Section III: Disc One
This section contains instructions on how to get through disc one.

    Segment 1: The Introduction
You start on a ship, where you find out about a plan to kidnap the princess of
Alexandria.  After a few movies and dialogue, you are no longer Zidane any more.
You find yourself as a little black mage named Vivi.

   1. Show the ticket to the man at the ticket booth.
   2. Find out how to play 'The Card Game.'
   3. Go with the rat kid to see the concert.

    Segment 2: The Wreck/Evil Forest
You find your ship, the Prima Vista, crashed in a forest.  To make things worse,
Princess Garnet is missing.  After watching some scenes, the true part of Final
Fantasy IX begins.

    1. Find Princess Garnet.
    2. Defeat the Prison Cage twice.
    3. Talk to Vivi and see Zidane's flashback.
    4. Get Baku's permission to look for Garnet.
    5. Leave the ship after Steiner and Vivi join.
    6. Defeat Plant Brain.
    7. Escape the Evil Forest.

Start out by going towards the bottom of the screen and through part of the
forest. After that, you will encounter the monster that has Garnet entrapped.
Steiner is there, waiting to help you.

          Boss: Prison Cage (1st time)
At the beginning of the battle, you go into a trance.  Your power will be
increased while you have the purple glow around you.  Steiner and Zidane tell
you a bit about trances.
When attacking the Prison Cage, be sure you attack the bottom of the creature,
not the top.  Attacking the bottom hurts the monster, while attacking the top
hurts Garnet.  You can't take your time defeating the Prison Cage, because he
uses his spell 'Absorb' to take HP away from Garnet.  When Garnet dies, you lose
the fight.  After the Prison Cage casts the first 'Absorb,' you are advised to
heal Garnet.  Using a potion on Garnet will be fine.  If you've taken the time
to get your character to level 3, this battle will be a breeze.  Otherwise, you
might have to use a few more potions on Garnet before the battle is over.

After the battle and some dialogue, the Prison Cage strikes again.

          Boss: Prison Cage (2nd time)
This time it's Vivi that got trapped.  At the beginning of the fight, he casts a
spell on the Prison Cage.
Use about the same strategies as described in the battle for the first time
beating the Prison Cage.  This time it's easier since Vivi is casting spells at
the Prison Cage.

After the battle, a scene occurs, then the screen appears on Vivi lying in a
bed, with Blank watching over him.  You'll also see Steiner's henchman pushing
him around.  Next, you'll see Zidane talking to his boss, who refuses to let
anyone search for Garnet.
    When you leave the room that the boss is in, you will be able to see three
ATEs (Active Time Events).  One shows what Steiner is doing in his room.
Another shows Ruby left in the bar in Alexandria.  The third can only occur
after the one with Steiner.  It shows Cinna frantically trying to find his
Garnet doll.
    Go down to the room where Vivi is sleeping.  Talk to him.  After the
dialogue is finished, walk out of the room to see Zidane's flashback.
Afterwards, choose to go find Garnet.  Afterwards, Blank talks to Zidane and
tells him to go talk to the boss.  However, the boss isn't in the room he used
to be in.  He's in a room that is across the hall from the bottom of the
stairway.  Talk to him in his room, and he will grant you permission to go look
for Garnet.  First though, the boss, Baku, challenges you to a fight.

          Boss: Baku
Steal a Hi-Potion from Baku at the beginning of the battle.  It will be a treat
to get a hi-potion this early in the game.  Although Baku taunts you throughout
the battle, he's more bark then he is bite.  You should beat him easily.

    After the battle, talk to Blank.  He will say that he'll unlock the door to
the storage room so you can get Steiner to come with you.  Go to the room where
Steiner is, and he will join you.  Steiner also suggests that you go visit Vivi.
Go talk to Vivi in his room.  Vivi joins you, and you are ready to go look for
Garnet.  Before you leave the ship, Blank talks to you for a while.  He also
gives you a message from Baku about abilities.  After asking Blank how to equip
abilities, you leave the ship.
    Make your way to where you found the Prison Cage.  When you enter this area,
there will be another ATE (Active Time Event) to see.  In this ATE, Baku tells
his orchestra that they are a good job, and that they will be leaving soon.
    Continue beyond the area where you fought the Prison Cage.  After another
area, you'll see a moogle that hides in a tree stump when he sees you.  After
Zidane examines the spring, you automatically view an ATE (Active Time Event).
In this ATE, you see a quick dialogue between Blank and Baku.
    Despite the fact that it's in the tree stump, the moogle still is just like
a normal moogle.  Go past the spring to the next area.  At the end of that area,
you will see a quick scene.  Proceed through the next area.  Upon entering the
next area, you'll run into a plant monster that is keeping Princess Garnet

          Boss: Plant Brain
Fire attacks, like Vivi's 'Fire' black magic or Steiner's 'Fire' sword magic,
work very well on this boss.  A while into the combat, Blank arrives to help.
After Blank arrives, the Plant Brain might use it's devastating attack called
'Thunder.'  Don't be surprised if this attack wipes out part of your party.
Blank, the most likely to survive this attack, can deal big damage to the Plant

    After some dialogue, more problems arise, as small plant monsters start
chasing after Zidane and his group.  Outrun the monsters as they try to chase
you out.  After a few leaps of faith, you'll become surrounded, and go into
battle with four Plant Spiders.  The Plant Spiders are weak, Blank or Steiner
could knock them out in one blow.  Proceed to the next area after you kill the
Plant Spiders, where Zidane stops and converses with Blank.  Then, watch a movie
that explains what Zidane meant by "the entire forest is coming after us."
Blank throws a letter as he is destroyed by a Plant Spider, and you witness the
entire forest turn into stone.
    Steiner accuses Zidane that it's all his fault at their camp just outside
the forest, and Garnet comes into consciousness again.  After some more
dialogue, Vivi and Zidane take a rest.  After that, Zidane states that sometime
he might come back and be able to save Blank.  Zidane then sets off for a cavern
south of their camp.  Before you leave though, Monty the moogle has to teach you
some basics.  And, he teaches them to you in the form of an ATE (Active Time
Event).  After the lesson, Monty gives you the Moogle's Flute.  This allows you
to call a Save Moogle on the world map.

    Segment 3: The Ice Cavern
   You now are on the world map.  Proceed south to get to the cave you're
supposed to go to.  Slightly south on the mountain you will find the Ice Cavern.

      1. Destroy the strange wall.
      2. Rescue the frozen moogle.
      3. Defeat Black Waltz 1 and Sealion.
      4. Get out of the cave.

    As you enter the Ice Cavern, your party members will discuss myths and
legends about the Ice Cavern.  Go to the second area of the Ice Cavern, jumping
up ledges when you need to.  GO to the right of the second area, and have Zidane
examine the strange wall.  Vivi will break down the wall with his magic.
    Continue through the cave until you come to a fork in the road.  Take a
left.  Step up to the strange frozen figure and press confirm.  Vivi will melt
the ice surrounding the Save Moogle, and you will go into another ATE (Active
Time Event), where you learn more about the game.
    Now go back to the fork and take the right path.  All of your characters
will, for some reason, fall asleep.  Later, you Zidane waking up.  Go to the
upper-right of the screen and into the next area.  This is where Zidane finds
who is causing the blizzard...

          Boss: Black Waltz 1 and Sealion
    At the beginning of the battle, Black Waltz 1 calls the Sealion to help him.
In this battle, you're going alone against these guys.  As you attack the
Sealion, Black Waltz 1 heals him with blizzard and taunts you.  Keep attacking,
using potions when necessary.  If you need extra potions, just steal from
enemies a little more often.  Since Black Waltz 1 keeps healing Sealion, focus
all of your attacks on Black Waltz 1 until he dies.  As you attack the Sealion,
keep yourself healed, because he can attack multiple times occasionally.
Slowly, the Sealion's heart changes color.  It goes to yellow, then to purple.
When the Sealion's heart turns purple, it means that he is very close to death.
But, it also means that he will probably cast 'Tsunami' as soon as possible.
Survive 'Tsunami,' and you can beat the Sealion with about three more attacks.

    After the battle, Zidane goes back to check on his group.  They're just
getting up as Zidane greets them.  You probably go back to the Save Moogle and
save right now.  Go up the cliff where you fought Black Waltz 1.  At the top,
you finally leave the Mist.
    Before you go down to the village, Garnet needs a new identity.  You choose
a name for her.  Then you go down into the village.  You then are back on the
world map.

    Segment 4: Village of Dali

    Go southeast on the world map, to a village called Dali.  Everyone goes into
the inn and rests after a conversation, where Zidane promises to get Garnet, or
Dagger, as she's called now, to Lindblum.
    When you wake up, there are two ATEs (Active Time Events) you can see.  One
shows what Vivi is doing.  The other shows what Dagger is doing.  When you walk
out of the inn, there's another ATE (Active Time Event) to see.  This shows what
is happening in the inn.

      1. Talk to Vivi.
      2. Find Dagger in the equipment store.
      3. Get Dagger to join you.
      4. Find the underground passageway.
      5. Hide in the machine.
      6. Defeat Black Waltz 2.
      7. Board the cargo ship.

    Since this is the first town you are able to visit, you'll probably want to
go in the shop right across the street and buy some new equipment.  You'll also
want to visit the other shop up the road and stock up on potions and other
    After entering some buildings, another ATE (Active Time Event) will be
available.  This shows what Dagger is doing.
    You can go talk to Vivi by the windmill now.  He says that he will go back
to the inn.
    Now another ATE (Active Time Event) can be seen.  It shows what is happening
in the inn.
    If you go look through the window of the inn, you'll see that Vivi is not in
the inn.  Forget Vivi for now.  Go into the equipment shop to find Dagger.
Dagger then returns to the room in the inn.
    If you get bored, you can always challenge some residents to a game of
cards, or "Tetra Master."  The equipment shop owner will play with you.
    You won't be able to find Steiner yet, but go talk to the person working at
the medicine shop.  Then go back to the inn and talk to Dagger.  You'll see an
ATE (Active Time Event) that shows what Steiner is doing at the moment.  After
the ATE, Zidane suggests you go look for Vivi.
    Walk up to where the windmill is.  Zidane will stop when you're halfway
there.  Go up and examine the place where Vivi was standing.  After some
conversation, you'll find a place where you can talk to Vivi.
    Walk inside the mayor's house (the one with the sun over it) and examine the
well.  Then go to the house left of the windmill.  There's a metal dome on the
ground.  Examine it and go down.  You'll be underground now.  Go to the next
area, where you'll hear a dialogue between two men.  They'll be pushing around
poor Vivi.
    After a conversation with Dagger, go further into the tunnel.  You'll find a
moogle inside the barrel in the area after the area that had the chocobo in it.
Go further, and you'll come to a room where you hear Vivi crying.  He's caged up
in a box, and Zidane will get him out of the box.  Vivi now joins.
    There's a door in the room that has mist coming through it.  If you open it,
three ghosts will attack you.  Through the door are a few treasure chests, and a
    Examine the machine in the main room.  Press X (confirm) when you go through
the door that mist is coming out of.  You've now examined both of the machines.
    In the main room, go to the bottom of the screen.  On the right, there will
be another place you can go to.  In this room, you'll see a poor chocobo being
tortured.  You also can examine another machine in the back of the room.  Walk
down the hall and Zidane will stop to examine something.  Continue down the hall
when he's done.
    In the next room, you see what the true purpose of this machine is.  As you
hide, you're put into crates.  You then see what old Rusty is up to.  You'll be
controlling Steiner now.  Go down from the observatory and follow the man into
his house.  Talk to him inside his house.  Go down from the area outside of the
house and you'll see the cargo ship.  As Steiner examines the barrel, choose
either option.  Zidane will come out of it.  After some dialogue, a monster that
looks like an adult flying Vivi approaches you.  This person is Black Waltz 2.

          Boss: Black Waltz 2
    This boss battle will be the hardest yet.  Use magic and ethers.  The
advantage you have is that Black Waltz 2 does not attack Dagger.  Have Dagger
heal your party and use items on them while your other members attack Black
Waltz 2.  Even the spells Black Waltz 2 casts that would normally affect all
party members don't touch Dagger.  Cure the entire party with Dagger (use R1 to
select all party members while choosing a target) and you should be able to
defeat Black Waltz 2.

    After the battle and some dialogue, you can either leave now or wait to
leave.  If you choose to wait to leave, go to the right side of the small garden
when you're ready to leave.
    Before you leave, there's a bit of dialogue.  There's also some dialogue
when you get on the airship.

    Segment 5: Journey to Lindblum

    Now you're on the cargo ship, flying through the air.

      1. Defeat Black Waltz 3.
      2. Get to Lindblum.

    As you walk through the corridor, you can look at several things along the
way.  Make your way to the ladder.  Climb up it and you'll see Steiner lying on
deck at the top.  Go talk to Steiner.  Don't worry about his threats.  Walk into
the room on the left.  Watch a movie, and then see Zidane steering the cargo
    You now see Dagger and Vivi coming up onto the deck, but you see a figure
fly onto the boat and stop Vivi.  He's who you expected: Black Waltz 3.  After a
bit of dialogue, you'll watch another movie.  Then, after some dialogue, you
fight the third Black Waltz.

          Boss: Black Waltz 3
    At the beginning of the battle, Vivi automatically goes into a trance.  In
his trance, Vivi can cast two spells at a time.  Use Vivi's magic at the
beginning of the battle, when he's in his trance.  Actually, use all magic at
the beginning of the battle.  By the time Vivi's trance wears off, Black Waltz 3
should be dead.

    After the battle, you see a scene involving Zorn and Thorn.  You then see
some dialogue, watch a movie, listen to some more dialogue, and see yet another
movie.  You then arrive in Lindblum.

    Segment 6: Lindblum

    After the second movie ends, you arrive in Lindblum.

      1. Get to the elevator.
      2. Meet with Regent Cid.
      3. Get to Tantalus's hideout.
      4. Find Dagger at the top of Lindblum Castle.
      5. Participate in the festival.

    After some dialogue, you can walk around freely.  It's a big place, so feel
free to explore.
    To continue, go across the hallway from the room you arrived in.  You'll be
on an elevator.  Minister Artania will be waiting for you.  He will talk to you
as you ride the elevator up.  When you arrive at the top floor, you will find
that Regent Cid has been transformed into an oglop.  The minister will explain
to you.
    After that, you go have lunch at a local restaurant.  You meet two old
friends, Freya and Bobo, while you're there.  You then rest at the inn.
    The game shows Dagger's conversation with her Uncle Cid.  It includes about
why Tantalus kidnapped her and more on why he turned into an oglop.
    You wake up in the inn as Zidane.  Vivi greets you.  After Vivi leaves,
another ATE (Active Time Event) initiates.  This ATE is another lesson from
    You now are free to move around the town.  When you walk out of the inn,
you'll be able to see an ATE (Active Time Event) about what Steiner is doing.
If you walk in the building across the street, you'll see another ATE (Active
Time Event) on how Vivi is doing.  While you're in the town, you can find out
about the Festival of the Hunt, play a game or two of Tetra Master, or gain
levels outside of town.
    Eventually, you'll want to get take the air cab to the theatre division.
When you leave the air cab station in the theatre division, you'll be able to
see an ATE (Active Time Event) of how Steiner is doing.  Go down the stairs to
the left, and go into the first building you come to.  This is Zidane's hideout.
    In his hideout, Zidane wonders about how Dagger is doing.  You then see an
ATE (Active Time Event) of what Dagger is doing.  When the ATE ends, two kids
run into your hideout.  They tell you that you should go see Dagger.
    As you walk outside, you can view another ATE (Active Time Event).  This
shows how your boss Baku and his group are doing.  Yes, the people you abandoned
at the beginning of the game escaped from the Evil Forest.
    Go back to the air cab station.  Take the air cab to Lindblum Castle.  Make
your way to the guest room, where Dagger was.  Instead, you'll find Steiner
there, grouchy, as usual.  Walk out of the guest room.  Walk into the room to
the left of the screen.
    If you try to go to the elevator, you'll be stopped.  Go to the room on the
right and talk to the sleeping soldier on the couch on the level below.  You'll
wake him up, then steal his uniform.  You now can get on the elevator.
    You'll automatically go to the top floor.  When you arrive on the top floor,
you'll be Zidane again.  Turn left around the corner and go up the stairs.  Keep
going up stairs until you get to the top of the castle, where you'll watch a
movie.  After the movie, you'll look through the telescope.  Press X (confirm)
whenever you see a question mark on the screen.  Once Zidane gives you his
thoughts on everything, Dagger will want a look.
    After some dialogue, you'll see what old Steiner is up to.  You'll also see
how Vivi's doing.  You'll also see what Freya is doing.  Finally, you'll see
what Cid's doing.  Then the screen goes back to Dagger and Zidane.
    You'll see some preparations for the Festival of the Hunt.  Then you see
Zidane getting ready for the festival.  Go up to Mogki the moogle and save your
game.  Go to the air cab station and head over to the theatre district.
    After Dagger and Steiner cheer and finish their talking, you'll arrive at
the theatre district.  Now you start the game, as was described to you in the
rules you learned in the guest room at Lindblum Castle.  Fight as many monsters
as you can, remembering the 12 minute time limit.  If you gained levels outside
of the town, they'll pay off now.  Go to the air cab station and fly to another
district after you beat a few enemies in the theatre district.  Whatever
district you fly to will probably run out of monsters too, so you'll have to go
to the last district.
    If you're leading, eventually you just might run into that rare monster.
Freya will offer her help.

          Boss: Zaghnol
    Just have Freya heal you with potions and just have Zidane attack.  It's
more of a mini-boss then a boss.

    Usually, you only win if you ran into Zaghnol.  No matter who wins, Regent
Cid congratulates you.  As everyone is about to leave, a Burmecian Soldier comes
with urgent news.
    You find out that Burmecia is being invaded by the golems that were being
made in Dali.  After the soldier dies, Regent Cid makes a desperate attempt to
aid Burmecia, since most of the guards were injured in the festival.
    Before you leave, you have a feast where you find out that Dagger put
sleeping medicine in everyone but her and Steiner's dish.  After a discussion,
Dagger and Steiner leave.
    As you wake up, Freya suggests that you go to Gizamaluke's Grotto.  Cid
thinks that you will still be able to catch up with Dagger.

    Segment 7: Gizamaluke's Grotto/South Gate

    The guard by the exit to the castle will tell you that the best way to
Gizamaluke's Grotto is by following the roots popping out of the ground.  Follow
the brown mounds on the ground to make your way to the grotto.

      1. Obtain the Gizamaluke Bells.
      2. Save the moogles in distress.
      3. Obtain the Holy Bell.
      4. Defeat Gizamaluke.

    As you enter the grotto, you see two dead soldiers lying by the entrance.
Go in, and take a right.  A near-dead guard there gives you the Gizamaluke Bell.
Ring the bell to get in the door to the left.  As you enter the next room,
you'll see Zorn and Thorn.  The black mage golems will come after you.
    After defeating the golems, proceed and defeat the next golem to get another
Gizamaluke Bell.  Use the bell to open the big door.  Behind that door is a
giant bell.  In front of the bell: A poor moogle whose husband got trapped under
the bell.  Have Vivi give them his Kupo Nut to save the couple in distress.
There's also a Gizamaluke Bell in a chest under the big bell.
    Behind the bell are two rooms.  In the right one are the two moogles.  If
you go into the room with the two moogles, you'll get the holy bell as you leave
the room.  This bell is the same as the Gizamaluke Bell, except it can open the
door on the left side of the bell.
    As you walk through the door on the left, a dying guard tells you that
Master Gizamaluke has gone crazy.  After that, you fight Gizamaluke.

          Boss: Gizamaluke
    This will be a hard battle.  Early in the battle, steal an elixir from
Gizamaluke.  Heal frequently with potions that you should have stocked up on by
now.  Vivi's 'Slow' spell will work well against the beast.  Use Freya's 'Jump'
command frequently to do lots of damage to Gizamaluke.  Have Zidane use normal
attacks.  Watch out for Gizamaluke's 'Crash' attack, it deals big damage.

    Once you defeat Gizamaluke, you see a scene of Steiner going through the
South Gate.  Now you're controlling Steiner.

      1. Get rid of the short lady.
      2. Get rid of the short man.
      3. Get the Gate Pass.
      4. Depart on the cable car.

    Go talk to the short lady by the ally.  Choose to console her.  Now the
short lady is no longer by the alley.
    Now talk to the short man and answer him.  After he's done talking, go talk
to his worker.  Now go talk to the short man again.  The short man will go away
from the alley now.
    A short guard comes into town.  Just when it looks like you've been caught,
all he's doing is giving you a Gate Pass.  Now just go back to the alley.
    Now you have Dagger in your party.  Go to the top of the stairway and get on
the cable car.

    You now see Zidane and friends back at Gizamaluke's Grotto.  They depart the
grotto, promising to protect Burmecia.

    Segment 8: Burmecia

    You now are wandering on the world map.  Wander for a while, and you'll find
a large, walled city by a mountain.  This is where you want to go.

      1. Find Zorn and Thorn.
      2. Collapse the catwalk.
      3. Get the Protection Bell.
      4. Open the locked door.
      5. Help Kal get out of the castle.
      6. Find Queen Brahne.

    As you enter Burmecia, it is raining as the characters have a conversation.
Once in the town, go to the third area (the first was where the conversation
took place).  You'll see Zorn and Thorn again.  They send two black mages after
    Walk to the right stairway.  Go to the last area you can get to.  Walk
toward the treasure chest.  Before you get there, the catwalk underneath you
    Now go back to outside the house.  Go in the left door.  You now can walk
across the area you previously were not able to.  Now, go through the archway.
Go out to the balcony, where you will jump across to the other balcony.  Inside,
a wounded soldier asks you to get the bell under his bed.
    Go back outside, up the stairway, and through the door.  Go up the stairway
inside and through the archway.  You are now in the area with the locked door.
Ring the bell at the locked door.  Go inside the locked door.  The characters
start automatically walking up a stairway, when they start a conversation.
    When you can move around, go up the stairway and strait into the opening in
the wall.  Inside the room, you see Wei and Kal talking to each other.  Zidane
comes in and saves the day as the structure Kal is sitting under collapses.
    Go up the left stairway and cross over to the left opening in the wall.
You'll come to a room with two doors and a stairway.  In the right door is a
Save Moogle, in the left door Freya will get a Mythril Spear.  Equip it on her.
Now go up the stairway.
    You'll jump up the statue.  Then Freya will have a flashback.  Queen Brahne
and her company will have a conversation.  Then, you go into battle with

          Boss: Beatrix
    Heal frequently.  Use Freya's 'Jump' command as often as possible.  Have
Vivi cast slow, and have Zidane attack.  Stay alive long enough, and you'll exit
out of the battle.

    After the battle, Queen Brahne and her group leaves, and you see one, last
movie.  Then, it's the end of disc one.

Section IV: Disc Two
This section contains instructions on how to get through disc two.

    Segment 1: Cable Car Station

    You start disc two seeing two guards talking to each other in front of South
Gate.  Then you see Steiner and Dagger on the cable car.  As they step out of
the cable car, they realize they are in Alexandria.

      1. Get to the rest area.
      2. Talk to the guard at the counter.
      3. Meet Cinna and Marcus.
      4. Depart in the cable car.
      5. Fight Black Waltz 3.

    You can talk to the guard to see how the cable car works if you want to.
Otherwise, just go up the path to the rest area, where Steiner says that you
should gather information.  Talk to the guard at the counter.  The cable car to
Lindblum will depart, and you'll hear a familiar voice yell that they missed
their ride.
    Go to where you heard the voice from, and you'll see none other than Cinna
and Marcus from Tantalus.  Go back into the rest area, and you'll see Cinna
arguing with Steiner.  Talk to Marcus and Cinna, then talk to Steiner.  Then,
the cable car to Alexandria will arrive.  Before you leave, make sure you
deliver any letters you have to Nanza the Save Moogle in the lower left corner
of the rest area.
    Go out to where Steiner and Marcus are.  Talk to everyone, then go into the
cable car.  In the cable car, Marcus will announce that he's finding a cure for
Blank's petrifaction.  Talk to Marcus.  The cable car comes to stop and the
conductor goes to see what's wrong.  Marcus, Steiner, and Dagger all run outside
to see Black Waltz 3 stumbling around.  He won't stop until he completes his
mission, so he fights you to the death.

          Boss: Black Waltz 3
    Use Dagger to heal the group.  Always wait for Dagger to select an action
until the group needs healing.  Have Steiner and Marcus attack.  Since he's
weak, he will die quickly.

    After Black Waltz 3 dies, the characters talk a little bit.  Then they go
back on the cable car and talk for a while.  The cable car arrives at the
Alexandria station.
    At the fork, take a right.  Try walking ahead, and the guard stops you to
see your Gate Pass.  Walk ahead, and you'll be on the world map.

    Segment 2: Treno

    As you walk to the walled city of Treno (it's by a mountain), it slowly
becomes nighttime.  As Steiner, Dagger, and Marcus enter Treno, they talk about
how they plan to get the Supersoft.

      1. Find Dagger.
      2. Find Marcus.
      3. Find Baku.
      4. Go to Doctor Tot's tower.

    As Dagger and Marcus walk away, you are now controlling Steiner.  A series
of ATEs (Active Time Events) can be seen now.  They show what Dagger and Marcus
are doing.  You can only see an ATE when you go into an area you're supposed to
go into.  If you're bored, you can play a card game tournament in the stadium.
    Eventually, you'll join back up with your group.  You'll find Dagger in the
auction house.  You'll find Marcus in the inn.  Once you get Dagger, go talk to
Marcus.  Then, go out to the docks, where you'll find Baku.
    You view a scene that shows a conversation between the auctioneer and Kuja,
one of the two who were with Brahne in Burmecia.
    Then you see your group on the boat, sailing down a river.  You hear a lot
of what Steiner is thinking.  You also hear Dagger's thoughts.  Then, you arrive
in a house, where you are supposed to find Supersoft.
    A person comes down the stairs, and you hide.  Suddenly, Dagger leaps out,
and starts a friendly conversation with her old tutor, Doctor Tot.  Then, Baku
talks to you as you are about to leave the inn.
    Go to the tower that Doctor Tot told you about.  At the top of the tower,
Marcus takes the Supersoft.  After he takes it and you can move Dagger around,
talk to Doctor Tot.  After you can move around, go up to the hatch that Doctor
Tot opened.

    Segment 3: Gargan Roo

    When you go down the ladder, you find yourself in an underground tunnel
built by ancient people.

      1. Pull the lever to move the spider.
      2. Pull the lever to stop the spider.
      3. Defeat the Ralvurahva.

    The monsters in this tunnel are very hard, so you may want to take some time
to gain levels.  Go to the right path and then walk up.  Doctor Tot will stop
you and tell you to pull a lever.  Pull it, and a spider starts circling the
    Go to the lower left of the area where Doctor Tot is standing now.  Press X
(confirm) in front of the object on the wall.  The spider will stop.  Now you
can get in the trolley.
    After you get in the trolley, you see Doctor Tot go and pull one of the
levers.  Then, you see Dagger and her group on the trolley, when the trolley
comes to a sudden stop.  Dagger leaps out of the trolley and on to the ground to
find a large monster blocking the path of the spider.

          Boss: Ralvurahva
    Hold Dagger's attacks until the party needs healing.  Have Marcus and
Steiner attack.  If you gained levels when you entered the Gargan Roo, the
Ralvurahva will be fairly easy to beat.  Otherwise, phoenix downs and potions
might be very useful in this battle.

    Once you defeat Ralvurahva, you arrive at what the characters think is
Alexandria.  Dagger knows exactly where they are, but Steiner and Marcus insist
they hurry.  Sure enough, it's a trap as two gates go up around them.  Then Zorn
and Thorn come and take you to Queen Brahne.

    Segment 4: Cleyra

    You now see Zidane and his friends in Burmecia.  They say that they should
go to Cleyra.  Wander on the world map until you see a big sandstorm.  Walk up
to the sandstorm and enter.

      1. Open the sealed door.
      2. Fill the room with sand.
      3. Make your way to the Cleyra Settlement.
      4. Defeat the Antlion.
      5. Help the townspeople.

    You enter into the sandstorm as the characters have a short conversation.
Then, you now can move Zidane around.  Move forward to the next area.  Go to the
top of all the stairs and pull the lever.  The door below will open.  Go through
the opened door.
    In the 4th area from the room with the door, you'll find a hole in the wall.
Put your hand in the hole.  In the area before the area with the hole, the
entrance you came from before is gone.  Climb the chains up to the opening in
the big stone.  Now go to the left and through the log in the area you just came
    Go up the log into the next area.  In this area, there's a fork.  Go left
for a Flame Staff.  Going right brings you to another area.  This area contains
a bridge.  Just go across it to get to the next area.  In the next area, there's
a fork.  Take the right or center path and you'll come to a lever that you
should pull.  Now go back and take the left path.  Since the sand isn't flowing,
you can go wherever you want.  You should wind up in a room with quicksand.
Avoid the quicksand, pressing X rapidly if you fall in.  Once you get across,
you'll go to the next area.  At the end of the third area, you'll go into the
Cleyra Settlement.
    As you come into the settlement, two people greet Freya.  They will take
Freya to where the king of Burmecia is residing.  One of the people will offer
to show Zidane and Vivi the town.
    Whether you accept the person's offer or not, an ATE (Active Time Event)
will be available soon.  It shows what Vivi is doing.
    Later more ATEs (Active Time Events) may become available to see as you
wander through the village.  They will just show what other people in your group
are doing.
    If you visit the cathedral, you find that Freya has left a message for you
to wait at the inn.  So, go to the inn.  As you're about to enter the inn, you
find out that an antlion is hurting a child from a panicked Burmecian soldier.
Follow the soldier to the antlion, where your other party members will join you
in fighting the antlion.

          Boss: Antlion
    This boss is very cruel.  Always have at least one person stay ready to heal
with whatever potions you have. Use Freya's 'Jump' command and Vivi's spells.
Use Zidane to heal.  If Freya has the Mythril Staff equipped, have her cast
'Reis's Wind' to make all characters be regenerating HP.  It Vivi has the Fire
Staff equipped, his 'Fira' spell will be your best bet since it does massive
damage to the Antlion.  The 'Sandstorm' attack that the Antlion uses will
devastate your party, since it puts everyone down to less than 10 HP.  But, if
Freya is in the middle of her 'Jump' when 'Sandstorm' is used, she won't be
affected by it since she will be in the air.  When you do beat this monster,
you'll probably be near dead.

    After the battle, Freya talks with Prince Puck, the person who helped Vivi
get into 'I Want To Be Your Canary' at the beginning of the game.  Freya returns
to the cathedral to talk to the king.  After the conversation, a ceremony is
performed to strengthen the sandstorm.  Instead, the sandstorm dissolves and
    After the sandstorm, people are afraid that someone is invading.

    As the screen fades, leaving Cleyra with fear of being invaded, you now see
how Dagger and friends are doing.  Steiner and Marcus are in a cage hovering
over two guards.
    You see Dagger in her bedroom, thinking about her mother.  Then, Zorn and
Thorn come in and take Dagger to see Queen Brahne.  Whether you believe Queen
Brahne or not, Kuja comes in and puts Dagger under a spell.
    Next you see Zorn and Thorn performing a ceremony.  Then, you see Zidane and
Freya again.

    After some dialogue, you control Freya.  Just go to the entrance of the
town.  Now, make your way down the tree.
    You'll meet Alexandrian soldiers as you make your way down.  As you cross
the bridge, Freya stops you and Puck comes to warn you that the village is under
attack.  As usual, there are those little golems there.
    First, you battle an upgraded golem: Type B.  Then you fight three
Alexandrian soldiers.  Then, two more Type B's come.  Then you go throughout the
town, hoping to save it from invasion, more importantly, the king and high
priest from death.
    Eventually, you run to the cathedral, hoping to be safe inside.  But, Type
B's surround you.  Suddenly, you hear a voice.  A figure leaps down from the
cathedral, and wipes out the Type B's, giving you time to hide inside the
    Inside the cathedral, Freya is talking to her old friend, Sir Fratley.  But,
Fratley does not remember who Freya is.  Fratley does not even remember the king
of Burmecia.  Puck comes into the cathedral, telling everyone that he found
Fratley and brought in to Cleyra.
    After some dialogue, the game remembers that there's an invasion going on.
You find Beatrix, sitting by the harp, and the high priest on the ground.  She
takes the magic stone, then runs away.
    Chase after Beatrix.  Outside the cathedral, she will stop.  Again, you'll
fight a battle at a severe disadvantage.

          Boss: Beatrix
    Fight Beatrix similar to how you did the first time, except this time,
expect much more of a challenge.  Immediately use Vivi's 'Slow' spell and you
should be fine.

    After the battle, the characters teleport with the black mages to see who,
or what, is behind all of this...

    Segment 5: On the Airship

    You'll see a scene with Queen Brahne in it.  You'll also see a movie.  After
the movie, your characters arrive on Queen Brahne's airship.  When you hear
someone coming, you hide behind the stairs.  An Alexandrian Soldier and Beatrix
have a quick talk, then you are able to control your character.

      1. Try looking through the door on the deck.
      2. Use the pods to get to Alexandria.

    Walk up the stairs to the door on the deck.  Zidane will try to look through
it, but will have no luck.  You then see Brahne talking to Beatrix.  Brahne
announces that she needs one more jewel.  She also says that she will execute
Dagger when she returns to Alexandria.
    After a bit of discussion, Vivi tells everyone to follow him.  Follow Vivi
to where the large pots are.  Try using the pods, and you're on your way to
    After the characters teleport away, you see how Marcus and Steiner are doing
in their cage.  They have finally come up with a plan to get them out of the
cage.  Just do as Marcus tells you to do and you'll bust out of the cage.

    Segment 6: Rescue at Alexandria Castle/Gargan Roo (Visit 2)

    After you break out of the cage, you now must find Dagger.

      1. Get Zidane and his group to help you.
      2. Defeat Zorn and Thorn.
      3. Get Dagger.
      4. Defeat Beatrix.
      5. Have Beatrix and Freya distract Zorn and Thorn.
      6. Fall for Zorn and Thorn's trap.
      7. Defeat the Ralvuimago.

    An Alexandrian guard comes storming at you.  Expect more to be chasing after
you.  It's pretty easy to know where to go: The path has no forks that you can
go to.  Once you get on the stairway, Marcus decides that he's waited long
enough.  He goes away to save Blank.  Right after he leaves, Vivi, Zidane, and
Freya arrive to help Steiner.  Then, a 30 minute timer pops up.  You have to act
fast, because what you can do is limited by time.
    Move forward to go on to the next area once Marcus closes the gate on the
Alexandrian guards.  Follow the path in the ground to the next area after that.
Then, follow the path to the top of the screen to get to the next area.  Go in
the castle and leave the guards in the next area confused.
    Once in the castle, go up the main stairway and take a left.  Go through the
opening in the wall that's right above where you entered from.  Go up the
stairway to the left and through the door that Dagger came out of at the
beginning of the game.  Go up the stairway in the center and open the door at
the top of it.  Try moving the candle emitting purple light in the upper left
corner of the room you just came into.
    Go down the stairs in the room you arrive in, remembering that it mike take
some time.  Ignore all the doors in the next area.  Go down to the next area,
where you'll see a door.  Go through this door.  You'll see Zorn and Thorn with
Dagger lying in between them.  You'll finally get a chance to beat up on those

          Boss: Zorn and Thorn
    Focus your attacks on one of the two.  I focused my attacks on Thorn.
Having Freya cast 'Reis's Wind' is vital to your survival.  Although Zorn and
Thorn may not seem that tough, their 'Meteorite' spell hurts!  Use items
frequently, as usual.  Have Steiner and Zidane beat up on whoever you are
focusing your attacks on.  Vivi's 'Slow' on either enemy will be useful.  Use
Freya's 'Jump' command right before you think they might cast 'Meteorite.'  Once
you hurt them enough, they'll give up and leave.

    Run up to Dagger.  As soon as you reach her, your time limit ends.
Finishing in time shouldn't be a problem.  (I ended my first try with 22 minutes
left on the clock!)
    After the characters discus Dagger's condition, you'll automatically see an
ATE (Active Time Event).  The ATE just shows how Marcus is doing on his dash to
    You're Zidane again, and you have to carry Dagger out of there!  There's no
time limit though, so it shouldn't be much of a problem.  Be sure to stop by the
Save Moogle that just moved into the room you're in!
    Go back the same way you came in.  Once you get to the room where the secret
passage was, the characters pause and close the secret passage.  Then, Zidane
insists on staying there to let Dagger rest.  After a while, Zorn and Thorn walk
in, followed by Beatrix.  Then, you have another fight with Beatrix.

          Boss: Beatrix
    Have Vivi start the battle by casting 'Slow' on Beatrix.  Also, have Freya
cast Reis's Wind.  Heal frequently with what items you have left from the recent
boss battles.  Don't bother stealing from Beatrix since she only gives you a
Phoenix Down.  At the end of the battle, Beatrix decides that she is just
wasting her time on you.

    After Beatrix stops fighting, she assists in reviving Dagger.  After Dagger
is revived, Queen Brahne comes into the room.  Freya and Beatrix offer to stay
and distract Brahne while you escape.  Zorn and Thorn send a monster to do the
job instead.  Just use a few of Beatrix's attacks and the monster will be dead.
    You now are controlling Zidane.  Get down the stairs as fast as you can,
there's a monster chasing after you.  Once you get to the second area of the
stairs, those annoying black mages will be after you again.  This time, there
Type C's.
    Hurry down the stairs, but the Bandersnatch will leap down and fight you
eventually.  You go into combat with two of them.  They're pretty easy.
Continue down to the next area, where the characters will automatically run.
Then, Steiner decides to leave.  After that, you go into combat with another
Bandersnatch.  Zidane, Dagger, and Vivi start running away as the screen fades.
    Then, you see how Beatrix and Freya are doing.  They're hopping down the
stairs, trying to avoid Bandersnatches of their own.  Then, they go into a
battle with two Bandersnatches.  Then, Steiner comes to help as two more
Bandersnatches attack.
    After that, you're Zidane again.  Go down the stairway, past the room where
you found Dagger.  Then, you'll fall for the same cage trap you did before.
But, Marcus will save the day.  Blank will be there too.
    Marcus and Blank say that they'll take care of covering you escape, while
you get out from the Gargan Roo.  Everyone will hop on the trolley.  Then,
you'll run into a boss similar to the one you ran into before in the Gargan Roo.

          Boss: Ralvuimago
    Whenever you use a physical attack, Ralvuimago will become compact.  His
defense will skyrocket, but he won't attack.  Use the time when he's compact to
heal the party.  Using this strategy, the boss shouldn't be very hard.

    After you defeat the Ralvuimago, you get back on the trolley.  And, the
Ralvuimago gets up and starts chasing the trolley.  You fly past Treno, and
crash a while down the tunnel.
    You see what Queen Brahne is doing for a while.  You also hear more about

    Segment 7: Pinnacle Rocks

    You see Dagger lying down, thinking about her mother.  She wakes up, seeing
Vivi.  After some discussion, they decide to go to Lindblum Castle to borrow an
airship.  Then, a person named Ramuh appears, floating in midair.  After the
characters talk with Ramuh, you must travel around the forest to find five items
he will hide.

      1. Collect five pieces to the story. (Optional)
      2. Watch the destruction of Lindblum.

    There's a Save Moogle not to far from where you start controlling the
characters.  You probably want to go save.  Search throughout the entire area to
find the pieces to the story.  Put them in the following order: Beginning,
Cooperation, Silence, Hero.  If you don't feel like finding all the pieces to
the story, you can just proceed without being able to summon Ramuh.
    You go to the cliff overlooking Lindblum.  If you're done with business on
the Pinnacle Rocks, jump off.  After you jump off, you see Lindblum being
destroyed by airships.  It's also being invaded by those pesky black mages.

    Segment 8: Lindblum (Visit 2)

    You arrive in Lindblum, or at least, what's left of it.  Zidane and his
friends have a conversation.  You tell Vivi to hide, and you are free to explore
what remains of Lindblum.

      1. Find Minister Artania.
      2. Talk to Regent Cid.
      3. Leave Lindblum.

    Go up the road in town, then take a left in the next area.  You'll find
Minister Artania.  He offers to take you to see Regent Cid.  You talk to Regent
Cid for a while, then two guards come in with Vivi.  They hand him over to you.
Regent Cid has more to tell you about Brahne's plans.  You also have plans of
your own now.
    Prepare for your departure.  Stock up on items before you leave.  Then, talk
to the man by the fountain to get out of the town.  After you tell him that
you're ready to leave, you see an ATE (Active Time Event).  After the ATE ends,
you'll see a scene with Zidane and Dagger.  Then, you'll get to the Base Level.
    After you depart, you'll see another ATE (Active Time Event).  This ATE
shows the soldiers waiting for the trolley that Cid stopped.  Before you leave
through Dragon's Gate, buy some weapons from the merchant.  Now, you can leave

    Segment 9: Qu's Marsh

    On the world map, go to the marsh you looked at through the telescope in
disc one.  This marsh is called Qu's Marsh.

      1. Meet Quina.
      2. Talk to the Qu chief.
      3. Find the entrance to the tunnel.

    Explore the marsh until you find a place with a fat creature in an apron
walking around.  This is Quina.  If you haven't met him before, catch a frog for
him.  Otherwise, just talk to him.  Quina will join your group.
    Go up from where you found Quina.  You'll see a hut.  Go in it, and you'll
meet the Qu tribe's chief.  He will give you a hint on how to get to the
excavation site.  When you leave the hut, go to the right.
    You will be automatically moving now, following Quina.  Quina will run right
into the tunnel you're supposed to go into.  After you can control Zidane again,
go where Quina went, down into the Fossil Roo.

    Segment 10: Fossil Roo

    You are now in the underground tunnel: Fossil Roo.

      1) Escape Armodullahan.
      2) Defeat Lani.
      3) Ride the garnet.
      4) Flip switch #1.
      5) Flip switch #2.
      6) Flip switch #1 again.
      7) Flip switch #3.
      8) Leave Fossil Roo.

    Walk forward in the tunnel.  As you step pass the sun symbol on the wall,
the ground shakes.  One gate closes and another opens.  A giant object comes
rolling out.  Zidane tries running away from it.  Keep running away when you
control Zidane.  He will probably eventually catch up to you.

          Boss: Armodullahan
    Armodullahan usually starts the battle with 'Level 5 Death.'  This move will
instantly kill anyone who's level is a multiple of five.  Don't worry about
whoever fell, this boss falls after small amounts of damage.

    The Armodullahan will get up shortly.  You must continue to outrun it.  In
the third area of the bridge, the Armodullahan will fall into a pit.
    After you're done with Armodullahan, the bounty hunter Lani approaches and
prepares to attack you.  You also find out that Lani set Armodullahan loose.
Lani gets frustrated, and attacks.

          Boss: Lani
    Have Quina heal, Zidane attack, Dagger use Ramuh, and Vivi cast spells, make
sure he casts 'Slow.'  Lani will focus his attacks on Dagger, so make Dagger the
primary target of healing.  When Lani asks why you aren't giving up, that means
she's getting weak.  She will start using more devastating attacks, which means
you may want to devote Dagger to healing now.

    Once Lani is defeated, she makes a quick escape.  Now you can proceed into
Fossil Roo.  In the next area, you'll see a gargant walking around the ceiling.
Walk over to the left and pick up a plant.  Hold it in front of the tunnel,
and the gargant will come to you.  You'll hop on the gargant.
    The gargant will take you across the river, where you can go on to the next
area.  You can get back across the river by grabbing a plant and giving it to
the gargant.  In the next area, talk to the treasure hunter.  He will tell you
how to get to the Outer Continent.
    Take the upper path.  Take a plant and give it to the gargant to hitch a
ride.  In the area beyond where the gargant takes you, you'll find switch #1.
Choose to flip the switch.
    Go back and hitch another ride on the gargant.  Since switch #1 is flipped,
you'll go to a different place this time.  In the second area after the area the
gargant takes you to, you'll find switch #2.  Flip switch #2.
    Take the gargant back to switch #1.  Flip switch #1, then ride gargant back
to the area where the treasure hunter was.  Take the lower path this time and
ride the gargant there.
    The gargant will take you to an area with another treasure hunter.  Go up
the staircase.  Go on to the next area.  Don't flip the switch in this room.  Go
on to the next area and hitch a ride on the gargant.
    The gargant takes you to a small area.  Go on to the next area, that has
plants on the wall.  You'll have to climb the wall carefully.  Rest above the
platforms to avoid the sudden spurts of water that will force you down from the
wall.  At the top is switch #3.  Flip this switch if you're ready to go outside
of Fossil Roo.
    Go to the right of the room (not the far right) and on to the next area,
where you'll hitch a ride on a gargant that will take you out of Fossil Roo.
    You arrive in an area that leads out of the tunnel.  Go out to find yourself
on the Outer Continent.

    Segment 11: Conde Petie

    Travel along the continent until you come a place called Conde Petie.

      1. View all of the ATEs (Active Time Events).
      2. Find and chase the black mage in the store.

    As you walk in, some creatures are yelling their sacred greeting.  After you
say their sacred greeting, you can pass.  And, there are two ATEs (Active Time
Events) available.  One shows what Vivi is doing, the other shows what Quina is
    As you walk into the shop, another ATE (Active Time Event) becomes available
for you to see.  This one shows what Dagger is doing.
    After you talk to Vivi on the bridge above the shop, another ATE (Active
Time Event) becomes available.  This ATE shows a hungry resident of Conde Petie.
    After seeing all of the ATEs (Active Time Events), go back into the shop.
You'll see a black mage there.  Vivi comes in, and he and Zidane chase after
him.  Then, you meet up with Dagger.  She also helps chase the black mage.
After a conversation with the person at the front gate, you decide to go to the
Southeast Forest to find the tribe of black mages.
    Now you can leave, and go find the Southeast Forest.

    Segment 12: Southeast Forest/Black Mage Village

    Now you're back on the world map, and need to find the Southeast Forest.
Follow the directions that the person in Conde Petie gave you to get to the
Southeast Forest.

      1. Enter Black Mage Village.
      2. Meet Vivi in the inn.

    Once you enter, take the right fork, then the left fork, then right, then
left, etc.  Eventually, you'll see a black mage run out of one of the forks.
Follow the mage.  In the area the mage goes to, you'll see him open a portal,
them close it.  You'll follow him into it.
    You are now in Black Mage Village.  The black mages are panicked when they
see humans.  After Dagger, Vivi, and Quina run off, you can see some ATEs
(Active Time Events).  They all cover what your other characters are doing.
    Wander around the village, meeting other characters and seeing more ATEs
(Active Time Events).  After seeing all the ATEs and meeting all of the
characters, go meet Vivi in the inn.  Choose to rest.
    Dagger wakes up, telling Zidane that Vivi left.  Dagger talks with Zidane
for a while.  Then, they go back to sleep.
    In the morning, a black mage tells Dagger that he saw a silver dragon.
There's also a bit more information about Kuja.  They say to go to the Sanctuary
beyond Conde Petie.

    Segment 13: Conde Petie (Visit 2)/Mountain Path

    Go back to the Conde Petie.  As you enter, the characters have a short

      1. Talk to the dwarf by the exit.
      2. Talk to Father David.
      3. Talk to the twins.
      4. Join Eiko.
      5. Defeat Hilgigars.

    Talk to the dwarf by the exit in the area that has the Kirkboat in it.  He
will tell you what you need to do to pass.  Go down the staircase in the upper
left of this area.  The person walking around here is who you need to talk to.
     When you talk to him, he says that he is Father David.  The ceremony is
similar to a marriage.  Surprisingly, Dagger volunteers to perform the ceremony
with Zidane.
    Go talk to the dwarfs at the other gate.  They will let you through.  Vivi
and Quina will follow.  Go out of Conde Petie now.
    You will now be on the Mountain Path, where you'll save Eiko from falling.
Eiko joins when Quina runs after the moogle.
    Go forward through the mountain pass.  When you come to the two moogles,
turn left.  When you enter the next area, you'll see a giant tree.  Go on to the
next area, where you will be attacked by Hilgigars.

          Boss: Hilgigars
    Have Eiko and Dagger heal and use summons.  Have Vivi use spells like 'Fira'
and 'Thundara.'  Also, have Vivi cast 'Slow' at the beginning of the battle.
Have Zidane attack.  You don't have to worry that much about phoenix downs
because Eiko has a 'Life' spell.

    After Hilgigars is defeated, Eiko suggests you go to the Iifa Tree, also
known as the Sanctuary.  Move forward to the Iifa Tree.  In the next  area, take
the left branch.

    Segment 14: Madain Sari

    You wind up on the world map.  Move forward, toward the coast, where you
will find Madain Sari, Eiko's village.

      1. Find Quina.
      2. Talk to Morrison.
      3. Show Dagger the Eidolon Wall.
      4. Eat at Eiko's home.

    Mog flies in after a short conversation.  Eiko tells you to follow her.  She
talks a while with Zidane, then Dagger gets involved in their conversation.
After Eiko runs to cook a meal, an ATE (Active Time Event) is available.  It
shows what Vivi is doing.
    When you walk out of the area, another ATE (Active Time Event) can be seen
about how Dagger feels.  If you go up the staircase in the first area and talk
to the moogle, you'll meet Quina.  S/he will jump into the river, trying to find
food.  Walk back to where Dagger was, and you'll automatically see an ATE of how
Eiko is feeling.  In the ATE, who you choose to do each job probably affects
something, but I don't have any information on that yet.
    Go to the lower left exit in the main area to meet Vivi.  Try walking in the
house to the left, and Morrison will offer to take you to the Eidolon Wall.
When you go back to the main area, another ATE (Active Time Event) will be
available.  This shows how Eiko is doing in her kitchen.  I'm guessing that how
accurate you are on how many people you need to get water for (the correct
number is 10) affects how good the meal is.  Also, I'm guessing that whether you
put the oglop in or not changes the outcome of the meal.  All the options you
see in ATEs involving Eiko probably change how good the meal is.  I'll make a
chart later.
    Go to the lower right from the main area now.  Go talk to Dagger.  Zidane
offers to take her to Eidolon Wall.  Now that Dagger's with you, take her to
where you found Quina.  The moogle will let you in to see Eidolon Wall.
    When you walk away from Eidolon Wall, another ATE (Active Time Event) of
Eiko will be available.  In this event, Eiko mistakes Quina for Kuja, but causes
no harm.
    Now, go into Eiko's house to eat.  After the meal, pick up the pot and take
it to Eiko.  While there, Zidane asks about the Iifa Tree.  Talk to the moogle
that is fishing, Dagger, and Eiko.  Then, try to go outside.  Momatose the
moogle will stop you and ask you if you want to sleep before you leave.  Choose
to sleep.  You'll walk out in the middle of the night and talk to Vivi.
    The next day, Zidane leaves the village with Eiko, Dagger, and Vivi.

    Segment 15: Iifa Tree

    Go through the Conde Petie Mountain Pass.  You'll be on the world map.  Walk
forward, to the Iifa Tree.

      1. Get to the bottom of the tree.
      2. Defeat Soulcage.

    As you walk in, the characters have a short conversation.  Ask Eiko about
the barrier you're running into.  Eiko will take the seal down.  Then, you can
go over to the Iifa Tree.
    Go down the paths to the Iifa Tree.  Eventually, you'll come to a circular
platform, where the characters will stop to have a short conversation.  When
Zidane stands on it, he finds out that it's an elevator.  Once you get down,
move forward to the Iifa Tree.
    Eventually, you'll come to another area where the characters stop and have a
conversation.  Eiko finds a platform while the characters are talking.  When all
of the characters get on the platform, it moves.  The characters talk as they
ride the platform down.  Some enemies fight them on their way down.
    When you can move around, talk to Vivi.  After a little bit of discussion,
you go into another battle.  Then, you arrive at the bottom.  Talk to everyone
when you are able to control Zidane.  Check the edge of the root that Vivi and
Eiko are standing on, too.  Once you check the edge of the root, something
attacks from above.  Run up to where Dagger is.  You go down with Dagger to
where Vivi and Eiko are.  The monster that comes tells you a bit about Mist.

          Boss: Soulcage
    Use your normal boss strategy with this boss.  Make use of summons and
spells.  Do not have Vivi cast the normal 'Slow,' Soulcage will not be affected
by it.  If you're stocked up on potions, equip everyone with the 'Auto-Potion'
ability (Mythril Vest has this ability).  Every time a character is hurt, they
will automatically drink a potion!  Do not cast fire spells on Soulcage because
he as a nasty counterattack.  (You may have to cast a fire spell on Soulcage for
him to die, but I'm not sure.)

    After Soulcage is defeated, your characters run to escape the Iifa Tree.
Then, you watch a movie that shows all of the Mist disappearing.  Then, Eiko has
to return back to her village.  Your characters offer to go with her.

    Segment 15: Madain Sari (Visit 2)

    Make your way through the Conde Petie Mountain Pass to Madain Sari.

      1. Follow Eiko to the cave under her house.
      2. Go to Eidolon Wall.
      3. Defeat the red-headed man.
      4. Find Dagger.
      5. Get Amarant to join.

    When you arrive at Conde Petie, Eiko's moogles come running to her.  The
moogles run off with her.  Follow her when you can control Zidane.  Go to Eiko's
house.  Go into the cave on the dock.  A precious stone has been stolen.
    Eiko leaves to pray, then Zidane and Dagger talk for a while.  Vivi comes
down, telling you what happened.  Now, go to Eidolon Wall, where Vivi says Eiko
was taken to.  Talk to the moogle in front of Eidolon Wall for healing, then
peek inside.  Lani will be holding Eiko.  Then, the moogles will give you a
sword called 'Exploda.'  They will also give you an elixir.  Equip Exploda.  Ask
the moogle in front of the wall where Mog is.  After you have a choice again,
choose to save Eiko.  As Vivi is about to hand over the pendant to Lani, a
figure comes jumping in, saving the day.  Zidane offers to duel the person.

          Boss: Scarlet Hair
    If you have the 'Auto-Potion' ability, it will help in this battle.  Just
use regular attacks.  But, only attack him when he's in the middle of the screen
(after he says 'Here I go!').

    After you win the battle, the red-headed man insists that you kill him, but
Zidane won't hurt him any more.  After a while, the man leaves.  Follow Eiko and
Vivi back to the cave under Eiko's house.  After some dialogue, Eiko has not
made up her mind on whether she will go with you or not.
    Dagger ran off now.  Outside of Eiko's house, press X (confirm) when you see
the exclamation point above Zidane.  Zidane goes looking for her, and finds her
in a small boat.  In the middle of Zidane and Dagger's talk, Zidane tells a
story about a person named Ipsen.  After the story, the boat starts drifting
off.  After a while, you see a movie.  There's a scene in it that you saw at the
beginning of the game, and probably didn't understand.
    You're back in Eiko's house, talking with everyone.  Dagger finds out that
Brahne adopted her, and that she was born in Madain Sari.  There's a bit more
dialogue, then  Eiko decides that she will go with you.  There's even more
dialogue, then the red-headed man comes back.  He joins, under the name Amarant.
You decide what people to take with you now.

    Segment 16: Iifa Tree (Visit 2)

    You're back on the world map now.  Make your way back to the Iifa Tree.

      1. Get to Kuja.
      2. Return to Alexandria.

    As you enter the area, the characters walk forward and talk for a while.
Then, Kuja flies in on his silver dragon.  You see Kuja on his dragon, ready to
'cast away his mask and reveal his true self...'  You are given an option to
change characters and go to the menu before you fight Kuja.  Run forward on the
Iifa Tree.
    Eventually, the characters will automatically run, stopping where the trunk
is.  They devise a plan for getting up the trunk.  Then, you see Kuja.
    You are about to attack Kuja.  You can make some last-minute preparations if
you want to.  Your characters talk with Kuja for a while.  Then, Queen Brahne
approaches the Iifa Tree.  She orders an all-out attack on Kuja.  Then, Kuja
sends a monster at you.

          Boss: Mistodon
    There are two Mistodons that attack you.  The team I used was Vivi, Amarant,
Zidane, and Dagger.  Use strategies described in previous boss battles.  The
Mistodons are weak, they should dye quickly.

    After the Mistodons are defeated, Amarant suggests you leave, since two of
your enemies are fighting it out.  You see Kuja flying away, then decide to run
away.  Dagger stops you though.  She doesn't want her mother to die.  You'll
fight another Mistodon while Dagger releases the trapped eidolon.  After the
Mistodon, you go after Dagger.  Run toward Dagger, fighting Mistodons along the
way.  Eventually, you see Dagger receive the eidolon's powers.  But, she can't
use it properly on Kuja.  You then see how the Alexandrians are doing.  Brahne
summons Bahamut to help her.
    After the movie of Bahamut, you see Zidane and everyone with Dagger.  Then,
you see Kuja.  You see another movie.
    Then you read a bit of Vivi's thoughts, then Brahne is able to talk.  She
talks to Dagger for a while, then she dies.  You go back to Alexandria on Queen
Brahne's escape pod.
    You arrive in Alexandria, seeing Tot guide Dagger..  Steiner and Beatrix are
following Dagger.  You see a movie showing Dagger, then disc two ends.

Section V: Disc Three
This section contains instructions on how to get through disc three.

    Segment 1: The Crowning of a Queen

    You start disc three as Dagger, riding on a boat with Steiner, Tot, and
Beatrix.  They are about to prepare for making Dagger a queen.
    You see Ruby, Marcus, Cinna, Blank, and Zidane in the restaurant now.
Zidane seems frustrated.  Ruby, Blank, Cinna, and Marcus leave to watch a play.
They run out of the restaurant, running past Vivi.  Blank greets Vivi and starts
talking with him.  Blank leaves Vivi.  You now control Vivi.

      1. See Ruby's play.  (As Vivi)
      2. Have Baku deliver Eiko's letter to Zidane.  (As Eiko)
      3. Meet with Princess Garnet.  (As Zidane)
      4. Take the trolley in the Gargan Roo to Treno.  (As Zidane)

    Go to the left.  An ATE (Active Time Event) will be available to see.  It
shows three guards talking.  Go forward now.  You can see two ATEs (Active Time
Events).  One shows Blank and Marcus talking.  The other shows three moogles
talking.  Go to the left of the screen.  You should now be in an alley.  Try
walking past Blank, and Blank will stop you.  If you're done in the town, choose
to see Ruby's play.  Otherwise, you can walk around the town some more.
    If you choose to see the play, go down the staircase.  Ruby will greet you,
thinking that you're Blank.  Once you sit down, Marcus and Blank come down.
    Then, you'll see Dagger in her room.  She wants to see Zidane.  Tot gives
you three stones that contain the power of the eidolons that were taken from
    Now, you see Eiko walking down the halls of the castle.  Then, you see Tot
talking to himself.  Eiko seeks Tot's help writing Zidane a love letter.  Tot
thinks about finding Dagger (well, I guess I should call her Garnet now).
    You see Garnet and Beatrix talking in her room now.  Then, the screen shows
Eiko again.  Eiko leaves Doctor Tot wondering about Madain Sari.  You now
control Eiko.  Just go out the upper exit in the room you are in.  Eiko will
run, looking for Zidane, and trip over Baku.  Baku volunteers to take the letter
to Zidane.
    After Baku leaves Eiko, he runs into Steiner.  Baku talks to Steiner for a
while, then takes the boat to town.  Then, Beatrix walks in.  She finds
something that she thinks Steiner dropped.  Instead, it was Eiko's letter to
    You see Zidane again.  After a while, Marcus, Blank, Cinna, and Ruby walk in
and try to cheer him up.  Zidane gets annoyed, and runs outside, only to meet
Baku right before he leaves the door.  Zidane begs Baku to let him join Tantalus
again, then Vivi comes in.  He goes to see Dagger with Vivi (they still call her
    Now you control Zidane.  As you walk out of the restaurant, you can see an
ATE (Active Time Event) that shows Baku realizing he lost the love letter.  Once
the ATE ends, go to the left into the next area.  In that area, go forward.  In
the next area, go through the open gate at the top of the screen.
    Here's where you'll take the boat across the river.  Freya is there.
Amarant comes and winds up about to fight with Freya.  Zidane and Vivi come in
to stop their conflict.  Freya, Vivi, and Amarant offer to come with you to see
    Cross the river to the other side.  Go into the castle, and you'll see
Steiner carrying Eiko.  After some discussion,  Steiner offers to arrange a
meeting between you and Dagger.  Dagger and Beatrix come out of Dagger's room to
meet with Zidane and his friends.  She does it very quickly, then Steiner
insists that she hurry.  Eiko runs up the stairs to talk to Garnet.  They trade
their jewels with their Eidolons on them as a gift.
    Then you see Eiko at the spot where she was meeting Zidane, depressed.  Eiko
tries leaving, but then realizes someone's coming.  She hides, as Marcus and
Blank come.  It appears that Eiko's letter got misplaced again.  As someone else
is coming, Marcus and Blank run and hide.  Steiner comes to patrol, and finds
the love letter.  Then Beatrix, who found the letter earlier, comes.  There's a
bit of dialogue, then Baku comes in, for no apparent reason.
    Now you see Amarant, Freya, and Vivi in the inn.  Vivi goes to look for
Zidane, and runs into Eiko on his way out.  Tot comes in now.  He's looking for
Eiko.  He asks her the name of her village.  He wants to ask her more questions
about her village, but Eiko insists that they go to his house, in Treno.  Zidane
comes in and explains why he also wants to go there.  You go down to the Gargan
    Once in the Gargan Roo, there's a bit of discussion about Mist, then you get
on the trolley.  Once on the trolley, you see an ATE (Active Time Event).  This
ATE shows what Zorn and Thorn are doing.  It also shows what Blank and Marcus
are doing.

    Segment 2: Treno/Alexandria Invaded

    Adamant, Zidane, Vivi, Freya, Tot, and Eiko arrive in Tot's home in Treno.
Eiko, Vivi, Amarant, and Freya go to look around the town.  Tot tells you that
it's the last day to register for the card game tournament.

      1. Challenge people around town to Tetra Master for practice.
      2. Register for and play in the card game tournament.
      3. Kill monsters in Alexandria.  (As Steiner and Beatrix)
      4. Climb to the top of the castle. (As Garnet/Dagger)

    As soon as you can control Zidane, you can see an ATE (Active Time Event) of
Eiko and Vivi's conversation.  Tot suggests that before you enter the card game
tournament, you play some people in Tetra Master.  If you've forgotten how to
challenge people, you use square (save/moogle button).  As soon as you start
going down the tower, another ATE (Active Time Event) shows Vivi meeting up with
the friend that brought him to Alexandria before the start of disc one.  In the
ATE, you can decide if Vivi goes to his home near Treno or stays in Treno.
Based on which option you choose, you'll see different ATEs (Active Time
Events).  Since the ATEs vary, I will no longer tell about them in this section.
    When you feel like your ready, go register for the card game tournament in
the booth by the stadium.  After you register, you can walk into the stadium to
start the tournament.
    You have to at least challenge the champion.  Afterwards, Regent Cid and the
champion, a female pilot from Lindblum, tell you that they came to Treno on the
airship that runs without Mist.  Then, Eiko runs in and tells you that something
horrible has happened.
    You see Kuja in Alexandria, talking to himself.  You see a movie of what
Kuja does to Alexandria, then you see a group of people running away from
Alexandria.  Beatrix comes to help Garnet.  Then, you see Steiner, getting his
troops ready.  You get to choose what orders you give to who.  Based on how well
you order the guards, Beatrix gives you an item.
    The following is the information on ordering the guards (Thanks to
Items you get:
1 right: Ether
2 right: Elixir
All right: Angel Earrings

Commands to Give:
Blutzen & Kohel should gather information.
Weimar & Haagen should protect the citizens.
Breireicht & Lando should send for reinforcements.
Dojebon & Mullenkedheim should ready the cannons.

Then, Garnet asks her mother for help.  Something happens, then you see a
monster terrorizing Alexandria.
    You now control Steiner and Beatrix.  Kill the monster that was terrorizing
Alexandrian citizens.  Move to the bottom of this area to go into the next area.
Run to the bottom of the area you are now in, and you will fight another
    Now move to the next area.  Move forward a little, and two monsters will
attack you.  Move onward to the next area.  You'll fight another monster.  After
that battle ends, another monster will attack you.  After that battle, yet
another monster attacks.  After you win that battle, two monsters attack you.
    After you finish that battle, you see Garnet (Dagger) in the castle.  You
now are moving Garnet/Dagger around.  Have her go into the room through the door
directly above the entrance, up the staircase, and through the door on the upper
wall.  Turn left and go up that stairway and through that door.  Climb up the
stairway.  You'll see a movie now that shows a staircase magically appearing in
front of Dagger/Garnet.  Go up that staircase, and up the ones in the next
areas.  Once you enter an area, Dagger/Garnet will stop and wonder where the
music is still coming from.

    Segment 3: Alexandria Saved/Lindblum

    You find yourself on the airship that doesn't use Mist to fly with your
other party members.  After some discussion, Eiko hears a cry from Dagger.  She
walks to the edge of the ship, and flies off.  You see a movie showing Eiko and

      1. Find Dagger.
      2. Find Dagger.
      3. Meet with Regent Cid.
      4. Find Dagger in the guest room.
      5. Find the three potions.
      6. Board the boat.

    Dagger talks with Eiko for a while, then they summon a great holy eidolon to
help them.  You see a movie of the eidolon being summoned and stopping Bahamut
from invading the town any more.  Then, you see Kuja, using magic to trap
Alexander, the holy element.
    You see a man in a strange place saying that Kuja has gone too far.  He
talks a while longer, then Kuja realizes he has lost his power to enslave
    Then, you see Zidane and the others coming into the castle.  You have to
find Dagger.  Run the course you took as Dagger.  When Zidane gets to the hidden
area of the castle, he tells the others to escape the castle in case something
happens.  Once your only Zidane, climb the secret stairway.  About halfway up,
the ground trembles and you see a movie.  After the movie, Zidane, Dagger, and
Eiko go out of the castle.  Whoever was the mysterious figure you saw earlier
appears again in the strange area.  He talks to himself, then the screen goes
back to showing Lindblum being reconstructed.
    Blank and Baku go to check to see if Zidane's awake.  Now you see Zidane.
He wakes up in the Lindblum guest room.  Try going out of the guest room, and
Blank comes in.  After asking him a question, you're outside the guest room.
    You can now see an ATE (Active Time Event) of Quina.  Go up to the telescope
to find Dagger.  After Zidane talks to her, Zidane leaves and can see another
ATE (Active Time Event) of Blank.  Walk down to where Blank is.  He tells you to
see Cid.  Go to the royal chamber where you usually meet Cid.  Talk to the
guards, then go into the royal chamber.  Minister Artania will take you to the
conference room where your other party members are waiting.
    Eiko goes to get Dagger, and then you see an ATE (Active Time Event) of
Dagger.  After the ATE, Regent Cid and your party members talk for a while.
Then, you see another ATE (Active Time Event) of Kuja.  After the ATE, the
characters talk some more with Regent Cid.  Doctor Tot comes in to join the
conversation.  Then, Eiko runs in, saying that Dagger might have lost her voice.
Go to the guest room to check on Dagger.
    Dagger has indeed lost her voice.  You go to see Regent Cid about how to
turn him back to a human.  Doctor Tot says that you can turn Cid back into a
human by mixing an Unusual Potion, Beautiful Potion, and Strange Potion at a
5:2:3 ratio.  Zidane offers to go to look for the ingredients.
    As you walk out of Cid's room, you can see an ATE (Active Time Event) of
Marcus and Cinna.  Go to the air cab station.  Go to the theatre district.  When
you walk outside of the theatre district, if you helped Kal and Wei in Burmecia,
they'll be outside.  They will talk to you, then you'll see an ATE (Active Time
Event) of Freya.
    Go down the stairs and you'll find Cinna and Marcus.  Zidane will talk to
them for a while, them as for Cinna's Unusual Potion.  Go up the stairs again.
Across from the stairs, you'll see a building.  Ask the artist inside about the
potions.  Go check out the corner of the room where you see all of the bottles,
and you'll find the Strange Potion.  Now, take the air cab to the business
district.  Walk up the road.  At the fork in the next area, go right.  Ask
Alice, a woman dressed in white, about the potions.  She will give you the
Beautiful Potion.
    Now you have all the potions.  Take the air cab to Lindblum Castle and go to
Regent Cid in the royal chamber.  The potion turns Regent Cid into a frog.
Regent Cid orders a meeting in the conference room with your party members.
Vivi suggests that you take a ship to Black Mage Village.  As you walk out of
the conference room, you can see an ATE (Active Time Event) of what Quina is
    Take the elevator to the base level of the castle.  Ride the trolley on the
right to Serpent's Gate.  Get on the boat.  You'll find Quina as well as your
other party members on the boat.  Blank is also there. You get to choose your
party members, then control your boat on the way to the Outer Continent.

    Segment 4: Black Mage Village

    Land on the beach south of Black Mage Village and start making your way
towards Black Mage Village.

      1. Go to the cemetery.
      2. Go to the chocobo shack.

    You'll arrive in Black Mage Village.  Vivi doesn't think anyone's in the
village.  Vivi goes to look around.  You can look around for a while too.  You
won't find anybody.
    Go to the cemetery, where Vivi is with one black mage.  Vivi talks with the
black mage for a while, then Vivi runs to the chocobo shack.  Follow Vivi to the
chocobo shack.  Go into the shack with Vivi.  A new chocobo will be born.  When
you go outside the shack, you talk to the black mage.  He tells you that Kuja's
secret palace is buried under quicksand on the eastern side of the continent.

    Segment 5: Kuja's Palace

    Sail your boat to the eastern side of the continent.  Land on the beach you
sea.  The quicksand is just north of that area.  Try different quicksand pits.
All but one of the pits will start a battle if you press X (confirm) at them.

      1. Stand between the two black mages.
      2. Select who you will take with you to Oeilvert.

    When you find the right quicksand pit, you find yourself in a room with
Regent Cid.  Kuja talks to you.  You must accept his offer.  Go outside of your
room, and go across the bridge.  Stand between the two black mages.  You will be
teleported to Kuja's room.
    Walk up to Kuja.  Kuja is going to send you to Oeilvert, south of the
Seaways Canyon on the Forgotten Continent.   He wants you to get the Gulug Stone
for him.  You can choose what party members you want to bring with you.  You
probably want to take Freya, Amarant, and Steiner with you.  There's an
anti-magic barrier around Oeilvert, which means you won't be able to use and
magic there.
    Once you select your team, Kuja brings the party members you chose to
Zidane.  Move forward on the path that Kuja teleports you to.  You'll see the
Hilda Garde 1.  Get on the Hilda Garde 1.  You will fly for a while, then you'll
see Zidane talking to black mages on the Hilda Garde 1.  Zorn and Thorn will
walk up to you and talk to you for a while.  You'll see the Hilda Garde 1 flying
again.  It flies to the Forgotten Continent.

    Segment 6: Oeilvert/Escape the Palace

    Go south, to Oeilvert.

      1. Touch the orb and view the writing on the globe.
      2. Activate the projectors.
      3. View the slideshow.
      4. Talk to the faces on the wall.
      5. Find the Gulug Stone and fight Ark.
     Kuja's Palace:
      1. Get the key.
      2. Turn over the hourglass.
      3. Collect bloodstones and light lamps.
      4. Defeat Valia Pira.
      5. Follow Kuja to the Lost Continent.

    At the entrance of Oeilvert, there's a Save Moogle.  You probably want to
buy stuff from him as well as save.  Walk up to the building you see.  Walk up
to the big door.  The door will open for you.  Walk inside of the building.  Go
up the stairway in front of you and touch the blue orb.  It should become red
    Go back down the staircase and go to the left.  As you walk past the globe,
writing appears on it, Zidane tries to decode it, then he gives up.  Move down
the staircase in that room.  In the room you come into, go up the staircase.
Inspect the object emitting yellow light that's on the left.  Then check the one
on the right.  Check the right pillar, then the left pillar, on the bottom.  Go
to the staircase on the upper-left of this area.  Move through the area you
arrive in.  Move through the next two areas.  Now you're back in the room with
the globe.
    Exit through the right.  In the room you arrive in, go to the right.  Step
on the symbol in the center of the room and press X (confirm).  Go back to the
room with the globe.  Go through the orange door in the upper-left corner of
this area.  Go right in the area that you arrive in.  On the center of the
platform, press X (confirm).  You will see a slideshow.
    Go to the room with the globe, and go through the blue door in the
upper-left corner.  You stand before a wall of faces.  One face tells you to
step on the platform.  Step on the platform, and it will elevate into the air.
The faces talk to you for a while, then you leave the room.
    Now, go back to the room with the globe.  Go to the right of this room, and
to the right of the next room.  Walk to the symbol, and Zidane will stop along
the way.  A globe will appear above the symbol.  Another globe will appear, then
the two globes will merge into one.
    Go up the staircase in the upper-right corner of the room.  Investigate the
green circle with X (confirm).  The platform will go down.  Walk forward to the
large circular object and press X (confirm).  The Gulug Stone will appear.
Before you take, you have to fight a boss.

          Boss: Ark
    Since you can't use magic, use items to heal.  Have Freya cast 'Reis's Wind'
(which can be used) if she's with you.  If you have Amarant, Steiner, or Zidane,
have them all attack primarily, and use other abilities as well.  Vivi, Eiko,
Dagger, and Quina won't help much in this battle.  You can also steel the Holy
Lance, an excellent weapon for Freya, from Ark.

    After Ark is defeated, you can grab the Gulug Stone.  Then, you see a scene
of your other party members.  Kuja threatens to kill everyone if Zidane isn't
back in ten minutes.  Regent Cid decides that he will save the day.  The black
mages also might help.  You now control Regent Cid.  Have him go across the
bridge and to the right.  Press the circle button when the caged monster has his
back to you.  Once you get the key, Cid gets ready to disable the hourglass.
Put weights B, C, and D on the scale.  (iron, clay, and stone)  Then, climb onto
the scales.
    Everyone will come out of their cells and join together.  Go to the left
from where everyone was standing.  Go left in the next area and up the stairway.
Light the lamp in the area you arrive in, pick up the glowing bloodstone, then
go up the staircase.  Go to the left after examining the three statues and
running to the right.  Before you leave the area, a staircase appears.  Go up
that staircase.  Light the lamp in the next area, then go back to the three
statues.  Now, go to the left.  Light all the lamps except the one in the
lower-right corner of the area you can move around in.  An opening in
the wall appears that will take you to the next area.  Go to the next area from
the area you arrive in.  In the area you are now in, light the lamp on the
lower-left side of the area you can move around in.  Go back through the opening
in the wall to the other opening.
    When you arrive in that area, light the lamp in the lower-left corner of the
area you can move around in.  Now the statues disappear.  Examine the statue in
the center of the room.  Light the two lamps by the staircase in the center of
the area.  The statues to your right disappear.  Now, light the two lamps that
are not lit in this area.  Go down the staircase in the center of the area and
light the lamp there.  Now, go take the bloodstone from the statue in the center
of this area.  Now, go to the right of this area.  The stained glass window will
have disappeared.  Go through it.
    In the room you're in, you see three statues.  Light the candle in front of
the one that doesn't have a lit candle in front of him.  Go take the bloodstone
from the center statue now.  Go on to the next area.
    Light the lamp, and go on to the next area.  Go through the opening in the
wall.  The area that you arrive in is a library.  Light the candle in the
upper-left corner.  A staircase appears.  Light the candle at the top of the
staircase, and one of the bookshelves rises up, revealing a secret passage.
    Beyond the secret passage is a bloodstone.  Take it.  Go back to the
library.  Climb the ladder to the middle bookshelf and light the lamp there.  A
secret passage will be revealed.  Go up the staircase in the next area.  Light
the torch on your way up.
    You'll find another lamp to light at the top of the staircase.  Light this
lamp, then go back to the library.  Light the lamp to the right of the lower
bookcase.  This reveals another secret passage.  Go through the secret passage
to the next area.  Light the lamp in the next area.  Go back to the library.
    The wall on the left side of the library will be gone now.  Go on to the
next area by going to the left.
    In the next area, light both of the candles and collect the bloodstone.  Go
through the opening in the wall now.  You'll be on a balcony.  Go trough the
other opening in the wall on the balcony.  Activate all three candles to get
another bloodstone.
    Now, extinguish the left candles under both statues.  Now, a staircase will
appear.  Go up the staircase to get to the next area.  Move forward in the next
area.  Light the last candle.  Before you light the candle, you'll fight a boss.

          Boss: Valia Pira
    Based on what bloodstones you have equipped at the beginning of the battle,
this boss will not activate certain defenses.  Use what summons you have.  The
spell 'Reflect' will also be very helpful.  If you do use 'Reflect,' remember
that cure spells will be reflected as well as attack spells.

    After you beat the boss, light the torch and step on the glowing platform.
Press X (confirm).
    Zidane finally makes it back after you leave through the pillar of light.
Move back onto the circle that teleports you.  Kuja wants you to see him alone.
Follow his commands.  You'll see how your friends are doing.  After a few
scenes, your characters chase after Kuja.  Go out of Kuja's room and step on the
left platform.  You'll be in the docking bay.  Run for the Hilda Garde.
    When you get to where the Hilda Garde would be, you'll find out that it is
gone.  Run beyond there.  Pull the lever to activate the ladder, and run out of
the palace.  You'll follow the Hilda Garde 1 to the Lost Continent.

    Segment 7: Esto Gaza

    You are now on the world map.  Go west from the shore, to Esto Gaza.

      1. Talk to the bishop.
      2. Enter Mount Gulug.

    Walk into the house that you see.  A bishop will greet you.  After the
bishop talks with you for a while, you'll see a flashback of black mages
marching through Esto Gaza.  He tells you that the black mages went to Mount
    Walk up the stairs behind the bishop.  You will see a Save Moogle in the
next area.  Go to the right.  In the area that you arrive in, go into the
building you see.  You are now in Mount Gulug.

    Segment 8: Mount Gulug

    You are now inside Mount Gulug.

      1. Watch out for red dragons.
      2. Pull the lever down three times.
      3. Defeat Zorn and Thorn.
      4. Defeat Meltigemini.
      5. Go with Hilda to Lindblum.

    Go to the right, into the cabin.  Go through the cabin.  On the other side,
get on the rope and climb down and go to the right.  Go into the next cabin.
Inside is a Save Moogle.  Go out of the cabin.  Once out of the cabin, go on to
the next area.  Go up the staircase to look at the bulletin board to the right.
Then, go back to the area with the rope.  At this point, red dragons might
attack you.  Watch out for them whenever they come.

          Mini-Boss: Red Dragons
    You go into battle with two red dragons.  Use all of your water spells on
the dragons whenever you run into them.

    Go to the right of the rope this time.  You'll see a Save Moogle that will
sell you items.   Go back to the area with the rope now.  Pull the lever to the
left of the well down three times.  The rope falls down more.  Go down the rope.
Walk around the area until you arrive in until a red dragons comes through the
wall.  After defeating the red dragons, go through the opening they made in the
    In this area you see Eiko.  You'll see Zorn and Thorn extract the eidolons
from her, or at least try.  Zidane and his friends will run to save Eiko, while
Mog does something to help Eiko.  You now fight Zorn and Thorn as Eiko.  Eiko
automatically uses a summon you've never seen before, and she knocks Zorn and
Thorn down.  After the battle, Eiko talks with Zidane.  It turns out that Mog
was an eidolon.  After Kuja talks for a while, Zorn and Thorn merge together to
create Meltigemini.

          Boss: Meltigemini
    Use whatever summons you can.  Fight this like you would an average boss.
The 'Auto-Potion' ability will help a lot during this battle.  The spell
'Reflect'  will also help a lot.

    After the battle, Vivi comes up to you.  Kuja said that the black mage's
life span could not be increased.  After Vivi leaves, you'll hear a voice.
You'll follow the voice to find a woman.  Dagger will talk to her, then Regent
Cid will come in.  The woman is Hilda, Cid's lost wife.  You go with Hilda back
to Lindblum.

    Segment 9: Back in Lindblum/Search for the Princess

    Once back in Lindblum, Cid talks with Hilda.  Hilda turns Cid back into a

      1. Meet with Hilda.
      2. Talk to Beatrix.
      3. Find Dagger in the 'resting place.'

    You wake up as Zidane.  You'll find out that Hilda is calling a conference.
Go to the conference room.
    Once in the conference room, Hilda tells you what she knows about Kuja.  In
the middle of the conversation, you'll see an ATE (Active Time Event) of
Tantalus and Steiner.  Then, you see Hilda talking to Zidane's group again.  She
tells you that there is a connection to the other world, Terra, on a place
called the Shimmering Island.  There's a seal around the gate to the other
world, but Hilda says that the seal can be broken at a castle located in the
northern area of the Forgotten Continent.  Hilda calls the castle Ipsen's
Castle.  Then, you see another ATE (Active Time Event) of Cid telling his crew
to build the Hilda Garde 3.
    You see Zidane and his group again. Hilda is done telling you what she knows
about Kuja and the other world, Terra.  Steiner rushes in, telling you that he
cannot find Dagger.  Zidane goes with Steiner, thinking he knows where she is.
You see Tantalus looking for Dagger for a while, then you see Zidane in
Alexandria.  Zidane tries to talk to Beatrix, but Baku is the first to talk to
her.  After a conversation with Beatrix, she gives you an item and tells you to
look in the 'resting place' for Dagger.
    Zidane goes to the resting place and finds Dagger.  Dagger talks with
Zidane, she is no longer mute.  You'll see a movie where the Hilda Garde 3 is
tested.  In the movie, Dagger also cuts her hair short.  You see your characters
on the Hilda Garde 3 now.  Now, you can control the Hilda Garde 3.

    Segment 10: Ipsen's Castle

    Ipsen's Castle is marked on the map now.  Fly there in the Hilda Garde 3.

      1. Find Amarant by the map.
      2. Find Amarant again.

    When you enter Ipsen's Castle, Your character's talk in front of the door.
Amarant decides to go off by himself.  He challenges you to see who finds the
key to the seal first.  After Amarant leaves, you can enter Ipsen's Castle.
    Go through the archway in front of you.  Go across the room to the pole and
slide down it.  Go up the ladder and on to the next area.  Once in the next
area, go to the next area, where you will see a ladder.  Go down the ladder then
go up the ladder at the other end of the catwalk you are on.  Go to the top,
where you'll automatically jump off.  Go into the elevator.
    The elevator takes you to a room where Amarant is.  Amarant leaves, figuring
he is out of his contract with you.  You'll go look at the map on the wall.
Take all of the mirrors off of the wall.  Walk away from the map, and you'll
talk to the other members of your group.  Taharka will attack.

          Boss: Taharka
    Use a normal boss strategy on this monster: Powerful summons and attacks.
As usual, 'Auto-Potion' will help out a lot.  Poisoning Taharka will be a good

    After you defeat Taharka, you can control Zidane again.  Leave the castle.
Amarant is missing.  You'll go back inside to find him.  Go back to the room
with the pole.  Go down the pole.  You'll hear a groan.  Go towards the bottom
of the screen, where you'll find Amarant.  Go outside of the castle with
    Once outside, your characters talk about the meaning of the mirrors.  Then,
you are back on the Hilda Garde 3.  You are going to each of the locations at
the same time.  You are going two to a group.  Eiko goes with Dagger to the
shrine to the south: 'My power is protected underwater, surrounded by earth.'

    Segment 11: The Four Shrines/Shimmering Island

    You are now controlling the Hilda Garde 3.

      1. Find the Water Shrine.
      2. Find the Fire Shrine.
      3. Find the Wind Shrine.
      4. Find the Earth Shrine.
      5. Defeat the Earth Guardian.
      6. Find the Shimmering Island.

    You'll find the Water Shrine in the bay south of Ipsen's Castle.  Press
circle to enter the Water Shrine.  You leave Dagger and Eiko there.  Next,
Amarant and Freya are going to another shrine: 'My power is protected high atop
a fiery mountain.'
    You'll find the Fire Shrine inside a volcano on the Lost Continent.  Press
circle to enter it.  After that, you'll send Vivi and Steiner to the next
shrine.  'My power is protected behind a tornado.'  Look on the southern side of
the Forgotten Continent.  You'll find the Wind Shrine inside a small canyon.
Enter it with circle.
    Now, you and Quina are heading to the last location.  'My power is protected
under the shaking ground.'  You'll find the Earth Shrine just west of Kuja's
Palace.  You and Quina go to the Earth Shrine.  Go down into the Earth Shrine.
   Zidane will talk to Quina for a while, then the wall will close in front of
you, and Zidane and Quina jump back.  You now have to time your jumps so you
don't get crushed.  You'll see Dagger and Eiko now.  They have problems of their
own.  They're busy avoiding chunks of ice flying at them.  You'll see Zidane and
Quina arrive at the center of the shrine.  Go to put the mirror on the panel,
then you'll see Amarant and Freya.  Before anyone puts the mirrors on the
panels, the guardians of Terra come forth to challenge you.

          Boss: Earth Guardian
    Use Quina to cure and Zidane to attack.  Have Zidane use his most powerful
Dyne skills when he goes into a Trance.  If either character is equipped with
Gaia Gear, the Earth Guardian's earth elemental attacks will cure him instead of
hurt him.  A few good Dyne attacks should knock the guardian down.

    After you defeat the Earth Guardian, you'll get on the airship with the
others.  South of the Lost Continent, you'll find the Shimmering Island.  Enter
it with circle.  As you enter the island, you may never be able to return to
your world again.  You'll watch a movie of you entering through the gate into

    Segment 12: Terra

    Once you arrive in Terra, you'll be greeted by the old man that you saw when
Alexandria was being invaded.  Then, Dagger will come up to you and tell you
that everybody is waiting for Zidane.

      1. Follow the mysterious girl to Bran Bal.

    As you enter the next area, you'll see a figure.  Follow the figure to the
next area.  Once in the next area, you'll see the person again.  Follow the
person to the next area.  Once in the next area, go on to the next area.  Go
down the first spider web, then down the spider web to the left.  You'll meet up
with the mysterious girl you've been following.
    She tells you to follow her.  Follow her across the bridge.  In the area you
arrive in, go up the staircases.  You are now in Bran Bal.

    Segment 13: Bran Bal/Pandemonium

   After a movie and some events, you are controlling Zidane.

      1. Take Dagger to the inn.
      2. Go to the underground laboratory.
      3. Go to Pandemonium and talk to Garland.
      4. Fight the Silver Dragon, Garland, and Kuja.

    Go down the staircase to the left.  Go into the inn to the in on the left of
the area.  Zidane will go get Dagger so she can rest.  You'll see Eiko walking
around town.  Dagger will wake up back in the inn.  Dagger remembers that it was
not a storm that destroyed Madain Sari, but a large eye.  The same eye that
appeared when Alexandria was destroyed.
    After some dialogue, Zidane goes outside.  Go into the building in the upper
area of down and down into the basement.  Talk to the mysterious girl that
you've been following.  She tells you that the people that live in Bran Bal are
called Genomes.  Go upstairs after the girl finishes talking.  She will talk to
you there.  You'll learn a lot from the mysterious girl.  Then, you'll control
Eiko.  You'll see some ATEs (Active Time Events).  Go to the mysterious green
light you saw at the entrance of Bran Bal.  Go through there to talk to the
    Now you see Zidane.  You'll go to see Garland.  I won't spoil any of the
conversation, or what happens for a while afterwards.  Just accept that
eventually you'll wind up in Pandemonium, where you'll go into an end of disc
three showdown.

          Boss: Silver Dragon
    It's more important to make sure everyone stays healed in this battle then
to go offensive.  Use a normal boss strategy.  Remember that the bigger
challenge is coming after the dragon falls.

          Boss: Garland
    Give this battle all you've got.  Throw good weapons with Amarant, summon
Bahamut with Dagger, use gems (like Sapphire) to heal you, cast 'Meteor' with
Vivi, use powerful summons with Eiko, have Quina use the finest of Blue Magic
that he has, etc.  Make sacrifices in this battle.

          Boss: Kuja
    No matter how you fight, Zidane will probably be the only person alive at
the end of this battle.  Make sure Zidane doesn't die.  Use powerful Dyne
techniques when he goes into a Trance.  Have him equipped with the 'Auto-Potion'
ability, and have him heal himself frequently.  When he's taken enough damage,
Kuja goes into a Trance and casts Ultima.

    After Kuja defeats you, as Garland dies, he talks as he falls to his doom.
He prophecies that Kuja will die soon.  Kuja destroys most of Terra, and you
take his ship, the Invincible, back to Gaia.  However, Gaia is covered with Mist
as you end disc three.

Section VI: Disc Four
With Gaia covered in Mist, there's only one place that all of this could lead up
to: The Iifa Tree.

    Segment 1: Memoria

    You'll have to fly to the sphere on top of the Iifa Tree using the
Invincible.  As you enter, you'll see a movie where a flock of dragons will come
flying at the Invincible.  Regent Cid has a fleet of airships that will clear a
path for you.  You'll approach the purple sphere in another movie, then you'll
see Beatrix on the Red Rose.  Finally, the Invincible enters the purple sphere
in a movie, but first you must fight a boss.

      1. Defeat Nova Dragon.
      2. Defeat Maliris.
      3. Defeat Kraken.
      4. Defeat Lich.
      5. Defeat Deathguise.
      6. Defeat Trance Kuja.
      7. Defeat Necron.

          Boss: Nova Dragon
    You'll want to have either Dagger or Eiko in this battle.  Have them
equipped with the Whale Whisker, a weapon that allows them to cast Curaga.
You'll want to have the 'Auto-Life' and/or 'Auto-Regen' abilities during this
combat.  Have any person that casts spells have the 'Half MP' ability equipped
if it is available.  The 'Auto-Potion' ability probably won't do you much good
this late in the game.  You'll probably want to have two of any of the three in
your party: Amarant, Dagger, Eiko.  The reason is because each of them have a
revive spell.  Stock up on ethers before this battle: You'll need them to
recover MP that you'll use up on revive spells.  Physical attacks are probably
the best way to hurt the dragon.  This boss will be a test to how you'll do on
the set of bosses inside Memoria.

    After the Nova Dragon is defeated, your characters beam down to Memoria from
the Invincible.  Garland speaks to Zidane, telling Zidane that Memoria is a
place created by your eight party members' memories.
    As you enter, you'll see a magical sphere that allows you to save, switch
party members, or use a tent.  Move forward to the next area.  The next few
areas are pretty straight-forward.  Eventually, you'll run into a boss.

          Boss: Maliris
    Use generally the same strategy described in the battle with the Nova
Dragon, except remember that attacks by this boss aren't as devastating as
attacks by the Nova Dragon.  Watch out, because this boss casts 'Reflect.'  Make
sure not to cast any magic (summons are OK) when Maliris has 'Reflect' up.  When
'Reflect' is up, have Dagger or Eiko cast 'Cure' on it.  'Cure' will reflect and
heal one of your characters, and the 'Reflect' spell will be down after two
casts, since Maliris's 'Reflect' lasts for two casts.  Since Maliris uses
'Mustard Bomb,' have all of your characters have the 'Body Temp' ability
equipped.  Make sure you have a lot of HP left at the end of the battle, because
right before it dies, Maliris uses a devastating attack on all of your party

    After you defeat Maliris, go to the next room.  You'll watch a quick memory
of Alexandria being destroyed.  Go on to the next room and up the staircase.
You'll go into an area, where it is raining.  Move up the next staircase to the
right, and Zidane will stop and look down from the bridge.  There are two people
ready to board a small boat.  Dagger realizes that Zidane just saw her memory.
Garland will tell you another verse to his story, then you'll be able to go to
the next area.
    In the next area, you'll see the same eye that was present when Dagger's
birth mother was drowned.  Garland tells Zidane that the memory seen in the
previous area was Zidane's memory, not Dagger.  He tells you that you will find
out more later.  Once you can control Zidane again, go further up the stairway.
You'll run into a boss.

          Boss: Tiamat
    Fight this battle the way you have fought the other two boss battles in
Memoria so far.  Tiamat can absorb MP from your party members, so make sure that
you have a lot of ethers.  Tiamat will cast devastating spells like the Nova
Dragon did.  This boss will absorb things other then MP too, for example:
Strength.  As he gets weaker, this boss may counter your attacks with a
dangerous ability called 'Snort.'  This blows one character out of the battle.
That character counts as if s/he weren't even in your party.

    After Tiamat dies, proceed up the staircase.  In the next area, you'll go
further up the staircase.  In the area you arrive in after climbing the
staircase, you'll see an exclamation point appear over Zidane's head.  If you
press X, Zidane just shrugs.  You have found the ghost of a card game master.
Press square to challenge the ghost to a game of Tetra Master.  Go on to the
next area.
    In the next area, you'll hear a bell ringing.  Ignore the bell and go to the
next area.  In the next area, you'll see a picture of Terra assimilating Gaia.
Garland will talk to you, telling you that he created the Iifa Tree to help
Gaia.  You've learned all you can from this area.  Go on to the next area.  The
path turns sideways as you go back.  Once you arrive in the next area, you'll
see another orb that allows you to save, use a tent, or switch party members.
After the two bosses you just beat, you'll probably want to save.
    There is also a waterfall in this area.  Follow the path you can walk on to
the next area.  In this area, Quina thinks he is in an ocean and tries to swim.
Go to the next area.  In the area you arrive in, you find out from Garland that
Gaia was originally a planet covered in water.  Go up the stairs in this area
now.  Right before you go to the next area, you'll fight another boss.

          Boss: Kraken
    Before you enter this battle, you'll want to equip the 'Body Temp' ability
since Kraken likes to use the 'Freeze' spell.  You'll want to summon your most
powerful eidolon, preferably Bahamut.  Target Kraken's tentacles first.  Once
his two tentacles are weakened and cannot attack any more, you'll be receiving
only one third of the attacks you did before.  Don't have Vivi use a lot of
black magic since black magic doesn't work well against Kraken.

    After you defeat Kraken, go on to the next area.  In the corner of this
area, you'll be able to save, use a tent, or switch party members.  You'll also
find another card game master's ghost in this area.  Once in the next area,
you'll see a ladder.  As you walk toward the ladder, you'll see the birth of
your planet, Gaia.  Go up the ladder to the next area, where you will find two
more ladders to climb up.  Once you arrive in the area after that, walk around
the room until the room changes.  You'll immediately go into battle with Lich.

          Boss: Lich
    Before you enter this battle, equip the 'Locomotion' ability on as many
party members as possible.  Lich tends to cast spells that give you the 'Stop'
status effect a lot.  Once in the battle, the only real threat Lich gives is his
instant death attacks.  'Death' causes instant death, 'Doom' causes instant
death after a ten second countdown, and 'Lvl. 5 Death' automatically causes
instant death to all party members that have levels that are a multiple of five.

    After you defeat Lich, go through the archway.  This leads to a ledge.
Zidane will step into space.  Now that you're flying through space, move upwards
to he green light.  You'll talk to Garland.  He tells you about the crystal
(explain why a logo for this game is 'The crystal comes back.').  Garland will
leave you on your own now.
    You get to the Crystal World now.  Move ahead through some areas now.
Eventually, you'll arrive at an area where you'll see another orb.  The orb
allows you to save, use a tent, switch party members, or teleport back to the
entrance of Memoria.  However, once you teleport to the entrance, you'll have to
walk all the way back to the Crystal World.  Anyway, go to the next area.
You'll see Kuja in this area.  You'll also see the crystal.  Before you fight
Kuja, he sends a minion to fight you.

          Boss: Deathguise
    Have Dagger and/or Eiko healing 100% of the time.  Use all the other
strategies you've used in Memoria so far on this boss.  Vivi's 'Meteor' spell
does exceptional damage to Deathguise.

    Now, walk up to Kuja.  This may seem like the final showdown, but it isn't.

          Boss: Trance Kuja
    Note that this is not the last boss, so do not throw all your good items to
throw and try to keep 'Remedy' consumption as low as possible.  Use all the
strategies you've used so far in Memoria on Kuja.  Also note that Kuja casts

    As he dies, Kuja casts Ultima on his party, as he dies.  It's not over yet
though.  You are in a strange new place now.  A voice talks to you, telling you
about the zero world and why the crystal and all life should not exist.  You get
to choose your party of four.  The party members that are not participating give
their energy to heal the participating party members.  Don't worry, they're
still alive.  You get to visit the pause menu, where you should make your

          Last Boss Preparations:
    You'll want to equip every ability that protects from status effects, as
well as give everyone their best equipment.  Once you go out of the save menu,
it's time to fight the last boss.

          Last Boss: Necron
    An easy strategy to defeating Necron (and Kuja) is auctioning for 6 Dark
Matters per boss in Treno at the auction.  Use the Dark Matters to defeat
Kuja/Necron in record time.  (Thanks to hbo_ffix@hotmail.com for this
    If you don't have Dark Matters, then this battle *************************
is a little harder.  You'll want to heal all the     * Spells cast by Necron *
time with Eiko/Dagger with Curaga.  There's only one *                       *
threat that Necron has: His spell called Grand       * Blue Shockwave: Reduce*
Cross.  This spell gives you all sorts of status     * one party member to 1 *
effects.  Cure any effects you get with a 'Remedy.'  * hit point.            *
If one of your characters gets the 'Zombie' status   * Shell: Increases magic*
effect, hurry and cure it.  This status effect makes * defense.              *
the character undead.  All cure spells will damage   * Protect: Increases    *
him, and all life effects will miss.  If your        * physical defense.     *

spell.  Stay healed and watch out for Grand Cross,   * Blizaga: Powerful ice *
and you should survive this battle.                  * spell.                *

In addition to the main plot of Final Fantasy IX, there are many small
mini-games and

ticket booth.  You can also play jump rope at different points in the game, so
as long as you have Eiko or Vivi in your group.  In Disc Three and Four, you can

the moogles.
Now go down to Alexandria.  Speak to the moogle at the bell tower.  Now deliver

Central and give the Superslick to the moogles.  Mognet Central is now fixed.
You'll get a Protect Ring for your troubles.

patio outside, you can search the patio and find the Running Shoes.

    Segment 5: Catching Frogs

Quina can get items and skills from catching various frogs in Qu's Marsh.

    Segment 6: Racing Hippaul

If you take Vivi to see Hippaul in the main street of Alexandria at the
beginning of disc three, you'll be able to race Hippaul.  If you beat Hippaul,
you'll get quite a handsome reward.

    Segment 7: Mr. Morrid's Coffee

Inside at the hut at the base of the Observatory Mountain by Dali, there is a
man inside named Mr. Morrid who demands coffee.  By collecting the three coffees
and returning them to Mr. Morrid by the end of disc three, you can get a reward.

 Coffee     | Location
Moccha      | At the South Gate entrance near the Chocobo Forest
Kirman      | On Eiko's back porch at her home in Madain Sari
Burman      | During the Card Tournament in Treno, head down to Dali and enter
            | the mayor's house to search for a key.  Move quietly, or you will
            | awake the sleeping boy.  Search the mayor's desk three times, then
            | check the stove to get the key.  Use the key to go in the locked
            | door in the windmill.  Find a chest on the right side of the
            | chocobo pen to get some cash.  Search it again for the coffee.

Drop off all the coffee at Mr. Morrid's house, and he'll deliver an item to
Tantalus's hideout in Lindblum.

    Segment 8: Namingway Card

    Segment 10: Excalibur

If you go to Daguerro in disc four and talk to a man in the library, he will ask
you to find a Magic Fingertip.  The item is on sale in the Treno auction and has
a big price tag, so get lots of cash to buy it.  Take the item back to the man
in the library for the Excalibur.

    Segment 11: Excalibur 2

This is probably the hardest part of Final Fantasy IX.  If you reach the Memoria
Terrace in under 12 hours, there will be a chest there in the right corner
containing the Excalibur 2.

    Segment 12: Garnet's Name

At the beginning of disc four, go to Eiko's house with Dagger and talk to Lani,
who will run away.  Reenter Madain Sari without Dagger or Amarant in your party.
Talk to Lani twice.
Now go to the Eidolon Wall.  Walk clockwise from the entrance until you hear a
chime.  Then turn around and walk around the wall counterclockwise until a chime
is heard.  Turn around and go clockwise again.  Keep turning around each time
you hear a chime.  Eventually, all your HP, MP, and status conditions will be
Now you can comprehend the pictures.  Check each one, then check the picture of
Ifrit again.

    Segment 13: Hades

In Memoria, you will enter a room where Quina tries to swim.  Check the coral on
the right side of the room and you will find a hidden boss, Hades.

          Boss: Hades
    This is a very hard boss.  Make sure you're on a nice high level before you
fight Hades.  Use Zidane, Dagger, Vivi, and Steiner.  Cast Reflect on Dagger and
have Vivi bounce Flare spells off of Dagger onto Hades.  Using Steiner's Shock
ability and Zidane's attacks, Hades should die as long as you heal everybody
with Garnet.  (Keep in mind that spells will bounce off of Garnet.)

    Segment 14: Friendly Monsters

Throughout the game, there are battles you will encounter with monsters that
will beg for items instead of attacking you.  These monsters are in the
following locations:

    Segment 15: Ragtime Mouse's Trivia

Occasionally you'll run into a battle that will initially sound like you're
fighting a friendly monster.  But, instead you'll run into the Ragtime Mouse.
Ragtime Mouse will ask you true/false questions about the game.  Ragtime Mouse
will rewards you based on how many questions you got right.  The Ragtime Mouse
is ocated in the same areas as the friendly monsters are.

    Segment 16: Ozma

Once you have fought all of the friendly monsters and can access the Chocobo Air
Garden, go to the Air Garden and to the green stone in the wall on the left.
Check the stone and you will fight an extraordinarily hard boss.

          Boss: Ozma
    Be sure to equip all characters with their best equipment and with Antibody
and Clear-Headed before the battle.  If you have anything that protects against
shadow damage, be sure to equip that.  Fight Ozma using your most powerful
attacks.  You should be able to beat it if you fight effectively.

    Segment 17: Playing Blackjack

Wait until "The End" appears at the end of the game.  Then press R2, L1, R2, R2,
Up, X, Right, Circle, Down, Triangle, L2, R1, R2, L1, Square, Square, Start.
You'll be able to play a cool little game of Blackjack.

long-legged chickens: Chocobos!

    To play 'Chocobo Hot & Cold,' you need a chocobo.  You can get a chocobo
once you leave Lindblum for Gizamaluke's Grotto.  Go to the Chocobo Forest,
between Dragon's Gate and South Gate.  Once you enter, a moogle will greet you.
You'll get a chocobo name Choco.  You can call him to your service by using
Gyshal Greens (which you can buy from the moogle) on chocobo footprints on the
world map (similar to those in Final Fantasy 7).  Once you get Choco, go outside
the forest and call him with Gyshal Greens.  Go inside the forest with him.

    Segment 2: 'Chocobo Hot & Cold'

    'Chocobo Hot & Cold' can only be played if you have Chocographs.
Chocographs are pieces of stone that tell you where to look for buried treasure.
Where do you find these pieces?  In places such as the Chocobo Forest.

    Segment 3: Finding Chocographs/Locations

    You'll start by looking in Chocobo Forest for Chocographs.  To find
Chocographs, you must talk to the moogle and pay him some money to dig in the
area.  You are given a time limit.  You can look in the following places for

          Location: (name of area)

    Segment 4: How to Play Chocobo Hot & Cold

    Control Pad: Move Around
    Square: Dig
  When you dig with square, Choco lets you know how close you are to a treasure.
When he finds it, just dig, dig, dig!

                       - Choco's Cries -
      'Kweh' means there's nothing.
      'Kweh!?' means it's far away.
      'Kwehhh!?' means you're close.
      'K-KWEHHH!!!' means you've found something!

  Rare treasures are buried deep.  Once you find something, dig with square
until 'Depth' reaches zero (0).

    Segment 5: Beak Levels & Abilities

    When you dig for Chocographs, you will usually get other items.  No matter
what you dig up, you get points.  Points are used to level up Choco's beak.
When Choco's beak levels up, you can dig up things quicker.  The higher Choco's
beak level, the quicker the depth of a buried item will decrease when you peck
at it.
    You can get special bonuses for points, as follows:
          Item dug up is a piece of a Chocograph or a Chocograph: 5 bonus points
          Item found in less than 5 seconds from the time the last item was
              found: 5 bonus points
          Item was dug up after the 4th was dug up in a single time period:
              Double Points

    You need certain abilities to get to certain locations.  These abilities can
be gotten by finding buried treasure.  When you open a treasure chest that gives
you an ability, smoke will come out of it and you will feel sleepy.  Choco will
wake up in Chocobo's Dream World.  In Chocobo's Dream World, the God of Chocobos
(who is a little overweight) will give Choco his new ability.
