    Final Fantasy, being one of the best series in video game history, created their
    last installment for the Playstation, Final Fantasy IX. The style of the game is
    that of the earlier Final Fantasy's, which is nothing to fret about. FF9 is
    chock full of the famous FMV, and boy is it beautiful this time around! It's not
    the graphics that make this game epic, but the storyline. Watch out as events
    masterfully unfold between the four great nations. After the story you will find
    out that Chocobo's are back, and better then before. This time it's more about
    how you play Chocobo Hot and Cold then how you wrangle Chocobo's and make'em
    breed. You will find yourself playing H&C for around 20 hours (if you're not
    using my Chocobo guide, of course) and that's just one side quest! Their are
    many other complex side quests that will keep you playing. Overall, Final
    Fantasy IX looks to have snagged the title as the final fantasy on the
    Playstation.

    When characters level up, the value of their stats increase. These values will
    also change when you equip different items.
    
               HP: Health Points determines how much damage a character can take
                   before they are KO'ed.
    
               MP: Magic Points determines how much magic a character can use.
    
            Speed: Speed determines how fast the character's ATB Gauge fills up
                   (The higher the value, the faster the character can act.)
    
         Strength: Strength determines the severity of a physical attack,
    
            Magic: Magic determines the amount of damage caused by magic and summon
                   attacks.

                   enhance your ability to Steal, Counter, and deal critical
                   damage. Also, the character's Spirit determines how long status
                   effects remain and how quickly the Trance Gauge fills.
    
           Attack: Attack determines the amount of damage the character deals using
                   physical attacks.

                   physical attacks.
    
            Evade: Evade determines the character's ability to dodge physical
                   attacks.
    
    Magic Defense: Magic Defense reduces the amount of damage the character
                   receives from magic attacks.

    Using your abilities wisely is the ket to victory.
    
    To use an ability
    -----------------
    Equipping certain items bring out the characters' dormant abilities, which they
    can then use. Until the character learns the ability, he or she can only use it
    while the item is equipped. You can select items according to what ability you
    want your character to learn, or equip them only when you need to use a certain
    ability.

    ability can no longer be used.
    
    It Depends on the Character: #1
    -------------------------------
    If the same item is equipped on a different character, each
    character will extract different abilities from that item. Characters
    can only extract abilities that match their dormant abilities.
    
    Learning Abilities
    ------------------
    To learn abilities, you must earn the necessary AP (Ability Points) for each
    ability. Every time a battle is won with the appropiate item equipped, AP are
    added to each ability being learned. You can check the acquired AP in the
    Ability Menu (see below), or by pressing the X button in the status menu.
    
    1. Equip Item: When you equip an item, you can see the amount of AP required to
    learn the new abilities.
    
    2. Acquire AP through Battles: The acquired AP are awarded to all the abilities
    being learned.
    
    3. Acquired the Required AP: When the gauge for an ability turns red and the
    * * * mark appears, you have learned that ability.
    
    How to read the Ability Menu
    ----------------------------
    AP: Represents the amount of AP acquired (left), and the amount of AP necessary
    to learn the ability (right). The AP acquired remain even if you unequip the
    item, allowing you to go back and finish learning the ability later.
    
    Item: The icon for the item from which you are extracting the ability. When the
    ability is learned, the icon is no longer displayed.
    
    It Depends on the Character: #2
    -------------------------------
    The amount of AP necessary to learn an ability is different for each character.
    Even with the same ability, some characters can learn faster then others.
    
    Action Abilities
    ----------------
    Abilities that provide a character with additional commands are called "Action
    Abilities." With some exceptions, Action Abilities require MP to use. The ab-
    ilities available are different for each character. Some abilities change during
    Trance. Action Abilities can be reorganized by a red diamond-shaped slot with
    the letter "A". Listed below are some Action Abilities.
    
    Zidane (Skill)
    --------------
    Zidane uses special bandit techniques, many of which can be used to aid other
    party members. His Action Abilities require less MP compared to those of other
    characters.
    
    Flee: Higher probability of escaping from battle quickly.
    
    Vivi (Black Magic)
    ------------------
    Vivi uses the magic of the black mages. Black magic cause physical harm or
    invokes status effects.
    
    Fire: Causes fire damage.
    
    Steiner (Sword Skill)
    ---------------------
    Steiner uses the special sword techniques of expert knights. Many of these
    abilities lower the enemy's attack and defense power.
    
    Minus Strike: Reduces the enemy's HP by the difference between your max HP and
                  current HP.
    
    Support Abilities
    -----------------
    Abilities that only function during battles are called "Support Abilities."
    Support Abilities are equipped by distributing the magic stones that the
    character earns. The stronger the ability, the more magic stones required to
    equip it. Support Abilities can be recognized by a green diamond-shaped slot
    with the letter "S". Whether learning or fully learned, a Support Ability cannot
    be used unless a magic stone is equipped in its slot. Try to customize your
    Support Abilities by analyzing the situation at hand.
    
    Main Functions of Support Abilities
    -----------------------------------
    Prevent Status Effects: Support abilities render certain status effects
    ineffective. There are abilities that prevent Poison and Sleep, for example.
    
    Increase Damage: Increase Damage whne attacking certain creature types.
    
    About Magic Stones
    ------------------
    Like MP, the maximum number of magic stones increases as the characters level
    up. Equipping Support Abilities decreases the number of available stones while
    unequipping them increases the number.
    
    Examples of Combing Support Abilities
    -------------------------------------
    Protect + Counter + Eye 4 Eye = Increased number of attacks.
    
    Counter allows you to attack the enemy when physically attacked. With Protect
    you receive attacks in place of an ally, which then triggers Counter. Eye 4 Eye
    increases the chances that you will Counter the attack.
    
    Auto-Potion + Chemist + Auto-Regen = Battle in Safety
    
    With Auto-Potion, you automatically use a Potion when you are damaged. Chemist
    doubles the effectiveness of medicine. Combined, they reduce the possibility of
    HP reaching 0. Auto-Regen gives you 1/16 of your HP back every turn even when
    you are using Auto-Potion.
    
    How you use Abilities is up to you
    ----------------------------------
    If you only need to use abilities temporarily, you only need to equip items that
    correspond to those abilities. However, to use abilities freely, without having
    to worry about equipping items, you must learn them. The ability management
    system is one of Final Fantasy IX's most enjoyable features. Based on the
    description below, try finding a method that matches your playing style.
    
    Situation Method (Quick): Only equip items with skills appropiate to the
    situation. You don't have to fight many battles, because you don't need to worry
    about AP. The downside is that you must carry a large stock of items in order to
    use the desired abilities when you need to.
    
    Hint: Change equipment to match your enemy's strengths and weaknesses.
    
    Basic Method (Standard): Learn useful abilities such as Life, Loudmouth, and
    Alert, and use other abilities by switching items. You will need to consider
    carefully which abilities to learn, but this is the most basic way to move
    forward.
    
    Hint: Carefully study which abilities you need to learn.
    
    Diligent Method (Thorough): Learn all abilities from every item you obtain. You
    must fight more battles in order to gain the required AP. However, once you
    master your abilities, you should be able to proceed towards the end without too
    much trouble.
    
    Hint: Fight many battles, and be patient.
    
    Advice on using Abilities
    -------------------------
    
    Advice 1: Use Scan
    Use Scan to examin the enemy's weaknesses. Your attack will be more effective if
    you use abilities that target its weak points. If you have not mastered any
    appropiate abilities, you can equip items that extract those abilities.
    
    Advice 2: Consider the Combination of Items You Equip
    For example, if an Add-on and a weapon that can extract the same ability are
    equipped at the ame time, the amount of AP distributed to that ability is
    doubled, so it takes less time to learn that particular ability. On the other
    hand, if there is no need to learn that ability, equip an item that extracts a
    different ability, and increase the number of abilities you can use.
    
    Advice 3: Use Shops and Synthesis Shops
    You can obtain powerful items by combining stocked items in synthesis shops or
    buying items in shops. Check all items thoroughly before selling or synthesizing
    items, since they may still have abilities that have not been learned. Also,
    consider the current acquired AP of abilities being learned before equipping new
    items.

                                     2.4  -  Trance
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    When a characters' Trance Gauge reaches full after an enemy attack, that
    character will go into Trance. In addition to increased attack power, the
    character will have special attack commands during Trance (see below). You may
    want to fill up the Trance Gauge as much as possible before fighting strong
    enemies to ensure a Trance during that battle.
    
    Zidane's Trance                         Vivi's Trance
    ---------------                         -------------
    
    +-COMMAND-+     +-TRANCE--+             +-COMMAND-+     +-TRANCE--+
    | Attack  |     | Attack  |             | Attack  |     | Attack  |
    | Steal   | --> | Steal   |             | Blk Mag | --> | Dbl Blk |
    | Skill   | --> | Dyne    |             | Focus   | --> | Focus   |
    | Item    |     | Item    |             | Item    |     | Item    |
    +---------+     +---------+             +---------+     +---------+
    
    The Skill command changes to Dyne.      The Blk Mag command changes to Dbl Blk.
    Zidane can use special attacks          Vivi can use magic twice in a row during
    Trance.                          during Trance.
    
    
    How does the Trance Gauge decrease to 0?
    
    Trance Power decreases every time the character in Trance takes an action.
    Trance ends when the gauge reaches 0. The Trance Gauge will also drop to 0 if:
    
    1. The character is inflicted with the Zombie status, or
    2. The battle ends while the character is in Trance.

                                 2.5  -  Status Effects
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Status effects occur when a character's status is changed by a spell, item, or
    attack. Certain status effects are beneficial, while others are harmful. When
    you use items that cancel (or invoke) status effects, you can view your party
    members' status effects in the Status Window. Some status effects will expire
    after a short while, others will be cancelled at the end of a battle, and some
    will continue to affect the character even after battle. Learn which status
    effects damage your characters, and treat them accordingly with spells or items.
    
    Beware of these status effects
    ------------------------------
    1. Status effects that disable the entire party: If all allies are afflicted
    with KO, Stop, Petrify, or Venom, the game ends.
    
    2. Status effects that stop growth: If a character is affected by KO, Petrify,
    Virus, or Zombie, he or she stops receiving EXP and AP, halting growth.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Enemies:
    --------
    Masked Man (Boss)
    
    After the FMV, you will have control of a boy with a tail. Walk past the
    candles and to the upper right corner of the screen to pick up a Potion. Walk
    to the upper left (opposite side) to receive 47 Gil. Then light the candle in
    the middle of the room. Someone will yell "Who's there!?" and you get to
    select a name for yourself. Choose any name you want, but in this guide I
    will refer to him as "Zidane", his default name. Three people will come in the
    candle room and chat with Zidane for a little bit. Then a person in a mask will
    jump out of the other side of the room and attack you.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Masked Man
    HP: 160
    Steal: Mage Masher, Wrist, Potion
    Party: Zidane (1), Cinna (1), Marcus (1), Blank (1)
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    This is one of the easiest boss fights in the game. The Masked Man only
    attacks for around 20 damage to one character. Sometimes he trips up when he
    is attacking and doesn't hit anyone for any damage at all! He tries to bounce
    around when hitting, and doesn't go after any one character. This is good,
    because no one (including the main character) should get even close to dying.
    Your part has a pretty basic role in this battle. Since he does such little
    damage, have everyone steal until you get all three items. There is no threat in
    this battle, besides Cinna getting knocked out, but we can live with that. After
    you get the items, start attacking him. You might notice that Zidane, Blank, and
    Marcus do around 40 damage each, so he should be history in just a couple hits.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, everyone will look very tired. The Masked Man, whose name is
    Baku, will call a meeting in the next room. Everyone will automatically run
    inside and Baku will tell you the plan. It is your job, along with Blank, to
    kidnap the most babe-ilicious beauty in all of Alexandria, Princess Garnet!

    Enemies:

    King Leo (Boss)
    Steiner (Boss)
    Pluto Knights (50 HP)
    Leo's Henchmen (50 HP)
    
    After another beautiful FMV, we will see a pointy-hat kid walking along the
    street with a ticket. A little girl will bump into him, and his ticket will
    fall on the ground. She will pick it up, and give it back to you. Then you have
    control of pointy-hat kid. It is advisable to go south to the statue area and
    pick up the three cards and the Potion there. Just go around the perimeter,
    hugging the houses, and looking to see if you get a "!" icon (field icon). If
    so, then press X and you will pick up a item. You can find three cards on the
    perimeter, and a Potion on the left side of the statue.
    
    Now go back to the previous screen, and go up and down the street on both
    sides, looking for the field icon along the way. You should get bumped into
    by a rat kid, but that's no big deal. There are two Potions on the left side,
    and on the right side you will find a house with a open door. Go inside to
    see a woman sewing something. Look by the bed (bottom floor) in the upper left
    corner to get 9 Gil. Look on the opposite side, by the desk and chair, to
    receive a Potion. Then go up the ladder and look in the drawer to get another
    card. After that, slide down the ladder and go back to the street. Then run
    north to the next area.
    
    You'll see nobles from Treno getting escorted to the play. After that, look
    on the bottom right and left sides of the screen to receive a card and 33 Gil.
    Then run into the bar, its entrance should be in the middle of the screen. You
    should find a Potion by the table to the bottom right, a card in the opposite
    side, and 33 Gil by the stairs. Then go back outside and west to the next
    screen. Go inside and inspect the Item Shop (to the right) to find some gil.
    Then run north and to the town square.
    
    You can do a lot of nothing in the town square at the current time. If you go
    in to the Weapon/Synthesis Shop to your right, you will find out that they are
    closed. (They're going to the play.) If you go to the left, you can find some
    girls jump roping. If you feel up for the challenge, you can jump rope tediously
    for a while. Go to the side quests section to find out what you will get for
    doing "X amount of jumps." Boring, eh?
    
    Now onto items in this area... If you go north you will see two Alexandrian
    soldiers guarding the castle doors. If you look near the wagon to the right,
    just a little below the two guards, you will find a Phoenix Pinion. If you talk
    to Hippaul on the opposite side, he will tell you that he hid his "three
    precious cards" somewhere in Alexandria. Don't worry, we will get to that...
    
    There is one more place you might want to see, and that's the inn to the left
    of the ticket booth. You won't find any items in here, but you will get to
    see a small shade of the characters personality. Then go over to the middle of
    the square and peek inside the ticket booth. You will find out some bad news. It
    seems that your ticket for "I Want to Be Your Crow" is a fake ticket. The
    ticketmaster will give you three cards in an attempt to compensate your fake
    ticket.
    
    After this, go down the alley in the bottom left of the screen. Halfway down
    you will trip, and the signmaker will blame you for missing a nail. No matter,
    he jumps up two seconds later and finishes the job. Then he decides
    to walk up the alley and leave his ladder. Then the rat kid that you
    ran into earlier will have a little chat with you. Tell him that you had a
    fake ticket, and he will say that if you agree to being his slave, he will
    get you into the show. (Not "I Want to Be Your Crow", mind you.)
    
    Tell him no, and he will run off. From here, run down the alley and to the
    next screen, which seems to be a residence of houses. Walk down to the bell
    tower (or steeple) about halfway down, and go inside. Go around the outer wall
    of the steeple to find a Tent and Potion. Then go up the ladder and to the top
    of the steeple. Pull the rope and three cards will drop from the bell. This is
    Hippaul's secret stash.
    
    After this run back to the alley and to the townsquare, then back to the
    alley again. You will see the rat kid again. Tell him "Alright" this time and
    he will ask you to keep watch on one side. Tell him it's all clear and he
    will take the ladder and go south. Before you go with him, you might want to
    talk to the four armed man going down the alley. This is Alleyway Jack, he
    will teach you all the basics about Tetra Master. (The card game.)
    
    Follow the rat kid back into the steeple and he will tell you to go up first.
    (You slave, you!) Attempt to and a moogle will drop on you. Kupo will then
    chat a little with you, telling you how to save your game and such. After
    that, the rat kid will go up with the ladder and yell at you some more. Then
    Stiltzkin will come in and talk with Kupo. You will find out that he wants to
    travel. After this, talk to Kupo about "Mognet" and he will tell you how the
    mail system works. Agree to delivering mail for Kupo, then save your game
    and climb the ladder.
    
    On the rooftop, the pointy-hat kid will have to cross a couple wood planks.
    Since he is scared of heights he will go very slowly. Follow the rat kid to the
    next set of planks, which will almost be the pointy-hat kid's last step! After
    that, the rat kid starts running faster to get to the play. You have an infinite
    amount of time to get there though, so you can look for Gil around here. For
    some strange reason, it seems that the people of Alexandria love to leave their
    money on the rooftops. Get the Gil stash on this rooftop, it should be on the
    southwestern part of the roof. Then go up and the rat kid will ask for your
    name. His default name is Vivi, but you can choose whatever you want. (Choose
    Puck for a laugh, but don't email me because you didn't like the name!)
    
    After this, look in every single nook and cranny on the rooftop to find more
    Gil. There should be two more stashes, and you can see them easily because they
    are in bags. After this, make your way to the northeastern rooftop. You will
    find out why Puck needed the ladder, even though he could have just as easily
    used one of the planks in the previous rooftops. Oh well. They will both run
    inside and the play will then start up.
    
    "I Want To Be Your Canary" is indeed a love story, and somewhat predictable.
    Watch as events unfold in the story. Then there will be another easy boss
    fight...
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: King Leo
    HP: 200
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane (1), Cinna (1), Marcus (1), Blank (1)
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    And you thought the first boss fight was easy! This fight is even easier! Steal
    is replaced with SFX, which is stage magic that doesn't do any damage. Don't use
    it unless you really want to see it. You don't need to take out King Leo's two
    henchmen; they are insignificant in this battle. Just hack away on King Leo's
    200 health, it should go down quiet fast. Don't worry if Cinna dies, that's the
    only character that they can hit for more then 10 damage. This fight should only
    last around 5 hits. King Leo and his two men often just use magic, so you might
    find yourself unscratched at the end of this duel.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, King Leo will run off and Blank and Zidane will get into an
    argument. This will tell you a little about how this world really is. Then they
    will have a sword fight. Look at the Side Quests section for more details on
    this sword fight. Keep trying until you get around 90 out of 100, the crowd will
    give you more money that way. If you don't get what you want the first time, say
    "Yes" when the crowd asks for an encore performance. After you are happy with
    what you got, the screen will change.
    
    You come back with Zidane and Blank in Alexandrian armor, and two guards
    "sleeping" on the floor. (As so to speak.) They will have some funny
    conversation, and you will find out how you two plan to capture Princess Garnet.
    Then you will both walk into a middle corridor. Before you go up the stairs,
    equip the Mage Masher. Then, go up the stairs and you will see a hooded girl.
    Zidane will converse, and then you have the option of letting her pass or
    examining her; Either one will do. In the end, we will find out that she is
    Princess Garnet!
    
    Then the comic relief will finally arrive, Zorn and Thorn! Walk to the Queen's
    lookout, they will! Oh great, now I am talking like Thorn... At any rate, Zorn
    and Thorn will report that Princess Garnet has run off, only after the Captain
    of the Knights of Pluto gets "One upped" by Beatrix. Then Queen Brahne will
    summon the Captain of the Knights of Pluto, whose default name is Steiner. She
    will ask for you to find Princess Garnet.
    
    Steiner will ask for the Knights of Pluto to assemble but it's to no avail., the
    only two that are in the castle are in their... err... Anyway, it ends up in
    Steiner yelling at the two Knights. (You already hate his personality, right?)
    Then you will have control of Steiner. Go back up the stairs, right at the fork,
    and back into the Queen's lookout. Talk to the Queen, and she will give you a
    Silk Shirt. However, this is only if you got a good rating in the sword fight.
    Then backtrack down to where the two Pluto Knights "assembled," and save you're
    game in the room to the east.
    
    After this, we have another small quest to do. If you find all nine Knights of
    Pluto, Garnet will give you an Elixir. (Very useful item later in the game.)
    Look in the Side Quests section for more detail on this. Elixir's are VERY
    useful at the end of the game, and it is highly advisable that you do this.
    After you find them it is time to find the Princess.
    
    Go north from the corridor with the stairs and it will bring us to a very square
    room with the Queen's (ugly) painting in the middle. Go over to it, down the
    stairs, and south to reach the outside of this castle. Walk down the next screen
    and we will see a small water fountain. Go west from here and Steiner will
    comment on the play almost being over. In the next screen, follow the path west
    to the tower. Then go down the dungeon-like hall and all the way up the spiral
    stairs.
    
    Steiner will talk to himself some more (he loves doing that) and we see the
    Princess being chased by a thief. Then we have another beautiful and funny FMV.
    After this, the Princess will fall on you and go through a door. Follow her and
    she will bump into Ruby. They will talk a little bit, and you will have control
    of Zidane again. Talk to Ruby and she will start lecturing you about something.
    Garnet then goes by Ruby and down the stairs. Follow her.
    
    You might remember this next room. This is the room where you fought the Masked
    Man (Baku). Watch as events unfold; Princess Garnet WANTS you to capture her.
    Then Cinna will come in, and Steiner will finally find out which room Garnet is
    in. Cinna will then show you an escape hatch that leads down to engine room. The
    three will jump in, and then Steiner and one of his "Knights" will come in. The
    Knight, who is really Blank in disguise, will get "stuck" in the escape hatch.
    Haha. Steiner will find another way to get down there, I can promise you that!
    
    Then we go back to Zidane, Garnet, and that ugly guy with a hammer. What was his
    name again? Oh, Cinna! Zidane and Garnet will have an idle conversation, which
    ends in Zidane truthfully telling her that he is falling for her. Now it is time
    to get some items before we proceed to the next room. Go a little forward from
    where you are to the engine with a wheel. You will get a "?" icon. (Or rather
    known as a choices icon.) Press X and you will have two choices to either move
    the wheel to the right, or to the left. Move it to the right, and Cinna will
    yell at you and tell you to turn it back. You will automatically do so. Then,
    move it to the left, and yet again Cinna will yell at you, and you will turn it
    back. Two treasure chests will drop this time, however. The first is in plain
    view south next to the engine on the bottom floor. You should be able to see it.
    Walk around and down the stairs, then collect the Phoenix Down over there.
    Afterwards, go back over to the stairs and go right of them to be behind the
    engine. You should find a field icon. Collect the Phoenix Pinion, and finally
    proceed to the next room.
    
    You will find Steiner in the next room and his "Knight" on the other side of the
    room. Steiner will think it is one of his Pluto Knights, but it really is Blank!
    Then, with Hammer Man and Blank, you will fight Steiner, Captain of the Pluto
    Knights. (Oh great... the epic play rubbed off on me!)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Steiner I
    HP: 175
    Steal: Leather Hat, Silk Shirt
    Party: Zidane (1), Cinna (1), Blank (1)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Another (very) easy boss! He is almost as easy as Baku. His attacks do around
    the twenties in damage. He might focus on one character, but for the most part
    he attacks everyone evenly. Have all three of them steal from Steiner until you
    get the Silk Shirt and Leather Hat. They can be used a little further in the
    game, and sold after that. Once you have both of the items, hack away on
    Steiner. If Zidane's life gets low (20 HP left), have Cinna throw a potion his
    way to heal him. Blank and Cinna are not permanent characters, so we don't care
    as much about them. They both can die for all we care! After you have taken 175
    damage off of him, he will use Armor Break (you actually get to use this useless
    sword art later in the game) and breaks Blank's armor. Oglop's will fly out and
    on to the ground.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In another comical scene, everyone hates Oglops! The exception to everyone is
    Zidane and Garnet, who manage to narrowly escape. Then the screen goes back to
    the play and we see that King Leo is going to kill Marcus. Meanwhile, we go back
    to Zidane and Garnet. They say that this is a dead end, but Cinna points them to
    a lift. Afterwards, Steiner runs in and takes another one. Then we see that they
    both ended up in the play! They improvise and we see a hilarious scene. The
    Queen is still at her lookout, and it seems she cannot connect the dots that
    Garnet is on stage!
    
    Then we go back to Vivi and Puck. Two Knights of Pluto, or should I say Dumb and
    Dumber (?), finally see that Vivi and Puck snuck in and go running after them.
    It all ends in them going on stage, and Vivi using his black magic. He
    accidentally hits Garnet's hood instead of the Knights, and Garnet throws her
    hood off. I just hope that the Queen can recognize her now! Afterwards, Steiner
    will finally get over her fake death (he thought it was real?) and more yelling
    will occur. Lastly, Steiner will not comply with Garnet's wishes to stop
    following her. Or should I say stalking her? Another battle is coming your way.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Steiner II
    HP: 160
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane (1), Vivi (1), Garnet (1), Marcus (1)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    This is another very easy boss fight. This time Steiner has a little less HP,
    but he has two of his Knights with him. Take the Knights out first. They have
    around 50 HP, so they should be one hit kills for Zidane, since he should be
    doing around 80 damage now. (With the Mage Masher, of course.) Marcus, on the
    other hand, might need Garnet to give the other Knight a "love tap" to finish
    him off. After that, have Vivi cast fire on Steiner. This will severely weaken
    him, as Vivi does around 100 damage. Then have Zidane, or Marcus, or whoever you
    can first finish off Steiner.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, you might here your Playstation make weird noises, as it always
    does when a FMV comes up. Boy is this one good, like all the others! Now we go
    to battling against Steiner for a third time. I know this is getting boring as
    hell, these fights are so easy. Just... watch.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Steiner III
    HP: N/A
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane (1), Vivi (1), Garnet (1), Marcus (1)
    Difficulty: N/A
    
    You might be wondering "Why doesn't Steiner have any HP?" Simple answer: In this
    boss fight, all you have to do is survive three turns of the bomb growing. After
    that the fight will end. Everyone will tell Steiner that there is a bomb right
    behind him, but Steiner just thinks it's a trick. He's very right, that is
    something that Zidane would do. (You'll see later in the game...) Just have
    everyone do physical attacks on Steiner. You can't steal because SFX is still
    there (Why!?) and there is no point in doing fancy magic or anything. After it
    grows three times, this "fight" is over.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Finally, after it grows three times, and is bigger then Brahne, Steiner will
    notice it and the battle will be over. It will explode, and from the Queen's
    view it looks like the bomb completely obliberated the ship. It looks bad for
    you at that moment... you could be playing the role at the obese Brahne.
    However, the ship comes out of the smoke, fastly falling. It's going to crash!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
                                  3.3  -  Evil Forest
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Enemies:
    --------
    Goblin (35 HP)
    Fang (70 HP)
    Dendobrium (175 HP)
    Plant Spiders (50 HP)
    Baku (Boss)
    Prison Cage (Boss)
    Plant Brain (Boss)
    
    You see that Zidane fell off the ship, but he seems to be all right. Next we go
    inside the wrecked ship and it seems that everyone (at least all the main
    characters) are okay, but Vivi and Garnet our missing. While they are getting
    the wounded out, have Zidane go over and talk to Cinna for information. After he
    finds out that Garnet and Vivi are missing, the moogle tells you about ATEs.
    Press select to see Garnet and Vivi running from some monster. The monster will
    make a shadow over Garnet's head. Oo... spooky.
    
    You cannot go inside the ship currently, one of the 'enero's tells you to look
    outside for Garnet. So, save at the moogle then enter the forest by going
    through the log on the bottom left hand corner of the screen. You will be in a
    swamp-like place. It is advisable that at this screen you get to at least level
    3. The simple reason for this is because the next boss will be hard, and you
    develop a lot in those 3 levels, even though it doesn't take a while to get the
    experience. Also, you need to know how random battles work, and how the battle
    systems works. Those first bosses were suppose to teach you, but you can sharpen
    your skills more by leveling up.
    
    When you are ready, go around the swamp screen and you will see Steiner trying
    to take on the plant alone. Then we have another boss battle...
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Prison Cage
    HP: 500
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane (3), Steiner (1)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Prison Cage can be a rather annoying boss if you let him be. He absorbs HP from
    Garnet to heal himself. If he absorbs all of her HP then it's Game Over. So you
    have to keep Garnet alive throughout the entire fight. He also uses Right and
    Left Stem, but that damage is minimal on Zidane and Steiner. Now, you might
    notice that Zidane has Tranced. This is very good because he can use Free Energy
    on the Prison Cage for massive damage. So Zidane's role in this battle is to use
    Free Energy until he loses Trance. At that time, he will assume the role of
    hitting the Prison Cage and giving Garnet Potions when she has one third (1/3)
    life left. Steiner's role in this battle is to attack and throw potions to
    Garnet when needed. Once Zidane gets out of Trance, all Steiner needs to do is
    hack away. Use Potions and Phoenix Downs as needed, but Right and Left Stem are
    so pathetic you most likely won't even have to.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The Prison Cage will then swing up and out so he doesn't get killed. Steiner
    starts mourning over Garnet again. Vivi says that he just froze, and got scared.
    Then, after the Prison Cage stashes Garnet, he comes back for more. This time,
    however, he has Vivi in his cage.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Prison Cage II
    HP: 500
    Steal: Broadsword, Leather Wrist
    Party: Zidane (3), Steiner (1)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Now he has Vivi in his cage! You might think this fight will be harder, because
    Zidane is not in Trance, but it isn't. Vivi uses Fire on the Prison Cage for
    around 75 damage per hit every turn. This more then makes up for not being in
    Trance. Have both Steiner and Zidane hack away with attacks. You also must
    remember, though, that the Prison Cage can kill Vivi and give you a Game Over!
    You have to keep him alive, just like Garnet. Throw potions with Zidane when
    needed. The reason not to have Steiner do it is because Steiner does more damage
    then Zidane.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the second fight, the Prison Cage will die and Vivi will be free. Before
    he dies, though, he leaves a going away present. He sprays everyone with venom!
    Now that they are sick, Zidane figures he has to bring them back to the ship to
    cure them.
    
    Blank takes care of Vivi's venom. Then they converse about how Zidane saved him.
    Vivi is then free of the venom and healthy. After this, Zenero imprisons Steiner
    in a room and gives him poison to drink. Oh... that's just how Steiner saw it
    as. What really happened was Zenero gave him a Remedy. However... the first part
    might be true. Anyway, Steiner decides to drink the Remedy, still thinking that
    it is poison.
    
    Then the screen goes back to Zidane. He will be talking to Baku about Garnet. He
    says that he wants to find her but Baku protests, saying that we need to wait
    for everyone to be healed before looking for her. They argue some more, and then
    you have control of Zidane. Open the chest on the bridge to the right to receive
    the Bronze Gloves. Then go down the stairs and talk to Blank. He'll tell you
    that Vivi is doing better, and that Vivi wants to talk to you. Go into the room
    to the right.
    
    Vivi and Zidane will talk a little. Zidane will try to the play the "father
    role," and promises Vivi that he will find Garnet. This makes Vivi better,
    because it was partially his fault the Prison Cage got away the first time. I am
    sure between Vivi's Fire power, Zidane's Free Energies, and Steiner's hits, the
    plant would of died of shock. Blah... I'm deviating off topic...
    
    Get the chest in the northern part of the room, then walk outside the room.
    Zidane will think that he should of never made that promise to Vivi, as finding
    Garnet in this forest is seriously like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.
    He'll then ogle on her beauty some more, and decides that since he needs to
    stick to his promise, and maybe get a hero kiss, he might as well go out and
    find her.
    
    Talk to Blank about this, and he will advise you to talk to Baku before leaving.
    Go west to a new room. You will see Benero and Zenero guarding Steiner's prison,
    or room. They won't allow you talk to Steiner at this current time, so go down
    the stairs. Then go east and to the next room. Baku will be there, and they will
    talk a little while. Then he will tell Zidane that he is going to really do "a
    number on him." He will then tell you to go to the cargo room. (I'm just saying
    what he said politely.) This is the room you were just in. Once there, you will
    engage Baku in a boss battle.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Baku
    HP: 200
    Steal: Iron Sword, Hi-Potion
    Party: Zidane (3)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Baku is almost as easy as Steiner, and that's saying a lot! His attacks do
    around 25 damage on Zidane. This is next to nothing. On top of that, he trips up
    sometimes and doesn't do any damage on Zidane! You want to start off by stealing
    until you get both the Iron Sword and Hi-Potion. The Iron Sword is better then
    the Broadsword Steiner has equipped and the Hi-Potion can be sold or used when
    you get to higher levels. Overall, both items are more then worth a little
    punishment with Baku. After you get both items, hack away with Zidane. He only
    has 200 HP, so it won't take very long.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Baku will then let Zidane leave, so go south of this room and you will meet
    Blank. Converse (talk) with Blank and he will tell you that the storage room is
    unlocked to go pick up Steiner. He will also tell you that Baku was laughing
    when he was talking to Blank. Go back to the room that the 'enero's were
    guarding and you will be able to go inside. Talk to Steiner, and he will agree
    (sort of) to go with you. He then tells you that "Master" Vivi should come along
    too, his Black Magic might prove rather helpful.
    
    Go back into the storage room once more and pick up the ether, then go back to
    Vivi's bedroom and converse with him. He will also join the party. Now we have a
    threesome... all we need is Garnet and we... err... Anyway, Steiner asks Vivi
    about something to do with a magic sword. Now go back to the cargo room (where
    you fought Baku) and go south this time to another room. You will find Blank,
    and you two will talk a little. He will give you a note from Baku about
    abilities, then we have a tutorial on them. After that, it's time to leave for
    Evil Forest.
    
    Once you are outside, talk to Cinna if you need any supplies (You shouldn't) and
    talk to the moogle to save. Then, go back to where the Prison Cage was. This
    time, go past it and follow the path until you get to a spring. This will
    completely restore your HP and MP if you drink it. Very useful, because you
    won't have to use tents here. You will also meet up with Monty. Save again, and
    then go to the following screen.
    
    You will almost exclusively fight Dendodrium here. This is a flower type
    creature. It can use Pollen and such on you, but it is pretty easy to defeat.
    You can steal tents from it, and I advise you do so. Tents can sell for a lot,
    and they can be used later in the game. Try to level up maybe to at least 3 for
    everyone. Have Steiner and Vivi use spell, because you can walk back to the
    spring and completely restore your HP and MP anytime you want. Obviously have
    Zidane steal tents. This is a fantastic spot to level up at.
    
    When you are ready, go to the following screen and you will see a small FMV
    about the deadly looking plants that lurk here. Follow the screens until you
    reach the boss. There is a spawn point right before you reach the boss' screen,
    so you will always get attacked by a Dendodrium. It doesn't matter much, but you
    do want to be in your very best shape before you fight the upcoming boss. It
    doesn't matter if he uses Pollen on you, just make sure Zidane doesn't have
    darkness or his physical attacks will be useless. Once ready, go to the next
    area. You will see that the Plant Brain is there, and s/he is guarding Princess
    Garnet. Garnet is badly poisoned, so she won't be able to move. Looks like the
    only way is to defeat the brain of the most feared forest in the entire mist
    continent!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Plant Brain
    HP: 900
    Steal: Iron Helm, Eye Drops
    Party: Zidane (4), Steiner (3), Vivi (3), Blank (3)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    The Plant Brain is a pretty easy boss battle if you use your skills correctly.
    All his HP makes him seem like he will be very hard, but he isn't because of
    that. He is because he is the first enemy you will fight that does "party"
    damage. His Thunder will attack everyone. His physical attacks aren't too
    shabby, either. However, Plant Brain has a weakness to fire. Vivi can cast Fire
    and Steiner can do his Fire Sword for massive damage. You will get around 400
    damage with Steiner, and 120 damage with Vivi. So why even give it a Semi-
    medium? The reason for this is because you will want to steal the Iron Helm from
    him, so you might have to survive a lot of attacks. Blank will come in after a
    lot of his HP is gone and help out. From here, Plant Brain is almost dead. Have
    both Zidane and Blank steal if you haven't gotten the Iron Helm already. If you
    have, or when you do, give Steiner and Vivi the green light to finish the Plant
    Brain off. A big note here is that Plant Brain will often put darkness on you.
    This blinds you when you attack. I would like to say that this is only when you
    attack him PHYSICALLY, not MAGICALLY. Magic is not affected by darkness. So,
    have Steiner and Vivi weaken the Plant Brain for Blank to come. Then Blank and
    Zidane steal until they get the Iron Helm, while Steiner and Vivi defend (press
    left) or heal. After that, have Vivi or Steiner finish him off. Pretty easy,
    huh?
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, Steiner will pick up Garnet and give her Blank's medicine. Then
    all of the Plant Spiders in the forest will arrive. The party will obviously
    run. Then you have control, the first two Plant Spiders you will have to defeat.
    They are pretty easy, just use your magic and attacks respectively. They give
    out pretty good XP, too. You might want to fight a couple more before you leave.
    
    After the battles, Blank and Zidane will get a couple words in with each other.
    Then all of the Plant Spider's start to get to them. We then see another
    beautiful FMV where Blank gets behind, throws a map to Zidane, and becomes
    stone. Their is a real wonder to how he got behind, and how Steiner, who has to
    be one of the slowest characters in the game, not to mention him holding Garnet,
    is ahead of him. Movie magic... they say.
    
    There will be a lot of dialogue in the next couple of minutes. Most of it being
    funny. Sir Rusta-- err... Steiner will start to argue with Zidane. Then Garnet
    will wake up and thank everyone. Finally, everyone gets sleep besides the
    Captain of the Pluto Knights, who stands guard the whole knigh-- night!
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    You are now on the classic Final Fantasy world map. This time you have to call a
    moogle via square to save and rest. You want to go to the Ice Cavern next. It is
    to the south. Once there, go right, facing the Ice Cavern, until you reach a
    gate. This will be South Gate. Inside you can find a lady that will sell you
    potions. It is highly advisable that you get Zidane's level to 7 before you go
    into the Ice Cavern. Just Zidane, though, not everyone else. Killing all the
    enemies around here can easily do this. Use and buy potions as needed. Then go
    back to the Ice Cavern.

    Enemies:
    --------
    Fang (70 HP)
    Flan (75 HP)
    Cave Imp (75 HP)
    Wyerd (125 HP)
    Black Waltz #1 (Boss)
    Sealion (Boss)
    
    When you first enter, everyone will start chatting about the cave. Vivi will
    talk about it and then say that his grandpa told him everything about it.
    Steiner will say that they will have to thank him when they get out of this
    cave, but that is a touchy subject as Vivi says that he is dead. Leave it to
    Steiner to say that. Anyway, Garnet will run inside and look at a crystal,
    saying that it is absolutely beautiful. Meanwhile, Rusty-- err... Steiner will
    yell at her not too. Then we have control of Zidane.
    
    In the first room, Go up around the crystal and above the treasure chest, then
    press X on the field icon and jump down to the chest. Collect the tent then go
    further into the cavern. The enemies here are pretty easy, besides the Wyerds.
    The Wyerds are tough, but you only get them when you run into the winds in this
    area. Try to go around or quickly go through the winds, as a couple of these
    battles might very well be your last. Use magic, as the upcoming boss fight will
    only be Zidane.
    
    Once you are in the next room, go east and run up to the ice wall. You will see
    a "?" icon. Press X and Vivi will burn it with his magic (at no cost to his MP).
    Get the ether in the chest, then go down and around and get a potion in the
    other chest. Then go north more and to the next room. Dodge the wind as you go
    by, the Wyerds can kill.
    
    In this area, go east and open the treasure chest in plain view, then examine
    the icicle after you get it. Vivi will use his fire and the icicle will move to
    the other chest. Get the Mage Masher in it, then go left and to the upper middle
    of the room. Look at the ice wall there and have Vivi burn it. Take the Elixir
    in it, then go to the upper right of the room to proceed to the next area.
    
    This room looks even wyeirder! Go northeastern and check the ice wall. After
    Vivi does his thing, go down the path and pick up the Leather Wrist there, then
    go all the way back to where you were. I advise healing before you go down,
    because there are a couple winds in the path going down and up. After this, get
    the other treasure chest in the room for a Phoenix Down. Then, go up and we will
    find a fork in the road.
    
    Go left and you will find a moogle frozen in ice. Have Vivi burn it, and the
    moogle will be very mad that you burned him, but at the same time relieved
    because he is free of his cold entrapment. You can save here, and look at the
    ATE for all the basics on everything this game has to offer. After this, go back
    to the fork and head right this time. On this path everyone will fall asleep.
    Zidane will be the first to wake up. Heal up with potions and then head up the
    path for another boss fight.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Black Waltz #1 & Sealion
    HP: 250 (Black Waltz #1), 500 (Sealion)
    Steal: Silk Shirt, (Black Waltz #1), Ether, Mythril Dagger (Sealion)
    Party: Zidane (7)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    At first, this seems like a hell of a battle, because you are only controlling
    Zidane, but it really isn't. Zidane will trance in this battle; his gauge goes
    bonkers when he gets hit by an attack. When he does, this battle will be easy.
    But first, let me explain the enemy. Black Waltz #1 heals the Sealion with his
    Blizzard spell when you try to attack it. He also fires Blizzard at you for
    around 75 damage. The Sealion uses Tsunami, which does around 75 damage also.
    This may seem like too much, but it really isn't. When the battle starts, just
    have Zidane steal from the Sealion. The Ether and Mythril Dagger are very
    valuable to your party. Heal when you get low on health. When he trances, it is
    finally time to kill. If you haven't gotten the Mythril Dagger yet, then reset.
    Have Zidane use Free Energy on the SEALION. It will do around 350 damage. Now
    you might be asking "What? It will get healed with Blizzard!" Simple answer is
    that the Black Waltz will only be able to heal 150 HP back. This means that you
    make 200 HP in the process. And how much HP does the Sealion have? Just 500 HP.
    Three Free Energies and he is toast (or frozen). Black Waltz is really easy to
    defeat with him out of the picture. Just use regular attacks. Now, if you hadn't
    done that little trick and ended up killing Black Walts first, Sealion will go
    bonkers and do crazy attacks on you. So, the only real easy way to make this
    battle cake is to take out Sealion first.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Zorn and Thorn, our favorite comic relief, will tell you, in one order or the
    other, that you have defeated Black Waltz #1 but more are on the way. So, this
    was the plan Queen Brahne had. After this, Zidane gets back to the party and
    they wake up. Steiner accuses Zidane of doing... stuff to the princess. I'll
    just leave it at that. Hate this Steiner, we do. Zidane will hide the fight with
    the Black Waltz, for some strange reason.
    
    Now it is time to get out of this Popsicle. Go back to where you fought Black
    Waltz #1 and Sealion, then go all the way up and out. The party will get to
    talking again, and Zidane will teach Garnet how to talk like a regular. Then
    Zidane decides that we need a new name for Princess Garnet so no one is
    suspicious. The default name for her is Dagger, because of Zidane's big blade.
    (That didn't come out right.) At any rate, you will see a town in the distance.
    The party decides to go there.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    We have a couple things we can do before we go to the city. The first one is to
    find Mu, a friendly monster. He will ask you for one ore, which you should most
    likely have. Give it to him, and he will give you 10 AP. That is 10 AP towards
    your Bandit ability, which is a nice support ability that will make stealing
    items a lot easier. The Mu can be found in the center of the forest that is
    right next to Dali, not the one next to the Ice Cavern. It might take a while to
    get him.
    
    In the mean time it is highly advisable that you get around 14,000 Gil. Why? You
    need to buy 99 wrists. So take this opportunity to level up until you get that
    amount of money. I know it might seem outrageous but if you want to make this
    game a lot easier then do it. We can synthesis Cotton Robes for 1,000 Gil, and
    you have to synthesis both Wrists and Steepled Hats. If you look at the numbers,
    it costs 130 Gil per Wrist and 260 Gil per Steepled Hat. That means that, in
    total, it costs 1,390 Gil to make a Cotton Robe. You can sell these for 2,000
    Gil! That means you make 610 Gil in the process. If you do this 99 times, that's
    just over 60,000 Gil. This money will make your life a lot easier at Treno. By
    the by, you can synthesis these at Lindblum, and get Steepled Hats, but not
    wrists, there.
    
    It's only optional, though, but it will make everything a lot easier in the end.
    Another thing that you should do now is go talk to the man in observatory. He is
    right next to Dali and his house is on the bottom of the hill. Look at the small
    figure of an air ship and he will tell you that he will give it to you if you
    give him three rare coffee types. I will update you on where these are as we
    progress in the game. (And you can find it in the side quests section.)
    
    Now that you have all the optional stuff done, enter Dali!

    When you enter the small town of Dali, you will notice that it is quite
    peaceful. At any rate, it has been a long day for our party (didn't they all
    pass out a little while ago?) and they decide to go to the inn to sleep. When
    they get inside, they will see that the innkeeper is asleep. Zidane will wake
    him up, and he will stare at Vivi. No big deal. He will point to the rooms.
    Everyone will go inside, and Zidane and Steiner will have another argument. By
    the time they even look to see how Vivi is doing, he is asleep. They finally
    decide to do the same.
    
    When Zidane wakes up, he hears a pretty voice singing a melody. Go around the
    room and open the chests, then look at the handful of ATEs. One is Dagger trying
    to talk regular and the other is the kids being scared of Vivi. Go outside and
    go on over to Vivi. He will be right next to the windmill. After they talk,
    you'll get another ATE of Dagger trying to talk normally. Run on over to the
    shop, which is opposite the inn at the entrance, and Zidane will give her a
    couple tips to talking normally.
    
    Now, check the shop. Buy all the new equipment that you want. Also, if you
    decided to synthesis Cotton Robes, buy as many Wrists as you can (99). Then,
    walk back to the inn and to the bedroom. Talk to Dagger for a bit. Then the
    screen will change to Steiner. He want's to get information on where he can find
    a ship that will take him to Alexandria. He will do all the chores for the lady,
    just to him to find out that all he needs to do is talk to Mr. Morrid, who owns
    a air ship.
    
    You then come back to Dagger and Zidane. They are starting to get worried
    because Vivi has not come back. Go outside to the main entrance and you will
    here a Chocobo. Go over to where Vivi was. You will hear crying. Zidane will
    check the hole and Vivi will tell him that he was grabbed down there. Zidane
    will then reassure Vivi and tell him that they will a way down there. Go inside
    the windmill now. Go behind it in the room and you should find Aries. A field
    icon should pop up if you run around behind it. Then, check the south of the
    room to find a manhole. Zidane will open it, and you will go down underground
    via the ladder.
    
    Climb down the ladder and go over to the elevator. It may not look like one, it
    is just a platform that will go down. Go down, and get the 155 Gil around there.
    Then follow the tunnel to the next screen. You will see two men talking about
    how they found Vivi. Then they will carry Vivi away. Zidane will make some
    racket, but it seems that they didn't care. Dagger will pull him back. She will
    then tell him that they shouldn't cause trouble yet. She then recognizes the
    markings on the barrels. Go inside the little booth, where to men where, and
    take the treasure.
    
    In the next room, go on top of the crates to get the treasures. Then go onto the
    next room. Save at the moogle if you wish, then look at the wheel. A potion will
    fall from it. Collect it then climb the crates all the way up to the other
    treasure. Collect the ether then hop back down. Go further and you will hear a
    muffled cry by some boxes. You will find out that Vivi is in one of them! How...
    weird...
    
    At the northern part in this room, there is a double door. When you open it,
    mist will come in and you will fight some ghosts. No big deal. Don't use magic,
    and focus on one at a time. Go inside the room where the mist came from to find
    three chests. Collect them and go back to the room below. Then follow the
    corridor down.
    
    You will see a ton of mages in this next room. They look almost identical to
    Vivi, only they are much bigger. At first, we think that they are merely dolls.
    Poor Vivi. Someone will come up from behind the threesome. Zidane will run into
    one of the machines and the three of them will get boxed up. Then we hit it back
    to Steiner. He is talking to Morrid, which is the coffee guy. He despises
    Steiner for some reason that we should all know... Any enemy of my enemy is my
    friend. =)
    
    Mr. Morrid will go back to his house. You now have control of Steiner. Run back
    inside and you will see the two arguing, almost like when Steiner argues with
    Zidane. After some arguing, Mr. Morrid will tell Steiner that there is a ship
    getting loaded now. Then go back to Dali. Steiner will be running towards the
    loaders. They will freak out, thinking Steiner is some weirdo with his rusty
    armor, and run away from him. Steiner will then see a barrel. You now have two
    choices of what to do. You can observe the barrel or poke in it with your sword.
    Either option is funny if you hate Steiner. After this Black Waltz #2 will
    arrive, ready to take Dagger.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Black Waltz #2
    HP: 1,000
    Steal: Leather Plate, Steepled Hat
    Party: Zidane (7), Vivi (7), Dagger (7), Steiner (7)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    The second Black Waltz is a lot more powerful then the first, but not as smart.
    He doesn't summon anything and make life miserable for you. All he does is
    attack. But boy does he attack! He does three spells, them obviously being Fire,
    Thunder, and Blizzard. After you take enough of his HP away they will turn into
    the 'ra forms, Fira, Thundara, and Blizzara. He also uses Osmoses to drain MP
    from someone at this time. The good thing about this fight is that, unlike the
    previous battle, you have a full party with you. He has some good stuff to
    steal, so have Zidane steal until he has at least the Leather Plate. Then he can
    start hacking away. Steiner should use Fire Sword until the Black Waltz says
    uncle, or until he runs out of MP. At which case, he should just hack away with
    Zidane. Dagger will take the role of a healer, since she is suppose to be a
    healer, and has Cure. Use Cure as needed. Lastly, Vivi needs to attack and heal.
    But DO NOT use magic on him. Why? If he does, the Black Waltz will counterattack
    with the same magic on the entire party. This is very bad and not worth it. So,
    Vivi is a healer and attacker. With Zidane and Steiner hacking away, and Dagger
    Curing, this battle should be pretty easy.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After this battle, you have the option of resting in the inn or boarding the
    cargo ship. I highly advise that heal and save before you board. Once you decide
    to board, Zidane will offer to go ask the men if they can take a ride. Steiner
    will say that he should go, and Zidane already knows that the plane 'ain't going
    to Lindblum. Steiner will make a lame excuse for going. Then they will talk a
    little more, and Zidane says that the ship should be heading towards Alexandria
    but to trust him. The ship then boots up so they decide to board the ship. Vivi
    goes first. Then Dagger hesitantly goes second. Zidane goes third and
    "accidentally" grabs Dagger's butt and says "Ooo... soft."
    
    We then see a nice FMV of the ship leaving. Then we go back to the one-perverted
    mice. He explains that he didn't do it on purpose. Then we see that Vivi is
    getting sick and they decide to go inside. Then Dagger says "I trust you,
    Zidane" and Zidane says to himself "I get the feeling she doesn't trust me." I
    wonder why...
    
    Then they see that the ship is being run by mindless black mages. Vivi tries to
    converse with them but it's to no avail. Vivi starts to cry, and then Zidane
    gets on one knee like he is proposing to Dagger and tells Vivi that it is all
    right. After that, we find out that Zidane's plan is to take control of the ship
    and ride it to Lindblum. You will then take control. Walk down the hall to the
    ladder and go on up.
    
    We will see Steiner mourning over taking off without Dagger. Walk a little
    closer and Zidane will give him a reality check. It seems that the scary man
    made the loaders fly in a hurry. Then Steiner says that Zidane will be hanged
    for his actions, and guards the hatch leading down to the engine room. Walk over
    to the piloting room to the east. Then Steiner will talk a little about his
    "duty as a knight."
    
    Zidane finally jerks the ship and at the same time jerks Steiner imagination
    back to reality. Then we see the FMV of another Black Waltz. I promise this is
    the last one! More yelling will occur back in the piloting room. Steiner will
    try to grab Zidane but he is as swift as a monkey! Then all the black mages come
    to the piloting room, they all look blankly pissed off. Then they all go to the
    bow (front) of the ship. Then we see the Black Waltz swoop down and slightly
    electrocute Vivi. Then all the black mages come, protecting Vivi for some
    astounding reason. Then a gorgeous FMV will come in, and we will see the Black
    Waltz destroy all the Black Mages but Vivi. This is almost as sad as that
    play... Speaking of play, it's time to wrestle the final Black Waltz! Before you
    run out EQUIP THE BANDIT ABILITY!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Black Waltz #3
    HP: 1,150
    Steal: Linen Cuirass, Silver Gloves, Steepled Hat
    Party: Zidane (7), Vivi (7), Steiner (7)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    There's only three, so there won't be another one of these things. The last one
    is always the most powerful. Doesn't matter much, as Vivi will trance. Now he
    has double black magic, he will throw out two spells in one turn! Oh right, back
    to the boss. This Black Waltz uses Fira, Blizzara, and Thundara at while, unlike
    the other two. He also does physical attacks sometimes. Overall though, they do
    around 100-150 damage each. Back to the fighters. You will see that the Black
    Waltz has some pretty good stuff to steal. Have Zidane stick to stealing and
    healing (as needed). Steiner should use Fire Sword, not Blizzard Sword, as the
    first does more damage to him. Vivi should stick with Fire all the way. Steiner
    will do around 280 damage and Vivi should do around 115 damage. Add up those
    numbers to the total, and you will see that he should be toast in no time. I got
    both the Linen Cuirass and Silver Gloves, but that was just a combination of
    luck and my bandit skill, the latter being less useful.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    We then see Black Waltz #3 basically surrender and fly off the ship. Then Zidane
    says to himself that Dagger is going to South Gate, so she is going for
    Lindblum! After this, Zidane comforts Vivi and we get back to our famous comic
    relief, Zorn and Thorn! They talk some nonsense and then jump off when they see
    the Black Waltz going right for them. Not fret, though, they will survive!
    
    Meanwhile the Black Waltz will be malfunctioning and takes control of Zorn and
    Thorns ship. Then we see Zidane talk to Dagger about South Gate, and how it
    might close on them. Then Sir Rustalot will run in and tell them the obvious,
    that the Black Waltz is heading straight for them! Steiner punches the speed up
    and we see another beautiful FMV where things happen opposite to what Zidane had
    predicted. Vivi fends the Black Waltz off as he is about to destroy him. The
    gate closes and they are both through. As the Black Waltz is about to destroy
    them, he sets fire to his own ship and blows up! We then see the ship fly to
    Lindblum. They chat for a little while about everything that has happened, and
    then we see a beautiful FMV of Lindblum.

    When you enter, the castle looks so big! Not, that's only what they say. The
    only thing "big" about this place is the town. Anyway, after some more idle chat
    two guards walk over to the party. Dagger says that she is Princess Garnet, but
    the guards don't believe her. Shows how much they know! Anyway, Dagger shows
    them proof that she is the princess by showing them a artifact that looks
    identical to the "falcon claw." The guards call a minister to come, while Zidane
    and Steiner argue about which one looks scruffier. The minister comes, and
    Dagger address's him as "Uncle" for some reason that I do not know. Then he
    tells them that the Regent is waiting for them.
    
    In the next screen, follow the minister to the lift. Then you will go to the
    upper level as they talk about Lindblum a little. Then they will finally meet
    the regent. He is an oglop! He will go down to meet Dagger, but Steiner will
    punch him right back to the throne! We then find out that someone took Hilda,
    Regent Cid's wife, and their ship, then turned the Regent into a oglop! That
    sounds suspicious. This entire meeting will end in the Regent telling everyone
    to get some rest. The Minister then offers food.
    
    Zidane, who doesn't like the finer things in life, goes over to a bar. It seems
    he has been there before, as Bobo and him converse in idle conversation. Then
    Zidane starts hitting on a waiter. The rat-faced women will tell him that he is
    ruining everyone's appetite and they will start arguing. It seems that they are
    past friends, but Zidane can't remember because he has been out (or saw) to many
    girls. He finally remembers that it is Freya (Or any other name you could think
    of) and Zidane starts talking vaguely with her about things. I really like this
    Freya... Now if she would only focus her anger on Freya that would be splendid!
    We find out that there is a festival hunt being held here tomorrow. Then he gets
    some shut-eye.
    
    We then kick it back to the Regent and Dagger. They talk about how Queen Brahne
    has been acting strange, and how she decided to go aboard the Lindblum Theater
    ship. We then find out that Regent Cid asked Baku and his band to capture the
    Princess! It seems that it is the Regent's job to protect the Princess. He then
    talks about how Baku and him go "way back" and how the play was a "perfect
    cover."
    
    Then Dagger tells the Regent about what they saw in Dali. The Regent, being
    somewhat cocky, says that their air fleet could obliterate anything that Brahne
    could think up. Then we move to the construction site for the Regent's ships. We
    then find out the real truth of how he came to be an oglop, and how he lost the
    ship. Pretty Zidane-like, eh? They will talk more. It will end with the Regent
    saying, "I just wonder why the ship crashed. Baku has good men under him."
    
    The screen pulls up with one of those good men, Zidane. Zidane and Vivi will
    talk for a bit. Just look at all the blue letters. This game really thinks you
    are completely ignorant and gives you all the important directions in blue.
    Zidane ends the conversation with "Go get a girl" which is all he seems to be
    thinking about...
    
    We then get one of those all-important ATEs that we cannot ignore. This one is
    pretty informative, though. You can find a lot of things you didn't know about.
    Look at all of them, and you will be glad you did so. At least look at the
    Synthesis one, it is very important. Then select "nothing" and we will go back
    to Zidane.
    
    Walk over to the next room and talk to the moogle about mognet. You will get
    some nice mail from Ruby. Then it is time to save. Go downstairs and check the
    lower right corner of the screen to find 167 Gil on the floor. Then walk
    outside. You will see another ATE which you might find quite funny. Then we go
    back to Zidane.
    
    Go north and to the next screen. Then go northeast and under the bridge to a
    nice fountain circle. You will find an equipment shop here, a item shop, and a
    synthesis shop. Go to the equipment shop first, it should be on the eastern part
    of the screen, and have a sword over its entrance. Buy all the new and better
    equipment the shop has to offer. Buy another Mage Masher, then go northeast and
    to the synthesis shop. Make an Ogre; this weapon will help you severely when you
    fight the upcoming bosses. You do not need to buy equipment for Dagger and
    Steiner if you are low on cash, but I do advise that you get a cotton robe for
    Dagger because it has the Shell and Chemist abilities in it.
    
    If you got 99 wrists like I optionally suggested if you have more then 1,260 Gil
    now (if you don't go south outside Lindblum) then go to the equipment shop and
    buy a Steepled Hat. Then run over to the northwestern part of the area and you
    will find a synthesis shop. Make one Cotton Robe, then run back over to the
    equipment shop and sell it for 2,000 Gil. Then, buy another Steepled Hat and
    repeat the process, picking up more Steepled Hats when you get more money. This
    is a sure fire way to getting around 60,000 Gil! Leave 3 cotton robes left in
    your inventory for people to equip. Now, you might be wondering what to do with
    all this money? You'll see when disc two rolls around. You can do this trick
    again at the beginning of disc two! Buy 99 Steepled Hats from the equipment
    shop!
    
    After you are done shopping, try to look all around the districts thoroughly.
    The air cab in the district you are in is opposite to the inn that you slept in.
    When you enter to fly the cab, you will have an ATE of Vivi getting a Kupo Nut
    for free. You will also find out more about a "festival with animals." Now you
    can go exploring districts if you like. Explore the Theater District last. When
    you arrive at the Theater District, go to the bottom of the screen and to the
    next area. You should get a ATE of Steiner talking to a man that looks familiar
    to Mr. Morrid. They will talk about steam powered engines.
    
    After the ATE, run to the west part of the screen and down the stairs in the
    northern part. Then run passed the door with the clock (it is the Tantalus
    Hideout) and go down the stairs to Zidane's left. You will see that four woman
    are pushed up against some barrels and are waiting for someone to come. Talk to
    them to find out more. When you talk to one of them, Zidane will introduce
    himself as "the greatest bandit in the world." Nobody cares, and finally Lowell
    comes out. The girls yell things like "I love you" and "I want to be a slave for
    you." Then he runs back inside and an extra large moogle (it has to be a
    costume) walks out.
    
    Everyone is a hater towards the moogle, and he goes right through the "four
    person crowd." Just as Zidane is about to identify him, the costume-guy yells
    "No I'm not!" and runs off. Zidane then says it's tough being popular... how
    should he know? Anyway, go back up the two flights of stairs and go to the house
    that is opposite of the air cab station. Go down the stairs and talk to the blue
    haired man. He is Lowell and will give you his autograph. Then Lowell and
    Michael will argue with each other. Now, look in the chest to receive an ore.
    Then, look on the ground by the red chair to get a moogle suit.
    
    Now go back down the stairs and inside Tantalus's hideout this time. If you
    forgot, it is the big door with the clock over it. Zidane will go inside rather
    leisurely and start talking to himself about what to do. Then we get an ATE of
    Dagger being trapped in the guestroom. It really is for her safety, though, as
    the hunt will get bloody. Then we go back to Zidane. Bunce and Lucella, some of
    Baku's nephews and nieces, will come in the room and start talking to Zidane.
    They talk about a few things, namely going to ask Dagger out. Before you go
    back, however, you need to open all the chests in this room. There are four
    chests on the ground, and a Mini-Burmecia in the bed up the ladder.
    
    Now it is time to go see how Dagger is doing. Go back to the air cab and over to
    Lindblum Castle. You will see an ATE about Tantalus making it out of the forest,
    and talk about getting Blank's petrification status off without curing the whole
    forest. Before we continue, I would like to point out that when you get a ATE
    that is optional by pressing select, often times they are just for comic relief.
    When you get a ATE automatically, one that you have to see, it is apart of the
    story. And no, I'm trying my hardest not to give away anything here!
    
    Anyway, once you get to Lindblum Castle's air cab go south and you will be in
    the castle. Then go up the stairs and follow the red carpet to the room with the
    fountain and lift. From here, go up the stairs to Zidane's left and take the
    first left into the guestroom. Walk inside and you will see Steiner. He will
    tell you that the Princess is missing, and of course he blames it on you. Then
    he runs off and leaves you alone in the guestroom.
    
    Open the chest by the two blue single beds to get a Glass Armlet. Then, go up to
    the moogle and collect the ether in the chest near there. Then give Mogki the
    letter from Kumop. After reading it, select mognet again and you will get
    another letter. Then, save your game and head back to the statue/lift room. You
    will hear someone singing (the only time you hear a characters voice in this
    game!). Dagger is singing, and this is the same song she sung in Dali. Try to go
    on the lift but the guard will prevent you.
    
    Now it is time for Zidane's skills to kick in. Run back up the stairs that are
    going to Dagger's room, but this time go down the stairs to the right. Then take
    a right and try to talk to the guard. He is asleep, and Zidane will wake him up.
    Then he will make up a story about someone being in the guestroom. Finally,
    Zidane will beat him up and take his armor.
    
    Now it is time to get on the lift. Once you are in it, Zidane will automatically
    go to the upper level. Then, take a left before the big archway and go up the
    stairs. Go around the engine and up circular stairs. You will now be at the top
    of the castle. Go up the steps to the south and you will see another beautiful
    FMV. Then the two will talk a little and Zidane runs over to the telescope. Look
    at the Ceebell River, Chocobo Forest, South Gate, Qu's Marsh, and the two Aerbs
    Mountains. Then Dagger will take a look.
    
    Dagger and Zidane then talk about everything that has happened so far. Dagger
    then realizes all the ruckus she caused. Then she says that she has not been
    getting good sleep and Zidane, being himself, will ask her if she "needs
    company." We then find out that Dagger does not know what her song is, she just
    sings it when she feels lonely. Then we go back to Steiner, who has seemed too
    given up on Dagger and is looking in an armorshop. Steiner seems to still be in
    denial about Brahne being bad. We then see most of the major characters
    struggling to find out things.
    
    Going back to Zidane, he seemed to have mixed up all the woman he has hit on in
    this game. Then Zidane says that if he wins the hunt tomorrow, they will go out
    on a date. Dagger hesitantly agrees and Zidane runs off. We then see all the
    vicious beasts that will be in the festival. Don't worry, however, if you are at
    level 8 or higher, and have The Ogre, most of the monsters won't even be able to
    touch you.
    
    Then the screen changes back to the guestroom, where we find out that Vivi,
    Freya, and Zidane will all be competing in the festival hunt! Vivi is because
    Zidane "persuaded" him to. Then we find out that they all will start off at
    different districts. We find out that if Zidane wins he will get Gil, if Vivi
    wins he will get a card and if Freya wins she will get a add on. Zidane will get
    5,000 Gil, Freya will get a Coral Ring, and Vivi will get some rare card (Hey, I
    would never let him win!). Obviously the Coral Ring is the best item, Gil is the
    middle, and the card is the worst. You will, however, be able to control the
    outcome of who wins!
    
    Save at the moogle, just in case you don't get what you wanted. Go to the air
    cab, and it will automatically take you the Theater District. Then we see Dagger
    and Steiner watching the competition. Zidane then gets out of the air cab, and
    the time starts ticking. Go outside and you will see that a Mu is attacking a
    man. Kill it then continue. You are going to want to kill every animal in this
    district, so look in every nook and cranny. It's only optional, though.
    
    Why is it optional, you might ask? Because when there is less then 4 minutes
    left on the clock, a Zaghnol will attack Baku's niece and nephew in the Business
    District. The beast will be in the Fountain circle, where the Synthesis,
    Equipment shop, and Item shop are. Remember, though, that you have 8 minutes to
    kill before you can fight it. So, if you want, you can go on a killing spree in
    the other districts. Just remember to go to the Zaghnol when they're around 4
    minutes left. He is worth a towering 200 points, so even if you haven't killed
    any monsters, you will still win.
    
    Now you might be asking "So how do I get <insert name here> to win?" Well, when
    you start to fight the Zaghnol Freya will jump in and attack with you. You will
    then have control of both her and Zidane. The Zaghnol has around 1,500 HP. Use
    this number to your advantage. Have both Freya and Zidane attack. When he gets
    low on HP, if you want Freya to win have Zidane steal while Freya attacks. If
    you want Zidane to win have Freya defend and Zidane attack. If you want Vivi to
    win then have Freya kill Zidane, and have Freya defend while the Zaghnol attacks
    her.
    
    Again, I HIGHLY ADVISE that you have Freya win, unless you are really low on Gil
    or are obsessed with the card game (I hope not). Get there with around 5 minutes
    left so you have a little extra time to get to the Zaghnol. I highly advise that
    you have Zidane steal even if you want him to win, the Zaghnol has both a
    Mythril Glove and a Needle Fork. Both of these items are very good to have
    equipped at this point in the game, and can sell for something. Remember to
    STEAL both items, even if you take some abuse and have to use up some potions,
    it will be well worth it.
    
    You will then get rewarded with the appropriate item to whoever won, and a Hunt
    Master title. Afterwards, however, something very unexpected happens. A
    Burmecian soldier will come and ask for reinforcements, it seems that a group of
    Black Mages is terrorizing Burmecia! The Regent and Minister will talk a bit
    about the situation, and they finally decide that there are no troops to bring
    over, they are all scattered about the region looking over Brahne! Freya, Vivi,
    and Zidane decide to go as reinforcements. Dagger is told that she cannot go.
    
    They all decide to have a feast before they go, for some strange reason. Another
    weird part is why the Regent doesn't give them a ship. It would take them ten
    seconds to get to Burmecia in an air ship! Anyway, in the feast Dagger uses
    Zidane's sleeping weed to knock everyone out besides her and Steiner. Steiner
    feels... how can I say, left out that he wasn't poisoned? Anyway, they both
    leave for somewhere that we do not know.
    
    The rest of the party wakes up, and you are told to go to Gizamaluke's Grotto.
    Then the three of you, Zidane, Vivi, and Freya will team up. Equip them with all
    the new items you bought and stole. Then, if you have anything else you want to
    do in Lindblum, like get some more equipment or play the card game, do it now.
    Also buy one more set of equipment that Vivi wears. This will be a Silk Shirt
    (or Cotton Robe), Steepled Hat, and Glass Armlet. When you are ready to go, take
    the castle lift to the base level. Be wary that you will not be able to come
    back for a while once you leave. So, get everything you want to done before you
    leave.
    
    When you reach the base level, take the west trolley to Dragon's Gate. Read
    Stiltzkin's letter and save your game at the moogle. Buy items (medical) at the
    other man in this room if you ever need to. Then walk through the northern
    archway to the world map.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    You can do a total of two things at this present time. You can go to Chocobo's
    forest and dig up some Chocograph's if you like. It's completely optional, and I
    don't expect you to do it, but you can get some good items from the
    Chocograph's. See the Side Quest section for more detail on how to play Chocobo
    Hot and Cold.
    
    Qu's Marsh
    ----------
    
    After you have optionally done that, run north from Dragon's Gate and you will
    see a flat forest. This is Qu's Marsh! Go inside, and you should remember this
    place from the ATE of Mogster. Follow the planks to the next area and you will
    see Mogster there. Talk to him if you are having any trouble figuring out stuff
    still. Then, go in the opening in the grass right behind him. Go up and through
    the grass and you will be at a small pond with a weird looking... thing
    wandering around the pond trying to get frogs. Catch a frog and talk to s/he.
    
    You will come to naming s/he. The default name is "Quina." Quina will ask for
    the frog Zidane has. Zidane will give it to s/he and then Quale will come out
    and yell at Quina for taking the frog. Then we will go inside Quale's house.
    They will talk a little about their being more to life (or food) then frogs.
    Agree to take Quina with you. On the way out Vivi will say that Quale looks
    exactly like his grandpa. He then runs in and talks to Quale about this. Quale
    says that he vaguely knows him, but does not want to talk about him (Or at least
    that it was I pieced together).
    
    Anyway, now you have four party members! Equip Quina the extra set that you
    bought for him while in Lindblum. Give him the Needle Fork you stole, also.
    Then, I highly suggest that you catch all the frogs in the pond, leaving only
    one male and one female. This will give them time to reproduce, so when you
    finally go back to Lindblum you will be able to go frog catching again. When you
    are ready, leave Qu's Marsh.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Now that you are on the world map, it is time to level up! You should have all
    the optional stuff done by now (if you decided to do it). I recommend that all
    party members be at level 10 before we go inside the Grotto. This means that
    when you fight the boss you should all be at level 11. At any rate, level
    everyone up on the world map. By potions if needed in Dragon Gates shop. Have
    Freya equip an Iron Helm and have the Level Up ability on.
    
    While you are leveling up, their is a creature called the hedgehog pie. I want
    you to lower its health and then have Quina eat it. This will give you pretty
    powerful blue magic, Pumpkin Head. This attack will do Quina's maximum number of
    HP minus the HP s/he has currently. So if you have 100/450 HP it will do 350
    damage in that turn. It's very useful for some of the bosses coming up! When you
    are at level 10, and have Pumpkin Head, you will find Gizamaluke's Grotto if you
    follow the roots on the ground that start at Qu's Marsh.

                                 3.7  -  Gizamaluke's Grotto
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Enemies:
    --------
    Hornet (300 HP)
    Skeleton (400 HP)
    Lamia (1000 HP)
    Black Mage Type A (400 HP)
    Gizamaluke (Boss)
    
    Upon entering, Freya will see two dead Burmecian soldiers. Then she will think
    that the king is in danger, and everyone will run inside. If you go north, you
    will find yourself at a wall that won't even budge. Go east and talk to a
    soldier. He will give you a bell and tell you to go to Burmecia. Run over to the
    door and ring the bell. The door will open and the bell will shatter. Go inside.
    
    At this time I would like to talk about the enemies. The Skeletons and Hornets
    are pretty easy to defeat. The skeletons usually come in ones, so they are
    really easy to defeat. They do around 80 damage. The Hornets come in threes, so
    they are harder. There is one enemy that I would like to discuss. That is the
    Lamia. This... pink worm is deadly. It does around 100 damage with slash, can
    cure itself 180 HP, and can confuse a character into attacking an ally. These
    are pretty hard to defeat, but if you are awake during the battle, and use
    magic, they shouldn't be very hard. You only get to kill a handful of Black Mage
    Type A's here, as they are not random spawns. They aren't very tough because
    they only do around 100 damage per spell and are slow.
    
    You will see two Black Mages obliterate a soldier, then Zorn and Thorn will
    arrive and tell the 'Mages to attack you. They are fairly easy to defeat. Use
    magic, because you can just use a tent later in this place. Zorn and Thorn will
    then run off. Follow the path, and kill the two Black Mages in the center of the
    room. You will get a bell for defeating them. Run up the stairs to the north and
    use the bell on the middle door. Yet again the door will open and the bell will
    break.
    
    You will see a moogle in trouble. It seems that two imposters in clown costumes
    have put a huge bell over the moogles husband! Who would have ever done that!?
    Anyway, the moogle ends up asking for Vivi's Kupo Nut. Give it to her, and she
    will tell her husband that she has a Kupo Nut waiting for him. He suddenly gets
    a major boost in strength and pushes the bell over. Then the two run to the next
    room.
    
    Get the bell where the moogle was trapped, and then go to the southeastern part
    of the circular room and you will see steps going down somewhere. Go down and
    check the outer path to find a Magus Hat and Mythril Gloves. Equip the Magus Hat
    on Vivi and the Mythril Gloves on Freya. Then go all the way back around to the
    big bell, and open the door to your right with another bell.
    
    You will be inside to where the two moogles went. DO NOT GO UP THE VINES UNLESS
    YOU WANT TO DIE. There are Blue Dragon's and Garuda's out there, the first being
    impossible to defeat at your current level and the other being a hard boss.
    Anyway, talk to the wife and say that you like Kupo Nuts. She says she likes
    you. Then talk to the husband, Mogmi, about Mognet. Save your game, and use a
    tent. Then as you are walking back to the big bell room, the wife will turn a
    statue and give you another bell. She will say that she is "Kupo for Kupo Nuts"
    and will ask you to give her any if/when you get some. All right.
    
    Walk back around the bell and open the door on the left with the bell. Make sure
    everyone is in tiptop shape before the battle, this is going to be a tough one.
    You will walk inside and see another wounded Burmecian soldier. He will tell us
    that someone has made Gizamaluke go mad. Then the fish will jump into the water
    and attack you.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Gizamaluke
    HP: 3,200
    Steal: Ice Staff, Magus Hat, Elixir
    Party: Zidane (11), Vivi (11), Freya (11), Quina (11)
    Difficulty: Hard
    
    This is the hardest boss fight on disc one! Gizamaluke has three deadly attacks.
    Crash, which does around 100 damage to one character. Water, which will hit
    Freya and Zidane in the area of 100 damage. It will hit Vivi and Quina for
    around 200 damage! When he gets low on HP he will use water on the whole party
    for the same damage! Like I said, he's tough. He also has Silent Voice, which
    will make a character unable to use magic! Okay, now onto the fight. I really
    hope that you did what I said and got The Ogre, or this is going to be a lot
    tougher. If you did, which you should have done, have Zidane use Soul Blade on
    the beast and he will be blind him. Now when he uses crash he will miss a
    majority of the time! Now that we got one attack out of the way, let's get the
    others. Have Vivi use Slow on Gizamaluke. If it doesn't stick the first time, do
    it a couple times and it will. Now he attacks a lot slower! Okay, now onto
    Freya. Freya should use Lancer on Gizamaluke until she runs out of MP, or until
    he silences her. At which case, you will want to her to jump. Lastly, we have a
    small role for Quina. If you stole the Needle Fork, then it has a chance to do a
    lot of damage (around 600). Physically attack with Quina, and when Quina's HP
    gets low have s/he use Pumpkin Head for a couple hundred damage! Vivi should use
    Thunder on Gizamaluke until he silences him. This should happen after he first
    time he does it. Then his role will be to heal everyone with potions. Back to
    Zidane, after he casts Soul Blade on Gizamaluke he can either steal the Ice
    Staff (which you will get a little further), an Elixir (which are valuable), or
    he can attack him. Now we have to talk about the damage YOU will do to
    Gizamaluke. He will be blinded and slow, so he will go a lot slower in his
    attacks and he will use crash (stupidly) occasionally and miss. You will do
    around 275 damage with Freya's Lancer every turn and the same amount of damage
    with her Jump every other turn. Zidane will do around 400, but he might not even
    get a chance if he is stealing. Quina is pretty random; her needle fork will do
    anywhere from 120 to 600 damage. Vivi will only do 120 damage on Gizamaluke with
    Thunder before he gets silenced, but we will need him to heal anyway. Overall,
    this is one tough boss fight!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the battle Freya will wonder how Gizamaluke came to become crazy. She will
    then worry about Burmecia's king and the screen will fade.
    
    South Gate
    ----------
    
    It seems that Dagger and Steiner decided to go to South Gate. This is good news,
    because they didn't get killed at Gizamaluke's Grotto. The two guards will stop
    Steiner, and inspect his bag. Steiner gets worried, but they buy that the bag is
    full of gysahl pickles (at first, they think it is poison) and Steiner is
    allowed inside.
    
    Once you are inside, Steiner will say that they need to lure the people away
    from that alley so Dagger can get out of the bag. Walk over to the woman in a
    green dress. Console her just for fun. She will still end up walking away. Now
    it is time for the man. Before you talk to him, go west to a gate that a man is
    working on. Talk to him and you will find out that all he does is polish the
    hinges on the gate. Select "Kill!" for another comical scene, but Steiner won't
    actually kill anyone. (Besides Zidane.) Go over and talk to the man now. He
    happens to be the Engineer Chef, and Steiner will tell him that the man at the
    gate isn't doing anything to fix it. The chef will run over to him.
    
    Now that the coast is clear, go over to the alley. A guard will tell you to hold
    up, but all he wants to do is give you a Gate Pass. Run back over to the alley
    and Steiner will guard the alley as Dagger dresses. You can choose to "Look at
    the other side" and Steiner will almost peek at Dagger. If you think that this
    is the last perverted thing in this game then you are gravely mistaken. This is
    only the beginning. =)
    
    Dagger will talk to Steiner about going to Treno. Then we are at the Summit
    Station. Get the chest for a potion, then save at the moogle. Do a favor for
    him, also, and agree to deliver a letter. Afterwards, stock up on supplies if
    you need any. Equip items that you might have bought at Lindblum. If you bought
    a cotton robe, then equip Dagger with the Chemist ability. Then run up the
    stairs and talk to the conductor. You will board and the two of you will talk a
    little bit. Then you will be off.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    After Freya talks to the wounded Burmecian soldier, you will be on the world
    map. Now, if you have been playing Chocobo Hot and Cold avidly you might have
    gotten the Healing Shore Chocograph. If you think you did, then go to the far
    west of here, past the sandstorm, and to the Chocobo tracks. Call Choco and see
    if you have it. If you do, look at the Side Quests section to find out where to
    look for it (it is around here).
    
    Afterwards, if you like Chocobo Hot and Cold or by happen to chance have the
    Small Beach Chocograph, backtrack all the way back to Chocobo Forest (go through
    the Grotto) and find that treasure! You can get an Oak Staff from it, a valuable
    treasure for Vivi at this time. Please note that this is only optional, and if
    you want to be a little ahead in the game and like Chocobo Hot and Cold, then I
    highly suggest you do this. Then, whenever I say have Vivi do <insert spell
    here>, have him cast Bio for more damage!
    
    Okay, now, back to the guide. If you press select until you cycle to the big
    map, and then look a little above where you are, you will see Burmecia north.
    Walk north from the Grotto to it. It should start to rain about halfway through.
    Don't worry. Enter the town of Burmecia.

    Freya will talk a little bit about herself, then everyone will run inside
    Burmecia. From here, walk about halfway up this area and you should see a fallen
    cart. Check behind and get the Cancer Stellazio. Then, run up to the next
    screen. Walk north more and Zorn and Thorn will come out on two balconies. After
    a little bit of dialogue, they will sick two Black Mages on you. These are only
    the Type A's you fought earlier, so they should be easy to defeat. Zorn and
    Thorn will run inside and talk a little about the "General." Then you have
    control of Zidane again.
    
    Okay, let us talk about the enemies around here. Magic Vices normally steal from
    you, but you usually get the item back as a spoil. They usually run away right
    after they steal, though, so try to kill them as fast as possible. Black Mage
    Type A's shouldn't be something new for you. They cast any of the three normal
    spells, and usually go down in one hit by Zidane. Mimics call Magic Vices, so
    they are no big deal. Basilisks also go down in one hit. The only tough enemy
    here is the Ironite. He holds court here just as the Lamia did of the last area.
    He can go down in a couple attacks, but I want you to keep facing them until you
    can get Quina to eat one. You will learn Angel's Snack, which is very valuable
    blue magic.
    
    Anyway, back at the house. Go left to a door inside. Pick up the potion by the
    statue and the soft opposite of it. You can't do much of anything else in this
    room, as when you go up the stairs you will find out that the floor fell. So go
    all the way back outside and take the right door this time. It should all the
    way around and up the stairs. Tedious, I know. Once inside, go passed the stairs
    and over to the wooden drawer. Open the chest next to it to receive another
    soft. Now go up the stairs and to the door to the right. Do not open the going
    down the platform, unless you want to fight a Mimic.
    
    Once you go through the door, you will find yourself in an outer area. If you go
    up to the door that looks similar to the doors in Gizamaluke's Grotto, you will
    find out that you can't open (Big surprise). Now, walk to the west and you will
    go to another room. Walk SLOWLY across the plank and grab the treasure for the
    Germinas Boots. If you are using an analog stick, use the D pad for this. The D
    pad will go slow enough. Once you collect the treasure, run back over the plank
    and it will fall. You will jump over to the other side, and the plank will make
    a passage for a room.
    
    You remember that room to the right, right? Well, if you don't, go all the way
    back over and around and down to the balconies (where Zorn and Thorn chatted
    with you), then go to the door to the right. You will find out that you have a
    plank to cross that you didn't have before. Go over and to the next room. Do not
    open the chest over there unless you want to fight a Mimic. Now that you are in
    the next room, follow the room to the balcony. Choose to go outside the balcony
    and you will jump over to the other side.
    
    Now, talk to the Burmecian soldier by the bed. He will tell you to look under
    the bed for a bell. Looks like Burmecia made the Grotto, or how else would there
    be bells here, too? Anyway, go around the bed and over to the side that you
    can't see in view. Choose to look under the bed and you will find the Protection
    Bell. Get the ether to the left of here. Now, it is time to backtrack all the
    way back to the outer room with the door that "wouldn't budge." I know you might
    hate this backtracking... but don't kill me, I'm just the messenger.
    
    Once you finally get all the way back, ring the bell and you should know what
    happens next! Go inside and the party will walk up the stairs. They will talk a
    little and decide to go further. Then you will see Dan, another Burmecian
    soldier, run down the stairs. You should be used to everyone blaming Vivi by
    now. Dan will run off, more scared then a rat that got caught in a mousetrap.
    
    The gang will talk a little more, and decide again that they want to go further.
    Run all the way up the stairs. Then, go through the open doorway in the middle.
    You will see two Burmecian's struggling to leave. Zidane will enter and tell
    them that it will be safe in Lindblum. Then, right before a statue type
    structure collapses, Zidane will pull the husband out of the way. If only he was
    doing all this heroic crap in front of Dagger...
    
    Anyway, they will thank him and another Burmecian will run over. He will gladly
    help the two of them get out of here. Then we will automatically go back to the
    last screen. Go up the stairs to the east (the stairs that are still intact) and
    instead of taking the first door, go over the middle and take the other. Collect
    the Tent and Phoenix Down, then take the path to the middle and go through the
    door. You might have noticed a chest on the other side of that area. Do not open
    it because it has another Mimic in it.
    
    Now you will be outside again. In this area there will be two doors and a path
    in the middle. Go inside the left door and Freya will take the Mythril Spear.
    Equip this spear, it is a little stronger then the Javelin that you have
    equipped, but it has Reis' Wind (It should be Reis' Wind) that will cast Regen
    on the whole party. In short, it's good!
    
    Go back outside and take the door to the right now. You will see a moogle.
    Before you buy stuff goes to the end of the room and opens the chest to receive
    a Lightning Staff. Then Stiltzkin will come in. Buy the Ether, Hi-Potion, and
    Soft from him for 333 Gil. Then talk to Alta. Give him the letter, and he will
    give you a Kupo Nut. Buy new equipment from Alta if you have the money, then
    save your game. Then equip your new items. Finally, go back outside.
    
    Keep fighting enemies until you fight an Ironite. These dragons are just like
    the Lamia's of the Grotto, they have 900 HP and have an attack that will do 150
    damage to the whole party! They are tough. You want to get its HP down to 1/8,
    and then have Quina eat it. You will learn Angel's Snack! This is very valuable
    blue magic that will cast Remedy on the whole party! Angel's Snack is the only
    blue magic in this area worth getting. Also level everyone to at least 12. Now
    that you have Angel's Snack and have everyone at level 12, go back inside to
    Alta, the moogle, and use a tent. Then save your game and go north to the middle
    path!
    
    Freya will fall to her knees, it seems that the Royal Palace is in ruins! You
    have three choices, to talk to her, leave her alone, or wonder if Dagger came
    here. You can choose the Dagger option just for fun, and afterwards do the leave
    her alone option. This will advance everything. Freya will then leap up all the
    way to the palace, and tell everyone that she thinks someone is inside the
    palace. Zidane will follow her up, but Vivi and Quina will have to find another
    way in. Of course, Quina wants to see if there is any food inside the palace
    before s/he goes up, anyway.
    
    Zidane and Freya will then go inside and hide behind statues. They will see
    Queen Brahne and Beatrix. This will trigger a flashback of her lover talking
    about how Beatrix is the best swordsman in the land. Then you will see why Sir
    Fratley wanted to go out into the world and leave Freya. Then, a person in white
    will come over. We will find out that he is a "Mysterious Man." Then Brahne and
    him will converse. We will find out that he is Kuja and that the king has gone
    to Cleyra, a town in a tree that is protected by a sandstorm. You might have
    seen this if you went over to find the Chocobo tracks. Anyway, Kuja will promise
    the hag that he will show is power.
    
    Then we will go back to Zidane and Freya, who doesn't know who the cross dresser
    is. They will talk a little bit about Cleyra, then a Burmecian soldier will run
    up to Beatrix. He doesn't know who she is, and when she tells him he is shocked.
    Then Zidane and Freya jump down and distract Beatrix long enough for the soldier
    to escape to Cleyra. Then Vivi and Quina will show up and Beatrix will say that
    she has never been so humiliated in her life. Well, I would have to agree with
    her. She's going to fight a kid with a tail, a rat, a probably defunct black
    mage, and a fat thing with its tongue sticking out. I would hope she would be
    humiliated!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Beatrix
    HP: 3,000
    Steal: Mythril Sword, Chain Plate, Phoenix Down
    Party: Zidane (12), Vivi (12), Freya (12), Quina (12)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    We finally get to fight the best swordsman in the land! Yay! Beatrix is a lot
    easier then this, however. She's actually pretty easy. She uses four attacks in
    this fight. Shock, which will do around 750 damage to one character. This attack
    will kill any character in your party unless you are at a high level. Thunder
    Slash, which is magic and does about damage. Her regular attack, which does the
    same as Thunder Slash. And last, but definitely not least, Stock Break. She will
    only use this at the end of the fight, and everyone's HP will go to 1. It's sort
    of ironic, though, how everyone's HP will go to 1 but in actuality Quina can use
    Limit Glove for 9999 damage. Weird. Anyway, this battle is pretty tough if you
    let it be. Sometimes Beatrix abuses Shock and overuses it. I had to use around
    four phoenix downs in this fight because she would keep using it! Since she
    doesn't really have anything good to steal, I don't advise it. You should have
    Zidane attack all the way. He should take off around 400 HP every hit. Vivi's
    job is to cast Slow on Beatrix. This will make her attack a lot less often, and
    it usually sticks on the first try. Then have him cast Thundara until the cows
    come home. It should do around 500 damage every time! Freya should be using
    Lancer until she runs out of MP, and then Jump. This should do around 300
    damage. She also should take the role as a healer if Beatrix tries to abuse
    Shock. Lastly, Quina should be a full time healer. S/he should be throwing
    Phoenix Downs, Potions, Hi-Potions, whatever. Throw in some attacks and Pumpkin
    Head if Quina's HP gets low. This fight really shouldn't last that long unless
    Beatrix keeps taking out Zidane and Vivi and you have to throw Phoenix Downs a
    lot. You do not have to take off all of Beatrix's HP, all you have to do is last
    around 7-10 turns. She will use Stock Break after that, and bring everyone's HP
    to 1.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, Beatrix will talk some more about her being strong and you
    being weak. Then Brahne tells her to come, like a pet. After that, Kuja walks
    over to the party and says that "this boy could be a problem." We think that he
    is talking about Zidane, but we don't know. I love foreshadowing! Then we will
    see a FMV of the party on the ground and Kuja looking at them. Then he will
    leave on his white dragon and disc one will end.

    We will start off disc two by two guards (the ones at South Gate) talking about
    the war. Then we will go back to Dagger and Steiner. They will talk a little bit
    and we will be at Summit Station. They will talk a little bit about being back
    in Alexandria, then you will have control of Dagger. Go east and inside the rest
    area. Steiner will decide to "gather information" and you will have control of
    Dagger again. First, talk to the moogle and give Nanza the letter from Grimo.
    Then, save you're game and talk to the attendant at the western part of the
    room. He will be behind a desk.
    
    He will tell you that a car will arrive shortly. Then we will hear a "familiar
    voice." Before you go out to see who it is, buy new equipment from the store
    next to the moogle. I advise that you get a Mythril Rod for Dagger. Equip it,
    then walk outside. We will see Marcus and Cinna talking about how they missed
    their ride, then Cinna will decide to eat another Bundt Cake. The two of them
    will go inside. Walk back in the rest area yourself.
    
    You will find Steiner yelling at Marcus and Cinna. They will make some funny
    comments about Steiner, and then it is your turn to preserve the peace. Talk to
    Cinna and Marcus. They start to talk about the Evil Forest but Steiner will cut
    them off. Dagger will then have a little talk with Steiner about cutting his
    vocal cords or at least his tongue (I wish). Then the car for Alexandria
    arrives, and Cinna wants to see Marcus off. Run outside and go inside the car.
    
    Dagger and Marcus will then get to converse about why he is going to Treno. It
    seems that he needs an item that will cure Blank, but not the whole Evil Forest,
    and there is one of those in Treno! See, I told you that the ATEs that you have
    to see have to do with storyline. They will then talk a little more and Marcus
    will say he doesn't want to talk to her. Try to talk to him again and Dagger
    will offer to help save Blank. Then the car will stop and a demon will be
    outside! That could only mean one thing!
    
    Black Waltz #3 is back from the dead! It seems that he survived his crash and
    has malfunctioned! Then they will fight.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Black Waltz #3 II
    HP: 1,250
    Steal: Flame Staff, Lightning Staff, Steepled Hat
    Party: Dagger (7), Steiner (7), Marcus (7)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Hey hey... don't blame me. I didn't know that this demon was going to survive
    the explosion and magically end up here! Anyway, this fight is really easy. The
    Black Waltz is persistent, but this time you cannot lose. Trust me, I tried. The
    first time I fought him I had Marcus kill Steiner and then had Dagger beat up on
    Marcus. Then, when Dagger is left, the Black Waltz will crack his back every
    turn for 250 damage on him. Basically, you cannot lose. I then booted up the
    last save and tried this fight over. This time I actually fought. Steiner and
    Marcus should physically attack. Since Vivi's not in the party, Steiner can't do
    Fire Sword. Marcus is a lot worse of a stealer then Zidane, so don't have him
    steal. You can get those items at Treno, anyway. Have Dagger heal with Cure and
    this fight should be easy. The Black Waltz has the same attacks as the time
    before, but he also has Freeze. This will stop a character. Pathetically, most
    of the time he uses Fire on the character afterwards and unfreezes them. His
    attacks do little damage, and with Dagger healing, you shouldn't have a problem.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the battle Marcus will talk about Burmecia being wiped out. They will talk
    a little more and then they will go back in the train. They will talk, and
    Marcus will be stuck with Dagger's decision to go with them. You will now be at
    another station again. Go north to the next area. You will now be at a fork.
    
    If you bought 99 Steepled Hats like I optionally told you to do in Lindblum,
    then go left at the fork. This will take you to Dali. Talk to the Gate Guard
    twice and he will open the gate. Then you will be on the World Map. Since this
    is optional, I'll just continue. Walk over to Dali. You will notice that you
    will behind the Ice Cavern. Things may look weird but Dali is over there. Once
    you get there, go inside the shop to the left. Buy 99 wrists, you should have
    the money because you already got 60,000 Gil from the last time you did this.
    Then, go back to the fork at the Summit.
    
    Okay, just skip the above paragraph if you decided not to get 99 Steepled Hats.
    At the fork, go right. Jump over the broken part of the bridge, and go south
    down the steps and open the chest. You will get 1,610 Gil. Now, follow the path
    to the gate. Try to go through but the guard will stop you. You will show your
    Gate Pass, and he will lower the gate for you. Now you will be on the world map.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Now that you are back on the world map again, you can do a couple things. You
    can go to Treno, Quan's Dwelling, or give an ore to a friendly ghost. Save
    Quan's Dwelling for a little later, and we can leave Treno on hold for a bit.
    What you want to do now is walk around Treno (it's north of the gate) until you
    encounter the friendly ghost. Give him an ore, and he will give you 10 AP. Now
    you can go to Treno. =)

    When you enter Dark City Treno, Steiner and Marcus will start arguing with each
    other about stealing the Supersoft. Dagger runs off while they are yelling at
    each other. Then Steiner talks to himself, and Marcus sneaks away from him. Then
    you have control of Steiner. Watch the Treno Tradition ATE now. It will show
    Alleyway Jack trying to steal from Dagger. Right before he is about to the field
    icon will pop up. Press X and he will only steal 500 Gil, instead of 1,000 Gil.
    Losing the Gil will be more then worth it in the end.
    
    Now you have control of Steiner. You might see a fountain in this area. Go up to
    it and the choices icon will appear. Have Steiner throw 10 Gil into the fountain
    13 times, for a total of 130 Gil. The Gemini Stellazio will then appear. Now go
    to the left where Dagger snuck off. You will be on the same bridge where Dagger
    was. About halfway through, you will see stairs going down. Take them and you
    will be at another area. Go inside the house at the northwest, it will be a
    small mansion. When you start to walk around inside you will bump into the guy
    that stole the money from Dagger. Talk to him, and he will trip over his words.
    He will then give you a Power Belt, which he just got with the money at the
    Synthesis shop.
    
    After this, have Steiner run around the area to get acquainted with it. You will
    see a series of ATEs. One being called "Unexpected Visitor." You will see Dagger
    go inside the auction house, and Kuja looking at her from a floor above. After
    you have an overdose of ATEs, go back to the entrance. Go right, where Marcus
    went, this time. Walk around halfway down the path, then go down the stairs. Buy
    items at the shop if you want, but otherwise look behind the shop for the Taurus
    Stellazio. It should be on the ground northeast of the shop.
    
    Now that you have four Stellazio's, it's time to exchange them! Go back to the
    entrance, then go left. Go about halfway down the path and go down the stairs
    north. Then follow the path north until you reach the next area. Go inside the
    house, and you will be inside a very weird room with cages. Give her four
    Stellazio's for 3,000 Gil, a Phoenix Pinion, and, most importantly, a Blood
    Sword! Equip this sword on Steiner immediately!
    
    Now go back to the entrance again, and go to the left. Follow the road to the
    next screen. Don't mind the homeless, and go down the stairs and follow the
    moogle. Save at him, then go inside the shop to the east. Be sure to get all the
    best equipment. Go to the auction house, which is in the area following the
    equipment shop. You will meet Dagger there. Talk to her, and you will have
    control of Dagger and Steiner again.
    
    Optional
    --------
    
    This little part is optional to if you did the cotton robe trick throughout the
    beginning of the game. You can still read it to find out what item(s) you can
    buy.
    
    Now, you can do the cotton robe trick again! Go back to where you talked to the
    thief that gave you the power belt. Follow the floor to a Synthesis shop. Make
    as many cotton robes as you can, then run back to the equipment shop. Sell them,
    then rinse and repeat until your stock of 99 wrists and Steepled Hats has
    expired. Now you should have at least 130,000 Gil. You are really racking it in!
    
    Go back to the Auction House and buy:
    
    Four Fairy Earrings (6,000 Gil each)
    Three Magician Robes (7,000 Gil each)
    Two Madain's Rings (7,500 Gil each)
    
    This will give you Level Up, Auto-Potion, and Chemist. The prices are not exact,
    you can pay a little more or a little less. These items are "acclaimed," so you
    should be able to bid on them most of the time you enter the auction house. If
    you don't get what you want, then re-enter the auction house until you do. It
    should cost around 60,000 Gil to get all the auction items. Do this only if you
    did the cotton robe trick, or have a lot of money.
    
       Level Up  -  1.5 times normal experience in battle. (Fairy Earrings)
                    (Everyone can equip this as a add on.)
    Auto-Potion  -  Automatically heals you when hit. (Magician Robes)
                    (Dagger, Vivi, and Quina can equip these and use the Auto-
                     Potion ability. You can get the other 3 characters with GOLD
                     CHOKERS, these give them Auto-Potion as well!)
        Chemist  -  Doubles potency of Medical Items. (Madain's Rings)
                    (Only Steiner and Freya can use this skill with Madain's
                     Ring. You can give Dagger a cotton robe to give her this
                     skill also.)
    
    What this stuff will do is make leveling up a lot easier, and make big boss
    battles a little easier. I am writing the guide WITHOUT doing it. So, if you
    did, then you won't need to have a character "throw a potion to someone" in a
    big boss fight because it will automatically do so.
    
    Treno
    -----
    
    Okay, back to Dagger and Steiner. Go back to the area where the item shop is.
    Instead of going down the ladder, go to the inn on the opposite side. Rest at
    the inn if you need too. Then, walk down the stairs and meet up with Marcus. Say
    that you are ready and you will go to the dock. Walk down the stairs and ladder.
    Oh, and ignore Steiner. Talk to Baku once you reach the docks, and everyone
    seems to hate Steiner.
    
    You will come back to Kuja at the Auction House. He will be talking to the
    Auctioneer about leaving for Cleyra, and tell him to get something "ready." Then
    they will talk about Dagger. You might not understand his dialogue; but you are
    not meant to. You finally get the summary. "I, too, will welcome you with open
    arms."
    
    Now we will come back to Dagger on the boat. Steiner will have some deep
    thoughts about everything that has happened thus far. Then Dagger will do the
    same. They will start to look for the Supersoft in the Synthesis shop when
    someone comes downstairs! They hide, but Dagger jumps out only to meet one of
    her teachers. He will say that he will give them the Supersoft tomorrow. His
    house is the tower at the end of the pier. He will leave the door open. Then the
    gang will run off.
    
    Back at the inn, Baku seems to summarize things up for everyone. He then
    proceeds to use every other name besides Tot he can think of. Then he asks for
    you to get some rest. When you awake, go outside the inn and back to the
    entrance. Then take the left path. You might remember this place as it was where
    Dagger got mugged. Go all the way down the path and follow the open gate inside
    the tower. Run up the stairs and meet Doctor Tot.
    
    Everyone will then meet up and talk for a little bit. Marcus will get straight
    to business and take the Supersoft. If you continue to talk with Tot you will
    learn about this world being called Gaia. We will then have a small flashback of
    Dagger talking to Tot. Try to read the dialogue and not mash through it, it is
    pretty important for what is going to happen. Then young Princess Garnet will
    talk to Tot. He will teach Garnet some basic things about the world.
    
    Doctor Tot and Dagger get deep in thought, and Dagger tells Tot about what her
    mother, Queen Brahne, has done. Tot will then open a hatch and say that he has
    some transportation that will bring you to Alexandria. Before you go down the
    ladder, make sure you have done everything you have wanted to do in Treno; you
    will not be back for a little while. When you are ready, go down the ladder.

    Enemies:
    --------
    Dragonfly (350 HP)
    Crawler (600 HP)
    Ralvurahva (Boss)
    
    Everyone will go down the ladder and Doctor Tot will tell them about this place.
    Then you will be asked (By Steiner) to find a trigger. Before we continue, I
    would like to discuss the enemies of this area. Crawlers are worm-like creatures
    that only hit for around 100 damage. They are easy one hit kills for Steiner.
    They come in both singles and doubles. Dragonflies should be no problem at all
    for you, they are really easy to defeat.
    
    This is a great area for you to level up in. Crawlers give you 160 experience
    per, which will launch you up levels. You might want to kill Marcus and have
    Dagger and Steiner get the experience since Marcus isn't a permanent character.
    We will actually be leaving Marcus after this boss fight, and you would be able
    to manage with him at a lower level. So have Steiner take him out in a battle.
    Actually, you can have him himself! Isn't that funny? Steiner and Dagger will
    get more experience that way. You should be skyrocketing up levels now! Only do
    this until you reach level 14. It shouldn't take long, you will be getting
    anywhere between 250-500 experience per battle. Cure Marcus with Dagger's Life
    and Cure, then save at the moogle.
    
    Now that you are at the appropriate level, it is time to get out of here! At the
    fork where Doctor Tot is, take the left hall. Then, loot the treasure chest to
    the east to get a chain plate. Then go west and take the phoenix down in the
    chest by the lever. Choose to pull the lever, then go back to Doctor Tot. Take
    the right hall this time. Now, go north and follow the path. Tot will come over
    and tell you to pull the switch down. Do so and a Gargant will come over with a
    trolley. He will tell you that you must stop the Gargant now. Go down and if you
    speak to Tot he will ask "Where is that lever."
    
    Now it is time to find the lever. Go down from Doctor Tot and you will see a
    switch. Before you switch it, be sure to get all your equipment ready for a boss
    fight. If you did the cotton robe trick, then unequip the add on's to give to
    the other party (Zidane, Vivi, Freya, and Quina). Get your abilities set, then
    pull the lever. The Gargant will stop and start eating something. Now everyone
    will board and say their good-byes. Then Tot will pull a lever, and we will be
    off!
    
    But wait! The Gargant will stop! Dagger will see the problem and everyone will
    jump off. It's time to fight a killer snake!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Ralvurahva
    HP: 2500
    Steal: Mythril Fork, Bone Wrist
    Party: Dagger (14), Steiner (14), Marcus (10)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    This battle can be pretty tough if Ralvurahva makes it be. He usually is a
    pansy, though. He has a handful of attacks. The most deadly of these is Mini, it
    will turn a character into that status. This is far by the worst status in the
    game, it makes a character completely useless. They will do A LOT less damage.
    He only does this sometimes, though. He has an attack called String, which will
    put a character with the Slow ability. This isn't anywhere near as bad as Mini,
    but he uses String a lot. He also has an attack called Devil's Kiss, which will
    rarely inflict poison on you. And then he has what he attacks with the most;
    Blizzara. You will be happy when he casts this, it only does around 100 damage!
    You will want Steiner to attack, and he will heal himself with the Blood Sword.
    Marcus should stick to attacking, stealing is way too rare with him. Dagger
    should heal Marcus and herself if need be. Ralvurahva is guarded verse silence
    so don't even try it! You should be doing around 500 damage with Steiner and 300
    damage with Marcus. Dagger should only do around 50, but it will be her job to
    heal. Overall this battle gets a medium, it can be painful if he abuses Slow and
    Mini.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    You won't really defeat Ralvurahva, he will just escape. This means you get no
    experience or anything. I told you he was a pansy! The Gargant then finally
    arrives in Alexandria. The party chooses to continue. They will start to talk in
    the middle of one room. Then a gate opens up on one side and Steiner blames it
    on Marcus (obviously). The other side goes up, and they miss their chance to
    escape!
    
    But who could be behind it but of course Zorn and Thorn! They will come out, and
    Steiner obviously thinks they are not his enemy. The three of them are under
    arrest! Then Zorn and Thorn state what they were told to do, "Capture Princess
    Garnet."
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    The party will decide to go to Cleyra. Freya says that Cleyra lies to the west
    in the desert, of course in blue. Do they think that a four-year-old is playing
    this game, or what? We will now be back on the World Map. Go west and between
    the two mountains. Then you will see a huge sandstorm. That's where you want to
    go, Cleyra!

    They put this place in just to spite the hell out of everyone. This is
    definitely one of the worst areas in the game. It ties with Fossil Roo. Anyway,
    this guide may not be the _best_ out there, because this area gives me a
    terrible headache...
    
    After some short dialogue, we will see the beautiful Cleyra tree. Equip
    everything that you bought in Treno and set your abilities appropriately. The
    only piece of equipment that you might have trouble with is Vivi's staffs. You
    should keep your Blizzard Staff equipped, at least until you master Thundara.
    Now it is time. Run straight ahead to the next area and you will finally be at
    the outer area of the trunk. If you try to open the door with your hands, you
    will find out that it is tightly shut. Go up the stairs to the right and pull
    the lever. Then go inside.
    
    Now it's time to do the Gbness "Let's talk about the monsters paragraph." First
    off, you will fight Carrion Worms and Dragonflies throughout the trunk. They
    aren't really hard, and usually go down in one hit. Sand Golems, which you might
    find in the middle of the trunk, have a TON of HP and take a long time to kill.
    I highly suggest that you just run away from them, they are a nuisance. Zuu's,
    lastly, can be found at the end of the trunk. They are actually found everytime
    in one of the last areas (I'll tell you about it later). They don't do much
    damage, but they do sometimes eat one of your party members. You won't be able
    to fight with that party member for the rest of the fight, but s/he will be fine
    afterwards. They have very good Blue Magic, White Wind. This will cure all party
    members 200 damage. It is extremely useful in the first parts of the game, and I
    want you to keep fighting Zuu's until you get it.
    
    Now back to the show. Get the Phoenix Down in the chest to the right, then go
    north to the next area. Get the barely visible treasure chest to the south for
    Magician Shoes. Search the northern part of the area to find an Ice Staff. Then
    continue east to the following area. Go up the path given, and do not climb the
    vines at this time. Get the treasure chest in the next room for an ether. Put
    you hand in the hole at the southern part of the room to change the sand's flow.
    
    Now go back to the previous area and you will see that you can't go back down
    because of the sand. Climb the vines up to the hole. It should be right next to
    the sand flow. In this next area you will find Sand Golems in all your random
    battles. Hold R1 and L1 until you flee, or have Zidane use his Flee move. Get
    the chest to the left for a Needle Fork. Then proceed through the trunk to the
    next area.
    
    You will be in a room with a "sandfall" and a moogle. Go to the fork and go left
    towards him. Talk to Monev about Mognet and give him the letter from Alta. Then,
    save you're game and run back to the fork. Take the tent in the chest to the
    right, Then go up the northern path. Follow the path until you reach another
    fork. There will be a sign pointing one way towards Cleyra, and a dead end with
    a chest the other way. Open the chest for a Flame Staff, then take the other
    path left and up the stairs.
    
    Cross the bridge and go to the next screen. This next area is pretty big. You
    will have a lot of items you can get here. Go right and open the chest that's in
    plain view for a Remedy. Now go up and go behind the center tree. If you look at
    it closely, you can see an edge of a chest. Open it for a Desert Boots add on.
    Go northwest of that and up the slope inside a dead end trunk. If you go in deep
    enough you will find a Mythril Vest. Now, go back down and go north to the next
    area.
    
    Get the Mythril Gloves in the next chest, then follow the path you are on north.
    In the next area, you will see a lever and a rope. Pull the lever and to the
    left you will see a couple pieces of wood go over where sand was flowing,
    stopping it. Now go all the way back to the big area where you found the Remedy,
    Desert Boots, and Mythril Vest. Go down to the southern part of the area, then
    take the leftward path north. Get the chest ahead of you for a potion. Then walk
    up the jagged path to the right. You will find yourself at the screen where you
    pulled the lever, but in the upper part of it. Walk over and open the chest for
    an Elixir. Then backtrack south. Take the path to the left this time.
    
    You will find yourself in a whirlpool room.  You will most definitely get sucked
    into one of these. You will have to mash X as fast as you possible can to jump
    out. The sad part is that it is completely random which way you jump out, so you
    could be here for a little while trying to jump out the right way! What's even
    worse is that the exit to the next room is blockaded by a whirlpool, so you
    could find yourself here for a couple minutes trying to go out the correct way.
    To make matters worse, there are also two treasure chests in this room that you
    will want to get. One has 800 Gil and the other has a Hi-Potion. When you try to
    go to the chests and the exit, go slowly past the middle of the whirlpools. You
    will probably get sucked in the first couple of times. When you get sucked down
    the whole way you will fight two Sand Scorpions. These little buggers aren't
    that tough. Try to see how far up Zidane has to be before he jumps out. Mash X
    faster when he is in the position where he will jump out correctly. By luck, or
    by frustration, you will get to next area to the left.
    
    Follow the path to the next area. You will see a ladder and a chest. Take the
    chest, and now it is time to get Quina's White Wind! Remember the Zuu's I was
    telling you about? They have around 1200 HP, and if you eat them when they have
    taken more then 1050 damage, you will get White Wind! Keep trying until you get
    it. Then, take this opportunity to advance your character's level to at least
    15. Zuu's swallow party members, but besides that they are plausible enemies to
    get experience from. If you get tired of them, then go back to the previous
    area, which is a random spawn. When you are ready, go up the ladder and follow
    the stairs up to the Cleyra settlement.
    
    Freya will talk to one of the Oracles, and she will go see the king. The other
    Oracle will ask you if you want a tour of the town. The first time I played
    through this game I had the pleasure of taking this extraneous tour that was
    completely boring. I would highly advise that you say no, or you are in for a...
    yawn. Vivi decides to take the tour and Quina wants food, obviously. Just go up
    the stairs and take the right at the fork. Now it's ATE time!
    
    After the non-important Quina ATE, if you go up another flight of stairs you
    will see a familiar Burmecian soldier, Dan. He will be next to his wife. Dan's
    selling some pretty darn good equipment that will help you immensely. After
    buying all the equipment you need, walk around Cleyra and check out the sites.
    Most importantly, check out all the ATEs. Just go back and forth between areas
    to see the ATEs. It seems that every hates Vivi, and that Quina is about to eat
    a 'shroom.
    
    After you look at both of the ATEs, go back to the entrance to the Cleyra
    settlement. Once you reach where the two Oracles were, go right and you will see
    Quina. Walk up to her and converse, and s/he'll think that the whirlpool is ice
    cream and jump in! Zidane will go inside with s/he and we will fall back down a
    couple areas. Quina says something about exercise that should be
    incomprehensible to him, and then we will have control of the two of them.
    
    Open the two treasure chest in the area where you fell. There will be one in
    plain view, which will have a silk robe, and another oppositely south of it,
    which will have another pair of Magician Shoes. Now run left to the branch and
    jump down. Then go all the ways back up the Cleyra. I know, I know, easier said
    then done. Flee is your best friend. At least we don't have to bend over
    backwards to get treasure this time.
    
    Once you are back at the Settlement, go up the stairs and take the fork left
    again. Then go up the stairs and inside the inn behind Dan. Rest here, then go
    upstairs and talk to the moogle about mognet. You will get a letter from Ruby,
    but that's just fun stuff. Save your game, then go back outside the inn. Then go
    up the stairs to the right of the inn. You will have another ATE of Vivi. It
    seems that the Burmecian's like to use a word that starts with the same letter
    of their race name. If you look at Vivi while they are saying this, he doesn't
    look affected at all. Then the Oracle will come, all laid back, and preserve the
    peace.
    
    After the ATE, take the northern bridge up to the Cathedral area. This is a big
    purple building. Go inside and talk to the two Oracle guards. One of them will
    give you a message from Freya. It basically says to go wait in the inn. You know
    how to get there. But you might be asking "So why did we just rest?" The simple
    answer is that when you are about to go in the inn, Dan will run up and tell
    everyone that a kid is getting mauled by an Antlion.
    
    Of course, the Oracle just basically shrugs him off and walks away. Follow Dan
    down to the entrance of the Settlement. If you talk to him, he will just state
    the obvious. Go to the left, this is the whirlpool that Quina jumped into. This
    time, however, it won't be vacant. You will see the huge Antlion trying to
    attack the rat kid. He looks familiar... Bah, anyway, the team will meet up and
    we will find out that this is "Prince Puck." I love alliteration.
    Oh, another boss fight awaits.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Antlion
    HP: 4000
    Steal: Gold Helm, Mythril Vest
    Party: Zidane (15), Vivi (15), Freya (15), Quina (15)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    This boss fight isn't very tough. The Antlion has three attacks. The first one,
    which we should all be familiar with, is called Fira. This will do around 200
    damage on one person. It's not to bad, it can be healed. Then we have Counter
    Horn, which is Antlion's counterattack. He will use this often, but it normally
    misses. In my fight it missed 5 times. It's not a reliable counterattack. When
    it does hit, though, it does around 200 damage. The last attack that Antlion
    uses is one that you should be doesn't abuse. He rarely uses Sandstorm. This is
    an attack that hits everyone's HP to the critical stage. This is the yellow
    stage in HP, it will bring everyone's HP down to around 50-70. This attack is
    similar to Beatrix's Shock Break, but you can fight back this time. When Antlion
    uses this, you should quickly counter with Quina's White Wind. This will restore
    200 HP to everyone in the party and give you time to heal more. He shouldn't
    abuse Sandstorm, I only saw it once in the whole fight. I say "Whole Fight" as
    if the fight was long. This was a very short fight. Zidane should be physically
    attacking and not stealing. You can get most of those items a little later in
    the game. Vivi, who will be your god of the fight, should abuse the usage of
    Blizzara. Since Antlion uses Fira, we know that he's weak to Blizzara! This
    should do a huge 1000 damage to Antlion. Now you know why this fight doesn't
    last very long. Freya should use Lancer like theirs no tomorrow. This should do
    around 300 damage. Also, when Antlion uses Sandstorm, have Freya use Reis' Wind.
    This will restore everyone's HP 1/16 every turn. It is extremely good when
    Antlion uses Sandstorm, as it almost completely counters it. Lastly, Quina
    should be the healer of the fight. Quina's job should be throwing both Potions
    and Hi-Potions as needed. If Quina has any free turns to attack, please do so.
    The Needle Fork is a gamble, sometimes it will do 200 damage and sometimes 600
    damage. Obviously, when Antlion uses Sandstorm have Quina use White Wind. If,
    however, you have kept track of how much damage you have inflicted on Antlion
    throughout the fight, and see how much HP Quina has and s/he's maximum, you can
    finish Antlion off with Pumpkin Head. Remember that Pumpkin Head does your
    maximum HP minus the HP you have currently, always. When you get down to
    critical stage, this might be the end of the fight!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, Freya and Puck will have a little conversation. You can really
    see the difference between the way Puck and Freya talks. Puck doesn't want to
    see his father, and runs off. Before he goes, he says hi to Vivi. If you
    remember, Puck was the rat kid in the beginning of disc one. He was the kid that
    gave Vivi a "ticket" for the show. Then the screen will change to Freya at the
    Cathedral. She will talk to Burmecia's King a little about Puck, then they will
    have an ancient ceremony. The dancing sort of looks Irish, with them overusing
    their legs. The music is pretty good, however. After the ceremony, though,
    something really bad happens. All the strings snap on the harp. This can't be a
    good sign. Afterwards, the sandstorm protecting Cleyra disappears.
    
    Alexandria
    ----------
    
    Steiner and Marcus are trapped in a small cage dangling from the ceiling. They
    talk a little about Brahne backstabbing Steiner, and then we go to Dagger.
    Dagger contemplates on what Brahne has done so far. She then decides her plan of
    action to talk to the Queen. Then two Jesters run inside and tell Dagger that
    the Queen has summoned her. They argue for a little, and then the Princess says
    a line that is completely out of context. The lines so... Zidane. Then Zorn and
    Thorn force Dagger to come.
    
    The Queen, as fat as ever, converses with Dagger. They will talk about the
    destruction of Burmecia. Brahne will then make up some crap that doesn't even
    sound good. Dagger asks if that really is the truth, and of course Brahne says
    yes. You then have two options, of believing her or not. It doesn't matter which
    one you choose. They will both end in Kuja walking in. Kuja must have really
    liked Shakespeare, but he talks about a fairy tale, not a play. Kuja then uses a
    spell to make Dagger fall asleep. Oh, and imprudent means not wise. Zorn and
    Thorn extract the eidolons out of Dagger, and then we go back to Cleyra.
    
    Cleyra
    ------
    
    Zidane and Freya will talk a little bit about the Sandstorm, and then you have a
    couple options to choose from. It doesn't matter if you agree with her or not,
    both of them will decide to go down the trunk. Then you have control of Freya.
    Take the northern bridge up to the Cathedral area. Go inside and to the next
    room. Look behind the harp for a random eidolon drop. I got different ones every
    time I played through this game. The first time, I got a great Emerald. Second
    time, I got a craptacular ore. The third time, I got a Phoenix Pinion. It's
    pretty random.
    
    Afterwards, walk down to the entrance and meet up with the gang. Then you will
    have control of Zidane at the exit of the trunk. Go down the ladder and follow
    the walkway to the dreaded whirlpool room. The whirlpools stopped! This is... a
    miracle. Walk about halfway through this room and two Alexandrian soldiers will
    attack. They should be really easy at your level, one or two hits should be all
    you need to take one down. Sometimes they run away, cowards.
    
    At any rate, advance to the next room. Walk down to the fork and two more
    Alexandrian soldiers will jump you. Well, it probably should be considered the
    other way around. Retire them, then continue down to the next area. Run down and
    more Alexandrian soldiers will attack you. This is almost getting tedious. Take
    care of them, then continue down to the next area. In this area, the party will
    finally figure out that the Alexandrian's were just a decoy. Then Puck will run
    down, and tell them that the town is being terrorized. Everyone will follow Puck
    up to the town, and Beatrix will say that they fell for it.
    
    Meanwhile, the town is overrun by Black Mages! They will heartlessly kill the
    Oracles. Then we will go back to Zidane at the entrance. Two Cleyran's will ask
    for his help, and then a couple Black Mage Type B's will attack you. The battle
    should be cake, they aren't hard. Try to run up the stairs afterwards and a
    couple Alexandrian soldiers will be chasing some Cleyran's behind you. Zidane
    will take them on. They should be super easy also, even in three's. Then two
    more Type B's will fly down and attack you. More easy fights. Then Zidane will
    run up to the town.
    
    Two Oracles will ask you where to go. Tell them to head right. Then, run up to
    the inn and a widow with two kids will ask you where to go. From here, all you
    will have to do is give directions and fight Black Mages/Alexandrian Soldiers. I
    will give you where to go. If this isn't right, then please email me. Starting
    at the Oracles, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right, and Up. Some of these will go
    automatically. When you are at the Cathedral, Black Mages will come out of the
    sky and surround you. Then a Stranger will jump off the Cathedral will a Dragon
    Spear, just like Freya. He will kill all the Black Mages, and everyone will run
    inside.
    
    It seems that the Stranger is Sir Fratley, Freya's lover! The plot thickens!
    They will talk, and Sir Fratley seems to have lost his memory in an accident.
    Puck tells everyone this, then runs off after Fratley. This is bad news for
    Freya. Fratley runs off, leaving Freya all alone. Then they will decide to
    defend Cleyra. Before they can, though, Beatrix takes a Jewel and runs outside
    the Cathedral! Everyone will automatically follow her to the next room.
    
    Now you have control of Zidane in an outer room. Do not go outside yet. Talk to
    everyone you saved in this room to receive a lot of good gifts. Then talk to the
    moogle and get the letter. After that, you can use a tent and save the game. I
    know it may sound weird, but Beatrix will still be outside! Go outside, and
    Beatrix will again decide to attack you.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Beatrix II
    HP: 5,000
    Steal: Ice Brand, Thunder Gloves
    Party: Zidane (16), Vivi (16), Freya (16), Quina (16)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Beatrix is back. The same outcome will occur, just as last time. It all ends
    with a Stock Break, which brings everyone's HP down to 1. Anyway, you don't have
    to take all 5,000 HP off, just wait until she uses Stock Break on you. Beatrix
    has a couple attacks, but it's all the same stuff from last time. Shock on a
    character will do around 800 damage. She might choose to abuse this, and in the
    battle I fought she used it 3 times. That means three deaths. Shock is far by
    her worst attack. She uses Thunder Slash again, for around 450 damage. This
    attack isn't that bad, at least compared to Shock. Of course, she also has her
    regular physical attacks. You will be praying for these, as they do around 200-
    300 damage. Oh, and it seems that the developers decided to give Beatrix Cure in
    this battle. It will cure her 750 damage, but she doesn't use it much. Now, onto
    are characters. Zidane should be attacking, as usual. Beatrix doesn't have
    anything really good to steal, you can get most of it now or a little later in
    the game. Vivi should be casting Thundara, or any other 'ra spell he has. The
    order of how much damage they will do on Beatrix is: Thundara, Blizzara, and
    Fira. So if you have one or two, or all three, just spam Thundara. Freya should
    be using Lancer like she always does. This should continue to do around 500
    damage. When she runs out of MP, have her Jump and heal. Quina is going to be
    the healer if this fight. S/he should be throwing Phoenix Downs and Potions
    right and left. Have Quina use White Wind if things get ugly on all the
    characters. Rather then that, just wait until Beatrix uses Stock Break.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, Beatrix leaves with the Jewel in a bubble with a Black Mage.
    Then all the Black Mages will make bubbles, and fly off. Zidane, Freya, and Vivi
    will all jump in bubbles to follow Beatrix. Quina will run off.

    Enemies:
    --------
    None
    
    The Red Rose is Queen Brahne's flagship. Queen Brahne will summon Odin from the
    Dark Matter. Then we will have a sweet FMV of Odin destroying Cleyra. Queen
    Brahne will be very pleased.
    
    Zidane, Vivi, and Freya will arrive at the Red Rose in the bubbles. Freya is
    mortified by the destruction of Cleyra. Zidane runs over to find Beatrix. Zidane
    says that someone is coming, and the three hide. Beatrix comes out, and a half-
    naked Alexandrian soldier praises Beatrix to death. Beatrix contemplates on the
    destruction of Cleyra, then a couple Black Mages teleport away. Beatrix will
    talk a little more, then report to the Queen. You will now have control of
    Zidane.
    
    Walk up the stairs, then follow where Beatrix went. In the next area, we will
    see Beatrix and the Queen talk. Brahne, greedy as ever, will snatch the jewel
    and demand that Beatrix gets the last of them. Beatrix asks how Garnet is doing,
    but all Brahne can say is that Garnet is going to get beheaded for stealing her
    jewel. Zidane will hear this and start to yell out. Freya will calm him down,
    and then Vivi will run off. You will then be at the next screen. Try to run over
    and down the stairs and you will see a moogle run up and back down the screen.
    Follow him back to where you heard Brahne and give him a letter. Then save, and
    finally go back over and down the stairs. Talk to Vivi, and everyone will jump
    in a telepod.

    Enemies:
    --------
    Alexandria Soldier (500 HP)
    Black Mage Type C (600 HP)
    Bandersnatch (900 HP)
    Zorn (Boss)
    Thorn (Boss)
    Beatrix III (Boss)
    Tantarian (Optional)
    
    Now it's time to get back to Steiner and Marcus, who are still stuck in the
    birdcage. Marcus will give Steiner an idea to escape, and then we will have a
    small game to play. Push left and right to sway the cage back and forth. After
    you get some momentum, start to go left and right in the middle of going one
    way. Obviously, when the cage is going either way push the analog stick to get
    more speed. When you get completely off the screen, you will crash into a wall.
    
    Steiner will yell that he is coming for the Princess, and then we have control
    of Steiner and Marcus. This is one of the best places in the entire game to
    level up Steiner. Why? Because if you stand somewhere, Alexandrian Soldiers will
    continue to run up to you and attack you, making it easy to fight. Alexandrian
    Soldiers are really easy to defeat. Steiner can take them out in one hit with
    his Blood Sword. He will also get HP when he hits them, making it so that you
    cannot lose. Have Marcus kill himself, since we won't have him for much longer.
    Have Steiner stand in one position and the Alexandrian Soldiers run up and
    attack.
    
    Alexandrian Soldiers also give GREAT experience! No doubt that Steiner is a lot
    of levels behind, so use this chance to fly up levels! I advise that you go to
    at least level 20. This will get Steiner around 3-4 levels passed everyone else,
    but it will be worth it. Getting 700 experience per fight is amazing! Try to
    equip something with counter to make the levels go up even faster.
    
    When you are ready, go up the ladder in the left part of the screen. Then go
    through the door to Steiner's right. Steiner and Marcus will run up the stairs,
    and Marcus will say that he is going to leave to Evil Forest. Then Zidane, Vivi,
    and Freya will go down in bubbles. They will talk about Dagger's execution, and
    we will finally have a strong party! A thirty-minute timer will start up and we
    will see everyone run down a hall. Marcus will talk to Zidane for a little bit,
    and then he will close the gate on some Alexandrian Soldiers and leave.
    
    First off, don't worry about the time limit unless you want to fight the
    optional boss. Thirty minutes is WAY more then you will need to find Dagger.
    Anyway, go down and outside of the castle. Then circle around to the grand
    entry. Make sure that you run right past all the Alexandrian Soldiers, they are
    time wasters. Once you are inside the grand entry room, there will be a guard on
    both sides of the stairs. You will also see a huge picture of Brahne. If you
    want to fight the optional boss, whom you SHOULD NOT, then go to the left before
    the stairs. You will be in a room with a lot of scholars. Go down to the last
    bookcase and you will get a field icon. Press X, and get ready to fight an
    optional boss!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Tantarian (Disc 2)
    HP: 20000
    Steal: Silver Fork, Demon's Mail, Elixir, Ether
    Party: Zidane (16), Vivi (16), Freya (16), Steiner (20)
    Difficulty: Very Hard
    
    Please read this whole strategy before fighting! You can fight the Tantarian at
    Disc Two and Three. This strategy will cover disc two. Before we start, I would
    like to say that fighting him in disc two is a MAJOR MISTAKE UNLESS YOU HAVE THE
    PROPER EQUIPMENT. You should at least have Bio with Vivi, and everyone has to
    have Auto-Potion. If you don't have Bio, then substitute one of the 'ra's for
    it. Why do you need Auto-Potion? When Tantarian attacks, he usually does Paper
    Storm. This is a horrible attack that will do around 500 damage to everyone in
    the party! So if you wanted to heal you would have to blow all your turns. So,
    Auto-Potion is a must for this fight. He also has Edge. This is a good attack
    because it will only hit one character for 800 damage. If Steiner gets hit with
    this then use Minus Strike on him for great damage. Okay, now before we continue
    Tantarian has two forms: Book Form and Cute Form. In Book Form he wreaks havoc
    on the party with all of his attacks. He also wastes turns looking for his cute
    form. He will keep going to pages until he finds it. You have to inflict a lot
    of HP off of him before he finds cute form. You will do little damage to him in
    this form, so just keep attacking him. When he changes to cute form, DO NOT
    PHYSICALLY ATTACK HIM! He will close his book and go back to Book Form again!
    However, you can attack him with magic. Have Vivi use his best spell and Steiner
    use Magic Sword. Freya should use Lancer and Zidane should steal and heal the
    party. This is at Cute Form, however. At Book Form, have everyone hack away with
    Magic and Physical attacks to get him to book form. Zidane should attack and
    steal. Vivi should use his best magic. Steiner should use Magic Sword/Attack.
    Lastly, Freya should heal and attack. Don't worry if you run low on magic, just
    use ethers. This battle should take a very long time, so try to get here as fast
    as possible for your time limit. I hope that you have a lot of Hi-Potions,
    Potions, and Phoenix Downs, or you will fall. Chemist on Freya is also needed so
    she can be a better healer.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Okay, after the optional fight, go back to the main entry room with the ugly
    Brahne picture. Go up the stairs and to the right, and then go down the room and
    to the next corridor. You might remember this place at the beginning of the
    game. Go up the stairs. This is where you first meet Dagger. Go north at the
    fork and to the double doors. Follow the red carpet north to the next set of
    doors.
    
    This is where Brahne and Dagger talked before. It seems like a dead end but it
    isn't. Go up the steps to the fireplace. Go to the left of it and you will see a
    purple light. Choose to move it and the fireplace will open a secret passageway!
    Go down the stairs. In the next area, you will see a moving path and two
    treasure chests to the left, and stairs straight ahead. We are almost to Zorn
    and Thorn so if you have more then 5 minutes left, try to get the treasure.
    
    Jump onto the moving path, and it will bring you to the stairway side. From
    here, jump back on the other side of the path and it will bring you to the
    chests. Open them for an Ice Brand and Tent. If you have Auto-Potion on Steiner,
    then have him equip the Ice Brand. After that, take the moving path back to the
    stairway side and run down the spiral stairs. It should take around a minute to
    get down to the end, so don't fret.
    
    Once you reach the end, you will be at a circular platform. To the north will be
    a double door and to the south will be another area. Take the doors to the
    north. You will see Zorn and Thorn jumping about. They will run down to you and
    attack you.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Zorn
    HP: 5000
    Steal: Stardust Rod, Partisan
    Party: Zidane (17), Vivi (17), Freya (17), Steiner (20)
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    Boss Name: Thorn
    HP: 3000
    Steal: Mythril Armor
    Party: Zidane (17), Vivi (17), Freya (17), Steiner (20)
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    At first, all the HP both of them have might discourage you. Don't, this battle
    is pretty easy. You must be glad you finally get to fight your comic relief.
    Anyway, neither Zorn nor Thorn attacks regularly. They have to give power to
    each other. In the next turn, they will unleash this power upon you. It can be
    pretty devastating if you let it be. However, if you have someone attack one of
    them, and the other three attack the other, their power is neutralized! This
    means no attacks on you! You will only need to kill one of them before they give
    up. So, focus your power on Thorn, because he has less HP. Then have one other
    character hit Zorn so he doesn't use any attacks. Have Zidane, Vivi, and Steiner
    attack Thorn and Freya attack Zorn. This will make it so neither of them can use
    their powers. Okay, let's start out with Freya. Freya will attack Zorn
    physically to neutralize his power. That's it. Don't have her jump or use
    Lancer. Her job is to neutralize his power. Got it? Good. Okay, now onto Thorn.
    Have Zidane attack, Vivi use Thundara, and Steiner use Thundara Sword. This
    fight won't last long. Zidane will do around 600 damage, Vivi will do 700
    damage, and Steiner will do 1700 damage! This is a pathetically easy fight! Zorn
    and Thorn will jump to the back row, and this fight will be over.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, Zorn and Thorn will say that it is "to late" and they will run
    off. Go north to where Dagger is. Then the timer will stop. Steiner will start
    mourning like hell over Dagger. Freya will say that her heart is still beating,
    and that she will live. We then have a small ATE of Marcus in Evil Forest
    running to Blank. After that, you will have control of Zidane. He will be
    carrying Dagger. Save at the moogle and look at mognet one screen back. Then,
    return all the way up the stairs Queen Brahne's chamber. This is the room where
    the secret passageway was. Run all the way back up the stairs, hop on the moving
    platforms, and go back into the chamber. Zidane will put Dagger on a couch, and
    Zorn and Thorn will come in. They're no problem. Then General Beatrix comes in.
    She could be a problem.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Beatrix III
    HP: 6000
    Steal: Ice Brand, Survival Vest
    Party: Zidane (17), Vivi (17), Freya (17), Steiner (20)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Beatrix again. Sigh. This is getting boring. She has the same old moves as last
    time. Shock is not the all end attack anymore, however. It should only do around
    500 damage. That's more then curable. Thunder Slash is almost pathetic now, it
    does a mere 250 damage. They replaced Stock Break with Climhazzard, it's the
    same move but it looks cooler. You might notice that Beatrix is a lot easier in
    this fight. Her attacks do a lot less and she doesn't abuse Shock. Zidane should
    stick to attacking because she has nothing worth stealing. The Ice Brand isn't
    all that exciting and the Survival Vest is old. He should do around 500 damage
    per hit. Vivi should use Thundara exclusively, it will do the most out of the
    three 'ra's. This will do around 700 damage. Steiner, who will be your valiant
    knight, should use Thundara Sword. This will do around 1,500 damage. Freya is
    the healer as always. You should have Auto-Potion by now on all characters,
    however. If Freya isn't healing, she should do her usual Lancer move. This will
    do around 500 damage. As you can see, the party has grown a lot stronger, but
    Beatrix hasn't. This makes this fight pretty boring. She might use Cure; but it
    is a useless move. She will only cure herself 800 damage, while the party will
    be taking around 3,000 damage off of her per group turn. If the game had not
    ended it with Climhazzard, you would have been able to defeat her.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Yet again after a Beatrix battle everyone is beat. Zidane then sprouts up and
    tells Beatrix about what Brahne has done to Garnet. Beatrix finally excepts the
    truth, and Beatrix will do a spell on Dagger to wake her up. Brahne will then
    show up and Beatrix will defy her. Beatrix will get ready to fight, and Freya
    will fight alongside her. Zidane, Vivi, Dagger, and Steiner will go down the
    secret passage while Zorn and Thorn sick their dog on Freya and Beatrix.
    
    You finally get to fight with Beatrix! This battle is pretty easy. Don't use
    Beatrix's magic unless you want to. The Bandersnatch will go down in one hit.
    Back to Zidane, hop on the moving platform quickly and get to the other side.
    Then run down the stairs fast, as you see that you just dodged a Bandersnatch.
    In the next area, a path will go up and three Black Mage Type C's will come out.
    Then you will be in a battle against them.
    
    These Black Mages are the cream of the crop. (The best of the best.) Still, they
    aren't worthy opponents. They only have 600 HP, so Zidane and Steiner can each
    take one out. After the fight, run down the stairs some more. The Bandersnatch
    that you just ditched has finally thought of the idea to jump down. He will
    attack you, and this time you will have to fight two. No problem, Steiner will
    be able to one hit kill one, and with Vivi's magic and Zidane's attack, the
    other will be dead shortly afterwards.
    
    Go down to the next area and the game will take over from here. Steiner will
    have an epiphany and decides to go help Beatrix and Freya. I guess the
    developers thought it would be a no-no to have Vivi and Steiner in the same
    party. Anyway, Zidane will agree to get Dagger to Doctor Tot and Steiner will
    run off. Then another Bandersnatch will drop in. This time you only have to kill
    one, but you don't have your destroyer Steiner with you. You don't need to use
    magic prudently (wisely) so have Vivi use any 'ra he has. The party will run on
    and we will switch back to Freya and Beatrix.
    
    Bandersnatchs surround them, and you are in a fight. Now is a good time to use
    Beatrix's magic. Try any area magic and this fight we be over before it even
    starts. You get mucho experience. Then, as two more Bandersnatchs are about to
    devour Beatrix and Freya, Steiner comes up. Then we have another battle versus
    two of them. This time it will be cake with Steiner. Have Freya finish of either
    of the other two's Bandersnatch. Now you will be back to Zidane
    
    Have Zidane go down to the circular platform. This was the area before you found
    Dagger. Instead of going up to the Dagger room, go down. Then run down to the
    trap platform room. Fall for it, like the game wants you too. Afterwards, Zorn
    and Thorn will run out and boast about their trick. Then, though, Marcus and
    Blank will arrive and give them some serious pwnage. Then Zidane and the crew
    will jump on the Gargant.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Ralvuimago
    HP: 3500
    Steal: Oak Staff, Adaman Vest
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    Party: Zidane (17), Vivi (17), Dagger (14)
    
    This battle is ridiculously easy. Ralvuimago is not the other snake you
    encountered, he is a little stronger and has better attacks. When you attack him
    physically, he will become compact. This will give him huge defense. Your
    attacks will be like you have the mini status effect. If you attack him
    physically while he is compact, he will use a move called Power of the Land. It
    does a lot of damage to everyone, including himself. However, it is earth type
    damage, so it will heal him. Don't attack him while he is compact! Ralvuimago
    has a move called Ultra Sound Wave. These will mini a character, and render them
    useless. You cannot cure this status effect yet, so it's time to fret. He has
    Thundara, which will do around 150 damage to each party member. Lastly,
    Ralvuimago has Stab, his physical attack. This will only do around 200 damage to
    one character, so it's no big deal. Okay, so why give this guy a Very Easy, you
    might be asking? Well, I just stumbled over something to abuse in this fight.
    Ralvuimago has to use a turn to become compact, and he can't attack unless you
    hit him while he is compact. So what is there to abuse? Well, what I did was
    have Zidane attack physically. He would become compact and waste a turn. Then I
    had everyone defend, and he uncompacted. After that, I had Zidane hit him
    physically again and he became compacted again. You see where I am going here?
    He can't touch you if he has to waste a move to compact and uncompact, so this
    battle can even be done slowly with Zidane attacking like that. However, most of
    you don't want to do that because it would be a yawnathon. So, have Vivi cast
    Slow and Dagger cast Blind on the snake. This makes him go a lot slower and his
    physical attacks will miss often. Now, have Vivi spam Thundara until the cows
    come home. This will do around 750 damage each time. Dagger can be the healer
    with Cura. Lastly, Zidane can steal the stuff he has and heal. If Ralvuimago
    uses Ultra Power Wave on Vivi, then use the above tactic with Zidane. It might
    take a little while, but you will have no chance of losing.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, you might notice that the snake dies. However, it seems to come
    back from the dead and starts chasing you on the Gargant! You fly right passed
    Treno! You finally see the light at the end of the tunnel, but that isn't a good
    thing. Then we go back to Brahne. Zorn and Thorn will say that the Queen's
    guests have arrived and a soldier will inquire for them. Brahne will do some
    incomprehensible move and the soldier will come back. It seems Zorn and Thorn
    are looking for a job. Then two Bounty Hunters come in and talk to the Queen.
    Watch closely as events unfold. Take more notice of the silent red head, though.
    Then it seems that Brahne is going on a trip.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Enemies:
    --------
    Seeker Bat (600 HP)
    Sand Scorpion (500 HP)
    Zaghnol (1200 HP)
    
    It seems that the Gargant crashed at Pinnacle Rocks. The threesome will get to
    talking for a little bit, then a floating old man will appear. Dagger will
    recognize him once he says his name. He is Ramuh, Thunder God. They talk a
    little bit about the destruction of Cleyra, and then he will tell you that if
    you find five manifests, and put them in the right order, he will be your
    eidolon.
    
    Before we go any further, let's talk about the enemies. Seeker Bats are no
    problem at all, they do small damage. They might absorb HP, but it will only be
    a little. You might of fought Sand Scorpions at Cleyra Trunk, and they are the
    exact same as before. They should be even easier to defeat. And, of course, we
    know that in almost every area of the game we have one _big_ enemy. This is the
    Zaghnol. Like the Lamia, Ironite, Sand Golem, and Zuu before him, he is the only
    real challenge of the area. He is a stronger version then the one at the
    festival. He has more HP, but the same strength. You should have fairly good
    equipment on, at least better then you had in the festival, so they shouldn't be
    much of a problem. They come in singles, so you can have Zidane attack and Vivi
    cast Thundara for a one-two punch.
    
    Anyway, back to the five-part story. This can be considered optional, but it is
    extremely easy to get the five and put them in the right order. You will also
    get Ramuh pretty early, so you can get the ability points done with him and go
    onto a better eidolon. So, I really hope that you join me in doing this story.
    Go to the left a little ways from where Dagger is standing and Ramuh will pop
    up. Get "Beginning" from him.
    
    Go up to the area you were just in. This was where the Gargant crashed. Go near
    the ledge and you will get "Hero". Go back down to the previous area. From here,
    go save and tent at the moogle. Your HP and MP won't be restored from the last
    battle, and being fresh out of MP here is a bad thing. Go down the slope and
    take the Mythril Vest in the barely visible chest to the south. Then, from the
    chest go north and stay on the right. You will see Ramuh if you go up far
    enough. Take "Human" and continue left.
    
    You will see two chests in this next area. One will be north of you and the
    other will be a little ways away. Go to the north one. Before you have a chance
    to grab it, Ramuh will pop up. Talk to him to get "Cooperation" then take the
    chest for another Ogre. Then, go around the slope next to the chest to another
    area. Run up a little and get "Silence" from Ramuh. Now you have all five parts
    of the story.
    
    Go back down the last area and this time go up the slope. Go north and take the
    bridge right and then follow the path. If you decide to jump down to get the
    chest, you will find a Mythril Armlet, but have to go all the way around and
    back up. You decide. Anyway, follow the path through and you will see Ramuh. He
    will tell you that you found all five parts of the story, but now you have to
    put them in order. Please try to do this before I tell you the order.
    
    The order is Beginning, Cooperation, Silence, and Hero/Human. You can choose
    either Hero or Human; it's your decision to which one you think is better. It
    doesn't matter if you choose the first or the latter. It ends up with you
    getting the Peridot, an add-on for the Ramuh eidolon. Then Zidane will stumble
    upon why you could of chose either Hero or Human. Read the side quest section
    for more detail.
    
    Now you can either decide to jump off now or later. Choose to jump off now. We
    then see two of the best FMV's in the entire game. Queen Brahne is destroying
    Lindblum with cannons, and she brings in Black Mages to take care of the ground
    troops. They then proceed to burning up the entire city. Then Brahne summons the
    Atomos eidolon. It opens it's mouth larger then Quina ever could and sucks up a
    lot of the city. This horrifies dagger.

    When they reach Lindblum, Zidane says it is best that Vivi hides. Then we have
    control of Zidane in the Business District. You will see that it is still
    intact, but badly damaged. Go north and you will meet up with three townspeople
    torturing a Black Mage. Continue north and in the next screen go northeast. You
    will remember this as the fountain circle with all the shops. You will see the
    Minister talking to an officer. Then everyone will converse and the Minister
    will take you to see the Regent.
    
    The ogle looks as sad as ever. They will talk a little bit, and then two
    soldiers will bring Vivi in the room. It's all a misunderstanding, but of course
    they cover it up with the first thing they can think of. Then they talk about
    Kuja being the Magic Dealer (almost as bad as supplying Brahne with drugs) and
    of course Zidane knows all about the Outer Continent. Then everyone decides that
    if we beat on Kuja we can beat on Brahne. That doesn't sound right.
    
    Anyway, The three decide that they all want to go find Kuja. Then, Zidane asks
    for an airship. Well, it seems that is to no availability, either. Cid will then
    talk about the two conditions of their surrender. The Airship and the Falcon's
    Claw. The weird part is that all of these eidolons have been scattered about the
    four great nations... why? This is a question that will definitely be answered
    if we go to the Outer Continent.
    
    The only way that you can get to the Outer Continent is either to swim or find
    this excavation site in the marsh north of Lindblum. I'd like the latter a
    little myself. I think we can all guess what the Marsh is called? Anyway, Cid
    will hand you some cold hard cash and we will go on a shopping spree. Buy the
    new equipment that the game has to offer. The Equipment Shop and Synthesis Shop
    will still be there, but the Item Shop will be in ruins. Talk to the woman that
    is on top of it to buy items. Oh, and don't forget to check the Synthesis shop.
    It has new stuff, including Zidane's Exploda, a new dagger. When you are ready,
    talk to the man by the fountain.
    
    You will then see a pretty long ATE. It seems that Brahne wants to go to
    somewhere... but where? Anyway, Zidane and Dagger will sneak inside the castle
    and do down the lift. They will talk about going to the outer continent, and
    then the lift will reach the base floor. Vivi will meet up with them. Then, Cid
    will give them a rag. Err... a rag of the entire world. It might prove useful.
    Now, there will be another ATE and then we will be at Dragon's Gate again. Save
    at the moogle, and buy supplies at the guy if you want. He has all the Equipment
    and Items that the places in the Business District did, he just can't synthesis
    worth beans.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Ah, finally back on the world map. Just suck in all that nice, fresh mist. Oh,
    back to our story. You can do the same stuff as you could last time here. You
    can go to Chocobo Forest and wrangle up some Chocographs or go to Qu's Marsh.
    Uh... just in case you didn't know, Qu's Marsh is that flat forest straight
    ahead of you. I advise that you at least go get Choco now. He will be useful for
    transportation in the forgotten continent. Anyway, when you are ready, enter the
    flat forest north of Lindblum's Dragon Gate.
    
    Qu's Marsh
    ----------
    
    You should be a regular here. Go north from the planks then go through the grass
    a little north of Mogster. You will be at a pond. Quina will be here! Talk to
    Quina and s/he will decide to come with. You all know you missed Quina. Anyway,
    go back down the brush to Mogster. Then, go right all the way. You should go to
    another area. Go down the path right all the way until you reach the last brush
    opening. You should notice it because it is darker. Quina will say that s/he
    smells frogs and run off. Zidane will follow him, and you will stumble upon what
    you were looking for! Quina go in. You do too.

    Walk down the stairs and into the guts of Fossil Roo. You will now be in a
    cavern-type room. Go down and turn the corner and the ground will start shaking!
    Then, a cage will go over an opening to the stairs and a weird machine will come
    out of the side. It's time to run! You will have to successfully outrun the
    machine through three areas. In each of these areas there will be throwing
    knifes that will sway back and forth. These won't do any damage to you, but will
    stop you from advancing.
    
    Fighting the machine, Armodullahan (Wow, long name!) really isn't that hard. He
    has three attacks: Spear, Level 5 death, and Thundara. Spear will do a little
    damage. Level 5 death will kill any and all party members instantly if their
    current level is divisible by 5. Thundara is just a regular secondhand enemy
    attack. No big deal. You will only have to do around 600 damage before he falls
    apart. He will, however, put himself back together and go after you in the next
    area.
    
    The first time I went through I specifically stopped and attacked it through all
    three areas. He was a piece of cake. Anyway, there will be a crumbling in the
    ground and the machine will fall in it while Zidane safely jumps over it. Then
    everyone will go inside the next room and fall on each other. Then the bounty
    hunter that met up with Brahne will arrive. They will converse for a bit about
    Brahne being bad, and then we have another boss fight.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Lani
    HP: 6000
    Steal: Coral Sword, Gladius, Ether
    Party: Zidane (18), Vivi (18), Dagger (18), Quina (18)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Lani really isn't that hard of a boss. The simple reason why I give her a medium
    is because of her arsenal of attacks. She has every single one of the 'ra
    spells, which will do around 300 damage to one character. She sometimes wastes a
    turn to scan someone to find his or her weakness, and then uses the appropriate
    spell. That's a big waste of two turns, in my opinion. You also might find her
    use Aera if the character's weakness is Wind. No big deal there either. Her big
    attack in this fight is Water. Water is pretty devastating. It does 300 damage
    to every character. That's really bad. However, she doesn't abuse this power.
    You might see her use it once or twice in the fight, but that's it. Oh, and she
    has physical attacks, but they are just like a spell. I want you to watch out
    for Dagger and Vivi. They have low health, so 300 damage here and 300 damage
    there and they are goners. If you are the recommended level, then you should
    have around 550 HP with Dagger and 650 HP with Vivi. These two characters are
    key to this battle, so keep them in tip top shape, capiche? Anyway, onto
    character duties. Zidane should be physically attacking Lani, he should be doing
    around 1000 damage each hit. Vivi's job is to cast any of the 'ra spells or Bio.
    All the 'ra spells will do the same damage, Lani is a pretty steady character in
    the weaknesses department. Dagger should cast Blind on Lani the first turn; this
    will make her physical attacks laughable. Afterwards, she should cure people
    with spells and medical items as needed. Abuse Cure, it is still a good
    restoration ability. Quina's role in this fight is to be on standby when Lani
    does Water. When she does, Quina should Counter with White Wind. This will make
    her Water attack pretty useless. Quina should stick to attacking and healing as
    needed. When I attacked with Quina I only did around 50 damage. I didn't know
    what gived, but throughout the entire fight Quina would only do 50 damage. So
    Quina can also heal. With Zidane and Vivi attacking, while Dagger and Quina are
    healing, there is almost no way you can lose. Lani gets a medium because even
    though she has some great attacks, your party is so medically strong that it
    wouldn't make a difference. She isn't like Beatrix; She doesn't have any 800
    damage attack that will completely kill you.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight Lani "will let you go" and run off. That sounds like a victory
    to me. Anyway, go down the stairs that she was occupying. In the next screen,
    you will hear a Gargant, and then you will see it go by. Zidane will get the
    bright idea to use it as transportation. This is possibly the worst place in the
    game next to the Cleyra Trunk. You will find out why.
    
    Run up the steps to Zidane's right and follow the path to yellow flowers. Take a
    flower, then go over east a little and the field icon will pop up. Press X and
    the Gargant will come. This time, however, he will eat the flower, and Zidane
    will hop on its back. It will then continue going on its small route and Zidane
    will jump off it. From here, go north up the steps to next area. Then go down
    the stairs and talk to the treasure hunter.
    
    The Treasure Hunter will tell you all the basics of this hell. He tells you that
    the only way to get further inside the site is to hitch a ride on the Gargant's
    back. Then he will tell you that if you just go onto a Gargant, it will lead you
    to a dead end. So, you have to control which way the Gargant goes by pulling
    water switches. These water switches are curiously a little while away from
    where you hop down, so you will have to fight a lot of battles. If this doesn't
    give you a good idea of this... place then you will see as we get further
    inside.
    
    Now let's talk about the enemies. I always knew you wanted to. Anyway, let's
    start off with Seeker Bat's. These little sucker suck, literally suck, your HP
    at will. They aren't really that hard, though. Good one-hit kills with Zidane.
    Abomination's look weird, but aren't that hard to defeat. Eat them to learn,
    which is a great skill to use later in the game. Be sure to keep trying to eat
    them until you get Night. Feather Circles join the above two in being very easy
    to defeat, but annoying because of how often you have to fight them. Lastly,
    Griffins join the Lamia and Sand Golem as the "destroyers" of the area. Griffins
    have the most HP and can do the most damage. That still doesn't mean they are
    hard to beat.
    
    Okay, now go down the steps from the treasure hunter to the moogles. You will
    see a familiar face, Stiltzkin. Talk to him and buy the Ether, Remedy, and
    Phoenix Pinion he has for 555 Gil. Then, talk to the other moogle. You can buy
    medical items from him at Mogshop. Talk to him about Mognet and he will tell you
    about his letters. Then save your game.
    
    Now it is time to level up. I want everyone at level 20 before we continue. It
    shouldn't be very hard; the enemies here give a lot of experience. Remember that
    when you fight Abominations that they have Night, so try to prudently attack
    them. They have around 900 HP, so one hit by Zidane should bring their health
    down to an eatable level. The other enemies are not hard. Just remember to
    switch between equipment after battle as you gain AP. (Don't use equipment that
    already has a mastered skill.)
    
    For Dagger, this should be pretty tough. She can learn a lot of stuff right now.
    Try to learn Ramuh first so Dagger can have a powerful attack. Zidane will be
    pretty cut and dry. Equip the Power Belt and Counter ability if you run out of
    add-on's to teach him. Vivi should finish up the 'ra's, if he already hasn't
    already. If he has, then move onto Bio in the Oak Staff. It's nice to be well
    balanced in the 'ra department, because you can do a certain spell for a lot of
    enemies because they are weak to that spell. Quina is nothing to worry about in
    abilities at the moment, you can give s/he anything you can think of.
    
    All right, back to the game. From the two moogles, go right to the next area.
    This area is pretty straightforward; there will be flowers and a dead end path.
    Get a flower, and then walk a couple steps to the end of the path. You will see
    the field icon. As always, the Gargant will eat the flower while you hop on its
    back. It will bring you to a different area. In this area, go north to the next
    screen. Take the Fairy Earrings in the chest, and then go back to the previous
    area. Pick one of the flowers, and the Gargant will take you back to the
    previous area.
    
    From here, go left and you will be back in the moogle area. Go north up the two
    flights of stairs and to the next area. Pick the flower and call the Gargant. It
    will take you over and up. In this screen, go right. You will find one of the
    switches. Flip it, and in the upper right corner you will see that you changed
    the path of the Gargant. Now go back to the previous screen. Then, pick a flower
    at the end of the path and call the Gargant in the middle of the path.
    
    Zidane will jump off in, yet again, a new area. Go left up the stairs then north
    to the next screen. Take the ether in the chest, then return to where the
    Gargant dropped you off. After that, go down the stairs and take the lower path
    north. Follow the scurvy path to another screen. You will see that this screen
    is where the moogle and treasure hunter are, but instead of being down there you
    will be at the switch. Pull it, and then go back to the Gargant. Pick the flower
    and call it again.
    
    You will be back in the area where the first switch was. Go left and flip it
    again. Then, go back to the previous screen and call the Gargant again. Go left
    and you will be back to the treasure hunter and moogles. Go down to where the
    moogles are. If you are low on potions, or anything else, buy them from Mogshop.
    Then, go right down the small path to another screen. We will find another
    Gargant area. Pick the flower and call it to go further in. You will now be at a
    second treasure hunter. You can buy equipment and medical items from him if you
    need to.
    
    After you are finished with items, go up the stairs to the right of him. Follow
    the small path to find the fourth switch. Flip it, then go right to another
    screen. Pick the flower and call the Gargant again. In this area, follow the
    small path right to _another_ screen. You will see a treasure hunter digging for
    something, but we will be on the upper level with a chest. Collect the Lamia's
    Tiara in it, and equip it on Dagger. Then, go back to the previous screen. Pick
    a flower and go over to the northwestern part of the area. Get on the wooden
    platform and call the Gargant.
    
    You will be back at the fourth switch area. Go left, and flip the switch. Then
    go back right and call the Gargant again. He will take you to another
    _different_ area. Now, go south and follow the path to the next screen. You will
    see vines all over the walls. Grab onto them, then head right. Water out of a
    lion's head will squirt at you, and you will fall into the water. Wait for the
    field icon to appear, then Zidane will backflip out.
    
    Go right and you will be at a small fork. You can go up the fork or follow the
    path. Go up the slope, and then grab onto the vines again. Go around and fall
    onto the path above you. Go south and right to the another area. This will be
    where a treasure hunter was digging. Talk to him and he will tell you that if
    you give him a potion, he will let you dig in this area. Agree, and he will hand
    you his pick.
    
    Now, you can hit the walls with your pick to find items. It will take a lot of
    hacking before Zidane finds something, though. Expect to hit the wall at least
    10 times before you buy an item. Anyway, when you are ready to proceed further,
    go to the upper level and around the walls on the platform. You will see a lot
    of rocks together; it almost looks as if an avalanche happened. Keep digging on
    that wall. You will hear "Ku..." then "Kupo..." then Kuppo the moogle will break
    out of the rocks after around 10 hits. You can do a lot of things with this
    moogle. Save your game, use a tent, buy some medical items, and finally agree to
    deliver a letter for him.
    
    Now, return back to the room with vines on the walls. When you try to leave the
    area, the treasure hunter will ask if you are quitting. Say yes and Zidane will
    give him his pick back. Then go left back to the vine room. Now, grab onto the
    vines and go as high as you can up. Then, go left past the lion head's and drop
    down onto the top level. Flip the switch, and you will see that it will finally
    say exit on it! Go back on the vines, and stay in front of a lion's head for a
    couple seconds. Water will then squirt you to the ground.
    
    After this, press X when the field icon pops up and Zidane will jump out. Now,
    go right. Instead of taking the slope up, follow the path down to the next
    screen. Pick a flower and run over to the end of the path. Call the Gargant, and
    he will take you to the exit! But you aren't out of the woods yet. Follow the
    path right and up. You will the light at the end of the tunnel! You are finally
    out of this god-forsaken hell! Zidane will comment on no mist being outside, and
    we will finally be on the world map!
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Finally we are back on the world map! Adjust your camera so that it is facing
    north. Press select once to see the world map. Now, go north and you will see a
    small village in between some vines higher then you. Go through the small
    mountain pass below the village. Stay on the right side, and go alongside the
    wall. Now, go up and over to the village. If you got a Chocobo, then before you
    go up and over to head northeast to Qu's Marsh. Go around in and you should find
    Chocobo tracks. Call Choco at the tracks with a Gysahl Green. Choco is a
    _really_ good source of transportation because you don't have to fight enemies.
    Ride over to the village that we saw earlier.

    As you enter, Quina will run in hungrier then Atomos. Zidane will say that all
    Quina thinks about is food. Dagger basically calls Zidane a hypocrite, and says
    that all he thinks about is girls. Then everyone will run inside. Zidane will
    have to say "Rally-Ho" to get inside the village. The dwarves are very one
    minded. I'm sure if Zidane said "Rally-Hoes" that it would have been fine...
    
    Anyway, it's time to view some ATEs. The first ATE will be Vivi talking to some
    locals. Go northwest from the entrance and pick up the 2700 Gil. Then, if you go
    north from here, and pass the dwarf lady, you will see a field icon. If you
    press X Zidane will start to check out the dwarf lady and she will see him.
    Uh... anyway, check out the city. You will see all the basic stuff, inns, shops,
    and moogles. Just look around the town while you view the ATEs. If you talk to
    the people, they will say some pretty funny things.
    
    The last ATE that you will see is titled "Dagger and William." After you are
    finished with that, go back to the entrance. From here, go up north to the
    babilicious (not) dwarf lady. Turn left into another room right before her. Now,
    go north to and up the stairs. Then, go south to the southwest corner of the big
    room. You should see Vivi to the west. Converse with him and you will hear the
    other two dwarves, rather incomprehensibly, talk about trading goods. Vivi will
    run off and you will be faced with yet another ATE.
    
    Don't worry, this is one of the last ones. I promise. Eh... maybe not. In this
    ATE you will see some dwarves say hello (Rally-Ho) to a peculiar fellow that you
    cannot see in the screen. Well, whoever it is, he seems to have a pointy-hat.
    Now, go to the southeast corner of this room and down to the next area. Zidane
    will see a Black Mage! We just got our first lead, gumshoe! Vivi will run after
    him, and Zidane will start to follow him but see Dagger. Of course, he has to
    have a couple words with her before he continues to run after the mage.
    
    It seems that the Black Mage has escaped. Ah well, no big deal. That's why you
    got me, y'know? Well, you don't really need me. If you actually read the
    dialogue, or just looked at the blue words like I did, you should know that
    there seems to be a village southish from here. Don't leave yet, though. You
    still got to catch up on supplies! Go back to where Zidane (sort of) confronted
    the Black Mage. You can buy items here. But who wants items! Go to the next
    area, in the northeast corner of the screen, and you will see a weapon shop.
    Extol the lord! Buy as much equipment as you want. Afterwards, go back to the
    previous screen and talk to the moogle. Agree to deliver a letter. Finally, head
    back on over to the entrance and blow this Popsicle Stand.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Back to the World Map. If you look southeast of here, you will see a big forest.
    This is where you have to go. Don't fret, it's only about 10-12 enemies away.
    Maybe some Ragtime Mouse and Friendly Ladybug (SEE SIDE QUESTS), too. Meh, I
    just need to put a foot in my mouth. You will have to go east until you reach
    the ocean shores. Next, turn southwest (look at the map for guidance) and put
    your best foot forward into the forest. Plow on through to the end of it. You'll
    then see a big green blob smack dab in the middle of the forest at the end. Yep,
    this is suppose to be a forest entrance, folks. Enter here.

    If we weren't out of Fossil Roo yet, we have another bad place. You will see a
    fork in the road. You can go left or right (obviously). In the next couple of
    screens, all you will be doing is going left, or right. See, after you go one
    way, you will be at the same fork again. Follow my directions correctly, and you
    should be at Black Mage Village. What makes this place another Fossil Roo, you
    might ask? Well, you get A LOT of encounters here. Every five steps you take you
    will be in another random battle. This might be good, for good leveling up, but
    it just gets tiring after a while.
    
    Let's go over to the two bad boys of this area. We got are Zemzelett and
    Myconoid. Both are primarily Heterotrophs (I had to throw some Bio in here). Bad
    news first. Zemzelett are psycho maniacs that love to counter with psychokinesis
    for around 150 damage. It also will do some semi-good wind damage for 150
    damage. Another bad thing is they have around 1500 health, so they will take a
    couple hacks to kill. I highly advise that you use Vivi's Bio, Dagger's Ramuh,
    Quina's defends, and Zidane's attacks to plow on through them. You don't have to
    worry, an inn is literally around the corner and you will fight no bosses here.
    So, go a little bonkers on the magic if you want to. Myconoid aren't a real
    threat, I have yet to face one that lasted Vivi's Bio.
    
    Back to the fork in the road. You will have to go through a series of "right
    left" directions to get passed here. There's no magic that can get you through
    any quicker. The sequence is Right, Right, Right, Left, and Right. If you want
    to get technical, you would be going "northeast" and "northwest" but right-left
    directions seem funner. On the second to last direction, you will see a Black
    Mage on the other side of the fork. Just follow him your last right and you will
    be out of this maze. The Black Mage will do... magic and make a village appear.
    Vivi and Zidane will follow him inside.
    
    The Black Mages loitering at the entrance won't see you at first. Then, they
    will finally and run away. Vivi will follow them, and Dagger will decide to,
    also. Quina will run for food, as s/he always does. Then we will be left with
    good old Zidane. Then an ATE will pop up. You will see a list of a ton of them.
    Look at them while I show you some of the better items to get here. Go to the
    left, and inside the house. This seems to be a little shop. In fact, it is the
    equipment store. Zidane will startle the Black Mage, but you will still be able
    to buy items. The items here are really good, and I highly suggest that you get
    anything new. Then, go back outside.
    
    Now, go a little right of the house, still on the porch, and you will pick up an
    Elixir. Then, go back around and up to a fork. Go left, and left again to
    another area. You will see two houses. Go inside the one farthest away from you.
    Dagger will be inside here. Zidane will talk to her, and she will run off. This
    house is Black Cat's Synthesis Shop! You can synthesis a Rune Tooth here,
    Zidane's best weapon yet. You will also see a wide variety of accessories.
    Synthesis any of them if you like.
    
    Afterwards, go up the ladder in this room. This will take you to a "second
    floor" of a couple shops. Go north and follow the small plank to a treasure
    chest. Take the 843 Gil, and then go back to the Synthesis Shop. Take the 2000
    Gil behind the middle ladder, then go outside. If you go left a little, we will
    see Vivi go right passed Zidane to another place. Now go to the right house in
    this area. This is an item shop.
    
    Why would I steer you here? Well, for one you have to see all of the ATEs. In
    addition, you can buy HI-POTIONS HERE! We finally get to heal the party for more
    then 150 HP! Buy as many as you want, then exit via the door to the right. Go
    inside the next house to the right and you will be in a nice, cordial inn. Go
    through the open doorway to the right and Zidane will talk to Vivi for a little
    bit. Then the rest of the party will come and everyone will talk about what they
    have done thus far. Then you will be asked to either rest or not rest. Choose
    rest, and Quina will decide to go look for food.
    
    Vivi will walk outside the inn, and Dagger will continue to be worried about
    him. Zidane will... err... comfort her, I guess. Then, Zidane will tell Dagger a
    fairytale. Well, not exactly. It's about a man who goes on a quest to find his
    birthplace. Zidane cuts things short and the man returns. He didn't find what he
    longed for. He came home to his father. His father then proceeded to give him
    the worst beating of his life. Afterwards, the father oddly smiles at the son.
    Then the man knew that no matter where he was originally born, this was his
    home.
    
    Well, if the visuals didn't let you see eye to eye with who the "man" is, then
    you must really be out of it. Zidane is the man, and Baku is the father. What we
    learned was that Zidane must of always wondered about where he came from. Then,
    we change back to Vivi. He will be talking with wise #288 about death. Number
    288 will stumble upon what we think Vivi is looking for. Vivi finally sees that
    his "home" is with Zidane, Dagger, and especially Quina. Because without Quina,
    no one would be able to remind them to eat!
    
    The last part might not be true, but who cares. The next morning, we will find
    out that someone spotted a silver dragon at a place called Sanctuary just passed
    Conde Petie. I wonder who that could be. Then we will find out that there seems
    to be a mist source there. We will definitely check this out! Vivi will run
    over, then Quina will sadly come back. After that, Dagger decides that we must
    go to the Sanctuary.
    
    Before we go, equip all the weapons and armor that you bought. Remember to
    change your abilities accordingly. Then, leave via the entrance. Sadly, we won't
    be able to go through the forest; we will go back out to the World Map.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    You know where to go! Or at least, I hope you do. Go back over to Conde Petie,
    where everyone said they saw a silver dragon! This will bring us closer to the
    Sanctuary.

    Enemies:
    --------
    Troll (1400 HP)
    Gnoll (1400 HP)
    Hilgigars (Boss)
    
    Now that we are back in Conde Petie, we will have some more good old dialogue.
    This will basically tell you that the only way to get to the Sanctuary is
    through the village exit on the other side. This, however, is being heavily
    guarded by dwarves. Run inside the village. It seems we don't have to Rally-Ho
    again. Go north and take the first left door. Walk north up the stairs in this
    area. Now we will back at the big area, where we saw Vivi. Go to the
    northeastern corner of the room to see a dwarf blocking a doorway. He will tell
    you that you need to have a ceremony to enter. This will need to be held by "His
    Holiness."
    
    Now, go back over to the northwestern corner of the room and back to the
    previous area. You will see a man who looks holy walking up and down this
    corridor. This has to be the holy guy! Have Zidane talk to him, and we will find
    out that this ceremony is marriage. Dagger will, on cue, walk into the room.
    Zidane will ask her to marry her, and she will agree. Zidane will be shocked,
    and the wedding will start. Throughout the whole thing Zidane will talk to
    himself about his relationship with Dagger. Afterwards, they will be man and
    wife. Well, not exactly, it's just to get around these 2-foot dwarves. Zidane
    will try to kiss Dagger, but she will sidestep out of the way. He will jump for
    her, and fall with a pretty big bang.
    
    Afterwards, it seems you will have to announce your marriage to twins before you
    pass. When you get the option, CHOOSE TO HAVE VIVI AND QUINA GET MARRIED. This
    is hilarious, Quina is so happy when the whole thing ends. Before they get the
    chance to kiss, someone yells "Thief!" Now, if you by accident chose the first
    option, to announce to the twins, you won't see this hilarious scene. I can get
    you to the next part in the game, however. Go to the southeastern corner of this
    room and advance to the next area. Then, go to the northeastern corner of the
    room to get to another area. Then talk to the twins.
    
    Well, that's only if you chose the first option. If you didn't, after the second
    marriage Zidane and Dagger will automatically go to the twins. They will talk to
    the twins for a bit, and then "Thief!" will be yelled again. We will see a
    little girl and a moogle run passed you. The twins will run after them. In the
    next screen, the twins will explain that they cannot go any further and return
    back to their posts. Then the other newlyweds, Vivi and Quina, will arrive.
    Everyone will decide to press on further.
    
    Now it is time to make a switch. Before you go any further, take everything that
    you don't have a duplicate of off Quina. S/he'll be leaving us for a bit. After
    this, go north and east. You will see the thief on a branch and her moogle in
    the sky. They will talk to one another, of course the moogle (Mog) saying
    "Kupopopo" mostly. Then Mog will run away, leaving the accomplice behind. She
    will tell the gang that she doesn't taste good. Zidane retells Quina this. Then,
    Quina says that the moogle looks like it might be tasty and hops a hill with
    another bang. The girl then falls from the branch and Zidane catches her.
    
    Then we have some dialogue, and we get to name her. Now that we have to name
    her, you must know she will be the replacement for Quina! Her default name is
    Eiko, so that's what I'll call her. They will speak some more about stealing and
    Quina running after Mog. Afterwards, Dagger decides to take Eiko back home and
    Zidane says yes. Of course, he also says "Anything for my lovely wife." Then we
    have control of Zidane again, short a "thing" and up a 6-year-old.
    
    Now you have to "raise" a whole other character! Equip her with what you want.
    Be mindful of the abilities, though. In fact, that is how you should equip her
    by! Try to give her equipment with the best abilities on it. The Golem's Flute
    is fine, as it has Cura. Lamia's Tiara should be equipped for float. Magic
    Armlet for Silence. Magician's Robe/Mythril Vest for Auto-Potion. She should
    keep the Sapphire equipped until she learns Fenrir. Then equip her with Level Up
    and all the other necessaries.
    
    Now it's time to "talk about the enemies!" Well, none of the enemies here are
    anywhere near hard. Just hack away with attacks. Try to preserve magic for the
    upcoming boss fight. No need to list all the enemy tactics this time around.
    
    Okay, now that you have a feel for the land, let's get to business. This area is
    VERY confusing so read my directions carefully. Go right to another area. Then
    climb the roots in the middle of this area/pathway. After climbing, go left and
    you will be in a high level in the past area. Take the Red Stone in the statue.
    It should be in the middle of this level. Get the chest for a tent. Then, climb
    back down the roots and go back to where you found Eiko (lower level of previous
    area). This may get confusing, so I'll make some area maps now.

    Okay, back to the walkthrough. Now that you are back in area 1, go left and up
    to the roots. Climb them, then collect the remedy in the chest. Afterwards, go
    right and get the Blue Stone. Now, go back down the roots and run all the way
    over to area 3. The blocked way should now be open. Go up!
    
    If you go north a little more you will find Stiltzkin and a moggle. Buy the
    items from Stiltzkin. You should know what an Ether is and how valuable it is.
    Magic Tags can be bought later in the game; they cure zombie status affects.
    Now, talk to the regular moogle whose name is Suzana. Give her a letter, then
    save your game. If you used magic then use a tent. We will soon be in another
    scuffle with a boss. Now, go to the right and go down. Then climb the ladder and
    follow the path until it turns into tree roots. You can walk on this to the next
    area, too. We will now see a FMV of the Iifa Tree. Notice how it is spelled with
    an "I" and NOT a "L". I didn't catch onto that for a while, either. Anyway, go
    right to the next screen and the ground will start shaking. Another boss fight!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Hilgigars
    HP: 8000
    Steal: Mythril Fork, Phoenix Down
    Party: Zidane (23), Dagger (23), Vivi (23), Eiko (23)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    This is a very easy fight if you are at the recommended levels. Hilgigars' is
    very easy because your party is a lot more advanced then him; Zidane will take
    on someone with 8000 HP ALONE just a little later in this game. Hilgigars' is
    lucky enough to have four attacks. First off, he has Knock Down. This is
    basically a physical attack; Hilgigars hits one person for around 400 damage.
    Dagger or Eiko can easily heal this will Cura, and you should have Auto-Potion
    equipped. So, this can be completely countered with healing. Second off, he has
    Hishop. This is an attack where he jumps up in the air and falls on someone. It
    might sound painful, but it only does around 400 damage, also. Again, it can be
    easily countered with Dagger/Eiko or Auto-Potion. Third off, he has Earthquake.
    This is the most powerful attack he has. It will do around 300 damage to all
    party members. Luckily, everyone should have Auto-Potion equipped, so it will
    effectively be countered on its own. Heal whoever gets hit by a single attack on
    the following turn. Finally, he has Curaga. This may not seem like an attack,
    but Hilgigars' does have a tendency of abusing Curage. It heals 2250 damage,
    which is really good. It's 1/4 of his HP. He wastes a turn to use this, so you
    should inflict just as much or more damage with his wasted turn. Okay, let's go
    to character duties. Zidane should not be a thief here, so don't have him steal.
    Neither are worth it, you can buy both at your local store. So, he should be
    attacking. He should be doing around 1200 damage each hit. This is pretty good.
    Next, we have young Vivi. His role is to cast Bio repeatedly. This should do
    around 1400 damage each time. Hilgigars' has pretty low HP for your level. If
    you weren't anywhere near the recommended level, then I would suggest you have
    Vivi cast Slow first. Dagger should heal as necessary (see above) and use Ramuh.
    Again, if you are at a lot lower level you can have her cast Silence. This will
    make this battle really easy, as it takes away Earthquake from Hilgigars. Please
    note that you cannot blind him, he has a guard to that. Eiko should be right
    next to Dagger in this battle. I mean this in more ways then one. Eiko should
    heal with Dagger, and use Fenrir. Also have her Silence if you want to. This
    battle is very easy; Even if you are at an extremely low level you can win. It's
    just so... easy.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the pushover is defeated Eiko will say that Hilgigars shows up from time
    to time; She just runs away. She tells us that what we thought was called the
    Sanctuary is really called the Iifa Tree. Then the party forms up and we have
    control of Zidane again. Now, you don't have to collect the Yellow Stone and the
    Green Stone. You can just leave this area right now. However, you will be
    missing out on a somewhat useful item that is called a Moonstone.
    
    So, you want it, eh? Good. Get the Yellow Stone out of the Statue a little north
    of you. Then, go right to another screen. In this screen, you will be met with a
    fork. You can take the high one north to continue further with the game, or stay
    here and get the Moonstone. If you want the latter, take the southern tree. Get
    the Ether in the chest, and the Green Stone in the Statue.  Now, backtrack all
    the way back to the two moogles. If you need directions: Right from this screen,
    right to the next, right and down the ladder. Now, take the right path at the
    moogles. You will find yourself at another statue. Only this one will allow you
    to put stones inside it. Put the four stones in and a moonstone will appear.
    Then, go all the way back to the fork. Take the upper tree this time.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Adjust your screen so that your camera is facing Zidane's back. You will see
    ruins in front of you. This is where Eiko lives. It's called Madain Sari. Before
    you enter their are a couple of things you can do here. First, you will probably
    want to go to the forest next to Madain Sari. You will find a Yeti there that
    will want two ore. Give them to him, and he will give you 20 AP! This is great,
    because are new character really needs it. Remember to be equipped properly with
    abilities you want before you do this. You also might encounter the Ragtime
    Mouse. See the Side Quest section for details on that. Afterwards, go in the
    ruins (Eiko's home) right next to the forest.

    When you enter, Zidane will comment on Eiko's "home" being a ruin. Then we find
    out that it is Madain Sari, Village of the Summoners. After this, tons of
    moogles will come out a welcome Eiko home. Eiko starts to get worried about Mog,
    but Mog finally shows up. He escaped the wrath of Quina... that's something that
    Mog will be storytelling for years. Everyone follows Eiko into another area.
    Then Eiko orders all the moogles to do stuff. However, she let's Mog stay in her
    dress. Eiko should just be lucky Quina isn't around, or s/he would be rambling
    through her shirt. Then Eiko will sit Zidane down and ask him 101 questions.
    
    After this, which is paraphrased so we don't die of boredom, Dagger looks
    annoyed and jealous at the same time. Zidane confronts her about this, and Eiko
    asks if Dagger and Zidane are more then friends. Zidane replies with "We're a
    team." I can picture it now... Zidane (Father), Dagger (Mother), Vivi (Son), and
    Quina (Chef). Afterwards, Mocha runs over and says that everything is clean.
    Then Eiko runs off, telling the team that she will want everyone to eat at
    dinner later.
    
    After this, we have an ATE of Vivi contemplating life in general. I wish Zidane
    would tell Vivi that no one knows the answer to these questions, but alas, we
    have to have unanswered questions in the game. You now have control of Zidane
    again. Go over to the fountain in this screen. Walk over to the back of it until
    a field icon pops up. You will get Libra, another Stellazio! Check right behind
    Dagger too not only sees Zidane check her out, but receive a tent.
    
    Anyway, go southwest to the next screen. Zidane will talk to Vivi for a couple
    seconds, and then we have another ATE. It is of Dagger thinking to herself, and
    it's pretty informative. After this, try to go right of here into the house. A
    moogle will block you from entering, and then we will have an ATE of Eiko's
    Feelings about Zidane. Then Eiko will force all the moogles to help her make the
    meal. Then, we see Eiko talk about what delicious food she is going to make.
    
    You will now get the option of choosing which moogle to do what. There is no
    choice here that will net you anything good, so just do whatever you want here.
    I usual pick the biggest moogle to fish, and go down after that. It doesn't
    matter what you do. After this, choose start cooking and everything will fly
    over to their assigned jobs. Eiko will talk about her Grandpa for a couple
    lines, and then we will be back to Zidane.
    
    Now, go back to the fountain area in Zidane's previous screen. Then, take the
    path to northern area. Talk to Moco the moogle, and he will not allow you
    entrance into the following area. Then we will meet up with are Chef, Quina.
    S/he will jump off some rocks with a splat and tell Zidane about the sand not
    being good. Then s/he will compliment the water for being clean and jump down
    into the river.
    
    Backtrack to where Vivi was. Talk to the moogle and he will say that dinner is
    almost ready, and then he will give you a tour of the Eidolon Wall. Follow him
    to the fountain area, then view the ATE. She will then ask herself how much
    water to fetch. Zidane, Vivi, Dagger, Eiko, and the six moogles will be eating
    today. That is ten people. However, she doesn't know that Quina will be stopping
    by shortly. So decide to cook for 11 people. Then she will ask you if she should
    put the oglop that she found into the stew. Choose yes if you want to see a
    funny scene, no if you don't. It doesn't matter; you won't get a reward either
    way. After, Eiko will start to sing to the stew like a witch. Then the fishing
    moogle will say that he's got a big fish on the line. You will then be faced
    with another two options. Choose to go help the moogle catch the fish, and Quina
    will jump out of the water!
    
    Back to Zidane, go north from the fountain area to the pathway to the Eidolon
    Wall. Run up to the two moogles and one will run off. Morrison will explain what
    happened, then Zidane will decide to go get Dagger. Run back to the fountain
    area, and take the southeast path this time. Run down the path, and talk to
    Dagger. She will agree to see the Eidolon Wall. Now backtrack to the wall and
    the moogle will give you a tour.
    
    The moogle will tell you a little about the Eidolon Wall. Then Dagger will
    remember some of the Eidolons. Zidane will comfort her, but it's to no
    availability. You can talk to the moogle again to learn more about the Eidolon
    Wall, but otherwise get out of this area via the south entrance. View the ATE on
    Eiko's Kitchen. Eiko will identify Quina as Kuja, but Quina will clear things up
    in s/he's own way. Now, ask Quina for advice and he will look at the meal. The
    water is good; it's for 11 people. Quina then gives you a lesson in life, to
    always cook more then you need. You never know when Quina might pop up,
    especially with Zidane around, right?
    
    Quina will inform Eiko that the heat is only good enough for 9 people. Of
    course, Quina knows a lot about heat as s/he has been cooking frogs all s/he's
    life. Quina will explain that there is not enough heat. I think Quina knows that
    if we only have to cook for 9 people, s/he's getting the axe first. It then pops
    into Quina's mind to ask Vivi, a Black Mage who has done Fire and Fira
    throughout the whole game, to heat up the stew accordingly. Then we go back to
    Zidane.
    
    Head back over to Eiko's Kitchen. A moogle will yell Kupo twenty times and let
    Zidane in. Zidane will then say that the food looks good! Eiko will respond with
    saying that Quina and Vivi helped her. Zidane is baffled by how Quina did not
    eat all the food in the process of making it. This is a step further for Quina!
    Then Zidane will start to eat, and we will see everyone feasting on the food.
    Eiko will talk a little about her being the last summoner. She will then proceed
    to plagiarize Lord Avon's 'Upon a Shooting Star" but Dagger will know and tell
    everyone. Then Zidane will wonder how Eiko, who has probably been isolated
    between Conde Petie and Madain Sari for her whole life, would know about a play
    in the Mist Continent. If you decided to put Oglop in, Vivi will announce to
    everyone that it is in the stew. Then we will be done eating.
    
    Afterwards, Eiko and Zidane will talk for just a little bit. Eiko comments on
    how rude Zidane is then barks an order to bring a pot into the Kitchen. Before
    you do this, however, you will want to do a couple things first. Get both chests
    behind the table in this room. Now you can go into Eiko's stove room and talk to
    Quina. S/he will tell the moogle to keep catching fish and has made a great
    discovery; Fish here are different from the ones in the mist continent! Then,
    get the pot off the table and go back into Eiko's stove room.
    
    Zidane and Eiko will talk about the Iifa Tree a little. Zidane will want Eiko to
    break the seal on the Iifa Tree, but Eiko will refuse. Talk to her twice again
    and she won't budge. Now, go back to the room where everyone ate. Try to leave
    the room, and a moogle will come in. Choose to sleep. In the middle of the
    night, Zidane walks outside to see Vivi thinking. They talk for a little bit,
    and Eiko overhears their conversation from the Kitchen. Zidane says some heroic
    stuff, and Eiko agrees with herself that Zidane is the right man for her. Then
    Zidane and Vivi do another perverted thing in this game. They "go" under the
    stars together. Eiko runs over to see what they are doing...
    
    The next morning, everyone besides Eiko and the moogles gathers around the
    entrance. Dagger and Zidane talk a little about Eiko being "lonely," then Eiko
    and her moogle friends come out. Eiko says that she will break the seal for you.
    Dagger asks why Zidane is being so nice to everyone, and we should know why.
    Then everyone leaves to the world map. Now, go directly back a couple steps to
    Madain Sari. If you talk to the moogle out front, you can buy equipment and
    items from him. Stock up accordingly with equipment. For items, buy around 25
    Softs and 35 Phoenix Downs. You will need these to kill enemies at the Iifa
    Tree. Then, go back to the world map.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    On the World Map, go south back to Conde Petie Mountain Path. Enter.
    
    Conde Petie Mountain Path
    -------------------------
    
    Back at the Mountain Path, get the Moonstone if you haven't already. Afterwards,
    go back to the exit to the World Map that leads to Madain Sari. Go down the tree
    two screens and you will be at where you fought the boss of this area last time.
    Take the northern path to the World Map (that leads to the Iifa Tree).
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Despite what you think you can actually do something on this world map! Walk up
    to the Iifa tree west. Before you enter, fight a Nymph. He will want 3 ore this
    time, but he gives a whopping 30 AP for it. This should be heaven on earth for
    everyone in the party, especially Eiko! Just remember to equip per what
    abilities you want! Afterwards, enter the Iifa Tree!

                                   4.13 -  Iifa Tree
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Enemies:
    --------
    Stroper (2000 HP)
    Zombie (1000 HP)
    Dracozombie (2500 HP)
    Soulcage (Boss)
    
    Once you enter, Zidane will try to head further into the Mist Tree. An invisible
    wall will shock him! This must be the seal that Eiko was talking about. Now you
    have three options, you can poke again, body slam it, or ask Eiko. I choose Body
    Slam just for fun. It doesn't do any damage to you. Anyway, it will end with
    Zidane asking Eiko. She will say some voodoo magic and the seal will be broken.
    What she said was actually just to impress Zidane, however.
    
    Now, let's talk about these enemies! They may be deceiving because of the
    plethora of HP they have, but they are all PUSHOVERS! You want to know why?
    Well, Zombies can be taken out in one hit if you inflict a Phoenix Down on them.
    Now you know why I told you to buy 35! These enemies are really easy if you
    merely use a Phoenix Down on them. It's the exact same thing for the
    Dracozombie, throw a Phoenix Down and in the next turn, no matter who attacks
    him, he will die. Stropers are the exact same, but you don't have to give them a
    love tap in the following turn. If you throw a Soft at them, they will become to
    soft to live and die automatically. Overall, all the enemies here are a piece of
    cake!
    
    Follow the branches to the insides of the Iifa Tree. This should be very
    straightforward, as you cannot go anywhere but on the branches. You will have a
    pretty low random battle rate here, so don't fret if it seems like a long ways
    to the insides. Just follow the branches! You will exclusively fight Zombies and
    Strophers here. Throw Softs and Phoenix Downs at will! You simply cannot lose in
    these paths!
    
    Once you are physically inside the Iifa Tree, you should see a moogle to the
    left of you. Save here. Then go down the tree roots. In the following screen,
    the team will talk a little. Then you will have the option of poking, jumping
    on, or asking Eiko about the thing in the middle. This is Eiko's first time in
    the tree, so she wouldn't know. Poking it is worthless. So have Zidane jump on
    it. It will go down like an elevator. Then everyone will decide to go down to
    another part of the Iifa Tree.
    
    In the next screen, you will be on a path going down to the inner roots. There
    are some paths leading off where you can get equipment. You can collect an
    Ether, Hi-Potion, Remedy, and a Lamia's Flute if you go down being mindful of
    the paths leading off, and the holes. After you get these items, go down the
    spiral roots and you will be closer to the Iifa Tree's core.
    
    Following the last root path, Zidane will comment on how bright it is at the
    bottom of the Iifa Tree. Everyone will agree to try to get to the bottom. Eiko
    will then tell Zidane that she found something. When everyone gets on, the
    elevator will respond and bring them closer to the bottom. The screen will
    change to everyone on the green leaf. They will for a little bit, and Mog will
    tell them that there is a whole lot of life down at the bottom. Afterwards, you
    will fight some Zombies. Terminate them easily with Phoenix Downs.
    
    Now, the team will get to talk more about the mist. Then everyone will notice
    Vivi on the other side of the leaf, very quiet. Go over and talk to him. Vivi
    will tell you what he thinks about the Iifa Tree, and then we face a
    Dracozombie. Throw a Phoenix Down and give him a love tap, as usual. After the
    battle, everyone will nod when Zidane states that they will find out what is at
    the bottom.
    
    Eiko will run around like the little girl she is. Vivi goes to watch over her.
    Zidane and Dagger talk a bit about life being at the bottom. Then, you have
    control of Zidane again. Run down the stairs to the right as Eiko and Vivi did.
    At the bottom if you look a little north of the stairs you will see part of a
    chest barely visible. Get the Elixir in it. Now, walk over to Eiko and Vivi.
    Talk to Eiko and agree to look at the light with her.
    
    Zidane then realizes what he is putting Dagger through. All the lame things that
    Eiko is doing must be really getting to Dagger. Now, go left of Dagger and you
    will see a brown... thing. Press X on the field icon and Zidane will talk a
    little bit to himself. Then, Eiko will shout for Zidane and he will run over.
    She will say that Mog senses that something is coming from above! Zidane yells
    for Dagger but she trips. Now you have control of Zidane again. Before you go up
    to get her, go north of Eiko and around the trunk. Go behind it and you will see
    the field icon. Get the Brigandine and equip it immediately. It has ability up
    for Zidane! Finally!
    
    Now, run back up the stairs and try to aid Dagger. Dagger will get up, and
    everyone will run to where something from above just fell. The team will talk to
    the tree-looking boss for a little bit. We will find out that the mist is merely
    put to the other continents here; it's not made here. Then the tree proceeds to
    talking about Kuja using the mist to make Black Mages, and calls Vivi a puppet.
    You know this won't be well with Zidane around! Then we fight the tree. Don't
    worry, he can't really predict when he dies.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Soulcage
    HP: 10000 // 1
    Steal: Brigandine, Oak Staff
    Party: Zidane (26), Vivi (26), Dagger (25), Eiko (25)
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    This is the easiest boss fight in disc two by far. Soulcage has some pretty mean
    attacks, but he won't even get to use them! Why? Well, Soulcage is undead! This
    means that if you throw a Phoenix Down or cast Life on him, all he will need is
    one hit to die! This makes this fight EXTREMELY easy! Merely have someone throw
    a Phoenix Down, and the next character physically attack Soulcage. Even if you
    do 2 damage, Soulcage will fall! There is no need to steal any of his items; you
    can get them at the next shop. So, finish him off without any mercy!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, everyone will leave the Iifa Tree in a hurry. Then we will see
    a FMV of the mist disappearing everywhere, including the former mist continent!
    After this, Vivi will feel happy and sad at the same time. On the one hand Kuja
    cannot make any Black Mages for war. On the other, no one can create any more
    Black Mages! Eiko will try to cheer him up. Then a moogle will run over to the
    team and tell Eiko some startling news. It seems that some stole Eiko's
    "precious" back at Madain Sari! Everyone agrees to going back.

    Enemies:
    --------
    Scarlet Hair (Boss)
    
    Upon entering Eiko will shout for her moogles. They will come in a single file
    line and Eiko talks to them for just a little bit. Then they run somewhere. You
    will now have control of Zidane again. Follow them to Eiko's Kitchen. All the
    moogles will be around what looks like a pantry. You can talk to them to find
    out various bits of information. This information includes a "woman [hag] with a
    big axe." I think you know who that is! Go inside the storage shed.
    
    You will find Eiko who tells you that her precious was stolen. She is about to
    cry, but because Zidane is here, she holds back tears. Then she runs off the
    Eidolon Wall to pray. We then hear a scream, and it seems Lani is back. This
    time, however, she has taken Eiko hostage! Get the visible chest for a Survivial
    Vest. Check south of that and take the Phoenix Down on the shelf. Then go over
    to the Eidolon Wall. You know where that is, it's where you took the tour!
    
    Once you get over there, all the moogles are going bonkers. You can talk to them
    to hear them say some nasty things about you. Otherwise, talk to the moogle next
    to the doorway inside the Eidolon Wall and have him heal you. Now it's time to
    take a look inside! You will see Lani holding Eiko by a horn in her back.
    Afterwards, two moogles will give you an Elixir and Exploda. Not bad. Anyway,
    ask about Mog this time. Zidane will talk to him, but he is just to damn scared
    to help. Before you continue, EQUIP A POWER BELT AND THE COUNTER ABILITY!
    
    Now choose "Go save her" and Zidane will march on in. We will find out that Lani
    has put Eiko to sleep with sleeping weed. Isn't that familiar? I am praising
    Lani right now; I couldn't stand one more word out of her annoying mouth. She
    demands the pendant, and just as Zidane is about to do something heroic she asks
    Vivi to give her the pendant. Zidane gives him the pendant, and he hands it over
    to Lani. Just as Lani is about to leave someone with scarlet hair jumps out of
    the sky and knocks Eiko out of Lani's hands. Lani will yell at Scarlet Hair, and
    Dagger will recognize him as the man with all the wanted posters in Treno!
    Scarlet Hair says that he wants to make things fair, and Lani leaves without the
    Jewel after he threatens to beat the hagginess out of her. Then, Scarlet Hair
    challenges Zidane to a duel. He accepts, trying to impress Dagger with
    everything he has.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Scarlet Hair
    HP: 9000
    Steal: Poison Knuckles, Ether
    Party: Zidane (26)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Despite what some people say, Scarlet Hair is an absolute PUSHOVER if you fight
    him correctly. See, Scarlet Hair is extremely fast and will move all over the
    place. When he moves, your attacks on him will be severely weakened. However, he
    can't attack you when he moves, either. So it's actually more beneficial for you
    because while he jumping around you can throw a Hi-Potion on yourself. When he
    says, "Here I go!" he will go in and attack you. This is your cue to attack him
    now. Take 2-3 hacks at him, then he will move around again. Do not attack him
    while he is moving because one, the damage will be weakened, and two, he will
    counterattack. I highly advise that you have Auto-Potion and Counter equipped,
    it will make this fight a lot easier. See, Scarlet Hair only moves and attacks,
    he does not do any throw, Flairs, heals, or anything. All he does is move and
    attack. You know that you can find a strategy when we have a one-minded opponent
    such as him. The big secret strategy is counterattack! This will counter nearly
    every time he attacks you, giving you twice as many attacks. Auto-Potion with
    Hi-Potions will make this battle pathetically easy, even if he hits you for a
    couple hundred damage you will just cure it back. Now, the first time I fought
    him I had the bright idea to use "The Ogre." Why? Well, with Soul Blade and The
    Ogre's Darkness status effect, I thought I could blind him and it would be even
    easier. This, however, will not work as he is guarded to darkness. So don't even
    try it. So, what's your plan of attack now that I have rambled on about him?
    Simple. When he moves around, heal/defend/wait. He wastes turns while he moves
    around, but since he is so fast his next turn will come momentarily. When he
    says, "Here I go!" he will go in and attack you. He should attack you 2-3 times
    before he moves around again. This is your attacking period, also. Just remember
    that, since both of you have counter, you should get some nasty counterattacks.
    Auto-Potion with Hi-Potion will make this fight insanely easy.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, it seems as though the tables have turned. You are now that
    unstoppable Beatrix that leaves her enemies to rot! Well, not exactly. Zidane
    asks for what he stole, and he obediently gives it back. Scarlet Hair continues
    to ask Zidane to kill him, but it's to no availability. Finally, Scarlet Hair
    jumps twice out of the Eidolon Wall. Zidane yawns, trying to impress Dagger
    again.
    
    Eiko will run off, and Vivi will follow him. Then Zidane and Dagger form up. Run
    back over to Eiko's Dining Room, right next to her Kitchen. Rest at the moogle
    then walk over to Eiko's "Storage Shed" where the Jewel in the treasure chest
    was. After some silence, Eiko will ask you if it is okay for her to go with the
    team. She says this because her grandpa said she couldn't leave until she was
    sixteen. It doesn't matter which option you choose, I resetted and chose both
    just for fun. After, Zidane will tell Vivi how he feels about this. Vivi will
    tell Eiko her own advise, and she decides to join. I don't know... maybe that
    Vivi likes her?
    
    Anyway, you will get the Memory Earrings after this. Then Mog will come in and
    Eiko will yell at Mog some more. They will talk a little bit, and then they will
    talk about the ribbons they gave each other. They will both wear them when they
    are both sophisticated ladies. I... didn't know Mog was a girl. I'm sure you
    feel exactly what Zidane thinks about Mog. Isn't that a... boys name?
    
    Anyway, it doesn't matter much. Zidane will start to wonder where Dagger went.
    Walk outside the Kitchen, and just as you are going up the stairs you will see a
    field icon. Press X, and we will start to hear Dagger sing. This is the only
    voice in the entire game that we hear. Zidane will see Dagger below, then he
    will go down to the docks.
    
    Zidane will start hitting on Dagger, but then he will get serious. They will
    talk a little bit about what has happened. Dagger will say that everyone has
    done so many things for them; Zidane, Vivi, Eiko, Quina, Steiner, Freya, and
    even Beatrix, whom we thought was our enemy. Zidane will comfort her, and then
    Dagger will accidentally say a line from Ispen's play. Zidane will then say a
    story about Ispen. If you noticed, we are going to go to Ispen's Castle a little
    later in the game, so listen closely. Afterwards, the boat starts to drift off.
    Dagger sees the Eidolon Wall again, but it triggers a flashback this time
    because they are out on the water. She remembers an eye, and a village on fire.
    Then Dagger passes out.
    
    Next, we are back at Eiko's Dining Room. Eiko, Dagger, Mog, and Zidane are
    there. Dagger will realize that she must have been born here. She infers this
    with some evidence. It is of the only memory of her childhood she knows. It is
    the first FMV in the game. It is true. Dagger talks a little more about the
    boat, then we are at the Eidolon Wall. Dagger will say that she doesn't know how
    she became a princess, but Doctor Tot might have the answer. She continues to
    talk about her mother, who became someone else, and her biological mother, who
    died in her first memory. Then we see a part of the actual Eidolon Wall. Eiko
    makes Dagger feel welcome and tells her that she is finally home. Dagger becomes
    relieved. Then, Eiko decides that she really isn't alone anymore. She can hit on
    Zidane and talk to Dagger; I wouldn't call that alone! Then the two go to pray.
    
    We are now back at the entrance. Vivi does not know that Eiko is coming with the
    team, but he finds out. Then Eiko calls for all the moogles and they all come.
    Morrison tells Eiko some wise words. After, Mog goes back into Eiko's shirt. The
    moogles then fly away, looking scared. Scarlet Hair comes back. Scarlet Hair
    says that Zidane's actions yesterday were incomprehensible to him. Zidane
    replies that if he really doesn't understand, he should come with the team.
    
    Of course everyone protests. Zidane says the Star Wars words that are in almost
    every game: "You look pretty strong, we could use you in a fight." We then get
    to name him. Name him whatever you like, but I will refer to him as "Amarant",
    his default name. We now have are last party member, we won't pick up any more
    new ones throughout the entire game. You now get to choose your party members. I
    highly advise that you choose Zidane, Vivi, Eiko, and Amarant. Whatever you do
    don't pick Dagger, she will be a lose cannon later in the game.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Go back to Madain Sari if you need supplies. Get Amarant the Poison Knuckles and
    remember to stock up again on Softs and Phoenix Downs, we are returning to the
    Iifa Tree! After you are done getting supplies, go back to Conde Petie Mountain
    Pass.
    
    Conde Petie Mountain Pass
    -------------------------
    
    You should know where to go; we are going back to the Iifa Tree! Right through
    two screens. Then up the path to another world map.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    See that big tree over there? I thought you did. Walk over to it and enter! But
    before we do, everyone in the party must be over the level 25. Why, you might
    ask? Well, if your party members are at 25 then the Zombies that do Roulette
    will kill any party member that's level is divisible by 5. This includes 25, of
    course! If your party members are below 25, then I suggest you at least level up
    a little on the World Map or at the Iifa Tree if you have a strong supply of
    Softs and Phoenix Downs.

    Enemies:
    --------
    Zombie
    Dracozombie
    Mistodon
    Stropher
    
    Upon entering Zidane will comment on the Iifa Tree still having a little mist.
    He says that Kuja must not be here yet. Since Amarant wasn't with us at the
    time, he doesn't know what they are talking about. Eiko tells him they beat the
    brains out of the mist breather. Amarant is amazed by this feat; they must be
    very powerful. Then we see Kuja on his silver dragon overhead. Kuja will say
    that he is going to watch events unfold from the trunk of the great Iifa Tree. I
    think you know where you have to go...
    
    Now you will be able to pick your party members again. I highly advise that you
    pick Zidane, Amarant, Vivi, and Eiko. This is in the order of importance, if you
    want Dagger in the group, replace her with Eiko. I must warn you, though, that
    throughout disc three Dagger will have some sort of disability that will enable
    her to trip up sometimes, and not attack. So just keep Eiko, all right?
    
    Now that you have control of Zidane, it's time to confront Kuja. First, you have
    to go through most of the tree root paths that you did last time when you were
    going in. Just follow the paths, you should know how to kill the enemies. If you
    don't then let me sum it up for you. Zombies, Dracozombies, and Mistodons get a
    Phoenix Down and "Love Tap" to make them eat it. Strophers, of course, just need
    one Soft to be history. These are the only enemies that you will face here; they
    are no problem at all. If you are down a couple levels then just walk aimlessly
    around the first screen and attack these monsters. They will go down in 2 hits
    maximum and give good experience and ability points.
    
    Back to the show. Follow the tree roots as you did last time. You might notice
    that the random fight rate is up. I guess this is Squaresoft's way of trying to
    make it harder. Sadly, these enemies will go down quick if we fight them every 5
    steps or 25 steps.
    
    After you go through 4-5 areas, the team will be running down a root. Zidane
    will say that the only way to get to Kuja is to climb up an area. Amarant will
    walk right over Dagger, Eiko, and Vivi to Zidane. He will ask himself "How did
    this wimp beat me?" Then he will give Zidane a pretty good quote. After this,
    they will argue a little more. I would just like to comment how Amarant is
    treating Eiko. This should probably be how Zidane would be treating her if
    Dagger weren't here. He has to impress her. Anyway, Amarant will take Vivi and
    Eiko in each arm and jump up. Zidane will have Dagger hop onto his back and they
    will go up. I think Amarant and Zidane planed it to be this way...
    
    Back to Kuja, he proceeds to giving us another quote. It was quote day at Square
    when they made the Dialogue, I guess. He says that he will "warm up on them
    until the elephant-lady comes." I wonder what that means? We will then go back
    to Zidane. You can choose again party members. You already know my suggestions,
    Dagger stays out. Then everyone will say a quote to why they hate Kuja, and they
    will jump over closer to him.
    
    The team will have a small revelation with Kuja. They will talk about Black
    Mages, and then about Brahne. Finally, Brahne will come in the boats. We will
    have a small FMV of all the boats. Then we will go to Brahne's deck. She will
    order all the Black Mages to focus their power into a single spell. The we go
    back to Kuja. He will tell them that they are just the opening number. Then he
    will sick two Mistodons on you. They are very easy to defeat. Throw a Phoenix,
    and then hit them with any attack. They will fall in one hit!
    
    After the fight, Kuja will be gone and the five party members will be on the
    ground. Amarant will talk a little about real strategy, but no one is smart
    enough to listen to him. Kuja will be on his dragon and comment on Brahne's
    stupidity. Then he will descend to give her a clear target. Back to the party,
    Dagger will say that she has to save her mother. Then Dagger will ask where an
    Eidolon is. Eiko will point to one and Andrea will run over to it. But...
    couldn't she just call Ramuh? He could do some serious "pwnage" on Kuja if his
    Thunder Bolt hits. Some things just never change...
    
    Before the group has a chance to follow Dagger, we will face another Mistodon.
    Dispose of it anyway you like. Wreak havoc with Zidane/Amarant or throw a
    Phoenix Down at it. Afterwards, everyone besides Amarant will decide to go after
    Dagger. Before you do, look behind the tree to the north and save at the moogle.
    Then go down the tree roots. As you go down, Mistodon will constantly be coming
    up from behind you and attacking you. These are no problem. Just go down this
    oddly large root until you come to the next area.
    
    In the next screen, Dagger will ask the Eidolon to help her and you will receive
    the Aquamarine. She will find out that it holds Leviathan. It is futile to try
    to save her Mom with this Eidolon. She will tell this to Eiko. Then we will go
    back to Brahne's ships. In the second one, it looks like one of the Black Mages
    has Tranced. In Brahne's ship, she will call the great eidolon Bahamut. We will
    see a wonderful ATE of Bahamut going over to Kuja. Bahamut will do a killer
    fireball attack on Kuja, but he will stealthy get away with a little blood on
    his forehead.
    
    Amarant will comment on the awesome power of summoning and wonder if Zidane is
    after Eiko and Dagger's power. Dagger will cheer; she thinks the battle has won
    before it even started. Eiko will shake her head; Mog senses something awful
    about to happen. We go back to Kuja who talks a little about everything that has
    happened thus far. He will speak a little about Brahne going to hell. Then, he
    will say that in his final act he will defeat his nemesis. I do not know whom
    the heck that is.
    
    Another FMV will arrive. This one is very good. Kuja seems to have summoned an
    eye, but this eye looks familiar. Yes, this is the eye that was in the ruins in
    Dagger's memory! The eye will corrupt everyone in its radius. The Black Mages
    will fall but the humans are unharmed besides a screeching noise. Bahamut then
    flies over to Brahne's ship. He flares up a fireball and fires at Brahne's ship!
    Then he proceeds to destroying all of Brahne's ships! What?
    
    Then we will see some dialogue. Vivi is speaking. He will tell us that he should
    be happy that Brahne died. However, when we found Brahne almost dead next to her
    escape pod, and Dagger crying, he didn't know what to feel. It made him feel...
    happy and sad and terrified and angry and hatred all at the same time. Brahne
    will barely be able to talk to Dagger. She will talk about her greed, and how
    she is now free of it. Then she will say that Dagger will be a better Queen
    and... stops. Vivi will continue to sadly summarize the event. They got on the
    Queen's escape pod and, with Queen Brahne, went home to Alexandria.
    
    Now, if we didn't have enough sadness already, we go to Queen Brahne's
    tombstone. Dagger will be crowned Queen with Steiner and Beatrix at her side.
    But that's a little later in disc three. Currently, Toot-- err... Top-- err...
    Ted-- err... TOT! Yes, Doctor Tot will give Dagger some roses that the
    townspeople offered for Brahne's grave. Dagger will put them on the grave and
    everyone will salute Brahne. Then Dagger will say that she will become a great
    Queen, and walk away. Afterwards, we will see a FMV of the gorgeous Alexandria.
    I'm sure that Zidane would say "Even more Gorgeous, we see Dagger." She will
    look at Alexandria with sadness. Then the screen will fade and disc two will
    end. We shall end with lines of Kuja summing up what has happened thus far:
    
    "The weak lose their freedom to the strong.
     Such is the way of the strong.
     And it is the providence of nature that only
     the strong survive.

    Disc Three begins with the Dagger, Doctor Tot, Beatrix, and Steiner riding to
    Alexandria Castle. Beatrix will comment that Dagger won't be a "Princess" for
    much longer. Dagger will hesitate, but Doctor Tot will reinforce to her that
    everyone will be on her side when she is crowned. Then they will walk inside the
    castle and the screen with fade to black.
    
    Then we will go to Alexandria Bar. Everyone in Tantalus will be there, besides
    Baku and of course the 'enero's. Zidane looks like he just got dumped by the
    hottest chick on the planet. Maybe he did? Ruby will try to cheer him up, but of
    course it's to no avail. I think he had a hangover or something. Anyway,
    everyone besides Zidane decides to leave to watch one of Ruby's plays. As they
    are leaving, Blank bumps into Vivi. They get to talking for a little bit. It
    seems Steiner, Beatrix, and Freya got overran after we left. Blank and Marcus
    had to carry them out on their backs, he said.
    
    Afterwards, Blank and Marcus know that if they are late for Ruby's show she will
    be mad. So they leave, and we have control of Vivi. Just like old times, eh?
    Back in Alexandria with only Vivi. You can do a lot of things this time around,
    though. Start by going left at the bar entrance. Then follow the road to the
    townsquare. This is where the equipment shop and ticket booth are. Go to the
    southwest corner. Then, go down the alley. Ignore Blank and Marcus for now.
    
    In the next screen, go to the steeple. You will see Stiltzkin and Kupo here. Buy
    the Elixir, Hi-Potion, and Phoenix Pinion from Stilzkin. Then, give the letter
    to Kupo and save your game. Afterwards, go up the ladder and pull the rope. Two
    cards will come down that are called Shiva and Ramuh. These are very good cards.
    If you don't get good arrows on them, then reset and pull the rope again. You
    will need these cards in Treno, so keep trying until you get some good arrows.
    You get different arrows every time, so don't worry about that. I actually had
    to reset quite a few times before I got what I wanted. Remember holding all of
    these buttons at the same time will give you a "soft" reset: R1, R2, L1, L2,
    Start, and Select. What's good and what's bad? See the Tetra Master (Card Game)
    mini-section in the Side Quest section for details.
    
    Now that you have the cards, walk around Alexandria talking to people. You will
    see their thoughts on Dagger being crowned Queen at such a young age. This will
    also give you a chance to view all the ATEs Alexandria has to offer at this
    time. You should be familiar with Alexandria already; we spent a small amount of
    time here in the beginning of the game. When you are ready, go to the
    townsquare. Go through the northeastern door. You might notice this as the
    weapon/synthesis shop that you couldn't get anything at in the beginning of the
    game. Well, you can now!
    
    This is an excellent shop to buy/synthesis stuff. Noteworthy, you can get
    Zidane's Angel Bless at the Synthesis shop. Please please please, GET THIS! It
    has the wonderful skill called Thievery. It is also is the best dagger that
    Zidane can get in the game at this point. You will also want to buy add-ons that
    you don't have and equipment. Soon the eight characters will all be in the same
    team so we don't have to worry about getting 8 of every add-on (because the game
    used to switch back and forth between groups). The Synthesis shop is especially
    great; it has a ton of add-on's that are useful. Look at my ability section to
    find out which add on gives which ability. Then, go over to the equipment shop
    and buy all the new and interesting stuff you can. You can play the Nero Game if
    you talk to one of the 'enero's. Refer to the Side Quests section for more
    details.
    
    When you are done shopping, the other mini-game that you can do here is
    Hippaul's Racing Game. You will have the race him until you want to stop, or
    until he gets to level 100. See the Side Quest section for more details. It is
    to the left of the bar entrance. Anyway, that is all of the stuff you can do
    currently. Let us now move onward in the story.
    
    Go back to the Alley where Blank and Marcus were. You should remember this as
    the Alley before the steeple, and the area to the southwest in the townsquare.
    Try to walk inside the Mini-Theater and Blank will stop you. Agree to watching
    the play and walk downstairs. Ruby will yell at you a little, thinking you are
    Blank. Then Cinna walks in and identifies you as Vivi. I don't know where Vivi
    got his anger from, but all of a sudden he calls Cinna "uncle." It's suppose to
    be a joke because he looks old, but could it mean more then that? Zidane is
    Cinna's "brother", you know...
    
    Ruby will talk to Vivi a little more, and she will be excited that someone
    besides Tantalus will want to see her play. Vivi sits down at a seat; Blank and
    Marcus go inside finally. Blank will think that Vivi, as a distraction will
    cause Ruby not to see them surreptitiously sneak in. This is wrong, however.
    Poor Blank...
    
    We will then go back to Dagger in the castle. She will have a lot of things on
    her mind. Dagger will ask Steiner to find Zidane so she could talk to him, but
    Steiner of course makes up a reason for her not to see him. Doctor Tot will walk
    in with Beatrix. Then he gives you the Topal, Opal, and Amethyst stones. He
    starts to tell you about Brahne using the power of the stones for evil, but he
    quickly deviates from the subject. Steiner and Doctor Tot will leave and Beatrix
    will stay. Dagger will plea to see Zidane again. Mayhaps she thought it would
    work, because Beatrix is a little less strict then Steiner. But it doesn't, and
    the screen fades.
    
    In the next screen we see Eiko talk about Zidane a little. She thinks that if
    she gives Zidane a love letter that she will win his heart. Then Doctor Tot will
    come out of Dagger's room. He will talk a little about Dagger and walk down the
    stairs. Eiko will see him and basically ask him to write her a love letter. This
    is only after she completely insults him, however. Doctor Tot sees Eiko's horn
    and wonders for a little bit. Then we see Doctor Tot wonder some more. It seems
    he was the person that found Dagger ship wrecked! He talks about how Dagger
    looked exactly like Princess Garnet, but with one exception. She had a horn! The
    plot thickens!
    
    The Princess will be all dressed up. She has a nice dress on; I guess she
    finally gets out of that hideous dress that she had on since the beginning of
    the game! Anyway, Dagger will be concerned that Beatrix and Steiner won't act
    the same for her if they know she is not Brahne's real mother. She speaks her
    mind, but Beatrix reassures her that she already knows, and that she will act
    the same.
    
    Now we go back to Eiko and Doctor Tot again. She will grab the letter and leave.
    However, she will say that she is from Madain Sari before she leaves. This
    strikes interest in Tot. Now you have control of Eiko. Before you go, you can
    save your game in the previous room. Then, go back out to the corridor and go
    north to the big square room. Eiko will talk about giving her letter to Zidane,
    then Baku will bump into her and she will get hooked onto the stair rail this
    time. Aren't we... just going around in circles? Eiko will drop the letter and
    ask Baku to give it to Zidane. He agrees, and leaves.
    
    Baku will be at the docks and Steiner will come around. He is zealously checking
    around the castle for anything that moves. He talks to Baku for a little bit.
    The two get into an argument and Baku drops the letter! Then he boat comes and
    he hops on, happy to be rid of Steiner. Afterwards, Beatrix's music will start
    playing and she comes out to the docks. Apparently, she heard Steiner's yelling
    and came out to preserve the peace. She sees the letter and thinks that Steiner
    dropped it for her to pick up. Interesting...
    
    We go back to Zidane who got over his hangover. He starts talking about Dagger a
    little. He takes the lines from "I Want To Be Your Canary" and shouts about how
    he can't begin the day with her voice, her smile, her-- um... ahem. Ruby walks
    in and you can blatantly tell it's her because of her corny-western-type
    talking. Blank, Marcus, and Vivi's favorite Uncle will enter afterwards. They
    will try to get Zidane to at least talk to Dagger, but it's to no avail. As
    Zidane tries to leave, Baku bumps into him. Zidane pleas to enter Tantalus
    again, but Baku sidesteps with "our number one rule." Vivi walks in, and asks
    Zidane if they can go see Dagger. Tantalus leaves, and Zidane forms up with
    Vivi.
    
    Now that you have control of Zidane again, equip all the new stuff you got him.
    I don't care if you want to learn sacrifice or lucky seven, those skills suck.
    So, do yourself a favor and equip him with the Angel's Bless. I also highly
    suggest that you equip him with every new thing you got at the Alexandria shops.
    My recommendation is to give him a Black Belt; He can learn HP +20% with this.
    It is a very important skill to know. Then go outside the bar and an ATE will
    pop up.
    
    It seems that Baku doesn't even care he lost the letter. Oh well, its only Eiko.
    Anyway, go left from the bar entrance. Follow the road to the townsquare. Go
    around the ticket booth and north to the castle gates. They are finally open! In
    the next screen, Amarant and Freya stare at each other. Then both get into duel
    position and are about to tear their heads off. The guards try to stop them, but
    they're just guards. Finally, Zidane comes along and preserves the peace amongst
    the two of them. Zidane and Freya will talk about Kuja and Dagger becoming a
    Queen. Then Vivi, with the wide-eye innocence of a child, will tell Zidane that
    Dagger should want to see him. Amarant will tell Zidane that he wants to fight
    with him soon. I can't wait to beat him again, myself.
    
    Now the four of them will form up with Zidane. You might notice that Freya is
    around 10 levels behind you. She wasn't really great from the beginning, and we
    won't use her in this game, so don't sweat it. Equip Amarant accordingly, then
    take the boat to the castle. An Alexandrian Soldier will row you there; you have
    to love the slave status they have now.
    
    Anyway, go around the small fount and north to the big castle. Just as you are
    walking in you will see Steiner throw Eiko out in a hilarious scene. Eiko will
    then "cry on Zidane's shoulder" and say all the horribly true things that
    Steiner said to her. Then Amarant says "He's right" and it seems Steiner and
    Amarant, opposites as they may be, have formed somewhat of a "relationship."
    Freya will try to calm down Eiko and Steiner will shout some more at everyone.
    Then Vivi will command Steiner to show them to the Princess/Queen, and Steiner
    will agree.
    
    Garnet til Alexandros will walk out in her beautiful blue gown. She looks so
    much like Brahn- Oh, what the **** am I saying!? She looks nothing like
    Brahne... Dagger will speak for a little bit, and everyone will talk about how
    beautiful she looks. Zidane won't be able to talk to her for some strange
    reason, and Dagger will leave. Before she gets the chance, however, Eiko runs
    over to trade stones. They both trade two, and Vivi is astounded by the fact
    that Zidane didn't talk to Dagger. He will continue to say that he had a whole
    fake speech lined up, but it would have just been a lie.
    
    Eiko will be at the docks, and I think she finally got it through her thick
    skull that Zidane isn't interested in her in the least. She mourns a little
    more, and as she is about to leave hides because she thinks Zidane is coming.
    Then Blank and Marcus come. It seems that Blank got the love letter too! This
    letter is being abused by everyone... first Eiko, then Beatrix, and now Blank!
    This is just... getting to look better and better as time goes on. Blank will
    talk a little, then Marcus says someone's coming and they decide to hide. Blank
    drops the letter, however. Then Steiner trots over; you could hear him in his
    tin armor from a mile away. He is "tightening security" again. He sees the
    letter on the ground. He picks it up, and thinks it is for himself. Then Beatrix
    comes over from behind him. They are about to kiss when Baku comes along! Now
    everyone hates him for ruining potentially one of the best non-FMVs in the game!
    He totally ruined it...
    
    We go back to the bar. Freya, Vivi, and Amarant talk a little about where Zidane
    could be. As Vivi is going to leave to look for him, Eiko bumps into him. She
    isn't in a very good mood, and it seems she is going upstairs to cry. Then
    Doctor Tot comes in and asks for Eiko. Eiko leaps down, and the two get to
    talking a little. Doctor Tot wants to know more about Eiko; Eiko wants to go to
    Doctor Tot's house, located in Treno. Then Zidane walks in and with his "I'm
    coming with you" Star Wars line, he says that he wants to go to Treno for a card
    tournament. Then everyone decides to go to Treno, besides Dagger and Steiner of
    course.
    
    Gargan Roo
    ----------
    
    Just be lucky they go to the Gargant station for you. Doctor Tot talks a little
    about the mist, and then the Gargant comes. Then everyone goes onto the
    Gargant's trolley. How could THEY ALL FIT in this little trolley? Did they throw
    Zidane and Amarant on the sides, after throwing Eiko off completely? No one will
    ever know. Anyway, it's ATE time. Zorn and Thorn sneak inside the town! The two
    will hide, and Marcus with Blank will run into the area. They will talk about
    helping Zidane will security, but I think Steiner has that taken care of, to be
    quite honest. They don't see Zorn and Thorn and leave. Then Zorn and Thorn
    leave.

    Everyone will go out of Gargan Roo's ladder, and be in Tot's observatory. Eiko
    decides to go sightseeing. Eiko asks Vivi to go with her, and he agrees. Then
    Freya will take this time to relax. Amarant just leaves. Tot tells Zidane that
    if he needs any practice with cards, he would be happy to help. Then we view an
    ATE. Eiko insults Zidane, Dagger, and Vivi. It doesn't matter though; she does
    that regularly. Eiko says that Zidane acts to "cool" in front of her to like
    her. Eiko runs off, and Vivi meets someone that I think he knows.
    
    Back to Zidane, Tot will tell you that you need to register for the card
    tournament. Treno's a big place, however, and you won't want to do that yet. I
    highly advise that you walk around the city and play some card games. You need
    the skill. Anyway, the next ATE you see will be Vivi talking to this guy named
    Marco. Apparently, Marco's Master brought Vivi to Alexandria in the first place.
    Marco will leave, and you will have the option of going to your "home" or
    staying in Treno. Select go home, and Vivi will go to his house, which is
    located near Treno, might I add.
    
    So now that you are back to the game, do what I said and get used to Treno's
    card champions. They will be in the tournament. Get Shiva and Ramuh out to
    pulverize them. Remember to view all the ATEs, they are fairly interesting. In
    the next one Amarant will bump into an infamous person. The man will remember
    who Amarant is, and run of scared. Eiko will come over and insult Amarant some
    more. The four-armed man will think Amarant has a soft spot for kids.
    
    Yeah, I know, "Back to Zidane." Have him go to the entrance of Treno and take
    the right stairs. You should play the two kids on this path, they will be in the
    tournament and you can get good cards from them. After you are finished, go down
    the ladder to the right and buy items from the dealer. You can buy Hi-Potions
    here, so if you are running low, get some. After this, run north up the path to
    another screen. Go down the stairs and over to the moogle. Save you're game and
    go into the equipment shop to the right. Buy all the equipment that you want.
    Then, equip Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions and put +20% HP on so you have around
    1800 HP. Also you have to equip Body Temp so he doesn't freeze you. Now, choose
    to fight the beast. You get 15000 Gil if you win!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Catoblepas (Treno Equipment Shop Monster -- Disc Three)
    HP: 4000
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane (28)
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    Reward: 15,000 Gil
    
    You will be fighting Catoblepas as a regular enemy soon in the game, so I think
    that you should be able to defeat him. The tough part is he has Devil's Kiss,
    which will freeze you every time. You have to equip the ability called Body Temp
    before the battle starts. If you don't, more then likely his first attack will
    be Devil's Kiss. Catoblepas doesn't have more then that, though. He has
    Thundara, which is a semi-deadly attack. It does around 500 damage to you. This
    is why I told you to equip Auto-Potion; you can quickly heal this in a matter of
    seconds. Catoblepas also has Earthquake. This is an earth-based attack that does
    around 300 damage each time. If you don't have Auto-Potion, buy a Feather Boot
    add on. This absorbs earth damage. Catoblepas uses Earthquake around 50% of the
    time so he will you! Absorb = Heal. Auto-Potion and Feather Boots make this
    fight pathetically easy. Catoblepas didn't stand a chance against me, besides
    Devil's Kiss. Just hack away with attacks on him, you should be doing around
    1,000 damage each time. This makes the battle pathetically easy as Catoblepas
    only has 4,000 HP. It's a very easy 15,000 Gil, if you ask me.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight you will get your fantastic reward! Now it's time to view more
    ATEs. While you are viewing them, walk over to Stella's house and give her all
    the Stellazios that you have. She will give you good items and Gil for them,
    which is great. After this, walk down from Stella's house twice and you will be
    at the card tournament area. View the ATE of the four-armed man trying to
    capture Eiko. He wants the bounty on Amarant's head, which Lani probably put on
    him. The four-armed man will get desperate, and ask Eiko out to dinner. Then
    Quina, out of nowhere, will come in and ask about the delicious food. I think he
    swam back to Alexandria! He keeps asking for food, and the four-armed man runs
    off! Haha! Eiko will pick up the Chimera Armlet from the four-armed man. It
    seems he dropped it.
    
    In one of the other ATEs, Freya and Amarant will talk. We will learn about
    Amarant's relationship to Zidane. It seems that Zidane tricked Amarant when he
    stole something at the auction house. Amarant was a guard there, and Zidane
    accused him of stealing what he stole. The other guards stupidly agreed with
    Zidane and Amarant ran off with a "wanted" title. You will have control of Freya
    in the conversation. Choose not to push him further. Now, this next part will
    net you around 30,000 Gil and another coffee type, so if you want it, listen up.
    Go to the Auction House and talk to Freya. She will ask you for a tour, and
    allow her to team up with you. She will only be here if you chose not to push
    him, however. Now, go to the main entrance of Treno and leave. We will be on the
    world map.
    
    Quan's Dwelling
    ---------------
    
    Now you need to go pick up Vivi. Remember we told him to leave town for his
    home? Go to the left of Treno and passed the trees to find a small cavern. This
    is Quan's Dwelling. You will see Vivi here. Talk to him, and have him join up
    also. Now you will have three people. This should be enough for the harder
    enemies that lurk around here. Go out of Quan's Dwelling, then go back to Treno
    but don't go inside the city. Instead, go we west of here to South Gate. Follow
    the path to the other side to go to the Dali gate. Then go back to the world map
    on the Dali side. Go over to Dali.
    
    Dali
    ----
    
    This is the small windmill town where the Black Mages were being built. You
    should remember this place from disc one. Anyway, go the mayor's house. This is
    the house on the left before the windmill. Go inside and you will see that the
    Mayor is not home. However, his son is. His son is very ill and asleep, so walk
    in this room with the D Pad. Pick up all the items in this room. (Just walk
    around until the field icon pops up.) You should find a Mini-Brahne and the
    Mayor's Key in a desk. Now, go back outside and go into the windmill room. Go
    down the manhole and back into the underground where they were making the Black
    Mages. Go down the elevator and advance into the next room. Use the Mayor Key to
    get into the Chocobo's pen. You will find 30,000 Gil and Burman Coffee here!
    Head back to Treno.
    
    Treno
    -----
    
    Now that you are back at Treno, let's buy all the items we need before we
    continue. You should find a Synthesis Shop in the area before Stella's House. It
    doesn't have as good of items to synthesis as Alexandria, but if you need
    anything get them here! After, go over to the equipment shop and get equipment
    if you need it. Now, before we continue with the card tournament, it's time to
    go to the Auction House again. Go inside and, if you didn't do the cotton robe
    trick, it's time to use all the money you have at this point to make your
    characters better. Here is the guide:
    
    Auction House list:
    
    Four Fairy Earrings (6,000 Gil each)
    Two Magician Robes (7,000 Gil each)
    Two Madain's Rings (7,500 Gil each)
    
    This will give you Level Up, Auto-Potion, and Chemist. The prices are not exact;
    you can pay a little more or a little less. These items are "acclaimed," so you
    should be able to bid on them most of the time you enter the auction house. If
    you don't get what you want, then re-enter the auction house until you do. It
    should cost around 60,000 Gil to get all the auction items. You should have way
    more then that at this point in time with the 45,000 Gil you just got. Here is
    what you will get:
    
       Level Up  -  1.5 times normal experience in battle. (Fairy Earrings)
                    (Everyone can equip this as a add on.)
    Auto-Potion  -  Automatically heals you when hit. (Magician Robes)
                    (Dagger, Vivi, and Quina can equip these and use the Auto-
                     Potion ability. You can get the other 5 characters with GOLD
                     CHOKERS, these give them Auto-Potion as well!)
        Chemist  -  Doubles potency of Medical Items. (Madain's Rings)
                    (Only Steiner and Freya can use this skill with Madain's
                     Ring. You can give Dagger a cotton robe to give her this
                     skill also.)
    
    These things will help a lot. See if you already have the abilities. You might
    have Auto-Potion. If you have any, then substitute them out. Keep the magician
    robes in here, though, as they make your defense a little higher then that of
    the enemies you will be fighting soon. So, they will do around 20% less damage
    then usual. Now that you are done buying stuff, it's time to participate in the
    card tournament.
    
    Card Tournament
    ---------------
    
    Now it's time to continue with the walkthrough. Go to the card stadium area.
    This is south of the Synthesis Shop house. Talk to the guy behind the counter,
    and you will find out that the champion is a cute sailor girl. Zidane will
    really want to meet her. He will sign up, and to begin the first game just go
    inside the stadium. The first game isn't that hard. Remember to choose Shiva and
    Ramuh, as they are both wonderful. You should have three other good Gnolls and
    Zuus on you. I had fairly decent cards and I got a perfect against him. Just
    play smart; Read the Tetra Master section for more detail. Basically, you should
    have a lot better cards then him in the first round. You should almost win by
    default.
    
    After the first round you will come out and be faced with more ATEs. Look at
    them, but otherwise go right of the card stadium. Save at the moogle, then go
    back and play against your next opponent. You will play either a Namingway Card
    person or a Noble. Playing the Namingway Card person will be tough; He is just
    like you. He has around the same cards, and two Namingways that kill anything.
    The only thing is that sometimes his Namingway cards don't have good arrows. So,
    if you kept resetting and got good Shiva and Ramuh cards, then he shouldn't be a
    problem. Two of his five cards are Namingways. If you face the noble, he is just
    like attic man. He isn't very tough, and with Ramuh and Shiva, you shouldn't
    have much of a problem.
    
    Now, it's time for the third and final round. Before you reenter the stadium,
    look at one of the ATEs of Quina. She will hallucinate and jump into the water.
    Now, go back to the moogle again and save your game. This is just to be
    cautious; this next card battle won't be as hard as the other two. After you
    save, view the last ATE "Premonition." We will learn that the crystals were
    split 500 years ago. These are all the summoner crystals that Doctor Tot gave
    you. He will wonder what happened 500 years ago to make all the crystals be
    scattered across the land. Then Eiko will run to see Mog, it seems she (Mog)
    senses something bad!
    
    Now go back to the Card Stadium. Go inside and the sailor will show up. It seems
    Regent Cid and the Sailor are friends or something. Now we know why she only
    uses Oglop Cards! The Regent must be... dealing them to her or something. Erin
    signs up, and the two people belittle the Oglop. They don't know it is the
    Regent! Erin says that it is her champion pet. The Regent protests and then the
    two go inside to face Zidane. The final game is the easiest of the three; Erin
    only uses Oglop cards. These cards are not very good; they are pretty average in
    strength and such. You should have no problem at all beating her. Remember to
    take Shiva, Ramuh, and three other good cards with you. For this battle work
    more on strength then arrows; that's what will win it for you in the end. She
    might try to overwhelm you with arrows, but in the end all it will take is one
    card in a Oglop card with all it's arrows to combo your way to a win! If you
    don't win, retry. Why? Because you get an acclaimed Rebirth Ring for winning!
    This is a very valuable add on!
    
    After the card duel, Zidane will be announced as champion. Then the three will
    talk a little. Zidane tries to hit on Erin a little, but the Oglop- Regent Cid-
    gives him a manner uppercut. I think Erin and Regent are... err... Anyway, the
    conversation will get to testing the Regent's new airship, which is called The
    Hilda Garde 2. Eiko will then run over and say that something terrible it going
    to happen in Alexandria!

    Enemies:
    --------
    Mistodon (1500 HP)
    Tantarian (Optional Boss -- Disc Three)
    
    Kuja is seen by the statue. He starts to rap- err... make up poetry. Kuja then
    says that he is Bahamut's former master. For people who don't know what "former"
    means; it means before. So Kuja was a summoner? Bahamut comes out of the sky and
    starts wreaking havoc on the small city. Dagger watches in tears. Then we hear
    the "alarm" music that this game has when something terrible happens. We see all
    the townspeople running for safety. Then we will be at Dagger's lookout.
    
    Beatrix will come in and inform the Queen that the soldiers are ready for her
    orders. They line up and Dagger comes out. You will now have to give soldiers
    orders. You might be going "What?" right about now; You haven't seen these
    soldiers in your life before. If you give them the correct orders, Beatrix will
    give you a special add- on. The following are the correct orders: Blutzen and
    Kohel should gather information, Weimar and Haagen should protect the
    townspeople, Breireicht and Laudo should contact Lindblum to request
    reinforcements, and Dojebon and Mullenkedheim should begin preparations to fire
    the cannons. Beatrix will say that you were splendid and give you Angel
    Earrings, a very special add-on. Beatrix and Steiner will go the protect the
    townspeople themselves. Dagger will desperately ask for her mother's help by
    looking at the portrait of her. Then lights will flicker on Dagger and she will
    collapse.
    
    You know when this game gets good when the music changes to something less
    alarming. Some Mistodons will be terrorizing the city of Alexandria and Beatrix
    will say that she will give her all. Now you have control of Steiner and
    Beatrix! First off, I want you to unequip the Blood Sword that Steiner is
    wielding currently. Against the undead it will heal the Mistodons and hurt you.
    I suggest that you equip him with the Coral Sword, a sword that you should have
    bought in Alexandria or Treno.
    
    Now, before we heroically fight, let's do one other thing. I know it might sound
    sad, but let's strip all of Beatrix's equipment off of her. You can't
    unequip/equip something else for the Save the Queen, but you can unequip
    everything else she has on. This is some good stuff. You can sell everything but
    the Gold Helm. You will want Steiner to wear that, unless he is still learning
    Level Up from the Iron Helm. Now, you will fight a series of Mistodons. These
    creatures are not that tough, in fact, I would say they are easy. Steiner could
    tear through all of them on his own, and I suspect you do that. Steiner is
    undoubtedly down a lot of levels from everyone else (Zidane, Amarant...) so have
    Beatrix kill herself, and Steiner gets all of the experience. It might sound
    cruel, but you will still get the same joy in watching them talk after the
    fights. You need the experience, too.
    
    Mistodons are not that tough with just Steiner. You should have Auto-Potion
    equipped on him, so they should be a breeze. The only thing that they do that's
    annoying is cast Mist on you. This will put your whole party to sleep. You
    should equip the Insomiac ability to counter it. However, if you don't have it,
    or forgot to equip it, in the next move the Mistodon will more then likely
    attack you physically; Awaking you. You will fight a lot of these Mistodons.
    Watch as Beatrix and Steiner give their all for Alexandria; For Dagger; And,
    mostly importantly, for each other. In the last battle Steiner will trance.
    Zidane Tranced for Dagger, Vivi Tranced for Black Mages, and now, Steiner
    Tranced for Beatrix. That could only mean one thing... The L word- No no, not
    that show on HBO! Um... anyway, you will get a towering 2500 experience with
    just Steiner for leveling up on each Mistodon. This should bring him closer to
    the other party member's levels.
    
    Now we are back to Dagger, after that very inspiration scene. Dagger will wake
    up to music. Music! Only one sick person would do that... I think you know whom
    I am referring to. If you don't, then play through this game again and actually
    read the dialogue. Anyway, Dagger will hint that the music is coming from
    upstairs. Parts of the castle are blocked off. It's the same forcefield that was
    blocking the Iifa Tree; or Square was too lazy to make another color of one. Go
    up either stairway and south to the famous castle corridor. Go up the stairs to
    Dagger's right. Then, go north through the double doors and into another room.
    This is before the Queen's Room, but if you try to go to it something will shock
    you and unable you to go. So, take the left stairs and go through the door. As
    you go up the stairs to the top, swords will clash allowing you not to go back.
    
    Once you reach the top, a tower will rise from the ground. I think you know
    where to go. Go up the stairs and through the doorway. Go up more stairs and
    even more stairs until you reach the top. From the top, go over to the middle
    area and the game will take over. Dagger will comment that she can still hear
    music. She will argue with herself because she doesn't want to have to depend on
    her Mother or Boyfrie- err... Zidane anymore. Then we go to Cid's ship. The ship
    will be rocking back and forth; they may never make it past Evil Forest. Cid
    will say that an Oglop made it; so I guess it's really good for being by him. It
    should have one of those "Made in China" stickers on the bottom.
    
    Vivi will complain that he's feeling sick to Zidane, and Amarant will smartly
    answer that he should stay in the middle of the ship. As Vivi is going up to the
    deck he sees Eiko. Something is sparkling on her, just like Dagger. Then we here
    a loud crack and everyone falls besides Zidane and Eiko. Eiko goes to the bow of
    the ship, and it looks as if she is ready to commit suicide. Zidane yells for
    her and Eiko mumbles some words then free falls. We see a marvelous FMV of Eiko
    falling to Dagger. She somehow levitates and puts her feet on the ground
    smoothly. They will talk about how they heard one another. Then Eiko will say
    that a holy summoner is calling for them. They will hold hands and pray from
    their heart. A light will glow and move rapidly between them. They will say some
    mystifying words, and the light will grow bigger. Finally it becomes pure light,
    and we see a FMV.
    
    Wings are over Alexandria Castle. They are brilliant, white wings. Bahamut
    glances over at them, and throws one of his fireballs at it. The wings
    carelessly disintegrate the fireball, then send a whirl of light to Bahamut. He
    tries to fly away, but gets hit to many times by the light and explodes. Then we
    go back to Kuja. He will talk about the Wings. It is Alexander, The legendary
    Eidolon. Was this what Brahne was after...?
    
    Kuja will call his eye to come. It seems like it is about to take Alexander,
    just like it did Bahamut. Then we see the insides of the eye. It turns out that
    the eye is a ship! A man with a black cape will be talking about Kuja. He will
    say that Kuja has defied him. The mystery man will say that he has given Kuja
    freedom on Gaia, but he broke a rule. Then he says that the same is for Zidane.
    He will thrust his hand in the air and red light will surround it. Then we will
    see a baffled Kuja wonder why Alexander isn't becoming enslaved. Then he will
    talk about Garland, and wonder why he would go to Gaia. Kuja will be shocked for
    the first time.
    
    Meanwhile, Regent Cid and the others come inside the castle. A Pluto Knight will
    run passed them and wonder where the Queen went. Then we have control of Zidane.
    Now, if you didn't fight Tantarian in disc two you can fight him now in disc
    three. The battle will be much easier, so don't worry about that. You can find
    Tantarian in the left library. Check the bookcase at the bottom of the room. You
    will see a yellow book on the top of the last one. A field icon will pop up.
    Press X and you will fight Tantarian.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Tantarian (Disc 3)
    HP: 20000
    Steal: Elixir, Silver Fork
    Party: Zidane (28), Vivi (28), Freya (18), Amarant (27)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Please read this whole strategy before fighting! You can fight the Tantarian at
    Disc Two and Three. This strategy will cover disc three. Fighting Tantarian in
    disc three is where you are supposed to fight him. I will cover all the aspects
    of him and this fight, but let us take a look at preparation first.
    
    Preparation:  * All characters must be at recommended levels.
    ------------  * Zidane must have stolen normally throughout the entire game.
                    This doesn't mean you went bonkers when stealing; it just means
                    you stole items occasionally. This is for Thievery.
                  * Everyone must have Auto-Potion equipped, and you must have a
                    strong supply of Hi-Potions.
                  * Amarant must be in the process of learning Chakra. If he isn't,
                    then equip the Cat's Claw.
                  * Vivi must have an Oak Staff to cast Bio. (Substitution: 'ra's)
                  * Everyone must have the best equipment they can get this far in
                    the game. This is so they survive attacks.
                  * Freya should know, or have her learn, the chemist ability.
    
    Overview:  Tantarian has two forms: Book Form and Cute Form. In Book Form,
    ---------  which is the form that you will start the battle with, Tantarian
               will almost be unmatched in all attacks. You will only do around 50
               damage to him per attack. It is almost like being Mini'd.
               Tantarian will use two attacks in this form: Edge and Paper Storm.
               You will be happy when he does Edge on you; it will do around 600
               damage to one character. When he does Paper Storm, however, it will
               do 400 damage to the whole party! This is why it is imperative that
               everyone knows Auto-Potion and you have 40-50 Hi-Potions in stock.
               This will effectively counter both attacks. Now, besides this, Tan-
               tarian will look for his cute form. He will waste turns sometimes
               and try to find Cute Form in his book. He won't find it until you
               have inflicted enough damage on him. When he turns to Cute Form, DO
               NOT PHYSICALLY ATTACK HIM! He will close his book and you will be
               back to Book Form. All you can do is use magic here. Tantarian will
               use Poison in this stage only. After you have inflicted enough
               damage on him again, he will return to Book Form. This is a pattern
               which you must go through a couple times before he is defeated.
    
    Attacks:  Book Form
    --------  ---------
               * Edge is a physical attack that he does normally in Book Form. It
                 will do around 600 damage to one character. This can easily be
                 countered with Auto-Potion or Freya healing.
               * Paper Storm is a magic attack that he does in Book Form. It will
                 do around 400 damage to every character. Auto-Potion can comple-
                 letely counter this attack. However, you will have to run out of
                 Hi-Potions some day...
               * This is not an attack, but he normally looks for Cute Form in
                 his book. This doesn't do any damage to you, and actually gives
                 you a turn to attack more often. Overall, you want to see this.
    
              Cute Form
              ---------
               * Poison is the only attack that he will use in Cute Form. It will
                 inflict damage and the Poison Status on a character. You will
                 need a character to throw an Antidote to counter this.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
     Zidane: Zidane is going to be the "star" of your fight. He is the all star
             in your team. With his Thievery Skill, he will be able to inflict
             around 750 damage on Tantarian EVEN WHEN HE IS IN BOOK FORM! This
             is absolutely amazing and a real lifesaver. The damage that is done
             with Thievery is calculated with this formula: Number of items
             stolen in game * Half of your current speed. This means that if you
             stole 50 times in the game and had 20 speed, you would do 500
             damage. The reason for this is because 50 * 20/2 = 500. Your
             Thievery skill will vary with your current statistics. This is why
             it is ABSOLUTELY VITAL that you stole normally in the game. Fifty
             times might seem like a lot, but it really isn't. You have gone
             through three discs, and you probably stole a lot in disc one.
             Your current speed should be around 24, so you will be inflicting a
             lot of damage on Tantarian. This is almost a bug in the game,
             because you should only be able to inflict around 50 damage on
             Tantarian every turn. With this, you will be able to do around 750
             damage every turn! When you run low on MP, have Amarant use the
             Chakra skill on you (See: Amarant's Duty). This is basically all
             Zidane is going to do in this fight.
    
    Amarant: Amarant should have the Chakra ability equipped. This will be used
             to heal Zidane's MP during this battle. Amarant's duty is to do
             this, and to heal the party. This is his main role. He also can phy-
             sically attack if he has an open turn. However, you might want to
             just put him on standby with triangle.
    
       Vivi: Vivi is to also heal. This is only in Book Form, however. In Cute
             Form, he is to use Bio until the cows come home. This will to a ton
             of damage on Tantarian. It makes the fight go by a lot quicker once
             Tantarian goes into Cute Form. Besides this, if Vivi has an open
             slot in Book Form, you can have him defend, or waste MP by using
             Magic on him.
    
      Freya: Freya is also a full time healer in this battle. However, when an
             open turn in Book Form arrives, you can have her use Jump or Lancer.
             In Cute Form, she is to abuse Lancer until her MP runs out. Then
             Amarant is to use Chakra to heal her MP right back up.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the optional battle, go back to the square room with the picture of Queen
    Brahne. Go the same way you controlled Dagger to the mysterious tower. The quick
    directions are: South, Up stairs, North through double doors, Up stairs and
    through door to left, and up the stairs to the top. You might notice that
    swords, which clashed earlier, have disintegrated, allowing you to go up. Once
    you reach the top, everyone will run over to the tower. Zidane will say that
    this tower will go any minute, and that they should all leave. They all think of
    excuses to leave Zidane to go up the tower besides Vivi, who is somewhat forced
    to leave.
    
    Now you have control of Zidane again. Run up the stairs to the top of the tower
    just as you controlled Dagger to do before. About halfway up the ground will
    start to shake. Then we will have a FMV. Dagger will be shocked, and Eiko will
    try to run over to her. Some forcefield will allow her not too. The ground will
    break and Dagger will be falling on part of the tower to the ground. Then,
    Zidane will come out of no where and jump onto her platform. They will both use
    a part of a rope (which was originally used for decoration) to safety jump off.
    It gives you a sense of completeness when you go back to what has happened in
    the past... doesn't it?
    
    Zidane and Dagger will talk a little. Then Eiko does not mince her words and
    says, "they made a big mess." The ground will start to shake and Zidane will
    tell them to go. We will see another FMV of the Invincible shooting a deadly
    blow at Alexander, or more importantly Alexandria. It will destroy everything
    and make a catastrophe. Then we will see Garland. He will say some very
    important words. You'd best listen to them carefully, and reread them if you
    don't get them. Garland will then walk off, talking about he too must accept
    fate, and face "his counterpart."

    We will here an interesting melody that sounds familiar. We will know that we
    are in Lindblum when we see part of the Business District. Cid and Artania will
    talk about how strong their people are. Baku will do his now trademark sneeze
    and with Blank, they will walk over to Cid. After some conversation, Baku will
    tell Blank to check on Zidane. Cid adds to tell Zidane to go to his room. Then
    we will go to the guestroom.
    
    Zidane will wake up and wonder himself to death. Then we have control of him.
    Take the Egoist's Armlet in the chest to the right by the bed, and the Elixir
    next to the moogle up the stairs. Save at the moogle here. Also talk to him
    about Mognet and he will give you a letter. Now, when you try to walk out of the
    guestroom you will see Blank walk in. Ask him about Dagger, and Blank will say
    that she might be in the telescope room. Zidane will run off in a hurry after
    that.
    
    In the next area, look at the ATE to find Quina on the shores. Guards will think
    that "it" is dead. An Elite Guard will come and act like he's in charge. All he
    can muster, though, is "He's Dead." Then, he will shout some orders and the two
    Guards will run very fast. It isn't because they are obedient, though. It's
    because Quina has awakened! The Elite Guard will run off, and Quina will wonder
    where this area is. If you remember, Quina actually has never been to Lindblum.
    Then s/he will talk about food... him/her's favorite subject.
    
    You are now back to controlling Zidane. Go left and down the stairs. You will be
    at the Fountain/Lift area. The guard guarding (that's what they do) the lift
    seems to not care much about Zidane getting on. Go to the upper level, where the
    telescope room is, obviously. Then, take a left right before the Grand Entry Way
    to the Regent's room. Why is it that when you go up towers you always go left?
    When you reach the top, take the steps to the right and go up to the telescope
    where Dagger is.
    
    Zidane will talk to Dagger with his usual outgoing self. Dagger can't say
    anything, and Zidane thinks that he is doing something wrong. He talks a little
    more, and then tries to cheer her up by saying that they should go check out the
    town. Wouldn't this... make her feel worse? She just lost an entire kingdom!
    Could Zidane possibly think that it would cheer her up? Zidane finally realizes
    that a lot has happened, and leaves. Dagger thinks that Zidane is sweet, so I
    don't think Zidane did to badly there.
    
    Watch the "My Bad" ATE. Blank forgot to tell Zidane to go to the Regent's room.
    Blank then leans against a rail and waits for you. Back to Zidane, go back down
    to Blank. It's right next to the lift, if you didn't recognize it before. Once
    you get down there, Blank will say hello to Zidane again. They will get to
    talking and Blank will tell you that Cid wants to talk to you. He should be in
    the Royal Chamber. Then he walks to the lift, all Baku-like.
    
    Again, you have control of Zidane. Walk north under the grand doorway. In the
    next area, take the first floor room. You will see everyone here. They will tell
    you to go to the upstairs room. I just wanted you to be reassured that everyone
    was safe; I could of just led you on that everyone else was dead. Talk to the
    Elite Guard, then open the doors to the royal chamber. You will see Cid and the
    Minister here. They will call you a "hero" and tell you to go to the conference
    room. Then the Minister will lead you to it and the Oglop will slide down...
    He's having too much fun with this equipment.
    
    Everyone will now be in the conference room but Dagger. Eiko will quickly run
    off to go get her. Then Cid will begin the meeting. However, we don't get to see
    it just yet. An ATE will pop up. We will see Dagger think about all the people
    that are now killed. She blames herself for everything. Back to the conference
    room, Steiner will talk about the travesty that happened in Alexandria. He
    continues to talk about how his beloved (he doesn't use that word) Beatrix is
    missing. Freya will go get into the conversation by saying that Kuja has
    destroyed all four great nations. Zidane, almost as naive as Dagger, will say
    that they need to kill Kuja. Amarant tells him the truth; Kuja is FAR more
    powerful then us.
    
    Cid will say that he saw Kuja evacuate on the Hilda Garde 1. It always comes
    back to Cid... doesn't it? If he didn't cheat on his wife, Kuja would be dead
    right now! Cid will quickly say that there were Black Mages aboard the ship as
    well. He will say that they were sane, talking ones! (He knows this because they
    weren't shouting "KILL!" every five seconds). This brings Vivi and Zidane into
    turmoil. Another unavoidable ATE pops up and we will see Kuja, who has safety
    landed. He will walk down with two Black Mage guards. Then we will see Zorn and
    Thorn, who are even thorns to Kuja now. Kuja will yell at them, then yell at the
    Black Mages. It seems Kuja has "preparations" to be had.
    
    It was mandatory ATE day at Square, I guess. Zidane will sum up a conversation
    that Cid must have told them. It is the truth about him being turned into an
    Oglop. They will talk about Hilda a little, and then about airships. Finally,
    the Minister will say that Doctor Tot is coming to help Cid. Doctor Tot will
    enter, and ask if everyone is doing okay. As he is about to talk, a six-year-old
    runs in and says something. Wait, that's Eiko! She will say that Dagger has lost
    her voice! This will bring uproar to the entire room. Then Cid decides to
    postpone the meeting, and everyone goes to see if Dagger is okay.
    
    You have control of Zidane again. Walk south to the lift and go to the Middle
    Level. Then go back to the guestroom. It's right of the stairs and the first
    left. Zidane, Steiner, and Doctor Tot will run in. Eiko will show them Dagger.
    Zidane will say some things, and Doctor Tot will confirm that she has indeed
    lost her voice. She has gone through too much to fast, and in return has lost
    her voice. Doctor Tot will say that this is only temporary. However, it may be a
    LONG time before she gets her voice back. Isn't this somewhat like "I Want To Be
    Your Canary"!? Zidane will talk naive a little more; it seems he thinks he can
    go beat the crap out of Kuja. Eiko will have to look over both Dagger and
    Steiner; Steiner should lose his ****ing voice too! He lost his nation, his
    loved one, and now all his life was composed of. But no, Steiner just goes on a
    mournathon.
    
    Back at Cid's Room, Doctor Tot explains that if they mix a certain potion Cid
    might become a human again. This means he might be able to, unless he's to busy
    sleeping with Erin, make another airship! Zidane will take up the task of
    finding the three potions. He thinks that Cinna has the unusual potion. Why?
    Because Cinna's unusual! His clothes stink, his hair is moldy, his gloves are
    slimy, his pockets have crumbs in them-- Okay, okay, I think you got it. Then we
    are faced with another ATE. This one is on Cinna. Apparently he's obsessed with
    his hammer. What this gives us is that he is in the Theater District.
    
    Go there! Take the lift to the Middle Level, and go to the air cab. Ride it to
    the Theater District, Where Tantalus' Hideout resides. Go out of the air cab
    station like normal and you will see some ra- err... Burmecians. These are the
    people that Zidane saved! They will talk a little, and then we will have an ATE
    of Freya. You know even before the screen flicks on because it is Freya's music.
    She will see two Burmecian soldiers. They will talk a little, but mainly on the
    factor that they are building a new Burmecia with all the remaining Burmecians!
    They ask Freya to come, but she declines saying that she needs to complete her
    objective. I wonder what that is...
    
    Back to Zidane, it seems the two of them finished up a conversation about
    something. The couple shows them their children, and boy did they... err... do
    they have a lot of kids! They will chat for a little bit, then the kids will go
    back to playing. If you ask the couple about any of the potions, they don't know
    anything about them. Now this is where the walkthrough kicks in. On this screen,
    go to the southeast part and to the underground room. This is where that one
    artist is. Before talking to him, take the Lapis Lazuli from the chest. Ask him
    about the potions. He will say that he has never heard of them BUT if you find
    it in his studio, just take it like you did the Lapis Lazuli. Look on the ground
    in the western part of the room south of the stairs to find the Strange Potion!
    
    That's one down, three to go. Now it's time to head over to Tantalus. You know
    where that is. Just go out of the underground art place and take the stairs to
    the northwest down to Tantalus' hideout. Zidane will walk in, acting like he
    owns the place, and will say hello you everyone. Benero, who seems to have taken
    a small role as Quina, will say that it is a good sign he can walk. They will
    talk a little longer and Zidane will ask Cinna if he has the Unusual Potion.
    Cinna will run in and give it to him. They ask what he is going to use it for,
    and they are shocked with his answer as he runs off.
    
    Now, go back to the Air Cab Station and take the Air Cab to the Business
    District. From here, walk outside the station and go north through the
    reconstruction of the village. In the next area, you should see the Gysahl
    Pickles stand. To the left of it you will see two people working on something.
    If you go up the slope and a little south of them, you will find Sagittarius.
    Now, go northeast to the shopping circle with the fountain. Go inside the
    equipment shop and buy equipment/items. They moved the shop here after the Item
    Shopkeeper's Shop blew up. Also check out the Synthesis Shop. This is a
    redemption shop; if you didn't get anything in Alexandria or Treno, get it here!
    
    Back to the last potion. Walk back outside to the fountain. Talk to Alice, who
    is the woman in white next to Dragoos' equipment shop. She has the Beautiful
    Potion! Now you have all three! Before we go back to the castle, let me tell you
    a little secret about this. Each potion has to do with the person. The Artist is
    strange because he works on his paintings all day, so it was easy enough to
    figure out that the Strange Potion was with him. Alice, who is Beautify, would
    obviously have the Beautiful Potion. And, of course, Cinna is such an unusual
    fellow that he would have to have the Unusual Potion! (And he's Vivi's
    Uncle...). Does it make sense now? Before you go back to the castle, pick up the
    chest in Card Freak Gon's house. This is one area south of the fountain circle
    shopping area.
    
    Back to the Castle we go. Back to the Cid's Throne Room as well. When Zidane
    arrives, he will already have the potion ready. He will give it to Doctor Tot,
    and Tot will shove it down Cid's throat (Well, not really). Cid will now turn
    into a frog! If we weren't going to get an airship in 10 years, we certainly
    aren't going to get one in 50 years now! Cid will command everyone to go back to
    the Conference Room.
    
    Everyone will be shocked that Cid turned into a frog. Cid will say that they can
    use a seaship instead of an airship. Then Cid wonders where to go. Vivi makes
    things more visible when he continues to talk about the black mages being on
    Kuja's side. So, we will sail our ship to Black Mage Village. Zidane will
    protest to Dagger going with them, but Eiko will act like a sister and say that
    she will look out for her. Then we will have an ATE of Quina being lost. S/he
    will hear the Gysahl Pickle guy saying that the pickles are delicious. Then s/he
    will start to eat all of the pickles.
    
    Before we go, if you need any items or haven't bought any new equipment, do it
    now. Then, take the lift to the Base Level. Go over to the right trolley and
    take it to Serpent's Gate. This is different from Dragon's Gate. You will arrive
    at the small trolley station. Go south to the docks. Then, run up to the ship
    and climb aboard. Inside, Zidane will find Blank, Quina, and Cid. After some
    conversation, you will have control of the Blue Narciss. Just make sure that
    Quina doesn't eat Cid!
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Before you go to the World Map you will be asked to select characters. I advise
    that you choose Zidane, Amarant, Steiner, and Eiko. This is a very well balanced
    team. You can substitute in Vivi if you like, but Amarant/Steiner do more damage
    then him, and Eiko is useful for healing. Whatever you do, do not choose Dagger.
    Why? She is depressed, so sometimes she doesn't pull through with her turns.
    This is why I have been emphasizing that you choose Eiko over Dagger throughout
    most of the game. Anyway, you will now have control of the Blue Narciss. I
    advise that you do a couple Mini-Games like Chocobo Forest for a while before
    you go to Black Mage Village. See the Side Quests section for more detail. Also,
    go to Esto Gaza, it is a small city in the northern part of the map. You will
    find it tucked in a mountain and on an icy island. Inside you will find good
    weapons; equip them when you have all the abilities in your current weapons.
    Now, set sail to Black Mage Village. If you do not know where it is tap select
    and you should find out exactly where it is by looking at your map. Then get off
    the ship and enter Black Mage Village through the forest.

    Enemies:
    --------
    None
    
    Zidane and Vivi run into a deserted village. Vivi decides to go take a look
    around, and you have control of Zidane. Follow Vivi north to the next screen.
    Then go passed the two houses and down the stairs to the cemetery. Number 288
    will be there. He states the obvious; everyone left with Kuja. Kuja apparently
    can make their lifespan longer. Vivi runs off to the Chocobo Shack to get more
    information because Number 288 doesn't want to betray his friends.
    
    Follow him to the Chocobo Shack. Backtrack to the entrance, then take the
    northeastern path. Vivi will knock on the door, and a Black Mage will say, "It's
    born." The chocobo has finally hatched, and the two Black Mages are overjoyed
    with happiness. Zidane and Vivi will leave the shack and find Number 288
    outside. They will talk a little about stopping then Number 288 will reveal that
    Kuja's palace is on the eastern side of this continent, in the sand. Then we
    will see Eiko and Dagger talk a little, and everyone will form up. Don't worry,
    though, you don't get stuck with both Eiko and Dagger. I guess they came along
    but were not in your party. Anyway, leave Black Mage Village and go back to the
    Blue Narciss, which should be at the beach right next to Black Mage Village.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Now, go over to the eastern side of the continent. You will see a long isle with
    all shores. Disembark, and you should see four sand holes dead north. This is
    the tough part. One of them leads to Kuja's palace, the other three lead to a
    fight with an Antlion. First, choose the most northern of the four. If you don't
    know which one is more north, just look at the map. Then, if you fought an
    Antlion, choose the one that doesn't have sand puffing out of it every few
    seconds. You should be able to see this if you look at everyone closely. I had
    to fight the Antlion once before I got in and caught onto what to look for. You
    probably fought the Antlion once or twice before you got in. He is very tough;
    he has this attack called Sandstorm that will bring everyone's HP to critical
    stage. This completely sucks. Have Eiko heal while the other three have at him.
    Heal darkness if it gets onto you. He also has counterhorn, which does around
    600 damage. It's deadly, so don't attack unless you have more then 600 HP. It's
    a fairly tough fight, and the experience sucks. When you find the right hole,
    you will find that the screen will fade instead of fighting an Antlion.
    
    Desert Palace
    -------------
    
    You will see Zidane and Cid both inside a small cell. After some conversation,
    Kuja will come on an intercom and start to talk to you. You will then get to
    choose from "I don't have a choice!" and "Never!" Choose whichever you like, it
    will end in not having a choice. If you choose never, Kuja will open the lava
    pit a little more. No big deal, eh? Anyway, after you have no choice you will
    walk out of the cell.
    
    After Cid and Zidane converse a little, you will have control of Zidane. If you
    go around the perimeter of the area all you will find is your other party
    members locked inside cells. So, go down the bridge-like path in the middle. You
    will meet up with a circle platform and two Black Mages. Kuja will tell you to
    get in the middle of them, and you will agree. Then they will teleport you to a
    fancy room. Walk east about halfway down and you will have a little chat with
    Kuja.
    
    Zidane will be his crabby self, especially in front of Kuja, but he will finally
    snap out of it. Kuja wants you to go to a place called Oeilvert and retrieve a
    Gulug Stone there. He says that the place has an anti-magic barrier, so he can't
    go inside. Basically, he says he's a coward that relies on magic. Then he asks
    you to choose three other party members to help you on this trip. Since you
    cannot use magic in the place, you will have to rely on physical attacks. This
    is why I had you choose Zidane, Amarant, Steiner, and Eiko before. However, Eiko
    will be more then useless inside Oeilvert. Dagger, Vivi, and Eiko will all be
    completely useless characters inside Oeilvert, unless someone has the Chemist
    ability and you have a lot of Hi-Potions. Freya should be at an extremely low
    level now. (Around 18.) Her level is so low that you almost have to pick Quina.
    S/he can still use Blue Magic inside Oeilvert, coincidentally enough.
    
    He will summon them, and they will be transported to where Zidane and Kuja are.
    Then Zidane will walk on the teleport platform and they will teleport off. You
    would think that right now, with Zidane's other party members, they would be
    able to destroy Kuja. It's weird how he completely forgets about "kicking Kuja's
    butt." No matter, you will arrive at a stone-like place. Equip Quina
    accordingly, then go up the stairs and over to the west. You might fight 1-2
    monsters along the way but you shouldn't have any trouble.
    
    After Zidane amazingly sees the Hilda Garde I, go down the stairs and over to
    the Black Mage by the bridge going to Hilda. Walk up the bridge/ramp and the
    Hilda Garde I will fly off. Hilda looks pretty sweet; it's a cool blue color. It
    will fly out of the current continent. Then, Zidane will try to talk some sense
    into the black mages, but of course it's to no avail. Zorn and Thorn will come
    out and the everyone will chat for a little while. I like Zidane's analogy of
    Zorn and Thorn being puppets as well (^_^). Anyway, it will fly over to the
    Forgotten Continent and land. Then you will be on the world map.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Before you go to Oeilvert you should do a couple things. First off, you can
    press X at Hilda Garde I to converse with Zorn and Thorn. They will sell you
    medical supplies, and you will need them! Buy Softs and Hi-Potions in abundance.
    Second off, you need to get Quina some good Blue Magic. Enemies called
    Adamantoise can be eaten for the Earth Shake spell. Also, learn 1,000 needles
    from Cactuars. It is great Blue Magic that does 1000 damage every time you use
    it. I highly advise that you get both of these spells before you enter Oeilvert.
    You can use Blue Magic in there so don't worry. When you are ready, walk down to
    the southern area of this continent. It will be down a ways. The enemies are
    pretty tough so use tents as needed. They give Gil that will more then
    compensate your tents. The experience is also very good. If you have trouble
    finding Oeilvert just press select once or twice to get a blown up version of
    the world map. It's in the southern side of the Forgotten Continent, just like I
    said. Have everyone equip the Jelly ability. You should have equipment that has
    this ability. Now, follow the canyons down to Oeilvert. When you get there, save
    your game, use a tent, and enter.

    Oeilvert is a pretty strange place. You might notice the music when you arrive;
    it's pretty good. You will see a moogle to the right by the entrance. Talk to
    him about Mognet to get a letter. Buy all the new equipment he has to offer,
    it's really good. Equip it, then save your game. Use a tent if you are low on
    HP. Now it's time to go into the depths of Oeilvert.
    
    Before we do so, let's talk about the enemies. Ogres are no sweat, but can be a
    problem if you don't attack. They should go down with your physical powerhouse
    group. Garuda's aren't really a problem. You might have fought them at the
    Grotto way back when. They were in the dangerous area if you tried to climb the
    blue vines. They aren't really a problem. Firaga is their most deadly attack, so
    heal as necessary. You might notice that the Epitaph has a whole lot of clones!
    The Epitaph is actually easy to defeat, since it is stone-type. Just throw a
    Soft at it and it will become to soft to live. This is a great place to level up
    at since Epitaph's are really easy. Also, I have found this way to get good
    experience in a magazine walkthrough:
    
    "Make sure all four party members have the Jelly ability on before you begin, as
    the Epitaph's only attack is Petrify. (Have Zidane attempt to steal; you'll
    often steal a Phoenix Down that makes this method much easier.) You can take
    advantage of the Epitaph's Mirror spell, which creates a clone of one of your
    characters, by letting it clone up to three of your party members. Now if the
    Epitaph clones a character currently in your party, that character will die.
    Don't worry about the dead character, though, just concentrate on attacking the
    clone - not the Epitaph itself - until you've killed it. Next, if Zidane is
    still alive, use steal again. If he was killed by the clone, however, use the
    next weakest attack you have to hit the Epitaph and make it cast Mirror again.
    After the third clone has been killed, revive any dead characters, then kill the
    Epitaph once and for all. Each clone you kill contributes up to a total of 7,434
    EXP per person. This method also helps build up the strength of Zidane's
    Thievery skill with every successful steal. We recommend spending quite some
    time here to build up levels easily." (Page 86 of Expert Gamer, Kenneth Miller
                                           and Henry LaPierre)
    
    Back to the walkthrough. Follow the path north to the next screen. Walk up the
    stairs to the circular platform and run up to the big gate. It is blocking the
    entrance to where we want to go. Sadly, we don't know anything about what is
    inside. Zidane starts to curse the gate out, and it opens magically. Hey, I
    thought no one could use magic here! Walk inside the open gate. This is the
    center room. We will find a ton of treasure in these next areas. Go over by the
    stairs to get a Remedy. Then, go up the stairs and you will see a chest to the
    right. Take the Rising Sun in it, then go back down the stairs and go to the
    area in the southeast corner of the room.
    
    You will find yourself in a circular room. If you go to the northern part you
    will see Stiltzkin and a moogle. Talk to Stiltzkin and buy the Elixir, Emerald,
    and Hi-Potion for 888 Gil. It's very cheap. Then talk to the regular moogle
    about Mognet and hand him the letter. Save your game then go back to the center
    room. It will be the doorway southwest in the moogle area. Now that you are in
    the center area, go left again into yet another area. This is not the area to
    the left when you go up the stairs. Once inside, get the two chests in this room
    to find a Diamond Sword and Shield Armor. Equip both of these items on Steiner.
    Then take the southwest stairs down to another area.
    
    This area will have four lights in it. If you try to examine them they will not
    respond. Get the Power Vest in the chest to the right on the bottom floor. Equip
    this on Zidane, you will get a nice power boost. Now walk up the stairs and get
    the chest by the stairs. You will find Feather Boots. It's always nice to have
    these for earth type bosses. Now, go back down the stairs and take the northern
    door you used to get in here. You will be back in the area with the circular
    yellow light in the middle. Go around and take the yellow door. The other door
    north a little more will be locked.
    
    You will find yourself in a pretty big room. Go right and follow the path to the
    next area. In here, inspect the silver ball in the middle platform. Nothing will
    happen. Now, follow the path south until you are back in the four light room.
    Take the yellow door on the bottom floor and you will be back in the room with
    the yellow light in the middle of the room. Go right back to the entrance. This
    little expedition was to give you a clear understanding of where most things
    are, and to collect items. Now the real fun begins.
    
    At the entrance (inside the gate) go up the stairs. Then go left into a
    different screen. You will see a blue sphere in the middle of the room. Walk up
    to it and press X when the field icon pops up. Zidane will touch it and it will
    turn red. Now, collect the chest for an Elixir, and then go back to the previous
    room. Walk down the stairs and take the left area. As you are walking by the
    circular yellow light a planet will project over it. This planet is Gaia. Words
    will pop up and Zidane will say that the words are speaking to him. Then we have
    control of Zidane again.
    
    Now, go down the stairs in the southwestern part of the room. This will bring
    you back to the four yellow light room. If you try to examine one of them, they
    will finally respond. However, you have to touch them in a certain order to
    proceed with the walkthrough. Go up the stairs and touch the upper left one.  A
    ship will appear and Zidane will mumble some words. Touch the upper right one to
    see a different image and different dialogue. Now go back down the stairs and
    touch the lower right one. Same swing, same thing. Touch the last yellow light
    in to the lower left. This will conclude the annoying lights. You should have
    gone in this order: Upper Left, Upper Right, Lower Right, Lower Left. This is a
    "clockwise" order.
    
    If you were paying attention to the pictures and dialogue, you will find out
    that the ship is the Invincible. Now, go back to the upper area in the four
    light room. Go to the right and you will see steps. Walk into the next area.
    Follow this familiar path until you reach the circular platform with the grey
    ball. It will be glowing. Have Zidane touch it, and you will see some images.
    You will see an image of Terra, and Zidane will talk about its decline. Now
    follow the path you are on north to the next screen. Then follow the path until
    you go back to the area with the yellow light pit. Now go right and back to the
    entrance.
    
    Okay, now that you are back at the entrance, take the southeastern path. This is
    the moogle area, along with having lightened up triangle on the ground. Run over
    and down to the triangle, then get on top of it. Zidane will say something about
    light. Now, go back up the stairs to the left and go north a little to find a
    chest. Get the Gaia Gear, and then go back to the entrance. Then take the lower
    right doorway back to the yellow pit room with Gaia projecting. Go around Gaia's
    projection and up. You will see a yellow door to the right and blue door dead
    north. Take the blue door, which was locked, and now open!
    
    Zidane will walk inside and we will see a bunch of mask faces. It's spooky at
    best. A mask will turn orange and speak in an incomprehensible language. Then it
    will start to speak in their minds. Just watch as events unfold. Take good
    notice and reread the dialogue if you have to; it's important stuff. Now
    backtrack to the entrance (after the gates). Then take the left path back to the
    two moogles. You will see that Stiltzkin has left. Save and tent at the moogle,
    then go to the northeastern part of the room. You will have to go all the way
    around the circular lower area. About halfway there you will see two planets
    become one. Then go through the northeastern doorway.
    
    You will see a blue platform and a deep shaft. Before you continue, make sure
    everyone has the Clear Headed and Auto-Potion abilities equipped. Auto-Potion is
    for the obvious reason that it will help you survive this next boss fight. Clear
    Headed is because the next boss has a devastating attack that will make everyone
    confused. Also have Zidane equipped with Bandit and Mug. This next boss has
    great items. This will block it, and make the fight a hell of a lot easier. Now,
    get on the platform and you will see a FMV of Zidane going down. Once you reach
    the bottom, go north a little and press X at the field icon. Something will open
    and it seems to be the Gulug Stone. Before he can get it and run a boss jumps
    him.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Ark
    HP: 20000
    Steal: Power Vest, Holy Lance
    Party: Zidane (34), Steiner (34), Amarant (34), Quina (30)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 30. (I was at 34.)
    ------------  *  All characters must have the Clear Headed ability equipped.
                     This will make this fight a lot easier.
                  *  All characters must have the Auto-Potion ability equipped.
                  *  Zidane should have the Bandit and Mug abilities equipped.
                  *  You should have a healthy supply of Hi-Potions and Pinwheels
                     at hand in this fight.
    
    Overview:  People say Ark is the best, but he isn't. Sure, he is pretty tough
    ---------  if you are asleep, but if you aren't, this battle should be easy.
               Ark has around 20000 HP, and when you physically attack him you will
               do a lot less damage then you would do to a regular enemy. This
               might be because he is in the back row, or because he has high def-
               ense. I do not know. What I do know is that he is somewhat a push-
               over. Since you can't use magic, all magician characters are use-
               less. Well, let me tell Square this: We don't need no stinkin'
               magic! We will do fine with just physical attacks. The Ark doesn't
               have anything up his sleeves besides four attacks, and one will
               be completely useless. If you prepared right, this will be a fun
               and easy fight.
    
    Attacks:  *  Photon is his most powerful attack in this fight. It will bring
    --------     any characters HP to 1. This is a crucial attack. Even if you have
                 someone with 2500 HP or 500 HP it will always bring it down to 1.
                 The good thing is he doesn't tend to abuse this often. You might
                 find it 1-2 times in the whole battle. Auto-Potion and a healer
                 should almost make a opposite effect. Of course, this only hits
                 one character.
    
              *  Whirlwind is another deadly attack if you don't have everyone with
                 Auto-Potion and Hi-Potion. It will do around 350 damage to every-
                 one in the party. This can be devastating or easy. If you have
                 what I said, then it will be healed up before he can even attack
                 again. If not, you might find yourself kicking the TV.
    
              *  Boomerang might wreak havoc on a party member if you don't heal.
                 It will do in the vicinity of 450 damage to one character. This
                 can be bad if he does it on a weak character, or a character with-
                 out Auto-Potion. It also can be bad if he uses it after he uses
                 Photon. Overall, though, you will want to get hit by this attack
                 as a Hi-Potion will recover all the lost damage.
    
              *  Propeller Wind is probably one of the most annoying attacks in the
                 whole game. It inflicts the Confusion status upon all party
                 members. This is very bad. You will see your powerhouse characters
                 hitting and killing each other. It's sad to watch your party kill
                 each other. With all the power your team has, one hit should KO
                 one of your party members. This is why you have to have Clear
                 Headed equipped. It will put a Guard up against this and render
                 this attack useless. If everyone has Clear Headed, you will want
                 to see this attack. It doesn't do any damage, all it does is try
                 to inflict the confusion status. If you don't have Clear Headed,
                 this can be a potentially game destroying attack. Like I said, it
                 will make everyone attack each other. The only way to counter it
                 is if someone doesn't get hit with it and heals everyone. This
                 will take it's toll with all the turns wasted, though.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
     Zidane: As you might have noticed, Ark has some of the best items to steal in
             the entire game. Well, just one item. (Holy Lance.) This is a powerful
             lance for Freya that has +62 attack. That's not the only thing, how-
             ever, it also has Dragon Crest. Dragon Crest is a very powerful abili-
             ty for Freya that will make your life a lot easier. The only thing is
             you have a "next to none" chance of stealing it. Make sure you have
             Bandit and Mug on, so you have a better chance of getting it. You will
             also hit for some damage with Mug. It really is a hard item to get,
             but worth it. If you don't want to steal, then have Zidane stick to
             physically attacking. You will do less damage to the Ark then a
             regular enemy. If your Thievery skill does more damage then have him
             do that. Zidane is a pure attacker/stealer.
    
    Amarant: Amarant is the "star" and all-star of this battle. Even though his
             physical attacks might not do much damage, his throws sure will! Throw
             the Rising Sun you collected before the fight. You will be amazed by
             how much damage it will do. Then, stick to throwing Pinwheels or any
             powerful weapon that you might have more then two of. The better the
             power on the weapon, the more damage it will do when thrown. I would,
             however, just stick to Pinwheels as they are somewhat inexpensive and
             are what Amarant should really be throwing. If you run out of throwing
             items, then Amarant should be a pure attacker. If you have an extra
             turn with him and don't want to attack, use the Chakra flair. It will
             restore some of a party members HP and MP. An all-star, he is.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's brutal physical attacks are what is going to make this fight
             go by fast. Even though the Ark has some major defense, Steiner still
             pulls through in the clutch and does some major damage. You will find
             out that all of his Sword Arts suck, so do not bother to use them.
             Stick to attacking all the way. However, if he uses Photon on you, you
             might want to use the Darkside ability. This will restore all the HP
             you hit the Ark with. Darkside will make the Ark hitting Steiner a
             complete and utter joke.
    
      Quina: This is the last person you _should_ have in this battle. Quina is
             basically the healer of the battle. S/he is responsible for the
             healing of every character. Hi-Potions are a must, even though s/he
             doesn't have Chemist. I also advise that you give at least Quina Clear
             Headed, so s/he can heal everyone. If you find a open slot for Quina
             to attack, you will find out that you cannot use Blue Magic. (Even
             though you can use Flairs.) I would advise you would just pass Quina's
             turn and wait until someone gets some damage inflicted on them. If you
             do not want to wait, then just physically attack Ark.
    
      Freya: This is the last person you _should_ have in this battle. Freya is
             basically the healer of the battle. She is responsible for the healing
             of every character. Hi-Potions are a must, and she really should
             have Chemist. I also advise that you give at least Freya Clear Headed,
             so she can heal everyone. If you find a open slot for Freya to
             attack, you will find out that you cannot use Dragon Skills. (Even
             though you can use Flairs.) I would advise you would just pass Freya's
             turn and wait until someone gets some damage inflicted on them. If you
             do not want to wait, then just physically attack Ark. Do not, I
             repeat: Do not Jump in this battle. You will have to waste a turn with
             no healing. That bad.
    
       Vivi: All magician characters in this battle are very useless. They cannot
             use their powerful magic to destroy the Ark. It is highly unadvisable
             to bring them into battle. However, if you decide to, then they should
             stick to healing all the other party members. If you really wanted to
             bring a magician character then make sure they have the Chemist abil-
             ity so they do double the potency of magic.
    
     Dagger: All magician characters in this battle are very useless. They cannot
             use their powerful magic to destroy the Ark. It is highly unadvisable
             to bring them into battle. However, if you decide to, then they should
             stick to healing all the other party members. If you really wanted to
             bring a magician character then make sure they have the Chemist abil-
             ity so they do double the potency of magic. I recommend Dagger because
             she can learn/has the Chemist ability. However, she might screw up and
             not heal. So she isn't the best bet.
    
       Eiko: All magician characters in this battle are very useless. They cannot
             use their powerful magic to destroy the Ark. It is highly unadvisable
             to bring them into battle. However, if you decide to, then they should
             stick to healing all the other party members. If you really wanted to
             bring a magician character then make sure they have the Chemist abil-
             ity so they do double the potency of magic.

    After the long boss battle you will be back in the same small room. Go up to the
    mantle and take the Gulug Stone. Then we will go back to the Desert Palace and
    see how everyone else is doing.

    Kuja will talk on the intercom again to everyone. He will tell you that as the
    hourglass' sand fades, the lava pit in the bottom will open. Then he will say
    that Zidane only has ten minutes to get back here and stop the hourglass to save
    the team. Eiko, of course, acts like a child with Mog. Cid hears this, and
    decides to help. As he is walking down, he will see some black mages. They will
    talk about deactivating the trap by turning on all the traps. This is terribly
    advice, and you should ignore it completely. Now, you have control of Cid.
    Controlling Cid is a bit... froggish. Go down the bridge and hang a right; the
    room that the black mages just walked out of.
    
    This is probably the toughest mini-game in the whole game. It's annoying as
    hell, also. You have to make it across a room without getting caught by the
    hedgehog in the cage. He will glance back at you every couple of seconds. All he
    looks for is movement, however. Cid will be so still that the hedgehog won't
    know someone is in the room. He turns his head a lot. While his back is facing
    you press O four-five times quickly. Then he should look back at you. Keep doing
    this until you make it to the end. What's the hard part? His glances back are
    sometimes irregular at best. Sometimes he might look back quickly, and sometimes
    slowly. It all depends on how well you did last time. If he almost saw movement,
    then he will go back quickly. If he didn't, then you can get four-five O's in.
    It all depends on how well you can do it. I suggest that you go slowly, and try
    not to be a speed demon. You only have six minutes, however. Just don't do what
    I did the first time; I tapped slower then hell and ended up losing. You have to
    tape FAST and ACCURATELY. You also only have 6 minutes to complete this. If you
    run out of time you can try again without fighting the Ark, however. If he sees
    you then Cid will run away like a coward.
    
    Now, the time isn't over yet. You have to get up to the hourglass!  This is
    hard, considering Cid's current state. So, what do you do? Do you see the scale
    over there? If you put the correct weights on it, Cid will be able to get up on
    the Hourglass shelf and thus save your team's lives. Cid will already have this
    idea when you start. You then have three choices. You can look at the scale,
    look at the weight, or put weights on. If you have less then two minutes left,
    then skip straight to putting weights on. If you don't, then you can look at the
    weights first to see if they are the same way every time. The three heaviest are
    Iron, Clay, and Stone. So, if you put these on the scale they will go up higher.
    After you look at them, when you go to the choices they will turns from A, B, C,
    and D to the actual types. Choose B, C, and D if you didn't have enough time, or
    Iron, Clay, and Stone if you looked at them. The first time I went through this
    I was off by a couple seconds. Cid was putting the last weight on. It sucked.
    
    Cid will save your friends and they will all reunite. Then we will have control
    of the four misfits that you decided not to bring to Oeilvert. Eiko, weirdly,
    will be the leader of the party. I would think that Vivi would hold that slot,
    but who knows. Anyway, it's time to equip everyone with all the items you have
    bought. Also equip Dagger with the Aquamarine so she can learn the Leviathan
    summon. This will be very useful in the upcoming boss fight. After this, go back
    right. I know, I know, back to the hedgehog. When you get there, it seems he has
    been replaced with a moogle. It's so nice of Kuja to lay a moogle down for us.
    You can buy items and deliver a letter from the moogle. Also, save your game.
    Then go back left to the previous room.
    
    Now let us talk about the enemies of this area. Ogre's are pretty powerful, but
    will go down in a couple magic hits. Grimlock's are all crappy magic and no
    play. All they cast is Sleep, Slow, and Silence. Give a character a "love tap"
    to get rid of Sleep. This should be easy with all these Magician characters.
    They also have Red (Physical) and Blue (Magic) forms. Hit the opposite of the
    form. Torama's are pretty tough. They cast Bio and Poison. I hate'em because
    they come in two's. Hack away with magic and physical attacks. Just have
    everyone throw magic back at them. Lastly, we have Drakans. Drakan's use all
    types of powerful magic that will severely weaken you. They have Freeze and
    Mustard Bomb in their arsenal of attacks. They both stop a character from
    fighting, one being critical. Remember to heal as necessary against all of these
    guys. You can't Flee, either.
    
    All right, back to the guide. Now that you are back to the dungeons, go left.
    Follow the hall and go up the stairs. In this room you will see two angel
    statues. Light the candles by the left angel, then inspect the glowing red light
    by the right angel. Choose to take the Bloodstone and you will get a Promist
    Ring. Now, continue north. In the next area, you will see three statues ahead of
    you. Two will look like men, while the middle is a beautiful angel. Examine the
    one on the right, the one on the left, then the angel statue. Now try to leave
    the room by going left and magical stairs will appear. Now, go over to the
    magical stairs and follow them to another room. This happens to be one of the
    first room's balconies. Light the candle here, and then go back down the magical
    stairs.
    
    Go left at the three statues. You will be in a nicely furnished room. Whoever
    thought Kuja would make such a nice place! He only babbles about plays on and on
    and on. Anyway, go up the stairs and you will notice gold candles. They look
    more like oversized wineglasses. Light the three on the side you are on. You
    will notice that two doors have _magically_ opened. Walk through the door on
    your side that opened. In the next room you will be on a balcony. Just go over
    and in the door on the other side. You will find yourself on the opposite side
    of the room that you light the three candles in. There are three more candles on
    this side of the room. Light all three, and one of the statues that were
    blocking the middle will open. Now you can go to the middle!
    
    Afterward, blow out the upper right and lower right candles. These are both on
    the right side of the room. (Where you are at currently.) Leave the middle one
    lit. You will see that both doors are now reopened and some statues were taken
    out. Now go up to the reopened door and back to the balcony. Then go back to the
    other side. From here, go to the center area of the room that was blocked. Light
    the two candles in the center room. You cannot light the candle below yet. After
    you light both of them, all the statues will be gone. Light the two remaining
    candles on the right side to make eight. Then, go back to the middle and down
    the steps. Then light the last candle that you couldn't light before. Now a tray
    in the middle of room, under the statue, will be lit with a purple color. Walk
    up to it and inspect the light for an Anklet. Now you will see that the
    rightmost door is now open. Go through it.
    
    In this hallway you will see one lit candle and a Blood Stone container. It's
    not lit up yet, though. Go past it and hug the right wall until you see a field
    icon. Light the candle then inspect the Blood Stone for Shield Armor. Now follow
    the hallway circular until you reach its end. Then go up the stairs just a
    little south of the dead end. In this area, light the candle by the stairs. Then
    follow the balcony to Kuja's private library. You can find Shakespeare, err...
    You can continue the game here. I didn't have any random encounters in this room
    at this time, so don't sweat the random battle stuff. Go to the left by the
    statue and light the candle. You will see that a ladder has appeared. Ignore it,
    and go to the southeast corner of the room. You will see stairs. Go up them and
    light the candle at the end. A bookcase will open up to reveal another doorway.
    Go through it.
    
    In the next room you will find a Blood Stone on the balcony in plain view.
    Collect the bracer that it has to offer. You will receive a N-Kai Armlet. This
    is a very important item in this game. It gives Vivi the Water spell which does
    a surprisingly amount of damage. And against the upcoming weakness versus Water
    boss, it will be vital to victory. Now go back to the library and down to the
    bottom floor. Go up the ladder to floor two of the bookshelf. Light the candle
    at the other side of the shelf. Again, the bookshelf in this platform will rise
    and reveal a doorway. Go through another one.
    
    You will be at a balcony with stairs going up. Go up the stairs. As you go up,
    you should pass by two candles. Light both of them. Then go back down to the
    library and go down the ladder to the bottom floor. You should see a candle by
    the right statue. Light it, and it will have the same effect on the bookcase.
    You know what to do. Once you are inside the secret doorway, light the candle in
    the small balcony. When you go back to the library room, you will here a moogle.
    Go to the left passed the fake stained glass to find Mogsam the moogle. Talk to
    him about Mognet and give him his letter. Then tent and save the game. Now
    continue left passed the moogle.
    
    You will be on a platform with two candles, a statue, and a doorway. Light both
    of the candles and get the Black Hood after you inspect the Blood Stone. It's
    the purple light in the middle of this platform. You might notice that the same
    thing is on the other side. Go through the doorway and follow the balcony to
    *gasps* the other side! Light all three candles on this side and inspect the
    Blood Stone in the southern part of this platform. You will get a Venetia
    Shield.
    
    Before you run over to the other side, it's time to let this walkthrough kick
    in. While you are on the left side, unlight the left candle. It will be the
    middle of the three, but left of the statue. Now, go back to the other side and
    unlight the left candle there. A magical stairway will appear. Before you fight,
    get everyone healed and prepared. Save back right at the moogle if you must.
    Then go up the magical stairs. You will be a grand hallway, but it's very
    straightforward (North) to the candle. Try to light it and a defense system will
    attack you.

    Boss Name: Valia Pira
    HP: 12000
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Eiko (33), Vivi (33), Freya (30), Quina (33)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 30. (I was higher.)
    ------------  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions.
                  *  If any of your characters are all ability'd out, meaning they
                     don't have anything to learn, throw a Coral Ring on them.
                  *  Dagger must have Aquamarine equipped. (For Leviathan.)
                  *  Vivi must have the N-Kai Armlet equipped. (For Water.)
                  *  Eiko should have a Phoenix Pinion equipped. (For Phoenix.)
                  *  Dagger/Eiko should have Reflect.
                  *  If you, by accident, have Amarant in your party, get a healthy
                     supply of Rising Suns and Pinwheels.
    
    Overview:  This is one easy battle if you were smart and disabled all the Blood
    ---------  Stones like I did in this walkthrough. All his enhancements will be
               gone, meaning he will be a lot easier. Instead of having high stats
               he will have normal, easy stats. This makes the battle a lot easier,
               as instead of hitting him for 1000 damage you will hit him for 2500
               damage. In the beginning of the battle he will undoubtedly cast
               reflect on himself. This means that if you use Magic (not Skills or
               Eidolons) on him he will reflect them back to you. How do you stop
               this? Cast reflect on one of the party members. My Vivi had Auto-
               Reflect, so I didn't need to waste a turn to cast it. Now, when you
               want to attack him with magic, target the person that has reflect
               on. You think I might be crazy but I am not. It will reflect off of
               that person and hit Valia Pira. It will not reflect back! This is
               a small loophole in this fight. Now that you have a way to use
               magic, this battle should be pretty simple.
    
    Attacks:  *  Firaga is a element type damage that does around the same amount
    --------     of damage as the other two. It will hit you for around 750 damage,
                 so it's not a big deal. He abuses these attacks because it is all
                 he really has to fight with. If you have a Coral Ring or something
                 else that absorbs this type of damage, he will heal you. This is
                 absolutely great if you ever get low on HP. Also, Valia Pira is to
                 stupid to use magic on himself when fighting, so if he hits a re-
                 flected character it will go back to him. Some of these attacks he
                 is Guarded against, however.
    
              *  Blizzaga is a element type damage that does around the same amount
                 of damage as the other two. It will hit you for around 750 damage,
                 so it's not a big deal. He abuses these attacks because it is all
                 he really has to fight with. If you have a Coral Ring or something
                 else that absorbs this type of damage, he will heal you. This is
                 absolutely great if you ever get low on HP. Also, Valia Pira is to
                 stupid to use magic on himself when fighting, so if he hits a re-
                 flected character it will go back to him. Some of these attacks he
                 is Guarded against, however.
    
              *  Thundaga is a element type damage that does around the same amount
                 of damage as the other two. It will hit you for around 750 damage,
                 so it's not a big deal. He abuses these attacks because it is all
                 he really has to fight with. If you have a Coral Ring or something
                 else that absorbs this type of damage, he will heal you. This is
                 absolutely great if you ever get low on HP. Also, Valia Pira is to
                 stupid to use magic on himself when fighting, so if he hits a re-
                 flected character it will go back to him. Some of these attacks he
                 is Guarded against, however.
    
              *  Reflect is magic that will do no damage to you at first. He will
                 cast it on himself. Now, if you use magic on him it will bounce
                 back to you. This can be very bad if you let it be. Have someone
                 cast Reflect on one of your party members, then have them bounce
                 magic off of that party member to attack him.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
       Eiko: Eiko's main duty is what she does best; Healing. You should have Cure/
             Cura/Life currently, so use them prudently. (Wisely.) Her Cure spells
             heal A LOT of damage. Cure does around 600 while Cura does around
             1200. Try to use Cure on the small stuff and Cura if Valia Pira's at-
             tacks build up. If you lose some party members but Eiko is still
             standing, have her cast Phoenix. This will do Fire bases damage on
             Valia Pira but more importantly it will revive any fallen characters.
             Lastly, have Eiko use Reflect at the beginning of the battle on one
             character. If she has any free moves try to cast reflect on every
             person in your party. Then any attack that he throws at you will be
             thrown back!
    
       Vivi: Vivi has one of the most important roles in this party. He is the main
             attacker. After someone has Reflect up, have him cast Water on him.
             It will bounce off of them and hit Valia Pira. Water does major dam-
             age; Even more then the 'ra's. You will find out that Vivi can take
             a serious chunk of his HP away in one blow. Just remember not to
             use Magic on Valia Pira directly if he has Reflect up. If he runs out
             of MP don't hesitate to use a Ether. (You shouldn't.)
    
      Freya: Freya is really the wildcard of this battle; She has no real thing
             that she will stick to. She should be using Lancer until she runs out
             of MP. This should be after 6-7 turns of Lancer; he should be dead
             by then. Remember that Lancer is a skill, not magic, so you don't have
             to do the Reflect trick. When she runs out of MP, have her Jump like
             crazy. She is a good backup healer, also. Have her throw Hi-Potions
             with her Chemist ability for 900 damage healed!
    
     Dagger: Dagger's role in this fight is simple. Her main focus in the beginning
             is to actually cast Reflect on everyone in the party. Then, have her
             be summoning Leviathan. This will do major damage to Valia Pira! She
             should recast it until her MP runs out. Leviathan rarely misses so
             don't worry about that. Dagger is also a parttime healer when the
             party gets on E. Oh, and before we continue, let us address her con-
             centration failure. Sometimes, she will not attack because of the
             tragedies that have happened in her life. (Obviously.) So she really
             is not a dependable character at this point. If she doesn't attack it
             is really no big deal.
    
     Zidane: You cannot have Zidane in this fight, even if you wanted him to. He
             has to go to Oeilvert.
    
    Amarant: Amarant's role in this battle is similar to what it will be in any
             other boss fight you might have him in. This role is to throw Rising
             Suns and Pinwheels until the cows come home. You will be amazed by the
             damage that he will do with these. Even if you didn't get the Blood
             Stones it will do a lot of damage. If you are out of them, then have
             him attack physically.
    
    Steiner: You should of had Steiner go with you to Oeilvert! If you didn't, then
             I'll tell you his role. It's very simple. Attack. He does major damage
             every hit. If he gets low on HP have him use Darkside to restore his
             HP. All the damage he does to the enemy will absorb into his health
             and thus make him very healthy.
    
      Quina: You didn't really leave Quina... did you? If you did, then s/he will
             have to heal during this fight. You won't have 1,000 needles so s/he
             s/he won't have any real attack in this fight. All s/he will do is
             heal everyone. Attack with Quina if you have a free turn.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After you terminate the defense system, you will be back to Eiko. Light the last
    candle and we will finally be over with this light the candle game! Hooray! No
    more candle lighting! This was almost as bad as Gargan Roo for Christ sakes!
    After lighting the candle, go down the steps to the shining floor. You will now
    teleport somewhere and we will go back to Zidane. Now, follow the bridge to the
    paths then follow the paths to the teleport pad. It is the blue circle thing at
    the end of the path. Press X on top of it. Now, before we continue, I would just
    like to say that I am so happy that we don't have to fight with magic users
    anymore! It's like I've just gotten out of a small box that I have been in for
    all my life. I hope you feel the same way.
    
    In this next room, Kuja will tell you to inside the following room alone. If you
    talk to any of your party, they will tell you that it is a trap but you have to
    go. Walk up the stairs and through the doorway. Zidane will meet Kuja. Zidane
    will be his usual badass self. Kuja will show him four dead people on the
    ground, these are the remaining four party members. They are all "resting"
    eternally. They are just Epitagh clones, however. Kuja will then demand the
    stone. Back to the remaining three party members, everyone will be worried as
    hell. Well, just Steiner, really. Quina will be trying to eat a statue and
    Amarant is trying to look cool again. Then a telepod shines blue...
    
    See, I told you they were just clones! Or are THOSE the clones!? Nah, I'm just
    messing with you. Everyone will run inside to Zidane's aid except Eiko, who will
    get cornered by Zorn and Thorn. Back inside, we will see Zidane have one of his
    tantrums. At the climax, Kuja asks for a stone and Vivi yells not to give it to
    him. All the party members will run in and Kuja will say that the ones inside
    the cage are just Epitagh clones. I told you. Zidane and others seem to have the
    upper hand, but we hear Zorn and Thorn capture Eiko. They squish Cid along the
    way. Then Kuja escapes with his precious. (Gulug Stone.)
    
    Now you can pick four party members. Choose Zidane, Amarant, Steiner, and Vivi
    if you want a powerful party. It really is advisable because the other three
    aren't nearly as good and Eiko is missing. Now, before we leave the room GET THE
    NAMINGWAY CARD!!! This is a forgettable item, and you won't be coming back to
    Kuja's place so you won't be able to get it from this point on. It is by the
    books on the table in the southern part of this room. Then, go south to the
    previous area. Go south again to the telepod area. Take the south (Or left)
    telepod back to where Hilda Garde I was stationed.
    
    Follow the path to the bridge. You will notice that the Hilda Garde I is not
    here. Go north and you will reach another screen. Zidane will say that Kuja got
    away on the airship. Then, pull the lever on this little brown platform and a
    ladder will swing down. Go down it, and then go to the northwestern part of this
    erosion area. You will be able to the next erosion area. Then, follow the area
    north to another screen. Then we will see the Hilda Garde I flying to the Lost
    Continent. The Blue Narciss will have amazingly caught up to it! Then we will go
    to the ship and see some dialogue. Then we will be able to choose party members
    again. Choose Zidane, Amarant, Steiner, and Vivi. Finally, we will be back on
    the world map!
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Before we enter Esto Gaza I would like you to look around this little continent
    a little bit. Also, I would like you to fight around here until you find a
    friendly Feather Circle. He will want a Moonstone. Give it to him for major AP.
    Then, I would like all of the characters you have to at least 35 before we enter
    Esto Gaza. Call this cautious, but I would like them in the vicinity of that
    level. When I entered Esto Gaza, I had Zidane at 37, Amarant at 36, Steiner at
    37, and Vivi at 35. When you are ready, enter the doom like building on the
    western part of this Continent.

    Sadly, the only enemy you can fight here are those annoying birds called
    Garudas. They shouldn't be hard to beat at your current level. They sometimes
    cast Firaga, but that's no big deal with Hi-Potions/Auto-Potion. Which you
    should have right now. If you don't, you best leave and look in my ability
    section to find out how to get it; you will definitely want it here. Also,
    Garudas have stop which _can_ be annoying sometimes. You cannot work around
    this, besides Reflect of course.
    
    Anyway, at the entrance go inside the building to the northwest. Once inside,
    Zidane will talk to the Bishop. He will tell you about Kuja and his army of
    black mages going to Mount Gulug. He says that one of them was carrying a little
    girl. Go into the area to the right. You will be in a shop. If you bought items
    from here before Black Mage Village they will be better this time around.
    Getting all this new equipment is a must. You should have the money to buy it
    with. If you don't, you'd best be going outside and fighting more monsters.
    Also, make sure to buy an Octagon Rod for Vivi; you won't be able to buy one in
    disc four yet it is crucial to getting level 3 magic.
    
    You can find a Wind Edge if you go around the shop and to the other side of the
    counter in this room. You should be on the right side where books are. Search to
    the right to find it. Now, before we leave here, you might want to rest. The
    Bishop, stubborn as he may be, offers this service for you. The small price of
    100 Gil is in question, however. Now, go left a little and up the stairs. Head
    forward until you hit a moogle. Save your game and ask him about Mognet. Then go
    right and we will be at Mount Gulug.

    Mount Gulug makes Fossil Roo look like a walk in the park. It is a huge
    labyrinth with high level enemies. In short, it is another "hell." Anyway, let's
    talk about these enemies! They all are very tough with tons of HP. Wraiths are
    can be a problem if they cast Mustard Bomb. This attack hits a lot, and the next
    turn the person that they inflicted it on will be dead. This attack completely
    sucks, and might make you want to have Dagger in the party. Vepals do the exact
    same thing sometimes, but otherwise use their crappy magic. They cast one
    specific attack on you over and over, but it doesn't do much damage. Grenades
    are very strong enemies. They have an attack called Flame, which inflicts a lot
    of damage on a character. My Zidane had 900 damage tacked off of him with this
    attack alone. They also cast Firaga for around 600 damage and Cannon for
    anywhere between 500-2000 damage. However, they tend to abuse Flame a lot, so
    you might not ever see Firaga. Lastly we have the Worm Hydra. They are very
    tough enemies that inflict a lot of status effects on you. I had Mini and other
    stuff inflicted on me when I fought them. They are tough!
    
    From the get go, decide to go west at the fork. You will be in a two-story house
    complete with its own ladder. On floor one, go down to the southeastern corner
    of the room and pick up the Gil. It should be around 10,000 Gil, I am forgetful.
    Afterwards, go up the ladder and get the Ether near the rubble. Then go back
    down the ladder and east, back to the fork. Now, take the other house, which is
    to the east. Go east out of that room, and then press X at the field icon near
    the well. Zidane will jump onto a rope. Slide down the rope and go east at the
    fork. You will find yourself in a room with a moogle. Save the game, ask about
    Mognet, and tent if you are low on HP. Go directly opposite of the moogle, to
    the southeastern corner of the room, and pick up the Wind Edge.
    
    Now take the doorway to the east. Follow this path until you reach the end.
    Collect the Gaia Gear, and then go back to the well's rope and the fork. Before
    you do so, equip everyone with Gold Chokers so Wind damage is reduced by 50%.
    Halfway back you are forced to fight a battle with two Red Dragons. These
    Dragons are very tough if you didn't heal up beforehand, or don't know how to
    fight them. First off, they have a weakness to Ice. Abuse this by having Vivi
    cast Blizzaga on them for around 5000 damage. Amarant can finish the one that
    Vivi got with a Rising Sun, or he can attack with Zidane. They both have around
    7000 HP, which is not too shabby. Steiner should just attack. They cast some bad
    moves like Twister and Wind. They do a lot of damage, especially Twister. Keep
    on your A game at all times; Remember, there is a moogle that you will see to
    tent momentarily. Also, if you got an Octagon Rod for Vivi, you cannot lose this
    battle. Vivi will absorb all the wind damage the Red Dragons can muster.
    
    After the fight, remember to equip your regular add-ons back on. Then walk back
    to the moogle and save the game. Also, Tent as needed. Return to the fork with
    the well and the rope. Next, take the left path. Follow it until you reach a
    small house. Look around for a treasure chest, it should be close to the
    entrance. You will receive a Demon's Mail when you find it. Don't equip this on
    Steiner because it will bring down your magic statistic. All we fight in this
    place are magic enemies, so there is no need to make your magic defense lower.
    Then go back outside the house.
    
    A little north of it you should see a door. Enter and you should see a moogle on
    a second floor. Climb the stairs and save at the moogle. You can also buy
    medical items if you are running low on them. At this time you should be, those
    damn enemies should be sucking up all your Hi-Potions like Atomos and Lindblum.
    After you are done buying items, go up the stairs next to the moogle. After
    this, walk over to another house. You will see a treasure chest down the room.
    When you go halfway down, you will fight more Red Dragons. This fight isn't one
    bit harder then the previous battle. How many Red Dragons you fight in this
    battle varies. I fought one so it was fairly easy. Use the same strategy as the
    last one above.
    
    After the fight, go down the room and get the Elixir in the chest. Then go all
    the way back to the well and rope. You might want to save at the moogle, also.
    Once you reach the well, you might notice a lever next to it. Pull it DOWN three
    times. Not up, mind you. On the third time a rope will go down to the bottom of
    this hell. Jump on it, and slide down Zidane-style. Once you reach the bottom,
    circle around the room once and another Red Dragon will fight you. This is
    probably the toughest of the three fights simply because two Red Dragons attack
    you instead of one. You might have fought two before, but there is no way out of
    it now. You know how to kill these little buggers easily, though.
    
    After the battle, go through the open wall that the Red Dragon made. The game
    will take over from there. It seems Kuja signed Zorn and Thorn from the Free
    Agent List for one purpose: To extract the eidolons from Eiko. The party will
    see this, and Dagger will try to rescue her but Zidane stops her. We all know of
    what they are doing unless you were asleep in disc two. We find out that Eiko
    has to be 16 for this extraction thing to work without a hitch. If they
    continue, we might lose a crying little six-year-old!
    
    Kuja will explain the situation to Zorn and Thorn. Garland is making a "plan"
    that will make his soul not his. I think that means he will die. Anyway, he
    needs a powerful eidolon to destroy Garland; His own power fails in comparison.
    He will demand that Zorn and Thorn shut up (repeatedly) and continue the
    extraction process. Before they have a chance Mog will jump out and get in their
    way. He will talk to Eiko, and she will wake up! Then we see Mog communicating
    to Eiko. He says goodbye. Then we see Zidane racing down to get Eiko. Eiko will
    fight Zorn and Thorn. Mog will tell her to summon Madeen. She will, and it will
    tear through Zorn and Thorn. Then we find out that Mog is an eidolon! We get a
    Ribbon, a prized add on that can allow Eiko to summon Madeen! Kuja will come
    back and tell everyone his plan. Then he will leave and Vivi will run after him.
    It seems that Zorn and Thorn are really one, big evil monster that we have to
    fight!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Meltigemini
    HP: 25000
    Steal: Golden Hairpin, Demon's Mail, Vaccine
    Party: Zidane (40), Amarant (40), Steiner (40), Eiko (33)
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 37 with exception to
    ------------     Eiko, who should be at level 33. (I was at 40 because of the
                     mistakes I made in the previous areas. I had to fight a lot
                     of monsters.)
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying.
                  *  Amarant should have a healthy supply of Rising Suns on hand.
                     I want you to have at least 10.
                  *  Eiko should have a Phoenix Pinion equipped. (For Phoenix.)
                     (Because if things get bad you can revive fallen characters.)
                  *  Zidane should have Bandit and Mug equipped.
                  *  Have a healthy supply of Antidotes if you are not at the
                     recommended level.
                  *  Have a strong supply of Remedies even if you are 10 levels
                     past the recommended level. This is because of Venom Powder.
    
    Overview:  This fight can actually be pretty tough! Zorn and Thorn's single
    ---------  form is something not to be taken lightly. They do a lot of damage
               and look hideous doing it. When you begin, you will notice that Vivi
               has been replaced with Eiko. This is not good, since Vivi's attacks
               are a lot better then Eiko's. However, Eiko will keep your party
               in tip top shape with Cura so it's not a very bad tradeoff. In the
               beginning of the fight, Meltigemini tends to cast Venom on everyone.
               This is awful because it will take away around 200 damage every
               single turn. These turns include when you attack, he attacks, and
               Auto-Potion turns. So, you could find some of your characters dead
               just because of Auto-Potion! This is why you have to have a good
               supply of Antidotes. Eiko can cure this poison with them. If you
               have the recommended party then this fight will go by a lot easier
               because they should have tons of HP. Meltigemini was a medium boss
               for me, mainly because I was at a healthy level 40. I don't expect
               you to be here; It took me a lot of fights to scout the past couple
               of areas. This fight should go by fairly quickly if you have ten
               Rising Suns. However, if he abuses Venom Power you might find your-
               self restarting the game.
    
    Attacks:  *  Venom Powder is the toughest attack in his arsenal. It will do
    --------     around 500 damage to one character and inflict the Venom status
                 upon that character. This might not seem bad, the 500 damage, that
                 is, but it is more about the Venom status. See, Venom is a very
                 strong poison that will not only take down your HP and MP abusive-
                 ly but will also disallow the character to attack. This means that
                 you cannot control the character for the rest of the battle. This
                 completely sucks. He tends not to abuse this, but I saw it twice
                 in the battle. It is very, very, VERY bad to have Venom. It never
                 misses, either. Overall, this is Meltigemini's worst and most
                 powerful attack.
    
              *  Viral Smoke takes the second spot in Meltigemini's bag of tricks.
                 The reason why it takes the second spot is because it is a party
                 attack. It will hit the whole party for around 500 damage each.
                 This really is not that bad if you have Auto-Potion with Hi-
                 Potions but I know that most of you still probably don't. If you
                 do not, it can be bad because 500 damage is A LOT of damage for
                 Eiko to take. Also, it gives you a virus. This virus will allow
                 you not to get the 11 AP at the end of the fight. This is really
                 no big deal because you can get the AP some other less crucial
                 time. Lastly, he does this attack a lot.
    
              *  Bio takes the third spot and it is actually a pretty good spell.
                 It will do around 500 damage to one character and give them the
                 Poison status. This will tick away around 200 damage per turn.
                 By turn, I mean every time you take a turn and the enemy takes a
                 turn. This includes Auto-Potion time. So every time the party does
                 Auto-Potion from Viral Smoke it will take away 800 damage. That
                 is just awful so have someone throw a Antidote to heal this very
                 bad status effect. If you don't have any, then just have Eiko use
                 her turns to heal you.
    
              *  Wing is probably the worst attack in Multigemini's arsenal. It
                 doesn't inflict any status effects or anything, which is a major
                 plus. It also doesn't hit the party! You might be jumping up and
                 down now. I would also. It does around 600 damage to Dagger, Eiko,
                 or Quina and 500 damage to Zidane, Amarant, Freya, or Steiner.
                 This is the attack that you will want to see during battle. Even
                 if it hits Eiko, it is a lot worse then the other three attack he
                 has. It can easily be healed by Cura or Auto-Potion. The sad part
                 is that in my fight I only saw this attack twice.
    
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Zidane's not an all-star in this fight, just a stealing advocate. If
             you care to take a look at the items that Multigemini has, you will
             see that they are very good items. Demon's Mail is an advanced armor
             piece for Steiner/Freya. The Golden Hairpin is an advanced head armor
             piece for everyone except Steiner and Freya. The Golden Hairpin is
             extremely valuable because it has Auto-Regen. You will use Auto-Regen
             throughout the entire game so it is very good to learn it when you
             don't have that many abilities to learn. Whereas if you learn it
             before you fight the last battle, you will have 10-20 other abilities
             that you will need. Auto-Regen will keep you in a lot of battles, and
             is probably the best combo in the game when combined with Auto-Potion.
             I'm babbling way too much about Auto-Regen. Anyway, Zidane shouldn't
             have that hard of a time stealing all of the items Multigemini has to
             offer unless you don't have Bandit equipped. You very well should by
             now! You could of learned it at the beginning of the game and in the
             last equipment shop. It had a piece of equipment that had the Bandit
             ability. At any rate, after you are done stealing all the items stick
             to physically attacking the beast.
    
    Amarant: Amarant, yet again, is your all-star. He is turning into a full-time
             but not full-blown hero. Have him throw Rising Suns at Multigemini. It
             will do around 2500 damage each turn! This is pretty spectacular con-
             sidering his regular attacks do around 1000 damage. This is why I told
             you to get 10 Rising Suns; 10 will kill Multigemini's health. If you
             do not have any Rising Suns, use the Wind Edge you got. Afterwards,
             stick to physically attacking.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's role, as you all may know by now, is to attack. His attacks
             will do a lot of damage, around 2000 to be exact. As you can see, if
             you are anywhere near the projected level this fight really is not
             that hard. Since Steiner does not have Vivi in the party, he cannot
             use his highly acclaimed magic sword abilities. If Steiner gets low
             on HP have him use Darkside. As we all know, his health should be up
             and running again after he uses it.
    
       Eiko: Eiko, who you actually have to have in the party, is actually pretty
             good. You won't be able to use Madeen in this fight because you have
             not had a chance to equip it. This doesn't mean Phoenix or Fenrir
             won't do some damage. They will both do around 1000 damage. I highly
             advise that you have Phoenix. It is good to have this eidolon because
             it heals everyone in your party. Anyway, onto Eiko's fullblown duty.
             This duty is simple; Heal. Cura and Cure are always your best friends.
             Use Hi-Potions if you want to use your magic prudently. Eiko can also
             cast Reflect and Shell and whatnot on the party if you want to. Last,
             it is Eiko's job to throw a Antidote and Remedy at the people who
             have Venom/Poison. These are two very powerful attacks, so don't take
             Eiko's job lightly. You would probably want to have Eiko hold by
             pressing triangle until someone gets inflicted with these status eff-
             ects. Also, if you by-happen to chance have Mini keep trying to
             inflict it on Mutligemini until it sticks. This will make him
             laughable. However, I do not expect that you have it. You will not
             have had time to equip it beforehand. This is Eiko's role.
    
       Vivi: Vivi cannot be in this fight. He ran after Kuja.
    
     Dagger: Dagger's role is exactly the same as Eiko's. The only thing is that
             she loses concentration, so you might find yourself not getting healed
             and dying. This is why I strongly disprove of having Dagger at this
             time in the game. She is not reliable in the least. Also, Dagger can
             can Reflect to bounce back some of Multigemini's attacks. Multigemini
             has a weakness to Mini. This is extraordinary, considering that most
             bosses (especially good ones) have Guards towards all of the status
             effects. It is Dagger's job to put Mini on him.
    
      Freya: Freya... why did you choose her!? If you did, then have her use Lancer
             or any better skill until she runs out of MP. Then she can proceed to
             Jumping and healing. I advise that you have her be a healer, also,
             because your damage output won't be that great with Freya. She has to
             have Chemist by now so throw Hi-Potions right and left. Also, use
             Reis' Wind if things start to get sticky. This will cast Regen on the
             whole party.
    
      Quina: Quina is actually a pretty solid choice. S/he can use Earthquake,
             White Wind, 1,000 needles, and Mighty Guard. Earthquake is a pretty
             good attack against Multigemini, as it is strong Blue Magic. White
             Wind is good if you find yourself in a bad situation. It will recover
             the party's health by a lot. 1,000 needles is by far one of s/he's
             best attacks, as it will always do 1000 damage. This attack is com-
             pletely reliable, never misses, and doesn't cost much Blue Magic.
             Mighty Guard will lower his defenses, but it costs a lot of MP for
             what it is worth. Also, if you find Quina low on HP use Pumpkin Head
             for some quick, reliable damage. You didn't forget about it, did you?
             It does Quina's full HP minus Quina's current HP. Only use it if you
             are low on HP.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    You just beat Zorn and Thorn again! Vivi will come back and tell you the bad
    news. It seems that Kuja was lying about extending the black mage's lifespan. He
    almost acts disappointed when he says it. You would think that him and all the
    black mage's knew about this, but I guess they never really thought about it.
    Afterwards, a lady calls for someone. Zidane, Dagger, and Eiko run in. The lady
    is in a stunning gown. They talk for a little while, and it seems she knows
    Dagger. Then Cid runs in and we find out that it is Hilda! Everyone makes up,
    and then we go back to Lindblum.

    Hilda and Cid will be alone in the Throne room. Hilda knows a lot about what
    Kuja plans to do, it seems he spilled his guts out to her because he had no one
    to talk to. Well, between the shy black mages and Zorn and Thorn talking like
    nincompoops, I would think the only reliable person he actually could talk to is
    Hilda. It just doesn't make any sense, though. Why would he leave her there? At
    any rate, Hilda still is a hater to Cid for being a skirt-chasing frog. Cid will
    beg Hilda to turn him back, and it seems she doesn't think he is telling the
    truth. After a mutually beneficial agreement, Hilda decides to turn him back.
    She kisses him, and we see Cid's former former self. He actually looks... good.
    Then he says "Gwok" and "Ribbit." He's so hilarious. However, I did like him
    better as a frog and oglop.
    
    Zidane finishes his... fantasy about Dagger. A Soldier wakes him up, and he
    proves my suspicion by talking about the dream a little more. Now, walk over to
    the moogle in the northwestern part of the room. Talk about Mognet and save the
    game. Then go over to the lift. You should know where it is. You have only been
    here around twenty times. If you don't, you need to get your memory checked. Go
    to the top floor, and go through the bottom floor hallway to be in the
    conference room. In the room, Zidane will be shocked to see Regent Cid. It seems
    Zidane still doesn't have any manners and Cid still has the brain of a frog.
    
    Regent Cid says that he needs to continue the construction of another Hilda
    Garde, and leaves. Hilda takes over. She says that Kuja is not from this planet.
    This planet is Gaia, while Kuja calls his birthplace Terra. This comes as a
    shock to everyone. I guess Kuja needed a psychologist and Hilda was the best he
    got. We have an ATE of Tantalus and Steiner. Steiner says that Dagger is missing
    and Baku tells his men to go looking for her. I think Steiner finally sees the
    light at the end of the tunnel! It's only been around 20 years since they
    captured the princess. (With Regent Cid's orders, might I add.)
    
    Back to the conference room, Hilda says that the only way to get to Terra is
    through Shimmering Islands somehow. Kuja said that you need to break a seal to
    make it so you can get to Terra from the Shimmering Islands, however. Hilda
    talks about a castle in the Forgotten Continent where you might be able to break
    the seal. The group decides to call the castle Ispen's Castle, after the famous
    explorer. Then we go to Cid. All the workers find out that Cid is a human again!
    Cid says that they will use the parts of the Blue Narciss for the hull, and that
    he has a blueprint in his head. With him human again, this airship should be
    done in no time!
    
    Hilda will finish talking about Ispen's Castle. There might be something there
    to break the seal so we can go to Terra. Everyone decides to go but they are
    stopped by having no means of transportation to get there. Amarant says that
    even if they got there Kuja is still more powerful then the party. And with
    that, Steiner runs in and tells everyone the bad news. The princess is still
    missing, even after the experts looked for her! Zidane says that he knows where
    she is, and runs out to look for her without saying anything.

    All of Tantalus has gone to Alexandria to look for Dagger. Even the 'enero's and
    Ruby are looking for her. Then we go to Zidane, who is at the docks leading to
    the castle. Baku will say that he found "that chick." Zidane will run with him
    in a hurry. They will see that it is Beatrix, and that she is at the docks.
    Zidane will have a funny sequence, where he won't be able to catch up to
    Beatrix. Beatrix will go to Baku and start to talk to him. They have some funny
    conversation. Then Zidane will run over to Beatrix. They will finish up the
    conversation at the Alexandria docks. It seems that Dagger should be at the
    resting place. Beatrix will tell Zidane to tell Dagger some things, then gives
    him a "Garnet."
    
    The "resting place" is where Queen Brahne was buried. Zidane will speak to
    Dagger and she will respond! It seems she is finally out of her depression!
    Zidane will give her the Garnet. Zidane will say what seems to be something he
    ripped off from a play. Then Dagger will take Zidane's dagger (wow) and go down
    stairs. You would think she is going to kill herself. Seriously, though, she
    just cuts her hair. This is a symbol of a new beginning, however. Zidane nods in
    agreement. To finish the completeness FMV, Cid already has the Hilda Garde III
    up and running! It was easy when he was human again and thought.
    
    Inside the Hilda Garde III, Eiko greets a new Dagger. She thinks that she got a
    new haircut because Zidane did something to her, and of course Steiner questions
    Zidane the same thing. Dagger makes all the suspicions disappear when she talks!
    Erin tells you how to steer the ship and some options that you have with it.
    Then we get to choose a party. I suggest Zidane, Vivi, Steiner, and Eiko. Why
    not Amarant? You will certainly find out. Then we have control of the Hilda
    Garde III. Now you can go almost anywhere and finish up Side Quests. It is
    suggestible that you at least get the Coffee quest and such done.
    
    Now, before we go to Ispen's Castle we have to be extra prepared. Before we go
    to the next place, it is advisable that you go to all the first places you were
    at, like Dali, and buy the worst item for every character. You will find out
    why. This is why I never said to sell weapons. We always need the abilities and
    the thing that's coming up. When you are ready, it's time to go to a place that
    will make you super advanced! Go to the southwestern island on the map. It
    should be south of the Forgotten Continent. (Left Continent.) You will see a
    waterfall and bridge when you find it. Enter.

    This should be the first time you have been to Daguerro unless you acquired a
    Gold Chocobo. This place is a lot of water, and pretty cool. When you enter, if
    you have Dagger in your party, and did all the friendly monsters from the Mu to
    Nymph, go straight north until you hit the Leviathan statue. This is a machine.
    If you put Ores in it, Aquamarines will come out. The more Aquamarines you have,
    the more powerful the Leviathan ability is! After you are done with this, go
    back to the entrance and take the right path. You will go down to water, but
    that never hurt anyone. At the fork in the path, go right. Look around the dead
    end to find Capricorn!
    
    Now, go back to the entrance again. This time take the left path. Inside you
    will find a Cleyra Oracle. Anyway, there is an item shop up top but you have to
    use those three moving platforms to get there. You should see three levers by
    the platforms. Move the left one twice, then examine the hole. Afterwards, go
    back over to the levers. You should see a metal pole next to it. Press X at the
    field icon and Zidane will shove it in. Perfect fit. Now go back over to the
    three levers and pull the right one twice. Then go over to that platform. Press
    X and Zidane will be able to use this as an elevator to get to the equipment
    shop!
    
    Talk to the Hippo person and he will thank you for fixing the elevator. Then you
    will be able to buy great equipment. You should tons of money by now so stock up
    on the equipment completely. If you don't have enough money to get all the
    equipment you need, use the cotton robe trick. All you have to do is buy a Wrist
    (Dali) and Steepled Hat (Lindblum) and synthesis them at Lindblum. It will cost
    1400 to make it, but you can sell it for 2000. When you get enough money, buy 99
    Steepled Hates and Wrists, then synthesis them. You should have infinite money
    now to buy whatever you want.
    
    Make sure that you get all new equipment for everyone. Remember to get a lot of
    Golden Hairpin's, they have the Auto-Regen ability that will make Auto-Potion
    even stronger. Before you get to equipping abilities, go back to the entrance.
    Take the right path again. At the fork, go left. You will be in another library
    room. Talk to the red head. He is called the "Four Armed Man" though he is also
    Alleyway Jack and the person that stole from Dagger. He can tell you your
    treasure hunting rank. Now go up the elevator to the right. There is a moogle
    there to save if you like. Also, there is the second best synthesis shop in the
    game! He is the old man near the elevator.
    
    You can get WONDEFUL items there. (Some of the best in the whole game.) Remember
    to get the Sargatanas, White Robe, and Black Robe at least. Try to get at least
    four of all to add-ons. Now, if you want to explore a little more you can.
    Otherwise, go to the entrance and get back on Hilda Garde III.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    Before I continue, I would like you to get one other thing. Get Quina and Vivi
    in your party and go to Quan's Dwelling. This is a cave near Treno. When you
    enter, go north to a different area. Then go right to the outside of the cave.
    Check the clock and you will receive Running Shoes. These are very valuable as
    they put up your speed by a lot!
    
    Now that you are back on the airship it is time to continue onward with the
    walkthrough. Get to a high altitude. Now, press select and cycle through the
    maps. You want the blown up map that fits the entire screen. If you look in the
    northern part of the Forgotten Continent, you will see a white dot. Get the
    cursor and go over it to find out that this is Ispen's Castle. Now, press X and
    the game will automatically take you there. Let this help you throughout the
    entire game, it is a very good option. When you arrive, there will be a patch of
    grass near the castle. Remember that you cannot land on dirt.

    When you arrive, Zidane will comment on the castle looking to be upside down. It
    is indeed a strange place. The rest of the team will walk to Zidane and Amarant
    will talk. He will say that everyone is dead weight, and he should work alone.
    Zidane and Amarant argue for a little bit, and then Steiner argues as well. In
    the end, he will challenge you to a little game. If you find the seal first, he
    will agree that everyone is not dead weight. If he does, then you have to agree
    that everyone is dead weight. Or at least that is the way I saw it. You can't
    change Amarant's mind, so agree to play his game. Amarant will go inside, and
    you will get to choose your party. I suggest Zidane, Steiner, Vivi, and Eiko
    because they are some of the best characters.
    
    Before we continue, I would like to discuss a very strange thing. It seems that
    this upside down castle has made weapons be that way, also. The weaker your
    weapon is the more damage it will do. This is why I told you to hunt down all of
    your weakest weapons at the world map. You will acquire all of these weapons
    inside the castle, but it's always nice to have them on hand right now. If you
    don't have the worst, then choose the weakest weapon you have for each
    character. Please note that everything beside the weapon is still the same. You
    will want the strongest armor and add-ons you can find.
    
    Now that we have that cleared up, let us talk about the enemies. Gargoyles and
    Agares go together in battles. Gargoyles are stone when the battle begins and it
    is the Agares' job to make him able to fight. Throw a soft at the Gargoyle to
    kill it. Agares are very easy; all they cast is second level magic. Veterans
    tend to cast Doom sometimes, but it misses. They also use Claw. They are no big
    deal. Cerberus uses fire magic, but you should be able to kill them fairly
    easily. Veterans are fairly tough, but they only come in ones. Lastly, Tonberry
    are not very hard to defeat, but have some more HP. Overall, Square wants you to
    jump up some levels by fighting these tough enemies. Don't Flee from them,
    invite them and fight. That's why they have a save moogle in the middle of the
    castle. =)
    
    Okay, back to the guide. Go up the stairs and you will finally enter Ispen's
    Castle. In this first room, you should see six pillars - three on each side. If
    you look behind the pillar on the left side you will pick up a Dagger. Of
    course, equip it. Go over to the right side to find a hidden chest. You will get
    Aquarius. Now head through the open door at the northern area of the room. You
    should see a moogle at the western part of the room. Talk to him about Mognet
    and give him a letter. Afterwards, you can get the second worst weapon at
    Mogshop. Then, save your game and continue.
    
    Go to the northern part of this area and you will see a chest. Get the Cat's
    Claw in it. Then go over to the eastern part of the room and slide down the
    rope. You should be at an area with a chest hanging a weird circular object. Go
    down the little path and over to the ladder at the northern part of the room.
    Once you reach the top, follow the path that Zidane jumped on to the next area.
    This is a small balcony area. Go north and through the door. You will be at a
    ledge with a ladder. Jump on the ladder then go up until you get the choices
    icon. Choose to go right, then walk to the end of this balcony to get Steiner's
    broadsword. Equip it, and then go back to the previous ladder. Jump to the right
    this time. Follow the ledge until you reach a chest. Get the Javelin in it, and
    then walk back to the ladder again.
    
    Go down the ladder this time. When you reach the bottom, Zidane will jump onto a
    ledge. Follow this path until you reach another ladder. Jump onto it, then climb
    up to it until you reach your first field icon. Jump off, and then follow the
    ledge until you see a treasure chest. Collect the rod, and then go back to the
    ladder. Go up the ladder this time. Jump off at the ledge then go inside the
    doorway. Afterwards, you will be in a room with red carpet. Take the elevator
    that looks like a doorway. It is in the northern part of the room. You will see
    Amarant and he thinks he has won. He will leave, saying that he has proved
    himself. Now, go up the steps where Amarant was and examine the four mirrors.
    Zidane will take them as you examine them. Then run back down the steps and we
    will have a boss fight.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Taharka
    HP: 30000
    Steal: Orichalcon, Elixir, Mythril Claws
    Party: Zidane (42), Vivi (42), Steiner (42), Eiko (35)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 40 with exception to
    ------------     Eiko, who should be at level 35. (I was at 42 because of the
                     mistakes I made in the previous areas. I had to fight a lot
                     of monsters.)
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying.
                  *  Vivi should have the Black Robe so he can use Flare.
                  *  Eiko should have a Phoenix Pinion equipped. (For Phoenix.)
                     (Because if things get bad you can revive fallen characters.)
                  *  Eiko should have a Ribbon equipped for Madeen.
                  *  Zidane should have Master Thief, Bandit, and Mug equipped.
                  *  You should have your weakest weapons equipped still.
                  *  Ice absorbing/defending equipment will make this fight sad.
                  *  Everyone should be equipped with their weakest weapons and
                     strongest armor/add-ons.
    
    Overview:  This is a pretty easy boss fight. Why? Taharka doesn't have any
    ---------  attacks in his arsenal that are very good. He doesn't have any good
               status effects that kill players, either. Your characters should be
               more advanced then he is, so it should be easy. Taharka's defenses
               to physical attacks are pretty high, almost like the Ark. You will
               still do a good amount of damage with physical attacks, however. He
               has a tendency to Curl up. When he does, physical attacks don't do
               much damage. It's like you are Mini'd. He usually uses Blizzaga, but
               it is really no big deal. Just third level magic. You might want
               to equip Ice absorbing/defending equipment before the battle.
               There's nothing quite like having him heal you every other turn. You
               also might want to consider equipping the Reflect ability. This will
               bounce Blizzaga back at him.
    
    Attacks:  *  Curl is not really an "attack," but yet it is the worst thing he
    --------     can do. See, Curl is like being Mini'd with physical damage. Your
                 attacks do around 40 damage. He might Curl for a couple turns, so
                 you can either defend, heal up, or fight when he does this. He
                 cannot attack you while he is Curled. He uses this from time to
                 time in battle, usually when you abuse his HP a little.
    
              *  Chop is his second best attack, and that's for one reason. What's
                 the reason? Well, even though Chop is physical damage, it will do
                 a lot of damage. He uses this rarely, however. It only hits one
                 person, also. If it hit the whole party this battle might be a
                 little tougher. All in all, Chop is a powerful attack but just not
                 quite at your level.
    
              *  Ram is a physical attack like Chop but it hits for less. This is
                 his weakest physical attack. It only hits one character for around
                 500 damage. He uses this every once in a while, but don't fret
                 if you don't even see it in the fight. Ram is a pretty pathetic
                 attack. Maybe if they made it so it would hit all the characters
                 it would be better. It is just nothing right now, though.
    
              *  Blizzaga is his only magic spell. It is third level magic, and it
                 does around 500 damage to one character. If you equipped Ice
                 absorb armor, it will give you 500 HP when he does this attack!
                 This is very good, because he uses this attack A LOT. If you get
                 50% reduction to ice armor then it will only do around 250 damage.
                 In my fight I had Reflect on two people in the party. Taharka
                 wanted to hit those two characters with Blizzaga throughout the
                 entire fight, and every single time it backfired on him!
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: I think we all know Zidane's role in this battle: Steal, Steal, and
             Steal! The Orichalcon is one of Zidane's best weapons in the entire
             game. It is worth while to get it now. This item has +71 power but
             sadly has the detect ability. It is definitely worth it to get this.
             It should be a lot easier with Master Thief, Bandit, and Mug. These
             three skills will make stealing it SO much easier. Zidane's sole
             purpose in this battle is to steal until you get it. An Elixir is also
             very good, and you will probably get that before you get the dagger.
             After you have both of those items, Zidane can stick too physically
             attacking Taharka. You might now be saying "What!?" and the reason
             for this is because even though he has high defenses, Zidane will
             still manage to do around 800 damage. When he uses Curl, have Zidane
             use his Thievery skill. This will do a lot of damage on him if you
             have stolen a lot throughout the game. Also use Thievery if it does
             more damage then your physical attacks after he uncurls.
    
       Vivi: Vivi is the all-star of this fight! Have him cast Flare repeatedly on
             Taharka. This will do around 5000 damage! Flare is truly a wonderful
             attack that will save you from a hard battle. It costs 40 MP for each
             usage, so you should be able to use it around 5 times. Flare is a
             truly wonderful attack in this fight. If you don't have Flare then use
             Firaga, or something else. It won't do as much damage but alas, it is
             a substitution! After Vivi runs out of magic, he can defend and what-
             not. Have him heal people up and things like that. Also, you might
             want to cast Slow on him to slow Taharka's attacks down.
    
    Steiner: I found that when my Steiner attacked he only did 40 damage. This was
             with Flare Sword! This might just be a fluke for me or something. If
             it is the case for you, then Steiner should stick to physically att-
             acking. Even though the enemy has high defense, Steiner will still
             manage around 1200 damage. He can be a part time healer, as well. And
             no, you should have your weakest weapons in this battle.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is a powerhouse in this battle. She can use Madeen for around
             3000 damage! This attack will vary; sometimes it will do 2000-4000
             damage. Madeen is a killer skill, but it has a killer MP cost. Use it
             wisely. Also, if you have Boost then please do it. It will make Madeen
             even stronger! Anyway, onto Eiko's fullblown duty. This duty is
             simple; Heal. Cura and Cure are always your best friends. Use Hi-
             Potions if you want to use your magic prudently. Eiko can also cast
             Reflect and Shell and whatnot on the party if you want to. Reflect is
             actually very good because it Reflects Taharka's Blizzaga and it
             hurts him instead of him absorbing it. This is pretty good considering
             that he uses Blizzaga a lot. Only use this on the characters that do
             not have Ice absorbing armor on.
    
    Amarant: Your all-star, Amarant, cannot be in this fight. He left.
    
     Dagger: Dagger has pretty much the same role as Eiko; Heal until your brain
             fries. Dagger has the same spells as Eiko to work with. Dagger might
             be a little more advanced then Eiko, but not in the skills department.
             Even though she has tons of eidolons, they don't compare to Madeen.
             The exception, however, is Leviathan. If you have 20 Aquamarines in
             your inventory then Leviathan will do a little more damage then Eiko's
             Madeen. This is why you might want to trade off Eiko for Dagger. How-
             ever, most people still need Ore's, so it can be bad. Also, Dagger has
             regained her concentration so she will be able to fight every turn
             thus making her pretty reliable.
    
      Freya: Freya... why did you choose her!? If you did, then have her use Lancer
             or any better skill until she runs out of MP. Then she can proceed to
             Jumping and healing. I advise that you have her be a healer, also,
             because your damage output won't be that great with Freya. She has to
             have Chemist by now so throw Hi-Potions right and left. Also, use
             Reis' Wind if things start to get sticky. This will cast Regen on the
             whole party.
    
      Quina: Quina is actually a pretty solid choice. S/he can use Earthquake,
             White Wind, 1,000 Needles, and Mighty Guard. Earthquake is a pretty
             good attack against Taharka, as it is strong Blue Magic. White
             Wind is good if you find yourself in a bad situation. It will recover
             the party's health by a lot. 1,000 needles is by far one of s/he's
             best attacks, as it will always do 1000 damage. This attack is com-
             pletely reliable, never misses, and doesn't cost much Blue Magic.
             Mighty Guard will lower his defenses, but it costs a lot of MP for
             what it is worth. Also, if you find Quina low on HP use Pumpkin Head
             for some quick, reliable damage. You didn't forget about it, did you?
             It does Quina's full HP minus Quina's current HP. Only use it if you
             are low on HP.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, Taharka will chant his two last sentences. "All is one, one is
    all. You'll never break the seal." Now it's time to go all the way to the
    entrance. You should know how to get back there. I won't say so, because it is
    mindless backtracking. When you go up the pole Vivi will almost fall in a trap
    door. Zidane is happy that Vivi is all right. Continue onward to the exit.
    Everyone will go down the stairs to the other three party members. They will
    talk about Amarant a little, and it seems that he has never made it out of the
    castle. Zidane tells everyone to wait here and that he will get him.
    
    From the get go you will have to mindlessly go back to the pole leading down. Go
    north from the entrance and you will be in the pole room. Go to the eastern side
    and slide down. Zidane will hear someone say "Uh..." Is this Amarant? Walk down
    the paths going south. You will see Amarant lying on the ground! They will talk
    a little and Amarant will ask why he came back to get him. Zidane will say that
    it "goes against his nature." Then they will make up and he will be back in the
    team. From here, go back to the entrance. Up the pole, then to the western side
    of the room, and finally south to the outside.
    
    Zidane will gather everyone and tell everyone what he found. He will talk about
    the four mirrors, and how they were on four different areas of the map. He will
    say their clues. This is somewhat crucial to finding out exactly where they are
    so listen to them. Then he says that Taharka's last words are another clue.
    Afterwards, they all head onto the airship. They talk for a little bit and
    Zidane decides that we should split up in twos and go to every one. Eiko says
    that she wants to go with Dagger. A sailor then gives us some information on the
    Water Shrine. Then you have control of the ship. Before you continue, make sure
    that Quina is at a respectable level. S/he is going with Zidane. If s/he isn't
    anywhere near 35, then try to level it up a bit. To get Quina in your party talk
    to the sailor that's not Erin at the wheel deck. Then we will go take the
    Shrines on. Also make sure you have two Feather Boots handy. Equip them on
    Zidane and Quina before you start up the Shrines.
    
    Water Shrine
    ------------
    
    Crew Member's Tip: "Our next destination is located south of Ispen's Castle.
                        The hint is, 'My power is protected underwater, surrounded
                        by the earth.'"
    
    From Ispen's Castle, go directly south until you hit a whirlpool. This is the
    Water Shrine. Press O to enter. In the next screen Eiko acts like a little kid
    to Zidane. Zidane leaves, and they go down into the tunnel. Choose whomever you
    want for a party member.
    
    Fire Shrine
    -----------
    
    Crew Member's Tip: "Our next destination is located in the mountains northeast
                        of Esto Gaza. 'My power is protected high atop a fiery
                        mountain' is the hint!"
    
    This next one is also easy to find. Go over to Esto Gaza. Press Select and cycle
    to the biggest map. Find Esto Gaza in the northern continent and press X for the
    game to automatically take you there. Once you are there, go around the small
    continent until you see lava. It should be in a mountain like a volcano. It's at
    the eastern part of the continent. Then we have a funny FMV where the ship'
    engine starts to overheat. Amarant is having a fit about going with Freya, but
    that quickly subsides when Zidane asks if he wanted to go with Eiko instead.
    Then they leave for the shrine.
    
    Wind Shrine
    -----------
    
    Crew Member's Tip: "Our next destination is located southeast of Oeilvert on
                        the Forgotten Continent. The hint is, 'My power is
                        protected behind a tornado.'"
    
    Go to Oeilvert. Southeast of it you will see two big mountains that make a small
    cliff in between the two. You will also hear the sound of wind. Go closer and
    you will see two vines. Go up to them and press O. Vivi and Steiner will be
    shown on the ship. Steiner says that the wind is not bad but when Vivi comes out
    he slowly gets blown back. Steiner goes in front of him and he doesn't fall.
    Zidane starts to worry about them. Then he decides that he has to deal with his
    own problems; Quina.
    
    Earth Shrine
    ------------
    
    Crew Member's Tip: "Our next destination is located southwest of Desert Palace,
                        on the Triquai Plains. The hint is, 'My power is protected
                        under the shaking ground.'"
    
    Before you go, make SURE that you have Quina at least level 30 with good Blue
    Magic, like White Wind, Pumpkin Head, and 1,000 needles. 1,000 needles is
    probably the most important. Now, go to the Desert Palace. It's on the map, so
    you should know exactly where it is. When you arrive, go south of it until you
    see three triangular stones. If you go closer to it the ground will start
    shaking. Save the game. Then it's time to enter.

                                  5.14 -  Earth Shrine

    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Enemies:
    --------
    Earth Guardian (Boss)
    
    When you enter, Quina will be happy that Zidane went with s/he. Zidane will say
    that he got stuck with the "leftovers" and Quina takes it as a complement. Quina
    says that the old saying in s/he's tribe is "Leftovers good." Then Quina hopes
    we will find food in the shrine. Go figure. Follow the path down to the next
    screen. Quina and Zidane will walk down the ground will start shaking. Then you
    have to jump two platforms. Just hit X when you first get the chance. It should
    be when the field icon first pops up.
    
    We go back to Eiko and Dagger, who dodge the ice blocks that fall on them. Quina
    will say that there is a slot for the mirror. As you walk up to it we will go to
    another group. We see Amarant and Freya. Freya comments on how easy it was to
    get here. As she is about to put the mirror in, a lizard like creatures pops up.
    S/he says that Kuja said to expect visitors. We go back to Zidane and Quina. A
    bone type creature will come down. Zidane will question him, then the answer we
    will see at Amarant and Freya. Amarant insults the Fire Guardian. Then it's back
    to Steiner and Vivi. Vivi will say that he can't target it with his magic.
    Steiner runs up to it and grabs it while Vivi fires. Back to Zidane and Quina,
    Zidane will talk to the Earth Guardian while all Quina can think about is food.
    Then we fight the Earth Guardian!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Earth Guardian
    HP: 20000
    Steal: Rubber Suit, Avenger
    Party: Zidane (42), Quina (31)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  Zidane should be at around level 40 while Quina should be at
    ------------     at least level 30.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying. Also have Auto-Regen equipped!
                  *  Quina should have the Glutton's Robe.
                  *  Quina should have the White Wind, Pumpkin Head, and 1,000
                     needles Blue Magic.
                  *  Zidane should have Master Thief, Bandit, and Mug equipped.
                  *  Ice absorbing/defending equipment will make this fight sad.
                  *  Everyone should have Feather Boots equipped WITHOUT
                     the Auto-Float ability equipped! Feather Boots absorb earth
                     damage!
    
    Overview:  This guardian is actually pretty easy if you met all the prepara-
    ---------  tions. His 20000 HP might scare you because you only have two party
               members, but don't be. If you have Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen, like you
               should, then he can't even kill you if he tried. If you got the
               Feather Boots like I asked, then his Earth Shake will be absorbed
               and you will get HP! You obviously cannot lose in this fight! Earth
               Guardian has plenty of attacks, but they all can be healed with
               Auto-Potion, not to mention Auto-Regen with it. Overall, this fight
               should be pretty easy.
    
    Attacks:  *  Firaga is a element type damage that does around the same amount
    --------     of damage as the other two. It will hit you for around 800 damage,
                 so it's not a big deal. He abuses these attacks because it is all
                 he really has to fight with. If you have a Coral Ring or something
                 else that absorbs this type of damage, he will heal you. This is
                 absolutely great if you ever get low on HP. Also, Guardian is to
                 stupid to use magic on himself when fighting, so if he hits a re-
                 flected character it will go back to him. Some of these attacks he
                 is Guarded against, however.
    
              *  Blizzaga is an element type damage that does around the same amount
                 of damage as the other two. It will hit you for around 750 damage,
                 so it's not a big deal. He abuses these attacks because it is all
                 he really has to fight with. If you have a Coral Ring or something
                 else that absorbs this type of damage, he will heal you. This is
                 absolutely great if you ever get low on HP. Also, Guardian is to
                 stupid to use magic on himself when fighting, so if he hits a re-
                 flected character it will go back to him. Some of these attacks he
                 is Guarded against, however.
    
              *  Thundaga is a element type damage that does around the same amount
                 of damage as the other two. It will hit you for around 750 damage,
                 so it's not a big deal. He abuses these attacks because it is all
                 he really has to fight with. If you have a Coral Ring or something
                 else that absorbs this type of damage, he will heal you. This is
                 absolutely great if you ever get low on HP. Also, Guardian is to
                 stupid to use magic on himself when fighting, so if he hits a re-
                 flected character it will go back to him. Some of these attacks he
                 is Guarded against, however.
    
              *  Double Slash is his only physical attack. It will do around 700
                 damage to one of your characters. Overall it is a pretty weak
                 attack at your current level. It misses sometimes, but usually it
                 doesn't. It's sort of the same as his 'ga's but you don't have to
                 waste 15 seconds looking at the spell being cast.
    
              *  Earth Shake can be his most deadly or most friendly attack, de-
                 pending on how you equipped. I told you to get two Feather Boots
                 and NOT to equip Auto-Float. If you did that, then this will be
                 ultra friendly. See, Feather Boots absorb earth damage. Earth
                 shake is earth damage. So every so often when he uses it, it will
                 heal you right up! He uses it a lot, too. It's pretty stupid,
                 because he still uses it a lot even though it heals you. If you
                 equipped Auto-Float then it will miss you because you are in the
                 air. If you did not equip the Feather Boots then you are in for
                 a disaster. This does around 600 damage to each party member. It's
                 nothing Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen can't fix, however.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Do you see the Rubber Suit and Avenger to steal? Do you know how great
             they are? Well, let me tell you... they are! Zidane will want to steal
             until he gets BOTH of these items. You should get the Avenger first,
             but it might take a while to get the Rubber Suit. Don't worry, how-
             ever, as Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen will heal you no matter what! The ab-
             ilities that you got, Bandit and Master Thief, should help you a lot
             in this stealing battle. When you are done stealing both of these
             jewels, then it's time to fight. Zidane should physically attack Earth
             Guardian unless he can do more damage with Thievery. Please note that
             he might, so there is no point in checking. In my battle, Zidane did
             around 1000 damage from the get go. Then that number shrunk to 750,
             somehow. So I took out Thievery and it did a strong 970 every time.
             This is what you have to do.
    
      Quina: Quina is actually a pretty solid choice. S/he can use Earthquake,
             White Wind, 1,000 Needles, and Mighty Guard. Earthquake is a pretty
             good attack against Taharka, as it is strong Blue Magic. White
             Wind is good if you find yourself in a bad situation. It will recover
             the party's health by a lot. 1,000 needles is by far one of s/he's
             best attacks, as it will always do 1000 damage. This attack is com-
             pletely reliable, never misses, and doesn't cost much Blue Magic.
             Mighty Guard will lower his defenses, but it costs a lot of MP for
             what it is worth. Also, if you find Quina low on HP use Pumpkin Head
             for some quick, reliable damage. You didn't forget about it, did you?
             It does Quina's full HP minus Quina's current HP. Only use it if you
             are low on HP.
    
             Quina should use 1,000 needles while Zidane is stealing. This will do
             1000 every time, no matter what. Keep the numbers tallied in your head
             of how much more HP he has. After Zidane has stolen, wait until the
             Earth Guardian's HP gets down to 1/8. This should be after you have
             taken 17500 HP away from him. Now you can eat the Earth Guardian! I
             think that this is a better end to that arrogant guardian. You also
             get the Earth Shake ability if you haven't already got it!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, Zidane will pull a Quina and say "All done!" Then both of them
    decide to go back to the airship to get everyone. Meanwhile, Eiko and Dagger
    will have just gotten out of the cave. Eiko will be her usual self and deprecate
    Zidane. Then Eiko will ask Dagger if she loves Zidane. I think... by golly, I
    think Dagger just lost her voice again! Maybe just in front of Eiko. Then Zidane
    will come with the airship.
    
    On the airship, Zidane and Amarant will have a little discussion. You get to
    choose from three choices. Just choose the one that best suits you, it doesn't
    matter which one. It will end in Zidane saying an Amarant-like quote and walking
    off. Amarant will finally understand why he lost; He lost against Zidane's mind.
    Then we get to choose a party. Choose Zidane, Vivi, Dagger, and Steiner. Why?
    Because in Terra, you will have to fight battles with certain people. Vivi's
    Flare ability is just to good to pass up, really. He will be doing a lot of
    damage. Dagger is better then Eiko because Dagger has more things to summon
    verse weakness monsters. Dagger also has pretty much the same cure spells.
    Steiner, however, can be changed with Amarant if you like. Steiner is a pretty
    solid character, sporting deadly physical attacks, but if Amarant has a good
    supply of Rising Suns they will make Steiner's attacks look awful. It all
    depends on how you have played. If you got Steiner Shock then you would
    obviously go with him. If you got Amarant tons of things to throw then he would
    be the obvious choice.
    
    World Map
    ---------
    
    I highly advise that, before you go to Terra, you do some Side Quests. This is
    basically so you can keep balance in the game. Square is aiming the next couple
    of battles on the fact that you did Chocobo Hot and Cold a little, and decided
    to bid on some things at Treno. If you feel like "just going to Terra", please
    first note that you will have some "Lost Forevers" that you will need to pick
    up. Notably, you should get Vivi's Octagon Rod at Esto Gaza and give the
    observatory man his three coffees.
    
    Also, it is advisable to get Running Shoes. You can get these by going to Quan's
    Dwelling (east of Treno) with Vivi and Quina in your party. Inside, go north to
    a dining room. Quina will hallucinate and think that food is everywhere. Then
    Quan and Quale will show up, and the three of them will talk in the room to the
    east. This is pretty much Quina's story. Vivi shows up, and we see a little
    about his grandpa. Then you have control. Check the clock to the east of you to
    get Running Shoes!
    
    Back to the walkthrough. Now it's time to progress further in the game. Go over
    to Esto Gaza. Now, go directly southeast of it. Look for some small ice islands,
    you should be able to see them on the map. You will find what looks to be a
    multicolor whirlpool in the big one. Go down to it, and you will be able to
    enter Shimmering Islands. Do so. Then we will see a lot of talk about Terra.
    Finally, you will have the decision to go in or go home. Choose go in, and
    Zidane will tell everyone to get out on deck. Then we will see a beautiful FMV
    where all the characters get sucked into Terra.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Enemies:
    --------
    Malboro (11500 HP)
    Mover (7500 HP)
    Hecteyes (9500 HP)
    Ring Leader (9500 HP)
    
    After the FMV, we will be in the stunning Terra. A "Old Man" will greet Zidane.
    Doesn't he look familiar, though? He will ask him for his name. When Zidane
    tries to answer the Old Man says that he has been corrupted by the blue moon.
    Then he will say that Zidane knows nothing, and vanishes. Afterwards, Dagger
    runs up to Zidane and you get to choose a party. Just choose the one that I
    wanted you too and you will be set. Go down the pathway and right to the next
    area. Then Zidane will see someone that looks like him. She starts running away
    afterwards.
    
    Terra is a place of many good enemies. Some of them are really difficult and
    have high HP. First off, Malboro aren't really a problem. They should be the
    least of your worries. Ring Leaders aren't that tough, too, but they tend to
    cast Reflect and absorb everyone's MP. That might be good or bad, depending on
    what party member's you/they chose. Hecteyes do Viral attacks, so you won't get
    any experience or AP after battle. However, this is pretty minor. They should be
    easy to defeat. Lastly, we have the Movers. I found these little red buggers to
    be quite nasty. Whenever you attack they will counter with Delta Triangle. This
    attack will always make that character die, and rarely ever misses. It
    completely stinks. You have to focus all of your attacks on one of the three.
    After one dies, the other two will stop doing the Death stuff. Instead, they
    will do a pretty powerful Firaga spell. At least it isn't instant death...
    
    Now, before we go north and follow this person, go west down the stairs to
    another screen. Then hop the rock to the east where a chest is. Pick up the
    Coronet, and then go back to the main rock. Hop north until you go to yet
    another screen. From here, get the Dragon Wrist, and then go back to where you
    saw the Zidane lookalike, two screens back. Now go north, following the person
    that should be a mile away by now. You will see s/he in front of you. Before you
    advance to the person, get the Elixir in the chest to the left. Then go north
    and the girl will run from you again.
    
    Follow her north and to another area. Then go on the bridge like thing and
    follow her some more. You will come to a couple web-like nets. You can go down
    these. Go down the southern one and walk around to another web leading down. You
    will find a chest down there. Collect the Remedy, and then go back up one of the
    webs. Now, go to the northwestern part of this platform with a web leading to
    the top on it. You should be able to see a glimpse of the person that Zidane is
    chasing. Walk up to the small ledge north of here. Choose to jump across to
    another platform. Now take the half-hidden chest to get a Mythril Racket. Then
    go down the web.
    
    Once down the web, go a little left of it to see a chest in plain view. Take the
    Demon's Mail inside the chest, then go west a little more. Zidane will confront
    the person, who seems to be a girl. She will tell you to follow her, and then
    run off again. Well, you heard the lady, follow her! In the next screen,
    converse with her and she will tell you that you will find out. In the next
    screen, go over and get the Minerva's Plate in the chest to the left. Then go up
    the northern stairs. Then we see the girl tell Zidane welcome home. Zidane
    questions her, and we see another FMV. In this FMV we see the ship with the eye
    that destroyed Madain Sari. Dagger passes out from the memory. Afterwards,
    someone tells Zidane that he completely oblivious to everything. Then we will
    finally enter Bran Bal.

    After Dagger passes out, Zidane runs to find help. Steiner says that he can take
    care of Dagger while he finds a place for her to rest. Then you get to choose a
    party. Just choose Zidane, Amarant, Vivi, and Eiko for now. Go right and we will
    enter Bran Bal. We see tons of monkey people that look like Zidane! From the
    entrance, go around the small pond to another area. Now, go down to where the
    screen ends. Then go back up and go inside the first house that you see. This
    house will have a bed for Dagger to rest. Then we go to Eiko. She tries talking
    to the Zidane like people but they show no emotion whatsoever. Finally, Eiko
    sees the girl that we chased earlier. She will tell Eiko to say that she will be
    waiting in an underground laboratory. Then Eiko will run inside the same house
    that Zidane is in.
    
    Inside, Dagger will in the bed and Zidane will talk to Freya and Steiner for a
    little bit. Then Dagger will awaken. She seems to have had an epiphany and
    remembers what destroyed Madain Sari. It seems it was the eye on that airship
    that we saw earlier. You know... that eye that looks EXACTLY like Lord of the
    Rings? They will continue to talk about the airship, then Eiko will childishly
    run inside. After some more idle chat, Eiko will say to Zidane about the girl
    wanting to meet him in an underground laboratory. Zidane will then weirdly
    leave.
    
    You now have control of Zidane. Go north inside another house. You will see a
    weird crystal with people huddling around it. Go east around them and you should
    see stairs. Go down to the underground part of this house. You should see the
    girl to the southwest. Converse with her and you will find out lots of useful
    information. They will start to talk about the people here, who are called
    Genomes. They look all zombified, and I think Zidane needs to give them a Magic
    Tag or something. She will continue to talk about this, and then Zidane will
    question her by asking why he has emotion. She will answer simply by saying that
    Zidane is "special" and mumble something about Garland. Then she will go
    upstairs.
    
    Now you have control of Zidane again. Look around south of the stairs, next to a
    pot, to find an Elixir. Then follow her upstairs. She will talk about Garland's
    role, and say that soon he will absorb the people of Gaia. The reason why he
    can't take a more forceful method is because he tried and got burned. It seems
    that Garland wants the power of the eidolons. Then she will say that you were
    supposed to help Garland. Finally, she will tell you that Garland is waiting.
    Then we go back to Dagger.
    
    Dagger will sense something is going to happen, and asks Eiko to tell Zidane
    about this. Then we have control of Eiko. View the ATE of Quina trying to eat
    the crystal. Of course, this theme goes well with the Genomes motionlessly
    standing. Quina sees Zidane and talks to him for a little while. They will talk
    about race, and then we go back to Eiko. Get the chest next to Steiner for an
    Elixir. Go outside and view the ATE of Vivi and Zidane. Vivi will make a very
    valid point that the Genomes are similar to the black mages in ways unlike
    looks. Zidane will oddly just walk away.
    
    Back to Eiko, walk north to the crystal room. Talk to Quina, and s/he will
    decide to join up with you to find Zidane. Then view the ATE of Zidane and the
    girl. She will walk into the green light and tell Zidane to follow her. Then
    Amarant will come up and "greet" Zidane. The weird part is Zidane is making the
    somewhat insulting comments this time around. Zidane asks Amarant if he
    remembers his parents and Amarant tells Zidane that the first memory he has is
    of someone he had to fight. That sounds like Amarant, doesn't it? Amarant asks
    Zidane the same question about parents and Zidane's answer is that he does not
    have parents.
    
    Exit through to southeastern part of the crystal room. This will take you back
    to the pond. View the ATE of Zidane and the girl talking. The girl will insist
    that Zidane meet Garland. We then see another odd conversation from Zidane. In
    the end, he goes through the portal to meet Garland. Back to control of Eiko, go
    down and east to a house. Inside you will see a moogle pom pom and a chest.
    Collect the Wind Edge in the chest, and go over to the basket with the moogle
    pom pom. Eiko will free the moogle. Now you should buy equipment from this
    moogle, he has the very best. You should have infinite money right now so money
    doesn't matter. The equipment is just... unbelievable. You will need it for
    upcoming fights.
    
    Also, save your game. This is one of the last save points in disc three so you
    might find yourself coming back here. Go back outside and reenter to find
    Stiltzkin. Buy the Elixir, Diamond and Ether for 2222 Gil. This is a real steal.
    Save your game again, and then walk back outside. Before we leave, I would like
    you ask you to have Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen combo equipped. I had to unequip the
    level up ability, but that is no big deal since most of the fights in the next
    area are boss fights.
    
    When you are ready, go outside and talk to Vivi. He will decide to join your
    party. Now equip him with everything you have gotten here. Remember to unequip
    level up and ability up for Auto-Regen if necessary. When you are ready, go east
    and up the stairs. You will be in the area where Zidane and Amarant talked. Talk
    to Amarant, and he will oddly want to go with you. Now equip him with all new
    equipment and Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen. Go through the green light north to a
    bridge-like area. Follow the bridge and go up the steps to see the girl. Talk
    with her, and Eiko will basically confront her. The girl will completely
    misquote Zidane, and Eiko will run back to the others.

    Silver Dragon (Boss)
    Garland (Boss)
    Kuja (Boss)
    
    Pandemonium, in case you didn't know, is Garland's castle. Zidane will talk a
    little, and then you have control of him. Before we continue, equip everything
    that you bought earlier. You should have the Orichalcon, at least, to give him.
    Also equip Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen and remember that if you don't have enough
    magic stones Level Up can be unequipped. When you are ready, walk further into
    Garland's castle.
    
    In this next room, the Old Man that you saw earlier appears magically. He says
    that Zidane is his most prized Genome and we find out that the Old Man is
    Garland! That's a shocker! Garland will tell you that his intentions are not to
    destroy Gaia, but to make Gaia into Terra. Then he says that it was not his
    intentions to have you grow up in Gaia. Finally, he says that there is someone
    like you, someone that we actually know! Afterwards, Garland will walk up the
    steps and into another room, inviting you to join him. Walk up the stairs and we
    will see that we have finally entered the inner core of Pandemonium.
    
    In this room, you have to jump across the platforms to Garland. This should be
    simple; Jump right, up, then left. Garland will continue to talk about the
    Genome just like you, the one that was to powerful. He decided to have this
    Genome go disrupt Gaia, a job that you failed to do. Just follow Garland to the
    next platform. Zidane will again confront Garland, saying that he has met no one
    that looks like him. Garland will say that this Genome is Kuja, and that he
    hides is similar appearance. It always has to end like Star Wars, eh? He will
    talk a little more about Kuja being Zidane's "brother," and of course Zidane
    denies it. Then Garland goes to another platform.
    
    Jump up two platforms and the screen will fade. When it goes back up, we see
    Zidane and Garland in a similar room. Garland tells Zidane about Kuja, and how
    Kuja's goal was to bring chaos to Gaia. Garland continues by saying that Kuja
    did a better job then he would have ever expected. Now jump to the left platform
    to Garland. Garland will continue to talk about you. He says that you received
    the gift of life, and Kuja could not bear it. He felt threatened that someone
    was stronger then him, and "discarded" you to the world of Gaia. This was a
    world that he would destroy. Upon its collapse, Kuja would feel like he
    destroyed you.
    
    Zidane will question what Garland gets out of disrupting Gaia, and of course
    Garland disappears again. Follow him to the next platform. Garland talks about
    making Gaia become Terra, and how the mist does it by killing off people. Zidane
    says that he stopped the mist but Garland says that it is still there. In the
    next room, we will see the planet Gaia and a red light in the center. Garland
    will say that all Zidane did was stop the flow of the mist, he didn't stop the
    flow of the souls. Zidane will call Kuja merely an "Angel of Death" and it seems
    Zidane finally understands. He is supposed to take Kuja's position after he gets
    stronger then Kuja. Zidane then tries to get the upper hand of the argument,
    saying that his home is in Gaia and not Terra. He will try to fight Garland but
    he replies with the cool quote: "...don't you know what it means to meet your
    maker?" Then Garland somehow makes Zidane pass out.
    
    Kuja seems to have arrived at Terra as well. He will say some things, then we
    see the Invincible go up. Then we go back to Zidane who is on a chair. He has
    flashbacks of all the main characters. He denies everything that he has done,
    and admits to himself that he is just an empty vessel. Then Eiko and Vivi wake
    up Zidane. Zidane walks down the room as Vivi and Eiko argue with him. It ends
    with Zidane getting angry. He calls Vivi and Eiko "brats," something we know
    that he wouldn't ever do. Then he leaves the room and locks the door so Vivi and
    Eiko can't follow him. This is not Zidane-like. Don't you remember that quote:
    "You don't need a reason to help people!?" Zidane argues with them a little
    more, then we have a boss fight.

    Boss Name: Amdusias
    HP: 11000
    Steal: Tent, Ether
    Party: Zidane (44), Amarant (44), Freya (27)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 42 with exception to
    ------------     Freya, who should be at level 27.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying.
                  *  You should also have Auto-Regen on Zidane and Amarant. I don't
                     blame you if you don't have it on Freya, she is at a low
                     level.
                  *  You should have a good supply of Rising Suns. (4-5 for this
                     battle alone.)
                  *  Freya should have the Lancer ability.
                  *  Everyone should have their strongest weapons.
                  *  Auto-Haste is nice on Zidane.
    
    Overview:  This boss is pathetically easy. He only uses an attack called Horn,
    ---------  which does around 1000 damage. This isn't that bad, considering it
               is his ONLY attack. He has bad defenses, and one hit by Zidane
               should be all that is needed for Freya to come to the fight. Zidane
               should be doing around 2500 damage, sadly. Freya should use Lancer
               while Zidane sticks to attacking. Amdusias doesn't have anything
               other then his physical attack. Freya might get low on HP, so you
               might just to have her heal herself instead of attacking. Amdusias
               is fairly fast, so Freya might die but that is no big deal. After
               you have around half of the HP taken away, Amarant will decide to
               join the fight. Then this battle is a walk in the park. With how
               high the damage output is compared to the HP, you should be done
               with this fight shortly. Try to have ever at high HP when you end
               this battle, he will have to fight many others soon.
    
    Attacks:  *  Horn is his one and only attack. This is a physical attack, so if
    --------     you have defense then it shouldn't do much damage. It hits one
                 party member for 1000 damage. This might seem bad, but with Auto-
                 Potion it is nothing. It might be bad on Freya, however. This is
                 his only attack, so he has to abuse it. You might find him to this
                 attack twice, but it doesn't do anything to anyone except Freya.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Zidane's role, if you didn't know already, is to physically attack.
             He should be doing around 2500 damage per turn, which is amazing
             considering Amdusias' low HP. If Thievery is better, have him use
             that prudently. You might want to save it for the upcoming battles
             and stick to attacking. Amdusias doesn't have anything to steal be-
             sides a Tent and an Ether, which is laughable. Zidane's damage output
             alone should be able to win this fight. He should have Auto-Potion and
             Auto-Regen equipped, but if you aren't advanced enough then you just
             might have Auto-Potion. That's fine, you can survive a lot of hits
             from Amdusias.
    
      Freya: Freya then comes into the fight after Zidane does. Have her use Lancer
             or any better skill until she runs out of MP. Then she can proceed to
             Jumping and healing. I advise that you have her be a healer, also,
             because your damage output won't be that great with Freya. She has to
             have Chemist by now so throw Hi-Potions right and left. Also, use
             Reis' Wind if things start to get sticky. This will cast Regen on the
             whole party. Of course, if everyone has Auto-Regen on then there is
             no plausible need to do it. Freya could also cast a better Dragon
             Skill if she has it. She might just want to heal herself in this
             battle, Amdusias tends to gang up on her. If he does that, then you
             might find Freya dead. This doesn't matter much, however.
    
    Amarant: Amarant, yet again, is your all-star. He is turning into a full-time
             but not full-blown hero. Have him throw Rising Suns at Amdusias. It
             will do around 4000 damage each turn! This is pretty spectacular con-
             sidering his regular attacks do around 1500 damage. This is why I told
             you to get 5 Rising Suns; 5 will kill Amdusias. If you don't have
             have any Rising Suns, then stick to attacking physically.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After this easy battle Freya will call Zidane foolish to go alone. Then Amarant
    will even call him a loner. Imagine that, a loner labeling a loner. Zidane will
    ignore then, and press onward. In the next screen we will see Quina and Steiner
    get thrown back. Steiner will say that he will not be defeated so easily, and
    Quina will say that Quina will cook it. Then the two, without Zidane, fight him.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Abadon
    HP: 12500
    Steal: Garnet, Phoenix Pinion, Vaccine
    Party: Zidane (44), Steiner (42), Quina (35)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 42 with exception to
    ------------     Quina, who should be around 35.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying.
                  *  You should also have Auto-Regen on everyone. You might just
                     have it on Zidane, and that's okay.
                  *  Quina should have 1,000 needles.
                  *  Everyone should have their strongest weapons.
                  *  Auto-Haste is nice on Zidane.
    
    Overview:  I found this battle to be about your characters' level. It isn't
    ---------  nearly as easy as the first battle, but then it isn't very tough,
               either. Abadon only has two attacks to begin with. One does minimal
               damage to the party while the other does a lot of damage on one
               character. The bad part is Abadon is very very very fast. So he
               might be able to get two attacks in before you can even heal. This
               might make this fight annoying. He tends not to abuse his physical
               attacks, however. After you get around a fourth of his HP taken away
               Zidane will join the fight. Then it will be really easy to destroy
               Abadon. Zidane and Steiner will do around 5000 damage each, taking
               away just below half of his HP in a turn! Quina's 1,000 needles will
               make it to about half. This fight won't last very long. I give it
               a medium because of the beginning. You should be able to take ad-
               vantage once Zidane comes in, however.
    
    Attacks:  *  He has a magic attack (I forgot the name) that does around 500
    --------     damage to all characters. This isn't that bad, considering Auto-
                 Potion can just about heal it up. The bad part is it attacks all
                 characters, unlike his physical attack. You shouldn't find much
                 of a problem with this unless you don't have Auto-Potion with
                 high potions.
    
              *  His physical attacks do around 1000 damage to one character. This
                 is pretty bad, considering Quina should only have around 2000 HP.
                 He uses this attack often, also. There is no real way to counter
                 this except to heal, heal, and heal. You might find your charact-
                 ers dead just because he abuses this attack. He is fast so he
                 might be able to get two attacks in before Quina or Steiner can
                 heal up. It only attacks one character, however.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Zidane comes into the battle pretty late. I don't know why he comes
             in so late, he must be feeling really bad. Anyway, Zidane's top pri-
             ority in this fight is to attack. The items that Abadon has to offer
             really aren't that great, you should have all of them by now. The only
             one that you might be curios out is the Garnet, but you should already
             have that because Beatrix gave it to you. The other two items are
             low items that make no sense to steal. Zidane should do around 3000
             damage with his attacks in this fight. I don't advise that you use
             Thievery unless progressively better then his attacks.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's role, as you all may know by now, is to attack. His attacks
             will do a lot of damage, around 2000 to be exact. As you can see, if
             you are anywhere near the projected level this fight really is not
             that hard. Since Steiner does not have Vivi in the party, he cannot
             use his highly acclaimed magic sword abilities. If Steiner gets low
             on HP have him use Darkside. As we all know, his health should be up
             and running again after he uses it. He should also use any better
             ability that you may have picked up in Side Quests.
    
      Quina: Quina is actually a pretty solid character. S/he can use Earthquake,
             White Wind, 1,000 needles, and Mighty Guard. Earthquake is a pretty
             good attack against Taharka, as it is strong Blue Magic. White
             Wind is good if you find yourself in a bad situation. It will recover
             the party's health by a lot. 1,000 needles is by far one of s/he's
             best attacks, as it will always do 1000 damage. This attack is com-
             pletely reliable, never misses, and doesn't cost much Blue Magic.
             Mighty Guard will lower his defenses, but it costs a lot of MP for
             what it is worth. Also, if you find Quina low on HP use Pumpkin Head
             for some quick, reliable damage. You didn't forget about it, did you?
             It does Quina's full HP minus Quina's current HP. Only use it if you
             are low on HP.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, Quina and Steiner give Zidane reasons to stay and not confront
    Garland. Quina says that Zidane needs to teach him/her more about food, and
    Steiner wants to know if Zidane is the right man for Zidane. Zidane tells them
    to leave him alone and then walks off. In the next room, Zidane says that they
    are all a bunch of babysitting bastards. Then he says that he is the worst
    bastard. After this, we encounter another battle.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Shell Dragon
    HP: 12500
    Steal: Phoenix Pinion, Tent, Hi-Potion, and Vaccine
    Party: Zidane (44), Dagger (35)
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    
    Preparation:  *  Zidane should be at level 42, while Dagger should be around
    ------------     level 35.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying.
                  *  You should also have Auto-Regen on everyone. You might just
                     have it on Zidane, and that's okay.
                  *  Dagger should have Shiva and/or Bahamut ready.
                  *  Zidane should have his strongest weapons
                  *  Auto-Haste wouldn't hurt anyone besides Shell Dragon.
                  *  Feather Boots help a lot because of they absorb earth damage.
                     If you have them equipped remember NOT to have the Auto-Float
                     ability so you can absorb his Earth Shake.
    
    Overview:  This fight can be very hard if you don't have Auto-Potion/Auto-
    ---------  Regen. Shell Dragon has some very mean attacks. Anyway, the battle
               starts off with Zidane fighting Shell Dragon alone. Shell Dragon
               will use smash on the third turn and bring Zidane's HP down to one.
               Out of nowhere, someone will use Curaga on Zidane! This is Dagger!
               Even if Dagger didn't have Curaga, she still heals Zidane complete
               ly. Now the battle is a lot easier with Dagger to heal everyone.
               Shell Dragon might abuse the usage of Smash if you hurt him to much.
               This still can be healed with Cura/Curaga. This battle really isn't
               that hard if you are on your feet.
    
    Attacks:  *  Snort is Shell Dragon's most deadly attack. Though you might not
    --------     see it, if you do you will be throwing the television out the
                 window. Snort takes one player from this battle. Whether it be
                 Zidane or Dagger we know it is bad. You won't be seeing this
                 character until the end of the battle, which you might not even
                 get to. He never uses Snort, really, unless you are ultra powerful
                 and destroy him in a couple hits. Then he might use it, but don't
                 worry about it if you are at the projected level. There is no way
                 to "counter" its effect and it only hits one person. (Obviously.)
    
              *  Smash would probably be considered more deadly then Snort. Why?
                 Because it reduces a characters' HP to ONE! This is an insane
                 attack that he uses a lot more often then Snort. It hits one per-
                 son and no matter how much HP they have, it will be reduced to
                 one. Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen will really come in handy here. You
                 can have most of your HP back before your next turn. Also Dagger
                 can quickly heal this away. Shell Dragon won't use it at first,
                 so don't worry about that. Overall this is one deadly attack.
    
              *  Earth Shake is a magic spell, which he loves to cast. It will do
                 earth-type damage on all characters. This should do around 500-
                 1000 damage, depending on the character and their equipment. It
                 can be deadly to Dagger, because of her low HP, but Auto-Potion
                 should heal it right up. You shouldn't really worry about this
                 attack, but it can be life threatening. You might want to equip
                 the Feather Boots to absorb Earth damage. That would mean that
                 the attack that he uses most often would heal you! This would
                 make the boss such a pushover.
    
              *  Charge is the weakest attack in his arsenal, but definitely not
                 one to be taken lightly. It will do around 700 damage to one
                 character which isn't that bad. He doesn't use this attack much
                 but it will be a nice finishing move for him to do after Smash.
                 Don't take this attack lightly and heal all the damage you lost.
                 Auto-Potion should be able to take care of it on its own.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: First off, you might notice that Shell Dragon has nothing to steal.
             Don't waste turns trying to steal stupid stuff like that. The first
             three turns will be without Dagger. This is fine, though. Shell Dragon
             tends to use Earth Shake and Charge during these turns. These are very
             weak attacks that Auto-Potion can suck up. Just attack physically for
             three turns. On the third Shell Dragon will use Smash. Then Dagger
             will appear and heal all of your health! Now you can proceed to hack-
             ing away at Shell Dragon without having to worry about HP. You're at-
             tacks should do around 2500 damage. That means that after five attacks
             he should be dead. Note that your first three attacks don't count in
             his projected HP of 12500.
    
     Dagger: Dagger will appear after the third turn in savior attempt. She will
             heal Zidane's HP after that malevolent attack called Smash. Now that
             you have her, too, you won't have much trouble with this fight. Dagger
             should be a full-time healer when Smash comes around. The other two
             attacks are really nothing to worry about. Dagger should be using
             Shiva if she can. Shell Dragon is weak verse ice so it will do a lot
             of damage. If you don't have that, then have her use Bahamut. You
             very well should have one of these. They will do around 2500 damage
             each. Of course, if you got tons of Aquamarines then use Leviathan.
             Dagger might get ejected, but Zidane can wrap things up.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the short battle Dagger will try to knock some sense into Zidane. They
    will talk for a bit, and then she will say that she wants to protect him. Then
    both Steiner and Quina will walk in and say why they want to protect Zidane.
    Then everyone wonders about the other four and decide to go back to get them. We
    all form up, and now you have to decide which way to go. Go right and through
    the doors. Continue right and past another door. You will see the other four
    members. They will talk for a bit, and everyone will decide to go get Garland.
    Then you get to choose a party. I would highly advise you choose Zidane, Vivi,
    Steiner, and Dagger.
    
    Why? Well, you have to have Zidane in your party. Amarant is good if you have a
    good supply of Rising Suns. These will do more then Steiner's attacks. However,
    Steiner has Flare Sword, which will do a lot of damage. Therefore, it is better
    to have Steiner in your party. You might want to substitute Amarant for Dagger
    if you want a truly offensive party. This should only be done if you have 99 Hi-
    Potions and every has Auto-Regen/Auto-Potion, though. However, Dagger will prove
    useful with Silence in the upcoming battles. Now, save at the moogle. You can
    also buy stuff at Mognet here, so if you are running short on supplies just ask
    him. Note that it is the same stuff as before, so you have a second chance to
    get some truly great stuff.
    
    You should have everyone besides Steiner/Freya with the Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen
    combo. You can get Auto-Regen from the Golden Hairpin, which any of the other
    six characters can equip. Steiner can just use Darkside if he gets low on HP. As
    for Freya, you just shouldn't use her because she will probably be at a low
    level. Oh, did I tell you that you could save here, as well? This moogle is
    truly a jack of all trades! Also: You can use magic all you want. There is a
    save moogle right before we fight three powerful bosses! Isn't that too nice of
    Square!?
    
    Okay, let's get back to the walkthrough. Have Zidane go north, up the steps, and
    passed the gate-door. This is room where Eiko and Vivi found Zidane. Go up the
    throne chair where Zidane was. Collect the Holy Miter and equip it with the
    character you desire. Then go back south to where the moogle was, and southwest
    to another area. Continue west to see where you fought Shell Dragon. Continue
    west to find a pretty annoying puzzle.
    
    Before we start, let me tell you how annoying this enigmatic puzzle really is.
    You see those pins all around the floor? Well, you have to get through it in 30
    seconds. The catch is that three of the pins will light up. If you get close to
    a lit up one then you will be forced to fight a battle. Of course, you won't be
    able to defeat the enemy in less then 30 seconds, and you will have to start
    over. This completely sucks, and it takes around 5 tries before you can across.
    You have to get to the southwestern part of the room. Then you will be in a
    bridge area. I do not know if the bridge will disappear if the time runs out.
    Just run across the bridge and you will be done with this. So, what's the
    strategy to getting passed this? Well, they light up in a certain way every
    time. You have to see what ways they light up, and plan a way to get through. I
    have _attempted_ to give you a map to get you through. Bare with me, please.

    Note: Map not to scale!
    
    Get to down to first trail and wait until the second trio lights up. Then go
    down to the second. This is where it gets tricky. You have to advance to the
    following trail right after the one blocking you goes down, but before the one
    you are at lights up. This is pretty hard. You will want to try to get a "jump"
    but if you go in to early then you will have to fight a monster. It is very
    annoying but doable. Just keep retrying until you get the lay of the land, I
    know that the drawing sucked horrendously; It's just my attempt to make this a
    little easier. Please no emails. Oh, and the last trail is very easy once you
    get passed the second part.
    
    Follow the lit up bridge east to the next screen. Go west through this screen
    until you see a red light on a triangle shaped rock. This is actually a button
    that controls the elevator in the next area. This next part is a little tricky,
    so I will try to be as clear as possible. Go up to the button and press it. Then
    you will be able to choose an altitude. Choose anything you want and go west.
    You will see an elevator thing to the west of you. Try to get on but most of the
    time a force field will allow you not to. If you are allowed to get on, then
    just go up and go back down. Now that you have tried but failed to get on, go
    back to the button again. If Freya or Amarant are not there, then continue doing
    this until they are. Finally, you will see both of them in the room. They will
    say this thing is hopeless unless they control the elevator while you are on it
    in the next room. Go west back to the other room and view the ATE.
    
    Before I talk about this ATE, I would like to say that if Amarant is in your
    party that someone else would be controlling the elevator. This is just to
    clarify any confusion. This ATE is the first one where you control what you do
    in the ATE. You will choose numbers and this will realign the elevator. Then you
    press O and go back to Zidane. Now you can have Zidane go on the elevator and to
    the next platform. You will have to continue this tediously long process until
    you get to the top. Now I'll give you the cut-and-dry directions to get to the
    top.
    
    In the beginning, press select and have the party change the number to four.
    Then press O and choose to go back. Have Zidane go up to the middle area. Now,
    take the spiral path up to the middle-top elevators. Then continue on that path
    to the top of the elevators. Now go over to the rightmost elevator. Go back to
    the party and change the number to three. Have Zidane get on the elevator and
    take the Gil in the chest. Go back down and go over to the remaining elevator on
    the top level. The party should now change it to five. Then go on the elevator
    and you will have gotten out of this annoying puzzle!
    
    You will now be in a circular room with glowing lights all around the sides.
    This is another puzzle. This time around you will have to take all the blue/red
    teleporters around and get the treasure. Take the right path and follow it until
    you reach the end. You will now get a choices icon and have the choice to go up
    another floor. Choose to do so and you will be in an area with a moogle. Go left
    from where you are and take the blue teleporter. This will bring you down to a
    path. Follow this path to the end and get the chest. Afterwards, go back left
    and to the teleporter you just took. This will teleport you to the previous
    area.
    
    Now go back to the red teleporter in the center of the room but don't take it.
    Instead go right and take the blue teleporter there. It will take you down to
    another chest. Collect the Elixir then take the teleporter back up. Now take the
    red teleporter down to the circular room. Go to the center of the room and take
    the southern path. Take the teleporter to the top and follow the path until you
    come to a fork. Take the southern part and use the teleporter there. You will
    arrive at a platform with two blue teleporters. Take the one that you aren't on
    and it will take you to a treasure chest. Collect the battle boots, then get
    back on the teleporter on this platform. Go back down to the platform with two
    teleporters and take the one you aren't standing on. Go back to the fork and
    take the northeastern path. Get on the teleporter, and you will be at another
    platform with two teleporters. Take the one that you aren't standing on, and you
    will finally be to the moogle.
    
    If you didn't understand this, let's do it in steps also:
    
     1. In the circular room, take the right path and use the teleporter.
     2. Go left from the red teleporter and take the blue teleporter.
     3. Get the chest in this platform then use the last teleporter.
     4. Go right passed the red teleporter and to a blue teleporter.
     5. Take this teleporter down and get the chest.
     6. Take the teleporter back up and use the red teleporter in the middle.
     7. You will now be back in the circular room. Go to the middle and take the
        southern path.
     8. Use the teleporter and follow the path until you come to a fork.
     9. Take the southern path and use the teleporter at the end of it.
    10. Take the other teleporter (the one you aren't on now) to a chest platform.
    11. Get the chest and take the teleporter down to the platform with two
        teleporters.
    12. Take the other teleporter (the one you aren't on now) and go back to the
        fork.
    13. Now follow the northern path to a teleporter and use it.
    14. Take the teleporter at the other end of the platform and you will be at the
        moogle!
    
    This is annoying as hell and you might get confused. Don't worry, I did too. Go
    to the moogle and give him a letter. Now, you should use one or two tents. Why
    would you use two? Well, when you use one tent sometimes all of your MP is not
    restored. Therefore, you would need to use a tent twice to get all your MP back.
    Save your game and make any changes to the party that you want. I advise that
    you choose Zidane, Vivi, Dagger, and Steiner, though I will cover the boss
    fights with everyone.
    
    Get ready for the fights; be sure to read the preparations for all three of them
    before you continue. I would advise that everyone has Auto-Potion, Auto-Regen,
    and Auto-Reflect equipped before you go in. Unequip Level Up if you don't have
    enough magic stones. This will make your life a lot easier. Auto-Reflect is
    "iffy," however. You can have Dagger cast it on characters if necessary.
    However, it is advisable that you have it on at least 1-2 characters. If you
    need to finish up Bahamut on Dagger then do that now. Afterwards, have her equip
    the Reflect Ring. Oh, and if you don't even have a ring (wow, you didn't use
    infinite money wisely), then you will have to stick with Dagger casting Reflect.
    When you are ready, go right and try to get to the next area. The moogle will
    warn you, but don't heed his warning. In this room Garland will say a series of
    things that "makes him sleep at night." Then Zidane and the gang will arrive.
    They will all say why they live, and Garland will sick his pet dragon on us.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Silver Dragon
    HP: 24000
    Steal: Kaiser Knucklers, Dragon Mail, Elixir
    Party: Zidane (47), Vivi (47), Dagger (42), Steiner (45)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 45 with exception to
    ------------     Dagger, who should be around 40.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying. Also Auto-Regen is a must.
                  *  Vivi should have the Black Robe so he can use Flare.
                  *  Dagger should have Bahamut ready to use.
                  *  Auto-Reflect on all characters is nice, but not necessary. If
                     your characters are still learning stuff like Bahamut and
                     such then just have Dagger cast Reflect on everyone.
                  *  Zidane might want to have Master Thief, Bandit, and Mug
                     equipped. This is only if you think the items are worthwhile.
                  *  Strongest weapon and armor is a must in this fight.
                  *  Wind absorbing/defending equipment will make this fight sad.
    
    Overview:  Silver Dragon is no pushover unless you have played this game a ton
    ---------  of times like me, then it was easy. See, Silver Dragon can be a
               pretty easy or pretty tough boss depending how long you let him
               live. I say this because some people will use magic up the yin yang
               when fighting him while others will preserve it for the other
               battles. Since we are late in the game, however, you are allowed to
               abuse usage of magic to an extent. You should have acquired enough
               Ethers so in the following battles you can just heal your MP right
               up. This makes for easy boss fights; Magic completely destroys the
               enemy. Anyway, if you decided to use magic Silver Dragon will be
               very easy to defeat. He only has around 24000 HP. If you decided to
               bring Wind Equipment along then it will be even easier because you
               will absorb a couple of his attacks.
    
    Attacks:  *  Shockwave is probably the best attack in Silver Dragon's arsenal
    --------     just because it does a lot of damage. You will see around 1000
                 damage to the whole party with this attack! It can be very bad if
                 you didn't take the time to equip your abilities correctly. If
                 you did, however, equip Auto-Potion and Auto-Regen this fight will
                 be very easy. After he does this everyone will use Auto-Potion and
                 gain all there HP back with Auto-Regen while they are all Auto-
                 Potioning. If you don't have it, then I guess you would say that
                 you are "up the creek without a paddle." Have Dagger heal the most
                 important character.
    
              *  Aerial Slash is wind elemental type damage so, if you have any
                 wing absorbing equipment equipped, it will give you HP. This can
                 be good, especially with Vivi because the Octagon Rod has absorb
                 versus Wind. For the other characters, this might be a problem.
                 Aerial Slash is similar to Shockwave, only it does less damage.
                 It hits the whole party and such. You should know how to counter
                 it.
    
              *  Claw is Silver Dragon's only physical attack. It will do around
                 750 damage to one character. This attack should be the least of
                 your worries for the simple reason that 750 damage isn't much.
                 Have your Auto stuff restore the HP, or have Dagger heal. You
                 won't be seeing this attack often.
    
              *  Twister is a fairly odd attack. The reason for this is because it
                 is completely random in damage. Sometimes it hits for 200 damage
                 and sometimes 1000 damage! It's sort of like Quina's weapons, only
                 it gets more tenacious if you are doing better in the fight. When
                 I saw this attack two times in the fight. The first was in the
                 beginning, and it did 500 damage to the party. The second was at
                 the very end, just after I pulverized him. It did a whopping 1000
                 damage to the entire party! I would think that the damage has to
                 do with either how much HP he has left or badly he is getting
                 beaten.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Let me first talk about stealing. To steal in this fight depends upon
             what abilities you have equipped, and if you are going to play Chocobo
             Hot and Cold. See you can get the Kaiser Knucklers, which you are
             probably eyeing, at H&C if you progress nicely. Most people don't like
             to play the game, though, and want to steal it. In this case, I hope
             you have at least Bandit equipped. Master Thief would help a lot,
             also. It will take a while to get the Knucklers as they are the most
             important item. This could be very bad if you don't have a good heal-
             ing defense. Anyway, after you steal, or decided not to, Zidane will
             be left with plain attacking. He should be doing at least 2500 damage
             each time. If his Thievery skill is better, use it. MP doesn't matter
             because you probably have at least 150 right now.
    
       Vivi: I consider Vivi to be a powerful character at this point in the game.
             His magic, in short, is wonderful. Flare will do a terrific amount
             of damage to Silver Dragon. You can preserve magic if you want, but I
             don't think you should. Flare will take away around 1/6 of his HP
             very easily. If you are uneasy about using Ethers, then use a weaker
             level 3 version spell like Firaga.
    
    Steiner: Steiner will make this battle laughable. Flare Sword does a ton of
             damage to Silver Dragon. Around 5000, to be precise. This is a lot,
             but then Flare costs a whopping 60 MP to use. I would just use an
             Ether, but do whatever you desire. Attack if you really want to save
             MP. Also, you might want to have Steiner have Auto-Haste equipped just
             for a laugh. You can't get Auto-Regen up to this point so he actually
             has some magic stones to be covered. Auto-Haste will make him attack
             pretty fast. ^_^
    
     Dagger: Dagger won't have much of a job in this fight. She should really do
             the healing, but it seems Auto-Potion and Auto-Regen have taken her
             job away from her! She should be on standby, just in case Silver Dra-
             gon's Twister does an insane amount of damage or something. Rather
             then that, you can have her cast Bahamut or some semi-bad eidolon if
             you feel like it. With your offense, though, you might just want her
             to waste turns by attacking.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is a powerhouse in this battle. She can use Madeen for around
             3000 damage! This attack will vary; sometimes it will do 2000-4000
             damage. Madeen is a killer skill, but it has a killer MP cost. Use it
             wisely. Also, if you have Boost then please do it. It will make Madeen
             even stronger! Anyway, onto Eiko's full-blown duty. This duty is
             simple; Heal. Curaga and Cura are always your best friends. Use Hi-
             Potions if you want to use your magic prudently. Eiko can also cast
             Reflect and Shell and whatnot on the party if you want to. Reflect is
             actually very good because it some of Silver Dragon's spells and it
             hurts him instead of him absorbing it.
    
    Amarant: Amarant's role is simple; Throw Rising Suns. These little things will
             do immense damage to Silver Dragon. I told you to only use Amarant if
             you had tons of Rising Suns and the reason for this is all Amarant has
             over Steiner is throwing stuff. Steiner does have Flare Sword, though,
             which sort of makes up for throwing stuff. If Amarant doesn't have
             anything to throw then stick to physically attacking and throwing
             (not literally) some skills in there if necessary.
    
      Freya: At this point in time, you should have a skill that's better then
             Lancer. I advise that you use it. I'm not updated with Freya so I
             wouldn't know. I didn't really use Freya that much. Use Reis' Wind
             if everyone doesn't have Auto-Regen. After you run out of MP, stick
             to Jumping.
    
      Quina: If you did choose Quina, I hope you substituted s/he for one of the
             healers or you really will have a tough fight! Quina should use White
             Wind and Hi-Potions to heal people. That is Quina's minor priority.
             S/he should also use 1,000 needles because it, yet again, is a re-
             liable attack that will always do 1000 damage. At this point in time,
             1000 damage might seem like nothing. However, Quina's attacks really
             aren't that hot, and vary greatly. Quina should also use Pumpkin Head
             if Quina's HP gets low. Finally, Quina might want to use Limit Glove
             if you somehow have 1 HP.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, the Silver Dragon will break into a thousand pieces. Then
    Garland will say that he is the controller of Terra, and we will be in a boss
    fight versus the one and only Garland.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Garland
    HP: 40000
    Steal: Dark Gear, Ninja Gear, Battle Boots
    Party: Zidane (47), Vivi (47), Dagger (42), Steiner (45)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 45 with exception to
    ------------     Dagger, who should be around 40.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying. Also Auto-Regen is a must.
                  *  Vivi should have the Black Robe so he can use Flare.
                  *  Dagger should have Bahamut ready to use.
                  *  Auto-Reflect on all characters is nice, but not necessary. If
                     your characters are still learning stuff like Bahamut and
                     such then just have Dagger cast Reflect on everyone.
                  *  Zidane might want to have Master Thief, Bandit, and Mug
                     equipped. This is only if you think the items are worthwhile.
                  *  Strongest weapon and armor is a must in this fight.
                  *  Wind absorbing/defending equipment will make this fight sad.
                  *  Dagger should know Silence.
    
    Overview:  When the fight starts, heal everyone's MP with Ethers. This should
    ---------  only take one turn from everyone. Anyway, Garland is probably one of
               the most overrated bosses in the entire game, next to the Ark. Sure,
               his attacks do a lot of damage, but he has his secrets. See, Garland
               can have the Blind and Silence status alignments! This means that
               you can disallow him the use of magic, and his physical attacks will
               miss all the time. Joy! To bad Blind really isn't that great, be-
               cause all Garland has is magic. Silence is the sleeper hit in this
               fight, I just wish Garland had a weakness versus Mini, also. Anyway,
               your top priority should be using Silence. Dagger should be able to
               make it stick on the first try, second if you aren't that lucky.
               Once you have this down Garland really isn't that great. He still
               has some pretty powerful attacks, but Silence took the guts out of
               him. After you cast Silence, you will want to cast Reflect on every
               single party member. This is so Garland doesn't Stop anyone, which
               stinks. He also won't use Flare so joy. Garland's HP might be a bit
               discouraging, but when you see all the damage that your characters
               do on Garland you should think otherwise. At the end of the battle,
               remember to have everyone at full HP and give them proper Ether
               care. The following boss isn't that hard, but he can be if you go
               into it weak. Oh, one last thing. Have Vivi cast Slow if you want to
               make him attack even slower. You should only use this if you aren't
               anywhere near the projected level, however.
    
    Attacks:  *  Stop is Garland's most deadly attack. He will use it if you give
    --------     him a beat down, or if you didn't cast Reflect. See, Stop stops
                 (look at the name) a character for the rest of the battle. This
                 is pretty much brutal on all of your characters, since they all
                 play a key role in this fight. If you casted Reflect on everyone,
                 you will not see this attack once during the fight. Why? Garland
                 isn't stupid enough to cast Stop on himself! And don't worry about
                 him casting Reflect on himself and using magic from there, he
                 wouldn't dare to do so.
    
              *  Flare is another one of those "end all" attacks if everyone does
                 not have Reflect equipped. If you do, then it will just bounce
                 back and do damage on Garland. However, he isn't stupid enough to
                 do this. Anyway, if someone doesn't have Reflect on Garland will
                 use this deadly attack. Sadly, I do not know how much damage it
                 does because I had everyone equipped with the Reflect. All I know
                 is that is should be lethal. It only hits one character, also.
                 This is the main reason why Reflect is key in this battle.
    
              *  Oh, Garland does an attack, I forgot the name of it... It is
                 "Wave" or "Charge" or something like that. He does his Dragon Ball
                 Z stance and magically makes an energy ball and throws it at one
                 character. A complete rip off of Dragon Ball Z, I know. Anyway,
                 this attack only hits one character for around 1000 damage. It
                 isn't that bad, considering Dagger can heal it right up. It is
                 Garland's most deadly attack if you casted Reflect on everyone. I
                 advise that you look out for this attack. On characters like Vivi
                 and Dagger it can kill them.
    
              *  Psychokinesis is, like the name, a psycho weird attack. It will
                 pick a character up and throw them down on there head. It sounds
                 very painful, but it isn't. It will do around 750 damage to one
                 character. This should almost be pathetic at your point, 750
                 damage adds up, however. If he does it 7-8 times on one character,
                 which he does sometimes, you might find yourself in a sticky spot.
                 You shouldn't worry to much about this attack, all in all, but
                 look at the characters he does it on. If he keeps doing it on
                 one character, then obviously you would want to Cure them, or
                 possibly cast Shell on them.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Look at those items up there. Do they have any value to you? They
             might, depending on if you play Side Quests. If they do, then you
             should want to steal them. It will be hard without Master Thief or
             Bandit equipped, but it might be worth it in the end. Zidane will be
             doing around 3000 damage each turn with attacks. If you think that
             you can feasibly take the loss and have him steal, then go for it.
             However, I didn't bother to steal those items. I knew I could get all
             of them later in the game and decided not to. So, onto the duty.
             Zidane should steal if necessary, and use physical attacks. Obviously,
             use Thievery if it does more damage then his regular attacks. Zidane
             has tons of HP, so you don't have to use it wisely.
    
     Dagger: Dagger has a pretty big role in this fight, also. In the beginning of
             the fight, she is to cast Reflect on everyone in the party. This is
             so Garland's best attacks will be Reflected, and thereby not be used.
             Once you have that taken care of, you will also want to cast Silence
             and possibly Blind of Garland. These should stick in the first turns
             and make your life a lot easier. Now Garland is severely weakened, and
             won't be able to use his best attacks. Now it's time to be a full time
             healer for the party. Heal them as necessary. You should have both
             Cure and Cura, but not Curaga. It doesn't matter, you shouldn't find
             your characters needing that much HP. Use Hi-Potions instead of Cure
             if you have Chemist equipped. Lastly, Dagger can open a can of worms
             and cast Bahamut if you like. This will do a lot of damage to Garland.
             You might want to save Dagger's MP for the last battle, however.
    
       Vivi: At first, you might have one minor job before you have Vivi cast Flare
             up the yin yang. You might want to cast Slow on Garland. This will
             slow him down, and he will attack less often. This might help, but if
             you are at the recommended level then I would just stick to casting
             Flare. Vivi will do around 5000 damage on him. This is really good.
             If you want to be prudent about magic, then switch to Firaga or any
             of the better 'ga's. They should do at least 4000 damage. Vivi should
             keep casting these attacks unless you get in a sticky situation.
    
    Steiner: Steiner will be sucking all those precious Ethers that you got
             throughout the game. Flare Sword will do terrific damage to Garland,
             around 5000 to be exact. This is really good. Now you see why Gar-
             land's 40000 health really isn't a big deal. You will have to throw
             Steiner a Ether ever so often because Flare Sword costs a towering 60
             MP. If you want to be prudent magic-wise, then stick with Firaga. It
             should do a strong 4000 damage and give you a good bang for your buck.
             If you don't want to use magic, then stick to physically attacking.
             Steiner will still manage to do some good damage. Also, if he gets
             low on HP then have him use Darkside. This will regain all of his HP.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is a powerhouse in this battle. She can use Madeen for around
             3000 damage! This attack will vary; sometimes it will do 2000-4000
             damage. Madeen is a killer skill, but it has a killer MP cost. Use it
             wisely. Also, if you have Boost then please do it. It will make Madeen
             even stronger! Anyway, onto Eiko's full-blown duty. This duty is
             simple; Heal. Curaga and Cura are always your best friends. Use Hi-
             Potions if you want to use your magic prudently. Eiko can also cast
             Reflect and Shell and whatnot on the party if you want to. Reflect is
             actually very good because it some of Garland's spells and it
             hurts him instead of him absorbing it. In fact, Reflect is absolutely
             needed and you should cast it at the beginning of the fight.
    
    Amarant: Amarant's role is simple; Throw Rising Suns. These little things will
             do immense damage to Silver Dragon. I told you to only use Amarant if
             you had tons of Rising Suns and the reason for this is all Amarant has
             over Steiner is throwing stuff. Steiner does have Flare Sword, though,
             which sort of makes up for throwing stuff. If Amarant doesn't have
             anything to throw then stick to physically attacking and throwing
             (not literally) some skills in there if necessary.
    
      Freya: At this point in time, you should have a skill that's better then
             Lancer. I advise that you use it. I'm not updated with Freya so I
             wouldn't know. I didn't really use Freya that much. Use Reis' Wind
             if everyone doesn't have Auto-Regen. After you run out of MP, stick
             to Jumping.
    
      Quina: If you did choose Quina, I hope you substituted s/he for one of the
             healers or you really will have a tough fight! Quina should use White
             Wind and Hi-Potions to heal people. That is Quina's minor priority.
             S/he should also use 1,000 needles because it, yet again, is a re-
             liable attack that will always do 1000 damage. At this point in time,
             1000 damage might seem like nothing. However, Quina's attacks really
             aren't that hot, and vary greatly. Quina should also use Pumpkin Head
             if Quina's HP gets low. Finally, Quina might want to use Limit Glove
             if you somehow have 1 HP.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight Garland will collapse. Then we see a small FMV of the Invincible
    overhead. Kuja will talk about Garland being beaten by Zidane, and be filled
    with happiness. It seems he thinks someone has done his job for him. Then he
    will talk about being the new ruler of Terra, and he floats down to everyone. He
    will be happy that Zidane did everything for him, then Kuja will fight you. You
    heard right, we finally get to kick that cross dresser!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Kuja
    HP: 42500
    Steal: Light Robe, Carabini Mail, Ether
    Party: Zidane (47), Vivi (47), Dagger (42), Steiner (45)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 45 with exception to
    ------------     Dagger, who should be around 40.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying. Also Auto-Regen is a must.
                  *  Vivi should have the Black Robe so he can use Flare.
                  *  Dagger should have Bahamut ready to use.
                  *  Do not have Auto-Reflect!
                  *  Zidane might want to have Master Thief, Bandit, and Mug
                     equipped. This is only if you think the items are worthwhile.
                  *  Strongest weapon and armor is a must in this fight.
                  *  Wind absorbing/defending equipment will make this fight sad.
                  *  Dagger should know Silence.
    
    Overview:  Kuja can be a nuisance if you use magic in this fight. He will cast
    ---------  Flare Stare over and over and over and over every turn if you use
               magic. How do you get around this? Simply put: Don't use magic. You
               might be going "WHAT!?" right about now, but it is for a good rea-
               son. See, if you abuse the usage of magic, Kuja will abuse the usage
               of Flare Stare. Flare Stare, in short, is a very deadly attack. It
               will kill off party members if you let it. Read the attack section
               for more detail about it. This fight should go right along if you
               don't OD on magic. Your characters should get into a trance during
               this fight. When they do, I can honestly say that this is the time
               to use magic. Rather then that, Kuja is pretty easy. Just to give
               you a heads up, don't cast Reflect in this battle. This will leave
               Kuja with ONLY being able to cast Flare Stare. This is very, very,
               bad. Also, with Reflect you won't be able to heal your characters
               properly. If you try to heal them, it will bounce to Kuja. You can
               get around this with Hi-Potions and Phoenix Downs, however.
    
    Attacks:  *  Flare Stare is by far Kuja's mostly deadly attack. It does the
    --------     character's level times 35. So, if you had a character at 45 it
                 would do 45 * 35 which is 1575 damage. This may seem like a lot,
                 but that's why you have Dagger and Auto-Potion equipped! Some
                 characters should have Auto-Regen, also. This attack hurts every-
                 one, and it is by far one of the most annoying attacks on disc
                 three. (Unless you fought Ozma, then any of his attacks take dibs
                 over Flare Stare.) You can get around him not abusing the usage
                 of this attack by not using magic.
    
              *  Thundaga is a thunder-based attack that does a hell of a lot less
                 damage then Flare Stare, I'll tell you that right now! It will do
                 around 1000 damage to one character, which isn't a lot compared
                 to his fantastic other attack. You really want to be seeing this
                 attack in the battle. It can easily be cured by Dagger.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: We have somewhat of a dilemma here today, Folks. Kuja has some pretty
             good armor, but is it worth stealing? Well, if you are playing the
             game with the cotton robe trick then I would say yes. The Light Robe
             and Carabini Mail are good items on their own, and can be sold for
             a hefty profit. After this, have Zidane attack the cross dresser. He
             should do around 3000 damage, which is pretty good. Don't be discour-
             aged when Kuja says "Is that all you got?" because he is all talk.
             Zidane will undoubtedly get into Trance in this fight. This is very
             good, because he will be able to use Grand Lethal. This should do
             9999 damage every turn, and make you want to jump up and down with
             joy. Oh, and use Grand Lethal because you have enough MP to kill him
             without Ether usage.
    
       Vivi: You might be thinking that Vivi is out of the job in this fight, but
             he isn't. You will still want him to cast Flare every single turn, as
             usual. Just because Kuja will use Flare Stare if everyone casts magic
             doesn't mean everyone is going to cast magic. Flare is Vivi's best
             option here. He should still be doing a strong 5000 damage. Also, toss
             him an Ether if he gets low on MP.
    
    Steiner: Steiner cannot and should not and will not use magic sword attacks in
             this battle. The simple reason for this is Kuja will go bonkers and
             cast Flare Stare until you want to kill him. Steiner should stick with
             physical attacks. You might want him to use Flare Sword at the end of
             the fight to quickly expose of Kuja. Also, if Steiner gets low on HP
             have him use Darkside. He doesn't have high spirit so Auto-Regnen will
             not regenerate as often.
    
     Dagger: Dagger is really the one that was left out in the cold. If you have
             Auto-Reflect on, which was an absolute godsend in the previous
             battles, it will Reflect magic off of the characters and hit Kuja.
             This is very bad. You wouldn't want to heal the boss! Dagger should
             use Hi-Potions and Phoenix Downs. She can use Cura/Life on the charac-
             ters that don't have Reflect, however. Don't have her use Bahamut and
             keep her on hold via triangle so she can be a full time healer. Status
             effects don't affect Kuja, so don't waste turns with those.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is a powerhouse in this battle. She can use Madeen for around
             3000 damage! This attack will vary; sometimes it will do 2000-4000
             damage. Madeen is a killer skill, but it has a killer MP cost. Use it
             wisely. Also, if you have Boost then please do it. It will make Madeen
             even stronger! Anyway, onto Eiko's full-blown duty. This duty is
             simple; Heal. Curaga and Cura are always your best friends. Use Hi-
             Potions if you want to use your magic prudently. Eiko can also cast
             Reflect and Shell and whatnot on the party if you want to. Reflect is
             actually very good because it some of Garland's spells and it
             hurts him instead of him absorbing it. In fact, Reflect is absolutely
             needed and you should cast it at the beginning of the fight.
    
    Amarant: Amarant's role is simple; Throw Rising Suns. These little things will
             do immense damage to Silver Dragon. I told you to only use Amarant if
             you had tons of Rising Suns and the reason for this is all Amarant has
             over Steiner is throwing stuff. Steiner does have Flare Sword, though,
             which sort of makes up for throwing stuff. If Amarant doesn't have
             anything to throw then stick to physically attacking and throwing
             (not literally) some skills in there if necessary.
    
      Freya: At this point in time, you should have a skill that's better then
             Lancer. I advise that you use it. I'm not updated with Freya so I
             wouldn't know. I didn't really use Freya that much. Use Reis' Wind
             if everyone doesn't have Auto-Regen. After you run out of MP, stick
             to Jumping.
    
      Quina: If you did choose Quina, I hope you substituted s/he for one of the
             healers or you really will have a tough fight! Quina should use White
             Wind and Hi-Potions to heal people. That is Quina's minor priority.
             S/he should also use 1,000 needles because it, yet again, is a re-
             liable attack that will always do 1000 damage. At this point in time,
             1000 damage might seem like nothing. However, Quina's attacks really
             aren't that hot, and vary greatly. Quina should also use Pumpkin Head
             if Quina's HP gets low. Finally, Quina might want to use Limit Glove
             if you somehow have 1 HP.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Kuja will collapse like Garland, but then it seems he has gotten a Trance. His
    hair will turn red and he will look stronger. This is almost a complete Dragon
    Ball Z rip off! Anyway, Kuja will do Ultima and it will, needless to say, end
    the battle. Then Kuja will talk about what he did to get such a powerful Trance.
    It seems that, even before the moogle Tranced, he knew about what power it had.
    So he got the eye-ball in the sky and took everyone's souls. Then someone used
    it to make his Trance more powerful. Afterwards, Kuja will kick Garland off the
    cliff in a FF rip off that they did before. He will threaten the party, and then
    Garland will somehow speak to him. Garland will infuriate Kuja, saying that he
    will die soon because he is a mortal. The ironic part about it is that he is
    nothing more then the black mages that he created. Kuja just loses it now, and
    we see a terrific FMV where Kuja starts to destroy all of Terra.
    
    We go back to the team who has apparently gotten up and are OK. Eiko will say
    that the only way out of here is to get the Invincible. The team will go get the
    Invincible while Zidane and Dagger decide to rescue the Genomes. Follow this
    path until you get to a teleporter. Eyes will pop up but Dagger decides they
    need to press on and save the Genomes. Then you have control of Zidane again.
    Just follow her to the teleporter. Then we see one of the most romantic scenes
    on disc three. However, before they can kiss, the teleporter beams them up. We
    go back to the other party. Everyone will run to the Invincible besides Amarant
    and Quina. Amarant will continue being "badass" and walk. Quina, of course as
    you might know, will be starving to death and decide to eat an eye. Luckily
    Freya comes back and yells at Quina. We just dodged two great scenes. Why must
    they mock us!?
    
    Then Zidane and Dagger will teleporter to a familiar place. Follow this path
    south until you go into the green light room. Then Zidane and Dagger will decide
    to split up so they can evacuate the Genomes easier. We go back to the party,
    who is without Quina. S/he arrives at the teleport, and everyone wonders why
    s/he was at the bottom of the ship. Then they go up to the bridge. Zidane runs
    down to the girl and we find out that her name is Mikoto. More importantly, we
    find out that she was a replacement for Zidane and Kuja. Garland finally got his
    act together, there is a wonder why he didn't make them all girl specimens...
    Uh, anyway, the two will talk about all that life stuff. Then they will all
    board the ship.
    
    We see another beautiful FMV of everyone escaping Terra in Kuja's ship. Then we
    go inside the Invincible. Amarant will wonder if Kuja will really have perished.
    He says it in a way as if he wants him to be alive. Zidane talks about the Iifa
    Tree, and how Garland said it was the gateway between Terra and Gaia. Steiner
    will run down and everyone will go up to the bridge. Then we see clouds.
    Actually, the rest of the party corrects Zidane and tells him that this is
    actually mist. We end disc three, knowing that Kuja is still out there.

    After a series of FMVs, you will be back at Black Mage Village. This time,
    however, the Genomes are with the black mages. Don't they just go together? Both
    are somewhat lifeless. What all the events that take place here. I don't want to
    explain all of it. Afterwards, you will be on the Invincible. From here, you
    should probably take the time to level up and such. Look at the Level Up section
    for more details on where to go. You will also want to get the best equipment
    and finish up side quests. It will really help when fighting in the last area.
    Also, before you even think about going further into this walkthrough, look at
    every preparation for the upcoming boss battles. You will probably want to have
    elemental absorbing equipment and such. Overall there are a lot of things to do
    now that should be done. Once you are ready, go to the Iifa Tree. You will a
    pink light above it. Enter here and we will see a really cool FMV. Then the
    Invincible will enter the pink light and you will engage in a boss fight.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Nova Dragon
    HP: 55000
    Steal: Grand Armor, Remedy
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  Equip any armor that absorbs wind and water during this fight.
    ------------     If you can't find absorbing equipment, then try to find some
                     100% reductions.
                  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
                  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
                  *  Dragon Killer ability will help out a lot in this fight.
    
    Overview:  This fight isn't very hard if you are prepared correctly. Nova
    ---------  Dragon has an arsenal of deadly attacks, but you should be able to
               survive it if you have good spirit.
    
    Attacks:  *  Tidal Wave is Nova Dragon's most deadly attack because it does
    --------     great damage. It will do around 1000 damage to every character in
                 the party. It's pretty bad, but you should be able to survive it
                 with Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen. If you have water absorbing equipment
                 on you will absorb the damage!
    
              *  Shockwave is another one of Nova Dragon's deadly attacks. It will
                 do around 1000 damage to every character. Again, with the right
                 abilities it should be easy.
    
              *  Aerial Slash is wind type damage that hits one character. It is
                 pretty powerful, but not as bad the other two above. Wind absorb-
                 ing damage will make this a joke.
    
              *  Twister does completely random damage, and is wind elemental type.
                 Its damage is random, but I find that if you are pulverizing Nova
                 Dragon that he will use it more and it will do bad damage. It's
                 wind type, again, so absorbing it will make this boss fight easy.
    
              *  Psychokinesis is a pretty weak physical attack that will pick
                 someone up in the air, turn them around, and throw them on the
                 ground. It is similar to Garland's in that way, and because it
                 does around the same amount of damage. This is on one character,
                 mind you.
    
              *  Counterattack isn't all that bad. It won't do much damage, but it
                 still can be a nuisance if you have little HP. I wouldn't worry
                 about it.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Zidane will want to steal until he gets the Grand Armor. Then he
             should physically attack or use Thievery.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's main role in this fight is to use Shock. If you have some-
             thing better, or something almost as good, use that.
    
      Freya: Freya should have Dragon Killer on. Her attacks will do a lot of dam-
             age. Have her jump or use Dragon's Crest. These will do awesome
             amounts of damage.
    
       Eiko: Eiko should be the parties healer. Use Curaga and Life as needed. She
             can also use Madeen if she feels like it.
    
       Vivi: Vivi should have Reflect up on himself. With Reflect X2, he should
             cast Flare on himself. This will do tons of damage. If you do not have
             Reflect X2, then just stick to using Flare on him.
    
     Dagger: Dagger's role is exactly the same as Eiko's. The only difference is
             that she should use Bahamut instead of Madeen.
    
    Amarant: Amarant should physically attack, use his best flair, or throw some-
             thing powerful. He should also use Chakra and Revive as needed.

                                    6.2  -  Memoria
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Enemies:
    --------
    Ash (25500 HP)
    Behemoth (24000 HP)
    Chimera (22000 HP)
    Iron Man (21000 HP)
    Stilva (22000 HP)
    Malaris (Boss)
    Tiamat (Boss)
    Kraken (Boss)
    Lich (Boss)
    Hades (Optional Boss)
    
    When you enter, Garland's ghost will appear and tell you some valuable
    information about your situation. Note that he isn't a bad guy anymore, and is
    probably rooting for you. Go north and look in the eastern part of this room to
    find Freya's ultimate weapon. Equip this on her, if you do not have it already.
    It is a great weapon to have. All the enemies here are very powerful, and have a
    lot of HP. You might want to level up here until you can take all the enemies
    here. This might take a little while, but these enemies give huge amounts of
    experience and AP.
    
    Memoria is probably the easiest place to navigate in the entire game. I do not
    know if they were tired when making it or what. You can talk to the best card
    collector in this room, just try to talk in the air. Afterwards, go to the next
    screen. This room should be called "Recollection." You will find Zidane's second
    best weapon on the ledge up the stairs in this room. This weapon is called The
    Tower, take it if you want. Continue until you reach a room called "Outer Path."
    You will want to equip all fire resistant equipment in this room. I suggest that
    you equip absorbing fire equipment to make this next battle a lot easier. When
    you are ready, go up the slope and you will fight another boss.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Maliris
    HP: 60000
    Steal: Genji Armor, Ultima Sword, Masamine
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  Equip any armor that absorbs fire magic during this fight.
    ------------     If you can't find absorbing equipment, then try to find some
                     100% reductions.
                  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
                  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
    
    Overview:  Maliris isn't that tough of a fight either. She has some pretty
    ---------  nasty attacks but overall she isn't that tough with the preparations
               all checked off. She does attack very fast, however.
    
    Attacks:  *  Flame Slash is a fire type attack that does a lot of damage. It
    --------     should kill all the weaker characters like Eiko. It only hits one
                 person, and that's about the best part. You can absorb it if you
                 want, but then she will use it less.
    
              *  Mustard Bomb will obviously kill a player and render them useless.
                 She tends not to use this much, however.
    
              *  Sword Quicker is an attack which she will use a lot. It doesn't
                 do much damage, however. The bad part about it is it will not heal
                 you. Don't you just love equipment...
    
              *  Firaga does a medium amount of damage and can kill a player if you
                 don't have Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen. It shouldn't be feared, how-
                 ever. This will also heal you if you can absorb fire.
    
              *  Esuna will heal her if she gets any unwanted status effects.
    
              *  Reflect will reflect magic. You shouldn't be using magic, anyhow.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: The items in this fight are pretty good to steal. I recommend that you
             get the Genji Armor and then hack away with Zidane. Physical attacks
             or Thievery will do just fine.
    
    Steiner: Steiner is to use Shock until he runs out of MP. Then you can either
             throw him an ether or have him physically attack.
    
      Freya: Freya's main job in this fight is to use Dragon's Crest. When she runs
             out of MP, you can have her Jump.
    
       Eiko: Eiko should heal the party. You might also want to cast Reflect on
             everyone so Firaga bounces back. She should also use Madeen in free
             turns.
    
       Vivi: Vivi should use Blizzaga until he runs out of MP.
    
     Dagger: Dagger will have the exact same role as Eiko.
    
    Amarant: Amarant should throw anything he has, use Flairs, or attack.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Continue up the slope and in the next room you will see Alexandria. This room
    will have Pink Clouds in it, also. It should be called "The Past." Look around
    of the Gravestone and get the Angel's Flute, one of Eiko's best weapons. Look
    around the right of the gravestone to find a hidden save point. Save your game
    and follow the path to the right. After the scene you should reach a staircase.
    Equip any Wind resistant or absorbing armor again. Proceed further and you will
    have another boss fight.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Tiamat
    HP: 60000
    Steal: Grand Helmet, Blood Sword, Feather Boots
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    
    Preparation:  *  Equip any armor that absorbs wind during this fight. If you
    ------------     can't find absorbing equipment, then try to find some 100%
                     reductions.
                  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
                  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
                  *  Body Temp is a must.
    
    Overview:  This can easily be one of the most annoying bosses in the game. Tia-
    ---------  mat is like a super smart boss. He will use magic that absorbs your
               Strength and Magic. This will render that character almost useless.
               He also has Absorb MP, which is bad on virtually any character.
    
    Attacks:  *  Absorb Strength will render your fighting characters useless. Con-
    --------     sider them dead where they stand. It will make their attacks do
                 little damage.
    
              *  Absorb Magic is the same as Absorb Strength, but it will make any
                 magic users useless.
    
              *  Absorb MP is bad on all characters because you lose MP. This can
                 be "healed" with an Ether, however.
    
              *  Snort will eject a character from the fight. It sucks.
    
              *  Jet Fire will try to make all characters have the "Heat" status
                 effect. This is why you have Body Temp equipped. This attack will
                 be very bad if you don't.
    
              *  Silent Claw is a physical attack that will do medium damage. It
                 shouldn't be that bad. The only problem is it just about always
                 casts Silence on the character.
    
              *  Twister is probably his worst attack. It will do around 1000 da-
                 mage but you should have wind absorbing equipment on.
    
              *  He will cast Float on all characters from time to time so Twister
                 does even more damage. This might be good or bad.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Zidane has nothing to steal in this battle, so he should stick to att-
             acking. Remember to use Thievery if necessary. Absorb Strength will
             be bad. You will have to change to Thievery if he does this.
    
    Steiner: Steiner should use Shock until Tiamat casts Silence on him. Then he
             should use an Ether and cure Silence, then start up again. If he uses
             any of the absorbs, then switch to which one he didn't do.
    
      Freya: Freya should be using Dragon's Crest until she runs out of MP. Then
             she has the liberty to Jump.
    
       Eiko: Eiko should cast Curaga on the party to keep them at tiptop shape. You
             will also want her to be on hold before Tiamat attacks.
    
       Vivi: He should use Flare on Tiamat or anything else that is better.
    
     Dagger: Dagger has the same role as Eiko.
    
    Amarant: Amarant should be throwing stuff like there is no tomorrow.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After you defeat Tiamat, look around in the western part of the room until you
    find Amarant's Rune Claws. Equip these on him. Continue following the paths
    until you reach a glowing orb. You should save your game. Keep on the path and
    Garland will start talking to Zidane again. That's no big deal. Continue until
    you reach a water room. Quina will try to swim, but s/he isn't a very good
    swimmer. Quina will also try to catch a fish, but you know she won't be able to
    catch it. Now you can look behind the rocks in the northern part of the screen
    to find Hades. I don't have a strategy for him currently. Before you continue,
    equip any anti-water equipment that you have currently. Then follow the path and
    you will have another boss fight.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Kraken
    HP: 60000
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  Equip any armor that absorbs water during this fight.
    ------------     If you can't find absorbing equipment, then try to find some
                     100% reductions.
                  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
                  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
    
    Overview:  Kraken is the water guardian, but he one of the easiest guardians in
    ---------  the whole game. His attacks don't do much, either. He consists of
               three parts, two of which being tentacles that have around 18000
               damage each. Overall he isn't that hard.
    
    Attacks:  *  Waterga... what a weird name. And no, Vivi never can get this
    --------     attack. It will do around 1000 damage to everyone, which is not
                 that bad if you are at a high enough level.
    
              *  Water Gun hits everyone for around 750 damage. It's water elemen-
                 tal, however. If you have any water equipment then it will either
                 heal you or the damage will be severely reduced.
    
              *  Ink does a small amount of damage and casts Blind on a character.
                 No big deal here.
    
              *  Leg is a weak physical attack. It is very laughable.
    
              *  Esuna will heal status alignments if you dare to inflict any.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: There isn't that much to still so Zidane should be physically attack-
             ing. Of course, he is to use Thievery if it is better. Lastly, I found
             myself getting into Trance in this battle. I don't know why, I think
             the other bosses made my Trance Gauge go bonkers. Anyway, use Meo
             Twister if this happens.
    
    Steiner: Steiner should use Shock or Thundaga Sword if he has Vivi in the
             party with him.
    
      Freya: Freya should use Dragon's Crest and Jump.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is the healer of this fight, though I don't think it is needed.
             She will use all the basic healing spells. She should also cast Madeen
             so we can hack away at all three body parts at once.
    
       Vivi: Vivi should use Thundaga or Flare, whichever you think is better.
    
     Dagger: Dagger has the same job as Eiko, but she should be summoning Ramuh/
             Bahamut.
    
    Amarant: Amarant has to throw all the Rising Suns he has.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the fight, continue up the stairs. Go northeast and Zidane will ask
    Garland some questions and we see Oeilvert. Go left of here and you will find a
    save point. Save your game, then go to the next room. Look around in the western
    part of this room to find the Mace of Zeus. Continue to a ladder and go up.
    Before we continue, equip Auto-Float or earth absorbing equipment. Then walk
    forward to another boss fight.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Lich
    HP: 60000
    Steal: Genji Gloves, Black Robe
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    
    Preparation:  *  Equip any armor that absorbs earth during this fight.
    ------------     If you can't find absorbing equipment, then try to find some
                     100% reductions.
                  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
                  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
                  *  No one is to be at a level divisible by 5.
                  *  Have Locomotion equipped before you fight.
    
    Overview:  When have seen Lich before. Zidane and Quina took him on at the -----
    ----  Earth place. He was, and still is, the Earth Guardian. This time
               around he is a lot more powerful. He is probably one of the toughest
               bosses you have fought yet.
    
    Attacks:  *  Death will instantly kill a party member sometimes. This is a very
    --------     bad attack.
    
              *  Level 5 Death will kill all party members that have levels divi-
                 sible by 5. You could find a half-dead party.
    
              *  Stop will almost always stop a character. The only way to unstop
                 them is to have Eiko cast Dispel. This is a very bad attack but
                 you _should_ have Locomotion equipped.
    
              *  Doom didn't do anything to me, sadly.
    
              *  His physical attacks are back and better then ever. They will do
                 around 1200 damage to one character. This is more then plausible.
    
              *  All earth elemental attacks that he has are meaningless. You
                 _should_ be absorbing versus earth or at least have Auto-Float
                 equipped.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Zidane will want to hack away at him. Nothing to steal here.
    
    Steiner: Steiner should cast and recast shock until his head spins.
    
      Freya: Freya has the duty of casting Dragon's Crest. She also can Jump.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is the main damage dealer in this fight. She can cast Holy on him
             for _a lot_ of damage. Also have her cast Dispel on the characters if
             they get Stopped. Oh, and use Curaga as needed.
    
       Vivi: Vivi is to cast his strongest magic. This should be Flare.
    
     Dagger: Dagger has the same role as Eiko, but she can't cast Holy. V_V
    
    Amarant: Amarant has to throw everything he has.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After you defeated Lich, it's finally time to leave Memoria. If, by some rare
    chance, you have a save file that is less then 12 hours, look around on the
    eastern side of the room to find the Excalibur II. This is the best weapon in
    the entire game, and it can be equipped on Steiner. Continue down the path until
    you end up in space. Walk to the northeastern part of the room until you see a
    green light. Keep running towards it until you reach it. Go inside and follow
    this path until you reach the last save orb. You can now leave here if you want
    to, or you can continue through the portal. Then we will be in the Crystal
    World.

    Necron (Final Boss)
    
    The enemy list might be pretty intimidating. You will be fighting pumped down
    versions of all those guardians. They don't give an experience, so I advise that
    you merely run away. Just follow the path until you reach the another save orb.
    Save the game and continue to the next room. You will meet your best friend. I
    think you know who that is. It seems he got a new pet to fight you, and I am not
    just talking about Brahne.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Deathguise
    HP: 55000
    Steal: Duel Claws, Elixir
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  Equip the best armor possible.
    ------------  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
                  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
                  *  No one is to be at a level divisible by 5.
                  *  Have Locomotion equipped before you fight.
    
    Overview:  Deathguise really isn't that tough of a boss. He abuses Death rights
    ---------  but that is about it. You shouldn't have much trouble unless you
               completely neglect reviving fallen characters. In the beginning of
               the fight he will always use Meteor. This sometimes does 300 damage
               and other times it does 2500 damage. It's completely random. If it
               does a lot of damage then reset and throw the dice again. After
               that, it is pretty much smooth sailing.
    
    Attacks:  *  Death will instantly kill a party member sometimes. This is a very
    --------     bad attack.
    
              *  Level 5 Death will kill all party members that have levels divi-
                 sible by 5. You could find a half-dead party.
    
              *  He uses Meteor as an "opening move" at the beginning of the
                 battle. Basically, the computer throws a die and sees how much
                 damage will be inflicted upon you. It could be a small amount,
                 then it could be somewhere in the 2000s. You might want to reset
                 if it is very high. Overall this attack is just like Twister.
    
              *  His physical attacks will do around 750 damage and hit one person.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: You might notice the terrible items that you can steal from Death-
             guise. You should already have the Duel Claws and plenty of Elixirs
             at hand. So you shouldn't steal items during this fight. Instead,
             have Zidane physically attack Deathguise. You can also use Thievery
             if you like. Don't worry about MP because after this battle you can
             go back to a save point and heal it back up. Zidane's main role is
             attacking in this fight.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's MP might be low, but I don't care, to be quite frank. His
             Shock does _so_ much damage that even if you use 20 Ethers it is worth
             it completely. Steiner's role is to cast Shock, or any other good
             sword art. If you have a very powerful weapon, like the Excalibur I
             or II, then you might want to just attack. However, you should mainly
             be using Shock in this fight. If you somehow have Vivi in your group,
             don't mind the Magic Sword. It won't do as much damage.
    
      Freya: As we all know, Freya has a simple role. It is to cast Dragon's Crest
             on Deathguise. This will do a lot of damage, depending on how many
             dragons you killed during the game. This is all she should be doing
             during the fight. Use Ethers has necessary. Also, if you somehow don't
             have Auto-Regen on all characters cast Reis' Wind please.
    
       Eiko: Eiko can be on offense or defense, depending on how you want to fight.
             In most cases, you will want her on offense. This is because Auto-
             Potion/Auto-Regen will take up her job of healing. So, it is your job
             to cast Holy over and over. This will do around 9999 damage to Death-
             guise. She can also heal, but you probably won't need too.
    
       Vivi: Vivi should cast his strongest magic spell.
    
     Dagger: Dagger should be a healer, though she can also use Bahamut or Ark if
             you want to.
    
    Amarant: Amarant should be throwing semi-good weapon that you have duplicates
             of or no longer need. He should primarily be throwing Rising Suns,
             though, because we can use those for the upcoming fights.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the battle, Kuja will be astonished by your victory. Now you can go back
    to the previous room and save your game. Remember to heal everyone's HP and MP
    before you go back. The next two fights will be brutal. I suggest that you equip
    Auto-Potion and Auto-Regen. I also recommend that you equip Auto-Haste, Auto-
    Life and as many anti-status effects as possible. The most important ones out of
    the bunch are Antibody, Clear Headed, and Body Temp. Turn off all those useless
    abilities like Level Up and Ability Up or anything else that isn't that great.
    When you are ready, go back to the previous room.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Trance Kuja
    HP: 55000
    Steal: Rebirth Ring, White Robe
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
    ------------  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
                  *  No one is to be at a level divisible by 5.
                  *  "I suggest that you equip Auto-Potion and Auto-Regen. I also
                      recommend that you equip Auto-Haste, Auto-Life and as many
                      anti-status effects as possible. The most important ones out
                      of the bunch are Antibody, Clear Headed, and Body Temp. Turn
                      off all those useless abilities like Level Up and Ability Up
                      or anything else that isn't that great."
    
    Overview:  Tranced Kuja is NOTHING like your previous encounter with him. This
    ---------  time he doesn't do attacks that instantly end battles, or any other
               crap that Square should of put in here. This time all Kuja has going
               for him is he is fast. Almost all of his other attacks are the
               exact same as the last fight you had with him. He isn't very tough,
               and a big disappointment.
    
    Attacks:  *  Flare Stare is by far Kuja's mostly deadly attack. It does the
    --------     character's level times 35. So, if you had a character at 45 it
                 would do 45 * 35 which is 1575 damage. This may seem like a lot,
                 but that's why you have Dagger and Auto-Potion equipped! Some
                 characters should have Auto-Regen, also. This attack hurts every-
                 one, and it is by far one of the most annoying attacks on disc
                 three. (Unless you fought Ozma, then any of his attacks take dibs
                 over Flare Stare.)
    
              *  Flare is his second deadly attack. It seems that Kuja has learned
                 from the black mages that black magic rocks. Flare will do around
                 1500 damage to one character. It is more then feasible if you
                 have a good healer at hand. Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen will suck it
                 right up, also. Overall, this is a deadly attack.
    
              *  Holy does holy damage on a target. Well, not really. You will find
                 it doing around 1200 damage. That is not bad, considering the
                 above two attacks make this attack look like regular Kuja. This
                 attack is not, in my opinion.
    
              *  Reflect just puts up Reflect on him. You can counter it by putting
                 Reflect on someone in your party. Then have them bounce magic on
                 that person and it will hit Kuja. Reflect really digs Kuja's
                 grave, as now he cannot heal himself.
    
              *  Lastly, Kuja has Curaga. This will do a pathetic 2400 damage
                 healed every turn. To make him stop casting Curaga, because he
                 will keep doing it, cast Reflect on him. He isn't smart enough to
                 bounce Curaga off of you, either, so don't worry about that.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: If you look at the items you can steal, you should see that it is
             nothing at all. So, have him attack. He can either use Thievery or
             just plain out attack physically. Either one will do. Just do the one
             that does the most damage.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's main duty is to cast Shock over and over and over. If he has
             better Sword Arts, then please use it. If he does more damage with
             regular attacks, then of course you would use those. Don't use Sword
             Magic, however. It is a waste of MP.
    
      Freya: If you have been killing dragons throughout this entire game, which
             you should have done, then have Freya use Dragon's Crest. This will do
             an immense number of damage, depending on how many dragons you have
             killed. Also, if Freya runs out of MP then have her use "High Jump."
             This should do a lot of damage, also.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is "not yet an attacker, not yet a healer." Her main focus in
             this battle is to cast Holy on Kuja. This will do a ton of damage on
             him, so don't worry about that. You just have to worry when Kuja casts
             Reflect on himself. Then you will want to cast Reflect on yourself
             then bounce Holy at him. Also, Eiko is the main healer of this battle.
             She is to heal with Curaga ever so often.
    
       Vivi: Flare. Or. Better.
    
     Dagger: Same. As. Eiko.
    
    Amarant: Throw.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    We know how this will end. Kuja will cast Ultima and you know the rest. We will
    see Zidane at a place called "Hill of Despair." After he wakes up, Zidane hears
    a voice that tells him about Kuja and Garland. Zidane gets mad and decides that
    he will go to nothing to stop it. Then you will be able to choose four party
    members again. Choose whoever is the best of the best. All your HP and MP will
    be cured, so don't worry about that. Then we see the other four party members
    give energy to the ones you choice. Then we fight the final boss.

    Boss Name: Necron (Final Boss)
    HP: 55000
    Steal: Elixir, Elixir
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    
    Preparation:  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
    ------------  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
                  *  No one is to be at a level divisible by 5.
                  *  "I suggest that you equip Auto-Potion and Auto-Regen. I also
                      recommend that you equip Auto-Haste, Auto-Life and as many
                      anti-status effects as possible. The most important ones out
                      of the bunch are Antibody, Clear Headed, and Body Temp. Turn
                      off all those useless abilities like Level Up and Ability Up
                      or anything else that isn't that great."
    
    Overview:  Necron is the final boss of the game! He is actually pretty diffi-
    ---------  cult, but still doesn't compare to any of the great optional bosses
               that Final Fantasy IX has to offer. Necron's best attack is Grand
               Cross, which will do random status effects on everyone. This is com-
               pletely random. Sometimes you might get all the bad ones, sometimes
               the good ones, and sometimes nothing at all! It really is about the
               roll of the dice. Anyway, Necron is really fast and he will most
               likely follow up Grand Cross with Neutron Ring. This will do 2000
               damage to the party and completely sucks. He will do these attacks
               at the beginning of battle, so it is almost unavoidable. Also,
               Necron has an arsenal of regular attacks along with stuff that will
               make the damage on him look funny. The worst part, however, is the
               Grand Cross/Neutron Ring spell. Once you get passed that, this fight
               is a lot easier. Focus on attack power and hold nothing back. If you
               have a Dark Matter or two do not hesitate to throw it at Necron for
               an easy 9999 damage. This is the final boss in the game so don't
               hold back one bit. Elixir's should be used, and everything that you
               have should be thrown. Overall this is one great fight.
    
    Attacks:  *  Grand Cross is by far the most deadly attack in the game. It also
    --------     holds the title as the most random. It will do various status eff-
                 ects on all characters. Sometimes you get the not-so-bad status
                 effects, sometimes you get the good ones, and sometimes you don't
                 get any status effects at all! This is one mean attack, but you
                 will only see him use this once at the beginning of the fight. You
                 should be able to dispose of him before he has the chance to use
                 it again.
    
              *  Neutron Ring is the second most deadly attack in this game, not
                 counting optional boss attacks of course. It will do around 2000
                 damage to all characters. He uses this right after he uses Grand
                 Cross, so you will be very weak after he does both of those
                 spells! This is one very deadly attack that might kill all the
                 magicians of your party and severely weaken the fighters. It's one
                 attack that kills all.
    
              *  Blue Shockwave is an attack that will reduce one characters HP to
                 1. This really is not that bad, considering we have had worse done
                 to us over the course of this game. I remember when Antlion was
                 using an attack that gave the whole party 1 HP! Blue Shockwave is
                 still a deadly attack that should not be laughed at, but I still
                 think it is the third most deadly attack Necron has to offer.
    
              *  Meteor does random damage, but in this fight it usually goes to-
                 wards the higher side of things. You might find this destroying
                 your party and then barely scratching it. In the final battle it
                 usually doesn't do 50 damage to all characters, or anything. This
                 attack is not that bad, overall.
    
              *  Flare is one of the best attacks you will see in this fight. It
                 will do around 1500 damage to one character. This is nothing to
                 fear and Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen can heal it right back up. It is
                 still a powerful attack, but nothing considering what they could
                 of done. Which brings me to my next sentence... Why didn't they
                 change "Flare" to "Flare Stare." It would have made a lot more
                 sense, this being the final boss and all. I just don't get it. Re-
                 flect will knock this one right back at Necron.
    
              *  Protect and Shell are attacks that he will cast at the beginning
                 of the fight. From that point further you won't do as much damage
                 to him. This is pretty bad, but not unbearable.
    
              *  Firaga, Blizzaga, and Thundaga are attacks that you will want to
                 see all throughout this fight. They don't do as much damage as the
                 other attacks! Still, they do a copious amount of damage. Of
                 course, these are elemental type damages, and you might get healed
                 if you have the proper equipment on. You might find these attacks
                 healing you every turn if you got all your equipment in order.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Stealing is not an option because Necron doesn't have anything good to
             steal. Zidane should either be physically attacking or using Thievery.
             Whichever one is better. If you have been stealing "regularly"
             throughout the entire game it should do around 3000 damage, which is
             not bad. You have to consider Shell and Protect when you physically
             attack Necron. Thievery will ALWAYS do the listed amount of damage.
             So, play with both attacks and see which one does more damage. Also,
             you might want Zidane to be the Dark Matter thrower.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's main job in this fight is to cast Shock, or anything better
             he might have up his sleeve. Climhazzard, Stock Break, and Minus
             Strike are just to name a few of the other ones. If you find yourself
             low on HP with Steiner, you have the option to use Minus Strike or
             Darkside. Minus Strike will do Steiner's maximum HP minus his current
             HP, while Darkside will restore nearly all of his HP in a physical
             attack on Necron. You decide which one is better in the situation. I
             would use Minus Strike at the end of the fight and Darkside at the
             beginning of the fights.
    
      Freya: Freya's role in this battle is Dragon's Crest. This attack is decided
             by how many dragons you have killed thus far in the game. It is a
             really good attack that should do around 2500 damage at least. If she
             runs out of MP then you can give her an Ether or Elixir. Then she can
             proceed to using Dragon's Crest. Optionally, you can have her use the
             High Jump ability and see if it does more damage to Necron. In some
             cases it will, and in some it won't.
    
       Eiko: Eiko's duty in this fight is simple. She is to heal the whole party
             throughout the fight and NEVER ATTACK. This is because Necron will
             probably get an attack in before Eiko can attack and thus cause havoc.
             You have to keep Eiko on hold until you need her. When Grand Cross and
             Neutron Ring roll around she will be almost invaluable with her Dispel
             and Esuna abilities. Curaga is also pretty awesome. If you keep track
             of Necron's HP, you might want Eiko to finish him off with a Holy or
             something to end the fight.
    
       Vivi: Strongest magic please.
    
     Dagger: See: Eiko.
    
    Amarant: Amarant is to throw everything you have. The chairs, the sofa, every-
             thing he can get his greedy hands on.
    
      Quina: Only use s/he if you have Frog Drop and it does a decent amount of
             damage.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    You have to give Mr. Morrid all three coffees before you go to Terra.
    
    Mocha Coffee: Go to South gate, which is near Chocobo's Forest. (It should be
                  on your world map.) Once there, look in the southeastern part
                  of this area and you should find it.
    
    Kirman Coffee: In Madain Sari, go to Eiko's Kitchen. This should be right
                   passed her Dining Room area. You should see a stove in her
                   kitchen, and it will be on the outside. Now, search the picnic
                   table on the left side of this area. You should be able to find
                   it. This area is also called Eiko's Porch.
    
    Burman Coffee: This has to be done in disc three, when Zidane is at the card
                   tournament. Now, before you enter you have to go to Dali. Get
                   out of Treno and go west until you hit South Gate. Walk around
                   South Gate and take the left path to Dali's Gate. Go through
                   and go over to Dali. Once inside the town, go to the mayor's
                   house that you could not go to before. This is right below the
                   windmill. Once inside you will notice that the mayor is gone and
                   has left his child. Move the stove and check the mayor's desk
                   three times to get the Mayor's Key. Go to the windmill and look
                   around the right side of the Chocobo Pen until you find the
                   coffee.
    
    Now go over to the old man's hill near Dali. Give them to him.

    These Stellazios are in order of when you should get them in the game. If you
    are playing through, you might want to check back here once in a while to find
    out where the next Stellazio is.

    Stellazio: Aries
     Location: Dali
         Area: Windmill, First Floor

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stellazio: Cancer
     Location: Burmecia
         Area: Second area going inside
      Where!?: Cancer is in the second area when you first enter Burmecia. You

               to find Cancer.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stellazio: Gemini
     Location: Treno
         Area: Treno Gates, Entrance

               thirteen times and Gemini will appear.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stellazio: Taurus
     Location: Treno
         Area: Item Shop area, right path at entrance

               the right stairs. Then, walk down the path north about halfway and
               to the right you will see a ladder. Go down and you will be at a
               small Item Shop. If you go around to the northeast part of the
               little shop you will find Taurus.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stellazio: Scorpio
     Location: Quan's Dwelling (Near Treno)
         Area: Entrance Area
      Where!?: From the entrance of Quan's Dwelling, go over to the ladder and go
               down to the lower level. Then, go down the hot springs, hugging
               the perimeter of them as you go along. You should get a field icon
               around there to pick up Scorpio.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stellazio: Virgo
     Location: Black Mage Village
         Area: Guest Room, Inn

         Area: Fountain Area

    Stellazio: Leo
     Location: Alexandria Castle
         Area: Left Tower
      Where!?: From the entrance to the castle, move left. Then, go inside the

               find it.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stellazio: Sagittatius
     Location: Lindblum
         Area: Before Shopping Area, Business District
      Where!?: Note that you can only find this after Lindblum is rebuilt. From
               the Gysahl Pickle stand, go left and up the small slope. Look
               around the cart to find it.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Stellazio: Capricorn
     Location: Daguerreo
         Area: Entrance Area

    Stellazio: Ophiuchus

         Area: Entrance Area
      Where!?: You must have all given all 12 Stellazios to Queen Stella before
               you can do this. Say that their is another Stellazio, and she will
               ask you to find it. Go back to Quan's Dwelling and look around
               where Scorpio was. It should be in the same spot.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    When you give Queen Stella a Stellazio, she will give you a reward for giving it
    to her. These are the rewards that you get when you bring any of the Stellazio's

    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    Zidane
    ------
    "You don't need a reason to help people."
    
    "You don't need a reason to grab people."
    
    "To understand something is interesting,
    but what's already understood is boring."
    
    Amarant
    -------
    "The victor lives, and the defeated die.
    You know the rules."
    
    "His only constant is his unpredictability."
    
    "'He who hesitates is lost.'
    You'd best remember that."
    
    "Ah-ah, I know what your thinking, 'Did he throw six Wind Edges or only five?'
    Well, to tell you the truth, I've kind of lost track myself in all this
    excitement. But being as these are Rune Claws, the most powerful claws in the
    world, and would slice your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one
    question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?"
    
    Kuja
    ----
    "The weak lose their freedom to the strong.
    Such is the way of the strong.
    And it is the providence of nature that only
    the strong survive. That is why I needed strength.
    I learned of power that would daunt even him...
    over ten years ago."
    
    "Peace is but a show of death,
    Desperate to forget its painful past...
    Though we hope for promising years
    After shedding a thousand tears,
    Yesterday's sorrow constantly nears.
    And while the moon still shines blue,
    By dawn, it will turn to scarlet hue."
    
    Garland
    -------
    "...don't you know what it means to meet your maker?"
    "To live is to give life meaning, yet
    one must take others' lives to survive..."
    
    Ramuh
    -----
    
    Beginning
    ---------
    Once upon a time, 33 small countries fought together against an empire. One day,
    a rebel troop visited a man named Joseph, who lived with his daughter. Owing a
    debt to the troop, he gladly accepted their plea for help. They headed for a
    cavern in the snow field.
    
    Cooperation
    -----------
    With Joseph's help, the troop defeated the adamantoise in the snow field cavern
    and acquired the Goddess Bell they needed to enter the empire's castle.
    
    Silence
    -------
    On their way home, they fell into a trap set by a traitor. Joseph gave his life
    to save the troop. The troop left without telling Joseph's daughter, Nelly,
    about the tradegy.
    
    Human
    -----
    Historian's explanation:
    The fact that they didn't report Joseph's death to his daughter was indicative
    of their guilt for failing to protect him. In the end, heroes are also human.
    
    Hero
    ----
    Historian's explanation:
    Although Joseph's death was not reported to his daughter, the manner of his
    death speaks for itself. This is the story of a true hero.
    
    Full Explanation
    ----------------
    Zidane: Heroic? Human?
            Those are just things people say after the fact.
    Zidane: Why try to give meaning to what the main character of the story
            chose?
      Vivi: ...I think the old man would've been her eidolon either way.
     Ramuh: Your exactly right...
     Ramuh: It's not what the people say afterward... What's important is being
            true to oneself.
    
    Ispen

    "Why did you come with me?"
    "Only because I wanted to go with you."

                                 7.11 -  Ragtime Mouse
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    When you go look for the Friendly Monsters, you might encounter the Ragtime
    Mouse. He will give you a random series of questions. If you get them right,
    you get money. If you answer all 16 questions he asks correctly, he will give
    you around 20,000 experience and a Protect Ring. Oh, by the way, Circle repre-
    sents true while X represents false. This is a switch from the game controll-
    ers, oddly. That's basically it. In my opinion, The best place to find him is
    at the forest closest to Dali. Walk around in the center there and you should
    encounter him.

                             7.13 -  Hippaul's Racing Game
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    In Alexandria, talk to Hippaul's mother. She will tell you that her son is not
    in shape, and needs someone to race. Agree to racing and she will start the
    race. Tap the two buttons as fast and accurate as you can to win the race. If
    you win by a long margin, you will advance 5 times. If you won by a short mar-
    gin, you will advance one time. This is a good way to get some pretty good
    cards in the game. After around 50 is gets really hard, however. I recommend
    that you take a break after every 20 or so times. I think the best way to do
    this might be a turbo button, or a macro that hits both of the buttons fast.
    Here is what you will win:
    
    10 Times: Wyerd Card
    20 Times: Carrion Worm Card
    30 Times: Tantarian Card
    40 Times: Armstrong Card
    50 Times: Ribbon Card
    60 Times: Nova Dragon Card
    70 Times: Genji Card
    80 Times: Athlete Queen Card

    In the Treno Equipment shop, you will have the option to fight the monster

    Disc Three -- Catoblepas -- 15,000 Gil
    Disc Three -- Amdusias   -- Running Shoes
    Disc Four  -- Behemoth   -- Circlet
    
    The two monsters in disc three can be fought when you go to Treno for the card
    tournament, and when you acquire the Hilda Garde III. All the monsters here are
    very easy and you should find no trouble beating them. Behemoth can be affected
    by the Mini status effect, making him very easy.

    Boss Name: Masked Man
    HP: 160
    Steal: Mage Masher, Wrist, Potion
    Party: Zidane (1), Cinna (1), Marcus (1), Blank (1)
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    This is one of the easiest boss fights in the game. The Masked Man only
    attacks for around 20 damage to one character. Sometimes he trips up when he
    is attacking and doesn't hit anyone for any damage at all! He tries to bounce
    around when hitting, and doesn't go after any one character. This is good,
    because no one (including the main character) should get even close to dying.
    Your part has a pretty basic role in this battle. Since he does such little
    damage, have everyone steal until you get all three items. There is no threat in
    this battle, besides Cinna getting knocked out, but we can live with that. After
    you get the items, start attacking him. You might notice that Zidane, Blank, and
    Marcus do around 40 damage each, so he should be history in just a couple hits.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: King Leo
    HP: 200
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane (1), Cinna (1), Marcus (1), Blank (1)
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    And you thought the first boss fight was easy! This fight is even easier! Steal
    is replaced with SFX, which is stage magic that doesn't do any damage. Don't use
    it unless you really want to see it. You don't need to take out King Leo's two
    henchmen; they are insignificant in this battle. Just hack away on King Leo's
    200 health, it should go down quiet fast. Don't worry if Cinna dies, that's the
    only character that they can hit for more then 10 damage. This fight should only
    last around 5 hits. King Leo and his two men often just use magic, so you might
    find yourself unscratched at the end of this duel.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Steiner I
    HP: 175
    Steal: Leather Hat, Silk Shirt
    Party: Zidane (1), Cinna (1), Blank (1)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Another (very) easy boss! He is almost as easy as Baku. His attacks do around
    the twenties in damage. He might focus on one character, but for the most part
    he attacks everyone evenly. Have all three of them steal from Steiner until you
    get the Silk Shirt and Leather Hat. They can be used a little further in the
    game, and sold after that. Once you have both of the items, hack away on
    Steiner. If Zidane's life gets low (20 HP left), have Cinna throw a potion his
    way to heal him. Blank and Cinna are not permanent characters, so we don't care
    as much about them. They both can die for all we care! After you have taken 175
    damage off of him, he will use Armor Break (you actually get to use this useless
    sword art later in the game) and breaks Blank's armor. Oglop's will fly out and
    on to the ground.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Boss Name: Steiner II
    HP: 160
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane (1), Vivi (1), Garnet (1), Marcus (1)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    This is another very easy boss fight. This time Steiner has a little less HP,
    but he has two of his Knights with him. Take the Knights out first. They have
    around 50 HP, so they should be one hit kills for Zidane, since he should be
    doing around 80 damage now. (With the Mage Masher, of course.) Marcus, on the
    other hand, might need Garnet to give the other Knight a "love tap" to finish
    him off. After that, have Vivi cast fire on Steiner. This will severely weaken
    him, as Vivi does around 100 damage. Then have Zidane, or Marcus, or whoever you
    can first finish off Steiner.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Steiner III
    HP: N/A
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane (1), Vivi (1), Garnet (1), Marcus (1)
    Difficulty: N/A
    
    You might be wondering "Why doesn't Steiner have any HP?" Simple answer: In this
    boss fight, all you have to do is survive three turns of the bomb growing. After
    that the fight will end. Everyone will tell Steiner that there is a bomb right
    behind him, but Steiner just thinks it's a trick. He's very right, that is
    something that Zidane would do. (You'll see later in the game...) Just have
    everyone do physical attacks on Steiner. You can't steal because SFX is still
    there (Why!?) and there is no point in doing fancy magic or anything. After it
    grows three times, this "fight" is over.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Prison Cage
    HP: 500
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane (3), Steiner (1)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Prison Cage can be a rather annoying boss if you let him be. He absorbs HP from
    Garnet to heal himself. If he absorbs all of her HP then it's Game Over. So you
    have to keep Garnet alive throughout the entire fight. He also uses Right and
    Left Stem, but that damage is minimal on Zidane and Steiner. Now, you might
    notice that Zidane has Tranced. This is very good because he can use Free Energy
    on the Prison Cage for massive damage. So Zidane's role in this battle is to use
    Free Energy until he loses Trance. At that time, he will assume the role of
    hitting the Prison Cage and giving Garnet Potions when she has one third (1/3)
    life left. Steiner's role in this battle is to attack and throw potions to
    Garnet when needed. Once Zidane gets out of Trance, all Steiner needs to do is
    hack away. Use Potions and Phoenix Downs as needed, but Right and Left Stem are
    so pathetic you most likely won't even have to.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Prison Cage II
    HP: 500
    Steal: Broadsword, Leather Wrist
    Party: Zidane (3), Steiner (1)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Now he has Vivi in his cage! You might think this fight will be harder, because
    Zidane is not in Trance, but it isn't. Vivi uses Fire on the Prison Cage for
    around 75 damage per hit every turn. This more then makes up for not being in
    Trance. Have both Steiner and Zidane hack away with attacks. You also must
    remember, though, that the Prison Cage can kill Vivi and give you a Game Over!
    You have to keep him alive, just like Garnet. Throw potions with Zidane when
    needed. The reason not to have Steiner do it is because Steiner does more damage
    then Zidane.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Baku
    HP: 200
    Steal: Iron Sword, Hi-Potion
    Party: Zidane (3)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Baku is almost as easy as Steiner, and that's saying a lot! His attacks do
    around 25 damage on Zidane. This is next to nothing. On top of that, he trips up
    sometimes and doesn't do any damage on Zidane! You want to start off by stealing
    until you get both the Iron Sword and Hi-Potion. The Iron Sword is better then
    the Broadsword Steiner has equipped and the Hi-Potion can be sold or used when
    you get to higher levels. Overall, both items are more then worth a little
    punishment with Baku. After you get both items, hack away with Zidane. He only
    has 200 HP, so it won't take very long.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Plant Brain
    HP: 900
    Steal: Iron Helm, Eye Drops
    Party: Zidane (4), Steiner (3), Vivi (3), Blank (3)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    The Plant Brain is a pretty easy boss battle if you use your skills correctly.
    All his HP makes him seem like he will be very hard, but he isn't because of
    that. He is because he is the first enemy you will fight that does "party"
    damage. His Thunder will attack everyone. His physical attacks aren't too
    shabby, either. However, Plant Brain has a weakness to fire. Vivi can cast Fire
    and Steiner can do his Fire Sword for massive damage. You will get around 400
    damage with Steiner, and 120 damage with Vivi. So why even give it a Semi-
    medium? The reason for this is because you will want to steal the Iron Helm from
    him, so you might have to survive a lot of attacks. Blank will come in after a
    lot of his HP is gone and help out. From here, Plant Brain is almost dead. Have
    both Zidane and Blank steal if you haven't gotten the Iron Helm already. If you
    have, or when you do, give Steiner and Vivi the green light to finish the Plant
    Brain off. A big note here is that Plant Brain will often put darkness on you.
    This blinds you when you attack. I would like to say that this is only when you
    attack him PHYSICALLY, not MAGICALLY. Magic is not affected by darkness. So,
    have Steiner and Vivi weaken the Plant Brain for Blank to come. Then Blank and
    Zidane steal until they get the Iron Helm, while Steiner and Vivi defend (press
    left) or heal. After that, have Vivi or Steiner finish him off. Pretty easy,
    huh?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Black Waltz #1 & Sealion
    HP: 250 (Black Waltz #1), 500 (Sealion)
    Steal: Silk Shirt, (Black Waltz #1), Ether, Mythril Dagger (Sealion)
    Party: Zidane (7)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    At first, this seems like a hell of a battle, because you are only controlling
    Zidane, but it really isn't. Zidane will trance in this battle; his gauge goes
    bonkers when he gets hit by an attack. When he does, this battle will be easy.
    But first, let me explain the enemy. Black Waltz #1 heals the Sealion with his
    Blizzard spell when you try to attack it. He also fires Blizzard at you for
    around 75 damage. The Sealion uses Tsunami, which does around 75 damage also.
    This may seem like too much, but it really isn't. When the battle starts, just
    have Zidane steal from the Sealion. The Ether and Mythril Dagger are very
    valuable to your party. Heal when you get low on health. When he trances, it is
    finally time to kill. If you haven't gotten the Mythril Dagger yet, then reset.
    Have Zidane use Free Energy on the SEALION. It will do around 350 damage. Now
    you might be asking "What? It will get healed with Blizzard!" Simple answer is
    that the Black Waltz will only be able to heal 150 HP back. This means that you
    make 200 HP in the process. And how much HP does the Sealion have? Just 500 HP.
    Three Free Energies and he is toast (or frozen). Black Waltz is really easy to
    defeat with him out of the picture. Just use regular attacks. Now, if you hadn't
    done that little trick and ended up killing Black Walts first, Sealion will go
    bonkers and do crazy attacks on you. So, the only real easy way to make this
    battle cake is to take out Sealion first.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Black Waltz #2
    HP: 1,000
    Steal: Leather Plate, Steepled Hat
    Party: Zidane (7), Vivi (7), Dagger (7), Steiner (7)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    The second Black Waltz is a lot more powerful then the first, but not as smart.
    He doesn't summon anything and make life miserable for you. All he does is
    attack. But boy does he attack! He does three spells, them obviously being Fire,
    Thunder, and Blizzard. After you take enough of his HP away they will turn into
    the 'ra forms, Fira, Thundara, and Blizzara. He also uses Osmoses to drain MP
    from someone at this time. The good thing about this fight is that, unlike the
    previous battle, you have a full party with you. He has some good stuff to
    steal, so have Zidane steal until he has at least the Leather Plate. Then he can
    start hacking away. Steiner should use Fire Sword until the Black Waltz says
    uncle, or until he runs out of MP. At which case, he should just hack away with
    Zidane. Dagger will take the role of a healer, since she is suppose to be a
    healer, and has Cure. Use Cure as needed. Lastly, Vivi needs to attack and heal.
    But DO NOT use magic on him. Why? If he does, the Black Waltz will counterattack
    with the same magic on the entire party. This is very bad and not worth it. So,
    Vivi is a healer and attacker. With Zidane and Steiner hacking away, and Dagger
    Curing, this battle should be pretty easy.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Black Waltz #3
    HP: 1,150
    Steal: Linen Cuirass, Silver Gloves, Steepled Hat
    Party: Zidane (7), Vivi (7), Steiner (7)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    There's only three, so there won't be another one of these things. The last one
    is always the most powerful. Doesn't matter much, as Vivi will trance. Now he
    has double black magic, he will throw out two spells in one turn! Oh right, back
    to the boss. This Black Waltz uses Fira, Blizzara, and Thundara at while, unlike
    the other two. He also does physical attacks sometimes. Overall though, they do
    around 100-150 damage each. Back to the fighters. You will see that the Black
    Waltz has some pretty good stuff to steal. Have Zidane stick to stealing and
    healing (as needed). Steiner should use Fire Sword, not Blizzard Sword, as the
    first does more damage to him. Vivi should stick with Fire all the way. Steiner
    will do around 280 damage and Vivi should do around 115 damage. Add up those
    numbers to the total, and you will see that he should be toast in no time. I got
    both the Linen Cuirass and Silver Gloves, but that was just a combination of
    luck and my bandit skill, the latter being less useful.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Gizamaluke
    HP: 3,200
    Steal: Ice Staff, Magus Hat, Elixir
    Party: Zidane (11), Vivi (11), Freya (11), Quina (11)
    Difficulty: Hard
    
    This is the hardest boss fight on disc one! Gizamaluke has three deadly attacks.
    Crash, which does around 100 damage to one character. Water, which will hit
    Freya and Zidane in the area of 100 damage. It will hit Vivi and Quina for
    around 200 damage! When he gets low on HP he will use water on the whole party
    for the same damage! Like I said, he's tough. He also has Silent Voice, which
    will make a character unable to use magic! Okay, now onto the fight. I really
    hope that you did what I said and got The Ogre, or this is going to be a lot
    tougher. If you did, which you should have done, have Zidane use Soul Blade on
    the beast and he will be blind him. Now when he uses crash he will miss a
    majority of the time! Now that we got one attack out of the way, let's get the
    others. Have Vivi use Slow on Gizamaluke. If it doesn't stick the first time, do
    it a couple times and it will. Now he attacks a lot slower! Okay, now onto
    Freya. Freya should use Lancer on Gizamaluke until she runs out of MP, or until
    he silences her. At which case, you will want to her to jump. Lastly, we have a
    small role for Quina. If you stole the Needle Fork, then it has a chance to do a
    lot of damage (around 600). Physically attack with Quina, and when Quina's HP
    gets low have s/he use Pumpkin Head for a couple hundred damage! Vivi should use
    Thunder on Gizamaluke until he silences him. This should happen after he first
    time he does it. Then his role will be to heal everyone with potions. Back to
    Zidane, after he casts Soul Blade on Gizamaluke he can either steal the Ice
    Staff (which you will get a little further), an Elixir (which are valuable), or
    he can attack him. Now we have to talk about the damage YOU will do to
    Gizamaluke. He will be blinded and slow, so he will go a lot slower in his
    attacks and he will use crash (stupidly) occasionally and miss. You will do
    around 275 damage with Freya's Lancer every turn and the same amount of damage
    with her Jump every other turn. Zidane will do around 400, but he might not even
    get a chance if he is stealing. Quina is pretty random; her needle fork will do
    anywhere from 120 to 600 damage. Vivi will only do 120 damage on Gizamaluke with
    Thunder before he gets silenced, but we will need him to heal anyway. Overall,
    this is one tough boss fight!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Beatrix
    HP: 3,000
    Steal: Mythril Sword, Chain Plate, Phoenix Down
    Party: Zidane (12), Vivi (12), Freya (12), Quina (12)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    We finally get to fight the best swordsman in the land! Yay! Beatrix is a lot
    easier then this, however. She's actually pretty easy. She uses four attacks in
    this fight. Shock, which will do around 750 damage to one character. This attack
    will kill any character in your party unless you are at a high level. Thunder
    Slash, which is magic and does about damage. Her regular attack, which does the
    same as Thunder Slash. And last, but definitely not least, Stock Break. She will
    only use this at the end of the fight, and everyone's HP will go to 1. It's sort
    of ironic, though, how everyone's HP will go to 1 but in actuality Quina can use
    Limit Glove for 9999 damage. Weird. Anyway, this battle is pretty tough if you
    let it be. Sometimes Beatrix abuses Shock and overuses it. I had to use around
    four phoenix downs in this fight because she would keep using it! Since she
    doesn't really have anything good to steal, I don't advise it. You should have
    Zidane attack all the way. He should take off around 400 HP every hit. Vivi's
    job is to cast Slow on Beatrix. This will make her attack a lot less often, and
    it usually sticks on the first try. Then have him cast Thundara until the cows
    come home. It should do around 500 damage every time! Freya should be using
    Lancer until she runs out of MP, and then Jump. This should do around 300
    damage. She also should take the role as a healer if Beatrix tries to abuse
    Shock. Lastly, Quina should be a full time healer. S/he should be throwing
    Phoenix Downs, Potions, Hi-Potions, whatever. Throw in some attacks and Pumpkin
    Head if Quina's HP gets low. This fight really shouldn't last that long unless
    Beatrix keeps taking out Zidane and Vivi and you have to throw Phoenix Downs a
    lot. You do not have to take off all of Beatrix's HP, all you have to do is last
    around 7-10 turns. She will use Stock Break after that, and bring everyone's HP
    to 1.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Black Waltz #3 II
    HP: 1,250
    Steal: Flame Staff, Lightning Staff, Steepled Hat
    Party: Dagger (7), Steiner (7), Marcus (7)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Hey hey... don't blame me. I didn't know that this demon was going to survive
    the explosion and magically end up here! Anyway, this fight is really easy. The
    Black Waltz is persistent, but this time you cannot lose. Trust me, I tried. The
    first time I fought him I had Marcus kill Steiner and then had Dagger beat up on
    Marcus. Then, when Dagger is left, the Black Waltz will crack his back every
    turn for 250 damage on him. Basically, you cannot lose. I then booted up the
    last save and tried this fight over. This time I actually fought. Steiner and
    Marcus should physically attack. Since Vivi's not in the party, Steiner can't do
    Fire Sword. Marcus is a lot worse of a stealer then Zidane, so don't have him
    steal. You can get those items at Treno, anyway. Have Dagger heal with Cure and
    this fight should be easy. The Black Waltz has the same attacks as the time
    before, but he also has Freeze. This will stop a character. Pathetically, most
    of the time he uses Fire on the character afterwards and unfreezes them. His
    attacks do little damage, and with Dagger healing, you shouldn't have a problem.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Ralvurahva
    HP: 2500
    Steal: Mythril Fork, Bone Wrist
    Party: Dagger (14), Steiner (14), Marcus (10)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    This battle can be pretty tough if Ralvurahva makes it be. He usually is a
    pansy, though. He has a handful of attacks. The most deadly of these is Mini, it
    will turn a character into that status. This is far by the worst status in the
    game, it makes a character completely useless. They will do A LOT less damage.
    He only does this sometimes, though. He has an attack called String, which will
    put a character with the Slow ability. This isn't anywhere near as bad as Mini,
    but he uses String a lot. He also has an attack called Devil's Kiss, which will
    rarely inflict poison on you. And then he has what he attacks with the most;
    Blizzara. You will be happy when he casts this, it only does around 100 damage!
    You will want Steiner to attack, and he will heal himself with the Blood Sword.
    Marcus should stick to attacking, stealing is way too rare with him. Dagger
    should heal Marcus and herself if need be. Ralvurahva is guarded verse silence
    so don't even try it! You should be doing around 500 damage with Steiner and 300
    damage with Marcus. Dagger should only do around 50, but it will be her job to
    heal. Overall this battle gets a medium, it can be painful if he abuses Slow and
    Mini.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Antlion
    HP: 4000
    Steal: Gold Helm, Mythril Vest
    Party: Zidane (15), Vivi (15), Freya (15), Quina (15)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    This boss fight isn't very tough. The Antlion has three attacks. The first one,
    which we should all be familiar with, is called Fira. This will do around 200
    damage on one person. It's not to bad, it can be healed. Then we have Counter
    Horn, which is Antlion's counterattack. He will use this often, but it normally
    misses. In my fight it missed 5 times. It's not a reliable counterattack. When
    it does hit, though, it does around 200 damage. The last attack that Antlion
    uses is one that you should be doesn't abuse. He rarely uses Sandstorm. This is
    an attack that hits everyone's HP to the critical stage. This is the yellow
    stage in HP, it will bring everyone's HP down to around 50-70. This attack is
    similar to Beatrix's Shock Break, but you can fight back this time. When Antlion
    uses this, you should quickly counter with Quina's White Wind. This will restore
    200 HP to everyone in the party and give you time to heal more. He shouldn't
    abuse Sandstorm, I only saw it once in the whole fight. I say "Whole Fight" as
    if the fight was long. This was a very short fight. Zidane should be physically
    attacking and not stealing. You can get most of those items a little later in
    the game. Vivi, who will be your god of the fight, should abuse the usage of
    Blizzara. Since Antlion uses Fira, we know that he's weak to Blizzara! This
    should do a huge 1000 damage to Antlion. Now you know why this fight doesn't
    last very long. Freya should use Lancer like theirs no tomorrow. This should do
    around 300 damage. Also, when Antlion uses Sandstorm, have Freya use Reis' Wind.
    This will restore everyone's HP 1/16 every turn. It is extremely good when
    Antlion uses Sandstorm, as it almost completely counters it. Lastly, Quina
    should be the healer of the fight. Quina's job should be throwing both Potions
    and Hi-Potions as needed. If Quina has any free turns to attack, please do so.
    The Needle Fork is a gamble, sometimes it will do 200 damage and sometimes 600
    damage. Obviously, when Antlion uses Sandstorm have Quina use White Wind. If,
    however, you have kept track of how much damage you have inflicted on Antlion
    throughout the fight, and see how much HP Quina has and s/he's maximum, you can
    finish Antlion off with Pumpkin Head. Remember that Pumpkin Head does your
    maximum HP minus the HP you have currently, always. When you get down to
    critical stage, this might be the end of the fight!

    Boss Name: Beatrix II
    HP: 5,000
    Steal: Ice Brand, Thunder Gloves
    Party: Zidane (16), Vivi (16), Freya (16), Quina (16)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Beatrix is back. The same outcome will occur, just as last time. It all ends
    with a Stock Break, which brings everyone's HP down to 1. Anyway, you don't have
    to take all 5,000 HP off, just wait until she uses Stock Break on you. Beatrix
    has a couple attacks, but it's all the same stuff from last time. Shock on a
    character will do around 800 damage. She might choose to abuse this, and in the
    battle I fought she used it 3 times. That means three deaths. Shock is far by
    her worst attack. She uses Thunder Slash again, for around 450 damage. This
    attack isn't that bad, at least compared to Shock. Of course, she also has her
    regular physical attacks. You will be praying for these, as they do around 200-
    300 damage. Oh, and it seems that the developers decided to give Beatrix Cure in
    this battle. It will cure her 750 damage, but she doesn't use it much. Now, onto
    are characters. Zidane should be attacking, as usual. Beatrix doesn't have
    anything really good to steal, you can get most of it now or a little later in
    the game. Vivi should be casting Thundara, or any other 'ra spell he has. The
    order of how much damage they will do on Beatrix is: Thundara, Blizzara, and
    Fira. So if you have one or two, or all three, just spam Thundara. Freya should
    be using Lancer like she always does. This should continue to do around 500
    damage. When she runs out of MP, have her Jump and heal. Quina is going to be
    the healer if this fight. S/he should be throwing Phoenix Downs and Potions
    right and left. Have Quina use White Wind if things get ugly on all the
    characters. Rather then that, just wait until Beatrix uses Stock Break.

    Boss Name: Tantarian (Disc 2)
    HP: 20000
    Steal: Silver Fork, Demon's Mail, Elixir, Ether
    Party: Zidane (16), Vivi (16), Freya (16), Steiner (20)
    Difficulty: Very Hard
    
    Please read this whole strategy before fighting! You can fight the Tantarian at
    Disc Two and Three. This strategy will cover disc two. Before we start, I would
    like to say that fighting him in disc two is a MAJOR MISTAKE UNLESS YOU HAVE THE
    PROPER EQUIPMENT. You should at least have Bio with Vivi, and everyone has to
    have Auto-Potion. If you don't have Bio, then substitute one of the 'ra's for
    it. Why do you need Auto-Potion? When Tantarian attacks, he usually does Paper
    Storm. This is a horrible attack that will do around 500 damage to everyone in
    the party! So if you wanted to heal you would have to blow all your turns. So,
    Auto-Potion is a must for this fight. He also has Edge. This is a good attack
    because it will only hit one character for 800 damage. If Steiner gets hit with
    this then use Minus Strike on him for great damage. Okay, now before we continue
    Tantarian has two forms: Book Form and Cute Form. In Book Form he wreaks havoc
    on the party with all of his attacks. He also wastes turns looking for his cute
    form. He will keep going to pages until he finds it. You have to inflict a lot
    of HP off of him before he finds cute form. You will do little damage to him in
    this form, so just keep attacking him. When he changes to cute form, DO NOT
    PHYSICALLY ATTACK HIM! He will close his book and go back to Book Form again!
    However, you can attack him with magic. Have Vivi use his best spell and Steiner
    use Magic Sword. Freya should use Lancer and Zidane should steal and heal the
    party. This is at Cute Form, however. At Book Form, have everyone hack away with
    Magic and Physical attacks to get him to book form. Zidane should attack and
    steal. Vivi should use his best magic. Steiner should use Magic Sword/Attack.
    Lastly, Freya should heal and attack. Don't worry if you run low on magic, just
    use ethers. This battle should take a very long time, so try to get here as fast
    as possible for your time limit. I hope that you have a lot of Hi-Potions,
    Potions, and Phoenix Downs, or you will fall. Chemist on Freya is also needed so
    she can be a better healer.

    Boss Name: Zorn
    HP: 5000
    Steal: Stardust Rod, Partisan
    Party: Zidane (17), Vivi (17), Freya (17), Steiner (20)
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    Boss Name: Thorn
    HP: 3000
    Steal: Mythril Armor
    Party: Zidane (17), Vivi (17), Freya (17), Steiner (20)
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    At first, all the HP both of them have might discourage you. Don't, this battle
    is pretty easy. You must be glad you finally get to fight your comic relief.
    Anyway, neither Zorn nor Thorn attacks regularly. They have to give power to
    each other. In the next turn, they will unleash this power upon you. It can be
    pretty devastating if you let it be. However, if you have someone attack one of
    them, and the other three attack the other, their power is neutralized! This
    means no attacks on you! You will only need to kill one of them before they give
    up. So, focus your power on Thorn, because he has less HP. Then have one other
    character hit Zorn so he doesn't use any attacks. Have Zidane, Vivi, and Steiner
    attack Thorn and Freya attack Zorn. This will make it so neither of them can use
    their powers. Okay, let's start out with Freya. Freya will attack Zorn
    physically to neutralize his power. That's it. Don't have her jump or use
    Lancer. Her job is to neutralize his power. Got it? Good. Okay, now onto Thorn.
    Have Zidane attack, Vivi use Thundara, and Steiner use Thundara Sword. This
    fight won't last long. Zidane will do around 600 damage, Vivi will do 700
    damage, and Steiner will do 1700 damage! This is a pathetically easy fight! Zorn
    and Thorn will jump to the back row, and this fight will be over.

    Boss Name: Beatrix III
    HP: 6000
    Steal: Ice Brand, Survival Vest
    Party: Zidane (17), Vivi (17), Freya (17), Steiner (20)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Beatrix again. Sigh. This is getting boring. She has the same old moves as last
    time. Shock is not the all end attack anymore, however. It should only do around
    500 damage. That's more then curable. Thunder Slash is almost pathetic now, it
    does a mere 250 damage. They replaced Stock Break with Climhazzard, it's the
    same move but it looks cooler. You might notice that Beatrix is a lot easier in
    this fight. Her attacks do a lot less and she doesn't abuse Shock. Zidane should
    stick to attacking because she has nothing worth stealing. The Ice Brand isn't
    all that exciting and the Survival Vest is old. He should do around 500 damage
    per hit. Vivi should use Thundara exclusively, it will do the most out of the
    three 'ra's. This will do around 700 damage. Steiner, who will be your valiant
    knight, should use Thundara Sword. This will do around 1,500 damage. Freya is
    the healer as always. You should have Auto-Potion by now on all characters,
    however. If Freya isn't healing, she should do her usual Lancer move. This will
    do around 500 damage. As you can see, the party has grown a lot stronger, but
    Beatrix hasn't. This makes this fight pretty boring. She might use Cure; but it
    is a useless move. She will only cure herself 800 damage, while the party will
    be taking around 3,000 damage off of her per group turn. If the game had not
    ended it with Climhazzard, you would have been able to defeat her.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Ralvuimago
    HP: 3500
    Steal: Oak Staff, Adaman Vest
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    Party: Zidane (17), Vivi (17), Dagger (14)
    
    This battle is ridiculously easy. Ralvuimago is not the other snake you
    encountered, he is a little stronger and has better attacks. When you attack him
    physically, he will become compact. This will give him huge defense. Your
    attacks will be like you have the mini status effect. If you attack him
    physically while he is compact, he will use a move called Power of the Land. It
    does a lot of damage to everyone, including himself. However, it is earth type
    damage, so it will heal him. Don't attack him while he is compact! Ralvuimago
    has a move called Ultra Sound Wave. These will mini a character, and render them
    useless. You cannot cure this status effect yet, so it's time to fret. He has
    Thundara, which will do around 150 damage to each party member. Lastly,
    Ralvuimago has Stab, his physical attack. This will only do around 200 damage to
    one character, so it's no big deal. Okay, so why give this guy a Very Easy, you
    might be asking? Well, I just stumbled over something to abuse in this fight.
    Ralvuimago has to use a turn to become compact, and he can't attack unless you
    hit him while he is compact. So what is there to abuse? Well, what I did was
    have Zidane attack physically. He would become compact and waste a turn. Then I
    had everyone defend, and he uncompacted. After that, I had Zidane hit him
    physically again and he became compacted again. You see where I am going here?
    He can't touch you if he has to waste a move to compact and uncompact, so this
    battle can even be done slowly with Zidane attacking like that. However, most of
    you don't want to do that because it would be a yawnathon. So, have Vivi cast
    Slow and Dagger cast Blind on the snake. This makes him go a lot slower and his
    physical attacks will miss often. Now, have Vivi spam Thundara until the cows
    come home. This will do around 750 damage each time. Dagger can be the healer
    with Cura. Lastly, Zidane can steal the stuff he has and heal. If Ralvuimago
    uses Ultra Power Wave on Vivi, then use the above tactic with Zidane. It might
    take a little while, but you will have no chance of losing.

    Boss Name: Lani
    HP: 6000
    Steal: Coral Sword, Gladius, Ether
    Party: Zidane (18), Vivi (18), Dagger (18), Quina (18)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Lani really isn't that hard of a boss. The simple reason why I give her a medium
    is because of her arsenal of attacks. She has every single one of the 'ra
    spells, which will do around 300 damage to one character. She sometimes wastes a
    turn to scan someone to find his or her weakness, and then uses the appropriate
    spell. That's a big waste of two turns, in my opinion. You also might find her
    use Aera if the character's weakness is Wind. No big deal there either. Her big
    attack in this fight is Water. Water is pretty devastating. It does 300 damage
    to every character. That's really bad. However, she doesn't abuse this power.
    You might see her use it once or twice in the fight, but that's it. Oh, and she
    has physical attacks, but they are just like a spell. I want you to watch out
    for Dagger and Vivi. They have low health, so 300 damage here and 300 damage
    there and they are goners. If you are the recommended level, then you should
    have around 550 HP with Dagger and 650 HP with Vivi. These two characters are
    key to this battle, so keep them in tip top shape, capiche? Anyway, onto
    character duties. Zidane should be physically attacking Lani, he should be doing
    around 1000 damage each hit. Vivi's job is to cast any of the 'ra spells or Bio.
    All the 'ra spells will do the same damage, Lani is a pretty steady character in
    the weaknesses department. Dagger should cast Blind on Lani the first turn; this
    will make her physical attacks laughable. Afterwards, she should cure people
    with spells and medical items as needed. Abuse Cure, it is still a good
    restoration ability. Quina's role in this fight is to be on standby when Lani
    does Water. When she does, Quina should Counter with White Wind. This will make
    her Water attack pretty useless. Quina should stick to attacking and healing as
    needed. When I attacked with Quina I only did around 50 damage. I didn't know
    what gived, but throughout the entire fight Quina would only do 50 damage. So
    Quina can also heal. With Zidane and Vivi attacking, while Dagger and Quina are
    healing, there is almost no way you can lose. Lani gets a medium because even
    though she has some great attacks, your party is so medically strong that it
    wouldn't make a difference. She isn't like Beatrix; She doesn't have any 800
    damage attack that will completely kill you.

    Boss Name: Hilgigars
    HP: 8000
    Steal: Mythril Fork, Phoenix Down
    Party: Zidane (23), Dagger (23), Vivi (23), Eiko (23)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    This is a very easy fight if you are at the recommended levels. Hilgigars' is
    very easy because your party is a lot more advanced then him; Zidane will take
    on someone with 8000 HP ALONE just a little later in this game. Hilgigars' is
    lucky enough to have four attacks. First off, he has Knock Down. This is
    basically a physical attack; Hilgigars hits one person for around 400 damage.
    Dagger or Eiko can easily heal this will Cura, and you should have Auto-Potion
    equipped. So, this can be completely countered with healing. Second off, he has
    Hishop. This is an attack where he jumps up in the air and falls on someone. It
    might sound painful, but it only does around 400 damage, also. Again, it can be
    easily countered with Dagger/Eiko or Auto-Potion. Third off, he has Earthquake.
    This is the most powerful attack he has. It will do around 300 damage to all
    party members. Luckily, everyone should have Auto-Potion equipped, so it will
    effectively be countered on its own. Heal whoever gets hit by a single attack on
    the following turn. Finally, he has Curaga. This may not seem like an attack,
    but Hilgigars' does have a tendency of abusing Curage. It heals 2250 damage,
    which is really good. It's 1/4 of his HP. He wastes a turn to use this, so you
    should inflict just as much or more damage with his wasted turn. Okay, let's go
    to character duties. Zidane should not be a thief here, so don't have him steal.
    Neither are worth it, you can buy both at your local store. So, he should be
    attacking. He should be doing around 1200 damage each hit. This is pretty good.
    Next, we have young Vivi. His role is to cast Bio repeatedly. This should do
    around 1400 damage each time. Hilgigars' has pretty low HP for your level. If
    you weren't anywhere near the recommended level, then I would suggest you have
    Vivi cast Slow first. Dagger should heal as necessary (see above) and use Ramuh.
    Again, if you are at a lot lower level you can have her cast Silence. This will
    make this battle really easy, as it takes away Earthquake from Hilgigars. Please
    note that you cannot blind him, he has a guard to that. Eiko should be right
    next to Dagger in this battle. I mean this in more ways then one. Eiko should
    heal with Dagger, and use Fenrir. Also have her Silence if you want to. This
    battle is very easy; Even if you are at an extremely low level you can win. It's
    just so... easy.

    Boss Name: Soulcage
    HP: 10000 // 1
    Steal: Brigandine, Oak Staff
    Party: Zidane (26), Vivi (26), Dagger (25), Eiko (25)
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    This is the easiest boss fight in disc two by far. Soulcage has some pretty mean
    attacks, but he won't even get to use them! Why? Well, Soulcage is undead! This
    means that if you throw a Phoenix Down or cast Life on him, all he will need is
    one hit to die! This makes this fight EXTREMELY easy! Merely have someone throw
    a Phoenix Down, and the next character physically attack Soulcage. Even if you
    do 2 damage, Soulcage will fall! There is no need to steal any of his items; you
    can get them at the next shop. So, finish him off without any mercy!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Scarlet Hair
    HP: 9000
    Steal: Poison Knuckles, Ether
    Party: Zidane (26)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Despite what some people say, Scarlet Hair is an absolute PUSHOVER if you fight
    him correctly. See, Scarlet Hair is extremely fast and will move all over the
    place. When he moves, your attacks on him will be severely weakened. However, he
    can't attack you when he moves, either. So it's actually more beneficial for you
    because while he jumping around you can throw a Hi-Potion on yourself. When he
    says, "Here I go!" he will go in and attack you. This is your cue to attack him
    now. Take 2-3 hacks at him, then he will move around again. Do not attack him
    while he is moving because one, the damage will be weakened, and two, he will
    counterattack. I highly advise that you have Auto-Potion and Counter equipped,
    it will make this fight a lot easier. See, Scarlet Hair only moves and attacks,
    he does not do any throw, Flairs, heals, or anything. All he does is move and
    attack. You know that you can find a strategy when we have a one-minded opponent
    such as him. The big secret strategy is counterattack! This will counter nearly
    every time he attacks you, giving you twice as many attacks. Auto-Potion with
    Hi-Potions will make this battle pathetically easy, even if he hits you for a
    couple hundred damage you will just cure it back. Now, the first time I fought
    him I had the bright idea to use "The Ogre." Why? Well, with Soul Blade and The
    Ogre's Darkness status effect, I thought I could blind him and it would be even
    easier. This, however, will not work as he is guarded to darkness. So don't even
    try it. So, what's your plan of attack now that I have rambled on about him?
    Simple. When he moves around, heal/defend/wait. He wastes turns while he moves
    around, but since he is so fast his next turn will come momentarily. When he
    says, "Here I go!" he will go in and attack you. He should attack you 2-3 times
    before he moves around again. This is your attacking period, also. Just remember
    that, since both of you have counter, you should get some nasty counterattacks.
    Auto-Potion with Hi-Potion will make this fight insanely easy.

    Boss Name: Catoblepas (Treno Equipment Shop Monster -- Disc Three)
    HP: 4000
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane (28)
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    Reward: 15,000 Gil
    
    You will be fighting Catoblepas as a regular enemy soon in the game, so I think
    that you should be able to defeat him. The tough part is he has Devil's Kiss,
    which will freeze you every time. You have to equip the ability called Body Temp
    before the battle starts. If you don't, more then likely his first attack will
    be Devil's Kiss. Catoblepas doesn't have more then that, though. He has
    Thundara, which is a semi-deadly attack. It does around 500 damage to you. This
    is why I told you to equip Auto-Potion; you can quickly heal this in a matter of
    seconds. Catoblepas also has Earthquake. This is an earth-based attack that does
    around 300 damage each time. If you don't have Auto-Potion, buy a Feather Boot
    add on. This absorbs earth damage. Catoblepas uses Earthquake around 50% of the
    time so he will you! Absorb = Heal. Auto-Potion and Feather Boots make this
    fight pathetically easy. Catoblepas didn't stand a chance against me, besides
    Devil's Kiss. Just hack away with attacks on him, you should be doing around
    1,000 damage each time. This makes the battle pathetically easy as Catoblepas
    only has 4,000 HP. It's a very easy 15,000 Gil, if you ask me.

    Boss Name: Tantarian (Disc 3)
    HP: 20000
    Steal: Elixir, Silver Fork
    Party: Zidane (28), Vivi (28), Freya (18), Amarant (27)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Please read this whole strategy before fighting! You can fight the Tantarian at
    Disc Two and Three. This strategy will cover disc three. Fighting Tantarian in
    disc three is where you are supposed to fight him. I will cover all the aspects
    of him and this fight, but let us take a look at preparation first.
    
    Preparation:  * All characters must be at recommended levels.
    ------------  * Zidane must have stolen normally throughout the entire game.
                    This doesn't mean you went bonkers when stealing; it just means
                    you stole items occasionally. This is for Thievery.
                  * Everyone must have Auto-Potion equipped, and you must have a
                    strong supply of Hi-Potions.
                  * Amarant must be in the process of learning Chakra. If he isn't,
                    then equip the Cat's Claw.
                  * Vivi must have an Oak Staff to cast Bio. (Substitution: 'ra's)
                  * Everyone must have the best equipment they can get this far in
                    the game. This is so they survive attacks.
                  * Freya should know, or have her learn, the chemist ability.
    
    Overview:  Tantarian has two forms: Book Form and Cute Form. In Book Form,
    ---------  which is the form that you will start the battle with, Tantarian
               will almost be unmatched in all attacks. You will only do around 50
               damage to him per attack. It is almost like being Mini'd.
               Tantarian will use two attacks in this form: Edge and Paper Storm.
               You will be happy when he does Edge on you; it will do around 600
               damage to one character. When he does Paper Storm, however, it will
               do 400 damage to the whole party! This is why it is imperative that
               everyone knows Auto-Potion and you have 40-50 Hi-Potions in stock.
               This will effectively counter both attacks. Now, besides this, Tan-
               tarian will look for his cute form. He will waste turns sometimes
               and try to find Cute Form in his book. He won't find it until you
               have inflicted enough damage on him. When he turns to Cute Form, DO
               NOT PHYSICALLY ATTACK HIM! He will close his book and you will be
               back to Book Form. All you can do is use magic here. Tantarian will
               use Poison in this stage only. After you have inflicted enough
               damage on him again, he will return to Book Form. This is a pattern
               which you must go through a couple times before he is defeated.
    
    Attacks:  Book Form
    --------  ---------
               * Edge is a physical attack that he does normally in Book Form. It
                 will do around 600 damage to one character. This can easily be
                 countered with Auto-Potion or Freya healing.
               * Paper Storm is a magic attack that he does in Book Form. It will
                 do around 400 damage to every character. Auto-Potion can comple-
                 letely counter this attack. However, you will have to run out of
                 Hi-Potions some day...
               * This is not an attack, but he normally looks for Cute Form in
                 his book. This doesn't do any damage to you, and actually gives
                 you a turn to attack more often. Overall, you want to see this.
    
              Cute Form
              ---------
               * Poison is the only attack that he will use in Cute Form. It will
                 inflict damage and the Poison Status on a character. You will
                 need a character to throw an Antidote to counter this.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
     Zidane: Zidane is going to be the "star" of your fight. He is the all star
             in your team. With his Thievery Skill, he will be able to inflict
             around 750 damage on Tantarian EVEN WHEN HE IS IN BOOK FORM! This
             is absolutely amazing and a real lifesaver. The damage that is done
             with Thievery is calculated with this formula: Number of items
             stolen in game * Half of your current speed. This means that if you
             stole 50 times in the game and had 20 speed, you would do 500
             damage. The reason for this is because 50 * 20/2 = 500. Your
             Thievery skill will vary with your current statistics. This is why
             it is ABSOLUTELY VITAL that you stole normally in the game. Fifty
             times might seem like a lot, but it really isn't. You have gone
             through three discs, and you probably stole a lot in disc one.
             Your current speed should be around 24, so you will be inflicting a
             lot of damage on Tantarian. This is almost a bug in the game,
             because you should only be able to inflict around 50 damage on
             Tantarian every turn. With this, you will be able to do around 750
             damage every turn! When you run low on MP, have Amarant use the
             Chakra skill on you (See: Amarant's Duty). This is basically all
             Zidane is going to do in this fight.
    
    Amarant: Amarant should have the Chakra ability equipped. This will be used
             to heal Zidane's MP during this battle. Amarant's duty is to do
             this, and to heal the party. This is his main role. He also can phy-
             sically attack if he has an open turn. However, you might want to
             just put him on standby with triangle.
    
       Vivi: Vivi is to also heal. This is only in Book Form, however. In Cute
             Form, he is to use Bio until the cows come home. This will to a ton
             of damage on Tantarian. It makes the fight go by a lot quicker once
             Tantarian goes into Cute Form. Besides this, if Vivi has an open
             slot in Book Form, you can have him defend, or waste MP by using
             Magic on him.
    
      Freya: Freya is also a full time healer in this battle. However, when an
             open turn in Book Form arrives, you can have her use Jump or Lancer.
             In Cute Form, she is to abuse Lancer until her MP runs out. Then
             Amarant is to use Chakra to heal her MP right back up.

    Boss Name: Ark
    HP: 20000
    Steal: Power Vest, Holy Lance
    Party: Zidane (34), Steiner (34), Amarant (34), Quina (30)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 30. (I was at 34.)
    ------------  *  All characters must have the Clear Headed ability equipped.
                     This will make this fight a lot easier.
                  *  All characters must have the Auto-Potion ability equipped.
                  *  Zidane should have the Bandit and Mug abilities equipped.
                  *  You should have a healthy supply of Hi-Potions and Pinwheels
                     at hand in this fight.
    
    Overview:  People say Ark is the best, but he isn't. Sure, he is pretty tough
    ---------  if you are asleep, but if you aren't, this battle should be easy.
               Ark has around 20000 HP, and when you physically attack him you will
               do a lot less damage then you would do to a regular enemy. This
               might be because he is in the back row, or because he has high def-
               ense. I do not know. What I do know is that he is somewhat a push-
               over. Since you can't use magic, all magician characters are use-
               less. Well, let me tell Square this: We don't need no stinkin'
               magic! We will do fine with just physical attacks. The Ark doesn't
               have anything up his sleeves besides four attacks, and one will
               be completely useless. If you prepared right, this will be a fun
               and easy fight.
    
    Attacks:  *  Photon is his most powerful attack in this fight. It will bring
    --------     any characters HP to 1. This is a crucial attack. Even if you have
                 someone with 2500 HP or 500 HP it will always bring it down to 1.
                 The good thing is he doesn't tend to abuse this often. You might
                 find it 1-2 times in the whole battle. Auto-Potion and a healer
                 should almost make a opposite effect. Of course, this only hits
                 one character.
    
              *  Whirlwind is another deadly attack if you don't have everyone with
                 Auto-Potion and Hi-Potion. It will do around 350 damage to every-
                 one in the party. This can be devastating or easy. If you have
                 what I said, then it will be healed up before he can even attack
                 again. If not, you might find yourself kicking the TV.
    
              *  Boomerang might wreak havoc on a party member if you don't heal.
                 It will do in the vicinity of 450 damage to one character. This
                 can be bad if he does it on a weak character, or a character with-
                 out Auto-Potion. It also can be bad if he uses it after he uses
                 Photon. Overall, though, you will want to get hit by this attack
                 as a Hi-Potion will recover all the lost damage.
    
              *  Propeller Wind is probably one of the most annoying attacks in the
                 whole game. It inflicts the Confusion status upon all party
                 members. This is very bad. You will see your powerhouse characters
                 hitting and killing each other. It's sad to watch your party kill
                 each other. With all the power your team has, one hit should KO
                 one of your party members. This is why you have to have Clear
                 Headed equipped. It will put a Guard up against this and render
                 this attack useless. If everyone has Clear Headed, you will want
                 to see this attack. It doesn't do any damage, all it does is try
                 to inflict the confusion status. If you don't have Clear Headed,
                 this can be a potentially game destroying attack. Like I said, it
                 will make everyone attack each other. The only way to counter it
                 is if someone doesn't get hit with it and heals everyone. This
                 will take it's toll with all the turns wasted, though.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
     Zidane: As you might have noticed, Ark has some of the best items to steal in
             the entire game. Well, just one item. (Holy Lance.) This is a powerful
             lance for Freya that has +62 attack. That's not the only thing, how-
             ever, it also has Dragon Crest. Dragon Crest is a very powerful abili-
             ty for Freya that will make your life a lot easier. The only thing is
             you have a "next to none" chance of stealing it. Make sure you have
             Bandit and Mug on, so you have a better chance of getting it. You will
             also hit for some damage with Mug. It really is a hard item to get,
             but worth it. If you don't want to steal, then have Zidane stick to
             physically attacking. You will do less damage to the Ark then a
             regular enemy. If your Thievery skill does more damage then have him
             do that. Zidane is a pure attacker/stealer.
    
    Amarant: Amarant is the "star" and all-star of this battle. Even though his
             physical attacks might not do much damage, his throws sure will! Throw
             the Rising Sun you collected before the fight. You will be amazed by
             how much damage it will do. Then, stick to throwing Pinwheels or any
             powerful weapon that you might have more then two of. The better the
             power on the weapon, the more damage it will do when thrown. I would,
             however, just stick to Pinwheels as they are somewhat inexpensive and
             are what Amarant should really be throwing. If you run out of throwing
             items, then Amarant should be a pure attacker. If you have an extra
             turn with him and don't want to attack, use the Chakra flair. It will
             restore some of a party members HP and MP. An all-star, he is.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's brutal physical attacks are what is going to make this fight
             go by fast. Even though the Ark has some major defense, Steiner still
             pulls through in the clutch and does some major damage. You will find
             out that all of his Sword Arts suck, so do not bother to use them.
             Stick to attacking all the way. However, if he uses Photon on you, you
             might want to use the Darkside ability. This will restore all the HP
             you hit the Ark with. Darkside will make the Ark hitting Steiner a
             complete and utter joke.
    
      Quina: This is the last person you _should_ have in this battle. Quina is
             basically the healer of the battle. S/he is responsible for the
             healing of every character. Hi-Potions are a must, even though s/he
             doesn't have Chemist. I also advise that you give at least Quina Clear
             Headed, so s/he can heal everyone. If you find a open slot for Quina
             to attack, you will find out that you cannot use Blue Magic. (Even
             though you can use Flairs.) I would advise you would just pass Quina's
             turn and wait until someone gets some damage inflicted on them. If you
             do not want to wait, then just physically attack Ark.
    
      Freya: This is the last person you _should_ have in this battle. Freya is
             basically the healer of the battle. She is responsible for the healing
             of every character. Hi-Potions are a must, and she really should
             have Chemist. I also advise that you give at least Freya Clear Headed,
             so she can heal everyone. If you find a open slot for Freya to
             attack, you will find out that you cannot use Dragon Skills. (Even
             though you can use Flairs.) I would advise you would just pass Freya's
             turn and wait until someone gets some damage inflicted on them. If you
             do not want to wait, then just physically attack Ark. Do not, I
             repeat: Do not Jump in this battle. You will have to waste a turn with
             no healing. That bad.
    
       Vivi: All magician characters in this battle are very useless. They cannot
             use their powerful magic to destroy the Ark. It is highly unadvisable
             to bring them into battle. However, if you decide to, then they should
             stick to healing all the other party members. If you really wanted to
             bring a magician character then make sure they have the Chemist abil-
             ity so they do double the potency of magic.
    
     Dagger: All magician characters in this battle are very useless. They cannot
             use their powerful magic to destroy the Ark. It is highly unadvisable
             to bring them into battle. However, if you decide to, then they should
             stick to healing all the other party members. If you really wanted to
             bring a magician character then make sure they have the Chemist abil-
             ity so they do double the potency of magic. I recommend Dagger because
             she can learn/has the Chemist ability. However, she might screw up and
             not heal. So she isn't the best bet.
    
       Eiko: All magician characters in this battle are very useless. They cannot
             use their powerful magic to destroy the Ark. It is highly unadvisable
             to bring them into battle. However, if you decide to, then they should
             stick to healing all the other party members. If you really wanted to
             bring a magician character then make sure they have the Chemist abil-
             ity so they do double the potency of magic.

    Boss Name: Valia Pira
    HP: 12000
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Eiko (33), Vivi (33), Freya (30), Quina (33)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 30. (I was higher.)
    ------------  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions.
                  *  If any of your characters are all ability'd out, meaning they
                     don't have anything to learn, throw a Coral Ring on them.
                  *  Dagger must have Aquamarine equipped. (For Leviathan.)
                  *  Vivi must have the N-Kai Armlet equipped. (For Water.)
                  *  Eiko should have a Phoenix Pinion equipped. (For Phoenix.)
                  *  Dagger/Eiko should have Reflect.
                  *  If you, by accident, have Amarant in your party, get a healthy
                     supply of Rising Suns and Pinwheels.
    
    Overview:  This is one easy battle if you were smart and disabled all the Blood
    ---------  Stones like I did in this walkthrough. All his enhancements will be
               gone, meaning he will be a lot easier. Instead of having high stats
               he will have normal, easy stats. This makes the battle a lot easier,
               as instead of hitting him for 1000 damage you will hit him for 2500
               damage. In the beginning of the battle he will undoubtedly cast
               reflect on himself. This means that if you use Magic (not Skills or
               Eidolons) on him he will reflect them back to you. How do you stop
               this? Cast reflect on one of the party members. My Vivi had Auto-
               Reflect, so I didn't need to waste a turn to cast it. Now, when you
               want to attack him with magic, target the person that has reflect
               on. You think I might be crazy but I am not. It will reflect off of
               that person and hit Valia Pira. It will not reflect back! This is
               a small loophole in this fight. Now that you have a way to use
               magic, this battle should be pretty simple.
    
    Attacks:  *  Firaga is a element type damage that does around the same amount
    --------     of damage as the other two. It will hit you for around 750 damage,
                 so it's not a big deal. He abuses these attacks because it is all
                 he really has to fight with. If you have a Coral Ring or something
                 else that absorbs this type of damage, he will heal you. This is
                 absolutely great if you ever get low on HP. Also, Valia Pira is to
                 stupid to use magic on himself when fighting, so if he hits a re-
                 flected character it will go back to him. Some of these attacks he
                 is Guarded against, however.
    
              *  Blizzaga is a element type damage that does around the same amount
                 of damage as the other two. It will hit you for around 750 damage,
                 so it's not a big deal. He abuses these attacks because it is all
                 he really has to fight with. If you have a Coral Ring or something
                 else that absorbs this type of damage, he will heal you. This is
                 absolutely great if you ever get low on HP. Also, Valia Pira is to
                 stupid to use magic on himself when fighting, so if he hits a re-
                 flected character it will go back to him. Some of these attacks he
                 is Guarded against, however.
    
              *  Thundaga is a element type damage that does around the same amount
                 of damage as the other two. It will hit you for around 750 damage,
                 so it's not a big deal. He abuses these attacks because it is all
                 he really has to fight with. If you have a Coral Ring or something
                 else that absorbs this type of damage, he will heal you. This is
                 absolutely great if you ever get low on HP. Also, Valia Pira is to
                 stupid to use magic on himself when fighting, so if he hits a re-
                 flected character it will go back to him. Some of these attacks he
                 is Guarded against, however.
    
              *  Reflect is magic that will do no damage to you at first. He will
                 cast it on himself. Now, if you use magic on him it will bounce
                 back to you. This can be very bad if you let it be. Have someone
                 cast Reflect on one of your party members, then have them bounce
                 magic off of that party member to attack him.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
       Eiko: Eiko's main duty is what she does best; Healing. You should have Cure/
             Cura/Life currently, so use them prudently. (Wisely.) Her Cure spells
             heal A LOT of damage. Cure does around 600 while Cura does around
             1200. Try to use Cure on the small stuff and Cura if Valia Pira's at-
             tacks build up. If you lose some party members but Eiko is still
             standing, have her cast Phoenix. This will do Fire bases damage on
             Valia Pira but more importantly it will revive any fallen characters.
             Lastly, have Eiko use Reflect at the beginning of the battle on one
             character. If she has any free moves try to cast reflect on every
             person in your party. Then any attack that he throws at you will be
             thrown back!
    
       Vivi: Vivi has one of the most important roles in this party. He is the main
             attacker. After someone has Reflect up, have him cast Water on him.
             It will bounce off of them and hit Valia Pira. Water does major dam-
             age; Even more then the 'ra's. You will find out that Vivi can take
             a serious chunk of his HP away in one blow. Just remember not to
             use Magic on Valia Pira directly if he has Reflect up. If he runs out
             of MP don't hesitate to use a Ether. (You shouldn't.)
    
      Freya: Freya is really the wildcard of this battle; She has no real thing
             that she will stick to. She should be using Lancer until she runs out
             of MP. This should be after 6-7 turns of Lancer; he should be dead
             by then. Remember that Lancer is a skill, not magic, so you don't have
             to do the Reflect trick. When she runs out of MP, have her Jump like
             crazy. She is a good backup healer, also. Have her throw Hi-Potions
             with her Chemist ability for 900 damage healed!
    
     Dagger: Dagger's role in this fight is simple. Her main focus in the beginning
             is to actually cast Reflect on everyone in the party. Then, have her
             be summoning Leviathan. This will do major damage to Valia Pira! She
             should recast it until her MP runs out. Leviathan rarely misses so
             don't worry about that. Dagger is also a parttime healer when the
             party gets on E. Oh, and before we continue, let us address her con-
             centration failure. Sometimes, she will not attack because of the
             tragedies that have happened in her life. (Obviously.) So she really
             is not a dependable character at this point. If she doesn't attack it
             is really no big deal.
    
     Zidane: You cannot have Zidane in this fight, even if you wanted him to. He
             has to go to Oeilvert.
    
    Amarant: Amarant's role in this battle is similar to what it will be in any
             other boss fight you might have him in. This role is to throw Rising
             Suns and Pinwheels until the cows come home. You will be amazed by the
             damage that he will do with these. Even if you didn't get the Blood
             Stones it will do a lot of damage. If you are out of them, then have
             him attack physically.
    
    Steiner: You should of had Steiner go with you to Oeilvert! If you didn't, then
             I'll tell you his role. It's very simple. Attack. He does major damage
             every hit. If he gets low on HP have him use Darkside to restore his
             HP. All the damage he does to the enemy will absorb into his health
             and thus make him very healthy.
    
      Quina: You didn't really leave Quina... did you? If you did, then s/he will
             have to heal during this fight. You won't have 1,000 needles so s/he
             s/he won't have any real attack in this fight. All s/he will do is
             heal everyone. Attack with Quina if you have a free turn.

    Boss Name: Meltigemini
    HP: 25000
    Steal: Golden Hairpin, Demon's Mail, Vaccine
    Party: Zidane (40), Amarant (40), Steiner (40), Eiko (33)
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 37 with exception to
    ------------     Eiko, who should be at level 33. (I was at 40 because of the
                     mistakes I made in the previous areas. I had to fight a lot
                     of monsters.)
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying.
                  *  Amarant should have a healthy supply of Rising Suns on hand.
                     I want you to have at least 10.
                  *  Eiko should have a Phoenix Pinion equipped. (For Phoenix.)
                     (Because if things get bad you can revive fallen characters.)
                  *  Zidane should have Bandit and Mug equipped.
                  *  Have a healthy supply of Antidotes if you are not at the
                     recommended level.
                  *  Have a strong supply of Remedies even if you are 10 levels
                     past the recommended level. This is because of Venom Powder.
    
    Overview:  This fight can actually be pretty tough! Zorn and Thorn's single
    ---------  form is something not to be taken lightly. They do a lot of damage
               and look hideous doing it. When you begin, you will notice that Vivi
               has been replaced with Eiko. This is not good, since Vivi's attacks
               are a lot better then Eiko's. However, Eiko will keep your party
               in tip top shape with Cura so it's not a very bad tradeoff. In the
               beginning of the fight, Meltigemini tends to cast Venom on everyone.
               This is awful because it will take away around 200 damage every
               single turn. These turns include when you attack, he attacks, and
               Auto-Potion turns. So, you could find some of your characters dead
               just because of Auto-Potion! This is why you have to have a good
               supply of Antidotes. Eiko can cure this poison with them. If you
               have the recommended party then this fight will go by a lot easier
               because they should have tons of HP. Meltigemini was a medium boss
               for me, mainly because I was at a healthy level 40. I don't expect
               you to be here; It took me a lot of fights to scout the past couple
               of areas. This fight should go by fairly quickly if you have ten
               Rising Suns. However, if he abuses Venom Power you might find your-
               self restarting the game.
    
    Attacks:  *  Venom Powder is the toughest attack in his arsenal. It will do
    --------     around 500 damage to one character and inflict the Venom status
                 upon that character. This might not seem bad, the 500 damage, that
                 is, but it is more about the Venom status. See, Venom is a very
                 strong poison that will not only take down your HP and MP abusive-
                 ly but will also disallow the character to attack. This means that
                 you cannot control the character for the rest of the battle. This
                 completely sucks. He tends not to abuse this, but I saw it twice
                 in the battle. It is very, very, VERY bad to have Venom. It never
                 misses, either. Overall, this is Meltigemini's worst and most
                 powerful attack.
    
              *  Viral Smoke takes the second spot in Meltigemini's bag of tricks.
                 The reason why it takes the second spot is because it is a party
                 attack. It will hit the whole party for around 500 damage each.
                 This really is not that bad if you have Auto-Potion with Hi-
                 Potions but I know that most of you still probably don't. If you
                 do not, it can be bad because 500 damage is A LOT of damage for
                 Eiko to take. Also, it gives you a virus. This virus will allow
                 you not to get the 11 AP at the end of the fight. This is really
                 no big deal because you can get the AP some other less crucial
                 time. Lastly, he does this attack a lot.
    
              *  Bio takes the third spot and it is actually a pretty good spell.
                 It will do around 500 damage to one character and give them the
                 Poison status. This will tick away around 200 damage per turn.
                 By turn, I mean every time you take a turn and the enemy takes a
                 turn. This includes Auto-Potion time. So every time the party does
                 Auto-Potion from Viral Smoke it will take away 800 damage. That
                 is just awful so have someone throw a Antidote to heal this very
                 bad status effect. If you don't have any, then just have Eiko use
                 her turns to heal you.
    
              *  Wing is probably the worst attack in Multigemini's arsenal. It
                 doesn't inflict any status effects or anything, which is a major
                 plus. It also doesn't hit the party! You might be jumping up and
                 down now. I would also. It does around 600 damage to Dagger, Eiko,
                 or Quina and 500 damage to Zidane, Amarant, Freya, or Steiner.
                 This is the attack that you will want to see during battle. Even
                 if it hits Eiko, it is a lot worse then the other three attack he
                 has. It can easily be healed by Cura or Auto-Potion. The sad part
                 is that in my fight I only saw this attack twice.
    
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Zidane's not an all-star in this fight, just a stealing advocate. If
             you care to take a look at the items that Multigemini has, you will
             see that they are very good items. Demon's Mail is an advanced armor
             piece for Steiner/Freya. The Golden Hairpin is an advanced head armor
             piece for everyone except Steiner and Freya. The Golden Hairpin is
             extremely valuable because it has Auto-Regen. You will use Auto-Regen
             throughout the entire game so it is very good to learn it when you
             don't have that many abilities to learn. Whereas if you learn it
             before you fight the last battle, you will have 10-20 other abilities
             that you will need. Auto-Regen will keep you in a lot of battles, and
             is probably the best combo in the game when combined with Auto-Potion.
             I'm babbling way too much about Auto-Regen. Anyway, Zidane shouldn't
             have that hard of a time stealing all of the items Multigemini has to
             offer unless you don't have Bandit equipped. You very well should by
             now! You could of learned it at the beginning of the game and in the
             last equipment shop. It had a piece of equipment that had the Bandit
             ability. At any rate, after you are done stealing all the items stick
             to physically attacking the beast.
    
    Amarant: Amarant, yet again, is your all-star. He is turning into a full-time
             but not full-blown hero. Have him throw Rising Suns at Multigemini. It
             will do around 2500 damage each turn! This is pretty spectacular con-
             sidering his regular attacks do around 1000 damage. This is why I told
             you to get 10 Rising Suns; 10 will kill Multigemini's health. If you
             do not have any Rising Suns, use the Wind Edge you got. Afterwards,
             stick to physically attacking.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's role, as you all may know by now, is to attack. His attacks
             will do a lot of damage, around 2000 to be exact. As you can see, if
             you are anywhere near the projected level this fight really is not
             that hard. Since Steiner does not have Vivi in the party, he cannot
             use his highly acclaimed magic sword abilities. If Steiner gets low
             on HP have him use Darkside. As we all know, his health should be up
             and running again after he uses it.
    
       Eiko: Eiko, who you actually have to have in the party, is actually pretty
             good. You won't be able to use Madeen in this fight because you have
             not had a chance to equip it. This doesn't mean Phoenix or Fenrir
             won't do some damage. They will both do around 1000 damage. I highly
             advise that you have Phoenix. It is good to have this eidolon because
             it heals everyone in your party. Anyway, onto Eiko's fullblown duty.
             This duty is simple; Heal. Cura and Cure are always your best friends.
             Use Hi-Potions if you want to use your magic prudently. Eiko can also
             cast Reflect and Shell and whatnot on the party if you want to. Last,
             it is Eiko's job to throw a Antidote and Remedy at the people who
             have Venom/Poison. These are two very powerful attacks, so don't take
             Eiko's job lightly. You would probably want to have Eiko hold by
             pressing triangle until someone gets inflicted with these status eff-
             ects. Also, if you by-happen to chance have Mini keep trying to
             inflict it on Mutligemini until it sticks. This will make him
             laughable. However, I do not expect that you have it. You will not
             have had time to equip it beforehand. This is Eiko's role.
    
       Vivi: Vivi cannot be in this fight. He ran after Kuja.
    
     Dagger: Dagger's role is exactly the same as Eiko's. The only thing is that
             she loses concentration, so you might find yourself not getting healed
             and dying. This is why I strongly disprove of having Dagger at this
             time in the game. She is not reliable in the least. Also, Dagger can
             can Reflect to bounce back some of Multigemini's attacks. Multigemini
             has a weakness to Mini. This is extraordinary, considering that most
             bosses (especially good ones) have Guards towards all of the status
             effects. It is Dagger's job to put Mini on him.
    
      Freya: Freya... why did you choose her!? If you did, then have her use Lancer
             or any better skill until she runs out of MP. Then she can proceed to
             Jumping and healing. I advise that you have her be a healer, also,
             because your damage output won't be that great with Freya. She has to
             have Chemist by now so throw Hi-Potions right and left. Also, use
             Reis' Wind if things start to get sticky. This will cast Regen on the
             whole party.
    
      Quina: Quina is actually a pretty solid choice. S/he can use Earthquake,
             White Wind, 1,000 needles, and Mighty Guard. Earthquake is a pretty
             good attack against Multigemini, as it is strong Blue Magic. White
             Wind is good if you find yourself in a bad situation. It will recover
             the party's health by a lot. 1,000 needles is by far one of s/he's
             best attacks, as it will always do 1000 damage. This attack is com-
             pletely reliable, never misses, and doesn't cost much Blue Magic.
             Mighty Guard will lower his defenses, but it costs a lot of MP for
             what it is worth. Also, if you find Quina low on HP use Pumpkin Head
             for some quick, reliable damage. You didn't forget about it, did you?
             It does Quina's full HP minus Quina's current HP. Only use it if you
             are low on HP.

    Boss Name: Taharka
    HP: 30000
    Steal: Orichalcon, Elixir, Mythril Claws
    Party: Zidane (42), Vivi (42), Steiner (42), Eiko (35)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 40 with exception to
    ------------     Eiko, who should be at level 35. (I was at 42 because of the
                     mistakes I made in the previous areas. I had to fight a lot
                     of monsters.)
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying.
                  *  Vivi should have the Black Robe so he can use Flare.
                  *  Eiko should have a Phoenix Pinion equipped. (For Phoenix.)
                     (Because if things get bad you can revive fallen characters.)
                  *  Eiko should have a Ribbon equipped for Madeen.
                  *  Zidane should have Master Thief, Bandit, and Mug equipped.
                  *  You should have your weakest weapons equipped still.
                  *  Ice absorbing/defending equipment will make this fight sad.
                  *  Everyone should be equipped with their weakest weapons and
                     strongest armor/add-ons.
    
    Overview:  This is a pretty easy boss fight. Why? Taharka doesn't have any
    ---------  attacks in his arsenal that are very good. He doesn't have any good
               status effects that kill players, either. Your characters should be
               more advanced then he is, so it should be easy. Taharka's defenses
               to physical attacks are pretty high, almost like the Ark. You will
               still do a good amount of damage with physical attacks, however. He
               has a tendency to Curl up. When he does, physical attacks don't do
               much damage. It's like you are Mini'd. He usually uses Blizzaga, but
               it is really no big deal. Just third level magic. You might want
               to equip Ice absorbing/defending equipment before the battle.
               There's nothing quite like having him heal you every other turn. You
               also might want to consider equipping the Reflect ability. This will
               bounce Blizzaga back at him.
    
    Attacks:  *  Curl is not really an "attack," but yet it is the worst thing he
    --------     can do. See, Curl is like being Mini'd with physical damage. Your
                 attacks do around 40 damage. He might Curl for a couple turns, so
                 you can either defend, heal up, or fight when he does this. He
                 cannot attack you while he is Curled. He uses this from time to
                 time in battle, usually when you abuse his HP a little.
    
              *  Chop is his second best attack, and that's for one reason. What's
                 the reason? Well, even though Chop is physical damage, it will do
                 a lot of damage. He uses this rarely, however. It only hits one
                 person, also. If it hit the whole party this battle might be a
                 little tougher. All in all, Chop is a powerful attack but just not
                 quite at your level.
    
              *  Ram is a physical attack like Chop but it hits for less. This is
                 his weakest physical attack. It only hits one character for around
                 500 damage. He uses this every once in a while, but don't fret
                 if you don't even see it in the fight. Ram is a pretty pathetic
                 attack. Maybe if they made it so it would hit all the characters
                 it would be better. It is just nothing right now, though.
    
              *  Blizzaga is his only magic spell. It is third level magic, and it
                 does around 500 damage to one character. If you equipped Ice
                 absorb armor, it will give you 500 HP when he does this attack!
                 This is very good, because he uses this attack A LOT. If you get
                 50% reduction to ice armor then it will only do around 250 damage.
                 In my fight I had Reflect on two people in the party. Taharka
                 wanted to hit those two characters with Blizzaga throughout the
                 entire fight, and every single time it backfired on him!
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: I think we all know Zidane's role in this battle: Steal, Steal, and
             Steal! The Orichalcon is one of Zidane's best weapons in the entire
             game. It is worth while to get it now. This item has +71 power but
             sadly has the detect ability. It is definitely worth it to get this.
             It should be a lot easier with Master Thief, Bandit, and Mug. These
             three skills will make stealing it SO much easier. Zidane's sole
             purpose in this battle is to steal until you get it. An Elixir is also
             very good, and you will probably get that before you get the dagger.
             After you have both of those items, Zidane can stick too physically
             attacking Taharka. You might now be saying "What!?" and the reason
             for this is because even though he has high defenses, Zidane will
             still manage to do around 800 damage. When he uses Curl, have Zidane
             use his Thievery skill. This will do a lot of damage on him if you
             have stolen a lot throughout the game. Also use Thievery if it does
             more damage then your physical attacks after he uncurls.
    
       Vivi: Vivi is the all-star of this fight! Have him cast Flare repeatedly on
             Taharka. This will do around 5000 damage! Flare is truly a wonderful
             attack that will save you from a hard battle. It costs 40 MP for each
             usage, so you should be able to use it around 5 times. Flare is a
             truly wonderful attack in this fight. If you don't have Flare then use
             Firaga, or something else. It won't do as much damage but alas, it is
             a substitution! After Vivi runs out of magic, he can defend and what-
             not. Have him heal people up and things like that. Also, you might
             want to cast Slow on him to slow Taharka's attacks down.
    
    Steiner: I found that when my Steiner attacked he only did 40 damage. This was
             with Flare Sword! This might just be a fluke for me or something. If
             it is the case for you, then Steiner should stick to physically att-
             acking. Even though the enemy has high defense, Steiner will still
             manage around 1200 damage. He can be a part time healer, as well. And
             no, you should have your weakest weapons in this battle.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is a powerhouse in this battle. She can use Madeen for around
             3000 damage! This attack will vary; sometimes it will do 2000-4000
             damage. Madeen is a killer skill, but it has a killer MP cost. Use it
             wisely. Also, if you have Boost then please do it. It will make Madeen
             even stronger! Anyway, onto Eiko's fullblown duty. This duty is
             simple; Heal. Cura and Cure are always your best friends. Use Hi-
             Potions if you want to use your magic prudently. Eiko can also cast
             Reflect and Shell and whatnot on the party if you want to. Reflect is
             actually very good because it Reflects Taharka's Blizzaga and it
             hurts him instead of him absorbing it. This is pretty good considering
             that he uses Blizzaga a lot. Only use this on the characters that do
             not have Ice absorbing armor on.
    
    Amarant: Your all-star, Amarant, cannot be in this fight. He left.
    
     Dagger: Dagger has pretty much the same role as Eiko; Heal until your brain
             fries. Dagger has the same spells as Eiko to work with. Dagger might
             be a little more advanced then Eiko, but not in the skills department.
             Even though she has tons of eidolons, they don't compare to Madeen.
             The exception, however, is Leviathan. If you have 20 Aquamarines in
             your inventory then Leviathan will do a little more damage then Eiko's
             Madeen. This is why you might want to trade off Eiko for Dagger. How-
             ever, most people still need Ore's, so it can be bad. Also, Dagger has
             regained her concentration so she will be able to fight every turn
             thus making her pretty reliable.
    
      Freya: Freya... why did you choose her!? If you did, then have her use Lancer
             or any better skill until she runs out of MP. Then she can proceed to
             Jumping and healing. I advise that you have her be a healer, also,
             because your damage output won't be that great with Freya. She has to
             have Chemist by now so throw Hi-Potions right and left. Also, use
             Reis' Wind if things start to get sticky. This will cast Regen on the
             whole party.
    
      Quina: Quina is actually a pretty solid choice. S/he can use Earthquake,
             White Wind, 1,000 Needles, and Mighty Guard. Earthquake is a pretty
             good attack against Taharka, as it is strong Blue Magic. White
             Wind is good if you find yourself in a bad situation. It will recover
             the party's health by a lot. 1,000 needles is by far one of s/he's
             best attacks, as it will always do 1000 damage. This attack is com-
             pletely reliable, never misses, and doesn't cost much Blue Magic.
             Mighty Guard will lower his defenses, but it costs a lot of MP for
             what it is worth. Also, if you find Quina low on HP use Pumpkin Head
             for some quick, reliable damage. You didn't forget about it, did you?
             It does Quina's full HP minus Quina's current HP. Only use it if you
             are low on HP.

    Boss Name: Earth Guardian
    HP: 20000
    Steal: Rubber Suit, Avenger
    Party: Zidane (42), Quina (31)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  Zidane should be at around level 40 while Quina should be at
    ------------     at least level 30.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying. Also have Auto-Regen equipped!
                  *  Quina should have the Glutton's Robe.
                  *  Quina should have the White Wind, Pumpkin Head, and 1,000
                     needles Blue Magic.
                  *  Zidane should have Master Thief, Bandit, and Mug equipped.
                  *  Ice absorbing/defending equipment will make this fight sad.
                  *  Everyone should have Feather Boots equipped WITHOUT
                     the Auto-Float ability equipped! Feather Boots absorb earth
                     damage!
    
    Overview:  This guardian is actually pretty easy if you met all the prepara-
    ---------  tions. His 20000 HP might scare you because you only have two party
               members, but don't be. If you have Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen, like you
               should, then he can't even kill you if he tried. If you got the
               Feather Boots like I asked, then his Earth Shake will be absorbed
               and you will get HP! You obviously cannot lose in this fight! Earth
               Guardian has plenty of attacks, but they all can be healed with
               Auto-Potion, not to mention Auto-Regen with it. Overall, this fight
               should be pretty easy.
    
    Attacks:  *  Firaga is a element type damage that does around the same amount
    --------     of damage as the other two. It will hit you for around 800 damage,
                 so it's not a big deal. He abuses these attacks because it is all
                 he really has to fight with. If you have a Coral Ring or something
                 else that absorbs this type of damage, he will heal you. This is
                 absolutely great if you ever get low on HP. Also, Guardian is to
                 stupid to use magic on himself when fighting, so if he hits a re-
                 flected character it will go back to him. Some of these attacks he
                 is Guarded against, however.
    
              *  Blizzaga is an element type damage that does around the same amount
                 of damage as the other two. It will hit you for around 750 damage,
                 so it's not a big deal. He abuses these attacks because it is all
                 he really has to fight with. If you have a Coral Ring or something
                 else that absorbs this type of damage, he will heal you. This is
                 absolutely great if you ever get low on HP. Also, Guardian is to
                 stupid to use magic on himself when fighting, so if he hits a re-
                 flected character it will go back to him. Some of these attacks he
                 is Guarded against, however.
    
              *  Thundaga is a element type damage that does around the same amount
                 of damage as the other two. It will hit you for around 750 damage,
                 so it's not a big deal. He abuses these attacks because it is all
                 he really has to fight with. If you have a Coral Ring or something
                 else that absorbs this type of damage, he will heal you. This is
                 absolutely great if you ever get low on HP. Also, Guardian is to
                 stupid to use magic on himself when fighting, so if he hits a re-
                 flected character it will go back to him. Some of these attacks he
                 is Guarded against, however.
    
              *  Double Slash is his only physical attack. It will do around 700
                 damage to one of your characters. Overall it is a pretty weak
                 attack at your current level. It misses sometimes, but usually it
                 doesn't. It's sort of the same as his 'ga's but you don't have to
                 waste 15 seconds looking at the spell being cast.
    
              *  Earth Shake can be his most deadly or most friendly attack, de-
                 pending on how you equipped. I told you to get two Feather Boots
                 and NOT to equip Auto-Float. If you did that, then this will be
                 ultra friendly. See, Feather Boots absorb earth damage. Earth
                 shake is earth damage. So every so often when he uses it, it will
                 heal you right up! He uses it a lot, too. It's pretty stupid,
                 because he still uses it a lot even though it heals you. If you
                 equipped Auto-Float then it will miss you because you are in the
                 air. If you did not equip the Feather Boots then you are in for
                 a disaster. This does around 600 damage to each party member. It's
                 nothing Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen can't fix, however.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Do you see the Rubber Suit and Avenger to steal? Do you know how great
             they are? Well, let me tell you... they are! Zidane will want to steal
             until he gets BOTH of these items. You should get the Avenger first,
             but it might take a while to get the Rubber Suit. Don't worry, how-
             ever, as Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen will heal you no matter what! The ab-
             ilities that you got, Bandit and Master Thief, should help you a lot
             in this stealing battle. When you are done stealing both of these
             jewels, then it's time to fight. Zidane should physically attack Earth
             Guardian unless he can do more damage with Thievery. Please note that
             he might, so there is no point in checking. In my battle, Zidane did
             around 1000 damage from the get go. Then that number shrunk to 750,
             somehow. So I took out Thievery and it did a strong 970 every time.
             This is what you have to do.
    
      Quina: Quina is actually a pretty solid choice. S/he can use Earthquake,
             White Wind, 1,000 Needles, and Mighty Guard. Earthquake is a pretty
             good attack against Taharka, as it is strong Blue Magic. White
             Wind is good if you find yourself in a bad situation. It will recover
             the party's health by a lot. 1,000 needles is by far one of s/he's
             best attacks, as it will always do 1000 damage. This attack is com-
             pletely reliable, never misses, and doesn't cost much Blue Magic.
             Mighty Guard will lower his defenses, but it costs a lot of MP for
             what it is worth. Also, if you find Quina low on HP use Pumpkin Head
             for some quick, reliable damage. You didn't forget about it, did you?
             It does Quina's full HP minus Quina's current HP. Only use it if you
             are low on HP.
    
             Quina should use 1,000 needles while Zidane is stealing. This will do
             1000 every time, no matter what. Keep the numbers tallied in your head
             of how much more HP he has. After Zidane has stolen, wait until the
             Earth Guardian's HP gets down to 1/8. This should be after you have
             taken 17500 HP away from him. Now you can eat the Earth Guardian! I
             think that this is a better end to that arrogant guardian. You also
             get the Earth Shake ability if you haven't already got it!

    Boss Name: Amdusias
    HP: 11000
    Steal: Tent, Ether
    Party: Zidane (44), Amarant (44), Freya (27)
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 42 with exception to
    ------------     Freya, who should be at level 27.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying.
                  *  You should also have Auto-Regen on Zidane and Amarant. I don't
                     blame you if you don't have it on Freya, she is at a low
                     level.
                  *  You should have a good supply of Rising Suns. (4-5 for this
                     battle alone.)
                  *  Freya should have the Lancer ability.
                  *  Everyone should have their strongest weapons.
                  *  Auto-Haste is nice on Zidane.
    
    Overview:  This boss is pathetically easy. He only uses an attack called Horn,
    ---------  which does around 1000 damage. This isn't that bad, considering it
               is his ONLY attack. He has bad defenses, and one hit by Zidane
               should be all that is needed for Freya to come to the fight. Zidane
               should be doing around 2500 damage, sadly. Freya should use Lancer
               while Zidane sticks to attacking. Amdusias doesn't have anything
               other then his physical attack. Freya might get low on HP, so you
               might just to have her heal herself instead of attacking. Amdusias
               is fairly fast, so Freya might die but that is no big deal. After
               you have around half of the HP taken away, Amarant will decide to
               join the fight. Then this battle is a walk in the park. With how
               high the damage output is compared to the HP, you should be done
               with this fight shortly. Try to have ever at high HP when you end
               this battle, he will have to fight many others soon.
    
    Attacks:  *  Horn is his one and only attack. This is a physical attack, so if
    --------     you have defense then it shouldn't do much damage. It hits one
                 party member for 1000 damage. This might seem bad, but with Auto-
                 Potion it is nothing. It might be bad on Freya, however. This is
                 his only attack, so he has to abuse it. You might find him to this
                 attack twice, but it doesn't do anything to anyone except Freya.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Zidane's role, if you didn't know already, is to physically attack.
             He should be doing around 2500 damage per turn, which is amazing
             considering Amdusias' low HP. If Thievery is better, have him use
             that prudently. You might want to save it for the upcoming battles
             and stick to attacking. Amdusias doesn't have anything to steal be-
             sides a Tent and an Ether, which is laughable. Zidane's damage output
             alone should be able to win this fight. He should have Auto-Potion and
             Auto-Regen equipped, but if you aren't advanced enough then you just
             might have Auto-Potion. That's fine, you can survive a lot of hits
             from Amdusias.
    
      Freya: Freya then comes into the fight after Zidane does. Have her use Lancer
             or any better skill until she runs out of MP. Then she can proceed to
             Jumping and healing. I advise that you have her be a healer, also,
             because your damage output won't be that great with Freya. She has to
             have Chemist by now so throw Hi-Potions right and left. Also, use
             Reis' Wind if things start to get sticky. This will cast Regen on the
             whole party. Of course, if everyone has Auto-Regen on then there is
             no plausible need to do it. Freya could also cast a better Dragon
             Skill if she has it. She might just want to heal herself in this
             battle, Amdusias tends to gang up on her. If he does that, then you
             might find Freya dead. This doesn't matter much, however.
    
    Amarant: Amarant, yet again, is your all-star. He is turning into a full-time
             but not full-blown hero. Have him throw Rising Suns at Amdusias. It
             will do around 4000 damage each turn! This is pretty spectacular con-
             sidering his regular attacks do around 1500 damage. This is why I told
             you to get 5 Rising Suns; 5 will kill Amdusias. If you don't have
             have any Rising Suns, then stick to attacking physically.

    Boss Name: Abadon
    HP: 12500
    Steal: Garnet, Phoenix Pinion, Vaccine
    Party: Zidane (44), Steiner (42), Quina (35)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 42 with exception to
    ------------     Quina, who should be around 35.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying.
                  *  You should also have Auto-Regen on everyone. You might just
                     have it on Zidane, and that's okay.
                  *  Quina should have 1,000 needles.
                  *  Everyone should have their strongest weapons.
                  *  Auto-Haste is nice on Zidane.
    
    Overview:  I found this battle to be about your characters' level. It isn't
    ---------  nearly as easy as the first battle, but then it isn't very tough,
               either. Abadon only has two attacks to begin with. One does minimal
               damage to the party while the other does a lot of damage on one
               character. The bad part is Abadon is very very very fast. So he
               might be able to get two attacks in before you can even heal. This
               might make this fight annoying. He tends not to abuse his physical
               attacks, however. After you get around a fourth of his HP taken away
               Zidane will join the fight. Then it will be really easy to destroy
               Abadon. Zidane and Steiner will do around 5000 damage each, taking
               away just below half of his HP in a turn! Quina's 1,000 needles will
               make it to about half. This fight won't last very long. I give it
               a medium because of the beginning. You should be able to take ad-
               vantage once Zidane comes in, however.
    
    Attacks:  *  He has a magic attack (I forgot the name) that does around 500
    --------     damage to all characters. This isn't that bad, considering Auto-
                 Potion can just about heal it up. The bad part is it attacks all
                 characters, unlike his physical attack. You shouldn't find much
                 of a problem with this unless you don't have Auto-Potion with
                 high potions.
    
              *  His physical attacks do around 1000 damage to one character. This
                 is pretty bad, considering Quina should only have around 2000 HP.
                 He uses this attack often, also. There is no real way to counter
                 this except to heal, heal, and heal. You might find your charact-
                 ers dead just because he abuses this attack. He is fast so he
                 might be able to get two attacks in before Quina or Steiner can
                 heal up. It only attacks one character, however.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Zidane comes into the battle pretty late. I don't know why he comes
             in so late, he must be feeling really bad. Anyway, Zidane's top pri-
             ority in this fight is to attack. The items that Abadon has to offer
             really aren't that great, you should have all of them by now. The only
             one that you might be curios out is the Garnet, but you should already
             have that because Beatrix gave it to you. The other two items are
             low items that make no sense to steal. Zidane should do around 3000
             damage with his attacks in this fight. I don't advise that you use
             Thievery unless progressively better then his attacks.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's role, as you all may know by now, is to attack. His attacks
             will do a lot of damage, around 2000 to be exact. As you can see, if
             you are anywhere near the projected level this fight really is not
             that hard. Since Steiner does not have Vivi in the party, he cannot
             use his highly acclaimed magic sword abilities. If Steiner gets low
             on HP have him use Darkside. As we all know, his health should be up
             and running again after he uses it. He should also use any better
             ability that you may have picked up in Side Quests.
    
      Quina: Quina is actually a pretty solid character. S/he can use Earthquake,
             White Wind, 1,000 needles, and Mighty Guard. Earthquake is a pretty
             good attack against Taharka, as it is strong Blue Magic. White
             Wind is good if you find yourself in a bad situation. It will recover
             the party's health by a lot. 1,000 needles is by far one of s/he's
             best attacks, as it will always do 1000 damage. This attack is com-
             pletely reliable, never misses, and doesn't cost much Blue Magic.
             Mighty Guard will lower his defenses, but it costs a lot of MP for
             what it is worth. Also, if you find Quina low on HP use Pumpkin Head
             for some quick, reliable damage. You didn't forget about it, did you?
             It does Quina's full HP minus Quina's current HP. Only use it if you
             are low on HP.

    Boss Name: Shell Dragon
    HP: 12500
    Steal: Phoenix Pinion, Tent, Hi-Potion, and Vaccine
    Party: Zidane (44), Dagger (35)
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    
    Preparation:  *  Zidane should be at level 42, while Dagger should be around
    ------------     level 35.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying.
                  *  You should also have Auto-Regen on everyone. You might just
                     have it on Zidane, and that's okay.
                  *  Dagger should have Shiva and/or Bahamut ready.
                  *  Zidane should have his strongest weapons
                  *  Auto-Haste wouldn't hurt anyone besides Shell Dragon.
                  *  Feather Boots help a lot because of they absorb earth damage.
                     If you have them equipped remember NOT to have the Auto-Float
                     ability so you can absorb his Earth Shake.
    
    Overview:  This fight can be very hard if you don't have Auto-Potion/Auto-
    ---------  Regen. Shell Dragon has some very mean attacks. Anyway, the battle
               starts off with Zidane fighting Shell Dragon alone. Shell Dragon
               will use smash on the third turn and bring Zidane's HP down to one.
               Out of nowhere, someone will use Curaga on Zidane! This is Dagger!
               Even if Dagger didn't have Curaga, she still heals Zidane complete
               ly. Now the battle is a lot easier with Dagger to heal everyone.
               Shell Dragon might abuse the usage of Smash if you hurt him to much.
               This still can be healed with Cura/Curaga. This battle really isn't
               that hard if you are on your feet.
    
    Attacks:  *  Snort is Shell Dragon's most deadly attack. Though you might not
    --------     see it, if you do you will be throwing the television out the
                 window. Snort takes one player from this battle. Whether it be
                 Zidane or Dagger we know it is bad. You won't be seeing this
                 character until the end of the battle, which you might not even
                 get to. He never uses Snort, really, unless you are ultra powerful
                 and destroy him in a couple hits. Then he might use it, but don't
                 worry about it if you are at the projected level. There is no way
                 to "counter" its effect and it only hits one person. (Obviously.)
    
              *  Smash would probably be considered more deadly then Snort. Why?
                 Because it reduces a characters' HP to ONE! This is an insane
                 attack that he uses a lot more often then Snort. It hits one per-
                 son and no matter how much HP they have, it will be reduced to
                 one. Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen will really come in handy here. You
                 can have most of your HP back before your next turn. Also Dagger
                 can quickly heal this away. Shell Dragon won't use it at first,
                 so don't worry about that. Overall this is one deadly attack.
    
              *  Earth Shake is a magic spell, which he loves to cast. It will do
                 earth-type damage on all characters. This should do around 500-
                 1000 damage, depending on the character and their equipment. It
                 can be deadly to Dagger, because of her low HP, but Auto-Potion
                 should heal it right up. You shouldn't really worry about this
                 attack, but it can be life threatening. You might want to equip
                 the Feather Boots to absorb Earth damage. That would mean that
                 the attack that he uses most often would heal you! This would
                 make the boss such a pushover.
    
              *  Charge is the weakest attack in his arsenal, but definitely not
                 one to be taken lightly. It will do around 700 damage to one
                 character which isn't that bad. He doesn't use this attack much
                 but it will be a nice finishing move for him to do after Smash.
                 Don't take this attack lightly and heal all the damage you lost.
                 Auto-Potion should be able to take care of it on its own.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: First off, you might notice that Shell Dragon has nothing to steal.
             Don't waste turns trying to steal stupid stuff like that. The first
             three turns will be without Dagger. This is fine, though. Shell Dragon
             tends to use Earth Shake and Charge during these turns. These are very
             weak attacks that Auto-Potion can suck up. Just attack physically for
             three turns. On the third Shell Dragon will use Smash. Then Dagger
             will appear and heal all of your health! Now you can proceed to hack-
             ing away at Shell Dragon without having to worry about HP. You're at-
             tacks should do around 2500 damage. That means that after five attacks
             he should be dead. Note that your first three attacks don't count in
             his projected HP of 12500.
    
     Dagger: Dagger will appear after the third turn in savior attempt. She will
             heal Zidane's HP after that malevolent attack called Smash. Now that
             you have her, too, you won't have much trouble with this fight. Dagger
             should be a full-time healer when Smash comes around. The other two
             attacks are really nothing to worry about. Dagger should be using
             Shiva if she can. Shell Dragon is weak verse ice so it will do a lot
             of damage. If you don't have that, then have her use Bahamut. You
             very well should have one of these. They will do around 2500 damage
             each. Of course, if you got tons of Aquamarines then use Leviathan.
             Dagger might get ejected, but Zidane can wrap things up.

    Boss Name: Silver Dragon
    HP: 24000
    Steal: Kaiser Knucklers, Dragon Mail, Elixir
    Party: Zidane (47), Vivi (47), Dagger (42), Steiner (45)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 45 with exception to
    ------------     Dagger, who should be around 40.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying. Also Auto-Regen is a must.
                  *  Vivi should have the Black Robe so he can use Flare.
                  *  Dagger should have Bahamut ready to use.
                  *  Auto-Reflect on all characters is nice, but not necessary. If
                     your characters are still learning stuff like Bahamut and
                     such then just have Dagger cast Reflect on everyone.
                  *  Zidane might want to have Master Thief, Bandit, and Mug
                     equipped. This is only if you think the items are worthwhile.
                  *  Strongest weapon and armor is a must in this fight.
                  *  Wind absorbing/defending equipment will make this fight sad.
    
    Overview:  Silver Dragon is no pushover unless you have played this game a ton
    ---------  of times like me, then it was easy. See, Silver Dragon can be a
               pretty easy or pretty tough boss depending how long you let him
               live. I say this because some people will use magic up the yin yang
               when fighting him while others will preserve it for the other
               battles. Since we are late in the game, however, you are allowed to
               abuse usage of magic to an extent. You should have acquired enough
               Ethers so in the following battles you can just heal your MP right
               up. This makes for easy boss fights; Magic completely destroys the
               enemy. Anyway, if you decided to use magic Silver Dragon will be
               very easy to defeat. He only has around 24000 HP. If you decided to
               bring Wind Equipment along then it will be even easier because you
               will absorb a couple of his attacks.
    
    Attacks:  *  Shockwave is probably the best attack in Silver Dragon's arsenal
    --------     just because it does a lot of damage. You will see around 1000
                 damage to the whole party with this attack! It can be very bad if
                 you didn't take the time to equip your abilities correctly. If
                 you did, however, equip Auto-Potion and Auto-Regen this fight will
                 be very easy. After he does this everyone will use Auto-Potion and
                 gain all there HP back with Auto-Regen while they are all Auto-
                 Potioning. If you don't have it, then I guess you would say that
                 you are "up the creek without a paddle." Have Dagger heal the most
                 important character.
    
              *  Aerial Slash is wind elemental type damage so, if you have any
                 wing absorbing equipment equipped, it will give you HP. This can
                 be good, especially with Vivi because the Octagon Rod has absorb
                 versus Wind. For the other characters, this might be a problem.
                 Aerial Slash is similar to Shockwave, only it does less damage.
                 It hits the whole party and such. You should know how to counter
                 it.
    
              *  Claw is Silver Dragon's only physical attack. It will do around
                 750 damage to one character. This attack should be the least of
                 your worries for the simple reason that 750 damage isn't much.
                 Have your Auto stuff restore the HP, or have Dagger heal. You
                 won't be seeing this attack often.
    
              *  Twister is a fairly odd attack. The reason for this is because it
                 is completely random in damage. Sometimes it hits for 200 damage
                 and sometimes 1000 damage! It's sort of like Quina's weapons, only
                 it gets more tenacious if you are doing better in the fight. When
                 I saw this attack two times in the fight. The first was in the
                 beginning, and it did 500 damage to the party. The second was at
                 the very end, just after I pulverized him. It did a whopping 1000
                 damage to the entire party! I would think that the damage has to
                 do with either how much HP he has left or badly he is getting
                 beaten.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Let me first talk about stealing. To steal in this fight depends upon
             what abilities you have equipped, and if you are going to play Chocobo
             Hot and Cold. See you can get the Kaiser Knucklers, which you are
             probably eyeing, at H&C if you progress nicely. Most people don't like
             to play the game, though, and want to steal it. In this case, I hope
             you have at least Bandit equipped. Master Thief would help a lot,
             also. It will take a while to get the Knucklers as they are the most
             important item. This could be very bad if you don't have a good heal-
             ing defense. Anyway, after you steal, or decided not to, Zidane will
             be left with plain attacking. He should be doing at least 2500 damage
             each time. If his Thievery skill is better, use it. MP doesn't matter
             because you probably have at least 150 right now.
    
       Vivi: I consider Vivi to be a powerful character at this point in the game.
             His magic, in short, is wonderful. Flare will do a terrific amount
             of damage to Silver Dragon. You can preserve magic if you want, but I
             don't think you should. Flare will take away around 1/6 of his HP
             very easily. If you are uneasy about using Ethers, then use a weaker
             level 3 version spell like Firaga.
    
    Steiner: Steiner will make this battle laughable. Flare Sword does a ton of
             damage to Silver Dragon. Around 5000, to be precise. This is a lot,
             but then Flare costs a whopping 60 MP to use. I would just use an
             Ether, but do whatever you desire. Attack if you really want to save
             MP. Also, you might want to have Steiner have Auto-Haste equipped just
             for a laugh. You can't get Auto-Regen up to this point so he actually
             has some magic stones to be covered. Auto-Haste will make him attack
             pretty fast. ^_^
    
     Dagger: Dagger won't have much of a job in this fight. She should really do
             the healing, but it seems Auto-Potion and Auto-Regen have taken her
             job away from her! She should be on standby, just in case Silver Dra-
             gon's Twister does an insane amount of damage or something. Rather
             then that, you can have her cast Bahamut or some semi-bad eidolon if
             you feel like it. With your offense, though, you might just want her
             to waste turns by attacking.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is a powerhouse in this battle. She can use Madeen for around
             3000 damage! This attack will vary; sometimes it will do 2000-4000
             damage. Madeen is a killer skill, but it has a killer MP cost. Use it
             wisely. Also, if you have Boost then please do it. It will make Madeen
             even stronger! Anyway, onto Eiko's full-blown duty. This duty is
             simple; Heal. Curaga and Cura are always your best friends. Use Hi-
             Potions if you want to use your magic prudently. Eiko can also cast
             Reflect and Shell and whatnot on the party if you want to. Reflect is
             actually very good because it some of Silver Dragon's spells and it
             hurts him instead of him absorbing it.
    
    Amarant: Amarant's role is simple; Throw Rising Suns. These little things will
             do immense damage to Silver Dragon. I told you to only use Amarant if
             you had tons of Rising Suns and the reason for this is all Amarant has
             over Steiner is throwing stuff. Steiner does have Flare Sword, though,
             which sort of makes up for throwing stuff. If Amarant doesn't have
             anything to throw then stick to physically attacking and throwing
             (not literally) some skills in there if necessary.
    
      Freya: At this point in time, you should have a skill that's better then
             Lancer. I advise that you use it. I'm not updated with Freya so I
             wouldn't know. I didn't really use Freya that much. Use Reis' Wind
             if everyone doesn't have Auto-Regen. After you run out of MP, stick
             to Jumping.
    
      Quina: If you did choose Quina, I hope you substituted s/he for one of the
             healers or you really will have a tough fight! Quina should use White
             Wind and Hi-Potions to heal people. That is Quina's minor priority.
             S/he should also use 1,000 needles because it, yet again, is a re-
             liable attack that will always do 1000 damage. At this point in time,
             1000 damage might seem like nothing. However, Quina's attacks really
             aren't that hot, and vary greatly. Quina should also use Pumpkin Head
             if Quina's HP gets low. Finally, Quina might want to use Limit Glove
             if you somehow have 1 HP.

    Boss Name: Garland
    HP: 40000
    Steal: Dark Gear, Ninja Gear, Battle Boots
    Party: Zidane (47), Vivi (47), Dagger (42), Steiner (45)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 45 with exception to
    ------------     Dagger, who should be around 40.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying. Also Auto-Regen is a must.
                  *  Vivi should have the Black Robe so he can use Flare.
                  *  Dagger should have Bahamut ready to use.
                  *  Auto-Reflect on all characters is nice, but not necessary. If
                     your characters are still learning stuff like Bahamut and
                     such then just have Dagger cast Reflect on everyone.
                  *  Zidane might want to have Master Thief, Bandit, and Mug
                     equipped. This is only if you think the items are worthwhile.
                  *  Strongest weapon and armor is a must in this fight.
                  *  Wind absorbing/defending equipment will make this fight sad.
                  *  Dagger should know Silence.
    
    Overview:  When the fight starts, heal everyone's MP with Ethers. This should
    ---------  only take one turn from everyone. Anyway, Garland is probably one of
               the most overrated bosses in the entire game, next to the Ark. Sure,
               his attacks do a lot of damage, but he has his secrets. See, Garland
               can have the Blind and Silence status alignments! This means that
               you can disallow him the use of magic, and his physical attacks will
               miss all the time. Joy! To bad Blind really isn't that great, be-
               cause all Garland has is magic. Silence is the sleeper hit in this
               fight, I just wish Garland had a weakness versus Mini, also. Anyway,
               your top priority should be using Silence. Dagger should be able to
               make it stick on the first try, second if you aren't that lucky.
               Once you have this down Garland really isn't that great. He still
               has some pretty powerful attacks, but Silence took the guts out of
               him. After you cast Silence, you will want to cast Reflect on every
               single party member. This is so Garland doesn't Stop anyone, which
               stinks. He also won't use Flare so joy. Garland's HP might be a bit
               discouraging, but when you see all the damage that your characters
               do on Garland you should think otherwise. At the end of the battle,
               remember to have everyone at full HP and give them proper Ether
               care. The following boss isn't that hard, but he can be if you go
               into it weak. Oh, one last thing. Have Vivi cast Slow if you want to
               make him attack even slower. You should only use this if you aren't
               anywhere near the projected level, however.
    
    Attacks:  *  Stop is Garland's most deadly attack. He will use it if you give
    --------     him a beat down, or if you didn't cast Reflect. See, Stop stops
                 (look at the name) a character for the rest of the battle. This
                 is pretty much brutal on all of your characters, since they all
                 play a key role in this fight. If you casted Reflect on everyone,
                 you will not see this attack once during the fight. Why? Garland
                 isn't stupid enough to cast Stop on himself! And don't worry about
                 him casting Reflect on himself and using magic from there, he
                 wouldn't dare to do so.
    
              *  Flare is another one of those "end all" attacks if everyone does
                 not have Reflect equipped. If you do, then it will just bounce
                 back and do damage on Garland. However, he isn't stupid enough to
                 do this. Anyway, if someone doesn't have Reflect on Garland will
                 use this deadly attack. Sadly, I do not know how much damage it
                 does because I had everyone equipped with the Reflect. All I know
                 is that is should be lethal. It only hits one character, also.
                 This is the main reason why Reflect is key in this battle.
    
              *  Oh, Garland does an attack, I forgot the name of it... It is
                 "Wave" or "Charge" or something like that. He does his Dragon Ball
                 Z stance and magically makes an energy ball and throws it at one
                 character. A complete rip off of Dragon Ball Z, I know. Anyway,
                 this attack only hits one character for around 1000 damage. It
                 isn't that bad, considering Dagger can heal it right up. It is
                 Garland's most deadly attack if you casted Reflect on everyone. I
                 advise that you look out for this attack. On characters like Vivi
                 and Dagger it can kill them.
    
              *  Psychokinesis is, like the name, a psycho weird attack. It will
                 pick a character up and throw them down on there head. It sounds
                 very painful, but it isn't. It will do around 750 damage to one
                 character. This should almost be pathetic at your point, 750
                 damage adds up, however. If he does it 7-8 times on one character,
                 which he does sometimes, you might find yourself in a sticky spot.
                 You shouldn't worry to much about this attack, all in all, but
                 look at the characters he does it on. If he keeps doing it on
                 one character, then obviously you would want to Cure them, or
                 possibly cast Shell on them.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Look at those items up there. Do they have any value to you? They
             might, depending on if you play Side Quests. If they do, then you
             should want to steal them. It will be hard without Master Thief or
             Bandit equipped, but it might be worth it in the end. Zidane will be
             doing around 3000 damage each turn with attacks. If you think that
             you can feasibly take the loss and have him steal, then go for it.
             However, I didn't bother to steal those items. I knew I could get all
             of them later in the game and decided not to. So, onto the duty.
             Zidane should steal if necessary, and use physical attacks. Obviously,
             use Thievery if it does more damage then his regular attacks. Zidane
             has tons of HP, so you don't have to use it wisely.
    
     Dagger: Dagger has a pretty big role in this fight, also. In the beginning of
             the fight, she is to cast Reflect on everyone in the party. This is
             so Garland's best attacks will be Reflected, and thereby not be used.
             Once you have that taken care of, you will also want to cast Silence
             and possibly Blind of Garland. These should stick in the first turns
             and make your life a lot easier. Now Garland is severely weakened, and
             won't be able to use his best attacks. Now it's time to be a full time
             healer for the party. Heal them as necessary. You should have both
             Cure and Cura, but not Curaga. It doesn't matter, you shouldn't find
             your characters needing that much HP. Use Hi-Potions instead of Cure
             if you have Chemist equipped. Lastly, Dagger can open a can of worms
             and cast Bahamut if you like. This will do a lot of damage to Garland.
             You might want to save Dagger's MP for the last battle, however.
    
       Vivi: At first, you might have one minor job before you have Vivi cast Flare
             up the yin yang. You might want to cast Slow on Garland. This will
             slow him down, and he will attack less often. This might help, but if
             you are at the recommended level then I would just stick to casting
             Flare. Vivi will do around 5000 damage on him. This is really good.
             If you want to be prudent about magic, then switch to Firaga or any
             of the better 'ga's. They should do at least 4000 damage. Vivi should
             keep casting these attacks unless you get in a sticky situation.
    
    Steiner: Steiner will be sucking all those precious Ethers that you got
             throughout the game. Flare Sword will do terrific damage to Garland,
             around 5000 to be exact. This is really good. Now you see why Gar-
             land's 40000 health really isn't a big deal. You will have to throw
             Steiner a Ether ever so often because Flare Sword costs a towering 60
             MP. If you want to be prudent magic-wise, then stick with Firaga. It
             should do a strong 4000 damage and give you a good bang for your buck.
             If you don't want to use magic, then stick to physically attacking.
             Steiner will still manage to do some good damage. Also, if he gets
             low on HP then have him use Darkside. This will regain all of his HP.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is a powerhouse in this battle. She can use Madeen for around
             3000 damage! This attack will vary; sometimes it will do 2000-4000
             damage. Madeen is a killer skill, but it has a killer MP cost. Use it
             wisely. Also, if you have Boost then please do it. It will make Madeen
             even stronger! Anyway, onto Eiko's full-blown duty. This duty is
             simple; Heal. Curaga and Cura are always your best friends. Use Hi-
             Potions if you want to use your magic prudently. Eiko can also cast
             Reflect and Shell and whatnot on the party if you want to. Reflect is
             actually very good because it some of Garland's spells and it
             hurts him instead of him absorbing it. In fact, Reflect is absolutely
             needed and you should cast it at the beginning of the fight.
    
    Amarant: Amarant's role is simple; Throw Rising Suns. These little things will
             do immense damage to Silver Dragon. I told you to only use Amarant if
             you had tons of Rising Suns and the reason for this is all Amarant has
             over Steiner is throwing stuff. Steiner does have Flare Sword, though,
             which sort of makes up for throwing stuff. If Amarant doesn't have
             anything to throw then stick to physically attacking and throwing
             (not literally) some skills in there if necessary.
    
      Freya: At this point in time, you should have a skill that's better then
             Lancer. I advise that you use it. I'm not updated with Freya so I
             wouldn't know. I didn't really use Freya that much. Use Reis' Wind
             if everyone doesn't have Auto-Regen. After you run out of MP, stick
             to Jumping.
    
      Quina: If you did choose Quina, I hope you substituted s/he for one of the
             healers or you really will have a tough fight! Quina should use White
             Wind and Hi-Potions to heal people. That is Quina's minor priority.
             S/he should also use 1,000 needles because it, yet again, is a re-
             liable attack that will always do 1000 damage. At this point in time,
             1000 damage might seem like nothing. However, Quina's attacks really
             aren't that hot, and vary greatly. Quina should also use Pumpkin Head
             if Quina's HP gets low. Finally, Quina might want to use Limit Glove
             if you somehow have 1 HP.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Kuja
    HP: 42500
    Steal: Light Robe, Carabini Mail, Ether
    Party: Zidane (47), Vivi (47), Dagger (42), Steiner (45)
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  All characters must be at least at level 45 with exception to
    ------------     Dagger, who should be around 40.
                  *  Every character must have Auto-Potion with Hi-Potions. This
                     should go without saying. Also Auto-Regen is a must.
                  *  Vivi should have the Black Robe so he can use Flare.
                  *  Dagger should have Bahamut ready to use.
                  *  Do not have Auto-Reflect!
                  *  Zidane might want to have Master Thief, Bandit, and Mug
                     equipped. This is only if you think the items are worthwhile.
                  *  Strongest weapon and armor is a must in this fight.
                  *  Wind absorbing/defending equipment will make this fight sad.
                  *  Dagger should know Silence.
    
    Overview:  Kuja can be a nuisance if you use magic in this fight. He will cast
    ---------  Flare Stare over and over and over and over every turn if you use
               magic. How do you get around this? Simply put: Don't use magic. You
               might be going "WHAT!?" right about now, but it is for a good rea-
               son. See, if you abuse the usage of magic, Kuja will abuse the usage
               of Flare Stare. Flare Stare, in short, is a very deadly attack. It
               will kill off party members if you let it. Read the attack section
               for more detail about it. This fight should go right along if you
               don't OD on magic. Your characters should get into a trance during
               this fight. When they do, I can honestly say that this is the time
               to use magic. Rather then that, Kuja is pretty easy. Just to give
               you a heads up, don't cast Reflect in this battle. This will leave
               Kuja with ONLY being able to cast Flare Stare. This is very, very,
               bad. Also, with Reflect you won't be able to heal your characters
               properly. If you try to heal them, it will bounce to Kuja. You can
               get around this with Hi-Potions and Phoenix Downs, however.
    
    Attacks:  *  Flare Stare is by far Kuja's mostly deadly attack. It does the
    --------     character's level times 35. So, if you had a character at 45 it
                 would do 45 * 35 which is 1575 damage. This may seem like a lot,
                 but that's why you have Dagger and Auto-Potion equipped! Some
                 characters should have Auto-Regen, also. This attack hurts every-
                 one, and it is by far one of the most annoying attacks on disc
                 three. (Unless you fought Ozma, then any of his attacks take dibs
                 over Flare Stare.) You can get around him not abusing the usage
                 of this attack by not using magic.
    
              *  Thundaga is a thunder-based attack that does a hell of a lot less
                 damage then Flare Stare, I'll tell you that right now! It will do
                 around 1000 damage to one character, which isn't a lot compared
                 to his fantastic other attack. You really want to be seeing this
                 attack in the battle. It can easily be cured by Dagger.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: We have somewhat of a dilemma here today, Folks. Kuja has some pretty
             good armor, but is it worth stealing? Well, if you are playing the
             game with the cotton robe trick then I would say yes. The Light Robe
             and Carabini Mail are good items on their own, and can be sold for
             a hefty profit. After this, have Zidane attack the cross dresser. He
             should do around 3000 damage, which is pretty good. Don't be discour-
             aged when Kuja says "Is that all you got?" because he is all talk.
             Zidane will undoubtedly get into Trance in this fight. This is very
             good, because he will be able to use Grand Lethal. This should do
             9999 damage every turn, and make you want to jump up and down with
             joy. Oh, and use Grand Lethal because you have enough MP to kill him
             without Ether usage.
    
       Vivi: You might be thinking that Vivi is out of the job in this fight, but
             he isn't. You will still want him to cast Flare every single turn, as
             usual. Just because Kuja will use Flare Stare if everyone casts magic
             doesn't mean everyone is going to cast magic. Flare is Vivi's best
             option here. He should still be doing a strong 5000 damage. Also, toss
             him an Ether if he gets low on MP.
    
    Steiner: Steiner cannot and should not and will not use magic sword attacks in
             this battle. The simple reason for this is Kuja will go bonkers and
             cast Flare Stare until you want to kill him. Steiner should stick with
             physical attacks. You might want him to use Flare Sword at the end of
             the fight to quickly expose of Kuja. Also, if Steiner gets low on HP
             have him use Darkside. He doesn't have high spirit so Auto-Regnen will
             not regenerate as often.
    
     Dagger: Dagger is really the one that was left out in the cold. If you have
             Auto-Reflect on, which was an absolute godsend in the previous
             battles, it will Reflect magic off of the characters and hit Kuja.
             This is very bad. You wouldn't want to heal the boss! Dagger should
             use Hi-Potions and Phoenix Downs. She can use Cura/Life on the charac-
             ters that don't have Reflect, however. Don't have her use Bahamut and
             keep her on hold via triangle so she can be a full time healer. Status
             effects don't affect Kuja, so don't waste turns with those.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is a powerhouse in this battle. She can use Madeen for around
             3000 damage! This attack will vary; sometimes it will do 2000-4000
             damage. Madeen is a killer skill, but it has a killer MP cost. Use it
             wisely. Also, if you have Boost then please do it. It will make Madeen
             even stronger! Anyway, onto Eiko's full-blown duty. This duty is
             simple; Heal. Curaga and Cura are always your best friends. Use Hi-
             Potions if you want to use your magic prudently. Eiko can also cast
             Reflect and Shell and whatnot on the party if you want to. Reflect is
             actually very good because it some of Garland's spells and it
             hurts him instead of him absorbing it. In fact, Reflect is absolutely
             needed and you should cast it at the beginning of the fight.
    
    Amarant: Amarant's role is simple; Throw Rising Suns. These little things will
             do immense damage to Silver Dragon. I told you to only use Amarant if
             you had tons of Rising Suns and the reason for this is all Amarant has
             over Steiner is throwing stuff. Steiner does have Flare Sword, though,
             which sort of makes up for throwing stuff. If Amarant doesn't have
             anything to throw then stick to physically attacking and throwing
             (not literally) some skills in there if necessary.
    
      Freya: At this point in time, you should have a skill that's better then
             Lancer. I advise that you use it. I'm not updated with Freya so I
             wouldn't know. I didn't really use Freya that much. Use Reis' Wind
             if everyone doesn't have Auto-Regen. After you run out of MP, stick
             to Jumping.
    
      Quina: If you did choose Quina, I hope you substituted s/he for one of the
             healers or you really will have a tough fight! Quina should use White
             Wind and Hi-Potions to heal people. That is Quina's minor priority.
             S/he should also use 1,000 needles because it, yet again, is a re-
             liable attack that will always do 1000 damage. At this point in time,
             1000 damage might seem like nothing. However, Quina's attacks really
             aren't that hot, and vary greatly. Quina should also use Pumpkin Head
             if Quina's HP gets low. Finally, Quina might want to use Limit Glove
             if you somehow have 1 HP.

    Boss Name: Nova Dragon
    HP: 55000
    Steal: Grand Armor, Remedy
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  Equip any armor that absorbs wind and water during this fight.
    ------------     If you can't find absorbing equipment, then try to find some
                     100% reductions.
                  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
                  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
                  *  Dragon Killer ability will help out a lot in this fight.
    
    Overview:  This fight isn't very hard if you are prepared correctly. Nova
    ---------  Dragon has an arsenal of deadly attacks, but you should be able to
               survive it if you have good spirit.
    
    Attacks:  *  Tidal Wave is Nova Dragon's most deadly attack because it does
    --------     great damage. It will do around 1000 damage to every character in
                 the party. It's pretty bad, but you should be able to survive it
                 with Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen. If you have water absorbing equipment
                 on you will absorb the damage!
    
              *  Shockwave is another one of Nova Dragon's deadly attacks. It will
                 do around 1000 damage to every character. Again, with the right
                 abilities it should be easy.
    
              *  Aerial Slash is wind type damage that hits one character. It is
                 pretty powerful, but not as bad the other two above. Wind absorb-
                 ing damage will make this a joke.
    
              *  Twister does completely random damage, and is wind elemental type.
                 Its damage is random, but I find that if you are pulverizing Nova
                 Dragon that he will use it more and it will do bad damage. It's
                 wind type, again, so absorbing it will make this boss fight easy.
    
              *  Psychokinesis is a pretty weak physical attack that will pick
                 someone up in the air, turn them around, and throw them on the
                 ground. It is similar to Garland's in that way, and because it
                 does around the same amount of damage. This is on one character,
                 mind you.
    
              *  Counterattack isn't all that bad. It won't do much damage, but it
                 still can be a nuisance if you have little HP. I wouldn't worry
                 about it.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Zidane will want to steal until he gets the Grand Armor. Then he
             should physically attack or use Thievery.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's main role in this fight is to use Shock. If you have some-
             thing better, or something almost as good, use that.
    
      Freya: Freya should have Dragon Killer on. Her attacks will do a lot of dam-
             age. Have her jump or use Dragon's Crest. These will do awesome
             amounts of damage.
    
       Eiko: Eiko should be the parties healer. Use Curaga and Life as needed. She
             can also use Madeen if she feels like it.
    
       Vivi: Vivi should have Reflect up on himself. With Reflect X2, he should
             cast Flare on himself. This will do tons of damage. If you do not have
             Reflect X2, then just stick to using Flare on him.
    
     Dagger: Dagger's role is exactly the same as Eiko's. The only difference is
             that she should use Bahamut instead of Madeen.
    
    Amarant: Amarant should physically attack, use his best flair, or throw some-
             thing powerful. He should also use Chakra and Revive as needed.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Maliris
    HP: 60000
    Steal: Genji Armor, Ultima Sword, Masamine
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  Equip any armor that absorbs fire magic during this fight.
    ------------     If you can't find absorbing equipment, then try to find some
                     100% reductions.
                  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
                  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
    
    Overview:  Maliris isn't that tough of a fight either. She has some pretty
    ---------  nasty attacks but overall she isn't that tough with the preparations
               all checked off. She does attack very fast, however.
    
    Attacks:  *  Flame Slash is a fire type attack that does a lot of damage. It
    --------     should kill all the weaker characters like Eiko. It only hits one
                 person, and that's about the best part. You can absorb it if you
                 want, but then she will use it less.
    
              *  Mustard Bomb will obviously kill a player and render them useless.
                 She tends not to use this much, however.
    
              *  Sword Quicker is an attack which she will use a lot. It doesn't
                 do much damage, however. The bad part about it is it will not heal
                 you. Don't you just love equipment...
    
              *  Firaga does a medium amount of damage and can kill a player if you
                 don't have Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen. It shouldn't be feared, how-
                 ever. This will also heal you if you can absorb fire.
    
              *  Esuna will heal her if she gets any unwanted status effects.
    
              *  Reflect will reflect magic. You shouldn't be using magic, anyhow.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: The items in this fight are pretty good to steal. I recommend that you
             get the Genji Armor and then hack away with Zidane. Physical attacks
             or Thievery will do just fine.
    
    Steiner: Steiner is to use Shock until he runs out of MP. Then you can either
             throw him an ether or have him physically attack.
    
      Freya: Freya's main job in this fight is to use Dragon's Crest. When she runs
             out of MP, you can have her Jump.
    
       Eiko: Eiko should heal the party. You might also want to cast Reflect on
             everyone so Firaga bounces back. She should also use Madeen in free
             turns.
    
       Vivi: Vivi should use Blizzaga until he runs out of MP.
    
     Dagger: Dagger will have the exact same role as Eiko.
    
    Amarant: Amarant should throw anything he has, use Flairs, or attack.

    Boss Name: Tiamat
    HP: 60000
    Steal: Grand Helmet, Blood Sword, Feather Boots
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    
    Preparation:  *  Equip any armor that absorbs wind during this fight. If you
    ------------     can't find absorbing equipment, then try to find some 100%
                     reductions.
                  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
                  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
                  *  Body Temp is a must.
    
    Overview:  This can easily be one of the most annoying bosses in the game. Tia-
    ---------  mat is like a super smart boss. He will use magic that absorbs your
               Strength and Magic. This will render that character almost useless.
               He also has Absorb MP, which is bad on virtually any character.
    
    Attacks:  *  Absorb Strength will render your fighting characters useless. Con-
    --------     sider them dead where they stand. It will make their attacks do
                 little damage.
    
              *  Absorb Magic is the same as Absorb Strength, but it will make any
                 magic users useless.
    
              *  Absorb MP is bad on all characters because you lose MP. This can
                 be "healed" with an Ether, however.
    
              *  Snort will eject a character from the fight. It sucks.
    
              *  Jet Fire will try to make all characters have the "Heat" status
                 effect. This is why you have Body Temp equipped. This attack will
                 be very bad if you don't.
    
              *  Silent Claw is a physical attack that will do medium damage. It
                 shouldn't be that bad. The only problem is it just about always
                 casts Silence on the character.
    
              *  Twister is probably his worst attack. It will do around 1000 da-
                 mage but you should have wind absorbing equipment on.
    
              *  He will cast Float on all characters from time to time so Twister
                 does even more damage. This might be good or bad.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Zidane has nothing to steal in this battle, so he should stick to att-
             acking. Remember to use Thievery if necessary. Absorb Strength will
             be bad. You will have to change to Thievery if he does this.
    
    Steiner: Steiner should use Shock until Tiamat casts Silence on him. Then he
             should use an Ether and cure Silence, then start up again. If he uses
             any of the absorbs, then switch to which one he didn't do.
    
      Freya: Freya should be using Dragon's Crest until she runs out of MP. Then
             she has the liberty to Jump.
    
       Eiko: Eiko should cast Curaga on the party to keep them at tiptop shape. You
             will also want her to be on hold before Tiamat attacks.
    
       Vivi: He should use Flare on Tiamat or anything else that is better.
    
     Dagger: Dagger has the same role as Eiko.
    
    Amarant: Amarant should be throwing stuff like there is no tomorrow.

    Boss Name: Kraken
    HP: 60000
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  Equip any armor that absorbs water during this fight.
    ------------     If you can't find absorbing equipment, then try to find some
                     100% reductions.
                  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
                  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
    
    Overview:  Kraken is the water guardian, but he one of the easiest guardians in
    ---------  the whole game. His attacks don't do much, either. He consists of
               three parts, two of which being tentacles that have around 18000
               damage each. Overall he isn't that hard.
    
    Attacks:  *  Waterga... what a weird name. And no, Vivi never can get this
    --------     attack. It will do around 1000 damage to everyone, which is not
                 that bad if you are at a high enough level.
    
              *  Water Gun hits everyone for around 750 damage. It's water elemen-
                 tal, however. If you have any water equipment then it will either
                 heal you or the damage will be severely reduced.
    
              *  Ink does a small amount of damage and casts Blind on a character.
                 No big deal here.
    
              *  Leg is a weak physical attack. It is very laughable.
    
              *  Esuna will heal status alignments if you dare to inflict any.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: There isn't that much to still so Zidane should be physically attack-
             ing. Of course, he is to use Thievery if it is better. Lastly, I found
             myself getting into Trance in this battle. I don't know why, I think
             the other bosses made my Trance Gauge go bonkers. Anyway, use Meo
             Twister if this happens.
    
    Steiner: Steiner should use Shock or Thundaga Sword if he has Vivi in the
             party with him.
    
      Freya: Freya should use Dragon's Crest and Jump.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is the healer of this fight, though I don't think it is needed.
             She will use all the basic healing spells. She should also cast Madeen
             so we can hack away at all three body parts at once.
    
       Vivi: Vivi should use Thundaga or Flare, whichever you think is better.
    
     Dagger: Dagger has the same job as Eiko, but she should be summoning Ramuh/
             Bahamut.
    
    Amarant: Amarant has to throw all the Rising Suns he has.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Lich
    HP: 60000
    Steal: Genji Gloves, Black Robe
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    
    Preparation:  *  Equip any armor that absorbs earth during this fight.
    ------------     If you can't find absorbing equipment, then try to find some
                     100% reductions.
                  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
                  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
                  *  No one is to be at a level divisible by 5.
                  *  Have Locomotion equipped before you fight.
    
    Overview:  When have seen Lich before. Zidane and Quina took him on at the -----
    ----  Earth place. He was, and still is, the Earth Guardian. This time
               around he is a lot more powerful. He is probably one of the toughest
               bosses you have foughten yet.
    
    Attacks:  *  Death will instantly kill a party member sometimes. This is a very
    --------     bad attack.
    
              *  Level 5 Death will kill all party members that have levels divi-
                 sible by 5. You could find a half-dead party.
    
              *  Stop will almost always stop a character. The only way to unstop
                 them is to have Eiko cast Dispel. This is a very bad attack but
                 you _should_ have Locomotion equipped.
    
              *  Doom didn't do anything to me, sadly.
    
              *  His physical attacks are back and better then ever. They will do
                 around 1200 damage to one character. This is more then plausible.
    
              *  All earth elemental attacks that he has are meaningless. You
                 _should_ be absorbing versus earth or at least have Auto-Float
                 equipped.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Zidane will want to hack away at him. Nothing to steal here.
    
    Steiner: Steiner should cast and recast shock until his head spins.
    
      Freya: Freya has the duty of casting Dragon's Crest. She also can Jump.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is the main damage dealer in this fight. She can cast Holy on him
             for _a lot_ of damage. Also have her cast Dispel on the characters if
             they get Stopped. Oh, and use Curaga as needed.
    
       Vivi: Vivi is to cast his strongest magic. This should be Flare.
    
     Dagger: Dagger has the same role as Eiko, but she can't cast Holy. V_V
    
    Amarant: Amarant has to throw everything he has.

    Boss Name: Deathguise
    HP: 55000
    Steal: Duel Claws, Elixir
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  Equip the best armor possible.
    ------------  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
                  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
                  *  No one is to be at a level divisible by 5.
                  *  Have Locomotion equipped before you fight.
    
    Overview:  Deathguise really isn't that tough of a boss. He abuses Death rights
    ---------  but that is about it. You shouldn't have much trouble unless you
               completely neglect reviving fallen characters. In the beginning of
               the fight he will always use Meteor. This sometimes does 300 damage
               and other times it does 2500 damage. It's completely random. If it
               does a lot of damage then reset and throw the dice again. After
               that, it is pretty much smooth sailing.
    
    Attacks:  *  Death will instantly kill a party member sometimes. This is a very
    --------     bad attack.
    
              *  Level 5 Death will kill all party members that have levels divi-
                 sible by 5. You could find a half-dead party.
    
              *  He uses Meteor as an "opening move" at the beginning of the
                 battle. Basically, the computer throws a die and sees how much
                 damage will be inflicted upon you. It could be a small amount,
                 then it could be somewhere in the 2000s. You might want to reset
                 if it is very high. Overall this attack is just like Twister.
    
              *  His physical attacks will do around 750 damage and hit one person.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: You might notice the terrible items that you can steal from Death-
             guise. You should already have the Duel Claws and plenty of Elixirs
             at hand. So you shouldn't steal items during this fight. Instead,
             have Zidane physically attack Deathguise. You can also use Thievery
             if you like. Don't worry about MP because after this battle you can
             go back to a save point and heal it back up. Zidane's main role is
             attacking in this fight.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's MP might be low, but I don't care, to be quite frank. His
             Shock does _so_ much damage that even if you use 20 Ethers it is worth
             it completely. Steiner's role is to cast Shock, or any other good
             sword art. If you have a very powerful weapon, like the Excalibur I
             or II, then you might want to just attack. However, you should mainly
             be using Shock in this fight. If you somehow have Vivi in your group,
             don't mind the Magic Sword. It won't do as much damage.
    
      Freya: As we all know, Freya has a simple role. It is to cast Dragon's Crest
             on Deathguise. This will do a lot of damage, depending on how many
             dragons you killed during the game. This is all she should be doing
             during the fight. Use Ethers has necessary. Also, if you somehow don't
             have Auto-Regen on all characters cast Reis' Wind please.
    
       Eiko: Eiko can be on offense or defense, depending on how you want to fight.
             In most cases, you will want her on offense. This is because Auto-
             Potion/Auto-Regen will take up her job of healing. So, it is your job
             to cast Holy over and over. This will do around 9999 damage to Death-
             guise. She can also heal, but you probably won't need too.
    
       Vivi: Vivi should cast his strongest magic spell.
    
     Dagger: Dagger should be a healer, though she can also use Bahamut or Ark if
             you want to.
    
    Amarant: Amarant should be throwing semi-good weapon that you have duplicates
             of or no longer need. He should primarily be throwing Rising Suns,
             though, because we can use those for the upcoming fights.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Trance Kuja
    HP: 55000
    Steal: Rebirth Ring, White Robe
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Preparation:  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
    ------------  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
                  *  No one is to be at a level divisible by 5.
                  *  "I suggest that you equip Auto-Potion and Auto-Regen. I also
                      recommend that you equip Auto-Haste, Auto-Life and as many
                      anti-status effects as possible. The most important ones out
                      of the bunch are Antibody, Clear Headed, and Body Temp. Turn
                      off all those useless abilities like Level Up and Ability Up
                      or anything else that isn't that great."
    
    Overview:  Tranced Kuja is NOTHING like your previous encounter with him. This
    ---------  time he doesn't do attacks that instantly end battles, or any other
               crap that Square should of put in here. This time all Kuja has going
               for him is he is fast. Almost all of his other attacks are the
               exact same as the last fight you had with him. He isn't very tough,
               and a big disappointment.
    
    Attacks:  *  Flare Stare is by far Kuja's mostly deadly attack. It does the
    --------     character's level times 35. So, if you had a character at 45 it
                 would do 45 * 35 which is 1575 damage. This may seem like a lot,
                 but that's why you have Dagger and Auto-Potion equipped! Some
                 characters should have Auto-Regen, also. This attack hurts every-
                 one, and it is by far one of the most annoying attacks on disc
                 three. (Unless you fought Ozma, then any of his attacks take dibs
                 over Flare Stare.)
    
              *  Flare is his second deadly attack. It seems that Kuja has learned
                 from the black mages that black magic rocks. Flare will do around
                 1500 damage to one character. It is more then feasible if you
                 have a good healer at hand. Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen will suck it
                 right up, also. Overall, this is a deadly attack.
    
              *  Holy does holy damage on a target. Well, not really. You will find
                 it doing around 1200 damage. That is not bad, considering the
                 above two attacks make this attack look like regular Kuja. This
                 attack is not, in my opinion.
    
              *  Reflect just puts up Reflect on him. You can counter it by putting
                 Reflect on someone in your party. Then have them bounce magic on
                 that person and it will hit Kuja. Reflect really digs Kuja's
                 grave, as now he cannot heal himself.
    
              *  Lastly, Kuja has Curaga. This will do a pathetic 2400 damage
                 healed every turn. To make him stop casting Curaga, because he
                 will keep doing it, cast Reflect on him. He isn't smart enough to
                 bounce Curaga off of you, either, so don't worry about that.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: If you look at the items you can steal, you should see that it is
             nothing at all. So, have him attack. He can either use Thievery or
             just plain out attack physically. Either one will do. Just do the one
             that does the most damage.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's main duty is to cast Shock over and over and over. If he has
             better Sword Arts, then please use it. If he does more damage with
             regular attacks, then of course you would use those. Don't use Sword
             Magic, however. It is a waste of MP.
    
      Freya: If you have been killing dragons throughout this entire game, which
             you should have done, then have Freya use Dragon's Crest. This will do
             an immense number of damage, depending on how many dragons you have
             killed. Also, if Freya runs out of MP then have her use "High Jump."
             This should do a lot of damage, also.
    
       Eiko: Eiko is "not yet an attacker, not yet a healer." Her main focus in
             this battle is to cast Holy on Kuja. This will do a ton of damage on
             him, so don't worry about that. You just have to worry when Kuja casts
             Reflect on himself. Then you will want to cast Reflect on yourself
             then bounce Holy at him. Also, Eiko is the main healer of this battle.
             She is to heal with Curaga ever so often.
    
       Vivi: Flare. Or. Better.
    
     Dagger: Same. As. Eiko.
    
    Amarant: Throw.

    Boss Name: Necron (Final Boss)
    HP: 55000
    Steal: Elixir, Elixir
    Party: Zidane, Steiner, Freya, Eiko
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    
    Preparation:  *  Zidane should have good physical attacks.
    ------------  *  Steiner should have Shock.
                  *  Freya should have Dragon's Crest.
                  *  Eiko should have Curaga and Silence.
                  *  Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen is a must. Auto-Haste and Auto-Life are
                     recommended.
                  *  No one is to be at a level divisible by 5.
                  *  "I suggest that you equip Auto-Potion and Auto-Regen. I also
                      recommend that you equip Auto-Haste, Auto-Life and as many
                      anti-status effects as possible. The most important ones out
                      of the bunch are Antibody, Clear Headed, and Body Temp. Turn
                      off all those useless abilities like Level Up and Ability Up
                      or anything else that isn't that great."
    
    Overview:  Necron is the final boss of the game! He is actually pretty diffi-
    ---------  cult, but still doesn't compare to any of the great optional bosses
               that Final Fantasy IX has to offer. Necron's best attack is Grand
               Cross, which will do random status effects on everyone. This is com-
               pletely random. Sometimes you might get all the bad ones, sometimes
               the good ones, and sometimes nothing at all! It really is about the
               roll of the dice. Anyway, Necron is really fast and he will most
               likely follow up Grand Cross with Neutron Ring. This will do 2000
               damage to the party and completely sucks. He will do these attacks
               at the beginning of battle, so it is almost unavoidable. Also,
               Necron has an arsenal of regular attacks along with stuff that will
               make the damage on him look funny. The worst part, however, is the
               Grand Cross/Neutron Ring spell. Once you get passed that, this fight
               is a lot easier. Focus on attack power and hold nothing back. If you
               have a Dark Matter or two do not hesitate to throw it at Necron for
               an easy 9999 damage. This is the final boss in the game so don't
               hold back one bit. Elixir's should be used, and everything that you
               have should be thrown. Overall this is one great fight.
    
    Attacks:  *  Grand Cross is by far the most deadly attack in the game. It also
    --------     holds the title as the most random. It will do various status eff-
                 ects on all characters. Sometimes you get the not-so-bad status
                 effects, sometimes you get the good ones, and sometimes you don't
                 get any status effects at all! This is one mean attack, but you
                 will only see him use this once at the beginning of the fight. You
                 should be able to dispose of him before he has the chance to use
                 it again.
    
              *  Neutron Ring is the second most deadly attack in this game, not
                 counting optional boss attacks of course. It will do around 2000
                 damage to all characters. He uses this right after he uses Grand
                 Cross, so you will be very weak after he does both of those
                 spells! This is one very deadly attack that might kill all the
                 magicians of your party and severely weaken the fighters. It's one
                 attack that kills all.
    
              *  Blue Shockwave is an attack that will reduce one characters HP to
                 1. This really is not that bad, considering we have had worse done
                 to us over the course of this game. I remember when Antlion was
                 using an attack that gave the whole party 1 HP! Blue Shockwave is
                 still a deadly attack that should not be laughed at, but I still
                 think it is the third most deadly attack Necron has to offer.
    
              *  Meteor does random damage, but in this fight it usually goes to-
                 wards the higher side of things. You might find this destroying
                 your party and then barely scratching it. In the final battle it
                 usually doesn't do 50 damage to all characters, or anything. This
                 attack is not that bad, overall.
    
              *  Flare is one of the best attacks you will see in this fight. It
                 will do around 1500 damage to one character. This is nothing to
                 fear and Auto-Potion/Auto-Regen can heal it right back up. It is
                 still a powerful attack, but nothing considering what they could
                 of done. Which brings me to my next sentence... Why didn't they
                 change "Flare" to "Flare Stare." It would have made a lot more
                 sense, this being the final boss and all. I just don't get it. Re-
                 flect will knock this one right back at Necron.
    
              *  Protect and Shell are attacks that he will cast at the beginning
                 of the fight. From that point further you won't do as much damage
                 to him. This is pretty bad, but not unbearable.
    
              *  Firaga, Blizzaga, and Thundaga are attacks that you will want to
                 see all throughout this fight. They don't do as much damage as the
                 other attacks! Still, they do a copious amount of damage. Of
                 course, these are elemental type damages, and you might get healed
                 if you have the proper equipment on. You might find these attacks
                 healing you every turn if you got all your equipment in order.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
    
     Zidane: Stealing is not an option because Necron doesn't have anything good to
             steal. Zidane should either be physically attacking or using Thievery.
             Whichever one is better. If you have been stealing "regularly"
             throughout the entire game it should do around 3000 damage, which is
             not bad. You have to consider Shell and Protect when you physically
             attack Necron. Thievery will ALWAYS do the listed amount of damage.
             So, play with both attacks and see which one does more damage. Also,
             you might want Zidane to be the Dark Matter thrower.
    
    Steiner: Steiner's main job in this fight is to cast Shock, or anything better
             he might have up his sleeve. Climhazzard, Stock Break, and Minus
             Strike are just to name a few of the other ones. If you find yourself
             low on HP with Steiner, you have the option to use Minus Strike or
             Darkside. Minus Strike will do Steiner's maximum HP minus his current
             HP, while Darkside will restore nearly all of his HP in a physical
             attack on Necron. You decide which one is better in the situation. I
             would use Minus Strike at the end of the fight and Darkside at the
             beginning of the fights.
    
      Freya: Freya's role in this battle is Dragon's Crest. This attack is decided
             by how many dragons you have killed thus far in the game. It is a
             really good attack that should do around 2500 damage at least. If she
             runs out of MP then you can give her an Ether or Elixir. Then she can
             proceed to using Dragon's Crest. Optionally, you can have her use the
             High Jump ability and see if it does more damage to Necron. In some
             cases it will, and in some it won't.
    
       Eiko: Eiko's duty in this fight is simple. She is to heal the whole party
             throughout the fight and NEVER ATTACK. This is because Necron will
             probably get an attack in before Eiko can attack and thus cause havoc.
             You have to keep Eiko on hold until you need her. When Grand Cross and
             Neutron Ring roll around she will be almost invaluable with her Dispel
             and Esuna abilities. Curaga is also pretty awesome. If you keep track
             of Necron's HP, you might want Eiko to finish him off with a Holy or
             something to end the fight.
    
       Vivi: Strongest magic please.
    
     Dagger: See: Eiko.
    
    Amarant: Amarant is to throw everything you have. The chairs, the sofa, every-
             thing he can get his greedy hands on.
    
      Quina: Only use s/he if you have Frog Drop and it does a decent amount of
             damage.

    Boss Name: Tantarian (Disc 2)
    HP: 20000
    Steal: Silver Fork, Demon's Mail, Elixir, Ether
    Party: Zidane (16), Vivi (16), Freya (16), Steiner (20)
    Difficulty: Very Hard
    
    Please read this whole strategy before fighting! You can fight the Tantarian at
    Disc Two and Three. This strategy will cover disc two. Before we start, I would
    like to say that fighting him in disc two is a MAJOR MISTAKE UNLESS YOU HAVE THE
    PROPER EQUIPMENT. You should at least have Bio with Vivi, and everyone has to
    have Auto-Potion. If you don't have Bio, then substitute one of the 'ra's for
    it. Why do you need Auto-Potion? When Tantarian attacks, he usually does Paper
    Storm. This is a horrible attack that will do around 500 damage to everyone in
    the party! So if you wanted to heal you would have to blow all your turns. So,
    Auto-Potion is a must for this fight. He also has Edge. This is a good attack
    because it will only hit one character for 800 damage. If Steiner gets hit with
    this then use Minus Strike on him for great damage. Okay, now before we continue
    Tantarian has two forms: Book Form and Cute Form. In Book Form he wreaks havoc
    on the party with all of his attacks. He also wastes turns looking for his cute
    form. He will keep going to pages until he finds it. You have to inflict a lot
    of HP off of him before he finds cute form. You will do little damage to him in
    this form, so just keep attacking him. When he changes to cute form, DO NOT
    PHYSICALLY ATTACK HIM! He will close his book and go back to Book Form again!
    However, you can attack him with magic. Have Vivi use his best spell and Steiner
    use Magic Sword. Freya should use Lancer and Zidane should steal and heal the
    party. This is at Cute Form, however. At Book Form, have everyone hack away with
    Magic and Physical attacks to get him to book form. Zidane should attack and
    steal. Vivi should use his best magic. Steiner should use Magic Sword/Attack.
    Lastly, Freya should heal and attack. Don't worry if you run low on magic, just
    use ethers. This battle should take a very long time, so try to get here as fast
    as possible for your time limit. I hope that you have a lot of Hi-Potions,
    Potions, and Phoenix Downs, or you will fall. Chemist on Freya is also needed so
    she can be a better healer.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Catoblepas (Treno Equipment Shop Monster -- Disc Three)
    HP: 4000
    Steal: N/A
    Party: Zidane (28)
    Difficulty: Semi-Hard
    Reward: 15,000 Gil
    
    You will be fighting Catoblepas as a regular enemy soon in the game, so I think
    that you should be able to defeat him. The tough part is he has Devil's Kiss,
    which will freeze you every time. You have to equip the ability called Body Temp
    before the battle starts. If you don't, more then likely his first attack will
    be Devil's Kiss. Catoblepas doesn't have more then that, though. He has
    Thundara, which is a semi-deadly attack. It does around 500 damage to you. This
    is why I told you to equip Auto-Potion; you can quickly heal this in a matter of
    seconds. Catoblepas also has Earthquake. This is an earth-based attack that does
    around 300 damage each time. If you don't have Auto-Potion, buy a Feather Boot
    add on. This absorbs earth damage. Catoblepas uses Earthquake around 50% of the
    time so he will you! Absorb = Heal. Auto-Potion and Feather Boots make this
    fight pathetically easy. Catoblepas didn't stand a chance against me, besides
    Devil's Kiss. Just hack away with attacks on him, you should be doing around
    1,000 damage each time. This makes the battle pathetically easy as Catoblepas
    only has 4,000 HP. It's a very easy 15,000 Gil, if you ask me.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boss Name: Tantarian (Disc 3)
    HP: 20000
    Steal: Elixir, Silver Fork
    Party: Zidane (28), Vivi (28), Freya (18), Amarant (27)
    Difficulty: Semi-Medium
    
    Please read this whole strategy before fighting! You can fight the Tantarian at
    Disc Two and Three. This strategy will cover disc three. Fighting Tantarian in
    disc three is where you are supposed to fight him. I will cover all the aspects
    of him and this fight, but let us take a look at preparation first.
    
    Preparation:  * All characters must be at recommended levels.
    ------------  * Zidane must have stolen normally throughout the entire game.
                    This doesn't mean you went bonkers when stealing; it just means
                    you stole items occasionally. This is for Thievery.
                  * Everyone must have Auto-Potion equipped, and you must have a
                    strong supply of Hi-Potions.
                  * Amarant must be in the process of learning Chakra. If he isn't,
                    then equip the Cat's Claw.
                  * Vivi must have an Oak Staff to cast Bio. (Substitution: 'ra's)
                  * Everyone must have the best equipment they can get this far in
                    the game. This is so they survive attacks.
                  * Freya should know, or have her learn, the chemist ability.
    
    Overview:  Tantarian has two forms: Book Form and Cute Form. In Book Form,
    ---------  which is the form that you will start the battle with, Tantarian
               will almost be unmatched in all attacks. You will only do around 50
               damage to him per attack. It is almost like being Mini'd.
               Tantarian will use two attacks in this form: Edge and Paper Storm.
               You will be happy when he does Edge on you; it will do around 600
               damage to one character. When he does Paper Storm, however, it will
               do 400 damage to the whole party! This is why it is imperative that
               everyone knows Auto-Potion and you have 40-50 Hi-Potions in stock.
               This will effectively counter both attacks. Now, besides this, Tan-
               tarian will look for his cute form. He will waste turns sometimes
               and try to find Cute Form in his book. He won't find it until you
               have inflicted enough damage on him. When he turns to Cute Form, DO
               NOT PHYSICALLY ATTACK HIM! He will close his book and you will be
               back to Book Form. All you can do is use magic here. Tantarian will
               use Poison in this stage only. After you have inflicted enough
               damage on him again, he will return to Book Form. This is a pattern
               which you must go through a couple times before he is defeated.
    
    Attacks:  Book Form
    --------  ---------
               * Edge is a physical attack that he does normally in Book Form. It
                 will do around 600 damage to one character. This can easily be
                 countered with Auto-Potion or Freya healing.
               * Paper Storm is a magic attack that he does in Book Form. It will
                 do around 400 damage to every character. Auto-Potion can comple-
                 letely counter this attack. However, you will have to run out of
                 Hi-Potions some day...
               * This is not an attack, but he normally looks for Cute Form in
                 his book. This doesn't do any damage to you, and actually gives
                 you a turn to attack more often. Overall, you want to see this.
    
              Cute Form
              ---------
               * Poison is the only attack that he will use in Cute Form. It will
                 inflict damage and the Poison Status on a character. You will
                 need a character to throw an Antidote to counter this.
    
    Character Duties:
    -----------------
     Zidane: Zidane is going to be the "star" of your fight. He is the all star
             in your team. With his Thievery Skill, he will be able to inflict
             around 750 damage on Tantarian EVEN WHEN HE IS IN BOOK FORM! This
             is absolutely amazing and a real lifesaver. The damage that is done
             with Thievery is calculated with this formula: Number of items
             stolen in game * Half of your current speed. This means that if you
             stole 50 times in the game and had 20 speed, you would do 500
             damage. The reason for this is because 50 * 20/2 = 500. Your
             Thievery skill will vary with your current statistics. This is why
             it is ABSOLUTELY VITAL that you stole normally in the game. Fifty
             times might seem like a lot, but it really isn't. You have gone
             through three discs, and you probably stole a lot in disc one.
             Your current speed should be around 24, so you will be inflicting a
             lot of damage on Tantarian. This is almost a bug in the game,
             because you should only be able to inflict around 50 damage on
             Tantarian every turn. With this, you will be able to do around 750
             damage every turn! When you run low on MP, have Amarant use the
             Chakra skill on you (See: Amarant's Duty). This is basically all
             Zidane is going to do in this fight.
    
    Amarant: Amarant should have the Chakra ability equipped. This will be used
             to heal Zidane's MP during this battle. Amarant's duty is to do
             this, and to heal the party. This is his main role. He also can phy-
             sically attack if he has an open turn. However, you might want to
             just put him on standby with triangle.
    
       Vivi: Vivi is to also heal. This is only in Book Form, however. In Cute
             Form, he is to use Bio until the cows come home. This will to a ton
             of damage on Tantarian. It makes the fight go by a lot quicker once
             Tantarian goes into Cute Form. Besides this, if Vivi has an open
             slot in Book Form, you can have him defend, or waste MP by using
             Magic on him.
    
      Freya: Freya is also a full time healer in this battle. However, when an
             open turn in Book Form arrives, you can have her use Jump or Lancer.
             In Cute Form, she is to abuse Lancer until her MP runs out. Then
             Amarant is to use Chakra to heal her MP right back up.

    Location: Alexandria Castle
    When?: Disc Two - Only at Castle
    Who?: Steiner
    How?: This is one of the best places in the entire game to level up Steiner.
          Why? Because if you stand somewhere, Alexandrian Soldiers will continue
          to run up to you and attack you, making it easy to fight. Alexandrian
          Soldiers are really easy to defeat. Steiner can take them out in one hit
          with his Blood Sword. He will also get HP when he hits them, making it so
          that you cannot lose. Have Marcus kill himself, since we won't have him
          for much longer. Have Steiner stand in one position and the Alexandrian
          Soldiers run up and attack.
    
          Alexandrian Soldiers also give GREAT experience! No doubt that Steiner is
          a lot of levels behind, so use this chance to fly up levels! I advise
          that you go to at least level 20. This will get Steiner around 3-4 levels
          passed everyone else, but it will be worth it. Getting 700 experience per
          fight is amazing! Try to equip something with counter to make the levels
          go up even faster.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Location: Oeilvert
    When?: Disc Three - All Game
    Who?: Everyone
    How?: "Make sure all four party members have the Jelly ability on before you
           begin, as the Epitaph's only attack is Petrify. (Have Zidane attempt to
           steal; you'll often steal a Phoenix Down that makes this method much
           easier.) You can take advantage of the Epitaph's Mirror spell, which
           creates a clone of one of your characters, by letting it clone up to
           three of your party members. Now if the Epitaph clones a character
           currently in your party, that character will die. Don't worry about the
           dead character, though, just concentrate on attacking the clone - not
           the Epitaph itself - until you've killed it. Next, if Zidane is still
           alive, use steal again. If he was killed by the clone, however, use the
           next weakest attack you have to hit the Epitaph and make it cast Mirror
           again. After the third clone has been killed, revive any dead
           characters, then kill the Epitaph once and for all. Each clone you kill
           contributes up to a total of 7,434 EXP per person. This method also
           helps build up the strength of Zidane's Thievery skill with every
           successful steal. We recommend spending quite some time here to build up
           levels easily."

    Location: Pandemonium
    When?: Disc Three - Only at castle
    Who?: Everyone
    How?: In the room with all the pins and lights, flip the switch so the 30
           second timer goes up. Now just hit a blue light and you will get into a
           battle. It really is that simple. Most of the enemies here are very
           tough, also, so you will get awesome experience.
