I finished Final Fantasy X back in February so I am done with the game but I 
will continue to update the FAQ a little bit now and again.

NOTE: This version was not intended for the FFX International version; however 
the Dark Aeons section will cover that area. The other parts, as in monster HP 
and MP levels may vary depending on your version; this FAQ uses the original 
version.

DO NOT EMAIL ME LOOKING FOR BOSS HELP. The strategy under the boss information 
is what I used to beat him. If it does not work keep trying different 
combinations of my way or level up a lot. Those are good tips if you want to 
surpass an area in any RPG. 

However, if you have Boss Suggestions or ways you have beat them, submit them 
to me and I will look over them and decide if they need to be put up.  Try 
submitting alternatives to bosses who do not have one already, which is a good 
way to have them added.

[2.] INTRODUCTION
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hey everyone, this is my first FAQ, so I'll try to keep the abbreviations and 
slang to a minimum.  My goal of this FAQ is to be: non-cluttered, to the point, 
and effective.  Most guides these days have so many things a regular user 
doesn't even need, with so much ASCII art it is just confusing to look at.  I 
wanted to get away from this trend and make something helpful, not confusing. 
Plus, I have too much time on my hands at the time.

I MADE THIS IS AS SPOILER FREE AS POSSIBLE.

This is for the English version as for right now I only see 1 complete FAQ and 
it's in a translated style so.... here is the American Version.

******************************************************************************
USE CTRL + F TO SEARCH FOR AREAS IN THE FAQ. USE THE NUMBER CODES IN THE TABLE 
OF CONTENTS TO FIND THE PARTICULAR AREA YOU ARE LOOKING FOR, IF LOOKING IN THE 
WALKTHROUGH.

OTHERWISE JUST USE THE TABLE OF CONTENTS TO FIND THE AREA YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.

Now the chart below tells a brief description of which elements do more damage 
and how they relate.

EXAMPLE: Lets say I use Fire on an Ice elemental monster, the damage will be 
double the damage than if you did it on another monster. Let's say you used 
fire on a fire monster, 1 of 2 things could happen......
1) The damage will be really small
2) The monster will absorb the damage [changes damage into health]
Keep this in mind it might become a life and death situation.

[3.] THE CHARACTERS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here is your introduction to the characters even though you pretty meet 
everyone after the first hour or so.

#############
### Tidus ###
#############
Thrown into the future of 1000 years by Sin and no way back, this young man 
travels to seek a way back. He meets up with interesting new characters along 
the way. He is a well known Blitzball player and he uses a sword to fight off 
Fiends. Later on he becomes one of Yuna's guardians.
**NOTE: 1 of 3 people able to fight underwater.

**The Manuals Description: Tidus is a cheerful, rising Blitzball star playing 
for the Zanarkand Abes. He has long hated his father, who was a renowned 
player himself before his untimely death. Tidus's quick moves allow him to 
attack even the swiftest foes.

#############
### Wakka ###
#############
Wakka is a captain of a Blitzball team who hasn't won in forever. He is one of 
many of Yuna's' guardians. He uses a Blitzball to fight. His aim is awesome 
for airborne enemies.
**NOTE: 1 of 3 people able to fight underwater.

**The Manuals Description: Coach and captain of the local Blitzball team, the 
Besaid Aurochs. Wakka plans to retire from the sport after this year's 
tournament, so that he can devote himself fully to serving as Yuna's Guardian. 
His deadly Blitzball is especially useful for knocking down aerial enemies.

############
### Lulu ###
############
Lulu's attack is basically trash, but she makes up for it in her deadly black 
magic power. Her main strength is in her magic abilities while she lacks in 
physical damage. She is a great asset for everyone as are most magic users. 
She also is assigned to be Yuna's Guardian.

**The Manuals Description: One of Yuna's guardians. She and Wakka think of 
Yuna as a younger sister. Lulu's stoic and self-possessed nature makes her 
seem insensitive at times. She specializes in the art of black magic, using 
various dolls to help cast powerful spells.

############
### Yuna ###
############
Final Fantasy X is revolved around this girl, without this girl there would be 
no story, she is the Summoner and basic healer of the group, armed with loads 
of Guardians. She can get new summons by visiting new temples. Look in the 
Aeons section for more info. She also has a really bad attack hit, but heals 
most of the time. 

**The Manuals Description: Daughter of High Summoner Braska. Honest and 
determined, Yuna embarks on a pilgrimage to obtain the Final Aeon and defeat 
Sin. Yuna is learning the mystical art of summoning Aeons-powerful spirits of 
lore.

#####################
### Kimahri Ronso ###
#####################
Kimahri is from a race called the Ronso, basically a big scary wolf looking 
dude. He is made fun of by his colleagues because his horn is broken and he is 
shorter. He is fast and uses a lance to attack. On top of all that, he can 
learn magic spells from other people like Aqua Breath which are used in his 
Overdrive. In the past games, this has been used in several forms: Blue Mage, 
Enemy Skill Materia, Quistis Overdrive in FF8, etc. He is another Guardian of 
Yuna.

**The Manuals Description: A powerful warrior of the Ronso tribe. Kimahri has 
watched over Yuna from her youngest days. He speaks little, but is deeply 
devoted to Yuna and serves her loyally as a guardian. Kimahri can learn enemy 
skills with his Lancet ability.

#############
### Auron ###
#############
Auron is a big hitter and slow at that. He carries the sword abilities like 
Steiner in FF9, so he is very useful. Use to be Jecht's guardian [Tidus's 
father] he joins Yuna to search for some answers of his own WHILE being a 
guardian of Yuna.

**The Manuals Description: The legendary guardian who, together with High 
Summoner Braska, defeated Sin ten years ago. A man of few words, he guides 
Yuna and Tidus on their mission to vanquish Sin once more. He swings his 
gigantic sword with such power that even the toughest fiends are cut asunder.

#############
### Rikku ###
#############
Rikku is a girl from a race known as the Al Bhed. The Al Bhed speaks an 
entirely different language from the rest of the world. She VERY useful, even 
though her attack is something to question, her skills are great, she can only 
use certain items and can steal/mug them from enemies.

Her Overdrive allows you to mix 2 things together to make a more powerful item, 
or a really good items such as a Trio of 9999 (lets everyone hit 9999) or an 
Ultra NullAll (Casts all the Nul's on everyone + Focus's and Cheer's]. She can 
also take apart machina while stealing from them, instantly killing them.
**NOTE: 1 of 3 people able to fight underwater.

**The Manuals Description: A young Al Bhed girl. Her personality is upbeat and 
positive, and she is not afraid to speak her mind. She works hard to restore 
her outcast people to their former glory. Rikku handles mechanical enemies 
with ease, and can steal items from enemies, too.

[5.] FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
This section is a compiled list of the most frequently asked questions in all 
of my time in making this FAQ and after. Read these before emailing me your 
problems.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1) In the part where I am supposed to get the Celestial Mirror, that stupid 
lady won't move? WHY!?

**ANSWER: Yes, I've had tons of people flood my email with questions about 
this, the solution to it is: You MUST talk to the Mother and Father again 
THOROUGHLY (more than one time) then that lady will move.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2) Can you get past the limitation of 9999 HP and 999 for MP?

**ANSWER: Yes! If you manage to get 30x Wings to Discovery [bribe them from 
Malboro's] and customize it into your armor for a Break HP Limit added to it, 
you will get the ability.  As for 999 MP Break, 30x Three Stars will break the 
MP barrier. 

If you unlock the monster, Earth Eater, in the Monsters Arena (Check Monster 
Arena section) he will give you 60x Three Stars. I recommend use for Lulu and 
Yuna as they are your main magic users.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3)  Can I get the Jecht Shot again if I forgot it on the S.S. Winno?

**ANSWER: Yes, Sadly not till the end of the game when you get the Airship. 
Return to Kilika and take the ship to Luca.  There you will be given the 
chance again. Read the tutorial and good luck.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4) Where can I get all the Hidden Aeons?

**ANSWER: Check the Aeons Section.  The hidden Aeons are Anima, Yojimbo, and 
the Magus Sisters.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5)  If I miss any Destruction Spheres in the Cloister of Trials can I return 
to the temples to get them?

**ANSWER: Yes. However, if you have the International version of the game the 
Dark Aeon's will be blocking the entrance and you MUST beat them to get back 
in.  Refer to the Dark Aeon's section of this FAQ for more information.

=thanks to: COR121=
I was just letting you know that to get Anima, You DO NOT have to go back to
Bevelle, because well, one: you can't, and two: it isn't necessary to get the 
hidden treasure, because the destruction sphere was already used to complete 
the main puzzle.

**NOTE: Bevelle is the only temple in the game where the destruction sphere is 
required to proceed within the game. Therefore you cannot miss it even if you 
wanted to. In which case, this sphere will always be lit up at Anima's temple.

You cannot re-enter the Bevelle Cloister of Trials later in the game.

This list goes by the point of view of when you walk in.
 ---------------------
| BESAID    | BEVELLE |
|-----------+---------|
| MACALANIA | DJOSE   |
|-----------+---------|
| ZANARKAND | KILIKA  |
 ---------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6)  I go back to the temple but guards chase me out, how can I get in?

**ANSWER: When you get the airship go to Highbridge, after the events play out, 
then the temples will be accessible.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7) I can't get past the guy who is blocking the Caladbolg!

**ANSWER: I've had lots of reports where people have obtained the Sun Sigil, 
but they cannot get the weapon.  If you get off your Chocobo or save or do 
anything like that after you win you won't be able to get it unless you beat 
it again.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8) What does Trio of 9999 do and how do I get it?

**ANSWER: It makes your entire party hit for 9999 damage, to get it you need 
to use Rikku's Mix Overdrive and mix: Bomb Core + Dark Matter to get a Trio of 
9999.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
9) Can you tell me the ending?

**ANSWER: Ummm, No.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10) If you have Break Damage Limit on your weapon does it affect magic damage?

**ANSWER: Yes, It does.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
11)  In the Blitzball tutorial it says something like Techcopy? Why does it 
never show up?

**ANSWER:  This too puzzled me. The fact is you must set certain people to 
watch an opposing team mate to learn something. If they use the ability you 
have a chance to copy it and a message will popup saying TECHCOPY.  You press 
X at that moment and you learn it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
12)  Your directions suck, why?

**ANSWER: First, I wrote them how I saw them. Secondly why don't you figure it 
out? If you're lost, re-read and if you see anything that I describe that 
looks similar to what you are seeing, then it's probably it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
13) I got the Ultimate Weapons and the Sigils and Crests but the Ultimate
Weapon still says NO AP option on it. What am I doing wrong?

**ANSWER: Once you get to them, go to where the Cloudy Mirror was upgraded to 
a Celestial Mirror. Talk to the big flower thing and it will ask you to 
present the "Celestial Weapons" those are the Ultimate Weapons. Present them 
twice, once for the Crest and once for the Sigil.  All of them will be 
combined into 1 to form the actual weapon.  It is possible to only add 1 part 
of the weapon at a time and make it sort of useful until you get both parts. 
However, it just wouldn't be as effective as getting them all.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
14) If I missed Belgemine to get the Summoner's Soul is there anyway to get it 
again?

**ANSWER: =thanks to: jt_bounds & Kyk2496=
If you miss the Summoner's Soul just go to the temple where you get the Magus
Sisters and fight Belgemine and she will give it to you. You also get the
Aeon's Soul if you missed it also.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
15) Where is your walkthrough of the Zanarkand Visit #2? 

**ANSWER: Well its up in the Aeons section under Anima where I thought it 
would make more sense to put, but I'll add it here also:

####################################################################
######### Cloister of Trials - Zanarkand Temple #2 Visit ###########
####################################################################
Zanarkand is the one you need. Go back into the temple you will meet Yuna's 
Rival, after the little talk go back in and step on all 3 white squares in the 
first room and all the white squares in the big one, if you mess it up all the 
white squares in both rooms will reset. This opens up a Destruction sphere 
grab it and put it into the right side of the panel in the big room. A 
treasure will open up and you will get the Magistral Rod. Go back to the Baaj 
Temple and go back to the room they will now open up a door for you to make 
him accessible. You will also learn a little more about Seymour.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
16) What level do I need to be to be able to learn Jecht Shot 2?

**ANSWER: Any level as long as you have all of Tidus's key abilities and the 
first Jecht Shot.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
17)  Those damn Dark Aeons are in the front of the temples and I can't beat 
them, how am I supposed to get past these?!!

**ANSWER: Okay I get this question daily. First of all, if they are there I 
doubt there is going to be a secret to get past them or else, what's the point 
of being of them being there? 

Second of all, if you can't beat them the solution is get better. Get as many 
Ultimate Weapons as you can, Break HP limit, Auto-life, and with Auto-life it 
makes virtually anything beatable.  The problem with this is that after you 
have the stuff necessary to beat them the other Aeons may seem pointless to 
get.  

It is HIGHLY suggested you follow this guide for the Cloister of Trials so you 
don't have this problem.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
18)  How do I beat _______, I just can't seem to beat him!

**ANSWER: The strategy under the boss information is what I used to beat him. 
If it does not work keep trying different combinations of my way or level up a 
lot. Those are good tips if you want to surpass an area in any RPG.

DO NOT EMAIL ME LOOKING FOR BOSS HELP, PLEASE.  However, if you have Boss 
Suggestions or ways you have beat them, submit them to me and I will look over 
them and decide if they need to be put up.  Try submitting alternatives to 
bosses who do not have one already.

[6.] STATUS EFFECTS
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
As most of you know, throughout the Final Fantasy Series (and most RPG's) 
there has been Status Effects which cause harm to your character.  Each effect 
has its own effect and its own treatment.

ideal in some situations.

[7.] The Sphere Board
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
The Sphere Board is quite unique to the Final Fantasy series. Forget about 
experience, they have thrown that away; instead they replaced it with AP or 
Ability Points. When you get enough AP you will get 1 Sphere Level. To get AP 
you must battle monsters, which also leave Spheres, These spheres are used to 
boost your characters stats. To access the Sphere Board, hit the Triangle 
Button, and select Sphere Grid. A node is basically an empty sphere. Use a 
sphere level after you get one, move a space and then use a sphere, that's how 
easy it is. Also the sphere locks lets you permanently destroy a node labeled 
Lvl 1, Lvl 2, and so on.
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~~-~-~-~-
1 Sphere Level = Move forward 1 node OR up to 4 nodes backward that you have 
been over.
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~~-~-~-~-
Each sphere contributes to certain empty nodes which are:
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~~-~-~-~-
Power Sphere          = HP, Attack, Defense
Speed Sphere          = Hit %, Evade %, Agility
Mana Sphere           = MP, Magic Attack, Magic Defense
Ability Sphere        = White and Black Magic, Specials, Skills
Lvl. 1-4 Lock Spheres = Removes Level Sphere Grid Locks
Fortune Sphere        = Luck node
Return Sphere         = Returns any sphere you have been to
Teleport Sphere       = Teleports you to anywhere anyone else has
Attribute Sphere      = Learns a Stat ability someone else has
Special Sphere        = Learns a Special ability someone else has
Skill Sphere          = Learns a Skill ability someone else has
W. Magic Sphere       = Learns any White Magic ability someone else has
B. Magic Sphere       = Learns any Black Magic ability someone else has
Master Sphere         = Learns any ability someone else has
HP Sphere             = Turns node into an inactivated HP node
MP Sphere             = Turns node into an inactivated MP node
Strength Sphere       = Turns node into an inactivated Strength node
Defense Sphere        = Turns node into an inactivated Defense node
Magic Sphere          = Turns node into an inactivated Magic node
Magic Defense Sphere  = Turns node into an inactivated M. Defense node
Agility Sphere        = Turns node into an inactivated Agility node
Evasion Sphere        = Turns node into an inactivated Evasion node
Accuracy Sphere       = Turns node into an inactivated Accuracy node
Luck Sphere           = Turns node into an inactivated Luck node
Clear Sphere          = Empties node
Friend Sphere         = Teleports you to where another character is
Warp Sphere           = Takes you to ANY node

That is a lot of spheres, huh? Well look out for these as most of them are 
hidden all over Spira, in chests, monsters, shops.

[8.] THE STORYLINE
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Well I guess I have to write this since some people want to know about the 
game in advance so.......

Final Fantasy X takes place in a city called Zanarkand where a very popular 
Blitzball player, Tidus, will be playing a tournament against many other teams. 
During the Blitzball game, it is violently interrupted as a huge monster 
emerged from the sea known as Sin. Sin throughout the story is said to be 
mans' punishment to using 'machina' or more simply called machines. As Tidus 
is about to land a Sphere Shot, he spots a monster as it starts to hurl 
fireballs and destruction all around. Amongst the chaos he sees Auron, who 
leads him out of the town, where he faces monsters ravaging the city. As Auron 
and Tidus destroy these monsters, Tidus leaps to for his life and almost 
misses, but Auron helps him and he is engulfed in a swirling cloud.

He wakes up in ruins 1000 years into the future, he goes to a temple looking 
thing and is attacked by monsters, which of course is way too powerful for him 
to defeat.  Tidus realizes he is no match and makes a run for it. After 
meeting a mysterious woman she captures Tidus and takes him aboard an Al Bhed 
ship.  

Later you wake up near an island know as Besaid, where a group of people are 
playing Blitzball. How will Tidus get back to his time and what is Sin's main 
purpose, what is it trying to achieve?  How will he function in this new world?

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
[9.] BLITZBALL
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
#####################
#### Information ####
#####################
Blitzball is a game you will find all over Spira not to mention a tournament 
you will be participating in later in the game. A lot of people play this, to 
play tournaments or leagues by yourself you can just activate it on the Save 
Sphere, just select "Play Blitzball".... now for the help.

###################
#### Game Help ####
###################
Well Blitzball is very complicated and is better if you have the tutorial 
which you will get before the big tournament in Luca with Wakka, after that 
you may access it any time in the menu. But you won't need to know anything 
about Blitzball until that point because all the Blitzball stuff will be 
played automatically or by movies.

Okay for game starts there are 3 different types: League, Tournament, and 
Exhibition League and tournament are the only things you can go into and get 
EXP, Exhibition is for practice matches. Select any to play it really doesn't 
matter, because you will probably keep the same team until you run across good 
players. A few players I have found to be great are Rin, Wedge, Brother, and 
Jasseu. Be careful though, the people will require a contract to play and the 
only way to renew them is to pay GIL.

Now selecting characters comes in, you may choose 6 characters, 2 forwards, 
left and right sides, 2 defenders left and right sides, a middle fielder who 
gets the all at Blitzoff, and of Course the Goalie. Usually defenders should 
have high speed, very good attack power [AT], and good passing power [PA]. 
This prevents them from getting close enough to take a big shot at you. For 
the 2 Forwards try to get them a good shot [SH] and endurance [EN] to 
withstand most attacks until you can take a shot. I automatically put Tidus on 
the right forward because usually a lot of bad people guard there. For the 
middle fielder pick a good passer [PA], VERY good endurance [EN] to get the 
ball off. Last but not least the goalie; pick someone with lots of Catching 
[CA] power which will block other attacks.

Confirm this section and go to the next, which is Tech selection. Only at LVL 
3 you will gain ability to set a Tech, Tidus already comes with Sphere Shot, 
and if you completed the little Jecht Shot thing on the ship you will have 
that. Techs are basically special abilities which can allow you to shoot a 
swerve ball making it harder for goalies to catch to tackling people and 
knocking them out or poisoning them, that's all there is to it.

Confirm this section and now you get to set people to people like guards if 
you will. This is how you get new TECHS, mark anyone you like who is a 
challenge, or not just to learn the abilities which is quite handy. You are 
now ready to play. Play some games and you will get the JIST of it. During the 
game you must press TRIANGLE to control your characters, or to set the 
waypoint mode, which is the thing we just did.

###################
#### Tech Copy ####
###################
A message [after Lvl 3] will appear if you put guard a person or follow them, 
it will say tech copy and PRESS X up in the corner. Doing this will enable you 
to learn it or, if you are too low of a level you will not, if you miss the 
opportunity you will miss the abilities. Getting abilities is a must, this 
will be the only way to survive later in the game. To activate tech copy you 
must pick a guy to guard on the last screen of the Blitzball selection.

########################
#### Status Effects ####
########################
You can actually get his by status effects in this minigame which lower your 
stats or hits you with some undesirable abilities. Effects include abilities 
like Wither, which affects a certain part of your stats, Poison, which rapidly 
drops your HP, Sleep, which knocks out a guy until he wakes up. The only way 
to counter these devastating moves is to learn Anti-Venom/2 and Anti-Wither/2 
and so on.

I hope this gives you some understanding on how Blitzball works.  The game 
should be able to explain it better since it has actual video and on screen 
help.

tournament prize list, but when you win they don't get it or they can't learn 
it. The simple fact is: you need all of Tidus's key abilities (Including the 
first Jecht Shot) for you to be able to learn it. =

[10.] AEONS
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Here is some brief info about the Aeons. First of all Aeons are like the 
monsters of the past Final Fantasy's if you haven't played them, they are 
based on Mythological creatures. They use to be called Guardian Forces, Espers, 
and Summons in the past games. When they switched to FF9 they kept the Aeon 
name, I guess they liked the Aeon bit. In FFX Aeons are creatures which you 
can control like any regular character. The difference is, Aeons are immune to 
all status effects but CURSE. They can heal themselves through they're element 
type:
EXAMPLE: Ifrit is Fire so if you cast a Fire spell on him he will absorb it 
and use it to heal. 

This is the best way not to use lots of great items trying to make him learn 
Cure spells. Also they have 2 other commands which you should learn:

SHIELD: Takes a significant amount of damage down but Overdrive charges slow.

BOOST: Takes more damage and boosts your Overdrive up quite a bit. These are 
very valuable in keeping them alive. That and elemental specific healing 
techniques.

The only way to revive them is to defeat some monsters in a certain times in 
battle OR to touch a Save Sphere.

**NOTE: Yojimbo is not a controlled character. Will deal damage based on the 
amount of GIL you give him, if you give him 0 GIL he will leave, I guess 
that's his dismiss :)

TEMPLE: Baaj Temple / Coordinates: X: 11,16 / Y: 57,63
UNIQUE ATTACK: Pain
UNIQUE ATTACK EFFECT: High chance of death, high recovery time
OVERDRIVE: Oblivion
OVERDRIVE EFFECT: Major damage to all enemies
OBTAINED BY: Go to Baaj Temple and defeat Geosgaeno. He uses death attacks and 
stone attacks use Stoneproof and Deathproof. Go underwater to the temple 
entrance and go in. In the 6 temples of the game they each give Destruction 
Spheres. Each destruction sphere leads to a treasure for anima to be 
accessible by.

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
**NOTE: Bevelle is the only temple in the game where the destruction sphere is 
required to proceed within the game, therefore you cannot miss it even if you 
wanted to. In which case, this sphere will always be lit up at Anima's temple.

You cannot re-enter the Bevelle Cloister of Trials later in the game.

This list goes by the point of view of when you walk in.

##################################################################
## (F07) ## Cloister of Trials - Zanarkand Temple #2 Visit #######
##################################################################
Zanarkand is the one you need. Go back into the temple you will meet Yuna's 
Rival, after the little talk go back in and step on all 3 white squares in the 
first room and all the white squares in the big one, if you mess it up all the 
white squares in both rooms will reset. This opens up a Destruction sphere 
grab it and put it into the right side of the panel in the big room. A 
treasure will open up and you will get the Magistral Rod. Go back to the Baaj 
Temple and go back to the room they will now open up a door for you to make 
him accessible. You will also learn a little more about Seymour.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You will also learn a little more about Seymour.

=thanks to: No1kornkid4eva for making me realize I had to group this 
separately=

=thanks to: COR121=
=I was just letting you know that to get Anima, You DO NOT have to go back to 
Bevelle, because well, one, you can't, and two, it isn't necessary to get the 
hidden treasure, because the destruction sphere was already used to complete 
the main puzzle.=

[11.] DARK AEONS

powerful attacks that can easily kill you in an instant.

NOTE1: Like your Aeons they are also immune to status effects except Curse and 
is also immune to Breaks.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
NOTE2: Just before they get Overdrive it should be noted that each time you 
should cast AUTO-LIFE on all your characters. Ribbon DOES NOT prevent KO /
Death, but Deathproof DOES.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
NOTE3: ZANMATO CAN KILL THESE IN 1 HIT SO PRAY FOR IT WHEN YOU GET YOJIMBO -

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-

<Mogg 13-42> I recommend that you have an Accuracy of at least 80, if not 
repeatedly cast Aim on yourself. Cast Hastega immediately at the beginning of 
the battle. Set your Overdrive Mode to Stoic (this is your best choice) Start 
attacking after that, use Tidus' Blitz Ace Overdrive and Wakka's Attack Reels. 
He'll die soon enough.

Dark Valefor uses Energy Ray first then immediately follows with Energy Blast 
once his Overdrive gauge is full. Save yourself with Auto-Life.

BOSS: Dark Ifrit
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
HP:      1,400,000

Location: Entrance to Al Bhed Home, a man will ask you to help him find his 
daughter. You must choose yes and he'll ask you to look by the cliff. You'll 
see Dark Ifrit there.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-

<Mogg 13-42> It is recommended that all members of your battle party has Auto-
Life and Hastega with them. This will be easy if you have the Fire Eater 
ability. Now, cast Hastega on yourself, then Auto-Life on all your party 
members. His physical attacks are pretty powerful so you should also have 
Protect, but even so you'll still die if your HP isn't high enough. If you 
have the Fire Eater ability, Meteorstrike won't hurt you but heal you instead. 
Recast Auto Life if necessary and continue attacking. Once his Overdrive gauge 
is full, summon an Aeon to block.

BOSS: Dark Ixion
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
HP:      1,200,000
AP:      20,000 (normal) 30,000 (overkill)
Items:   Dark Matter x4
Equip:   Ochre Bangle / Ochre Bracer
Steal:   Stamina Tablet x2
Attacks:
1st Battle: Thundaja - 4000+ damage on 1 character
            Aerospark - 20,000+ 1 character
            Physical Attacks - causes Sleep

2nd Battle: Aerospark - Instant kill (99,999 damage) on 1 character.
            Thor's Hammer - 35,000+ damage on all characters
            Physical Attacks - causes Sleep & Full Break

Immunities: Absorbs Lightning, Immune against Ice & Fire,
            Half damage against Water.

Recommended Armor Abilities:  
            Sleepproof, Auto-Phoenix, Break HP Limit, Lightning Eater

Recommended Weapon Abilities: 
            Break Damage Limit, Counterattack, Magic Booster, 1 MP Cost

Location: Talk to the soldier under the lightning rod tower, North of the 
agency. Once you do, he'll run off and call a summoner who will then summon 
Dark Ixion.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

<Mogg 13-42> Your very first move should be Hastega then Auto-Life on all your 
party members. Lightning Eater will protect you from Thundaja, but not from 
Aerospark. Remember that there is no way you can prevent Full Break. Now, with 
that in mind start attacking and Doublecast Ultima as much as you can. If you 
have your overdrives available, don't use it just yet, save it for later. His 
Overdrive will only be Aerospark.

When you fight him for the second time, cast Hastega on yourself then Auto-
Life on all your party members. Unleash your overdrives and keep Double-
casting Ultima. Once he does Aerospark, one of your characters will die for 
sure, but with Auto-Life you shouldn't worry. When his Overdrive gauge is full 
it is important that you immediately summon an Aeon to block if your HP isn't 
high enough.

HP:      1,100,000

Items:   Dark Matter x2
Equip:   Rod of Ice / Excalibur
Steal:   Mana Tablet x4

            Half damage against Fire

Recommended Armor Abilities:  
            Break HP Limit, Auto Phoenix, Deathproof

Recommended Weapon Abilities: 
            Break Damage Limit, Double Overdrive, 1 MP Cost, 
            Counterattack / Magic Booster

Location: Macalania Temple Entrance. A Guido Guard will block your path and 
summon Dark Shiva.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-

<Mogg 13-42> It is required for your party to have high defense, otherwise she 
will simply kick you and you're dead. Cast Hastega first, Aim, then Auto-Life 
on your entire party, start attacking with Quick Hit after that. Her Heavenly 
Strike causes Death, but with Deathproof you'll be fine. Recast Auto-Life if 
necessary. Once her Overdrive gauge is full, summon an Aeon immediately to 
save yourself.

Once she's dead, an infinite supply of Guado Guardians will emerge from the 
temple, so never bother to think about killing all of them. Just run.

HP:      4,000,000
AP:      30,000 (normal) 40,000 (overkill)
Items:   Dark Matter
Equip:   Super Goalie
Steal:   Twin Stars x2
Attacks: Physical Attacks - 12,000 - 13,000 damage on 1 character.

         Impulse - 6,000+ damage in addition to Slow, Full Break &
                   Petrify on all characters.

         Mega Flare - Massive damage to all characters, that is if
                      You're not inflicted with Full Break, which never
                      happens.

Immunities: Half damage against all Elements including Holy

Recommended Armor Abilities:
            Ribbon, Auto-Phoenix, Break HP Limit.

Recommended Weapon Abilities: 
            Break Damage Limit, Magic Booster, Double Overdrive, 1 MP Cost

Location: Zanarkand Dome. (The place where you fought Yunalesca) Dark Bahamut 
will be waiting there.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-

<Mogg 13-42> This battle is long and hard. First cast Hastega then Auto-Life 
on your party, Protect will help too. Start attacking with Quick Hit after 
that.  Make sure your party ALWAYS has Auto-Life, meaning when a character 
dies and is revived, recast Auto-Life immediately. Be very prepared because 
once his Overdrive gauge is full, he'll use Impulse then immediately follow 
with Mega Flare, so make sure your HP is high enough to survive from Impulse 
to preserve your Auto-Life, because you'll definitely die from Mega Flare.

         Wakizashi - 22,000+ damage on all characters

         Zanmato - Instant death on all characters

Immunities: Regular Damage against Elements including Holy

Recommended Armor Abilities:  
            Ribbon, Auto Phoenix, Break HP Limit

Recommended Weapon Abilities:

Location: Cavern of the Stolen Fayth, step on the teleport panel to get to the 
back of the cave then try to go back out. A summoner will block your path and 
call Dark Yojimbo.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-

<Mogg 13-42> You have to fight him 5 times by going after the summoner towards 
the entrance of the cave. Set your Overdrive mode to Stoic. Now, cast Hastega 
then Auto-Life on your first turn as usual. Start attacking with Quick Hit and 
keep Doublecasting Ultima. Once his Overdrive gauge is full, summon an Aeon to 
block Zanmato because if you don't you'll die and reviving won't be possible 
even with Auto-Life. Use your Overdrives as much as possible.

There will be a Save Sphere here, but saving will be useless since if you load 
you'll have to start over again. So just use it to recover your HP and MP.

<Mogg 13-42> This fight is extremely long and quite hard too. Cast Hastega  
then Auto-Life on your party and start attacking with Quick Hit. Again, make 
sure all your party members ALWAYS has Auto-Life. Just summon an Aeon once his 
Overdrive gauge is full to block his DEADLY attack. Also, remember that his 
Pain will kill a character even with Deathproof, your Aeons are not immune to 
this as well. Rely on Auto-Life to revive you from Mega-Graviton.

Location: From the North End of Mi'ihen Highroad, go North to Mushroom Rock.
You'll see 2 summoners there, approach them.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-

<Mogg 13-42> You can run from them and beat them one by one. But lets assume 
you got caught by all 3.

The most important thing to remember here is that they start with a full 
Overdrive gauge. First cast Hastega then Auto-Life on your party. After that 
summon an Aeon at Overdrive immediately, preferably Anima and have him do 
Oblivion and at the same time save you from Delta Attack. Now, pummel Mindy 
with your character overdrives (Blitz Ace and a perfect 2-Hit Attack Reels) to 
get rid of her quickly and prevent further Delta Attacks. Once one of them is 
gone, the two left will do Mega-Graviton when their Overdrive gauges are full. 
Make sure all your party members ALWAYS have Auto-Life, since its hard to 
predict what they will do next.

If it so happened that you got tired of killing each one of them manually, 
just grand summon Yojimbo and pay him lots of GIL (I paid him 1.7 million) and 
hope that he'll do Zanmato to kill one of them instantly.

<Mogg 13-42> He's extremely tough! First cast Hastega then Auto-Life on all 
your party members. Now, your primary concern is to get rid of the left arm 
quickly since it carries the biggest threat. (Tetra-Graviton) Once its gone, 
Double cast Ultima repeatedly. Summon your Aeons at Overdrive, especially 
Anima and Magus Sisters. The right arm will cast Mighty Guard on all the parts 
after a few turns so be ready to use Dispel or Purifying Salt to remove it. 
But remember that the arms regenerate so you'll have to kill it again.

Another alternative in defeating Penance is to grand summon Yojimbo and pay 
him lots of GIL again then hope for Zanmato. This occurs randomly and the 
worst thing is, he does Wakizashi the moment he appears, thus he dies even 
before you get to pay him for Zanmato.

When you can move talk to everyone, and they all ask for his auto-graph after 
a couple minutes of getting through them, you start your Blitzball tournament 
with a good movie with hardcore music. Once you regain control, run and you 
will meet up with Auron, follow him, and talk to some people if you like. Keep 
going, and you will be attacked, Auron will give you a weapon.

These battles are pretty straight forward. Just keep attacking the front 
monsters to bust through ignore the back ones for now. Just keep going and you 
will soon run up to a boss.

Pretty easy, just use Auron's Overdrive and you will most likely kill the 
surrounding little monsters, you shouldn't heal because a Save Sphere is 
coming up and all the Save Spheres will heal all your characters [and soon 
Aeons]. Kill him and move on.
================================================

Continue and save your game, and just keep fighting the bunch of little 
monsters. Keep going until you see a machine to the right knock it a few times 
and it will blow off the bridge.

Now you end up underwater sort of and they will give you instructions [use O 
to dive] Tidus finds himself in what seems to be water. Press and hold O to 
dive, and look for a little kid dude that has the grim reaper type suit.

When you wake up in the water, there should be a path that leads up to some

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Search around there for 200 GIL. Follow the red arrow and go to where the Save 
Sphere is, save and go left and grab the treasure chest for a Potion.

Walk across the bridge and it will break, and then you get attacked. Kill 
those 2 and the big fishy comes!

This battle may seem hard at first but it's not that complicated. Just take 
out the 2 other monsters around him and just keep hitting the big fish until 
you knock off around 80 - 100 HP. Once you knock out that much HP Tidus it 
will engage a sequence where Tidus runs. 
================================================

Now you are in ruins, head up the stairs, check out the middle and it will say 
it's really cold in here, so time to find some heat! Save, and head to the 
bottom left door and take the Flint which will start the fire, next head to 
the top door and grab the Bouquet of Flowers, now head to the middle and start 
the fire. Your fire will eventually burn out and...

and joins the fight. Her name is labeled as "????" for right now. Steal from 
Klikk to get a Grenade and then use it on him. Keep stealing with the girl and 
keep on with the physical attacks with Tidus. Klikk should be down in no time.

When you gain control you will be on a ship, they speak a language you cannot 
translate right now, but we can change that throughout the game. If you talk 
to the guy on the left he will give you 3x Potions. On the right side of the 
ship, grab the Al Bhed Primer Vol. I(1) and now we are ready to go. Talk to 
the girl in the suit. She teaches you how to use the Sphere Grid through a 
tutorial. She then tells you they are below a ship and tells Tidus goes in. 
The path is fairly linear, just follow the red arrow on the minimap and use O 
to dive. You will encounter random enemies during this time underwater, try to 
level up a little bit.

Once you get in, check out the Save Sphere and save. After you have saved, go 
to the computer panel and press X to open it, you will be attacked by some 
monsters. Just steal some Grenades and go through them. Go up to the mystery 
girl and you will be attacked yet again, this time by a big 'ol squid.

Have Tidus use any attack. Have Rikku use Grenades, if you run out of them you 
can just steal some more from Tros. Eventually he will swim to the opposite 
side and then you get an extra command called "Stand by" where you can wait 
and gain HP. Just Stand by and he will eventually attack you from behind. 

Just Stand by again and go back to what you were doing and eventually he might 
swim back again, this time you can get a Pincer Attack on him. Continue 
bombarding him until he falls.
================================================

Return to the ship with the red arrow on the mini-map again or just follow the 
chick. When you get back to the ship an event will occur. When you wake up you 
will find yourself at Besaid Island.

After you show off, talk to Wakka [the Blitzball captain] and follow him into 
town. When he knocks you off, dive and you will find some good items after 
that, make your way to the town fighting off fiends and fishies. When you get 
to the road you will meet up with some people.

Continue on the road and fight the baddies out the Crusader's Lodge.

Find and talk to Wakka, and he will tell you to go to the Temple. Before you 
do go, go to the first tent and there is a Phoenix Down.

Head to the temple and talk to everyone then go back out and go to Wakka's 
tent again and take a nap. After that go into the temple and talk to everyone, 
then wait for the scene where Tidus bursts in.

######################################################
######### Cloister of Trials - Besaid Temple #########
######################################################
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Okay now they will give you a tutorial on the Cloister of Trials if you 
skipped it I will briefly explain. 

Basically in each temple there is a Cloister of Trials, which houses puzzles 
and a Destruction Sphere. There is a Destruction Sphere in every temple. Get 
all of them and it will reward you later on.  Every Cloister at the end will 
reward you with an Aeon.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Examine the Glyph on the wall and watch it open the door, Go down the stairs 
and view the glyph with the sphere under it. Grab the glowing Glyph Sphere 
from the holder & go down the stairs. Put it in the door and then take the 
sphere back out. Keep going till you see a holder on the left, put it in to 
reveal a sphere. Don't take it just yet and go down the hall, examine the 
words to reveal a glyph. Touch the glyph and go into the hidden area.

Take the Besaid Sphere and put it into a pedestal and a new glyph should 
appear. Examine the glyph again and a hidden area comes up. Take the sphere 
and push the Pedestal into the next room but not all the way and insert the 
Besaid Sphere. Now go get the Destruction Sphere, return to the area where the 
Besaid Sphere was with all those lines and put it in. An area opens up with a 
treasure; take it to receive a Rod of Wisdom. Now push the pedestal in until 
it locks.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Confusing, Easy? I want to assure they get more annoying. Well these are 
important; these are where you will get all of your future Aeons.

Next, go into the door and you meet up with a lot of new characters. Name the 
Aeon whatever. Then just talk to everyone until you appear back into the 
temple main lobby place. Then return into the town. Watch the next event. You 
will learn how to use Aeons soon, just use them like a regular person, accept 
to return to your regular party press RIGHT where the main screen is and go to 
Dismiss. Heal them at Spheres.

Go talk to Yuna and then Wakka. Once you wake up go to the lodge and check the 
front for Al Bhed Primer Vol. II(2). Buy some potions so you have at least 10+.

Go outside and talk to Wakka, he will give you a cool looking sword with like 
water in it. It is called the Brotherhood. Equip it if you haven't and you 
will get Yuna [Summoner] and Lulu [Black Magic user] added to your party.

Just follow the path and tutorials for battling will come up. Keep following 
the path. When you reach the top go over and talk to the praying Wakka [right], 
he will explain about the prayer.

Keep walking and one of Yuna's Guardians will like go crazy on you.

Attack with normal hits until you run low on HP. Just heal with a potion don't 
use a lot of potions though. Take some damage, unleash your Overdrive whenever 
it fills and you will be fine.
================================================

Kimahri will decide to join your party. Follow the path until you reach the 
docks. Talk to everyone and they will all give you items. Get on the boat and 
head out.

Speak to Wakka, and head downstairs and look for O'aka he is a very good 
merchant indeed if you know how to use him, if you invest a lot he will sell 
things cheaper than shops and possibly rare items... if you give him a tiny 
bit he will sell high. Pick whichever you can. Go into the room where everyone 
is (left of O'aka) because in there is the Al Bhed Primer Vol. III(3). After 
that return to the top of the ship

After resting or just exploring the ship go to where the Blitzball team is. 
Talk to the Blitzball team, and check everything out. After you're done taking 
a break, make sure you have lots of Potions and Phoenix Downs. great. It is in 
the Power Room. After that, head on deck and talk to Yuna.

Sin will appear again so get ready for a fight, too. 

After the crew harpoons Sin, you're taken into battle.

================================================
BOSS: Sin's Fin & Sinscales

GIL: (Sin's Fin): 100   (Sinscales): 22
STEAL: Nothing
WEAKNESS: Lightning (+50%)
ITEMS: 1x Mana Sphere

If you want lots of AP just sit there and keep killing Sinscales for 2 AP a 
piece. If Tidus has learned Cheer, use it. Try to get everyone to hit at least 
1 time in the battle. Pull out Tidus, Wakka, and Lulu. Now have Tidus focus in 
on the Sinscales and have Lulu and Wakka concentrate on Sin, now if anyone 
gets low on health switch Lulu out and bring in Yuna to cast Cure. Or if you 
like, summon Valefor. Just use Thunder on everything since you're in the water 
it should increase your damage. If Valefor's Overdrive fills, use the Energy 
Blast.
================================================

After that I hope you packed the Potions and whatnot. After the harpoon breaks 
off Wakka goes in after Tidus and they find themselves in yet ANOTHER battle. 
Accept only with Tidus and Wakka since those are the only 2 right now to fight 
underwater.

================================================

Okay with only 2 characters this might be hard, but it's up to you. First use 
Cheer. Potions will come in handy, but I recommend you learn it soon if you do 
not have it. Use Wakka's Darkness Attack to blind him so you don't have to 
heal as much. The Blind effect should only last 3 turns, so keep it up on him. 
Normal attacks work pretty well. It's better to just ignore the Piranha, even 
if they are getting annoying. Just ignore them and heal with those Potions.

LANCET: Ragora (Seed Cannon)
:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:

After you regain control, just follow the characters to the left and watch as 
Yuna "sends" the departed spirits. Lulu will explain to you more about this. 

Grab the Al Bhed Primer Vol. IV(4) in the bar. Now go to the East part of 
Kilika and Wakka will be supervising some people working. Now head West again 
until you get to Kilika Forest, and you will be put into another tutorial. 
They will talk about Kimahri's Lancet ability which lets him learn certain 
monster's moves. Start off by using it on the plant monster's (Ragora) to get 
Seed Cannon. Now its time to fight Lord Ochu! I recommend fighting this 
monster as it gives a lot of AP which you NEED.

================================================
BOSS: Lord Ochu
HP: 4,649
MP: 39
AP: 40
GIL: 420
STEAL: (Normal/Rare) 1x Potion
WEAKNESS: Fire (+50%)
ITEMS: 1x MP Sphere & 1x HP Sphere

This battle is pretty simple if you use Fire magic. Haste everyone that can 
use magic like Lulu and Yuna. I would hold off on summoning Valefor until 
later in the fight. Use Wakka to Silence Lord Ochu with Silence Attack for 3 
turns. When he gets down to around 2,000 HP he will start to use Earth Quake 
which does a LOT of damage. If that happens, summon Valefor. Valefor is a 
flying monster so can escape every ground attack. Beat down on him with 
Valefor's attacks and it should be a piece of cake.
================================================

After that talk to one of the men standing around and they will give you an 
Elixir. Go East and get the treasure which contains 2x Mana Spheres. Continue 
North, until you reach the top. Save first or you will regret it.

================================================
BOSS: Sinspawn Geneaux + Tentacles
HP: (Body): 3,000  (Tentacles): 450

GIL: (Body): 300   (Tentacles): 30
STEAL: Nothing
WEAKNESS: (Body) Fire (+50%) / (Tentacles) Lightning/Ice (-50%)
ITEMS: (Normal) 2x Power Sphere / (Rare) 3x Power Sphere

Okay, this is one of those battles where you can overcomplicate things easily. 
First, take out the tentacles with physical attacks; they absorb magic so 
there is no point in using magic attacks until they are dead. After those are 
gone, just focus on the body with Fire magic and physical attacks. Use Yuna to 
heal if you get a chance. Kimahri is good to way to pierce through the 
monster's armor.
================================================

Go up and you will see the Luca Goers (A Blitzball Team), Wakka's rival team. 
After the quarrel between the two, go into the temple. Once the sequence is 
over and you can move again, try to leave the temple. Another summoner will 
come in and shove you into the Cloister of Trials to try to get Yuna in 
trouble.

######################################################
######### Cloister of Trials - Kilika Temple #########

Take the Kilika Sphere from the pedestal on the left and place it into the 
door. This will burn down the door. Grab that sphere again to extinguish the 
fire and go through the door. Put the Kilika Sphere into the spot on the 
Northern wall, and a new glyph should appear.

Now take the Kilika Sphere and put it into the slot on the side. Touch the 
glyph to open the wall. Now take the Glyph Sphere and set it on one of the 
holders. Go into the new room and step on the shiny square in the next room to 
make the pedestal appear in that room. Now take the Kilika Sphere to the right 
of that room and place it into the pedestal. Now go into the other room and 
grab the Glyph sphere and insert it where the Kilika Sphere was, now push the 
pedestal onto the shiny thing and it will sink into the ground.

Go down the stairs and take the Kilika Sphere from below and place it into the 
slot next to the exit. Now go into the secret area you just uncovered before 
and grab the Destruction Sphere and take it down stairs and use it in the new 
slot below the ledge. Go in and grab the Red Armlet. Now take the sphere next 
to the burning door and walk through.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now you are in the summoning area, just talk to Wakka and other people and try 
to leave and she will come out, now you got Ifrit and are ready to unleash 
Hellfire. Return to Kilika... if you are bored level a couple sphere levels up.

Go back to where your old ship was and leave.

Go see your old friend O'aka and lend him some more cash. Leave some for 
yourself, don't go too broke. Go into the control room and grab the Al Bhed 
Primer Vol. V(5) which is laying in the middle of the floor. Go up and go to 
the front of the boat to hear the Luca Goers talking to Yuna. After that go to 
the top part of the boat, and listen to what Lulu and Wakka are arguing about. 
Try to go towards them around 3 to 4 times until they stop chatting.

Save and go inspect the Blitzball which will attempt to teach the Jecht Shot I. 
In Blitzball, it takes out 2 Defenders and +5 to your stats. It is an 
extremely powerful move and will help you in the future. I highly recommend 
you to get this, or you will probably regret it. To learn this you need to 
read the tutorial.  It is pretty straight forward, wherever the words appear 
use that direction on the analog and hit X, if it appears in the middle just 
press X, complete it to gain it. If you fail you should probably reset and try 
again, if you fail you cannot get it again until near the end of the game.

When you gain control head to the right and save then head to the right again 
to meet the "Meisters" they are like World Leaders. Now you are about to play 
Blitzball, Yay!

After the last event you will be taken to the locker room in preparation for 
the big Tournament. During this time Yuna claims to have saw Auron somewhere, 
first leave, and go down the stairs and go to where the other Blitzball 
players are. Near one of the plays is the Al Bhed Primer Vol. VI(6), and a 
treasure chest in the back with 2 Hi-potions, also search the decks around the 
town as most people will give you items for free...leave the Blitzball stadium 
and find Yuna. 

Go into the Sphere Theater talk to everyone. Then go to the red arrow, until 
you get to a place where there is a long strip and a guy on the right. Go to 
the right if you want to buy armor and take the stairs on the right , keep 
going up till you get 1000 GIL. Go into the pub until Kimahri gets into a 
fight then Yuna is missing.

The Al Bhed are kidnapping your summoner! Follow the red arrow once again to 
Dock 1, to 3, all the way to 4. You will have little machina trying to attack 
you a long the way; use Thunder to blast them away. Keep going until you get 
into a fight with multiple machina without a break and destroy them all. Watch 
Wakka on the tournament display. After that event you will get on the Al Bhed 
ship. Boss!

The easiest thing to do is cast Haste on everyone. First, have Tidus try to 
work with the controls by pressing LEFT and he suggests to give the thing a 
boost of power. Use Lulu's Thunder on it until it starts running by itself.  
Keep doing that while Kimahri and Tidus hack away. Once it starts running by 
itself have Tidus mess with the controls again by using the trigger command, 
Then it just smashes the boss for like 5,000 damage which will pretty much 
kill it. If it lives, keep it from attacking and it should be dead soon.
================================================

####################
## The Tournament ##
####################
When you return to the locker room, Watch the event with Wakka, before talking 
to him when he's lying down, save at the Save Sphere. Review the Blitzball 
tutorial if needed by talking to one of the guys. Talk to Wakka and you are 
ready to go. This is a tough battle, if you have the Jecht Shot use it. If not 
it will be hard. Win or lose it doesn't effect the game any so take it off 
your chest. After that Luca will be swarming with fiends for some reason. You 
meet up with Auron which is a heavy hitter right now!

After the game, Wakka gives you a thumbs up for trying so hard. All of a 
sudden, you're attacked! Get up and fight! These guys are no problem, of 
course, so use your Dark Attack and Normal Attack. When they all annihilated, 
you finally see Auron who will join you. Still use Wakka, Tidus, and use Auron 
now since he has a big hit which affects armored things.

After 2 or 3 fights Meister Seymour will summon his Aeon which is very 
powerful, you will learn the name of this Aeon soon. Meister Seymour saves the 
day and becomes a new hero in Luca. Before leaving go get the Al Bhed Primer 
Vol. VII(7) at the Sphere Theater.

Follow the Red Arrow on the mini-map, go up and Auron will explain some VERY 
interesting news, make sure you pay attention; he will then join your party as 
another one of Yuna's guardians.

**NOTE: Some monsters are really tough in this area, for instance Dual Horns 
which are a real pain in this part of the game. You can either use Wakka's 
Dark Attack or (Something I found out) Summon Valefor. Dual Horns only use 
physical attacks and so they cannot hit him since he is a flyer, cheap but 
good way to get EXP with minimal threat. Others are easy, just use their 
counterpart magic spells.
(IE: Bombs take more damage by Blizzard because they are Fire)
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

As you see the Save Sphere, Go up to it and PRESS X, it will upgrade your Save 
Sphere to Level 2, which means you can play Blitzball via Save Sphere now! 
Also to hire people press the SQUARE button next to them. Talk to EVERYONE you 
see on this road they give tons of good items; there are lots of treasures too. 
If you see a curve to the right or left, in the Minimap, check it out because 
most likely there is a treasure there.

Just continue down the road talking to everyone till you get to the Chocobo 
Knights. Then soon you will meet Belgimine, this girl will battle you with 
Aeons, so make sure Yuna level is up and the Overdrive. If you win you will 
receive an Echo Ring. If you lose you get a Seeker's Ring. Win or Lose 
continue down the road.

Continue the road for along ways, behind a Chocobo Knight is a Remedy, and 
when you come up to a Blitzball don't kick it. Talk to the kid first and he 
will reward you with 3 Softs for finding it, and then kick it. Keep going till 
a Chocobo type carrier car comes by, talk to one of the guys there and he will 
hand over an Ether. Keep going until you get the last treasure which is 3 Eye 
Drops. Next screen you will see a stop area, you will decide to stop so go 
inside and freshen up, a boss battle is coming around in a few minutes. So be 
well equipped and leveled up. 

Before heading out, talk to one of the people in the store and he will give 
you a LVL 1 KEY SPHERE which will come in handy. SAVE!!!! [IMPORTANT] and you 
will meet Rin (who is a semi-good Blitzball player, you can't put him on your 
team until you get the temporary airship/permanent airship) he is an Al Bhed 
and has a big franchise of rest areas around Spira. He will also give you your 
Al Bhed Primer Vol. VIII(8).

Leave and the Chocobo's are being gobbled up by this monster.

THE SAVE POINT.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
This dude is hard. First off get Tidus, Wakka, Auron in your party. Auron 
should Power Break it. Have Tidus use Cheer and Wakka use Dark Attack. Switch 
Auron off for Lulu. Have Lulu cast Fira [if not use Fire, I suggest getting 
Fira, Watera, Thundara, and Blizzara after]. Have Tidus cast Haste on Lulu. 
Switch off Wakka for Auron, until Chocobo Eaters Blind wears off, then switch 
him back in to do Dark Attack again. Also when it's on its back summon an Aeon 
with full Overdrive to do more damage. Dismiss it before Chocobo Eater kills 
it. Repeat until defeated.
================================================

If you lose [Get pushed all the way back and fall off the cliff, just hit the 
RESET button] you will regret it because you have to hike along ways, if you 
win you're in luck, Rin lets you rent a Chocobo for FREE for now! So head back 
to the rest stop to save and talk to the lady. Now, you get to ride a Chocobo!

KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THE Al Bhed Primer Vol. IX(9)

If you want some extra items and the MARS SIGIL (used in part to power up 
Auron's Ultimate Weapon) do this.... find the Chocobo Feather and press X on 
it while on the Chocobo, here you will get a Scout and a Thunder Blade, 
continue and talk to Lucil, who happens to be a member of the Chocobo Knights. 
Head South of O'aka to get the Mars Sigil. Return to the gates of Mushroom 
Rock, talk to everyone to learn more about what they are doing.

Donations are a waist of cash but if you want to go ahead. 1st choice you get 
a Scout, Second you an Ice Lance, and if you spent your life leveling up 
and/or you have Gameshark, you can get a Moon Ring for Yuna.

When you can't access it so you have to have Master Seymour will come and 
grant you access. Go through the event and talk to everyone, get the items and 
head out. Follow the Red Arrow. Save and continue, this trail is harsh and 
tiring because you run into a lot of enemies that are annoying :). There is 
also weird looking ground, press X to go up to the next area. Once you reach 
an object at the end with a Save Sphere. Save and Level Up for a bit and save 
when you get low on HP/MP or if your Aeons have died. After Head up.

Continue pass the forbidden machina and save at the Save Sphere on the next 
screen. You decide his fate. If you choose him to fight sin he will die and 
his companion will live, choose to fight Sin and he will die and his friend 
will live.

Talk to them about there plans. Before talking to the guy go Save and talk to 
the guy all the way to the right. Tell him your ready. The plan goes wrong [of 
course] and it attacks you

This guy is not that hard. Summon Aeons and Overdrive it to kill arms and 
maybe the head. If not, use Wakka to take out the head and Auron and Tidus to 
take out the head. It will use Venom once in a while cure with Esuna, I 
recommend Ifrit for part of this as he is immune to status effects and his 
Overdrive is good if you leveled up Yuna. It regenerates it arms and its arms 
protect its body so that's your #1 target, #2 is the head, #3 is the body. He 
should die soon. Time consuming.
================================================

Watch the next event that is saddening, and that Sinspawn Gui STILL isn't dead!
However maybe with the addition of Seymour to your party it will be cake...
which it is.

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
**NOTE: Seymour does have an Overdrive called Requiem, if you want to see it, 
start building it up because this will be the only time you will be able to 
see it in the game.

Seymour now joins your party! Just cast his high level magic like Fira and 
it's dead in like 1 hit, just take out the rest and you'll find this fight was 
really easy.

You get 6x LVL 1 KEY SPHERES, Inspect everyone but the guy who was at the gate, 
he's in the top left.

Talk to all the people to receive a gift of some sort. There is a chest with a 
Phoenix Down, and there is a spiky rock, search behind it for an Al Bhed 
Primer Vol. XI(11). Fight those big Cobra looking things with arms [Basilisks] 
to stock up on Ability Spheres. Summon Ifrit. Also Kimahri can learn Stone 
Breath using Lancet from these guys. When you go North on the East side there 
is a small crevice type place with a chest get it for a Bright Bangle. Keep 
going. Go RIGHT to the next screen until you see a bridge with a lot of people.

Continue and save at the Save Sphere in front of the temple. Behind the Inn is 
a chest with 4 Ability Spheres, to the West of the entrance there is 4,000 GIL.

You are introduced to a new summoner, Isaaru. After that, head to the left and 
pick up an Ether and go to the right and pick up the Remedy. Then go up the 
middle and now it's time for a trial that took me forever to figure out

#####################################################
######### Cloister of Trials - Djose Temple #########
#####################################################
Take both spheres from the side walls and insert them both into the door. Head 
through the door, Take a sphere next to the door and put it into the either 
slot on the far right side. Take the other and insert that into the other hole 
on the right side. Now the pedestal on the ceiling should light up. Push the 
pedestal in the middle of the room to the right, right under where that 
pedestal is to charge the sphere and make it super shiny. Take the charged up 
sphere and place it to the right of the door. This should open it. Step on the 
floor glyph that's shining to the left.

Take the 2 spheres from the right of the room and put them on both sides of 
the pedestal. Push the pedestal into the lightning pit and hop across. Push 
the Pedestal so it goes inward and light on the eyeball of the bird thing 
lights up.

Go back and step on the shiny floor glyph to the left again and take the 2 
spheres from it and put them all the way back to where you took the first 2 
spheres to open the door. Put both of them in each slot. So the whole thing 
should be lit up accept the head. Take the charged sphere and place it to the 
left of the door. The door should seal but it creates a floor lift to the top 
level.

Once up there, push all 5 of the pedestals inward [2 are hidden on the very 
right and left], a door to stairs should open up, STOP RIGHT THERE. Ride to 
the lower level again. Go to where the shiny floor glyph that resets the 
pedestal is, don't step on it but a new glyph should appear in front of it. 
Press X up to the glyph and Touch It, It should lead you to a Destruction 
Sphere. Now take that sphere and ride to the top. Put it into the pedestal and 
grab the treasure. And then go up the stairs.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Talk to everyone multiple times, and then attempt to leave. Then that other 
summoner that pushed you down the Cloister of Trials is there. You receive a 
new Aeon Ixion, thunder based.

In the morning wake up and grab the Switch Hitter from the treasure chest. Go 
outside the inn and go inside the temple. Keep going and slap Yuna awake (hehe 
just kidding), she wakes up and rushes to get ready... well time to head out.

Talk to all the people walking out to receive items, go North to start the 
Moonflow Path, Yay.

Go North and talk to Shelinda. After talking to her, go behind her to pick up 
3x Lvl. 1 Key Spheres. Go straight again and watch the scene with the Ronso 
and Kimahri. Grab the X-potion and keep moving and there is some more Lvl. 1 
Key Spheres in some cracks in the side, just grab them.  Keep going and talk 
to people and then you meet up with Belinda again.

She wants to battle you, so be prepared. Try to get in battle with OVERDRIVE 
as usual. Summon someone like Ifrit for Ixion, use Valefor if that fails of 
course. Win and get Summoner's Soul, which allows you to teach Abilities to 
your Aeons through items. If you win you get 2x Dragon Scales, if you lose she 
will not give you them so win.

Keep moving till you see trees and you can move in-between some of them to get 
a Magic Defense Sphere. Move on to get the SHOOPUFS! They are swimming 
elephant thingies. Grab the 2x Phoenix Down and buy some stuff from O'aka 
since the shop here likes to raise it high. Go North West of Auron, grab the 
chest inside the house for 5,000 GIL. Save and talk to the dude that looks 
like T for a head and body he's blue, can't miss him. While you are on the 
Shoopuf you get attack... -Cue Boss Battle Music-

This is easy, just attack it with all you have, haste if necessary. Use 
potions if you fall in the yellow. Try to get the Lightningstrike ability for 
either of there weapons or have Wakka use Element Reels and try to get all the 
yellow circles [lightning] to power it up. Hit it with the Blitzball if it 
gets ready to do depth charges. He should be done in soon.
================================================

Talk to O'aka. Take the Al Bhed Primer Vol. XII(12), buy some supplies from 
him as you may need them later on.... supplies or not save and go West. There 
is also another good Blitzball player I have found called Miyu Guado.

As you continue West.... WHO'S THAT IN THE SUIT?! It's that person from the 
start of the game, Rikku. After the next event, they give a tutorial on how to 
steal and use the Mix OVERDRIVE. Use will enable her to use the stuff she has 
stolen or won.

Follow the path. On the left there should be a Mega-Potion and on the right 3 
Antidotes.

As soon as you enter an event will occur and you will be able to customize 
weapons (take items and mod them into an ability to add to a weapon/armor). If 
you like you can add Darkproof or Poisonproof if you have enough items, to 
prevent you from future poisons or whatever. First, go to the top left house 
left of Seymour's Place and the Al Bhed Primer Vol. XIII(13) is. Next, go to 
the Inn to save. You should also go buy items from the shop and whatever you 
need [O'aka carries cheaper things than the Guado shop].

Go to the middle top of Guadosalam, which happens to be Seymour's place. Go in 
and climb the stairs and on the top there are 2 Hi-Potions. Talk to everyone 
and see what they have to say. After these next events get out of the house 
and go to the top where there is a guy guarding it. Continue on the path and 
stick to the left where there is a hidden chest with 8 Lightning Marbles. 
Continue onto the path and you will go to a place where spirits feed off your 
thoughts to make an image. This is the Farplane. Talk to Wakka, Lulu, and then 
Yuna. After this event your Brotherhood will be upgraded.

Continue back and Yuna will be inside that house you were earlier. Talk to 
Lulu and then Rikku. After that go to the shop and Kimahri will come out. Talk 
to Lulu yet again. After Yuna is done trying to find Maester Seymour, leave 
through the left exit. Now you are onto the Thunder Plains.

When you enter take a left and grab the 2 Phoenix Downs out of the treasure 
chest. Okay, well this is pretty straight forward, when you see a flash of 
lightning press X fast and you will dodge it, prizes are given to consecutive 
dodges/hits, check the Minigames/Sidequests chapter. Save at the Save Sphere, 
and keep going. If you see a Qactuar Stone glow press Square up to it. This 
will let you get into random battles with Qactuar that give a fair amount of 
AP, but have a very high evade. My suggestion is use Wakka to use AIM on 
everyone a couple of times. Then unleash, watch out for its 1,000 needles 
attack.

Keep walking and they will decide to go into a Rest Stop. Take a rest, save or 
whatever. Talk to Rikku, and Rin will come in, choose the going good option to 
get the Al Bhed Primer Vol. XIV(14). There is also a book on the counter that 
talks about Qactuar Stones.

Go to where Yuna went, and go into the room. (I wonder what she's up to.) When 
you get outside, search for a Yellow Shield. Get back to the path and take a 
right. Keep going, and eventually Yuna has something to tell you guys. Look 
around for a chest containing an Ether, behind the building. After you regain 
control, keep going and there should be a Save Sphere up above. This is a 
GREAT place for you level up at this time.  The Iron Giants give a very 
generous amount of AP, great for leveling up quick. Try to have the Firaga, 
Waterga, etc. learned very soon. And have Tidus near Hastega on the Sphere 
Board if you don't have it learned already. Gain like 10+ Sphere Levels if you 
like, it will help soon. Move out and look out for more treasures as they are 
along the linear path.

If you leveled up you will be fine, if not these battles may be hard. Chimera 
will use Megiddo Flame [sound familiar huh? yup, Omega Weapon used this in 
Final Fantasy 8, but this one doesn't do 9998 damage. Head up the log and 
follow the path to the left to find a Sleepy Cait Sith. Be sure to get all the 
treasures in this area as there is a significant amount. Look for them. 
Continue and you will meet a creature who will tell you about the Butterfly 
Catcher game. You can accept or just pass this over for now. IF you accept, Go 
to the Butterfly Catcher section in the Minigames/Sidequests section.

Continue till you see... O'aka! Talk to him and tell him his prices are too 
high and he will give you some discounts. Across from him is a hidden Al Bhed 
Primer Vol. XV(15).

Make sure no one has any Lightningstrike's or Waterstrike's or anything on 
their weapons, as this next fight might HEAL the monster. Continue until Auron 
cuts through the brush and you come to a cool area, but not for long....

I had my Overdrives ready on my Aeons. This is how I did it: Keep attacking 
and it will cast a spell on you, if it's Thunder, that means he absorbs 
Thunder. So memorize his patterns and when he gets to firing Blizzard or 
Water.... BUST OUT Ifrit fast for Blizzard and use his Overdrive or Ixion for 
Water. If you leveled up their Overdrive it should do 9999. Keep doing this 
and it will die in no time at all. 

An alternative is to use Lulu's spells instead. It will still change its 
element each time, so just physical attack it to get its spell type and do the 
opposite magic. It should die soon.
================================================

After that it will leave behind a Jecht Sphere which will tell you about 
Jecht's [Tidus's father] time on Spira and how he was stranded. The Jecht 
Sphere will also give Auron a new Overdrive called "Shooting Star" this will 
kick some enemies out of battle, or do a decent amount of damage.

Continue on, looking for treasures, until you come to a rest stop.

First use Wakka to attack the floating object, which is the Negator. Negator 
disables you from using Magic or Aeons. Attack it, and it will start to 
countdown and at the end of the countdown, it unleashes Mana Beam. This WILL 
do lots of damage. 

Heal up and bring in Yuna and Lulu, if they are not already in. Cast Thunder 
spells and unleash Ixion and use Boost. Then unleash his Thor Hammer, if 
Negator is about to use Mana Beam, quickly Shield to block some of the damage. 
This battle is sort of hard. Just don't attack it after you have been severely 
hurt or else it will target you. Use as many items as you can, you will always 
have enough money to buy them later in this game.
================================================

After the battle, it's time to go cruising on the machina-snow-bicycle things. 
When you get to the temple, take a right and grab the Mega-Potion. Let's go in 
the door. Go across the bridge and an Al Bhed will bribe you 400 GIL not to 
harm him.

Have you noticed that that last couple of Temples had to do with the element 
of the Aeon? Well, hmmm its ice all round so guess who? Shiva.

Get in and talk to the people to receive some items. Tromell will give you a 
Shell Targe which is always useful. Find the Save Sphere and Save up before 
you continue. Continue up the middle to try to go into the Cloister of Trials. 
However, you will be forced down and to the right to see a sphere of what 
really happened to Seymour's father. Before leaving, check the chest in the 
back for some Remedies and talk to one of the people for 2 Hi-Potions. 

Get back out and before going, collect the 2 X-Potions and 5,000 GIL in the 
first room then go to the top left of the screen and look for someone who will 
give you an Elixir and an Ether. There is also a chest in the back that has 3 
Phoenix Downs! You really SHOULD save again and head into the Cloister of 
Trials. You will find Seymour waiting for you.

================================================
BOSS: Seymour
HP: (SEYMOUR): 6,000  (ANIMA): 18,000  (GUADO): 2,000  
MP: (SEYMOUR): 100    (ANIMA): 50      (GUADO): 10   
AP: (TOTAL) 6,220

       (Anima - Rare): Farplane Shadow
       (Guado - Normal): 1x Hi-Potion
       (Guado - Rare): 2x Hi-Potion
WEAKNESS: None
ITEMS: 1x Ability Sphere & 1x Black Magic Sphere

This battle is not that hard if you leveled up a lot in the Thunder Plains. 
First take out the 2 Guado as they will heal Seymour and cast spells on him 
for AID. If you're having trouble, steal their Hi-Potions with Rikku to keep 
them from healing themselves. 

Tidus and Yuna can use the TALK trigger command to raise the stats of the 
character. Switch out Rikku if you used her and bring in a heavy hitter. So 
you should now have Yuna, Tidus, Auron or Kimahri out, whoever is stronger 
(usually it's Auron, just because of the Sphere Grid layout). Have Tidus cast 
Haste or Hastega on everyone. Then have Tidus and Auron pound Seymour for all 
you have. Seymour uses Blizzard, Thunder, Water, and Fire so have Yuna HEAL 
and use the NulFrost, NulShock, NulTide, and NulBlaze which will cancel all of 
his spells if you use them in that order. When you hurt him enough he will 
call forth his Aeon, Anima. Anima is easier than I thought he would be.  

At this time you should have a new Aeon so summon ????, which happens to be 
Shiva. Use Heavenly Strike until it uses Pain. When it hits, attack yourself 
with Blizzard or Blizzara to heal you. Once your Overdrive fills up unleash 
that bad boy which should do 9999 damage. Keep up the same thing with the 
Blizzara healing and you should be able to get the second one off which does 
another 9999. If you did both that's over 18,000+ HP already which is how much 
Anima has.

Seymour comes out again, but now he uses his spells consecutively. Cast some 
Nul-Magic to cancel out his magic and heal and start assaulting him with 
physical attacks. He will fall soon just keep up the attacks.

--submitted by: Blastgator--
First of all I should tell you that I had run out of Ability Spheres before I 
could get Yuna to learn NullTide, NullShock, and NullFrost. So I did manage to 
get NullBlaze. So enough with that here is what I did. First off I had Tidus 
use Haste on Yuna so she could have 2 turns and heal any body that was hurt 
With her Cure. On Yuna's turn I had her talk to Seymour to increase her 
magical defense. I then switched Kimahri for Rikku and had her steal a Hi-
Potion from one of the Guado Guards Seymour and His guards attacked.

I then had Tidus use Haste on him. Then I used Yuna to heal everyone hurt by 
Seymour's attacks. I then had Rikku steal the last Hi-potion from the last 
Guado guard. It was Seymour turns. I then started attacking the Guado guards 
with Tidus. Had Yuna heal then switched Rikku for Auron since he was my 
strongest character at the time and had him finish off the last guard. I had 
Tidus talk to Seymour to double Tidus's strength and had Yuna set to heal.

Then I had Auron use the Shooting Star Overdrive that did around 2,000 damage. 
Then it was Tidus's turn again, so I had him use the regular attack and it did 
over 2,000 damage. He then summoned Anima so I summoned Shiva and was doing a 
great job till he used Anima's Overdrive and destroyed Shiva.

So I summoned Ixion and destroyed Anima. Seymour then attacks Ixion with 
thunder healing it from battle so I attacked him with Aerospark, but he 
retaliated with water knocking Ixion out. I then just used Auron to kill him. 
I give you my permission to word this around a little bit and put it in your 
walkthrough to help people that made the same mistake I did And did not level 
up Yuna quick.

================================================

Once you kill him, the Guado bursts through and takes Seymour.

Begin by taking a left and going down the steps and go to the middle pillar 
and grab the Glyph Sphere. Put this one into the pedestal. Push the Pedestal 
to the right and it runs into the ice. Now push it forward and it flies down 
another ramp. Go down and take that sphere out and put it in the very left-
most slot on the wall. Go up the ramp and take the Macalania Sphere from the 
new wall that came up.

Go down to the pedestal and put it in, now push the pedestal to the right. A 
part of the bridge should have appeared. Now once again go back up and grab 
the sphere on the very right.  Go down the ramp and put it in the left pillar. 
Take the sphere next to the ramp going down and put it in the middle pillar. 
Go up the ramp to where you first started and step on the shining floor glyph 
to return the pedestal to the top. Once that is accomplished, take the sphere 
and push it down the ramp.

Go down the ramp to where the pedestal was ORIGINALLY and step on the shining 
floor glyph to the left. Take the Macalania Sphere in your hand and put it 
into the far right slot making the ice re-appear. Take the sphere from the 
middle pillar again and put it into the slot by the ramp to make the ramp re-
appear. Take the Destruction Sphere from the Pedestal and go down the ramp and 
put it into the slot left of the doorway.

Go down the tiny ramp and open the chest. Take it and let's get out of here. 
Go back up the ramp and push it to the right so it hits the ice again, take 
the sphere on the very right and put it into the pedestal. Push the pedestal 
North again and it will go back to the basement. Push it right to make the 
bridge re-appear. Now go up the ramp and grab the sphere by the ramp to make 
it disappear. Place that into the middle pillar and go up the main ramp and 
leave.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well after that go out and the Guado will be very mad and are with Seymour. 
They will destroy the sphere of Seymour's father that told them Seymour was 
evil, your only proof now gone. Well time to run, just escape and follow the 
path to where you came. If the Guado catch up they will force you into a 
battle. Just keep moving and take the right path, at the end there is a Lvl 1 
Key Sphere. Jump across to the left and continue until you get to the Save 
Sphere. Touch the Save Sphere to Heal and then Save.

This is easy! Just take out the 2 Guado by either stealing the Hi-Potions from 
them or use an Aeon to take them out. If they cast Berserk on Wendigo, either 
use Threaten for Auron or you will probably get thrashed bad. Fira and Firaga 
work wonders. Dark Buster/Dark Attack and Power Breaks are musts. Wakka' Sleep 
Attack also works.
================================================

Save at the Save Sphere and talk to everyone. There is a Lvl. 2 Key Sphere 
hidden behind Kimahri. Someone revisits you and the toxin gets to close and 
you black out.

You wake up in an Oasis in the middle of the desert! I want to know how you 
can go from freezing temperatures and under ice to an Oasis in the middle of a 
desert island. First things first, swim to the lower left to grab 4 Remedies 
and Save at the Save Sphere.

Go North and you will be attacked by a Zu monster, This isn't a boss battle or 
hard. Just keep attacking until Auron and Lulu join in. Take it out using 
Power Break, Mental Break, and Bio works WONDERS in this part. Sandworms will 
attack you later, just bio them and blind them. The BIO will do 4,200 damage 
every turn [or around their].

Go straight up and you will find Wakka underneath a tent. Talk to him and you 
get him in your party. Open the chest to find 8 Al Bhed Potions. These are the 
best Potions up to now and for the future! Only Rikku can use them but, they 
cure everyone for 1000 HP each and will cure the person of Poison, 
Petrifaction, AND Silence! Don't use all of them though, as you will need them 
soon for an upcoming boss.

Take a path to the right to find Kimahri just going up a dune and then slides 
back down and repeats. Just talk to him and follow the path North to find 
Rikku. Get some Ether's from the chest and some more Al Bhed Potions from the 
first aid kit. Now if you encounter Machina, Rikku can take it apart (Instant-
kill) by using Steal WHILE gaining Grenade items.

The new Cactuars are around here, they will do 10,000 needles instead of 1,000 
so watch out, because these ones are powerful. Keep going until you see a 
sign... head southwest to find a chest with 4 Hi-Potions, continue until you 
reach a fork. Grab the Al Bhed First Aid kit for another 8 Al Bhed Potions and 
go to the left, even though the enemies are stronger there are better items so 
continue looking for them, they are near structures. Look around for a big 
semi-circle that has windows in it for A Bhed Primer Vol. XVII(17). Go North 
until you hit a marker sign. Look around their for an Al Bhed Primer Vol. 
XVIII(18)! 

Continue to the red arrow and if you see the whirlwind in the put and a 
Cactuar Stone, check the Minigames/Sidequests section "Cactuar Hunter" for 
info on it. Also around there are 3 Mega-Potions and 2 X-Potions. Move East 
until you come across a chest sinking. Just chase it for a battle. Defeat 
these monsters with fire spells; cure the confusion with a physical attack. 
Grab the chest for 3 Mega Elixirs; continue North for another chest which has 
some Teleport Spheres. Now just follow the red arrow until you get to the Al 
Bhed Home, which is pretty banged up.

Search a dead body for 2x Hi-Potions, and go to the Save Sphere and look 
around it for the Al Bhed Primer Vol. XIX(19). Save and go inside. When you 
get hunched in the middle, just attack the Guado until you kill it and finally 
kill the monster he summoned. Just follow the party to the top right. As you 
move along you get attacked again by Dual Horns and Guado. Go down the stairs, 
return to the South corridor and go left. The Al Bhed Primer Vol. XX(20) is on 
the bed and the 2 chests require you to translate Al Bhed.

If you collected ALL of the Primers like I have showed you, you should have no 
problem. If not do this. So pick "Sorro" which translates to Sorry, pick Fait 
which translates to Wait, pick Pardon which translates to Pardon. Grab the 
Friend Sphere from the chest and take off.

Exit the room and go down the stairs. There is a chest with 4 Al Bhed Potions 
along the left.  There is another chest around with 6 more. Go through the 
eastern corridor and take the Al Bhed Primer Vol. XXI(21). Enter the door to 
get some more questions go to the chest above the Compilation Sphere. You need 
to do math for this:

1st Digit: Add Both numbers.
2nd digit: Subtract the 2nd number from the 1st number
3rd Digit: Multiply the 1st number by the 2nd number
4th Digit: Add both numbers

Doing this will get you a Special Sphere. Move to the other chest that 
requires you to do some answering. Here are the answers to save you time:

1st: 3rd Answer
2nd: 4th Answer
3rd: 2nd Answer
4th: 1st Answer

Continue through the city looking for chests. There is a Lvl. 4 Key Sphere 
under some stairs, and a Lvl 2. Key Sphere on the far right before you enter 
the Summoners Sanctum. After the next event you will find Yuna not there, and 
more info on what they are doing. After this a monster busts through. Just 
leave and get the chest in the Sanctum for 10,000 GIL. And then head to the 
airship dock. Basically the attack on the town was to get Yuna.

Now you get to watch a really cool movie! Like on the commercial. When you 
regain control I suggest hiring Brother (The Guy piloting the ship, North of 
where you are) onto your Blitzball team, he is really good. Rin is also on the 
ship too, hire him also. This will be the only time you can hire them for a 
while. Just wonder around and talk to people until you get attacked. 

Head to the left of the control room until you get to the Save Sphere and some 
steps. Save and continue up the stairs. After that's done Talk to Rin buy some 
items and armor if you like and go in front and ride up. Talk to all of the Al 
Bhed you see here because one of them gives you 4x Al Bhed Potions.

Head to the back and go up the elevator and you will encounter a big monster 
called Evrae.

AP: 5,400
GIL: 2,600
STEAL: (Normal) 1x Water Gem (Rare) 2x Water Gem
WEAKNESS: Fire/Ice/Water/Lightning (-50%)
ITEM: Black Magic Sphere

Cast Slow on Evrae and then Hastega on yourself if you don't have that just 
cast Haste on everyone. When you are up close just nail him with everything 
you have, including OVERDRIVES. 

If he Petrifies, Poisons, or hits them hard with physical damage and have 
someone switch out with Rikku. Doing so will allow you to use the Al Bhed 
Potions using her USE command, which will cure anything this guy can throw at 
you. If you pull back long enough the ship will unload missiles doing 200 - 
400 damage with each missile. It will use Poison Breath sometimes which 
poisons everyone, Counter with 1 or 2 Al Bhed Potions or Antidotes. This is 
sort of easy battle, just continue with it.

surrounded. After that event you will be surrounded and Rikku will use a flash 
grenade which will blind everyone long enough to make an escape.

Go up to the panel and press X and an escalator type thing will take you down. 
Follow the short path to the temple and look around for the Al Bhed Primer Vol.

**NOTE: Bevelle is the only temple in the game where the destruction sphere is 
required to proceed within the game; therefore you cannot miss it even if you 
wanted to. In which case, this sphere will always be lit up at Anima's temple.

You cannot re-enter the Bevelle Cloister of Trials later in the game.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
When you first enter push the pedestal forward and it will turn into a 
platform, taking you down. Hit X so you go forward. On the first turn when the 
arrow points right hit X and you will take a right. Now it takes you all the 
way to the bottom. Take the sphere from the holder and place it into the 
pedestal. Push the pedestal onto the path from where you came. It will turn 
into the elevator thingy. When you go straight up take a right and take the 
next right [second right from where you first started].

Take a Bevelle Sphere and place it into the holder. Push it back into the path 
and go to the end and fall off. When you start from the previous place this 
time take the left and take the sphere and insert it into the pedestal. Push 
it onto the path and ride to the end and fall off. From the starting place 
take a right ride to the next floor and take a left and ride it to the end and 
take the right. Take a Bevelle Sphere and insert it into the holder, this will 
open a path to a Destruction Sphere, but we can't get it just yet. Push the 
pedestal back into the path and you will fall off. When you start you will be 
on the second level, stay on that level DO NOT go up to the first level.

NOW from the new start take the second left and take the Glyph Sphere at the 
end and insert it into the Pedestal. Push the pedestal back onto the path and 
take a right at the very end again. This time, take a Glyph Sphere and put it 
into the Glyph which will give you access to the Destruction Sphere. Take it 
and put it on the pedestal.

Fall off and when you start from the new beginning again, take the second 
right and insert the Destruction Sphere there. Push the pedestal back onto the 
path and ride to the very end again. Take the Bevelle Sphere and insert it 
into the pedestal. Push it back in and you will fall off again.

From the new start take the first right [not where you got the VERY FIRST 
sphere]. When you get onto the little land thing, push the pedestal over the 
side and onto the new path. Ride it and you should switch. It will take you up 
to a new place. Go up and open the treasure and step on the shining glyph to 
put the pedestal up there. If you followed this guide you should have 2 
Bevelle Spheres, which is good if not, I feel sorry for you. Take 1 sphere and 
insert it into the holder. Push it to the left and ride the short ride to the 
end and grab the treasure. Ride back over and take a right.

Talk to the people and you and Kimahri will bust out Yuna. After this you will 
have received Bahamut! He is one of the most powerful Aeon's at this point 
with a 10,000+ dmg attack for his Overdrive. After the next event you will be 
held for a trial.

Each person is sentenced to a maze. Where there is a boss at the end of each 
one. Oh joy.

First you control Yuna, and you have to find other party members. When you 
first start out go East, and follow the path, here you will meet Kimahri. This 
is a great time to check out Bahamut and all he has to offer. To the left of 
the room is a treasure chest with a Mega-Potion in it. Go North after that and 
follow the path to find Auron. Save at the Save Sphere. From where you found 
Auron, go West and you will find Lulu in a short corner. Behind her carries a 
White Magic Sphere. Go South from where you found Lulu and you will be taken 
to a chest with an Elixir in it. 

There is also a glyph on the wall, touch it to activate it. Now you have to 
backtrack ALL the way back. (What a pain, eh?) Go North and take the first 
right, there you will find a Black Magic Sphere on the right side of the room. 
Step on the floor glyph [if you activated the glyph on the wall where the 
Elixir was] and it will move. Go back to where the T-intersection where the 
locked door was and step on the glyph when it points to the locked room. A 
Skill Sphere and Lucid Ring will be waiting for you there. Get out of the room 
and go to where Auron was. Save and go down the corridor to the North. This is 
where you will have to battle Isaaru, he has 3 Aeons.

================================================
BOSS: Ifrit [Grothia] / Valefor [Pterya] / Bahamut [Spathi]
HP: (IFRIT): 8,000  (VALEFOR): 12,000  (BAHAMUT): 20,000
MP: (IFRIT): 600   (VALEFOR): 1,000     (BAHAMUT): 1,500
AP: 6,000
GIL: 0
STEAL: Nothing
WEAKNESS: (IFRIT): Ice (+50%) / Fire (~)
          (VALEFOR): None
          (Bahamut): None
ITEMS: Nothing
**NOTE: The bars underneath the Aeon's are their Overdrive gauges, when they 
are full they will release their Overdrive.

IFRIT: Summon an Aeon, I used Shiva. For Ifrit, wait until Ifrit attacks you 
and use Shiva's Boost. If you use Boost a lot, you will quickly beat Ifrit to 
his Overdrive and won't have to worry about getting destroyed by Ifrit's fire 
Overdrive (especially if you chose Shiva). Heal yourself with Blizzara or 
Blizzard when you are low on health. You will always get to the Overdrive 
before Ifrit even if you started from the bottom of the Overdrive bar. If your 
Overdrive is done, unleash it which it will do 9,999 instantly killing him.

VALEFOR: When he summons Valefor, you summon Bahamut. This isn't hard, just 
use Impulse or Boost and get attacked. Your Mega Flare will annihilate him. If 
it doesn't kill him, you need to level up a lot more at this point. If he 
survives just use some attacks or Impulses to finish it off.

BAHAMUT: Summon anyone you like, I chose Ixion. When you battle it, it will 
start to count. That is when it releases Mega Flare. To do this you should 
have your Aeon at full Overdrive or just build it up, using its special attack 
and Attack. When you get it you should be able to pull off an Overdrive. If 
Bahamut beats you to his overdrive before you make sure to use Shield before 
he unleashes it to reduce some damage. You will more than likely survive it so 
just heal up with Thundara, Blizzara, Fira, Cures or whatever you had your 
Aeon learn. He will fall after around 2 good Overdrives. Not that hard.

=suggestion by: drumpunk10=
This battle can be tough or very easy, it depends on your strategy. Just one 
hint before I start, Shiva is not the Aeon to start with to fight Ifrit 
because even if Shiva gets off an Overdrive, Ifrit still won't die, but when 
he uses Hellfire, Shiva is toast (literally). 

Start off with Bahamut and use his Overdrive, this may not kill Ifrit first 
try, but at least Ifrit's Overdrive won't kill Bahamut. Do Bahamut's Overdrive 
twice and Ifrit is toast. You should also be able to kill Valefor (second 
battle against Isaaru) with Bahamut, if not bring in Ifrit and use his 
Overdrive. 

Finally Isaaru will summon Bahamut. Simple, this is the time to bring in Shiva. 
Just use her Overdrive, and when Bahamut is about to use Mega Flare just have 
Shiva use Shield. Do this a few times and Bahamut is gone. Very easy fight, 
but you need a good strategy.
================================================

After Isaaru is gone, you will be switched to Tidus, Wakka, Rikku. When you 
start out you can go to the right to purchase some items from a blue looking 
chest. Fight off people until you get to the next Save Sphere. Save and move 
forward. And you will fight someone familiar looking.

================================================
BOSS: Evrae Altana
HP: 16,384
MP: 300
AP: 5,800
GIL: 3,000
STEAL: Water Gem
WEAKNESS: Holy (+50%) - Includes Healing since he is Undead.
ITEMS: 1x Black Magic Sphere

This battle is SOOO hard.  First steal the Water Gem from him then give him 2 
Phoenix Downs to kill him. Nice trade off for all that AP and money.
================================================

Swim onward after you defeat it to find some chests containing the Avenger and 
the Rematch [If you used the trigger commands to shut the gate and didn't use 
the easiest way, then you missed out].

When everyone is joined up again you will run into Seymour again. Kimahri will 
step up to defend you. When you regain control, O'aka is around so buy some 
items if you are low on them. Run down the path battling some easy enemies and 
whatnot. Get Overdrives built up for Aeons and Normal people. Save at the end 
and get ready to face Seymour.

================================================
BOSS: Seymour Natus / Mortibody
HP: (Seymour Natus): 36,000 / (Mortibody): 4,000
MP: (Seymour Natus): 20 / (Mortibody): 50
AP: 6,300
GIL: 3,500
STEAL: (Seymour Natus): 2x Tetra Elemental
       (Seymour Natus): 3x Tetra Elemental
WEAKNESS: None
ITEMS: 2x Lvl. 2 Key Sphere

Before you kill this guy, make sure you steal those Tetra Elementals from him, 
they are very useful. I found this battle extremely easy. When you start, bust 
out EVERYTHING including Overdrives, Aeons Overdrives, and your best physical 
attacks. You must have the Overdrives ready on your Aeons', because Seymour 
Natus will just cast Banish and instantly kill the Aeon after one turn.  So 
make sure your attack (or whatever you use) counts before it gets Banished.  

Nul-Magic works great, since he uses multiple types of magic. He also uses 
Flare, which is a very powerful spell at this point. It may take out a 
character if you have low HP. He also uses an attack that has a chance to 
Petrify you, if that happens have Rikku use an Al Bhed Potion. Don't use any 
magic during this battle except to heal or guard. Cast Reflect on Seymour, if 
his HP gets low the Mortibody will use healing spells to cure him, BUT if you 
have Reflect on him, the Mortibody will end up curing you instead. Continue 
with physical attacks and when he attacks just clean up with cures.  He should 
fall sort of easily.
================================================

Now you end up in Macalania Woods. Save and head South and find Kimahri, from 
him take a left to find Yuna. A nice event will take place and you will come 
back and go to sleep.

In the morning check around the campsite to find a Lucid Ring. Go to the 
crossroads and head WEST to find yet another Jecht Sphere. Go back to the 
crossroads and head EAST to the Calm lands!

:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:

When you come in, talk to the old guy, Maechan, for more information on the 
Calm Lands. Follow the path to the left until the Rin's Travel Agency comes 
flying in, buy some stuff if you want, there is a shop later up. Continue 
North to the white square, there is a Save Sphere in the shop, enter the shop 
and an event will occur about Lulu's old guardians. Go left and the Al Bhed 
will give you a message from Cid. Blitzball has now been activated again, so 
play it and have some fun. Go to the Save Sphere and use it now.

Head Southwest from the Shop to find Belgemine again. Go in to battle her for 
the Aeon's Soul. This is a relatively easy battle. Bahamut or Ifrit should be 
more than enough to take her down. You win and you get an Aeon's Soul and 30 
Power Spheres, the Aeon's Soul lets you use spheres to upgrade an Aeon's 
statistics.

Head Northwest until you can see the Chocobo Catcher guy. Talk to him to be 
able to train a CHOCOBO! Check our Chocobo Training guide in the 
Minigames/Sidequests. Get on your new Chocobo and go West of the Chocobo 
catcher and get the Al Bhed Primer Vol. XXIII(23). Head South East and get the 
treasures in the corner. Continue North from there and go into the green 
square on the map [on the right not Northeast] and this is the Monster Arena. 
Check the Minigames/Sidequests for more information. He wants you to capture 
all the different species of monster in the Calm Lands, that isn't too hard. 
Buy the capture weapon from him and set out to find them. Most of them are 
just random across, but it took me an hour to figure out where are those darn 
Chimera Brain, they are in a grassy area just a little North of the ramp of 
where you came in. Capture them and you will be rewarded an easy 60 Farplane 
Winds. Okay to get the Cloudy Mirror check the Minigames/Sidequests section 
for more information.

To get to Remiem temple go to where you first came in and go to where the 
Chocobo Feather is, press X up to it and you will jump across. Head through 
the path until you see the HUGE Remiem Temple. Head left of the entrance to 
find the Al Bhed Primer Vol. XIV(24). To race go to the right side, win to get 
a Cloudy Mirror. Go all the way back to the Calm Lands. [Don't bother going 
into the temple for now, its useless, read about the Aeon on Magus Sisters in 
the Aeons section]. Head to the Northeast exit of the Calm Lands and save at 
the Save Sphere. Go forward and Guado will be their. They will Release a big 
'ol machina called Defender X. Well the nice Calmness of the Calm Lands has 
faded. Boss battle.

================================================
BOSS: Defender X
HP: 64,000
MP: 1
AP: 6,660
GIL: 3,500
STEAL: (Norma/Rare) 4x Lunar Curtain
WEAKNESS: Armor Break
ITEMS: 1x Lvl. 2 Key Sphere

This guy is plenty hard. First take out Auron and do some Armor and Mental 
Breaks. Have Tidus use Hastega on everyone or just Haste individually on 
everyone. After the Mental and Armor breaks, have Auron switch out for Lulu, 
who should do Waterga or Thundaga. Yuna should be casting Protect on everyone 
to help stop the pain of Defender X's attacks. Have Tidus use Cheer on 
everyone, if you got it. Bring out Wakka for Dark Buster if you need it. If 
you bring out an Aeon make sure it can withstand at least 2 of Defender X's 
attacks, because by then it will have enough Overdrive power to unleash an 
Overdrive. After that it's a goner.

=strategy/suggestion by: xxcrimsondragon=
I found it really simple that all you have to do is have Tidus use his Provoke 
skill, this will make the boss only attack Tidus with the attack that HALVES 
the characters current HP, thus he will never kill Tidus.
================================================

After that battle go under the bridge. On the next screen take a right and 
follow it until you see a Sword sticking out of the ground, Press X to receive 
the Rusty Sword. The Rusty Sword is used for Auron's ultimate weapon. On the 
left is the Cave of Stolen Fayth. 

In there is also an Aeon you can acquire, named Yojimbo.  He is basically a 
mercenary for hire.  You must pay him to join you, so make sure you have at 
least 200,000+ GIL before setting out towards him.  He is OPTIONAL, and as 
such, the guide is in the side quest area.

If you wish to get him now, go for it.  You might as well do him now to get 
him out of the way.  Press CTRL + F to bring up the Find window and type in 
C03 to head to the Cavern of Stolen Fayth walkthrough.

Destruct, Doom, Mighty Guard)
:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:

When you first enter you will be hounded by the Ronso. Talk to the people and 
save your game. Talk to the guy by the Red Arrow on the Minimap to see what 
happened to Kimahri's horn. Continue up and Biran and Yenke attack. Make sure 
you have the best weapon for Kimahri and have the Regen Armlet which will make 
you invincible.

================================================
BOSS: Biran / Yenke
HP: Varies for both of them.
MP: 200 each
AP: 9,000
GIL: 3,000
STEAL: (Normal) 1x Lvl. 3 Key Sphere (Rare) 2x Lvl. 3 Key Sphere [From Both]
WEAKNESS: None
LANCET: Yenke: Fire Breath, Aqua Breath, Stone Breath, White Wind
        Biran: Thrust Kick, Self-Destruct, Doom, Mighty Guard
ITEMS: 1x Return Sphere

First off this is what I did. I scanned them and I found out I can Lancet TONS 
OF ABILITIES from them! Doom included.  Since their HP varies, Scan gives you 
a good idea of how much HP they have.  You can get the entire Lancet set if 
you missed them throughout the game, the only ones they don't have are: Seed 
Cannon, Bad Breath, and Nova.   

Keep Lanceting both of them until they have nothing left to give (4 times 
each). Heal up if needed then use physical attacks when they are spread out or 
else one will Guard the other and your attack will be reduced greatly. If you 
kill one, the other will use Haste on himself. Use Mighty Guard when they 
enter this state.  Using White Wind here is a smart decision as well. This 
battle should be a breeze if you execute it correctly.
================================================

After the battle, return to the Save Sphere and save your game. Now you can't 
play Blitzball anymore for a while. Continue and on the right is a chest with 
10,000 GIL. After that, go left to find some Mega-Potions. There are graves of 
summoners where Lulu tells you where they have died. They are all over. When 
you go along the path keep to the TOP or RIGHT of your character. You will 
find a crevice where a Braska Sphere is. Auron will learn another Overdrive. 
There is also a Defending Bracer which is up on a ledge. Where there is a T-
intersection. Continue towards the red arrow and you will eventually meet 
Wantz.

O'aka's brother has decided to take up his brother's profession of being a 
merchant. He will give you a story about what happened to O'aka. After that 
buy some stuff if you want to and continue on. Look on the Minimap for a half 
donut turn on the side. Down this little path is an HP Sphere and a Lvl4 Key 
Sphere. Continue on to where the Red Arrow is and until you see the Save 
Sphere. SAVE and get EVERYONES [including Aeons] Overdrives built up and get 
ready for the battle of your life.

================================================
BOSS: Seymour Flux / Mortiorchis
HP: (Seymour Flux): 80,000  (Mortiorchis): 4,000
HP: (Seymour Flux): 512     (Mortiorchis): 512
AP: (TOTAL) 10,000
GIL: (TOTAL) 6,000
STEAL: (Seymour Flux - Normal/Rare): 1x Elixir
       (Mortiorchis): Nothing
WEAKNESS: None
ITEMS: 1x Lvl. 4 Key Sphere

=submitted by: RRAGANS=
On Seymour flux, if you have Rikku on Overdrive, you can mix Dream Powder and 
a Fire Gem to make Abaddon Flame, which casts poison and deals some nice 
amount of damage on Seymour and Mortiorchis. Every turn Seymour will lose 1500 
HP.

This guy is one bad dude. He will use an Attack that will Zombie your 
character and then cast Full-Life on it (instant death). He will use Cross 
Cleaver which does about 2,500 damage so be sure to use PROTECT to cut it in 
half. He will also use his deadly Total Annihilation spell.  To counteract it, 
USE SHELL, NOT PROTECT. [Thanks to =drumpunk10= for pointing this out to me]

Use a Mega-Potion to heal them after each blow, if one dies use a Phoenix Down, 
if 2 die, use a Mega Phoenix. He is also vulnerable to Silence Buster or 
Silence attacks. Use all of your Aeon's Overdrives then use all of your 
Character's Overdrives'.  Make sure they have there Overdrives or make sure 
you get in one good effective attack because after 1 move he will Banish your 
Aeon (Kills your Aeon instantly). If you did enough damage, he should be near 
death. If not just follow up with Physical Attacks to take him out..
================================================

Head out and follow the path. Look to the left of the pillars and a treasure 
chest should be sticking out. Grab the Saturn Crest. The next event is 
confusing and weird. When you regain control head onto the boat and into the 
door. Just keep listening and reading and when you wake up. Continue until you 
get to a cave. There are lots of new enemies here. If you didn't learn White 
Wind or Mighty Guard from Biran or Yenke do so NOW. Behemoth holds the Mighty 
Guard and Dark Flan carries White Wind. Capture all the new monsters you see.

There are HARD enemies up here. Level up, they give good AP, Behemoths around 
6000+ for each character, Dark Flan 4000+. Go up through the Cave of Gagazet 
and save at the Save Sphere and take a left. Go through and you will go into 
water. From now on you can only use Wakka, Tidus, Rikku in the water. Continue 
North until you see a ball with shields spinning around it. Get the time right 
and hit it and a treasure chest will appear and you will receive a Lvl 1 Key 
Sphere.

Go back to where the Save Sphere place was. Save and go up the steps to the 
left. You will be split up. Continue until you reach water again. Continue 
until you read a place with 3 colored lights floating around. Of course by now 
you figured out the color is the color of the character on the Sphere Grid.

Orange is Wakka
Green is Rikku
Blue is Tidus

Finish this and receive a Fortune Sphere and return to the room with the Save 
Sphere. Save and head right from the stairs onto the new path. Go in the water 
and find a cliff where there are 2 chests. 1 has a Return Sphere and the other 
has a Recovery Ring. Return once again to the main room and Save at the Save 
Sphere. Go on the left path again until you see an area where boulders have 
filled in a hole around the corner which leads to a treasure chest. Grab the 
Star Armguard go back to the main room again and save. Go up the stairs and 
take a left on the new passage. Continue until an event occurs. Save again and 
build up the overdrives and continue up the path to the top to face a boss!

================================================
BOSS: Sanctuary Keeper
HP: 40,000
MP: 256
AP: 16,500
GIL: 6,500
STEAL: (Normal) 1x Turbo Ether / (Rare) 2x Turbo Ether
WEAKNESS: None
ITEMS: 1x Return Sphere

When you start off just setup the basic Haste/Hastega and Protect, and Slow it. 
Unleash all your Overdrives before he attacks or he will cause CURSE disabling 
that character's Overdrive. If they do get affected just use a Holy Water, if 
you have one. If you don't have one then wait for that character to die and 
revive it then do the Overdrive. 

Before you Summon Aeons', cast Reflect on the Sanctuary Keeper or you will 
never win. After you use your Overdrive he will unleash a lot of attacks, 
ending with Mana Beam followed by a Curaga. Can you believe Curse affects 
Aeons too? If you did the Reflect like I told you to, they should still be 
standing, like Bahamut.  The Curaga is going to be reflected to just to heal 
you back so it's an easy 9999 HP.
================================================

After this an event will occur, Yuna dropped a sphere with her goodbyes. After 
that continue on the path until another scene occurs.

You're almost done with the game! What a shame :(. When you guys get ready to 
go again, save to the left. Continue on the path, it's rather linear. Follow 
the path until you reach the dome. If you encounter undead enemies (Fallen 
Monk) use a Phoenix Down/Life to instantly kill it. For other enemies just use 
the regular Armor Breaks and Haste. Look out for a Fortune Sphere and a 
Spiritual Targe. Level up on this path as much as you can because there are 
enemies that are easy that give as much as 11,100 AP a battle!!!

Continue on follow the path and keep your eye out for a chest with 10,000 GIL 
in it. When you see the ghost of Seymour, go East for a Friend Sphere. 
Continue North and you will see memories of Braska, until you find the Temple. 
Look around in the debris for a Luck Sphere. Yay, save and continue in. 

#########################################################
######### Cloister of Trials - Zanarkand Temple #########
#########################################################
This temple is as easy as they come. First, go in and step on the green dot 
and it will become a square. Next go up to the panel that just lit up and 
examine it. It will show lighted areas, you have to memorize them. You can 
examine the panel as much as you want if you are not sure.

Pick the correct ones and it will light up, pick a bad one and it will reset. 
Pick them all correct and a door and pedestals will pop open. Push in a 
pedestal go and solve the puzzle in the big room just like we did in the small 
room. Push all of them in and solve each one except the 2 middle ones. Go in 
the big room and take the red Kilika Sphere and insert it in the red pedestal 
and it moves inwards. Take the blue sphere and insert it into the right one 
and it moves inwards. 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Save at the new Save Sphere. Go out and get all the Overdrives for everyone 
including the Aeons and steal lots of Holy Waters as you will really need them 
for the boss after this one. Go to the new room and get ready!

BOSS: Spectral Keeper
HP: 52,000

STEAL: (Normal) Ether / (Rare) Turbo Ether
WEAKNESS: None
ITEMS: 1x Lvl. 4 Key Sphere

This is easy if you leveled up. If not, it might be a problem. Begin with 
Wakka, Tidus, Auron. Have Tidus cast Hastega and Auron and Wakka use both 
their Overdrives. When that's done use Tidus's Overdrive and switch Wakka for 
Yuna. Bust out Bahamut, Ifrit, and all the other Aeons you want and use their 
Overdrive. I only got to use Bahamut and Ifrit before it died. The monster 
will use a Glyph Mine which blows up your Aeon instantly which sucks.
================================================

Save at the Save Sphere. Get out of the temple and go to the dome, grab Holy 
Water, level up a bit, and get the Overdrives filled. Go save again and 
continue go down the entrance. You will get into about 2 events before you 
fight this so just listen to what they have to say.

================================================
BOSS: Yunalesca
HP: (FORM1): 24,000  (FORM2): 48,000  (FORM 3): 60,000

WEAKNESS: None
ITEMS: 1x Lvl. 3 Key Sphere

FORM1: Just use regular attacks, she will just Blind if you do so, counter 
attack with Eye Drops/Esuna/Remedy. Use Wakka, Tidus and Auron. Knock her out 
down until she transforms.

FORM2: She will now start to cast Hell Biter, which Zombies your characters 
and does a decent amount of damage. Counter with Holy Waters and use 
everyone's Overdrives but not Yuna's. She should die after a couple of hits. 
Heal when
necessary but don't heal while in Zombie status or you will kill yourself. She 
should die shortly after that.

Numerous reports indicate that if you are Zombified when Yunalesca changes to 
Form3 and casts Mega Death, the Mega Death will not affect those Zombified. 
Therefore it is best to keep at least 1 person Zombified as to not get wiped 
out.

FORM3: This is the hardest one. She casts Mega Death right off the bat and she 
casts Hell Biter [zombies all characters + damage] a lot and will Absorbs your 
HP. Osmoses all your MP. Start off by summoning Bahamut. Use his Mega Flare 
and
it should take off a significant amount. Don't get all excited if he lives 
because he will no longer be able to use his Overdrive because Yunalesca will 
cast Curse on him. Just use Impulse or Attack until Bahamut dies. Pull out all 
other Aeons and use them till the end. This will knock off a lot of her HP. 
Use regular attacks and she should die. HARD battle but you can pull it off.
================================================

Look around the battle area for the Sun Crest [top left]. Go South and walk 
out and talk to Auron he will explain some things to you. Now save and get out 
of the dome place until Cid comes with the Airship.

NOW is the time to level up and get the Ultimate Weapons [located in the 
Ultimate Weapons section]. Get the other Aeons and whatnot. Go up to the cabin 
cockpit and talk to Cid after speaking with others. Give him coordinates

Head to Bevelle. Go to the high bridge and run into the guards. After a long 
event, a new option appears in your Airship called Sin. Go to it if you have 
completed everything else there is to complete. Head to the top and get ready.

================================================
BOSS: Left Fin / Right Fin
HP: 65,000 each
MP: 999 each
AP: (TOTAL) 34,000
GIL: (TOTAL) 20,000
STEAL: (Left Fin - Normal) 1x Mega Potion
       (Left Fin - Rare) 1x Supreme Gem
       (Right Fin - Normal) 1x X-Potion
       (Right Fin - Rare) 1x Shining Gem
WEAKNESS: None
ITEMS: 1x Lvl. 3 Key Spheres

Start out with Tidus using Hastega. Have Yuna use Shell, Lulu double cast an 
Ultima/Flare. Bust out your black magic spells and attacks. Continue 
administering Items, Cure Spells, and Damage. Auron and Wakka are also good. 
Have Auron use Armor Break. Move the ship in to attack it with the close 
rangers. And back out when you are in fatal health.

Get in a couple hits before Sin attacks, as his attacks are a lot stronger 
close range. Use the same stuff for both fins.
================================================

Then you are forced to fight the sin core.

================================================
BOSS: Sin Core / Sinspawn Genais
HP: (Sin Core): 36,000  (Genais): 999
MP: (Sin Core): 999     (Genais): 200
AP: (TOTAL): 19,800
GIL: (TOTAL): 20,000
STEAL: (Sin - Normal): 3x Stamina Spring 
       (Sin - Rare): 4x Stamina Spring
       (Genais - Normal): 1x Star Curtain
       (Genais - Rare): 1x Shining Gem
WEAKNESS: (Sin): None
          (Genais): Fire (+50%) / Water (X)
ITEMS: 1x MP Sphere

First, take out the Sinspawn or it will absorb the attacks for Sin. Use 
Hastega on yourself then use Slow and Silence, Reflect if necessary ON the 
enemy to prevent it from healing itself. Kill off the Sinspawn and advance. 
Now take out
Auron and use Armor Break. Have him use physical attacks and have Lulu use 
Doublecast using Flare or Ultima. Copycat it if possible. If not use Holy or 
Just continue this, healing with Items mostly. Refrain from using lots of 
Healing Magic which reduces your MP use, as you will need it after this battle.

Kill it off fast and you will fight the head.
================================================

Sin's Head has the most HP you will ever see in the game, besides the Monster 
Arena super enemies. After the long scene, head to the top of the ship again.

================================================
BOSS: Sins Head
HP: 140,000
MP: 999
AP: 20,000
GIL: 12,000
STEAL: (Normal) Ether / (Rare) Supreme Gem
WEAKNESS: None
ITEMS: 1x Lvl. 3 Key Sphere

This guy now has an Overdrive which will pretty much destroy you. Giga-
Graviton will end your game, pure and simple it will. Use Armor Break, Hastega, 
have Kimahri use Mighty Guard or if you don't need help use Nova. Have Lulu 
use Doublecast > Flare/Ultima on it as usual. Yuna should be using Holy. Rikku 
Stealing or using Spare Change as money you will not need at the end of the 
game. When Sin pulls you further, use everyone else's Overdrives. Then bring 
in Yuna and use your Aeons to do their Overdrives. Hopefully this will finish 
it off. If not Hastega and use everything else you have. Resort to Double
Casting Ultima/Flare again and using Mega-Potions. Use Elixirs if you run low 
on HP and MP for Lulu. Physical Attacks should knock him off.
================================================

After you defeat Sin you will fly into Sin's shell, Yay. After you defeat Sin 
you can still return to the outer world. Use the mini-map to locate, using the 
red arrow.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
**NOTE: Random battles are like Mini-bosses, items are on the path you can 
find them.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
When you reach Seymour's place equip elemental protecting/absorbing armor. 
Also get the Overdrives up again.

================================================
BOSS: Seymour Omnis
HP: 80,000
MP: 999
AP: 24,000
GIL: 12,000
STEAL: (Normal) Shining Gem (Rare) Supreme Gem
WEAKNESS: Varies
ITEMS: Lvl 3. Key Sphere

First off, for a note the wheels behind him will determine the elemental 
properties. Scan him to see his weakness and use the opposite remember. 
Blizzard >< Fire, Thunder >< Water as most of you would think Water >< Fire. 
Counteract his magic with Nul-spells depending on the new element. Unload 
Overdrives on him including Aeons because they will only have 1 turn before he 
banishes them away. He also uses Dispel which eliminates your good spells and 
buffs. He also once in a while casts Ultima, you only need to really live 
through it and then heal up and it should be fairly easy.
================================================

After you defeat him, go to the Save Sphere and save. Go past and search the 
wall for a glyph. A message appears telling you to kill 10 fiends to open the 
door. You need to kill 30 fiends to open all the door and then you can pick up 
a Lvl. 4 Sphere.

When you reach a square platform and a symbol in it, go up and grab the chest 
for Wakka's Four-on-One. Across from it is the Defending Bracer. Go up some 
more and there is a ramp down to yet another chest with 20,000 GIL. Step on 
the platform next to it to access an HP Sphere and a Defense Sphere! Go all 
the way back to the ground. Go Northeast and look for an alcove with a 
building. Tidus will slide down (WHEEEE) so grab the Laevatein. Run around the 
walls pressing X and climb out the hole. Go up the ramp and you find a Save 
Sphere which is the last one you will see.

As you go North the tower crashes. Move towards it.  Watch out for those 
icicles flying around, if you are hit you will be forced into a battle. Stand 
in one spot until the camera switches angles, and if a white light starts to 
glow under Tidus's feet run towards where the camera is to see the area. 
Crystals will form and if you run up to them and touch them before they 
disappear. You will get an item! If you get 10 you will go on to fight the 
final enemies

================================================
BOSS: Braska's Final Aeon / Pagoda
HP: (1st Form): 60,000 / (2nd Form): 120,000 / (Pagoda): 7,000
MP: (1st Form): 100 / (2nd Form): 100 / (Pagoda): 500
AP: (TOTAL): 0
GIL: (TOTAL): 0
STEAL: (Braska's Final Aeon - Normal): 1x Turbo Ether
       (Braska's Final Aeon - Rare): 1x Elixir
WEAKNESS: None
ITEMS: None.

Start off by using Doublecast and using Flare to knock out the Pagoda, and 
using Hastega. The trick is how much Hp you knock it off with, it will revive 
itself with that much. Use Lulu to Double Cast Ultima and have Yuna use Holy. 
Tidus can talk to the Final Aeon, when you talk to it, it will reduce its 
Overdrive. It's best to use this when its almost full because you only can use 
it a couple times. When you take 60,000 HP of it killing its 1st form cast 
Protect on everyone and Auto-Life which is a must have. Use all the overdrives 
you have including Aeons, Characters. Use all the items you can get out as you 
won't need them if you beat the game.
================================================

Then after that comes the final boss of the game.
================================================
BOSS: Yu Yevon
HP: 99,999
MP: 1
AP: 0
GIL: 0
STEAL: Nothing
Weakness: None
ITEMS: None.

You will basically fight your own Aeons and then you will face him. If you 
notice in the help bar each of the Aeons say something about killing them is 
what they want and such.

These fights are a joke as you will have Auto-Life on the ENTIRE time; in 
essence there is no way to lose because it will always be on.

Defeat the Aeons and move on to the real guy. Don't use physical attacks or he 
will heal himself. Reflect will work. Just a basic boss battle, take out the 
Aeons and Overdrives. Really pathetic for the end boss, but then again he 
isn't the hardest boss in the game (check Nemesis).
================================================

Well that's the end. Hope you enjoyed it. Watch the ending. Hope this 
walkthrough helped you somewhat.

=Strategy/Tips by: Drewx19=
First of all, get near the Save Sphere past the travel agency towards 
Macalania woods not the one at the beginning coming from Guadosalam.  I'll 
explain later. Once you get there SAVE THE GAME ON AN EMPTY SLOT, and just 
face towards the Save Sphere not too close though be more towards the center 
of the path and when the bolt strikes and you jump back go right back to that 
magic spot just so you don't go all over the place. 

HERES A TIP: Make sure to have a piece of equipment with the NO ENCOUNTERS 
ABILITY.  Here's another tip, Make sure that the bolts are striking about 
every five seconds or so this is very important if you want to get this thing 
done within about 20 minutes or so with my help.  I almost forgot if you don't 
know how to dodge the bolts all you have to do is press the X button when the 
screen flashes, not before you have to do it right after the screen flashes I 
mean right after or you'll be sorry.  But the important thing though it is to 
not have anyone in the room to distract you, and most importantly DON'T BLINK 
WHEN THE SCREENS ABOUT TO FLASH, because you will miss it and boom all your 
work you put in is gone, and I don't mean keep your eyes wide open for twenty 
minutes OK NOW READ CAREFULLY.

The key is to blink a few times to relax your eyes, then focus on the screen 
very carefully and try real hard not to blink when the screen is about to 
flash because if you have been reading this FAQ you should know that the bolts 
strike every 5 seconds or sometimes less, so don't blink too many times 
because if you do you will blink, and miss the flash, get struck and have to 
start all over. SO PAY ATTENTION BECAUSE I GUARANTEE THIS FAQ WILL HELP YOU TO 
BEAT THIS THING.

Now start practicing to get your timing down and a good feel for what you're 
doing.  So start DODGING BOLTS and if you learn quickly this should be easy 
enough I know because I did it and now THE ONION KNIGHT is powered up and it 
is AWESOME!! AND VERY WORTH THE TIME so don't get discouraged and not do it 
because it's hard, because it will be worth every second of your time when 
you're fighting all the fiends and bosses on your way towards SIN.

Back to the FAQ, now that you're well informed LISTEN UP, this is where it 
gets tricky start dodging bolts BY DOING EVERYTHING I SAID ABOVE I MEAN 
EVERYTHING.  Now start dodging and at the same time keep track in your head 
how many bolts you have dodged, what worked for me is right after you dodge 
twenty bolts pause the game, I mean when you're still in the air from jumping 
back pause the game that way you have time to move back into POSITION and get 
ready for the next flash. 

WAIT before you resume though put a tally mark on a piece of paper just to 
keep track so you don't try to count to 200 and get confused.  Continue doing 
this until you get to 200 bolts.  One more thing: after every forty bolts save 
the game on an EMPTY SLOT wait take this time to relax and let go of any 
tension you may have.  

Saving or Pausing the game DID NOT have any effect on the games ability to 
keep track of how many bolts you've dodged. I don't know if you save it and 
then restart it, if it will work because when I beat it I never got struck and 
dodged all 200 in a row, but feel free to try. What I suggest is to just reset 
the game and do it all over.  Just reload the original game not the 
sacrificial empty slot and go at it again. I know it may hurt but just do it. 
Or you can try and RESTART, DODGE, SAVE, GET STRUCK if you get struck, RESTART 
and if it works that's good and if it doesn't OH WELL.  You should have 
listened.

II. Butterfly Catcher -~- (C02) -~-
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
This miniquest is in Macalania Woods and starts with the guy playing the harp.

The first part is in Macalania Woods - Central.
Once you hit a multi-colored butterfly the games will begin.

This quest is pretty straight forward, once the time begins you have to 
capture blue butterflies and dodge the red ones at the same time. There should 
be 7 in all (the last one being down the slope) which are fairly hard to get 
while dodging red ones. Do not leave this area until you are finished 
capturing them all or you just wasted your time. If you win, a chest will 
spawn in the area in front of a tree so be sure to grab the Teleport Sphere 
from it.

After you have completed that, head to Macalania Woods - North. Hit another 
multi-colored butterfly to start the next one.  This one is much harder as the 
red butterflies appear more frequently and you have to run a lot further, in 
which most cases you will miss a butterfly or two. There are 7 in all as well, 
in this portion of the quest.

The entire quest is not all for nothing as if you complete both correctly you 
will receive the Saturn Sigil for Kimahri's Ultimate Weapon!

III. Cavern of Stolen Fayth  -~- (C03) -~-
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:
LOCATION: The Cavern of Stolen Fayth    :---:---:---: (C03) :
:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:
ITEMS: MP Sphere, Fortune Sphere, Mega Elixir, Lvl. 2 Key Sphere, 2x Mega-
Potion, 2x X-Potion, Strength Sphere

EQUIPMENT: Flexible Arm.

KEY ITEMS: Al Bhed Primer Vol. XXV(25)

ENEMIES: Dark Element, Defender, Epaaj, Ghost, Magic Urn, Mech Hunter, Thorn, 
Tonberry, Yowie

LANCET: Valaha (Fire Breath), Ghost (Doom)
:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:

To get here, go back to where you got the Rusty Sword in Mt. Gagazet. If you 
skipped it, it is under the bridge of where you fought Defender Z and left of 
the Save Sphere.

Go inside and get ready to navigate.  Head into the big room and go to the 
only exit on the right.  Keep following the path until there is a hall on the 
right; follow it to find a chest with a Mega Elixir.

Head back and continue along the path until you get to the fork.  Head right 
and get the chest for a Lvl. 2 Key Sphere.  After getting the sphere go up 
until you get to another fork, and head right.  Grab the chest here for a 
Fortune Sphere.  Head all the way back to the first fork in the path and go 
left.  Keep going until you hit an intersection and head left to pick up the 
Al Bhed Primer Vol. XXV(25)!  

Turn around and go right of the intersection.  Follow this path to the Save 
Sphere and save up.  Now is a good time to get the 2 Lancet's here for Kimahri, 
once you are near the Save Sphere.

Now head up and you'll see one of Lulu's old friends whom she use to guard 
before Yuna.  Now you will end up fighting Yojimbo one of the summoners Aeon's.

================================================
BOSS: Yojimbo
HP: 33,000
MP: 2000
AP: 0
GIL: 0
STEAL: None.
WEAKNESS: None.
ITEM: None.

This fight is sort of annoying; you have to fight both Yojimbo and his little 
pet.  However focus on Yojimbo and not his pet, as he will go with it.  Magic 
attacks work really well on him, or you can assault him with physical attacks 
while healing.  Bring out your Aeons' as a shield and damage dealers. 
Yojimbo's Overdrive will bring everyone down to 1 HP, which leaves you very 
vulnerable.  If you have an Aeon out it would take the brunt of the blow, or 
quickly heal up.  You could also Haste your party and protect them for some 
added assurance if this guy gives you trouble.
================================================

Once you have defeated Yojimbo you will be back in the cave.  Now teleport 
pads are activated throughout the entire cave for easy transport.

Head up and step on the teleport pad and teleport to the left first to get a 
Flexible Arm.  Go back and head right for a MP Sphere and 2x X-Potions.  
Teleport up this time and you will find Yojimbo.  Yojimbo is basically a 
mercenary Aeon and therefore you will require money to acquire his services 
and to utilize them.

When he asks you a question, answer: "To defeat the most powerful of enemies," 
to receive his lowest asking price. When he first gives you a price, offer him 
half of that + 1, so if he asks you for 250,000 GIL, counter it with 125,001 
GIL. At his next offer raise your bid by 1 GIL and by the time he proposes 
205,000 GIL, he'll accept anything around 200,000 GIL which saves you quite a 
bit of money. If you have money coming out of your ears and offer TRIPLE his 
asking price (in this case 750,000 GIL) he will give you 2x Teleport Spheres 
as well as joining you.

Once you obtain Yojimbo it will teleport you out, go back to where you met him 
and there will be a Strength Sphere in his place.  This is the end of this 
quest.

IV. Chocobo Training -~- (C04) -~-
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
Look to the top left of the Calm Lands, for a Chocobo rider person she will 
give you some advice on to ride a Chocobo and gives you like obstacle courses. 
Lets get started.

<Wobbly Chocobo:> Chocobo is out of control, you have to use left and right to 
set it straight and guide it to the end between the Chocobo and the Chocobo 
rider. If you finish in less than 12.8 seconds you can ride the Chocobo in the 
calm lands whenever you like. Cross in time and get a prize. 

<Dodger Chocobo:> After you complete Wobbly Chocobo you can do dodger Chocobo 
where Blitzball's fly at you and you have to dodge them and you get stunned 
when you get hit. Cross in time and get a prize

<Hyper Dodger Chocobo:> Same as Dodger Chocobo except the Blitzball's fly over 
head and they split into 5 or so Blitzball's while a bird comes flying at you. 
Personally this I took like forever to get, then after hours of cussing and 
frustration I got it. You can do it =]

<Catcher Chocobo:> You race the trainer Chocobo dude from the entrance to the 
exit of the Calm Lands, when you get hit with the bird it adds 3 seconds to 
your time, if you hit a balloon you get 3 seconds deducted. If you win this 
race you get the Caladbolg which is Tidus's ultimate weapon. Re-race in the 
Catcher Chocobo and if you finish in 0:0.0 seconds you get the Sun Sigil for 
it.

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
V. Cactuar Hunter -~- (C05) -~-
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
*thanks to =mjolner75= who made me realize i needed to update this section*

To do this you have to be on that island where the AL BHED town was. There are 
different Cactuars in which you play RED LIGHT, GREEN LIGHT, if you touch them 
you battle, when they turn around stop or they will run. All of the Cactuars 
are in Sanubia Desert, I will give what PART of Sanubia desert [cardinal 
direction] then where it is at. Each time you win you should get a sphere of 
some sort.

1. Near the OASIS - Right of the Save Sphere
2. East - North of the tent with the Save Sphere, take a left once to the top
3. West - 20% off sign West of the Cactuar rock, have to read the sign
4. Central -  Near the ruins to the West, 2 Cactuars are running around
5. East - Near the Save Sphere under the tent
6. Central - Trapped in a treasure chest in the far West
7. Central - Inside one of the sand whirlpools
8. Oasis - [This one ticked me off] First if you use a Save Sphere to return 
to the ship then return to Bikanel Island, exit the first screen then come 
back, THEN he will be their and will go on the airship, return to the Airship 
and go to the deck [place where you had to go to fight Evrae] and he is 
outside.
9. Cactuar stone - last one automatically appears behind you

After this you should of gotten all the spheres from the Cactuar. Then after 
you have gotten all of the spheres put them in the stone next to each Cactuar 
you have fought, once that is done the whirlwind should die down, now you 
should see a village and in 1 chest will be a SATURN SIGIL! and depending on 
how many spheres you won from the Cactuars in red light green light, (if you 
lose three times, you get a Sphere del Perdedor) and for each:

 ------------------------------------
| # of Named Spheres |      Item     |
|--------------------+---------------|
|          2         |    Potion     |
|--------------------+---------------|
|         3-5        |    Elixir     |
|--------------------+---------------|
|         6-7        |  Mega Elixir  |
|--------------------+---------------|
|         8-9        | Friend Sphere |
 ------------------------------------

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
VI. Blitzball -~- (C06) -~-
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Check the BLITZBALL section for info on this; also, you will get certain items 
in the league and tournament depending on what place you come in.

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
VII. Cloudy Mirror -~- (C07) -~-
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
When you get to Remiem Temple, You need to get a Chocobo to get to Remiem 
Temple, when you get one go to the entrance of the Calm Lands and examine the 
Chocobo Feather then go in the crevice it is right around the corner. When you 
get in front of Remiem Temple take a left and look at the sphere on the ground. 
Now go to the other side and press X on the Chocobo, and race. If you beat the 
other Chocobo, you will win the Cloudy Mirror. The Cloudy Mirror needs to be 
upgraded to the Celestial Mirror to be of any use.  The Celestial Mirror is 
required to obtain the Ultimate Weapons, Sigils, and Crests.

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
VIII. Celestial Mirror -~- (C08) -~-
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
First you need to go to the Macalania Woods - South, You will see a boy and 
his mother. Stop by and talk to them you will see the father is missing, go to 
the far right path. Next screen you will go right then go North on the next 
screen. Talk to the man on the very right, which is the boy and mothers 
husband, so being nice tell him where they are. 

When you get there the kid should be missing. Talk to the mother and the 
father again THOROUGHLY or the person will not move in the next part! Then go 
left onto the shining path thingy. Then when you come to a fork take a left 
[If a person is their then go talk to the mother and father again till they 
repeat everything]. The kid is here and when you talk to him he will lead you 
to an area where you can upgrade the Cloudy Mirror to the Celestial Mirror. 
This enables you to open some chests, get sigils, crests, get celestial 
weapons. 

Also come here once you get the sigils, crests, and weapon and it will combine 
them all to get your final weapon!

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
IX. Rusty Sword -~- (C09) -~-
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Go to the exit of the Calm Lands [Northeast], and go to the area where you 
fought Defender X, go over the bridge and go under the second. Just follow the 
path take the right path, the sword is in the ground, take the left and that 
is the Cave of Stolen Fayth that is where Yojimbo lies [Aeon]. If you manage 
to not die on your way to him and defeat him, you can hire him to be on your 
team.

Check the Aeons Section for more details. Anyways, back on track. I bet your 
all asking what's the point of this Rusty Sword? Well you can get Auron's 
Ultimate Weapon with it. [Check the Ultimate Weapon Section on getting his 
Ultimate Weapon]

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
X. Monster Arena -~- (C10) -~-
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
When you get to the Calm Lands you can go see the Monster Arena guy, he has 
accidentally let all the monsters loose all over Spira and wants you to 
capture 1 of each for him because he simply can't anymore. But some of his 
weapons with CATCHER equipped on it and set out, when you get 1 of each 
monster

Capture all the monsters from 10 different places for the Mars Sigil Also when 
you capture all the monsters from an area, the monster arena guy will give you 
rare items and when you capture 10 of each in the area. I added a list of the 
monsters needed if you need to know which you are missing.

2. Arena Conquests -~- (C12) -~-
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~~-~-~-~-~-~
What is a Conquest? A conquest is a task you must complete by capturing 
monsters through the monster Arena.  Each Conquest is somewhat different and 
unlocks various things in the game including the hardest boss in the game 
Nemesis.  

Conquests can go fast or slow, all depending on how well you know monster 
areas and spawns.  Even if you aren't hardcore enough to go for Nemesis, just 
completing even 1 area of the objective will net you awesome rewards.  They 
are even better if you do all of the objectives to complete the full conquest. 

In addition to prizes for conquering the things listed below, you will unlock 
really hard bosses in the arena in which to fight.  Each boss is very tough 
and drops great items needed in high end weapon/Aeon customization.

And the only real challenge in FFX is Nemesis.  Although, if you have the 
International Version, the Dark Aeons will be on par with how hard Nemesis is.

3. Nemesis -~- (C13) -~-
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
MONSTER ARENA BOSS: Nemesis
HP: 10,000,000 HP
LANCET: Nova (If you missed it from Omega Weapon here is your only time to get 
it.)

Well after you beat him you have nothing left to do in the game, the game is 
just going to sit there unless you want to play again. The best thing to do is 
to max out some of your abilities using spheres gained using Species Conquest 
[AGILITY and STRENGTH ARE MUSTS] and learn Quick Hit with all your strongest 
guys. First off cast HASTEGA or haste on whomever, then use Auto-Life with 
auto-life your invincible. Use Quick attack with everyone if you have Auto-
Life on everyone. 

Don't use Overdrives unless you like a nice powerful Ultima to snack on. He 
uses things like Ethereal Cannon, Physical attacks, Armageddon [99,999 to all 
no matter what], Ultra Spark. These are all very hard to live through. Ultra 
Spark does about 30,000+ even with Defense and Magic Defense maxed out plus 
adds poison. Ethereal is easy to live through, so is his physical attack. With 
Def maxed and Protect up it only does 7000 damage or so. Quick attack is your 
best hope.

CHESTS OF OMEGA RUINS
=submitted by: thgink999=
===================================
"Hi, I was playing around with the Omega Ruins treasure chests (over and over, 
I might add) and found something I have not seen in ANY other FAQ to date."

It is true there is no obvious order to opening chests or will the chests have 
the same items between each save. It's all TOTALLY random. The only thing 
that's NOT random is the items you will receive; in other words you will get 
all of the items below even if you don't get them in the same order. So what's 
the point in doing this? IF you open ALL the chests WITHOUT a fight, the 
contents of the LAST will have 99x Warp Sphere!! Talk about a prize!

"Here's the list of items to be found in the Omega Ruins Chests. This is the 
actual order I received them last time I did it starting with the small room 
on the right as you enter the Ruins and continuing clockwise on the map ending 
up at the four chests."

1) 1x Lvl.4 Key Sphere
2) Defending Bracer
3) Turnover
4) 2x Lvl.3 Key Sphere
5) Defending Armlet
6) Friend Sphere
7) 1x Lvl.4 Key Sphere
8) Phantom Ring
9) Cactuar Wizard
10) War Monger
11) 2x Teleport Sphere
12) 99x Warp Sphere
:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:---:

I recommend getting Yuna's Ultimate Weapon and/or Tidus's Ultimate Weapon 
before coming here. (For more info on Ultimate Weapons check the Ultimate 
Weapons section.)

To get to the Omega Ruins you need to have the Airship and able to input 
coordinates: Here are the coordinates if you missed them [X: 67-75 / Y: 33-38]

Once you enter you will a small event telling the history of the Omega Ruins. 
This is probably one of the hardest areas in the game as all of the monsters 
are very challenging. The minimap won't be of any use here until you have 
completely scouted the dungeon. 

When you see a hallway, go right until you come to a treasure chest area. This 
is the first treasure chest needed for the Omega Ruins Chest game (1). Pick 
the wrong one and you will be attacked and the treasures disappear. 

Go back to where the Save Sphere is, and then go left and you will find 
another chest there (2). Return to the Save Sphere and save if needed. From 
there take a left, then right, then left and follow the path to the glyph on 
the wall. 

Go North from there, to a room that has 4 treasure chests, get the treasures. 
The Al Bhed Primer Vol. XXVI. Go Northwest from this room into a corridor, 
follow it to another glyph. Activate the glyph. Go to the central area and a 
bridge leading to a chest will be their. Grab the Teleport Sphere and move on.

Continue to the room with 4 chests and go Northeast where there is a pad. 
Above Ultima Weapon is their. Step on the elevator and go straight you will 
now fight......

================================================
BOSS: Ultima Weapon
HP: 70,000
MP: 1
AP: 40,000
GIL: 20,000
STEAL: 10x Door's to Tomorrow
WEAKNESS: Nothing
ITEMS: 3x Lvl. 3 Key Sphere
BRIBE: 1,400,000 for 99x Pendulum

An easy way to beat him is just to use Bribe and bribe him for 1,400,000 GIL 
to get 99x Pendulum. If you choose to fight him have Tidus use Hastega have 
Yuna use Valefor's Energy Blast and Ultima Weapon should be gone for close to 
3/4 of his life. Finish it off with your Main Characters or just other Aeons. 
If you don't want to use that method go with Hastega, Shell, and Protect. 
Regen will work if you have that. Use everyone's Overdrives and he should be 
dead. If not, follow up using Aeons Overdrives and he's a goner. This is 
easier than I would have expected.

=suggestion by: MistaK=
For Ultima weapon all I'd really suggest is that you get armor that equips 
against status ailments (Stoneproof, Confuse proof, Auto-med) and try to 
inflict silence and darkness on him since he's not completely immune to them... 
you can steal from him to gain 10 doors to tomorrow, which will let you add 
the Overdrive to AP ability to a weapon

================================================

Save after that at the Save Sphere and continue. Along this path are Enemies 
in each circle. Defeat them on the way. Also there is a Friend sphere around 
here on the left. Go back to the entrance when you on past the entrance and 
when you are nearing the end. Heal your guys completely and save. Move into 
the circle at the end.

================================================
BOSS: Omega Weapon
HP: 99,999
MP: 1
AP: 50,000
GIL: 30,000
STEAL: 30x Gambler's Spirit
WEAKNESS: All Magic (-50%)
ITEMS: 3x Lvl. 4 Key Spheres
LANCET: Nova

Be sure to Lancet the Nova off of him, or else you have to do an incredibly 
LONG side quest to get to a boss that does. He is slow so use Hastega. Use 
Overdrives and Aeons overdrives. Use Esuna, and if you want 
Protect/Shell/Regen/Auto-Life if you want security. This fight is way easier 
than in the past Final Fantasy's, I am sort of disappointed but what can I say? 
He's not the strongest in the game.

=suggestion by: MistaK=
well omega's immune to pretty much every status ailment, so its probably best 
to strengthen your own defense with Hastega and shell and maybe skills like 
focus, he uses mostly magic attacks so shell helps a lot and magic works 
better than physically attacking cause his defense is a lot higher than his 
magic defense.

V. THE AL BHED -~- (D05) -~-
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~~-~-~-
Throughout Final Fantasy X, there is a language known as Al Bhed, you will 
find people who speak this language as well as signs written in Al Bhed. The 
only way to decipher the Al Bhed language is to collect the Al Bhed Primer 
Volumes which decipher the language by letter. 

Also in the world you will find a device called the Dictionary where you can 
save your Al Bhed information. You can also load the volumes from somebody 
else's memory card and then transfer them to yours. Doing this you can easily 
collect all of the volumes to complete your collection, even if you missed 
previous versions and your friends' did not.

first time around you won't be able to come back later in the game to get them.

If you have a lot of free time and you seriously want to know what people are

Play the game as normal until you find the Al Bhed's home city, go to the 
airship part, go to Wakka and press the Square button to hire him for 1 GIL 
per match! You can also hire Rikku's brother, Mr. Rin and any of the Al Bhed 
Sykes whose contracts have finished.

In other words you don't have to wait till you get the airship WAY later in 
the game to get these people!

[19.] THE CLOISTER OF TRIALS
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Here is the list and strategies of all the Temples, just refer here if you 
have to beat a temple and you don't want to look all through the walkthrough 
for the temples.

Here is a list of the spheres for anima's temple. This list goes by the point 
of view of when you walk in.
 ---------------------
| BESAID    | BEVELLE |
|-----------+---------|
| MACALANIA | DJOSE   |
|-----------+---------|
| ZANARKAND | KILIKA  |
 ---------------------
In other words to get anima you need to collect the destruction spheres of all 
the Cloister of Trials in the game.

#########################################################
## (F01) ## Cloister of Trials - Besaid Temple ##########
#########################################################
Examine the Glyph on the wall and watch it open the door, Go down the stairs 
and view the glyph with the sphere under it. Grab the glowing Glyph Sphere 
from the holder & go down the stairs. Put it in the door and then take the 
sphere back out. Keep going till you see a holder on the left, put it in to 
reveal a sphere. Don't take it just yet and go down the hall, examine the 
words to reveal a glyph. Touch the glyph and go into the hidden area.

Take the Besaid Sphere and put it into a pedestal and a new glyph should 
appear. Examine the glyph again and a hidden area comes up. Take the sphere 
and push the Pedestal into the next room but not all the way and insert the 
Besaid Sphere. Now go get the Destruction Sphere, return to the area where the 
Besaid Sphere was with all those lines and put it in. An area opens up with a 
treasure,

------------------------------------------------------------------------

######################################################
## (F02) ## Cloister of Trials - Kilika Temple #######
######################################################
Take the Kilika Sphere from the pedestal on the left and place it into the 
door. This will burn down the door. Grab that sphere again to extinguish the 
fire and go through the door. Put the Kilika Sphere into the spot on the 
Northern wall, A new glyph should appear.

Now take the Kilika Sphere and put it into the slot on the side. Touch the 
glyph to open the wall. Now take the Glyph Sphere and set it on one of the 
holders. Go into the new room and step on the shiny square in the next room to 
make the pedestal appear in that room. Now take the Kilika Sphere to the right 
of that room and place it into the pedestal. Now go into the other room and 
grab the Glyph sphere and insert it where the Kilika Sphere was, now push the 
pedestal onto the shiny thing and it will sink into the ground.

Go down the stairs and take the Kilika Sphere from below and place it into the 
slot next to the exit. Now go into the secret area you just uncovered before 
and grab the Destruction Sphere and take it down stairs and use it in the new 
slot below the ledge. Go in and grab the Red Armlet. Now take the sphere next 
to the burning door and walk through.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

#####################################################
## (F03) ## Cloister of Trials - Djose Temple #######
#####################################################
Take both spheres from the side walls and insert them both into the door. Head 
through the door, Take a sphere next to the door and put it into the either 
slot on the far right side. Take the other and insert that into the other hole 
on the right side. Now the pedestal on the ceiling should light up. Push the 
pedestal in the middle of the room to the right, right under where that 
pedestal is to charge the sphere and make it super shiny. Take the charged up 
sphere and place it to the right of the door. This should open it. Step on the 
floor glyph that's shining to the left.

Take the 2 spheres from the right of the room and put them on both sides of 
the pedestal. Push the pedestal into the lightning pit and hop across. Push 
the Pedestal so it goes inward and light on the eyeball of the bird thing 
lights up.

Go back and step on the shiny floor glyph to the left again and take the 2 
spheres from it and put them all the way back to where you took the first 2 
spheres to open the door. Put both of them in each slot. So the whole thing 
should be lit up accept the head. Take the charged sphere and place it to the 
left of the door. The door should seal but it creates a floor lift to the top 
level.

Once up their push all 5 of the pedestals inward [2 are hidden on the very 
right and left], a door to stairs should open up, STOP RIGHT THERE. Ride to 
the lower level again. Go to where the shiny floor glyph that resets the 
pedestal is, don't step on it but a new glyph should appear in front of it. 
Press X up to the glyph and Touch It, It should lead you to a Destruction 
Sphere. Now take that sphere and ride to the top. Put it into the pedestal and 
grab the treasure. And then go up the stairs.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

########################################################
## (F04) ## Cloister of Trials - Macalania Temple ######
########################################################
Begin by taking a left and going down the steps and go to the middle pillar 
and grab the Glyph Sphere. Put this one into the pedestal. Push the Pedestal 
to the right and it runs into the ice. Now push it forward and it flies down 
another ramp. Go down and take that sphere out and put it in the very left-
most slot on the wall. Go up the ramp and take the Macalania Sphere from the 
new wall that came up.

Go down to the pedestal and put it in, now push the pedestal to the right. A 
part of the bridge should of appeared. Now once again go back up and grab the 
sphere on the very right.  Go down the ramp and put it in the left pillar. 
Take the sphere next to the ramp going down and put it in the middle pillar. 
Go up the ramp to where you first started and step on the shining floor glyph 
to return the pedestal to the top. Once that is accomplished, take the sphere 
and push it down the ramp.

Go down the ramp to where the pedestal was ORIGINALLY and step on the shining 
floor glyph to the left. Take the Macalania Sphere in your hand and put it 
into the far right slot making the ice re-appear. Take the sphere from the 
middle pillar again and put it into the slot by the ramp to make the ramp re-
appear. Take the Destruction Sphere from the Pedestal and go down the ramp and 
put it into the slot left of the doorway.

Go down the tiny ramp and open the chest. Take it and lets get out of here. Go 
back up the ramp and push it to the right so it hits the ice again, take the 
sphere on the very right and put it into the pedestal. Push the pedestal North 
again and it will go back to the basement. Push it right to make the bridge 
re-appear. Now go up the ramp and grab the sphere by the ramp to make it 
disappear. Place that into the middle pillar and go up the main ramp and leave.

## (F05) ## Cloister of Trials - Bevelle Temple #########
#########################################################
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
**NOTE: Bevelle is the only temple in the game where the destruction sphere is 
required to proceed within the game; therefore you cannot miss it even if you 
wanted to. In which case, this sphere will always be lit up at Anima's temple.

You cannot re-enter the Bevelle Cloister of Trials later in the game.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
When you first enter push the pedestal forward and it will turn into a 
platform, taking you down. Hit X so you go forward. On the first turn when the 
arrow points right hit X and you will take a right. Now it takes you all the 
way to the bottom. Take the sphere from the holder and place it into the 
pedestal. Push the pedestal onto the path from where you came. It will turn 
into the elevator thingy. When you go straight up take a right and take the 
next right [second right from where you first started].

Take a Bevelle Sphere and place it into the holder. Push it back into the path 
and go to the end and fall off. When you start from the previous place this 
time take the left and take the sphere and insert it into the pedestal. Push 
it onto the path and ride to the end and fall off. From the starting place 
take a right ride to the next floor and take a left and ride it to the end and 
take the right. Take a Bevelle Sphere and insert it into the holder, this will 
open a path to a Destruction Sphere, but we can't get it just yet. Push the 
pedestal back into the path and you will fall off. When you start you will be 
on the second level, stay on that level DO NOT go up to the first level.

NOW from the new start take the second left and take the Glyph Sphere at the 
end and insert it into the Pedestal. Push the pedestal back onto the path and 
take a right at the very end again. This time, take a Glyph Sphere and put it 
into the Glyph which will give you access to the Destruction Sphere. Take it 
and put it on the pedestal.

Fall off and when you start from the new beginning again, take the second 
right and insert the Destruction Sphere there. Push the pedestal back onto the 
path and ride to the very end again. Take the Bevelle Sphere and insert it 
into the pedestal. Push it back in and you will fall off again.

From the new start take the first right [not where you got the VERY FIRST 
sphere]. When you get onto the little land thing, push the pedestal over the 
side and onto the new path. Ride it and you should switch. It will take you up 
to a new place. Go up and open the treasure and step on the shining glyph to 
put the pedestal up there. If you followed this guide you should have 2 
Bevelle Spheres, which is good if not, I feel sorry for you. Take 1 sphere and 
insert it into the holder. Push it to the left and ride the short ride to the 
end and grab the treasure. Ride back over and take a right.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

#########################################################
## (F06) ## Cloister of Trials - Zanarkand Temple ######
#########################################################
This temple is as easy as they come. First, go in and step on the green dot 
and it will become a square. Next go up to the panel that just lit up and 
examine it. It will show lighted areas, you have to memorize them. You can 
examine the panel as much as you want if you are not sure.

Pick the correct ones and it will light up, pick a bad one and it will reset. 
Pick them all correct and a door and pedestals will pop open. Push in a 
pedestal go and solve the puzzle in the big room just like we did in the small 
room. Push all of them in and solve each one except the 2 middle ones. Go in 
the big room and take the red Kilika Sphere and insert it in the red pedestal 
and it moves inwards. Take the blue sphere and insert it into the right one 
and it moves inwards.


##################################################################
## (F07) ## Cloister of Trials - Zanarkand Temple #2 Visit #######
##################################################################
Zanarkand is the one you need. Go back into the temple you will meet Yuna's 
Rival, after the little talk go back in and step on all 3 white squares in the 
first room and all the white squares in the big one, if you mess it up all the 
white squares in both rooms will reset. This opens up a Destruction sphere 
grab it and put it into the right side of the panel in the big room. A 
treasure will open up and you will get the Magistral Rod. Go back to the Baaj 
Temple and go back to the room they will now open up a door for you to make 
him accessible. You will also learn a little more about Seymour.

For mixing in FFX, that is Rikku's Overdrive, she will be able to combine 2

[22.] BRIBE LIST
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Bribe in Final Fantasy X is where you pay your enemies to leave and in return 
they give you rare items and all sorts of stuff. Sometimes they won't leave 
when you pay them, which is not fair hehe and they may not give you the items 
number that is listed below which still isn't fair. Oh well, you can only get 
most of these items by bribing or by Monster Arena. CB! made a huge Bribe list 
(surprised?] well here is her list to save up more loading time.

[24.] GAME FEEDBACK
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
I got bored and I have loved all the emails you all have sent me complimenting. 
I liked this game a lot and I want to know what YOU think. I will choose the 
first 5 people who email me answering ALL of these questions. You email will 
be posted next to what you have said. I will also put my opinions below first. 
The people will be added next version.
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
NO MORE FEEDBACK PLEASE, I DID THIS SO PEOPLE WHO DONT HAVE THE GAME WOULD GET 
OTHER PEOPLES OPINIONS, THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO SUBMITTED :)
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
===============================================
1. What did you like about Final Fantasy X
===============================================

spira: I liked the music, the voice acting, the battle system, ability to go 
over max damage, and enemies more stronger than the final boss [MONSTER ARENA] 
so I don't beat it and lock her back up into the case.

Drogan5645: Everything. The game was just awesome. I liked the music, the game 
play, the graphics, the characters, the enemies, and the sphere grid.

LordCornbread:  I liked the characters mostly because they were a little more 
active and not so boring as other games (although no character will ever be 
better than Aeris!), and the voice acting because a lot of the voices are the 
same as the voices from Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust.

promo: I liked really many things, from the storyline to the sphere grid 
system, music, Aeons and their possibility to boost 'em, and so on..

Propagator: The storyline is cool of course, and I like the fact that it is 
filled with multiple plot twists. The game doesn't linger in one area or theme, 
which I thought was also good, it keeps the interest high. I like the way the 
vocals are completely immersed into the game, and the graphics make it seem 
almost real.

brucelidat: The plot was pretty good so I'll just discuss game play. I usually 
like the old school traditional exp. build-up style, but the sphere grid was 
great. Also, the versatility in fighting was good; being able to
switch members out and change weapons, etc.

====================================================
2. What did you think they could of improved on?
====================================================

spira: Well, I wish their was a world map to go on instead of inputting 
coordinates. I also wanted some sidequests like FF7 where their was a lot to 
do. I wanted Chocobo to be more of use [E.G. FF7 was used to get certain 
materia, FF8 - used to get some cards and items, FF9-needed for ultimate 
weapon] all Chocobo's really did was help you across the calm lands and get 
you the sun sigil for Tidus. It would of been a great help if it was in the 
desert.

Drogan564: Difficulty. The game was a little too easy, compared to the other 
FF games.

LordCornbread: They could have improved on the complexity of the story a 
little straight forward and not as good as FFVII's.

promo: A sure thing is that the game was easy, no doubt on that the classic 
world map was a better i think, and there were not so many vehicles to be used 
manually, anyway a GREAT game!

Propagator: Well, I think Tidus needs some work, he seems like too much of a 
wuss at times. I think they should have found some middle ground between him, 
and his practical opposite, Squall, of Final Fantasy VIII.

Give you more choices, and make the choices already present carry weight. It 
seems like whenever you could choose something, both the choices came to the 
exact same conclusion.

Lastly, have Tidus go after Rikku or Lulu instead of Yuna. Yuna looks like a 
boy, and her help everyone and always be gentle passive attitude started to 
piss me off after a while.

brucelidat:  I agree that the world map of old was better. Otherwise, more 
exploration which has been lacking since FF7 would have been nice. It was 
pretty good for a very linear-story game though. Yuna sort of gets annoying 
after a while, she seems too unrealistic, not enough depth or emotion, too 
simple and well, stupidly naive.  Finally, secrets and stuff are great, but 
they should not be so crazy that most normal gamers would never be able to 
discover them without using a guide. Old greats like FF3 and FF7 gave you 
enough hints that most avid, but not obsessed gamers could figure it out and 
enjoy it.

====================================================
3. What are your 3 favorite characters in FFX?
====================================================

spira: personally Tidus, Jecht, Yuna

Drogan564: Tidus, Auron, and Yuna, I absolutely hated Wakka.

LordCornbread: Lulu, Auron, and Rikku. Wakka just reminded me of Zell on Speed.

promo: Auron, Tidus, Wakka and Yuna.

Propagator: Well, Tidus even though he seems like a pussy at times, Rikku, and 
Wakka, despite the fact that he is closed-minded about anything outside of 
Yevon's teachings.

brucelidat: Auron was the best, a hard-ass who said just enough at the right 
times. Rikku I like too even though I don't use her since she is weak. Tidus 
was pretty disappointing for the main character. I'd take Cloud or Sabin any 
day. His voiceover was irritatingly wussy. Yuna was dead in personality and 
annoying. The only reason you care for her is because Tidus does. Lulu was 
cool and everyone else was average.

====================================================
4. What did you think of the ending?
====================================================

spira: Was okay, not as good as expected

Drogan564: Great, I don't want to spoil it so I'll stop there.

LordCornbread: Could have been better.

promo: It was as beautiful as unexpected, it surprised me but it not in a bad 
sense.. another great job of Squaresoft.

Propagator: Honestly, I'm not there yet, but I think the storyline deserves a 
very good ending.

brucelidat: I've only seen the US one so I'll talk about that one. I like the 
happy ending and was disappointed. It was still better than FF8 though, that 
was horrible; FF3 and FF7 were much better. Now, however, I know why they did 
it, to milk more money out of us in the sequel.

====================================================
5. Did you think the puzzles could of been better?
====================================================

spira: yes, this game was easy to figure out where to go, first of all the 
mini-map let you know where everything was, even though that's a help, its 
sort of boring to know where you are going, because you miss important items 
when just going straight to it. second of all ff7, ff8, ff9 had secret places 
to go and required certain things to be done earlier and the only thing tricky 
on FFX was the cloister of trials.

Drogan564: Yes, all of them except maybe the Macalania Cloister of Trials were 
way too obvious and easy. There wasn't near as much challenge in FFX as in the 
other FF games.

LordCornbread: Some were good puzzles but mostly they could have been
harder.

promo: Yes, nothing more to say about that, already said the game is
easy.

Propagator: Yeah, they should have been harder, and there should have been 
more of them. Also, bonus puzzles would have been good, as well as more hidden 
areas in the current puzzles.

brucelidat: I think the cloisters could have been harder, well most of them at 
least. Bevelle was pretty damn annoying because you are not freely and easily 
controlling your movement. As for the game as a whole, i do not think it was 
too easy. If you're just playing it through for the plot and to beat it, it is 
not easy at all without any ultimate weapons or secret 
summons. I like to play the games through, beta them, then get all the extra 
stuff to see how kick-ass I am afterwards.  Past FFs (3-9) were easier for me. 
The hardest ever was FF2 (I always refer to their US release number so 3 is 6)

====================================================
6. What do you think about Seymour
====================================================

spira: He was cool at first but I gave him what was coming to him.

Drogan564: He's given WAY too much credit. He was a pitiful sick of crap with 
a really demented mind, that's it. Sephiroth far surpassed him in every aspect.

LordCornbread: Seymour was a really annoying pest that really was a great bad 
guy....better than Kuja.

promo: A boring dude, really i wanted to kill him since the first time i saw 
him ehe..

Propagator: The first time I saw him I knew I was going to hate him. He 
dresses like a homo, and the fact that he practically forced Yuna to marry him 
was just sad. But I suppose you aren't supposed to like him, he's the bad guy. 
He could have had a very good personality for a villain, but they didn't 
develop him enough.

brucelidat: Seymour was a damn prick. From the beginning I knew he was going 
to be a bad guy. I was just hoping the plot didn't have Yuna actually end up 
with him for a while before she discovered his true colors. It didn't so I was 
satisfied. his third form is a pain in the ass without overdriving Aeons 
though. pretty tough.

====================================================
7. Who was the best looking girl in FFX?
====================================================

spira: hmm, i would say Yuna or Lulu

Drogan564: Yuna or Rikku, they both looked good.

LordCornbread: Lulu definitely. Yuna looked better with her hair up
than down.

promo: Yuna.. i don't remember how many times i dreamt of her ?!?

Propagator: I would say Rikku, cause I'm a sucker for blondes, I like those 
short shorts she wears, and I didn't think Yuna was hot at all. It 
disappointed me when Tidus went after Yuna, cause Rikku would have been really 
easy to get. (example- comfort her in the Thunder Plains, or when Home is 
being attacked and destroyed) Lulu was cute too I guess, but she looked a 
little too much like a goth for me. I thought it was funny the way they tried 
to make her boobs bounce as many times as possible during battle. (Especially 
her little victory dance)

brucelidat: Cutest? Hmm, I'd say Rikku is the cutest during game play. Yuna is 
the prettiest during cinemas (she looked pretty  good with he hair up in the 
wedding scene) although her personality and overly sweet voice was constantly 
hanging in the back of my mind  detracting from her appeal. Lulu, though, 
would be the sexiest. She could have been a bit less pasty though

=======================================================================
8. If you could rate FFX on a scale from 1 - 10, what would it be, and why
=======================================================================

spira: 8, i mean it was good but a lot of stuff i felt was missing, can't put 
my finger on it, but it was less invigorating then when i was playing the 
other final fantasy's.

Drogan564:  8 - It was very, very good, but it could have been better. The 
main thing was the challenge. The story line and all was great, it was just 
too damn easy.

LordCornbread: 7.5. It had its good points and it was better than VIII and IX 
but it was too easy of a story to comprehend.

promo: 9, if it would harder it would be a 10 ;-)

Propagator: I would say a 9, because while it was great, the PS2 platform 
gives it potential to be greater. I didn't think it was unbearably easy, 
because I tried to follow the storyline and neglect fighting to make it harder, 
due to the fact that Final Fantasy VIII was extremely easy for me, because I 
fought so much instead of moving on with the storyline. ( Squall was at level 
100 by the end of the first disc. Sad, huh?)

brucelidat:  would give it a 9. It was the best in a while, but any game could 
be better. it ranks up there with FF3 and FF7 as my favorites. FF8 sucked in 
terms of FF standards and FF9 was good but too short.

=======================================================================
9. What would you say if the Final Fantasy series was ended after FFXII
=======================================================================

spira: I would be sad. Each of the games have there own unique quality. Even 
though it will stop I doubt it would be soon, as PS2 has just hit the market 
and they are still trying to max PS2's full potential [EXAMPLE: Remember how 
FF7 was sort of choppy in the graphics when it was the first PS game out? Then 
they went all the way to 9 which you see has improved considerably in graphics, 
i feel PS2 will be the same way]. Final Fantasy has been Squaresoft's best 
series and most beneficial in profits. But I guess it will be awhile before we 
see a FINAL Final Fantasy.

Drogan564: I would cry, then I would try to find a replacement, though I know 
now that there is nothing that even comes close to and equal to the FF
series.

LordCornbread: I would be very very very disappointed but Square has made one 
RPG that surpasses all and that is Xenogears.

promo: Suicide?, well that could be an idea ehe, no seriously i don't think 
they'll do something like that i perfectly agree with what Spira says about 
exploit the full power of ps2, as it was done with ps1 and FF9.. if Final 
Fantasy series will stop, something will drastically change in the world of 
video gaming and RPGs, at least for me.

Propagator: I would be mad, I really enjoy the games, more than any other RPG 
out there. I think that Squaresoft is started to try new things with their 
games, (I loved the sphere grid concept, as well as the turn concept, and the 
fact that weapons didn't really have rigid stats) I would be disappointed if 
they discontinued the series so soon in the future, they are capable of making 
much more.

brucelidat: it had better not, FF11 not only might not be releases here, but 
also doesn't look to hot because it is breaking away form what we all like 
about FF. If they want to do a MMORPG then just do a new game or at least a FF 
spin-off like tactics, don't use a spot in the main franchise on it.  I am 
older now and do not have the time I once did for gaming, but the Final 
Fantasy series is the one game I always buy. I bought PSOne for FF7 and bought 
PS2 for FF10. If the series ended, I would be pretty disappointed. I doubt it 
would though since, barring the movie, the franchise is Square's cash cow; 
money in the bank.

=======================================================================
10. Do you like my FAQ? Anything that needs to be added after V. 4.8
=======================================================================

spira: I like it, its nice and simple :) and ill update whenever I get some 
stuff to put up

Drogan564:Yes, your FAQ was great. It helped with a few things that I was just 
too lazy to do, like finding the Jecht spheres and the Al Bhed books.

LordCornbread: Yes, I really don't like to actually find all the hidden stuff 
by my self so it really helped.

promo: Your FAQ is well done, a great job, I'm still wondering how much time 
you spent on that.. probably some day I'll do one too, for the next FF maybe.. 
i haven't found nothing wrong reading it :)

Propagator: Yeah, your FAQ was good, I just think you should ask people to 
send any questions that are unclear in your walkthrough, and any worthy 
questions should be added. One thing you might want to look into is affection 
levels, someone posted a walkthrough of affection levels on neoseeker.com, if 
those are real, it would be nice to know what big actions lead to what events. 
(I know figuring this out would take a while, but you seem to like the game 
enough to do it)

brucelidat: You FAQ was fine helped me out a lot going through the game again 
after having not played it in years and trying to get trough it quick because 
I have work and school.
