say I delivered 27 letters, which      | |
| | means 2 letters are missing from this list.                                  | |
| |                                                                              | |
| |  The final letters you need to deliver are:                                  | |
| |  Kupo.2 - Atla.2 - Mogryo.2 - Kumool - Mois.2 - Noggy - Kupo                 | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | When Kupo receives the final letter from Noggy he will tell you the item     | |
| | that Mognet Central needs is the Superslick and that someone in Alexandria   | |
| | has it. So now go talk to Ruby (she's at the theatre) and she will give you  | |
| | the item needed. Now you need to rush to Mognet Central... don't know where  | |
| | it is?? Need a hint? To the North of Madain Sari is a relatively big island  | |
| | with a forest and some mountains, if you look closely there is a crack on    | |
| | one of the sides of the mountain... no, it's not a Chocograph treasure...    | |
| | it's the entrance to Mognet Central, so return here with a gold Chocobo and  | |
| | use a dead pepper to break your way through. Inside, give the Superslick to  | |
| | Artemicion. You will even receive a gift for all your trouble... a Protect   | |
| | Ring isn't he nice people.. let's give Artemicion a big hand!!!              | |
| | If your curious on how many letters you delivered one of the Moogles will    | |
| | give you that info. With all this training you can become a professional     | |
| | mailman.                                                                     | |

| | deals to offer you. If you can buy everything he has to offer you will get a | |
| | special gift... I think it's a Ribbon, but I don't know if that's correct... | |

| | In Dali's Observatory lives a old man named Morrid. He searches for 3 very   | |
| | special coffee beans - Burman, Moccha and Kirman Coffee. If you give him     | |
| | the 3 coffees he will in return award you with his Mini-Prima Vista.         | |
| |                                                                              | |

| | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | |
| | Burman Coffee        Dali's Windmill (Explained below)                       | |
| | Kirman Coffee        Eiko's Kitchen in Madain Sari                           | |
| | Moccha Coffee        In South Gate, in the fountain where Cinna made a       | |
| |                      coffee for all the gang when they left Evil Forest      | |
| |                      (seen in a ATE - "Baku and his crew")                   | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | The Burman Coffee is the harder to get because you need to get the Mayor's   | |
| | key in order to go through the locked door. To do that, return to the        | |
| | Mayor's house when he's not there, during the Card Tournament in Treno       | |
| | (Disc 3). You will be given the chance to explore the room. 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. Otherwise the Observatory will | |
| | be locked by roots just as the South Gate and Morrid will be dead because of | |
| | the earthquake that occurred when the roots of the Iifa Tree extended.       | |

| | Getting the 1st Excalibur is easy, but I can't say the same about the        | |
| | Excalibur II. To get it you will need no reach Memoria and defeat Lich in    | |
| | less than 12 hours. It's a race against time to get the most powerful sword  | |
| | in the game and every help is useful...                                      | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | Skip all ATE's and FMV's (open and close the disc cover to skip the FMV's)   | |
| | Don't save a lot and ride as much as you can with Choco to prevent battles   | |
| | (be careful because this will make your characters weak and impossible to    | |
| | defeat a boss). Put all the game speed at max. and pray to heavens so you    | |
| | can get there on time.                                                       | |

| | The Excalibur II is right on the screen where you fight Lich. Usually,       | |
| | there's a Save point in the left side of the room but if you're under 12     | |
| | hours the (?) will become an (!). Examine it and you'll get the Excalibur II | |
| | with a note from Gil's brother. It's somethin' like this...                  | |
| |                                                                              | |

| | Bro, I found the sword like you told me. But there were two of them.         | |
| | One of 'em had a lame name, somethin' II. It was a dingy, old thing with     | |
| | flashy decorations, something you'd probably like. So I went with Excalipur. | |

| | When Alexandria is being attacked by Bahamut Garnet will have to choose what | |
| | tasks she needs to give to the soldiers. The information for you to know     | |
| | which soldier should do what is given you by people or the soldiers          | |
| | themselves before the attack... way before the attack. You can know when you | |
| | delivered a correct task to a soldier by the answer he gives. If he says     | |
| | something like... "Fine, I'll do my best" they will probably not work as     | |
| | good as other soldiers but if they respond enthusiastically you can expect a | |
| | great performance from them. If you order them correctly Beatrix will give   | |
| | you the Angel Earrings. I had to repeat the section 3 times before knowing   | |

| | 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...                                      | |
| |                                                                              | |

| | 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.    | |

| | It's digging time... no need for a shovel. Just bring your Chocobo and he    | |

| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | |
| | 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... 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 location.                                                            | |

| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | |
| | 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.                         | |

| | There are 3 games you can play in Alexandria. 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...             | |
| |                                                                              | |

| | 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...        | |
| |                                                                              | |

| | At the beginning of disc 3 in Alexandria's Weapon Shop you can find Benero,  | |
| | Genero and Zenero... these guys want to play a game with you... you'll bet   | |
| | some money and then you need to memorize who is who... the brothers will     | |
| | shuffle positions and in the end they will ask you where is one of the       | |
| | brothers (because of that you need to remember all the 3 brothers and not    | |
| | only 1). 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. | |

| | In Memoria you can find the Legendary Synthesis, a mythical person that can  | |
| | make the finest and rarest items.                                            | |
| | Before fighting with Kraken, when Quina thinks she's underwater search       | |
| | behind the rocks. Keep on pressing the X BUTTON until someone talks to you.  | |
| |                                                                              | |

| | You will fight Hades, King of the underworld in a battle of life and death.  | |
| | Let's just hope it's his death and not yours...                              | |
| | He's hard, and I mean really hard. 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!!!                | |
| |                                                                              | |

| | 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!!!                                                   | |

| | 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...                                                     | |

| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | |
| | 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.                                                              | |

| | 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  | |

| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | |
| | 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.                       | |

| | There are two very important houses in Treno, the Auction House and the      | |
| | Knight's House. Each one of them award special events and items...           | |
| |                                                                              | |

| | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | |
| | The Auction House sells important items and rare equipments. But you can't   | |
| | get nothing unless you have a bit of money. Some items are more wanted than  | |
| | others and this can make the price go up way beyond the item's real value.   | |
| | To give your shot just get near the Auctioneer and press the X BUTTON. Now   | |
| | just choose the amount you want to use... and good luck Some items can be    | |
| | bought and sold later for a higher price to certain people which is good to  | |
| | raise some quick money...                                                    | |

| | This list is incomplete but I believe these are the most important items in  | |

| | you they're hard to beat so save the lousy game will ya!?                    | |
| | You will face... a Griffin, an Amdusias, a Catoblepas and a Behemoth. Each   | |

| | 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...                                                    | |

| | ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ | |
| | 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...                                                          | |

| | 33 Frogs           Bistro Fork                                               | |

| | 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       | |

| | at this point it's quite useless except for powering the Frog Drop.          | |

| | 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.                                   | |

| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | |
| | In Madain Sari there is kind of a sanctuary where Eiko used to pray every    | |
| | day before meeting Zidane. In Disc 4 the Eidolon Wall will be different and  | |
| | you will be able various writings about different stuff. 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...                                                                     | |

| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | |
| | In Black Mage's Village you can hear the OST of Final Fantasy III. You can   | |
| | only do it on Disc 4 and you will need to have Une's Mirror and Doga's       | |
| | Artifact so go buy them. Once you have them, start playing the gramophone in | |
| | Black Mages Village Inn and the songs will be from Final Fantasy III         | |

| | 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.                                                                        | |

| | 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.   | |
| |                                                                              | |

| |  #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."                                                  | |

| | Your Card Collector Rank depends not only on the number of cards you've got  | |
| | but also on other variables...                                               | |
| |                                                                              | |
| |  Having one unique card type: 15 points                                      | |
| |  Having a unique card, but has the same arrow arrangement as another card in | |
| |  your collection: 10 points                                                  | |
| |  Having more than one of the same card type: 5 points per card               | |
| |  Having a card with level X: 1 point added                                   | |
| |  Having a card at level A: 1 point added on top of the point for X level     | |
| |                                                                              | |
| |  So as others have already said, to get 1700 Card Collector points, you need | |
| |  all 100 types of cards in 100 unique arrow arrangements                     | |
| |  (15 x 100 = 1500 pts), and all at level A (2 pts added x 100 = 200 bonus    | |
| |  points). Before you card fanatics start despairing over having 100 arrow    | |
| |  arrangements, you may wanna know that you could have:                       | |
| |                                                                              | |
| |  1 arrangement of 0 arrows (I don't think this card counts for any points)   | |
| |  8 arrangements of 1 arrow                                                   | |
| |  28 arrangements of 2 arrows                                                 | |
| |  56 arrangements of 3 arrows                                                 | |

| | Saynt (rampage200110@yahoo.com) for the alternative strategy on getting      | |
| | loads of Gil.                                                                | |

| |  .:. 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."                                     | |

| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | |
| | Want some AP?? 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...                           | |

| | 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...                                               | |

| | Go to the Qu's Marsh with the Excalibur II and I and talk to that            | |

| | 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!)                                                                     | |

| | 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  | |

| | Butt and Eiko's name to Naked and go to Mist Continent's Qu's Marsh, talk to | |

| | 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.                                                                        | |

| | 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 | |

| | 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!).                                       | |

| | 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.)                                | |

| | 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).                 | |

| | 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.                            | |
| |                                                                              | |

| | drop, and Eiko's healing abilities. Also, equip everyone with status         | |
| | protecting accesories/abilities and shadow absorbing armor. Levels past 70   | |

| | 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.                                                                        | |

| | without ever losing. After all that the Moogles will come around you and     | |

| | 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   | |

| | anyway? He's not even part of the story) and they will suddenly disapear. Go | |
| | down the stairs and you will be at brahne's grave. talk to the man beside    | |
| | him and he will offer you the excalibur 2000. if you accept, you will have   | |
| | to enter a mini-game to dig up brahne's grave (VERY hard.) If you get more   | |
| | han 100%, the man will say ''sucker!!!'' and run away. When you exit, you    | |
| | will see the, like, 21st ending in which everything is destroyed because you | |

| | that a passage is now open. Go into a room, in which the walls are made of   | |

| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | |
| | #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.                                   | |

| | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ | |
| | Version 1.0 - Everything you see was created. A whole world within this      | |
| |               Guide. Some minor things might be changes in the next          | |
| |               versions. It took me a while to complete this FAQ... months of | |
| |               research and a one more to do the Guide itself... my previous  | |
| |               FAQ was WAY much easier to create and took WAY less time.      | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | Version 1.2 - Corrected some major, huge mistakes in the layout. Also added  | |
| |               some info on the character's skills. I need help people... I'm | |
| |               looking for anyone who can provide me the locations of ALL the | |
| |               cards in the game... can you help me??? Mail me pleaze.        | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | Version 1.5 - Added the info on the element types. Added a strategy to beat  | |
| |               Grand Dragons and Yans. Rafa and Jack K. have their nicks      | |
| |               posted instead of their real names... and I'm still looking    | |
| |               for anyone that can provide me info on the card locations.     | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | Version 1.8 - Mistakes corrected, FAQ altered (some answers were wrong),     | |
| |               added the Location of the Phantom Masters. Locations of most   | |
| |               of the carts added - thanks to me. Added also the info on Ozma | |
| |               about Level, MP, EXP, AP and things like that.                 | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | Version 2.0 - More card locations added (thanks to me) and some very         | |
| |               important mistakes were corrected. Plus, the mailing stuff     | |
| |               section was remodelled. Added those runes and engraved words   | |
| |               all over the Guide and in a dedicated section to it. Also      | |
| |               added a section dedicated to the 4 Jewels. Changed some        | |
| |               answers on the FAQ and added a few more.                       | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | Version 2.2 - Added the completed 4 Jewels section - forgot to add it to the | |
| |               previous version. Also, added easier locations to get some of  | |
| |               the cards. Plus, added the Feelings to the cast section and    | |
| |               changed some other minor stuff in that part of the FAQ.        | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | Version 2.4 - Stupidly, I mistaken the name of Zidane's Ultima Weapon and    | |
| |               called it Ultima Sword (Steiner's Weapon). My mistake... sorry | |
| |               about that. Changed some minor stuff in the Tetra Master Game  | |
| |               Scoring System. Also added a question to the FAQ and changed   | |
| |               another. Plus... I added a sort of a calculating system to see | |
| |               your status rate. My game is 96% Completed. Updated my game    | |
| |               info and changed some stuff in that section.                   | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | Version 2.5 - New design. Added the info on Tantarian, one cool alternative  | |
| |               boss i forgot to mention. Also changed the location of the     | |
| |               characters section. Added another question to the FAQ.         | |
| |               Remember... Make love, not war.                                | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | Version 2.8 - New KraZymAdaFaKeR ASCII Artwork and some new FAQ questions.   | |
| |               Removed the Darkrose project and added the Author's Fiction.   | |
| |               Also removed the info on my game... it sounded a bit cocky by  | |
| |               publishing it.                                                 | |
| |                                                                              | |

| | Version 3.2 - Update on the series facts, updated the law stuff section,     | |
| |               added a question on the FAQ. Inserted an alternative way to    | |
| |               gain more Gil and corrected some mistakes on the Mognet        | |
| |               Central Guide and on 2 of the Paradise Treasures.              | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | Version 3.4 - Removed the section about the series. Changed a bit of the     | |
| |               layout.                                                        | |
| |                                                                              | |

| |                                                                              | |
| | Version 3.8 - New administration takes on the FAQ. Phantom Workz Corp. is    | |
| |               now the owner of the Secrets of the land. Yet, I am still the  | |
| |               FAQmaster in charge of it.                                     | |
| |                                                                              | |
| | Version 4.0 - Huge layout changed. Also much of the content suffered a       | |
| |               change. More than that, the FAQ is much more organized and the | |
| |               new layout is more user friendly.                              | |
| |                                                                              | |
