    Hey guys, I've been playing FFX pretty intense the past two weeks. Anyway, I have a question. I'm trying to capture all the monsters in Mt. Gagazet, and the only one I have left is Grendel. FAQs say the monster can be found in Gagazet Cavern, but...you know how it is, one person makes a mistake, everyone else copies.

    Anyway...can someone give me some assurance that Grendel can indeed be found in Gagazet Cavern, or do I have to look outside of the Cavern on the mountain? I notice an FAQ stated Grendel can also be found in Zanarkan Ruins; is it easier to find it there (I can't remember ever seeing a Grendel)?

    Or is there some special way to ensure meeting this damn elusive monster? It's beginning to piss me off, considering how I've been wandering around in that damn cavern for three hours without once seeing a bloody Grendel...

    Ha, try finding all the sigils, crests, and misc. items like Doors to Tomorrow and the Celestial Mirror without an FAQ...bloody impossible.

    What's the challenge in finding them if you read where they are?
    Well,.. I guess there's always the challenge in finding the FAQ without errors.. =}

    Nah, I agree, RPG FAQ's are lame. Nothing personal Ice.

    OMG, I'm an idiot. Grendel's actually a fairly common enemy. I think in my first run through I accidentally killed instead of capturing the damned thing, and so ignored it everytime I saw it after...not realizing it was the same thing I was looking for. Ack. Oh well, at least my characters are much more leveled up.

    Mirkan: I only used the FAQ for secrets, not as a walk through. My friend got everything in FFX, and it took him 95+ hours with the occasional use of a FAQ to find/get certain things. No way am I going to invest that much time.

    Same here. Running around and fighting random battle after random battle while looking for something that may not even be there isn't my idea of fun.

    Well then I understand.

    As Yamcha pointed out before me, looking for things you don't know even exists isn't fun. And if you're being assaulted by plants, furrballs and whatnot, it's even less fun.

    Hope I didn't offend you in any way. /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    LOL, no offense taken.

    One question...does anyone know of a good way to get Level 3 and 4 Key Spheres?! Ultima is out of my reach right now, and my Yuna is stuck. The Omega Ruins are pretty tough, but that's where I am right now looking for those robots. So far I've only met him once, and that's after nearly 2 hours of play...sigh.

    Try getting everything in DW7 or Persona 2 without a FAQ it's very very hard but I dont care. I play to be challenged. Having someone hold my hand through the process is not my idea of fun:)

    Final Fantasy consists of:
    personal conflicts [who am i? Am i a clone?(FF8) That's my Brother! (FF2)
    Heart breakin moments (Sephiroth killed Flower gal and Holy was silently cast, FF7)
    Your personal Choco (FF7)
    Etc...etc

    <font color=orange>Gosh... I haven't played FFX before but with you guys going around capturing monsters ?! I wonder Is this one of the Pokemon series ?</font color=orange>

    Tis thing abt catchin creatures came in FF9(i think): Stealing 'Jewels and defeating' all land spirits, n they'll tell u where the next land spirit is... and u can fight Ozma (sounds like Os@m@) with much ease...

    Regarding Pokemon, ya u r dead right abt this point! But in Final Fantasy, its a side quest for capturing creatures.

    <font color=red>[Chocobo]</font color=red>
    Final Fantasy has always relate cute pets like Chocos.

    FF2 is always a classic. Defeating siblings, movin towards lunar (moon) and stop Zemus(Zeromus) from inflictin further damage to mother earth.
    .
    .
    .
    FF7: Breading green, blue, black, Golden chocos. Golden Choco that can Fly, scale mountains, swim... Juz name it! Knights of the Round? Ultima weapon? Sephiroth?
    FF8: Drawing of spells and junction to abilities and status?
    FF9: Super cartoon!!! I luv the Choco quests... Pay gils and dig for potions and Chocographs? Pepper will rocket your choco up to Choco's Paradise where you'll find Ozma

    Agghhhh.... Enough of FF... But i will still play it if i bought PS for VF4 though... Life's ironic/versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    You forgot that Final Fantasy almost always consists of:
    1) Must Save the world
    2) Too late! World is screwed.
    3) Must save what is left of the world!
    4) and the all powerful, SOME GOOD GUY MUST DIE!

    Yes of course! Save your world on maps or save points... Still remembers the crystal logo of FF...
    Its never too late to save the screwed up world... Just take 3 weeks of playing hrs/versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    And the most fuckup part abt FF is that you always miss the little things without faq. But i dun use faq until i complete 1 time and replay it with faq.

    Character development is not a key part of the game compared to Diablo.

    I luv to develop thus i play Sim city /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif building schools, casinos etc...

    /versus/images/icons/smile.gifAnyway, FF is for ppl who r free and ppl who r often play VF too!!!/versus/images/icons/smile.gif Ice-9?

    1. Of course must save the world. Becos you'r that good guy amongst the rotten ones.
    2. Its a screwed up world but u get all the dominating weapons and always a completable game.
    3. Whats left in the world is u. Must survive with the unlimited continues and reload of memory.
    4. Some good guys die but we must remember that we've killed/slayed so many bad guys. These include: minions, vegetation (catus)... Killing grass here in Singapore is a Very Serious offense. But in FF, its for survival.

    Did anyone of you know that in the next FF series, you will not only be able to catch monsters, you will also get to train them ! Not only that. When your monsters get hungry you need to feed them (with god knows what...). When they are bored you need to play with them...

    Square has decided remove the character development sphere. In it's place is a new concept call the FinalTamaDex. This will allow you to record everything about your monsters, including their cholesterol lvls, blood pressure, etc. You can even get to exchange your monsters with friends online.

    Now isn't this fun ?!

    PS. Ignore me.. i am just joking /versus/images/icons/wink.gif
