 To navigate much easier through this guide, I added the search system, which
works just by following these simple steps:

- Highlight the "Section Code" of the section which you wish to go and copy it
  (CTRL+C).

- Press CTRL+F to bring up the search sub-menu.

- Paste (CTRL+V) the "Section Code" and press ENTER twice to be where you
  wanted to be. Just like magic!

 My Section Codes were made as precise as possible, and I also prefer this
method instead of having you scroll 30 min through this huge guide looking for
the section you want to go.

 Hello and welcome to my Final Fantasy IX guide. vinheim finally writes for
Final Fantasy IX, and I've been wanting to do so for some years now. You must
be wondering if another FFIX guide is needed. Well, probably not, but hey, I
write for love of writing, as well as love for the games, so yeah, FFIX is one
of my favorite FF of all time, and well, I've finished it at least a dozen
times.

 Well, I hope you have a good time playing through the game while using my FAQ.
I know I had a blast writing for the game. Without further adieu, I'll leave
you with my guide and one of my biggest ones.

  There're some things I want to address, so please read the following
paragraphs:

- I'm writing this for free and because I like this game (just like I mentioned
above). If you are looking for tons of eloquent ways for me to say "move here,
grab x item and go N to the next area", you are going to be so disappointed.
This guide is way, way too big to begin with, and lofty language does not help.

- If you take a quick scan thru my guide, you won't find the explanations for
battle basics, main menu, saving-loading, etc. Why, you ask? Well, because the
game manual and in-game tutorials do a perfect job explaining the battle
system.

- The usage of abbreviations. When you're in my place or any who writes for
GameFAQ's or any other page, writing a guide for any game of such proportions,
people complain about using too many abbreviations. You have no idea how
helpful abbreviations are. It also looks better in every aspect you think.

- My guide is not the only one out there. I'm not forcing you to use mine, but
if you use others, then you better be prepared for lots of spoilers, which will
ruin the element of surprise for you, as well as to get you lost in the
walkthrough (like what happened to me when I tried to use some of the FAQ's in
the site). Also, people that have problems with how I write my guide are from
slim to none.

- The spoilers are great issues in making guides. I am a player of the game,
just like you are. The first time I played through this game was completely
by myself. I didn't read any spoilers, therefore nothing was spoiled for me.
All the story's ups and downs that were supposed to surprise me had such
effect. And I really think it's not fair spoiling such story elements to you.
Even if I want to spoil it to you, I'll bite my fingers so you can get the most
spoiler-free walkthrough here.

 With all this said, let's start with the guide! Enjoy  this guide and remember
that it is a spoiler-free, so you don't  have to worry about  important info of
the game being spoiled.

 Any critics, suggestions, spelling mistakes, contributions are welcome, so
please send them at the following e-mail:


                           --> vinheim@gmail.com <--

 I always reply to all the mails I get, since feedback is the best reward of
all.

o Important
-----------

 The only sites allowed to host my FAQ's from here on out are the following:

- www.gamefaqs.com
- www.supercheats.com
- www.neoseeker.com

 This is because many sites either steal my guides or they don't update them,
making it really hard on me because many readers from other sites often ask me
question from an incomplete guide, so this is a better way to keep track of my
FAQ's and my readers. Please, if you're not on the list above, don't even
bother asking about hosting them because the answer will be NO. Thanks.
-----------

 I also have MSN and AIM, but please, if you add me, do NOT start bombing me
with IM. If I have the time, I'll chat to you, since I'm always busy writing
FAQ's and making some research for my job and school, but please keep it
polite, 'k? Anyway, here they are:

MSN: xander_may_cry@hotmail.com
AIM: vinh3im

 Ask politely and I'll add you. I don't have YIM, so start mailing me to make
one just so you can chat with me.

 Also, I created a Facebook page for you to check it out here:

o http://www.facebook.com/pages/Vinheim/127120257336550

 This was made because several people like to add me on Facebook and since I'm
not accepting people I don't know, and I removed the people that added me
(sorry for that), I created this page, so enjoy.

 This is a little experiment of mine and I just wanna see how it goes. Well, if
you found this guide to be at least somewhat useful, think about donating some
money. I mean, I'm a student who pays his own school, and it's gastronomy and
it consumes all the money I get at home. I'm not asking for 10-20 bucks.
Whatever your heart wants to give is fine, be it 1 buck, 50 cents.

 Whatever the amount you can donate, I'd truly, TRULY appreciate it and your
help would be greatly appreciated. Well, you can only donate through PayPal at
the moment, which the account is: vinheim@gmail.com
                                  -----------------

 Instead of buying the official guides which cost around 20 dls., better donate
half or a quarter or whatever amount to yours truly.

 To those who support me, thanks.                  - Alexander Paul Kleinheider

 In the world known as Gaia, Queen Brahne Raza Alexandros XVI of the kingdom of
Alexandria lusts for power, and is trying to increase her domain by conquering
the surrounding lands. War is brewing among the neighboring kingdoms on the
Mist Continent. Regent Cid of Lindblum is worried about how these troubling
events will impact Princess Garnet, so he dispatches a troupe known as Tantalus
to Alexandria. Tantalus, a band of thieves disguising themselves as actors to
hide their operations, plan to kidnap Garnet. A prominent character in Tantalus
is the game's main protagonist, Zidane Tribal.

 However, the Princess herself yearns to escape from her wicked mother, and is
willingly kidnapped. During the operation, Vivi and Adelbert Steiner, Captain
of the Royal Knights of Pluto and Garnet's guardian, become involved, much to
Steiner's disdain. The plan soon backfires, and Tantalus member Zidane is left
in charge of the kidnapping. Their ship, the Prima Vista, is shot down from the
sky and lands in the Evil Forest.

 What follows the story of our heroes? Does Queen Brahne really want war? What
are her true objectives?

 Author notes:
  This is how it works:

- My lv.: I'll be displaying recommended levels, or even my levels, for every
area. Remember that the levels are only a reference. Go at your own pace, with
levels higher or lower. I am not trying to force you people to play the game
the way I played. Also, the characters on the upper line are the active party
while the ones on the bottom are the reserve party.

- Gil: The total amount of Gil you obtain in the area.

- Items: All the items you obtain in the area are listed here. You're shown the
whole quantity of the area here. Also, it's only usable items.

- Cards: Card you obtain in the areas to play Tetra Master - Minigame.

- Equipment: All the equipment in the area goes here. All armor, weapons and
accessories are in this space.

- Stellazzio: The Stellazzio Coins that you obtain are located here. This is a
sidequest and will only appear in some areas.

- Key Items: Items located under the Key Items section of the game come here.

- Enemies: I'll be displaying the enemies that you will be encountering in that
area. I'll be writting BOSS, SUB-BOSS or OPTIONAL BOSS next to the name of the
enemy denoting THAT enemy is a boss. Also, there's a character that eats
weakened enemies to learn Blue Magic. Those that are edible have the TAG "EAT"
next to the name. I'll be also adding their HP and their elemental weakness.

 You ready to play this game once again? Well, I'm assuming you've played this

"That's when I kidnap Princess Garnet, right?" -- Zidane


 After the opening FMV with the beautiful princess and the gorgeous castle, we
finally get ahold of the main character of the game. Move to the N side of the
room and check the left side to find '47 Gil'...

   <vin> Gil is FFIX's currency. The more Gil you have, the better.

 ... and check the right side to find 'Potion'...

   <vin> Potions in this game are used to heal 100 HP to one character.

 Once you're done, check the center of the room and press X to light the
candles. Once the room is lit, we get to name our main character. His default
name is Zidane, and I'll be naming him so for the rest of the guide.
Afterwards, the rest of the crew come out - Blank, Cinna and Marcus. After some
talk, you get to fight a...

.-----------------------------------.------.--------.-----.-------------------.
| Masked Man                        |  HP  | 188    |  XP | ---               |
|-----------------------------------| Weak | ---    | Gil | ---               |
| Item Drop | None                  '------'--------'-----'-------------------|
| Steal     | Mage Masher, Wrist, Potion                                      |
\==========='=================================================================/
 |                                                                           |
 |   Strategy: Ok,  the very first boss of the  game and  it's training for  |
 |  you. You have 4 characters and all of them are thieves. Yup,  Zidane is  |
 |  a thief. Anyway, have all characters steal from the Masked Man over and  |
 |  over until  you steal the Mage Masher.  This early  in the game and you  |
 |  already  have Zidane's  second weapon, which totally kicks ass  at this  |
 |  point in the game.                                                       |
 |                            						     |
 |   If you want, steal the rest of his loot (if you didn't steal it before  |
 |  the Mage Masher of course) and attack him normally over and over. Cinna  |
 |  will  probably die  just because he's  so weak.  Don't even worry about  |
 |  healing him or  reviving him if  he's KO.  Just keep on attacking until  |
 |  he's down.                                                               |
 |                            						     |

 After the fight, watch the scene and when you need to pick an answer, choose
"That's when I kidnap Princess Garnet, right?". Afterwards, keep on watching
the scene and you'll be at...

"I sorry. I enter you in Moogle Diary!" -- Kupo the Moogle


 Watch another FMV after the chat between the Tantalus members and now you'll
be controlling Vivi, FFIX's Black Mage. He's an awesome character and you'll be
controlling him through the area. After the little chat with the kid, move W
directly from the start and you'll find 'Potion' from the area with a "!" over
your head.

 As you move N, a Rat Kid bumps into you. You'll meet him again later in the
area. Now check the oranges on the NW side of the area (near the exit) and
you'll find 'Potion'. Now go inside the SE house (in this same area) and check
the bed to find '9 Gil'. Check the table next to the bed to find 'Potion'. Now
go up the ladder and check the drawer to find 'Fang Card'.

 Now leave the house and go S to the next area, which is the entrance of
Alexandria. Go counterclockwise around the plaza and you'll find 'Zombie Card',
'Lizard Man Card' and 'Sahagin Card'. Now check behind the statue in the center
of the plaza to find 'Potion'. Now return to the previous area. Simply go N to
the next area.

 Watch the little scene and when you regain control, check the grass on the S
side to find '33 Gil' and 'Goblin Card'. Now go N inside the tavern. Inside,
check the W side (where the door is) and get '27 Gil'. Check the barrel SE of
the Gil to find 'Flan Card'. Now check the E side to find 'Potion'. Leave the
tavern and head W to the next area.

 Now head into the shop on the E side, check S of the counter to find '38 Gil'.
Talk to Doug, the shop owner to buy items. Leave the building and go N, which
is another plaza, the main one. Here, approach the ticket booth and peek into
it. Show the ticket to the ticketmaster and he'll tell you it's a fake. Boohoo,
too bad. You'll receive 'Goblin Card', 'Fang Card' and 'Skeleton Card' though
;).

  He tells you about Alleyway Jack to learn about cards. Anyway, go E and enter
the Synthesis Shop. Check the E corner of the shop to find 'Ether'...

   <vin> Ether resplenishes 100 MP to one charater.

 Leave the shop and head N. Before the bridge, check the W side to find
'Phoenix Pinion'...

   <vin> The Phoenix Pinion is the same as the Phoenix Down, only that the
   former is also used as an accessory for another character only. Very neat.
   You only need 1, so use them if necessary while keeping the one for equip.

 Now talk to the girls playing with the rope and you'll be able to do it as
well. You'll get prizes depending on how many times you jump it. Here's a list
of the prizes:

   20 :: 10 Gil
   50 :: Cactuar Card
  100 :: Genji Card
  200 :: Alexandria Card
  300 :: Tiger Racket Card
1,000 :: King of Jump Rope

 Getting 1,000 jumps seems impossible. I've never done it since I get annoyed
by the game, but knock yourself with it ;). Anyway, go W to the next area. Run
and Vivi falls, making the sign fall down. When you're asked, say "Alright" and
then say "Yeah, it's clear" and the rat boy steals the ladder. Before leaving,
talk to the red-headed guy to find out he's Alleyway Jack.

 Learn about the card game if you desire, return to the alley and follow the
rat boy to the next area. Instead of following him inside the chappel, enter
the house before the chappel. Check the corner to find 'Eye Drops'...

   <vin> Use the Eye Drops to remove the Blind Status Ailment from 1 character.

 Go outside and wait for the girl to run outside. Go inside the house, go up
the stairs and check the bed to find '3 Gil'. Leave and go S to find the docks.
Talk to the kid here and he lost his kitten. The kitten is in the very first
area, the first plaza. Go there and approach the kitten. The kid runs behind
you and thanks you. Return to the docks and speak to the kid. He'll give you
'Bomb Card' as a reward.

 Now go inside the chappel the rat kid went into and a little scene triggers.
When you regain control, check the grass near the rat kid to find 'Tent'...

   <vin> Tents are used to regain HP and MP to the whole party when used at
   Save Points (Moogles). You can't use them otherwise, besides the World Map,
   in which is the same, 'cus you use a Moogle.

 Now check the E side to find 'Potion'. Now try going up the ladder to have the
Moogle Kupo fall down. He explains how to save and how to use Tents. Also,
Stiltzkin appears, which is a traveling Moogle. You'll meet him more than a
dozen times throughout the game and in the most incredible places XD.

 Moving on, you're told about Mognet, in which Moogles send letters to one
another. Make sure to deliver them as soon as you find the Moogle. You can only
hold 3 letters and some Moogles only appear once in the game, so read carefully
throughout the guide so you don't miss one, 'k? =D

 Now, when the rat kid orders you to follow him, save your game with Kupo, pick
Mognet and you'll receive a letter for Monty. Now go up the ladder and when
you're on the rooftops, go W and the wooden plank fill fall. Afterwards, go S
and examine the wooden circle on the left to find '29 Gil'.

 Now go N and the rat kid will ask you for your name. Since the name's Vivi,
it'll stay that way. The rat's called Puck. Anyway, go N and down the stairs on
the right before going E. Down the stairs, follow the wooden planks all the way
to the E until you find a wooden circle with '63 Gil'.

 Return up the stairs and go N now across the wooden planks. Check the wooden
circle up here to find '92 Gil'. Return S, go E across another wooden plank and
go N to trigger a little scene and a FMV, just to leave us at the start of the
play.

 We start with Baku dressed up as King Leo. Watch the scenes, which are a lot
and afterwards, you'll have to fight Kind Leo and his 2 allies. Just attack him
normally. The SFX are only for show and won't cause any dmg., so use them if
you want to see some cool stuff =D.

 After the fight, keep on watching some scenes while a kickass song plays while
you fight Blank. Here, you have to follow Blank's lead. Press any of the D-pad
buttons, as well as /\, [], O and X, depending on what Blank tells you to
press. It's pretty darn tough to get all 100 nobles impressed. I've only done
it once and it gave me 10,000 Gil. This time, I got 99 nobles impressed and got
879 Gil. You can redo the stage fight over and over until you get the 100
nobles.

"I shall hereby do my best to kidnap you!" -- Zidane


 Watch the scene between Blank and Zidane. Afterwards, when you regain control,
go up the stairs and you'll see someone with a white robe run out. Answer with
whatever you want and keep on watching the scenes. You'll meet Queen Brahne's
General and Captain, Beatrix and Steiner, which you get to name.

 Now we're in control of Steiner. We need to round up all the Knights of Pluto
in order to get an item, an Elixir. We'll do it really quick. Before that
though, go up the stairs again and go S to get to where the Queen is. Talk to
her and you'll receive an item:

      Ether :: 01 - 49 nobles impressed
     Elixir :: 50 - 79 nobles impressed
 Silk Shirt :: 80 - 99 nobles impressed
  Moonstone :: 100 nobles impressed

 Now that you've got your item, and since we've already found Bluntzen (PN2)
and Kohel (PN3). Now go inside the room on the E, at the bottom of the stairs
(where Blank and Zidane where) and in this room talk to Bluntzen and Kohel
again. Once they leave, check under the door to find 'Phoenix Down'...

   <vin> These items are used to bring back someone who's KO. It has the same
   effect as the Phoenix Pinion, only that these aren't equipable and are worth
   a whole lot less.

 Save your game with Mosh if you want and leave the room. Go N here and you'll
find another Knight of Pluto running around in this room. Catch up to him and
you'll finally get ahold of Dojebon (PN5). Enter the E room here to find
Mullenkedheim (PN9). Return to the previous room, go down the stairs and enter
the W room.

 This is the library. Check the lower part to find Laudo (PN4). Return to the
previous room and go S to exit the castle. When you reach the river area, check
the lower part of the area to find Haagen (PN8). Now go W and speak to Weimar
(PN7). Go inside the building and start going up the stairs. Speak to Breirecht
(PN6) when you get to him and he'll hand over 'Elixir' if you spoke to all the
Knights of Pluto...

   <vin> Elixir is one of the most useful items in the game. It replenishes all
   your HP and MP for one character. It won't heal any Status Ailments nor will
   it bring back characters from KO, which is a shame, but hey, you can't have
   everything, right?

 Now move to the top to trigger a little scene with the hooded girl, Zidane and
Steiner, as well as an FMV. When you regain control, go inside the room the
hooded girl went into to meet with Ruby, another member of Tantalus. Now speak
to her to have the scene continue. From when you regain control, check the
wheel behind you and turn it both left and right to make an item fall each
time.

 Open both chests to find 'Phoenix Down' and 'Phoenix Pinion'. Now return up
the stairs and enter the door to trigger a scene and a...

 |   Strategy:  Steiner is very easy.  Remember when you fought Baku at the  |
 |  start of the game? Well it's pretty much the same here. Start by having  |

 |  Hat and the Silk Shirt. His attacks deal from 12 to 21 dmg. Just attack  |
 |  him a couple of times and he's done for.                                 |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  this  battle is pretty  much the  same as the first one  |
 |  against Steiner, only that we have Vivi and Garnet with us.  Use Vivi's  |
 |  Fire  over and  over and  if you need to heal,  use Garnet's Cure.  Let  |

"Maybe fate brought us together... I can't explain it." -- Zidane


 When you regain control after the crash, you'll be told about the Active Time
Events, or ATE for short. I'll be adding the ATE events when they happen, just
like I add my commentary (<vin>), alright?

   <ATE> The Forest Keeper [Garnet & Vivi]

 After the Forest Keeper ATE, you'll regain control. Talk to Mosco and save
your game. It's been a while since we've done so. Now check the boxes (on the N
side behind the fallen musician) to find 'Phoenix Down'. Now go SE through the
tree to get to the actual Evil Forest.

 You only get to hang in this first area because there's a boss in the second
one. I recommend you leveling up. Level up until you're lv.4-5. If you haven't
done so, equip the Mage Masher you stole from Baku at the start of the game so
you can kill every enemy with one hit.

 Once you've reached the desired level, go NE to the next area, watch the scene
and prepare for a...

| Party lv  | Zidane 5                                                        |

 |                                                                           |
 |   Strategy: In this Boss Battle we're shown Trance. We transform in this  |
 |  form and each character gains sum extra skills. Zidane gains Dyne which  |
 |  changes all of his skills for attacks,  which hit either 1 enemy or all  |
 |  of them. Pretty neat, huh? Against this boss, DO NOT USE Tidal Flame as  |
 |  we would kill Garnet in the process.  				     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Instead, use Free Energy against it.  The boss has 513 HP and it likes  |
 |  to  absorb HP from Garnet.  Make sure to keep an eye on Garnet's HP and  |
 |  whenever it absorbs twice,  quickly heal her back up with a Potion. You  |
 |  can even leave Steiner on standby and just wait to heal her,  which you  |
 |  shouldn't find the need of doing so.				     |
 |                                                                           |

 After the fight, watch some scenes and now Vivi is the one held captive...
dammit. Here we go with another...

.-----------------------------------.------.--------.-----.--------------.----.

 |   Strategy: This is pretty much the same as the previous fight.  Only in  |
 |  this one, we have Vivi held captive and uses Fire to deal around 80 dmg  |
 |  to the Prison Cage. The boss also absorbs from Vivi, so don't forget to  |
 |  heal him  before he dies.  Since we don't have Trance in this fight,  I  |
 |  recommend  you stealing from  it until you've  stolen both items,  then  |
 |  attacking it nonstop.                                                    |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Just like  with Garnet,  whenever the  Prison Cage  uses Absorb  twice, |
 |  quickly heal Vivi because he won't survive a third Absorb.               |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 Now watch... watch... watch a hell lot of scenes XD. Now, when you regain
control, equip the Leather Wrist on Zidane for him to learn Beast Killer. Open
the chest next to Baku to find 'Bronze Gloves'. Now leave the bridge, descend
the stairs...

   <ATE> Time to Escape [Steiner]
         Girl Who Was Left Behind [Ruby]
         My Little Baby (after watching Time to Escape) [Cinna]

 At the bottom, open the chest to find 'Wrist'. Now talk to Blank and he'll
tell you about Vivi. Now enter the room on the E. Open the chest to find
'Ether'. Go up the ladder onto the bed and check the corner to find '116 Gil'.
Now speak to Vivi to trigger a little scene between him and Mr. Zidane. Now
leave the room to trigger another little scene.

 Now pick "Go look for her" and the scene continues. Afterwards, it's time to
go talk to Baku. Go W to the next area, open the S chest to find 'Ether' and go
down the stairs and in this room (remember this first room?), check the N side
to find 'Rubber Helm'. Now go E to trigger a little scene with Baku. After it,
open the S chest to find 'Potion'.

 Now return to the previous room and go S (don't speak to Baku yet). Open the
chest here to find 'Leather Hat'. Now return to the previous room, prepare
yourself and speak to Baku to trigger a...

 |   Strategy: Pretty easy fight.  His attacks deal around 35 dmg. which is  |
 |  not that high. You should be dealing around 100 dmg. per hit, so just a  |
 |  couple  of hits  and he should be  done for.  Make sure you  steal both  |
 |  items,  as the Iron Sword will come in handy this early in the game. If  |
 |  you ever need to heal up, just toss yourself a Potion. 		     |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 Watch the scene after the fight and now we're finally free to go look for
Garnet. Now return up the stairs to where Marcus was and enter the door. A
little scene with Steiner triggers and he joins the party. Return inside the
room and open the chest to find 'Ether'. Now return to Vivi's room to trigger
another scene.

 During the scene, Steiner obtains a new command, "Magic Sword"...

   <vin> This is basically one of Vivi's spell, used by Steiner. It has
   slightly more power due to Steiner's physical attack and Vivi's magic. Not a
   bad command at all. Note that Vivi HAS to know the magic in order for
   Steiner to use it, duh! XD

 Now that Rusty and Vivi have joined the party, time to upgrade their
equipment. If you want, leave Steiner equipped the Broadsword until he learns
Beast Killer. If not and you wish to do that at a later time, equip the Iron
Sword. You can also equip the Rubber Helm and leave the Broadsword. I recommend
doing this last thing since the next boss and enemies use lightning-elemental
magic.

 Equip the Bronze Gloves as well. As for Vivi, equip him the Leather Wrist and
Silk Shirt to learn both Blizzard and Thunder. Nice, they all have complete
equipment. Now go downstairs and try leaving the Prima Vista. A little scene
with Blank triggers and you'll receive 'Blank's Medicine'. You're also taught
about your Abilities and how to equip them.

 Pretty easy, right? Now leave Prima Vista and speak to Mosco the Moogle.
Choose Mognet and you'll receive a letter from Ruby...

   <vin> lol, I was gonna write you got an email from Ruby, XD!

 Now, save your game and buy whatever you need from Cinna. Now proceed SE just
like before and proceed to the next area...

   <ATE> Orchestra in the Forest [Tantalus]

 This is where you fought Prison Cage. Go N to the next area. In here, you can
take a left, but there's nothing important. Now go N to the next area. You'll
see a Moogle here, as well as a spring...

   <ATE> Do As I Say, Not As I Do [Tantalus]

 When you regain control, drink from the spring to recover HP and MP, which is
like using a tent. Anyway, speak to Monty the Moogle and choose Mognet. Give
him the letter and he'll also receive a letter from Stiltzkin. Now save your
game and proceed E to the next area.

 Start leveling up Steiner and Vivi a bit... until lv. 3 or 4 is good. Proceed
E, watch the rather short FMV and head N to the last area. A scene triggers as
you enter and afterwards, a...

 |   Strategy: A good thing to do here is equip both Zidane and Vivi with a  |
 |  Silk Shirt,  while you  equip  Steiner with  the Rubber  Helm.  This is  |
 |  because the Plant Brain uses Thunder and can be quite devastating. With  |
 |  these items equipped, you'll reduce dmg. by half, which is neat-o.       |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Anyway,  as for attacks, he attacks with his right and left tentacles,  |
 |  hitting either the character on the left or the character on the right.  |
 |  His  Thunder spell can either hit one character or the whole bunch.  If  |
 |  the last one happens, have everyone use a Potion on himself to heal up.  |
 |  He also uses Pollen,  which the same  attack the enemy Dendobrium uses.  |
 |  It dmgs.  all characters  and can inflict  Darkness status  on 'em. Not  |
 |  good. 								     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   After you deal around 900 dmg.,  Blank appears.  If you haven't stolen  |
 |  the items  from the boss,  make sure you do so now  that you  have both  |
 |  thieves with you. Throughout the whole battle, make Vivi cast Fire over  |
 |  and over.  Steiner should stick  with Fire Sword,  which should  deal a  |
 |  grand 270+ dmg. on the boss. Let Zidane and Blank steal and afterwards,  |
 |  just use physical attacks. 						     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   If you need to use items, have any character available use it, whether  |
 |  it's Potions, Phoenix Downs or Eye Drops.				     |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 After the battle, watch the scene. Now we'll be chased by many Plant Spiders.
I really recommend you taking advantage of this place and lv. up a bit. It only
takes one hit from Vivi's Fire spell to kill all of 'em. Besides that, you
receive over 350 Gil, which is really nice. Besides that, they carry Hi-
Potions, which are really nice this early in the game. It's your choice though.

 Anyway, from where we start, go S and follow the straightforward path. You'll
have to fight some mandatory fights, but you've already fought several of these
monsters, right? Anyway, before proceeding after the pincer-attack fight,
unequip all of Blank's equipment and equip him with Steiner's Broadsword so you
can sell the Iron Sword.

 Watch the scenes and the really effed up FMV. Blank's one of my favorite FFIX
characters...

   <vin> Man, Steiner is one of the most annoying characters in all Final
   Fantasy. Lucky us, he changes somewhat later in the game.

 When you're about to leave, Monty the Moogle appears...

ready to go. We need to go to a cavern S of the Evil Forest. Mmm... go S and
you'll see a blue entrance. That's the Ice Cavern, our next destiny. Before
that though, go W while you look W until you find the North Gate. A little
scene triggers as you enter.

 Since Garnet is without equipment, equip her with a Leather Hat, a Wrist and
her Silk Shirt. Open the chests to find 'Eye Drops' and 'Potion'. If you check
the gate itself, you'll chat with a gal who sells Potions for 50 Gil each. Buy
as many as you want/need and leave. Remember where Ice Cavern is? No? Well,
return E towards the Evil Forest and look S from the exit to find...

"You bastards!!!" -- Mois the Moogle


 After the scenes and when you regain control, approach the flower that Garnet
was looking at and a ! appears. Use it to jump upwards and grab the chest with
'Tent'. Now, from here, take a look further up the path and you'll see that
some icy wind blows and then stops. Whenever you touch 'em, you'll
automatically enter a fight, so be careful.

 Anyway, proceed N to the next area. In this area, at the fork, go E and
examine the wall. Vivi uses Fire to melt the wall away and reveal a chest with
'Ether'. Return to the previous fork and go N, following the right path (not up
the stairs). Open the chest at the end to find 'Potion'. Return to the fork and
go up the stairs and go N to the next area.

 At the fork in the beginning of the area, go W and at the top, melt the wall
and grab 'Elixir' from the chest. Now go to the S side of the area and you'll
find a chest with 'Potion'. Return across the pillar and have Vivi use Fire to
move it downwards and you'll be able to grab 'Mage Masher' from another
chest...

   <vin> If we wouldn't have stolen the Mage Masher from Baku at the beginning
   of the game, we would have gotten it right here. Very late, no?

 Anyway, return up the pillar and go NE to the next area. In here, take a right
at the fork to find 'Phoenix Down' inside the lone chest. At this next fork,
follow the left-most path and melt the wall. This reveals a hallway. Follow it
to get 'Leather Wrist'. Anyway, return to the fork and go N (following the
right path of course) to the next area.

 In this next area, take a left to find Mois the Moogle...

   <ATE> "Teach me, Mogster!" Lesson 2 [Mogster the Moogle]

 Use the Mognet pick to have him ask you to deliver a letter for Gumo. Now use
a Tent, save your game, return to the fork in the previous area and go NE to
the next one. Watch the scene and when you regain control, prepare yourself, go
N, watch a scene and prepare for a...

\=============================================================================/
 |                                                                           |
 |   Strategy: This boss can be kinda  tough because you're alone against 2  |
 |  foes.  Anyway,  let's start  with the  attacks.  Sealion's first.  Wing  |
 |  causes a mere 10+ dmg to Zidane. Blizzard causes around 30 dmg. Tsunami  |
 |  is its  most lethal attack  which causes around 80 dmg.  Blizzara deals  |
 |  around 55+ dmg. in one hit. Black Waltz's Blizzard causes 20- dmg. Fire  |
 |  around 25 dmg. to Zidane.                                                |
 |                                                                           |
 |   This  fight is very  easy at this lv.  At the start,  don't even worry  |
 |  about stealing Black Waltz's items.  Instead,  quickly kill him to make  |
 |  this fight even. Once it's one vs one, start stealing until you get the  |
 |  Mythril Dagger, which teaches Zidane a new ability. I beg of you, steal  |
 |  it before the fight ends. 						     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Since Zidane will  deal over  80 dmg.  per hit and you'll be receiving  |
 |  around 30 dmg. per Sealion's turn, you won't be healing that often, but  |
 |  once the orb in Sealion's chest turns red, it'll release Tsunami, which  |
 |  deals over 80 dmg. It only does the attack when you deal around 400 dmg  |
 |  to it. 								     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Toss a Potion whenever you need to heal and in case you really need it  |
 |  use a  Hi-Potion  to completely heal yourself.  You can  also use  your  |
 |  Trance to quickly finish this battle. 				     |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 After the fight, watch some more scenes. When you regroup and regain control,
return to where you fought the Black Waltz and follow the path upwards until
you exit the Ice Cavern. Outside, another scene triggers and now Garnet will
change her name to Dagger...

   <vin> Man, Dagger is much easier to write down (and faster as well) than to
   write Garnet. In my opinion that is... thinking about it carefully, it's the
   same thing XD. I think I just like the name Dagger a lot more. What'cha guys
   think?

 When you regain control, we'll be at the World Map. Equip the newly adquired
Mythril Dagger.

 Out here, there are a couple things I shall tell you before proceeding.
There's a monster called Ragtime Mouse. This monster asks you a question and
asks you to pick O or X depending on your answer. This monster gives you Gil if
you responded correctly. You can only encounter this monster 4 times in this
disc, so make sure to make him appear the 4 times. Also, he only appears in
forests.

 Another thing that's important (not storywise) are the Friendly Monsters.
These are the same that normal enemies, only that they talk and another battle
theme triggers. They many times ask you for an item. Give them the item they
want and they leave, telling you where the next Friendly Monster is and giving
you free AP as a reward. Neat, huh?!

   <vin> The Friendly Monster Mu will only appear if you have Ore in your
   inventory. Fight Carve Spiders around the area to obtain some. They have
   around 100 HP, so they should go down rather fast.

 Anyway, before entering the next area, make sure to run around the forested
areas to find Ragtime Mouse and the Friendly Monster Mu. Anyway, after you
fight both monsters, head NW from the exit of Ice Cavern to find...

"I'm popular with ALL the ladies in Lindblum" -- Zidane


 Watch the scene that triggers as you enter. Once it's over...

   <ATE> Vivi, Confused [Vivi]
         Dagger Tries [Dagger]

 Watch the ATEs and check the right side of the room to find a chest with
'Antidote'. Now check the left side to find a hidden chest with 'Potion'. Now
leave the room and speak to Gumo the Moogle. Give him Mois' letter and then
exit the room...

   <ATE> Cat's Eye [Innkeeper Hal]

 Out here, go inside the building across the path to find the store. Buy 3
Feather Hats and a Leather Wrist. This should make everyone upgrade to the best
armor and weapon available at the moment. Now leave the shop and go all the way
N to find Vivi. Speak to him. Afterwards...

   <ATE> Cat's Eye 2 (after watching Cat's Eye)[Innkeeper Hal]
	 Dagger Tries Harder (after watching Dagger Tries)[Dagger]

 Now enter the shop again (after watching Dagger Tries Harder) to find Dagger.
She'll head to the Inn in a bit. Now leave the Inn and head N to where Vivi
was. Enter the building to the right to find the item shop. Buy whatever you
need and head over to the bedroom at the inn. Speak to Dagger and a little
scene triggers...

   <ATE> Queen Brahne's Steiner [Steiner]

 The scene continues. Now leave the Inn, go to where Vivi was and enter the
building to the left. Check the N side of the room to find 'Aries'. Now check
the metal dome on the S side of the room to find an entrance to the underground
part of Dali.

 Down here, go down the platform, grab '156 Gil' from the chest and proceed N.
A scene triggers as you arrive. Now enter the shed where Vivi was and you'll
find a chest with 'Potion'. Exit to find another chest just SE of the entrance
of the shed with 'Eye Drops' in it. Now proceed to the next area. Now examine
the barrel with something red on top to find Kumop the Moogle.

 Pick Mognet and he'll give you a letter for Mogki. Now check behind the barrel
with Kumop and you'll be able to jump from box to box to the top to find
'Ether' in the chest. Now kick the wheel near the exit to have another chest
drop down. Open it to find 'Potion'. Proceed to the next area.

 In this large area, follow the upper path on the left side to find a chest at
the end with 'Iron Helm'. Now check the right side of the room to find a chest
with 'Leather Wrist'. Now proceed to the next area to trigger a scene and have
Vivi rejoin your party...

   <vin> Now that Vivi rejoined the party, make sure to equip him and Garnet...
   em, excuse me, Dagger with the newly bought equipment.

 Now check the NE side to find a chest with '95 Gil'. Now, if you open the door
to the N, you'll be able to grab the items behind of it, but at the same time,
you'll release some monsters. Behind the door, open the chest in front of you
to find 'Phoenix Down'. Behind the machine, there's another chest, with
'Potion' this time.

 There's also another hidden chest here (by the machine obviously) that has
'Phoenix Pinion'. Return to the previous room, examine the machines and go E to
the next area. Another scene triggers as you arrive. Oh man, in what kind of
trouble are we in this time?

 Now we're playing as Steiner. Go down the stairs, check the NE side to find
'135 Gil'. Check the barrels on the S side of the area to find a hidden chest
with 'Hi-Potion'. Now enter the house and speak to Morrid. Afterwards, leave
the house and the area itself. A scene triggers and afterwards...

 |   Strategy: Ok,  this Black Waltz  is very  similar to the previous one,  |
 |  only that this time he's alone and is stronger,  obviously,  but so are  |
 |  we,  no?  His attacks don't  deal that  great of a dmg.  Teleport deals  |
 |  around 60 dmg. to one character. He also uses Fire on one character but  |
 |  nothing to worry about.						     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Once you deal around half dmg., he'll use Fira on all male characters,  |
 |  dealing around  130 dmg. to all of 'em.  This fight is very easy if you  |
 |  know what to do. First of all, have Zidane steal both the Leather Plate  |
 |  and the Steepled Hat. Have Vivi NOT use magic. If you do so Black Waltz  |
 |  will cast the same spell on all characters to deal around 100 dmg.       |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Let Dagger use Cure over and over.  The good thing is that Black Waltz  |
 |  won't target Dagger, but still,  if the rest of the men die,  it's game  |
 |  over ;).  Have Steiner use Magic Sword to deal around 350 dmg.  per hit  |
 |  and if you enter Trance with him, you'll deal around 730 dmg. with just  |
 |  one hit. Neat, right?  This is pretty much it.  It's impossible to lose  |
 |  this fight if you have Dagger use Cure over and over. 		     |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 After the fight, pick Rest at the Inn if you wanna save your game. I recommend
you doing so since we'll be in a boss fight pretty soon and there won't be
another Moogle in the Cargo Ship. Back at Dali, level up outside if you so
desire to do, use the Inn, save your game and outside, check the N side of the
weapon shop (from outside) to find '120 Gil'.

 Now head over to the farm and board the...

"I trust you, Zidane." -- Dagger


 Watch the initial scenes with poor Vivi. When you regain control, equip the
Leather Plate on Zidane, go up the stairs at the end of the hallway to trigger
a little scene with Steiner. Haha... enter the bridge whenever you can to make
the scene continue. Oh man, here we go again, for the last time... I think ;).

 |   Strategy: Ok, this Black Waltz is way stronger than #2,  and something  |
 |  that makes it harder is the fact that Dagger isn't with us. What a pain. |
 |  Yup,  time to  use all  those Potions you've been getting.  Let's start  |
 |  with #3's attacks, shall we? He uses lv.1 Spells like Fire and Blizzard  |
 |  that deals around 70 dmg. to one character. 			     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   His lv.2  Spells deal around 160 dmg.  to one character as well and to  |
 |  the whole group for around 100 dmg. His physical attack deals around 70  |
 |  dmg., which isn't much.						     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   A good thing  is that Vivi enters  Trance automatically  as the battle  |
 |  starts,  which means  you can  double cast  any  spell.  Make sure  and  |
 |  completely sure that Zidane steals all 3 items from #3. Those pieces of  |
 |  equipment are very good at this point. Once he's out of stealable items, |
 |  have Vivi start doublecasting any spell, while Steiner uses Magic Sword, |
 |  obviously.								     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Zidane should stick to physical attacks and  if he enters Trance,  you  |
 |  know what to use, correct?  I like to have Zidane heal using Potions or  |
 |  Hi-Potions if necessary since hes the fastest of the crew (have Steiner  |
 |  use Potions while Zidane steals). 					     |

*You'll only get one of these items, which is the winner of the Festival of the
Hunt.

"I'm not gonna sit back and watch your home get destroyed, alright?" -- Zidane


 Watch the scenes as you enter Lindblum. When you regain control, go up the
stairs before following Minister Artania. In this next room, go down the stairs
and talk to the chick. Her name's Erin. You'll meet her in another Disc as
well. Anyway, go up the stairs and go up the next set of stairs. In here, open
both chests to find 'Glass Armlet' and 'Ether'.

 Also, speak to Mogki the Moogle. Give him the letter and he'll also ask you to
give a letter to Atla. Ok, now return to the room with the fountain and follow
Minister Artania now. Keep on watching some more scenes...

   <ATE> Teach me, Mogster! (My first synthesis lesson) [Mogster]

 Now we finally have control. Enter the adjacent room to find Moodon the
Moogle. Speak to him and you'll receive a letter from Ruby. After reading it,
head downstairs and check the lower left corner to find '163 Gil'. Leave the
Inn...

   <ATE> Small-Town Knight in a Big City [Steiner]

 Here, go N to the next area. Here, go N to the next area and check under the
NE tree to find a hidden chest with 'Tent'. Now enter the NE building to find
the church. Go up the ladder and check the right side to find 'Leather Plate'.
Now leave the church and return to the previous area.

 Enter the house right next to you as you start. Open the chests to find 'Hi-
Potion' and 'Echo Screen', then leave the building. Move NE to the next area.
Ok, we're now in the actual shopping area. Go NE and enter the weapon shop. In
here, buy 2 Glass Armlet (you should have 1 already) and a Steepled Hat. Now
enter the NW store, which is the first Synthesis Shop.

 Now examine the table where Torres is to find 'Silver Gloves'. Now, it's time
to synth. You should have over 14,000 Gil, which should be more than enough to
do everything I want you to do. I recommend doing both the Butterfly Sword and
The Ogre and probably one of each accessory. Here's what you need:

  o Dagger x1
  o Mage Masher x3
  o Wrist x1
  o Steepled Hat x2
  o Leather Hat x1
  o Leather Shirt x1
  o Feather Hat x1
  o Leather Wrist x1
  o Glass Armlet x1

 It's not much. I equipped Zidane the Yellow Scarf so he could learn Bird
Killer and hurry up and learn Steal Gil skills. Once he learnt that, I changed
him to the Glass Buckle. Leave the synthesis shop, return to the front of the
inn and go right to enter the Station...

   <ATE> Vivi's Shopping [Vivi]. You get 'Kupo Nut' in the ATE.

 In here, examine the Air Cab and head over to the Industrial District. Leave
the station and check to the left of the entrance to find a hidden 'Leather
Wrist'. Now go up the stairs to the next area and enter the house at the end.
Open the 2 chests upstairs to find 'Mimic Card' and 'Steepled Hat'. Go outside
and speak to the man outside the pub, the one sick.

 Check the wall on his left to find a hidden 'Bronze Vest'. Equip on Zidane
right away, return to the station and head over to the Theater District. Once
you arrive, exit the station...

   <ATE> Steam Engine [Steiner]

 Check the SE corner (near the entrance to the house) to find '127 Gil'. Now
enter the house. Open the chest to find 'Ore'. Now follow the path to the next
area and speak to the woman near the stairs. She'll leave and another one
comes. Speak to her as well and go down the stairs. Speak to the purple-haired
woman and watch the scene.

 Once the huge Moogle leaves, return to the first area and enter the painter's
house. Speak to Lowell to receive 'Autograph'. Now check in front of Lowell to
find 'Moogle Suit'. Now proceed to the next area (where the first fan was) and
enter the building, which is Tantalus' hideout.

 A little scene triggers as Zidane enters...

   <ATE> What can I do? [Dagger]

 When you regain control, open the chests to find '97 Gil', '68 Gil', '282
Gil' and check up the ladder to find 'Mini-Burmecia'. Now leave the hideout...

   <ATE> Baku and His Crew [Tantalus]

 After the ATE, return to the station and head over to the Castle. Once you
arrive, when you get to the room with the fountain, try going SE to have a
soldier tell you to stop. Now go upstairs and proceed to the bedroom, where
Steiner is and a scene triggers. Now return to the fountain room and you'll
hear Dagger sing.

 Try going SE again and Zidane comes up with an idea. Return upstairs and in
this room, go down the stairs and speak to the sleeping soldier. A lil' scene
triggers and you'll steal his uniform...

   <vin> Man, this part reminds me so much of when Locke stole the uniform from
   the soldiers in South Figaro in FFVI. Man, so many good memories. Gotta
   write for that game sometime.

 Return to the fountain room, go past the guard and when you get to the upper
room, go left from the opening and follow the path until an FMV with the
beautiful Dagger triggers. Once you move the telescope, view all six locations
that appear with a ! and the scene continues. Now it's time for the Festival of
the Hunt.

 F E S T I V A L   O F   T H E   H U N T
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 Alrighty, I love this festival. Too bad it's only once per game. Now, the
characters participating in the festival are Vivi, Zidane and Freya. Each wants
something different, which is:

 Zidane :: Gil [5,000]
   Vivi :: Card [Theater Ship Card]
  Freya :: Accessory [Coral Ring]

 They all also start in different districts. Zidane starts in the Theater
District, Freya starts in the Industrial District and Vivi starts in the
Business District. You'll have a total of 12 minutes, which is what the
festival lasts. The time continuously runs, even when you're using the menu, so
pause if you need to go to the bathroom or whatever.

 The enemies won't give you a single XP, no AP, no Gil nor Items. You'll only
receive Points. Well, which one to pick as the winner? Well, I recommend
letting Freya win. Her prize is the best out of the 3, so yeah. How to let her
win? Well, let Zidane lose (like getting a Game Over) and when you encounter
the Zahgnol, DO NOT defeat it. If you do so, you'll win the festival.

 As for the enemies, there are only 3: Mus, Trick Sparrows and Fangs. The each
give you different amount of points, which are:

            Mu :: 7 - 14
 Trick Sparrow :: 6 - 13
          Fang :: 21

 I recommend finishing the Theater District first, then move on to the
Industrial and finally the Business District. If you reach the plaza in the
Business District (the area with the shops) when there's 4:30 minutes left,
you'll find the Zaghnol.

 When you fight him, make sure to equip some items that reduces Thunder magic
since Zaghnol loves to use them. You can steal Needle Fork (a weapon for an
upcoming party member) and Mythril Gloves). It has around 1,500 HP, which
shouldn't be much if you use The Ogre, which should deal around 550 dmg. per
hit.

 After the Festival, you'll receive your reward and the 'Master Hunter' key
item. Watch the scenes and we now know where our next destination is, right?
Damn that Queen Brahne. Anyway, when you regain control, equip Freya with the
best equipment you have (remember to equip the Coral Ring).

 Now leave the room, board the lift and go to the Base Level. We need to go to
Gizamaluke's Grotto, but before we go, there are some things I want you to do
before. Before leaving Lindblum, make sure to buy the following, since
there'll be a new character joining your party:

 o Needle Fork (stolen from Zaghnol)
 o Steepled Hat / Feather Hat
 o Glass Armlet
 o Cotton Robe
 o Glass Buckle

 Now, at the base level, ride the right cart S to the Serpent's Gate. Once you
arrive, examine the hidden N chest to find 'Wyerd Card'. Now move to the
Dragon's Gate, speak to Moonte the Moogle, pick Mognet and read Stiltzkin's
letter. Buy anything from the merchant there, open the hidden chest on the
right side to find 'Tent' and leave through the gate.

forest. Try approaching it to find...

 Remember this place? It's where Mogster is. Anyway, go N and when you actually
see him, go W to the next area. Here, go N through the grass and follow the
path until you see a blue "thing" walking around. Talk to it and it's hungry
and wants frogs. Go to the NE side of the area and catch the lone frog here.

 Speak to the Qu again and give it the frog. His/her name is Quina...

   <vin> I just don't know what Quina is, male or female. I'll most probably be
   calling it her throughout the game, just to make it easier on me, alrighty?

 Watch the scene with Quale and Quina. You're then asked if you allow Quina to
join the party. Accept her in the party. Poor Vivi though. Now equip everything
on Quina and make sure to have her learn Add Status since it'll be useful with
the Needle Fork's Petrify Add ST.

 Now, another sidequest starts here. Quina's frog catching sidequest. There are
Qu Marshes around the world and you need to eat a certain amount and you'll
receive an item. Check out the sidequest section for more info. I only
recommend you catching at least 9 frogs to get the Silk Robe.

 Now, with Quina in your party, you can now eat, meaning that when the enemy
has 1/4 of its Max HP left, Quina can eat it and learn an ability, if the enemy
bestows Blue Magic, of course. Here's a little list of the enemies here in the
Marsh that give you a Blue Magic:

o--------------.--------------o   These enemies are located here in the Marsh,
|     Enemy    |  Blue Magic  |  just like I said, but some of them are also
|--------------|--------------|  on the World Map, on the surrounding area of
|      Axolotl | Aqua Breath  |  the Marsh, where the grass is like brownish,
|   Gigan Toad | Frog Drop    |  not green like it normally is.
| Hedgehog Pie | Pumpkin Head |
|      Serpion | Mighty Guard |   The most important ones or so to say are
o--------------'--------------o  Serpion's Mighty Guard and Axolotl's Aqua
                                 Breath. Try getting those at all cost. Once
you do so, are you willing to go grab some more Blue Magic for Quina? No? Well,
too bad XD. No, in all seriousness, if you don't want to, skip the following
chart:

        o--------------.---------------.-----------------------------o
        |     Enemy    |  Blue Magic   |          Location           |

        |         Vice |     Vanish    | Eunorus Plains*             |

 Now return outside Qu's Marsh and from here, go E to find a river and a bridge
on the N side of the river. Cross it and keep going E until you find...

 As you enter, you'll see a Moogle and a Chocobo runnning around, playing.
Afterwards, you'll receive 'Gysahl Greens'. Do as Mene says, leave the Forest
and use the Gysahl Greens on the Chocobo footprints. Mount him and reenter the
Forest.

 Speak to Mene and ask about the big secret. Wow, we can use Choco to dig up
treasures. The best treasures are Chocographs. These show you a picture and you
have to find it in the World Map. If you do, you can dig there and find a chest
with several items. You can dig up several but only 2 are digable at the
moment:

 [_] Streamside [Elixir x2, Hi-Potion x3, Ether x4, Germinas Boots x2]
 [_] Between Mountains [Potion x5, Hi-Potion x5, Tent x2, Cotton Robe x2]

 When you wanna check your Chocographs, talk to Choco and select the Chocograph
option. Select the first one, Streamside and leave the Forest. The location of
this Chocograph is on the W side of the river you crossed to get to the Forest
from the Qu's Marsh. Press [] when you get to the shore to find the chest.

 As for the other Chocograph, Between Mountains, return to Lindblum's Dragon's
Gate and from here, go W alongside the shore to the SW side of the map. Start
digging in between the mountains to find the chest. Return to the Forest and if
you want (or if you haven't already), put on your Healing Shore Chocograph and
move NE of the Forest to enter South Gate.

 You remember this place from the ATE "Baku and His Crew"? Check the E side,
where Cinna was and when the ! appears, examine that place to find 'Moccha
Coffee'. Now go N towards the gate and check the right side to find a hidden
'Ether'.

|---------|---------------|-----------------|   area surrounding Chocobo's
| Ironite | Angel's Snack | King Ed Plains* |   Forest.
o---------'---------------'-----------------o

 Once back at the World Map, it's time to run to Gizamaluke's Grotto, finally.
Before that though, make sure you have some Gysahl Greens with you [at least
15]. This is due to 2 things: 1] They heal Confusion and 2] You can call
Chocobos. Now, press Select once to open up the Map. Find the Grotto and move
on to...

"What happened to Master Gizamaluke?" -- Freya


 At the start, after the scene, check the E side of the room to find a wounded
soldier. Talk to him to receive 'Gizamaluke Bell'. Now return and use the bell
on the N door to open it. Proceed. Watch the little scene and you'll now fight
2 Black Mages Type A. Really easy battle that only use level 1 spells.

 Proceed under the bridge and at this area, kill the Black Mage to receive
'Gizamaluke Bell'. Now go up the stairs and use the bell on the left door. Talk
to the wounded soldier to get 'Gizamaluke Bell'. Now return a little and at the
corner of the walkway, open a hidden chest to find 'Bronze Vest'. Now return
downstairs and open the small NE door.

 Follow the stairs, examine the NE side of the stairs to find a hidden pair of
'Mythril Gloves' and when you're under the little bridge, grab a hidden 'Magus
Hat'. Equip it on Vivi right away...

   <vin> In this area is more probable of you encountering Lamias. They use
   Might to gain more ATK. Counter this with Zidane equipped with The Ogre and
   using Soul's Blade.

 When you get to the big bell, a little scene with some Kupos...

   <vin> That's what I like to call the Moogles. I like the name Kupo more than
   Moogle, don'tcha think?

 Remember the Kupo Nut Vivi got in Lindblum? Yep, you use it here. Open the
chest in here to find 'Gizamaluke Bell'. Now enter the right door to find the
Moogles. Speak to Moguta and say Yes. Now speak to Mogmi and pick Mognet. She
receives a letter from Moodon. Now save your game and as you try to leave,
Moguta gives you 'Holy Bell'...

   <vin> If you check the NE corner of the room, you'll find a vine leading to
   the World Map. Out here, you'll only find 2 enemies: Garudas [forests] and
   Grand Dragons [Plains]. Don't even bother come out here. Garudas can kill
   your entire team with a single Aerial Slash and the Grand Dragons... I don't
   even wanna talk about it.

 Return to the room with the big bell and use the Holy Bell on the left door
this time. Go through to trigger a scene and a...

| Party lv  | Zidane 13, Vivi 13, Freya 14, Quina 12                          |
\=============================================================================/
 |                                                                           |
 |   Strategy: Ok, the first time I  played this game,  I had a really hard  |
 |  time  fighting  against  Gizamaluke and  the  reason is  that  I was so  |
 |  underleveled.  I even had a hard time against Black  Waltz #2.  Anyway,  |
 |  after  several  playthroughs,  I now know what it does and  how to play  |
 |  against it. First of all, let me mention its attacks.		     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Crash deals around 200 dmg.  to one character.  It has the spell Water  |
 |  which can target either 1 or all the characters for around 100 dmg. The  |
 |  last attack it has is Silent Voice,  which basically counters any spell  |
 |  you use against it with Silence [not always though]. 		     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   That's all of its attacks. First of all, make sure Zidane steals all 3  |
 |  items from Gizamaluke.  The Ice Staff is rather hard  to get and  it'll  |
 |  take you several  tries before you  actually obtain it,  so use all the  |
 |  potions you need to  stay alive  before killing Gizamaluke.  Before the  |
 |  fight, make sure you equip Zidane with the Butterfly Sword.  	     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Now, as the  battle starts,  make sure to have  Zidane use  Soul Blade  |
 |  while having the Butterfly Sword equipped  to have Gizamaluke Silenced.  |
 |  Now you don't have to  be worrying about the Water spell,  which can be  |
 |  dangerous.  Have  Zidane  steal,  like said  above while Freya  attacks  |
 |  [physical or Lancer], Vivi uses Thunder and Quina uses Potions.  	     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   If  you see  Quina is not  enough  alone to  heal up,  have  Vivi stop  |
 |  casting and start using potions alongside  Quina. Also,  have Vivi cast  |
 |  Slow  on Gizamaluke  to  have  him with  Slow  and Silenced.  Once it's  |
 |  without items to steal, just attack it over and over and use Thunder on  |
 |  it until it dies. 							     |
 |                                                                           |

 Now watch the scene and you'll be in control of...

 As we start, speak to the Lindblum soldiers. Haha, stupid soldiers. When we
regain control, check the left hidden chest to find 'Multina Racket'. Now speak
to the NE woman and console her. Afterwards, she'll leave and start speaking to
the guy on the left side. Now speak to the SE guy and afterwards, speak to the
blue "person" on the left side.

 Afterwards, try killing him... haha. Anyway, return to the chief engineer and
he'll run away. Now the coast is clear. Move to the alley, watch the little
scene and move to the Soldier. You'll receive 'Gate Pass'. Now move to the
alley to have Dagger come out of the bag.

 After the scenes, talk to the guy in the little hut on the right side to but
some items. Restock, grab 'Potion' from the chest on the left and speak to
Grimo the Moogle. Pick Mognet and you'll receive a letter to give to Nazna...

   <vin> Don't worry. We'll meet with Atla in Burmecia. Don't start thinking I
   forgot about her.

 Now, save your game, equip Dagger with the Multina Racket and the rest of the
newest equipment, as well as Steiner...

   <vin> Make sure to equip Steiner with a pair of Germinas Boots and Dagger
   with a pair of Desert Boots.

 Now go up the stairs and board the train using the Gate Pass. Sit on the
lowest right seat to have the scene continue and now you'll be in control of
Zidane and the rest again.

 We'll be now in the Daines-horse Basin area. Equip the Ice Staff you stole
from Gizamaluke right now on Vivi. From the entrance/exit of Gizamaluke's
Grotto, go N hugging the E mountain to reach the North Gate. After the little
scene, open the chests to find 'Hi-Potion' and 'Tent'. Now leave North Gate and
head W.

 You'll come across a huge sand whirlwind. From here, follow the passage to the
NE of it to reach the shore. From here, around this area, you'll find an enemy
named Nymph. Eat her with Quina to get her Blue Magic "Night".

o-------.------------.------------------o
| Enemy | Blue Magic |     Location     | * NW of the sand whirlwind near
|-------|------------|------------------|   Burmecia, near the shore and the
| Nymph |    Night   | *Eesistern Coast |   Chocobo Footprints.
o-------'------------'------------------o

 Around here, you'll also find the Chocobo's Footprints. Call it and time to
find some more Chocographs...

 [_] Healing Shore [Reef Ability]
 [_] Bird's-Eye Lagoon [Potion x8, Phoenix Down x4, Ether x3, Magician Robe x1]
 [_] Small Beach [Remedy x4, Elixir x2, Rising Sun x8, Oak Staff x1]

 The Healing Shore Chocograph is very easy for you to get. It's just behind
you. It's after the little passage you used to get to the shore. The reward is
the Reed Ability. Choco meets the Mighty Chocobo and it turns Cyan, giving you
the ability to walk over shallow waters. NICE!!!

 Now with the Reed Ability, we can get the Bird's-Eye Lagoon and the Small
Beach, but you have to return to the area with Qu's Marsh and the Chocobo's
Forest. Note that these are totally optional and you can do them later in the
game, but if you want to, go get them.

 Small Beach. From the Chocobo's Forest, go S and when in the shallow waters,
go W across the river and follow the shallow waters until you come across an
isle with a small beach. This is where the Chocograph is...

   <vin> As soon as Vivi learns Blizzara from the Ice Staff, make sure to equip
   him the Oak Staff. Gives him 3 new abilities, plus it has more ATK.

 Bird's-Eye Lagoon. From Qu's Marsh, go W and move into the shallow waters.
Press R2 to move the camera angle to have it right on top of you. Move across
the shallow waters until you get to a semi-large isle (you can see it in the
map). Check the left side of this isle to get the chest...

   <vin> As soon as you open the chest, look for some land to unmount your
   Choco and equip Vivi the Magician's Robe to have him have a huge boost in
   DEF and learn "Auto-Potion".

 Alrighty. We're done with things to do at the moment and since this is the
last part of the first disc, we had to make sure we did everything, no? Anyway,
from the entrance/exit of Gizamaluke's Grotto, move to the N side of the area,
save, heal and enter...

 When you gain control, look on the left side and you'll see a wrecked wooden
cart. Search behind it to find 'Cancer'. Go N to trigger a scene with Zorn and
Thorn. You'll also have to fight 2 Black Mages Type A. Afterwards, move left
and enter the building. Open the chest on the right to find 'Soft' and the one
on the right to find 'Potion'.

 Return outside, go right and into the door on top of the stairs...

o------------.---------------.--------------o
|    Enemy   |  Blue Magic   |   Location   |  * Outdoors of Burmecia.
|------------|---------------|--------------| ** Summoned by Mimics
|  Ironite   | Angel's Snack | Burmecia*    |
| Magic Vice |  Magic Hammer | Burmecia* ** |
o------------'---------------'--------------o

 In here, open the chest behind the stairs to find 'Soft. The chest on top has
a Mimic, which isn't strong at all. It summons the Magic Vice enemy though,
which is edible. Try eating one to get the "Magic Hammer" Blue Magic for Quina.
Now leave the room and go W when you're out here. Once inside, WALK across the
path, DO NOT RUN! Otherwise, it'll fall and you'll miss 'Germinas Boots' from
the chest.

 Now run across to make it fall. Return to the bottom floor of this room and
now you can cross. The chest here is another Mimic. Fight it and eat the Magic
Vice if you didn't earlier. In this room, move to the right side and jump out
the balcony. In this next room, check the NW corner to find a hidden 'Ether'.
Now talk to the wounded soldier and check under the bed (behind it) to find
'Protection Bell'.

 Now return to the room outside (the one after the first Mimic chest) and use
the bell you just got to open the door. Watch the scene as the party runs up
the stairs. At the top of the stairs, enter the door right in front of you and
watch the scene. Now go up the stairs and enter the second door. Open the
chests to find 'Tent' and 'Phoenix Down'.

 Proceed down the path and go around to find another Mimic. Now enter the
central door and you'll be outside once again, with 2 buildings. Enter the left
one to trigger a little scene and you'll obtain 'Mythril Spear'. Equip it right
away on Freya. Now enter the right building, open the chest at the back to find
'Lightning Staff'. This triggers a scene with Stiltzkin. Talk to him and buy
his goods for 333 Gil.

 Now speak to Atla and use Mognet. Give her the letter (finally) and you'll
receive 'Kupo Nut'...

   <vin> Even if you don't want to, please return to Gizamaluke's Grotto before
   the end of Disc 1 and give Moguta this Kupo Nut. If you don't, you'll miss a
   Kupo Nut and we don't want that, do we? You'll receive 'Phoenix Pinion' if
   you do so.

 Now she wants us to deliver a letter to Monev. Do it. Now, from the Mogshop,
buy a Barbut for both Steiner and Freya. Restock on items, use a tent and save
your game...

   <vin> Man, this has to be the most used Moogle yet, huh?! ;)

 Ok, leave the room and proceed N to trigger a scene. Pick whichever answer you
want and then a...

 |   Have Freya use Reis's Wind to  have Regen  on and make sure Zidane has  |

 |   As for her attacks,  Thunder Slash deals around 225 dmg.  Shock deals   |
 |  around 450 dmg.  to one character.  Her regular attack deals around 100  |
 |  dmg. Stock Break depletes your HP to 1, ending the fight.                |
 |                                                                           |

"Steiner? Are you mad at me?" -- Dagger


 After the first scenes of Disc 2, go E and enter the building. Watch the scene
in here and then speak to Nazna the Moogle. Give her Grimo's letter and you'll
receive 'Kupo Nut'...

   <vin> You'll only receive this Kupo Nut if you gave Moguta in Gizamaluke's
   Grotto the Kupo Nut Atla in Burmecia gave to you. If you didn't, you'll miss
   this Kupo Nut.

 She'll also give you a letter to Mochos the Moogle. Save your game if you want
to and speak to the S merchant. Buy an Air Racket (don't buy it if you have
Desert Boots equipped on Dagger so she can learn Scan), a Mythril Rod and a
Glass Armlet if you don't already have one. Now open the W chest to find
'Phoenix Down'.

 Speak now to the man on the left side of the room and the car going to
Lindblum departs. Now leave the building to find Cinna and Marcus. Return
inside the room to have the scene continue. Now speak to Marcus and the
scene'll continue. Also speak to Steiner. Now follow the guys and the scene
WILL continue. Now go inside the car.

 When you regain control, speak to Marcus again and you'll trigger a...

 |   Strategy:  Remember the Black  Waltz #3 from the Cargo Ship?  Remember  |
 |  how easy he was? He's as easy as back then, or probably easier since we  |
 |  now have Dagger to heal us up.  His lv.1  spells deal around 80 dmg. to  |
 |  one  character,  which isn't  much.  His physical  attack is  what  got  |
 |  somewhat stronger, dealing around 100 dmg. to one character.             |
 |                                                                           |
 |   He has a new spell called Freeze, which Freezes your character, making  |
 |  him unable to move (somewhat like Petrify), but if he/she's attacked on  |
 |  the next turn,  he/she'll  be shattered  in a million  pieces  and will  |
 |  remain out of combat for the rest of the fight.  The good thing is that  |
 |  he doesn't use his lv.2 spells here, nor he attacks Dagger.              |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Have  Dagger do  what she  does best,  Heal.  Use Cure on all whenever  |
 |  needed. Marcus should stick with stealing. Have him steal over and over  |
 |  until you  steal all 3 items  of the BW#3  (useful items for Vivi right  |
 |  there). Steiner should only attack him.  Once Marcus is done  stealing,  |
 |  have him join the attack to finish him off in 2 minutes XD.              |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 Watch the scene after the fight and now, buy whatever you need from Mary on
the E side and proceed N to the next area. Here you can go left to Dali and
right to Treno...

   <vin> You may return to the Dali area if you want to find the Friendly
   Monster Mu, and you can get 'Elixir' from the chest in the farm where the
   old lady was.

 Move along to Treno, cross the effed up bridge and go S before leaving the
area to find a chest with '1,610 Gil'. Now move along the path until you reach
the World Map.
  _____     _____     _____     _____     _____     _____     _____     _____
  ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯
 There are several things to do around here before entering Treno, so read
along. If you don't wanna do 'em, just skip along and start reading the Treno
section. Around Treno, in the flat area (not the forested area), you'll find
another Friendly Creature called Ghost. Give it a piece of Ore to receive 10 AP
and a 'Hi-Potion'.

 You can also find the Ragtime Mouse in the Forested area. Try answering some
questions. Let's also go to Quan's dwelling. From Treno, go E following the
forest and start going S along the forest. At the end, you'll find a cave which
is known as ? (Quan's Dwelling). Enter it. Do you remember who Quan is? No? Try
and remember.

 In here, follow the path and when you reach the fork at the end of the area,
go right to find a chest with 'Ether'. Now go left from the fork, behind the
pillar and down the rope. Down here, move to the S side of the sandy area and
you'll find the Stellazzio Coin 'Scorpio' on the floor. Now open the chest to
find 'Ether'. If you drink from the pond, you'll fully recover your HP and MP,
which is very nice indeed.

 Return up the rope and to the next area. In here, go up the ladder to find
'Ether'. Now examine the right side of the table to read some very curious
info. Move on to the next area. Examine the clock and the edge of the "bridge"
if you want to, then exit Quan's Dwelling. Return all the way through the
forested area and enter...

"So, this Tootsie's gonna give us Supersoft?" -- Baku
                                                      "... It's Tot." -- Marcus


 Alrighty, Treno, the Dark City. Watch the scene at the start and when you're
playing as Steiner...

   <ATE> Treno Tradition [Dagger]
         Ambition [Marcus]

 Make sure to watch the Treno Tradition ATE IN THIS FIRST SCREEN. You'll lose
1,000 Gil >_>. Anyway, check the W side of the area to find a fountain. You can
throw in 10 Gil. Throw 10 Gil 13 times to find 'Gemini'. Now move W from this
first screen and...

   <ATE> Pursuit [Dagger]

 Make sure to watch this ATE. Anyway, once it's over, go W to find a lone chest
with 'Mythril Dagger'. Equip it on... oh, he's not here >_>... XD. Return and
go down the stairs following Dagger. In this area...

   <ATE> Confusion [Dagger]

 In this area, go N and enter the big building on the NW corner. In the
hallway, speak to the four-armed man and he'll run away giving you 'Power
Belt'...

   <vin> DO NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT equip it on Steiner. He has better things
   to learn first. Leave this to Zidane and Freya when we get to play with
   them again.

 Now return to the entrance, where Steiner was left alone and head to the
right...

   <ATE> Meeting Place [Marcus & Baku]
         Unexpected Visitor [Dagger]

 Go down the ladder on the right and open the chests to find 'Yeti Card' and '1
Gil'. Now check behind this item shop to find a hidden Stellazzio Coin,
'Taurus'. Return up the ladder and go N to the next area. Go down the stairs to
have a Moogle fly out being chased by a dog. He's Mogrich. He'll receive a
letter from Stiltzkin.

 Save your game and enter the huge castle-like building on the right. This is
the weapon shop. Buy a Mythril Sword for Steiner, 4 Bone Wrists (Dagger,
Zidane, Quina and Vivi), 4 Bandanas (Dagger, Zidane, Quina and Vivi), a Chain
Plate for Zidane and 2 Chain Mails (Steiner and Freya). Ask the owner for the
monster below and tell him you wanna fight it.

 Before doing so, though, make sure Steiner has equipped the Blood Sword
(you'll receive that from the Stellazzio, read below) and the Gold Choker. If
you don't equip the Gold Choker, you'll die from one Aera. The Blood Sword hits
for around 650 dmg. draining them so you don't have to heal yourself. You'll
receive 'Tonberry Card' as a reward... wow.

 Leave the place and go N to the next area. This is the Auction House. You'll
find Dagger in here. She'll rejoin, which is good =D...

   <vin> In here, there are 2 items very well appreciated if you buy them. The
   Madain's Ring and the Reflect Ring. Try buying both, which may be quite
   expensive. I spent 8,800 Gil for the Madain's Ring and 14,500 for the
   Reflect Ring. Well worth it, IMO. You could buy them for a somewhat cheaper
   price, but I just like to add 2,000 Gil every time I bid XD.

   You can also grab a Pearl Rouge for around 10,000 Gil, Fairy Earrings for
   around 10,000 Gil and another Magician's Robe.

 Return to the previous area and move S to the next one (not up the stairs).
This is where the Tetra Game Tournaments are held, which will be of big
importance for the game later on. Go W to the next area.

 Oh, look where we are. Go N to the next area and enter the only building. This
is Queen Stella, who is looking for the Stellazzio. You have 5 at the moment,
from which you'll receive:

 1 :: 1,000 Gil
 2 :: Phoenix Pinion
 3 :: 2,000 Gil
 4 :: Blood Sword
 5 :: 5,000 Gil

 That Blood Sword is very nice. Make sure to learn Armor Break from Steiner's
Mythril Sword before equipping it. Now, in the building where you found the
four-armed man, there's a Synthesis Shop at the end. Bring the following:

 o Magus Hat x1
 o Rubber Helm x1
 o Linen Cuirass x2
 o Soft x2

 Make yourself a Cachusha and some Gold Chokers. If Zidane or Vivi won the
Festival of the Hunt at Lindblum on Disc 1, you won't have the Coral Ring. If
that's the case, make sure to make one so Freya can learn Lancer. Return now to
the entrance and go right. In here, go left and enter the house. Rest here in
the Inn if you need to and speak to Marcus at the bottom.

 After the little chat, run to the bottom while avoiding Steiner. Watch the
scenes and you'll meet Doctor Tot. I laughed so much in the chat between Baku
and Marcus XD. Anyway, return to the entrance of Treno and go W. Go to the W
side of this area and you'll find the tower Tot talked about.

 Move to the top to trigger a scene with Tot. During the scene, you'll receive
'Supersoft'. Speak to Tot once again to have the scene continue. Move along
with Tot...

   <ATE> Crime and Punishment [Cinna & Baku]

"You may endanger the princess if you keep telling yourself that." -- Tot


 As you gain control, speak to Mochos the Moogle and give him the letter from
Nazna. Save your game if so desired and I recommend trying to learn as many
skills as possible from the accessories you just got, as well as leveling up,
since we won't be playing as these characters in some time again, so trying to
level them up past the levels of Zidane and the rest is a smart thing to do ;).

 Anyway, from the entrance, move SW, open the chest to find 'Chain Plate' and
open the chest on the left to find 'Phoenix Down'. Now pull the lever next to
the chest and return to the previous area. Now move to the SE area and move N
here to trigger a little scene with Tot. Now pull the chain Tot tells you about
and now follow Tot.

 Go left from Tot to find a white lever. Before pulling it, remove all the
equipment from Marcus (or give him crappy ones), remove the accessories from
both Steiner and Dagger, equip these last 2 with Antibody and NOW pull the
lever to trigger a scene and a...

 |  standby at all times and  Cure when needed.  That's all that she should  |

 |   Steiner  should  focus  on  being  on  standby  until  Marcus robs the  |
 |  Ralvurahva of its Mythril Fork.  Once done so, have him attack over and  |

 |   It's Blizzara spell deals around 200 dmg.  to one character,  which is  |

 Now we're playing as Zidane and co. Make sure to outfit them with what you
bought at Treno. Give Zidane the Fairy Earrings ASAP so he can learn Level Up.
Freya should have the Cachusha to learn Ability Up. Anyway, at the World Map,
before anything, return to Gizamaluke's Grotto and speak to Moguta. Give him
the Kupo Nut you got from Nazna to get 'Phoenix Pinion'.

 Return to the World Map and from here, go W and you'll see a huge sand
tornado. Approach it to enter...

 Watch the scene and the FMV as you enter the area. Move N to the first area.
                                 Examine the lever on the right side to open
o---------------.-------------o  the door. From here, check the right side of
|     Enemy     | Blue  Magic |  this next area to find a chest with 'Phoenix
|---------------|-------------|  Down'. Move N to the next area. Here, open the
| Carrion  Worm |  Auto-Life  |  S hidden chest to find 'Magician Shoes'. Equip
|   Dragonfly   | Matra Magic |  them on either Freya or Quina and open the
|      Zuu      | White  Wind |  chest to the N behind the tree to find 'Ice
o---------------'-------------o  Staff'.

 Now go E and exit this area. Go NE all the way to the next area (ignore the
vine going up). Open the chest to find 'Ether'. Now examine the hole S of the
chest and put the hand inside. Return to the previous area, go up the vines now
to the next area.

 This area is now empty, only for an already opened chest. Move W to the next
area. Go W at the start to find a chest with 'Needle Fork'. Now go N from the
entrance and open the chest to find 'Tent'. Go directly W from this chest to
find Monev the Moogle. Give him Atla's letter to receive 'Kupo Nut'. Save it
for later.

 Now go N up the branches to the next area. Here, go N at the first fork to
find a chest at the end with 'Flame Staff'. Return to the previous fork and go
E to the next area. Cross the bridge to find yourself in some sort of cave.
Behind the trunk in front of you is a hidden chest with 'Desert Boots'. Now go
NW from this chest and into the little cave to find 'Mythril Vest'. Equip it on
Zidane as soon as he learns Devil Killer from the Chain Plate. Open the chest
on the E side of the cave to find 'Remedy'.

 There are 2 exits of this cave. The middle one (towards the BG) and the W one.
Move to the middle one, open the chest out here to find 'Mythril Gloves'. Now
move N to the end of the path to find a lever. Pull it and return to the cave.
Move out following the W path. Open the chest to find 'Potion' and follow the
NE path. You'll find a chest at the end of it containing 'Elixir'.

 Return to the fork in the previous area and go NW to the next one. Open the
chests in here without falling into the whirlpools to find 'Hi-Potion' and '900
Gil'. If you fall into one of the whirlpools, you'll fight Sand Scorpions.
Proceed W to the next area. Follow the path, open the chest in the area with
the ladder to find 'Gysahl Greens', and go up the ladder to enter...

"Then allow me to shatter your delusions of grandeur." -- Beatrix


 Watch the scene with the Oracles as you enter. Say no when the oracle
volunteers to tour you around. A very long time it takes to watch the tour...
and kinda boring. Anyway, from the entrance, go E behind the oracle and you'll
be at a huge sand whirlpool. Check behind the board to find '970 Gil'. Return
to the previous area and go N up the FIRST stairs. Check the right side to find
'Phoenix Pinion'.

 Go up and at the fork, go E...

   <ATE> No Yummy-Yummies! [Quina]

 Watch this ATE, WATCH IT to receive something special. Now check the flowers
on the right to find 'Ore'. From here, go W to the next area, Plaza de Agua
(Water Plaza)...

   <ATE> Don't Hate Me [Vivi]

 Here, check the area to find a hidden 'Thunder Gloves'. Return to the previous
area, go N up the stairs and speak to the Soldier Dan. He set up a shop. Mmm...
shopping time. Buy: Partisan (Freya], 4 Mythril Armlet [Zidane, Vivi, Quina and
Dagger], Thunder Gloves [Steiner], 3 Mage's Hat [Vivi, Quina and Dagger], 2
Mythril Helm [Freya and Steiner] and 2 Mythril Armor [Freya and Steiner].

   <vin> Have Quina equipped with the Silk Robe you'll get in a minute while
   Vivi has the Magician's Robe equipped.

 Now enter the Inn behind him. Check the left side of the counter to find 'Echo
Screen'. Now check the right side (before going up the stairs) to find '1,250
Gil'. Go up the stairs and check the drawer next to the bed to find 'Ether'.
Now speak to Mopli the Moogle and pick Mognet and you'll receive a letter from
Ruby.

 Save your game if you want to, leave the Inn and go NW across the bridge to
the next area, where...

   <ATE> I-I Haven't Hurt Anyone (after watching Don't Hate Me) [Vivi]

 Speak to the maiden here to buy items. Examine the right side of the area
(where the mushrooms are) to find 'Phoenix Pinion'. Return to the Inn area and
go NE, pick 'Remedy' on the right side of the stairs and now go to the next
area, where Quina was in the ATE...

   <ATE> There a Mushroom! (after watching No Yummy-Yummies!) [Quina]

 From here, return to the entrance and move E to the huge sand whirlpool to
find Quina, all sad ='(. Speak to her to trigger a hilarious scene. We're now
at the trunk again. Mmm... there are chests though ;). Open the one in front of
you to find 'Silk Robe'. The one that's kinda hidden has 'Magician Shoes'. Jump
down and make your way back up to Cleyra.

 Once you're here again, return to the area NE of the Inn, where the 2 Maidens
are and go N from here to find the Cathedral. Check the N side (right of the
entrance) to find 'Echo Screen'. Check left of the sign near the S entrance to
find 'Gysahl Greens'. Now go inside the cathedral and once inside, check the
left of the entrance to find a hidden 'Yellow Scarf'.

 Speak to the oracles here and they'll tell you to move on to the Inn. Go there
to trigger a scene. So there's a problem with the Antlion. Move to the entrance
and go right to the huge sand whirlpool to trigger a scene with a familiar face
and a...

 |   Strategy: Ok, the Antlion is pretty simply, although it hits hard. His  |
 |  Counter Horn attack counters  the character that  physically attacks it  |
 |  for around 350 dmg.  Trouble Mucus is  the same attack the Carrion Worm  |
 |  had at the Trunk when you were climbing it.  Deals around 150 dmg.  and  |
 |  inflicts Trouble.  Fira deals around 250 dmg. and Sandstorm is the same  |
 |  as the Sand Golem,  which can inflict Darkness and deals dmg.  to leave  |
 |  you in critical.                                                         |
 |                                                                           |
 |   As for the strategy,  you know what Zidane should do.  We're aiming on  |
 |  that  Gold Helm the Antlion is carrying.  Make  sure you get  it at all  |
 |  cost.  While you're stealing, have Vivi Focus turn after turn and leave  |
 |  the rest  of the  party on  standby to  heal (Freya's  Reis's Wind  and  |
 |  Quina's White Wind).  Once you've stolen the Gold Helm,  have Vivi spam  |
 |  Blizzara over  and over  (which should take only 1 or 2),  Freya should  |
 |  stick  with  Lancer/Reis's  Wind and Quina  will be your healer for the  |
 |  rest of the party.                                                       |

 |   You can also have Vivi use Sleep  (learnt from the Oak Staff  from the  |
 |  Chocograph) on the Antlion while Zidane steals,  if you want of course.  |
 |  Like I said, not a hard battle.                                          |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 Watch the scenes that follow the fight. When you regain control, you'll be
moving Freya. Equip her the new armor/weapon and return to the cathedral. Enter
the room with the harp and check on the left side behind the pillar to find a
hidden 'Ether'. Now check the N center of the room to find 'Ore'. Also, check
behind the harp to find 'Phoenix Pinion'.

 Speak to the High Priest to receive 'Emerald'. Equip it right away on Freya
and move on to the Inn. Speak to Mopli and he'll receive a letter from Monev,
from the trunk. Now buy Hi-Potion, Ether and Phoenix Pinion for 444 Gil from
Stiltzkin. Rest at the Inn for free if needed and head to Cleyra's entrance to
trigger a scene and you'll return to the trunk.

 Equip on Vivi the new equipment and head down...

   <vin> Taken from my buddy Shotgunnova's guide. Equip your Man Eater here on
   the available characters to deal massive dmg. to the upcoming enemies.

 Move along the path and you'll see that the sand whirlpools have stopped. Wow.
You'll now have to face 2 Alexandrian Soldiers. Nothing to worry about. Now go
E to the next area, to be ambushed once again. Kill 'em and go S into the cave.
In here, you'll ambushed again by 2 more Soldiers. Dammit. Now go S and a scene
triggers while you're at the bridge.

 Oh man, the town's in danger. After the scene, you'll fight a Black Mage Type
B. After the fight, go E to the area where you fought the Antlion and you'll
find the Moogles there. Speak to Mopli and he'll want you to deliver a letter
to Serino for him. Do it.

 Save your game and return to the previous area. You'll have to fight some
Alexandrian Soldiers, then some Type B. Now continue and when you need to take
a decision, pick "Let's head right!", then "Let's go left!". Fight the Soldiers
and the Type B and now "Cross the bridge to the right!". Kill some more
Soldiers and watch the scenes.

 Now speak to the persons you rescued to obtain 'Remedy', 'Phoenix Down',
'Nymph Card', 'Elixir', 'Zuu Card', 'Ether' and 'Phoenix Pinion'. Now speak to
Mopli, save your game, pick up the letter if you haven't already, prepare
yourself and exit the cathedral to trigger a scene and a...

 |  well we  actually only need  the Ice  Brand.  Start by having Vivi cast  |

 |   Have Freya use Reis's Wind to  have Regen  on and make sure Zidane has  |
 |  his Bandit  skill on.  Quina should  use Mighty Guard  just to  protect  |
 |  yourself a  little more  of Beatrix's attacks.  Zidane should stick to   |
 |  steal the items, while Quina and Freya stick to heal the party.          |

 |   As for her attacks,  Thunder Slash deals around 450 dmg.  Shock deals   |
 |  around 900 dmg.  to one character.  Her regular attack deals around 100  |
 |  dmg. Stock Break depletes your HP to 1, ending the fight.                |
 |                                                                           |

 Watch the scenes that follow and Quina leaves the party. Watch the FMV with
the b**** Brahne and you'll be at the Red Rose. Watch the scenes with Beatrix
and when you regain control, follow Beatrix up the stairs and more scenes
trigger. Now follow the rest and soon you'll see a Moogle run from you. Follow
it (to where you heard the talk with Brahne) and you'll find Serino the Moogle.

 Speak to her and give her Mopli's letter. She'll also give you a letter for
Moodon. Receive it. Save your game and now follow Vivi. Use the pods and you'll
be at...

 We start as Marcus and Steiner. You now have to center the gravity, meaning
you need to start swinging from left to right to bust the wall. When the cell
is going left, press left on the D-pad. When it's going right, move it right.
Once you bust into the wall, run to the left, ignore the Alexandrian Soldiers
that come after you, go up the long ladder and W into the next area.

 A scene triggers here where Steiner meets up with Zidane. Yay! Watch the scene
and now we have 30 minutes to rescue Dagger. Now, equip Steiner with anything
you have new for him (which should be basically everything), exit the dungeons
and you'll now remember this place. If you go W from here and enter the W
tower, you'll find Weimar and Breireicht.

 Speak to them if you want, return and go N. Remember where the Queen's Chamber
is? No? Remember where you went up the stairs at the beginning of the game and
bumped into Dagger when trying to flee the castle? Well, enter THAT door...

   <vin> If you enter the library area, you'll hear someone talking in the SW
   corner. If you try to listen, you'll fight Tantarian. It's a optional-boss
   and is rather annoying and since you have a time limit, I recommend you
   ignoring it for the moment since we can fight it once again later in the
   game without the time limit.

 In here, enter the middle room (right in front of you), that's the Queen's
Chamber. In here, examine the purple candle to open a secret passage. Wait for
the moving path to line up, jump and jump again to grab the 2 chests 'Tent' and
'Ice Brand'. Equip it on Steiner right away (just in case you didn't steal it
from Beatrix).

 Start going down the stairs and when you get to the bottom, go N into the door
to trigger a scene and a...

 |                                                                           |
 |   So, at the start of the fight, have Vivi cast Slow on both of them and  |
 |  have Zidane steal their items. None of the items are of über importance, |
 |  so don't steal them if you so do desire, but that's easy and quick cash. |
 |  Just  keep  on attacking  one of  them (Thorn for  a quicker match) and  |
 |  it'll end in like 3-5 minutes.                                           |
 |                                                                           |

 Watch the little scene and now approach Dagger to trigger another scene...

   <ATE> Friendship [Marcus]

 Once you're holding Dagger, backtrack, speak to Mosh and read the letter from
Kupo. Save your game, backtrack all the way to the Queen's Chamber to trigger
another scene and another...

 |   Strategy: Ok, the hotness Beatrix.  The third and last fight with her.  |
 |  She cannot be defeated. Don't even try.  What you should try,  however,  |
 |  is  to steal all  3 items  of  hers...  well we  actually only need the  |
 |  Survival Vest.  Start  by having  Vivi cast  Slow on her,  because this  |
 |  fight has a time limit, even if you can't see the timer.                 |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Have Freya use Reis's Wind to  have Regen  on and make sure Zidane has  |
 |  his Bandit  skill on.  Quina should  use Mighty Guard  just to  protect  |
 |  yourself a  little more  of Beatrix's attacks.  Zidane should stick to   |
 |  steal the items, while Quina and Freya stick to heal the party.          |
 |                                                                           |
 |   As for her attacks,  Thunder Slash deals around 450 dmg.  Shock deals   |
 |  around 900 dmg.  to one character.  Her regular attack deals around 100  |
 |  dmg. Stock Break depletes your HP to 1, ending the fight.                |
 |                                                                           |

 Watch the scene after the fight and now you'll fight a Bandersnatch. You'll be
able to use Beatrix in this fight... which is awesome. Now, as Zidane and co.,
equip Dagger with the best equipment you got and start descending while
fighting the Bandersnatchs and the Black Mages Type C.

 When you fight a Bandersnatch at the bottom before leaving this area, remove
Steiner accessory since he'll be unusable for quite some time. Kill the
Bandersnatch with the 3-party and now, after a little scene, you'll have to
kill some more with Freya and Beatrix. Remove Freya's accessory as well since
she'll be unusable for a while as well. When you regain control of Zidane, enter
the room where Dagger was and speak to Mosh.

 He's ask you to give a letter to Monty. Do so. Save your game, use a Tent if
you need to and return to the previous area. Go S this time to the next area. A
scene triggers as you run forward. Nice! Blank's moving again! =D Keep watching
the scenes and a... triggers...

 |   Strategy: Ok, this boss is so very easy.  Stab deals around 60 dmg. to  |
 |  one character.  Ultra Sound Wave inflicts Mini status on one character.  |
 |  Thundara deals around 80 dmg.  Earth Power deals around  90 dmg. to all  |

 |   As for the fight, have Zidane steal all 3 items while Vivi hits him to  |
 |  have him curled up.  Dagger should stay on  standby for the time being.  |
 |  Once Zidane steals all 3 items from Ralvuimago, have either him or Vivi  |
 |  cast Blizzara to deal some massive dmg.                                  |

 After the scenes, return to the area with the beat up wagon and you'll find
Ramuh's historian which gives you "Beginning". Return to the previous area,
speak to Monty the Moogle, give him the letter, read it and save your game.
From the beginning of the area (backtrack a little bit), go left and you'll
find one of Ramuh's "ghosts". He gives you the "Human". Now go down the log
where the moogle is and open the S chest to get 'Mythril Vest'. Now go N and
check the right side as you proceed to find Ramuh's "Cooperation" side of the
story.

 Now go NW to the next area. Open the chest of the left to find Ramuh's
"Silence" and 'The Ogre'. Now go N to the next area. Right here, you'll find
Ramuh's "Hero" next to the log going up. Return to the previous area and go up
the log this time. Here, go N and you'll come across a "?" bubble. Jump down to
to open the chest with 'Mythril Armlet'.

 Now return here and speak to Ramuh. Tell him the story in the following order:

 o Beginning
 o Cooperation
 o Silence
 o Human or Hero

 Watch the scenes and you'll receive 'Peridot'. Choose not to jump when
prompted and return to Monty the Moogle. Choose Mognet and read... Stiltzkin...
letter. Oh, man... poor Stiltzkin. Anyway, return and now jump down. A set of
scenes and FMVs trigger here, which are very... very good. After 'em, you'll
end up at...

"You big dope! It's not just a rag! <Gwok!>" -- Cid


 After Vivi hides, enter the Inn's second floor and give Moodon Serino's
letter. Read Ruby's letter as well. Moodon has a request to give a letter to
Moonte. Do it. Now save your game here and exit the Inn. Head over to the
Business district (where all the shops are) and you'll find Artania. A scene
triggers with him.

 During the scenes with Cid, you'll receive '3,000 Gil'. Time to buy some
weapons/armor. There's nothing new in the armory. At the Synthesis Shop,
however, there are several things you need:

  o Mage Masher x1
  o Mythril Dagger x1
  o Needle Fork x1
  o Barbut x1
  o Glass Buckle x1
  o Chain Mail x1

 Go get these at the weapon shop and make: Exploda, Barette and a spare Power
Belt. Now go S from the plaza...

   <ATE> The Third Jewel [Alexandrian Soldiers]

 In this area, enter the NW house (near the blocked path) to find 'Ether' and
'Phoenix Pinion'. Now leave the house and check the blocked path next to the
house to find 'Lindblum Card'. Now go S to the first area and ride the Air Cab
to the Theater District. Leave the building as you arrive and enter the SE
house.

 Open the chest to find 'Ore', leave and head to Tantalus' hideout. Open the
chests to find '340 Gil', '262 Gil' and '993 Gil'. Leave the hideout and speak
to Lowell. He'll move to Alexandria to help out Ruby...

   <vin> This'll only happen if you read Ruby's letter with Moodon at the Inn.

 Now return to the main in the plaza at the Business district and tell him
you're ready...

   <ATE> Brahne's Fleet Arrives [Lindblum Soldiers]

 Watch the scenes after the ATE and you'll receive 'World Map'...

   <ATE> <Gwok-gwok!> How infuriating! [Alexandrian Soldiers]

 Here, at the Dragon's Gate, speak to Moonte the Moogle and give him Moodon's
letter. Save your game with him, buy items/weapons/armor with the fellow there,
open the hidden chest on the right to find 'Bandana' and leave to the World
Map.

 At the World Map, head to the Chocobo Forest if you want to play some Hot &
Cold. If not, head over to Gizamaluke's Grotto. Go to Moguta, give him the Kupo
Nut you got way back to get 'Elixir'. Now leave the Grotto and head over to
Qu's Marsh.

 Once you arrive, head over to the pond where you first met Quina and speak to
him/her. She'll join the party. Now go to Quale's house and speak to him. Leave
the house and go E. A little scene triggers and you'll find the excavation
site...

   <vin> Make sure you cover everything so far here in the continent. You won't
   be able to come back until Disc 3. You've been warned. MAKE SURE TO BRING
   THE ABANDONED BEACH CHOCOGRAPH WITH YOU!

 Go inside to find...

"(Quit flirting with her!)" -- Dagger
                                        "Yes, ma'am" -- Zidane


 As you get inside Fossil Roo, start moving forward and an enemy appears behind
you - which will start chasing you of course.

 |   Strategy: Ok,  this is one battle that should  be avoided at all cost.  |
 |  It's pretty annoying and you get nothing in return.  He won't even stay  |
 |  down after defeated. Yes,  it gets back up and start chasing you.  What  |
 |  makes him  annoying are  its attacks.  It has Lv.5 Death,  which  kills  |
 |  immediately  all characters  whose lv.  are multiples of 5  (5, 10, 15,  |
 |  etc). Death kills a character immediately.                               |
 |                                                                           |
 |   He also uses Thundara, which is very rare for it to use.  Its physical  |
 |  attack is also powerful, so be careful. Use any of Vivi's -ra spells to  |
 |  take care of it in one hit.                                              |

 Anyway, run away from the Armodullahan by crossing the axe-moving objects
without being hit by them. Cross a couple of screens until a scene triggers.

 |   Since Lani will be attacking Dagger for most of the battle,  so a good  |

 |  Auto-Potion heal 300 HP everytime she's attacked.                        |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Now first of all, have Vivi  cast  Slow  on her.  This  will slow  her  |
 |  attacks on you. So what to do with her magic? Well, since we have Quina  |
 |  let's use her.  If you have Magic Hammer,  which you should,  use it on  |
 |  Lani to reduce her MP. I used it once and dealt 4,555 MP dmg.            |
 |                                                                           |
 |   With  that  done,  she  only  has  physical  attacks,  which are  meh,  |
 |  pathetic.  Now have  Zidane take  his  time and steal the  items,  most  |
 |  importantly,  that  Gladius.  The Coral Sword is wonderful too,  but we  |
 |  don't have Steiner to equip it.                                          |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 Once she runs away, equip the Gladius to learn Annoy and Lucky Seven...

   <vin> I know the Exploda is stronger, but use the weaker weapon right now
   and once you learn Annoy, switch to the Exploda, which also teaches you
   Lucky Seven.

 Now, from where we're left, go W to return from whece we came. Run all the way
                                  to the entrance of Fossil Roo and examine the
o----------------.-------------o  room where Armodullahan was hidden to find
|      Enemy     | Blue  Magic |  a hidden 'Elixir'. Now return to the area
|----------------|-------------|  after the fight with Lani and go N to the
| Feather Circle |  Lv.4 Holy  |  next area.
|     Griffin    | White  Wind |
o----------------'-------------o   In here, go W and pick up one of those
                                   yellow flowers. Now go right a little bit
and press X when the "!" appears to ride the Gargant. When you get off, go N to
the next area. In here, speak to the Treasure Hunter. After the info of the
switches and the Gargants, go S and buy "Phoenix Pinion, Remedy and Ether" for
555 Gil from Stiltzkin.  Now speak to Mogki the Moogle and choose Mognet. He'll
receive a letter from Kuppo.

 Mogki also sells items, so buy whatever you need. Use some Tents if you need
to and save your game. Now go E from the moogles to the next area. Ride the
Gargant here and proceed N to the next area to find a lone chest with 'Fairy
Earrings'. Return to the moogles now. Now go N to the next area.

 Ride the Gargant in this room and go N to find Switch No. 1. Now return, use
the Gargant and when you get off, follow the upper path to find a lone chest
with 'Ether'. Return and follow the lower path this time. You'll be in front of
Switch No. 2 where the Treasure Hunter is. Push it and return to Switch No. 1,
which you should push again.

 Now return to the moogles and go E once again. Ride the Gargant once more and
you'll find another Treasure Hunter. He sells weapons, which are old, so go N
to the next area. You'll find Switch No. 4. Flip it, go E, take the Gargant, go
E to find a lone chest with 'Lamia's Tiara'. Return to Switch No. 4, flip it
once again and take the Gargant.

 In this area, climb the vines and cross to the right. If you fall, climb the
vines and enter the upper right area (not the entrance at the bottom). You'll
find a lone Treasure Hunter. He'll let you dig around here for a Potion. Once
you got the hammer, start hammering the upper right side of the area around 9
times (where all those boulders are) to find Kuppo the Moogle.

 Choose Mognet and you'll have to deliver a letter to Kupo for him. Sure, why
not. Save your game and keep on hammering the walls to your heart's content...

   <vin> Note that you can dig up Madain's Rings here. They are rare, but are
   worth it.

 Now, once you quit, go SE from the entrance to this mining site and in this
area, examine the SW corner of the area to find a hidden 'Survival Vest'. Equip
it on Zidane ASAP. Now return to the area with the pond and the vines. Climb
the vines, go up all the way, then left until you get to Switch No. 3. Flip it,
go to the bottom and NOW go E to the lower area.

 Ride the Gargant here and you can finally reach the sunlight...

 We're finally at the Outer Continent. Go NW from Fossil Roo and you'll see
                                something on top of roots over the canyon. This
o-------------.--------------o  is our next destination, Conde Petie. Before
|    Enemy    |  Blue Magic  |  going there though, circle the area and when
|-------------|--------------|  you get to a Qu's Marsh, enter it if you want
|   Cactuar   | 1000 Needles |  to and eat some frogs. That's all there is to

 [_] ºch [Phoenix Pinion x9, Phoenix Down x5, Peridot x12, Diamond
                      Gloves]

 Go SE from the Chocobo's footprints and dig around the beach to find the
Chocograph's chest. Now that you got the Chocograph, go W from the Qu's Marsh
and enter...

 When you gain control...

   <ATE> Vivi and the Couple [Vivi]
         Quina Accused [Quina]

 Check NW as soon as you gain control (behind the first Dwarf) to find a hidden
'2,700 Gil'. From here, go E to the next area. In here, enter the right room,
where Quina was...

   <ATE> Dagger and William [Dagger]

 Now speak to Mogmatt the Moogle and pick Mognet. Accept the letter for Suzuna.
Save your game and buy items if you need/want to. Now check the S corner of the
room to find a hidden 'Phoenix Pinion'. Now go up the stairs...

   <ATE> Quina Can't Communicate (only if you saw Quina Accused)[Quina]

 Speak to Vivi to trigger...

   <ATE> Hungry Bryan [Mr. Pyntie-het]

 Get on top of the Kirkboat (the boat in the center of the room) and examine
here to find 'Diamond'. Return to the item shop to trigger a scene. We're now
at the entrance, but before going, get to the item shop and go NE. Here's the
weapon/armor shops. Here, buy: 3 Magic Armlets (Dagger, Vivi and Quina), 1
Lamia's Tiara (Quina), 2 Ritual Hats (Zidane and Vivi). That's it. The best
things are in the next town.

 Now leave Conde Petie.

 At the World Map, go E towards the Qu's Marsh and once you get here, go SE
towards the beach and follow the grassy part that leads to a dried up forest.
In this forest, Magdalene Forest, another Friendly Creature appears, Ladybug.
She wants 2 pieces of Ore. Give 'em to her to get 20 AP and an Ether. Pretty
nice for 2 Ores, no?

 Anyway, approach the circular forested area (different color). As you enter,
read what Zidane has to say. Anyway, go right, right, left and right. After a
little scene, you'll be at...

 Watch the scene as you enter and these Black Mages are somewhat awkward.
Anyway, now we're alone >_>...

   <ATE> Life on the Run [Vivi and Dagger]
         Gourmand's Nose [Quina]
         Everyday Life [Black Mages]

 From the entrance go left and check the right side of the door to find a
hidden 'Elixir'. Now go NE following the lower path...

   <ATE> Different Language (only if you saw Life on the Run)[Vivi]
         Visitor, Not Invader (only if you saw Life on the Run)[Dagger]
         Life Cycle [Quina]

 Now speak to Mogryo and pick Mognet. Agree to deliver the letter to Mocchi.
Enter the hut and speak to Quina. Check the right side to find a hidden 'Gysahl
Green'. Now return to the entrance and go NE, following the upper path. Here,
enter the NE building. This is the Inn. Examine the area around the beds to
find the Stellazzio 'Virgo'. Leave and enter the other building.

 Check on the left side of the counter to find a hidden 'Ether'. This is the
Item Shop. The sell Hi-Potions, finally. Buy some if you want and leave to the
SW. Outside, enter the adjacent room. A little scene with Dagger and the 2
Black Mages triggers. This is the Synthesis Shop. There are new things to do
here, so make sure to bring:

  o Mythril Dagger x2
  o Lamia's Tiara x1
  o Multina Racket x1

 The good thing is that we bought several things at Treno's Auction House (and
the weapon shop is the building on the left at the entrance). Otherwise, we
would have to make 'em here. Make Extension and Rune Tooth. These are the only
new things, but please make at least one of each accessory. Never now when
you'll need them.

 Open the hidden chest behind the Black Mage to find '2,000 Gil'. Now go up the
ladder in here to the rooftops. Up here, open the hidden chest on the N side to
find '843 Gil'. Move to the S side of the rooftops and a "!" appears. Eavsdrop
the Black Mages. Now go outside the Synth Shop and go left to trigger a scene
with Vivi. Now go left to the next area and speak to the Black Mage on the
right, Mr. 288.

 Return to the Inn and speak to Vivi. Decide to rest and watch the really nice
scene. After the scene and everyone rejoins, head to the Item Shop and ask him
for the usual. Go up the ladder and open the chest up here to find 'Black
Belt'. Now leave the Black Mage Village and return to...

"Yes, yes... anything for my lovely wife!" -- Zidane


 Watch the scene as you enter and Quina leaves the party... but the little girl
joins =D. Her name's Eiko, and she'll be named that way for the rest of the
game and guide, ok? Eiko's pretty similar to Dagger, but she is more of a mage
than a summoner...

   <vin> Remember all those Phoenix Pinion we've been gathering? Well, Eiko's
   the one that can equip 'em. She learns the summon Phoenix from them, which
   inflicts Fire dmg. to all enemies and revives all KO'ed party members.

 I recommend equipping Eiko with: Golem's Flute (Auto-Regen, Cura and Life),
Steepled Hat (Protect), Glass Armlet (Antibody), Silk Robe (Ability Up,
Loudmouth) and Sapphire (Fenrir). Anyway, from where you regain control, go
left and up the path (from where Quina jumped). Go up the vine here to find a
chest with 'Remedy'...

   <vin> If you use a Summon with Eiko (Fenrir and/or Phoenix), a little chat
   triggers between Dagger and Zidane.

 Go E from the Remedy and examine the stone on the right to find 'Blue Stone'.
Now return to where you gained control and go E to the next area. Go up the
vines in front of you and go left to find a chest with 'Tent' and a stone with
'Red Stone'. Return down the vines in the previous area and go E to the next
one.

 Here, quickly run forward and catch an Oglop. DO IT!...

   <vin> You can trade this Oglop back at Madain Sari for an 'Oglop Card', just
   so you know.

 Now, in the next area, speak to Stiltzkin and buy Magic Tag, Tent and Ether
for 666 Gil. Speak to Suzuna and give her the letter from Mogmatt. You'll
receive 'Kupo Nut' for the mail. Use a Tent(s), save your game and go left from
the Moogles. Follow the path to trigger a scene.

 Once it's over, go right to trigger another scene and a...

 |   Strategy: Ok,  Hilgigars is  pretty tough,  and that's because he hits  |
 |  hard.  You could probably  finish him  in a couple of  turns being that  |
 |  Zidane deals around  1,000 dmg.  by now.  Anyway, we'll be wanting that  |
 |  Fairy Flute for Eiko.  Have Dagger use Float  on all the party and also  |
 |  have Dagger cast Silence on Hilgigars.  Hilgigars can use Earthquake to  |
 |  deal  around  300  dmg.  to  all  party.  This  is why we used Float on  |
 |  everyone.                                                                |

 |   Hilgigars can use Curaga to heal over 2,000 HP with one cast,  being a  |
 |  pain in the ass.  He has 3 other physical attacks that deal quite a lot  |
 |  of dmg. (around 400 dmg.),  so make sure to cast Protect on everyone as  |
 |  well  and keep 'em healed.  You have to  white mages/summoners  now, so  |
 |  make sure one casts Cura on all the party and the other uses Ramuh.      |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Vivi  should  cast  Slow  on Hilgigars and  alternate between  Bio and  |
 |  Thundara.  It is known that  the Fairy Flute is  really tough to steal.  |
 |  Try a couple of times. If you simply can't steal it, just ignore it for  |
 |  now. We can get one later.                                               |

Stone'. Now go NE and in this next area, follow the lower-smaller root to find
'Ether' and 'Green Stone'. Now return to where the Moogles are and exit through
the right path. You'll find a shrine here. Put in all 4 Colored Stones you got
to obtain 'Moonstone'.

 Now return to the area where you fought Hilgigars. Follow the upper-larger
root to get to the World Map.

"Grandpa... I don't wanna be alone anymore." -- Eiko


 Watch the scene as you enter and you'll have a ton of new Moogle friends. Yay!
Love Moogles. When you regain control...

   <ATE> Vivi's Feelings [Vivi]

 Afterwards, examine the fountain to find the Stellazzio 'Libra'. Now go N to
the next area...

   <ATE> Dagger's Feelings [Dagger]

 Speak to Moco the Moogle to trigger a little scene with Quina. Return to the
previous area...

   <ATE> Eiko's Feelings [Eiko and Moogles]. During this ATE, pick Momatose to
   go fishing, pick Mocha to dig up the potatoes and have Chimomo help in the
   kitchen.

 Now, open the chest behind where Dagger was sitting to find 'Tent'. Now go
left to the next area. A little scene with Vivi triggers here. Now try going
inside the house and Morrison will take you to the Eidolon Wall. Return to the
previous area...

   <ATE> Eiko's Kitchen [Eiko]. Put water in for 11 people, don't put in the
   Oglop, and when prompted, lend Momatose a hand... lol. Nice catch Momatose.

 Now go S to the entrance and speak to Dagger. She'll join you. Now go N to
where Quina jumped into the water and speak to Morrison. Watch the little scene
inside the wall and then leave...

   <ATE> Eiko's Kitchen 2 [Eiko]. Have Quina help in this one.

 Now go to Vivi and enter the house. Watch the scene where everybody eats. When
you regain control, open the chest to find 'Ore'. Open the chest behind this
one to find 'Phoenix Pinion'. Now pick up the pot and take it to Eiko. After
the little talk, check the left side near the table to find 'Kirman Coffee'.

 Speak to Eiko once again and then leave, sleeping first. Watch the scene as
you sleep and afterwards, Eiko officially joinst the party. Nice. If you go
back inside Madain Sari, Morrison has set up a shop. He sells the same things,
which you won't need any... well, probably just buy a couple Magic Tags, just
in case.

 At the World Map, go back inside the Mountain Path and move to the area where
you fought the Hilgigars. Go NW this time to reach the World Map. You're in the
Pualei Plains now. You'll find the Friendly Creature Nymph here. Give her 3
pieces of Ore to receive 30 AP and an Emerald.

 Nice. Have Eiko learn Haste from the Emerald ASAP. Now go W and enter...

"So this place really must be the source of the Mist." -- Zidane


 Watch the scene as you enter. You'll receive 'Ruby' during it.

   <vin> Just as a side note, the enemies here are tough, but you can overcome
   them pretty easy. The Stropers die if you toss a Soft at them. The Zombies
   and Dracozombies are Undead, meaning healing items and spells hurt them. You
   can either toss a Phoenix Down/Pinion or cast Life on them for an instant
   kill. Simple and effective.

o-------------.------------o  Now go inside the Iifa Tree and walk through the
|    Enemy    | Blue Magic |  branch areas (4 areas total). When you finally
|-------------|------------|  get to the Iifa Tree, speak to Mocchi and give
| Dracozombie | Lv.5 Death |  him Mogryo's letter. Use a Tent, save your game
|   Stroper   | Lv.5 Death |  and proceed N to the next area.
|    Zombie   |  Roulette  |
o-------------'------------o   A scene triggers here and you'll descend deeper
                              into the Iifa Tree. Cross this first area and in
the second one, go right at the second fork and push the thing that's sticking
out. You'll drop a chest with 'Phoenix Down'. Now go S at the next fork to find
a chest with 'Hi-Potion'. Proceed now to the next area.

 Stick to your left side as you descend and you'll find something sticking out
(marked with an "!" of course). Push it to activate something. Return to the
previous area and you'll find a new chest near the top with 'Healing Rod'.
Return to the next area and now keep your eyes on the right side to find a hole
with 'Ether' inside. Now when you get to a fork, go left and open the chest to
find 'Lamia's Flute'.

 Now examine the blue thing left of the chest to reveal it's a chest with
'Remedy'. Now go S to the next area. A scene triggers here. You'll now be in a
chain of fights of Zombies and Dracozombie. Speak to Vivi when prompted to have
the scene continue. At the bottom, go down the stairs and open the hidden chest
at the bottom to find 'Elixir'.

 Now go to the left side and open the chest behind the wall to find a hidden
'Brigandine'. Equip it on Zidane ASAP and equip Body Temp on everybody. Now
examine the left side of the area to trigger a scene and a...

 |   Strategy:  Ok,  the Soulcage is  very easy,  although there  are  some  |
 |  things  you should be  aware of.  He's Undead,  meaning  he's  weak  to  |
 |  healing magic...  and to Phoenix Downs  and Life.  You may want to just  |
 |  toss one and end this fight. Do so if you want to.  Otherwise, here are  |
 |  his attacks:  Lv.5  Death.  You know what this does.  Leaf Swirl  deals  |
 |  around 150 dmg. to all characters.                                       |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Shockwave deals around  200 dmg.  to all characters.  If you deal Fire  |
 |  dmg. on Soulcage, he'll set ablaze and  use Fire Blades,  which is Leaf  |
 |  Swirl with Fire-imbued dmg. to deal over 350 dmg.  He also uses Mustard  |
 |  Bomb,  which inflicts  Heat on a character.  Whoever  acts  while being  |
 |  "Heated" will die. That's why I told you to equip Body Temp.             |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Have Vivi cast Slow  on Soulcage and  afterwards,  start spamming Bio,  |

 Watch the scene as you enter and follow Eiko into the kitchen. Go inside the
room where all the Moogles are gathered to have the scene continue. Once you
regain control, open the mini chests to find 'Phoenix Down' and 'Survival
Vest'. Now head over to the Eidolon's Wall and speak to Morrison...

   <vin> I laughed so hard when I saw the Moogle over the arc running in
   circles. Who's that? Mocha?! Lovely.

 |  have to buy 'em.  If you don't wanna bother, well,  just attack him. He  |
 |  likes to jump around a lot, just attack him after he jumps,  otherwise,  |
 |  you might miss.  He only  has 1 attack,  which is a normal physical one  |
 |  which deals  around 170 dmg.  Not much.  Use a Hi-Potion if you need to  |

stolen from to trigger a scene. You'll receive 'Memory Earring' during the
scene. Now move outside the dinning room and listen to the song when the "!"
appears. A scene triggers here. I love this one =3.

 Anyway, at the end of the scene, Eiko joins the party for good... as well as
Scarlet. His name is Amarant. You know the drill. He'll be named that way for
the rest of the game/guide. You can now pick who stays behind. I picked to
leave Garnet out for the rest of the Disc. I could have leave Eiko out too, but
she had some abilities to learn.

 Anyway, return to...

 Ok, last area of the disc. Watch the scene as you enter. Now move inside the
Iifa Tree and run along the branches until a scene triggers. You'll now have to
fight 2 Mistodon. Easy. Fire them up. Keep watching the scenes. Now you have to
follow Dagger while fighting Mistodons. When you regain control though, move N
to find Mocchi hiding.

 Read Stiltzkin's letter and follow Dagger now. Fight the Mistodons while
running downwards to have the scenes continue, as well as some FMVs. You'll
obtain 'Aquamarine' and the Disc will end shortly afterwards.

"(M-My nose is bleeding...)" -- Marcus
                           "(Then stick your thumb up it!)" -- Blank


 Remember this place? Ya, we're back, finally. Watch the scenes with Dagger,
Beatrix and Steiner... then we're back with Tantalus. Once you're in control of
Vivi, go E to the next area...

   <ATE> It's So Big! [Eiko]

 Speak to Hippaul at the S side of the alley to play his racing minigame. Check
the minigame section for more info. Now go W past the bar...

   <ATE> Long Time No See! [Zenero, Benero and Genero]

 Buy any items if you need to and go W to the plaza...

   <ATE> To Fly High [Blank and Marcus]
         Artemicion [Moogles]

 Now go E and enter the Synthesis Shop. There are a few things new here, like
Zidane's new weapon Angel Bless, the Anklet and the Feather Boots. You should
have already the Black Belt, the Reflect Ring and the Pearl Rouge. At the
Weapon Shop next to it, buy: Ice Lance [Freya], 6 Twist Headband [Vivi, Dagger,
Eiko, Quina, Zidane, Amarant], Gold Helm [Freya/Steiner] and 2 Plate Mail
[Steiner and Freya].

 Go N to the castle docks, check under the soldier's stands to find 'Phoenix
Pinion' and '3,927 Gil'. Return and now go all the way to the W side and speak
to the Moogles. Give Kupo the letter from Kuppo, which we've been carrying for
the whole disc 2. You'll also read a letter from Mogrika. Speak to Stiltzkin
and but Phoenix Pinion, Hi-Potion and Elixir for 777 Gil. That's cheap. Go up
the ladder and pull the rope at the top.

 A little chest comes down that has 'Ironite Card', 'Fang Card', 'Shiva Card',
'Ramuh Card' and 'Goblin Card'. Return and speak to Blank and Marcus. Go down
the staircase behind them and a scene triggers. During it, you'll receive
'Opal', 'Topaz' and 'Amethyst'. Keep on watching the scenes. Now that we
control Eiko, go N to trigger a scene with Baku.

 This is where the Steiner/Beatrix scenes will start on. Lovely =3. Anyway,
once we're Zidane, leave the bar...

   <ATE> I Forgot! [Baku]

 ... and head over to Ruby's mini theater. Check the S side inside to find
'2,680 Gil'. Leave and head over to the weapon shop. The -enero brothers will
play a game with you for 50 Gil. Check out the minigame section for more info.
Now go to the castle docks and a scene with Freya and Amarant triggers.  Now
use the gondola to go to the castle.

 Here, before going up the stairs on the sides, check the left and right sides
(behind the pillars) to find 'Ether' and 'Phoenix Pinion'. Now check behind the
fountain in the center to find 'Lapis Lazuli'. Now equip Freya and Amarant with
their latest armor/weapons and go W. Remember this tower from the beginning of
the game? Well, it's closed now but get the hidden 'Phoenix Pinion' from the
upper right corner.

 Now enter the harbor on the left and without leaving this room, check the NE
corner to find the Stellazzio 'Leo'. Now enter the castle to trigger a scene
with Steiner and Eiko. Aw, poor Zidane...

   <vin> If you haven't noticed yet, Zidane is the best FF character.

 Now watch one of the funniest scenes of the game with Eiko, Steiner, Beatrix,
Marcus and Blank. You'll now be headed to...

   <ATE> Clowns on a Dark Night [Zorn and Thorn]

 Watch the scene that continues from Alexandria and when you regain control...

   <ATE> Eiko Talks Life [Eiko and Vivi]

 Leave Tot's room...

   <ATE> How He Ended Up Here [Vivi]

   <vin> You get 2 picks during the ATE. If you pick to go to Vivi's home,
   which we've been there already, a scene with Zidane triggerslater. If you
   stay in Treno, you'll be able to get a Namingway Card. It allows you to
   rename a character. The choice is yours.

 Now leave the tower...

   <ATE> Memories By The Water [Amarant]. Make sure to watch this one.

 ... and head over to the entrance of Treno. From here, go right and then N to
reach the area outside the weapon shop. Speak to Mogrich and pick Mognet. He'll
get a letter from Artemicion. Save your game and enter the Weapon Shop. Buy a
Lamia's Tiara for Freya if you haven't already and fight the new enemy, the
Catoblepas.

 Make sure to equip Jelly before coming (Beast Killer is nice too), as well as
your Angel Bless and a Coral Ring. At the beginning of the fight, use Soul
Blade to cause Confuse on the enemy and start hacking away. You'll kill it in
like 3-4 hits. You'll receive '15,000 Gil' afterwards. Now go to the Auction
House.

 You can buy the Key Item Rat's Tail. Buy it, as well as a Dark Matter...

   <vin> This item teaches Dagger Odin, another Summon. Pretty sweet.

 Don't bother with the other items since you can make them at the Synth shop or
you can buy them. Now return to the previous area and go S to the next area...

   <ATE> City People (only after watching Memories by the Water)[Eiko and
   Quina]. You'll receive 'Chimera Armlet' at the end of the ATE.

 This is the Card Stadium where the tournament is being held. Before anything
though, go W and here, speak to the Adventurer to the N to sell him the Rat
Tail, if you bought it. You can sell it for up to 25,000 Gil. Now go N and
enter the Stellazzio building. In here, give up the Stellazzios:

 6 :: Elixir
 7 :: 10,000 Gil
 8 :: Black Belt

 Only 4 more to go. Now leave Treno.

 Out here, go to Quan's Dwelling and move to the last area to find Vivi (if you
chose to return here in the ATE). Watch the scene here. This is how Vivi and
Quan met. Well, leave the place and head over ALL the way to Dali. Once here,
enter the mayor's house (NW corner of the first area).

 Remember this mill? Enter the S room to find the Mayor's House. Check the
place in the following order: Desk and you'll get 'Mini-Brahne'. When you're
kicked out, check the Desk again 3 times and when the kid's finally fallen
asleep, check the Heater and you'll obtain 'Mayor's Key'. Return to the mill
and open the NE door.

 Out here, check the NE corner under the leaves to find '30,000 Gil'. Now check
under the chest to find a hidden 'Burman Coffee'. Return insdide and the mill
will have stopped. Open the chests to find 'Elixir' and 'Cachusha'. Now leave
Dali and go to the Observatory Mountain. Speak to Morrid and give him the 3
Coffee Beans you've found.

 He'll hand over a model of the Theater Ship. He'll send it over to the
Tantalus' Hideout. Nice. We've done everything we need/can do up to this point,
so return to Treno and head over to the Card Stadium.

 Round 1: Attic Man Wake

   <ATE> Good Old Days [Amarant and Freya]

 After watching the ATE, save your game...

   <ATE> Lessons of Life (only after watching Good Old Days)[Amarant and Freya]

 ... and return to the Card Stadium...

 Round 2: Cardona Bishop / Mario of the Slums (this will be the opponent if you
                                               had Vivi stay in the ATE instead
                                               of leaving to his home)

   <ATE> Hallucination [Quina]... LOL
         Premonition [Eiko and Tot]

 Save once again as you're told to and enter the stadium to trigger a scene.
Remember Erin from Disc 1?

 Round Finale: Sailor Erin

 Make sure to win this round since you only have 1 shot. If you win, you'll
receive a 'Rebirth Ring'. Now watch the scenes with Cid and Kuja. Oh my, damn
you Kuja. Now you'll be at...

"Alexander's judgment has come!" -- Eiko


 We need to mobilize the troops, the Pluto Knights:

 [_] Gather information                         :: Blutzen and Kohel
 [_] Protet the townspeople                     :: Weimar and Haagen
 [_] Contact Lindblum to request reinforcements :: Breireicht and Laudo
 [_] Begin preparations to fire the cannons     :: Dojebon and Mullenkedheim

 If done correctly, you'll receive 'Angel Earrings'. Possible items to gain are
also 'Elixir' and 'Hi-Potion'... or nothing at all. Now what happened to
Dagger? Anyway, we'll now be in charge of Steiner and Beatrix. Nice. Kill the
Mistodon near the booth and go S and another Mistodon will appear. Go S once
more and another Mistodon will appear (2 this time).

 Go E and more Mistodons appear. There will be several waves of attack here, so
take them all out. After taking them all out, you'll be in control of Dagger.
Go up towards the Queen's chamber and before entering it, enter the left room.
Go to the top of the tower and an FMV triggers. Follow the path until some
scenes and FMVs trigger.

 Oh my, I wonder who's that guy dressed in black armor. After the scenes,
you'll be in control of Zidane and company. Go up the stairs and enter the room
where you got dressed as Pluto Knights at the beginning of the game. Speak to
Mosh and save your game. Now return to where you gained control as Zidane. Here
go W to enter the library.

 Remember the voice that spoke to you in disc 2 when we came to rescue Dagger?
Well, it's still here and it's the last time you have. Make preparations (read
the strategy below) and start the...

 |   Strategy: Ok,  Tantarian is  a weird  and unique  monster in the game.  |
 |  This boss is an enemy that hides inside a book and has few attacks.  He  |
 |  has Edge that deals around 500 dmg. to one character. Paper Storm deals  |
 |  around  350 dmg.  to the  whole  party.  Poison inflicts  Poison to one  |
 |  character and Doom, inflicts Death Sentence to one character.            |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Make sure to equip everybody with Antibody.  What we  need to do is to  |
 |  find  Tantarian  inside  the  book.  How to  do so? Well,  you  have to  |
 |  physically attack him once and the book will change page.  When it gets  |
 |  to  the pages  145-200,  you'll find him.  At this point, make sure you  |
 |  only use Bio to deal over 1,500 dmg.                                     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   When he's revealed, Tantarian will only use Poison, which Poisons you.  |
 |  If you  got Antibody on,  this will be useless. Make sure Zidane steals  |
 |  over and over until you got  the Demon's Mail,  which is the only thing  |
 |  worth stealing at the moment. Have Freya use Reis's Wind and Hi-Potions, |
 |  Amarant should stick to Chakra and Vivi should stick to Bio.             |
 |                                                                           |
 |   When he hides,  try finding him ASAP.  Once you do,  you  can continue  |
 |  stealing his goods.  Make good use  of Hi-Potions  and Reis's Wind. The  |
 |  only hard thing about this fight is Paper Storm.                         |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 Equip those Running Shoes ASAP and quickly learn Auto-Haste. Return to Mosh
and save your game. Now follow the path you followed as Dagger and watch the
scenes and FMVs that trigger. During the scenes, you'll end up at...

"Who's this? Your new girlfriend? (Quina) Heh-heh-heh." -- Blank


 As you regain control, open the chest on the right to find 'Egoist's Armlet'.
Now open the chest near the moogle to find 'Elixir'. Speak to Mogki the Moogle
and receive his letter to Moodon. Now save your game and try leaving the room
to trigger a scene with Blank...

   <ATE> Something Washed Ashore [Quina]

 Now go to the telescope (to the Upper Level) and a scene triggers as you
approach Dagger...

   <ATE> My Bad [Blank]

 Now return to where Blank is in the previous ATE and a scene triggers. Now go
N and enter the Upper Room to have the scene continue...

   <ATE> Self-reproach [Dagger]
         Deep Anger [Kuja]

 Afterwards, head to the Guest Room (where Zidane woke up). After the scenes,
we need to find 3 Potions: Unusual Potion, Beautiful Potion and Strange
Potion...

   <ATE> My Hammer [Cinna and Marcus]

 Now head over to the Business District. Enter the Inn and speak to Moodon the
Moogle. Give him Mogki's letter, leave the Inn and go N to the next area. Check
the W side to find a hidden Stellazzio 'Sagittarius'. Now enter the lone house
on the N side of this area to find 2 chests inside with 'Elixir' and 'Remedy'.
Now go to the NE area and speak to Alice, owner of the item shop.

 She'll hand over 'Beautiful Potion'. Since we're around, go to Dragoos' shop
and buy: 1 Magic Racket [Eiko/Dagger], Cypress Pile [Vivi], 4 Chimaera Armlet
[Vivi, Dagger, Eiko and Amarant], 5 Mantra Bands [Zidane, Vivi, Dagger, Eiko
and Amarant] and 1 Dark Hat [for the sake of having it]. There's nothing new at
the Synth Shop, so leave the District and head over to the Theater District.

 A scene triggers as you exit the station...

   <ATE> The Rally [Freya and Burmecian Soldiers]

 After the scene, enter the SE artist's house. Open the chest to find 'Lapis
Lazuli' and speak to the artist Michael. He tells you if you find it, keep it.
Examine the W corner to find the 'Strange Potion'. Now head over to Tantalus
and a scene triggers. During it, you'll obtain 'Unusual Potion'. Return and
enter Tantalus' Hideout.

 Open the chests to find '4,826 Gil', '1,273 Gil' and '970 Gil'. Now return to
the Throne Room to trigger a scene...

   <ATE> No Free Lunch [Quina]

 Leave and head to the Base Level. Go to the Dragon's Gate and open the hidden
chest behind the stairs to find 'Remedy'. Now go to the Serpent's Gate and open
the hidden N chest to find 'Chimaera Armlet'. Now go S to the port and board
the Blue Narciss...

   <vin> This part between Cid and Quina is hilarious. Remember Quina loves
   frogs? LOL

 Anyway, you can speak to Cid to change party members. Make any party you want.
There are tons of things to do at the moment. I'll only put in a few and/or the
most important ones. I chose to bring Steiner, Freya and Quina with me. Just to
level 'em up and have 'em learn some new skills.

 First and most important, head over to the Chocobo's Forest. Note that after
these lines, everything is optional. It's quite long and takes a lot of time,
so skip it you so do desire. If you do so, make sure to skip to the Black Mage
Village.

 In here, a scene triggers where Mene tells you he found a new place to dig
Chocographs, which is inside a cave on the SE corner of the W continent. Right
now, you should have the following list of Chocographs (I'll list how to get
the ones you couldn't get before but now are available):

 [_] Streamside
 [_] Between Mountains
 [_] Uncultivated Land [Antidote x10, Jade Armlet x1, Wing Edge x3,
                        Cargo Ship Card x1]

 Once you got the Mountain ability from the Dawn Lagoon Chocograph (read below
the ---- line), move to the entrance to the Evil Forest, climb around
Alexandria and once on the right side of the Evil Forest, you'll see some dried
up land next to the river. Dig here to find.

 While you're here, enter South Gate S of the chest's location to find 3
chests, with '3,206 Gil', 'Elixir' and 'Elixir'. You'll also find Mosco the
Moogle here.

 [_] Healing Shore
 [_] Abandoned Beach
 [_] Cold Field [Echo Screen x5, Hi-Potion x7, Tent x3, Theater Ship Card x1]

 Land on the SE corner of the NW continent (the one with snow) and move W a
little bit to find the Chocobo's footprints. A little bit E of the footprints,
near the beach is located the chest.

 [_] Faraway Lagoon [Potion x37, Magic Tag x6, Shield Armor x1, Gaia Gear x1]

 After the Chocobo's Lagoon (read below the ---- line), go NW of the Chocobo's
Lagoon to find a Qu's Marsh. NW of this Qu's Marsh is a long island with
beaches on both sides. This one has some Chocobo's footprints. Call Choco and
go N. From here, go around the "n" shaped area until you're NE of your ship.
Start digging around until you find it. Equip the Gaia Gear and the Shield
Armor ASAP.

 [_] Bird's-Eye Lagoon
 [_] Small Beach
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Well, once you got all these and the Chocograph Pieces, Mene tells you Choco
can no longer feel any Chocographs here so it's time to go to the next digging
site. Move to the S side of the map and check the long and thin isle on the S
side of the W continent. You'll find a beach and a little cave with water. This
is the place. Watch out for the Grand Dragons though. They can kill you with a
single Thundaga.

 This is the Palmnell Island. NW of this island is the Salvage Archipelago. Get
off here, call Choco and follow the Reef to enter Chocobo's Lagoon. We only get
half of the land to dig and half the time. Make sure to dig up these
Chocographs:

 [_] Dawn Lagoon
 [_] Dusk Plains
 [_] Forgotten Lagoon
 [_] Abandoned Lagoon

 Once you find these 4, time to go look for 'em, since there's no more
Chocographs until you find the Mountain Ability...

 [_] Dawn Lagoon [Mountain Ability]

 Head over to the Chocobo's Forest and call Choco outside. From here, go all
the way E and enter the reef from the E most beach. You'll see a small patch of
land here. Dig on the right side of it to find the chest.

 [_] Forgotten Lagoon [Gysahl Greens x8, Ether x5, Hi-Potion x7, Dragon's
                       Claws]

 At the Lost Continent (icy one), call Choco and go S across the reef until you
get to the Abandoned Continent. Go E and around the "L" shaped piece of land to
find the chest hidding in the corner.

 [_] Abandoned Lagoon [Soft x6, Ether x4, Feather Boots x1, N-Kai Armlet x1]

 Move to the S side of the Outer Continent, disembark on the beach (not the one
near Qu's Marsh) and grab Choco from the footprints. Now go W across the reef
until you find it. Simple.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Time to go find some new armor/weapons. On the Lost Continent, the icy one,
enter the only building here, Esto Gaza. You'll be coming here later, but why
not right now? Enter the building and go E to the next area. In here, buy:
Mythril Claws [Amarant], Mythril Sword [Steiner]...

   <vin> This is the last time for Steiner to learn Armor Break. The sword
   won't be buyable later in the game. Better get one.

 ... and Mythril Racket [Dagger/Eiko]. Now move to Gizamaluke's Grotto and give
Moguta the Kupo Nut you're carrying to get 'Extension'. Since we're here, head
over to Chocobo's Forest, where we can dig up 4 more Chocographs.

 [_] Forbidden Forest
 [_] Green Plains
 [_] Cold Lagoon
 [_] Forgotten Plains

 Time to go catch 'em all (alla Pokémon):

 [_] Forbidden Forest [Ether x7, Elixir x2, Wing Edge x10, High Mage Staff]

 This one is simple. In middle of the Mist Continent, the 3 mountain ranges
meet (the ones that separate Alexandria, Lindblum and Burmecia). It's N with a
little W of Chocobo's Forest.

 [_] Green Plains [Ocean Ability]

 Another simple one. Move directly N of Chocobo's Forest until you reach the N
mountain range that overlooks the ocean.

 [_] Cold Lagoon [Peridot x11, Opal x9, Sapphire x15, Topaz x19]

 Move to the Lost Continent (icy one) and call Choco. Follow the water to the N
side of the continent and you'll find the shape of the image. Dig here.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Well, now that we got the Ocean ability, head over to Chocobo's Lagoon and
it's time to dig 3 more Chocographs:

 [_] Sea at Dusk
 [_] Ocean
 [_] Outer Island 2

 That's it for the Lagoon and Chocographs. Haha, here are the locations:

 [_] Sea at Dusk [Phoenix Pinion x15, White Robe, Diamond, Masamune Card]

 This one, although it's very easy to find, the image and the explanation from
Mene is very confusing. The easy way to find it. Open up your map (press
select) and locate the North Gate (near Burmecia). From here, move all the way
W and where the pointer meets the E side of the Forgotten Continent, that's
where the chest is... well, somewhere around here.

 [_] Ocean [Ore x27, Light Robe, Whale Whisker, Alexander Card]

 Oh my, this one's hard to explain. Remember the island NW of the Qu's Marsh
near Chocobo's Lagoon? The one with the Chocobo's footprints and has beaches on
both sides? Well, go to that island and dig the upper left side of this island
(in the open sea) to find the chest.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 That's it for the Chocographs. You're near done here. Told ya it was gonna be
quite extensive. I've spent a little over 5 hours writing this section. You
must've realized by now that Choco can use the Dead Peppers. These excavate
chests when in the sea or can break mountains when on ground. There are some
locations for you to dig with these, which are few. Let's get started.

 [_] On the S side of the Forgotten Continent (W continent), there's a small
     inlet with bubbles coming out. It's next to a forest. Use a dead pepper to
     find: Remedy x10, Black Robe, Genji Gloves, Blue Narciss Card.

 [_] Move to the N side of the map and you'll see the Lost Continent (icy one)
     makes an arch with an island of the Outer Continent (thanks to my buddy
     Shotgunnova for this explanation), almost directly N of the Mountain Pass
     W. In between these, you'll find more bubbles with: Potion x50,
     Hi-Potion x25, Ether x9, Elixir x7.

 [_] On the SE side of the Outer Continent, you'll see that it has the form of
     a crab's claw. On the tip of the left part are the bubbles with (almost
     directly N of Alexandria): Straw Hat x8, Pearl Armlet x8,
     Aloha T-shirt x8, Sandals x8.

 [_] The last one. Move to Quan's Dwelling. Enter the place and move to the
     last area. Examine the edge of the bridge and agree to use the Dead
     Pepper. You'll be at the World Map, so use one to find: Ore x9, Topaz x15,
     Tiger Racket, Red Rose Card...

   <vin> We've got Daggers and Eiko's Ultimate Racket Weapon, the Tiger Racket.
   Make sure they learn the Abilities.

 Since we're around Treno, go there and on to the Auction House. There are 2
new items we're looking for, the Accessory Promist Ring [Restore HP (S), Absorb
MP (S) and Mag Elem Null (S)] and the Thief Gloves [Master Thief (S)]. Very
nice. You'll be spending over 50,000 Gil for these 2.

 Now, you wanna get some Blue Magic for Quina? I'll put down the chart and the
locations and it'll be up to you whether you get 'em or not.

o--------------.-------------.------------------o
|     Enemy    | Blue  Magic |     Location     |  * The island on the SW side
|--------------|-------------|------------------|    of the W continent. Where
|  Adamantoise | Earth Shake |   Lanar Island*  |    the Qu's Marsh is.
|    Anemone   | Bad  Breath |   Lanar Island*  |
|    Zombie    |   Roulette  |    Iifa  Tree    | ** The beach on the SE corner
| Zombie Whale | Lv.5  Death | Falstead Coast** |    of the Outer Continent.
o--------------'-------------'------------------o

 This is all there is to do right now. It was pretty lengthy, so I hope you
covered everything. We got some good equipment, so make sure to start learning
some new Skills and Abilities.

    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 Watch the scene as you enter. Follow Vivi to the W part of the village to
trigger a scene with Mr. 288. After Vivi runs off, head to the shack on the E
side. The Chocobo has finally hatched. It's very pretty =3. You'll also learn
where Kuja's palace is. After some more scene with Dagger and Eiko, leave the
village.

 At the World Map, get on your Ocean Chocobo or board the Blue Narciss and head
over to the E side of the Outer Continent. From the beach with the Zombie
Whale, go NW and you'll be in a desert with 4 sandpits. 3 of them are spitting
sand upwards. This means there's an Antlion there. Enter the NW sandpit to find
Kuja's hideout, the Desert Palace.

 When you regain control, go S and the scene continues. At the scene with Kuja,
we're off to Oeilvert with 3 more. Choose carefully who you wanna take with
you. I chose the following:

    :: Oeilvert
 [_] Zidane - He has to go.
 [_] Dagger - She's useless in combat at the moment, since she can't focus in
              some turns. Besides, you can't use magic.
 [_] Vivi - Vivi is like meh, pretty much useless here, besides being the
            character that'll be using Items. You can also have him learn all
            the Skills and Abilities you can here.
 [_] Freya - We need some kind of healing in this place and since there's no
             magic, we'll have to do with Reis's Wind.

    :: Palace (Stays)
 [_] Eiko - The Palace is way harder than Oeilvert. Having someone who can cure
            without the possibilities of not focusing is mandatory here.
 [_] Amarant - He can keep Eiko and Quina's MP up with Chakra. This will let
               you save a lot of Ethers.
 [_] Steiner - We need some physical muscle in the party. He's the strongest
               physical attacker, and he's probably the only physical attacker
               we'll have here.
 [_] Quina - Quina's job is to use Lv.5 Death against the enemies here.

 This is my setup. You can probably exchange Freya with Steiner, but we already
have Zidane going to Oeilvert. Besides, Freya isn't that weak. When you regain
control, run around the place, over the stairs and go W. Board the Hilda Garde
1 and you'll leave to the Forgotten Continent.

o------------.---------------.----------------------o
|    Enemy   |  Blue  Magic  |       Location       |  * Area around Hilda
|------------|---------------|----------------------|    Garde 1.
| Catoblepas |  Limit Glove  | Blairsurpass Plains* |
| Jabberwock |  Limit Glove  | Blairsurpass Plains* | ** Area before Oeilvert.
|   Cactuar  | 1,000 Needles |   Seaways Canyon**   |
o------------'---------------'----------------------o

 There are some things to do before going to Oeilvert. We'll land at the
Blairsurpass Plains. If you brought Quina, you'll find the fourth and last Qu's
Marsh to the N, so go there and catch some frogs. If you didn't bring her, go
NW of the Marsh and you'll find Chocobo's footprints in between the forests.

 Call Choco and go W. You'll find a building on a canyon. This is Ipsen's
castle and we'll be coming here soon enough.

 [_] Forgotten Plains [Ore x17, Ether x5, Opal x14, Demon's Mail]

 From Ipsen's Castle, go a little W and you'll see the patch of grass just like
the one in the image. Dig over the mountain to find the chest.

 Equip it on Freya/Steiner ASAP. Now, from the Hilda Garde 1, go S and open
your map. Locate the yellow dot to the S to find Oeilvert. Follow the orange-
yellowish path to find it. This colored path is called Seaways Canyon. Get in a
forested area to find the Friendly Creature Yabberwock. Give him an Emerald to
receive 40 AP and a Moonstone. Nice! Now, if you got Choco, you'll get to
Oeilvert in no time. Before entering though...

 [_] Dusk Plains [Phoenix Down x12, Ore x14, Kaiser Knuckles, Iron Man Card]

 From Oeilvert, go SW to find the small patch of forest near the sea. Really
easy to find.

 Return to Oeilvert and from here, let's go do 2 more things. Go NW from here
and you'll find a forest circled by mountains. Go here and once in the center
of the forest, look SE to see a crack in the mountain. Use a Dead Pepper to
find: Maiden Prayer, Dragon's Hair, Gauntlets and Odin Card...

   <vin> Dragon's Hair is Freya's ultimate weapon. Her best of the best. Equip
   it ASAP. It'll come in very handy in Oeilvert.

 From this crack, go W and at the E side, you'll have a little "y" shaped
forest and some Chocobo's footprints. Go a little bit N over the mountain to
find a little forest. N of this forest is another crack (on the left) with: Eye
Drops x19, Madain's Ring, Genji Helmet and Hilda Garde 1 Card. Once you got
this, return and enter...

 The enemy in here, Epitaph, creates a copy of one of your characters. If that
character is in your party, the copy will kill this character. DO NOT REVIVE
HIM/HER. Instead, kill the copy and hit the Epitaph with someone weak. This
will create another copy. Each Epitaph creates 3 copies max. IF you kill the 3
copies and the Epitaph itself, you'll receive 7,434 XP all 4 characters.

 Make sure to revive your KO character after you kill the 3rd copy.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 As you enter, speak to Mimoza and choose Mognet. She has a letter for Mooel.
Grab it and check out the Mogshop. Buy: Diamond Sword [Steiner], Trident
[Freya] (only for the Ability Luna), Fairy Flute [Eiko], Silver Fork [Quina]
(if you haven't obtained it yet from catching frogs), Egoist's Armlets for
whoever need 'em (we got a few better, remember?), 6 Green Berets [Zidane,
Vivi, Dagger, Quina, Eiko and Amarant], 2 Cross Helm [Steiner and Freya], a
Judo Uniform for whoever needs it as well, Gold Armor [Steiner/Freya].

 Nice, many new good things to buy. Now go inside Oeilvert and in here, open
the chest in front of you (under the stairs) to find 'Remedy'. Now go up the
stairs to find another chest with 'Rising Sun'. Now go W from this chest to the
next area. Open the chest to find 'Elixir'. Now examine the lightbulb-thing to
turn it red.

 Return to the entrance and go E to the next area. You'll find Stiltzkin here,
who sells Hi-Potion, Emerald and Elixir for 888 Gil. Buy 'em. Now speak to
Mooel the Moogle and give him Mimoza's letter. You'll receive 'Kupo Nut' for
giving him the letter. Now check the right side of the room to find a chest
with 'Gaia Gear'.

 Return to the previous area and go W to the next area. You'll find 2 chests
here, with 'Diamond Sword' and 'Shield Armor'. Watch the little scene with the
hologram in the center of the room. Go S now to the next area. Open the chest
to the S to find 'Power Vest'. Now go up the stairs and open the chest on the
right to find 'Feather Boots'.

 Now examine the 2 beams of light up here (left one first), then the 2 at the
bottom (right one first). Return up the stairs and go W to the next area. Cross
the bridge and examine the crystal orb when you get to it. After the little
scene, go W and you'll return to the room with the planet hologram. Go N inside
the blue door and the scene continues.

 Once it's over, return to the room with Mooel the Moogle, use a Tent, save
your game and proceed E. Another scene triggers. Now go E to the next area...

   <vin> Make sure to equip Clear Headed Ability on your characters, Auto-
   Potion and if you can, Auto-Haste/Auto-Regen. If you have Chemist, equip it
   as well. Don't forget to equip some wind-proof armor.

 Now go down, examine the object to trigger a scene and a...

 |  around 300 dmg.  to all characters.  Propeller Wind inflicts confuse to  |
 |  all characters (hence the reason you put on Clear Headed). Photon drops  |
 |  your HP all the way to 1. Whirlwind deals around 250 dmg.  and inflicts  |
 |  Float.                                                                   |

 |   These are  all its attacks.  As a matter of fact,  the Ark is a really  |
 |  pushover. Have the characters with Chemist be the healers,  tossing Hi-  |
 |  Potions as needed.  Have Zidane  steal that  Holy Lance  and Elixir and  |
 |  have him attack afterwards.  Have your  other physical  attacker attack  |
 |  over and over (Freya or Steiner).  Freya,  if she has her Dragon's Hair  |
 |  equipped, she'll be doing over 3,000 dmg.                                |

 |   Otherwise,  use Reis's Wind to stay healthy and  attack over and over.  |
 |  You'll be doing over 4,000 dmg. per turn, so only 5 turns  and it'll be  |

"You bastard! You're the worst scum alive!" -- Zidane


 Watch the scene with that bastard Kuja! Once you're in control of Cid, go S
and E into the door. You now have to get the key that's next to the monster. To
do that, press O as fast as you can while the monster is facing against you.
Before it turns around, stop pressing the button so that it doesn't catch you
moving.

 If you're catched, you'll have to start from the entrance. You have 6 minutes,
so take your time until you get 'Hourglass Key'. Now, when it's time to put on
the weights on the scales, put on the A, B and D (last one) to climb the scales
and open up the doors.

 Now you'll have your party complete. Now equip your characters with their best
weapons/armor, go E where you went with Cid and you'll find Mojito the
Moogle...

   <vin> What kind of name is that? This is an alcoholic Moogle, haha.

 Pick Mognet and pick up his letter for Mogsam. Save your game, return to the
previous room and go W...

   <vin> Remember that the levels of ALL enemies here in the Desert Palace are
   divisible by 5, so using Lv.5 Death will kill every enemy in the area.
   That's why we put the combo Quina/Amarant. Many kills with Quina and Amarant
   supports her with Chakra.

 Go up the stairs here and after the Desert Palace title appears, light the
candle on the left side. A pink orb starts glowing (called Bloodstone). Examine
it to find 'Promist Ring'. Now go N to the next area.

 Here, go right and a statue will move its head. When done, a blueish stair
appears. If it doesn't, run left so the left statue moves its head. When the
eyes of the central statue glow red, it'll appear. Follow it to the next area,
where another Candle is. Light it and return to the previous room. Grab 'Fairy
Earrings' from the right side of the area and go W to the next area.

 Go up the stairs and you'll have 3 golden goblets. Fire them up, follow the
path N and when you're on the E side of the room, there are 3 more goblets.
Fire up the bottom left one and the statues on the left side disappear. Return
to this side and now there are 2 more golden goblets in the center. Fire 'em up
to remove the statues in the center of the room. Now fire up the goblets on the
right side and the bottom middle one to activate the Bloodstone with 'Anklet'.
Now go E to the next area.

 In this corridor, lit up the candle (from underneath the statue) to activate
the Bloodstone with 'Shield Armor'. Now go up the stairs at the end and in this
next area, light the Candle right next to you and continue on to the next area.
You're now in some sort of library. Light the left most Candle and go up the
stairs that appear on the right.

 Light up the Candle up here and the shelf will go up. Enter the room behind to
find a Bloodstone with 'N-Kai Armlet'. Return to the bottom of the library, go
up the stairs on the left side and light up the Candle up here. Follow the path
behind the shelf and light up the 2 Candles you come across with. Now return to
the library.

 Light up the last Candle and follow the path behind the shelf. Light up the
Candle and return inside. Go W across the translucent stained glass and you'll
meet Mogsam the Moogle. Give him Mojito's letter and proceed W to the next area
(we'll save later). Here, light up both candles under the gargoyle and examine
the Bloodstone to receive 'Black Hood'. Now unlight the left candle so that the
shadow of the gargoyle is facing left and go up the stairs.

 Now enter the balcony and follow it until you're on the other side of the room
with the gargoyle statue. Here, light up the 3 candles and examine the
Bloodstone to get 'Venetia Shield'. Now unlight the left candle (under the
angel-garoyle statue) and a blueish staircase appears. Return, save your game
with Mogsam, use some Tents and go up these stairs...

   <vin> Up these stairs is the boss of the area and afterwards, the characters
   will reunite. I recommend leveling up these 4 characters until they reach a
   lv. similar to those of Zidane and his party.

 Move forward, light up the last candle to trigger a...

 |   Strategy: Okay, Valia Pira.  If you didn't get the Bloodstones through  |
 |  the palace,  the boss  will enhance  its properties  according  to each  |
 |  Bloodstone. It'll enhance DEF, MAG DEF, etc. If you got 'em all,  it'll  |
 |  be easy. Make sure to have Auto-Reflect of cast Carbuncle with Eiko. If  |
 |  you got Quina,  you can use  Magic Hammer to  deplet its MP,  cast  Bad  |
 |  Breath to deal some status ailments on it, Lv.3 Def-less to reduce DEF,  |
 |  Steiner/Freya  should attack nonstop  (Steiner could use  Armor Break a  |
 |  couple of times).                                                        |

 |   Amarant  should use Chakra if Reflect is on.  All in  all, pretty easy  |
 |  battle.  The attacks of Valia Pira are the  3 -aga spells,  Reflect  on  |
 |  self and Mustard Bomb  (which rarely uses).  Once  it uses Reflect, use  |
 |  Dispel to remove it.                                                     |

 +===========================================================================+

 Now light up the candle behind you and use the teleport that appears. We'll
now be in control of Zidane and the rest. Move over to the E side and enter the
portal. A scene with Kuja triggers. Go inside where Kuja is to trigger a scene
and now Eiko is out of the party! Dammit. Rearrange your party [I'm taking
Vivi, Dagger and Quina with me], and check the SW table to find 'Namingway
Card'.

 Return outside and use the left portal (from where Zidane and co. came from).
Go W and instead of going up the stairs like you did before, keep going N, drop
the rope ladder and exit to the world map. You'll follow Kuja automatically
towards the Lost Continent and into Esto Gaza. I recommend taking Quina with
you.

 At the World Map, before entering Esto Gaza, let's go find another Friendly
Creature. Run around the Mitmakis Ice Field area - where the Chocobo's
footprints are and you'll find Feather Circle. Give it a Moonstone to receive
30 AP and a Lapis Lazuli. Now enter Esto Gaza.

 In here, enter the building and a little scene triggers. Once it's over, go E
and enter the shop. In here, buy: Zorlin Shape [Zidane], Flame Saber [Steiner],
Heavy Lance [Freya], Scissor Fangs [Amarant], Asura's Rod [Dagger], Hamelin
[Eiko], OCTAGON ROD [Vivi]...

   <vin> Make sure to buy this Octagon Rod. Teaches Vivi all his -aga spells.
   Awesome for the collection.

 6 Red Hats [Zidane, Vivi, Dagger, Quina, Eiko and Amarant], Power Vest [to
whoever needs it]. That's it. But whatever items you need, return to the
previous room and go up the stairs. Speak to Mogrika the Moogle and grab her
letter for Moolan. Now go E from Mogrika and enter...

"I wanted to be by your side, Eiko... so I became Mog." -- Mog


 The reason I brought Quina with us here is because of 2 things. There are some
                             Blue Magics for her here, Bad Breath if you didn't
o------------.------------o  get it earlier and she's useful against the Boss
|    Enemy   | Blue Magic |  of the area, at the end of it. With that said,
|------------|------------|  let's get started.
| Red Dragon |   Twister  |
| Worm Hydra | Bad Breath |   At the beginning of the mine, enter the house at
| BlueWraith |    Frost   |  the left and in here, check the SE corner to find
o------------'------------o  '9,693 Gil'. Check the S side of the second floor
                             to find 'Ether'. Exit W, go down the ladder and
search for a hidden 'Red Hat'. Return to the entrance and go E this time.
There's nothing in here, so exit right. You'll find a broken well here with a
rope going down.

 Before going down, climb up the ledge on the right (marked with a "!"), go
right and enter the cave. Follow the path, grab 'Golden Hairpin' from the left,
return to the well and go down the rope. Once you're on ground, go E and speak
to Moolan the Moogle here. Give him Mogrika's letter and he also has a letter
for Mogtaka. Accept it.

 Save your game, check the SE corner to find a hidden 'Wing Edge' and go E
outside the room. Inside the cave, follow the path and examine the dead end to
find 'Gaia Gear'. Return to the well... and as you return, you'll have to fight
2 Red Dragons. These are limited, so MAKE SURE QUINA EATS ONE...

   <vin> Before entering, I dunno why but I was thinking these Red Dragons were
   the Ruby Dragons from FFVIII. Why?! o_O

 Go W from the well and enter the building when you get to it. Open the chest
in here to find 'Demon's Mail'. Return inside and enter the cave. Speak to
Mogtaka the Moogle and give him Moolan's letter. Read it and use the shop if
needed. Use a tent and save. Leave through the upper stairs. Enter the
building, fight the Red Dragon and grab 'Elixir' from the chest and return to
the well.

 Use the lever next to it and pull it down 3 times to have the rope fall down,
giving you access to the lower areas. Go down, kill some more Red Dragons and
proceed. Some scenes trigger as you leave the well area and you'll obtain
'Ribbon' through it. Once it's over, you'll be against...

 |   Strategy: Ugh, this battle is annoying. Seriously. Wings do around 400  |
 |  dmg.  to one character.  Nothing.  Bio inflicts some dmg.  plus Poison.  |
 |  Venom Powder deals Venom (Poison + "Stop"). Viral Smoke inflicts Virus,  |
 |  so no XP/AP for the ones that end the fight with it.                     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Make sure to steal the Golden Hairpin  and  the Demon's Vest.  Anyway,  |
 |  have Quina use Magic Hammer  until you deplete its 1,500+ MP  so he can  |
 |  stop using Bio.  Have Quina  be the  healer and  use White Wind to heal  |
 |  around 900+ HP. Eiko should focus on using Fenrir and Dagger should use  |
 |  Ifrit.  Once Zidane steals all  3 items  (well,  the 2 important ones),  |
 |  have him attack over and over.                                           |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Quina can  also use  Lv.3 Def-less some times to have Zidane deal over  |
 |  2,000 dmg. per hit. Your best bet here, use Eidolons all the way. Don't  |
 |  use Ethers and just attack normally after you run out of MP.             |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 Watch the scenes... Lady Hilda is here o_O. We'll now be back at Lindblum.
FINALLY!!! Cid is human again. Anyway, when you get control of Zidane again,
speak to Mogki the Moogle and grab his letter for Kumool. Now go to the
Conference Room (room under the Throne Room) and a scene triggers. A rather
long one...

   <ATE> Team [Tantalus & Steiner]

   <vin> Man, it's been a while since the last ATE, huh?! =D

 Now we now our next destination... an old castle on the N side of the
Forgotten Continent...

   <ATE> Recovery [Cid]

 Watch the scenes that follow and a beautiful FMV triggers. Beautiful Dagger
=3. You'll also receive 'Garnet' throughout the scenes. You'll now have control
of the awesome Hilda Garde 3. Now, make any party you want [I'mma taking Freya,
Amarant and Eiko].

* Can only pick 1.

 Alrighty, wanna do some more things?!?! Some more fun stuff with you beautiful
Choco? Ok, let's do this. Go to either the Chocobo Lagoon or the Chocobo's
Forest and dig up all the Chocograph pieces you need. There are 6 total. Once
you dig 'em all up, you'll form the Chocograph Mist Ocean.

 [_] Mist Ocean [Sky Ability]

 Go to the NE corner of the Mist Continent (just a little bit N of the
Alexandrian Harbor) and you'll find 2 small isles. Dig around these (to the N
in the open ocean) to find the chest.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Now that we have the Sky ability, we can do another Chocograph (the last one
in our possession.

 [_] Outer Island 2 [Sapphire x11, Circlet, Pumice Piece, Hilda Garde 3 Card]

 Go to the NE side of the Outer Continent and look for the island. It's NW of
the Desert Palace. NW, not NE.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Now we have the Sky Ability and a Golden Choco. You can fly with Choco and
land in any forest. Now, where's the next location to dig? Chocobo's Air
Garden. This place can only be reached by using a Dead Pepper on certain areas
where there's a shadow on the ground. The 6 Chocograph Pieces tell the 5
locations, but if you don't get it, here they are:

 [_] Salvage Archipelago. NW of the isle with the Chocobo's footprints near the
     Chocobo's Lagoon, there's a small isle with a little forest. Here's the
     shadow.
 [_] Kuentis Peninsula. In the SE corner of the Outer Continent. Remember the
     claw-shaped side of the Continent? Look at the tip of the left side of the
     claw.
 [_] Alexandria Plains. On a cliff behind Alexandria.
 [_] In the middle of the ocean. In the center of all 4 continents (Mist,
     Outer, Lost, Forgotten).
 [_] Seayways Canyon. On the NE side of the Forgotten Continent, SE from the N
     Qu's Marsh and NE from Oeilvert.

 Once you find it, speak to Mene and he'll tell you that it'll appear on the
map from here on out. That's nice to know. Anyway, there are only 3 Chocographs
left to dig, so here they are:

 [_] Outer Island
 [_] Fairy Island
 [_] Forgotten Island

 The locations of these Chocographs are the following:

 [_] Outer Island [Amethyst x21, Garnet x16, Genji Armor, Ragnarok]

 Go to the E side of the Outer continent and you'll see a small island with a
small forest in middle. Dig on the N side to find the chest.

 [_] Fairy Island [Potion x33, Annoyntment x15, Holy Miter, Dark Matter Card]

 Open your map and you'll see a large island SW of the Iifa Tree. Land there
and dig on the edge of the mountain, the E side of it.

 [_] Forgotten Island [Ribbon, Rebirth Ring, Amythyst x13, Ark Card]

 Directly W from the island of the previous Chocograph (Fairy Island), there's
a odd-shaped island with a small forest. Land there and dig over the mountains
to find it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Now that we have all the Chocographs done, go to the NW corner of your map and
you'll find an island that isn't on the map. Land here and use a Dead Pepper on
the crack on the mountain to find Chocobo's Paradise. In here, go to the pools
on the NE side of the first screen and have 'em burst you up to the next area,
where you'll find Fat Chocobo.

 After the little scene, Mene will return to the Forest/Lagoon. Return to the
Fat Chocobo and speak to the Golden Chocobo on the left of his. He'll give you
infinite Dead Peppers. Nice. Now check the SE corner of the area until you see
"!". Go up, then left up here and another "!" appears. Use it to take out the
Reef Chocobo from the water.

 He'll tell you about the a crack on a mountain in the N island of the Outer
Continent. The Mountain Chocobo here also tells you something interesting.
Speak to all the Chocobo's to find Crack locations. Since we're near, go to the
Lost Continent and on the mountain on the N side of the Continent, you'll find
a crack on the mountain with: Lapis Lazuli x41, Rosetta Ring, Protect Ring,
Airship Card.

 Now go to the long island on the N side of the Outer Continent. This is the
Cazedil Plains. There's a crack on the only mountain here. Use a Dead Pepper to
find the Mognet Central...

   <vin> Wow, so here's where it is.

 There's nothing to do here, at the moment, but I love the fact that every
Moogle is speaking of THAT thing. You'll find out later ;). Now go to the large
island NW of the Chocobo's Lagoon to find Daguerreo.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 In here, from the central fork, go E then check the S side inside the water to
find 'Capricorn'. Now go E into the room. Speak to the four-armed man and he'll
assign you a rank, depending on how many chests you have opened. If you've
followed my guide completely, you'll have already an S-Rank.

 He'll run away. Follow him to the entrance and speak to him. He'll give you
'Rank S Medal'. His name is Gilgamesh... wow o_O. So that's how he started,
haha. Return to the room where Gilgamesh was and go up the platform. Save with
Noggy. Now speak to the Synth Master and start Synthesizing. You'll need:

 o Gladius x1
 o Zorlin Shape x1
 o Mythril Fork x1
 o Cotton Robe x1
 o Feather Boots x2
 o Wing Edge x2

 That's all we need. Make: Sargatanas [Zidane], Glutton's Robe [Quina] and 2
Battle Boots. If you wanna make another Light Robe and/or Black Robe, that's
fine with me. You can also make Gemstones, which allows you to learn summons
with Dagger and Eiko.

   <vin> Have you noticed that the more Gemstones you have, the more powerful
   that summon is?

 Now go left to the next area. Here, check the right side to find several
books. Examine them and now move to the left side of the balcony. Speak to the
man looking at the books and tell him his book is at the right side of the
balcony. Go inside and go down the hidden ladder. In the next area, go left and
speak to the guy if you have a Namingway Card and he'll change the name of one
of your characters.

 Go to the far left to find 'Elixir'. Now go to the far right side to find
another 'Elixir'. Return to the entrance of Daguerreo and go W into the room.
In here, you'll have to fix the lifts on the left side. Use the left lever
twice to reveal a hole. Examine it and now examine the pole next to the levers
and now use the right lever a couple of times until it's on top and return to
the balcony (after the synth shop).

 Push the button on the left side and enter the room. The shop is now open.
Time to buy some weapons. Make sure to buy: Rune Blade [Steiner], Obelisk
[Freya], Tiger Fangs [Amarant], Defense Gloves [Steiner/Freya], a Coronet for
every character, Diamond Helm [Steiner/Freya], Demon's Vest [whoever needs it]
and Diamond Armor [Steiner/Freya].

 It'll take you a crapload of Gil, but make sure you buy it all. You can learn
some very good skills from these. At the balcony, where the Item shop is, speak
to the man standing there and if you agree with the shop owner more times,
you'll receive 'Meteor Card'. If you agree with the other dude, you'll receive
'Flare Card'.
¨
 Return now to the entrance and go N. Examine the wall and you'll have to put
in some Ore. Every 4 Ore you put in, you'll receive an Aquamarine. Make as many
as you want and now head over to Treno.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Head over to Queen Stella and hand her over Capricorn and Sagittarius.

  9 :: 20,000 Gil
 10 :: Rosetta Ring

 Head over to the Weapon Shop and it's time to fight. You'll be fighting an
Amdusias. Just equip your Sargatanas and use Soul Blade to instantly petrify
it. Quick and easy. You'll receive 'Running Shoes' for winning. Now leave
Treno, take Vivi and Quina with you and head over to Quan's Dwelling. Head into
the second screen to trigger a scene...

   <vin> Just WTF's going on?! o_O

 Anyway, after the scene, check the clock to find 'Running Shoes'. Now board
your Hilda Garde 3 and before I forget, press /\ to be "inside" the ship and
move to the third area (where Amarant is). Before opening the gate, there's a
ladder. Next to this ladder is a little compartment that has 'Tent' inside.

 Remember to go to Moguta and give him the Kupo Nut we've been carrying around
to receive 'Ether'. Now leave the Grotto through the vines and look around the
forest areas to find the Friendly Creature Garuda. Give it a Lapis Lazuli and
you'll get 40 AP and a 'Diamond'. Now go to Vile Island (the large island SW of
the Iifa Tree). Once here, run around the forested area until you find the last
Friendly Creature, Yan.

 Give it a Diamond to receive 50 AP and 'Rosetta Ring'. "Now you can reach the
round guy"...

   <vin> What does that mean, you ask?! It's for an optional boss. =3

 Now, return to the World Map, it's finally time to proceed with the story. If
you've followed the guide, you should've seen Ipsen's Castle by now. It's on
the NW side of the Forgotten Contient. Remember the Castle surrounded by
cliffs?! It's that one. Land in front and enter...

 As you enter, Amarant will leave the party, so he's unavailable in the castle.
                          Now enter the castle itself and before you even
o---------.------------o  proceed, open up your menu and equip your weakest
|  Enemy  | Blue Magic |  weapons. The weaker they are, the more dmg. they do.
|---------|------------|  Strange isn't it? Well, that how things are done in
| Veteran |    Doom    |  this castle.
o---------'------------o
                           At the start of the castle, check the left side to
find a chest with 'Dagger' and the right side a chest with 'Aquarius'. Now
proceed to the next area to find Kumool the Moogle. Give him Mogki's letter,
save your game and open the chest on the N side of the room to find 'Cat's
Claws'. Now slide down the pole on the right.

 Now go up the ladder to the N and at the top, go W to the next area. Hop on
the ladder when you get to it and go up. Jump off to the left to find
'Javelin'. Return to the ladder, jump right and open the hidden chest to find
'Broadsword'. Return to the ladder and go down. Follow the path until you reach
another ladder.

 Go up to the next area and quickly jump off the ladder to find a chest with
'Rod'. Return to the ladder and go up. Enter the room and go S in this room.
Examine the right wall and start using the options that start appearing. After
"trying something drastic", Rest and the door'll open, which has a chest with
'Barette'.

 Return, go N and use the elevator. A scene triggers with Amarant in here. Once
it's over, go up the stairs and grab 'Water Mirror', 'Fire Mirror', 'Wind
Mirror' and 'Earth Mirror'. Now try leaving to trigger a scene and a...

 |   Strategy: Ok,  this dude,  Taharka is rather easy.  He has  2 stances.  |
 |  When he's normal and when he closes.  When he closes up,  your physical  |
 |  attacks will do pitiful dmg.  Only way to hurt it is through Magic,  so  |
 |  if you brought Vivi,  Flare/Osmose its ass while it's like  this.  Have  |
 |  Zidane steal while closed.  That Orichalcon is  a very powerful  weapon  |
 |  for Zidane,  so make sure you get it.  You can buy 'em later,  but it's  |
 |  better to get one right now.                                             |
 |                                                                           |
 |   As  for its  attacks,  he  has  Chop,  which deals  750  dmg.  to  one  |
 |  character.  Pff.  Blizzaga deals  around 450 dmg. to all characters and  |
 |  850 dmg. to one character, so if you brought armor against Ice,  that's  |
 |  nice.  Ram deals  350 dmg.  to one character,  but it only uses it when  |
 |  it's closed. These are all its attacks.                                  |
 |                                                                           |
 |   If you want to, you can use Silence on it to forget about Blizzaga. If  |
 |  you want to,  also,  have Steiner  use Armor/Power Break.  If you don't  |

 Watch the scene after the fight, heal up and leave the room. Return over to
where Kumool the Moogle is and you'll see that one of your characters almost
falls into a trap hole. Save your game and fall down the trap hole directly in
front of Kumool (right under the chest). You'll be on top of the upside down
chandalier which has a chest with 'Maiden Prayer'.

 Now return to the entrance of the castle and you'll see that some stairs just
revealed right next to you (in the middle of the room). Follow this balcony to
the next area, go down the stairs and into the next room. Go to the W side of
this room to find a chest with 'Air Racket'. Now use the elevator in the middle
of the room and open the chest in this round room to find 'Golem's Flute'.

 Now grab the red pot-thing on the right and put it over the base to the NE.
Now put the NW pot on the E base. The NE pot now on the NW base and the E pot
on the NE base. You'll now do something with the sword and now pick up the NE
pot to get 'Ancient Aroma'.

 Return once again to Kumool, climb up the pipe (now you can) to find 2 chests
with 'Mage Staff' and 'Fork'. Now leave the castle and a little scene triggers.
Afterwards, you'll be inside alone. I recommend equipping your Sargatanas and
Soul Blading everything. You can Petrify practically everything here. Go down
the pole near Kumool and go to the S side of this room. You'll see Amarant
here.

 After some talk, he'll rejoin the team, so leave the castle and another scene
triggers...

"I used to know someone like that. He was a loser..." -- Amarant


 During the scene, you'll now have to drop 2 characters at each location:

 [_] Water Shrine: Dagger and Eiko: Just S of Ipsen's Castle.
 [_] Fire Shrine: Freya and Amarant: Inside the volcano in the center of the
                  Lost Continent.
 [_] Wind Shrine: Vivi and Steiner: SE of Oeilvert. In between mountains.
 [_] Earth Shrine: Zidane and Quina: This one is near the Desert Palace.
                   There's a place where the Earth is shaking. Prepare yourself
                   and land there.

 Before entering, make sure you're protected against Earth, since we're going
against an Earth-elemental boss [Gaia Gear is awesome, or you could equip your
Auto-Float ability]. I hope you've been using Quina, or at least have been
getting her Blue Magic.

 Also, equip Accessories/Armor that protect against Ice/Fire/Thunder magic
[Protect Ring/Ribbon], since the boss knows -aga spells as well. You can very
well use Reflect Rings, but just reduce the dmg. if you don't have the rings.

 Inside the shrine, go further in and press X as the "!" appears. A sort of
epic scene of how Zidane's and Dagger's parties go inside their respective
shrines. Love this part =3. Examine the pedestal, a little scene triggers, as
well as a...

 |   Strategy:  Ok,  this boss  is easy  if you did what I said above.  His  |
 |  attacks  are:  Earthquake deals around  450 dmg.  to  both  characters.  |
 |  Firaga/Thundaga/Blizzaga deals around 400 dmg. to one character. Double  |
 |  Slash deals around 1,200+ dmg. These are all his attacks.                |
 |                                                                           |
 |   You can absorb one attack,  negate 3  more and  you only have to worry  |
 |  about his Double Slash. This battle might seem hard because Quina isn't  |
 |  used  as  much  as  other  characters.  I  never  used  her in previous  |
 |  playthroughs  and I decided to use her in this one.  Man, I was missing  |
 |  out something big. She's awesome, if you have the Blue Magic, of course. |
 |                                                                           |
 |   You  can use Mighty Guard to cast Protect on yourself.  Use Bad Breath  |
 |  to inflict Mini, Darkness and Slow on him to make you nearly invincible. |
 |  Zidane  should deal  around  4,200+ dmg.  per hit, which in 4 hits, the  |
 |  Earth Guardian is downed. Have Quina use White Wind through the battle.  |
 |  You might not even need it XD.                                           |

 |   You can also eat the Earth Guardian to learn Earth Shake... ROFL!  I'm  |
 |  serious. Have Quina eat him while Tranced while he has 15,000 dmg.       |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 Watch the scene afterwards, make a party and head over to the Shimmering
Islands, the portal to Terra. Make note that once you return from Terra on Disc
4, many places will be sealed off and you won't be able to enter the place, so
make sure you got all the items and/or all the Moogles/letters. These places
are:

 o Ice Cavern
 o Observatory Mountain [outside Dali]
 o North Gate
 o South Gate
 o Fossil Roo
 o Pinnacle Rocks
 o Conde Petie
 o Mountain Path
 o Iifa Tree
 o Desert Palace
 o Oeilvert
 o Esto Gaza
 o Mount Gulug

 Also, make sure you've got at least one piece of equipment from all the Synth
Shops and Weapon/Armor shops. Some items disappear once you return. Warning ya!
;)

 Also, there are some bosses that come up pretty soon, and you won't be able to
equip them properly, so make sure to do it right now. There are 3 bosses total,
and you'll have a party in which you can't choose who comes and who stays. Make
sure they "at least" have 1 or 2 of the abilities/armor I ask:

 o Zidane: Gaia Gear (Auto-float if you don't have Gaia Gear), Coral Ring,
           Antibody
 o Vivi: ---
 o Dagger: Gaia Gear (Auto-float if you don't have Gaia Gear)
 o Steiner: Coral Ring (Thunder Gloves and Shield Armor if you don't have a
            spare Coral Ring)
 o Freya: Antibody
 o Quina: Coral Ring  (Ribbon)
 o Eiko: ---
 o Amarant: Antibody

 Now, where's the Shimmering Island? Haha, it's the small island S of the Lost
Continent. After a nice little scene and FMV, we'll be at...

 Once you regain control, go E to the next area. A little girl runs off. From
here, go W down the stairs to find a chest with 'Coronet'. Go N to find 'Dragon
Wrist'. Return to the fork before the stairs and go N this time. In the next
area, check the left side for a chest with 'Elixir'. Now follow the little girl
until you reach an area with spider webs used like rope ladders.

 Go down twice to find 'Remedy'. Return up one web and go NW. Jump across the
gap to find a hidden chest with 'Mythril Racket'. Now climb down, grab 'Demon's
Vest' and go left. Follow the little girl once again and now cross the bridge
N. Go up this first set of stairs and before going NE up another set of stairs,
keep going W like going inside the wall. Follow the hidden path around to find
a chest on the lower side with 'Minerva's Plate'.

 Return and now go up the stairs until you reach the next area, in which a

 Watch the scene and now Steiner and Dagger will leave the party... once again.
>_>. Go left following the stairs and in this next area, go right next to the
stairs to find a hidden path. Follow it to find a chest with 'Flash Hat'.
Return and enter the N room. Speak to the people here which are staring at a
crystal and now go down the stairs to the right.

 Go down here and grab 'Elixir' from the S side. Return to the previous floor
and go right this time. Enter the house on the right, open the chest in here to
find 'Wing Edge'. Now examine the pot to find Moorock the Moogle. Now pick up
his letter for Mozme. And check the Mogshop. Buy a Defender [Steiner], some
Flash Hats for those that need it, a Platinum Helm [Steiner/Freya], Adaman Hat
[for those who needs resistance to Thunder for the following boss fights], 6
Dragon Wrists [Vivi, Dagger, Freya, Quina, Eiko and Amarant].

 Now, Stiltzkin will be on the lower side of the room...

   <vin> Just how in heaven's name did he get here?! More importantly, how is
   he gonna get back? XD

 Buy Diamon, Ether and Elixir for 2,222 Gil. Return outside, go to the W side
of Bran Bal and enter the Inn (building to the left). A scene triggers in here.
When you regain control of Zidane, enter the room with the crystal and go
downstairs. Speak to the "bimbo" in the SW corner to have the scene continue.
When we gain control of Eiko...

   <ATE> Place to Call Home [Quina and Zidane]

 Now open the chest next to Steiner to find 'Elixir'. Exit the Inn...

   <ATE> Where the Heart Is [Vivi and Zidane]

 Now check the N side of this area (next to the "water") to find a hidden
'Angel Earrings'. Now enter the room with the crystal...

   <ATE> Came into this World [Amarant, Zidane and Bimbo]

 Speak to Quina and she'll join the party. Now exit SE and...

   <ATE> The Truth [Zidane and Bimbo]

 Speak to Vivi here and he'll join as well. Go W and speak to Amarant. He'll
join too. Now go through the green gate and follow the path until you find
Bimbo...

 |   Strategy: Ok,  we start this battle as Quina and Steiner. At the start  |
 |  of the fight, have Quina cast Mighty Guard and Steiner should use Shock  |
 |  through the battle.  Abadon's  attacks  consists  of  a physical attack  |
 |  targeting  one  character,  another physical attack which targets all 3  |
 |  characters and Thundaga.                                                 |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Make  note that Shock deals  9,999 dmg. to Abadon, and Quina's Twister  |
 |  deals around 7,000+ dmg. After Zidane arrives, just attack and kill it.  |
 |  Nice and easy.                                                           |

 |  it'll be attacking you as well with Earth Shake  and physical  attacks.  |
 |  When it's time for Dagger to enter the fight,  it'll drop  your HP to 1  |
 |  with an attack called Smash,  having Dagger healing you to tiptoe form.  |
 |  Once Dagger arrives, have her spam Curaga and Zidane attacks.            |
 |                                                                           |

 +===========================================================================+

 After the consecutive fights, Steiner, Quina and Dagger join the party. Return
and go pick up Amarant, Freya, Vivi and Eiko. Rearrange your party (I'm taking
Eiko, Steiner and Amarant). Now go N, to the first room where Eiko and Vivi
were trapped. Check the chair to find a hidden 'Holy Mitter'. Now return to the
room where you fought the Shell Dragon and go W to find a strange looking room.

 Check the N side and activate the mechanism. This lights up the buds in the
room and gives you 30 seconds to exit the room. What you need to do is to move
to the SW side of the area without moving next to the lighted buds. If you move
next to one, you'll have to fight a random enemy and the time still counts. I
like to go S, then W through the center, then S once again at the far left side
and exit the room.

 Cross the bridge to the next area. This area has some sort of mechanism that
allows you to move the platform. Increase the Heading to 3 and go left. Go up
the path at the left side and hop on the platform. From here, go up and hop on
the platform once again to get a chest with '20,007 Gil'. Now return to the
platform controls.

 Increase the Heading to 4 this time, return to the previous room, go up the
platform from right in front of you, now move to the top and go up to the next
floor. In this strange circular area, go NE and go up one floor. Use the Blue
teleporter on the right to find a chest with 'Elixir'. Return to the red
teleporter and use the Blue teleporter on the left to find a chest with
'Carabini Mail'.

 Return to the previous room and go S and use the portal up to the next floor.
When you get to a fork, use the lower Blue teleporter to find a chest at the
end with 'Battle Boots'. Return to the previous fork and go N this time. Speak
to Mozme the Moogle when you get to her, use Tents, save your game and change
your party. Give her Moorock's letter and you'll receive 'Kupo Nut'.

 There will be 3 more Boss Fights in the next area, so, let's better get
prepared. Take the characters you want, but I'll take Zidane, Vivi, Steiner and
Eiko. Equip 'em with armor/accessories that protect against Wind and Thunder
(Coronets for Wind are awesome, Coral Rings are good for Thunder. Ribbons are
awesome for both! =D). Also, and more important, make sure to equip Locomotion
on EVERYBODY!!!

 |   Strategy: Ok,  the Silver  Dragon,  Kuja's pet  is here  for the first  |
 |  battle.  Not hard  at all.  This one is  very easy. If you're protected  |
 |  from Wind, then Twister and Aerial Slash won't deal dmg.,  which by the  |
 |  way,  deal around  1,700+ dmg.  the former  and  850+ dmg.  the latter.  |
 |  Shockwave deals around  1,300+ physical dmg.  to all the party and Claw  |
 |  deals around 800 physical dmg. to one character.                         |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Very quick battle.  After Zidane  steals all 3 items,  have him attack  |
 |  normally, Steiner should do the same as well. Have Vivi use Flare/Osmose |
 |  and  Eiko should heal  all with Curaga. Between Zidane and Steiner, you  |
 |  should deal over 6,000 dmg. Flare should do the same.  In 3 turns after  |
 |  stealing,  you're done with it.  Make sure to have your  HP high before  |
 |  the end of the fight.                                                    |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok, Garland is obviously harder than the Silver Dragon.  His  |
 |  attacks are:  Psychokinesis deals around  950+ physical dmg. Wave deals  |
 |  around  1,100+ physical dmg.  Flare deals around 1,300+ dmg. and he can  |
 |  use Stop, hence why I told you to equip Locomotion.                      |
 |                                                                           |
 |   These are all of his attacks. Silence him if possible to have him stop  |
 |  using Flare.  Inflict Darkness on  him if you  have Dagger  and  you're  |
 |  ready to go.  Remember to steal  the items.  We already have the Battle  |
 |  Boots,  so the Dark Gear and the Ninja Gear are very good for us.  Just  |
 |  like the previous battle, have Zidane attack, Steiner should use  Flare  |
 |  Sword/Shock,  Vivi  should  stick  to  Flare  and  alternate  Eiko with  |
 |  Curaga-all and Holy/Madeen.                                              |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok, time to fight Kuja. Nice. He has little attacks, and all  |
 |  are magic-based,  so here we go.  Thundaga deals around 1,400+ dmg.  to  |
 |  one  character,  Demi deals  1/4  of dmg. of your total HP.  Flare Star  |
 |  deals your actual level times 35 (lv. x 35). Ultima ends the fight.      |
 |                                                                           |
 |   The good thing about this fight is that you can go  all-out  from  the  |
 |  beginning since we already have all the stealable items of Kuja (if you  |
 |  followed my guide,  you should have  already the Light  Robe).  You can  |
 |  steal  that  extra  Carabini Mail for  either Steiner  or  Freya.  Have  |
 |  Steiner  stick with  Shock for  a guaranteed  9,999 dmg.  Zidane should  |
 |  attack  and/or toss  Ethers. Vivi must use Flare over and over and Eiko  |
 |  should only heal with Curaga.                                            |
 |                                                                           |

 Man oh man, Kuja Tranced. Damn him. After the awesome scenes and the FMVs,
once you've regained control, follow the path and watch the scenes. Head over
to Bran Bal and you'll split up. You'll finally know Bimbo's name... Mikoto...

   <vin> Mikoto... just as I read her name, the Mikoto from Mai-HiME came to
   mind. Yeah, I know... I'm an anime freak XD.

 Watch the scenes and FMVs and the Disc is over. Now onto the last one bro!!!

"... can lost time be recovered?" -- Amarant


 Well, we start off Disc 4 in the Black Mage Village and it a rather beatiful
melody. If you haven't realized it yet, all of our characters have grown a lot
throughout the game. Zidane, Dagger, Amarant, Vivi... even Steiner. Man, this
game is the best of the best. ='D

  ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯     ¯¯¯¯¯
 Remake your party... which you can pick whoever you can because we have some
things to do before going to the Iifa Tree. First of all, return inside the
Black Mage Village and enter the Weapon Shop. If you wanna collect everything
you can, buy: Wizard Rod [Dagger], Siren's Flute [Eiko], Thief Hat [Zidane],
some Holy Miters if you want and another Dark Gear, if you want too, of course.

 Now go to the Synthesis Shop. There are a ton of new things to Synth here.
Don't do the Masamune. You can steal one from one of the next bosses. You
should only do what you can. I recommend: Priest's Racket [Dagger/Eiko],
Bracer, Golden Skullcap, Grand Helm, Brave Suit and Grand Armor. These are
rather expensive but besides that, they use weapons/armor that you can't buy
anywhere, so you can only make one or 2, so make damn sure you've learnt the
skills/ablities from 'em before using them (most likely Steiner's Armor's Break
from the Mythril Sword).

 Now go to the Invincible's deck by pressing /\ on the World Map...

   <vin> Take note that you'll be using the Invinvible from here on out instead
   of the Hilda Garde. This ship can land anywhere, except for water, forests
   and mountains. Now you can land anywhere on the Forgotten Continent, not
   only grassy areas ;).

 Once here, speak to Dagger, Vivi and Steiner if you want and go S to the other
room. In here, open the chest on the left side of the ship to find the
'Pisces' Stellazzio...

   <vin> Man, just how in heaven's name did a Stellazzio get here?

 Speak to Amarant and Freya if you want to and go S if you want to too and
speak to Quina and Eiko. Now, on the World Map, first of all, let's go get
Zidane's Ultimate Weapon. Go near Esto Gaza and call Choco. Go to the center
where the Shimmerind Island was and use a Dead Pepper to find a chest with:
10x Aquamarine, Ultima Weapon, Maximilian, Invincible Card.

 Equip the Ultima Weapon on Zidane and the Maximilian on Steiner ASAP. Now
enter Daguerreo. There's a new shop open here... well, new stuff, same shop. It
has many things the Black Mage Village have. In here, buy: Ultima Sword
[Steiner], Power Wrists for whoever need 'em, Aegis Gloves [Steiner] and Kaiser
Helm (for collection only).

 We're also here for another thing. We're getting Steiner's third best weapon.
Leave the shop going up the stairs and speak to the old man dressed in black on
the left side of the hallway and he asks for the Magical Fingertip. He'll give
you "something" for it. Now leave the place and fly over to Treno. Go to the
Auction House and if you haven't done so yet, buy: Rat Tail, Une's Mirror,
Doga's Artifact and Griffin's Heart.

 Once you buy these Key Items, time to go sell 'em:

 o Rat Tail: Speak to the Adventurer outside the Synthesis Shop.
 o Une's Mirror: Speak to the Nobleman walking outside the Synthesis Shop.
 o Doga's Artifact: Speak to the Scholar inside the Synthesis Shop.
 o Griffin's Heart: Speak to the Adventurer outside the Synthesis Shop.

 Once you've sold the 4 items, return to the Auction House and now you'll be
able to bid for the Magical Fingertip. Buy this, although it's quite expensive
(I payed 56,200 Gil for it). Before returning to Daguerreo, move over to Queen
Stella and hand her over Aquarius and Pisces.

 11 :: 30,000 Gil
 12 :: Robe of Lords

 Afterwards, you'll receive all 12 Stellazzios, and now we need to go get the
13th. Wow... read 'em all and it gives you "slight" clues, but it's rather
difficult to know where it is. Go to Quan's Dwelling, go down the rope in the
first screen and check the S side, where the Scorpio Stellazzio was. You'll
find 'Ophiuchus'.

 Return to Queen Stella and give her Ophiuchus to receive:

 13 :: Hammer

 Nice. Before leaving Treno, go to the Weapon's Shop, equip your Sargatanas and
fight the Behemoth. Soul Blade its ass to receive 'Circlet'. Now return to
Daguerreo. Speak to the old man and give him the Magical Fingertip to receive
'Excalibur'...

   <vin> He mentions Gogo. Do you recognize him? Gogo from FFVI comes to mind.
   Remember him?

 Now go to Alexandria. Go to the church and speak to Stiltzkin. Buy the
Moonstone, Ruby and Elixir set for 5,555 Gil. If you bought everything you can
from him since the beginning of the game, speak to him once more to receive
'Ribbon'.

 Now speak to Kupo and choose Mognet. We'll start in a chain of Moogle letters,
so let's get started:

 o Kupo :: Atla the Moogle in Burmecia
 o Atla :: Mogryo the Moogle in the Black Mage Village
 o Mogryo :: Kumool the Moogle in Ipsen's Castle
 o Kumool :: Mois the Moogle in Fossil Roo's entrance (Qu's Side)
 o Mois* :: Noggy the Moogle in Daguerreo
 o Noggy :: Kupo the Moogle in Alexandria

*Mois is here because the Ice Cavern was sealed off. If you were doing this in
the previous disc, he'd be there. Funny fact, Mois is the only Moogle that says
"Thanks, dude!" instead of "Thanks, kupo!". Awesome.

 Anyway, once you deliver the last letter to Kupo, you finally know what that
****ing "thing" the Moogles have been talking about the whole game is. It's
Superslick. Guess who has it... huh?! You give up? It's Ruby. Go to her Mini-
Theater and talk to her to receive 'Superslick'. Now leave Alexandria and move
to the N side of the Outer Continent and enter the Mognet Central.

 Speak to Artemicion and he'll oil up the machine, giving you 'Protect Ring' as
a reward. Speak to Mosh on the NW corner and he'll thank you for delivering all
27 letters. Nice =D. Man, the Moogles running around are so adorable =3. We're
done with things to be done. There are some more, so I'll list 'em and you can
check the Sidequest/Minigames sections for more info.

 Now prepare yourself, regroup and head over to...

 Watch the FMVs and scenes that trigger as you approach the orb above the Iifa
Tree (awesome by the way). When they're over, you'll be in a...

 |   Strategy: Ok,  Nova Dragon.  It's an  upgraded  version of  the Silver  |
 |  Dragon. It has the same attacks, plus some of Garland's and Tidal Wave,  |
 |  which  deals  around  800  dmg.  to  all  characters.  Make  sure  your  |
 |  characters  are equipped with Ribbons,  which absorb both the Water and  |
 |  Wind  attacks of  Nova Dragon.  If you do so,  its only  stuck with two  |
 |  attacks  to hit  you,  Psychokinesis  (2,000 dmg. to one) and Shockwave  |
 |  (800+ dmg. to all).                                                      |

 |   As for the party, have Zidane steal that Grand Armor,  since you could  |
 |  only have done one (at least,  I only did one with the leftover armor I  |
 |  had), Eiko should heal all with Curaga over and over. Vivi, if you have  |
 |  Reflectx2 ability equipped, as well as Auto-Reflect,  bounce off Flares  |
 |  off him to deal 9,999 dmg. to Nova.                                      |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Amarant  should use  Aura when the spellcasters' MP gets  low and then  |
 |  spam No Mercy  to deal  around 8,000+ dmg.  with each use. Not a tought  |
 |  fight overall.  Equip Ribbons  and the Octagon Staff to absorb Wind and  |
 |  Water dmg.                                                               |

 +===========================================================================+

 After the scene, rearrange your party (I left it the way it is) and move
forward. In here, a "?" appears, which you can use to return to the Invincible.
The colored orb in front acts like a Moogle, in which you can also change
characters...

   <vin> All the enemies here in Memoria are weak against Petrification, so
   equipping Zidane's Sargatanas and using Soul Blade will defeat EVERY enemy
   here, but no XP nor AP will be gained. You get to pick.

 Move N from the Save Point...

   <vin> Feels weird to write that down. I'll miss the Moogles =(.

 ... while hugging the right wall, you'll find a hidden chest with 'Kain's
Lance'. Now follow the very linear path until you get to an area with many
stairs. Before leaving this area, before going up the last set of stairs,
there's a little path going off the main path. Follow it and a small "!"
appears. Press X to find 'The Tower'. Now proceed to the next area, equip Body
Temp, fire absorbing/nulling armor/accessories and move forward to trigger a...

 |   Strategy: Remember this snake chick? Ya, it's a boss now.  She's quite  |
 |  easy.  Make sure  you  equipped some  Rosetta Rings,  or  something  to  |
 |  absorb/null  Fire.  Also,  make sure  to equip the Body Temp ability to  |
 |  avoid  Mustard  Bomb.  Sword  Quiver  deals  around  900+ dmg.  to  one  |
 |  character. Flame Slash deals around 950+ dmg. to one character.  Firaga  |
 |  deals  around 500+ dmg.  to one character. She can also cast Reflect on  |
 |  herself.                                                                 |

 |   Make sure to have Zidane steal all 3 items,  which are all good.  Eiko  |
 |  should  focus  on  Curaga-ing  all,  Vivi  with  Flare  (Reflectx2  and  |
 |  Auto-Reflect  would  be nice  too)  and MAKE SURE  Amarant uses Aura on  |
 |  everyone.  If  you equipped  Fire  absorbing/nulling items, you'll only  |
 |  have  to deal with her physical attacks. Once you kill her,  she'll use  |
 |  Raining Swords, which deals around 1,500+ dmg. to all characters.        |
 |                                                                           |
 |   This is the reason why you used Aura on all characters.  Whoever dies,  |
 |  automatically revives using Aura's Auto-Life.                            |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 After the fight, move inside the room behind, called 'The Past' and a scene
triggers. Once it's over, move towards the castle and save your game, use some
tents. Now check the left side of the save point to find 'Angel Flute'. Now go
E and follow the path until a scene with Dagger triggers. Once its over, go up
the stairs to the next area.

 Another scene with Dagger triggers with the Invincible's Eye. Wow, looks
amazing. Once its over, before going up the stairs, go left to find a hidden
'Rune Claws' laying behind a pillar...

   <vin> This is Amarant's Ultimate Weapon. Nice! =D

 Now, equip some Wind/Fire absorbing armor/accessories and go up the stairs...

 |   Strategy: Man, Tiamat looks awesome. Anyway,  he has a ton of attacks.  |
 |  Lets  start off  with his  elemental attacks. Jet Fire deals around 600  |
 |  dmg. to all characters, which also inflicts Heat.  Twister deals around  |
 |  1,100 dmg.  to all characters.  Absorb MP  absorbs 80+ MP. Absorb Magic  |
 |  and Absorb Strength lowers your magic and strength and strengthens his.  |
 |  Silent Claw deals 1,200+ dmg. to one character and inflicts Silence. He  |
 |  can also cast Float and use Snort, which ejects a character from battle. |
 |  He only uses this last attack if you attack him while on Float status.   |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Told  ya he had a ton of attacks.  Anyway,  make sure to have equipped  |
 |  Wind and Fire absorbing/nulling armor/accessories.  Body Temp is a must  |
 |  too.  Please have  Vivi and  Eiko their Loudmouth ability equipped. The  |
 |  main  thing  to look  out in  the battle  is the  Absorb Magic/Strength  |
 |  attacks. These lower your stats while it maxes his.  He can kill you in  |
 |  one hit if the battle takes too long.                                    |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Make sure to steal that Grand Helm with Zidane. Just like the previous  |
 |  Grand Armor,  you might  have been able to make only one. Have Vivi use  |
 |  Flare and Flare alone. Don't use items,  don't put him to Sleep,  don't  |
 |  do anything besides Flare. Eiko.. man, if Tiamat sucks up all her Magic  |
 |  stat, her Curaga-all will heal for around 300. That's lame.              |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Once  that happens,  she'll be  useless.  Have her  use items and toss  |
 |  Elixirs if needed. Amarants role is very important. He MUST keep Vivi's  |
 |  and  Eiko's MP  high with Chakra. When they don't need it, have him use  |
 |  No Mercy to deal around 3,000+ dmg. When Eiko is useless,  turn Amarant  |
 |  into  a healer  using Chakra  over and  over while having  the Power Up  |
 |  ability equipped.                                                        |
 |                                                                           |

 Now go into the eyeball and follow the straightforward path until a little
scene with 2 planets colliding triggers. Enter the next area, use some Tents,
save your game and proceed to the next room... where you're underwater. Wow...
I seriously LOLed when i saw Quina swimming. Anyway, there's a secret boss on
the right side, hiding behind the rocks.

 Press X constantly until you speak to him. It's Hades. Check the sidequest
section for more info. Anyway, proceed forward and a little scene triggers.
Once it's over, equip yourself with Ribbons/Octagon Rod to absorb water, equip
your Body Temp ability and run upwards to trigger a...

 |   Strategy: Ok,  Kraken,  although she has  2 aids, she's the easiest of  |
 |  the Guardians.  That's right.  First of all, the attacks. Ink, which is  |
 |  shot from the Tentacles deals around 500+ dmg.  plus inflicts Darkness.  |
 |  Leg  deals around 1,900+ dmg.  Water-gun deals around 800+ dmg.  to one  |
 |  character.  Freeze freezes  you (duh!) and  Waterga deals around 2,000+  |
 |  dmg. to either all your characters or all enemies, healing 'em.          |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Ok, the things she has to steal aren't that good, but steal that Genji  |
 |  Helmet  if you want.  Have Vivi,  Eiko and Amarant target the Tentacles  |
 |  first with Flare,  Holy and  No Mercy. Since you should've equipped the  |
 |  Ribbons  and Octagon Rod,  you should  leave the  Waterga  to  do  your  |
 |  healing.  Ya.  Once the Tentacles are down, and you've stolen the items  |
 |  you want just spam Flare, Holy and No Mercy along with Zidanes physical  |
 |  attack until Kraken goes down.                                           |
 |                                                                           |

 After the fight, go up the stairs into the next room. In here, before going up
the stairs, go N to a broken balcony to find a hidden Save Point. Use some
Tents, save your game and proceed to the next area. After the little scene, go
up the ladder and in this next area, before going up the next ladder, check the
NW corner to find a hidden 'Mace of Zeus'...

   <vin> This is Vivi's Ultimate Weapon, teaching him his last Black Magic,
   Doomsday. Pretty awesome and powerful.

 Before going up the ladder make sure you equip some Earth absorbing/nullifying
armor/accessories like Circlets, if you have some, or Feather Boots, equip the
Locomotion ability on all characters, Antibody as well and MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE
your characters's lvs. aren't divisible by 5. Now go up the ladder to trigger

 |   Strategy:  Alrighty,  Lich.  We finally get  to him once again. He has  |
 |  several  attacks,  but most  of them  will  fail/miss  if you  prepared  |
 |  beforehand.  Anyway, here they are: Earthquake deals around 1,200+ dmg.  |
 |  to  all  the  party.  Earth Shake  deals  around  1,800+  dmg.  to  all  |
 |  characters.  He can  also cast  Stop, Doom and Death. He also has Venom  |
 |  Powder,  which inflicts  Venom on a  character, hence the reason why we  |
 |  equipped  Antibody.  Death Cutter  deals  around  1,500+  dmg.  to  one  |
 |  character, plus it inflicts Doom. Lv.5 Death kills all characters  with  |
 |  their lv. divisible by 5.                                                |

 |   Make  sure to steal all 3 items with Zidane.  Once you've done so, you  |
 |  can start screwing with him. Make ABSOLUTELY SURE Amarant casts Aura on  |
 |  every character,  this way,  if your killed by Doom or Death,  you  can  |
 |  instantly revive. Have Vivi cast Flare over and over.  Eiko should stay  |
 |  on Standby and wait 'til healing is required.                            |

 |   Also,  once Aura  is  party-casted,  have him use  Chakra or No Mercy.  |
 |  Zidane should stick to physical attacks as per usual. Also, having Eiko  |
 |  cast Holy is awesome. 9,999 dmg. per Holy isn't to shabby,  if I do say  |
 |  so myself.                                                               |

"How did you survive?" -- Dagger
              "I didn't have a choice, I wanted to come home to you." -- Zidane


 Ok, the final area of the game. Note that the 4 Chaos Guardians, Maliris,
Tiamat, Kraken and Lich are normal enemies here. What a pain. They are weaker
and only give AP, so use your Sargatanas/Soul Blade to get through. Follow the
path until you get to a Save Point. Tent yourself up, save your game, pick
whoever character you want to finish the game, and you'll see another option.

 You can teleport back to the beginning of Memoria, only that if you do so,
you'll have to run all the way back here. Ugh. Anyway, make preparations, an go
through the portal. Equip Wind absorbing armor/accessories (Ribbon, Robe of
Lords), make sure no character lv. is divisible by 5 and walk forward to
trigger a scene and a...

 |                                                                           |
 |   Strategy:  Man,  Deathguise.  Ok.  Man,  it can use Meteor,  which can  |
 |  either dmg. you a lot, or nearly killing you, or kill you.  He likes to  |
 |  use  it in its first turn a lot,  so make sure to heal and revive ASAP.  |
 |  As  for its  other attacks, it casts Death and Lv.5 Death.  He also has  |
 |  Twister,  which deals around  1,200+ dmg. to all characters, Spin which  |
 |  deals  around  1,600+ dmg.  to  all characters and  Demon's Claw, which  |
 |  deals 1,800+ dmg. to one character.                                      |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Just  like  all  previous  bosses,  have  Zidane  steal.  Yes,  steal!  |
 |  Afterwards, attack nonstop.  Vivi should Flare up its ass.  Eiko should  |
 |  Curaga the party every turn,  or right after Spin is executed.  Amarant  |
 |  should Aura the party and then stick to Chakra and No Mercy. If someone  |
 |  dies, quickly Aura that party member and continue.                       |
 |                                                                           |
 |   When Deathguise is "open", it'll uses attacks like Spin,  Demon's Claw  |
 |  and Meteor. When it closes, just like Taharka in Ipsen's Castle,  it'll  |
 |  use  Twister and  Lv.5 Death. Over all,  just a pushover. The only hard  |
 |  thing is Meteor, the beginning of the fight.  If you can overcome that,  |
 |  and you absorb/nullify Wind, you're good to go.                          |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 After the fight, return and save your game. Time to truly make preparations
against the last 2 bosses of the game. Remove all abilities you have equipped,
except for Auto-Haste. Equip all the abilities that protect you against status
ailments (Insomniac, Antibody, Bright Eyes, Clear Headed, Loudmouth, Jelly,
Locomotion, Body Temp). If you can, equip Auto-Regen. Man Eater is a plus too.

 As for equipment, make sure to equip accessories/armor that protect against
all elemental magic (Fire, Ice, Thunder) and Holy. Ribbons are awesome to have
equipped, as well as Protect Rings. Now, once ready, return to Kuja to trigger
a scene and a...

| Party lv  | Zidane 64, Steiner 50, Eiko 54, Amarant 57                      |
\=============================================================================/
 |                                                                           |
 |   Strategy: Ok,  Kuja is  hard...  but...  yes, he's hard. He has Spells  |
 |  like Flare,  which you should know pretty  damn well by now.  It  deals  |
 |  around  1,500+ dmg.  to one character. Holy, which you know pretty good  |
 |  too,  deals around  1,400+ dmg. to one character. He also casts Reflect  |
 |  on himself  and bounce  off these  2 spells  back at you.  He  also has  |
 |  Curaga, which heals him for around 3,000+ HP. Remember Flare Star? Yes,  |
 |  it still deals your lv x 35 of dmg. to you.                              |
 |                                                                           |
 |   What  to do?  As you can see,  I switched Steiner for Vivi.  This  is,  |
 |  well,  have Steiner use Shock over and over.  Each Shock  is 9,999 dmg.  |
 |  Nice.  Amarant should  Aura the  party ASAP,  leave Eiko  on Standby to  |
 |  Curaga the party or a character who needs it. Zidane for once and only,  |
 |  should only attack and use items if necessary.                           |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Steiner  and Zidane are  the source of dmg.  Eiko  is the  healer  and  |
 |  Amarant  is more  of a  support character  with Aura  and Chakra, since  |
 |  Steiner'll  be using a  lot of his MP.  Having Auto-Regen  here is very  |
 |  helpful, since Kuja is very fast and sometimes he can use 2 Flare Stars  |
 |  in a row. Damn him. Well Steiner and Zidane should both be doing around  |
 |  9,999 dmg., if not THAT dmg. so this fight should be over very quickly.  |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Kuja,  just like  in the  previous battle  with him,  unleashes Ultima  |
 |  after defeated.                                                          |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 Watch the scenes after the fight and now its time to rearrange the party. Do
it and now the menu is opened. Make sure you're prepared just like I suggested
above before Kuja's fight and now you'll be in another...

 |   Strategy:  Man,  oh  man,  Necron,  the final boss of the game. He has  |
 |  several attacks. He has so many that I'll better list 'em:               |
 |                                                                           |
 |  o Blue Shockwave: drops a characters HP to 1                             |
 |  o Protect: Casts Protect on self.                                        |
 |  o Shell: Casts Shell on self.                                            |
 |  o Curaga: Heals for around 3,000+ HP to him.                             |
 |  o Thundaga: deals around 500+ dmg. to the whole party.                   |
 |  o Firaga: deals around 500+ dmg. to the whole party.                     |
 |  o Blizzaga: deals around 500+ dmg. to the whole party.                   |
 |  o Holy: deals around 1,600+ dmg. to one character.                       |
 |  o Meteor: deals around 3,000+ dmg. to the whole party.                   |
 |  o Grand Cross: inflicts a plethora of status ailments.                   |
 |  o Neutro Ring: deals around 3,000+ dmg. to the whole party.              |
 |                                                                           |
 |   He  likes to start the fight with Blue Shockwave,  which drops your HP  |
 |  to 1.  Counter this right  away with a Curaga.  Now, since you can pick  |
 |  any character for this fight, I'll list 'em up here as well:             |
 |                                                                           |
 |  o Zidane: Stick to physical attacks. Use Elixirs if necessary.           |
 |  o Vivi: Flare is your way to go. If you have Reflectx2 and Auto-Reflect  |
 |          on, bounce them off for 9,999 dmg.                               |
 |  o Dagger: Only use Curaga.                                               |
 |  o Steiner: Shock, Shock and Shock for 9,999 dmg. Use Elixirs if needed.  |
 |  o Freya: Lancer, Dragon's Crest. Use Elixirs if necessary.               |
 |  o Quina: Mighty Guard, Angel's Snack.                                    |
 |  o Eiko: Curaga, Esuna, Phoenix if needed.                                |
 |  o Amarant: Aura all the way, Chakra. Use Elixirs if necessary.           |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Well, this fight is hard. Have Steiner use Shock without giving a crap  |
 |  about Protect or healing. Amarant should Aura the party ASAP, have Eiko  |
 |  stay still until she needs to use Curaga. Zidane should attack over and  |
 |  over.  If needed be, have him use all those Elixirs you've been nabbing  |
 |  through  the whole  game.  Overall,  not  TOO  hard,  but  still,  hard  |
 |  nontheless.                                                              |
 |                                                                           |
 +===========================================================================+

 Well, this is the end of the game. Watch the awesome ending, which is, in my
opinion, one of the best endings of the FF series. Sprint to the kitchen, grab
something to dring, WHATEVER YOU WANT, get a snack, crank up the volume of that
Home Theater you have, close curtains and watch the very awesome ending.

 Well, I hope you enjoyed the game and my walkthrough as much as I did. I spent
over 100+ hours in the making of this guide (game-length wise) and over 4
months in the making. Thanks for reading and playing, and take care y'all!

 |   Strategy: Ok,  the very first boss of the  game and  it's training for  |
 |  you. You have 4 characters and all of them are thieves. Yup,  Zidane is  |
 |  a thief. Anyway, have all characters steal from the Masked Man over and  |
 |  over until  you steal the Mage Masher.  This early  in the game and you  |
 |  already  have Zidane's  second weapon, which totally kicks ass  at this  |
 |  point in the game.                                                       |
 |                            						     |
 |   If you want, steal the rest of his loot (if you didn't steal it before  |
 |  the Mage Masher of course) and attack him normally over and over. Cinna  |
 |  will  probably die  just because he's  so weak.  Don't even worry about  |
 |  healing him or  reviving him if  he's KO.  Just keep on attacking until  |
 |  he's down.                                                               |

 |   Strategy:  Steiner is very easy.  Remember when you fought Baku at the  |
 |  start of the game? Well it's pretty much the same here. Start by having  |
 |  all Blank, Zidane 'n Cinna steal from Steiner until you get the Leather  |
 |  Hat and the Silk Shirt. His attacks deal from 12 to 21 dmg. Just attack  |
 |  him a couple of times and he's done for.                                 |
 |                                                                           |
 |   At  the end  of the  fight,  he'll do a really kickass move  and break  |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  now it's  Zidane,  Garnet,  Vivi and  Marcus vs 3 Pluto  |
 |  Knights.  The attacks go from 18 to 30 dmg., depending on the character  |
 |  who's  attacked.  You can use Vivi's magic and press either L1 or R1 to  |
 |  have Fire target all enemies.  You can do the same with Garnet's  Cure,  |
 |  just in case you need to heal all of your characters.                    |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  this  battle is pretty  much the  same as the first one  |
 |  against Steiner, only that we have Vivi and Garnet with us.  Use Vivi's  |
 |  Fire  over and  over and  if you need to heal,  use Garnet's Cure.  Let  |
 |  Zidane and Marcus attack Steiner over and over.                          |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: In this Boss Battle we're shown Trance. We transform in this  |
 |  form and each character gains sum extra skills. Zidane gains Dyne which  |
 |  changes all of his skills for attacks,  which hit either 1 enemy or all  |
 |  of them. Pretty neat, huh? Against this boss, DO NOT USE Tidal Flame as  |
 |  we would kill Garnet in the process.  				     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Instead, use Free Energy against it.  The boss has 513 HP and it likes  |
 |  to  absorb HP from Garnet.  Make sure to keep an eye on Garnet's HP and  |
 |  whenever it absorbs twice,  quickly heal her back up with a Potion. You  |
 |  can even leave Steiner on standby and just wait to heal her,  which you  |
 |  shouldn't find the need of doing so.				     |

 |   Strategy: This is pretty much the same as the previous fight.  Only in  |
 |  this one, we have Vivi held captive and uses Fire to deal around 80 dmg  |
 |  to the Prison Cage. The boss also absorbs from Vivi, so don't forget to  |
 |  heal him  before he dies.  Since we don't have Trance in this fight,  I  |
 |  recommend  you stealing from  it until you've  stolen both items,  then  |
 |  attacking it nonstop.                                                    |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Just like  with Garnet,  whenever the  Prison Cage  uses Absorb  twice, |
 |  quickly heal Vivi because he won't survive a third Absorb.               |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Pretty easy fight.  His attacks deal around 35 dmg. which is  |
 |  not that high. You should be dealing around 100 dmg. per hit, so just a  |
 |  couple  of hits  and he should be  done for.  Make sure you  steal both  |
 |  items,  as the Iron Sword will come in handy this early in the game. If  |
 |  you ever need to heal up, just toss yourself a Potion. 		     |

 |   Strategy: A good thing to do here is equip both Zidane and Vivi with a  |
 |  Silk Shirt,  while you  equip  Steiner with  the Rubber  Helm.  This is  |
 |  because the Plant Brain uses Thunder and can be quite devastating. With  |
 |  these items equipped, you'll reduce dmg. by half, which is neat-o.       |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Anyway,  as for attacks, he attacks with his right and left tentacles,  |
 |  hitting either the character on the left or the character on the right.  |
 |  His  Thunder spell can either hit one character or the whole bunch.  If  |
 |  the last one happens, have everyone use a Potion on himself to heal up.  |
 |  He also uses Pollen,  which the same  attack the enemy Dendobrium uses.  |
 |  It dmgs.  all characters  and can inflict  Darkness status  on 'em. Not  |
 |  good. 								     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   After you deal around 900 dmg.,  Blank appears.  If you haven't stolen  |
 |  the items  from the boss,  make sure you do so now  that you  have both  |
 |  thieves with you. Throughout the whole battle, make Vivi cast Fire over  |
 |  and over.  Steiner should stick  with Fire Sword,  which should  deal a  |
 |  grand 270+ dmg. on the boss. Let Zidane and Blank steal and afterwards,  |
 |  just use physical attacks. 						     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   If you need to use items, have any character available use it, whether  |
 |  it's Potions, Phoenix Downs or Eye Drops.				     |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: This boss can be kinda  tough because you're alone against 2  |
 |  foes.  Anyway,  let's start  with the  attacks.  Sealion's first.  Wing  |
 |  causes a mere 10+ dmg to Zidane. Blizzard causes around 30 dmg. Tsunami  |
 |  is its  most lethal attack  which causes around 80 dmg.  Blizzara deals  |
 |  around 55+ dmg. in one hit. Black Waltz's Blizzard causes 20- dmg. Fire  |
 |  around 25 dmg. to Zidane.                                                |
 |                                                                           |
 |   This  fight is very  easy at this lv.  At the start,  don't even worry  |
 |  about stealing Black Waltz's items.  Instead,  quickly kill him to make  |
 |  this fight even. Once it's one vs one, start stealing until you get the  |
 |  Mythril Dagger, which teaches Zidane a new ability. I beg of you, steal  |
 |  it before the fight ends. 						     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Since Zidane will  deal over  80 dmg.  per hit and you'll be receiving  |
 |  around 30 dmg. per Sealion's turn, you won't be healing that often, but  |
 |  once the orb in Sealion's chest turns red, it'll release Tsunami, which  |
 |  deals over 80 dmg. It only does the attack when you deal around 400 dmg  |
 |  to it. 								     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Toss a Potion whenever you need to heal and in case you really need it  |
 |  use a  Hi-Potion  to completely heal yourself.  You can  also use  your  |
 |  Trance to quickly finish this battle. 				     |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  this Black Waltz  is very  similar to the previous one,  |
 |  only that this time he's alone and is stronger,  obviously,  but so are  |
 |  we,  no?  His attacks don't  deal that  great of a dmg.  Teleport deals  |
 |  around 60 dmg. to one character. He also uses Fire on one character but  |
 |  nothing to worry about.						     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Once you deal around half dmg., he'll use Fira on all male characters,  |
 |  dealing around  130 dmg. to all of 'em.  This fight is very easy if you  |
 |  know what to do. First of all, have Zidane steal both the Leather Plate  |
 |  and the Steepled Hat. Have Vivi NOT use magic. If you do so Black Waltz  |
 |  will cast the same spell on all characters to deal around 100 dmg.       |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Let Dagger use Cure over and over.  The good thing is that Black Waltz  |
 |  won't target Dagger, but still,  if the rest of the men die,  it's game  |
 |  over ;).  Have Steiner use Magic Sword to deal around 350 dmg.  per hit  |
 |  and if you enter Trance with him, you'll deal around 730 dmg. with just  |
 |  one hit. Neat, right?  This is pretty much it.  It's impossible to lose  |
 |  this fight if you have Dagger use Cure over and over. 		     |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok, this Black Waltz is way stronger than #2,  and something  |
 |  that makes it harder is the fact that Dagger isn't with us. What a pain. |
 |  Yup,  time to  use all  those Potions you've been getting.  Let's start  |
 |  with #3's attacks, shall we? He uses lv.1 Spells like Fire and Blizzard  |
 |  that deals around 70 dmg. to one character. 			     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   His lv.2  Spells deal around 160 dmg.  to one character as well and to  |
 |  the whole group for around 100 dmg. His physical attack deals around 70  |
 |  dmg., which isn't much.						     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   A good thing  is that Vivi enters  Trance automatically  as the battle  |
 |  starts,  which means  you can  double cast  any  spell.  Make sure  and  |
 |  completely sure that Zidane steals all 3 items from #3. Those pieces of  |
 |  equipment are very good at this point. Once he's out of stealable items, |
 |  have Vivi start doublecasting any spell, while Steiner uses Magic Sword, |
 |  obviously.								     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Zidane should stick to physical attacks and  if he enters Trance,  you  |
 |  know what to use, correct?  I like to have Zidane heal using Potions or  |
 |  Hi-Potions if necessary since hes the fastest of the crew (have Steiner  |
 |  use Potions while Zidane steals). 					     |
 |                                                                           |

 |  time  fighting  against  Gizamaluke and  the  reason is  that  I was so  |
 |  underleveled.  I even had a hard time against Black  Waltz #2.  Anyway,  |
 |  after  several  playthroughs,  I now know what it does and  how to play  |
 |  against it. First of all, let me mention its attacks.		     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Crash deals around 200 dmg.  to one character.  It has the spell Water  |
 |  which can target either 1 or all the characters for around 100 dmg. The  |
 |  last attack it has is Silent Voice,  which basically counters any spell  |
 |  you use against it with Silence [not always though]. 		     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   That's all of its attacks. First of all, make sure Zidane steals all 3  |
 |  items from Gizamaluke.  The Ice Staff is rather hard  to get and  it'll  |
 |  take you several  tries before you  actually obtain it,  so use all the  |
 |  potions you need to  stay alive  before killing Gizamaluke.  Before the  |
 |  fight, make sure you equip Zidane with the Butterfly Sword.  	     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Now, as the  battle starts,  make sure to have  Zidane use  Soul Blade  |
 |  while having the Butterfly Sword equipped  to have Gizamaluke Silenced.  |
 |  Now you don't have to  be worrying about the Water spell,  which can be  |
 |  dangerous.  Have  Zidane  steal,  like said  above while Freya  attacks  |
 |  [physical or Lancer], Vivi uses Thunder and Quina uses Potions.  	     |
 |                                                                           |
 |   If  you see  Quina is not  enough  alone to  heal up,  have  Vivi stop  |
 |  casting and start using potions alongside  Quina. Also,  have Vivi cast  |
 |  Slow  on Gizamaluke  to  have  him with  Slow  and Silenced.  Once it's  |
 |  without items to steal, just attack it over and over and use Thunder on  |
 |  it until it dies. 							     |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok, the hotness Beatrix. She cannot be defeated.  Don't even  |
 |  try. What you should try,  however,  is to steal all 3 items of hers...  |
 |  well we actually only need the Chain Plate and the Mythril Sword. Start  |
 |  by having Vivi cast Slow on her,  because this fight has a  time limit,  |
 |  even if you can't see the timer.                                         |

 |   Have Freya use Reis's Wind to  have Regen  on and make sure Zidane has  |
 |  his Bandit  skill on.  Quina should  use Mighty Guard  just to  protect  |
 |  yourself a  little more  of Beatrix's attacks.  Zidane should stick to   |

 |   As for her attacks,  Thunder Slash deals around 225 dmg.  Shock deals   |
 |  around 450 dmg.  to one character.  Her regular attack deals around 100  |
 |  dmg. Stock Break depletes your HP to 1, ending the fight.                |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy:  Remember the Black  Waltz #3 from the Cargo Ship?  Remember  |
 |  how easy he was? He's as easy as back then, or probably easier since we  |
 |  now have Dagger to heal us up.  His lv.1  spells deal around 80 dmg. to  |
 |  one  character,  which isn't  much.  His physical  attack is  what  got  |
 |  somewhat stronger, dealing around 100 dmg. to one character.             |
 |                                                                           |
 |   He has a new spell called Freeze, which Freezes your character, making  |
 |  him unable to move (somewhat like Petrify), but if he/she's attacked on  |
 |  the next turn,  he/she'll  be shattered  in a million  pieces  and will  |
 |  remain out of combat for the rest of the fight.  The good thing is that  |
 |  he doesn't use his lv.2 spells here, nor he attacks Dagger.              |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Have  Dagger do  what she  does best,  Heal.  Use Cure on all whenever  |
 |  needed. Marcus should stick with stealing. Have him steal over and over  |
 |  until you  steal all 3 items  of the BW#3  (useful items for Vivi right  |
 |  there). Steiner should only attack him.  Once Marcus is done  stealing,  |
 |  have him join the attack to finish him off in 2 minutes XD.              |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok, at the level we are, this is a piece of cake. Let Dagger  |
 |  standby at all times and  Cure when needed.  That's all that she should  |
 |  do.  You can probably  have her cast  Protect on Marcus since he has no  |
 |  equipment  or a  really crappy one.  Let Marcus steal that Mythril Fork  |
 |  for Quina. Steal until you do so.                                        |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Steiner  should  focus  on  being  on  standby  until  Marcus robs the  |
 |  Ralvurahva of its Mythril Fork.  Once done so, have him attack over and  |
 |  over with the Blood Sword and/or using Darkside to inflict some serious  |
 |  dmg. on it. Like I said, not hard at all.                                |
 |                                                                           |
 |   It's Blizzara spell deals around 200 dmg.  to one character,  which is  |
 |  not much.  Devil's Kiss  deals around  100 dmg.  and  inflicts  Poison.  |
 |  String deals 140 dmg. and inflicts Slow, which is a pain in the ass.     |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok, the Antlion is pretty simply, although it hits hard. His  |
 |  Counter Horn attack counters  the character that  physically attacks it  |
 |  for around 350 dmg.  Trouble Mucus is  the same attack the Carrion Worm  |
 |  had at the Trunk when you were climbing it.  Deals around 150 dmg.  and  |
 |  inflicts Trouble.  Fira deals around 250 dmg. and Sandstorm is the same  |
 |  as the Sand Golem,  which can inflict Darkness and deals dmg.  to leave  |
 |  you in critical.                                                         |
 |                                                                           |
 |   As for the strategy,  you know what Zidane should do.  We're aiming on  |
 |  that  Gold Helm the Antlion is carrying.  Make  sure you get  it at all  |
 |  cost.  While you're stealing, have Vivi Focus turn after turn and leave  |
 |  the rest  of the  party on  standby to  heal (Freya's  Reis's Wind  and  |
 |  Quina's White Wind).  Once you've stolen the Gold Helm,  have Vivi spam  |
 |  Blizzara over  and over  (which should take only 1 or 2),  Freya should  |
 |  stick  with  Lancer/Reis's  Wind and Quina  will be your healer for the  |
 |  rest of the party.                                                       |
 |                                                                           |
 |   You can also have Vivi use Sleep  (learnt from the Oak Staff  from the  |
 |  Chocograph) on the Antlion while Zidane steals,  if you want of course.  |
 |  Like I said, not a hard battle.                                          |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok, this fight is very easy.  They only have one attack each  |
 |  one and one needs the help of the other one in order to carry out their  |
 |  attack.  They have Meteorite and Light Flare,  dealing 450 and 300 dmg.  |
 |  respectively.  To  avoid  these  attacks,  attack the  one helping  the  |
 |  other... in other words, attack the one that got the power.              |
 |                                                                           |
 |   So, at the start of the fight, have Vivi cast Slow on both of them and  |
 |  have Zidane steal their items. None of the items are of über importance, |
 |  so don't steal them if you so do desire, but that's easy and quick cash. |
 |  Just  keep  on attacking  one of  them (Thorn for  a quicker match) and  |
 |  it'll end in like 3-5 minutes.                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok, this boss is so very easy.  Stab deals around 60 dmg. to  |
 |  one character.  Ultra Sound Wave inflicts Mini status on one character.  |
 |  Thundara deals around 80 dmg.  Earth Power deals around  90 dmg. to all  |
 |  characters once he's reacting to your attack. Once he's crawled up,  he  |
 |  won't attack, but he'll counterattack you with Earth Power.              |

 |   As for the fight, have Zidane steal all 3 items while Vivi hits him to  |
 |  have him curled up.  Dagger should stay on  standby for the time being.  |
 |  Once Zidane steals all 3 items from Ralvuimago, have either him or Vivi  |
 |  cast Blizzara to deal some massive dmg.                                  |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  this is one battle that should  be avoided at all cost.  |
 |  It's pretty annoying and you get nothing in return.  He won't even stay  |
 |  down after defeated. Yes,  it gets back up and start chasing you.  What  |
 |  makes him  annoying are  its attacks.  It has Lv.5 Death,  which  kills  |
 |  immediately  all characters  whose lv.  are multiples of 5  (5, 10, 15,  |
 |  etc). Death kills a character immediately.                               |
 |                                                                           |
 |   He also uses Thundara, which is very rare for it to use.  Its physical  |
 |  attack is also powerful, so be careful. Use any of Vivi's -ra spells to  |
 |  take care of it in one hit.                                              |

 |   Strategy: Now HERE's the  boss of the area.  Lani can be pretty tough.  |
 |  She has -ra spells in her arsenal (including Aera)  and can deal around  |
 |  300 dmg.  to one character,  has Water,  which hits pretty  hard on all  |
 |  characters for around 300 dmg., she can use Scan to "scan" you (duh XD)  |
 |  and she physically attacks you for around 80 dmg. Ok so now what to do?  |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Since Lani will be attacking Dagger for most of the battle,  so a good  |
 |  strategy would be to equip her with Auto-Potion and Chemist to have the  |
 |  Auto-Potion heal 300 HP everytime she's attacked.                        |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Now first of all, have Vivi  cast  Slow  on her.  This  will slow  her  |
 |  attacks on you. So what to do with her magic? Well, since we have Quina  |
 |  let's use her.  If you have Magic Hammer,  which you should,  use it on  |
 |  Lani to reduce her MP. I used it once and dealt 4,555 MP dmg.            |
 |                                                                           |
 |   With  that  done,  she  only  has  physical  attacks,  which are  meh,  |
 |  pathetic.  Now have  Zidane take  his  time and steal the  items,  most  |
 |  importantly,  that  Gladius.  The Coral Sword is wonderful too,  but we  |
 |  don't have Steiner to equip it.                                          |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  Hilgigars is  pretty tough,  and that's because he hits  |
 |  hard.  You could probably  finish him  in a couple of  turns being that  |
 |  Zidane deals around  1,000 dmg.  by now.  Anyway, we'll be wanting that  |
 |  Fairy Flute for Eiko.  Have Dagger use Float  on all the party and also  |
 |  have Dagger cast Silence on Hilgigars.  Hilgigars can use Earthquake to  |
 |  deal  around  300  dmg.  to  all  party.  This  is why we used Float on  |
 |  everyone.                                                                |

 |   Hilgigars can use Curaga to heal over 2,000 HP with one cast,  being a  |
 |  pain in the ass.  He has 3 other physical attacks that deal quite a lot  |
 |  of dmg. (around 400 dmg.),  so make sure to cast Protect on everyone as  |
 |  well  and keep 'em healed.  You have to  white mages/summoners  now, so  |
 |  make sure one casts Cura on all the party and the other uses Ramuh.      |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Vivi  should  cast  Slow  on Hilgigars and  alternate between  Bio and  |
 |  Thundara.  It is known that  the Fairy Flute is  really tough to steal.  |
 |  Try a couple of times. If you simply can't steal it, just ignore it for  |
 |  now. We can get one later.                                               |

 |   Strategy:  Ok,  the Soulcage is  very easy,  although there  are  some  |
 |  things  you should be  aware of.  He's Undead,  meaning  he's  weak  to  |
 |  healing magic...  and to Phoenix Downs  and Life.  You may want to just  |
 |  toss one and end this fight. Do so if you want to.  Otherwise, here are  |
 |  his attacks:  Lv.5  Death.  You know what this does.  Leaf Swirl  deals  |
 |  around 150 dmg. to all characters.                                       |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Shockwave deals around  200 dmg.  to all characters.  If you deal Fire  |
 |  dmg. on Soulcage, he'll set ablaze and  use Fire Blades,  which is Leaf  |
 |  Swirl with Fire-imbued dmg. to deal over 350 dmg.  He also uses Mustard  |
 |  Bomb,  which inflicts  Heat on a character.  Whoever  acts  while being  |
 |  "Heated" will die. That's why I told you to equip Body Temp.             |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Have Vivi cast Slow  on Soulcage and  afterwards,  start spamming Bio,  |
 |  while  Zidane attacks and  Eiko and  Dagger use Cura on it. Easy fight.  |
 |  Faster? Use Life or a Phoenix Down.                                      |

 |   Strategy: Ok, this fight is one on one.  Zidane vs Scarlet.  He's very  |
 |  easy to overcome.  Make sure to  steal the Poison Knuckles so you don't  |
 |  have to buy 'em.  If you don't wanna bother, well,  just attack him. He  |
 |  likes to jump around a lot, just attack him after he jumps,  otherwise,  |
 |  you might miss.  He only  has 1 attack,  which is a normal physical one  |
 |  which deals  around 170 dmg.  Not much.  Use a Hi-Potion if you need to  |
 |  heal. He can also counter your attacks, so keep that in mind.            |

 |   Strategy: Let's start with its attacks. He has Boomerang, which causes  |
 |  around 300 dmg.  to all characters.  Propeller Wind inflicts confuse to  |
 |  all characters (hence the reason you put on Clear Headed). Photon drops  |
 |  your HP all the way to 1. Whirlwind deals around 250 dmg.  and inflicts  |
 |  Float.                                                                   |

 |   These are  all its attacks.  As a matter of fact,  the Ark is a really  |
 |  pushover. Have the characters with Chemist be the healers,  tossing Hi-  |
 |  Potions as needed.  Have Zidane  steal that  Holy Lance  and Elixir and  |
 |  have him attack afterwards.  Have your  other physical  attacker attack  |
 |  over and over (Freya or Steiner).  Freya,  if she has her Dragon's Hair  |
 |  equipped, she'll be doing over 3,000 dmg.                                |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Otherwise,  use Reis's Wind to stay healthy and  attack over and over.  |
 |  You'll be doing over 4,000 dmg. per turn, so only 5 turns  and it'll be  |
 |  down.                                                                    |

 |   Strategy: Okay, Valia Pira.  If you didn't get the Bloodstones through  |
 |  the palace,  the boss  will enhance  its properties  according  to each  |
 |  Bloodstone. It'll enhance DEF, MAG DEF, etc. If you got 'em all,  it'll  |
 |  be easy. Make sure to have Auto-Reflect of cast Carbuncle with Eiko. If  |
 |  you got Quina,  you can use  Magic Hammer to  deplet its MP,  cast  Bad  |
 |  Breath to deal some status ailments on it, Lv.3 Def-less to reduce DEF,  |
 |  Steiner/Freya  should attack nonstop  (Steiner could use  Armor Break a  |
 |  couple of times).                                                        |

 |                                                                           |
 |   Make sure to steal the Golden Hairpin  and  the Demon's Vest.  Anyway,  |
 |  have Quina use Magic Hammer  until you deplete its 1,500+ MP  so he can  |
 |  stop using Bio.  Have Quina  be the  healer and  use White Wind to heal  |
 |  around 900+ HP. Eiko should focus on using Fenrir and Dagger should use  |
 |  Ifrit.  Once Zidane steals all  3 items  (well,  the 2 important ones),  |
 |  have him attack over and over.                                           |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Quina can  also use  Lv.3 Def-less some times to have Zidane deal over  |
 |  2,000 dmg. per hit. Your best bet here, use Eidolons all the way. Don't  |
 |  use Ethers and just attack normally after you run out of MP.             |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  this dude,  Taharka is rather easy.  He has  2 stances.  |
 |  When he's normal and when he closes.  When he closes up,  your physical  |
 |  attacks will do pitiful dmg.  Only way to hurt it is through Magic,  so  |
 |  if you brought Vivi,  Flare/Osmose its ass while it's like  this.  Have  |
 |  Zidane steal while closed.  That Orichalcon is  a very powerful  weapon  |
 |  for Zidane,  so make sure you get it.  You can buy 'em later,  but it's  |
 |  better to get one right now.                                             |
 |                                                                           |
 |   As  for its  attacks,  he  has  Chop,  which deals  750  dmg.  to  one  |
 |  character.  Pff.  Blizzaga deals  around 450 dmg. to all characters and  |
 |  850 dmg. to one character, so if you brought armor against Ice,  that's  |
 |  nice.  Ram deals  350 dmg.  to one character,  but it only uses it when  |
 |  it's closed. These are all its attacks.                                  |
 |                                                                           |
 |   If you want to, you can use Silence on it to forget about Blizzaga. If  |
 |  you want to,  also,  have Steiner  use Armor/Power Break.  If you don't  |
 |  have Vivi in your party,  you can  just use  Freya's Cherry  Blossom to  |
 |  deal around 2,500 dmg. and Eiko's Madeen to deal around 5,300 dmg. Easy  |
 |  boss.                                                                    |

 |   Strategy:  Ok,  this boss  is easy  if you did what I said above.  His  |
 |  attacks  are:  Earthquake deals around  450 dmg.  to  both  characters.  |
 |  Firaga/Thundaga/Blizzaga deals around 400 dmg. to one character. Double  |
 |  Slash deals around 1,200+ dmg. These are all his attacks.                |
 |                                                                           |
 |   You can absorb one attack,  negate 3  more and  you only have to worry  |
 |  about his Double Slash. This battle might seem hard because Quina isn't  |
 |  used  as  much  as  other  characters.  I  never  used  her in previous  |
 |  playthroughs  and I decided to use her in this one.  Man, I was missing  |
 |  out something big. She's awesome, if you have the Blue Magic, of course. |
 |                                                                           |
 |   You  can use Mighty Guard to cast Protect on yourself.  Use Bad Breath  |
 |  to inflict Mini, Darkness and Slow on him to make you nearly invincible. |
 |  Zidane  should deal  around  4,200+ dmg.  per hit, which in 4 hits, the  |
 |  Earth Guardian is downed. Have Quina use White Wind through the battle.  |
 |  You might not even need it XD.                                           |

 |   You can also eat the Earth Guardian to learn Earth Shake... ROFL!  I'm  |
 |  serious. Have Quina eat him while Tranced while he has 15,000 dmg.       |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  Amdusias.  You fought this monster before at Treno.  It  |
 |  resists pretrification,  due to  the fact that it's a boss.  Well,  you  |
 |  start with Zidane alone.  It likes to use Bio,  which poisons and dmgs.  |
 |  you as well. It also has Thundara which it rarely uses and Horn,  which  |
 |  physically dmgs. you.                                                    |

 |   After a turn or two,  Freya and Amarant show up to help you out.  Have  |
 |  Zidane attack normally for around 2,500+ dmg. per hit. Freya should use  |
 |  Reis's  Wind and  Cherry Blossoms  while Amarant  should use Chakra and  |
 |  physically attack.  Not hard,  but can be if you're underleveled and/or  |
 |  unprepared.                                                              |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  we start this battle as Quina and Steiner. At the start  |
 |  of the fight, have Quina cast Mighty Guard and Steiner should use Shock  |
 |  through the battle.  Abadon's  attacks  consists  of  a physical attack  |
 |  targeting  one  character,  another physical attack which targets all 3  |
 |  characters and Thundaga.                                                 |

 |   Make  note that Shock deals  9,999 dmg. to Abadon, and Quina's Twister  |
 |  deals around 7,000+ dmg. After Zidane arrives, just attack and kill it.  |
 |  Nice and easy.                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  the hardest  one of  the bunch.  Attack it normally and  |
 |  it'll be attacking you as well with Earth Shake  and physical  attacks.  |
 |  When it's time for Dagger to enter the fight,  it'll drop  your HP to 1  |
 |  with an attack called Smash,  having Dagger healing you to tiptoe form.  |
 |  Once Dagger arrives, have her spam Curaga and Zidane attacks.            |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  the Silver  Dragon,  Kuja's pet  is here  for the first  |
 |  battle.  Not hard  at all.  This one is  very easy. If you're protected  |
 |  from Wind, then Twister and Aerial Slash won't deal dmg.,  which by the  |
 |  way,  deal around  1,700+ dmg.  the former  and  850+ dmg.  the latter.  |
 |  Shockwave deals around  1,300+ physical dmg.  to all the party and Claw  |
 |  deals around 800 physical dmg. to one character.                         |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Very quick battle.  After Zidane  steals all 3 items,  have him attack  |
 |  normally, Steiner should do the same as well. Have Vivi use Flare/Osmose |
 |  and  Eiko should heal  all with Curaga. Between Zidane and Steiner, you  |
 |  should deal over 6,000 dmg. Flare should do the same.  In 3 turns after  |
 |  stealing,  you're done with it.  Make sure to have your  HP high before  |
 |  the end of the fight.                                                    |

 |   Strategy: Ok, Garland is obviously harder than the Silver Dragon.  His  |
 |  attacks are:  Psychokinesis deals around  950+ physical dmg. Wave deals  |
 |  around  1,100+ physical dmg.  Flare deals around 1,300+ dmg. and he can  |
 |  use Stop, hence why I told you to equip Locomotion.                      |
 |                                                                           |
 |   These are all of his attacks. Silence him if possible to have him stop  |
 |  using Flare.  Inflict Darkness on  him if you  have Dagger  and  you're  |
 |  ready to go.  Remember to steal  the items.  We already have the Battle  |
 |  Boots,  so the Dark Gear and the Ninja Gear are very good for us.  Just  |
 |  like the previous battle, have Zidane attack, Steiner should use  Flare  |
 |  Sword/Shock,  Vivi  should  stick  to  Flare  and  alternate  Eiko with  |
 |  Curaga-all and Holy/Madeen.                                              |

 |   Strategy: Ok, time to fight Kuja. Nice. He has little attacks, and all  |
 |  are magic-based,  so here we go.  Thundaga deals around 1,400+ dmg.  to  |
 |  one  character,  Demi deals  1/4  of dmg. of your total HP.  Flare Star  |
 |  deals your actual level times 35 (lv. x 35). Ultima ends the fight.      |
 |                                                                           |
 |   The good thing about this fight is that you can go  all-out  from  the  |
 |  beginning since we already have all the stealable items of Kuja (if you  |
 |  followed my guide,  you should have  already the Light  Robe).  You can  |
 |  steal  that  extra  Carabini Mail for  either Steiner  or  Freya.  Have  |
 |  Steiner  stick with  Shock for  a guaranteed  9,999 dmg.  Zidane should  |
 |  attack  and/or toss  Ethers. Vivi must use Flare over and over and Eiko  |
 |  should only heal with Curaga.                                            |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  Nova Dragon.  It's an  upgraded  version of  the Silver  |
 |  Dragon. It has the same attacks, plus some of Garland's and Tidal Wave,  |
 |  which  deals  around  800  dmg.  to  all  characters.  Make  sure  your  |
 |  characters  are equipped with Ribbons,  which absorb both the Water and  |
 |  Wind  attacks of  Nova Dragon.  If you do so,  its only  stuck with two  |
 |  attacks  to hit  you,  Psychokinesis  (2,000 dmg. to one) and Shockwave  |
 |  (800+ dmg. to all).                                                      |
 |                                                                           |
 |   As for the party, have Zidane steal that Grand Armor,  since you could  |
 |  only have done one (at least,  I only did one with the leftover armor I  |
 |  had), Eiko should heal all with Curaga over and over. Vivi, if you have  |
 |  Reflectx2 ability equipped, as well as Auto-Reflect,  bounce off Flares  |
 |  off him to deal 9,999 dmg. to Nova.                                      |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Amarant  should use  Aura when the spellcasters' MP gets  low and then  |
 |  spam No Mercy  to deal  around 8,000+ dmg.  with each use. Not a tought  |
 |  fight overall.  Equip Ribbons  and the Octagon Staff to absorb Wind and  |
 |  Water dmg.                                                               |

 |   Strategy: Remember this snake chick? Ya, it's a boss now.  She's quite  |
 |  easy.  Make sure  you  equipped some  Rosetta Rings,  or  something  to  |
 |  absorb/null  Fire.  Also,  make sure  to equip the Body Temp ability to  |
 |  avoid  Mustard  Bomb.  Sword  Quiver  deals  around  900+ dmg.  to  one  |
 |  character. Flame Slash deals around 950+ dmg. to one character.  Firaga  |
 |  deals  around 500+ dmg.  to one character. She can also cast Reflect on  |
 |  herself.                                                                 |

 |   Make sure to have Zidane steal all 3 items,  which are all good.  Eiko  |
 |  should  focus  on  Curaga-ing  all,  Vivi  with  Flare  (Reflectx2  and  |
 |  Auto-Reflect  would  be nice  too)  and MAKE SURE  Amarant uses Aura on  |
 |  everyone.  If  you equipped  Fire  absorbing/nulling items, you'll only  |
 |  have  to deal with her physical attacks. Once you kill her,  she'll use  |
 |  Raining Swords, which deals around 1,500+ dmg. to all characters.        |
 |                                                                           |
 |   This is the reason why you used Aura on all characters.  Whoever dies,  |
 |  automatically revives using Aura's Auto-Life.                            |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Man, Tiamat looks awesome. Anyway,  he has a ton of attacks.  |
 |  Lets  start off  with his  elemental attacks. Jet Fire deals around 600  |
 |  dmg. to all characters, which also inflicts Heat.  Twister deals around  |
 |  1,100 dmg.  to all characters.  Absorb MP  absorbs 80+ MP. Absorb Magic  |
 |  and Absorb Strength lowers your magic and strength and strengthens his.  |
 |  Silent Claw deals 1,200+ dmg. to one character and inflicts Silence. He  |
 |  can also cast Float and use Snort, which ejects a character from battle. |
 |  He only uses this last attack if you attack him while on Float status.   |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Told  ya he had a ton of attacks.  Anyway,  make sure to have equipped  |
 |  Wind and Fire absorbing/nulling armor/accessories.  Body Temp is a must  |
 |  too.  Please have  Vivi and  Eiko their Loudmouth ability equipped. The  |
 |  main  thing  to look  out in  the battle  is the  Absorb Magic/Strength  |
 |  attacks. These lower your stats while it maxes his.  He can kill you in  |
 |  one hit if the battle takes too long.                                    |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Make sure to steal that Grand Helm with Zidane. Just like the previous  |
 |  Grand Armor,  you might  have been able to make only one. Have Vivi use  |
 |  Flare and Flare alone. Don't use items,  don't put him to Sleep,  don't  |
 |  do anything besides Flare. Eiko.. man, if Tiamat sucks up all her Magic  |
 |  stat, her Curaga-all will heal for around 300. That's lame.              |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Once  that happens,  she'll be  useless.  Have her  use items and toss  |
 |  Elixirs if needed. Amarants role is very important. He MUST keep Vivi's  |
 |  and  Eiko's MP  high with Chakra. When they don't need it, have him use  |
 |  No Mercy to deal around 3,000+ dmg. When Eiko is useless,  turn Amarant  |
 |  into  a healer  using Chakra  over and  over while having  the Power Up  |
 |  ability equipped.                                                        |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  Kraken,  although she has  2 aids, she's the easiest of  |
 |  the Guardians.  That's right.  First of all, the attacks. Ink, which is  |
 |  shot from the Tentacles deals around 500+ dmg.  plus inflicts Darkness.  |
 |  Leg  deals around 1,900+ dmg.  Water-gun deals around 800+ dmg.  to one  |
 |  character.  Freeze freezes  you (duh!) and  Waterga deals around 2,000+  |
 |  dmg. to either all your characters or all enemies, healing 'em.          |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Ok, the things she has to steal aren't that good, but steal that Genji  |
 |  Helmet  if you want.  Have Vivi,  Eiko and Amarant target the Tentacles  |
 |  first with Flare,  Holy and  No Mercy. Since you should've equipped the  |
 |  Ribbons  and Octagon Rod,  you should  leave the  Waterga  to  do  your  |
 |  healing.  Ya.  Once the Tentacles are down, and you've stolen the items  |
 |  you want just spam Flare, Holy and No Mercy along with Zidanes physical  |
 |  attack until Kraken goes down.                                           |
 |                                                                           |

 |   Strategy:  Alrighty,  Lich.  We finally get  to him once again. He has  |
 |  several  attacks,  but most  of them  will  fail/miss  if you  prepared  |
 |  beforehand.  Anyway, here they are: Earthquake deals around 1,200+ dmg.  |
 |  to  all  the  party.  Earth Shake  deals  around  1,800+  dmg.  to  all  |
 |  characters.  He can  also cast  Stop, Doom and Death. He also has Venom  |
 |  Powder,  which inflicts  Venom on a  character, hence the reason why we  |
 |  equipped  Antibody.  Death Cutter  deals  around  1,500+  dmg.  to  one  |
 |  character, plus it inflicts Doom. Lv.5 Death kills all characters  with  |
 |  their lv. divisible by 5.                                                |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Make  sure to steal all 3 items with Zidane.  Once you've done so, you  |
 |  can start screwing with him. Make ABSOLUTELY SURE Amarant casts Aura on  |
 |  every character,  this way,  if your killed by Doom or Death,  you  can  |
 |  instantly revive. Have Vivi cast Flare over and over.  Eiko should stay  |
 |  on Standby and wait 'til healing is required.                            |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Also,  once Aura  is  party-casted,  have him use  Chakra or No Mercy.  |
 |  Zidane should stick to physical attacks as per usual. Also, having Eiko  |
 |  cast Holy is awesome. 9,999 dmg. per Holy isn't to shabby,  if I do say  |
 |  so myself.                                                               |

 |   Strategy:  Man,  Deathguise.  Ok.  Man,  it can use Meteor,  which can  |
 |  either dmg. you a lot, or nearly killing you, or kill you.  He likes to  |
 |  use  it in its first turn a lot,  so make sure to heal and revive ASAP.  |
 |  As  for its  other attacks, it casts Death and Lv.5 Death.  He also has  |
 |  Twister,  which deals around  1,200+ dmg. to all characters, Spin which  |
 |  deals  around  1,600+ dmg.  to  all characters and  Demon's Claw, which  |
 |  deals 1,800+ dmg. to one character.                                      |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Just  like  all  previous  bosses,  have  Zidane  steal.  Yes,  steal!  |
 |  Afterwards, attack nonstop.  Vivi should Flare up its ass.  Eiko should  |
 |  Curaga the party every turn,  or right after Spin is executed.  Amarant  |
 |  should Aura the party and then stick to Chakra and No Mercy. If someone  |
 |  dies, quickly Aura that party member and continue.                       |
 |                                                                           |
 |   When Deathguise is "open", it'll uses attacks like Spin,  Demon's Claw  |
 |  and Meteor. When it closes, just like Taharka in Ipsen's Castle,  it'll  |
 |  use  Twister and  Lv.5 Death. Over all,  just a pushover. The only hard  |
 |  thing is Meteor, the beginning of the fight.  If you can overcome that,  |
 |  and you absorb/nullify Wind, you're good to go.                          |

 |   Strategy: Ok,  Kuja is  hard...  but...  yes, he's hard. He has Spells  |
 |  like Flare,  which you should know pretty  damn well by now.  It  deals  |
 |  around  1,500+ dmg.  to one character. Holy, which you know pretty good  |
 |  too,  deals around  1,400+ dmg. to one character. He also casts Reflect  |
 |  on himself  and bounce  off these  2 spells  back at you.  He  also has  |
 |  Curaga, which heals him for around 3,000+ HP. Remember Flare Star? Yes,  |
 |  it still deals your lv x 35 of dmg. to you.                              |
 |                                                                           |
 |   What  to do?  As you can see,  I switched Steiner for Vivi.  This  is,  |
 |  well,  have Steiner use Shock over and over.  Each Shock  is 9,999 dmg.  |
 |  Nice.  Amarant should  Aura the  party ASAP,  leave Eiko  on Standby to  |
 |  Curaga the party or a character who needs it. Zidane for once and only,  |
 |  should only attack and use items if necessary.                           |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Steiner  and Zidane are  the source of dmg.  Eiko  is the  healer  and  |
 |  Amarant  is more  of a  support character  with Aura  and Chakra, since  |
 |  Steiner'll  be using a  lot of his MP.  Having Auto-Regen  here is very  |
 |  helpful, since Kuja is very fast and sometimes he can use 2 Flare Stars  |
 |  in a row. Damn him. Well Steiner and Zidane should both be doing around  |
 |  9,999 dmg., if not THAT dmg. so this fight should be over very quickly.  |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Kuja,  just like  in the  previous battle  with him,  unleashes Ultima  |
 |  after defeated.                                                          |

 |  o Curaga: Heals for around 3,000+ HP to him.                             |
 |  o Thundaga: deals around 500+ dmg. to the whole party.                   |
 |  o Firaga: deals around 500+ dmg. to the whole party.                     |

 |   He  likes to start the fight with Blue Shockwave,  which drops your HP  |
 |  to 1.  Counter this right  away with a Curaga.  Now, since you can pick  |
 |  any character for this fight, I'll list 'em up here as well:             |
 |                                                                           |
 |  o Zidane: Stick to physical attacks. Use Elixirs if necessary.           |
 |  o Vivi: Flare is your way to go. If you have Reflectx2 and Auto-Reflect  |
 |          on, bounce them off for 9,999 dmg.                               |
 |  o Dagger: Only use Curaga.                                               |
 |  o Steiner: Shock, Shock and Shock for 9,999 dmg. Use Elixirs if needed.  |
 |  o Freya: Lancer, Dragon's Crest. Use Elixirs if necessary.               |
 |  o Quina: Mighty Guard, Angel's Snack.                                    |
 |  o Eiko: Curaga, Esuna, Phoenix if needed.                                |
 |  o Amarant: Aura all the way, Chakra. Use Elixirs if necessary.           |
 |                                                                           |
 |   Well, this fight is hard. Have Steiner use Shock without giving a crap  |
 |  about Protect or healing. Amarant should Aura the party ASAP, have Eiko  |
 |  stay still until she needs to use Curaga. Zidane should attack over and  |
 |  over.  If needed be, have him use all those Elixirs you've been nabbing  |
 |  through  the whole  game.  Overall,  not  TOO  hard,  but  still,  hard  |
 |  nontheless.                                                              |
 |                                                                           |

 Well, this is the list of all the sidequests that you can do in the world of
Final Fantasy IX. Note that the Sidequests and Minigames are listed in
different sections.

                 ~-~ ~-~ ~-~  7.1] Moogle Letters  ~-~ ~-~ ~-~

                                    '-----'

 The Moogle Letters is a rather long sidequest. It's long due to the fact that
it takes place from the first Moogle you meet all the way to the last Moogle.
The thing here is that Mognet is failing. Mognet is the Central where all the
letters the Moogles send their letters so they can be delivered to their
buddies.

 The problem is that the mail-delivery boy (or Moogle?) is slacking off work.
Very nice. Now we need to go around the world delivering a ton of letters. Make
note that some letters are missable, meaning that even if you go to that
particular Moogle later in the game, you won't be receiving the letter, so make
sure to nab 'em all.

 The following is a chart where all the Moogles are listed, as well as the
destination of their letter and where that Moogle is. They'll be separated by
disc, ok?! ;)

 Ok, this sidequest is also a minigame, but hey, it's my guide and I wanna put
it here. Anyway, Chocobo Hot & Cold is that, a little game where you dig with
your Chocobo Choco to find treasure burried underground. There are 3 places
where you can dig:

 o Forest
 o Lagoon
 o Sky Garden

 Also, there are things called Chocographs, which shows you a picture of the
World Map and in that specific location, there's a chest with items inside.
Very cool. You can also level up your Beak. The more items you dig, the higher
it goes up and the faster you can dig up treasure. There's also ground
resistance.

 What's that?! Well, the resistance of the ground as you dig. In the Forest,
it's normal, meaning that you'll dig normally. At the Lagoon, you'll be digging
with 1/2 of your normal digging speed (ie. you dig 20 in Forest, you'll dig 10
in Lagoon) and in the Sky Garden, your digging speed will lower to 1/3 (ie. in
Forest you dig 30, Lagoon you'll dig 15 and in Sky Garden 10).

 Here's also the list of items you can dig in the 3 places:

   Stone With Patterns :: 20 pts
                Anklet :: 16 pts
      Chocograph Piece :: 15 pts
            Chocograph :: 10 pts
               200 Gil :: 02 pts
               500 Gil :: 04 pts
             Hi-Potion :: 04 pts (after getting Reef Ability)
                Remedy :: 04 pts
                   Ore :: 02 pts
        Phoenix Pinion :: 02 pts
                50 Gil :: 01 pt
           Annoyntment :: 01 pt
              Antidote :: 01 pt
           Dead Pepper :: 01 pt (after getting Mountain Ability)
           Echo Screen :: 01 pt
             Eye Drops :: 01 pt
         Gysahl Greens :: 01 pt
                Potion :: 01 pt
                  Soft :: 01 pt

 These are all the things you can get. Now, you might be thinking why is this
sidequest so important. Well, besides getting some very good equipment early
on, you need Choco to get the Ultimate Weapons of most of the characters. More
importantly, you need a Golden Choco to fight the toughest of the optional
bosses, Ozma. For more info on this dude, head to his section.

 Now, to finish this section, I'll leave you with a chart with all the
Chocographs, locations, abilities needed, what items you get, etc. Have fun!
