GBA | Submitted by corey blauveltEscape Chaos Shrine at Chaos' Lair
When you get warped back 2000 years, and you can't find a way out (because there is none), go to the floor where you fight Tiamat. You should fight some purple worm-like monsters. Keep fighting them until you get an item called emergency exit. Use it and you will teleport out of the Shrine!
GBA | Submitted by ChrisBest Balanced Party
First choose either a warrior, monk, or red mage. Warriors are well rounded and can deal large amounts of damage. When upgraded to a knight they can learn white magic spells up to lv.3. Monks aren't much at first and can't equip much armor or weapons. Once they reach a higher lv. their bear hands will deal damage stronger than most weapon strikes. Although they gain plenty of HP their defense is low. Red mages are pretty balanced. Then choose a thief for better battle luck such as fleeing and striking first. Then choose a black mage. Black mages learn a lot of devastating spells, some of which can hit multiple targets. Then finish the party with a white mage. They can learn more than valuable healing spells like "life" and some spells that are deadly against undead monsters.

Get the levistone out of the Ice Cave in the continent of the Crescent Lake...
First you must defeat the Earth Fiend, after you accomplish that go talk to one of the 12 sages in Crescent Lake. He will then give you a canoe and that will enable you to get to the Fire Fiend and the Ice Cave on that Continent. After you defeat the Fire Fiend go to the Ice cave and Explore untill you get the Levistone.. After the Levistone travel to the Continent to the North of Crescent Lake. There you will find a very large desert. Travel to this desert and explore. ( YOU WILL NEED THE LEVISTONE FOR THIS PART) You will then get the airship. I was able to get this at about the 6th hour of gameplay. Once you have the airship you are capable of changing your character class and this is a very important and very smart play to get this done as early as possible.

First make sure you have at least 40 000 gil, you will need these. Then go to the desert to the left of Onrac. Walk up besides the forest and go into the tent. Now purchase the bottled fairy. Take the fairy to Gaia(on the northern tip of the continent to the left of Onrac). She will fly out of the bottle, then go to their spring and talk to her. She will retrieve some Oxyale for you. Now go to Onrac again. Talk to the girl that stands infront of the submarine. She will disappear. Now you can use the submarine to go down to the Sunken Ruins. In the Sunken Ruins you will find both the Rosetta stone and the Fiend of Water. When you've found the Rosetta stone go up to onrac again, then get on your airship. Fly to melmond and talk to the guy that stands at the graves. He will get exited and learn you Lufenian(Or something like that..) language. This is the language that the people of Lufenia speaks. Go to Lufenia and talk to the townsfolk. One will give you a bell that grants you entrance to the Mirage Tower.
GBA | Submitted by ghEEdHow to easily defeat Fiends
I did this with a team consisting of a Warrior, Redmage, Monk and a Whitemage. What you do is getting the following spells: Haste, Invis and Temper. It is a good idea to get protect, although it isn't needed. A Redmage can learn all these spells. Then you just get your Redmage(or Whitemage) to cast all these spells on your Warrior. He will generally do above 350 damage per hit.
Extra: When I finished the Bahamut quest(see below) I tried this strategy on my Master(Monk) and he did over 850 damage!

When you defeated the Fiend of Earth go to Crescent Lake and talk to the sages(If you don't know where they are go to the right into the woods and there they are). You should now be given a canoe of one of the sages. This is supposed to be used to go kill the Fiend of Fire, well dont. now go to the spot marked on the worldmap thats over Mount Gulg(thats to the right of crescent lake). When you're there, enter the Cave of Ice and walk until you find the levistone. You can't reach it at this point because of the cracks. Just walk onto any crack(if you don't want the treasure first). When you've fell down go down and then right(or one step more down, I don't remember exactly) until you find a stair. Walk up the stair and go out from the room you've entered. Now in that room walk down and right into another room. Save at this point if you havn't. Walk on a crack and pray that you get the right one. I made this at my first try so i don't know if you can go wrong, but you can't be too careful. Get the levistone and walk on a crack. Get up in the room but this time walk up and right, aaah freedom! Now to the fun part! Go to the desert below Crescent Lake(Ryukahn Desert) and walk into it. You should be seeing a small cinematic where you see the sands widen and a airship come out. Tadaa, there's your airship! While in the air you wont get attacked.

This is the quest to upgrade you charachters. When you've got the airship(see below) take your airship to the Dragon Caves, look at the world map to se where they are(It's the small ilands clustered together). Then go to the top left one, in the lower hole and proceed until you reach Bahamut. He speaks of a token of your courage. Get up from the cave and get into the airship. It's a good idea to visit all caves, there are some very nice treasures. When you're done with all the caves get into the airship and fly east, to the large island. When flying over it you should see a castle, if not then check your worldmap. That castle is the Citadel of Trials. Land as close as you can to the castle and get in. Finish the trials(it's just two) and sit down on the throne. You will be given a rat's tail. Fly to Bahamuts lair again, and speak to him. He will now evolve your charchters!
GBA | Submitted by Roger BurkhartEasy Way To Beat Garland
I've found out that the easiest way to beat Garland is to fight enough battles so that you have enough gil to buy all of the armor for everybody, that way when he hits you, he only does 1 or 2 damage to you. It will also help if you buy the best weapons for everybody so you can defeat him quicker.
