View Full Version : 20 years late

07-02-2013, 09:03 PM
Lately I'm playing some old SNES games and I realised I've never even tried FF5 (whaaaaaat). All I know is that there are fighting classes and that you can be up to 5 in battle.

Anyway, with the less spoilers possible, could you tell me some useful stuff ?! Like, getting some items I must not miss. Some things I sould do before it's too late...

Make sure you get Shiva from behind the waterfall when they mention it! It'll be a useful summon later on!

Here's a nice list of things that are missable that you should try and get:


And also two more missable summons:

Catoblepas - defeat him in a random battle in the forests on an island in the northwest corner, accessible only by submarine (World 2)
Carbuncle - defeat him in Exdeath's Castle (World 2)

No, you can't be 5 in battle. It's just 4.

Also, don't be a wuss. Get the brave blade, not the chickenknife.

You may or may not already know this, but the "mime" and "freelance" (or bare) jobs inherit the passive abilities and highest stat bonus of any jobs you master. So if Bartz masters the ninja class, when he's a freelancer he can automatically equip 2 weapons without having to equip the dual wield ability.
