This copyright belongs to us and may not reproduced in any way without consent of us. This is freely distributed as long as the copyright remains. You may use this Strategy Guide or parts of it, but give us where it is due. This is my Final Fantasy Anthology Strategy Guide. The English Final Fantasy Anthology includes the timeless classics Final Fantasy 5 and Final Fantasy 6. This guide will hence have huge strategy guides for both games. I have separated the games in the guide entirely, Final Fantasy 5 being covered first. Final Fantasy Anthology was released in North America on October 5, 1999. The game carries a retail price of $39.99. Final Fantasy Anthology is simply Final Fantasy 5 and Final Fantasy 6 together in the same package, including a soundtrack with various songs from both games. Also, both FF5 and FF6 feature new full motion video scenes. This guide is two seperately made strategy guides. I (Exdeath) made the Final Fantasy 5 strategy guide, and King Kung (Joseph Parise) has made the Final Fantasy 6 one. King Kung and I have put together this guide as a tribute to Dr Gamewiz. If you don't know who that is, Dr Gamewiz was the leader of the Gamewiz forum on AOL a few years ago. Dr Gamewiz ran a great forum with a great trivia game every week. Dr Gamewiz was a great friend to us both, and encouraged us to write FAQs to our full potential. A few years back, AOL contacted Dr Gamewiz that they were shutting the Gamewiz Forum down. Everyone associated with Gamewiz was mad at AOL for doing this. Dr Gamewiz strove to continue his dream of having an active online community dedicated to gaming by sending out his daily newsletter on video gaming to the past members. Dr Gamewiz continued to be his friendly self, and he didn't give up on his dream. The online community that was Gamewiz continued to be friends and help each other in games. Dr Gamewiz continued to send out his newsletters for over 2 years after he was shut down from AOL. A few months ago, Dr Gamewiz's son came online to tell most of the Gamewiz regulars some terrible news. Dr Gamewiz had gotten a brain tumor, and was given 3 to 6 months to live. This devestated the Gamewiz regulars. On Tuesday, September 28, 1999, Dr Gamewiz died. Dr Gamewiz's son, James, bore the hard news to the Gamewiz community. This greatly disturbed the Gamewiz community. King Kung and I feel that making this FAQ as a tribute is the least we can do for Doc. Dr Gamewiz had a dream, and even after AOL shut him down, he continued to live on the dream, and he united a very special group of people together. Dr Gamewiz was a legend, and this is his tribute. o ________ ________ | \__ __ \ \__ __ \ __| |__ | | \| ___ __ _ ___ __ | | \| ___ __ _ | | ___ _ _ _ _ | | \ / | \| | / _ \ | | | | / _ \ | \| | | | / _ \ / _| \ \/ / | |_/| | | | \ | / /_\ \ | | | |_/| / /_\ \ | \ | | | / /_\ \ | | \ / | _ | | | | | | | _ | | | | _ | | _ | | | | | | _ | \ \ | | | | \| | | | |\ | | | | | | |_ | | \| | | | | | |\ | | | | | | | _\ \ | | | | /_\ \ / \/ /_\ /_\ |___| | | /_\ /_\ \ / \/ | | /_\ /_\ |___| /_\ | | ______ | | | | | | | ____| | | | / | / | |__ | / |/ |/ |___ \ |/ \ \ ____| | |______/ *Note: I wrote this guide for Final Fantasy 5 long before the game was translated and hit North America. Because of this, many of my translations will be different, and there will still be a lot of romanized Japanese. As I update this FAQ, I will go through it and make changes to suit the North American game in Final Fantasy Anthology. *Note 2: I realize my level recommendations might seem a little high, especially during the first part of the game, but if you're pretty high in levels at the end of World 1, the game goes by pretty smooth. *Note 3: For my Final Fantasy Anthology version of my strategy guide, I'm trying to make all of the names according to the English translated version of the game. This means that I will be changing from "Butz" to "Bartz", and so on. -------------- Version Info: -------------- -Version 1.0 6/14/98 *My FF5 Strategy Guide combined with King Kung's FF6 FAQ *Former "Final Fantasy 5 FAQ" joined together *Made name corrections to suit North American Version *ComplEthery translated all abilities to suit North American Version *Edited name translations, spell translations, general trasitions to suit the North American version in Final Fantasy Anthology -Coming in next version: *Complete weapons table *Complete armor table *Complete magic tables *Enemy list ---------- Contents: ---------- Walkthrough -World 1 -World 2 -World 3 Complete Ability List Playing FF5 on a SNES Battle Options Menu Options Job System Best Weapons Blue Magic Chart Game Genie Codes *GameShark Codes *Note: As I find Game Shark codes for Final Fantasy 5, I will add them to the FAQ. --------- World 1: --------- 1.

The Wind Stops (Level: 1) Treasures: Phoenix Down You start out by seeing the King of Tycoon Castle leaving Reina in charge. Reina is the princess of Tycoon Castle, and the King has left because he is worried that the win has stopped. Then, it cuts to the pirates, and Faris, the leader of the pirates. Then you see Galuf, riding the meteor to this world. The meteor crashes into this world and you will gain control of Butz. He will tell Boko, his Chocobo, to stay behind. Go up and around and fight the two goblins that are trying to take Reina away. Kill them and meet her, then go upward to meet Galuf. Galuf and Reina leave for the Wind Crystal Shrine. Now, go to the lower right edge of the screen. If you head through some trees, you can find a hidden path that leads to a Phoenix Down. 2. The Pirates Treasures: Leather Cap (Kawa no Boushi) Walk Butz out of the meteorite site and north of where he started, eventually, Boko will crash into the wall. You will have to fight a few goblins several times until you get Reina and Galuf to join your party. They find out the road to Tule is down, and they need to get a ship somehow. Go into the cave to the Pirate ship and gain a few levels by the pool that fills your HP and MP up. Go up and through the winding cave, collecting the treasures as you go. Push the switch that the pirate did to go into the cave. Go across the bridge to the ship and press the "A" button the wheel of the ship. You will meet Faris here. After explaining why you were trying to take the ship, Faris will join you and leave for the Wind Crystal Shrine. The pirate will ask you if you know the way to the Wind Crystal Shrine, pick the top answer (Yes) if you do, and pick the bottom one, (No), if you don't. If you pick "No", the pirate will drive you over to where the Wind Crystal Shrine is. Don't go into it just yet, though. Blue Magic: Red Feast - The Steel Bats here sometimes will cast this on a party member. Come back here later after you get Blue Mage class and get hit by it to receive it as a blue spell. 3. Town of Tule (Level: 4) Treasures: 100 GP, Potion x 2, Ether, Fenix Down x 2, Tent x 2, 150 GP, Leather Shoes (Kawa no Kutsu) If you don't have Level 4 yet, I suggest that you walk around outside of the town awhile until you get to that point. Go inside the town, Faris will head inside the Pub and drink for awhile. Go into the various shops, buy anything that you need and make sure to buy the magic. Also, if you're new to this game, you may want to visit the House of Beginners. 4. Wind Crystal Shrine (Level: 5) Treasures: Tent, Broad Sword, Tsue (Staff/Cane), Leather Cap (Kawa no Boushi) This dungeon is not difficult at all if you are level 5. When you first enter, go off to the left and get some info on King Tycoon and get a few free potions and fill up your HP/MP. Keep going up a few floors, gaining each treasure you come across, until you fight Wingrapter. ************************************************************************ Boss of the Wind Crystal Shrine: Wingrapter. HP: 250 How to defeat: Only attack it while it's wings are open. Attacking when it's wings are closed will make it counter- attack with Tsume (Iron Nail). An easy way to beat it is to get Bload sword for all members and just keep attacking it until it dies. ************************************************************************ After you beat the Wingrapter, the Wind Crystal will break. You will find out that the crystals have chosen you to accept their power. You get your first jobs. The jobs are: Knight, Monk, Thief, White Mage (ShiroMadoushi), Black Mage (KuroMadoushi), and Blue Mage (AoMadoushi). You'll want to walk outside of the Wind Crystal Shrine and fight a bit with your new classes. Right now I recommend Butz as Knight, Reina as Black or White Mage (Kuro or Shiro Madoushi), Galuf as Monk, and Faris as Blue Mage or Thief. Doing this will give you good abilities with magic and attack. Also, if you are really strong, go a little bit south of the Wind Crystal Shrine and to the right on the strip of land, fighting the Lion-like enemies gets you a lot of ABP, fighting three of them at a time will get you 3 ABP a battle. 6. Back to Tule and on to the Canal (Level: 7) Go back to Tule using the ship, and go to the northern house in the city, this is Zokku's house. After your party spends the night here, you will get the "Unga no Kagi" (Canal Key). Leave town and go to the canal a little bit south of the Wind Crystal Shrine. Open the door with the key that Zokku gave you. Hydra will leave at the end of this part. *************************************************************************** Boss of Torna Canal: Kalablos. HP: 650 Weakness: Thunder How to defeat: He's pretty easy, all you really need to do is attack. A normal state. Just attack her when she's in normal state. When she becomes undead state, a good way to beat her is to use Cure (Kearuu) on her with White Mages (ShiroMadoushi). ************************************************ 7. Ship Graveyard (Level: 8) Treasures: Tent, 990 GP, Phoenix Down x 2, Flail, Antidote x 2, Potion. Keep following the ships, you should find your way through easily, gain levels as you go through, some of these enemies give you some decent experience. Also, when you first start on the ship, go right, and when you see a board going downard, go down. When you get to the bottom of this oar, turn your character left and press "X". You will uncover a secret path that you can jump across to get the Flail. **Note: I know many people have problems with this stage of the on the SNES emulators because of the various layering effects of emulators. I don't think there is a good way around this, so if you're here on an SNES emulator, it might be a little harder to navigate around. ************************************************ Boss of the Ship Graveyard: How to defeat: Having one or two Monks or Knights helps when she's in normal form. When she's in undead form, a good way of beating her is to use Cure (Kearuu) with White Mages. Just keep attacking when she's in normal form, though. ************************************************ 8. Karwen Village (Level: 10) Treasures: Ice Rod (Kori no Rod), Cottage, Antidote. You will learn about Walz Castle and Hiryuus, flying dragons, in this town. Buy whatever you think you need here, and change your jobs according to what you think is best. Now is a pretty good time to gain some levels outside of the town, if you need to. 9. Northern Mountain (Level: 11) Treasures: Golden Needles (Kin no Hari), Phoenix Down Go through the mountain, collecting treasures as you go, and you'll go through a few forks. You'll eventually fight Forza and Magisa at the middle of the mountain. ************************************************************************ Boss of Northern Mountain: Forza: Level 8, HP: 850 Magisa: Level 8, HP: 650 How to defeat: If you get hit by strong magic, heal by using either a potion or "O Kearu" (Cure) spell. An easy way to defeat them is to make 4 Monks or Knights and just waste Magisa with attacks before she can even call Forza to come to her aid. ************************************************************************ You now have control of the Hiryuu. Fly to Walz town, south of Karwen town. You can also go back to Tycoon Castle to get some good treasures if you want, Tycoon will be accessed by the Hiryuu for as long as you have it. 10. Walz Town (Level: 13) Treasures: Silver Glasses You will learn about the Water Crystal here. Buy the best weapons and armor for every character, and be sure to buy any magic you don't have yet. You may want to gain a few levels outside. After you're done, head to Walz Castle. 11. Walz Castle (Level: 13 or 14) Treasures: Tent, Phoenix Down, 490 GP, Elf Cloak (Elf no Manto), 1000 GP x 2, Speed. Talk to the soldiers and the King of Walz, you will see the second meteorite crash into the earth. Go with the King to where the meteorite crashed, which is a little northwest of Walz Castle. Don't go into the basement of Walz Castle right now, it is very dangerous, but you'll come back later. 12. Walz Tower (Level: 14) Treasures: Maiden's Kiss (Otome no Kissu), Ether, Silver Armband, Siruku no Robe (Silk Robe). Keep heading up the tower, and talk to King Walz, who is on the ground. Proceed up the tower, getting the treasures by climbing the vines. You will eventually get some Crystal Chips, and you must then fight Galura, the boss of Walz Tower. ************************************************************************ Boss of Walz Tower: Galura Level 3, HP: 1200 How to defeat: An easy way of defeating Galura is to just use "Kaeru no Uta" (Frog Song) on him, so he becomes very weak. He mainly uses physical attacks, so just keep hitting him with Monks and Knights. ************************************************************************ After this battle, you gain the following jobs: TokiMadoushi (Time Mage), Mahoukenshi (Magic Knight), Shoukanshi (Summoner), Baasaakaa (Berserker), and AkaMadoushi (Red Mage). Now is a good time to get the treasures in Tycoon castle if you haven't done so already, you may want to try out your new jobs and gain a few levels. 13. Tycoon Castle (Level: 15) Treasures: Maiden's Kiss (Otome no Kissu), ERikkser x 2, Ether x 2, Phoenix Down x2, Giyama no Kane (Giyama's Bell), Shuriken, Ashura, Healing Rod (Iyashi no Tsue), Cottage x 3, Hi-Potion. Just grab all the treasures you can. Some are a little hidden, but I'll let you figure out how to get them. Go back to Walz Castle and talk to King Walz, he'll tell you information about Karnak. 14. Walz Meteor (Level: 15) Go to the meteorite, there is a hole in it. Go through the small passage in the meteor, and you'll eventually find a warp that brings you to the meteor close Karnak. Walk northwest, and then south. Go to Karnak Town. 15. Karnak Town and Cid (Level: 15) Go to the weapon or armor shop and try to buy something, you will get caught and brought to the Karnak Castle prison. You will meet Cid in the next jail, as he is trying to escape. He'll ask you to help him by stopping the Fire Crystal from breaking. After you talk to Cid, you will be let out of the castle. Buy the best magic, weapons, and armor from the shops here, and talk to the people of Karnak. After you bought Fire 2 (Faira), go back to the Castle of Walz and go behind the castle and to the back waterfall. Keep going until you fight Shiva, use Faira 2 on her, and she should be easy. Now you have your first level 2 summon, Shiva. Now is a great time to gain levels around Karnak. When you're ready, go to the ship beneath Karnak Castle. Cid will be waiting for you here, and he'll ask if you'll help him. He'll lead you down to the fire-powered ship. 16. The Fire-Powered Ship (Level: 17) *Blue Magic: Flash - When you fight a battle with Cold Dust enemies in it, kill all enemies but a single Cold Dust and he will cast it on all party members. Exploder - Randomly after battles in the fire-powered ship, you will be attacked by a group of two MottleTraps. If you use Bolt (Sandaa) magic on one, it will use Exploder on one of your characters. Keep going through the ship, there are various ways with different treasures. The elevators will switch your levels for you, and there are single treasures in many rooms. When you see a room with four openings, take the one all the way to the right to get the Green Beret. After you got it, you'll end up back at the same four choices room. Take the second opening on the right to eventually get the Thief Glove. You'll return again to the four choices area. Take the second opening to the left, and you'll proceed. When you fall down, take the left door, and you can save. After the save point, you'll find an interesting puzzle that you'll need to complete in order to pass. I'll give the solution to the puzzle, don't read it if you want to try it on your own first. Solution: Click the first switch you can possibly click. Get off that platform and click the switch all the way to the left. Click the switch in the upper-left, and run across the room and click both switches on the other side. Walk downward and click the higher switch while you're standing to the right of it. Click the last switch, and you'll be brought to a place by an ERikkser. Grab it and proceed to the boss. ************************************************************************ Boss of the Fire-Powered Ship: Liquid Flame. Level 19, HP: 3000. Attribute: Fire and Wind. Weakness: Ice How to defeat: You'll need to heal after you get hit by his Fire Magic. Ice (Bulizado) magic series is very effective on him, but don't use magic while it's in the form of a hand. Only attack it with strong attacks when it's in the hand form. ************************************************************************ 17. Escape from Karnak! (Level: 19) Treasures: 2000 GP x 2, ERikkser x 6, Elf Cloak (Elf no Manto), HuntingKnife, Shuriken, Ribbon, Esna (White Spell) After you leave the crystal room from the whole, you'll have 10 minutes to escape from Karnak Castle. It's really important that you have one of your characters be a Thief and have the "Dash" skill, because you don't want to waste any time at all. Be sure to save at the save point. Run up the staircase, and get the two treasure chests that you see quickly. Go to upper-right staircase. It's a good idea to run from every enemies that you run into except for the enemies in the treasure chests, since they give you things after defeating them. Get the treasures on the left and the right of the room. In these treasure chests, you will fight enemies. The Gigas enemies cast the Blue Magic spells "Aero" and "Aero 2", so it's a good idea to learn them now. Go to the central door. Run around and go through the door at the bottom. Go through the next floor quickly, there is no treasure here. When you get to the room with the carpet, go to the upper-right staircase. Run to lower exit and get the treasure box, fight and kill the enemy. Run along the left and right castle walls, and in one of them, you will get the Elf Cloak (Elf no Manto).Return to the room you left from, and get every treasure chest you see. Run down the central staircase and you'll end up in the carpeted room. Go down and get the treasures on the left and right sides, and fight the enemies. Go down and fight the Sergeant. ************************************************************************ Boss of Karnak Castle: Sergeant How to defeat: When you get hit with the Death Claw Blue Magic spell, one of your characters will have only a few hit points. Make sure to heal this character quickly. Normal attacks work just fine for defeating him, and Monks are the most effective. *Note: Make sure to learn the Blue Magic spell "Death Claw" here, it's one of the most important Blue Magic spells in the game, and it should be useful throughout. ************************************************************************ Try to gain a few levels afterward. If you can get to level 25 going past Karnak, the rest of World 1 will be pretty easy. 18. The Ancient Library (Level: 23) The wall that was blocking your way to the west is now gone, so you can follow the path west. There's a good opportunity to gain a good Blue Magic spell on the way to the Ancient Library. Gaining Aqua Rake: Before reaching the desert following the western passage, be sure to save your game. Once saved, enter the desert. I recommend changing all of your characters to Monks here. Make sure at least one of the Monks knows the Blue Magic ability "Learn Blue Magic" Enter the desert, and you will fight the Durumu Kimaira (Chivera). He will probably cast a deadly Blue spell, "Aqualung". Once he has cast it, keep hitting hit with everything you've got. Use Store Power or plain attacks with the Monks. After killing him, you will get the Blue Magic spell "Aqua Rake". When you get to the Ancient Library, save your game and use a Tent. When you enter the Ancient Library, go to the main hall and talk to the scholars. You will learn about Mid, Cid's grandson, and about the Ancient Library. Go to the basement of the library from the left door under the bridge when you entered the library. There is a great Blue Magic spell, "Level 5 Death" that can be gained here from Page 64 enemies. Gaining Level 5 Doom: To get this Blue Magic spell, you must first make sure that at least one member of your party is a level multiple of 5, but one or more members cannot be a level multiple of 5, or all of your guys will die in the process. A few of the books in the library have the enemy "Page 64", and when you meet him, he will more than likely cast "Level 5 Doom". You'll need a Blue Mage or the skill "Learn Blue Magic" to get it, of course. After he casts it, just win the battle, and you've got a new piece of Blue Magic. :) After you've gotten Level 5 Doom, proceed through the library, going into various dead ends and pushing the switches to open up new areas. Going farther into the library, you will meet Ifrit, the Fire Elemental. ************************************************************************* Boss 1 of Ancient Library: Ifrit. Level 22, HP: 3000 Attribute: Fire Weakness: Ice This battle shouldn't be hard at all. Casting Shiva with a Summoner is very effective, and when you have more than 1 Summoner, it's even more effective. :) Black Mage's Bulizara magics work very well, too. After you've beaten Ifrit, the Summoner can cast the Ifrit Summon. If you can't beat him normally, just make 4 Summoners and keep pelting him with Shiva summon. ************************************************************************* When you get Ifrit, a bookshelf that wouldn't let you pass before now will. Proceed through the library, and at the bottom, you'll fight Biblos. ************************************************************************* Boss 2 of Ancient Library: Biblos. Level 24, HP: 3600 Weakness: Fire Try your most powerful Faira (Fire) magics on him. Ifrit works well. Attacking Monks also help. A good way to beat him is using "Death Claw" Blue Magic (Ao Mahou) spell. He shouldn't be too hard, but he is harder than Ifrit. *Note: If you're trying to get all of the Blue Magic in the game, let Biblos use "MagHammer" on you. ************************************************************************* After you beat Biblos, you will find Mid searching in some books. Walk up behind him and talk to him. He will be surprised that someone found him down there, and he will lead you out of the dungeon area of the Anicent Library using a secret path. The other scholars are happy when they find out that you saved Mid. Mid says he plans to find Cid to give him some special plans of some kind. 19. To Karnak and back (Level: 24) Leave for Karnak to try to catch Mid and Cid. Talk to Cid in the pub. You'll get access to the Fire-powered ship. When you go back to the Ancient Library again, the scholars will say new things. They'll inform you of Jachol. 20. Jachol (Level: 24) This town is located on the peninsula in the south-western part of the world. Buy new items and weapons, and learn of your next destination, the Dungeon of Jachol. Treasures in the Dungeon of Jachol: Tent, Shuriken, Dengeki Muchi (Lightning Whip). When you enter, press the switch on the left. This enables you to move around. There are a series of switches on the walls. After the switches blink for awhile, a 'true' switch will be revealed. Hit this switch to proceed. In the treasure chest at the end, there is a hidden switch. Hit it to reveal a new door. There really isn't anything you need to do here, but you'll come back later. The wall in the back can be climbed, but don't do it yet. 21. Cresent Island (Level: 25) When you first go into Cresent town, your ship will sink (Doh!). The village folks speak of the Kuro Chocobo (Black Chocobo). There is an additional song you can get here, "Tairyoku no Uta" (Health Song). You may also learn "Death Sickle" Blue Magic spell here by fighting enemies outside of the town. After you've done everything you need to do in the town, go into the Chocobo Forest (southwest of Cresent town). When you get in, catch a Black Chocobo by pressing 'A'. You will gain two additional classes here. They are: Ginyuu Shijin (Bard), Karyuudo (Archer/Hunter). After you get your new classes and KuroChocobo, head north of the Wind Crystal Shrine, and you'll arrive at Butz's hometown, Rikks. 22. From Rikks to Easterly (Level: 26) There really isn't much to do in Rikks. But, there is a new song that you can learn. Go into Butz's house and get "Yuuwaku no Uta" (Song of Temptation). After you've packed up, head to Easterly. It's northwest of the entire world map. When you're in the city, stock up on weapons and armor, and whatever else you think you need. You can get the Black Magic "Toad" by walking on the square flower garden to the west part of the town. If you go into the sheep's pen, talk to one of the sheep, and it'll kick you over the fence. Once you're over the fence, talk to the nearby Bard and get the Song: "Ai no Uta" (Song of Love). Outside and around Easterly are very good places to gain levels at this point of the game. It may be wise to stop awhile and fight. You can get Ramuh summon spell here. Go to the forest slightly to the east, and keep fighting until he fights you. He shouldn't be hard at all. ************************************************************************* Boss of Easterly Forest: Ramuh. Level: 21, HP: 4000 Atrribute: Thunder Death Claw works incredibly well in this battle. Use that right away if you have it. If you don't have it, use Monks or Knights to beat him out physically. It shouldn't be too hard, considering your levels. ************************************************************************* After you've beaten Ramuh, a new item named "Ramuh" will end up in your inventory. Use the item to get the new Summon spell, Ramuh. This is a really great place to stop to gain levels. Most battles yield 2 or 3 ABP, which is pretty good, considering what you've been through so far. It's a good idea to master Magic classes with Reina and Butz, and Physical classes for Galuf and Faris, for now. 23. The Ancient Library and Quicksand Desrt. (Level: 28) Tlak to Cid and Mid, and you will learn about King Tycoon. Exit the library, and go west past the mountain range, and into the desert. When you enter the desert, the sand worm will attack you. When you get their, you're asked if you're ready to go in or not. Select 'yes' if you're ready to fight it. ************************************************************************* Boss of the Quicksand Desert: Sand Worm. Level 18, HP: 300 Weakness: Water. Aqua Breath is incredibly useful for this battle. Just one use of this Ao Mahou spell should kill it. If you cast magic on the little holes, they'll revenge with "Ryuusa". "Stop" is a pretty good spell as well. Use anything from the Water magic class. ************************************************************************* 24. Gosh and Ronka (Level: 28) It's not very hard to navigate through the quicksand to get out of the desert, just keep trying until you get to the right path. When you get to the southern exit, walk south. Enter the village and you'll see King Tycoon (?). Keep going to where he leaves to, and he will appear and reappear. If you found him, he'll eventually take to the center staircase. Follow him there. When you get their, you'll fall through a pitfall. Go through the door at the end. When you get to the room with the beds, go to the right table in the right room and read the paper on the table. If you follow the instructions written on the paper, you'll get 2 Shurikens and a "Minimum". *Solution to puzzle: Go to the button on the lower-left wall, press "A". Say 'no' to the first question, and 'yes' to the second question. This should reveal your treasure. When you get the airship here, you'll get attacked on it by ClayClaw. ************************************************************************* Boss on the Airship (Once you get it): ClayClaw Level 43, HP: 2000 Weakness: Thunder Mahouken Sandara will work well. He'll use a special ability on you called TailScrew. This is a devestating attack, but it shouldn't be too hard to help it with healing magic spells. Also, if you're really low on HP, it might be a good idea for a AoMadoushi (Blue Mage) to cast "????", which does greater HP damage when your HPs are low. Also, "Raijin no Jutsu" can be thrown at him to do some huge damage. It's a good idea to steal a "Sango no Ken" (Coral Sword) from him, as this is the best sword for a Knight at this point in the game. ************************************************************************* When you beat ClayClaw, go to the town of Gohn. The Ronka Ruin will rise. Return to the Catapult (Where your Airship is launched out of, under the sea, near crescent island). 25. The Meteorites (Level: 30) When you return to the Catapult, Cid will ask for you to obtain some Adamantite, so your airship can fly higher and meet up with the Ronka Ruin. Go to the Meteor near Tycoon (You were here at the very start of the game). When you go inside the Meteor, a boss is guarding it. ************************************************************************* Boss of the Tycoon Meteorite: Adamantaimai Level 20, HP: 2000 Weakness: Ice (Buluzado) This is a very humorous battle, if you know how to win it right. Just use "Level 5 Death" you learned from the Ancient Library, and that will totally destroy him. ^_^ If you don't have Level 5 Death, use "Protetsu" on your characters, then cast high-level Bulizado attacks. ************************************************************************* After you have beaten Adamantaimai, return to the catapult and give the Adamantite to Cid. The airship will now be powered up and you can press "B" while in the air to go up to the Ronka Ruins. 26. The Ronka Ruins (Level: 31) There are 4 cannons around the opening, and you'll have to defeat these cannons first before moving into the interior of the Ronka Ruins. It's easiest to beat these by using the Ramuh summon spell, and they shouldn't be a big problem at all. Once you beat all of the smaller cannons, the middle cannon will open up, and you will have to fight it, as well. If at any time you need to leave this flying area, you can take your airship out of here to sleep at an Inn or buy items. ************************************************************************* Boss of the beginning of Ronka Ruins: Sol Cannon. Level 36 Just use "Level 5 Death", as it will destroy 2 of the 3 launchers. Sandara will work very well on the remaining cannon. This battle should be really easy. ************************************************************************* Treasures in the interior of Ronka Ruins: Gold Armor, Gold Shield, ERikkser, Hi-Potion, 5000 GP, Shuriken, Kodai no Tsurugi, Power Wrist, Engetsurin, Cottage, Ether. It's a REALLY good idea to have a Thief in the party for this area. This allows you to see all of the hidden passages within the area. It shouldn't be too hard, just keep searching for treasures, and moving along, and you will eventually fight ArukeoEibis. ************************************************************************* Boss of the Ronka Ruins: ArukeoEibis. ArukeoEibis has 2 phases: Phase 1 - Level 19, HP: 6400 Phase 2 - Level 20, HP: 2500 This is one of the harder battles in the game, I think. Since Arukeo is fairly strong, and he can change his weakness with "Barrier Change", this will be a tough battle. You can see his weakness by casting the Shirmahou spell "Raibura". Monks are very good for this battle, as well. After he revives, notice his level is multiple of 5, so you know what that means, Level 5 Death time. ^_^ ************************************************************************* Jobs Obtained after beating the Ronka Ruins: Samurai, Ryuukishi (Dragon Knight), Kusurishi (Chemist), Odoriko (Dancer). After the last crystal breaks and gives you those classes, X-Death returns, because the seal is broken. Galuf leaves back to his planet, and you will only have 3 characters in your party. Go to the catapult and read the letter that Mid wrote. He's returning the adamantite to where you found them. Go to Tycoon, to the first Meteorite. There is nothing to do here but just let the meteorite destroy the power in the adamantite. Then, you have to go to the Karnak Meteorite. Here you will fight Titan. ************************************************************************* Boss of Karnak Meteorite: Titan. Level 1, HP: 2500 Attribute: Earth. It shouldn't be too hard to beat him. You'll need at least one person to heal, though, as his attacks can be devastating. He will cast "Earth Shaker" when he dies. After you beat him, you will receive the "Titan" summon spell. ************************************************************************* Next, go to the Walz Meteorite. You'll have to fight PyuroBoros. ************************************************************************* Boss of the Walz Meteorite: PyuroBoros Level 22, HP: 2200 This is one of the simplest battles in the game. All you have to do is have a Samurai on hand and have him do "Zeninage" (Coin Toss). It should die within one throwing of this. Simple enough. :) ************************************************************************* Now go to the meteorite near the Tower of Gone. You have to fight Kimaira Brain. ************************************************************************* Boss of Town of Gone's Meteorite: Kimaira Brain. Level 19, HP: 3300 Do not use any of your Bulizado (Ice) mahou, as it will be absorbed. Make sure someone has "Kearura", because it will cast Blaze, a very powerful spell. Death Claw Blue Magic (AoMahou) is the best strategy here. If you don't have it, use "Gravite" spells, as it has a weakness to it. ************************************************************************* *Note: You are about to leave the first world. You can do whatever you want, but there are a few things I recommend that you do before leaving. 1) Get the Elf no Manto (Elven Cloak) and Speed Magic from the basement of Worus castle if you haven't done so. 2) Gain a few levels. If you're high levels at this part of the game, great. But if you aren't, it might be really wise to gain a few, as there are much harder enemies in the next world. Once you think you are prepared, follow the arrows on the map and head to the warp zone. This is the end of the first world. --------- World 2: --------- 1. The Solitary Island (Level: 32) The first thing you need to do in this world is use a Tent. If you don't have one, you'll have to keep fighting the enemies around this area until you can find one. If you don't find one, tough luck. :) Use a Tent. When you are getting to sleep, Abductor tries to take Faris and Reina. You'll have to fight it with only Butz. ************************************************************************* Boss of Solitary Island: Abductor. Level 22, HP: 1500 Very simple. Just attack, really. It doesn't have very many good attacks, and you can easily nail it out of the sky with just plain attacks. I wish most of the other bosses in the game were this easy. :) If you don't think you're strong enough, just use your Death Claw Blue Magic (AoMahou). ************************************************************************* 2. X-Death's Castle Basement (Level: 32) This is where you have to rescue Butz, Reina, and Faris with Galuf. It's good to have Galuf as either a Monk or Samurai (I normally put him as a Monk, because he inflicts huge damage with it). After a few corridors, you'll find your friend's items. Then you'll have to fight Gilgamesh. (Cool music! ^_^) ************************************************************************* Boss of X-Death Castle: Gilgamesh (Ya' think it'd be X-Death!) Level ??, HP: ?? This is probably also one of the more simpler battles in the game. Just use normal attacks again. He doesn't have a set ammount of HP, but once you inflict a certain ammount of damage, he'll run away. ************************************************************************* After beating Gilgamesh, you escape from X-Death Castle. Once out, you have to go to Big Bridge. There you will have to fight a few enemies, and then Gilgamesh again. ************************************************************************* Boss of Big Bridge: Gilgamesh. Level: ??, HP: ?? Don't just attack him out of the blue, because he'll power up so that he's much stronger (He casts Shell and Protetsu). Cast "mahouken-sairesu" at the very start of the battle, so he can't cast those magics to power up. It shouldn't be too hard after that. ************************************************************************* 3. Rugoru and Koozer (Level: 33) Not much to do here, but buy all of the new mahou and weapons and armor. Also, when you sleep here, Galuf will get up and leave to the Pub. Just walk Butz over to the Pub and talk with Galuf. It's a good idea to gain a few levels outside here, as the enemies are not too hard, yet give good gold and experience. After you think you're ready, head south to the castle of Koozer. When you get here, make sure you save outside. The enemies inside are extremely hard, so run from all of them. You can go to see the 12 legendary weapons here. You will eventually get these weapons later in the game, but not now. 4. Mouguli Forest and Town (Level: 34) Treasures here: 4400 GP, Fenix Down. When you come here, talk to the Moogle and head with him down to the underground river. You have to fight Tirasaurs here. ************************************************************************* Boss of River: Tirasaurs. Level 29, HP: 5000 Weakness: Fire This is an undead monster, so it's very good to use Faira 2 and Kearura (Cure 2) on it. These spells should knock off considerable ammounts of damage, as should the "Gravite" spell. After blasting him with a bunch of spells, and healing here and there, he's dead. ************************************************************************* Wen you get across the Grociana desert and enter the forest, you come to Mouguli village. Try not to wander off into the desert while you get there, because "SandCrawler" will surely kill you. If you wear the Mouguli doll you can get the Elf no Manto here. 5. Val Castle and Quelb (Level: 35) Whats going on here: It turns out that Galuf is actually the king here, which you find surprising. There are a lot of enemies outside the castle that you can fight for experience and gold, but don't exit right away, because you won't be able to get back in. Make your way to Val Castle. There are many things you can get and do at Val Castle. If you walk counter-clockwise around the Val Castle moat, and search the dead end, you can get a Great Sword. There is a Tenshi no Hakui (Angel Robe) behind the back of the armor shop. There's a hidden switch between the weapon and armor shops. The weapon shop clerk will give you the "Ramia no Tategoto (Ramia Harp). *Note: This is one of the best places in the game that you can get ABP fast. In the basement of Val Castle, many Sekizou enemies attack you. These are easily slain by Level 5 Death. It gives you 4 ABP if killed in a group of 2, and 8 ABP if they're killed in a set of 4. It is imperative that you up jobs here, as you will need to master a few to beat the game efficiently. After doing all that you can with level gaining and information, leave the castle and head north, to the town of Quelb. Enter the house in the center of Quelb. This is Kelgar's house. He was one of the 4 Knights of Dawn that Sealed X-Death away. Kelgar will open the door on the north side of town. You can learn the spell "Reqiem" from the wolves in the northeast corner of the town. In the inn, a wolf gives you 8 potions each time you talk to him, and you can possibly get a maximum of 24 potions. Just a little freebie that you can pick up. :) You'll gain more information about the story here, and your next destination is the Valley of Flying Dragons. 7. Valley of the Flying Dragons (Level: 36) Treasures here: Cottage, 5000 GP, Bone Mail, 7000 GP, Kazekiri no Yaiba, Hyupuno Crown, Fenix Down. It is essential that you get the "Golem" summon here. It is fairly easy to get. After awhile, you will eventually get into a fight with Golem, who is being attacked by 2 monsters. If you beat the two other monsters without having Golem die, he gives you his summon spell for helping him. This summon is a really good one, too, since it can protect you from a lot of damage. You will eventually have to fight the next boss, Hiryuu sou. ************************************************************************* Boss of Valley of the Flying Dragons: Hiryuu sou. Level 29, HP: 12000 Your newly accquired summon, Golem, works very well here, as it will block a lot of Hirryu sou's attacks. !$Toss (Zeninage) will work incredibly well on this boss, if you have the money to spare, this is a good idea. Otherwise, use "Gravite" spells and normal attacks. It has a lot of HPs, but it will eventually die. ************************************************************************* 8. Back to Val and Ghido's Dwelling (Level: 37) You just have to give the Hiryuusou to the Hiryuu. It'll revive and you can use it in this world now. Go northeast from Val, and you will reach Ghido's Dwelling. It's really too bad that once you get to, the entire island sinks. :) Not to worry, though...head west to Surgate Castle. 9. Surgate and Zeza's Fleet (Level: 37) You will learn a lot about another of the 4 Knights of Dawn here, Zeza. Make sure you buy the best weapons and armor availabe for your party members, and if you go to the king's bedroom, you can get the "Subayasa no Uta" (Song of Speed). There is a special trick to do here, if you go to the library and arrange the scattered books correctly. From left to right, the books are: "Kindan no Sho", "Mamono Daijiten", and "Ronka no Himitsu". Here is a small picture of what the bookshelves will look like: __1__ __2__ __3__ __4__ __5__ __6__ __7__ __8__ __9__ __10__ __11__ Put "Kindan no Sho" into bookshelf 7. Put "Mamomo Daijiten" into bookshelf 2. Put "Ronka no Himitsu" into bookshelf 9. Once you have put the books in the right shelves, you will be rewarded with the magic "Leviteto". Leave Surgate, and head to Zeza's Fleet (It's east of X-Death's Castle). You meet Zeza, the Knight of Dawn, and you sleep on the ship. When you are sleeping, monsters raid the ship. Ignore the wandering enemies and head straight for Gilgamesh, on the bow of the ship. He'll show up this time with a new posse, Enkidou. :) ************************************************************************* Bosses of Zeza's Fleet: Gilgamesh, Enkidou. Gilgamesh: Level ??, HP: ?? Enkidou: Level 29, HP: 4000 Physical attacks work well on Gilgamesh. Enkidou can be beaten by "Gravite", or by just casting "Confuyu" on him. Just keep hitting Gilgamesh with physical attacks, and Enkidou with magic, and it shouldn't be too hard. *Note: Gilgamesh carries the "Genji no Kote" (Genji Gauntlet). This cannot be found anywhere in the game but here, and is the best Gauntlet in the game, so make sure to steal it here. ************************************************************************* 10. Barrier Tower and Ghido the Sage (Level: 37) Treasures here: 9000 GP, 18000 GP, Blood Sword, Kin no Kamikazari (Gold Hairpin). You start at the very bottom, but keep working up to the top of the tower. It's pretty straightforward, so it shouldn't be too hard going through here. Once you get to the top, you'll have to fight Atomos. ************************************************************************* Boss of Barrier Tower: Atomos. Level 41, HP: 19997 He is a pretty hard enemy, but not too hard to beat if you have the right combination of characters. Get 2 Monks, a Samurai, and a ShiroMadoushi (White Mage) here. Have both of the Monks attack, have the Samurai use "Zeninage", and have the ShiroMadoushi keep healing whoever needs it, as his "Comet" attack is really powerful. "Slow" also works on him.
************************************************************************* After you've beaten the Barrier Tower, you acquire the submarine. Head to Ghido's Dwelling underneath water (It's on the island that sunk, remember?). You'll have to go through a small cave, and when you get to the end, you meet Ghido. He will tell you a lot about X-Death and Muah Forest, and give you more about the storyline of the game. He will also give you the "Chourou no Eda" (Stem of Elderly Tree), and tell you to go to Muah Forest. *Note: Now is a good time to get the summon spell of Katoblepas. Use the submarine, and go undersea. There is a small white dot on the north-western part of the world map. Go to that place by the underwater cave. Go around inside that cave until you fight Katoblepas. After you beat it, it will give you it's spell. ************************************************************************* Katoblepas: Level 38, HP: 5000 It's best just to use physical attacks here. Keep in mind that it can use a "Devil's Eye" spell on you to turn a character into stone. This shouldn't be much of a problem if you have an Odoriko (Dancer) with a Ribbon, though. Physical attacks by Monks and Ninjas work the best. ************************************************************************* 11. Muah Forest and Town (Level: 37) To get to Muah town, just use the submarine and go to the western part of the world. Once there, look around to where Muah town is (it's surrounded by mountains). You can go underwater and come up, and you'll be close Muah town. Enter. You can get the "Main Gauche" here to the left of the Pub. The locked doors to the southwest cannot be opened yet, but you will come back much later in the game. Gather information here, and head to the Great Muah Forest. Treasures in Muah Forest: 2000 GP, Ether, 4500 GP, 9900 GP, Fenix Down, ERikkser, Cottage, Kyojin no Kusura (Medicine of the Giants), Aegis Shield, Flame Tongue, Morning Star, Susu, Flame Shield (If you didn't take the Aegis shield). Use "Chourou no Eda" to enter the great forest. Once there, keep collecting all the treasures here, and fight the enemies. It is a good place to raise levels and ABP. After collecting all the treasures that you can and finding the right way through the forest, X-Death will set fire to it. After you collect the remaining treasure, enter the Mouguli hole. 12. The Elderly Tree. (Level: 38) Use "Chourou no Eda" and the tree will open. Inside, you must fight "Fuuin wo Mamoru Mono" (Guardian of the Seal). ************************************************************************* Boss of the Elderly Tree: Fuuin wo Mamoru Mono. Level 77, HP: 7777 (each part) This battle is extremely easy if you have 4 Samurais, and just use "Zeninage". However, if you don't do that, "Gravite" spell works well, and "Titan" summon works well, too. After a few spells or Zeninages, it will die. ************************************************************************* ****************************************** BIG SPOILER ****************************************** After the battle, X-Death kills Galuf. Don't fret, though, because Galuf's grandaughter, Krile will join. She gets all of the abilities that Galuf used to have, and is pretty much the same in terms of strength and individual stats. ************************************************************************* After you have gotten out of this big scene, and you don't have very much cash, it's a good idea to go to Gilgame's cave. There is a lot of treasures here, all filled with GP as high as 40960. However, in this cave, you could fight Gilgamesh. To beat him here use the Bulizado magic and nail him with Monks and Ninjas. He shouldn't be that hard here, although he does have 32768 HP. 13. X-Death Castle (Level: 40) Treasures here: Daia no Tate (Diamond Shield), Ether x 2, ERikkser x 2, Ice Shield, Hayate no Yumiya (Gale Bow), Ice Brand, Kotetsu, 9900 GP, 8000 GP, Twin Lance, Partisan, Fuuma Shuriken. Go to the front door. You'll have to go through all of the floors to reach X-Death. In the 3rd floor, there is an illusion of X-Death. Just go back a bit. It isn't hard to progress up the tower from here, because it's fairly linear, but when you get to the 10th floor, get Karbunkle summon here by beating it. He always has "Reflec" cast on him, so your mahou that you cast on him will bounce back and hit you. However, if you cast "Reflec" on your own party members, and hit them with mahou, it will bounce of them and hit him. Also, Katoblepas can sometimes kill him in one cast. You will have to fight Gilgamesh on the 12th floor. ************************************************************************* 12 floor: Gilgamesh Level ??, HP: ?? This is an incredibly easy battle. Normal attacks will beat him. Just make sure to have a healer on hand if you need it, otherwise, just use normal attacks, and waste him. ************************************************************************* On the 13th floor, you'll have to fight X-Death... ************************************************************************* 13th floor: X-Death Level 66, HP: 32768 Make sure to cast both "Golem" and "Karbunkle" to protect your party during this fight. After you're all protected, pound away at him using Zeninage, normal attacks, and Ninja's Double Hits or Monks. After awhile of dueling, he will die. ************************************************************************* After the battle with X-Death, he merges the two past worlds together into one world. Are you ready?! End of World 2. ----------------- World 3: ----------------- 1. Tycoon and Western Valley (Level: 40) Boko will come back to you. Ride it north and fight Antolion at West Valley. You'll regain Faris. 2. Ghido, the Ancient Library, and the Pyramid. (Level: 41) Go to Ghido's dwelling, and X-Death will come here. He'll talk of destroying you, but won't succeed. :) After he leaves, head over to the Ancient Library. Get the "Maryoku no Uta" (Song of Mahou) on top of the library. Get "Fuuin no Sho" (Concealed Book). This is used for opening the seals around the temples. Once you have it, go to the Pyramid. Treasures here: Noroi no Yubiwa (Cursed Ring), Ice Shield, Flame Shield, Dark Matter x 7, Shiro no Robe (White Robe), Kuro no Robe (Black Robe), ERikkser x 4, Ibara no Kanmuri (Thornlet helmet), Kuro Shouzoku (Ninja Wear), Crystal Mail, 8000 griu, 9000 GP, Daichi no Hammer (Earth Hammer), 10000 GP, Ribbon, Cottage, Mamori no Yubiwa (Ring of Protection), Kin no Kamikazari, 12000 GP. This isn't such a hard of a dungeon, but there is a hard enemy that is randomly encountered here, "Machine Heads". You can't run away, and they have 7210 HP, so be careful. When you get to the very top, you'll get your first Sekiban. These are used to get 3 of the 12 legendary weapons (3 x 4 is 12, so that must mean that there's 4 dungeons with Sekiban in them ^_^). Also, Bahamut will show up, and then he flies to North Moutain, where you will have to face him later. 3. X-Death appears and the new Airship (Level: 42) You will meet with X-Death as you are walking back to the Ancient Library. He sucks the library into "mu" (nothingness). and you will have to fight another boss, Meryujinnu. ************************************************************************* Boss at the Library "mu" site: Meryujinnu. Level 33, HP: 20000 It is imperative that you have 4 KuroMadoushis (Black Mages) here. She can use "barrier" change, and change her weakness to Fire, Ice, or Lightning. So use magic like Gravite, Aero, Bio, and things other than those, and her gaining life on account of you using the wrong magic shouldn't be a problem. ************************************************************************* After you beat her, Reina will join up again. Travel to the east coast. You will find a new airship here. If you ride the airship, X-Death will suck some more towns or castles into "mu". It's a good idea now to go back to the Pirate's base, as you will learn the "Hydra" (Faris's dragon) summon here. Now, head to the castle of Koozer for your choice of 3 of the legendary weapons. Because of the classes I like the most, I usually take the Excalibur, Assasin Dagger, and Sasuke no Katana on my first visit. However, take the weapons according to the classes you use most often. *Note: There are really hard enemies here, so be sure to save the game at the entrance. 4. Crescent and Solitary Island (Level: 43) You will get information about Mirage town from the citizens here. Go to the town by heading into the forest south-west of crescent. Buy all of the Level 6 magic spells here, and you will find the last piano here to play. There is a Black Chocobo here that will be very useful later. Now, head to the Shrine on the Solitary Island. Treasures here: 12000 GP, ERikkser, 9000 GP, Rising Sun, Ether x 2, Beast Slayer, Ryuu no Kiba (Dragon Fang), Dark Matter, Circlet, Mamori no Yubiwa (Ring of Protection), Crystal Helm. You have to go through an air duct in this dungeon. If you hit the switch to the right, you will get an ERikkser. Head back to the switch room, and hit the left switch for 9000 GP, and hit the fight switch up to go forward. This isn't too hard of a dungeon if your levels are pretty high, but when you get to the end of it, you'll have to fight Stalker. ************************************************************************* Boss of Solitary Island Shrine: Stalker. Level 7, HP: 20000 This enemy is very strange, in that it changes it's form to 4 creatures. Only one of them is the real monster. Don't use mahou on everything, as he will counter with a powerful magic. It's really good to use "Zeninage" here, as it will attack all of the segments with physical damage, hitting the true Stalker as well. ************************************************************************* 5. Fork Tower (Level: 43) Treasures: Ether (Ether), Hi-Potion, Wonder Wand, Defender. In this tower, one party goes to the "Tower of Mahou" (left), and the "Tower of Power" (right). Only mahou attacks are allowed in the Tower of Mahou, and only physical attacks are allowed in the Tower of Power. At the top of each tower, you will have to fight two bosses. For the Tower of Mahou, you must fight Subete wo Shirumono. ************************************************************************* Boss of Tower of Mahou: Subete wo Shirumono. Level 53, HP: 16999 Weakness: Wind You can only do magic attacks on him, or you will have to begin the battle again. It's really easy to beat him if you cast "Baasaku" (Berserk) on him. He won't be able to use any more of his mahou anymore, but he can still use normal attacks on you, so you might want to use a "Golem" summon. He isn't that hard from there, just use "Earoga" on him, and any other wind mahou you might have. ************************************************************************* You'll also have to fight the Minotaur in the Tower of Power. ************************************************************************* Boss of Tower of Power: Minotaur. Level 37, HP: 19850 No magic at all can be cast in this battle. You'll have to heal your characters with normal items. Just make two Monks, or a Monk and a Ninja, and keep beating him with normal attacks. If you put the Monk on "Guard" status, he will take no damage from Minotaur's physical attacks, and he'll counter-attack sometimes if you are hit. This shouldn't be too hard with 2 physical fighters in your party. ************************************************************************* *Note: Keep in mind that whenever you receive a "seikban", you can take 3 additional weapons from the legendary weapons display in the Concealed Castle of Koozer. Just head back there to get your weapons after you've collected them. 6. Improved Airship and the Great Deep (Level: 44) Go to the catapult and get airship modifications from Cid. You'll now be able to use your airship as a submarine, as well. After you've gotten this, go through the Dwarf Kingdom and head to the bottom floor. Treasures in the Great Deep: Suiton no Jutsu, Honoo no Yubiwa, Ryuu no Kiba, Ether, Kaizer Fist, Fenix Down. There are a HUGE number of undead monsters in this dungeon, so you might even want to use your healing magic on them. Also, "Requiem" doesn't take any MP to use, yet it gives undead monsters a lot of damage. There are a series of switches here, and it shouldn't be that hard to find your way through, so keep moving on, collecting all the treasures that you can here. At the end of the dungeon, you'll have to fight 3 bosses. ************************************************************************* Bosses of the Great Deep: Toraiton (Red Creature): Level 37, HP: 13333 Weakness: Ice Phorbos (Green Creature): Level 39, HP: 13333 Weakness: Earth Neregeid (Blue Creature): Level 20, HP: 13333 Weakness: Fire All of these bosses are immune to mahou other than their weakness, so it's a good idea to use the summon "Hydra" here. Also, have KuroMadoushis use individual mahou on the monsters, according to their weaknesses. "Requiem" also works here, and hits 2 of the 3 enemies. ************************************************************************* After this, you can get 3 more weapons from Koozer. There should only be 3 weapons left now. 7. Getting Odin (Level: 45) Now is a good time to get another useful summon, Odin. To get him, go to the Jachol dungeon, and climb the wall in the back (You should have already been here...remember?). Go up and meet Odin. ************************************************************************* Odin. Level 2, HP: 17000 You have to beat Odin in 60 seconds, or else he will automatically destroy the party. "Holy" and "Flare" mahou work very well here, and so do throwing Shurikens. Even high level attacking Monks will work. If you can't beat him the first time, keep trying. After you beat him, you get his summon. Also, you can steal "Mamori no Yubiwa" (Protection Ring) from him. ************************************************************************* To get to the Phoenix Tower, you need to pick up that Black Chocobo you found in Mirage, and bring him here, since the airship can come here, but it can't land in the forests like the Chocobo can. 8. Phoenix Tower (Level: 46) Treasures: 5000 GP, 10000 GP, 15000 GP, 20000 GP, 25000 GP. When you get into here, search the middle wall. You will be brought to a series of rooms, each with 2 staircases in it. If you pick the right one, there will be no enemies, but if you don't, you can be attacked by enemies. Try to do this on your own, but if you're the cheating type... Left, Left, Right, Right, Left, Left, Right, Right, Left, Left, Right, Left, Left, Right, Right, Right, Right, Left, Left, Right, door. On some floors, you will meet the enemy "Magic Pot". If you feed him an ERikkser when you meet him, he will give your entire group 100 ABP each. This is great for mastering classes, and is well worth it, I think. Also, a lot of the enemies here have great items to steal. Make sure to steal them. When you get to the tower, you will get the Phoenix summon. 9. North Mountain (Level: 46) North Mountain is right above the forest you landed the Black Chocobo in earlier as you went to the Phoenix Tower. You will have to beat Bahamut at the top, and he is a very tough opponent. ************************************************************************* Boss of North Mountain: Bahamut. Level 99, HP: 40000 This is one of the toughest battles in the game. The best mahou in the game works best here, like Holy, Flare, Meteo, and Hydra summon. "Slow" and "Stop" also will work, but Stop doesn't work that well. This should be a long battle, but hopefully, you'll win. :) ************************************************************************* 10. Getting the Mimic Class (Level: 46) When Walz sank in World One, there was one crystal shard that wasn't reachable. Well, you can get that shard now. Use the submarine, and search around until you find it (Hopefully, you'll remember where Walz was). You start at the top, and you have to go toward the bottom of it. You only have a certain time limit for this (people can't hold their breath that long, ya' know! ^_^). At the very bottom, you'll fight Gogo. ************************************************************************* Walz Sunken Tower: Gogo. Level ??, HP: ?? This is probably the easiest battle in the game, if you know what you're doing. Otherwise, it's the hardest. :) When you first meet him, he'll say "If you do what I do, you can win". Well, he won't do anything at all, so just sit there. You'll win in a matter of minutes. :) After this battle, you'll receive the Mimic class, the best class in the game. ************************************************************************* 11. Easterly Falls and extra things (Level: 47) Treasures here: Ether, Air Knife, Kame no Koura (Tortoise Shell), Mamori no Yubiwa, Reflec Ring, Enhancer Sword, 12000 GP, Aegis Shield, Artemis no Yumi (Artemis Bow), Fuuma Shuriken, Kyojin no Ono (Giant Axe), Kyojin no Kusuri (Giant Medicine), Rune Blade. There is a white spot on the map near Easterly Falls. You have to get here via underwater cave. There are a few tricks to getting the chests here. On floor B3F, you need the Thief's "Dash" ability to get the chest on the other side of the water, but it is still very hard. Also, on B5F, you get to the bottom floor by jumping in the holes. You open the hole by the switch to the side of it. There is a hard enemy here that you can encounter randomly, Tonberi. He has 39393 HP! After you beat him, though, you can sometimes win a very great piece of armor, the Mirage Vest. After awhile, you'll have to fight Rivaiathan. ************************************************************************* Boss of Easterly Falls: Leviathan Level 39, HP: 40000 Weakness: Lightning/Thunder Mahouken Sandaga work very well on him. He is weak to thunder, so summon "Hydra" also works very well. I found that Knights with Two Hands ability and two strong swords will also do a lot of damage. After awhile, you'll kill him, and receive his summon. ************************************************************************* Now you can go back to Koozer, and get the last of the 12 legendary weapons. *There are a few more additional things you can do to help you beat the game more easily, and I'll list a few that are most notable. Getting the Chicken Knife or Brave Sword: Go back to the town of Muah. The locked door that was here before can now be opened. Go in, and you'll have to walk through a small forest. When you get to the end of it, you'll talk a person, and he will offer either to give you a Chicken Knife or Brave Sword. If you've run away from a lot of battles in the game, take the Chicken Knife. If you haven't run away much, take the Brave Sword. The Chicken Knife's power is increased by running from battles up until the point you get it, and the Brave sword is just the opposite...it's strongest if you haven't run away from many battles. It also decreases every time you run. Also, the Chicken Knife sometimes has the effect of making you run away! It's really a matter of personal preference, but if you run away a lot throughout the game, I prefer the Chicken Knife over the Brave Sword. Master Pianist: (That's playing the piano. ^_^) If you've played all of the pianos in each of the towns, you can become a piano master. After you've played them all, go to Crescent Town, and a Bard tere will give you "Eiyuu no Uta", which raises your levels during battle. Also, if you want, it's not very important, but you can go to a bay south of Karnak, and to a cave to the right side of the bay, and a man will tell you the number of fights you've been in, the number of monsters slayed, your average experience points per battle, your treasure box collection percentage, and number of times you've saved. It's now time to go to the final dungeon, slay X-Death, and restore peace to the world. It's time to enter the void to the Cleft of Dimention. 12. Cleft of Dimention (Level: 50) Yes, I think it'll be a lot less work for you if you're on level 50 or above here, because some of the later bosses here are really tough, and you'll be able to insure getting out of here and beating the game quickly. :) There are 6 sections to the Cleft of Dimention. The Ruins, Forest, Dungeon,Towers, Castle, and Last Floors. Cleft of Dimention Ruins: Treasures here: Ether, Cottage, ERikkser x 2, Blood Sword, Dark Matter. There isn't much to do here. You climb up by using the chains on the walls. Just make your way through, but you haven't seen nothing of this dungeon yet. :) Cleft of Dimention: Forest Treasures here: Ryuu no Kiba, Riris no Rod (Riris Rod), Enhancer Sword. This isn't hard at all to make your way through, either, but there is a boss at the end. ************************************************************************* Boss of the Forest: Karophysteli. Level 68, HP: 18000 She uses "Reflec" to deflect mahou to you, but you can use "Dispell" to get rid of that. She doesn't have a particular weakness, so just pound away with normal attacks, or Zeninage, or anything you've got that you think will destroy her. ************************************************************************* Cleft of Dimention: Dungeon Treasures here: Tenshi no Yubiwa (Angel Ring), Honoo no Yubiwa (Flame Ring). You enter from the top of the waterfall. Make sure to heal up and save on the save point here. Right after, you will see a mechanical creature walking around. This is Omega. You can ignore it and walk on, but you can also fight it. It's a very hard enemy. ************************************************************************* Boss of Dungeon Zero: Omega. Level 119, HP: 55530 Omega is the second toughest boss in the game, right behind Shinryuu. First of all, Omega is weak against lightning attacks. A very good way of beating him is to make three characters Mahoukenshis. Also, have one character that can heal the party. Having double cast is also a really big asset. It is really preferred if you have at least one master Mahoukenshi, because then you'll be able to cast the most powerful lightning spell on your sword. It's also a really good idea to give two swords to each of your Mahoukenshi. After you have made all of your Mahoukenshis (or Suppins, anyone that can use sword mahou), have them cast the most powerful lightning spell that they have on themselves (or each other). After you do this, just attack him very quickly, and if you are consistent on this strategy, he should go down quickly. Make sure to have your healer constantly casting Cure 3 on your party, and having double cast ability is even better, because you will get twice the HP restored. I just beat him recently when all of my characters were level 65 Suppin masters. It might take a few tries, but if you follow my strategy, you shouldn't have too much trouble on him. ************************************************************************* After you get past Omega, you fight Apanda. ************************************************************************* Boss of Dungeon: Apanda. Level 59, HP: 22200 Weakness: Fire Cast "Baasaku" (Berserk) on Apanda, and use Fire Magic, but not "Ifrit" summon, because he will heal himself and the beserk status. Keep blasting him with your KuroMadoushis. ************************************************************************* Cleft of Dimention: Towers Use the Thief's "Kakushi Tsuuro" ability to see all of the hidden paths. Otherwise, they're invisible. There are a few really tough enemies here, so use your best fighters. Especially Ninjas and Dragon Eibis. There isn't any boss to this section, and it's not very long to beat. But, it is quite hard, because of the ultra-tough enemies. Cleft of Dimention: Castle Treasures here: Tooru no Hammer (Hammer of Thor), ManEater, Erumesu no Kutsu (Herme's Shoes), Akai Kutsu (Red Shoes), Rainbow Dress. Go straight and dwon the staircase to the left. You will go to a jail-like place, and you will have to fight Apocaryopus. *Note: Apocaryopus has the ability to cast every single Blue Magic (Blue Magic) spell in the game. You might want to learn some important ones if you don't have them already. ************************************************************************* Boss of Castle: Apocaryopus. Level 57, HP: 27900 Weakness: Poison Use Bio! It inflicts about 7500 damage each cast, so just keep pelting him away with Bio spells from KuroMadoushis, and normal attacks with Monks, Knights, Ninjas, or Samurais. ************************************************************************* After you beat him, it opens up a save point, so make sure to heal and save. After you save, explore the rest of the areas in the Castle, and get the Herme's Shoes in the left wing, and Thor's Hammer in the right wing. You'll eventually have to fight Catastrophe. ************************************************************************* Boss 2 of Castle: Catastrophe. Level 71, HP: 19997 Any strong normal attacks here work. Be sure to have someone on hand that can heal the party at any given moment, though, as this could be a hard fight. If he uses "Akuma no Hitomi", use Kin no Hari items to cure it. ************************************************************************* Then, enter the central door. You fight Harikarunassosu as you are walking up the staircase. ************************************************************************* Boss 3 of Castle: Harikarunassosu. Level 97, HP: 33333 Most any normal attacks work here, but she can dish out some pretty tough spells. Again, have at least one ShiroMadoushi (White Mage) on hand to cure the party when needed. Also, you can cast "Baasaku" to stop her "Krileruru!" attack. ************************************************************************* After a bit of walking , you will have to enter up on top of the castle, and fight Twin Tania. ************************************************************************* Boss 3 of Castle: Twin Tania. Level 39, HP: 50000 He has a really high ammount of HP. This was one of the harder battles in the game for me, because I didn't have enough HP, and couldn't do enough damage in the time alotted. When the message "Gig Flare no tameni power up!" appears, use Odin. This is pretty much the only trick into beating him, but he is very vulnerable to Holy attacks. Also, it's possible to steal a "Kyojin no Ono" (Giant Axe) from him. ************************************************************************* Cleft of Dimention: Final Floors Treasures here: Ragnarok, Fuuma Shuriken x 3. A long time ago, Gilgamesh was sent to the Cleft of Dimention. Well, he shows up again. Then, he runs away. When you warp 2 times, you will find a treasure. You will have to beat "Shinryuu" (God of Dragons) to receive it, though. ************************************************************************* Boss of Final Floor: Shinryuu. Level 97, HP: 55500 This is very, very tough. Probably the toughest battle of the game. To have ANY chance in this battle, you'll have to have 4 Coral Rings from Easterly (they cost 50000 GP). This blocks his initial "Tital Wave" attack, which can hit for up to 6000 damage. Then, pound him with everything you've got, and quickly. Don't attack with anything Holy attributed, because that's his attribute, and he will gain HP from it. ************************************************************************* Don't go straight (X-Death is there, you will fight him last). If you go on, you will fight Necrophobia. ************************************************************************* Boss 2 of Final Floor: Necrophobia. Level 66, HP: 44044 You have to beat 4 small segments before you can attack the actual monster itself. "Golem" is really helpful here, as it will take the blows of a lot of Necrophobia's attacks. Bahamut, Flare, and Meteor all work great here. *Trick: You can defeat Gilgamesh here, if you take the right steps. Kill all of the barriers, then reduce Necrophobia's HP to about 6000. Make sure NOT to kill him. Gilgamesh will eventually show up. You can steal the greatest armor in the game from him, the Genji Armor. You can then wipe the 2 off the earth. :) It's time. Head up the center and fight him. Are you ready? Yes, I think you are. :) ************************************************************************* Round One of the Final Battle: X-Death. "Golem" is really useful for protecting the party. "Heisuga" works very well for speeding you up, so you can have the edge in battle. Pelt him with all you've got, Flare, Holy, Meteor, Bahamut, Hydra all work here. He will eventually morph into NeoX-Death. Round Two of the Final Battle: NeoX-Death. There are 4 places you can hit. The 2 places in the back are in the back row, so your normal attacks will inflict half damage. Did you save up cash? Let's hope you did. :) "Zeninage" (Coin Toss) works VERY well on him...very strong attacks and mahou will work again, just keep fighting until the bloody end. :) ************************************************************************* The Ending.... *Note: The ending of the game depends on which characters were living when you defeated X-Death (characters turned to stone are considered dead). If you have all characters alive when you defeat him, you will get the most sequences in the ending. ----------- Abilities: ----------- There are exactly 100 abilities in the game.

It's really not that hard to play the actual game in a SNES, rather then a Super Famicom. First of all, if you don't want to be risky, and don't know what you're doing, buy a SNES Converter. You can buy these at imports stores for about $15. I've seen these sold at www.gamecave.com. If you don't want to buy the converter, and want to void any customer service option you may have, then read on. :) *Note: You only need to use this section if you are planning on playing Final Fantasy 5 on a SNES console. If you are playing Final Fantasy Anthology on PlayStation, skip this section. 1) Take your controllers and wires from the back off of SNES. Look inside the slot where the game goes in on the top. You should see something like this: _____________________________________________________ | |1| |2| | | _______________________________ | | | | |______________________________| | |_______ ________| |___A___|____________________________________|___B___| 2) You'll have to find a way of cutting tabs "A" and "B" out (these tabs block a Japanese game from going into the SNES). I recommend using a Knife, Screwdriver, and wirecutter combo. :) If you knife away at the slabs, they'll eventually be cut, making it easy to pry them out. They are very tough, though, and it might take awhile to do it, but it's worth the hard work. :) 3) I have no idea if the small tabs "1" and "2" have anything to do with it. I have cut mine off, however, and they're easier than tabs "A" and "B" to cut off. 4) Once you have everything cut off, try a putting a Japanese game in the system. If it fits into the pins, it worked. Otherwise, you'll have to keep cutting away at the tabs until it fits. 5) Enjoy Final Fantasy 5. :) ------------------- Battle Options: ------------------- Top: Tatakau (Fight): This basically just fights whatever enemy you select. You'll just be able to fight normally as you wish. *Note: There are 2 other slots for commands between "Tatakau" and "Aitema" options. These are for the various skills your character will receive, within a given class. All of these differ. Bottom: Aitema (Item): This just selects an item you want to use on a party member. You can't use an item that another character is already holding, but you can use whatever is in your inventory. Pressing Left on the Pad: Chiengu (Change): This just changes your character's row in battle. Characters in the back row take half as much physical damage, but just as much magic damage. Sometimes it may be good to put your mahou (magic) users in the back row, as they usually have less HP than other members, but I usually just leave all of my characters in the front row. Pressing Right on the Pad: Bougyo (Defense): Use this for your character to defend. He/she won't attack in anyway, but damage dealt by physical attacks, and a few spells, will be reduced. *Note: Holding the "L" and "R" buttons on the controller allow your characters to run from the battle. This is similar to Final Fantasy 6. --------------- Menu Options: --------------- Pressing "X" on the control pad brings up the game's main menu. This is where you'll use items outside of battle, spells, or other various things, like saving. These are translations of all of the items on the right side, starting from the top. You only need to use this section if you're playing the Super Famicom version of the game, as this is a description of the Translations from the game. If you're playing Final Fantasy Anthology on the PlayStation, don't worry about this section. Top window: 2 word slots Top option: Jobu (Jobs): this is where the game's main class change system is worked from. You can select what class you want to make your character, and select abilities you'd like to give them, as well. Check the "Jobs" section of this FAQ for translations of all of the jobs in the game. Bottom option: Abyritei (Abilities): This just lets you change what additional abilities you want to give your individual characters. Middle window: 6 word slots Top option: Aitema (Item): This is almost exactly the same as the "Aitema" battle command, it lets you use items on your party outside of battle. Next option: Mahou (Magic): This lets you use any of the magic a character has in the party. This is most useful for healing magic outside of battle, and is used quite often. Next option: Equrau (Equip): This just lets you equip any weapons and armor for individual characters. The top 2 slots are used for weapons and shields, the next helmet, the next body armor, and the next rings (or other "trinket" items). Next option: Sutetasu (Status): This gives the level, hit points, magic points, total ammount of experience, and experience until the next level, for the character you select. It also shows what commands that charcter can currently use in battle, what weapons he/she can equip, and the individual stats to the right. Next option: Conufuiru (Configure): This allows you to select between "Active" and "Wait" settings (Active allows enemies to attack you while you're selecting options, and Wait allows whoever's bar fills up the first to do things before all others). Then you can change the fight and message text, window colors, and other small things. This isn't too important to the game. Bottom option: Savru (Save): You can save the game anywhere on the world map, and save points. On the world map and save points you can also use Tents and Cottages. Tents and Cottages both relieve lost HP and MP, but Cottages relieve more than Tents do. Next Window: Time. This just tells how long you've played the current game. Next Window: GP. This is the basic money in Final Fantasy 5. It's spent on items, weapons, armor, and various other things. ------------ Job System: ------------ These are the jobs selectable, from left to right. (New jobs won't appear until you actually get them in the game.) On the main menu, above a character's HP, is their job level. Levels vary by means of level it takes to master a job. To the right of that, is how many job points a character has, and the job points necessary for the next level. *Note: For job abilities, check my "Abilities" section of my Strategy Guide. There are 100 total abilities in the game. Naito (Knight) Monk Shiifo (Thief) Ryuukishi (Dragon Knight/Dragoon) Ninja Samurai Baasaakaa (Berserker) Karyuudo (Hunter) Mahoukenshi (Magic Swordsman) ShiroMadoushi (White Mage) KuroMadoushi (Black Mage) TokiMadoushi (Time Mage) Shoukanshi (Summoner) AoMadoushi (Blue Mage) AkaMadoushi (Red Mage) Majuutsukai (Monster Trainer) Kusurishi (Chemist) Fuusuishi (Elemental Mage) Ginyuushijin (Bard) Odoriko (Dancer) Mimic --------------- Best Weapons: --------------- Most of the best weapons in the game are NOT the 12 legendary weapons, as most think. Some are hard to find, others are not, but they are very useful, especially for beating Shinryuu and NeoX-Death. Bow: Bow of Artemis Steal: Green Dragons in the sky section of the Cleft of Dimension. Axe: Axe of Giants Steal: Boss before the final dungeon. Spear: Hiryuu Lance Steal: Crystal Dragons in the final dungeon. Katana: Blade of Angels Steal: Monsters left of the warp point in the castle section of the Cleft of Dimention. Sword: Ragnarok, Brave Sword Ragnarok: You receive the Ragnarok sword after beating Shinryuu at the very end of the game, right before you face X-Death. Brave Sword: You have the option of choosing the Brave Sword instead of the Chicken Knife from the man in Muah town in the third world. Whip: Dragon Whip Steal: Secret enemy in the ocean south of Tycoon (Near sunken Walz tower. This enemy is called the Stingray. I've met this enemy only once, and I haven't gotten the actual blade yet. This enemy is extremely rare to find. Cane: Staff of Judgement Steal: Dark-robed wizards in X-Death's castle in Galuf's world. Bell: Rune Bell Get: Dropped in Cleft of Dimention randomly by Valdendalas (circular enemies with a skull on them). Knife: Chicken Knife Get: Choose between this or the Brave Sword in Muah town in the third world. *Note: If anyone knows if there are any other better weapons then the ones here listed, please let me know, and you will receive credit. ----------------- Blue Magic List: ----------------- Here is a run down of the all of the Blue Magic spells in the game, in a general order from the beginning to end of the game. Thanks to Martin RPG (email@example.com) for compiling this list. I decided to put the blue magic in this order instead of making a chart because this gives a good order to get all of the blue magic from beginning to the end of the game. *Note: I realize that a lot of the translations of the blue magic here are different than they should be. Squaresoft did some fairly questionable translations especially on the blue magic, but this is a guide for the North American Final Fantasy Anthology, after all.

Indeed, it has been a long time since this FAQ had a major update, seeing as how this game is now a golden oldie. However, with the new era of the Playstation, there has been a remake of this game, along with its presence in the awesome Final Fantasy Anthology, which recently hit US shores just after the arrival of FF8! With this re-release, an update to what has become an archaic FAQ is indeed in order. I have rewritten the entire walkthrough and content to modernize what was once the best FF6 FAQ available (without all of those pesky errors so common in even Nintendo's official guide ^_^). This Walkthrough, unlike many other FAQs, goes into excruciating detail about each area, and originally took a long time to create. For those of you who remember and were a part of the long history of Gamewiz from way back in the days when AOL was a much valued partner in the video game experience, welcome back. This FAQ has continued its livelihood as my most successful work, and has now had a new breath of life to drive it forward thanks to the rerelease on the Final Fantasy Anthology. Most sections have been completely rewritten and rearanged for a better 'flow' through the text. The entire Square Interviews section has been taken out because of how archaic they are now. If you wish to view these interviews from magazines, drop me a line; I save everything. With the Playstation versions, there has been a need for more than just codes for the good 'ol Game Genie, so a future update will include Game Shark codes and perhaps descriptions of the new CG movies present in the game. I have just about touched upon the changes that have occurred between the SNES FF3 and the now true-named FF6. As with every FAQ I write, please, PLEASE try NOT to use this FAQ as a crutch. The true gaming experience is that of using your own skill and cunning to complete the game. Only use this FAQ if you feel that you are stuck and have tried all options or have completed the game and now wish to dig out every hidden secret crammed into it. WHERE TO FIND THIS FAQ: The latest version of this FAQ is available at: http://www.gamefaqs.com http://home.earthlink.net/~step808/home.html Alternately, contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr Gamewiz (email@example.com) and ask for the update. For Wizard and Jon, my fellow creators who are now unacounted for, I would like to present you with the finest FF6 FAQ you will ever read. To Dr Gamewiz, my you rest in peace and my your legacy live on for all eternity as you shine down on us from your resting place. Enjoy the FAQ everyone! --King Kung (Joseph M.

A COMPLETE rewrite of the entire FAQ to edit out any remaining issues. Things have been moved around so that they make more sense now.

Version 7.5 - (By King Kung) - Now joined with Exeath's FF5 Strategy Guide to form the ultimate Final Fantasy Anthology FAQ. New additions and changes to the game have indeed been made and are mentioned. Also added is information regarding Sky Render's retranslation ROM patch.

They are notorious for releasing books that go into great detail to describe each character. The Skills section explains each character's special actions. The stats used reflect the stats that a character usually begins the game with. Equipment is a basic description of what that character can normally equip. Obviously, there are some things that are seperate from these (Snow Muffler, male or female only items, etc.) Names given are from the US Final Fantasy 6, with the Japanese difference, if any, listed below in parenthesis. Notes are given after the character description about some specific characteristics. Terra Branford: Gifted Magic Warrior (Tina) PROFILE Age:18 Height:5'7" Weight:105 lbs. SKILLS Power:31 Quickness:33 Magic:39 Strength:28 EQUIPMENT Sword, Helmet, Armor SPECIAL SKILL: Morph - Turn into more powerful being Daughter of Madonna and the Esper Maduin, Terra is the the unique Product of crossbreeding. In the beginning, Terra storms into Narshe in Imperial MagiTek armor. The vile Empire has brainwashed her and is uses her natural magic abilities for its own greedy uses. But when she finds the frozen Esper, something in her awakens, and soon after becomes a part of the rebellion. Over the course of the game she will learn to love others, a skill which the Empire squeezed out of her. Though she may grow to doubt her signficance, the success of the Returners (and the world) depends on her powers. Locke Cole: Treasure Hunter (Lock) PROFILE Age:25 Height:5'9" Weight:147 lbs. SKILLS Power:37 Quickness:40 Magic:28 Strength:31 EQUIPMENT Dagger, Sword, Plain Sword, Helmet, Light Mail SPECIAL SKILL: Steal - Take item from enemy Capture - Take item and attack Locke plays the suave adventurer and proclaims himself to be a treasure hunter, but others regard him as a thief. His past is shrouded in a veil of tragedy. His skills at appropriating (read: stealing) items will save your party money and effort. With the right relic he can also attack while he swipes the enemie's valuables. He remains a constant and true companion throughout your journey. Edgar Roni Figaro: Mechanic PROFILE Age:27 Height:6'2" Weight:169 lbs. SKILLS Power:39 Quickness:30 Magic:29 Strength:34 EQUIPMENT Spear, Sword, Knight Sword, Helmet, Armor SPECIAL SKILL: Tools - Battle with special contraptions King Edgar of Figaro secretly supports the Returners while paying lip service to the Empire. When Imperial forces storm his castle, he quickly severs all ties to Gestahl. His mechanical skills and use of technology become great advantages against the Empire. But what secret troubles lie in this womanizing King's past? Only a reuniting with his brother Sabin can reveal the truth. Sabin Rene Figaro: Blackbelt (Mash) PROFILE Age:27 Height:6'3" Weight:233 lbs. SKILLS Power:47 Quickness:37 Magic:28 Strength:39 EQUIPMENT Knuckles, Hat, Light Armor SPECIAL SKILL: Blitz - Attack with martial arts techniques King Edgar's brother has studied the ways of the martial arts masters and now he possesses awesome physical skills. After the battle on Mt. Kolts, Sabin becomes one of the most valuable members of your party. His Blitz technique requires dexterity, but the attacks are powerful enough to overthrow many enemies with one hit. Those familliar with fighting games might be right at home with this brawler. He will acquire more advanced Blitzes as he advances in levels, but only a visit with his teacher can round out his skills. Celes Chere: Rune Knight PROFILE Age:18 Height:5'9" Weight:165 lbs. SKILLS Power:31 Quickness:31 Magic:29 Strength:31 EQUIPMENT Sword, Knight Sword, Helmet, Armor SPECIAL SKILL: Runic - Absorb magic as MP This woman's beauty hides her raw grit and powerful abilities. When you first meet Celes, she is an Imperial prisoner, but it turns out that she was once one of the Empire's generals. Genetically engineered by the Empire to kill without question, she turns against it to prove a powerful ally. As an ally, she is a strong fighter and her Runic Blade may just save your entire party on several occasions. Like Terra, she is blessed with the "gift" of magic, although hers are present due to a genetic process involving Magicite. Because of this, she will develop powerful magic skills without difficulty. Shadow: Ninja PROFILE Age:Unknown Height:5'10" Weight:145 lbs. SKILLS Power:39 Quickness:38 Magic:33 Strength:30 EQUIPMENT Ninja Sword, Hat, Light Armor SPECIAL SKILL: Throw - Toss items at enemy Interceptor - Counter/block enemy attacks Shadow, the lonely ninja, travels the world selling his skills to the highest bidder. His only trusted companion is his dog, Interceptor, who can also help your party. Shadow comes and goes at will. His past, along with his true identity, are shrouded behind his own shadow. His hidden secrets often give him nightmares. Cyan Garamonde: Noble Knight (Cayenne) PROFILE Age:50 Height:5'10" Weight:158 lbs. SKILLS Power:40 Quickness:28 Magic:25 Strength:32 EQUIPMENT Katana, Helmet, Armor SPECIAL SKILL: SwdTch - Charge up for sword attacks A chivalrous and proper knight, Cyan retains the throne at Doma castle. Brave Cyan loses his family in the horrible poisoning at Doma, but he doesn't lose his nerve. Alone, he sets out to attack the Empire! You'll turn his powerful sword to the good of the Returners and the world, but for him to become a true warrior, he must deal with his losses and loneliness. Gau: Wild Child PROFILE Age:13 Height:5'3" Weight:169 lbs. SKILLS Power:15 Quickness:16 Magic:21 Strength:14 EQUIPMENT Hat, Light Armor SPECIAL SKILL: Leap/Rage - Learn and use attacks of the enemy The Wild Boy of the Veldt, Gau, joins your party if you feed him some meat. He'll reward you with a great prize, but he is a useful ally, too. Gau's Rage attacks can slash through unsuspec- ting enemies with amazing force. Having spent most of his life among the animals of the Veldt, he has learned to immitate their attacks to survive. Once he has joined the Returners, he will call upon the fighting techniques of the most vicious of beasts against the Empire. Although it may take many battles, Gau has the potential to be a very powerful force... so don't let his lack of equipable weapons turn you away! Setzer Gabbiani: Gambler (Setzar) PROFILE Age:27 Height:5'9" Weight:136 lbs. SKILLS Power:32 Quickness:32 Magic:28 Strength:31 EQUIPMENT Cards, Dice, Helmet, Armor SPECIAL SKILL: Slot - Slot machine gives varying prizes GP Rain - Toss money at enemy A carefree Gambler on the outside, Setzer is hiding a tragic past. The loss of his soulmate, Darryl, haunts his now wealthy lifestyle. He's a rich adventurer and risk-taker. The flip of a coin can make his most important decisions, but eventually he must rely on luck to survive the chance encounters of life. Setzer's main contribution to the cause is his Airship, but his fighting skills and special Slot attack prove valuable, too. The outcome may lead to victory, but can also prove to be deadly! With the right relic he can use the party's great wealth to smother the enemies in a shower of coins. Strago Magus: Ancient Lore Master (Straggus) PROFILE Age:70 Height:4'11" Weight:94 lbs. SKILLS Power:9 Quickness:9 Magic:31 Strength:9 EQUIPMENT Rod, Hat, Stuffed Toy, Lore SPECIAL SKILL: Lore - Use magic learned in battle Descended from the Mage Warriors of legend, the villagers of Thamasa all have magical abilities, but Strago is the most powerful of them. His days are spent taking care of his apparent grandaughter, Relm, while he toils away remembering his brave past. There is one creature he was never able to defeat that lingers on his mind. He can learn the spells of enemies and use them, but he must first feel and survive their effects in battle. He plays like a Blue Wizard and his magic skills will grow throughout the adventure. Relm Arrowny: Artist PROFILE Age:10 Height:5' Weight:88 lbs. SKILLS Power:10 Quickness:13 Magic:34 Strength:11 EQUIPMENT Paint Brush, Rod, Hat, Stuffed Toy SPECIAL SKILL: Sketch - Sketch duplicate of enemy that attacks Control - Control the actions of an enemy In the town of Thamasa also resides a young girl with unique powers but no figures to call mother and father. Strago's granddaughter Relm practices an unusual brand of magic. Don't be fooled by her innocent appearance; armed with brush and canvas, she is a force to be reckoned with. She sketches enemies and uses their skills, which can then be turned against them. With a certain Relic that has long been lost she can control the actions of the monsters themselves and make them do her bidding. She also befriends Interceptor and the bond between girl and dog leads to a dramatic rescue in a burning house. And, for the record, she is not fooey. ;) Mog: Moogle PROFILE Age:11 Height:4' Weight:94 lbs. SKILLS Power:12 Quickness:14 Magic:33 Strength:12 EQUIPMENT Spear, Hat, Light Armor SPECIAL SKILL: Dance - Scenic attacks with elements and animals Most Moogles lead peaceful lives, but now that the Empire threa- tens all the land, Mog and his brothers know they must help. As the only Moogle with the ability to speak (due to a great intelect), he becomes a special segment of your party. When Mog joins your party midway in the game (depending on your actions), he must still learn many of his powerful dancing attacks, which is easier said than done! He may also bring along a gargantuan friend. Umaro: Yeti (Uumaro) PROFILE Age:4 Height:6'10" Weight:436 lbs. SKILLS Power:44 Quickness:21 Magic:5 Strength:46 EQUIPMENT Bone Club, Snow Muffler SPECIAL SKILL: Rage - Body slam or torpedo enemies Blizzard - Cold breath attack Hidden within the caves of Narshe roams a wild Yeti of fable. Although he can't use magic, Umaro is the fiercest physical fighter in the game. He can't be equipped with armor or wepaons, save his weapon of choice, the Bone Club, and his super-protective Snow Muffler. A wild beast, he cannot be controlled in battle, but will always fight with you (literally). With the Rage Ring he can fling party members at the enemy for massive damage, and the ellusive Blizzard Orb gives him very cold breath. Be weary, though: his unique brand of beat-em-up may cost you should the other members of your party become wounded. Gogo: Mimic PROFILE Age:Unknown Height:5'5" Weight:132 lbs. SKILLS Power:9 Quickness:14 Magic:26 Strength:10 EQUIPMENT Dagger or Rod, Robe, Light Armor SPECIAL SKILL: Mimic - Copy last party action Can use most other menu commands as well 'It' has remained hidden for centuries, waiting for the chance to emerge. Gogo, an ellusive mimic, resides in a strange place on Triangle Island, but you'll have to search in an unusual fashion to find him. Able to combine and use the special techniques of all other allies, 'it' can be made effectively into a one-man fighting team. This Gogo is apparently not related to the one you fight in Final Fantasy 5, despite the obvious resemblance between them. The true identity of this character remains a mystery, despite speculation as to his (or her) origin. Is 'it' even human? We may never know... SUPPORTING CHARACTERS (NPCs) Vicks and Wedge Special skill: MagiTek - Fight with MagiTek armor MagiTekArmor wearing Imperial soldiers sent out with Terra to find the frozen Esper. The two soldiers can use the armor they are wearing to send out powerful beams to destory their enemies. These beams include a fire beam, an ice beam, and a bolt beam. They also have the ability to heal using Heal Force. These two characters are used only in the first few battles in Narshe, after which point they die at the 'hands' of the frozen Esper. It should be noted that Vicks is a mistranslation of Biggs. Biggs and Wedge were Rebel pilots in Star Wars, with Wedge Antilles being the leader of the ever popular Rogue (Wraith) Squadron. The Moogles Special skill: None >From the caves of Narshe comes the unusual face of help. A bunch of little cute white puff balls. :) They help Locke protect Terra from the Imperial soldiers. The Moogles even have names: Kupek, Kupop, Kumama, Kuku, Kutan, Kupan, Kushu, Kurin, Kuru, and Kamog. They all use various different weapons to attack, and are very powerful for their diminutive size and deceiving looks. Moogles first made their appearence in one of the Gameboy Seiken Densetsu games, and have appeared in every Final Fantasy game since FF5. They are most prominent here in FF6 and also in the mega-popular game Seiken Densestu 2, otherwise known in America as Secret of Mana. Banon Special skill: Health - Cure the party The wise leader of the Returners, Banon's skill allows him to heal everyone in the party. He will play a crucial role in convincing Terra to join the Returners for good, and will prove a strategic edge over the Empire. He is controllable on the raft ride after the invasion of the Returner's hideout, where he must be protected at all costs. Notice that he bears a striking resemblance to Sabin's teacher and mentor... but that's probably just Square saving memory on sprites. ^_^ Ghost Special skill: Possess - Instant kill for enemy and ghost A lost soul on its way to the other side. The ghost has the ability to possess a monster. If it's successful both the monster and the ghost will disappear. Ghosts will join your party until they possess a monster, or until they decide to leave. They are prominent in the Ghost Train, but beware the ghosts that are not friendly! General Leo: Imperial Warrior PROFILE Age: 29 Height: 6'1" Weight:155 lbs. SKILLS Power:38 Quickness:32 Magic:Unknown Strength:33 EQUIPMENT Crystal Sword, Aegis Shield, Heavy Armor, Offering Special skill: Shock - Hit all enemies with burst attack An Imperial general who sees what the Empire has been doing is wrong and decides to do something about it. Alone, he confronts the Empire with sword in hand. Leo's shock attack does massive damage on his oppenent. A very skilled and powerful fighter with a lethal blade that can be used four times in a round (he has an Offering relic). He is a very fun character, but please, PLEASE respect the fact that you only normally get to use him for one specific battle. --------------------------------------------------------------- PART ONE-FF6 Walkthrough --------------------------------------------------------------- By King Kung I chose to write a direct walkthrough, though it is still divided into sections for quick reference. Basically, a really lazy person can just follow this guide through the entire game, though that wouldn't be very much fun. Use this at your own risk, as spoilers will undoubtedly be abundant. In fact, you should probably save this as a last-ditch rescue kit or for when you have completed the game. ***THE WORLD OF BALANCE WALKTHROUGH*** (1) The Story Begins As Terra, Biggs, and Wedge, head north through Narshe. You will fight guards along the way, which are easily defeated by the Fire Beam or in groups with Terra's BioBlaster. If you get severely injured, use the Heal Force, Tonic, or Terra's Cure spell. Remember to save at the first opportunity, because you don't want to repeat the intro again should an upcoming battle leave you defeated. You will fight your first boss: the Whelk. During the battle, remember not to use the Bolt Beam (he fights back if you do), and to avoid hitting the shell. Have Terra use TekMissels, while the other two shoot the Fire Beam. When the creature goes back into its shell, use the Heal Force to get back HP, or wait until he reappears. Continue until it dies. The frozen Esper will kill Wedge and Biggs, then knock Terra unconscious. When you wake up, explore the house's clock, as it holds a valuable Elixir, then head out the back door. There's only one way through the cave, so follow it. Be sure to save your game and open up the treasure chests (or save them for later in the game). Eventually the guards will corner you, and you'll fall through the floor. Enjoy the little cinema scene flasback to Terra's past. Locke will make his entrance. He'll come to Terra's rescue, with the help of those ever cute Moogles. In the group battle, switch to the group that has Mog in it (no, he doesn't join you right now). When he learns his first dance, use it to waste the other enemies (including the Marshall at the end). Before killing the Marshall, unequip Mog so that Edgar can use his weapons later. Upon completion, Locke will bring Terra out of the cave, and through a secret passage that will be important later. From there, leave the town and save your game, or explore the Beginner's Guild to learn the basic functions of the game. Head straight for Figaro Castle (it's to the south in a desert). Upon arrival, be sure to visit the item and tool shops. There you should buy plenty of Tonic and the second two tools for Edgar. Talk to Edgar and explore the castle. An old guy will tell you about Edgar's brother, Sabin. After the cinema scene, return to the throne room and talk to Edgar. After the brief actions, follow Locke to a bedroom (nothing happens there you sicko!) When Kefka storms the castle, you'll escape on Chocobos. Fight the M-Tek Armors that Kefka sends at you, using Edgar's AutoCrossbow and Terra's Fire spell. Cinema time. Ride to Figaro Cave (to the southeast), and save your game. Enter the cave and be sure that you visit the recovery spring (with the turtle in it). Don't worry about the passage on the other side, you'll reach that later. Continue through a doorway, and head to your left. Decide whether you want to collect the treasures here or save them for later. If so, go upstairs and open the treasure chest. Head back down, then to your right, and down. Pick up the treasure chest in the alcove to your right. Before going up those stairs, go to your left and find the treasure chest. Then go back to the stairs, go up, head downwards, and go down another set of stairs. Exit the cave. Head southeast to South Figaro. Save your game outside, then enter. Go meet Shadow (you'll meet again after the river ride), then explore the town. There are treasures in almost every barrel and crate. Don't miss the one behind the Chocobo stable, and in the barrel on the walkway above it. Next, go into the big house at the north of the town (this is the rich man's house). In the room that's drafty, walk behind the bookshelf and down some hidden stairs. Head down the next flight. In the hallway, walk to the right, then, when it goes down, walk through the wall, then to your right down a hidden flight of stairs for some nice relics. Continue exploring the rest of the hallway for a truckload of money, then go back to the entry hallway of the rich man's house. Go through the right door (not the one you came in from), and exp- lore the barrels there. Walk behind the house to find a hidden passage, and explore that room for some goodies. There's a hidden door at the very bottom of the room. It takes you to the old cider guy's house (remember that he wants cider for later). Exit there, then go to the item, armor, and weapon shops. Buy all the equipment you need (you should have enough money), then leave the town. If you wish, you may rent a Chocobo and take it to Sabin's Cottage (north of S. Figaro), which is suggested if you want some drama. Head for Mt. Kolts (to the east). You should build your members up 2 or 3 levels outside, then use a tent, save, and enter. The enemies here are pretty strong, so, when you get the opportunity, use a tent and save. At the entrance, go behind the large rock and outside for some treasure. Go back, then head up. Check the right wall for another passage that leads to a VERY usefull Atlas Armlet. Follow the pathway (it's very linear), save your game at the designated spot, then continue until you reach Vargas. Defeat his bears, then attack him while Terra heals the party. After a while, Sabin will jump in, and the others will be blown away by one of Vargas' techniques. Fight Vargas with the Fight command (or you can perform a Blitz immediatley). When it tells you to do the Blitz, do so (duh). If you're having some trouble, see the closing remarks of this section for the easiest way to perform the Pummel Blitz. When you beat him, head out of the cave, grabbing the treasure chest on your way. Once outside, head north to the Returner Hideout. Explore it with Terra (make sure to get the treasures in the top room and its right wall for a White Cape) and see the closing remarks before you talk to Banon outside. Whether you accept his offer right away or wait has some significane in the item you receive. Locke will leave the party, and then you'll be in a group with Banon, Terra, Edgar, and Sabin. Go back into the hideout to buy some items and stop at the inn. Then head out on the river. It doesn't really matter what ways you choose to go (although if you choose right at the first intersection, you'll fight more enemies, and if you keep going to the left at the second, it'll be a USEFUL neverending loop). Make sure that you have Banon use Heal during battles, that he's in the back row, and that you save your game at every opportunity. Eventually you'll reach Ultros. Have Terra use Fire, but beware: Ultros will blind you if she does. Make Banon use Heal every time he attacks, while Sabin uses the Aura Bolt Blitz and Edgar fights or uses AutoCrossbow. You'll beat him, then Sabin will fall off the raft. Here are some tips and tactics that you may want to use: 1) In order for the Pummel Blitz to work, select Blitz from the menu, then press left, release it, press right, release it, left and 'A'. Make sure that this is done within 1 and a half seconds. 2) Make sure that you buy the NoiseBlaster and Bio Blaster. Edgar already has the AutoCrossbow in his inventory. 3) You will need plenty of Tonic, Potion, and Fenix Down. Tents are also important, but you will usually find them. The others can be found if you search in the Returner Hideout and South Figaro. 4) If you can't afford a lot of weapons and armor, at least buy the best possible stuff for Terra, as she's weak in the beginning. 5) When Banon asks Terra to help the Returners, you will receive a Gauntlet for a 'Yes' reply. However, if you choose 'No,' go back inside and to the top-most room. The person there will give you a Genji Glove, which, in my view, is much more valuable. 6) When you are controlling Terra alone in the Returner's Hideout, walk up to the very top of the table (where the meeting will take place later). Press A and you will find a piece of paper. If you throw it away, nothing different will happen. However, if you leave it there, Banon will throw it away during the meeting. This is a poorly translated piece of humor from the Japanese FF6. Also, search the injured guy's room berore the Lete River for some fun. 7) Before beginning the raft ride on the Lete River, move Banon to the back row of your party. This will reduce the damage he takes. Remember, if he dies, the game ends! ------------------------- (2) A Fork in the Road Here the story has split into 3 groups. Mog appears and asks you to choose a scenario (Kupo!). You should save your game here so that you can come back if you make a mistake. I suggest going on Locke's first, then Sabin's, and finally Terra's. Locke's Scenario ---------------- Locke's scenario can be difficult if you don't listen to the clues given by the townspeople. You must first go to the old man's house and talk to the boy downstairs. Then go to the item shop and talk to the man in the corner. You'll fight him. Steal from him for a nice Plumed Hat, and his clothes! Equip the Plumed Hat, and go back to the boy in the old man's house. He will let you through now. Explore the town for some tips, but DON'T talk to soldiers in Magitek Armor. If you wish, talk to a Green Soldier and steal his clothes, then talk to the people in the town for more info. The soldier outfit also lets you talk to other soldiers without being attacked. Remember the Cider delivery man? Go there and fight him. Steel from him for another Plumed Hat and his clothes. You'll also take his Cider. Bring this back to the old man, then go to the boy who's downstairs. The password is 'courage.' Anything else gets you beaten up! Take the hidden passage to the rich man's house, then go upstairs. In the windy room, go behind the bookshelf and follow the passage too the room where Celes is. What outfit you wear to meet her will give you various funny Star Wars references. ;) Save her, then take the guard's clock key. Go to the clock that isn't ticking and wind it for a secret passage. Enter and head right, then down, right, up, right, down, and left to a few treasure chests. Take the contents and equip them. Go back to the entrance and search along the walls for a hidden passage. Go south in the passage to some more treasure, then, about half way back in this passage, push to the left for another passage. Go downstairs and take the valuable items from the chests (don't miss the Ribbon, which is behind the north chest!). Return upstairs to the entrance, then take the other passage south. Go left for some treasure, then head right to find the exit. Leave S. Figaro and go to Figaro Cave. Make your way through until the TunnelArm comes. Defeat it by having Celes use Runic while Locke fights. Sabin's Scenario ---------------- This is the longest (and hardest) of the three scenarios. Start by visiting the cottage with the crazy old man. Although it is your choice to enlist Shadow or not, you should take him along. If you do, buy at least 30 - 50 Shurikens from the traveling merchant. Search the Imperial Camp for treasures. When you find a locked treasure chest, hit it instead of kicking it, or you'll be attacked. After fighting Kefka once, head left and up behind a tent for entry to a hidden tent. When Cyan has to fight, use the Dispatch SwdTech command (number 1). When you win the Black Belt, equip it on somebody (preferably Shadow or Sabin). You can't enter Doma Castle after it's taken over, so head straight for the Baren Falls. In the spooky forest, follow the path fighting monsters as you go. Make sure to walk up to the pond to be fully healed. There will be a strange train which you should enter and then try to leave. On the Phantom Train, head right at the start to save your game and meet the Impresario. Head to the left, collecting treasures. Let the ghost guy join you, and have him Possess an enemy. There are several easy puzzles here which involve flipping switches. There is also a treasure chest that instigates a fight with Sigfried/Zigfried/Segfried, but you can't aquire the item that he takes from you. Some of the ghosts will provide items for you to buy, while some will attack. Keep heading left to the engine room. Examine the console on the left for instructions on stopping the train. You will end up having to fight it. Use Cyan's Dispatch, Sabin's Suplex (which strangely works against a TRAIN...), and have Shadow throw the Shuriken. There will be some interesting scenes involving Cyan. When they are done, exit the station. Follow the only direction to reach Baren Falls. At the waterfall, opt to jump off. At the bottom of Baren Falls, you'll meet Gau. Head to Mobliz and buy some goods there. Make sure to buy some Dried Meat also. Fight in a battle in the Veldt and, when Gau appears, use the Dried Meat on him. Here's the appearance of the coolest imp, Kappa! Head with Gau to the Crescent Cave, and explore for a few laughs. Eventually you'll find the diving helmet. Use it to go into the Serpent Trench. When you have to decide which way to go, choosing two rights takes you to both caves, while two lefts takes you straight to Nikeah. You're better off visiting the caves, as the second one has a valuable Green Beret. Once you arrive at Nikeah, buy some goods, then take the ship to South Figaro. Terra's Scenario ---------------- This is the easiest of the scenarios. If you can't figure this one out, you really need a mental examination! All that you must do is enter the secret passage from the beginning of the game in Narshe. Follow the familiar path back to the house where Terra woke up. Just remember to say hello to the Moogles for fun. KUPO!!! ------------------------- (3) Reunited Finally together, the group doesn't have much time to think. Kefka and a squad of soldiers are on their way to claim the frozen Esper and kill Banon! Although some of the group's members are negative toward each other, they decide that they must stop the Empire at all costs. A decisive battle is about to take place. The fights shouldn't be difficult IF you use the correct attacks. Edgar should constantly use the Bio Blaster, as this can destroy an entire enemy group. Have Cyan use the Quadra Slam, while Celes and Terra fight and cure with magic. If you still are having trouble, don't worry about losing. Instead, keep fighting with Sabin's group until he learns the Fire Dance, then use that to waste the enemies. Battle Kefka with a combination of magic users and fighters. After the battle, the group goes to the Esper, where Terra morphs for the first time. Unfortunately, she goes Vallistic and flies off to the west. ------------------------- (4) The Search for Terra After Terra flys away you'll be in Narshe. Buy and equip some weapons, armor, and relics, but, if Sabin or Edgar is in your party, don't buy items. Search the town for a room filled with treasures, and remember about the locked treasure chest. You should go to Figaro Castle. There, buy tools and items. If Sabin or Edgar are at the front of your party, you get them for half price! Explore and sleep at the inn to see a few important cinema scenes (though you can do this later also). Submerge the castle from the engine room to travel across the mountain range. Head for Kohlingen. If Locke is in your party, you'll see a few cinema scenes. If you only have 3 people with you and 3000 GP, then you can enlist Shadow for a little while. If you're not in a hurry, head north to the small house where the Coliseum will be in the World of Ruin. Search the house for a valuable Hero Ring. Head south to Jidoor, where you should search the town. Then head north to Zozo. You may want to gain a few levels before you enter. Upon entering, head as far left as you can, and find the building with the stopped clock. If you talk to the inhabitants of the town and know that they mostly all lie, you can figure out the correct time to enter. If you're lazy and want it spoiled for you, set it for 6:10:50, and you'll find a passage to the valuable Chainsaw. Head down to the large tower, where you should proceed to climb it. Make sure to find every treasure chest along the way, as one holds the Thief Glove, which makes Locke use Control, allowing him to fight and steal in one turn. When you think you can't go any farther, try jumping between buildings. Continue up the tower until you fight Dadaluma. Use your strongest attacks on him, as well as Potions and Cure spells to recover your HP. When he calls reinforcements, ignore them and concentrate on him. Head upstairs to the topmost room, and look around for a few treasures, then go up to find Terra and Ramuh. ------------------------- (5) The Opera House After finding Terra, you must pick 2 people to go with Celes and Locke. Depending on your actions, Cyan may stay with Terra. If you haven't already gotten Shadow, DO NOT go back to put him in your party! If you do, he'll leave during the Opera, and you'll be stuck with 3 fighters untill after the Magitek Factory! Go back to Jidoor, and talk to everyone in the town. Then go to Owzer's house (the one farthest north), and talk to the Impresario. Read the letter and talk to the man, then head for the Opera House (it's south of Jidoor). When you arrive, enjoy the cinema scene, then go with Locke to the dressing room. When performing the opera, press A immediately on the first choice. For the second, press down, then A. On the third, press A. Go upstairs, and walk over to Draco. Follow him, and when he stops, press A as if to talk with him. Pick up the flowers, then go upstairs. Half way up, you'll stop. Press to the right, then continue up. Walk to the Valcony, and enjoy! If you don't do this quickly, you will fail and have to do the entire thing over again. With Locke, pick up the note in the room, and talk to the Impresario. Equip the Sprint Shoes (if you don't have them on), and go up and right on the Valcony. Talk to the man, then pull the far right switch. Go back to where you were sitting and head to the left, then up. When you're above the stage, try to avoid as many rats as possible. If you have to fight them, kill the yellow ones first, because they can call reinforcements. When you reach Ultros, you'll fall onto the stage, then fight him. Use your strongest moves, and he'll eventually leave. Setzer will come up. Watch the scene, and prepare for the trek through the Empire. Now wasn't that fun? ------------------------- (6) Magitek Factory When you reach Albrook, buy some new weapons, armor, and relics (the best available), then gain a few levels outside. Use the Espers to learn some magic spells, especially Cure1. You may want to go to Tzen and Maranda to find more weapons and info, but you don't need to. Head northwest from Albrook to Vector (it's the big castle). DON'T sleep at the inn. You will be swindled by a thief. Instead, go over to the small building and refuse to pledge your allegiance to the Empire. Fight the guards, and the man will heal you. Buy weapons (if you haven't already done so), dodge the soldiers in the north of town, and enter the buildings. When you think you're ready, go to the right and talk to the man behind the boxes. Climb onto the box, and shimmy over the guards while they attend to the sick man to get into the factory. Make sure Celes has a sword, because you will want to use Runic here. Explore the first room thoroughly, you should find 2 or 3 treasures. Climb into the left pipe, and go downstairs. Remember, there are a lot of treasures here. Try pressing against the far southern walls, and you will find doors leading to a few treasures. Equip all of the Flame and Thunder equipment that you find, and look for Kefka. Jump off where Kefka threw the two creatures. Make sure that you are fully healed at this point. Talk to the left creature and you will enter a fight. For Ifrit, use strong Ice attacks, and use Fire attacks on Shiva. They'll turn into Magicite. Go through the left door, use a tent, and save your game
(by the way, have Locke steal from the soldiers around here to get tents). Go back through the door, and go into the right one this time. Go all the way up the stairs, fighting enemies on the way. Search the room with several Esper Processing Chambers for the Break Blade. It is hidden out of view. Go throug the next doorway to fight #024. It is difficult to hurt him with magic (he changes what he is weak against when he glows), so use primarily fighting attacks. Sabin's Aura Bolt and Cyan's Dispatch techniques work best if they are in your party. Go up through the door and talk to Cid. Watch the cinema scene, then follow Cid. Use a tent and save your game before you talk to Cid again. In the mine cart ride use strong fighting techniques plus Ice and Fire spells on the Mag Roaders. When you fight #128, attack the body, not the arms, with strong Ice and Thunder attacks. Save your game when you are outside, and talk to Setzer. Once back on the airship, you will have to fight some Cranes. Use strong magic (you might want to Scan to see what they're weak against), and Setzer's Slot. If the Slot lands on 3 diamonds, you'll probably win the fight easily. ------------------------- (7) To the Sealed Gate You get to control the airship here. Fly to Narshe. Remember the locked treasure chest? Go to that house and follow Lone Wolf to where the Esper is (at the cliff). He will grab a Moogle to use as a hostage. When he tells you not to step forward, stand still. Mog wrestles free, but both will almost fall of the cliff. You only have time to save one. If you save Mog, he joins your party (kupo)! If you save Lone Wolf, you get a Gold Hairpin, which cuts in half the magic needed for the wearer to cast spells. I STRONGLY suggest taking Mog. You may want to fight with him in forests, plains, and other backgrounds until he learns his dances. See the "A Few Tips and Secrets" section for info on getting the Water Rondo dance. When you're ready, fly to the Imperial Base. Nobody will be there. Don't bother searching the building as everything inside is locked up right now. Exit on the right side. Save here before you do anything else. Go across the bridge and to the cave. You'll find a valuable treasure at the beginning, so take it. When you reach the room with moving bridges, make your way to the treasure chest on the little island. It holds the Coin Toss, which lets Setzer kill the enemy with money. Follow the route, and, when you pull a switch that makes you hear a distant sound, backtrack to reach a treasure chest. After fighting a Ninja (when you pull a switch), head right and down, then hold A and walk around on the bluff. You'll find many hidden treasures here; apparently they are the 'prize under the staircase' that he is talking about. When you reach the area with 2 switches on the floor, DON'T step on either of them. Instead, pass the first one, then go up the right bridge. Pull the switch in the chest, and go downstairs, then down again. Go to your left to the little raised piece of ground, and step on the switch. It will open a cave with the VERY valuable Atma Weapon in it. Equip it on Terra only if she has a rather high HP count at this point. Keep going to the right, until you eventually reach the Sealed Gate. Hit Kefka once, and enjoy the show! When it's over, exit the cave through the new passage that is created. You should be able to easily reach the airship. ------------------------- (8) Search for the Espers The airship crashes. Go and talk to the people in Maranda. They have new things to say. Head to Vector, and go up to the castle. You'll talk to Gesthal and Cid. Before the banquet begins, you will be sent on a small mission. Talk to as many soldiers as possible. You may have to fight some. DON'T talk to Kefka, as he takes away from your time to talk to soldiers. When you have talked to 24 soldiers, wait out the timer. During the banquet, be as courteous and polite as possible when talking. Refer to the Miscellaneous Info section for what should be said during the conference. Go to the Imperial Base if the door was opened as there are a few goodies to find there now. If you want to see a special cinema scene at this point, head back to the airship and talk to Setzer. When you're ready to move on, go to Albrook. Go to the ship and enjoy the cinema scene where Celes is reunited with the group. Afterwards, sleep at the inn for free for yet another cinema scene. Go back to the ship, and you'll set sail. When you reach Crescent Island, head north to Thamasa. Press A next to the barrels and boxes for some prizes, and by new weapons and armor. Some of the relics are also useful. Explore until you find Strago and Relm in one of the houses. Sleep at the inn and when you awake go to the burning house. Enter with Strago. If you have it, equip Strago with the Ice Rod, and use Ice and the Aqua Rake spells on your enemies. Try to avoid the fireValls, and eventually you'll reach a big FireVall. Defeat him with Ice2 and Aqua Rake. Shadow will save the day when all looks bleak. After finishing, see if there's any equipment you couldn't afford before at the shops, then head for the Crescent Cave. Save outside and go up a few levels. Take the treasure chest immediately to your left at the entrance, then head up and right, through the door. When you're outside, work your way to the left, and into another cave. Pick up any treasure, and you'll eventually reach the 3 Golden Statues. Along comes that pesky octopus again. When fighting Ultros, use the strongest fire attacks possible, and, when Relm joins you, have her sketch Ultros. You'll win (for now), and head out the left door. Save when you have the chance, and, when you see 3 tiles on the ground, step on the upper-left one. Go out the door and collect the treasure, then go back inside and upstairs. Fall through the upper-right one, and continue until there's a cinema scene. When in Thamasa, watch the action. Kefka will do some evil, and when you wake up, you will be General Leo. Don't try exiting Thamasa at all as you cannot defeat the Guardians stationed at the outskirts. Fight Kefka with General Leo; it should be easy. Unfortunately, Leo is killed by Kefka. You will watch the sad burial. Board the airship when the party comes, and watch the cinema scene. ------------------------ (9) The Floating Continent After Thamasa, fly to Doma Castle (if it was freed), and, if you wish, South Figaro. Gain several levels (you'll need to for the upcoming battles), and save somewhere. Board the airship, and choose to look for the Floating Continent. You'll battle the IAF, which consists of several battalions of enemies. This can be pretty tough if you haven't advance your levels, so be sure to cure between battles. Eventually you'll face off with Ultros and his friend, Chupon. Use fire attacks on Ultros, and all of your strong ice and special attacks on Chupon. Chupon will eventually sneeze you away, and you'll fall. You'll fight a machine on your way down! Concentrate on the body itself, and destroy the little machines it releases that absorb magic. You have to hurry, because when the countdown ends, you'll be fried! You'll end up on the Floating Continent. Talk to Shadow and he'll join your group. Make sure to save your game so that you don't have to face the IAF again. The battles here are tough, so you should have Shadow throw Shurikens and Ninja Stars, as well as different Skeans. When you think you've reached a dead end, try pressing against the wall. Basically, you should make your way to the right, collecting the blue orbs (treasure chests). Don't miss the Masamune, or any other treasures. When you find a save place (haven't seen one of those for a while), use a tent and save. Soon you'll have the option to go back to the airship or continue onwards. You really should keep going unless you are short on supplies or have unfinished business, in which case leave now or forever hold your peace. Fight the Atma Monster using very strong ice spells, and all of your best attacks. Cure2 is imperative to your survival, so make sure somebody has learned it by now. You should be victorious if you pound away. When you win, head up and enjoy the long cinema scene. Shadow will trap Kefka between the statues, and a timer will come up. Hurry to your right. If you have the Charm Bangle, equip it now. There may be some blue orbs, but don't bother trying to get them now. When you defeat the enemy at the glowing star, continue going right. At the edge it asks if you want to jump to the airship or wait; your decision here is very important. Choose wait, move back a step, and step forward. Now choose to wait for Shadow. If you don't, you can't get him later!!! At about 5 seconds left, Shadow will come, and you'll escape. Enjoy the splendor of the end of the world! ------------------------ (10) What You Should Have Done By Now By now you should have found the 12 normal characters. You will have 11 if you didn't save Mog. If you neglected Mog, you'll have to wait for another chance to find him. By now your characters should be at least at level 25, that being the minimum. Sabin should have learned the Fire Dance (maybe the next one also), and Cyan should know the Quadra Slam. Make sure that you found the Atma Weapon before this point, or you won't be able to get it. You could live without this weapon, but it eventually becomes one of the best weapons in the game. ------------------------ (11) A Few Tips and Secrets If you want to gain levels quickly, then you should stay near the beginning of the Floating Continent. The enemies here can be defeated, and they give you a lot of experience. If it's magic you want, go to the Triangle Island (upper left corner of map). Defeat the invisible Intangir by casting Doom, but beware: it will cast a powerful spell on the person who kills it. Have your party above 1000 HP each. Alternately, use the loop on the Lete River that is listed in the misc. section of this FAQ. If you think that the Atma Weapon is faulty or doesn't work, that's because it gains power as you gain HP. The more HP you have, the stronger it is. Remember, if you're low on HP, it will hardly do anything. Terra's Morph will last longer at higher levels, and if you go many battles without using it. Many people wonder how to get two of Mog's dances; the Water Rondo and the Snowman Jazz. The Snowman Jazz can be found in the World of Ruin only, but the Water Rondo MUST be learned in the World of Balance. The W. Rondo is, in fact, Mog's strongest dance. To acquire it, form a group with Mog in it. Land the airship at Nikeah, and rent a Chocobo. Ride it all the way to Baren Falls, and hop off. Jump the falls, and go all the way to the Serpent Trench, and jump in. Fight a water enemy without dancing and you'll learn the Water Rondo! You'll end up in Ni- keah, right next to your airship! An alternate, longer route is to take the raft down the Lete River with Mog. The Serpent Tre- nch is much faster, though. To save Shadow on the Floating Continent, during the destr- uction, wait instead of jumping onto the ship. Step forward, then choose to wait for Shadow. If you stand there until only 5 seconds are left, he'll come and you'll leave together. In Mobliz, it is possible to get a valuable Tintinabar. Talk to the injured soldier, and read the letter on the desk. Go to the house in the center of town and send something in the mail. After going back and forth and spending a lot of money on mail, the soldier will give you a Tintinabar! Many of the treasure chests in the WOB can be found in the WOR (as long as the level they were in is still accessible). If you leave treasure chests, then open them in the WOR, they will contain better items! This holds true particullarly for treasures in the Narshe Caves and the Magitek Factory... ***THE WORLD OF RUIN WALKTHROUGH*** (1) Stranded on a Deserted Island This is a very short part of the story, but can also be very dramatic. You will be alone as Celes. Cid is your only companion, and he is becoming ill from a year of being stranded. To pick up fish for Cid, go to the beach south of the house and press A next to a fish. Remember: the faster the fish, the healthier it is. There are 4 types of fish: Rotten Fish, Fish, Just a Fish, and Yummy Fish. Each one can be seen in the Rare items list. If you feed Cid 10 Yummy Fish (the very fast moving ones), he'll live! If you take to long to catch the fish, or if you feed him Rotten Fish, Cid will die, and Celes will almost commit suicide. Either way, you will set sail using a raft that Cid made. Remember where the Solitary Island is for later in the game. ------------------------ (2) Search for The Others You will arrive on a new body of land. Head north to Albrook and talk to the people to learn of the World of Ruin. You'll hear about several key story elements: the 8 dragons, Phunbaba, and Doom Gaze, as well as Kefka's reign of terror. Buy new equipment (you'll need it) and sleep at the inn. When you leave town, head north past Kefka's Tower and through a desert. Eventually you'll reach Tzen. Save outside, and when you enter, a disaster hits. Go the inn for HP and MP if you must, then go up to Sabin. Enter the house, taking the treasures, and head to the left. Go downstairs, and up to the long landing. The child should be above the fireplace. Take it outside, and Sabin will join you. Buy equipment for him if you must, then save outside. Go northwest and find a small forest. In the middle, rent a Chocobo and go south. Go east across a bridge and follow the green trail that was once the Serpent Trench to Mobliz. It has been pretty much destroyed. Sleep at the house you find and talk to Terra. You'll fight Phunbaba, who can be stopped by strong ice spells, the poison and bio spells, and the Suplex Blitz. Terra won't join you yet, but you can't give up now. ------------------------ (3) Edgar! After the fight with Phunbaba, head south to a forest where you can rent a Chocobo. Follow the Serpent Trench past the Fanatics' Tower and to the town of Nikeah. Talk to the thieves at the inn, and, when they leave, go outside and talk to Gerard (he looks like Edgar). Follow Gerard into the ship, and, at South Figaro, locate him at the inn. Buy new weapons, armor, relics, and items at the town, then leave. Go to Figaro Cave to the northeast. Follow Gerard, the thieves, and the Sigfried impostor to the Recovery Spring. Remember that opening on the other side? Jump on the turtle and enter it. It leads to Figaro Castle. If you search the cave, you may find Sigfried, but he runs away. Go to the engine room and down the stairs that you couldn't enter before. Collect the treasures, and find the engine. Gerard will reveal himself to indeed be Edgar and you'll collectively fight the Tentacles. It is a good idea to have relics protecting you from poison and berserk, as well as Running Shoes to negate the effects of slow. Have Celes cast Regen on everyone as soon as possible. Each Tentacle gets injured by different magic. Have Edgar use the Chainsaw, Flash, or Drill, Sabin use the Aura Bolt, and Celes use magic to cure or runic. When you win, go through the door and press A by the statue for the Soul Sabre. Go back the way you came, and the engineer will make the castle go to Kohlingen. Buy the new items and tools in the castle at half price by putting Edgar or Sabin in the front of your party. Head out for Kohlingen. ------------------------ (4) A New Airship When you find Setzer in the cafe of Kohlingen, he'll join you. Buy new equipment from the shops. Equip Setzer with either the Dice or the Trump. Go to Daryll's Tomb and save outside. From the beginning, go down stairs and to the right. Go up through the door, and press A on the tombstone. A door will open, which you should go through. Flip the switch at the top of the room and the water will go down. Return to the main hallway and go down. Keep going and collect the treasure chest. Once again go to the main hallway, only go all the way to the left and down (if you REALLY want to solve the tombstone puzzle, go down the center twice, and read each of the tombstones. Go to the main hallway, into the upper-left door, and put in THE WORLD IS SQUARE backwards). Go down the next set of stairs and collect the chest to your right. Move against the right wall and you'll find a hidden passage that leads to a treasure chest that contains the valuable Experience Egg. This doubles the experience earned of whoever has it equipped, so use it wisely. Go back through the passage and in the door to the north. Walk across the water and flip the switch. You'll see a door open. Return to the main hallway and go down through the center door. Flip the switch, then jump on the turtle. It'll take you to the door, which you should go through. Open up the right chest, than use a tent and save your game. You'll have to fight a dangerous enemy in the left chest, but, once defeated, he yields 1 or 2 powerful Fire Claws for Sabin. Save your game again, then go through the northern door. Walk up to the casket to fight Dullahan. Have Sabin use Blitzes and the Fire Claw, Setzer use the Dice and Slot, Celes cast Fire and Cure spells, and Edgar use the Chainsaw or Drill. It shouldn't be difficult. When done, go up through the door and enjoy the cinema scene. You'll take off in the new airship. NOTE: From this point on, the main objective is to find all of your party members. This can pretty much be done in any order, with a few exceptions. There are also a few side quests that allow you to collect very valuable items. At any point you can go to Kefka's Tower, although it is advised to gain levels before you do so. Many people don't like the openness of this point in the game; the story pretty much revolves around single character elements. However, it is still rather enjoyable. If you want to fully understand each character, you should spend time with their little subquests (Hidon, Doma Castle, Gau's home...). The path is really up to you. ------------------------ (5) Cyan's Grievances When you first take off in the new airship, you'll see a bird, and follow it to Maranda. In the house in the upper-right, a girl says she's been receiving letters from her love in Mobliz, but you know that he's dead. The handwriting on the letter is that of Cyan. Take the girl's next letter to the carrier pigeon, and watch as it flys to Zozo. After flying to Zozo, talk to the man that told the truth the first time (he's up and to the right of the big tower) and he'll give you info and Rust-rid. Go into the Cafe and find the rusty door which will now become unrusted. Go through the passage to end up on Mt. Zozo. Make your way through the first room, making sure to collect the treasures. In the second room, use a tent and save your game, then step on the switch to your upper-right. This will release one of the 8 dragons from a treasure chest. If you are weak, you can save this fight for later. Otherwise, fight it using your strongest abilities. You should win. Continue climbing the mountain until you find Cyan. Enjoy the cinema scene. When it's done, you can go to where Cyan was and get the key to open his treasure chest. Open the chest and take his books, although they don't really do anything. Make your way out of Zozo or use a Warp Stone (or Warp magic), and fly back to Maranda with Cyan in your group. Talk to the townspeople again. ------------------------ (6) Face to Face With Phunbaba By this time you can check back on Terra in Mobliz. When you do, you'll notice that she's gone. Go into the house where Duane is and follow the dog into a secret passage behind the bookcase. There's an ERikksir hidden in one of the pots. You'll have to fight Phunbaba again here, so make sure that you're healed up. Use the same tactics as when you fought him before. Midway through, Terra will morph and join you in the fight. Phunbaba's life resets at this point. It should be easy with Terra's magic skills. Terra will rejoin the party, and you can now continue your adventure. ------------------------ (7) To the Veldt! Short chapter! Anyway, all you have to do is fight a battle in the Veldt with 3 people in your party. Gau will rejoin you and will have learned a few new Rages. If you wish, you may take him and Sabin to the house in the northwest. There Gau will meet his father. It's both funny and a tear-jerker. ------------------------ (8a) Save Shadow Note: You can only save Shadow if you waited for him back on the Floating Continent!!! This is a split scenario. If you waited for Shadow on the Floating Continent, he will be waiting in the Veldt Cave. Go there and follow Interceptor. BE SURE to open EVERY treasure chest in the cave, or you may miss the valuable Striker!!! Eventually you'll find Shadow lying on the ground (it's after a save location). Be ready, because you'll have to battle two powerful Behemoths! Use Ice magic, and you shouldn't have trouble. However, get ready! Just after beating the first, its ghost will trap you from behind! This one is easy. Just use the item `Revivify' \ on it to kill it in one hit. When you do defeat the monster, you'll take Shadow to Thamasa. (NOTE: Ignore the fact that they mention him with 'she.' This was just bad coding, as you can also rescue Relm here in an alternate fashion) After sleeping at the inn, he'll disappear, having gone to the Coliseum. Make sure to search the left wall of Strago's house (upstairs) for another Memento Ring. Head far west to the Coliseum. You'll hear about a man dressed in black searching for a Striker. Bet the Striker (you should have found it in the cave), and you'll fight Shadow (even though it says Shadow Chupon). You'll easily defeat him, and he'll join your party for the rest of the game. ------------------------ (8b) Save Relm No matter if you saved her in the cave or saved Shadow instead, Relm will end up at Owzer's House (it is located at the top of Jidoor). Head to Jidoor and up to the large house there. After trying to go up the stairs, read Owzer's Diary. Press A on the lamp (near the stairs), then go up. If you wish, fight the flower portrait. Look at the picture of Geshtahl twice for a clue about the Phoenix Cave. Then look at the woman's portrait. When you defeat the enemy, enter the door that appears. Follow the path (some of the portraits do things, so watch out), and, when you find 3 doors on 1 wall, walk behind the wall and press A for the valuable Relic Ring (makes Doom/Poison cure, and Cure/Life injure). Go through the left-most door. If you wish, stand under the floating chests to fight an enemy. You have to go to each one in a certain order. Then go through the door. Save your game and go through the right door (the left is a trap). Fight the Spirit Chadarnook, using strong fire attacks on the demon form. You may want to cast Regen on everyone, because one of his moves damages everyone over time. He'll transform, and, in doing so, change what he takes damage from. After winning (it may take awhile), Relm will join your party. ------------------------ (9) Strago and Ebot's Rock Having saved Relm, take her to the Fanatics' Tower. A very confused Strago will be marching with some Kefka Worshippers, but will snap out of his trance when he sees Relm. Take both of them to Thamasa, and, after a cinema scene, buy some equipment and head to Ebot's Rock. Enter the cave and talk to the chest. Using the transporters, find 22 or more pieces of coral, then bring them back to the chest. The chest will move out of the way, and you can face Hidon. Take Strago along, and kill off the little Hidonites first. This will cause Hidon to use Grand Train (which Strago will learn afterwards). Keep attacking with Fire and Cure attacks and eventually Hidon will fall. Hopefully you got him to cast Grand Train, which is one of Strago's best Lore attacks. Enjoy the cinema scene. If you DIDN'T learn Grand Train, fear not; all is not lost. Talk to Gungho in Thamasa until he says, "Hidon hasappeared at Ebot's Rock again!" Go back to Ebot's Rock, feed the chest, and you can face Hidon again. Do this as often as you want. ------------------------ (10) Mog Lives! Take your airship to Narshe. Ignore the fact that the doors are locked until you find Locke later on. Remember the Moogle Village? Well, return there by going through the Narshe Caves. Mog will be there, and he'll join you. Search where he was standing for the Moogle Charm (avoids random enemy fights). Take Mog with you and head north through the caves where you started the game. In the snowy area where you fought Kefka you will find the Ice Dragon. Simply use Fire attacks to kill it quickly. Fight another enemy in the area and you'll learn the Snowman Jazz dance for Mog. Go to the frozen Esper Tritoch and fight it. Use strong weapon attacks and Fire magic. When you thaw it out, you will receive its Magicite, and the cliff will break. Have Mog in your party and jump off the now open cliff. Follow the cave's route, picking up treasure chests along the way. It is a puzzle that shouldn't take long once you realize where the ground breaks away. Beware of the chest that contains the Pugs, as they are very deadly. Come back to them later. You'll eventually reach a room with a bone carving. Take the Magicite from it and Umaro the sasquatch will fight you. Defeat him with powerful attacks, and, after beating him, Mog will forcibly make him join your party (they are friends). If Mog isn't in your party, be sure to bring him to Umaro. This is a good time to take care of the Earth Dragon. Fly to the Opera House, where you will hear of a dragon on the stage. Go to the switch room and flip the third switch from the left. This will cause you to fall onto the stage. When you fight the Earth dragon, make sure that you equip everyone with a Cherub Down relic (which you can buy in Jidoor). This will alow you to float, avoiding the dragon's deadly quake attacks and prevent him from negating the effect. Defeating him will then be simple. ------------------------ (11) Phoenix Cave Head to the Pheonix Cave, which, as Gestahl's portrait told you, is hidden in the center of the star-shaped mountain range. Fly over it and you will drop down to the entrance, breaking up into two parties. If you want to make this area very easy, have Mog in one of your parties and equip him with the Moogle Charm. If you want to rough it and face tough enemies, by all means do not use his relic. You may also want to have Umaro because of his immunity to fire attacks thanks to the Snow Muffler. Follow the maze's twists and turns, and notice how most of the chests are empty. Look carefully at the ground for difficult-to-see switches. It is required that both parties flip switches so that others can advance further into the cave. You'll eventually end up at the Fire Dragon (make sure to save your game beforehand). Fight the dragon, or, if you're weak, save it for later. Use strong ice attacks against the beast to make quick work of it. Afterwards, go back up and stand on the switch to make a set of rocks appear. Have the other party leap across using the rocks, then head down with both parties. Have each stand on one of the 2 switches, and the raised land will lower. Follow the path and you'll at last find Locke. Enjoy the long cinema scene, then take Locke to Narshe. Search the weapon shop and the northern shop for the Ragnarok Sword/Esper and Cursed Shield. I suggest you take the Esper, or read the Secrets section for another way to learn Ultima involving uncursing the shield. ------------------------ (12) Fanatics' Tower Go to the Fanatics' Tower. In this tower you cannot normally fight, so be sure to come with your strongest magic users (or, if you wish, include Umaro; his Berserk-like state allows him to attack. However, his inability to heal your other party members may be your downfall). If you are lazy and don't want to fight anyone, or you want to get the treasures present beforehand, use Mog's Moogle Charm. You may wish to learn a lot of magic before entering. Especially make sure that everyone knows Osmose so that they can replenish their MP in fights. Equip someone with the Siren Esper, and have somebody know Life3. Berserk also helps. It is also suggested to know the Ultima spell, as it will wipe out even the toughest of enemies in a few attacks. Equip strong magic-defending equipment, such as Force Armor and the Force Shield. Use the Siren Esper to perform an almost 100% working Mute attack, which debilitates any of the strong magic that enemies use. Fight your way to the first treasure room and take the treasure. Then move to the right of the chest, walk up, and press A. You'll here a noise. Go out the room and downstairs to the new door. Enter and take the Air Anchor (one of Edgar's Tools). Then continue your journey up the tower. If you fight a Magic Barrel, DON'T KILL IT. Instead, let it heal you until it runs away. You'll fight a Dragon higher in the tower. The fight should be easy with the Ultima spell. At the top of the tower, take the Gem Box and equip it on the strongest magic user. Be prepared for what is probably the most annoying boss of the game. When you fight the Magi Master, cast Life3 on as many people as possible (but at least one). The Magi Master changes what he can be hurt by magicwise, but, if you have the Berserk spell, cast it on him immediately to keep him from changing. It will be a tough, long battle. However, if you have the Ultima spell, it shouldn't take too long. If you cast Life3 on somebody, then you'll win even after he uses Ultima as a final attack. Alternately, you can use Rasp and Osmose to gradually wear down his 50,000 MP. Once he runs out there is pretty much nothing that he can do (including the final casting of Ultima). Now head back down the tower (easier said than done, unless you have the Moogle Charm equipped). ------------------------ (13) Cyan's Dream Fly to Doma Castle. Make sure that you have Cyan in your party. Upon arriving, strange things will happen and your group will be seperated. Walk through the various doors until you find your two other group members. You should be able to make it as far as the Three Dream Stooges easily. Kill the flying one first, as that one can cast Life on the others. Once he's down, the rest should be easy. After that, you'll continue through Cyan's mind. You will find yourself back on the Phantom Train. The puzzles are much like they were the first time around. When you find the Lump of Metal, go up to the moving chest and press A to put the metal in the chest, stopping it (you won't lose it, though). Flip the switch and study the chests' patter. When you find another group of six chests later, enter the same pattern and flip the switch to move on. Eventually you will wind up in Magitek Armor. Go down, then to the right. Enter the cave, than walk outside. Fall through the bridge. In Doma Castle, save your game, and feel free to walk around, witnessing Cyan's memories of his family. Head to the throne room and fight Wrexsoul. When he enters someone's body, either kill each other off one at a time until he appears, or use Life3 on everyone and kill the party. After that, use Vanish/X-Zone if you are a cheap coward, or use strong fire attacks. DO NOT use X-Zone if you want to collect a valuable Pod Bracelet. Either way, you'll end up with a nifty Aura sword for Cyan, and he'll learn the final few SwdTech attacks! Go back the throne room when you wake up and collect the Alexander Esper. ------------------------ (14) Ancient Castle Take your strongest party and fly to Figaro Castle. Inside, you should rest and buy supplies, then ask the engineer to submerge the castle. On your way back to the large desert, you'll bump into something. Tell the engineer that you'd like to stop and search, then head to the jail. Enter the open jail cell, and you'll be in a large cave. Be sure to pick up the treasures in the first room, then enter the right-most door near the bottom of the screen. Open the treasure chest and be ready to fight the Master Pugs! If you win, you'll get the powerfull Graedus sword! After winning this battle, head to the left and through the wall (it is fake), then down a ladder below you. Head left, and keep walking along the bottom of the room, then climb up a ladder. Go up and to the left through a doorway. Search the bottom of this new room for two treasure chests, then go down the set of stairs. Save at the save point, and continue left and up. Enjoy the sequence that reveals the past of the Ancient Castle, then enter the main doorway. Fight your way to the throne room and walk to the very top of the screen. Talk to the stone statuete of Odin for his Magicite. Enter an archway (the first one on the left), and open the chest for Umaro's valuable Blizzard Orb. Go back into the throne room and head to the right and down into a hidden doorway. Press A next to the sparkling image on the shelf for a book. The man in Figaro's library (if you go back) will now reveal a secret. Otherwise, here is what he tells you: go 5 steps down from the queen's throne in the Ancient Castle. Do so, and press A. You'll hear a noise. Go back to the right and into the Ancient Castle library to find a new staircase. Go down it and talk to the queen's statue to transform the Odin Magicite into Raiden. (NOTE: be aware that the Odin magicite is the only one that provides and agility bonus at level up, and after the transformation it will be gone forever) Fight the dragon then go to the castle courtyard. Walk left and into the double doors. Open the treasure chest and fight a tough enemy for the awesome Offering Relic. Go back into the courtyard, but this time go right. Walk into a crack in the wall and open the chest. Now you can FINALLY get out of here. ------------------------ (15) Finding That Mimic When on Triangle Island (it is in the upper-right of the world map), fight the Zone Eater (the only enemy there). Don't kill it. Instead have everyone be engulfed. You'll find yourself in a cave. On the bridges, don't touch the green guys or you'll be knocked off (although there are some handy treasures if you fall down there). Make sure to get the Fake Mustache (changes Sketch into Control). Work your way past the deadly falling ceiling room (stand under the small openings to avoid being crushed), and you'll eventually find Gogo. ------------------------ (16) Kefka's Tower Oh no! You have to split up into 3 groups! The pain! The horror! Actually, it shouldn't be that difficult if you're near level 50. This tower is made out of pieces from other areas of the game and new areas. Basically, work your way through the hordes of enemies. If you're going for the Crusader Esper and the valuable Merton spell, defeat the 2 Dragons here. You'll have to fight Atma and a machine. Fight the 3 statues, saving after each victory. Make sure to equip the Sky Render on Cyan and the Aura Lance on either Mog or Edgar. Now you can head for Kefka. Enjoy the overdramatic cinema scene, equip all of your characters, then fight. Use Pearl, Ultima, and basically the strongest magic possible on all of his lower minions. If you have a Genji/Offering combo, this really shouldn't be a tough battle at all. One of the parts will cast Doom on someone at the end of a fight, so you may lose one character (that is okay; after each round, dead characters are replaced by alternates). There are also valuable items to steal which can then be equipped through the Item menu. Have somebody cast Life3 for the battle with Kefka, as he casts Fallen One, which makes your HP go down to a measly 1 pont. It shouldn't be toodifficult at all. Enjoy the lengthy ending. ------------------------ (17) Did You Get These Elusive Items? Chainsaw - put in 6:10:50 at the clock in Zozo. Air Anchor - press A right of the treasure chest, first room Fanatics' Tower. Go downstairs. Soul Sabre - statue in treasure room, engine area of Figaro Castle. Drainer - chest in falling house, Tzen. Illumina - wager the Ragnarok Sword at Collosseum. Only if you took the sword. Tiger Fangs - hidden room, Veldt Cave. Imp Halberd - win from Tyrannosaur. Imp Armor - steal from Tyrannosaur. Marvel Shoes - wager Rename Card at Coliseum. Merit Award - wager Cat Hood at Coliseum. ------------------------ (18) A Few More Tips and Secrets How do you gain levels fast? Well, try fighting in the for- est north of the Veldt. There you fight Tyrannosaurs, which give you a ton of experience. You may also occasionally fight the Brachosaur. The best place for Gold AND Magic Points is in the desert south of Maranda. There you fight the Cactrot, which gives you 10 Magic Points and 10,000 GP. In the forest north of the Veldt (where you fight Tyrannosaurs), you'll occasionally fight the dangerous Brachosaur. This fearsome beast can cast Ultima! However, when you defeat it, there's a chance of receiving the VERY valuable Economizer. This awesome relic lowers all spells (and that includes Lore attacks) to only 1 MP! This, by the way, makes the game almost too easy. Use this only if you want the rest of the game to be a cakewalk using the sick Gem Box/Economizer combo. To learn Sabin's Bum Rush Blitz, bring Sabin to Duncan's House. It is hidden on the same continent as Narshe near a cross of trees. Gee, Duncan bears an uncanny resemblance to Banon. Read nothing into that, though. Taking the Ragnarok Esper allows you to learn the powerful spell Ultima! It has the power of FF2's Meteo, if not stronger. Alternatively, take the Ragnarok Sword. Wager it at the Colloseum for the Illumina, the Legendary Sword. This is probably the best sword in the game (unless you count the Atma Weapon with 9999 HP). To face Doom Gaze, you must fly around in your ship until he attacks. Remember that he can't regenerate his HP after battle, so if you keep fighting him, he'll eventually die. DO NOT use Vanish/X-Zone on him, as by doing so you won't receive the Bahamut Esper. Vanish/Doom, on the other hand, works just fine... if you like that sort of thing. Many people wonder where the MegaRikkser is. Well, there are 3 that appear normally throughout the game: one after beating the Magi Master, another in Kefka's Tower, and one when you steal from Kefka. However, to get unlimited MegaRikksers, try casting Stop on the scorpion beastes in the desert of the Solitary Island, then stealing from them. To un-curse the Cursed Shield, fight with it in 255 battles. I suggest using a Ribbon to stop most of its dangerous effects. After the battles it will become the Paladin Shield, which is the most powerful shield in the game! It absorbs all elemental attacks, has a near 50% evade rate, a VERY high defense rate, and even teaches you Ultima! Of course, you can also trade the Cursed Shield in for a Cursed Ring at the Coliseum. After 255 battles with this, you will get... NOTHING! This item DOES NOT uncurse, although there appear to be some cases where it does eventually become a Hero Ring. There is no, I repeat, NO PALADIN RING IN THIS GAME. So, how do you get the Cursed Ring without losing the Cursed Shield? Well, try fighting the Veterans or the Didalos of Kefka's Tower. They can be found in either of the rooms where you normally fight the 2 dragons. It may take awhile, but you'll get a Cursed Ring after a fight. You can also try using the Ragnarok Esper on them, although this is rarely succesful without a huge magic level. Thanks and Happy FF6ing! ^_^ -King Kung --------------------------------------------------------------- PART TWO-Monster List --------------------------------------------------------------- By SethWHardy Edited by GWS Wizard, JonN2002 and King Kung NOTE FROM KUNG: As of this writing, I do not know if Seth is still a member of the Internet community, but you should all be greatfull for this list. If you want to know what you will likely get from Stealing, use this list, or if you are fighting a particularly tough enemy, most of their statistics, such as HP, MP, and even weaknesses, can be found here. Seth certainly did an excellent job. I believe their is one missing character here, Chupon, and I'm always planning to get it's data but never do. The reason? You can't really beat him usually before he blows you away. And no, his Coliseum appearances really don't count; he's more of a placeholder there for weak items, though he CAN be beaten. ANOTHER NOTE: The Bestiary found on the Anthology disk describes each enemy, shows their picture, shows what can be stolen from them, and even goes on to list _every stat_ for _every enemy_! I may update this chart with those addtions. KEY: MONSTER NAME-The name of the monster as it appears in the game. MONSTER'S LEVEL-Useful for using spells that pertain to levels. MONSTER'S HP-How many Hit Points the monster has. MONSTER'S MP-How many Magic Points the monster has. MONSTER'S WEAK POINTS-What types of damage the monster is part- iculary vulnerable to.

You can't manually use these items from the menu, they are activated automatically in the game or are there mearly to be viewed. There has been a lot of controversy over how many rare items actually exist in FF6. Well, according to our notes and what we've seen, there are thirteen rare items that have been found in the normal game, without using the Game Genie. The others can not be found ANYWHERE, period. They were most likely items that did nothing or originally served a purpose but were taken out of the game. Also, the books serve no puropse. AT ALL. Really. They do not make Cyan stronger or even increase the power of Edgar's tools. That is a bunch of Valogna, yet another rumor that got out of control. Books Simple book of machinery...And "Book of Secrets"... Cider Cider, taken from a merchant Coral Piece of coral, found in the cave near Ebot's Rock. Fish Just a fish Fish Fish Fish A yummy fish Fish A rotten fish *Lola's Letter I'm doing fine. Hope you come visit soon... Lump of Metal A heavy weight, Put it into a chest, and... Old Clock-Key An old clock-key, found on a soldier. Pendant A pendant worn by the girl who pilots the MagiTek Armor Royal Letter At a star-shaped mountain range... Rust-Rid Rust solvent **Autograph An opera singer's autograph. **Glass A magnifying glass with a peculiar lense... **Opera Record A scratched record... **Rock A strange stone emitting an eerie glow... **Stone An invisible stone... **???? A delicate golden feather.

(Kefka included!) If the following regimen is followed precisely, the four characters you choose to concentrate on should be unstoppable, monster characters! Enjoy, and happy killing! FOUR-STEP PLAN FOR CREATING AN ULTIMATE TEAM: (1) Step One: Fight, fight, fight! Select three powerful characters (I prefer Terra, Celes, and Edgar or Locke, but it doesn't matter too much), and equip them with Paladin Shields, and the best weapons and armor in the game. Equip each with an esper that raises stats SIGNIFICANTLY upon level gain (i.e., Bahamut or Palidor, and most of the ones found in the WOR, etc.). Next, go to the forest north of the Veldt (near Gau's father's house) and fight the Tyrannosaurs and Brachosaurs AD NAUSEAM! Before long, these fearsome three should evolve into your finest warriors, and you are one step closer to the ultimate party! (Note: for best results, I strongly suggest using a Game Genie to get several Illuminas and Paladin Shields for each character). (2) Step Two: Perfect and Specialize Take the time to learn EVERY technique and skill, including ALL magic spells for each of your three master characters. Practice each skill, including magic, and equip the following relics and weapons combinations wherever possible to perfect the "edge" of each fighter: Terra: I prefer a Genji Glove and Offering, coupled with an Atma Weapon and an Illumina sword in each hand. Nix the shield after she learns the Ultima spell. Trust me... she blocks almost every hit without the armor bonus, and can slam foes for 8-hits a round, each at 9999 or close to it. Edgar: No question about it: this is your standard equipment man -- that means Illumina or your best sword for him, and best armor possible. Relics include an Amulet or Hero Ring and Marvel shoes or cure ring. Celes: Give Celes an Illumina blade plus Offering relic to have her hit effectively for 9999 or close to it for 4 hits a round. She lacks Terra's natural blocking ability, and requires a Paladin shield for maximum defense. Her other relic is of your choice, but an Economizer or Gem Box works wonders. Locke: Locke works the same way as Edgar, but include a Thief Ring if you insist on stealing/capturing. Also, the ring raises his battle speed tremendously. (3) Step Three: Gogo Steps Into the Equation Without a doubt, Gogo is your most versatile ally, and, in my opinion, next possibly to Terra, your best character, no questions asked. What's that you say? He's too weak? Can't equip anything worthwhile? WRONG! Give him the infamous Merit Badge relic, and he can wield an Illumina and wear top armor with the best of them. Give him the Hero Medal, or whatever the item is that increases his vigor (I forgot it at the moment), and the best weapons and armor in the game, including Paladin Shield and Illumina. Next, select the Status menu for Gogo in the Status screen, and you will notice that you can give him the special skills of all your party members. I suggest giving him Magic, Fight, and Blitz. When in doubt, the Blitz will hit hard against all your enemies for a quick, efficient takeout, sans MP cost. With the Illumina, vigor bonuses, and Paladin Shield, plus super level-up skill-building, Gogo will block virtually anything that comes his way (for me, he's even been known to block most special attacks, including Siegfried's HyperDrive and Shrapnel attacks. Yikes!). Magic spells of all types and classes will either be blocked by his shield, or will actually GIVE the Mimic HP. There is NO stopping him when he has reached his maximum power and efficiency, plus bonuses. Plus, he will be able to use whatever spells the combined members of the party he's in have learned, which is why I stressed earlier the necessity of learning all spells. If you insist, he can also use his mimic abilities, as well, but by this time, the others will want to mimic him! Just for show and because he's so great, I named my Gogo character Golbez. :) (4) Step Four: Test Drive Well, this isn't actually a step in character building, per se, as much as it is a chance to gloat at your characters' kick-butt power. Go kill some dragons, haunt the Veldt, storm Kefka's tower and laugh at his monsters, etc. My favorite activity is to take Gogo solo -- to the Colosseum, where he will reign supreme! If by now you aren't satisfied with your Killer 4, work on building up another powerful force of fighters..remember, the key is in Gogo. Trust me. All I can say is, I hope you've had as much fun kicking serious monster behind as I have with this surefire strategy for killing efficiently, effectively, and ultimately. Who knows; maybe someday, someone will invent a new school of battle tactics thought, and my 4-Step plan will be rendered utterly useless. But if you've learned anything from this plan, it's that you simply MUST fight as many monsters as possible. A common problem, especially among beginning RPG players, is the desire to run from or skip over the monsters, and thus the essential experience gain from killing them. Without building up halfway decent characters, you will not stand a blink of an eye of a chance against the harder baddies, much less the majority of the bosses. And who feels as badly as a regular loser at the Colosseum? And let's face it: who wants to look bad, in general? So take my advice: LEVEL UP 'TILL YOU DROP! THE 'BEST' OF FF6 ----------------- By King Kung The Best for Fighting --------------------- Below is a list of techniques that can either make your character super powerful or allow them to do special actions. 1) Equip an Offering and Genji Glove. 8 swings of the weapon! Equip someone with the Atma Weapon (level 60 and up) and another strong sword for over 60,000 HP of damage! 2) Another possibility is to hold 2 Scimitars (or other weapons that have special effects). Because you attack 8 times, it is highly likely that the weapon will do something special! 3) Rage Ring and Blizzard Orb. With these two relics, Umaro becomes a real fighting machine. 4) Black Belt, Offering. If an enemy hits you, they're in for a big surprise as you counterattack four times. 5) Do you think Imps are useless? Try turning someone into an imp, then equiping them with the Imp Halberd, Imp Armor, Tortoise Shield, and Titanium. Now you have a super strong imp! You can even create a party of imps and have fun mauling your enemies. Although Kappa itself isn't in the game, you can rename someone Kappa with the Rename Card and have fun pretending. 6) Hero Ring and Offering. This recovers some of the power of the weapon that is lost with the Offering equipped. 7) Muscle Belt and the Atma Weapon. If this weapon gains power with the amount of your HP, why not have more HP? The Best Tricks and Cominations ------------------------------- 1) Gem Box and Economizer. I've always wanted to cast two Ultima spells per round, and have it cost me only 2 MP. This is one of the cheapest tricks around. 2) Earings and more Earings. Use this if you want some heavy magic power. 3) Equip Relic Ring. Cast Doom on this person, and the entire party will be complEthery cured! 4) For Gau and Mog, equip the Snow Muffler. Almost all attacks do 1 HP of damage on you, and you're immune to Fire and Ice attacks. 5) Mog with the Moogle Charm and Sprint Shoes. Good for doing quick tasks or if you want to try your best to blitz straight through the World of Ruin. 6) Equip a Thief Glove and an Offering on Locke. Use Capture, and you get 4 chances to steal from the enemy. 7) With Gogo, set 3 of his skills as Steal and equip the Thief Glove and Offering. Use this in the Coliseum if you want to steal from the enemy. --------------------------------------------------------------- PART FIVE-FF6 Anthology Edition Changes and FMV Descriptions --------------------------------------------------------------- By King Kung If you have played the Anthology version of FF6, you probably noticed that Square indeed has changed the game a little. Nothing major has happened to the actual gameplay, but there have been quite a few additions and fixes over the old FF3 on the SNES. Here is a list of changes. If you find any new ones, be sure to e-mail me! 1) New FMV intro and ending! If you have played FF8, imagine that kind of CG graphics quality depicting the FF6 characters. It is nothing short of amazing! The intro FMV showcases every character in a brief scene for each, depicts some of Celes' opera scene, the Sabin/Edgar coin toss, and also shows Terra preparing for battle along with Biggs and Wedge in her MagiTek Armor. The only really disturbing picture here is Kefka, who really does look like a dimented clown in this! Two thumbs up for this great addition! 2) The title screen (the one with looking at Narshe with a great trumpet crescendo) now reads "Final Fantasy VI" rather than "III" and also includes the burning MagiTek Armor watermark. 3) The main startup menu has been expanded. It now suits the Playstation memory card and uses both memory card ports. 4) On all of the save/load screen menus one of the Final Fantasy characters will walk onscreen and react to your choices. If you leave the character onscreen and do not press anything for awhile, it will fall asleep! Although most of the characters are the main 14 that you can get in your party, there are also extra ones and special ones that will appear on the main startup menu! These include a few characters from FF6 and also some cameo characters from other FF games! The characters I have seen so far are Kappa the Imp, a soldier, Cloud, Squall, and an Onion Kid from the Japanese FF3 on the Famicom (NES)! Cloud and Squall have both been super deformed and appear just like FF6 characters. These appearances appear to be random, but theoretically you can do a soft reset (see item 6) repeatedly until you see the character you want. 5) Memo File. You can now save a temporary file into the Playstation's RAM. This allows you to start immediatly after you perish or reset without saving onto the memory card. Although this is a very usefull feature, DO NOT turn off the system until you have saved to the card (that is, of course, unless you like replaying a half hour of gametime again! ^_^) 6) Soft reset. Much like the other FF games on the Playstation, you can reset the game at any time and go to the title screen. This is done by holding down all of the top trigger buttons (L1, L2, R1, and R2) and then pressing Start and Select. This will take you back to the main FMV and then the main menu where you can load a game. 7) Slowdown. Okay, so this isn't a new feature, but I figured it is important to mention. The Playstation FF6 has considerable slowdown in battles due to loading times. This also is an anoyance when you go to open a menu and have to wait several seconds. You will get used to it and it does not hinder the enjoyment of the game very much. 8) The Bonus Menu. Accesible from the main menu, this menu begins only with a way to view the opening FMV, a set of pictures, and a bestiary (enemy list) for the World of Balance. However, once you complete the game, it will ask you to save a special file to your memory card that allows the viewing of several game features. This is the second biggest addition to the game behind the FMV movies. 9) Small textual edits. Square acknowledged some mistakes in the original translation and made a few changes to it. The first one that you will notice is that Vicks is correctly changed to Biggs (Biggs and Wedge, the two soldiers, are names taken from Star Wars). When you find Shadow in the Veldt cave in the World of Ruin, it no longer refers to him as 'her' because of the possibility of finding Relm there (this should clear up a lot of foolish rumors about his gender). Ziegfried's name does not constantly change anymore. There are possibly other text fixes, but no major ones. 10) One item has been renamed. The Memento Ring, a relic equipable by both Shadow and Relm, is now known as the Safty Ring. (Apparently Square can't spell 'safety' right 100% of the time ;) Got any additions? E-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org --------------------------------------------------------------- PART SIX-Miscellaneous Info --------------------------------------------------------------- By King Kung, NELDOG, GWS Wizard, JonN2002, Tommy J L and Tortolia2 Edits by King Kung SPECIAL CHARACTER SKILL NOTES ----------------------------- Edgar can use 8 "tools" in battle. - Autocrossbow: arrow attack hits all enemies - Drill: single damaging hit - Bio Blast: poisonous gas attack hits all enemies - Debilitator: creates weakness in enemy - Flash: blind and damages all enemies - Chainsaw: massive hit (randome death) - Noise Blaster: confuses all enemies - Air Anchor: enemies die after attacking party Many of these can be bought in Edgar's castle, South Figaro. Sabin has special control pad techniques that are issued when the "blitz" command is invoked. Select "blitz", input the code and then press X to continue. These work much like Street Fighter moves. - Pummel : L,R,L - Mantra (heals) : R,L,R,L,X,Y - AuraBolt : D,DL,L - Air Blade : U,UR,R,DR,D,DL,L (clockwise "roll") - Suplex : X,Y,D,U - Spiraler : R,L,X,Y,R,L - Fire Dance : L,DL,D,DR,R (counter-clockwise "roll") - Bum Rush : L,UL,U,UR,R,DR,D,DL,L (total clockwise circle) Cyan uses a special "sword techniques" that must be "powered up" when selected up to 8 levels. - Dispatch: powerful attack - Retort: counterattack - Slash: absorb damage given to enemy - Quadraslam: attack four times - Empowerer: absorb HP and MP (reminiscent of Drgn Sword, FF5...) - Stunner: Stops all enemies - Quadraslice: stronger version of Quadraslam - Cleave: instantly kills all enemies Terra can morph into a half human, half Esper form, increasing all of her stats until she has to morph back or the battle ends. The duration of the morph is determined by Terra's level and number of battles since her last morph. Locke can use his turn to steal an item from the enemy. Whether he is successful or not depends on his speed stat and the speed of the enemy. With the Thief Glove equipped, Locke can attack while stealing. Shadow throws varying items at the opponent for damage. These can include items designed specifically for such a purpose (ninja stars, scrolls...) or regular weapons. He is also aided by Interceptor, his dog, who helps by defending against attacks and counterattacking. Setzer plays a slot machine, and depending on the outcome, various things will happen. Matching three of the same slot produces a positive effect. A losing spin will heal some of the party with the Lagomorph. However, getting two 7s and a bar will end in instant death for both the opposition and your party! With the Coin Toss relic equipped, Setzer can toss GP at the enemy for massive damage (like the name GP Toss suggests). Strago is a Blue Mage; when an enemy uses a specific spell on him in battle, he learns that spell for use in the future. View the Lore List for what Lore spells he can learn and who ususally gives them up. Gau has the unique ability to learn the skills of creachers from the Veldt by leaping on them. When he returns to the party he can use these new skills in battle. Leaping can ONLY be done on the Veldt, and may learn the skills of all beasts in the current battle. When Gau immitates the specific enemy, he takes along attributes, such as strengths, weaknesses, and even weaponry! See the Rage List for every learning possibility. Relm uses her artistic talent to sketch (actually paint...) an enemy character, who then attacks the same opposing party. This command was very glitchy on early releases of the game, causing either helpful or catastrophic changes to you and your save files. However, there is no trace of this glitch in the Anthology edition. With the Fake Mustache that is found in the Zone Eater, she can control the enemy, making it use specific commands each round. When Relm is hit, her control of the enemy ends. View the Sketch and Control list for specific trait descriptions. Celes has the unique ability of Runic, which absorbs any spell used during a round of action. Generally she receives the MP that the spell cost to use, but equipment can effect this value. The Runic Absorb List can be found immediatly after the Magic List. It should be noted that some of the spells that can be absorbed are enemy-specific ones. Mog, being a moogle, is in touch with his surroundings, and thus can use them in battle. When he dances the dance of a specific environment, special calamities and animals come to the party's aid. To learn an areas dance he mearly has to complete a fight in that area. A dance used in it's normal environment during battle will always work, while a different one may fail. Mog's dances are given in the Dance List. Umaro the Yeti uses his bulk to attack when equipped with the Rage Ring. He will bodyslam enemies and even through party members at the enemies! Both do massive damage. When wearing the Blizzard Orb he can also breath an Arctic blast for damage to all enemies. Be aware that you can not control Umaro's actions. Gogo is a master of the Mimicron, allowing him to mimic the last action of your party. This applies to everything except normal attacks and unique powers like Morph. Everything else will be copied, although if an attack or magic spell it will generally do less damage or have less of an effect. From the status screen Gogo can even equip the skills of other party members! It should be noted that some skills can't be used (such as Morph) and others require specific equipment to be made useable (like Runic and the SwordTechs).

Pearl Flare Demi Quartr X-Zone Ultima Scan Slow, Slow2 Haste, Haste2 Rasp Osmose Mute Safe Shell Sleep Muddle Stop Bserk Float Imp Rflect Vanish Dispel Atomic Ray N. Cross Diffuser Tek Laser Note: If Celes/Gogo has protective armor against various ele- ments, the amount of MP absorbed will be affected. Usually, absorption of spells is the same amount of MP it takes to cast the spell. If an armor has 50% Damage against Fire, using Runic with Fire will only get you 2 MP instead of 4. Also, if the armor says that an element has no effect, you won't get any MP. This might be the case commonly with Celes, since she can use Minerva, powerful armor with lots of magic protection. Remember, Runic works on Ultima! ORIGINAL NAMES IN FF6 (Japanese Version of FF6) ----------------------------------------------- These are the original character names: US - FF6 Japan - FF6 --------------------------------- 1. Locke Lock * 2. Terra Tina * 3. Celes Celes 4. Cyan Cayenne * 5. Sabin Mash * 6. Edgar Edward * 7. Setzer Setzar * 8. Strago Straggus * 9. Relm Relm 10. Mog Mog 11. Gogo Gogo 12. Umaro Uumaro * 13. Shadow Shadow 14. Gau Gau * - Denotes ones that were changed, some just to accomodate 6-letter name limit. Editor's Note: Some people are puzzled as to why the Japanese can get away with having more than six letters. Well, the answer is pretty simple when you think about it: Japanese characters can have one or two letters contained within each to produce a sound. Tina (Terra) would be three letters in Japanese. So, the Japanese DO have a letter li- mit... It's just that they make better use of the space. :) FINAL FANTASY AS A MULTIPLAYER GAME ----------------------------------- To use multiplayer mode, go to the config screen and change it from single to multi, then hit A and assign characters To the controlers. It only works for battles though, not the regular gameplay. CONTROLS FOR THE 'VEHICHLES' ---------------------------- Key: L = left on control pad R = right on control pad U = up on control pad D = down on control pad UR = up/right diagnol DR = down/right diagnol DL = down/left diagnol UL = up/left diagnol L1 = left button on top of control pad R1 = right button on top of control pad X,O,Sq,Tri = control buttons <Riding Chocobos> U = move forward L or R = turn X = move forward O = dismount (Chocobo returns to stable) <Airship> U or D = adjust height L or R = turn X = move forward O = leave airship Tri = switch to view inside airship Sq = turn airship when it's not moving L1 or R1 = highspeed turns COLOSSEUM LIST -------------- Use this list to determine who you will fight for the item you wager and what you get should you win. If the item is not on this list, when it is wagered you will fight Chupon for an ERikksir, though you will more than likely be sneezed out of the battle quickly. It IS possible to beat Chupon, but you need a super beafed-up character. When you wager valuable items, remember to save before the fight in case you should lose.

It also lists the spells each Esper teaches and the speed at which you will learn them. Notice that some Espers teach the same spells but at different speeds. Also take note that once Odin is changed into Raiden, there is no going back to earn those prescious extra agility points.

Kirin - tower in Zozo Unicorn - Magitek Factory Sraphim - buy from man in upper-right corner of Tzen Starlet - bookshelf of Owzer's House. Phoenix - end of Pheonix Cave Palidor - Solitary Island beach, after finding airship Ifrit - after defeating Ifrit and Shiva, Magitek Factory Shiva - after defeating Ifrit and Shiva, Magitek Factory Maduin - tower in Zozo, after Terra remembers her past Bismark - Magitek Factory Ramuh - tower in Zozo Shoat - Magitek Factory Odin - Ancient Castle Raiden - 5 steps south of throne, downstairs, Ancient Castle Crusader- after defeating all 8 dragons Bahamut - after defeating Doom Gaze Tritoch - frozen Esper, Narshe Alexandr- throne room, Doma Castle, after Cyan's dream Ragnarok- weapon shop in Narshe; need Locke to enter Terrato - Umaro's bone carving Carbunkl- Magitek Factory Phantom - Magitek Factory ZoneSeek- auction house, Jidoor Golem - auction house, Jidoor Stray - tower in Zozo Fenrir - after battle with Phunbaba, Mobliz Siren - tower in Zozo DESPERATION (NEAR FATAL) ATTACKS -------------------------------- When you are in critical condition (your HP is very low and your character is hunched over), choosing to fight may yield your character's Depseration Attack. These moves are extremely powerful, especially early in the game when you can't normally do several thousand points of damage. Gau and Umaro do not have Desperation Attacks because they do not have Fight as a command. Character Name Description --------------------------------------------------------------- Locke Mirager looks like first part of a Bum Rush Terra Riot Blade throws a series of rings at an enemy Celes Spin Edge spins around enemy holding out sword Edgar Royal Shock flash of light Sabin Tiger Break looks like Cyan's Empowerer Cyan Back Blade sword strike that turns screen black Mog Moogle Rush looks like Sabin's Pummel Strago Sabre Soul jumps at enemy, makes flash of light Relm Star Prism stars surround an enemy Shadow Shadow Fang jumps at enemy and claws it twice Setzer Red Card spins around and throws cards 3 times Gogo X-Meteor rock going from top right to bottom left of the screen LOCATIONS OF THE 8 DRAGONS -------------------------- 1 in Narshe (Ice) 1 in cave reached from Zozo (Thunder) 1 in Opera House (Dirt) 1 in Phoenix Cave (Red) 1 in Fanatics' Tower (White) 1 in Ancient Castle (Blue) 2 in Kefka's Tower (Gold and Skull) LOCATIONS OF THE TWO SECRET CHARACTERS -------------------------------------- UMARO In the WOR, go up to the top of the cliff where Tritoch is. Defeat the esper and then jump into the crack behind it. Be sure that you have Mog with you. Work your way through the caves until you come to a bone carving. Press A like you were talking to it and you will receive the magicite "Terrato." Umaro will come out of what looks like a cave opening to the north and you will fight him. When you beat him, Mog will force him to join you. GOGO In the WOR, go to the triangle island and wander around until you fight a ZoneEater. Let it engulf all of your characters and you will be able to explore the ZoneEater's stomach. If you search for a while, you will find Gogo in the caverns. BANQUET SCORING SCHEME ---------------------- Deep into the WoB is a banquet scene at the Empire's base. Depending on your actions here, several things can be acomplished and some items procured. The entire banquet events are scored and can be tabulated mathematically based on this model: (a) Each guard you talked to 24 x 1pt each = 24 pts (b) Each guard you fought 5 x 4pt each = 20 pts (c) Toast question To the Empire 2pt To Returners 1pt To our hometowns 5pt (d) Kefka question Leave him in jail 5pt Let him go 1pt Execute him 3pt (e) Doma question What's done is done 1pt That was inexcusable 5pt Apologize Again!! 3pt (f) Celes question Was she a spy? 1pt She's one of us 5pt We trust Celes 3pt (g) Asking each question 2pt each If you asked one of the questions twice -10pt each Remember which question you asked first!

Along with the informat- ion about the next Square game to be released, are some Square Soft related products. One of the eye catchers is the Final Fantasy 3 Soundtrack (Kefka's Domain). However, the only way to get this is from Square directly, and the price is 40 dollars, about 2/3 the price of Final Fantasy 6! Many people who love the music of FF6 may want to purchase the CD, but aren't sure it provides the songs they like. Say no more, because the 3 CD collection is going to be revealed to you right now! Hopefully, this will provide you with the information you need on whether you want to spend the money. I will be listing the titles of each song, and any notes about it (where you find it in the game, approximate length, etc.).

My overall rating: ***1/2 This is a great collection, but some of the songs you really want to hear are too short. However, it is worth it, in my opinion. --Tortolia2
A second opinion: ****1/2 This CD has kept me entertained for hours on end. Any serious music lover or FF/RPG lover alike should make a point of adding this wonderful collection of gaming maserpieces to their collection. Though you wish you could blast some of the 'tunes for hours, many do seem short. :( Definitely worth the extra cash, and a limited item, so get it now before it's gone forever! --JonN2002 A 'Final' opinion: ***** As of this writing, the game music CDs have pretty much been rereleased and are available through several importers. The original soundtrack for FF6/6 is still a great purchase today. I give this collection the high rating because, of all the FF games, this one has my favorite music. A definite must-buy for Final Fanatics. --KingKung EASY EXP. --------- Ok, want to get REAL EASY Exp.? YOU NEED A RAPID FIRE CONTROLLER FOR THIS TO WORK or a rubber band. Go to the Config screen and set the Buttons to "Memorize." Now get to the Lete River Scene and travel on the raft to the first intersection. Choose "Up" and you'll go around in a circle and fight at least one battle. In the battle, have Banon use Health, Terra fight, Sabin fight, and Edgar uses the AutoCro- ssbow. Now, put the controller on auto-fire for button A or put a rubber band around the button after the battle and leave it there. The raft will go around in circles, fighting enemies, with Banon healing the party! Leave it on overnight and see what happens! VANISH/DOOM/X-ZONE ------------------ Using Vanish and then Doom on enemies early in the game usually kills them instantly, but as the game progresses, the rate of success is greatly lowered. Using X-Zone in place of Doom, your chances will be increased to 99% possibility of killing an enemy with this trick. WARNING: Using Vanish/X-Zone DOES NOT allow you to collect most items from enemies! :( EASY STATUS RECOVERY -------------------- To cure a status ailment quickly and easily, equip the character that has the ailment with a relic that protects against that type of ailment. When you check your status after you have equi- pped the relic, you should be complEthery cured! SAVING WHEN NOT ON A SAVE POINT ------------------------------- In places where you are controlling more than one party, such as the Phoenix Cave and Kefka's Tower, if one party is on a save point, then all the other parties are also considered to be standing on it and can use Tents to replenish their energy! REVIVIFY THE DEAD ----------------- Undead monsters are suceptible to Cure magic as well as items such as Life, Revivify, and Fenix Down. Try using these items and you should beat them in one hit! UN-ICING YOUR FRIENDS --------------------- When your allies are frozen, an easy way to "un-ice" them is to cast a Fire spell on them. Fire1 is best since it creates mini- mal damage. --------------------------------------------------------------- PART SEVEN-Game Genie Codes --------------------------------------------------------------- Parts by BC 002, GameDuster, Bombodos, JonN2002, Kupos9, TheSpook1, Manson8814, and JT Edited by King Kung, GWS Wizard, JonN2002 While these codes are a nice start, there are so many more... and they are almost all available from the Game Genie Code Creators Club.

Change the party positions around and you will then have Leo and Terra. Kefka has no commands in battle, so the game freezes when it's Kefka's turn. 71 5BAE-8F69 New rare items code: Go into battle and double-click your sword or shield and the battle will end.

AA68-EDA8 Character Customization Codes ----------------------------- This lets you change character stats, menu items, and equipment. Use before the character joins your party. The order here is a little screwy since it was made from an old table. Replace 'XX' with the variable that suites your needs. Thanks to JT for these codes.

There are three areas where you can use the code (AA90-74DD) to get out of a situation where you would normally have to wait or fight it out. The following are made possible with this code: Narshe Moogles At the very beginning, use the code to get out of Narshe with Wedge and Vicks. It may not have any purpose, but it's interst- ing. Narshe Moogles II When Locke and Terra are free to leave Narshe after the intro, you should use the code to get back into Narshe and travel up towards the esper. When you get to the screen where you would fight Kefka later, the group will be lined up as if you were about to fight him. Go up to Banon and say you are ready and you will prepare to fight Kefka. You will have the choice of using these characters: Terra, Locke, and....GASP! 5 Moogles! Yes, Kuru, Kutan, Kupek, Kuku and Kumama have come to your rescue. Seeing you're short of the 5 necessary characters, the Moogles are kind enough to fill in for them. Beat Kefka -It's hard- and you'll have these cute guys until the WOR (and maybe beyond)! South Figaro Moogles When you're in Locke's Scenario, he can leave town as a Merchant or Soldier. Just use the code to get around the annoying guard who chases you at the beginning of the scenario. The only down- side of this is Celes will have had a major makeover. She now is General Kutan, the Moogle! KUPO!!! Moogle Blitzes! Use the first Moogle Trick to get the Moogles in your party. Now, after doing that, go get the airship, and take it to the MagiTek Factory. Beat it, and then put Terra, Locke and the moogle that replaces Edgar (Kumama) in your party. Go to the Cave where you fight Vargas and head toward him. When you fight Vargas, the moogle that replaces Sabin will come to save the day! Now, when you you can use Sabin, the moogle will be able to use blitzes! Also, after you do this, go to the place where you meet Shadow for the first time and name him. Then, go to Gau's Father's house and get him to join. He will now be in the airship! :) Take Banon! Using the Walk-Through-Walls trick to get the Moogles, work your way through the game to the point where you have found Relm and Strago, and the Floating Continent has taken flight. Return to the Returner's Hideout, and take Banon! You MUST have Terra, Locke, Edgar, and Sabin in your party at the time. He'll join you, and the Airship will be waiting right outside! Don't worry about losing Locke... he'll be right back on the Airship! :) With Banon in your party, make sure not to change your party members, or he'll disapear. DO NOT take him with you to the Emperor's Banquet, or he'll be stuck with Terra and Locke, and the game will freeze when you meet Strago (there's no room in the party for him). You can't keep him to the WOR. :( Gerad Use the walk through walls codes in Figaro castle, to go down onto the stairs and get around that anoying lever guy. You can go down the engine room, and Gerad (Edgar), will be down there. Use only Sabin and Celes in your party to do this, if you have others the game will mess up. When you exit with the new edgar in your party you will be in the World of Ruin. When you use this, you will be stranded on the figaro continent. Teleportation! When you are fighting Kefka's troops in the world of Balance to protect Banon and the esper, defeat all the guards and use walk through walls to the right of Kefka. You can walk around Narshe and still stwitch between parties. If you go to another town and switch your other parties will be moved around. Try to get them out of Narshe and they will be teleported next to the town where your other parties are. --- Equip All Paladin Shields To get this trick to work, enter the GG code: AA9E-E4D8. Fight one battle and it will say "Curse on shield lifted." Go to your options screen you can equip EVERYONE with PALADIN SHIELDS IN EVERY CATEGORY! This even works on the relics screen! Equip each person with a weapon, then put P. Shields everywhere else. You to fight, and you'll learn Ultima much faster (depending on how many shields are equipped)! After fighting for a while, look at your stats for an even bigger surprise! --- 'Getting' Leo, Kefka, and Others This is a special trick with many variations. I won't list it here; instead, go to http://www.videogamesource.com/genie/ and find the FF6 Code Handbook. This is very worth it for nostalgia's sake. --- Meet Bosses on the Veldt! (by JonN2002) Code: 8FA3-846D You will encounter Colosseum-only monsters, some regular monsters from advanced levels (Phoenix cave, Cyan's Dream, Kefka's Tower), and mostly BOSS CHARACTERS! Yes, you can encounter Phunbaba, all 8 dragons, both Atma Weapons, Ultros, and Siegfried. (Get his rage if you see him!) There is also a pretty likely chance that you will run into Kefka in one of his many forms. However, if you begin a battle and notice that you are Kefka himself, turn off the game, because it will freeze when he gets his turn to fight. Very strange! You will also run into monsters normally inaccessible in the course of the game, such as "Colossus" and "Inferno." When you run into them, they usually have A TON of HP and MP, and are extremely powerful. So far, I have encountered 3 to date. They are all boss characters, and fade when they die, just as do bosses. Anyway, perhaps the funniest part of this code is, you will, many times, re-enact famous past scenes and cinema sequences, such as Kefka's killing Leo and Gestahl, the Esper attack scene, Kefka's taking the espers in Thamasa, Relm's sketching Ultros, ...except all will take place on the Veldt! Even if the characters from the scene are not in your party, it will simply show the dialogue to follow. The best part is, when and if you do a Kefka sequence, the top member of your party's line-up will sometimes play Kefka himself! Yes, imagine the possibilities! I've never laughed so hard as when I witnessed Celes killing Espers, and even Leo! By far my favorite code in a long time. --------------------------------------------------------------- PART EIGHT-Game Shark Codes --------------------------------------------------------------- Right now the Final Fantasy Anthology has just been released in the United States, so there are only a few Game Shark codes available at this time. In a future update, Game Shark codes WILL be added. --------------------------------------------------------------- PART NINE-Tetsuya0's FF6 Hard Type ROM Hack and Sky Render's FF3US True Translation --------------------------------------------------------------- Currently under production, Tetsuya0, a denizen of AGFF (otherwise known as alt.games.final-fantasy) is creating a patch for FF6 the FF6 ROM. This patch will be a must-try. The reason? It fixes one of the biggest shortfalls of the game: its difficulty. The current version is available at Zophar's Domain. Below is information about the patch provided by Tetsuya. By Tetsuya (email@example.com) Did you ever think that Final Fantasy III (aka FF6j) was a really easy game? Well, I sure as hell did! IMHO, it was even easier than Final Fantasy VII, since your characters in Final Fantasy III/VI can become demi-gods towards the end of the game, especially since you have your Espers and stuff to gain magic spells, and stat bonuses at level ups... well this hack basically fixes all that and adds individuality between your characters! That's right, all characters aren't basically the same anymore! I sealed the Magic command for all but three characters! So, that means, only 3 characters in the game are allowed to learn it! Have fun, cause this game isn't going to be extremely easy any longer... and I've still got a hell of alot of work left to do on it! Whats implemented (thus far)? v1.0 2/17/99 - All characters except Terra, Celes and Strago have had their Magic commands sealed. - Adjusted some character status. I've dumbed down Gogo ALOT (I know he's not very strong normally, but his mimic ability can be very cheap, I've slowed him down alot and brought his strength and magic power down a bit more too). What I plan to implement in the future: - To weaken cheap-ass spells, like Ultima, Merton, Meteor etc. and also INCREASE their MP cost! And perhaps Balance out MP costs with other spells (ie all the level 1 element spells cost 5 instead of 4, 5, 6) - To possibly make ALL bosses and powerful normal foes resist Vanish magic, so you won't be able to use the super cheap-ass Vanish + Doom/X-Zone combo! - Dummy out the Economizer, Gold Hairpin and Offering relics from the game complEthery. No getting around the increased cost of Ultima this way, or 8 hit X-Fight! - Dummy out Esper Level up bonuses. Hey? It's not fair that your magic users will be able to gain extra stats! - Tweak with the Esper spell learn rates - Weaken the characters 'hidden' strength they gain during level ups, they can still become demi-gods as their levels rise higher and higher, even w/out Esper enhancements! (this might require ASM...) - Think up of more ways to make this game harder, but without making it impossible ;p Prepare to have a fun experience in the Fanatics tower! The only people who will be able to fight are Terra, Celes, Strago and Gogo! The rules for this current patch (until I can get things implemented): 1) Absolutely NO Vanish + X-Zone/Doom! 2) Don't equip Economizers, Gold Hairpins or Offerings (with the exception of the Leo scene, that is) 3) Try getting through with as little level building as possible, to avoid becoming demi-gods 4) Don't pull off cheap spells very often (I can't stress it enough since I haven't altered their strength yet). Other things: 5) Game Genie codes are a no-no 6) Same with save game hacking! ******If ANYONE could give me some help with what I'm trying to implement into this hack, it would be very appreciated and you will get credit for this project.****** ----------- Also released by Tetsuya is a Beta version of his patch and a special Hard Type Demo featuring some special hacked guest characters and a bout with the now Weapon-like (actually, it puts the Weapons to shame!) version of the Brachosaur. This Brachosaur is quite possibly the strongest enemy ever scene. Even these hacked Level 99 characters will have some trouble with it. Contact Tetsuya if you have the FF3US ROM (he will NOT provide it for you) and wish to try these new patches out. SKY RENDER'S RETRANSLATION (or My Insane Project) ------------------------------------------------- Sky Render (firstname.lastname@example.org), another denizen of AGFF, has released another very ambitious project. Many people agree that, although very functional, the translation of the japanese FF6 to the US FF3 and now FF Anthology versions is severely lacking. Much of the storyline has been taken out or edited to appease some formerly strict content guidelines and to make it fit into the allotted space for text. Because SkyRender is such a genius, he decided, "Hey, why not give the people a true translation of this game?" And so he did. His patch changes the text and even the character names to better reflect the Japanese version of the game. I strongly suggest you test this out if you have the FF3 ROM (again, please don't ask him for it!). --------------------------------------------------------------- PART TEN-Credits --------------------------------------------------------------- ORIGINAL CREDITS ---------------- Here are the credits from the last version of the FAQ.
