|_____________________________________________________________________________|

So this is my first FAQ. I've been an avid gamer, specifically RPGs, Adventure 
and the like, since I was maybe 5. I was part of the Dragon Warrior via 
Nintendo Power wave, which is cool to say historically-speaking.

I've taken notes and built my own guides before, mostly tracking systems for 
completing achivements or streamlining information, and the lack of 
centralized info on this surprisingly well-developed game made me want to try 
my hand at it. I'm definitely not the funniest writer on the internet so this 
will be more factual than a hilarious read. I also don't care about putting in 
information you can get in-game by reading tutorials like the button scheme or 
superfluous stuff like character descriptions, which falls under 'spoiler' 
territory for me. Not that character bios are spoilerific, but I want this 
to be a gameplay guide, not a story or incidental one.

So take this all with a grain of salt, and I will absolutely appreciate (most) 
any and all (constructive) criticism. I know there are tons of people with 
great advice and insight and I would love to hear from them!

|_____________________________________________________________________________|


===============================================================================
Prologue   [ffd_pro]
===============================================================================

Watch the cutscene until you have control over Sol, Glaive and Diana. Head 
south and around the mountains to the Checkpoint. Watch the cutscene until 
Aigis joins your party. Head back north and around the mountains to the town 
of Lux. 

+-----+
| Lux |
+-----+

Items:   Potion, Eye Drops, 100 gil, Leather Hat, Phoenix Down, Potion, Tent, 
         Maiden's Kiss, Silk Robe

When you're done exploring, head north to the Castle Lux for a cutscene and the
secret entrance to the dungeon.

+------------------+
| Below Castle Lux |
+------------------+

Items:   Leather Shield, Tent, Broadsword, Potion, Leather Helm, Potion, 
         100 gil

When you enter the basement, go right for a Leather Shield. Take the north 
stairs down. Take the right fork here to pass a chest with a Tent. Head north 
and west for a Broadsword and a Potion in two chests. Further north is a 
staircase back up.

Head to the left and pull the chain to open a gate. Backtrack and head right to
find 3 treasure chests with a Leather Helm, a Potion and 100 gil. Continue to 
the north to find a staircase leading back into the castle.

+------------+
| Castle Lux |
+------------+

Items:   Antidote, Leather Shoes, Potion, 200 gil, Eye Drops, Phoenix Down

Once inside the castle head north for a custcene and your new mission. Then 
head south to explore the castle.

The left door leads to a room with mages and an Antidote inside a pot. Taking 
the left staircase leads to the west tower where there are Leather Shoes in the
rear left pot. A pot on the right holds a Potion. Continuing upstairs and 
through the gap in the wall leads to 2 treasure chests with 200 gil and some 
Eye Drops. Cross over the walkway to the east tower and find a Phoenix Down in 
a pot here.

There isn't anything else to find in Lux so head east from town across the 
bridge and north through the mountains to find the Northern Cave. There's a 
Chocobo Forest just north of the castle with both Yellow and White Chocobos, so
you can take a ride if you'd like. Enter the cave when you're ready.

+---------------+
| Northern Cave |
+---------------+

Items:   Cotton Cap, Sacred Candle, Maiden's Kiss, Ether, Dagger, 
         Leather Shoes, Leather Armor, Tent, Phoenix Down

Take the staircase inside and head east for a chest with a Cotton Cap. Heading 
north from the entrance and to the left is a chest with a Sacred Candle. Go 
down and head east, stopping at the chest for a Maiden's Kiss. Once on the 
upper ledge to the east, loop down and right for another chest and an Ether. Go
back to the split and head up the stairs to 2F.

Head clockwise to find a Dagger. Return to the floor entrance and work your way
down, finding a chest with Leather Shoes inside, and ignore the second stairs 
up to go left instead. The chest here holds Leather Armor. Continue on and down
the stairs for a save point. You can use a Tent here, but probably don't need 
to.

In the next room you'll find a new party member and a boss battle.

*********
Manatoise
*********

Your new party member has Red Magic to level 3, so make use of his spells. The 
Manatoise is weak against Ice, making him and Aigis your MVP's. The Manatoise 
can attack with Carapace for 40-50 damage so just keep Diana on healing duty.

After the fight head down and around towards a chest with a Tent. Then go all 
the way to the top of the screen for a Phoenix Down. Mog will sell you some 
gear (the same as Lux) if you want it before you exit the cave.

Once outside, make a quick loop and get ready to enter the Crystal Temple.

+----------------+
| Crystal Temple |
+----------------+

Items:   Feathered Cap, Bronze Hauberk, Phoenix Down, Antidote, Bronze Helm, 
         Bronze Armor, 600 gil, Potion, Pointy Hat, Tent, Rod, Metal Claw

Proceed directly ahead and through the door. To either side of you is a visible
door and a door heading downwards. Each avenue has a chest, so explore to find 
a Feathered Cap and Bronze Hauberk to the east and a Phoenix Down and Antidote 
to the west. Further to the north are stairs leading to 2F.

This floor looks similar to the ground level, so work your way down and check 
the side rooms for a Bronze Helm in the eastern room and then a Bronze Armor in
the center room. Nothing is in the left path, so head down and through the door
in the back of the structure for 600 gil. On the southside of the same 
structure is the staircase leading up to 3F.

Through the back door of this structure is another chest, this time with a 
Potion. Take the left path at the fork for a chest with a Pointy Hat and a 
south-facing door leading to a Tent. The stairs to 4F are to the right side of 
the fork.

In the room ahead of you, to the right of the large path, is a Rod. The 
opposite room across the hall holds a Metal Claw. Finally, head down the 
path to the final save point of the Prologue. North of here is the Crystal 
Chamber, and like all good Final Fantasy's, you know a save point means...

**********
Watchbeast
**********

The Watchbeast is weak to fire, so make sure you use Elgo as your main offense 
for a lack of many other options. Diana can heal while the others chip away at 
his health. He has a Blaze attack which hits your whole party for about 40 HP
which shouldn't be a crisis at this point. When you deplete his life, he'll 
charge and attack with Soul Despair which reduces everyone's HP to 1 and 
forces a custcene.

Here you'll get glimpses of your future guest characters (and guest, archetypal
PC's) before four other warriors come in and go after the crystal, bringing an 
ominous narration break and the Prologue to a close.
 
Note that the game will repeatedly ask if you're sure you want to save when 
transitioning between sections. This is due to the original installment format 
of the game on Japanese cell phones. The English port allows you to (mostly) 
go back and visit areas you've already been to.


===============================================================================
Chapter 1: Reckoning   [ffd_ch1]
===============================================================================

The action picks up introducing the four mysterious warriors and some new 
characters, including an Imperially-inclined Cid. The exposition here takes 
some time so get comfy.

+----------+
| Harmonia |
+----------+

Items:   2x Potion, 2x Antidote, Tent, Phoenix Down, Potion, Chest (5x Potion, 
         3x Phoenix Down, 3x Golden Needle, 5x Antidote, Tent, 1000 gil)

When you're given control of Nacht, Alba and Dusk, take a minute to explore for
goodies. The upper-leftmost barrel and the lower-right pot both have Potions in
them. Alba's house, in the northeast, has an Antidote in the pot. The house 
south of here has a pot with a Tent. Inside the middle house to the south is a 
bar with some soldiers and a Phoenix Down inside the pot. The house to its left
has an Antidote inside the pot. The large house north of these is filled with 
villagers and a northeast pot with a Potion.

When you're done, make your way outside and to the nearby airship. There aren't
any battles to fight yet so just enter the airship and speak with the guard to 
board the airship. You need to speak to everyone in the room to initiate some 
more traveling introductions. At this point, Cid will give you a chest with 
some equipment and items for your party.

After the airship lands you'll notice a soldier with a healing pot in case you 
run low on HP/MP. You could fight some battles if you'd like, but it won't make
much difference before you get your first Jobs. Just head north to the mountain
pass.

+---------+
| Mt. Lux |
+---------+

Items:   Iron Bangle, Potion, Tent, Iron Bow, Leather Shoes, Hi-Potion, 
         Kenpogi, Ether, Phoenix Down, Spear, Iron Shield

Follow the path and climb up the first two cliffs. The cliff to the right at 
this split leads to a chest with an Iron Bangle. Go all the way west to another
cliff, this one heading down, for a Potion. Now take the center cliff up to Mt.
Lux: East.

Go up the left cliffs for an Antidote. Taking the right cliffs up leads to 
another split, the east cliff holding a Tent. Further up the mountain you can 
double back down a cliff to find an Iron Bow. All the way up the mountain is a 
cliff to the next area.

At this point you may have noticed that the Bombs tend to use Self-Destruct 
when they get low on HP, so be careful to group your attacks to finish them 
off. The Iron Bow can be useful for Dusk to some damage, since you'll want to 
keep him in the back row at all times.

At the Summit you'll find a save point and two chests. The lower one holds some
Leather Shoes, the chest at the very top of the mountain holding your first Hi-
Potion. To the left is a cliff where you can start your descent down Mt. Lux: 
West. There will be a few new enemies here as well.

Straight down is a hard-to-miss chest with a Kenpogi in it. Didn't this use to 
be multiple words in prior games?  The tall spire nearby has an Ether and a 
Phoenix Down is near the top of the stairs. A few short cliffs down put you 
next to a chest with a Spear, which doesn't add much attack to the Iron Sword 
you already have but comes with the Wind element that all flying enemies are 
weak against. Head down a series of cliffs to Mt. Lux Base: West.

Another series of cliffs lets you head to the left and climb up again for an 
Iron Shield. At the very bottom of the mountain is a short cutscene and the 
exit. Head immediately south of the mountain to find the reverse entrance to 
the Crystal Temple.

+----------------+
| Crystal Temple |
+----------------+

Items:   Iron Helm, Iron Armor, Phoenix Down, Tent, Main Gauche, Headband, 
         Ether

There will be a healing pot to your right which you can make good use of before
you delve in. A staircase will take you to 2F.

You're faced with two doors here. Take the right door and stairs back down 1F 
and an Iron Helm. Back at the split take the left door and stairs to another 
section of 1F. There is a staircase here, but don't take it before you search 
the unlit candle to open a secret passage and collect the Iron Armor. Then 
proceed up to 2F.

Wind around the path there and go down the stairs. Back on 1F you'll be in an 
isolated room with two chests containing a Phoenix Down and a Tent. Return to 
2F and go up another set of stairs to 3F.

You'll find three doors in front of you here. The middle one leads to another 
two doors facing down, the right of which has a chest and a Main Gauche. The 
right door has a Headband and the left an Ether. Now you can run around the 
room and up the stairs to 4F.

There's another save point here, so heal as you see fit and prepare for battle 
and head north to join the two stories' timelines.

**********
Watchbeast
**********

Same fight as before, except that this time when you knock its HP down by 1600 
its Soul Despair won't call the battle off. Have Dusk ready to Cure the party 
and hammer out another 600 in damage to kill it.

+----------------+
| Crystal Temple |
+----------------+

Jobs:   Warrior, Monk, Thief, White Mage, Black Mage, Red Mage, Summoner

Storyline and plot happen for a bit, leaving you with half of your communal 
party, and not in the appropriate combination. Talk to Elgo, and then the two 
members of the Harmonia group to have them join your party. Talking to Elgo 
again will really get the game in motion. Pick up the Crystal shards to get 
your first 7 Jobs. Another conversation will happen with Elgo and the group 
before you're free to get the hell out of there.

The basic idea here is to get a character as high in a Job as possible so that 
they can unlock all its abilities and benefits. I started with a generic 
Warrior, Monk, White Mage and Black Mage combo for Sol, Aigis, Sarah and Dusk 
respectively. Until you start getting JP to spend increasing your level cap 
you'll probably be able to get several of their jobs to the initial cap of 3. 
This is also a good way to get some freebee Fusion Abilities. See the 
F-Abilities for more info.

Once you've coordinated your party, head back the way you came originally to 
exit the Crystal Shrine. Luckily you won't have to go back through the Northern
Cave thanks to a convenient leveling of the mountain and you can proceed 
directly back to Castle Lux. Once you get there, the group will decide to 
continue further on and explore what's happened with the world. Before starting
out though, make sure you go back to the northern Chocobo Forest and catch a 
yellow chocobo - this will gain your party the Chocobo summon magic.

Head south to the Checkpoint, which is now vacant. Once through you can head 
south again through a narrow mountain passage to the town of Liene.

+-------+
| Liene |
+-------+

Items:   Antidote, Golden Needle, Hi-Potion, 10 gil

Explore the town to find a few items and hear some chatter about how the world 
is a disaster. There is an Antidote in the pot between the two northeastern 
houses and a Golden Needle in the pot on the outlook to the south. If you walk 
under this outlook on the ground level, you can get a Hi-Potion from the pot 
near the lake. Lastly, don't forget to pick up your 10 gil from a barrel on the
ground level left of the Weapons Shop.

To progress the story, you need to stay at the Inn and see a cutscene featuring
Dusk and Aigis. Then you're free to head towards Castle Liene, which is 
inexplicably not near the town. En route you'll come across a mountain path.

+-----------+
| Mt. Liene |
+-----------+

Items:   Potion, Oak Staff, Ether, Tent, Antidote, Golden Needle, Metal Rod, 
         Hi-Potion, Headband, Kenpogi

When you enter Mt. Liene: South Base there will be a brief scene before you can
proceed. Continue forward and up the stairs to a chest in the upper right 
containing a Potion. Then weave around to the west and north up a ladder 
towards a cave entrance.

Inside, a chest immediately to the right holds an Oak Staff. When you go 
further in the cave there will be a split in the path. Go out through the first
door your find to Mt. Liene: South. A short ways across a bridge is a chest 
with an Ether. The rest of this path is a dead-end, so head back inside and to 
the right to the other exit.

Back in the same area but across the canyon, head west and up until you have a 
choice of paths. The lower path leads to a chest with a Tent. The upper path 
leads inside the mountain to a small room with a save point. Once outside 
you'll be on Mt. Liene: Summit. Again you'll have a brief scene and the party 
will learn the Magic Missile F-Ability.

Continue down from the Summit and down a ladder back into the mountain itself, 
Mt. Liene: North. Take the ladder to your right for a quick descent to a chest 
with an Antidote. Back around and down the left ladder is another chest with a 
Golden Needle, and an exit from the cave.

Once on the outside again there will be a chest immediately in front of you 
with a Metal Rod in it. The path leads around and up a bit before going down 
again and splitting in several directions. First, you can climb the short 
stairs for a Hi-Potion in the chest. Inside the cave entrance, a short path 
goes to a chest holding a Headband.  Then you can proceed south to the last 
area of the mountain. 

Once in Mt. Liene: North Base the stairs will lead down. If you double back up 
those on the left, you can get a Kenpogi from the chest. Take a quick trip down
the rest of the stairs and you'll exit Mt. Liene onto the world map with Castle
Liene a short distance to the west.

+--------------+
| Castle Liene |
+--------------+

Items:   Bard's Tunic, Tent, Elixir, Baghknakhs, Phoenix Down, Longsword, 
         Iron Helm, Iron Armor, Main Gauche, Ether

It won't take long to realize you won't have an especially warm welcome, and 
need to explore the castle while fending off a number of guards. Kill the first
group of 3 Soldiers and then head into the castle proper.

There are a few locked doors blocking your exit out the back of the castle, so 
we'll have to find a key first. Head into the eastern room to find a Soldier 
willing to sell you supplies and a pot which will restore your HP/MP. You can 
also grab a Bard's Tunic and a Tent in the chests.

Back in the entranceway, head up the stairs and into the Throne Room to find an
Elixir hidden in the northeast pot. The door to the bottom of the screen will 
lead you outside.

Loop around the main part of the castle and enter the doors for a chest with a 
pair of Baghknakhs. Further up is a staircase going back down into a new part 
of the castle. The pot in the lower right has a Phoenix Down inside. Take the 
other staircase to go further into the basement.

In this section you'll see soldiers walking around. If you run into them you'll
have to fight a combination of normal enemies. Keep in mind that some walk 
around slowly but some will speed after you pretty quickly.

Before going up, go all the way to the right and take the staircase. This will 
take you to a room with a chest and a Longsword, and another set of stairs 
leading to two chests with an Iron Helm and Iron Armor inside. Then you can go 
back to the lower level and go upwards through the narrow paths. Take the left 
path first for a chest with a Main Gauche. Double back and take the right path 
past some soldiers and into a room with a staircase leading further down.

Use the Save Point if you need to and prep for a mini-boss battle. This will be
against the Hell Minion, who calls a chimera-type enemy called Butch after you 
do some damage to him. Butch has a few strong attacks, including Roar to Stun 
you and Feeding Time which drains your life to him. Don't worry too much, but 
don't let your HP drop very low either. Also keep in mind that you don't have 
to kill Butch to win the battle. If you keep attacking the Hell Minion in the 
back row and kill him first, he'll tell Butch to avenge him and Butch runs 
away. This is awesome, incidentally. You won't get the experience or AP from 
Butch if you don't kill him , so it's your call. If you do, the Hell Minion 
will heal himself for 500 HP before attacking again.

Once you're out of the battle, free the Gnome from the first cell and talk to 
him about collecting Fangs and Tails. There's nothing you can do about this 
yet. When you free the guy in the second cell, check the pot inside for an 
Ether. There's nothing else you can do down here so backtrack all the way to 
the first entrance room.

Here you'll see a soldier unlocking the door to the left. Follow him in and 
your party will comment on how he must have used a secret entrance. You can 
explore the items in the room, but to unlock the door you need to grab some 
water from the bottom leftmost pot and water the flowers with it -- this will 
open a door hidden behind the bookshelf. You may also want to take the time to 
stop in and refresh your HP/MP with the pot in the east room, but there isn't 
much of the dungeon left. Once you go through the secret door you'll be able to
go north and exit the castle, as well as open the last locked door to the south
which will connect the entranceway on both sides.

Once you get out of the castle, walk northwest towards the grounded airship. 
You can also catch a Black Chocobo in the Chocobo Forest if you've forgotten 
anything you want to do before you finish the chapter.

+---------+
| Airship |
+---------+

Items:   Iron Shield, Crossbow, Potion, Phoenix Down, Star Pendant, 
         Wizard's Hat, *Aft Deck Key, Chain Whip, Hi-Potion, Iron Bangle, 
         Battleaxe, Ether

Once you're onboard the airship you'll have to fight off a Swordsman and 2 
Battlemages. This will give you an idea of the enemies you'll be fighting here.
You automatically enter the airship itself, so get acclimated and get going. In
the room in the center here is a Save Point and a Mog salesman.

Go further up in the main corridor and find a ladder heading down into the 
belly of the ship. You have two doors on either side and a bottom-facing door 
to choose from. The left door holds a chest and an Iron Shield, while the right
door has an alarm-triggered chest. You'll have to fight off 2 Swordsmen and 2 
Sergeant Majors, but get a Crossbow for your troubles.

Heading down through the bottom door you'll find more soldiers wandering around
like in Castle Liene. This part can play more like a stealth game though, so 
hide around corners if you want to avoid unnecessary battles.

You'll have some more path decisions here. The lower right door has a chest 
with a Potion. Above it in the upper right is a chest with a WHAT? and two 
soldiers. There isn't anything in the upper left room besides two more 
soldiers, so use the lower left door to find a dead end room with a switch on 
the wall. Pulling it will open a trap door letting you climb down the ladder.
You can go either way here and still find everything. I chose to go left. This 
brings you face to face with two guards and a chest containing a Phoenix Down. 
Slightly further up is another chest holding a Star Pendant. The door here will
be on your right.

This corridor runs north and south, and there is another door to the east which
will circle back to the ladder. If you head down quickly you can grab a 
Wizard's Hat. You need to go all the way north here, so use the bags and crates
to avoid enemies. There will be a lone door branching off to the left. This 
room has a Save Point if you need it before another mini-boss battle.

Enter the Storage room to the north and throw down with a Swordsman, a 
Battlemage and 2 Cavalier. After you beat them you'll get the *Aft Deck Key, 
which will unlock the door beyond the Mog. To get there, double back but take 
the right door out of the corridor this time. On the other side of the soldier 
here is a Chain Whip. At the lower part of the room past the other soldiers you
can find a Hi-Potion. This is all to be found in the lower portions of the 
airship, so make your way back to the Mog.

Climb up the ladder into a long north-south hallway with some soldiers. You can
still sneak around them to the two rooms on either side of the hall, an Iron 
Bangle to the left and a dead end with two switches to the right. Pulling the 
left switch here sounds an alarm with 2 Battlemages and a Cavalier. The right 
switch will open a door to the side leading to chests with a Battleaxe and an 
Ether. Then you can go to the end of the hall and use the Aft Deck Key to 
access the Bridge.

******Mild Story Spoiler Here******

You don't need to unequip any of your temporary party members to keep their 
gear like in the original 16-bit iterations, whatever they have on when they 
leave your group will be added to your inventory.

******End Spoiler******

You'll have a few consecutive fights here. The first is against 2 Battlemages 
and a Cavalier. Then you have to take down 3 Cavaliers. The second is the real 
boss fight, against a Battlemage, a Phalanx and the Captain. The Battlemage and
Phalanx act like normal, so knock them out quickly and focus on the Captain.

After this fight you'll have a few short scenes and be introduced to Baugauven,
one of the "four Avalonian Generals." These are the four elemental bosses that
you'll face throughout the game. He will then kill you. After some more scenes
you'll have to fight one more battle against a Cavalier and 2 Battlemages
before the airship crashes. You'll get a brief scene of the other party as well
before closing out Chapter 1.

World of Light: A Dragon's Love   [ffd_ch2a]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You'll get 5 JP to start the Chapter and regain control of your party in a 
field with the airship ruins. You aren't given much choice in direction, so 
head to the nearby town.

+--------+
| Braska |
+--------+

Items:   Phoenix Down, Potion, Hi-Potion, 50 gil

Exploring the town will find you a few items. In the main area, the 
northwestern crate holds a Phoenix Down and the northeastern crate has a 
Potion. You can find a Hi-Potion on the shelf in the house with the old couple 
and 50 gil inside a pot in the large house. There isn't actually anything to do
in the town, so stock up on any supplies you may want and keep moving to the 
adjacent cave.

+---------------+
| Cave to Deist |
+---------------+

Items:   Hi-Potion, Silver-spun Robe, Bandana, Phoenix Down, Healing Staff, 
         Tent, Steel Shield, 1000 gil, Poison Knuckles, Ether

Immediately to your right once you enter the cave is a chest with a Hi-Potion 
inside. Continue north and to the left, where you should take the southern path
for a Silver-spun Robe. The western path at that same fork will lead you to the
next floor.

Follow the path as it weaves to the west and south, taking the right path when 
given a choice to find a Bandana in the chest. The stairs are visible from here 
down the western path.

On the 3rd Floor you'll see a chest holding a Phoenix Down. There's a save 
point across the bridge here if you need it. When you proceed to the west 
again, stay on the lower level to get a Healing Staff. This will case Cure when
you use it as an item, although it doesn't seem to be as effective as your 
White Magic since it doesn't benefit from any stat boosts. Now you can loop 
around on the upper path, going all the way east along the lower ledge for a 
Tent before using the center bridge and stairs.

In this room you'll want to take the right path again and find a Steel Shield. 
There isn't anything else on this floor so you can loop around and take the 
staircase.

Here you'll want to go to the right at the top of the ladder, where there's a 
chest with 1000 gil. Another ladder to the left of here leads down and to a 
chest holding some Poison Knuckles. Finally, continue along the upper path for 
an Ether, a Save Point, and the southern exit.

Note that there's a room to the north of the Save Point where you can run into 
a rare Chimera enemy. It isn't much more difficult than other normal enemies, 
although you should watch out for its Aqua Breath attack and it seems to attack
more quickly than other enemies at this point. You can sometimes win a Small 
Tail from it, which can be traded for items later in the game.

When you leave the cave you'll be attacked by a Drake. This isn't a fight you 
can win, however, and you don't even need to deal any damage to it for the 
fight to end. You can steal a Hi-Potion from it if you have a Thief in your 
party.

Once you're back on the Overworld you can head south to the town of Deist and 
continue the story.

+-------+
| Deist |
+-------+

Items:   300 gil, Silver Bangle, Hi-Potion, Antidote, Drowsy Ring, 
         Abel's Spear, Golden Needle, Sleep Sword, Protect Bangle

When you walk in to town you'll have a short scene before you can explore. 
There are 3 pots outside holding 300 gil, a Silver Bangle and a Hi-Potion. For 
the first you need to head down towards the bottom of the screen through an 
unseen door, just to the right of the town entrance. A similar trick will get 
you the Silver Bangle, this time all the way to the right of the town. The 
Hi-Potion is found on the other side of the cave within the town, next to the 
boy. 

For the interior items, the Antidote is in Ricard's house; the Drowsy Ring is 
on the shelf near Ebba; and there is a Golden Needle in a pot in the house with
the old woman and family.

You'll notice in the short cave here that there is a chain similar to the one 
you pulled underneath Lux Castle. When you pull it another entrance will open 
further into the cave. A Mog here will tell you that there are dangerous 
monsters before recommending you come back after adventuring more -- I'll 
recommend the same, if not as much longer as the Mog might mean. The cave holds
one enemy, the Avenger, who is similar to the pesky Lil' Murderer from the 
Lunar Subterrane in FFIV, if you remember that. If you Libra it, it will show a
weakness to all elements. This is indeed a lie. If you use any element on it, 
it will cast the -aga level equivalent on you. It also counters general magic 
spells with a strong Bio spell, and physical attacks with a strong physical 
attack. Given how far you aren't into the game, this notably limits your 
options, but after some more exploration in this chapter you should be fine.

You need to talk to a few specific people here to progress the story: 
specifically Ricard in the house to the east, Ebba in the large house to the 
north, who will give you Abel's Spear, and possibly the father on the upper 
level to the east who mentions his son. After this you should have enough 
information for the next objective, a field to the west of Deist

+--------------------+
| Dragonweed Gardens |
+--------------------+

Once you enter the field west of Deist, you'll automatically be put into a 
scene and a mini-boss battle with some Avalonian troops.

Nothing out of the ordinary for this battle. The Ensigns can heal using Cura 
and the Lieutenant will attack more frequently than your party can, otherwise 
they don't hit harder than expected. You can steal some decent equipment if you
don't want to bother buying it, Tyrfings from the Ensigns and a Steel Armor 
from the Lieutenant, but don't drive yourself crazy. Once you're finished here 
you can proceed east of town towards where the dragons live.

+---------------+
| Dragon Valley |
+---------------+

Items:   Antidote, Phoenix Down, Ether, Hi-Potion, Bronze Armlet, Slasher, 
         Chainmail, Echo Grass

East of town is the Dragon Valley. You'll notice that the Drake is waiting for 
you at the entrance, but he won't attack you this time. After your party 
members have a quick chat you can access the valley itself.

Head up the stairs and ladder, moving to the east and down a second ladder for 
an Antidote. Going in the opposite direction and up the ladder will lead you to
the next area, clearly marked with some rocks along the path.

This is where you'll fight the Drake again! You still can't "win" the fight, 
but you do have to do some damage, so steal another Hi-Potion if you want and 
knock him around a bit before he flees. In the far southeast corner you can 
find a Phoenix Down. Opposite here, in the northwest, is a chest with an Ether.
The path will continue to the east from here.

In this new section, a chest lies slightly south of where you start containing 
a Hi-Potion. The path goes further east where you're given another choice of 
direction. Head south and pick up a Bronze Armlet before heading north into a 
new zone.

There are a few different levels here, and if you look closely you can see that
you can pass underneath one of the overhangs to the left. This leads to a dead 
end with a Slasher inside. Then you can go directly north from the entrance to 
the upper level, doubling back down the same overhang for another chest with 
some Chainmail and a southern exit.

Stay on top of the plateau in this area to find an Echo Grass before descending
the cliff. There's a Save Point here if you want it, but the "boss" battle 
coming up is another storyline battle rather than a legit fight.

In the next area you'll fight the same character you've seen stalking around 
recently. You can't beat her or steal anything, so just don't die for a few 
rounds. Proceed to the west again when you're done here.

A chest is not too far to the left here, with 500 gil inside. Walk all the way 
north down the path for a Dry Ether and then wind your way to the east and 
north to exit the valley.

+--------------+
| Dragon Roost |
+--------------+

Items:   Potion, Antidote, Halberd

The roost lies just northeast of the valley foothills. To progress the story 
you just have to talk to the mystery woman in the northern hut, but there are a
few items to find here, so make sure to look around some also. There's a Potion
inside the Mog's hut. After you've spoken with your new character, check the 
center pot for an Antidote. Note that you can also check the spear rack for a 
Halberd, which can be useful against flying enemies with its Wind element.
Once you've set off the next chain of events, you can choose to go right to the
final dungeon of this section, or to tackle a few optional quests first. This 
isn't really much of a choice, so let's get to it!

+---------------------+
| Cave of Fulmination |
+---------------------+

Items:   Phoenix Down, Magician's Hat, Thunder Rod, Ether, Remedy, X-Potion, 
         Man-Eater, Cat Claws

You'll find the cave just east of the Dragon Roost. This your first Eidolon 
quest. You'll start to notice a pattern of when these become available; as 
you've probably guessed or already know, you'll soon be playing as the Dark 
Warriors and alternate between the two parties. Each group will get an optional
Eidolon per section. These are normally decent spots, if not necessarily the 
best, to level your abilities up as well, so they can definitely be worth a 
little time.

When you enter the cave there will be a large hole in the middle, forcing you 
around the edge of the cavern. Go counter-clockwise all the way past the stairs
for a Phoenix Down before heading down to B2F.

A visible chest here has a Magician's Hat inside. There isn't any choice in 
pathways, so just go north and take the next set of stairs to B3F.

Here you'll be north of the chasm, separated entirely from the other side. 
There's a chest to the far left with a Thunder Rod (hint, hint) that you can 
get before taking the stairs back up to B2F. Along the left side of the chasm 
now, head down and snag a chest with an Ether. The stairs here will take you 
back down to B3F but on the southern side of the chasm. A Remedy is in the 
nearby chest. If you take the bridge to the right, at the southeast part of 
this floor is another chest and an X-Potion. Finally you can take the ladder 
down to B4F.

You'll see your goal here, the old man standing in the center of the chasm, but
you can't reach him yet. Continue down again to B5F. The ladder here will lead 
you under an overpass to a chest and a Man-Eater. The right side of the bottom 
level has a ladder heading up to a staircase taking you back to the other side 
of B4F. You can get the chest here with some Cat Claws before continuing on to 
the end of the cave. Reachable from the beginning of B5F before going down the 
first ladder, walk over the overpass and enter the room for a Save Point before
moving on.

Here you'll encounter the first Eidolon, Ramuh. He'll start the trend off by 
engaging you in battle to see if you're worthy of calling upon him.

*****
Ramuh
*****

This may be the first boss battle that you need to actually plan for. Ramuh 
attacks you by himself, and while he doesn't start off hitting very hard as the
battle goes on he'll begin to use the notably stronger Thunderbolt and Judgment
Bolt attacks on a single member or your entire party respectively. Definitely 
use a White Mage or Red Mage so that you can access Cura, and the strongest 
physical class you have. You can take your time at the beginning, but when he 
starts unleashing you'll need to close the deal pretty quickly before you get 
overwhelmed. Other useful strategies to keep in mind are that Slow frequently 
works on boss characters in this iteration of Final Fantasy, and you can cast 
defensive buffs on your entire party. Protect isn't as useful as Shell would 
be, but it doesn't hurt to absorb the random physical attacks Ramuh uses. You 
may also want to learn a few F-Abilities that are strong for this point in the 
game, such as Magic Bomb 2 (Fira + Cura). This will do more damage than some of 
your regular Job attacks, even when used by a physical attacker. Ramuh may not 
be weak against any elements but your Level 3 Black Magic (excluding Thundara) 
will be another main damage dealer here.

Once you beat him, he'll join your party as a Level 2 Eidolon for your Summoner
and you can leave the cave.

+-----------------+
| Chapter Cleanup |
+-----------------+

This is the last chance you have to do any extra work you want before the final
dungeon of the section. I'd recommend learning some F-Abilities on all of your 
characters so you have them in case the situation arises. In addition to Magic 
Missile, which you'll have already learned automatically, you can learn Magic 
Bomb, Magic Bomb 2, Nab Gil, Crescent Gale, and Thunder Slash without using any
Job Points. You can use the Red Mage to access both levels of magic that you 
need for the Magic Bombs. This basic idea will hold for other F-Abilities, 
also: if you have a physical class ability that is part of a F-Ability, just 
make the person the appropriate mage and stick the ability on. This way they 
won't have to level both jobs, and still can access the ability. This is useful
for getting some extra abilities on your physical class characters without 
having to sink JP into magic-based jobs. See F-Abilities Section for more 
details.

You can also go back to the cave inside of Deist and take on the Avengers to 
get some extra goodies. You'll run into Avengers randomly (and frequently) 
inside the cave, but they don't give you anything special so keep running away 
or using the Thief's Flee ability until you get to the first chest, which has 
an Avenger lurking inside.

The Avenger has 1500HP and absorbs all elements; in addition. On top of that, 
he counters every attack you make against him. Magical attacks result in a 
strong Bio counter and physical attacks in a strong physical blow. When you 
eventually kill him, he'll finish with a Quake counter against your entire 
party, so you'll need to have at a minimum the roughly 1000HP required to 
survive that attack with at least one character.

Since you can't use your mages to inflict damage, the only realistic means of 
damaging him are your Warrior, Monk, or Summoner. There are some benefits to 
both the physical and magical route. If you use the Summoner, you can attack 
him with Chocobo and have a White Mage queued up with a Cura for when you get 
hit with Bio. This isn't particularly graceful, but as long as you can keep 
your Summoner's life up, it'll get it done. If you feel adventurous you could 
use two Summoners and two White Mages, but keep in mind that they aren't known 
for their durability.

A more expedient and less risky method is to use a Warrior equipped with the 
Focus ability. Have a White Mage cast Protect and keep the team's health up 
while the Warrior is storing power, and when he attacks have a Cura on deck. 
This should do roughly 400HP damage compared to a Chocobo's 200, and the 
Warrior will have significantly more HP to take blow in this manner. You'll 
have enough time to heal up before he has another 3 Focus stocked up, so the 
only trick here is to survive the Quake.

When you beat the Avenger inside the first chest you'll get the Sleep Blade. 
Like in most other series entries, the probability of sending an enemy to sleep
before you kill them isn't all that great, but at least it's a bit stronger 
than some other weapons at this point.

Further in the cave is the second and only other chest. You'll have to run from
numerous Avengers on the way, and tackle another one inside this chest as well.
When you kill him off you'll get a Protect Bangle, which comes with Auto-
Protect equipped. It won't stay useful for a terribly long time compared to 
other status protections, but it's a good boost for one of your mages at this 
point.

Other than leveling up your Jobs, there isn't anything else to do around Geist 
so go back to the Dragon Roost and head north to the Highwind Tower so we can 
bring this story arc to an end.

+----------------+
| Highwind Tower |
+----------------+

Items:   Silver Hauberk, 2x Hi-Potion, 2x Golden Needle, Greatsword, 
         Magician's Robe, Mage's Staff, Echo Grass, Ether, Trident, Great Bow, 
         Tent, Elixir

There will be a scene when you walk up to the tower and you'll get your 5th 
party member for this section. You can't change her job, the Dragoon, otherwise
she functions like a regular party member. You also get 4 more JP to allocate 
to your team.

Once inside walk down the hallway to find a few locked doors. Not a brain-
melting puzzle here, flip the switch to your right to open the left door and 
then walk through the hidden passage to flip the next switch and open the main 
tower door. When you go up the levels of the tower you'll frequently get short 
scenes of what's happening at the top with the Empire.

2F has a chest immediately to your left with a Hi-Potion. Loop around clockwise
an exit the tower, getting a scene and climbing the ladder to 3F.
There isn't anything in the first room other than a fancy carpet so go forward 
and through the opening. The right split leads to a Golden Needle. The left 
will take you to the next staircase.

On the opposite side of where you enter 4F you'll find two rooms. The left and 
right doors take you to chests with a Greatsword and Golden Needle 
respectively. Once you're outside on this floor's terrace you can grab a 
Magician's Robe to your right before ascending the ladder and going back inside
on 5F.

The chest at the entrance has a Mage's Staff for you. There is a slight 
indentation on top of the carpet here which holds a Save Point, midway through 
the tower. The exit to the north puts you in a columned room with the stairs. 
Before taking them, double back down the left side for an Echo Grass.

Once on 6F you'll have to head downwards either right or left which will take 
you past two chests with an Ether and Hi-Potion. You get another terrace before
heading further up the tower.

Take a quick right here for a Trident before heading left through the columns. 
The staircase here takes you up to 8F. 

Following the path takes you to a Great Bow. You have to follow the path as it 
curves, so keep fighting your way through to the next room. This has a chest 
with a  conveniently placed Tent a Save Point. There's one more chest to get 
though, so I'd go outside onto the terrace and search along the left rampart 
for an Elixir and then head back inside to prep your party, heal and save.

Once you go up to the tower's rooftop you'll have another "boss" battle where 
you won't even input commands. After this there will be some more scenes
before you square of against one of the four Avalonian Generals, Vata of the
Wind.

****
Vata
****

It should be evident that Vata is a Wind element boss, which shouldn't be a 
real concern since the only possible Wind elements you could use are some of 
the Spears. He attacks fairly quickly, which you can counteract with Slow, and 
uses mainly physical attacks for the first half of the fight. When you get his 
HP down more he'll begin to use AoE wind attacks or Tornado on a single 
character, bringing their HP down to critical. Keep a healer on deck to keep 
your party from falling to these, otherwise just keep pummeling him. I found 
the Level 3 Black Magic and Magic Bomb 2 to be the best magical options, and if
you have a Warrior built up his Enrage makes for a good lead in to repeated 
Strikes. Monks are also useful with Aurablast, although they probably won't
have enough MP to use this the entire battle.

After the battle you'll get a number of scenes to close out the section, 
including obtaining the Dragoon Class and 5 JP for your team. Save and get 
ready to switch things around!


____________________________________________
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
World of Darkness: Second Sight   [ffd_ch2b]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You start back in the Crystal Temple with the other half of your characters. 
Wake up your knocked out companions, and when you try to leave through the 
broken wall the crystal shards will start shining. Now you can get the basic
Jobs for this group also, and you'll get 5 JP also.

Work your way down to the entrance again, making use of the healing pot as you
exit the Temple. You may want to level your new Jobs a bit since you can access
the pot here, but you may as well wait until you can get some more magic and
equipment at the first town you find.

You exit the Temple on a small piece of land with nothing to do but go north to
an abandoned ship. When you get on the Sunken Ship you can take the helm, but
go below deck first for some loot. In the left room are three chests with an 
Ether, Potion and Phoenix Down inside. The right room holds chests with an 
Antidote and 1500 gil. Now you have nothing left to do but set sail.

Not long after you head out into the ocean you'll be attacked by two Blood
Suckers. You don't have many attack options, so exploit their Lightning
weakness as much as possible. Afterwards, you'll lose control of the ship,
which will crash (again) on land. You still don't have any choice in where to
go from here, and will find yourself at a mountain path.

+-----------+
| Mt. Verde |
+-----------+

Items:   Tent, Bard's Tunic, x2 Eye Drops, Ether, Longsword, Oak Staff,
         Star Pendant, 500 gil
There is a Mog salesman at the entrance to the mountain if you want to stock up
on any supplies or get some new equipment. Take the first ladder up. To the 
left and down a ladder is a chest with a Tent. Further up the main path you'll
have some stairs leading to a bridge over to a platform. On top is a chest with
a Bard's Tunic. Slightly further up the path is a ladder leading down and under
this bridge, with another tall ladder heading to an entrance.

Mt. Verde: South is through this doorway. The path winds upwards with an alcove
holding some Eye Drops. Down from here is a ladder going up to another
platform. From here there is another ladder and a bridge. Take the bridge and
follow the path for an Ether. Now take the ladder and go through the entrance.

Once on the Summit, get the visible chest with a Longsword and go up as far as
possible. Your party will see Yggdrasil in the distance in a brief cutscene.
Continue on and start descending along the other side.

Mt. Verde: North starts with a ladder down and then a split between a second
ladder down and a path around. Take the second ladder to find an Oak Staff,
then backtrack and walk along the plateau to some bridges. Along the right
bridge is a Star Pendant. The southern bridge leads to a path that will go
down and wind to another entrance.

Take the path through this section all the way to the end and get a Battleaxe.
Now climb down the ladder you passed and go as far down as possible. In a small
nook all the way down is a chest with some more Eye Drops. Continuing on will
be a similar alcove to the north with 500 gil. Then you can stay the course to
get off the mountain.

A town will be nearby along a river, to the south of a large forest. This will
be your gateway into the forest. Before you head in, follow the river to the
west to find a Chocobo Forest, which will enable you to learn the Chocobo
summon for this set of warriors.

+-------+
| Verde |
+-------+

Items: Ether, 150 gil, 200 gil, Eye Drops, Hi-Potion, Golden Needle

Outside, you can find items in the upper pot in the southwest, the pot in the 
fenced area behding the large northern house. Inside this large house, go 
upstairs and check the shelf for 200 gil. Take the back stairs down and get the
Eye Drops in the pot. In the right house there is a Hi-Potion in the upper left
barrel and a Golden Needle in the lower right box.

Talk to the townspeople to get an idea of what's happening in the area. A boy
mentions a code he learned, which is East - North - West - North. They'll also
mention the Mazewood to the north, and a crazy old man living in a hut nearby.
Clearly if there's a crazy old man, we need to go meet him!

+------------+
| Forest Hut |
+------------+

Items:   Maiden's Kiss.

There isn't actually anything required here, but you can get a few items and a
funny optional scene. The barrel behind the house has a Maiden's Kiss in it. I
don't have a clue why there are frogs everywhere, maybe it's to build the 
naturalist feel of the Ranger section? Inside, if you check the bookshelf
you'll find a porn magazine which Alba and Nacht.... discuss.

Once you're ready to move on, head into the Mazewood by taking the northern 
exit from Verde.

+----------+
| Mazewood |
+----------+

Items:   Bandana, 1000 gil, 800 gil, Slasher, Chainmail, Hi-Potion, 
         Orichalcum, Sacred Candle, Steel Shield, 1500 gil

Enter the woods, and not too far from the entrance you'll be attacked by two
Scouts from Avalon. You can steal a Steel Helm from them if you have a Thief
with you. Then you're free to progress through the woods.

Given the name, the areas here can look pretty similar, so try to keep a map
going in your head. Head left at first for a chest with a Bandana near a pond.
Another left brings you to a chest with 1000 gil. One more left will bring you
back to the first screen, a little further up. Walk past the path leading north
and grab the chest for 800 gil.

Up the north path you'll find a Save Point. This is the part where the Mazewood
becomes the typical maze with only one correct path. Head east from the Save
Point, then north, west, and north again. This will bring you to a cutscene
where you meet crazypants around a campfire. Once you have control again, head
further north and deeper into the forest.

The first path left here leads to a Slasher. I don't normally like Axes because
of their lower ACC rating, but this is strong against plants, which is good
given the circumstances. All the way up this main north-south path is a chest
with some Chainmail. The middle path leads to another screen change.

There is a chest here with a Hi-Potion in it, but nothing else. Continue on.

Here you'll find a Save Point and a chest holding an Orichalcum. To the left is
an empty room, similar to the one in the Cave to Deist. The rare monster here
is the Torosaurus. It can hit your party pretty hard and quickly in addition to
a Roar attack that will stun the group, and he starts the battle by casting
Reflect. Prepare appropriately with physical characters and Summoners, who
aren't affected by Reflect, if you want to take him on now.

When you head north from the Save Point, the screen will start to repeat. Do
this a few times and then head south again. There will be a beast there now.
Inspect it to trigger a cutscene which lands the old crazypants, Gramps, in
your party as a Ranger. He will also find you a path to go through to the
north.

In this new screen, check the chest towards the lower left for a Sacred Candle.
Take the left exit for a chest with a Steel Shield. Follow the upper path from
here through an empty screen to a new area with a chest over a bridge. It holds
1500 gil.

Heading south from here will take you back to the main screen after the last
Save Point. You can also get to this screen by heading west from the Steel
Shield chest. Either way you take, head to the northeast exit and cross a
short bridge to exit the forest.

Just north of here is another town and Yggdrasil, the World Tree. You can also
find a Chocobo Forest to the far northwest, and an Eidolon cave west of town.
For now, let's explore the town to beef up on equipment before adventuring.

+---------+
| Alfheim |
+---------+

Items:   10 gil, Maiden's Kiss, Hi-Potion, Eye Drops, Ether, Echo Grass

Items outside can be found in the right crate above the Inn (10 gil), the 
barrel next to the Item Shop (Maiden's Kiss), and the bush near the flower
field in the northwest (Echo Grass). Yes, you can even find items in bushes in
this game! Inside the Item Shop, search the pot for a Hi-Potion. The Weapon
Shop has some Eye Drops inside, and the house west of the Weapon Shop has a pot
with an Ether also.

Make sure to get your Level 3 Magic here, as well as any equipment you want.
When you're ready to move on, head north to the Yggdrasil: Base. A cutscene
here will reveal that the Elves want nothing to do with you *humans* and you'll
have to find another way in. Gramps suggests the mountains to the northeast.

+-------------------+
| Cave to Yggdrasil |
+-------------------+

Items:   2x Eye Drops, Silver Bangle, Antidote, Dry Ether, Tamer's Whip,
         Man-Eater, Sacred Candle, Tent, Bronze Armlet

When you enter the field space in front of the mountains, there will be a short
cutscene where Gramps opens the pathway into the mountain.

Head left from the entrance and then up to get some Eye Drops. Go down the
ladder and through the opening. Wave around the path here to get to the other
side of the chasm, where you can pick up a Silver Bangle. Another opening is
just south of the chest. This will put you in sight of another chest, this one
holding an Antidote. Cross the bridge for a Dry Ether. Continue along the path
now and double back along the chasm to get a Tamer's Whip before moving on.

Follow the path past the two ladders. When the path splits, take the right path
all the way down until you're level with the chest. You can see a gap in the
wall here, where there isn't shadow. Walk through to grab the chest and a 
Man-Eater. Further down, take the right path and cross the bridge for a
Sacred Candle. The passage on is to the left.

There's another gap in the wall in this screen, to the right. Passing through
will get you a Tent. Head left now, taking the side paths to get a Bronze
Armlet and some more Eye Drops. At the bottom of the screen you'll see a tiny
cave with a Save Point. You can see the mini-boss from here, so go and make use
of it first.

The fight with the Green Keeper is pretty straight forward. He's susceptible to
Slow, but will use Haste once you've whittled his HP down a bit. He can also
heal himself, so make sure you don't spend too much time on buffs and let him
recover a lot.

Once you kill him, head up and out of the cave into Yggdrasil itself.

+-----------+
| Yggdrasil |
+-----------+

Items:   Mage's Staff, Golden Needle, Echo Grass

You start on the Lower Level of the World Tree. Follow the path and into the
next screen where you can choose a path. Don't take the first entrance you see.
Go down and around to find two more to the right. The left of these two has a
chest with Mage's Staff. The right of these two hides a Golden Needle and Echo
Grass.

In the main room here, you can head south to access the main entrance to
Yggdrasil leading into Alfheim. This is useful for obvious reasons, but also so
you can go to the optional cave outside town for an extra Eidolon. Let's do
this now before going any further up the tree.

+--------------------+
| Cave of Convulsion |
+--------------------+

Items:   Hi-Potion, Large Shield, Trident, Phoenix Down, Greatsword, Tent

This cave is fun! It's not a straight forward affair, and you'll have to
explore a bit to find everything. Right when you walk into the main
intersection an earthquake will happen and you'll fall to the bottom level of
the cave. There are two paths out of this room. The first will lead you back to
the surface, and the second will lead you to Titan. I'll take the first, since
it's shorter, and you won't need to come back this way after you beat Titan.

Take the upper right staircase to get back to B2F. Loop around here and get the
chest with a Hi-Potion in it. The stairs here will bring you up to B1F, and the
immediately visible stairs here up further to 1F. Here you'll cross the area of
the earthquake. The left path leads to a Large Shield, and you can head south
to the cave's entrance at this point. There isn't anything else along this 
route, so you can save outside if you want and head back to the bottom level.

This time, walk around the ledge along the bottom of the screen and it will 
lead to another path. Going up here will score you a Trident. It also leads to
a frog, which (for whatever reason) triggers another mini-earthquake. This will
open up a new path allowing you to continue to a set of stairs in the northeast
corner.

In this part of B2F, stay along the path and examine the chest. A quake will
drop you back down one level. Here you can open the chest for some Silver
Spectacles. The cave here will lead out near the stairs you had just taken.
Once you're back on B2F, continue past where the chest initially was. A frog
will be waiting on the path down to the bottom of the screen. He will run
when you approach him, but you don't have to chase him, just find him at his
new location further north in a western alcove. This opens up a new path
across the chasm. A chest is to the upper right here with a Phoenix Down. The
stairs are more to the left.

On B1F you can find a chest near the stairs holding a Greatsword. The frog will
also be near here, standing by some stairs leading into an underground lake.
Follow the frog in and catch him to open a new path. Along this you'll find a
Tent. Continue on for the stairs and a Save Point.

When you're ready, move on to see a frog with Titan. Talking to them will
trigger the Eidolon battle.

*****
Titan
*****

This is similar to the Ramuh fight. Titan has Earthquake attacks that will hit
the whole party, and he can hit individual characters for decent damage. He is
also susceptible to Slow, which is helpful, as is using Protect on your party.
He's stronger against physical attacks than magical ones, so make sure your
melee characters are using their strongest attacks. Since you just started
building this team, that's probably similar to what they were against Ramuh:
Strike comes to mind, but even this won't do great damage. Magic Bomb 2 is
good, as are the -ara spells. Gramps' Precise Shot isn't overly powerful, but
it is consistent at least. You may consider changing your base party
composition in favor of more mages for this battle, since you'll need them to
heal and for damage output. When he starts to run low on HP he'll bring out
Gaia's Wrath, so keep spamming your attacks to kill him.

Once you do, you'll get the Titan summon and be able to leave the cave through
the back entrance. At this point, the only thing left to do is grind if you
want and then storm Yggdrasil. Let's get to it!

+-----------+
| Yggdrasil |
+-----------+

Items:   3x Ether, Magician's Hat, Magician's Robe, Sallet, Sacred Candle,
         Remedy, Phoenix Down, Elixir

We're back! Head into the second entrance from the left (the only one you
haven't yet) to find another Green Keeper. Take him out and head up to the
Middle Level.

Take the left doorway here. It will lead outside the tree, and further along to
another entrance back in. The chest in this room has an Ether. The right
passage doesn't lead to anything other than a view of a chest. Take the left
passage and follow it until you enter a large room with a staircase. This is
the room you entered in, on the other side. Ignore the stairs for now and head
up the left side. You can walk through the wall here above the glowing flower
to get a Magician's hat. Do the same on the opposite side of the room for a 
Magician's Robe.

Head through the middle right door, which will eventually loop back to the
entrance and the other passageway. Take the chest here with a Hi-Potion. The
door near the chest leads outside and to a Sallet. The lower door here leads to
a room with a chain in the wall. Pull it to access the stairs in the main room.

Up the stairs you'll have a short scene. A chest nearby has a Sacred Candle in
it. Take this set of stairs to reach the Upper Level.

There is a third Green Keeper here guarding the Tree. Word on the internetz is
that this one is harder than the other two - I didn't see this personally, but
it may help to not slow him, as this may trigger a Haste counter. Just keep
blasting him with Fira, Strike, Magic Bomb 2, and healing when necessary. As
always, level up if you can't win, or change your party to have more damage
output.

Follow the path along the left to find a Remedy. Then loop around the right 
and through the entranceway. Head up the short staircase here to get a Great
Bow for Elgo. Take the left door here, and then the left vine ladder up as far
as you can for two chests with an Ether and a Phoenix Down. If you double back
and climb the right vine ladder, it leads up and outside to an Elixir.

Back down, take the right door this time. Up the middle vine is a Linen
Cuirass. Next take the left vine to get some Cat Claws. Finally take the right
vine to progress up and to the Top level.

Don't go through the columns towards the Elves yet. The left path goes outside
where there's a chest with another Ether, and the right path goes outside to a
Save Point. Once you've healed and prepared, go towards the guards for a short
scene and then up to the apex of Yggdrasil.

There will be some longer scenes here before you're attacked by another of the
Avalonian Generals, Asmodai of the Earth. You'll have two plot-based battles
before you can actually fight him.

*******
Asmodai
*******

Asmodais is clearly of the magical class, so don't worry about buffing with
Protect. Slow also won't work on him. He has some strong AoE attacks which
you'll need to be prepared to heal from. Luckily, he isn't predisposed to take
less damage from magic attacks, so you can make use of your -ara spells and
magic F-Abilities. He also uses a lot of status attacks with the Miasma attack
so you may have to fend off some paralysis and confusion. I didn't bother
curing Poison, since he reapplies it so often.

He's weak against wind, which isn't the most accessible element to attack with,
but if you're using a Warrior you can equip one of the Spears that comes with
Wind attached. Other than these specific tactics, use whatever Abilities you've
learned that will buff your characters and lay on the hurt. STR +20% and
HP +20% are good passives at this point, the Warrior's Enrage is good before
spamming Strike, and the Monk's Aurablast does decent damage. Summoners may not
be as useful here because of their atrocious speed deficiency and lack of
strong Eidolons besides Titan, which won't help here. Like most bosses, he'll 
get nastier when he's close to dying, but it shouldn't be a terribly difficult
battle, if frustrating with the continuous status ailments.

Once you beat him there will be some more scenes with the Elf royalty before
you gain the Ranger Job and 5 JP for the party. And that's the end of this
section!


__________________________________________________
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
World of Light: An Enchanting Reverie   [ffd_ch2c]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You'll start off in Deist and have a few conversations before being flown to a
new part of the world. There's a port town nearby that you can go to to access
their ships. You can also start using the Dragoon class now.

+------+
| Capo |
+------+

Items:   Echo Grass, Ether, Hi-Potion, Potion, Eye Drops, Tent

The crate in the lower right of town has an Echo Grass. There is also an Ether
in the pot near the bar, a Hi-Potion in the barrel near the Item Shop, and a
Potion in the right crate along the northern edge of town. In the lower right
house you can find some Eye Drops in a pot. In the large house with the old
couple, the lower right shelf has a Tent.

You'll notice a glowing spot in town near the entrance. If you inspect it, you
can open a rift to go back to the area you explored in the Dragoon section.
This lets you go back to explore anything you may have forgotten long before
you get your eventual airship.

Talking around town will show that the shipyard can't be used because of some
pirates blocking the port. You can find them in the bar to start a battle
against a group of them. After this, talk to the pirate by the dock to be taken
to meet their leader.

+---------------+
| Pirate Island |
+---------------+

Items:   Mythril Bangle, Echo Grass, 1000 gil

Once you're here you have to head through the cave to talk to the pirate
captain. There is a healing pot and a Save Point before you move forward if you
need to use it.

Follow the path around through the first floor. Don't take the top stairs yet,
and keep going to find another set further down. This leads to a single room
with a Mythril Bangle. Then head back to the first set of stairs.

Take them and head left. A doorway in the top of the wall leads to two chests,
with an Echo Grass and 1000 gil. Continue along the main path and look for a
partially hidden passage to the south. Through this, weave right for a Green
Beret before climbing down the ladder.

Follow this path around the screen until you reach another passage. There
aren't any chests or anything to find here before continuing on.

+----------------+
| Pirate Hideout |
+----------------+

Items:   Mallet, Hi-Potion, Eye Drops, Ether

The hideout has an Item Shop and an Inn if you want to use them. You can also
find a Mallet in the lower right barrel in the Inn, a Hi-Potion in the barrel
along the north wall, some Eye Drops in a barrel in the passage after there and
an Ether in the final room with a pirate in it.

Talk to this pirate, the captain Bikke, to get some oblique information and
start a fight against him, under someone else's orders.

*****
Bikke
*****

Before you start the fight against Bikke you have to fight off four Pirates.
They're similar to the ones you fought in Capo, except this time they'll attack
from behind. After you kill them you'll fight Bikke himself.

The battle starts with Bikke alone, but as you fight longer he'll call more 
Pirates in groups of two to support him. Each time I fought him he called two
sets of two Pirates before I killed him, so he may keep calling them as long
as you haven't killed him off. Keep your HP up, but other than hitting the
group with several attacks there isn't too much to this. You can use Slow and
Protect if you need to buff your party.

Once you beat the pirate captain, you'll earn his allegiance and 3 JP to boot.
Head back to the docks and choose to sail to Rusalka.

+---------+
| Rusalka |
+---------+

Items:   Tent, 4000 gil, Maiden's Kiss, Antidote, Sacred Candle, Hi-Potion,
         Ether, Mallet

Once you arrive in Rusalka, you can still speak to Bikke if you want to return
to either Capo or the Pirate Hideout. For now, explore around town and talk to
people to learn what's happening with Eduardo, the Bard. You'll have to speak
to the townspeople and then the bartender before you're allowed out of town.

In the meantime, let's find some items, too! There is a Tent right near Bikke
in the pot between two crates. In the main town, there is a chest partially
hidden along the river. You can cross under the bridge to get to it and find
4000 gil. The pot in the north alley holds a Maiden's Kiss and the upper pot in
the far northeast has an Antidote. The barrel beside the Inn has a Sacred
Candle inside. Inside houses, you can get a Hi-Potion in the upper left house's
pot. The middle pot along the wall inside the Inn has an Ether. Inside the bar,
the upper right barrel contains a Mallet.

Check out the equipment stores, particularly the magic store, which has Level 4
spells. After that (and speaking with the bartender), you can head out of town
and head to the Empire base on top of the mountain to the northeast.

+-------------+
| Mt. Rusalka |
+-------------+

Items:   Eye Drops, Hi-Potion, Remedy, Mythril Armlet, Ether

Lots of mountains in this game so far. Time to get started.

Head up the mountain and around to the left, up the first few ladders to a
door. When you enter the mountain, head along the path with a pitstop for the
chest, holding some Eye Drops.

Once outside again in Station 3, head up and follow the left set of ladders.
The right path leads to a dead end. Once you go up as far as you can and enter
the mountain again, head up the short branch to find a chest with a Hi-Potion.
Then head right and down the ladder to get a Remedy from the blocked off
barrel. Back up the ladder you can take the stairs to Station 6.

Down the right corridor of this room is a Mythril Armlet. When you walk
outside, the nearby chest has an Ether. To the right and up the long ladder,
you can skirt a bridge to pick up a Mythril Spear. To the left is another door
heading inside to Station 8. There isn't anything in this section, so just
follow the path around until you reach the Summit.

Up the staircase on the summit is a chest with a Cottage. There is also a Save
Point to the left, before you go back inside. Once you do, you'll find an
Avalon soldier who will pull a Baigan and attack once you talk to him.

The Weresoldier hits harder than most so far, and faster. Protect will minimize
the physical damage as much as possible. You may have some more F-Abilities at
this point if you've been leveling your Jobs up, or starting to use a variety.
Boost Jump is good if you have that, otherwise stick with the regular buffs
(Protect, Enrage, passive stat boosts) and don't let your healers fall.

After you've killed the soldier, return to town to plan your next actions.

+---------+
| Rusalka |
+---------+

When you're in town, talk to the bartender again and follow his advice to go
rest up at the Inn. A nighttime scene will happen and Sol will give you a hint
as to where you need to go in town.

+----------------+
| Rusalka Sewers |
+----------------+

Items:   Hi-Potion, Elixir, Silver Spectacle

Once you're in the sewers, for obvious reasons you won't be able to use most of
your abilities or Jobs since you're stuck in Frog form. The enemies won't give
gil or AP and all you can do it attack, so keep some Potions on deck in case
you run low on HP. 

As you're going through the mostly linear path, you can talk to a few frogs as
you pass them and pick up a few chests. The first is up out of the water to the
north and has a Hi-Potion. Soon after there is a platform raised out of the
water with an Elixir. In the small entrance northwest of this platform is
another room with a Silver Spectacle. Continue down and loop to the right to
find Eduardo. You'll gain another 3 JP when he joins your party.

You have to walk out the same way, but Eduardo's Harp attacks will do more
damage than your team's. Once you're back in human form, head to the forest
north of Mt. Rusalka.

+-------------------+
| Forest of the Fey |
+-------------------+

Items:   Mythril Axe, Hi-Potion, Potion, Lightning Bow, Remedy

When you enter the forest, start by heading to the left and up to find a
Mythril Axe. Then go back and along the right. When you get to a cross section,
go left a short ways to find a Hi-Potion. Then head up the right side of the
forest to find a Potion. The exit to the screen is in the upper left.

This small area has a Save Point and two exits. To move the story along, take
the left exit up. There will be a short scene and a fight against three Vortex
enemies. They're normal enemies so nothing special to deal with. Afterwards
you'll get a Bottle of Bubbly Water, which will allow you to access the
Underwater Temple.

Taking the right path from the Save Point, make a counter-clockwise loop and
pick up a Lightning Bow. From the start you can go a bit left and up to get a
Remedy. Now you can follow the path along the left and around. There is a Mog
here, but he doesn't have anything for sale.

At this point, you can go to the Underwater Temple and close out the section.
There is also an Eidolon to be found near the Forest of the Fey, along the
mountain ridge to the west. There's a Chocobo Forest further north if you want
a quick heal.

+--------------+
| Glacial Cave |
+--------------+

Items:   Echo Grass, Phoenix Down, Cleric's Staff, Ether, Hi-Potion, 
         Golden Needle, Kris, Cleric's Hat, Cottage, Prism Rod,

Ice Cave! Keep your Fire magic handy.

To the right is an Echo Grass. Up from the entrance, go back down the left
stairs for a Phoenix Down. Then head over the bridge and around to get to the
door. This leads to a short room and some stairs down to B1F.

Head towards the stairs you can see from the start. It leads back up to 1F and
a new platform with a Cleric's Staff in it. Back at the main path, use the
ladder to the left to get on a platform in the middle of the lake. Two chests
here hold an Ether and a Hi-Potion. Loop around and go across the large bridge
to proceed, using the stairs in the next room to go down again.

On B2F head up and take the bridge to the right. Follow it around and climb
the ladder to find a Golden Needle. Head down next. To the right is another
ladder going to the other chest you'd seen. It holds a Kris. You can't reach
the last chest yet, along the north wall. Continue down the southern stairs.

Continue again to reach B4F. The chest down the first ladder has a Cleric's Hat
in it. Once you go down the next level, head up along the right. The chest
here has a Cottage inside. The ladder in the middle leads you on, after a bit
of walking around the ledge.

B5F has a large frozen lake once you descend the first ladder. Don't waste your
time tryingt to "solve" this puzzle, since you can't yet. Keep going down and
into the room where you'll get a Save Point. In the next room, you face the ice
Eidolon, Shiva.

*****
Shiva
*****

It should go without saying that you should lay on as much Fire damage as
possible. Fira will do more damage here than Magic Bomb 2. The battle will be
slightly easier with Eduardo, who can buff your party a bit, and he also helps
as another target. Shiva uses Blizzara against individual characters and the
party also and will bring out Diamond Dust when she's been weakened, a more
powerful AoE attack. She will also use Blizzara on herself to heal for about
500 HP and increase her Magic attack for a period of time.

You can prevent this if you have a Red Mage with Attune Blade, which acts like
FF VI's Celes' Runic ability. When you use it, the next magic spell cast will
be absorbed by that character and recover some MP. It only stays active for the
duration of the character's turn, which means you'll have to reuse it if no
spell is cast within that turn. It also means you can't use your own spells,
particularly healing spells. But if you time it so that your mage(s) cast their
Fira/Cura spells first and then you use Attune Blade, you can prevent Shiva
from using the majority of her ice-based attacks.

Similar to other bosses and Eidolons, Shiva will start hitting harder when
she's almost dead. Keep the Fire damage on as much as possible, and possibly
add another mage if you need more healing power.

When you beat her, you'll gain her as a L3 Summon. The ice in the cave will
also start flowing, which means you can get a few more chests on your way out.

Just above the room where you fought Shiva, you can now walk through the lake
and grab the chest with a Prism Rod. The waterfall here hides a secret door.
When you walk back through it, you find another chest and a Brigandine. Head up
a level, and now you can walk back through the waterfall at the top of the
screen to pick up a Partisan.

Now that you have all the treasure here, finish any leveling you want to do or
equipment you want to get and head back to Rusalka. When you approach the
bubbles in the water by the pirate ship, it will prompt you to descend into
the Underwater Temple.

+-------------------+
| Underwater Temple |
+-------------------+

Items:   Coral Sword, Tower Shield, Dream Harp, Mallet, Hell Claws, Cottage,
         Barbut, X-Potion, Dry Ether, Pinwheel

Almost everything here is weak against Lightning. It's fun to see the element
tropes coming back full force. Keep it in mind as you're going through the
temple. You start out falling to the bottom and have to climb your way back up.

Head north from where you land through the next screen. Stay along the middle
path to get a chest with a Coral Sword, which conveniently comes with the
Lightning element attached. Then take the left stairs to go up a floor to a
single room with a Tower Shield. The right path from the original room will
lead you on.

At the bottom of this section of 5F is a chest just off the path and a Dream
Harp. As you probably saw when you entered the room, as you go up the narrow
path you'll find a guardian similar to the Green Keeper in Yggdrasil. The
Nereid isn't weak technically a water elemental, thus not weak against
Lightning, but also shouldn't pose a problem.

After beating the Nereid you'll find a mermaid whom you have to talk with to
clear the path. Head into the next room and up to 5F. The pot right here has a
Mallet in it. Go to the bottom of the screen and double back up the left side,
where a chest is with some Hell Claws for your monk. The pot nearby has a
Cottage. Another Nereid is visible as well, towards the bottom of the screen.
Once beaten, go up and past another mermaid to reach a mid-dungeon Save Point.
When you go up, there are stairs leading up to 3F as well as a room behind
them. This room has the rare Aqua Rex monster which will sometimes drop Large
Fangs.

On the next floor, take the left branch and the stairs for Barbut. The right
branch is similar but holds an X-Potion. At the bottom of the main screen is
a third Nereid. Once killed you meet another mermaid and some stairs up to 2F.

This floor isn't submerged for some reason. Your characters mention that it's
lit differently. Take the cue and pick up each of three candles, placing them
in the blank wall to the north. This will open up the passage way further down.
Yet another Nereid is waiting for you here. As you speak with the final mermaid
and go up the stairs you will learn a bit more of the underlying story here.

on 1F, two rooms wait along the north wall. The western one contains a Dry
Ether and the eastern a Pinwheel. Then you can find another Save Point and
prepare yourself.

The next room will have some scenes with the mermaid, Edna, before an
Avalonian General comes to fight you, Styx of the Water.

****
Styx
****

Throw out your best Lightning attacks here. Someone with the Coral Sword can do
great damage without any spell delay. Ramuh and Thundara are always good to
fall back on. The weakest link is definitely Eduardo, but put him to work with
offensive buffs and healing as appropriate. Styx will use Water attacks against
individuals and with AoE attacks, pulling out more damage as you go. But your
Lightning attacks can really wreak some havoc against this weakness, so it
didn't feel as close a fight as some of the earlier bosses did.

When you do beat her, there will be a bunch of scenes and you'll acquire the
Bard Job and 5 JP. You have to physically leave the temple by using the portal,
which will trigger some more scenes. A story boss battle will commence which
doesn't last very long. After this, you'll have some more scenes with a new
character and then move back to Alfheim and your other characters.

World of Dark: A Blessing in Disguise   [ffd_ch2d]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Once you start off you'll have a few scenes and the Elf Queen will give you a
letter for the Dwarven leader to ask for his help on your behalf. Then you will
be transported (by hawk!) to a new land. It drops you off in a forest nearby a
town, which will be your first stop.

+--------+
| Kurgis |
+--------+

Items:   Hi-Potion, Ether, 500 gil, Phoenix Down, Antidote

Explore town to hear about the Dwarf village through the forest. Apparently
this part of the world gets all the different races. You can also find some
items lying around. The lower crate near the Magic shop has a Hi-Potion. The
upper barrel by the Inn holds an Ether. The pot behind the house west of the
Magic shop has 500 gil. Inside houses, the pot in the Inn has a Phoenix Down
and the house east of the Magic shop has an Antidote in the right shelf.

Once you're done, head to the nearby forest.

+-----------+
| Umberwood |
+-----------+

Items:   2000 gil, Mythril Armlet, Ether, Phoenix Down, Hi-Potion, Gaia Gear,
         Remedy, Mythril Knife, Sacred Candle, Cottage, X-Potion

For whatever reason I found this forest actually a little tougher than the
previous dungeons. Maybe I didn't have a good Job setup, but maybe you should
bring some extra potions or ethers in case.

From the start, head left a short ways and get 2000 gil. Back to the right, go
all the way into the next screen to get a chest with a Mythril Armlet. From
the split where you continued right, head up and a bit down to get the visible
chest with an Ether. Further up along the right is a Phoenix Down across a
bridge. Now head to the left for a short scene with a mysterious character.
You'll have a few of these as you pass through the woods. Continue to the left.

Head to the left here and make a loop down and back right to find a Hi-Potion.
The southern branch here heads to a new screen with a Gaia Gear in the chest.
Take the remaining branch from this part up and then to the left. This is
another new screen with a single chest, a Remedy. Back on the main path, head
right and up past another short scene.

You'll have a few path choices here when you come to the bridges. Take the
right bridge first. Continue right to the new screen, which doubles back below
the entrance, leading to a chest that you couldn't reach before. It holds a
Mythril Knife. Back at the bridges, go up along the grass path to get a
Sacred Candle. Then take the left bridge, which holds a Cottage just to the
south and then leads north.

Go north along the west line to get an X-Potion. Then trail the path along the
east, going all the way north, for a final short scene before you exit the
forest. The Dwarf village is not far to the north of here.

+------+
| Aule |
+------+

Items:   Phoenix Down, Remedy, Sacred Candle, Ether, Antidote, Hi-Potion,
         4000 gil

You'll receive a similarly unpleasant welcome here as you did in the Elf
village of Alfheim. You can't do anything until you give the Elf Queen's
missive to the Dwarven leader, so head to the large house in the north and
speak with him. He will tell you about a cave to the east leading to a castle
ruined by the Empire which you should search next. It will also open up the
town for conversation and shopping.

For items, search the northweatern barrel for a Phoenix Down and the pot south
of the Item Shop for a Remedy, Inside the armory-type building to the east you
can pick up a Sacred Candle in the left barrel, an Ether in the middle
accessible pot, and an Antidote in the left one. Inside the Dwarven chief's
house is 4000 gil in the lower left pot. The bar has a Hi-Potion in the lower
right barrel.

Once you're done in town grind outside as much as you'd like and make note of
the Chocobo Forest to the southeast if you want to heal there. Then head to
the cave The Dwarven chief mentioned, which he will have granted you access to.

+---------------+
| Cave of Dread |
+---------------+

Items:   Hi-Potion, Echo Grass, Cottage, Mythril Spear,
         Phoenix Down, Dark Sword

When you approach the cave you'll talk with a Dwarf who will let you by. The
main thing to know about this cave before hand is that several of the enemies
can only be killed by finishing them off with a magical attack. While this may
seem like building a team of mages will be easier, you can still damage them
using melee fighters, so I played through it with a regular party split with
physical and magical fighters. Also note that the mosnter will revive itself if
killed with a physical attack, but not to full life. This lets you finish the
job with a mage. Monsters that function like this are the Death Crawler, 
Outcast, and Cruller.

Head inside and to the southeast to pick up some ore, which is visible on the
screen. The kind you get is randmo as far as I can tell, and you can find 
Pebbles, Mithril Ore, or Iron Ore at this point. You won't be able to do
anything with them now. There is also a chest with Hi-Potion. Head north and
down the ladder to pick up a Pebble (visible). Follow the path for a chest with
an Echo Grass. Up the stairs you'll find a pass to the next screen.

On this path, head straight forward to find a healing pot. Yes, in the middle
of the cave. Guess the designers didn't want to be TOO rough on you. To the
left you can pick up a Cottage. Heal if you want before heading right. A ladder
here will take you up and around, leading to a Mythril Spear when you descend
again. Up the next ladder will be another passageway.

A chest will be visible to your left, holding a Phoenix Down. Follow the ledge
around and duck in the door to use a Save Point if you want. Down the ladder
and in the far corner is a Dark Sword, which you can't equip yet. There will be
a boss here, so prepare yourself.

************
Hecatoncheir
************

This guy is kinda a pain. He has 12 arms, and will attack you three times each
physical attack. He also hits hard, so Protect is highly useful. A strong
physical attack, Whack, can also Confuse your character. He has a Quake AoE
attack which can do 400+ damage, and most annoying of all is Curse Breath. You
may be tempted to let Curse status sit since he'll likely inflict it again but
this will severely impede your ability to do any actual damage. Staple attacks
like Magic Bomb 2 and Strike will do perfectly fine damage, but not if you're
under the effects of Curse. You may want to stock extra Sacred Candles. I also
found Bio from the L4 Black Magic set to be helpful. either due to its Dark
element or general strength compared to the -ara spells.

It may pay off to keep your mages free of Curse and use your physical attackers
to heal here, since you can use your MP to dish out significant damage. I also
noticed elemental bows doing significantly less damage than knives on my Thief,
irregardless of comparative ATK power.

When you deplete his HP he will Regenerate like the other monsters in the cave.
If you kill him again (with either kind of attack), he'll use Hyper Regenerate,
which triggers a story battle involving the mysterious character from the
Umberwood. You still have to fight the boss though, taking down all his HP
again, so make use of his Dark Blade attacks, particularly Darkness to start
dealing some heavy damage.

Once you (finally) kill him, the Dark Knight Graham will join your group and
you'll receive 3 JP for the party. I'd recommend saving again, and possibly
healing via a tent. Heading through the northern exit brings you onto 
Mt. Falgabard, another dungeon with a seemingly high encounter rate.

+---------------+
| Mt. Falgabard |
+---------------+

Items:   X-Potion, Echo Grass, Dry Ether, Hi-Potion, Hell Claws, Ether, Remedy

The path here winds for a while before bringing you up to a ledge near the
chest you've seen for a while. Step west and open it for an X-Potion. When you
reach some stairs soon after, step west again to pick up an Echo Grass. Then
walk up the short stairs and north.

Use the ladder here for a Dry Ether. The next ladder down leads to a Hi-Potion.
Continue climbing the ladders up until you see a bridge to your left. Across it
are some Hell Claws. Then continue north again. 

A short scene will occur talking about the history of the Falgabard kingdom.
Once finished you can go right and climb the short ladder for an Ether. To the
left there is a ladder up to a ledge with a Remedy. Take the next ladder down
and follow the path far up. Keep following the ladders until you exit the
cliffs in front of Castle Falgabard.

+------------------+
| Castle Falgabard |
+------------------+

Items:   Elixir, Cleric's Hat, Ether, Justaucorps, X-Potion, Barburt

When you walk in you'll notice the obvious bombed-out state of the castle. An
Eidolon-hinting Mog is nearby, and you can find a number of ghosts to talk with
throughout the ruins. If you head up to the ramparts and into the east tower,
you can go upstairs and open a chest with two Horned Devils inside. These are
normal enemies, not like the Avengers in the cave in Deist. The chest holds an
Elixir. In the corresponding west tower you can find another monster laden
chest, this one holding three Souls of Hate. They hold on to a Cleric's Hat.
Note that none of the other normally lootable objects in the towers have
anything, which I guess makes sense since the place already got looted.

When you enter the main doors of the castle you can continue exploring and
speaking to the ghosts to start and piece together what happened here. Graham
will have a scene in one of the bedrooms. You can also find a Mog salesman in
the left door on the right side with a healing pot, which I appreciated. The
door behind him is locked until later.

When you're ready to progress, head downstairs and through the northern door to
find some thieves pillaging the ruins. A battle commences against three Bandits
who won't cause any problems. Keep going along this route to reach a Save Point
before a door. Inside you'll find the bandits with their leader. You can search
the right barrel on the east side for an Ether here. It isn't until you speak
to the main bandit, Dundoth that the next battle will start.

This isn't quite a boss battle, especially after Hecatoncheir. Dundoth does put
up more of a fight than I was expecting though. He uses Thwack as an AoE
physical attack, and can Whack individual characters to confuse them. He comes
with the same three Bandits which you can make quick work of.

Once they're gone, they'll flee through a secret passage and the party will get
another 3 JP. You can now pick up the three chests for a Justaucorps, X-Potion,
and Barbut in clockwise order. Save if you want and then move on through the
hidden door.

+---------+
| Passage |
+---------+

Items:   Hi-Potion, Tent, Ice Bow, Cottage, Kris

Some of the enemies are similar to those in the Underwater Temple, weak against
Lightning. Head north into the passage and search the middle left pot for a 
Hi-Potion. Head south into the water, all the way down and then up onto the
platform. To the left is a Tent. Cross over the next bridge to get an Ice Bow.
Continue downstairs.

Follow the path, making note of the unattainable chest and pot. When you reach
a split, the first one leads to a chest with a Cottage. Continue along the
path, stopping for a quick Save Point around the next corner.

Surprise! Get ready for another battle. You can sneak through the west wall and
grab the earlier chest before it, though, to get a Kris. When you're ready to
fight, talk to the Avalonian leader.

The fight is against the Commander and two Lancers. It shouldn't be tough
after the previous few fights. The Lancers fall quickly, and although the
Commander can use Thwack and a strong single character axe attack, the lack of
reliance on status effects makes for a quicker battle.

After you're done, follow the bandits upstairs and swing to the right to find
the hall leading back to the castle door. Unlock it, heal yourself if you want,
and then take the second set of stairs that you passed to exit the Passage.

From here you can head north to Mt. Gulg. There is also the elusive second
Chocobo Forest, which I really though I'd missed before the castle. We're going
to use the Black Chocobo to head to the Eidolon cave, which can be found past
the reef and up above the lake. You can keep going to restock supplies at Aule
if you want, which is never a bad idea. The Weapon Shop will now be taking any
of the ore you found in the Cave of Dread and will use it to make equipment for
you, but you can find ore in the next two dungeons as well so it may be more
useful to wait rather than grind out random loot.

+----------------------+
| Cave of Perfervidity |
+----------------------+

Items:   2x Hi-Potion, Tower Shield, Antidote, X-Potion, Brigandine, Cleric's
         Staff, Ice Knuckles, Ether.

Gotta say, I really like that they went with SAT words for all the Eidolon
dungeons. Pay attention to the lava on the floor, which will drain you of 10HP
if you walk over it. Sometimes this is unavoidable, and most of the time I
didn't care, so either way. You will also find some Dwarven ore in here, and I
had a little better luck finding Iron/Mythril Ore than in the Cave of Dread.

Take the left path from the start to pick up a Hi-Potion. Then work your way
aroudn to the right and take the stairs to B2F.

You'll notice some magma waterfalls here, similar to the ice waterfalls in
Shiva's domain. We'll have to block them in a minute so we can continue on. For
now, pull the chain below you on the right to open a new staircase and head
through that entrance. You'll want to go up the ladder here and into the next
room.

Head up the first set of stairs and ladder. The chest here has a Tower Shield,
and there is another chain that you can pull to block the first magma
waterfall in this screen. Go past where it was and use this ladder to climb
further up. Take the lower path to get to another chain, which shuts off the
third magmafall. Circle around from here and go down the stairs.

On B3F, get the chest on the middle level which holds an Antidote. Follow the
path out into another screen and take the stairs you find there back up a
level. This will put you in the screen with the magmafalls, which you can use
the last chain to completely shut off. This will cause the large lava pool on
the lower level to drain. You can reach that area by heading left, down the
ladder and through the opening.

Once here you'll notice a bunch of chests and rock debris blocking your path.
You can worry about which lava spots you hit, but I couldn't be bothered. Go
left first and get that chest for an X-Potion. Up the ladder and through the
opening is another chest with a Hi-Potion. Continue up further, through the
next screen and up the stairs to get to the first room and the chest you could
see from the entrance. It holds a Brigandine. Now go back to the lava-drained
room.

This time, go right and up through the gap in the ledge to pick up a Cleric's
Staff. The ladder near here that you haven't taken yet brings you to some
Ice Knuckles, which are obviously great for this dungeon. Using the right
doorway will let you loop to the left and out to get the last chest, an Ether.
Now take the stairs you saw behind this room.

You'll descend to a Save Point here. Use it, then exit the room and circle back
around to where you'll find Ifrit out amongst the lava lake.

*****
Ifrit
*****

Slightly tougher than Shiva, if only because he has stronger physical attacks,
you can still exploit his weakness without too much effort. A Monk with the
Ice Knuckles will do high damage, as will a Warrior with Enrage/Strike. Or a
combination of these if you have it. Blizzara will do slightly less, but still
strong damage. I had my second mage on defense with Protect and Cura, and
Graham attacking regularly. I didn't want to risk his HP dropping with his Dark
Blade attacks here.

Ifrit can hit hard and quick; the first time I fought him he did, and the
second time him he was a pushover. He has a buff where he'll go into a frenzy
and start attacking physically faster and stronger. He has the typical Whack
attack which can Confuse you, which I fixed with my attack mage since they did
less than my Monk or Thief even (who had the Ice Bow). Attune Blade could be
useful here, but I found it to be more a liability than with Shiva because he
would go on streaks without using Fira, rendering my healing spells useless.
He'll also pull out Hellfire against the party which can do 500+. Just make
sure you have a dedicated healer and someone who can play both sides of the
damage/healing fence and you should be fine.

Once you beat him he'll join you as a L3 Summon. You can head out via Teleport
if you want, and I came back through a few times to get more ore, although the
way the game is designed each new section will quickly outstrip the best
equipment from the prior, so you don't need to if you want to just move on.
Mt. Gulg is just north of the exit of Falgabard Castle.

+----------+
| Mt. Gulg |
+----------+

Items:   2x Hi-Potion, Echo Grass, 2x Phoenix Down, Remedy, Prism Rod,
         Officer's Hat, Cottage, Ether, Cleric's Robe, Pinwheel, Dry Ether

Start by heading right and up the ledge for a Hi-Potion. Then go left and take
the two ladders to pick up an Echo Grass. Up the stairs and another ladder is
a Phoenix Down. Follow the path a bit further and through a doorway to reach
Station 5.

Another giang magmafall! Favorite new word. Go up the ladder and cross the
bridge towards the chest containing a Remedy. Take the next ladder and pass by
the bridge to reach a chest with a Prism Rod. Then take the bridge across to a
doorway.

This is the Summit of the volcano. Unlike most summits, there isn't anything to
do here, so climb up and around to the entrance inside the volcano itself.

You'll find a Save Point here on 4F. Go all the way up the east side and open
the chest for a Phoenix Down before crossing the bridge. Another chest is
further down holding an Officer's Hat. Then take the stairs.

You'll find some more lava down on 3F. Take the stairs to the right and loop
around to pick up a Cottage. Then take the stairs to the left and head down,
going up onto the platform then for another set of stairs.

You'll find some soldiers wandering around here that initiate battles, and no
random monsters. Go up and then head left into a nook along the far wall. The
chest here has an Ether. Then head all the way right to find a similar nook
with a Hi-Potion. The stairs are above here.

When you hit 1F you'll have a short scene. Keep going and enter the next room.
The stairs visible to your left lead to a room with a Cleric's Robe at the
end of the path. Back in the main room, head up and to the far left corner.
The entrance here leads to a chest with a Pinwheel. Find a similar entranceway
in the northeast corner, this one leading to a Dry Ether. Then head all the way
up in the middle to find a room with a Save Point. This is your last one for
the chapter, so grind against the soldiers if you want and then prep yourself
for the boss.

....Before that, though, you'll get a mini-boss battle against a Commander, a
Martial Artist and a Sorcerer. You can't save after this, but you can heal if
you want to, before continuing through the passage. Now you'll fight the real
fight, against Baugauven of the Fire. Who has somehow made it across worlds...

*********
Baugauven
*********

The good news is that Baugauven has the expected weaknesses, against Ice and
Water. The bad news is that he has several AoE attacks and hits pretty hard.
He can attack twice with his physical attacks and Burning Slash, which hit
decently. Protect is great here, and having more than one mage to heal can be
useful. My main damage dealers were my monk with the Ice Knuckles and Thief
with the Ice Bow, using an Enrage/Strike combo. You should definitely swap this
Thief out (I had him to check for Steal items) for a Warrior or Ranger and use
their abilities for better damage. I had Graham use Darkness when he had enough
HP to spare, but it seemed like the Ice-equipped fighters and mages casting
Blizzara did more damage.

He hits harder, but he also seemed to fall faster since he doesn't have
significantly more HP than Styx and your fifth member is much more useful
than Eduardo. Use two healers if you need to until the plot part of the
battle begins.

Run through a few scenes here. You'll have a scripted boss battle that you
can't lose. Afterwards you'll get Graham's Sword and Sigurd's Armor. Then you
gain the Dark Knight Job and 5 JP. A few more scenes to foreshadow and to lay
the groundwork for the next section will close outChapter 2.

Bestiary   [ffd_bes]
===============================================================================

This list is done to the best of my knowledge. I didn't fight every single
enemy until it dropped something, and I've seen an enemy drop more than one
unique item, so I'm sure there are possibilities out there I didn't encounter.
Basically everything drops Potions of some sort, but I didn't mark this every 
time if I couldn't tell which monster dropped the item. I did steal from all 
the monsters, and once you've done so you get a message that the monster 
doesn't have anything so I believe there's only one stealable item per monster.

Keep in mind that experience is shared amongst your party. So if a monster 
gives 500 experience and you have 5 characters, each will get 100. This is why
it seems like monsters give you weird, uneven amounts of experience sometimes, 
when you have your extra 5th character, or if some people are dead, or a 
monster ran away. The division doesn't always work out well but you can back 
into it easily once you have two combinations of overlapping monsters. There
also seem to be enemies with fractional experience points. Example: Megalodoth
by himself gives 50 exp to a party of 4, or 200 base. With 2 Tokudaias, the
group gives 90 exp to a party of 4, implying the Tokudaia gives 80 base each.
Now, a Tokudaia and 2 Gargoyles give 99, or 396 base, implying that a Gargoyle
give 158 exp each. But 2 Tokudaias and a single Gargoyle give 79 to a party of
4, which would be 316 base and imply that the Gargoyle gave 156, not 158. I
tried to get as many combinations as possible to get as accurate data as was
feasible, and there weren't a lot of situations where this happened. As is,
some enemies I've listed as giving x.5 experience to indicate this, and I
always gave assumption precedence to enemies which appeared without other 
types of monsters.

Some enemies only appear with each other, or only in story battles, so it isn't
possible to determine how much experience or gil you get from each. An example
are the Ensign and Lieutenant enemies, which only appear in a story battle in
the Dragonweed Gardens. In situations like this I estimated based on precedent.
Typically bosses don't give gil, so in this case I attributed the gil to the 
underlings rather than the mini-boss, and I split the AP proportionally. At the
end of the day it doesn't really matter either way though.

For enemies that aren't susceptible to Libra, I killed them at least 3 times to
get as close as possible and then went with what looks reasonable. For example,
when I fought Ramuh and he died at 7400 HP, I fought him again and used weaker
characters once I got to 7000 so that I could get as close as possible. When
he didn't die at 7147 and did die at 7234, I'm comfortable calling that 7200.

I haven't hacked the game to look at drop rates or anything like that. I've 
marked the commonly known rare drops like tails and fangs as rare, but this
could be anybody's guess as to what the drop rates really are.

The list is in alphabetical sort for simplicity. When I refer to monsters found
on the overworld, I note it by the closest landmark, which is usually the town
or city nearby.

|_____________________________________________________________________________|

Jobs in Final Fantasy Dimensions function similarly to other games in the 
series. Each character can equip a Job which is how they learn abilities. 
After battle, in addition to experience you'll also earn Ability Points (AP) 
which go towards the specific Job equipped. 

When you earn a certain amount of AP you will level the character's equipped 
Job. When you earn a Job level, your stats will increase and at some levels 
you'll earn an ability. Some of these abilities are action commands, requiring
you to use it in battle, and others are passive, like a percentage boost to a 
specific stat. Action commands are marked with an exclamation point in-game.

In addition to specific abilities, each Job can learn a skillset which 
includes multiple skills. For example, the Warrior learns Battle Arts as a 
skillset; then, when leveling up, he will learn more Battle Arts that fall 
under that ability. So when you equip Battle Arts on another Job, you will have
access to all Battle Arts you've learned so far.

Once you've learned an ability you can equip it on that character regardless
of what Job he/she currently has equipped. Every ability takes a specified 
number of slots to equip, limiting how many abilities you can equip at once and
allowing you to customize the skills each character can use. Of course, the 
higher the Job level the better the abilities normally are. You can increase
the number of slots available by leveling Jobs up, also.

You start off with a level cap of 3 for each Job. As you play the game your 
party will earn Job Points (JP) which can be used to raise this level cap to a
maximum of 20. Each JP will raise the level cap by 1, so it will take 17 JP to
fully master a Job.

Playing through the game normally will earn you 69 JP, or enough points to 
master 4 Jobs on each character. JP can also be earned by trading in Moogle 
Coins, which are found late in the game, and by farming a secret boss available
after finishing the main story if you want to master all the Jobs.

A few things to keep in mind that are that while Jobs are learned individually,
JP is shared by the party. So if you want to have 2 master Monks, you'll need
to have both characters learn the Monk Job. However when your party gets 5 JP
for progressing through the story, each character will be able to use 5 JP to
raise the level cap on a specific Job.

You will also have access to different jobs based on which characters you use.
Since the group is split between the Light and Dark worlds, each party will 
gain different Job options other than the starting Jobs found early in the
game. This will make for some strategic decisions on who you want to use late
in the game.

The lists below show how many AP you need to level each Job up to it's max 
level and what abilities you earn along the way. Every Job gains additional
Ability slots at levels 10 and 19. I've also noted which levels grant abilities
which can be used for F-Abilities. For more specific info on this, check the 
F-Abilities section.

parentheses following the ability name are two numbers: the amount of MP
required if indicated, otherwise the number of slots required to equip the

command ability rather than a passive ability.

===============================================================================
Fusion Abilities   [ffd_fus]
===============================================================================

Fusion Abilities, or F-Abilities, are combinations of 2 abilities learned 
across 2 different Jobs. They are learned randomly when using either of the 
two requisite abilities in battle. This is achieved by equipping one of the
Jobs with the desired abilities and equipping the ability itself on the same
character. What this implies is that each character has to learn 
his/her own F-Abilities, making for some customization options when deciding
which abilities you want each character to access since your JP is initially
limited during the main game.

As I briefly mentioned when you first learn about F-Abilities, there's an easy
trick to learning a few more without having to spend JP leveling up specific
Jobs. Since your mages have access to all their magic even at JLV 1, this means
you won't need to level any of your physical-type characters to access higher
level magic. For instance, if you want a Monk to learn Final Heaven, they need
to have the Monk LV20 ability and the Seer LV18 spell. So whoever is your
Master Monk can turn into a Seer and automatically access this spell. 
Conversely, however, if you want a magic-based character to learn this same
F-Ability, they'll have to become a Master Monk also, which isn't typically as
useful since you won't be able to focus on magic-based Jobs.

Another tweak of this idea is that some Jobs come with abilities innate. A good
example early on is the Dragoon coming with Jump equipped already. So if you
want your Dragoon to learn Boost Jump, you'll need to also have him become a 
Level 7 Warrior. However, if you want your Warrior to learn Boost Jump, just
put Battle Arts on a Level 0 Dragoon and you can learn it without spending the
extra JP on a class you may not want to train.

Another good point to note is that many of the F-Abilities are fun to find, 
but not all that useful in the long run. So when planning your party, think 
about which ones will be most useful, keeping in mind that the game isn't
that difficult regardless of your initial decisions and you can always grind 
out some more levels in the post-game.

Other notes: both groups of characters have the basic jobs, so they can all 
learn the associated F-Abilities, but then only learn those that belong to 
their specific set of available Jobs. Sol can't learn a Dark Knight F-Ability,
for example. Since you find different Eidolons in either world, you won't
be able to learn some Summon-based F-Abilities until near the end of the game
when the parties join again. The Memorist job for the Light Warriors also
doesn't have any F-Abilities associated with it due to the nature of its
abilities.

The list below breaks out each F-Ability with the associated abilities and JLVs
required to learn it. If an F-Ability doesn't require using any JP to learn I
consider it essentially free and note so with an asterix. I have it sorted by
F-Abilities for the initial Job set, then the Light Jobs and the Dark Jobs.

Thanks to Square-Enix for making the game and releasing it here. It's pretty
great, and it's great that we can play something of this caliber on a phone.
Thanks to the iPhone for having this game on it. Maybe some day the Droid will
get it also. Thanks to everyone who (will) contribute their information and
help, and to everyone on the GameFAQS message boards for building a little
community around the game since it was released. This is a first version so I
haven't gotten to most of the optional content, at which point I'm going to be
