      you can leave the area, it doesnt reset the tonberry kill count, only the remaining timer. Hell this is how people get king without getting odin

    Definitely didnt take your time to break it down enough. Last time I played this game I was 9 and I just fought hard and potion spammed until I almost beat the game (the no-magic-allowed castle) and would love a slower in-depth explanation.

              Okay I’ve never played this game before. What brought me here is this card game which is playable within this game and there’s some things you’ve got to do if you want to gain access to something? A limit or special item I’m not to sure. I’m not to great at card games and I did become confused watching this video. I’m feeling drawn to wanting to buy ffviii but I’m feeling a bit put off because of this card game... I have a feeling there’s something you’ll need to do.

              • Jonathan Symes
                Jonathan Symes  2 weeks back

                Primalliquid I have another question to ask I hope it’s okay. All those abilities he has for instance T mag-rf so on how do you learn them? As I’ve never played this before and I don’t really want to miss anything important

              • Jonathan Symes
                Jonathan Symes  2 weeks back

                Primalliquid do you don’t need to do it for any special items for limit breaks? Not even for that attack rinoa has I think it’s called end game?

              • Primalliquid
                Primalliquid   2 weeks back

                So the cards are just a way to become super super overpowered really early on, however its a minigame that is absolutely NOT required for the game at all.

              heres my tip and still using it till this day!
              *Try NOT to level up UNTILL u get the "+1 bonus" things from gf's*
              abit annoying because you need to card every encounter or run from every battle untill then.

                @Hatsune Elissu and after we feel much stronger than normal boss, we will quit soon.
                That is the reason i never go till disc 4 after many tries. Lol

              • Primalliquid
                Primalliquid   2 weeks back

                No, you can do it with rinoa search (no chocobo world on the remaster, all items were moved to rinoa's search) but thats not until disc 3 anyway

              LOL, I imported a PS1 mini player when I was a kid to play the ff8 chocobo game. It didnt work even though the game says it supports it.

              In the end I used a gameshark to get the minigame only items =P .

                I actually ordered a PocketStation from Japan when it came out. It was a clear shell one. I had it for two weeks when my dog decided to rip The PocketStation out of the Playstation and destroyed the hinged part. Oh well.

                        Theres someone named jack maldeir who reposted your video on his channel with no edits from your original here. I just thought you should know. The only thing that's different from yours is the pic you see before starting the video. It even starts with you saying its primal liquid. Idk if you gave them permission just seemed off and I dont like content stealers.

                                        @T Doran yeah that's why you grind magic to junction instead, or card the enemies so you gain AP but no XP. Your GF gains new abilities and power ups while the enemies remain the same.

                                        @T Doran you do get raw stat increases from GF abilities and magic junctions... This only goes but so far....

                                        Leveling makes up the difference... And the trick is to find a good point where you aren't too high level, but also get the biggest stat boost possible.

                                        But this is tricky depending on what you have and where you're at in the game. But it is possible to get a Squall that can solo everything as early as the ifrit kill with enough grinding and use of the game's broken systems

                                        DarkFrozenDepths but you literally said enemies level up alongside you so there’s no point in grinding.

                                        Best tip I have is that you DON'T want to level up early. You want to stay as low a level as possible until the end of disck three.

                                          Or get the Rosetta stone from prison at start of disc 2, and teach 4x ability to one of your GF.
                                          You should have 4 bonus abilitys allready (Hp-Brothers, Str-Ifrit, Vit-Carbuncle and Mag-Siren) and should get the 5th after returning to Balamb Garden (Spr-Leviathan). Then you can start level up your characters...

                                                @Lewis Britchford just looked it up it's quezlcotl, the ability called t-mag rf (you may need to learn card and card mod first to unlock it)

                                                @Lewis Britchford I'm about 90% certain its quezl once you learn the card command and card refine abilities

                                                Abyss worm = windmill = 20 tornadoes (with the wind card refine ability)

                                                If you're REALLY dedicated though 100 flares are a tiny bit better then tornado and gives you the option of having a wind element for the elvoret boss meaning you pretty much obe shot it when you're done drawing magic from it

                                                Ruby dragon x 10 = inferno fang = 20 flare

                                              what i would do is , take . this . game anD create . a . real . AAA out . of it. u . don't imagine the success...the school thing will make any teenager and even grown ups like IT. you could clear the campaign wich would be this exact story from FF8 with the same . characters and story progression...but more developed maybe with more influence from ff9 stuff as well...those 2 worlds plus maybe more final fantasy stuff you create not a multi player online but a co-op game where you could control the 3 chars or with co-op not make it required to be on a team with people that doesn't . work very well . could have an end game where u use ur char to battle even stronger monsters to get new weapons maybe and abilities and then even could be a PVP game battling with guardian forces and that...but must be turn based the combat where u plan ur attack not press buttons and smash opponent...u build ur char like originally by getting gear training guardian forces and then junction and farming magic to improve ur abilities...must be turn based imo :D

                                                I wonder if this is going to effect the value/cost of original and working copies for the PS1 game.

                                                  Having the no encounter buttons undermine the whole point of getting it through the junction system..

                                                        when it comes out on PS4 this will very likely work, it will more than likely just be an option on the main menu like where you select "New Game" and "load Game" ect

                                                            you can get it earlier than that, you can get pulse ammo from cards at the very start of the game by converting energy crystals into ammo and you can get adamantine from the adamantoise monsters outside dollet area before heading to deling city.

                                                            Dragon fangs can actually be gotten easier if you dont intend to mug elastoids in lagunas dream sequence.

                                                            The grendels drops them frequently along the west edge of the forest that youd encounter the same laguna dream sequence but only if your party average level is under 20 i believe?

                                                            That makes farming the adamantine a tad harder though because it only drops I believe above average level 30 from adamantoises.

                                                            But using that method you dont ruin your stat potential by being near max before you have GFs with the stat plus abilities. Since T-Rexaurs dont drop them before like level 60 or so.

                                                            The elastoid farm method however requires a party average level of i believe 70.

                                                            So you can have lionheart before deling city and under level 45
