    You're asking a lot, understanding that takes time. Try using the tutorials. Buttttttt, I'll give it a go anyways.

    Everything in this game revolves around your gf's. They are the basis of the junctioning system. They allow you to learn new ability's and use magic. When you get a new gf you choose what ability's to teach it. Some ability's make your magic stronger, others your hp. There's a lot more to it than that, but those are the basics.

    Junctioning is the method of using magic you've drawn from enimies to customize and strengthen your characters. You equip (junction) magic you've drawn from enimies to different stats like hp, strength, vitality, magic, speed, luck and a few others. You can junction a maximum of 100 magic to each stat. Depending on the strength of the magic, you can easily double the damage you do with magic or double your HP. You can only use one type of magic on each stat. Some magic works better on some stats than others. Ultima is probably the strongest magic in the game, but Full-life will raise your HP more when junctioned than ultima.

    For your first play through the game you have the option to auto junction, this allows you to junction magic to make your magic high, your hp high or you strength high. This probably the best method for you at the beggining. Later on you can fool around with different settings. I won't go into trying to explain status junctioning or elemental junctions as you can easily get through the game for the first time without understanding those.

    Hopefully this helps a little, if not ask questions and you'll get answers.

    She's weak against Wind so just keep casting Aero and heal Rinoa.
    She uses Ultima right? If I remember correctly you cant absorb Ultima so thats a bummer.
    DONT CAST HOLY on her, shell get pissed off.

    Wtf? We wants it, we must haves it. You're playing this game with other people eh?

    Anyways, you're question is kind of odd but I'll do my best. You're asking can you beat the monsters in Ultimecia's castle and leave the castle before fighting Ultimecia? If so,the answer is yes. The only real reason to get eden in the castle would be if you missed it before, or you chose not to get it because you wanted to keep all the fixed encounters in the deep sea facility. Otherwise go get it from Ulitma, better fight.

    Hey I never tried this before but does Carbuncle's reflect work on Ultimecia.

  12. #42
    Carbuncles effect works on your characters, adding Reflect to everyone. It has no effect on Ultimecia.

    If you mean her magic spells, than the answer is it will reflect all spells that can be reflected. Special spells of hers such as Apocalypse probably cannot be reflected, as it's like Ultima, unblockable.

    Basically any inherant attacks she has, cannot be reflected.

    Yes it does... briefly. Ultimecia will waste no time in knocking it off with dispel.

    I think the best way to get Curse Spikes is to mug Tri-Faces. I think you get a few curse spikes per enemy. I am not sure if that's right or not. If you have Diablos, equip Mug to Squall and use it during battle. You can find them before you encounter Edea at Galbadia Garden. I hate fighting them, they annoy me! I think you can also find them on the Island Closest to Hell and the Deep Research Centre. I hope that helps. Good luck. You could also modify Tri-Face cards but you only get one per card. It would be better off trying to Mug them.

    It depends what Squall's level is. What is it?

    Yeah, it all depends on what level Squall is on. I know it's pretty high because it normally takes me ages to defeat him. That's usually when I'm on a high level though.

    I found on a site that says his HP ranges from: 30968-159000
    That's a fair amount isn't it? The battle seems to go on for ages!

    You can get Zell's card from Ma Dincht at Balamb. You can visit her at the beginning of disc one or later on in disc two. You can only play her when you have Zell in your party. She has never played the card for me though lol.

    What do you mean exactly? Are you talking about Squall's card? If so, you can win his card from Laguna in Esthar or on the Ragnarok. That is after he is aboard of course, just go up to him and ask to play cards with him. I don't think he is too difficult to play cards with.
