Original thought: Academia 400 can go die in a fire

This has to be the worst area in any FF game.
#2ruby_saucePosted 1/25/2013 6:00:23 PM
HELL, YES.

I dont even want to go back there to turn in the maps Ive been exploring till 100%. That area is completely terrible.

Then just go to the other version of Academia 400. The one without any monsters.

^You need to be in the awful version to actually turn the maps in, though.

Iirc there is a high encounter rate?
Well, in Academia 500 the encounter rate is crazy high.
Anyway, sure you can map in the other Academia, but you still need to beat that monster shambling cie'th. I ran into him 1st time I got to 400... no hope. But when I went back for the bestiary, he was a noob.

I agree. That map is terrible. The useless constant random encounters is what makes it so terrible. I hated going back there to capture that Orion monster for infusion. Make sure you save before fighting him.

P.S. I'm not sure if the name of the monster is Orion. Been awhile since I played.

There can be only one.

^ Fencer.

Yes. Catching Fencer was a pain. I came back after, closed the gate, found one, saved, and just kept reloading until I got it. Then I just returned to the HC and never looked back.

I actually like Academia 400F. Just be sure to be in the good half of it - where no more useless Ghouls spawn. For that point in the game, you get a lot of CP from the non-Ghoul Cie'th.

Also, the drop rate for Tears items and Orb items is insanely high - I maxed both to 99 in two trips. Nice money source for that point in the game, again.
