FFX-2 Dressphere Location and Uses Guide

There are A total of 14 normal dresspheres and 3 Special dress sphere, The normal ones realte to the jobs you would usually get in an FF i.e black mage, white mage ,warrior ect, ect
The 3 Special dress spheres are the closes thing in FFX-2 to limit breaks and can onyl be accesed after cylcing through all the drespheres on your current garment grid
Anyway onto the Dresspheres, DS

In alphabeticle order

Alchemist
When: Ch 2, 3 and 5

How to get:
There are three ways to obtain this DS

IMPORTANT
Make sure to talk to clasko and invite him onboard in CH1 or Ch2 or else the Dressphere  is out of your grasp


Method 1
A) During the 'Foggy Fiend Frenzy' sidequest in CH1 talk to Clasko (!After he has been told to show you the way!)
B) After the Sidequest 'Foggy Fiend Frenzy' Return to the Savesphere at the entrance to Mushroom rock and look for clasko on the right of the screen talk to him and choose the 'More the merrier!' option
C) Then in CH2 during the 'Cuckoo for Chocobos' Mission in Mi'hen clasko will help you
D) After killing the boss enter the screen infront of the agency and invite Clasko and Calli onboard (!Calli will only come if you obtained the chocobo for her!)
E) Finally go to the Calm lands and complete the 'Cleap Sweep' sidequest in the 'Faculty ruins' (Old monser arena)
F) After the misssion Clasko hands over the Alchemist Dressphere


Method 2
A) If you didnt do the 'Foggy Fiend Frenzy' or forgot to invite Clasko onto the airship in CH1 Do not fear you can still get the dressphere!
B) Find him in CH2 in the screen just before you enter the ravine in Mushroom rock
C) Talk to him and he runs off, if you havent done the 'cuckoo for chocobos' mission in Mi'hen yet he will apear and help yuna just before the boss
D) You will have to make it to the bos in the time limit, afterwards invite Clasko and Calli onboard infront of the agency (!Calli will only come onboard if you have the chocobo for her!)
E) If you have already done the 'Cuckoo for chocobos' mission he will be in the calm lands in CH3 Complete the 'Clean sweep' Misssion and He hands over the Dressphere


Method 3
A) if you ninvite Clasko on board in CH1 or 2 but dont go to the calm lands in ch2 he'll jump ship in CH3 (Do they have parachutes? or strong legs?) do the mission and you'll get the Alchemist dressphere

Uses
In my oppinion after some hard AP gaining the Alchemist is one of the best dresspheres in the game, with an endless reserve of mega-potions, x-potions and ethers this Dressphere is easily one of my faves
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Beserker
When: CH3

How to get:
In CH3 Complete the 'Protect the agency' Sidequest in macalania

Uses
I dont use this one very often and tend to stick with my alchemist and 2 dark knights team, BUT this dressphere does boast the 'evade & counter' and 'Magic counter' Abilitys which makes it a very useful dressphere indeed
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Black Mage
When: CH1

How to get:
Not really misssable you get it during the stroyline after you've beaten boris and talked to shinra to view the sphere

Uses
I use this one quite alot and it is usually this on (or warrior) that I master first as the range of magic moves can come in handy during tight situations, thoughI find it ineffective against later bosses
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Dark knight
When: CH2, CH3 and CH4

How to get:

In CH2
During the 'Infiltrate Bevelle' mission, you get to the screen 'Bevelle labyrinth' its after the screen with the huge spinning machinery, go towards the wall which will fall away and reveal three lifts. Take the left lift up, above climb onto tboth parts of the floor that have been raised to acces the final lift, DONT TAKE IT, Go south until you fall to the screen below. use the middle lift to go to a switch climb onto it and 2 pillars will arise on another screen, go back down. Now ride the right lift to the upper level, then take the left lift back down. Rid the middle lift again to reach another switch and the final two pillars will rise , ride back down. Then take the left lift up and then final lift to get to the upper upper level. there is one main path and a path yopu can jump down to the eft of the mian path take that path and open the chest, The darknight dressphere is yours!

In CH3 (New Yevon)
If you chose to give the sphere back to New Yevon you have acces to this area of bevelle all CH3, just follow the above method

In CH3 (Youth league)
If you gave the sphere to the youth league you only have access to this area AFTER the besaid and Kilika hotspots but BEFORE you beat the boss in Djose

What I did was have all gunners, full HP in the start of the battle, equip Cat Nip's, Perdirton's Flame brings them down to critical, Trigger happy, 9999 HP every hit.  :D

At least thats what I did, whats your strategy?

okay, I am confuzzled ???

Paine has mastered the Dark Knight Dressphere, and she is level 47 doing ~2000 damage to Angra.  She has 150 STR with command belt and wristband equipped.

Yuna has mastered Gunner, but is equipped with Dark Knight and almost mastered that (Just Black Sky and Charon, then she has mastered the DK dressphere).  She is lvl 46 with 125 Strength and two muscle belts equipped.

Rikku is using Alchemist (she is learning Mega-Phoenix) and spamming stashd Mega-Potions, with a phoenix down when needed.  She is lvl 47 with Tetra Bracelet and Schmooth Sailing equipped.

All three girls are using the Tempered Will GG (which doubles HP when passed through green gate.)
