So uhhh…last week I kind of forgot. I thought about posting on Saturday, but then it wouldn’t be Final Fantasy Friday would it? This week I started off by getting hopeless lost in the ocean again. I don’t know why that keeps happening, but it led to a really important discovery….
I finally got irritated enough to google a Final Fantasy I world map, lo and behold if you press Start + O you can bring up a map. Nice, being as I tried every single button by itself. Thanks to this new discovery I was able to get back on track.
So after healing, and shopping at Elfheim I started questioning when, and how I upgraded my classes. Obviously I could because they sell magic for classes that I don’t have, and couldn’t have started with. What is up with that? By utilizing my new map, and my ship I sailed West to a small dock near Crescent Lake. The town was mostly surrounded by a lake shaped like, you guessed it…a crescent moon!
I was really excited to get here, because I thought maybe someone would help me change classes. No such luck. I did find some decent training with monsters in this area, but no new classes. I really wanted a Warp 2 spell, but nope can’t use it. I couldn’t even use Warp 1. Sigh. I milled about here for a while, before picking up my Canoe from a council of dwarvish looking fellows near the edge of town. I was told here that I could take the river to Mt. Gulg. Well like everything I do, I did this backwards, almost entirely.
I did not find Mt. Gulg, but instead an Ice Cavern. Now that doesn’t seem right. I guess no hurt in exploring, and training a bit more. So I painstakingly grinded my way through this cavern. In one basement 3 area I ran into my Levistone surrounded by cracked floor. I wonder what happens if I walk through…..wuuuaaaaaghhhh. I fall to the next floor. Lovely.
After circling back around a couple of times I managed to snag the stone. I had to fight an evil eye to get it. He was a pushover. After trudging my way back out of the Ice Cavern I went back to Crescent Lake to resupply. I was ready for Mt. Gulg. I was sure of it now, but wait what is this? Whilst wondering the southern portion of this continent I happened upon my airship buried in the desert. Holy crap! About time I did something right, and by right I mean hopelessly wrong.
Man did I screw this one up! Now with a new airship to tinker with I happily forgot about Mt. Gulg, and went off looking for class enhancements. What I found was the town of Onlak, where I ran into a few interesting things. First Koppe saw something fly off to the west. Next a little girl’s daddy has a caravan in the northeast corner of the desert, near some trees. Ok, they wouldn’t be telling me that for no reason. Third- Dr. Unne is looking for the Rosetta Stone so he can understand Lufenian….Wait! is that a joke? Silly game. I also learn that the shrunken shrine has a large stone slab in it, and that I can’t go down there without Oxyale, whatever that is. Still no classes.
I am not going to lie, at this point I looked up a faq, and tried to figure out why I couldn’t get my classes upgraded. Now that is an entirely different story.
