<!--StartFragment-->1. In the Prisma Vista
After the cool-looking intro cinema,
you'll get to control Zidane, the main
character of the game. He has a monkey tail, short blonde hair, blue trousers
some funny-looking "gauntlets". He is member of the Tantalus thief gang, and
you're currently on their headquarters. Head
forwards and ignore the candle.
Enter open closet, which has a few goodies on it. On the right side and left
get some nifty items, as well as some amounts of gil. You could also
examine the purple lettering on the right of the closet
opens door to get more
information regarding the Prisma Vista. Once you're ready, light the candle.
You'll see a
real time cinema. The people on the other side of the door will ask
who is. You'll be prompted to select a name. The default
name is Zidane. Yes,
the same one as the soccer player. When you select the name, a masked man(the
mask is green and
has a dragon shape) will enter the room abrubtly, and a battle
a really, really easy boss. He'll attack occasionally, and sometimes
he'l miss. Use the character named Quina to use the
command "steal". Steal
enough times so you get an item called the "Mage Masher", which is rather
important. Have Marcus
and Blank, as well as Zidane to use the attack command on
Baku to cuase some nifty damage. Once you cause enough damage,
the mask will
break revealing a purple haired man.
After the battle, Baku will call the crew for a meeting in the
room adjacent to
this one. There, Baku will explain you the plan. Apparenlty, we need to kidnap
Alexandrias hottes babe,
the heir to the throne, Princess Garnet. All of the
crewmembers will tell you a bit of information. During the conversation,
have to make a choice. Once of them is worth a scream from Baku, and the other
is the correct. The correct one
is the one with the word Garnet on it. Once you
make the correct choice, we are off Prisma Vista.
you leave the Prisma Vista, we'll see another CG where we'll be introduced
to Vivi, a black mage with blue clothes, yellow
pointy hat and an eerie looking
black face with yellow glowing eyes. He is pretty scared about visting
here to see the play "I want to be your canary" like everybody
else. Once you get to control him, head backwards(south)
immediately, to get to
a circular plaza with a statue on it. The statue has some interesting
information you may want
to learn. Check the corners and everywhere until the
field icon pops up and you get your cards. Return to the main street
This time around, head north, and a little mouse will then bump into you.
Another little girl will help you
out. Grab the Potion below the cartel on the
bottom of the screen, near the entrance to the plaza. Enter the open house
and check below the bed and at the top of the ladder to get another Potion as
well as a generous amount of Gil.
Return to the main street and go north once
again. You'll then see three Treno Nobles. They're heading towards the same
you are going to see. When they leave, check the grass to get some cards and
items. You could also check the lettering
here. Enter the bar, and look for the
Flan card which is by a barrel.
Advance forwards then to the screen, which
has as background a portal. There is
a man named Doug here who owns the item shops, and you may enter it and buy
if your 500 gil stash(plus bonus gil you may have gotten by doing
exploration). Then go through the big portal, to get
to a circular plaza, which
is way bigger than the other one. There are also several shops here, including
and the weapons shop, but you can't biy a thing in any one of them.
You could also visit the Inn to get a cinema including
the hippo family and
their reservation problem.
Visit the booth right down the middle, and press X once the field
icon pops up.
Vivi will then talk with the man there, and he'll examine your ticket. Lucky for
you, it is fake, so you're
stuck here. When the poor Vivi starts to cry, he'll
give you some cards to stop you from crying. I guess that's better
You could also visit this guy again to get some information regardin the play
that is currently playing(redundance?).
You could talk with the girls on the far
right corner of the area and play the jump rope. Head towards the alley by them
you'll witness another real time cinema, and afterwards, Puck, the same
mouse that bumped onto you at the very start of
this city will appear. He'll
give you a "slaving" proposal. Decline now, and head forwards. You'll come to a
complex. Enter the houses, and examine them for some nifty items. If you
ring the bell at the bellhouse, you'll get some
extra cards. When you're done,
return to the alleyway, and wait for Puck. This time around, accept. Once you do
wait until a text box shows up. Say that nobody is coming, and move on.
If you wait too long in the alley, alleyway jack will appear. If he gets too
Near you, he'll steal a stash of gil from
your pocket. If your timing is right
And you press X before he mugs you, you'll then learn that is nothing but a
master guru. He'll take you to the bar, where he'll give you a lesson on
How to play this addicting game, the Testra Master.
Follow Puck to the bellhouse, and try
to climb the ladder. A pink creature
called Kupo(a moogle) will fall down from the sky, and talk with you. He'll then
you a tutorial on how to talk with Moogles and what they do. Once he
finishes, another moogle, Siltzkin(something lile
that) will appear and tell
Kupo he's leaving soon. When the conversation ends, Puck will be waiting for you
in the top
of the tower. Talk with Kupo, and save your game. Then select the
Mognet option and you'll get your first delivery.
From now on, each time you find a Moogle,
select the mognet option and they may
Give you a letter for you to deliver. Delivering letters to the moogle is worth
Nothing(unless you're playing the Mognet central sidequest). Normally, the
Moogle tou need to deliver the card to is the
next one you'll find, but some
Times you may need to do a bit of backtracking
the ladder, and you'll end up on the Alexandria rooftops. Follow Puck
instructions, and follow him. Check the rooftops
for some nifty Gil. After
following Puck for a while, he'll ask for your name. Input it and head towards
the end of
the rooftop complex and the play will begin. Witness the play, and
you'll end up on a battle in the middle of it. This
is a really easy battle,
rely on physical attacks, but do not use the SFX option because the SFX spells
cause no damage.
this cinema, continue looking at the play, and once again, you'll have to
do a bit of button pressing. Blank and Zidanw
will do a choreography, and you
msut press the buttons Blank screams. Press them correctly, and you'll impress
and get gil. Press them incorrectly, and you won't impress the
nobles, and therefore, you won't get gil. You can repeat
this as many times as
you want. Once th play is finished, Blank and Zidane will get into the castle.
ITEMS: Phoenix down(x2), Elixir, Phoenix pinion
up the stairs, and don't try to go through the portals next to them, because
the guards will stop you. When you go up the
stairs, you find Garnet. You'll be
given a choice. Either one of them will trigger a cutscene where you'll see
escaping. Zidane and Blank follow her. Afterwards, Zon and Thorn will go
towards the queen's place and inform her about
the situation. Beatrix
intervenes, and queen Brahne sends captain Adelbert Steiner to look for the
Steiner finishes with the kingths of Pluto, backtrack to the queens place
and talk with here to get a silk shirt. Get back
to the hallway and go down the
stairs, and go through the door to Steiner's left. In the next room, go down the
and head forwards towards the exit. Keep heading forwards to reach the
lake. Talk with the knights of Pluto you find, and
head throught the left
passage. Talk with the knight of Pluto and go through the door to the prisons.
the hallway towards a big, big stair(which is by an old desk).
Climb them(on your way there, talk with the knight of Pluto).
When you reach the
top, you'll see a FMV, and then take controls of Zidane again. When you do, go
through the door the
princess went. You'll see Ruby. Talk with her, and go
through down the stairs. You'll see another real time cinema, and
through the door. Cinna will open a passage for you then.
You'll fall on the ship's engine room. Immediately
behind you is a wheel. Turn
it to the right and to the left then. This will make two chest to fall. Go left
wheel, up, and down the stairs. Check behind the machine for the first
chest and in front of it for the second one. Go
through the door then, where
we'll meet Steiner, and we'll also have to fight him.
Use steal with Cinna
to get the goodies he's holding, and use both Blank and
Zidane to attack. This should be easy.
After the battle,
the action will shift to the play. Pay attention to it.
Afterwards, Steiner, Garnet and Zidane will accidentally get into
the play, and
they'll had to improvise. Once the play is almost finished, Vivi will come and
wreak some havoc. After
this, Steiner will realize that he was pursuing you, and
a battle will begin(Your party is conformed by Marcus, Vivi, Garnet
Use Vivi to cast fire, both men to attack, and Garnet to heal. After the fight,
the ship will try to
take off, but Brahne attacks it, and sends a bomb. Now,
another battle will begin. Attack Steiner until the bomb explodes,
see a cinema.
other day, I gamesharked and gave Garnet 999 MP. Then, when I fought
Steiner, I used Bahamut, which caused about 3.000
points of damage, and...
Steiner was STILL alive!. This makes me think that Steiner has no HP in this
with the bomb)
The ship manages
to escape even though it was badly damaged, and with Garnet on
it. You'll then see a real time cinema where Brahne curses
the fact her daughter
escaped. There is something fishy going on here... Brahne seems to be needing
Garnet for something...
Goblin, Prison Cage, Dendobrium, Plant brain, plant spider
ITEMS: Phoenix down, Bronze gloves, Etherx3, leather
hat, Rubber Helm
Potion, Wrist, Blank's medicine, continental map
Once you arirve, watch at the cinemas,
and you'll be then able to control
Zidane. You'll also be forced to watch your first ATE, which is a glimpse of
you'll confront next. Once you can move, talk with the moogle here and
save, then go through the trunk. In the next screen,
random battles will finally
ensue. I suggest you to fight a few enemies to gain levels. Don't forget to
guys normally give potions. Afterwards, head towards the right.
You'll see a cinema. When it is finished, you'll have to
BOSS ENEMY: Prison Cage
Zidane trances at the
start of this battle. If you equipped the mage masher,
then this should be a cinch. Use normal attacks with Steiner(or
the Minus strike
if he loses a considerable amount of HP). With Zidane, select "Dyne" and then
select "Fre energy".
Don't use "Tidal Flame" because this WILL kill Garnet,
finishing the game instanltly.
Once you beat this guy, it'll
catch Vivi once again. This time around, he'll
help you by casting Fire, but Zidane won't be on trance. Use normal attacks
rely on Vivi's fire. Once the Prison Cage its finished, it'll launch some spores
which will affect both Vivi and
Steiner. Zidane, hopefully, evades them. The
action then shifts to the Prisma Vista.
You'll see Zidane and Baku
having an argument regarding Garnet. Zidane then
decides he'll have to look for Garnet alone, without any help. When you
control of him, return to where you argued with Baku, and get the items in the
chest. Return to the spiral staircase
and go down. On your way down, you'll have
to see several ATEs. Once in the bottom, head a bit left and snag the item on
chest, and then head right. Talk with Blank and enter the room. Inside, talk
with Vivi. Once the chat has been finished,
check the treasure chest here, climb
to the bed's top(the one next to Vivi's) and snag the gil. Return to the room
Zidane will suddenly have a flashback, and you'll be given a choice. Bow to save
Garnet. Blank then
suggests you to talk with Baku. Head left from Blank's
position into the next screen. Snag the item on the chest, and go
stairs. You'll be on the cargo room(where you started the game) once again. Go
through the door across the
stairs you used to get there. You'll find Baku
inside. He'll chat with Zidane, and then leave the room. Snag the item here,
go outside, where Baku will be waiting. In order to leave Tantalus, you'll have
to beat this son of a gun.
HP: About 160
would recommend you to steal the items he's holding, since they're pretty
good(an Iron Sword as well as a high potion).
Otherwise, stick with the attack
command until he gives up.
Once the battle is finished, read Baku's messages, and
head left once again. Go
through the door directly across the stairs, when you'll find Steiner. After a
lot of persuation,
he'll decide to go with you, and suggest you should visit
Master Vivi. Go down from the room Steiner was one, and then
all the way right
to Vivi's room. Talk to him, and then exit the room. Backtrack to the cargo
room, and go through the
door at the south. You'll find Blank, who'll gie you a
medicine. Snag the item on the chest, and go outside. Cinna will

evil forest once again then.
up both Vivi and Steiner here. It's gonna be a lot tougher because you
have two more party members, and the enemies will
give you less exp. This makes
this a lot tougher, as stated before. You should ba able to take them to level 3
Once you're finished, go to where you fought the prison cage, and go
down the ramp. Then head all the way forwards(You
may find Dendobriums who give
you more exp.) to a spring, where you'll find a moogle. Heal yourself on the

Then go towards the road at the right portion of this
area. Head forwards and go

HP: About 960.
is your first real boss fight, and as you can see(Hp, Hp...) is very, very
tough. The plant brain likes to use the Pollen
attack, which is terrible for
Zidane(and for Steiner, but don't worry about him). But what's worse, is the
which hits everybody. I've seen Lv4 Vivis falling against this
simple yet powerful attack, so watch out!. Rely on offense,
and not stealing(fro
now...). Use sword magic with Steiner(Fire), Fire magic with Vivi and attack
with Zidane. After
you caused enough damage to the Plant brain, Blank will come.
Use him to steal, and finish the fight.
fight, watch the cinemas, and fight enemies as they come. Watch the CG
at the end, and you'll be out the forest. The party
will then make a tent(I'm
not sure if this Tent heals you) and a moogle will give you the moogle flute,
which is used
to call for the moogles on the world map by pressing SQUARE. That
way, you can save. You'll be out in the world map once
the cinemas are finished.
now out in the huge world map of FFIX. Here, random battle will ensure.
I would recommend to fight a little bit to gain
new abilities and more levels
(specially for Garnet). Your next destination, the Ice Cavern, is just south
you are, but you could go east to a gate, where you can get some
nifty items and you'll be also able to buy medicine(by
knocking the door).
Either way, enter the Ice caver when you're ready.
ENEMIES: Fang, Wyerd, Cave
Imp, Flan, Black Waltz(Boss), Sealion(Boss)
ITEMS: Potion(x2), Tent, Ether, Elixit, Leather wirst, Phoenix down, Mage
After the little chitchat
with your characters, you may move on. Go up, and then
go down the ledges here and snag the item on the chest. Go down
the ledge and up
again until you arrive on the nexy screen. Here, you have two paths. Select the
one on the right, and
go up(be sure not to touch the wind or else...). You'll
bump into an ice wall. Examine it, and Vivi will melt it. Grab
the item, and
backtrack to the start of this path. Then, go around the right path, and grab
the potion. Backtrack again,
and this time around, select the right path and
head forwards towards the next screen.
In the next area, head right,
and you'll see a trunk. Use it to get to the
ledge, and snag the item. Then, have Vivi cast Fire on the trunk, which will
it fall. Use it to go down and to get the Mage Masher, which is the same
weapon you(hopefully) got from Baku the first
time you fought him, so you wasted
your time(unless you forgoted to steal this weapon from Baku). Afterwards, head
the way north, and grab the elixer on the chest. Head a little east from the
chest to the next screen. Here, grab the items
and melt the wall on the left to
get an item, then go north.
You'll arrive at a branch. If you're feeling unlucky
today, go left first, and
melt the moogle here to save your game. Afterwards, return to the branch and
break on through
the right path. In the next screen, a cinema will ensue. The
cold mist makes everybody pass out. Zidane will awaken a while
later. Equip him
correctly, and head towards the "door" on the right. You'll find Black Waltz
Number 1, who si the main
problem 'round here, so we gotta do a bit of killing.
Time to fight wise guy!.
ENEMY: Black Waltz # 1, Sealion
is a very tough battle. I was on level 7-8 by this battle, and it was easy.
Being on low levels will make it a lot tougher
of course. Steal the items from
the sealion(Mythril Dagger & Ether), and attack the Black Waltz then. With the
masher equipped, about four hits should be enough. Go for the sealion then.
Heal by using potions, and if you get into
trance, use Tidal Flame, which should
be enough to kill the icy beast.
Once the battle is finshed, Zidane will go
check on his friends. Once you regain
control of the party, go up by using the ramps and exit this place once for all.
the party will spot a city near where you appear. Zidane then suggests
Garnet to change her name. Surprisngly, Garnet agrees
with the thief, and
changes her name to Dagger. You'll be able to select another name though. After
all real time cinemas
are finshed, you'll be on the world map. Dali(the city you
saw after you got out the ice cavern) is just north from you.
You could go to the south gate, which
is to the left of the ice cavern exit.
There, you can buy items from Mary. On your way to Dali, you could visit the
Observatory mountain and talk with Morrid in the house on it to start the Mr
after you arrive, we're off the sleep. After Zidane wakes up, he'll
notice that everybody else is gone. Is up to you to
find them. Check the room
that, although little, has some items and nifty information on out. Go out the
inn then. Directly
across the in is the item shop, where you can stock up on
armor and weapons. Sadly, there is no medicine to stock up from.
Go out the
shop, and head north, where you'll find Vivi. After the cinema, head to the
right and enter the medicine
shop. Stock up, and head south. Read what Zidane
has go to say, and enter the weapons shop once again. Watch the cinemas,
then return to the inn.
Zidane talks about his adventures and mishaps with Garnet. Is not that Garnet
interested, but she's worried about Vivi. Go out the inn then(with Garnet
in your party) and head north to where Vivi was,
where you'll find he's
underground. Watch the cinemas, and enter the windmill. There is a hatch door
here, but ignore
it for now. Go around the machines, and get the stellazio. Go
up the stairs and grab the items on the windmills rooftop.
Go down then, and go
through the hatchdoor.
You'll be under...ground(you thought I was going to say "cover"!? Mwhahahahahah.
move on). Go forwards and use the little "lift" to go down. Snag the items
on the chest here, and head north. Garnet stops
you, and you'll hear two men
talking about Vivi. Once the cinemas are finished, enter the little room they
Vivi on, and get the items there. Afterwards, head to the right of
the room Vivi was on. In the next screen, you'll see
a couple of boxes, a
barrel, and a wheel. Use the boxes to get an ether, and kick the wheel to get a
the barrel then to find a moogle, who'll gladly save your gane.
Move on then.
In the next area, use the boxes to
get the items on the chest. Then go through
the the door at the north. In the next screen, we'll finally find Vivi, who
hidden on a coffin(the men we saw a while ago put him in there). After the
cinema, grab the items, and head to the
right(use the walkway by the machine).
Sdvance until you see a cinema. During that cinema, somebody discovers you, but
does the proper thing and saves the whole party. The action will shift
back to Steiner. See the cinemas, and then follow
mister morrid down the
observatory. On the bottom, search for items and grab them. Then enter the
house. Mr Morrid will
say the ship should have arrived. Go out the house and go
Steiner will spot the ship, as well as two men
taking some things out the
ground. The two men spot a "crazy knight running towards them" and flee. Steiner

argues with Zidane. Suddenly, a blue figure comes
flying and attacks your party.
ENEMY: Black Waltz # 2
guy is really easy. Have both Vivi and Steiner use Blizzard and Blizzard
sword(respectively) and rely on physical attacks
with Zidane. Garnet should use
Cure in order to maintain the party at good ship(casting Protect on your party
a good idea).
After the battle, you'll be given a choice. You'll be able to enter the ship
immediately, or to go
to the inn and rest and buy items. The second one is the
most recommended, as you'll be able to spend a little gil on items,
to regain your Hit points and magic points. When you're ready to go, head
north(from the inn) and all the
way right to the sip to get into it.
ENEMIES: Black Waltz Number 3
cargo ship is cinema full, and gameplay-less, so there are spoilers here.
After Garnet gets mad at Zidane for touching
her ass, you may control him. Go
throught the door. In the next area, you'll find Vivi trying to speak with the
mages, but they don't answer. Vivi gets sad then. Afterwards, head north
towards the end of the room, and go up the ladder.
You'll be at the deck, where
you'll find Steiner. Watch the cinemas, and you'll get to fight yet another
ENEMY: Black Waltz # 3
will be on Trance on this battle. You'll have Steiner and Zidane as your
backup. Have Vivi use two consecutive Thunder,
and Steiner use Thunder Sword,
and Zidane to steal. Once you stole all of the BW#3's items, have Zidane attack
This battle should be really easy. After the battle, watch the cinemas, and
you'll end up on Lindblum Grand Castle.
ITEMS: Kupo Nut,
Mini Burmecia, Autograph, Moogle Suit, Glass armlet, ether
echo screen, Tent(x2), Leather plate, Silver Gloves, Ore
Bronze Vest, Mimic card, Wyerd Card
ENEMIES: Fang, Mu, Zhagnol
after you arrive, the party gets amazed by Lindblum's genial
architecture. Garnet feels normal because she's been here
before. Before the
party can do a thing, a couple of guards will come, and demand for a proof that
Garnet is Garnet.
She'll show them the falcon claw, and they'll call for
Artania. See the cinemas, and after them, you'll be on a place with
a stair to the right and a lift directly across the fountain. Take the stairs on
next area, head right and go up when you first can(do not take the staies
down). You'll be on the guestroom. Head left
and then up the short stairs, and
then left again, where you'll find a moogle. You shoud save your game now. To
left of the moogle is a treasure chest. There is another one north of the
moogle, too. Once you gotten all of the items,
go out the guestroom and return
to the area with fountain, and go to the lift across it. Artania will then

We are heading to the top one.
see a cinema where Cid is finally introducedto you(what a surprise,
eh?). After the cinemas, you'll see Zidane entering
a bar, where he'll order the
stupid special. While there, he'll meet an old girl he knew before. After a
finally remember who she is. Freya is the name. They'll talk about
the festival of the hunt. Afterwards, you'll see a cinema
regarding Garnet and
Cid, where you'll finally learn what happened to Cid. After this cinema, you'll
see Zidane on the
inn. Talk with Vivi, who leaves, and go out your room. Enter
the room next to yours and save your game. Then go down the
Check the tea-table for more gil, and go out the inn. Directly across it is the
aircab, but don't take it
just yet. Instead, head all the way north to the next
screen. In here, you'll see two paths. The left one takes you to
a church. Enter
it, and go up the ladder behind the altar, and snag the item on the chest.
Return to the path split
again, but take the right path this time around. You'll
reach an area with a big pillar in the middle, as well as shops.
find the armory(right) the medicine shop(north) and synth shop, which is
northwest. I recommend snything
some weapons, specially the Ogre. After you are
done, head back to the inn and enter the aircab across it. Go to the theater
you arrive, go out the aircab. In the next area, go a bit south and enter
the house to the right. This is the artist house.
Grab the item on the chest
here, and then exit the artist's place. Head towards the stairs ad go down. In
the next area,
you'll see a big construction site. Enter it. This is the
tantalus hideout. Here, Zidane will start to sleep, and you'll
see more ATEs.
Afterwards, grab the gil on the chest, and grab the Mini Burmecia which is in
the second level of beds.
Go out the hideout, and south, then go down the
stairs. In the next screen, you'll see a lot of Lowell fangirls, as well
After the spectacle, go back to the aircab, but don't enter it just yet.
Instead, enter the
artist house, talk with the artist, and go out his house, and
go down the stairs. Go south and head towards you found the
moogle. Talk with
fangirls, and then Lowell will appear, as well as the moogle. The moogle will
then leave. Follow it
to the artist house, where you'll find Lowell. He'll give
you his autograph. Check on the barrels for the moogle suit.
So, Lowell was the
moogle!. After you laugh your butt out, head towards the Aircab and head to
Lindblum Grand Castle.
After you arrive, head south to the next area. Then, head
left, up the stairs and right. Head south then.
be on the fountain area once again. You'll hear Dagger's voice. Try to
use the lift, but some punk ass guard won't let
you pass. You can kiss my @$$!.
Oh well, I cannot be helped, so go up the stairs on the east part of the room.
right, but this time around, go down the stairs, and head left, where
you'll find a guard snoozing. Talk with him, and
Zidane takes him to the
guestroom, where he puts the guard to snooze once again, and takes his clothes,
the elevator once again, and select to go to the "upper level". In
the upper level, Zidane takes his clothes out. Avoid
being seen by the guards,
and take the stairs on the left.
Go around the big machine here, and go up the stairs.
You'll arrive at a
lookout. The guard here won't pay attention to you, so, head to the left and
then north, where you'll
find Dagger. Zidane will talk with her. After they are
finished, Zidane will look through the telescope nearby. You must
mark all the
locations in the map before you can exit the telescope view.
Ceebell River = By the south gate(below
Marshland = Right in the middle of the map, around the forests.
Aerbs Mountain = They surround Burmecia
Gate = To the north
???? Forest = Around where you see Chocobos
Aerbs Mountain(right) = They surround Alexandria.
watch the long cinemas. After all of this worthless information and
cinemas, you'll see a lot of people preparing themselves
for the festival of the
hunt. People will give freedom to Mus and Fangs. You'll then see Zidane and Co.
on the guestroom.
A guard will then come and ask for what you want to receive if
you win the festival. If Zidane wins, you'll get 5.000 Gil,
if Freya wins you'll
get a coral ring. If Vivi wins, you'll get a card(Prisma Vista). The best bet is
though Vivi's is not so bad). Is really hard to me to
give you an exact strategy, so all I can say is...
the festival has been finished, you'll be taken to the upper level, where
you'll get your prize. Regardless of who won,
you may get a different item(the
ones listed above). You'll also get the "Master Hunter" key item. After you
your prizes, a wounded Burmecian guard will come. He'll say that
Burmecia is being attacked, and ask for your help. He
then passes out. As a good
knight, Freya will offer her help. Zidane then adds himself to the mix. Same
goes for Vivi.
Garnet wants to go, but Zidane won't let her. Watch the following
cinemas until you can control Zidane once again. You
must go to the bottom level
and take the trolly to the dragons gate. Level up and buy items first(heal
yourself at the
inn, too) and save, because you won't be able to return Lindblum
for quite a long time. When you are ready, take the trolley

get a bell, and the guard will pass out. Use the bell on the locked door,
and go through it. You'll see Zorn and Thorn,

use it, you'll appear
on a plateau above the grotto. Here, you'll find certain
enemies... what enemies?. Oh, you're going to be surprised...
you'll find Grand
Dragons and Garudas. This enemies are very strong and WILL make mincemeat of
you. So, avoid this rope
from now. Try to exit the room the moogles are on, and
they'll give you another bell. Use this bell on the door to the

all the way north. You'll see Zorn and Thorn on
a balcony once again. They'll
throw at you two black mages, who'll attack you. Beat them, and enter the door

will be all right. Go up the stairs then.
In this area, enter the door right
down the middle(ah... brings back memories
'bout "Parent Trap"). You'll see two Burmecians. The female one wants to take
wife/bf out, but he's seriously wounded. The statuse behind them will
suddenly fall, But Zidane will save them before it
does so. They'll thank you
and then leave. Afterwards, head to the right and go up the stairs. There are
two doors here.
The right one is blocked, so ignore it out. Instead, go through
the left one. Grab the items and head north and go through

You'll go down to the docks, where you'll find Garnet singing. Zidane will
tell her the story of Ipsen and his friend. After the story, Dagger will finally

After she wakes up, she'll finally figure out she ain't from Alexandria. She
lived here in Madain Sairi(and
was called Sarah) until that day. Now, watch the
rest of the cinemas until they end. You'll have to select your party along
way. I recommend Zidane, Eiko, Amarant and Vivi. Once you are ready, go out
Madain Sairi into the world map, and
swing your leg towards the Lifa Tree.

queen, and therefore, he'll lose her forever.
Then, the Tantalus will come and
talk to Zidane, who's still sad. The tantalus gang will then leave. Outside, the
bums into Vivi. Blank then tells Vivi why he doesn't join them in the
theater. Vivi accepts.
You'll get to control
Vivi then. Enter the bar, and talk with Zidane. He's still
a bit sad, so he doesn't answer. Now, from the bar, head to
the right. In the
next screen, head south, and talk with the Hippo Family. If you want to do so,
check the subquests
section of this FAQ. Once you've raced Hippaul, head north,
and in the next screen, to the left. You'll arrive at the area
where the item
shop is located. Enter it(is the one to the right) and save your game. Now, go
outside, and head north
through the portal.
You'll be on Alexandria's Main Plaza once again. In here, you could go to the
left part of it,
where both the weapons shops and snyth shops are located. Both
of them are communicated, so you should have no problem
finding them. Synth new
weapons and armor, if necessary. Directly across these stores is the inn, where
you can rest
if you want to do so. To the north is the entrance to the castle,
but, we can't enter it. Not yet. Instead, head towards
the bottom left part of
You'll arrive at an alley. You should spot Marcus and Blank here; ignore them
now, and just head south. In the next screen, go right a bit, and then south.
Enter the bellhouse then. In there,
you'll see Kupo the moogle, as well as
Siltzkin, the combo selling moogle. He'll have another combo for you, which
on a Phoenix Pinion, Hi Potion, Elixir for 777 Gil. If you've been
buying all of his combos(ALL) you'll get a Circlet after
he gives you THIS
combo. After doing so, climb the stairs in here, and ring the bell above for the
Ramuh and Shiva car.
Now, head back to where you saw Blank, and talk with him.
You'll then see Garnet in his room. She'll ask Steiner
about Zidane, and then
Doctor Tot as well as Beatrix will come. Tot will hand over the Opal, Topaz &
contain the essence of the eidolons Ifrit, Atomos & Shiva(NOT
respectively). Garnet will then have to prepare. After
this, you'll see Eiko,
who has decided to write Zidane a love letter, now that he's far away from
Garnet. Tot will then
come, and because he looks so nerd :) Eiko will ask him if
he could write the love letter for her. Tot will accept. He'll
You'll see Garnet once again, but now with an elegant dress. After the scenes,
be able to control Eiko(whose letter has been finally finished). Head to
the right onto the next screen, where there is
a save moogle. Now, go out this
room, and head north into the next screen. In this screen, head north once
go down the stairs. Eiko will bump into Baku, and will skyrocket
towards a branch and get stuck there. Eiko will then ask
Baku to deliver the
letter to Zidane.
You'll see Baku on the fountain area. Steiner will the come, and he'll have
short talk with Baku, Baku will leave. Steiner will also leave. Beatrix will
then come, and find the love letter(it
escaped from Baku's pocket). She'll read
it, and she'll assume is from... Steiner!!!.
Anyway, you'll then see Zidane,
once again, in the bar. The Tantalus gang will
come again, and encourage him to see Garnet. Baku will the enter,
as well as
Vivi. Vivi will want to go and see Garnet, and Zidane will finally agree. After
you regain control of Zidane,
return to the main plaza. In there, go back to the
mini theater, and search inside it for gil and other goodies. Return
to the main
plaza, and head north. Enter the castle. There, you'll see Amarant and Freya
about to fight. Zidane will
prevent the fight.
After the cutscene, examine the area for more items, and then board the boat.
You'll arrive at
the castle. Now, enter the castle and head to the set of stairs
where you met Garnet for the first time. Garnet will appear
again, and talk with
her friends. Everybody will be happy with the exception of Zidane. Eiko will
change jewels with
Garnet, and then the game will resume.

"Bro, My nose is bleeding!"
"Then stick your thumb on it!"
You'll then see Eiko on the fountain, mad at Zidane. Blank and Marcus will
appear, and Eiko will hide. Steiner will then come, and Blank(as well
as Marcus) will try to hide(they'll drop the letter
in the process). Then,
Beatrix will come, and both she and Steiner will start to get near each

THE AUCTION HOUSE
The auction house, which is located to the far west of Treno, is where you can
get some excellent
equipment as well as key items unavailable otherwise. Like
the name implies, you'll have to bid in order to get these items.
bidder is the one who takes the item. The better the item, the higher the
starting price, and therefore,
the higher the bids. The key here is to let the
prize get a bit high, and then bid the current price plus 3.000 Gil(or
the current price is 10.000 or 5.000). That way, you'll ensure you get the item.
The item you can buy are random,
and you'll have to enter and go out the house
back and forth in order to get the item you're looking for. The items that
being sold are: Dark Matter, which enables its wearer to summon the dark warrior
Odin, Mini Cid, a miniature version
of Cid, Rat Tail, the mighty item that was a
pain in the ass to get in FFIV, Doga's Artifact---don't know about it, Une's
and a Griffin's heart.
=============================================================== RESELLING ITEMS
around the café carta will try to buy the items you got at the
auction. Talk with them, and they'll offer you money. Decline
once, and they'll
offer you a better amount of money. Decline twice, and you're f**ked. They'll
send you flying. So,
don't be greedy, and accept their second offer.

Now, head to the card stadium, and talk to the man behind the counter to start
the tournament. You'll first
have to fight the Attic Man Wake. This guy uses
magic cards, which are 1M. Select cards with 2M, 3M, 3P attack ratings,
for the killing. Try to attack him from the diagonal, and but do not enclose
your cards with his, or this could
end up in a combo, which is bad for you. Try
to make him put a healthy group of cards all together, and then make a combo.
we'll have to beat Cardona Bishop. She likes to use cards with lots of
arrows, so using cards with few arrows is basically
losing immediately. Use
cards with lots of arrows, and play offensively. Don't try to make Cardona form
a bunch with
her cards so you can combo her. Instead, go ahead, and try to flip
down all of her cards, because she WILL do so. Don't
neglect a combo chance,

The third fight is against Sailor Erin,

you beat her, Eiko comes and explains the situation.

will obligate them to do it again, because he believes
there is an Eidolon stronger than Alexander in this world. Then,
Eiko wakes up.
She enters a mini fight with the twins. Mog will appear and tell you to use the
Terra Homing. Madeen
will then appear and do the Terra Homing attack,
successfully beating both twins. You'll then get the Ribbon, which lets
summon Madeen, the strongest Eidolon(better than Ark, IMHO). Kuja will leave,
and Vivi will follow him. You'll then
see the twins merge. Party time!.

In here, you'll see Cid
talking with his wife. He'll apologize for having a
lover(or something like that). Cid will then ask Hilda if she can turn
a human again. Hilda will agree, with condition that Cid never touches another
woman. She'll kiss Cid, and
poof, Cid was reborn. You'll then get to control
Zidane. Go up the stairs, and use the save moogle to save your game. Then,

to gain more powers. She also tells you that the
connecting portal to Terra is
on Shimmering Island, but it is locked. She then tells you that Kuja,
her that to unlock the connecting portal you need to get the
four mirrors which are located somewhere in the Forgotten
Continent. The party
will call that place the Ipsen Castle. Then, everybody will notice Garnet is not
around, and Zidane
will be off to save her.

so, she'll grab Zidane's dagger(who thinks she's going to slice
her neck off)and
cut part of her hair off. She'll know look a lot cooler. At the same time, Cid
finishes his masterpiece,
the Hilda Garde 3, which is given to your party.
Now, press the triangle button and you'll be taken inside the ship.
The woman by
the ship "wheels" will take you to the world map again if you talk with her. The
man to the left will let
you change your party members. From now on, select a
solid party, the party you are going to use for the rest of the game,
for now on, you'll be training a lot, and training certain party members you'll
use for the rest of the game
is imperative. Now, instead of heading towards
Ipsen Castle, head towards the south portion of the world map, around the
Archipielago. Now, look for the Daguerreo. Keep in mind that getting her
is not mandatory.

He'll recognize you!.
Now, you'll have to solve the weapon's smith prob. To do so, first, examine the

the left of the Cleyran. Pull down the left level until

examine the staff by the Cleyran.
Zidane will take the staff to the hole you just found, and put it in there.
examine the levers once again, and pull the right lever. You've fixed the
problem!. Use the pillars to get to the weapon's

You'll be able to buy items from him now!. This guy has really good stuff. Waste

castle properly. Inside, search to the right and
to the left for some goodies,
and then go through the door at the end of the room.
In the next screen, advance forwards,
and grab the item on the chest. Then, go a

stuff you had to do here, return
back to the room with the moogle. In here, three trap doors have appeared, and

Now, return to the entrance. From the door you come
out, look to the left.
You'll see an staircase. Go up this staircase, and go through the door right
down the middle.
Now, just keep advancing until you find a lift. Use it to go
down, and you'll arrive at Odin's room, where you'll see Odin's
sword. You'll also see a couple of pots here. You must move her in order to
drain all of the electricity
around the sword. To do so, move them from shelf to
shelf counterclockwise. The vases will drain all of the electricity,
get the ancient aroma. Now, return to the outskirts(the place with the big

to the courtyard(where the

is at the

until you find a girl, which looks a lot like Zidane.
Now, just follow her. On
your way there, you should take a few detours in order to get some goodies
'round here. The
path is pretty much straightforward, so I guess you should have
no problem with this part of the game. You'll eventually
reach an area with a

they're as cold as the ice. You'll then see Zidane again, and you'll
be able to control him.
Visit every house here.
There is one with a set of stairs to upper-right part of
it. If you go down these stairs, you'll advance with the history,
so ignore it
for now. You'll also come across with a house with a moving bucket. Examine it,
and a moogle will come
out. This moogle will let you save your game, and will

You'll get to control Eiko for a
short while. You could go out the bran bal and
fight some random battles to get some nifty experience. The enemies in the
of the city are very powerful, but they are also worth a lot of
experience. The Movers also give a lot of experience(not
as much as in FFV
though) but they can kill you with one hit(Delta Attack). Anyway, once you are
ready, chat with Amarant("catch
my drift?") and go through the green portal.
You'll learn that Zidane has already leaved.
ENEMIES: Amdusias, Malboro, Shell Dragon, Mover, Abadon, Silver Dragon, Garland
ITEMS: Holy Milter, Carabini Mail, Elixir, Battle Boots
you enter this place, you'll be greeted by Garland, the master of this place.
You must follow him by jumping from platform
to another platform, and hearing
what he has to say. He unveils more shocking truths. Apparently, Zidane is
vice versa?) and Kuja also has a tail! It is only
hidden!(DBZ?). After this, Zidane will pass out. He'll be then awaken
and Eiko, who finally caught up him. But, Zidane has changed his aptitude. The
weight of the truth has made
him a sad person. A soul less genome.
As he crawls out of his confinement, he'll fight an Amdusias. This thing is
hard, but you should beat it. He'll then find Quina and Steiner having
trouble fighting a monster, so he joins in and fights.
Beat the monster and
continue. This time around, he'll bump into a shell dragon, who'll cause a lot
of damage to Zidane,
leaving him near death. Fortunately, Garnet comes in and
applies a healing spell on him. You'll then have to beat the shell
you beat it, Zidane finally puts himself together, and the adventure resumes.
After you can control
Zidane, talk with the moogle here, and save your game. You
can also use this moogle to buy items and to switch party members
out. From the
moogle, head north into the next screen. In here, head north, and examine the
chair, and you'll get a
Holy Miter. Return to the previous screen(the one with
the moogle) and head south. In this screen, head to the left onto
screen. In here, you'll see several buckets(they are not exactly buckets, but
they look a lot like them) and
a big button in the center. Approach it, and
press X. Three buckets will catch on fire, and a timer will appear. You must
to the next screen by using the doorway to the south within the time
limit. If you touch any of the lighted up buckets,
you'll have to fight a Shell
Dragon, and to try again. Cross the holographic bridge, onto the next screen.
you'll see another weird gadget, which you should ignore by now. Keep
heading to the left into the next screen. Go up the
slope to the far left, and
examine the floating platform. There are several platforms of this kind here,
and you must
use the panel you saw in the previous screen to control these
platforms, so you can reach the top. This is HARD!. Keep
going back and forth
until your friends offer to help you. When they do so, return to the room with
the platforms, and
press select. You'll be able to handle the device. Keep
switching from one party to the other until you reach the top.
Then, step on the
In this area, there are several teleporters you must use in order to continue
your adventure. Head to the right, and take the first teleporter, and go up
one floor then, go left and teleport down.
Grab the items here, then teleport
back, head to the right, and use the teleporter there. Then, move up to the top
jump up the red platform and teleport back to the landing
platform(yes, it's the same thing the brady games guide says;
I couldn't explain
this part, sorry :()
Go down, and then head to the left. Stand on the tele porter, and you'll
taken to tele porter room once again. Head south, and then to the right. Step on
the tele porter, and head upwardly
twice. Then, teleport down again to the
lowest path(using other tele porter, if I remember correctly), head to the
and head upwardly twice(by using the tele porter here). You'll see
another moogle. Save your game, and go through the doorway
by it. You'll see a
couple of cutscenes. Then, you'll have to fight a series of enemies, in
succession, without rest(only
a few cutscenes). The format used below is
different from the one used on normal boss fights.
NOTE: The strategies
listed below are mainly for a party conformed by Freya,
Zidane, Eiko & Steiner/Vivi.
FIGHT # 1
The Silver Dragon
Weak Versus: None
AP given: 13
Hit points: 24.055
Spoiled items: Wing edge
Stolen items: Kaiser Knuckles, Dragon Mail, Elixir, Ether
Strategy: Thus guy is really
easy. The party I used for this fight(and the party
I used for the rest of the game) was conformed by Freya, Eiko, Zidane
Steiner(or Vivi). With Freya, I used Dragon's crest, which caused about 8.000
points of damage. Steiner used stock
break, Vivi used Flare, and Eiko Madeen. I
also had a lot of ethers(because the attacks I used waste lots of MP). For the
party members, use her/his strongest attack.
FIGHT # 2
Weak Versus: Physical attack(equip man eater) AP given: 0
Hit points: 40.728
Spoiled items: None
Stolen items: Dark Gear, Ninja Gear, Battle boots.
Strategy: He's also very easy. He uses the
Flare spell, which is the most
powerful thing he has, but hopefully, it is not that strong. If you equipped the
man eater, Zidane, Freya and Steiner will deal a lot of damage on this
guy. Amarant and Quina are also useful here, specially
if you have the mighty
guard blue magic. Eiko should use Madeen and concentrate on healing.
FIGHT # 3
Weak Versus: None
AP Given: None
Hit Points: 42.382
Spoiled Items: None
Stolen Items: Light robe, Carabini Mail, Ether.
Strategy: Kuja, unlike the others, is no pushover.
This guys uses a spell called
Flare Star which causes a lot of damage. Have Freya use Dragon's Crest, Steiner
sword skill(it could be either climhazzard or shock, if you've been
doing a lot of choco exploration). Zidane should steal
items and attack
physically, and Eiko act as a healer. Dagger is reduced to a healer too(she
chould also summon Bahamut)
and Amarant throwing abaility is very useful for
the battle, Kuja kills Garland, and trances(becomes super
saijajin[sajaiyin in Spanish] in other words). You'll then have
to escape. Just
watch the cinemas. You'll then end up on the invincible, the best ship in the
world, and the third disk
will finally come to an end.
At the start of this
disk, you'll see the party at the black mage village, whre
the genomes from Terra have been taken. The genomes and the
black mages have
started to be friends. You'll see a couple of cinemas, and after that, the party
decides to go after
Kuja. You'll then appear outside the black mage village,
inside the invincible, the best ship in the world. Before heading
endgame, you may want to do a bit of this and that. When you are ready, head to
the Lifa Tree, and press
circle when near the glowing ball. You'll see the best
FMV in the game(at least in my opinion) and then you'll have to
HP: 55.000 HP
This guys is very, very hard. Its
tidal wave attack will cause a lot of damage
on your party, and it hits everyone. I hope that before this battle, you've
abilities such as auto regen, auto haste and auto life. I also hope you
are at quite high levels. The party you should
be using is Vivi, Zidane, Freya
and Eiko. Have Freya use Dragon's crest, Vivi cast Flare and Zidane use physical
Eiko should be concentrated on healing and on casting an
You'll then enter Memoria. For this
last area of the game, I won't give you a
walkthrough, but a boss guide. Why?. Not, it is not because I am lazy, but
I consider that this last portion of the game is not that hard. And...
if spoiled all of the game for you, so there you
go. Bosses may be a little
hard, so I'll give you some short strategies for them.
This guy is also a bit tough. Follow these strategies: Have Eiko cast
Vivi cast Blizzaga, Freya Cast Dragon's crest, and Zidane steal(this guy has a
lot of nifty things on his possession).
By now, you should have dealt about
30.000 points of damage. Repeat and he's done for. Once he dies, he'll unleash a
attack, so keep the HP up.
BOSS ENEMY: Tiamat
guy is also very, very tough. First off, be sure you are equipped with auto
haste, auto regen and body temp(the last one
is the most important). For a cheap
strategy, cast reflect on all of your party members, and then cast Blizzaga on
of your party members to do a x4 attack. Have Eiko cast Madeen and heal,
Frey cast dragon crest and Zidan steal.
For this battle, I would recommend using this abilities: auto regen, auto haste,
life and body temp. Have Eiko cast Madeen, and Vivi cast Firaga on the main
body. Zidane should steal as usual, and Freya
cast Dragon's Crest on the main
body. You don't have to kill the tentacles, but two madeens kill them.
This guy is also very hard. Be sure your levels ain't multiple of five(50-55-
and equip the abilities auto regen, auto haste, auto life and auto float.
If you don't have auto float, then equip something
that drains earth type
attacks. Have Eiko cast Madeen, Vivi cast Flare, Zidane steal and Freya use
Dragon's crest. Keep
the pressure up and you should win.
BOSS ENEMY: Deathguise
guy is also very hard. He likes to cast Meteor a lot, and like Ozma, it
causes random damage. But unlike Ozma, is very
hard to see a 9999 meteor with
this guy. Have Eiko cast Madeen, Zidane steal, Vivi cast flare and Zidane steal
BOSS ENEMY: Trance Kuja
is one tough hooshee!. He'll use Flare star almost every turn, which causes
a lot of damage. He also likes to cast Holy,
Flare, Curaga(on himself of course)
and reflect(on himself). Set up Eiko as your healer, and have her use an
Madeen. Freya should use dragon's crest, and Vivi Flare. Zidane
should his physical attacks and trance skills.
This is also a very tough enemy. His neutron ring is very powerful(it
character HP down to one!). His grand cross causes random status to your party.
Have Freya use Dragon's crest,
Eiko heal and cast Madeeen, Vivi cast Meteor or
Flare, Zidane use remedies to cure statuses that grand cross causes and
trance skills if he trances. Once he's finished, sit back and enjoy the ending.
