Congrats!

I'm on my least favorite part of the game: farming Reflect Rings. Ugh.

In Barrier Tower, where you fight Atomos. You can farm Reflect Rings from the Reflect Knights there. It can take a while to farm them, as they don't seem to drop that often, though I was lucky enough to get two almost back-to-back the other day. Two more to go. The rings are useful in the fight against the Crystals in the Forest of Moore, and also used in Omniscient's tower.

Well I just beat Omega with a lvl 58 party.

The berserkers did their lame damage - anywhere from 500- 3500, while I had Thief+!sing ability, and the bard just yelling out romeo's ballad.
Somehow I managed to time it well enough that Omega didn't fire a single shot. Getting the pre-emptive strike probably helped!

I tried to record it but had the window stretched so OBS didn't pick it up =[. I also forgot to take a screencap. You'll just have to believe me...
The recording would've been boring as all hell, anyway.

The Fiesta has come and gone once again. I was very motivated this year and ended up completing 10 runs, because I'm a crazy monster. And what did I do immediately after? Start a regular game of FF5. It's really weird to have the entirety of the game in front of you, rather than just a select bit of jobs.

In the night there is something wild
I feel it, it's leaving me

There's a speedrun challenge going on for October. Sounds like fun! I have no way to videotape myself, though, so I won't be officially entering. I might give it a try anyway, as the job restrictions sound like fun. I really need to finish Final Fantasy XII first, though.

And I also need to finish this year's Fiesta runs. I have one at the final boss, so that shouldn't take too long to finish. I left my chaos run farming reflect rings, as I got bored with the farming. Two rings down, two to go.

Is this still happening this year? I've been playing a casual four job fiesta recently with Black mage, berserker, ninja, and chemist, and it's a lot of fun. Also, this marks my first post on the forums biggrin.gif

Yep, just under two months until signups start again in June.

This is the thing that always kept me from playing FF5, personally. Having too much choice made me always default to 'safe" choices--White Mage/ Black Mage/ Knight/Thief usually--and I would get bored. Something about the game forcing me out of my comfort zone and making me experiment with classes I'd never touched before made it really fun. Also Hiding in the bushes from a wizard for 4 hours while I waited for him to run out of MP. That happened. And for some reason, to me, that's a plus.

I signed up with #regPopular! Looking forward to this. I'm tempted to spend my Christmas money on the Android version of the game so I can play on my Kindle and take easy screenshots. If not, I'm going to play the GBA version as I prefer that translation.

I came in late to the registration, but I'm in world two with Samurai, Summoner, Samurai, Knight.

Chaos is cool.

Also, because I'm me, I like to play the Custom Classes version, so Samurai means X-Fight.

I've been updating my progress at my journal and also on Twitter. I need to write a post for the past few days, though. I'm in World 3 with a Popular run of White Mage, Bard, Mystic Knight and Dragoon. Beat Omniscient last night, though it took a few tries. With this team I should have no problem with Omega and Shinryu.

Just got to the fire crystal and I've unlocked Dragoon, Monk and Mime so far. So I'll be sticking with 4 Monks for a bit longer then!

Registration for this year's Fiesta is now open! I plan on doing just one run this year, as I have a ton of knitting i need to get done by August. I registered a 750 run, as I've never done one before.

Anyone else planning on taking part this year?

I've gone with a forbidden run with fifth job and berserker risk. I have no idea what a forbidden run is though. thumbup.gif

Was anybody watching THE RUN? Something weird happened during the Neo Exdeath fight--Meteo hit himself and healed him for double digits. How is that even possible?!?!?

The Fiesta has officially started! Cefca, I'm intrigued by the forbidden command, now that more info about it has been released. Makes me wish I had been brave and registered for it.

I had White Mage for my Wind Crystal job and it wasn't too bad. I did grind in the Wind Shrine until level 11, when everyone had ~220 HP. I had no issues with Karlabos, and Siren was easy. Kept Magissa silenced and put Protect up, and again, no problems. I did lose Galuf and Faris on the Garula fight but I won on my first try.

The only issue I had was how SLOW it was to kill everything, so I feel your pain there.

I got Red Mage as my water job. I got lucky in the ship graveyard and got enough daggers to equip, so I'm enjoying my new fast killing. Trying to decide if I want to farm gil to stick up on rods or just forge ahead.

Yea, naw I'm not worried about it being difficult. It's just so sloooowwwwww. I went for random for exactly this reason. I knew deep down in my kokoroheart that I was going to get White Mage and I wanted a second shot at Black Mage or Thief. Knowing my luck i'll get 3x Zerkers

How's everyone's Fiesta going?

My final party ended up being White Mage, Red Mage, Bard and Dancer. I think I have a shot at the triple crown with this team! Things are going well, if slow. I spent the last week grinding in Castle Bal's basement so I could get Dualcast. Now I'm farming Reflect Rings in Barrier Tower...possibly my least favorite aspect of the game.

I'm doing a regular playthrough of FFV right now and the final dungeon is so freaking difficult I applaud anyone doing this sort of Fiesta. I don't know how you guys survive it lol
