A SPECIAL NOTICE!!

To all persons who use my FAQ:

Thank you for using my FAQ, first and foremost. Keep in mind I am
trying my best to address all problems with my guide. If you have
a problem, please check later versions of the FAQ (such as this one)
and under the section your having problems with. I may have fixed it
recently. Keep in mind 100% is extremely elusive, and I can not track
everything you do. By missing a scene you put yourself at irreversible
risk and damage to 100% completion.

If you have sent me an e-mail and I have not responded I am sorry. Due
to school and work I have very little time to answer e-mails, let alone
as many as a Final Fantasy FAQ draws. Please be as patient as possible.



This FAQ was created with the purpose of shedding further light on the 
subject of obtaining one hundred percent within one game. A FAQ of this 
kind DOES already exist, however due to certain aspects that will 
remain undisclosed, I have create this "Optimal" guide. By creating 
this guide my sole purpose is to inform, not to "out-do" others and 
their works.

**NOTE**
This FAQ MAY REVEAL major plot swings. Keep in mind SOME THINGS NEED to 
be described, and they will not be marked with a Spoiler warning. They 
will not ruin your game (most likely) so proceed at your own risk.

 -------- UPDATE INFORMATION --------
======================================

DECEMBER 15, 2003
Version 1.0
Don't know why, but I feel like writing another FAQ. Just starting it, 
so things may need some revising and such. Any and ALL suggestions are 
welcome! My e-mail is at the very beginning of this FAQ. UPDATE: Just 
finished Version 1.0 at 3:13 PM EST 12/16/2003! Look for more 
descriptive entries for different percentages in the future!

DECEMBER 20, 2003
Version 2.0
Thanks to some help, I've fixed some formatting issues and some things
which make the FAQ more appealing. I included SOME stuff, such as
changing some things which might've been misleading, and in Version
3.0 I plan on adding things like more support for guide content (aka
"beefing up" the guide ;p).

DECEMBER 28, 2003
Version 3.0
Fixed some errors in the FAQ. Well, not errors or course, but just
misleading things. Remember that "content update" I was talking about?
Well, chances are I won't get to it as soon as I'd hoped. No worries
though! If you have ANY trouble at all just drop me an e-mail and
I'll try and help you. Keep in mind SOMETIMES I don't check my
e-mail as often as I should, so give me atleast a day to respond.
Thanks!

JANUARY 08, 2004
Version 4.0
Fixed more errors (they weren't ones that would ruin your game if you
have been using a previous version, just some minor misleading things).

APRIL 12, 2005
Version 5.0
Updated Email because old e-mail was deleting many requests. Sincerest
apologies to any unanswered emails during that time.

=====================================
   -------- THINGS TO NOTE --------
=====================================

This FAQ was created, in some sorts, using many sources. Mainly the 
Brady Games guide was the source I used to achieve 100% in one game, so 
that is what this FAQ most closely resembles. Unlike the Brady guide, 
however, my FAQ is a bit more descriptive. I in no way shape or form 
copied any guide, Japanese or English, or any FAQ on www.gamefaqs.com, 
during the making of this FAQ.

Enough of that, though. On to real things to note! First and foremost, 
here's a rundown of this FAQs' goals.
 
-Help people achieve 100% in one (or two ^^) game(s).

Well, that's it ^_^

Really, though, be SURE THAT YOU DO NOT DO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING!!!

-DO NOT SKIP ANY CUTSCENES. This means pressing "Pause" then the "Skip 
Scene button" to skip a cut-scene/story development. In short: WATCH 
EVERYTHING! Even if you die and have to load again, WATCH IT ALL THE 
WAY THROUGH!

-Secondly, you CAN skip dialogue (as in pressing "X" to speed it 
along), except on one occasion. This occasion occurs in Chapter 1 at 
Mushroom Rock Road/Youth League HQ in a conversation with Maechen. DO 
NOT press ANYTHING during this conversation. More on this part, 
however, is revealed in the FAQ.

=====================================
     -------- THE GUIDE --------
=====================================

OK, back to the good stuff. The following is a rundown, Chapter-by-
Chapter, Level-By-Level, and Scene-By-Scene, of what to do. 
 
**NOTE** 
I HIGHLY suggest having more than one save game. If you at ANY TIME 
have a different percentage than what is listed at the "TOTAL 
PERCENTAGE", then find out what you did wrong (drop me an e-mail) and 
load your previous save back up. THIS IS IMPERATIVE!

=====================================
     -------- CHAPTER ONE --------
=====================================

LUCA - Total Percentage Gain: 1.6%

**After the opening cut-scene, move down the docks to the second dock 
on the left. There is a Moogle behind a stack of crates on the right.

the balloon stand, then talk to everyone in the area (including two
people hidden behind a sliding window in the Northwest).

CRIMSON REPORT ONE.

**After you obtain the Crimson Report, speak to Maroda, who enters the 
Den.

**Travel through Mushroom Rock Road to the lift at 
the end of the area. Speak to Elma, although I believe this is an 
automatic event. Mission Complete!

**Speak to Lucil TWICE at the entrance to the Youth League HQ building.

HIS OFFER TO SHAKE HIS HAND! BUT DO NOT PRESS ANYTHING BEFORE THIS! 
*gasp*

suggest running behind it. You must NOT LOSE ANY CARGO/PACKAGES during 
this mission!! When back at the Moonflow bank, Tobli will congratulate 
you with some VERY useful things, including the Gun Mage Dressphere!
Mission Complete!

TOTAL PERCENTAGE: 14.6%

her feelings about entering the Farplane, etc.

TOTAL PERCENTAGE: 15.2%
----------------------------------------------------------------------

MACALANIA WOODS - Total Percentage Gain: 2.2%

**Speak to Bayra in the southern part of Macalania Woods. *Automatic 
Event. Just walk far enough in to the woods to reach him.

**Speak to Donga. Head east from Bayra, then east again past two 
guards. Head south at the intersection and speak to Donga.

**Speak to Pukutak. Head a good ways in to the woods to encounter 
Pukutak. She's standing right in the middle of the path, and it takes a 
good while to reach her, so be patient and don't panic.

**Keep heading along the path after encountering Pukutak to reach a 
four-way divide. Take the Northeastern path to reach the second
spring. Speak to Tromell FOUR TIMES. He is at the northern part 
of this second spring.

**After speaking to Tromell FOUR TIMES, head in to 
the north path at the four-way divide. This will take you outside, and 
you will witness a scene with O'aka. He will take off (speak with him 
before he runs away?) and you will have to give chase. To make this 
quick, simply run through the Southeastern path at the four-way divide 
and down the "magic walkway". Once you get to the Save Sphere, act like 
your going to where Donga was (at the first spring), but instead head 
North at the intersection this time. Head up in this small area to 
witness O'aka hiding up in a tree. When prompted, ALLOW O'aka to board 
the Celsius. Mission Complete!

**Board the Celsius and speak to O'aka at the "Cabin".

**ONGOING PERCENTAGE NOTICE!!**
Before visiting Macalania Woods again in Chapter Three, MAKE SURE 
you have O'aka's debt paid off. To easily obtain this, see Chapter 2's

dialogue by pressing "X" is OK).

TOTAL PERCENTAGE: 18.8%
----------------------------------------------------------------------

CALM LANDS - Total Percentage Gain: 0.2%

**Just as before, view the scene that appears when you first enter the 
Calm Lands.

**Begin to Advertise for a company. To do this, simply speak to one of 
the two people at any "game stand" and choose 'Publicity'. Start 
publicizing for either company as soon as possible. View the PR FAQ at

MOUNT GAGAZET - Total Percentage Gain: 0.4%

BESAID ISLAND - Total Percentage Gain: 0.8%

**Speak to Beclem near the Save Sphere outside Besaid 
Village and successfully beat his personal best score in the "Gunner's 
Gauntlet". Mission Complete! Please note that SOME people say you must
merely ATTEMPT the challenge. If you are seriously having so much
trouble that you CAN NOT complete this, then be aware that the above
MAY BE true. Try it, and verify your percentage is at an even 30.0. If
it isn't, then the method did NOT work and you should re-load your
previous Save Game.


**NOTE**
Don't have 30%? Don't worry. If you haven't paid off O'aka then you
aren't going to! Simply continue with the guide and you should be even
once you reach 34% at the Thunder Plains!

wouldn't skip that either).

TOTAL COMPLETION: 31.0%
----------------------------------------------------------------------

MI'IHEN HIGHROAD - Total Percentage Gain: 1.4%

**Fairly lengthy mission, so again, refer to a 
separate FAQ. Maybe one day I'll add full support for this section, but 
for now know that you need to simply catch a Chocobo and then rescue 
Calli BEFORE TIME RUNS OUT! In addition to that, make sure that you 
witness the scene where Rikku falls down from the top of the Ruins. 
This is for a scene later in the game. Mission Complete! 

**NOTE**
Don't freak out if you can't get Rikku to fall from the Ruins. It is
still possible to obtain 100% without doing this. This just makes it
easier. 

Here's a more detailed explanation from Mr Person:

"By default, 90% of people will see this event. It -is- in the 
chocobo catching mission. The only advice is - don't catch the 
Chocobo during the "press left-middle-right to block the chocobo" 
Rikku will automatically climb and fall if you do get past that point."

**After the mission, speak to Clasko and Calli near the Travel Agency 
(a little bit North). ACCEPT and ALLOW them BOTH to board the Celsius.

TOTAL PERCENTAGE: 32.4%
----------------------------------------------------------------------

MUSHROOM ROCK ROAD - Total Percentage Gain: 1.0%

**Enter the Mushroom Rock Road and head down in to the valley, toward 
the Den of Woe, just as you did in Chapter One. This time, however, 
Nooj is waiting in the Den. Speak to him.

**After you witness the events, head all the way North to Youth League 
HQ and speak to Elma and Lucil.

**Board the Celsius and speak to Shinra to view the sphere "CRIMSON 
REPORT SEVEN".

TOTAL PERCENTAGE: 33.4%
----------------------------------------------------------------------

MOONFLOW - Total Percentage Gain: 0.2%

**Sell all Ten Tickets to Tobli. Just use the 
following information:

2. Woman standing next to a child, just West of Tobli. Ask 1000 Gil.
3. Woman standing across from the Save Sphere in yellow/orange. Ask 
1500 Gil.
4. Man sitting on bench next to Save Sphere. Ask 1000 Gil.
5. Person sitting on Moonflow Dock No. 1, at the bottom of the steps on 
the right. Ask 1500 Gil.
6. Person standing to the left at the bottom of the steps in the same 
area. Ask ANY AMOUNT!
7. Moonflow Dock No. 2 (ride Shoopuff at Dock 1). Child at bottom of 
steps, on the left. Ask 2000 Gil.
8. Same area. Person at the top of the steps on the right. Ask 2000 
Gil.
9. Move to the next screen. Speak to the guard on the right. Ask 500 
Gil.
10. Woman in green in the same area, standing to the left. Ask ANY 
AMOUNT!

Return to Tobli/Automatic Events.

GUADOSALAM - Total Percentage Gain: 0.2%

**Approach the "LeBlanc chateau" (the big building to the North) to 
strike up a scene with some Syndicate guards.

**NOTICE!! O'aka's debt!!**

Still haven't paid off O'aka's debt? No problem! Save your game (I mean 
it...SAVE!!) and head to the Inn (right of Save Sphere). Talk to the 
Innkeeper and take him up on his "special offer". It costs 10,000 Gil, 
but wait until he says "It is the last person you would expect..." If 
you do NOT see this, then RESET and try again. Once you get this (it 
may take several tries), press "Square" while in front of the Innkeeper 
to sell the poor sap the item for a whopping 100,000 Gil! After this 
net 90,000 Gil gain, you should easily be able to pay off O'aka's debt 
(especially if you just did the Moonflow mission!). If you want, return 
there now and pay it off. Then take the time to buy items from O'aka 
and sell them to the Barkeep for some nice Gil! If you don't pay him 
off now, REMEMBER TO DO SO BEFORE CHAPTER 3 MACALANIA WOODS!

TOTAL PERCENTAGE: 33.8%
----------------------------------------------------------------------

THUNDER PLAINS - Total Percentage Gain: 0.2%

**Speak to Cid. In the southern portion of the Thunder Plains, marked

percentage.

TOTAL PERCENTAGE: 34.0%
----------------------------------------------------------------------

MACALANIA WOODS - Total Percentage Gain: 1.4%

**When you enter the Woods, head back to where you 
spoke to Tromell (in the second spring area) and meet Bayra. He tells 
you that you must find the other musicians in small circles of floating

the Southeastern path at the four-way divide. Donga will be at the 
intersection on the magical walkway. After discovering him, continue 
down the path to the beginning of the area. When you reach the Save 
Sphere, head right until you get to the four-way intersection and head 
south. The circle here will reveal Pukutak. Mission Complete! 

TOTAL PERCENTAGE: 35.4%

CALM LANDS - Total Percentage Gain: 0.8%

the Calm Lands. *Automatic Event if Clasko is on Celsius

the Chocobo Ranch. Complete the mission by touching the enemies that 
are facing different directions than the other enemies. Mission 
Complete! 

**After the previous mission, head back out to the Calm Lands with some 
Gyshal Greens (get them from Clasko). Run around until you get in to a 
battle with a Chocobo. Use the "Item" command and select "Gyshal Green" 
and then select the Chocobo. Use Attack on the ENEMIES ONLY with your 
other characters. When they are defeated, you may need to give the 
Chocobo another Green to capture it. You only need to capture ONE 
Chocobo BEFORE the end of Chapter 3.

**Head to the Travel Agency in the middle of the Calm Lands. In the 
western portion of the Travel Agency you will find Lian and Ayde. Speak 
with them to gain this percentage.

Do this, then enter the upper overhang to the North. View this extended

SHINRA! Not only will you gain Percent, but you'll also get a very 
useful dressphere. For tips on beating Shinra search the

**NOTE**
Be sure to keep a Save Game before this area. If you want, you can go

an automatic cutscene will play. You will have an opportunity, however
to back out of the fight and return at a later time. If you still need

BEVELLE - Total Percentage Gain: 1.8%

**Episode Complete!

**Inside Via Infinito (found by going in to the right corridor of the 
Bevelle Temple) obtain CRIMSON REPORT SIX at Cloister 0 (the 
beginning). Afterwards, battle your way to Cloister 20 (it's easy for 
now) and obtain CRIMSON REPORT EIGHT.

**Board the Celsius and view both CRIMSON REPORT SIX and CRIMSON REPORT 
EIGHT.

**Defeat Trema in the last Cloister. This is INCREDIBLY difficult. 
Follow this general strategy and pray:

-Equip Yuna with a mastered Gunner dressphere. Equip her with Cat Nip 
(which you obtain from Black Elemental on Cloister 40) and Speed 
Bracer.

-Equip Rikku/Paine with Dark Knights Dresspheres. Use Crystal Bangles 
and items that raise their Defense.

-Have Yuna be in Yellow Health (which can be obtained by 
equipping/dequipping Wrings/Bloodlusts) and go to the last cloister.

-Two strategies for Garment Grids. One is equip one that raises Defense,
and another is equip the Garment Grid which allows for Max HP Limit
Break. If you choose the Max HP Limit Break, then use a Stamina Tonic
in the following battles to DOUBLE your HP! If used with a Crystal
Bangle and high level Dark Knights, this will sky rocket your HP!

-Equip your Gunner with the Garment Grid which allows for First Strike.

-At the start of the battle with Paragorn, use Trigger Happy. If you 
are in yellow health, and with the Cat Nip equipped, you will do 
massive damage. Maybe enough to kill him in one turn!

-Have Dark Knights focus on using X-Potions and Yuna focus on doing 
Trigger Happy while she's alive.

-Once he goes down, you will face Trema! Use the same strategy, but use 
Mega Phoenixes, because your party will probably go down fast. With any 
luck your Dark Knights will survive Meteor and be able to revive and 
heal with X-Potions before he casts it again. Keep using Trigger Happy 
and remember NOT to heal Yuna above yellow health, and good luck!!

TOTAL PERCENTAGE: 92.0%

CALM LANDS - Total Percentage Gain: 0.4%

**Raise the Publicity Level of either company to Level 5 (400 points) 
BEFORE you enter the Calm Lands in Chapter 5!!

**Do the Chocobo Ranch sidequest. This takes a very long time. In 
short:

-It is also advisable to just go ahead and catch 14 Chocobos. That is 
because the more Chocobos you have the higher probability a Choco 
Runner will return! If you catch 14 Chocobos, and only have Three or
less Max Level 5 Chocobos, release one and catch another. Continue
until you have FOUR Chocobos which have a Max Level of FIVE.
-Dispatch three Level 1 Choco Runners and make sure they return safely.
-Level them up to Level 2. If you can't, catch more and see if they 
can.
-Dispatch three Level 2 Choco Runners and make sure they return safely.
-Level them up to Level 3. If you can't, catch more and see if they 
can.
-Repeat for Levels 4 through 5.


**When you've done that, the Chocobo Dungeon will open. I have no map 
or anything of this place, and it is very confusing. If you navigate 
around enough you'll be able to locate an AP Egg. After that, try and 
at least ATTEMPT to find the middle of the locked doors to the north. 
This one will open, revealing the Anything Eater. Defeat it, then 
proceed to open the rest of the doors on both sides of the middle door. 
After that is accomplished, you can FINALLY open the main door behind 
all of the other doors. This grants you the "Amazing Chocobo"! Episode 
Complete!

After you defeat the final boss, wait until the scene at the Farplane 
Glen and press "X" to hear a whistle. If your afraid you'll miss it, 
just press "X" throughout the whole ending. It SHOULDN'T skip any 
dialogue, although be warned that it may. For a better description, 
basically just press "X" when Yuna and the Gullwings return to the area 
that Leblanc, Ormi, and Logos were waiting. When the Fayth appears and 
asks Yuna a question, answer "Yes!" (FIRST OPTION!!) You will view the 
Perfect Ending AFTER THE CREDITS HAVE ROLLED. Therefore, DO NOT TURN 
OFF YOUR CONSOLE until they have rolled and you have seen the perfect 
ending, and have had a chance to make a separate "New Game+" file.

PERFECT ENDING ACHIEVED! CONGRATULATIONS!


=====================================
 -------- CONCLUSION/NOTES --------
=====================================

If you did not achieve 100% on your first try, please spare any hate 
mail you may have. This game was not meant to be completed 100% in one 
game. If you DID NOT achieve 100%, simply alter your way of doings 
things. On your second play-through choose New Yevon instead of Youth 
League. Choose not to save the Guado, etc. It should give you the 
Percentage you need to get 100% the second time around.
