All you wanted to know about the Legendary Blacksmith

Locations of the Legendary Blacksmith:
Ur - She's in the well
Sasune Castle - East Tower floor three
Healing Copse - The place you arrive after jumping away from Bahamut
Gyshal - She's in the Chocobo Pen*laughs*
Dwarven Hollows - Entrance to subterranean lake
Saronia Castle - Basement level two
Ancient Ruins - Find her in the Inn
Village of the Ancients - Find her in the Inn
Replito - Find her in the house that is the farthest to the North
Doga's Village - By the giant tree
Okay now...how do I find her in those place you might ask?Ahhh...I was getting there!
Now what frustrated me for ages(not really...a day or two...but still!!! >.<)was how to locate the woman...and Im sure some of you saw my purported theories earlier...and one of them...was indeed correct!Her location is entirely random(town-wise) But!If you want to change her location to a place your in...well grab the speedy airship...and find two towns close together...travel to one of the two
Now!She is in a town, when you leave the town her location changes...so if she wasnt in the first town you visited(if she was...give yourself a smiley sticker) travel to the other town, look for her...if she isnt in the town...leave and travel back to the first town you visited...look for her...if not...I think you got the gizt of it by now...repeat until you find her.
*Some things to note*
You cannot recieve the Job Items UNTIL a few things have happened, them being:
1. You have to have entered Eureka(not traveled through it...just entered it)
2. That means Unei and Doga must have already been defeated.
3. This ALSO means that you need to have defeated the Titan and gotten the power of the light from the Crystal of Earth.
4. This one...maybe...just do it to be safe...Use the other key to open the way that leads to the summit of the Crystal Palace.
If all of those(maybe not #4) are the case...when you next travel to Falgabard, she should be in the town...and she will temper the Orihculum into your first Ultima weapon. Woohoo!
Now how to find the lvl.99 job items?
Well if all of the above criteria has been met...there is one more qualification...and two things to note.
1. A character must have a job at lvl.99(if not...you CAN still find her!...but she'll leave...making all your hard work for nothing*yes, I stated the obvious...but SOME people...*)
2. That character MUST have the lvl.99 job set
3. Finally, she will only give out one Thing per meeting...meaning that even if 4 characters have a lvl.99 job(thats set)...she will still only give you one item per meeting...
dang...I went through ALL that freaking effort...and guess what?I decided to go look on the net to see if I could find out the names/stats of the weapons recieved...and guess what some dude already wrote a walkthrough...and gave permission to post it elsewhere...oh well here it is...Im still keeping my parts above...that was hard work on my part!!!
