Halfway through my playthrough (on Steam) I found a random post mentioning that you only get one limit break on Steam. Oh well, I figured, no big deal. Except once I started thinking about statmaxing I had a hard time finding a decent statmaxing guide, as most of them employ two Limit Breaks. I also wanted to avoid using augments I may want to have equipped on certain characters as part of the statmaxing. So I decided to math it out a bit. I'll link to the google sheet I used below just to make life easier for those who want to delve into it, but this is what it boils down to;

Rydia: Whirlwind, Inferno, Counter - 16x Curse and 8x Eye Gouge (any +1 spd works), 5 spare levels
Rosa: Whirlwind, Inferno, Tsunami - 19x Omnicasting and 9x Aim (any +1 spd works), 1 spare level
Kain: Limit Break, Tsunami, Phoenix x16 + Recall x15, Inferno x16 + Bluff x15, 0 spare levels
Edge: Whirlwind, Curse, Tsunami - x17 Bless and x6 Ninjutsu, 6 spare levels
Cecil: ????'s Love, Omnicasting, Bardsong, Analyze x5 - 24 spare levels

So my basic question is this. Am I missing something, or making a mistake somewhere? Link to a google sheet displaying the above in a more easy to read manner: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MdvyFDAXjxelT1NmJwkUDdVsLArqj-it_BZZRepQb2M/edit?usp=sharing

Thanks for taking the time.

I made stat-maxing guides for the iOS and any other versions that only get 1 Limit Break, if you want to try using any of those since you aren't at the end of your first playthrough yet it seems.

**NEAR-Stat-maxing Guide for Limit Break AND ?????'s Love on Cecil (Adamant Armor allows stats to be maxed when worn, though they aren't off by enough that it will make a huge difference without AA's):
https://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/939425-final-fantasy-iv/65288747

I'm too long out of the game to remember or research the math on all this again, so I can't really verify your math on that. I just know what guides I made will work no matter what.

Already put my ????'s love on Cecil so I kinda have to work around that premise, and since I'll want to be using Cursed Rings sometimes I want stats maxed without Adamant Armor (as they should offset each other, statwise).

That's the logic I've been working around anyway.

Thanks for your links though, I'll look through them and see if they give me any ideas.

Cursed Ring's 15-point stat drop to all stats is applied after AA's 15 point boost to them all, so with it on, all your stats will actually cap at 84 regardless of how high they are without AA.
