  3. Ultimate "What can I miss?" Guide
LordScimitar 14 years ago#1
This is not a walkthrough. This is not a complete guide. I've just tried to gather all important missions into one list. This list is more of a reference. A "If I do this battle and forget something, am I going to miss something permanently?" I gave credit to both guides I took them from and I hope I haven't forgotten anything.

Before we begin, there is just one thing I'd like to note. In order to get all the best items and the best team, its recommended you get the Cinquedea very early. The way to do this is described in the Sticky Topic and will not be covered here.

Part 1: Character Recruiting relationed Missions
ispatch: Caravan Guard (#168)-Do not complete until you have gained the secret char Eldena (vierra Red Mage). Doing this mission causes you to lose Elda's Cup. Have Elda's Cup as mission item for other missions before doing this one.

Tubola Caves: Missing Professor (#063)-SAVE BEFORE MISSION. Quinn joins during this mission. If Quin does not offer to join, reset and start again.

Delia Dunes: A Dragon's Aid (#066)-Do not complete until you have gained the secret char Pallanza (Bangaa Gladiator). Doing this mission causes you to lose Wyrmstone. Have Wyrmstone as mission item for other missions before doing this one.

Other: Use the mission item "Hero Gaol" (obtained on mission "Oasis Frogs" #062) on missions to get the secret char Lini (Moogle Mog Knight)


Other: Use the mission item Snake Shield" (obtained on mission "Hundred-Eye" #165) on missions to get the secret char Cheney (Human Hunter)

Other: The mission "Clan League" #043E allows you to randomly recruit Littlevilli (Vierra Sniper). Mission is re-occurring so if missed on first try a reset is only optional.

Koringwood: Reconciliation (#---)Complete, then do mission "Bored". Ezel offers to join after this mission. He cannot gain any more abilities, so its recommended to let him join at high levels so as to not bother leveling him. DO NOT COMPLETE AT THE SAME TIME AS LEFT BEHIND OR A MAIDEN'S CRY. POSSIBLE BUG

Lutia Pass: Mortal Snow (#---)-Ritz (Human (but really Vierra) Fencer) offers to join after this mission. DO NOT COMPLETE AT THE SAME TIME AS LEFT BEHIND OR A MAIDEN'S CRY. POSSIBLE BUG

Dispatch: Left Behind (#---)Complete, then do mission "Babus". Then, do mission "Doned Here". After completing all these, Babus offers to join after this mission. He cannot gain any more abilities, so its recommended to let him join at high levels so as to not bother leveling him. WARNING: DO NOT COMPLETE AT THE SAME TIME AS LEFT BEHIND OR A MAIDEN'S CRY. POSSIBLE BUG. DO NOT MOVE AROUND ON MAP AFTER COMPLETEING A MAIDEN'S CRY OR LEFT BEHIND BEFORE SIGNING UP FOR "WITH BABUS". POSSIBLE BUG

Dispatch: A Maiden's Cry (#---)-There are 2 missions called "A Maiden's Cry". Complete both and Shara (Vierra Sniper) offers to join clan. WARNING: DO NOT COMPLETE AT THE SAME TIME AS LEFT BEHIND. POSSIBLE BUG.

After all 300 numbered missions are complete, "Cleanup Time" shows up as a mission. After completing, Cid (Judgemaster) offers to join. He cannot learn any new skills so its recommended to get him at a high level so as to not have to level him up much.

#106-Resistance. Negotiate. If you do, you'll obtain an R4 Anti-law. Otherwise, you'll only receive an R3 Anti-law.
##087-Free Bervenia!"-Bug in place that if you fail this mission, you may never get a chance to repeat it.

While playing my GBA at the hospital today, I realized something. I didn't have the map printed or the guide as to where places should go. Soonish, I'm going to add what missions trigger what map placements. No more than that-there's a whole guide as to what goes where for what equipment, and I suggest you print out the map on one side, and on the other, the directions for what goes where for the map you want to use.

Thank you much!
I swear, every FF game should come with something like this packed in...
