Also, the espers were taken from older FF games,
Spoiler (click to show/hide)


Mateus is from FF II and Famfrit is the "contained" form of FF III's boss.

Then there's the Lucavi (FFT)

Belias
Hashmal
Cuchulainn
Zalera
Ultima
Addramelech
Zodiark (Edlidibs is a kinda of a FF III nod himself)

Shemhazai is the only new one.

It is possible to obtain a Golden Amulet BEFORE Raithwall!

-Did you know that in Vanish Status Omega Mark MK II won't see you unless you go under him?
-Did you know that if you have previously chained monsters before Omega Mark battle he'll drop the same chain level?


Take care to get what you like or you will be forced to like what you get.

Did you know Omega MK XII is the only other way to get a Mythril Sword? You probably did...:P

FF12's Victory fanfare is the remix of the original from FFI?

1. Did you know that there is a zoning-method to spawn Etherian in Cerobi Steppe?
2. Did you know that Zu in Ozmone Plain gives you 1 Lp in "Fields of fallen wings" and 2 Lp in "Dagan flats", even if everything else is the exact same with this monster.
5. Did you know that the Rabbits in Ozmone Plain and Giza Plains can heal you?
7. Did you know that it is possible to fight Aeros on the other side of "the shred"?
8. Did you know that lowest possible Clanrank is "Fledgling member"?
The one's I left I knew about. Now about the one I bolded, isn't it "Moppet?" or is it called Fledgling Member in other versions?  ???

Did you know the defeating Humanoids is the only enemy to obtain gil?

-Did you know X-zone is the only status effect that can't be healed without a safe/teleport crystal?
-Did you know the Demon Walls are the only enemies in the game that can cause it?
-Did you know Reks doesn't gain any experience points?
-Did you know you can make Ring Wyrm circle around a rock endlessly by running around that same rock in big circles, and while the rest of your party is shooting it apart? It won't attack or even use restore!
-Did you know there's only one Wildsnake in the entire game?
-Did you know you can't spawn ghosts and garchimerae after you've done the Palace quest?
-Did you know you can kill Deathgaze using three Magicks?
-Did you know you can kill the entire Shiva crew? I mean that they will stop appearing.
-Did you know you can equip Basch with a spear in the game really early, but still see him using his Mythrill Blade in the cutscene with Marquis Ondore?
-Did you know Bergan died because the nethicite on his bones fried his body from the inside?
-Did you know you only see Larsa's victory pose twice in the entire game if you don't take him to secret boss fights?
-Did you know you can't go further in the Zertinan Caverns in the beginning of the game?
-Did you know the characters battle stances with spears and guns are almost the same except Fran's?

The fight raged on for a century
Many lives were claimed, but eventually

Actually, you can. From Split Infinity's guide:

024 - Garchimacera
PLACE OF ENCOUNTER
"before escaping from Barheim Passage"
Garamsythe Waterway / West Sluice Control
/ No. 10 Channel
"after escaping from Barheim Passage"
Garamsythe Waterway / No. 10 Channel
SPAWN CONDITIONS
It can happen that you didn't kill enough Garchimaceras first time through and now you're wondering how the heck to get them to appear again. Make sure [No. 10 Channel] is flooded, while [No. 11 Channel] must NOT be flooded. From [Central Waterway Control] go into [No. 11 Channel] and then the long way around to [No. 10 Channel]. There are your Garchimaceras so kill them to complete your entry.

026 - Ghost
PLACE OF ENCOUNTER
"before escaping from Barheim Passage"
Garamsythe Waterway / West Sluice Control
/ No. 10 Channel
"after escaping from Barheim Passage"
Garamsythe Waterway / No. 10 Channel
SPAWN CONDITIONS
It can happen that you didn't kill enough Ghosts first time through and now you're wondering how the heck to get them to appear again. Make sure [No. 10 Channel] is flooded, while [No. 11 Channel] must NOT be flooded. From [Central Waterway Control] go into [No. 11 Channel] and then the long way around to [No. 10 Channel]. There are your Ghosts so kill them to complete your entry.
Just wanted to be a nitpick. :D

Yeah, I knew about all of those that you guys posted...

And Vega's right on the Ghost / Garchimera.
Took me a while to figure out on the 1st PT, but I found them eventually. Useless explorations that turn out to be not-so-useless FTW!!!!

I'm going to give Zertinan Cavern's a try. I'll do it with Penelo in your party. I went in there my 1st playthrough(my 2nd game over.  :'()

Try doing that while you're in the Ogir-Yensa Sandsea with the crew, that just might work. I've wanted to try out that theory, but I've borrowed my FFXII to a friend of mine (his brother broke his).
If you do that, you might be able to get Addrammelech before Belias! :o
Oh, and you can enter the ZS, but only one room of it, the road is blocked by a pool of quicksand.

The Imperial Guards block Ogir-Yensa at Westersand pre-palace.

Hmm I guess I can try it after the Palace with Balthier, Fran and
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
.

If the Imperials don't guard the Ogir-Yensa after the palace, I can probably try to get to Raithwall.  8)

If it doesn't work, I'll try it regular storyline. and see if I can defeat Adrammelech before Raithwall. The chances are low though unless I have at least Level 3 quickenings for all my characters.

I was able to defeat him once with one quickening and a Black Hole Concurrence.
