    Chapter One: Ronso Rage                                                <ID001>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    This will cover how to get each one of Kimahri's Overdrives.
    
    First, to get any Ronso Rage Overdrive, you must use Lancet.  Lancet, when
    used by any Ronso, allows that Ronso to steal "enemy skills" or "blue magic"
    from an enemy.
    
    Once you've used Lancet on an enemy, you have a chance of learning one of their
    skills.  There are only twelve (bummer, I would have liked a lot more!) to
    learn.  If you suceed at learning one of these enemy skills, your Overdrive
    bar will instantly fill up, allowing you to use the new skill right away.
    
    Check out the below table for a listing on how to acquire each of Kimahri's
    Ronso Rage attacks.  I haven't seen a guide on where to find all the enemies
    that you need, so this will probably prove to be quite useful:

    There you have it.
    
    There are a bunch of Ronso Rages you can learn from the Al Bhed home, but if
    you miss them there, don't worry.  Every Rage can be learned, at any time.
    
    Watch out for Malboro and Great Malboro, they are extremely annoying to fight,
    as they often confuse your characters.
    
    In addition to those monsters having learnable Ronso Rages, two other Ronsos,
    Yenke and Biran, also can teach you moves when you battle them on Mt. Gagazet.
    
    The moves the other Ronsos teach you:
    
    Biran                    Yenke
    =====                    =====
    Doom                     Aqua Breath
    Mighty Guard             Fire Breath
    Self Destruct            Stone Breath
    Thrust Kick              White Wind
    
    You'll notice you can grab EIGHT Ronso Rages in one battle by using Lancet on
    both Biran and Yenke.  And since your Overdrive bar immediatly charges after
    you steal an enemy skill, it is not a bad tactic to Lancet both Ronsos and then
    unleash their skills right back at them.
    
    You may be wondering what each of these moves do.  Here is a listing:
    
    Skill               Result
    =====               ======
    Jump                Non-elemental damage to one enemy
    
    Fire Breath         Fire damage to all enemies
    
    Seed Cannon         Non-elemental damage to one enemy
    
    Self Destruct       Non-elemental damage to one enemy; sacrifices Kimahri in
                        exchange to the large amount of damage done; Kimahri
                        is removed from battle (much like Self Destruct works
                        on Bombs, Grenades, Puroboros, etc)
    
    Thrust Kick         Non-elemental damage to one enemy; will not eject an enemy
    
    Stone Breath        Petrifies all enemies
    
    Aqua Breath         Water damage to all enemies
    
    Doom                Casts Doom on one enemy
    
    White Wind          Heals enetire party one half of Kimahri's current HP
    
    Bad Breath          Random status effects on all enemies
    
    Mighty Guard        Casts Protect, Shell, and Null-All on entire party
    
    Nova                Non-elemental damage to all enemies; most powerful Rage
    
    That is a list of all Ronso Rage skills and their effects.
    
    Now, for some frequently asked questions:
    
    
    Q: I missed Nova from Omega Weapon.  Can I get it again?
    A: Yes, you can get it from Nemesis.  Read on to another section to learn
       how to unlock Nemesis, the hardest enemy in the entire game.
    
    Q: What is Kimahri's best Ronso Rage?
    A: The most powerful Rage is Nova.  Mighty Guard is very useful, though, if
       you're characters have low defense.
    
    Q: Do I get anything for unlocking all twelve Ronso Rages attacks?
    A: No.
    
    
    That covers Ronso Rages entirely.  Every single detail about them has been
    written down.
    
    If you have a question not answered by this section, you may e-mail me, but
    chances are it is in here.

    Chapter Two: Bushido and Jecht Spheres                                 <ID002>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Auron's overdrive mode is Bushido.  He has the ability to unleash a set of
    powerful, one hit attacks, as Tidus collects Jecht Spheres around the world of
    Spira.  Auron's four attacks are inputted with the D-Pad, not the Analog Stick:
    
    
    Dragon Fang: Left Down Up Right L1 R1 X O
    ==========================================
    This attack attempts to slightly delay all the enemies' next attack, while
    still inflicting damage.
    
    
    Shooting Star: Triangle O Square X Left Right X
    ===============================================
    This attack attempts to eject one enemy from battle, while doing a lot of
    damage.  It becomes available after the Spherimorph battle at Macalania, when
    you view your first Jecht Sphere. 
    
    
    Banishing Blade: Up L1 Down R1 Right Left Triangle
    ==================================================
    Auron's best overdrive attack.  Auron hits one enemy and adds four Break Status
    effects to that enemy: Power Break, Armor Break, Mental Break, Magic Break.
    These effects hit 100% of the time, unless a character is 100% resistant to a
    particular Break.  Extremely useful in the Monster Arena, against armored
    enemies.  Collect three Jecht Sphere to unlock Auron's Banishing Blade.
    
    
    Tornado: X Right R1 Left L1 Triangle
    ====================================
    Tornado sucks all enemies into a whirlpool of fire for massive damage.  Unlock
    this by collecting all ten spheres Jecht left around Spira.
    
    
    Jecht Sphere Locations
    ======================
    Where you can find every Sphere left behind by Auron, Jecht, and Braska:
    
    01 - Macalania Lake, after Spherimorph battle.  Collecting this sphere allows
         you to collect the rest of the spheres.
    
    02 - Besaid Village, near the Besaid Temple, on the steps.  A dialog about
         Jecht wanting to eat an entire shoopuf.
    
    03 - SS Liki, bound to Kilika, in the cabin.  A dialog about navigating through
         the seas at night.
    
    04 - Luca Stadium Basement A, near a locker room.  Jecht's message to Tidus
         about blitzball.
    
    05 - Mi'hen Highroad, down below on the Lowroad or Oldroad.  Use chocobo
         transportation.
    
    06 - Mushroom Rock Road, near a rising platform.
    
    07 - Moonflow, near the Shoopuff boarding dock.  A conversation about Jecht's
         shame..
    
    08 - Thunder Plains South, close to a lightning rod tower on the right side.
    
    09 - Macalania Forest South, right near the entrance.
    
    10 - Mt. Gagazet Mountain Road, on a trail that lead to a dead end.
    
    
    That's everything about Auron's Bushido overdrive that you could imagine.  Keep
    in mind, that when performing his attacks, if you fail to input the correct
    button sequence, your attack will not have the special effects, such as Break
    or an eject attempt, added to the attack.  The faster you press the buttons,
    the more damage Auron will deal.

    Chapter Three: Jecht Shot                                              <ID003>

    The Jecht Shot is Jecht's ultimate shot.  It is an amazing blitzball technique
    for Tidus to learn, as well.  When Jecht Shot is performed, Tidus will hit the
    ball off of two defenders (effectively stopping them from blocking his shot)
    and then add a few shot points onto the ball as it goes flying at the goalie.
    
    On your way to Luca, from Kilika, you'll have the chance to learn Jecht Shot.
    If you should fail, you can always board the boat towards Luca again.
    
    Find the blitzball on the ship's deck and interact with it.
    
    To learn the Jecht Shot, you need to press the D-Pad buttons in the direction
    the words appear on screen.  For example, if a comment appears on the top right
    corner of the screen, press up-right on your PS2 D-Pad.  It's not hard.
    
    Once you actually begin playing blitzball regularly in tournaments, you'll have
    a chance to learn Jecht Shot 2.  Jecht Shot 2 knocks away three defenders and
    then turns the ball invisible!  Once the ball is invisible, you can use the
    control stick to line up the ball (represented by a tiny purple dot) and aim
    the ball into the net, away from the goalkeeper.
    
    Before you can learn Jecht Shot 2, however, Tidus must have learned ALL of his
    Key Techniques.  DO NOT TRY LEARNING IT IF TIDUS DOES NOT HAVE ALL OF HIS KEY
    TECHNIQUES!

    Chapter Four:  [Break HP Limit]                                        <ID004>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    [Break HP Limit] allows a character to have up to 99999 HP when the
    auto-ability is on that user's current armor.
    
    To customize [Break HP Limit] onto an armor, you'll need 30 Wings To
    Discovery.  Read on to learn how to get Wings To Discovery:
    
    a) Overkill Shinryu: If you overkill Shinryu (an incredibly easy Monster Arena
    enemy), you'll get two Wings To Discovery.  This is the way I would strongly
    recommend.
    
    b) Open Three Chests During Remien Race: If you can open three chests, and beat
    the other chocobo to the end of the Remien Chocobo Race, you'll earn THIRTY
    Wings To Discovery. AWESOME! Too bad you can only do this once.
    
    c) Bribe Malboro: If you bribe Malboro for 540,000 gil you could get two
    Wings To Disovery. Be sure to save before you bribe, in case something
    goes wrong. You can also bribe Great Malboro, but it is certainly not
    worth the money. Malboro is the best to bribe.
    
    [Break HP Limit] armors are also dropped by these enemies:  Omega (one time
    chance) or the ultimate monster creation, Nemesis.  Nemesis is extremely tough,
    tougher than any boss in the game, but he will often drop [Break HP Limit]
    armors with three other slots free.
    
    Onto some common questions:
    
    
    Q: If I have more than 9999 HP worth of Sphere Grid Nodes activated, but I do
       not have [Break HP Limit] yet, will the game remember the nodes that put me
       over 9999 HP, so that when I get [Break HP Limit] I will have more HP?
    A: Yes, the game 'remembers' your HP.  Don't worry.
    
    Q: How much HP can you max out with?
    A: The most HP any one character can have is 99,999.
    
    
    That's everything you could want about [Break HP Limit].

    Chapter Five: Al Bhed Passwords                                        <ID005>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Most people have inputted the the three hidden Al Bhed passwords into the
    Airship Password Database. However, few people actually know how to get these
    passwords, other than reading a guide or FAQ. This will explain how to get the
    passwords yourself.
    
    If you're wondering what the three Al Bhed Passwords are, they're:
    
    VICTORIOUS
    MURASAME
    GODHAND
    
    They must be inputted with capital letters into the airship password system.
    
    If you're curious on how these passwords were cracked, check out the following
    areas.  It's all deeply explained.
    
    How VICTORIOUS Was Cracked
    ==========================
    First, you'll need to have most of the Al Bhed Primers.  If you don't have them
    all, you'll need to use an Al Bhed guide to translate things your missing.  The
    second step is to go to Besaid and read the clue there: 
    
    
    Kilika and Bikanel join as one.
    
    
    Then read the clue in the beginning for the Kilika forest:
    
    
    tepswrs 
    VCOIU
    
    
    It makes little sense, right? Well go to the Sanubia Desert next. Read that
    clue:
    
    
    hasod i 
    ITROS 
    
    
    Put it together. You'll wind up with something weird looking:
    
    
    tepswrsVCOIU 
    hasodiITROS 
    
    
    If you read it in a diaganol kind of way you'll end up with:
    
    
    thepasswordisVICTORIOUS
    
    
    Therefore: The password is VICTORIOUIS. Pretty neat, huh?  That one wasn't too
    hard to figure out.  Neither is the next one.
    
    How MURASAME Was Cracked
    ========================
    To get the Murasame password, head to the Baaj Temple. It's the place where you
    get Anima. Head back to the area where you first find Tidus floating in the
    water. Find the clue that reads:
    
    
    In the land where bolts of light 
    Illuminate the blackest night 
    With Macalania behind 
    The fourth pillar you sight 
    Look not on the left 
    But on the right 
    
    
    The land where bolts of light illuminate the blackest night is, obviously, the
    Thunderplains. But Macalania at your back and then check out the fourth pillar
    on your right.
    
    Bingo. You'll find that the password is MURASAME.  The next one might be
    tricky.
    
    How GODHAND Was Cracked
    =======================
    Stay focused, as this gets pretty complicated at parts.
    
    On the Highroad (closest to Luca), find this clue:
    
    There is a valley in a vast plain with a great thorn beside. 
    From the thorn look cross the vale to the other side.
    
    Head to the Calm Lands, the only plains with a thorn. Near the gorge you'll
    find this clue:
    
    With the Vale at your back go fortynine.
    Then seven to the right in the truest line.
    
    Now face south, which is opposite the vale. Do exactly as each instruction
    tells you:
    
    [A stone gives this clue]: Right sixteen and right four 
    
    [A stone gives this clue]: With me at your back go twenty, then twenty to the
    right. 
    
    [A circle gives this clue]: Continue on. Find me.
    
    After that clue, go to the next circle. It's near the thorn.
    
    Time for the password: GODHAND. A lot of work, but not too hard. Just
    concentrate!
    
    There you have it.  How to crack those mysterious Al Bhed Passwords you took
    for granted.

    Chapter Six: Dark Matter                                               <ID006>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Many people wonder where they can get Dark Matter.  Read on.
    
    There are only a handful of ways to get Dark Matter. Other than the ways I
    list, there are no other "secret" ways I'm hiding from you. So if you
    absolutely need Dark Matter, this is how you'll HAVE to get it.  You can bribe
    Land Worms once you are inside Sin's very core, but you can't save once you get
    there, so I omitted that from this guide.
    
    a) Blitzball: Occasionally, and I do mean occasionally, you could win
    Dark Matter as a blitzball prize. Not very common. Very bad way of getting a
    lot of Dark Matters.
    
    b) Monster Arena Drops: Any of the Arena Creations have a very slim chance of
    dropping one Dark Matter after a fight. Luck Stat plays no part in the rarity
    of finding Dark Matter by killing Area Creations, and it seems that all area
    creations drop them with the same rarity. If you overkill the monster, and the
    monster drops a Dark Matter, you'll get an extra one, too. The best way to
    amass Dark Matters quickly if you're short on money. I find Sleep Sprout
    extremely easy to kill, so he'd be a good choice if you're attempting to get
    rarely dropped Dark Matter.
    
    c) 99 Free Dark Matters: Capture five of every monster in the game and
    then talk to the Monster Arena owner. He'll reward you with 99 Dark Matters.
    Truly awesome, but this can only be done ONCE.  You'll also unlock
    Ultima Buster.
    
    So what does Dark Matter do?  If you can acquire 60 Dark Matters, you can add
    them to a weapon for [Break Damage Limit] auto-ability.  Very good if you're
    never going to acquire Celestial Weapons.
    
    Dark Matter is very often used in Rikku's mixes.  Check out the Trio of 9999
    section for more.
    
    Dark Matter can also be used in battle, with USE.  It does nice damage.
    
    If you've got all the Celetial Weapons, Dark Matter is rather useless. It
    fetches some nice gil, if you should sell it. You cannot buy Dark Matter,
    period, so quit asking.

    Chapter Eight: Celestial Mirror                                        <ID008>

    The Celestial Mirror is the most important item when it comes to powering up
    your Celestial Weapons.  Just how do you obtain it?  The following paragraphs
    should make it clear.
    
    Head to the center of the Calm Lands.  Talk to the chocobo trainer and ride a
    chocobo off to the far bottom right corner of the map.  You should see a small,
    yellow chocobo feather sitting on the ground.  Interact with the feather and
    you'll jump down to a hidden area below.
    
    You'll have to soon dismount the chocobo, don't worry, you don't need the bird
    anymore.  Cross the Remien Temple bridge and go right.  You'll get to play a
    chocobo racing game.
    
    Win the race by getting to the middle of the track before the other chocobo
    beats you to it.  Don't worry about grabbing any of the chests, they're
    nonessential for the task at hand.
    
    Once you win the race, you'll be rewarded a Cloudy Mirror.
    
    Your next destination is Macalania Forest.  Find a lonely mother standing about
    with her son, and continue to talk to her until she mentions her lost husband.
    
    Find the husband.  He's located off to the right and then north.  You'll have
    to leave Macalania Forest, kind of.  Once you've convinced the father to return
    to his wife and son, return to his wife and son yourself.
    
    But wait.  Now the son's gone!  Talk to the parents until they mention their
    missing son.  Find their son, he's atop a winding, sparkling path.  He'll help
    you obtain the the Celestial Mirror, and then he'll return to his parents.
    Thanks DJ4Nike for the slight correction.
    
    
    Remember this spot!  Write it down, if you have to.  You'll need to return here
    every time you want to power up a Celestial Weapon.
    
    When you first get your Celestial Weapons, they all will have:
    
    [No AP]
    
    You'll need to revisit this spot and power up the weapons.
    
    Power them up with a Crest for:
    
    [No AP] + [Double Overdrive]
    
    Once powered up with a Crest, a certain power might be unleashed.  For example,
    when Yuna is powered with her Crest, Valefor will be able to deal over 9999
    damage in one hit.
    
    Power them with a Sigil for:
    
    [Break Damage Limit] + [Triple Overdrive]
    
    Note, you'll get the two above abilities, plus TWO MORE other abilities, such
    as [One MP Cost] or [First Strike], depending on the character.

    Chapter Nine: [No Encounters]                                          <ID009>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    [No Encounters] is an armor auto-ability that allows the party to walk freely
    around the world without running into any random battles.  You'll still fight
    bosses, of course.
    
    To customize [No Encounters] onto an armor, you'll need 30 Purifying Salts.
    
    The only way to get Purifying Salts is to steal them from enemies.  Abadon, of
    the monster arena, will give up some if you steal from him.  Warrior Monks
    and Fallen Monks also give up Purifying Salts on occasion if try to steal from
    them, althought it is rare.  With [Master Thief] auto-ability on an armor, you
    will frequently steal Purifying Salts from Hornet, a monster in the arena.
    
    On a side note, Purifying Salts also can be used to teach an Aeon dispel.
    
    You'll also get 99 Purifying Salts should you unlock Fafnir in the monster
    arena.  To unlock Fafnir, you'll need to capture four of each Vouivre,
    Lamashtu, Kusariqqu, Mushussu, and Nidhogg.
    
    [No Encounters] armors are also dropped by Ghosts, Wraiths, or Demonoliths on
    occasion.  It is extremely rare.
    
    A glitch in the game: sometimes Geosgaeno (the Baaj Temple guardian) will drop
    [No Encounters] weapons!  I've gotten a ball for Wakka with No Encounters.
    Sweet.
    
    That's everything you could want about [No Encounters].  Just remember that you
    realy only need one person with [No Encounters], so when you unlock Fafnir
    just use thirty of your Purifying Salts on one weapon, not on all your party
    members.  You'll want to save some Purifying Salts or teach all of your aeons
    Dispel.

    Chapter Ten: Tidus's Celestial Weapon - Caladbolg                      <ID010>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The Calabolg is a Celtic sword of mythology rumored to be so strong, it could
    cut the hills of Ireland in two.  If you're interested in the subject, there
    are A LOT of resources on the web that deal with Celtic mythology.  Just use
    google.com
    
    The first step towards gaining the Calabolg, Tidus's ultimate weapon, is to get
    the Celestial Mirror.  Read an earlier portion of the guide if you need the
    mirror.  Make sure you have the airship.
    
    Next, head to the Calm Lands and beat the Chocobo Trainer in each of her four
    races.  When you've finished that, an extremely easy task, head to the 
    northwest part of the Calm Lands.  Walk down a cliff (a man was once guarding
    this cliff, now he's gone!) and then use the Celestial Mirror to get Tidus's
    weapon.  It's very weak right now, don't worry: we'll fix that.
    
    To get Tidus's Sun Crest, head to the area where you killed Lady Yunalesca.
    Walk up and down the stairs until you see a chest on the left side of the
    screen.  Open it and grab the Sun Crest.
    
    The Sun Sigil, however, is quite hard and frustrating.
    
    Return to the Calm Lands and talk to the Chocobo Trainer again.  Now it's time
    to beat her, and beat her badly.
    
    You'll need to score a time of BETTER THAN 0:0:0.  To do this, you'll need
    at least thirteen or fourteen balloons.  Use the other ride as a shield, if you
    must, to take the hits for you.  It's incredibly hard.
    
    Remember, there are a lot of 'invisible' boundaries throughout the track.  If
    you hit one of those boundaries, you'll bounce.  And bouncing is bad.
    
    Of course, you should never hit a bird, unless it means two or three baloons.
    You'll add about 1.5 to 2.0 seconds of time every time you hit them, plus, at
    the end of the race, the trainer will add three seconds to your time for every
    bird you hit!  You're almost losing five seconds per bird.  That's terrible.
    
    Don't flip out if you can't do this.  It's mostly skill, but luck is involved
    somewhat.  Just calm down and realize that you're not alone.  Most FFX players
    fail to complete this challenge, for some reason or another.
    
    Good luck.  There's really nothing else I can do to help you.
    
    Once you've gotten the three pieces, return to the Celestial Mirror spot and
    charge them up!
    
    Your new weapon will have:
    
    [Break Damage Limit] + [Triple Overdrive] + [Evade & Counter] + [Magic Counter]
    
    Congratulations.  There is also a special bonus associated with Tidus's
    weapon: when Tidus's HP is full, the weapon will deal more damage.
    
    Remember, you'll need a score BETTER THAN 0:0:0 to win the chocobo game.  If
    you JUST make 0:0:0, you won't get his Sigil.  So you have to race extremely
    well.

    Yuna's Celestial Weapon is Nirvana. The name is obviously derived from the
    Buddhist faith. Nirvana is considered to be the ultimate state of happiness,
    only achieved after many reincarnations.
    
    The first step to gaining Nirvana is to to grab the Moon Crest.  It's actually
    on Besaid Island, and it can be grabbed the first time you visit the
    island--when Wakka first meets Tidus.  In the ocean Tidus swims in, check out
    the right side of the screen.  Look around for a treasure chest on a little
    cove.  Open it up, and you've got Yuna's Moon Crest.
    
    Next, you'll want to go to the Remien Temple (located near the Calm Lands) and 
    battle Belgemine's aeons.  You must have all of the aeons, including the extra
    aeons Yojimo, Anima, and Magus Sisters, to complete this task.
    
    Here's a guide to defeating each aeon and ultimately grabbing Yuna's Moon
    Sigil.
    
    Valefor (20,000 HP)
    ===================
    Prizes: First Time     - Summoner's Soul
            Second Time    - Lightning Gem x4
            All Others     - Power Sphere x4
    
    It's an easy battle.  Valefor is incredibly weak, and he has a low HP.  Not a
    problem here.  If you are having problems with Valefor, Yuna'a level is far too
    low to defeat the other aeons.
    
    Ifrit (28,000 HP)
    =================
    Prizes: First Time     - Aeon's Soul
            Second Time    - X-Potion x30
            All Others     - Mana Sphere x5
    
    Don't use fire attacks.  A nice dose of Ice attacks from Anima should eliminate
    him in no time at all.
    
    Ixion (30,000 HP)
    =================
    Prizes: First Time     - Chocobo Feather x10
            All Others     - Power Sphere x8
    
    Make sure you don't hit Ixion with Thunder attacks, as he absorbs them.  Water
    magic is your easiest option.
    
    Shiva (20,000 HP)
    =================
    Prizes: First Time     - Mega Potion x60
            All Others     - Star Curtain x6
    
    Shiva will dodge most physical attacks.  Use a steady dose of Firaga, and
    she'll be gone.  If you miss with too many physical attacks, she'll have an
    overdrive, Diamond Dust, ready to use on your aeon.
    
    Bahamut (35,000 HP)
    ===================
    Prizes: First Time     - Flower Sceptor
            All Others     - Mana Sphere x8
    
    You'll get the Flower Sceptor the very first time you defeat Bahamut, which
    means you won't be getting it again.  You needed the Flower Sceptor to obtain
    the Magus Sisters, which I've already instructed you to do.  To defeat Bahamut,
    use another big gun aeon like Anima or even Shiva.
    
    Yojimbo (32,000 HP)
    ===================
    Prizes: First Time     - Shadow Gem x8
            All Others     - Power Sphere x10
    
    Defeat Yojimbo with ease, as long as you're using attacks like Impulse, Pain,
    or Ultima.  He'll dodge a lot of physical attacks.
    
    Anima (54,000 HP)
    =================
    Prizes: First Time     - Stamina Spring x60
            All Others     - Mana Sphere x10
    
    Anima has the most HP of any single aeon, so this could be your first
    challenge.  Just make sure you use the Magus Sisters, Yojimbo, Shiva,
    or Bahamut and you'll be on your way to victory.  Valefor doesn't have
    enough HP for the fight, and Ifrit is not strong enough.
    
    Magus Sisters: Cindy (20,000 HP) / Sandy (35,000 HP) / Mindy (48,000 HP)
    ========================================================================
    Prizes: First Time     - Shining Gem x40
            All Others     - Power Sphere x12
            Sending        - Moon Sigil
    
    One overdrive from Anima or Bahamut will eliminate the Magus Sisters just as
    quickly as they came out.  If you don't want to use an overdrive, first take
    Cindy, because she is the healer.  Once you win this battle, send Belgemine and
    grab the Moon Sigil.  Almost time for Yuna's weapon.
    
    Back to the Calm Lands.  Capture at least one of every monster there.  Be sure
    the man who runs the arena acknowledge that you've capture at least one of
    each Calm Lands fiend.
    
    Open the treasure box, get the weapon, and head to Macalania to power it up!
    
    Once powered up, Nirvana will have:
    
    [Break Damage Limit] + [Triple Overdrive] + [Double AP] + [One MP Cost]
    
    As an added bonus, Valefor can now deal over 9,999 damage!  Yuna's Nirvana
    will inflict more damage when Yuna's MP is full, so keep a supply of ethers
    on hand, should your MP run extremely low.
    
    Special Effects: Does more damage when Yuna's MP is full, and allows Valefor 
    to exceed 9,999 damage.

    Chapter Twelve: Wakka's Celestial Weapon - World Champion              <ID012>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Wakka's ultimate weapon is not that hard to attain.  You must have the
    Celestial Mirror, however.  Don't try to get Wakka's weapon from the bar until
    you have the Celestial Mirror.
    
    First, take your airship to Luca.  Check out the Besaid Aurochs locker room,
    and attempt to open all the lockers.  Inside one of the lockers is the Jupiter
    Crest.
    
    Next, head to the bar where Kimahri nearly gets into a large fight with Biran
    Ronso and Yenke Ronso.  Talk to the man behind the counter.  He'll give up
    Wakka's ultimate weapon.
    
    The last step is actually the most difficult.
    
    You must win each of Wakka's overdrives in the blitzball leagues and
    tournaments before you can get his Sigil.  Refer to another part of this guide
    for information about Wakka's overdrives and how to get them.
    
    After you've won Auroch Reels, Wakka's last overdrive, the Jupiter Sigil will
    be a prize in the League games.  It might not appear right away, so keep
    winning league championships.  If you're impatient, read on for a trick.
    
    There is a certain trick to help you gain Wakka's Jupiter Sigil faster.  After
    you've grabbed all his overdrives, keep using RESET TEAM DATA until Wakka's
    Sigil appears as a league prize.  Personally, I don't recommend this, because
    you'll lose all your blitzball stats, levels, recruitments, techs, etc.
    
    Take the weapon, crest, and sigil to the woods and power it up.  Wakka's
    new World Champion will boast:
    
    [Break Damage Limit] + [Triple Overdrive] + [Double AP] + [Evade & Counter]
    
    Also, after World Champion is powered up, Ifrit will be able to inflict over
    9,999 damage.  Wakka's World Champion deals extra damage when Wakka's HP is
    full, so heal him often.

    Chapter Thirteen: Lulu's Celestial Weapon - Onion Knight               <ID013>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The Onion Knight returns from Final Fantasy III!
    
    Much like the moogles, moombas, cactuars, etc, all of Lulu's dolls seem to be
    from old Final Fantasy games.  Getting the Onion Knight isn't hard, it just
    requires patience.
    
    First thing's first: go to the Baaj Temple (Anima's Temple).  Dive down below
    and look around.  It's in a VERY well hidden treasure box, only accessible
    after you've defeated Geosgaeno, the temple's water boss.  The easiest way to
    get the treasure box is to look around in the southern part of the circle
    and just mash the X button like mad.  Soon you'll have her weapon.
    
    Like most of the Celestial Weapons, you'll need the Celestial Mirror to open
    the treasure box.  So don't bother, unless you have it.
    
    Next, get the Venus Crest.  Just head to the Farplane, you can't miss it.  From
    one extreme to the other, right?
    
    Now, it's back to the tedious work.  Off to the Thunder Plains.  It's time to
    do the fabled "Dodge 200 Lightning Bolts" quest.
    
    Here are the ten commandments for completing this challenge:
    
    1 - Thou shall not save in between; if you do, your counter resets.
    
    2 - Thou shall not leave the screen in between; if yo do, your counter resets.
    
    3 - Thou shall not use a turbo controller.  The game picks up on cheating.
    
    4 - Thou shall not mash X.  The game picks up on your cheating attempt.
    
    5 - Thou shall honor this map:
    
        < www.freewebs.com/acax1985/ps2_final_fantasy_x_thunder_plains_map.jpg >
    
    6 - Thou shall not throw any controllers or small animals in a fit of rage.
    
    7 - Thou shall concentrate and remain calm at all times.
    
    8 - Thou shall use [No Encounters] on an armor or a weapon.
    
    9 - Thou shall not complain it is not fair or it is impossible.
    
    10 - Thou shall be wished good luck.
    
    When using the map, be sure to try dodging the lightning bolts at places where
    you see THREE lightning bolts.  That's where the lightning strikes most
    frequently.
    
    If you follow those rules, you will soon have a fully charged up Onion Knight
    with the following abilities:
    
    [Break Damage Limit] + [Triple Overdrive] + [Magic Booster] + [One MP Cost]
    
    When Lulu's MP is full you'll deal extra damage with the Onion Knight.  Also,
    once powered up, the Onion Knight allows Shiva to break the damage limit.
    
    
    ===================
    Alternative Methods
    ===================
    If you're still having trouble, you can try some of these methods, contributed
    by fellow Final Fantasy X players.
    
    
    Shadow Conspiracy's Method
    --------------------------
    First, go to the area just right north the rin travel agencey, that place has
    the most lightning bolts.  start the stopwatch and go for 5 minutes.
    
    stop it between 5-6 minutes.  pause and go watch tv for 5-10 minutes, or when
    the show ur watching begins a part that you dont like.
    
    switch back to the game and go for a minute.  keep doing this and around 14-17
    minutes you should have the sigil; i got 254 doing it this way.
    
    
    Mitchell Jackson's Method
    --------------------------
    At a high volume (as my games usually are) the noise of the lightening
    and weather can be disconcerting and break your concentration.  At
    moderate volume, the sound is distracting and misleading.  The game tends
    to throw many more 'sounds' of lightening than actual lightening strikes.
    This can fool you into accidentally setting off the "mash" detection... by
    the noise luring you into attempting a dodge just a moment before a real
    strike, and then when you press X on the real strike the mash protection
    kicks in, and you get hit anyway.
     
    Anyway, I was having a horrible time dodging 200 strikes, because of the
    sound.  I even managed to get 199 at one point, before being hit.
     
    But, after turning the volume on the stereo down ALL THE WAY and just
    using the white flash on the screen as a dodge indicator, dodging hundreds
    of strikes in a row was easy as pie.

    Chapter Fourteen: Kimahri's Celestial Weapon - Spirit Lance            <ID014>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Kimahri's Celestial Weapon, the Spirit Lance, is not too hard to obtain.  If
    you use the map I'm providing for the butterfly game, then you should be fine.
    
    Before the butterfly game, though, head to the Thunder Plains.  You may have
    noticed that their are several Qactuar stones in corners of the Thunder Plains.
    Pray at three stones, and then head back down to the southern part of the
    plains.  There will be a Qactuar Ghost floating around.
    
    It's a bit tricky to follow him, because it seems he is following you, but you
    have to try.  He'll lead you to an old, crumbled tower on the right side of the
    screen.  It's about in the middle of the screen, not too far north or south,
    but in the middle.
    
    You'll notice how destroyed the tower is.  Pray at this spot, with Celestial
    Mirror in hand, and you'll watch a short cutscene as Kimahri obtains his
    weapon.
    
    Kimahri's Saturn Crest is located on Mt. Gagazet.  Chances are you picked it up
    already, it's near a bunch of pillars near the Seymour fight.  It's not hard to
    find.  Open the box and get the Crest.
    
    The Saturn Sigil isn't hard to find, either, but it is quite hard to obtain.
    
    You'll need the map at:
    
    < http://www.freewebs.com/acax1985/ps2_final_fantasy_x_butterfly_map.jpg >
    
    Print it, if you need.
    
    Take the airship to Macalania and then begin the butterfly game.  You must
    complete both.  By using the butterfly map (see the link above), it should be
    much easier.  You'll need to grab all the blue ones, while avoiding the red
    ones.  It's frustrating, to say the least.  [No Encounters] on an armor is a
    must.  Even if you run into a red butterfly while [No Encounters] is equipped,
    you'll fight a battle.  Use this time to capture any monsters you need.
    
    If you try to do this before you have the airship, you will not get the items
    you are looking for.
    
    Once you power up Kimahri's Spirit Lance, Ixion will be able to break the
    damage limit of 9,999 damage.  The Spirit Lance, fully charged:
    
    [Break Damage Limit] + [Triple Overdrive] + [Double AP] + [Evade & Counter]
    
    So why is it called the Spirit Lance, when it has absolutely nothing to do
    with any sort of magic?
    
    According to what translations I can gather, the Japanese Final Fanstasy X game
    is deeply rooted in spiritual, holy, or religious matters, even more so than
    the American game.  The Crests and Sigils are actually called Scrolls and
    Holy Scrolls, respectively, in the Japanese release.
    
    In Japanese, Kimahri's Sigil was the Thursday Holy Scroll.  All of the
    characters had days, not planets (or satelites, YUNA!), assigned to them.
    
    Holy Thursday is a very special day in the Christian faith (which I'm not
    going to get into), and Kimahri's ultimate weapon was called Longinus in
    the Japanese edition.  Longinus is the suposed name of the Roman soldier who
    pierced Jesus Christ's side with a spear as he hung on the cross.
    
    Obviously, America is too fragile to include these "deep, dark elements of
    religion" in a game, so it was tuned down to Spirit Lance.
    
    Kawa Same adds this:
    
    "Also, if you pay attention to this kind of stuff, the Lance of Longinus is
    also the name of a Holy Lance in an anime called Neon Genesis Evangelion. This
    anime was very popular when FFX was in it's production stages. Still is,
    actually."

    Chapter Fifteen: Auron's Celestial Weapon - Masamune                   <ID015>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Throughout the game, Auron is your fighter and strongest character.  I think
    the Mars Crest and Mars Sigil fit him well, as Mars was the Roman God of War.
    
    The steps to gaining Auron's Masamune are actually a bit longer than most other
    characters, because of the sheer ease of the process.
    
    First, take your Celestial Mirror with you to the Calm Lands.  Head down
    towards the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth and look around.  You'll see a rusty
    sword around there.  Take it with you to the Mushroom Rock Road.
    
    Once at Mushroom Rock Road, take your second left.  It should lead you to a
    lift.  Follow the obvious instructions of inserting the Rusty Sword, and you'll
    grab a powered down version of the Masamune.
    
    The Mars Crest is even easier to get.  Just ride a chocobo to the end of the
    Mi'ihen Highroad.  You'll notice another path, to the south.  It leads to the
    ruined Mi'ihen road.  Locate the chest and get ready to capture some monsters.
    
    To get the Mars Sigil, you'll need to unlock TEN Species Conquest or Area
    Conquest Monster Arena monsters.
    
    You have -no idea- how long this next chart took me to create, so please USE it
    and don't ask me questions.
    
    You must unlock any TEN of these monsters:

    There you have it.  You must unlock any ten of those monsters, and I've even
    included how to do it.  Get the Mars Sigil from the man at the arena and then
    go power up your Masamune to full strength:
    
    [Break Damage Limit] + [Triple Overdrive] + [First Strike] + [Counterattack]
    
    Auron's Masamune, when powered up, allows Yojimbo to deal more than 9,999
    damage.  Also, as a neat little bonus, when Auron's is critical, he'll inflict
    more damage with the Masamune.  The extra damage is just a bonus, though, as it
    is on all Celestial Weapons.  You can still do 99,999 damage while being full
    on health.
    
    As you read this, the term 'masamune' may sound familiar to you, from other
    games such as Chrono Trigger.  Jim Kurrasch has written this about the history
    of the 'masamune', which you can find elsewhere in this guide.

    Chapter Sixteen: Rikku's Celestial Weapon - Godhand                    <ID016>

    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The first to gaining Rikku's ultimate weapon is to input the password:
    
    GODHAND
    
    You input the password onto the airship's password system.  It must be in all
    capital letters.
    
    Once you've inputted GODHAND, a new place on the airship map will open up.  Go
    to this new location and then open a treasure box found there.  It will contain
    Rikku's Godhand, her ultimate weapon.  In Final Fantasy VII, Tifa also had a
    weapon called the Godhand.
    
    If you're wondering how you're suposed to know to put in the GODHAND password,
    read the Al Bhed Passwords section of this guide.
    
    Rikku's Mercury Crest can be found in Sanubia Desert, on the far north screen
    in a northwestern alcove.
    
    The next step is to acquire the Mercury Sigil.  You'll need the airship for
    this, and I strongly recommend [No Encounters].  Learn more about [No
    Encounters] in another part of this guide, named, you gussed it, [No
    Encounters].  This is a rather complicated process, but it is not hard.
    
    RAGNAROK757 has written comprehensively on the topic.  It is his work you see
    here next, with permission.  Sections have been edited by myself, however, to
    make them easier to read in this guide and to cut down on the massive file size
    for you 28k AOL users.  Thanks RAGNAROK757, you're the man.
    
    DEFINITIONS:
    
    Screen Number     Description                   In Game Menu Title
    ===========       ===========                   ==================
    SCREEN ONE        Contains a pond               Sanubia Desert--Oasis
    
    SCREEN TWO        A winding path with a save    Sanubia Desert--East
    
    SCREEN THREE      Open desert, ruins on left    Sanubia Desert--Central
    
    SCREEN FOUR       Last screen with sandstorm    Sanubia Desert--West
    
    
    NOTE: In the guide, north refers to UP, south to DOWN, etc.  So if it says
          "move south", it means go down.
    
    First, go to SCREEN FOUR.  On the right side there is a stone you need to
    interact with.  After you interact with it, you'll need to catch ten cactuars.
    It is also a good time to capture ten cactuars needed for the Monster Arena.
    Chocobo Feathers can be stolen from cactuars commonly.  Chocobo Wings are rare
    steals.
    
    When you find a cactuar and win or lose, you'll be given a special sphere.  If
    you win, you'll get [Cactuar's Name] Sphere.  If you lose, you'll get Sphere
    del Perdedor, or Loser's Sphere.  Take the sphere, win or lose, back to the
    stone and you'll be given a new cactuar to find.
    
    
    =====
    TOMAY
    =====
    
    Glyph Clue: Tomay's gone. Gone to fetch the water.
    
    Location: At the oasis in the first screen. He is toward the right side of that
    little shore, you really can't miss him.
    
    Traits: Duties: Fetching water. Takes his time and, as a result, is often left
               behind.
            A little dim.
    
    Time: 10.0 seconds
    
    Course: You start off on a hill in the back left of the screen. Tomay is in the
    front right, under a tree.
    
    Difficulty/Tips: Easy. You just run straight toward him, watching his movements
    and stopping when he turns around. Or, instead of watching his movements, you
    can wait for the Al Bhed word "Needletime!" to appear onscreen. Stop when you
    see it, as this word means he is looking at you. However, I recommend watching 
    his movements as the best strategy. Time is not an obstacle.
    
    
    =======
    ROVIVEA
    =======
    
    Glyph Clue: Rovivea's gone walkabout.
    
    Location: You will find Rovivea in Screen Two. When you enter from Screen Three
    there is a large open depression to the left side of the screen, it's not hard
    to see Rovivea.
    
    Traits: Has no patience for certain dim-witted friends.
            Not a progressive thinker.
    
    Time: 13.6 seconds
    
    Course: Rovivea is at the very front of the screen, you are at the far back.
    Setup is similar to Tomay.
    
    Difficulty/Tips: Easy. Same strategy as for Tomay.
    
    
    =====
    CHAVA
    =====
    
    Glyph Clue: Little Chava likes big numbers.
    
    Location: There is a narrow point in Screen Four. On either side of this narrow
    area, there is a signpost facing each other horizontally. Go to the left sign
    and press X to read it; it should say something about an Al Bhed 20% off sale.
    (What a deal!) After you read the sign you will see little cutscene in which
    you find Chava.
    
    Traits: Recently learned to count to 50.
            A little needy.
            Attention deficit.
    
    Time: 13.0 seconds
    
    Course: You are at the back near one sign, Chava is in the front near another.
    A straightaway.
    
    Difficulty/Tips: Easy. Same strategy as for Tomay.
    
    
    ==========
    ALEK/ALOJA
    ==========
    
    Glyph Clue: Alek and Aloja play tag in the ruins of men.
    
    Location: They are running around in Screen Three, among the ruins on the far
    left side of the screen. You will easily spot them in the lowest part of the
    valley, running back and forth.
    
    Traits: Two brothers, rarely separated.
            They move as one, their closeness a paragon of brotherhood.
    
    Time: 13.0 seconds
    
    Course: The two brothers are at the front of the screen, you are in the far
    back. A straightaway course.
    
    Difficulty/Tips: Medium. Again, just run straight at them and watch their
    movements; this is a little more difficult than previous ones, you have to use
    your time to its fullest to reach them within the time period.
    
    
    ========
    VACHELLA
    ========
    
    Glyph Clue: Vachella seeks the shining blue.
    
    Location: The "shining blue" refers to a Save Sphere. Just go to the save point
    in Screen Two (it's approximately in the center of the area, under a tent) and
    examine the sphere. You will have the chance to save, etc. Once you cancel out
    of the Save Sphere menu, Vachella will appear.
    
    Traits: Loves new things.
            Hard on others, easy on self.
            Stingy.
    
    Time: 14.0 seconds
    
    Course: You are standing by the Save point, Vachella in the front of the
    screen. Another pretty straight course.
    
    Difficulty/Tips: Medium. Vachella likes to turn around very quickly. After he
    turns for the first time, he will turn around three more times right in
    succession. If you want to win, you must take full advantage of your opening
    period to run, then take at least a small step between each of his next four
    turns. He makes 8 spins total during the time; you'll need quick reflexes.
    
    
    ======
    ROBEYA
    ======
    
    Glyph Clue: O, Robeya's stuck inside.
    
    Location: Robeya is in a treasure chest, in the far southwest corner of the 
    main desert area in Screen Three. Just follow the south wall westward, or
    follow the fence southward, it's up to you. Try to open the chest and Robeya
    will hop out.
    
    Traits: A real needle brain.
            Likes cramped spaces.
            Check out his great collection!
    
    Time: 14.0 seconds
    
    Course: A straightway course, but there are four treasure chests, two on each
    side. The back one on the left is open. The back right one contains two Shadow
    Gems. The front left contains two Shining Gems, and the front right a Blessed
    Gem. You can open the chests to get the prizes; if you lose a trial, you can
    still keep your prize, but you can only open each chest once.
    
    Difficulty/Tips: Easy. The challenge is to get all three items, and still beat
    Robeya. However, since this is quite difficult, I suggest you just choose two
    of the three prizes, get them, and then beat Robeya with trial #3. I usually
    grab the Shadow Gems and the Blessed Gem.
    
    
    =====
    ISRRA
    =====
    
    BUG ALERT!! Apparently, if you do not leave Screen Four after giving the glyph
    Robeya's sphere, Isrra might not appear. However, don't worry, just leave the
    screen and come back, and all will be well. (Thanks to CB! for the solution to
    this bug, though I'm sure many others have discovered it as well.)
    
    Glyph Clue: A fiery description--The lord of the hole is gone, Isrra thinks.
    
    Location: In Screen Four, there are three antlion pits (little whirlpools of
    sand). You will find Isrra running around in the middle one of them.
    
    Traits: The philosopher about town. Today, he digs holes. Again.
            A cautious sort.
    
    Time: 15.0 seconds
    
    Course: The course is a basic Isrra front/Tidus back setup, however your vision
    is slightly hazy as it from the heat.
    
    Difficulty/Tips: Hard. Isrra looks at you for seconds at a time, so you must
    be very precise with starting and stopping--don't waste a single tenth of a
    second that he is looking away.
    
    EASY WAY TO BEAT ISRRA:
    There is a pit next to Tidus on the screen. Run into it when you first have a
    chance to move, and once you are in just keep running toward Isrra, even when 
    he is looking at you. Apparently there is a tunnel connecting the two pits,
    because after a few seconds you will be standing at the bottom left of the
    screen, right next to Isrra! Then just run over and touch him and you will
    have caught him. 
    
    
    ====
    ELIO
    ====
    
    Glyph Clue: Much-curious Elio has left on a journey.
    
    Location: Go to the pond in Screen One again. To find Elio, you must simply
    enter the pond area from the north (not the screen, just the area around the
    pond.) Basically, if you morph in at the Save point, you need to go up and then
    come back down again. After this, you will see a cutscene in which Elio beams
    up to the roof of the airship. Head to the airship roof to find him.
    
    (I love the cinematography, when you see Tidus' back, and then it rises up to
    show Elio. Sorry, back to the guide.)
    
    Traits: To what lies beyond the sands, he travels far to distant lands.
            Hyper-reactive and a bad poet.
    
    Time: 11.0 seconds
    
    Course: You are at the door of the roof, and Elio, in the forefront of the
    screen, is at the prow. Be warned, the ship will tilt when you are trying to
    get to him, so be prepared and keep your reflexes sharp.
    
    Difficulty/Tips: Hard. You just need to watch both Elio and the ship and
    pray you will succeed. Even I, having had a lot of practice, still sometimes
    fail to get him; 11 seconds is very short to achieve this in. Also, you
    don't actually fight Elio. If you reach him, he just falls off the edge, and
    apparently dies. Oh well.
    
    PROBLEM WITH ELIO: If you have gone to the "Sin" destination on the airship, 
    but have not fought the battle with Sin there, you will automatically be forced
    into that battle when you go outside to meet Elio. So, you have to fight Sin 
    and get that over with before you can continue with the sidequest. I don't know
    of any other solution.
    
    ======
    FLAILE
    ======
    
    Glyph Clue: Flaile is always behind.
    
    Location: After you take Elio's sphere to the glyph, Flaile will automatically
    jump out and initiate the minigame.
    
    Traits: The guy you never invite but he always shows up anyway.
            Cheeky.
    
    Time: 13.0 seconds
    
    Course: A basic straightaway; you are standing be the glyph rock, he is in
    the front ground of the screen.
    
    Difficulty/Tips: Hard. Ignore the sounds and the words that appear onscreen, as
    they are meaningless for this one. However, it is not that hard to just look 
    at his movements and time your running. Flaile gives you a special red sphere
    when you are done with him.
    
    Once you beat Flaile, take the red sphere to the glyph and there will be a
    lengthy sequence in which the glyph repeats the clue for each of the 10
    Cactaurs' locations. Then, the sandstorm in the valley will disappear.
    
    Now that the sandstorm is gone, you can go get your prizes. There are two
    treasure chests in the area revealed by the sandstorm; both are toward the
    southern end of the valley. In the left one is the Mercury Sigil. The prize in
    the second chest varies, depending on how many Cactaurs you successfully
    defeated:
    
    1 Named Sphere=    Potion
    2 Named Spheres=   Potion
    3 Named Spheres=   Elixir
    4 Named Spheres=   Elixir
    5 Named Spheres=   Elixir
    6 Named Spheres=   Elixir
    7 Named Spheres=   Megalixir
    8 Named Spheres=   Megalixir
    9 Named Spheres=   Friend Sphere
    10 Named Spheres=  Friend Sphere
    
    None of these prizes could be classified as great, so don't feel a lot of
    pressure to beat every Cactaur, but it isn't difficult, and an extra Friend
    Sphere never hurt anybody.
    
    Thanks, RAGNAROK757.
    
    Power up your Godhand to the following abilities:
    
    [Break Damage Limit] + [Triple Overdrive] + [Double AP] + [Gillionaire]
    
    Rikku's Godhand is the only Celestial Weapon with Gillionaire.  When Rikku's
    HP is full, Godhand will inflict extra, bonus damage.

    Valefor is the only aeon to have a second, hidden overdrive.
    
    To get the second overdrive, Energy Blast, immediately reenter the village
    the first time the party begins to leave. If you miss this oppurtunity,
    you will need to wait until you gain the airship.
    
    Once you've returned to Besaid, head to the village and talk to the woman and
    the dog on the left of the temple.  She'll tell you about her dog finding
    something soggy.. well, it's your new overdrive!  Congrats.
    
    Note that if you're playing the Japanese or American version of the game,
    you will have no trouble.  However, if you're playing the International or
    European version of the game, you'll have to fight Dark Valefor.  For a guide
    on Dark Valefor, check out a PAL FAQ.

    You can not return to Bevelle Temple.  Never ever.  No chance.
    
    You can not miss the Destruction Sphere at Bevelle Temple.  In order to
    complete the Bevelle Temple puzzle, you MUST use the Destruction Sphere.  You
    also MUST grab the treasure chest in order to complete the puzzle.  It is
    absolutely MANDATORY that you GET THE CHEST and USE THE SPHERE.
    
    In case I am not being clear, THERE IS NO WAY TO RETURN TO BEVELLE!  NONE!  No
    matter what anyone tells you.  Anyone that says you can return is lying.
    
    Do not ask how to return.  If you e-mail me asking, I will ban your e-mail
    address.  If you instant message me, I will block your screen name.  Forever.

    [Break MP Limit] allows a character to have up to 9999 MP when the
    auto-ability is on that user's current armor.
    
    To customize [Break MP Limit] onto an armor, you'll need 30 Three Stars.  Read
    on to learn how to get Three Stars:
    
    a) Steal From Shinryu and Jormungand: With [Master Thief] equipped, you'll
    often steal Three Stars from both of these Monster Arena fiends.  Without
    having [Master Thief] equipped, your chances are quite low. 
    
    b) Open Five Chests During Remien Race: If you can open three chests, and beat
    the other chocobo to the end of the Remien Chocobo Race, you'll earn SIXTY
    Three Stars.  Too bad you can only do this once.
    
    c) Unlock Two Area Creations: If you can unlock two area creation monsters at
    the arena, you'll be rewarded with SIXTY Three Stars.
    
    d) Bribe Behemoth King: If you bribe Behemoth King for 1,350,000 gil you
    could get fourteen Three Stars.  Be sure to save before you bribe, in case
    something goes wrong.
    
    [Break MP Limit] armors are also dropped by these enemies: Ultima Weapon (one
    time chance) or the Ultima Buster, on occasion.
    
    Onto some common questions:
    
    
    Q: If I have more than 999 MP worth of Sphere Grid Nodes activated, but I do
       not have [Break MP Limit] yet, will the game remember the nodes that put me
       over 999 MP, so that when I get [Break MP Limit] I will have more HP?
    A: Yes, the game 'remembers' your MP.  Don't worry.
    
    Q: How much MP can you max out with?
    A: The most MP any one character can have is 9999.
    
    
    That's everything you could want about [Break MP Limit].

    The Don Tonberry AP trick is the most efficient way of gaining Sphere Levels.
    With a little work, you could be gaining 99 Sphere Levels per character in just
    under a minute or so.  Ryan Charles first came up with this theory. It is his
    work that allowed so many players to max their stats efficiently.  I'll break
    this down into steps, so that it is easy to follow.
    
    NOTE: When I refer to "AP Weapon", I'm talking about a weapon with the
    following abilities:
    
    [Triple AP] + [Triple Overdrive] + [Overdrive->AP]
    
    Your weapon could have another ability added, but an AP Weapon is essentially
    configured with the aforementioned abilities.
    
    Preperation Step One - Unlock One-Eye
    =====================================
    You can either choose One-Eye or Ultima Buster to unlock.  One-Eye is a lot
    easier to unlock; he is also a lot easier to consisently kill.  If you choose
    to unlock Ultima Buster, you must capture at least FIVE of EVERY monster.  If
    you kill Ultima Buster, though, he could drop a weapon with [Triple AP],
    [Triple Overdrive], and [Overdrive->AP], all abilities you will need anyway.
    If you already have Ultima Buster unlocked, and you can kill him, try doing
    that and seeing what you get.  You could get all the weapons you need right
    there.
    
    To unlock One-Eye, you need to capture:
    4 Floating Eye, found at Mi'ihen Highroad
    4 Buer, found at Thunder Plains
    4 Evil Eye, found at Macalania (Snowy)
    4 Ahriman, found at Mt. Gagazet
    4 Floating Death, found at Omega Ruins
    
    Preperation Step Two - Battle One-Eye
    =====================================
    When you battle One-Eye, you'll have a good chance of getting of getting
    weapons with [Triple AP] on them.  What you want is a weapon with [Triple AP]
    and two extra slots open.  Battle One-Eye until he gives you what you need.  Do
    this for as many characters as you want.
    
    Preperation Step Three - Customize [Overdrive->AP]
    ==================================================
    Next, you'll need to use ten Doors to Tomorrow to customize [Overdrive->AP]
    auto-ability onto a weapon.  Luckily for you, these items are plentiful.  You
    can steal them from Ultima Weaponor bribe some mech warriors.  Bomb King in the
    Monster Arena will drop TWO Doors to Tomorrow if you overkill him.  My favorite
    way of getting Doors To Tomorrow: unlock six Monster Arena Area Creations.
    That is by the far the easiest way.  You'll get 99 Doors To Tomorrow from that,
    and it is considerably easy work.  Use ten Doors To Tomorrow and customize
    [Overdrive->AP] on all your [Triple AP] weapons.  There should now be one more
    slot open.
    
    Preperation Step Four - Customize [Triple Overdrive]
    ====================================================
    This is by far the hardest part of the entire trick.  To customize [Triple
    Overdrive] onto a weapon, you'll need to use thirty Winning Formulas.  Winning
    Formulas can only be bribed from Sandworms or dropped by Ultima Buster.  If you
    plan to bribe a Sandworm, you'll need 900,000 gil for fifteen of them.  Make
    sure you save before you do it, incase something goes wrong.  Ultima Buster
    will drop two Winning Formulas for an overkill.  The easiest way to get a lot
    of Winning Formulas, although you can only do it once, is to unlock EVERY
    Area Creation in the Monster Arena.  It may take some time, but your reward is
    the much needed quantity of 99 Winning Formulas.  Use thirty Winning Formulas
    per weapon and customize three weapons (or more, if you can) with [Triple
    Overdrive].  Now at least three weapons should have:
    
    [Triple AP] + [Triple Overdrive] + [Overdrive->AP]
    
    Preperation Step Five - Setting Overdrive Modes
    ===============================================
    Set all of your characters to Comrade overdrive mode.  If they do not have this
    mode, you will first need to earn it.  Check out the overdrive section of this
    guide for more.
    
    Preperation Step Six - Unlock Don Tonberry
    ==========================================
    To unlock Don Tonberry, you'll need to capture at least one of each of the
    following enemies: Epaaj, Imp, Yowie, Thorn, Dark Element, Nidhogg, Valaha,
    Ghost, and Tonberry.  The Tonberry and Ghost could be considerably elusive, so
    don't give up.  For tips on catching some of these monsters, check out the
    Monster Arena section of the guide.
    
    Preperation Step Six - Preliminary Don Tonbbery Battle
    ======================================================
    The first battle against Don Tonbery is for show, literally.  Equip your
    characters with their AP Weapons.  Then, take on Don Tonberry.
    
    Hit Don Tonberry with each of your characters.  After being hit, Don Tonberry
    counteracts with Karma.  Appropriately named, Karma deals 100 damage per enemy
    you've killed.  Sound confusing?
    
    For example:
    
    
    Tidus has killed 634 enemies.
    
    Tidus would be damaged with Karma for 63,400 damage (634 x 100 = 63,400).
    
    Wakka has killed 539 enemies.
    
    Wakka would be damaged with Karma for 53,900 damage (539 x 100 = 53,900).
    
    Yuna has killed 15 enemies.
    
    Yuna would be damaged with Karma for 1,500 damage (15 x 100 = 1,500).
    
    
    Now it's time to judge what character will be your sacrificial character.  This
    character will need to take about 80,000 to 99,999 damage from karma.  This
    character will also need to have a low HP, prefferably below 5000.
    
    Whatever character you choose to be your sacrifice, change that character's
    overdrive mode to Stoic.
    
    Preperation Step Seven - Raising Karma's Damage (OPTIONAL)
    ==========================================================
    If your charactes are not being hit for enough karma (you'll need to be hit
    for at least 80,000 damage on a LOW HP character), you will need to raise their
    kill count.  Now, you can either kill a lot of enemies normally, or you can use
    a trick.
    
    The trick is rather simple.  Choose the character that you want to raise the
    kill count on.  Make sure that person attacks first in battle, automatically.
    You do not want to have to cast Haste.  [Auto-Haste] would be splendid, as
    would [First Strike].
    
    Once you're sure that your character will attack first in every battle, talk to
    the Monster Arena Owner.  Continually press X.  A turbo controller would work
    wonders, taped down on X.
    
    So what does this do?
    
    Basically, you'll constantly fight and kill Dingo, the first enemy on the the
    Monster Arena list.  By mashing the X button, you'll be killing Dino over and
    over, raising your kill count.
    
    99 Sphere Level Battle
    ======================
    Now it's time to gain 99 Sphere Levels in just one match, after all that
    one-time preperation.  Phew.  Luckily, the AP battles take only a minute or
    two.  Make sure your AP Weapons are equipped.
    
    With your sacrificial character on Stoic, and the other two characters on
    Comrade, start the bout with Don Tonberry.  The sacrificial character should
    attack Don Tonberry.
    
    The low HP sacrificial character should be dealt at least 80,000 damage.  By
    using Triangle, defend with the other characters.  Attack Don Tonberry five or
    six times.
    
    Once you've attack him five or six times, Flee from battle.  Watch the AP sore
    into 99 Sphere Levels.  Sweet.
    
    Why It Works
    ============
    Here's the obvious explanation to why this trick works.  Your character with
    low HP is being dealt a lot of damage.  Overdrive is figured out with this
    formula:
    
    Damage Dealt / Maxmimum HP = Overdrive Charge
    
    So basically, being dealt a lot of damage, to very little HP, is a huge plus.
    In addition, your AP Weapons have [Triple Overdrive] and [Triple AP].
    
    With the AP Weapons, your overdrive charge is converted right into AP, instead
    of overdrive charge.  With three times the overdrive charge, and three times
    the final AP, you're really gaining a lot of AP!
    
    Optimization
    ============
    So how can you optimize this process?  There are a few solutions.
    
    a) Lower your maximum HP by deleting some Sphere Grid HP nodes, something you
    will need to do anyway if you plan on maxing your stats.  If you don't know
    what this means, check out the Stat Optimizing section of the guide.
    
    b) Increase your kill count.  Use the Dingo trick or just kill enemies the
    good, old fashioned way.  We didn't have AP tricks like these, back in the old
    SNES days, son.
    
    c) Use Rikku's mix, Eccentric and Hot Spurs.  Using one, or both, of these
    mix results, will DRASTICALLY increase your AP.  Try it, and see for yourself.
    
    d) Cut down the amount of times you hit Don Tonberry.  Try hitting Don Tonberry
    less times, if you are already gaining enough AP for 99 Sphere Levels.  You
    might only need to hit him two or three times to gain 99 Sphere Levels in one
    battle.  Toy with it.
    
    e) Using [SOS Overdrive], [Double Overdrive], or [Double AP] instead of the
    true, recommend abilities will seriously hurt this trick.  If you use any of
    those abilities, you may have to hit Don Tonberry a lot more times in battle,
    resulting in a lot more damage being dealt.  I strongly recommend that you do
    not use [SOS Overdrive], in any case.
    
    f) Using [Double AP] with [Triple AP] cancels out [Double AP].  Don't bother.
    The same thing applies to overdrives.. [Triple Overdrive] cancels any other,
    weaker overdrive setting such as [SOS Overdrive] or [Double Overdrive].
    
    There you have it.  A complete explanation and detail of the AP trick that
    many games so often use.  Make sure your overdrives are set correctly.  Make
    sure your weapons are set correctly.  I cannot tell you how many times that is
    the simple cause of error in this trick.
    
    OopsImABlueWaffle suggests this trick, as an alternative, in case your HP is
    too high for the other trick to work:
    
    "Get the AP Weapon.  Have your characters learn Loner overdrive.  Go into the
    Sunken Cave to battle a Magic Urn.  Have two members escape and then cast Haste
    on your remaing party member.  Sit back and read a book or something while
    continuously mashing Triangle.  Magic Urn never attacks, so you can do this
    for as long as you like until you get 99 S-lvls."

    Older Final Fantasy fans will remember these magical pots.  Feeding them items,
    such as Elixirs, would result in amazing loads of free experience or AP.
    
    In Final Fantasy X, this is not the case.  Feeding items to Magic Urns does
    nothing, so don't waste your items or your time.
    
    Magic Urns have 999,999 HP.  They can be defeated with only one attack,
    Yojimbo's Zanmato.
    
    Defeating them gives you nothing, however.  NOTHING.  Not a single point of AP
    or even an item.
    
    I recommend Fleeing from Magic Urn whenever you run into them.  They cannot
    be captured.  To "attack" the urn, choose one of its "eyes" and then hope for
    the best.  You will be rewarded an item if you choose the correct eye.
    
    Says Hikensasameyuki:
    
    "There is absolutely no evidence to indicate that there is a 1/5 chance of
    correctly choosing an eye. The most popular current theory supports a
    progressive probability of success based on the number of eyes already
    correctly chosen, thus increasing the difficulty of winning the 'seven prizes
    in all, while supplies last.' This would be something like 4/5 for the first
    two choices, 3/5 for the third and fourth, 2/5 for the fifth and sixth, and
    finally 1/5 for the final choice."
    
    Items you could get from a succesful attack:
    
    Phoenix Down, Lunar Curtain, Ether, Elixir, Silver Hourglass
    
    If you choose the wrong eye, which you will do most of the time, the urn will
    explode, dealing damage to your party.  This damage is done in relation to your
    Magic Defense, so if you have a high Magic Defense stat, you should be alright.
    
    I'd really like to thank Hikensasameyuki for keeping me in check with my
    information.  He provided a lot of corrections to some of my statements.
    Thanks a lot.

    Chapter Twenty-Three: Overdrive Attacks                                <ID023>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    This will explain how to get more overdrive attacks for each character.  Some
    characters are simple, but other characters require a little work to get.
    
    
    ================
    Tidus: Swordplay
    ================
    Tidus's overdrives are all basically sword attacks, with a neat surprise thrown
    in for extra damage.  To deal the most damage with his attacks, stop the moving
    cursor as quickly as you can on the center piece.  Tidus learns new attacks by
    using his old ones, succsessful or not.
    
    Spiral Cut
    ==========
    Spiral Cut is Tidus's default overdrive.  You basically just swing your sword
    and damage one enemy.
    
    Slice and Dice
    ==============
    Learn Slice and Dice by unleashing ten Sprial Cut overdrives.  Slice and Dice
    much better than Spiral Cut; you get six sword slashes, hitting one enemy
    each time with a slash.
    
    Energy Rain
    ===========
    Energy Rain is more powerful than Slice and Dice, but it is not as effective
    against bosses.  To learn Energy Rain, perform twenty more overdrives with
    Tidus, for a total of thirty overdrives performed.  Energy Rain will deal a lot
    of damage to all enemies in one hit.  Slice and Dice will hit for six times,
    a better solution to bosses.
    
    Blitz Ace
    =========
    Tidus's ultimate overdrive is Bltiz Ace, learned after you perform fifty more
    overdrives, raising Tidus's total to eighty.  Blitz Ace unleashes eight slashes
    against the enemies and then tops it off with a blitzball kick at one enemy.
    Once your stats are maxed, Blitz Ace is the second best overdrive in the game,
    behind Wakka's Attack Reels.
    
    
    ==================
    Yuna: Grand Summon
    ==================
    The Grand Summon overdrive is extremely useful early in the game.  Yuna will
    summon an aeon and that summoned aeon will have a full overdrive meter!  If the
    aeon already had a full metter, then he will have two full meters.  Very cool.
    
    
    ============
    Wakka: Slots
    ============
    Wakka's overdrives are much like those of Setzer or Tifa, but they have been
    refined.  The most important thing to remember: you have a lot of time.  Take
    your time and line the slots up correctly.  To learn more overdrives for Wakka,
    you must win Blitzball League and Tournament games.  Wakka does not need to be
    playing on your blitzball team to learn them, however.
    
    Element Reels
    =============
    Wakka's basic overdrive attack is Element Reels.  By matching up the correct
    slots, you can unleash an attack of fire, ice, water, or lightning on all
    enemies.  Lining up two out of the three correct slots, you'll only hit one
    fiend with your attack.
    
    Attack Reels
    ============
    The best attack in the game, Wakka's second overdrive!  To gain this overdrive,
    you must win it as a prize in a random Blitzball Tournament.
    
    You get one hit on the enemy for every "Single Hit" you line up, and two hits
    on the enemy for every "Double Hit".  You'll get not hits for "Miss".  If you
    happen to line up three of the same items, you'll double your attacks.  Read
    these examples if you're having trouble understanding:
    
    SINGLE SINGLE MISS causes two hits, because 1 + 1 + 0 = 2
    
    SINGLE SINGLE SINGLE causes six hits, because 1 + 1 + 1 = 3 (x2 for match)
    
    DOUBLE SINGLE DOUBLE causes five hits, because 2 + 1 + 2 = 5
    
    DOUBLE DOUBLE DOUBLE causes twelve hits, because 2 + 2 + 2 = 6 (x2 for match)
    
    When Wakka hits for twelve hits, it is the best overdrive in the game.  Be sure
    to get it down, and you'll be doing a lot of damage.
    
    Status Reels
    ============
    Once you've been in a total of 250 battles with fiends, Status Reels could
    become a random Blitzball League Prize.  Status Reels has the possibility of
    inflicting different negative status effects.
    
    Aurochs Reels
    =============
    Once you've been in a total of 450 battles with fiends, Aurochs Reels could
    become a random Blitzball League Prize.  Aurochs Reels will hit all enemies for
    a massive amount of damage, one time, if you line up the blinking items.  To
    increase the amount of blinking items, and therefore increasing your chances
    of lining them up correctly, you must have Besaid Aurochs on your blitzball
    team, including Tidus, Wakka, Datto, Letty, Jassu, Botta, and Keepa.  Attack
    Reels still has better potential, because it hits TWELVE times, not just one.
    
    ==========
    Lulu: Fury
    ==========
    Lulu's overdrive is dependent entirely on what Black Magic she currently has at
    her disposal.  Her Fury attacks do not use MP to run, and they can be used even
    while she is Silenced.  Fury attacks can not be reflected, either, which is
    very nice.
    
    With all those good points, there are bad points.  Each Fury spell is about 1/3
    as strong as a normal spell, which means you'll have to hit for THREE Fury
    attacks just to break even.  You'll need seven Fury attacks for the overdrive
    to be worth more a doublecast of your spell.
    
    Lulu's Magic stat directly affects how easy it is to spin the right analog
    stick to unleash Fury, so be sure to raise her Magic.  These are all of the
    Fury attacks that you can unleash:
    
    Unique Magic

    Death (possible instant death on enemies)
    Bio (possible poison on enemies)

    ===================
    Kimahri: Ronso Rage
    ===================
    Ronso Rage is so complicated, it has its own section.  Please see Chapter One's
    section, dedicated entirely to Ronso Rage attacks!
    
    
    ==============
    Auron: Bushido
    ==============
    All of Auron's attacks are learned by collecting Jecht Spheres.  Check out
    Chapter Two of this guide for all the details.
    
    
    ==========
    Rikku: Mix
    ==========
    Rikku can mix and match two different items to create a unique attack.  There
    are sixty-four mixes to obtain.  Check out Rikku's own chapter on mixes.

    Rikku's overdrive allows you to Mix two items together for a unique result.
    Most of the best mixes require rare or expensive items to mix, so be sure to
    mix wisely.  Here are all of her mixes, and the least expensive ways to obtain
    each.  For the best mixes, such as Eccentric, I've included every possibility
    you can use.
    
    If you don't know where to get a certain item, such as Chocobo Feather or a
    Musk, check out the Rare Items section of this guide.  The Rare Items section
    will tell you where to get most of the items I'll tell you to use.
    
    I strongly recommend you stocking 99 Potions, 99 Maps, 99 Softs, etc.  These
    items are extremely cheap, but they are vital to mixes.

    Chapter Twenty-Five: Trio of 9999                                      <ID025>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Rikku's overdrive allows you to Mix two items together, for wacky and often
    unbelievable results.  One of these results is Trio of 9999.
    
    Trio of 9999, defined: When cast on your characters, every action your
    character is boosted up to do 9999 HP worth of healing or damage.  It will not
    lower your power, though, so if you are doing more than 9999 damage, you will
    still do more.
    
    Let's look at some examples.
    
    Example One: Tidus normally attacks for 7000 damage.  Rikku casts Trio of 9999
    on the party, so Tidus now does 9999 damage for the rest of the battle.
    
    Example Two: Yuna's Pray usually heals 1200 HP.  Rikku casts Trio of 9999 on
    the party, so now Yuna's Pray heals 9999 HP to all allies.
    
    Example Three: Auron normally attacks for 23,000 damage.  Rikku casts Trio of
    9999 on the party.  Auron continues to do 23,000 damage.
    
    Example Four: Kimahri has the USE command.  Rikku casts Trio of 9999 on the
    party.  When Kimahri uses the next Al Bhed Potion, it will heal for 9999 HP.
    
    Example Five: Wakka is ready to use his Attack Reels.  Rikku casts Trio of 9999
    on the party.  Each of Wakka's hits from the Attack Reels now do 9999 damage.
    
    Example Six: Lulu is ready to use a Phoenix Down to revive Tidus.  Rikku casts
    Trio of 9999 on the party.  Lulu uses a Phoenix Down, reviving Tidus and
    healing him 9999 HP.  Tidus does not have Trio of 9999 status on him, however,
    because he was dead while it was casted.
    
    That should perfectly illustrate what Trio of 9999 can do.  Now, you may be
    wondering what you have to mix to obtain this amazing status.  Well, read the
    next list.  Mix any of these combinations together to cast Trio of 9999 on the
    entire active party.  The rare items are generally listed first.
    
    If you die, all effects are negated.  Neoflip02, thanks.

    This chapter will explain in detail how to get any item you could possibly need
    for Rikku's mixes, customizing your weapons and armor, or simply for use
    against a powerful boss.  This list will not tell you what bosses drop what
    items--this will only tell you RELIABLE places to get each item.  Bosses can
    only be fought once, so listing them here is simply a waste of time.  Likewise,
    if you can steal an item, it is cheaper and more efficient to do so than
    bribing for that item.  If you don't like the methods listed below, check out
    an Item List FAQ.
    
    Please note:
    
    You must purchase Power Distillers, Mana Distillers, Speed Distillers, and
    Ability Distillers, they can not be stolen or bribed.  Use those purchased
    Distillers to take whatever sphere you want from Kottos (Monster Arena).  If
    you overkill Kottos, after he has been fed a Distiller, he will drop 40
    spheres!
    
    
    ================
    Valuable Spheres
    ================
    These spheres allow you to fill in a blank node on the Sphere Grid with a new
    node, such as HP+300 or Strength+4.  All of the enemies that drop these very
    special spheres are found at the Monster Arena, and they need to be unlocked
    before you can battle them.  Sometimes, instead of the designated sphere, a
    monster will drop Dark Matter.  If that happens, just fight him again until you
    get the sphere you need.

    A yojimbo, in Japanese, is a paid bodyguard.  The secret aeon Yojimbo is just
    that: a hired out aeon bodyguard.  Instead of attacking with physical attacks
    or magic, Yojimbo utilizes one of four moves:  Daigoro, Kozuka, Wakizashi, or
    Zanmato.

    Unlocking Yojimbo
    =================
    To unlock Yojimbo, you must head to the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth, also called
    the Sunken Cave.  The Sunken Cave is located north of the Calm Lands, so take
    your airship to the Calm Lands and start heading northeast.  A chocobo would
    speed things up.
    
    Once you've left the Calm Lands, via the northeastern exit, head down a small
    hill.  This is the area where you'd find the Rusty Sword.  Look around for a
    small cave entrance, enter it, and proceed.
    
    It'd be a good idea to have a weapon with Capture on as you progress through
    the cave, so you can capture the monsters here.  Tonberry, for example, is
    extremely rare.  Should you run into one, it'd be a blessing to capture it.
    
    You'll fight a brief battle against Yojimbo, summoned by another aeon trainer.
    Defeat Yojimo using either Bahamut's overdrive or a bunch of powerful attacks
    from Shiva, followed by her overdrive.
    
    Enter Yojimbo's chamber, making sure you have a good deal of extra money on
    you.  You'll be spending approximately 200,000 gil to hire Yojimbo's services.
    For Final Fantasy VI fans, this works similar to hiring the services of
    Shadow and his dog, Interceptor.  However, once you've paid Yojimbo, he'll
    always remain loyal to you.
    
    When he asks you what your purpose of hiring him out is, answer the third
    option, which lowers his price.
    
    Bid slightly more than half of what he asks for.  He'll make rude remarks, but
    ignore them.  Try to add a little gil each time, in attempt to lower his price
    to about 200,000 gil.  You'll be paying a little more, but it's no real
    problem.  That money can be earned with ease.  See the quick money-making
    chapter of this guide.
    
    Every time you want Yojimbo to battle, you'll have to pay him even more gil.
    Luckily, you can pay him just 1 gil and he'll attack.  For his most powerful
    attacks, you'll need to pay him even more gil.
    
    Once Auron is powered up with his Mars Crest, Yojimbo will be able to break the
    damage limit of 9999.  For more information about the Mars Crest, check out
    Auron's Celestial Weapon section of this guide, Chapter Fifteen.
    
    Yojimbo can not learn any Black Magic, Skills, White Magic, etc.  He's limited
    to his four moves.  He has no overdrives, either.
    
    Daigoro
    -------
    Yojimbo's dog will attack for minor damage.  You'll get this any time pay
    Yojimbo less than a few hundred gil.
    
    Kozuka
    ------
    Yojimbo will attack with three small daggers.  Pay Yojimbo 500 gil and you'll
    usually see this attack.
    
    Wakizashi
    ---------
    Withdrawing his sword, Yojimbo will inflict major damage to a single enemy.
    For 1000 gil, Wakizashi will most likely be performed.  I strongly recommend
    using Wakizashi once you've broke the damage limit.  For it's cost, it really
    deals the best damage.  If Yojimbo is motivated enough, he'll slice all the
    fiends for damage, not just one.
    
    Zanmato
    -------
    The most powerful attack in Final Fantasy X, Zanmato will cost you
    millions of dollars to perform.  Zanmato kills ANY enemy in the game, including
    bosses.
    
    Zanmato is determined by Motivation Level.  Whether or not you perform it on
    an enemy is determined by a complex formula and series of events.
    
    Before I discuss Motivation Level, I have to thank Ultimania Guide for
    discovering all of this information.  Oliver Hague, Dual Zero, Shinryu, and
    especially Azure Edge are all a HUGE reason this exists.  Azure Edge went
    through a lot of trouble to compile this all together.  I've taken their work
    and written it out in a clear, easy to follow manner.  Thanks Azure Edge.
    
    To decide what attack Yojimbo will use, the game runs a very complex set of
    numbers through a formula.  Once these numbers are run, you'll get a Motivation
    number, which you can never physically see.  This number determines the attack
    Yojimbo selects.
    
    In this formula, there are five variables:
    
    Compatibility, Gil Paid, Overdrive, Random, Zanmato Level
    
    Those five variables determine Motivation, which is the key to the formula.
    Think of Motivation as a scale of points, starting at 0, where higher
    motivation allows for a stronger attack.
    
    Each turn, Motivation resets.  Motivation is only calculated with regards to
    the turn at hand.  Paying him 1000 gil on one turn, and then 3000 gil on the
    the current turn only counts the 3000 gil for this turn.
    
    Once the game decides your Motivation Level, it checks if it is over 80.  If it
    is over 80, then you will unleash Zanmato.  If you do not have an 80 Motivation
    Level, then the attack will be selected:
    
    
    If Yojimbo's motivation is 00 to 31, he will use Daigoro.
    
    If Yojimbo's motivation is 32 to 47, he will use Kozuka.
    
    If Yojimbo's motivation is 48 to 63, he will use Wakizashi.
    
    If Yojimbo's motivation is 64 or higher, he will use Wakizashin on all enemies.
    
    
    You must decide how much money you want to pay Yojimbo.  The more you pay him,
    the higher your motivation will be.  Remember, gil paid only affects him on
    a one turn basis.  Gil is not cumulative.
    
    If you're extremely rich, you could add up to 56 points of motivation onto
    your Motivation Scale, just by paying him gil.  Check out this table for a
    complete listing of how much motivation you'll add for your money.

    536,870,912 - 999,999,999     56
    
    
    After deciding how much Motivation to add because of gil, the game decides how
    much motivation to add because of compatibility.
    
    Compatibility is a relatively weak factor.  It can only add up to 8 Motivation
    Points maximum.  However, it does affect your chances of getting a free
    Zanmato attack!  For more information about a free Zanmato attack, continue to
    read on to the end.
    
    Yojimbo begins with a 50 compatibility stat, but he can reach as high as 255 or
    as low a 0.  You cannot see this stat, but it works much the same way that
    Attack, Defense, Magic, etc., work.
    
    Using Kozuka does not affect your compatibility meter.  However, many actions
    do.  How to change the compatibility meter, for better or worse:
    
    
    Paying no gil on a turn, which dismissed him:          -20 compatibility
    Yojimbo dies while in a battle:                        -10 compatibility
    Yojimbo is dismissed without being paid for any tunrs: -03 compatibility
    Yojimbo uses Daigoro:                                  - 1 compatibility
    Yojimbo uses Wakizashi:                                + 1 compatibility
    Yojimbo uses Wakizashi on all enemies:                 + 3 compatibility
    Yojimbo uses Zanmato:                                  + 4 compatibility
    
    
    As you can see, it is extremely difficult to raise your compatibility with
    Yojimbo, especially since you can never see the compatibility stat.  To
    determine how much compatibility will add, you'll use the formula:
    
    Compatibility ÷ 30 = Motivation
    
    Therefore, even with a 255 compatibility, the most you can add is 8 Motivation
    Points.  The game does not consider decimals in its calculations.
    
    As I mentioned earlier, you can get Zanmato for free.  If your compatibility
    is maxed out to 255, you'll have a one-in-four chance of automatically using
    Zanmato on weak enemies.  Weak enemies are defined later on in this section.
    
    Another minor, yet somewhat important, factor is the overdrive meter.  When
    Yojimbo's overdrive meter is full, you'll get two free Motivation Points added
    to your scale.  Using attacks does not use up your overdrive meter, so these
    two free points can be reused, as long as Yojimbo remains alive.
    
    Perhaps the most important factor is the random bonus you'll be given.  Every
    time you attack, your Motivation is given anywhere from 0 to 63 free Motivation
    Points.  You have absolutely no control over this number.
    
    So far, you've seen how to calculate most of the Motivation.
    
    Now it's time to introduce the most complicated section of Yojimbo's attacks,
    the Zanmato Level.  This does not affect your Motivation too much, though.
    
    Every enemy in the game, including bosses, is assigned a Zanmato Level.  This
    level decides how easy it is to perform Zanmato on an enemy.
    
    Zanmato Level One is easy, while Zanmato Level Five is harder.
    
    Use this complicated formula:
    
    C = Compatibility Motivation
    P = Gil Paid This Turn
    T = Total Gil Held
    
    C * ( .75 + [(P ÷ 2) ÷ T] ) = X
    
    If you hired Yojimbo to help with your training as a summoner or you hired
    Yojimbo to destroy fiends, take your variable X and input it according to the
    fiend you are facing.
    
    Zanmato Level One Fiend:      X ÷ 1
    Zanmato Level Two Fiend:      X ÷ 2
    Zanmato Level Three Fiend:    X ÷ 3
    Zanmato Level Four Fiend:     X ÷ 4
    Zanmato Level Five Fiend:     X ÷ 5
    
    If you hired him to defeat very strong enemies, input X like so:
    
    Zanmato Level One Fiend:      X ÷ 1.25
    Zanmato Level Two Fiend:      X ÷ 1.25
    Zanmato Level Three Fiend:    X ÷ 1.25
    Zanmato Level Four Fiend:     X ÷ 2.5
    Zanmato Level Five Fiend:     X ÷ 2.5
    
    Your final result, after inputting X: Motivation Points.
    
    How do you know your enemy's Zanmato Level?  All Monster Arena fiends are
    Zanmato Level Five.  Other than that, you'll have to use this chart:

    You've now finished.  It's time to use the final formula.
    
    G = Gil Paid Motivation
    C = Compatibility Motivation
    O = Overdrive Motivation
    R = Random Motivation
    Z = Zanmato Level Motivation
    
    G + C + O + R + Z = Current Motivation Total
    
    
    If that total exceeds 80, you'll perform Zanmato.  If it doesn't, refer to the
    information near the top of the Motivation section for a listing of what will
    happen.
    
    Sometimes Yojimbo might attack without being paid.  The chance of this:
    
    Compatibility ÷ 1024 = Chance of Free Attack
    
    You have a small chance, no matter how it looks.  Should he attack for free,
    he'll use the formula below to determine his attack:
    
    (Compatibility ÷ 4) + Random Number = Free Motivation
    
    The random number is anything from 0 to 63.  Again, if the Free Motivation
    number is greater than 80, he'll perform Zanmato.  If not, then refer to the
    information at the top of the Motivation section to determine what attack he
    will use instead.
    
    If you really want to see Zanmato, but you are on a tight budget, just follow
    the following useful tips and one day you'll see Zanmato.
    
    #1 - Never pay Yojimbo 0 gil.  He'll lose a great deal of compatibility that's
         not easily made up for.
    
    #2 - Never allow Yojimbo to fall in combat.  He'll lose a lot of compatibility.
    
    #3 - Never dismiss Yojimbo without first utilizing his services at least once.
    
    #4 - Try to pay Yojimbo at least 1000 gil every time you use him.
    
    #5 - Keep Yojimbo's overdrive meter full.  It will boost his Motivation two
         free points!
    
    Of course, if you feel like it, you can spend all your gil and just hope he
    does Zanmato.  I strongly recommend saving before you do this.

    Anima is another hidden aeon that you can make use of.  You'll find him at the
    Baaj Temple, the same temple you washed up at in the beginning of the game.
    
    Before you can even begin, you will need to unlock Baaj Temple on your list of
    airship coordinates.  It is located at approximately X-14 and Y-57.
    
    Once you've reached Baaj Temple, you'll have to battle a boss.
    
    Prepare yourself for battle.  You'll be fighting Geosgaeno, the big thing who
    nearly ate you alive back in the day.  Chances are you'll have fun killing him.
    
    He's not too hard, with just over 30,000 HP.  Keep in mind only Tidus, Wakka,
    and Rikku will be able to help you underwater, so they need to able to handle
    the beast.  It's not a hard fight.  Clear him out and enter the temple.  There
    is a chance that you might have grabbed a [No Encounters] weapon from
    Geosgaeno.  If so, hold on to it.  It's a rare, neat glitch.
    
    Go inside an begin to activate the statues.  Each statue represents a temple
    you've been to and grabbed the Destruction Sphere from.  Bevelle's Statue will
    always be activated, because you cannot return to Bevelle Temple.  In order to
    complete the temple's requirements, you've already grabbed the Destruction
    Sphere.  It's impossible not to, or else you wouldn't have left the temple.  If
    you need more convincing, refer to Chapter Eighteen.
    
    The statues are arranged like so:
    
    Besaid (Valefor)    [ ]       [ ] Bevelle (Bahamut)
    Macalania (Shiva)   [ ]       [ ] Djose (Ixion)
    Zanarkand           [ ]       [ ] Kilika (Ifrit)
    
    Activate them all, grabbing the treasures you see, too.  If you cannot get a
    statue to light up, return to the Temple that you need and grab the Destruction
    Sphere from there.  Refer to the "Cloister of Trials" solutions chapter of this
    guide for help.  Before you can return to any temple, you must first revisit
    the Bevelle Highbridge and view a cutscene there.
    
    Once all of them are activated, you may proceed and get Anima, a truely
    powerful aeon!
    
    Anima will break the damage limit of 9999 by default.
    
    Here is what Anima begins with, by default:
    
    Skills                        Black Magic
    ------                        -----------
    Sleep Attack       5 MP       Fire           4 MP      Blizzara       8 MP
    Silence Attack     5 MP       Thunder        4 MP      Firaga        16 MP
    Dark Attack        5 MP       Water          4 MP      Thundaga      16 MP
    Sleep Buster      10 MP       Blizzard       4 MP      Waterga       16 MP
    Silence Buster    10 MP       Fira           8 MP      Blizzaga      16 MP
    Dark Buster       10 MP       Thundara       8 MP      Bio           10 MP
    Zombie Attack     10 MP       Watera         8 MP      Death         20 MP
    
    Anima's overdrive, Oblivion, deals non-elemental damage.  Pain, her unique
    special attack, is a magic attack that deals non-elemental damage.  It is
    extremely useful for defeating Jumbo Flan.

    Chapter Twenty-Eight: Magus Sisters                                    <ID029>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Before you can get the Magus Sisters, you'll have to unlock both Anima and
    Yojimbo.  So do that first.
    
    Your next step is to head to Remien Temple.  To get there, ride a chocobo to
    the southern entrance (opposite of Zanarkand).  You'll see a feather on the
    ground there.  Press X to jump with the feather and then proceed forward.
    
    Enter the temple and defeat Belgemine's Aeons.
    
    Here's a guide to defeating each aeon and ultimately grabbing the Flower
    Sceptor.
    
    Valefor (20,000 HP)
    ===================
    Prizes: First Time     - Summoner's Soul
            Second Time    - Lightning Gem x4
            All Others     - Power Sphere x4
    
    It's an easy battle.  Valefor is incredibly weak, and he has a low HP.  Not a
    problem here.  If you are having problems with Valefor, Yuna'a level is far too
    low to defeat the other aeons.
    
    Ifrit (28,000 HP)
    =================
    Prizes: First Time     - Aeon's Soul
            Second Time    - X-Potion x30
            All Others     - Mana Sphere x5
    
    Don't use fire attacks.  A nice dose of Ice attacks from Anima should eliminate
    him in no time at all.
    
    Ixion (30,000 HP)
    =================
    Prizes: First Time     - Chocobo Feather x10
            All Others     - Power Sphere x8
    
    Make sure you don't hit Ixion with Thunder attacks, as he absorbs them.  Water
    magic is your easiest option.
    
    Shiva (20,000 HP)
    =================
    Prizes: First Time     - Mega Potion x60
            All Others     - Star Curtain x6
    
    Shiva will dodge most physical attacks.  Use a steady dose of Firaga, and
    she'll be gone.  If you miss with too many physical attacks, she'll have an
    overdrive, Diamond Dust, ready to use on your aeon.
    
    Bahamut (35,000 HP)
    ===================
    Prizes: First Time     - Flower Sceptor
            All Others     - Mana Sphere x8
    
    You'll get the Flower Sceptor the very first time you defeat Bahamut, which
    means you won't be getting it again.  To defeat Bahamut, use another big gun
    aeon like Anima or even Shiva.
    
    Now that you've grabbed the Flower Sceptor, you'll have to unlock Catoblepas in
    the Monster Arena by catching one of each of these monsters, all found at Mt.
    Gagazet:
    
    Bandersnatch                Mt. Gagazet Trails
    Grat                        Mt. Gagazet Trails
    Grenade                     Mt. Gagazet Trails
    Bashura                     Mt. Gagazet Trails
    Ahriman                     Mt. Gagazet Trails
    Grendel                     Mt. Gagazet Trails
    Dark Flan                   Mt. Gagazet Cavern
    Mandragora                  Mt. Gagazet Cavern
    Behemoth                    Mt. Gagazet Cavern
    Splasher                    Mt. Gagazet Ponds
    Achelous                    Mt. Gagazet Ponds
    Maelspike                   Mt. Gagazet Ponds
    
    Now talk to the Monster Arena owner.  He'll cough up the Blossom Crown.  Return
    to the Remien Temple, head to the back, and then use the two newly acquired
    items (Flower Sceptor and Blossum Crown) to unseal the door.  You've just
    grabbed the last aeons.  They have an extremely long overdrive, but they can
    break the damage limit automatically.  Their default "attacks":
    
    Commands
    --------
    Do as you will.          Lets the sister decide.
    Fight!                   Attack with physical or special attack.
    Help each other!         Cast supportive magic, such as Auto-Life.
    Go, go!                  Attack with magic or skills.
    Offense!                 Attack with magic attacks.
    Defense!                 Defend with defensive skills.
    What happened to you?    Use Drain, Osmose, or Lancet attacks.
    Combine powers!          Unleash the triple overdrive attack.
    One More Time            Ask to perform the same action again.
    Dismiss                  Dismiss the aeons away like any other aeon.
    
    Cindy, the rather fat aeon, will use mostly healing magic.  With a little luck,
    she'll cast Auto-Life on all your aeons!  Her special attack is Camisade, a
    strong jumping attack at one fiend.
    
    The red aeon, Sandy, leads the way with Razzia and other powerful physical
    attacks.  Razzia lowers the fiend's defense.  A good tactic before unleashing
    the almighty Passado...
    
    Mindy, the small bumblebee aeon will unleash Passado if you're lucky.  Passado
    does fifteen hits of damage.  If your stats are maxed, she could be doing
    99,999 damage PER HIT, for a total of nearly 1,500,000 damage in just one turn.
    
    For all the Magus Sisters, use the One More Time command to ask the aeon to
    perform the same move over.  Especially useful if you want to cast a lot of
    Auto-Life or unleash Passado a few times.

    Chapter Thirty: Earning Gil                                            <ID030>
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    If you need to make gil quickly, there's few better methods than Scudobuio's
    newest method of earning gil.  Read through this and you'll be making tons of
    gil in no time.  Follow the steps in order and you will have no problems.
    
    [1] Use a Save Sphere to get to the Airship, and go to Kilika Port.
    [2] Go to the shop, just to the west and south of here the Airship leaves you.
    [3] Purchase as many armors as you can carry for Tidus.
    [4] Use a Save Sphere to get to the Airship, and go to the Calm Lands.
    [5] Go to the Monster Arena, to the east of where the Airship leaves you.
    [6] Fight Kottos, who drops 40 Healing Springs for an overkill.
    [7] Customize [SOS Regen] on the armor you purchased from Kilika by using the
        Healing Springs Kottos dropped.
    [8] Sell the armor for a tidy profit (average 33,371 Gil per armor).
    [9] Repeat.
    
    Upon checking, I've found 15 places at the end of the game that sell armor.
    Kilika is your best deal for buying armor to customize, according to my
    calculations.  Now do the math:
    
    The armor in Kilika costs 2,250 Gil. You can hold 178 items of equipment. For
    the sake of a simple example, let us suppose your inventory is less than half
    full, and that you can purchase 100 armors, for a total cost of 225,000.
    
    Customizing 1 armor with [SOS Regen] uses 12 Healing Springs. To customize 100
    armors, we will need 1,200 Healing Springs. Sounds like a lot, but we can get
    40 Healing Springs for overkilling Kottos, which means that we need to get 40
    Healing Springs from Kottos 30 times.
    
    Fighting Kottos costs 6,000 Gil. If we only needed to fight Kottos 30 times,
    that would be 180,000 Gil. But Kottos also drops Dark Matter as a rare item,
    instead  of Healing Springs. Conservatively (from the perspective of our final
    result) assume that 1 in every 5 drops from Kottos is Dark Matter. That means
    we must fight Kottos 36 times, for a total of 216,000 Gil.
    
    That brings our overhead cost to 225,000 + 216,000 = 441,000 Gil.
    
    Each armor that we customize already has [HP +5%] in one slot, and will sell
    for 1/4 it's purchased price, a paltry 562 Gil, as calculated by the formula:
    
    (25 * 15) + 187 = 562
    
    By customizing [SOS Regen] in a second slot, we raise the selling price of this
    weapon by more than 67 times to 37,781 Gil, as calculated by the formula:
    
    (((25 + 5,000) * 15) + 187) / 2 = 37,781
    
    (Note the changes to the formula in bold, which identify the differences from 
    the previous formula.)  This brings our gross profit for 100 armors to
    3,778,100 Gil.
    
    Gross profit less overhead cost is net profit.  Our net profit is thus:
    
    3,778,100 - 441,000 = 3,337,100 (average 33,371 Gil
    per armor)
    
    Note that further customization does not significantly increase the selling
    price of the armor, and only increases the time and/or Gil required by this
    method.  With max stats, the algorithm above is the fastest way to make Gil,
    even faster than fighting Mimics or One-Eye. Or at least, no one has found a
    faster way.
