                          I. About This Guide | (00001)
===============================================================================
                              
I would like to say, Welcome! To my first ever Walkthrough Guide. I've always 
wanted to make a Walkthrough to help out gamers such as myself but I never got 
around to it. Well finally I got some free time on my hands and started writing
a walkthrough. And what better game to write one for then my must beloved video
games of all time, Final Fantasy 9? This is possibly one of the first RPGs I 
picked up. As soon as I saw the opening FMV I was instantly hooked on this 
truly epic title. This game offers everything a gamer would want in an RPG; A 
spectacular storyline, stellar music (by none other then Nobuo Uematsu), 
interesting characters, classic turn based battle system, beautiful graphics 
and FMVs, everything!   

I began writing this guide on May 25th, 2006. You may be wondering why it's
taken me so long to finish it. Well for some reason in the middle of summer I
stopped working on it. I don't remember why I didn't finish it. I picked it
back up on February 25th, 2007 in hopes of finally finishing this guide.

I really hope this Guide can help you. I wrote this guide with a single goal in
mind and thats to help out all those people who need help. Remember to have 
fun. This game can be very challenging but with this guide you will be able to 
find the clichéd light at the end of the tunnel.

Also I will be adding more into this guide like Equipment Lists, Item Lists,
etc. Though that won't be for a little while, but they will be added no doubt.
So look forward to that!

===============================================================================
                         II. Using This Guide | (00002)              
===============================================================================

I've built this guide so it can be navigated through as easily and effeciently
as possible. If your looking for certain information about a dungeon or a 
certain part of the game just go to the Index located at the top of the guide.
I've also implemented a system with the Ctrl+F function so you can find what
your looking for faster. Just copy the 5 digit number that's next to a section
in the index, press Ctrl+F on your keyboard, paste the number in, and press
search. Ctrl+F will take you right to the section you want.

At the beggining of a section where there will be a merchant of some kind I've
added what items you can purchase from the seller along with how much the item
is. They can be found on the left side at the beggining of each section.

There are a number of treasures you can find in each town and dungeon in this
game. So at the end of each section I've added a checklist of sorts so you can
go over itand make sure you've found everything in a particular area.

I hope all the features I've added in this guide will help you, the reader.

game itself and how the game is played. Just to get this out of the way; 
whenver your on the field or in a village and a ? or ! in a speech bubble 
appears over your head. When you see that press the X button and you will with 
find an item or gather some information.

                          II. Battle System | (00004)
===============================================================================

Battles are triggered randomly when your walking in the world map or in certain
areas. The battle system is your basic/classic Final Fantasy turn based system.
When you enter a battle you usually have a choice of four options displayed in 
a box on the bottom left side and next to it it shows the characters names, 
HP/MP, ATB Gauges & below the ATB gauge is the Trance Gauge. An ATB (Active 
Time Battle) gauge shows a characters turn during battle & a Trance Gauge shows
a characters trance progress. More on Trances in the Trance section of the 
Battle System guide. There are two different ATB modes; Active & Wait. If your 
ATB gauge is set to Active time never stops in a battle until its finished. 
Characters don't take turns when your in Active mode, rather whenever a 
character/enemies turn is up they will attack whether or not your ready. Active
mode is only recommended for veteran RPG gamers. Now when your ATB gauge is set
to Wait time stops between the parties and enemies moves. Meaning that you will
have to time to choose which moves you want to use without having to worry 
about being attacked. Wait mode is recomended more for strategical battlers 
and RPG begginers.  

    +---Command---+                   --Name----------HP---MP---ATB------
    | Attack      |                    Zidane        120  36   =========
    | Steal       |                    Cinna          80  32   =========
    | Skill       |                    Marcus         90  22   ========= 
    | Item        |                    Blank         105  24   =========
    +-------------+                    

When you choose the attack command the character executes a regular physical 
attack with his/her weapon. Steal is a technique that only Zidane (and members 
of Tantalus) have. It allows the user to steal an item the enemy is holding. 
Skill opens up a list of techniques the user can execute onto its enemy or 
party member(s). Black Magic, a technique thats only available to Vivi, allows 
him to execute a Black Magic Spell unto his enemy. White Magic, a technique 
available to both Garnet & Eiko, allows its user to cast a White Magic spell 
which (except for Holy) either heals the party or supports it by increasing 
stats or some other attribute. When Vivi & Steiner are in a party together a 
new technique is open for Steiner called Sword Magic. When sword magic is used 
Vivi casts a Black Magic spell on Steiners sword and then Steiner charges at 
his enemy and inflicts elemental damage (depending on which spell Vivi cast on 
Steiners sword.) Item allows the character to use an item from the bag.

The way a character learns new spells is dependent on what equipment the 
character is wearing. What abilities a weapon/a piece of gear has is displayed 
in the Item Description, next to the ability list it shows an AP (Action 
Points) Gauge. Once that gauge fills up the character learns the ability. More 
on that in the Equipment section.

Another thing. You can adjust your characters to either be in the front row of 
the battle or the back row by going to your menu(Triangle). Characters with 
high HP, defense, and who use mostly physical attack should be in the front row
because if a character is in the back row they're physical attacks do 50% less 
damage then it normally would, although the back row also subtracts 50% enemies
physical attacks, the back row is more suited for characters with low HP and 
defense. Note that magical attacks are not affected either way if a character 
is in the front or back row. Zidane, Steiner & Amarant should always be in the 
front row. Garnet, Vivi, & Eiko should always be in the back row. Freya & Quina
you can alternate between front row and back row seeing as they're both good at
physical and magical attacks.

             This is how a usual party formation should look like.             

===============================================================================
                           a. Status Effects | (00005)
===============================================================================

When in battle certain actions can cause effects on your status than will 
effect certain aspects of your character. Status effects can do anything from 
lower your charcters HP to immobilizing them. Although not all status effects 
are bad, some are good, but the majority of them can really cripple the 
effectiveness on your party. I outlined all the status effects in this table, 
along with the status' name & effect.

     --Status-------Effect-----------------------------------------------      
                |
     Auto-Life  | The character revives automatically once during battle     
                |
     Berserk    | Strength increases but character can only attack       
                |   
     Confuse    | Lose of a characters control

                |

                |
     Heat       | KO's the character if it does any action
                |
     KO         | Character is dead and can no longer act in the battle
                |
     Mini       | Character shrinks, lowering their attack & defense
                |
     Petrify    | Character turns to stone and cannot take action
                |
     Poison     | Characters HP gradually decreases
                |
     Protect    | Characters defense is raised
                |
     Reflect    | Magic attacks bounce back to caster

                |
     Trouble    | When attacked, it also effects surrounding members
                |
     Vanish     | Can't be hurt physically, must be hit with magic       
                |
     Venom      | No EXP & AP earned after battle & character can't move.
                |
     Virus      | No EXP & AP earned after battle
                |
     Zombie     | Healing items & skills hurt the character
     --------------------------------------------------------------------    
Certain items and white magic can cure most of these ailments. For more info on
cures check the item list or the white magic list. Also a small reminder, a 
quick rest at a village Inn will heal any status effects and returns your HP & 
MP back to full.

===============================================================================
                            b. Trance Guide | 00006)
===============================================================================

Now a trance is a special and often very powerful technique. When a characters 
Trance Gauge is full the character undergoes a trance and (for most) gain an 
extra ability. Zidanes Skill is replaced with Dyne, which open up a whole new 
list of skills. Garnets Summon is replaced with Eidolon, which when used, an 
Eidolon continues toattack until another Eidolon is summoned. Vivis Blk Mgc is 
replaced with Dbl Blk, allowing him to cast two Black Magic spells instead of 
one. Steiners trance doesn't give him an ability, instead his physical attack 
power is greatly increased. Freya also doesn't get an ability, rather when she 
Jumps she stays up there for a longer period and throws down hundreds of spears
when her turn comes again. Eikos Wht Mgc is replaced with Dbl Wht, which allows
her to cast two white magic spells instead of one. Amarants Flare is replaced 
with Elan which gives him the ability to cast his spells on one enemy/character
or everyone in your party/all the enemies. And Quinas Eat is replaced with 
Cook, which allows Quina to eat enemies with 1/4th health instead of 1/8th.

A note on trances - The ATB gauge only fills if the character is attacked by 
the enemy, not if the character is attacked by one of the party members. Also 
if your character is inflicted with Zombie while in trance or if the character 
dies, the trance is wasted and your ATB gauge goes back down to zero.

===============================================================================
                       c. Elemental Properties | (00007)
===============================================================================

Elemental properties are very easy to understand and they're basically in 
almost every RPG ever made. Using Elemental Properties to your advantage can 
give you a huge advantage because almost every enemy in the game has some sort 
of elemental weakness. But beware, enemies can also use them to their advantage
against you. There are a total of 8 Elemental Properties. Some enemies are 
non-elemental meaning that no elemental attack has a higher advtange or lower 
advantage against that enemy.

                         +--Elements--+ +--Weakness--+

===============================================================================
                                V. Story (00008)
===============================================================================

In the world of Gaia, everyone seems to be in a continuing spiral of chaos. 
With four seperate and major nations continously fighting to gain power, it 
seems peace can never be brought back unto the land. 

Regent Cid, the governing king of Lindblum, orders a Band of Thieves, known as 
Tantalus, to disguise themselves as an acting troupe and go and kidnap 
Alexandrias Princess Garnet. In a surprising twist Princess Garnet and her 
personal body guard join Cid as they try and push back the evils of greed and 
power in order to restore peace once again. Will they ever be able to reach 
their goal and stop Queen Brahnes lust for power?

===============================================================================
                             d. Characters | (00009)
===============================================================================

Zidane Tribal               +----------------------------------------+          
Sex: Male                   |   HP/MP: High/Low                      |
Age: 16                     |   Defense/Mag Defense: Medium/Medium   |
Class: Thief                |   Strength/Magic: High/Low             |
Weapon: Daggers             |   Speed: High                          | 
                            +----------------------------------------+
Who is he?
---------------
A cool headed and sharp tongued individual, Zidane always knows the perfect 
thing to do or say in any situation. He's the main hero of our story and a 
member of the Tantalus thief crew. He seems to act like the big brother of the 
troupe and is a favorite amongst his adoptive father/boss Baku. He has no real 
memories of his past nor can he even remember who his parents are, he makes it 
his personal goal in life to find his unkown origin, as well as winning over 
Garnets heart. 

Battle Strategy
---------------
Zidane plays the role of a thief, meaning he can steal items from his opponents
which are usually invaluable. Zidane usually has considerably high HP and low 
MP which usually signifies that he excels in physical strength. While that may 
be true, Zidanes Trance ability 'Dyne' are very powerful magic techniques that 
often do tons of damage on the opponent. Zidanes Dyne technique is something 
that is invaluable to the party, making boss battles much easier. His other 
skills are often techniques that are based on trickey or more stealing moves 
that allow him to steal a mide array of items and equipment.

Garnet Til Alexandros       +----------------------------------------+
Sex: Female                 |   HP/MP: Low/High                      |
Age: 16                     |   Defense/Mag Defense: Low/High        |
Class: Summoner/White Mage  |   Strength/Magic: Low/High             |
Weapon: Staffs & Rackets    |   Speed: Medium                        |
                            +----------------------------------------+
Who is she?
---------------
Garnet (later known by a different name) is the princess of Alexandria and 
rightful heir to the throne. Her step mother is Queen Brahne. One day some 
Alexandrian castle servants found a small child Garnet that washed up near the 
palace docks. Brahne took her in as her own and raised her as the princess. At 
a young age she learned of her summoner powers, but because of the destructive 
damage they can cause, she was to afraid to use their immense power.

Battle Strategy
---------------
Garnet plays two roles, one as a summoner and the other as a white mage. As a 
summoner she can call upon powerful Eidolons to either do great damage on her 
enemies or to support her party members. As a white mage she has a wide array 
of spells that will be very useful to the party. Her white magic can cure 
members, status effects, or support one member or the whole party. Although her
physical attacks are lacking, she more then makes up for it in her magical 
prowess.

Vivi Ornitier                +----------------------------------------+ 
Sex: Male                    |   HP/MP: Low/High                      |
Age: 9                       |   Defense/Mag Defense: Low/High        |
Class: Black Mage            |   Strength/Magic: Low/High             |
Weapon: Staffs & Rods        |   Speed: Medium                        |
                             +----------------------------------------+
Who is he?
---------------
Vivi, a small and very clumsy character, meets Zidane and the rest of the gang 
in Alexandria. His existence becomes a mystery to himself and so he often likes
to question about the world around him and why we exist on Gaia today.  

Battle Strategy
---------------
Vivi is a black mage, meaning he can summon all sorts of devastating attacks 
which are usually elementally based. A usualy stay in regular for the party 
becuase his black magic is nearly always a necessity when battling against 
enemies. As the story goes on Vivis magical power grows and his magical attacks
become more and more powerful, causing more damage and more trouble for his 
opponents. His physical attack is severely low but his magical skills more then
make up for it. 

Adelbert Steiner             +----------------------------------------+
Sex: Male                    |   HP/MP: High/Low                      |
Age: 33                      |   Defense/Mag Defense: High/Low        |
Class: Knight                |   Strength/Magic: High/Low             |
Weapon: Swords               |   Speed: Low                           |
                             +----------------------------------------+
Who is he?
---------------
Steiner is the captain of Alexandrias premier Knights of Pluto. A thick headed 
man who swore to always protect the princess and never let her in harms way. He
refuses to believe that Queen Brahne is a greedy, evil person. He always 
listens to Brahne and never doubts, nor questions her motifs. It's not until 
later in the plot that Steiner sees Queen Brahne for who she really is.

Battle Strategy
---------------
Steiners is a man who uses his brute strength to quickly defeat his foes. He 
excels in physical strength but lacks greatly in magical power. But, if Steiner
and Vivi are in the party together a new ability is unlocked for Steiner, and 
that ability is Sword Magic. Vivi will cast an elemental magic on Steiners 
sword and then Steiner will damage the enemy with his sword, inflicting both 
physical and magical damage. Steiner has a great amount of HP but pretty low 
MP. His defense is very good because of his thick and heavy armor, so always 
place Steiner in the front row of battle.

Freya Crescent               +----------------------------------------+
Sex: Female                  |   HP/MP: Medium/Medium                 |
Age: 21                      |   Defense/Mag Defense: Medium/Medium   |
Class: Dragon Knight         |   Strength/Magic: Medium/Medium        | 
Weapon: Spears               |   Speed: Medium                        |
                             +----------------------------------------+
Who is she?
---------------
Freya is a Dragon Knight, one of the last of her kind. Her and Zidane go way 
back and are long time friends. Distraught with her lover disappearing a few 
years back she decides to head out into the world and search for him. 

Battle Strategy
---------------
One reason why its great that Freya is a dragon knight is because in recent 
Final Fantasy games long-time fans we're dissapointed that the dragon knight 
class was left out. Well it makes a grand return in Freya. Shes a well rounded 
character who excels in both physical strength and her dragon knight skills. 
Her dragon knight skills are not only powerful but some can steal HP/MP from 
the enemy and transfer it to Freyas HP/MP. Her jump command makes her jump high
above the clouds, where she waits a few turns then drops down and plummets the
enemy with her spear. Her trance attack modifys her jump attack where she stays
in the sky for longer and then after a few turns, she rains down hundreds of 
spears unto the enemy causing tremendous damage.

Quina Quen                   +----------------------------------------+     
Sex: Unknown                 |   HP/MP: Medium/High                   |
Age: Unknown                 |   Defense/Mag Defense: Low/Medium      |
Class: Blue Mage             |   Strength/Magic: High/Medium          |
Weapon: Forks                |   Speed: Low                           |
                             +----------------------------------------+
Who is s/he?
---------------
Quina is of the Qu race. A very peculiar race where most of the time, you can't
tell what sex they are. Quina loves eating, in fact, the only reason s/he joins
Zidanes crew is because s/he wants to taste all the delicious foods in the 
world instead of the usual frogs that live in the swamp near his/her Marsh.

Battle Strategy
---------------
Quina, like most Qus, is robust and glutinous in appearance but you should 
never judge a book by its cover. While his/her weapon is somewhat odd it can do
a good number of damage on an opponent. But his/her real abilities lie is 
his/her Blue Magic. The Blue Magic class, like the Dragon Knight class, is 
another fan favorite class from Final Fantasy past. With his/her magic she can 
eat enemies with her eat command and if she succeeds in eating the enemy she 
can learn one of their techniques. Eat can only copy one of the enemies 
techniques if the enemies HP is below 1/8th, but when Quina goes into trance 
mode his/her Eat command changes to Cook, which changes succession rate from 
1/8th to 1/4th. For a complete list of Blue Magic spells Quina can recieve, 
refer to the Blue Magic List in this guide.

Amarant Coral                +----------------------------------------+  
Sex: Male                    |   HP/MP: High/Medium                   |
Age: 26                      |   Defense/Mag Defense: Medium/Medium   |
Class: Ninja                 |   Strength/Magic: High/Medium          |
Weapon: Claws & Knuckles     |   Speed: High                          |
                             +----------------------------------------+
Who is he?
---------------
Amarants rough exterior and tough guy demeanor makes him look like a thug, but 
really hes a pretty nice guy. Years ago Zidane played a trick on him, but not 
intentionally, and after all these years Amarant has held a grudge on Zidane. 
After everything was setlled Amarant joins the party but the reason he joined 
was because he wants to find out what makes Zidane tick.

Battle Strategy
---------------
A pretty well rounded character. He has physical strength, good magic and 
helpful skills. He can throw items (mainly weapons and pinwheels) with his 
throw command and cause good damage on the enemy based on the attack of the 
weapon he throws. His Flare command has many good talents; anything from 
healing party members HP/MP or street fighter type attack skills. While in 
trance his Flare becomes Elan, which allows him to cast a spell on one 
enemy/party member, or all four enemies/party members. Also while in trance 
his attack is slightly raised. A good character to put on the front lines 
because of his high HP and good defense.

Eiko Carol                   +----------------------------------------+
Sex: Female                  |   HP/MP: Low/High                      |
Age: 6                       |   Defense/Mag Defense: Low/High        |
Class: Summoner/White Mage   |   Strength/Magic: Low/High             |
Weapon: Flutes & Rackets     |   Speed: Medium                        |
                             +----------------------------------------+
Who is she?
---------------
Eiko is a small and cute girl from a decrepit village known as Madain Sari. 
She is a Summoner and the last known survivor from her tribe. She's terribly 
afraid of being alone and the feeling that comes with it. Shes the only human 
who lives in her village and everyother living being in the town are cute 
moogles. When she joins the party she falls in love with Zidane, but she 
realizes he's in love with Garnet and the result is an awkward love triangle 
with Eiko seeing Garnet as her eternal love rival.

Battle Strategy
---------------
She's more of a White Mage then a Summoner because most of her Eidolons either 
heal the party or support the party. Her White Magic list is a bit different 
from Garnets and is a slightly bigger list. She's not to useful in the battle 
for fighting but if you need a healer in your party, Eiko will probably be your
best choice. Her White Magic is very useful with spells like Haste that speeds 
up a players ATB Gauge or Might, which raises a players attack power. She won't
be to good in damaging enemies until she learns her ultimate White Magic attack
Holy, which is the only White Magic attack in the whole game that causes 
damage, and alot of it.

After the stunning FMV featuring the beautiful Princess Garnet you gain control
of Zidane. Location? No where but aboard Tantalus' Theather Ship, Prima Vista. 
You see Zidane holding a candle but before lighting the lamp in the middle of 
the room walk up more into a small storage den. There you will find 47 Gil & a 
Potion. Go back and light the candle. Someone calls out to you and you get to 
name Zidanes character (default of course, is Zidane). Once everyone comes out 
of the room on the right a strange man in a dragon mask attacks.

   O=======================================================================O

After the fighting the Tantalus crew commences a meeting where a cutscene 
occurs. During the meeting Baku will ask Zidane two questions. If you choose 
the first one you'll get some funny banter from Baku, if you press it 64 times 
you'll get a funny cutscene where Ruby, another Tantalus crew member, barges 
into the meeting. To proceed choose the second option Baku offers. Afterwards 
another beautiful FMV occurs.

                            II. Alexandria | (10002)
===============================================================================

+------------------------+ After the FMV you gain control of a little kid. His
| Item Shop ============ | name is a mystery at this point, so lets just call
+------------------------+ him little kid for now. To your left there is a
| Potion.............50  | potion and up a little from that point you will find
| Phoenix Down.......150 | another potion. At the house on the right you will
| Antidote...........50  | find 9 Gil under the bed & a potion to the right of
| Eye Drops..........50  | the ladder, then walk up the ladder and you will
| Tent...............800 | find a Sahagin Card (more on the card game in the
+------------------------+ Mini Games section). Walk out of the house and walk 
downwards. You'll be in a circular part of town with a statue in the middle. To
the southwest you will find a Sahagin Card, a little north of there you will 
find a Zombie Card, then walk a little east and you will find a potion. Go back
to the beggining. Walk a bit then some rat kid bumps into you, he scowls then 
runs away. Keep walking until you reach another section of the town. Wak down 
near the grassy knoll and you will find 33 Gil and west of that is a Goblin 
Card. Theres a bar in the center of this area, walk in and to the left you will
find a Flan Card & 27 Gil. Walk out of the bar and continue west until you 
reach another section of the town. There is nothing here except a small item 
shop, feel free to walk in and buy some potions if you'd like. The Item Shop 
List is up above. After you exit the Item Shop proceed north into another 
section of Alexandria.

Now you will be in the Town Square of Alexandria. First pick up a Phoenix 
Pinion to the North, left of where the two soldiers are standing guard at the 
gates of the castle. Once thats out of the way proceed into the ticket booth in
the dead center of the Town Square. Talk to the man and show him your ticket to
the big show. You'll find out that the ticket the kid had was a fake, the man 
will feel bad for you and he gives you three cards; Goblin Card, Fang Card, & a
Skeleton Card. Exit the tent and walk to the hotel thats located behind the 
three girls jumping rope and you will see a funny scene. Once you exit the 
hotel you can play jump rope with the little girls if you'd like, for more info
on the jump rope mini game and what prizes you can win refer to the mini games 
section. After you had your fill of jump rope proceed west into the alleyway. 
You'll witness a short cut scene of him being his clumsy self. Afterwards the 
mean Rat Kid you met earlier runs into the alleyway and steals the ladder, he 
asks you if you want to become his slave, answer yes. Once you say yes a 
strange man walks into the alley way, walk up to him and try to talk to him. If
he runs away exit the alleyway the way the Rat Kid exited then enter back in. 
This time if you talk to him he won't run away. You find out that his name is 
Alleyway Jack. He can teach you how to play the Tetra Master card game. If you 
want to learn about this fun mini game some more you can talk to Alleyway Jack 
and ask him to teach you, or you can refer to my Mini Games section for more 
info on the Tetra Master card game. Afterwards exit the Alleyway and follow Rat
Kid.

Once you get into a slummish part of town walk into the house on the left and 
you can find some Eyedrops in the back. Exit out and then walk down near the 
Steeple. Once you see the little girl leave the house you just stole from you 
can go back in and up to stairs to mug the little girls savings of 3 Gil. Now 
exit the house and before going into the steeple, talk to the little kid left 
of the steeple. He will mention that his cat is missing, he asks that if you 
see his cat if you can tell him you saw the cat, say yes. Then go all the way 
back to the beggining. You should find his cat near the statue, click on the 
cat and the kid comes running and he thanks you for finding the cat then he 
leaves. Go all the way back to the steeple and talk to the kid. He rewards you 
with a Bomb Card. After that exciting adventure walk into the steeple. There 
the Rat Kid tells you to walk up the ladder, try to walk up and a cute moogle 
drops on your head. Then another cute moogle named Stiltzkin draped in a green 
cape walks in. He talks to the moogle then leaves. Before going up the ladder 
you can find a Tent to the left of the entrance to the steeple and a potion to 
the right of the entrance. Talk to the moogle and ask him about Mognet. Mognet 
is a pretty big sidequest you can choose to do or not to do. Either way he 
gives you a letter to give to a moogle named Monty. For more info on the Mognet
side quest refer to the Sidequest section of the guide. Moogles also serve 
another purpose in the game. They're the ones you depend on to save your 
progress in the game. 

Once your done saving proceed up the ladder of the steeple. Walk forward and 
Vivi safely walks across the plank, then cross the one on the left. A little 
bit on your left you'll find 29 Gil. Turn around and go straight. You'll get to
name Vivi and rat kid tells you his name is Puck. Walk down the steps then go 
all the way to the last roof and you'll find 63 Gil. Go back and before 
following Pucks trail go North onto a different roof and you'll find 92 Gil. 
Then go back and turn a right and follow Puck. A cutscene occurs then an FMV. 
After the FMV the play commences and a short mini gameish sword fight between 
Zidane and Blank will occur. Follow the on screen instructions, the more nobles
you please the more Gil you can win.

Afterwards you get control of Zidane, before you do anything equip the Mage 
Masher you stole earlier, then proceed up the spiral steps and you bump into a 
hooded girl. Cutscenes occur with the girl then with two ugly troll juggler 
clowns Thorn & Zorn. Now you'll get control of Steiner, the captain of the 
Knights of Pluto. Walk into the room with the two soldiers in it and you'll 
find a Phoenix Down, also theres a moogle in the room now, so feel free to save
your game if you wish. Now exit through the right corridor, you'll be in a huge
hall, ignore the two side rooms and proceed down the big stairs in the north 
direction, then keep going down until your reach the outside docks with the 
fountain in the middle. Go left then keep going straight. Trek up the large 
spiral staircase and then an FMV appears. Now your in control of Zidane again, 
take the right door then talk to Ruby in the room, then go down the steps 
Garnet went through. Some cutscenes will occur and you'll find yourself in the 
engine room. Turn the wheel to the left then to the right, two chests fall down
so go down the stairs and collect the phoenix downs contained in both chests. 
Go back up and go through the door where Cinna & Garnet are standing. Then you 
have to fight Steiner.

   O=======================================================================O

After you win Zidane, Garnet & Steiner take the elevator up to the stage. Watch
the cutscene and then you have to fight Steiner again. Just kill the two 
soldiers first and attack Steiner normally, and use Vivis Fire spell on 
Steiner. Heal with garnet. Afterwards an FMV occurs and you have to fight 
Steiner yet again, just keep attacking him until the Bomb explodes, then 
another FMV occurs and you'll find yourself in Evil Forest.

+------------------------+ After the FMV you get a cutscene then you get an

+------------------------+ explains what an ATE is. After all that jazz watch

   O=======================================================================O

After that the prison cage flees with Garnet still trapped inside of it. Then 
another Prison Cage pops out of nowhere and traps Vivi. The same battle as 
above would occur except that this time Vivi will be casting Fire on it 
whenever itis Vivis turn. Just attack & heal regularly and be sure to watch out
for Vivis health. And don't forget to steal a broadsword & Leather Wrist off 
the thing.

Once you kill the thing a cutscene occurs and your back at the ship in control 
of Zidane. Get the bronze gloves in the chest next to Baku then take the left 
exit. You get 3 ATEs. After those, walk down the steps and get the wrist in the
chest on the left hand side. Then go in the room on the right, in the bottom 
left hand corner you'll find a ether and climb the ladder on the right to the 
top bunk to find 116 Gil. Climb back down and talk to Vivi. Exit and you get a 
flashback. Choose to save the Princess, then Blank comes to you and says to go 
talk to Baku. Leave through the left and find an Ether in the chest near the 
bottom right door. Go through the door and in the back you'll find a Rubber 
Helmet. Go in the room on the right and talk to Baku. He leaves then get a 
Potion in the room then you exit to. Approach him to trigger a fight.

   O=======================================================================O

Afterwards go to Steiner's room and talk to him, don't forget to get the Ether
in the room. Then go back to Vivis room and talk to him. Go back to where you 
fought Baku and take the South exit. Blank gives you Blanks Medicine and he 
teaches you about abilities. Don't forget to get the Leather Hat in the 
treasure chest next to Blank. Now before we set off to Evil Forest, equip 
properly and set your abilities.

Buy some potions, antidotes & eyedrops at Cinnas Shop, then take the exit to 
Evil Forest and keep following the path to where Garnet was captured. Once you 
reach there you get an ATE. Follow the trail until you reach a large round 
spring and a moogle hidden poorly in a hollow tree trunk. Drink from the spring
to replenish HP/MP. Then save at the moogle & give him the letter (if you have
it) and proceed through the right exit. Keep following the trail and you'll see
a small FMV then keep going and you'll get in a boss fight.

   O=======================================================================O

Afterwards you have to escape from the forest. Just keep running along the path
and eventually you'll see an FMV. After the FMV you see Zidane, Garnet, Vivi & 
Steiner camping. Some cutscenes will come and go, then a moogle comes along and
gives you a Mogster ATE. Mogster can teach you alot of stuff so be sure to read
through it. Afterwards the moogle gives you a Moogle Flute, which allows you to
call a moogle (with Square) anywhere on the World Map. A very nifty item 
indeed.

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

After the camping trip you'll be on the world map. Press Select to see the Map,
you'll notice that straight ahead you'll see the Ice Cavern, which is your 
destination. Walk up to the Ice Cavern but before walking in turn right and 
keep going until you hit a gate. Hit X to enter the gate. Inside you'll find a 
Potion & Eyedrops. Click on the door and you'll be able to buy some potions. 
Stock up then head back to the Ice Cavern.

Inside the Ice Cavern the first chest you see you'll find a Tent. Continue on 
into the next area. Examine the wall of ice on the right, Vivi will be asked to
burn it down, once he does a treasure chest with an Ether is revealed. There's 
another chest on the far left side with a potion, continue your trek up to the 
next area. Burn the wall at the top to reveal a chest with an Elixir. On the 
right you'll see something that resembles and ice log. Go up it to reach the 
treasure chest with a Potion. Go back down and make Vivi burn it. Once it falls
go down it to get to a treasure chest with a Mage Masher. Continue on the trail
at the top right. In the next area look to your right and there will be a 
treasure chest with a Phoenix Down. Burn the wall on the left which reveals an 
extra path. Follow the path to a treasure chest with a Leather Wrist. Go back 
then keep going north to the next area. This new area reveals two paths. Take 
the left one first. Once in the room you see a moogle trapped in a block of 
ice. Make Vivi melt the ice which unveils the moogle & an ATE. Save your game 
and if your low on HP/MP use a tent. Also get the letter from the moogle if you
want to. After your properly equipped go back out and take the right path. When
you reach the next area a short cutscene occurs. When you regain control of
Zidane coninue up the path and you'll get in a boss fight.

After that walk back and everyone should have woken up from the spell. Walk 
back to where the boss fight took place and continue up the cave slopes. When 
your out of the cave a small cutscene occurs. After that cutscene you'll be on 
the world map. Open up the map with Select and proceed to the small farming 
village of Dali.

                           VI. Village of Dali (10006)
===============================================================================

As soon as you enter the town a cutscene occurs where everyone spends the night
at the Inn. The next morning you get some ATEs. After that in your Inn room on
+------------------------+ the right you'll find a chest with an Antidote and a 
| Item Shop ============ | chest on the left with a potion inside of it. Leave 
+------------------------+ the room and outside you'll see a moogle. Save if 
| Potion.............50  | you want and deliver the letter to him (if you have 
| Phoenix Down.......150 | it). Leave the Inn and go to the weapons shop which
| Antidote...........50  | is the first building on the left hand side. Buy
| Eye Drops..........50  | what you need but don't sell your mage mashers, your
| Tent...............800 | going to need two of them later on in the game.
+------------------------+ After that behind the weapons shop you'll find 120
+------------------------+ Gil. Next go talk to Vivi who should be next to the 
| Weapon Shop ========== | windmill. After the chatty cutscene with him go talk
+------------------------+ to Dagger in the weapons shop, then again at the
| Dagger............320  | inn. After the cutscenes go back to where you talked
| Mage Masher.......500  | to Vivi. You'll hear him crying and you need to find
| Broadsword........330  | a way underground. Go to the building on your left
| Iron Sword........660  | hand side and you'll find an Ares Steallazio coin in
| Rod...............260  | the back. Inspect the metal semi-circle that's near
| Mage Staff........320  | the entrance and you'll find a entrance to the
| Wrist.............130  | underground base. Go down the elevator and get 156
| Leather Wrist.....200  | Gil in the chest on the right. Go up into the next
| Bronze Gloves.....480  | area and a cutscene occurs. Afterwards get the 
| Leather Hat.......200  | Eyedrops on the right and the potion in the shed. Go
| Feather Hat.......200  | to the next area. You'll see a moogle in a barrel.
| Rubber Helm.......250  | Talk to him if you want to save your game and get a
| Bronze Helm.......330  | letter from him. Kick the wheel in front of the 
| Leather Shirt.....270  | moogle in the barrel so a chest will fall down
| Silk Shirt........400  | containing a potion. Climb the crates behind the
| Bronze Armor......650  | wheel to get an Ether from a chest. Climb back down
+------------------------+ and proceed into the next area. In this rather large
room you'll find a Leather Wrist to the right and you can find an Iron Helmet 
by climbing the crates to your left. Then keep going straight until you get in 
an area where a weird machine is producing eggs. Here you will save Vivi from a
coffin shaped box. To the right of the doors next to the machine will be a 
treasure chest with 95 Gil. Enter through the doors and inside you will find a 
Phoenix Down, a Potion & a Phoenix Pinion in three seperate chests. Go back out
and go on the wooden plank path in front of the machine. You will then get 
control of Steiner who's at the mountain observatory. Talk to the old man then 
walk down the stone steps. Once you descend tot he bottom, go right and in the
back corner to the right of the mountain you'll find 135 Gil. You can also find
a Hi-Potion to the right of the observatory entrance. Next go into the house at
the foot of the mountain. Inside talk to Morrid. Leave the mountain and some 
cutscenese will occur and you'll have to fight another boss.

After the fight you will get an option to either board the airship or rest at 
the Inn. I recommend resting and saving at the Inn first before boarding the 
airship. Once you do that exit the town VIA the abandoned farming flats. Once 
you board you see some cutscenes then you get control of Zidane. Walk up the 
ladder at the end of the ship and another cutscene with Steiner occurs. Enter 
the airships cockpit. You'll see a short FMV. Watch the cutscene then you'll
have to fight a boss.

                      VII. Lindblum Grand Castle | (10007)
===============================================================================

After the fight a cutscene and a very cool FMV occurs. Afterwards you'll find 
yourself in Lindblum Castle. This is a very big city with lots of wonderful   
+------------------------+ treasures to be found. Some cutscenese occur. Then
| Alice's Item Shop ==== | after the cutscenes in the castle you see Zidane 
+------------------------+ go into a bar where he meets an old friend of
| Potion.............50  | his, Freya. You get to name her. After the cutscene
| Phoenix Down.......150 | Zidane wakes up in an Inn and another Mogster ATE
| Echo Screen........50  | occurs. Read up on Synthesis then speak to the
| Soft...............100 | moogle in the next room over to get a letter and
| Antidote...........50  | save if you wish. Go down the stairs and to the left
| Eye Drops..........50  | of the entrance you'll find 163 Gil. Leave the Inn
| Tent...............800 | and continue south until your at the World Map. Go
+------------------------+ north and to your right you'll see Pinnacle Rocks.
+------------------------+ Enter the area and inside you'll find an Elixir and
| Dragoo's Weapons ===== | a Phoenix Down. Return to Lindblum and continue 
+------------------------+ north into another part of town. Here if you go into
| Dagger.............320 | the the first house by the left north exit you can
| Mage Masher........500 | find an Echo Screen and a Hi-Potion in the two 
| Mythril Dagger.....950 | chests. Exit the house then go through the left
| Iron Sword.........660 | north exit. Keep going to the end of the area where 
| Javelin............880 | there's a church. Before going in check on the far
| Rod................260 | right to find a tent. Then enter the churche and
| Fork...............1100| you'll find a Leather Plater at the top of the 
| Leather Wrist......200 | ladder. Leave the church then go back into the 
| Glass Armlet.......250 | second part of the Business District and make a 
| Bronze Gloves......480 | sharp right and continue straight until your in the
| Silver Gloves......720 | shopping part of the town. Here you will find an
| Steepled Hat.......260 | Item Shop, a Weapons Shop & a new type of shop 
| Headgear...........330 | called a Synthesis Shop. If you read the Mogster
| Iron Helm..........450 | teaching on Synth Shops then you should know what
| Leather Plate......530 | they are. If not then I'll explain. Synth Shops
| Linen Cuirass......800 | allow you to take two items and combine them 
+------------------------+ together to make an even better item. To see what 
you can make in this Synth Shop refer to the list right under this text.

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Torres' Synthesis Shop ==================================================== |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| --Item You Could Make----Cost------------------Required Items---------------|
|   Butterfly Sword        300 Gil               Dagger & Mage Masher         |
|   The Ogre               700 Gil               Mage Masher & Mage Masher    |
|   Cotton Robe           1000 Gil               Wrist & Steepled Hat         |

|   Glass Buckle           500 Gil               Glass Armlet & Leather Wrist |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Now while your here I would do some shopping for the upcoming festival of the 
hunt. Remember when I told you not to sell your Mage Mashers? Well the reason I
told you that was because you would need those two items to synth together an 
Ogre, which is a very powerful weapon. I would also Synth a Glass Buckle for 
everyone in the party and a Cotton Robe for Vivi, Garnet & Quina(a future party
member). After buying whatever you need you go back to the part of the Business
District where the Inn is located. Go in the right house and you'll be in the 
Air Cab station. Lindblum is a very big city made up of four major districts; 
The Business District, The Theather District, The Industrial District & 
Lindblums Castle. You can access all these districts VIA the Air Cab. Now take 
the Air Cab to the Theater District. 

Exit the station and in the bottom right corner next to the house tucked away 
in the bottom right you'll find 127 Gil. Go in the house and you'll find some 
Ore. Leave the house then go down the steps to the left. On your left you'll 
see the Tantalus hideout building. Enter and you get an ATE and afterwards a 
cutscene occurs. When the bell rings you gain control of Zidane again. Around 
the hideout you'll find 97 Gil, 282 Gil & 68 Gil. At the top of the ladder 
leading to the top bunk you'll find a Mini-Burmecia. leave the hideout then go 
down the steps at the bottom right. Talk to all the Lowell fangirls then Lowell
comes out, greets everyone, leaves, then comes back out disguised as a giant 
moogle. Leave this area and go back to the artists house in the beggining of 
the Theater District. You'll find Lowell hiding there. He'll bribe you with his
autograph in exchange you don't tell anyone of his location. Go back to the 
station and take the aircab to the Industrial District. On the left hand side 
of the station entrance you'll find a Leather Wrist. Walk up the steps and go 
all the way to the back and enter the house. There you will find a Mimic Card 
and a Steepled Hat. Go back to the cab station and take the cab to Lindblum 
Castle. 

Go up the steps then go south to enter the area of the castle with a fountain 
in the top right corner. Take the right steps up and enter the room at the end 
of the hall. Here you will find a Ether and a Glass Armlet. Leave the room and 
go back left, you wil hear someone singing. Go back to where the fountain is 
and try to access the lift where the guard is walking back and forth patrolling
the lift area. Try to access the lift and he won't let you. Go back to the to 
leveled room and walk down the steps where theres a guard sleeping. Talk to him
and Zidane will trick him and beat him up to steal his suit. Go back to the 
lift and you'll get access to it. Take the lift up and make a left up another 
set of steps. Here you will see a short FMV, then a cutscene. When your looking
through the telescope find all the areas where a "!" pops up and the cutscene 
will continue. The next thing that occurs is the festival of the hunt.

===============================================================================
                       a. Festival of The Hunt | (10008)
===============================================================================

Now this is a fun little part of your trip in Lindblum. During the festival 
you'll be in control of Zidane. Your goal is to get the most points and win the
festival of the hunt. Before you begin anything save your game at the moogle in
the room. The soldier mentions your starting point is the Theater District. So 
take the cab to the Theater District and the festival will begin. Heres the 
monsters in each area.

          Theater District
              Outside Air Cab station - Mu (x1) & Trick Sparrow (x1)
              Outside Tantalus hideout - Trick Sparrow (x1)
              Area where Lowell fangirls were - Fang (x1)
          
          Business District
              Near the Inn - Trick Sparrow (x1) & Mu (x1)
              Left side od screen in shopping area - Fang (x1)
              Outside the church - Fang (x1) & Trick Sparrow (x1)
              Back in shopping area - Fang (x1) (chasing Vivi)
              Main square near Synth Shop - Boss: Zaghnol (x1)

          Industrial District
              Outside Air Cab station - Fang (x1)
              Near the staircase - Mu (x1)
              Outside the far north house - Mu (x1)

Now since you start out in the Theater District kill all the beasts in this 
area. After that take the Air Cab to the Business District. Don't even bother 
with the Industrial District. Once in the Business District kill all the beasts
in the area before going to fight Zaghnol outside the Synth Shop. Once your 
done killing all the beasts go fight Zaghnol.

   O=======================================================================O
   [ B O S S             Zaghnol | HP: 1,574 | AP: 0 | Level: 9            ]
   O=======================================================================O
   [ Zidane should steal the items Zaghnol has in his possession. Attack   ]
   [ normally with Zidane and have Freya use her Jump command. Heal if     ]
   [ necessary and you'll win easily. If Zidane goes into Trance just use  ]
   [ his strongest Dyne spell on him.                                      ]
   [ --------------------------------------------------------------------- ]
   [                  Steal: Mythril Gloves, Needle Fork                   ]
   [ --------------------------------------------------------------------- ]
   [                              Spoils:  N/A                             ]
   O=======================================================================O

The points you get for Zaghnol varys, but I got 80 points. If you followed the 
path I took then you should win the festival very easily. If you win you get 
5000 Gil & the Master Hunter award. You'll see a cutscne which you'll find out
your next destination. Which is Burmecia.

Now before you go rushing off to Burmecia you have to go through Gizamaluke's 
Grotto. I suggest you equip everyone properly and level them up some. The 
enemies between Dragon's Gate all the way to Gizamalukes Grotto are pretty 
tough. I suggest you first go to the area between Lindblum & Pinnacle Rocks 
(VIA south exit of the Business District). And level everyone up there to at 
least level 10. Then go back to the lift and go to the bottom floor. Take the 
right car to Serpent's Gate and you'll find a Wyerd Card to the left. Take the 
car again up to Dragon's Gate. Save at the moogle and consider purchasing some
items you might need at the nearby merchant. Then exit through the north door. 
Before you do anything level up some more here at least until you get to level
12/13. Now look at the map and to your right you'll see Chocobo's Forest and 
straight ahead is Qu's Marsh. First well go to Qu's Marsh to get a very 
helpful addition to our party. 

===============================================================================
                            b. Qu's Marsh | (10009)
===============================================================================

Here you can find two things. 1) Mogster from the Teach Me Mogster! ATEs 2) A 
new member for your party. First walk straight and you'll see Mogster, speak to
him if you want to learn anything. If not then keep going straight until you 
reach some tall thick grass. Just keep going straight until you see a thing 
trying to catch frogs. If you see a frog on the land make Zidane run up and 
catch it with the X button. Once you catch a frog give it to the thing. A scene
occurs then Quina joins your party. Quina won't have anything equiped except a 
Fork, so you have to properly equip him/her, don't forget to give him/her the 
Needle Fork you stole from Zaghnol. After that leave Qu's marsh and return to 
the World Map.

===============================================================================
                       VIII. Gizamaluke's Grotto | (10010)
===============================================================================

Once you exit Qu's Marsh look at your map and head for Gizamaluke's Grotto. 
Once inside you'll see a cutscene then you enter the Grotto. Talk to the 
soldier on the right hand side and he gives you a bell. Ring the bell on the 
door to the left. Then go on through. You find Thorn & Zorn in the Grotto. 
After some talk they sic they're black mages on you. After you beat them they 
run away. Go further a little more and kill the black mage walking around. He 
drops a bell, so use it on the middle door. Walk through and you see a Moogle 
couple in peril. Vivi helps out with his Kupo Nut. Go up the right stairs and 
under the bridge you'll find a Magus Hat & at the top right of the stairs 
you'll find a pair of Mythril Gloves. Go back to where the big bell was and go
through the right door where you'll see the moogle newlyweds inside. Save and 
use a tent if you wish. Attempt to leave and the male moogle will stop you and 
give you a Holy Bell. Leave the room and use the bell on the left door. Walk 
through and you'll be confronted with this areas big bad boss.

===============================================================================
                      IX. Grand Citadel South Gate (10011)
===============================================================================

You see Steiner carrying a big bag arched over his shoulder. Speak to the two 
guards and eventually they'll let you pass. You find out Dagger is in the bag
+-------------------------+ and you need to find a good place for her to pop
| Item Shop ============= | out the bag. The alleyway seems to be the best spot
+-------------------------+ but there are people in the way you need to get rid
| Potion..............50  | of. Speak the the blue antlion looking thing on the
| Phoenix Down........150 | left hand side of the screen. You learn he's
| Echo Screen.........50  | slacking off. Talk to his supervisor on the right 
| Soft................100 | hand side and he walks off. 1 down and 1 more to 
| Antidote............50  | go. Talk to the guy in the dead center of the area
| Eye Drops...........50  | and you find out he's bummed out about going 
| Tent................800 | bankrupt. Talk to his fat girlfriend who's standing 
+-------------------------+ right in front of the alley. Tell her to console 
him and she'll waddle herself over to him. Now before you go into the alleyway 
pick up a Multina Racket in the bottom left hand side of the screen. Now go to 
the alleyway and a soldier stops you and hands you a Gate Pass. Garnet will 
come out of the bag in the alleyway and you proceed to the train station. Pick 
up a potion in the chest to the left. Save at the moogle and get a letter from 
him. Buy some items if you want at the item shop and then board the train. A 
cutscene occurs and you find yourself in control of Zidanes party once again.

===============================================================================
                               X. Burmecia (10012)
===============================================================================

Look at you map and find Burmecia. It's nearly directly north of Gizamaluke's 
Grotto. Go there and you witness a cutscene. After that you find yourself 
+-------------------------+ within the city walls of Burmecia. On your right
| Atla's Mogshop ======== | hand side you'll find a Hi-Potion and a Tent.
+-------------------------+ Behind the statue on your left hand side you'll
| Needle Fork........3100 | find the Cancer Stellazio coin. Continue north into
| Glass Armlet.......250  | the next area. You see Thorn & Zorn and they make
| Mythril Gloves.....980  | their Black Mages attack you. After you defeat them
| Steepled Hat.......260  | proceed through the door on your left. Inside you
| Headgear...........330  | will find a Soft and a Potion. Go back outside and 
| Magus Hat..........400  | this time go through the right door at the top of 
| Linen Cuirass......800  | the steps. Once inside behind the right staircase
| Barbut.............600  | you'll find a soft. Climb up the stairs and you'll
| Bronze Vest........670  | see a treasure chest to the left of the door in 
| Potion.............50   | fron of you. This chest is a Mimic and instead of
| Phoenix Down.......150  | giving you an Item or Gil, it will attack you.
| Echo Screen........50   | Whether you choose to fight it or not doesn't
| Soft...............100  | matter either way. Go through the door and past the
| Antidote...........50   | two large doors with the bell in the middle. In 
| Eye Drops..........50   | this area the bridge will fall down. Go all the way
| Tent...............800  | back outside and go through the left doors again.
+-------------------------+ The bridge that fell down creates a new bridge for 
you to cross below. When you cross it you see a chest on your right hand side. 
Thats another Mimic. Go through the door, past the two dead Burmecians and onto
the balcony, you jump from one balcony unto the next. When your inside of the 
house speak to the Burmecian soldier. He tells you there's a bell under the 
bed. Get the bell then to your left in a chest is an Ether. Go back outside and
through the right door at the top of the long set of steps. Go back to the two
large doors with the bell in the middle. Ring the bell and the doors will open.
Proceed into the next area. First thing you should do is to go through the 
middle doorway and save the Burmecian soldier from the falling statue of a 
Burmecian Buddha. Go back outside and up the staircase on the right, ignore the
doorway and just cross the path over the fallen statue into the door on the 
left. When you enter you see two chests containing a Tent and a Phoenix Down. 
There's a Mimic to the right, ignore it and just keep going north. You find 
yourself outside again. Go through the left house to find a new Mythril Spear. 
Go back out and go into the right house. Inside there will be a moogle where 
you can save, use a tent, and buy some new equipment and items from his 
Mogshop. In the back is a chest with a Lightning Staff in it. Once you get that
Stiltzkin will come in. Buy his Soft, Hi-Potion & Ether combo for only 333 Gil.
After his thanks go back outside and proceed north. You then see a cutscene
and you'll get into a boss fight.

| Glass Armlet........250 | whistle and Dagger hears a similar voice. Walk
| Silver Gloves.......720 | outside and you see Cinna & Marcus walk into the
| Mythril Gloves......980 | station. That's when you walk back in and you see

Once that's over you witness a cutscene then you get back on the train and 
arrive at the station. There's an item shop to your right. Leave the station 
and you'll be in a fork in the road. Take the left path to visit Dali again. 
Once in Dali you can get the Elixir in the chest the old lady on the farm was 
blocking in Disc 1. Go back to the fork and make a right. Cross the broken 
bridge and in the bottom right of the screen you'll find 1,610 Gil. Keep going 
right and you'll be on the World Map. Just keep going straight and enter the 
circular town called Treno.

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

Once you climb down save at the moogle. This is a fantastic place to level up 
your party seeing as how they're probably much lower in levels compared to the 
other players in the game. Once your satisfied with your levels (about Level 10
with everyone is good) make a left. Here you will find two chests, one with a 
Chain Plate in it and the other with a Phoenix Down. Pull the lever at the end 
of the room then return to where the moogle was located. Head right into the 
next screen. Go north and pull down on the suspended lever. A Gargant comes 
rushing by. You then have to run back to the last screen and pull on the Feed 
lever. Once you do that the Gargant stops, everyone hops onto the cart 
suspended on the Gargants back and you make your way to Alexandria. But of 
course your run into a boss.

Once you reach Alexandria you get trapped by Thorn & Zorn in a cage that seems 
relativley easy to climb out off... oh well. After the cutscene your back again
with Zidanes party that's Cleyra bound.

===============================================================================
                          IV. Cleyra's Trunk | (20004)
===============================================================================

You see the party is outside of Burmecia. To get the Cleyra look at your map 
and you'll see that Cleyra is a bit northeast of Burmecia. Once you get there 
just keep going staight until you get to a door. There's a lever to open to 
door to the right off it. Pull the lever and proceed through the door. There 
will be a chest on the right hand side with a Phoenix Down. Take the top right 
exit into the next area and you'll find a pair of Magician Shoes near the 
bottom. Parallel to that chest is another one with an Ice Staff inside of it. 
Take the right exit and proceed up the right hill. At the top you find an Ether
and a small hole. Click on the hole and choose the third option. Proceed back 
down the hill and climb up the vines to the big circular entrance above you. 
Continue through this area and exit westward through a circular entrance. Here 
on the left you'll find a Needle Fork & a little bit above that will be a chest
containing a Tent. The path up ahead forks, so take the left path first where 
you meet a moogle. Save and use a tent if you wish. You can also continue the 
Mognet quest if your doing it. 

Continue north and another fork derails your path. The left path leads you to a
Flame Staff. Next go down the right path and you come into an area with a 
bridge. Cross it and continue on your trail. Now your in a room that seems a 
bit confusing. In front of you there should be a chest with Desert Shoes in 
them and to your far right is a chest with a Remedy in it. Follow the path of 
the Remedy to find a chest with Mythril Gloves in them. Walk back some and you 
find yourself in a room with a metal crank. Kick the metal crank and the sand 
to your left stops flowing. Head back to the cave room and to your left you'll 
find a Mythril Vest. Go back to the entrance of the cave and make a left. In 
the next area there will be a Potion in the chest. Follow the right path to get
an Elixir. Go back and take the top left path and your in a room with three 
sand whirlpools. The two chests in this room contain a Hi-Potion and 900 Gil. 
If you get sucked into the whirlpool you have to repeatedly tap X so it spits 
you back out. Exit through the west path and just follow the curved trail into 
an area with a ladder that looks like it's about to fall apart. Before climbing
the ladder get the Gyashl Greens in the chest behind the ladder then climb up 
the ladder. Take the right path and you'll find yourself in Cleyra.

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

Once your in Cleyra one of the priests will offer you a tour. You can take it 
or not, either way it doesn't matter. On your right you'll find 970 Gil. Go 
+-------------------------+ back out and climb the steps. Take the right path 
| Nina's Item Shop ====== | and you'll find Ore in the bottom right of the 
+-------------------------+ screen. You'll find a Remedy on the steps next to
| Potion..............50  | the Inn. Continue upwards until you find yourself
| Phoenix Down........150 | on Cathedral grounds. Here you'll find Gyashl 
| Echo Screen.........50  | Greens at the bottom right hand of the screen and
| Soft................100 | an Echo Screen at the top right of the screen. Go
| Antidote............50  | inside the cathedral and talk to the priests. They
| Eye Drops...........50  | give you a message from Freya to Zidane. She tells
| Annoynment..........150 | you to go to the Inn and rest. Do just that and a 
| Tent................800 | Burmecian soldier runs up to you and says an 
+-------------------------+ Antlion is mauling a kid. Of course you have to
+-------------------------+ help. But first, go into the Inn and save at the 
| Dan's Weapon Shop ===== | Moogle. Afterwards go back to the entrance of 
+-------------------------+ Cleyra and enter the right area where you found 970
| Partisan...........1600 | Gil. Then you'll be thrown into a battle with an
| Air Racket.........400  | Antlion. After the battle you get a cutscene of
| Mythril Rod........560  | Freya and her Cleyran companions performing some
| Flame Staff........1100 | sort of rat version of the river dance. The jewel
| Ice Staff..........980  | on the harp shatters and you witness an FMV of the
| Needle Fork........3100 | sandstorm that protects Cleyra, deteriorating.
| Bone Wrist.........330  | After the cutscene you gain control of Freya. Go to
| Mythril Armlet.....500  | the Inn with her and buy a Hi-Potion, an Ether and
| Mythril Gloves.....980  | a Phoenix Pinion of Stiltzkin for 444 Gil. To the 
| Thunder Gloves.....1200 | left of the Inn check-in desk you'll find an Echo
| Magus Hat..........400  | Screen and to the lower right of the Inn you'll 
| Bandana............500  | find 1,250 Gil. Go upstairs and at the cabinet 
| Mage's Hat.........600  | you'll find an Ether. Save at the moogle and get
| Mythril Helm.......1000 | mail for Zidane from the moogle. Leave the Inn and 
| Chain Plate........810  | make a left. Near the water wheel you'll find a
| Mythril Vest.......1180 | pair of Thunder Gloves. Go down and on the steps
| Chain Mail.........1200 | you'll find a Phoenix Pinion. If you go to the town
| Mythril Armor......1830 | hall you can find a Yellow Scarf and an Echo Screen
+-------------------------+ there. After this go to the entrance of Cleyra and 
regroup back with Zidane and the rest of the party.

Start climbing down Cleyra's Trunk. Along the way you'll encounter Alexandrian 
Soldiers. When you reach the bridge next to the cave and you'll see a short
cutscene. After that go to the spot where you fought the antlion. The same 
moogle will be there but he'll ask you to deliver a letter this time. Use a 
Tent if you need to and save your progress. Then head back out and up the steps
to help the citizens of Cleyra. Take the left path and you'll run into two 
priests. Tell them to run right, then you have to fight some Black Mages. 
Follow the path the priests took. When you see Dan's family tell them to run to
the left direction. Then some more Black Mages attack. Follow their trail and 
again tell them to cross the bridge on the right. More Black Mages attack. 
Follow their trail. Tell them it's not over yet and you proceed up the steps to
the cathedral. Many Black Mages appear and you can't handle them all. Then a 
mysterious Dragoon Knight appears and swiftly distinguishes the foes. A 
cutscene occurs when your in the Catherdral. Before leaving the cathedral talk 
to all the people in the room to gain some useful items. Dan's family gives you
an Elixir, a Nymph Card and a Zuu Card. The three people on the right give you 
an Ether and a Pheonix Pinion. Speak to the moogle in the room. Heal yourself 
with a Tent and save your progress. After that head through the south exit and 
you'll get in a boss fight.

   O=======================================================================O

Afterwards watch the cutscene and then an FMV occurs. Then you find yourself on
Brahne's airship, The Red Rose. Go up the steps and a cutscene occurs. Walk 
along the top floor and Zidane will peek through the door. Go back and as your 
walking down the steps you see a moogle run on screen then off. Go to the 
moogle, get a letter through mognet and save your progress. Go back to where 
Vivi is and follow his plan. Then you gain control of Steiner again.

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

You see Steiner and Marcus trapped in a bird cage suspended in mid-air. Follow 
the on-screen instructions to escape the cage. Once you've escaped I would 
level Steiner up a few levels by fighting the Alexandrian soldiers that come 
running endlessley down the hallway in pairs of two. Once you get him to around
Zidanes current level proceed up the ladder on the left hand side of the area. 
Then go through the door once your at the top. You see Steiner and Marcus come 
up from an underground spiral staircase. After the cutscene you have 30 minutes
to save Garnet(way more then needed). Leave through the west exit and you find 
yourself outside of the castle. Follow the path and you'll find yourself in an 
area with a fountain in the middle. Proceed north and keep going straight up 
the stairs under the large painting of Brahne. Continue south through the 
doors. There's an optional boss that you can attempt to beat now or in Disc 3. 
To know more about this optional boss proceed to the Side Quest section of this
guide. Once you enter through the south corridor you find yourself in the same 
place where Zidane first met Dagger. Go up the spiral staircase and through the
north door. 

Keep going straight until you hit the room at the far end of the area. You find
yourself in Brahne's personal chambers. Flip the purple switch at the top left 
of the room and a secret entrance opens. Go down the entrance and there will be
a revolving bridge. On the one side are two chests containing a Ice Brand and a
Tent. Go to the other side and just keep walking down until you hit the bottom
level. Go through the north door and you'll find Dagger. Thorn & Zorn spot you 
and they attack.

   O=======================================================================O

Once that's done it's time to head all the way back up to Brahne's personal 
quarters. Once you reach Brahne's room you'll see a cutscene and then you have
to fight a boss.

After this battle the party splits. Run all the way down while fighting off 
Black Mages and Bandersnatches. When you reach the bottom Steiner leaves the 
party. Go to the room where you fought Zorn & Thorn. Speak to the moogle to get
a letter and to save. Then exit the room and continue south to watch a scene. 
Take a Gargant ride and then you run into a boss that's similar to the previous
one you faced in Gargan Roo.

===============================================================================
                          VII. Pinnacle Rocks | (20007)
===============================================================================

During the cutscene you witness the ghost of an old man Eidolon who says his 
name is Ramuh. To get him to become your Eidolon he sets out a test. That test 
is to find 5 of his ghostly images throughout Pinnacle Rocks, colect 5 piece of
the story and piece them together at the end. Once he tells you that you exit 
into the next area. Walk back in and you'll find the first ghost. Speak to him 
to get a piece of the story. Walk back out and you see a moogle. Save here and 
continue the mognet sidequest if your doing it. Now in the bottom right screen
you'll find a Mythril Vest. Also in the back of the screen under the bridge you
should see another image of Ramuh. Speak to him to get another piece of the 
story. Keep going north and you see a chest. Walk up to it and Ramuh appears. 
He gives you a piece of the story, then open the chest to get an Ogre. Take the
left ramp up and make a right. You'll find yet another image. You can jump down
from the part of the bridge to the chest below to get a Mythril Armlet. Walk 
back up the ramp and go south. You'll see another image of Ramuh. You should 
now have all 5 pieces of the story. Go all the way to the back area where you 
had to jump down to get a chest. Take the ramp down in the tunnel and Ramuh 
asks for all 5 pieces of the story and you have to put them in order from 
Beggining to End, but one of the pieces don't fit. The story goes like this; 
Beggining, Cooperation, Silence and Human. Once that's through watch the 
cutscene and you walk through the exit. Then you see an FMV.

+-------------------------+ the painters house and the tantalus hideout. Then
+-------------------------+ speak to Lowell about Rubys theater. Now go back to
| Weapon Shop =========== | the business district and go to the shopping area
+-------------------------+ where all the shops are. You find Daggers Uncle
| Dagger,............320  | Artania there. He informs you of the current 
| Mage Masher........500  | situation. Then you go talk to Cid and a cutscene
| Mythril Dagger.....950  | occurs. Afterwards Cid gives you 3000 Gil spending
| Ice Brand..........3780 | money. Your instantly taken to the shops in the
| Partisan...........1600 | Business District. Take a few minutes to buy what
| Multina Racket.....750  | you need and don't forget to be properly equip 
| Stardust Rod.......760  | before you set off on a rather large journey. After
| Flame Staff........1100 | your finished preparing talk to the man in front

                            IX. Fossil Roo | (20009)
===============================================================================

Once your outside the Serpents Gate head to Qu's Marsh. Once inside just keep 
going straight until your at the frog pond where you first met Quina. Sure
enough there's Quina again. Talk to her to get her back in your party. Head 
north and talk to the Qu in the house. Exit and take the top right exit into a
large thicket of grass. A cutscene occurs and you find yourself in front of the
entrance to Fossil Roo. Once inside go down the stone steps and through the 
door at the bottom of the steps. Once inside you'll see a large metal gate to 
your right. Walk up a little and a funky looking beast on wheels pops out of 
the gate and proceeds to chase you. If he catches you you'll get in a fight 
with him. He looks incredibly tough but in reality he's a weakling. If you do 
get in a fight two Fira spells from Vivis Black Magic arsenal will quickly 
destroy him. Though if you do beat him he will just get up and continue to 
chase you in the next area. As you run down the path that he chases you on 
there are suspended guillotines swinging back and forth. If you run into them 
you won't get injured but it will throw you back into the direction of the 
beast. Just avoid the guillotines and the beast for two areas and on the third 
area it falls down a hole and that's it for it. Continue into the next area and
you get in a boss fight.

After she runs off walk down the steps. Pick up some of the grass in the area 
then stand in the middle and when the "!" appears press X and a gargant comes
+-------------------------+ to give you a ride into the next area. Here you
| Mogki's Mogshop ======= | will find a treasure hunter, a save moogle and our
+-------------------------+ old friend Stiltzkin. Talk to the hunter to get
| Potion.............50   | some info on the area you are in and navigating
| Phoenix Down.......150  | through this hellish maze. Speak to the moogle to
| Echo Screen........50   | save and to continue the mognet sidequest. The 
| Soft...............100  | moogle also has a little shop with various
| Antidote...........50   | medicines for sale. Speak to Stiltzkin to get a
| Eye Drops..........50   | Phoenix Pinion, Remedy and an Ether for only 555 
| Annoyntment........150  | Gil. Take the bottom right path, pick up some 
| Tent...............800  | grass, and take the gargant for a ride to an area
+-------------------------+ where you will find a pair of Fairy Earrings in a
chest. Take the gargant back to where the moogle is +-------------------------+
and this time, take the top right path. Here ride   | Prospector Shop ======= |
gargant to an area where there's a switch that      +-------------------------+
changes the course of the gargant you previously    | Ice Brand..........3780 |
rode to obtain the Fairy Earrings. Pull the switch  | Partisan...........1600 |
and head back to the previous gargant and take it   | Multina Racket.....750  |
for a ride. Once you land in the area walk up the   | Stardust Rod.......760  |
strps to your left and walk north. Here you will    | Mythril Armlet.....500  |
find an Ether. Walk back down the steps and head    | Thunder Gloves.....1200 |
north. Follow the path into the next area. You'll   | Bandana............500  |
find yet another switch. Pull it and head back to   | Mage's Hat.........600  |
the gargant and ride it back to where the two       | Mythril Helm.......1000 |
moogles are located. Take the bottom right path and | Chain Plate........810  |
ride the gargant. Once you land you see a treasure  | Mythril Vest.......1180 |
hunter right in front of you. He's here to sell you | Adaman Vest........1600 |
some equipment and medicine. After that run up the  | Mythril Armor......1830 |
steps to your right into the next area. Here's a    | Potion.............50   |
switch you need to pull. Once you do that ride the  | Phoenix Down.......150  |
gargant on your right and he'll take you to a chest | Echo Screen........50   |
with a Lamia's Tiara inside of it. Ride the gargant | Soft...............100  |
back to the previous area. Pull the switch and ride | Antidote...........50   |
the gargant a second time. In this area you see a   | Eye Drops..........50   |
giant wall decorated in vines and statues of faces. | Annoyntment........150  |
Try to climb on the vines and the statue above      | Tent...............800  |
sends a stream of water in your direction, knocking +-------------------------+
you into the body of water directly below you. Jump out and take the lower 
right path and ride the gargant to a room containing a Survival Vest in the 
left hand side of the room. Exit the room and you see another treasure hunter. 
Speak to him and he offers to let you mine here in exchange for one potion. 
Take the deal. At the far right end of the area you see a pile of boulders that 
look extremely out of place. Hit them with the pick axe 20 times or so and a 
moogles pops out. Get a letter from him and feel free to save your progress. 
He has a small item shop with the same inventory as Mogki's Mogshop. After your
finished here head through the left exit and you find yourself in the previous 
area with the giant wall covered in vines. Climb the vines all the way up and 
make your way left to the switch. Pull the switch and make your way back down 
to the bottom right exit of the area. Ride the gargant to the exit of Fossil 
Roo. Once you get out you find yourself in the Outer Continent. Here you will 
find a Qu's Marsh to the west of your current location, but your real 
destination is the town of Conde Petie, located atop of a bridge made of two 
large tree roots.

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

After you enter the building with unusually strange architecture. The locals 
hassle you about not getting down with their local slang. After Zidane agrees
+-------------------------+ to speak in their ebonic language you'll find 3,700
| Item Shop ============= | Gil behind the dwarf guarding the entrance to the
+-------------------------+ village. Head through the door on your left then 
| Potion..............50  | make another left until your in a local meeting
| Phoenix Down........150 | spot/inn. Behind the left bed you can find 1,800
| Echo Screen.........50  | Gil. Talk to the fat lady beside the bed if you
| Soft................100 | need to rest. Go back to the entrance of Conde 
| Antidote............50  | Petie and this time make a right. You'll find 
| Eye Drops...........50  | yourself in the Item Shop. There's also a moogle
| Annoyntment........ 150 | here so save your progress. On the steps to the 
| Tent................800 | right you'll find a Phoenix Pinion. The door next
+-------------------------+ to the Item shop leads to the Weapons Shop. Walk 
+-------------------------+ back out and up the stairs. Here you'll see a
| Weapon Shop =========== | boat... thing suspended in mid-air. Walk on top of
+-------------------------+ it and you'll find a Diamond. That's pretty much
| Poison Knuckles....5000 | all that Conde Petie has to offer. Once the scene 
| Multina Racket.....750  | occurs of when Vivi runs off in hot pursuit of the
| Stardust Rod.......760  | Black Mage that was in Conde Petie that's your cue
| Flame Staff........1100 | to leave as well. Go back down the earth ramp you
| Ice Staff..........980  | had to use to get to Conde Petie. To your right
| Lightning Staff....1200 | you should see a trail of thick woodland leading
| Oak Staff..........2400 | down to what seems a dead end. Well your dead 
| Mythril Fork.......4700 | wrong. Walk down (or use a chocobo, but I recomend
| Mythril Armlet.....500  | walking so you can gain some levels) the thicket
| Magic Armlet.......1000 | of woodland until you get to the area with a "?" 
| Lamia's Tiara......800  | when you approach it. Enter it and you witness
| Ritual Hat.........1000 | the Black Mage waddling off in the right direction.
| Adaman Vest........1600 | Now this forest can be a bit confusing, but all you
| Magician Cloak.....1850 | have to do is take the trail that has no owls. To
+-------------------------+ determine which trail has no owls just refer to the
sign in the middle of the fork. It will point to one direction saying something
along the lines of "Path of Owls" and the other direction saying "Path of No 
Owls". Go down the path with no owls and soon enough you'll run into the Black 
Mage again. Watch the cutscene and you'll be in Black Mage Village.

Once inside Vivi becomes infatuated with the thought that there are other 
people just like him who could talk. He immediatley runs off to try and talk to
+-------------------------+ some other Black Mages. Dagger chases after him and
| Item Shop ============= | Quina gos to look for some food. Which leaves
+-------------------------+ Zidane all alone. To your left is the weapon shop.
| Potion..............50  | Go inside if you wish to buy some new weapons. 
| Hi-Potion...........200 | There's an Elixir to the right of the entrance. Now
| Phoenix Down........150 | head to the chocobo shack by going to the next
| Echo Screen.........50  | screen at the top right. Here you will find a      
| Soft................100 | moogle to save your progress. Also speak to him
| Antidote............50  | about mognet and he'll give you a letter for
| Eye Drops...........50  | another moogle. Go inside the shack and you can

| Annoyntment.........150 | beggining. Walk up the steps to the north and walk
| Tent................800 | to the right. Here you will find a door to your
+-------------------------+ right and one to your left. First go through the 
+-------------------------+ right one and you'll find yourself in the Inn. Here
| Weapon Shop =========== | you can find a Virgo Stellazio in the second room
+-------------------------+ of the Inn where the beds are located. If you
| Mage Masher........500  | speak to the mage he tells you that they're not 
| Mythril Dagger.....950  | ready yet to take in any guests. Leave the Inn and 
| Gladius............2300 | take the left door. Here is the Item Shop. You can

===============================================================================
                         a.  Back To Conde Petie (20012)
===============================================================================

Really short scenario here. All you have to do is go to the top floor where the
boat thing is located and talk to the dwarf guarding the entrance to the 
sanctuary at the top right corner. He tells you that you can't enter the 
sanctuary without first undergoing the 'ceremony'. He then tells you that only 
the Holy Priest can perform ceremonies so you must find him first. You'll find 
the Holy Priest in the hallway next to the Inn. Speak to him and watch some 
hilarious cutscenes. After the ceremony they tell you to go and announce their 
ceremonial relationship to the two dwarfs guarding the entrance to the 
sanctuary next to the Weapon Shop. Leave through the exit and another cutscene 
occurs with a little blue haired girl. After that continue down the large tree 
root and into the Mountain Path.

===============================================================================
                           XII. Mountain Path | (20013)
===============================================================================

Once you get on the Mountain Path you rescue the little blue haired girl who 
almost falls down a pit. Once you rescue her you get to name her (default 
Eiko). Once you name Eiko she joins your party while Quina runs off to try and 
eat Eikos moogle. Walk up the left ramp and climb the vine. On the ledge you'll
find a chest to your left with a Remedy inside. Walk along the ledge to your 
right into the next area. You see a weird looking statue at the end. In the 
statue you can find a Blue Stone. There are three other stones like the Blue 
Stone that are needed to gain a special stone later on. You can find all four 
of these stones as we go along on the Mountain Path. Now once you get the Blue 
Stone go back to where you rescued Eiko and take the right path. Here you'll 
see another vine. Climb up and go left. You'll find a chest with a Tent inside.
There's also a statue here with the Red Stone inside of it. Climb back down the
vine and continue on the right path. Up ahead there's a fork in the road and at
the beggining of the fork is the moogle Suzuna and our old friend Stiltzkin. 
Buy a Magic Tag, a Tent and a Ether of him for only 666 Gil. Next talk to the 
moogle and deliver her letter (if you have it). Save and use a tent if you need
to. The right path leads down to a statue you need to visit later on the insert
all four of the Stones. So ignore that path for now and take the left path, 
climb the vine and continue down the large tree root. You'll see a short FMV 
then keep walking right and you'll get in a boss battle.

   O=======================================================================O

After the battle continue down the root and you see a statue in between the 
fork in the road. In the statue you'll find the Yellow Stone. Take the right 
path and you'll find and Ether and the final stone, the Green Stone. Go all the
way back to where Stiltzkin and Suzuna are. Take the right path down and insert
all four stones into the statue. Once you do that a Moonstone pops out. Return 
back to where you fought Hilgigar and take the left path. You'll find yourself 
on the World Map. Head north and enter the village of Madain Sari.

                           XIII. Madain Sari | (20014)
===============================================================================

Once you enter the village you witness a cutscene. Afterwards you get control 
of Zidane. Don't forget to watch the ATEs. After watching them you can find the
+-------------------------+ Libra Stellazio behind the fountain and a Tent 
| Morrison's Mogshop ==== | under the bench in the bottom side of the screen.
+-------------------------+ Follow the top path and speak to the moogle that's
| Dagger.............320  | there. You witness a rather funny scene with Quina.
| Mage Masher........500  | Go back to the fountain area and you witness an 
| Mythril Dagger.....950  | ATE. This is part one of a part two interactive 
| Gladius............2300 | ATE. Here you will have to assign which moogles do
| Poison Knuckle.....5000 | what in the kitchen. Which moogle you assign to 
| Multina Racket.....750  | what duty doesn't matter. After this ATE take the
| Golem's Flute......2700 | bottom left path and talk to Vivi. Try to enter the
| Pinwheel...........200  | kitchen and a moogle tells you that dinner isn't
| Magic Armlet.......1000 | ready yet. Go back to the fountain area and your
| Lamia's Tiara......800  | engaged in the interactive ATE part 2. This time
| Ritual Hat.........1000 | around you have to pick how many people you have
| Adaman Vest........1600 | to cook for. If you count correctly you get 10, but 
| Magician Cloak.....1850 | that's not your answer. The real answer is 11 
| Survival Vest......2900 | because you never know if someone will want
| Potion.............50   | seconds. Then Eiko wonders if she should put the
| Phoenix Down.......150  | Oglop in the stew that she found on the Mountain
| Echo Screen........50   | Path. Whether you choose to or not doesn't make a
| Soft...............100  | difference, but if you choose to put it in a bonus
| Antidote...........50   | scene occurs at the dinner table. After that the
| Eye Drops..........50   | moogle catches a 'fish' but really it's Quina. 
| Magic Tag..........100  | Allow Quina to assist you in your cooking. After 
| Annoyntment........150  | the interactive ATE is over head back to the moogle
| Tent...............800  | at the top right path and speak to him. Now go and
+-------------------------+ speak to Dagger and tell her to come see the 
Eidolon Wall. Leave and go back to the kitchen and dinner commences. After the 
scene is over Eiko asks Zidane to bring the pot to the kitchen. Before bringing
the pot in pick up a Phoenix Pinion behind a table and an Ore next to the 
table. Bring the pot into the kitchen. After speaking with Eiko grab the Kirman
Coffee that's located on the left side of the kitchen. Try and leave and a 
moogle will ask if you want to rest. Agree and you see a cutscene. In the 
morning your automatically transported outside Madain Sari and onto the World 
Map. Go back into Madain Sari and at the entrance Morrison will be there and he
has a Mogshop open. Buy whatever you need but don't forget to stock up on Magic
Tags. You'll need them for the next part of your journey. Ahead back onto the 
World Map and go to the Mountain Path. When your at the place where you fought 
Hilgigar take the left path. You'll find yourself once again on the World Map. 
Head north until you hit a big tree and enter.

===============================================================================
                            XIV. Iifa Tree | (20015)
===============================================================================

Once you enter you witness a short scene and you receive a Ruby. Once inside 
just keep going straight and follow the path until your inside the actual tree
and your next to a moogle. Save here and deliver the letter you should have for
him. After that keep following the trail until your reach an elevator. Here 
your on a branch trail that somewhat resembles a spiral staircase. On your way 
down you will find a Phoenix Down, Hi-Potion, Ether, Lamia's Flute and a 
Remedy. Once you exit the spiral branchcase you'll be in a weird looking place 
with a glowing pit. Get on the elevator thing in front of you that's shaped 
like a leaf and you ride it down. Along the way you encounter two fights. The 
first fight you will encounter 2 Zombies and the second fight you'll encounter
1 Dracozombie. Once your finished with the two battles the leaf elevator 
touches ground. Get off and behind the bottom steps you'll find an Elixir. A 
little bit behind Vivi and Eiko you'll find a chest with a Brigandine inside of
it. Speak to Vivi and Eiko then a small earhtquake occurs. Run up to Daggers 
location at the top of the stairs. After that inspect the bottom left part of 
the area and you encounter a boss battle. Before entering this battle make sure
none of your party members are a level that is a multiple of 5 and that 
everyone (or mostly everyone) has the Body Temp ability equipped.

   O=======================================================================O

After the battle is a cutscene and your immediatley transported outside the 
Iifa Tree. A cutscene occurs and you have to head back to the village.

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

Go back to the kitchen of Madain Sari and go down the steps into Eikos room. A 
cutscene will occur then she runs off to the Eidolon Wall to pray. You can find
a Survival Vest and a Phoenix Down in her room. Run off to the Eidolon Wall. 
Speak to the moogle and ask the first option to be healed. Then choose the 
first option three times, in this process a moogle flys to the two chests 
across the waterfall, opens them, and gives you what's inside of them; an 
Exploda & an Elixir. Then speak to the moogle and choose the third option. 
You'll see a cutscene and you get in a boss fight with only Zidane.

   O=======================================================================O

Go back to Eikos room and she asks to join you. Either way if you say yes or no
she joins anyway. You see a cutscene then you gain the Memory Earring. After 
that leave Madain Sari and Scarlet confronts you again. He joins your party 
then you name him (default Amarant). Now that your party is over the maximum 4
party member limit you must now set up your party. My party was set up with 
Zidane, Dagger, Vivi & Amarant. Return to the Iifa Tree.

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

Once you enter just keep following the same path until you reach the cutscene 
where Amarant and Zidane carries everyone up the tree. For the next couple of 
minutes of the game you mostly just see cutscenes and FMVs. You only have to 
battle two or three times. While you run down the tree root you'll encounter a 
battle with these ugly looking slugs about 2 times. When you reach the bottom 
you get an Aquamarine and you witness an FMV. Then more cutscenes. 

Congrats! Your finished with Disc 2. Pop in Disc 3 and continue playing.

ladder and head back into the alley. Speak with     | Oak Staff..........2400 |
Blank and Marcus, then head down into Ruby's Mini   | Pinwheel...........200  |
Theater. A cutscene occurs in the theater then      | Glass Armlet.......250  |
another one in the castle with Dr. Tot and the soon | Bone Wrist.........330  |
to be Queen Garnet. In the second cutscene you      | Mythril Armlet.....500  |
an Opal, a Topaz and an Amethyst. You then get      | Magic Armlet.......1000 |
control of the ever energetic Eiko. She bumps into  | Mythril Gloves.....980  |
Doctor Tot in a cutscene while she's in the castle. | Thunder Gloves.....1200 |
She declares him a nerd and asks him to help her    | Lamia's Tiara......800  |
write a love letter to Zidane. Afterwards walk her  | Ritual Hat.........1000 |
out of the room and into the hallway. A cutscene    | Twist Headband.....1200 |
with Baku occurs and then yet another cutscene      | Barbut.............600  |
happens, but this time with Zidane and his former   | Mythril Helm.......1000 |
Tantalus band members. Vivi mentions that he wants  | Gold Helm..........1800 |
to go see Dagger. Once you gain control of Zidane   | Magician Cloak.....1850 |
your destination is the castle. But before going    | Survival Vest......2900 |
there go back to Kupo the moogle inside the steeple | Brigandine.........4300 |
to get another letter. Now go to the castle through | Mythril Armor......1830 |
the area where you found the Gil and Phoenix Pinion | Plate Mail.........2320 |
A cutscene occurs with Amarant and Freya. After     +-------------------------+
they discontinue their conflict you ride the boat to the castle. Here you can 
find an Ether on the left side of the dock and a Phoenix Pinion on the right 
side. Also there's a Lapis Lazuli at the top right of the screen. Before 
heading straight go left and through the gate. Go through the left door and you
can find the Leo Stellazio at the top right corner. Now go back to the dock and
head north, then a cutscene occurs. You then find yourself back in Treno.

                               II. Treno | (30002)
===============================================================================

Once you arrive in Treno head out the tower and leave Treno. Go south and take 
the gate to Dali. Here go to the Mayor's house at the top left part of town.
+-------------------------+ Here you'll see his kid sleeping on the couch in
| Item Shop ============= | the center of the room. You'll be given an option
+-------------------------+ of four options to check in the room. Examine the
| Potion..............50  | desk to find Mini-Brahne. Check the desk until the
| Hi-Potion...........200 | kid snores 'Zzzz...' then check the heater to find
| Phoenix Down........150 | the Mayor's Key. Now exit the Mayor's house and 
| Echo Screen.........50  | enter the house next to it. Use the Mayor's Key on
| Soft................100 | the door at the top right. Walk through and in a 
| Antidote............50  | chest at the end of the area you'll find 30,000
| Eye Drops...........50  | Gil. Check it again to find Burman Coffee. Head
| Remedy..............300 | back into the house. You'll notice the windmill
| Annoyntment.........150 | stopped spinning, so you can now walk up the
| Tent................800 | ladder and claim the two chests that are up there
+-------------------------+ containing an Elixir and a Cachusha. Afterwards
head back to Treno. Go to the Stellazio lady and    +-------------------------+
give her your Stellazios. You should have three of  | Weapon Shop =========== |
them for her. Now head to the weapon shop. Here     +-------------------------+
you can buy some nifty equipment if you want or     | Dagger.............320  |
you can fight the beast at the bottom. If you       | Mage Masher........500  |
fight the beast and win you get 15,000 Gil. Choose  | Mythril Dagger.....950  |
Zidane to fight him, but before going in make sure  | Gladius............2300 |
you have the ability Jelly equipped because he has  | Ice Brand..........3780 |
a nasty habit of trying to petrify you with his     | Coral Sword........4000 |
Devil's Bell spell. If you got the Angel Bliss      | Partisan...........1600 |
weapon equipped he should go down in three hits.    | Ice Lance..........2430 |
Don't forget to watch all the ATE's that occur in   | Cat's Claws........4000 |
the area. One of the ATEs can even get you a        | Poison Knuckles....5000 |
Chimera Armlet. Once your done running your         | Multina Racket.....750  |
errands in Treno head for the Card Stadium and      | Stardust Rod.......760  |
register for the Card Tournament. Whether you win   | Healing Rod........1770 |
or lose it doesn't matter, but you can win some     | Lamia's Flute......3800 |
good items if you win. If you want to learn how to  | Oak Staff..........2400 |
play the Tetra Master card game then refer to the   | Magic Armlet.......1000 |
Mini Games section. Also if you intend to win this  | Mythril Gloves.....980  |
tournament then I suggest saving at the moogle      | Thunder Gloves.....1200 |
next to the Weapon Shop before each match. After    | Lamia's Tiara......800  |
the first round you'll win an item and you get an   | Ritual Hat.........1000 |
ATE. The same thing occurs after the second and     | Twist Headband.....1200 |
final match except that the prize you win for the   | Mythril Helm.......1000 |
final match is actually useful; a Rebirth Ring.     | Gold Helm..........1800 |
After you win/lose the tournament Eiko runs up to   | Magician Cloak.....1850 |
you and Regent Cid with some ominous news. She      | Survival Vest......2900 |
says something awful is about to happen in          | Brigandine.........4300 |
Alexandria. The pary then rushes off to Alexandria  | Linen Cuirass......800  |
in the crap-tastic Hilda Garde 2.                   | Mythril Armor......1830 |
                                                    | Plate Mail.........2320 |

===============================================================================
                            III. Alexandria | (30003)
===============================================================================

Once the party leaves Treno you immediatley cut to Dagger in her castle. She 
has to give orders to soldiers on what to do. If you give which pair of 
soldiers the right job you'll earn yourself a pair of Angel Earrings. Blutzen &
Kohel should get the job of Gathering Information, Weimar & Haagen should 
Protect The Townspeople, Breireicht & Laudo should contact Lindblum For 
Reinforcements, and Dojebon & Mullenkedheim should Begin Preparations For 
Firing The Cannons. Afterwards the scene cuts to Steiner and Beatrix, who are 
protecting the townspeople of Alexandria. For this next part you have to guide 
Steiner and Beatrix around the town and fight those ugly slug beasts you first 
saw at the Iifa Tree. You haven't used Steiner in a long time so don't forget 
to equip new armor and such to him. The next few fights can be tough because 
you can go for two or three fights without a break to heal. First defeat the 
slug at the bottom of the left screen and then continue south and defeat all 
the slugs that come in your wake. After the battles you cut back to Dagger. 
Once you regain control of her ontinue up the steps and down the hallway. Walk 
up the steps on your left and through the door to the north, then the door to 
the left. Continue up the steps then you witness a cutscene which leads to an 
FMV. You then gain control of Zidane and the party. Follow Daggers previous 
tracks to reach her but before ascending the second set of steps mentioned 
above enter the right room and save. Now there's an optional boss you can fight
in Alexandria's Castle. I mentioned the boss before in Disc 2. Well this is 
your last time to challenge the boss. If you don't defeat it now you'll never 
get another chance. The boss' name is Tantarion and he can be found in the left
room at the entrance of the castle. He can be a bit tough so be sure to save 
before hand.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Optional Boss: Tantarion 
HP: 21,997 | AP: 30 | Level: 41
Steal: Ether, Elixir, Silver Fork, Demon's Mail
Spoils: Running Shoes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok well he can be tough as hell if you don't understand him. First off I'll 
suggest putting all your members in your party in the back row because 
Tantarions Paper Storm attack can do lots of damage to each character but if 
they're in the back row they'll receive last damage, and secondly there's no 
use for physical attacks in this game, except for opening the book. Tantarion 
also has a Doom spell that puts a countdown over a characters head and when it 
reaches 0 that's the end for him. Another attack of his is Edge Hit, where 
Tantarion just physically attacks you. Now for the strategy. You might be a bit
confused by this book enemy, well the book is just the real enemies defense or
'armor' if you will. What you have to do is physically attack the book then 
the book searches through a page, if the enemy is found in one of the pages 
then he loses his cover. Once you uncover the enemy don't ever physically 
attack him again. If you do then the book just closes then you have to search 
for him again. When the enemy is uncovered the only spell he will use is 
Poison, but if you have Antibody equipped on your characters then that won't be
a problem. Use Zidane, Amarant & Freya to heal the party if anyone needs it and
make Vivi cast Bio on the enemy for a whopping 2,500+ HP damage on the enemy 
each time. The book only closes if you attack it physically a second time. The 
book also closes about 3-5 turns after it opened. If it closes again just 
repeat the strategy. If you follow this strategy you should be able to beat him
in two book openings, one if your lucky just one book opening. Once you win you
gain a very useful item and a whopping amount of 30 AP points (which doubles if
you have Ability Up).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you want to fight the boss or not it doesn't matter. Continue following 
Daggers trracks and once you reach the top where Alexanders stairs begins you
wil lsee a short scene. Go up the stairs and a cutscene occurs followed by an 
FMV. You then find yourself in Lindblum Castle.

===============================================================================
                             IV. Lindblum | (30004)
===============================================================================

Once you gain control of Zidane inspect the two chests in the room to receive 
an Egoist's Armlet and an Elixir. Save at the moogle and read his letter. He'll
+-------------------------+ also have a letter for you to deliver. Try to leave
| Weapon/Item Shop ====== | the room and Blank stops you. He says you've slept
+-------------------------+ for three days and that Regent Cid wants to talk to
| Coral Sword........4000 | you. Leave the room and take the lift to the upper
| Partisan...........1600 | level. You learn some shocking news about Kuja and
| Ice Lance..........2430 | the Black Mages. Cid complains about his current
| Poison Knuckles....5000 | state and how he wants to become human again. So,
| Magic Racket.......1350 | Regent Cid calls in for Doctor Tots help. Doctor 
| Healing Rod........1770 | Tot says he read a book a long time about about
| Lamia's Flute......3800 | transformations, but that he's unsure on whether or
| Cypress Pile.......3200 | not the book was reliable. He says that you will
| Mythril Fork.......4700 | need an Unusual Potion, a Beautiful Potion and a
| Pinwheel...........200  | Strange Potion. Zidane says he'll go out to find 
| Chimera Armlet.....1200 | them. First go to the Business District. Go 
| Thunder Gloves.....1200 | straight until you reach the second area. On the 
| Twist Headband.....1200 | left hand side you'll find the Sagittarious 
| Mantra Band........1500 | Stellazio. Go inside the house to find a Remedy and
| Dark Hat...........1800 | an Elixir. Exit the house, turn right and go into
| Gold Helm..........1800 | the shop area. Speak to Alice, who's item shop is
| Magician Cloak.....1850 | in the process of being rebuilt, and she'll give 
| Survival Vest......2900 | you the Beautiful Potion. This is as good a time
| Brigandine.........4300 | as ever to check out the sexy new equipment at the
| Mythril Armor......1830 | weapon shop on your right. Dragoo also sells items
| Plate Mail.........2320 | now in his shop because Alices shop is currently
| Potion.............50   | out of commission. The synth shop has nothing new.
| Hi-Potion..........200  | Leave the Business District and head for the 
| Phoenix Down.......150  | Theater District. You'll meet the family you saved
| Echo Screen........50   | in Burmecia a long time back. A cute little 
| Soft...............100  | cutscene occurs. Afterwards head into the house on
| Antidote...........50   | the right and pick up the Strange Potion in the 
| Eye Drops..........50   | bottom left side of the screen. You can also find
| Magic Tag..........100  | a Lapis Lazuli in the chest on the right. Leave
| Remedy.............300  | the house and head to the Tantalus Base. Here
| Annoyntment........150  | you'll meet up with your old Tantalus Crew. Zidane
| Tent...............800  | asks Cinna for the Unusual Potion, which Cinna 
+-------------------------+ gives up without even a question. Head into the 
base and open all the chests here to find 1,273 Gil, 4,826 Gil and 970 Gil. 
Once your done here head back to Regent Cids room at the castle. A rather funny
scene occurs then another scene occurs about Dagger losing her voice. Cid gets 
pissed an orders the ship Blue Narciss to be stocked and ready to head out to 
sea. Take the lift down to Base Level and ride the trolley on the right to the 
Serpents Gate. You can find a Chimera Armlet to your top left when you touch 
ground. Continue south and board the blue ship out on the dock. Your next 
destination is Black Mage Village.

                             a. Sidequest? | (30005)
===============================================================================

This isn't really necessary to do. It's more of a personal sidequest. Now I've 
played this game many times before. The number I've played this game is 
probably reaching double digits. Eveytime I got to this part of the game I 
started to do the Chocobo's Hot & Cold Mini Game/Sidequest until Choco has 
evolved into either the Red Chocobo or the Blue Chocobo. Mainly because treking
across oceans and continents is so much easier with the Chocobo then it is with
the Blue Narciss. A little suggestion I like to put out to you readers of this 
walkthrough is to do the same as I have. It just makes things much easier and 
you can gain some really needed and incredibly helpful items along the way. If 
you want to know more about the Chocobos Hot & Cold Mini Game/Side Quest refer 
to Mini Game/Side Quest section. Also don't forget to deliver all three coffees
to Morrid. More on the Morrid Coffee Sidequest in the Sidequest section.

                          V. Black Mage Village | (30006)
===============================================================================

Once you reach the Black Mage Village Vivi runs off in search of other Mages. 
Go to the cemetery and you see a small cutscene. Vivi then runs off to the 
Chocobo Shack. Follow his trail and once you get their you see that the egg has
hatched into a little Chocobo. Leave the shack and you see the Mage that was at
the cemetery standing outside the shack. He tells you of Kujas current 
location. Now that you know where to go head there. Once you reach the east 
side of the continent you find 4 sand whirlpools. If you choose the wrong one 
you have to fight an Antlion much similar to the one you fought in Cleyra. 
Either way the correct whirlpool is the top north western one. Press X to enter
the whirlpool and your in Kuja's Desert Palace.

===============================================================================
                            VI. Desert Palace | (30007)
===============================================================================

You wake up and you find yourself in a prison. Kuja calls Zidane out. When you 
get out walk south and go between the two Black Mages. They teleport you to
+-------------------------+ Kujas stylish room decorated in purple satin (very
| Twins' Item Shop ====== | sexy). He gives you a mission to do. Your mission
+-------------------------+ is to go to Oeilvert and retrieve something that
| Potion..............50  | Kuja wants. Now Kuja mentions that Oeilvert has a
| Hi-Potion...........200 | Anti-Magic Field around it, keep that in mind. Kuja
| Phoenix Down........150 | gives you the option to pick three party members. 
| Echo Screen.........50  | Now remember that there's an Anti-Magic field
| Soft................100 | around Oeilvert, so the best party to take would be
| Antidote............50  | Zidane, Amarant, Quina and Steiner. Once your
| Eye Drops...........50  | outside walk the stone path and onto the airship
| Magic Tag...........100 | AKA Hilda Garde 1. The airship takes you to the
| Vaccine.............100 | western continent AKA Forgotten Continent. Now
| Remedy..............300 | when you get dropped of the airship make note that
| Annoyntment.........150 | you can go back to the plane and buy items. When 
| Tent................800 | your ready to head out bring up the World Map by
+-------------------------+ pressing [Select] and look for Oeilvert. Once you 
spot it on the map follow the path to it. It's quite a long walk away and the 
path is kind of side-winding which requires a lot of navigation. Once you reach
Oeilvert enter with the 'X' button.

===============================================================================
                              VII. Oeilvert | (30008)
===============================================================================

Once you enter you find a moogle on your right hand side. Save and feel free to
use a tent if you need it, also note that the moogle has a Mogshop open and a
+-------------------------+ letter he wants you to deliver to Mooel. The 
| Mimoza's Mogshop ====== | Mogshop has new equipment and such that you will 
+-------------------------+ want to have. After your finished head north and

| Chimera Armlet.....1200 | the chest near the bottom of the screen and Shield 
| Egoist's Armlet....2000 | Armor in the chest above the hologram. Go through
| Thunder Gloves.....1200 | the door at the bottom left of the screen. You'll 
| Diamond Gloves.....2000 | find a Power Vest in the chest on the bottom level
| Mantra Band........1500 | and a pair of Feather Boots in the chest at the top
| Dark Hat...........1800 | level. Go to the upper level and touch the clear
| Green Beret........2180 | orb on the left first then the clear orb next to
| Gold Helm..........1800 | it. Walk back downt he steps and touch the right 
| Cross Helm.........2200 | orb then the left orb. Walk back up the stairs and
| Brigandine.........4300 | go through the door to your left. Walk the
| Judo Uniform.......5000 | suspended bridge path and touch the Examine the
| Plate Mail.........2320 | orb in the middle of the bridge. After the scene
| Gold Armor.........2950 | keep going left and you'll find yourself in the
| Hi-Potion..........200  | previous room with the giant planet hologram. Go
| Phoenix Down.......150  | through the top left door in the room that was 
| Echo Screen........50   | previously locked. Once inside continue onto the
| Soft...............100  | lift and a somewhat creepy scene occurs. Afterwards
| Antidote...........50   | return back to the first area of Oeilvert near the
| Eye Drops..........50   | entrance. Now take the right path and you'll find
| Magic Tag..........100  | a moogle here and Stiltzkin. Deliver the letter to
| Remedy.............300  | Mooel and buy Stiltzkin's Hi-Potion, Emerald and 
| Annoyntment........150  | Elixir for only 888 Gil. Now continue right and 
| Tent...............800  | past the giant circle in the middle of the room. A
+-------------------------+ scene will occur. Then grab the Gaia Gear in the 
chest behind the hologram. Continue right through the large doorway and a short
FMV occurs of Zidane going down the lift. When you reach the bottom you'll be 
in a small room. Walk up to the pedestal and try to take the stone from it. 
When you do you get attacked by a boss.

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

You'll witness a scene that takes place in Desert Palace. Regent Cid declares 
that he must do something and so you gain control of Cid for a little while.
+-------------------------+ Now follow the path until your in the room with
| Mojito's Mogshop ====== | the monster in the cage. You have to get past him
+-------------------------+ when his back is turned to you. Once your past him
| Diamond Sword......4700 | you have to put weights on a scale so you can walk
| Trident............3580 | up it. Put Stone, Clay, and Iron on the weights and
| Mythril Claws......6500 | Cid will walk up it. After the scene you'll have 
| Magic Racket.......1350 | control of the leftover party members in the cell.
| Healing Rod........1770 | Walk to the room on the right and speak to the 
| Fairy Flute........4500 | moogle inside. Get the letter from him and check
| Cypress Pile.......3200 | out his Mogshop. Also be sure to save. Once your
| Silver Fork........7400 | done keep walking left into the main palace. You 
| Pinwheel...........200  | will see a candlestick to the left. Examine it to
| Rising Sun.........500  | light it then examine the glowing orb for a Promist
| Chimera Armlet.....1200 | Ring. Climb the stairs and then examine the Goddess
| Diamond Gloves.....2000 | statue. Head left and a path will appear before 
| Mantra Band........1500 | you. Head up the path and continue around the 
| Dark Hat...........1800 | balcony to light the candlestick at the end. Make
| Green Beret........2180 | your way back and follow the bottom right path to

| Potion.............100  | Light the torch on the left and head back into the
| Hi-Potion..........200  | room you were in before where the statues should 
| Phoenix Down.......150  | have disappeared letting you into the middle part
| Echo Screen........50   | of the room. Ignite the two torches here and the
| Soft...............100  | other statues should disappear. Then light the 
| Antidote...........50   | other two torches on the right side of the room.
| Eye Drops..........50   | The only torch left to light is the bottom one
| Magic Tag..........100  | that's standing there by itself. Examine the 
| Remedy.............300  | bloodstone now to get an Anklet. Continue through
| Annoyntment........150  | the right door and light the candlestick at the top
| Tent...............800  | of the path. Examine the bloodstone to get Shield
+-------------------------+ Armor. Keep following the path and go up the steps.
Examine the candlestick on the left side to reveal a staircase. Go up it then
examine the candlestick to the left that reveals a secret path. Follow the path
and examine the bloodstone to get an N-Kai Armlet. Return to the previous room
and go up the small staircase. Examine the candlestick here. Ignore the path
that opens up and go down the stairs to examine the candlestick that's standing
there at ground level. Once this is lit up a path is revealed so go through it
and light the candlestick in there. Go back to the library and a secret room
will open on the left side of the room. Talk to the moogle there and deliver
the letter you should have for him. Save your game and use a Tent if need be.
Put out the candle on the right side then take the path going away from the
mid-level of the room. Go up the staircase and light the candle on your way up,
as well as the candlestick at the top. Return to where the moogle was and keep
going left. Light the two candles here and examine the bloodstone for a Black 
Hood. Continue through the door and keep following the path. Light all the 
candles in this area and examine the bloodstone for a Venetia Shield. Now put
out the candle on the left to change the direction of the statues shadow. Now
go to the left side of the room and light the candle to change the statues 
shadow direction. Both of the statues shadows should now be facing left. A path
in the middle should now be revealed. Follow up the path and light the
candlestick here to trigger a boss fight.

                              XI. Lindblum (30012)
===============================================================================

After that last boss fight you'll find yourself in the Lindblum Castle guest
room. Talk to the moogle here and ask about Mognet to get a letter. Leave this
room and take the elevator all the way up and head into the conference room.
During the scene you will get a Garnet and after that you will be aboard the
Hilda Garde 3. While your in the cockpit head left, down the stairs and you'll
see Amarant standing outside there. Next to the ladder you will find a Tent. 
Now you can head straight to Ipsen's Castle if you want. Or you can visit 
Alexandria to pick up some treasures.

===============================================================================
                             b.  Alexandria (30013)
===============================================================================

Once you enter Alexandria you will find a Sapphire on the left hand side of the
screen. Head into the next area and to your left you will find an Ether. Keep
going up until your in the area with the ticket booth in the middle. Check near
the bottom entrance where you just came in to find a Remedy. Then check in 
front of the Weapon Shop for 365 Gil. Check the lower left side of the area to
find an Amethyst. Go into the alleyway on the left hand side and go into Ruby's
Theater. Check the tables near the entrance for 2,680 Gil. Leave the theater 
and head to the steeple where youou will find a Tent right beside it. The Jump
Rope mini-game is now located inside the steeple. Head back to the town square
and head north through the castle gates to reach the boat dock. Check the areas
right beside both of the small balcony's here to find a Topaz and 4,832 Gil. 
Then ask the soldier in the boat to take you to the castle.

When you get off check the left side for an Opal. Examine the rubble in front
of the middle pathway for a Sapphire and the rubble near the right pathway for
a Peridot. Continue to the left pathway and enter the tower. Then go through
the door on your left to find the Leo Stellazio in the upper right corner of
the room. Your now done here in Alexandria. Next stop is Daguerreo!

===============================================================================
                              c. Daguerreo (30014)
===============================================================================

Daguerreo is a library hidden way up on a mountain, inside a cave, and between 
two waterfalls all the way on one of the most Southwestern islands. The 
mountain it's located on is quite big, so it's not hard to miss. This place is
also my personal favorite place in the whole game. I'm not sure why, I just 
love it here. Anyways once your inside Daguerreo start by going right and down
a little bit you will find the Capricorn Stellazio. Then head through the right
door and take the elevator up. 

Speak to the moogle here and save. Head left into the next area and press the 
switch next to the lady at the counter. Examine the books on the right hand 
side then go all the way to the left side and speak to the man standing between
two bookshelves to tell him where his book is located. Move in between the 
bookshelves where the man once stood and you'll find a staircase. Once you go 
down the stairs move left to find an Elixir. If you have the Namingway card and
you speak to the man standing there he will rename your characters for you if
you'd like. Head back to the entrance of Daguerreo and head left this time.

Once inside the new room examine the switches on the wall and pull the left
lever twice. Examine the now revealed hole in the wall then examine the pole
leaning against the wall. Now keep examing the right lever until the platform
reaches ground level. Step on the platform and it wil ltake you up to the 
Equipment Shop. The stuff here is very expensive. Hopefully you can afford
whatever you need. Your now pretty much done here.

                               Sidequests (30015)
===============================================================================

Before you head to Ipsen's Caslte right now is the best time to do and finish
any sidequests that you haven't done yet. You can finish most sidequests after
Ipsen's Castle, but after your finished with that part you will just want to
keep advancing with the story and once you get to the Shrines then you won't
get a chance to finish the sidequests on Disc 3 that you can't do in Disc 4. 
Such as the Morrid's Coffee sidequest. It's your choice to do them or not. 
Refer to the Sidequest section for more info on all the sidequests. 

===============================================================================
                           XI. Ipsen's Castle | (30016)
===============================================================================

Ipsen's Castle is all the way in the Northwestern tip of the Forgotten
Continet. It's in a gorge that's accesible only by Airship. Land on the grass
outside the castle and walk in. Now this place is a little weird. Inside all
of your powerful weapons will be weak and all your weaker weapons will be 
strong. So the strongest weapon to have for Zidane in this Castle is a Dagger. 
So make sure that whoevers in your party that uses regular physical attacks has
their weakest weapon equipped to them. Most of the weakest weapons can be 
bought in Dali.

Once your in the Castle open the chest on your left to get a Dagger. Then open
the chest to your right to get the Aquarius Stellazio. Head into the next room
and get the Cat Claw's in the chest at the top, then speak to the moogle in 
this room. Deliver the letter you should have for him and check out his 
Mogshop. Save your game then slide down the pole to your right. Walk up the
path and climb the ladder there to get up to the top ledge. Keep walking left
and head through the door. Walk up the ladder on the left side and when a "!" 
appears press X and jump to the right. You'll find a Broadsword in the chest at
the end of this path. Then walk on the left pathway to find a Javelin. Hop back
on the ladder and go down it. Now go up the ladder on the right side of the 
room. Climb it and when you jump off climb down the ladder that's right beside
that one. Keep walking this path to find a Rod in a chest. Return to the top
platform and go through the door. Now go into the elevator and ride it up to
trigger a scene. Examine all the mirrors on the wall to obtain Earth Mirror,
Water Mirror, Wind Mirror, and Fire Mirror. Leave this area and you will 
trigger a boss fight.

   [ An incredibly easy boss. Just keep assaulting it when it's in its     ]

   O=======================================================================O

After defeating him head back down the elevator. Examine the wall on the right
and choose to examine it, push it, pound it, think, do it all again, try 
something drastic, then rest. Head through and open the chest here for a
Barette. Head back to the entrance of the castle and watch the scene where Vivi
almost falls down a trap door. Fall down the trap door above this one on 
purpose and open the chest to obtain Maiden Prayer. Climb back up the pole all
the way up and jump off to get a Mage Staff and a Fork. Go to the front hall of
the castle near the entrance and walk up the middle steps and cross the 
walkway. You'll see an elevator in the middle of the room. Head left and get
the Air Racket from the chest there. Stand on the elevator and it will take
you down to a new area. Grab the Golem's Flute from the chest then grab the pot
on the right shelf and put it on the upper right shelf. Take the pot on the
upper left shelf and put it on the right shelf, take the pot from the upper
right shelf and put it on the upper left shelf. Now take the pot on the right
shelf and place it on the upper right shelf. After rotating them you can 
examine the vase to get Ancient Aroma. 

Now leave the castle and watch the scene. Zidane goes back in alone and all
you have to do is slide down the pole where the moogle is and you'll find
Amarant at the bottom. Leave the castle together and watch the scene. Save your
game and head to the Water Shrine. Which is right on the west side of the
Forgotten Continent.

                            XII. The Shrines | (30017)
===============================================================================

Once you reach the water shrine Dagger and Eiko are dropped off there. Then
it's time to go to the Fire Shrine located in the volcano near Mount Gulug.
Once Freya and Amarant are dropped off there you have to go to the Wind Shrine.
The Wind Shrine is on the south end of the Forgotten Continent. Vivi and 
Steiner are dropped off there. Last stop is the Earth Shrine on the southeast
side of the Outer Continent where the ground is shaking violently. Once Zidane
and Quina are dropped off there just keep following the path and you'll be
coming in and out of cutscenes. When a "!" appears be sure to press X. Make
sure you have Gaia Gear or Feather Boots equipped to Zidane and Quina. Examine
the mirror on the pedestal to trigger a boss battle.

   O=======================================================================O

After defeating him your next stop is Shimmer Island. Which is directly south
of Esto Gaza. It's like a circular cluster of icebergs. Be sure to visit
places you want to visit before going here. You won't be back for a while.

===============================================================================
                              XIII.  Terra | (30018)
===============================================================================

Once your in Terra continue into the next screen then walk down the stairs to
your left. Keep jumping across the platforms to reach a chest containing a 
Dragon Wrist. When your jumping back jump to the right platform to get a 
chest with a Coronet inside of it. Follow the girl to the next screen. On the
next screen open the chest to your right for an Elixir then continue chasing
the girl into the next screen. Climb down the spider web to get a chest on
the right side with a Remedy inside of it. Go back up the web and jump the gap
to your left and get the Mythril Racket from the chest. Try jumping across the
gap and choose the option to jump down. Open the chest to your right to get a
Demon's Vest then follow the girl on the left hand side. In the next screen go
across the bridge and then in the next area go up the stairs to find a 
semi-secret path on the left that leads down to a Minerva's Plate. Climb up
the steps into the next screen and watch the scene.

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

Head to the very top of the town and go through the door there. Head downstairs
and on the floor you will find an Elixir. Leave this room and go into the 
building on the right hand side of town and examine the pot in the room for a
Moogle to pop out. Ask him about Mognet and he will give you a letter. This
Moogle is also operating a Mogshop, so don't forget to check it out. Open the
chest in this area to get a Wing Edge. Then speak to Stiltzkin and buy his
travel package of Diamon, Ether, & Elixir for 2,222 Gil. Save your game and
then leave the room. Head into the Inn on the left side of town to watch a 
scene. Walk back in and open the chest for an Elixir. Head back into the 
building at the top of the town and return downstairs. Speak to the girl
standing here to watch a scene. Then walk back up the steps for another scene.

Once you get control of Eiko watch all the ATE's that come your way. Once you
watched them all run around the town and speak to Vivi and Amarant to get them
in your party. Return to the beggining of town where there was a force field
blocking your entry into another area. The force field should now be gone so
walk up the path to watch a scene. When you gain control of Zidane again just
keep following Garland until you find yourself in Pandemonium.

                            e. Pandemonium | (30020)
===============================================================================

When your in Pandemonium you will watch a scene and during that scene you will
encounter three battles. Once they're defeat head back to the beggining and
pick up the party members that should be waiting there. Speak to the Moogle and
be sure to save your game. Head to the throne on the right and examine it to
get a Holy Miter. Now keep heading left until you hit a room with a light near
the entrance. Examine the light and a timer appears as well as a few other
lights that appear. What you need to do is make your way to the lower left of
the room without touching any of the other lights. If you do touch any of the
lights than a battle is triggered and the timer automatically runs out and you 
will have to start all over again. Once you pass through the lower left door 
you will see a bridge extending far out into another area. 

Cross the bridge and in the next area examine the statue in the middle where it
gives you an option to change th value of it. Set it to three then continue 
left into the next area. Go up the platform and onto the elevator. When you get
off continue going up and ride the elevator a second time which will take you 
to a chest containing 20,007 Gil. Head back to the statue and set the value to 
4 then go back to the elevator room and ride the elevator up. In this next area
head for the upper right exit and then stand on the teleporter there. Keep 
following the path which takes you to a chest with Caribini Mail inside of it.
Return to where you were and take the upper left path. Go right at the fork
and step on the teleporter that drops you down to a chest with an Elixir inside
it. Go back to the beggining again and take the lower path to a teleporter.
When you reach a fork take the lower path to a telporter that has a chest with
Battle Boots inside of it. Return to the fork and this time go up. Speak to the
Moogle standing here and deliver the letter you should have for him. Save your 
game then continue right to the next area. After a scene you will have to fight
a string of bosses.

                     a. Before The Final Showdown | (40002)
===============================================================================

Now before you go rushing off to Memoria there are some things you might want 
to take care of. Like finishing the Chocobo Hot & Cold sidequest and the Mognet
sidequest. Doing these things can get you wonderful items and amazing top-line 
equipment for your characters. I won't go into in-depth detail about the 
sidequests. That's what the Sidequest/Mini-Game section is for. But one thing I
will tell you to do is to go back to Daguerreo. The weapon and synthesis shops 
here have been updated, but that's not the only reason to go there. Another 
reason to go there is to fight Grand Dragons for some much needed leveling. 
Just outside of Daguerro the only beasts you will find are Grand Dragons and 
Gimmecats. The only other place on Gaia to get good experience is to fights 
Yans on Vile Island, but Grand Dragons are much easier. The average Grand 
Dragon gives 8,000 EXP and 3 AP, which is fast leveling and fast ability 
learning. The Gimme Cats only give 1 EXP but they do give 3 AP. Level here 
until you get your prefered party level to around 60.

                             II. Memoria | (40003)
===============================================================================

Once you enter the portal above the Iifa Tree an FMV occurs. After the awesome 
FMV you encounter a battle with the Nova Dragon.

   [ Easy battle here. Just attack normally with your characters that      ]
   [ usually attack normally. If Vivi's in your party just cast Flare on   ]
   [ the Dragon and if Eiko's in your party have her cast Holy. Heal when  ]
   [ needed. If Steiner's in your party have him cast Shock which will be  ]
   [ an instant 9,999 Damage spell.                                        ]

After this battle you'll witness a cutscene. Then you get to choose your party.
After that continue north into the building. The rainbow sphere to your left is
what will be replacing moogles throughout Memoria. Save then continue north. 
Make a left in the next area then go up the stairs. Make a left onto the other 
screen then continue north and you'll encounter a boss battle with one of the 
Shrine Guardians.

   [ This boss has a penchant for casting Reflect on himself, so Vivi is   ]
   [ pretty much useless here. Have Zidane and Amarant attack normally     ]

   [ status for this battle. Use Eiko's Holy spell when you see an opening ]
   [ to do so.                                                             ]

   O=======================================================================O

Continue into the next area and you witness a small "memory" cutscene. After 
that go up the small steps and to your left you'll find Eiko's ultimate weapon
'Angel's Flute'. To your right is a hidden save spot. Continue right and go up 
the stairs. In the next area continue left into the next area. Continue right 
and you'll face another Shrine Guardian.

   O=======================================================================O
   [ B O S S           Tiamat | HP: 59,494 | AP: 10 | Level: 72            ]
   O=======================================================================O
   [ Easy boss here. PRetty much repeat the same strategy for this one as  ]
   [ the one you used for Marilis. Except use Vivi instead of Amarant      ]
   [ because Vivi's Flare spell will be very handy for this fight. Heal    ]
   [ when needed and Tiamat will be down in no time.                       ]

   [ --------------------------------------------------------------------- ]
   [                      Spoils:  Wing Edge, Phoenix Down                 ]
   O=======================================================================O

After the battle you'll find Amarant's ultimate weapon 'Rune Claws' in the 
bottom left of the screen. Keep going north and following the trail until your
in an area with a waterfall and a save sphere. Use a tent if needed and save. 
Go through the waterfall and a small cutscene occurs. In this area there's an 
optional boss to fight. If you want to fight him go straight and go behind the 
rock formation to your right. Keep clicking the 'X' button until a Mysterious 
Voice calls out to you, choose not to leave and you'll be thrown into an easy 
boss fight. (If you choose not to fight then keep going straight, though I 
highly recommend that you do.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Optional Boss: Hades 
HP: 55,535 | AP: 30 | Level: 92
Steal: Reflect Ring, Running Shoes, Battle Boots
Spoils: Elixir
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

People babble on saying that he's "Sooo Tough" or that he's tougher then the 
final boss, but he's really VERY easy. Your party should consist of Zidane, 
Eiko, Steiner, and Amarant. All you have to worry about is his Mustard Bomb and
 Doomsday spells. Mustard Bomb will put the heat status effect on one off your 
characters so be sure to equip all your characters with Body Temp. Doomsday 
will just take on of your characters HP down to 1. So be sure to have Eiko on 
hand to cast Curaga on that character. Make Zidane attack normally, Amarant 
should throw Wing Edges at him whenever it's his turn and Steiner should always
cast Shock on him. Hades likes to cast reflect on himself so be careful of 
that, and don't worry, Steiners Shock spell is not effected by Reflect. After a
few turns Hades will fall like a brick wall.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the battle Hades opens up a Synth Shop where you can Synth some nifty 
stuff, including a Pumice from two Pumice Pieces, which teaches Dagger the 
ability to summon the Eidolon Ark. After your done with Hades continue north 
and up the stairs.

In this area continue left up the stairs and you'll encounter yet another 
Shrine Guardian.

   O=======================================================================O

After the battle follow the trail. In the next room is another hidden save 
sphere at the top left of the corner. Head left up the steps and climb the 
ladder in the next area. To your left you'll find Vivi's ultimate weapon 'Mace
of Zeus'. Climb up the ladder and follow the path. After trekking across space 
you'll be in a boss fight with final Shrine Guardian.

   O=======================================================================O
   [ B O S S            Lich | HP: 60,000 | AP: 10 | Level: 72             ]

   [ when needed. His Quake spell will do about 1,000-2,000 damage to      ]
   [ everyone in the party. So be ready with a Cura or Curaga spell.       ]

   O=======================================================================O

Keep walking the path and you'll find yourself on a crystal path. Follow the 
path until you hit a save sphere. Save here and use a tent if needed and head 
through the green portal light in front of the sphere. Here you'll find Kuja. 
After some talk Deathguise attacks you.

   O=======================================================================O
   [ B O S S         Deathguise | HP: 55,535 | AP: 00 | Level: 74          ]
   O=======================================================================O
   [ Yet another boss fight. Just attack normally and heal necessary. The  ]
   [ only attack of his to worry about is his Tail Spin which will do      ]
   [ 800 damage to every party member. Just use a Cura when that happens.  ]

   O=======================================================================O

After the battle go back to the save sphere in the previous area to save and 
use a tent or two. Then go back to where you fought Deathguise and walk up a 
little bit where you see Kuja. Once you approach him you exchange a few words 
then you get into a boss battle.

   O=======================================================================O
   [ B O S S        Trance Kuja | HP: 55,535 | AP: 00 | Level: 76          ]
   O=======================================================================O
   [ Trance Kuja is a pretty tough boss. He likes to cast Reflect on       ]
   [ himself so it's best not to have Vivi in your party. You could use    ]
   [ Eiko's Dispel but you need her open to heal your party. Have Zidane   ]
   [ attack normally, Amarant should be throwing Wing Edges, have Steiner  ]
   [ cast Shock on Kuja, and Eiko should stand back to heal everyone when  ]
   [ needed. Kuja also casts Curaga on himself from time to time, so kill  ]
   [ him as fast as you can. I'd also recommend that you have the          ]
   [ Auto-Haste ability equipped to all members in your party as well as   ]
   [ Half MP equipped to all your White Mages.                             ]
   [ --------------------------------------------------------------------- ]

   O=======================================================================O

After the battle Kuja freaks out and casts Ultima on the party, nearly killing 
everyone. Everyone falls down into the depth below and a cutscene occurs. After
the cutscene you get to choose your party for the final showdown with Necron. 
Your party should have Zidane, Eiko, Vivi and Steiner. An alternate party 
should have Amarant instead of Vivi. Make sure your White Mage/Black Mage has 
Half MP equipped and Zidane/Steiner/Amarant have MP Attack equipped. Also a 
good idea is to equip everyone with abilities that guard against different 
status abilities like poison, petrify, darkness, stop, etc. Everyone should 
also have Auto-Haste equipped. After your done you have to fight the final 
boss, Necron.

   O=======================================================================O
   [ B O S S           Necron | HP: 54,100 | AP: 00 | Level: 69            ]
   O=======================================================================O
   [ Necron is one bad mofo. He has black magic spells like Thundaga and   ]
   [ Blizzaga at his dispoal and a spell called Grand Cross which inflicts ]
   [ random status effects on your party. Necron also has other attacks    ]
   [ like Neutron Ring which deals thousands of damage points to your      ]
   [ whole party. He also likes to cast Protect and Shell on your party.   ]
   [ Which just makes the battle drag on even longer. Have Zidane attack   ]
   [ normally while Amarant throws Wing Edges and Steiner casts Shock on   ]
   [ Necron. Eiko should always be ready to heal the party. Necron can     ]
   [ attack twice per turn so keep that in mind. When he casts Grand Cross ]
   [ and Eiko's Esuna ability doesn't cure a member of some ailment then   ]
   [ use a remedy or some other healing item to rid that character of the  ]
   [ status effect. Keep a cool head during this fight and try not to get  ]
   [ to pissed off. He can be very tough if your not properly prepared.    ]
   [ --------------------------------------------------------------------- ]
   [                           Steal:  Elixir                              ]

   O=======================================================================O

After the battle just sit back and watch the great ending FMVs and Cutscenes. 
                               
                               Congratulations! 
                          You beat Final Fantasy IX!

                    I. About The Sidequests Section | (SQ001)
===============================================================================

Final Fantasy IX has many sidequests for you to partake in. Now they're not
absolutely necessary, but doing these can get you many wonderful items. Plus
doing a lot of these Sidequests are just plain fun. So it's your choice whether
or not you want to do them. If you are choosing to do them, then this section
will help you in completing them.

===============================================================================
                         a. Chocobo Hot & Cold | (SQ002)
===============================================================================

When you leave Lindblum's Dragon's Gate, you can keep heading east over to
reach the Chocobo's Forest. This is where you meet the moogle Mene and his pal 
Choco. They need your help in order to get to Chocobo Paradise.

Each time you pay Mene 60 Gil, you get 60 seconds to search the Chocobo Forest 
for valuable items and Gil. To search, ride Choco around the area and press the
Square button to dig. Choco will let out a "Kweh" sound each time you dig to 
indicate how close or how far you are from a buried item. Choco makes a variety
of sounds, each with its own meaning. Here's what they mean:

            O=====================================================O
            | Noise           What It Means                       |
            +-----------------------------------------------------+
            | Kweh            No treasure nearby                  |
            | Kweh!?          Your getting closer to the treasure |
            | Kwehhh!?        You're very close to the treasure   |
            O=====================================================O

When Choco screams "K-KWEHHH!!!" (All in caps), you have struck the spot where 
an item is buried. Different items are buried at different depths; obviously, 
the better items are deeper down and take longer to dig out.

For each item or amount of Gil you find, you receive points. If you find four 
items in one sixty-second game, Mene will add 10 seconds to the clock and 
double your points for each item found thereafter. If you dig up two items 
within five seconds of one another, you receive additional bonus points. 
Choco's beak level will increase occasionally, depending on the total number of
points you've earned. As Choco improves, finding items and digging them up 
become much easier and faster.

There are certain items buried deep beneath the ground in the forest called 
Chocographs. Chocographs are items that provide clues to the whereabouts of 
buried treasure that Choco can dig up on the World Map. During your first visit
to the Chocobo Forest, you may find the first Chocograph within 3 or 4 games. 
The first Chocograph, labeled "Streamside," lets you dig up a treasure chest 
buried on the beach near the river just outside the Chocobo Forest. 

To use a Chocograph to find buried treasure, leave the Chocobo Forest riding 
Choco. Press the Triangle button to open the Chocograph menu, select the 
treasure you want to search for, and exit the menu. Now toggle the Select 
button until the mini-map appears in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.
The picture of the treasure's location should appear just above the mini-map. 
Ride Choco to that location and begin searching for the treasure by pressing 
the Square button. Choco will make similar sounds as in the "Chocobo Hot and 
Cold Game" to indicate the proximity of the treasure.

A Chocograph also lists the skills your Chocobo must possess in order to find 
that treasure. The Chocograph will appear grayed out on the menu until Choco 
has the proper abilities to find it.

                           b. Mognet Central | (SQ003)
===============================================================================

On your way through Esto Gaza to Mount Gulug, delivering a letter to Mogrika 
the moogle causes her to indicate that Mognet is shutting down because of an 
accident. From this point on, most of the moogles will not have any letters to 
deliver and won't ask you to deliver any due to problems at the home office, 
Mognet Central. 

You can reach Mognet Central with a light-blue chocobo (REEF chocobo) on Disc 
3. On the east side of this island, you can find a crack in the mountain. Feed 
Choco a Dead Pepper to make him open the crack, revealing Mognet Central. 

Inside, the moogle Artemicion confesses that he used too much of a certain 
"thing" to make his fur glossy, and there wasn't enough left to use on the 
machine that keeps Mognet running. Leave Mognet Central and travel south to 
Alexandria. Then speak to Kupo at the bell tower ruins, and he'll give you a 
letter to Atla. Thus begins a chain of letters that MUST be delivered from 
moogle to moogle in order to revive the Mognet. Although the moogles tell you 
which moogle to deliver to, they don't mention where that moogle is located! 

Atla is the moogle at Burmecia. Return there now and deliver the letter. Atla 
wants you to take a letter to Mogryo, the moogle standing outside the chocobo 
farm at the Black Mage Village. Mogryo has a letter for Kumool. Return to 
Ipsen's Castle and exchange letters with Kumool in the courtyard. You receive a
letter for Mois, the moogle from the Ice Cavern, in return. 

However, the Ice Cavern is now blocked by roots that have grown over each 
entrance. Mois has moved to Qu's Marsh on the Mist Continent, and now stands 
outside the former entrance to Fossil Roo. Make sure you have Quina in your 
party, or else you won't have access to Fossil Roo. Mois has a letter for 
Noggy, the moogle at Daguerreo. Noggy, in turn, sends you back to Kupo in 
Alexandria with a final letter. 

When Kupo reads the letter, you'll notice that it says someone in Alexandria 
has the item needed. Kupo isn't any help, but we'll save you the trouble! 

Talk to Ruby in the Alexandria Mini-Theater, and she immediately hands over 
some of her hair gel, otherwise known as Superslick. Return to Mognet Central 
and turn over the item to Artemicion. The Mognet gets back to business, and you
receive a Protect Ring for helping restore Mognet.

===============================================================================
                         c. Mr. Morrid's Coffee | (SQ004)
===============================================================================

After leaving the Ice Cavern, head to the Observatory Mountain before going 
into Dali. There's an elderly fellow named Morrid  inside the hut, who's just 
dying for a good cup of java. Find the three coffees at different locations in 
the world and return to Observatory Mountain with them, before the end of Disc 
3 and Mr. Morrid will reward you. Here are the locations of the three coffees: 

Moccha Coffee - At the South Gate entrance near the Chocobo Forest
Kirman Coffee - On Eiko's Kitchen in Madain Sari
Burman Coffee - This one is a little harder to get, however, so keep reading!

To get the Burman Coffee, Zidane must leave Treno during the card tournament 
and head through South Gate to Dali. The mayor is not at home at this time, so 
search his house for his key. When you enter his house, Zidane spots the 
mayor's son napping on the sofa in the middle of the room. If Zidane moves to 
fast, he'll wake the boy up and have to start the search over again. 

Start by searching the mayor's desk. You will find the Mini-Brahne here. Search
the desk two more times until the boy says "Zzzz." Move to the stove and search
it to find the Mayor's Key and then leave. Go to the locked door in the 
windmill and use the key to open it. Move around the chocobo pen to the right 
side, where a hidden treasure chest contains 30,000 Gil. Check the same chest 
again to find the Burman Coffee. Now return to Observatory Mountain and give 
the three coffees to Morrid. He promises to send you the Mini-Prima Vista model
ship. The next time you're in Lindblum, return to the Tantalus hideout to find
it sitting on the floor near the bed. Again, you must get the Burman Coffee 
during the card tournament in Treno. Otherwise, it will be too late. You can 
visit Morrid to complete the side quest any time before visiting Terra.

                            d.  Stellazio | (SQ005)
===============================================================================
During the game you can find Zodiac Coins/Stellatzios in many places. If you 
give them to Queen Stella in Treno, she'll give you some items in exchange. 
Adding to this, if you give her twelve Stellatzios, she'll tell you about the 
13th Stellazio.

                               e. Ozma | (SQ006)
===============================================================================

Ozma is the toughest boss in the entire game. He's even more powerful then
Necron. He resides in the Eidolon Grave in the back of Chocobo's Air Garden. 
First you need to feed all the Friendly Monsters the specific gem they ask for.
Then you need to get Choco the sky ability which turns him gold. You then go up
to the Air Garden and examine the shrine in the back. Mene warns you that 
something dangerous is living there and you get a few chances to back out or 
not. I won't be adding a "How to defeat Ozma" guide here since there are many 
fine guides on GameFAQs that will help you to defeat Ozma. But I will add a 
Friendly Monsters guide.

===============================================================================
                           Friendly Monsters | (SQ007)
===============================================================================

Occasionally when a random encounter is triggered, you may notice the battle 
music has changed from the default to something more calm and sweet. This is 
basically your cue to know you're in a battle against a "friendly monster." 
The creature won't attack you, but will instead ask for an item. If you agree 
to give them the items, you'll receive a reward of AP and an item or two. All
of these "friendly monsters" can be found throughout the world of Final Fantasy
IX.

|                      | Tree                       |           | Rosetta Ring|
+----------------------+----------------------------+-----------+-------------+

Fighting the monsters in the order provided is strongly suggested; the rewards 
from the previous monster will help fulfill the requests for the next 
encounter. Also note that the Friendly Yan can not be "defeated" until you 
finish the requests from the other eight friendly monsters, he'll just run 
away.

So what do you get for supplying these friendly monsters with all these gifts?
The AP is quite decent (be sure to equip Ability Up before the fights). Apart 
from that, once the quest is completed you'll gain a huge bonus for when you 
decide to fight Ozma: your range will be increased, so your physical attacks 
will be able to reach him. 

===============================================================================
                       f. Treasure Hunting Rank | (SQ008)
===============================================================================

The true identity of the four-armed bandit is revealed after you've collected 
enough treasures to gain a Treasure Hunting Rank of "S." You can view your rank
at any time by speaking to the Four-armed Man or the woman at the Treno Inn. 
Once you reach Rank S, go speak to the Four-armed Man in Daguerreo. This is the
same person who has all the rare airship cards, if you challenge him to a card 
game. When he finds out that you're a Rank S treasure hunter, he becomes 
intimidated and abruptly runs out. Follow him to the entrance, and he will tell
you his true identity and hand you the Rank S Award Key Item. Treasure Hunter 
Ranking is determined by a point system: 

1 point for every chest, searched Field icon, and item gained in event 
        sequence, and every rare item purchased in the Treno Auction House 
        (with the exception of Magical Fingertip and Pearl Rouge).

2 points for every chest found on the World Map while riding Choco. No points 
        are awarded for items found while digging in the "Chocobo Hot and Cold"
        game or bought from Stiltzkin. 

===============================================================================
                            Mini-Figurines | (SQ009)
===============================================================================

There are four figurines scattered through the game. Collecting all of them 
will increase your Treasure Hunting Rank. You'll need to complete the Mr. 
Morrid's Coffee section to find two of the four figurines.

 O===========================================================================O
 | Figurine         | Location                                               |
 O===========================================================================O
 | Mini-Cid         | Purchase from Treno Auction House                      |
 +------------------+--------------------------------------------------------+
 | Mini-Burmecia    | Inside the Tantalus Troupe's hide-out in Lindblum      |
 +------------------+--------------------------------------------------------+
 | Mini-Brahne      | Inside Mayor's Office during the Treno Card Tournament |
 +------------------+--------------------------------------------------------+
 | Mini-Prima Vista | Complete the Mr. Morrid's Coffee Quest and it will be  |
 |                  |   delivered to the Tantalus hide-out                   |

                   II. About The Mini-Games Section | (MG001)
===============================================================================

There are many fun mini-games to be played throughout the world of Final
Fantasy IX. Not only are they fun but you can win some really nice prizes from
playing them. You don't have to play them, but if you want to then this section
will tell you everything you need to know about them.

===============================================================================
                            a. Tetra Master | (MG002)
===============================================================================

Like Final Fantasy VIII's Triple Triad, FF IX's Tetra Master involves two 
players taking turns placing cards onto a grid and trying to capture the other 
player's cards. This time, however, the grid is 4x4 (instead of 3x3), with 
anywhere from 0 to 7 spaces being randomly covered before the game begins. The
game can be very fun, though if your playing for profit such as Gil or Items
then this isn't for you. The only reward you get for playing this mini-game is
the possibility of getting new cars and bragging rights. That's about it.

                                 ~~Gameplay~~
Every card can have up to eight arrows pointing in different directions; note 
that the arrows are not dependent on the picture on the card -- in other words,
it's possible to have one Flan card with two arrows and another Flan card with 
three arrows pointing in completely different directions. These arrows 
determine what happens when one card is placed next to an enemy card.

                          ~~Attack by using Arrows~~
If the two adjacent sides / corners have no arrows, nothing happens. If the 
enemy card has an arrow, but the just-played card does not, nothing happens. If
a card is placed down so that one of its arrows is pointing at an non-arrowed 
side / corner of an enemy card, the enemy card is captured. If a card is placed
down so that one of its arrows is pointing at an arrowed side / corner of an 
enemy card, the two cards "battle." The card that comes.

                             ~~4 Attacking Types~~             
Each card has four letters or numbers on it. The first is its attack power (in
hexademical), the second is its method of attack (P is Physical, M is Magic, 
and X is Auto, meaning the card uses whichever works best), the third is its 
physical defense, and the fourth is its magical defense. When two card battles,
their attack powers are compared; whichever card has the higher attack power 
gets to determine the attack type. (A tie goes to the just-placed card.) Then, 
whichever card has the lower defense for that attack type (physical or magic) 
loses.

In addition, when an enemy card is captured via a "battle," it can then capture
any already-placed cards to which its arrows point -- a combo attack.

                             ~~Level up your card~~
The card may level up only by beating other cards, thats means by flipping them
over to your side.

                                ~~Who has Won?~~
The game ends when all 10 cards have been placed; whoever controls the most 
cards wins. (It's possible to have a draw.) The winner then gets to pick one of
his/her opponent's cards to take; note that you can only select cards that were
under your control at the end of the game. However, if you managed to end up 
with all 10 cards under your control at the end of the game, you score a 
"Perfect" and get to take all of your opponent's cards.

                       ~~Amount of Cards you can carry~~
You may never carry more than 100 cards; if you end up with more than 100 cards
after a game, you have to throw away cards of your choice until you have 100. 
(If you want to get all the cards, this means you have to have exactly one of 
each card.)

                            ~~Tetra Master Rules~~
The rules in Tetra Master remain consistent no matter where you play; unlike 
Triple Triad, there are no varying gameplay or trading rules.

                           b. Frog Catching | (MG003)
===============================================================================

Dotted around Gaia you will find a few places bearing the name Qu's Marsh. One
of them is where you will have met Quina. Entering a marsh with Quina in your
party will prompt he/she/it to ask if it can catch some frogs. Cue a strange
little mini-game!
 
O=============================================================================O
| Location of Marsh   | Description                                           |
O=============================================================================O
| Mist Continent      | West of the Chocobo's Forest after crossing the       |
|                     |   bridge.                                             |
+---------------------+-------------------------------------------------------+
| Outer Continent     | Northeast from the Black Mage Village.                |
+---------------------+-------------------------------------------------------+
| Forgotten Continent | Northern section of the continent. East of Ipsen's    |
|                     |   Castle.                                             |
+---------------------+-------------------------------------------------------+
| Salvage Archipelago | On an island northwest of Daguerreo.                  |
O=============================================================================O

Frogs are safe from Quina's hungry grasp whilst in the water, so wait for one 
to hop out onto the ground nearby and try to grab it, remembering to leave one 
male and one female frog behind so that there can be more to catch when you 
next return to the marsh. Catching varying numbers of frogs will earn you 
rewards from Master Quale. In order to get the final one you must defeat him in
combat.

                     O===================================O
                     | Number of Frogs    | Reward       |

                     | Two Frogs          | Ore          |
                     +--------------------+--------------+

                     | Nine Frogs         | Silk Robe    |
                     +--------------------+--------------+
                     | Fifteen Frogs      | Elixir       |
                     +--------------------+--------------+
                     | Twenty-three Frogs | Silver Fork  |
                     +--------------------+--------------+
                     | Thirty-three Frogs | Bistro Fork  |

                           c. Ragtime Mouse | (MG004)
===============================================================================

While wandering in the forests, you may end up in another kind of "special" 
random encounter. However, this will be different from the friendly monster 
encounters. When you encounter the Ragtime Mouse, he'll actually ask you 
questions. If you attack him, he'll run away. 

You'll receive a percentage ranking based on the number of questions you 
answer correctly. The higher the percentage, the more gil you'll receive. If 
you answer all 16 questions correctly, you'll receive a Protect Ring, 22,852 
EXP, and 59,630 Gil. Below are the correct answers to all 16 questions:

===============================================================================
                          d. Racing Hippaul | (MG005)
===============================================================================

When you're in Alexandria with Vivi during disc three, you'll be able to 
encounter Hippaul. Hippaul, along with his mother, can be found on the main 
street in Alexandria. Talk with his mother, and she'll mention that she wants 
her son to lose some weight- this is where you come in. You'll have to race 
with Hippaul. The more you race him, the higher his level will increase. Every
10 levels you'll receive a card. You can continue racing after level 80, but 
you won't receive any kind of benefits.

                   O======================================O
                   | Hippaul's Level |       Reward       |

===============================================================================
                         e. Jump Rope King | (MG006)
===============================================================================

The jump rope mini-game in Alexandria will probably be the first mini-game that
you'll end up playing in Final Fantasy 9. The game itself is pretty simple, but
to reach the level of jumps required for the best prizes you may need a bit of 
practice. 

Vivi will move over the rope. Hit X to begin. A "!" will appear above Vivi's 
head. Each time this happens, hit X to jump.

The speed you'll need to hit X at will change as you progress through the 
mini-game.

                O=============================================O
                | Number of Jumps | Speed                     |

*******************************************************************************
                              8.  S E C R E T S
*******************************************************************************

The game holds many secrets just waiting for you, the player, to discover them.
This section will help you find all of those little secrets to make your
gaming experience a more memorable one.

===============================================================================
                    a. Secret of The Eidolon Wall | (SEC01)
===============================================================================

One of the big secrets of the game is that Princess Garnet's true name is 
engraved on the Eidolon Wall at Madain Sari. There is a very complicated way 
to reveal the truth at the beginning of Disc 4. 

First, form a party with Dagger and visit Lani who is standing on Eiko's back 
porch. Upon arriving Lani will run away. Exit the village and return with 
anyone except Dagger or Amarant and talk to Lani twice. Read the message and go
to the Eidolon Wall. Walk clockwise from the entrance (heading to the right) 
until you return to the entrance. Move just past the "!" until you hear a 
chime. Then walk counterclockwise back to the entrance, just past the "!" 
again. Repeat this 9 times, going back and forth. Make sure you hear a chime 
each time. On the ninth round, your HP/MP will be recovered and all status 
abnormalities removed. 

Now read the paintings. You can read them in any order, as long as you read 
them all. A whole slew of extra messages appear this time. At the end, return 
to the Ifrit drawing and look for an extra message, revealing Dagger's true 
name.

===============================================================================
                        b. The Beaches Secret | (SEC02)
===============================================================================

After you got all the 24 Chocographs, 5 treasures from cracks, 4 treasures from
bubbles and Ultima Weapon, and you've been to Chocobo's aerial garden, go to 
Chocobo's paradise and talk to Fat Chocobo by pushing the square button. (If 
you talk to him in ordinary way (by pushing the circle button) he'll give you 
Fat Chocobo’s card. ) He will tell you to go around all the beaches in the 
world. So let's go around all the beaches. There are 8 beaches in the misty 
continent, 5 in the continent on left bottom, 7 in the continent on right top, 
and 2 in the continent on left top. Push X button on each beach. At the last 
beach you will have a message saying "Now I'm at ease" or something like that. 
After this, if you push X button on a beach, your HP & MP will be full, and 
abnormal statuses will be healed.

===============================================================================
                      c. Feed The Moogle Family | (SEC03)
===============================================================================

Each time you receive a Kupo Nut for delivering mail between the moogles, 
return to Gizamaluke’s Grotto and feed it to the father of the moogle family. 
You'll receive a random item in return. During the Chocograph treasure hunt, 
one of the stashes contains a full set of Hawaiian gear, but only 7 Aloha 
T-shirts. That leaves one of your characters out of the luau! Return to 
Gizamaluke’s Grotto with a Kupo Nut during Disc 4 and the moogle gives you the 
8th Aloha T-Shirt.

===============================================================================
                            d. Excalibur II | (SEC04)
===============================================================================

Here's a challenge for you true gamers: play Final Fantasy IX again and reach 
the Terrace in Memoria within 12 game hours. You can find the Excalibur II on 
the Terrace in a corner to the right. This is the most powerful weapon in the 
game! There are guides about how to go about this on GameFAQs.

===============================================================================
                        e. Carbuncle's New Skills | (SEC05)
===============================================================================

Carbuncle has other skills when equipped with the correct gemstones, new 
effects can be summoned. Fenrir also has an additional skill with this method.

Emerald + Carbuncle = Emerald Light (All Haste)
Diamond + Carbuncle = Dia Light (All Banish)
Moonstone + Carbuncle = Pearl Light (All Shield)
Virgin's Hope+ Fenrir = 1000 Year Gust

===============================================================================
                              f. Blackjack | (SEC06)
===============================================================================

After finishing the game, let the credits roll until the phrase "The End" 
appears. While it's on-screen, enter the following sequence of buttons on your
controller to access the hidden card game "Blackjack": R2, L1, R2, R2, Up, X, 
Right, Circle, Down, Triangle, L2, R1, R2, L1, Square, Square, and Start. The 
dealer deals out of two decks and stands on 17, and you begin the game with a 
bankroll of 1,000.
