This guide is going to explain how to obtain the legendary blacksmith.

She wanders the land when your far enough into the game, and after doing

a certain quest, obtainable only via Mognet. So prepare to spend time getting

some Friend Codes, or FC's. 

If you don't have WiFi, then get some nearby friends, or if you MUST, get

a USB adapter for it. Although it has pretty bad range, it'll work.

I. Introduction


The Legendary Smith, is an amazing thing. She is a NPC that wanders the land,

searchign far and wide for each rare metal to tamper and create! Notice it 

sounds JUST like Pokemon? If you've ever played those games, remember hunting

for Suicune, Entei, and Raikou? Or the more recent Latios and Latias.

After getting her to start moving, she walks around area by area, shifting 

every time you arrive in a town. 

She hands out Mastery Items, whether it be armor, gloves, helms, or weapons,

they can only be used by it's respective job, and it's power is un-parallel.

And when you meet her with the character, you'll also get a card.


II. WiFi


To get mail, or send mail, you need Friend Codes, but before those, you'll

need a WiFi connection. This is what links you around the world. This allows

you to download mail, and them to receive it. At the Title Screen, you can

see WiFi connection. If you have a DSL, or a Broadband of certain sorts, it'll

automatically hook up when you press the button, and you'll establish a link.

When you within this link's area, you can use WiFi. If you don't have DSL, and

only have Dial Up (lol), do not fear! They have on sale at your local Gaming

Department, a WiFi USB! Although bad range, it will allow WiFi, just plug it in

to a computer with Dial Up or a bad Broadband, and it'll create a decent WiFi

link, that will at least allow Mognet. Just don't walk too far away.


III. How to Obtain


This will be a LONG thing. It is advised to do this after the 4th Crystal and

Unei and Doga, which is pretty far, almost 3/4 into the game. But doing it

later will have the following pro's.

-Better Airships

-Easier Traveling

-Easier to Kill Monsters

Now, without further ado, let's begin!

Part 1.

Step 1. Get at least 10 FC's. And add them and make sure they add you.

Step 2. Send volleys of mail using Mognet.

Step 3. Every time you send a mail to them, send one to Princess Sara.

Now, after the 4th message, she'll request you meet her and ask you to

fix her pendant. We're saving the world, and you want us to fix a pendant?!

Of course we'll do it! But seriously, do it. It'll be worth it.

But how? TAKKA! Refia's dad, a master Mitheral Smith should be able to

fix it right? WRONG!

Now start trading mail with him. On HIS 4th reply, he'll mention the legendary

smith, go to NW Saronia, and you'll find her there, near trees and a few 

houses. She has silver hair and stands out from generic NPC's.

She'll agree to fix it, but she wants something. She isn't asking for much,

just you helping her find Orichlium! Well, that's easy. You get a fixed pendant

and you just give her your word. Return Sara's pendant to her.

Part 2.

Step 1. Start Mailing Cid, and on his 5th mail, he'll need a ex-terminator.

Step 2. Go fight the "monster in the basement".


Lv- 42

HP- 10060

EXP- 10200

Gill- 3200

It all depends on your Level. If your 50+, Earthquake will be cake and do less

then 500. If your below 50, around 40-45 or lower, it'll do 1000+.

He attacks twice per turn, but he's nothing much really.

OMFG! He drops Orichlium! You know what that means. Lets usher over to hand

Madam Smith her Orichlium we promised.

But first, make sure you've opened the Door to Eureka in the Crystal Tower.

Or else you can't meet her at the next area I'm about to explain.

Go Southwest of Saronia, and using the Invincible, climb over the mountins

and towards... Falbagard! The town of Dark Knights.

In Falbagard, you'll find the smith near the weapon shop. Hand over the

rare metal, and as promised, we get a rare weapon indeed!

The Ultima Weapon, is the best non-mastery item there is.

And it surpasses a number of them too!

She will now wander the world and can be found in these places-

Ur- Well

Sasoon Castle- East Tower's Third Floor

Healing Corpse- West of Gyshal. Very short distance.

Village of Ancients- Inn

Gyshal- Pen for the Chocobos

Replito- A northern house.

Dwarven Hollows- Lake area.

Saronia Castle- Basement

Doga's Village- Central Island

Ancient Ruins- Inn

IV. Mastery and Cards


When you get a character to Job Level 99, it's all, right? WRONG.

For working SOOOOO hard, the master smith will award you with something.

If you say, get a Dragoon to Job Level 99, and have obtained the Ultima

already and have sent the smith packing and travelling and happen to meet

her on her travels, she'll fashion for you a weapon capable of use ONLY

by a Dragoon Classed character. Every class has a item of it's own, whether

it be a weapon, helm, gauntlet, or an armor. Not only will you receive a 

one-of-a-kind weapon, with godly stats and powers, but you'll receive a 

highly collectible and rare trading card for that job! It's more of a stamp

really. It allows you to sign a Mognet Mail with it, allowing the person

who receives it to claim ONLY the weapon from the smith. This is useful,

and can be traded and used to make the game easier early on or before the

final boss without much hussel.

Q: Why won't I get the item?!

A: Did you already get it via Card from Mail? You can only get a item once.

Q: She won't appear... what am I doing wrong?!

A: Dunno, go re-read, or if she won't appear, go between the Copse and Gyshal.

   Park your craft and go between the sites. Easiest way to stalk her.

   Just like plaing Pokemon.

Q: Other people's FC's are always grey! Whats up with that?!

A: Try Moghousing first, then trying to send to them.
