    ichigo FFIX - Level 1 Ozma Challenge

    Necronopticous and I will be streaming our "LV 1 Ozma Challenge" playthrough on Twitch, if anyone's interested, at least once per week. This is our 3rd time doing this challenge, but first time streaming it.

    http://www.twitch.tv/JumpLust

    We're streaming at the moment, actually.

    Yup. This is our favorite FF challenge. We completed it once separately, once after we first moved in together (with Kishi, if I recall correctly), and this time we wanted to record it since we've been streaming a bit.

    How can this even be possible? I'd think your party wouldn't even be able to take one hit, let alone Curse + Doomsday combo.

    It's actually pretty easy. Levels in FFIX don't mean a thing if you're well equipped. I done lvl 1 Ozma before and basically it's grind before and luck during the battle. Once you're set up, it dead in few tries.

    The only truly unbeatable enemy in FFIX on all lvl1 is friendly Yan.

    I typically stream solo 2-3 times per week after work (7PM Pacific Time) on weekdays and randomly throughout weekends. For this particular challenge stream, we're planning on picking back up tomorrow and playing throughout the day, and then whenever we both have the energy after work next week. We save all of our past broadcasts on Twitch if you want to skim through and catch up to where we are at. We ended late last night near the end of Disc 1!

    Yeah, definitely. The real challenge is getting to Ozma without ever gaining any levels with any permanent characters. Once you do that, actually beating him is just a matter of preparation & luck.

    We're about to do the segment in Cleyra right now, which is one of the most frustrating parts of this challenge.

    Edit #1: We didn't have much trouble with this part, actually. We spent less than an hour fighting through the soldiers and mages.

    Edit #2: Screenshot!

    So, the guide on GameFAQs for this challenge recommends -- throughout the entire game -- to use equipment that boosts Spirit for Vivi and Quina when using Stop or Add Status abilities.

    However, after looking at a mechanics guide for the game, it seems that the magic stat affects Stop (not spirit stat), and Add Status has a flat chance of 10%...

    I'mma see if I can test this. Anyone else confirm?

    Why do you keep some characters dead in boss battles, when you don't get exp from bosses?

    It is, but I think we'll be able to easily cast Stop on monsters in the Outer Continent to make up for any lost AP, if necessary.
