As I recall, the Canopic Jar does not cause Arcana to replace any other loot, it just adds an additional drop "slot" in which Arcana can drop. I don't recall exactly, but its something like this:

You kill a wolf, and 3 drop slots are activated. Each of those slots can drop a piece of loot in that mobs drop table, a piece of gear in that mobs drop table, or nothing. Thus when you kill that wolf, you may get 3 loot bags, or none. With the Canopic Jar, that wolf now has a 4th loot slot, in which Arcana is the only possible drop. So you may still get 0-3 bags of normal loot, and 0-1 Arcana upon each kill.

After reading the guides, I've found they have a lot of filler text that I don't need when I ask this simple question:

Which monsters drop what I need to get the Tournesol Loot, and where are they? I know I need to sell loot to get the loot I need for Tournesol, I just need to know where to get the basic pieces. Thanks to any and all who reply.

This may answer your question:


As for why there's "filler text", as the wiki illustrates, it's a long process to unlock the Tournesol.
A design choice you do not understand about a game is not a glitch.

Hoping for some help with the International Zodiac Job System English patch... I'm new to the whole thing and am a bit lost.

So I want to play it on my PS2. I have the American Ff12. Will be getting the ZIJS version soon. I will get swap magic so I can play it...but how does patching it work? I've got the zip file everyone raves about. Do I need to be working from a burned disc at the end or is the patch only for emulators being played on PC? If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it.

Hi everyone! One quick question: When will I get my first 2H Sword?

Depending on how you're playing, there are three 2H swords available to you as soon as you've obtained Belias and escaped from Shiva (before visiting Jahara):

1. Claymore is a rare poach from rare game monster Spee in The Salikawood, which you can access through Dalmasca Estersand -> Mosphorian Highwaste.
2. Save the Queen is available through Bazaar, but it requires killing very high level monsters to obtain 10 Holy Crystals.
3. Defender is available as a rare drop from Leynir in the Nabreus Deadlands (a high level area which can be accessed through The Salikawood) or in a treasure chest in the Necrohol of Nabudis (another high level area which can be accessed through The Salikawood as well).
