He can use almost any weapon, but works well with a sword.He can be equipped with almost any armor, and can cast a few low level white magic spells after he becomes a paladin. Kain: Occupation: Dragoon Kain is mostly here for a plot twist. He is Cecil's best friend, and begins the game by your side. He can be equipped with any sword or spear(except crystal) and can use almost any armor. Rydia: Occupation: Wh. Wiz./Bl. Wiz./Caller -->Bl. Wiz/Caller Rydia is a caller from the town of mist. She falls unconscious after Mist is destroyed by the package. Cecil protects her and she joins him in battle. At first, she can cast both black, white, and caller magic but after she visits Leviatan, she can use only black and caller magic, which have been dramatically increased She can use only a bow and arrow, the rod, or a whip. As for armor, Rydia can only use robes. Rosa: Occupation: Wh. Wiz. Rosa is Cecil's girlfriend from Baron. Cecil finds her in Kaipo after an earthquake, and must find the Sandruby to help her. After that, she joins Cecil's party. She is a user of white magic, and, like Rydia, can use Bows and arrows(and should). She can also use the various staffs. For defense, Rosa relies on robes, and no shield. Tellah: Occupation: Sage(Wh. Wiz./Bl.Wiz) Tellah is a sage from Mysidia, who joins you on the way to Damcyan. At first, he can only use low level black and white magic, but after Mt. Ordeals, he becomes very powerful, although his mp remains low. He can use the staff or rod in battle, and can defend himself with weak armors and robes. Edward: Occupation: Bard Edward is the Prince of Damcyan. After losing his girlfriend in an attack by the Red Wings, Edward chooses to help Cecil. He attacks by using one of the two harps, and defends with low level armor or robes. Cid: Occupation: Engineer Cid's special talent is PEEP.He can tell you how many hit points a monster has and what its weaknesses are. He can use a bow and arrows, but he works better when using a hammer.He can use most armors. Edge: Occupation: Ninja Edge is the prince of Elban, which was destroyed recently. You find him in the Elban cave, where he gets beaten by Rubicant. He can use the very powerful ninja swords and some armors. He can also cast strong magic spells. As an added bonus, he can throw almost every item as a weapon and steal items from enemies. This makes him the most versatile character in the game. Yang: Occupation: Karate Man You find Yang on the way to Fabul. After assisting him, he joins you. He can attack using the claws, and he can use some armors. His special move attacks all enemies on the screen. It is good when fighting low level monsters, but for stronger monsters just have him attack normally. Fu Soya: Occupation: Lunar(Bl. Wiz./Wh. Wiz) He is a very powerful wizard from the moon. He will join you as soon as you find him in the crystal palace. He can use some armor and the staffs/rods, but his real strength is that he can cast just about all black AND white magic spells. Porom: Occupation: Bl.Wiz. One of the twins of Mysidia, Porom can cast low level Black magic. When paired with his sister, they can cast the twin spell, which should be the strongest magic you have at the time.Equip him with a rod. Palom: Occupation: Wh.Wiz. The other twin from Mysidia. She can cast low level white magic. She should be equipped with a staff. II) Here is a list of every item in the game, and what it does.

Be warned! This list does not contain every enemy, as some enemies (like those native to the Tower of Zot) you will not have a chance to sneak. I have found it nigh-impossible to sneak some enemies. (like Breath and Mind) To my knowledge, bosses cannot be sneaked. Most enemies will give you mundane items, like Cure1 and Heal potions.

Octomamm:Use Rydia's call magic(chocobo) and Tellah's lit spell along with Cecil's powerful attacks to defeat him. Not very difficult to beat. Antlion:Since the antlion responds to hand attacks by taking off alot of damage, use magic and Rydia's chocobo to win here. Have Cecil attack (if you think you can spare the hp's) but you really only need him here to administer cure potions. Milon(1):Have Cecil attack Milon directly, as he cannot harm the undead monsters. Let Tellah use his fire spells and make the twins cast TWIN until the battle is over. If you need to refill energy, use Tellah or potions, as MP are hard to come by this early in the game. Immediately after defeating Milon, save your game at the nearby save spot. Milon(2):Right before the end of the bridge, use change to reverse the rows of your party This will save you time during the fight and let you get an extra attack in. Milon will use poison against you, so have Tellah use heal potions or the heal staff, if you have one. Have the twins TWIN, and make Cecil attack. Baigan: The middle section of Baigan will cast WALL on itself immediately after the battle begins, so if you use magic, use it on the arms. Have Cecil attack the body and have Yang use his special attack. Kainazzo:Immediately have your wizards(Tellah/Palom) cast their strongest Lit spells. Use Porom to heal your party after Kainazzo floods you. Have Cecil and Yang attack as normal. Dark Elf:When you first fight the Dark Elf, you must intentionally lose the fight. If you have ALOT of hp, attack yourself, or else it will take forever. After he beats you, Edward will use the Twin harp to revive you. You will have full hp and mp, but it wouldnt hurt here to save the game in the room right outside.Just attack the Dk. Elf as any other enemy; his only attack is a combo of ice, lit, and fir(all level 2), which isn't even that strong. When you defeat him you will be rewarded with the Crystal of Earth. Magus Sisters:The main strategy here is to attack the heaviest one first(middle). Do not use magic unless the sister casts wall a second time and it reflects onto one of your characters. If this happens, have Tellah cast his strongest spell (ONLY ONCE) on the member of your party with the wall. You have a one in three chance of hitting the middle sister. Once she is defeated, the Delta attack cannot work and you should lose no more hp, making it easy to defeat the other two sisters. Valvalis:Have Kain constantly using his jump attack to stop her spin. have Cecil attack, and have Cid attack also. Use Rosa to heal you, unless you brought an extra set of bow and arrows along. Another good idea here is to carry some armor Rosa can use with you into the Tower of Zot, and Equip her with it before you fight Valvalis. Otherwise she is not well protected. Calbrena:Two strategies here: First, you can go all out and try to kill all six dolls before they merge. This is a great idea if you are powerful enough. Otherwise, you can just wait it out and heal yourself until they form CalBrena. After that, just attack as you would any other foe. Balnab/Dr. Lugae:Once you defeat these two, Lugae transforms himself and you must defeat him again. He's not that tough. Just use your head and heal when you have to. EvilWall:Have Rydia use Virus(or Levia, if you have it already).At any rate, just make her do her most powerful magic. Edge should use the stars that you have picked up along the way so far. When those are gone, Bersk him. Rosa should Bersk Cecil right away, so he can get in more attacks. Have Kain jump every time. If one of your characters gets crushed, bring him back to life, but only use life1. Dont waste your mp filling him/her back up. Do that after the battle, because once the Wall starts crushing, it doesn't matter how many hp's you have, because you're dead. The King and Queen of Elban: The inportant thing here is to keep people alive. If you can last until the King and Queen come to their senses, you are all set. You dont even have to attack, as they will come to their senses regardless of if you attack or not. You can fight them if you want to.Dont be afraid to use up you MPs, because Rubicant heals you completely before you fight him. A good idea here is to go back down to the save room, just in case you think you can't defeat Rubicant. Rubicant:Its very difficult to time, but most of the time it works well. Have Rydia cast her Shiva or Ice3 spell, but try to time it so she casts it as Rubicant opens his cape. Otherwise, Ice and cold spells heal him. Bersk Cecil(you should do this with every boss) If more than one of your characters are swoon, then have Edge cast Flame. Rubicant will revive all dead members of your party. Have Rosa attack, then cure, then attack, etc. Queen Asura:Rosa must be at level 34 or everyone else must be at level 99. Have Rosa cast the wall spell on Asura, and all her cures will reflect onto your players. She rarely attacks, so you dont have to even worry about curing yourself. Just attack her until she dies. She can't refill her energy. King Leviatan:Just attack him, and Cure yourself after he waves you. As always, besrk Cecil and this time Edge, as well. King Bahamut:As soon as you get FuSoYa, go to Bahamut's cave on the moon. You can do it without him, but it is MUCH MORE DIFFICULT, as you only have one person who can cast Wall. Use Rosa and FusSoYa to cast wall on as many members of your party as you can before Meganuke comes. Use your judgement here... decide for yourself which charcters you need to stay alive. If you can get them all, great. But chances are, your wizards aren't at a high enough level to cast wall spells quickly. Have the wizard(s) cast Wall on themselves, so in case anyone else dies, they can stay alive to cast wall again. CPU:This is a snap if you got the bahamut spell before returning to Earth. Attack the healing globe first, then the attacker, then concentrate on the big one. You are likely to fall victim to GLOBE99, which instantly kills your character. Just have Rydia do BAHAMUT constantly, and have FuSoYa cast his strongest spell. -Alt. strategy: Go after the Defender first, then the attacker, then the CPU. This way, you will be taking damage from the attacker, which is considerably less than the CPU. -From The "Zotmeister" Zeromus:First, use the crystal(CECIL MUST USE IT). Once he has transformed, Bersk Cecil. Have Rydia use Bahamut or Nuke.Have Rosa attack with White, unless you need to be cured. Zeromus will use Virus, Meteo, Big Bang, and the Black Hole. Big Bang takes off a couple thousand hps and then drains them for a while. The Black Hole makes all magics invalid. This means that if you casted a wall spell, it disappears. (I think that is the correct effect. It does nothing to deter any attack or heal magics. If anyone can verify this, E-mail me. Thanx) Zeromus has approximately 105,000 hit points. -How do I get the Pan? Once you have gone through the Sylvan cave and found yang sleeping, go to the overworld and talk to Yang's wife. She will give you the Pan.Then return to Yang and use it on him. Then you will recieve the call magic Sylph. If you return to see Yang's wife after that, she will give you the spoon dagger, which can only be thrown by Edge. There is only one in the game, so save it for Zeromus. It takes 9999 damage. -How do I reach the four treasure chests below the town of Summoned Monsters? To reach the chests, go to the first floor of the town. In the lower right area there isa hidden spot you must walk on. It looks like a normal peice of the floor, except it is outlined in brown. Step there and you will go to the room with the four chests. A note of caution: If you want to stay in the town after opening the chests, walk back to the tile you came in on. The other tile in the room warps you back outside. -Where is the Pink Tail? On the moon, go to the Lunar Subteraen, Level 5. Walk all the way to the right, and there is a room with a chest on the right side. It is the only thing in the room, and there is a cabin inside the chest. Walk around the room for a while, and eventually you should bump into a Pink Puff. Defeat it and it may give you a Tail. BTW, the chances of finding a pink puff are 1 in 64, and the chances of him giving you a tail are also 1 in 64. You do the math. If you've got the time to kill, by all means, try it. VIII) Tips from Adam and Kelly: -Don't "drain" undead monsters. -Dont use the lillith rod on a lillith. -For some easy experience, try this: In areas where you fight Alert or Summoners, let them keep calling monsters. The Alert won't call anything until you attack it, so use a low level spell, such as VENOM, which takes off very few hp(so the fight lasts longer). Defeat the summoned enemies repeatedly and rack up the experience! -If you know that you will "lose" a character (he will leave your party) then de-EQUIP him before he leaves so that you may keep the weapons and armor, and sell them. On a similar note, if you know that a person will join your party in a location far from a town, i.e. Rosa in the Tower of Zot, buy the armor and weapons for that character in advance, if you can afford it. -Immediately upon entering the Sylvan or Summoned monster caves, cast the float spell on all your characters. All characters can be effected at the same time-you dont have to cast the spell five times.You do, however have to do it each time you go up or down a floor. -On the Big Whale, there are two control switches. One is the crystal in the center of the room, as you enter the ship. That will take you from planet to planet.The other switch is directly above the crystal, on the wall. This will let you fly the ship around on the planet you are on. When you get FusoYa, you can do the latter and fly over to Bahamut's cave, and get his call magic. It will help you defeat the Elements and the CPU inside the Giant of Bab-Il. If you don't, it doesnt matter; you can always come back later. -Its probably common knowledge, but were you aware that on the Big Whale, if you walk down, you can see another room (two, actually). In the first of these two rooms, there are a bucnh of rectangle shapes.If you step on one of these, it refills all your life and mp. In the second room, there is a big Chocobo to store all your items.
