Final Fantasy VIII Hints, Tips
- Various Tips
- Draw early on in the game
Speed is everything
Be careful, save every 20 minutes
Keep Squall in Yellow, it's fun
Keep your G.F.'s happy, but don't use them too often, your SeeD rankings go down... just like running away a lot.
If at first you don't succeed, throw your controller at the screen screaming how bad of a game this is. j/k, this is a really awesome game, try finding the enemy's weakness and exploit, exploit, exploit!
If at first you don't succeed, try again!
Draw from all bosses, never know what you can get!
Have lots of fun!
Play cards alot, and morph almost every new monster you come across, sometimes more than once. It helps later in the game.
Spend you time drawing Melt from an enemy with Laguna in the 3rd disk, don't be afraid to stop the enemys to do so.
Too weak to kill an enemy? Use Melt to do maximum damage!
To use limit, use Aura or be at low health. If it doesn't apear right away, don't fret! Just keep hitting Triangle.
- To get Squall’s 2nd best weapon in the 1st disk:
- In Galbadia Garden go play everyone cards there, collect as many cards as you can. Then use Quazlcoat's Ability 'Change cards to Items' and change Toonberry to Cutting Knife, fight the guys around Gulbadia Garden to get a lot of Bolts, get 2 of the card on the 5th page-1st card, and turn 3 Adamantian turtles into Shell. You don't need the magazine to buy the Weapon, you just need all the materials, and it will show up in the shop, the magazines are for you to know what items you need.
- Ultima Weapon
- Ultima Weapon is at the bottom of the Underwater Reaserch Facility, the place where you got Bahamut. There are pretty nasty enemies down there, so be careful, like it matters if you have everyone at level 100, which you should. Also, have Squall's Best Weapon equiped. First, you climb down the vine, then go hit the control panel, it will take off 4 points. In order to succed, you need 10 points left over. Go down stairs, now go to the other control panel and take off 2 points. Go down and hit the control panel nearest to where you came down, take off 1. Now there is another control panel there, hit it and take 4 off, go through the door that opens and add 7 points back on. Go out and go down, take off 1 point from the control panel and go on the elevator. Take off 4 points to get past this door, then it's a matter of fighting/walking down to the bottom. When you get down there, kill off Squall then finish the battle/run away. Use raise to bring him back alive, and keep him in the yellow. Hit the control panel and after a long sceen, you fight Ultima Weapon. The key to this battle is having Squall's Speed and Attack up. Use his D-Move on Ultima. It took me 4 limits to kill him.
