Post 07: The End

Why Sonic, why?

At this phase of the game you MUST grind, or else you'll die a horrible death in the eastern area.

Not that there's anything wrong with grinding...

...other than it gets tedious...

...and boring...

...but at least we're going to be stinkin' rich from all of the money we're getting, right?

Speaking of money, how about we spend some?

Up until this point I was playing the game with... no armour. And was still doing fine. I buy some Dragon Armour though since it's the best thing I can find.

I pick up the Javelin since it has good stats too.

...and then proceed into the eastern area, where I murder pretty much everything.

Scholar statue.

Gramis is the name of a Final Fantasy XII character according to the Final Fantasy wiki.

Down the hole is one of these rebel jerks. They can swing a flail at you or just bump into you. The flail hurts more though.

...but he does down in about four hits.

Rewarding us with this!

As far as I remember, it isn't the best weapon for the Dragoon, but it does double the Javelin so heck yeah we're using it.

With it we can now kill anything in this area in one to two hits.

Garland is... well, Garland. He's in multiple Final Fantasy games, notably the first one.

From what I can gather, this is a guy from Lord of the Rings. Talking to the guy next to him further validates this claim.

Also pay attention to that guy next to him.

When I talk to him from this direction... he uh, yeah.

But if I talk to him from this direction... I don't even.

Harpies! These things give the most experience out of any enemy in the game.

Mount Gulug is featured in Final Fantasy I as well as IX. Going up here means you're pretty much fighting the final boss. Before we do that...

...we grind a wee bit more. Everything here dies in two hits now thanks to our Holy Lance.

Black Mage statue.

It is possible to get up there, by the way. If you save at the statue and load your game, the airship will appear on the ledge. Then you can just use it to climb up there. There's... nothing up there though so there's not really a point. Also abusing the word "there".

Waiting for you in this room is... this guy.

Betrayed by one of our own judges, how could th- okay no.

After giving his one-liner he turns into that thing. It's... kind of a silly form really. He's a blob.

He has three attacks. He can summon more rebel soldier things or whatever those are, he can fling poisonous projectiles at you, and he can bump into you.

The rebels are easy to kill to say the least, dying in two hits like everything else.

The boss himself goes down in... about six or seven hits. Dying, he gives you a massive amount of money. I have no idea why, because when he dies the game cuts to the ending scene.

Having defeated the traitorous fiend, the king rides off on a Chocobo.

Yes, that was the whole game. Even with the unpassable pillar, that's... everything. All in all, a short but fun time-waster with tons of unnecessary cameos. The end!
