Best Combination 

One of the best combinations of characters in the game also needs 
good skills and equipment. Your main team should always have: Ramza, 
Orlandu, Agrias, Beowulf, and Mustadio.

For Ramza, make him master the monk class, then turn him into a 
lancer and master that class, too.

For Orlandu, you can try making him a monk. just make him have 
the 'equip sword' ability. He can kickass with his monk abilities, 
even better than Ramza. Make Orlandu learn all of these skills 
and then turn him back into a holy swordsman. use the monk 
skills as a secondary skill.

For Agrias, fo the same thing you did for Orlandu,except that 
her monk skills aren't as strong as everybody else.

For Beowulf, make him learn all of his temple knight skills and 
then turn him into a samurai. Learn all of the skills, and then 
turn him back to the temple knight. The skills should be useful, 
especially the 'kiyomori' sword skill.

For Mustadio, do the same thing you did with Ramza. At the start 
of the game, though, you might want him to learn all of the snipe 
skills and then become a master chemist. this is a good combo 
for early stages.

Note: When using Orlandu, Agrias, and Beowulf, make sure you 
duplicate the Excalibur sword and give one to each of them. It 
will give them the ability to go first plus hurt more with their attacks. 

Chicken Trick 

For this you'll need either a mediator or an oracle. A mediator is best.
First learn any skill that lowers brave points. Then all you have to do 
is lower someone's brave points below 10. They'll turn into a chicken. 
They can't attack,they just run away.

NOTE: They gain 1 brave point every turn, so keep it under 10 or 
they'll turn back. 

Deep Dungeon "Lights On" Trick 

If you have been to the Deep Dungeon in chapter 4, you will notice 
there are no lights. In order to turn them on follow this procedure: 

1. Destroy all but one enemy and keep him n stop or sleep. 
2. Keep choosing "Wait" for all of your team 
3. Pretty soon, the defeated enemies will turn into crystals 
and will light up the room. 

Defeat Velius 

To defeat Velius, bring along at least one summoner that knows 
Lich, a chemist with a Mythril Gun, and anyone with a strong 
attack (like a knight or a ninja.)

First, move within four spaces of Velius and use wave fist. 
Then you should get another turn. Use wave fist again and then 
jump across the water on the right.

I think Velius gets his turn next and he'll use Cyclops. While he's 
charging, move your guys away from the target. If he targeted 
a certain person, attack him directly with that person. Hopefully, 
you'll have a summoner left. Cast Lich (It'll hit him for around 
500, and he has 1000hp)

By now he should be almost dead. Just use anything you can to 
finish him off 

Defeat Wiegraff 

To defeat Wiegraff at Riovanes Castle, become a monk and learn 
WAVE FIST, CHAKRA and MOVE-HP UP. A Bracer will help as well.

Start out by getting as close to him as you can. Then use wave fist. 
He will then use Lightning Stab and run away. DON'T FOLLOW HIM.
Run back to where you started and use chakra. He will then move 
to where he started. Now repeat all this until he's dead. 

Defeating Balk 

Balk is a difficult enemy to beat. At first glance, this battle in Murond 
Death City looks fairly simple: Balk is standing in the midst of four 
monsters (one of each of the following: Behemoth, Hyudra, Hydra, 
and Tiamat). You find out pretty quickly that this battle isn't going 
to be one of the easy ones.

Here's my take on how to beat Balk and his crew of  beasts.

First, use the sword duping trick to make a number of 
"Excalibur" and "Save the Queen". 

Change Ramza's job to Knight if you don't have him there already, 
and equip both the swords stated above (must have the Two Swords 
ability from the Ninja job class [900 JP]). This will automatically 
put him in [Haste] and [Protect].

Have whatever ability you want for your secondary action ability. 
Use Blade Grasp for your Reaction ability, Two Swords for 
Support ability, and Move-HP UP for Movement.

NOTE: This combination of abilities and items works well with 
ANY character, but you may not have spent enough time with 
everyone, having Ramza the only one capable.

For the rest of my team, I included Mustadio as an Engineer 
(with Mythril Gun), Orlandu as Holy Swordsman (with Excalibur 
and Save the Queen if possible), Agrias as Holy Knight, and a Ninja.

Equip the best armor you have (Reflect Armor works OK here). The 
Defense Armlet is the best accessory to have (so Balk can't use 
his Snipe skills on you), but Rubber Shoes (accessory) are useful 
when Balk tries to shoot you with his Lightning-aligned Blast Gun. 
Use whichever is handy, but equip the Defense Armlet(s) on your 
best character(s).

Use Mustadio's "Snipe" ability on the monsters to paralyze them. 
Pick each one off in turn with Ramza and the Ninja going up close 
with Two Swords, while Agrias and Orlandu get them with 
Lightning Stab (or the best skill you have).

Note: You can just attack the Behemoth until its health is "Critical". 
It'll leave you alone. The three other monsters can hit you with 
their firey breath (and from fairly far away), so make sure you 
kill them off completely.

You can't paralyze Balk, so you have to concentrate on surrounding 
him. He runs away easily and can hit you with his Blast Gun, so go 
after him quickly (once you've eliminated the monsters). Try to 
break his Blast Gun first with Orlandu's Hellcry Punch. After that, 
he's easy to defeat with ANY ally. Good luck! 

Duplicate Weapons 

Set the Ninja "Two Swords" skill on anyone. Equip a shield in their right 
hand, and the item you want duplicated in their left. Nnow go to a shop 
that sells the items you want duplicated, choose "BEST FIT" and buy 
them. Next, go to the formation screen and remove the items. You 
should now have two of the item you had in the left hand.

For example, to duplicate Excaliber, go to Lionel castle's shop. You'll 
get a second Excalibur for only 10 gold! 

Easy Level Gain and Job Points 

Before you can do this you'll need to learn ACCUMULATE and (if 
possible) the JP-UP skill. You also need at least one monk with 
the CHAKRA skill for this to work.

Walk across any green dot until you are attacked, then kill all 
but one enemy. Next, find five squares that form an + and are 
on the same height level. Have the monk stand in the center 
with all other characters in the adjacent squares. Use accumalte 
over and over and when your attacked just use chakra to gain 
back your health. Repeat as desired. 

Equipment Tip 

When fighting battles against other humans, be sure to check their 
equipment. Sometimes they have items not available in stores. Use 
a mediator to invite them into your party and strip them after the 
battle, or use a thief to steal their belongings. 

Gain 5 or more Levels in One Fight 

You know how you get exp with one hit? What if your character is 
so strong, it kills with one hit. What if you can hit someone over 
20 times without your guidence and safely return home. What you 
need is a wizard, and an oracle or mediator.

What you do is you turn your enemies into frogs. It is time consuming, 
but it is worth it. (You can increase chances by using oracle "pray faith." 
Once that is done. and I know this sounds weird, turn your strong 
character into a frog. Then with oracle or mediator, put him into 
berserk. This will allow him to fight on auto-battle without running 
away. Keep your character well healed.

Move the rest of your characters far away from the fight. Frogs 
VS Frogs. Put them on auto battle in "Run like a rabbit" mode so 
they don't interfere. They shouldn't interfere.

Leave it on over night. By morning that character will rise 5-10 
levels, and have over 2000-5000 jp points. 

Get Cloud 

This tip must be done during Chapter Four. Not that you should have 
about six empty spaces in your formation screen before attempting this.

Go to Zeltennia Castle and listen to the rumor called "Cursed Island" Buy 
a flower from Aeris at Zarghidas Trade City then go to Goug machine 
city with Mustadio. The screen will fade and go to a scene of Mustadio, 
Ramza and a steel ball. Go to the bar in Goland Coal City and listen to 
the rumor of the "Ghost of Colliery" After this, go to Lesalia Imperia 
and the screen should shown a scene of a bar. When you leave, invite 
Beowulf to join your party. Now that you have Beowulf, go to Goland 
Coal City and you will fight 4 battles here and save Reis. After you 
save Reis you will get a Zodiac Stone that will trigger the steel ball. 
Return to Goug Machine City again and add the Robot to your party. 
Now that you have the robot, go to Nelveska Temple. You will fight
another robot kill him and you will recieve a stone that will bring Cloud 
to your world. Now go back to Goug Machine City and you will trigger 
the time portal machine and it will suck Cloud from the future bringing 
him to your world. Now go to Zarghidas Trade City and save Cloud 
from the thieves that are punking Aeris. 

Note: if this part didn't work make sure that you killed Dycerag and 
his Zodiac Soul Adramelk. When Cloud joins your party all he can do is 
defend and attack. You'll need to find his Materia Blade so that he can 
use all of his limit attacks from Final Fantasy VII. The Materia Blade is 
located in the Bervania Volcano. Set your party's on Move-Find Item 
Then go to the highest tall rock and go to the top of it. 

How to get the Chaos Blade 

On level nine of the Deep Dungeon you should fight a team of ninjas. 
Ready your CATCH ability.If you're lucky, one of the ninjas will throw 
a Chaos Blade at you. If you catch it you get to keep it! 

Immortal Female 

To have a female that cannot turn into a crystal or treasure box, 
you must have the Chantage perfume (stolen from Meliadoul in 
Chapter 4) and a character skilled as a ninja, or have a Vanish 
Mantle as an accessory.

Put the Chantage perfume on any female character, and make 
sure the Ninja has the reaction skill of Sunken State (or equip 
him/her with the Vanish Mantle)

Go into battle, and hit the Ninja until he uses Sunken State (unless 
he has a Vanish Mantle) then make your Ninja run away after it is 
transparent (not acting!)

You will notice that your female character, after dying will be 
revived as soon as her AT reaches 100. This will happen every 
time she dies! It is better to have someone like Agrias use this technique! 

Instantly Kill Undead 

To instantly kill an undead (ghouls, skeletons, etc), simply throw 
them a Phoenix Down. You will never miss and they'll die instantly!

Warning: When you kill undead this way a timer will appear. If you 
don't finish the game before the timer reaches 0 the undead will rise again. 

Mime Job 

The requirement for the job mime is level 8 item user, level 8 beginner 
knight, level 5 summoner, level 5 talker, level 5 Fu-sui-shi (Element 
user) and level 5 dragon knight. 

More Powerful Ramza 

For a more powerful Ramza, have him master the squire class then 
switch him to the ninja class and have him master that too. Then 
return him to the squire class and equip him with the two swords ability. 
Because of his special squire abilities he can wear heavy armor and 
helmets. Because of his natural H.P bonus in the squire class his max H.P 
should go up almost 100 H.P! This tip works best in late ch.3 to ch.4.

NOTE: When you get T.G Cid at the end of the 3rd. chapter, duplicate 
his excalibur and put one in each of Ramza's hands. If he is at a good 
level and has a high attack power, he can attack for 350+ points of 
damage each hit! 

Raise Bravery Permanently 

When you reach chapter two, purchase the Square ability CHEER UP 
for Ramza. Once you've acquired it, go into battle and use it on 
everyone on your team. It will temporarily raise their BRAVE by 5 
points, and provide a permanent 1-point increase.

You can get your Brave up to 97. This works great if you have the 
Blade Grasp skill because the enemies will only have a three 
percent chance of hitting you! 

Ultimate Summon 

After beating the battle in the holy land of Myurond, go to the 
seaport Wo-jirius. Following an short event you can go into Dieve 
dungeon, and from the tenth floor of the basement you will be able 
to learn the ultimate summon (equivalent to Knights of the Round from FFVII.) 

Weigraf and Velius: Two Birds with One Stone! 

When you encounter Weigraf for the last time(just before he 
becomes Velius) you cankill him easily by following these instructions:

Make sure Ramza is a Squire with two sword ability or a Ninja with 
HP Restore and the support skill Guts equipped.

When you start the battle it's just you (Ramza) and Weigraff. 
Don't attack him, instead keep away from him and use Yell and 
Accumilate repeatedly when it's your turn.

Eventualy this will raise your speed and level high enough that 
you don't have to worry about his Lightning Stab or Earth Slash attack.

When you are getting 3 to 4 consecutive turns in a row (Check the 
AT list) wait until the beginning of the next cycle then attack. Your 
two-sword ability should kill Weigraff in one turn and Velius will be 
dispatched before anyone else even gets a turn.

This should make what was the hardest battle in the game quite simple.
