All the Help you need!http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/fi...ntasy_xii_b.txtQ: Where can I buy Teleport Stones?
A: Take a ride on an airship, merchants there sell them.Q: Where can I buy ________ spell / technick / weapon / etc?
A: New equipment, magicks, and tecknicks become available in shops as you progress in the story.Q: What do battle chains do?
A: You recieve a higher chain the more you kill one type of monster one after another (without visiting a village / town or save point, etc). They drop "bags" that give more items, cast magicks on the party, or drop equipment that is above average. The highest possible is 999, but you only need around 100 to see the full effect of chaining.Q: Why use one weapon-type over another? (Hammer, Mace, Sword, etc)
A: Some weapons use other elements other than strength to have attack power. Some are faster, some have more critical-hit chance, or combo chance. Some raise MP or magick power, etc. For a full list of what does what, visit a guide.Q: Should I keep all 6 characters around the same level?
A: Until around level 40 this is a good idea. You can switch party members in and out during boss fights, and its also very helpful when you want to use multiple mist charge technicks (quickenings, summoning, etc). After the 40's area, start focusing on one main 3-man party to get stronger.Q: How much EXP is needed to reach level 99?
A: 13,741,129Q: How much LP is needed to fill the License Board?
A: 13,180 (an extra 1,705 if you count quickenings and espers)Q: How do I get rid of relfect?
A: Use the magick Dispel.Q: How do I use Quickenings correctly?
A: Check the thread, "The Official 'How to use Quickenings' thread". Here is a link, http://www.ffxii.net/forums/index.php?show...ickenings+GuideQ: Do I have to buy Magicks and Technicks for each individual character?
A: No, once you buy any Magick or Technick from a merchant, all your characters who have the correct license for them are now able to use them.Q: How come my First Aid always misses?
A: It is for critical recovery only, when your character's Health is in the red.Q: How does Charge work, exactly?
A: Wait until your MP is very low, and it will regain mana (not sure what exact formula to base this off of, but try only using it when your MP is below 20%)Q: What are the Greens used for, are they loot trash?
A: They can be used to rogue chocobos to ride them.Q: Help! My character seems to be stuck with status effects, such as Silence, or Reflect! Is my game bugged?
A: Check the character's equipment, some armor an accessories give permanent status effects when worn. Some can also cause your MP to be at zero as long as you're wearing the item.Q: Whats a good way to get money at any level?
A: Steal is your firend. Use it in every battle. You'll start to notice which monsters have higher cost loot, especially when you steal a piece of equipment.
Q: How do I defeat the first Demon Wall inside King Raithwalls tomb?
A: The best method is to have your characters at a level above 25, all of them. have them all have at least one quickening. Use one 3-man party use the biggest chain of Quickenings possible as soon as the first starts. Then, once that's done, as soon as you're able to, switch the party members out and use a second Quickenings combo with the other 3 characters. Do the biggest chain you can. You'll need a bit of luck, you'll need to hit some high combos with the Quickenings on him. Hopefully after the Quickenings you can use some high hitters to take out the rest of his health with weapons. try not to cast Cure, or do anything but melee. if someone dies, just switch em out.
Q: What do I get for killing the first demon wall?
A: check the wall where he started. After killing the second demon wall, you'll be able to hit this switch, making a few new paths come available to you. Eaither way you go, it'll will bring you to the same destination. At the end there is a chance for a chest to show up, if the chest shows up, there is a chance for a powerful sword called the Demonsbane to be inside. To make sure you get the sword, save outside once the demon walls are defeated. If you don't get the Demonsbane, reload your game and try again. This might take longer than expected, tookme over a couple hours of trying.This post has been edited by Flames: Nov 23 2006, 10:01 PM
