Final Fantasy VIII Hints

  • Beating Adel Easily

    You only need the GF Cactuar and his ability Kamikaze. When jou use Kamikaze to Adel, then she will be dead in no-time. (do the same thing to the sorceresses)
    Submitted by Kevin van meurs
  • Beating some Bosses Easily

    Diablos
    Get a few doubles(draw at least 3 from elvoret) and cures. The best time to defeat him is as soon as you get the lamp he's in. At the battle, instantly cast double on yourselves and cure yourselves constantly. Draw demi from him until he's low on HP and use all your Gf's.
    Bahamut
    Junction 100 thundaga and tornado to your defense. Cast shell on yourselves when the battle begins, and use tripled magics, limit breaks, etc... The only hindrance he should give to you is the mega flare - about 200-300 Hp of damage, if you casted shell on yourselves already.

  • Best way to beat omega

    BEFORE BATTLE
    Make sure that you get laguna card and then modify into 100 hero's and try to have lionheart for squall, and have your characters at full health.
    BATTLE
    Keep healing your characters with curaga to make sure that they stay at 9999 hit points. When omega uses his burning move it will take off 9998 damage. Now have each character use one hero on themselves and omega will not be able to hurt you leaving you to keep pounding him with your limits as you are only on 1 point. After about 3-4 limits with each character have them use another hero and no-one will even die once.

  • How to get the Lion Heart in the disk 2

    The items needed for the Lion Heart (Squalls best weapon)
    1-Admantine
    4-Dragon Fangs
    12-Pulse Ammo
    Admantine can be aquired by stealing it from BGH251F2 with mug ability or by using card mod on the minotaur's card
    Dragon Fangs are droped by Blue Dragons, T-rexaur's.Blue Dragons can be found in the bika forests right outside of the trabia garden
    Pulse Ammo can be aquired by muging Blitzes for a power generator.Power generator's are rare to mug from a blitz so getting it may take a while. Blitzez can be found in the sarenghetti forest by the centra ruins.
    Quezecolt-card mod
    Diablos-mug Draw early on in the game

    Speed is everything

    Be careful, save every 20 minutes

    Keep Squall in Yellow, it's fun

    Keep your G.F.'s happy, but don't use them too often, your SeeD rankings go down... just like running away a lot.

    If at first you don't succeed, throw your controller at the screen screaming how bad of a game this is. j/k, this is a really awesome game, try finding the enemy's weakness and exploit, exploit, exploit!

    If at first you don't succeed, try again!

    Draw from all bosses, never know what you can get!

    Have lots of fun!

    Play cards alot, and morph almost every new monster you come across, sometimes more than once. It helps later in the game.

    Spend you time drawing Melt from an enemy with Laguna in the 3rd disk, don't be afraid to stop the enemys to do so.

    Too weak to kill an enemy? Use Melt to do maximum damage!

    To use limit, use Aura or be at low health. If it doesn't apear right away, don't fret! Just keep hitting Triangle.

    To get Squalls 2nd best weapon in the 1st disk:
    In Galbadia Garden go play everyone cards there, collect as many cards as you can. Then use Quazlcoat's Ability 'Change cards to Items' and change Toonberry to Cutting Knife, fight the guys around Gulbadia Garden to get a lot of Bolts, get 2 of the card on the 5th page-1st card, and turn 3 Adamantian turtles into Shell. You don't need the magazine to buy the Weapon, you just need all the materials, and it will show up in the shop, the magazines are for you to know what items you need. Details by Sniper Wolf

    Keep your levels low in the first disk, try changing everyone you encounter into cards.
    In the second disk, get your level up high, enemies are easy when you are at lvl 100.
    For lots of AP, in the 2nd-4th disk, fight the Sabotendar (Cactus men) in the Desert by/on Cactus Island. For lots of Exp, go to the island nearest to Hell.
    In the 3rd/4th disk, put on encounter nothing (Diablo Party Ability) and run around Island nearest to Hell and Heaven hitting [Okay] button for the best spells.


    The only cheat I found (Cheat as in W-Item type) was being able to junction one magic to 5 different slots, on the same character. First you need the magic, say Ultima. Have 100 of them on Squall or whoever. Now you need to have Ultima junctioned on let's say, HP. Your other 3 Junctions are (For only using on 4), Attack, Elemental Defence, and Speed, put any type of magic on those, just remember what you put (ie. fire on Attack, shell on Elemental Defence, and Haste on Speed). Make sure you have no other Ultima, fire, shell, or haste on anyone else! Now go to the Magic screen, put 1 Ultima on Zell, Selphie, and Rinoa. Then trade fire for your 1 ultima on Selphie, shell for the 1 ultima on Zell, and haste for the 1 ultima on Rinoa. Go back to the Junction screen and admire! Don't take off Ultima or they all will go. If you messed up on any of these processes, start over, or you will be missing Ultimas on a few slots. You can give back haste and junk to Squall afterwards too. The maximum slots is 5, but you can do 2 or 3. ****This only works on the Japanese****


    Ultima Weapon is at the bottom of the Underwater Reaserch Facility, the place where you got Bahamut. There are pretty nasty enemies down there, so be careful, like it matters if you have everyone at level 100, which you should. Also, have Squall's Best Weapon equiped. First, you climb down the vine, then go hit the control panel, it will take off 4 points. In order to succed, you need 10 points left over. Go down stairs, now go to the other control panel and take off 2 points. Go down and hit the control panel nearest to where you came down, take off 1. Now there is another control panel there, hit it and take 4 off, go through the door that opens and add 7 points back on. Go out and go down, take off 1 point from the control panel and go on the elevator. Take off 4 points to get past this door, then it's a matter of fighting/walking down to the bottom. When you get down there, kill off Squall then finish the battle/run away. Use raise to bring him back alive, and keep him in the yellow. Hit the control panel and after a long sceen, you fight Ultima Weapon. The key to this battle is having Squall's Speed and Attack up. Use his D-Move on Ultima. It took me 4 limits to kill him.


    To beat Omega, you should have Squall, Rinoa, and Quistis in your party. Have everyone at max HP, highest evasion, highest speed, luck, and highest power. Have Death junctioned to status defence and for status attack, I heard don't put holy, but I put nothing just incase. Have Eden at level 50 or higher and life at 9,999. Try to have Squall's Lionheart, and have Squall enter the battle with Automatic Haste (Cerebus' Ability). Give Rinoa the ability to cast Melt and Leviathan's Fullcure. Give Quistis Eden, try to have him very happy so he goes fast. Before you enter the fight, enter a battle and kill off Squall. Leave the battle and cast Life1 on him or use a pheonix down, slow down the batlle speed to it's slowest. In the battle, have Squall use his Limit and Quistis use Eden, have Rinoa cast Melt on Ultima, any order, just do it. If you can't get Squall's limit, keep hitting triangle until you do. Just keep pounding Omega until he dies. Have Rinoa absorb Ultima's or use Omega's Ultima's against him. Have Quistis keep casting Eden, and Squall keep using his limits.

    To meet Omega, you first need to get your main party to the switching point near the fountain. Have your other party, from the entrance go up the stairs, to the right and in the door, go down stairs, then pull the rope for the bell... you should have 60 seconds to switch party members and all, but 10 seconds is used up by Zell looking up at the bell. Switch the party and go in the room straight ahead. Omega Weapon is hard to miss, so just talk to him.

  • Beating Adel

    Here is how to beat Adel easily.Right when the battle begins,caste HASTE on everyone.(Dont worry about attacking!)Adel will first cast Meteor,but just take it in it isnt that strong!Now with a guy who can use items,use Mega Potion.(get Mega Potion by refining 4 tents into one Mega Potion.It recovers 1000hp to everyone.Use Recovery med from item ability.)On your next turn, cast SHELL on everyone.Once again,dont worry about using attacks.When HASTE and SHELL are on, get one guy to use Mega Potion constantly.Use your other two guys to kick the crap out of Adel with the DARKSIDE ability.If you do not have DARKSIDE,it is still pretty good to use regular attacks.Do this and everything should go real smooth and easy!

  • No Random Encounters

    There is a way to not fight any monsters on the world map besides using Diablos' encounter-none ability. If you walk on a road or train tracks, you won't have to fight any enemies. This is handy early on in the game when your HP is low and need to get to Balamb Garden or Balamb.

  • Get back rare cards you lost

    Sometmes you want to get cards such as Zell card or Laguna card,but you are afraid you will lose some players card or GF card to the person,and if you did not save,the card may be gone forever.

    Random rules are always(mostly) in those people which have good cards. But what if the card came out all lousy except for a good card,you defenitly lose the good card.And if the good card is VERY RARE then you may think you card is gone forever.

    Example: I played cards with Zell's mother. The random rule is in there. I got 4 lousy cards and a Seifer card. Zell's mother have all good cards,I of course lose the Seifer card. But no sweat! Just keep playing with her and keep winning her and soon she will have no choice but to use Seifer card.AND if you can win her,then you got back your Seifer card.

    And one more thing,around disk 2 or 3,try to change ALL your ENEMIES CARD,do not change the bosses or GFs or player card.This is a very good thing to do,because if you want to have easy wining in cards you MUST do this!

    Random may be a killer but you can make it look like a small fly.You see,when there are random rules,you don't have to be afraid.The cards will ether be boss card or Gf card or player card! Kinda cool huh! E-mail me for any questions.

Talk to him , then the elder who will instruct you to take the moomba guarding his house to talk to attendant. Follow the moomba and watch it talk to attendant. Attendant will help now. Talk to him and he will say that the work will be faster if they had artisan helping them. Go to artisan and talk to him(The house nearest to the shop). He will refuse so go to Fishermans horizon to meet the Artisans friend , the grease monkey found near where you fought the Galbadian soldiers. He will give you his moomba toy.Go back to Shumi village and see artisan again. This time he will agree after much convincing from the toy. Follow him to the shop and watch them work.

  • Power to the masses

    Want to be powerful? Play cards. Go to Gf screen and prioritize learning the magic refines(eg.Ice/water magic) and Card mod from Quazecotyl. Since you'll be in Balamb go to the beach and fight the fishes with your GFs. You earn 6Ap per fight. If you get the card capability from Quazecotyl heres what you can do. Win lots of Abyssmal worms. Convert to Windmills and windmills convert by Thunder/wind magic. You have tornado. This tornado is like a mini-Ultima junction it anywhere from HP-J to Spr-J and you'd be stronger. In HP in can give you a life as high as 3000+ while being a level 10 character. Remember all those fishfins you won. Convert those too to Waters.Its an easy spell to gain and can help you tremendously anywhere you junction it.Depends on the character you want. Prioritize those Magic refines and see the results. No more fuss about drawing spells , that was boring , you get stronger by playing cards and have fun too.Experiment with all the cars you can convert with the refines you'll never know until you try.

  • How to get the lionheart in Disc one (For card lovers only)

    This is easy you just need a few stuff, first is Quezecotyl's card mod and Ammo refine from Ifrit. Since most of the stuff you need to be powerful is in the cards I suggest that you play it in Balamb like there's no tomorrow.
    You need 20 elnoyle cards for the 2 energy crystals.Convert with Card mod to crytals and then Ammo refine to Pulse ammo. The Minotaur card for the adamantine and since you can't get dragon fangs from cards , fight a t-rexaur a couple of times and he'll drop 6 Dragon fangs at a time. 2 more than what you need. Go to the nearest junkshop and Voila , the Lion heart in Disc 0ne.

  • How to beat Diablos

    For me Diablos was a very hard Boss.It took me at least 20 tries to beat him because my levels were so high and so were his.But you can beat him very easily.All you have to do is blind him(because he has a physical attack that will kill you instantly).If you cant find any blind magic than youll have to wait to fight him until you do get blind.It is hard to blind him so my suggestion is to junction blind to your (hit) slot because it is easier to blind him that way.

  • Tips and Defeat also Cards

    TIpS From Gavin CheAH AGAIN

    1. If your having difficulty beating odin just go to the options and turn the battle speed up, the battles should be faster but the timer will be the same.
    You can land ragnarok at FH so you can go to the garden and continue the CC contest.

    2.When you want to level up quick just go to the island closest to heaven/hell and keep quistis in your party. Make sure Quistis' HP is low so she can use Blue Magic then when you get into a fight use DeGenerator and your opponent is dead in one shot.

    3.First put the enemy in zombie than have someone use recover on that enemy, the enemy should die instantly.

    4.Use element defense junction x4...... Junction 100 ultima, 100 full life, and 100 life and you will absorb EVERY element.

    5.Go to the Cactus Island and attack those little cactus. They don't have much Experience to offer but the AP is great. 20AP per one cactus. The only catch is that they tend to run away, so junction yourself some speedy stuff.

    6. Did you know that you can land your ragnarok at esthar airport, its the big cylindrical building and when you stop above it the text esthar airstation appears and pressing X makes you land.

    7.Draw, draw, draw magics until your stock of magic is 100 for each magic. The more magic you have the more powerful the junction will be.

    8.You can discard magic you dont want by going to the Magic Menu and selecting the magic you dont want and pressing the square button to discard that magic.

    9.The Ragnarok has an autopilot. Open the large World Map and select your destination and press the X button. Press the X button again to confirm your destination

    10.Consider keeping multiple saved games. There maybe a time when you want to return to a part in the game to get something you missed.

    11.Some Save Points and Draw Points are hidden. You can see these hidden points by junctioning an active character with the Move-Find ability

    12.Enemies level up as your characters level up. Their spell inventory will change as well

    13.Talk to everyone and then talk to them again. Most people will have more than one thing to say. Never assume that someone has told you everything they have to tell.

    14.With the Familiar Ability from GF Tonberry. You can buy all the Weapons Monthly Magazine, all the Combat King Magazine, and all the Pet Pals Magazine in Esthar shops

    15.A character can carry 100 of a single spell and 32 different spells.

    16.Limit Breaks: Make one of your characters HP brought to a critical level. During a battle keep skipping turns between your characters using the circle button until your critical character activates his limit break. After the limit break is done, do the same process of skipping turns to activate the limit break again.

    17.Easy Victory: Junction 100 Death Spells to your Status-Attack and kill most enemies instantly.

    18.Use Amnesia Greens to make a GF forget an ability if the GF ability Menu is full or a certain ability has lost its effect. For example: If the GF has ST-Def-Jx2 and ST-Def-J, theres no need to keep ST-Def-J. Becareful, some special abilities cant be brought back if you remove them.

    19.Always double-check the game's decision when using the Auto Junction command. The game doesnt make any decision based on your surroundings.

    20.First teach your GF the boost ability. When summoned, hold down the select button and press the square button repeatedly. Do not press the square button when the pointer shows X or youll have to start from 75 again. The maximun is 250.

    21.Since the enemies stay the same level as you do, you can prevent them from getting strong by using the CARD command on the enemy during battle and change them into a card. That way you dont gain alot of experience and your characters wont level up too soon, and with a bonus of getting a card

    22.Squall, Irvine, and Quistis have the best limit breaks. Make good use of Quistis Mighty Barrier, a very great advantage you cant find anywhere in the game. Irvines Armor Shot is the second best in the game next to Squalls Lionheart.

    Defeat

    Malboro
    If your lucky, Odin will kill this monster for you, but then most of us are not.
    First make sure Squall's Strength is high so you can kill the Malboro alot faster.
    Make sure you have the ability Sts Def-Jx4 on Squall.
    Junction the following magic spells to your Status Defense.
    1 Pain
    2 Sleep
    3 Confuse
    4 Break
    Make sure you have 100 each of these magic spells or it wont work all the time.
    When the Malboro hits you with the Bad Breath attack, Squall will only be inflicted with the Berserk status. You wont be able to control Squall but he will keep pounding the Malboro with his gunblade. Make sure you hit R1 when Squall hits the Malboro. You should come out victorious.

    Malboro Tip from Kriss
    Junction 100 x Berserk, 100 x Sleep and 100 x Confuse spells to Quistis' status defense. Before this, have Quistis on her Limit Break. When he casts Bad Breath on y'all, Quistis will be silenced and poisoned (and God knows else what!) but will still be eligble for attacking. You should now have the opportunity to cast Degenerator on Malboro and claim your Tentacles or crappy HypnoCrowns. Having Iniative and Alert also help.

    Malboro Tip from Micro
    I have thought up a lot easier way to get marlboro tenticels, all you need to do is have which ever character of yours usually strikes first have the mug ability, and theres a good chance that you will steal from it before the breath attack, then as soon as you steal, run.....and even if you cant run, but you manage to steal tenticles, wait for him to attack you once after the breath attack, then run and use remedy to heal yourself....i only had to fight 2 marlboros to get doomtrain

    Malboro Tip from Viva Yo
    Just junction initiative to the character that has Card Mod and use it with him. If it works youýll win the tentacles plus the card, (and when you have enough you change them into another tentacle) but if it doesnýt use any other strategy, try again or pray and die.

    Ruby Dragon
    Some people have a hard time defeating the Ruby Dragon but they are actually fairly easy.
    For this tip you must have Doomtrain.
    Just cast Doomtrain and the Ruby Dragon will be inflicted with the Slow Death status. Cast Protect on you party to lessen the Fire Breath damage from the Ruby Dragon. Dont attack the Ruby Dragon, just wait till the timer goes down to zero. Make sure you keep youself heald after taking some hits. Just sit and wait till the dragon dies.

    Ruby Dragon Tip from (no name given)
    Have someone cast cerebus, then cast protect on your whole party to resist his breath attack then cast meltdown on ruby dragon, then aura on squall, then renozuken ruby dragons butt off.(it takes about 2-4 renozukens to kill it).

    Adel Tip from Peter
    My way is simple, cast regen on rinoa (draw it), then just keep attacking adel consistently, if too little damage is done try spd +20 or 40%, or even darkside with regen. Holy heals him.

    Ultima Weapon
    Make sure your characters have Full-Life in their magic inventory cause Ultima Weapon has one hit kills and you wanna revive your characters to full health. Make sure you have plenty of Aura spells so you can activate your characters limit break. The good characters you can use are Squall, Irvine, and Quistis. Junction Auto-Haste, Auto-Shell, Initiative to your characters.
    When you go into battle the first thing you need to do is cast Cerberus to get the triple status on your party. Make sure your compatibility to Cerberus is high so he will come out right away. Next have one of you characters cast Meltdown on Ultima Weapon to lower its vitality so that your hits will take out more. Once Cerberus has been summoned, have one of your characters cast Aura on everyone and another character should cast Haste on everyone and another character should cast Shell on everyone. When you have the Aura status start using your limit breaks. Use Irvines Armor Shot and use Quistis Mighty Barrier to give you a great advantage. When you are low on HP, triple cast Curuga. When a character dies use Full-Life then use Cerberus or Triple to gain back the triple status. If you think you are about to loose and Ultima Weapon only has a few thousand HP use the Kamakazi for a last "desperation attack", it will take out about 30,000 to 60,000 HP. Also you might have at least one Hero item in your item inventory, if you do then use it. Hero makes a character invincible for a short period of time, but make sure you cast Aura first before you do the Hero item cause no magic will have effect on a Hero status. Good luck.

    Omega Weapon
    Preparations:
    Omega Weapon is probably the hardest enemy ever in the whole FF series.
    In order to beat him you need Hero items or Holy War items, its best if you have the Holy War instead.
    Hero makes one character invincible for a short period of time.
    Holy War makes the entire party invincible for a short period of time.
    To get Hero items you need to modify the Laguna card for 100 Hero.
    To get Holy War items you need to modify the Gilgamesh card for 10 Holy War.
    You need GF Bahamut, Cactuar, Eden, Cerberus. Junction each one of them to each one of your characters.
    Junction Auto-Haste, Auto-Shell, Auto-Protect, and Initiative to your characters.
    Set your battle speed to slow so you can buy yourself some time.
    Junction 100 Death Spells to your characters Sts Def-J.
    Make sure your compatibility with your GF is high.
    Use Squall, Irvine, and Zell.

    Battle
    When you go into battle the first thing Omega Weapon will do is cast LV?Death on you so you better have juntioned those Death spells or youre dead the first second of the battle. First cast Cerberus to gain the triple status, the character who has Initiative should do this, and another character cast Meltdown or Doomtrain to lower Omega Weapons vitality so that your hits take out more. Then have one of you characters cast Aura on everyone and another character cast Haste on everyone, and the last character should cast the Holy War. Make sure you dont cast Holy War first or the Aura and Haste wont work on your party. Then start using your Limit Breaks. For Irvine use his Armor Shot Limit Break. Keep using your limit break until the Aura status wears off then start using your GF, Cactuar, Eden, and Bahamut, these 3 are the only effective GF against Omega Weapon. When the Holr War wears off have one of your characters cast Aura on everyone then use the Holy War again. If you are in need of some healing, triple cast Curuga. If one of your party dies use Full-Life to revive that character to full health then use Cerberus again or Triple to gain the triple status then cast Haste. Good Luck !!!

  • Tips and Hints on Starting the Card Empire

    Even though you have the card ability, and you change everything on earth into cards, you still cant win cuz the cards around balamb suck? Dont start playing cards until you have Ifrit, Sacred, and Minotar. You should have those cards cause with only ifrit you are gonna lose him and whine to your mommy. Then proceed with your mad card skills and play and play and play and play and play and play and play until you have alot of cards. then use CARD MOD and change evrything into items. (espially the gespers cuz they are bad cards but refine into a black hole.)

  • Guide to Defeat Omega Weapon

    This is a guide to beat that oh so hard, monster from heak, Omega Weapon. In
    this guide I will give, requirements, suggested party, and order of Omega's
    moves.I will also tell where to get the required items.

    Omega's Death

    This is the strategy I used to send Omega to heak.

    Here are suggestions and requirements:

    LionHeart (weapon and limit break, suggested)
    At least 50 pulse ammo (Required)
    Recover Command (Required)
    Revive Command (Required)
    Defend Command (Essential)
    Exeter (Irvine's Ultimate Weapon, Required
    Entire party at 9999 HP (required)
    Str at 255 everyone (suggested, makes the battle a lot easier)
    All seals released (required)
    100 death on everyone's status defense (required)

    Ok are you ready? Omega will use these attacks in this order: 1.LV.5 Death 2.
    Meteor 3.Megido Flame(9998 damage to all) 4. Gravija(3/4 damage to all. 5.
    Terra Break ( Omega Weapon's deadly limit break) 6. Ultima 7. Meteor 8. Light
    Pillar (9999 damage to one) 9. Omega repeats all above steps.

    Suggested Party
    Squall Leonhart: Chosen because of Lion Heart (a.k.a. End of Heart) limit
    break. Equip with magic, auto-protect, auto-haste, Defend and GF abilites.

    Irvine Kinneas: Chosen because of Fast and Pulse Ammos used in limit break.
    Equip with auto-protect, magic, Recover, and GF abilites.

    Quistis Trepe: Chosen because of Mighty Guard limit break. Equip with Revive,
    auto-haste, magic, and GF commands.

    When the battle starts Omega will use Lv. 5 Death. cast Aura on everyone.
    Have Quistis use Mighty Guard, have Irvine use Fast Bullets until they
    finish, and Squall use Renzokoken. After Lv. 5 death Omega will cast Meteor.
    Have Quistis cast MightyGuard again, Irvine pound him with Pulse Ammo, and
    Squall hit him with a few Renzokoken(hope for a Lion Heart finishing blow,
    200,000 damage plus 50,000 from Renzokoken!) You might want to cast Meltdown
    on Omega, it will make Irvine and Squall much more leathal. After Meteor,
    Omega will cast Megido Flame (9998 damage to all) so make sure you are at
    full health. Don't bother to heal every one since his next attack, Gravija,
    will do nothing to you because you are already at 1 HP. Continue pounding
    Omega with limit breaks, have Quistis use Mighty Guard around twice. After
    hitting him with a few limit breaksheal everyone. Have Squall use the Defend
    command, And Irvine and Quistis summon GFs with high HP. Omega will now use
    Terra Break, this deadly move is about 5-8 physical hits, which do 2000-4000
    damage per hit. You survive this because if you used Defend Squall will take
    no damage. Quistis and Irvine should have protect on them from Mighty Guard,
    the GFs will take the punishment for them. After this attack Aura is probably
    worn off so cast it again on everyone. Then pound him with the same limit
    breaks. Omega decides to hit you with the 2nd strongest spell in the game.
    Ultima. You should survive since you should be still at around full health.
    After Ultima, pummel him with limit breaks as usual, but beware he will now
    cast Meteor. Following this, he will cast Light Pillar, so revive who ever
    gets hit it by it quickly. After Light Pillar, he will repeat all his attacks
    over. After the second Terra Break in the battle, you should be able to
    finish him. And remember, always use your limit breaks between Omega's
    attacks!

  • Easy Ultimitia Battle

    You need the Gilgamesh card. Card Mod it for 10 Holy Wars. I prefer to have Squall LV 100 Zell LV100 and Selphia LV 100 on my team. Make sure ech member has 100 Auras and 10 Triples. Have all the limits and Ultimate Weapons. Now fight her and use the basic strategy for her first form. For Griver and her other forms, use this strategy. 1. Use Squall and cast Triple on Selphia. 2. With Selphia cast Aura on all your of gays. 3. With Zell use a Holy War. Do it in the order I told you or it won't work. Every time your Aura and Holy War fade away, do steps 2 and 3

  • Easy way to defeat Ultima Weapon

    First make sure you have at least 10 auras. Next make sure you have Full-lifes atleast 8.Also make sure you have Sqall's ultimate weapon Lionheart.Start this battle off by casting aura on Squall.Next have someone cast meltdown on Ultima Weapon.Have Squall Pound away with Renzuken with any luck Squall will use his Lionheart limitbreak.If Squall doesn't use Lionheart than when aura runs out just keep casting it and when meltdown runs out just keep casting it over and over until
    he DIES!Also keep in mind that Ultima has a nasty spell that K.O'S one party member.So have someone as a Medic with Full-life on them.Follow my instructions and this battle will be a brease.Oh and don't foget to draw Eden from Ultima. `

  • Card tips

    There are some ways to gets card much easily. Here are some:

    Seifer card: Fight Headmaster Cid in Garden bridge before you go down to FH.

    Angelo card: Fight Watts right away upon meeting h im in Timber. You can still fight him in the white seed ship later but using the difficult Centra rules.

    Rinoa card: Lose Ifrit card to Gen. Caraway in tentionally. He will play Rinoa's card on his deck often now and you have the chance of getting it. Win back your lost Ifrit card from Headmaster Martine who is in FH.

    Do not play in any place where there is a random rule unless very necessary like getting Laguna from Ellone on th lunar base and always remember to save before fighting in places that have the random rules. I hope this helps.
