    I. INTRODUCTION
    ==========================================================================
    
    Final Fantasy Tactics is one of my favorite games. Being a devout rarities
    collector, I always tried to receive all the hidden and hard-to-get items
    by any means. In doing so I often encountered many confusions and errors
    in various FAQs. That's why I decided to write a guide where you can find
    ALL information about ALL the ways of getting ALL the secret items of FFT.
    
    Another reason for me to write this guide is the release of FF9 that
    caused people to express interest in Square's old classic games like FF5,
    FF6 and possibly FFT.
    
    This is my first attempt to write for the public so don't be too severe
    critics. But definitely BE critics, i.e. whether any questions that are
    unanswered on this guide or comments or critique either positive or
    negative will arise, feel yourself free to e-mail me. My address is
    <elmor_the_elf@mail.ru>, don't forget.
    
    One more note: I'm Russian, and hence my English is far from perfect. So
    I'll be grateful to you if you mail me and point upon some (non-typo)
    errors in this guide. Thanks.
    
                                     * * * 
    
    The game contains an enormous amount of secret equipment. Some of them are
    just useless crap, but some are literally supermegaextrastrong things that
    will surely make you Demi-God. But all of them are RELICS in the full
    meaning of that word: 'hard-to-get items'. Of course, you can easily
    complete the game without them, and it'll be easier than you think since
    you have that fat SOB Orlandu. It means that you may not to get them, and
    definitely you shouldn't try to get them all if you want your game to be
    easier. It is, already.
    
    But still I think that REAL DEVOUT RPG FAN should get ALL the possible
    relics, even if they are completely useless. However this is my personal
    opinion, and by no means I urge you to get'em all.
    
    But if you are 'total perfectionist' just like me, get the full collection
    of 57 (!) rare equips! And may this FAQ be some help in completion of this
    uneasy task.
    
    
    
    ==========================================================================
    II. GENERAL TIPS
    ==========================================================================
    
    There are 6 general methods of getting a rare items here in FFT. These
    ways are: a)trophy; b)gift; c)thievery; d)move-find; e)secret hunt and
    f)catching.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      1. Trophy
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    You receive the relic as a trophy after certain battle. Actually only one
    relic (namely Ragnarok) shall come to you this way. But this method is
    still a method, so...
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      2. Gift
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This method is the easiest from all. Relic is simply brought to you by
    certain character in a certain moment of the game. All that you must do is
    to remove the item from him (her). It is especially important when the
    bringer is going to leave your party.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      3. Thievery
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Being the well developed RPG, FFT contains its 'walking treasure chests'.
    Of course, it's very mean to strip someone of all his equip and then
    mercilessly kill him/her, but... That's the way of True Hunter!!! So if
    you see an enemy swinging sword big and scary or shooting to you fire
    bullets, help him to get rid of such a precious thing. He won't need it
    anymore: his death is at hand, and dead men do not need treasures.
    
    This can be fairly tough in certain battles, but the main idea is simple:
    equip someone with Thief's 'Steal' ability. Make sure that appropriate
    stealing skill is learned (e.g., if you want to steal Blood Sword, you
    must have 'Steal Weapon' learned). Then go steal :) !!
    
    Tips on practical stealing:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    * Steal from the back.
    
    * Have your thief's Speed raised (Ramza's Yell makes great help here)
      or set him one of the following Support Abilities:
    
           Attack Up
           Concentrate
           Martial Arts
    
    * Decrease victim's Speed (Speed Break) or have them under one of the
      following status ailments:
    
           Charging
           Chicken
           Frog
           Sleep
           Slow
           Stop
    
    * My version of Perfect Thief:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
         [female monk]
    
    Primary  : Punch Art               Right Hand: -
    Secondary: Steal                   Left Hand : -
    Reaction : Speed Save              Helmet    : Thief Hat
    Support  : Attack Up               Armor     : Secret Clothes
    Movement : Move+2                  Accessory : Chantage
    
    I choose Monk since Monks have 'Martial Arts' as inherited ability. You
    can use Ninja instead, though. Their Speed is high, so your chances will
    be higher, too. Speed Save allows your thief to speed up when she gets
    hurt, and Chantage makes this hasting endless (keep in mind that she can't
    die with that nifty little thing!) You can also substitute Attack Up with
    Concentrate.
    
    Ah, one last moment. If the victim has 'Maintenance' set up, don't even
    think to try to steal something from this person. Your chances will be 0.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      4. Move-Find
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Almost all battlefields contain hidden items. Most of these items are just
    usual crap that you can buy in stores, but in some places you can find
    VERY GOOD pieces of equipment.
    
    The main idea is simple, too. You set 'Move-Find Item' as a Movement
    Ability and finish your move on the certain tile. After you answer 'Yes'
    to the usual 'Are you sure you want to move here?' question, you will hear
    'Brrrring', your item finder will raise received treasure high in the air,
    and 'Found '[name of treasure]'!' message box will appear.
    
    Note that enemies can collect treasures, too. In that case you lose the
    treasure and message box with name of the treasure does not appear.
    
    If a character WITHOUT 'Move-Find Item' ability will finish his move on
    treasure tile or if treasure is already taken, a trap will spring then.
    There are 4 kind of traps: Steel Needle (HP damage), Sleeping Gas (Sleep
    status ailment), Degenerator (Level -1) and Death Trap (Death Sentence).
    
    In most cases there are 2 items buried in one location. If so, which one
    you shall most probably find is determined by your brave. As a rule, the
    probability of finding a BETTER item is (100-Brave)%. It is especially
    important in Deep Dungeon, where common worst item for all treasure
    locations is Phoenix Down. As you can see, for you to get some good stuff
    your item-finder must be a coward :)
    
    Speaking of cowards...
    
    * My version of Perfect Item-Finder:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
         Rafa, Heaven Knight
    
    Primary  : Truth                   Right Hand:
    Secondary:                         Left Hand :
    Reaction :                         Helmet    : Thief Hat
    Support  :                         Armor     : Secret Clothes
    Movement : Move-Find Item          Accessory : Germinas Boots
    
    Rafa has the lowest Brave in all game, so she's naturally the best unit
    to find those treasures. To make your chances of getting the best items
    even higher, lower her Brave even more with Beowulf's 'Chicken' or
    Oracle's 'Foxbird Song'. The lowest point is, I believe, 10. (I mean the
    permanent value, of course. Not in-battle one.) If her Brave is lower than
    10, she will turn to Chicken with the beginning of the battle. So the
    value of 10 is IMHO optimal.
    
    The above combo is a good one, believe me. Rafa is not only fast, she's
    invisible and movable enough (Germinas Boots). You can sneak anywhere you
    want... Just walk where you like and do nothing. You won't be hit.
    
    The alternative variant is to make her Knight and give her Excalibur. In
    this case she gets permanent Haste, but loses her invulnerability.
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      5. Secret Hunt
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    'Secret Hunt', or 'Poaching', is the method of getting rare items by
    killing certain monsters and bringing their 'mortal remains' :) to special
    stores called 'Fur Shops'. These stores are situated in all three Trade
    Cities of Ivalice: Warjilis, Zarghidas and Dorter. They open up only in
    Chapter II (but here I am not sure). These stores make items out of fur
    that you brought. Some of these items are sold in usual stores; in Fur
    Shops their price is lower (50% discount, I believe). The significant part
    of items that can be purchased in Fur Shops is rare meaning Fur Shop is
    the only way to buy them.
    
    The process of poaching itself is very simple: set Thief's 'Secret Hunt'
    Support ability. Kill victim monster with usual physical attack. ('Kill'
    means 'deliver the final blow'; you can soften the monster with whatever
    you like.)
    
    It is possible to apply the 'Rekill Technique', i.e. to kill the monster
    with powerful non-poach move (Sword Skills are the best here), then revive
    it using Phoenix Down so that its HP is very low and kill it once again
    using poacher's physical attack. This method is quite simple, but...
    definitely not the one a pro would use. However if you have accidentally
    killed a precious monster, it's not bad.
    
    Note that victim monster may be in your team as well as in enemy one.
    Poached monsters does not count in 'Injuries' part of 'Brave Story'
    submenu. In other words, you may poach tons of your own monsters and still
    the number of units that you lost in battles will be 0.
    
    When you have successfully poached the desirable monster, go to the Fur
    Shop. There you should be able to buy the item that they made from fur
    of monster.
    
    There are two possible items for every monster to be transformed to.
    You'll get one of them with the probability of ~90% (this item is called
    Common for that monster), and  the probability of the other outcome is
    somewhat 10% (obviously, this one is Rare).
    
    There are no methods to get Rare item for sure, but I can recommend you
    the following technique. Poach the monster you want to get Rare from.
    Go to nearest Trade City. Save your game and ONLY AFTER THAT visit Fur
    Shop. If there's no wanted item there, reset and go to Fur Shop again.
    Within 10-15 tries you'll most likely get the item.
    
    Of course, you'll get crappy items from junky monsters. Don't expect
    Chocobo to yield something powerful like Elixir or Chaos Blade. In order
    to get the Ultimate Relics (like FS Bag :) you should find and poach some
    really rare monsters. There are two ways of getting the latter: a)find or
    or b) breed them.
    
    a) The first way is pretty easy. There are certain locations where you can
    encounter rare monsters in random battles. All you must do is to form a
    strong poaching team, save game and make a couple of tries to engage a
    random battle. Occasionally you'll meet a desirable enemy party containing
    monsters that you need and hunt'em down.
    
    b) What's breeding? Well, it's breeding (simple, huh? :). If a monster
    stays in your team long enough, it will lay an egg. In a couple of days
    the egg cracks, and instead of it new monster appears.
    
    There are chances that the newborn monster will be an 'upgrade' of its
    parent (i.e. e.g. you'll get Black Chocobo from the egg layed by usual
    Chocobo), but it can be a 'downgrade' as well.
    
    The very first parent monster must be brought to team by means of
    Mediator's 'Invitation' ability. Just find the monster you want to be in
    your team and use that ability on it. To raise your chances of succesful
    inviting, raise your inviter's MA (Magic AttackUP _doesn't_ work here
    according to FFT Battle Mechanics Handbook.)
    
    The exact mechanics of breeding is still unclear, but the following facts
    seem to be true:
    
    * The activity of breeding is higher in spring and summertime.
    
    * If there are two monsters of one 'class' in your team, their chances to
      lay an egg are higher. Also in this case the probability of getting
      advanced monster from an egg is affected by parents' Zodiac sign
      compatibility.
    
    * The level of parent(s) also affects chances of getting an advanced
      offspring.
    
    Tips on practical breeding:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    * Free as much space in your team as possible. Down with Meliadoul, Malak
      and Boco! (I dismissed'em all... I even kicked out Agrias - after you
      get Orlandu she becomes pretty much weak.) If you already done with Deep
      Dungeon and Nelveska Temple, dismiss Rafa.
    
    * Make sure your parent monsters are the best you can get. If you have
      several monsters of one 'class' in your team, arrange it so that
      'parents' would be together.
    
    * Choose a route between 2 or 3 cities where there are no spots for random
      battles (Warjilis-Deep Dungeon route and route between Goug and two
      cities to the north of it are fine) and run to and fro checking you
      formation screen every several days.
    
    * Don't hesitate to kick out low-rank monsters. Not only they clog your
      party, moreover, they spawn like rabbits! So if you do not want you team
      to consist mostly of weak junior monsters (e.g. if you're trying to
      breed Plague, you'll literally sink in Flotiballs and Ahrimans),
      dismiss'em without any regret.
    
    * When you've got several senior monsters in your team and you're going to
      poach all of them except for one that stays alive for breeding purpose,
      keep the one with highest level.
    
    Of course, you can combine both methods of getting rare fur by engaging
    the battle against desirable monsters and at the same time having them in
    your team. In that case the battle will be hard...
    
    The problems with such 'Double Hunt' is that quite often your monsters are
    pretty weak (meaning low HP because of low level of the beast or because
    of its nature - you won't expect your Porky to have MaxHP of 999, will
    you?). An enemy unit could smack it down with single blow. Moreover,
    that's what it'll do: AI always hunts down the weakest. As you can see,
    you must QUICKLY poach all your monsters (before enemies lay their claws
    upon them) and be ready to survive enemy attack and poach them all, too.
    It is not so easy as it may seem from the first glance, though. Quite
    often you have to run around throwing Phoenix Downs to your killed beasts
    helplessly watching them to turn to crystals 'cause you are too late...
    
    To avoid this sad fate, use the following trick. This technique is my
    invention and it is called Auto-Poach (R).
    
    So,
    
    * My version of Perfect Hunter:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
         Orlandu, Holy Swordsman (with maxed out Brave)
    
    Primary  : All Swordskill          Right Hand: Chaos Blade
    Secondary: Item                    Left Hand : Escutcheon II
    Reaction : Counter                 Helmet    : Twist Headband
    Support  : Secret Hunt             Armor     : Power Sleeve
    Movement : Move+2                  Accessory : Bracer
    
    The trick is simple: imagine a monster trying to attack that powerhouse.
    As a rule, it misses (Escutcheon II). Again as a rule, Orlandu counters
    (high Brave helps here). Moreover, this counter will most likely kill the
    assailant monster (behold: Twist Headband - PA+2, Power Sleeve - PA+2,
    Bracer - PA+3, Chaos Blade - WA 40... Any questions? *evilgrin*). Since
    Counter is still a usual physical attack, monster will be poached.
    
    See? Monster actually poaches itself, since the beginning of combo is but
    its physical attack. That means that you can poach a monster without even
    wasting a turn!!!
    
    The above combo is still for people who live dangerously. So if you are
    careful and patient, equip Grand Helmet instead of Twist Headband and
    Maximillian instead of Power Sleeve. With these, your chances to be killed
    with a stray blow that somehow went through Escutcheon II will be
    considerably less.
    
    
    Evaluation:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    
      PROS:
    
    * You can poach your animals as well as the enemy ones fast and safe. Just
      let your beasts attack Orlandu and watch them being poached in a
      twinkling of an eye.
    
    * With that combo Orly is powerful enough to encounter strong enemy team
      alone, without any help. Your party can consist of 4 monsters and
      Orlandu - and still you'll win even the hardest battle against enormous
      pile of Hydras, Dragons and Behemoths. Don't forget that he still has
      his All Swordskill! You know what that means... :)
    
    * If an enemy attack does punch through your shield, you still have your
      Night Sword skill to refill your HP, don't you?
    
    * After all it's very fun to see that 'poaching conveyer' at work. Bite -
      miss - slash - die - disappear - next, please! That's the way it goes!
    
    
      CONS:
    
    * Orlandu stays vulnerable for many status ailments... A single successful
      Death Sentence will most definitely end your 'Royal Hunt'. So be
      careful. If you plan to fight enemies that like to infect you with some
      nasty status changes (Vampires, Plagues, Mindflares, Porkys), equip
      Angel Ring or something in that way instead of Bracer or use Agrias with
      Ribbon equipped.
    
    * It is hard to believe, but some monsters DOES NOT have a physical
      attack (Tiamat). You'll have to poach them 'manually' :(
    
    * You still have a chance to petrify unlucky enemies... if they survive a
      hit from Chaos Blade. That's why Orlandu's secondary is 'Item' in this
      combo. You'll be able to de-petrify the victim. Have some Softs/Remedys
      in stock in case the victim monster will be soooooooo unlucky.
    
    * There is a couple of battles where it's nearly impossible to poach
      (yours and enemy) monsters and survive even if you do use Auto-Poach
      technique. I mean some Super Monster Battles (END, VOYAGE, Bariaus Hill)
      where you encounter TONS of extrastrong monsters (all species of
      Behemoths, Hydras, Dragons). They can easily slaughter you even if you
      have 5 very strong units, not to mention the case when your team is 80%
      weak pigs. So be wise. Even Orlandu can't stand aginst 10 overweighted
      tanks alone.
    
    
    Well actually the above combo is kinda 'Poacher to the Extreme', meaning
    that such a unit can easily poach your zoo and finish the battle (well...
    most of battles) alone. The main idea of this idea is that Counter is
    Poacher's best friend. So if you form strong poaching team in order to
    engage one of above-mentioned 'Super Monster Battles', set 'Counter' to
    as many poachers as you can. E.g. quite well combo is Ninja - Secret Hunt
    - Counter - two Iga Knives - Feather Mantle. Feather Mantle plays the role
    of Escutcheon II. To lower your chances to be killed, set 'Move - HP Up'.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      6. Catching
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Since story battle in Yardow Fort City you know simple truth: 'Ninjas
    Throw Weapons', right? Well I'm gonna tell you more: high (90+) level
    ninjas throw VERY GOOD weapons. What a particular Ninja shall throw to you
    are affected by two factors: a) his (her) level and b) Throw skills that
    he (she) have learned.
    
    The level determines the power of the thrown weapon; the higher is
    thrower's Level, the stronger are the thrown weapons.
    
    Note that along with weapons Ninjas can (and WILL) throw to you Shurikens
    and Balls. Your units shall catch them as well as weapons, so soon your
    stock will be overflown with Yagyu Darkness', etc.
    
    I suspect that particular Ninja throws the weapons of some particular
    type, i.e. if a Ninja throws to you Chaos Blades, he won't toss any other
    types of weapons. [?]
    
    Note that you can easily manipulate the Ninja's Level by means of
    Mindflare's Level Blast ability. This ability lowers the enemy Exp Level
    by 1. Just breed or invite a Mindflare, take him to the battle and let him
    stand just near unit with 'Monster Skill' ability.
    
    To catch thrown Item, just equip Thief's 'Catch' Reaction Ability. Note
    that your chances to catch items are seriously affected with Brave, so try
    to raise it.
    
    One more tip: DO NOT equip your catchers with shields. You don't want your
    precious Madlemgen to get stuck in shield, do you?
    
    To get some cool items using Catch all you have to do is find an
    appropriate battlefield where you can frequently meet Ninjas. The only two
    places where you can meet Ninjas late in the game are Araguay Woods and
    HORROR of Deep Dungeon. I recommend you the latter since it is very
    convenient for catching.
    
    On that battlefield, you start on one of something like big pillars. You
    can stand of the edge of that pillar or of the other ones thus disabling
    enemies to walk up and attack you. All they'll be able to do is throw
    weapons.
    
    The only enemy party that you can meet on that battlefield that contains
    Ninjas is a company of 8 people all Ninjas and Samurais. Kill the latter
    ones - they are really annoying casting Masamune (they have it in stock!
    Bastards!! :), throwing stones...
    
    
    
    
    ==========================================================================
    II.  LIST OF RELICS
    ==========================================================================
    
    Here are all the rare items of FFT listed in alphabetical order. I
    included the methods of getting as well as my evaluation for every entry.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      a. Abbreviations used in this section:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
            [?] - means that I'm uncertain of the written either because of
                  forgetfulness or because I haven't checked it. Feel free to
                  send me corrections (my e-mail is <elmor_the_elf@mail.ru>)
                  about it.
    
    <too late!> - means that this possibility of getting rare item is given to
                  you only in the last series of battles so you won't have
                  further chance to exit to the map or engage some random
                  battles. So if you try to get relic by this way at least to
                  see what it is, save in a different slot or you'll regret.
    
       * TROPHY - After which battle you'll get this relic.
    
       * BRING: - Who and when brings to you this piece of equip. I mentioned
                  also when you should de-equip the relic from the wearer if
                  the latter is going to leave your party.
    
       * STEAL: - Who and where has that relic for you to steal it.
    
       * FIND : - Where can you find that relic by means of 'Move-Find Item'
                  ability: battlefield, coordinates.
    
       * POACH: - Monster that you should poach in order to get relic. I
                  pointed also whether the relic is 'Common' or 'Rare'
                  outcome of this monster. (See part II-5 for more info.)
    
       * CATCH: - Range or exact value of thrower's Exp level. If his (her)
                  level is equal to given value or fits given range, the Ninja
                  MAY throw that rare weapon to you. If the Ninja still
                  doesn't throw to you the desired weapon then obviously he
                  hasn't required skill learned.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     b. Coordinate origins:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    There are many different FAQs that deal with locations of DD treasures.
    The (x,y) coordinates of treasures are different in all these FAQs due to
    authors choosing different corners of battlefield as the coordinates
    origin, different directions of axes and different coordinates of corner
    tiles: (0,0) or (1,1).
    
    I do not wish to increase that horrible chaos. I decided to support
    Gastrifitis' "FFT Deep Dungeon Exits Guide" Version 1.0. You can get it at
    www.gamefaqs.com. Aside from treasure coordinates, this guide also
    contains fine maps for every DD battlefield. Use it if you're stuck in DD.
    
    All Deep Dungeon treasure coordinates are taken from this FAQ. The credit
    for them goes to Gastrifitis (bm92@juno.com).
    
    
    Grid origins for every battlefield will be pointed in the following manner:
    
    1) For every battlefield a specific place is pointed.
    
    2) You should rotate the battlefield until the STARTING POINT of your team
    will be in the above specified part of the battlefield.
    
    3) Then, the grid's origin will be the LOWER LEFT corner of the battlefield.
    
    4) X axis is the direction to the right from the origin; Y axis is the
    direction up from it. The corner tile has (0,0) coordinates.
    
    The coordinates for every treasure are given in the following manner:
    
     (x,y) h[tile height]
    
    
     1.NOGIAS

     7.BRIDGE
    Upper right corner.

    being lesser then the left: 'L L'.
    
    
    10.END

    letter 'O' without the upper right quarter:

      the game it can be a great help for you.
    
    
    * BRING: Alma, before Battle 22 (Back Gate of Lesalia Castle). De-equip
             her of it after this battle - before Battle 24 (Underground Book

    Gun that shoots lightning elemental bullets.
    
    Attack power: 22
    Evade: 5%
    Lightning elemental
    
    * Strongest elemental gun. Not bad (especially against those damned
      Mindflares), but I prefer usual guns.
    
    
    * STEAL: <Chemist> or <Mediator>, Germinas Peak, random battle. Enter
             battlefield from North to occasionally meet a company of 5
             Chemists/Mediators. They are equipped with different Guns; 'tis
             possible but not mandatory that one of them shall have Blast Gun.
    
             Balk the Engineer, Battle 51 (Lost Sacred Precincts). <too late!>

    Gun that shoots ice elemental bullets.
    
    Attack power: 20
    Evade: 5%
    Ice elemental

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sword with magenta blade. Bloody looking blade symbolizes its gruesome
    effects.
    
    Attack power: 8
    Evade: 5%
    
    * Sword that drains HP. Good early in the game (if you cared to de-equip
      it from Gaffy), but becomes a real crap later.
    
    
    * BRING: Gafgarion the Dark Knight, before Battle 10 (Dorter Trade City).
             De-equip him of it before Battle 12 (Zirekile Falls) - in this

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Perfume with a peaceful scent.
    
    Always: Reraise, Regen
    
    * One of the most useful things in the game. Reraise never wears off, so
      you get an immortal woman. Set Speed Save - and she'll speed up
      endlessly; equip A Save - and here is an amason that can kill an
      overgrown Tiamat with a single punch. Definitely a must get item.

    Evade: 20%
    Always: Regen
    Add: Petrify
    
    * Highest weapon power in all game? Automatic Regen on wielder? Random
      Petrify on enemies? Pshaw, my table-knife is better. At least it is not
      so ludicrously overpowered :). Got my humor? GO GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!
    
    
    * FIND : END (Battle 10 of Deep Dungeon), (7,10) h15.
    
    * CATCH: 98-99
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
      8. Cherche
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Perfume with a refreshing scent.
    
    Always: Float, Reflect
    
    * Huh? Never used this one. By it's name you may conclude that it is
      designed for item finders ('cherche' is the French for 'search'), but
      there are better things to equip. For devoted collectors only.
    
    
    * POACH: King Behemoth (Common)

    Attack power: 25
    Evade: 15%

    * CATCH: 97-99

    Metal ring with vengeful spirit inside.
    
    Physical attack +1
    Magic +1
    Speed + 1
    Always: Undead
    Cancel: Invitation
    
    * Remember that guy from Mideel in FF7? Well, his gift has come to you
      through the eras. Cancel Invitation is kinda useless since I have never
      seen enemies using it on my troops. The only useful thing is the
      probability to feel yourself a kind of hellraiser...
    
    
    * FIND : TIGER (Battle 6 of Deep Dungeon), (9,8) h5.
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Wide steel Knight sword.  Rounded tip on the grip has a gem inside.
    
    Attack power: 16

    Rod carried by one attended by dragons.  Tip made of dragon bones.
    
    Attack power: 5
    Evade: 20%
    
    * If your Wizard prefers to bops enemies on the head with his rod, then
      it's a good thing. Otherwise it's just a fine paperweight.
    
    
    * STEAL: <Summoner>, Battle 45 (St. Murond Temple)
    
             Kletian the Sorcerer, Battle 46 (Hall of St. Murond Temple)
    
    * POACH: Blue Dragon (Rare)
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Spear made of a mysterious material neither wood nor metal.  Said to be
    dragon whiskers.
    
    Attack power: 17

    Ultimate shield with matchless Evade % .
    
    Physical 75%
    Magic 50%
    
    * The best shield in the game. A must have if you think about Auto Poach.
      If you don't, then... must have, too :)
    
    
    * FIND : Nelveska Temple, (6,7) h? (the left pillar). Use any massive
             monster (Dragon, Hydra, Morbol) as a stepstone to get there.
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     15. Excalibur
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Legendary Knight sword.  Sword of the real king.
    
    Attack power: 21
    Evade: 35%
    Always: Haste
    Absorb: Holy
    Strengthen: Holy
    
    * This Knight Sword is created to dwell in Orlandu's hand. With Excalibur
      he becomes hell on wheels... FAST hell on wheels.
    
    
    * BRING: Orlandu, after Battle 38 (Floodgates of Bethla Garrison).
    
    * FIND : MLAPAN (Battle 5 of Deep Dungeon), (2,8) h12.

    Stringed instrument entrances enemy with its pure sound.

    Rod that fill those who touch it with faith.
    
    Attack power: 5
    Evade: 20%
    Always: Faith
    Add: Faith
    
    * Best Rod. Good if your Wizard has Math Skill as secondary. Then with it
      he's just a killer.
    
    
    * FIND : VALKYRIES (Battle 4 of Deep Dungeon), (11,8) h4.
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     18. FS Bag
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Custom-made bag for battle.
    
    Attack power: 20
    
    * Relic of relics, the most hard-to-get item in the whole game and, as you
      can guess, absolutely useless piece of equipment.
    
    
    * POACH: Wildbow (Rare)
    
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     19. Genji Armor
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Black foreign armor.  Firmly protects the abdomen.
    
    HP+ 150

    Crimson foreign gauntlet.
    
    Physical attack +2

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     21. Genji Helmet
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Black foreign helmet.  Made of steel with a unique shape.

    Black foreign-made shield.  Made of steel with a unique shape.

    ==========================================================================
    IV. STEAL/FIND STRATEGIES
    ==========================================================================
     As I mentioned above, it is very hard or even impossible to steal
    something in certain battles (e.g., Roof of Riovanes Castle :). I heard
    many people whining about "impossibility" of stealing something from
    Elmdor in Limberry Castle. This is ridiculous, of course. You can steal
    ANYTHING from ANYONE, if you're patient enough. You can make it easier if
    you use some tricks.
    
     Wanna know how? Here are some steal strategies for a couple of battles.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     1. Golgorand Execution Site
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     OK. I admit. It's hard. Moreover, it's useless if you have taken the
    Blood Sword from Gaffy before Zirekile Falls battle. It's even more
    useless if you are going to poach monsters - most likely you'll be
    knee-deep in Blood Swords trying to get a Scorpion Tail.
    
     But if you are die-hard you may try to do it. It's possible. Moreover, I
    stole Blood Sword from the third try. I do not remember my strategy well,
    but try to get all your team except the thief to the top of the gate. If
    the thief dies, throw to him Phoenix Down (you'll have pretty good
    throwing range standing there). When you'll eventually steal it, make
    thief climb upstairs, to the rest of your team.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     2. Roof of Riovanes Castle
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Well, this is one of the hardest battles in the whole game. Not because
    the enemy forces are strong. Not because they have quite powerful
    Draw-outs and 100% succesful Death and Stop spells. All this is avoidable
    and makes no threat to you.
    
     The sole reason of battle's difficulty is the nefarious behavior of the
    person which is intended to be protected in this battle - Rafa. Instead of
    running away from Elmdor and his two, hum hum, girls :) she courageously
    (with her low Brave?! Ha!!!) climbs up the roof. Maybe, she wants to whack
    Elmdor with her Octagon Rod? It is good, o'course, but no less it's fool.
    To make matters worse, she makes the first move, so if you see Rafa coming
    up, reset. There's nothing you'll be able to do. Muramasa - Shadow Stitch
    - attack with two Ninja Swords - Game Over.
    
     Thus, this battle hardly can be the source of Barette and Cachusha since
    Rafa is not only weak, but also is a complete ignoramus (she's possessed
    with AI... poor girl :). She can ruin the game in a minute. But again if
    you are headbanger collectioner...
    
     I haven't any tips for you right now, but next FFT play I'll try to steal
    these items so watch for the next version of this guide.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     3. Bervenia Free City
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     This one is easy (relatively). Set Maintenance to all your units that
    have it learned. It is also a good idea to have Ignore Height equipped
    since the battlefield has many high and sharp drops. Make Ramza Ninja and
    equip him something that raises PA (I believe the shops have Power Sleeve
    and/or Twisted Headband at that moment of the game). The most difficult
    part of that battle is to kill all the evil females (2Su, 2Ar, Nj) fast
    and safe. When you've done it, go steal items. Begin with Defender -
    without it Meliadoul won't be able to use Mighty Sword and damage caused
    by her attacks will be considerably lesser. Don't forget to steal Chantage
    - it will be great help for you, and you won't have a chance to get it for
    a long time.
    
     I guess Mel is vulnerable to Sleep, so you can use it to your advantage.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     4. Bed Desert
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Equip everyone with Defense Armlets since Balk likes to use Arm Aim and
    Leg Aim being an Engineer. Also don't forget to have some Antidots or
    Remedies at hand - in the beginning of the battle all your party will be
    Poisoned. It's also a good idea to have Monk in your team...
    
     Let all your strong units slay Knights and Archers, and Thief try to
    steal Blaze Gun. It won't take much time to finally lay yer hands on the
    first magical Gun in the game.
    
     Try to equip as many of your people as you can with Ice Shields - it will

     5. Inside of Limberry Castle
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Ahhhh, at last. This is one of my favourite battles in the whole game.
    Not only because I have to fight my favourite FFT villain (did you think
    my nickname is just a coincidence?), but he carries along a marvellous set
    of _VERY POWERFUL_ equipment.
    
     So if this fact has avoided you somehow, behold!
    
    Right Hand: Masamune
    Left Hand : Genji Shield
    Helmet    : Genji Helmet
    Armor     : Genji Armor
    Accessory : Genji Gauntlet
    
    Not bad for a Lucavi-possessed weird looking samurai-like Arc Knight, huh?
    But believe me he won't give you his equip so easy. He has a couple of
    powerful abilities and immunities to defend his precious armour.
    
    1) Elmdor is immune to Don't Move, Don't Act and Sleep (doh!), but he can
    be Slow'ed very easily. Even Slow has 97% hit rate with Slow2 having the
    one of 100%.
    
    2) He has Blade Grasp equipped. This Reaction Ability greatly lowers your
    chance to hit Elmdor (this chance becomes multiplied by (1-(Brave/100))
    according to FFT Battle Mechanics Handbook v 2.56). I believe it may also
    affect Steal success percentage [?].
    
     Obviously, you should lower Elmdor's Brave in order to raise the above
    multiplier. This is done best with Chicken of Beowulf's Magic Sword.
    
    3) Elmdor also has Teleport2 movement ability, so he can surf the
    battlefield freely. It is really annoying to chase him all over the
    board, so you'd really better slow him down.
    
    4) His favourite Draw Out, Muramasa, has nasty added effect of Confusion
    and Death Sentence. This is really annoying... Can you imagine what can
    confused Orlandu do? ::shudder::
    
    5) His secondary Job Command, Blood Suck, has the same named ability
    that transfers some (~120) HP from target to caster and at the same time
    infects target with Blood Suck status. Blood Suck'ed unit is
    uncontrollable; all that he/she does is running around Blood Suck'ing
    other units. This is really annoying. Equip everyone with 108 Gems to
    avoid it.
     
    
    But still I advise you to steal all Elmdor's equip. It is not so hard as
    it may seem if you use a couple of tricks. Here is my version of Perfect
    Elmdor-robbing Team:
    
    1. Female Ninja
    
    Primary  : Throw                   Right Hand:
    Secondary: Steal                   Left Hand :
    Reaction : Speed Save              Helmet    : Barrette
    Support  : Concentrate             Armor     :
    Movement : Move+2                  Accessory : Chantage
    
    * This cutie is for stealing. Wasn't that obvious?
    
    
    2. Orlandu, Holy Swordsman
    
    Primary  : All Swordskill          Right Hand: Excalibur
    Secondary: Item                    Left Hand : Crystal Shield
    Reaction : Auto Potion             Helmet    : Crystal Helmet
    Support  : Throw Item              Armor     : Crystal Armor
    Movement : Move+2                  Accessory : 108 Gems
    
    * [no comments] :)
    
    3. Ramza, Knight
    
    Primary  : Battle Skill            Right Hand: Excalibur
    Secondary: Guts                    Left Hand : Defender
    Reaction : Auto Potion             Helmet    :
    Support  : Two Swords              Armor     :
    Movement : Move+2                  Accessory : 108 Gems
    
    * Basically a Speed Manipulator. Increase with Yell - decrease with Speed
      Break. Get double chance due to Two Swords.
    
    4. Beowulf, Temple Knight
    
    Primary  : Magic Sword             Right Hand: Excalibur
    Secondary: Item                    Left Hand :
    Reaction : Auto Potion             Helmet    :
    Support  : Throw Item              Armor     :
    Movement : Move+2                  Accessory : 108 Gems
    
    * A scarecrow. Booooooo!!!!!!!!! :)
    
    
    5. Samurai
    
    Primary  : Draw Out                Right Hand:
    Secondary: Time Magic              Left Hand :
    Reaction : Auto Potion             Helmet    :
    Support  :                         Armor     :
    Movement : Move+2                  Accessory : 108 Gems
    
    * Slow, haste and healing "in a single flask". Of course, Murasame's
      healing is weaker than Muramasa's damage, but if your units are clumped
      together, it's quite good. Use chemist instead of Samurai if you want.
    
    
    Well, that's it. Here is my well-balanced Robbing team. And here is the
    tactics:
    
    1) Quickly kill both assassins (Orlandu in the first row of the team -
    advance to the max - Lightning Stab - the girls are dead). After death
    they'll turn into Ultima Demons, but the latters are IMHO less dangerous
    than Assassins.
    
    2) Finish Ultima Demons while they charge their Dark Holy and Hurricane.
    
    3) Start steal and keep stealing until you strip Elmdor fully. Some people
    advice to steal shield first: it raises the success of further stealing.
    Well, it is true if you steal from the front or from the side. If you
    steal from the back, only P.AEV (accessory physical evade) affects
    success of theft. So if you're sure that Elmdor's back will be accessible,
    steal stuff in any order.
    
    4) Pierce Elmdor's defence with Chicken. Repeat until his Brave will be
    below 10. Have you expected him to turn into broiler? Mwa-ha-ha!!! Arc
    Knights DON'T CACKLE!!! :)
    
    5) Speed Break and Mind Break him until his Speed and MA will have the
    value of 1.
    
    6) Slow him down.
    
    7) Put Haste on your thief.
    
    8) Keep Yelling on your thief (anyway you've got nothing else to do - the
    Ultima Demons are dead, Elmdor gets a turn after you make 5-6).
    
    9) When you've stolen all Elmdor's stuff, don't forget to kill him! :)
    
    
    And when "Ugh... You're strong..." announces your mean victory, say
    something!!! You have just performed the most difficult (and most fruitful)
    theft of the game! Congratulations!!! Now you can feel yourself a real
    Ronin by equipping all Genji stuff on one character.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     6. St.Murond Temple
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     "Yeah, piece o'cake!" :) Even if that poor Summoner is healthy like a
    bull, your chances to steal Dragon Rod from him are higher than 50%! Why?
    Who cares!!! Go steal! :)
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     7. Colliery Underground Second Floor
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     A pushover, too. Your chances to steal Blaze Gun are about 30%, so it's
    very easy. Note that sometimes that damned Chemist may have Maintenance
    equipped. He has it not very often (actually I saw him Maintenanc'ed only
    once), but if he does, reset the game.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     8. Nelveska Temple
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
     This one's tough. The problem is that you have to defeat a bunch of
    strong monsters before you can lay your arms upon local treasures (there
    are 4 of them, and all four are not-so-easy to get!)
    
     Here are some tips for ya:
    
     1) Since there are 3 Cocatoris' among your enemies, you may consider to
    equip your people with Jade Armlets.
    
     2) Equip Orlandu with strongest Weapons/Armor you can get. Advance him
    forward and let him be a damage magnet. If you'll be able to make Hyudras
    attack him, set him Counter.
    
     3) To climb up those pillars you need not only high Jump Value, but also
    a so-called 'Stepping Stone'. This is but any huge bulky monster (any of
    Hydra, Dragon, Morbol species or Steel Worker 8 are fine) that stands
    right next to the pillar, thus enabling you to use it as a platform for
    further jump. I recommend you to use Worker 8. He has pretty decent
    long-range attack and in the same time immunity to Petrify (I guess). Have
    Chemist in your team to heal him up with Potions.
    
     4) Again, your chances to find a BETTER equipment (Javelin II not
    Javelin) seem to be (100-Brave)%, so use Rafa for this mission.
    
     5) Since monsters are _VERY_ powerful and Rafa is more than weak, you may
    want to engage the Nelveska Temple battle only after you get Secret
    Clothes in TIGER of Deep Dungeon. This is extremely important since if
    Rafa is invisible, the big bad animals :) won't hurt her. An alternative
    way to Transparency is to equip her with Vanish Mantle, but in this case
    you may not be able to climb the pillar even with the help of monsters due
    to Rafa's low Jump value.
    
     6) The strategy itself is very simple:
    
    - quickly kill Cocatoris' and Hyudras before they tear you a new a$$ :).
    
    - Start Speed and Power Breaking Worker 7*New; repeat it until his Speed
    and PA will have the value of 1 (to do it fast, set Battle Skill to
    Orlandu as a secondary and Two Swords as a support ability).
    
    - Begin your treasure hunting tour :). Note that you can distinguish
    Javelin from Javelin II (as well as Escutcheon from Escutcheon II) only by
    their appearance; if you'll see Rafa picking up that old thin rusty spear
    with tiny blade, reset the game.
    
    - After you get all you want and kill Worker 7*New he shall turn on his
    second reactor and resurrect having only 1 HP though. Stone him - do not
    defile thy blade by touching this oil-tarnished overgrown alarm-clock! :)
    
     7) Keep in mind that the only thing that you _MUST_ get in this battle is
    Escutcheon II, since you can get this shield only, I repeat, _ONLY_ in
    this battle. The other 3 pieces of equip are poachable/catchable.

    Here is the list of all battles of FFT. Deep Dungeon and Cloud Subquest
    battles are separated from the story ones. Absence of empty lines between
    names of battles means that these battles come "in group", i.e. you won't
    be able to take an exit to the map between these battles. You'll only be
    given a prompt to save and reform your team.

      1. Wanted List
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    As you have probably noticed, there is a plenty of question marks in this
    FAQ. Here's the incomplete list of missing info (If you can be of any help
    with it, please e-mail me <elmor_the_elf@mail.ru>)
    
     1. The exact coordinates (x,y,height) of:
    
        -Blood Sword (Inside of Igros Castle)
        -Materia Blade (Bervenia Volcano)
        -Vanish Mantle (Germinas Peak)
        -Javelin II, Escutcheon II, Sasuke Knife, Nagrarock (Nelveska Temple)
    
     2. Gaps in Level-Throw Table. Any help?
    
     3. I'm not sure about Divine Knights' (Rofel and Vormav) equip in Battle
        47 (Hall of St.Murond Temple). One of them, I guess, isn't equipped
        with Save the Queen. Who?
    
     4. Also not sure about Celia and Lede in Battle 31 (Roof of Riovanes
        Castle). Who has what (I mean Barrette and Cachusha)? 
    
     5. Official descriptions of some items (Javelin II, Sasuke Knife, Vanish
        Mantle) are missing. Any help?
    
     6. I heard rumors that in some random battle on Mandalia Plains in the
        second half of Chapter IV you may encounter a company of Knights
        wielding different swords; some of them may have Knight Swords as
        well. Is it true?

      3. Author info
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    My name is Anthony Shimorsky a.k.a. Elmor the Elf. I'm 19 years old. I
    live in Lyubertsy, a small town 3 km from Moscow, capital city of Russian
    Federation. I am a devoted RPG fan... alas, I don't have very much time to
    play often. I study in Moscow State University at the Chemistry Department.
    I am on my third year.
    
    My other fields of interest are music (Pink Floyd, Metallica, Slayer,
    other hard rock and heavy metal bands), literature (J.R.R.Tolkien,
    H.P.Lovecraft, E.A.Poe,  W.Shakespeare, S.King), cultural activity (I like
    to dance jeegs and reels when I visit concerts of celtic music in Moscow
    Central House of Artist) and last but not least cooking (I'm not joking!
    And it's yummy, believe me :) ).
