    I found out something today about Ozma:
    If you are weak, Ozmas weaker!!!
    I put off ALL abilities on every char and Ozma was piece of cake. I tried a few times and he almost never used his beter spells !!!
    If you want to set abilities anyway DONT SET AUTO-HASTE!!! It will make Ozma faster too! (remember my prevoius message)
    I think Ozma uses Curse less when your NOT protected against it!
    Its like he sees what your strategy is... Just try to beat him with only Auto-regen and Autolife and maybe HP+20%
    I tried with ONLY STEINER and I almost got him, but then he used Meteor anyways...

    Good luck to you all whos trying to find more challenge in Ozma. I'll make a movie of it when Im beating him with Steiner only.
    If anyone's interested in the (very low quality, sorry :s) movie of me beating Ozma without Abilities set, contact me

    Actually try equipping Pumice pieces on your party, i believe that they absorb holy/dark. There are at the most 5 pumice pieces, which means there is enough for your party. With these you can cast doomsday with Vivi and have your party healed and do damage to ozma.

    Ok so I have decided to go through the game again, and attempt to do everything minus the excalibur II chalenge, My question is what cards do you have to get before the end of each disk, and what is a good way to play cards if you wish to get them all?

    Well to be honest I never gave the card game much thought except for the tournment in Disc 3 , but one thing I know for sure is as for playing the card game you have too time the cards right, and use your highest level monster cards against tough opponents,and low level cards against monster cards like namingway.

    I can't give you any advice on how to play the card game better. Of all people, I've seen you post gamefaq links to other peoples help threads, so why are you even asking for help? The game is completely random so even a totally weak card can beat a strong one. Look for an FAQ to help you with how to play, but it is still random so watch out for a chance defeat sometime.

    If I remember correctly, the only card you need to get before the end of Disc 3 is the Namingway Card which can be found in Kuja's room prior to when he traps you and splits up the party. ((dun remember that part to much, it was so long ago, but I know the card is in a stack of books in his room))

    I knew that too, and I think you didnt have to say that because anyone having trouble with Ozma would check the Ozma helpguide on this forum and would know this already Actually I think there are only 3 pumice pieces... but there are also Pumices...

    Well in that group you are given Zidane, Vivi and Freya and if you choose, you can have Quina. One of your problems with the boss maybe that you do not have Quina. And while I am not sure if you need Quina to win, it will probably be harder fighting with only three as opposed to four party members.

    As for a strategy against the guardian of Burmecia, use Freya's jump a lot since it means she will not be in the line of attacks a lot. So if she is weaken and you cannot heal her, just have her jump, it will save her for a time. Though it will mean you need to heal her later. With Quina it is best to keep him/her on the healing duty, while Quina is not a horribly offensive character, you already have your medium and heavy damage dealers, let them do all the damage and Quina cover their butts. With Vivi do focus and then a magic attack, that way you are not completing throwing away your MP immediately. Because it can be really easy to eat through all of Vivi's MP before the battle is finished. And keep Zidane healed and fighting, he is your fastest member usually, and while not always the strongest, his damage will add up.

    Other things to watch for are water spells, if you have things that weaken water damage that will help out. Remember to alway look at your equipment, and it might not look like the best gear, but it may have a great secondary ability or trait on it that will save your life.
    Curious? There's no limits but your own imagination.

    If all that doesn't work, you probably have to level up. Another option is to get some of your characters trace bars high so they will be tranced during the fight. Quina doesn't really count though for the trance bar thing because all his does is strenghthens eat. That will make it a lot easier. If Vivi is running out of MP you should probably use focus. It will strenghthen his magic.

    You need a lot of effort and your characters need to be very strong like 65-70+, but according to RagnaToad you can just un-equip all you abilities basically and then Ozma will go easy on you. Maybe it will work I think I'm gonna go check it out.

    im stuck on the iifa tree on disc 2, the soulcage thing, and i only have 1 ether left, and the moogle in madain sari doesnt sell them. does anyone know a good strategy for defeating it without any ethers? i have enough potions.

  14. #44
    I have a quicky. Use a phoenix down on him and then attack, it kills him instantly.

    what level do u have to be on to do that?

  16. #46
    im on level 25 with zidane btw. i dont know if this was just bad luck but as soon as i started the battle the soulcagedid death no. 5 on me and it killed all but 1 of my people, eiko, and she died soon too. but really, does that usually happen or is it just my luck? becasue i only did it once and ive been busy doing other stuff since then.

    To beat soulcage the easiest way you can just cast life on him or use a phoenix down and hit him. These are instant deaths for him and the best part is it doesn't matter what level you are It avoids a lot of frustration.

    Oh and level 5 death automatically kills the characters in your party whose level is a multiple of 5.

  18. #48
    oohh haha that makes sense, about the level 5 death.
    thanks =)

    You have to hit him after you use it or it won't work.

    Level up some more if you can. Equip clearheaded if you have it. Use a tent on it at the beginning at the fight.(If it works, it will help a lot!) Have freya use jump a lot, if she has Reises Wind(or however you spell it, use it at the beginning. . Have Zidane takes turns through steal and attacking. Throw some stuff at him with Amarant and keep attacking, heal when needed. That's how I beat it!

    haha i did it only it was with zidane only and 3/4 of the times i was attacking he was using hi-potions. it took so long i went through 2 trances, but i won eventually! lol thankss

  25. #55
    where do u get the k-nai armlet for vivi so he learns water? i know he should have like learned it by now but im looking in my friends official guide thing and it said i needed that and i dont know where to get it

  26. #56
    If I remember correctly, you should get it when you make the demon and angel face right in the little room with the painting when you grab the bloodstone, that might not be right though, so look it up.
    It's been awhile, but I am back! Yay! Right?

  27. #57
    ohh thanks i just got there, lol. i thought like it was something i had missed in a shop before and i was never going to get one and that would suck.

  28. #58
    You can actually get one after that place. And you don't NEED it, it is just very helpful. Hint:The next boss is weak against water and I hope you got all the bloodstones otherwise he'll be stronger, you'll see what I mean soon.
    It's been awhile, but I am back! Yay! Right?

  29. #59
    do you mean that valia pira thing? yeah it was getting all messed up because it sensed that i had the blood stones so it was like really easy.

  30. #60
    Yep yep. Hehe, that's how you do it! Now, you get to go back to Kuja's place, hooray!
    It's been awhile, but I am back! Yay! Right?
