Well, I got 2 Goblin Summons but still no Cockatrice

and I've got to max Kain's stats now or else it's going to make everything later MUCH too difficult to manage

at 200 or so EXP per battle...how long until Level 99?  ;D

any idea?

LOL for the dolls, I got all the way to the last mini doll, and then they formed into the big one. I defeated that, and got down to the last one, and, one hit from being killed, it comes back again! >.< So I lather, rinse, and repeat until it falls. :D

Well... now I'm starting to regret attempting to fight Proto-Babil, since I want Fast Talker on Cecil, and the Bravery spell.

Also, the issue of who's going to tank Proto-Babil's Globe 199 and Babil Laser attack is still going on, it's leading to Rydia.

Nope, he has only 400 000 HP :D but he has a lot of multihit attacks up his hands ;)

The idea is good for long explanations and walkthroughs that require lots of details, that's why I support this idea in the first place.

What monster is this! AHH!

BTW...I need help killing Golbez, I get past the dolls, and then when Golbez kills everyone but Cecil, and Rydia comes to save him...within two turns I get a game over.

If you have Kain jump before Golbez kills everybody, he won't die.

I could be wrong.

You are right, but the timing of Jump is a little tricky, because he's slow to get his "Hahaha" text going in this version :D

Hmm, it must be his Bio and other -ara spells that must be killing you. Have Kain Jump a few moments after his turn pops up, so he avoids the Black Fangs from the Shadow Dragon. Buff up Cecil with Shell and Haste, have Slow cast on Golbez quickly.

Have Cecil cast Cura after Rydia arrives, and try to revive them if you can.

This monster I speak of is one of the two superbosses ;)

In most FFIV Boss fights that are really hard, (including the Golbez "superboss" fight) my patter usually goes like this:

I'm at full health, but see how strong this guy is and I go, "Oh crap, this is impossible."
Next, I set up the healer always Cur(a)(ga)-ing no matter what, just to be safe. I have 2 people attacking and the other reviving, buffing, and attacking when available.
Next, things start to go badly, and the huge attacks force some of my members to about 13 HP. :o
I put all my efforts into healing and restoring the party, and then in the end, come back up to the top HP.
Finally, I dish out my strongest attacks possible from everybosy, and somehow, that always does it. I win. ;D

Really edge-of-the-seat for me ;D Although recently boss fights have been much easier. But that's how I started off.

Today I merely just leveled, I'll update my sig tomorrow I guess.

Haha, I just 1 shot KO'd Leviathan with 3x Focus and Adrenaline Cecil :D dealt around 36k damage.

Earlier I did that to Asura with ~43k Ultima with Adrenaline (Critical HP on both Rosa and Cecil)

Oh if only I had someone to battle my Whyt... I renamed him CuSith :D

I can access Proto-Babil now, I used my Dark Matter and let myself die :D
I tried a serious attempt on Proto-Babil, and Ultima did like 15k damage (was at 65-70s) before tons of Pyroblasts came, Kain died too much and lost a lot of Phoenix Downs and Elixirs, but Bubble sure did save me from his Laser Barrage counterattack.

I defeated Geryon quite easily... though Cecil died to a 7890 melee attack :o!

I'm solely working on the Augment part of my Board FAQ, it is nearly finished! Just hang on there ;D

Wow... I've never misplaced things that I can't find, I hope you find your DS soon!

I levelled my party to the 90s now, thanks to Red Dragon money grinding and getting 2 Green Tails today.

Lol I tend to do it quite often, although I haven't done it once in about 4 months :D I'm not as disorganized as i used to be.

Congratz, I'm still on Game 1 and weaker than you XP

I've obtained Excalibur.

Well, at least I'm not the only one! ;) How did your DS break? :o I didn't know you were playing FF4 as well, you never posted before :P

It fell of my drawer during a earthquake and broke. The card wasn't inside or else I'll need to buy another FFIV.  :P  :-[

I've had a similar situation with my PSP (kept dropping it, and no earthquakes in Toronto :P), and I had to manually fix the screen.
I bought my DS nearly 2 months ago for the Final Fantasy games :P

We're steering a bit off-topic here, and I'll go for the rest of my Green Tails and 4 more Yellow Tails tomorrow, but if I reach level 99, I'll immediately go after Proto-Babil... after I save of course ;D.

UPDATE: Friday, August 22, 2008, 5:47 PM EST

I nearly defeated Proto-Babil, but the last Twincast was a Pyroblast >:(
I was demolished by endless Divine Judgements, and my Ultima spells were doing 86k damage >:(


UPDATE: Friday, August 22, 2008, 6:17 PM EST

Proto-Babil finally went down! My Ultimas were cooperating with me, and I didn't get anyone KO'd when it went down! I'm so ecstatic right now ;D

YAY! Congratz! I found my DS too! I'm taking a break from my original file, and playing a New Game on the Second Slot for fun. Who knows, it may end up better than the one I already have at the moment. Just defeated Mist Dragon. Darkness is nice.

Still haven't beaten Final Boss T_T I have trouble healing and fighting at the same time. But It'll go down soon enough, I'm leveling quite a bit, and I'll update my sig once I beat the game.
