"In the Phoenix Cave, the game actually gives a hint on the ability to save for the other parties" - it does? Drake Clawfang (talk) 17:48, June 20, 2013 (UTC)

Here are the lines from both versions. SNES version: "Split up into 2 parties. Use the Y Button to switch between groups." GBA version: "Press Select to switch between the two parties." Fenrir9 (talk) 18:14, June 20, 2013 (UTC)
The wording in the article is misleading, and makes it sound like this isn't a glitch at all because "the game hints at it". What it actually does is state you can switch between parties, it does not say you can save regardless of which party you're in. However, considering this was not fixed in any of the versions of FF6, it could be argued this is actually deliberate and not necessarily a glitch but an "unspecified feature".-- 02:04, August 1, 2013 (UTC)
Unspecified feature or not, it's bunk. If I stay at a decent hotel, does that mean you'll get a good night's sleep? RedDrgn (talk) 04:02, April 30, 2015 (UTC)
It's not at all a cheating feature. It's a convenience of not having to switch back to the party standing on the save point. People refer to it like it gives an advantage but it just saves a few seconds of time. You're still doing what you would have been able to do with a few more steps. And if you want to use logic based on reality for a game with magic, monsters, gods, dragons, and a castle that can travel underground then you're being ridiculous but I'll play along with that line of thought. If you are in a dungeon with nasty monsters prowling around are you going to pitch a tent and get a good nights sleep? If you died in the cave in real life would you be able to just pop back into existence where the "save point" is, I don't know what a save point would be in the real world hence the quotation. So its not an opinion without merit to think it was put in there on purpose. Or it was a happy accident and therefore was purposely left in the remakes because it doesn't give you a real advantage. 08:41, October 9, 2015 (UTC)
