You know what i hate about these games? Rare item drops. I just spent three days farming for the bomb summon in FF 4! I was just about to give up and it finally dropped from those grenade enemies on the moon. What a pain in my ass!

Approaching the end of the Calm Lands in Final Fantasy X... I'm getting serious "late-game" vibes, and I'm loving and hating that. It's been such a journey with the seven amazing characters, and I love the ideology and themes of this game. If I have time I'll try and produce a longer post after I beat the game, detailing my thoughts on the world of Spira, including the overarching theme of death, sending, summoning, dreaming, and Zanarkand....

@Zeldafan79

Lol don't play FF12 then. That had some items that had like a 1/300 chance of dropping.

Yeah, it's just the final dungeon after the Calm Lands, @TheJGG.... Do let us know how that goes

@BruceCM

Nah-ah.

Optional dungeon Cave of the Stolen Fayth at the end of the Calm Lands, then Mt Gagazet after that, which is fairly lengthy and includes several major bosses.......then the final "dungeon", although not much of a dungeon really.

BruceCM

Well, I'm not sure if he wants to do the optional 1, @Dezzy.... I sort of combined the other 2, since the final bit is so small

So opinions on Final Fantasy V? As per my FF marathon I'm up to that one now. It seems decent enough. Kinda dull and a little generic after playing FF IV but I'll see how it goes.

@Dezzy @BruceCM I've read up on the various bosses to come, and I've spent a lot of time around the weapon shop save point in the middle of the Calm Lands... I've heard Seymour Flux is infuriatingly hard so I'm preparing

I may visit the optional dungeon in another playthrough, for now I won't touch Last Mission, Will, X-2, or Eternal Calm until I beat X.

Well, naturally, as the final boss, he's difficult, @TheJGG.... Seems you should be well prepared but let us know how it goes, anyway

@BruceCM Seymour Flux isn't the final Boss, you may be talking about Seymour Omnis... either way that's arguably the hardest boss, so I'm very sure the grind'll be worth it.

Well, yeah, Seymour variants, @TheJGG..... But you seem to be prepared for it all!

Fairly fun and cool class system, but very generic story compared to everything that came after it. My general opinion on these early games is that if you've played FF4, you can pretty skip the others (earlier than 6), because they're all basically the same concept and very similar settings just recycled over and over, but 4 does it way better than the others.

Ardyn is probably my favorite part of XV, and I’m glad they at least finished his episode before quitting the game itself.

BruceCM

Well, that's my least favourite of the FFs I have finished, @Zeldafan79.... But VI is great, so I'm sure you'll like that next

Currently playing through FF VI - A blind playthrough ofc since I only started getting interested in FF last year - only finished FF XIII so far but I really liked it.
Any tips for VI or the future? I also started FF I on my GBA recently - do I get any other party members or do I stick with the 4 I chose?

To skip out on FFV is to skip out on Gilgamesh. And to skip out on Gilgamesh? That's a tragedy.

In all seriousness, V is my favorite. The plot is "Four Warriors of Light" again (just like 1 and 3 before it), but the GBA localization helps add some flavour to it. And as mentioned, the job system is fun.

Just as you say I have it under control I bottle it, @BruceCM! The Defender X boss namely. I had it under control until I made the mistake of using Kimahri’s self destruct Overdrive attack, leaving me one party member short. Left my party completely vulnerable and it wasn’t a fair fight anymore.

I was very close to defeating it though, it had about 13,000 hit points before it took my whole party out. Used Mental Break and... the physical version of that, from Auron, which helped me a ton. At one point I managed to deal 9000 damage with Auron, so it was not a struggle at first. Can’t wait to have another go!

I don't really like Kimhari much, so I'm not very familiar with his overdrives, @TheJGG.... I'd not have him in my party for much of the game, so I can't advise on that

Ardyn was a cool character but his position as the main villain of FF XV felt really forced.

@Snaplocket I never thought that. He's probably one of the better villains in a JRPG, especially when you get to know his full story, and that he's a victim of circumstances that are beyond anyone's control. He also has a pretty great Voice actor, which fit perfectly.
