    II) INTRODUCTION=========================
     You probably all know FF6, this micro-FAQ isn t a valktru (there are already
    hundreds of good FAQs), it s only a little guide about how to uncurse the
    cursed shield and some other tips. Personnally I cannot claim being a FF6
    Master, because it is my first game, but I have found some things wich can be
    interresting, so I think everyone should know them. Because i m not a ff6
    master, and i m not english born, i can make some mistakes in the language or
    about the game, so if you see one, please e-mail me, if you have some tip wich
    is not already in this faq, please e-mail me too, and if you want to insult me,
    you can too. here are the adresses:
     -telling a mistake/a new tip: TZEJO@WANADOO.FR
    III) BASICS==============================
     To get the cursed shield, you need to go to narshe with Locke (in the World Of
    Ruins), he is able to open the locked doors here, you ll find the shield in the
    house north of the weapon shop (above the stairs, a man will give it to you).
    As you can see below, the shield is the worst one in the game, but if you do
    256 (and not 255) battles with it equipped on a living character, it will morph
    into the Palladin Shield, wich is the best shield in the game and a must have,
    a character equipped with it will be almost invulnerable! And the Palladin
    Shield teaches ULTIMA!!! But it will be a pain doing 256 battles with it
    equipped, mainly because of all the status it puts on you and the weaknesses to
    all elements (the character equipped with it will be killed almost every time
    he is hit by an elemental spell). To make this a lot easier, you should equip
    your character with a Ribbon (wich counters all the bad status inflicted but
    condemned) and an armor that absorbs/reduces the elements (I suggest Force
    Armor or Minerva). Some people usually uncurse it while playing the game, so
    they don t waste time, but if you do that:
    -you will be able to learn ultima very late in the game
    -it ll be a pain trying to keep the shield s wearer alive through all the game
    ...so i strongly think it s better to uncurse it as soon as you get it!

            It s not particularly the subject,
            but it s cursed too, and it doesn t take
            too much place, so i ll discribe it too:
       | Casts Condemned on wearer                    |
       | DOESN T UNCURSE                              |
    -the Ribbon is NOT a requirement to uncurse the shield, it only makes it easier
    -unequip the shield and reequip it DOES NOT increase the battles to do to
     uncurse it (but it s said so in some faqs!)
    -running from a battle cannot uncurse it, you must "win" the battle, but you
     don t need to kill the ennemies, if they run away (like the doom gaze) or if
     they die themselves (like the ennemies in the solitary island) it counts a
     battle won too
    -GOGO CANNOT UNCURSE IT!!(don t waste time like I did!)
    -a dead character, or a petrified one, cannot uncurse it, and i think a zombie
     char cannot too, but i ve not tried, (a character with the relic ring is
     considered alive and can uncurse). An imp can, though.
    -everyone (but gogo and umaro of course) can uncusre it
    -unfortunately, doing battles in the coliseum cannot uncurse it
    -You can uncurse the shield on the Veldt, but you cannot if gau leaps into an
     ennemy or comes back (in this case the battle is not counted)
    -If you equip several things (shield, armor, helmet, relic) with different
     elemental resistances, your character ll have the best one for every element.
     (i.e you have equipped a shield weak against fire and that absorbs wind, and a
     jacket 50% fire and 50% wind, your character will absorb wind because of the
     shield and have a 50% fire resistance because of the jacket(PS: I know there
     isn t any shield or jacket like this, it was for the example))
    -Ragnarok and Illumina use mps to do critical hits: they hit critical only when
     you have enough magic! They need a various amount of mps between 10 and 20
     (i think), probably depending of the damage they will do. but if you use them
     with offering, they won t hit critical and won t use mps too.
    -The amount of mps Celes will absorb by runicking depends on her weakness to
     the spell s element (the whole info is from dhsmike@hotmail.com):
     -If she is weak against that element, she will absorb double mps
     -If she has 1/2 resistance, she will absorb half the mps
     -If she nullifies that element, she will absorb zero mps
     -If she absorbs the element, she will LOSE mps :(
     -Celes can absorb some of the spells called by Gau when he is Raged, use a
      rage like Aspik(gigavolt=bolt3) or Templar(fire2) and runic for free mp...
    -Hyper Wrists, Atlas Armlets, Earrings and Hero Rings
     I have done some experiences and here is what I have concluded (I may be
     -1 Hyper Wrist raises your vigor by 50%
     -1 Atlas Armlet raises the fight damages by 25%. It s not addable, so 2 Atlas
      Armlets raise by 25% (and not 50)
     -1 Earring raises the magic damages by 25%. It is addable, so 2 Earrings raise
      it by 50%
     -1 Hero Ring is like 1 Atlas Armlet + 1 Earring (so it raises fight and magic
      damage by 25%)
     -2 Hero Rings are like 1 Atlas Armlet + 2 Earring (because the physical
      bonuses are not cumuled), so it raises fight damage by 25% and magic by 50%)
     So the more powerful associations I have found is Hero Ring + Earring (same
     effect as 2 Hero Rings because the fight bonus isn t added, but cheapest
     because Earring is easier to find) or Hero Ring + Hyper Wrist(raises the fight
     damage about 50% in all and the magic one by 25%)
    -I have tried too Edgar s tools and Sabin s blitzes, and have classed them as
     follows (I haven t listed the one which do no damage or if the damage doesn t
     depends of vigor or magic and isn t raised by Atlas Armlet or Earrings):
     EDGAR:           Type of damage:      Depends of:
      Flash             magic                mag.pwr
      Drill             fight                vigor
      Auto Crossbow     fight                vigor
      Bio Blaster       magic                mag.pwr
      Chainsaw          fight                vigor
     SABIN:           Type of damage:      Depends of:
      Pummel            fight                vigor
      Aura Bolt         magic                mag.pwr
      Supplex           fight                vigor
      Fire Dance        magic                mag.pwr
      Air Blade         magic                mag.pwr
      Bum Rush          magic                mag.pwr
     (deleted of the FAQ because it couldn t work, sorry)
    You ll need:
     -the Cursed Shield(of course)
     -a Ribbon
     -2 True Knight
     -2 Cure Ring (or better: Marvel Shoes)
     -If possible a Back Guard to prevent a back attack
    You need 4 characters, take anyone you want, it s not important. Give someone
    the Cursed Shield and a Ribbon. Give everyone your best equipement of course.
    Give your 2 most resistant characters the True Knights and Cure Rings, they
    will be the HPs Tanks. If you have a Back Guard, equip it to your fourth
    character. Put everyone in the back row to minimize the damage they will take.
    Go on the Solitary Island (Where Celes begins in the World Of Ruin). Here the
    ennemies are very weak, and die themselves after a few seconds if you don t
    kill them. In the battles select the "Fight" command for everyone (except Edgar
    if you have taken him: select the Tools/Auto Crossbow). Walk on the island
    until you have done the 256 battles, but don t go in the desert because you can
    encounter some other ennemies a little stronger. You should go just one step
    north of the desert, and walk left and right, keeping the "A" button (or the
    "Confirmation" button) pressed. Basically, you don t even need to watch the
    sceen: just keep the "A" button pressed and altern left/right. If you have a
    programmable pad it will be even easier. If you use an emulator, activate his
    "Turbo Mode" to make it even faster.
     ! CAUTION !
     -It is a lot better to walk left/right instead of up/down (especially if you
    don t watch the screen and let your programmable pad do the work for you),
    because you won t select any other command by mistake doing this (at worst you
    will select "Row" or "Def").
    Carey Adamson (cadamson1@mac.com) sent me this:
     I thought of a way to simply go around that problem all together.  Since you
     can assign different controllers to different characters in the setup, why not
     use two different controllers? Controller ONE would be the programpad,
     programmed to continuously move left and right.  In the controller setup, you
     can assign all your characters to controller TWO where "A" is simply taped
     down.  Now your characters aren't  "recieving left/right" in battle but are
     instead fighting the whole time...
     -you MUST keep the button "A" pressed to automatically close the windows wich
    tell you how many exp, MPs and GPs you have won after the battle
     -It is the shortest method I have found (about 1H30 to uncurse)
     -The ennemies here give you fixed (and low) amount of exp: 1 exp/battle/char,
    so you will only gain 256 exp for each character after doing the 256 battles
    (good for a low level game), and if you know your strarting exp here for one
    character, you can know exactly how much battles you have fought (and how much
    there is remaining). For example, Edgar had 100000 exp when i started making
    battles, and now he has 100113 exp, this means the team has done 113 battles
    (and there remains 256-113=143 battles).
     -If you have a programmable pad you don t even need to pay any attention to
    the game
     -You don t need any special equipement or high-level characters, because the
    ennemies here are weak
     -The ennemies give you 1 MP each battle, so you ll have gained 256 MPs when
    uncursed: equip some slow learning espers (like Phoenix that you OBLIGATORILY
    have and wich has the VERY powerful Life3)
    How does this work? Simply: the game stocks in one byte the number of battles
    you ve made with the shield equipped, when you do a battle with the shield
    equipped, this number increases. When this number is 255 and you do a battle
    with the shield equipped, it comes back to 0 and the shield is uncursed. If you
    have more than one Cursed Shield equipped (because of hacking with GG or AR),
    the number will increase of the number of shields you have equipped in your
    team (max 4). If you have several Cursed Shields equipped and this number is
    just ready to pass (ie: you have 2 shields equipped and the number is 254), you
    make a fight, then this will uncurse ONE of the Cursed Shields you are wearing
    and the number will come back to 0 or a little more (if the number is 255 and
    you do a battle with 4 shields equipped, one of the shields will be uncursed,
    and the number will be increased 3 more times, so it will be 3). So if you don
    t want to waste time, just find the Hex adress of this byte, and put it to 255,
    so the next battle you do with the shield equipped will uncurse it.
    On my version of the rom, the Hex adress is 7E1DD5, but I have read somewhere
    that nintendo has done different releases of the game, to correct the bugs and
    to frustrate hackers from finding more codes, so if this adress doesn t work
    for your release, try finding the right adress by the codes finding tool.
    Personnaly, I don t use this code (I uncurse the shield with the solitary
    island s method with my emulator s turbo mode), but I have put this technical
    information to be as exhaustive as possible. This isn t very bad cheating,
    though, because it will only save you time (for me, bad cheating makes the game
    VI) MICRO VALKTROU=======================
    This is only a micro-guide for those who don t know what to do in the less
    linear part of the game (when you get the airship in the WOR). You shouldn t
    build your characters before having them all: when you get a character, he has
    the same level as the average of your whole team (except gogo for me wich was 2
    levels more than he should have been, so don t find him at first). (ie: if you
    have 4 characters, 3 at level 20 and one at level 30, when you get one more
    char he will be at lvl: (20+20+20+30)/4= 22), so DON T LEVEL UP BEFORE HAVING
    ALL YOUR CHARACTERS, even if you don t do a low level game, it isn t hard don t
    leveling up here.
    -you get the airship
    -go find MOG and the VERY valuable moggle charm! (in Narshe)
    -go find all the characters you don t need to fight to have: Cyan, Gau, Gogo
    -go find all the treasures you can have without fighting (using mog) in the
    fanatic tower, in the ancient castle (take odin but DO NOT change him into
    raiden yet!!, speed bonus), go 3 times in Kefka Tower (1st time with Mog in the
    first team, 2nd time in the 2nd...) to take all treasures here,...
    -go find the espers zoneseek & golem in the auction house in jidoor, find
    sraphim in Tzen if you haven t it yet (talk with the man nord/east of the town)
    -go find locke (phoenix tower), in one team put mog with moogle charm+sprint
    shoes, the other team should have your best characters, and EDGAR if possible.
    you ll encounter some hard fights you cannot run away (even with warp, grr!),
    just use EDGAR s noise blaster wich corrupts all ennemies, and kill them with
    non-physical attacks. these fights are the only difficulty here, so now you
    should find locke easyly
    -go find the cursed shield in narshe with locke
    -uncurse the shield with the method you have choosen
    -go take the ragnarok in narshe (see the ragnarok section)
    -go find all your remaining characters:
     -shadow in the cave in the veldt,
     -relm in the owner s house in jidoor,
     -strago in the fanatic s tower(you need relm),
     -umaro in narshe (you need MOG with you!!)
    -go find the offering in the ancient castle and the gem box in the fanatic s
    -level up your characters (see the level up section)
    -change odin for raiden in the ancient castle
    -go in the coliseum for the marvel shoes and some good stuff (see the coliseum
    -kill all the 8 dragons and doom gaze for bahamut and crusader if you haven t
    done yet
    -go in cyan s castle for cyan s dream
    -go with strago and relm in Thamasa to do the elbot s rock quest
    -go in kefka s tower to fight the bosses here and get all the good stuff here
    that you don t already have(aura lance, etc.)
    I think it s almost all, but I may have forgotten some or be wrong in the best
    order, e-mail me if so.
    VII) RAGNAROK OR RAGNAROK:===============
    ===========WICH ONE TO CHOOSE?===========
    In narshe you ll have to choose between the ragnarok sword and the esper (in
    the weapon shop):
    -the sword is the most powerful one in the game
    -the esper teaches ultima and can morph ennemys into items (but has no level up
    Forget that the esper teaches ultima, simply because it can be learned from the
    Palladin Shield, the only remaining argument for the esper is that by morphing
    you can get one item that cannot be obtained any other way (the Cursed Ring),
    and morphing lets you have almost every item easier than the other methods to
    have them (and sometimes it s the only way to have a type of items
    -If you want to have every item in the game, take the sword: you ll be able to
    have 252 items, and obtain the one remaining (Cursed Ring) simply by
    magiciting, so you ll finally have 253.
    -If you want to have every esper, take the esper of course, this way you ll be
    able to get unlimitedly almost every item in the game, you ll finally have 252
    items in all, and you ll miss the best sword in the game.
    I usually take the sword, for it s power (uh, Illumina...), and having all
    possible items.
    If you still hesitate, you should uncurse the cursed shield first, before
    choosing, and save your game. Now try one choice, and, if it doesn t meet you,
    try the other one, knowing anyway you ll have the Palladin Shield already
    NOTE: Don t think about getting all the items unlimitedly by using magicite to
    morph unless you have some time to lose: it s VERY random:
    -the magicite must cast the good esper (Ragnarok): 1 chance on 27
    -Ragn must be casted on the right ennemy (kill the other ones before)
    -the esper must success in morphing
    -You must morph the ennemy into the good thing (1 chance on 4)
    And if the magicite casts an esper wich kills the ennemy, you must restart the
    fight and try to find the good ennemy one more time...
    But if you morph with the esper:
    -the esper must success in morphing (but it s not a problem with mimicking)
    -You must morph the ennemy into the good thing (1 chance on 4)
    So finally it s only one chance on 4 with the esper...
    VIII) LEVELLING UP=======================
    In this game, it isn t a good idea to level up early. Why? simply because you
    get the best espers (wich give you the best level up bonus) late in the game.
    If you get them at level one (in extreme!), you ll be able to level up 98 times
    with excellent bonuses like vigor +2 or magic +2. You can do a low level game
    (very hard) to have gods at the end (the best I ve heard about have reached the
    WOR with characters at level 9! Congratulations to them!!), but even without
    it, it isn t very hard to get in the World Of Ruins characters with level less
    than 25 (in my first game they were all about lvl 23 when I got them all). The
    best espers to level up with are:
     -Bahamut             HP +50%
     -Crusader            MP +50%
     -Raiden or Bismark   Vigor   +2
     -Zoneseek or Tritoch Magic   +2
     -Golem or Scarlet    Stamina +2
     -Odin                Speed   +1
    Note that you should never level up with raiden because he is Odin transformed,
    I STRONGLY suggest you to keep odin until all your characters are at lvl 99
    (build their vigor with Bismark). And, some other thing is, you shouldn t build
    your characters to the max in one statistic (128), because at level 99, they
    will mainly do 9999 damage anyway, prefer building all their important stats a
    little. You shouldn t build up Stamina, because it only affects your recovery
    rate by the regen spell and tintinabar, and not that much, and your resistance
    to SOME instant death spells, so it s USELESS. You should build up Speed for
    every character, Speed is useful in EVERY battle, because you ll be able to
    select commands more offen. Build it up anyway, and you can build another
    statistic to a correct power, the choice remains between Vigor and Magic, and
    is dependent, for each character, on his/her special abilities and on the
    weapons he/she is able to equip. Another important info: don t build HPs or
    MPs: anyway, even without building them, at level 99, all characters have HPs
    above 9700 and MPs above 960, so it not very important having "only" 9753 HP
    instead of 9999, i think, prefer spending levels in the other important
    characteristics. But if you really want to have max HPs and MPs, build the HPs
    up about level 70, and the MPs about level 49, because when you level up at
    these levels, you gain a big amount of HPs or MPs, so you ll win 50% from a big
    amount of HPs and MPs and you ll be able to have max HPs and MPs only by
    building them about 2 or 3 levels each (info from Master ZED s HP/MP FAQ,
    thanks to him), but i still think it s level wasting.
    How much should you build? I think it s a good idea to get Speed and the other
    characteristic(s) you have choosen about the same value for a good balance. To
    simplify this, just get the lowest characteristic of the character to the value
    of the other (if Edgar has 23 Speed and 30 Vigor, build his Speed until 30).
    Then build him up alternating the espers (Odin/Bismark in my example) every 6
    points gained for example (here, Odin for 6 levels, Bismark for the 3 next
    ones, then Odin for another 6...). If you start building at lvl 24 for ex, you
    ll build up for 75 levels, which gives you about:
    - +50 Speed & +50 Vigor (or Magic) if you build only 2 characteristics
    - +35 Speed, +35 Vigor & +35 Magic if you build the 3 main characteristics
    Now you should have gods!!
     ! CAUTION !
    If you want to keep the game hard, DON T USE LEVEL UP BONUSES, because if you
    do this, your characters will be REALLY powerful and be able to kill every
    ennemy in the game in one or two hits (including the final boss!!), so it will
    probably kill the interest of the game if you want to keep the challenge...
    There are 3 manners to level up (i think):
    -build Speed to the max you can for everyone, they should be able to act VERY
    quickly, but they won t do the max possible damage
    -build the 3 main statistics for everyone (about +35 bonus in Speed, Vigor &
    Magic if you start at lvl 24), everyone will be polyvalent in magic and attack
    power (mostly 9999 dmg each attack at lvl 99 with a powerful weapon/spell), and
    will be fast too (but not as much as the above method)
    -build speed for everyone and choose for each char between building vigor and
    magic (specialize them), your choice should depend (like i said above) of the
    character s own ability and the weapons he/she is able to equip, for excessive
    speed and power bonuses (50 if started at lvl 24), your char will do 9999 each
    hit with almost every weapon/spell in his specialization and be fast, but won t
    be polyvalent
    I personnally used the 3rd method, if you want to do so, here are all the
    characters and their important statistics ACCORDING TO ME. I have classed them
    in 3 categories: those for wich you should prefferaly build up Vigor and those
    wich are better with Magic:
     LOCKE: (Vigor & Speed) His chances to Steal DOESN T DEPEND OF SPEED!!! So
    build up his Vigor, because he can equip the most powerful weapons in the game
    (and my so loved Wing Edge!)
     EDGAR (Vigor & Speed) Almost every Tool (and especially the most powerful
    ones) is depending on Vigor, and he can equip the best weapons in the game.
     TERRA (Vigor & Speed) I know she is normally an esper, but she can equip
    almost all the good weapons, and with her "Morph" ability, she will be able to
    do GREAT damage, even with the offering, wich decreases the power of each
    attack by a half, she will be able to do 9999 each it with a good weapon...
     CELES (Vigor & Speed) She is normally a magic user too, and I use she as a
    fighter too... well, she can equip the best weapons too...
     CYAN (Vigor & Speed) His SwordTechs depends on Vigor, so...
     SHADOW (Vigor & Speed) His throw command makes physical damage from anything
    but the edges (fire, bolt water), he can equip some interresting weapons, and
    there are already 6 mages and only 5 warriors, so I make him warrior
     SABIN (Magic & Speed) The damages of the most powerful blitzes are depending
    on Magic, and the weapons he can equip are not that powerful.
     RELM (Magic & Speed) I THINK the succes of her "Sketch/Control" ability is
    determinated by her Magic Power, her weapons are powerless anyway!
     STRAGO (Magic & Speed) His special ability "Lore" is 100% magic, and the
    weapons he can equip are powerless!!
     MOG (Magic & Speed) I THINK the success of his Dances and their power is
    determinated by magic, so...
     SETZER (Magic & Speed) His ability and weapons are so POWERLESS that I always
    use him as a mage... (in fact I never use him :) )
     GAU ( Magic & Speed) He cannot equip any weapon, and the only physical attacs
    he can do are from his rages, wich i never use (i don t like when i don t
    control my character s actions), so i make him a mage.
     GOGO Since you cannot equip any Espers to him/her/it, it s not a problem :)
     UMARO You cannot equip any Espers to him too, so...
    You must know that the experience you receive is divided in the number of
    characters ALIVE in your group. i.e: you have 3 characters alive and kill an
    ennemy wich gives 6000 xp, each character receives 6000/3=2000 xp. But you must
    know that 1 char at level 99 STILL RECEIVES EXP!!! Yes, it s stupid but you
    must know that. So it s useless to train a low level character in your team
    with 3 chars at level 99!! It s experience wasting!
    IX)=========BEST WAYS TO GET=============
    =========EVERY ITEM IN THE GAME==========
    Here are, according to me, the best ways to get every item in the game. I HAVE
    NOT listed all the ways because it s useless and it would be too long. The
    first list is made for people who haven t taken the Ragn esper, and the second
    is for poeple wich have Choosen him (Morph list). In this description, "Unique
    items" means the items you cannot get unlimitedly (force shield, force armor
    ...), "Obsolete items" those you can only get unlimitedly BEFORE the floating
    continent, and "Unlimited items", those you can get unlimitedly in the WOR...
    Since you can Morph ennemies into items with the Ragnarok esper, some unique
    items without him can still be gotten unlimitedly by morphing, and some
    unlimited items can be gotten more easyly with the esper. If you have taken it,
    search in the second list first, and, if you don t find it, search in the not-
    morphing list.
    For doing this part, i made use of the following FAQs (I have NOT copied from
    -Master ZED's "Monster statistics" FAQ
    -The "Coliseum FAQ", from EdTheMoogle
    -"The Mynock s guide to FF3" from... Mynock
    They can all be found on gamefaqs.
    ryan_gf@hotmail.com send me this a while ago (sorry i didn t make an update):
     "Ok here is my secret, first off I want all credit to me(R_HUGEWOOD). Ok this
     is a secret I knew about since the game almost first came out but it was always
     too good of a secret to give away. It is a secret to get some of the best
     equipment near the end of the World of Balance. Ok first off u turn some one
     invisible, then u use that sketch chick to sketch the person invisible. then a
     big glitch will happen(if not keep trying) and people will turn into weird
     things and screen will go screwy but u run when this happens or use smoke
     bomb(this is WAYYY!! better) now look in your items window and u will have a
     whole ton of items with weird symbols beside them and some of the most powerful
     equipment in the game. I haven't done this in awhile but I know it works
     because me and my friend are the *ONLY* people who know about this. I am only
     giving this too you because the game is old and you are the only person I know
     that still has an almost updated faq on the game(since the game is a few years
     old) If you could, could u please post this e-mail on your site because I want
     total credit and not just a little credits name at bottom I want everybody to
     know that this is my secret. I also knew about the Invisible doom trick to kill
     anyone in game(almost), before anyone else. I thank for your time and if u
     could please e-mail me back as soon as possible to see what you think of this
     ultimate secret.
     PS. You can sell alot of this stuff for infinite money too.
     PPS. I will also check the trick out again but it may take me awhile because I
     haven't played the game in like a year and I have to start a new game.
     PPS. I really want you to post this e-mail on your FAQ for me and my friends
    Since i knew this since a while (i learned this on gamefaqs forum :-D ), i answered him with this mail:
     "Uh! Hello!
     I m sorry to tell this to you, but the sketch glitch is already known by a LOT
     of people! The first time i heard about it was on gamefaqs forum, there are
     there people who know much more than me about FF6, and probably much more than
     almost everyone :-D
     Same thing about the Vanish/Doom/X-zone trick.
     You may have discovered them yourself but a lot of people already know about
     it. :-D"
    I got the following answer:
     Well I know I knew it since the game first came out so oh well I juss never
     seen it before in any faq or anything. But why didn't u meantion it in your faq
     because it is a good way to get all items in game faster.
    And that s not totally false :-|
    i should have put it in my faq before. This is corrected now :-D
    In the "Name" column you will find the name of the item (of course), in the
    "Nb" column the max number of these items you will be able to find in the WORLD
    OF RUINS! If it s "%" it means unlimited. If you see "*", it means Obsolete
    item (i think all the items marked with "?" too), they can be obtained
    unlimitedly before the WOR, but cannot be found after the Floating Continent
    So before going there check that you have at least one of every item marked ?
    or *. If the item is unlimited, you ll see in the third column the
    easyness/hardness to get it. In the last column you ll see how to get
    the item: if you can get it unlimitedly you ll see only the 1 or 2 best
    manner(s) to get it unlimitedly, else you ll see all the manners to get it. If
    you see <<, it means "wagering at the coliseum". Since a lot of them can only
    be obtained unlimitedly with the coliseum, i ll list the whole chain until the
    item can be easyly unlimitedly obtained. This list is only valable in the WOR,
    because some of the items you were able to buy in the WOB cannot be found after
    the floating continent.
    Third column legend:
    V=Very easy: the item can be bought or is directly waggered in the coliseum
            from a buyable item.
    E=Easy: the item can be easyly gotten by stealing/killing (the ennemy appears
            often and the item is easy to steal/get-by-killing) or the item is
            waggered from an easy or very easy item.
    H=Hard: wether the item is hard to steal/get, wether the ennemy is hard to find
            (exemple: in the Veldt, the Brachosaur...), or of course, the item must
            be waggered from a hard item.
    I=Impossible: the item is VERY HARD to get and searching it is very time
            consuming (especially if you play on a cartridge without Savestates).
    M=Morphing: the item is unique or obsolete, but is unlimited with MORPHING only

    Here you ll see all the items that can be gotten by morphing. The Chance column
    contains the chance (in quarters) of getting the item when you succesful in
    morphing, if you see 4, it means that each time you morph the ennemy(s) you ll
    get this item, 3 means you have 3 chances on 4, etc. The "Type" column (sorry i
    haven t found any better name :) ) contains the interest of morphing to get
    this item. I haven t listed any buyable items in this list. I have listed too
    in the list the items that you can have because morphing, for example by
    waggering an item that you can get only by morphing in the coliseum. These
    items have nothing in the number column.
    Third column explanation:
    O=Only way to get it unlimitedly: Morphing is the only way to get the item
               unlimitedly (the item has a "M" in the 3rd column of the above list)
    M=Morph is better: the item is unlimited even without morphing, but morphing is
               less time consuming and easyer to get it (If the item has a "H" or a
               "I" in the 3rd column above), and even if you don t get the wanted
               item, you can get other good stuff in the same morphing list.
    S=Same: it s about as long trying to get the item by morphing or with another

    X) ALL THE STATUS========================
    This part is from Master ZED (from the Game Faqs message board), and ONLY from
    him, I haven t done anything, but I don t know any faq wich has a so complete
    list of status, so i thought it was a good idea to put it here:
    Blind: nothing. If you get it, enjoy the kewl shades. :)
    Bserk: Always uses Fight, physical strength increased. A Raged character will
     only receive a strength increase when Bserk is cast upon him, as he can still
     use his special attack in Bserk w/ Rage.
    Charm: Muddle, but this cannot be blocked if the spell connects. Also, the
     inflicted will not show any graphical representation of the status.
    Clear: invisible, physical attacks won't touch you (as well as a couple odd
     Lore spells) but magical attacks are guaranteed to hit. Also makes *most*
     instant death spells able to strike those that normally can't be killed.
    Condemned: countdown timer above head. If it hits 0, Doom is cast on the
    Dance: character is using a dance and cannot be controlled. Can be cured by
     kiling the character or using Rippler.
    Float: Floats in air, some spells (especially Earth-elemental) won't touch
     you, and neither will Chocobop or Interceptor's attacks.
    Frozen: character is frozen, like Stop but longer. Can be healed by Fire-
     elemental spells.
    Haste: speeds up time so character doesnt take as long to ready for the next
     turn and execute commands.
    HP Leak: minor uncurable HP drain. Only found in the Phantasm spell.
    Image: Makes any physical attack w/out a perfect hit rate miss. Only lasts
     through a few attacks.
    Imp: can't use special abilities except Magic, but only for using Imp, and
     makes physical defenses by most armor weak. Also, this status allows you to
     use the physical defense and battle power stats of Imp equipment.
    Interceptor: Interceptor will block physical attacks occasionally, with a
     random chance of one of two of his attacks countering the enemy (Wild Fang or
    Life 3: character is revived upon infliction of Wounded. Doesn't work if
     character uses Spiraler or Pep Up.
    Magitek: uses Magitek commands. Most special abilites are unusable.
    Morph: attacks and defense all double in strength, only lasts for a limited
     time determined by how many Magic Points you've gained.
    Muddle: confused, attempts to strike the party on it's own. Monsters will use
     commands from the Control command list when Muddled.
    Mute: Cannot use Magic and Lores.
    Near Fatal: can use Near Fatal attacks. Shows up when you have 1/8 HP left.
    Petrify: petrified, character can accept no commands and takes 0 damage. Any
     status inflicted during Petrify is immediately nulled, but it is possible to
     have such things as zombie statues.
    Poison: causes poison-elemntal damage every few turns and drains HP while
     walking on the world map.
    Psyche: asleep. The Remedy spell or a physical attack will wake someone up.
    Rage: character gains elemental properties, statuses, status defenses and
     special properties of a particular monster, becomes uncontrollable using 1 of
     2 commands in a monster's rage command list every turn. Can be cured by either
     Wounded status or through Rippler.
    Reflect: bounces off spells back onto enemies. Also opens character to be
     struck by the Reflect??? lore.
    Regen: heals every few seconds. Will damage undead, that's why the Ribbon
     blocks this status.
    Safe: takes away 1/3 of all physical damage (only for attacks that don't
     ignore defense).
    Seizure: minor HP drain.
    Shell: takes away 1/3 of all magical damage (only for spells that don't ignore
    Slow: slows down time so character takes longer to ready for the next turn and
     execute commands. If you are permanently Haste (RunningShoes or Marvel Shoes)
     this status can't be inflicted regardless of whether you defend against it or
    Stop: character's gauge stops, cannot execute moves until Stop wears off.
    Wounded: dead. Must be revived. Can then be hit by such spells as Life or
     ChokeSmoke that are intended to hit dead targets.
    Zombie: HP drops to 0, becomes virtually invincible and uncontrollable. If
     only remaining characters are Zombies you're dead.
