It's been a while since I got a FAQ done, and I have fallen in love with this 
awesome remake of Final Fantasy IV DS, so I figured I'd give it a shot. 
Hopefully this turns out better than my FF4 Advance FAQ.. then again, that game 
sucked. ;)

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

It's always a joy to write about these game basics, let me tell you. ;) I am 
just going to give a quick rundown of the menu and battle systems, since this 
game adds in some stuff that I did not know about at the time. And I spent 
several hours pissed off at the annoying auto battles because all you could do 
was attack. Now the game is a lot more fun that I know how to set up auto 
battles! It pays to read the manual, kids. ;)

-----------
MENU SYSTEM
-----------

When you are in control of the character, push the X Button to bring up the 
menu screen, and you will see several options to choose from.

INVENTORY: Pretty basic stuff here. You have three options here. USE will allow 
you to use a usable item, obviously. Like a Potion for healing, or a Silver 
Apple to increase a character's maximum hit points. SORT will automatically 
sort your items on their usage. Healing items on top, weapons and armor towards 
the bottom. KEY ITEMS will list you key items. Here is where you can give an 
augment to a character, as well.

MAGIC: Again, pretty self explanatory. Here, you select from one of your 
characters, and it shows the magic they can use. If they have usable magic 
outside of battle, you can also cast it from this menu.

EQUIPMENT: There are three options here. EQUIP allows you to equip a weapon, 
armor, etc. individually. REMOVE allows you to remove equipment from a 
character. OPTIMIZE will automatically give you the best equipment, statistics 
wise, for a character, but keep in mind that sometimes this isn't always the 
best idea.

ABILITIES: A very awesome new feature to this game is the abilities menu. Now, 
you can equip pretty much any five abilities you want on a character. Also, 
there is an auto battle slot where you can equip an ability that the character 
will use automatically if you put the battle into auto battle mode. For 
instance, you can select SUMMON -> DRAGON with Rydia, and she will 
automatically cast the Dragon Summon during the battle. The neat thing is, you 
don't have to have the ability equipped to use it in auto battle. For instance, 
you can have Rosa Pray automatically during auto battle, but use her Pray slot 
in abilities for something else you want.

STATUS: This shows how much experience points the character has, their 
experience needed to level up, their current abilities, the abilities they 
know, and their vital statistics.

PARTY: This allows you to switch characters around, and also invert the rows. 
For instance, you can have 2 people in front/3 people in back, or 3 people in 
front/2 people in back.

SETTINGS: This allows you to change battle mode between ACTIVE (enemies attack 
while in menus) and WAIT (they'll be nice and wait). You can also change battle 
speed (1 IS FASTEST!), the automatic movement between walk and run (I like 
running, it's faster), and whether or not the cutscenes have voices and 
subtitles or not.

QUICKSAVE: This allows you to save anywhere at any time. The game automatically 
quick saves and power off, and you lose the data when you reload the save the 
next time.

SAVE: This allows a hard copy of the save. You can save at any save point in a 
dungeon, or on the world map.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Here is where I talk about the characters for a few sentences for some reason 
or another.

                                    -----
                                    CECIL
                                    -----

*********
STORYLINE
*********

Cecil is a Dark Knight and everyone thinks he is a bit of a jerk at the 
beginning, including himself. (Note this may or may not be entirely accurate.) 
But he redeems himself soon enough by becoming a SPOILER and going back down to 
level 1, so I wouldn't waste too much time leveling up at the beginning of the 
game. I'm also pissed off they took out the Dark Wave attack from Final Fantasy 
IV SNES/PSX and replaced it with Darkness, but overall he is clearly the best 
character in the game.

*********
ABILITIES
*********

   Darkness
   -------- 
   Doubles his attack power, 10% hit points taken off with every attack

   Cover
   -----
   Takes damage For another character if they are in critical hit points.

   White Magic
   -----------
   Allows him to cast some decent white magic spells.


********
ANALYSIS
********

As he is the main character, he is clearly the best character in the game, as 
you may expect. He starts off as a Dark Knight, and his attack power and 
defense will carry you through the first part of the game when you mostly have 
weak mages. Like I said above, don't spend too much time leveling him up when 
he is a Dark Knight. When he becomes a Paladin on Mt. Ordeals, he starts off on 
level 1, but his statistics are great for a level 1 character. Just level him 
up to 15-16 there and you will be amazed by how awesome this guy is for the 
rest of the game.

Towards the end of the game, you will want to give him Draw Attacks, Counter, 
and Kick. This turns him into an extreme badass and makes leveling up very 
easy, because he will take every single-target attack and counter with his 
strong physical attack. You can even set Counter -> Kick up and have him 
counter every attack he gets with a strong attack to every enemy in the battle!

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The first thing you will notice is that the Red Wings song is totally awesome. 
Those of you that remember it from the SNES/PSX days knows how epic the song 
is, and the remixed version in this DS version is just as impressive.

The second thing you will notice is the game now sometimes will have 3D 
cutscenes. 3D CUTSCENES! And the characters talk! And don't sound totally gay 
like some of the characters in certain other Final Fantasy games that will 
Tidus remain nameless for the Balthier sake of niceness.

After a long opening cutscene and some character conversation where Cecil will 
question why they had to take a crystal from helpless Mysidians, the king will 
banish Cecil from the Red Wings and give him a weird named thing to give to the 
great people of Mist. (Oh yeah, there's also a battle with two Floating Eyes in 
this opening cutscene, but if you need help with that, you'll probably also 
need this advice: don't stick a DS up your ass. It might hurt.)

+--------------+
+ BARON CASTLE +
+--------------+

You now have control of Cecil, and your main objective is to go to your room 
and rest, but we can do a few things first. Also, the Baron Castle song is 
pretty cool as well, if I do say so myself. Another new feature you will notice 
is a map on the bottom of the screen. This incredibly useful feature will show 
you a map of the floor (no duh) as well as all the treasure chests you can 
find.

In this room, you will notice you can't do much of anything, so go down to the 
next floor, and now you will see three treasure chests you can pilfer. Let's do 
it! It's on the east side of the room, and to get to them, you must hit the 
switch on the wall next to it. The chests contain an ETHER, TENT, and 480 GIL. 
Hoo boy, you're rich! Let's go buy some booze and drink our problems away!

On second thought, let's just go left and out of this place. This next section 
is just two sets of stairs, one on the left and one on the right, and we're 
coming from the stairs to the right, so let's take a minute to figure out what 
to do. I'll go grab a diet coke. Okay, once you're in the next room, you'll 
meet the next character that's of some importance (you can tell because she 
gets an overdone introduction that says her name AND her job class). She is 
Rosa, white mage, and future mother of Cecil's kids. Once they're done talking, 
proceed downwards, and on the next screen, go up, and you'll meet ANOTHER 
important character.

Wow, four important characters five minutes into the game. Final Fantasy IV 
moves quicker than a cheerleader on game night sometimes. After he is done 
talking, go up to the tower on the left, watch the hilarious cutscene with the 
namingway, and proceed up to the second floor. Talk to the maid who will tell 
you your room is ready, and watch the following cutscenes. You'll end up with 
Cecil and Kain. Time to leave the castle!

SAVE YOUR GAME ON THE OVERWORLD. You don't want to do all of that crap again.


+-------+
+ BARON +
+-------+

Unfortunately, the town theme in Final Fantasy IV has never been one of my 
favorites, and the remixed version here is disappointing as well. This is a 
basic first town of the game. Inn, weapon shop (locked, though), items shop, 
etc. There are a few hidden items here, so let's get to them.

Inside the Inn, you'll find a POTION near the entrance in a pot. Go up the 
stairs to the next floor, and it's another switch-wall thing. Hit the switch 
and collect the rewards on the other side: GNOMISH BREAD, EYE DROPS, and TENT. 
There's no need to rest at the Inn yet unless you got into some battles on the 
overworld map, and I did not tell you to do that so I sure hope not! 

Go north towards the top part of the town, then head down and to the right. 
You'll see a person walking around, walk past this person then go left. Follow 
the path to get PHOENIX DOWN x2 and a GOLD NEEDLE.

There's not really much else to do in this town, so let's start leveling up in 
the overworld!


+-----------------+
+ BARON OVERWORLD +
+-----------------+

The cave you need to get t is west and north, across a bridge and in between 
some mountain ranges, but I would take the time and level up about two or three 
times just to be safe. Also, buy some gold needles and potions in Baron if you 
feel like it. There is one particular encounter in this overworld that drove me 
nuts the first two times I started this game up, and that is the battle with 
four Cockatrices. They will cast Beak, and this is a slow Petrification that 
will turn your character to stone in 2 or 3 turns. If you get ambushed or get a 
few unlucky misses, this can cause a game over. Keep that in mind and save/rest 
often as you level up. When you are ready, go northwest to the cave.


+-----------+
+ MIST CAVE +
+-----------+

Get used to this dungeon song too, you'll be hearing it a fair bit throughout 
the game. It's not terrible or anything, though. Namingway will become 
Mappingway now and will inform you of another awesome new feature that was 
first introduced in Star Ocean 3, but was a lot more annoying then, map 
completion. Basically, you start off each floor of a dungeon at zero percent, 
and if you map the floor completely, you get a reward. The rewards increase as 
you progress in the game, and if you get 100% on every floor of every dungeon, 
you'll get a special augment at the end of the game called Treasure Hunter that 
is incredibly useful if you plan on seeking out rare items.

This area is basically one straIght path with very few intersections for a bit, 
but make sure to map every nook and cranny so you can get the reward at the 
end. Start by going right and then heading up the stairs, then going left and 
then up. You'll hear voices in your head, they talk to you, they counsel you, 
they understand. I like Randy Orton, ok? Moving on.. get the POTION and then go 
right for an EYE DROPS. Go down some steps and then left for a TENT, then go 
right and down for more mysterious voices and a POTION. Heal up and go up to 
face the boss of this area.

**** BOSS FIGHT!!! *****

|-------------------------|--------|------------------------------------------|

The boss theme is a doozy as well, I rather like it. Okay, this is the first 
boss of a Final Fantasy game, so as you may expect, it's basically a tutorial 
battle of sorts. Then again, they really increased the difficulty of the bosses 
in this game, and I've heard people have had trouble against this boss, so 
don't go in thinking it'll be a totally easy fight, and you should be okay.

Cecil should attack and Kain should Jump, but keep in mind that in a few turns, 
the Mist Dragon will turn into a mist-like form, and counter with a powerful 
breath attack if you try to attack it. So, just heal and defend while it is in 
its mist form, and have Cecil cast Darkness as well. When it goes back into its 
dragon form, keep up the attacking (Kain can just attack at this point) and it 
will die before it turns into mist again, more than likely.

**** END BOSS FIGHT ****

Go up and get the reward for map completion (POTION x5), and then save in the 
overworld. Go right to the village of Mist.


+------+
+ MIST +
+------+

When you enter this place, the Carnelian Signet you got earlier from the King 
will light up and set this place on fire! You'll watch a few scenes here, as 
well as entering a battle you cannot win, and you will end up in a desert with 
a new character, Rydia. She is weak so make sure she is in the back row when 
the time comes. For now, just go northeast to enter the town of Kaipo.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

You have questions, I have answers.

Don't forget to send any questions you have for me to penguin_faqs@yahoo.com
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Is this the definitive version of Final Fantasy IV?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I happen to think that it is, although some people may disagree with me, and 
that's fair as I can see where they are coming from. The graphics could use 
some work, I admit, but the updated music was a welcome addition. I love the 
new augments system and how they increased the boss difficulty by giving them 
new tricks, so people like me who have destroyed the game a billion times can 
still find some challenge in it without simply needing to level up more. The 
voice acting is awesome, the challenge has improved enough, the new map 
completion system is awesome, auto battles FOR THE WIN, and overall I think 
this is a terrific remake and probably the best remake of a game that I can 
remember off the top of my head.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. Augment system? What's this? Can you really only use them once?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes, once you give a character an augment, you lose it for the rest of the 
game, so basically keep that in mind when assigning them. The key to getting 
new augments from characters that don't stay with you at the end of the game is 
to give them augments you already have before they leave. If you don't give 
them any, you'll get one from them. If you give them one, they'll give you two. 
If you give them two, they'll give you three. It really adds a level of 
strategy to the game, but unfortunately newer players who don't know who's 
leaving when will need a guide like this one, or wait to new game plus.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. There's a new game plus now?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There sure is, and you carry over your augments from one playthrough to the 
next. Therefore, you can get certain augments in the next game, and the 
following one after that. Unfortunately, Square only lets you play new game 
plus twice, for a total of three playthroughs. This is to prevent your 
characters from being too overpowered, which I think is lame but whatever. 
There's new bosses in new game plus too, but no extra dungeons like in Final 
Fantasy IV Advance for GBA.

There's lots of secrets that old time players remember but new players won't 
know about, and there's lots of stuff Square added for this remake. Come here 
to find the secrets behind Final Fantasy IV DS, including side quests and good 
places to level up throughout the game.

Side quests are optional. Me writing for them is not. Such is the joy of a FAQ

section started and Cecil added, walkthrough started and complete through Mist 
Cave, FAQs started and added in 3, boss guide and shopping guide updated as 
walkthrough dictates, bestiary started and updated through 003. I am just glad

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my FAQ/Walkthrough for Final 
Fantasy IV DS. I have not done a FAQ in quite a while and I hope this attempt 
was good enough for you. This is basically my third time writing for this game, 
but this remake was outstanding with all the new stuff they added, as well as 
the throwbacks to the classic game of old (You spoony bard!). Hopefully, I 
added in everything that I needed to, and hopefully you will be seeing more 
from me soon! 

Until next time,
Psycho Penguin
