FINAL FANTASY IV | Walkthrough & Achievement Guide

Introduction

Welcome to our amazing Final Fantasy IV guide!

Only first/easiest appearance of Monsters will be listed in the guide; repeats might be mentioned but only for rare encounters.

The following achievements are missable:

Legendary Treasure Hunter: due to all chests in Tower of Zet, Tower of Babel and the Giant of Babel.

Field Research- Professional: due to most bestiary entries in Tower of Zet, Tower of Babel and the Giant of Babel (plus some extra entries related to bosses: General, Captain, Calcobrena  , Barnabas-Z ).

Summon Master: due to the Sylph summon

And the following locations are time-limited or one-visit only:

Tower of Zot

Tower of Babel

The Giant of Babel

... but all that is covered in the walkthrough!

Information:

Hold Backspace to run.

Press Q to auto-play during battles.

Press Q to open the map and TAB to switch between locations. Chest progress can be also checked here.

Bestiary progress can be only checked from main menu: Extras → Bestiary.

There's two type of collectibles in this game:

Chests (342 in total): referenced with []

Hidden Items (54 in total): referenced with {}

There's one achievement for reaching level 70 with all your party members, but this only contemplates end-game characters so it's not really missable. It should also come through natural progression while completing everything else.

The achievement for visiting all locations is NOT missable.

Feel free to comment any typos/mistakes and we'll fix them ASAP.

Don't forget to follow us if you want more like these! It takes a lot of time and effort to write such extensive guides!

WARNING: There's two ways to end this battle. One is by killing all three Baron Soldiers to make the General escape, and the other is by killing the General first and earning way more EXP. I'm not sure if General is a missable entry in this version as if he escapes, he will still show up in the bestiary but with 0 kills, same way as in the FFIV 3D Remake, but in that version bestiary entries didn't count unless you had at least one kill. So our recommendation is taking the: General → Baron Soldier route to prevent later headaches.

After the battle, Summoner Rydia joins the party!

Yellow Jelly is pretty much immune to physical damage.

From the entrance, turn immediately left and go across the west bridge to find two chests. Open the left one for Spider's Silk and the one under the bridge for a Potion. [44/342]

From the chests, go all the way south and then east to find two more chests. Open both for a Tent and a Potion. [46/342]

The Antlion is even easier than the previous bosses. It deals 1 point of damage with each physical attack but counter-attacks all incoming damage. However, the counter-attack damage it's still insignificant for this point of the game, so it's nothing to worry about either.

Summon Chocobo with Rydia while attacking with the other two characters and the battle should be over within a few turns.

After winning, you will be rewarded with the key item 'Sand Ruby' to progress through the story.

Now you can either leave the dungeon by walking or use the Emergency Exit item we found earlier. It's up to you.

Kaipo Revisited And Mt. Hobs

Board the hovercraft and then make your way back to Kaipo: north from Antlion Cave, then west through the shallow rocks to return to the Damcyan area. From here, go southeast and then south through another set of rocks to finally reach the Kaipo area.

Enter the town.

Kaipo, Oasis of the Desert

Enter the northeastern house and head all the way north to visit Rosa.

Interact with her and use: Sand Ruby.

A cutscene will play.

White mage Rosa joins the party!

Another cutscene will play shortly after, then you will forced into a battle against a Sahagin with more life than its regular version.

       Sahagin     IDHPATKDEFM.DEFM.POWWEAK.RESIST.ABSORBSGILEXP--????????????????????????100800

The battle will only conclude once Anna finishes talking to Edward.

The next morning, equip Rosa however you like and then leave the town.

Overworld

Make your way back to the Antlion Cave but instead of going inside, continue east towards a big chunk of mountains.

Mt. Hobs, West Entrance

Follow the linear path to find four chests at its very end. Open all for Tent, Potion, Gold Needle, and 960 Gil. [59/342]

There's also a save point at this area. Feel free to rest/save if needed.

Mt. Hobs - Summit

Heal up and quick-save, then continue north to trigger a cutscene and a forced battle.

After the show, get ready for a boss fight!

       Mom Bomb     IDHPATKDEFM.DEFM.POWWEAK.RESIST.ABSORBSGILEXP1601100030195NoneInstant Death, Silence, Sleep, Paralyze, Darkness, Poison, Petrify, Confuse, Mini, Toad, Pig, Gradual Petrification, Curse, Float, Berserk, StopNone12001900

Mom Bomb is basically a regular Bomb with lots of extra health. It doesn't do anything special or deal impressive amounts of damage, so summoning Chocobo with Rydia while attacking with the rest of the party should be more than enough to take it down. The boss will increase its size about halfway the battle and then explode within the next few turns. Feel free to heal up and defend during that phase if you desire, but It's still not a big deal if you don't.

Soon after the boss explodes, you will find yourself battling against 3 regular Bombs and 3 Gray Bombs. These shouldn't suppose any challenge at this point of the game. Just spam any multi-target attacks and they'll gone rather quickly.

After the battle, the monk will introduce himself and shortly after... he will join the party!

Once you regain control, go through the north door.

Mt. Hobs, East Entrance

Follow the linear path all the way to the bottom to exit the dungeon.

Head northeast to find a path blocked by a column of fire. Luckily, Palom will take care of it.

Another cutscene will play just after.

Once you regain control, head northwest past the stairs and open the chest for a Potion. [68/342]

Now go upstairs and open the chest just above the previous one for yet another Potion. [69/342]

Continue upstairs and go through the door.

Mt. Ordeals - Ridge

Follow the linear path north to re-encounter an old friend just before entering the door.

Sage Tellah joins the party!

Go through the door.

Mt. Ordeals - Pass

Head all the way west, then up the stairs to find a chest. Open it for an Ether. [70/342]

Return to the entrance and now head north up two set of stairs, then west, then open the chest below the door for an Ether. [71/342]

That's all the collectibles for this location. 4/4 chests.

Go through the door.

Mt. Ordeals - Summit

Head north to a split. Here you can either go east for a save point and north to continue with the game.

Once ready to continue, approach the bridge to meet the next boss.

Since Skullnants are undead type, cast Fira with Palom, Cura with Tellah and Porom, and spam Hi-Potions with Cecil to take these enemies down quickly. Cast fire-based spells and use regular attacks against the boss.

After the battle, heal up and quick-save, then cross the bridge to trigger yet boss fight.

Scarmiglione is now undead type. If you have any Hi-Potions left, use them on the boss for 500 points of damage a piece. Spam Cura with the respective white mages and Fira with the black mage. The battle itself should be much easier than the one we had before.

Finally, Scarmiglione    is gone for good.

Now interact with the glowing tablet between the graves to get teleported to the next location.

Hall of Mirrors

Cecil becomes a paladin during the cutscene!

Shorty after, an unique boss fight will happen.

       Dark Knight     IDHPATKDEFM.DEFM.POWWEAK.RESIST.ABSORBSGILEXP---????????????????????????------

This battle is a little different from the others. Here you don't have to defeat the boss in the normal way; just defend until the fight is over (press right → Defend).

The Light's Chosen Climbed Mt. Ordeals and became a paladin.

Btw, Cecil is now level 1 and you will have to level him up from scratch. Equip him up and make your way out the dungeon; that should be enough to earn some levels.

Overworld

Backtrack to Mysidia: all the way west from Mt. Ordeals.

Mysidia

Head all the way north and enter the Elder's house.

Speak to the Elder to trigger a cutscene.

The eastern building is now open. Head inside.

Mysidia - Devil's Road

Step on the warp pad to get teleported back to Baron.

Baron Guards are simple enough; just make sure to don't waste too much MP on them as you'll need it for the next fight.

Now Monk can be kinda annoying. Cast high-level spells to take big chunks of his health and heal your party up when needed. High-level spells should deal over 1500 damage per use!

After the fights, a short cutscene will play and then Monk Yang will rejoin the party!

You will also be rewarded with the key item 'Baron key'.

Once you regain control, exit the Inn and open the Weapons & Armor shop: Interact with the door and use 'Baron Key'.

Once inside the shop, head to the bottom right corner and push downwards to reveal a secret passage.

Go through it to reach two chests, one in each shop. Open the left one for Zeus's Wrath and the right one for 2000 Gil. [73/342]

Now exit the shop and open the western building in the same manner as you did with this one: Interact with the door and use 'Baron Key'.

Head inside.

Stand one tile below the stairs and go all the way east to reach the last chest for this location. Open it for 1000 Gil. [74/342]

That should conclude the loot for this place. Finally. 6/6 chests and 8/8 items.

Now take the stairs leading down.

Now go north and follow the linear path through the bridges. Take the stairs leading up.

Old Waterway - B3

Take the stairs to the water and then head south through the secret passage.

Open the chest for Hourglass. [78/342]

Continue south through another secret passage to reach yet another chest. Open it for Spider's Silk. [79/342]

Next secret passage is kinda tricky to find. From the previous chest, go one tile down to stand just at the bottom of the stairs, then immediately push rightwards (see the screenshot for the exact location).

Follow the path until reaching the eastern part of the room.

Once here, go north past the first waterfall and go left towards some rocks for a secret passage.

Open the chest here for Hermes Shoes. [80/342]

Backtrack to the eastern part of the room with the waterfalls and head north to the next room.

Old Waterway - B2

Head north and up a long staircase, but don't go through the door yet. Instead, go left through a secret passage to reach a chest. Open it for an Ether. [81/342]

Backtrack the passage and head through the door.

Old Waterway - B1

Enter the room on the left side.

Here is a save point and more importantly, a hidden chest on the right side. Go through the passage and open the chest for Ancient Sword. [82/342]

That's all 8/8 chests for this dungeon.

Once ready, exit the room and head up the stairs.

Castle Baron

Familiar place, huh?

Anyway, go west, all the way south, and up the small staircase to reach the courtyard.

Feel free to visit Cecil's room (top of west tower) if you need to refill your HP/MP.

Now enter the eastern building and make your way to inside the castle.

Soon after entering the main hall, you will met Baigan which will join the party! but no, he won't...

Baigan will cast Reflect on himself as soon as he receives any magical spell, something that makes most other spells useless unless you cast Reflect on any party member with Tellah and then rebound all spells on them. However, Quake goes through the Reflect status and deals insane amounts of damage! so spam Quake with Paloom and enjoy defeating the boss within 3 turns!

After the fight, pay another visit to Cecil's Room and rest to heal up, then return to where the fight took place.

Head east through the staircase leading to the roof and continue right.

This place used the be guarded near the beginning of the game. It's not guarded anymore.

Interact with the marked button to open a secret passage.

Go through the passage to reach six whooping chests!

Epic boss battle music, hurrah!

It sadly won't last long... Spam thunder-based spells (Thundaga with Tellah and Thundara with Paloom) and the boss will be out of combat really fast.

After the battle and on the way out of the castle, a tragic scene will happen... followed by another not so sad scenes.

Overcoming Grief Defeated Cagnazzo, the Lord of Water.

Also Cid joins the party!

The boss is absurdly weak now. It still has lots of HP, but shouldn't be much of an issue if you get everyone to attack while Tellah casts high-level spells. Heal up when needed.

Once the boss losses most of its HP, it will morph into a Dark Dragon which is basically a weaker version of itself.

Have Kain jump at all times while the rest of the party is attacking. Heal up with Rosa whenever required and cast Esuna when any of your characters gets gradually petrified.

After the battle, Rosa will teleport you out of the dungeon, locking the dungeon forever. Good thing you didn't miss any collectibles/bestiary entries, right?

Dwarven Castle

Heal up and quick-save, then go all the way north to enter the Throne Room.

Cid leaves the party during the cutscene, then shortly after, you will be forced into a battle.

While the music hints to a boss battle, Calcobrena has so low HP that the fight will be over before you even notice, so I personally don't consider it to be one. The strategy is to keep jumping with Kain while everyone else attack. Heal up if needed!

Immediately after the previous fight, Golbez shows up and forces you into another boss fight.

As the battle starts, you will notice that all your attacks are missing its objective, so feel free to repeatedly skip turns to trigger the next set of events.

After a while, Golbez casts Ice Bind to paralyze your party followed by summoning Shadow Dragon to kill all but Cecil.

Thankfully, an old familiar face makes an appearance to save you from your imminent demise.

Now the real fight begins!

Spam Bio with Rydia while Cecil attacks... and the boss will be down within 2-3 turns.

Another scene will takes place where Summor Rydia joins the party!

Sadly, Golbez manages to steal the crystal and escape, but you're still alive and that's all what matters, right?

As usual with new locations, our next objective will be to loot the **** out of the castle, so head back to the main hall.

Feel free to go in between the counters to visit the Lali-ho Pub.

Trivia: Lali-Ho pub used to have a secret passage leading to the developers room in other versions of the game (such as SNES and 3D releases). Sadly, this was removed in Pixel Remaster and all you can find there now is a note saying '1991, Dev Team Office (Abandoned)'.

The passage can be accessed by pushing rightwards at the southeastern area if you feel like taking a look.

Once ready, take the northwestern staircase to continue with the adventure.

Since I'm not actually sure if this version is like the 3D one, I highly recommend defeating the doctor ASAP to grab his bestiary entry with at least one kill, the reload a save and defeat Barnabas first without killing the Doctor to trigger his second phase.

Note: make sure to close the game after the battle for the entries to get registered on the bestiary. If you quit during the battle, the entries won't be registered.

As for the battle, use Bio for massive damage, jump with Kain, and attack with Cecil and Yang.

If you did as recommended and you're on the second attempt now, the following boss should spawn after defeating Barnabas:

This boss is kinda annoying with all that sleeping gas and status ailments he applies, but the same strategy from the previous battle should still work fine here. Attack with Cain and Yang, jump with Kain, and cast Bio with Rydia. Rosa is your medic, so heal your party with her whenever required.

Btw, nice binary EXP.

After the battle, make your way back to 5F.

Tower of Babel - Underworld 8F

Once back at 5F, head up the middle stairs and use 'Dr. Lugae's Key' on the door.

Go through it.

Approach the wizards for an easy battle against three Goblin Captains.

After the battle, watch the scenes....

Your new objective is to exit the dungeon, so make your way out by walking. You can't use Emergency Exit for this occasion, sadly.

A scene will take place on 1F, just before the exit...

The airship can now carry and drop the hovercraft anywhere you want (not true, just land)!

So, first things first. Go pick up the aircraft which should be by Mt. Hobs entrance (blue dot on map) and bring it to the Eblan area (southwestern continent).

Drop the hovercraft anywhere this place, then land.

Get on the hovercraft and drive over the shallow rocks west to reach the Cave of Eblan.

Follow the passage to find a chest containing a Hi-Potion. [196/342]

Make your way back to the fallen soldier and head upstairs.

Head northeast and up the small staircase, then open the reachable chest for a Bomb Core. [197/342]

Go south past the three stones and push rightwards to reveal a secret passage.

Go through the passage and open the chest for a Shuriken. [198/342]

Return to the main path and continue south through the stairs.

You're back at the previous screen but on a different area.

Walk one step down so you're one tile diagonally above the top rock, then go east to reveal a secret passage.

Follow the passage and open both chests at the isolated area for two Elixirs. [200/342]

Backtrack to the entrance and open all three chests here for Hi-Potion, Cottage, and Hi-Potion. [203/342]

Continue south and then west to find a lone chest. Open it for Spider's Silk. [204/342]

Now go east to find three chests packed together. Open all for Silver Hourglass, Phoenix Down, and Phoenix Down. [207/342]

Follow the path all the way north, then head up the stairs.

Enter the room at the right.

Here's a save point and a chest. Go northeast and push rightwards to reveal a secret passage, then follow it to find the chest. Open it for a monsters-in-a-box battle against two Steel Golem (should be extremely easy by this point of the game).

You will be rewarded with Blood Sword! [208/342]

Exit the room.

Back at the main room, head west and up the stairs for a chest containing a Gold Needle. [209/342]

Now backtrack to the entrance and continue north through the east path to find two NPCs.

Approach them for a scene.

Ninja Edge joins the party!

After the scene, push leftwards against the west wall to reveal a secret passage to a previously inaccessible chest. Open it for a Dry Ether. [210/342]

And that is. 20/20 chests for this dungeon.

Go through the north stairs to reach our destination.

Lamia Matriarch and Mythril Golem show up on Underground 8F or later.

Green Dragon is extremely rare and usually shows up on Underground 7F.

We already visited this place in the Underworld, but we aren't in the Underworld now, are we?

Anyway, just as with the Underworld version of this dungeon, this is a ONE-VISIT dungeon and all bestiary entries and collectibles are missable.

Head north until a dead end to trigger a cutscene where Edge helps you getting inside.

Once inside, open the chest nearby for Unicorn Horn. [211/342]

Now head south and follow the linear path to a door. DON'T go in yet. Instead, head northeast and open the chest for Silver Hourglass. [212/342]

Go back south and through the door.

Tower of Babel - B2

Head northeast and follow the linear path until a split, then go south and open the chest for a monsters-in-a-box encounter against four Mad Ogres (which we already defeated in Eblan Castle).

You will be rewarded with Ogrekiller! [213/342]

Backtrack to the split and continue west to reach the door to the next floor. Go through it.

Tower of Babel - B3

Go south, then east past the door, then north and open the chest for Lilith's Kiss. [214/342]

Head back to the door we ignored before and go through it.

Tower of Babel - B4

Go east and follow the linear path to the next door. Open the chest on the way there for Ashura. [215/342]

Tower of Babel - B3

You're back at B3 but in a different place.

Head east and enter the first door you see for a save point, then enter the second to continue.

Tower of Babel - B4

Enter the obvious door to the left.

Tower of Babel - B5

Take the left bridge to the other side, then go all the way west and finally north. Open the chest here for 82000 Gil! [216/342]

Go back south and head for the middle platform.

       Queen of Eblan     IDHPATKDEFM.DEFM.POWWEAK.RESIST.ABSORBSGILEXP---????????????????????????------

Another unwinnable battle. Feel free to skip turns or defend until it ends by itself.

Rubicante shows up and then after a scene, you're free to walk around.

You don't have to heal your party members, as they will be automatically healed upon entering the next battle.

Interact with Rubicante when you're ready.

       Rubicante     IDHPATKDEFM.DEFM.POWWEAK.RESIST.ABSORBSGILEXP181340008033716NoneInstant Death, Silence, Sleep, Paralyze, Darkness, Poison, Petrify, Confuse, Mini, Toad, Pig, Gradual Petrification, Curse, Float, Berserk, StopNone700018000

Rubicante is weak to Ice-based spells when the cape is open, so spam the *** out of Shiva during that phase for some massive damage. Don't use elemental spells when the cape is closed or you will heal him.

He will also counter-attack all physical damage with Fira, so try to rely on magic and summons (such as Bio and Shiva like we mentioned earlier) and attack whenever you feel safe (though I don't recommend attacking as he will counter-attack every single time). By the way, be extremely careful with "Inferno" as it deals insane damage; have Rosa dedicated to healing and reviving.

TL:DR: spam Shiva with Rydia and don't use physical attacks at all. Rydia will carry you through this battle!

After the fight, a short scene will play and you will be rewarded with the following achievement:

Inflamed Anger Defeated Rubicante, the Lord of Fire.

Now head north through the door.

Crystal Room

Walk north to fall into an unavoidable trap...

Tower of Babel - Underworld 8F

Once you regain control, head north and open the chest for a Hi-Potion. [217/342]

Head south and go through the door.

Tower of Babel - Underworld 7F

Go all the way north and through the door.

Tower of Babel - Underworld 6F

Head south until the bottom, then go northeast to find the last chest for this dungeon. Open it for Hi-Potion.

That's the last chest for this location. Double check that you have 8/8 chests and all bestiary entries before progressing further.

Return south, then head all the way east and go through the door.

Watch the scenes.

New Airship And Tomra

Underworld

You just unlocked a brand new airship! However, it's pretty basic and won't let you go through lava yet.

Make your way back to Dwarven Castle.

Dwarven Castle

Enter the castle and head all the way north to the Throne Room.

Dwarven Castle - Throne Room

Approach the king Giott for a cutscene.

You'll receive the key item: Luca's necklace.

Exit the throne room and head to the hospital: south to 1F, western stairs to Inn, northeastern stairs to B1, nearby door to hospital.

Approach the bed to find an old friend!

Oh no... just kidding, he is fine!

The airship is now be equipped to fly over lava. Hurrah!

Leave the castle.

Underworld

Board the airship and head to the southwestern portion of land.

Disembark here and enter the town.

There's some decent equipment here, so it might be a good time for an upgrade if you have the funds. Here's what I bought:

1x Ashura (to complete the set with Edge)

2x Diamond Shield (for Cecil and Kain)

2x Diamond Helm (for Cecil and Kain)

2x Diamond Armor (for Cecil and Kain)

1x Diamond Gloves (for Cecil; had Giant's Gloves on Kain)

1x Gold Hairpin (for Rydia; already had one with Rosa)

This is kinda expensive and might not be worth it, so only do it if you have money to waste.

Once done with your purchases, pay a visit to the northwestern house.

All collectibles for this location are in this house; four unopened chests + bottom left pot + pot in screenshot.

Bottom left pot: Antarctic Wind. {48/54}

Middle left chest: Bomb Fragment. [219/342]

Bottom left chest: Zeus's Wrath. [220/342]

Pot in screenshot: Bestiary {49/54}

Middle right chest: Dry Ether. [221/342]

Bottom right chest: 2000 Gil. [222/342]

That makes 4/4 chests and 2/2 items.

Leave the town.

Underworld

Board the airship and head northwest over the lava to find a cave in a small island (refer to the screenshot below for the exact location).

Land and head inside.

Cave Of Summons

Cave of Summons - B1

Mini Satanas will counter-attack all damage with Confuse.

Summoner can invoke most other creatures from this dungeon.

Thunder Dragon is highly resistant to magic damage.

KIng Naga can be spawned by Summoner but It's more common in a later dungeon.

Most of the floor here is lava. Really. So start by casting Float on all your party members (Magic → Rosa → White Magic → Float → Left arrow → Use) and then head to the northeastern corner of the room.

Open the chest here for a Phoenix Down. [223/342]

Head immediately west and push leftwards to reveal a secret passage.

Follow the path and open the chest for an Ether. [224/342]

Make your way back to the northeastern chest and head south to find yet another chest. Open it for a Hi-Potion. [225/342]

Now go west, then north, then west again and take the stairs leading down.

Cave of Summons - B2

Float status wears off on floor change, so cast it again in the same manner you did for the first floor before going any further.

Head to the southeastern corner of the room and open the chest with a Hi-Potion. [226/342]

Now head west, then immediately north and follow the path northwest for a chest. Open it for Cottage. [227/342]

Go south back to the previous split, then head east and follow the path to the stairs leading down.

Cave of Summons - B3

Again, cast Float on everyone and then follow the linear path south to reach a chest. Open it for a Phoenix Down. [228/342]

Now go east past the split to find a chest containing a Bestiary. [229/342]

From the chest, head east and push against the right wall to reveal a secret passage.

Follow the secret passage: east, south, west, north a little and enter through the left side. Open all chests here for Hi-Potion, Poison Axe, and Kikuichimonji (what a name!). [232/342]

Make your way back to the previous chest without exiting the passage, then continue north to reach another exit.

Follow the linear path north to reach another chest but DON"T open it yet. Instead, heal up and quick-save, then open the chest for a monsters-in-a-box-encounter against 5 warriors.

You will be rewarded with Defender! (amazing weapon for Cecil btw). [233/342]

That's 11/11 for this dungeon.

Backtrack to the southeastern exit, then go west to the split between the chests and head north to find a warp pad on the floor. Step on it.

Land Of Summons

Land of Summons

Head northwest from the warp pad and open the chest for an Ether. [234/342]

Continue north and open another chest with Bestiary. [235/342]

Now go in clockwise direction to the eastern portion of the area to find a chest containing 5000 Gil. [236/342]

Head south to reach the bottom area and open the chest for 6000 Gil. [237/342]

From the chest we just opened, go north and step on the shadowed off tile to get teleported to a secret room.

Head north and open all four chests for: Youichi's Bow, Dry Ether, Yoichi Arrow, and Elixir. [241/342]

Exit the secret room.

The next chest is behind the northern warp pad, so make your way to the topmost area and teleport yourself to the next area.

Once at the new location, step out the warp pad you came from and then immediately step on it again.

Walk SOUTH to reach the previously unreachable chest and open it for Rat Tail. [242/342]

Step on the warp pad once again.

Once ready, enter the northeastern house and open both chests for Bestiary and Phoenix Down. [244/342]

Exit the house.

Now enter the building just below (there should be a Chocobo in front).

Land of Summons - Library

Take the stairs leading down and then step on the warp pad.

Land of Summons - Throne Room

Heal up and quick-save, then speak to the queen.

Choose 'Yes' to challenge her to a fight.

Start the battle by casting Reflect on Asura to ensure that all her buffs end in your party members.

Now, attack with everyone while Rydia summons Titan, but be careful, Asura will counter-attack all damage with fairly powerful attacks. I recommend throwing Curaja on your party every turn.

Rydia has learned Asura! (1/5 non-secret summons)

Now that you have proven your worth, the King is open to challenge.

Heal up and quick-save, then speak to the old man and answer with 'Yes'.

This boss opens up with Tidal Wave which deals 100-600 damage to all your party members (what a great way to start a battle!).

Attack with Cecil, cast Bio with Rydia, Jump with Kain, Curaja the party every turn with Rosa, and cast Blitz with Edge, then set the auto-fight while you watch the show. The battle should be over within 5 minutes if your party is leveled enough (mine was around 40).

Rydia has learned Leviathan! (2/5 non-secret summons)

We're 'done' with this location.

You will notice that you have 11/11 chests and 0/2 items, but that's because the items aren't available until late in the game. I will remind you whenever the time comes, but for now, make your way back to the Underworld.

Sylvan Cave

Underworld

Our next destination is the cave at the northwestern corner of the underworld, so board the airship and make your way there.

Disembark and enter the cave.

Sylvan Cave - B1

ㅤ  ㅤ        ㅤ BESTIARY: SYLVAN CAVEㅤ ㅤIDMONSTERHPATKDEFGILEXP079Undergrounder6557653422714108Tiny Toad6001953351841109Bog Witch29609845983441110Evil Dreamer280010033623141111Mammon390010435255041112Malboro420011234585641

Just like as the previous location, the floor here is also dangerous. So the first thing you want to do is cast Float on all your party members (Magic → Rosa → White Magic → Float → Left arrow → Use).

Note: The Leviathan summon we recently got is extremely powerful and can one-hit most enemy groups in this dungeon. Be aware that it's fairly expensive, through (50 MP).

Now head east and open both reachable chests for Angel Arrow and Bestiary. [246/342]

Go south, then west, then south down the stairs.

Sylvan Cave - B2

Cast float on your party, then head east, north, and take the stairs leading down.

Sylvan Cave - B3

Cast float as usual, then head north and open all three chests (top right is accessible from a secret passage just under the bottom chest). Contents: Hi-Potion, Maiden's Kiss, and Fairy Rod. [249/342]

Go back south until about halfway the corridor, then go east to reveal a secret passage.

Follow the passage east, then north, then east to exit just above the five open chests. Head upstairs.

Sylvan Cave - B2

Cast float on your party, then follow the linear passage east and south to find four chests in a small room. Open all for Remedy, Bomb Core, 2000 Gil, and 3000 Gil. [253/342]

Continue south to find five more unopened chests. Do your thing for Maiden's Kiss, Maiden's Kiss, Ether, Bestiary, and Emergency Exit. [258/342]

Step on the hole under the chests to drop down to B3.

Sylvan Cave - B3

Cast Float on your party, then head north and west through a hidden passage to find a warp pad. Step on it.

Sylvan Cave - Hidden Chamber

Cast float on your party, then approach the chests but DON'T open them yet. Instead, heal up and quick-save, then open one by one.

Top left: Evil Dreamer x6 → Red Fang. [259/342]

Top middle: Evil Dreamer x6 → White Fang. [260/342]

Top right: Evil Dreamer x6 → Blue Fang. [261/342]

Bottom left: Malboro x2, Mammon x2 (Leviathan recommended)→ Moonring Blade. [262/342]

Bottom middle: Malboro x4 (Leviathan recommended) → Avenger. [263/342]

Bottom right: Undergrounder x2 → Medusa Arrow. [264/342]

After looting all chests, take the warp pad on the right side.

Underworld

You now back at the Underworld. However, we're still not done with the dungeon so heal up/rest and then re-enter.

Sylvan Cave - B1

You already know the drill. Cast Float and then make your way to B2: head all south to find the stairs.

Sylvan Cave - B2

Cast Float and head south and take the stairs leading up.

Sylvan Cave - B1

You're back at B1 but on a different area.

As usual, cast Float and head northeast to find a secret passage.

Follow the passage north, east, north, and west to reach the previously inaccessible chest. Open it for Elven Bow. [265/342]

Backtrack to the entrance and go west this time. Follow the path northwest to find two chests. Open both for Cottage and 1000 Gil. [267/342]

Now go south and take the nearest stairs down.

Sylvan Cave - B2

Cast Float on the party and follow the path all the way north, then go east and push rightwards to reveal a secret passage.

Follow the passage south (if you're at the top), east, south, east, a little north, and exit west to reach the chest. Open it for a monsters-in-a-box battle against Tiny Toad x6 and Bog Witch.

You will be rewarded with Mage Masher. [268/342]

Exit the passage the way you came from and head south until the middle staircase. Go up.

Sylvan Cave - B1

Cast float on your party, then head north to reach five chests. Open all for Arctic Wind, Golden Apple, Soma Drop, Ether, and Hi-Potion. [273/342]

Head down the southern stairs back to B2.

Sylvan Cave - B2

Cast Float on your party and go north. Take the stairs leading down.

Sylvan Cave - B3

Cast Float on your party one last time (finally) and open the chest near the entrance for an Elixir. [274/342]

That's all 30/30 for this dungeon.

Now, follow the southern path and enter the building.

Sylvan Cottage

You will meet an old familiar face here, but he's unconscious and there's nothing you can do to wake him up at this moment.

Open both chests for Hell Claw and Cat Claw, then head up the stairs. [276/342]

Sylvan Cottage - 2F

Step on the middle platform and choose to leave.

Sealed Cavern

Underworld

Back at the overworld and still outside Sylvan, farm the following bestiary entries:

Hell Flapper is also a common encounter at this area.

Once done, board the airship and land on the small peninsula just south of Sylvan Cave.

Farm here the following bestiary entries:

Yellow Dragon is fairly rare and usually spawns from an hatched Mystery Egg.

Once finished, board the airship and land outside the cave directly northwest of Tomra.

Enter the cave.

Sealed Cavern

Interact with the door, then use Luca's Necklace to open it.

Head inside.

King Naga is fairly common here.

All doors trigger a Trap Door encounter; try to do all as they're an excellent source of experience.

Go south through the rope, then open the chest at the very bottom for Bestiary. [277/342]

Now go through the north door.

Open both chests for a Kotetsu and Ether. [279/342]

Exit the room.

Head west and then north through the rope.

Go through the door.

Open both chests for Hi-Potion and an Ether. [281/342]

Both doors lead to an empty room, so avoid them unless you want to farm some easy EXP.

Once ready to continue, take the southeastern stairs to B2.

Sealed Cavern - B2

Head south through the rope, then open the chest for another Bestiary. [282/342]

Go back through the rope and head east this time. Open the chest for Phoenix Down. [283/342]

Continue north through the narrow ledge.

Go through the second door from right to left to find a chest. Open it for Light Sword. [284/342]

Leave the room.

Note: While most doors here lead to nothing, I still recommended doing them all for easy EXP. There's an achievement for reaching to level 70 with all characters after all.

Now go through the third door from right to left to find three chests. Open all for Elixir, Fuma Shuriken, and Light Curtain. [287/342]

Exit the room.

Head west and enter the leftmost door for two chests. Open both for Kotetsu and Black Cowl. [289/342]

Leave the room.

Make your way to the southwestern corner of the room and go through the door.

Open the chest on the path for an Ether, then head through the southwestern stairs. [290/342]

Sealed Cavern - B3

Open both chests for Hi-Potion and Phoenix Down. [292/342]

The eastern door leads to an empty room, so defeat it for easy EXP and then head through the southern exit.

Go south across the bridge, then head all the way east for a chest. Open it for Bell of Silence. [293/342]

The room nearby is empty, so it's up to you to fight or not to fight against the door. Once again, I highly recommend doing so for free EXP.

Once ready, head through the middle rope and break open the eastern door.

Enter the room and open both chests for Dry Ether and X-Potion. [295/342]

That's all the collectibles for this location. 19/19 chests.

Exit the room.

Go southwest and take stairs leading down.

Sealed Cavern - B4

Heal up and save, then go through the bottom door.

Go around the hole and take the stairs leading down.

Sealed Cavern - B5

Head north across the bridge and defeat the door, then go through it.

Crystal Room

Take the Dark Crystal from the pedestal and then head back out.

Sealed Cavern - B5

Heal up and quick-save, then approach the bridge to trigger a boss fight.

The wall advances over time and once it's close enough to your party, it will kill one of your characters and then return back to its original position.

The battle itself should be relatively easy if you spam Leviathan, so do that while attacking with everyone else. I personally was able to take the boss down before any of my characters died.

After the fight, make your way back to the entrance of the dungeon.

Attempt to exit the dungeon to trigger a cutscene.

Kain leaves the party...

Now exit the dungeon.

Head all the way south past the split and open the chest for Genji Gloves. [299/342]

Backtrack to the split and go east, then push rightwards at the top of the rock formation to reveal a secret passage.

Follow the passage to reach a chest. Open it for Genji Shield. [300/342]

Go back the way you came from and then head south to find the stairs leading down. Go down.

Cave of Bahamut - B2

Head east, then north to find a chest near the main path. Open it for Genji Armor. [301/342]

Now go east past the wizard and open the last chest for this location to receive a Genji Helm. [302/342]

That also completes the Genji set, which should be equipped on Cecil.

Heal your party up and quick-save, then interact with the wizard.

Behemoth counter attack all damage with strong physical hits. Be careful.

Spam Leviathan with Rydia, Flare with FuSoYa, and attack with Cecil and Edge (cast Mirage on Edge beforehand) while Rosa heals the party every turn. This strategy worked for me every single time.

After the battle, go through the north door to continue with the dungeon.

Cave of Bahamut - B3

Head south and heal up + quick-save, then interact with the wizard for another Behemoth encounter. Same strategy applies.

Continue through the narrow passage to find yet another wizard. You already know the drill.

After the third and last encounter against a Behemoth, heal up and quick-save, then climb up the north staircase and talk to the God of Summons.

Ok, the first thing you want to do here is cast Reflect on all your party members using both white mages. Then the second thing is spamming Leviathan with Rydia and attacking with Cecil and Edge.

Once Bahamut's count reaches 0, he will cast Mega Flare and deal 9999 damage to everyone without Reflect, so make sure all your party have it to prevent casualties. Mega Flare will be also reflected to himself, dealing 9999 free damage.

If he doesn't die by that point, rinse and repeat until he does.

After the battle, Rydia will be rewarded with the Bahamut summon! (4/5 non-secret summons)

Make your way out the cave.

One of the hummingways holds an item shop with the most rare usable items in the game. They're kinda expensive, though. I still recommend getting a few Ethers if you're low on them and have the funds.

We visited this place mostly for the 'Adventurous Wayfarer' achievement, which requires visiting all locations in the game.

Leave the cave.

Board the Lunar Whale and interact with the Crystal to return to the Blue Planet.

The Giant Of Babel: Part I

Overworld

What a perfect re-arrangement they did to the best track in the game!

An epic cutscene will automatically play as soon as you return to the Blue Planet, then you will be thrown into the next dungeon...

Mouth of the Giant

ㅤ  ㅤ        ㅤ BESTIARY: THE GIANT OF BABELㅤ ㅤIDMONSTERHPATKDEFGILEXP135Beamer30008848903199136Centaurion3500126512209699137Mech Soldier490011839857999138Searcher5500138490015004140Giant Soldier100001284150031000141Mech Dragon180001384255041400

This is a one-visit location. Make sure to get everything before attempting the boss, or you will miss the stuff permanently (which you don't want at this point of the game, right?).

Mech Dragon only spawns on the room just before the boss fight: Stairwell of the Giant.

Something you really want to do before completing the dungeon is to stock up on Sirens which can be stolen from the Searcher enemy. Why is that? because that item can summon an encounter against the rarest enemy of your current location, which will be extremely useful when we start farming secret summons and the elusive Pink tail.

Best Method: get into the battle with a Searcher, then kill everything else except for one weak enemy such as the Centaurion. Once done, heal up the party if they're not full life and then Defend with everyone but Edge and Rosa, then Pray with Rosa and Steal the **** out from the Searcher with Edge. Press Q to auto-battle/speed up the game and wait until you steal several Sirens. Repeat as many times as you want. You can pretty much go do something else while the auto-battle steals the Sirens for you!

Try to stack 99 before completing the dungeon; trust me,you will thank me later.

After reading the best tip of the game I just gave you, head north and step on the blue pad.

Neck of the Giant

Step on the blue pad.

Chest of the Giant

Head south and then west to find a chest. Open it for Shuriken. [303/342]

Continue east and open the chest for an Ether. [305/342]

Go up the stairs north, then head immediately west and open the chest for Siren. [306/342]

Backtrack to the stairs near the previous chest and head northeast for one more chest. Open it for Yoichi Arrow. [307/342]

Now step on the blue pad west from here.

Stomach of the Giant

Head up the stairs and open the chest for Silver Apple. [308/342]

This boss can morph into any of the Elemental Lords, which include:

Scarmiglione: Weak to Fire; cast Fira with Rydia and FuSoYa, and Flame with Edge.

Cagnazzo: Weak to Thunder; cast Thundaga with Rydia and FuSoYa, and Blitz with Edge.

Barbariccia: No weakness; summon Bahamut with Rydia, Flare with FuSoYa, Holy with Rosa, and attack with Cecil and Edge.

Rubicante: No weakness; summon Bahamut with Rydia, Flare with FuSoYa, Holy with Rosa, and attack with Cecil and Edge.

After the battle, you will be rewarded with the following achievement:

Rematch Defeated the four elemental lords again.

Feel free to head back to save point and use a Cottage to refill your HP/MP.

Once ready, take the blue warp pad north from where the previous boss fight took place.

If you kill both nodes while the CPU is alive, it will cast Object 199 twice (killing two party members) and then revive both nodes. Because of this, the best way to handle this boss is by destroying the Defense Node and then focusing on defeating the CPU. Leave the Attack Node for the end.

Anyway, it's an easy fight if you follow these instructions.

After the battle, a scene will play.

FuSoYa leaves the party... but Kain takes his place! (and with very well equipped too!)

Watch some more scenes until you regain control.

You have exactly 1 minute to win this battle or Odin will use an extremely powerful attack that deals around 5000 damage.

Sounds tricky, right? well, it is not. It's fairly easy if you summon Bahamut with Rydia, spam Holy with Rosa, jump with Kain, and attack with the rest.

This boss is kinda annoying as it counter-attacks all damage with the Slow spell. For this reason, have Rosa cast Haste on all party members to keep nullifying the beforementioned status ailment.

As for attacks, Summon Bahamut with Rydia, Jump with Kain, and attack with Cecil and Edge.

Don't forget to heal the party up with Rosa whenever required!

After the battle, you will be awarded with the Murasame, the second best katana in the game! (1/4 sealed equipment)

Open the chest here for a Red Fang. [329/342]

There's an extremely rare creature you want to fight in this specific room. I'm talking about the Flan Princess! which has a nasty 1/64 chance to spawn. Thankfully, we can get into a battle against them by using the Siren items we farmed in the Giant of Babel (because you did, right?), so heal up and quick-save, then go to menu → Items and use Siren to invoke five Flan Princess!

ㅤ  ㅤ        ㅤ BESTIARY: THIS ROOMㅤ ㅤIDMONSTERHPATKDEFGILEXP157Flan Princess2000015455555510000

Flan Princess likes to attack with an annoying ability called 'Dancing', which insta-berserks most if not all your party party members. They don't do much besides that, though, so it's all matter of time and patience until your inevitable victory.

But what's the objective of fighting such an infuriating enemy? simple. There's a 1/64 chance of getting a Pink Tail as a drop after the battle, and we need at least one for the Tail of Myth achievement. You can leave this grind for after completing the game, and that's what I recommended. You could spend here way too many hours that it could end breaking the plot immersion, and we're almost done with the story.

For reference, I spent 99 Sirens and still wasn't able to get a Pink Tail, so don't overwrite your quick-save when farming to have multiple attempts if the first doesn't go as planned.

Either way, the choice to farm it now or later is all yours.

After collecting or not collecting a Pink Tail, exit the room and take the stairs leading down.

Follow the long stairs up and step on another pad.

Lunar Subterrane: Part III

Lunar Subterrane - B5

Continue up another set of stairs and open the chest on the path for a monsters-in-a-box encounter against a Behemoth.

You will be rewarded with Protect Ring! [334/342]

Continue upstairs and step on yet another warp pad.

Rest up if you have any unused Cottages and save your progress.

Once ready, go through the southern exit.

Interact with the sword on the pedestal to trigger a boss fight.

       Dark Bahamut     IDHPATKDEFM.DEFM.POWWEAK.RESIST.ABSORBSGILEXP190600001605528NoneInstant Death, Silence, Sleep, Paralyze, Darkness, Poison, Petrify, Confuse, Mini, Toad, Pig, Gradual Petrification, Curse, Float, Berserk, StopNone064000

This nasty creature opens up with an unavoidable Mega Flare attack that deals insane amounts of damage to your party, then it will cast Reflect on itself. So, the first thing you want to do is heal up the party.

Be aware that summoning Bahamut can be extremely dangerous due to the boss counter-attacking that with another Mega Flare. However, we can take advantage of this.

Once your party is fully healed, have Rosa cast Reflect on all members while they attack, then once all are protected with Reflect, spam Bahamut with Rydia to deal 9999 damage of the summon plus 9999 more of the countered Mega Flare from the boss.

If you did this correctly, the battle should be over within 10 minutes.

You will be rewarded with the Ragnarok, the best sword in the game! (2/4 sealed equipment)

Now make your way back to the chest with Cottage past the hidden bridge.

Once back at the chest, take the eastern stairs and follow the path to the next door. Go through it.

Open the northwestern chest for a monsters-in-a-box encounter against 3x Selene Guardian and a Dark Sage.

You will be rewarded with Minerva Bustier. [335/342]

Go through the northeastern door.

Lunar Subterrane - B7

Head south and through the first door you see for a save point. Rest up if you have Cottages left and save your progress.

Exit the room.

Now enter the second room to the right.

Interact with the spear to trigger a boss fight.

This boss opens up with Doom on two of your characters, which gives you ten turns before they die.

Spam Bahamut with Rydia, Holy with Rosa, Jump with Kain, and attack with the other two. The battle should be over within 3 turns.

You will be rewarded with Holy Lance for your feat, the best lance in the game! (3/4 sealed equipment)

Exit the room.

Re-enter the first room to heal up and save, then proceed through the third door.

Go through between the pillars to trigger a boss fight.

This battle is a joke if you have Cecil equipped with the Ragnarok (should deal 9999 damage at around level 75) and Kain with the Holy Lance.

Open the chests for two Ribbons! [337/342]

Equip them immediately on Rosa and Rydia.

Leave and feel free to pay another visit to the first room with the save point.

Head to the east end, then north, then down the stairs, then through the door.

Epic music to pump you up during the last floors of the game!

All enemies here are considered bosses (as you can hint out from the music), so save at every step you take and have the party healed up at all times. Keep in mind that Behemoth is a normal encounter here...

Go down the eastern stairs, then head all the way west for a chest. Open it for Fuma Shuriken. [338/342]

Continue south thought the stairs, then take the split south and approach the katana.

Do I have to mention to heal up and quick-save before interacting with it? Well, do that.

Avoid casting Thunder-based magic at all costs, as the boss counter-attacks with Whirl which reduces any party member HP to single digits.

The boss opens up with two Tidal Wave attacks, so heal up ASAP. Leave Rosa to heal during the whole battle while Rydia summons Bahamut, Kain jumps, and Cecil with Edge attack.

It's not really a difficult battle, just have the party with high health and you'll be good to go.

You will be rewarded with the Masamune, the best katana in the game! (4/4 sealed equipment)

Power Unleashed Obtained all sealed equipment.

Backtrack to the split, then go through the east path to reach the stairs leading down. Go down.

Lunar Subterrane - B10

Head south through the stairs and open the chest on the eastern side for a Fuma Shuriken. [341/342]

Follow the extremely linear path southwards and step on the warp pad at the bottom.

This is the last room of the game. Heal up and quick-save, then head north to watch a scripted battle between Golbez and FuSoYa against Zemus...

Congratulations, they just defeated the last boss for you! Enjoy the credits.

Just kidding, that was just the warm-up round.

Prepare yourself for another scripted battle where our heroes get obliterated ... and then some more scenes.

We still have things to do, so refer to the section below for the remaining achievements.

Cleanup: Random Drops (WIP)

This section is a work in progress.

Here comes the part that ruins the achievement completion for most players. Yes, I'm talking about the random drops for the Secret Summons and the Adamant Armor.

We will start with the summons as they're a little faster.

If you load your completed save, you will start outside the Crystal Palace, so make your way back to the Lunar Whale and head to the Blue Planet.

Author comment: I'm still trying to get the drops for me... LOL. Come back later!
