Missable Djinns

Take a look at this sticky for example: The opening post is incorrect in stating that Crystal Dragon is missable - this is the sort of thing you can often expect from a FAQ, ESPECIALLY this soon after a game's release, but because this is an interactive forum you can find this information corrected in this very same topic.

It is missable... I missed it because I didn't think there was a way to get past the corpses...

While I am a little ticked off that i missed a lot of stuff, this could be much, much worse in terms of points of no return. Like FFVIII worse.

To be fair, FF8's PONR was at a disk break and right before a major event.

The ones in this game, especially the first, catch you COMPLETELY unaware that you will never be able to go back to old areas (save for a warnign before the 2nd).

Yeah this topic isn't 100% accurate. It should have one additional entry.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- MISSABLES BEFORE POINT OF NO RETURN 1.5
- PONR: Take the Cloud Passage
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Venus-Brick-Harapa

Between the Harapa ruins event and the cloud passage is the ONLY window to get this djinn.


This really needs to be added, I too missed Brick.

The missable Djinn and Summon tablets are the bolt complaint I have with this game. I have already missed at least 3 summons and 4 Djinn. I just got the boat and I'm pretty sure I can't go back. This is my first play through though so I don't mind missing these things but in future playthroughs I will have to double check. I don't know why this game has missable Djinn and Summons but the previous games didn't. Dies the game want a heavier emphasis on exploring? I do like to explore but I also like the story to be moving at a good pace but because of that I've now payed the price. So far I'm enjoying the game but I am quite annoyed. Can't wait till I finish it.

I've forgotten where in Harapa you find Brick by now, but you CAN get back inside after the Grave Eclipse. Why can't you get him then?

The big door is shut, you need to be on the far side of the big door to access the growth vine. You also need to cast cold snap on a puddle inside town. You must leave town (thus resetting the puddle) in order to access the vine after freezing the puddle.
