Coming soon, from the guy behind the FFV Four Job Fiesta: the FFVI Four Character Challenge!

I'm seriously considering playing, as it's been quite some time since I played FFVI. I'm just not sure I'll be able to fit it in with all the other games I'm playing. Hmm.

Anyone else interested in giving this a try?

I wonder why four, and not three?

The event is now live, if buggy. Gilgabot responded back to my tweet saying the Fiesta is closed (oops) but then sent a second tweet with my party for this challenge. I've got Terra, Cyan, Gau and Strago. Gau could be good! Don't know about Cyan orStrago though. I never really used Cyan so I'm not TOO familiar with his abilities.

I just about managed to finish my run in time last night. I had Sabin, Shadow, Cyan and Umaro and it wasn't actually that bad, I didn't have to over level or anything. Final party equipment, etc:

Sabin (Level 57) (Had him set up to boost his magic so Phantom Rush was doing 9,999 damage everytime.

Enhancer
Genji Shield
Circlet
Genji Armour

Merit Award
Hero's Ring


Shadow (Level 57)

Thief's Knife
Flame Shield
Genji Helm
Black Gard

Ribbon
Gigas Glove


Cyan (Level 53)

Zantetsuken
Aegis Shield
Genji Helm
Genji Armour

Master's Scroll
Gigas Glove


Umaro (Level 55)

Blizzard Orb
Gigas Glove


Cyan was probably my weakest character but he definitely had his uses and certainly wasn't useless. Sabin by the end was just doing 9,999 damage on near enough everything with Phantom Rush. Shadow just abused Fuma Shurikens for 6000+ damage each time. I kept the Berserker Ring on Umaro so he would fairly often do 6000+ damage by throwing another party member at the enemy.

Nice!

I fell behind in playing, and have been trying to finish today. My party is Terra, Cyan, Gau and Strago. I made a potentially crucial mistake: since I've only played the game twice before and the last time was several years ago, I decided to play as much of the WoR as possible. So I entered C yan's Dream and then saved inside it without saving to a new slot. When I reached the triplets, I got stuck because they kept spamming White Wind, and Strago's Bad Breath wasn't sticking to silence them. I could survive the fight no problem, but I couldn't damage them fast enough.

I ended up shutting the game off and trying again. This time I got extremely lucky. I didn't notice the miss message when I did Bad Breath this time, but still wasn't sure if stuck because they were casting fire spells on me. But for whatever reason, the AI never did White Wind this time! So I was able to beat them and finish the dream. Whew.

I'm now trying Kefka's Tower but having issues. Party #1 is Terra and Gau, and they do okay. Party #2 is Strago, who skipped Ultima Buster (I was too intimidated to try him) and beat the Gold Dragon only to lose to a trio of Ahrimans. I've tried a few more times but lost to various monsters along the w ay. Frustrating. I'm taking a break now, and will try again after dinner.
