Local Enemy Bestiary

Begin by putting some new gear on Strago, as well as an Esper to let him learn some basic spells. Speaking strictly of Strago, let him abuse Aqua Breath in this dungeon whenever you end up fighting the six-Balloon formation. You’ll fight enemies by walking into the mobile flames.

So, onto the dungeon. From the entrance, go north to the next room. Go north again to the next room. In this room, you’ll find two doors. Go through the left one for a battle; through the right one to continue.

In the next room, go through the right door for a Flame Rod , or through the left one to continue forward. This room repeats the same idea, but it is an Ice Rod rather than a Flame Rod. In this next room, the hall, go forward and heal up, for you have a boss soon to come.

When fighting a lot of Balloons at once, use Aqua Breath to kill them in one go.

Flame Eater, Balloons, Grenades

The Flame Eater is able to use a basic attack, Hit (basic attack power +50%), Fire, Fira, Firaga , Fireball, Reflect, Protect, and Bomblet. This last one is unfamiliar to you; it signals the future coming of Balloons and/or Grenades. These monsters are unaltered from their usual selves.

Simple strategy here. Have Strago spam Aqua Breath . While this happens, summon Kirin with someone. If possible, also summon Shiva and another Esper (not Ifrit). Let Terra enter a Trance to be powered-up, and let Locke pretty much just Attack.

If you equip Terra with Blizzara, activate her Trance to boost her power. It will take off a good 5000 HP. Two of those and the fight is over. Aqua Breath is also excellent when there are Balloons present.

After the battle, head to the back of the house to find Relm. You get crushed by flaming rubble alongside her. Almost.

Join the fight against Kefka, a maniacal, crazy, clown lookalike (who is scarier than that sounds), as he attempts to bring the world to ruin. You take control of a multitude of very colorful characters (including a little girl with a paintbrush!) all of whom are joined together by fate, united by their mutual hatred of Kefka and the Empire. Final Fantasy VI is a vibrant, hilarious world and one of the most loved games of the series due to its excellent writing and complex battle system.

Our guide offers full assistance in your journey through the world including:

  • A full walkthrough from start to finish of the main story.
  • How to acquire all Espers, including the extra ones like Cactuar and Gilgamesh.
  • How to find every character when in the World of Ruin.
  • All side quests from the Cultists’ Tower to how to acquire Lores for Strago.
