Final Fantasy: Worst Thread Ever

This is a Final Fantasy thread.

I just did a heavy workout and my spine is about ready to separate in two.

A less embarrassing opening will be made after I spend the next few hours in agony.

In the meantime check out the official homepage for Final Fantasy XIV if you haven't done so lately. It's looking real awesome, and I firmly believe it'll eclipse FFXIII for best RPG this year.

    Also Chocobo chick is the worst character in the game. I'm starting this thread off right.

    What does Quick Stagger on Lightning's Lionheart actually do? It sure sounds good.

    That sounds perfect for both ravager and commando.

    Should I even bother pouring any points into anything except Commando for Lightning? I'll pour a bit into Ravager...but I primarily just like watching her launch stuff and kill it. I end up saving all my excess points until her Commando tree opens up a bit.

    The chocobo chick and Sazh are kind of a metaphor for any relationship.

    You like her because she's cute but then she eventually moves in with you and never gets out of your hair.

    Bashing Sazh's Chocobo Chick in any fashion should be grounds for a jailing. EVERYONE would get one if they could. I don't care who. Even Kefka would sport one of those cuties. Does it eventually get a name? (Spoil tag it if you're about to answer that.)
