    2) WHAT IS AN AUCTION                                             Fauction
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In FFTA2, instead of gaining Clan Territory by doing missions like 
    in the first game, you participate in auctions once a year. In those 
    auctions, you are given tokens, and you place those tokens up in 
    real-time, like an auction. At the end, whoever has the highest bid 
    gains the area. There are also prizes that you earn for reaching 
    certain goals, such as a number of auctions you participate in, 
    or the number of wins. For more information on those goals and 
    the prizes you get, go to Part 4, Auction Goals & Prizes. Like before, 
    when you gain control of an area, you gain some benefits. 
    Here are the benefits you can earn:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -You will randomly be given an item from a shop from an area you own.
    
    -A rival clan will fight you, remarking on how you own the area, 
    in some way or another.
    
    -You will earn discounts on LOCAL quest fees and shop items.
    (Only for areas with Pubs and Shops)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Also, if you win all of the auctions in an area, and become the 
    "Champions for life", you will auction for items, not territory, because 
    you permanently own the territories.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3) HOW DO YOU PLAY?                                          Fplay
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    First, you start off by waiting for "Auctioning Season", which happens to be 
    the first month of every year. Go to any town that has an auctioning house 
    (Camoa, Grazton, etc.) and go on in. Go ahead and say you want to Enter, 
    which will cost you 20 CP. If you have already unlocked the Token Shop, you can
    use it after entering. The prices for the Token Shop are as follows-
    ----------------------------
    1 Coin Token- 5 CP
    2 Coin Token- 10 CP
    3 Coin Token- 20 CP
    5 Coin Token- 70 CP (!)
    ----------------------------
    If, somehow, you have not yet unlocked the prizes for getting a certain # of 
    Tokens, but you have unlocked the shop, the shop is a good way to meet the 
    goal quickly. Now that you have bought your Tokens, start the auction.
    You'll have the option before each auction for an area to skip it, but this is 
    pointless, and you may as well just pass every turn if you don't want to 
    auction for that area, just to boost your PASS record. Now that you've 
    started auctioning, you'd better learn how to play. The game tells you 
    briefly how to auction, but there is much more behind the scenes than 
    what you're told. First, I'll go over the basics...
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    - Each turn, press the button for the number of coins you want to wager.
    At the end of that turn, they will be added to your total for that round.
    
    - Every auction is divided into turns, which go at different speeds and are 
    differently spaced. The length of time for each turn can be anywhere from 
    painstakingly long, to just enough time to push the button.
    
    - Obviously, you compete against rival clans for the most amount of coins 
    in a round to win the area.
    
    - If you are in a position indicated by a BONUS marker at the end of a round, 
    (eg. BONUS 4th), you will gain a 5-coin Token at the end of that turn.
    
    - The reigning champion of an area (whoever had it before the auction) 
    will recieve a 1-coin head start at the start of the auction.
    
    - There is a 30-coin limit for each round. If anyone reaches this goal, 
    the round ends and they are declared the victor.
    
    - If there is a tie for 1st, the reigning champion 
    (whoever had the title last time) will be declared the winner.
    
    - If there is a tie for 1st and neither of them are the reigning champs, 
    the winner will be random.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Well, that's all there is to it, on the top. This FAQ will tell you all the 
    details of how to win at every auction, since there is much more to 
    mastering auctions than simply putting all of your 3 and 5 coin Tokens 
    out whenever possible.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4) READING THEIR NEXT MOVE                                Fmove
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There's no way you're going to scrape by and become Champion For Life if you 
    don't conserve your tokens by barely beating your foes at each auction, and the 
    only way to do that is to read their next move.
    
    This part is actually quite simple, as there are merely six different gestures
    to watch out for. (Look for the gestures made by the clan reps. from other 
    clans, in case that wasn't clear)
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - A speech bubble over their heads means that they're still talking to other 
    clan members, and don't know what to do yet. This is very frusterating 
    during quick turns, as this pose can last for a long time.
    
    - When they shake their heads and look down, they're going to pass the turn. 
    Normally, they don't do this unless they're going for a bonus, or they simply 
    don't have enough tokens.
    
    - If they strike a "Stare-Down" pose, by spreading their legs apart and 
    staring forwards, they are going to use 1 coin this turn.
    
    - If they walk in place, they are going to use 2 coins.
    
    - If they punch at the air aggressively, they are going to use 3 coins.
    
    - If they raise their hands over their heads and a ! appears over their head, 
    they are going to use 5 coins. This one is the easiest to spot, and you'd 
    better watch out for it. Luckily, only one clan is able to do this WITHOUT 
    getting a bonus.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now, what do you do with this? In the beginning, it's going to be fairly hard 
    (especially in larger auctions) to read everyone's movements at once. 
    Instead, wait for a few turns, (I don't mean PASS, but just follow your 
    instincts and do what seems smart) and wait for there to be one or two 
    opponents that clearly want to win. In that case, try to start off getting 
    one coin ahead of them, then mimic their every move. This way,
    you can scrape by with using just the amount you need. 
    While that was just a basic strategy, later on, I'll update this FAQ an 
    include much more in-depth strategies.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5) AUCTION GOALS AND PRIZES                     Fprizes
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After a set of auctions, a record of the following catagories will be updated:
    - Games Played
    - Bonuses Earned
    - 1st Place Finishes
    - 2nd Place Finishes
    - 3rd Place Finishes
    - 1 Token Coins Obtained
    - 2 Token Coins Obtained
    - 3 Token Coins Obtained
    - 5 Token Coins Obtained
    - Turns Passed
    
    You will gain prizes for "Mastering" a  catagory. To master it, you must reach 
    a certain number for them. The bar next to the catagory will fill up 
    accordingly, and once if fills all the way up, a star will appear next 
    to it, and it will be mastered.
    
    Here is a list of the number you need to match the catagories.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Champions for Life- You will permenantly gain control of the areas for 
    that auction house. Instead of auctioning for area, you will auction for 
    useful items.
    !!! You cannot earn this in your first Auction. !!!
    
    Token Shop opens- You will be able to access the token shop before auctions. 
    For token prices, go to the beginning of Part 3 of this FAQ.
    
    1-coin Tokens + - At the start of an auction, you have an extra 1-coin token.
    
    2-coin Tokens + - At the start of an auction, you have an extra 2-coin token.
    
    3-coin Tokens + - At the start of an auction, you have an extra 3-coin token.
    
    5-coin Tokens + - At the start of an auction, you have a 5-coin token. (Hehehe)
    
    Elixer- Item that fully restores target's HP and MP.
    
    10,000 Gil- Duh. 10k gil.
    
    Ribbon - It's not an auction related item, but oh well. In case you don't know,
    a Ribbon is a Female-only item (Adelle, Gria or Viera, with the exception of 
    a unit with ribbon-bearer) that blocks ALL Debuffs.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This section is composed of the full, in-depth details of each auction.
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    A NOTE ON AUCTIONS!!!
    
    While most of the time, auctions follow the EXACT layout described here,
    sometimes, the bonuses are completely random. HOWEVER! This normally happens
    with only 1-3 auctions per season (as in, individual auctions, not a whole set)
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This includes:
    
    - How many tokens you start off with (not including the token + bonuses)
    
    - Which clans you will face
    
    - Most determined rival clan (which clan will normally come in 1st)
    
    - Complete details of each turn in an auction, including length and bonuses
    
    - A brief description of what you should do in that auction
    
    WAIT! First, before you go on, I must explain something quickly.
    
    When describing the turns in an auction, for the length, I will describe them
    as Very Short, Short, Medium, Long, and Very Long.
    
    TOO SHORT = 1/2 second
    Very Short = 1 second
    Short = 1.5 seconds
    Medium = 2 seconds
    Long = 3 seconds
    Very Long = 4 seconds
    
    ___________________________________________________________
    
    Auction House --- Camoa
    
    Starting Tokens --- |6| 1-Tokens, |5| 2-Tokens, |6| 3-Tokens.
    
    Rival Clans --- Camoa Braves, House Minymum, House Eden.
    
    Auction 1 --- Camoa
    Most Determined --- Camoa Braves
    - Turn 1 -
    Very Long, No Bonuses
    - Turn 2 -
    Very Long, No Bonuses
    - Turn 3 -
    Very Long, No Bonuses
    - Turn 4 -
    Very Long, No Bonuses
    - Turn 5 -
    Very Long, No Bonuses
    - Turn 6 -
    Very Long, No Bonuses
    
    Stategy --- Your very first auction, and the easiest. It's easy to read
    the movements of the Camoa Brave since you have so much time each turn,
    so try to stay just one ahead of them, to conserve tokens for later.
    
    Auction 2 --- Targ Wood
    Most Determined --- House Minymum / Eden
    - Turn 1 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 2 -
    Long, 1st Place Bonus
    - Turn 3 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 4 -
    Long, No Bonus
    
    Stategy --- Not much harder than the first one. Just get a lead in the
    beginning at all costs, and stick with it. The bonus is well worth it!
    
    Auction 3 --- Baptiste Hill
    Most Determined --- Camoa Braves
    - Turn 1 -
    Long, 3rd Place Bonus
    - Turn 2 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 3 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 4 -
    Long, 2nd Place Bonus
    - Turn 5 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 6 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 7 -
    Long, No Bonus
    
    Strategy --- That 3rd place bonus at the beginning may seem nice, but it's hard
    to get. read the movements right, and you may just get it. Go for the 2nd place
    bonus, since it's easier to get. Go all out after it, since this is already the
    last auction in this house.
    
    ___________________________________________________________
    
    Auction House --- Graszton
    
    Starting Tokens --- |10| 1-Tokens, |6| 2-Tokens, |6| 3-Tokens.
    
    Rival Clans --- All Loar Side except Air Bandits
    
    Auction 1 --- Graszton
    Most Determined --- Grazton Shipyard
    - Turn 1 -
    Very Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 2 -
    Very Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 3 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 4 -
    Medium, No Bonus
    - Turn 5 -
    Medium, No Bonus
    - Turn 6 -
    Short, No Bonus
    
    Strategy --- The only thing special about this one is the introduction of
    varying turn lengths. Just keep ahead of the best clan, and it'll be easy.
    
    Auction 2 --- The Bisga Greens
    Most Determined --- ANY AND ALL/ Culinary Crusade
    - Turn 1 -
    Very Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 2 -
    Very Long, 2nd Place Bonus
    - Turn 3 -
    Very Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 4 -
    Very Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 5 -
    Very Long, 2nd Place Bonus
    - Turn 6 -
    Very Long, No Bonus
    
    Strategy --- This one is nice and long, so you can easily read movements.
    Also, both the bonuses are for 2nd place, which means you should be able to get
    them both. If you aren't too sure of your abilites yet, at least get one.
    
    Auction 3 --- The Aldanna Range
    Most Determined --- ANY AND ALL/ Culinary Crusade
    - Turn 1 -
    Medium, 3rd Place Bonus
    - Turn 2 -
    Medium, 2nd Place Bonus
    - Turn 3 -
    Medium, 1st Place Bonus
    
    Strategy --- This one is screaming for you to get all the bonuses. Don't.
    This is an easy one to win, because the other clans are obsessing over the
    3rd and 2nd place bonuses. Win this one, and grab the 1st Place bonus. It'll be
    nice to have for the last auction.
    
    Auction 4 --- Zedlei Forest
    Most Determined --- 
    - Turn 1 -
    Medium, No Bonus
    - Turn 2 -
    Medium, 4th Place Bonus
    - Turn 3 -
    Medium, No Bonus
    - Turn 4 -
    Medium, 1st Place Bonus
    - Turn 5 -
    Short, No Bonus
    - Turn 6 -
    Short, No Bonus
    - Turn 7 -
    Short, No Bonus
    
    Strategy --- Come on, this is the last auction! Go all out! The 1st place bonus
    should give you a little push, so just keep on using your best tokens!
    
    ___________________________________________________________
    
    Auction House --- Moorabella
    
    Starting Tokens --- |9| 1-Tokens, |10| 2-Tokens, |8| 3-Tokens.
    
    Rival Clans --- ANY AND ALL (Loar Side)
    
    
    Auction 1 --- Moorabella
    Most Determined --- Culinary Crusade
    - Turn 1 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 2 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 3 -
    Long, 5th Place Bonus
    - Turn 4 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 5 -
    Long, 4th Place Bonus
    - Turn 6 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 7 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 8 -
    Long, 2nd Place Bonus
    
    Strategy --- Ugh. The Sky Bandits and Culinary Crusade will have you spending
    many, MANY of your tokens on this one. If you can, USE THE TOKEN SHOP. In fact,
    don't even try becoming Champions for Life until you can buy a few extra
    5-Tokens. Also, IGNORE THE BONUSES.
    
    Auction 2 --- The Galerria Deep
    Most Determined --- House Prost (Wow, not Culinary Crusade!)
    - Turn 1 -
    Long, No Bonus
    - Turn 2 -
    Medium, No Bonus
    - Turn 3 -
    Medium, 2nd Place Bonus
    - Turn 4 -
    Short, No Bonus
    - Turn 5 -
    Short, 4th Place Bonus
    
    Strategy --- Go for the 2nd Place bonus. Then, use that boost at the last two
    turns, because you're going to need it, since most of the other clans got that
    4th Place Bonus, and will probably use it in the next round, meaning
    it's going to be VERY difficult.
    
    Auction 3 --- The Rupie Mountains
    Most Determined --- Air Bandits/ Culinary Crusade
    - Turn 1 -
    Medium, No Bonus
    - Turn 2 -
    Medium, No Bonus
    - Turn 3 -
    Short, No Bonus
    - Turn 4 -
    Short, 3rd Place Bonus
    - Turn 5 -
    Very Short, No Bonus
    - Turn 6 -
    TOO SHORT, No Bonus
    
    Strategy --- This one gets shorter, and shorter and shorter... Luckily, the
    other clans usually don't use more than 10 tokens if you can get a big lead.
    Use three 3-Tokens at the beginning, then try to just use 2 and 1 Tokens
    until the end.
    
    Auction 4 --- The Ruins of Delgantua
    Most Determined --- Culinary Crusade
    - Turn 1 -
    Medium, No Bonus
    - Turn 2 -
    Medium, No Bonus
    - Turn 3 -
    Medium, No Bonus
    - Turn 4 -
    Medium, No Bonus
    - Turn 5 -

    Strategy --- This one is simple. It's the last auction, and no bonuses.
    GO ALL OUT. By now, most of the other clans have next to no tokens left.

    Strategy --- AGH! This one is a major pain! The other clans go all out, which
    means that you have to, too. Still, if you have any 5-Tokens, save them. For
    some odd reason, House Eden does absolutely nothing (Usually) in this one.

    Strategy --- This one is VERY fast paced. Still, make sure you get the 1st

    Strategy --- Unless you abused the shop, you'll probably be out of good tokens
    by now. Just make sure you get the 2nd place bonus, then play two 5-Tokens
    at the very end to win. This one is gonna be a close victory...

    Strategy --- YOU NEED THAT FIRST BONUS. There are very few tokens available, so
    unless you bought lots of 3-Tokens in the shop, you're going to need every
    last 1-Token. BE CONSERVATIVE.

    other clans aren't. Just try to struggle through this one... you kinda NEED to
    use the Token Shop...

    Strategy --- ARGHGHGHGH. If you don't get that bonus, you're doomed. GET IT.
    Then, use the couple tokens you have left. This is the FINAL auction in the
    game (if you've beaten all the others), so it's SUPPOSED to be hard.

    8) ITEMS WON FROM AUCTIONS                                 Fitems
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    There are so many items that can be won from auctions, it is extremely hard
    to get a complete list. Despite that, most of the items that can be won are
    listed here. I have gone through more than 60 auctions to find these items, 
    so most, possibly even all, of the items will be listed here. Also, since I've 
    seen each of the Grand Prizes several times, I'm almost positive that I have 
    all of them listed.
    
    Also, a quick tip discovered by Gabriel-
    
    "I've discovered a little trick for getting the items you want from the 
    auction house.  If you save your game just before the auction house 
    season starts, you will be able to reload your game over and over until 
    the auction house spawns a treasure pool that has items you want from it."
    
    Thanks!

    10) GENERAL FAQ AND CREDITS                                  Fcredits
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q: Why do you have the requirements for mastering some, but not all the goals?
    
    A: I didn't decide to make this FAQ until I had already long-since 
    mastered them. I still have to start a new file and play though long 
    enough to figure it out. Sorry for the trouble... D=
    
    
    Q: Your Strategy for ********** isn't that good.
    
    A: I'm not the master of Auctions, so if you want, just disregard my suggestion
    and do what you want. These are the ways I found easiest to win every auction
    in that set.
    
    
    Q: ********************* is incorrect.
    
    A: While that isn't a question, if there's any part of the FAQ that is 
    incorrect or is unclear, please let me know, 
    by GameFAQS or by email.
    
    Q: Some things look uneven, marginwise.
    
    A: Yeah... I had no idea about the margin limit
    until I submitted the FAQ. Sorry about this...
