Thank you for choosing to read my guide, I hope you find it helpful.  In this
guide I will give you strategies for beating all the missions.  However,
because of the randomness of the Artificial Intelligence (what controls the
enemy), there is no way I can give you a set number of steps that will
guarantee victory.  Instead I will give you some strategies and ideas that have
helped me beat the game. This guide will also provide some information and
strategies on party building and abilities that you'll be wanting.

My goal is to try and make this guide as easy for you to read and use, and as
helpful as possible, if you can think of anything that would help this guide
fulfill that goal, then send it to me at Happybuddha311(at)Aol(dot)com. Make
sure you include two things in the subject line "Your FFTA FAQ" and what site
you are reading the guide from.  That way I can tell that it isn't spam, and if
you ask a question already found in the guide that either the host hasn't
updated or you're a lazy, stupid pile.

If you are a webmaster looking to host this guide, don't.  The only two sites
that are allowed to have this guide are Gamefaqs.com and Ign.com. If you are
reading this guide anywhere else, please inform me, so the parties involved can
be dealt with in a courtroom setting.

With all that said, let's get to the part of the guide you came to read, or so
I'm hoping.

It all starts in Ivalice, with you, Marche (or whatever you call your
character) as the new kid.  You get into a snow ball fight at school (The
tutorial), where you meet Ritz and Mewt.  Mewt gets picked on a lot, and what
not and gets hit with a rock.  The battle ends and you see Mewt later, and he
has this book.  You bring the book, and mewt to meet your brother who is
digging the book.  Yadda-yadda-yadda (Seinfeld reference)  You are in the game.
Now you got to find a way out of it.

===============================================================================

                                      Characters

===============================================================================
Here's a brief description of the important characters in the game.  Though
this section isn't that important to read, well it's actually not important at
all, all the other guides had one, so I think I should do what they do because
I'm a blind sheep.  My list isn't that important though because most of the
characters aren't that important to begin with.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                   Marche Radiuju
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is you, a very important person in the game.  You can change the name if
you think it sounds too goofy.  Anyway, you're the new kid because your parents
got divorced, but more importantly, you're crippled brother needed the fresh
air.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                    Ritz Malheur
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ritz is the tough tomboy everyone knows.  She like mewt, is happy in the new
world because of this tiny secret about her hair.  Which is kinda stupid at
first, but when you get to the actual cut-scene you'll quickly understand.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                         Mewt Randell (AKA "Prince Mewt)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mewt is that one kid everyone picks on at school.  He is shy and passive he is
teased badly, as you have seen in the snowball fight.  His mother has passed
away, and his father is a drunk, Mewt finds the book that transports him to the
fantasy world.  He is content there as prince, with his mother, and his dad as
an Important Judge.  He is so content that he'll do everything in his power to
stop you, his friend back in the real world.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                      Montblanc
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Montblanc is your first, and only friend in the fantasy world.  He will help
you explain all the little things you should know.  (Because he tells you these
things, I won't bother to explain them to you, so listen up!).  He'll be one of
your stronger clan members, and you can't ever kick him out for whatever
reason.


-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-


                                    B A S I C S


-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

There's a lot you need to know, lucky for you the game will teach you most of
that, and I'll hit over it here real quick in case you're a stupid person who
hasn't played the game in a while, or whatever your lame excuse is.  There is
also some stuff that I felt you should know (Basic Strategies).

===============================================================================

                                 The Battle System

===============================================================================

The Battle System is turn based, unlike most RPGs however, it's one character
per turn.  There is a line-up to see whose turn it is next in the menus, but
looking at that is usually rather pointless.  Sure you could form some crazy
ass strategies with it, but for most of the levels, the strategy will all be
done before the battle (Picking which Jobs to use), or with various planned
attacks (Using Status Ailments).

Also, after a battle all of your units will be healed of any status ailments
and of any HP/Mp Loss.  That is one of the major flaws in this game.  If it was
like a normal RPG, where you would keep that status until healed, it would make
the game A LOT more challenging and fun.

===============================================================================

                                      The Map

===============================================================================

The Map (Usually known as the "Overworld" in most RPGs), is a rather simple
thing.  From time to time you will get Icons, you put them in the circles.
Placing them in certain patterns will get you a "Treasure Hunt" which allows
you to have gain rare items (usually they suck as though).  Look at AstroBlue's
Map, on Gamefaqs.com to get a good idea of what to do.

There is a few different Icons, the only important ones are the towns, they
allow you to get missions, buy things and trade, and some of them have a few
other nifty things (Law card store, Jail, Monster Farm Etc.).  The other types
of Icons are nature deals, (Rivers, Mountains, Caves, Plains etc.), these are
where battles and missions take place.

One thing to watch for is the other groups roaming around, if you both get on
the same icon, you'll be in for a battle.  There is no random battles, so don't
worry about that, if you don't want to fight just walk around them.

===============================================================================

                                       Saving

===============================================================================

When you save during a battle, it will save that progress, plus the last save
before that.  When you boot up again, and go into the battle, it will erase the
save you made while at the battle.  So if you lose the battle you will have to
go back to that first save.  This is why I don't recommend saving during a
battle unless you absolutely have to.

===============================================================================

                                Basic Strategies

===============================================================================

Before you begin a fight look at what the enemy is using.  If he has distant
fighters, you'll want fast units, or distance units of your own.  If he has
close up units, you'll want some tough units and many distance units.  Also if
you notice that he has mostly archers or black magicians, you can use the law
cards to forbid their Forte (In our case, Gunmanship and Fire, Ice, or
Lighting).

When attacking, always attack from the sides or from the rear.  This will give
you a better chance of hitting the opponent.  For your close up units, make
sure you give them counter or reflex if they can learn it.  This way when the
enemy tries to strike back he'll be hit or he'll miss your unit.  I wouldn't
waste your time on distance units with this.

Use the terrain to block attacks.  If you can get into a nook so the enemy
can't hit you from behind you'll have a better chance of surviving.  Also,
fighting literally back to back works well.  Then if one unit dies, they still
can't hit you from behind until the judge moves the corpse.

Check "Clan Strategies" Appendix for more in-depth strategy.

===============================================================================

                                   Leveling up

===============================================================================
In the job descriptions I labeled what stats get raised the most when you level
up.  Well, this took me awhile to figure out (like 5 minutes, but hey, there
was no "Next level at ____EXP") Anyway, you need 100 Exp points to gain a
level.  When it's your units turn it says what EXP you're at on one of the
bottom most lines.

A cheap way to gain levels quickly is to buy a whole bunch of potions and sit
there and use them over and over and over in battles while you have the rest of
the team to actually fight.  This gives you 10 Exp each turn.  You could get
more by fighting, or you could get less, depending on the enemy's levels.  This
is a good amount to get each turn, so I'd stick with that.

Whenever you're actually fighting, instead of doing the cheap way like
mentioned above.  And you don't have an attack that you can do, use a potion to
still get EXP for that turn.  If you don't well, then it's just a waste of
time.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Here is the section you'll be looking for, this section does not include the
first two "missions" ("Snowball Fight" and "Lizard Men!?") as those are more of
tutorials.  Also this does not cover random encounters.  This does cover every
single mission in the "Report" option of the clan menu, as well as some hidden
missions, and the "Reserve Missions". Please note, that when I say "Reward" I
mean only things you are guaranteed to get, such as gil and the different types
of expierence.

*NOTE:* When I update, I will do one it page by page (see the pages in the
"Report" option of the clan menu) Sometimes I'll do 2, but usually one, that is
as soon as I finish all of the missions on the page.

One more note before we start.  With the exception of the first 24 missions,
there is no rhyme or reason* why the missions pop up, it's completely random,
so I ordered the missions by number.
*: Reason after you complete the requirements.

So without further Adieu, let's get to work.


===============================================================================

                            Mission 001: Herb Picking

===============================================================================
Premise: "Looking for people to gather the fever-reducing herb muscmaloi on the
Giza Plains.  No experience necessary. - Ivalice Pharmacists Guild"

Requirements: None
Rank: 3
Where: Giza Plains
What: Defeat all Enemies!

This missions is pretty easy, seeing as it's your first real mission.  You will
face up against 5 easy monsters that shouldn't cause too much trouble.  The
hardest enemy to take down in this mission will be the sprite.  Use an archer
or attacks from behind to finish her off.

Rewards: 60 gil, 40 AP, Lutia Pass will now be open.

===============================================================================

                             Mission 002: Thesis Hunt

===============================================================================
Premise: "I search for my master the late Dr. Dalilei's thesis.  It was taken
from me by bandits as I crossed the Lutia Pass. - Dr. Coleman, Geologist

Requirements: None
Rank: 3
Where: Lutia Pass
What: Defeat all enemies

Another mission, this one is quite different in terms of terrain.  You face 6
enemies, forget about the archer, at this level he isn't going to do anything
meaningful.  The thief can only take gil, and has a weak attack so leave him
too.  However he soldiers and the white mage should be in your sights.  The
white mage first, as it has healing power, then the Soldiers, as they have high
attacks.  Of course, the thieves will reach you first, you can blow right by
them.  It's a good idea to have a white mage that knows cure, because even if
they are little hits from the archer and the thieves they'll add up if they
target one of your members.

Rewards: 4,000 gil, 40 AP, 100 CP, Nubswood will now be open.

===============================================================================

                              Mission 003: The Cheetahs

===============================================================================
Premise: "There's a price on the heads of the band of con-men calling
themselves the "Cheetahs."  Word is they were seen in the Nubswood! - Bratt,
Streetear"

Requirements: None
Rank: 3
Where: Nubswood
What: Defeat all enemies

In this mission you'll be joined by Ritz (a Fencer) and her clan mate Shara (An
archer).  You fight against 3 distance fighters and 2 close fighters.  You can
pick 4 extra units.  It's a good idea to pick either fast units, or distance
fighters.  As Well as one or two fighters with good melee attacks.  As the
Mage, Archer and White monk will hit you from a distance.  Try and take out
first the mage, who will do damage to Ritz (as her "reflex" blocks most
physical damage), then Take out the fighter, who has the highest physical
attacks.  After that, take them out at your leisure.


Rewards: 6,000 Gil, 40 Ap, 100 Cp, Eluut Sands will now be open

===============================================================================

                             Mission 004: Desert Peril

===============================================================================
Premise: "There's been a rash of attacks by crazed monsters in the Eluut Sands
area recently.  Will pay for research & Removal. - Eluut Civilian Militia"

Requirements: None
Rank: 3
Where: Eluut Sands
What: Defeat all enemies

The goal here is to take out the flan first (Cream is his name or something
like that I believe).  Use Magic to take him down as weapons won't do shit.  A
Blizzard or fire is all you can use, as he'll just absorb thunder attacks.
Next, take down the red panthers, as they pose the most threat.  After that the
antlion and the Coeurl are easy.


Rewards: 7,000 gil, 40 Ap, 100 Cp, Ulei River will now be open.

===============================================================================

                              Mission 005: Twisted Flow

===============================================================================
Premise: "I've seen the Ulei River bending and warping most strangely, but no
one else can see anything! Please find out the truth. - Jura, Time mage Adept"

Requirements: None
Rank: 3
Where: Ulei River
What: Defeat the Boss

The goal in this mission is to take out the Totema, as it's the first one, let
me explain this.  The Totema are the protectors of the crystals, each time you
defeat them, you come closer to going back to the real world.  Also each time
you defeat them, a race will gain the ability to use the totema for a powerful
attack (they all do different things), you need 10 judge points to cast them
though.

Okay, back to the strategy.  Most of the Totema's support is flying, and the
best way to take down a flyer is with missile attacks, use archers and mages.
However, you should have a unit or two with high attack to back up Marche. The
Ahriman on the right side is equipped with a technique that has a chance to
kill your units in one hit, this should be your first concern.  After that,
send your two melee units at the totema, and use the archers and mages to take
out the rest of the support then help out killing the totema.


Rewards: 8,000 gil, 80 Ap, 100 Cp, Cadoan will now be open.

===============================================================================

                                Mission 006: Antilaws

===============================================================================
Premise: An alchemist named "Ezel" claims he's found a way to nullify laws!
Looking for information about him and his "antilaws" - *Numerous requests

Requirements: After you meet Ezel, enter Cadoan
Rank: 3
Where: Cadoan
What: Defeat all enemies

This mission is fairly easy, and you learn how to use anti-law cards after it,
so it's a big help (not really..well kinda).  The enemies you face are mostly
melee, so get a good combination of strong melee fighters and distance
fighters.  Take out the illusionist first, as he'll give you the most trouble
with his magic attacks.  After that, take out the Gladiator and the Hunter,
followed by the fighter, and ninja, finish off the Defender last.  Also, Ezel
may use an attack that puts most enemies to sleep, if he does, then switch
plans to attack all of the units that don't fall asleep.


Rewards: 9,000 gil, 40 Ap, 100 Cp, Aisenfield will now be open.

===============================================================================

                               Mission 007: Diamond Rain

===============================================================================
Premise: "Word is, diamonds are falling in the rain in Aisenfield.  If it's
true, we'll be rich! - Geyna, Streetear"

Requirements: None
Rank: 3
Where: Aisenfield
What: Defeat all enemies

This mission is fairly easy, provided you attack right.  Try to get Black mages
and Dragoons in your party for this one.  Make sure they know A) A Thunder
spell, and B) Wyrmkiller.  Now, take out the ice drakes (dragons) with thunder
attacks and the attack "Wrmkiller".  After that use fire or ice to take out the
Ice Flan, and the Bomb and Lamia can go down with regular attacks.  Easy huh?


Rewards: 10,600 Gil, 40 Ap, 100 Cp, Roda Volcano will now be open.

===============================================================================

                              Mission 008: Hot Awakening

===============================================================================
Premise: "The Roda Volcano has been active lately.  The Royal Mage Academy
wants to hire researchers.  No experience needed, must like heat. - Ramda,
Geology Labs"

Requirements: None
Rank: 3
Where: Roda Volcano
What: Destroy All Targets

This mission is super easy.  The goal is to take out all of little crystals,
those don't even fight back.  So use any units that you want to level up, or
learn some techniques, cause this mission is easy.


Rewards: 11,400 gil, 80 Ap, 100 Cp, Koringwood will now be open.

===============================================================================

                                Mission 009: Magic Wood

===============================================================================
Premise: "Trespassers have been cutting down trees in the Korining for their
magical properties,  They must be stopped! - Guilaume, Ranger Captain"

Requirements: None
Rank: 3
Where: Koringwood
What: Defeat all enemies

The enemies in this mission focus on distance or speed.  So make sure you use
the same to combat them.  Your primary targets should be the thieves as they
have stealing abilities that could really piss you off.  After that, take out
the summoner and time mage.  Then the two archers (one's a sniper).  And BAM
you're done with this mission.

Rewards: 12,600 gil, 40 Ap, 100 Cp, Salikawood will now be open.

===============================================================================

                             Mission 010: Emerald Keep

===============================================================================
Premise: "The Royal Mage Academy has given up their search for the giant
emerald crystal of Salika keep.  Treasure hunters, now's your chance! - Levey,
Search Team member"

Requirements: None
Rank: 3
Where: Salikawood
What: Defeat the Boss

This mission is a bit more difficult, your goal is to take out babus.  He's
pretty easy to kill if you've got a decent group of units.  You should use some
distance fighters, as the terrain in the level makes for slow movement, and
they only have one distance fighter (The Gunner).  First take out the Templars,
beware of the one with the "Bonecrusher" Counter attack.  This dodges your
attack and hits you with one that is 1.5x stronger.  After that you can ignore
everything else and attack babus himself.  He should go down pretty quick if
you surround him.

Rewards: 13,600 Gil, 40 Ap, 100 Cp, Nargai Cave will now be open.

===============================================================================

                            Mission 011: Pale Company

===============================================================================
Premise: "A spirit or ghost was seen going into Nargai Cave, and is making low
moaning noises.  We can't sleep.  Please investigate. - Nargai Area Residents"

Requirements: None
Rank: 3
Where: Nargai Cave
What: Defeat the Boss

The goal in this mission is to take out the Totema, however his support (3
elemental dragons) is nothing to snuff at.  Bring some Black Mages to use
opposite elements on the dragons to take them out first.  Then bring in some
strong units to take out the totema itself.  If you have four units that know
Combos, surround the totema and keep using the combos to take it down.

Rewards: 15,000 Gil, 80 Ap, 100 Cp, Bagupa Port will now be open.

===============================================================================

                               Mission 012: Jagd Hunt

===============================================================================
Premise: "On my brand-new airship's maiden flight, she was damaged in a hit-
and-run!  The Criminal is in Jagd Dorsa, Kupo! Get him! - Nono, Machinist
Apprentice"

Requirements: Meet Nono at Baguba, then head to Jagd Dorsa
Rank: 3
Where: Jagd Dorsa
What: Defeat all Enemies

This mission is dangerous, if you don't have a white mage with a revive spell
and lots of phoenix downs you'll lose team-members.  This is the first mission
in a Jagd, so let me explain this.  Jagds have no laws, however, after the
battle is over, judges traditionally revivie all that get "K.O.ed"  With no
law, there are no judges, so if you have a KOed unit at the end of the battle
they die.  So don't let that happen.

Okay, now that we know that, take out the assassin first. It can take you out
in one hit with her "Last Breath" attack.  After that, the hunter or the Blue
mage.  The rest don't matter.  The best way to beat this mission is to split up
into groups of two and kick ass (this technique is described in the "Clan
Strats" section of the clan appendix).

The clan in this mission is a good variety, take notes.  Anyway, by now you
should have an Assassin, and if you don't *SMACK* GET ONE!  Assassins are the
best units in the game.  Anyway, use the assassin to run around killing
everyone.  The end you win.  >_>  Anyway, the Black mage knows return magic, so
you'll need to take him out with melee, the Sage knows reflex, so you'll have
to take him out with magic.  What does that tell you?  To bring a balanced
force to this fight.  Now, the Paladin knows some curing spells, so take him
out first, or he'll just un-do all of your damage.

Again Ritz (Now an Elementalist) and Shara (Now a Sniper) will join your party.
However you can't use them (They're computer controlled).  They can probably
finish the missions by themselves, but that's no fun!  So bring your
assassin(s) and any distance fighters are really fast units you have.  Most of
the enemies in this mission have magic and fight from a distance.  The most
bothersome is the Alchemist who knows "Meteor" which is quite the powerful
attack.  So focus on that.  If you have an assassin, use her to take out the
Gadgeteer, as it has "Damage > Mp", which transfers all damage into MP Damage,
so you have to chip away his MP and his actual health.  Though a "Last breath"
will take care of this in one shot.

This is a two part mission, the first part you have to kill some guys that
intercept you, 2 templars, a Gunner, 2 Mog Knight, a Sage and a Paladin.  Take
out the Templars then the Paladin.  The Sage doesn't have too many high-end
attacks so he isn't a problem, the Mog Knights are jokes and gunners need clear
shots to be effective.  There is some rare armor held by the Templars, so if
you have a thief that can steal armor, give it a shot.  It'll also help take
them out, so even if you don't want the armor it's a good idea.

The Second part is where your main charter must fight alone.  You will face
Babus and he's pretty weak so long as you are semi-powerful.  Take him out then
attack the targets.  He'll counter so watch that, if you have any powerful
distance attacks I suggest using those, otherwise just get in there and smack
him up.

In this mission you face two thieves that can really take out your good
equipment.  So either equip crap equipment or the ability "Maintenance" to all
that know it.  Okay, with that done, go in with some distance fighters and fast
fighters, because the enemy is quite spread out, and you'll have a hard time
getting attacks in otherwise.  Take out the thieves first, as you'll probably
approach them first.  Then split up and take down the bishops and fighters.
You could also make sure that "Stealing" is against the law, then ignore the
thieves and they'll either go to jail or just be little pests (as they don't
have good attack rates).

enemies bunch up (and they will) and blast them with all the area spells you
know.  When they split up, or there is only a few left, take them out with the
melee fighters.  Easy as your mother >_>.

This mission is another two-parter.  The first part all you have to do is hold
out until the boss (Llednar) uses his "Omega" attack, he'll be thrown into
jail.  This only takes a couple of turns, so just attack the rest of the
enemies for EXP.

The Second part, you must defeat the totema, the vampires will come back a few
turns after you kill them, so just focus all efforts on the Totema.  The Totema
has around 400 Hp, so if try and wack at him with your most powerful guys.
Also, the vampires will fall if you use white magic on them, so bring a white
mage along, to kill the vampires if they get too bothersome.

Marche and crew will face off against a clan of Viera bandits.  Which means
you'll want units that are fast and have high hit ratings, because Viera are
fast and they dodge sloppy attacks.  In this mission I recommend taking out the
assassin and white mage first, as they'll really get in the way.  From that
take them out in whatever order you want.  I took out the Summoner first
because her magic is quite powerful.

This is a two part mission, before you start it SAVE!!!!!!!  Also make sure
your Mache is an Uber-bad ass motherfucker that's fast and can really move.  An
"Angel Ring" will help out A TON, if you have one that is, if you don't make
sure marche knows how to use items and you have lots of potions.

In the first part you'll want to take out the Alchemist really quickly, as if
he casts "Death" you just lost one of your commrades.  Next, I suggest the
Gladiators and then the templar, the mog knight will just be a fly buzzing
around and trying to hurt you but he's got nothing.  If you have learned "Steal
Weapon" try to take the Moggle's sword he is carrying a good one, I don't
remember what it is (I didn't write it down) but I wrote "Mog knight" carries
good weapon, steal it.  I don't think I'd lie to myself...make sure there is no
law against stealing though.

The second part of this mission is Marche versus Mewt's new bitch.  Llednar is
one hard-ass, he has a huge attack rating and has an attack called "Omega"
which will fuck you up beyond belief, but it only works if he is standing next
to you.  You can't attack Llednar, as he has some sort of force-field that
disallows all attacks.   Be prepared to last 5-10 turns before the judge
arrives and Llednar slinks away.

Before you start this mission make sure you have a white mage with the ability
"Esuna" as nearly every enemy in this level has Status Ailment effects.  If you
don't have that get some "Cureall" and other status ailing cures at the shop
before you start.  As for the fight, take out the Juggler and the Animist
first, as "Sheep Count" and "Dagger" can stop your units really quickly, which
is a problem when you're trying to open a can of whoop ass.  The Sage should
get it next as it has a high magic rating, after that it's free game on the
rest of the enemies, split up and use two units to take the rest down with the
white mage to "put out fires" (Cure status ailments).

This mission is pretty easy.  The most important thing to take out is the
Jawbreaker as it's LV5 death is a real pain in the ass if your units have
levels that are multiples of five.  After that the Big Malboro is the only
really tough enemy because of his ability to deploy status ailments.  I suggest
taking in a black mage or someone with elemental magic to take care of him and
the thunderdrake.  Everything else can just be beat down with swords and shit.

Oh joy, another battle against a clan full of Viera.  This one is pretty easy,
the goal is to take out the Red mage "Ritz".  However she should be protected
by quite a few Viera, but by now you should have the Dragoon totema, if you do
then use that and be done with this mission.  Otherwise I suggest using
assassins and Archers to mow through the ranks and get to Ritz without hassle.

Oi, a three part mission, this one really is hell.  Make sure you save and have
some really strong units that aren't assassins.  If not, go level up with some
side missions.  Also, try to teach "Combo" to the units you plan on using
before this mission, and get their judge point total up to 10, that way you
will have the strongest combos possible.  If you do have these things then
proceed to Ambervale and go for it.

The first part of the mission is against Llednar the Biskmatar, who can use
still use Omega, so don't stand next to him unless you intend on killing him.
Bring a few theifs to this fight as the enemies have some really nice gear, the
Ninja has a Zanmato which are hard to find, and pretty much all of Llednar's
stuff is great.  Anyway, if you can surround Llednar and just destroy him with
the most powerful attacks you've got.  If you have a paladin "Holy Blade" does
the trick nicely.  As soon as you finish this, you can proceed to the next
battle.

The next battle is against Queen Remedi, she has this bad ass axe thingy that
you can't steal or break, so don't try.  She will also have two guards at her
disposal, she isn't that tough, so ignore then the guards and go straight for
the queen with your best attacks.  Distance attacks don't work so well, nor do
magic, the best way is to just get up close and smack the shit out of her with
combos, try and get 4 units that know combos around her for the best effect.

Finally the last battle.  Remedi will spawn as this blue thing and she'll have
wicked awesome magic abilities that can fuck up your whole party in one shot.
So, go straight for the throat with physical attack units, anything else will
be a weak attack if it even gets through.  Like last time it will help greatly
if you can surround her with units that know combos and then use the combos
turn after turn to do the most damage.  Again Remedi will have two guards but
just take their hits, as they won't kill you for a few hits.  Remedi will have
around 500-600 HP, so make sure you've got some units that can stand up to
punishment for awhile.

kill everyone and get experience on your way through.  I usually just target
the boss, Because there's always plenty of battles to gain experience in if you
want it.

Anyways, Dolce is a pretty strong mage, a pretty strong mage with a low defense
to physical attacks that is.  Sneak around his goons and beat him silly with a
soldier or any ability that specializes in melee combat to finish this fast.

However, if you're after the EXP, then you'll want to take out the whit mage
first as the healing he does can really be counter-active to what you are
trying to do.  Next I suggest the soldier as he attacks more often and harder
than the white monk, followed by the white monk and finally Dolce.

The Gaanna brothers are the two moogles in this match, take out the Juggler

finish off this level.

If you're after the precious EXP, then take out the Time mage first, before he
casts any haste spells.  Next the Jugglers is your target, as his disabling
techniques are a real pain in the ass.  After that do so as you see fit taking
out the Mog Knight last so you can get all the EXP possible from this fight.

Your goal here is to take out the alchemist, so get some quick units together
and go in for the kill before the slower movements have a chance to get in the
way.  Being an Alchemist he is real slow and has a small movement, so you
should easily be able to catch up to him and slash him to ribbons.

If you're after EXP, take out the Theif first, he'll steal your gil and judge
points, though he may steal gear, so taking out him first is always a good
plan.  Next, the Dragoon as he has the highest attack, he may be tough but cast
some spells on him so he can't hit back is always a good plan.  Next attack the
gladiator he should go down pretty fast as gladiators usually don't have too
good of a defense.  That leaves us with the archer, circle around him so he'll
have to pick one unit, he should go down easily.  Now just do what's left and
kill Diaghilev.

If you want that precious EXP, then you'll have to take out the archer ASAP.
He'll keep trying to Charm your units which can be a real pain in the ass.
After that take down the bishop who will heal his units so they survive to piss

This missions is kinda tricky, there is no real good way to end it quick, as
the assassin is likely to get one of your units and you'll have to heal them or
risk losing them forever.  So try and attack first from a distance to avoid
this mission.

I don't recommend fighting this mission for EXP, as trying to keep all of your
units alive is quite a task.

Another Tricky mission, you'll probably want to deviate from the plan and
attack and kill the assassin first, before she kills some of your units.  After
that aim for the illusionist to finish off this mission quickly.

If you're in this for the EXP, take out the assassin first, then the Dragoon,

Gladiator than the fighter, and finally the archer and Lodion himself.  If you

Thief's are real fast furious fighters with decent attacks and decent hit
points.  They are about middle of the road if you don't mind a lack of magic
points.  I would suggest making your Human's thieves near the middle of their
development.  This allows them to gain speed, and to gain the ability to steal
things, especially stealing weapons, it's the best way to get rare ones.  Also
even if you don't want the thief abilities, learn one of the best response
attacks "Counter".

The Archers are the most balanced base units you can get.  However, they have
some really shitty weapons.  I suppose that's the price you pay for the
distance.  Anyway getting a hunter is much better then sticking around with an
archer as the bows are a bit better.  Though while you're an archer learn both
of the "Aim:____" They can help put a stop to an enemy that's giving you
trouble.

White mages are definitely a good investment.  However I suggest that the
second set of A-Abilities is Black Mage attacks.  So you can heal and fight
depending on what the situation calls for.  Though having all of your units
learn a few white mage abilities doesn't hurt, it will save you a lot of pain
when you realize you only have 1 phoenix down, and 5 KOed Party members with 6
more enemies to kill.

Black Mages are the cream of the Magic lot, this is why you should learn the
black mage abilities first, because the power will be much higher.  Which will
increase the effects of both sets of spells, as well as the success chances.
Finding the high level color magic attacks might be hard as those rods can't be
found in stores.  Keep an eye out, you might be able to steal one or two.

Masters at combat, fighters are best suited for melee combat.  They have a good
deal of great weapon abilities, however I wouldn't recommend changing in your
soldiers too soon.  As the soldiers have weaker combos, they have the same
weapon attack bonuses, plus they get more HP at level up as well as weapon
defense.  Just something to think about.

The Paladins are kinda like white mages, in the sense that they are there to
protect.  A good strategy would be to have a paladin or two guard a mage or
archer/sniper/hunter, so that they enemy has to go through them first.

Ninjas are great to have, they are fast, and have a pretty decent attack, and
they can learn elemental based attacks.  The best ability they can learn is
"Double Sword"  It takes forever to learn, but allows them to hold 2 swords,
meaning they can learn an ability twice as fast, or learn two abilities at
once.  Once you learn this, you can change to something like a solider and
DOMINATE any enemy at Melee Combat.  The first time you get a "Nosada" (the
sword needed) is when your smithing skill (clan) reaches 20.  Well, you could
also get it as a random reward for a mission, but that isn't too likely.

If you want to use morphers, you'll need some hunters.  You capture the souls
of the monster (that then go to the monster bank) where you can feed them
items.  The more you feed them, the more they like you, which makes their souls
stronger when the Morpher uses the soul.  Besides that, the Hunter is just an
archer with a bit better offensive attack ratings.  So after you learn all of
the useful archer A Abilities, switch jobs to this.

can hold more abilities then any other character (It was a BITCH to get them
all).  The best way I found is to get a  beastmaster to attack you with the
various attacks.  Well, take a look at these abilities and tell me if you think
the Blue mages still suck eh?

Abilities:
*Change item needed to Creature needed, once you learn "Learning" an animal
must attack your mage with this attack to learn it.

It takes awhile to train these, but when you do, DAMN!  These things are black
mages on Steroids.  All of their attacks consist of elemental damage to all
enemies.  You can easily see why these things are so great, and they raise in
magic power and MP with every level up.  What else could you want?  If you want
one of these though I suggest you get it to gain some speed first.  Because
otherwise you'll be waiting for their attack every time.

The white monk is a pretty well-rounded unit.  Although it doesn't level up in
MP as quickly, none of the abilities need it, so you should be covered.  The
White monk has a few distance abilities, which should be taken into
consideration when planning any strategies with it.

The Warriors are the first step in the job hierarchy to becoming some of the
best units in the game.  The Warriors easily turn into dragoons or defenders,
either of which I recommend you switch too as soon as you can, as they both get
better stats at level ups.

Bishops are the Bangaa equivalent of a White Mage, the difference is, Bishops
hit a little harder.  Though I'd rather have a White mage in my group then a
bishop.  In my personal opinion, Bangaa Should be left in jobs that allow them
to have good strong attacks, like Dragoons.

Templar abilities complement dragoon techniques pretty well, so I usually learn
both.  As they both use Spears, you can still use the best dragoon attack
(jump) while you learn most of the abilities for Templars.  The Templars have
the best defense of any Bangaa, while Dragons have the highest weapon attacks,
which should show you how well they complement each other.  So, try and train
them as both.

As I said earlier, Dragoons are best suited to be trained with Templar
Abilities as well.  In my Opinion, Training the templars are better, because at
the beginning of the game you'll want units that can take a bigger beating.
Anyway, the Dragoons are one of my favorite units in the game, which could
explain why I have 4 of them in my clan.  These bad-boys have a nice attack
called jump, that hits any unit four squares away, regardless of height
difference, which will probably be the attack you use most after training a
Dragoon, so make it the first ability he learns.

Defenders are the best Bangaa unit with weapons, they are very well rounded as
far as abilities go.  However Defenders are best as distractions to cover up
real plans, this is the guy you send in while you send your assassin around
back to flank.  Nine times out of Ten the Defender will live, so try and use
them for this purpose.

Gladiators are a weird job, they have a really good level up stat boost, but
they can't use the best equipment.  They are however a good spring board in the
early levels to create a wicked powerful bangaa fighter.  The Abilities of this
job aren't too great, though they're nothing to snuff at either, a good mix of
attacks really.  Some elemental and some physical damage type stuff, the best
being the Ultima Sword abilitiy, good luck finding a Materia blade though.

Black Mages are the cream of the Magic lot, this is why you should learn the
black mage abilities first, because the magic power will be much higher.  Which
will increase the effects of both sets of spells, as well as the success
chances.  Finding the highest level color magic attacks might be hard as those
rods can't be found in stores.  Keep an eye out, you might be able to steal one
or two.

White mages are definitely a good investment.  However I suggest that the
second set of A-Abilities is Black Mage attacks.  So you can heal and fight
depending on what the situation calls for.  Though having all of your units
learn a few white mage abilities doesn't hurt, it will save you a lot of pain
when you realize you only have 1 phoenix down, and 5 KOed Party members with 6
more enemies to kill.

Ahh, the Beastmaster, like the blue mage, a totally worthless job.  The only
time you can get any use out of a Beastmaster is if there is monsters in the
battle, which doesn't happen very often.  Next, you have to know the ability to
control the animal (even less likely).  I think that as a whole Beastmasters
blow.  Don't use them, unless you like blue mages, in which case you'll like
this you can get animals to attack the blue mage, so the mage can learn the
ability (That's about the only worthwhile thing beastmasters can do)

Time mages are used mainly to quicken up a slow team or to make a fast one
faster.  If you use mainly big hitters, that lack speed, use one or two of
these.  Using Slows and stops helps a lot even if you already have a fast team.
The Haste type moves are quite effective, a good idea to do is to use haste on
the time mage itself (Nu Mou are kind of a slow race) then cast it on the rest
of your team.  Demi and Quarter are two killer attacks, provided they hit they
can seriously speed up a battle.

It takes awhile to train these, but when you do, DAMN!  These things are black
mages on Steroids.  All of their attacks consist of elemental damage to all
enemies.  You can easily see why these things are so great, and they raise in
magic power and MP with every level up.  What else could you want?  If you want
one of these though I suggest you get it to gain some speed first.  Because
otherwise you'll be waiting for their attack every time.

Alchemists is one of the best Nu Mou jobs availiable, not like that shitty
beastmaster piece of crap.  Anyway, Alchemists have quite strong abilities, and
they even have an ability that lets them use Items (This means you don't need
to take an A-Ability slot to use an item, Very Cool. ^_^).  These attacks are
destructive, if combined with Sage abilities it would be the strongest mage in
the game.

Nu Mou Sages have insane level up boosts, the only problem is that they are
sooo slow.  A way to fix this is with some haste spells, or something like
that.  However, the Sages have some of the best attacks in the game, combine
them with an alchemist, and you have a serious force to be reckoned with.

The Morpher requires a hunter.  It's kind of bothersome, what you have to do is

use the ability.  What a crock of shit.  This is one of the most worthless jobs

                                        Viera

===============================================================================
If you like Furry Hentai, then you'll be drooling over the Viera, these sexy
rabbit-girls look like, ummm... rabbit girls.  They have a low defense, but
there is a technique called "Reflex" you can learn as a fencer which allows you
to avoid all melee damage.  The Viera are extremely quick, which makes them
good for almost any attack.  They have the most complicated and confusing Job
chain of any race, but here is my attempt to do it.

I know that isn't too easy to figure out, drop me an e-mail if you need help,
or if you think you can do better.

This is one of the best Viera jobs in my opinion.  I teach all the techniques
to my Viera then I usually use these and Corner (assassin abilities), to make
the best Viera.  If you are only look for a few attacks, you should look into
Nighthawk, Reflex, and Checkmate.

White mages are definitely a good investment.  However I suggest that the
second set of A-Abilities is Black Mage attacks.  So you can heal and fight
depending on what the situation calls for.  Though having all of your units
learn a few white mage abilities doesn't hurt, it will save you a lot of pain
when you realize you only have 1 phoenix down, and 5 KOed Party members with 6
more enemies to kill.

The Archers are the most balanced base units you can get.  However, they have
some really shitty weapons.  I suppose that's the price you pay for the
distance.  Anyway getting a Sniper is much better then sticking around with an
archer as the bows are a bit better, as are the abilities.  Though while you're
an archer learn both of the "Aim:____" They can help put a stop to an enemy
that's giving you trouble.

Red mages are a very balanced job, the only thing that would make them better
is if their magic points raised more at level up.  The red mage's abilities
seem more like support abilities then stand-alone abilities however, as they
really enhance those of the Fencer and Summoner.  It's good to learn double
cast if you use summoners, or the elemental abilities if you're using a fencer
(to combat flans).

Elementalists are a pretty decent job, quite well rounded, in fact this is not
just the most well rounded job for Viera, it is the most well rounded job in
the game.  They use some decent elemental attacks (duh) but they really aren't
that great of a unit, just another brick in the wall, a brick that is of the
foundation of the awesome ability that is "Assassin".  So you'll probably make
a quick stop on Elementalist a few times while playing the game, it's a good
job to even out stats, but other then that, this is just a stepping stone job.

This, is definitely one of the best magic users in the game.  A Summoner,
summons "Aeons" (at least that's what they called them in FFX).  Which are
elemental creatures.  Unlike FFX here, the "Aeon" just performs a powerful
elemental spell then flies off the screen again.  It's too bad you can't
control them, but it's great animation and a pretty good spell to boot.

Snipers are a pretty decent job, while more effective then archers, the best
Snipers are ones that have a huge Weapon Attack.  Seriously, would you rather
have a ninja that does 100 per attack*, or a Sniper that does 100 per attack?
It makes more strategic sense, you can attack from a distance, and move without
fear of being hit back (at least melee wise), and you can shoot over things, or
upward/downward at enemies.

*Note: I have a ninja that hits twice at 200+ a pop ^_^ so =P*

Ahh, Assassins, the creme de la creme of this game, Assassins are without a
doubt, the best job there is, PERIOD.  They knock out 95% of enemies with one
hit (Thank you Last Breath) plus they move first almost every battle.  Of
course, there is a catch (two actually).  The first being, you pretty much have
to run a Viera through every job possible to get an assassin, the second, is
that the weapon "Petal Chaser" that teaches the wonder ability "Last Breath" is
a pain in the ass to find.  As the game progresses though, you'll probably get
around 2-3 petal chasers, or you might have a nice friend trade you one.

*NOTE:* I will NOT be that nice friend =P.

===============================================================================
Ahh the delightful moogles, if you've ever played a Final Fantasy game then you
know all about these little mischievous creatures.  They have high defense and
resistance to magic, but their attacks and HP leave something to be desired.
Because of their weak attacks, they are best suited as long-range fighters or
mages.  Thankfully Moogles have the simplest job chain, so if you didn't get
the last ones, this one you should (hopefully) understand.

Black Mages are the cream of the Magic lot, this is why you should learn the
black mage abilities first, because the power will be much higher.  Which will
increase the effects of both sets of spells, as well as the success chances.
Finding the high level color magic attacks might be hard as those rods can't be
found in stores.  Keep an eye out, you might be able to steal one or two.

These are that one moogle that will ALWAYS piss you off with annoying attacks,
while annoying to your enemy, this job can be quite helpful.  The Animists use
the power of animals, much like Morphers, Beastmasters and Blue mages, only it
isn't a lame fucking job.  One of the best strategies to use is to teach a
moogle "Sheep Count" and all of the thief abilities, and BAM you just upgraded
your armory.  Plus your enemy will be weakened, as all they can do is draw new
weapons.

Because of their low HP, These make a bad choice for Moogles at the beginning
of the game.  Though they do accent the Moogles speed, It's better to go with
something that will give you more HP and MP, something moogles really need
badly.

Time mages are used mainly to quicken up a slow team or to make a fast one
faster.  If you use mainly big hitters, that lack speed, use one or two of
these.  Using Slows and stops helps a lot even if you already have a fast team.
The Haste type moves are quite effective, a good idea to do is to use haste on
the time mage itself (Nu Mou are kind of a slow race) then cast it on the rest
of your team.  Demi and Quarter are two killer attacks, provided they hit they
can seriously speed up a battle.

Gunners are like archers, but they have a much longer distance, a draw back
exists however.  Moogles by nature have weak attacks, so that's one drawback,
next the guns don't shoot over things, so if a friend or a ledge is in the way,
it'll hit it, instead of the desired target.  One way to get around this is to
use gunners on flatter maps and archers on more sloping maps.  The gunner does
have some upsides however, if you have learned the ability "Ultima Charge"(Mog
Knight Ability) you can use that, however the range will be increased to a long
ass away.  Which means that a huge, un-counterable attack is only a point and
click away, provided the shot is clear.

Mog knights are another moogle job with high attack rates, (the other being a
gunner).  They are suited well for melee combat, but more as support then as
you're bread and butter attack units.  These knights have some decent abilities
to learn, but definatly look into picking up "Ultima Charge" as you can use it
as a gunner, which will only almost guaranteed make you say one thing "SAY ELO
TO MY LIL FRIEND!!!!!!" at which point everyone in your math class will turn
around and wonder what kind of crack you're on.

Jugglers are another pain in the ass job, all they do is walk around the battle
field and inflict status ailments.  All of their abilities have a decent range,
so you can stand behind a group of bigger units and harass the other team from
there.  The best way to use a juggler is as a support unit, anything else is
suicide, or just lame.

Another lame ass job, nice ideas Square.  This little fella does one of two
things, Inflicts a major status ailment on all your enemies, or.. inflicts a
major status ailment on all of your units.  There are ways around this, such as
the ability "Astra" and accessories that nullify the certain status effects,
but that's a lot of work for a 50-50 shot at hitting the enemy hard.

*Note: All effects of A abilities either hit all your team or all foes*

                         I Fought the Law! (and the law won)

===============================================================================
There is always laws going on, these, I can only guess, are added to create
some difficulty, or so that you can't use the same strategy over and over.
That's not so bad, be like Bruce Lee in the best movie of all time "The Game of
Death" always adapting based on your foe.

Anyway, if you break a law, you'll get either a yellow or red card, like
soccer.  If you get a yellow card more then once in the same battle you'll
probably get a red card.  Now for each yellow card you get, you get penalized,
like losing some status points, a weapon, a gil fine, or possibly just not
getting an award.  Depending on the level of the law you break, the penalty
fits it.  Now, if you get a red card your unit will have to leave the battle
and be sent to jail, you can bail them out or let them fill out their sentence.

It's always a good idea to let them sit in the jail.  Why?  Because then it
gets the penalties off of their records.  All it takes is two battles, and then
you don't run such a high risk of getting another red card.  Yes, this means
you if you really want to, you can get away with breaking a few laws.  However,
you must take into consideration the penalty, and is it worth it?  Such as: You
have 3 units left, all badly damaged, the enemy has one uber powerful enemy.
You have an assassin with 5 HP, and "Cornered" is outlawed and is easily a red-
card.  Do I recommend taking the red-card to and using "Last Breath".
Absolutely.  Sometimes, you just don't have a choice.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            I Fought the Law (and I WON!)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is ways around the laws besides just breaking them however.  Sometime
into the game you'll find out about Antilaw cards and law cards.  You pull out
one of these babies in battle, and BAM the law goes away.  However, you may be
thinking "Who the hell would want MORE laws?"  Well you would stupid.  If your
opposing clan has many archers, you can ban "Missile" and they are screwed.
See what you can do with anti and Law cards?  Don't rely too heavily on them
though.  I usually just get a whole bunch of generic anti-law cards for things
that I use, just in case.  Otherwise the game doesn't challenge you to adopt,
so try that, it'll make you a better player.

                                   Clan Strategies

===============================================================================

There are many strategies to use in this game involving the entire clan.  Here
are some tips and things I like to use.  But first, let's go through the
recruiting of new members.

*When should you recruit?
When you have less then 10 clan members.

*How many should you Recruit?
Less then 20, any more, and start cutting people.

*Who should you recruit?
That's up to you, however I pick a cut off limit for the basic stats, you know
Attack power, magic Power, weapon defense, Magic resistance.  I usually take my
highest character with all each stat, remove all of his gear (it effects it
greatly, and new Recruits don't come equipped) anything within 25 points of
this is ideal.  The only exception is when the character has learned an Expert
job that you want.

*Who do I take?
Bangaa, I love Dragoons.  I also took lots of Humans, I have a few Ninjas,
because I like them.  Besides that I have 3 vierra (2 Assassins, one in
training to be one), two Nu Mou Sages, and some random people I needed for
various mission requirements.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                       Strategy 1: Pair Up, and Kick ass!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In this strategy you take two units that you think will work well together, IE:
A Sage and a Black Mage, and you put them together, and they target the same
targets.  Often units of the same job are Ideal for this strategy.  Some others
that work well are Archers and Dragoons, Gunners and Ninjas (Cover fire while
the ninja moves in) and Ninjas and Assassins.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                   Strategy 2: Variety is the spice of life
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is what most people use, get tons of members all having different jobs.
Then at the battle, take a look around and see what'd be the best counter
attack force.  This is good, but it's a basic and Novice strategy.  Don't be a
n00b, use something more advanced!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                        Strategy 3: California Uber Allies
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The name of this strategy comes from a Dead Kennedys song, which has absolutely
nothing to do with the strategy, just felt like mentioning it.  Anyway, this is
where you get one job unit that's extremely powerful, and train up 3-5 of these
bad-asses to the highest level possible.  Assassins and mages are good for this
type of strategy.  Make sure you have anti-law cards to prevent shit from
hitting the fan.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
            Strategy 4: Hah you can't hit me from way over there!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This strategy calls for using only distance units.  Such as Archers, Hunters,
Snipers, Gunners and mages.  Most opponents rely on close attacks so if you can
hit and move away they'll have no attack.  However, if they can respond with
distance units, it'll be a close fight, plus distance attacks are traditionally
weaker then up close ones, so you'll be fighting longer.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       Strategy 5: Okay let's take alpha...what's that?  The fight's over?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the one I like to use the most.  Basically you train your units to
super fast and powerful, assassins, Theives, and Ninjas are good for this, some
of your units should move twice before some of theirs move once.  If you start
them out as strong units (or teach Last Breath to the assassins) they should be
able to kill in one or two hits.  Combine this with strategy 1 and the enemies
are in for some deep shit.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                          Some Tips for the optimal clan
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*Keep at least 1 of every item that has either 1) An ability it teaches, or 2)
Has really high stats.  You never know when you're going to switch jobs and
want to teach all the abilities you can to a unit.  Besides, by the point in
the game where you'll have a ton of weapons the money won't even matter
anymore, I have a fully stocked armory and well over 90,000 gil.  It isn't even
a deal anymore.  So keep the weapons eh?

*If you're not using a unit, let him go.  Eventually he'll be so weak you'll do
it anyway, for now he's just a waste of space in your "select units" menu at
battles.

*Always use the units that are jumping up and down for missions you haven't
beaten yet (provided it's a dispatch one).  These have the best chance of
success.

*Always use the units that are walking or slumping over for missions you've
already beaten (provided it's a dispatch one). These have a lower chance of
success, but if they do win, you'll get better rewards.

*Teach all the abilities learnable to your units, at least 2 sets of them, for
optimal efficiency, but make sure they are related.  IE: A Black mage should
know all Black magic and white magic spells.  Or a Ninja should know all thief
abilities.  This will help you get around laws that are un-avoidable.  It also
helps if one set is marked "Tech" and the other one is "Skill", (that's one of
the laws).

*Train units that complement each other.  A mage that knows an ability that
puts enemy units to sleep and a thief are one great example.  If the unit is
asleep the chance of stealing is 100%.  Mages and Soldiers work well, as do
archers and units.  Things like that, you get the idea.

*Do dispatch missions over and over again, sometimes you'll need the mission
items more than once, or you'll need two.  Plus it's good experience for weaker
troops.

*For units that you like but are starting to get weak switch one of their
abilities to "Item" and have another super strong unit go into battle with
them, that one unit uses potions over and over, and the super strong unit
fights the battle.

*Don't always fight with the maximum number of units possible, this usually
complicates strategies far more than they have to be.  Just make sure your
units can take the enemy units, or that if you lose the mission it won't be
Game over (Your marche isn't in the battle).

*Save before any fight in the Jagds, if one of your units gets KOed in there
and you don't heal them you'll lose that unit and all the time you took
training it forever.  So play it safe and save eh?

In this section I'll tell you all about the armor, weapons and items (in
reverse order, IE: Items first) what it does, how much it costs (if you can buy
it) and what abilities it teaches.  As well as the in-game description of the
item.

===============================================================================

                                      Items

===============================================================================
Here are the items in alphabetical order for your convenience.  You can
purchase most of these items at a Shop in any town (anything with a price is
found in stores, or was found in stores while I was writing this), though
sometimes you'll get them for clan level up bonuses or mission rewards.  Also,
the costs aren't fixed, they flux, so if your prices are more than what I have
listed it's because I've beaten the game 90 some percent (as of the time of
this writing).  Some things that effect the price include: How far you are in
the game, the number of places you've liberated (it helps if you've liberated
the city at which you're shopping at) and the missions you've completed.  Also
the shop keep will inform you he'll say "Ahh, Clan ______, I've lowered prices
just for you" (or something to that effect).

If someone could be cool and send me the price for a newbie, that'd be helpful
(Send all to "Happybuddha311(at)aol(dot)com", you will be credited)

===============================================================================

(Correct as of December 20th 2003)

Hello, thank you for reading this guide.  If you cared enough
to read this far, I might as well entertain you.  I'm a 17 year old Virgo and I
am a senior (at Millard North High School).  In my free time I am either on the
Gamefaqs message boards (Current Events, Life the Universe and Everything, The
Faq Contributor Boards or Punk General), Playing Hockey, or working in either a
little shack by the side of the road selling tacos, or at the Ice rink.  This
will be my eleventh Faq/Walkthrough, and I feel that writing these has given me
something better to do then to watch that shit people call T.V.
