    01. Introduction
    
    •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
    
    Hello,  and  welcome  to  my  Final  Fantasy  IX™  unofficial  strategy
    guide/FAQ.  Final  Fantasy  IX™ is one of the greatest RPGs EVER, in my
    humble  opinion.  It combines classic RPG gameplay from yesteryear, and
    combines   it   with   lovable   characters   who   are  memorable  and
    unforgettable,    state-of-the-art    graphics    and    CG   (computer
    graphics...aka  FMV), and a stunning score which makes the game feel so
    great  to  play.  The  battle  system  is  classic Final Fantasy™, with
    Squaresoft's  touch  that can never be duplicated. Final Fantasy IX™ is
    better  then  Chrono  Cross™,  but  just barely. They both have awesome
    gameplay,  great  graphics,  and a terrific score, as well as memorable
    characters,  but  Final  Fantasy IX™ just has that "old school" feel to
    it,  with  all  of  the dragons, castles, princesses, Moogles, and even
    flying  airships.  If you liked the old Final Fantasy™ games like Final
    Fantasy  IV™  or  Final  Fantasy  VI™,  then I strongly recommend Final
    Fantasy  IX™. Hell, there are even some parts of Final Fantasy IX™ that
    closely resemble Final Fantasy I™! Oh, and there are some references to
    the  other PlayStation™ Final Fantasy™ games, like one to Final Fantasy
    VII™,  when  you  can  find  a  "flower  girl" in a certain area of the
    game...
    
    
    The  Part which you are reading right now (Part I), contains everything
    that  someone  might  need  to  play  the  game.  It  has  the complete
    walkthrough  for  the  game,  all  of  the shop information, as well as
    character information and some tips & tricks for your game. If you just
    wanted  to  beat  the  game straight through, then this is the document
    that  you  would want to read. However, if you would like to see all of
    the  little  details of the game, and even all of the smaller things in
    the game, then read Part II of this FAQ.

    • Okay, I give up. I created two parts for this FAQ. It was just too much
      of a hassle to type up some walkthrough, then scroll down to the Shops
      section and add some info there, then scroll wayyy down to the bottom
      of the document to update the Mognet Letters section or ATEs section,
      and so on, so I decided to split the guide up into two parts. One
      focusing on the main things you want to know while playing the game
      (walkthrough, shops info., status effects), while the second part
      contains "everything else" that is not necessary to beat the game,
      but is very good to know (items/weapons/armor, abilities, 'extras' like
      Mognet Letters, ATEs, Mini-Games, and Moogle Locations).

    "Here" Icon: This icon is in the shape of a hand (in a white glove), and will
                 guide your character on the Field Screen. This helps to show
                 the position of your character on the Field Screen. This feature
                 can be manually shut on or off on the Configure Menu.
    
    
    Saving your game: There are two ways that you can save your game in Final
                      Fantasy IX: Either save your game on the World Map anytime
                      by summoning a Moogle, or locating a Moogle on the Field
                      Map. Moogles are those tiny, cat-like animals that are
                      usually in key-areas in the game, where it's a good idea
                      to save your game before moving on. When you talk to the
                      Moogle, you have a few choices on what to do:
    
    			 Save: Saves your game.
                             Tent: Allows you to heal the HP and MP of your current
    			       party, if you have a Tent item.
                             Mognet: Allows Moogles to communicate, and will let
                                     your character deliver letters between
    				 Moogles.
                             Cancel: Lets you leave the Moogle.
    
    
    "!" Icon: This icon appears above an area where there is an Item that can be
              picked up on the Field Screen. If you happen to come across an
              important item, a "!" will pop-up, indicating there is an item at
              that spot. This is awesome, because it makes finding extra stuff
              like Gil and healing items easier to find than in previous games.
    
    ATB (Active Time Battle): Time during battle is managed by the ATB system.
                              There are 2 ATB modes: Active and Wait. You can
                              select them in the Configure Menu:
    
    				     -ATB Mode-
    
                              Active  Always real-time (time never stops during
                                      battle).
    
                              Wait    Time stops while you are selecting Magic and
                                      items.
    
                              Wait is better suited for beginners (novices), while
                              Active is more for advanced players.
    
    Damage Points: Numbers and details pop up during battle whenever your HP and
                   MP change. Numbers appear in 2 different colors:
    
                                  -Damage Points-
    
                   9999  HP Change:
                         White numbers indicate damage.
                         Green numbers indicate HP recovery.
    
                   9999  MP Change:
                         White numbers indicate loss.
                         Green numbers indicate MP recovery.
    
                                   -Damage Details-
    
                   Miss       When an attack misses.
                   Critical   When you deal greater damage than usual.
                   Death      When you get KO'd.
                   Guard      When status attacks and elemental attacks have no
                              effect.
    
    Order Option: The Order Option involves not only the lineup but also the battle
                  position. There are 2 battle positions: Front row and back row.
    
                                -Front Row and Back Row-
    
                  Front Row  You can deal big damage with Attack, but you can also
                             receive big damage.
    
                  Back Row   You can only deal small damage with Attack, but you
                             receive less damage from attacks.
    
                  You can change this setting in the Option (Config Menu). You can
                  also switch between the front and back row during battle, by
                  selecting Change. If you use magic or long-range weapons, you
                  can deal just as much damage from the back row as you can from
                  the front row. In tough battles, adjusting battle posistions
                  appropriately might save your life.
    
    Trance: When Trance occurs, the character transforms. Your power increases
            while under Trance. In addition to greater attacking power, you
            receive new battle commands. It's really amazing how much you can
            change. Some facts about Trance:
    
                                       -About Trance-
    
            1. The Trance Gauge increases as you take hits from the enemy.
            2. The Trance Gauge does not increase if you get hit by other party
               members.
            3. If you get afflicted by Zombie, the Trance Gauge goes down
               completely.
            4. When the Trance Gauge fills up completely, it's party time!
    
    
                            -Conditions that Stop/Prevent Trance-
    
            1. End of a battle: Trance Gauge goes back down to zero.
            2. During battle: Trance Gauge decreases to zero as you take actions
                              during battle.
    
            The origin of Trance is hostility. The hostile energy of the enemy's
            attacks induces Trance. That's why being attacked by your allies
            can't cause Trance. There is also an ability that help you achieve
            Trance faster. The Trance Gauge appears both in battle and in the
            Status Menu, which is under the Main Menu. Unfortunately, not everyone
            can achieve Trance.
    
    
    Abilities: Abilities are special powers that all characters possess. Using them
               wisely is the key to victory. There are tons of different abilites,
               but gererally, they fall into 2 categories:
    
                                     -Types of Abilites-
    
               Action Abilites:
                   Magic and special moves you can use in battle; consume MP.
    
               Support Abilities:
                   Special abilities that support you in battle (must equip magic
                   stones to use them).
    
               You need MP to use magic and special moves. Maximum MP increases
               as you level up. Support abilities must be equipped with magic
               stones to be functional. Like MP, the maximum number of these
               stones increases as you level up. The Main Menu shows 2 numbers
               for magic stones: the remaining number and the maximum number.
    
                                       -Magic Stones-
    
               Remaining Number (Decreases as you Equip Support Abilites.)
                |
               @99/99
                    |
                    Maximum number (Increases as you level up.)
    
               To set magic stones on support abilities, select Ability in the
               Main Menu and select Equip. There are round slots next to each
               support ability. The ability is equipped if a magic stone appears
               inside the slot. The menu shows which support abilities have bee
               equipped.
    
                                     -Ability Status-
    
               Shaded "O" Ability Name: Not Equipped.
               Blue "0" Ability Name: Equipped.
    
               In general, you have to equip items to learn abilities. Most items
               hold special powers that help draw out your inborn abilities. You
               could say the items work to free your latent abilities. Select
               Equip in the Main Menu to check which abilities you can learn from
               items. The abilities you cannot learn are grayed out.
    
                               -Which Abilities Can Be Learned?-
    
               Red "0"-A (Ability Name): Ability that can be learned.
               Blue "0"-S (Ability Name): Ability that can be learned.
               Gray "0"-A (Ability Name): Ability that cannot be learned.
               Gray "0"-S (Ability Name): Ability that cannot be learned.
    
               Abilities can be used as soon as you equip them. However, they
               cannot be used once you remove the item. To use abilities without
               equipping items, you must learn them by gaining enough AP for
               each ability. You can gain AP through battle.
    
                                      -AP Gauge-
                                          ____________
               Red "0"-A (Ability Name): |_______*_*_*|
                                           ____________
               Blue "0"-S (Ability Name): |_______*_*_*|
                        The character has gained enough AP to use the ability
                        without equipping an item.
                                           ____________
                Red "0"-A (Ability Name): |__50/100____|
                                            ____________
                Blue "0"-S (Ability Name): |__50/100____|
                         The character must equip the item to use the ability until
                         more AP is gained.
    
                Press "X" in the Status Menu to view all the learned abilities.
                Each ability requires different amounts of AP to learn.
    
    
    Character Stats: The character stats are displayed in the Battle Menu, and
                     show specific strengths/weaknesses of your characters
                     (party members). Here are what they mean:
    
     Speed- Speed determines how fast the character's ATB Guage fills up (the
            higher the value, the faster the character can act).
    
    
     Strength- Strength determines the severity of a physical attack.
    
    
     Magic- Magic determines the amount of damage caused by magic and summon
            attacks.
    
    
     Spirit- Spirit affects the character's attack and defense. Higher values
             enhance your ability to Steal, Counter, and deal critical damage.
             Also, the character's Spirit determines how long status effects
             remain and how quickly the Trance Gauge fills.
    
     Attack- Attack determines the amount of damage the character deals using
             physical attacks.
    
     Defense- Defense reduces the amount of damage the character receives from
              physical attacks.
    
     Evade- Evade determines the character's ability to dodge physical attacks.
    
     Magic Defense- Magic Defense reduces the amount of damage the character
                    receives from magic attacks.
    
     Magic Evade- Magic Evade determines the character's ability to dodge magic
                  attacks.
    
    
    Synthesizing: In addition to regular shops where you can buy and sell items,
                  there are synthesis shops, where you can synthesize items to
                  create new items. All you need are 2 items to serve as the base
                  and a few Gil to cover labor. The items you need and the amount
                  of money you pay vary for each synthesized item.
    
                                - Synthesis Example-
    
                  The Ogre
                  (Required item 1) Mage Master
                  (Required item 2) Mage Master
                  (Cost)            700 Gil
    
                  Desert Boots
                  (Required item 1) Leather Hat
                  (Required item 2) Leather Shirt
                  (Cost)            300 Gil
    
                  Long ago, there were rumors saying there's a Legendary Synthesist
                  who can create the best items...
    
    
    Elemental Properties: There are a total of 8 Elemental Properties: Fire, Ice,
                          Thunder, Earth, Water, Wind, Holy, and Shadow. Applying
                          these Elemental Properties to your attacks and defense
                          makes battles a lot easier. But your enemies can take
                          advantage of them as well, so watch out. To apply them,
                          you'll have to understand their natures.
    
                                     -Elemental Properties-
    
                          Fire      Effective against ice and undead monsters.
                          Ice       Effective against insects, large enemies, and
                                    fire and dragon-type monsters.
                          Thunder   Effective against enemies near water.
                          Earth     Ineffective against flying monsters.
                          Water     Effective against fire monsters.

                          Shadow    Effective against holy monsters.
    
                          There is also a Non-elemental Property, which is not
                          affected by any elemental property.
    
    
    Tetra Master Card Game: Tetra Master is a game played world-wide, but the only
                            way to see if someone plays is to challenge them. Tetra
                            Masters never back down from a Challenge. To challenge
                            people, walk up to them and press SQUARE.
    
                                         -Tetra Master Rules 1-
    
                            Select 5 cards in your possession to play.
    
                                         -Tetra Master Rules 2-
    
                            1. Put down a card by your opponet's card.
                            2. If an arrow on your card points to your opponet's
                               card, you can win his/her card.
    
                                         -Tetra Master Rules 3-
    
                            If an arrow on your card faces the arrow on your
                            opponet's card, a card battle begins. If your card
                            wins the card battle, you win the opponet's card. If
                            your card loses the card battle, the opponent wins
                            your card.
    
                                         -Tetra Master Rules 4-
    
                            If you have to battle 2 or more cards, you can choose
                            the opponent's card that you want to battle.
    
                                         -Tetra Master Rules 5-
    
                            The game ends once all the cards are played, and the
                            person with the most cards is the winner.
    
                                         -Tetra Master Rules 6-
    
                            The winner gets to take the loser's card(s).

    Status Effects: Status effects occur during battle when a certain spell or
                    an item, or even an attack. These status effects change
                    the "status" of a party member, or even the entire party
                    itself.

    Here is the walkthrough for Final Fantasy IX. If you need to find somethin'
    fast without searching through this entire section, just head up to the
    Table of Contents, find the semi-section in the walkthrough, find what number
    it is, then hit "Ctrl + F" on your keyboard, and enter the number of the
    section you are looking for, and ka-ching! You've found your section.
    
    EXAMPLE: Let's say you want to find "Disc 04 Walkthrough" section in the
             walkthrough. The number for this section is "005", as seen in the
             Table of Contents at the top of this document. So, all you have to
             do is press "Ctrl + F", then enter "005" into the box on what to
             find, and there ya go!
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    
     002: Disc 01 Walkthrough
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    You  will begin the game by watching a spectacular (yet somewhat short)
    FMV.  Once  it  all  ends, you take control of Zidane Tribal, in a dark
    place.  You'll  be  carrying  around a candle, and your objective is to
    light the bigger candle in the center of the room. But before doing so,
    check  the  northwest corner of the room to find 47 Gil. Now search the
    area  across  from  it  (the northeast corner), to find a Potion! Check
    below where you got the Potion to see a sign that reads:
    
                          = M.S. Prima Vista, Theater Ship =
    
                           Class: Luxery liner with theater
                                 Tonnage: 8235 tonnes
                                  Guest Capacity: 288
                                Propulsion: Veil energy
                             Shipwright: Zebolt Shipyards
                              Port of Registry: Lindbulm
    
    
    Now  head  to  the  center  of  the  room and light the candle. A large
    "thing"  will  enter the room, and you'll begin a mini-boss fight. This
    fight  is  really  easy,  since it's basically a tutorial fight. Before
    killing off the guy, though, steal all of his items, which include Mage
    Master and Potion. After the fight, watch the cut-scenes.

    You'll  begin  this  segment of the game as Vivi. After the little girl
    helps  you  out,  you  will take control of him. Search to your left to
    find  a  Potion,  then enter the house to the right. Inside, speak with
    Grandma,  then  search  the bed to find grandma's savings of 9 Gil. Now
    search  to  the  right  of  the ladder to find a Potion, then climb the
    ladder.  Up  here,  you'll find a Fang Card, then leave the house. Back
    out here, head north, and you'll find a Potion to the northwest part of
    the  street,  and  continue  north, to where all of the little kids are
    running to. Once in this part of town, enter the Tavern, and search the
    southwest  part  of  the  room  to find a Flan Card, then 27 Gil on the
    floor near a table. Check the southeast portion of the tavern to find a
    Potion, and speak to everyone here while you're at it.
    
    
    Exit the Tavern, and check the grass across from it to find the Goblin
    Card.  Continue into the next part of town (follow the kids), and enter
    the Shop here. Search it to find 38 Gil on the floor, then speak to the
    shop owner if you'd like:
    
    Potion................050 Gil
    Phoenix Down..........150 Gil
    Antidote..............050 Gil
    Eye Drops.............050 Gil
    Tent..................800 Gil
    
    
    Leave  the  shop, and continue north into the Square, and check out the
    center  ticketbooth,  and  show the ticketmaster your ticket, and he'll
    tell  you it's a fake, and he'll give you these to cheer you up: Goblin
    Card, Fang Card, and the Skeleton Card. Check out the sign north of the
    ticketbooth to see that it reads:
    
                         = The Three Heroic Knights of Pluto =
    
      This statue was built to commermorate the three knights who fought bravely
                          in the 15th Lindblum War, in 1601.
    
    
    Now  enter the house to the right of this sign, and search the floor to
    find some Ether. Enter the second room of this shop/house, and read the
    sign near the guy looking for swords:
    
    
                      = Recuiting New Knights of Pluto Members =
    
                           We are always looking for recuits
                    for the Knights of Pluto in Alexandria Castle!
                            Come, all you brave young men!
                           Let us protect the queen, and our
                             beautiful country, together!
    
                                         Captain, Knights of Pluto
    
    Exit  this  shop,  and  head  into  the  alleyway to the west, near the
    jumproping  girls. By the way, you can jump-rope with them if you wish,
    as  a  small mini-game. In the alleyway, watch the little mis-hap, then
    you  will encounter Rat Kid. Speak to him, and tell him your ticket was
    a  fake.  He'll  then  offer  to let you see the show if you become his
    slave. Agree, then watch out for him. Say the coast is clear, and he'll
    steal  the ladder. He runs off, but after he does, Alleyway Jack comes.
    Speak  to him to return to the Tavern, and to learn the card game. When
    you  are finished, return to the alleyway, and head the way the Rat Kid
    run off earlier with the ladder.
    
    
    Continue to follow him into the next area, and try to climb the ladder.
    As  you  do, a moogle named Kupo falls down on you. Climb up the ladder
    when  told  to, then follow Rat Kid along the roof-tops. Along the way,
    he'll  ask you your name, so name Vivi. After the road across the roofs
    is  over,  you'll  both  enter  the castle to watch the play. Enjoy the
    awesome cut-scenes. ^_^
    
    
    After  it  all  ends, you'll pick up play as Zidane and the others in a
    fight  on  stage. You can't steal, so just take out the two outer goons
    first,  then  attack King Leo in the center. After enough damage, he'll
    retreat.  Watch  some more cut-scenes, until you engage in a swordfight
    with  someone (Blank) near the audience. He'll give you random commands
    (like  Square,  or Up), and you'll need to follow them as accurately as
    possible. The more accurate you do them, the more audience members (out
    of 100, plus the Queen herself) will be pleased and impressed with your
    performance.  The  higher  the number of audience members impressed and
    the  Queen,  the  more  Gil they will shower you with. The highest I've
    gotten  was:  97/100  members  impressed,  plus  the  Queen  was  quite
    impressed, and they showered me with 873 Gil.

    You'll regain control of Zidane in the Castle after the play has ended.
    Climb  the  stairs,  and watch the cut-scene as the Princess runs away.
    After all of the cut-scenes have ended, you'll take control of Steiner,
    the  soldier.  Head north of the stairway, and enter the balcony. Speak
    to  the soldiers, then head downstairs, then run right of the screen to
    enter the library. Check out the bookshelf which reads:
    
    
                              § Ice Cavern, Alexandria §
    
    
                               A natural cavern overrun
                                 with everlasting ice.
    
    
    Exit  the  library, then enter the room to the right of the stairs, and
    into  the  next  library,  and  check  out the northern bookshelf which
    reads:
    
    
    			§ Village of Dali, Alexandria §
    
    
                                A farming village near
                                 the Lindbulm border.
    
    
    Return to where you began as Steiner, and head through the door that is
    across  from  the  stairway, and into the dressing room of the Knights.
    Tell  the two Knights to get going, then save your game with the Moogle
    in here. Now check out the list near the door that reads:
    
    Knights of Pluto Register
    
      I. Captain Steiner (or whatever you named Steiner)
      II. Blutzen
      III. Kohel
      IV. Laudo
      V. Dojebon
      VI. Breireicht
      VII. Weimar
      VIII. Haagen
      IX. Mullenkedheim
    
    Sorta ironic who it only lists "IX" soldiers eh? ;) Return to the Queen
    on  the  outer  balcony,  and get the Silk Shirt from her. Re-enter the
    castle,  and  go  downstairs to the room that leads to the library, but
    instead  of heading left or right, run TOWARDS the screen, and exit the
    castle. Run forward, and speak to the knights here, then head south and
    speak  to  the  knight  near  the  water. Tell him to go search for the
    princess,  then  head  west  of  the fountains to find two conversating
    Knights.  Speak  to  them,  then  enter the castle here, and run up the
    stairs, past the guard, and onto the balcony.
    
    
    Watch  the  funny  FMV,  then  you'll  take  over as Zigane. Follow the
    Princess, speak to her in the next room, then follow her again down the
    stairs.  Watch  the  cut-scenes, then once you are in the lower-part of
    the ship, enter the door near the Princess to meet up with Steiner, and
    engage  in battle with him. Begin by stealing his Leather Hat, and Silk
    Shirt.  Now  just beat him down until the fight ends. Continue to watch
    the  cut-scenes, and fight Steiner once more. After it all ends, you'll
    end  up crashed-up in a forest, and the Princess is missing. It's up to
    you to find her.
    
    
    Watch the A.T.E. that the Moogle points out to you to see both Vivi and
    the  Princess  somewhere  else  in  the forest. Save your game with the
    Moogle,  then check near the ship to find a Phoenix Down. Now run south
    of the Moogle, and enter the Evil Forest.

    • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • -
    
    Enter  the forest, and head east to the next screen to find Vivi, and a
    monster  who  has taken the Princess hostage. You'll begin a fight with
    the Prison Cage enemy.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    PRISON CAGE
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 06     HP: 513    Weak against: Fire     Spoils: Phoenix Downs, Potion
    AP: 03        Steal: Leather Wrist, Broadsword
    
    This  mini-boss  battle  isn't too hard, but it's up to you to keep the
    Princess  alive  by  healing  her  every  so  often with a Potion. Why?
    Because  the Prison Cage holds her hostage, and it'll use Absorb, which
    takes HP from her, and uses it to heal itself. Try to heal her whenever
    her HP drops below 20 HP. After enough damage, the Prison Cage will run
    away, taking the Princess with it.
    
    
    Watch  the  cut-scene,  then  fight another Prison Cage that holds Vivi
    hostage.  Use  the same tactics as before, but this time, you shouldn't
    have to heal Vivi, since he'll cast Fire on the Prison Cage, which will
    make  this  fight  a snap. The Prison Cage will poison Vivi and Steiner
    before  it  dies,  and  you'll end up back in the Ship. When you regain
    control  of  Zidane, check out the hidden chest near the globe for some
    Bronze Gloves. Now head south of the Globe to activate a few A.T.E's:
    
    
    The Escape: Steiner is trapped in a room (still), and he wishes to escape. He
                tries to think of a way to get out, but alas, it doesn't work.
    	    He still doesn't feel too good, so he sits down. As he does this,
    	    he finds a ragged doll that says 'Princess Garnet, age 15', and
    	    he freaks out, saying how could someone put her name on such a
    	    ragged doll, and that the Princess is 16, not 15.
    
    The Girl Who was Left Behind: This one shows a girl by the name of Ruby, who
                                  is all alone way back at the Tavern in Alexandria.
                                  She's wondering where "everybuddy" went, and she
                                  doesn't know what to do now that nobody is around.
    
    My Little Baby: This one shows Cinna outside of the crashed ship, and he's
                    looking for something. He curses a few times, and keeps looking
                    for his Garnet doll. He wonders how in the world he's supposed
                    to sleep now, and thinks that it probably caught fire in the
                    crash.
    
    
    After watching these ATEs, you'll take control of Zidane once more. Run
    down  the  stairs,  and talk to the two people down here to learn about
    Vivi, and the Evil Forest. Before checking up on Vivi, search the chest
    to the left of the stairs to find a Wrist. Now run right, and enter the
    door,  and  into  the  room  where Vivi is sleeping. In here, check the
    chest near the door for some Ether, then speak with Vivi. Now climb the
    ladder  of  the bunk-bed, and you'll find 116 Gil at the top! Leave the
    room.
    
    
    Out  here, watch the short flashback, then choose to save the Princess.
    Speak  with  the  person  in  red,  then  head  through the door behind
    him/her.  In  here, search the chest to find some more Ether, then head
    down  the  stairs,  and  into  the  room  with the 2 people. Search the
    northwest part of the room to find a Rubber Helm. Now enter the eastern
    door  to speak with Baku, the boss. After speaking with him, search the
    chest  to  find  a  Potion,  then go back the way Baku left. Ignore him
    momentarily,  then  head  south  and  into  the next room. Go right and
    search the chest for a Leather Hat, then return to Baku, and fight him.

    BAKU
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: N/A    HP: 500+   Weak against: N/A      Spoils: N/A
    AP: N/A       Steal: Iron Helm
    
    This  is another mini-boss fight, and it isn't all that hard. Start off
    by stealing an item from him (I got a Hi-Potion), then go off and begin
    to actually attack him. Every few of his turns he'll trip, and give you
    an  extra  attack.  You  shouldn't have to heal yourself in this fight,
    since it's so easy.
    
    
    After  the  fight,  speak with the people around you, then head back up
    the  stairs,  and  enter the chamber where Steiner is. Talk to him, and
    after  you  exit  the  room,  re-enter  it, and search the chest for an
    Ether.   Now  head  back  to  the  room  where  Vivi  lies.  After  the
    conversation,  return  to  where  you fought Baku, then head south, and
    into  the  room where you got the Leather Hat earlier. You will receive
    Blank's  Medicine  after you meet up with Blank in this room, and he'll
    give you this tip:
    
    
       Don't forget to
       set your _abilities_.
    
       Leaving the band is your business,
       but you better keep training!
       Learning more abilities is
       gonna make you even stronger.
    
    
       Good luck,
       Baku
    
    You'll end up back outside, where you can shop with Cinna:
    
    Potion................050 Gil
    Phoenix Down..........150 Gil
    Antidote..............050 Gil
    Eye Drops.............050 Gil
    Tent..................800 Gil
    
    
    Now  head  south,  and  run  to  where you met up with Vivi in the Evil
    Forest  (where  you  first  fought  the  Prison  Cage enemy). This will
    activate an A.T.E:
    
    
    Orchestra in the Forest: This shows what is going on back at the Ship, with
                             the band and a conductor. They all want to liven the
                             place up, and make their music do the fighting against
                             the monsters. As they begin, Baku comes downstairs,
                             and says that he's gonna go take a look around, and
                             he'll be right back...
    
    
    When the ATE ends, head north, and into the hole and run downwards. Now
    run  forward,  and  go  east up the ramp, and into the next area with a
    Moogle, and a spring. This will bring up an automatic ATE:
    
    
    Do as I say, Not as I do: This one shows Blank and Baku talking to each other
                              on the ship. He gives Blank a map, and says it's
                              gonna be a long trip back to Lindblum.
    
    
    Drink  out of the spring if you wish, to restore your HP and MP of your
    entire  party,  and  use the Moogle to save if you want. Now head east,
    and onto the next screen. Now run north across a few screens, until you
    reach the Princess, who is being held hostage by a giant, redish plant.

    PLANT BRAIN:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 07     HP: 533    Weak against: Fire     Spoils: Phoenix Downs, Potion
    AP: 05        Steal: Eye Drops, Iron Helm
    
    Plant Brain isn't all that hard, but he can become tiresome eventually.
    He  uses  attacks  like  Pollen,  and Thunder which can cause damage to
    either one individual, or the entire party. It's best to steal some Eye
    Drops with Zidane first, then attack, and to use Sword Magic as Steiner
    repeatily.  Also,  Black  Magic (Fire) as Vivi works very well, but not
    quite  as  well  as  Steiner's Sword Magic (Fire Sword) attacks. Beware
    though,  your  chances  of connecting with a physical attack is slim to
    none,  and  slim  just skipped town. ;) After enough damage, Blank will
    enter the fight, and help you out, and finish off the Plant Brain.
    
    
    When  the  fight  ends,  you'll  find that the entire forest is chasing
    after  you.  Along  the  way  out,  you'll be forced to fight off a few
    plants,  but  it's  not hard at all. Continue running forward until the
    game takes over, and a kick-ass FMV starts. After the cut-scenes end, a
    Moogle will enter, and start an automatic ATE:
    
    
    "Teach me, Mogster!" Lesson 1: This ATE shows two Moogles near a swamp, and
                                   the older brother (Mogster) will teach him
                                   several neat things including:

    Learn  all  that  you  can (or need to learn), then return to the game.
    Monty the Moogle will give you the Moogle's Flute. You'll exit out onto
    the Mist Continent world map. Run forward, and head north (according to
    your  map),  until  you reach the Ice Cavern (the blue wall of ice near
    the side of the cave). Enter it.

    Upon  entering  the  Cavern, check the first chest for a Tent, then run
    north,  and onto the next screen. Take the northwestern path first, and
    run  north to the odd wall at the top of the screen. Vivi will break it
    with  his magic, revealing a chest containing Elixir. Take it, then run
    down  to  the  chest  in  the southeast corner of this room and get the
    Potion  inside.  Now  examine the icicle near this chest, and Vivi will
    make  it  crash  down, allowing you to access the chest below. Take the
    Mage  Masher from inside, then run to the next screen to the northeast.
    Take the Phoenix Down from the chest here, then run to the west to find
    another  wall  that  Vivi can break through. Take the new path south to
    the  chest containing Leather Wrist, then go back north, and follow the
    path out of the northern doorway.
    
    
    On  the  next screen, take the left-hand path, and un-freeze the Moogle
    in  the  next  room.  He'll  scream  at  you,  and  even  call you some
    bastards!!! Geez. This will activate another automatic ATE:
    
    "Teach me, Mogster!" Lesson 2: You'll return to the swamp with Moggy and
                                   Mogster, the two brother Moogles. This time,
                                   here is what he'll teach you:

    Save your game with the Moogle if you wish, then return to the previous
    screen,  and  take  the right-hand path this time. Watch the cut-scene,
    then  walk towards the ringing-sound you just heard to meet Black Waltz
    No. 1.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BLACK WALTZ NO. 1 & SEALION
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 02     HP: 229    Weak against: Fire      Spoils: Hi-Potion, Phx. Down
    AP: 05        Steal: Remedy, Silk Shirt
    
    Level: 02     HP: 472    Weak against: Fire     Spoils: Hi-Potion, Phx. Down
    AP: 05        Steal: Ether, Mythril Dagger
    
    This  is  the  first semi-difficult boss battle so far in the game. You
    have  to  fight 2 enemies: Black Waltz No. 1, and Sealion, the enemy he
    summoned.  Waltz  will attack you and heal Sealion at the same time (he
    attacks  mainly  with  Blizzard  and Fire), so it's a very good idea to
    defeat  him  first,  that  way,  Sealion won't be healed. Sealion has a
    colored  ball  on  his  chest; it starts out as blue, but as you damage
    him, it changes to yellow, then red. He attacks with various methods of
    attack, like Fire, Thunder, Blizzard, Tsunami, and others. Keep up your
    HP,  because  it's just you against him. Eventually, Trance SHOULD take
    over Zidane, so the rest of the battle should be a sinch.
    
    
    After  the  battle,  you hear that Black Waltz No. 2 and 3 will reclaim
    the  Princess...hmmm...odd.  Anyways,  watch  the  cut-scenes, then run
    north,  and into the room where you fought Black Waltz No. 1, and climb
    the  snowy  ramp. Now head all the way to the top, through the doorway,
    and  back  outside  to  exit  the Mist. From the Ice Cavern, simply run
    straight ahead until you reach the town of Dali.

    As  you  enter the Village of Dali, Vivi wants to see the Windmill, but
    Zidane  insists  that they all rest up first. There will be a cut-scene
    that  comes in and the party will all get some rest. As you awaken, you
    will hear someone singing, and a few ATEs will start:
    
    Vivi, Confused: In this ATE, Vivi explores the Village by himself, only to
                    be confronted by a few snot-nosed kids, who upon seeing him,
                    run away, and avoid him. Vivi becomes saddened by this, since
                    whenever he attempts to walk towards them, they run away.
    
    
    Garnet Tries: See below...
    
    
    After  the  ATE ends, you'll regain control of Zidane. Search the chest
    in the room to find an Antidote. Now read the bookshelf to see:

    Check  the hidden chest near the Color Fortune machine to get a Potion,
    then  head  out  of the room, and into the lobby to activate the second
    ATE that you could not see earlier:
    
    Garnet Tries: This ATE shows Garnet the Princess (who now has a new name,
                  thanks to you, who changed it) in a small garden with some
                  pumpkins and a scarecrow. She's wondering about the state
                  of the Castle, and if it's okay, since there was quite a
                  ruckus there earlier. She starts to sob, and says that
                  her mother went too far (the Queen), and that she didn't
                  have to fire at the ship, even if it was to rescue her.
                  She also wonders how many people got hurt in the whole
                  ordeal, then she meets up with an Old Lady. The Old Lady
                  begins to kill the bugs on the crops, and as Garnet watches
                  her, an oglop pops out of the crops, and the Old Lady
                  notices that she likes oglops, when most girls hate them.
                  So, in an attempt to blend in, she acts like she hates them,
                  and screams.
    
    Check  out  the  table  in  the lobby to see what the menu says for the
    breakfast service is...
    
                           * Dali Inn's Breakfast Service! *
    
                           A delicious breakfast for 20 Gil!

                                - Fresh scrambled eggs
                           - Vegetables, fresh from the farm
    
                              * This is a sample menu. *
    
    Leave the Inn, and outside, you'll activate yet another ATE:
    
    Cat's Eye: This ATE shows a cat as he hops off the fireplace, and onto the
               desk of the receptionist inside of the Inn. The Innkeeper is
               stumped on what he should do. He says that he doesn't wanna
               give in to his brother, but everyone else is makin' money
               'cept him. He then finds out who that "traveling customer"
               was, and says that he won't have to give hin if he tells
               him about them, as the cat watches.
    
    
    Once the ATE ends, head into the shop across from the Inn, and do a bit
    of shopping with Shopkeeper Eve:
    
    Dagger................320 Gil
    Mage Masher...........500 Gil
    Broadsword............330 Gil

                      The third number and fourth number are
                      probably defense power. I still don't
                      know what the second character means.

    With  this  done, head back outside, and run north a bit, and check the
    wall  near  the  Shop to find 120 Gil on the ground. Keep running a bit
    north  to  notice  a  wheel  large  enough for an airship...hmmm. Cool.
    Anyways,  enter the house above the shop, and meet Mayor Kapu. He tells
    you  off right away, and that he's busy. Whatever. Feh. Anyways, leave,
    and  run  north  to  find  Vivi  staring at the windmill, and listen to
    Zidane  show  off  how much of a ladies' man he is in Lindblum. You two
    will  both  hear  the sound of chocobos, but Vivi has no idea what they
    are...then  someone  kidnaps  him!  Great, just great. Anywho, two more
    ATEs begin:
    
    Cat's Eye 2: This one shows the Innkeeper again, but this time, he's happy
                 about something. He laughs, and he says that he "sent someone
                 to pick it up right away". He also says that he'll have to
                 keep quiet until the guests leave, and pretend that he's
                 asleep.
    
    Garnet Tries Harder: This one shows Garnet in the Weapons Shop with Eve, and
                         she's there to speak with Eve, and learn how common
                         folk speak, but then some kid comes in and interrupts
                         her.
    
    Head  to  the Weapons Shop now that you know Garnet is there, and speak
    with  her.  Agree with her when you have choices to make in dialoge (or
    at least say the stuff that is the nicest). Return to the Inn, and talk
    to Garnet in the room to activate an automatic ATE:
    
    Queen Brahne's Steiner: This one shows Steiner inside of some place in the
                            village, helping out Dutiful Daughter Slai. He's
                            helping her so she'll introduce him to some of
                            the adults in the village, but she tells him that
                            the adults don't come there during the day. He then
                            asks her what the main port of transportation is
                            in the village, because there is someone he must
                            escort to the castle. She tells Steiner to go to
                            the observatory at the top of a mountain along the
                            outskirts of village, and that an old man named
                            Morrid lives there. He apparently takes care of
                            the cargo ship.
    
    Head  to  the Pub in the north part of town, and talk Slai. Next, check
    out the menu for future reference (it's to the left of her):

    Exit  the  Pub,  and return to the left where you first found Vivi, and
    you'll  hear a sound of a Chocobo. You'll then see that Vivi is trapped
    underground,  and  that  "they told him to stay there". You must find a
    way  to  get  to  him. Head into the windmill to the left of where Vivi
    lies,  and  check the back of the room for Aries. Check the door to see
    that you need Mayor's Key to open it. Examine the steel hole that is in
    the southern part of the room, and open it. Go down the ladder.
    
    
    Once  down  there, hop off the ladder, take the tiny elevator, and open
    the  chest  to find 156 Gil. Now run north to find a Chocobo, Vivi, and
    his  captors. Enter the small shed near the chocobo to find some Potion
    inside  of  the  chest,  then open the chest outside of it for some Eye
    Drops. Go through the next door, and speak to the Moogle in the barrel,
    and  save  your  game.  Hop up the crates in the back of this room, and
    open  the  first chest for some Ether. Hop back down, and check out the
    rope  near  the  next door, and Kick It to lower another chest. Open it
    for some Potion, then head through the next door.
    
    
    In  here, climb up the small steps, and make your way across the crates
    to  a  chest  containing an Iron Helm. Check out the chest on the floor
    for a Leather Wrist, then head through the northern door. You'll find a
    large  machine, and Vivi inside of a large box. Before checking out the
    large machine, open the chest near it for 95 Gil. Now use the path next
    to  the  machine  making eggs, enter the next room, then enter the room
    after  that  to  learn  something  shocking! Watch the cut-scenes, then
    you'll take over as Steiner.
    
    
    Run down the mountain and follow Morrid down the mountain, and into his
    hut.  After  finding out when the Cargo ship gets there, run out of the
    house,  and  onto  the field where the Cargo ship is. Once you are near
    the large barrel, poke it with your sword to draw out Zidane, Vivi, and
    Garnet.  They  are about to board the ship, but as they do, Black Waltz
    No. 2 appears.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BLACK WALTZ NO. 2
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 06     HP: 1028    Weak against: Fire    Spoils: Ether, Zagnohl Card
    AP: 05        Steal: Steepled Hat, Leather Plate
    
    This  guy's  mission is to take the Princess back to the castle, and he
    won't  stop  at  anything  to  accomplish  it, either. He is tougher to
    defeat  than Black Waltz No. 1 was, but this time, he's alone. The fact
    that  most  of  his  attacks  attack  the entire party really hurts you
    overall.  You'll  need  to  use  a  few Phoenix Downs, as well as a few
    potions on your party members. He casts things like Teleport, Fire, and
    Thunder,  so  watch  out.  Revive anyone that becomes KO'd, because you
    need all of the power you can get.
    
    
    Now  at  this  time, you can either choose to Depart, or to rest at the
    Inn.  Choose  to  rest,  that  way, you can further explore the Village
    before  you head off. Explore what you want to in the Village, and when
    you  are ready, go back to the ship, and depart. Once on the ship, head
    up  the  ladder,  and  talk  to  Steiner. Afterwards, enter the western
    cabin,  and you'll turn the ship around, towards Lindblum. In the midst
    of  the confusion, Black Waltz No. 3 appears, and kills off many of the
    Mage  dolls. Enjoy the awesome FMV that shows. When you are ready, head
    out onto the deck to fight Black Waltz No. 3.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BLACK WALTZ NO. 3
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 07     HP: 1028    Weak against: Thunder     Spoils: None
    AP: 05        Steal: Linen Cuirass, Steepled Hat, Silver Gloves
    
    For some strange reason, Black Waltz No. 3 is somewhat easier to defeat
    than  his  previous  counterpart  was. I'm not sure why, but he doesn't
    attack  you very often, and even when he does attack, it's not all that
    potent. Anywho, by this time, Vivi should have reached Trance-state, so
    be  sure  to  cast  Fire x 2 on Waltz, and use Steiner's Fire Sword and
    Blizzard  Sword.  You  shouldn't  have  to  use any Potions, Ethers, or
    Phoenix  Downs  in  this fight if you rested up back in the Village Inn
    earlier.  Repeat  the  process of casting spells on him to cause him to
    run off.
    
    
    After  he  runs off, a series of in-game cut-scenes begin, as well as a
    few  FMVs  that  pretty  much  blew  me  away,  and  made  me cheer for
    Vivi...er...well, you'll know what I mean when you see it for yourself.
    ;)

    • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • -
    
    When you first enter the Castle, all of your party members are marveled
    at  it's sheer size! A few soldiers enter, and give you the run-around,
    but  when  the Princess shows them tha Falcon Claw emblem, they call in
    Minister  Artania,  who is the Princess's uncle! Follow him through the
    first  room,  past  the  2  guards,  and onto the lift. He explains the
    levels  of Lindblum to you, and where you can go, and where you cannot.
    Apparently  you are going off to meet Regent Cid, who is very wise, and
    always  thinks  ahead.  When  you  meet him, you'll find that he's been
    turned into an oglop, and his wife was abducted.
    
    
    Soon after, you'll enter a pub as Zidane, and meet up with Freya, a new
    party member (since you are naming her...). Eventually, after many cut-
    scenes, an ATE will begin:
    
    Teach me, Mogster! (My first synthesis lesson): Back we go to the swamp
                                                    with Mogster, and this time,
                                                    the new thing he'll teach
                                                    you about is the Synthesis
                                                    Shops. You can also read up
                                                    on the previous lessons as
                                                    well.
    
    Once  that  ends, save your game with the Moogle, then head downstairs,
    and into the lobby. Read the sign on the bird statue near the stairs:
    
                                 = Bobo Bird Statue =
    
                            Bobo Birds are symbols of good
                         fortune, according to an Olgan myth.
    
                            The founder of this inn bought
                          the statue, and it has been passed
                                 down for generations.
    
    Leave the Inn, and an ATE will begin:
    
    Small-Town Knight in a Big City: In this ATE, it shows Steiner in the middle
                                     of Lindblum, saying how large it is, and that
                                     he's completely lost. He speaks to a Female
                                     Red Mage, and asks how to return back to the
                                     castle, and she just laughs at him. She also
                                     tells him how he should get rid of his armor,
                                     because of how disgusting it is. He then
                                     speaks to an old lady, and she shows him
                                     some pickles, he falls over, yells, but
                                     then states that they are rather good.
    
    After the ATE, run across the street, and attempt to enter the shop, and another
    ATE will begin:
    
    Vivi's Shopping: It shows Vivi inside of a shop, stating how "good a nut
                     smells". Wow. Ahem, anyways, he begins to look around
                     the shop, saying all kinds of stuff about the food, and
                     reads this sign:
    
                                    = Alice's Item Shop =
    
                             Festival of the Hunt Sale ends today!
    
                     When Vivi tries to check out, Alice asks him if he is friends
                     with the Moogles, since he's buying a Kupo Nut, which are
                     the Moogles' favorite food. She lets him have it for free,
                     and Viv receives the Kupo Nut. She tells him that the up-
                     coming festival has animals in it, and Vivi gets excited
                     and runs off. After he leaves, Alice says something
                     about "what's so fun about fighting savage beasts...?"
    
    After  the ATE, Zidane will be in the Aircab area, so read the schedule
    on the wall:
    
                            = Provisional Air Cab Scedule =
    
                             For the next 3 days, air cabs
                             will operate on the Festival
                                 of the Hunt schedule.
    
                                        Air Cab Management
    
    
    Head  back  out onto the street, and run north, and into the area where
    the  lady sells Gysha Pickles. Enter the house to the north of her, and
    speak to the Card Game Freak, and read the note on the bookshelf:
    
                               = Card Collector No. 7 =
    
                         Feature Article: Regarding Rare Cards
    
                               Rare cards are priceless!
                               The cards you're carrying
                              could become rare cards...
    
                                          Fabool Publications
    
    There  are also two chests in here: One with a Hi-Potion, and the other
    contain-  ing  an  Echo  Screen.  Now  leave  the  house,  and take the
    northeastern  path,  and to the part of town with a fountain. Enter the
    Weapons Shop to the northeast of the fountain:
    
    
    Dagger................320 Gil
    Mage Masher...........500 Gil
    Mythril Dagger........950 Gil
    Iron Sword............660 Gil
    Javelin...............880 Gil
    Rod...................260 Gil
    Fork.................1100 Gil
    Mage Staff............320 Gil
    Wrist.................130 Gil
    Leather Wrist.........200 Gil
    Glass Armlet..........250 Gil
    Bronze Gloves.........480 Gil
    Silver Gloves.........720 Gil
    Steepled Hat..........260 Gil
    Headgear..............330 Gil
    Iron Helm.............450 Gil
    Linen Cuirass.........800 Gil
    
    
    Now leave, and enter the Medicine Shop to the left of the Weapons Shop:
    
    Potion................050 Gil
    Phoenix Down..........150 Gil
    Echo Screen...........050 Gil
    Soft..................100 Gil
    Antidote..............050 Gil
    Eye Drops.............050 Gil
    Tent..................800 Gil
    
    
    Head to the left of the Medicine Shop, and enter the Synthesist shop:
    
    Butterfly Sword (Requires Dagger, Mage Masher)........300 Gil
    The Ogre (Requires Mage Masher).......................700 Gil
    Cotton Robe (Requires Wrist, Steepled Hat)...........1000 Gil
    Desert Boots (Requires Leather Hat, Leather Shirt.....300 Gil
    Yellow Scarf (Requires Feather Hat, Steepled Hat).....400 Gil
    Glass Buckle (Requires Glass Armlet, Leather Wrist)...500 Gil
    
    
    I suggest forging either a Butterfly Sword and/or The Ogre when you are
    here.  Return  to  the  part of town where the Pickle lady is, and this
    time,  take  the  northwestern  path  instead. Run north, and enter the
    churh.  Speak  with  everyone  here,  then  climb  the ladder to find a
    Leather  Plate  on  the catwalk above. Leave the church, and veer right
    near  the  trees  to  find a hidden Tent. Return to the Air Cab Station
    (it's  across  from  the  Inn),  and  ride  the  Air  Cab  to  [Theater
    Disctrict].  Exit  the air cab area in the Theater District to activate
    an ATE:
    
    Steam Engine: This one shows Steiner lost once again, looking for the
                  Princess. He whines about the size of the City, then asks
                  someone where he is, and the old man tells him that he
                  is on the bridge that links the castle and the docks.
                  He points out the Hilde Garde 2, which is an airship that
                  can run without Mist, since it has a steam engine.
    
    Exit  the  air  cab station after the ATE, and run south, and check out
    the  bushes to find 127 Gil. Enter the house near the Gil, and open the
    chest  here  to find some Ore. Leave the house, and run southwest, down
    the  ramp.  Head  into  the  clocktower to your left, and watch a small
    cut-scene, and an ATE:
    
    What can I do?: This one shows Garnet in a bedroom, hearing the bell sound.
                    As she tries to leave to go look around, the Elite Guard
                    won't allow her to do so. Because of the Festival of the
                    Hunt, the town is chaotic, making securtiy rather difficult.
                    He tells her it's for her safety...
    
    Afterwards, Bunce and Lucella enter the scene, and talk to Zidane. They
    tell  you to go see the Princess at the Castle. Before leaving, open up
    the  various  chests in here to get: 68 Gil, 282 Gil, and 97 Gil! Climb
    the  ladder,  and  take the Mini-Burmecia from the bed. Leave the clock
    area, and an ATE will start:
    
    Baku and His Crew: This ATE shows Baku and the others as they found a way
                       out of the Evil Forest before it got petrified. They
                       did this because Blank showed them a river before he
                       gave the map to Zidane. Marcus wants to save his brother,
                       Blank from the Evil Forest, but Baku thinks it's a
                       better idea to let the Evil Forest stay petrified. They
                       begin to find a way to get the forest un-petrified.
    
    Run  down  the  stairs, and talk to the Fan Club Chairmen to watch some
    short cut-scene, then read the info on the wall about this theater:
    
    
                             = Fuegert Memorial Theater =
    
                        We proudly present 'Moogle Wannabe 2':
                            performed by Zalwicks Company,
                            the company that gave a stellar
                        rendition of 'I Wish I Were a Chocobo.'
    
                              Lowell Bridges plays Ubobo
    
    
    A Giant Moogle will run off (Moogle Man), so follow him back to the Air
    Cab  Station,  but  instead of going there, enter the house across from
    the Station to find Lowell. He'll give you an Autograph if you speak to
    him. Go to the station, and fly to the [Industrial District].
    
    
    Head  up  the stairs in the back of the area when you exit the station,
    and enter the Doom Pub. Read the notice in the back of the pub:
    
    
                           = Airship Engineer Daily Report =
    
                         Hilde Garde 2 construction postponed!
    
                          The prototype steam engine on board
                           the Hilde Garde 2 is inoperative.
                         The engine problem stems from errors
                           during the manufacturing period.
    
    
    Exit  the  pub, and run north to the house where Lindruff is building a
    prototype  steam engine. Run up the stairs, and check the two chests to
    find  a  Mimic Card, and a Steepled Hat. Okay, nothing else to do here,
    so return to the Air Cab station, and fly to the [Lindblum Castle].
    
    
    Exit  the  station,  climb  the  red stairs, then go south down the red
    carpet.  In the room with the fountain, enter the northeastern doorway,
    and  enter  the  bedroom  with  Steiner, where you'll find out that the
    Princess  is  missing.  After he runs off, take this time to search the
    chests  in the room for the following items: Glass Armlet, Ether, and a
    Moogle save point.
    
    
    Return  to  the  room with the fountain, and you'll hear Garnet singing
    from  upstairs.  You must find a way to disguise yourself as a guard to
    get to the lift, and to find her. Go back to the room that leads to the
    Princess'  room  (where you met Steiner), and head down the stairs, and
    speak  to  the sleeping guard to wake him up. Zidane will lure him into
    her  room,  and  will beat him up, and take his disguise. Return to the
    fountian  room,  and run past the guard who is near the lift. He'll let
    you pass, so enter the lift.
    
    
    At  the  top  of the lift, go left, and up the stairs to enter the gear
    room.  Talk  to  the  Worker  to  find  out that the Princess just went
    upstairs,  so  head  up  there. Continue up the next few sets of stairs
    until a FMV kicks in, and you find her. Watch the series of cut-scenes,
    until the Festival of the Hunt starts:
    
    
                               = Festival of the Hunt =
    
                        Hunters, on your mark! Ferocious beasts
                             swarm about the castle town!
    
                                 The bigger the catch,
                                 the higer the score!
    
    
    			   = Festival of the Hunt =
    
                             The time limit is 12 minutes.
                        Use air cabs to go to other districts.
                              Once you lose in a battle,
                             you will be forced to retire.
    
                       The winner will be crowned Master Hunter
                           and receive the hunter's reward.
                              Who will come out on top!?
    
    
    The point of the Festival of the Hunt is to kill as many of the roaming
    monsters  that  you  can in under 12 minutes. Here are some approximate
    point values:
    
    TRICK SPARROW: 4-10 Points
    FANG: 15-23 Points
    SQUIRREL: 10-20 Points
    
    If  you want to guarentee yourself a victory, simply find as many Fangs
    as  you can, be sure to have The Ogre weapon equipped, then head to the
    Business  Disctrict,  then  take the northeast path to find the largest
    monster:
    
    ZAGNHOL (Worth over 200 Points)- You'll fight this monster alongside with
                                     Freya. Simply attack it until it dies. It
                                     has a few attacks that can do over 100 HP
                                     of damage, but your Ogre weapon, and physical
                                     attack can do well over 500 HP of damage to
                                     him. If you kill him, you get all of the
                                     points, and Freya gets none. :P
    
    By  the  way,  my highest score so far has been: 215 Hunting Points. If
    you  win as Zidane, you'll receive the Master Hunter, and 5000 Gil as a
    reward.  As  you  receive  your reward, a Burmecian Soldier enters, and
    tells  of  something  terrible happening to the city of Burmecia. After
    everything  ends,  and  you  take  control of Zidane, exit the room, go
    downstairs,  and take the lift to [Base Level], then take the left-hand
    car  to  [Dragon's  Gate]. Speak with the Moogle, and you'll find a new
    letter.  Save  your  game, then speak with the shop-man near the Moogle
    before you go:
    
    Potion................050 Gil
    Phoenix Down..........150 Gil
    Echo Screen...........050 Gil
    Soft..................100 Gil
    Antidote..............050 Gil
    Eye Drops.............050 Gil
    Tent..................800 Gil
    
    He  also  has a letter that you can read. Head out the Dragon Gate, and
    onto  the  World  Map.  Head  north,  and you will eventually find Qu's
    Marsh. Enter it.
    
    
    • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • -

    • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • -
    
    Once  here,  run  north,  and  you'll  find the two Moogles whom you've
    learned  much  about the game from a few ATEs earlier. Speak to them to
    learn  where  the  Grotto is (they say it's further north), and you can
    also  re-learn  the  stuff they taught you earlier. After speaking with
    them, continue north, through the tall grass, and into the area where a
    Qu  is  trying  to catch a frog. Catch a frog yourself by standing near
    one,  then  pressing "X" to catch it. Now speak with Qu, and name "it".
    Watch the cut-scene, and agree to let him join you and your party.
    
    
    Watch  the  rest  of  the cut-scenes to advance the story, then you can
    play  a small, frog-catching mini-game here. Simply catch as many frogs
    as you can, and try to get the Gold Frog too. Soon, someone will enter,
    and give you some Ore for catching 2 Frogs. If you catch 5 Frogs, Quale
    will enter and give you some Ether. The basic rundown in as follows:
    
    2 Frogs: Ore
    5 Frogs: Ether
    9 Frogs: Silk Robe
    
    When you're all done, exit the Marsh, and back onto the World Map. Head
    north  some  more, and you'll find Gizamaluke's Grotto to your left, in
    the side of a mountain.

    • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • -
    
    Enter  the  Grotto,  and  turn right and speak with the downed soldier.
    He'll  give  you  the  Gizamaluke  Bell.  Take it, then go and take the
    right-hand  path,  and  Ring the Bell on the door to open it. Enter the
    door.  When  you  enter,  you'll  be  forced to fight against two black
    mages,  but  the  fight  is  fairly easy. Each time you fight a pair of
    Black  Mages,  you'll get a Gizamaluke's Bell, which is used to open up
    the doors with bells on them. Now enter the large, northern door with a
    Bell,  and  help  the  Moogle by giving her the Kupo Nut. When they run
    off, open the chest to get a Gizamaluke Bell.
    
    
    If  you  enter  the door in this room, you'll find the Moogles, and you
    can  save  if you want to here. If you tell one of the Moogles that you
    like  Kupo  Nuts,  then when you try to leave, she'll give you the Holy
    Bell!  Leave  the  save room, and take the stairway to the southeast of
    where  you  saved  the Moogles, and follow the path to the north. Along
    the  way, take the Magus Hat from underneath the stairs. Now go back to
    the  opened chest, and use the bell to open the door to the left of the
    chest,  and  be  sure  your  party is healed up, and you have plenty of
    potions, elixers, and Phoenix Downs upon entering this room.

    GIZAMALUKE
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 16     HP: 3175    Weak against: Thunder     Spoils: Tent(s)
    AP: 05        Steal: Elixer, Ice Staff, Magus Hat
    
    This  boss is probably the toughest boss in the game so far, because he
    has  at  least  over  2000  HP  of  health, and his attacks can do some
    serious  damage.  He  uses magical attacks like Fire, as well as Water,
    which can hurt your party badly. If you have the Ogre as Zidane, use it
    to  cast  Soul Blade, and blind him. You should also use Vivi's Thunder
    attacks  against  him,  and  Freya's Jumping Spear attack too. You WILL
    need  to  use plenty of Potions, and Phoenix Downs in this fight, so be
    ready for it.
    
    
    After  the  fight ends, you take over as Steiner in Grand Citadel South
    Gate.

    Run  up  the stairs as Steiner, and talk to the guards. Enter the area,
    and  talk  to the woman to your right, and choose to Console her to get
    her  out  of your way. Now speak to the man to the south of that woman,
    and  get him to move. When the coast is clear, attempt to head into the
    alleyway, but as you do, the short guard gives you the Gate Pass. Enter
    the  alley,  let  her change, then enter the next part of the city, and
    talk to the old lady ahead of you to shop:
    
    Potion................050 Gil
    Phoenix Down..........150 Gil
    Echo Screen...........050 Gil
    Soft..................100 Gil
    Antidote..............050 Gil
    Eye Drops.............050 Gil
    Tent..................800 Gil
    
    
    Open  up  the chest to the west of the small shop to get a Potion, then
    save  your  game  with  the  Moogle  near  it. Now head up the northern
    stairs,  and  show  the  man your Gate Pass, and depart onto the train.
    Choose  a  seat  on the train to depart. Watch the cut-scenes, and when
    you take over as Zidane on the World Map, run north to enter Bermecia.

    Run forward to the north, and onto the next screen. Fight the two Black
    Mages  that  are  sent upon you, then enter the door to your left. Open
    the  two  chests to find Soft and a Potion. Now leave the room, and run
    east,  and  into  the  door there. In here, check the chest in the rear
    (near  the  stairs)  to find a Soft, then run up the stairs. Now IGNORE
    the  chest by the doorway, because it's a fake chest, and it'll start a
    fight  if you touch it. Enter the doorway at the top of the stairs, and
    attempt  to  run  to  the next chest. The floor will fall down, so exit
    back  outside, enter the room where you found the two chests, and climb
    the  stairs.  Now  run across the floor that just fell down, and IGNORE
    the chest near the doorway, and enter it.
    
    
    Check  around  the  room,  and  exit  out onto the balcony. Talk to the
    Bermecian  Soldier  in  the  bedroom, then open the hidden chest in the
    back of the room to get some Ether. Now search under the bed to get the
    Protection  Bell, then leave the room, go back outside, east and up the
    stairs,  back  inside,  up  the  stairs  again, and through the western
    doorway  to get back outside again. Ring the bell in front of this door
    to shatter it, then enter it.
    
    
    Run  up  the  large  stairs,  and enter the northern doorway. Watch the
    cut-scene,  then  climb the right-hand stairs, and enter the doorway to
    your  left.  Search  the two chests for a Tent and a Phoenix Down, then
    run  around  the  path, to the other side, and enter the northern door.
    Now  enter  the  lefthand  brown  door, and Freya will take the Mythril
    Spear from the statue. Exit, and enter the right-hand door. Talk to the
    Moogle to use a Tent and to save your game, or Shop if you wish:
    
    Needle Fork.............3100 Gil
    Glass Armlet.............250 Gil
    Mythril Gloves...........980 Gil
    Steepled Hat.............260 Gil
    Headgear.................330 Gil
    Magus Hat................400 Gil
    Barbut...................600 Gil
    Bronze Vest..............670 Gil

    Soft.....................100 Gil
    Antidote.................050 Gil
    Eye Drops................050 Gil
    Tent.....................800 Gil
    
    Run forward, and open the chest to find a Lightning Staff. You can also
    buy  these  items  from the next Moogle that comes in: Soft, Hi-Potion,
    and  Ether,  all for the super-low price of 333 Gil. Exit the room, and
    head  north,  up  the  stairs.  On  the  next  screen, choose all three
    options,  but do the "Leave Her alone" one last. Watch the cinemas, end
    eventually, you'll reach a boss fight.

    BEATRIX
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 14   HP: 3630    Weak against: None     Spoils: None
    AP: N/A     Steal: Chain Plate, Phx. Down, Mythril Sword
    
      This fight starts off slow and easy, but after a few turns of battle,
    it  completely  changes pace, since Beatrix begins to pummel your party
    with  physical  and magic attacks that can cause over 500 HP of damage,
    and  that's  not  the maximum amount she can dish out. Be sure you have
    Vivi  equipped  with  the Lightning Staff, and have Freya equipped with
    the  Mythril  Spear you just found earlier, and be sure that Zidane has
    The  Ogre  sword, or something very strong. Use plenty of magic against
    her,  like  Blizzara,  Spear,  Reis's  Wind,  and  so on. Use plenty of
    healing  items,  but don't worry, you can't die in this fight. Instead,
    Beatrix  will give mercy to your party and leave your last members with
    1 HP of health left before ending the fight.
    
    
    Watch the cinemas and the FMV, then save your game, and switch discs.

    When  Disc  02  begins,  you'll  start off by watching two guards (Tall
    Guard  and  Short  Guard)  talk  about  Burmecia  and some "pointy hat"
    fellows.

    When  you  take over as Dagger, head up the first set of stairs nearest
    to  you, and enter the rest area. Speak with everyone here for details,
    then shop with the ShopKeeper here:
    
    Air Racket...........400 Gil
    Mythril Rod..........560 Gil
    Glass Armlet.........250 Gil
    Silver Gloves........720 Gil
    Mythril Gloves.......980 Gil

    Check  out  the  chest  near  the  Moogle (you can save here too if you
    wish),  and take the Phoenix Down. Talk to the main near the chest, and
    he'll  tell  you the train will be departing soon, but then you'll hear
    the  Lindblum car leave, and hear a familiar voice. Head outside to see
    Cinna  and  Marcus.  Now  re-enter the rest area, and speak with Cinna,
    Marcus, then to Steiner last. Now go outside, and enter the car that is
    heading for Alexandria.

    BLACK WALTZ NO. 3 (His Return)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 09     HP: 1292    Weak against: None     Spoils: None
    AP: 05        Steal: Steepled Hats, Lightning Staff
    
    This  final form of Black Waltz No. 3 is much easier to defeat than his
    first  form,  since  this  one  has  basically gone insane, and is much
    weaker  than  earlier.  He  uses  attacks  like Thunder, Blizzara, Hit,
    Freeze  and  whatnot,  but  they're not very potent. Use Marcus's steal
    option to steal a Phoenix Down, and a Lightning Staff if possible, then
    attack  with  his  physical attacks. Use Dagger to Cure your party, and
    use mainly physical attacks against him.
    
    
    After  the fight, you'll end up at South Gate/Alexandrian Station. Head
    past  the  train and do some shopping with Part-Time Worker Mary before
    heading  to  Treno.  Exit  off the screen, and to the fork in the road.
    Take  the right-hand path and head to Treno. Cross the bridge, then run
    south  to  find  a chest containing 1610 Gil inside. Continue eastward,
    onto  the  next  screen,  show the guards your Gate Pass, then exit out
    onto  the  World Map. Now just head forward, then to your right to find
    the  city of Treno, but if you wish to level up quickly, then head over
    to   the  forested  area,  and  wander  around.  There  are  plenty  of
    Mandragora's  that  come  in  packs of 2-3 each battle, and you can get
    tons  of EXP and Gil from each fight, which allows you to level up your
    party pretty fast.

    ATEs:
    
    Treno Tradition
    Ambition
    
    Watch  an  ATE,  then head up the northeastern stairs. Once on the next
    screen,  you will find an Inn to your left. Use it if you need to, then
    head  north, and to the next screen. Run forward to find a Moogle. Head
    right and into the large wooden doors to go shoppin':
    
    Dagger.............320 Gil

    Shop  a  bit,  then ask the lady about the monster below you. Exit, and
    continue north a bit, and up the stairs to find the Auction site. Enter
    the  large  door.  You'll  find  Dagger here, then take over control as
    Dagger.  You  can return to the auction and bid on items if you'd like,
    then  return back outside, run past the moogle, and head south. Once on
    the next screen, go west, and then south, and onto the next screen. Now
    run  to  the  west to find a chest with a Mythril Dagger. Now return to
    the  previous  screen, and then head north a bit, then go left into the
    mansion to find a Synth Shop:
    
    
     Butterfly Sword (Requires Dagger, Mage Masher)........300 Gil
     The Ogre (Requires 2 Mage Mashers)....................700 Gil
     Cotton Robe (Requires Wrist, Steepled Hat)...........1000 Gil
     Desert Boots (Requires Leather Hat, Leather Shirt.....300 Gil
     Yellow Scarf (Requires Feather Hat, Steepled Hat).....400 Gil
     Glass Buckle (Requires Glass Armlet, Leather Wrist)...500 Gil

     Cachusha (Requires Magus Hat, Rubber Helm)...........1000 Gil
     Coral Ring (Requires Lightning Staff, Rod)...........1200 Gil
     Gold Choker (Requires Linen Cuirass, Soft)...........1300 Gil
    
    Synth a few things, most notably the last 3 add-ons. Leave the mansion,
    and  continue  north,  to the next screen, then enter the doors to meet
    the  queen.  Give her Aeires if you have it to get 1000 Gil. Now return
    all the way back to where the Inn is located, then head east of it, and
    down  the ladder. Open the chest here to get a Yeti Card, then speak to
    the Shopkeeper:
    
    Potion................050 Gil
    Phoenix Down..........150 Gil
    Echo Screen...........050 Gil
    Soft..................100 Gil
    Antidote..............050 Gil
    Eye Drops.............050 Gil
    Tent..................800 Gil
    
    Stock  up  on  plenty  of  medicine,  then open the next chest to get a
    measly  1  Gil.  Head  north  of the shop, and explore behind it to get
    Taurus.  Now return to the Inn, and you'll find Marcus. Say that you're
    ready to go with Marcus, then head down to the dock to meet Baku. Watch
    the  cut-scenes,  then meet Doctor Tot, who will unlock the large tower
    near the Treno Entrance.
    
    
    Go  to  the entrance, and go left from there, and head up the tower. At
    the top, you'll get the SuperSoft from the Doctor. Talk to him again to
    activate  a  cut-scene. Watch it, then follow the doctor up the ladder,
    then into the hole.

    chest  to your right to get a Chain Plate. Now head to the west of this
    chest,  and  go  to the end of the hallway to find a chest containing a
    Phoenix  Down,  and  the  lever  you're supposed to pull. Pull it, then
    return  to the Doctor, and head down the southeast path now. Head north
    on  the next screen, and the Doctor will meet with you, and tell you to
    pull  the nearby lever. Do it, and a gargan will come around, pulling a
    trolley.  Now  you must halt it. Go back a screen, run past the Doctor,
    down  the  small  steps, and pull the lever here. The gargan will stop,
    and your party will step aboard the trolley.

    Level: 13     HP: 2296    Weak against: None     Spoils: None
    AP: 00        Steal: Bone Wrist, Mythril Fork
    
    This  guy  is the one blocking your path in the trolley, so you'll have
    to  deal with him. Start off by having Dagger cast Protect on everyone,
    then  have  Steiner  and  Marcus attack most of the time. If you try to
    steal,  do  it  fast,  because  after  enough damage, he'll escape (the
    Ralvurahva). If you do happen to steal anything, it'll be a Bone Wrist,
    but  remember  that  it's  hard  to steal anything from this guy. If he
    casts  Devil's  Kiss  on  anyone, heal them fast, because their HP will
    drop gradually. After enough damage, he'll run off.
    
    
    After  the  cut-scenes,  you'll  take  over  control with Zidane, Vivi,
    Freya, and Quina. Your goal is to head off to Clerya, west of Burmecia.
    Head west, and into that large, swirling sandstorm.

    Once  you  are inside of the tree, run northeast, and pull the lever at
    the  top  of  the  steps to open the nearby door, then enter it. In the
    next  room,  open  up the chest to the northeast to get a Phoenix Down.
    Run north, and through the next doorway. Out here, head east, and avoid
    the  sandtraps, and check out the hidden chest to the south to get some
    Magician's Shoes. Take them from the chest before leaving, then out the
    next  doorway.  Run north up the side of the tree, through the doorway,
    and  back  inside of the tree. Open the chest to get an Ether, then run
    south  to  the hole in the tree. Put your hand inside to raise the sand
    level  of  the  tree. Now exit this room, and climb the vines and enter
    the hole on the side of the tree.
    
    
    Run  through  this  room,  and  enter the doorway to the west. Open the
    chest  in the next area for the Needle Fork. Now head up the ramps, and
    you  can  find  a  Moogle  here,  so  save  your game and use a Tent if
    necessary.  Check  out  the chest across from the Moogle to get a Tent,
    then continue up the sandy ramps and onto the next screen. Now take the
    left-hand stairs to find a chest with a Flame Staff inside, so take it,
    then  head  up the other set of stairs. Cross the bridge, and enter the
    next area.
    
    
    Run  to  the center of the room to find a hidden chest with some Desert
    Boots  inside. Now head out the tunnel behind this chest, and out here,
    open  the  chest  to  get some Mythril Gloves. Head north, and pull the
    lever  at  the  top.  Now  return  to the cave where you got the Desert
    Boots,  and  head to the left of the center cave (where you just were),
    to find a hidden chest containing a Mythril Vest! Head through the cave
    to the far left of you.
    
    
    Open  the  first  chest  to  your  right to get a Potion, then take the
    right-hand  path that leads to a chest with an Elixer inside. Go back a
    screen,  and take the left-hand path instead. Run around the sandtraps,
    and  open the first chest to get a Hi-Potion, and open the second chest
    to  get  900 Gil! If you happen to fall into one of the sandtraps, mash
    the  X  button  to get out. Take the western path, and follow it to the
    ladder.  But  before  climbing  up it, check the chest behind it to get
    some  Gysahl Greens. Now climb up the ladder, and follow the short path
    to...

                                   CLEYRA SETTLEMENT
    • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • -
    
    Right  when  you enter the Settlement, Freya runs off to meet the King.
    So,  after  she leaves, the Forest Oracle Kildea offers to give you the
    tour  of  the settlement, so agree to go. He'll show you stuff like the
    market,  the  waterwheel, the observatory, and the cathedral. After the
    tour  concludes,  you  take  over  as  Zidane. Head up the first set of
    stairs,  and  turn  right  to find a hidden area with a Phoenix Pinion.
    Take  it,  then  head  up  the  next set of stairs, and to the right to
    activate an ATE (No Yummy-Yummies!).
    
    
    When the ATE ends, head to the right, and search the ground to get some
    Ore.  Take  it,  then  go  left,  and  across  the  small bridge to the
    southwest, and an ATE will begin (Don't Hate Me). Watch it, then search
    the  ground  near  the  steps to get some Thunder Gloves. Return to the
    market area of town, and where the "Don't Hate Me" ATE just took place,
    and speak with Dan to buy some weapons:
    
    Partisan...................1600 Gil
    Multina Racket..............750 Gil
    Mythril Rod.................560 Gil
    Flame Staff................1100 Gil
    Ice Staff...................980 Gil
    Needle Fork................3100 Gil
    Bone Wrist..................330 Gil
    Mythril Armlet..............500 Gil
    Mythril Gloves..............980 Gil
    Thunder Gloves.............1200 Gil
    Magus Hat...................400 Gil
    Bandana.....................500 Gil
    Mage's Hat..................600 Gil
    Mythril Helm...............1000 Gil
    Chain Plate.................810 Gil
    Mythril Vest...............1180 Gil
    Chain Mail.................1200 Gil
    Mythril Armor..............1830 Gil
    
    
    Be sure to stock up on any of the more powerful weapons you have yet to
    get  (Ice Staff, Fire Staff, Needle Fork), as well as lots of Defensive
    armor  (Bandana, Chain Plate, Chain Mail, Mythril anything...), because
    you'll  need it. Enter the Inn right above Dan, and check the ground to
    the right of the Innkeeper to get 1250 Gil. Now check the corner to the
    left  of  the  Innkeeper  to  get an Echo Screen. Climb the stairs, and
    check the dresser near the bed to get some Ether. Now you can also find
    a  Moogle  here, near the window. Check for mail, and you should have a
    letter  for  Zidane.  Read it, then save your game. Also rest up if you
    need to.
    
    
    Leave  the  Inn,  and  run up the right-hand stairs, and along the way,
    you'll  find  a  Remedy on the ground. Continue up the steps, and a few
    ATEs   will   pop  up  ("I-I  Haven't  Hurt  Anyone",  and  "There's  a
    Mushroom!").  Head  to  the observatory, and speak with the girls, then
    head  east  across  the  bridge.  On  the  next screen, you will find a
    Phoenix  Pinion  on  the  ground near some mushrooms, and a few people,
    like Star Maiden Nina:
    
    Potion................050 Gil
    Phoenix Down..........150 Gil
    Echo Screen...........050 Gil
    Soft..................100 Gil
    Antidote..............050 Gil
    Eye Drops.............050 Gil
    Annoyntment...........150 Gil
    Tent..................800 Gil
    
    
    Head  north, to the area outside of the cathedral, and search the grass
    to  the  south to find some Gysahl Greens, and search the area in front
    of  the cathdedral to find an Echo Screen. Enter the cathedral, and get
    the  message  from  Freya,  saying  for you to wait for her at the Inn.
    Return  back  to the Inn. As you get near the Inn, someone reports that
    the  Antlion  has mauled a kid. Follow Dan to the entrance of the town,
    then head east to find the Antlion attacking Puck.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ANTLION
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 16     HP: 2938    Weak against: Wind     Spoils: Ether, Annoytment
    AP: 05        Steal: Gold Helm, Annoyntment, Mythril Vest
    
    Start  off  the fight by having Vivi cast Blizzara as soon as possible,
    then  have  him cast it for the entire fight. Use Zidane to steal items
    (you can get stuff like Annoyntment, a Gold Helm, and other stuff too),
    and  use Freya's ability, Reis's Wind to heal the party as you go. This
    fight  is  a cinch if you have Vivi cast Blizzara, because it deals out
    around 1200 HP of damage each time.
    
    
    When  the  fight ends, watch the little dance sequence with Freya, then
    the  FMV  that shows. Watch the next few cinemas, then meet the rest of
    the  party  at the entrance of Cleyra. Make your way down the tree, and
    all  the  way  to the bridge (you'll have to fight pairs of Alexandrian
    Soldiers along the way. At least one pair in each room). Once you reach
    the bridge, you'll meet Puck, who tells you to return to the town.
    
    
    Right  away,  you'll  have to fight a Black Mage, then some Alexandrian
    Soldiers, then another Black Mage or two. If you go to where you fought
    the Antlion, you'll find a Moogle who has a letter, and a task for you.
    Save  your  game here, then head up the stairs. At the top, you'll have
    to  make  a decision. If you choose "Head up", then two of the citizens
    will die, so choose this one:
    
    - Head to the Right
    
    Now head to the next area, and when Dan's Family enters, choose:
    
    - Let's go to the left
    
    This  will  save  them,  and make you fight another Black Mage, and two
    Alexandrian Soldiers. On the next screen, choose:
    
    - Head to the right
    
    Now when you are near the observatory, choose:
    
    - No, we're not safe yet
    
    And  you'll  head  to  the  Cathedral to make your stand. As you try to
    enter,  a  lot  of Black Mages will surround you, but a Stranger with a
    huge  spear  comes  and saves you. When you enter the cathedral, you'll
    learn  that it was Fratley, the one Freya has been searching for. After
    he  leaves,  Beatrix  returns, and steals their Magic Stone. Follow her
    outside,  and  in  the  cathedral lobby, speak to each of the surviving
    citizens to get items that include:
    
    - Remedy
    - Phoenix Down
    - Zuu Card
    - Nymph Card
    - Elixer
    
    And  more  items  can be found too. Talk to the Moogle to use a Tent to
    rest  up,  and  save  your  game, then agree to deliver his letter. Now
    leave, and follow her outside.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BEATRIX
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 17     HP: 4736    Weak against: None     Spoils: None
    AP: None      Steal: Ice Brand, Thunder Gloves, Phx. Down
    
    Right away, use Vivi to cast Slow on her, then continue to cast it when
    it  wears  off.  Use Vivi to cast Blizzara and Fira on her coninuously,
    and  use  Zidane  to  steal items from her like Thunder Gloves, Phoenix
    Down,  and  an Ice Brand if you're lucky. Use Freya to cast Reis's Wind
    to  heal the party, and use plenty of potions and Phoenix Downs to heal
    your party. Also use Lancer with Freya to do some good damage. Her most
    powerful  attack (that can kill you), is Shock, which can deal at least
    800  HP  of  damage.  After  she takes enough damage, she'll cast Stock
    Break, and make your entire party go down to 1 HP, and run off with the
    Stone.
    
    
    You'll  end up back on a ship, where Beatrix ran off to, so head up the
    stairs  when  you  take  over  as Zidane, and follow Beatrix to watch a
    cut-scene.  When it ends, Vivi runs off, so follow him down the stairs.
    As you do this, Serino the Moogle appears, so go back up and chase him.
    Give  him the letter that was from Mopli, and he'll give you a Kupo Nut
    for  delivering  it.  Accept his offer to deliver his letter to Moodon,
    then  save  your  game, and go back down and follow Vivi again. Use the
    Pods to return to Alexandria...
    
    
    When  the game takes over, you play a small mini-game where Steiner and
    Marcus  have to escape their hanging cell by swinging it back and forth
    until it crashes into the wall. Hit either left or right on the control
    pad to swing your weight back and forth until it crashes. When it does,
    run  around  the  outer area to the large ladder on the other side, and
    make  sure  you  remove  anything valuable from Marcus. Now go left and
    enter  the  room,  and watch as Marcus runs off. Good thing you removed
    anything you had on him, eh?
    
    
    After  you  get  back  together  with your party, head out where Marcus
    left, and run outside. Head north, and avoid any guards that chase you.
    Enter the castle, and run up the stairs as fast as you can. Head around
    the  outer balcony, and through the southern doors, then go left and up
    the  next set of stairs, and through the wooden doors to the north. Now
    head  up  the  stairs,  and through the next doors at the top. In here,
    examine  the  purple  flame  to  the  northwest of the room. Pull it to
    reveal a hidden path, so take it.
    
    
    In  the  next  room, hop onto the rotating platform, and ride it to the
    ledge  with the two chests to get a Tent, and the Ice Brand, a powerful
    sword  for  Steiner.  Immediately  equip  it  to him, then hop onto the
    platform again, and take it to the other side of the room. Run down the
    spiral  stairs,  and  take  them  all the way down to the bottom of the
    area.  Once  on the circle platform, head north, and through the double
    doors.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ZORN & THORN
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 16     HP: 4896    Weak against: Ice     Spoils: None
    AP: 00        Steal: Mythril Armor, Mythril Armlet
    
    Level: 16     HP: 2984    Weak against: Ice     Spoils: None
    AP: 00        Steal: Stardust Rod, Partisan
    
    These two aren't hard to beat at all. All you have to do is use Vivi to
    case  Blizzara  a  lot on them, have the Ice Brand equipped to Steiner,
    then  use  his  Blizzara Sword attack on them, use Freya to either heal
    the  party with Reis's Wind, or just attack with Lancer, and use Zidane
    to  steal  items  from them, particularly the Mythril Armlet and Armor,
    and  the  Stardust Rod from Zorn. After enough damage, they'll run away
    from the fight.
    
    
    When  you take control of Zidane, you have Dagger in your arms. Talk to
    the  Moogle here to use a Tent and to save your game, then take her all
    the way back upstairs and to the Queen's Lair at the top of the stairs.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BEATRIX (Yes, again...)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 19     HP: 5709    Weak against: Ice     Spoils: None
    AP: 00        Steal: Survival Vest, Ice Brand
    
    This  fight is like the other fights with Beatrix (what was it, 2 other
    fights  too? Geez...), in that you should use Vivi to cast Slow on her,
    and  use  Steiner  and Zidane to attack her, and use Steiner's Blizzara
    Sword  attack to do some good damage. Use Vivi to continue to cast Slow
    and  Blizzara  on Beatrix, and use Zidane to steal items from her, like
    Phoenix  Down  and  an Ice Brand. If your health gets low, use Freya to
    cast  Reis's Wind on the party, and be sure to heal often. Beatrix uses
    the same attacks as before, and also like before, when she takes enough
    damage, she'll drop everyone down to 1 HP, then stop the fight.
    
    
    Watch  the  cut-scene, and when you take over as Freya and Beatrix in a
    battle   against  a  Bandersnatch,  use  Beatrix's  Climhazzard  attack
    (remember  what  it did to you in the last battle? Good, that's why you
    should  use  it). You'll take over as Zidane, so quickly hop across the
    rotating  platform  before  the Bandersnatch catches you, then run down
    the stairs until you reach a few Black Mages. Fight 'em, kill 'em, then
    dump  'em.  Continue down the stairs, and kill the next Bandersnatches,
    and  watch  as  Steiner leaves to help Freya and Beatrix. Kill the next
    set of Bandersnatches with Freya, Beatrix, and Steiner.
    
    
    When  you  take  over  as  Zidane, return to the Moogle where you saved
    Dagger, and get a letter from him to deliver (his letter to Monty). Now
    head  down  the stairs south of the Moogle room, and continue until you
    get  trapped.  Watch in pain as Thorn and Zorn laugh at you, then laugh
    your ass off when some "special" guests drop in. :)

    RALVUIMAGO
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 18     HP: 3352    Weak against: Ice     Spoils: Ether(s)
    AP: 07        Steal: Oak Staff, Adaman Vest, Phx. Down
    
    The  worm  returns,  and  this  time, he's not that easy to beat. Right
    away,  use  Dagger  to cast Shell and/or Protect on the party, then use
    Vivi to cast Blizzara on it. When it coils up and reacts to the attack,
    use  Zidane  to  steal  stuff  from it, and heal the party with Dagger.
    Since  this  fight  is  long, you can steal everything from Ralvuimago:
    Phoenix  Down,  Oak  Staff,  and an Adaman Vest. Don't try to attack it
    when it's coiled up, because it barely does any damage at all.

    When  you start, you'll speak with Ramuh, who says that if you can find
    his  5  shadows, and compile the story correctly, he'll join his powers
    with  yours. You'll take control of Dagger, so run forward and give the
    letter to Monty, then save your game. Now, on with the 5 stories:
    
    Beginning Story: To find the Beginning Story, head north of Monty the Moogle,
                     and then west up the side of the green branch, and Ramuh
                     will tell you this story.
    
    Hero Story: This one is simple. Just go to where you first met Ramuh, and he'll
                tell you this story.
    
    Cooperation Story: Head past where you heard the 'Hero' Story, and onto the
                       next screen. Now run north, then south, and down the branch
                       until you reach another screen with a chest to your left.
                       Run forward to talk to Ramuh, and get this piece of the
                       story. While you're here, open the chest to get The Ogre
                       weapon for Zidane.
    
    Silence Story: After getting the 'Cooperation' Story, head north of the branch
                   you ran down earlier, and onto the next screen. There is a
                   chest to your right, and as you approach it, Ramuh appears.
                   Talk to him, then go back a screen, and run back up the green
                   ramp.
    
    Human Story: Once you are at the top of the ramp, run around to the right, and
                 go across the bridge. Now run down the left-hand ramp, and past
                 the point when a "?" appears over Dagger's head, and Ramuh will
                 appear. He'll ask you if you give up, so say "no", then hop
                 off the ledge and open the chest below to get the Mythril Armlet.
                 Return to Monty the Moogle, and run south of him. Open the chest
                 to get a Mythril Vest, then run north, and towards a corner in
                 the swamp to meet the last Ramuh.
    
    Now return to where you met Ramuh, and he asked you if you want to give
    up,  and  speak  to  him. He'll ask you to put the story in the correct
    order, which is:
    
    - Beginning
    - Cooperation
    - Silence
    - Human
    
    If  done  correctly,  he'll  ask  you  if  you  are satisfied with your
    choices,  so  say  "yes".  Now  after  his speach, you will receive the
    Peridot,  which  allows  you to summon Ramuh in battle. After viewing a
    few  FMVs,  you'll end up back in Lindblum, after it took a devistating
    blow.
    
    
    Enter the Inn to the left of you, and run upstairs, and give Moodon the
    Moogle  a letter if you have one. Now take the letter that he wants you
    to  deliver if you haven't done so already, then exit the Inn, and head
    north.  On the next screen, head north again, to the rubble, and search
    it  to  get  the Lindblum Card. Now enter the house to the right of the
    rubble, and search the two chests to get an Ether and a Phoenix Pinion.
    Exit  the  house,  and  head north, and onto the next screen to meet up
    with Minister Artania.
    
    
    Watch  the  cut-scene  to  learn of your next objective, and you'll get
    3000  Gil from Cid. Now take this time to explore the only area left in
    the  city  of  Lindblum,  and go shopping. Buy plenty of items from the
    medicine shop, as well as some weapons, and forge new ones at the Synth
    shop.  It's  recommended  that  you buy Exploda from the Synth Shop, as
    well as equipping the Peridot to Dagger before you leave:
    
    
    Butterfly Sword (Requires Dagger, Mage Masher)........300 Gil
    The Ogre (Requires 2 Mage Mashers)....................700 Gil
    Exploda (Requires Mage Masher, Mythril Dagger).......1000 Gil <--- Get this!!!
    Cotton Robe (Requires Wrist, Steepled Hat)...........1000 Gil
    Silk Robe (Requires Silk Shirt, Bandana).............2000 Gil
    Desert Boots (Requires Leather Hat, Leather Shirt.....300 Gil
    Yellow Scarf (Requires Feather Hat, Steepled Hat).....400 Gil
    Glass Buckle (Requires Glass Armlet, Leather Wrist)...500 Gil

    Power Belt (Requires Glass Buckle, Chain Mail).......2000 Gil
    
    
    Head  to  the  aircab  station,  and  ride  the  aircab to the [Theater
    District].  Enter  the artist's house to find some Ore in a chest, then
    go  south  down  the  steps,  and  enter  the  Clock Tower. Open up the
    scattered  chests to find 340 Gil, 262 Gil, and 993 Gil. Exit the Clock
    Tower,  and  run south to find Lowell, so speak with him, and he'll run
    off  to  Alexandria to find an acting job. Now go back to the [Business
    District],  and  speak  with  the  man  in  the  part  of town with the
    fountain,  and  you'll go off to meet with Cid on the base level of the
    castle.
    
    
    He'll  tell  you not to get lost in the Excavation Site, and he'll give
    you  the  World  Map before you head off. Once you reach Dragon's Gate,
    speak  to  Moonte,  save  your game and use a Tent if you need to, then
    give  him  a letter from Moodon if you have it. Read it, then shop with
    the merchant once more before leaving:
    
    Ice Brand...............3780 Gil

    Multina Racket...........750 Gil

    Exit  onto  the World Map, but before heading to Qu's Marsh, head right
    (east)  and cross the small bridge over the river, then enter Chocobo's
    Forest which is directly across from the bridge.

    This  is the place that you want to go before heading off to Qu's Marsh
    again.  Once  you  are  here, talk to the Moogle, and he'll tell you to
    take his Chocobo, who he calls Choco. Choco runs away, however, but the
    Moogle  tells  you  to  catch  him outside of the forest by finding the
    Chocobo  foot  prints,  then  using the Gysahl Greens to call him. When
    riding  a  chocobo, you won't come into any random battles while on the
    World  Map.  Go  outside,  and  step on the chocobo marks, then use the
    Gysahl  Greens  to call Choco. Return to the forest, and speak with the
    Moogle  to  learn  about  the  chocobo, and what it can do: It can seek
    hidden  underground  treasures. Now he'll ask you if you want to play a
    game for 60 Gil per minute. Say yes, then begin a game:
    
    
                          - How to play Chocobo Hot & Cold -
    
    Directional Pad: Move Choco
    [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, Kupo!
    
                                   - Choco's Cries -
    
    'Kweh' means 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 0.
    
                                    - Other Rules -
    
    POINT SERVICE: You rack up points for each item you find. After enough points,
                   you can exchange the points for items! This is what it keeps
                   track of:
    
                   High Score (Area)
    
                   # of games played (Area)/Total
    
                   Current points
    
    DIGGING DEPTH: Each time you press [Square], Choco digs 6 feet underground. The
                   deeper the item, the more valuable it is, and the more points
    	       it's worth.
    
    POINT VALUES FOR ITEMS:
    
                   Echo Screen............01 Point
                   Soft...................01 Point
                   Potion.................01 Point
                   Antidote...............01 Point
                   Gysahl Greens..........01 Point
                   Eye Drops..............01 Point
                   200 Gil................02 Point(s)
                   Ore....................02 Point(s)
                   Remedy.................04 Point(s)
                   Stone with Pattern.....20 Point(s)
    
                   NOTE: You also get to keep whatever he digs up, even the Gil
                   that he digs for you.
    
    POINT BONUSES: If you find a treasure within the 5 seconds of another treasure,
                   you'll get an additional 5 bonus points.
    
    DIGGING BONUS: If you happen to dig up 4 or more items in one 60 second game
                   session, Mene the Moogle will give you a bonus, which is that
                   he'll DOUBLE the amount of points everything is worth for the
                   remaining amount of time left in your session, and he'll add
                   an extra 10 seconds to the game clock for you.
    
    POINT EXCHANGE SYSTEM: When you exchange your points for items, you'll get a
                           list to choose from:
    
                           Robe of Lords........10000
                           Protect Ring..........8500
                           Wing Edge.............3500
                           Viltgance Card........1800
                           Ether..................450
                           Ore....................250
                           Phoenix Down...........150
                           Gysahl Green............10
    
                           Use your points wisely, and be sure to save up as many
                           points as you can before trading them in for items. ^_^
    
    
    LEVELING UP WITH CHOCO: As you collect points, Choco the chocobo can level up.
                            There are different parts of him, like his Beak. The
                            more points you rack up, the higher he levels up.
    
    CHOCOGRAPH: This is also known as the "Stone with Pattern", and this area is
                located somewhere outside of the Chocobo Forest, and it contains
                tons of valuable treasure...
    
    
    
    When you're ready, begin to play Chocobo Hot & Cold! Also note that you
    can  always  purchase additional Gysahl Greens from Mene the Moogle for
    80 Gil per Gysahl Green. Here are the Chocobo Commands:
    
                                - Chocobo Navigation -
    
    [X]        : Enter Chocobo's Forest
                 When you meet certain requirements...
    [Triangle] : Open Menu
    [Square]   : Look for treasures
    [Circle]   : Dismount
    [Select]   : Switch navigation map
    [L1] [L2]  : Camera Control
    [L2]       : Lock/unlock camera rotation
    [R2]       : Switch perspective
    
    Now  if  you  exit  the  Forest, and equip the Chocograph, it'll say to
    search  the  Stream, where it meets the ocean. To find it, simply cross
    the bridge again, then run left, and to the beach, and search there for
    a chest. Here is what I found in my chest:
    
    2 Elixer
    3 Hi-Potion
    4 Ether
    2 Germinas Boots
    
    
    When  you are done, head back west, and enter Qu's Marsh. Head north to
    find Quina in the frog pond, and she'll rejoin your party once more. If
    you wish, you can catch some more frogs to earn more items:
    
    2 Frogs: Ore
    5 Frogs: Ether
    9 Frogs: Silk Robe
    
    When  you  finish,  head north again, and enter Quale's house and speak
    with  him. Now head back outside of his house, and veer around the back
    of  it, and Quina will chase some frogs off the screen. She'll lead you
    to the excavation site!

    Once  you  enter,  you'll have to run away from a killer machine across
    three different screens, all containing swinging blades. Be sure NOT to
    let  him  catch  up  with  you, or you'll have to fight him. Try not to
    touch  the  blades  either,  since  they'll slow you down. On the third
    screen,  stay  on  the top of the screen, to avoid the large gap in the
    road. After the three screens, you'll be safe from him, but then you'll
    have to fight a boss battle...
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    LANI:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 19     HP: 5708    Weak against: None     Spoils: None
    AP: 00        Steal: Coral Sword, Gladius, Ether
    
    This  fight  may  seem  difficult  at first, but it's not. Start off by
    having  Vivi  cast  Slow on Lani, then have Dagger summon Ramuh on her.
    Also,  be sure to have Dagger cast Protect and Shell on herself and her
    party  members  during  the  fight.  Use Fira and Blizzara on Lani with
    Vivi, and use Quina to mainly heal the party. Use Zidane to steal items
    such  as  Ether,  Gladius,  and  even a Coral Sword, but the latter two
    items  are  very  hard  to  come  by. Another note: Be sure to have the
    Auto-Potion ability equipped to any party members who can use it, since
    it's a very useful ability to have.
    
    
    Head  down  the  stairs, and at the bottom, run left, and up the stairs
    until you find some yellow flowers. Pick one, then move in front of the
    hole  in  the  wall, and hit [X] when a "!" appears over Zidane's head.
    This will cause the Gargant to eat the flower, allowing you to hop onto
    it  to  ride  it  to the other side. Once he drops you off, head up the
    northern  stairs,  and speak with the Treasure Hunter to get directions
    on  where  to  go.  Now run down the stairs, and speak with Mogki to do
    several things, like save and such, but also to shop with Mogshop:
    
    Potion................050 Gil
    Phoenix Down..........150 Gil
    Echo Screen...........050 Gil
    Soft..................100 Gil
    Antidote..............050 Gil
    Eye Drops.............050 Gil
    Annoyntment...........150 Gil
    Tent..................800 Gil
    
    
    You can also purchase a Phoenix Pinion, Ether, and a Remedy for 555 Gil
    from Stiltzkin, the gold Moogle.
    
    NOTE: For this part of the walkthough, you'll have to call many Gargants with
          flowers (yellow ones). Instead of telling what to do exactly, I'll just
          say "Call the Gargant", which means for you to pick a nearby yellow
          flower, then standing near it to call the Gargant.
    
    Run down the path to the right of the two Moogles, and call the Gargant
    with the yellow flowers here. When he drops you off, head north to find
    a  chest  containing  Fairy  Earrings.  Take them, then return south to
    where  he  dropped you off, and call the Gargant again. Run back to the
    Treasure  Hunter,  and run north of him, and onto the next screen. Call
    the Gargant here.
    
    
    After  he  drops  you off, head to the right, onto the next screen, and
    hit  the  switch.  Go  back  a screen, and re-call the Gargant. When he
    drops  you  off, run up the set of stairs, then north and onto the next
    screen to find a chest with some Ether inside. Go back a screen, and go
    to  where  it dropped you off. Once here, head north, and onto the next
    screen,  and run around the bend, and onto the next screen. Here you'll
    find Switch No. 2, so hit it, then go back to where the gargant dropped
    you off, and call it again.
    
    
    After  it  drops  you off, hit Switch No. 1 again, and ride the gargant
    back  to  the first area. Run back past the Treasure Hunter, and run to
    the  south-  east path, and ride the Gargant here to a new area. Run up
    the  stairs, and hit Switch No. 4, then head through the doorway to the
    right  of  this  switch, and call the gargant. Once you've been dropped
    off,  head  to  the right, and open the chest to get Lamia's Tiara. Now
    return  to  where  it  dropped  you off, call the gargant, hit switch 4
    again, then go back to the right, and call the gargant once more.
    
    
    In  the  new area, run to the right to find tons of vines. Climb across
    the  bottom  of  the  vines,  and  head  through  the door. Talk to the
    Treasure  Hunter  here,  and give him a potion to dig. Dig up the rocky
    wall  here  to find Kuppo the Moogle hidden behind it (just wait for an
    "!"  to  appear  to  know when to dig). Here, you can save, use a tent,
    shop  with  MogShop,  or  get  a  letter  from  him that he asks you to
    deliver.  Do  this, and begin your digging. It takes anywhere from 9-50
    independant  strikes  with your axe pick on the areas here, but you can
    find numerous Hi-Potions here if you are patient.
    
    
    When  you  are  done,  head  down  the  southeast path, and on the next
    screen,  head  west, and search the corner to find a Survival Vest. Now
    return  to  the  vine area, and climb up to the northwestern ledge, and
    hit  the  Exit switch, then climb back down to the lowest ledge on your
    right  and  enter  the  next  area.  Call the last Gargant to exit this
    place.

    Your  goal  in this area is to reach the yellow building above the open
    canyon. Run underneath the suspended building, and around the canyon to
    the  right, then run onto the raised area in the center, then make your
    way across it and into the new area.
    
    NOTE: There is one particular enemy in this area which is a pain in the ass,
          and that is the Cactuar enemy. This green guy may look small, but his
          1000 Needles attack can whipe out your party in a matter of minutes,
          since it takes off 1000 HP of damage if it hits someone. My advice is
          to Flee from a fight with this guy, unless your party is EXTREMELY
          powerful at this point in the game.

    When  you  first  enter  Conde  Petie,  you'll be greeted warmly by the
    locals  with  a solid "Rally-Ho!" from each of the citizens. Search the
    area  if  you wish to activate a few ATEs, then head into the Item Shop
    (Wendy's  Item Shop), and do some shopping, then save the game with the
    Moogle  here.  When  you're done, head up the stairs, and talk to Vivi,
    who  is  speaking with two dwarves. After he runs away, follow him back
    down  the  stairs,  and  into  the Item Shop to find a Black Mage who's
    talking to Wendy, then Vivi enters, and chases the Black Mage away.
    
    
    Now  it's time to head to the Southeast Forest, and into the Black Mage
    Village, but you should first buy some weapons and items:
    
    Grocer:
    
    Potion................050 Gil
    Phoenix Down..........150 Gil
    Echo Screen...........050 Gil
    Soft..................100 Gil
    Antidote..............050 Gil
    Eye Drops.............050 Gil
    Annoyntment...........150 Gil
    Tent..................800 Gil
    
    
    Conde Petie Weapon Shop:
    
    Poison Knuckles....................5000 Gil
    Multina Racket......................750 Gil
    Stardust Rod........................760 Gil
    Flame Staff........................1100 Gil
    Ice Staff...........................980 Gil
    Lightning Staff....................1200 Gil
    Oak Staff..........................2400 Gil
    Mythril Fork.......................4700 Gil
    Mythril Armlet......................500 Gil
    Lamia's Tiara.......................800 Gil
    Ritual Hat.........................1000 Gil
    Adaman's Vest......................1600 Gil
    Magician Cloak.....................1850 Gil
    
    
    When  you're  ready,  head  out of Conde Petie, and run south of it and
    enter  the Southeast Forest. To find it, head south of Conde Petie, and
    near  the  ocean.  Now  head east through the brush, until you find the
    green  forest  towards  the  end  of the forested area. Once you enter,
    you'll  spot  the Black Mage run off to the right. Now follow the signs
    in  the  forest  where  an  owl sits. If he flys away as you run down a
    path,  then  that  means that you are running in the correct direction,
    which you can find out by reading the sign in the middle of the fork in
    the road, and follow the direction that says "Where there are no Owls".
    Continue to do this until you spot the Black Mage, so chase him.

    As  you  enter  the  village, everyone in your party runs off somewhere
    else, and you're left with a few ATEs to keep you company:
    
    Life On The Run
    Gourmand's Nose
    Everyday Life  (And many more...)
    
    Enter the Weapon Shop to Zidane's right, and purchase whatever you need
    in  weaponry  and/or  armor.  Now  head to the north, and onto the next
    screen. Run across the bridge and enter the Inn, and search the bed for
    some  Virgo.  Exit the Inn, and enter the Medicine Shop across from it,
    and  search  the bookshelf for some Ether, then do some shopping if you
    need  to.  Now  exit out of the Medicine Shop, to the south. Run to the
    left,  and  enter  the next door, and you'll find Dagger here. Speak to
    her,  and she runs off to find Vivi. This is the Synth Shop, so be sure
    to get some goodies before leaving:
    
             Butterfly Sword (Requires Dagger, Mage Masher)........300 Gil
             The Ogre (Requires 2 Mage Mashers)....................700 Gil
             Exploda (Requires Mage Masher, Mythril Dagger).......1000 Gil
             Rune Tooth (Requires 2 Mythril Daggers)..............2000 Gil
             Cotton Robe (Requires Wrist, Steepled Hat)...........1000 Gil
             Silk Robe (Requires Silk Shirt, Bandana).............2000 Gil

             Yellow Scarf (Requires Feather Hat, Steepled Hat).....400 Gil
             Glass Buckle (Requires Glass Armlet, Leather Wrist)...500 Gil
             Germinas Boots (Requires Desert Boots, Fork)..........900 Gil
             Cachusha (Requires Magus Hat, Rubber Helm)...........1000 Gil
             Coral Ring (Requires Lightning Staff, Rod)...........1200 Gil
             Gold Choker (Requires Linen Cuirass, Soft)...........1300 Gil
             Magician Shoes (Requires Germinas Boots, Bone Wrist..1500 Gil
             Barette (Requires Needle Fork, Barbut)...............1800 Gil
             Power Belt (Requires Glass Buckle, Chain Mail).......2000 Gil
             Madain's Ring (Requires Bone Wrist, Stardust Rod)....3000 Gil
             Fairy Earrings (Requires Magic Armlet, Soft).........3500 Gil
             Reflect Ring (Requires Anklet, Madain's Ring)........7000 Gil
    
    The Rune Tooth weapon is a very good deal, since it's the most powerful
    weapon you can get for Zidane so far in the game.
    
    
    As  you exit the Synth Shop, run left, and watch as Vivi runs past you.
    Enter  the area he came from, and speak to the two Mages here, then run
    the  way that Vivi ran off to earlier. On the first screen, head to the
    northeast,  and to the outside of a hut with Mogryo the Moogle. Use him
    to  save  your  game,  then  enter  the hut. Speak to the Mages who are
    guarding a chocobo egg from the hungry Quina Qu, and search the room to
    get some Gysahl Greens. Now run back to the Inn to find Vivi.
    
    
    Speak  to  him inside of the Inn, then rest when Dagger comes in. Watch
    the  cut-scenes,  then  after  they all end, you learn that you have to
    reach  the  Northwest area of the Outer Continent. Before you leave the
    village,  return  to  the Synth Shop, and climb the ladder inside. Once
    outside, run to the north, and then to the right to find a hidden chest
    with  843 Gil! Also while you are here, stock up on tons of Hi-Potions,
    and  sell all of your normal Potions. Also, you can find a hidden chest
    inside of the Synth Shop, with 2000 Gil inside! Return to Conde Petie.

    Once  you  are back here, head to the area guarded by Richard Watchman.
    To  get  here,  simply  locate  the Medicine Shop, and head through the
    northern  exit.  Speak to him, and he tells you to find "His Holiness".
    To  find  him,  simply  run  to  the  Inn, and you will find him (David
    Heavenguard)  outside  of  the  Inn.  Speak to him to learn that only a
    married  couple  may pass by the guarded area. Dagger agrees to tie the
    knot with Zidane, and off you both go.
    
    
    Watch  the funny ceremony, and either choose to go and see the twins at
    the  gate, or to have Quina and Vivi get married (this is not required,
    since Vivi and Quina join you anyways). Head to the guards, and they'll
    let  you  through, but not before a thief runs by, and out of the town.
    When you regain control of Zidane, run forward, and into the next area.

    As  you first enter here, you'll find the little thief hanging alone on
    a  branch,  since  her Mog ran away. Quina runs off too, and you get to
    now name Eiko, and she joins your party. Right when you take control of
    Zidane,  equip  Eiko  with  the  proper equipment, as well as some good
    Accessories, so she can learn some abilities. Now run to where Eiko was
    hanging  earlier,  then  climb  up  the  vine, and open the chest for a
    Remedy.  Now run to the right, and onto the next screen. Once you reach
    the  stone  statue,  take  out the Blue Stone. Now go back to where you
    began.
    
    
    Run  the way Quina ran off to (to the right), and onto the next screen.
    Head  up  the  vine  to the north right away, and run left and open the
    chest  to  get  a  Tent.  Check the stone statue here, and take the Red
    Stone. Go back down the vine, and head right again. On the next screen,
    head  up the northern ramp, and speak to the Gold Moogle, and buy a set
    of  Magic Tag, Tent, and Ether for 666 Gil. Give Suzuna a letter if you
    have  one,  then  save  your game and use a Tent. Head to the southwest
    path, up the ladder, then to the right, running along the giant roots.

    HILGIGARS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 28     HP: 8106    Weak against: Thunder     Spoils: Tent, Elixer
    AP: 09        Steal: Fairy Flute, Mythril Fork, Phx. Down
    
    This  guy  may  seem  very  powerful,  but he's actually rather easy to
    defeat,  just  as  long  as  you use the proper tactics. First off, use
    Dagger  to  cast Protect and Shell on as many party members as you can,
    then use her to summon Ramuh during the fight. Use Zidane to attack him
    at  first,  but as you weaken Hilgigars, use Zidane to steal items like
    Phoenix  Downs  and  Fairy  Flute from him. Be sure to use Eiko to cast
    Float  on  the  party,  as  well  as  her Phoenix summon, which is very
    potent.  Vivi's  Slow  and Thundara attacks work well against Hilgigars
    too.
    
    
    After  the  fight,  take  the  Yellow  Stone from the statue, then head
    right.  At  the  next fork, head to the bottom path, and take the Green
    Stone  from  the  statue  here,  and take the Ether from the chest too.
    Return  to  the fork, and take the other path. Continue north until you
    exit  this  area,  and  you are back on the World Map. Run forward, and
    enter the next town.

    Once  you  enter Eiko's home, you'll see that she keeps several Moogles
    as  pets,  but  Mog  is  her  favorite  one.  She'll ask Zidane TONS of
    questions,  and  go to prepare dinner. After she does this, head to the
    northeast  path.  Here  you'll  find Quina and a Moogle, blocking off a
    restricted area. Return back a screen, and an automatic ATE will begin,
    and  it requires you to help Eiko cook a good meal. Choose whatever you
    wish,  and go to the left path, and speak to Vivi. Attempt to enter the
    kitchen,  and  you  are not allowed to enter, since dinner is not ready
    yet.  The Moogle will take you to Eidolon wall if you follow him, so do
    so.
    
    
    When  you reach the "Eiko's Kitchen" ATE, select 12 people to cook for.
    When  it  ends,  go  back  to where you found Quina earlier, and you'll
    learn  about  the  Eidolon  Wall.  Go back to the main area of the town
    (where  the  fountain  is), and search the southern region for a hidden
    chest with a Tent. Take it, then go to the entrance of the town to find
    Dagger.  View the wall, then return back to the kitchen area, and a ATE
    will begin (Eiko's Kitchen 2). Go to the kitchen to have a meal, and to
    watch  a  cut-scene.  Search the chest here for an item, then carry the
    pot into the kitchen for Eiko.
    
    
    Now just watch the next few cut-scenes, and head back outside. When you
    do,  you'll  be  offered  to rest up, so do this, then head back to the
    entrance  of  the  town. Watch the next cut-scenes, and you'll convince
    Eiko to go with you to the Iifa Tree. When you exit back onto the World
    Map,  take  this time to search around and level up as much as you can,
    since  the  Iifa  Tree  is  hard, and there are a few tough boss fights
    coming up. Another good idea is to SELL all of your normal Potions, and
    purchase  as  many  Hi-Potions  as  you can, then equip the Auto-Potion
    ability  to  as  many characters as you can. This way, when they use an
    Auto-Potion  in battle, you'll heal them 450 HP instead of a measly 150
    HP. Also, be sure to have Eiko learn Auto-Regen, and Fenrir, as well as
    High-Tide. Make sure Dagger has learned High Tide and Chemist, too.
    
    
    When  you  are all ready, head back to the Mountain Path, and make your
    way  north,  and onto the World Map, then run forward to the giant Iifa
    Tree.

    • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • -
    
    When  you first enter the Iifa Tree, you'll find that you need to break
    a  seal  outside it. What you need to do is have Eiko break it for you,
    and  she'll  receive  the  Ruby. Equip this accessory to her right now,
    then run forward, and enter the Iifa Tree. Run north along the branches
    until  you  reach a Moogle (Mocchi). Give him a letter if you have one,
    then  save  your  game  with the little guy. Now continue forward a few
    screens until you reach the elevator which takes you down to the center
    of the tree. (Have Zidane step on it to activate it).
    
    
    When  you  reach  the  inside of the tree, run down along the branches,
    being  sure  to  check  each  little  side-branch that have chests. You
    should  first  hit  the switch on the second-lower branch to the right,
    and  a  chest  will  drop down. Open the chest for a Phoenix Down, then
    continue  your way down the tree. Along the way down, you'll find a few
    chests containing:
    
    - Hi Potion
    - Ether
    - Lamia's Flute (weapon for Eiko, so equip it)
    - Remedy
    
    Search  the  area for the chests (they're very easy to find, since they
    don't  require  much searching to find), until you reach a green leafed
    area, and a leaf-elevator. Your party will step on it, and ride it down
    to the bottom of the tree.
    
    
    As you ride down, you'll have to fight a few battles with some enemies,
    but  after a while, you'll end up at the bottom of the tree. Your party
    will  run  off, so search the area for two chests. One is at the bottom
    of the ramp, and it holds an Elixer, and there is one hidden behind the
    center region, and is hidden. It holds the Brigandine armor for Zidane,
    so  equip  it  to  him  right  away.  When  you  are ready, examine the
    left-most  part  of  the area, and when you see a "?" above Zidane, hit
    [X]  to  activate  something.  Run  up and check with Dagger, and a new
    enemy will enter the frey.

    SOULCAGE
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 26     HP: 9765    Weak against: None     Spoils: Elixer, Phx. Pinion
    AP: 09        Steal: Brigandine, Oak Staff, Magician Cloak
    
    This  battle  can either be very hard or pretty easy. Be warned though,
    since  at  least  2  of your party members will be KO'd, so have Eiko's
    Phoenix  summon  ready  to revive them. Have all of your party member's
    Auto-Potion  abilities  on, and have Eiko's Auto-Regen ability on, too.
    Use Vivi to cast Bio and Fira, and have Zidane mainly attack physically
    for  the  whole  fight. Have Eiko heal and use summons, and have Dagger
    use  her  Ramuh  summon,  and  heal also. If you can, try to steal with
    Zidane,  but  you'll  probably be too busy attacking and healing to try
    it.
    
    
    When the boss dies, you'll have to head back to Madain Sari, so go back
    to the World Map, and make your way through the Mountain Path, and back
    to Madain Sari.

    Once  back  here,  run  to Eiko's house, and search the kitchen for any
    items  that  you  might  have  missed, like the hidden chest behind the
    table,  which  holds a Phoenix Pinion. Run through the outside kitchen,
    down  the  stairs,  and  enter the doorway underneath the kitchen, near
    where all of the Moogles are.
    
    
    Inside here, watch the cut-scenes, then when you take control of Zidane
    again, open the chest for a Survival Vest, then exit this room. Now run
    to  the  Eidolon Wall, and speak with the Moogles to find out that Lani
    has  taken  Eiko  hostage. Have the Moogle restore your MP and HP, then
    choose to save Eiko. Watch the cut-scene, then fight the new Red-Haired
    man one-on-one.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    AMARANT:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 22     HP: 8985    Weak against: None     Spoils: Tent(s)
    AP: 09        Steal: Ether, Poison Knuckles
    
    This fight is really easy, even though Amarant can be decieving. Simply
    attack  him  a  few times (have Auto-Potion on), then when he retreats,
    wait for him to say "Here I go!" and run back in the fight, then attack
    him a few more times. Repeat this until the fight ends.
    
    
    After  the fight, return to the spot where you talked with Eiko earlier
    near  the  kitchen,  and you'll get the Memory Earring from Eiko. Watch
    the  cut-scenes,  then  exit  the  room. Rest up with the Moogle in the
    kitchen  if  you  wish,  then  head  outside.  When you see a "!" above
    Zidane's  head,  press  [X],  and  you'll hear Dagger's song. Watch the
    lengthy cut-scenes, and eventually, you'll have Amarant join your party
    at  the entrance of Madain Sari, then you can choose your party. Choose
    whatever  party  you want to, but be sure to have both Eiko and Amarant
    in  it,  so  you  can  level  them  up  right away, and teach them some
    abilities. When you are prepared, return to the Iifa Tree.

    Once  back  here,  make your way to the tree, and Zidane as well as the
    rest  of the party will make their way up to the top of the tree. Watch
    the cut-scenes as the story advances, and you'll be forced into a small
    boss fight.

    MISTODON(S):
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 13     HP: 7512    Weak against: None     Spoils: Tent, Elixer
    AP: None      Steal: None
    
    This fight is very easy, but it can become troublesome, since there are
    two  of  these  guys.  They're  weak  against fire, so use Vivi to cast
    either  Fira  or Bio (Bio works better), and have either Eiko or Dagger
    (whoever  you have with you) to use a summon spell, then use Zidane and
    Amarant to use physical attacks.
    
    Watch  the  even MORE cut-scenes that follow, and when you take over as
    Zidane  again,  run  north to find a hidden Moogle, and save your game.
    Save  it,  then run south down the branch. Once you start running, keep
    running  WITHOUT stopping, because there are Mistodon's chasing you. If
    you  go  fast  enough,  you  can  get to the bottom of the tree by only
    fighting  once. At the bottom, Dagger will summon Leviathan to help her
    mother,  but  it  will  only  do worse. She'll also get the Aquamarine,
    which  allows  her  to  summon Leviathan at anytime. Now just watch the
    amazing  FMVs that follow, and save your game when it asks you to, then
    switch discs to Disc 3!

    • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • -
    
    This  is  your  return  to  Alexandria.  You'll  watch as the Princess,
    Steiner,  Dr.  Tot,  and  Beatrix  head into the castle, then as Zidane
    stays  at  the  pub for a while, while the rest of his gang goes off to
    watch  Ruby's  show.  Marcus and Blank meet up with Vivi outside of the
    pub, and this is where you will begin the 3rd Disc.
    
    
    Head  right,  and  into  the  main  part of the city. Talk to Hippaul's
    mother  down  the street to learn that her son, Hippaul, plays too many
    card games, and he needs excerise. Agree to race him, and play the game
    where  you  must press [Square] and [Circle] back and forth to race. If
    you  do  this twice, you'll get the Wyerd Card. Get Hippaul to Level 20
    to  get  a  Carrion  Worm Card, and so on. Head south and into the main
    square of town. Search the lower-left hand area of the screen to find a
    hidden  Zombie  Card.  Check the northern part of the square (where you
    can't see Vivi because of the statue), and search the area for a Lizard
    Man Card. Now check the area to the northwest to find the Sahagin Card.
    Now  return to the Pub, and speak with the bartender to learn that your
    friends went to the mini-theater. Exit the pub, and go left.
    
    
    On the next screen, you can find Doug's Item Shop:
    
    Potion................050 Gil
    Hi-Potion.............200 Gil
    Phoenix Down..........150 Gil
    Echo Screen...........050 Gil
    Soft..................100 Gil
    Antidote..............050 Gil
    Eye Drops.............050 Gil
    Remedy................300 Gil
    Annoyntment...........150 Gil
    Tent..................800 Gil
    
    Stock up on plenty of Hi-Potions and whatever else you are low on, then
    exit  the  shop.  Head  north and into the second square of Alexandria.
    Talk with the surrounding people, and you'll even find a Flower Girl to
    speak to...
    
    
    Anywho,  stop  by  the surrounding shops (Weapon, Synth Shop, which are
    right next to each other...very convienient). Be sure to synth some new
    armor,  and  the  Angel Bless weapon. Head north to the dock area, with
    the  two  Alexandrian  guards, then search the northwestern stairway to
    get a Phoenix Pinion, then search the northeastern stairway to get 3927
    Gil!  Return  back  a  screen,  and  head west to the ally, and decline
    Blank's  request  to  see  Ruby's play, and continue south. On the next
    screen, enter the first house on the left, and search the corner to the
    left of the table to get some Eye Drops, then exit the house. Now enter
    the  door  below  it  to find 3 Moogles. Give Kupo a letter if you have
    one,  then  climb  up the ladder. Pull the rope at the top, and a chest
    will  drop.  Open  it  to  get Hippaul's treasure, Ironite Card, Goblin
    Card, Fang Card, Shiva Card, and Ramuh Card! What a deal!
    
    
    Climb  back  down  the ladder, and search the eastern part of this room
    for  a  Potion.  Now return to the ally where Blank and Marcus are, and
    agree to see the play with them.
    
    
    Run  down  the  stairs,  and  begin  to watch the play. As this starts,
    you'll  watch  a  cut-scene with Steiner, Dagger, Tot, and Beatrix. Tot
    gives  Dagger  an Opal, a Topaz, and an Amethyst item. These are great,
    since they allow Dagger to summon more eidolons. Also, after that ends,
    another  cut-scene continues, which shows Eiko talking to Dr. Tot. When
    you  take over as Eiko, run north, and she'll get knocked over by Baku.
    He'll deliver the letter to Zidane.
    
    
    When  you  take over as Zidane, head to the left of the Pub, and run to
    the  dock area near the square (where you found over 3000 Gil). Here is
    where  you  will  meet  up  with  Freya  and  Armarant once more. After
    watching the cut-scene, head on the boat that comes for you. Search the
    dock  at  the  castle to get an Ether and a Phoenix Pinion. Go left and
    enter  the  inner area here to find another Phoenix Pinion, then return
    to  the dock, and head to the north this time. You'll find that Steiner
    has  kicked Eiko out of the castle for being annoying, but Vivi asks if
    they  can  see  Dagger, so he agrees. After a long line of cut- scenes,
    everyone decides to head to Treno, for the Card Tournament.

    Upon  entering  Treno,  your party splits up to go sightseeing, and Dr.
    Tot  reccommends  that you go off and register for the card tournament,
    since  it  is  the  last  day for it. When you get the "How He Ended Up
    Here" ATE, choose for Vivi to visit home. Head to Queen Stella's house,
    and trade in these Stellazzios for some items:
    
    Virgo:  Phoenix Pinion.
    Taurus: 2000 Gil
    
    Now  head  off to the King's Mansion auction house, which lies south of
    Queen  Stella's house. When the "City People" ATE occurs, Eiko will get
    the  Chimera  Armlet  that  the Four-Armed Man drops. Enter the auction
    house, and bid on a few items, but be sure to get the Dark Matter item,
    because  it  is  very  rare.  I  suggest  entering the Weapon Shop, and
    fighting  the  monster. If you win (which is easy if you have the Angel
    Bless  weapon  on Zidane; you can kill him in about 2-3 hits), you will
    get  15,000  Gil!  If you really want to make some cash, find the Treno
    citizens, and they'll offer to buy the items you bought in the auction.
    If you refuse their offer at first, they will rise their offer. But the
    good  thing  about this is that you can always re-purchase whatever you
    sold  back  at  the  auction. I don't recommend selling the Dark Matter
    though,  since it's the best item you can get. Head to the Card Stadium
    now, and enter it to start the tournament (NOTE: You can buy four cards
    from  the  Card  Seller outside of the stadium; Goblin Card, Flan Card,
    Skeleton Card and a Fang Card for 100 Gil each.).

                                     Second Round
                               Opponent: Cardona Bishop
    
                                Difficulty: Medium/Hard
    
    For  this battle, use cards with good defense (lots of arrows), and use
    ones  that are 1P, 2P, 1M and 2M, and higher if you can, but try not to
    lose rare, powerful cards, because you will need them.
    
    
    Now  you  can  challenge the champion, but before doing so, go find the
    Moogle  near  the  Weapon  Shop, and save your game. Now go back to the
    tournament when you are ready.

                                      Final Round
                                 Opponent: Sailor Erin
    
                                   Difficulty: Hard
    
    This is an easy fight if you use cards with good defense, and ones that
    are 1M, 2M, 3M, 2P, 3P, or even 4P. Just place your cards well, and you
    should be able to win with ease.
    
    
    If you win, you will get your pick from a few Oglop Cards, and you will
    get  the  Rebirth  Ring.  After  the fight, you will find that you have
    beaten  Erin,  the  pilot  of  the Hilde Garde 2 airship, which can fly
    without  Mist.  Regent  Cid  is with her, saying that the ship can't go
    very  fast,  but  they  made it to Treno. After the talk with Cid, Eiko
    runs in, and tells about something terrible happening to Alexandria.

    After watching the phat-ass FMV showing Bahamut blowing up Alexandria's
    small houses, you'll take over as Dagger, making an important decision.
    Assign different tasks to different sets of knights, then begin to save
    the  citizens  of Alexandria with Steiner and Beatrix. You will have to
    fight  in a battle in each area of Alexandria, which is about 7 fights.
    You can get around 1274 EXP from a single Mistodon, so you can level up
    quickly  here. To beat them, simply use normal attacks from each of the
    two  soldiers,  and  use  Beatrix's  Climhazzard  ability  when you are
    fighting the two Mistodons at once.
    
    
    After  the  fights  end,  you will regain control of Dagger. Run up the
    stairs,  then head south on the balcony. Now go left and up the stairs,
    and  through  the northern doors. Run to the left again, and run up the
    stairs  and through the door. Now make your way up the stairs, past the
    knight  statues  that block your route back down with their swords once
    you  pass  them  by.  Once outside, a FMV shows the castle changing, so
    head  up  the  stairs,  then  continue your way up the stairs until you
    reach the roof with the eyeball in the center. Watch the cut-scene, and
    as  Eiko jumps off the airship, and begins a bitchin' FMV sequence that
    doesn't end right away.
    
    
    When you take control of Zidane, head to where Dagger and Eiko are, and
    if  you  wish  to, save the people in the castle along the way. Once at
    the  top,  the  game  takes  over,  and  you'll  watch as Alexandria is
    destroyed  by  a  strange  man, who seems to be even more powerful than
    Kuja...

    Once  you get into Lindblum with Zidane, open the chest near the bed to
    get  the Egoist's Armlet, then climb the stairs and open the chest near
    the Moogle to get an Elixer. Now save your game with the Moogle. Try to
    leave  the guest room, and Blank enters, and will tell you where Dagger
    is.  Exit the room, and head to the elevator, and ride up to the [Upper
    Level]. At the top, run north through the doorway, then run through the
    lower  path,  in  between the two sets of stairs, to find your party in
    the  next  room.  They'll  tell  you that Cid wishes to meet you in the
    Royal Chamber, so leave the room, and head up the stairs, and enter the
    double doors at the top. The meeting will start in the conference room,
    so  watch the cut-scenes and the ATEs. When you take control of Zidane,
    run back to the guest room to find Dagger.
    
    
    After  finding  out that you need to find the Unusual Potion, Beautiful
    Potion,  and  the  Strange Potion, and they have to be mixed at a 5:2:3
    ratio, exit the Castle by heading down to the Airship area, and ride to
    the  [Theater  District].  Enter  the Artist's house along the way, and
    search  the  area  near  the  stairs  to  find the Strange Potion after
    speaking  to the artist. Check the chest in here to get a Lapis Lazuli.
    Now  head to the clock tower, and Cinna will get the Unusual Potion for
    you  to  borrow.  Go  back to the clock tower, and enter it. Search the
    various  chests  to  get 970 Gil, 4826 Gil, and 1273 Gil! Return to the
    airship  area, and fly to the [Business District]. Head to the Inn, and
    give Moodon a letter if you have one.
    
    
    Head  north  to  the  town  square, and enter the house directly to the
    north,  and search the two chests for an Elixer, and a Remedy. Now head
    to  the next screen to the northeast, and speak to Alice outside of her
    shop,  and  ask about the Potion. She'll give you the Beautiful Potion.
    Now do some shopping at the Weapon/Item and Synth Shops:

    Now  with  all three Potions in your sweaty palms, return to the Throne
    Room  in  the Lindblum Castle. Everyone decides to go to the Black Mage
    Village,  so  head  down  to  the [Base Level], and hop aboard the Blue
    Narciss  (you  have  to ride the trolly to Serpent's Gate). Once at the
    gate,  you'll find a chest with a Chimera Armlet, so take it, then head
    to the dock, and board the airship.
    
    
    On  the ship, you meet Quina again, and you get to choose your party. I
    suggest  taking  along  those members who need to level up, like Quina,
    Freya, and Steiner. Choose your party, then control the Blue Carciss:

                             [SQUARE]:   Reverse

                             [R2]:       Switch perspective
    
    Fly  all  the way to the northern continent, and head to the shore that
    is  south  of Black Mage Village, and run through the forest, and enter
    the Village.

                             RETURN TO BLACK MAGE VILLAGE
    • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • -
    
    Right  when  you  enter  the village, Vivi runs off and leaves you. Run
    into  the  Item shop to find that nobody is there, so the ladder behind
    the  counter is now available to you. Climb up it, then hop on the bed,
    and  open  the hanging chest to get a Black Belt. Head to the cemetery,
    and speak with Black Mage No. 288. Run to the house where the two mages
    watch  a  chocobo  hatch,  and  where  Vivi  goes.  Watch  the next few
    cut-scenes, then exit back onto the World Map, and return to your ship.
    Head  north  of the Outer Continent, until you reach a sandy beach. Run
    on  it,  and  find four sandholes. Enter the one furthest from you, and
    more  to  the north than the others. If you try to enter any other one,
    you'll just end up in a battle with a monster.
    
    
    Once  you  fall into the hole, you'll find out that you've been trapped
    by  Kuja,  in  his  home  lair.  He'll  say that he'll let you and your
    friends go if you do him a favor, so agree. Walk outside, then south to
    the two Black Mages, and you will be transported to Kuja himself. He'll
    ask  you  to get the Gulug Stone for him from Oeilvert, a place with an
    anti-magic  barrier  around  it. He doesn't want to go himself for this
    very reason. When he asks you to choose a party, I suggest taking along
    Amarant,  Steiner  and  Quina,  since  they don't rely heavily on magic
    (Oeilvert has an anti-magic barrier, remember?). Watch as your party is
    summoned,  then  transported  to the dock where the Hilde Garde 1 lies.
    Run  to  the right, and up the stairs, then run to the left, and to the
    ship itself, and board it.

    Once  you  have landed in the Forgotten Continent, you'll appear on the
    World Map there right away. Activate your mini-map on your screen, then
    head  to  the  south through the canyons. Once in the first part of the
    canyons,  head  west, and the sky should start to turn darker (a darker
    shade  of  orange), which means that it's turning to nighttime, and you
    are heading in the correct direction. Eventually, the path should start
    to  spiral,  and  become  linear.  After  a while, you will reach a new
    beach.  From  there,  head  west  some more, and enter the next canyon,
    which also spirals around. Follow it, and you will reach Oeilvert in no
    time.

    ***LARGE NOTE***:
    THIS  AREA CONTAINS ENEMIES KNOWN AS EPITAPHS. THESE STONE-LIKE ENEMIES
    CAN BE STRONG AT TIMES, BUT IF YOU BATTLE THEM RIGHT, YOU CAN GAIN TONS
    OF EXPERIENCE POINTS FROM EACH BATTLE:
    
    7000+ EXP. FROM A BATTLE WITH ALL 4 OF YOUR PARTY MEMBERS ALIVE
    9000+ EXP. "    "  "     "    JUST 3 "  "    "     "       "
    14000+ EXP "    "  "     "    "    2 "  "    "     "       "
    30000+ EXP "    "  "     "    "    1 "  "    "     "       "
    
    YA  CATCH  MY  DRIFT? SO IF YOU FIGHT THE FIGHT WITH ONLY ONE CHARACTER
    LIVING  AT  THE  END,  YOU  CAN  GAIN  SEVERAL LEVELS WITHIN JUST A FEW
    BATTLES. THE CATCH? WELL, THEY CAN CAST MIRROR, WHICH "MIRROR"'S ONE OF
    YOUR PARTY MEMBERS (NOT NECESSARILY ONE IN YOUR CURRENT PARTY, THOUGH),
    AND  IT  WILL  CAST  MIRROR  A TOTAL OF THREE TIMES IN THE BATTLE, ONCE
    AFTER EACH TIME YOU HIT IT OR STEAL FROM IT. THE MORE MIRROR IMAGES YOU
    FACE,  THE  MORE  EXP YOU CAN GAIN. BUT TO MAKE THE BATTLE EVEN EASIER,
    SIMPLY  EQUIP  JELLY,  LEVEL-UP,  AND  ABILITY-  UP.  JELLY  MAKES  THE
    EPITAPH'S ONLY ATTACK, PETRIFY, UN-USABLE.
    
    SO HERE IS HOW YOU SHOULD FIGHT HIM:
    
    - ATTACK ONCE TO BRING ON THE MIRROR
    - KILL MIRROR IMAGE
    - ATTACK AGAIN TO BRING ON SECOND MIRROR
    - KILL SECOND MIRROR IMAGE
    - ATTACK ONCE MORE TO BRING LAST MIRROR
    - KILL LAST MIRROR
    - KILL EPITAPH
    
    I  SUGGEST KILLING OFF TWO OF YOUR CHARACTERS, THEN FIGHTING THE BATTLE
    WITH  ONLY 2 CHARACTERS, THAT WAY, IF IT CLONES ONE OF YOUR CHARACTERS,
    THE  OTHER  WILL  NOT BE CLONED (IT CLONES THE SAME MEMBER CONSISTANTLY
    THROUGHOUT THE BATTLE). AND IF YOU SURVIVE THE FIGHT WITH EITHER 1 OR 2
    MEMBERS,  YOU  CAN  GET ANYWHERE FROM 14000-40000 EXP FOR EACH FIGHT!!!
    BUT  MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE AUTO-POTION AND JELLY ABILITIES ON, OR ELSE
    THIS METHOD MIGHT NOT WORK, AND YOUR CHARACTERS WILL EITHER DIE OFF, OR
    BECOME  PETRIFIED. I STRONGLY SUGGEST STAYING HERE FOR A FEW HOURS, AND
    LEVEL  UP  YOUR CHARACTERS UNTIL THEY ARE AROUND THE LEVEL 50-60 RANGE,
    THEN  MOVING  ON. THIS ALSO WORKS WONDERS FOR LEARNING ABILITIES, SINCE
    YOU LEARN THEM MUCH QUICKER HERE. ENJOY!!!!
    
    
    Equip  the  most  powerful weapons on your party members, then continue
    north.  Enter the large doors, and go inside. Head north once inside to
    find  a  chest  with a Remedy, then climb the stairs next to it, and go
    right  to  find  another chest, this one with a Rising Sun item. Now go
    back down the stairs, and enter the door to the left. Inside here, open
    the  southern chest to get a Diamond Sword (crap, shouldn't have bought
    that  one from the Moogle...oh well, it's great for Amarant to throw in
    a boss fight...). Open the northern chest for a Shield Armor. Go back a
    screen,  and  go back up the stairs, but now go left, and onto the next
    screen.  Open  the  chest  for an Elixer, then check out the globe, and
    make it red. Go back downstairs, and re-enter the room to the left.
    
    
    As you walk past the center of the room, a hologram will appear, and so
    will  a short cut-scene. When it ends, go down the southern stairs, and
    in  the  room  with two flaming torches near some stairs. Check out the
    chest  to the right to get a Power Vest, then run up the stairs to find
    two  yellow  floor lights, and a chest with some Feather Boots. Now run
    to  the  light  on the floor to the far-left, then activate it. This is
    the  ANCIENT  SHIP.  Now  continue  to  activate  the  next  3 hologram
    projectors  in  this  room in a clockwise fashion. Once done, climb the
    stairs  again, and head out the left exit. Run across the large archway
    to the left, until you reach another globe. Check it out, and watch the
    cinema.  Now when it ends, continue to the right, onto the next screen,
    then through the blue door that unlocks for you.
    
    
    Watch  the  weird  cut-scene,  then exit the room, and pass through the
    hologram room, and re-enter the first main room. In the main room, head
    to  the  right,  and  enter  the doorway. At this time, equip the Clear
    Headed  and  Jelly abilities to your party, as well as Auto-Potion, and
    your strongest weapons and armor.
    
    
    Save  your  game  with  the Moogle, then head right some more, open the
    chest  for  the  Gaia  Gear, and through the next area. When a hologram
    appears,  watch  it,  then head through the next door. Step on the rear
    platform,  and you will be taken wayyy down to the bottom of this area,
    where  you  can  find  the  Gulug Stone. Attempt to take it, and a boss
    fight begins.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ARK
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 38     HP: 20002    Weak against: Shadow     Spoils: Pumice Piece
    AP: 11        Steal: Elixer, Power Vest, Holy Lance
    
    For  this  battle,  you'll need to use as many weapons and abilities as
    you  can.  Start  off  by stealing with Zidane, and try to get the Holy
    Lance  weapon.  Use Quina or Freya to heal the party when required, and
    be sure to have a Phoenix Down or two ready. Have Steiner use the Power
    Break  attack,  as well as just normal physical attacks. Amarant should
    use  his  throw ability and toss some EXTRA weapons (extra meaning ones
    where  you have 1 or more lying around), which causes some good damage.
    If  you need to replentish MP, use his Chakara ability to replentish MP
    of  a  character.  This  guy  has  tons  of HP, so keep up your attacks
    unrelentlessly until he dies off.
    
    
    When  the  fight  ends,  take the Gulug Stone that you've been dying to
    get, and watch as you are transported back to Kuja's home.

    When  you  take  over as Cid, hop south to the platform, then go right,
    and  into the room to start a small mini-game. Here, you'll have to get
    past  the  giant red beast without him seeing you. To do this, you have
    to  press  circle many times to take just a few steps. Press it as fast
    as  you can while he's looking away, then stop when you hear his noise.
    You  only have six minutes to do this, then set the weight on the scale
    and turn the hourglass, so be quick about it. If you get caught, you'll
    have  to  start over. Once you have the key, place the Clay, Stone, and
    Iron  weights  on the scale, then choose to climb on the scale, and Cid
    will turn the hourglass over.
    
    
    When  you  take  over  as Eiko, run into the right-hand room again, and
    save your game with the Moogle. Leave the room, and this time, go left,
    and  onto  the next screen, and up the stairs. Light the candle to your
    left,  then watch as a bloodstone activates to the right. Check it out,
    and  take  the  Promist  Ring.  Equip this to Vivi right away so he can
    learn the abilities, then run up the stairs. Examine the statues to the
    right  of  the  stairs, then attempt to go to the left exit. Some clear
    stairs appear, so take them to the next area.
    
    
    Run right, and light the candles here. Now go back a screen, and run to
    the  west.  Run  up the next stairs, and light the three large candles,
    and watch as two mirrors dissappear. Run through the new path, and take
    it  to the north to re-enter the same area, only now on the other side.
    Light  the  southwest candle here to make the statues on the other side
    dissappear, and return there, and light the two candles near the stairs
    (one  on each side). Now the other statues should dissappear, so run to
    the  right,  and finish lighting the rest of the candles here. Run down
    the  stairs,  and  light  the  last  candle here, and a bloodstone will
    appear at the top of the stairs. Examine it to get the Anklet.
    
    
    Now  run  through  the  new  doorway  to  the  right, and in the narrow
    hallway,  light  the  candle  that is about halfway down on your right,
    then examine the new bloodstone to get the Shield Armor. Run to the end
    of  this hallway, and run towards the screen, and up the stairs. On the
    balcony  here, light the first candle, then run around the balcony, and
    enter the next room. In the library, run to the far left, and light the
    candle to cause some stairs to lower. Run up them, then run to the left
    again,  and  light the next candle to reveal a hidden passage. Enter it
    to  find the Bloodstone containing a N-Kai Armlet. Take it, then return
    to  the library, and climb up the smaller set of stairs here. Run right
    and light the candle, then head through the new passageway.
    
    
    Run left up the stairs, and light the candle on the way up. At the top,
    light  the  candle,  then  run  back  down the stairs, and re-enter the
    library.  At  the  bottom of the bookshelves, there is a statue with an
    unlit  candle  near  it.  Light  it, then head through the newly opened
    path.  Light  the  candle  out here, then go back, and run to the left,
    where  the library has expanded. Save your game with Mogsam if you wish
    to (it's recommended), then run left.
    
    
    On  the  next screen, there are two candles. Light them, take the Black
    Hood  from  the  new  Bloodstone  that  lights up afterwards, then head
    through  the  door,  across the balcony, and onto the opposite balcony.
    Light the next three candles here, and take the Venetia Shield from the
    new  bloodstone.  Now put out the candle that is near the statue of the
    angle,  but  the  one that is to it's left. This will cause a shadow to
    come  up.  Now run back across the balcony, and put out the candle that
    is  to  the  left  of the demon statue here, and another clear, crystal
    stairway  will  pop up. At this time, be sure to equip the N-Kai Armlet
    to  Vivi,  so he can cast Water. Run up the next sets of stairs, and at
    the  top,  light the last candle, and the defense system will activate,
    causing a boss battle.

    VALIA PIRA
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 36     HP: 12119    Weak against: Water     Spoils: Elixer, Ether
    AP: 11        Steal: None
    
    This  fight  will be very easy if you have deactivated every Bloodstone
    in  the  Desert  Palace,  since for each bloodstone you deactivate, the
    boss  loses  an enchancement (a Magic enhancment, Defense, Magic Evade,
    etc...),  and  therefore becomes weaker and easier to defeat. It's weak
    against  water, so use Vivi to cast Water on it, and use Dagger to cast
    her  Leviathan  summon  onto the boss as much as you can. You shouldn't
    need to heal much in this fight, but if you do, use Eiko to heal, since
    she has tons of healing spells at this time. This fight can also become
    much  easier  (and more fun), if you toss a Tent onto the boss himself.
    If  successful,  this  will  cause the boss to get poisoned, and become
    cursed  with  darkness  and  become  blind  (Note:  Only do this at the
    beginning of the fight, or else you will heal him).
    
    
    After  the  fight  ends,  light the candle once more, then hop into the
    light portal that appears.
    
    
    Once you regain control of Zidane, run off the ship, and back to Kuja's
    room  to give him the Gulug Stone. Watch as your friends are freed, but
    as  Kuja  kidnaps  Eiko, and runs off with the Gulug Stone. Run back to
    the  teleporter  you  arrived in, and take it. Once back near the ship,
    run  towards it to see that it's gone. Run off the screen to the north,
    and  watch the short cut-scene. Now hit the ground switch behind you to
    lower  a  ladder,  then  climb down it. Head to the northwest, and exit
    this  area,  and  follow him on the Blue Narciss. Make a party that has
    Zidane, Steiner, Amarant, and Vivi/Freya.
    
    
    You'll  land on the Lost Continent, and your goal here is to reach Esto
    Gaza,  which  is to the west of where you land. I suggest running a bit
    north  to  find  the Chocobo tracks, and calling a chocobo to get there
    faster.

    Enter  the  area,  and  run into the large building ahead of you. Speak
    with  the  Bishop  to  learn that Kuja, along with several Black Mages,
    passed  through  here  earlier, carrying Eiko with them. Before heading
    the  way  they went to Mount Gulug, head right, and into the shop area.
    Purchase  any  new  weapons  or armor, as well as plenty Magic Tags and
    Vaccines.  Now  return  to  the  room with the Bishop, and head out the
    north  exit.  Speak  with  Mogrika and read the new letters he/she has,
    then save your game. Now head right and down the stairs, then enter the
    next area, up the stairs, and enter the doorway at the top.

    Right  when you enter the Mountain dungeon, head to the right, and into
    the  small  room.  A  note about this area: All of the enemies here are
    fire-based,  so  be  sure to have any type of Water and/or Blizzard/Ice
    attacks  ready for use in battle, as well as Abilities that act against
    poison  and  heat,  like  Body  Temp  and  Antibody.  Anyways, read the
    bulletin board which reads:
    
                                    Bulletin Board
    
                           Don't forget to pull the lever
                           down when you first use the well!
    
                                              Slaar the Mole
    
    Check out the southeastern part of the room to get 9693 Gil, then climb
    the  ladder  and search the area for some Ether. Now head to the right,
    and  down  the  large ladder. At the bottom, you will find a Red Hat on
    the  platform  to  the  right of the ladder. Now go back up the ladder,
    exit  the  room, then enter the cabin to the right of where you entered
    this  area  in.  Run  through  it, then on the other side, approach the
    rope,  and  climb  down it. Once you first stop, head right, and into a
    cabin with Moolan the Moogle. Give him the letter that you should have,
    then  save  your game. Search the lower right-hand corner here to get a
    Wing Edge, then exit the room, and back to the rope.
    
    
    Run past the well and the rope, and run left. Run across the ledge, and
    into  the  next  cabin. Open the chest near the entrance to get Demon's
    Mail.  Read the bulletin board if you wish, then return to the well. Go
    back  to  the house with the Moogle, and exit out the right side of the
    house. Out here, head into the hard-to-see house to the north, and head
    up the stairs towards the back of the house. Go across the platforms to
    the left, and out the exit. Follow the ledge out here to find some Gaia
    Gear  at  the  end.  Now run back to the well and the lever. As you run
    back  through  the house though, some Red Dragons attack from the roof.
    For  the  fights with them, simply use Water and Ice based attacks, and
    it'll be a cinch.
    
    
    If  you read all of the signs and bulletin boards, you should know that
    in  order  to make the well run correctly, you have to pull it 3 times.
    If you need to know how, return to the house that is to the west of the
    well,  and  read  the sign inside. While you are here, head through the
    doorway  to  the north of the entrance of this house, and you will find
    Mogtaka  the Moogle. Give him a letter, use the Mogshop, then save your
    game.  Now  run  up  the stairs next to him, and enter the house to the
    right.  Run  towards the chest and open it to get an Elixer. Oh, and if
    you  have the Elixer at this time, that means you've already fought the
    Red  Dragon that freaked the hell out of you when it busted through the
    window. :)
    
    
    Okay,  now  return to the lever near the well, and pull it down 3 times
    to  lower  a  rope. Climb down the rope. At the bottom, another few Red
    Dragon  attacks,  so  defeat them, then run through the new hole in the
    wall.  As  you enter, you'll watch as Zorn and Thorn attempt to extract
    the  eidolons  from Eiko, but fail as Mog, her protector, emerges as an
    eidolon  himself,  and  enters  a  boss fight with Zorn and Thorn. Eiko
    summons  him,  and  he  completely destroys them. Afterwards, Eiko will
    receive  the Ribbon, which allows her to summon Madeen (Mog) in battle.
    After  that  occurs,  Thorn  and  Zorn emerge together, and form a boss
    battle.

    MELTIGEMINI
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 42     HP: 24348    Weak against: Mini     Spoils: Vaccine(s)
    AP: 11        Steal: Vaccine, Golden Hairpin, Demon's Vest
    
    Right  away, use a Tent on Meltigemini, so as to make him become bitten
    by  Silence/Darkness/Poison  Snake,  which  will lower his strength and
    defense  for  the  entire  fight.  This  creature has many poison/venom
    attacks,  but just as long as you have Antibody equipped to all of your
    party  members,  it'll be okay. You'll lose Vivi for this fight, but in
    return,  you'll  get Eiko. Use her to summon Fenrir and Phoenix, and to
    heal  the  party  when  needed. Amarant's Throw option can do some good
    amounts  of  damage  when you choose a good weapon to throw, so do this
    every  so  often. Just use Zidane to attack physically, and use Steiner
    to use Magic Break, and physical attacks until Meltigemini dies off.
    
    
    After  the  battle, Zidane and th rest of your party meets Hilde, Cid's
    long-lost  wife.  She  says she had to give up the Hilde Garde to Kuja,
    but  will  gladly  return to Lindblum with Cid. Watch the cut-scenes as
    Hilde  makes  Cid  apologize  for cheating on her, and as she turns him
    back into a human, finally.

    • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • - • -
    
    When  you  awaken  as  Zidane, you are informed that you must meet with
    Lady  Hilda  in  the  conference  room  right  away.  But first, before
    leaving,  talk  to the Moogle here to get a letter from him to deliver,
    then  save  your  game.  Now  run  out  of  the  guest  room and to the
    conference  room,  which  is on the [Upper Level]. In here, you'll find
    out that Kuja's home is a place named Terra, and it has something to do
    with Shimmering Island. You can't get to Terra straight from Shimmering
    Island,  but  what  you  can  do  is  to  enter  a  castle in Forgotten
    Continent,  where  the  seal  can  be broken, and to enter Terra. It is
    Ipsen's  Castle.  During  this time, a few ATEs will activate, so watch
    them.
    
    
    After the cut-scene, Steiner will enter, and say that Dagger is nowhere
    to  be  found  in  Lindblum.  Zidane sends Blank and Marcus to help him
    search  for  Dagger  in  Alexandria, but she still can't be found. Baku
    then  enters, and takes Zidane to meet Beatrix, who gives the Garnet to
    give to Dagger when you find her. Right after that, Zidane finds Dagger
    at  her mother's grave, and he gives her the Garnet. She then takes his
    dagger,  and uses it to cut off her hair in a cool FMV which also shows
    the  Hilde  Garde  3  take air. Once it takes flight, choose a party of
    people  you  wish  to  level  up,  then  return to the deck by pressing
    [Triangle].  Run  down the stairs to the left, and you can find some of
    your  party  members  standing  around  the  area. Search the area near
    Amarant  and  the ladder for a Tent, then speak with some of your party
    members to get some insight on their views.
    
    
    When  you  are  ready  and  have  the  party  of your choice, enter the
    navigation system of the ship, press [Select], and fly to the Forgotten
    Continent,  and  check the southern island to find a mountain with some
    waterfalls on it. Land right in front of the waterfalls, and run across
    the bridge and enter the area.

    Go  down the right-hand stairs when you enter, and check near the water
    for  the Capricorn Stellazzio. Now enter the room to the right, and you
    can  find  the  Four-Armed  Man  from Treno from a while back. Ride the
    elevator  up and talk to Noggy the Moogle and save your game. While you
    are  here, talk to the Synth man near Noggy, and synth some new weapons
    and  armor.  Head  to  the  left of the Synth Expert, and onto the next
    screen,  and  you  will  find the Weaponsmith in the left-hand room. He
    can't  sell  anything  because  his lift is broken, so you need to help
    him. Return to the entrance, and head to the left instead of right.
    
    
    In  this  room,  you will find three levers on the wall. Lower the left
    lever  twice, until the lift is on the ground, then examine the hole in
    the  wall.  Check  out  the staff that is lying next to the levers, and
    Zidane  will  put it in the hole. Now lower the right lever twice until
    it's  on  the ground, and ride it up to the weaponsmith. Now buy all of
    the  great  stuff he has for you. Now return to the area outside of his
    shop,  and  press the button to the right of it to hear something which
    has  happened below. Return to the entrance, and check out the northern
    statue  to  read  about  the Dragon God's blessing to the Stone. If you
    insert  Ore into it, you can transform your Aquamarine items, and get 2
    of  them. Another good thing to do is to fight the Grand Dragon outside
    of  Daguerreo  to level up your weaker characters quickly, and to learn
    abilities faster.
    
    
    When  you  are  ready, go back to the Hilde Garde 3, and fly to Ipsen's
    Castle,  which  lies  on the northwest continent (Forgotten Continent).
    You can just go to your [Select] menu, and choose the location from the
    world  map  there, then just fly there automatically. It lies inside of
    an  enclosed  canyon.  Once  you enter the perimeter of the castle, you
    must  choose  a  party: Zidane, Vivi, Steiner and either Dagger or Eiko
    (healers)  for the party. Be sure to equip the weakest weapons that you
    have  on  your  party  members, because the first half of the castle is
    upside-down, so your strong weapons will cause small amounts of damage,
    while  your  weaker  weapons will do strong amounts of damage. When you
    are ready, run up the large staircase, and enter the castle.

    Immediately  run  to  your  right  to find a semi-hidden chest with the
    Aquarius  Stellazzio,  then  check  to  your left to find another chest
    opposite  of the first one, this one with Dagger inside. Now run up the
    stairs  to the north of you. Talk with Kumool the Moogle that is to the
    left  of  you,  and save your game, do some shopping with him, and give
    him a letter if you have one. Okay, now run to the large pole that runs
    downward  (across  from  the Moogle), and use it to climb down a level.
    Now  run to the northwest (to the left of where you dropped down from),
    and  climb up the ladder. Hop off to the left balcony, then run to your
    left, and through the doorway to the left.
    
    
    Run a bit north on the next balcony, and head through the next doorway,
    which  leads  to  a ladder. Climb up this one, and choose to hop off to
    the  left,  and  run around the balcony to find a few chests. The first
    one has a Javelin, but you can't access the one behind it...yet. Return
    to  the  ladder,  and jump to the right now. Run across the balcony and
    open  the  chest at the end which contains a Broadsword. Go back to the
    ladder,  and climb down to the bottom, run right and up the stairs, and
    onto  the next ladder. Hop off the first chance you get as you climb up
    it,  and  run around the balcony to the right. Run around to the chest,
    and  get  the  Rod.  Go back to the ladder, and climb up it again until
    Zidane  automatically  jumps  off it. Enter the doorway to enter a room
    with  red  carpet. Check out the carved wall to the eastern part of the
    room, and do these in this order:
    
    EXAMINE
    PUSHED
    EXAMINE
    POUND
    THINK
    PUSH
    THINK
    TRY SOMETHING DRASTIC
    REST
    
    Do  this,  and  the door will open. Once outside, go right and open the
    chest  for  a  Barette.  Return  to  the  red  carpet room, and use the
    mini-elevator  that  is  in  the northern part of the room. At the top,
    you'll  find  Amarant.  Run  to  the  back,  and  take each of the four
    mirrors:
    
    Wind Mirror: "My power is protected behind a tornado."
    
    Water  Mirror:  "My  power  is  protected underwater, surrounded by the
                     earth."
    
    Fire Mirror: "My power is protected high atop a fiery mountain."
    
    Earth Mirror: "My power is protected under the shaking ground."
    
    
    After  taking  all four of these mirrors, attempt to leave, and Taharka
    appears for a boss fight.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    TAHARKA
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 46     HP: 29186    Weak against: Flare     Spoils: None
    AP: 11        Steal: Elixer, Mythril Claws, Orichalon
    
    This  battle  is  much easier if you have a Tent or two to spare at the
    beginning  of  the battle, so throw one on him right away. Also, if you
    have   Auto-Regen   or  Auto-Life  with  the  Auto-Potion  and  Chemist
    abilities,  that  would  make  this fight easier than normal. This boss
    doesn't like fire spells much, so use stuff like Firaga, Flare, Bahamut
    with  Dagger,  and  other  stuff too. So basically, use Flare with both
    Vivi  and  Steiner,  use  Bahamut  with Dagger, and use Zidane to steal
    items like the Mythril Claws and Elixers.
    
    
    After  the  boss  dies off, it's your job to leave the castle. Exit out
    the  door,  and exit out of the red carpet room to the right. Now climb
    down  the  ladder, and make your way all the way back to the pole where
    the Moogle is. There are a few traps in this room, and you can get back
    to  where  you  are if you fall into them. One of them leads you to the
    top  of a chandelier, where a chest lies. It's also a good idea to save
    your  game  again with the Moogle. Check out the chest to the northwest
    of  the  room  to  get  some Cat's Claws. Return to the entrance of the
    castle,  and  you'll  notice that there is a new stairway to the right,
    and a new path is in between these stairs and the doorway that you just
    came  out of. Enter it to return to the upper-level of the Moogle area,
    then  run  across  the  ledge,  and  onto the next screen. Run down the
    stairs, and enter the new area.
    
    
    Run  all  the  way to the left to find a chest with the Air Racket. Now
    hop  onto  the  center elevator, and you will enter a red-carpeted room
    with  an  electrified  sword.  Open  the  chest here to get the Golem's
    Flute,  then  grab  the  left-hand  vase first, and move it to the open
    shelf  to  the left, and do this a few times with both vases (move them
    in  a counterclockwise direction), until the sword gives power to them.
    Check  out  the  vase  to get the Ancient Aroma. Now return to the pole
    near  the Moogle, and climb up it, and land on the chandelier. Open the
    two  chests  to  get a Mage Staff, and a Fork. Go back to the entrance,
    and exit the castle.
    
    
    Outside,  you will find out that Amarant is still inside of the castle,
    so  re-enter it, and head into the Moogle room, and climb down the pole
    to find Amarant. At the bottom, you can hear him, so head south of this
    room,  and  Zidane will find Amarant lying down. Now make your way back
    up  the  pole,  and  re-exit the castle again. Outside, you'll find out
    that  there  is some kind of a connection between the 4 mirrors and the
    seal. There are 4 shrines you must locate, and conquer at the same time
    by  splitting your party up. Once on the ship, re-equip your party with
    the  strongest  weapons,  then  re-assemble your party, then prepare to
    take flight.

    Now it's time to take flight, and locate the four sacred shrines in Gaia:
    
    WATER SHRINE: This one is easy, since it's directly south of Ipsen's Castle
                  on the Forgotten Continent. It's out in the sea, and is
                  surrounded by a large whirlpool, and when you hover above
                  it with the Hilde Garde 3, it says "Water Shrine". Here, you
                  will have Dagger and Eiko enter this shrine.
    
    FIRE SHRINE: This one is located on the Lost Continent, northeast of Esto Gaza
                 and Mount Gulug. It's really easy to spot, since it's a fiery
                 volcano which is surrounded by ice. Here, you will drop off
                 Freya and Amarant.
    
    WIND SHRINE: This shrine is also on the Forgotten Continent, to the southeast
                 of the large continent. It's hidden within a narrow canyon, and
                 has some large vines covering it up, but once you get near it,
                 you'll know it's the Wind Shrine. Here, you'll drop off Vivi and
                 Steiner.
    
    EARTH SHRINE: This is the shrine you and Quina Qu will be entering, and it's
                  located on the Outer Continent, on the grassy plains. It has
                  a few small peaks surrounding it, and the ground shakes when
                  you get near it. It's to the southeast of the Iifa Tree, and
                  is on the southeast tip of the continent.

    This  Shrine  is  where  you  and  Quina  will play in. Equip Quina and
    yourself  with  the  strongest  Armor  and  Weapons, then head down the
    stairs.  As you first enter the hallway, a trap is activated, so when a
    "!"  appears  over  Zidane's  head,  hit  [X] right away to avoid being
    crushed.  Watch  the  few cut-scenes that occur that show the others in
    the  other  shrines,  then  approach the mantle where you put the Earth
    Mirror  into, and watch as the other party members do the same, but you
    have to fight the Earth Guardian.

    EARTH GUARDIAN
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 54     HP: 20756    Weak against: Wind     Spoils: Phx. Pinion
    AP: 11        Steal: Avenger, Rubber Suit
    
    This  fight  can  be  easy  if you have Auto-Regen and Auto-Potion both
    equipped.  Right  away,  toss  a Tent onto the Earth Guardian, then use
    Quina's  Mighty  Guard  ability  on  her  and Zidane. Now use Zidane to
    physically  attack  him  over  and over again, and use Quina to use her
    Blue Magic like Bad Breath, or Lvl 4 Holy attacks. This fight isn't too
    tough, just as long as you keep your health up.
    
    
    After  the  fight,  a few cut-scenes ensue, and you take control of the
    Hilde  Garde 3 once more. You have to take it to the Shimmering Island,
    which is the island to the south of the Lost Continent.

    Once  you  land, you will meet up with Garland for a moment, then he'll
    disappear. Dagger enters and tells you to come along. Follow her to the
    next  screen, and Zidane will see a blonde girl who runs away from him.
    Follow her to the next screen, then check out the chest to the left for
    an  Elixer. Now run towards her again to cause her to run off again, so
    follow  her across the bridge, and then down the bright blue web. Climb
    down  the second web to find a chest with a Remedy, then go back up the
    web,  and  run to the left, and hop across the gap. Keep running around
    to  the  right  and  open the chest that has a Mythril Racket. Take it,
    then  climb  down  the  next  web near the gap. At the bottom, open the
    chest  to  get  a  Demon's Vest, then approach the girl. Now follow her
    onto  another  bridge, then after she tells you to keep going, continue
    across  the  bridge  to  the  other side. Now just make your way up the
    stairs, until you reach a large set of steps where the girl stands, and
    says "welcome home" to Zidane.

    Right  away,  Dagger  looks up, watches something happen, a FMV occurs,
    then she passes out. Run down the stairs to Zidane's left, and speak to
    the  two  people to find out where the Inn is, then enter it. The party
    brings  Dagger  to the Inn, and she awakens. Re-enter the Inn, and open
    the  chest  for  some  Elixer,  then  exit  the Inn. Now head north and
    through  the  doorway,  and into the room with many people. Head out of
    the  doorway  to  the  right, and into the main part of town. Enter the
    shop  to  the  right, and you will find a chest with a Wing Edge, and a
    Moogle  trapped  inside  of  a large vase. Open it and save Moorock the
    Moogle.  Do  some  serious weapon Shopping here, and save your game. Be
    sure  to  buy the strongest weapons as you can here. Return to the room
    with  the  numerous  amounts of people standing around the large center
    crystal, then head down the stairs here.
    
    
    At  the bottom, speak with the Girl to learn that they are Genomes, and
    they  live  in  this  village. She leaves, so follow her to learn a lot
    more  about  Zidane, and this place. When you take over as Eiko, run to
    the  entrance  of this area to find Amarant. Talk to him, and he'll say
    that Zidane went through the portal, and Amarant will join you. So pass
    through  the  portal, and follow the path to the blonde girl, and speak
    with her, and Eiko will run off to get the others.

    Right  when you enter this area, Garland meets with you, and walks off.
    Follow him throughout this area by hopping from platform to platform as
    he  speaks  to  you  about  Genomes, Gaia, and Kuja. After that ends, a
    cut-scene starts, and Vivi and Eiko try to get Zidane to shapen up, but
    he  ignores  them.  This starts a fight with Amdusias, in which some of
    your  party  members  join  in  to help. Right after that, Zidane joins
    Quina and Steiner in another fight. Again, after that, Zidane gets in a
    fight  with  a  Shell  Dragon, in which he has trouble with, and Dagger
    enters, and helps him fight the monster off.
    
    
    When  you  regain  control of Zidane again, run through the right door,
    and  follow  the  path until you meet up with your party once more. Use
    Moorock the Moogle to arrange your party, then head to the right again,
    and  follow  the  path  way back to where Zidane was found by Eiko, and
    search  his  throne  for  the Holy Miter. Return to the moogle and save
    your  game,  then  head back to the left again. Continue this way until
    you  reach  an area full of blue lights. Check the control panel to the
    left  of the entrance, and hit the switch to activate the lights, which
    also  starts a 30 second timer for a bridge. Avoid the blue lights, and
    run across the room, then over the bridge before the timer runs out.
    
    
    In  the next room is a machine that turns the direction of the elevator
    in  the  next room. The elevator takes you to the top of this area, but
    you'll have to ride it up a few floors, then run back down and move the
    position  of  it  to align with your desired position in order to reach
    the  top  of  this  area,  and to reach the top room. This might take a
    while,  so  good  luck.  Once  you  reach the top room, head to the red
    transporter  to  the  left, and you will find yourself inside of a room
    with  a bunch of blue transporters. Use the blue transporters to search
    the  room  for  chests  containing  stuff  like  Battle  Boots, Elixer,
    Carabini  Mail,  and  even a Moogle. Take this time to get your desired
    party  (have  Eiko  and  Dagger  in it), rest up with a Tent, and equip
    anything you need to (the strongest stuff you have), and enter the door
    to the right of Mozme the Moogle.

    SILVER DRAGON
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 58     HP: 24055    Weak against: None     Spoils: Wing Edge
    AP: 13        Steal: Ether, Elixer, Dragon Mail, Kaiser Knuckles
    
    For this boss fight, you must have the Auto-Potion, Auto-Regen, and the
    Auto-Life abilities equipped if you want to survive. It's not that this
    fight  is  really hard, but the next two upcoming battles ARE hard, and
    having  these  abilities will help drastically in the upcoming battles.
    The  Silver  Dragon  uses  sleeping attacks, so Insomniac will help, as
    will any other anti-sleeping equipment. Use Dagger to summon Bahamut as
    much as possible, and use Eiko to summon Madeen for an easy fight. And,
    if  possible, use Zidane to steal any items that he can before you kill
    off the Silver Dragon.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    GARLAND
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 62     HP: 40728    Weak against: None     Spoils: None
    AP: 00        Steal: Dark Gear, Battle Boots, Ninja Gear
    
    This  fight  is  difficult,  but  just  as  long as you have Auto-Life,
    Auto-Regen,  and  Auto-Potion,  you  should  be  able  to  keep up with
    Garland.  Use  Eiko  to summon Madeen once more for this fight, and use
    Dagger to summon Bahamut as well as Odin for this fight. Having Reflect
    casted and/or equipped to your party is also a good idea, since Garland
    has  some  nasty attacks that he uses against you. Try with all of your
    might  to  steal items from Garland, since he has Ninja Gear and Battle
    Boots, which are strong equipment items.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    KUJA
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 64     HP: 42382    Weak against: None     Spoils: None
    AP: 00        Steal: None
    
    Once more, all of the "auto" abilities are a GREAT help in this battle,
    since  Kuja  is  stronger than Garland, and has more HP, since it takes
    more  damage  and  time  to take him down. Use Eiko's summon attacks to
    benefit  the  party,  like  Phoenix if necessary, and Carbunicle on the
    party. Once more, use Zidane to attack physically a few times, but then
    as  you  weaken Kuja, use him to steal useful items from Kuja. Dagger's
    summons rock in this fight, since both Odin and Bahamut do some serious
    amounts  of  damage to Kuja. One more thing: A Tent at the beginning of
    the fight (on Kuja), will do wonders if he gets bit by the snake, since
    his  defenses  are weakened, and so are his other stats. You can't beat
    Kuja, since towards the end of the fight, he goes into Trance mode, and
    casts Ultima on your party, which ends the fight.
    
    
    Watch  as  Kuja  basically  goes  wacko,  then  the  sweet ass FMV that
    follows.  When you take over as Zidane, run north, then down the steps,
    and run across the hologram bridge that appears. Run up the next set of
    steps  that  are  in  between  the eyes, then run back to Bran Bal, and
    return  to  the basement where you met the Blonde Girl to see a bad-ass
    FMV sequence, and to wrap up Disc 3.

    As you boot up Disc 4, you'll see that Zidane and his party have rested
    at  the Black Mage Village, and are giving the blonde girl a small tour
    of  sorts. Everyone speaks about life, time, things you can eat, money,
    and  Kuja,  and  the  Mist. They all discuss different things, and it's
    cool  to  see their imput on things. After a bit, everyone will head to
    the  Iifa Tree, so select your party (I had Zidane, Dagger, Steiner and
    Vivi).
    
    
    Fly  to  the  Iifa  Tree in the Invincible, and fly into the mysterious
    purple  and  black  orb  that is hovering above the Tree, and watch the
    sweet  FMV  that ensues. And right when you enter the area, you have to
    fight a boss...

    NOVA DRAGON
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 67   HP: 54940   Weak against: N/A      Spoils: Wing Edge
    AP: 13      Steal: Remedy, Dragon Wrist, Grand Armor
    
    This  is  one  tough  motherf*cker,  and has tons of HP for this fight.
    Start  off  with a Tent or two to try to get him bitten by the snake in
    the  Tent, then have Dagger summon Bahamut or Odin, or both. Use her to
    heal  and  summon  for  the  entire  fight. Use Zidane to attack mainly
    physically,  but  then to use stealing abilities to steal useful items.
    Steiner  and  Vivi  make  a great team, so use the Flare and Firaga and
    Thundagra  abilities,  as  well  as Steiner's Climhazzard attack on the
    dragon.

    As  soon  as  you enter this place, Garland talks to you, and tells you
    where  you  are,  and  what  it  is.  You are in Memoria, a place where
    memories are stored. Zidane has no idea what he means, so he decides to
    head  forth.  Choose the same party as you had earlier, then equip them
    with  the strongest weapons and armor. Now run north, and into the main
    castle.  Right  when  you  enter  the castle, you'll have the option to
    return  to  the  Invincible  if  you'd  like. Also, there is a hologram
    globe,  where  you  can  save  your  game, use a Tent, and switch party
    members  with.  These  are just like Moogles. Save your game here, then
    continue forward, and into the doorway.
    
    
    Run down the circular stairs to the left, and out onto the balcony. Run
    up  the  stairs  here  to  the  right, then continue up the next set of
    stairs to the left. Once you get up the last set of stairs to the left,
    and  are  running left, check the small alcove to the left of Zidane to
    find The Tower weapon. Equip this to Zidane right away. Now continue to
    the  north,  and  onto  the next screen. Run forward to initiate a boss
    fight.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    MALIRIS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 72   HP: 59497   Weak against: Water, Ice     Spoils: Phoenix Pinion
    AP: 10      Steal: Genji Armor, Ultima Sword, Masamune
    
    Maliris  is the first of the Four Choas Guardians in Memoria, and she's
    quite  tough  for  the  first of many bosses. Use the Thievery skill of
    Zidane  right  away,  then  use  him to steal as many items as you can,
    since  she has some amazing weapons, like the Ultima Sword. Use Vivi to
    cast  Blizzaga  and  Steiner  to  use  Blizzaga sword, since she's weak
    against  Ice  and Water (use Dagger's Scan ability if you don't believe
    me...). Dagger should be the healer here, since she has tons of Healing
    spells, but you won't need her for this if you have Auto-Regen...
    
    
    After  the boss battle, continue forward, and through the next doorway.
    Now  watch  the  cut-scene, then run north and onto the small platform.
    There  is  a  hidden save point to the right, and an Angel Flute to the
    left.  Use  the  save  point, and place Eiko in your party if you wish,
    then  take the Flute, and continue to the right. Head to the right, and
    up  the stairs, and into the stormy rooftop. You can find a secret card
    gamer  to  the left, so play if you wish, then head right, and continue
    along  until  you  see Zidane have a "!?" above his head. Zidane sees a
    scene  that  shows  Dagger as a girl, getting into a boat in the storm.
    After seeing this, head up the stairs, and fight the next boss.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    TIAMAT
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 72   HP: 59494   Weak against: Earth     Spoils: Wing Edge, Phx. Down
    AP: 10      Steal: Blood Sword, Feather Boots, Grand Helm
    
    This  is  the  second  Chaos  Guardian,  and  also a toughie. He's weak
    against  Earth,  so  use Vivi and Steiner to both use Meteor abilities,
    and  have  Eiko summon both Fenrir and Madeen in the fight. Beware that
    Tiamat  might  blow  one  or  two of your characters off-screen with an
    attack,  so  be ready when this happens. If possible, use Thievery with
    Zidane,  then  steal any items that you can from Tiamat before you kill
    him. Also, Comet and Meteor with Vivi work well against him.
    
    
    After  the  fight,  continue  up  the  stairs,  and through the eyeball
    doorway, but not before searching the stairs for the Rune Claws. On the
    next screen, run up the stairs, and follow the path until you reach the
    outer-space  area of the stairs, wher Garland tells you about Terra and
    Gaia  emerging.  Continue up these steps, and onto the next screen, and
    use  the  Hologram  Ball  to save your game and rest. Now run under the
    waterfall to watch a scene with Quina trying to swim. When it ends, you
    can either do one of two things: Either continue forward up the stairs,
    or  go  right, and speak with the man to fight an optional boss, Hades.
    To  do  this,  simply  press  [X]  while Zidane is not visible, until a
    Mysterious  Voice asks him who disturbs his sleep. If you choose not to
    leave, then you will fight him:
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    HADES
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 92   HP: 55535   Weak against: None     Spoils: Elixer
    AP: 30      Steal: Reflect Ring, Running Shoes, Battle Boots
    
    To  defeat  Hades, simply use Steiner and Vivi to cast the same ability
    (like  Flare  or  Blizzaga  or  Thundaga),  and  use  Steiner  to  cast
    Climhazzard  for  some easy damage. Steal with Zidane, and use Dagger's
    summons to kill Hades in no-time flat.
    
    
    After the fight, head up the stairs, and fight the third Chaos Guardian.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    KRAKEN
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 72   HP: 59496   Weak against: Fire     Spoils: Phoenix Pinon, Ether
    AP: 10      Steal: Genji Helmet, Wizard Robe, Glutton's Robe
    
    Start  off this fight by killing off Kraken's two tenticles right away,
    or  else  they  will attack your party for the entire fight, and surely
    kill  some  of  your  party  members. Use any Fire abilities of Vivi or
    Steiner,  like  Firaga,  Climhazzard,  and  Flare.  Use  Zidane  to use
    Thievery  and  steal,  then use him to attack. Once more, Dagger should
    summon a few times with Bahamut, then heal the others when needed.
    
    
    After  the  fight, continue up the stairs, and to the next screen. Near
    the clock, there is a hidden save point to the northeast, on the ledge.
    Use  it to save and rest, then head to the left and up the stairs. Head
    through  the  door,  and climb up the ladder near the large fireball in
    the  sky.  At the top, search the northwest part of the platform to get
    the Mace of Zeus. Equip this to Vivi, then climb the next ladder. Enter
    the purple doors, and fight the last of the four Chaos Guardians.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    LICH
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 71   HP: 60000   Weak against: Wind, Thunder     Spoils: Phx. Down
    AP: 10      Steal: Genji Gloves, Siren's Flute, Black Robe
    
    Lich  is  the last of the four Chaos Guardians, and is the toughest one
    out  of  them.  He's  weak  against Wind and Thunder, so use Meteor and
    Thundaga  with  Vivi,  and  Shock with Steiner, as well as Climhazzard,
    because  it  does  some  good  damage.  After  enough  attack with your
    characters,  use  Zidane  to cast Thievery, then steal what he can from
    Lich. Eiko's summons (mainly Madeen), are great against Lich.
    
    
    When  the fight ends, go to the left and save your game and rest at the
    save  point,  then  head north, and float off into space. Now just move
    Zidane  to  the  very  top  of the screen while he's in space. Now just
    follow  the  crystal  road  all  the  way  to the end, until you find a
    Hologram  Globe.  Save  your game, rest up, and find the party that you
    want  for  the  final  fights  of  the  game,  then  make sure you have
    Auto-Potion, Auto-Regen, and Auto-Life all equipped to your party. Now,
    when you are ready, enter the doorway, and face the next few bosses.

    DEATHGUISE
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 74   HP: 55535   Weak against: None     Spoils: Wing Edge
    AP: 0       Steal: Elixer, Duel Claws, Black Belt
    
    This  guy has no weaknesses, so it's a hard fight. Start off by tossing
    a  few  Tents onto him so the snake bites him, and his stats will drop,
    then  have  everyone  just plain go buck-wild on his ass. Use Zidane to
    attack  physically,  Steiner  and  Vivi  to  cast things like Thundaga,
    Flare,  Shock, Climhazzard, and others. Have Eiko summon Madeen for the
    entire  fight,  as well as Phoenix if needed. But if you have Auto-Life
    and Auto-Regen, you should almost be invincible.
    
    Before  you  challenge Kuja, return to the last Hologram Globe and save
    one  final  time, then return to Kuja, and fight the last two bosses in
    the game.

    Level: 76   HP: 42382   Weak against: None     Spoils: None
    AP: 0       Steal: Ether, White Robe, Rebirth Ring
    
    I hate this fight. Why? Well, it's hard as hell, his attacks are strong
    as hell, and after you do some damage to him, he uses Curaga, and heals
    his  ass.  >_<  Well, no use whining about it. ;) Anyways, start off by
    using  some  kind  of  a  protection  summon or ability, like Regen, or
    Eiko's  Carbunicle  summon  to protect your entire party for the fight.
    Don't  steal  with  Zidane unless you REALLY want what Kuja has, and he
    doesn't  have  anything  worth  stealing,  and  wasting a turn for. Use
    Zidane  to  attack,  and  have  Steiner  whoop ass with his Climhazzard
    attack,  and  have Vivi use Flare or even Doomsday (NOTE: Only use this
    one if your party has Auto-Regen and Auto-Life, or else you're screwed,
    and  do  it  towards  the end of the fight). Eiko's Madeen summon works
    extremely  well  too. But watch as Kuja performs Ultima, and casts your
    party to another place...

    NECRON
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Level: 69   HP: 54100   Weak against: None     Spoils: None
    AP: 0       Steal: Elixer
    
    ARGH!!!  Wasn't  Trance Kuja enough?!?!?!!? Damn. Well, this fight goes
    without saying, that he is the cheapest, hardest S.O.B in the game, and
    one  of  the  hardest  bosses  to  defeat in a RPG for a long while. As
    always,  use Eiko to summon Carbunicle to protect your party, and don't
    even  try  to steal from Necron with Zidane, unless you are insane. Use
    Steiner  and  Vivi's  magic  attacks  like  Firaga, Blizzaga, Thundaga,
    Flare,  and  Climhazzard.  Vivi's Meteor attack works well too, as does
    Steiner's  Shock attack. Eiko's Madeen Summon should be her only attack
    for  the  whole  fight,  unless you need her to heal your party up with
    Curage or something. His Grand Cross attack will literally kill half of
    your   party,  maybe  even  more.  If  you  don't  have  Auto-Life  and
    Auto-Regen, then you are basically screwed.
    
    
    After  the  intense battle, watch the amazing ending sequence where all
    is revealed!

    By  the  way, after the credits roll, let "The End" appear, then a cool
    mini-game  will  begin  that  you  can  play.  See the "Mini-Games/Side
    Quests" section in the Part II of this FAQ.

    07. Tips & Strategies
    
    •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
    
    • Whenever you are fighting enemies, take a look at what their weakness
      is (example: A Flower-type enemy would be weak against Fire or Flare).
      This is very important, since if you know what the enemy's main weakness
      is, you can properly plan ahead in the fight, and know what kind of attacks
      to use against that enemy.
    
    
    • ALWAYS use the Opposite attack/ability/magic attack that the enemy's
      strength is (i.e., use Fire against Water-based enemies, or just use
      the attacks/abilites that the enemy is weak against).
    
    
    • Try not to use powerful attacks or use more than one party member with
      the same Innate color as the enemy(s). This is because if you are a Red
      Innate color fighting a Red Innate color enemy, you will take more damage,
      as well as give off more damage to that enemy. Although the upside to this
      is that it goes both ways, so your attacks will give off a bit more damage
      to your foe, and they will take more damage than usual.
    
    
    • Save your game whenever possible, no matter what. This is the most basic
      rule for all RPGs, since saving is crucial, especially for a 50+ hour game
      like Final Fantasy IX™. Don't be cocky and try to be "the man" by trying to
      see how far you can get without saving, because something bad will
      happen (i.e., you die in battle, the electricity goes out at your place,
      your little brother/dog/cat/hampster accidentally turns off your
      PlayStation), and you will lose TONS of gameplay and precious game hours,
      and you will go crazy, get pissed off, and break your controller, or do
      something else in a fit of rage. Not good. Not good at all. So remember
      kiddies: Always save your game.
    
    
    • Oh, and save your game at the right spots in the game. For all of you
      out there who do not know how to save your game (don't worry, I forgive
      you), here's how. There are two ways to save your game:
    
      A) Save with a Moogle, which are those little cat-like animals that appear
         at various spots in the game, like Inns, or at key places in
         the game, and mainly before a tough area or a boss fight.
    
      B) Or you can save on the World Map. To do this, just get onto the World
         Map, and press [Square] to call a Moogle, and save your game like
         normal with him. Simple eh?
    
    
    • Choose your fights wisely. You should run into enemies in random battles
      in most areas of the game, and you should fight most of the stronger
      enemies if you want to increase your HP fast, or if you are just plain
      bored. Of course, there are some enemies who you must fight to access
      a chest or a hidden place, or a new area, but these are useful battles.
    
    
    • When in doubt, run away from the battle. 99% of the time you can run
      away from a battle successfully, without losing anything except Gil.
      I suggest doing this only when you are either VERY low on HP, or you
      need to replentish your Magic and/or Armor and Accessories. You should
      do this when necessary and stock up any items that you may need for
      the fight, and to beat the ferocious monster.
    
    
    • Turn on the option that lets you see what world you are in on the World
      Map. Just by seeing what World you are in increases your chances of
      succeeding in the game, and vastly decreases the chance that you will
      get lost or stumped in the game.
    
    
    • Speak to everyone. Hell, speak to everyone twice or three times in fact.
      Why? Simple. Because people give you precious hints for your quest, and
      can also give you Key Items for the game, as well as trigger certain
      events in the game, some of which are crucial to your game advancement.
    
    
    • Search high and low, near and far for any items that you can access. Doing
      this (searching everywhere basically), increases your chance of getting
      that Key Item that you need to recruit a party member, or just a item
      or element that will save you Gil, since instead of having to purchase
      that element or item or armor/accessory/weapon, you can just find it in
      a Chest or under a bed or something.
    
    
    • Synth items, synth items, synth items! Synthing is a wonderful addition
      to the game, and is a welcome feature to Final Fantasy IX™. Synthing weapons
      allows you to choose the specific type of weapon/armor/accessories that
      you want/need for the game, and select how strong your weapon/armor/acc-
      essories are, depending on what item/weapon that you choose to Synth.
    
    
    • Always buy in bulk. Buy your items that you can find in bulk, or
      in other words, buy a lot of them. Buying around 10 items of the
      same kind allows you to use all of them a lot more in battle, which
      makes you all the more powerful against your enemies, especially
      defensively.
    
    
    • Once you find an attack or ability that does some SERIOUS damage to your
      enemy, keep using that attack, then just continue to pound your enemies
      with the effective attacks and elements.
    
    
    • Level up as much as possible early on in the game. Doing this allows
      you and your party to become stronger earlier in the game, and therefore
      making most battles and boss fights a lot easier. Leveling can take a
      lot of time, since as you gain levels from monsters and fights, it takes
      more EXP (experience points) to level up your characters. In the Side-
      Quests/Mini-Games section, I have pointed out a very good place to
      level up quickly, so be sure to read it in that section to learn more
      about how to level up as fast as you can. By the way, if your characters
      are strong throughout the game, you won't have to worry as much about
      your weapons and items, and you can focus more on the smaller things
      about the game, like the Side-Quests, and just having fun, rather than
      making long-winded strategies just for a boss fight.
