                                     Please read this note first before you
                                     go to the main document. However, some
                                     of the updates in this note might
                                     contain materials which some will
                                     consider them as 'mini spoilers'.
                                     The main document itself has been
                                     designed not to contain any spoilers
                                     (I don't know if there is, sorry).
                                     Thank you for your concern.     
_____________________________________



It has been a while since the last update and since the U.S. version will 
soon be released (but somehow the pirated copy has already hit the market - 
from a trustworthy sources)it is logical enough to do an update now. However,
I choose to do the opposite: there won't be any updates. 
Why, you ask. Mainly because I'm out of time right now. College stuffs, my
job, got a girl to chase (ha ha) and everything. Sorry.

Then why I posted this 'update'? Simple: to set things right. You know, 
recently I received a mail, the write sue me because I was saying that
Selphie's special arts are useless. He told me that there is a special spell
for Selphie that will kill all the enemies instanly. But here's the 
interesting point of the case: I already knew it. And I found it useless, no
fun, and that is my opinion. So don't say that I threw an opinion without
any required knowledge about it.

Furthermore, I have a copy of FF VIII Ultimania, the official guidebook from 
Squaresoft. The book apparently covers ALL you need to know for PLAYING 
FF VIII. Except for Rinoa's bloodtype (no kidding).
And yes, I can read Japanese.

Unless there is a significant change in the U.S. version, you can actually
use the Japanese guidebook in the U.S. version. Happy reading.

E-mails are still welcome. Send them to these addresses:

    Netaddress account         : kanketsu@usa.net
    Telebot account (prior)    : wing@telebot.net
    Private account            : hi-mi-tsu

Before you write, please keep in mind about these things:
- I didn't mean to be arrogant, but the book has tons of info. So 
  if you're trying to inform me about something related to gameplay, 
  there is a great possibility that I've already know it. Again, I
  didn't have any intentions to be arrogant but if I sound like one,
  let me apologize in advance. Sorry.
- All of the errors (both grammatical and technical)are still there;
  I didn't edit them. No time, sorry.
- There are lots of FAQs beside mine, so you better check them. Afterall,
  the advantage of this document is nothing but easier to read.
  For more details, go check Scott Ong's FAQ(s) or Yu Shen Fu's. They are
  great.
- I appreciate others' opinions. Everything I said in this document is 
  pure my personal opinion. If you are against it, fine. That's yours.
- Here now, gone tomorrow. A reply is not likely. Sorry.
- Seiken Densetsu IV FAQ? Maybe. Maybe not.


Another way to contact me:
Leave a message at RPGFan's MB (www.rpgfan.com). I usually go there. 
Besides, others will help you if I'm not around.



Terms of use:
- You don't have any obligations to inform me if you use this document 
  just for personal use.
- If you want to put this on a website (unaltered), name the place so I
  can pay a visit there. By telling me where your site is, you are 
  already given the permission.
- 'Can I edit your walkthrough for better appearance? HTML?' This case 
  is the same as above. Just NOTIFY me, and go ahead. 
  Oh, yeah, don't forget to put my name somewhere on it. ^^



That's for now.

(not much, though)


1. IMO, the biggest trouble in FF VIII is to find certain items (either
   for tuning your weapons up or acquire Quistis' Blue Magic). Few can be
   brought from stores, the others can be gained by changing cards, but
   changing the cards will 'destroy' the cards. Although there is actually 
   a way to gain them back, wouldn't it be wiser to gain items by another
   way? 
   Apparently, stealing items from enemies is crucial in FF VIII because
   it can gives you tons of items. Therefore many of you will make one
   party member to do the thievery all the time. Steal everything until the
   text 'XXXXX doesn't have anything' pop up on the screen.
   I'm telling you, this is actually a mistake. Some of the monsters DROP
   better items and these items are sometimes (most of the times) different
   than the ones you steal from the same enemy.
   For a better explanation, let's take a look at a SUMMARY from Ultimania,
   6th chapter, Monster Data:
   
   (I use abbreviations due to the lack of space here)
  __________________________________________________________________________
 |                                                                          |
 | Alcheo Dinos                                                             |
 | =========================================================================|
 | Dropped items (total success rate = 255/256)                             |
 | -------------------------------------------                              |
 |                   178/256        51/256        15/256        12/256      |
 | LVL 1-19      E.D. Bone x 1   S.M. Stone x 8  M.stone x 4  E.D. Bone x 2 |
 | LVL 20-29     E.D. Bone x 3   DRAGON FANG x 6 E.D.bone x2  E.D. Bone x 6 |
 | LVL 30-100    E.D. Bone x 6   S. Fragment x 8 E.D.bone x8  S. Fragmentx6 |
 |==========================================================================|
 | Stolen items (total success rate = 64/256)                               |
 | -------------------------------------------                              |
 |                   178/256        51/256        15/256        12/256      |
 | LVL 1-19      E.D. Bone x 1   E.D. Bone  x 1  E.D. Bonex1  E.D. Bone x 2 |
 | LVL 20-29     E.D. Bone x 3   E.D. Bone  x 3  E.D.bone x4  E.D. Bone x 4 |
 | LVL 30-100    E.D. Bone x 8   E.D. Bone  x 8  E.D.bone x10 S. Fragmentx10| 
 |__________________________________________________________________________|


   *) Calculation Example:
   The chance for getting Dragon fang x 6 = 51/256 x 255/256
   and from the table above you can see that the Alcheo Dinos HAS TO BE at
   LVL 20~29. Also, DON'T STEAL, you'll get the items shown in the
   'Stolen Items' table then.

   I hope that info will help you. Not much. (I don't do a translation, it
   is way too consuming my time) although I must admit that providing a
   complete list above will help lots of gamers. Excuse me for being selfish.

   Other note on items is you can gain lots of rare items by playing the
   Pocket Station minigame, 'Odekake Chocobo RPG'. 



2. About the change items ability: certain items require a G.F. to be at
   specific level. For example, Grasharaborus has to be at level 100 
   before he can change 100 Cursed Claw to 1 Dark Matter.


3. Square has put lots of mini events in the game. These will not give you
   any significant advantages (but there is some for certain cases like
   Zell's 'Love Love Event')but it is cool to watch them all. Just spare 
   some times trying to find these out ^^.


4. The score of Eyes on Me: Whenever sang my song.


5. Please remember that the FAQ was based on the Japanese version so 
   expect lots of errors in the translations since my Japanese is not
   perfect. There are several types of errors:
   - Katakana: There are lots of ways to translate kana. Ifrit and
     Efreet actually has the same kana. I choose the cooler, my version.
   - Kanji   : Grammatical or maybe I was just too lazy to check it
     again with dictionary.
   - Others  : Human errors (^_^;)



    





*************** Q U I C K   U P D A T E  ****************

3/ 23/ 1999

- Crytal Power told me that the first lyrics of 'Eyes on Me' should be 
  'I never sang my songs' and the third line should be 'I never said my         
  words'. Yes, it makes sense. I will confirm it as soon as possible but
  meanwhile, I believe he's right.

- Seifer does have R1 trigger. I have received tons of mails saying this.

- About the specials FAQ: The name is TOKUSHU WAZA not Tokushugi or Tokugi.
  Actually, I realized this when I play the remake version of FF VI, open the
  menu and find 'tokushu' inside.
  Besides, Rei Urabe had confirmed this too. Another credit for her. 

- Things I don't know:
  - Kame no Koura. Still wondering where they are.
  - Not good in Card battle. Guess I have to play othello again, huh?
  - What you should do at the room under the wooden bridge in Altimicia's
    Castle (the one that looks like a basement. You can drain the water but
    nothing happens??). 
  - No, I don't have a Pokesute right now.

- Things I already know (just to avoid some unnecessary mails) :
  - The ingredients for your best weapons and where to find them.
  - The requirements for acquiring all the G.F.s and that includes how
    to beat the not-so-that-hard Ultima Weapon
  - How to locate and beat Omega Weapon. Just don't ask me now.
  - A database concerning G.F.s, Items, magic, Draw points, etc. But please
    take a note: EVERYONE CAN DO IT if you know the language; just READ
    THE TUTORIAL. End of discussion.
  - Some cheap battle methods. Here's one of them:
    Make your status attack junctioned with Sleep X 100, another character
    with Stop X 100, and the third character Death X 100. Trust me, it works
    60% of the time and can save your time a lot.
  - The ultimate battle method:
    Requirements: Squall's End of Heart learned (optional)
                  Quistis' Mighty Guard learned
                  At least 1 Aura spell 
                  3 Eiyuu no Kusuri (Hero's Medicine)
    Steps:       
    1. Cast Aura on Quistis.    
    2. Use her Mighty Guard. It casts Regen, Protesu, Shell, and Levitate
       (and also Aura, but sometimes it doesn't work. Don't know why) at 
       once.
    3. Use Hero's Medicine on three characters.
    4. Voila! You'll have an invinsible party. Just attack the opponent
       with your specials.
    The downside:
    If the Aura effects fade out too soon.  
 
- Anything that has been covered by me, Yu Shenfu, Steven Bruck and Scott
  Ong. You can find the info in each's FAQ.

|                   | Hajimemashite. Welcome to the unofficial walkthrough   |
|                   | of Final Fantasy VIII, written by me. I'm doing this   |
|                   | because I want to challenge myself in writing skills.  |
|                   | However, English is not my mother language; the fact   |
|                   | leads to grammatical errors scattered among your way.  |
|                   |               ---------------------                    |
|  INTRODUCTION     | A more friendly format had been chosen to avoid these  |
|  ------------     | errors but some will remain, waiting someone to tell   |
|                   | me where they are.                                     |
|                   |               ---------------------                    |
|                   | I'm not as good as Kao Megura, but I'll put my best in |
|                   | this walkthrough. If you have any questions, comments, |
|                   | or even critics, just send them to kanketsu@usa.net.   |
|                   | Participants are welcome. See you there!               |

|                   | This is not your typical FAQ. As a matter of fact, the |
|                   | format was based on common Japanese Guidebooks (like   |
|  HOW TO NAVIGATE  | V-Jump FF VII guide, or Final Fantasy Complete Works   |
|  ---------------  | by Digicube. Both can be found on your local Japanese  |
|                   | bookstores) and maybe unfamiliar to you.               |
|                   |               ----------------------                   |
|                   | Guess what, it is simpler than you think. Basicly, the |
|                   | COMPLETE WALKTHROUGH is seperated into several "FAQ"s  |
|                   | (I don't like the term anyway, but I believe it will   |
|                   | represent my point). Some are independent, but all of  |
|                   | them refer to this WALKTHROUGH.                        |
|                   |               ----------------------                   |
|                   | Keep this in mind: You can get optimum advantage by    |
|                   | using the parts simultaneously, but this depends on    |
|                   | your reading intention. If you want simple hints and   |
|  Want some        | want to find all the secrets for yourself, then this   |
|       details ?   | walkthrough will perfectly suit you. On the other      |
|                   | hand, FAQs on particular subjects (like item chart or  |
|                   | special arts) might come in handy for the beginners,   |
|                   | who don't have pride as much as old-school gamers (No  |      
|                   | offense!).                                             |
|                   |               ----------------------                   |
|                   | The walkthrough itself is divided into two parts:      |
|                   | - left side that contains the necessary steps,         |
|                   |   CHRONOLOGICAL order to avoid spoilers.               |
|  Left and Right   | - right side that contains some game commments, but    |
|                   |   not details.                                         |
|                   | Some notations are included in the right side, giving  |
|                   | you directions to the related topics.                  |

|                   | at least I've done efforts in asking permissions       |
|                   | to the rightful ones (and it wasn't too easy...        |
|                   | trust me). Besides, does it harm you for sending       |

|                   | been covered by others while there are many other      |

|                   | reference above).                                      |
|                   | Or you might want to check Scott Ong's FAQ. He has     |
|                   | some basics, too.                                      |
|                   |            -------------------------------             |
| JUNCTION          | Junction is the main system in FF VIII. The term is    |
| --------          | unfimiliar to English speakers, I know. Junction is    |
|                   | actually the same as the old one: "Equip", differs     |
|                   | only in the object.                                    |
|                   | There are no equipping in FF VIII (even for weapons)   |
|                   | since they have been replaced with "Junction". It      |
|                   | allows you to "equip" magics to all of your parameters |
|                   | and increasing them. In certain cases, junction gives  |
|                   | you some effects like status ailments immunity or      |
|                   | else....                                               |
|                   | BTW, you need a GF before you do junction.             |
|                   |            --------------------------------            |
| DRAW              | All magics are obtained by drawing from enemies or     |
| ----              | draw points. You need to equip a GF with command       |
|                   | ability "Draw" before drawing magics.                  |
|                   | *) Magics can also be obtained from items. More on     |
|                   |    this later.                                         |

|             |              | about to graduate as a SeeD member IF he      |
|             |              | pass the exam. His personality is really      |
|             |              | something since he has an interesting         |
|             |              | phylosophy that everyone are responsible for  |
|             |              | their own business. "Everyone has to carry    |
|             |              | his own burden." he says.                     |
|             |              | Why he's saying that? You'll find out later.  |

|             |              | Squall's advisor. Apparently, she is the      |
|             |              | "onee-sama" (older women^^) in the game       |
|             |              | although her age is the same as Squall's. As  |
|             |              | a Garden teacher, Quistis is infamous among   |
|             |              | her students...there is a "fan club" for her. |
|             |              | However, this affects her reputation and the  |
|             |              | ethic commitee doesn't like a well (???)      |
|             |              | relations between Quistis and her students... |
|             |              | Anyway, Quistis is a good teacher but seems   |
|             |              | to caring too much for her students....       |
|             |              | especially Squall.                            |

|             |              | network is somehow similar to our real time   |

|             |              | fun to "see" the student's conversation.      |

| ! Equip your G.F.          | ___________________Main System no.1: Junction |
|             |              |                                               |
|             |              | Now you'll have to learn about junction.      |
|             |              | Basicly junction is the same as "equip" but   |
|             |              | it can customize everything about your        |
|             |              | characters.                                   |
|             |              |                                               |
|             |              | First, equip Squall a G.F. Now you can equip  |
|             |              | some magics to your parameters. Which ones    |
|             |              | you can equip to depends on the G.F.s ability.|
|             |              | For example: If Shiva has "strength junction" |
|             |              | and Squall is currently equipped with her,    |
|             |              | then Squall will be able to junction some     |
|             |              | magics into his attack power, making his      |
|             |              | physical attack stronger.                     |
|             |              |                                               |
|  Optimize your settings.   | After you equipped a G.F., you have an option |
|             |              | to optimize your settings.                    |
|             |              |    Attack        Magic         Defense        |
|             |              | Since you don't have any magics right now,    |
|             |              | we'll skip the magic junction.                |
|             |              |                                               |
|  Set up your battle menu.  | Now about command abilities. These are the    |
|             |              | ones you use in battles. At this point, you   |
|             |              | only have Magic, Draw, and Item. Set them up  |
|             |              | in your battle window.                        |
|             |              |                                               |
|  Party and menu ability.   | Notice the lower box on the left? It's for    |
|             |              | character or party abilities; you get two     |
|             |              | vacant slots for equipping a G.F. (no, it's   |
|             |              | not cumulative. Equipping ten G.F.s still     |
|             |              | gives you two slots). Later in the game,      |
|             |              | There are G.F.s which have ability that give  |
|             |              | you three slots, and eventually four.         |

|          |                 |  is no any forkroad or something like that    |
|          |                 |  but the enemies in here are pretty strong.   |
|          |                 | In the first part of the dungeon, you'll      |
|          |                 | notice that you can only go to the LEFT       |
|          |                 | side. The RIGHT side is your destination.     |
|          |                 | So the long run is only a detour to get       |
|          |                 | to the right side of the dungeon...           |

|          |                 |At this point, the town doesn't provide much
|          |                 |to you. All the exploration still worths,

|          |                 |"like that". He likes to go out and explore
|          |                 |the world, chasing his dream. Besides,

|          |                 | were held in the sand prison. I didn't put
|          |                 | the "Sand Prison" word back then since I 
|          |                 | don't want to give you spoilers.
|          |                 | About the prison's layout:
|          |                 | It consists of several identical floors,
|          |                 | one of them has Kakutoh Oh no. 1. Don't

|          |                 | Dolphin Blow for Zell.
|          |                 | Another important note about this place:
|          |                 | NPC's in this place have interesting cards.
|          |                 | Try to beat them (I don't fight them because
|          |                 | at this point I haven't found out the card
|          |                 | battle system).

|    Now you have a ship. Feel free to explore the worldmap. However, 
|    you'll realize that your "ship" is very limited in mobility...so you
|    can't go to every place you want.
|    Some places you might want to visit:
|    - Winhill. Still quiet as ever.
|    - Dollet. It's a busy town!
|    - Sentra ruin. Fight Odin.
|    - Syumi underground village. Learn about Laguna.
|    Exploring aome islands can give you experiences, items (as always,
|    steal them!), and perhaps a little addition to your magic library.   
|                            |
|    When you're done with it, go to Balamb City.

| FINAL DUNGEON:             | It deserves the "Final dungeon" predicate.    |
|    ALTIMICIA'S CASTLE      | Well, doesn't mean anything when compared to  |
| ----------------------     | Cleft of Dimensions in FF V (best final       |
|                            | dungeon ever!) but it's still challenging.    |
|                            | Altimicia's Castle is not that hard, but the  |
|                            | "seals" made it so. Read on.                  |

|   - Magic                  | to Altimicia's lair. But IMHO, it is insane.  |

|   - Command Ability        | So here's what you have to do: locate all the |
|   - Special Arts           | seal's guardian and defeat them, one by one.  |
|   - Revive Ability         | One down, one ability and there are eight of  |
|   - Save                   | them.                                         |

|           |                | Since I have abundant supply of "Aura", I     |
|           |                | choose magic, and then special arts.          |
|           |                | Yes, it's all about playing styles...         |

| Move two party "at once"   | The excellent feature of FF VI is back! But   |
|           |                | actually, you can beat most of this level by  |
|           |                | using just one party; leaving the other as a  |
|           |                | crouch. Still there are certain points where  |
|           |                | you'll be forced to use both parties...       |

| *) If you only have three good characters (or less), keep in mind that     |
|    there is a way to cover all the area in Altimicia Castle by one party.  |
|                                                                            |
| You'll find some glowing green circles. You can change party or change     |

Not much to discussed here...


Gameshark? Not necessary.

  I've heard that in Asia, the importers had succeed in created a "backed up"
  copies of FF VIII. You can play it on a mod-chip equipped system without
  gameshark codes. It is possible since the "check up points" in the game had
  been removed. They are:
  - The staff intro (the black and white slide show) in every disc.
  - The instruction screen that tellsyou to change disc.
  And this has been confirmed by Crystal Power (cryspower@hotmail.com). He 
  lives in Malaysia. 


Seifer's Gunblade Trigger.

  Someone told me that Seifer has the R1 feature as Squall. You need to push
  the button slightly faster to do it. I'm not sure about this...maybe it's 
  just a plain rumor. I need some info here. 
  Well, I'm starting to received some responses but I haven't clarify it yet.
  Please be patient.

- PSM online (www.psx.ign.com)and Gaming Intelligence Agency
  (www.gaming-intelligence.com). Both has information on gameshark codes
  that make you able to play the Japanese FF VIII on my PS. I'm sure that
  others have it too, but I found the codes on the sites above.

- Edmund Chiu (edf91@worldnet.att.net)
  For telling me how to put in Japanese fonts in a document.

- Sebastien Ruchet (ruchet@worldnet.net)
  "Feel free to distribute this walkthrough, however in its current form."
  I took some of the disclaimer from his Grandia FAQ. A very good FAQ! 
  I hope he will write again when Grandia 2 comes up... (and he will. He
  told me! Can't wait to read it.)
  
- Matthew Emirzian (mtemichan@aol.com)
  "This walkthrough (or any part of it) cannot be reproduced or altered
   by any means without sole permission from the author. Any form of 
   plagiarism will be dealt with under full extent of the law."
  Same as above. I took some of the disclaimer quotes from his Xenogears 
  secrets FAQ. 
 
- James (_ravensong_@yahoo.com)
  For telling me additional info about Diabolos and being supportive to me.

- Rei Urabe (rei_urabe.saitoh@nifty.ne.jp)
  Special thanks for letting me put her works on this walkthrough. Remember,
  the credits for the SeeD test answer (the exact answer) list and the G.F.
  quick list all goes for her. And don't forget the "Eyes on Me" lyrics.
  You should check her site at member.nifty.ne.jp/Rei/ff8/.

- Dennis Fan Chang (dfchang@uci.edu)
  For being supportive on this work. Thank you for your offer to help; I'll
  definitely need it pretty soon (since the chart is near completion right
  now).  

- Rolf (rcsw@ihug.co.nz)
  For remind me where I can find the Pet magazine vol.1. He also told me to
  put my e-mail address properly...I guess he's right. You can see it in 
  ver 0.1 but not in the 0.2, since the "first scene" is dominated with
  the revision history things etc.
  Bottom line: Thanks!

- Yu Shen Fu (ysf@pacific.net.sg)
  We discussed the "specials" and finally came up with the specials. I have
  to thank him for it. Thanks.

- Crystal Power (cryspower@hotmail.com)
  For a confirmation on the miscellaneous gameshark.

- Veronica Ferrando (verofer@teleline.es)
  She sent me a Card Battle Mini FAQ but I haven't got a chance to edit it
  (since several parts of it are in Spanish) so I guess you'll have to wait
  until the next update. However, thanks. I appreciate it.


- Yulius Leonard (leonard.yulius@mailcity.com)
  For telling me how to get the Kakutou Oh vol.3, Thanks.
  For telling me spoilers (about the ending), ... you don't have to tell me
  about THAT.

- And all the supportive ones!

 - A little plot translations?

   scattered along in this FAQ, technically or grammatically, but I might not
   be able to located all of them by myself.

Of course, you'll get credit for it!
