    Nom nom nom Level 1 Ozma Challenge Guide

    Necronopticous and I have been doing this challenge again recently, and we're very frustrated by mistakes and misinformation in the guides we've been following. Because of this, we decided to document the challenge ourselves, hopefully more accurately and detailed -- as well as experiment a little on our own in a twin playthrough we're doing simultaneously, hoping to optimize parts of this challenge.

    Disclaimer: This is a work in progress.

    Note that we'll be omitting most of the obvious details, like how to progress the story. Mostly, we'll be providing checklists (items, battle preparation and progression, steals, etc.) that are relevant to the challenge.

    Battle prep isn't necessary at this point.

    You can also earn some cards by doing well in the jump-rope mini game, although it isn't necessary.

    Enter from the square.

    Items:
    • Ether


    Alexandria/Weapon Shop
    Enter from the square.

    Items:
    • Remedy

    • 3 Gil
    • Eye Drops


    Alexandria/Outside Steeple

    Talk to the boy on the dock and agree to find his missing cat. Return to the first screen of Alexandria and talk to his cat. He'll run up and take his cat. Talk to him again at the dock to receive Bomb Card.


    Alexandria/Steeple

    • Tent
    • Potion

    If you come here prior to meeting Puck, you'll also find Hippaul's stash of cards.

    Mognet:
    • Receive a letter from Kupo to Monty.

    Be sure to save your game, then follow Puck up the ladder.

    Items:
    • 29 Gil
    • 63 Gil
    • 92 Gil



    Alexandria Castle 86.gif


    Click to show/hide.

    You have the opportunity right away to earn 10,000 Gil by impressing 100 nobles. While it's not necessary, it's recommended. Impressing 100 nobles will also earn you an early Moonstone when you talk to Brahne as Steiner.

    Impressing 100 nobles is hard -- maybe impossible -- if you're emulating the game or playing it on a modern television (due to the lag they cause). If you're playing on an older television, it's actually kind of easy. I can't comment on the PC versions.

    Alexandria Castle/Guardhouse

    Items:
    • Phoenix Down


    Alexandria Castle/Throne

    Items:
    • Moonstone (100 nobles impressed) or Silk Shirt (<100 nobles impressed) when you talk to Brahne.


    Prima Vista/Engine Room
    Turn the wheel left and then right to reveal two treasure chests.

    Items:
    • Phoenix Down
    • Phoenix Pinion


    Battle prep is unnecessary at this point.

    BATTLE - Steiner:
    1. Steal Leather Hat and Silk Shirt.
    2. Attack until the battle ends.


    BATTLE - Steiner, Weimar, and Haagen:
    1. Kill off everyone except Garnet to end the battle quickly.


    BATTLE - Steiner & Bomb:
    1. Kill off everyone except Garnet or just keep stalling.

    Make sure Zidane is in the back row. Save, then exit to the southeast and proceed through the next scene to encounter some story battles.

    BATTLE - Prison Cage:
    1. Zidane trances immediately. Have him use Free Energy.
    2. Attack with Steiner.

    Shouldn't need to heal Garnet.

    I watched about 10-11 minutes of the Cleyra sequence. Interesting strat with Magic Hammer. I didn't know that Black Mages teleport away when their MP is low.

    I think Necronopticous and I are gonna experiment with silence and element-nullification for the Cleyra battles.
