There should be three different files:

Part One: Game Walkthrough
Part Two: Jobs and Abilities
Part Three: Secrets and other Info

This file contains Part Three.

i. Revision History

1.08 -- This is the final revision of this FAQ.  No more information will be added.  I am 
        still taking e-mails, however, and you can still host it.

1.07 -- I have added plenty of stuff, including monster info in the Jobs section, and added to
        the appendix in the Secrets section.  I've also corrected some errors that were
        around.  This will probably be the last update for a while. 

1.06 -- A complete item list (to the best of my knowledge) is in the Secrets section.  I think
        I will work on spell quotes and monster data next.

1.05 -- I am adding a lot more info to the Jobs section, and now have locations for the items
        of the Deep Dungeon.  I am now working on a detailed item list.

1.04 -- Added some Deep Dungeon info, changed my e-mail address, and various other minor

1.03a -- Nothing added to the actual FAQ, but I removed my ICQ# and corrected my e-mail
         address and web page URL.  They have been changed.

1.03 -- Added a section on the Deep Dungeon in the Secrets section.

1.02 -- Added a poaching list, edited the Cloud section.

1.01 -- Corrected a couple of typos (the jobs section is actually legible), added the "Where
        to find these files" section, and the Special Thanks section.

1.00 -- First draft.

ii. Introduction

Welcome.  Over the past couple of years, I have gathered information about Final Fantasy 
Tactics.  That information, my love of the game and a bit of insanity produced what you now 
see here.  

A notice to players: these files contain many "spoilers" of the storyline, so be cautious. 
The walkthrough section is in the order of the game, but the other sections have potential 
spoilers from various portions of the game.  If you have a question about a specific issue, 
don't hesitate to ask me via e-mail.  

If you wish to use any information contained in any of these files for a webpage, publication, 
or any other form of media, you must contact me first.  

iii. Special Thanks

First, I would like to give a big "thank you" to all of my friends, who helped me immensely
with the statistics and many other things.  

Thanks to Sergio Lopez, (bo20@iona.edu) for correcting some of my data in the jobs section.

Thanks to Matt Hobbs (YelseyKing@aol.com) and Kevin McCullough (Bluelion10@aol.com) for
submitting their poaching list.

And, thanks goes to Square, who has made another incredible game!

1. Secret Abilities

There are two abilities than you can't learn through ordinary means.  One is a Guts ability 
for Ramza, another is a Summon spell for any Summoner you have.  To learn these, you must have
the spell cast on you, and if it is Ultima, Ramza must be in the Squire job class.  If it is 
Zodiac, your Summoner must be in the Summoner job class.

1.1. Ultima

You can learn Ultima through two different types of enemies: Assassins and Ultima Demons. 
Learning these spells is very difficult; you really have to force them to use it.  Ramza must
be in the Squire job class, have this spell cast on him, and survive it.

1.1.1. The Assassins

Celia and Lede, whom you fight three times, are the easiest way to learn Ultima.  If you equip
your characters with Black Costumes to prevent their Shadow Stitch attack and Angel Rings to
prevent Stop Bracelet, they will more likely cast Ultima.  This is probably best done on the
roof of Riovanes castle or at the gate of Limberry Castle.

1.1.2. Ultima Demons

You fight Ultima Demons twice, once during the battle with Elmdor, and once at Murond.  Ultima
Demons will very rarely cast Ultima, for they have much better spells.  Typically, the Demons 
won't cast Ultima until you have a character that can be taken out by it.  You will also
likely have to have Ramza walk in on the effect range to learn it.  Check the CT list when
you see an Ultima Demon charging a spell.

1.2. Zodiac

There is only one battle in which you can learn Zodiac, and that is the last battle in the
Deep Dungeon, at "End."  Elidibs casts this spell, and it usually does about 800 damage, so 
you need to take special steps to have your Summoner survive the casting.

An effective way of keeping your Summoner alive is to reduce his/her faith level using the
Mediator's Solution ability.  I'd suggest reducing it to 30 or lower.  It depends on your 
levels of experience.  Of course, it's a lot more difficult to raise Faith (with the
Mediator's Preach ability).  You can also try using the Mind Break Battle Skill, but that may
be more difficult.  Spells such as Shell and Wall can also help.

2. Secret Characters

There are four "secret characters."  Probably the best time to get them is near the end of
Chapter Four.  I have found that the best time to get them is just before you go to Orbonne

2.1. Beowulf, Reis and Worker 8

These characters are all part of one sub-quest in this game.  This sub-quest starts at Goug
Machine City.

You must have Mustadio to do this.  Go to Goug, and you will find that Mustadio's father has 
found a metal sphere.  He sees a symbol on it, and that is your cue to find another Zodiac
Stone.  Now go to Goland.

Go to the bar at Goland and listen to all the rumors.  Now go to Lesalia.

Here you will enter a bar and hear about a monster uprising in the mines at Goland.  Ramza 
overhears that Goland is recruiting people to stop this uprising.  Ramza volunteers for the 
job, and is approached by Beowulf.  If you choose to go with him, he will join your party as
a guest.  Head back to Goland.

You will now fight a string of four battles, all with enemies at or above your level.  

2.1.1. Colliery Underground: Third Floor 

Here you will fight against five Chemists, who all have Mythril Guns.  Try to stick close to
them so they can't snipe you to death with their guns.  Also, watch out, they can use
Hi-Potions, X-Potions and Phoenix Downs, so this could turn out to be a long battle.

2.1.2. Colliery Underground: Second Floor

The Chemist here is equipped with the aptly-named Blaze Gun, and there are two Behemoths here.
However, the two thieves should be the least of your worries.  If you are at high levels, the
Behemoths will be too.  At high level, they can take out a weak character in one hit, so stay
far from them.  A King Behemoth is hiding behind the Thief in the front, who is close, so be

2.1.3. Colliery Underground: First Floor

The two Chemists have the regular Mythril Guns now, so they aren't much of a threat.  The
Blue Dragons are your biggest worry.  Use Orlandu at long range to defeat them.  The Uribo
doesn't seem to do anything at all in this battle, so ignore it until the very end, or use a 
Mediator to Invite it, to breed and poach later.

2.1.4. Underground Passage in Goland

Your objective here is to save the Holy Dragon Reis, who seems quite capable of handling 
herself.  With Orlandu and Ramza, you should not have any trouble with the Archaic Demon and 
the Ochus.  The Plagues have the ability to petrify your characters, so you may want to equip
Jade Armlets beforehand.  You receive a Zodiac Stone from Beowulf and Reis after this battle,
and they will now join as members.  Now go back to Goug.

When you return, the Zodiac Stone will activate the sphere, and Worker 8 will activate.  It 
will join your party now.  Mustadio's father will discover another machine that requires
another Zodiac Stone, so head to Zeltennia.

As in Goland, go to the bar and listen to new rumors.  Nelveska Temple will appear on the map
when you leave the bar.

Here you will fight against Worker 7, a Steel Giant just like Worker 8.  However, the Hyudras 
and the Cocatoris make this battle rather difficult, so focus just on Worker 7.  Rememeber,
since Worker 7 has Innocent on him at all times (just like Worker 8), he is not affected by
magic.  After defeating Worker 7, you will receive his Zodiac Stone.

NOTE:  As has been rumored, there is some incredibly good equipment on top of the pillars in
the front of the level.  I have confirmed this twice.  To get on top of the pillars, you must
put a monster directly adjacent to one of them.  I don't know if you've noticed, but you can
walk over and jump off of monsters.  Put your Steel Giant (or another monster) in your party,
park it next to the pillar, and have Rafa (with Move-Find Item equipped) get the items on top
of the pillars.  There is a catch, however.  The lower the Brave level of the searching
character, the more likely you are to get a good item.  You will either find a normal Javelin,
or a silver Javelin, on one of the pillars, and a normal Escutcheon or a golden Escutcheon on
the other.  Make sure you get the unique items before you finish the level.  If you get one
of the normal items, reset the game, as you won't be able to return.

2.2. Cloud

This portion of the sub-quest will now allow you to get Cloud.  I believe that you can only
get him after you have gotten all the other secret characters, and after you have fought the
battle with Dycedarg at Igros.  First go to Goug, then to Zarghidas Trade City.

If you haven't already, go here.  A girl will approach you in the town and sell you a flower. 
Buy it, then go to Goug.

The machine that was found will now activate and deposit Cloud Strife into your reality.  But,
you don't have him yet, as he runs off.  He went to Zarghidas, go follow him.

2.2.1. Zarghidas Trade City

You will be attacked here, but it is not a problem at all.  Beware, though, Cloud is not
equipped with a weapon.  Cloud will join your party as a member after this battle, and, to get
his Materia Blade, go to Bervenia Volcano.

2.2.2. Bervenia Volcano

Equip a character with the Move-Find Item ability, and go to the top of the spire in this
level.  You will find the Materia Blade there, and with this
Materia Blade, Cloud can use his Limit abilities.

3. Deep Dungeon

The Deep Dungeon is a set of 10 different levels that is shrouded in total darkness.  To get 
here, go to Warjilis Trade City (near Lionel Castle) during chapter four.  You should be 
immediately taken to a scene in a bar there where some thieves talk about the Deep Dungeon. 
Then it will appear on the map.

3.1. Overview

Inside the Deep Dungeon is a bunch of very tough enemies.  You will see monsters like Dragons
and Hyudras that you don't see in many other places: beware.  However, the best part about the
Deep Dungeon is that you will find great equipment that you can't find anywhere else. 

To advance deeper into the Deep Dungeon, you need to have one character find the way further. 
It's on a single square in the level, and is often far (but not always) from the starting
point.  Just have your characters move square by square through the level until one of them
reports that they have found it.  No special abilities need to be equipped.  

To make this job easier, I would suggest having a Wizard with Math Skill come with you,
and he/she should use Frog and Sleep on at least one of the enemies.  Do this because if you
kill all of the enemies, you exit without advancing.  Try to kill the others because Crystals
illuminate the cave, which makes it a lot easier.  

One last thing: the square that the exit is on changes with new games, so don't expect to find
it in the same spot the second time through.

3.2. Items

There are four items on each level in the Deep Dungeon.  The items get better as you progress,
but there are definitely good ones on the first few levels.  To get the items, you have a few

First, you must have the Chemist ability Move-Find Item equipped on the character picking up 
the items.  Any character without this ability that stops on a square containing a item sets
off a trap.  For each item you can find, you have a chance of finding that good item or a 
Phoenix Down.  Your chances of finding the good item are greater when your Brave level is
low.  So, I would suggest using Rafa or another character with a low Brave level, and
lowering his/her Brave level down to 10 before they go hunting for items.  Remember that if 
your character's Brave level goes down below 10, that character will turn into a Chicken and
you will lose control of him/her.  You'll have to wait until the character slowly gains
bravery back to look for items.

I have the locations of all the items in the Deep Dungeon in the following sections.  However,
since a graphic representation is rather impossible, I am using a coordinate system to give
you the location of the units.  Here is how it works:

The square from which the system starts at is called (0,0), or the origin.  I will tell you
this point on the map, and by moving the cursor a certain amount of spaces along the walls,
you can locate the position of the item.  The first digit of the code is along the wall
facing the backs of your characters (from their starting point).  The second digit is along
the wall facing the sides of your characters.  I shall demonstrate with a crude diagram 
representing the items in END:

  9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0

(X)- - 1 - 2 - - - - O  
   | - |   |         |  1          0: Origin (0,0)
   |   3 - 4         |  2          S: General starting point for your characters (2,3)
   | - |         S   |  3          1: Chirijiraden (7,0)
    | - |            |  4          2: Elixir (5,0)
    |   |            |  5          3: Elixir (7,2)
    | - |  | - |     |  6          4: Chaos Blade (5,2)
      | - ||   |     |  7
      |   || - |     |  8     This is a pretty bad diagram, but basically, the ground curves 
      | - |          |  9     in a crescent shape, and descends from the plateau where the 
                    (Y)       items are down to the starting point.  So, according to this
                              diagram, the origin is behind and to the right of the starting
                              point.  Also, the wall labeled "X" is the wall facing the backs
of your characters, while the wall labeled "Y" is the wall facing the sides of your
characters.  Hopefully, if you can locate the origin, you'll be able to see which wall is X
and which is Y, and determine the locations of the items.  All of the locations are given in 
the form (X,Y), and X is always behind your characters.  Make sure you are seeing the faces
of your characters before you try to determine which wall is which.  Also, the walls are
based on the directions your characters are facing when they start the level.  Also, keep in
mind that the origin is always in a corner.

3.2.1. NOGIAS

The origin in this level is behind your characters, and to the right.  It is at 23 height. 

Blaze Gun:        (7,7)
Glacier Gun:      (0,9)
Elixir:           (3,9)
Kiyomori:         (5,0)

You may have acquired a Blaze Gun before (from Balk in the Bed Desert), but not the Glacier
Gun.  The Kiyomori is just an ordinary Katana that can be bought anywhere.


The origin in this level is again behind and to the right of your characters.  It is at 12

Elixir:           (6,1)
Elixir:           (4,11)
Blood Sword:      (2,4)
Save the Queen:   (8,10)

These items are not unique, so they are not as important as in the other levels.

3.3.3. DELTA

The origin in this level is back and to the right.  It is at 1 height.

Elixir:           (4,12)
Elixir:           (7,0)
Yoichi Bow:       (2,6)
Mace of Zeus:     (8,9)

The Yoichi Bow is a strong bow that may also be found on high level Archers.  The Mace of Zeus
is perhaps the best staff in the game.  


The origin is behind and to the left of your characters.  It is at 9 height.

Kaiser Plate:     (10,0)
Faith Rod:        (11,2)
Fairy Harp:       (10,1)
Elixir:           (3,8)

The Kaiser Plate is a very good shield, and the Faith Rod is a rod that gives the status
effect Faith to its wielder, and randomly adds Faith to whomever it strikes.

3.3.5. MLAPAN

The origin is behind and to the right of your characters.  It is at 11 height.

Elixir:           (6,11)
Elixir:           (0,0)
Iga Knife:        (6,0)
Excalibur:        (4,3)

The Iga Knife is a Ninja Sword that is better than the ones you can buy.  I'm sure you are 
familiar with Excalibur. ^_^

3.3.6. TIGER

The origin is behind and to the right of your characters.  It is at 5 height.  All of the
items here are very close to your starting point.

Elixir            (0,0)
Secret Clothes    (1,0)
Cursed Ring       (1,1)
Blast Gun         (0,1)

The Secret Clothes is a Ninja suit that provides little protection, but it makes its wearer 
Invisible for a short time.  The Blast Gun, the best gun, shoots Lightning elemental bullets.

3.3.7. BRIDGE

The origin is again behind and to the right of your characters.  It is at 3 height.  All of 
these items are on a straight line, at X = 4.

Elixir            (4,10)
Elixir            (4,0)
Koga Knife        (4,2)
Sage Staff        (4,4)

The Koga Knife is another Ninja knife, while the Sage Staff is simply a bad staff.  It's only
asset is a higher attack power than other staves.

3.3.8. VOYAGE

The origin is behind and to the left of your characters.  It is at 3 height.  All of the items
are on the lower level, in the corners of the cliff. 

Elixir            (2,3)
Perseus Bow       (8,7)
Robe of Lords     (6,6)
Ragnarok          (3,5)

The Perseus Bow is a very strong bow, the best there is.  The Robe of Lords provides excellent
HP and MP bonuses, along with Protect and Shell when it is equipped.  The Ragnarok casts Shell
on its user.  It is also slightly stronger than the Excalibur, but not necessarily better.

3.3.9. HORROR

The origin is behind and to the right of your characters.  It is at 0 height.

Elixir            (10,6)
Grand Helmet      (3,5)
Maximillian       (9,9)
Venetian Shield   (3,4)

The armor here is the best in the game, even better than the Genji equipment.  Be sure to get it

3.3.10. END

The origin is behind and to the right of your characters, at zero height.  This level is shaped
in a crescent form.  You start at the low end, and the items are at the high end--at the four 
corners of the highest plateau.

Elixir            (7,2)
Elixir            (5,0)
Chirijiraden      (7,0)
Chaos Blade       (5,2)

The Chirijiraden is a very strong Katana, and the Chaos Blade is a unbelievably powerful blade.
It has an attack power of 40, casts Regen on the user, and adds Petrify (!).  I would strongly
advise against trying for these items in the battle with Elidibs; you can go back after you
defeat him.

3.3. Elidibs 

Elidibs is another Zodiac monster.  He uses the Zodiac Stone Serpentarius to change into a
very powerful Summoner.  He is on the top of the crescent-shaped 10th floor, END.  He has a
very weak physical attack, but has the Summon spell Zodiac, which will most likely kill any of
your characters, and it has a huge effect range.  Keep your characters spread out, and watch 
for it.  He also has a few Byblos on the steps leading to him which you must fight through.  

He also has the spell Poison Frog, which affects you just like it sounds; it can be a pain, 
especially when trying to get Zodiac.  Another attack he has is called Midgar Swarm, which
will probably do about 300 damage to anyone in the target area.

You should probably use Orlandu to take out the Byblos.  They have the same attacks that they
did in the battle at Limberry Castle, including that annoying one that turns your guys into
Frogs.  They are really a pushover, though.  The challenge is Elidibs himself, and getting 
Zodiac.  I went into a strategy for Zodiac above, in section 2.2.   

A Byblos joins your party for some reason in this battle.  His Difference attack will more 
than likely do tremendous damage to Elidibs, so keep him around when you need to kill him.

4. Appendix

This will be the future home of all of the details of Final Fantasy Tactics.  Currently, it
contains the poaching list, item lists, and quotes.

4.1. Poaching List

I've noticed that when trying to obtain items through poaching, it's easiest to recruit 1st 
level monsters (like Dragons, Bull Demons, Hyudras), and then breed them to get higher level 
monsters.  It's easier this way, because if you keep one around, you can always breed more 3rd 
levels, and you won't have to fight them.  However, if you can get higher level monsters, it
will save you some time.  To get the items, put the monsters in battle, whack them with
someone with Secret Hunt, and hope they don't counter attack.

In case you don't know, the method of getting these items is to equip a character with the 
Thief support ability Secret Hunt, and kill a monster (friendly or otherwise) with a normal
attack.  This means that Orlandu's sword skills will not do it.  A Fur Shop (found in trade
cities) will refine an item from the monster you poached.  There, you will either buy a commonly
refined item, or perhaps a rare item from that monster.  Two different items can be refined 
from a monster.  Note that some of the rare items can't be found elsewhere.

This list was submitted via e-mail by Matt Hobbs and Kevin McCullough.  They also informed me
that some of the information may not be correct, so if you see an error, e-mail me and let me
