Highroad: South End : Anyhow, in this area, as you go along, you’ll be given an in-battle tutorial regarding armored enemies. Some enemies have armor on them that makes them tough to damage physically, and sometimes magic just is not viable for them. In that case, you have the Piercing ability: this allows you to ignore their armor and deal normal damage. In the late-game, this will become a mostly-pointless aspect, but it is critical for survival up until almost the end. Auron is the main one for this skill, usually having it on all of his weapons, and Kimahri helps with that, not to mention that you can add it to your weapons yourself … but that’s a ways down the road.
When you arrive on the Highroad, go ahead and save with the nearby Save Sphere, then head along the linear path for a bit. (By the way, you can play Blitzball via the Save Spheres now, just FYI.) As you go along the path, speak with the old man on the west side to learn a bit about the history of the statue. Further on down, you’ll be stopped by him, after which you should go west and open the chest for an Ice Brand weapon.
Further to the north, you will find an alcove to the east where you can find a woman clothed in green. (Luigi?) This woman is Belgemine , also one of the summoners. She will often come to test you on the way and, in this fight, you’ll use Valefor versus her Ifrit. (It would be nice to come into this fight with his Overdrive.) Basically just have Valefor go between Blizzard and Shield to live against Meteor Strike and hopefully you’ll win. You’ll get the Seeker’s Ring for losing, and an Echo Ring for winning. Continue on into the next area.
Highroad: South : Continue along the main path. As you pass by the Chocobo (you know, the big yellow bird?), go past the bird northward to a Remedy . There is also a Red Ring and three Softs to locate across this part of the Highroad or to get from people, so look around.
Highroad: Central : Like with the area before, it’s a linear path along which you can go into the obvious alcoves and speak with people for various treasures: Lv. 1 Key Sphere, four Antidotes, 2,000 Gil, 600 Gi, a Hi-Potion, and three Eye Drops . Moving along.
