My Rules -

1) Only Cloud, duh (Some exceptions thanks to story)

2) No Attacking

3) No Limit Breaks

4) Only use Items, Gear and Materia I find. Can't buy anything (Some exceptions thanks to story)

5) No Inns

Currently I'm about to face Reno for the first time, and he's always my first wall thanks to Pyramid and having to kill off Barret before I can even do anything with Cloud.

So I need some advice here, what can I do to kill off Reno quickly? I thought the Gravi Balls would help, but they do Zero, lol

Tag, I'd love to follow this.

As far as Reno... I dunno. You made me curious enough to check a few guides for an answer, but every single solo Reno strat says use Meteorain, but if youre not using Limits... I have no idea.

I wish I could be of more help, but I'll follow this in hopes that someone more knowledgable has an answer.

How does that make you feel?

Thanks

Yeah, I'll keep this updated as much as I can. I have a 4 day weekend. I might go out tomorrow night, but we'll see.

BTW, here is my Cloud after the Alps boss -

And my Inventory -

Another issue I have to be safe about is Steal/Mug. I can't Mug since it's an attack, but there are Items I'm going to watch to Steal. I think it will be okay if I'm safe with the JP (Or is it AP? I'm a FFT fanatic, lol) so long as I just put it on when I really need it like stealing from a Boss or something

How about a paired "steal as well" materia?

It’s grindy, but you could steal enough Ethers in the train graveyard (then remove Steal to avoid unnecessary AP) that you can continue to heal using Restore, then Level Up enough that you can kill him with a couple of powered up Fire/Ice/Lightning spells. Will take a while, but I don’t really see any other options given your restrictions.

Dunno if you have one or if it’d help, but there’s a spider web item that casts slow you could have won from those weird enemies in the subway that use silk repeatedly.

You already closed your other topic about materia locations question. I was wondering if you planned to buy Chocobo lure or just run across the swamp
Instead of doing things twice, take twice as long the first time

He’s going to cast Pyramid in Cloud sooner rather than later and that’s 100% death since Cloud is solo. You need to pretty much one-shot him, but you have to let Barrett die first. It’s a pain in the ass with Metorain, let alone without it.

I’ll buy that, but I can make it across the swamp without one. Getting Apocalypse early would be nice, lol

Pyramid is weak against Gravity, causing Death on it. So if you're able to steal any items that use Gravity before then, it's possible to time it right when you use a gravity item on yourself but the Pyramid gets cast first. It would be difficult to time it right, but not impossible. Just spitballing here.

Graviballs are dropped by Deenglow in the Train Graveyard, no need to worry about AP on your Steal.

Someone already mentioned spider webs. Reno is vulnerable to Slow, Stop, Sleep, and Poison. Just to give you a couple ideas.

Also, when you say no attacks. Do you mean no physical attacks? If not, how do you kill enemies?

Oh wait, it's Game Over when all characters have Pyramid right? Never mind then. Carry on.
