View Full Version : Your magic using techniques

Which magic did you choose to assign to the shortcut buttons for Sora, or did you change it depending on your situation?

I always keep Cure/Cura on button X...easiest for me to remember when I'm desperate and need to cast it :p
I usually have Fira on the Triangle because... I don't know, if I use any spells in general fights it's usually because I'm trying to get something to die quickly, so I just use Fira.
The other button I used to keep Thunder on, but recently I've put Aero there because I've found that in boss fights I need to cast this to help defend myself..

Sometimes I change the Triangle button to a different spell such as Stopra or Gravity in a boss fight if I think they might be more useful.

Overall in boss fights I tend to save magic for healing which is why I keep defensive spells on the shortcut buttons... I find that this is the most important to be able to do quickly when you are low on HP. I do wish you could cast all spells this quickly though, as I find it takes too long sometimes going through the list while being attacked. >< So my personal strategy ends up being just to attack a lot and save MP for healing :p

Yeh, I always keep Cure on X. Fire on Square even though I never use it, and Aero on Triangle.

Cure spell, Aero spell and Gravity spell. I don't know which buttons though.

I have cure on X, because it's easy to remember, Aero on Square and Fire on Triangle.
I only use Aero sometimes if I'm fighting Sephiroth, I often use Cure, but it's a very rare occurance for me to cast Fire.

I have Curaga on X because X tends to be my "panic button", whether it be like I'm about to die or that the boss is vulnerable for a split second. Square button wields Aeroga and Triangle has Gravity or Fire, it changes according to whatever I feel like changing it to.

I always put the Cure spells on X. I just seem to have the quickest reflex to push X for some reason. So, the faster the Cure, the less you die, right.

The other two change depending on how I feel and what accessories I am using. If I am using accessories to make my MP very high, then I always put Thunder on [], because Thundaga will rip through a group of enemies in about a second. And I put either Gravity or Stop on Triangle depending on how I feel. If I have accessories to make my strength very high, then I put Aero on [], and usually Fire on Triangle incase I need magic for something, it seems to be the quickest to cast.

X - Curaga
[] - Aeroga (square looks kinda like a "block", get it?)
^ - Blizzaga, I like its shotgun like aspect :)

I don't really use much magic other than cure and aero spells. Offensive magic seriously lacks punch.

Cure -> X
Aero -> [ ]
Blizzard/Thunder -> /\

I liked blizzard and thunder early on, they were useful at the beginning if you started as a caster. Made the beginning painfully easy that way. But later on, I only found myself using Cure and an occasional Aero.

Cure/Cura/Curaga - X
Aero/Aerora(?) - Square
Gravija - Triangle

I never used any of the other spells because they were just so darn weak.

Cross button---- Curaga
Triangle button- Firaga
Square button-- Blizzaga

The only one I ever use is Curaga. I prefer to run into a group of enemies with my sword drawn and banner flying. Besides, Donald can handle attack magic. If he runs low on MP, Goofy uses MP Gift. The only move I have him use that consumes MP.
