« on: September 14, 2008, 09:38:27 PM »
Are there any ways that can guarantee zanmato without spending loads of gil?

training training and training my boy.

Basicaly sad Yojumbo's attacks are based on five factors.
- The amount of Gil you pay him (the higher the better)
- The amount of Gil you have in total
- You're relationship with Yojimbo (see below)
- You're opponent's Zanmato lvl (how well is you're opponent resistance to zanmato)
- Yojimbo's Motivation (how much did you pay him to join you're team, overdrive yes/no)


You can "manually" increase and decrease Yojimbo's motivation
IncreaseDecrease
Yojimbo uses KozukaYojimbo uses Diagoro
Yojimbo uses Wakizashi          Directly dismiss (of paying him 0 gill)
Yojimbo uses ZanmatoDies during battle
*I can't remember the exact amount of points you lose/gain with the actions sad above*

So basically his motivation goes down if he attacks, dies or dismisses? Those are the only moves i've ever seen him do. And i saw somewhere that if you constantly pay him either 1, 10 or 16 gil he does it almost all the time. Is that true or is it made up?

Basically sad if you have the patience and gill to make sure he attacks a lot with an other attack than Diagoro his motivation will keep on increasing. If it is high enough he will do a zamato for little gill, but I guess you can never 100% guarantee he will.

I believe that story can be true, my best friend also trained his yojimbo and when he summons it to a low zanmato lvl monster he always get a free zanmato, though this free attack only works with monsters that have zanmato lvl 1. For the rest he only pays 100 to 1.000 gill to make sure he gets a zanmato.

I don't know how high you're relation with Yojimbo is, but the dark aeons have the highest zanmato lvl possible. Which would either need a high relation or much gill to compensate :-\ Those dark aeons have always been a real pain in the ... :P

Ah it figured someone would have made a guide for it. I guess it goes more into the details than I did, pretty handy ;D

That's a shame. I was hoping it would be 1 or something low. Oh well. Thanks again for all the info guys. I understand more now. But i have to escape from ixion's 2nd form by airship otherwise i'm dead. Found dark magus sisters and know where dark yojimbo is (can he use zanmato too?) but i have no idea where dark ifrit is. Can someone tell me?

Go to bikanel desert and go to the entrance to Home. You can't enter that place, but you do find an suspicious person there. I don't know the exact way to trigger Dark Ifrit, but just talk to everybody in that aria

Also, if you want the New Game + Glitch, you don't want to fight Dark Ifrit yet.

I even believe I've heard that Glich only works in the Japanse International version. Which makes my European (international) version useless
