Yes, Dual Horn was the name. I got quite a few Game Overs while fighting them. :'(

I got a shock when one Dual Horn's Gore attack killed Auron outright. I knew to use Dark Attack/Power Break from then on.

Frankly, my biggest problem was lack of MP until Lulu and Yuna learned Osmose. I wish there was an easy, early place to farm Ethers.

I don't worry about equipment that can only be bought (that's how you get the Def equipment right?) until Mushroom Rock Road. If you save your gil and lend Oaka 10,000, you get a BIG discount on Stonetouch and Initiative weapons and powerful armour at Mushroom Rock.

I think the thing that got me most there was the Bomb + Dual Horn battles and trying to decide which to go for.

"Are sins.. ever forgiven?"

"I've never tried"

Blind the Dual Horn then let Lulu destroy the Bombs. That's what I did at least.

Usual its not worth it to give him any money though. The discount only applies to his stock at Mushroom Rock Road and the amount of Gil you need to spend to earn back you loan is probably more than you have at that point in the game.

According to the Piggyback guide you need to spend 23,336 to make a profit. I spent roughly 30,000. The gil was from training for the mid level black mage spells.

Where abouts do you train around that point in the game, also an interesting point, what grid do you send Khimari down, I tend to go for auron or lulu what about you guys?

Talking to everyone on the Mi'ihen Highroad usually nets a load of Sphere Levels for me. Everything else I do at the end of Mushroom Rock.

As for Kimahri, I teach him Haste off Tidus' grid then reroute him down Auron's path. He's a few points weaker but much faster that way.

Get him Steal and Use, otherwise he is pretty much useless. Steal for the LVL3Key Spheres against Biran and Yenke :D

I've played the game way to much times, so I usually tend to speed things up. With that I usually barely have enough gil to just give O'aka his 10.000 gil, at which point he's just a waste of gil :P

Also for Kimahri I tend to route him through Tidus path to give him haste, then go back to the start through Rikku's path. After which I finish off by learning him some basic White Magic. This can be done quite easily using the expert sphere grid and its really useful to have a second character who can use items and heal status effects during battle. For the rest I only use Kimahri for the occasional stone breath, after which he falls back to the background again.

Might actually be worth picking up my save on the Japanese version again for this occasion :D
