The reasons why it hasn't been discovered is that it's obscure and tedious as hell, but still pretty interesting that you can find brand new things even after all this time!

...That is fucking bizzare.

Diddy did it.

I agree. This is just weird. :|

Mind blown. O_____O

It's no wonder that Bill Gates lost his fortune investing in the FFIX strategy guide.

Is it even worth it for a Protect Ring? xP

But it is pretty cool that this was found so late on. Nice to know people are still going through the game with a fine-toothed comb.

From what I read, some people did know about it.

It's always been listed in the FFIX Ultimania secrets section, but somehow no English speakers with the Ultimania (including myself, doh!) ever noticed it, so it's gone unknown by us for all this time, until someone posted about the Ultimania secret on the gamefaq's FFIX board, someone tested and confirmed it's real, and the collective minds of FFIX fans everywhere were blown.

Damn, but the sidequest looks boring as shit and the reward is something I could get by going to a synthesis shop, so I probably won't even bother with it.

Excalibur II perfect runs must now be re-completed to include this.

Ready? Set. Go!

I agree. This is just weird. :|

To be honest most of FFIX is weird lol. :jess:

Darn beat me to it.

I think it's very interesting that it took so long for the majority of people to find out this was there, but it does seem like a lot of effort for such a minor reward. Especially considering by the time you finish this, it's too late in the game for Protect Ring to be useful.

So...does the family ever find each other, or...?

So...does the family ever find each other, or...?I know, right? I sat through all of that waiting for some sort of mass freakshow reunion and now I feel distinctly unfulfilled. :colbert:

Front page it!

I know ABOUT it I didn't do it usually. I didn't realize it was "hidden" though o.o

I would never waste my time on something so tedious. Maybe if it had some impact on the story like Zidane's relationship with the Nero brothers.
