Daily Update Thread: What did you do in FFIV today?
« on: July 30, 2008, 04:26:22 AM »
Well, I got the game, I already have a level 47 part except for Cecil who is 50. I have Cecil, Kain, Rydia, Rosa, and Edge in my party. Going off the updates in FFXII with hat thread, I'm starting one for FFIV DS(although the older versions are up to discussion of course as well).

Today, I went back to the Underworld, found Cid alive and well, and had him fix up the Falcon. Now I've begun exploring the Sylph Cave, saw Yang, and then went to the Eidolon Cavesto explore a bit too. Once I reap my stuff, I'm off to the Sealed Cave to Continue with the story.

Also, know this is my first playthrough (sorta) well, I've never gotten this far, never past Baigan and Cagnazzo before, well, it's somewhat harder(and easier ???) on the DS, but the 3D-ness is awesome, and those scenes are amazing when they voice act.

I am playing the Nintendo DS version.

Today, I got 2 Goblin summons, cleared the Lodestone Cavern, defeated the boss there with ease, and in progress of clearing the Tower of Zot.

Nice, let's see... the Tower of Zot... *tries to remember* what happened there? XD I'm at Sealed Cave like I said, so I've been through the the Tower of Babil...I'm getting the two mixed up. DX Oh by the way, how was your Cognazzo fight? And your levels currently?
Oh, never mind, it's in your sig XD

I always overlevel (yes, I'm a huge victim of it in MANY games :-[)

My Cagnazzo fight was fairly good, which never gave me any trouble at all, even though I restarted the fight a few times due to Augment or equipment issues. I had Tellah use Thundaga, his Ice Staff, and cast some buffs on my party (Blink, and Shell), Porom use Cry, Slow, and Blink on the party, Palom use Thundara and Bio, Cecil cast Protect on everyone, Cura when HP is low, and attack if possible, and Yang just use Attack and sometimes Focus.

I cheated a bit once, because I had a Soma Drop from one of Whyt's Training games, Rydia's Mathemagic Minute, which I have many 9999 scores on, and one of them gave me the Soma Drop, which I used on Tellah ;). That enables him to cast Meteor! ;D
Meteor also 1-shot KO'd Baigan, but not as strong as Twincast Comet, which dealt more than 9000 HP to each part  :o

That time I used Meteor and twincast Comet to reduce Cagnazzo's HP to when he retreats into his shell, and just pummeled him after that for an easy win.

Wow, and yeah I remember now about the Tower of Zot.

I'm known for going into fights with no strategy at all and somehow still winning miraculously. (ie: my DANIPEBS Tiamat fight)

I don't wish to get off topic though ;D Currently I'm a bit stuck on Demon Wall. I have Rosa casting Hastemarch(I gave Bardsong to her) and had the rest go wild. Cecil and Kain have the complete Diamond set, plus nice weapons(some axe I forget). Rydia has similar equipment, along with the Chain Whip, and Rosa has the Elven Bow with Blinding Arrows, Edge with a Kotetsu and some other weird named katana. Still failing  with the wall though :( That's why I'm off to level maybe to 55-ish and the Eidolon Caves, and then try again.

Also, though this may be off topic:

Right now I'm stuck on Barbariccia. I won the first time with Kain surviving with 148 HP. I didn't want that :(.
I got too aggressive, and Lightning just massacred my party.

Update: I just DEMOLISHED Barbariccia, with Focused Yang hitting 2946 on her, and Cecil and Rosa finished her off with the Twincast spell.

Barbariccia was very easy for me, but long and repetitive. I had Cecil, Yang, Kain, and Cid attack, while Rosa did a Cura every time, using Ethers as needed. When she died, I had Cecil spam Cura and Cid PDown Rosa. At that time, mostly everyone except the newer people had over 1000 HP, so they could take some pain. And then of course, Kain jumped every time Tornado went into effect in order to cancel it.

In the past hours, I leveled a few more levels, that's about it.

Out of a matter of curiosity, does Rydia's mathemagic minute game appear in FFII SNES?

Nope, all the minigames are DS exclusive I believe. :)

Also Whyt, Proto Babil, Geryon, Onion equipment, tails other than Pink, Rainbow Pudding, Namingway Sidequest, and Augments are not in FFIIUS.

EDIT: Double-posted by mistake :-X

Today, I'm focusing on getting the Cockatrice and Mindflayer summons, and getting the Rainbow Pudding. That's why it's taking me so long to continue the storyline.

Also, trying to surpass 8000 on Kain's High Jump Hijinks >:(

EDIT: Finally surpassed 8000 points twice, once just barely (8030). Top score is ~8500

I'm playing the GBA version and i just started a Perfect Game

I'm leveling Kain before Mist Dragon while trying to get Goblin and Cockatrice summons. With his level higher, I'll be able to max his stats easily without needing to worry about other characters losing their proper bonuses.

woot

Make sure not to use any Hermes Sandals, Bacchus Wine, Spider Silks, or any Hourglasses, as they will ruin the perfect game.

Today I defeated Bahamut, before he got his countdown to 2, and am in progress of clearing

That's where I'm stuck, fighting the 4 fiends at once :( You fully explored the Slyph and Eidolon Caves though right?

I buffed at Scarmiglione, and then took care of things from there, watching out for Barbariccia's Maelstrom, and attacking with Edge and Cecil.

Yes, and I have Sylph, Leviathan, and Asura in my summons repertoire.

I found the new scene in FFIV DS, but I won't explain it.

nevermind my last post...with those terrible drop-rates for rare items I'd never finish a perfect game

instead I'm doing Solo Cecil Cheapskate

Rules:
- Only Cecil may fight
- Cecil may not fight unless all other party members are deaded
- You may not spend any gil in shops or inns
NOTE: I might add No Escaping to the Cheapskate part, since that loses money sometimes. It depend on how I fair after becoming a Paladin and being left with only Iron Armor.

Progress:
Since healing items will not be plentiful, I need to utilize my "free inns" until I get access to healing pots and such. I trained before Mist until 13, then I was healed after the Earthquake. I'm training now before taking Rydia to the Oasis town because that will result in a free rest too. When i'm a reasonable level to take on Octomammoth, I'll proceed as fast as I can through the caves, utilizing Tellah's free Tent. Hopegully i can get by on my limited Items.
