The 24 Days of Final Fantasy III 2009 Edition -- Day Fourteen

Day Fourteen

LOCATION: Outside Nikeah

PARTY MEMBERS: Cyan (Lv. 23 HP 828/902 MP 166/193), Relm (Lv. 22 HP 795/809 MP 161/194), Gau (Lv. 23 HP 894/894 MP 198/198), Mog (Lv. 23 HP 859/883 MP 59/204)



GP: 11014

Well, I took on Ultros again, and this time, he was as easy as I remembered. The primary difference is that I equipped a pair of RunningShoes on Strago, and that I remembered to follow up my magical attacks with physical ones to keep some sort of balance. Before I knew it, Relm popped in and asked to draw Ultros' portrait, and I used the dreaded Sketch command to finish him off.

After this I got Relm in my party and moved forward. In the next room, I picked the hole that led to the Espers, and watched the various sequences that followed: Terra meeting with the Espers, everyone making peace in Thamasa, and Kefka thankfully breaking up the scene with his "surprise" entrance and wiping the floor with everyone at once. Once I got control of General Leo, I engaged Kefka in mortal combat. Kefka actually managed to poison Leo in the battle and I wasted an Antidote on him, even though I knew Leo was going to die anyway. Still, I played through to Leo's end and watched as the more Espers fell to Kefka's hand.

After seeing the deaths of Espers and Imperial soldiers, I finally got control of the party again only to board the Blackjack and watch the Floating Continent rise into the air. I then decided to change my party members, when I noticed that the straggling characters had been "bumped up" to Level 23. This not only meant that Relm was my lowest leveled character at Level 22, but that I now had my pick of characters to select. I decided to take Cyan, Relm, Gau, and Mog, then land in the Veldt to begin building up Mog and Gau's skills.

If Strago weren't at such a high level, I would have brought him on the Veldt so he could learn some Lores. In fact, I still might do it later on if I have time before tackling the Floating Continent. But I wanted to go from the Veldt to the Serpent Trench, and I didn't feel like switching characters after gathering Rages. Even if the experience gained from the non-Veldt battles was minimal, I'd rather have it go to some people I wouldn't be getting for a little while (and could also be technically disqualified for going to the Floating Continent due to said experience).

I went to Molbiz, landed, talked to the beaten former soldier and received the Tintinabar. So I wandered on the Veldt for a little while, trying to build up Rages. Eventually, I decided to stop fighting and went to Crescent Mountain, when lag reared its ugly head. I jumped into the Serpent Trench and took the long path, fighting as many enemies as I could. Once I got to Nikeah, I bought a few too many Magus Hats (they'll be good for the Fanatics Tower), a few needless items, then exited town, and saved.

    Right now I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this blog, now that I'm through with Game of Thrones. I might do a rewatch some day. Just not soon.

    So we've come to the end of the series. After this, no more of those characters we have come to love and hate. I'll admit some have grown on…
