Crisis Core Materia Fusion Guide & Stat Modifier Trick

This is the Crisis Core Materia Fusion Guide, it’s meant to help you master Materia Fusion in Final Fantasy Crisis Core to create materia for buffs like +999% HP, +100 Stats, get tips for farming and so much more.

Crisis Core Materia Fusion Guide will help you even the odds against the monsters in Crisis Core and even help you defeat Minerva ^_^.  So without further pause:

The Crisis CoreMateria Fusion Guide

The main requirement is that your finish mission 7-2-1 for the Item fusion tome (item fusion).

Note:

Many people don’t understand that 7-2-1, here’s an example:

Mission-> 7 (Seeking Priceless Items)->2 (Precious Things->1 (Seek and Destroy)..

Note: this will be available at Chapter 5 (when you meet Aeris/Aerith).

Table of Contents

  1. HP modifier
  2. Costly Punch Materia
  3. SP Gathering
  4. Stat Modifier & Tricks
  5. Accessories Location
  6. Other Useful Accessories
  7. Shop Location (Obtained in Mission)
  8. Mission Tips
  9. Materia Fusion Guide (NEW)

HP modifier

To those starting at the game, that have small money, you can try this…

Requirements:
Potions and Hp Ups

Potion=buy from shop
Hp Up+= Steal or Mug from Vajradhara Indra in mission 4-4-1 (Easy Mission) (if you’re having hard time dealing with this monster, try the second option)

Steal Materia Location
Mission 7-4-1 (Treasure Chest)
Mission 8-3-6 (Treasure Chest)

Note: The mission difficulty depends on Zack’s Level..

Note: The picture below is a monster that can be fight at normal encounter (not a mission boss), so you can fight it all over again without completing the mission (hassle free)

Option 2:
Mission 4-2-5 (Very Easy Mission) (thanks to yuimishima for the tip)…

If you collected the needed requirements, proceed to materia fusion

First we combine the 2 Hp Up+ that we stole and Potion(80) like this…

Ok, combine again a 2 Hp Up+ and Potion(80), so the result will be 2 Hp Up+ with +70% each..

Then we will combine those 2 like this

After that, create again a HP up+ with 70%, then do this

Then repeat the process again, to increase the percent of the Hp Materia..

Now for those who like to link them to magic like curaga, combine Hp UP materia + curaga materia

Example Hp+999% + Curaga= Curaga+999%

Costly Punch Materia

Now if you have HP+999%, then we proceed to the 99999 damage modifier

Requirements:
Adaman Bangle(Mission chest or reward) or Genji Armor(100% DMW) or Divine Slayer (Defeating Minerva)= Accessories that breaks HP limit
Brutal(Mission Chest or Reward, Genji Glove(Mission Chest) and Divine Slayer= Accessories that break damage Limit
Costly Punch

How to get costly punch:

Combine any punch materia + any dmw materia (like Megaflare dmw materia or Octaslash materia)..

Magical Punch Materia
Mission 1-5-4 (Treasure Chest)
Mission 4-5-6 (Reward)
Mission 5-4-2 (Reward)
Mission 6-5-5 (Treasure Chest)
Mission 7-5-5 (Treasure Chest)
Mission 9-3-4 (Reward)

Iron Fist Materia
Mission 3-5-2 (Treasure Chest)
Mission 5-3-3 (Reward)
Mission 7-5-1 (Treasure Chest)
Mission 9-2-5 (Reward)

Goblin Punch Materia
Mission 4-5-4 (Reward)

@DMW Materia

Bone Village Commerce (Shop)

Mission 7-5-3(Treasure Chest)

When finish, this will be the result..

Costly punch damage is based on your maximum hp and it ignores enemy vit, but it causes 0 damage when:

Example is the picture above

Zack has 55,836(max HP) but the HP break is 93,200 that causes costly punch damage to 0

You must have the exact HP or lower to dish out the 99999 damage…

When your HP breaks (because of that dmw reel), unequip your HP modifier then equip it again, then heal hehe…

SP Gathering

Now that you have costly punch..

We need to gather a huge amount of SP to do Materia Fusion (if you want +999% HP modifier)

This is the monster that give huge amount of SP, it is located in mission 8-6-1, 2-3-3, 6-4-1, its called RE Movers

If you want money gathering while getting SP, equip this

then this is what you get…

a 4000 SP & a Gold Armlet

So while you gathering SP, you also have Gold Armlet that you can sell for 3000G

    thanks for the info. I’ll update the post and inform the creator of the guide

  16. biosong April 21, 2008 Reply

    to everyone and sylv3rblade
    i have found an easier way of farming Adamantite ^^
    go to 7-6-4 (The Irritated Recruiter)

    random battle a driller machine(yellow color) named Crazy Sword (this is also the boss for this mission)
    this machine will die in 2 99999 hits.
    in a ddition, the same machine also gives BRUTAL if you steal/mug.

    note that in order to get these items you must have the Mog’s Amulet, if not you will only get Guard Stone from Stealing and no Adamantite.

    beware of the
    G Hoplite B’s shadow swith skill, it stops you and hits twice damage you very much.
    Crazy Sword’s Drill Attack skill, hits me once and i am always dead.lol

    enjoy^^

    note:
    my HP is only 46902 while doing this mission.
    to answer my own question, Zeio Nut can be harvested from Bees, ofcourse equip the Mog’s Amulet

    @galardo
    try Mission 10-2-3 and using the following skills/magic on it when it asks for them: Jump, Fira, Gravity, and Spin Attack
    much easier.^^

  17. biosong April 21, 2008 Reply

    to add another option in farmiing SP, try the mover EX, it gives 8000 SP and gives Rune Amulet and Sells for 4000Gil

    mover EX can be found 7-6-5
    im using mog’s amulet

  18. biosong April 21, 2008 Reply

    spin attack = assault twister

  19. galardo April 21, 2008 Reply

    @biosong: I have a problem… I have no Gravity, Fira and Jump at all… do you know, where I can steal that Materia or is there any shop where I can buy that?

  20. biosong April 22, 2008 Reply

    @galardo
    there are a lot of ways to get gravity
    in 4-2-5, in a certain chest
    in 8-3-2, in a certain chest
    in 8-3-4, in a certain chest
    in 9-3-3, as a reward
    in 9-4-2, in a certain chest

    it is also a treasure right before tseng was added to your DMV

    unfortunately i dont knwo any shop that sells it,nor i dont recall a monster i stole that from, what you can try is if you fought a monster that uses gravity, most likely you can steal the same materia from it, just use mog’s amulet.

    now, Fira can be bought at The Happy Turtle Shop for 3000G

    same with jump, i recall fighting a leaping monster and just use steal, or you can fuse (Power Attack + AP Up), or you can have Jump at 3-2-2 from one of the chests and as a reward in 6-1-3

    Assault Twisteris dropped by Ifrit, Genesis Baldor
    a reward in 2-5-1
    from a chest in 3-2-2 (needs to be in chapter 8)

    for your convinience, you can always refer to other guides. ^_^ google it. hehehe

  21. galardo April 22, 2008 Reply

    OK thank you dude, I think now I would manage it ^^

  22. xatm095 April 22, 2008 Reply

    there’s a more easier way to get money and farm SP at the same time.

    in mission 6-3-5 -> Item in the Coal Mines

    1. equip Mog’s Amulet, safety-bit or any other anti-death accessory
    2. you may equip Dispel

    -kill demons. you can steal magic up++, and Darkness materia can be obtained from each demon. they are very easy to kill. however, demons cast wall on themselves, so this where Dispel is useful.

    -convert the Darkness into SP.
    darkness = 6040 SP

    *kill 20 demons (20 darkness) = 120,800 SP

    it’s much better than spending time killing Movers.

    ———————————————-
    also, there are two types of monsters that go with demons:

    -Hornet: you can steal hi-potion, and they also drop hi-potion

    -Boundfat: you can steal Crystal Bracelet, they drop SPR mako stone

    sell the Crystal Bracelet for 7500gil each.

  23. galardo April 22, 2008 Reply

    I’ve found the perfect mission for getting alot of SP: Mission 9-5-3 (Unusually Strong Monsters) there is the Mover RE, which gives you 20000 SP when you kill… if you first kill the other monster and then the jumping balls, you can get 20000×2 or 20000×3… so finally you could gain more than 100000 SP for one fight =)
    That rulezZ

  24. galardo April 23, 2008 Reply

    YESSSS… I’ve got all Genji Items (Genji Armour, Genji Gloves, Genji Shield)… and now I’ll finish the last mission.

  25. biosong April 23, 2008 Reply

    lucky you galardo
    i have no luck in getting the octoslash reel..

    right now im finishing allmissions before i leave shinra bldg, why?? coz you get FREE pheonix down anytime, so you like have 2 lives every mission.

    oh and btw, theres some unique items i come across, the one will multiply your max hp/mp/ap max x3, cool? i also manage to steal a RIBBOn, i wonder when can i get the super ribbon from magic pot.. spoke too soon, super ribbon seems to be a reward(9-6-2). hahaha

    @xatm095
    the figures you mention is quite impressive, however true to what galardo said, the mover RE is easy to beat than the demons plus you dont need to wear anti death, you can kill movers in 1hit. you get an item also after killing a mover so you can sell that, i think its 10000 worth item.

    to add to your guide, there is this item that dooubles the drop of a monster, so if you equop that you can gather whatever item you wish twice as fast. good for the adamantite farmiing. ^^

    @galardo
    you are missing the Genji Helm. lol gives you Auto Libra and 0 AP/MP consumption.
    to get it? buy it. hahahaha

      You do realize that the monster with 20,000 SP isn’t Mover RE it’s called Three Stars, right? :P

    @ biosong: I’ve a tip for getting the Genji Shield from the magic pot… buy Octaslash in the shop “Research Dept. QMC +” one or two times, than equip and voila you have a better chance in getting the Octaslash.
    I did it in that way and after 1-2 hours I got the Genji Shield

    hi guys got another tip about getting genji shield in 7-6-6

    first have a mastered octoslash and a lucky stars then equip lucky stars 1st and go into battle, and let the dmw spin to cissnei and hope you get a lvl 5 lucky stars

    when done, unequipped the lucky stars and equip the octoslash and go find the magic pot, satisfy the 1st 3 conditions the magic pot wants and wait for octoslash to happen, if you have a mastered octoslash it will happen for you.

    i have tried this method and it work 3 times in a row for me with the spoils as genji shield on the 1st, impervious on the 2nd and full cure materia on the 3rd.

    hope this info helps for fellow gamers.

  29. brian May 1, 2008 Reply

    here is some easier tips to get those materias fused with +100 stats with only using 2 sets of 99 adamantite for every fused materia shown in Atma Xplorer page accordingly.

    first is +100 mag stats, after completing mission 9-6-4, the reward is a +100 exaflare mastered materia, you can use this materia to fuse a ultima with +100 mag stats directly using flare + the mastered exaflare reward.

    next for spirit stats using mythrils, rather than farming for adamantites, you can farm for mythrils in mission 2-5-3 hunting 2 mover ex, this mission map is very very small so getting to the boss is very fast, after which equip the brigand glove to enable a successful steal and every steal you will get 2 mythrils from a mover ex but they will give flare materia also, so in no time you can get 99 of it and you can fuse the 99 mythrils to obtain a +100 spirit for you materia result you desire.

    i find it more easier to farm for mythrils than adamantites to fuse a +100 spirit materia as you already have close to 40 mythrils in your inventory by that time and farming for the rest will be more faster than farming for a total of 3 sets of adamantites.

    with mag and spirit settled, leaving luck and vitality, you will need adamantites where hunting in mission 7-6-4 will be faster but you have to equip the mog amulet.

    gysahl greens are more difficult to farm as they only dropped from cactuars and they are difficult to kill.

    i have tried the above methods and are able to fused those materias which are exactly the same as Atma Xplorer with only my luck stats to flare and all these done in around 60 hours including finishing minerva for my first play.

    hope the above info helps fellow gamers around.

  30. brian May 1, 2008 Reply

    here is another money earning tip…

    in mission 7-6-4 where you are hunting for adamantites, you will encounter a genesis enforcer, it carrys a sickle and its movement is very slow, you can defeat it with 2 costly punch.

    equip the mog amulet which you also need to get your adamantites from the drill machines and the genesis enforcer will give you force of nature when you steal or mug from them and kaiser knuckles when you defeat them, imagine the time spent hunting adamantites in this mission and encountering the genesis enforcer randomly, so adding this 2 drops you will get a lot of money in the end.

    hope this info helps.

    can someone please give me a hint about the locations of the items needed for materia fusion? i got a sample of each but i’ve already used them so i’m a bit worried if i can still find each of the items needed to do the tricks for stat modification.. thanks!!

    why is it my hp doesn’t change even though i have the hp up+999% need help pls

  33. jay pee May 5, 2008 Reply

    first you must find the “adaman bangle..” i’m not sure where i found it but i got 2 of them.. i got 1 from a treasure chest and the other was a reward from a mission.. it sets the hp limit to 99999 when equipped..

  34. Seraph May 6, 2008 Reply

    There’s an even easier way to max materia, and it can be done mid-game! Simply unlock mission 6-3-5, and go in with Blaze Armlet, Safety Bit, and Mog’s Amulet.

    Fight Boundfats and steal their Crystal Bracelets. 1 Crystal Bracelet fuses into 1 Spr+1, and they’re much much easier to kill than Adamntite holding enemies, plus they don’t do a whole lot of damage and will heal you with Firagas if you have Blaze Armlet. You have a 100% steal rate if you have Mog’s Amulet equipped. The Safety Bit is to protect you from the accompanying Demons’ Death spells.

    Collect 99 Crystal Bracelets and you can get Spr+100 on a Curaga (Cure + Fire/Ice/Thunder/Cure + 99 Crystal Bracelets) then fuse that Curaga with your desired materia and add a stat item and voila! The Demons drop Darkness which can be converted for 6040 SP a pop, which should keep your fusing funds excessive. You can also sell them off to raise money for that Genji Helm.

    Now go kill Minerva, and tell her Seraph sent you.

  35. brian May 6, 2008 Reply

    sry guys my info for getting adamantites and encountering the genesis enforcer is in mission 3-5-6 ‘The Last of the Genesis Troops’.

    you can get a higher encounter of the crazy sword in this cave mission map.

  36. brian May 6, 2008 Reply

    just discovered something also…

    you can get 2 adamantites from the crazy sword in the farming mission rather than the usual drop of 1 adamantite when you equip the Jeweled Ring accessory.

    this way you can cut short the time to hunt for adamantites already.

  37. brian May 7, 2008 Reply

    oh yah you can also equip the Jeweled Ring when hunting for adamantites to receive 2 instead of the usual 1

  38. milaners May 9, 2008 Reply

    hey try stealing from the boss while gathering adamantine.. it gives 2 pcs sp barrier which could be converted to 15k sp,, this makes hunting adamantine and sp at the same time easier since hunting 99 pcs adamantine = 99 pcs sp barrier and 99x 15010 = 1,485,990 sp.. so u can combine it already without hunting for sp from those movers..

  39. samusland May 9, 2008 Reply

    does anyone know if theres a monster where you can get steal or mug dropped? im at lst boss done all other missions and accidentally sp converted my steals and mugs. now i cant get 99 pheonix downs!!! can ne1 help? i tried all the missions again so theyre not in any chests anymore

  40. brian May 10, 2008 Reply

    for steal materia you can get it from

    Gremlin as a rare steal at missions 2-5-5, 6-6-4 and 9-4-3 so you have to equip mog amulet.

    for mug materia you can get it from

    Lesser Demon as a rare steal at missions 9-6-4 so mog amulet needed also.

    both enemies are Hedgehog Pie class to let you identify them easily.

    to fuse mug materia just use

    Smart Consumer (Master) + Libra or

    Steal + Electrocute

    i would prefer you to fuse a mug materia since you can hunt steal materia easily.

    hope the info helps…

    just combine your HP +999% to Curaga (follow the guide above) and equip another one (HP+700% w/ let’s say your Hell Thundaga).. It’s either that you get equipments that compensate for it.

    well it’s up to you. But once you get Costly punch, having any addition to the atk stat is kinda useless since you automatically deal 99999 damage.

    another adamantite fast farming idea

    This is what i’ve equipped:
    -Electrocute (almost mastered)
    -two hp mod +999%
    -Costly Punch +100% mag
    -Dual cast

    -genji armor (that one that needs to be bought at atrosious price tag)
    -brutal (breaks attacks to 99999)
    -Adamin bangle(breaks hp to 99999)
    -mog amulet

    Now same farming at the boss in mission 9-3-4

    but use
    Electro…..with that mag…..you just need to press it 3 times
    I’ve seen each hit at 50k….maybe 5 of them .

    : )

    Thanks sylv3rblade, I have finally achieved hp 99,999. It took me a while cause I rested a few days and then got to work but i figured it out, and while I was at it I got costly punch, It freaken rocks!!! Thanks soo much for your help and I greatly appreciate it :) And thanks to you brian also for helping, I used some of your tricks to so thanks!!

    I did not finish reading threw all posts but as a quick time saver, instead of farming all of the stuff to make the + 100 mods or even the +999 hp mod ect. Steal 1 HP+ and then steal 99 pheonix down from mineva and combine with any low lv random (like fire ect) to make a HP+ 999%

    then you can combine than with anything plus 1 mod item such as 1 Adamantite for a +100 Vit or a Mytrhil for +100 Spirit. So it can basicly be done in minutes instead of hours if your already that far in the missions.

    it really sucks.. even i fight wid costly punch,magical punch, hammerpunch, iron fist. even it cause 99999 damage.. some of the monsters can hit you as hard as you do.. wew…

    i only got genji helm. where can i find some of the genji? hahah .. magical pot? shops?

    hey.. and also.. i only got 1 left at my dmw.. where can i find cactuar? hahaha. damn.. maybe i miss it..

    Nightmarez can give an example

    i seen this method in other guides but still cant figure it out when i tried it out

  67. brian June 2, 2008 Reply

    to tOpitz

    to unlock cactuar mission in 10-1-1, you have to find and defeat the cactuar in mission 3-1-3

    in 3-1-3, the mission boss is a genesis clone and the cactuar is at the back of the clone, so circle around it to the back and you will find it

    bro sylv3rblade try this to get a costly punch materia with hp+999%

    step 1
    fuse 2 lvl 1 DMW materias with a fat chocobo feather

    result = lvl 1 libra with hp +40%

    step 2
    fuse the libra materia you got in step 1 with a normal lvl 1 libra materia and 99 phoenix downs

    result = lvl 1 libra with hp+999%

    final step
    fuse a lvl 1 costly punch materia with the libra materia in step 2

    result = lvl 1 costly punch with hp+999%

    i tired this out personally and this is the result i got

    try it out sylv3rblade and update if it works for you

    On a UK advert for the game I saw, it has Zack using octaslash from his list of commands next to attack item etc. It says Octaslash level 5. Is there a way you can do this in the game to get octaslash as a command ?! or do you need to complete the game to unlock it or something ?
    No one believes me but I swear I saw it !

  74. brian June 9, 2008 Reply

    i came across it when i downloaded a save file from other gamers in gamefaqs

    those DMW materias are in green like magic materias and once you equipped them and go into battle, it falls within the command slots and once you activate the materia, you will unleash the skill

    but overall i dun think those DMW materias can be fused to become a useable command materia, if so it will be heaven and owning the game

    what i believe is they are using cheat codes, other than those converted DMW materias, other items in the inventory are all 99 including ganji equips, DMW menu are all 9999 and all stats are 255 without the use of fused materias with stats bonuses

    i tried those save files out of fun and this is what i found out

    if there is really a way to fuse those DMW materias to be a command materia pls share

    minerva is in mission 9-6-6

    you can just mug or steal the 99 phoenix down from it

    missions are repeatable so just go in and steal the hell out of minerva

    go to mission 1-3-2 and kill tigers with mog amulet on to farm ap+ and fuse them till you have a 999% ap+ then sp convert it, its the second fastest sp method only second to minerva

  78. ViNC3 June 12, 2008 Reply

    thanks man! but still a long way to go till i can go for 9-6-6.
    playing hard mode, totally need this

    by the way, i still haven’t unlock 7-X-X series mission, how do i unlock it? do i need to play till certain story line to unlock it?

    dude, the tips you gave on mission 1-3-2 for 999% AP, i can convert it to HP +999%?

  79. --{====- June 13, 2008 Reply

    im not sure about unlocking stuff yet i havent done it all myself:) but i know that using ap+ to make hp999% is faster if you put two ap+ 20% together with 90 soma you get an ap with 120% fuse that with any % up and it adds 60% to it so its faster than the potions and hp+ also you probably get ap+’s about a hundred times faster than hp+’s :p but i noticed something, if you take and ap+ and an hp+ the one on top gets the bonus regardless of the lower ones stats

  80. brian June 13, 2008 Reply

    to unlock missions 7-1-1 to 7-1-6, you will need to talk to a soldier 3rd class in the shinra hq building briefing room in chapter 4

    after finishing this first 6 missions, talk to him again to get an item for building your flower cart with areith in the later part of the game

    for 7-2-1, it will be unlocked in chapter 5 of the game play and the rest is unlocked by just clearing missions onwards

    there are many ways to fuse materias and i agree using hp+ with potions is tedious

    you can try using hp+ fuse with elixirs, the increment effect is more bigger than potions

  81. --{====- June 14, 2008 Reply

    yeah, but what kind of good rpg lets you get anywhere without some grinding work? :) hmm also im not sure if x-potions give a bigger increment than elixers, i’ll check that when i get home:) man its hard to get through them 9-x-x missions, dang lol im getting slaughtered with 99999 hp and 180 vit lol, hmmm where can you find a great malboro?

  82. --{====- June 14, 2008 Reply

    and one more thing. im almost certain that people that have the octaslash command are hackers haha. but that would seriously pwn if you could get one legally

  83. brian June 15, 2008 Reply

    totally agreed, if we can managed to fuse those DMW materias to be an ad hoc command materia, the game play is totally useless

    final fantasy series is all about hard work and patience in order to archieve everything

    for your info, great malboro is a mission boss in 9-6-4

    x-potions also give a boost in hp% increment but its not as great as elixirs, i have compared the difference before when i started to fuse hp% materias

    my process is more tedious, i fused my hp materias with elixirs, mastering them to get a higher %, then fuse with another mastered hp% materia to get a higher hp% effect and so on to get 999%

    elixirs are rare in your 1st play but fusing 10 or even 20 elixirs you can see the effect already, if not just fuse with potions or even x-potions to the desired % you want then master them to get a higher % and fuse them altogether

    missions 9-5-1 onwards you can expect them to be hard but can be done when you know how to tackle them carefully and just let your costly punch do all the work

    but watch out for cactuars in 9-6-1, they normally deal 10k damage, but when they are defeated, they will cast 100k damage, if you cant manage to avoid this move, even with 99k hp you are a dead Zack, imagine you killed 2 of them at the same time, if you find you are not fast enough, equipped the Dash materia to move around more quickly to avoid

    moreover to the end of 9-6-1, you will encounter 3 cactuars so remember to cast phoenix downs whenever you are dead if not the mission is practically over

    hope it helps :)

  84. --{====- June 17, 2008 Reply

    yeah, i agree with you, if you come into this series unprepaired for the workload your looking at…. this game will eat your soul, but if you know what your doing the rewards are totally worth it. thanks by by the way for the info, and clarifying the x-potion thing, but im having trouble with the entire 9-x-x set in general, can you tell me how you tackled it? like what materia and items?

  85. --{====- June 17, 2008 Reply

    also, if your feeling up to it i need a list of where the summons are haha i need to complete my dmw

  86. brian June 17, 2008 Reply

    for missions 9-x-x, make sure you have costly punch and 99999hp

    its also impt to have the genji shield, genji armour and genji gloves with you

    next try to boost your stats with your fused materias

    you can try to understand how the mobs move, attack then hit and avoid them tactically, if you dun feel confident, consume phoenix downs whenever possible

    another way is try to avoid random encounters by hugging to the sides of the walls when you move, even having to travel longer channels, take note that you have to cover a lot of areas to get the reward chests and find the mission boss, when you reach those missions, you will understand what i meant

    by the time i reached 9-5-1, my materias are all fused with the needed stats except for att, you dun require att since costly punch is more than enough to help you through

    and select the option to do the mystery quest 1 then check the water tower

    magic pot – most simple is to encounter them in mission 10-2-3, but beforehand equip Jump, Fira, Gravity, Assault Twister first and just use those commands when the magic pot require you to do so, when done, it will be your DMW

  98. brian June 18, 2008 Reply

    all your materias, lvl, game time, gil, sp, dmw % stats and basic items and accessories in your inventory are carried forward when you start the new game plus

    but you got to collect all the dmw items again thru missions including the keychain and backpack accessory

    delita the octoslash materia can be bought at Research Dept. QMC + shop, it is found in a treasure chest in chapter 10 Gongaga Village, search the area thoroughly as the chest is quite hard to locate if not as you progress on, you will miss this chest permanently

    the magic pot is quite hard to encounter, my encounter rates are also quite random but i find it more easier to encounter them when you start the mission and just walk up and down the long stretch above the starting point

  105. --{====- June 19, 2008 Reply

    first you have to get flare… haha then just use A dark matter and 99 phoenix downs

  106. brian June 19, 2008 Reply

    yap you dun start with all the perks at the start of the game, but you will still pawn with your lvl and stats

    then delita you must have meant 9-6-5, why dun you fuse a +100 mag onto a ultima, its much more simple

    process for fusing flare is much more complicated

    if you still wanna fuse a +100 mag flare then transfer the +100 mag exaflare reward in mission 9-6-4, you shld have it since you already reach 9-6-5

    try this, simply fuse the +100 mag exaflare materia you got in mission 9-6-4 with a libra materia

    Libra + Exaflare +100 mag = libra lvl 1 +100 mag

    then hope you have a mastered electrocute with you then fuse it with the libra you fused eariler on, with electrocute on top and the libra on the 2nd, then you can obtain a lvl 1 flare with + 100 mag materia

    if you intend to fuse a ultima with + 100 mag then simply use the exaflare + 100 mag and fuse it with either tri fire, tri thundaga, electrocute, flare or energy

    try to see if it works and update here

    thks and hope it helps :)

  107. delita June 19, 2008 Reply

    Brian, you are a beast! it worked i got a flare that gives me a MAG+100! I need your help again….. i need to find a way to get an electrocute materia that gives me VIT+100. can you help? oh and im having trouble getting da Genji Armor also. i have the helm (cost 1mil), shield (magic pot finally got it!), gloves (treasure chest). got any tips on that also?

  108. brian June 20, 2008 Reply

    haha what a way to describe me

    genji armour can be obtained when you got all 100% for your dmw stats, where summons and chocobo support dmw will be 100% upon summoning them once and all characters scenes seen to reach 100%, if you still have problems then equip the specific dmw materia for the one you are lacking

    then to get a + 100 vit electrocute, you will need to do more work

    my method of getting it is simply fusing libra and libra with 99 adamantites to get libra + 100 vit, yes that means you will have to hunt for 99 adamantites, you can refer to the earlier posts where i have describe where to hunt adamantites effectively

    when you have done this, then fuse the libra + 100 vit with a tri fire materia and you will get a tri fire + 100 vit materia

    then fuse a mastered tri thundaga with the tri fire above and you will get your + 100 vit electrocute

    another way is if you have a mastered tri fire materia, then simply fuse the libra + 100 vit with the mastered tri fire materia and you will get the same result

    try it and see if this works but i think you will spend some time 1st in collecting adamantites

    if there are other methods. pls also share as this is the only method i know of

  109. delita June 20, 2008 Reply

    brian there is another method thats really easy and efficent. here it is:

    Fuse a Libra lvl.1 with a dmw ( i used rebirth flame Mag+80 or zantenzuken Mag+60) and add some stat boost item that u have alot of (like i had alot of chocobo feathers so i put in 40 chocobo feathers and i got a Lvl.1 libra hp+999%) then fuse da following:

    electrocute lvl.1+ Libra lvl.1 hp+999%+adamantite (1)= electrocute lvl.1 Vit+100.

    thats how i did it and it worked. oh and i finally got everything in da game! i beat minerva and got 100% in mission progress. now all i need is that stupid genji armor but i dont think i will equip it cuz divine slayer is better but i want it anyways just so i can get everything in da game. im at lvl.89 and my stats are as follows:

    ATK=215
    VIT=255
    MAG=255
    SPR=255
    LCK=196

    my equipment is as follows:

    Electrocute (M) VIT+100
    Flare (M) MAG+100
    Ultima (M) LCK+100
    Curaga (M) HP+999%
    Dispel Blade (M) HP+999%
    Costly Punch (M) SPR+100

    Divine Slayer
    Ziedrich
    Genji Glove
    Genji Shield

  110. brian June 20, 2008 Reply

    gd for you, my methods are always the longer ones

    and thks to you that i finally figured out how to fuse +100 stats to materias using the hp+999% method

    and the genji armor might not be useful once you have the divine slayer but it helps to break the hp limit and gives the bonus of auto regen and endure when you did not have the divine slayer in the 1st place which is better than the adaman bangle

    yes! this page is back on the 2nd slot of Google Search Results. Right below Gamefaqs.. I wonder what it would take to get me on top hmm..

  114. brian June 20, 2008 Reply

    when i train my materias, i will go to mission 1-1-6, this is a long mission where you need to defeat 1000 shinra soldiers

    so if you want just go into this mission and equip the respective dmw materia to help in activating the limit break for the one you are missing

    activating the limit break does not mean anything, you will need to see the flashback scenes for the character when you are in modulating phase, just take note some scenes you might have gone thru does not count so when you finally seen something different then thats where you will see the % increment in your dmw stats

    i took quite long for my cloud to reach 100% after the 90% mark, you just left 1 last scene to be seen for cloud to reach 100%

    the same goes to genesis, after 55%, the final scene you see will let you attain 100% for genesis already

    go try it out delita

  115. --{====- June 21, 2008 Reply

    the easiest way to train materias for me is go to the mission where you fight ifrit for the last time, where hes the most powerful, then equip the wizard bracelet and a shinra beta+ and the adaman bangle n whatever else you want, then just go into the mission and set your psp down for the rest of the day, make sure it has sleep mode turned off tho, the only way ifrit will die is dmws so its pretty sure fire, i mastered them all in two nights without playing;)

    ok so you all have it wrong.

    My stats are as follows:
    hp 99999
    mp 744
    ap 776
    Atk 255
    Vit 255
    mag 255
    spr 255
    lck 96

    with this equpment:
    energy (lv2) mag+100
    quake (master) spr+100
    hell firaga (master) vit+100
    curaga (master) hp+999%
    assault twister+ (master) atk+100
    costly punch (master) hp+999%

    Divine slayer
    ziedrich
    genji shield
    geji glove

    And i did that without faming. The trick is to get to minerva and steal 99xPhoenixDowns and then sell them all. Do that 10 times or so and then buy as many dualcasts from network shop shade as you can. You should be able to get 99 of the dualcast materia, so now convert all of it into sp. This works like a charm. I have 45426070 sp. The cool thing is you can keep doing this trick.

    Now the catch.
    Getting to minerva is tough. So I reccomend costly punch so you can do major damage, quake and he’ll firaga so you can damage more than on enemy at a
    time. Make sure your atk and mag and hp is as high as you can get it.

    Another trick i found out:
    to level up zack and your materia go to mission 1-1-6. Fight 1000 shinra troops. If you equipt the moogle materia and you have moogle in you DMW then if you land on moogle, your materia could potentialy gt mastered. This trick is also good for getting 100% DMW. Once you get them all you need to see the video right? So mix it up a bit with the DMW materia untill you get it.

  120. Beowulf June 22, 2008 Reply

    Oh yeah!! Once you do the whole minerva thinger and get lots of sp, steal 99 more phoenix downs. Pick 1 materia and the second can be any DMW. The item sould be 99 phoenix downs but you need to make sure materia 1 is materia lv.x hp+x%. Then once you fuze it, it will become materia lv.x hp+999%. Then once you have that you can fuze the new materia with another DMW and one hero drink to get materia lv.x +atk100 . This wont work with every materia but there are ways around that.

  121. Beowulf June 22, 2008 Reply

    and you dont have to use a hero drink. You could use:
    darkmatter
    lunar harp
    zeio nut
    mythril
    adamantite
    gysahl greens

    All will have the same effect. A maxed out materia :)

    hi.. why my hp 9999 only? how do you guys make it 50K? do i have to make my curaga hp+999% then i can? cuz my curaga only add 220%hp. but with my lvl 55 character.. i think i should have more than 15k hp…

    nvm… i get it already… lols

  125. brian June 24, 2008 Reply

    gd luck to you in defeating minerva without costly punch

    for me i think i will fuse a +100 att materia to hack and slash minerva but the battle will be long cause minerva has high stats also not forgetting hp

    then go in with a max vitality and spirit 255 Zack not forgeting equips that give you auto barrier and m-barrier like the protect ring

    hope you can dogde minerva magical attacks as they are all possible to evade even to her ultima spell

    try and see if you still have free movement to the town area in Nibelheim, if so talk to the boy hanging around the square to trigger the 7 wonder quest

    if you managed to do the above, proceed to the water tower to get your phoenix materia, if you cant get to this part, then phoenix will not be available anymore till you start a new game plus

    ok so i missed the phoenix invoc one more question how can i have full cure materia is there a fusion way ?

  133. brian June 26, 2008 Reply

    there is no way of fusing a full cure materia

    you can get one from the magic pot in mission 7-6-6, but it is only obtainable after you got your genji shield from it

    1st try – genji shield
    2nd try – impervious
    3rd try – full cure materia

    i got my full cure materia this way

    another way is a rare steal from the mission boss in 9-6-5, remember it must be a rare steal so equip the mogs amulet if not the normal steal is adamantite

    hey, im fairly new to this kind of game, and im trying to find brutal. All that has been said so far is how to find adaman bangle, but i need brutal in order to do 99999 dmg correct? Which mission treasure chest or reward is it?

  135. brian June 27, 2008 Reply

    where you can get brutal item

    mission reward in 7-4-6, 9-5-1

    treasure chest in 9-6-3

    Found it really helpful and easy to use.

    When I finished chapter 5, I start doing heaps of the mission and trying to max my stats and beat Minerva.
    I did that last night, with my stat VIT and SPR at 255, 17mil SP with SP Barrier x2 and SP Master (total of level 5), and Costly Punch.

    Didnt take too long at all, was left with 5-6mil SP and only used 3-4 Phoenix Downs.

    Anyway thanks for the guide again, cos I wouldnt have gotten far without it.

    Very nice guide and follow all instructions.

    Im new to Crisis Core but old FF player.

    So my question is I already hunt all items needed for HP+999% and fuse it to Curaga so the result is Curaga HP+999% but when I equip it my Hp is only 9999 not 99999. anyone answer please and thanks in advance.

  148. Jhun July 8, 2008 Reply

    got my answer to my question it needs adaman bangle or genji armor wooh…

    another problem I equipped adaman bangle and my hp is only 37135 not 99999 anyone answer??? and how do I make my smart consumer with hp+ not ap+.

  149. brian July 8, 2008 Reply

    yah equipping the adaman bangle enables you to break your hp limit

    then to fuse a smart consumer with hp+999% you can try this

    to get smart consumer you need a steal materia and a dash materia

    if you have access to minerva then do the below option

    fuse 2 libras materias with a fat chocobo feather and you will get a libra with hp+40%

    then fuse the above libra with another libra and throw in 99 phoenix downs to get libra with hp+999%

    and finally fuse the steal materia with the libra +999% hp to get your smart consumer +999% hp

    if you not do have ebough sp for fusing then refer to the other posts in this website to get info on how to get more sp

    Hey guys, quick tip on way easier + 999% HP status. Simply buy the HP Ups from the shop, as well as 80 X – potions. Combine two HP ups and 80 X potions, way higher percentage, way less time. For those who have the Minerva mission unlocked, simply steal the 99 phoenix downs, get the two Hp ups, and fuse 80 phoenix downs with the hp ups, that’s 810 percent right there. Hope it helps!

    dude Im already on last save point of the game where I will fight the 3 last boss.

    My problem again is I still have locked missions how do I unlocked them?

    Im already 92% mission complete and have access to minerva (but I still not defeat it).

  162. brian July 17, 2008 Reply

    some missions will automatically unlocked when you complete and progress into another chapter but there are some missions that need to be unlocked during the gameplay itself, like talking to npcs or activating a particular scenario in order to unlock the mission and carry on with the other missions

    for example

    in chapter 6, did you walk around loveless avenue and talk to certain npcs to activate the mini game of catching the wutai spies to unlock missions 4-3-1 to 4-3-6

    since you have come to the end of the game already there is no way to unlock other missions that were supposed to be done during the gameplay as the final chance where you are able to unlock all missions successfully is during chapter 8 or earlier

    all you can do now is to complete the game and save with a new game + and go thru everything in your new gameplay and do all the missions again and try to unlock every missions the next time round

    @psp_coyo: errr.. it’s not the ending that made the game for me, but rather Zack’s character development. The ending should’ve been known to you if you played FF VII or are familiar with it.

    @james: once the materia you have is already costly punch, you can’t combine it with hp+ even if it’s master. You have to combine it with 99 Phoenix Downs or 99 Fat Chocobo Feather to make it Costly Punch w/ HP+ 999%

    on curaga, if I remember correctly, you can use HP+ 999% and add it to a mastered Curaga Materia to for Curaga + HP 999%

    Hey mate there is a much easier way. You can just steal 99 phoenix down from minerva like forever and fuse them with HP up for HP+999%. Then you can turn this hp to vit +100. And so on and so on. I didnt try with the other stats but i think it can be done. And maybe the trick so that costly punch or any other skill can become the “Costly punch *stat* +100″ can be done too. Also you can sell the phoenix downs and buy materia to convert for huge amounts of sp.

Once you have that try to go to minerva (there are some tricky missions though along the way) I had 3 octaslash materia the two mastered and the third level 4 to get genji shield but you can do it without that too. Now i am in the proccess to master jack ^^ kave 3/4 genji and i am waiting for the armor. At DMW only cloud and Tseng at 80%. Wish me luck ^^ My point is that when i saw the crazy builds on the internet i thought i was too difficult to do it. But its not that hard afterall. So give it a try ^^

    I’ve found a much easier and time saving way of farming. In mission 7-6-6 The determined recruiter you fight Lesser Worms, if you have mogs amulet equipped they each drop a Dark Matter and you always fight 3 at a time, just got 99 Dark Matters in less than an hour. Then fuse with your materia and change to what you want (Adamatite for VIT etc). Hope this helps people, great guide BTW, been very useful.

    Also, just incase people know this already but when gathering SP killing movers you get 8000SP for defeating the mover. However if you kill the enemy with the mover first then kill the mover this becomes 8000SP x 2, same if there are 2 other enemies with the mover but 8000SP x 3.

    i found out the easiest way get the stat raisers, first go to 663 the don *pervert* corneo, equip mogs and the thing that doubles items dropped, usually 3 worms come out during each encounter, that way u get 6x dark matter in 1 fight!!
    there are movers here too, so 663 is the best place for sp gathering and dark matter farming, hope this helps!! :D

    Hi there.

    I have Mug MASTER AP+100%. And I want to make it have +100 VIT, but everytime I try to fuse it with something else it gives me Gill Toss which I don’t want.

    Know any tips for this?

  237. sylv3rblade November 8, 2008 Reply

    @MrStick:
    fuse it with another AP+ AND Adamantite

  238. MrStick November 9, 2008 Reply

    Sylv3r, if I fuse Mug Master AP+100% with a DMW AP+ or Steal AP+ with Adamantites, it still gives me Gill Toss.

  239. sylv3rblade November 9, 2008 Reply

    ah my bad.. I didn’t read it at first as Mug.. I thought it was AP Up+

    sadly you can’t because Mug can only be created via:

    Mug : Smart Consumer (M) + Libra or any Materia with a grade that is less than or equal to 4.
    Mug: Steal + Electrocute

    i have adaman bangle already, do i have to fuse it with something? because i dont want to waste accessory slots by equipping it all the time. im using curaga +850% hp btw.

  241. MrStick November 9, 2008 Reply

    Oh I see.
    I did some research and came across the ‘degrading materia’ method. But its a bit long. I could’ve done it, but unfortunately, my other ‘Mug’ materias just dissapeared!!! I don’t know if I ‘accidently’ used them to fuse, or SP Convert!!!

    But I think creating another one will be easer, but where do I get more ‘Smart Consumers? I only have 1.

    Thanks for the help

    AARGGH!!! I’m so annoyyed!!!

    I did the Magic Pot mission again to get Full Cure. After 30 minutes of my DMW finally getting Sephiroth, I end up getting another Genji Shield as I had it already equipped!!! And now after another 45 minutes, I never got Sephiroth DWM after like 10 encounters with the Magic pot, even though I have 2 Sephiroth DMW materias equipped. Seems like it doesn’t make a difference to me having it or not!!!!!

    @MrStick:
    you can check out page 3 of the guide for the list of materia fusion formulas. On getting magic pot yeah, it’s really frustrating. I spend a whole week before getting it to work.

  244. MrStick November 10, 2008 Reply

    Aaah no worries. lol, I managed to create a Smart Consumer and a new Mug, and now I have Mug lvl 1 VIT+100. I managed to get SPR+100, MAG+100, LCK+100 and ATK+100 on my materias. and Have HP+999% on like 7 or 8 different materias, where I can easily change them to LCK, ATK, VIT, SPR or MAG.

    I have Genji Shield, Glove, Armor and Ziedrich on. My stats are:
    Level 85
    99,999HP
    ATK 164
    VIT 255
    MAG 255
    SPR 255
    LCK 146

    But I want to increase my LCK, how do I do that? I heard its best to have LCK 155+ for Minerva.

    And thanks again or the help/tips. Oh and I left Magic Pot for now. Going to concentrate on Minerva XD. But blimey, a week!! I managed to get the Genji Shield first time without THAT much trouble, but it took the right mick the second time. I didn’t want another Genji Shield!!!! ARGH! lol

    skedoodle. Sorry didn’t see your comment there.
    First of all, you have to clarify what your asking about.
    Why do you want to fuse your Adaman Bangle with something?
    What exactly do you want to know/ask?

  246. skidoodle November 10, 2008 Reply

    @ mr stick

    adaman bangle cant be fused with other materia? i have it equipped right now and im using curaga +999% hp. I wanna know if you still get the hp break effect if its fused with other materia. i dont wanna waste accesory slots by equipping it all the time :P

    i just started chapter 6 and im level 55, im using curaga(master) +hp999%, electrocute (leveling it up so i can make ultima) , mug(master) +ap250%, wall (master)mag +8, vit up + (level 1), atk up +24 (master)

    is this any good?

  247. MrStick November 11, 2008 Reply

    @Skidoodle

    You can not transfer accessory stats to materia, unfortunately. Therefore, it won’t make a difference if you fuse it, it will just be wasted. Also, in missions Mission 2-5-2 and Mission 3-5-4 you can get Ultima. And, you don’t need Electrocute to get Ultima. Flare and Energy will do perfectly fine. That’s how I made my Ultima.

    With regards to your materia. Thats pretty decent for the point where you are. But personally, I believe Tri-Thunder, or Hell Thundaga is better than Electrocute as its more accurate. But that depends on you and if you have them.

    What other accessories do you have equipped?

    Oh by the way Sylv3r. I’m alright now. Don’t need to help. Also, why does everyone panic when it comes to Minerva?

  248. hi November 11, 2008 Reply

    I know. I’ve already beaten her and gotten the Divine Slayer and the Heike Soul. It was easy. I only used like 8 or 9 phoenix down, 2 or 3 elixers, 2 ethers and somas, and like roughly less than 20 curagas and defeated her easily. Was quite suprised. XD

    Now, just have to finish the game again (finished it 3 times, but didn’t save lol), get minerva again on Hard and defeat her when she has 20mil HP!!!! wowzers!

  250. skidoodle November 11, 2008 Reply

    @mr stick

    im currenty using adaman bangle, brutal, shinra beta + and either mog’s amulet, ribbon, safety bit, wizard armlet depending on the mission/ situation.

    i just got costly punch the other day.

    my hp is only 54k+ and im using a combo of curaga +999%hp and hp up + level 3 +280%. what should i add so that my hp can go to 99,999?

  251. MrStick November 12, 2008 Reply

    I see. Well thats a good combo for the accessories. To get your HP to 99,999, the ideal thing is to have 2 materias that have HP+999%. But even if YOU have that, you won’t have 99,999 as your at level 55 your HP is around 4,000. Thus, your HP can only get to 80,000 MAX at the moment. Once you get to Level 70ish, you should have 5,000, which will then give you 99,999hp. Also, in my advice, dont concentrate too much on Mag,Atk, Vit and Spr Up’s. I think its a waste of time leveling them up. Sure you can level up one of each ++ Ups. but not the regular ones. If your thinking why and that you need it to get your materia to +100 whatever. well, there is a better way. How? Using Phoenix downs. Fuse the desired materia to another materia which will give you the same result i.e.

    Quake with Dash, will give you Quake. Therefore, Fuse them together along with 1 Fat Chocobo Feather. This will make the Quake become Quake Lvl 1 hp+10% or more, depending what ‘Mag+’ it already has. After that, Fuse the new Quake with another Dash/Libra/Quake with 98 Phoenix Downs (or less, depending on how much hp+% it is at), and it will give you Quake Hp+999%. After that, simple fuse it again with another materia along with Adamantite, Gyshal Green, Mythril, Hero Drink or whatever to get your desired 100+. Where can you get 99 Phoenix downs? When you unlock the Minerva mission! Just steal it from that thing! XD [Have Mug and Brigand's Glove equipped, mug her, then die, and wala!]

    Oh and also, try not to Master every materia like I tried to do!!! Because some materia, that you will be using again minerva or whatever, you may need to add +100 to it, but you won’t be able to get the same materia when fusing as its Mastered. For example, Mug, once its mastered and you want it to have Vit +100, and fuse it with dash or something, you will always end up with Gill Toss. You can get around this, by degrading your materia, but its a long and confusing method. Therefore, keep atleast 1 mug lvl4 or below.

    Hope that helps

  252. skidoodle November 12, 2008 Reply

    thanks. very useful info. im currently finishing most of the missions so that i can unlock mission 9-3-4 so i can start stat modifying. so what materia would be good with the +999% hp modifier? is costly punch good?

    btw, how should i know which items to sell and which materia to sp convert, besides those that can be bought from shops? i currently have a lot of extra junk in my inventory because of all the missions ive been doing.

  253. MrStick November 13, 2008 Reply

    Your welcome :). Glad it helped.
    Well, yes, that is a good choice, as its a main materia to use against Minerva. Two materias that I believe you should equip with HP+999% are Curaga and Costly Punch. I, however, had several other materia with HP+999% or Vit+100, as I didn’t need the one that I already had against minerva. Quake is a really good Materia as well as Flare. Flare is more quicker than Ultima, but Ultima is generally more powerful (from what I have gathered).

    Hmmm, quite a lengthy discussion. come to http://www.tehgreat5.chatango.com and we can discuss things there (when we’re both on at the same time :P)

  254. skidoodle November 13, 2008 Reply

    hmmkay, i checked your site and you weren’t there haha. so my costly punch is level 2 right now (atk +2 i think), i should fuse it with which materia to ensure that i’ll get costly punch +999% hp?

    i just finished unlocking mission 9-3-4, cant wait to get started on stat modifying! :))

    i also got energy and flare. so next materia to master should be ultima?

  255. MrStick November 14, 2008 Reply

    Aah sorry. I was out at that time. We live in different time zones (UK for me). Sorry about that.

    But yeah, I have 8 Ultimas, of which 1 was created (fusion), along with 8 Energys, 7 Flares and 5 Electorcutes and 2 Costly Punches (can have more if I want, and also, I finished all missions). So hopefully, you should end up with something like that.

    Well, I can’t remember what exactly I fused it with, I think it was Libra or Dash. But hey, while your reading this go back to the site I sent you.

  256. skidoodle November 14, 2008 Reply

    okay okay. i already made ultima and currently in the process of mastering it. im just doing adamantine farming right now, too lazy to continue with the story.

    got lots of extra materia lying around, should i just convert them to sp?

    also does the stat modifier trick work for fat chocobo feather as well?

  257. MrStick November 15, 2008 Reply

    Oh I see. Convert? Well, depends on what materia they are and how many of them you have.

    Like I said, you don’t have to do farming for things like that.Once you get Minerva, everything is more than jolly good.

    Fat Chocobo Feathers play an important role in Stat Modifying. Using it along with the desired materia, you’ll change its effect to ‘+HP??%’. Once you have that, fuse the new materia again, using 99 phoenix downs (if the materia has 200%, you can use 80p hoenix downs). That will give you 999%, and then fuse once more along with an Adamantine to get SPR or whatever!

    Farming for them is more effort and time consuming
    If you want, try to get a materia with +100 ATK (you should have Vital Slash or something with +65 ATK) it will be usefull against the level 9 mission to get to minerva. Also, once you’ve done 9-5-6. You’ll get Ziedrich, which is reaally good. Boosts up most of your stats. By the way, try getting the Genji Shield I think from Majic Pot in Mission 7-6-6. But it will ask for ‘Gil Toss’, ‘Costly Punch’, ‘99,999 damage’ and ‘Octoslash’. So you still have quite a bit to go until you get to there, but just thought of letting you know before hand

  258. skidoodle November 15, 2008 Reply

    oh. im in the process of finishing all the missions in 9-4. but i keep dying :))

    Also, I know about the Magic Pot. I spent hours on it. I wanted Full Cure. I managed to get Octaslash, 3 times succesfully (took me 3 hours or so) but I didn’t get Full Cure, got another Genji Shield and then the 2 other times got Impervious twice -_- which took the pi** a lot!!! ARGH!! so I just couldn’t be bothered and finished the game.

    I also beat Minerva again for the fun of it lol

    When I tried it I had 4 Octaslashes (3 mastered with 1 at level 2, which gave me Octaslash x22) Costly Punch and Gil Toss XD

    @Noob. Make sure you attack is over 100 first. And as Sylv3r said, use Brutal along with Costly Punch to deliver 99,999 damage. BUT make sure your HP is not at break. Otherwise it won’t work.

    @SafeCloud.
    Aah yes that is a way to get the Goblin Punch. Also you get it in a mission later on. Another way is, when you go to Zacks hometome, before fighting Dr.Hollander, theres a part where you come to waterfall. after having a few battles there, you can play a mini game. Do very good in the mini-game, or something like that, and you’ll get Goblin Punch. I actually missed this part XD

    @Ziedrich
    Regarding the Heike Soul, you can only get it once you defeat Minerva. Yes, Minerva, and also complete every mission = have 100%.

    Now on to defeating Mako Ifrit, make sure you have atleast 80,000hp. This is to make it easier for you. And also, boost up your MAG and VIT to around 200 if you can. Using Hell Blizzaga or something against Mako Ifrit should do big damage. Heal yourself regularly. I think I beat him with normal attacks. I had the Zeidrich equipped which boosted my stats a lot. Make sure you have that XD.

    Hope that helps

    At mission 7-6-6, the first time you get the Genji Shield. If you equip it, the second time you will get Genji Shield. The third time you might get Impervious or Full Cure. For me, I got Genji Shield for the first 2 times, and then the 3rd and 4th time I got Impervious. So yeah, it is frustrating.

    And to get the Cactuar Missions, in Mission 3-1-3, defeat the Cactuar there, and you will unlock the Cactuar missions.

    Also, yes, get all DMWs to 100%, then you will get the Genji armor. You get Cactuar from defeat him in the Cactuar mission, and Phoenix, you will get when your at Nibelhiem as part of a side quest when you talk to a boy about some wonders.
    ——————-
    Unfortunately, your stats are not good enough to defeat Minerva.

    Try having your materia like this. Doesn’t have to be the same materia, but the stats are vital. This was my setup and stats:

    My stats are:
    Level 87
    99,999HP
    ATK 165
    VIT 255
    MAG 255
    SPR 255
    LCK 146

    Curaga HP+999%
    Costly Punch HP+999%
    Quake LCK+100
    Mug VIT+100
    Assault Twister/Tri-Fire SPR+100
    Flare MAG+100 [better to have it LCK+100 so your luck is 255]

    Accessories: Genji Shield, Genji Glove, Genji Armor and Ziedrich on.

    ———-

    Have something like that with those stats Doesn’t have to be the same materia. But Curaga and Costly Punch are VITAL, and Mug if you don’t have at least 20 phoenix downs (just in case)! And same with having at least 70,000hp (make sure you have 99,9999 though, otherwise, if you get BREAK HP, costly punch won’t work)
    AP and MP are not that important. Having around 350 of both is enough,as you wont be using it much. Having luck MAX is really beneficial. ATK is not that important, but your attack will be above 140 if your level 70+ and have Zeidrich eqquipped.

    Make sure you start the battle with Minerva with Raise on. And steal 99 Phoenix Downs from her. Keep using Costly Punch and block all her attacks as much as you can. Make sure you DEFFINETLY block Ultima, and have your finger on ‘Curaga’. As soon as Ultima takes a whooping 65,000hp off you or so, Cure your self. Sometimes she does it twice in a row. Also, as soon as you see the ‘Judgement Arrow’ sign at the top, go to your Items. After the move, quickly use a Phoenix down, and use an Elixir to recover you HP, MP and AP. Keep repeating this, and in no time, you should defeat her. It only takes no more than 110 Costly Punches XD (she has 10million HP, but she cures herself).

    I hope that Helps!

    EDIT: Currently, I am re-doing the game on hard to defeat her when she has 20million!. No where near getting her yet though, just became 1st Class XD

    Congratulations on defeating Minerva!
    Was it really that hard? And yes, you get Divine Slayer. Its pretty decent actually.

    Also. You can’t change your SP Master, well, don’t think you can :S. I think its a high level materia. You can fuse it with Gil Toss to get Gil Toss. But it also depends on the level – if its mastered or what? And degrading is not easy, its quite hard to understand it etc.

    And personally, don’t worry too much about it. Steal 99 Phoenix downs. Fuse your desired materia with another materia that will give you the same materia along with a Fat Chocobo Feather. This will make your materia have hp+??%. fuse that materia again with another to get same materia with 99 phoenix downs. your materia should now have hp+999%. fuse it one last time again, but use mythril, or whatever to get you your LCK, and it will be +100!!!.

    NOTE: hp 10% = +1 for lck,mag,spr,vit,atk.

    100%= 10, 75%=75 etc.

    Hope that helps.

    How do I get access to tri – fire/thunder/ice attacks, Ultima, Flare, Energy, etc. (strongest magic)?

    Also is Mug an important materia? And whats the difference between Mug and Steal.

    I notice on the front page the creator had Smart Consumer materia and I just made it myself but it doesn’t seem too useful.

    Also what type of stats should I fuse together? I figured we won’t need ATK +100 since you’ll be using Costly Punch mostly or am I mistaken?

    Any help is appreciated I just wanna be able to beat the Strongest Boss

    @Ricky Bobby,
    Its always useful/helpful if you state where you are in the game, your level etc. What your saying is too vague, as it seems you still have quite some time to go. Seems like you didn’t quite read one of my previous posts regarding these materia, well, you will get many Ultimas, Flare, Tr-Fire and Tri-Thunder during the game.

    Whats so good about Smart Consumer you say? It increases the effect of consumable items. May not sound that useful, but doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep it. Also, the difference between Steal and Mug is obvious. Steal just steals from the enemy, that’s it. While Mug does not only steal, but also hurts the enemy – causing it some damage, so its an attack and steal put together. Mug is very useful indeed. Keep them all the time.

    Finally, yes Costly Punch is needed. And again, seems like you didn’t read my previous posts as I already mentioned defeat the hardest boss/Minerva. Please scroll up and read them.

    You n00b!!! You shouldn’t have restarted again!! Once you’ve killed minerva, you should’ve just completed the missions to 100% then and get the Heike Soul. It would make things much easier! But also, the Heike Soul is not good to use against Minerva unless you have lots of SP like over 10million. I have 5mill. Went to get a phoenix downs from her twice or thrice. Ended up with 2.9 million SP, as I had Heike Soul which has SP Master level 1 or something, which uses SP to make your defense and attack stronger.

    Hope that helps

    hey i wanted to show you a couple of neat stuff for the materia fusion guide. for the Dark magic stuff (Dark fire, Dark thunder, Dark Blizzard, etc.) if you actually fuse a fire(m)+esuna(m) then the result is a Hell fire. Do the same to get Hell Fira and Hell Firaga and to get Hell Blizzard or Hell Blizzara or Hell Blizzaga, just put in Blizzard(m)+esuna(m) and same goes with thunder. The difference between Hell and Dark is that Hell has a higher chance of inflicting a bad status on the monster than Dark does. plus, Hell does a little more damage.

    aaaah!! That takes the mick Zeidrich!!!!
    Ok then, understandable. This time becarefull, try doing all the missions you can and then move on in the game xD. Also, did you do the Wutai spies?

    By the way, did you finish the game or restart from the beginning? If you restarted a new game you are a n00b! You should finish off the game, so you keep your stats and materia, and then the next game will be easy to do!!!

    Sasuke, you can buy them materia later on in the game. But yes, you can get them through fusion like that.

    Well Quincy, don’t worry too much about it. I think you have to fuse it with a Level 4 Curaga. That should work, I hope.

    mr stick! its me again! hahaha!

    im at chapter 9 and im really pissed with the 4th wonder mini quest. i cant find the combo for the safe.

    im at lvl 78 now and im using

    curaga hp +999%
    costly punch hp+950%
    tri thundaga (cant remember the stat it has, i think mp + something %)
    flare +30 mag,
    ultima +350% mp
    and mug +100 vit

    im adamantine farming so i can modify the flare and ultima stat to atk and spr respectively, i have a question though, does luk really affect the dmw? i thought it only affects crit?

    and should i modify my accessories?

    besides always having adaman bangle and brutal equipped, i sometimes use a combo of power and energy suit or ribbon and safety bit.

    and another question! why does my ap sometimes go to 0 when i equip the power suit and unequip a materia that adds ap?

  286. MrStick December 2, 2008 Reply

    @Zeidrich. That really does take the piss :( its a shame its those two missions in midgar. Grrr. Well, things should be easier for you now :)

    Skidoodle! Yo man!

    78? Blimey, not bad. Your stats are ok, but you won’t need the mp+, instead you’ll need 2 Hp+ materias (fused with curaga like you have), and the rest 4 materias should have Lck+100, Vit+100, Spr+100 and Mag+100. Atk is not that important. You need this for Minerva.

    Don’t waste time on farming. Its not needed. Things get much easier as soon as you unlock Minerva. Your HP is 99,999 which is really good. Just have Zeidrich equipped with Genji Armor and Shield, and materias like quake, and your good to go in doing the 6-6-? missions! If you don’t have the Genjis, get them instead of wasting time on farming!!! Oh wait, you get Zeidrich at mission 6-5-6. But use brutal and other attack ups. (materia with atk+ something) along with costly punch should be very helpful actually. And LUCK is important, as it decreases critical damage, more success of critical hits for you etc. From what I’ve heard, it does effect dmw. But I didn’t notice that lol. xD

    Lastly, power suit is only for your attack and VIT or was it SPR. It reduces your MAG and VIT/SPR. Something for the other accessories. its not important, leave it.

    Leave your accessories. as they are.

    Hope that helps

    thanks sir stick. i just finished defeating mako ifrit which took me like…. 10 or more tries. he was such a handful. i got ziedrich from this chest in mission 9-5- something. and i already bought genji helm.

    now im kinda stuck at the mission with the three kakutars. i always die when they die. so whats up with that? i hit them with costly punch, and the next thing i know i have 0 hp.

    im lvl 80 right now btw.

  293. MrStick December 4, 2008 Reply

    @Aiyen, you will get plenty of Assault Twisters throughout the game. It seems like you just started. Play the game for a bit longer and you will get it.

    Greetings Skidoodle! lol Sir Stick xD I like :P

    Well done in beating him!! Yeah I know what you mean, he was a pain. How did I defeat him? Aah yes. Attacked with Costly Punch and blocked his attacks until he gave an opening. And Well Done on getting the Zeidrich :D Now things get easier!

    Have Zeidrich Equipped with break HP and Attack (either the other Genji’s or Brutal and that). And the 4th accessorie, have errm…. anything that will be benefit for you. Make sure your stats like VIT and SPR are 200. The trick in beating them, which I did, and yes, I had a lot of problems with those little ******s myself! If there are 2 or more, try to make them together, and then hit one with costly punch and hopefully it should hit the other cactuars behind it giving 99,999 damage to all 3, try doing 2 Costly Punches and then RUN AWAY!! Run around getting near them and try to avoid their 1000 needles and do it again, always keep your HP up above 70k for better survival chance. This should do the trick. Also, try to avoid the battles by hugging the walls! I did this A LOT in the 6-6-? missions. Another way is, what I did, is when my hp was full, I just tried escaping, ended up loosing 40k or so HP, but just used Potions (they cure 9999 and are cheap, better than hi-potions in my case).

    OH and you could try this, not sure if it will work or be effective enough, but have dual cast equipped and your MAG at 255. Equip Tri-Fire and use it agains them. Zack will release 6 shots. At normal enemy it should do around 25-30k damage each. A good thing about it is that its long range. So you can stay away from them instead of trying to get close with the Costly Punch (still have it equipped). But it might not work, as its Cactuar!

    Well, try it and let me know how it goes!!

  297. skidoodle December 5, 2008 Reply

    sir stick!

    okay, i tried killing cactuar with the tri fire technique you suggested, and it took me like… 20 minutes to kill all 3. when i got to minerva, the battle didnt even last 20 seconds. as soon as i stepped i front and tried to attack, bang! i get hit with a spell, thors hammer i think, and my face hit the ground.

    i got genji shield from magic pot though! i got it in my second attempt, coz my first attempt, the dmw didnt do octaslash, i did rush asssault but i was lucky enough to encounter magic pot 2 times in a row!

    i have a question, is dualcast essential in defeating minerva? i mean, its always useful to cast curaga 2 times in a row right?

  298. MrStick December 6, 2008 Reply

    @Aric,
    You have to have missions 6-6-1. Minerva is at 6-6-6. To get missions 6-6-1 you have to complete missions 6-5-6. So complete missions 6-2-6 and 6-3-6 and then do the rest of the missions for 6-4-1 and onwards untill you get to Minerva. Its not easy by the way. So be prepared! (overall, you have to be at Chapter 6 in the game where you talk to the Shinra Manager and secretary in the main Shinra HQ Hall)

    *slaps forehead* Skidoodle! I said try using the tri-fire technique if it proves to be useful! lol. Sorry I wasn’t clear on that. But atleast you did it xD. Sorry again. I used the costly punch way. lol

    With regards to Minerva, look at my comment on her – defeating her and my stats. (post 271). Atleast have stats like that, if not like that, then something similar. Doesn’t have to be the same materia, it can be anything, but Costly Punch and Curaga are ESSENTIAL.

    Also, read my other post, which is Post 251, for how to get +100 on your materia (only selected materia!, you have to see which is suitable when doing the first step). If you need more clarification, please ask. But! read what I said in those posts CAREFULLY!. lol.

    Hmmm, Dualcast with Curaga. Thats a great idea. It works and is very effective. How comes that didn’t come to my head? Damn, oh well. Great Contribution Skidoodle! You make me proud!! :D

  301. skidoodle December 6, 2008 Reply

    glad to be of help mr stick :) so i tried to defeat minerva again last night, i dont know how long that battle was taking me. and how many phoenix downs it took. i was getting pretty bored, especially with the whole judgement arrow-elixir-phoenix down-repeat process so i just let myself die. i was experimenting on which combo of materia was good but then again, costly punch is the most effective.

    my current lineup besides curaga hp+999% and costly punch+950% is…

    tri fire +100 mag
    mug +100 vit
    quake +100 spr
    (i forgot) +100 luk

    right now, im trying to get all DMW to 100%, the only dmw left are cloud (90%), cissnei (90%) and genesis (10%)
    its kinda frustrating too coz when cissnei comes up in the modulating phase, it changes to the reel where bahamut and all the others are.

    oh! and this may be a little off topic but i watched FF7 last order last night and it was awesome! lol.

  303. MrStick December 7, 2008 Reply

    Lol Zeidrich, it is 9-6-6. My mistake! I didn’t remember that it was a mistake, but was too late lol.

    And I know how you feel. It is a disappointment on the fact it has SP Master. I lost 2million SP when getting 99 phoenix downs from her twice. Didn’t realise it until I noticed my SP went from 5mill to 2.9 million or something like that.

    @Skidoodle, lol! It took me not even 10 minutes to defeat her. Simple use as many Costly Punches as you can until her next attack and block or evade. It took me roughly 10 phoenix downs and 2 elixirs. Wasn’t that hard to be honest.

    About mastering your DMW to 100%, I know it was frustrating for me as well. It took me over A LOT of hours to get Sephiroth from 75% to 100%. And trust me, you don’t want to know the number of hours lol.

    @Quincy. Then I don’t know. I fused my Curaga and HP+ aaaages ago. Can’t remember what I did. I think I fused my HP+ to get something else with HP+???% and then fused that with Curuga to get my Curaga with the HP+???%. Something like that. Save and then experiment the obvious fusions! Sorry xD

    Do i have to get to chapter 11 to unlock all the memories? and is it true that you have to set your dmw to heavenly before you can view the memories in genesis’ dmw?

    the problem i have with minerva is she’s too aggressive, and keeps on using the crimson flare – flash slash combo. i cant get close to her. and when i hit her with costly punch, right away she uses thors hammer or that feather thing to damage me.

    u can sometimes cannot be hit by photon feather when ur near to minerva…or simply block it

    thor’s hammer–ucan dodge it with the right timing, when she hammers her staff

    crimson flare–block it, yes you should block it..

    flash slash—if u raise ur luck to 155 above she can’t double hit her flash slash but it’s up 2 u…

    by the way what’s ur stats???

  309. MrStick December 9, 2008 Reply

    @Quincy
    Smart Consumer increases the effects of consumable items such as; Potion, Ether, Soma….

    @Zeidrich
    :O You got Full Cure! Before me!? :O lol. No problem. Unfortunately, you can’t fuse it to get the same results. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be saying have Curaga with HP+999%, and instead have Full Cure. We use Curaga as you can fuse it to get the same result. However, we don’t, well more like can’t use Full Cure as it will always give you a different result. There are a few materia that you can not fuse to get back to the original state. Full Cure is one of them.

    @Skidoodle, as Zeidrich said. I usually throw 2 or 3 Costly Punches until she does Photon Feathers, and just stay close to her to avoid it, if anything get hit once or twice which only does 2500 damage roughly, or not even that. Sometimes I dodge ‘em :D.
    Thors hammer is easy to judge. As you as you see it at the top ‘Thors Hammer’ wait a second or two and then dodge. It won’t take long to get used to it. Her Flash Slash, I most of the time dodge it.
    With regards to her Crimson Flare, always get right close to her and keep on blocking. If you don’t it may take upto 23,000 off you, if you block it gets reduced to 3,000 or so. As soon as your effected by its hit, quickly throw a good 2 or 3 Costly Punches.

    The one where she freezes you, you can reduce the damage by blocking just in time. Oh and keep the Genji Shield on (the one with Auto-Regen). Its EXTREMELY useful. I had it when I first battled her seriously. And it was a great help.I didn’t worry too much on curing as long as my HP was above 75,000, even though the ice move took about 12,000.

    As soon as you see ‘Judgement Arrow’ above, quickly put your finger on to the items list. As soon as judgement arrow is done, click on your items, left, and straight away use a phoenix down. It only took me no more than 10 (could have been 8 or 9 lol)

    Your stats seem to be good like mine – should be if your at level 80ish. So I don’t see why your facing problems.

    I don’t think you need to ask anymore. Just look at my stats and method.

    Oh and about unlocking all memories, I don’t know if you have to be at chapter 11. I thought you do, but not sure. I was at the last chapter when I got 100%. Also, about the heavenly thing, don’t have a clue on that. The last 2 people I had to get to 100% was Cloud, and the worst Sephiroth. Blimey! Lets not go how long it took me to get Sephiroth!!!!!

  315. MrStick December 10, 2008 Reply

    Zeidrich, unfortunately, I can’t say anything on that, apart from don’t think so. I’m not sure, haven’t tried it.

    Also, sorry for any mistakes I make in my information. I stopped playing it for quite some time, been busy, so starting to forget lol. And yeah, it was Genji Armor that has regen.

    @Curious. Its not that difficult. Just keep hitting it with Costly Punch. Thats the main key in defeating strong enemies. You can try equipping Tri-Fire or Tri-Thunder along with Dualcast and see how effective that is. When I uses Tri-Fire and Dualcast on a monster it does 25,000 x6, which is 150,000 damage approximately. But it does drain your MP a lot xD.

    @Skidoodle, try having these equipped: Genji Shield, Genji Glove, Genji Armor and Ziedrich.

    Skidoodle, I waited until I was at the last chapter to get my DMW to 100%. And don’t loose hope. Your DMW percentage goes up when you view a new cut scene clip in the DMW mode.[not movie cut scene]. Sometimes you keep viewing the same one. But just wait, you’ll come across a new one and it will boost up your percentage.

    For Cissnei, buy 4 Lucky Star materias and, equip them along with Moogle materia. Go into a the first few mission where you fight 50 or so Soldiers, and just leave the PSP – the DMW will keep on spining, you’ll get attacked and loose a bit of hp. While this happens, your bound to get Moogle Boost, level up your materia, which will increase your chances of getting that DMW. – if you understand what I mean.

    Once you have 4 (or 5, and its ideal to have quake as your 6th materia in my opinion) or so Mastered Lucky Star Materias, do the battle again but without Moogle Boost. This will increase your chances of getting Cissneis DMW by I think x25. You’ll have LOADS of HP, so it wouldn’t matter if you get attacked 100 or so damage. Just heal yourself when you want/need to.

    You can do the samething but with 1 or 2 Moogle Materia and the rest 4 other materias and master them this way – like I did. I just left the psp, and just pressed a button to prevent it from going on to sleep mode. Once you got your materia mastered (when the Moogle is at Lvl 5, your materia will be mastered, same with if its Lvl 4. If its Lvl 3, your materia goes from lvl 1 to level 4 – 3 levels up. Same thing with Lvl 2 and 1.

    I hope that’s clear. Sorry if my explanation is not very clear – in a rush xD.

    dont worry sir stick i get your explanation :)

    i finally defeated minerva, it took me like 15 minutes, got a close call when she did ultima twice and then judgement arrow. i dont know how the heck i survived that. and to top it off, i finally got cloud and cissneis dmw to 100%. all thats left is genesis. currently trying to get it to 100%.

    im doing the 200 soldier thing mission with divine slayer, ziedrich, the ring with auto regen and genji shield.

    Congratulations!!! You made me proud :D.

    Aaah, I know what you mean about the two Ultimas and Judgement Arrow. Happened to me. But mine was worse. I accidently pressed on ‘Curaga’ while she was doing her Ultima, which lead to Zack letting go of block and trying to cure, but it was just suicide and I died… BUT fortunately, I had raise on, and as soon as I used a Phoenix down, she did JA (Judgement Arrow). It was a very close call indeed.

    And well done! Don’t you have Genji Armor? Why not use that for Auto-Regen? And are you doing the 200 Soldier mission for leveling up etc?

  329. MrStick December 14, 2008 Reply

    To unlock the mission, you have to participate in the ‘Wutai Spies’. This is where you have locate 6 wutai spies within Midgar. After each spy you locate, you unlock a mission. If you haven’t done that then you can’t get 100% in your Missions. Don’t worry though. Complete the game and then redo it with your stats. It’ll be easier. Once you complete the game, and start again you will have your materia, equipment and stats etc.

    @Skidoodle,
    I know what you mean. It was very tear breaking, I seriously wanted to cry!!
    And yeah, it doesn’t seem hard, I think its only Minerva whos effected by it. And I know…. its boring. I can’t be asked doing it all over again, just want bloody Minerva!!!! ARGH! lol

    its kinda boring, especially when you one hit all the bosses. right now im playing FF7 on my psp. lol. its been years since i played. im using the popsloader thing to play it.

    Don’t Farm Adamantites this takes entirely too long. you have to reenter the mission over and over. Just do the same thing you would do with them with the dark matter. You can farm them from the worms in 7-6-6 where the first magic pot can be spotted. I was here trying to get my genji crap. no the stupid birds are a pain but just dodge them and use Quake along with a energy suit and you should have to only use it 3 or 4 times on the birds. But when you are with the worms and the demons you can one or two shot them and with the mog amulet you can get a dark matter for each worm!! and continue in the same mission I got 99 without even thinking about it. I did the same procedure with the Adaman and then only traded on Adaman to change it to vit or Hero drink, or etc you get the picture. Be sure to have Gil Toss, Costly Punch, and you HP 99,999 in case that stupid pot is pops up and pray to god for a Sephrioth DMW >.> . . . .

  332. MrStick December 31, 2008 Reply

    In my opinion…. Do not even farm for those items. Its a waste of time whether its adamantite or dark matter.

    Use that time to get to Minerva, and you don’t have to worry about dark matter etc, as long as you have a good number of them like 20. I’ve seen this many times!!

    STOP WASTING TIME IN FARMING WITH DARK MATTER ETC!!!!!

    For more info, look at my previous posts :D
    (about the birds, you can use costly punch on them when they’re together so it hits both of them)

    Im trying to get 100% for Cloud and Tseng.

    My eqs are genji shield, adman bangle, brutal and power suit.

    Is this good?

    @isu

    take off your power suit. you’ll need spirit when it comes to mission 9-5-x. with those flare-energy-ultima enemies.

    try fusing as much as you can to get high stats.

    prioritize. if you want to have 100% first, do the easier missions again or what have you. if you want to have better accessories, try to reach missions 9-x-x first.

    anyway, reaching minerva and stealing 99 phoenix downs can give you a good fuse. and a good amount of gil to expend for buying dualcasts and converting them to sp. haha

    try to get the zeidrich accessory. it adds 100 to each stat except luck. it might be better. :P

    Easy Dark Matter, SP, Gil Farming Tip:
    (Dark Matter for +100 Stat, SP for fusion, Gil for uhh… money)
    Equip Mog’s Amulet
    Mission 6-6-3: Secret in the Caverns

    Lesser Worm drops Dark Matters and they spawn 2-3 worms per encounter and the mission boss are 6 worms.

    Mover EX gives 8,000 SP each kill and i recommend killing off other monsters before the Movers (but don’t get damaged) to multiply 8,000 SP by 2 or sometimes 3. Movers also drop Rune Armlet which sells for 4,000 Gil.

    Horned Devil drops Darkness which can be converted to 6,040 SP.

    Hi all, i think that with zieldich and genji helm, electrocute does more damage than costly punch. Costly punch does 99999 damage. But electrocute with zieldich does 45k per hit. The max you can hit an enemy with electrocute is 3 times per spell. So that makes 135k damage as apposed to 99k.

  360. steve April 30, 2009 Reply

    the only issue is that one almost always deals 99k and almost always hits with the loss of only a negligible amount of hp whereas electrocute may miss and uses mp… however with dualcast i suppose having a whole ton of lightning bolts dealing 45k each would be extremely useful…if only dualcast could have greater MP%

      increase your vitality using some items
      then go to mission 1-1-1.. let those shinra people harass you but make sure to block or dodge the solar plexus.. just wait for the reel to hit either cissnei (for increasing the probability of a DMW skill) and cloud (to get that final scene)

    does HP+999% makes your HP to 99999? because i have HP+999% but my health isnt 99999 but 40000+.. or does it have to depend on zack’s level too?

    Tip for very fast SP gain!!

    When farming Adamantite from the boss in 9-3-4 you can Mug 2 SP Barriers from the boss.. Use SP Convert to get 15010 SP each for a total of 30020 SP each fight.
