If there's one thing you guys have taught me in the past 3 years of playing rpg games...it's this....NOTHING IS RANDOM. Everything happends when it's suppose to.

For those of you watching my FF4 LP....my persistance has FINALLY paid off!!!!!



It seems that I've made a great discovery. If I am not the first to discovery this, then please forgive me. But something like this would have been well known by now, since everbody wants the Pink Tail.

There seems to be a fixed way to encounter the 8 Flan Princesses in the Lunar Ruins. This of course makes getting the Pink Tail a little easier. Even though using a siren in the final level is faster, fighting 8 flans is better than fighting 5.

This all started with me running away from them by mistake in Part 24. That was the first time I ever got this encounter. I looked into this a little deeper, because they started appearing more often after this. I made a discovery while I was playing this in my car on my lunch break....

It seems like the first encounter is rare,( Appears about 30-60 random encounters). However after this, they will appear after 5-6 random battles. This works after 5-7 times, then you must reset(or quick save) and repeat. Why this over siren in the final level?? Because you fight 8 of them.

To prove that this works, I showed multiple un-cut encounters. I hope it works for all versions. I hear there are different versions of FF4 Advanced. Try it out and let me know what you come up with.

So I have no life..I know. Playing my game while driving??? But all my hard work ended with an incredible discovery..and a bonus for my efforts!!



This gives me hope that there may yet be a way to crack rare drops as well.

I'm uploading the movie to Youtube right now, but due to my slow connecton, it will take a few hours. I'll edit in the link here when it's ready.


Update: Here's the movie. Enjoy!

Extremely happy for you DK. ;D I'm not watching your LP sadly(barely have the time to watch any with my current classes), but I know how much of a pain that is to get, and I've never gotten it ever. Congratulations. ^_^ I'll watch this coming episode just because I want to see your reaction in its entirety(the facebook preview wasn't enough! XD)


SwordStealer is my twin from across the country! ;D

This is awesome
Yesterday I just got my first Pink Tail ever. If we get to know, how to manipulate the stupid RNG for rare drops, I might even get more of them :P
Nice ^_^

For some reason I already have a Crystal Ring. Why is the piece so good?

It's a 1/64 drop from those Red/Crystal Dragons. This is the strongest defensive accessory in the game. It blocks confuse, sleep, paralize, and boost defenses and evasion. It also raises agility by 5.

Personally, getting this is the ONLY way to get Rosa to reach 96+speed so she reaches the pinnacle speed and 19 attacks. This is why I must have it!!

This is a 1% steal in the DS version, but it doesn't do all this stuff there.

Do you have your imp summon yet Pete? xD

Well, I I find myself actually spending the 30+ mins watching your FF4 LP DK.

It really is fun and that sound warning thing you did for the last one is really really helpful sometimes. You defnitely should do that more often. My mom thought I was watching porn some other time, watching your videos. I am not sure but it should be assasin's daggers :P.
Nevertheless..... Awesome, getting rid of the sirens xD

Well Done Darkkefka!!!



You just have to put your fingers like this!! It's freaking easy! ;)

nope
not even a single time
I remember my cousin getting the stupid summon three times in three different playthroughs before child rydia
and NOT hunting for it
that's just unfair
