lots o hints
Half of the time, when you see a wall, see if you can go thorugh it, it usually leads to a secret hallway, which leads to a secret room, which leads to a treasure! Or treasures! When you get to the Ancient's Maze you should be able to find Greater Demons these beasts can summon Iron Claws to help them fight. Kill the Iron Claws when they appear do not kill the Greater Demon. Keep killing the Iron Claws. If all four of your people are alive you should get 1900 EXP for each Iron Claws you kill and when you decide to kill the Greater Demon you get 4000 gil and 2850 EXP.
Use 2x antartic wind for your hitters steal for theif aero for white mage and any magic for black mage he is easy to kill. First put summoner with ALL SUMMONS Magus with ALL SPELLS and Devout with Cure Cura Curaga and Curaja and Reflect at least and a Dragoon
Use reflect on Xande and cloud so haste and protect boost your guys (boo to xande and cloud) cloud uses bad breath so hold ribbons draggon hold genji shield may slience so if Devout is silenced chances of winning are nearly nil
Devout use curaga or curaja to heal dragoon use jump summoner uses bhamut and leavihten(hope spelling is correct) Magus use flare and firaga until he goes down(Standards Stratagey I call it)Use standard on all bosses and you should win all of them. Towards the end of the game when yuo have found the last crystal before to crystal tower go to the Ancients maze keep running around until you find a greater demon.
Keep guarding until he uses "summon" he will summon an iron claw which for each you kill you gain 1900 XP. After yuo dispatch of the iron claw keep guarding until it summons another. Using this technique, I got all four of my characters to level 99. You have to have access to the Crystal tower to do this. I also recommend doing this with a single character. OK, here it goes...
Get your character to walk around until he/she enters a battle. Do this until you get into a battle with monsters called Bluck (they're purple and have weird whisker like things). Kill all of them EXCEPt for one. Now, just guard until it summons a Kum Kum (light purple hooded thing), kill the Kum Kum, and guard until the Bluck summons another Kum Kum. A lot of the time, you won't need to guard because the Bluck will summon Kum Kum's several times in a row. Just do this until you feel like you gained enough experience (I gained 1.5 million with one character in 20 - 30 min). You might also want to switch your character to a Black Belt so you can get to 9999 hp. I don't know if this is in the booklet but get a dragoon in you're team and use jump on a flying type. I have done it and did 9999 damage when I was level 38. 1) Go to moogle mail anyone
2) Save game and shut off
3) Turn on game and at the ds start up menu change the ds clock one hour ahead
4) DS will cut off automatically
5) Turn on and mail someone else
If your just starting a game, ask a buddy who has mastered some jobs to send you some job cards. It can boost your attack or defence with the specialization items.
Begin this battle by hitting him with Reflect so it's Protect and Haste spells will boost your guys instead. (Although this will bounce your own black and white magic back at you, it won't bounce Summon spells.) Stay in attack mode and this shouldn't be a problem for you. After you slay Xande you'll face the Cloud of Darkness in a scripted battle; don't waste any items during this unwinnable fight. On the dalg continent go (with natilius) and dive at easternmost tip (were it looks like this )
Then dive. You should find a passage. Follow till you see an oval. The go up. Go left then park. You should be next 2 a city.(be4 you do this save up a lot of gil.) then go inside. There will be a lot of blk mages. Talk 2 them, and they will sell you spells. (lvs 3-7 white and black magic, 1-5 summon.) use these spells to heal urself, and fight doga/unei. I hope I helped!!! ^_^p.s. Use at least 1 healer and 1 blk mage. Use 2 meele. In northeast saronia, (outside of the floating continent), go to the back of the inn. Then go strait north, to a trio of trees.
Press "A" on every tree. One of them will have an elixir. Ok I've done this so I know it works. First get 4 Dragoons and get them all to level 40 or so (both job level and normal level). Evaryone should have the best lances anr armor possible (depending what part of the game your at, I did it with Dragon lances and Diamond armor).Then go to Bahamut's Cave, on the floating continent. It's west of Gyashl village. (You will need the Invincible to get over the small mountains). Get to the part where you go outside, and begin the battle with Bahamut. Have everyone use jump. If at least 3 of your characters do not get into the air by the time he attacks, then you need to go train some more. When they come down, they should all do near 9999 damage to him. Then repeat a few times until he dies. If you die before he does, just get up 5-10 more levels and try again.
I'll have more hints/cheats soon, for many of the newer FF games. Please rate my hints/cheats!!!!!
Ok if you got the game and you need gil just follow these steps and you should have more than 1 millon gil
1.get a hi-potion
2.go to menu and then to items and put the hi-potion either to top-left or top-right corner
3.go to battle
4.now when fighting go to the item action and highlight hi-potion
5.now press up on the control pad and A at the same time
Note:you should see a curser hand on a player luneth,arc,eta
6.press the B butten and go back to the item action you should have one more then before.Example 2=3,4=5
7.keep doing this and untill you have atleast 60-70 and sell all but 1 hi-potion
Note2:dont go over 99 hi-potions or you will freeze and/or lose your game data
Ok, to duplicate an item put the item into the top left or right (it doesnt really matter) of you're items section and then get into a battle. Go to the items menu in the game,go to the item yu want to duplacate (like I said top right or left).
Press up and the A button at the same time (if you did this right you will see a little flash of your weapon and shield) then press the B button so you don't use the item insted then go back to the item menu and you will have another one of that item.
You can repeat this process as many times as you like just make sure not to go over the 99 limit or you might end up with a glitched game. I mean as the screen messing up. Game freezing alot... Only way to fix it is to erase the file and make a new.
The way that jobs level up is that it is based on actions taken. For instance a character taking 5 actions a battle will have their job level increase faster than a character taking only 2 actions a battle. An easy way to level up jobs is to fight a battle, guard 9-10 times (these will count as actions), then finish off the enemies. You should have everyone's job level increase every time you do this.
