[001] I. Introduction
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

This FAQ was written by Bremen to help all of you who may need it or for those
of you who are just curious about the game.


*Note: While I will make every attempt to avoid ruining the story, this is
       NOT a spoiler free FAQ/Walkthrough!  I cannot guarantee the story
       will not be ruined for you by reading this FAQ.  Details of the
       prequel to this game, Final Fantasy X, will be revealed as well so I
       would recommend playing that game first before starting Final Fantasy
       X-2 and reading this FAQ.

[002] II. How To Use This Guide
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The [###] is the search code.  Use it to search for specific sections in this
FAQ/Walkthrough.

Use the find feature in conjunction with the section search codes above
listed on the "Table of Contents" to page through to specific sections of the
FAQ. Basically, the FAQ is divided into 21 sections.  Section "XII." is
the walkthrough portion of the FAQ and probably the most useful.  Everything
else is just extra.  The Walkthrough Section is the full walkthrough.  For a
short version of it see the Short Walkthrough.  The short version allows you
to quickly complete the game without the excess of sidequests.  It is also
fairly spoiler free.

[003] III. Game Information & Story
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Title:		   Final Fantasy X-2
Publisher:	   Square-Enix
Developer:	   Square-Enix
Genre/Category:	   Role-Playing
System:		   PlayStation 2
Number of Players: 1
Release Date:	   11/18/2003
Play Time:	   20-100+ Hours
Replay:		   20 hours - Infinite (depending on your definition of fun)
Story:

This information will tell some details of Final Fantasy X.  So if you
haven't played it yet, don't read this. 

Final Fantasy X-2 is the the first true sequel to any Final Fantasy
game.  It is a sequel to Final Fantasy X and I would strongly recommend 
playing through that game before starting this one.  Now, on with the story.
        
Kimahri found a sphere movie on Mt.Gagazet containing footage of someone who
looked like Tidus locked in a cell.  This gives her hope that he is still
alive so she teams up with Rikku and Paine on a quest as a Gullwing to find
more spheres and hopefully unlock the mystery of if this person in the movie
is indeed Tidus and more importantly, if he is still alive.  Thus begins the
story.

[008] VI. Menu System
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The [M##] is the search code for Menu System ONLY.  Use it to search for a
specific Menu item in this section.  Each Menu item has its own information
about it what it is used for and any submenus contained within it.  Use the
search code listed next to a particular Menu item to jump to that section for
it or simply scroll down to it.

The menu system in Final Fantasy X-2 is very similar to any other RPG's you
have played before.  You access the main menu by pressing the "Triangle"
button anywhere in the game.  The only exception is during a battle or a
cutscene.  The main menu is unavailable at those times.

Here is a list of the menu items on the main menu and their appropriate
search codes:

[M01] Items
[M02] White Magic
[M03] Equip
[M04] Garment Grids
[M05] Abilities
[M06] Accessories
[M07] Dresspheres
[M08] Config

Here is a quick diagram to help you get the idea:

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

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- [M01] Items ----------------------------------------------------------------

The Items menu allows you to access any items you have collected throught the
game.  There are regular items and key items.  There are three functions you
can perform from the Items subscreen.  They are:

Use  - Selecting this submenu item allows you to select a consumable item
       from your item list and then subsequently use that item on a
       character.  You may notice that some of the items in your list are
       greyed out.  These items can only be used in battle.

Sort - Sort has two subfunctions.  Manual and Auto.  Manual sorting allows
       you to sort the items one at a time in the order you see fit.  Auto
       sorting automatically sorts them for you.

Key  - The Key Items list simply shows you any key items you have collected
       and provides information reagarding each of them.  You cannot select
       and use a key item.  These items work automatically when the time
       comes.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- [M02] White Magic ----------------------------------------------------------

The White Magic menu item only appears after you have obtained a White Mage
Dressphere.

This menu allows you to go into your available white magic spells that one
of your characters has learned.  When you select the White Magic menu item
you will then need to select which character you want to utilize.  Different
spells might be available depending on the person you select.  For example if
Yuna has learned Curaga and Paine hasn't learned it yet, then when you select
Yuna, you can use Curaga and her MP will be used.  But if you select Paine
she will not have the spell available.

After you select a spell you will have to cast in on your character(s).


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- [M03] Equip ----------------------------------------------------------------

This menu item has a little more depth than the others.  There are three
different kinds of equipment you can equip.

Garment Grids
Dresspheres
Accessories x2

Garment Grids
Each character can equip 1 Garment Grid.  A Garment Grid basically is like a
container.  It holds Dresspheres.  There is more to it than that but for now
that is what you need to know.  See the Garment Grid section of this FAQ for
more information on Garment Grids.

Dresspheres
Each characters can assign 1 default Dressphere.  Notice how I didn't say
equip 1 Dressphere.  This is because multiple Dresspheres are attached to one
Garment Grid in most cases.  However you must select a default Dressphere to
start battles with.  This is so you aren't defenseless in battle.  You can 
switch between Dresspheres during battle, however you must select a default.
The Dressphere you select as your default MUST be one from your currently
equipped Garment Grid.  The others will be unavailable to you.

Accessories
Each character can equip 2 accessories.  These accessories give you
protection, provide better defense, more strength, protection against status
effect, etc.  You can equip two of the same accessory to double the effect
if you have them.

Now, as you equip/unequip Garment Grids/Dresspheres/Accessories, you will
notice that the Main Commands, Auto-Abilities, and character stats portions
of the screen will change.  They will automatically update to reflect the
new equipment.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- [M04] Garment Grids --------------------------------------------------------

This is where you manage your Garment Grids.  You can add, remove, and 
rearrange Dresspheres on your Garment Grids in this section.

See the Garment Grid section of this FAQ for more information on Garment
Grids.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- [M05] Abilities ------------------------------------------------------------

This is where you manage your Abilities.  You can change which abilities you
want to learn from this menu item.

See the Abilities section of this FAQ for more information on Abilities.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- [M06] Accessories ----------------------------------------------------------

The Accessories submenu is pretty useless in my opinion.  It allows you to
scroll through your list of accessories and either Examine them to see what
they each do, or sort them manually or automatically the same way you sort the
items.  I say it is pointless because you can get the same information by
simply scrolling through the list of accessories as you are deciding which one
to equip.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- [M07] Dresspheres ----------------------------------------------------------

The Dresspheres menu item is another fairly useless screen.  It basically 
allows you to view a list of your currently obtained Dresspheres and some
information regarding them.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- [M08] Config ---------------------------------------------------------------

The Config menu item obviously allows you to set your configuration/option
settings for the game.  

There are several options:

Spherechange         Normal  |  Short  |  Off
 - Normal shows the full dressphere change animation everytime.
 - Short show a shorter version of the dressphere change animation everytime.
 - Off shows no animation and you simply swap instantly.

ATB Mode             Active  |  Wait
 - Active allows enemies to attack you while you are fumbling through the
   menus.
 - Wait will set it up so that enemies will not attack you while you are in
   the menus during battle.  They will however still attack you even if it is
   your turn if you are on the top level of the menu (where it says attack,
   item, etc.).  But once you go down one level in the menu, it pauses
   everything else.  This is an easier mode to start out with.

ATB Speed            Slow  |  Normal  |  Fast
 - Slow simply slows the active time bar to a crawl.  This maked battles go
   more slowly and is a good mode to start out in for beginners.
 - Normal is slightly faster than slow.  It is the default speed.
 - Fast makes the battles fly by.  I suggest using this mode once you get a
   handle on the battle system.

Cursor               Default  |  Memory
 - Default simply resets the cursor position in the battle menus to the
   default position.
 - Memory remembers the last command each character used so you can just
   press "X" the next time to do the same thing again.  This mode can suck
   if you mess up and cast Curaga twice for no reason.  Use this mode if
   you are lazy.

Battle Help          On  |  Off
 - On turns the battle help on.  This gives you good information during
   battles.  Leave it on.
 - Off turns it off.  Don't turn it off.

Vibration            On  |  Off
 - On turns the vibration in the controller on.  Final Fantasy X-2 doesn't
   use this feature much so I recommend turning it on.
 - Off turns it off.  Useful if it annoys you.

Subtitles            On  |  Off
 - On makes it so that all the conversations in the game have subtitles on
   the screen as well.  Useful if you have the sound turned down low and
   you missed a part of what someone said because someone in the house
   makes a loud sound at a crucial part of the scene.  Ever happen to 
   anyone else??
 - Off turn them off.  Useful if they annoy you.


Subtitle Names       On  |  Off
 - On turns on the name of the current person speaking in the game so you
   know who is talking.  I always have this on.
 - Off turns them off.

Guide Map            On  |  Off
 - On turns on the mini-map on your screen when traveling around on the
   world map.  Leave this on.  Never turn it off.  Ususally a red arrow
   will be displayed telling you a general direction in which you need
   to go.
 - Off turns it off.

Sound                Mono  |  Stereo
 - Mono turns the sound to Mono.
 - Stereo turns the sound to Stereo.

Screen Position
 - This enables you to adjust the picture to be correctly positioned on your
   screen.  Useful for some I suppose.

[009] VII. Battle System
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Battling in Final Fantasy X-2 is somewhat different from what you may be used
to.  The battles have a sense of urgency to them to the the ATB or Active
Time Battle system.  This means when it is your characters turn, the enemy
can still attack you.  Even if you set it to "Wait" mode instead of "Active"
the enemies will still attack you until you go down at least one level in the
menu.  So you can no longer sit around and figure out what you are going to
do for ten minutes.  This is kind of neat because it makes the battles go 
quicker and they get pretty wild.  Enemies and characters are attacking each
other at the same time or in mid-motion.  This also allows you to have all
3 of your characters go up and attack an enemy at the same time.  If you do
this and time it correctly the attacks will be chained together and do much
more damage.

Chaining your attacks is basically timing the attacks so that your characters
attack in rapid succession one after the other before an enemy can get a move
inbetween.  If you do this your damage will be increased.

In battle you have basic things you can do.  You can execute a command such
as Attack and Pray, execute and ability such as Cure or Fire, use an Item,
and you can escape.

Abilities and commands come from Dresspheres which are in turn attached to
a Garment Grid, but we'll get into that more a little bit later in the
the next few sections.

Garment Grids, Dresspheres, and Abilites are all part of Battling.  You must
master these aspects of the game in order survive.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[010] -- Garment Grids -------------------------------------------------------

The [G##] is the search code for Garment Grids ONLY.  Use it to search for
specific Garment Grids in this section.  First I will list the Garment Grids
in the game.  Each Garment Grids has its own information about it such as
the location where it can be found, # of Sphere Nodes, # of Gates, and any
bonuses it has.  Use the search code listed next to a particular Garment
Grid to jump to that section for it or simply scroll down to it.

There are 60 Garment Grids in the game.

Garment Grids are essential to battle.  They are the foundation of all
Dresspheres and Abilities.  To start you must have a Garment Grid.  When you
start the game you have the First Steps Garment Grid.  This is simply a Grid
with six slots in it to place Dresspheres on.  It does nothing else.  So I
place six different Dresspheres on this grid and then equip that grid on
Yuna.  I then set a default Dressphere for Yuna as well, so that every battle
I will start out with that Dressphere equipped.  Now, during battle I can 
switch between the four different Dresspheres as many times as I want by 
pressing L1 and selecting a different Dressphere on the Grid when it is
Yuna's turn.  That's the basic gist of the Garment Grid.

Now there are also advanced Garment Grids that have something on them called
gates.  An example would be the Vanguard Garment Grid.  It has five slots for
Dresspheres with a gate (looks like a sphere) between each of them.  Kind of
like a spider web.  At each intersection of the web would be either a slot
for a Dressphere or a gate.  Now, as you switch in battle between the
Dresspheres you will pass through the gate that is between those two
Dresspheres.  What this does is give your character some sort of bonus for
passing through the gate like Strength +10 for that battle only.  Every gate
has it's own bonus it gives to your character for passing through the gate.
So using an advanced Garment Grid is much better than using a standard one
with no gates in most cases.

Here is a list of the available Garment Grids and descriptions of them:

           (Arranged in alphabetical order)

The [D##] is the search code for Dresspheres ONLY.  Use it to search for
specific Dresspheres in this section.  First I will list the Dresspheres in
the game.  Each Dressphere has its own information about it such as abilities
and commands attached to it.  Use the search code listed next to a particular
Dressphere to jump to that section for it or simply scroll down to it. 

There are 17 Dresspheres in the game.  14 standard Dresspheres and 3 special
Dresspheres.

- [D00] Dresspheres ----------------------------------------------------------

There are many Dresspheres in Final Fantasy X-2.  When a character puts on a
Dressphere they not only have new abilities and commands available to them,
but they also change their physical appearance during battle.  For example,
if Yuna wears her Gunner Dressphere, she uses two guns to attack and looks
like a Gunner.  If she changes to a Warrior Dressphere, she uses a large
sword to attack and has different clothes on.  In order to use a Dressphere
it must be placed on something called a Garment Grid.  Please read the 
Garment Grid section above for more information on them.

Each Dressphere has it's own abilities attached to it.  While a Dressphere is
equipped to a character during battle, it will gain AP that will go into
learning abilities.  Please see the next section Abilities for more
information on them.

In this section I will list the Dressphere name, commands associated with the
Dressphere, Abilities associated with the Dressphere, and information on
each ability.

Commands are abilities that show up on the main battle menu.  These commands
are executed quickly and require no MP for use.

Abilities are accessed via a submenu.  For example, to access the Gunner's
ability "Potshot" you must choose the Gunplay command from the main battle
window.  This will open a submenu with all the available abilities you can
use.  These abilities usually take a little longer to cast than a command
takes to execute.  They also require the MP for use.

to them:

- [D20] Special Dresspheres --------------------------------------------------

There are 3 Special Dresspheres in the game, 1 for each character.

SHORT EXPLANATION:
To use them you have to transform into each Dressphere on your Garment Grid
at least once during the same battle.  Once you have done that you can press
L1 to bring up the Garment Grid Window and then press R1 and then "X" to
transform.

LONG EXPLANATION:
Okay. Here's how they work. You don't need to equip them, they are
automatically ready after you get them.

You cannot use them until you change into every dressphere on your garment
grid. For example, say you are using the "First Steps" Garment Grid. There are
6 places on the garment grid that you can put dresspheres. We'll say you have
White Mage, Black Mage, Gun Mage, Thief, Warrior, and Gunner attached to the
garment grid.

Now, you have Yuna in your party equipped with the "First Steps" Garment Grid
and the Gunner dressphere equipped (look on the equip screen in the main
menu).  So Yuna starts every battle as a Gunner. Now you are walking around
and you get into a fight against enemy.

During the battle you use L1 to change Yuna into the White Mage. Then on her
next turn you change her into the Black Mage. Then her next turn you change
her into the Gun Mage, then the Thief, then the Warrior. So now you have
transformed into all 6 dresspheres on that garment grid in the same battle.
Notice I say the SAME battle. Once a battle is over you have to start all
over again.

So now that you have transformed into all the 6 dresspheres you had attached
to the Garment Grid Yuna is using, you are FINALLY able to transform into the
Special Dressphere. (To keep track of where you have gone on the garment grid,
press L1 during battle and look for the blue line on the garment grid).

Now press L1 to bring up the same garment grid window, when it comes up, press
R1. You should notice that on the right of the screen it says something about
Foral Fallal (Yuna's special dressphere). When that is showing, press X to
choose it. The window should go away and you should change into the special
dressphere.

I know it's a lot of work, but they are quite powerful. If you have a Garment
Grid called "Unerring Path", you will notice it only has 2 places for
dresspheres. This is a good grid to use if you want to use Special Dresspheres
a lot because you only have to change dresspheres in battle once and then you
can use the special dressphere.

While in special mode, your character will transform into something with 3
parts and your other 2 characters will be gone.  All three parts are
controlled by you and have very powerful attacks and abilities.

[012] -- Abilites ------------------------------------------------------------

Abilities are all your commands and spells in the game.  Since abilities are
attached to specific dressphere grids, I will list all of them under the
appopriate dresspheres in the section above.  Please see that section for the
actual list of abilities.

Now, as far as how to gain abilities and how to use them, I will go over that
here.

As you progress through the game you will encounter random battles.  During
battle you will perform actions like attacking, using an item, casting a
spell, etc.  Everytime you perform an action, you will gain AP (Action
Points).

Now, you must have a Dressphere equipped in order to gain AP.  Otherwise it 
just goes into oblivion.

As an example we will take the Gunner Dressphere.  It has 16 abilities
attached to it.  If you look at the Dressphere, some of them may not show
up yet bacause they have a prerequisite ability that must be learned first
before it will show up.

Now, you can only choose to learn one ability at a time.  So before a battle
you need to go into the Abilities section of the main menu and go to a 
character.  Then select the Dressphere you currrently have equipped from the
menu on the left and the abilities for that Dressphere will show up.

If you look closely at the abilities you will notice that one of them has a
gold/yellow transparent bar over top of it.  This is the ability you
currently have selected to learn.  To the right of that ability should be a
number like 10/100.  This means you have gained 10 AP through the course of
battling and they have been applied to that ability.  When you get 100 AP
for that ability, you will have learned it and now be able to use it in
battle.

However, to use that ability you must be wearing that Dressphere during the
battle.  If you change to another Dressphere, that ability will no longer
be available until you switch back to that Dressphere.  For more information
on Dresspheres, see the above section.

When you learn an ability during a battle, the game will automatically
switch to another ability for you so you the points won't go into oblivion.
However, you may want to go in an manually select what ability you want
to learn next because it may select something you don't want to waste
time learning yet.

I recommend always manually selecting abilities to learn.

I recommend going in and manually setting the abilities to learn on all the
Dresspheres you have for all your characters, so that when you switch
between Dresspheres during battle, you will automatically start building up
AP for the exact abilities you want to learn.

As you learn abilities for a specific Dressphere, you will notice that the
percentage next to the Dressphere like:  Gunner     10%
That number will rise as you learn more of the abilities.  When you have all
the abilities learned from a Dressphere the percentage next to the
Dressphere name will turn to a "gold crown" image denoting that you have
mastered the Dressphere.  The upside is that you mastered it.  The downside
is that using that Dressphere from here on out means your AP you get from 
battles goes into oblivion while you use it.

Hopefully this helps to explain abilities.  Again, see the Dressphere section
for the complete list of abilities.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[013] -- Gaining AP ----------------------------------------------------------

One of the most common questions I get asked is how do you get AP in the game.
SO I've decided to add this section to explain ALL the ways you can get AP.

There are only 2 ways to get AP in the game:

 1. Defeat an enemy
 2. Perform a valid action in battle

Now, let me explain each of them.

Each enemy and boss in the game has a certain amount of AP.  EVERY normal
enemy in the game has 1 AP.  EVERY oversoul version of a normal enemy has
2 AP.  Most of the bosses in the game only have 1 AP until later in the game
when some of the bosses can have 40 or more AP.

So, let's say we get into an encounter with 3 normal enemies.  We'll call them
Flan's.

Flan 1 - has 1 AP
Flan 2 - has 1 AP
Flan 3 - has 1 AP

Now, Yuna and Rikku do nothing the entire battle.  Paine however decides to
use Trigger Happy to attack Flan 1.  It dies.  Yuna, Rikku, and Paine
IMMEDIATELY gain 1 AP each. Paine however gets 1 more AP IMMEDIATELY because
she performed a valid action (Trigger Happy).  Now, the Paine does the same
thing again to kill the second Flan and again to kill the third Flan.

So overall during the battle, Paine received 6 AP (1 for each enemy that died
and 1 for each action she took).  Yuna and Rikku only got 3 AP each because
they didn't do anything during the battle but were alive when Paine killed
the Flan's.

In otherwords, everytime a fiend dies, any character in the battle who is
still alive, IMMEDIATELY gets 1 AP.  The game doesn't keep track of AP gained
and then give it to you at the end of the battle.  It gives it to you
immediately.  That is why you see "******* Learned" pop up over your
characters head sometimes during battle.  When you learn a new ability, it
will IMMEDIATELY be available to use during that battle.  You don't have to
wait until the next battle to use it.

Again, your character has to be ALIVE to get the AP.

Certain Dresspheres have the command "Attack".  Using this command will never
give you AP.  You will still get the AP for killing an enemy with Attack,
but not for using "Attack".

Now, a valid action doesn't have to be a command like Trigger Happy.  It can
also be a spell or even a command like "Pray".  However it has to actually do
something for it to count as a valid action.

For example, if you use the White Mage command "Pray" to heal your party,
it has to actually heal someone if you want the AP point.  If your entire
party is at full HP, and you use "Pray", you will not get any AP.  However
if just 1 person has less than full HP (even 999/1000 HP) and it heals for
just 1 HP or more, you will get the AP point.

That is why I say a valid action.  The action has to actually do something.

Now, if you fight a boss that has 40 AP, all three characters will get 40 AP
when it dies, plus any AP they got for taking valid actions during battle.
The 40 AP is NOT DIVIDED.  All three characters get the FULL 40 AP.

Hopefully this clears up how you gain AP.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[014] -- Gaining AP Quickly --------------------------------------------------

There are a few ways to gain more AP at a much faster rate.  Throughout the
game there are 4 things you can get to increase the amount of AP you receive.

Here is a list:

 - Key to Success
     Double All (Doubles AP, EXP, Gil, Items)
     To get this accessory you must NOT complete the mission to stop the Ronso
     during chapter 3.  Then you can find it in a treasure chest inside the far
     right room in Guadosalam during chapter 5.  You cannot get 100% completion
     if you get this accessory.

 - Covenant of Growth Garment Grid
     Double AP, Double EXP
     To get this Garment Grid, you must beat Frailea (cactuar game).

 - AP Egg
     Triple AP
     To get this accessory, you must open the Chocobo Ranch Secret Dungeon.
     The accessory is in a treasure chest inside.  See my section "Chocobo
     Ranch Secret Dungeon" in this FAQ for more information.

 - Lure Bracer
     Increases random encounter rate
     You can get this item in chapter 2 by going to the Bikanel Desert Oasis
     and defeating Logos.

These are the only ways to increase the amount of AP you receive in the game.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[015] -- Leveling Up Quickly -------------------------------------------------

This section is intended to give you a helpful way to level up very quickly 
in chapter 5.  Some of the principles can be applied earlier in the game as
well but it is geared towards power-leveling near the end of the game to max
out your characters to level 99 in about one hour.

There are a few ways to gain more EXP at a much faster rate.  Throughout the
game there are 4 things you can get to increase the amount of EXP you receive.

Here is a list:

 - Key to Success
     Double All (Doubles AP, EXP, Gil, Items)
     To get this accessory you must NOT complete the mission to stop the Ronso
     during chapter 3.  Then you can find it in a treasure chest inside the far
     right room in Guadosalam during chapter 5.  You cannot get 100% completion
     if you get this accessory.

 - Covenant of Growth Garment Grid
     Double AP, Double EXP
     To get this Garment Grid, you must beat Frailea (cactuar game).

 - Lady Luck Dressphere
     Double EXP, Gillionaire (Doubles Gil), Double Items
     To get this Dressphere you must win against Shinra during the Sphere
     Break Tournament in Luca during chapter 3.  If you miss it here, you can
     get it by visiting Luca and challenging Shinra (located near locker
     rooms).  You must beat him to get the Dressphere.  However, in chapter 5,
     he is much more difficult to beat.

 - Lure Bracer
     Increases random encounter rate
     You can get this item in chapter 2 by going to the Bikanel Desert Oasis
     and defeating Logos.

These are the only ways to increase the amount of EXP you receive in the game.

Now, the best of the three for gaining EXP is the Lady Luck Dressphere.  This
is because all three characters can have it equipped at once.  If you have the
other two items, use them on top of the Lady Luck Dressphere.

Note: You must learn the ability Double EXP on the Lady Luck Dressphere before
      it begins working.

Equip the Lure Bracer to increase you random encounter rate.

Once you have everything eqipped and ready, simply go to the Farplane Abyss
in chapter 5, and save the game at the save sphere there.  Then jump into the
orange/brown vortex.

Simply walk around and you should get into a random encounter every couple
steps thanks to the Lure Bracer.  The enemies here give huge amounts of 
experience and gil.  The Omega Weapon gives 12000 gil per battle.  If you have
Gillionaire on all three characters you will get 48000 gil per battle!  With
your double EXP you will receive over 10000 EXP per battle!

Most of the enemies here give huge amounts of experience and gil.  They may
be difficult for the first twenty minutes in this area, but just go out and
save every battle or two that you survive.  Eventually they will get easier
and easier until you eventually kill them in a couple of hits.

Also, equip a ribbon on one character if you have it in this area because
one of the enemies is the Great Marlboro that uses "Really Bad Breath"
against you.  By the end you will be taking Great Marlboro's out in 1-2 hits.

Using this method you can get from level 50 to 99 in about 1-2 hours.  You
will also end up with over 3 million gil.

[021] -- Yuna ----------------------------------------------------------------

  Name: Yuna
   Sex: Female
   Age: 19
Height: ??
Weight: ?? lbs

Description
        Yuna is the main character of Final Fantasy X-2.  She was once a high
summoner of Spira.  She followed in the footsteps of her father who was also a
high summoner who defeated Sin many years ago.  Yuna defeated Sin 2 years ago
with the help of her friend Tidus and brought about a calm that has lasted
for the past two years.  However, in the battle with Sin, Tidus was lost due
to the circumstances of what was actually happening.  See Final Fantasy X for
more details.  Yuna is on a quest to find information about Tidus from Final
Fantasy X.  Kimahri found a sphere movie with someone who looked like Tidus
locked in a cell.  This gives her hope that he is still alive so she teams
up with Rikku and Paine on a quest as a Gullwing to find more spheres and
hopefully unlock the mystery of if this person in the movie is indeed Tidus
and more importantly, if he is still alive.  Yuna is also half Al Bhed denoted
by the fact that one of her eyes is blue and one is the green swirl of the Al
Bhed.  No longer a summoner due to the fact that the Fayth's are no more, she
has taken on the inherent job of a gunner.

[027] -- Bosses --------------------------------------------------------------

The [B##] is the search code for bosses ONLY.  Use it to search for specific
bosses in this section.  First I will list the bosses in the game.  Each
boss has its own information about it such as the HP, EXP, Items, etc. 
Additionally, all bosses will have strategies listed on how to defeat them.
Use the search code listed next to a particular boss to jump to that section
for it or simply scroll down to it.

Key:
        HP    = Hit/Health Points of the enemy
        Weak  = Weaknesses to be exploited
        EXP   = Experience received after battle
        Rare  = Rare item received from stealing (more difficult to steal)
        Item  = Standard item received from stealing
        Drop  = Items received after battle
        Gil   = Amount of Gil received after battle


Here is a list of the bosses in the game and strategies for each:

 Normal Drop: Tetra Band
   Rare Drop: Tetra Band
 Dropped Gil: 2000
Pilfered Gil: 4000

Strategy:
        This battle is very easy considering we just came from the Magus
Sisters.  Anima is very slow and very weak (in contrast to the Anima from
Final Fantasy X).    When he uses his Pain attack it does around 500-1000
damage to one character.  It might also cause that character to not be able
to act in the battle.  If this happens just toss a Remedy or Esuna spell on
that character to fix it.

Anima's Oblivion attack is just as cool as we remember, however, it is
ridiculously weak.  Maybe 1000 damage to all your characters.  Just keep
attacking Anima and it will go down easily.  Heal your characters when
needed.

 Dropped Gil: 1000
Pilfered Gil: 2200

Strategy:
        This boss can cause you some problems.  The aeon Bahamut has some very
damaging spells.  Speed is the key to this battle.  Bahamut has a standard
punch attack that doesn't do much, however his Impulse attack does around
300-400 damage to all your characters.  Eventually Bahamut will start a
countdown starting at 5.  If he reaches 0 before you kill him, Bahamut will
unleash his Mega-Flare attack that will pretty much kill you.  So take him
down quick.  Now don't get too scared, using the strategy below, I took him
down when he was on 4.

A good strategy is to use two gunners and one white mage during this boss
fight.  Just keep hitting Trigger Happy with the two gunners and then use
Pray every round with the White Mage.  Revive and heal when needed.  You
shouldn't have any problems with this mini-boss.

Strategy:
        Baralai is extremely simple.  Just a token battle really.  He has a
few decent attacks like an explosive gun attack, however he should be simple.
He is very fast and will get a lot more attacks in than you are probably used
to.  A good strategy is to use two gunners and one white mage during this boss
fight.  Just keep hitting Trigger Happy with the two gunners and then use Pray
every round with the White Mage.  Revive and heal when needed.  You shouldn't
have any problems with this boss.

Strategy:
        This boss is quite easy.  He looks like a large crab/spider-like
creature.  Just attack with each character.  Don't forget to steal from him
once and pilfer gil from him once.  Heal up with potions when needed.  He will
go down quickly.

Strategy:
        This mini-boss basically just uses third level Black Magic spells like
Thundaga, Blizzaga, etc.  A good strategy is to use two gunners and one white
mage during this boss fight.  Just keep hitting Trigger Happy with the two
gunners and then use Pray every round with the White Mage.  Revive and heal
when needed.  You shouldn't have any problems with this mini-boss.

Strategy:
        This boss is not too difficult however it does have an attack that
can do around 300-400 damage to all your characters so keep you HP up.  If
you have a White Mage, just use a cure spell every round for all characters
(by pressing right when selecting target) or use Pray.  Attack with the other
characters.  The Warrior spell "Excalibur" did 1300 holy damage to the boss
for me so if you have that use it.

Name: Humbaba
  HP: 27772
  MP: 785
Weak: ??
 EXP: 1800

Normal Steal: Hi-Potion x2
  Rare Steal: Ether
 Normal Drop: Hi-Potion x4
   Rare Drop: NulShock Ring
 Dropped Gil: 550
Pilfered Gil: 1800

Strategy:
        This battle can be quite difficult.  Humbaba uses Mighty Guard almost
immediately to reduce the damage you can inflict.  This is also a chance to
get this ability for your Gun Mage if you missed it earlier in the game.  Now
Humbaba uses an attack called Uppercut that does about 1500-2000 damage to
one character quite often.  Humbaba also use Thundaga that does about 800 to
all your characters.  His Tyrant Tail attacj does about 800-1200 damage to
all characters as well.

Now, when you defeat Humbaba he'll drop a final attack on you called Meteor
that can do 1500 to all though it randomly hits your characters so it could
kill one of them and barily touch another.  But it's safe to say that about
1500 damage on average will inflict them all.  That way as long as all three
of your characters are above that then you should easily survive.

Now, if you are using a White Mage then cast Curaga with that character on
all three characters every round.  I however used Paine instead with a
maxed out Trainer Dressphere.  That way I could use HP Flurry every round
for only 5 MP each time.  HP Flurry heals all three of my characters for
about 1700 each.

Attack with the other characters and it will eventually go down.  Make sure
you don't use Thunder attacks because Humbaba absorbs them.  Just be sure to
heal every round.  It is the key to this battle.  Be patient and Humbaba will
go down.

Strategy:
        This battle should be extremely easy considering we've just come from
battling Bahamut and Yojimbo.  Ifrit's Meteor attack does about 500 damage
to one character.

Just attack Ifrit until it goes down.  It should be very easy.

 Normal Drop: Soul of Thamasa
   Rare Drop: Soul of Thamasa
 Dropped Gil: 1800
Pilfered Gil: 3000

Strategy:
        This battle shouldn't be too difficult.  Just be careful because
Ixion's Aerospark does around 1200 damage to one character.  Ixion's normal
attacks does around 150 damage to one character.  Ixion also Recharges once
in a while that gives it 200 HP/MP back.  The only thing to really look out
for is Ixion's "Thor's Hammer" attack that will do around 1000 damage to
all your characters.  So keep yourself at around full health.

If you are using Paine as a trainer, her HP Flurry is bery useful.  Just
continue attacking Ixion Ifrit until it goes down.  It shouldn't be too
difficult.

 Dropped Gil: 0, 1000, 1000
Pilfered Gil: 0, 3000, 3000

Strategy:
        This battle can be somewhat difficult.  Mostly because the Magus
Sisters are fairly quick and difficult to hit.  I suggest using two Gunners
and a White Mage or Paine as a Trainer so she can use HP Flurry every round.
Mindy will use her Passado attack that will take one of your characters down
to near death.  Sandy will user her Razzia attack that barely does anything
to one character (this is suprising since it was so powerful in Final Fantasy
X).  Cindy will cast Not So Mighty Guard on her and the other two Magus
Sisters, as well as perform her attack, Camisade.  Camisade doesn't do much
damage, around 500 each time, however it takes about two minutes for her to
do it because she does it like 5 times in a row to random characters.

Take Cindy out first because she is the defensive juggernaut of the group and
because her Camisade is just annoying.  Then take out Mindy to stop her
devastating Passado attack.  Lastly, focus on Sandy since she basically does
nothing.

Strategy:
        This mini-boss has a few decent attacks like Demi that cuts your HP by
1/4.  However the only real dangerous spell is its instant K.O. spell that
kills one character instantly.  So watch out for that and revive your character
if they die from it.  A good strategy is to use two gunners and one white mage
during this boss fight.  Just keep hitting Trigger Happy with the two gunners
and then use Pray every round with the White Mage.  Revive and heal when
needed.  You shouldn't have any problems with this mini-boss.

Strategy:
        This battle is very easy.  Shiva has a high evade so use attacks
with high accuracy.  I would use a Gunner's Trigger Happy attack to take her
out quickly.  She is also vulnerable to fire attacks.

Name: Shuyin
  HP: ??
  MP: ??
Weak: ??
 EXP: ??

Strategy:
        This battle is not quite the same token battle like the end of Final
Fantasy X.  It is similar but you actually have the chance of dying so don't
take this battle lightly.  Shuyin attacks with the same overdrives that Tidus
had in Final Fantasy X.  That's right, you'll get Blitz Ace dropped on you
and it will almost certainly kill one of your characters.  Spiral Cut and
Slice and Dice aren't too bad however.  The name of them has changed to Hit
& Run and Spin Cut but they are the same moves.  I'm not sure about Energy
Rain because I've never seen him do it.  I kill him too quickly.

One attack that he does that is new is the "Terror of Zanarkand" that does
around 2500 damage to one character.

I used 2 Gunners and one White Mage for this battle.  I equipped my White Mage
with accessories that doubled her HP/MP so she could survive easier and
wouldn't run out of MP.

Cast Protect and Shell on your party with the White Mage right away and then
use her for healing the rest of the time.

Use your two gunners to take him out quickly using Trigger Happy and he'll go
down without too much effort.

Strategy:
        This battle should be extremely easy considering we've just come from
battling Bahamut and Yojimbo.  Valefor's Energy Ray attack does about 300
damage to all and it's regular attack does about 300 to one character.

Just attack Valefor until it goes down.  It should be very easy.

Strategy:
        This battle is extremely easy.  Using my strategy, I never even got
attacked once.

I used 2 Gunners and one White Mage for this battle.  I equipped my White Mage
with accessories that doubled her HP/MP so she could survive easier and
wouldn't run out of MP.

Cast Protect and Shell on your party with the White Mage right away and then
use her for healing the rest of the time.

Use your two gunners to attack the Left and Right Bulwarks with Trigger Happy.
It should only take one Trigger Happy for each, so you can destroy them both
in one round.  Then focus all your attacks on the Core.  It will eventually
revive the Bulwarks.  Take them out quickly again and focus on the Core again.
It should go down fairly quickly.

Strategy:
        This battle is somewhat easy but you can die.  Before you can attack
the Head, you must destroy the Left and Right Redoubts.  

I used 2 Gunners and one White Mage for this battle.  I equipped my White Mage
with accessories that doubled her HP/MP so she could survive easier and
wouldn't run out of MP.

Cast Protect and Shell on your party with the White Mage right away and then
use her for healing the rest of the time.

Use your two gunners to take out the Left and Right Redoubts with Trigger
Happy. The Head casts "Acta Est Fabula" that revives the Redoubts, so when it
does that, take them out again and return focus to the Head.  It also has an
attack called "Necro...(something)" that does about 1000 damage to all your
characters.  It also uses "Lacrimosa" that does minor damage and steals MP.

It should only take one Trigger Happy for each, so you can destroy them both
in one round.  Then focus all your attacks on the Head.  There is a time
limit on this battle so if you mess around too long Vegnagun will fire and
you will lose.  So get moving!

Strategy:
        This battle is extremely easy if you ignore the Node's, but extremely
difficult if you want to take out the Node's.  The Node's are very difficult
to take out.  So ignore the Node's and focus all attacks on the leg/foot.

I used 2 Gunners and one White Mage for this battle.  I equipped my White Mage
with accessories that doubled her HP/MP so she could survive easier and
wouldn't run out of MP.

Cast Protect and Shell on your party with the White Mage right away and then
use her for healing the rest of the time.

Use your two gunners to attack the leg/foot every round with Trigger Happy.
It should go down fairly quickly.

Strategy:
        This battle is probably the hardest part of the end battle.  The tail
will use a laser attack that does around 1000-1500 damage to one character.
This is easy enough to fix, however its main attack is called "Noli Me...
(something)" and it does around 1500 damage to all your characters.  So keep
yourself healed up at all times.

I used 2 Gunners and one White Mage for this battle.  I equipped my White Mage
with accessories that doubled her HP/MP so she could survive easier and
wouldn't run out of MP.

Cast Protect and Shell on your party with the White Mage right away and then

        This boss is not as difficult as the last boss however it does have
an attack called "Blast Punch" that does over half damage to a single
character.  It also has the familiar "Haymaker" attack that is not as
powerful.  If you have a White Mage, just use a cure spell every round for
all characters (by pressing right when selecting target) or use Pray.  Attack
with the other characters.

it's Flame Breath does around 400-500 to all.  Just make sure you steal the 
Subliminator from it before you kill it.

[028] -- Optional Bosses -----------------------------------------------------

The [O##] is the search code for optional bosses ONLY.  Use it to search for
specific optional bosses in this section.  First I will list the optional
bosses in the game.  Each optional boss has its own information about it such
as the HP, EXP, Items, etc.  Additionally, all optional bosses will have
strategies listed on how to defeat them.  Use the search code listed next to
a particular optional boss to jump to that section for it or simply scroll
down to it.

Key:
        HP    = Hit/Health Points of the enemy
        Weak  = Weaknesses to be exploited
        EXP   = Experience received after battle
        Rare  = Rare item received from stealing (more difficult to steal)
        Item  = Standard item received from stealing
        Drop  = Items received after battle
        Gil   = Amount of Gil received after battle

- [O01] -----------------------------------------

Name: Angra Mainyu, Tawrich, Zarich
  HP: 333444, 5540, 5540
  MP: 9999, 9999, 9999
 EXP: 5000, 0, 0

Normal Steal: Ribbon, None, None
  Rare Steal: Ribbon, None, None
 Normal Drop: Megalixer, None, None
   Rare Drop: Megalixer, None, None
 Dropped Gil: 5000, 0, 0
Pilfered Gil: 7500, 0, 0

Strategy:
        This battle is one of the most difficult in the game.  It is an
optional battle if you aren't going for 100%.  I recommend being at level 70
or higher before attempting Angra Mainyu.  I know you can beat him at low
levels around 40, however, I don't see the point.  See my section on Leveling
Up Quickly if you want to level up fast.

There are many different strategies out there.  Some better, some worse.  I 
will give the strategy that I used that worked very well for me.  I WILL NOT
be using Dark Knights or Darkness attacks in my strategy.  I get sick of
hearing everyone say, just use Darkness this and Darkness that on EVERY single
boss.  It's cheap if you ask me and there is more to the game than Darkness
people!!

Here is the lineup:

 - Berserker
 - Samurai
 - Alchemist

You don't have to have these maxed out, but it helps!

There are 3 parts to Angra Mainyu.  Angra Mainyu, Tawrich, and Zarich.
Tawrich is immune to magic attacks and Zarich is immune to physical attacks.

Here are the attacks they can and will use if alive:

-- Angra Mainyu --

 - Curaga            
     Heals for around 2000-2500
 - Demi
     Cuts all your characters HP by 1/4
 - Bio
     Poisons one character
 - Flare
     Does around 9999 damage to one character
 - Full-Life
     Revives Tawrich or Zarich
 - Osmose
     Steals MP
 - Perdition's Flame
     This is a major attack that can kill your entire party (can only use when
     Tawrich and Zarich are both alive)


-- Tawrich --

 - Attack
     Minimal damage to one character
 - Bloody Breath
     Minimal damage to all characters but inflicts them all with Confusion,
     Darkness, Poison, and Silence.


-- Zarich --

 - Blizzaga
     Magic damage to one character
 - Firaga
     Magic damage to one character
 - Glimmer of Despair
     Lowers stats and drains MP from all characters
 - Thundaga
     Magic damage to one character


Now I will explain why I chose the Samurai, Berserker, and Alchemist.  If you
don't have the abilities listed, the I would suggest getting them before you
fight Angra Mainyu.

The Samurai has several things I liked for this battle:
 - Attack
   The Samurai has good power and can deal out heavy damage with regular
   attacks
 - Fingersnap
   Use to revert stats back to normal periodically
 - Clean Slate
   Use to remedy effects and restore HP
 - SOS Critical
   Does heavy damage at low HP levels
 - No Fear
   Casts Shell and Protect on the user

The Berserker has several things I liked for this battle:
 - Attack
   The Berserker has huge power and can easily dish out 9999 damage
 - Howl
   Doubles user's max HP
 - Auto-Regen
   Free Regen!
 - Counterattack
   Free hits!
 - Evade & Counter
   Evades physical attacks and counters

The Alchemist has several things I liked for this battle:
 - Mix
   Tons of attacks and curative spells available when needed
 - Stash
   Free Mega-Potions, X-Potions, Mega Phoenix's, Ethers, and Elixers!
 - No MP Required
   Since the alchemist doesn't use MP for her Stash command, you can restore
   huge amounts of health to all characters even with 0 MP.  Remember, Angra
   Mainyu and Zarich constantly bring your MP down to 0 during the fight.


As far as equipment goes, equip a Moon Bracer (Auto-Shell) and a Shining
Bracer (Auto-Protect) on your Alchemist.  She is the one we need to keep
alive.  The Moon Bracer will help guard against Flare and magic attacks, and
the Shining Bracer will help guard against physical attacks and Perdition's
Flame.

Equip a Champion Belt (STR+40, DEF+40) and Kaiser Knuckles (STR+50) on the
Berserker.  Equip Hyper Wrist (STR+30) and Diamond Gloves (DEF+40) on the
Samurai.  If you have better equipment like the Iron Duke, Adamantite, or
Catnip, then by all means, equip them instead.  I just listed the equipment
you would have so far if you followed my FAQ.  We won't be getting those
until later.

So now that you have the setup, let's talk about the battle.

The key to this battle is keeping either Tawrich or Zarich alive.  You don't
need to get rid of them both!  You can if you want to however.  Angra Mainyu
will keep reviving them peiodically though.

We will focus on killing Tawrich and IGNORING Zarich.  Since we don't have
a particularly magical party, we will focus on Tawrich.  Zarich doesn't do
much except Flare.  It will kill your Samurai if it hits her.  You can just
revive her with a Phoenix Down or a "free" Mega Phoenix.

When the battle starts, have your Berserker use "No Fear" on herself.  This
will give her Shell and Protect.  So now you have two characters with Shell
and Protect on them.  The only one you really have to worry about dying now
is your Samurai.

*Note: THAT DOESN'T MEAN THE OTHERS WON'T DIE!!

Shell and Protect will help, but there is always a chance they could get
killed anyway depending on their HP.

With your Samurai, attack Tawrich.  It should only take one hit to kill it.
If you are weaker, then take it out the next turn.

With your Alchemist, use a Mega-Potion EVERY TURN!!  If someone dies, revive
them and return to using the Mega-Potion.   If you are feeling good about
your health you can sneak an attack in or a Mix command to do some damage
to Angra Mainyu.

When it is your Berserker's turn again, use Howl to double your max HP.  From
then on, simply attack Angra Mainyu.  If it revives Tawrich, attack it quickly
to kill it and then return to attacking Angra Mainyu.

Use the Samurai's Fingersnap periodically to revert your stats back to normal
if you notice your characters are doing weak damage.

If by chance you don't kill Tawrich quickly enough, it will use Bloody Breath.
This attack can kill you.  Use the Samurai's Clean Slate, the Alchemist's
Remedy Stash, or have the Berserker use a Remedy item to remove the status
effects.

If you wait to long, Perdition's Flame will come out and devastate you even
if you kill Tawrich.  This is because Angra Mainyu will start casting when
Tawrich and Zarich are still alive.  So once you kill one of them, it will be
too late.  Angra Mainyu will still finish the cast and use it.

If this happens, prey that your Protect holds and keeps one of your characters
at the least alive.  Then revive them quickly and get your health back up.

This will be a tough battle, but eventually you will defeat Angra Mainyu.

Name: Anything Eater

Normal Steal: Mega-Potion
  Rare Steal: Mega-Potion x2
 Normal Drop: Power Gloves
   Rare Drop: Power Gloves
 Dropped Gil: 1500
Pilfered Gil: 3000

Strategy:
        This battle isn't too difficult.  Just use physical attacks against
him.  Do not use magic, it will be reflected.  All of Anything Eater's attacks
only damage one character, so just revive/heal them when needed and attack
with the others.  He'll go down in no time at all.

 Dropped Gil: 800
Pilfered Gil: 2200

Strategy:
        This battle isn't too difficult.  He's similar to Boris that you
fought early on in the game, however with higher HP.  Just attack and heal
and he will go down easy enough.

Strategy:
        This battle is very easy considering you have Yuna, Rikku, and
Paine in your party now.  Just use whatever combination you normally
like and take him out like any other enemy.

If you feel like it, try switching to the Thief dressphere to swipe the
Nature's Lore.

Name: Black Elemental
  HP: 9999
  MP: 2380
 EXP: 770

Normal Steal: Ether
  Rare Steal: Rune Bracer
 Normal Drop: Mana Tonic
   Rare Drop: Tetra Gloves
 Dropped Gil: 380
Pilfered Gil: 500

Strategy:
        There are several ways to defeat this enemy.  Black Elemental will
cast Ultima that can do 9999 damage to all of your party.  So to survive
in a fight, you will have to have over 9999 HP on your character.  You 
can't reflect Ultima.  Your other alternative is to do 9999 damage against
Black Elemental before it can cast Ultima.

There are also several "cheap" ways to defeat it:

 - Berserker
      Eject
 - Dark Knight
      with 5000+ MAX HP + Charon = 9999 damage
 - Lady Luck
      Bribe with 60,000 gil
      Get 777 using Random Reels
 - Samurai
      Spare Change
      Zantetsu
 - Thief
      Steal Will
 - Trainer

      Kogoro Strike (Yuna)
 - Drain all of its MP using 3 Soul Springs

 Normal Drop: Wall Ring
   Rare Drop: Wall Ring

Strategy:
        This boss is so simple I can hardly offer a strategy other than
attack it.  If you have a White Mage, just use a cure spell every round for
all characters (by pressing right when selecting target) or use Pray.  Attack
with the other characters.

 EXP: 6000

Normal Steal: Ether
  Rare Steal: Ether x2
 Normal Drop: Blessed Gem
   Rare Drop: Crystal Gloves
 Dropped Gil: 1200
Pilfered Gil: 2400

Strategy:
        This battle is very easy.  Concherer does insane amounts of damage,
however, all his attacks only damage one character.  So it is easy to stay
alive.  This battle could take a long time to finish since he has high
defense.

I used a Berserker, Samurai, and an Alchemist for this battle. Equip a
Champion Belt (STR+40, DEF+40) and Kaiser Knuckles (STR+50) on the Berserker.
Equip Hyper Wrist (STR+30) and Catnip on the Samurai.

Use the Alchemist to revive the other characters.  If she dies, have another
character use a phoenix down on her.

Simply attack for a long time and revive when needed and you will defeat him.

Strategy:
        This battle shouldn't be very easy.  This is only the initial level
of the experiment so it will be easy.  It's main attack only does about
700-800 damage to one of your characters.

 Normal Drop: Shining Bracer, Remedy
   Rare Drop: Shining Bracer, Remedy x2
 Dropped Gil: 90, 20
Pilfered Gil: 130, 60

Strategy:
        Depending on your answers earlier in the game to the Ronso your trust
level with the Ronso will be either high or low.  If the trust is low then
Garik will have 2 Ronso Youth with him.  Garik himself will also be stronger
and will cast Mighty Guard.  If your trust is high, Garik will be weaker and
will not use Mighty Guard.  He will also only have 1 Ronso Youth with him.

This battle is hardly a battle.  Just attack and heal.  Not much strategy
needed here.  Just make sure you steal the items from them before you kill
them off.

I went into this battle at level 46 with all three of my characters using the
Trainer Dressphere.  I had to try not to kill them in order to steal the items
from them.

Name: Humbaba
  HP: 27772
  MP: 785
Weak: ??
 EXP: 1800

Normal Steal: Hi-Potion x2
  Rare Steal: Ether
 Normal Drop: Hi-Potion x4
   Rare Drop: NulShock Ring
 Dropped Gil: 550
Pilfered Gil: 1800

Strategy:
        This battle can be quite difficult.  Humbaba uses Mighty Guard almost
immediately to reduce the damage you can inflict.  This is also a chance to
get this ability for your Gun Mage if you missed it earlier in the game.  Now
Humbaba uses an attack called Uppercut that does about 1500-2000 damage to
one character quite often.  Humbaba also use Thundaga that does about 800 to
all your characters.  His Tyrant Tail attacj does about 800-1200 damage to
all characters as well.

Now, when you defeat Humbaba he'll drop a final attack on you called Meteor
that can do 1500 to all though it randomly hits your characters so it could
kill one of them and barily touch another.  But it's safe to say that about
1500 damage on average will inflict them all.  That way as long as all three
of your characters are above that then you should easily survive.

Now, if you are using a White Mage then cast Curaga with that character on
all three characters every round.  I however used Paine instead with a
maxed out Trainer Dressphere.  That way I could use HP Flurry every round
for only 5 MP each time.  HP Flurry heals all three of my characters for
about 1700 each.

Attack with the other characters and it will eventually go down.  Make sure
you don't use Thunder attacks because Humbaba absorbs them.  Just be sure to
heal every round.  It is the key to this battle.  Be patient and Humbaba will
go down.

  Rare Steal: Stamina Tonic x2, None
 Normal Drop: Stamina Tonic, None
   Rare Drop: Rabite's Foot, None
 Dropped Gil: 0, 120
Pilfered Gil: 0, 180

Strategy:
        This battle isn't too difficult unless you get the misfortune of
the Jumbo Cactuar going into oversoul mode.  The Jumbo Cactuar just sits there
doing nothing except casting Hastega on itself and the smaller cactuars.  So
ignore it and focus on killing the smaller cactuars first.

I would recommend using 1 or 2 gunners for this battle.  They can easily kill
the smaller cactuars in one Trigger Happy.  Use Trigger Happy against them
because their evasion is so high that you can hardly hit them otherwise.

After they are gone take out the Jumbo Cactuar quickly.  You shouldn't have
any trouble with this battle.  If the Jumbo Cactuar goes into oversoul form
then it will start using high level Black Magic spells along with Flare so
you could have problems then.  Just hope that doesn't happen.

The rare drop for this battle is a Rabite's foot.  Try to get this item if
you can because it gives you Luck +100 which is an excellent accessory.

 Normal Drop: Crystal Bangle
   Rare Drop: Crystal Bangle
 Dropped Gil: 10000
Pilfered Gil: 2500

Strategy:
        This battle can be quite difficult if you don't know what you are
doing or if you didn't do things correctly earlier in the game.  Machina
Panzer is accompanied by a Watcher-A, Watcher-S, and Watcher-R.  The Watcher-A
will lock out attacks, Watcher-S locks out special attacks, and Watcher-R
locks out recovery abilities.  They will only lock out abilities that they
saw you use previously in battles around Spira.  If you did a good job of
taking them out first with normal attacks then you shouldn't have any problems
with this boss.  If you didn't then you could be in trouble.

Now Machina Panzer's attacks aren't particularly devastating.  It's normal
attack does around 250 damage to one character, it's Gatling Gun does about
200 damage to all characters, and it's Sorcery Ray does around 600 damage to
all characters.  Sometimes Sorcery Ray will hit for double that however for
some reason (so around 1200).

First of all, take out the Watcher's quickly.  After they are all defeated,
focus all your attacks on the main Machina Panzer boss.  I found this battle
very simple.  My characters were at level 58 for this battle.

 Dropped Gil: 200
Pilfered Gil: 300

Strategy:
        This battle isn't too difficult, however since Yuna is alone you
won't have anyone to revive her if you die.  I would suggest using Yuna
as a Trainer.  This way you have good attacking capability and good
healing ability as well.  Just keep attacking with Kogoro and use Kogoro
Cure when your HP gets low. 

If you feel like it, try switching to the Thief dressphere to swipe the
Sword Lore.

Strategy:
        This boss can be extremely difficult to defeat depending on what
level you are at.  The aeon Yojimbo inflicts poison often.  While this is
not particularly devastating by itself, it kills you instantly when your
HP is only at 1.  We'll get to that in a second.  First, make sure you
equip a Ribbon, Glass Buckle, or some other poisonproof accessory on each
character so that they won't get poisoned.  Trust me, you'll need it.

Now, all but one of Yojimbo and Daigoro's (his pet dog) attacks will be
fairly weak.  However his ultimate attack is called Zanmato.  It
automatically reduces all three of you characters HP and MP to 1.  Now you
can easily tell when Yojimbo is about to perform this move because before
he does it he will put his hand up in front of his face, covering it
partially.  When you see this, stop whatever you are doing and start
throwing Hi-Potions, healing spells, etc. at everyone.  If you have a White
Mage in your party I would throw the healing items and ethers at her with
the other two characters and use her to cast Curaga on all three characters.

If Daigoro manages to jump in and kill one of your characters before they
are healed (which he often annoyingly does), quickly toss a Phoenix Down
at them to revive them.  You don't need to be anywhere near full health
at any time during this battle.  It's useless.  Just stay at a decent level
so as not to get killed by the weaker attacks.

Now, you could also throw a Mega Phoenix at your party when you see Yojimbo
is about to perform Zanmato, but I prefer to save such items.

Also, if you are using a White Mage in your party, you can cast Regen on
everyone before your MP is reduced to try and help them from getting killed by
Daigoro.

White Mage's are weak during this battle since their MP gets reduced to 1 every
few moves, so by the time you use and Ether to build it up, it's quickly back
down to 1.

A good strategy is to use two or three gunners or two gunners and an alchemist,
warrior, etc.  Just keep hitting Trigger Happy with the gunners.

[100] XII. Walkthrough
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
This is the walkthrough section of this FAQ.  I will attempt to avoid spoiling
the game when I can.  The game is broken down into several chapters, however
each chapter contains multiple missions.  Since this game is designed to be
completely non-linear, you start the game with the ability to go anywhere you
want.  Certain places/events will trigger the advancement of the story.  If
you simply go from point A to point B in the game to advance the story, you
will miss out on a lot of great content.  This section will concentrate on
going full out in the game.  If you want to just fly through the game, then
read the short walkthrough section.  If it is your intent to get 100%
completion, consult the 100% Completion Guide section as you are going through
this section.  I will also list the completion percentages in this section as
well.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[101] Introduction
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[102] -- Luca ----------------------------------------------------------------

The game begins with a movie (FMV) of Yuna on-stage and singing up a storm.
After the movie, you will have control of Rikku and Paine.  You will be
fighting against Yuna and 2 other goons.  Now this fight can seem a bit
chaotic since you don't really know much about the controls or what is going
on.  Also, it will automatically be in "active" time mode so the enemies will
continue to attack you while you are muddling around through the menus trying
to figure out what action to take.  To make it easy, just hit attack
repeatedly to win the battle.  Don't worry, it's quite simple.

Once the battle is over, you will have control of Rikku and you need to chase
after Yuna.  However, first go into the menu and go to the options page to
adjust the settings the way you want them.  I would suggest setting the
ATB to "wait" mode.  This will set it up so that enemies will not attack you
while you are in the menus.  They will however still attack you even if it is
your turn if you are on the top level of the menu (where it says attack, item,
etc.).  But once you go down one level in the menu, it pauses everything else.
This is an easier mode to start out with.  I would also recommend turning the
speed on the ATB to the slowest setting for now until you get comfortable
with battling.  Once you get a grip on it, crank it up to the fastest to
speed up battles.  You can also turn on the rumble feature if you want.

Now, Follow the path around and at the first fork on the left that you
can actually take there will be a moogle cowering near some crates.  If you
touch it you will get full health and magic.  This will help if you want to
fight a few random battles and then heal before continuing so you can get used
to the battle controls.

Once you are ready, continue following the path around and you will trigger 
the next event.

Logos and Ormi will attack you and Yuna will join the fight brandishing dual
handguns.  Take them out easily and another event will trigger.

You will then find out that the Yuna who was singing and the Yuna you have
been chasing was an imposter by the name of Leblanc.  She apparantly stole
Yuna's Garment Grid.  She gives it back and attacks you.

During the battle press L1 to access the Garment Grid.  Move the cursor to the
purple sphere and press the confirm button.  Yuna will transform.  Then attack
until it is Yuna's turn again.  when it is Yuna's turn use the "Darkness
Dance" and then attack with the others.  Repeat this and eventually the battle
will be won.

** Mission Complete! **

You will then be presented with your first after battle screen displaying the
experience, gil, and items you received from the battle.  Get used to these,
you will be seeing quite a few of them.  Once you are finished reviewing what
you got, press X to continue.  This concludes the introduction.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[103] Chapter 1.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[104] -- Celsius -------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 1 starts onboard the airship Celsius.  After a brief sequence you will
have control of Yuna.  Talk to Shinra sitting on the right side of the bridge
in front of a computer screen.  Shinra is the source for a wealth of
information.  Don't skip this part, talk to him and read everything that he
has for you.  

The main things he offers are:
 - Shinra's Guide to Everything
 - Treasure Spheres
 - Shinra's Bestiary
 - Shinra's Dossiers

Read everything.  Trust me.  After you have read the Garment Grid tutorial,
you will receive the Vanguard Garment Grid.  Once you get this, equip it and
perform and auto allocate on the dresspheres you have.

Also, if you look at the treasure spheres, you will be able to watch the 
sphere Kimahri found at Mt. Gagazet containing the footage of a person who
looks like Tidus trapped in a cage.

Once you are done perusing, talk to the rest of the people on the bridge.
Buddy will give you an Al Bhed Primer, and brother will give you three Al
Bhed Primers.

Al Bhed Primers help you learn the Al Bhed language.  There are 26 of them in
the game.  After you get them all you will understand what everyone is saying
in Al Bhed.  Once you have beaten the game you can play through a new game and
keep all the Primers with you so you can understand what all the Al Bhed were
saying in the beginning of the game.  When you receive an Al Bhed Primer the
primer itself will be random.  So the first primer you get might be I, IV, X,
XXI, or any other number.

After you are finished on the bridge, leave and you will find a save sphere
just outside the door.  When you touch a save sphere, it will automatically
fill your health and magic.  You can save the game here and when you are at
a save sphere anywhere in Spira and not on the airship, it will also give
you the option of going back to the airship.  One thing to keep in mind
however is that you will be dropped off by the airship at the same
predefined location as always and not necessarily at the save sphere you
just left.  For example, there are multiple save spheres in Luca, however 
the airship always drops you in the same place at the save sphere near the
Mi'ihen Highroad no matter which save sphere you used to return to the
airship.

Now explore the ship.  Go to the elevator.  The locations the elevator can
take you to are:

 - Deck
 - Bridge
 - Cabin
 - Engine Room

Go to the Engine Room and grab the Phoenix Down, Ether, Potion x4, and
Remedy x3 from the 4 treasure chests.  Then head back to the elevator and go
to the Cabin.  You can talk to the Barkeep to see the store or to rest.  When
you are ready, select "rest" to advance the story.

After resting, head back to the Bridge.  You will get a brief scene and then
you will be off to the Mt. Gagazet Ruins to find the sphere Buddy detected
there.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[105] -- Mt. Gagazet Ruins ---------------------------------------------------

At Mt. Gagazet Ruins, you will be high up on a ledge.  Follow Rikku and Paine
and hold the "O" button on your controller down to jump gaps and climb
ledges.  Fall down when it gives you the hint to do so and grab the Yellow
Ring from the treasure chest.  Then climb back up the ledge on the left.  Then
this time jump across.

Now head down the steps to the save sphere and save.  You can walk around and
fight a little here if you want to.  This could be a good time to try and
learn how to time your attacks to chain them together.  When you are ready
examine the button on the wall to operate the elevator, but be warned, it is 
a one way trip.  You will be cut-off from the save sphere.

At the bottom follow the path down and around to the left and grab the
treasure chest containing an Elixer.  Then head back down and around to the
right and up a little to where you can see some grey stone pillars.  Climb up
near there to the right.  Keep going up and you will trigger another sequence
with Leblanc and her two goons.  They will attack.  Take them out easily.

After the battle you will find out that Leblanc is a sphere hunter as well and
she is after the sphere you are here to get.  They will take off running and
you will see a 6 minute timer at the top right of your screen begin counting
down.  The objective is to try and reach the top before the timer runs out.

This is not that big of a deal.  If you don't reach the top quickly enough,
you will just miss out on a Muscle Belt.  A decent item but not great.  You
won't die or anything.  It's up to you how fast you want to go.

Now, start running after them and you will see in the background that they go
inside a door.  Follow the path around and go up the first ledge near the
first ramp/pillar and then go left and down instead of going up the second
ramp/pillar.  This will take you to the entrance they went in.  Logos will hop
out and some goons will atack you.  Take them out and head inside.  Once 
inside, follow the corridor and fall down into the first pit to grab a White
Ring from the chest.  climb back up and continue on.  If you want, just before
the first pit there is a sidequest.  To the left and right is a button.
You have to climb up to get them.  After you press each one it will lower a
platform up ahead.

Now jump across that first pit and continue on until you hit the fork in the
hallway.  If you hit the switch earlier, take the right fork and jump across 
and head outside to grab the item from the chest.  Then head back inside,
back across and to the fork in the road.  This time head up toward the red
arrow in the mini-map (If you don't have a mini-map then you can turn it on
in the options menu).

When you come outside, head left along the path until you reach Ormi.  A
battle with some goons takes place.  Knock them off and head across the little
bridge.  Hold "O" to climb up the small piller on the right.  Then head to the
right all the way around to grab a Star Pendant from the chest.  Then head
back to the left to where you will see a broken pillar just off to the right
by itself with a ramp going up off of it.  Hold "O" to jump over to it and
follow the ramp up.

At this point the timer stops.  Save the game.  If you made it before the
timer reached zero then you will be able to get the item in the chest and you
will see a little sequence with Leblanc, Ormi, and Logos.  Head on up and grab
the Muscle Belt from the chest where Leblanc and the others are.

Now, prepare yourself for a Boss battle.  It is quite simple but I wanted to
warn you just in case.  Head up the next ramp when you are ready.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Boris
  HP: 480
  MP: 0
Weak: ??
 EXP: 26

Normal Steal: Remedy
  Rare Steal: Remedy x2
 Normal Drop: Star Pendant
   Rare Drop: Star Pendant
 Dropped Gil: 300
Pilfered Gil: 700

Strategy:
        This boss is quite easy.  He looks like a large crab/spider-like
creature.  Just attack with each character.  Don't forget to steal from him
once and pilfer gil from him once.  Heal up with potions when needed.  He will
go down quickly.

Special Items Received:

        Black Mage Dressphere (You will get this item from the treasure sphere
                               after you watch it onboard the Celsius)
        Zanarkand's Prime Treasure Sphere

--

** Mission Complete! **

After you complete the mission, you will be back on the airship.  When you get
control talk to brother laying on the ground.  Choose "Comfort him".  This has
an impact on your percentage rating.  Now go over and talk to Shinra to watch
sphere and get a Black Mage Dressphere.  This is a good dressphere.  You can
get powerful black magic from it.

You will now get complete control over the airship.  You can go anywhere you
want in Spira.  Almost all of the places you could visit in Final Fantasy X.

Here is the list of available places:

Besaid Island
Kilika Island
Luca
Mi'ihen Highroad
Mushroom Rock Road
Djose Temple
Moonflow
Guadosalam
Thunder Plains
Macalania Woods
Bikanel Desert
Bevelle
Calm Lands
Mt. Gagazet
Zanarkand Ruins

Now, as I said earlier, you can get as little or as much out of this game as
you want.  You can simply go to places to advance the story or you can go
exploring.  To simply trigger events and finish the game, read my short
walkthrough section.  If you want to go exploring, then stay with me here.

So at this point we know where two sphere's are possibly located.  Besaid and
Zanarkand.  Let's head to Besaid and drop in on some old friends.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[106] -- Besaid Island -------------------------------------------------------

You'll start just outside of Besaid Village.  Make for the village and you
will run into Wakka.  After you speak with Wakka you will need to find and
speak to Lulu.  Feel free to wander about the town for a while.  When you are
ready, enter the middle hut on the right and speak with Lulu.

After you speak to her, she will mention resting.  If you speak with her again
you can choose to rest to advance the story.

After resting, go outside and find Lulu in the middle area.  Speak with her to
find out that Wakka is missing.  Tell her you will help to find him.

If you speak with all the townsfolk they can give you clues about how and
where to find Wakka.  When you are ready, leave the village and head up the
road past the save sphere.  Examine the ruined pillar where high summoners
used to pray (there should be a shiny thing on it) to get the first number
you will need for the four number passcode to enter the cave cipher door.
This number is random so I can't give you the actual codes as it will be
different from what I got.

Now follow the path up and jump up on top of the short red pillar using "O"
and examine the shiny thing there to get the second number.  Climb back down
and keep following the road, pass over the bridges to the next screen where
you will see a door with a symbol on it.  It will ask you to enter the Cipher
Code.  Pass it up and take the south fork in the road.

On the next screen climb up where the little kids are playing, and then climb
up again to the right.  Climb up until you see the ruin area and a shiny
thing.  Examine it to get the third number.

Now head back down and head towards the beach.  Go all the way to the water
line and follow it up until you reach the rock wall.  Climb up near there to
another small ruin to get the fourth number.

Now head back to the Cipher door and enter the code in the order you found 
them starting with the one closest to Besaid Village.

Head through the door and you will see Wakka sitting down.  Speak to him to
trigger a short sequence.  Now to the right is another coded door.  You can't
do anything with that yet so ignore it and head to the left.  At the first
fork, take a left and grab the Potion x2 from the treasure chest.

Now head back to the fork and take the right path and jump across the
platforms to the save sphere.  Save and prepare for a Boss battle.  I would
recommend equipping the Black Mage Dressphere on one of your characters if
you haven't already.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Flame Dragon
  HP: 980
  MP: 84
Weak: ??
 EXP: 26

Normal Steal: Hi-Potion
  Rare Steal: Hi-Potion x2
 Normal Drop: Red Ring
   Rare Drop: Red Ring
 Dropped Gil: 300
Pilfered Gil: 700

Strategy:
        If you haven't already, equip the Black Mage Dressphere on one of your
characters.  Use the black magic Blizzard on the dragon every turn.  Attack
and use healing potions as needed with your other characters.  He should go
down in no time.

Special Items Received:

        White Mage Dressphere
        Besaid Sphere (Treasure Chest Treasure Sphere)
        Protection Halo Garment Grid
 
--

** Mission Complete! **

After a brief sequence, you will take a look at the Besaid Sphere.  You will
get the Black Mage Dressphere from it.

Now you can either go to Zanarkand Ruins to advance the story and search for
the next sphere, or you can go exploring.  Let's go exploring.  I would
recommend returning to Luca at this point to get a little more information on
what the introduction of the game was all about.  Head to Luca.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[107] -- Luca ----------------------------------------------------------------

This section will start with a movie sequence.  Head down the stairs in your
moogle suit.  Then talk to the guy with the balloons.  He'll give you balloons
to hand out.  You will need to hand out 10.  8 of the people are easy enough
to find.  The only 2 you might have trouble finding are the two people you
can't see.  Head over to the jumbotron television hanging up on the building.
There is a large window closed below it.  Examine it and it will open
revealing the last two people you need to give balloons to.

After some sequences you should then get the Healing Wind Garment Grid.  You
will also see that the healing moogle from the beginning of the game was
actually Yuna!

** Mission Complete! **


Now, let's go back to Luca again to get some stuff.

Head down the stairs again and at the first landing you come to there should
be a treasure chest out in the grass.  Jump over holding "O" to grab the
Lunar Curtain x2.  Continue on down and follow the path.  You will come to
a fork in the road.  Up will lead you to the movie/music sphere theater
exactly as it was in Final Fantasy X.  Since they are very expensive at this
point in the game, skip it.  Instead head left at the fork towards the
stadium.

Head up the stairs past the save sphere and down the stairs on the right to
take you to the Blitzball locker room hallway.  Rin will greet you and give
you an Al Bhed Primer.  Now head back up and go down the stairway on the
left to the other side of the locker rooms.  Talk to the kid with the bird
face to get all the rules on a mini-game called Sphere Break.  You will also
get:

 - 5 Helm Coins
 - 5 Zurvan Coins
 - 5 Coyote Coins
 - 5 Flan Coins

These are coins you will need to play Sphere Break.  Now it's up to you
whether or not you want to try your hand at Sphere Break.  For details on
playing it, see the Sphere Break section under the Mini-Games area of this
FAQ.

Now head back to the save sphere near the ticket counter in front of the 
Blitzball stadium and go to the right.  At the first branch off, take a right
and you will find a treasure chest all the way at the back behind the crates
containing a Thunder Spawn Garment Grid.  Now head back to the airship via
a save sphere.

Now, at this point you can still go to Zanarkand Ruins, however a good place
to go now is the Mi'ihen Highroad.  You won't get anything great there or 
much story, however it is a great place to get some experience and abilities.
It's up to you.  I'll cover Mi'hen Highroad next.  Skip it if you don't care.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[108] -- Mi'ihen Highroad -----------------------------------------------------

Many of you who played Final Fantasy X will remember Mi'ihen Highroad as the
road that never ended.  It was setup via story to produce a little terror in
you as a difficult place to cross and a long part of the journey.  It
certaintly lived up to those expectations.

As it is, however, it is now much easier, but just as long.  So it will take
a good chunk of time to travel.  You used to be able to travel it via 
chocobos, however they have been replaced with hover vehicles.  We will
however be walking.  Go to Luca and head up the stairs to the beginning of
the Mi'ihen Highroad.

I good strategy I used was equipping Yuna with the White Mage Dressphere
and casting Pray every round.  I also used Paine with the Warrior command of
Assault.  This casts Haste, Berserk, Shell, and Protect on everyone.  After
she casts this Yuna will no longer be able to cast Pray but it won't matter.
Everything will die so fast it won't matter.  You will still be able to get
a couple of Pray's in before Paine's Assault gets cast.  You could also equip
an item on Yuna to help protect against Berserk so she won't always get
affected by it.  I used this method and got down the entire Mi'ihen Highroad
without using a healing item like a potion or a healing spell like cure, even
once.

Using this you will fly through the battles and get lots of AP/EXP/Gil.  This
is a good time to start focusing on switching your abilities around on your
characters so they can learn them all.  I learned tons of things for Rikku
off her Thief Grid and tons for Paine on her Warrior Grid.  Yuna had most of
the available White Mage spells learned in just one trip down the Highroad.

Now start on down the road.  Grab the chest to the right for a Phoenix
Down x2.  Keep going and up on the hill to the left under the ruin is a
treasure chest containing 500 gil.  Keep going up the road and grab a Circlet
from the treasure chest on the right.  Further up to the left is a treasure
chest containing a Antidote x2.  Further up on the left near the hover vehicle
is a chest with Holy Water x2.

Later up on the right you will find a Potion x2 from the chest near the 3
machina.  Farther up behind the machina on the left is a treasure chest
containing an Iron Bangle.  When you finally reach Rin's Travel Agency you
find a chest containing Eye Drops x2 on the outcropping to the left of the
agency.

Now continue up along the path and you will find a chest with a Potion in it.
Farther up ahead on the left near the grass is a treasure chest with
Phoenix Down x2.  At the end of the Mi'ihen Highroad behind 3 people talking
together you will find a chest containing Budget Grenade x2.  Now near the
3 people talking, take the fork to the right and down.  You will come across
a chest with a Mana Spring in it.  Keep going and near a save sphere you will
see a chest containing Echo Screen x2.  A little farther you will come across
a treasure chest containing Soft x2.  Now head back to the nearest save
sphere and return to the airship.

At this point you can continue exploring or head to Zanarkand Ruins to
advance the story.  Let's head to Mushroom Rock Road.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[109] -- Mushroom Rock Road --------------------------------------------------

Head to Mushroom Rock Road via the airship.  You will be dropped at the
entrance to the road near the save sphere.  Head up the road and you will see
Ormi and Logos.  Follow them.  You will be greeted at that point by the 
Youth League.  Say "yes, you know him" to Yaibal.  After a brief scene he will
ask you if you are ready to go, say "yes".  Now, instead of following Clasko
to the left, go up and at the next fork in the road, take a left.  Take the
lift up and grab 1000 gil from the chest behind the statue.  Now head back 
down and talk to the Youth League members again and say "Yes" you are ready
again and take the fork to the left to follow Clasko.  This doesn't really
matter too much, if you say "No", Clasko simply goes a little up instead of
to the left to show you which way leads to Djose Highroad.  Anyhow, take
the left for this time.  

You will then start a new mission.  You must try and reach the Youth League
Headquarters.  Fiends will attack more often in this area under the cover of
fog.  You will know when fog has moved in because the screen will get a
darker shade of bluish-purple.

Now, one thing I want to point out in this area is that if you haven't been
following this FAQ, or you have been running from battles instead of fighting,
this area could give you some trouble.  This is the setup I had in this area
and it was a breeze.

Yuna equipped with White Mage Dressphere.
Rikku equipped with Thief Dressphere.
Paine equipped with Warrior Dressphere.

Now, here is how a typical battle went for my team.  Yuna used Pray every
round.  Rikku either used steal/sticky fingers, Pilfer Gil, or attacked every
round.  Paine either attacked every round or most of the time I just used
her Assault command.  Assault casts, Haste, Protect, Shell, and Berserk on
everyone on your team.  This makes the battles go extremly quick.  I also have
my speed for the ATB turned to the fastest setting.  This is the same
technique I used on the Mi'ihen Highroad.

However, there is one exception to this structure.  There is an enemy in this
area called a Tonberry.  He has high HP and does a lot of damage.  These 
battles can take a while.  So if you come across one of these, don't use
Assault because you need to have control over Yuna to cast Pray every round.
Unless you have something that resists Berserk on Yuna.  Instead just attack
manually with Paine.  In any event, if you run into one of these, make sure
you steal and pilfer it.  You could also use Yuna's Vigor command in a pinch
if her HP drops really low.

Take the first lift up and follow the path until you see Ormi and Logos again.
They will jump down into the crevasse.  Follow them down.  Once down in the 
crevasse, grab the treasure chest to the left and up for a Turbo Ether.

Now, keep heading up on the screen towards the red arrow on the mini-map.
After you pass through a narrow passage, grab the chest for a Phoenix Down.
Keep going straight to grab a Hi-Potion from the next treasure chest and
continue on until you reach the save sphere.  The head up through the
doorway/opening right above you.

You will see a scene with Ormi and Logos.  They drop a Crimson Sphere 9 that
you will automatically receive.  When you get control back run up and touch
the statue.  Then leave back to the save sphere.  You will get another scene
with Maroda telling you about where you are, the Den of Woes.

Afterwards, head all the way back out and climb out of the cravasse.  This
time, instead of dropping into the ravine, head left around and up.  Continue
along the path and take the next lift up when you get to it.  After the lift
keep going and you will trigger another event.


** Mission Complete! **

You will receive a Glass Buckle and the Heart of Flame Garment Grid.  When you
get control back, instead of taking the lift up, head down first and grab the
Favorite Outfit from the chest.  Then take the lift up to the Youth League
Headquarters.  Head up to the save sphere and save if you want.  Now go
directly to the right of the save sphere and look for the little off-shoot on
the right side of the cliff on the mini-map.  You may have to backtrack a
little.  Fall down to grab the Restless Sleep Garment Grid from the treasure
chest and then head back up.

Now head up to the large tent entrance and speak to Lucil at least twice.
She will tell you about Meyvn Nooj, but you can't do this part yet.  Now find
the old man sitting down and speak with him.  His name is Maechen.  Don't cut
him off or skip ahead.  Just let him talk the whole long thing out and then
shake his hand at the end.  This affects your percent rating.

Now go back to the save sphere and go back to your airship.  Then go directly
back to Mushroom Rock Road and find Clasko up and to the right of where you
start looking out by the cliff and shaking his head.  Speak with him and
choose "The more the merrier!" when he asks to come aboard your airship.

Then go back to the ship and speak with Shinra and watch the Crimson Report 1
that you received from the sphere you obtained earlier.  Then go to the Cabin
and speak with him.

Now, you can either go to Zanarkand or continue exploring.  I say we head to
Kilika Island via the aiship.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[110] -- Kilika Island -------------------------------------------------------

Head to Kilika via the airship.  From where you start near the save sphere, 
hold the "O" button down and walk to the left side of the pier.  You will jump
over to a boat and onto the next pier to grab the Ether from the treasure
chest.  Then go back to the save sphere and hold "O" and walk along the top of
the pier and directly across from where the dog is barking you will jump
across to a boat and over to the next treasure chest to grab a Mana Tablet.
Then head back over and into town.  

Take the second set of steps up and follow it to grab an Antidote x2 from the 
chest just across the bridge.  Then continue on across the next bridge and
back south to grab the Eye Drops x2 from the chest.  Keep going and then down
the steps at the end to where three people are standing to grab a Phoenix
Down from the chest.  Now go around to the left to see two children and a
woman with a monkey.  Talk to them and the woman will tell you it is a 
Squatter Monkey.  She wants you to collect them for her in the forest.

Now head back up and across bridge to where you first took the second stairway
up.  Then head up on the screen along the lower dock where the man is
sitting in a boat.  You can ride in this to take you up, but don't for now.
Keep going until you see two kids jumping from the top level to the lower
level near a large rug.  Behind that hut on the top level is a chest with
a Light Curtain.  Go back around to the front of the hut and take the next
ramp up to the next hut.  You will see Barthello.  After he goes running off
enter the hut and get a scene with Dona.  Then go upstairs in her house to
grab 1500 gil from the chest outside.  Then go back down and to the hut where
the kids are jumping off and follow around behind it to the far right of the
town.

All the way to the right side of the town you will come across a man with a 
telescope.  Take a look at the new Youth League Base being constructed
through the telescope/camera the guy is holding.  Then grab the chest to the
left for a Lunar Curtain.

Now head back towards the forest entrance along the lower pier to grab 
Holy Water x2 from the treasure chest.  Then head up the stairs from that
chest to grab a Star Curtain from the next treasure chest.

Now head back to the airship and let's head to Djose Temple.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[111] -- Djose Temple --------------------------------------------------------

After a brief cutscene you will see Gippal, the leader of the machine faction.
Grab the Phoenix Down from the chest to the left.  Talk to the people around
until the line to the registration house thins out.  Then go inside and
register.  Now head inside the temple and after a brief scene you will reveive
an Al Bhed Primer.

Now head through the door on the left side and grab an Echo Screen from the
treasure chest.  Then leave the temple and go down to the next screen to the
bridge.  This will trigger another scene.  Seem like Paine and Gippal may
already know each other.  Choose "We're sure" and you'll get the Letter of
Introduction.

Now head to the far end of the bridge to grab a Potion x2 from the treasure
chest.  Then go down to the next screen and to the crossroads on the Djose
Highroad.  Take the fork up/left towards the Moonflow.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[112] -- Moonflow ------------------------------------------------------------

Head up along the road all the way up until you see a small man in a red
outfit named Tobli and he will tell you about his caravan.  Now return to
the moonflow entrance and head back up along the road until you see a Hypello
near a wagon.  Speak with the Hypello to trigger a new mission.

Bandits have been attacking caravans and you must stop them and see to it that
the cargo reaches the destination safely.  If you see a bandit, intercept it
and attack.  If a bandit get hold of your cargo, chase it down and attack.

If the wagon stops, simply walk ahead of it a little to make it start again.
Make sure the bandits don't get anything from the wagon.  This affects your 
completion percentage.  At the end of the trip you will receive a Gun Mage
Dressphere.

** Mission Complete! **

Now let's head to Guadosalam.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[113] -- Guadosalam ----------------------------------------------------------

You can either walk from the moonflow and take a shoopuff to Guadosalam, or
go back to the airship and get there that way.  Go up to the top of the city
to see a short scene about the Farplane.  Try to enter but you won't be able
to.  Then go all the way down to the bottom of the city and take the left exit
to the Thunder Plains.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[114] -- Thunder Plains ------------------------------------------------------

When you reach the Thunder Plains you will get a brief cutscene.  Now start by
going straight up and a ways up and to the right you will find a treasure
chest containing a Black Choker.  When you get to a fork in the road, take the
left path to reach the old travel agency.  Just past it is a chest with a
Phoenix Down inside it.  Up a little farther is a chest containing Grenade x2.

Eventually you will see a shelter off to the left.  Grab the Ether from the
chest under the shelter.  Continue going until you finally reach Macalania
Woods.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[115] -- Macalania Woods -----------------------------------------------------

You will be greeted with a small scene, then continue up a little for another
scene.  You will find that the missing Guado from Guadosalam are hiding out
here.  Talk to all the people here in this area near the base of the glitter
bridge.

Occasionally you may run into an Amorpheus Gel in this area.  It can be
deadly.  If you are not strong enough yet, flee.  Otherwise use scan and the
appropriate elemental magic to defeat it.

Then take the path to the right to the next screen.  Pass this fork in the
road and continue right to the next screen.  Go down at the next intersection
and continue to the waters edge.  Speal with Donga standing there.  He will
disappear.  Now go all the way back to the save sphere at the entrance to
the woods.

Now go up the gitter bridge and at the first for go up to grab the Turbo Ether
from the treasure chest.  Then go back down and left to return to the save
sphere.  This time take the path (not glitter) leading up.  Follow it around
for several screens.  Along the way make sure you grab the White Ring from the
treasure chest.

When you come across Pukutak, make sure you speak with her.  She will
disappear.  Eventually you will get to a small screen that looks like and "X"
on the mini-map.

Down and to the left takes you back to where you just came from.
Down and right takes you up the glitter bridge.
Up and right takes you to a clearing where Tromell awaits.
Up and left takes you to Lake Macalania.

Let's go up and to the right first.  Enter the clearing and speak with the 
Guado there.  Then go all the way in and speak with Tromell 4 times to get
Paine's special dressphere Full Throttle.  You will also get the Unerring
Path Garment Grid.  This Grid makes it quick and easy to transform to your
characters special sphere.

Now head back out to the "X" crossroads area and head up and left.  This takes
you to Lake Macalania where you will see a quick scene.  You will then get 
an Al Bhed Primer.

Now go to the right of O'aka's and grab the Hi-Potion from the treasure chest.
Now re-enter Macalania Woods to trigger a new mission.  The objective is to
find and corner O'aka.

Take the down and right path from the "X" crossroads and follow the glitter
bridge all the way back to the entrance.  Then head to the right twice to the
second crossroads and go up.  Search around that area where the Guado is
sitting and who tells you he had a lot of visitors and you will find O'aka.
Choose "Let's hide him on the airship!"

** Mission Complete! **

You will receive the Ice Queen Garment Grid.

Now find a save sphere and return to the airship.  You will see that Bikanel
Desert is now a hotspot because of your encounter with Gippal earlier.  Go
to the cabin to find O'aka.  You will see that he has a debt of 100,000 gil.
You must pay this off before the end of chapter 2 to get the completion
percentage.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[116] -- Bevelle -------------------------------------------------------------

Enter Bevelle via the airship to get the brief introduction to it.  When you
get control back, head straight up towards the city & the New Yevon
Headquarters.  Eventually you will be met by Baralai and speak with him.  Then
head inside the headquarters and take the lift up and speak with Baralai again
to get a Tiara.  Now head back to the save sphere and go back to the airship.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[117] -- Mt. Gagazet ---------------------------------------------------------

Head to Mt. Gagazet via the airship and after the brief story, head down
towards the Calm Lands.  On the next screen cross the bridge and circle up and
around back under the bridge and head down towards where you found Yojimbo in
Final Fantasy X.  Grab a Phoenix Down from the chest and then head back up to
Mt. Gagazet.  On the screen with Kimahri and the other Ronso, speak with
Kimahri again and choose the option "We'll take care of Lian and Ayde."

Speak with all the other Ronso and try to be understanding and agreeable with
them to get good points towards your relationship with them.  This will matter
later in the game.

There is also a Ronso up in the cave near the top of the mountain.  You can
either warp to him or walk the entire trail for experience.  Choose the option
"a change for the better, I hope" to him.  If you decide to walk up the
mountain beware of thw White Fang.  it has a Killer Fang attack that kills
instantly.

Now head back to the airship.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[118] -- Calm Lands ----------------------------------------------------------

Enter the Calm Lands via the airship and watch the brief introduction.  Now
head down the ramp towards the first hover vehicle and speak with the two
people standing there.  This is the mini-game Lupine Dash.  You can choose to
play this or not.

See the [Mini-Games] section of this FAQ for more information.

You can also choose to campaign for either Argent, Inc. or
Open Air, Inc. by accepting from one of them.  Use the "Square" button to
people throughout Spira after you have chosen which company to campaign for.

See the "Secrets/Sidequests" section of this FAQ for more information.

Now head to the travel agency in the center of the Calm Lands and speak with
man to the right.  He will ask you to help him find a wife for his son.  Agree
to help.  You also use the "Square" button to talk to people in this
sidequest.

See the "Secrets/Sidequests" section of this FAQ for more information.

Now head far behind the travel agency and to the right a little to find the
Sky Slots mini-game.

See the [Mini-Games] section of this FAQ for more information.

Now go far to the right near the monster arena entrance to find the mini-game
Reptile Run.

See the [Mini-Games] section of this FAQ for more information.

Then at the far right is the old monster arena, but you can't go in there yet.

Head back to the airship.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[119] -- Bikanel Desert ------------------------------------------------------

Now let's go to Bikanel Desert.  Head there via the airship.  After a brief 
story introduction, Rikku will take off out into the desert.  Follow her.

After a long way, you will get a brief scene about possibly being lost.
Eventually some Al Bhed find you and you will get an Al Bhed Primer.

When you get control of your characters back, you will be at the Al Bhed camp.
Go to the right a little and speak to Rikku and Paine to trigger another short
scene.  Now speak with everyone in the camp and a ship will fly in with
Nhadala onboard.

Find Nhadala and show her the letter you received from Gippal and you will
receive a new mission to go and dig up parts in the desert and return to camp
with them.

You can also speak with the Al Bhed to the right of Nhadala wearing red to get
survey results about the surrounding areas.  When you are ready speak with the
hover pilot and go to the Western Expanse.  Picket will join you.

When you get out in the desert you will get a brief tutorial.  As the tutorial
is going on, study the mini-map with the X's on it and gather a plan of attack
to try and get all the X's before returning to the hover vehicle.  When you
get control try and grab all the X's (some may be off screen) but make sure
get the yellow X.  The white one's are optional.  Then return to the hover
vehicle.  You will be taken back to the camp.

Nhadala will talk to you and give you 100 gil, an Elixer, and the Still of
Night Garment Grid.

** Mission Complete! **

Now save your game and return to the airship.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[120] -- Zanarkand Ruins -----------------------------------------------------

Head to Zanarkand Ruins via the airship and watch the introduction.  You will
get a new mission to get the treasure sphere.

Now walk ahead and go up on top of the hill to the right to meet and speak
with Isaaru.  After speaking with him head back down and follow the path
towards Zanarkand.  You will see a scene with some kids that mention a clue
they have "key".

Now go inside the building to see another scene.  Keep following the kids and
avoid any monkeys you see because they will steal 1 gil everytime they touch
you.  Eventually you will catch the kids so you need to speak with them.
You will find out they are the Kinderguardians comprised of Pacce, Hana, and
Taro.

Then continue going along the path until you come across a goon with another
clue of "mon".  At this point you will realize the clue is actually "monkey".

Go up a little to reach a circular platform and grab the chest on the right
branch of it for a Mega Phoenix. Continue along the path and take out the
goons blocking your path.  Just past the goon is a chest with a Phoenix Down.

Keep going through the circular doorway to the next goons and take them out.
Then go on upstairs and into the old Zanarkand temple.  Go to the next area
of the temple and examine the monkeys near the screen.  One of them will have
hearts coming off it depicting it is in love and it's name is Maxx.

Now take the lift down and go deeper into the temple to meet Cid.  Choose
"You bet I do." to his question about having a bone to pick with him.  Then go
up into the chamber to grab an Ether, Remedy, Remedy x2, Hi-Potion, Phoenix
Down, and an Elixer from the six chests.

Head upstairs and through the door for another scene.  Then walk forward a
little to trigger another scene where someone will ask you the meaning of
life.  Answer "Is that you, Isaaru?"  You will receive the Heart Reborn 
Garment Grid.

After you get control back, head up and down the stairs at the far end.
Follow the path for a while and you will find a sphere along with a boss
battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Guardian Beast
  HP: 2886
  MP: 1000
Weak: ??
 EXP: 170

Normal Steal: Defense Veil
  Rare Steal: Defense Veil
 Normal Drop: Amulet
   Rare Drop: Amulet
 Dropped Gil: 300
Pilfered Gil: 1320

Strategy:
        This boss is not too difficult however it does have an attack that
can do around 300-400 damage to all your characters so keep you HP up.  If
you have a White Mage, just use a cure spell every round for all characters
(by pressing right when selecting target) or use Pray.  Attack with the other
characters.  The Warrior spell "Excalibur" did 1300 holy damage to the boss
for me so if you have that use it.

Special Items Received:

        Sphere Fragment

** Mission Complete! **

After the mission you will be back on the Celsius and after some story unfolds
you will be forced to go to Kilika Island to find the "Awesome Sphere" in the
woods.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[121] -- Kilika Island -------------------------------------------------------

Head towards the far end of town where the gate to the Kilika woods was.  You
will get a little story scene.  Then continue on towards the gate.  After
another scene with Meyvn Nooj you will receive a new mission.  To break
through and grab Awesome Sphere for yourself.

Now it's time to enter the woods.  The woods contain 13 monkeys you will need
to find as a sidequest.  If you remember earlier when we spoke to the woman in
Kilika who asked us about finding the Squatter Monkey's.  We won't be able to 
complete this sidequest until later, however we will get the monkey's now.  I
have provided a detailed map of the forest along with the locations of all 13
monkeys.  When you return to the woman later in the game you will receive the
Chaos Maelstrom Garment Grid.  It's easy to know when a monkey is near because
you will hear a monkey sound like I squeaking when you are near one.  When you
hear that sound examine the area using the "X" button.

Looking at the map you will see a {P}.  This is where you will be able to spy
on the guards to get the password to get past them and reach Kilika Temple.
I will explain this after the map farther down.

The {T} on the map is a treasure.  You must go to this area and press "O" to 
jump up to where treasure is.  Grab the Megalixer from the chest.

Here is a map:

Now, once you have gotten all the monkeys, head to Kilika Temple on the map.
You will be greeted by guards asking for the password.  Now, if you spied on
the guards as I indicated earlier, you would have received the information
on what the passwords were.  Basically they say that if there are an "odd"
number of guards then the password is "Carved Monkey".  If there are an "even"
number of guards then the password is "Craven Monkey".

Here is a chart for the correct answers and the items you receive for them.

-----------------------------------------------------
 Password         |   Item                            |
------------------------------------------------------|
 Craven Monkey    |   None                            |
 Carved Monkey    |   Hi-Potion                       |
 Craven Monkey    |   Ether                           |
 Carved Monkey    |   Turbo Ether                     |
 Carved Monkey    |   Menace of the Deep Garment Grid |
-----------------------------------------------------

For the last password, if you wait a moment after the prompt pops up asking
you to enter the password, you will hear footsteps of another guard joining.
Then if you wait and look you will see there are actually 5 guards instead
of the 4 that you might have initially thought.

After passing all the guards, head up the stairs and prepare for another boss
battle.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[122] Chapter 2.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[123] -- Celsius -------------------------------------------------------------

At the start of this chapter you will be back onboard the Celsius after a
introduction scene.

Speak with Shinra to look at the Awesome Sphere.  You will see a person that
looks very similar to Tidus standing in front of something called the
Vegnagun.  The person also mentions the name Lenne.  After viewing the sphere
you will receive an Al Bhed Primer.

Now speak to brother to trigger the next scene.  Afterwards, head down to the
engine room to grab an Ether x2, Phoenix Down x5, Potion x8, and Remedy x4
from the four chests.  Then head to the cabin and rest.  Then speak with the
third musician in the hallway named Paraya.  You will then need to push
everyone into the elevator.  This will start a concert event.

After a lengthy scene and a somewhat disturbing FMV you will need to head to
the bridge.

At this point you have a decision to make.  Choose carefully because it
affects the rest of your game.  You must choose who to give the Awesome Sphere
to.  New Yevon or Youth League.

Here are the pros and cons:

New Yevon - If you pick New Yevon you will not be able to get 100% completion
            for this game.  You will meet with Baralai and a grand reception
            in Bevelle and all the New Yevon people of Spira will love you.
            However if you attempt to go to Mushroom Rock Road and the Youth
            League Headquarters you will be attacked with the culmination
            being a battle against Elma.  The highest percentage you can get
            with this scenario is 99%.

Youth League - If you choose the Youth League you can get 100% completion.
               You will meet with Meyvn Nooj and a grand reception from Elma,
               Lucil, and the others.  All the Youth League members in Spira
               will love you.  However if you enter Bevelle, you will be
               attacked.

It really is up to you.  For the purposes of this FAQ we will choose to give
the sphere to the Youth League.  You will be treated to a grand reception
and told about the Vegnagun by Meyvn Nooj.  Buddy will come running in and
you will then be back onboard the Celsius.

Back onboard the Celsius you will find out that Leblanc has stolen the broken
sphere you found in Zanarkand.  You will get Leblanc's Sphere that depicts
her, Ormi and Logos on the Celsius rubbing it in your face.

You will then get a new mission to aquire 3 women's Syndicate uniforms and to
use them to sneak into Chateau Leblanc to steal the sphere back.

Now, you can head directly to Djose Highroad to grab the first uniform,
however you will miss out on some great story and sidequests.  So instead,
we'll be heading back to Besaid.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[124] -- Besaid Island -------------------------------------------------------

When you get to Besaid you will encounter a Youth League member named Beclam
who is training the Besaid Aurochs to be Youth League members.  Choose "You're
on, Beclam" to initiate a new mission.  This is basically a mini-game called
Gunner's Gauntlet.

The objective is to score more than 500 points and make it along the path to
the beach were Beclam awaits within the time limit.  A guage at the bottom of
the screen will begin to rise as you kill fiends without getting hit.  If you
get hit, the gauge resets.  As the gauge fills, the point value of killing a
fiend gets higher.  

This game depends solely on not getting hit!!  If you get it is very difficult
to get to 500 points before the time limit runs out.  Not impossible, but
difficult.  So just don't get hit.

For information on the controls of the game see the [Mini-Games] Section of
this FAQ.

Now my strategy is simply this:

Go along the path and kill all the enemies on the first screen using the
regular ammo.  Press the "O" button to get the enemies in your sights even if
they are not yet in screen.  After they are gone, head to the next screen
towards where the large red ruins are.  Kill everything using regular ammo
until you get to the first bridge.  By this time you should have at least 1
Death ammo and maybe some dual ammo.  Use the regular and dual ammo on the 
brown lupine and the grey/red lupine.  Use the 1 Death ammo on the large 
flying fiend.  This is important so that you don't run out of ammo.  After
killing them run up and grab the treasure chests when you see a break to get
more ammo.  The back up to before the bridge again and repeat this process
until you have either 500 points or onlt 1 minute remaining and then make a 
break for the beach.  Try and save 1 Death ammo.  When you finally reach the
next screen, take out the large Golem with 1 Death ammo and head to the beach
and speak with Beclam.

You will get the Enigma Plate Garment Grid as well as the satisfaction of
stuffing your high score in Beclam's face.

** Mission Complete! **

Now head back to Besaid and go to that first bridge/waterfall again and this
time fall down to the left of the bridge to grab a Wall Ring from the 
treasure chest.  Now head back to the airship and then on to Kilika Island.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[125] -- Kilika Island -------------------------------------------------------

Head to Kilika Island via the airship.  Jump to the left of the save sphere
again like we did earlier in the game to grab a Turbo Ether from the treasure
chest.  Then go back and jump up across the boat to grab the Mana Tablet x2
from that chest.  Then head back and go to the right where you will see and
talk with Dona.  She will be happy to see you if you chose Youth Leagure
earlier, but not happy if you chose New Yevon.  Either way you will not be
able to enter Kilika Island yet so head back to the airship.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[126] -- Luca ----------------------------------------------------------------

Head down the steps and then down the smaller set of steps and grab the Light
Curtain x2 from the chest on the small landing in the grass again.  Then
continue back down the steps and you will get roped into a story.  Just watch
a listen and then respond whatever you want to her question to get the 
Covetous Garment Grid.  Now let's return to the airship.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[127] -- Mi'ihen Highroad ----------------------------------------------------

Head to the Mi'ihen Highroad via the airship.  Go inside the travel agency to
trigger a short segment.  Then head outside to follow the girl to the cliff
edge over-looking the water.  Speak with the girl named Calli.  After a quick
scene choose "Of course" to helping her catch a chocobo.  This will initiate
a new mission to try and catch a chocobo.

Follow Rikku down the path and grab all the feathers along the way.  When
Rikku stops and you choose wheter or not to follow her, choose no.  Do this a
second time and then the third time follow her to grab a Chocobo Wing x3 from
the chest.  This will start the quest over.

This time, only grab 1 feather on the ground and don't follow her to any of
the three branches.  Just keep going.  At the next screen continue going and
eventually you will have to play a quick game of trying to block guess which
way the chocobo is going to go.  Just hold right the entire time and
hopefully you will nab it enough to where it will finally say the chocobo is
losing it's concentration.  At this point the chocobo will face the direction
it is going to run enabling you to block it everytime.  So just press the
appopriate direction or nothing at all depending on the direction the chocobo
is facing.  Eventually the chocobo will get away and you will need to follow
Rikku again.

Head for the circle with the arrow in it on the mini-map and keep following
the arrow grabbing any treasure along the way.  There should be a chest with
1000 gil in it.  Eventually it will escape again.  Rikku and Paine will
suggest trying something else.  So now, head down towards Luca and grab the 
Muscle Belt from the chest just before the exit.  Then turn and talk to the
lady at the hover vehicle twice.  Choose "Please, yes!" to get her help.

You will then catch the chocobo.

After you catch the chocobo, someone will run and tell you that Calli needs
help.  Follow the red arrow on the mini-map until you eventually see a
cutscene of Calli getting ready to be attacked.  Clasko flies in and tries to
help.  At this point you will have a time limit in which to get down the road
and reach her.  Get moving!

Grab any chest you see along the way.  You should find chests containing, 
Phoenix Down x3, Grenade x2, and an Ether.  Once you reach Calli you will
trigger a boss fight.

** Mission Complete! **

After the mission you will be back onboard the airship.  Now head back to the
Mi'ihen Highroad and speak with Clasko near the travel agency by the chocobo.
Choose "All aboard!" to have him, Calli, and the chocobo board the Celsius.

Return to the airship.  You will now see that the Calm Lands is now a hotspot.
We will take care of this later.  For now, let's head to Mushroom Rock Road.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[128] -- Mushroom Rock Road --------------------------------------------------

Go to Mushroom Rock Road via the airship and from the save sphere travel up.
Skip the first fork to the left for now and continue up and take the second
left and go up the lift.  Grab the Hi-Potion from the chest and 1500 gil from
the other chest.  Then go back down and to the first fork that went left
towards the Youth League Headquarters again.

After a scene, they will offer to escort you to the Headquarters.  Follow them
closely until Buddy calls down with a sphere report.  Then head down into the
ravine towards the Den of Woes.  Grab the Turbo Ether, Phoenix Down, and the
Ether from the chests along the way.  When you reach the Den of Woes through
the opening, you will get a scene with Meyvn Nooj.  You will receive the
Crimson Sphere 7.

Now go back out of the ravine and return to the guards waiting.  Follow them
farther along the path.  You will come to a large Drowsy Ochu.  If you walk
slowly with them you will not have to fight it.  I fought it because it was
easy.  Walk past the second one or fight it.  Then take the lift at the end
up.

At the main lift grab the Shining Bracer from the chest behind it, then take
lift up to Headquarters.  At the save sphere, go to the right again and fall
down the small little path on the mini-map to grab a Mythril Bangle.  This
accessory raises max HP by 60%!!  That's massive.  Now go back up and head
toward the main tent and talk to everyone for a brief scene.  Then head back
to the airship.

Back on the airship, talk to Shinra to watch the Crimson Record 7.  Then we
will head to Djose Highroad via the airship to Mushroom Rock Road and walking
along it upwards until the next screen.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[129] -- Djose Highroad ------------------------------------------------------

Head to Djose Highroad by taking the airship to Mushroom Rock Road and then
traveling upwards along it to the next screen.

When you get there you will see that the Leblanc Syndicate has seized control
of the Highroad and will get a new mission.  You must swipe the lost sphere
and grab some Syndicate clothing along the way.

Follow the Highroad until you see a orange shining ball near a rock pillar
on the right.  Grab the sphere.  It is Yuna's special dressphere, Floral
Fallal.  This will also initiate a Mini-Boss battle against Ormi and Logos.

-- Mini-Boss Battle --
Name: Ormi, Logos, Fem-Goon

the darkness Ormi inflicts on you.  Take Ormi out first, then Logos.  Simple.

Special Items Received:

** Mission Complete! **

You will then be returned to the Celsius.  Now let's head to the Moonflow.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[130] -- Moonflow ------------------------------------------------------------

Go to the Moonflow via the airship.  Go right one screen and speak with Tobli.
You will receive a new mission to sell tickets for the upcoming concert.  You
simply need to walk up to people and press the "Square" button to initiate the
sell.  You only get one chance to sell to each person and you only get 10
chances to sell overall.  If you spoke with Tobli prior to undertaking the
"Shave the Hypello?" mission the base price of the tickets will be 500.  If
not the base price will be 1000.  You can try and sell the tickets at any
price up to 2000 gil and you get to keep the profits.

Following my FAQ you could earn up to 11500 gil or 6500 gil if you didn't
speak to Tobli earlier in the game.

Now, here are all the people you need to speak to and the asking price for
each.

- 1 -
Head down all the way to the entrance of the Moonflow where you first saw
the Hypello earler who needed help with his wagon.  Near the entrance should
be a woman wearing red on the left side of the road.  Talk to her and offer
the ticket for 1500 gil.

- 2 -
Now head back up to the screen Tobli was on and just as you enter that screen
you will see a woman on the left with a red headband on.  Sell for 1500 gil.

- 3 -
Speak to the woman just to the left of Tobli standing with the child and sell
the ticket for 1000 gil.

- 4 -
Go left to the next screen to the save sphere and speak to the woman below
the save sphere wearing an orange skirt.  Sell for 1500 gil.

- 5 -
Go left again to the Shoopuff area and sell to the person sitting on the
stairs for 1500 gil.

- 6 -
Now speak with the tall man wearing green to the left of the stairs and sell
for 2000 gil.

- 7 -
Ride the Shoopuff across to the next area and go down the steps to speak with
the kid wearing the white shirt next to the Hypello and sell for 2000 gil.

- 8 -
Go up the ramp and speak to the person wearing the yellow/green dress and
sell for 2000 gil.

- 9 -
Go left to the next screen and talk to the person wearing green standing to
the left of the Hypello and across from the bench.  Sell for 2000 gil.

- 10 -
Head left again to the next screen and speak to the man wearing blue and
white standing on the left side of the path going towards Guadosalam.
Sell for 1500 gil.

At this point you will have sold 10 tickets for a 6500-11500 profit.  You
will receive a Muscle Belt and the Seething Cauldron Garment Grid.

** Mission Complete! **

Now let's head to Guadosalam.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[131] -- Guadosalam ----------------------------------------------------------

Head to Guadosalam via the airship.  Go up to the main red door where the two
goons are waiting to get a quick scene.  Now go back and save the game.

*Note: Make sure you save the game, this is extremely important.

Then head down stairs to the inn and speak with the man behind the counter.
The inn is directly in front of the entrance to Guadosalam from the Moonflow.

Choose "Got any data?".  Then pay the 10,000 gil for it by choosing "Sounds
good, I'll take it."

Now the object is to try and find the person in Guadosalam that wants the
data he gave you.  The person is random and the value you will get paid
for the data is dependant on the person.

After you pay for the data he will give you a hint.  Then speak to him again
for a second hint.  Unless the hints are the exact ones listed below, reset
the game, reload your save inside Guadosalam, and try it again.

Hint 1
"It's the last person you'd expect, no question."

Hint 2
"It's the closest person you can find."

If the hints are the ones I listed, press the "Square" button to speak with
him again.  You will receive 100,000 gil!!

That's all there is in Guadosalam for now, so now let's head down to the 
Thunder Plains.  You can walk there from Guadosalam.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[132] -- Thunder Plains ------------------------------------------------------

Walk to the Thunder Plains from Guadosalam.  Head up and talk to the Al Bhed
fixing the first tower.  Tell him you will help him calibrate the towers and
he will head off to the travel agency.

Now this is a mini-game of sorts.  There are 10 towers in all.  Simply walk
up to a tower and press "X" to start the game for that tower.  A button will
appear over Rikku's head.  Either "X", "O", "Triangle", or "Square".  When the
symbol pops up, quickly press that button on your controller.  You will have
to do this 30 times to successfully calibrate the tower.  The closer you get
to thirty, the harder it becomes.  The towers farther on in to the Thunder
Plains are much more difficult as well.  The game changes slightly between
each tower.  You'll understand when you play them.

There are 5 towers before you reach the travel agency.  Then there are 5
after the travel agency.  1 of the towers is difficult to find.  It is after
the travel agency.  Walk along the left side of the screen and you should get
a little scene saying you need to get closer.  Keep going up the left side 
examining the shoreline for it and you will find it.

Simply attempt to calibrate all 10 towers and successfully calibrate 5 out of
the 10 and you can talk to the Al Bhed inside the travel agency in the center
of the Thunder Plains to get the Samurai's Honor Garment Grid.

On your way to the travel agency you will find Cid along the right side of the
screen.  Talk to him.  The continue on and grab the Pearl Necklace along the
way from the chest.

After you reach the travel agency you will see a chest containing a Ether x2.

That all for this place right now.  Let's head to Macalania Woods.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[133] -- Macalania Woods -----------------------------------------------------

Near the entrance to Macalania Woods you will see a Hypello.  Speak with him
to initiate a sidequest.  Now head up the path and grab the Icy Gleam from
the treasure chest along the way.  It's kind of hard to see.  Keep on going
and head towards Macalania Lake.  When you reach the "X" shaped crossroads
take the top right path to where you first spoke with Tromell in chapter 1.

You will find Bayra where Tromell used to be.  Speak to him.  This will give
you a new mission to find Donga and Pukutak.  They will look like a circle of
blue butterflies.

Now head back out and take the up left path to Lake Macalania and grab the
Hi-Potion x2 from the treasure chest.  Now head back to the crossraods and
take the bottom right path.  This will put you on the glitter bridge.  Along
the way you will find Donga.  Afterwards, go up at the fork to grab a Silver
Bracer from the treasure chest.  Now continue on the bridge back to the
entrance of Macalania Woods where the save sphere is.

Now go two screens to the right where you will find a fork in the road.  Take
the down fork and follow to the waterline to find Pukutak.  Then speak to
Bayra again.

** Mission Complete! **

You will receive a Haste Bangle.

Choose "Yes" to go back to the Celsius.  Once onboard the airship, go back to 
Macalania Woods.  Walk up and speak to the Hypello again to get the Bitter
Farewell Garment Grid and a Minerva Plate.

Now return to the airship and go to Bikanel Desert.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[134] -- Bikanel Desert ------------------------------------------------------

Head to Bikanel Desert via the airship and speak to Nhadala.  She'll tell you
to go to the Oasis.  If you speak to the person near the locked chest you will
also get a hint that the key to the chest is somewhere in the Central Expanse.
However you cannot go there yet.

Speak to the pilot twice and choose to go to the Oasis and you will receive a
new mission to investigate the Oasis and report back to Nhadala.  When you 
reach the Oasis, run up and grab Rikku's special sphere, Machina Maw.

Upon receiving the sphere, you will have to fight Logos and 2 Fem-Goons.  Take
them out.

** Mission Complete! **

You will get a Lure Bracer that is dropped by Logos.  This item increases
random enemy encounters. You will also receive a Synicate Uniform and the Hour
of Need Garment Grid.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[135] -- Calm Lands ----------------------------------------------------------

Go to the Calm Lands via the airship.  If you have Clasko onboard the Celsius
by completing certain events earlier in the game, you will see a scene with
him talking about his fate and then run off to the old monster arena.

When you get control back, follow him and enter the monster arena at the far
right of the Calm Lands.  Talk to him inside and choose to help him.  This
will start a new mission to wipe out all the fiends inside the ruins.

This mission is very simple, however be careful when you fight a Queen Coeurl
because the have an attack called the Death Blast that instantly kills one
character.

Now, all but one of the fiends at a time inside the ruins is a ghost.  Only
the real fiend can be touched because if you touch to many ghosts before
finding the real one, you will have to start over and the real fiend changes
locations randomly everytime.  You will have to find the real fiend five times
to complete the mission.

Now, in order to find the real fiend, you simply need to walk around and look
at all the fiends.  Pay close attention to the direction they are facing.  All
the ghost fiends will be facing the real fiend.  So just find the fiend they
are all looking at.  Usually the real fiend will be facing the opposite
direction as the others.  However this is not always the case.  I have seen
times where the real fiend was on the end of a row and it was looking the same
direction as the others.  In thses cases just pick the one on the end of the
row.

Here is a map of the ruins and the locations of all the fiends:

                                 To Calm Lands                                

*See Secrets/Sidequests section (Chocobo Ranch Secret Dungeon) to find out how
 to open this hidden dungeon.

Okay, so you understand the map right?  I thought so.  The {F} is the location
of all the fiends, ghosts or real.  The real fiend location is random.  So if
all the fiends are facing one direction towards a particular fiend, then the
fiend they are looking at is the real one.

The {C} is where you will find Clasko after getting the first 5 fiends.  The
{F2} is where you will find the 6th fiend you will need to get to finish the 
mission.  The {C2} is where Clasko will be standing after the mission is
complete and the ruins have been turned into a Chocobo Ranch.

** Mission Complete! **

After you complete the mission you will receive the Alchemist Dressphere and
the Highroad Winds Garment Grid.

Now, go back inside the ruins and speak to Clasko again to get the Gysahl
Greens and Pahsana Greens from him.  You can use the Gysahl Greens to catch
chocobos now.  You will also notice the ruins have been turned into the 
Chocobo Ranch where you can raise, feed, and breed chocobos.

You will need to catch at least one chocobo before the end of Chapter 3 to get
the completion percentage.  So let's head to the travel agency at the center
of the Calm Lands.

Keep walking around until you get an encounter with a chocobo on your way to
the travel agency.  When the battle starts, quickly use the item Gysahl Greens
on the chocobo before taking any other action.  Then kill the enemies quickly.
Once the chocobo is alone, give it another Gysahl Green to catch it.

Now that we have that out of the way, go the the travel agency and speak to
Lian and Ayde.  They will run off.

Let's head to Mt. Gagazet.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[136] -- Mt. Gagazet ---------------------------------------------------------

Travel to Mt. Gagazet from the Calm Lands and along the way grab the Phoenix
Down x2 from the chest in the area between the Calm Lands and Mt. Gagazet.
Then go down under the bridge to the area where you found the entrance to the
cave where Yojimbo was in Final Fantasy X.  Grab the Phoenix Down from the
chest there.

Now go up to Mt. Gagazet and speak to Kimahri.  He'll tell you about the
Fayth Scar.  Talk to him a second time and answer "You'll have to figure this
out on your own."

Speak to the remaining Ronso and answer accordingly to each one.  Try to be
on there side to gain there trust.  Then go to the warp pad and warp to the
Mountain Path.  Follow the path up the mountain until you get a scene with
a Fem-Goon.  Instead of following her up the cliff, go up the normal path and
into the cave to speak to the final Ronso inside.  Answer with the second
option on the list.  Then head back down to where the Fem-Goon was to start a
new mission to get the Syndicate Uniform.

Climb up the rockface until you reach an entrance.  From just outside the
entrance, WALK slowly (Don't run) to the right and jump across to the rock
pillar and grab an Elixer from the treasure chest.  If you run, the rock will
move and you won't be able to get the item until you start over.  To start
over if you mess up, just walk away and off-screen from it and try again.

Now go inside the entrance.  Take the first right and climb up to grab a
Hi-Potion from the treasure chest.  Then go back down and take the up fork
this time.  On the next screen you will see the Fem-Goon again.  Go down to
the save sphere and save/heal if you want.  However DON'T follow the Fem-Goon
down the path to the right.  From the save sphere, backtrack to the left and
up the cliff and go up this time, instead of dropping down to the save sphere.

Keep going up until you eventually reach a landing where you can go up to the
left or up to the right.  Go up to the left first.  WALK slowly again to the
left and hop across to grab a White Cape from the treasure chest.  Then go
back to the landing and go up and right this time.  Go inside the cave on the
left and grab a Phoenix Down from the treasure chest.  Then go back outside
and go to the right.  You will eventually see an off-shoot to the left.  Go
to it and walk into it to trigger a scene where you are spying down on the
hot springs and the Fem-Goons.  This scene counts towards the completion
percentage so if you don't get it, you went the wrong way.

After the scene, you will fall down into the hot springs.  You will receive
the Syndicate Uniform.

After the hot springs scene, continue on along the path and you will have to
fight the two Fem-Goons.  Take them out and continue along and you will have
to fight Ormi just past the save sphere.  Take him out to complete the
mission.

** Mission Complete! **

You will receive the Stonehewn Garment Grid for completing the mission to get
the Syndicate Uniform.  If this was your final Syndicate Uniform to get of the
three, you will also receive the Bum Rush Garment Grid.

Take the time to switch from the Vanguard Garment Grid to the Bum Rush Garment
Grid.  It has better attributes (+5 over the Vanguard).

Before we go to Guadosalam, let's go to Zanarkand Ruins.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[137] -- Zanarkand Ruins -----------------------------------------------------

Go to Zanarkand Ruins via the airship and follow the path towards the temple.
After a brief scene head on down the road.  When you come to that same
circular stone landing with the branches leading off it, grab the Dispel Tonic
from the treasure chest.  Just before the circular door, grab the Phoenix Down
from the treasure chest.  When you reach the stairway, grab the Hi-Potion x2,
and Grenade x2 from the chests.

Eventually you will come to find Isaaru.  Speak to him to trigger a new
mission: Operation: Monkey!  The object of this mission is to play match
maker with all the little monkeys.

Head up the steps and grab the L-Bombx 2 from the chest.  Inside the temple
area, grab the Remedy, Lunar Curtain, then the Mana Spring, Light Curtain, and
1000 gil from the chests you find.

In the room with the six chests you'll find an Elixer x2, Phoenix Down x2, 
Hi-Potion x2, Remedy x3, Remedy x2, and an Ether x2.

Now, to match make the monkeys, you simply need to find their opposites.  For
example, the monkey named Sol has a mate named Luna (Sun and Moon).  To start
match-making, find the first monkey with a bunch of heart's floating over it's
head.  Then walk around and try to find its mate.  After you match one, you
will need to find the next one with hearts over its head.  You can only do one
at a time and yes, you will be doing ALL of them.  If you leave the temple
area, Isaaru will block you and confiscate your monkey.  You will have to go
and get that monkey again from the same place and start again.  So don't
leave the temple area.

The temple area starts at the screen with the stairs and broken columns, all
the way to the room with the stars floating overhead and multiple stairs
leading into nothing.  Where you met Yunalesca in Final Fantasty X.

After you match them all, you will get the Soul of Thamasa.

** Mission Complete! **

Now return to the airship and take care of a little housekeeping.  We need to
quickly pay off O'aka's debt.  Find O'aka in the Cabin and buy as many Holy
Waters as you can or need to.  Then go to the Hypello Barkeep and sell them
all to him.  Repeat this process as many times as needed to pay off O'aka's
debt.  You may want to know why I recommend buying and selling the Holy
Water's instead of Hi-Potions since they are more expensive and would require
less buying and selling.  This is because the buy/sell ration on the Holy
Water's is higher than that of the Hi-Potion.  That way you won't lose as much
money when you sell them.  It's up to you though.  It doesn't really matter.

*******************
* UNLIMITED GIL!! *
******************************************************************************
* After you pay off O'aka's debt, he will thank you by selling you stuff     *
* very cheap for now.  Simply buy 99 of the cheap items and sell them to     *
* Barkeep.  You will make a huge profit and can do this as many times as you *
* want to or until you get extremely bored.  Once O'aka leaves the ship in   *
* the next chapter, you can no longer do this.                               *
******************************************************************************

He will also be able to re-open his shop later in the game and sell some great
stuff.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[138] -- Guadosalam ----------------------------------------------------------

Before going to Guadosalam make sure you have payed off O'aka's debt. To do
this simply find O'aka in the Cabin and buy as many Holy Waters as you can or
need to.  Then go to the Hypello Barkeep and sell them all to him.  Repeat
this process as many times as needed to pay off O'aka's debt.  You may want to
know why I recommend buying and selling the Holy Water's instead of Hi-Potions
since they are more expensive and would require less buying and selling.  This
is because the buy/sell ration on the Holy Water's is higher than that of the
Hi-Potion.  That way you won't lose as much money when you sell them.  It's
up to you though.  It doesn't really matter.

After you pay off his debt, he will thank you by selling you stuff very cheap
for now.  He will also be able to re-open his shop later in the game and sell
some great stuff.

Save the game right before you go to Guadosalam.

Now, it's off to Guadosalam.  Go to Guadosalam via the airship and walk up to
the Chateau Leblanc (Seymour's old place).  Choose "Okay" to change your
clothes and start a new mission to recover the stolen sphere.  You will then
witness a brief scene inside with Leblanc and Meyvn Nooj.

When you get control back, go through the purple door and speak to Ormi and
Logos inside the room.  Then head back out and go upstairs and down the hall
on the left.  Go inside the room and you will get a scene with Leblanc who
wants a massage.  This is a somewhat annoying mini-game because it forces you
to play it.  If you get it on the first try, you will later get a Gold Hairpin
that cuts MP usage in half when equipped.  If you don't, you will get the
Heady Perfume that raises some stats when equipped.  It's up to you.

The object is to try and get the statisfaction meter up to 32 in 15 rounds.

Okay, here is a basic strategy to get it on the first attempt through the
mini-game.  Always start by massaging "1" on the diagram.  If you get a
yellow heart, then try one of the "A" positions.  Then continue until you
get the red heart.  If you get a blue heart on try "1" then go to try "2" on
the diagram.  If you get a yellow heart on try "2" then try one of the "B"
positions until you get a red heart.  If you get a yellow heart on a "B" 
position, don't forget to try the "{D}" position as well.  Hopefully you
understand what I am saying and will be able to use this to complete the
mini-game.  If you mess up and want the Gold Hairpin, you must reset the game
and try again.

Once you complete the mini-game, Leblanc will fall asleep and Ormi and Logos
will come in and tell you to check the switch.  Go downstairs to the room
where you saw Ormi and Logos before.  Examine the door at the top left.
You will hit the switch that reveals a secret passage.

Follow the corridor and you will have to fight Ormi.  Take him out and
continue on to the save sphere.  Now go up through the door and grab the item
from the chest.  This chest is where you will get either the Gold Hairpin or
the Heady Perfume.  Go back out and go down the corridor to the next room.
Go inside to grab the Crimson Sphere 10 on top of the dresser.

You will then have to fight Logos and Ormi.  Take them out.  Then you will get
a message saying "booby traps armed".

Go out of the room and hang a right.  Then take a left at the next fork.
Climb up and fall into the first pit.  Examine the wall to activate one
of the overrides.  Climb up and fall down into the next pit and activate the
next override.  Climb up and continue on.  You will get a spiked wall chasing
you.  Run back and jump the first pit but fall into the next one.  As soon as
the spikes pass over, climb out of the pit.  This will trigger a scene where
you barily miss dodge the spikes.  You will now be up on the ledge.
activate the third override.

Then go back up and down the corridor again but this time the spikes won't
appear.  Hit the switch to open the security door.  Go through the new opening
and enter the circular door on the right.  This will trigger another scene and
you will have to fight Leblanc, Ormi, and Logos.  They are relatively simple
as usual, however they have a "No Love Lost" trio attack that does decent
damage.  Leblanc also has a move called "Mach Fan" that does around 100 damage
to all of your characters.  Defeat them easily.

** Mission Complete! **

You will receive a Twist Headband, Charm Bangle, and the Reassembled Sphere.
You will also get the Healing Light Garment Grid.

The Charm Bangle is a useful item if you don't feel like fighting and are at
a decent level.  It eliminates random enemy encounters.  Be careful when 
equipping this item for too long.  You may do more harm than good as the
bosses may become to difficult for you eventually.

Notice there is a treasure chest in the same room that you can't get yet.

After you defeat them, you will get the sphere and watch it.  It basically
shows you some Yevon Guards protecting the Vegnagun, leading you to assume
that the Vegnagun is in Bevelle.  Leblanc and her goons team up with you
and it's off to Bevelle.  You are forced to Bevelle.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[139] -- Bevelle -------------------------------------------------------------

When you reach Bevelle, Leblanc, Ormi, and Logos will run off and you will
have to fight some New Yevon Guards.  Take them out and you will get a new
mission to find Vegnagun.

At this point in the game my characters were level 28 and I had no problems
with any battles.

Fight your way along and enter the main city area.  Follow the path along and
enter the temple area where you met Baralai in chapter 1.  Once inside, go to
the right and jump up on top of the small table.  This will open a passage.
Then head back and go to the left this time.  Climb up into the opening and
touch the blue pillar of light on the bottom of the screen to change the
direction of the main lift.

Now return to the center area where the lift is and take the lift down.  This
takes you to the Bevelle Temple that will be VERY familiar to those of you
who played Final Fantasy X.

After you get all the treasure chests, head to LB and take the lift to the
next level.  Head to the right and grab the Chocobo Feather from the treasure
chest near the save sphere.  Then save the game.

Now head right to the next room for a quick scene.  Then jump down the hole
and walk forward to trigger the next scene.  Now basically you just need to go
up and walk along the side of the ledge to slide down the chain to the center
part of the room.  If you have trouble finding the chain just talk to Leblanc
and she will show you were the chain is at.  Slide down the chain when you
find it.  If you want you can go back up and slide down as many times as you
want.

When you reach the bottom platform you will be greeted by two YAC-13 enemies.
Take care of them and then you will be near the center of the platform.  Now
in order to advance you have to deactivate the security devices.  There are
3 blue towers and 3 red towers.  You will have to go to each one and go up the
short stairs and touch the control panel on each.  After touching each one you
will have to fight a YSLS-Zero or a YSLS-99.  They have the usual Hay Maker
and Blast Punch attacks.

Alright, now, you can deactivate the security devices in any order you want,
but the easiest is to just start with B1 and go clockwise around the platform
disabling R1, B2, R2, B3, then R3.

Now, after you have deactivated all 3 blue devices, you will have to fight a
mini-boss.

-- Mini-Boss Battle --
Name: Precepts Guard
  HP: 3680
  MP: 9999
Weak: Holy
 EXP: 700

Normal Steal: Mana Tablet
  Rare Steal: Mana Tablet x2
 Normal Drop: Regen Bangle
   Rare Drop: Regen Bangle
 Dropped Gil: 800
Pilfered Gil: 1600

Strategy:
        This mini-boss has a few decent attacks like Demi that cuts your HP by
1/4.  However the only real dangerous spell is its instant K.O. spell that
kills one character instantly.  So watch out for that and revive your character
if they die from it.  A good strategy is to use two gunners and one white mage
during this boss fight.  Just keep hitting Trigger Happy with the two gunners
and then use Pray every round with the White Mage.  Revive and heal when
needed.  You shouldn't have any problems with this mini-boss.
 
--

After defeating the blue tower mini-boss, you can deactivate the last red
tower.  After all the red towers are deactivated, you will have to fight
another mini-boss.

-- Mini-Boss Battle --
Name: Georapella
  HP: 4420
  MP: 9999
Weak: Holy
 EXP: 800

Normal Steal: Water Gem
  Rare Steal: Water Gem x2
 Normal Drop: NulTide Ring
   Rare Drop: NulTide Ring
 Dropped Gil: 1000
Pilfered Gil: 1300

Strategy:
        This mini-boss basically just uses third level Black Magic spells like
Thundaga, Blizzaga, etc.  A good strategy is to use two gunners and one white
mage during this boss fight.  Just keep hitting Trigger Happy with the two
gunners and then use Pray every round with the White Mage.  Revive and heal
when needed.  You shouldn't have any problems with this mini-boss.

Okay, now, you can either choose to move on to the next area by going down the
steps in the center pit to step #3 and go inside the orange door opening or
you can try for the treasure chest containing a Ribbon.  The Ribbon is an
awesome item in many other Final Fantasy games.  It protects your character
against ALL status ailments.

So, why not go for it?  Well, if you had trouble with the two mini-bosses, you
will have a hard time getting it because we will be manipulating the steps
using the towers again, and each time you move a step you will have to fight
one of the mini-bosses.  I didn't have any trouble with them so I got it.  Of
course it took me quite a while to figure out the way to get the steps lined
up correctly so I had to fight them many times.  One helpful hint is that you
can go back up the chain and up the hole in the floor to the save point
anytime you want to heal and save or buy items from Barkeep.

Is it just me or are items worthless in this game.  I haven't used even one
the entire game so far.  I have 99 of most of them so everytime I get
something like a Hi-Potion or Phoenix Down from a treasure chest I think to
myself "Oh...wow...whoop de friggin' doo...!"  Okay, back to the walkthrough.

So we're going for the Ribbon right?  Good.

Go to the B1 tower and touch it.  Fight the mini-boss and repeat this process
until you see that the very bottom step {6} is in front of the bottom orange
doorway in the pit.

Now go to touch R1 then immediately go and touch B1.  Then fight the
mini-boss.  Repeat this process until you see that the step {4} is directly
to the left and concentric (in order) after the third step.

Finally, go to touch R2 then immediately go and touch B2.  Fight the
mini-boss.  Repeat this process until you see that step {5} is directly to
the left and below step {4}.  It should be in-between steps {4} and {6}.

Now you should be finished.  The six steps should form a concentric spiraling
staircase down.  At the last step should be an orange doorway.  Jump down the
steps and go through it to grab the Ribbon from the treasure chest.

After grabbing the Ribbon, head back up to the third step {3} and take the
orange doorway there to go to the next area.

Climb the small pillar to grab the Ether x4 from the chest.  Continue on to
grab the Remedy x4 from the chest up on the left just after the slight ramp
down.  At the T-Fork, go to the right and step to the edge.  Take the lift
that appears across and follow the path to grab the Downtrodder Garment Grid.

Now head back to the T-Fork and go to the left this time and climb up both
pillars once.  Take the new bridge across to the next area.

After a brief scene you will be in a room with a large moving machine.  Go
all the way to the left past Ormi and grab the Phoenix Down x5 (Wow...).  Then
go back to where Ormi is and far behind him you will find a large glyph.  When
you step on it the large moving machine will stop.  Step on it again to start
it again.

In order to get the optional treasures, you need to wait until one of the
moving platform arms comes to the opening across from you where Ormi is
standing.  If the platform drops to where the very top of the platform thing
is just a little above the main floor, stop the machine.  When I say the top
platform, I don't mean the little platform sticking off the side of the
column, I mean the top of the column part attached to the arm that is in turn
attached to the main center pillar.

Here is a diagram of the device from the side:

                                                                              
     XX                                                                     
    X  X                                                                       
   X    X                                                                      
   X    XXXX      XXX <-- This                                                 
   X    X   XXX  X   X                                                         
   X    X      XXX   X                                                         
   X    X        X   X                                                         
   X    X        X   X                                                         
   X    X        X   XXXX <-- Not this                                         
   XXXXXX        XXXXX                                                         
                         XXXXXX GLYPH
                               XXXXXXX


So the part I have labelled as "This" needs to be just slightly above the main
floor.  You can then stop the device and run over to the pillar and jump up
onto it.  After jumping onto it, you will get a brief scene and Rikku will
stay down at the Glyph to operate the machine while Yuna runs around on it.
Now, you cannot start the machine while Yuna is on it.  So in order to get it
going you need to go out one of the arms and to a pillar and then jump off it
to one of the levels along the back wall.  When you jump off onto one of the
levels, you will need to press the "Square" button to tell Rikku to make the
machine move again.  Then you can stop it again when you are ready.

On the third level on the far left is a treasure chest containing Bloodlust.
On the bottom level to the right is a doorway leading to a treasure chest
containing a Wring.  To get to the bottom doorway, the two platforms in the
back need to be stopped where the one in the back left is at level 3 and the
one at the back right is at the doorway (bottom level, on right).

After you get the two items, head back to the main floor and go to the left
and follow the corridor on the left.  At the next screen you will come to a 
wall.  It will move away.  Continue going and you will come to three lifts.
Take the one on the right down first.  At the next level grab the Hi-Potion
from the treasure chest.  Then step climb up the two small blocks on this
level.  After that, walk all the way down on the screen.  This will take
you back to where the three lifts were however the one on the right is gone
now.

Then take the center lift up and climb up the block there.  This will raise
some blocks on a different screen.  Then take the lift back down and then take
the left lift down this time.  Now go to the right side of the screen and take
the right lift back up.  You will be back where the three lifts were but this
time the left lift will be missing.  Take the center lift up again and climb
up the block to raise some other blocks on a different screen again.  Now go
back down and then take the right lift back down to bottom.  Now go up to the
bridge and get on the last lift.  This will take you up to the next screen
where you were raising the blocks before.  Jump across them to grab the
Dark Knight Dressphere from the treasure chest!

Now go back across the blocks and save the game.  Prepare for a boss battle.

Follow the corridor along.  At the end of the bridge you will have to fight
a boss.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Baralai
  HP: 3380
  MP: 540
Weak: Poison, Darkness, Stop
 EXP: 1000

Normal Steal: Charm Bangle
  Rare Steal: Charm Bangle
 Normal Drop: Pearl Necklace
   Rare Drop: Pearl Necklace
 Dropped Gil: 1300
Pilfered Gil: 2000

Strategy:
        Baralai is extremely simple.  Just a token battle really.  He has a
few decent attacks like an explosive gun attack, however he should be simple.
He is very fast and will get a lot more attacks in than you are probably used
to.  A good strategy is to use two gunners and one white mage during this boss
fight.  Just keep hitting Trigger Happy with the two gunners and then use Pray
every round with the White Mage.  Revive and heal when needed.  You shouldn't
have any problems with this boss.

Continue on and prepare for another boss battle with an old, old friend.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Bahamut
  HP: 8400
  MP: 9999
Weak: ??
 EXP: 1000

Normal Steal: Mute Shock
  Rare Steal: Mute Shock
 Normal Drop: Gris-Gris Bag
   Rare Drop: Gris-Gris Bag
 Dropped Gil: 1000
Pilfered Gil: 2200

Strategy:
        This boss can cause you some problems.  The aeon Bahamut has some very
damaging spells.  Speed is the key to this battle.  Bahamut has a standard
punch attack that doesn't do much, however his Impulse attack does around
300-400 damage to all your characters.  Eventually Bahamut will start a
countdown starting at 5.  If he reaches 0 before you kill him, Bahamut will
unleash his Mega-Flare attack that will pretty much kill you.  So take him
down quick.  Now don't get too scared, using the strategy below, I took him
down when he was on 4.

A good strategy is to use two gunners and one white mage during this boss
fight.  Just keep hitting Trigger Happy with the two gunners and then use
Pray every round with the White Mage.  Revive and heal when needed.  You
shouldn't have any problems with this mini-boss.

       versions of this little machine (Watcher-A, Watcher-R, and Watcher-S).
       They look like Picket from the Bikanel desert.  This enemy watches
       what you do in battle and transmits it to an Boss later in the game.
       depending on what you use and how many times you use it, that skill
       or ability might get locked out of the Boss battle and you won't be
       able to use it.  So if you see one of these, use ONLY "Attack"
       against until it is destroyed.  After it is gone you can use what you
       want.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[141] -- Celsius -------------------------------------------------------------

At the start of this chapter you will be back onboard the Celsius after a
brief scene about fiends pouring out of all the temples in Spira.

If you payed off O'aka's debt you will see that he jumped ship and went back
to his travel agency at Lake Macalania.

Let's head back down to the engine room and grab the Ether x3, Remedy x5,
Hi-Potion x4, and Phoenix Down x6 from the four treasure chests.

Now head to the cabin and speak to Barkeep and rest.  After you wake up return
to the bridge and go to Luca.  If you want of course you can go directly to
one of the three new hotspots, but of course for the purposes of this 
walkthrough, we will be going to them last.

I sure hope you like Sphere Break or your time at Luca will be a painful one.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[142] -- Luca ----------------------------------------------------------------

When you arrive at Luca you will see that the Sphere Break tournament run by
Rin is in full swing.  You will receive 5 Reptile Coins, 5 Bird Coins, 5 Wasp
Coins, and 5 Ahriman Coins.

Once you get control back, head up the stairs and grab the Lunar Curtain x3
from the treasure chest in the grass at the first landing.

Now, let's head all the way to the Blitzball stadium area and down into the
locker room on the right.  You will notice that you cannot go to the docks
during this time as they are closed off.

Save the game at the save sphere there.  Now, the object of this part of the
game is to win 3 matches before losing 3 matches.  You can only play each
person once and each person has a varying level of difficulty.  There are 3
people around Luca that have the easiest level of difficulty. 

Now, it's time to go and find one of them.  The reason I told you to save at
the locker room is because it is the closest save to the first person and if
you lose you simply need to reset the game and try again.

The first person is just out front of the Blitzball stadium wearing a blue
dress.  You will know it is her by the name of her Core Sphere.

-----------------------------------
 Intimidator Core Sphere
-----------------------------------
     Turns: 15
     Quota: 20 coins
Time Limit: 60 seconds per turn
Difficulty: **
-----------------------------------

Just try and get a 2 or 3 coin count echo bonus going until you win.

For in-depth information on the game Sphere Break and the rules/strategies,
see the Sphere Break section of the mini-games portion of this FAQ.

After winning the match, return to the save sphere under the stadium and save
the game.

Then head back out and go towards the Luca square.  On the road leading
between the stadium and the square is an old man sitting down on the ground.
He's our mark.  Play him.

-----------------------------------
 Grandpa Core Sphere
-----------------------------------
     Turns: 15
     Quota: 20 coins
Time Limit: 60 seconds per turn
Difficulty: **
-----------------------------------

After you beat him, head towards the square and go up towards Mi'ihen Highroad.
Just before the last staircase leading to the Highroad is a save sphere.  Save
the game there.

Now head down to the square and find the guy wearing green and brown walking
around.  He's our last guy.

-----------------------------------
 Fresh Catch Core Sphere
-----------------------------------
     Turns: 15
     Quota: 20 coins
Time Limit: 60 seconds per turn
Difficulty: **
-----------------------------------

After you beat him you will immediately have to play in the finals against
Shinra.  This is kind of annoying because if you lose you have to reset and
play the guy again and then play Shinra again.  Trust me, it's worth trying
to beat Shinra now.  If you don't you can't get the Lady Luck Dressphere
until Chapter 5.

-----------------------------------
 Shinra Core Sphere
-----------------------------------
     Turns: 15
     Quota: 50 coins
Time Limit: 45 seconds per turn
Difficulty: ****
-----------------------------------

So you can see he is more difficult.  The best way to defeat him is to go for
a 3 coin count echo bonus.  Unfortunately Shinra's core sphere throws the 
number 1 often and automatically kills your echo bonus.  Just hope you get
lucky and he throws it early and not again for a long time.  It took me 4
tries to win against him.  See the Sphere Break section of the Mini-Games
portion of this FAQ for more information on Sphere Break and getting a 3 coin
count echo bonus.

After you defeat him, you will get the Lady Luck Dressphere!

Now head back to the airship.  I had enough money laying around that I went
to the movie/music theater and bought all the available movie and music
sphere while I was in Luca.  It's up to you.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[143] -- Mi'ihen Highroad ----------------------------------------------------

*Note: Chapter 3 introduces an enemy called the "Watcher".  There are three
       versions of this little machine (Watcher-A, Watcher-R, and Watcher-S).
       They look like Picket from the Bikanel desert.  This enemy watches
       what you do in battle and transmits it to an Boss later in the game.
       depending on what you use and how many times you use it, that skill
       or ability might get locked out of the Boss battle and you won't be
       able to use it.  So if you see one of these, use ONLY "Attack"
       against until it is destroyed.  After it is gone you can use what you
       want.

Return to Luca via the airship and head up the steps to Mi'ihen Highroad.  A
man will approach you and tell you about the machina going out of control.
You will get a new mission to incapacitate 13 tandems of machina.

This mission is basically running along the entire highroad and whenever you
see a machina onscreen pestering a pedestrian, run up to it and fight it.
Random encounters on the highroad do not count.  The number of machina you
fight does not matter.  There are also Al Bhed running around taking out
machina as well and after 13 total machina have been destroyed, the mission
will end.  You don't have to beat them unless you want to.

At the start of the highroad there is a chest containing Phoenix Down x4.  Now
head along the highroad and grab the 2000 gil from the chest on the left. 
Near that chest will be the first machina.  Take it out and continue along.
Grab the Hypno Crown from the chest up on the left behind the structure.  Keep
going to the next screen.  There will be a chest containing Hi-Potion x2 on
left.  Then go to the next screen and grab the Holy Water x4 on the left. 
Then grab the Hi-Potion x4 up on the right.

You should then run across your next machina.  Take it out and continue on
and you will run across another machina.  Get rid of it and keep moving. 
There will be a Hi-Potion x2 up on the right in a treasure chest.  At the next
screen there will be a chest up on the left just past the travel agency
containing Eye Drops x3.

At the next screen grab the Soft x4 at the start on the left.  Then keep going
to the next screen and grab the Phoenix Down x4 near the next machina.  Then
take out the machina and keep going to the next screen.  Grab the S-Bomb x2
from the treasure chest on the right at the start of the screen.  Then take
the right fork down to the next screen.  Grab the Ether x2 on the path.

Then at next screen go to the left over to where the hover vehicle is and take
out the next machina.  Then grab the Echo Screen x4 from the treasure chest.
Save the game and heal at the save sphere.  Now head down the path and grab
the Hi-Potion x2 up on the ledge to the right.

Now go all the way down the path to the end and take out the last machina.
You should now have 7 and the Al Bhed will have 6 bringing the total to 13
machina.

** Mission Complete! **

You will receive 10,000 gil and the Undying Storm Garment Grid.

You will then be back onboard the Celsius.  Take the time to switch to using
the Undying Storm Garment Grid.  It's a great grid.  It automatically boosts
your Strength and Magic +15 and each gate has either a STR+15 or MAG+15 on it.
This is better than the previous Bum Rush Garment Grid that we equipped (+5
over the Bum Rush and +10 over the Vanguard).

Now let's head to Mushroom Rock Road.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[144] -- Mushroom Rock Road --------------------------------------------------

Head to Mushroom Rock Road via the airship.  You will see that the Youth
League Headquarters has been barricaded.  So just speak to Yaibal and Lucil to
get some quick percentage points.

Now head up along the road and take the left fork to the lift.  Take the lift
up and grab the 2000 gil from the treasure chest behind the statue.  Now take
the lift back down and head up the path to the next screen towards Djose
Highroad.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[145] -- Djose Highroad ------------------------------------------------------

Speak to the Al Bhed and take a ride to the end of the road.  Then take the up
fork towards Djose Temple.  Grab the Hi-Potion x3 on the left and head up to
the next screen to the temple.  Once at the temple screen, grab the Phoenix
Down x3 from the treasure chest on the right.

Then approach the temple and speak to Gippal.  After a brief scene you will
receive an Al Bhed Primer.

Now head back down to the crossroads at Djose Highroad and take the upleft
fork towards the Moonflow.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[146] -- Moonflow ------------------------------------------------------------

Follow the road all the way up until you see the band playing on top of a
wagon and speak to Tobli standing there watching it.  After you speak to him
and you have control back speak to him again.  Yes, that means you need to 
speak to him TWICE.

Now keep going down the road and take the shoopuff across the lake and follow
the road along until you get to Guadosalam.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[147] -- Guadosalam ----------------------------------------------------------

Once you enter the city go up and try to get into the mysterious house you
can't get into for a quick little scene about it.  Then head back down to
Leblanc's Chateau and talk to the goons out front.  Then go inside the Chateau
and enter the door on the lower level and speak to Logos and Ormi.

After the brief scene with Logos and Ormi, head upstairs to Leblanc's room and
go inside and talk to Leblanc.  When you get control back go downstairs and
into the lower level room again where Logos and Ormi were.  They will tell you
about a sphere they have and to meet them in Logos room.

So go up and into the secret passage.  At the save sphere hang a left and go
into the room with the large blue sphere in it.  Grab the Tetra Band from the
treasure chest and then climb up onto the crates on the left side of the room.
You should reach a little balcony.  Follow it over to the right and grab the
Crimson Sphere 4 from the treasure chest.

Now go back to the save sphere and take a right past Ormi's room to go to
Logos room.  Once there you will see a scene that is kind of funny.  You will
then get Logos's Sphere and Ormi's Sphere.  If you talk to Logos again he will
mention something about another sphere.  Go over to the dresser on the right
side of the room and grab it.  While you are watching the movie with the
person who looks like Tidus in it, Maechen sneaks in.  You will receive the
Gaol Sphere.

Talk to Maechen again to get the rest of the story.  After you are done, head
back out of the secret passage and out of the Cheateau.  Then head down the
path towards the Thunder Plains and save the game just before entering.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[148] -- Thunder Plains ------------------------------------------------------

Use caution in this area.  I would suggest saving at the first sphere or
before you get here.  There are Marlboro's here in this area and they can kill
you very easily if you don't know they are coming.

When you reach the Thunder Plains, head along the plains until you see Cid on
the left near a small pond.  Speak to him and he will apologize to Yuna.

Grab the Echo Screen x5 up on the left, the Hi-Potion x2 on the right, and
then the Safety Bit towards the end of the screen on the left.

Take the fork on the right and grab the Phoenix Down x3 from the chest on the
next screen.  Keep going and grab the Dark Grenade x2 from the chest on the
right.  Then head over to the left of the screen where the shelter is.

Speak to Lian and Ayde who are there.  They will ask you where they should
search for a way to fix Kimahri's horn.  The choices are Djose Temple,
Moonflow, or Kilika Island.  Pick one, it doesn't matter.  This just determines
where you will see them later on in chapter 4.  I chose Kilika Island.

Now head on up and grab the Ether x3 on the left.  Then head up to Macalania
Woods.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[149] -- Macalania Woods -----------------------------------------------------

Once at Macalania Woods, head up and take the glitter bridge along and at the
first fork on the glitter bridge take the up fork to grab the Gold Bracer from
the treasure chest.  Then head back to the fork and go to the left.  Follow it
around and down to the next screen.  This is the familiar X crossroads.  Take
the up fork to the left to Lake Macalania.

This will start a new mission to win six consecutive battles.  Betweem each
fight you can quit or continue, however if you quit you have to start over.
So always choose "Fight" instead of "Flee" unless you can't hack it.

I would suggest having a White Mage in the party and two attackers.  Now there
are three different battles and you will have to do them twice giving you six
battles in all.

I'm not sure about the order, but here are the battles as I received them:

1. 1 Ryhos, 1 Vertigo
2. 3 Barbuta
3. 1 Barbuta, 2 Flan Blanco

Now the only battle you should have trouble with is the one with the Ryhos and
the Vertigo.  The Ryhos can cast Thundaga against all your party for around
400-500 damage each!  As well as using Aqua Breath which damages all your
characters.  The strongest attack it will do is the Chaos Flame that could
kill one of your characters in a single attack for around 1200-1500 damage.

So heal/revive every round with you white mage and attack with the others.

The other two battles are easy and you can use them to heal up your characters
while you are fighting them.  After them, the cycle repeats once.

** Mission Complete! **

You will receive the Pride of the Sword Garment Grid.
You will receive the Berserker Dressphere.
You will also receive an Al Bhed Primer.

The Pride of the Sword is a great garment grid with 6 slots, as well as +15
Strength.  It also allows any character with it equipped to access all there
Swordplay abilities as well.  After all gates are passed, your Swordplay wait
goes down also.  This is a good grid for a character who has their Warrior
Dressphere maxed out.  The only downside is that you don't get access to
the Warrior's commands as well, only abilities.

After you complete the mission you will see a scene with O'aka.  After you
get control back, grab the X-Potion from the chest on the left outside the
agency.

Go back inside the agency and save the game and return to the airship.  Now
let's head to Bikanel Desert.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[150] -- Bikanel Desert ------------------------------------------------------

Upon entering the Bikanel Desert, you will get a brief scene.  After you get
control back, speak to the Pilot and have him take you to the Cactuar Nation.

This will start a scene with you talking to the Cacti Mother Marnela.  When
the question comes up, choose "That makes perfect sense!" to advance the
story.  When you get control back, talk to the cactus again and she will tell
you about Great Haboob, the Ten Gatekeepers, Cactuar Mothers and then you will
get a new mission to find the Ten Gatekeepers.

Now at this point in the game you can only find 6 of them.  The others aren't
available until chapter 5.

To start with your first gatekeeper, find the mother that is awake.  Mothers
that are awake have green waves of light around them like Marnela has.  The
others are all asleep.  After you find one of the Gatekeepers and return it,
another Mother will wake up.  So you have to do them one at a time in order.

Find the mother that is awake (green square on the map).  She will tell you
she is Lobivia's mother and that he was supposed to head north from the Oasis
with his friends.

Return to your hover and go back to camp.  Then talk to the pilot and go to 
the Oasis.  Find Lobivia (the green cactuar on the left).  Now in order to get
one of the gatekeepers you have to play a little mini-game with each one.

The screen will split into 2 vertical panes.  The one on the left will have
three pictures flipping through it.  1 of them will be Lobivia.  The object
is to shoot him when he pops up.  Sometimes you will miss.  The best way to
win is if you do manage to shoot him once, he will spin off the screen for 
moment and come back to the center of his pane.  When he comes back near the
center, shoot again.  Repeat this process until you miss.  Then do it again
until you reduce his life to zero.

Here are his stats:

----------------
Lobivia         |
----------------|
      HP:   10  |
Strength: 3/10  |
 Agility: 2/10  |
----------------

After you win you will return to the mother.  Then talk to the next mother.
She will be the mother of Toumeya.  She says he went to waters vaster than
our Oasis with white sandy beaches.  Sounds like Besaid Island right?  Yep.

Instead of going to Besaid for now, we will be going to Bevelle.  Return to
the airship and let's head to Bevelle.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[151] -- Bevelle -------------------------------------------------------------

When you reach Bevelle, watch Shinra deploy his Comm Sphere and then talk to
everyone there.  Then head back to the airship.  Now let's go to the Calm
Lands.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[152] -- Calm Lands ----------------------------------------------------------

Select "Mission 2" from airship map for the Calm Lands.  Go and talk to Clasko
and then head up to the upper level of the Chocobo Ranch so Shinra will deploy
his Comm Sphere there.  Then go back to the airship and select "Mission 1"
from the airship map menu for the Calm Lands.

You should now be out front of the old Cavern of the Stolen Fayth.  Walk up to
the cave and offer to help.  This will start a new mission to save the 13
tourists from the cave.

Here is a map of the cave:

   To Calm Lands


Now, use the map to find all 15 people.  You can only get the first 13 people
at once however because you need the "Energy Core's" the people will give you
to activate the teleporters and give you access to the last 2 people.

You must go in the order of the numbers on the map starting with 1 and going
to 13 if you want to get all 13 of them at one time.  Otherwise you will have
to lead them out in smaller groups.  It doesn't make any difference as far
as the story, items receive, or completion percentage goes as to how you do
it.

After you get the first 13 people, lead them back to the entrance.  You will
get the Besaid Key and 6 Energy Core's.  Go outside and talk to the guy in
front of the cave wearing green to get the 7th Energy Core.  Now go back
inside and step on the teleport pad near the entrance.  Go to the back of the
cave.

Now, on the teleport pad at the back of the cave, press right -> to get the
arrow to point that direction and go there.  You will find the 14th person
and some treasure.  Now go back to the teleport and then teleport again to
the entrance.  You will get the 8th Energy Core.  Now step back on the
teleport pad to go back to the back of the cave again and this time go to
the <- left.  Grab the treasure and get the 15th and final person and take
them back to the cave entrance via the teleporters.

Now, go outside the cave and go to save the game.  It will ask you if you
want to quit the mission.  Say "Yes" to quit.  Then go and heal/save and
prepare for a difficult boss battle.  When you are ready return to the cave
and teleport to the back of the cave.  Then on that teleport pad, teleport
up ^ to where the boss is. 

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Yojimbo
  HP: 22000
  MP: 9999
Weak: ??
 EXP: 2000

Normal Steal: Power Wrist
  Rare Steal: Power Wrist
 Normal Drop: Recovery Bracer
   Rare Drop: Recovery Bracer
 Dropped Gil: 1500
Pilfered Gil: 2000

Strategy:
        This boss can be extremely difficult to defeat depending on what
level you are at.  The aeon Yojimbo inflicts poison often.  While this is
not particularly devastating by itself, it kills you instantly when your
HP is only at 1.  We'll get to that in a second.  First, make sure you
equip a Ribbon, Glass Buckle, or some other poisonproof accessory on each
character so that they won't get poisoned.  Trust me, you'll need it.

Now, all but one of Yojimbo and Daigoro's (his pet dog) attacks will be
fairly weak.  However his ultimate attack is called Zanmato.  It
automatically reduces all three of you characters HP and MP to 1.  Now you
can easily tell when Yojimbo is about to perform this move because before
he does it he will put his hand up in front of his face, covering it
partially.  When you see this, stop whatever you are doing and start
throwing Hi-Potions, healing spells, etc. at everyone.  If you have a White
Mage in your party I would throw the healing items and ethers at her with
the other two characters and use her to cast Curaga on all three characters.

If Daigoro manages to jump in and kill one of your characters before they
are healed (which he often annoyingly does), quickly toss a Phoenix Down
at them to revive them.  You don't need to be anywhere near full health
at any time during this battle.  It's useless.  Just stay at a decent level
so as not to get killed by the weaker attacks.

Now, you could also throw a Mega Phoenix at your party when you see Yojimbo
is about to perform Zanmato, but I prefer to save such items.

Also, if you are using a White Mage in your party, you can cast Regen on
everyone before your MP is reduced to try and help them from getting killed by
Daigoro.

White Mage's are weak during this battle since their MP gets reduced to 1 every
few moves, so by the time you use and Ether to build it up, it's quickly back
down to 1.

A good strategy is to use two or three gunners or two gunners and an alchemist,
warrior, etc.  Just keep hitting Trigger Happy with the gunners.

** Mission Complete! **

You will receive the Tetra Master Garment Grid.

After defeating Yojimbo, return to the Calm Lands by selecting "Mission 1"
on the airship.  This will take you to the travel agency in the center of
the Calm Lands.  Leave the agency by foot and you should see Shinra run up
and drop a Comm Sphere.  Head to the left edge of the Calm Lands to grab some
Sprint Shoes from a Treasure chest.

Now head all the way back to the right side and grab the Mega Phoenix from a
chest on your way back to Yojimbo's cave.  On the next screen heading towards
Mt. Gagazet, grab the Hi-Potion x2 from the chest just across the small
bridge.  Then head back a little and under the bridge towards Yojimbo's.  Go
inside the cave and teleport to the back of the cave and back to where you
fought Yojimbo and grab the Star Bracer from the treasure chest inside.

Then teleport back to the entrance and head back up and across the bridge to
Mt. Gagazet.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[153] -- Mt. Gagazet ---------------------------------------------------------

Upon entering Mt. Gagazet you will see Shinra run off and set the Comm Sphere
up.  Approach Kimahri and speak to him.  After a brief scene you will get the
Trainer Dressphere (only if you answered his questions correctly in chapter 1
and 2 earlier in the game).  Choose "Let's go" to start a new mission to climb
to the top of the mountain and stop Garik's attack.

Now, since I just received a new dressphere and I had just maxed out a
dressphere with all three of my characters, I decided to try out the Trainer
Dressphere.  So what I did was I equipped one of my characters with the Lure
Bracer to increase my random encounters during my entire climb up Mt.
Gagazet.  So by the time I reached the summit I had some decent trainer
abilities.  The Trainer Dressphere is quite unique and I like it a lot.  Each
character has a different pet.  Yuna has a dog similar to what Yojimbo has.
Rikku has a monkey, and Paine has a bird.  They are very powerful and have
a great variety of spells to use.  Paine has HP Flurry that heals all in my
party for 1500-2000 each.  This is like Curaga and it only uses 10 MP.  They
also have an ability that reduces MP cost by 1/2 so you can get more out of
your MP.  See the dresspheres section of this FAQ for more info about the
Trainer Dressphere, but needless to say, with 3 Trainers in my party I had no
trouble going up Mt. Gagazet.

If you step on the teleport pad at the start you will find that the
teleporter pads have been turned off.  In order to reactivate them you will
have the climb the mountain on foot and step on the destination pad to
activate it.

Climb up the mountain until you reach the first teleport pad.  Step on it to
activate it and teleport down.  At the screen with Kimahri, save and heal up.
Then take the teleport back to the newly activated Mountain Path.

Continue climbing the mountain until you reach the cliffs that you climbed
previously when you followed the Syndicate woman to the hot springs.  If you
missed any items the first time through the Mt. Gagazet Ruins during the chase
scene up the mountain after Leblanc, then you can climb all the way up the
cliffs to revisit the ruins.

If you didn't miss anything, then continue going up the mountain path.  When
you enter the large cavern, step on the second teleport pad and return to the
Mountain Gate.  Save and heal and the return to the newly activated Fayth
Scar.

Keep going up through the cavern, up the steps and then hang a left and go up
the rock steps along the left wall.  At the top will be the final teleport
pad near a save sphere.  Step on it to activate it.  Then save and heal at the
save sphere and continue going up the mountain path.  At the next screen will
be a boss battle.


-- Boss Battle --
Name: Garik Ronso, Ronso Youth (x2)
  HP: 6880, 4060
  MP: 238, 170
Weak: ??
 EXP: 380, 220

Normal Steal: Icy Gleam, Mythril Bangle
  Rare Steal: Icy Gleam, Mythril Bangle
 Normal Drop: Shining Bracer, Remedy
   Rare Drop: Shining Bracer, Remedy x2
 Dropped Gil: 90, 20
Pilfered Gil: 130, 60

Strategy:
        Depending on your answers earlier in the game to the Ronso your trust
level with the Ronso will be either high or low.  If the trust is low then
Garik will have 2 Ronso Youth with him.  Garik himself will also be stronger
and will cast Mighty Guard.  If your trust is high, Garik will be weaker and
will not use Mighty Guard.  He will also only have 1 Ronso Youth with him.

This battle is hardly a battle.  Just attack and heal.  Not much strategy
needed here.  Just make sure you steal the items from them before you kill
them off.

I went into this battle at level 46 with all three of my characters using the
Trainer Dressphere.  I had to try not to kill them in order to steal the items
from them.

** Mission Complete! **

You will receive the Wishbringer Garment Grid.

You will then be back onboard the Celsius.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[154] -- Zanarkand Ruins -----------------------------------------------------

Enter Zanarkand Ruins via the airship and you will see Shinra run off.  Follow
the path all the way to the temple.  Make sure you grab the Dispel Tonic x2
from the branch off the circular platform and the Phoenix Down x3 from the
treasure chest just before the circular doorway.

When you enter the hallway leading to the temple dome, grab the Hi-Potion x3
from the chest on the left.  Then grab the S-Bomb x2 on the right.  Then talk
to Isaaru who should be standing in your way.

After speaking to him, grab the Stamina Spring from the chest on the right and
the Remedy x2 up further on the right.  Inside the temple grab the Lunar
Curtain x2 on the left and the Mana Spring x2 at the top right.  At the next
screen grab the Light Curtain x2 from the bottom right and the 2000 gil from
the chest at the top left.

Now take the lift down and continue going to grab the Mythril Bangle, Phoenix
Down x3, Hi-Potion x3, Remedy x4, Remedy x4, and Ether x3 from the room with
the six treasure chests.  Then head to the nearest save sphere and return to
the airship.  Now it's time to go to Besaid Island.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[155] -- Besaid Island -------------------------------------------------------

Head to Besaid via the airship.  Enter the village and go inside the second
hut on the right and speak to Lulu.  Then leave the hut and you will see a 
scene with Shinra and the Comm Sphere.  Then after a scene with Wakka and
Beclam, enter the temple and speak to Beclam standing at the main steps.

This will start a new mission to protect Besaid temple and purge all the
fiends from it.  Now, in the door to the right of the main steps is a chest
you should now be able to open after getting the Besaid Key.  It contains a
Search Sphere.  You don't need to get it now however so ignore it.

Enter the Cloister of Trials through the main steps entrance.  Just follow the
path along until you see Wakka.  To the right of Wakka is a wall you can walk
through at the fork.  Go through it and grab the Mana Spring x2.  Then talk
to Wakka.

When you are ready, heal up and prepare for a boss fight.  Take the lift down
and walk forward to the next screen.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Valefor
  HP: 8430
  MP: 9999
Weak: ??
 EXP: 1500

Normal Steal: Healing Spring x4
  Rare Steal: Healing Spring x4
 Normal Drop: Moon Bracer
   Rare Drop: Moon Bracer
 Dropped Gil: 1200
Pilfered Gil: 1500

Strategy:
        This battle should be extremely easy considering we've just come from
battling Bahamut and Yojimbo.  Valefor's Energy Ray attack does about 300
damage to all and it's regular attack does about 300 to one character.

Just attack Valefor until it goes down.  It should be very easy.
 
--

** Mission Complete! **

Now, return to Besaid and go back to the temple and go inside the room on the
right to grab the Search Sphere from the treasure chest inside.

Now, to use the Search Sphere simply hold down the "O" button and a bar will
slide out to the left of the Search Sphere visible in the bottom right corner
of your screen.  It's basically a hot and cold game.  As you get closer to 
one of the Comm Sphere looking items you are trying to find, the gauge will
fill up.  If you are really close it will fill and start filling red at the
end of the gauge.  If the blue sphere itself turns red or blinks red, then you
are standing directly on the spot where you need to dig.  At that point press
the "X" button and you will dig up the item.

To find the first sphere, go outside and go to the left side of the village.
Between to the two huts on the left is a little alcove.  Go all the way to the
back of the alcove and the sphere is just to the right of the very back of the
alcove.  Find it and dig it up.  Once you have done that, use the sphere
laying on the ground and look through it.  Use it to look over at the temple
and at the top of the temple in a bell tower looking thing should be a green
sphere with the first number on it.  Zoom in on it to see the number clearer.
The numbers are random so I can't tell you what you will have.  I can only
tell you the location since what I get will be different from what you may
see.

Now leave the village to the first screen with the save sphere just outside
the village and walk over directly to the left of the save sphere and just in
front of Letty who is stretching.  Find and dig up the sphere there and look
through it over at the top of the cliffside to the right.  On top of the
cliffs is a green sphere with the second number on it.

Now continue going up the path to the main path after the screen with the
large red ruins on it.  The path I am talking about is the one with the
waterfalls on it.  Hug the right side of the path and before the first bridge
will be the next sphere.  Dig it up and look at the waterfall on the far
right.  Near the top of it is a ledge sticking out.  The next sphere is
sitting on the far left side of that small ledge.  It is a green sphere with
the third number on it.

Now go to the first bridge and drop down under it by falling down to the left
of the bridge and grab the Moon Bracer from the chest.  Now go back up and
follow the path over towards the beach.  When you reach the screen with the
cipher door, go to the right to the next screen that is a small alcove
overlooking a large body of water.  The sphere is at the edge of the cliff in
the top left corner.  Dig it up and look across the water to the top of the
cliffs.  All the way to the right is a palm tree.  The green sphere with the
fourth number on it is sitting on top of the palm tree.

Now return to the cipher door and go inside.  At the fork go to the right and
touch the control on the wall.  Enter the code starting with the first number
(the one closest to Besaid Village).  This will open the door.  Go through it
and follow the winding path.  Grab the Ether x3 from the chest on the path.  
Eventually you will go outside and be up on the cliffs where you saw the
treasure chest earlier in the game through the Treasure Map treasure sphere. 
Follow the cliff all the way to the left and grab the Raging Giant Garment
Grid.  Yep, that's it.  Lame.

Now go back to the fork inside the cipher door cave.  Go to the left and then
left again at the next fork to grab the Hi-Potion x2 from the chest.  Then go
back to the fork and go up and across the rocks to save the game.

Now head to the beach and at the first screen with the sand on it, climb up
the ledge on the left before you reach were Beclam is standing.  Climb up to
the far top right part of this area and you should then be able to drop down
into a little alcove that you were able to swim to in Final Fantasy X.

Grab the X-Potion and the 2500 gil from the two chest there and then climb
back up and return to the beach.

Go all the way to the far end of the beach and grab the green Cactuar stuck
in the sand.  This is Toumeya.

Here are his stats:

----------------
Toumeya         |
----------------|
      HP:   10  |
Strength: 3/10  |
 Agility: 3/10  |
----------------

After you catch him return to the Celsius and then go to Bikanel Desert.
Return  to the Cactuar Nation and talk to the Mother (green square on map).

Find the next Mother (green square on map).  This is Lobeira's Mother.  She
says he's in a treasure box in a sphere hunters house.  This refers to a
treasure box in Ormi's room at the Chateau Leblanc.  So let's go there now.

Return to Guadosalam and go into the secret passage to Ormi's room.  Open the
box that is moving in Ormi's room.  This is Lobeira.

Here are his stats:

----------------
Lobeira         |
----------------|
      HP:   12  |
Strength: 7/10  |
 Agility: 2/10  |
----------------

After you get Lobeira, return him to his Mother and find the next one.  It
will be Areq & Arroja's Mother.  She says they are putting off seeing the
snow to play with some yellow birds.  This refers to the Calm Lands at the
base of Mt. Gagazet.  So let's head to Mt. Gagazet.

When you reach Mt. Gagazet via the ariship, go down towards the Calm Lands.
On the next screen on the other side of the bridge you will see a chocobo
walking around with 2 Cactuars riding around on it.  They are Areq & Arroja.

Here are their stats:

----------------
Areq & Arroja   |
----------------|
      HP:   16  |
Strength: 6/10  |
 Agility: 4/10  |
----------------

Return them to their Mother and talk to the next Mother.  She will tell you
about Islaya.  Islaya is at the Thunder Plains.

Go to the Maclania Woods via the airship and go down to the Thunder Plains
from there.  When you enter the Thunder Plains keep going down until you
reach the shelter on the left.  Islaya is directly across from the shelter
to the right side of the screen.

Here are his stats:

----------------
Islaya          |
----------------|
      HP:   12  |
Strength: 6/10  |
 Agility: 5/10  |
----------------

Return him to his Mother and speak to the next Mother.  She will tell you
about Chiapa but will tell you to leave him alone for now.  So we can't
continue this quest again until chapter 5.

So let's head to Kilika Island.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[156] -- Kilika Island -------------------------------------------------------

Enter Kilika Island via the airship.  Jump across the boat on the left and
grab the Ether from the chest.  Hop back across and then hop across the boat
up across from the barking dog to grab the Mana Tablet x2 from the chest.
Then hop back across and continue into the village.  Take the second set of
steps you come to on the left and follow the path around to get the Antidote
x3 from the chest.  Now go across the bridge to the right and grab the Eye
Drops x3 from the chest along the path.

Continue going along the upper level path until you reach the end where the
stairs are going down.  Go down the steps and grab the Phoenix Down x2 from
the treasure chest.  Circle around to the left and talk to the Squatter Monkey
lady to get the Chaos Maelstrom Garment Grid.  You will only get this item
if you successfully found all 13 monkey's in Kilika Woods earlier in the game.
If you didn't get them earlier, don't worry, you can get them later in chapter
5.

Now go all the way back to where you first went up the second set of steps
you came to upon entering the village.  This time go up along the lower path
to the next screen.  At the next screen go up the steps and then up the steps
on the left and go inside Dona's house.  After a brief scene go upstairs
and grab the 2000 gil from the chest outside.  Then go back down and leave
the house.

Choose "Not now" to the question.  Go back behind the house next to Dona's
to grab the Light Curtain x2 from the chest there.  Then go down a little and
cross the bridge to the far right side of town.  Grab the Lunar Curtain x2
from the chest near the guy with the telescope/camera thing.  Then talk to the
guy with the telescope/camera thing and take a look at the Youth League 
Headquarters.  Now follow the path up towards the Kilika Woods gate.  Take the
stairs up on the right first and grab the Star Curtain from the treasure
chest.  Then go back down the steps and then up towards the gate to grab the
Holy Water x3 from the chest on the lower level.

Now go all the way back to the start of Kilika Island and save the game at the
save sphere there.  You want to save the game because you only get one chance
to sneak past the guards at the gate.  If you successfully sneak through then
you will get the Bushido Lore accessory that allows you to use Bushido
abilities without having the Samurai Dressphere equipped.

When you are ready, head to the gate at the far end of the town.  Dona will be
distracting one of the guards.  Simply approach the gate to start the
sequence.

      To Kilika                            To Kilika                           

Now, there are 3 different views you can use to see the guards.

1. This is the default view.  You can see Yuna, G1, and G2 in the same view.
2. You can see G3 and Dona.
3. You can see G1 and G2.

When this part begins you can choose to either practice or try the real thing.
When you are ready, here is the strategy.

Use view 1 until you see a youth league member approach G1.  G1 will tell G2
to open the gate.  G2 will say "Yes sir!".  After saying that G2 will walk
over to [B] on the diagram to open the gate following the path (...) I have
put on the diagram.  When G2 reaches the @ on the diagram quickly use "R1" to
switch to view 2.  Then wait for the sound of the gate opening (a clanking
sound).  If you don't ever hear a sound then it's because you switched to view
2 too soon.  Make sure G2 is at the @ before switching.

Now keep your eye on G3 and as soon as you hear the sound of the gate opening
if G3 is looking directly at Dona, then press "X" to make a run for it.  You
only have about 1-2 seconds from the time you hear the sound of the gate
opening to the time you press "X", so if G3 is looking at the gate during
those 1 or 2 seconds, you need to wait until the next time.

If you couldn't press "X" because G3 was watching, return to view 1 and repeat
the process.  You will notice that we did not use view 3.  You don't need it.

During my game I was unable to sneak in during the first two youth league 
members that approached the gate because G3 was always looking.  But everytime
I was able to sneak in on the third person.  I am not sure if it will be the
same for you, but the key to this is patience.  Follow my method and you will
get in everytime.

If you mess up and get caught, reset your game and try again.  Otherwise you
will miss the Bushido Lore accessory.

When you make it through grab the Bushido Lore from the chest at the end of
the bridge.  Head toward the woods or back to the gate (it doesn't matter) and
after a scene you will be in the woods.

                               To Kilika Village


Use the map to find the three barricades.  Run up to all three of them to see
the little scene for each.  After you have done that, go to the X on the map
and look around and try to climb up around there.  That will trigger a
sequence of the girls clmbing up into the treetops and you will come out at
the steps leading up to the temple.

Head up the steps and you will get a scene and then a new mission to stop the
fiends pouring out of the temple.  Go inside the temple and you will see some
large machina.  To the right of the stairs leading to the Cloister of Trials
is a save sphere partially obscured by the machina.  Use this save sphere to
heal and save.

Now go inside and take the lift down.  Follow the path and go through the
door to get a scene.  Take out the Daeva that attacks you.  You will then get
a scene with Barthello.  When you get control back, run up to the blue flame
blocking your path and touch it.  Take out the next Daeva that attacks you.
The blue flame blocking your path will go out.

Continue deeper into the temple to the room with three blue flames.  Touch the
flame on the right wall and take out the Daeva.  Then touch the one on the
left and take out the next Daeva.  Then touch the center one and take out the
Daeva.

Go through the door that opens and take out the next two Daeva's that attack
you.  After the flames go out, go down the steps and grab the Samurai
Dressphere laying on the ground.  Then go up the steps and then up the next
set of steps through the doorway.  You will get a scene and a boss battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Ifrit
  HP: 8820
  MP: 9999
Weak: Ice
 EXP: 1800

Normal Steal: Fiery Gleam
  Rare Steal: Fiery Gleam
 Normal Drop: Angel Earrings
   Rare Drop: Angel Earrings
 Dropped Gil: 1300
Pilfered Gil: 1800

Strategy:
        This battle should be extremely easy considering we've just come from
battling Bahamut and Yojimbo.  Ifrit's Meteor attack does about 500 damage
to one character.

Just attack Ifrit until it goes down.  It should be very easy.

** Mission Complete! **

You will be taken back to the Celsius.  Let's head to Bevelle for a bit of the
story.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[157] -- Bevelle -------------------------------------------------------------

Head to Bevelle via the airship.  You will see a brief scene where you see
Gippal.  Follow the path all the way up and enter the main door.  Keep going
and enter the temple door.  Take the main lift up and go outside via the door
on the balcony.

Walk along outside to the right and talk to the first man to get the
Electrocutioner accessory.  Then continue over and talk to the second man to
get the Hypno Crown.  Now all the way at the end is Baralai's lift.  If you
touch this it will toggle between red/blue and will be either direct or not.

If the lift is red then the main lift in the main hall will be set to direct
mode and will take you directly to the area with the hole you jump down into.
If it is blue it will take you to the normal area with the moving sidewalks.

Let's set it to direct mode.  Then head back and take the main lift back
down.  Get off and go to the left room and touch the blue lift obelisk behind
the wall at the bottom side of the screen to set the direction of the lift
to go down.  Then go back and take the main lift again.  This time it will
take you to the area with the hole.

Get off the lift and go to the right to the screen with the save sphere and
you will see Gippal again.  Grab the Chocobo Feather x2 from the chest in that
room.  Then save the game.  Now instead of going to the hole, head back to the
left and at the screen with the lift, go down the steps and take the other
lift down.  You will be at the moving sidewalks screen.

After you get all the treasure chests, head back to LB and take the lift to
the next level.  Head to the right and save the game.  Now go to the right
and hop down into the hole.  Head over to the top right and slide down the
chain to the main platform.

Grab the treasure from this area.  If you missed the item earlier in the game
off the 6th step then you can get it now.  See the Bevelle section earlier
in this FAQ to see how to set the steps up correctly.

Hop down to the third step and go through the orange doorway.  Follow the path
and grab the Ether x5 from the chest on top of the pillar.  Continue going and
grab the Remedy x5 from the chest at the bottom left of the slight ramp
leading down. 

At the fork in the road, take a left and hop on top of both pillars.  Go
across the newly formed bridge to the next screen.  At the far left of the 
screen with the large moving machine, grab the Phoenix Down x6.  If you missed
any items using the machine earlier you can get them now.

Take the path to the left and follow the corridor.  The wall blocking your way
will move away.  Head up to the area with the three lifts.  Take the lift on
the right down.  Grab the Remedy from the chest.  Then climb up the two small
blocks near you.  Take the lift to the north up to the next area.  If you
missed the Dark Knight Dressphere earlier you can get it now, however see that
section earlier in this FAQ for how to do it.

Save the game.

Now continue following the corridor and when you reach the room where Vegnagun
was you will get a very interesting scene with Meyvn Nooj, Baralai, and
Gippal.  You will then be attacked by a Marlboro.  Take it out quickly.  After
you defeat it you will see a short scene.  When you finally get control back
grab the Crimson Sphere 1 off the ground.  Then head back to a save sphere
and return to the airship.

Onboard the Celsius talk to Shinra and watch the Crimson Record 1 for more
story.

Now before you head to Djose Temple, our last destination in Chapter 3, make
sure you have completed what you need to get done regarding the bride quest
and the publicity campaign for the Calm Lands.  You should try and get at least
400 publicity points before you head to Djose Temple.  You won't be able to do
much during Chapter 4, so you must have it done during this chapter.  During
Chapter 5 you will get your rewards for all your hard work.

Now let's head to Djose Temple.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[158] -- Djose Temple --------------------------------------------------------

Head to Djose Temple via the airship.  You will get a scene and a new mission
to liberate the temple.  You will also receive an Al Bhed Primer.

Be careful when entering the temple because there are fiends called "Tomb"
inside that use "Stone Breath".  This attack can easily petrify your entire
party giving you the popular "Game Over" screen.  So equip one of your people
with a Ribbon to prevent it.

Enter the temple and head up the steps for a quick scene.  Follow the path up
and all the way to the back of the hallway.  Take a running leap across the
small pit with the broken machina in it.  Grab the Stamina Spring from the 
chest and jump back.  Then go down a little and stand in the center of the 
symbol on the floor and press "X" to take the lift up.

Now go up and grab the Wristband from the treasure chest.  Then go up and push
all the pedestals back until the electric barrier at the doorway is
deactivated.  Now I've heard that the pedestal is random, however for me it
was always the same one.  The top center one.  If you choose the wrong one
then you will get a fight.  Just keep trying until you get it.

After the barrier is deactivated, go up the steps for a quick scene and a
boss battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Ixion
  HP: 12380
  MP: 9999
Weak: Water
 EXP: 2600

Normal Steal: Sprint Shoes
  Rare Steal: Sprint Shoes
 Normal Drop: Soul of Thamasa
   Rare Drop: Soul of Thamasa
 Dropped Gil: 1800
Pilfered Gil: 3000

Strategy:
        This battle shouldn't be too difficult.  Just be careful because
Ixion's Aerospark does around 1200 damage to one character.  Ixion's normal
attacks does around 150 damage to one character.  Ixion also Recharges once
in a while that gives it 200 HP/MP back.  The only thing to really look out
for is Ixion's "Thor's Hammer" attack that will do around 1000 damage to
all your characters.  So keep yourself at around full health.

If you are using Paine as a trainer, her HP Flurry is bery useful.  Just
continue attacking Ixion Ifrit until it goes down.  It shouldn't be too
difficult.
 
--

** Mission Complete! **

You will receive the Unwavering Guard Garment Grid.

A brief scene will ensue and Yuna will jump down the hole.  You will get a 
scene where the person who looks like Tidus says his name is Shuyin and he
calls Yuna Lenne.  He also seems to be using Vegnagun.  Shuyin then turns
into Baralai and Nooj and Gippal go after him.

Before they leave they will give you the Crimson Sphere 2 & 3.

When you get control back, you can move around or wait.  Eventually Yuna will
fall to her knees and say "I'm all alone"

When she says that press the "X" button on the controller.  You will hear
a familiar whistle.  Keep pressing "X" and you will see a yellow ghost-like
person.  Yuna will chase after it.  Keep pressing "X".  After pressing "X"
4 times Yuna will run off the platform onto a yellow glitter bridge after
the ghost and the scene will end.

If you miss this and do not see all that I have described then you will not
get the completion percentage needed.  Reset and do it again.

Yuna will wake up in the Vegnagun chamber.

******************************************************************************
** Chapter 3 Complete! *******************************************************
******************************************************************************


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[159] Chapter 4.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 4 mostly revolves around the CommSphere's that Shinra has setup all
over Spira.  You will be spending a lot of time on the Celsius.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[160] -- Celsius -------------------------------------------------------------

You will be onboard the Celsius at the start of chapter 4.  When you get
control back, take the elevator to the Engine Room and grab the Remedy x6,
Turbo Ether x3, Phoenix Down x7, and Hi-Potion x8 from the four treasure
chests there.

Now take the elevator to the Cabin and speak to Barkeep and select "Rest".
After resting take the elevator to the Deck.  Go outside and talk to Paine.
After the scene return to the Bridge and you will receive an Al Bhed
Primer.

Now speak to Shinra and watch the Crimson Record 2 and Crimson Record 3 from
the treasure spheres menu.

Save the game and it's CommSphere time!

The CommSphere system will be up and running now and as long as you went to
all the locations in the game and saw Shinra plant the CommSphere there then
it will be available to you.

If you want to get 100% completion then this part is not optional.  It can be
very boring however if you don't like this kind of thing.

To start off only four of the CommSphere's will be active.  They are Besaid,
Kilika, Mushroom Rock Road, and Bevelle.

Now it is imperative that you do not skip any of the talking or the scenes.
By doing that you will not get the full percentage points.  So yes, you have
to wait it out.

First we will look in on Besaid Island.  Talk to Shinra and go to the
CommSphere section.  Once the map comes up you will notice there are only four
blue pulsing circles on the map.  These identify the four places you can look
at for now.  Eventually they will all be available.  For now choose Besaid
Island.  After waiting a moment, pan over to look at Wakka's house.  He will
eventually come out and begin talking to you.  After he is finished and the
scene is over you can leave.

Next we'll look in on Dona at Kilika Island.  After this scene you can leave.

Now look at Mushroom Rock Road and speak to Yaibal.

Finally look at Bevelle and speak to Maroda.

After viewing all four scenes, leave the CommSphere network and talk to 
Buddy on the bridge.  Then speak to Paine.

Now go ahead and save the game and get ready to watch a lot more CommSphere
stuff.

I am going to list the scenes you need to watch in order to get all the 
percentage points.  Make sure you view them all without skipping anything.
You will know when the scene is over because the background music will get
slightly louder.

 - View the Besaid Island CommSphere seven times
 - View the Kilika Temple CommSphere
 - View the Luca CommSphere three times
 - View the Mi'ihen Highroad CommSphere and participate in the investigation.
   You must complete the sidequest and make it so that the culprit is Rikku or
   the Chocobo Eater in order to get the completion percentage.  See the
   Secrets/Sidequests section of this FAQ for more information.
 - View the Djose Temple CommSphere five times and you will get two Al Bhed
   Primers
 - View the Guadosalam CommSphere
 - View the Thunder Plains CommSphere and catch a chocobo using the
   Choco-Porter
 - View the Macalania Woods Entrance CommSphere
 - View the Macalania Woods Travel Agency CommSphere
 - View the Bikanel Desert Excavation Camp CommSphere
 - View the Calm Lands Chocobo Ranch CommSphere twice
 - View the Calm Lands Travel Agency CommSphere until you see the father of 
   the lonely unmarried young man run around behind the agency and play with
   a chest.  This will make that chest available later in the game and contain
   50,000 gil.
 - View the Mt. Gagazet Mountain Gate CommSphere
 - View the Mt. Gagazet Hot Springs CommSphere 16 times until the hot
   springs are empty.

After you are finished with all of the CommSphere stuff, talk to Buddy to go to
the Moonflow.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[161] -- Moonflow ------------------------------------------------------------

When you arrive at the Moonflow path, head up towards the area where the wagon
is.  You will see Tobli run off ahead.  Follow him.  Eventually you will see
another scene with Tobli running away from some people.  Continue going and
you will see yet another scene.  Head up to the next screen and pass by the
wagon to the next screen with the save sphere.  Now return to the previous
screen heading towards the entrance to the Moonflow.  You will see Tobli run
off again eventually.  Follow him again.

Eventually you will see a hover pass you driven by Tobli back towards the
wagon.  Return to the wagon and you will hear a crash.  When you get to the
wagon you will see Tobli wrecked into the wagon.  Continue going past the 
screen with the save sphere to the shoopuff screen and take the shoopuff
across towards Guadosalam.

On the other side, continue going towards Guadosalam.  You will see a scene
where Tobli gets knocked out of a tree and runs off.  Keep going up the path
and you will get a scene with a shoopuff.  Continue going and when you get to
the Guadosalam entrance, speak to Tobli.

** Mission Complete! **

You will receive the Black Tabard Garment Grid.

You will then be back onboard the Celsius.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[162] -- Celsius -------------------------------------------------------------

Once you are back onboard the Celsius, save the game.  Then head to the Cabin
to rehearse for the big concert.

Speak to Rikku in the corner to start this mini-game.  The object is to time
certain movements and musical notes by pressing the correct buttons at the
correct times.

Here is a list of the prizes obtained according to your total groove you
receive:

  --------------------------------------
 | Total Groove    |  Prize             |
 |--------------------------------------|
 |      0-49       |  Pearl Necklace    |
 |     50-99       |  Safety Bit        |
 |    100-149      |  Subliminator      |
 |      150+       |  Shmooth Shailing  |
  --------------------------------------

Now, instead of trying to time everything correctly and in the proccess drive
yourself mad, simply press all four buttons ("X", "O", "Square", & "Triangle")
as many times as you can during the time limit.  Just keep mashing the buttons
until the game stops.

Here is my score by doing this:

  -------------------
 | Your Groove       |
 |-------------------|
 | Rhythm        305 |
 | Fitness       728 |
 | Synch         191 |
 |-------------------|
 | Total Groove  808 |
  -------------------

Yep, needless to say, I got the 150+ prize (Shmooth Shailing).

Now, return to the bridge and let's take a look at the next round of 
CommSphere scenes.

I am going to list the scenes you need to watch in order to get all the 
percentage points.  Make sure you view them all without skipping anything.
You will know when the scene is over because the background music will get
slightly louder.

 - View the Besaid Island CommSphere twice
 - View the Kilika Island Port CommSphere four times
 - View the Kilika Island Temple CommSphere
 - View the Mushroom Rock Road CommSphere twice
 - View the Moonflow CommSphere where Elma tries to take her chocobo
   onto the shoopuff
 - View the Guadosalam CommSphere
 - View the Macalania Woods Travel Agency CommSphere
 - View the Zanarkand Ruins CommSphere three times

After you are finished with all of the CommSphere stuff, talk to Buddy to go to
the Thunder Plains.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[163] -- Thunder Plains ------------------------------------------------------

Upon entering the Thunder Plains you will receive a new mission to clean up
the monsters and defeat the boss fiend.

Just head on up the right side of the Thunder Plains (you can just follow the
red arrow on the mini-map) until you see a Hypello standing near the little
off-shoot on the right.  Talk to him to get full HP/MP.

Head on inside the entrance to the right.  At the first fork in the road, go
right and follow the path to grab the X-Potion from the treasure chest.  Now
return to the fork in the path and go left this time.  Pass up the rocks on
the right and head down to the dead end to grab the Haste Bangle from the
chest.  Now return to the rocks and climb up them.  Hang a left and then a
right to grab the Phoenix Down x2 from the chest.

Turn back around and at the fork hang a right and fall down into the pit.  In
the pit hand a right and climb up the rocks to grab the Elixer from the
treasure chest.  Jump back down into the pit and return to the fork and go up
the other set of rocks towards the boss.  Hop across the rocks to the boss.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Zalamander
  HP: 12850

 EXP: 1200

Normal Steal: Subliminator
  Rare Steal: Subliminator
 Normal Drop: Crimson Ring
   Rare Drop: Crimson Ring
 Dropped Gil: 930
Pilfered Gil: 1300

Strategy:
        This battle shouldn't be too difficult.  It's attack does 700-800
damage to one character.  It's Tail Smash does about 500 to all characters and
it's Flame Breath does around 400-500 to all.  Just make sure you steal the 
Subliminator from it before you kill it.

--

After you defeat the creature, grab the Black Ring from the treasure chest.
Now leave the cave and return to the Thunder Plains.

** Mission Complete! **

You will be back onboard the Celsius.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[164] -- Celsius -------------------------------------------------------------

When you return to the Celsius, speak to everyone except Tobli.  You should
also see a scene where it shows the crowd at the Thunder Plains arguing.
Save the game and when you are ready and confident you have completed
everything in Chapter 4, speak to Tobli and select "On with the show!".

What follows is arguably one of the best CG cutscenes I've seen in a Final
Fantasy game (and I've seen them all).

After the concert, head up to the bridge and speak to Maechen.  Eventually
Buddy will tell you that Leblanc is waiting to speak with you in the Engine
Room.  Now if you speak to Shinra, Leblanc will come bursting onto the bridge
and the scene will continue.  Instead of doing this, go down to the Engine
Room and speak to Leblanc who is waiting down there.  The scene will continue
from there and you will get the Crimson Sphere 5.

******************************************************************************
** Chapter 4 Complete! *******************************************************
******************************************************************************


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[165] Chapter 5.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In Chapter 5 you can go immediately to the end of the game by speaking to
Brother on the bridge.  However you will miss out on a lot of story and
gameplay if you do.  You may also be too weak at the start of Chapter 5.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[166] -- Celsius -------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 5 begins with you onboard the Celsius.  Talk to Shinra and watch the
Crimson Record 5.  Then talk to Buddy on the bridge.  This is the ultimate
moment of truth to see if you got everything in the game so far.  If so, every
place on the map, except Bevelle, will become a hotspot.  If not, then better
luck in your next game.  If you do have all of them then you will be able to
visit each of them and after completing everything in an area you will get
an Episode Complete! for it.  After obtaining and Episode Complete! in every
area except Bevelle, you will receive the Mascot Dressphere.  If Zanarkand
Ruins is the last place you obtain the Episode Complete! in, the game glitches
and you will not receive the Mascot Dressphere.  So make sure you visit
Zanarkand Ruins and obtain the Episode Complete! there first.

Now head to the Cabin and rest.  If you rested in the Cabin at least once in
every chapter (automatic resting doesn't count), you will be awoken in the
middle of the night to overhear Brother talking to Barkeep.

After you wake up, head down to teh Engine Room and try to open one of the
chests.  You will get a scene with Buddy concerning how the Gullwings got
their name.

Now grab the four chests containing Remedy x7, Turbo Ether x4, Phoenix Down
x8, and the X-Potion x4.

Now let's head to Zanarkand Ruins.  Talk to Buddy on the bridge and go there.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[167] -- Zanarkand Ruins -----------------------------------------------------

When you arrive at Zanarkand Ruins you will get a brief scene.

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

Now speak to Maechen standing near the save sphere to find out why Maechen
seems to know so much.  Choose "Yes, please!" to listen to his story.

Now head towards the Zanarkand Temple and grab the Dispel Tonic x3 and
Phoenix Down x4 from the chests along the way.  When you reach the entrance
you will find it is locked and you can warp back to the beginning.  

Return to the Celsius.  Now let's head to Besaid Island.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[168] -- Besaid Island -------------------------------------------------------

Head to Besaid Island via the airship.  After a brief scene, head into the
village and run up and follow Wakka to the temple.  Talk to Wakka for a quick
scene.

Now head out of the village along the path to the beach.  At the first bridge
on the screen with the waterfalls, fall down to the left side of the first
bridge and grab the Twilight Rain accessory.  This accessory allows Yuna's
Floral Fallal to learn the Break Damage Limit ability.

Now head to the Cipher cave and inside take the right fork to grab the Ether
x4 from the chest.  Now go back to the fork and go left this time and then
take the next left to grab the Mega-Potion from the chest.

Now head to the beach and walk up to the docks to speak to Beclam.  You will
receive the War Buddy Sphere.  Head back to the village and you will see
Wakka running towards you.  Speak to him for a brief scene.  Then return to
the village for another scene where you find out that Wakka and Lulu's baby
has finally been named, Vidina.

***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

You will be back onboard the Celsius.  Let's head now to Kilika Island.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[169] -- Kilika Island -------------------------------------------------------

Enter Kilika Island via the airship.  Jump across the boat on the left and
grab the Ether from the chest.  Hop back across and then hop across the boat
up across from the barking dog to grab the Mana Tablet x2 from the chest.
Then hop back across and continue into the village.  Take the second set of
steps you come to on the left and follow the path around to get the Remedy
from the chest.  Now go across the bridge to the right and grab the Remedy
from the chest along the path.

Continue going along the upper level path until you reach the end where the
stairs are going down.  Go down the steps and grab the Phoenix Down x3 from
the treasure chest.

Now go all the way back to where you first went up the second set of steps
you came to upon entering the village.  This time go up along the lower path
to the next screen.  At the next screen you will get a scene that shows the
gate is closed.  Head back a little and grab the Light Curtain x3 from
behind the house next to Dona's.  now go inside Dona's house and go upstairs
and grab the 3000 gil from the chest outside.  Then go back down and leave
the house.

Then go to the right and take the bridge to the far right side of town.  Grab
the Lunar Curtain x3 from the chest near the guy with the telescope/camera
thing.  Then talk to the guy with the telescope/camera thing and if you spoke
to him previously in chapter 1 and 3 then you will have the option to take a
ferry across to see the new Youth League Headquarters.  Take the ferry across
and on the left is a chest.  It is hard to see from the angle you get viewing
through the camera lens, however you can use the mini-map to find it.  Grab
the Invincible from the chest.  This accessory allows the character that has
it equipped to use Break Damage Limit of 9999.

Now, before heading back, go up the steps from left to right.  You should see
a kid running back and forth on them (use the mini-map).  Talk to him and he
will give you 5 Georapella Coins.  Now take the ferry back across.

Now follow along the bottom path towards the gate and grab the Dispel Tonic
from the chest.  Now go back a little and up the steps to grab the Star
Curtain x3 from the chest on the upper level.

Now head up the path to the gate and after a brief scene the gates will open
and you should now head into the forest.

Once in the forest, take the second fork to the right and follow it along on
the right side of the path.  When it starts to curve upward press the "O"
button to jump up to the secret ledge.  Grab the Arcane Lore from the
treasure chest.  You will also see Chiapa the cactuar lounging there.  Grab
him.

Here are his stats:

----------------
Chiapa          |
----------------|
      HP:    9  |
Strength: 6/10  |
 Agility: 4/10  |
----------------

After you get him, climb back down and continue up the path towards the
temple.  Head up the steps and you will finally get a scene with Dona and
Barthello.

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

You will receive the Tricks of the Trade Garment Grid.

You will be back onboard the Celsius.  Let's head back to Kilika Island to
grab a few more items.

Return to Kilika Island and go inside the temple.  In the room to the right
of the entrance to the Cloister of Trials is a chest containing a
Mega-Potion.  Now go inside the Cloister of Trials and in the first room grab
the Cat's Bell and an Ether x2 from the treasure chests.  In the second room
grab the Turbo Ether x2 and the Wizard Bracelet from the chests there.

Now return to the Celsius and head to Luca.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[170] -- Luca ----------------------------------------------------------------

Head to Luca via the airship.  You will see a scene about the Blitzball season
being in full swing now.  When Buddy asks you to play Blitzball say "I don't
think so" for now.  If you want to you can talk to the woman at the counter to
play anytime you want.

Head towards Mi'ihen Highroad and grab the Light Curtain x3 from the chest on
the bridge just before the steps leading up to the Mi'ihen Highroad.  Now, go
to the foot of the steps leading up and walk straight across the path
downward on the screen to the edge of the semi-circle part of the balcony
overlooking Luca Square.  This is the same location Tidus taught Yuna to
whistle in Final Fantasy X.  You should get a scene remembering this and then
a moogle will appear.  After the scene is over you will get a new mission to 
follow the moogle.

Follow the moogle down the steps toward Luca Square and you will get a scene.
Then follow the moogle towards the Blitzball stadium.  You should get another
scene at the fountain.  Afterwards, head to the stadium and follow the moogle
to the docks on the left.

At the next screen take the first fork to the dock on the left and go up to
the moogle waiting for you at the ramp leading onto the boat.  This will give
you the last scene.

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

You will be back onboard the Celsius.  Now let's go to Mi'ihen Highroad.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[171] -- Mi'ihen Highroad ----------------------------------------------------

Head to Mi'ihen Highroad and speak to Rin.  He will tell you the results of
your investigation and you will get the appropriate reward for who you found
the culprit to be.

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

You will now be able to ride the chocobo on the Mi-ihen Highroad.  Take the 
chocobo to the entrance leading from Luca.  Now ride up along the path and
grab the Phoenix Down x5 from the chest.  Continue going up the path and
grab the Black Belt from behind the structure/building on the left.  The
chest is behind the structure and not visible.  It's sitting right up against
the back of the structure.

Continue up along the path and grab the 3000 gil from up on the right.  At the
next screen grab the Remedy x2 from the chest.

On the next screen grab the Hi-Potion x3, the Titanium Bangle, and the Holy
Water x6 from the chests along the way.

At the travel agency screen, grab the Remedy x2 from the chest past the agency
and behind the hover.  Continue going to the next screen and pass over the two
bridges.  At the next screen find the first stone pillar along the left side
of the path.  Just to the left of the pillar is an opening in the grass.
Stand there a moment with your chocobo and eventually a menu will come up
asking you if you want to jump.  Jump up and grab the Phoenix Down x5.  Now
go back down and do this again.  This time your chocobo will fall down into
a pit.  Grab the Victor Primoris from the chest.  This item allows Paine's
Full Throttle to learn Break Damage Limit.

Continue along the path to the next screen and grab the M-Bomb x2 on the left.
Now take the down/right fork and follow the path to the next screen.

When you reach the large open area, grab the Soft x5 from the treasure chest.
Then keep going down the path and grab the Hi-Potion x3 on the right side
of the path.  Keep going and at the end of the path is a chest containing
Echo Screen x5.

Now return to the Celsius and let's head to Mushroom Rock Road.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[172] -- Mushroom Rock Road --------------------------------------------------

Head up the path and take the first fork to the left to get a scene with
Lucil and Elma.  Now go back to the fork and go up towards Djose Highroad and
take the next fork to the left.  Take the lift up and grab the Mega-Potion
and the 2500 gil from the two treasure chests.  Go back down the lift and
return to the area you spoke to Lucil and Elma at.  Find Yaibal standing
there and talk to him.  Choose "You bet!" to get a new mission.  The object
is to simply win seven battles in a row.  This is quite simple.

Your first battle will be with Yaibal and two soldiers.  Take them out and
continue following along the path to defeat the next four sets of fighters.

Heal between battles if you need to.

Eventually you will have to fight Elma.  Take her out and you will face your
final challenger, Lucil.  Take her out.

** Mission Complete! **

You will then see a brief scene.

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

You will automatically be taken back to the Celsius.  Return to Mushroom Rock
Road and follow the path all the way back to the Youth League Headquarters.

Along the way fall down into the Ravine and grab the Turbo Ether x3, Elixer,
and Elixer from the three chests down there.  Now climb back up and continue
going along the path.  At the lift just before the headquarters, grab the 
Machina Booster from the treasure chest near the lift.  This allows Rikku's
Machina Maw to learn the Break Damage Limit ability.  You should now have all
the Break Damage Limit abilities for all three special dresspheres.

Take the lift up to the Youth League Headquarters and enter inside the main
building.  Go out onto the Observation Deck (not the Balcony) and walk up
to Lucil to get a scene.  You will receive Nooj's Sphere.

Return to the Celsius and talk to Shinra and watch Nooj's Sphere
(Deathseeker).  Now let's go to Djose Temple.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[173] -- Djose Temple --------------------------------------------------------

Go to Djose Temple via the airship and enter the temple.  You will get a scene
about an experimental new weapon they have created.  Choose "Take on the
Experiment" to get a new mission.  You must defeat the experiment.  This will
begin a boss battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Experiment
  HP: 18324
  MP: 0
Weak: ??
 EXP: 0

Normal Steal: Turbo Ether
  Rare Steal: Turbo Ether
 Normal Drop: Elixer
   Rare Drop: Elixer
 Dropped Gil: 0
Pilfered Gil: 5000

Strategy:
        This battle shouldn't be very easy.  This is only the initial level
of the experiment so it will be easy.  It's main attack only does about
700-800 damage to one of your characters.

--

After you defeat the Experiment you will receive an Al Bhed Primer.

In order to get the Episode Complete! for Djose Temple you will need to
defeat the Experiment once at it's lowest level and once at it's highest
level of five.  We just defeated it once at the lowest level so all we need
to do now if defeat it at it's highest level.  In order to do that we will
need to dig up a bunch of part/upgrades in Bikanel Desert.  However we will
do that a little later.

For now go inside the door to the left of the stairs leading up to the 
Cloister of Trials.  Talk to the man sitting on the floor to get the
"How to Repair with Soul".  This item allows you to challenge the Experiment
again.  There are only five items total in the game that allow you to
challenge the Experiment so don't waste them.  We won't be using this item
until we make sure the Experiment is at it's highest level.

Now grab the Remedy x2 from the chest inside the room.  Now return to the
Celsius and let's head to the Moonflow.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[174] -- Moonflow ------------------------------------------------------------

Head to the Moonflow via the airship.  Head one screen to the right and talk
to Tobli.  Choose "Let's go onstage!".  When you are done watching the 
performance, press "O" to exit.

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

Return to the Celsius and then go to Guadosalam.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[175] -- Guadosalam ----------------------------------------------------------

Head to Guadosalam via the airship and head up to the main part of the city
just in front of the Chateau Leblanc entrance to trigger a scene.  Now enter
the Chateau to get another quick scene.  Then head back out and go up the
path on the right and go inside the door on the right.

Inside will be a chest and depending on your actions throughout the game a
different item will be contained inside.

If you completed all the Moonflow missions but did not defeat Garik at Mt.
Gagazet in chapter 3, then the chest will contain the Key to Success.  This
is a great accessory, however, you cannot get 100% completion and get this
item.

If you completed all the Moonflow missions and defeated Garik in chapter 3
then the chest will contain the Kaiser Knuckles.

If you did not complete the Moonflow missions and defeated Garik in chapter
3 then the chest will contain the Crystal Ball.

If you followed this FAQ then you should get the Kaiser Knuckles.

Now head back out of the house and go down the path and speak to Tromell
again standing next to the musicians playing music.  This will trigger
another scene.

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

You will be back onboard the Celsius.  Let's go back to Guadosalam to get a
few more items.

Go up and over to the left to the house that has been locked the entire game.
Talk to Tromell for a quick scene.  Now go inside the house that used to be
locked and you will get another scene and receive the Tempered Will Garment
Grid.  Now grab Baralai's Sphere from the chest inside the room and the
Tetra Bracelet from the other treasure chest.

Now return to the Celsius and watch Baralai's Sphere (Yevon's Secret).  After
you are finished, go to the Thunder Plains.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[176] -- Thunder Plains ------------------------------------------------------

Upon entering the Thunder Plains you will get a scene and a new mission to
defeat the fiends at each lightning rod tower.  Each tower has a Rhyos at it
and when you defeat it the fiend will leave behind a treasure chest containing
an item.  Here is a list of the towers and the items they leave behind.

1. Elixer
2. Megalixer
3. Megalixer
4. Champion Belt
5. Pixie Dust
6. Yellow Ring
7. Blue Ring
8. Red Ring
9. White Ring

After defeating the 9th fiend, you will get scene with Yuna and the others.
Now follow the red arrow on the mini-map over to the 10th tower across the
lake.  At the edge of the water you will get the option to check out the
last tower or not.  Choose yes to check out the tower and you will get a boss
battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Humbaba
  HP: 27772
  MP: 785
Weak: ??
 EXP: 1800

Normal Steal: Hi-Potion x2
  Rare Steal: Ether
 Normal Drop: Hi-Potion x4
   Rare Drop: NulShock Ring
 Dropped Gil: 550
Pilfered Gil: 1800

Strategy:
        This battle can be quite difficult.  Humbaba uses Mighty Guard almost
immediately to reduce the damage you can inflict.  This is also a chance to
get this ability for your Gun Mage if you missed it earlier in the game.  Now
Humbaba uses an attack called Uppercut that does about 1500-2000 damage to
one character quite often.  Humbaba also use Thundaga that does about 800 to
all your characters.  His Tyrant Tail attacj does about 800-1200 damage to
all characters as well.

Now, when you defeat Humbaba he'll drop a final attack on you called Meteor
that can do 1500 to all though it randomly hits your characters so it could
kill one of them and barily touch another.  But it's safe to say that about
1500 damage on average will inflict them all.  That way as long as all three
of your characters are above that then you should easily survive.

Now, if you are using a White Mage then cast Curaga with that character on
all three characters every round.  I however used Paine instead with a
maxed out Trainer Dressphere.  That way I could use HP Flurry every round
for only 5 MP each time.  HP Flurry heals all three of my characters for
about 1700 each.

Attack with the other characters and it will eventually go down.  Make sure
you don't use Thunder attacks because Humbaba absorbs them.  Just be sure to
heal every round.  It is the key to this battle.  Be patient and Humbaba will
go down.

--

** Mission Complete! **

You will receive the Valiant Lustre Garment Grid.

You will then get a scene and be offered the option to go into a hole that
has appeared at one of the towers.  This is a secret dungeon.  Choose "Maybe
later".  Now grab the Tetra Band from the treasure chest.  Then head down to
the travel agency screen and save the game.  Now equip Poisonproof and
Lightning Eater/Proof/Ward accessories on all three of your characters.

Then return to the Al Bhed and choose "Yup, in the hole".  This will take
you into the dungeon.

I am going to show you a partial map of the dungeon because you can only
access this part for now.  Later on in a sidequest you will be able to
access the entire dungeon and I will show you the entire map then.

Here is a partial map of the dungeon:

Now, grab the three treasures from the dungeon and when you are ready head
to Cid ("O" on the map") and talk to him.  Cid will only be here if you talk
to him previously and he apologized to Yuna after she yelled at him.

After a scene with Cid, you will have to fight a boss battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Machina Panzer
  HP: 30500
  MP: 1247
Weak: ??
 EXP: 4300

Normal Steal: Oath Veil
  Rare Steal: Oath Veil
 Normal Drop: Crystal Bangle
   Rare Drop: Crystal Bangle
 Dropped Gil: 10000
Pilfered Gil: 2500

Strategy:
        This battle can be quite difficult if you don't know what you are
doing or if you didn't do things correctly earlier in the game.  Machina
Panzer is accompanied by a Watcher-A, Watcher-S, and Watcher-R.  The Watcher-A
will lock out attacks, Watcher-S locks out special attacks, and Watcher-R
locks out recovery abilities.  They will only lock out abilities that they
saw you use previously in battles around Spira.  If you did a good job of
taking them out first with normal attacks then you shouldn't have any problems
with this boss.  If you didn't then you could be in trouble.

Now Machina Panzer's attacks aren't particularly devastating.  It's normal
attack does around 250 damage to one character, it's Gatling Gun does about
200 damage to all characters, and it's Sorcery Ray does around 600 damage to
all characters.  Sometimes Sorcery Ray will hit for double that however for
some reason (so around 1200).

First of all, take out the Watcher's quickly.  After they are all defeated,
focus all your attacks on the main Machina Panzer boss.  I found this battle
very simple.  My characters were at level 58 for this battle.

You will receive an Al Bhed Primer.

You will be back onboard the Celsius.  Head up to the Deck to find Cid.
He'll mumble something and go inside.  Now return to the bridge to witness
an argument between Brother and Cid.  Now save the game because we'll be
returning to the Thunder Plains one more time.

Now, before we return to the secret cave again, we first need to equip a
Charm Bangle to prevent random encounters.  This will make it much easier to
complete the sidequest.

MAKE SURE YOU EQUIP THE CHARM BANGLE!

Return to the Thunder Plains and talk to the same Al Bhed who will take you
to the secret dungeon again and choose "Yup, in the hole." again.

This time upon entering the cave you will get a brief introduction on the
sidequest in the cave.

After the introduction, you will see two boxes on your screen.  One in the
top left corner of the screen and one in the bottom right corner of the
screen.

Top left box:

  ------------
 | [] No Data | (Yellow text)
  ------------

Bottom right box:

  --------
 | []>> # | (Yellow text)
 |        | 
 |   ##   | (White text)
  --------

Okay, this sidequest may seem complex but stay with me and you will see that
it is extremely simple.

The bottom right box is information concerning the next door you need to
open.  There are 16 doors in all inside this cave.  Each one can only be
opened in an exact order given to you at each door.  So the []>> # refers to
the next door you need to go open.  In this case it is the first door.  So
let's assume the number says 3.  So on the screen it would say in yellow text
in the bottom right box []>> 3.  This tells us we need to go and find door
number 3 somwhere in the cave.  The ## in white text is the first part of the
code to open door 3 (or whatever door number you actually have).

Here is a map of the entire cave:

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX     

Now, to keep track of all the codes I used a numbered list on a sheet of
paper.  I HIGHLY recommend you do the same thing.  You will need to keep
track of all the numbers.

Like this:

1.                              9.
2.                             10.
3.                             11.
4.                             12.
5.                             13.
6.                             14.
7.                             15.
8.                             16.

When you start the quest, quickly write down the first code in the appopriate
door number slot.  This is what my sheet looked like using the example we
have been using.

1.                              9.
2.                             10.
3. 5 +                         11.
4.                             12.
5.                             13.
6.                             14.
7.                             15.
8.                             16.

My first code was 5 for door 3.  This means that when I entered the dungeon
my bottom right screen looked like this:

  --------
 | []>> 3 | (Yellow text)
 |        | 
 |    5   | (White text)
  --------

So I wrote it down.

Now, press a button to make the boxes go away and allow you to get control
back.  You will notice 2 treasure chest in front of you.  These treasure
chest will do 1 of 3 things.

1. Give you a helpful hint.
2. Automatically open the next door for you.
3. Nothing (the chest is empty).

You only get to open one and after you open it they will both disappear.
Don't worry about the chest that much.  If you get lucky and it opens the
next door for you, then good, you get to skip a door.  Otherwise they are
useless.

*Note:  If opening a chest opens the next door for you, the two boxes with
        the codes on them will pop up on the screen.  Make sure you write
        down the information it gives you on your sheet for later.

Now, go ahead and open one of the treasure chests (it doesn't matter which
one because the first set of chest does the same thing regardless).  When
you open the chest you will get a tutorial.  You will get the chance for the
game to show and open the first door for you if you want to.  If you do this
however, make sure you write the codes down on paper anyway because you may
need them later.

So use the map to find the door you need to go to.  Once you have found the
door press "X" when you are next to it and you will get a new set of boxes
on the screen.  You can also just follow the red arrow on the mini-map to
find the next door.

The bottom box is the same with new information concerning the next door,
however the top left box is different.  Instead of "No Data" it now has some
information in it.

Here is the new top left box:

  --------
 | #>> [] | (Yellow text)
 |        | 
 |   ##   | (White text)
  --------

You will notice the yellow box and the #>> are reversed now.  This tells you
that this is the second part of the code for door 3 (or whatever door number
you actually have).

There is also a new box in the center:

  -----------------------------------------------
 |                  Code Entry                   |
 |                   0000000                     |          
 | If there aren't enough digits, input all 9's. |
 |             X Enter     [] Cancel             |
  -----------------------------------------------

This box is simply where you will enter your code.  Use the left/right
arrows on your controller to move the cursor to the different numbers.
Use the up/down arrows to increase/decrease the number.

Now, don't let the text "If there aren't enough digits, input all 9's."
throw you off.  This just means if you get a code that is higher than
9999999 then just enter 9999999 since you can't enter anything higher.

For me, the second part of the code (the white number in the top left box)
was 6.  So here is my sheet now.

1.                              9.
2.                             10.
3. 5 + 6 = 11                  11.
4.                             12.
5.                             13.
6.                             14.
7.                             15.
8.                             16.

You can see that I took the two codes I had (5 and 6) and added them together.
This gives me the number 11, the code for door number 3.  So now I simply
need to enter 0000011 in the code input box and press "X".

The door should open if you wrote down the correct two codes and added them
correctly.

Now, after the door opens you will get two new treasure chests.  They will
randomly do one of the three things I talked about earlier.  Now, if you skip
the treasure chests and then go and unlock the next door, then these two will
disappear and two new ones will appear at the next door you opened.

Okay, so that's the basic gist of the sidequest.  It's just basic math.

Now there are a few other things.  You can press the "Square" button on your
controller at anytime to pull up the last information you received.  You can
only do this 3 times per door.  After that it won't work until the next door.
I never used this function because I wrote everything down.

Now sometimes instead of a simple code being given to you like 6.  You will
see something like:

Door 10's code
or
Amount of gil earned since door 3
or
Number of battles fought since entering the cave
or
6879 + door 5's code

This is why you need to write all the codes down.  Now, if you equipped the
Charm Bangle like I said to then the amount of gil question will always be 0.
So if you see something like "10 + amount of gil received" the part of that
code will be "10".  The same applies to the number of battles fought question.

Lastly, on the map you will see "B3".  This is a button you can press to pull
up the Code Compendium.  If at any point you forget to write something down
or wrote down the wrong code, you can check this as many times as you like
to get a list of all the codes you have received so far.

*Note: This only lists full codes, not parts of the codes, so if you forget
       a part of the code, you will have to use the "Square" button.

Now, after you reach the last door the bottom right box will say:

  ------------ 
 |  It ends.  |
 | Well done. |
  ------------ 

This is because there is not a next door.

After you complete the puzzle the first time, exit the cave and go save the
game.  Now return to the cave and do the entire puzzle AGAIN!  That's right,
all over again.

After you complete the puzzle the second time, a chest will appear (T8 on my
map) in the first corridor containing the Force of Nature accessory.  This
accessory absorbs all elemental damage and adds elemental damage to your
weapon.

Now, let's head to Macalania Woods.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[177] -- Macalania Woods -----------------------------------------------------

Head to Macalania Woods via the airship or on foot from the Thunder Plains.
Take the glitter bridge up and at the next screen, take the up fork to grab
the Rune Bracer from the treasure chest.  

Now go all the way back down to the left to the save sphere area and take the
normal path up and follow it to the next screen.  Along the winding path is
a treasure chest containing a Snow Ring.  Continue following the path until
you reach the "X" crossroads screen.

Take the up/right fork to go to the alcove and speak to the person there for
a quick scene.  Now leave the alcove and return to the "X" crossroads screen.
Take the up/left fork to take you to Lake Macalania.

You will get a scene with O'aka and Wantz (if you followed everything
correctly in this FAQ).  

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

Now grab the Elixer from the chest to the right of the travel agency.  Now go
back to the "X" crossroads screen and take the down/right fork to take the
glitter bridge all the way back to the save sphere screen.  At that screen
go two screens to the right and take the down fork to take you to the springs
area for a scene.  Now walk up to the water's edge to get another scene.

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

You will receive the Ray of Hope Garment Grid.  I'm not sure why you get two
Episode Complete! screens in Macalania.  Maybe it's a glitch.

Now you should be returned to the Celsius.  Let's head to Mt. Gagazet.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[178] -- Mt. Gagazet ---------------------------------------------------------

Head to Mt. Gagazet via the airship and walk down towards the Calm Lands to
trigger a scene with Kimahri and Garik.  After the scene is over talk to 
Kimahri for another scene.

Now, walk up to the warp pad at the foot of the hill and warp to the Mountain
Trail.  Follow the path up to the left and you will trigger another scene
between Kimahri and Garik.

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

You will receive the Sacred Beast Garment Grid.

You will be back onboard the Celius.  Return to Mt. Gagazet via the airship.
You will be taken to the top of the mountain near the hot springs.  Go to the
left and climb up the cliffs.  When you reach a group of Ronso along with
Kimahri sitting down getting a shoulder rub, go directly to the right from
the little cave opening and across a small bridge.  You will find Lian and
Ayde there along with Kimahri's statue.  Talk to them to receive the
Conflagration Garment Grid and a quick scene.

Now return to the save sphere near the hot springs and use the save sphere
to return to the Celsius.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[179] -- Bikanel Desert ------------------------------------------------------

Let's go to Bikanel Desert via the airship.  Upon entering Bikanel Desert,
Nhadala will approach you and ask you to help the Cactuar Nation because it
is being attacked by a gigantic fiend.

Talk to the pilot and go to the Cactuar Nation and you will get a scene
telling you to find the ten gatekeepers again.  Find the green square on the
mini-map and return Chiapa (we found earlier in Kilika) to his mother.

Now find the next green square and talk to that mother to get information on
Erio.  It says he saw some snow and went to a spring.  This tells us he is
somewhere on Mt. Gagazet.  So let's go there again.  Talk to Picket and
return to the Al Bhed camp and use the save sphere there to return to the
airship.  Now go to Mt. Gagazet via the airship.

If you start at the bottom of the mountain, take the warp pad up to the
Mountain Gate and follow the path up to the next screen where there is an
open area with a cliff edge to the left overlooking the mountain.  Erio is
near the edge.

If you start at the hot springs area, just climb down the cliffs and follow
the path down until you reach the first screen with snow on it.  It will be
a large open area with a cliff edge to the left overlooking the mountain.
Erio is near the edge.

Here are his stats:

----------------
Erio            |
----------------|
      HP:   15  |
Strength: 8/10  |
 Agility: 4/10  |
----------------

After you get him find the nearest save sphere and return to the Celsius and
go back to Bikanel Desert.  Return to the Catuar Nation and return Erio to
his Mother and find the next mother to find out about Bartschella.  It says
she likes money and is at a sphere hunter's house.  This refers to Dona's
house in Kilika.

Return to the airship and then go to Kilika.  Go to Dona's house and
Bartschella is directly on the left upon entering.

Here are her stats:

----------------
Bartschella     |
----------------|
      HP:   12  |
Strength: 8/10  |
 Agility: 5/10  |
----------------

After you get her find the nearest save sphere and return to the Celsius and
go back to Bikanel Desert.  Return to the Catuar Nation and return Bartschella
to her Mother and find the next mother to find out about Frailea.  It says he
falls in with the wrong crowd sometimes.  This tells us he is inside the rogue
cactuar lair.

Talk to Marnela to get a new mission to find the 10th cactuar.  This will take
you into the rogue cactuar lair, Cactuar Hollow.  Follow the path along and 
eventually you will get a scene after a random encounter where the cactuars
shoot a fiend to make it much larger.  From here on all the fiends in random
encounters will be over-sized fiends.

At the first fork, take the up path and climb up on the rocks to grab an
Ether from the treasure chest.  Now climb back down and take the right fork
this time.  Fall down into the sand and you will find out it is a trap.  The
sand will slowly rise and you must try and make it to the other side before
it gets to high.

Don't panic!  You can do this as many times as you want.  In fact, to get all
the items along the way you will have to do it several times.  Each time you
don't make it you will be placed back at the waterfall cliffs area where we
just got the Ether.

So, make your way along and grab all the items you can.  Take your time not
to miss anything.  I will list the items in the order they are found along
the path.

Faerie Earrings, Ether, Hi-Potion, Megalixer, Twist Headband, Ether, Mute
Shock, Beaded Brooch, & Phoenix Down.

At the end of the path you wil have to climb up from the side and jump across
to get up to the ledge.  Keep going down the path and you will eventually 
run into Frailea.

Here are his stats:

----------------
Frailea         |
----------------|
      HP:   10  |
Strength: 6/10  |
 Agility: 3/10  |
----------------

Now Frailea has two cactuars with him.  The way to tell which one is him,
simply look at their mouths as they flip through.   Frailea has an oval
shaped mouth.  The other two have a flat top part on their mouths.

You don't have to defeat Frailea now if you don't want to.  You will still
be able to challenge him later to try and get the "Covenant of Growth
Garment Grid".  However, before you can challenge him again you will have to
defeat Angra Mainyu.  One of the most difficult bosses in the game!

After you get him you will have to fight a boss battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Jumbo Cactuar, Cactuar x2
  HP: 22222, 2002
  MP: 1111, 120
Weak: ??, ??
 EXP: 0, 0

Normal Steal: Stamina Tonic, None
  Rare Steal: Stamina Tonic x2, None
 Normal Drop: Stamina Tonic, None
   Rare Drop: Rabite's Foot, None
 Dropped Gil: 0, 120
Pilfered Gil: 0, 180

Strategy:
        This battle isn't too difficult unless you get the misfortune of
the Jumbo Cactuar going into oversoul mode.  The Jumbo Cactuar just sits there
doing nothing except casting Hastega on itself and the smaller cactuars.  So
ignore it and focus on killing the smaller cactuars first.

I would recommend using 1 or 2 gunners for this battle.  They can easily kill
the smaller cactuars in one Trigger Happy.  Use Trigger Happy against them
because their evasion is so high that you can hardly hit them otherwise.

After they are gone take out the Jumbo Cactuar quickly.  You shouldn't have
any trouble with this battle.  If the Jumbo Cactuar goes into oversoul form
then it will start using high level Black Magic spells along with Flare so
you could have problems then.  Just hope that doesn't happen.

The rare drop for this battle is a Rabite's foot.  Try to get this item if
you can because it gives you Luck +100 which is an excellent accessory.

--

** Mission Complete! **

Now, leave the Cactuar Hollow and you will get a scene with a new mission to
defeat the desert fiend.

Now this battle is one of the most difficult in the game (except for the
Via Infinito area).  If you feel the urge to take him on now, go for it.  I
would suggest skipping it for now unless you are at around level 70 or higher.
You can defeat it at low levels around 50, however it takes some round about
strategy and a bit of work.  

For now, we'll be skipping it.  We'll some back to it later when we need to
get the parts for the Experiment battle.

Choose "Yes" to return to he airship instead of fighting it now.

Now let's head to Bevelle.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[180] -- Bevelle -------------------------------------------------------------

Head to Bevelle via the airship.  Take the transport to the far end of the
path.  Now follow the path towards the temple and you will get a scene with
Maroda (unless you gave the sphere to New Yevon earlier in the game).  

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

You will receive the Scourgebane Garment Grid.

Now, go to the temple (the area with the lift up to the balcony) in Bevelle
and head inside.  Upon entering, take an immediate right to the next screen 
and you will get a scene with the Kinderguardians.  Save the game and then
jump onto the teleport pad.

Move forward and you will get a brief scene.  Grab the Crimson Sphere 6 from
off the ground and choose not to watch it right now.  Follow the path ahead
and find a hole in the ground.  Jump down into it.

This secret dungeon is called Via Infinito.  It is sort of like the monster
arena in Final Fantasy X in that it contains monsters far more difficult than
the end boss of the game.  The deeper you go into the dungeon, the more
difficult the fiends become.

We are currently on level 1.  We will only be going to level 20 for now,
however to get the 100% completion we will have to go through all 100 levels
of this dungeon.  We are not strong enough for that yet though.

This dungeon has standard floor layouts that you will see over and over and
over again.  They are randomly placed so I can't walk you through each level.

However they are not difficult to get through navigationaly wise.  Just
difficult to survive in.

The object is to try and get to the far end of the path and find a pit that
you can jump down into.  Jumping into the pit will take you to the next level.

Another important thing to note about this dungeon is that using a Charm
Bangle will do NOTHING.  So you cannot eliminate the random encounters.

Along the way you will see Tonberry's walking around.  Most of the time you
can simply ignore them and go around them.  However some of the levels
require you to fight them in order to advance through the level.  You will 
know when you need to fight one when you can't go ahead any farther.  Sometimes
fighting the Tonberry will offer up a shortcut to the end of the level as well.

It's up to you whether you want to fight them or not.  During the first 20
levels they are quite easy.

Now, one final thing to look out for is traps along the way.  The only thing
you might come across in the first 20 levels is a large Elder Drake on the
screen jumping out from an alcove.  Avoid this fiend at all costs.  If you
get into a fight with this fiend you cannot escape from it and YOU WILL DIE!.
You are not strong enough to tackle this monster.  Avoid it like the plague.

There are also teleport pads on every level.  These simply take you back to
the entrance allowing you to essentially quit the dungeon and save/heal.
You can then re-enter the dungeon at the point you left off at.

At 20 level increments you will fight a boss.

Okay, so make your way along the dungeon levels and at level 20 you will get
a scene with Kinoc and then you will have to fight a boss battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Aranea
  HP: 18280
  MP: 178
Weak: None
 EXP: 4000

Normal Steal: Turbo Ether x1
  Rare Steal: Kinesis Badge x1
 Normal Drop: Stamina Tonic x1
   Rare Drop: Mythril Bangle x1
 Dropped Gil: 800
Pilfered Gil: 2200

Strategy:
        This battle isn't too difficult.  He's similar to Boris that you
fought early on in the game, however with higher HP.  Just attack and heal
and he will go down easy enough.

--

After the battle, grab the Crimson Sphere 8 on the ground and choose not to
watch it for now.  Find the nearest teleport pad and teleport out of the
dungeon.  Save the game at the save sphere and return to the Celsius.

Once you are back onboard the Celsius, talk to Shinra and watch the Crimson
Record 6 and Crimson Record 8.

Now let's head to Mushroom Rock Road.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[181] -- Calm Lands ----------------------------------------------------------

Head to the Calm Lands via the airship.  If you successfully got over 400 PR
points throughout the game, you will a scene here where the winner is decided.
The two new mini-games will be unlocked (depending on how well you did) and
you can now purchase some great items using credits from the two reps.

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

Talk to the man to the left of the shop to get either the Calm Lands Free Pass
or the Calm Lands Discount Pass (depending on how well you did).

Now talk to the unmarried man's father to get your reward.  Then head behind
the travel agency and grab the 50,000 gil from the treasure chest there (only
if you watched him put it there during chapter 4 through the CommSphere).

Explore the Calm Lands and the area where the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth is to
get all kinds of great items and accessories.

Now let's head to Mushroom Rock Road.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[182] -- Mushroom Rock Road --------------------------------------------------

Head to Mushroom Rock Road via the airship.  Make your way towards the Youth
League Headquarters and fall down into the ravine.  Follow the path along and
save the game at the save sphere just before the Den of Woes.  Now enter the
cave and touch the door with the symbol on it to activate all the spheres.
This will open the door to the Den of Woes.  Go inside and you will get a
scene.

Now, there are no items inside this area so just follow the red arrow to the
large open room at the end of the passage.  When you reach the room you will
get a scene.  You will then have to fight Rikku.

Strategy:
        This battle isn't too difficult, however since Yuna is alone you
won't have anyone to revive her if you die.  I would suggest using Yuna
as a Trainer.  This way you have good attacking capability and good
healing ability as well.  Just keep attacking with Kogoro and use Kogoro
Cure when your HP gets low. 

If you feel like it, try switching to the Thief dressphere to swipe the
Bushido Lore.

--

After defeating Rikku you will have to face Paine.

--

After you defeat Nooj you will get a scene.

******************************************************************************
***************************** EPISODE COMPLETE! ******************************
******************************************************************************

You will receive the Supreme Light Garment Grid.

You will then be back onboard the Celsius.  Now it's time to do some clean
up.  Before we can go to the final dungeon of the game we need to tie up some
loose ends to get our 100% completion.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[183] -- Tie Up Loose Ends ---------------------------------------------------

We have a lot of loose ends to tie up.  We still have to raise some chocobo's
so we can gain access to the secret cave.  We have to find the parts for the
Experiment and then defeat it at level 5.  We have to complete the Via
Infinito dungeon and we have to defeat the desert fiend at Bikanel Desert.

Now you can skip all this and go directly to the end of the game.  This is
what I suggest.  Make sure you keep a save game at this point however so you
can play from here and get the 100% Completion.

Why, you ask?  Because if you do all these sidequests, you will be so
over-powered the end boss will seem like a joke and it will ruin the end of
the game experience for you.  You will also get to see the original ending of
the game as well.  Then you can go back to your save game and get 100% of
everything and complete the game again to get the good ending.

However, I will list in this section everything we need to finish up to get
the 100% completion.  But, again, I suggest skipping this section for now and
going directly to the next section, [110] Farplane, to finish the game.


    --- SKIP SECTION AND GOTO END ([110] Farplane) ---

                           OR

--- CONTINUE ON NOW AND GOTO END ([110] Farplane) LATER ---


Okay, so you have finished the game and now you want to get EVERYTHING or you
said forget that garbage, I'm doing it all now, and then I'll beat the game.

If you finished the game and came back here, then good for you.  If not, then
don't say I didn't warn you.

So let's finish the Chocobo Ranch and Chocobo Ranch Secret Dungeon.  Please
see the sections titled "Chocobo Ranch" and "Chocobo Ranch Secret Dungeon"
in the "Secrets/Sidequests" area for information on completing this quest.

Now let's tackle the Mi'ihen Highroad Secret Dungeon.  Please see the 
section titled "Mi'ihen Highroad Secret Dungeon" in the "Secrets/Sidequests"
area for information on completing this quest.

After you finish the all the chocobo quests, head to Bikanel Desert.  It's
time to take out Angra Mainyu.

After you finish the chocobo quests, head to Bikanel Desert.  It's time to
take out Angra Mainyu.


Upon entering Bikanel Desert, you will get a scene and then you will be thrown
into a boss battle.


-- Boss Battle --
Name: Angra Mainyu, Tawrich, Zarich
  HP: 333444, 5540, 5540
  MP: 9999, 9999, 9999
 EXP: 5000, 0, 0

Normal Steal: Ribbon, None, None
  Rare Steal: Ribbon, None, None
 Normal Drop: Megalixer, None, None
   Rare Drop: Megalixer, None, None
 Dropped Gil: 5000, 0, 0
Pilfered Gil: 7500, 0, 0

Strategy:
        This battle is one of the most difficult in the game.  It is an
optional battle if you aren't going for 100%.  I recommend being at level 70
or higher before attempting Angra Mainyu.  I know you can beat him at low
levels around 40, however, I don't see the point.  See my section on Leveling
Up Quickly if you want to level up fast.

There are many different strategies out there.  Some better, some worse.  I 
will give the strategy that I used that worked very well for me.  I WILL NOT
be using Dark Knights or Darkness attacks in my strategy.  I get sick of
hearing everyone say, just use Darkness this and Darkness that on EVERY single
boss.  It's cheap if you ask me and there is more to the game than Darkness
people!!

Here is the lineup:

 - Berserker
 - Samurai
 - Alchemist

You don't have to have these maxed out, but it helps!

There are 3 parts to Angra Mainyu.  Angra Mainyu, Tawrich, and Zarich.
Tawrich is immune to magic attacks and Zarich is immune to physical attacks.

Here are the attacks they can and will use if alive:

-- Angra Mainyu --

 - Curaga            
     Heals for around 2000-2500
 - Demi
     Cuts all your characters HP by 1/4
 - Bio
     Poisons one character
 - Flare
     Does around 9999 damage to one character
 - Full-Life
     Revives Tawrich or Zarich
 - Osmose
     Steals MP
 - Perdition's Flame
     This is a major attack that can kill your entire party (can only use when
     Tawrich and Zarich are both alive)


-- Tawrich --

 - Attack
     Minimal damage to one character
 - Bloody Breath
     Minimal damage to all characters but inflicts them all with Confusion,
     Darkness, Poison, and Silence.


-- Zarich --

 - Blizzaga
     Magic damage to one character
 - Firaga
     Magic damage to one character
 - Glimmer of Despair
     Lowers stats and drains MP from all characters
 - Thundaga
     Magic damage to one character


Now I will explain why I chose the Samurai, Berserker, and Alchemist.  If you
don't have the abilities listed, the I would suggest getting them before you
fight Angra Mainyu.

The Samurai has several things I liked for this battle:
 - Attack
   The Samurai has good power and can deal out heavy damage with regular
   attacks
 - Fingersnap
   Use to revert stats back to normal periodically
 - Clean Slate
   Use to remedy effects and restore HP
 - SOS Critical
   Does heavy damage at low HP levels
 - No Fear
   Casts Shell and Protect on the user

The Berserker has several things I liked for this battle:
 - Attack
   The Berserker has huge power and can easily dish out 9999 damage
 - Howl
   Doubles user's max HP
 - Auto-Regen
   Free Regen!
 - Counterattack
   Free hits!
 - Evade & Counter
   Evades physical attacks and counters

The Alchemist has several things I liked for this battle:
 - Mix
   Tons of attacks and curative spells available when needed
 - Stash
   Free Mega-Potions, X-Potions, Mega Phoenix's, Ethers, and Elixers!
 - No MP Required
   Since the alchemist doesn't use MP for her Stash command, you can restore
   huge amounts of health to all characters even with 0 MP.  Remember, Angra
   Mainyu and Zarich constantly bring your MP down to 0 during the fight.


As far as equipment goes, equip a Moon Bracer (Auto-Shell) and a Shining
Bracer (Auto-Protect) on your Alchemist.  She is the one we need to keep
alive.  The Moon Bracer will help guard against Flare and magic attacks, and
the Shining Bracer will help guard against physical attacks and Perdition's
Flame.

Equip a Champion Belt (STR+40, DEF+40) and Kaiser Knuckles (STR+50) on the
Berserker.  Equip Hyper Wrist (STR+30) and Diamond Gloves (DEF+40) on the
Samurai.  If you have better equipment like the Iron Duke, Adamantite, or
Catnip, then by all means, equip them instead.  I just listed the equipment
you would have so far if you followed my FAQ.  We won't be getting those
until later.

So now that you have the setup, let's talk about the battle.

The key to this battle is keeping either Tawrich or Zarich alive.  You don't
need to get rid of them both!  You can if you want to however.  Angra Mainyu
will keep reviving them peiodically though.

We will focus on killing Tawrich and IGNORING Zarich.  Since we don't have
a particularly magical party, we will focus on Tawrich.  Zarich doesn't do
much except Flare.  It will kill your Samurai if it hits her.  You can just
revive her with a Phoenix Down or a "free" Mega Phoenix.

When the battle starts, have your Berserker use "No Fear" on herself.  This
will give her Shell and Protect.  So now you have two characters with Shell
and Protect on them.  The only one you really have to worry about dying now
is your Samurai.

*Note: THAT DOESN'T MEAN THE OTHERS WON'T DIE!!

Shell and Protect will help, but there is always a chance they could get
killed anyway depending on their HP.

With your Samurai, attack Tawrich.  It should only take one hit to kill it.
If you are weaker, then take it out the next turn.

With your Alchemist, use a Mega-Potion EVERY TURN!!  If someone dies, revive
them and return to using the Mega-Potion.   If you are feeling good about
your health you can sneak an attack in or a Mix command to do some damage
to Angra Mainyu.

When it is your Berserker's turn again, use Howl to double your max HP.  From
then on, simply attack Angra Mainyu.  If it revives Tawrich, attack it quickly
to kill it and then return to attacking Angra Mainyu.

Use the Samurai's Fingersnap periodically to revert your stats back to normal
if you notice your characters are doing weak damage.

If by chance you don't kill Tawrich quickly enough, it will use Bloody Breath.
This attack can kill you.  Use the Samurai's Clean Slate, the Alchemist's
Remedy Stash, or have the Berserker use a Remedy item to remove the status
effects.

If you wait to long, Perdition's Flame will come out and devastate you even
if you kill Tawrich.  This is because Angra Mainyu will start casting when
Tawrich and Zarich are still alive.  So once you kill one of them, it will be
too late.  Angra Mainyu will still finish the cast and use it.

If this happens, prey that your Protect holds and keeps one of your characters
at the least alive.  Then revive them quickly and get your health back up.

This will be a tough battle, but eventually you will defeat Angra Mainyu.

--


After you take out Angra Maiyu, it's time to go digging.  We need to get some
additional Al Bhed Primers and some parts to raise the "Experiment's" level
so we can defeat it at level 5 for the completion %.

So since this will be ther first major digging event for us, let's go over a
few things.

First off, if you want to go digging in the Central Expanse, you will need to
send a chocobo there.  To do this, simply go to the Chocobo Ranch and send a
chocobo to Bikanel Desert.

*Note: Make sure you send a chocobo that you DON'T want like a chocobo who has
       a max level of 4 or less.  This is because it will not return and you
       will no longer have it.  It runs away.

You don't need to wait until it runs away to dig in the Central Expanse.  As
soon as you send it out, simply return to Bikanel Desert and you will be able
to choose Central Expanse.

In the Central Expanse you will ride a chocobo while digging.

The Central Expanse contains a key item called Desert Key.  This is the key
you need to open the locked treasure chest back at the Al Bhed camp.  Just so
you know ahead of time, it may take a LONG time to find the key.  Some people
get it right away, others it takes hours.  There is no trick to it so you
just have to dig and hope you get it fast.

After you get the Desert Key, return to the camp and use it on the chest to
receive the Horn of Plenty Garment Grid.

Now go and dig in the many areas of the desert and try to gather a bunch of
parts for the Experiment.

More Information Comming Soon...

After finding the parts, head to Djose Temple and defeat the "Experiment" when
it's levels are all at 5 and defeat it.

More Information Comming Soon...


Finally we will tackle Via Infinito.  This dungeon is extremly difficult and
you should be at level 99 for all characters if you want to complete it.  You
can do it at lower levels, but it's very difficult.

So level up to 99 and then head to Bevelle and into Via Infinito starting at
level 20 where we last left off.

Please see the section titled "Via Infinito" in the "Secrets/Sidequests" area
of this FAQ for information on how to gain entry to Via Infinito and how to
complete it.

Okay, now return to the Celsius and talk to Brother to get the Mascot
Dressphere (only if you have Episode Complete! in every area except Bevelle).

That's it, everything is tied up.  You should now be ready to fight the end
boss again and get your 100% Perfect Ending.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[184] -- Farplane ------------------------------------------------------------

Head to the Farplane by speaking to Brother on the bridge of the Celsius and
choosing "Besaid Temple" as the hole you want to jump into.  Choose "Yup" to
go.  You will get a brief scene.  You may encounter an enemy called "Aeshma"
in this area.  It is immune to physical attacks but is weak against Holy
attacks.  So if you see one, use Holy attacks to take it out.

After the scene you will be on a platform.  Jump across to the main path and
follow it along to the first fork.  Take the left path and grab the
Mega-Potion x2 from the chest.  Return to the fork and take the right path
and follow it along until you reach two small platforms.  Take the left
platform to continue.  The other one takes you back to the beginning.

Jump down to the large platform below for a boss battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Shiva
  HP: 14800
  MP: 9999
Weak: Fire
 EXP: 8000

Normal Steal: Snow Ring
  Rare Steal: Snow Ring
 Normal Drop: Crystal Gloves
   Rare Drop: Regal Crown
 Dropped Gil: 2000
Pilfered Gil: 5000

Strategy:
        This battle is very easy.  Shiva has a high evade so use attacks
with high accuracy.  I would use a Gunner's Trigger Happy attack to take her
out quickly.  She is also vulnerable to fire attacks.

--

After you defeat Shiva, a save sphere will appear.  Use it to heal and save.
Now continue on to the far side of the platform and jump to the next path.
Follow it along until you reach the next large platform and another boss
battle.

Name: Cindy, Sandy, Mindy (The Magus Sisters)

  MP: 9999, 9999, 9999
Weak: ??, ??, ??
 EXP: 0, 3000, 3000

 Dropped Gil: 0, 1000, 1000
Pilfered Gil: 0, 3000, 3000

Strategy:
        This battle can be somewhat difficult.  Mostly because the Magus
Sisters are fairly quick and difficult to hit.  I suggest using two Gunners
and a White Mage or Paine as a Trainer so she can use HP Flurry every round.
Mindy will use her Passado attack that will take one of your characters down
to near death.  Sandy will user her Razzia attack that barely does anything
to one character (this is suprising since it was so powerful in Final Fantasy
X).  Cindy will cast Not So Mighty Guard on her and the other two Magus
Sisters, as well as perform her attack, Camisade.  Camisade doesn't do much
damage, around 500 each time, however it takes about two minutes for her to
do it because she does it like 5 times in a row to random characters.

Take Cindy out first because she is the defensive juggernaut of the group and
because her Camisade is just annoying.  Then take out Mindy to stop her
devastating Passado attack.  Lastly, focus on Sandy since she basically does
nothing.

After you defeat the Magus Sisters, continue on down the paths to reach the
next large platform and another boss battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Anima
  HP: 36000
  MP: 9999
Weak: ??
 EXP: 6000

Normal Steal: Fury Shock
  Rare Steal: Fury Shock
 Normal Drop: Tetra Band
   Rare Drop: Tetra Band
 Dropped Gil: 2000
Pilfered Gil: 4000

Strategy:
        This battle is very easy considering we just came from the Magus
Sisters.  Anima is very slow and very weak (in contrast to the Anima from
Final Fantasy X).    When he uses his Pain attack it does around 500-1000
damage to one character.  It might also cause that character to not be able
to act in the battle.  If this happens just toss a Remedy or Esuna spell on
that character to fix it.

Anima's Oblivion attack is just as cool as we remember, however, it is
ridiculously weak.  Maybe 1000 damage to all your characters.  Just keep
attacking Anima and it will go down easily.  Heal your characters when
needed.

--

You will receive the Immortal Soul Garment Grid.

After a brief scene you will find yourself in the Farplane Abyss.  Go left
and find Leblanc, Ormi, and Logos to get a short scene.  Now, use the save
sphere to return to the Celsius.

Talk to Shinra for a short scene and then take the elevator to the Deck on
the Celsius for another scene with Buddy and Brother.  You will receive an Al
Bhed Primer.

Now take the elevator to the Cabin to get a scene with Cid, Brother, and
Rikku.  When the question comes up, respond whatever you want to.  I 
responded that it was primitive.

Now, return to the Bridge and talk to Brother and choose to go to "Kilika
Temple".  Whenn you arrive you will be on a platform.  Hop across to the main
path.  You will notice there are flames along the path.  Simply wait until
the flame dies down before running past it.  If you get hit by the flames,
you will be taken back to an earlier point on the path.  Anyone who plays
any kind of platform games will find this dodging the flames to be quite
simplistic.

Continue down the path and grab the Mana Tonic from the chest you come across.
Eventually you will reach the Farplane Abyss again.  Use the save sphere near
Leblanc and the others to return to the Celsius.

Talk to Brother and choose to go to "Djose Temple" this time.  Follow the path
along and you will come to a group of small little island/platforms.  Jump
onto the right platform and it will take you over to another larger island.

On the far end of the island is a glowing spot.  Touching this spot will reset
the platforms.

                              XXXX            

So, take the lift "S" over to the island.  Walk up to the small platform
marked "A" and press "X".  This brings up a menu and asky which island you
want to push it into.  Choose "3".  Then push plaform "B" into "2", and 
platform "C" into platform "1".

So basically you need to push:
A into 3
B into 2
C into 1

Once you do that, you will notice the three platforms created a bridge you
can now hop across farther up the path.  Take the platform "S" back across
and jump across the left platforms and follow the path around to the newly
created bridge and hop across.  The last platform will take you down to a
larger platform with a save sphere on it.  Go to the far left of the platform
and continue going down the path there.

Right before you reach the next large platform, jump on the small platform
in front of it and it will take you over to a different path.  Jump across 
to the path and open the first chest.  It will be empty.  Then keep going to
find a second chest containing Turbo Ether x2.  Return to the small platform
and go back across and follow the path down again towards the large platform.
Jump across to the large platform.

When you reach the Farplane Abyss again, use the save sphere to return to the
Celsius.  Then speak to Brother and enter via Bevelle.  Simply follow the
path and grab the Elixer along the way.  Once you are back at the Farplane
Abyss again, return to the Celsius via the save sphere and talk to Brother
one last time and enter via the Calm Lands Gorge.

This area will also have the flames from earlier.  Avoid them and keep on
going down the path.  You will see some teleport pads.  They do nothing
but try to disorient you.  Just ignore them and keep on going along the path.
If you get turned around just backtrack and eventually you will make it down
to the last large platform.  At the bottom, a treasure chest will appear.
Grab the Meggido Garment Grid from it.

Now, save at the Farplane Abyss.  When you are ready, walk over into the
red/orange fog.  Choose "Yes" to continue.  At this point in the game I was
at level 65 and I had no problems.

There are some tough enemies inside if you aren't prepared.  Here is a list
of some of the more difficult ones:

Omega Weapon
Adamantortoise
Earth Worm
Great Malboro
Claret Dragon

Each one of these can kill you if you don't pay attention.  They give you
a good amount of experience though so if you are at lower levels you can
level up inside here very quickly.  Just fight a battle or two and go back
out to the Farplane Abyss and heal/save.  Then repeat the process until you
are killing them with ease.

As an aside, the Omega Weapon has a pretty cool looking way of dying.  The 
Great Malboro has an attack called Really Bad Breath that can take you out
easily if you don't have a Ribbon equipped.  However it almost always seemed
to miss me.  Of course, he never really had a chance to do it much since I
was killing him in 3 hits.

The Adamantortoise is the only one you REALLY have to worry about.  Not
because he has super powerful attacks.  It's because he constantly boosts
his defense.  When it gets up to 10 your attacks will be doing around 50
damage each time.  Adamantortoise has 14580 HP, so you can see it can take
a long time to kill him.  One solution is to use the Samurai ability
"Fingersnap" to revert Adamantortoise's defense and strength to normal
levels.  This helps you to kill him very quickly.

If you have a Lure Bangle, you can equip it to increase your random encounters
and level up really fast.  You can also equip the Charm Bangle is you just
want to focus on the puzzles.

When you are ready, you will notice a barrier on the right of the screen.  You
cannot pass the barrier without deactivating it.  To do this, go over to the
left side of the screen and step on a circular symbol on the ground.  This
will bring up a series of musical notes.  Don't worry about memorizing them,
you don't need to.  Now go over to the small piano/keyboard thing and press
"X".  This brings up some sheet music and the keyboard keys.

Simply select the notes in the correct order: So Mi* Re*

Notice there are two sets of notes for Mi and Re, one with the star and one
without.  Just make sure you pick the correct ones with the stars.

Real tough huh?  Yeah, I know...ZzzzZzzz...

This will deactivate the barrier.  Go up the path and take the left path.
You will periodically in this area come to a different kind of barrier with
static/lightning blocking the path.  You will notice that it is intermittent
so just wait until it goes off to pass by it.

At the first barrier you come to will be another circular symbol.  Wait until
the barrier goes off and step on the symbol to get more music notes.

Follow the path and at the next fork, go down/right and at the next barrier
wait until the static stops and step on the symbol to get more notes.  Return
up to the fork to where you see a chest up on a platform to the right.

DO NOT GO PAST THE CHEST!!  If you continue up the main path past the chest
you will be stopped by the next barrier and an enemy named "Azi Dahaka".
I will list his stats here so you can see why I say not to advance.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Azi Dahaka

Weak: None

Now, if you want to, or if you think you are high enough in level, then by all
means, go ahead and take him on.  I would recommend against it unless you have
already defeated Angra Mainyu and completed Via Infinito or are at an extremely
high level.  You don't need to defeat this fiend for the completion %.

So, at the main path, jump up to the ledge on the right where the chest is
and grab the Megalixer.  From the chest, follow the path to the right and
down.  At the end of the path underneath, step on the symbol to get the next
notes.  Now return to the treasure chest and go over to the piano/keyboard
and play the correct notes: Do* Ti La So

This will lower the next barrier.  Return to the main path and go up the the
fork in the road.  Take the up/right fork and about half way up the path, jump
off to the right down to a path below you and step on the symbol to get the
next musical notes.  Now go to the left along the path and it will take you
up to a ledge.  Step on the symbol for more notes.  Now jump down to the fork
in the road and take the up/left path this time.

Along the path step on the symbol for more notes.  After you pass the second
static barrier, climb up onto the ledge on the right.  Don't go too far past
the barrier or you will get "Azi Dahaka" after you again.  Make sure you
climb up onto the ledge on the right.  Up on the ledge, go to the right past
the piano/keyboard to grab a Turbo Ether x3 from the treasure chest.  Return
top the piano and play the correct notes: Fa Mi Fa So Do

You now have all 12 of the musical notes and this will open the last barrier.
Go back to the main path on the left.  Follow the path up to get a scene with
Gippal.  You will receive Paine's Sphere.  You will automatically watch it.

After the scene you will be presented with a new puzzle to step on the
platforms in the correct order that the musical notes were played.  After 
watching the musical notes play press "Square" to exit.

Save you game at the save sphere.  You can talk to Picket to reset the puzzle
or to view the musical notes again.

                       To Farplane Abyss


So take lift "A" to "a" and step on "1", then jump over to "E" and take it to
"e" and jump over and step on "2".  Now take "e" back to "E" and jump over
to "1" and take "a" back to "A" and go back to "S".  Now go over and hop on to
"B" to take you to "b" and then hop onto "D" and take it to "d" and then hop
over and step onto "3".  Then take "d" back to "D" and then "b" back to "B".

Now jump over to "A" and jump over to the platform between "A" and "F".  From
there jump to "F" and take it to the first "f" and then jump to the right to
"4" and step on it.  Hop back on "f" to take it to the second "f" and jump
over to grab the Mega Phoenix x2 from the chest ("T1").  Then jump over and
step on "5".

Now take "f" back to "F".  Then take "F" back to the first "f".  Hop over to
the left and then step on "6".  Jump back over to "f" and take it to the
second "f" and then take it back to "F".  Then go back to "A" and then to "S".

Now go over to "B" and go to "b".  Then jump over to "D" but don't activate
the lift (if you do, just hop back to make it return).  Jump from "D" over
to "C" and take it to "c".  Then jump over and step on "7".  Now jump/climb
up to "G" where the barrier is and step on "G".  This will deactivate the
barrier.

Now go back and save/heal at "S".  Then prepare for the final fight.  Equip
whatever dresspheres/garment grids/accessories you want and head back up to
"G" and head up the path to the final boss.

You will see a brief scene.  Head up the path and climb up all the steps to
the top and you will get a scene with Nooj and the others.  After this long
scene, head up the steps and follow the path and eventually you will come to
the first part of the end battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Vegnagun (Tail)
  HP: 34200
  MP: 9999
Weak: ??
 EXP: 5000

Normal Steal: X-Potion x4
  Rare Steal: X-Potion x6
 Normal Drop: Megalixer
   Rare Drop: Megalixer
 Dropped Gil: 3000
Pilfered Gil: 3000

Strategy:
        This battle is probably the hardest part of the end battle.  The tail
will use a laser attack that does around 1000-1500 damage to one character.
This is easy enough to fix, however its main attack is called "Noli Me...
(something)" and it does around 1500 damage to all your characters.  So keep
yourself healed up at all times.

I used 2 Gunners and one White Mage for this battle.  I equipped my White Mage
with accessories that doubled her HP/MP so she could survive easier and
wouldn't run out of MP.

Cast Protect and Shell on your party with the White Mage right away and then
use her for healing the rest of the time.

Use your two gunners to attack every round with Trigger Happy.  It should go
down fairly quickly.

--

After the battle you will need to help out Leblanc, Ormi, and Logos with the
legs.  When you get control back, heal your characters.  Then go to the far
side of the platform and fall down to the main path.  Follow it along and up
the steps to find Leblanc and the next part of the battle.

 Dropped Gil: 3000, 3000, 3000, 3000
Pilfered Gil: 3000, 10000, 10000, 10000

Strategy:
        This battle is extremely easy if you ignore the Node's, but extremely
difficult if you want to take out the Node's.  The Node's are very difficult
to take out.  So ignore the Node's and focus all attacks on the leg/foot.

I used 2 Gunners and one White Mage for this battle.  I equipped my White Mage
with accessories that doubled her HP/MP so she could survive easier and
wouldn't run out of MP.

Cast Protect and Shell on your party with the White Mage right away and then
use her for healing the rest of the time.

Use your two gunners to attack the leg/foot every round with Trigger Happy.
It should go down fairly quickly.

--

After defeating the leg section, head up the path again and off to the left
you will see some steps with Ormi and Logos on them.  They ask you to help
Leblanc.  Continue up the steps and up the path for a scene with Leblanc, 
Gippal, and Nooj fighting the next part.  You will jump in and take over.

Pilfered Gil: 4000, 300, 300

Strategy:
        This battle is extremely easy.  Using my strategy, I never even got
attacked once.

I used 2 Gunners and one White Mage for this battle.  I equipped my White Mage
with accessories that doubled her HP/MP so she could survive easier and
wouldn't run out of MP.

Cast Protect and Shell on your party with the White Mage right away and then
use her for healing the rest of the time.

Use your two gunners to attack the Left and Right Bulwarks with Trigger Happy.
It should only take one Trigger Happy for each, so you can destroy them both
in one round.  Then focus all your attacks on the Core.  It will eventually
revive the Bulwarks.  Take them out quickly again and focus on the Core again.
It should go down fairly quickly.

--

After you defeat the Core you will get a scene and then another battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Vegnagun (Head), Left Redoubt, Right Redoubt
  HP: 38420, 2500, 2500

 Normal Drop: None, None, None
   Rare Drop: None, None, None
 Dropped Gil: 0, 0, 0
Pilfered Gil: 8000, 350, 350

Strategy:
        This battle is somewhat easy but you can die.  Before you can attack
the Head, you must destroy the Left and Right Redoubts.  

I used 2 Gunners and one White Mage for this battle.  I equipped my White Mage
with accessories that doubled her HP/MP so she could survive easier and
wouldn't run out of MP.

Cast Protect and Shell on your party with the White Mage right away and then
use her for healing the rest of the time.

Use your two gunners to take out the Left and Right Redoubts with Trigger
Happy. The Head casts "Acta Est Fabula" that revives the Redoubts, so when it
does that, take them out again and return focus to the Head.  It also has an
attack called "Necro...(something)" that does about 1000 damage to all your
characters.  It also uses "Lacrimosa" that does minor damage and steals MP.

It should only take one Trigger Happy for each, so you can destroy them both
in one round.  Then focus all your attacks on the Head.  There is a time
limit on this battle so if you mess around too long Vegnagun will fire and
you will lose.  So get moving!

--

After you defeat Vegnagun you will see a brief scene and your final battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Shuyin
  HP: ??
  MP: ??
Weak: ??
 EXP: ??

Strategy:
        This battle is not quite the same token battle like the end of Final
Fantasy X.  It is similar but you actually have the chance of dying so don't
take this battle lightly.  Shuyin attacks with the same overdrives that Tidus
had in Final Fantasy X.  That's right, you'll get Blitz Ace dropped on you
and it will almost certainly kill one of your characters.  Spiral Cut and
Slice and Dice aren't too bad however.  The name of them has changed to Hit
& Run and Spin Cut but they are the same moves.  I'm not sure about Energy
Rain because I've never seen him do it.  I kill him too quickly.

One attack that he does that is new is the "Terror of Zanarkand" that does
around 2500 damage to one character.

I used 2 Gunners and one White Mage for this battle.  I equipped my White Mage
with accessories that doubled her HP/MP so she could survive easier and
wouldn't run out of MP.

Cast Protect and Shell on your party with the White Mage right away and then
use her for healing the rest of the time.

Use your two gunners to take him out quickly using Trigger Happy and he'll go
down without too much effort.

--

After you defeat Shuyin you will see a scene.

******************************************************************************
** Chapter 5 Complete! *******************************************************
******************************************************************************

After a scene you will see Yuna at the Farplane Abyss.  Press "X" immediately
to trigger a whistle.  A Fayth will appear and ask you if you want to see
him again.  Choose "Yes!".

There are 3 possible endings for Final Fantasy X-2.  Here is how to get them.

1. Normal Ending
   Don't get 100% completion and don't perform the whistle at the Farplane
   Abyss during the ending scene.

2. Good Ending
   Don't get 100% completion but perform the whistle at the Farplane Abyss
   during the ending scene.  This will give you some additional scenes in
   addition to the Normal Ending.  The extra scenes will be AFTER the
   credits.

3. Perfect Ending
   Get 100% completion and perform the whistle at the Farplane Abyss during
   the ending scene.  This will give you the Normal and Good endings, and
   after the additional scenes from the Good ending after the credits, you
   will get one extra scene.

After the credits and after the additional scenes (if you got them), you have
the option of saving a new game plus in a slot on your memory card.  This
will allow you to start a new game with most of the stuff you ended the game
with.

SAVE IN A NEW MEMORY CARD SLOT!!

Don't save over your last save or you will lose the ability to use the old 
save.  Save in a new slot!

Congratulations!  You have completed Final Fantasy X-2!

Now what do you want to do?  Well, if you took my suggestion on completing
the game first and then tying up the loose ends, then don't forget to
reload from a save just before the end battle and return to section
"[109] Tie Up Loose Ends" to finish everything and get 100% completion.
Then beat the end boss again and get the Perfect Ending.

If you ignored me or this is your second time through, then load up your
new game plus file and go at it again.  This time, make different choices
throughout the game to see how the game changes.  Like giving the Awesome
Sphere to New Yevon instead of the Youth League.  Catch Rin as the culprit
to get Gippal's Sphere.  All kinds of things.  Have fun!

[300] XIII. Short Walkthrough
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
This is the short walkthrough section of this FAQ.  I will attempt to avoid
spoiling the game when I can.  The game is broken down into several chapters,
however each chapter contains multiple missions.  Since this game is designed
to be completely non-linear, you start the game with the ability to go
anywhere you want.  Certain places/events will trigger the advancement of the
story.  If you simply go from point A to point B in the game to advance the
story, you will miss out on a lot of great content.  This section will
concentrate on simply triggering the events to advance the story.  If you
want to go full out on the game then read the walkthrough section.  If it is
your intent to get 100% completion, consult the 100% Completion Guide section
as you are going through this section.  This section will not cover a huge
amount of details, just the basics.

Head to Djose Temple via the airship.  You will get a scene and a new mission.

Be careful when entering the temple because there are fiends called "Tomb"
inside that use "Stone Breath".  This attack can easily petrify your entire
party giving you the popular "Game Over" screen.  So equip one of your people
with a Ribbon to prevent it.

Enter the temple and head up the steps for a quick scene.  Follow the path up
and all the way to the back of the hallway.  Take a running leap across the
small pit with the broken machina in it.  Grab the Stamina Spring from the 
chest and jump back.  Then go down a little and stand in the center of the 
symbol on the floor and press "X" to take the lift up.

Now go up and grab the Wristband from the treasure chest.  Then go up and push
all the pedestals back until the electric barrier at the doorway is
deactivated.  Now I've heard that the pedestal is random, however for me it
was always the same one.  The top center one.  If you choose the wrong one
then you will get a fight.  Just keep trying until you get it.

After the barrier is deactivated, go up the steps for a quick scene and a
boss battle.

** Mission Complete! **

Yuna will wake up in a chamber.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[321] Chapter 4
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[322] -- Celsius -------------------------------------------------------------

You will be onboard the Celsius at the start of chapter 4.  When you get
control back, take the elevator to the Engine Room and grab the items there.

Now take the elevator to the Cabin and speak to Barkeep and select "Rest".
After resting take the elevator to the Deck.  Go outside and talk to Paine.
After the scene return to the Bridge.

Save the game and it's Commsphere time!

The CommSphere system will be up and running now and as long as you went to
all the locations in the game and saw Shinra plant the CommSphere there then
it will be available to you.

To start off only four of the CommSphere's will be active.  They are Besaid,
Kilika, Mushroom Rock Road, and Bevelle.

First we will look in on Besaid Island.  Talk to Shinra and go to the
CommSphere section.  Once the map comes up you will notice there are only four
blue pulsing circles on the map.  These identify the four places you can look
at for now.  Eventually they will all be available.  For now choose Besaid
Island.  After waiting a moment, pan over to look at Wakka's house.  He will
eventually come out and begin talking to you.  After he is finished and the
scene is over you can leave.

Next we'll look in on Dona at Kilika Island.  After this scene you can leave.

Now look at Mushroom Rock Road and speak to Yaibal.

Finally look at Bevelle and speak to Maroda.

After viewing all four scenes, leave the CommSphere network and talk to 
Buddy on the bridge.  Then speak to Paine.

Talk to Buddy to go to the Moonflow.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[323] -- Moonflow ------------------------------------------------------------

When you arrive at the Moonflow path, head up towards the area where the wagon
is.  You will see Tobli run off ahead.  Follow him.  Eventually you will see
another scene with Tobli running away from some people.  Continue going and
you will see yet another scene.  Head up to the next screen and pass by the
wagon to the next screen with the save sphere.  Now return to the previous
screen heading towards the entrance to the Moonflow.  You will see Tobli run
off again eventually.  Follow him again.

Eventually you will see a hover pass you driven by Tobli back towards the
wagon.  Return to the wagon and you will hear a crash.  When you get to the
wagon you will see Tobli wrecked into the wagon.  Continue going past the 
screen with the save sphere to the shoopuff screen and take the shoopuff
across towards Guadosalam.

On the other side, continue going towards Guadosalam.  You will see a scene
where Tobli gets knocked out of a tree and runs off.  Keep going up the path
and you will get a scene with a shoopuff.  Continue going and when you get to
the Guadosalam entrance, speak to Tobli.

** Mission Complete! **

You will then be back onboard the Celsius.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[324] -- Celsius -------------------------------------------------------------

Once you are back onboard the Celsius, save the game.  Then head to the Cabin
to rehearse for the big concert.

Speak to Rikku in the corner to start this mini-game.  The object is to time
certain movements and musical notes by pressing the correct buttons at the
correct times.

Here is a list of the prizes obtained according to your total groove you
receive:

  --------------------------------------
 | Total Groove    |  Prize             |
 |--------------------------------------|
 |      0-49       |  Pearl Necklace    |
 |     50-99       |  Safety Bit        |
 |    100-149      |  Subliminator      |
 |      150+       |  Shmooth Shailing  |
  --------------------------------------

Now, instead of trying to time everything correctly and in the proccess drive
yourself mad, simply press all four buttons ("X", "O", "Square", & "Triangle")
as many times as you can during the time limit.  Just keep mashing the buttons
until the game stops.

Here is my score by doing this:

  -------------------
 | Your Groove       |
 |-------------------|
 | Rhythm        305 |
 | Fitness       728 |
 | Synch         191 |
 |-------------------|
 | Total Groove  808 |
  -------------------

Yep, needless to say, I got the 150+ prize (Shmooth Shailing).

Now, return to the bridge and talk to Buddy to go to the Thunder Plains.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[325] -- Thunder Plains ------------------------------------------------------

Upon entering the Thunder Plains you will receive a new mission to clean up
the monsters and defeat the boss fiend.

Just head on up the right side of the Thunder Plains (you can just follow the
red arrow on the mini-map) until you see a Hypello standing near the little
off-shoot on the right.  Talk to him to get full HP/MP.

Head on inside the entrance to the right.  At the first fork in the road, go
right and follow the path to grab the X-Potion from the treasure chest.  Now
return to the fork in the path and go left this time.  Pass up the rocks on
the right and head down to the dead end to grab the Haste Bangle from the
chest.  Now return to the rocks and climb up them.  Hang a left and then a
right to grab the Phoenix Down x2 from the chest.

Turn back around and at the fork hang a right and fall down into the pit.  In
the pit hand a right and climb up the rocks to grab the Elixer from the
treasure chest.  Jump back down into the pit and return to the fork and go up
the other set of rocks towards the boss.  Hop across the rocks to fight the
boss Zalamander.

After you defeat the creature, grab the Black Ring from the treasure chest.
Now leave the cave and return to the Thunder Plains.

** Mission Complete! **

You will be back onboard the Celsius.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[326] -- Celsius -------------------------------------------------------------

When you return to the Celsius, speak to everyone except Tobli.  You should
also see a scene where it shows the crowd at the Thunder Plains arguing.
Save the game and when you are ready and confident you have completed
everything in Chapter 4, speak to Tobli and select "On with the show!".

What follows is arguably one of the best CG cutscenes I've seen in a Final
Fantasy game (and I've seen them all).

After the concert, head up to the bridge and speak to Maechen.  Eventually
Buddy will tell you that Leblanc is waiting to speak with you in the Engine
Room.  Now if you speak to Shinra, Leblanc will come bursting onto the bridge
and the scene will continue.  Instead of doing this, go down to the Engine
Room and speak to Leblanc who is waiting down there.  The scene will continue
from there and you will get the Crimson Sphere 5.

******************************************************************************
** Chapter 4 Complete! *******************************************************
******************************************************************************


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[327] Chapter 5.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In Chapter 5 you can go immediately to the end of the game by speaking to
Brother on the bridge.  However you will miss out on a lot of story and
gameplay if you do.  You may also be too weak at the start of Chapter 5.  See
the full walkthrough in this FAQ if you want information on the optional
missions in chapter 5.  If not, let's head to the end of the game.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[328] -- Farplane ------------------------------------------------------------

Head to the Farplane by speaking to Brother on the bridge of the Celsius and
choosing a hole you want to jump down into.  Make your way down the paths
and you will have to fight three different bosses.  After defeating them you
will be at the Farplane Abyss.  Jump in the red/orange fog and you will be at
a new area.

You need to find the musical note pads on the ground and then enter the
correct notes on the nearby piano near each barrier.  This will deactivate
them.  Eventually you will come to a puzzle.  See the full walkthrough for
help on the puzzle.

Continue up the path after the puzzle to encounter the final battle.  It
consists of several parts and then a final battle against a familiar face.

Congratulations!  You have completed Final Fantasy X-2!

[901] XV. Treasure Spheres
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
The [T##] is the search code for Treasure Spheres ONLY.  Use it to search for
specific Treasure Spheres in this section.  First I will list the Treasure
Spheres in the game.  Each Treasure Spheres has its own information about it
such as where it is found and a description of what it contains. Use the
search code listed next to a particular Treasure Sphere to jump to that
section for it or simply scroll down to it.

This section gives you information on all the treasure spheres in the game.
These are viewable by talking to Shinra onboard the Celsius and choosing the
treasure spheres option.

  Awesome Sphere - You receive this sphere after defeating YSLS-Zero.
                   You do not get to keep this sphere and it will not
                   show up on Shinra's Treasure Sphere list.  I just

[902] XVI. Al Bhed Primers
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Al Bhed Primers help you learn the Al Bhed language.  There are 26 of them in
the game.  After you get them all you will understand what everyone is saying
in Al Bhed.  Once you have beaten the game you can play through a new game and
keep all the Primers with you so you can understand what all the Al Bhed were
saying in the beginning of the game.  When you receive an Al Bhed Primer the
primer itself will be random.  So the first primer you get might be I, IV, X,
XXI, or any other number.

In this section I will list all of the primers and what letter they translate.
I will also list where all 26 primers can be found in the game.

[951] -- Unlimited Gil Trick -------------------------------------------------

This trick is done onboard the Celius during chapter 2.

After you pay off O'aka's debt, he will thank you by selling you stuff very
cheap for now.  Simply buy 99 of the cheap items and sell them to Barkeep.
You will make a huge profit and can do this as many times as you want to or
until you get extremely bored.  Once O'aka leaves the ship in the next
chapter, you can no longer do this.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[952] -- Publicity Campaign --------------------------------------------------

Speak with the one of the people at a mini-game in the Calm Lands to start
this quest.

You can choose to campaign for Argent, Inc. or Open Air, Inc.  Each one
provides different prizes.

By campaigning you can open two additional mini-games called "Feed the Monkey"
and Gull Force in the Calm Lands.  In order to do this you must earn a rank
of 3 or more for both companies.

More Information coming soon.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[953] -- Solicate a Wife ------------------------------------------------------

Find a wife for the man's son in the Calm Lands.  Speak with the man at the
travel agency in the center of the Calm Lands to start this quest.

More Information coming soon.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[954] -- Mi'ihen Mystery -----------------------------------------------------

This is a sidequest you must help Rin with to find out the culprit who made 
the machina go crazy and the person responsible for the hover accident.

The possible suspects are Chocobo Eater, Rikku, The Prophet, Calli, and Rin.
You must make it so that the Chocobo Eater or Rikku is the culprit if you
want 100% completion.

More Information coming soon.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[955] -- Cactuar Hunting -----------------------------------------------------

To start off with, there is only one item to be gained from completing this
quest.  The "Covenant of Growth Garment Grid".  It has Double EXP and Double
AP on it.  To get it you simply need to find all 10 gatekeepers and WIN the
shooting mini-game against Frailea (the last cactuar you find). 

YOU DON'T HAVE TO WIN THE MINI-GAME AGAINST ANY OTHER CACTUAR!  ONLY FRAILEA.

To begin this sidequest, go to Bikanel Desert during chapter 3.

Upon entering the Bikanel Desert, you will get a brief scene.  After you get
control back, speak to the Pilot and have him take you to the Cactuar Nation.

This will start a scene with you talking to the Cacti Mother Marnela.  When
the question comes up, choose "That makes perfect sense!" to advance the
story.  When you get control back, talk to the cactus again and she will tell
you about Great Haboob, the Ten Gatekeepers, Cactuar Mothers and then you will
get a new mission to find the Ten Gatekeepers.

During chapter 3 you can only find 6 of them.  The others aren't available
until chapter 5.

To start with your first gatekeeper, find the mother that is awake.  Mothers
that are awake have green waves of light around them like Marnela has.  The
others are all asleep.  After you find one of the Gatekeepers and return it,
another Mother will wake up.  So you have to do them one at a time in order.

Find the mother that is awake (green square on the map).  She will tell you
she is Lobivia's mother and that he was supposed to head north from the Oasis
with his friends.

Return to your hover and go back to camp.  Then talk to the pilot and go to 
the Oasis.  Find Lobivia (the green cactuar on the left).  Now in order to get
one of the gatekeepers you have to play a little mini-game with each one.

The screen will split into 2 vertical panes.  The one on the left will have
three pictures flipping through it.  1 of them will be Lobivia.  The object
is to shoot him when he pops up.  Sometimes you will miss.  The best way to
win is if you do manage to shoot him once, he will spin off the screen for 
moment and come back to the center of his pane.  When he comes back near the
center, shoot again.  Repeat this process until you miss.  Then do it again
until you reduce his life to zero.

You don't have to win the Cactuar mini-game to get the cactuar.  Even if you
lose it will still come with you.

Here are his stats:

----------------
Lobivia         |
----------------|
      HP:   10  |
Strength: 3/10  |
 Agility: 2/10  |
----------------

After you win you will return to the mother.  Then talk to the next mother.
She will be the mother of Toumeya.  She says he went to waters vaster than
our Oasis with white sandy beaches.  Sounds like Besaid Island right?  Yep.

Go to Besaid Island and make your way to the beach.  Go all the way to the
far end of the beach and grab the green Cactuar stuck in the sand.  This is
Toumeya.

 Agility: 3/10  |                                                              
----------------                                                               
                                                                               
After you catch him return to the Celsius and then go to Bikanel Desert.       
Return  to the Cactuar Nation and talk to the Mother (green square on map).    
                                                                               
Find the next Mother (green square on map).  This is Lobeira's Mother.  She    
says he's in a treasure box in a sphere hunters house.  This refers to a       
treasure box in Ormi's room at the Chateau Leblanc.  So let's go there now.    
                                                                               
Return to Guadosalam and go into the secret passage to Ormi's room.  Open the  
box that is moving in Ormi's room.  This is Lobeira.

Return them to their Mother and talk to the next Mother.  She will tell you    
about Islaya.  Islaya is at the Thunder Plains.                                
                                                                               
Go to the Maclania Woods via the airship and go down to the Thunder Plains     
from there.  When you enter the Thunder Plains keep going down until you       
reach the shelter on the left.  Islaya is directly across from the shelter     
to the right side of the screen.

Return him to his Mother and speak to the next Mother.  She will tell you      
about Chiapa but will tell you to leave him alone for now.  So we can't        
continue this quest again until chapter 5.

During chapter 5, when you go to Bikanel Desert for the first time, Nhadala
will approach you and ask you to help the Cactuar Nation because it is
being attacked by a gigantic fiend. 

Once you are in chapter 5, head to Kilika Island.  Go up through the village
and head into the woods.

Once in the forest, take the second fork to the right and follow it along on   
the right side of the path.  When it starts to curve upward press the "O"      
button to jump up to the secret ledge.  Grab the Arcane Lore from the          
treasure chest.  You will also see Chiapa the cactuar lounging there.  Grab    
him.

Let's go to Bikanel Desert via the airship to return Chiapa.  Upon entering
Bikanel Desert, Nhadala will approach you and ask you to help the Cactuar
Nation because it is being attacked by a gigantic fiend (only if you didn't
go there earlier in chapter 5, you won't get the same scene again).            
                                                                               
Talk to the pilot and go to the Cactuar Nation and you will get a scene        
telling you to find the ten gatekeepers again.  Find the green square on the   
mini-map and return Chiapa (we found earlier in Kilika) to his mother.         
                                                                               
Now find the next green square and talk to that mother to get information on   
Erio.  It says he saw some snow and went to a spring.  This tells us he is     
somewhere on Mt. Gagazet.  So let's go there again.  Talk to Picket and        
return to the Al Bhed camp and use the save sphere there to return to the      
airship.  Now go to Mt. Gagazet via the airship.                               
                                                                               
If you start at the bottom of the mountain, take the warp pad up to the        
Mountain Gate and follow the path up to the next screen where there is an      
open area with a cliff edge to the left overlooking the mountain.  Erio is     
near the edge.                                                                 
                                                                               
If you start at the hot springs area, just climb down the cliffs and follow    
the path down until you reach the first screen with snow on it.  It will be    
a large open area with a cliff edge to the left overlooking the mountain.      
Erio is near the edge.

After you get him find the nearest save sphere and return to the Celsius and   
go back to Bikanel Desert.  Return to the Catuar Nation and return Erio to     
his Mother and find the next mother to find out about Bartschella.  It says    
she likes money and is at a sphere hunter's house.  This refers to Dona's      
house in Kilika.                                                               
                                                                               
Return to the airship and then go to Kilika.  Go to Dona's house and           
Bartschella is directly on the left upon entering.

After you get her find the nearest save sphere and return to the Celsius and   
go back to Bikanel Desert.  Return to the Catuar Nation and return Bartschella 
to her Mother and find the next mother to find out about Frailea.  It says he  
falls in with the wrong crowd sometimes.  This tells us he is inside the rogue 
cactuar lair.                                                                  
                                                                               
Talk to Marnela to get a new mission to find the 10th cactuar.  This will take 
you into the rogue cactuar lair, Cactuar Hollow.  Follow the path along and    
eventually you will get a scene after a random encounter where the cactuars    
shoot a fiend to make it much larger.  From here on all the fiends in random   
encounters will be over-sized fiends.                                          
                                                                               
At the first fork, take the up path and climb up on the rocks to grab an       
Ether from the treasure chest.  Now climb back down and take the right fork    
this time.  Fall down into the sand and you will find out it is a trap.  The   
sand will slowly rise and you must try and make it to the other side before    
it gets to high.                                                               
                                                                               
Don't panic!  You can do this as many times as you want.  In fact, to get all  
the items along the way you will have to do it several times.  Each time you   
don't make it you will be placed back at the waterfall cliffs area where we    
just got the Ether.                                                            
                                                                               
So, make your way along and grab all the items you can.  Take your time not    
to miss anything.  I will list the items in the order they are found along     
the path.                                                                      
                                                                               
Faerie Earrings, Ether, Hi-Potion, Megalixer, Twist Headband, Ether, Mute      
Shock, Beaded Brooch, & Phoenix Down.                                          
                                                                               
At the end of the path you wil have to climb up from the side and jump across  
to get up to the ledge.  Keep going down the path and you will eventually      
run into Frailea.

Now Frailea has two cactuars with him.  The way to tell which one is him,      
simply look at their mouths as they flip through.   Frailea has an oval        
shaped mouth.  The other two have a flat top part on their mouths.

You don't have to defeat Frailea now if you don't want to.  You will still
be able to challenge him later to try and get the "Covenant of Growth
Garment Grid".  However, before you can challenge him again you will have to
defeat Angra Mainyu.  One of the most difficult bosses in the game!
                                                                               
After you get him you will have to fight a boss battle.                        
                                                                               
-- Boss Battle --                                                              
Name: Jumbo Cactuar, Cactuar x2                                                
  HP: 22222, 2002                                                              
  MP: 1111, 120                                                                
 EXP: 0, 0                                                                     
                                                                               
Normal Steal: Stamina Tonic, None                                              
  Rare Steal: Stamina Tonic x2, None                                           
 Normal Drop: Stamina Tonic, None                                              
   Rare Drop: Rabite's Foot, None                                              
 Dropped Gil: 0, 120                                                           
Pilfered Gil: 0, 180                                                           
                                                                               
Strategy:                                                                      
        This battle isn't too difficult unless you get the misfortune of       
the Jumbo Cactuar going into oversoul mode.  The Jumbo Cactuar just sits there 
doing nothing except casting Hastega on itself and the smaller cactuars.  So   
ignore it and focus on killing the smaller cactuars first.                     
                                                                               
I would recommend using 1 or 2 gunners for this battle.  They can easily kill  
the smaller cactuars in one Trigger Happy.  Use Trigger Happy against them     
because their evasion is so high that you can hardly hit them otherwise.       
                                                                               
After they are gone take out the Jumbo Cactuar quickly.  You shouldn't have    
any trouble with this battle.  If the Jumbo Cactuar goes into oversoul form    
then it will start using high level Black Magic spells along with Flare so     
you could have problems then.  Just hope that doesn't happen.                  
                                                                               
The rare drop for this battle is a Rabite's foot.  Try to get this item if     
you can because it gives you Luck +100 which is an excellent accessory.        
                                                                               
--                                                                             
                                                                               
** Mission Complete! **                                                        
                                                                               
Now, leave the Cactuar Hollow and you will get a scene with a new mission to   
defeat the desert fiend.                                                       
                                                                               
Now this battle is one of the most difficult in the game (except for the       
Via Infinito area).  If you feel the urge to take him on now, go for it.  I    
would suggest skipping it for now unless you are at around level 70 or higher. 
You can defeat it at low levels around 50, however it takes some round about   
strategy and a bit of work.                                                    
                                                                               
Choose "Yes" to return to he airship instead of fighting it now.               

That's it for the Cactuar Hunting sidequest!

-- [C01] Opening the Chocobo Ranch -------------------------------------------

The Chocobo Ranch is located at the old monster arena in the Calm Lands.  To
the far right of the screen is a small path that leads you to it.  During
chapter 1 you cannot gain access to it.  In order for the Chocobo Ranch to
open, you must perform certain events throughout the game.

The soonest you can get the Chocobo Ranch to open is chapter 2.  You can also
get it to open later if you wait, however, if you miss certain key events, the
Chocobo Ranch will NEVER open no matter what you do.

Here is the best way to open the Chocobo Ranch:

 - During chapter 1, visit Mushroom Rock Road and speak to the Youth League
   members just up the path on the left.  Talk to Clasko and follow him to
   start a new mission to try and reach the Youth League Headquarters by
   getting past the fiends along the way under the cover of fog.  The key here
   is making sure that you talk to Clasko himself and choosing to follow him.
 
 - After receiving a Mission Complete! by reaching the Youth League
   Headquarters, return to Mushroom Rock Road via the airship.  From the save
   sphere, head up the path and up on the right you will find Clasko.   Speak
   with him and choose "The more the merrier!" when he asks to come aboard
   your airship.

 - During chapter 2, visit Mi'ihen Highroad.  Go inside the travel agency to
   in the middle of the Mi'ihen Highroad to trigger a short segment.  Then
   head outside to follow the girl to the cliff edge over-looking the water.
   Speak with the girl named Calli.  After a quick scene choose "Of course"
   to helping her catch a chocobo.  This will initiate a new mission to try
   and catch a chocobo.  During the mission, Clasko will fly down on a
   chocobo and help you (see the walkthrough section of this FAQ for help
   on completing the mission).

 - After receiving a Mission Complete! by catching a chocobo and saving
   Calli, return to Mi'ihen Highroad and go back to the travel agency.  Find
   Clasko standing near the agency and talk to him.  Choose "All aboard!" to
   have him, Calli, and the chocobo board the Celsius.

 - Now, after you get Clasko onboard the airship, go to the Calm Lands and
   enter it via the airship.  You will see a scene with him talking about
   his fate and then he'll run off to the old monster arena.  When you get
   control back, follow him and enter the monster arena at the far right of
   the Calm Lands.  Talk to him inside and choose to help him.  This will
   start a new mission to wipe out all the fiends inside the ruins (see the
   walkthrough section of this FAQ for help on completing the mission).

 - After you complete the mission to clear out the fiends inside the old
   monster arena, the Chocobo Ranch will open.


If you don't talk to Clasko in chapter 1, all is not lost, simply speak to him
during chapter 2.  After you talk to him he will run off.  Now complete the
same tasks listed above as though he didn't run off.

If you do not talk to him in chapters 1 or 2, then the Chocobo Ranch will
NEVER open.

*See Secrets/Sidequests section (Chocobo Ranch Secret Dungeon) to find out how
 to open this hidden dungeon.

Clasko is the key to the Chocobo Ranch.  After you open the ranch, he will be
inside of it taking care of it.  Here is a list of what you can do when you
speak to Clasko along with a brief explanation of what each one is used for:

 - Raise Chocobos
   This menu item allows you to raise the level of your chocobos.   

 - Feed Chocobos      
   This menu item allows you to raise the "heart" of your chocobos.

 - Browse Chocobos    
   This menu item browses your current chocobos and gives you their stats.

 - Nutritive Greens   
   This menu item allows you to change the mix of greens you collect for
   Clasko.   

 - Dispatch Chocobos
   This menu item is used to send Choco Runners out into Spira.
   
 - Change Roster
   This menu item allows you to switch Choco Runners with Choco Reserves.

 - Release Chocobos
   This menu item allows you to get rid of unwanted chocobos.  They will
   be gone forever when you release them.

 - Junk Food
   This menu item is used to get more Gysahl Greens to be used to catch
   chocobos.

 - Help
   This menu item brings up a virtually worthless help index on chocobos.


-- [C03] Catching Chocobos ---------------------------------------------------

Initially, all the stalls will be empty.  In order to use chocobos, you have
to catch them first.  You will need to catch at least one chocobo before the
end of Chapter 3 to get the completion percentage.  There are many areas in
Spira where you can catch chocobos.  First, you will need to speak to Clasko
to get some Gysahl Greens.  Go inside the ranch and speak to him at location
{C} on the map.  Sometimes Clasko will not be there because he is running 
around in the ranch.  If you see him you can talk to him and he will
automatically bring you back to location {C}.  The easiest way is to simply
go to location {C} and if he isn't there, a small chocobo-shaped whistle/bell
will be on the floor.  You can use it to call Clasko back.  Talk to Clasko and
he will give you some Gysahl Greens and Pahsana Greens the first time you speak
to him.

Now let's head just outside the ranch to the Calm Lands and catch us a
chocobo.

Walk around the Calm Lands until you get an encounter with a chocobo.  When
the battle starts, quickly use the item Gysahl Greens on the chocobo before
taking any other action.  Then kill the enemies quickly. Once the chocobo is
alone, give it another Gysahl Green to catch it.  After you catch a chocobo,
it will automatically be sent to the Chocobo Ranch.

Note: A chocobos level is very important.  See the section on Chocobos Level
      for more information.  The level will determine if you should keep the
      chocobo or let it go.

Okay, so now that we have caught ourselves a chocobo, let's talk some more
about the map.  The numbers 1-4 on the map are your Choco Runners.  The
numbers 1R-10R are your Choco Reserves.  The ranch can hold up to 14 chocobos
at once.  If you catch more than 14, any extra ones will be automatically
released.  So NEVER catch more than 14 at one time.

The first 4 chocobos you catch automatically get assigned as a Runner.  The
next 10 will be Reserves.  Now, you can speak to Clasko and change the roster
at anytime to switch them around.

So what's the purpose of the Runners versus Reserves you ask?  Well, the
entire purpose of the Chocobo Ranch is simply to send chocobos out into Spira
and hope they return safely with treasure.  The majority of the items they
find are worthless however.

So, why do it?  Well, because you have to if you want to unlock certain secret
dungeons that contain AWESOME items/accessories.

Chocobo Runners are the only chocobos that you can send out to look for stuff.
Your reserves just sit around doing nothing.  It is good to have Choco Reserves
because occasionally, your Choco Runner will not come back.  So instead of
having to go out and catch one to replace it, you have one ready and waiting.

Chocobos have a high chance of not returning when you send a chocobo with low
heart to an environment that they don't really like.

So how do you know what they like and what's all this talk about heart?  I'll
get to that in a little while.


-- [C04] Chocobos Type -------------------------------------------------------

Unlike some previous Final Fantasy games, there are no colored chocobos in the
game.  There are no, red, blue, black, etc.  There is simply one yellow/gold
colored type of chocobo in the game.  However they do have different nature's.

There are three types of nature a chocobo can have: Timid, Normal, & Bold
Each type is suitable for different places around Spira.  So in order to get
items from all the different areas, you will need all three types unless you
like waisting your time watching chocobos run away.

Now, certain types of chocobos are more frequent in certain parts of Spira.
For example, if you wanted to catch a whole bunch of "bold" chocobos, you 
would find lots of them in Kilika Woods, Thunder Plains, or Bikanel Desert.
So you would think that by sending a "bold" chocobo to those places would be
where that type of chocobo is best suited.  Nope!  It doesn't.  Don't ask me
why, it doesn't make sense to me.

Here is a list of where to "CATCH" certain types of chocobos:

  --------------------------------------------------------------------------
 | Location                                           Timid   Normal  Bold  |
 |--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Besaid Island, Moonflow, Macalania Woods         |  80%  |  10%  |  10%  |
 | Kilika Island, Thunder Plains, Bikanel Desert    |  10%  |  10%  |  80%  |
 | Djose Highroad, Calm Lands                       |  10%  |  80%  |  10%  |
  --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Using the chart above you can easily find the type of chocobo you are looking
for.  Simply go to the place where 80% of the chocobos are of the type you
want.


-- [C05] Sending Out Chocobos (Dispatching) ----------------------------------

Here is a list of where to "DISPATCH" certain types of chocobos:

  --------------------------------------------------------------------------
 | Chocobo Type      Locations                                              |
 |--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Timid          |  Kilika Island, Thunder Plains, Bikanel Desert          |
 | Normal         |  Besaid Island, Moonflow, Macalania Woods               |
 | Bold           |  Djose Highroad, Calm Lands                             |
 | Any Type       |  Mi'ihen Highroad, Mushroom Rock Road, Mt. Gagazet,     |
 |                |  Zanarkand Ruins                                        |
  --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Using the chart above, you will notice that four locations do not have a
specific type associated with them.  I have listed these locations as using
"Any Type".  There is no specific type better suited for these locations and
if you send a chocobo to them, there is a chance it will run away.
Unfortunately it is a risk you have to take if you want the items from those
areas.

If you send a chocobo to the wrong area, it has a very high chance of running
away.  DON'T DO IT!

To send a chocobo out, simply talk to Clasko and choose "Dispatch Chocobos"
and choose where to send it.

After you send one or more chocobos out, you will have to fight 8 random
battles before they will return.  After 8 battles, simply return to the
chocobo ranch and speak to Clasko to find out if they returned safely and if
they found anything.

*Note: There is a trick you can use here.  BEFORE talking to Clasko to see if
       your chocobos returned/got any items, you can save the game.  Then talk
       to Clasko.  If any of your chocobos ran away, simply reset the game
       (L1, L2, R1, R2, SELECT, START) and talk to him again.  Repeat this
       process until they all return safely.  That way you don't have to
       worry about ever losing a chocobo.

Now, when you send a chocobo out it will either return with nothing, return
with 1 to 4 items, run away, or sometimes if it can't find anything, it will
return with a Garment Grid as a consolation item.


-- [C06] Chocobos Heart ------------------------------------------------------

When you send a chocobo out to a location it loses something called "Heart".
The heart of a chocobo ranges from 0-100.  When you catch a chocobo the, its
heart will be at 100.  As you send it out places, it will descrease.

If you send a chocobo to a location it likes it will only lose 15 heart.
If you send a chocobo to a location it doesn't like it will lose 60 heart.
If you send a chocobo to a location it is impartial to it will lose 30 heart.

The only time you should be sending a chocobo to a location other than one
that it likes, is when you send one to an "Any Type" location I have listed
above.  In these cases it will lose 30 heart.  All other times it will only
lose 15 heart if you use my chart above.  USE THE CHART!  Don't worry about
all the other possibilites of sending them to the other locations.  IT IS
POINTLESS!

Everytime a chocobo returns, replenish its heart by choosing the "Feed
Chocobos" option when talking to Clasko.  This will bring up a list of all
your chocobos.  Next to each chocobo will be the amount of its heart.  Select
the chocobos with less than 100 heart and select the menu item that says
"Enough to fully restore its heart".  Th will automatically feed the chocobo
enough Pahsana Greens to refill its heart to 100.

ALWAYS keep your chocobos heart at 100.  This reduces the chance of it running
away when you send it out and it increases the chances of getting better items.

Also, the more chocobos you have at the ranch, the less likely one of them
will not return when sent out.  This is because they get to know the other
chocobos and start to bond with them, thus giving them a reason to come back
(this is my own made up reason).


-- [C07] Chocobos Level (Raising chocobos) -----------------------------------

Chocobo levels are very simple.  To raise the level of a chocobo, you must 
feed it, Pahsana Greens, Mimett Greens, or Sylkis Greens.  Simply use the
"Raising Chocobos" menu item when speaking to Clasko, and feed it the
appropriate number of greens to increase its level.

Here is a chart:
 
  ---------------------------------------------------
 | Chocobo Level       Greens Needed For Next Level  |
 |---------------------------------------------------|
 |      1              10 Pahsana Greens             |
 |      2              10 Mimett Greens              |
 |      3              30 Mimett Greens              |
 |      4              40 Sylkis Greens              |
 |      5              Cannot advance, maximum level |
  ---------------------------------------------------

    NOT ALL CHOCOBOS CAN REACH THE MAXIMUM LEVEL!!

As you can see from my note, not all chocobos can advance to the maximum level.
Many of them cannot even reach level 3.  There are very few that can reach
level 5.

How do I check?  Well, enter the Chocobo Ranch and walk up to one of the
chocobos (NOT CLASKO!).  I say not Clasko because he does not have the
information we are looking for at the moment.  Walk up to a chocobo in its
stall at the ranch and press "X" to bring up some information on the chocobo.

Amoung the information that pops up is a "Max Level" stat.  If the max level
of the chocobo is 5, then keep it.  If it is anything less than 5, then let it
go.  There is no reason to keep it.  After you get 4 chocobos with a max level
of 5, you can keep all the other ones that can't reach level 5 to fill up your
ranch and reduce the possibility of them running away.  But you need 4 with a
max level of 5 for a secret sidequest in the game.

The next section contains information on how to collect the greeens you need
to level them up.


-- [C08] Collecting Greens ---------------------------------------------------

Greens are the method for catching chocobos, refilling their heart, and
raising their levels.  You automatically collect greens by fighting random
battles. The "Nutritive Greens" menu item when speaking to Clasko is the key
to managing greens.  You can change the ratio percentage of what greens you
receive using this menu.

Gysahl Greens are not part of the Nutritive Greens and the ratio of how many
you receive cannot be changed.  You will always receive the following amount
of Gysahl Greens during the corresponding chapter:

  ------------------------------------
 | Chapter       # of Gysahl Greens   |
 |------------------------------------|
 |    1     |         None            |
 |    2     |   5 every 12 battles    |
 |    3     |   5 every 10 battles    |
 |  4 & 5   |   5 every 6 battles     |
  ------------------------------------

Talk to Clasko and look at the Junk Food menu item to get more Gysahl Greens.

Pahsana, Mimett, and Sylkis Greens are also received through random battles.
By default, the ratio of these greens you receive when fighting battles is
set to 100% Pahsana Greens.  So if you don't change the ration manually
during the game, you will end up with thousands of Pahsana Greens at the end
of the game and zero Mimett and Sylkis greens.  Here is a chart of the number
of Nutritive Greens you will receive during the corresponding chapter.

           Nutritive Greens
   (Pahsana, Mimett, & Sylkis Greens)
  ------------------------------------
 | Chapter    # of Nutritive Greens   |
 |------------------------------------|
 |    1     |         None            |
 |  2 & 3   |   10 every 6 battles    |
 |  4 & 5   |   10 every 5 battles    |
  ------------------------------------

*Note: Mimett Greens aren't available until chapter 3.
       Sylkis Greens aren't available until chapter 5.

Now for an example.  You haven't touched your ratio settings so right now it
says 100% Pahsana Greens. Say you are in chapter 5 and you just fought 100
battles. You haven't spoken to Clasko about greens yet.  So you have 200
Nutritive Greens waiting for you.  At this point they have not been distributed
using the ratio's you have assigned.

Talk to Clasko and choose the "Nutritive Greens" menu item.  It will show you
your current ratio settings and ask you if you want to change them.  If you
choose "No, this is fine" you will get 200 Pahsana Greens.

However, if you choose "Yes, please" you will get another screen asking you to
define new ratio's.  

So we decide to change it to:

 - 10% Pahsana Greens
 - 10% Mimett Greens
 - 80% Sylkis Greens

After choosing the new ratio, confirm your choices and you will see that you
received 20 Pahsana Greens, 20 Mimett Greens, and 160 Sylkis Greens.

So the distribution does not occur until you go into the "Nutritive Greens"
menu item and confirm your ratio settings.


-- [C09] Items/Accessories Chocobos Can Find ---------------------------------

More Information Coming Soon...


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[957] -- Chocobo Ranch Secret Dungeon ----------------------------------------

If you successfully opened the Chocobo Ranch over the course of the game, you
can access a secret dungeon within the Chocobo Ranch.  Gaining access to the
hidden dungeon takes a good deal of time and work.

You can only access this secret dungeon in CHAPTER 5!  The only reason you
cannot open the Chocobo Ranch Secret Dungeon earlier in the game is because
you need Sylkis Greens to raise level 5 chocobos and you need level 5 chocobos
to open the dungeon.  Sylkis Greens aren't available until chapter 5.

Now, I will not discuss in detail how the Chocobo Ranch works and how you
level up chocobos, etc... in this section because I cover all that in the
previous section "Chocobo Ranch".  See that section for details.


OPENING THE SECRET DUNGEON
--------------------------

To open the entrance to the secret dungeon, you will need to perform the
following actions:

 - Raise 4 level 1 chocobos
 - Send 3 of them out and have all return safely
 - Raise 4 level 2 chocobos
 - Send 3 of them out and have all return safely
 - Raise 4 level 3 chocobos
 - Send 3 of them out and have all return safely
 - Raise 4 level 4 chocobos
 - Send 3 of them out and have all return safely
 - Raise 4 level 5 chocobos
 - Send 3 of them out and have all return safely
 - Leave the chocobo ranch and re-enter it to see a scene where Clasko tells
   you the chocobos found a secret dungeon
 - Go to the back of the Chocobo Ranch and find the new corridor and jump
   down into the hole (Chocobo Ranch Secret Dungeon)

Yep, that's it.  It seems like an easy task, however, it will take some time
and isn't as easy as it seems.  Now I'll go into great detail on exactly how
to go about completing this task.

If you're like me, you didn't mess with the Chocobo Ranch at all once it 
opened until chapter 5.  So to start with, enter the Chocobo Ranch and speak
to Clasko and choose "Nutritive Greens".  When the menu pops up and asks you
if you want to change the ratio, say "YES!".  This is because the game
automatically sets the ratio of Nutritive Greens to 100% Pahsana Greens.
If you choose "No" then you will end up with a couple thousand Pahsana Greens
that you don't need.

So choose "Yes" you want to change the ratio's.  Change them to something like
50% Pahsana Greens, 25% Mimett Greens, and 25% Sylkis Greens.  That way you
will have a good supply of all the greens.  You will need more Pahsana Greens
than any because Pahsana Greens are not only used to level up your chocobo, 
but also to raise their heart.

Okay, so now we are ready to begin.

To reach the secret dungeon, you will need 4 chocobos that are able to reach
level 5 (max level).

NOT ALL CHOCOBOS CAN REACH THE MAXIMUM LEVEL!!

As you can see from my note, not all chocobos can advance to the maximum level.
Many of them cannot even reach level 3.  There are very few that can reach
level 5.

How do I check?  Well, enter the Chocobo Ranch and walk up to one of the
chocobos (NOT CLASKO!).  I say not Clasko because he does not have the
information we are looking for at the moment.  Walk up to a chocobo in its
stall at the ranch and press "X" to bring up some information on the chocobo.

Among the information that pops up is a "Max Level" stat.  If the max level
of the chocobo is 5, then keep it.  If it is anything less than 5, then let it
go.  There is no reason to keep it right now.

I had 35 chocobos so when I spoke to Clasko for the first time in chapter 5 he
told me he had to let 21 go!  This is because he can only hold 14 at a time.

So, if you previously caught any chocobos up to this point in the game, simply
walk to every single stall and see if you have and chocobos with a max level
of 5.  If you do, remember what number they are.

Now return to Clasko and release EVERY chocobo that did NOT have a max level
of 5.  BE CAREFUL!  When you release a chocobo, Clasko will tell you that
another chocobo replaces it in line.

Example Roster:

 - Choco Runner 1
 - Choco Runner 2
 - Choco Runner 3
 - Choco Runner 4
 - Choco Reserve 1
 - Choco Reserve 2
 - Choco Reserve 3

Now, I tell Clasko to release Choco Reserve 1.  Clasko will tell me that
Choco Reserve 3 takes its place.  So if Choco Reserve had a max level of 5, I
need to make sure that I remember that he got moved to Choco Reserve 1 so that
I don't release him on accident.

The basic rule is that if you release a chocobo, then the LAST chocobo on the
roster will fill the slot and all the others will stay in the same place.  If
you release the last chocobo on the roster, nothing will change.

Confused?  Good.  Me too...

Most likely, you will end up with an empty ranch after releasing all the
worthless chocobos.  If you were lucky and had a few max level 5 chocobos
then good for you.  If you had 4 max level 5 chocobos, then you can skip down
to where I talk about raising them.

If you were like me and had none, then we'll be heading out to find some.  Now
it doesn't matter what kind of chocobos you go after (Timid, Normal, Bold).
The only thing that matters is that they have an available max level of 5.

We will be heading off to Kilika to find us some Bold chocobos, simply because
Kilika has a very high rate of chocobo encounters.  This will help us get it
done faster.  If you want to go off and find chocobos somewhere else, then go
for it.

Head to Kilika Island via the airship and go all the way through town to the
entrance to Kilika Woods.  Enter the woods and save the game at the save
sphere.  Now walk up a little to the crossroads area near the save sphere.

Equip a Lure Bracer on one of your characters.  Now, go into your items and
reorder your items manually and place "Gysahl Greens" as the first item in
the list.  You don't have to do either of these things, but they will make
the process faster because you will get in an encounter every couple steps and
you won't have to scroll down the items list everytime to find the "Gysahl
Greens" to feed the chocobos.

Walk around in a circle at the crossroads until you get an encounter with a
chocobo.  When the battle starts, quickly use the item Gysahl Greens on the
chocobo before taking any other action.  Then kill the enemies quickly. Once
the chocobo is alone, give it another Gysahl Green to catch it.  After you
catch a chocobo, it will automatically be sent to the Chocobo Ranch.

Catch as many chocobos as you can until the ranch is full.  I needed to catch
14 since my ranch was empty.  After you catch enough, return to the airship
via the save sphere and return to the Chocobo Ranch at the Calm Lands.

Enter the ranch and save the game.  Now walk around to all of your chocobos
again and see if you got any max level 5 chocobos.  I was lucky and got 5 of
them in my first try.  You only need 4.  If you did not get enough, release
the ones you don't need and do the same process over again until you get 4
of them.

If you did get 4 max level 5 chocobos, keep all the chocobos.  Don't release
any.  This is because chocobos have a better chance of returning when the
ranch is full.

You will notice that most if not all the ones you caught are Bold.  This is
because 80% of the chocobos in Kilika Woods are Bold.

Now, once you have all 4 max level 5 chocobos, save the game.  All chocobos
start at level 1 and have 100 heart.  Talk to Clasko and set all 4 max level
5 chocobos to be your Choco Runners.  Now, talk to Clasko and Dispatch Choco
Runners 1, 2, & 3 to a location below that suits them.  Leave Choco Runner 4
alone.

Here is a list of where to "DISPATCH" certain types of chocobos:

  --------------------------------------------------------------------------
 | Chocobo Type      Locations                                              |
 |--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Timid          |  Kilika Island, Thunder Plains, Bikanel Desert          |
 | Normal         |  Besaid Island, Moonflow, Macalania Woods               |
 | Bold           |  Djose Highroad, Calm Lands                             |
  --------------------------------------------------------------------------

You probably have all Bold chocobos, so send them to either the Calm Lands or
Djose Highroad.

Now go outside to the Calm Lands (or any area you want) and fight 8 random
encounters.  Leave the Lure Bracer on to increase encounters.  After 8 or more
battles, return to the Chocobo Ranch and SAVE THE GAME!

Save the game before talking to Clasko!!

Then talk to Clasko and he will tell you if your chocobos returned and give
you any items they found.  If all 3 did not return safely, reset the game and
talk to Clasko again.  Repeat this process until all 3 return safely.

Once you have all 3 safely returned, talk to Clasko and choose "Raise
Chocobos".  Feed all 4 Choco Runners 10 Pahsana Greens to increase their level
to 2.

Dispatch them to the same area again, fight 8 battles, save the game, then
speak to Clasko.  Reset and talk to him again until all 3 return safely.

Once you have all 3 safely returned, talk to Clasko and choose "Raise
Chocobos".  Feed all 4 Choco Runners 10 Mimett Greens to increase their level
to 3.

Dispatch them to the same area again, fight 8 battles, save the game, then
speak to Clasko.  Reset and talk to him again until all 3 return safely.

Once you have all 3 safely returned, talk to Clasko and choose "Raise
Chocobos".  Feed all 4 Choco Runners 30 Mimett Greens to increase their level
to 4.

Dispatch them to the same area again, fight 8 battles, save the game, then
speak to Clasko.  Reset and talk to him again until all 3 return safely.

Once you have all 3 safely returned, talk to Clasko and choose "Raise
Chocobos".  Feed all 4 Choco Runners 40 Sylkis Greens to increase their level
to 5.

Dispatch them to the same area again, fight 8 battles, save the game, then
speak to Clasko.  Reset and talk to him again until all 3 return safely.

Now, leave the Chocobo Ranch and return.  If you did everything correctly,
a scene will begin where Clasko tells you about a secret dungeon that has
opened up.

At the back of the Chocobo Ranch is a new corridor and a hole you can jump
into.  Before jumping into it, save the game.

Now return to the hole in the floor and jump down into it to enter the Chocobo
Ranch Secret Dungeon.

                          To Chocobo Ranch                                     

So there you have it.  The layout of the Chocobo Ranch Secret Dungeon.  Pay
close attention to the floor height changes when you are navigating the
dungeon.  Sometimes you will have to jump down into a pit to get an item but
will not be able to get back out the way you came.  So you will have to circle
back around.  It can be quite confusing and disorienting if you don't pay
attention.  Just keep your eye on the map above and you should be able to
get around pretty easily.

Now, first off, go to "AE" on the map.  When you get to it you will notice
that it seems like a dead end.  Just press "X" up against the dead end wall
and it will open to reveal a boss fight.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Anything Eater
  HP: 11600
  MP: 310
Weak: None
 EXP: 3400

Normal Steal: Mega-Potion
  Rare Steal: Mega-Potion x2
 Normal Drop: Power Gloves
   Rare Drop: Power Gloves
 Dropped Gil: 1500
Pilfered Gil: 3000

Strategy:
        This battle isn't too difficult.  Just use physical attacks against
him.  Do not use magic, it will be reflected.  All of Anything Eater's attacks
only damage one character, so just revive/heal them when needed and attack
with the others.  He'll go down in no time at all.

--

After you defeat Anything Eater, open the next door ahead of you.  Now simply
go around the dungeon and grab all the items and open all the other doors
EXCEPT the door leading to the Amazing Chocobo.  Don't open that door until
you have everything from the dungeon.  This is because after you receive
the Amazing Chocobo, you will be taken out of the dungeon.  It doesn't really
matter because you can just go back inside, but why bother when you can get it
all at once.

After you get everything and open all the other doors, open the door to the
Amazing Chocobo "AC" on the map.  You will get a scene and the Amazing Chocobo
will be yours!

That's everything for the Chocobo Ranch Secret Dungeon!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[958] -- Amazing Chocobo -----------------------------------------------------

The Amazing Chocobo is found in the Chocobo Ranch Secret Dungeon.  Please see
that section for information on how to get it.

The Amazing Chocobo is a chocobo that once you get it, will never run away
and can help keep regular chocobos from running away.  The downside is that
it takes twice as many battles for it to return than regular chocobos and if
you use it to help regular chocobos, it will take the regular chocobos twice
as long to return as well.

In other words, it's pretty much worthless.  The real benefit of the Chocobo
Ranch Secret Cave is the items it has in it.  The Amazing Chocobo is just an
extra.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[959] -- Mi'ihen Highroad Secret Dungeon -------------------------------------

There is a secret cave opened by chocobos on this road.  Simply send a high
level chocobo to Mi'ihen Highroad.  It will discover the cave.  Once the cave
is discovered, you can enter it buy going to Mi'ihen Highroad.  At the end
of the road, take the down/right fork into the lower area.  The cave entrance
is in the large open area near the save sphere.

More Information coming soon.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[960] -- Thunder Plains Secret Dungeon ---------------------------------------

During Chapter 5 the Thunder Plains contains a secret cave.  When you travel
there you will have to eliminate fiends at all ten lightning towers.  After
taking out the tenth one a secret cave will open up.  You can go to it by
talking to an Al Bhed standing near the 10th tower.

After entering the cave you will have to make your way through it and fight
a boss.  After you do that and you will be taken to the Celsius.

Now, before we return to the secret cave again, we first need to equip a
Charm Bangle to prevent random encounters.  This will make it much easier to
complete the sidequest.

MAKE SURE YOU EQUIP THE CHARM BANGLE!

Return to the Thunder Plains and talk to the same Al Bhed who will take you
to the secret dungeon again and choose "Yup, in the hole." again.

This time upon entering the cave you will get a brief introduction on the
sidequest in the cave.

After the introduction, you will see two boxes on your screen.  One in the
top left corner of the screen and one in the bottom right corner of the
screen.

Top left box:

  ------------
 | [] No Data | (Yellow text)
  ------------

Bottom right box:

  --------
 | []>> # | (Yellow text)
 |        | 
 |   ##   | (White text)
  --------

Okay, this sidequest may seem complex but stay with me and you will see that
it is extremely simple.

The bottom right box is information concerning the next door you need to
open.  There are 16 doors in all inside this cave.  Each one can only be
opened in an exact order given to you at each door.  So the []>> # refers to
the next door you need to go open.  In this case it is the first door.  So
let's assume the number says 3.  So on the screen it would say in yellow text
in the bottom right box []>> 3.  This tells us we need to go and find door
number 3 somwhere in the cave.  The ## in white text is the first part of the
code to open door 3 (or whatever door number you actually have).

Here is a map of the entire cave:

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX     

Now, to keep track of all the codes I used a numbered list on a sheet of
paper.  I HIGHLY recommend you do the same thing.  You will need to keep
track of all the numbers.

Like this:

1.                              9.
2.                             10.
3.                             11.
4.                             12.
5.                             13.
6.                             14.
7.                             15.
8.                             16.

When you start the quest, quickly write down the first code in the appopriate
door number slot.  This is what my sheet looked like using the example we
have been using.

1.                              9.
2.                             10.
3. 5 +                         11.
4.                             12.
5.                             13.
6.                             14.
7.                             15.
8.                             16.

My first code was 5 for door 3.  This means that when I entered the dungeon
my bottom right screen looked like this:

  --------
 | []>> 3 | (Yellow text)
 |        | 
 |    5   | (White text)
  --------

So I wrote it down.

Now, press a button to make the boxes go away and allow you to get control
back.  You will notice 2 treasure chest in front of you.  These treasure
chest will do 1 of 3 things.

1. Give you a helpful hint.
2. Automatically open the next door for you.
3. Nothing (the chest is empty).

You only get to open one and after you open it they will both disappear.
Don't worry about the chest that much.  If you get lucky and it opens the
next door for you, then good, you get to skip a door.  Otherwise they are
useless.

*Note:  If opening a chest opens the next door for you, the two boxes with
        the codes on them will pop up on the screen.  Make sure you write
        down the information it gives you on your sheet for later.

Now, go ahead and open one of the treasure chests (it doesn't matter which
one because the first set of chest does the same thing regardless).  When
you open the chest you will get a tutorial.  You will get the chance for the
game to show and open the first door for you if you want to.  If you do this
however, make sure you write the codes down on paper anyway because you may
need them later.

So use the map to find the door you need to go to.  Once you have found the
door press "X" when you are next to it and you will get a new set of boxes
on the screen.  You can also just follow the red arrow on the mini-map to
find the next door.

The bottom box is the same with new information concerning the next door,
however the top left box is different.  Instead of "No Data" it now has some
information in it.

Here is the new top left box:

  --------
 | #>> [] | (Yellow text)
 |        | 
 |   ##   | (White text)
  --------

You will notice the yellow box and the #>> are reversed now.  This tells you
that this is the second part of the code for door 3 (or whatever door number
you actually have).

There is also a new box in the center:

  -----------------------------------------------
 |                  Code Entry                   |
 |                   0000000                     |          
 | If there aren't enough digits, input all 9's. |
 |             X Enter     [] Cancel             |
  -----------------------------------------------

This box is simply where you will enter your code.  Use the left/right
arrows on your controller to move the cursor to the different numbers.
Use the up/down arrows to increase/decrease the number.

Now, don't let the text "If there aren't enough digits, input all 9's."
throw you off.  This just means if you get a code that is higher than
9999999 then just enter 9999999 since you can't enter anything higher.

For me, the second part of the code (the white number in the top left box)
was 6.  So here is my sheet now.

1.                              9.
2.                             10.
3. 5 + 6 = 11                  11.
4.                             12.
5.                             13.
6.                             14.
7.                             15.
8.                             16.

You can see that I took the two codes I had (5 and 6) and added them together.
This gives me the number 11, the code for door number 3.  So now I simply
need to enter 0000011 in the code input box and press "X".

The door should open if you wrote down the correct two codes and added them
correctly.

Now, after the door opens you will get two new treasure chests.  They will
randomly do one of the three things I talked about earlier.  Now, if you skip
the treasure chests and then go and unlock the next door, then these two will
disappear and two new ones will appear at the next door you opened.

Okay, so that's the basic gist of the sidequest.  It's just basic math.

Now there are a few other things.  You can press the "Square" button on your
controller at anytime to pull up the last information you received.  You can
only do this 3 times per door.  After that it won't work until the next door.
I never used this function because I wrote everything down.

Now sometimes instead of a simple code being given to you like 6.  You will
see something like:

Door 10's code
or
Amount of gil earned since door 3
or
Number of battles fought since entering the cave
or
6879 + door 5's code

This is why you need to write all the codes down.  Now, if you equipped the
Charm Bangle like I said to then the amount of gil question will always be 0.
So if you see something like "10 + amount of gil received" the part of that
code will be "10".  The same applies to the number of battles fought question.

Lastly, on the map you will see "B3".  This is a button you can press to pull
up the Code Compendium.  If at any point you forget to write something down
or wrote down the wrong code, you can check this as many times as you like
to get a list of all the codes you have received so far.

*Note: This only lists full codes, not parts of the codes, so if you forget
       a part of the code, you will have to use the "Square" button.

Now, after you reach the last door the bottom right box will say:

  ------------ 
 |  It ends.  |
 | Well done. |
  ------------ 

This is because there is not a next door.

After you complete the puzzle the first time, exit the cave and go save the
game.  Now return to the cave and do the entire puzzle AGAIN!  That's right,
all over again.

After you complete the puzzle the second time, a chest will appear (T8 on my
map) in the first corridor containing the Force of Nature accessory.  This
accessory absorbs all elemental damage and adds elemental damage to your
weapon.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[961] -- Via Infinito --------------------------------------------------------

To reach Via Infinito you must be in chapter 5.  In chapter 5, go to Bevelle
via the airship and go to the temple (the area with the lift up to the
balcony) in Bevelle and head inside.  Upon entering, take an immediate right
to the next screen and you will get a scene with the Kinderguardians.  Save
the game and then jump onto the teleport pad.

This secret dungeon is called Via Infinito.  It is sort of like the monster
arena in Final Fantasy X in that it contains monsters far more difficult than
the end boss of the game.  The deeper you go into the dungeon, the more
difficult the fiends become.  This dungeon has 100 levels.

Move forward and you will get a brief scene.  Grab the Crimson Sphere 6 from
off the ground and choose not to watch it right now.  Follow the path ahead
and find a hole in the ground.  Jump down into it.

This dungeon has standard floor layouts that you will see over and over and
over again.  They are randomly placed so I can't walk you through each level.

However they are not difficult to get through navigationaly wise.  Just
difficult to survive in.

The object is to try and get to the far end of the path and find a pit that
you can jump down into.  Jumping into the pit will take you to the next level.

Another important thing to note about this dungeon is that using a Charm
Bangle will do NOTHING.  So you cannot eliminate the random encounters.

Along the way you will see Tonberry's walking around.  Most of the time you
can simply ignore them and go around them.  However some of the levels
require you to fight them in order to advance through the level.  You will 
know when you need to fight one when you can't go ahead any farther.  Sometimes
fighting the Tonberry will offer up a shortcut to the end of the level as well.

It's up to you whether you want to fight them or not.  During the first 20
levels they are quite easy.

Now, one final thing to look out for is traps along the way.  The only thing
you might come across in the first 20 levels is a large Elder Drake on the
screen jumping out from an alcove.  Avoid this fiend at all costs.  If you
get into a fight with this fiend you cannot escape from it and YOU WILL DIE!.
You are not strong enough to tackle this monster.  Avoid it like the plague.

There are also teleport pads on every level.  These simply take you back to
the entrance allowing you to essentially quit the dungeon and save/heal.
You can then re-enter the dungeon at the point you left off at.

At 20 level increments you will fight a boss.

Okay, so make your way along the dungeon levels and at level 20 you will get
a scene with Kinoc and then you will have to fight a boss battle.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Aranea
  HP: 18280
  MP: 178
Weak: None
 EXP: 4000

Normal Steal: Turbo Ether x1
  Rare Steal: Kinesis Badge x1
 Normal Drop: Stamina Tonic x1
   Rare Drop: Mythril Bangle x1
 Dropped Gil: 800
Pilfered Gil: 2200

Strategy:
        This battle isn't too difficult.  He's similar to Boris that you
fought early on in the game, however with higher HP.  Just attack and heal
and he will go down easy enough.

--

After the battle, grab the Crimson Sphere 8 on the ground and choose not to
watch it for now.  Find the nearest teleport pad and teleport out of the
dungeon.  Save the game at the save sphere and return to the Celsius and watch
the two Crimson Sphere's (6 & 8) that you got in the dungeon (for % completion
points).

Now return to the dungeon and pick up where you left off on level 20.

At level 40 you will encounter a boss.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Black Elemental
  HP: 9999
  MP: 2380
 EXP: 770

Normal Steal: Ether
  Rare Steal: Rune Bracer
 Normal Drop: Mana Tonic
   Rare Drop: Tetra Gloves
 Dropped Gil: 380
Pilfered Gil: 500

Strategy:
        There are several ways to defeat this enemy.  Black Elemental will
cast Ultima that can do 9999 damage to all of your party.  So to survive
in a fight, you will have to have over 9999 HP on your character.  You 
can't reflect Ultima.  Your other alternative is to do 9999 damage against
Black Elemental before it can cast Ultima.

There are also several "cheap" ways to defeat it:

 - Berserker
      Eject
 - Dark Knight
      with 5000+ MAX HP + Charon = 9999 damage
 - Lady Luck
      Bribe with 60,000 gil
      Get 777 using Random Reels
 - Samurai
      Spare Change
      Zantetsu
 - Thief
      Steal Will
 - Trainer
      Carrier Flurry (Paine)
      Kogoro Strike (Yuna)
 - Drain all of its MP using 3 Soul Springs


--

At level 60 you will encounter a boss.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Concherer
  HP: 343280
  MP: 170
 EXP: 6000

Normal Steal: Ether
  Rare Steal: Ether x2
 Normal Drop: Blessed Gem
   Rare Drop: Crystal Gloves
 Dropped Gil: 1200
Pilfered Gil: 2400

Strategy:
        This battle is very easy.  Concherer does insane amounts of damage,
however, all his attacks only damage one character.  So it is easy to stay
alive.  This battle could take a long time to finish since he has high
defense.

I used a Berserker, Samurai, and an Alchemist for this battle. Equip a
Champion Belt (STR+40, DEF+40) and Kaiser Knuckles (STR+50) on the Berserker.
Equip Hyper Wrist (STR+30) and Catnip on the Samurai.

Use the Alchemist to revive the other characters.  If she dies, have another
character use a phoenix down on her.

Simply attack for a long time and revive when needed and you will defeat him.


--

At level 80 you will encounter a boss.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Chac
  HP: 437850
  MP: 820
 EXP: 2200

Normal Steal: Ether
  Rare Steal: Ether x2
 Normal Drop: Shining Gem
   Rare Drop: Pixie Dust
 Dropped Gil: 750
Pilfered Gil: 1000

Strategy:
        Coming Soon...

--

At level 100 you will encounter two bosses in a row with no chance of
recovering or saving between them.

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Paragon
  HP: 200000
  MP: 9999
 EXP: 9000

Normal Steal: Supreme Gem
  Rare Steal: Supreme Gem
 Normal Drop: Supreme Gem
   Rare Drop: Dark Matter
 Dropped Gil: 3000
Pilfered Gil: 5000

Strategy:
        Coming Soon...

--

-- Boss Battle --
Name: Trema
  HP: 999999
  MP: 999
 EXP: 10000

Normal Steal: Ether
  Rare Steal: Turbo Ether
 Normal Drop: Dark Matter
   Rare Drop: Dark Matter x2
 Dropped Gil: 10000
Pilfered Gil: 5000

Strategy:
        Coming Soon...

--

For defeating Trema and completing the Via Infinito dungeon, you will receive
the Iron Duke accessory.  This is the best accessory in the game.

Iron Duke:
 - Max HP +100
 - Max MP +100
 - STR +100
 - DEF +100
 - MAG +100
 - MDEF +100
 - Speed +100
 - Accuracy +100

[970] XVIII. Mini-Games
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
This section covers all the mini-games contained within Final Fantasy X-2.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[971] -- Sphere Break --------------------------------------------------------

Sphere Break is a mathmatical game of numbers.  There are 16 coins on a game
board.  The four in the middle are gold colored and are called "Entry Coins".
They are called that because in order to initiate a turn you must select an
Entry Coin.  So every turn will always have at least 1 Entry Coin used in it.
The entry coins are not randomly placed.  They are always the same and are
dependant on what coins you currently have.  Later on in the game you can
shuffle around which Entry Coins you want to use in a game.  To start the
game you will probably have the 4 I have listed below (3, 5, 2, 6).

The remaining 12 coins are randomly generated out of numbers from 1-9 and are
called "Border Coins".  When you use them to create a sphere break, they will
disappear.  Don't worry, the come back eventually.  You just have to be
careful not to use too many during every turn.  You can usually get away with
using 1 Entry Coin and between 1 and 2 Border Coins to achieve a sphere break.

Here is a diagram of the game board:

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

I have labeled each section with a letter (A-E) in the bottom left or bottom
right corners.  I will use these below to describe each section of the game
board.

-------------
- Section A -
-------------
This section contains information on your opponents core sphere.  Depending
on your opponents core sphere, these numbers will change.  Some will be much
harder, some easier.  Play people with easy core spheres like the one I am
using in the example to start off with.  Once you get better at the game
you can try harder ones.

Here are the parts of this section:

Turn  - This tells you how many turns you have used and how many total turns
        you get to try and win.  If the turns reaches the max number (15 in
        this case) before you have reached the quota, you will lose.

Time  - This tells you how much time you have each turn to move.  So in this
        case you have 60 seconds each turn to complete your turn.  If this
        reaches 0 before you complete your turn, you lose.

Quota - This shows you how many points you must get before your turns run out.
        As soon as you go over the quota, the game will end and you will win.
        If you don't hit the quota before your turns are over, you lose.  I
        will talk a little later on how to score points.

-------------
- Section B -
-------------
This section will be empty until you have taken a turn.  After you take a turn
this section records what you did and your echo bonus.

Here are the parts of this section:

Coin Count - This count records the number of coins you used (entry and border)
             in your last turn to make a sphere break.
      
Echo - This records how many times IN A ROW you have used the same number of
       coins (entry and border combined) to make a sphere break.  Each time
       you use the same number of coins to achieve a sphere break as the last
       turn, this number will go up by 1.

-------------
- Section C -
-------------
This section just shows you stats on the coin you are selecting.

Here are the parts of this section:

Entry/Border Coin - This will say either Entry Coin or Border Coin depending
                    on what coin you are selecting.

No. - Just the number on the coin you are selecting.

Value - The value of the coin.

Stock - The number of coins you have of this type.

Trait - This will fluctuate depending in the coin.  Sometimes you will just
        see a line denoting that this coin doesn't have any special traits
        to it.  You could see things like +/- 5 gil saying if you use this
        coin you will immediately get 5 gil or lose 5 gil depending on
        whether it show a + or -.  It could also say Item.  This means if
        you use this coin you will get an item for it.  Most of the time the
        item is a Hi-Potion or something like that but sometimes you can get
        good things like a Garment Grid.  There are other traits as well but
        I'll leave those for you to figure out.

-------------
- Section D -
-------------
This section shows you information on where you are currently with your turn.

Here are the parts of this section:

Sum - This displays the current count you have accumulated by selecting the 
      various coins.

Break Multiples - This shows you the core number, as well as the next to
                  multiples of it.  In this case the core sphere number is 5
                  and 10, 15 are the next to multiples of it.  If you combine
                  coins to hit any of the 3 numbers you will achieve a sphere
                  break.

The text "Choose an entry coin" will change to "Choose another coin" after you
have selected your first Entry Coin.

-------------
- Section E -
-------------
This is the actual game board that houses the 16 coins and the core sphere
number.  The four "bolded" coins in my diagram are the "Entry Coins".  The
other 12 are the "Border Coins".  The number in the center "(5)" is the core
sphere number.


Now let's talk a little about point scoring.

In order to score points in sphere break, you must achieve a sphere break
using "BORDER" coins.  If you create a sphere break using only "Entry" coins
you will get 0 points that round.

For every "Border" coin you use in a sphere break you will get 1 point.  So
if you use 1 entry coin and 2 border coins to achieve a sphere break that turn
you will get 2 points that turn.

Simple right?  Well, there are some advanced tactics as well.  Let's go over
them now.

So what's this coin count and echo garbage?  Well, it very simple.  The coin
count just keeps track of how many total coins you used last turn to achieve
the sphere break.  Keeping with our example we'll say we used 1 entry coin and
2 border coins to achieve the last sphere break giving us 2 points so far.  So
our quota say 2/20.  The "Coin Count" will now display 3.  Now during our next
turn we will use 3 "Entry Coins" to achieve the next sphere break.  Well the
quota will still say 2/20 because we didn't use any "Border" coins this time
so we didn't get any points.

Why would you do that you ask.  Well, because in most cases it is better to
forfeit a point or two to maintain the echo bonus.  You see I just increased
my "Echo" bonus to x1.  This means that every point I get the next round will
be multiplied by 1.  In this case that's not a bonus since any number times 1
is still the same number.  But let's say the next round I use 1 "Entry" coin
and 2 "Border" coins to achieve the next sphere break.  Well, my coin count
stays at 3 because I used 3 coins to achieve the sphere break.  My "Echo" goes
up to x2.  So I would normally get only 2 points for my last turn because I 
used 2 "Border" coins to achieve the sphere break.  However this time I have
an echo of x2 so 2pts x 2 echo bonus = 4 pts.  So my quota is now 6/20 in just
3 turns.  So sacrificing points to keep your echo bonus is well worth it.

Just think of how many points I will have if I continue my echo bonus for a
few more rounds!

Here's a chart where I use 1 entry coin and 2 border coins each round:

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------
| Turn #    Echo Bonus          Points/Turn              Total Points |
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------|
| 1          x0                 2                        2            | 
| 2          x1                 2                        4            |
| 3          x2                 4                        8            |
| 4          x3                 6                        14           |
| 5          x4                 8                        22           |
| 6          x5                 10                       32           |
| 7          x6                 12                       44           |
| 8          x7                 14                       58           |
| 9          x8                 16                       74           |
| 10         x9                 18                       92           |
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

So you can see that using the echo bonus will increase your points
dramtically.  With 92 pts after only 10 turns, you should be able to beat even
the best sphere break players!

There are many combinations for you to use.  Just starting out you could try
getting a streak going with just using 1 "Entry" coin and 1 "Border" and
trying to maintain the coin count of 2.  You will get less points but enough
to beat most of the weaker players for practice.  Just don't forget that you
don't have to just try and get the core number but multiples of it as well.
I rarely achieve a sphere break hitting the core number.  I almost always
hit it at the 2nd or 3rd multiple level.

Well, that's it for sphere break.  I hope this helped and you have a better
understanding of it now!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[978] -- Gunner's Gauntlet ---------------------------------------------------

This mini-game is initiated by going to Besaid at chapter 2.

When you get to Besaid you will encounter a Youth League member named Beclam
who is training the Besaid Aurochs to be Youth League members.  Choose "You're
on, Beclam" to initiate a new mission.  This is basically a mini-game.

The objective is to score more than 500 points and make it along the path to
the beach were Beclam awaits within the time limit.  A guage at the bottom of
the screen will begin to rise as you kill fiends without getting hit.  If you
get hit, the gauge resets.  As the gauge fills, the point value of killing a
fiend gets higher.  

This game depends solely on not getting hit!!  If you get it is very difficult
to get to 500 points before the time limit runs out.  Not impossible, but
difficult.  So just don't get hit.

Controls on the game coming soon.

Now my strategy is simply this:

Go along the path and kill all the enemies on the first screen using the
regular ammo.  Press the "O" button to get the enemies in your sights even if
they are not yet in screen.  After they are gone, head to the next screen
towards where the large red ruins are.  Kill everything using regular ammo
until you get to the first bridge.  By this time you should have at least 1
Death ammo and maybe some dual ammo.  Use the regular and dual ammo on the 
brown lupine and the grey/red lupine.  Use the 1 Death ammo on the large 
flying fiend.  This is important so that you don't run out of ammo.  After
killing them run up and grab the treasure chests when you see a break to get
more ammo.  The back up to before the bridge again and repeat this process
until you have either 500 points or onlt 1 minute remaining and then make a 
break for the beach.  Try and save 1 Death ammo.  When you finally reach the
next screen, take out the large Golem with 1 Death ammo and head to the beach
and speak with Beclam.

You will get the Enigma Plate Garment Grid as well as the satisfaction of
stuffing your high score in Beclam's face.

You can choose to play this game again but the points are up to 750 now
instead of 500.

[995] XIX. Glitches
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Mascot Dressphere

  If Zanarkand Ruins is the last place you obtain the Episode Complete! in,
  the game glitches and you will not receive the Mascot Dressphere.  So make
  sure you visit Zanarkand Ruins and obtain the Episode Complete! there first
  during chapter 5.


Kilika Woods Entrance

  At the entrance to Kilika Woods in chapter 5.  If you enter the woods and
  then from just inside the woods where the save sphere is, head back toward
  Kilika Village hugging either the left or right side of the path, Yuna will
  walk off the screen to the left or right of the bridge railing instead of
  onto the bridge itself.  To the right or left of the bridge is water so in
  essence Yuna is walking into the water.  Not much of a glitch, just an
  interesting thing I noticed.


Episode Complete!

  There are two glitches in my opinion as far as Episode Complete! goes in
  this game.  The first one is if Zanarkand Ruins is the last place you
  receive an Episode Complete! in during chapter 5, you will not get the
  Mascot Dressphere.  The second one is that you will receive multiple
  Episode Complete! screens in certain locations during chapter 5.  Macalania
  Woods is one location that does this.  While not really a glitch, it is
  still annoying and I see no reason why the programmers couldn't determine
  what consitutes an Episode Complete!.
