A couple more tips for the seed rank, you have to be that
certain level to do that certain 'SeeD' test. Once your done with
29 go test once more and after finishing the 30th you won't be
allowed to take any more. and once your done with all 30 you'll
get 30,000G every time that white message at the bottom of
the screen pops up.

S-__________

The 'S' mean 'SeeD' and the number is your ranking on the right is
how much Gold your giving.

FIGHTING STRATEGIES
-------------------------------

TO BEAT MAGICAL LAMP:
To some people this GF was really hard to beat for them.
 Me, I have strategy. To beat him draw ''demi'' on him
At first they really damage him, but as you use them the hit
points will go down so you must use them wisely.
 Every so often when your life is down use a demi
 and he'll cure you, also use gf and the highest
cures you have (cure cura or curagas).
 If the draw doesn't work, keep trying.

Submitted but NOT tested By: Mark Martinez


DEFEATING ULTIMECIA:

First, make sure you have three characters maxed out in MAGIC and
VITALITY (value 255 or close).  The best way to do this is by using GF
items to learn new
abilities.  You may have to use AMENESIA GREENS if all your GF's
are maxed out. Don't bother euipping the GF command on your characters.
Instead use the MAGIC, ITEM, and a third ability of your choice (
preferably
revive, recover, and treatment).  Then use THREE STARS to teach one GF per
character the EXPEND 3-1 ability and equip it on each of your three
characters.
The best abilities to use in the final battle are MAGIC +60% and
VITALITY+60%.
Upon entering the chamber of the sorceress, she will choose three of the
six
in your party to begin the fight.  Let any character you don't want die,
and he/she will
be replaced with a new one.  While waiting, you should try and cast triple
on anybody
you want to stick around for the fight.  Once your party is set, use HERO
or HOLY WAR to
make your party invincible and then begin hammering away with the meteor
spell.
This should cause around 35000 damage per turn (except on the first
version of the sorceress)
Watch for your HERO or HOLY WAR to run out, and use it again as soon as
possible.
If you don't have invincibility, simply keep your party healed and watch
for negative status effects.
At some point Ultimecea will begin using hell's judgement, which brings
your characters to 1 HP.
Simply cure and continue with METEOR.  You may have to protect your party
against PAIN, DEATH,
and HOLY attacks.  If you don't have the spells listed, you may want to
visit the islands closest to
heaven or hell to stock up from hidden draw points.
Oh, and one last thing... have your VCR ready for the ending, it is
undeniably impressive.  Good luck!

TIP FOR TOP:

In the game, it might seem like forever when you try to build up your
levels for all your characters.  For some, this will never happen, but
with my "tip" reaching level of 100 for all your characters wont seem so
impossible anymore.  First, put Quistis in your party and drain her HP
till her HP turns yellow (critical condition).  Once she's in this state,
go to either the island closest to heaven or the island closest to hell.
These two islands are located at the corners of the world map (You'll know
your there when your enter a fight every couple of steps)and contain some
of the worlds strongest monsters.  Anyways, have everyone skip their turn
till you can use Quistis's Blue Magic Limit spells.  Then choose the
degenerator spell.  This will cause the monster to be sucked into a vortex
and instantly be killed.  This will give you around 1300 exp. points each,
which is sometimes two levels gained for one fight.  If you dont have the
degenerator spell for Quistis yet, you can!

FREE PORTIONS:

In Timber where you saw the 3 Galbadian soldiers
and the train tracks in the background there
will now be a man there. Talk to him and he will give you
a potion. Repeat this process to get as many potions as you want.

Submitted and FULLY tested By: Shadowed Face


ULTIMATE WEAPON:

On the southwest corner of the world map there is some hidden ruins that
has a place to land the Ragnarok. (This is where Bahamut can be found).
The trick to get Bahamut is simple. Once inside the ruins walk the the
center where the computer is. (Every step you walk is a random battle).
Once there you'll hear Bahamut growl and you'll get two options, so answer
the first one. You'll fight a red dragon. After that you'll be given
another two options and answer the first one again. The second one will
transport you outside the dungeon. You'll fight another dragon and after
that you'll be given two more options and a hidden 3rd option. (Note:
Sound familiar? The Shinra Mansion letter when finding Vincent in FF7?).
Of course answer the third and you will fight Bahamut.

After that you'll not only have the Bahamut GF but a hole will appear in
the ground. Now when I did it I could not enter the hole until a long time
later in the game. (After I got Laguna to hang out with the party.) I went
back to the hole later and saw a huge plant that I used to climb the down
the hole. This part is pretty tricky. Ok once your in a computer it will
say something about 2 locks, and it will show you a diagram of 20 squares
which 16 them are filled. You'll know what I mean when you see it. Now
there is a door on the floor that'll open up when the computer is
finished. Go down. Now when you get down the floor there is a computer at
the bottom of the stairs that will give you three numbers which are 4,2
and 1. Answer 2. You see a display that subtracts 2 from the 16 filled
squares on the display and the door to the next floor. Now go down and
you'll see another computer at the bottom of the stairs, but IGNORE IT FOR
NOW. There is another computer to the left. go !
!
to that computer and it will subtract 4 off of the display leaving you
with 10 squares left. (The trick is to get the number 10 twice. You'll see
how in a second.) Now the door in the center marked "0" will open. Go
inside and go to the glowing yellow computer to the right. It'll add seven
more squares to the display givin you 17 squares. Now leave the room and
go back to the computer that I told you to ignore. It will give you 3
options, 2,1 and 0. Answer 1 and the door will open that'll take you down
to the next floor. (Repeat this step for every floor down, and the final
room will take 4 Squares away leaving you the 10 again.) Now all you have
to do is make your way to the bottom and fight the Ultima weapon. (MAKE
SURE YOU SAVE).

GF TONBERRY:
.
After getting GF Odin , (needs to be after cuz of the timer involved in
needing to kill GF Odin)
carry on walking around the Centra ruins.You will be attacked by
Tonberry`s, you need to kill
around 20+ of these annoying monsters (GF Diablos (with boost) works very
well 3500+ damage) after
the last battle , Tonberry King will attack immediatelly. GF Diablos DOES
NOT!! affect this boss.
After beating him he  will join you
Good Luck!!!!

Submitted and FULLY tested By: Tony Regueira


GENERAL STARTEGY:

This is a sure way to beat any boss.  First, on the final battle of
the third cd, have every character draw 100 auras.  Next, have
one character attain immunity to Death spells.  Last, limit your
party to Squall, Irvine, and either Zell or Rinoa.  When you go
into a battle, summon Cerebus, and use the triple to haste,
protect, and aura everyone.  Next, flip through the characters with
the triangle button.  When you switch characters, you recieve that
chance for a desperation move, without expending an action.  The
only problem is that one character must be inactive at all times to
provide immediate support with cura and revive.  Any and all
damage has to be healed, and any character who dies should have
the three spells immediatly recast on him/her.  This is just about
the only method that will beat Omega Weapon.  Use Irvine's AP
shots, as they will do 9999 damage every time and can be shot
between 3 and 10 times per desperation move.  The other attacker
should be Rinoa (her final move is deadly), but Zell will do.  DO
NOT link elemental spells or holyto your attacks against Omega
Weapon.

DEFEATING DIABLOS:

First draw Demi from him, don't cast it,
stock it, get at least 15 of them.  Next you'll
cast them from magic 'till you run out of them
then just hit him 1 to 8 times with the sword
(every time you cast demi from your magic he'll do
curaga on you)

EDEA FIGHT:

When you are fighting Edea for the first time,have someone cast carbuncle.
With reflect cast on everyone, Edea will spend the entire time taking it
off of you. Just keep casting it and have everyone else attack.

SCHIZO EASILY:

 Equip the Fire Ring on your 2nd person. Then
equip the dragon Armlet on the 2nd person.
Have your people attack Schizo (Left) the Ice half until they either die
or destroy it. Make sure to cast MPBarrier on your party.
Then if your 2nd person has over 768 HP you cannot lose because every
other attack is a fire attack
and it will keep healing your second person. Watch out for when Schizo
(Right) dies because it will take away 699 on your 2nd member.

2 WAYS TO GET THE MOST POWERFUL GF IN THE GAME!:

The first way to get this GF is, when u go to the Deep Sea
Reasearch Center to get Bahamut, u must fight it then continue the sub
quest there and find Ultima Weapon. When u go into battle use the draw
comand and draw Eden. The other way(which I think is the best way) is when
ur in Ultimeca's castle u have to battle her last sevent Tiamat. In this
battle u can also draw Eden from it. Make sure if u use the 2nd way, to
leave her castle and go to the island closest to hell/heaven and battle
till Eden levels up and learns the Boost comand. When all of this is done
u will have a deadly GF to battle in the final battle, make sure u have a
healthy stock of Hero soo the bosses can't kill Eden. U can get a 100 of
them when u go and use Card Mod and use it on the Laguna card. That's all
u really need to know bout that GF. If u need help on ne part of this game

CRITICAL LEVEL;

When selphie reaches her critical level. The slots limit break will be
activated. Normally you would have to search through all the various
methods of attack but if you open the playstation lid the game freezes and
then you can take all the time that you want to select an attack. Then
once the one you want to select is on the screen, close the lid, the game
will resume and will perform the task that you asked

Submitted and FULLY tested By: Brad Anderson


EASY BATTLE:

This is a way to win all your battles easy including ULTIMECIA. 
Simply start your battle by casting meltdown on Ultimecia which will lower
her defences then throw an aura stone at the person with the highest
amount of strength or cast aura on them i used squall because on my game
he can take away 9999hp off every hit. Now that squall has aura on him his
limit break will now appear on the menu so if you have squall's best
weapon you can do the strongest move in the game the lionheart which can
take away up to 230,000hp on my game. And also to get meltdown on your
magic list you have to fight gaylas (the big white and black flying thing)
and they will drop mystery fluids. You can refine these into meltdowns but
sorry I don't remember which ability you have to refine them with. To get
aura stones just use tool refine on steel pipes which you get from
fighting wendigos. Now with the squalls limit break working well you will
be able to beat any boss in the game with ease. This strategy against
Ultimecia pretty much works on anything you battle in the
fantastic! game of FINAL FANTASY 8.

SHOPPING:

EASY TONBERRIES:

All u have to do is get the GF Cactuar from Cactuar Island. 
Then have him learn the Kamikaze ability. 
You also must have the Revive ability to revive ure character with
Kamikaze. Junction Cactuar to someone you do not want to battle Tonberry
King. Just keep using Kamikaze to Tonberries then Revive them next battle.
This worked easily for me.

TIPS ON BEATING ADEL:

Before giong into battle, make sure your characters' speed, strength and
HP are as high as possible. In your Magic inventory, you must have al
least 8 Shells, 3 Meltdowns, 3 Auras (or 3 Aura Stones in
 your Item inventory) and around 50 Flares. In your Item inventory, you
 should have plenty of 
recovery medicine (preferably Hi-Potion+). At least one of your characters
should be equiped with the Item ability and the character whom you've
junctioned Cerberus to should have the GF ability equiped. I'd advise you
that you take Quistis and Zell with you because Quistis's "White Wind"
Limit Break ability can be useful for when the party's HP is low and
Zell's "Dolphin Blow"  and "Meteor Barret"  moves can really kick the crap
out of Adel! As soon as the battle starts, the first thing you should do
is to cast Shell on all party members and then on Rinoa. Summon Cerberus
who'll cast Double and Tripple on all party members and then cast a
Tripple Meltdown on Adel. After that use the Aura to activate one
character's Limit Break (preferably Zell, if he's in your party) and have
the other two cast Tripple Flares on Adel. You should avoid using Squall's
Limit Break because he might use a finishing blow to harm all opponents
and that'll hurt Rinoa. DO NOT USE HOLY MAGIC ON ADEL, she'll just absorb
it and since she keeps sucking away Rinoa's HP, you'll need to keep giving
Rinoa some medicine so that she doesn't die (medicine's better because if
you've cast shell on Rinoa, recovery magic won't be as effective).

INFINITE GIL(A SLOW WAY FOR INFINITE GIL):

You can make a little extra Gil with Edea's letter, to board the white
seed ship.Take it too a shop and you can sell it for 125 Gil. It's not
much, but it can help if you're short on cash. Return to Edea's house and
speak with Edea again. She'll scold you and then hand over another letter.
You can continue to sell her letters and get new ones to your heart's
content. Granted this isn't a great money maker, but it's kind of
humorous.

KILL ENEMIES REAL FAST:

get 100 zombie spells, and learn levianthans recover abiality.  you can
either junction them to status attack or just cast it on oppenents to
zombify. then just cast recover on them.  the damage will say 9999 but
even if they have more they will die.

p.s. make sure the creature is a zombie or you will fully heal it.

Submitted and FULLY tested By: Jeff


MAKING IT EASIER TO BEAT ULTIMECIA AND GRIEVER:

Here's a few  things  to make your final battle a little bit easier:
1) At least 25 Hero medicine (the Laguna card can be refined into 100
Heroes). 2) About 8-10 meltdown magic. 3) At least 20 mega-elixers (the
Bahamut card can be refined into 100 mega-elixers). 4) Zell with strength
level of around 200 (or more). 5) 5-10 dispel magic. 6) 20 Aura
(preferably stones, because magic might get blown away during battle). 7)
At least three characters' HP maxed out to 9999 (Zell included). There
will be a total of 5 monsters (4 of whome will be different versions of
Ultimecia). You won't be able to use Demi on any of them, except for the
first version of Ultimecia. They will all be easier to beat if you bring
their vitality down to 0 with meltdown. When fighting the second monster
(Griever), once you've cast meltdown on him, have Zell attack him as much
as possible because a single punch from Zell can deliver upto 9999 damage!
Cast aura on Zell and make it all the better (his most effective moves 
are Dolphin Blow and Meteor Barret). Also, Quistis's Twin Homing Laser can
cause some MAJOR DAMAGE! Once you defete Griever, Ultimecia will junction
herself unto Griever.
 Beat this creature using the same technique. The fourth monster will be
 Ultimecia and "Helix". Don't waste your time trying to fight any Helixes
 (they won't attack you, they'll just magnify Ultimecia's magic). Finally,
 you'll fight Ultimecia while she's absorbing any and all existance.
 You'll need to use your invinsibility items because she'll use "Hell's
 Judgement" on you, which will bring party members' HP down to 1. Good
 Luck!

DROPPING ULTIMECIA IN 10 ROUNDS ** TOTAL **:

Equip all your 3 main players with as many Mag + %% as you can.
Give autopotion to another, and get rid of every potion but mega-elixir.
(They will use this on the final ultimecia that does Judgement.

When you first get into combat, get rid of the other 3 players
that you aren't using.  When you have your 3 good players, cast triple,
haste, regen, shell, and protect on them quickly.

Then start hurtling triple meteors indiscriminatly.  Heal only when
you are below 3-4000 HP.  (Everybody should have 9999)

I took out the first Ultimecia in 3 attacks of 3 meteors.  Then
the first Griever I took out in 2 rounds.  (Cast Doom on one player)

2nd and 3rd Griever I just rained meteors before he could hit me
very much.  Healed to max for final Ultimecia.

Rained more meteors (each hit out of 10 it does did around 1000-1200 each)
and let the mega-elixirs heal me when she did Hell's Judgement and
eventually took her out in less then 4 rounds.

After this sit back and watch the cool ending.

just in case you should follow this strategy! Sorry about all the 
talking!Ok, If you have an aura stone/magic this is most important!
first have someone cast an regen on Rinoa, then use an aura on squall,
Then if your trigger is not on auto get a perfect combo this will increase
the damage, after you get the combo keep pressing the R1 button then you
know the rest! And make sure you don't use a GF or kill Rinoa with any
specials!!

ADEL EASY:

to beat adel easy, make sure you already have the ability "recover".
Have Squall at level 55 or so and your two friends around level 20-30. Get
the lion heart and start the battle.  Cast aura on Squall and use
renozuken on adel, using recover on Riona after each time he steals some
of her life.  As soon as your finisher for renzokuken is the lionheart
attack, Adel will lose.  Even if it is your first time getting it beccause
his level is the average of the 3 people you're using at that time.

When in battle, have Selphie on your team and have her H.P on yellow. Keep

and then use powerbreak ability on the last enemy and untill he does very
little or no damage. have everyone using accumulate and the mony healing

jp to master that job classor very very near to it.this is an easy way to

100 HOLY WARS:

To do this you have to have completed the CC Card quest then 
all the CC members will be on board the radorandak with all your
missing cards. Then you can challange the card king (Quistis)
in the airlock. If you have the gilgamesh card use the card mod 
ability to get 10 holy wars from the gigamesh card. As long as you
don't have the Gilgamesh card in you deck the card king (Quistis)
will always have that card in her deck. It's simple win gilgamesh
card, card mod it (I suggest you save your game) then play Quistis 
again. Repeat prosses until you have 100 HOLY WARS and a gilgamesh 
card on the side. (A holy war makes you inviceble for about 3-5 min
in a battle.)

GET ALL MAGIC

1.on the 1st disk, goto the 2nd garden where you get Irvine. go
upstairs where you sit in the room to find out about seifer supposedly
being dead and keep talking to the guy on the wheelchair infront of the
reception door(make sure you keep moving in his way so he floats off the
chair, then talk). once you have talked to him loads of times and he has
left the screen. go in the opposite direction off the screen so that you
go into a new one. go back and you see the wheelchair guy. again keep
talking to him until he leaves the screen. he will eventualy say 'have
this and LEAVE ME ALONE!'. you will see yourself draw something from him.
you get 100 of each magic! very helpful when you are still on the first
disk. I HAVE TESTED THIS MANY TIMES AND IT IS NOT MY GAMESHARK TING AS I
TOOK IT OUT AND DIDNT USE IT BEFORE I SAVED IT!!! I STARTED IT AS A FRESH
GAME!

2.when you go to fishermans horizon and you get to the mayors house,
enter it and keep tapping X around the walls(check every part!!!).
do it on both 1st and 2nd floor and you will find an Ultima draw
point! keep leaving the house and going back to that same draw point
until you get another set of Ultima. if you get fed up of doing it,
then do the mission of saving the FH, and when you come back, find the
draw point again(remember to check all floors and all walls) and you get
more Ultima. leave the house and enter it again and you will get loads
more. when you have 100, it is good to put it all on ELM-ATK or DEF!! it
helps alot ! ! ! !

FINDING A NEW GF OR SUMMON IN THE GAME:

Secret G.F. "CLOUD" 
To get "Cloud" take Irine and Zell with Selphie to the missile base and
avoid battle as long as possible until you have to fight the guards. You
must have got the G.F. "Diablos" and his ability "Mug". Use this on the
guards to get X-Potions but if you use this on the red guards then you
will get an item that appears "????" in the inventory. Use this agaist the
large blue Machine Boss at the end and it will blow it up imediately. Kill
the guards after the Boss and you will receive a "Buster Sword". This item
summons "Cloud" from "Final Fantasy VII" (Who uses Omnislash on the
enemy). Use this item on "Odin" when you fight him in the Shrine and when
Seifer kills him at the end of disk 3 you will get the G.F. "Cloud"
instead of "Gillgamesh". "Cloud's" attack is the brilliant "Omnislash" (he
can't learn any abilties, so go back Timber and visit the Petshop or the
Itemshop in Estar to buy Abilty Scrolls for him)

EASY BEGINNING:

when squall and quistis first enter the world map give each of them a gf. 
ur goal is to have quezacotl get summag 10,20,and 30%.  also card and
thunder refine.  to get this fairly easy before fighting ifrit go to the
beach on forest.  on the beach are fishs that give u 6 ap a pop.  in the
forests are t-rexs which give u 10 ap a pop plus a lot of exp. hint: when
fighting t rexs use shivas, he is weak against that.  when u are on the
field exam(dollet) and are at the communications tower u will fight biggs
and wedge.  they are easy.  after them u fight a flying thing. draw siren
from him.  after this u fight the spider robot.  this is why u got sum
mags 10,20,and 30.  u also want boost.  whoever is 1000 compatibilty with
quezacotl should be the only one that attacks.  use the gf and boost its
attack on the robot.  when it falls on the ground zell will tell u to run.
dont. use the gf two more times then run.  u will gain 50 ap for "killing
it".  it actually only has 5000 hp per battle.  u can repeat this 7 more
times by getting caught by the creature for a grand total of 400 ap!! at
the end.  if time starts to run below 3 minutes. though get out of there. 
keep in mind that u will lose points to ur seed ranking if u keep gettin
caught but it is not that much.  good luck.

RANDOM RULE:

simply modify all the useless cards and voila each time you play a card
game, u only get the g.f and player cards which is quite good as this way

EASY AP & EXP:

when you are in the school controled by the sorceress and are worried
about how litttle damage you'll do against her, seifer or cerbeus then
hang around on the hockey pitch and you will fight 3-4 hockey players.
they each give 3ap and after each battle you nearly always get a level up.
they are easy to kill with under 1000hp and their max attack is 900 (with
me, you may be on a different level(i was on lv26))All you have to do to
kill them is cast a gf and they all die. the first time i did it i was a
little dissapointed at how easy in was, but it is an exelent place to wait
if you are weak and need more exp you also get 1-6 hi-potions ( +1000hp)

HAVE FUN WITH SCAN ON YOUR OWN PLAYERS:

to do this a couple times, at different places, (which
is fun), you must open the menu, go down to 
CONFIGURATION, and switch SCAN, from once, to always 
(doing this, you can do this over and over, with lots 
of fun). Make sure you got some Scans stocked up. Then
get into a battle, (make sure there is no time limit, 
that'll be a killer) select magic, and go to scan, 
instead of scanning the monster, move the curser over
and select one of your players. You'll learn something
new about them, but, something i found out recently,
is you can zoom in and zoom out, make the characters, 
run, and i heard you can make them do there attack.
What you do is to zoom in, hold both R1 and L1 buttons
and press the down button, this will bring the character
closer, press up, push it away, and so one. Hold R2 and
L2, you will make your character run, hold 
both R buttons, to make him/her return to their normal
postion. If you find anymore koo stuff about this, 
please e-mail me. thanx.

ULTIMATE GF:

The ultimate GF is diablos at lv.100 because he takes away damage %
equivilent to it's level. The way this works is when he is at say level 9,
he will take away 9% of their health. The bad thing is you can NOT do more
than 9999 damage this way. :(

BEAT EDEA & SEIFER IN 4 HITS MAX !:

When you fight Seifer at the end of disk 2, make sure that you have
Diablos Junctioned to Squall and make sure his compatability
with Diablos is at its highest. Have one of the members of youre 
group have HASTE. once you start fighting Seifer, have that member 
cast haste on you, once that is done, use Diablos on him and it will deal
about 5,000+ HP damage to him. Once you have defeated seifer, go down to
the auditoreom to fight Edea. When the battle begins Seifer will jump in
again(Poor fool...:) to help Edea. just do the same thing again to him and
he should be defeated in less than 2 hits! Once that is over with you will
fight Edea. Cast Haste on yourself again and use Diablos 4 times and it
will deal about 4,000+ HP damage to Edea!       

Submitted and FULLY tested By: apumpa


HOW TO GET EASY EXP AND AP:

Go to island of hell/heaven, put Diablos's enc-none ability on, collect
all the magic you can. Once you get 100 ultimas and full lifes, put it on
you defense for elemental, and you'll absorb the magic by 40%, so lots of
magic won't hurt you. Then fight monsters, use aura on quistis (having her
on low hp means she may die straight away by the monster)then use
degenenrator so the monster dies straight away. This can help you get rare
items. If you go into battle with a malaboro then let yourself die, so you
get rebirth flame, so you can kill him straight away with quisists
degenarator, since you couldn't before because you had beserk, snd silence
and all that stuff. Go to Cataur Island, put auto-haste on Squall, not
other members cos they often miss the cactuar, and have his strength very
high so you kill them with one swipe.

A NOTE TO GETTING THE KING OUT IN THE CC QUEST:

after defeating Xu, talk to nida(garden driver) on the commander room and
then talk to Doctor in the infirmary and then you HAVE TO have quistis as
part of your team (go back to the save point in dorm and use switch in the
menu to put quistis in) and examine the bed to ask them to leave. exam the
bed again to take a rest. quistis will then appear in your sleep. if you
are already alone or have other members in your group, quistis will not

DEFEAT FINAL ULTAMECIA EASY:

Get as many rare cards as possible and then using Quezacotl card mod
ability turn them into items. You can get 100 mega exilers from one of the
cards. Then refine auras from magical items using the status magic
refining and make sure you have Cerberus. Early in the fight cast
Cerberus. Then when you fight the final Ultemecia cast aura on squall
 and just use Renzokuken and lion heart. When Ultemecia uses hells
 judgement
use a mega exelir. That way you`ll recover easy and just keep squall high
on aura and health and after a while she dies. Simple!

SECRET DRAW POINT AND FH HISTORY:

In FH go along the wooden jetty and speak to the young boy fishing. Keep
talking to him until he gets the hang of it, then go and talk to the old
man that gave you the occult fan (down the old ladder near the entrance to
garden). Walk with him and learn all about the history of FH and
Esthar.When he's finished say you don't need him to escort you, then go
back to where he was sitting. Here you will find a draw point containing
(I think)full-life. Have fun.

THE EASY WAY TO BEAT THE ULTIMECIA/GRIEVER BOSSES:

first u have to use ur card refine and refine bahamuts card, u should get
100 megalixers. second make sure that ur 3 strongest people have health
higher than 7500, aswell as have if not there best weapons close to them.
now the easy part, when fighting seifer for the last time {before u fight
adel} dont even hit him just draw aura from him and keep all ur people
healed so none of them die. after ur four armed man comes and gets rid of
seifer go and kill adel. no the really easy part. remember those
megaelixers i told u to get well save them until u get to ultimecia cause
u will need them. if u have diablo's enc none this is the time to use it.
{it saves u from having to fight anyone but the mini bosses in the castle.
u only need to beat 4 bosses for item,limit break,save,and magic. when u
get to fight ultimecia just use the 3 strongest from ur people let the
rest die, now listen closely this is a real humdinger. lol. most likely
she wont pick all ur strong people at once, dont freak out, just fight her
like a regular boss and evertime she makes ur one or two strong guys lose
power or she uses maelstrom just use a megalixer and continue pounding her
u should keep this up until griever kills all ur weak people with the
shockwave pulsar so by this time u should have all ur strong people now.
all u have to do is make one person use aura on the team, another keep
everones health up and the other use limit breaks on him and he should be
done in no time. {if u need help deciding on who is gonna do what hows
this, zell keeps health up on the team, squall use aura, and irvine use
limit breaks. his ap ammo takes 9999 a shot, so it would be quicker with
him just keep this up for the whole fight and in no time u will be watchin
the most unusual ending in ur life. i know i have done it and seen it

LOTS OF EXP:

First put quina in your party and have the invincible or a gold chocobo
not the Hilde Garde 3.  Go southwest of the Lifa Tree to find a big
island.  Go there to fight Yans.  Although they look like sheep a comet ot
two could kill you.  It also uses snort which blows one of your guys away.
 Use Roulette with Quina (Eat a hecteye zombie) with luck you will kill a
yan or two.  Finish the rest off with other attacks like Zidane's
thievery(Steal Alot), Freya's dragon's crest(Kill alot of dragons), or
even shock.  Quina's frog drop is good too (Eat ALOT of frogs).  Save your
game before attempting this....

KILL TONBERRYS VERY EASILY:

Make sure you have these things:
                                  Card (the attack ability)
                                  Diablos (He packs a wallet so make
                                  sure he has boost) revive and or
                                  recover Kamikaze (GF cactar has
                                  this)
Ok so what you gotta do is make one person use Kamikaze. Remember NOT
to equip the revive command to him. Now use the card ability. If you
must use diablos. Now in the next battle use the revive. Use kamikaze
again.Now do what i said before. * STAY IN ONE AREA. DO NOT GO OUT TO
SAVE. YOU MUST DEFEAT ODIN OR ELSE THIS IS A WASTE OF TIME* Now when
you get to about oh say the 15 battle get rid of Card and Kamikaze.
Now use diablos until the tonberry king arives. By the way I dont know
if you need treatment. Oh one last thing use Kamikaze if tonberry king
really pisses you off. Thats all but if that doesnt work, I dont know
what the hell to do for you.

EASY EXP:

All you have to do is have the Kamikaze and Level-up ability, and a
pheniox down(just in case) 1)Find T-Rexuar in the forests around
Balamb Garden. 2)When you find him, Level him up as much as you can.
3)hit him with Kamikaze.

Submitted and FULLY tested By: Squall


HELPFUL STRATEGY TIPS:

There are some not-so-obvious advantages to keeping
your levels down. For example, when you get to disk
three, the Deep Sea Research Center is a piece of
cake: the Enc-None ability actually works below the
steam area. In addition, you can exploit Catuar's
Bonus Abilities to their max. But how can one build
up his GFs without experience?
To begin, you'll notice that Seifer is in your party
for only a small portion of the Dollet exam. This is
the key: KO Squall and Zell, then use Seifer to boost
the experience of your Gfs to their max. Even if
Junctioned to a KOed character, they will still reci-
eve EXP. and AP. By the time you're done with Seifer,
you should have:
All GFs maxed out levels
Most (or all) abilities learned
Firaga, Thundaga, Blizzaga, Curaga, Dispel, and Bio
magics to junction to your stats
100 Normal Ammo
100 Potions
Lots of Pheonix Downs
Quite a bit of good stuff, and your levels didn't
go up! Makes you stronger; enemies weaker.
To avoid unnecessary EXP, use Diablos's Enc-None and
Quetzacotl's Card abilities to avoid battle EXP.
On Disk Three, Edea can do the same thing. Fight
mostly Mesmerize monsters. With Tonberry's Sell-High
and Call-Shop, with Carbuncle's refining abilities,
you can convert Mesmerize blades into Mega-Potions,
which sell for 7500 apiece. For some strange reason,
when you start making more and more money, your rank
goes up.
To avoid having to get Odin, you can kill a few Ton-
berrys, exit, save and then go back in.
If you want rare magic or items, us Tonberry's Lv UP
and LV Down abilites.
When you're all done on disk four, put Quistis, Squall,
and another character in your party. Junction Cactuar
to Quistis and give her four of the five bonus abil-
ities, along with Bahamut (for Ability X 4), and a
GF with Initiative ability. KO Squall and the other
character, then use Degenerator limit break. When
Quistis is done, bring one of your comrades back to
life, Junction him like Quistis, and keep using Degen-
erator. Then bring in each character at a time, making
sure to Junction Cactuar with abilities. Your team
should now be very powerful.

REFINING:

Refining your player and GF cards.:
On disk 4,(if you have defeated the CC group), play the trepe girls
preferably the one on the left while on board the ship.  Play her
until she abolishes the plus rule.  This will take some time.  Simply
save it once it is completed. Now you can refine your rare cards and
simply win them back from her. This is good if you want all of your
party and thier GF's to learn some of the best abilities in the game.

RINOAS HISTORY:

During the missle base scene when you have to split up , there is a
rumor that if you put Rinoa, selphie and quistis in the party to go to
the base , when the guards are taking a break they will ask you to do
them a favor , Rinoa will protest and say how lazy they are on the
job. After you fight them , rinoa will fall unconsious and a scene
appears where it explains her whole history before the game.But thats
nly what I heard , figure it out for yourself!
