Now you know how I don't like to use the sit-down gun, but this morning we just don't have time for mucking about.

Same as last year. Use all twenty regular jobs and I'll donate $20 plus your job fair expenses (up to the total price of one of each regular job). Any kind of run is fine except for #fifthjob or some other mode that has you using more than four jobs in a single playthrough.

If you're going to do this, I suggest that you plan ahead a bit. This is going to take at least five runs, and you don't want the last one to be something like Monk/Berserker/Geomancer/Dragoon. There is no requirement to do this in exactly five runs, but more than that is a lot of FFV.

$5 for zerk, monk, and tim.

It's 3 emblems, a yellow star, an orange heart, an orange gear, purple horseshoes, pots of gold and rainbows, and a red balloon! Actually they're all supposed to be gold and I'm not sure where they originated. You can see them on the stat section of the Players page and just like the star on your page they link to your applicable victory images/videos. Maybe send RK a tweet?

Run 1: Samurai, Berserker, Beastmaster, Berserker



Anything interesting?: Believe it or not this might've been my easiest/fastest ever 100% non-fleeing (or close, I think I accidentally did it for useless Lightning Dragons) runs ever. Iainuki just eats random encounters and things it didn't insta-death were often paralyzed by whips (which is becoming one of my favorite weapon types) or crits. The inherited Agility of Whips was nice as well. Oh, and the different damage formula means Dragon Whisker misses less (so does Beast Killer). One of those runs where Byblos (or was it Liquid Flame?) is the hardest boss in the game.

The only weapon type that has any modification of hit or evasion is Knives, which halve target evasion.

Not Bows Strong vs. Creature? Besides that it has 10% more for Hit% than regular whips (wow!).

Run 2: Bard, Black Mage, Dragoon, Ranger



Anything interesting?: Not really, I mostly leaned on Black Magic and Bard buffs. I got Rapid Fire but it wasn't worth it without good weapons.
(I just checked my old save and I had 1 attack on Chicken Knife. Whoops!)

Thought about it and I think the Great Sea Trench would be better. Seems more useless if you don't have a time mage or geomancer to make it less annoying. Monk is ok because they need help.

Anything interesting?: This was my single Blue Mage Goblin Punching Omega after an extremely rare Dark Spark at an exact level run, so yeah. On top of that I Goblin Punched (mostly level manipulation crit-ing) most of the bosses after I remembered that existed. Mystic Knight and Red Mage helped that because they have status effects they can do that Blue Mage alone cannot plus a Libra and more accurate sword Osmoses. It's also hilarious when some of these bosses have their MP drained away. My favorite run... ever!

Used Project Demi's reward booster to get into the low 60s in the hopes of getting a triple crown, but honestly wasn't feeling up to it this year. Plus there's an FGO event starting tomorrow and an FFXIV patch hitting next week so those will eat up a ton of time, so I knocked out the Void in a night.

You can triple crown this way lower than level 60. You can calm lock Omega with beastmaster and berserk Shinryu with the wonder rod.

Anything interesting?: Here's something you might not think about but Monk and Time Mage actually have synergy because w/o Hermes Sandals you can equip Kaiser Knuckles. Absolute powerhouses that way at mid/high level, although boy was my defense lacking. I was hoping for the ol' Monk/Dancer combo but this was neat to see. Oh, Geomancer's wind and related attacks work pretty well getting through World 3 dungeons most of the time but boy do I still hate that class because it sure lets you down when you need... anything.

Why does Khajiit have to go to prison this time?


Sixth run down. White Mage, Red Mage, Dragoon, Samurai. The entire end of the game was just Dualcasting Holy while using !Ianuki for random encounters. Shinryu took forever because I had to stab it to death, but I just chucked money at NED. Not a bad run! Didn't see an easy way to deal with Omega without absurd grinding and I had Dualcast on everyone so I was done with grinding.

Gilgabot gave me another run with Red (for the fourth time), Mystic Knight (for the second), Samurai (for the second), and Ninja (for the second). I just donated $12 to reroll all four so I can hopefully hit the all jobs toxx without donating to get more than one job at a time. I am utterly done with Red Mage, god loving drat.

Pure Chaos can be a little overwhelming for a first run depending on your luck, but it's certainly possible. Random would have been kinder on you as far as learning jobs - you'll always have access to the jobs you roll, as opposed to rolling a job from three crystals further than you are or, god forbid, Mime - but you should be fine as long as you ask here or on the Discord if you need help.

Being on the Vita means you're technically playing the PSX version (though hopefully with better load times) so enjoy your Y Burns and your Ultrapirate Faris, Yarr.

Thatís already a solid start, at least. Youíll have to stay jobless until the water crystal (thatís where Time Mage is if youíre playing unmodded/without cheats) but as long as you roll something that can do damage with that crystal youíre set for the game.

A friend of mine had a regular run going and got white mage into time mage, which I'm pretty sure is the slowest start possible for that run type. At least he had flails?
