About Final Fan 12...[edit source]

The biggy in that game is to find ways to accellerate the beginning of the game by unlocking loot enhancers (the number of times you visit certain merchants and read the notice board unlocks the lost grimoires)and rolling up lots of kill chains to gain a lot of points and valuable loot quickly.

Over time people have posted up here and there about terrific shortcuts to play in the opening game when the main character is the only one in the party: Where to find and steal huge upgrades in the first weapons you have (the 'ROD' first, then the 'GLADIUS'. Next a superior katana can be looted from the werewolves to the south of Rabanastre. (see: Fast level up opportunities)

Fast level up opportunities: Critters that can be killed easily for their loot, especially if they regenerate, that are worth a lot of points.

CHAIN hunting (or Chain Looting) is a profitable way to gain loot but also gains (in the beginning) 1 LP per kill - no matter what the monster is! So since killing lots of low HP critters earns the same amount of LP as big bad monsters - and since the loot dropped begins to contain HP and MP after a certain level - chain hunting is the fastest way to COMPLETELY fill in the lisences from the very start of the game....

And a lot of the stuff in the green part of the board builds up the characters fighting abilities and curing capabilities... I always block that part of the boards out first!

Once the other party members are found, they join at about the same level as your main character, and with as many LP's stored away. But the XP for every kill after you have more than one party member IS DIVIDED BETWEEN THEM.

Oh yeah. That means you can never make as many levels as you can right at the beginning - or as fast.

So the biggest and best exploits are right there at the front end. They set up all of the play after4wards...

Text Box[edit source]

Hi drake - Sorry its me again.]

Just needed a bit of general help.

1) I cant seem to understand how to work these text bubbles. How do make a template like in the FAQ TacticAngel made his own template and im not quite sure how to.

2) How can you customize your 4 tildes (~x4) like people such as Yuan or Likeacupcake have?

Thnx a lot in advance.

Coolawits 17:03, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

hi drake i like your walkthroughs and i want you to know that your "the after years" walkthrough doesn't appear on the walkthrough page.

P.S. i believe that Sephiroth is overreated too!

Textbox[edit source]

Hi Drake.

Further to my previous message, I've found out how to do a text box but something is wrong with my coding. Can you check it out and see what is wrong. Click on this to see the template page.

Thanks a lot.

About this thing[edit source]

Hey what does this thing mean? Does making this thing also included in Final Fantasy Wiki:Manual of Style? How come some users use this thing? Oh, one more thing it doesn't have any contents. SicaPrishe 05:54, August 2, 2011 (UTC)


Gosh sorry about the quotes, should really pay more attention to what you're doing. o_o There's a quote there where Gilgamesh says "sparkle sparkle little twink" wtf hahaha does he really? Last I didn't know what the hell is a "twink" and put it in Google I just got a lot of gay porn. Then I thought hey now I know gay slang. Haha "little twink"...this'll amuse me forever.Keltainentoukokuu 12:08, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

Just Stuff[edit source]

Hi Sorry to bother you, and you don't have to do this if you don't want to, but can you please check out mine and Coolawits' stuff please? there are my Dissidia movesets (I admire yours by the way) and his overall Dissidia stuff / FFXVI stuff. I would really appreciate it if you take a look at them (again, you don't have to but it would be greatly appreciated). Also, can anyone at all vote in the Soul Shrine or do you need permission to or something? Thanks for looking at this :).

Question...[edit source]

Sorry to bother you but I have alot of free time on my hands and I recently purchased Final fantasy IV the complete collection. I wanted to add some of the battle sprites but I am unsure how to rip them from the game. Could you help me.

No, I can't. Doreiku Kuroofangu 18:31, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

Howdy, stranger[edit source]

Long time, no see. How have things been around here? How are you? I popped onto the IRC earlier but I didn't recognise any of the names there, if you're ever around, drop me a message! - Paramina 21:13, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, I'm always around ;p. Things have been okay around here, mostly uneventful since all that's going on is Type-0 stuff and the occasional scrap of 13-2. Doreiku Kuroofangu 22:15, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

Fanarts in the Wiki[edit source]

Hi, Drake! Sorry to bother you (and sorry about my English) but I have a question and I don't know many regular editors besides you. There's a lot of fanarts in BC's articles, or in BC-related articles. Is it allowed? Shouldn't the uploader/editor at least put a description in the images as "not oficial"? Thanks for the help!

What images would those be? Doreiku Kuroofangu 01:48, August 21, 2011 (UTC)
I think he/she means the BC portraits...that were recently uploaded.Clarent-text.png 01:50, August 21, 2011 (UTC)
Yes! Like Bugenhagen, Zangan, Deneh, Tifa's Cat, that spy from AVALANCHE that hooks with Rude...

Netherith has already dealt with this then. Doreiku Kuroofangu 17:22, August 21, 2011 (UTC)

I see... well, some of the fanart are still on (like Bugen and Zangan), but thanks anyway, Drake (and Netherith).

FF9 Ending "Speech"[edit source]

I think the "speech" in the end is spoken by two people. The first part is most definitely by Mikoto as you can see her on the screen when it the text is displayed (she is walking by the Iifa Tree roots), but then in the latter part the tone changes and the text is displayed on black screen, not over any scene that would show who is speaking.

"Kuja... What you did was wrong..."
"But you gave us all one thing... Hope..."
"We were all created for the wrong reason, but you alone defied our fate."
"We do not want to forget this. We want your memory to live on forever..."
"...to remind us that we were not created for the wrong reason - that our life has meaning."

After this the screen fades to black, and next you have a scene with Vivi's "son" meeting Puck in Alexandria. And after this you get the "second part" of the "speech", which I don't think is by Mikoto anymore.

"I always talked about you, Zidane. How you were a very special person to us, because you taught us all how important life is."
"You taught me that life doesn't last forever. That's why we have to help each other and live life to the fullest."
"Even if you say goodbye, you'll always be in our hearts. So, I know we're not alone anymore."
"Why I was born... How I wanted to live... Thanks for giving me time to think."
"To keep doing what you set your heart on... It's a very hard thing to do. We were all so courageous..."
"What to do when I felt lonely... That was the only thing you couldn't teach me. But we need to figure out the answer for ourselves..."
"I'm so happy I met everyone... I wish we could've gone on more adventures. But I guess we all have to say goodbye someday."
"Everyone... Thank you. Farewell."
"My memories will be part of the sky..."

Ideas?Keltainentoukokuu 03:18, August 29, 2011 (UTC)

Well, a GameFAQs entry offers a third idea - that each party member speaks a different part of the dialogue, the bit after the scene featuring them occurs. That too fits:

Vivi: "I always talked about you, Zidane. How you were a special person to us, because you taught us all how important life is."
Freya: "You taught me that life doesn't last forever. That's why we have to help each other and live life to the fullest."
Beatrix: "Even if you say goodbye, you'll always be in our hearts. So, I know we're not alone anymore."
Amarant: "Why I was born... How I want to live... Thanks for giving me time to think."
Eiko: "What to do when I felt lonely... That was the only thing you couldn't teach me. But we need to figure out the answer for ourselves..."
Steiner: "I'm so happy I met everyone... I wish we could've gone on more adventures. But I guess we all have to say goodbye someday."

I think it's just one of those mysteries, though part of it is as you say clearly Mikoto, the rest, who knows? Doreiku Kuroofangu 03:52, August 29, 2011 (UTC)

Hmm never thought of it that way. (What of the farewell my memories will be part of the sky part though?) I always thought the "black screen" text must be by either Garnet or Vivi.Keltainentoukokuu 04:17, August 29, 2011 (UTC)
He-hey in totally related news some new Square Enix web magazine lists the FFWiki as one of their favourite fansites. Group hug! ;)Keltainentoukokuu 04:21, August 29, 2011 (UTC)
Yay for the wiki. As for your question...well, what Drake said is pretty much what I think. Either that, or the entire part from Vivi's "son" onwards is by Vivi himself is the other part I thought of. Hard to say really. Xenomic 04:33, August 29, 2011 (UTC)

Dude Im nearing the end of FFVI with your walkthrough!

You totally gotta do one for FFV! No one does the witty sarcasm like you do ;_;

Final Fantasy XII (Manga)[edit source]

Hi Drake. Saw your post on this page's talk page. I dug some stuffs as far as my surfing power can do and there's not much to get regarding this material aside from manga sites posting some if the manga's issues. I was thinking of adding an info box in the page to provide some more info such as the manga's author's/artist's name, number of volumes known, etc. but sadly that's something I haven't figured out yet. If you can assist me, that's wonderful. If no, that's understandable. Rivan Pneuma 21:06, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure what infobox would be used for this myself. Doreiku Kuroofangu 21:11, September 2, 2011 (UTC)
We can follow the format of infoboxes used for articles about films/animés (See: FF:Unlimited) but will instead give details about the author, artist/illustrator, publisher, number of issues/volumes, etc. Just an FYI, the magazine where this manga appeared has been stopped last 2009. So far, I found out that there are 5 volumes with at least 3 episodes/issues out but no news of future volumes. I did not play the game myself so I have no basis for comparison but based from feedbacks I've read, the manga revolves around Ashe. There are parts of the manga that never appeared in the game and vice-versa. Hope these info I found helps. Rivan Pneuma 22:50, September 2, 2011 (UTC)

.....Ya know I can't remember. Was something to do with the TAY multi enemies template...I think I figured it out. Heh, sorry. Doreiku Kuroofangu 12:30, September 21, 2011 (UTC)
Well, you created the talk page after your edit to the multi Enemies... whatever. 79.69.201.192 12:32, September 21, 2011 (UTC)

He says it's a work in progress, so I'm okay with it. Thanks for alerting me though. Doreiku Kuroofangu 22:54, September 22, 2011 (UTC)

Image template[edit source]

The code we talked about is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Image&action=edit

The catch is that it's an actual template, not something to change our basic image functionality. In other words, implementing this would mean we'd have this on top of MediaWiki's default image and file linking. Bluestarultor Best-of Stellar Arena sigicon.png BSA 00:27, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

That all flies over my head. Does that mean we can't use it? Doreiku Kuroofangu 00:32, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
That means we can add it, but it's a second thing in addition to what we already have. The old way will still use "[[" and this way will use "{{". Bluestarultor Best-of Stellar Arena sigicon.png BSA 00:48, September 23, 2011 (UTC)
Ooooh...well I suppose that works well enough. Alright then, if you could do it that'd be nice. Doreiku Kuroofangu 00:59, September 23, 2011 (UTC)

I'm Stupid[edit source]

Hey, I frequently use this wiki for useful info, but I have information concerning a glitch that isn't so common to come by, and it isn't presented in this wiki. So I just recently signed up, and it seems creating anything requires a ton of experience.

I'm a bit overwhelmed with all this information and need help creating a page. I'd like to add an article that explains how to get onion equipment in the NES version of final fantasy 3 using a glitch. I'd PM you what I have so far, but I don't even know how to do that. I show you here, but it might be a bit intrusive. Crunchy Moogle 09:50, September 27, 2011 (UTC)

That's fine, explain it here and I'll make the page for you. Or if you want credit for it I can make the content in a sandbox and let you copy it to the mainspace. Doreiku Kuroofangu 10:29, September 27, 2011 (UTC)
I think the said glitch page exists on the wiki already: Item Upgrade Glitch?Keltainentoukokuu 16:48, September 27, 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps it's a "searching for" problem. Maybe a redirect is in order? Maybe Onion Gear Glitch since that's the primary reason for exploiting it? -- EGingell Talk,WoW Pedia 18:01, September 27, 2011 (UTC)

Battle Piece[edit source]

Sorry, missed it. It can be done. Where's the template? 79.69.194.3 23:54, September 30, 2011 (UTC)

Right here. Thanks. Doreiku Kuroofangu 01:08, October 1, 2011 (UTC)

It isn't working because the Omega symbol is in brackets. If that is how they are supposed to be formatted, then I can change that, but I was only going by what was written on my talk page. 79.69.198.82 20:17, October 4, 2011 (UTC)

Ah, didn't notice that. It's okay then, if it's just a problem with how its written on the page and not with the template itself, I'll fix it when I get there. Doreiku Kuroofangu 20:18, October 4, 2011 (UTC)

Spell[edit source]

The tentacles moved towards Laguna and a ball of gray lightning hit his calf... Then he had the leg cramp. Makes sense right? AmbieSushi To think that mother would prefer Sephiroth over... 23:45, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Except that Laguna having leg cramps is a running gag that occurs without the spell, and it's liable that was just a graphical representation of his condition. Doreiku Kuroofangu 00:36, October 13, 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps. And I meant Arc isn't represented in Ontion Knight's non-EX Mode clothes AmbieSushi To think that mother would prefer Sephiroth over... 00:51, October 13, 2011 (UTC)
That's an odd exclusion though, and one not worth making. Doreiku Kuroofangu 00:53, October 13, 2011 (UTC)
I changed it. AmbieSushi To think that mother would prefer Sephiroth over... 02:00, October 13, 2011 (UTC)

Images[edit source]

Is there a reason you keep deleting my images and then uploading the same one rather then simply pushing the 'upload new version' option? I was under the impression from other users on this Wiki that 'uploading new version' was the correct and more prefered way to add new/better copies of images. ~ TheMoonclaw 06:27, October 13, 2011 (UTC)

Did you make sure the images he was uploading were also in the same format? .png is the preferred format on the Wiki when using images, so it's possible he was changing the images to .png format. Jimcloud 06:48, October 13, 2011 (UTC)
That's exactly what I was doing. To quote a great warlock, "DURR-HURR-HURR!" Doreiku Kuroofangu 13:53, October 13, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, but why aren't you just overriding my image with your png? Why delete my copy? ~ TheMoonclaw 02:00, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

You cannot override images with a different file type.Keltainentoukokuu 02:02, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

Quiz[edit source]

111/116. I thought I did pretty well. I missed Cid Pollendina (couldn't spell his last name), Setzer, Leo, Ghost (totally forgot the Ghost existed until it showed me the results), and Seifer. I'm lucky you didn't put all the moogles from VI there or many more points would have been lost. ScatheMote 02:49, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, I considered just putting "10 Moogles", but individually, NO ONE knows their names :p Doreiku Kuroofangu 02:51, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
I was a bit stumped concerning the moogles too (um, Mogsy, Moglin, Cosmog, Molulu, Mog, Moguel, Moggy...I forget the rest)! I finished with 06:07 left having identified all 116 of the characters. Very proud of myself! Didn't even realise there WERE so many characters (oh, and I almost forgot Onion Knight as well). Tia-Lewise 09:01, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

111 with six minutes left. Completely forgot Gogo, couldn't remember Arc (even now it doesn't ring any bells), and didn't get Scott, Gordo, and Leila. Disappointed "Reina" didn't work. Also disappointed with lack of teh moogehlz. 79.69.197.179 19:50, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

108/116 with six minutes left. While I can see how I missed Guy, Gordon, Banon, Irvine, Seymour, Gadot and Lebreau, I am ashamed of myself for having missed Yang. MirrorshardSceada 11:45, October 16, 2011 (UTC)

114/116 (technically 116/116, but I cheated with Biggs and Wedge, who I forgot about) with about seven-eight minutes left. SidVI Dissicon ff7 Tifa2.png 13:18, October 16, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, glad you enjoyed them. FF9, I dunno, I really enjoyed it but there's something about it that makes me disinclined to not replay it soon.

I thought that was very good.

Most of FFVII he's just that guy everyone talks about but you never see. Guess the "mystery" is part of the allure. I don't dislike him or anything, just never really felt one way or the other.

Why I think Sephiroth continues being evil after realising he was wrong about being the last Cetra, is that...he is just meant to be insane. I just can't think of anything else. Like...some people have schizophrenia run in their family but never display any signs of mental illness, until something happens to them that shakes their world and it sets the illness and they become mentally ill and may never recover. Although, if Sephiroth is mentally ill, can he be said to be "evil"? Guess that's an age old question though.

I think disk 1 Midgar bit is the best bit of the game, you know, thematically or whatever fancy word for it. Fighting a big monopoly corporation that is ruining everyone's lives is just much more interesting, especially when it is shown that your terrorist attacks don't do shit, Shinra repairs the reactors or at least don't seem too concerned about them in their executive meeting, and they harm civilians, so the effectiveness of your strategy is really questionable. And even killing the CEO doesn't do it, the next guy in line just steps in. But then the focus shifts to Sephiroth and Shinra just falls apart on its own accord.

And...one more thing. I don't maybe like these "obvious villain is obvious" villains. I'd like them to mix it up a bit. The biggest thing we get in Final Fantasy so far is "well the bad guy wasn't really so bad, he was just misguided, his motives were understandable". I'm kind of a little bit of fangirl of this game called Resonance of Fate, and I like it doesn't really have any obvious villain. Of course they obviously ran into a problem in that game, that JRPGs must have an epic multi level final boss, so who are we gonna pin in this role if there is no obvious villain? So...that was pretty weak. But...basically I like the idea. And good that someone dares to experiment with something else than reusing same old same old.Keltainentoukokuu 04:47, October 30, 2011 (UTC)

Agreed with your points on Shinra. As for the "obvious villain", I agree, it's nice to have villains like that, like Vayne or Seymour who in their own twisted way think they're doing the right thing. There's something to be said for villains like Kefka too, who just destroy everything they can for a good chuckle, but morally ambiguous villains are more intereasting characters.

Just finished your quiz[edit source]

The one on all 116 characters. I feel like such a nerd... 116/116... Anyway, great job, man. Now try one with all the summons of the main games!

IRC[edit source]

I have been there, but I don't know how anything works! It's all too confusing. ;)Keltainentoukokuu 16:24, November 8, 2011 (UTC)

No Problem[edit source]

Yes, of course. I am just enemy with Netherith. But I am disappearing from here! Goodbye! --☭☭☭☭TitanSith888☭☭☭☭ 11:20, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

Of course! I will not do it there! --☭☭☭☭TitanSith888☭☭☭☭ 11:22, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

REPLY[edit source]

Hey There. Thanks but I got permission already. Anyway what do you mean I can't use Images on my user page? I have seen others do it before. Also I forgot adding it on my user page would also add it on the photos. I will upload them more properly next time. Thanks. Also nice CloudXTerra pic. ~The Hero~ 05:32, November 18, 2011 (UTC)Cloudstrifecomplete

It means you can't upload images that are exclusively for use on your user page. -- EGingell Talk,WoW Pedia 09:29, November 18, 2011 (UTC)
Add: Also, just because you say you have permission, doesn't mean diddly squat. You still need to include a license with your image. -- EGingell Talk,WoW Pedia 09:32, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

Jecht and Terra[edit source]

If I'm not mistaken, Jecht and Terra's manikin's haven't been moved?? Or am I missing something? 79.69.207.29 19:23, November 20, 2011 (UTC)

My bad, got it. Doreiku Kuroofangu 19:26, November 20, 2011 (UTC)

Christmas theme[edit source]

Love the new talk bubble and santa hat on Terra. Everyone should do this!Keltainentoukokuu 03:03, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

Aye, I love Christmas. TIS THE SEASON! Doreiku Kuroofangu 03:47, December 7, 2011 (UTC)
I am disappointed with the lack of Christmas decoration on your userpage. Where are the moving gifs! You should also implement some really cheery Christmas tune background music that you can't turn off. :DKeltainentoukokuu 04:34, December 7, 2011 (UTC)
I'd not thought of such. A moment. Doreiku Kuroofangu 04:52, December 7, 2011 (UTC)
Well, was pretty hard and odds are it only lines up properly for me, but nothing I can do about it. Doreiku Kuroofangu 05:54, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

PNG[edit source]

Hey, i'm a total noob at making images with transparent background. I've been trying to complete The after years enemy pages but i dont know how to make those PNG images with transparent background. How do you make them? Here's my talkpage

202.92.144.128 02:06, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

Easy. Put it in the image editing software, and select the stuff that needs to be transparent,then hit the DELETE key. In all the image-editing software I've used it works.C A T U S E02:11, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

Dont worry[edit source]

I won't be adding those pictures anymore. it's freaking hard with all the anti-aliasing that i dont understand SΓΣamyGoreng 07:38, December 11, 2011 (UTC)

FFIV TAY template[edit source]

Hey Drake. I was wondering if you could help me with the template. Xenomic told me to ask you.

I was putting the bestiary numbers for the FFIV:TAY enemies but there are monsters with 2 to 4 bestiary entries. So i was wondering if you could do something like this to the template:

Never mind. I found the multi template. Never thought it existedSΓΣamyGoreng 11:04, December 15, 2011 (UTC)

Esper[edit source]

Any ideas? ▫ Sir ISStalk 16:38, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

Well, the problem is...yes, you guessed it...I can't read Japanese. If you want, I'll re-scan the image with text, but we're still at a loss if nobody here can understand it. Tell me where you want me to display it, right here on your page? ▫ Sir ISStalk 16:51, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

That'll do fine yes, I know of several people who can speak Japanese including Tabbeh on the Wiki's IRC, so by the end of the day I should be able to find out. Doreiku Kuroofangu 16:54, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

Good, there will be others, as soon as I clean them up. That is, unless Blue comes to the rescue again. ▫ Sir ISStalk 17:06, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

Forums[edit source]

Hi there, Drake. You may want to take a look at some of the forum directories, such as the Blackjack and Rin's Travel Agency. When I took a look at them, they were... well, fairly broken. Thanks. 114.77.77.5

So they are. Thanks for letting me know, I'll get an Admin to look at it. Doreiku Kuroofangu 22:49, December 18, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you again, but you're not interested in FFXIII-2, are you? Because I've found screenshots of the final boss in the Japanese version of the game, but I wouldn't want to ruin the ending for you. It's just that they're good images, and they'd be a good addition to the wiki, but as you know, we anons cannot upload images.

In any case, I'll leave the link here. The images are at the bottom of the page. You can look at them if you want, but you don't have to :)

Christmas[edit source]

For two reasons: the lights on your page are awesome- though they block some links on my browser- and I respect you as a hard working and dedicated member of the wiki. For that reason I just thought I'd wish you a very merry Christmas, since I'm just going round the members I either talk to a lot or like a lot :) Tia-LewiseRydia - Young battle.png 00:06, December 25, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you very much, and a merry christmas to you as well. :) Doreiku Kuroofangu 00:24, December 25, 2011 (UTC)

FFIV Template[edit source]

Hey Drake, can you do something about the template for FFIV enemies, especially for those that only appear in the Lunar Ruins. I noted that the template only includes the GBA tab and there's none for PSP. SΓΣamyGoreng 02:07, December 27, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, but when it comes to that type of coding I'm fuzzy. Drop someone like JBed or Xeno a line about it. Doreiku Kuroofangu 02:11, December 27, 2011 (UTC)
You just have to add a parameter "| PSP = [name in PSP version]". The tab will then appear. 79.69.192.230 14:18, December 27, 2011 (UTC)

Fantasy Mystic Quest Map[edit source]

Hello Drake Clawfang, I was wondering why you haven't included Hill of Destiny in your uploaded MQ map? It would be easy to edit the map to include it with any image software (Microsoft Paint for example). I don't know if you took screenshots in creating the MQ map and piece it together, but getting a screenshots of Hill of Destiny before it sinks should be relative easy with an emulator. Fenrir9 19:35, December 27, 2011 (UTC)

I just found the map on a search engine. I checked for others, specifically one of the end-game map, but didn't find anything. If you have one then by all means, replace it please. Just make it the same dimensions as the current one so the Battlefield page remains intact. Doreiku Kuroofangu 19:43, December 27, 2011 (UTC)
