I was struck by inspiration and made this. Consider it extremely late fanart for Kyro's Walter, if you want. Yes, I know Chemist can't and doesn't need to break rods unaided.

Run 3 - Pure Chaos - RED/GOON/KNIGHT/MIME - Complete!



No way in hell I'm going after Omega with this crew.

It wasn't that bad, I ended up being powerful enough physically that the dragoon was reduced to Chicken Knife jumping, dualcasting Life/Safe, Life/Cura, or Cura/Cura, or elixirbotting. The Mime had Equip Swords, Fight, and like everybody else, Two-Handed. Two-Handed Knight stuck with the Ragnarok, Mime had the Excalibur, and the Red Mage was doing some serious WORK with the Rune Edge.

All in all a pretty okay run.

Just do the fiesta. It's my first full run and discord and guides help a ton. Plus I owe ten bucks for every newbie run to charity for the first five.

Thanks for the help y'all. Two bards with sandals was absolutely enough to keep it locked down until I could start bouncing Thundagas off my berserker, who ended up getting the killing blow.
Turns out the rune axe does pretty legit damage when you can slap Black 6 on them.

One zerker is fine, and can occasionally be pretty drat good. It's in multiples they start getting troublesome


Shinryu down. Once again, pretty standard, used the wand to set berserk, then spammed phoenix downs while the zerker played the harp.

I'm adding another late toxx because gently caress it. $1 for every normal kill of the Tyrannosaur in the Moogle Cave, without exploiting its Undead status. That means no Phoenix Downs, no Healing Items, just a regular fight. The limit will be $25. Quote this or something of mine so it's easier to see, if you please.

Edit: It'll have to be the honor system unless you feel like recording the entire fight I guess.

Zerker backed by a white mage is actually pretty good. The zerker provides the biggest thing white mage is lacking, great damage. And you can give your zerker white magic for out of combat healing and a nice increase to the damage of the rune axe.

Get your four death scythes, grind up to 25ish on black flames, move to mini dragons until you're level 45 or so. Sleepwalk through the rest of the game because you'll be hillariously overleveled for the entire rest of it with controllable characters.

You'll probably have money to spare for Flame rings, may as well get you some.

Aaand done. Took a few tries because I couldn't remember which part is the one that casts algamest, but other than that it was pretty smooth sailing after giving everyone ribbons and buffing up with Hero's Rime and Swift Song phase one, with the Black Mage to punch them to stop the singing.

Run #3 Pure Chaos
Mime, Berserker, Chemist, Geomancer





Synergy didn't exist with this team, but it didn't matter because Chemist. Mime was interesting to have early as it gave me access to rods, though by the end it was just a tankier Geomancer with Mix. Berserker had no useful abilities from the other classes, so I just gave them the Chicken Knife and hoped for the best.

You should of given the Geomancer Equip Axes and given him the rune Axe or Gaia Hammer so he could destroy the world with his geo magic stat, Geo/Zerker is shockingly potent. Mime would also be a good candidate for it, especially if the guy with mime has level max zerker and Geo because he'll have the best of both of their stats naturally. Give Mime Equip Axes and Drink for a laugh, or just Mix your way to victory if you want to be lame.

I have a little bit of expendable cash, so I think I'll make a of my own.

I will pay $10 per superboss (to a max of $50 for each, $100 total) for anyone that beats them "legitimately". That means no quickleaking/!calm/!sing/chemist berserking omega, and no berserking/quickleaking shinryu. Basically, fight the superbosses without breaking their script in some way.

It's hard to capture, if you are running bard/beastmaster/time/etc. I'll still accept submissions, just use the honor system.



Cannoneers can berserk but I figured I'd go for the legit kill. With a hasted dragoon dual-wielding dragon lances it was pretty easy tbh. Finally dragoon was good for something.

This was a weird one, I hit a bunch of roadblocks, but white mage with lance is pretty good. 5th job ranger was not my favorite, didn't want to grind rapid fire for everyone.

You know what loving sucks? Geomancer. What sucks even more? 4 geomancers against ifrit. And even worse than that is finally beating Ifrit, getting these screenshots and then remembering "Oh, I forgot to save" and have to do the whole thing again.



At least my Bartz is aptly named.


Here they are after beating byblos which was way easier than ifrit since fire works better on books than on fire demons. The memory numbers on screen are the character levels. SNES doesn't show where you are when in the menu so I couldn't get you that screenshot, hopefully this will do.

If anyone's curious by the way the way to fight Ifrit with four lvl 10 (yes, I could- and should have grinded to 15) Geomancers is to confuse him with !Terrain until he runs out of his 1000 MP and then have three people in the back row throw potions to outheal Flame and Kicks while a fourth tries to poke him with a knife 30 times. It only cost me 40 minutes of game time and 76 potions!

It might sound like I'm complaining but coming up with solutions like this is my favorite thing with the fiesta

Doom Goon
Sep 18, 2008




In case you thought I forgot something, I'm doing the Randomizer again BUT with one addition this time: Mild runs only. I guarantee you'll get something broken, but imo Spicy made it so practically everyone could just run through the game by holding down the 'A' button. To compensate I'll add an extra dime per run. The rest is the same: $1.10 per goon up to 20 for every goon that completes a run from now on to the end (must complete a normal run first) using Can Of Worms's Final Fantasy V Advance Randomizer. Make sure to emptyquote this post on a win so I can see it! Oh, and please don't use the FFV4JF site (probably not cool crowning on impossible runs). It's up to you if you want to spoil the Jobs you get or not but I'd recommend it to reduce grinding and magic level confusion. Also, I'll probably wait until next year to actually donate so I can kill two birds with one stone and water that tree.
Also, make sure you use the clean unpatched Final Fantasy V Advance US ROM (CRC32 7A24AB0C)! You'll get game-breaking errors with the EU version or patched ROMs that change job stuff.
