I got home from work last night determined to defeat Zeromus. I used a combination of the above tactics. It still took me a few tries though.
First I leveled up my characters to around lv 65. I tried to find the Pink Puffs, but no luck.
I entered the battle and had Edge steal the DkMatter. Rosa cast shell on the party, then Cecil used the crystal.
I had Kain jump every turn (pathetic excuse for a Dragoon).
Cecil attacked every turn.
Edge threw everything but the kitchen sink. (Good thing I bought about 10 extra Fumas.)
Rydia cast Ashura every turn.
And Rosa alternated between casting Cure4 and Shell when needed.
He still beat me up pretty good a few times though. That was hard.
Now I need to decide whether to play FF5 next or Crono Trigger.
Not really. If you equip the right weapons and armor, he can have high stats for both black and white magic. I actually had fun with it, and baught a bunch of different equipment before I got him. I tried different combinations, and eventualy came up with FoSoYa’s will and wisdom up to the early 70’s, allowing him do do tons of damage with attack spells.
I’d say that the PSX version of FFIV is probably the best so far. No offense to the guys who diligently translated the ROM, but Square did a pretty damn good job themselves. What’s more, it doesn’t have the terrible load times that plague FFV and VI on PSX.
Lol. Look! An enemy! Shall we fight it? walk up to enemy … … … Uhh, are we gonna fight it, or are we just gonna stand here? … … … Hello? … … … Ummm… battle starts Aha, here we go! fight, fight, battle ends … … … So uh, are we gonna keep walking now? Or do we enjoy just standing around in this sewer?
For some reason, the load times went down to about 20 seconds when I tilted the PSOne on it’s side, just making it lean against something. Still a royal pain in the ass but at least it was more bearable.
