Anyone here play FFX/FFX-2? I'm playing FFX at the moment.

Im a big fan of the series, and i am currently replaying X at the moment, im near enough at the end, just getting everyones Celestial Weapons, i have gotten Yuna's, Tidus's, Auron's, Rikku's and Lulu's Celestial Weapons.

Im playing Bitzball at the moment to get Wakka's Overdrives and his Jupiter Sigil :p

I've played them, completed 10, not completed 10-2.

Didn't enjoy either as much as FF 6/7/8/9 though, and X-2 was just.. it didn't have the FF feel.

I found it hard at first, do you have any of the Celestial Weapons? Auto-Life is also a good spell to have.

Yep. Can't find the last item required to remove the No AP effect from the Masamune. I don't have Auto-Life. I ran out of L4 Spheres. How can I get more?

I just randomly got them in battles, just train up a little in the Omega Ruins, sometimes enemies drop Level 4 Key Spheres.

Hey, Im stuck in X-2 chapter 2 at Macalania woods o_O Anyone know where the blue butterflies you have to find are? I think I have one already, a ring that you jump through on the treetop bit, but I cant find the other one. Thanks in advance if anyone can help :p :whi:

The other one will be somewhere on the path to Bevelle (I think it's called that). I can't remember where exactly it is.

I've got 97% on FFX-2, I dunno what else I'm missing.

FFX-2 is, in my opinion one of the worst sequels to a game ever. It tarnished FFX in a way I find almost unforgivable. Here's why:

- Everyone except Rikku had a personality transplant. Yuna Rikku and Paine now resembled charlie's angels. Yuna's change was a bit too much for me.

- All the symbolism and clever undercurrents about religion and changing society were completely lost.

- All it had were a few tweeks and additions along with a few extra areas.

- The jobs system ISN'T new contrary to what many might think. This system dates back to FF5 only this time the jobs are now dresses and you can get changed during battle. Not exactly an advancement in my opinion.

- The exploration and travel factor was lost. Apart from a few new areas everywhere else had already been explored in FFX. The airship is there for you from the very beginning making getting from A to B faster than lara in TR:L - not good...

- Another example of recycling were the enemies, most had already featured in the previous game, only this time they've all been given differant names. Is this trying to people into thinking they're new?


What FFX-2 lacked was the invoation of the previous Final Fantasy games and the sincerity of every carefully crafted story and world the games are set in. Everything was very predictable.
Anyway, they're my thoughts on the FFX-2 subject...I'm sure there'll be those who disagree which is fine.

By the way, I'm currently replaying FFX, I'm at the aftermath of the crusaders attack. A great game :)

There is one thing I REALLY HATE in FFX & X-2. That is BLITZBALL!! OMG!! Who thought of this total rubbish? It's a stupid rip off of Football but much worse. It's WORSE in X-2 you CAN'T control the players. It's like a cheap rip off of Championship Manager.

I must be one of the few who really likes blitzball. When I'm playing FFX I find myself playing it a lot but with FFX-2 I was completely put off because of how all the thrill was lost. It didn't feel rewarding at all. So I half agree. For the record, I'm not deliberately against FFX-2 but I happen to not like it if that makes any sense lol

Exactly. FFs aren't supposed to even have sequels. I think making FFX-2 was completely unnecessary.

EDIT: About blitzball, I got my ex-bf hooked on it when I was playing FFX. He doesn't play FFs otherwise :p

Help! Looking for Mars Sigil for Auron's Celestial Weapon. I dunno how to get it.

Nephili
01-09-06, 22:15
To get the Mars sigil, you have to capture 1 of every fiend in 10 different locations, then go to the Monster Arena in the Calm Lands, and the owner will give it to you.

Its sounds alot of work, but its quite easy and quick.

TR FAN 18
02-09-06, 07:59
OK, thanks.

Now I'm trying to beat the Dark Aeons. I've beaten Dark Valefor but I can't beat the others. Every one of their attacks does 99999. How is this possible?

Nephili
02-09-06, 08:17
The Dark Aeons are extremely hard enemies, ive only beaten Valefor, Shiva and the first fight Ixion. Basically i would just train up loads before taking them on, and try and get Auto-Phoenix on 2 of your characters armor, that helps loads, and Auto-Haste is great. The spell Auto-Life is a good thing to have aswell.

Oh and get your Aeons overdrives up aswell, and set the characters overdrive mode to Comrade, so basically if Rikku gets attacked by a Dark Aeon, and it takes out her life and she gets K.O'd, the other 2 charactersa out at the time, their overdrives will fill up automatically each time.

Good Luck!

Reggie
02-09-06, 10:10
Another small tip is to make sure you have someone on the team equipped with the "initiative" ability if you plan on fighting Dark Yojimbo. If you don't have it equipped, then your party will be instantly taken out by a wakizashi attack (with full damage). Assuming you have break damage limit, you should be fine if you go with mine and Nephili's advice. But I do admit to not being able to beat them all. They are difficult but good luck ;)

TR FAN 18
03-09-06, 09:59
Still training my characters right now. I've got Yuna's strength from 9 to 130 in 2 days. Most of my Aeons have 255 Strength but when I use Anima's Oblivion it only does 6000 per punch which is not good enough.

I've beaten Dark Ixion now! I used Yojimbo's Zanmoto. But it cost me 530000 Gil! Is there any way to get him to use it for FREE?

EDIT: Found an easy way to level up my characters. Go to Omega Ruins and do LOADS of Battles and have Double AP. You will then get at least 20000 AP. Highest I got was from 2 Zaurus' and a Floating Death - 68400 AP.

Reggie
04-09-06, 10:27
About Yojimbo, you have to pay him a minimum of 1 gil. Yojimbo will still attack but the likelihood of him using Daigoro (where he uses his dog) goes up whilst the likelihood of Wakazashi and Zanmato (or the the other attack where he throws blades...) goes down. If he uses Daigoro Yuna's relationship falls by quite a lot which means the likelihood of Yojimbo using Zanmato, Wakizashi etc. goes down as well. Bear in mind that so long as Yojimbo doesn't use Daigoro, your relationship with Yojimbo will continue to improve - if this continues then you won't have to spend so much money getting him to use his better attacks, so invest in the relationship now and spend a couple thousand at least if you want to get more for your money in the future :)

04-09-06, 14:55
Ive beaten Dark Valefor, Dark Shiva and the first battle against Dark Ixion, but i havnt gone up against him again or the others yet, because ive been doing the Blitzball Tournaments and Leagues to get Wakka's Jupiter Sigil, i got all his Overdrives! Just gotta do 5 more matches and ill have his Sigil, then ill go for Kimarhi's final weapon also.

TR Fan you should get the Ribbon ability on one of your characters armor, and that will make you immune from any status aliment, so that should help you out alot. It helps me out alot when i go up against Malboro's.

TR FAN 18
04-09-06, 15:07
Yep, Yuna has the Ribbon ability. I also have 4 Dark Matters so I could use them for another 2 Ribbons. Characters I use are Tidus, Yuna & Auron. I still need to get the Mars Sigil for the Masamune. But I'm not catching monsters at the moment.

YES! I got Yojimbo to use Zanmato for just 1000 Gil! :jmp:
It appears I don't have enough for any more Ribbons. I only needed 2 DMs before.

I went against Yojimbo and Auto-Life was useless. Zanmato killed me EVEN with Auto-Life.:confused: I beat him FOUR times and he came back AGAIN! Now I'm down to 800000 Gil after using Zanmato 4 times. At least I can get the money back by fighting the Mimic in Omega Ruins. They are worth 50000 Gil!
I used the Magus Sisters against Dark Yojimbo and the stupid things take a break ONE TURN BEFORE Dark Yojimbo uses Zanmato.

Not only that but I have to beat him 5 TIMES! And he has 1,000,000+ HP. Zanmato kills instantly EVEN with Auto-Life. I also can't beat the Dark Magus Sisters, I use Yojimbo, pay him like 800000 Gil and he STILL WON'T use Zanmato or he will use Wakizashi automatically.

Actually beleive it or not, Dark Bahamut is the worst. After you hit him five times, he counters with impulse which deals slow even to Aoens and with ribbon armor. It might other status but I don't know.

Anima is easy for me.

And Magus are only hard if you fight them all three together. But if you run to the left into the next screen and keep running the road (as if you were headed for operation Mi'Hen, the three dark summoners will follow, but Dark Cindy will get tired and you'll end up fighting Sandy and Mindy (Meaning no Delta Attack) then you head back and kill Cindy, easy fight.

Yojimbo is the easiest one. He's Very weak against magic so have Lulu Doublecast Ultima and have the other two Copycat (If you're at a high level that is)

Also you can beat him with any Aeons. You'll need 50,000 + HP though. With an Aeon with that amount of HP, keep his/her health above 50,000 all time, and when he's about to use Zanmato, use Shield. Dark Yojimbo's Zamnato doesn't cause death but 99,999 damage, so you can reduce it.

Have protect also and since dark Yojimbo is weak against Magic heal you Aeons with Doublecast Drain. Since Curaga only heals 13,000+ and can only be cast once per turn. Drain deal/heals 15,000+ so you can get about 30,000 HP per turn.

That's about it I think.

You can get them by killing Iron Clad in Monster Arena, and to unlock him you need to capture many Iron Giants/Gemini.

You'll get two after every battle.

With many clear spheres and HP spheres, I got 50,000+ HP characters. And with HP + 30% and HP+20% I reached 80,000+ HP.

Yojimbo is not that difficult, except for its Zanmato, but he uses that technique after 4 or 5 turns, so you know when to place an Aeon as a shield. It´s possible to defeat it with 9999 HP

Oh no! I'm down to 1 Wings of Discovery. How do I get more? I tried the Chocobo race and all I got was a Potion. I don't want to have to Bribe enemies for them.

Hope this helps:
For lighting dodger grab a pen and paper and draw 20 boxes. Every time you dodge 10 pause the game, mark one box and take a break. Then restart counting from 1 to ten and keep repeating the process untill all 20 boxes are tiked.

This actually helps a lot cause you won't have that much pressure that a big number may cause you.

No encounters helps.

I actually found a faster way than that. A little farther to the north from that hole, there's a bump on the rod which 2 thunders strike one right after the other. After a few seconds two more strike.

I hate X-2, and the character I like most is Auron. I hate Tidus the most I think. If I were to play X-2 again, I'd avoid saving Tidus... :)

i have to admit, FFX-2 was my first final fantasy and i like it. The battle system is very good, and i quite like the class system, but sometimes its a bit crazy and some of the classes are really hard to level up.

i have to admit, FFX-2 was my first final fantasy and i like it. The battle system is very good, and i quite like the class system, but sometimes its a bit crazy and some of the classes are really hard to level up.

This feature is available from chapter 3 onwards from the first play, and also the fastest way I discovered.

First head to Luca to win lady luck. when you're playing sphere break (Mine against Shinra) chose a coin which gives Item, and you might get the Treasure Hunt GG. The grid gives Mug ability.

You can also get the Horn of Plenty GG from bikanel island (the locked treasure chest). The key can be found in a dig in the central expense. This GG give nab Gil ability.

Once you have one of the GGs, head to Besid cloister of trails. Equip one of these 2 GGs, lure bracer and set the cursor to Memory in the config.

Set the cursor on Mug/Nab Gil. And keep using these abilities. This results in gaining 1 AP with every hit, not to mention an item/ some gil(only with first hit). Anyway, you will gain 1 AP everytime you hit the enemy even if they're out of gil or items. What's important is that you hit. You will also gain 1 ap with every defeated enemy.

This helps alot especially if you're trying to master alchemist, berserker and Mascot.

Note: If you have AP Egg equip it and you'll recieve 3 AP with every hit and 3 AP with every fiend killed.

Feel free to ask if you have difficulties :)
Hope this helps.

YESSSSSS!!! I beat Dark Yojimbo and Penance last night. :jmp: I used Yojimbo's Zanmato on Penance. There must have been another way, but it had 12,000,000 HP and would take HOURS to beat without Zanmato. HOWEVER, it cost me ALL my Gil so now I'm down to 0.:( Anyone know an easy way to get Gil?

I'm now playing FFX-2 and have got 97%. I dunno what else I'm missing. I need to find 2 Dresspheres, Mascot & Trainer. I still got to find some GGs. Also, I HATE that Sphere Break minigame! Luckily I found a cool site which shows you the BEST moves to make. It's a program called "I Hate Sphere Break." However, it seems to be gone now. It was here: http://aeroleviathan.com/projects/
With that I was able to get a MASSIVE Echo Bonus.

Ultima is Black Magic right? Then, why isn't it on the Black Mage Dressphere? It's not on the Dark Knight DSP either. If it was on one of the Dresspheres, I would think it would be LOADS of AP to learn. I'm still trying to get the Trainer & Mascot DSP.

Just got 3307 Points in the Gunner's Gauntlet! There's a "BLIND SPOT" where the enemies CAN'T attack you.

Ive never been able to work out why Ultima isnt there, and Holy isnt on the White Mage either. But using the Alchemist i managed to mix 2 items which made Holy, i cant remember what they were though!

See if you can find a mixing guide online, you might be able to find something on there.

Those are accessories called Bloodlust and Wring

to get Bloodlust accessory:

Under Bevelle in the area with the moving cages where the "you-know-who" is
held captive as seen in the spheres. When you first come here, you will see
moving cages, the switch for controlling the cages is out of view. To see it
just walk along the very left side of the whole arc shaped pathway,
pushing towards the left edge at the same time.

If you done this correctly you will see a pit with a switch at the bottom
(giant symbol switch) step on it (Press X or O depending which version of
the game you are playing), climb up back to the arc pathway. Directly
across the pit at the right edge of the arc shaped pathway is where you
can jump to the top of the cage. That is if you happen to have the cage to
the suitable height. If not go back to the switch and activate it again.
Play around.

If you have successfully jumped to the top of the cage a mini event occurs
between Yuna and Rikku. Rikku will control the switch this time while Yuna
goes for the treasure. This treasure is in one of the background's arc shaped
pathway with doors. You can actually jumped to the background's arc shaped
pathway from the cage. The treasure is on the very left side on the top most
arc shaped pathway (There are 3 pathways available)
Trial and error is important here. Don't lose your patience.
Available in SL2, SL3 & SL5

I once found a really good coin for Sphere Break. I found an Omega Weapon Coin and it's effect was "Quota X4." That means each coin used with that is worth FOUR. Combine it with Echo Bonus for MASSIVE points. You can find it at Bikanel Island in the Excavation minigame.

For me it comes down to two things, the story+characters and the actual gameplay since the graphics were basically the same.

Final Fantasy X Just did it for me, it had me in love with it the entire time, the story still had the beautiful romance between the characters and amazing cast of characters along with the hugely twisting ending that brings me to the sequal.
Final Fantasy XI Had one of the best fighting systems of all the Final Fantasy games, the garment system was thoroughly enjoyable and the fact that you had the choice to make the character how ever you wanted with their leveling up made it that much cooler. I loved how it was in real time and you couldn't just strategize slowly you had to take action fast.

Both had cool characters and graphics but Final Fantasy X definintely takes the cake for the incredible fantasy story with its signature romance between the main characters.

The Ruin Depths is a big maze and like the Fiend Colony you get no map. You have to find the Amazing Chocobo. There's also a Boss in there called the Anything Eater but he's easy to beat. Only ~36000 HP.

I know the password in the Djose Temple but it's that machine you use to apply for a raise in the Excavation minigame. I can't get a raise! 300 Gil sucks!:hea:

Sorry, I don't feel comfortable giving out my name.
