Once you arrive at the Library talk to the people at the central hall, and gather informations about Mid. Then, go to the basement dungeon of Library from the left door on first floor. On the first room, there is hidden switches on the bookshelves, so push those to make your way through. I recommend learning "Level 5 Death" from 64 page. Your party should be level 15 (if you followed my recommendations), but make sure that not all of your menber is level 15. After you learned Level 5 Death, proceed further down into the Library and get Ifrit. Boss #1 of Library: Ifrit.

(Town of Gohn... the ruin of Lonka)
Go through the quicksand desert by choosing the right quicksand to ride. Once you got out from the southern exit, walk further south. Enter the town and encounter King Tycoon. He will disappear, so go left or right (doesn't make difference) and search for him. If you found him (and he'll vanish again) go up the central staircase. After falling into the pitfall, go through the door (there is only one).
(Catapult, Gohn, and Catapult....)

When you arrive at the second world, use "tent". (If you don't have a supply, you can fight the enemies here to obtain tent) While you are asleep, Abductor attacks your party. You have to fight with Butz alone. Boss of Solitary Island: Abductor. Lv. 22, HP 1500 Normal way to beat this boss: Just simply attack and you shouldn't have any problem. Use "Kearura" to heal your HP when Abductor uses "hurricane". Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: If your character (Butz) has high HP, "????" can be used as a weapon. "????" inflicts same amount of damage as your "max HP - current HP". Also, "DeathClaw" works against him.
(Basement of Exdeath Castle)
You have to rescue Butz, Lenna, and Faris with Galuf alone. Best job here would be Monk with "Kusuri no Chisiki" or "Shiromahou" as an ability. You'll fight Gilgamesh in front of the jail. Boss of Basement of Exdeath Castle: Gilgamesh. Lv. ??, HP ?? Normal way to beat this boss: Since he only does physical attacks, just attack him normally.

Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: The point of this battle is when Gilgamesh power ups. (He'll use "shell" and "protesu") So, just attack with "mahouken-sairesu" from the start so that he cannot cast those magics on power up.
(Town of Rugoru)

If you get hit by "bone", make sure to heal him/her before "zombie breath" comes. Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: To say the truth, Tirasaurs is especially weak against "gravite". So put everyone with "Jikuu" ability and cast multiple "gravite". When the damage becomes 2 digits, just attack once, and he's gone.
When you cross the Grociana desert and enter the forest, you'll arrive at Mouguli town. Make sure not to step into the desert, for SandCrawler will attack you. (SandCrawler has HP 5000 and you cannot run away) Put on the Mouguli doll to get the "Elf no Manto" (Elf's cloak) here.
After the auto-event, Hiryuu (Flying dragon) will fall. In order to save Hiryuu, you now must goto "Hiryuu no tani" (Valley of Flying Dragons) to get "Hiryuu sou" (Flying Dragon's Weed). You can get free "Great Sword" in the moat of this castle. Walk counter-clockwise and search the dead end. Also, if you use the staircase on back of weapon shop, you can get "Tenshi no Hakui" (White Robe of Angels) and by standing at the counter between weapon shop and armor shop (there is hidden switch) weapon shop master will give to "Ramia no Tategoto" (Ramia's Harp: Confuses enemy).

"Sekizou" can be killed with "Lv. 5 Death" or "Kin no Hari" (Golden Needle: Destones the target), and it gives 4 ABP (Ability points) when it comes in pair (with 1014 giru) or 8 ABP when it comes in set of 4 (with 2028 giru). If you think you need some more abilities, this is good place to gather some ABPs.
(Town of Quelb)
Enter the big house at center of the town. Kelgar will open the door on north side of the town. Also, learn "Requiem" from dancing werewolves on upper-right corner of the town. Lastly, if you have time, try to "Toraeru" (Capture: Majuutsukai (Beast Master)'s ability)) "Korunago" (Looks like orange toad) and give it to the man in the well. He'll trade your "Korunago" for "Korunago no Tsubo" (Pot of Korunago: See below for details) You can get 24 free potions (8 potions for 3 times) by sitting at the chair in the inn. Note: What the heck is "Korunago no Tsubo"?? "Korunago no Tsubo" is special item that's very useful if you have Majuutsukai (Beast Master) in your party. Normally, you have to decrease the enemy's HP to 1/8 in order to "capture" it, but with this Pot, you can capture by decreasing the enemy's HP to 1/2. If you have difficulty capturing Korunago at first place (it's smart enough to run), try using "stop".)
(Valley of the Flying Dragons)
At the top of this valley, you'll fight "Hiryuusou". But make sure to get "Bone Mail" (a.k.a. Undead Armor) on your way. (Check the bones that's lying on the ground) Hints for the Valley of the Flying Dragons If you can't go further, try searching the hole in the ground! Occasinary, you'll meet "Golem" requesting help from your party. If you kill two monsters without harming Golem, you'll obtain Shoukanjuu (Summoned Beasts) Golem. Like Ramuh, you have to use it as an item to add Golem to the Shoukan list. Many of the monsters in this valley are undeads. Try using "requiem" you got at Quelb! (You have to have "Utau" ability or be in Gin'yuushijin (bard)) Boss of the Valley of the Flying Dragons: Hiryuu sou. Lv. 29, HP 12000 Normal way to beat this boss: When you kill all of those flowers beside Hiryuusou, they'll revive with 5 flowers. Heal the effect of "kafun" (pollen) with "Esna". Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: If you use the "Golem" you got at this valley, "kafun" (pollen) will not harm your party. "Gravite" works pretty well against Hiryuusou. Reduce the HP of Hiryuusou to 3 digits and use "Zeninage" (coin toss: ability of Samurai) command to finish them off.
(Bal Castle Once Again)
If you give Hiryuusou to Hiryuu, Hiryuu will revive and you'll be able to control him. Head north from Bal Castle (NE from Quelb) to get to the outer world. Next destination is Ghido's Dwelling, which is located northeast from Bal.
When you enter the entrance of this cave, the whole island will start to sink. Head west after escaping from the sinking island.
Gather the information about Zeza (You'll learn that Zeza went to east of Exdeath castle with his fleet). At king's bedroom, get "Subayasa no Uta" (Song of Speed). Also at the Library of this castle, put back the scattered books to appropriate place to open the secret door. The scattered books are (from left to right) "Kindan no Sho" (Forbidden Book), "Mamono Daijiten" (Dictionary of the Monsters), and "Ronka no Himitsu" (Secret of Lonka). See below for details on where to put back the books. You'll get "Leviteto" as a reward. Hint: Placing the books Thanks to Nora [NEStevens@aol.com] for confirmation of the bookshelf arrangement.
--1-- --2-- --3--
--4-- --5-- --6-- --7--
--8-- --9-- -10-- -11--
Put: "Kindan no Sho" (Left most book) into bookshelf #2. "Mamono Daijiten" (Middle book) into bookshelf #7. "Ronka no Himitsu" (Right most book) into bookshelf #9.
Land your Hiryuu on the biggest ship in Zeza's fleet located east of Exdeath Castle. Meet Zeza, and goto bed. While in sleep, monsters attack the fleet. You can ignore the wandering enemies if you want. Head to the bottom to fight the boss. Boss on Zeza's Fleet: Gilgamesh & Enkidou Gilgamesh: Lv. ??, HP ?? Enkidou: Lv. 29, HP 4000 Normal way to beat these bosses: "Gravite" works against Enkidou. Use magic or physical attacks against Gilgamesh. Quick and dirty way to beat these bosses: "Confuyu" works against Enkidou. Once you get Enkidou on your side, concentrate your attacks on Gilgamesh. Also make sure to steal "Genji no Kote" (Genji Gauntlet). There is only one set of Genji equipment.
You start from the basement and head to the top of the tower. At the top of the tower, you'll fight "Atomos". Boss of Barrier Tower: Atomos. Lv. 41, HP 19997 Normal way to beat this boss: If you revive the character which was hit with "Comet", Atomos will use the "Comet" once again. Before the character is sucked into the "waam hole", do critical attacks of Samurais and Monks. Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: "Slow" works against Atomos. There is no easy way around this boss. You may want to use "Zeninage" here if you have alot of giru to spare. Otherwise, do critical attacks of Samurais and Monks.
After you obtained the submarine, go to the sunken island of Ghido's dwelling. At the very bottom of the cave, you'll meet Ghido the wise one. He'll give you "Chourou no Eda" (Stem of the Elderly Tree) and advise you to goto Great Forest of Muah.
When you open the map undersea, you'll see a white dot on north-western part of the world map. Goto that place and go through the cave. When you exit the cave, wander around until you encounter Katoblepas. Beat him to get Katoblepas. Katoblepas: Lv. 38, HP 5000 When you attack, he'll use "Akuma no Hitomi" (Devil's eye) to stone one character. Make one "Odoriko" (Dancer) and equip him/her with Ribbon to guard against "Akuma no Hitomi". Use the Dancer to destone the characters and attack, attack, attack!
(Town of Muah)
You can enter this town if you carefully observe the overworld map and underwater map. (Concentrate your search on western part of the map) Once you found your way, go to the town first and buy the necessities. You can get "Main Gauche" from the thing on left of the Pub building. You cannot go through the locked door at this time.
(The Great Forest of Muah Treasures)
When you come to the middle of the forest, Exdeath will light the fire on forest. Don't panic. You have plenty of time to search around for treasure boxes. After you have collected the treasures, enter Mouguli's hole.
(The remains of Elderly Tree)
If you use "Chourou no Eda" in front of the Elderly Tree, the passage will open. Inside, you'll fight "Fuuin wo Mamoru Mono" (Guardian of the Seal). After the battle, Galuf dies, and Kururu will join your party. Boss of Elderly Tree: Fuuin wo Mamoru Mono Each piece is Lv. 77, HP 7777, and has individual attribute of Fire, Ice, Wind, and Earth. Normal way to beat this boss: "Gravite" works fairly well. When they began to use magics, use "shell" to reduce the damage. Just mix the attacks with healing. Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: Cast "Leviteto" to everyone. Then use "Titan" with all four members of your party. (Ignore the Earth segment for now) After other three dies, use "Graviga". Earth segment is near death by now....
(Cave of Gilgame)
This place is optional and you may skip if you aren't in need of quick cash. Behind the doors, you can get 10, 20, 40, 80, 160, 320, 640, 1280, 2560, 5120, 10240, 20480, and 40960 giru, but you'll encounter the mighty Gilgame with high rate. Gilgame has HP of 32768 (same as Exdeath you'll meet later) and his weakness is "ice". So use "Mahouken Bulizaga" to beat him. Golem's guard will be nullified in 2 rounds or so. Dirty way to beat Gilgame.... but it's not quick. Equip everyone with Gin'yuushijin's (Bard's) "Kakureru" (Hide) ability. When you enter the battle, let everyone hide until Gilgame does "Kame no Koura" (Turtle Shell) twice. After he has done the "Kame no Koura" attack, surprisingly, Gilgame's attack won't hit your party. I'm sure you know what to do NOW. ; ) [Yes, come out and attack!!]
Are you ready to beat up the Exdeath? Do you think you have good job-ability combination? If not, you should go back to basement of Bal Castle and gather some ABP (Ability point) there. If you are ready, go up from the unlocked front door. At the third floor, head back a little to break the illusion of Exdeath. After revealing the true shape of Exdeath castle, proceed. Get Karbunkle at 10th floor, fight Gilgamesh at 12th floor, and finally, you'll fight Exdeath at 13th floor. I recommend having "Otoshiana Kaihi" (Avoid Snares : Fuusuishi (Elemental User) Lv. 2), and "Damage Yuka" (Damage Floors : Fuusuishi (Elemental User) Lv.3) abilities to help your way. (You can have Fuusuishi (Elemental User) + Dash in your party) Bosses on parade in Exdeath Castle Boss #1: Karbunkle. Lv. 44, HP 15000. Normal way to beat this boss: Karbunkle is always in "reflec" status, so just cast "reflec" to your party and reflect the magics to Karbunkle. You can steal "Reflect Ring" from him. Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: Make four Shoukanshi (Summoner) and cast Katoblepas. The success rate is rather low, but you can kill him in one shot. Boss #2: Gilgamesh. Lv. ??, HP ??? Since his attacks are pretty weak, I'll skip the "quick and dirty" section. Just attack normally and heal with "Kearuga" (Cure 3) and "Esna". Boss #3: Exdeath. Lv. 66, HP 32768, Weakness: Holy Powers Normal way to beat this boss: Guard your party with "shell", "leviteto", and "Golem". Then attack Exdeath, but make sure that you can cast "Raise" at any given time during battle. Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: Cast "Golem" and "Karbunkle". Equip everyone with "AoMahou" ability and heal with "White Wind". For attacking Exdeath, "Midareuchi" (Archer Lv. 5) and "Tameru" (Monk Lv. 2) works pretty well. After the battle with Exdeath, World One and World Two merges together....
(Tycoon Castle, Death Valley, and West Valley)
After the dance party in Tycoon, leave the Tycoon castle and head to the Pirate's Hideout. Boko will once again join your party. Ride the chocobo north from Tycoon castle and you fight Antolion at the West Valley. Faris joins here.
(Ghido's Dwelling, and Ancient Library Exdeath returns here)
After Exdeath leaves, head to the Ancient Library. When you arrive at the Ancient Library, make sure to get the "Maryoku no Uta" (Song of Magics) at top of the Library. Then get the "Fuuin no Sho" (Concealed Book). Once you got the book, head to the Pyramid.
On the fourth floor, you'll encounter many "Machine Head"s. Since you can not run away from them, you have to defeat it everytime you encounter one. Stats for "Machine Head" is: Lv. 37, HP 7210, weakness: Water and Thunder. Use "Mahouken-sandaga" to kill them. At the top of the Pyramid you'll find the first "Sekiban" (Stone Tablet). Also, Bahamut shows up and he flies to the North Mountian.
(Elderly Tree On the way back from Pyramid)
to the Library, you'll meet with Exdeath. Exdeath sucks Ancient Library into "mu" (Nothingness) and Meryujiinu appears. After the fight with Meryujiinu, Lenna joins your party. Boss of the Elderly Tree: Meryujiinu. Lv 29-33, HP 20000 Note: Meryujiinu does barrier change and her weakness can be one of Fire, Ice, or Thunder. Normal way to beat Meryujiinu Before you fight, make one character that can use "Raibura" or "Miyaburu" to see her weakness. Then hit her weakness. Quick and dirty way to beat Meryujiinu Since Meryuujiinu's barrier change changes her weakness to one of Fire, Ice, or Thunder, attack with magics other than those (i.e. "Aeroga", "Bio", etc..). Use "Mahouken Sairesu" to stop her magics.
(Getting Airship Once you beated Meryujiinu)
head to east coast to get the airship. (You saw it from top of the Pyramid, right?) Ride the airship and some towns & castles will be sucked into the "mu" (Nothingness).
(Pirate's Base revisited)
Once you have Lenna and Faris in your party, you can obtain Shoukanjuu (Summoned Beast) "Syldra" here.
(Concealed Castle of Koozer)
Place the first "sekiban" (Stone Tablet) at central table at basement of Koozer castle. You can choose any THREE weapons for your use. Choose wisely. Here are the locations of the weapons in Koozer (Clockwise from Top) Excalibur : Attribute of Holy power.
Assasin Dagger : Randomly kills target upon attacking.
Sasuke no Katana (Sasuke's Katana) : Has evade rate.
Holy Lance : Attribute of Holy power.
Rune Ax : Use MP to do critical hits.
Masamune : Always attack first in battle.
Yoichi no Yumi (Bow & Arrow of Yoichi) : No special ability.
Fire Byuuto : Randomly casts "Faiga" (Fire 3) against target.
Kenja no Tsue (Wise One's Cane) : Increases damage of "Holy"
Wizard Rod : Has every attribute, and increases magic's damage.
Apollon no Harp (Apollon's Harp) : Critical hits against dragons.
Daichi no Bell (Bell of the earth) : Randomly casts "quake".
Nasty enemies of Koozer Castle ExdeathSoul Lv.1, HP 20000, weakness: Holy power This is an armor that has soul of Exdeath concealed into it. Since his attacks are strong (Death, Degeon, Shinigami no Ken (Death God's Sword), etc..) I recommend you run. No exp. Shield Dragon Lv. 29, HP 19999 Since he is already in the "reflec" status, your magics will be reflected. I recommend "ayatsuru" (Control) the Shield Dragon and using "Honoo" (Flame) against itself. It will inflict 4999 damage.
(Town of Cresent and Town of Mirage)
Gather information about town of Mirage at Cresent. Then head to the town of Mirage by encountering at forest south-west of cresent. Gather information, buy equipments, and buy the level 6 magics. You can find the last "piano" here. Also, Black Chocobo is here, but not needed at this time (since you have airship).
(Shrine of Solitary Island Treasures)
You have to move around through the air duct in this dungeon. Flip the right switch down to get Elixer, return to the switch room, flip the left switch down to get 9000 giru, and flip the right switch UP to proceed. You can steal "Eibis Killer" from "ToteEibis" ( Large bird looking enemy) which always results critical hits against Eibis enemies. I also recommend having "Otoshiana Kaihi" (Avoid Snare) ability here. At the very end, you'll fight Stalker. Boss of the Shrine of Solitary Island: Stalker. Lv. 7, HP 20000 Splits up into four segments. Only one of them is the true Stalker. If you use magics to all four segments, he'll revenge with "Blaze". Normal way to beat this boss: Use "Zeninage" and "Midareuchi" to inflict damages. If you like gambling, you may want to try using "Tameru" (Charge) on one target. Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: Make all members in the party that can use distant attacks. (i.e. Magics, Jump, Arrow, etc..) Then let each member of the party attack one unique segment.
(Concealed Castle of Koozer)
Obtain additional three legendary weapons.
(Fork Tower Treasures)
You have to divide your party into two in this tower. One party goes up the "Tower of Magics" (Left) and other goes up the "Tower of Power" (Right). Note that only magics are allowed in "Tower of Magics" and only physical attacks are allowed in "Tower of Power". Also, you have to fight two bosses successively, so you cannot change the equipments around between the boss battles. After you beat one of the boss, quickly take the other. Otherwise, the tower will explode. Boss of the "Tower of Power": Minotaur. Lv. 37, HP 19850 Normal way to beat this boss: When the battle begun, the "mute" magic is already in effect. Thus no magics can be used (including Mahouken). Heal your character with "HiPotion". Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: Just put Monk with "Mamoru" (Guard) ability and guard until Minotaur dies. Since "Mamoru" makes all physical attacks zero Monk won't get any damages, and Monk's "Counter" ability would counter-attack Minotaur's attack. This ensures your victory even with one character. Boss of the "Tower of Magics": Subete wo Shirumono. Lv. 53, HP 16999, weakness: Wind Normal way to beat this boss: Note that if you do any physical attacks against "Subete wo Shirumono", he will cast "return" and resets the battle to beginning. (Very good way to recover your party if you get beated badly though) Since this will be magic battles, use "Earoga" (Aero2) against him. Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: Cast "Baasaku" (Bersk) to him first. Then he can't use his magics anymore. Then use "Golem" to guard his attacks. He can't even cast the last Flare due to berserked status.
(Airship Modification Enter)
Cid will modify your airship... and your new airship can transform into submarine as well.
(The Great Deep)
Go through the Dwarf Kingdom and head to the very bottom floor. After the battle with boss, you'll get the third "sekiban" (Stone Tablet) and strongest Jikuu magic, Meteo. Some notes about this dungeon: Most of the monsters in this dungeon are undeads, so I recommend using "requiem". It costs no MP, but inflict alot of damage. On the B4F, do not push the second switch. It will remove the bridge and you have to go around the magma. On the B4F with five switches, push the one on upper left. This will make a bridge to the treasure box. Other four leads to the magma pond. On the B8F, push three switches on the lower half of the floor to get access to the boss's room. Other one will open the door to Kaiser Knuckle. Bosses of the Great Deep Toraiton (Red). Lv. 37, HP 13333, Weakness: Ice, Kearu Neregeid (Blue). Lv. 20, HP 13333, Weakness: Fire, Kearu Phorbos (Green). Lv. 39, HP 13333, Weakness: Earth Normal way to beat these bosses: Toraiton will absorb fire, Neregeid will absorb ice, and Phorbos will absorb poison magics. Thus, you can attack them with magics that have attribute other than the above one. "Sandaga", "Syldra"'s ThunderStorm, and "Titan" would work. If you get hit by "Delta Attack", heal with "Kin no Hari" (Golden Needle) Quick and dirty way to beat these bosses: Since two out of three are undead, use "requiem" with all members of the party. (Need Gin'yuushijin's (Bard's) ability "Utau" (Sing)).
(Concealed Castle of Koozer)
Obtain additional 3 weapons. There should be only three weapons left when you leave this place.
(Basement of Bal Castle)
Enter this place by climbing the wall at deadend in Dungeon of Jacole. Go up to meet Odin, but make sure to unlock the door on bottom before you leave this place. Boss of Basement of Bal Castle: Odin. Lv. 2, HP 17000 Normal way to beat this boss: You need to defeat Odin in 60 seconds... otherwise, he's "Zantetsuken" (Iron Cutting Sword) will kill your party. Try casting magics on him (Holy or Flare would work), or throw Shurikens ("Nageru" (Throw) ability of Ninja required). Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: Use "Mahouken Bureiku"... this will petrify Odin and only requires 2 turns. If you have time, you might want to steal "Mamori no Yubiwa" (Protection Ring) from Odin.
(Pheonix Tower Treasures)
You need to get Black Chocobo at Town of Mirage to reach this place. (Airship cannot land on the desert nor forest) Land your Black Chocobo at forest north-east from the Pheonix Tower (Tower you see in west from Carwen). Once you are in the tower, search the wall in middle for the hidden staircase. Each floor without staircase going up will have *two* staircase leading to upper floor. One of the door has enemies in it, and other doesn't. For the quick and dirty way to go through this tower, read the following line. Otherwise, skip the following line.
Note: When you meet a monster named "Magic Pot", give him Elixer. When he escapes, he will give you 100ABP (Ablitiy Point). Also if you happened to have "Thief" in your party, try stealing the following items from enemies. Sherry (Dancer with Red Dress): You can steal "Rainbow Dress" and occasionary can steal "Sango no Yubiwa" (Coral Ring). Komusabera (Snake Lady): You can steal "Akai Kutsu" (Red Shoes) and occasionary can steal "Elf no Manto" (Elf's Cloak). Chamukyubia (Floating Lady with Red Dress): You can steal "Reflect Ring" (You can sell it for money) and occasionary can steal "Rainbow Dress". Why do I need these items anyway!? Rainbow Dress and Red Shoes can only be equipped by Odoriko (Dancer) [ Suppin too. Suppin can equip anything ] and these two items increases the change of getting "Tsurugi no Mai" (Sword Dance) which quadruples your sword attack. Very useful dance. At the very top of the tower, you'll get Shoukanjuu (Summoned Beast) Pheonix.
North mountain is located north from the forest you landed your Black Chocobo. So, why not go there now? At the peek of the north mountain, Bahamut will fight you... and if you win, you'll get Shoukanjuu (Summoned Beast) Bahamut. Boss of North Mountain: Bahamut. Lv. 99, HP 40000 There is no quick and dirty way to kill Bahamut. Use "slow" and "stop" to reduce Bahamut's attacking oppotunities, and attack Bahamut with Mahouken Flare, Meteo, or Holy.
(Sunken Tower of Walse)
Okay, how many of you remember that tower of Walse sunk in World One? It sank, and it still exists underwater in World Three. You can enter this tower by using your submarine. You'll enter from top of the tower and make your way to bottom. However, since our hero cannot breath underwater, you must return to the submarine before time runs out. At the very bottom of the tower, you'll encounter Gogo. If you beat Gogo, you'll get the last piece of the Crystal and the last job of Mimic. Boss of Sunken Tower of Walse: Gogo. Lv. ??, HP ???? When you attack him, he will revenge your party with "Meteo", "Holy" and "????". Listen carefully to what he say... "If you mimic me, you can win." So do whatever he does, and if he doesn't do anything, don't do anything.
You have to enter this place from underwater cave. Look for a white spot on your underwater map near Istory Falls. Hints: On B3F, you need ability "Dash" to get the treasure box behind the running water. On B5F, you can go to lower floor by jumping down from the holes on lower left. Open the hole by using the switch. Nasty monster of Istory Falls... Tonberi! Tonberi's level is 46 and has 39393 points of HP. Also his special attack "Houchou" (Cooking Knife : Ouch!) will randomly hit four times for significant damage. If you think you can't kill him before he approaches your party, run. But he will sometimes drop "Mirage Vest" (This vest has effect of "blink" and can evade one physical attack per battle with 100% evade rate). Boss of Istory Falls: Rivaiathan. Lv. 39, HP 40000, weakness Thunder He is weak against Thunder and has an attribute of water. So, Mahouken Sandaga and Sandaga will work the best against Rivaiathan. If you were able to afford buy some "Sango no Yubiwa" (Coral Ring: Sold at Town of Mirage for 50,000 giru each), you can absorb any water attacks including Rivaiathan's Tidal Wave.
(Concealed Castle of Koozer)
Get the last three weapons
8 9 03. The Final Fantasy Classic Collection - PlayStation
(Cleft of Dimention)
The entrance to Cleft of Dimention is the hole where it used to be Tycoon. Fly over the hole to get into the Cleft of Dimention. Since this dungeon is long, I will seperate the walkthrough into following sections: The Ruins, The Forest, The Dungeon, The Towers, The Castle, and The Final Floors.
You can climb to upper floor by hanging onto the moving chains. A monster called "Baldandells" (Looks like circle with skull on it) sometimes drops "Rune no Bell" (Bell of Rune) the strongest bell of all. (It does critical hit using MP and has all attributes) Once you are in the town, head to the exit.
Nothing special about this place except that there is a boss in this forest. Boss of CoD Forest: Karophysteli. Lv. 68, HP 18000 Normal way to beat this boss: When she uses "Reflec", nullify it with "Dispell". Then use "sairesu" to stop her from using the magics. Since she doesn't have any weaknesses nor attributes, any attack would work. Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: "Mahouken" and "Shoukanjuu" (Summoned Beast) does not get reflect by reflect magic. So, use Mahouken Sairesu to stop her magic and use "Shoukanjuu" (Summoned Beast) to attack her.
You can enter the left most waterfall on upper level (the level you start with). Just after the save point, you will see "Omega" wondering. If you wish to try your strength, fight it. If you don't want to waste time, you can ignore it. For those of you who wished to fight, here is the stats. If you went past Omega's place, check the book on the table to fight the boss. Omega: Lv 119, HP 55530, MP 60700, Attack Power 115, Defence Power 190, Agility 76, Evade Rate 95%, Magic Defence 150, Attribute: Water, Wind, Earth, Holy Power, Poison, Ice, and Fire. How to beat Omega: I'll write this at later section of the walkthrough. (So that it doesn't spoil the challenge) Boss of CoD Dungeon: Apanda. Lv 59, HP 22200, weakness: Fire (No, it's not A Panda... it's Apanda) Normal way to beat this boss: Basic strategy is same as Biblos of Ancient Library. You can use Fire magics. But make sure not to use Ifrit, since he will heal himself with "Chiryou" (Cure). Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: Just cast "Baasaku" (Bersk) to Apanda and guard his attacks with "Golem". But make sure not to use Ifrit, because he will heal the berserked status.
The Towers The roads are invisible, but you can see them with Thief's "Kakushi Tsuuro" (Hidden Route) ability. No bosses in this section, but enemies of this section can be tough. Read the following hints to help yourself. Ninja has high evade rate (70%). You can use AoMahou ( BlueMagic) "Goblin Punch" to inflict damages. Goblin Punch uses no MP, but can hit for about 3500+ points of damage. You can rarely steal "Artemis no Yumi" (Bow of Artemis) from Dragon Eibis (Looks like flying dragon). Also, if you have "Eibis Killer" (Bow you could've have stolen at Shrine of Solitary Island), you might want to use it.
Once you enter the main entrance, head straight and go DOWN the staircase and go left. There, you'll fight Apocaryopus, and after the battle, save point will open. Once you have saved the game, explore both wings of the castle (Right wing has Thor's Hammer and left wing has Helmes's Shoes). Once you got most of the treasures, walk right from the save point, and fight Catastrophe. (You can fight Arute Roite if you want to get Rainbow Dress and Red Shoes, (One in the jail) but I'm sure you stole these at Pheonix Tower, right?) Once you beat Catastrophe, go up the stairs until you reach outside. Make sure to get ManEater at end of the left staircase. Then enter the central door and you'll fight Harikarunassosu when you try to go up the staircase. After you beat Harikarunassosu, go up the staircase and face up at the top of the castle. You will fight Twin Tania here. Once you beat Twin Tania, you can followed the staircase up, and you'll warp to the last floor. One Note: On the staircase to the warp point, enemy called "Youjinbou" (Looks like samurai) will show up. Rarely, you can steal "Ame no Murakumo", the strongest Katana [stronger than Excalibur!]. Bosses of CoD Castle: Apocaryopus. Lv. 57, HP 27900, Weakness: Poison He uses most of AoMahou (BlueMagic) and he also can "learn" your AoMahou. Normal way to beat this boss: Since his weakness is poison, Mahouken Bio can inflict 7000+ points of damage. Keep attacking, and there shoudn't be no problem. Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: Steal his "Kyojin no Kote" (Giant's Glove) first. Then let one of your member use "Jibaku" (Exploder) to Apocaryopus. He will learn it, and if you are in luck, Apocaryopus will scarifice himself. (One of your member WILL die) If this didn't work, just follow the normal way. Arute Roite/Jura Eibis: Lv. 58 - 61, HP 6000 - 15000 He will transform into Jura Eibis after some amount of damage. Normal way to beat this enemy: When he is in Arute Roite's shape, Mahouken and Flare works. When you get hit by "circle" (Erases one of your character for that battle) use "return" to reset the battle. When he transforms, Fire, Ice, and Thunder magics will not work. Use "Bio" to attack then. Quick and dirty way to beat this enemy: "Graviga" works against Arute Roite. When he transforms into Jura Eibis, use Odin. Catastrophe: Lv. 71, HP 19997 Normal way to beat this boss: There is no attribute or weakness so any attack would work. He uses "EarthShaker" and if you use "leviteto", he nullifies it with "Juuryoku 100" (Gravity 100). Cure "Akuma no Hitomi" (Devil's Eye) with "Kin no Hari" (Golden Needle). Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: When you use "leviteto", Catastrophe will use "juuryoku 100". So, if you make one character into "leviteto" chanting character, Catastrophe can't do anything but "juuryoku 100".... Harikarunassosu: Lv. 97, HP 33333 Normal way to beat this boss: If you get hit by "Kururururu!" cure him/her with "Otome no Kiss" (Lady's Kiss : Cure's Toad). Heal the character that got hit by "Holy" or "Power shuuchuu" (Power Concentration) with "raise". Since she has no attribute nor weakness, any attack would work. Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: Use Mahouken Sairesu to stop her magics, and use "Minimum" to stop her "Power Shuuchuu". Then cast "Baasaku" (Bersk) to stop her "Kururururu!" attack. Twin Tania: Lv. 39, HP 50000, weakness: Holy power, water After he "power up", he will use "Giga Flare", a flare rumored to be stronger than Bahamut's "Mega Flare". Normal way to beat this boss: Twin Tania's weakness is water and holy power. So use Mahouken Holy and Rivaiathan to attack. Use "shell" to guard your party against his "Giga Flare". Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: Twin Tania's hidden weakness is when he does his power up. When the message "Giga Flare no tameni power up!" (Powering up for GigaFlare) shows up, use Odin. If you have time, you may want to steal "Kyojin no Ono" (Ax of Giant) from him.
Once you arrive at the first warp site, you'll encouter Gilgamesh. (Remember that he was sent to Cleft of Dimention by Exdeath's Degeon??) After a while, he will run once again.... When you have warped twice, you'll see a treasure box on island like place (connected with staircase). That treasure box contains Ragnarok, but it is heavily guarded. The monster that guards this treasure box is called "Shinryuu" (God of Dragon) and he's stats are as follows. Shinryuu: Lv. 97, HP 55500, MP 51000, Attack Power 175, Defence Power 60, Agility 87, Evade Rate 20%, Magic Defence 20, Attribute: Holy power. As his initial attack, he will do Tidal Wave, which inflicts 6000+ points of damage. How to beat Shinryuu: I'll write this at later section of the walkthrough. (So that it doesn't spoil the challenge) If you go further into the last floor, you'll meet NecroPhobia. (Don't go straight!! Exdeath is there!) After beating NecroPhobia and saved your game, enter through the last warp zone to fight Exdeath. Around the save point, you'll rarely encounter enemy called "Mover" (It come in triplets). If you are able to defeat them, you will recieve 199ABP and 100000+ giru. Also, you can occasionary steal "Hiryuu no Yari" (Flying Dragon Lance) fom "Suishouryuu" (Crystal Dragon). Here's the stats for both of these enemies: Mover: Lv. 52, HP 10000, Attribute: Poison, Weakness: Fire This comes in triplets. Suishouryuu: Lv 62, HP 17500, Attribute: Fire, Ice, Thunder, Wind Bosses of CoD Final Floors: Gilgamesh: Lv. ??, HP ???? Just make sure to steal "Genji no Kabuto" and attack normally. There shouldn't be no problem. NecroPhobia: Lv. 66, HP 44044 Normal way to beat this boss: You must defeat all four segments of barrier before you can attack NecroPhobia. Use "shell" to minimize the magic damages, and "Golem" to guard against NecroPhobia's "Shinkuuha" (AirBlade). Quick and dirty way to beat this boss: Use same strategy for the barriers. Bahamut will also work well. Once NecroPhobia is alone, use Odin. It will kill him with high rate. It's not quick... but want to see the end of Gilgamesh!? You MUST follow these steps to see the end of Gilgamesh. Kill the barriers first. Then reduce NecroPhobia's HP to 5000 or so (by using very weak magics, I guess), but do NOT kill NecroPhobia. Wait until Gilgamesh shows up. After Gilgamesh shows up, make sure to steal the last piece of Genji equipment, "Genji Armor". The Final Battle with Exdeath I don't have Exdeath's stats handy right now. I'll update this section once I got the data.
(Round One: Exdeath)
Guard your party with "Mighty Guard" (Or use "shell" and "protesu" to everyone) and "Golem", then cast "Heisuga" to speed up your party. Use Mahouken Flare, or anyother strong magics (Flare, Holy, etc..) to attack him.
(Round Two: NeoExdeath)
There is four sections to NeoExdeath, and back two are considered to be on back row, so all physical attacks can inflict half of the damage. Make sure that you can heal your party with "Esna" at any give time in the battle. "Zeninage" works pretty well if you have alot of giru to spare.
Put down your controller and enjoy!
The multiple endings of Final Fantasy V
FF5 has sort of multiple endings and it only depends on who was still
standing(not dead, zombied, or stoned) at the time you killed
