    Yeah, Firaja's gonna remain out of my reach. I went in witth RW Cecil's second SB, used Retaliate, Intimidated the last Spinscale and I still ran through all my resources and then died.

    The one where you have to leave a spinscale alive is far and away the hardest fight in the event. Took me a lot of tries till I got lucky enough, and still had to burn a mythril to fight the guy after it. Hoping to avoid mythril burns for a while...

    It sounds like you killed off all but one Sinscale. Don't! If you're using the Taunt+Retaliate strategy, you want to leave all the Sinscales alive until the boss is down -- more Sinscales means more attacks on your Retaliator, which means more damage on the boss.

    edit: also, it's the boss you want to Intimidate, not the Sinscales.

    Yeah, I'm stuck at 80 stam until these next two events finish up.

    Also I don't think I'll be able to farm up the Greater Earth Orbs I need for both Protectga and R2 Quake by tomorrow. Decisions will have to be made.

    Definitely Quake R2. No contest. Protectga is nice to have, but definitely doable without.

    Ye olde FF threade

    I have a question/request.

    Does anyone know of a spreadsheet or whatever (google doc or excel would be great, but anything already organized) that lists the various iterations of FF games and the platforms they were released on?

    There's this obviously https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Final_Fantasy_video_games and I started making my own; I just thought I should stop and check if this has already been done, before I put too much time into it.

    Basically I just want a checklist spreadsheet for my own OCD, to see what versions of various ports of various FF games I already own, and which I am missing.

    Finally got through the elite Gui and am nearly done with the boss rush (just Gui to go). Took a heal after Echuilles but barring shenanigans I should be done with Tidus' event.

    NA I think.

    I had been thinking just mainline FF's and any sequels/spinoffs, but I think I also want to get down unique branches like Chronicles and Tactics too. The Wikipedia list isn't as daunting as I had initially thought, but still; if a checklist has already been done by someone else sometime in the past, might as well not duplicate the effort.

    Not yet. Japan has about twice as many characters as the Global release, and it still doesn't have everyone yet.

    But what a great time it was.

    Leo will have all his abilities, but they all do the same thing: instantly wreck everything's face.

    Oh one more thing for new players: check the Quest list before you do anything! They are not retroactive if you do something without the quest accepted first. This is especially true for crafting abilities.

    Whoo, got master on Tidus boss rush, no mithril. Went half and half with @silence1186 guide and
    https://www.reddit.com/r/FFRecordKeeper/comments/3a59lf/operation_miihen_boss_room_no_mithril_f2p/

    Replaced Protectga with Haste and Armor break with Fira strike. I had to S/L on stage 4 a ton since I had the worst luck on ethers and Intimidates(only the first one hit on a tentacle and none on the main boss).
    Literally no retaliates or curagas were restored on all 4 stages. -_-
    Lenna and Rinoa died on the last boss, didn't really matter though since they were out of everything and I had most of the previous medals.

    Heads up:

    Nobody in this thread has Lightning yet. Her unlock hasn't been brought over to the US version yet.

    Tifa, Terra, and Celes were part of event dungeons that happened a while ago. You'll still be able to get them later, as the events do eventually cycle back.

    I don't know how Quistis is unlocked.

    Question for you FFRK people. I just started playing this week and have almost 100 mithril. I have no 5* gear besides that free sword. Should I do one of those 11 pull things, or wait for a different banner? I hear IX is good for mage items but I don't use mages much since I don't have materials to hone magic, mine is all level 1 or 2.

    Imo, all high level equipment will boost your play DRAMATICALLY, no matter what it is. Without it, Elites and Heroics are just straight up beyond you. So I'd say, spend 50 on the one banner up now and 50 on the other. Alternatively, spend 50 on the banner that sounds the best right now and then spend 50 on the next new banner that comes along.

    I actually did another 50 pull today and got a White Robe. Not amazing, but great for mages I think. I also got two more Crystal swords. That means I have a fake 6 * and another Crystal sword on backup for VI levels.

    I'd do an 11 on the IX banner, you have a good sword to do some retaliate meta and you'll want to try to get some mage weapons for the long run. The meta eventually goes to having a lot of mages since enemies will get a lot of defense.
