         IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you are looking for monster lists, magic lists, 
    charater bio's, or anything like that, you will not find it here.  This guide
    is to be a walkthrough only.  I will include useful information about monsters
    or magic or something like that in the walkthrough itself when it becomes 
    useful information.  I will perhaps add a side quest section after the 
    walkthrough is complete, but I am hoping to cover all the side quests in the
    walkthrough itself.  So if you want just the walkthrough, none of the other
    info you probably won't use, this guide should be good for you.  You can always
    just go look at another guide for a second if you actually do need some of the
    information I have left out.
         Hello all.  This is my walkthrough for the game Final Fantasy IV.  The
    game is very old, yet I felt it still lacked a certain type of walkthrough.  I
    was unable to find a walkthrough to my liking in my search of the internet, so
    I decided i'd write my own.  I have had some troubles while writing the guide,
    unforunately.  I started writing it in mid-2006 (so long after the game was
    released) but lost my personal copy of the walkthrough which was further 
    written that the guide on the net.  I was stupid enough to not have backup
    saves so I had to start my whole game again, using my own guide to play 
    though back to where the guide was written to.
         It has taken me until a few days before christmas, 2007, to get back to
    attempting to write this guide again.
         A note on the game I am playing.  I am playing the PAL version of Final
    Fantasy Anthology (bought in Australia).  FF Anthology contains both Final 
    Fantasy IV and V, on seperate discs.  So there may be some subtle differences
    between my version of the game and the one you, the reader, may have.  These
    differences most likely will not effect anything, but if it does, do not 
    hesitate to get in contact with me so I can make a note.
    ------------------------------[III. - Walkthrough]-----------------------------
         During the overall introduction I mentioned that I thought the internet 
    lacked a certain type of walkthrough.  Mainly, a walkthrough that would not 
    describe the freaking scenes to you.  "Cecil will follow Baigan, and then 
    Baigan will tell Cecil to wait" blah blah.  I would MUCH prefer it to simply 
    acknowlege there is a scene there, then continue with the guide.  "After the 
    scene has finished."  When I mention north,south,east,west,etc I am talking 
    simpy about up, down, left, right, etc.  Not actual compass directions.
         Okay, here's the layout I will use for the walkthrough.
    Area title
    List of items that will be found.
    My Levels
    The levels of my characters at this point of the game.  When a number is in
    brackets, that is the level that my characters were upon leaving the area.
    If a character name is in brackets, this means that the character either joined
    or left the party in the area - I will state whether they join or leave.
    A list of the bosses you will face in this area.
        Make sense? No? here is an example then
    My Levels
    Cecil - 13, (Rydia - 1)
    Soldier(3) - 30HP
    General - 240HP, ??? Gil, ??? Exp
        This will then be followed with directions.
        If it is an area you have never been to, I will most likely give
    directions to the items you can get before giving directions to advance the
    storyline.  Also, i like to put items in capital letters, as i find it to be 
       Anyway, that should make sense to you, so lets start the walkthrough!
    Castle Baron
    480 Gil
    My Levels
    Cecil - 10
        During the first scene you are thrust into a battle, you don't have to do
    anything though, just watch.  I count these 'forced' battles as part of the
    scene and will not mention them in the future, unless you actually have to
    control the battle.
        When the scene ends head down the stairs to your south.  On 1F, head to
    the bottom right and check the button behind the man standing there to open a
    secret door.  Claim the chests inside for 480 GIL, an ETHER1 and a TENT.
    Continue to the far left and up the stairs there.  Go along this short path and
    down another set of stairs.  Go south a little bit for a short scene.  Continue
    south.  Outside, go between the 2 buildings for another short scene.  Head
    straight up into the tower and go up the stairs.  Talk to the woman blocking
    your way and go up some more steps.  Go all the way left and into your bed for
    a much longer scene.  This scene contains the typical pre-playstation text
       After the scene you will be outside the castle, but before you go anywhere
    in the Overworld, head into the town (not the castle).
    Baron Village
    Potion x3
    Tent x2
    My Levels
    Cecil - 10, (Kain - 10[joins])
        Firstly, head all the way to the right in the Inn's alley and check the
    pot, it contains a POTION.  Head into the Inn and check the bottom pot in the
    room on your left for another POTION.  Head to the right and up to get to the
    back half of the Inn.  Check the swords on the wall here to open the secret
    door.  Claim the 3 chests inside, containing EAGLEEYE, a TENT and some
    EYEDROPS.  Exit the Inn.  there are 4 pots to the left of the house above the
    Inn, check the bottom of the 4 for a POTION.  Enter the house and check the
    left half of the shelf for an ETHER1 and check the pot in the top left for a
    MAIDKISS.  Exit the house and go to the top of the town where it is possible to
    enter the water.  Do so and follow the stream to the outside of the wall.  When
    you are blocked, tap X to find a TENT.  There is also a HRGLASS1 near the
    bottom right of this pool.  You will be blocked by it, so it isn't hard to
        This is also your first chance to rename your characters.  If you enter
    the small house above the item store and go down the stairs there is an odd
    looking guy on the right.  He is Namingway, and speaking to him will give you
    the chance to rename a character.  Anyway, buy any items you want from the item
    store and exit the town to the Overworld.
    My Levels
    Cecil - 10(11), Kain - 10(11)
        The enemies out here are absolutely pathetic and should be no problem at
    all.  Simply holding down the X button will yield a win with no damage taken
    (unless you are extremely unlucky).  I strongly reccomend that you do not run
    from ANY battles out here, as they are easy Exp and money.
        This is your first opportunity to save so do so.  There should be a bridge 
    in view near the top of the screen, cross it and head left to find another 
    bridge, cross it also.  Continue left, into the path created by mounatins.  
    Follow this path to the end where there is an entranceto Mist Cave.  I would 
    suggest that you get to level 11 before entering the cave, as it will make 
    proceedings easier, and it won't take very long at all.
    Mist Cave
    Potion x2
    My Levels
    Cecil - 11(13), Kain - 11(13)
    Mist Dragon - 475 HP, 200 Gil, 700 Exp
        This cave is exceedingly easy and shouldn't require much explanation to
    get through.  The enemies in here can be slightly harder than outside, but
    holding the X button will again ensure a flawless victory.  A quick note about
    SandMoth, let Kain attack these, as they are flying, and he will do a lot of
    extra damage.  So in the SandMoth/Larva combo of enemies, let Cecil take the
    Larva, and Kain take the SandMoth.  If you happen to run into 6 swordrats or
    whatever they are called, it might be a decent idea to use Cecil's dark attack
    once or twice to kill them all.  Remember, using dark will lower Cecil's hp,
    but you're not going to be using many potions throughout the game, so do feel
    bad about using some to replenish his hp afterwards.
        Head to the right, up the stairs, and to the left. Go past the 2 sets of
    stairs, and up.  When you go over the first set of stairs, you will get a
    mysterious message.  ignore it and continue up the next set.  Grab the chest
    for a POTION.  Go back down 1 set of stairs, and right across the bridge.  Head
    up the first set of stairs you get to and check the chest up there to get
    EYEDROPS. Head back down the steps.  Continue south and down 2 more stairs,
    follow this path left a bit then up to some more steps.  This chest contains a
    TENT.  Head back to the previous double-set of stairs.  Climb 1, and then head
    right.  There is a chest in plain sight here, it contains a POTION.  Go up and
    towards the exit now.  Before you get there though, you will get some more of
    the mysterious voice.  Ignore it yet again and continue on, select 'yes' when
    prompted to fight the first boss.
    Mist Dragon
    HP: 475
    Gil: 200
    Exp: 700    (*Note: Exp is divided among characters, so you will only get
                        350 Exp for this battle, as it will say.  that is 350 
                        each, 700 all up.)
        This boss really isn't too hard.  No first boss ever is.  Anyway, for this
    battle, have Kain use his Jump ability, while Cecil uses his standard attack.
    Kain cannot be hit while he is in the air, so this may mean Cecil will get
    pounded with attacks.  So have some potions handy just in case.
        After a few rounds, the dragon will lose shape and turn into mist. DO NOT
    ATTACK at this point, as it will result in no damage and it countering with a
    powerful attack, ColdMist, which damages both party members AND has an annoying
    message which explains why not to attack it.  Use this as an opportunity to
    heal if you need to.  All in all, an easy battle.
        Head out of the cave to the Overworld.
    On the overworld head towards the village, before you actually enter the
    village unequip Kain.  By the way, the enemies here are the strongest you've
    faced yet but shouldn't be a real problem.  You shouldn't even face an enemy
    between the cave and the town.
    My Levels
    Cecil - 13, (Kain - 13[leaves])
        There is absolutely nothing to do here, except for walk to the right a
    little to start a scene.
        After this scene you will be on the overworld, without Kain (that's why
    you unequipped him).  You may want to be a little more careful here without
    the second party member, so just head up to the desert.  In the middle of the
    desert is an oasis, and with the oasis comes a town, called Kaipo.
    My Levels
    Cecil - 13(14), (Rydia - 1(7)[joins])
    General + Soldier(3) - 240 HP(General) 30 HP(Soldier), 242 Gil, 869 Exp
        Step forward a bit to start a scene.  During this scene, you have to fight
    a boss.
    General + Soldier(3)
    General - 240 HP, 242 Gil, 869 Exp
    Soldier - 30 HP (each), 162 Gil, 471 Exp
        There are 2 ways to fight this battle.
        This being the more favourable, attack the General until he dies.  When he
    is dead, the soldiers will just attack eachother until they die.  Plus you will
    get the Exp from killing the General.
        If you don't want to do that, just kill each soldier, as the General will
    run after doing so.
        The specs listed after 'General' are what you will get when killing the
    General, whereas the specs listed after 'Soldier' is what you will get for
    defeating the soldiers.
        Following this battle Rydia will join your party.  Exit the Inn and head
    over the bridge to your right.  Check the top of the 2 pots here for an ETHER1.
        Head into the house in the top right of town.  Head down the hallway for a
    scene.  Talk to the man and woman in this house if you want to know what you'll
    be doing.  Before you leave, buy some items, and some gear for Rydia if you
    want to.  *Note on bows:  You have the chance to buy a bow for Rydia here, if
    you do, do not just put the bow in her good hand.  This is a mistake i made for
    a  long time.  Think about it, how do you use a bow?  You use your good arm to
    pull back the arrow.  So put the arrows in her good arm, the bow in her bad.
        Exit Kaipo and train for a while, Rydia is only level 1.  You will want
    her to have some decent hp before going to the water cavern.  A small tip, 
    Rydia takes damage very easily, so you may want to put her in the back row.  
    Once you've trained for a  bit, head to the top right of the desert, you will 
    find the entrance to the Water Cavern here.
    Water Cavern
    Potion x3
    Bomb x2
    Ether1 x2
    580 Gil
    Dark (sword)
    Hades (Helm)
    Hades (Gloves)
    Hades (Armour)
    My Levels
    Cecil - 14(16), Rydia - 7(12), (Tellah - 20[joins])
    Octomamm - 2400 HP, 500 Gil, 1200 Exp
        Head up and across the bridge.  Grab the 2 chests over here for a POTION
    and a MAIDKISS.  Go back to the entrance, but go left this time.  Cross a
    bridge, then get the chest on the bottom of the screen for a TENT.  Head across
    the to the north and talk to the crazy old man blocking your way.  This is the
    sage Tellah, and he will join your party after you speak to him.  He is level
    20, and a great attribute to your party.  His 'recall' ability can be very
    useful, but don't rely on it.  You may want to put him in the back row, as he
    is a spell caster.
        Go across the bridge to your right a little bit and get the chest here, it
    contains a BOMB.  Continue right across another bridge and go down the steps
    into the water.  Go up the series of small waterfalls just to your left and get
    the chest containing an IRONRING.  I would advice you to put this on Tellah.
    Head back down the waterfalls and continue left.  This may seem like a
    dead-end, but go into the middle of the waterfall to find a 'secret area'.  the
    chests here contain an ETHER2, X-POTION and a LIFE.  Pretty nifty, eh?  Head
    out of the secret area and make your way to the top left of the area (yes, you
    have to go all the way around).  Exit into the next area from here.
        Head straigh up and across the bridge, down the stairs, and into the
    water. Go to the left, and up some stairs to find a chest containing a POTION.
    Go back down to the water, but this time go to the bottom and up the stairs.
    Head to the left to get a chest containing an ETHER1.  Go back to the right a
    bit, and across the bridge.  Make your way to the left, then up and into a
    save room.  Stepping forward will instigate a scene, after which you will be
        Head straight up to the next room.  Go across the bridge and get the chest
    at the top of the screen for an ICEROD.  Equip this on whom you feel it should
    be and continue on down the 2 sets of stairs into the water.  Head right a bit
    and back onto dry land.  Head up through the door to get to B3F.  Go across the
    bridge, and then when faced with 2 choices, take the right bridge.  Get the 2
    chests containing 580 GIL and a BOMB.  Take the left bridge and go through the
    door when you get to it.
        In this room head straight to your left to find a secret path.  Follow it
    to the end where you will find a chest with a POTION in it.  And before you all
    email me about saying that was pointless, you are wrong.  Go back into the path
    and head up this time, go to the end where you will find a FEATHER.  This is a
    feather cap, and i would suggest you equip it on someone now.  Go back around
    and exit up the stairs.
        Go up a bit, and down the stairs to your left.  grab the 2 chests here for
    an ETHER1 and NOTUS. Cross the bridge to your right and head down the stairs
    to get chests containing an HRGLASS1 and DARK.  Getting DARK is very important.
    As it is actually a weapon for Cecil, and will take his attack up by 10.  Go
    back up the stairs and exit to the overworld.
        The overworld! It's been a while, hasn't it?  you may like to rest out
    here.  Why?  Because it's not over yet, you still have more Water Cavern to go
    through.  Yes, annoying isn't it? but it's got plenty of items to keep you
    motivated!  Go up into the next section.
        Before you do anything make sure you have got everything you want from
    Kaipo, as you will not be able to go back for a while after this.  Putting that
    aside, walk straight into the waterfall.  You are now stuck here :).  Go up the
    steps and follow the path to the bottom where you can go down some stairs and
    get 2 chests containing HADES and HADES.  These are gear for Cecil, one is a
    helm, while the other is just some gloves.  equip them both.  Go back up the
    stairs and continue across the bridge into a door.  On the other side, go to
    the right and cross a bridge.  get the 2 chests here for HADES and HERMES. Go
    up across the bridge, then down the stairs.  Go up a little and you will be
    able to see 2 flailing tenticles.  That is our boss.  Be sure you have all
    three hades items equipped on Cecil. Examine the tenticles.
    2300 HP, 500 Gil, 1200 Exp
        Don't be intimidated by the amount of HP, he really isn't that hard.  You
    have TWO spell casters now, make sure they're both in the back row.  Cecil
    should have pretty good defense and HP, so he'll be able to handle being in the
    front row.  Get Tellah to use Recall a lot if you feel up to it.  Getting a
    spell like bio is awesome, mass damage.  Rydia should summon Chocobo a lot, or
    use bolt1.  If you don't feel up to taking the risk of recall, just use bolt1
    with Tellah.  Cecil should just use his normal attack, it should deal a nice
    amount of damage.
        The amount of attacks he uses in the beginning is a little scary, but as
    you deal damage, he will lose tenticles, and his amount of attacks will drop
    dramatically.  So as long as you can get in a few Bolt1's and attacks before
    you die (which is very easy) you will have no problem.
        Step forward twice and you will be in the overworld again!  Save you game
    because you're finally finished with that place.
        Head around towards the desert, before you get to the desert there will be
    a short scene.  Before you enter the castle, unequip Tellah.  Enter it now.
    Damcyan Castle
    Holy x2
    My Levels
    Cecil - 16(17), Rydia - 12(14), (Tellah - 20[leaves]), (Edward - 5(11)[joins])
        Head into the castle.  Just keep going until you find a room full of
    opened chests, there is one here that isn't opened, get it for a TENT.
    Continue up the steps and walk forward a bit for a scene.  After the scene you
    will be in a hovercraft outside the castle.  Get out of it and enter the castle
    again.  You need to walk away from the castle, not enough to exit, but enough
    so you can walk around the side.  Walk around the right side of the castle and
    into the side door.  Examine the man here, and he will disappear, leaving you
    free to press the switch he was guarding.  The switch opens a secret door into
    an empty cell.  One of the walls between this cell and the one with the 2
    chests isn't real, find it and cross through it.  Open the chests for a
    CROSSBOW and a FEATHER.  Cross over into the next cell for a RUBYRING.  Head
    out and down the stairs.  Check the bottom left pot for a HOLY and the bottom
     right for another HOLY and the top right for BRASS.  The 'Brass' and 'Holy'
    are arrows, if you didn't know. Check the chests for a POTION, ANTIDOTE,
        Now, if you need to be healed, enter the main of the castle and go to the
    room the large scene took place in before.  Head to the right and check the pot
    to restore MP and then go to the left and check the pot to restore HP and get
    rid of any status problems you have.  You can now exit the castle.
        The first thing i done here was train, taking full advantage of the free
    healing.  I got Edward to level 11, because him at level 5 is extremely
        After training, get in your hovercraft and go north of the castle.  See
    the little rock looking things in the water? these are 'shallows'.  you can
    fly your hovercraft over them.  Make your way to the island right next to the
    one you are on now.  Head down to a little patch of desert.  The entrance to
    the Antlion cave is here.  Save and go in.
    Antlion Den
    Silk Web x2
    Potion x3
    Tent x2
    My Levels
    Cecil - 17, Rydia - 14(15), Edward - 11(13)
    Antlion - 1000 HP, 800 Gil, 1500 Exp
        Head over the bridge straight to your left and get the chest containing a
    SILK WEB.  Go down the stairs and under the bridge you just crossed to get a
    chest containing a POTION.  Head down the stairs below you and then go right
    until you see a bridge you can go under.  Go under it and get the chest for a
    POTION.  Head back down and go up the stairs on your right.  Go as far up as
    you can here to find a chest containing a SOFT.  Go back down the stairs and
    head to the left until you can go down.  Follow this path to find 2 chests
    which hold a TENT and a POTION.  Go back out of this path, all the way to the
    right, and down to the next area.
        Keep going down until you find a chest, open it for NOTUS.  Go into the
    door just left of here.  Inside there is a chest containing LAMIA.  This is a
    harp for Edward, so equip it on him straight away as it will take his attack
    power up by 10.  The Lamia confuses opponent it is used on, unlike the dreamer
    which puts them to sleep.  Exit the room and head around to your left.  Go up
    some stairs and go in the door.  Follow this path until you find another door
    and go in that one.  In here is a save point, and 3 chests containing a LIFE,
    ETHER1 and an EXIT.  If you need to be healed, then use a tent in the square
    thingo.  Head out and back to B2F.  See the chest just at the top of the
    screen, go around and get it for an HRGLASS1.  Head back down the stairs and
    to your left, across a bridge to get another SILK WEB from a chest.  Go back
    across the bridge and down 3 sets of stairs to your south.  Continue south
    into the Antlion Nest.  Prepare yourself because you are about to face a boss.
    If you need to heal, go back and use a tent.  Head down all the steps to start
    a scene, resulting in fighting the Antlion.
    1000 HP, 800 Gil, 1500 Exp
        This Antlion looks pussy compared to the one from FF9, but ya get that.
    Anyway, he IS a complete pussy.  The only thing you need to watch out for is
    his counterattack.  Rydia should use spells or summons, as he will not counter
    magic attacks.  Cecil can just attack, but keep in mind that who the couter
    hits is completely random.  You just just hope it hits Cecil the most, as he
    can take the damage easily.  Edward can sit around and heal if you need him to.
    But if you've leveled him up as much as I have he should be able to deal 20-40
    damage a round, so that's alright and you can just attack.  Overall, this is a
    very, very easy battle.
        The battle is followed by a short scene in which you will get the
    SANDRUBY.  Now you have what you need to help Rosa, so lets get back to her.
    You can use the 'Exit' item you got before if you are lazy, or Rydia's 'Warp'
    spell (this will probably take a lot of time and MP though), but I prefer to
    walk.  Head straight up and out of this room.  Instead of going all the way
    around though, head to your left.  Don't go up the stairs just go past them
    into the little block of land.  Go down from here.  This secret path goes down,
    right, up.  And eliminates having to go all the way around.  You should be able
    to get out on your own from here.

        Hop back in your hovercraft and head back over to Damcyan castle.  Heal up
    in here, then leave the castle and save your game.
        Now then, we have to get back to Kaipo, but we can't go back through the
    Water Cavern (thank god) as that path is being blocked.  So get in your
    hovercraft and head left of Damcyan castle.  Follow the desert until it splits
    and then follow it left.  Ride of the shallows here to get back to the desert
    at Kaipo.  Find Kaipo and go in.  And something cool here, you can fly over
    the oasis ;).  Go into the house Rosa is at (The top right one) and you will
    be prompted to select the SandRuby from your inventory.  Do so and a scene
    will start, during which Rosa will join the party.  During the scene you will
    also be thrust into a battle, but with Edward only.  Just keep attacking and
    you will win no problem, especially if you are keeping up with my levels.
    You will get a nice 800 Exp for Edward after this battle ;).
        After the scene you will have Rosa.  You will want Edward, Rosa and Rydia
    in the back row, so in the main menu, select 'Row' to give 3 slots in the back
    row and 2 in the front.  Rearrange your guys as you want.  Buy anything you
    need from the weapon/armour/item stores and then leave Kaipo.
        You will probably want to train Rosa a bit.  So we will yet again take
    advantage of the free healing at Damcyan.  Get back in your hovercraft and go
    back to Damcyan.  You can just train around the castle if you like, but I
    would suggest going back to the Antlion Den.  Or even better, go to Mt. Hobs
    and train there.  If you are simply training, don't go very far into Mt. Hobs.
    For those of you who don't know, that is where we are going next.  So do not
    advance the story anymore than you have to until you want to continue.
        Mt. Hobs is on the same section of land as the Antlion Den, but it is
    much further to the right.

        Head forward a few steps to trigger a scene.  Rydia will learn Fire1
    during this scene.  If you are only here to train, do not go any further than
    here.  You can find enemies here, so just wander around here training, and go
    back to Damcyan when you need to heal.  The enemies here are really quite weak
    but offer quite decent Exp.  Cocatris are capable of casting break, which
    petrifies a character.  Using Edward to attack these and confuse them is
    useful, as quite often they will cast break on one of your enemies and kill
    them instantly.  Watch out for back attacks though, as this will leave your
    3 weak members in the front row and open to attack.  Expecially watch out for
    back attacks with Gargoyle's, as they are capable of dealing up to 100 damage
    to one of these members, yet the same attack would only do 1 damage to Cecil.
    Gargoyle's can also cast 'Wind' which will lower your HP to 5.  Meaning, it
    instantly took my Cecil from about 340 hp to 5.  So watch out for these
        Enough about training, onto the actual mountain.  Go up the lot of stairs,
    and head into the first door you see.  Follow this path and you will find a
    save point, and some chests containing a TENT, POTION, SOFT and 960 GIL.
    Save if you want then head back to the door.  Continue right, and into another
    door.  Open the chest for HOLY (10 holy arrows).  Go up one of three sets of
    stairs and make sure you are healed.  When you get to the bottom of the second
    set, a scene is triggered.  You will be thrust into a boss battle here.
    Mom Bomb
    3200 Hp, 543 Gil, 2415 Exp
        This will be by far your hardest battle yet.  Fortunately you will have
    Yang in your party for this battle.  Have Rydia use her Chocobo summon, Cecil
    use his normal attack, Yang use his normal attack, Edward use his normal attack
    unless you want to use him to heal, and Rosa use aim.  Have Rosa keep all your
    hp high, because the Mom Bomb will explode eventually, and cause heavy damage
    to all your characters, making the rest of the battle a lot harder.  So make
    sure you keep all your hp topped up.  You may also want Rosa to cast 'Armour'
    on your weaker characters to give them some protection.  At a point during the
    battle the Mom Bomb will get pissed and turn into a huge fire cloud thingo.
    You will get a warning saying that it is going to explode soon after it does
    this.  Continue your attacking until it does explode.  You will probably want
    Rydia and Rosa to cast Cure1 on all, and maybe even have Edward use Heal after
    it explodes.  Because you are now facing 3 bombs and 3 GrayBomb's.  They can
    deal plenty of damage.  Top up your hp, then continue fighting until all 6 die.
    Be warned though, as these bombs can blow up also, and deal up to 120 damage to
    a character, so keep hp topped up at all times!  If you have kept levels with
    me it shouldn't be too hard.  But it can cause a lot of trouble.  The key is to
    keep your hp high.
        After the battle Yang will officially join your party.  He is only level
    10, yet is exceptionally powerful.  You will not need to spend time leveling
    him up just yet.  You are not out of danger just yet, so heal up and continue
    through the door to your north.  Go across the bridge to your east and follow
    the path to the end of the mountain.
        Now that you are out on the Overworld you have to find Fabul Castle.  Go
    the only direction you can, and when you get to a forest, follow it.  When the
    forest ends, head to your east.  You will soon see a bridge, and on the other
    side of the bridge is an island which Fabul Castle is on.

    (Rosa - 14[leaves]), (Yang - 11(13)[leaves])
        Go straight up and inside.  Once you are inside, head into the door on the
    right, it is the Weapon/Armour store.  Buy all the 'Demon' gear for Cecil if
    you can afford it.  And buy the claw of your choice for Yang.  Yang already
    has a Fireclaw, so you should probably get the other 2, for when you need to
    change the element you want to use.  If you havn't yet, sell all your old
    armour and weapons for some extra space in your inventory.  Now head over to
    the door on the left side.  This is the Inn/Item store.  Rest up, and continue
    further into the castle.  In the next room, head to the bottom and out that
    door.  Go into the left tower.  Check the left pot on the top for THORRAGE.
    Open the chests for a POTION, NOTUS and BOMB.  Go up the stairs to find
    Namingway in a bed.  Talk to him if you wish to change the name of any of your
    characters.  On the next floor up you can find Yang's wife.  Exit this tower
    and enter the right tower.  On the second floor check the bottom pot for
    BACCHUS.  On the next floor you can find a chest containing a TENT.  You can
    go out and train for a little if you feel a little unsure of how strong you
    are.  When you're finished, heal, unequip Rosa, and continue up to the throne
    room for a scene.  Select 'yes' when prompted.
        You will be forced into a battle with a Captain and 2 Fighters.  Some
    may class this as a Boss Battle, but I do not just kill them, they're rather
    easy, even with only Edward, Yang and Cecil.  After that battle, there will
    be another, against a Weeper, Imp Cap. and Water Hag.  After that, there is
    ANOTHER battle, it is a Captain with 2 Fighters again.  And another battle,
    just one gargoyle this time though.After that battle, there will be another,
    against a Weeper, Imp Cap. and Water Hag.  Yet again, another battle.  Two
    Fighters and a Captain...again.  After that, you must battle Kain.  You are
    absolutely no match for him.  Just keep attacking until you die.  you're
    meant to lose, so don't worry.
        After the scene, leave the crystal room.  Check the pot in the throne
    room for HERMES.  Go to the opposite side of the room and stand on the switch
    to open a secret door.  Follow the hidden path to a room with 3 chests.  Get
    these chests for a SILK WEB, DEMON (shield) and an ETHER1.  Equip Demon on
    Cecil straight away.  Leave the throne room and go and rest in the Inn.
    Upon entering the Inn, there will be a Scene.  During the scene you will get
    DEATH (sword) for Cecil.  Equip it on him as it is extremely powerful, taking
    his attack power up a lot, and even taking his defense up.  Unequip everyone
    else.  Exit the castle.  You will see the boat to the right of your screen.
    Go and board it.  There will be a large scene here.
        When you have control again, Cecil will be on his own, on a strange
    island.  Head to your right and enter the town.

        Uh-oh... Not the best place to end up.  They kinda hate you around here
    coz you stole their crystal.  Cool music though.  Ignore everyone and head
    straight for the building at the top of town.  Talk to the elder (the guy
    between the black and white mages).  During this scene, Palom and Porom will
    join your party.  Palom is a Black Mage, while Porom is a White Mage.  They are
    a lot more useful than you would think =).  Go to the weapon store, which is on
    the left of town.  Buy a flame rod for Palom, and the cure staff for Porom.
    Take note of Palom being left handed, and Porom right.  What hand they weild
    their weapon in effects their damage.  Also make sure the 2 of them are in the
    back row.  Enter the armour store now.  Buy each twin a Magus hat, Gaia Gear
    and and the Silver ring thingo.  Equip them with their new gear.  Now buy all
    the Paladin gear.  If you have to train for some extra gil for these, do so.
        A few tips on Palom and Porom.  They have rather low HP at this point
    so training them a little bit isn't a bad idea.  Their 'Twin' command will
    let them use an exceedingly powerful spell.  This might sound really good,
    but there are a few down sides with it.  It takes like many rounds to charge up
    and neither of them can do anything during this time.  Because of their low
    HP it is easy for one of them to die, and this ruins the whole spell.  So
    don't use it in a situation where it is likely that one of them will die.
    Also, it is not important to get levels for Cecil anymore, you will see why
    soon.  Namingway is in the Inn if you wish to rename Palom and Porom.  When
    you have bought all the Paladin gear, leave Mysidia.
        On the overworld, head to your right, and keep following the path.  When
    you get to a mountain surrounded by forest, look around the south side of the
    forest for a little circle gap in the forst.  Go to the center of it.  This
    is Chocobo Forest.  The white Chocobo will restore your MP, so use Poroms
    white magic to heal you, then examine the white Chocobo to get back your MP.
    There is a GYSAHL hidden somewhere in the grass, if you can find it, go to
    the top of the screen where it says 'I smell chocobo in the air." and use
    it.  Fat Chocobo will show up.  select 'Feed' to feed him items.  and 'Barf'
    to barf them up.  He is just an item bank.  He is my best buddy.  When you're
    done here, catch a yellow chocobo.  Go up a little bit on the Overworld and you
    will see a path into the mountain.  Go to it and get off of your chocobo.
    Enter Mt. Ordeals.

        Follow the path for a scene.  Continue along the path ignoring the stairs

    chest for another POTION.  Continue up the steps and into a door.  Go along
    the path and you will have a scene, after which Tellah will be back in your
    party.  Make sure Tellah is in the back row, and continue through the door.
    Head to your left and up some stairs to get an ETHER1.  Go up the ramp between
    the stairs and the door.  Then up some stairs, across a bridge, down a ramp
    and open the chest for another ETHER1.  Go back up and through the door.
    At the summit, make sure you cross the bridge on the right before going up the
    stairs.  Over the bridge is a save point.  Heal and save.  Head up the stairs

    Ghast - 200 HP (each), 100 Gil, 50 Exp
        This battle can be difficult.  You will want to kill off the 4 Ghasts
    first.  So focus all your fire power on them.  Except for Cecil.  Have Cecil
    attack Milon straight away, as his blade will do extremely little to the
    Ghasts.  Use Fire1 (or 2 if you have it) on the Ghasts, while Porom heals.
    When all 4 ghasts are dead, you may want to heal up.  Make sure all of your
    characters are on high HP when Milon actually dies.
        After that battle, go back to the save point.  Use a tent and save before
    continuing along the bridge, and to another boss battle.
    Milon Zombie
    3523 HP, 2500 Gil, 3600 Exp
        This is a back attack, so the very first thing you should do is have a
    character use the 'row' ability (press left in the command menu).  When your
    characters are back to their rightful place you can start attacking.  Have
    Tellah and Palom cast fire magic, while Porom heals and Cecil just uses normal
    attacks.  Milon Z. hits heavy, so you may need to use Tellah to heal sometimes.
    If Palom has Fire2, this is EXTREMELY powerful.  Dealing up to 1200 damage.
    So use it as often as possible.  Milon can poison via his attacks.  So have
    Tellah cast Esuna on a poisoned Character.  This really isn't such a hard
        Walk into the middle of the thingos for a scene.

        Not really a boss battle, but I will count it as one.  It is nearly
    impossible to lose, although the first time I played through the game i lost it
    many times.  All you have to do is Parry.  Parry until the battle ends.
        After this battle Cecil becomes a Paladin, Tellah remembers all his spells
    and he also learns Meteo.  The problem here is that Cecil reverts all the way
    back to level 1.  Although this isn't really a problem, as he will gain levels
    extremely quickly.  Equip the paladin gear on Cecil before moving.  I reccomend
    training him up to around level 20 before going back to Mysidia.  Just heal mp 
    in the chocobo forest then use white magic to heal your mp.  Cecil can now use 
    basic white magic spells, too.  Tellah's spells are strong, but he has very 
    little mp so they're almost useless.  You can kill your party members except
    Cecil when he's strong enough if you want him to get all of the exp.  When 
    going back to Mysidia, get on a yellow chocobo to avoid battles.

    hard.  Heal after he kicks if you need to.  After the battle Yang will join
    the party.  During the scene you will get BARONKEY.
        When you have control again, head over to the weapon and armour joint.
    Unlock it with your new key and go in.  Buy some new gear for Yang.  While
    in here, go to the bottom right of the store and go down and right.  This path
    takes you around the back of the counter.  Open the chests for 2000 GIL and
    THORRAGE.  Exit the store and go all the way to the left of town.  Open the

        Some people think it's really hard down here.  Here is my advise.
                       P + B = Everything dies
                 When P is Palom/Tellah, and B is Bolt2 on all.  The exception to
    this rule is the Elecfish, it in fact gets health back.  Just kill these any
    way you please.  Nothing down here is exceptionally hard.
        Make sense?  Just use Bolt2 a lot and everything dies =p.  Cecil's white
    magic is very powerful, so use him as a healer outside of battle if you need
    to.  Because you want him to attack IN battle.  Equipping Yang with a bolt
    claw or two might be a good idea, just don't attack the elecfish with him.
        Anway, just follow the path down until it splits.  Take the path going
    down to find 3 chests.  Open them for a HIPOTION, ETHER1 and THORRAGE.  Go back
    around and go up this time.  Follow the path to the next room.
        This room is full of hidden paths.  Go into the water and follow it down.
    Follow it into the section below where you entered and open the chest for a
    HRGLASS1.  Go down again, and get the SILK WEB here.  Go back up to the top
    and go right through 2 sections.  Climb the stairs in this section onto the
    little island to get HERMES.  Go to the top right of this area.  See the rock
    formation that implies there is a fake wall there?  Go through that section
    of wall.  Then go up and into the next area.
        Just follow the path here.  But when you get to the top of the stairs go
    left and through the secret path to get the ETHER1.  Exit the area into B1F
    after this.
        Enter the door on the left.  This is a save room, but before you save...
    See the 4 rocks at the right of the room?  Well, see the gap above them?
    Hidden pathway.  Go through it to get ANCIENT (sword).  It is a sword for
    Cecil...But it seems to be weaker than Legend, i don't know what the point
    of it is.  Anyway, save your game and continue out of the room.  Go
    to your right and up the steps, exit out the door.

    Left/Right arms - 444 HP, 0 Gil, 10 Exp
        Your focus here is the body.  It may be tempting to attack the arms, but
    there isn't much point, as they just regenerate.  You may want to use the twins
    to use their cool power thing to take care of them for a while.  If you wish
    to deal some heavy damage to the body before it is to late, use Tellah instead
    of the twins to hit him with Bio or a level 3 spell or something.  The body
    will cast wall on itself after being hit with a spell, so you only get one
    choice.  Cecil and Yang should attack normally.  It's wall spell will wear
    off eventually, but until then, use Tellah to cast wall on someone and then
    use a spell on that character.  The spell will bounce of them and hit your
    enemy, completely ignorning his wall.  Use Porom/Tellah to heal and the battle
    should be over soon enough.  After the body dies, try to kill the arms as
    quickly as possible, or they will detonate and cause some heavy damage to a
    random character.
        Go back to your bed and heal up.  Go to the bottom right of the room and
    up the stairs here.  Go along the walkway and down some stairs.  Hit the switch
    in this room that was being guarded previous to you leaving.  Follow the secret
    path to a room with 6 chests.  Open them for 2 ETHER1's, 2 UNIHORN's and 2
    LIFE's.  Continue out into the courtyard and into the tower.  Open the 4 chests
    here for 2 HERMES and 2 BACCHUS.  Go down the steps and check the second pot
    for an ELIXIR.  Go back up the stairs, and up the next set.  Open the 2 chests
    for 2 HIPOTION's.  Go up the next set of stairs and open the chests for 2 TENTs
    and an ETHER1.  Check the pot just under the stairs for another ETHER1.  Now
    head to the Throne room.  Make sure you are ready for a boss battle before you
    go in though.  When inside, make sure Yang has a bolt claw equipped and then
    talk to the king.
    5312 HP, 4000 Gil, 5500 Exp
        Okay, he's the 'devil of water' right? so use bolt magic! simple.  He
    isn't very hard.  I've said that about every boss so far, havn't I? Oh well.
    Cecil should just normal attack, and heal maybe.  Porom should heal, Tellah and
    Palom should use Bolt2/3 and Yang should use power.  Simple.  He has a big
    powerful attack though.  "Wave" can deal up to 170-ish to every character.
    So watch out for that one.  When he retreats into his shell, you can use it as
    a chance to heal.  But if you want, just keep attacking him until he dies, like
    I did.
        After this rather long scene, you will no longer have Palom or Porom.  It
    is a very great loss, they are like my favourite characters =(.  But you get
    Cid (...joy).  At least you have your own airship now!!!.  First off, land the
    ship and enter Castle Baron again.  Unlock the doors and go into the castle.
    Go up the stairs on the right and make your way to the northeast tower.  Go
    down the stairs into the basemen tand check the pots for an ELIXIR.  Go down
    the next lot of stairs.  Go along this bit here for a Scene.  
        After that, make your way out of the castle and head into Baron Village and
    buy some armour for Cid.  Resting at the Inn might be a good idea too.  Head 
    out of the village and get into your airship.  Now that we have an airship, we 
    should go do some stuff before we advance the storyline.  Head to the village
    of Mist.

    check the grass here for another BOMB.  Head into the top left house and go
    through the fireplace to get to a secret room with 3 chests chich contain a
    TIARA, CLOTHES anda RUBYRING.  There is another secret room if you continue
    right through this secret room.  The second secret room contains a CHANGE (rod)
    There is nothing of any worth in the weapon/armour stores.  But Namingway is in
    the Inn if you want to rename Cid.  That's it for now, leave town.
        If you go straight south from Baron, you will find Agart, enter the town.
        There isn't much to do in this village.  Go around to the left until you
    find some long grass.  at the bottom right of this grass is BOREAS.  In the
    bottom left houses top floor you can look through a telescope if you want.
    Leave the village, time to go to Mythril Village.  Head left from Baron until
    you see some islands.  Mythril Village is on one of these islands just to your
    north a bit.

    5000 Gil
        Yeah...heaps of midgets and frogs and pigs and stuff.  Great.
        Head up and right a bit into the grass, grab the MYTHRIL (staff) from
    here.  Go around and up past the weapon shop.  Then to the right patch of
    grass.  grab the MYTHRIL (dagger) from here.  Go to the grass directly behind
    the weapon shop now, and grab the 5000 GIL from here.
        Go into the weapon store and buy the Mythril hammer for Cid, and the
    Mythril sword for Cecil.  Go to the armour store and buy the Mythril helm,
    armour and gauntlets for Cecil and Cid.  And the Mythril shield also for Cecil.
    I expect you to be broke after this, and probably can't even afford the second
    Mytrhil Armour.  Train around until you have all this gear.  If you're going to
    train I would suggest putting Cid in the front row.
        Now it's time to go to Troia Village.  Head west from Kaipo to find a
    whole heap of forest.  In the northern part of this forest you will find a
    castle and a town.  Land the airship in the one little square provided and
    enter the town.
    Troia Village
    1000 Gil
    Get in the water and follow it around to the back of the town.  get out and go
    left through the trees and into a grassy area.  In this area you can find
    1000 GIL, ILLUSION, ETHER1, ETHER2.  That's all for now, unless you want to go
    to the pub.  in the pub, you can buy a 'pass' and use it to go to a show
    thingo.  This pub is just one big brothel.  Time to go to Troia Castle.
    Troia Castle
    Tent x2
    HiPotion x2
    Ether1 x2

        Enter the castle.  Go to the left side and exit.  Follow this path into
    the next building.  Edward is in here, talk to him to get the TWINHARP.  Exit
    this room, and go back into the castle.  Enter the door opposite and then go
    into the next building.  Go down the centre stairs and get BACCHUS from the top
    right pot.  Go down the right stairs and stand on the switch.  This opens the
    far left door.  Go in to open the next one.  Before going to the next one open
    both the chests here for 2 TENT's.  When you exit the third door will open.
    Go into the second door to open the fourth.  Open these 2 chests for
    2 HIPOTION's.  Go to the next chests for 2 ETHER1's.  And the next 2 for
    2 RUBYRING's.  You are done here, exit the castle.
        Now would be a good time to do some training.  So train up for a while.
    Train until Cid is at least level 24, he should have over 1000 HP then.  So
    all your characters, except Tellah, should have over 1000 HP.  I bet you feel
    tough.  By the way, the levels I suggest or whatever in here aren't minimum
    levels or anything.  If anything they are total overkill.  You don't need to
    keep up with my levels if you don't want to.
        From Troia, go north a while until you find a Chocobo forest.  This is
    actually the Chocobo Village.  It has black, flying Chocobo's as well.  Go to
    the bottom right, just above the area you can't get to you should be able to
    find a hidden path goin right, then down.  Search the grass for a GYSAHL.  once
    you are healed, catch one of these Black Chocobo's.  If you fly straight to
    the right you will see where we need to go, but the mountains are blocking us
    right now, so go around them.  You've got to land the chocobo in the forest, so
    do that, and then save.  Inside this cave, you can't have anything metal
    equipped.  So either go back to Troia and buy non-metal weapons, or just do the
    stupid thing (and what i done) and take off all your weapons and armour and 
    just run from every battle you get in to.

        Go right, all the way across the bridge and get the chest for a HIPOTION.
    Go back halfway along the bridge and go down.  Follow this path to the last
    block and get the UNIHORN from the chest, then go down the stairs.
        On B2F go up, then left and open a chest for an ETHER1.  Go back to the
    right and cross the bridge.  Go in the door on your right and open the chests
    for an ETHER1 and 2000 GIL.  Exit the room and head all the way to your left
    and down the stairs.
        Now on B3F go left and into the door.  Save your game in here and then
    exit.  Go down across the bridge and into the room on the block.  Open the 3
    chests for a HIPOTION, SILK WEB and HRGLASS1.  Exit the room and go left and
    across the bridge.  Go up between the rock thingos and into the door.  Open the
    chest in here for FAIRY (claw) for Yang.  Go down the stairs on the bottom
        Now we're on B4F, it isn't all that bad having no weapons, is it?  Head
    across the bridge on your left.  Then go across the bridge on your right and
    go in the room.  Save in here, then leave.  Go back across the 2 little bridges
    and then go up.  Go around the door thingo and get the chest for an EXIT.  Go
    back around and into the door.  In the crystal room, go forward and talk to the
    Dark Elf to start a fight.  In this fight, just don't do anything.  Don't waste
    any MP or anything, you are meant to lose.  After the scene, you can equip your
    swords again (yay!) so do so.  Get ready for a boss fight and talk to the Dark
    Elf again.

        Yes, he has a lot of HP.  But remember how he is weak to metal?  Well,
    just thrash him.  He's simple.  His attacks are really weak now that you have
    armour.  Just try not to waste a heap of MP, especially from Tellah.  If you
    need to heal, use Cecil.  His 'Wind' Attack is still a problem though, as it
    will just take your HP down to under 10 in most cases.  He can also use an
    attack that will turn you into a pig.  Use Esuna or DietFood to cure this.
    When you've dealt enough damage, he will turn into Dark Dragon.
    Dark Dragon
    3927 HP, 5000 Gil, 6000 Exp
        Keep your HP high.  Have Tellah use level 3 Cure whenever it uses it's
    breath attack.  If Tellah isn't strong enough (like mine wasn't) the Dragon can
    kill him in one attack.  You will have to use a Life to get him back, as he is
    the only character here than can revive.  I had a lot of trouble here because
    the Dragons first attack killed Tellah, then as soon as i revived him, it used
    it's breath and killed him again.  This also left Cecil dangerously low on HP.
    I revived him again, and the Dragon Used it's breath again, leaving Tellah
    and Cecil dead.  Then it attacked Yang, and then he was dead.  It was all up
    to Cid... I loaded my save again.  This is the first boss where i won't say
    that is he easy.  He's a pain in the ass.  I probably should have trained more
    but...i didn't.  hehe.  Just keep trying until he dies.  The second time around
    i was more careful about my HP, and i found him terribly easy =p.
    |I got an email about this fight, showing me an easier way to defeat Dark D.|
    |Dark D. is able to be "stop"ed.  Have Tellah cast stop on him whenever he  |
    |is not stopped anymore, and this battle will be a breeze.  Using this      |
    |method, that difficulty of this battle would be about 1/10.                |

        Examine the crystal to recieve EARTH (crystal).  Exit the Crystal room and
    have Tellah use his 'exit' spell a heap to get out.  Get back on your chocobo
    and it will fly to Chocobo Village.  heal up using the white chocobo and then
    catch another black chocobo and fly back to Troia Castle.

        Go straight up all the way to the clerics room and there will be a scene.
    Exit the room to the south and exit via the east door.  Go into the next door
    then down the left set of stairs.  Talk to the guard here.  Go through the
    secret passage and down the stairs to find a whopping 18 chests!!! Open them
    more FIRE (arrows), BOLT (arrows), ICE (arrows), more ICE (arrows), ECHONOTE,
    AG APPLE, ETHER2, ETHER1, REMEDY and finally, another HIPOTION.  Whew.  That
    was fun.  Go to Edward to view a scene.  Note on Ag Apple:  It will take the
    max HP of a character up by 100.  But do not use it on anyone but Cecil at
    this point in the game!  As none of the other characters will be your final
    characters.  You can wait til later to use it.
        Go and climb into your airship to get another scene.  After the scene

        First, go to the top left corner to get FLAME (armour) for Cecil.  Equip
    it straight away.  Marion enemies on this floor can drop a 'Silence' staff.
    Equip this in Tellah as soon as you get it, as it will take his attack to near
    60.  Try to get 2 of these as they are the most powerful staff in the whole
    game.  Head to the top right to find the door to the next floor.  Just a quick
    note here - This is a good place to train, the enemies give you a lot of exp
    and gil, and you can just go to the bottom left and return to Troia to heal.
        Go down and make the first left, then the first down, then right, then
    the first down then head left and make the first up.  Keep going up to find
    a chest containg...Monsters! The monster is a FlameDog, and he is really
    quite tough.  I didn't bother healing while fighting him and Cecil and Tellah
    were dead when i won.  But it was worth it.  Behold, FLAME (sword).  Equip
    this on Cecil.  Head to the next floor.  You can see the door to it from where
    you get the Flame sword.
        Just follow the path through this section, anyway you go will get you to
    the next floor.
        Follow the path and make the first up you can.  Go through the left door
    to find a chest containg HELLCLAW.  I would suggest equipping this on Yang.
    Follow this path to the left and down to find FLAME (shield).  Equip this on
    Cecil.  Return through the door.  This was about the time i went "Oh shit,
    I'm running out of MP".  So just be careful.  We'll get to a save point soon.
    Go into the door on your right and grab GAIA (hammer) for Cid.  Exit and go
    into the NEXT door.  Open the chest here for WIZARD (robe).  Head to the
    bottom and follow the path right, to the door to the next floor.
        Head down a bit, and into the door.  A save point!  Use a tent and save.
    Exit the save room and head left toward the next door.  Get ready for a boss

    Mindy - 2590 HP, 3000 Gil, 2500 Exp
        Just use physical attacks in this battle, it's easy.  Take out the middle
    one first so it doesn't heal anymore.  Take out he front one next.  Then the
    back one.  Battle over.  Probably THE easiest boss battle you've had yet.
        Go back and save and heal at the save point.  Remove all the items from
    Tellah.  Now go through the door the Magus Sisters were guarding.  Go up over
    the bridge and watch the scene.  No more Tellah.  Speak to Kain to continue
    the scene.  Rosa and Kain will join your party.  Kain has good gear, but Rosa
    has crappy gear.  Equip her with whatever Tellah had on.  But put on the Tiara
    we found a long time ago.  I put Yang in the back row here, just because he
    doesn't have great defense.  Prepare for a boss battle, and try to exit the 
    8636 HP, 5500 Gil, 9000 Exp
        Valvalis has the power to turn herself into a tornado sort of thing.  Your
    attacks are weaked while she is in this state, and she will continually cast
    wind (takes your characters to critical hp) and Glare (gradual petrify).  So in
    order to make her revert to her normal self, have Kain jump at her.  She is 
    much less annoying in her normal form, but she will turn into the tornado a 
    LOT.  Have Rosa cast cure3 (she has lots of mp, woot!) to heal wind, and have
    either her or Cecil cast esuna to cure the gradual petrify.  Cid and Cecil 
    should attack normaly, Yang use power and Kain jump.  Rosa, of course, should
    be the healer, and she is the best damn white mage i've seen from any FF game.
    I love Rosa :).  With her incredible healing prowess, this battle shouldn't be
    too difficult.
        During the next scene you will recieve MAGMA.  Leave Baron and head south
    in your airship to Agart.
        Enter Agart and go straight to the building section in the middle of town.
    Examine the well and drop the Magma down it.  Exit Agart, get into your airship
    and press X while over the big black crater.  Watch the following Scene.
    Congrats, you've made it to the underworld.  It really isn't that big a deal,
    but i feel like making a fuss over it =D.  Anyway, just save your game, then go
    into the castle right next to you.

        Unequpping Cid might be a decent idea, then go to the throne toom.  Cid 
    will leave the party.
        You will have to fight 3 Cal's and 3 Brina's here.  The Brina's (front) are
    much weaker than the Cal's so take them out.  Then take out 2 Cal's, and have
    Rosa heal everyone before killing the last one.  If you're too slow they will
    unite to form one big doll.  "Calbrina".
    5315 HP, 5000 Gil(extra for each little doll killed), 12000 Exp(ditto)
        I am so sick of all these boss battles.  Anyway...Calbrina is a pussy,
    fight like any normal battle, and heal when you need to.
        Watch the scene for a bit...ANOTHER boss fight.  COME ON!!!
    ???? HP, 11000 Gil, 15000 Exp
        Golbez will cast Hold Gas on your entire party, making you immobile.  Then
    to piss you off even more, he will summon Shadow, who will then crush your
    entire party, except for Cecil.  Just before Cecil dies, Rydia shows up and
    saves him. Yay.  Now the real battle starts.  First of all, bring Rosa to life
    and get her HP up.  From there, have her revive characters, and heal them.
    Rydia can no longer do white magic, but she rocks anyway.  Have her summon
    Titan while Rosa heals, Cecil attacks, Kain jumps and Yang attacks.  Rydia's
    Titan absolutely crushes Golbez, so this battle isn't all that hard.  Just get
    your guys alive again and it's easy.  The hardest part is getting your party
    alive in time for them all to get Exp.  I couldn't do it.  Kain and Yang were
    still dead when he died for me.
        Rydia officially joins the party after the battle.
        Exit the throne room and head to your right, and up the stairs.  Buy
    everything you want from the weapon/armour stores, and sell what you don't
    want.  I would reccomend the FireSpear for Kain from the weapon store.  And
    from the armour store i would reccomend the Flame armour and shield for Kain.
    Wizard hat for Rosa (Put the Tiara on Rydia) and get Wizard armour for Rydia.
    Also get Rune Gauntlets for both of them.  Go between the 2 stores to get to
    the pub.  On the bottom right there is a secret path to the Developer's room.
    You can get into a battle with Takahasi in here.  You can only do 1 damage to
    him, and his normal attack will do 9999 damage to you.  But he RARELY attacks
    and just says "You wanna die?" a lot.  If you want to have any chance at
    killing him you will have to poison him, as this will do like 8000 damage for
    every 'poison damage'.  He has like 65000 HP and you only get 5 Exp for killing
    him.  There are heaps of useless enemies down here.  If you go down the steps
    and check the left side of the bookcase, you can get SMUT.  Exit to the Weapon
    store and go back down the bottom left stairs.  Go up the stairs on the left
    this time.
        You should now be at the Inn.  Check the pot left of the counter for
    5000 GIL.  Take the stairs on the left hand side.  Go up the stairs in this
    room.  There is a BACCHUS in one of the pots at the bottom.  Go up the next set
    of stairs.  Go to your right and open the chest.  The chests in this room are
    connected by hidden paths, and the paths aren't hard to find.  The chests
    contain a HIPOTION, BLKBELT, ETHER1 and an ELIXIR.  Go down 2 sets of stairs
    and exit through the door to the south.  Go to the right and enter the next
    tower.  In this room, go to the top and open the chest for DWARF (axe).  go up
    the stairs and go through the secret passage at the bottom and check the pots
    for a BACCHUS.  Go up the stairs and open the chests for POWER (ring),
    HRGLASS2, ELIXIR and ETHER1.  Head down 3 sets of stairs to be back at the
    weapon/armour stores.  Head down the stairs in the top left and check the pots
    above you for 3 GYSAHLS.  You can summon Fat Chocobo on the carpet to your
    left.  Talk to the far left guard and he will open a door for you.  Go through
    the door.  Follow the path and take the first down you can.  Then take the
    first right.  Open the chests here for 3 CABINS.  Now head to the bottom left
    and up the stairs.  In the Dwarven base there is a Pot on the far left side on
    it's own.  Check this pot to restore HP/MP.  The exit to the south leads
    outside.  So it's a perfect place to train.  Train a lot here, healing when you
    need to.
        Go in a northwest direction and you should eventually find some desert like
    places.  Go straight north from here and when you see some tanks, go right and
    around the mountain.  Enter the big towers.

        You can find the Marion enemy in this tower, so it might be worth it trying
    to get a Silence staff or two if you don't have them yet.  You can also kill
    the puppets it has and let it summon more.  Just kill each summoned puppet over
    and over, you get gil and exp for each one you kill.  
        Run up the stairs and then head to the right.  Open the chest for an 
    ETHER1.  Head over to the left side of the room and open the chest for ICE
    (arrows).  Go down and open another chest for more ICE (arrows).  Go up into
    the door in the top of the room to get to 2F.
        Open the chest on your left for a BANDANNA.  Equip this on Yang if you've
    nothing better.  Head down and go into the room at the bottom.  Open the chest
    to fight an Alert.  For this fight you will recieve an ICESPEAR.  This spear
    is much stronger than his current FireSpr, so equip it immediately.  It will 
    also help out a lot against the flamedog enemy.  But it makes an annoying noise
    when you attack.  Exit the room and enter the room to the northeast of you.
    Open the chest to fight another Alert.  You will recieve an ICEBRAND for this.
    Equp this on Cecil immediately for the same reasons you equipped the IceSpear
    on Kain.  Exit the room and enter the door a little to your northwest to get 
    to 3F.
        Open the chest to your left for a CATCLAW for Yang.  Head right and then
    down and open the chest for a LIFE.  Enter the door just above you and open
    the chest on your left for ARCHER.  I equipped this on Rosa, giving her 48
    attack.  Go to the right and open the chest for a NOTUS.  Head back through
    the door.  See the chest on the right?  Go up and around and open it for a
    HIPOTION.  Go up and follow the path to the end.  Go through the door to 4F
        Enter the door on your left and save your game, use a tent if you need to.
    Exit the room and go up the path to your right.  When you're across the bridge
    go into the door and open the chest to fight another Alert.  You will recieve
    ICEARMOR for this.  Equip it on Cecil or Kain.  Exit the room and head south
    from here and enter the door on the left.  Open the chest to fight yet anoteher
    Alert.  You will recieve an ICESHLD.  Equip this if you want to.  Exit the
    room.  The door on your right contains northing so go back north and over the
    northern bridge.  Enter the door to get to 5F.
         Head down and around to reach the chest on your right, it contains a
    BOREAS.  Return back to the bottom and head all the way east.  Head up and
    around to get to the chest containing a HIPOTION.  Head to the north and 
    through the door to get to 6F.  Go west and in the door to get to 7F.
        Go to the east and into the door to find a save point.  Save and heal up
    if necessary.  Exit the room and head back west, then south.  Grab the chest
    on your left for an ETHER2.  Head right and enter the door up to 8F.  Follow
    the path, but be ready for a boss battle before you cross the bridge.  Cross
    the bridge and watch the scene.
    Dr. Lugae
    Dr. Lugae - ???
    Balnab - ???
    Balnab-Z - ???
        Not hard at all really.  Balnab is exceedinly weak.  Simpy have Kain jump,
    Cecil attack, Yang attack or power, Rydia do whatever, and Rosa do whatever,
    healing when you need her to (IF you need her to).  Once Balnab is dead, you
    will be in battle with Dr. Lugae for a little.  Just pick away at him for a bit
    and he will turn into Balnab-Z.  Balnab-Z can hit hard, but will probably only
    attack one before he uses the detonate move.  this will certainly kill one of
    your characters (dealing in excess of 3000 to my Cecil).
    Tiny scene.
    Lugaborg - ???
        This is the "real" boss of here.  Once you are fighting Lugaborg, he will
    probably start the fight with "Poison" which sucks.  It will poison all of your
    characters.  If you wait long enough Lugaborg will heal you of it.  Lugaborg has
    an attack called "Beam" which seems to hit rather randomly.  Dealing 200 to
    Yang, and then 1700 to Kain.  Lugaborg's hp isn't very impressive thankfully,
    as he can hit fairly hard.  I had Cecil healing, Rosa healing/reviving, Rydia
    summoning Titan, Kain jumping and Yang using power.  Cecil was dead at the end
    of the fight dude to a very strong beam from Lugaborg.
        For winning this battle you will recieve the TOWERKEY.  Head all the way 
    down to 5F.  Go to the bottom of the room, then up through the middle section.
    Use the TowerKey on the door and then remove all of Yang's equipment.  Enter
    the door and fight a VERY easy battle.  After a scene, Yang is no longer in
    your party.  Make your way all the way down to 1F.  There will be a scene
    when you start heading down the stairs.

         Fly north and enter Baron Castle.  Go up into the building, then head east
    and up the stairs.  Follow the path until you see 2 guys dressed in blue, talk
    to them.  After talking to them your airship will now be able to pick up the
    hovercraft that you used much earlier in the game.  Fly north-ish to Damcyan
    and then east to Mt Hobs, where you left the hovercraft.  When the ships circle
    shadow is over the hovercraft, press X to pick it up.  Fly back to Baron, but
    don't enter it.  From Baron head southwesterly and you will find an island
    that the Tower of Babil is sticking out of.  On the south of this island is
    a castle.  Land next to it and enter.

        Go straight north into the main castle.  Go north to just below the start
    of the stairs and go straight right through the wall.  Open the chest for a
    HIPOTION.  Go north twice into the Throne Room.  Go west through a secret
    passage in the northwest corner.  Open the two chests for a UNIHORN and an
    ALARM.  Now go back to the throne room and do the same except in the northeast
    corner to get a SOFT, MAIDKISS and a CABIN.  Go back to the throne room and
    leave south 3 times to get back to the castle courtyard.
        Take the west path and enter the West Tower.  When you enter, go south
    exactly two steps and then press right to get to a chest containing monsters.
    For defeating the monsters you will get SLEEP (sword).  Go up the stairs to 2F
    and check the bottom pot in the upper left to get a BACCHUS.  Go down through
    the gap in the pots at the bottom and go right.  Check the pot you can only get
    access to from the back to get another BACCHUS.  Continue on to the two chests
    and open them for 10,000 GIL and MUTE arrows.  Go to the very west of this
    room and then go down to find the steps to another chest.  Open it for a
    KAMIKAZE.  Exit the West Tower and enter the East Tower.
        Go above the northwestern pillar and head west to find a secret passage.
    Open the chest for a COFFIN.  Head up the stairs to 2F.  Hit the switch on the
    right side of the stairs, and then go through the new door (go around the
    stairs).  Check the pot on the right for a HERMES and open the two chests on
    the left for an EXIT and an ETHER1.  Open the chest on the right below the hole
    for a CABIN.  Head right from the pots to find a secret passage in the 
    northwest corner.  Open the chest to find some monsters.  You will recieve a 
    BLOODSPR for defeating them.  Equip it on Kain immediately.  Go ahead and drop 
    down the hole, which I know you've been dying to do, and open the chest to find
    an HRGLASS2.  Go south from here to end up in the Basement.  Follow the path 
    and open the two chests on the left for two ETHER1's.  Open the chest on the 
    right to fight some monsters.  You will recieve an AG APPLE for winning.  
    Follow the path to the end to exit the castle.
        If you need to, get in your airship and head to a town to rest at their
    inn.  If not, hop into the hovercraft and cross the shallows to get to a cave
    that was inaccessable without the hovercraft.

        Whatever you do, do NOT attack any skeleton-monsters with Kain if he is
    using the BloodSpr.  It will heal them and damage him a LOT.
        Go through the wall to the east and open the chest for a SHURIKEN.  Head
    east through another wall and open the chest for a REMEDY.  Go down the steps
    into the water and follow it until there are some steps on the right side.  Go
    up the steps and open the chest for a VAMPIRE.  Go across the two bridges to
    your right and then go all the way west and then south down the stairs to get
    to B2F.
        This is pretty much a town, so no monsters here.  Open the first door to 
    find an inn and item shop.  Enter the second door for Weapons and Armor.  Buy
    'Black' armour for Rydia and IceArmor/IceShld for Kain/Cecil if either of them
    doesn't have it (My Kain didn't).  From the weapon store, buy poison arrows
    for each of your archers (Rydia and Rosa in my case) and the 'Archer' bow for
    whichever one doesn't have it.  Exit the store and enter the door in the 
    southwest.  Check the pots here to find two POTION's.  Exit the room and go up
    the stairs in the northwest to get to the Pass to Babil.
        Open the chest for an ETHER1 and continue along the path to find another
    chest containing a TENT.  Head south through the obvious secret passage and
    open the chest for a HIPOTION.  Go back through the passage and exit through
    the stairs to the north.  Follow the path and when it splits, go northeast and
    up the steps to find a chest containing a KAMIKAZE.  Go back down the steps
    and go right just below the semi-circle of land next to you to find a secret
    passage.  Open the chest for a SHURIKEN.  Go back through the wall and then
    south and down the stairs to the next area.
        Open the three chests for a HIPOTION, CABIN and another HIPOTION.  Go right
    through the wall just above the two chests to get to two more chests containing
    two ELIXIR's.  Go back through the wall and continue south, right and the left
    to get a SILK WEB.  Go right and open three chests containing an HRGLASS2, and
    two LIFE's.  Go north to the next room.  Go west to find a chest containing a
    SOFT.  Head back east and go into the door to find a saving place, so save and
    use a tent/cabin if you need to.  Still in the save room, go right through the
    wall above the rocks to find a chest containing monsters.  When they are
    defeated you will recieve a BLOODSWD.  Exit the room and then head north for a
    scene.  After the scene Edge will join the party.  He kind of reminds me of
    Setzer from Final Fantasy 6.  Head left through the wall and open the chest to
    get an ETHER2.  Now, run around the cave training edge for a while.  Edge pwns.
    End of story.  When you're ready, proceed north from where you got Edge to
    enter the Tower of Babil again.

         Run straight up and you will be sent through the wall.  You can return
    back to the cave by walking up to the area where you landed.  Open the chest to
    your left for a UNIHORN.  Follow the path all the way around, ignoring the door
    to find a chest containg an HRGLASS2.  Go through the ignored door.
        Head east and up the path.  Follow it to the middle of the top and then go
    down the bridge.  Open the chest to fight some monsters.  You will recieve an
    OGRE (axe) for defeating them.  I equipped this on Kain.  Go back across the 
    bridge and continue alone west.  Enter the door at the end.
        Head east past the door to find a chest containg a SUCCUBUS, then go
    through the passed door.
        Head east and follow the path until you find a chest.  Open it for an 
    ASHURA.  This is a sword for Edge, make sure you equip it immediately.  
    Continue along the path and through the door.
        Head east past the bridge and into the first door.  Save your game and rest
    if need here.  Exit this room and enter the next door on your right.  Enter the
    door on your left.
        Take the left path and follow it.  Go past the bridge leading up and you
    will find a chest containg 82,000 GIL.  Go back to the bridge you went past and
    cross it.  You will be thrust into a battle during the scene.  Deal with it 
    however you feel like.  After the battle and the scene afterwards, Edge learns
    Blitz and Flood.  Return to the save point and save your game.  avoid using a
    tent or anything.  Talk to Rubicant when you're ready to have him heal your
    HP/MP and then initiate a boss battle.
    Rubicant - ?? HP, 7000 Gil, 18000 exp
        Rubicant is weak to ice, but be warned.  When he covers himself in his
    cloak (his leg isn't showing) he will absorb ice.  Cecil will do a lot of
    damage with his attack when he isn't covered.  It's not a hard fight as long as
    you keep you hp high, and don't do ice attacks on him when he's covered.
    Remember, 'Shiva' is Rydia's ice summon.  Use it for >4000 damage.  Sometimes
    Rubicant will even cast Ice2 on himself when he isn't covered for >1000 damage.
    He's silly, isn't he? :)
        After the scene, walk forward through the door.  Go forward a little to
    fall down a whole heap of floors.  Open the chest to your north for a HIPOTION.
    Follow the very linear path through a few floors until the path splits left and
    right.  Head right to find another HIPOTION, then head left.  Go through the
    door for a scene.
        Awlright!  Airship in the underworld :).  Unfortunately your airship sucks.
    It cannot fly over the lava.  Only place for you to go is to the Dwarven
    castle, so head there.  You'll hafta stick to land, by the way.
    Dwarven Castle
        Head up to the throne room for a scene, during which you will recieve the
    NECKLACE.  Exit the throne room and head west, up the stairs.  Go straight
    north and down the stairs.  Enter the first room you see and go and talk to Cid
    in one of the beds for a scene.  Yay, your airship can fly over the lava now.
    This opens up quite a few things for us to do before we continue with the 
    story!  So anyway, sell all your useless items and such, and then go and board
    your airship.
        Once in your airship, head west and you'll spot a small island with a cave.
    This is the Cave of Summons, head southeast from here and you'll find a town.  
    This is Tomra.  Enter it.
    2000 Gil
        Start by heading to the weapon store.  I would suggest buying another
    Ashura for Edge, Chain whip for Rydia and lots of Mute arrows for Rosa.  Head
    east through the wall to get into the armour shop.  Here I would suggest buying
    Diamond gear for Cecil and Kain, Tiara for Rydia/Rosa (whoever doesn't have
    one), and GoldRings for Rydia, Rosa and Edge.
        Enter the house in the top left and open the chests for 2000 GIL, ETHER2,
    THORRAGE and a BOMB.  Examine the pots for a NOTUS and BESTIARY.  Exit the 
        Board your airship.  We're off to the Land of Summons.  Make sure Rosa is
    level 35 before going.  You need the float spell.  Head northwest to a little
    island with a cave on it.  Land and enter the cave.

        First, have Rosa cast float on the entire party.  Some of the floor will
    deal you damage when you walk on it, but floating avoids this.  Head east and
    then north.  Open the chest for a LIFE.  Head straight left from the chest,
    through a secret passage and open the chest for an ETHER1.  Go back east 
    through the passage and then head south to find a chest containing a HIPOTION.
    Head west from here and follow the path to find the exit to B2F.
        When you enter a new room, you will not be floating anymore, so have Rosa
    cast it again.  Head to the east, ignoring going north, to find a chest with
    another HIPOTION in it.  Go up the ignored nortern path.  Head west at the 
    split for a CABIN, then head east from the split.  Go to B3F.
        Cast float again.  Follow the path until you find a chest containing a
    LIFE.  Head east all the way to find a chest containing a BESTIARY.  From here,
    go east into the secret passage, following it down and you will eventually get
    to a room with 3 chests containing a HIPOTION, a VENOMAXE and a KIKUICHI.
    Kikuichi is a weapon for Edge, equip it on him to turn Edge into *ahem* 'TeH
    T0t@l Pwnz0rz' (Makes him awesome).  Enter the secret passage again and head
    back to the south.  Don't exit the path where you entered, go further north.
    Go north to find a chest containing monsters.  You have to fight 5 warriors, 
    and they can deal a lot of damage out quickly.  For this battle I had Edge use
    Blitz once, Rydia use Ifrit once and Rosa healed.  Everyone just attacked, even
    Edge and Rydia after they'd used their attacks.  For winning you will get the
    DEFENSE (sword).  Equip this on Cecil immediately.  It will boost his attack
    _and_ defense considerably.  Head back to where the secret path is, but head
    left from it instead of entering it to go through the wall.  Make sure Rosa
    knows wall, then step on the thing to enter the Land of Summons.

        Head west and open the chest for an ETHER1.  Just north from here is a 
    chest containing a BESTIARY.  Head east a little and step on the teleporter
    tile thing, then step on it again, so you have access to the south side of it.
    Go south and open the chest for a RAT TAIL.  Go back to the north side of the
    teleporter.  Continue heading east and open the chest for 5000 GIL.  Head south
    and open the next chest for 6000 GIL.  Go one tile east of this chest, and then
    all north, onto the tile that is outlined in shadows.  This is a secret room 
    with 4 chests.  Open them for YOICHI (arrows), an ELIXIR, an ETHER2 and more
    YOICHI (bow).  Equip the bow on Rosa, but avoid using the arrows, as you only
    have 10.  Great arrows though.  Exit the secret room, then use the teleporter
    at the north. 
        Head south and go into the armour shop.  Buy an Aegis shield for Cecil and
    Kain, and Sorcerer armour for Rydia and Rosa.  Exit the store and head west
    to the weapon shop.  Buy a Blitz whip for Rydia, Angel arrows for Rosa and a
    Kotetsu for Edge (replacing the Ashura.  Edge should have a Kotetsu and a
    Kikuichi).  Head to the northeast and enter the item shop.  This is actually
    the inn too, so buy some items if you feel like it, and then rest up.  Exit the
    inn and enter the building to your left.  Open the two chests for a BESTIARY 
    and a LIFE.  The star thing at the top of this room is a save point, so save
    your game.  Exit this room and enter the building directly at the bottom.  This
    is the library.  Head to the bottom via some stairs then a teleporter.  Talk
    to the queen and say yes to initiate a boss battle.
    Asura - 31005 hp, 20000 exp
        Straight off have Rosa cast wall on Asura, as she will cast restoring 
    spells on herself quite often.  They will now be reflected at you.  Avoid using
    spells on her now.  She will counter attack your attacks for some fairly huge
    damage sometimes (Killed my Edge in one hit :(...twice)  Once you have her 
    walled, she becomes a lot easier, and the battle can only get annoying.  If you
    need to heal you can just stop attacking her.  Rydia was summoning titan, Rosa 
    healing, Kain jumping, Edge and Cecil attacking with Cecil healing 
        After this battle, Rydia will learn the Asura summon.  You're probably very
    low on mp, so I suggest going back to rest at the inn.  When you are ready, go
    to the king and talk to him.  Select yes to initiate the next boss battle.
    Leviatan - 50001 hp, 28000 exp
        While I personally think this battle is easier than the battle against 
    Asura, Leviatan can make quick work of you if you let your hp drop.  This 
    battle is all about keeping your hp high.  When Leviatans head is sticking out
    he will use the 'big wave' attack.  This will usually deal 300-400 to your
    party, but can deal more (nearly 600 to my Cecil once).  Leviatan managed to
    KO Rydia for me, and I had to use an item to revive her, as Rosa wasn't getting
    enough rounds between his big waves.  I had Edge use Blitz until he had no mp,
    then he attacked.  Rydia summoned Titan, Rosa healed every round (mainly cure3,
    cure4 occasionally), Kain jumped, and Cecil mainly attacked (cure2
        After the battle, Rydia will learn the Leviatan summon!  yay!  Exit all the
    way back to the Cave of Summons and have Rosa use Exit to exit the cave.
        First things first, save your game.  Then head to a town to rest at an inn
    if you need to.  There is still some more to do before we get on with the
    storyline.  Namely, Sylvan cave.  Head to the northwest corner and land near
    the cave.  Enter it.

        Just like the Cave of Summons, cast float on your party here.  Head east
    and open the two chests for a BESTIARY and ANGEL (arrows).  Head south from the
    entrance to the next room.
        Cast float.  Head south and enter the next room.  Cast float.  There is a
    save point to the right.  Rest/save at it if you want to.  Head north then
    right into a hidden path.  Open the chest at the end of it for an ELVENBOW.
    The Yoichi bow is better, so leave that equipped.  Head west from the save 
    point, past two exits to find two chests containing a CABIN and 1000 GIL.  Go
    through the exit just south of these chests.
        Cast float.  Follow the path and head east when possible.  Go into the
    first door you see.  Cast float.  Head north to find 5 chests containing a
    HIPOTION, ETHER1 and BOLT, ICE and FIRE (arrows).  Exit the room.  Cast float.
    Continue to follow the path to the north.  Before going into the exit, go right
    and into a secret path.  Follow it around and then open the chest to find some
    monsters.  There are 6 TinyToads and  ToadLady.  I _hate_ TinToads.  They just
    sit there casting Toad or Frog or whatever it is on your people.  I chose to 
    make quick work of them with a Blitz from Edge.  For winning you will recieve
    the MAGEMASH dagger.  Return through the secret passage and exit to the south.
        Cast float.  Take two steps down, then west twice.  Open the chest for an
    ELIXIR.  Continue south and around the path to a building.  Enter the building.
    Talk to the Sylphs to learn some about Yang, then open the chests for a CATCLAW
    and HELLCLAW.  Go upstairs and walk directly north.  This will teleport you
    from the cave, so reenter.
        Cast float.  Just go south to the next room.  Cast float.  Go around to the
    left and go in the exit you come to.  Cast float.  As soon as you enter this 
    room, hit left to go through the wall.  Head north and open the chests for a
    HIPOTION and a MAIDKISS.  Go right from below the MaidKiss to get access to
    the third chest.  Open it for a FAIRYROD.  Return to the start of this room, 
    But instead of going west through a secret passage, go east into one.  Follow
    it to the end, then go south one, and east.  Go up the stairs to the next room.
        Cast float.  Head east then south and open the chests you see to get a
    REMEDY, KAMIKAZE, 3000 GIL and 2000 GIL.  Continue south to find 5 more chests.
    Open them for a BESTIARY, EXIT, MAIDKISS, MAIDKISS and an ETHER1.  Drop down
    through the hole.
        Cast float.  Go north all the way, then west through a secret passage.
    Step on the teleporter tile to find a 'treasure room' of sorts.
        Cast float.  There are 6 chests here.  All containing monsters.  For 
    defeating all of the monsters you will get INFERNO, FULLMOON (boomerang, equip
    it on Edge if you want.  Replace the Kotetsu if you do this.  It won't change
    his attack, but you might want to do it for 'shits and giggles'), BLIZZARD,
    AVENGER (two handed sword.  equip it if you want, your physical defense will
    go above what the Aegis shield gives, but makes you attack on your own like
    beserk), LITSTORM and MEDUSA (arrows).  A bit of help here, you will have to 
    fight four (yes, FOUR) Malboro's.  They start off their battles with breath,
    breath renders a character pretty much useless in all aspects.  I find the best
    course of action against ANY Malboro is to use a summon.  I used Leviathan, it
    can do >4000 damage to all, killing all the malboros in one (I was unlucky and
    it only killed 2 for me :P).  Go and step on the teleporter to your right to
    be teleported out of the cave.
        Okay, NOW it's time to advance the storyline and head to the sealed cave.
    First you will want to go to a town and rest and sell all your old crappy gear.
    To find the Sealed Cave, go northwest a tiny bit from Tomra.  There is a little
    crater like place with a cave in it.  Enter there.

        Walk up to the door and use the Necklace to open it.  When you're inside,
    go south and climb down the wire.  Examine the door just below you for it to
    turn into a monster.  Trapdoors are annoying.  They'll use a move that
    instantly kills one of your party members, and if they get low on hp (try to
    use high damage moves) they will turn into another monster.  Once it is dead
    enter the room.  Open the two chests in here for a KOTETSU and an ETHER1.  Exit
    the room.  Open the chest to your southwest for a BESTIARY.  Head north then 
    west and up another wire.  Kill the trapdoor and go inside.  Open the chests 
    for a HIPOTION and an ETHER1.  You can then kill the two trapdoors at the top
    for experience if you want.  Afterwards, exit south on the east side.
        Go down the wire and then go east to get a STARVEIL.  Go back up the wire
    and then head to the east.  Open the chest for a LIFE.  Go north from here.
    There are 6 TrapDoors to fight.  I suggest fighting all of them.  If not, the
    second room contains a chest containing LIGHT (sword) for Cecil.  The third
    contains a FUMA, ELIXIR and a STARVEIL.  The fifth contains a save point, and
    the sixth contains NINJA (helm, equip on Edge) and a KOTETSU.  When you've 
    killed all 6 doors (if you wanted to) go and save/rest at the save point.  When
    you're ready, exit and continue west.  Follow the path to yet another trapdoor.
        After you've gone through the door, go up and open the chest for an ETHER1.
    Follow the path around to the left and down the stairs.  Open the two chests
    for a LIFE and a HIPOTION.  Kill the trapdoor for it's exp.  Exit the room to
    the south to get to B3F.
        Cross the bridge and go east.  Kill the trapdoor then get the chest just 
    above it for a MUTEBELL.  Go west a bit and slide all the way down the wire.
    Go east and defeat the Trapdoor.  Enter the door and open the two chests for
    an ETHER2 and an X-POTION.  Exit the room and head west this time.  Go down the
    stairs.  Save your game and rest if need be, then exit to the south.
        In here, go all the way around the outside and then north to the middle and
    down some stairs to B5F.  Go north and across the bridge to fight the last 
    trapdoor.  Save again if you want, a boss battle is coming up.  Enter the last
    trapdoor door.  Walk forward and take DARK (crystal).  Exit the crystal room
    and try to cross the bridge for a scene that initiates a boss battle.
    EvilWall - 28000 hp, ??? Gil (I missed it >_<), 23000 exp
        The EvilWall will continually move forward while hitting you with weak
    attacks constantly.  It is VERY VERY fast, so the weak attacks can add up.
    Kain should attack, Cecil should Attack, Edge can throw things if you have them
    but I just attacked.  Rydia should cast Ice3 or Leviathan, and Rosa MUST cast
    slow on it first chance possible.  Then I had her Beserk the attacking 
    characters.  If the EvilWall gets close enough it will simply begin killing 
    random characters.  I had no problem defeating it before this happened though.
        Unequip Kain and make your way out.  Warp or Exit won't work here 
    unfortunately.  When you get back to the entrance, there will be a scene.  Kain
    will leave the party.  Exit to the Underworld
        Simply enter your airship and fly to the dwarven castle.  Enter the castle.
    Dwarven Castle
        Go straight to the throne room.  There will be a scene.  Cid will have 
    modified your airship again.  Your next destination is Mysidia, so heal up and
    then climb into your airship.
        Go to the northeast and you'll see a crater in the ground.  Try to land 
    here and you will dig up to the overworld.
        Mysidia is a short trip east.  So get to it!
        Start walking into town for a scene.
    Extras (Some side quests and junk)
    ------------------------Adamant Grotto
    ------------------------Kokkol's Smithy
    ------------------------Lunar Path
    Au Apple
        The Lunar Whale!  You now control the Lunar Whale.  Inside, there is a 
    crystal that when used will take you to and from the moon.  There are also
    seats that when you sit in them will let you rest, just like an inn.  And it 
    even seems that this is where the fat chocobo lives when you havn't summoned
    him elsewhere!  You can also examine the panel north of the crystal to use it
    like a normal airship.  Dream come true, eh?  Get in your new Lunar Whale and
    start flying it like a normal airship.  Before we head to the moon, there's 
    some more things to do.  Fly west to the continent where the Tower of Babil is
    and land next to the Enterprise.  Switch over to the Enterprise and grab the
    hovercraft.  Fly east to Mt. Ordeals then north to Mithril Village.  Drop the
    hovercraft off next to Mithril Village and then get in it.  Head to the island
    with the cave on it just southeast of you.
        Go up and talk to the tiny man.  He'll ask for a tail.  Give him the Rat 
    Tail you should have picked up in the Land of Summons and he will give you
    ADAMANT.  Leave the grotto and head all the way back to the underworld.  You
    will need the airship that Cid fixed the drill too.  It's the one that can 
    handle the lava.
        Head straight south and you should find a little house.  Enter it.
    Kokkol's Smithy
        Check the pots on the first floor to find a REMEDY and a HIPOTION.  Head
    upstairs and check out the left side of the shelf for a SOMADROP.  Talk to the
    guy in the bed and give give him the Adamant ore and he will take Legend (the
    sword Cecil got when he became a paladin).  Head downstairs and talk to the
    old guy again.  He will give you the EXCALIBUR sword.  I'm sure you know what
    to do!  Yay for good weapons.
    ---I'm just going to title the main area you will be in from here on, as it
    gets annoying ti type "underworld" for just once sentence.  I imagine it would
    get annoying to read too.
        Anyway, head back to the overworld and go to Fabul.  Go north from Mt.
    Ordeals to get there.
        Enter Fabul and head to where Yang's wife is.  The west tower.  She will
    give you a PAN when you talk to her.  Now you have to go to Yang.  He's in the
    sylvan cave.  View above for a guide to that area.  Remember to cast Float!
    Examin Yang and select to use the pan.  Rydia will learn the sylph summon.  Now
    head back to Fabul and speak with Yang's wife.  Give her back the pan and she
    will give you a KNIFE.  The knife is the ultimate throwing weapon.
        NOW we get to go to the moon.  Go and board your Lunar Whale, and while
    inside, examine the crystal.
        Fly kind of south-eastish and you will see the Crystal Palace.  Land on the
    grey plateau just above it.  Rest up before you leave the Lunar Whale.  Go down
    the little path from the plateau and enter the cave on your left.
    Lunar Path
        Head east at the split and open the chest to fight some monsters.  For 
    defeating them you will get an AU APPLE.  Head west and follow the path to the
    end to find 2 chests containing STARDUST and a MOONVEIL.  Head west to the 
    previous 'room' like thing.  The strange looking tile in the north wall is the
    exit.   Back outside, go east and then south to find the next cave and entrance
    to the next Lunar path.  Linear.  Follow it to the end.  Head west and then
    north into the cave entrance at the foot of the Crystal Palace.
    Crystal Palace
        If you head to the left and right there will be tiles that will restore 
    your hp and mp.  When you're ready, head up through the middle for a scene.
    FuSoYa will join the party.  To explain FuSoYa... Tellah on steroids.  He can
    even use meteo.  Head all the way back to the Lunar Whale.  It is now time to 
    get another summon.  Start flying the Lunar Whale (using control panel, not the
    crystal) and head west a tiny bit.  There should be a big circle with a cave in
    the middle.  Land on the outer plateau and make your way down into the cave.

    My Levels
    Rydia - 42(44), Edge - 38(40), FuSoYa - 50(51), Cecil - 45(47), Rosa - 43(45)
        Head south and then east at the first split.  Go to the top and then east
    to find a secret passge through the block.  Open the chest for GENJI (shield).
    Equip it on Cecil if you want to.  Go back through the passage and take the 
    south route this time.  Open the chest to get GENJI (gloves).  Follow the east
    path to the end and through a door.
        Follow the path and you will spot a chest that contains GENJI (armour).
    Head all the way to the east to find a chest containing GENJI (helmt).  I would
    suggest equipping all the Genji gear on Cecil.  Head back west a bit and then
    go north across the bridgey-section.  You will enter what seems to be a normal
    battle against a Behemoth.  This is vaguely a boss battle, as it is unavoidable
    and has boss music.  It's up to you how to do this.  You may want to go back to
    your Lunar Whale to heal after this battle.  There are still more Behemoths to
    kill, too.
        When you manage to defeat the Behemoth, head north and through the door.  
    On the next floor, head south along the narrow path.  You will fight 2 more
    Behemoth's on this path, so watch out for those.  Go up the stairs and talk to
    Bahamut.  If you have Leviathan, he will fight you.
        This is almost a ridiculously easy battle if you know what you're doing.
    Bahamut's only attack is MegaFlare, which will count down from 5, and then 
    happen.  It's just a spell of sorts though, so simply wall all your characters
    (Might wanna use star veils and moon veils for Edge, Cecil and Rydia, as they
    can't cast wall on themselves, and the countdown is rather quick).  Megaflare
    will be reflected back at him for 9999 damage.  Just beat him down in between
    MegaFlares, trying to keep all characters walled.
        After defeating Bahamut, Rydia will learn to summon him.  Bahamut is the
    god of summons, and is exceedingly powerful.  Let your enemies cower before 
    your might.  Exit Cave Bahamut (using exit magic if you want).
        Board the Lunar Whale and rest in a thingo.  Save your game outside, and 
    then head back to the overworld by examining the crystal.  There will be a
    scene once you reach the overworld.
    Giant of Babil
    Ag Apple
    My Levels
    Rydia - 44, Edge - 40, FuSoYa - 51, Cecil - 47, Rosa - 45
        Once you are inside the Giant of Babil, head north and step on the grey,
    teleporting tile.  This will bring you into the Giant's neck.  Step on the next
    teleporter tile.  Run down and left and open the chest for a SHURIKEN.  
    Continue along the linear path and you will find another chest containing a 
    HIPOTION.  Continue along a little futher to find a chest with an ETHER1.  Go
    northeast when the path splits and open the chest for YOICHI (arrows).  Go west
    at the path split to find another chest that contains an ALERT.  Go northwest
    from the split and step on a grey tile to get to the Stomach.
        Go north to find a chest containing an AG APPLE.  Go east from the grey
    teleporter tile.  When the path splits, take the right side to get a SOMADROP.
    Take the left side and follow it to a teleporter.
        Follow the linear path and you will find a chest that contains monster.
    For defeating the Last Arm you will recieve an ELIXIR.  Continue along the
    linear path and head west when the path splits to find a save point.  Save and
    rest if you need to, then head north.  Step on the teleporter to get to the
        Head north for a scene.  You will have to fight the 4 elements again.  My
    advice would be to go all out offensive on them, with Rosa healing every turn.
    Try to conserve mp with FuSoYa by use #2 spells, instead of #3.  Go back to the
    save point and save/rest.  Continue north from where the elements were to get
    to the core.  Cross the bridge for a scene.
    CPU, Attacker, Defender
        This is a very very easy battle.  Start out with Rydia summoning Bahamut.
    In fact, have her summon Bahamut over and over and you will win.  Bahamut will
    kill the attacker and defender easily on one hit, and the CPU in about 3.  You
    can use a meteo or something from FuSoYa if you want.  Otherwise, keep your 
    party alive.  the CPU can do 9999 damage to any one party member.
        There will quite a long scene where FuSoYa will leave the party and Kain
    will rejoin.  Kain will have all sweet Genji gear, too.  After the scene, you
    will be on the moon.  Go back to the overworld so we can get the Odin summon.
        Simply head towards Baron.
    Castle Baron
        Remember how the kings ghost said to go back to him after you've been to 
    the Land of Summons?  Head into the bulk of the castle and then make your way
    to the east tower.  Head to the bottom of the tower.  You will have to fight
    Odin.  Odin is very easy.  Just go all out offensive with everyone except Rosa.
    Or you could even use Aim with Rosa, as there is little chance Odin will deal
    enough damage to even kill one character.  After defeating Odin, Rydia will be
    able to summon him in battle.  Now, head to the moon for the final dungeon of
    the game!
        When you're on the moon, rest up.  Make your way to the Crystal Palace 
    (where FuSoYa was found).  Save your game before entering.
    Crystal Palace
        Head to the left and right at the start to restore your hp and mp.  When
    you are ready, head up, past where you met FuSoYa and into a crystal room.  You
    can examine the crystals, and they will 'say' some things to you.  Some of it
    might be interesting.  When you're ready stand on the centre tile.

    My Levels
    I trained a whole heap around here.  I'll give you my levels before actually 
    going to fight the final boss when it gets to that point.
        With the healing tiles back in the Crystal Palace, and this being the final
    dungeon and all, you may want to run around and do some healing.  Just a hint,
    you have to go through the flashy green colours and annoying sounds EVERY time
    you enter the Lunar Subterrane.  If you have any sort of troubles, you may want
    to go through the Lunar Subterrane a bit to acquire some more powerful weapons.
    I'm going to do that before I start training at least.
        Now, see the little break in the walk directly west of you?  Go through
    that.  Go south and stand on the teleporter.  Go north through the door and 
    open the chest on the following room to fight some monsters.  For defeating 
    them you will recieve the SAGE (staff).  Go southwest and onto the next 
    teleporter.  Follow the linear path into the next room.
        Cast float on your party.  Go around towards the two pillars.  What's that
    floating between them?  It looks mighty like a... Ninja sword?!  My god it is!
    Examine it to fight a White D. (Dragon).
    White Dragon
        Not too hard.  As long as you cast float before the battle.  He has a nasty
    GaiaRage attack, but it will miss if you are floating.  Kain jump, Cecil 
    attack, Rydia summon bahamut, Edge throw things or attack, Rosa cure4.  Pretty
    much it.
        After the battle you will recieve the MURASAME sword.  Equip this on Edge
    and rejoice.  He should now have Kikuichi and Murasame.  I am a happy man.
    Backtrack all the way to first room of the Lunar Subterrane.  Take this 
    opportunity to return to the Crystal Palace to heal.  Head through the east
    wall in the first room this time, instead of the west.  Follow this linear
    path to a chest that contains monsters.  For defeating them you will get the
    NINJA armour for Edge.  Woot!  more Edge gear!  Equip this immediately and
    head back to the Crystal Palace to heal if you need.  Back in the Lunar
    Subterrane, head south from the start this time.  Not through any secret
    passages.  Go through the door to B2.
        Follow the linear path to the end and then go into the secret passage.  
    Follow it towards the chest in the middle of the black and open the chest for
    the FIRELASH whip for Rydia.  Equip this immediately.  Instead of turning left
    off of the secret path to get to the FireLash whip, head striaght north and 
    then west.  Head through two more blocks of passage and then open the chest for
    the DRAGON shield for Kain or Cecil.  Your choice.  Go through the door just
    to your east.
        Head all the way to the south and then to the east into a secret passage.
    Follow the passage and open the chest for the DRAGON helm.  Equip it on Cecil
    or Kain.  Yet again, your choice.  I like Cecil more than Kain, so I put it on
    him personally.  Head southeast out of this room through another secret passage
    to get to a room with 2 chests containing the DRAGON armour and DRAGON 
    gauntlets.  Either spread the Dragon gear between them or put it all on one.  I
    like putting it on one, it looks cool when you check their equipment :).  Go 
    back through the secret passages and into the door just to your north.
        Head all the way to the east and open the chest to get some ARTEMIS arrows.
    Go down the steps just to your west and then into the room on your west.  Open
    the chest for an ELIXIR.  Head all the way to the east and down some more 
    stairs.  Go into the door.
        Follow the linear path and go northeast when it splits.  Open the chest for
    a BLIZZARD.  Head all the way to the west now to get an X-POTION.  Head out the
    door just to your east.  Open the chest in view to fight a Behemoth.  You will
    get the STARDUST rod for winning.  Head down the steps just to the east.
        Go down the steps and head west, past the door and open the chest to fight
    a Blue Dragon and a Red Dragon.  They can be kind of tough, but for winning you
    will get the CRYSTAL shield.  Again, equip this on who you want.  It is better
    than the Dragon gear, so I put it on Cecil and gave the Dragon shield to Kain.
    Head into the room just to your southeast.
        Head up and east through the wall.  Open the chest to score a PROTECT ring.
    Equip this on someone immediately, it is very very good.  I personally put it 
    on Edge, because I like Edge, and his armour isn't that great for being in the
    front row.  Rydia is _probably_ a better choice though, due to her very low hp.
    Go east through the next wall and exit this room to the south.  Open the chest
    to fight a Behemoth.  For defeating it you will get the CRYSTAL armour.  Equip
    it immediately.  Go back into the previous room and exit north this time. 
        Open the chest to your east to fight two Red Dragons (oh noes!).  For 
    killing them you will recieve the CRYSTAL gauntlets, which should be equipped
    immediately.  Head to the west and into that door.  Open the chest on your left
    to get the WHITE robe.  Equip this on Rosa immediately.  Exit to the north.
        Head to the west and open the chest to fight a Warlock and a Dragon Fossil.
    You will recieve  the CRYSTAL helm for defeating them.  Equip this on Cecil 
    immediately.  Cecil and Kain should now have a full Dragon and full Crystal
    set between them.  Enter the room to the east of the one you came out of and 
    open the chest to get an INFERNO.  In this room there is a 1/64 chance of an
    enemy called PinkPuff appearing.  And then a 1/64 chance of it dropping an item
    called PinkTail.  The reason why the PinkTail item is so good, is that once you
    get it, you can take it to the guy in Adamant Grotto (the cave just southest
    from Mihtril Village) and he will trade you the Adamant armour for it.  Adamant
    armour is the best armour in the game and can be equipped by everyone!  A 
    little note on finding PinkPuffs - If you have any alert items, use them in the
    room and you will, always, encounter 5 PinkPuffs.
        Leave the room and go down the stairs to B6.  Open the two chests here for
    a FUMA and some ARTEMIS arrows.  Head down the bridge on the left and open the
    chest for a CABIN.  Head around to the right and enter the door.  Open the
    chest to fight some monsters.  For winning you will recieve the MINERVA robe.
    Equip this on Rydia or Rosa.  Exit the room. Just above the chest where the
    cabin was there is a thin bit of land stretching out to the west.  Run across 
    here, there is an invisible bridge.  Head to the northwest part of this block 
    and then east into a hidden path.  Go east and then south down some stairs.  
    Open the chest for an AU APPLE.  Go all the way to the east and step on the 
    teleporter tile.
        Head north to the next teleporter.  Head north and open the chest to fight
    a Behemoth.  For defeating it you will recieve another PROTECT ring.  yaaaaaay!
    Be sure to equip this immediately.  Continue north to the next teleporter.
    There is a save point here, so save and use a cabin/tent.  Exit to the south.
    Oooh, more pillars, another sword.  Who do you think that could be for?  Cecil!
    Go and examine the sword to initiate a boss battle.
        In my opinion, this is one of, if not THE hardest battle in the game. 
    Wyvern will start the battle with a MegaFire, which deals huge damage.  I in
    fact had to go and spend a few hours training after I died to him like 10 times
    in a row.
        Anyway, I can't give much advice for this battle.  Your main goal should be
    to get everyone alive as soon as possible.  Rosa should _definately_ heal 
    _every_ turn, maybe even casting haste on her.  A lot of people seem to think
    that you should wall your party (good idea if you have a lot of moonveils or
    that other veil that makes a wall) and then summon Bahamut.  If you summon
    anything at Wyvern, he will counter with a MegaFire.  MegaFire can be reflected
    back at him for huge damage though.  I never have the items for this and I
    refuse to waste turns casting wall.  For this battle I had Edge throw powerful
    items (this is where most of my damage came from), Kain jump, Cecil 
    attack/heal, and Rydia just attack (I casted wall on her at one point and
    had her reflect spells off of herself onto Wyvern, but the wall only lasted one
        After the battle you will recieve the RAGNAROK sword.  Equip this on Cecil
    immediately.  Oh yeah.  This sword is a freaking breast.  Go back to the save
    point and save your game.  Backtrack to where you got the Minerva robe.
        Go through the door to the north.  Follow the linear path and enter the
    first door you come to.  Save your game and rest if needed.  Exit the room and
    get into a random battle.  Kill one of your members, except for Rosa, as you 
    will want her alive to revive.  I killed Rydia personally.  You'll see why we
    done this in a second.  With one character dead, enter the first door to the
    left of the save room  Awlright!  More pillars and another sweet as weapon!
    It's long... It's pointy.  It must be a spear!  Examine the spear for a boss
    battle to start.
       This is an easy battle, or a very hard battle.  Depending on how much you
    know about him.  Plague will cast a mass-doom on your party, giving you a timer
    until you die.  Seems impossible, eh?  There are two ways to do this battle.
    The first, and stupid way is to run around leveling until you are an incredibly
    high level and then just smash him away before the 10 timer runs out.  Or you 
    can do it the start way, and enter battle with one character dead.  When the
    timer start's getting a little lower, revive the character and Plague will cast
    the spell again, resetting the timer for everyone.  Repeat as necessary.
        After the battle you will recieve the HOLYLNCE.  Equip this on Kain 
    immediately.  Sweet.  Kains best weapon :).  Go back to the save room and save
    your game again.  Rest if needed.  Enter the door two doors east of the save
    room.  Looky!  pillars again!  This time there are two chests rather then a 
    weapon though.  Approach the chests to enter another boss battle.
    Lunasaur x2
        Cecil is your key to victory.  The Lunasaurs are mainly just overpowered
    random battle enemies, but they are dangerous.  Cecil should deal 9999 damage
    with his normal attack though, which is very helpful.  They will cast recover
    on themselves for 2300 hp recovery if you summon anything against them.  They
    don't have a lot of hp, especially with the 9999 damage Cecil can deal, and the
    8700-ish Edge can deal by throwing Excaliburs (There is a glitch that lets you
    get a near unlimited amount of any weapon that can be wielded by Cecil, check
    the Hints & Tips section).  Kain should be able to do 3000-4000 damage with his
    jump, which is always welcome.  Rosa should continue to heal every round, but 
    if she is killed, it's not that big of a bother, I never even bothered to 
    revive her when that happened to me.  I won the battle with Cecil, Kain and 
    Edge (barely, he had 5hp :P) alive.
        After the battle, open the chests for a RIBBON and a RIBBON.  Ribbons are
    head armour, so equip them on Rydia and Rosa.  Go back to the save point and
    save/rest.  Exit the save room and continue following the path to your east.
    Head down the stairs and into the door on your left.
        You're almost at the end of the game now!  Hurrah!  Be very careful.  This
    area contains the strongest enemies in the game.  They are all boss-worthy in
    my opinion.  It's a great place to train if you can survive here, as they give
    pretty damn awesome exp.  Going back to try and get adamant armour might be a
    decent idea.  But just so you know, only devout players ever really end up 
    getting that armour.  I've never actually go it :P.
        Head to the east and down some stairs.  Head to the west, and continue 
    past the stairs a tiny bit and open the chest to get a FUMA.  Head down the 
    stairs you just went past and follow the path until it splits east and south.
    ooh, pillars!  Another ninja sword! oh I must be dreaming.  Oh no i'm not!
    Run over and examine the sword to initiate a boss battle.
        Okay.  Second last boss of the entire game.  Woo.  He's a bit difficult.
    He uses Big Wave, twice.  In one attack, and it will deal around 1500-2000
    damage.  Big ouch.  Aside from that he uses a few physical attacks and an 
    attack called 'weak' that will take a character down to single digit hp.  
    Anyways, Rosa.  Wonderful Rosa.  Have her cast cure4, EVERY turn.  Without 
    fail.  Rydia summon bahamut or asura, depending on circumstance.  Have Edge
    throw Fuma's or Excaliburs, or just attack.  Cecil attack, and Kain jump or
    attack.  Edge is my big damage dealer, dealing his 8500+ every round with his
    Excaliburs.  I won this battle on low hp with Cecil and Kain dead.
        When you win, you will recieve the MASAMUNE sword for Edge!  Woot!  Equip
    it on him, leaving him with the Masamune and the Murasame.  Head back to the
    save point and save/heal.  You're heading towards the final boss now.  Go back
    to where you fought Ogopogo, except instead of going down to where he was, go
    right and around down the stairs.
        Head down the stairs just on your right and then head around and check the
    chest for an ELIXIR.  Go down the next set of stairs and follow the path til
    you find a chest containing a WHISTLE.  Continue east from here and step on the
    teleporter to get to the next part.
        Simpy follow the path and you will find two chests containing a FUMA and
    another FUMA.  Follow the path to the bottom right and stand on the telepoter.
        Simply follow the linear path to the next teleporter.  You should now be in
    a room with a pedestal at your back.  Make sure you're equipped and healed.
    May as well use those Artemis arrows now, eh!  Walk to the top of the stairs 
    for a scene.
        The final battle, phew.  First things first, have everyone parry except for
    Edge.  Have him steal over and over until you get DkMatter.  This is important.
    It can take 10+ attempts.  I got it on the 6th.  Next, kill of Rydia and Kain.
    This might sound silly, but they cannot do much for this battle, and With them
    dead, Rosa will get to her round quicker and she will heal for more.  Once you
    have killed off Rydia and Rosa, parry until you get to Cecils round and have
    him use the Crystal.
        Once you use the Crystal, the real fight begins.  Have Rosa heal every 
    round, or maybe cast haste occassionally.  Anyway, Zeromus uses an attack 
    called Big Bang which can spell death for an unprepared party.  Having the 
    DkMatter in your inventory will lessen the damage that Big Bang does.  That's
    why we stole it earlier.  Now, have Edge throw Excaliburs, or that knife you
    got from Yangs wife, and Cecil should just attack.
        When he starts casting Meteo, rejoice.  This is his sign that he is getting
    low on hp.  And Meteo only hits one character for under 1000 damage, so...
        Well.  Congratulations.  You've finished Final Fantasy IV.  Enjoy watching
    the ending scene.  Ahah, love the quote "All this formality crap is makin' my
    neck stiff".  I really think the game needs a few more scenes like the final 
    one, as some of the characters are 'shallow' through the game.  The final scene
    really gives you more insight into their personalities.
        Oh, and you can't help but giggle at the FMV at the end :P.  The animation
    is kind of corny.  They shoulda made it like Final Fantasy VIII level.  I was
    very impressed with the FMV animation in that game.  Woot, we get to sit 
    through the credits!
    -------------------------[IV. - General Gameplay Tips]-------------------------
    |I can't hope to offer you too much here, I don't consider myself a great     |
    |technical player of this game, like I am with other Final Fantasy's.         |
        First tip.  This should be rather obvious as you progress through the game,
    but the enemies you defeat have a set amount of exp that must be distributed.
    exp cannot be gained by dead allies.  So if an enemy has a set exp amount of 2,
    if you finish the battle with two allies alive, they will get 1 exp each, as
    1+1=2.  But if one of those allies is dead, the 2 must still be dispersed among
    the living characters.  2+0=2.  So that one character will gain all the exp.
        This can be very useful for training new characters, or just training in
    general.  It is especially useful at the end of the game, when if you finish a
    battle with only one character alive, that character might get a whopping 
    100,000+ exp (You CAN get 900,000+ exp in one battle apparently).
        Second tip.  This is a game that makes you rely on white magic a LOT.  So
    do not be afraid at all to use a lot of white magic.  I find that during the
    second half of the game, I run from almost all enemies I encounter and just set
    aside time to train my party.  I'm not a big user of tents or cabins though.
        Now, this is kind of cheating.  More taking advantage of a glitch.  First,
    make sure you have the 'Avenger' sword.  This sword is found in the Sylvan 
    cave.  You will also need a bow and arrows.  And preferably the Excalibur 
    sword.  Mainly because Excalibur is the best weapon to duplicate, and that's
    what we're going to do.  
    1.)  Equip Cecil with the bow in his left hand, and the arrows in his right.
    2.)  Get into battle with an enemy (preferably weak, find some imps around
            the town of Baron or something).
    3.)  Don't do anything but parry until you get to Cecil's turn.
    4.)  When it is Cecil's turn, go into items, and scroll down to an empty slot.
    5.)  Select the empty slot then scroll to the top of the list, and press up once
            again to access the weapons.
    6.)  Select either the bow or arrow.  This will send it to the empty slot you
            selected earlier.
    7.)  Repeat for the other wielded thing.
    8.)  Select Cecil's left hand and equip the Avenger sword.
    9.)  Exit to the battle menu and simply wait.  The Avenger sword makes your
            character attack on his own.  Don't attack with anyone.  Let Cecil
            finish off the enemies.
    10.) Open the menu and select equip.  There should be a strange symbol next to
             Cecils right hand.  Select the Avenger (should be in left hand) and 
             then select an empty slot to de-equip it.
    11.) Select the weapon you want to multiply (preferably Excalibur) and equip 
             it to Cecils right hand.  Unequip it and exit the 'equip' menu.
    12.) Check items.  The Excalibur sword should have a strange symbol next to it
             This will represent roughly 255 I believe.  So now go ahead and start
             throwing Excaliburs at anything that moves.  This is what makes Edge
             my absolute hero.  Go Edge.
    Note:  I have successfully done this on the PAL version of Final Fantasy IV,
               that I bought as part of "Final Fantasy Anthology" in Australia.
           The game is for PSX (Playstation 1).
           To avoid confusion i'd like to clear this up now.  Final Fantasy
               Anthology, when bought in NTSC regions is Final Fantasy V, and
               Final Fantasy VI.  When bought in PAL regions it is Final Fantasy IV
               and Final Fantasy V.  Final Fantasy VI is sold as a seperate game in
               PAL regions.  Final Fantasy IV can be bought for PSX in NTSC in a
               package called Final Fantasy Chronicles.  This contains Final 
               Fantasy IV and Chrono Trigger (Chrono Trigger is an absolutely 
               INCREDIBLE game.  It is a MUST play for any rpg fan, no matter
