ACTUALLY, DID YOU KNOW IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO LOSE WEIGHT AND BEING GIGANTIC DOESN'T CAUSE ANY HEALTH PROBLEMS? IT'S EITHER THAT OR I'M AN IDIOT!

OMG.

Oh, before I forget, I'm doing the GBA Randomizer again, same as last time:
Mild runs only. $1.10 per goon up to 20 for every goon that completes a run to the end (must complete a standard 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.

Note that Exdeath 0.6+ implements a randomizer for GBA as well, albeit with a modified algorithm that allows you to set innates globally (the QoL ones, anyway). It also refuses to let you use a wrong base ROM.

If you've Fiesta'd a bunch already I recommend giving Waddler's mod a try. I'm about to enter The Void with a Pure Chaos party of Geomancer, Berserker, Thief, Ninja and it's been some of the most fun I've had playing FJF.

I think I'm going to have my Geomancer dual wield the Rune Axe and a Titan's Axe vs NED. Berserker can just two hand the other Titan's Axe.

Definitely using this mod if I get a real poo poo team to help make it bearable and not burn out.

Whats the generally preferred setup/patches/whatever to run with? Theres a LOT of info floating around on this.

Galick

There are three major mods/patches that effect the game noticeably, all available in the Exdeath patcher!

The most basic bitch one is Fiesta mode - this unlocks all jobs, including the advance jobs, from the word go. This is useful and fun to not have to run four freelancers if you're doing a .purechaos run or something and don't unlock your job until the earth crystal!

The next mod is the wormsofcan rebalance - it changes things hugely, involving a lot of scripting and rebalances classes pretty heavily. Here's the post sharing it, and here's the mod itself! The readme goes over it better than I ever could.

Another one is the wormsofcan randomizer, also available in the Exdeath patcher! This, well, randomizes things! Specifically jobs and abilities. It comes in mild and extra spicy versions, the mild changes things on a per job basis so you could have a White Mage who has !Rapidfire as their base ability and gains !Call and Equip Axes among other things as they level. Extra spicy randomizes each job per character - what Butz is as a Knight is not what Krile is as a Knight!

And then there's my rebalance, which mostly aims to buff up underperforming jobs and giving some QOL improvements like making Reflect Rings and Staves of Light a guaranteed drop, and making a (nerfed) Thief Knife available as a rare drop from the fleeing Garula! You can find the current readme for it here! which includes patch notes and version differences!


E: Worth noting that Exdeath also includes things like the sound restoration patch, FFT style portraits for the cast, randomized Neo Exdeath sprites including the classic Cactuar, and multiple xp/abp/and gil multipliers you can apply from 1* to 8*, and innate passives like Learning, Dash, Find Pits, and Light Step!
E2: There's also the custom classes patch by Jeff Ludwig, which I have no personal time with, but by all accounts is amazing - and is also included in the patcher!

That's a tough toxx. Sounds like it'd be fun to figure out though. I'd have to look up more of the game since I'd actually really care about drops instead of the few I have memorized. Hopefully my team would be ok without me farming rare dropped Hermes Sandals from Cheries. Definitely farming a bunch of Elixers early on.

Why does Khajiit have to go to prison this time?


We're up to patch 3.3.2 on my rebalance, so I figured I'd post the readme again for anyone who's interested!

Hello there! First of all, thank you for taking the time to read this or even consider playing my rebalance. I really appreciate it! You can feel free to give me critique or suggestions or report any bugs in the FFV Goons Discord server, or message me directly at The Great Waddler#3967 on Discord.

My design goals for this hack are pretty simple: Give the weaker or less interesting jobs more interesting or powerful things to do. In addition to that, I'll be doing my best to fix some old bugs in the game that have been in there forever, ergo the Power Drink not actually increasing your attack and !Mineuchi having the proper paralysis associated with it.

Later on, I'll be releasing a secondary hack alongside this one that fine tunes bosses to be more fun and engaging, but this will always be an optional opt-into hack released in addition to the class rebalance. It will not be pure numbers go up, and in fact, it will include some things like tanking Omega's Evade so that non-!Rapidfire or Stoplock means of hurting it exist.

Here are the general changes from the base game to the hack!

#Class Specific Changes


#Monk
- Attributes: Monk's base magic stat is now 30 (previously 1)

- Skills: Red Mage's primary command is now !Dualcast, instead of !Red. Later, they will have three empty slots with !Dualcast taking place of !Attack but this is unfeasible for the moment.
- Skills: Red Mages now learn !Red level 3 in place of !Red level 1.
- Skills: Red Mages now learn !Focus in place of !Red level 2. This is to facilitate being able to fight rather than being a pure caster.

#Beastmaster
- Attributes: The Beastmaster's base Agility is now 35 (previously 25)

#Monsters

- Drops: The Metamorph now has the Staff of Light in both drop slots.
- Drops: The wild Garula now rarely drops the Thief Knife.
- Drops: The Iron Giant now rarely drops the Gladius.

#General
- Equipment: The Thief Knife has been lowered to 18 base attack power, but is now available in Walse as a rare drop from the fleeing Garula. This is to facilitate early criming for parties that lack a Thief.
- Equipment: Spear's (Steal: Shell Bear) Attack value has increased from 25 -> 49
- Equipment: Javelin's (Steal: Sand Bear) Attack Value has increased from 55 -> 60, and is now a (Common) Steal from Bone Dragons. Sand Bears now have Ethers in place of their previous Steal.

- Equipment: The Blitz Whip now has a 50% chance to cast Thundara (previously Thunder) on hit (previously 33%)
- Equipment: The Gladius is now no longer Holy elemental, and has had its power reduced to 95 (previously 118). It is now a rare drop from Iron Giants.
- Equipment: The Gaia Bell now has a 75% chance to cast Quake (previously 25)



Version Changes:
#3.1:
- Updated Ranger, Summoner, gave Thief and Knight the Cannoneer and Gladiator abilities.
- Rune Axe now grants First Strike.
- Thief Gauntlet now grants Always: Haste.
- Logged a bug where Spears are not two handable. This will be fixed in a later patch.
- Fixed a bug where Berserker was dual wielding rather than two handing.
- Logged a bug where the Moonring Blade was not usable to cast Haste. As a workaround, the Thief Gauntlets now grant Always: Haste but are only equippable by Thieves.

#3.2:
- Geomancer's strength has increased to 35 (previously 28)
- Dragoon now gains Lure in place of Equip Spears. This is intended to leave spears as a niche for Dragoons and Freelancers with their buffs.
- Dancer's vitality has increased to 22 (previously 14). This is to put it on par with mages.
- The Thief Knife's damage has been lowered to a base of 18. To compensate for this, it is now available in world 1 as a rare drop off of the fleeing Garula. The Thief Knife in Mirage is still available, but is similarly weaker.
- All spears but the Dragon Lance and Longinus have had their attack stat increased to lean into the Dragoon niche of hitting as hard as possible, but only once. They are similarly only equippable by Dragoons, Freelancers, and Oracles now. This is an indirect nerf to Gladiator I suppose.
- Longinus is now available earlier than the Sealed Temple, though it has been slightly weakened for this. It is now a rare steal from Stingray in World 3.
- Spears are no longer Throwable.
- Monks now learn !Drink in place of Counter.
- Dragoon's base strength has increased to 48 (previously 42)
- Geomancers can now equip Axes and Hammers.
- Oracles can now equip Spears and Knives.
- The Rune Axe's base attack is now 90 (previously 71).
- The Gaia Hammer now casts Quake 50% of the time (previously 25%)
#Bugs:
- Noted a bug where Berserkers cannot counter attack due to being Berserk. This will be fixed in a later patch.

#3.2.1
#Bugs
- Found a bug where Red Mage was not receiving three empty slots as they should be. Will require more major editing to repair, for now as a workaround, Red Mage has !Attack, !Dualcast, an empty slot, and !Item.

#3.3
#Bugs
- With help from Síle, repaired the bug where classes would not learn magic abilities properly without having the levels prior.
#Updates
- !Combine is now Thief's capstone ability, costing 300 ABP. Their level 5 ability is now !Mug, while level 6 is Artful Dodger.
- Shots of varying sorts have been added as guaranteed drops in select locations in each world. Buckshot is available in World 1, Buck and Blast are available in World 2, and all three are available in World 3. The location/enemy for each is noted in the Thief entry.


#3.3.1
- The White Serpent in the wind shrine now has a chance of dropping a Dagger, and both of its steal slots have Daggers.
- The Gaia Hammer's proc rate is now 50% as it properly should've been.
- Octokrakens can now drop Staffs.
- Page 128 now has the Healing Staff as a rare steal.
- Moldwind, Calcruthl, Undead Husks, Ra Mages, Kuza Beasts, Skull Eaters, Cure Beasts, Magic Dragons, and Level Checkers now have Elixirs as their rare steal in addition to dropping them normally, opening up varying amounts of crime.
#Bugs
- With help from Wormsofcan, unarmed !Spellblade now applies its effects properly.
- When you use the L and R buttons to swap characters in the Abilities screen, their abilities may disappear. This is purely cosmetic and the abilities will return when you close the Abilities screen and return.

#3.3.2
- The Thief Knife's proc rate has been increased to 100% (previously 33%)
- The Rune Chime's attack power has been increased to 70 (previously 45)
- The Blood Sword's accuracy has been boosted to 75% (previously 25%)
- The Blitz Whip now has a 50% chance to cast Thundara (previously Thunder) on hit (previously 33%)
- The Gladius is now no longer Holy elemental, and has had its power reduced to 95 (previously 118). It is now a rare drop from Iron Giants.
- The Dancer now has the Magic Shell ability innately, granting them Shell when reduced to critical HP.
- The Monk's base Magic stat is now 30 (previously 24, previously 1)
- The Gaia Bell now has a 75% chance to cast Quake (previously 25)
- The Fire Lash now has a 50% chancee to cast Firaga (previously 33)
#Bugs
- Thanks to Sile, the abilities disappearing bug has been resolved.

If you can't use inns then your source for Tents in World 1 is Tatou after the graveyard. Or you could steal them from Skull Eaters, but that would depend heavily on which jobs you got and it'd still likely be faster to just fast forward through a bunch of Tatou.

World 2 you want to kill a bunch of Pao right at the start to load up.

World 3 would be Tatou again.
