FFDiscussion
It's been just over 3 years since FFD opened, and it's been a close knit community, one which we've all been able to share our problems together, talk freely and discuss any kind of topic that we wanted, from Final Fantasy to problems with school.

Unfortunately, the decision was made to archive the board while it still had some minimal activity, rather than let spammers come and take over, which I think we will all agree on. Although there was the fair share of drama, people leaving and not much activity, the fact that we managed to keep it going until now is a statement to say that we weren't going to let it go down without trying our best to keep it open.

So after 3 years, 50000 posts and over 1000 topics later, with one of the best and closest communities on the web, FFDiscussion has closed on the 1st December 2010

You got any special strategies you used to kill the most difficult bosses on FF XII? share them here! (unless it`s a secret lol)

Basically, I had no strategies, I`m not a Strategic guy, I just went an all offensive stance lol... I used Niopalahoa + Remedy on all bosses... and I used gambits such as: Party: Poison ---> Poisona and Party: Health <X% ---> Curaga

There is no strategy in Final Fantasy XII because all of the battles are pre-rendered by gambit bullshit. I reccomend playing a game where it's possible to change the way your characters act every few turns without opening a camp menu.

i agree with vince, this game's battle system is shit.

all i did was take turns using mist charges and getting huge chaings and then subbing them out and using another big chain and then ethers to do it all over again. My ff12 battles were nothing more than tests to my hand eye coordination.

Lol I had some kind of problem with mist abilities, I was TOO bad on chaining mist abilities lol, so I had to invent some strategy to kill the bosses, Niopalahoa for example...

Ah, thank the basketball gods for bestowing upon me uncanny hand eye coordination. I would have thrown the game away if i had to use strategy lol.

not challenges that are annoying. like.... in pokemon at the safari zone where you throw food and they just run away. damn chansey after you look for it for 30 damn minutes had to pay 6000 to get in all those times. difference between challenging and aggrivating to me lol.

they should have made it to where, if you attack in the back you get more damage or something to make moving worthwhile.

shields don't do shit, it's just a percentage thing. still doesn't have anything to do with mobility.

Still, it's a percentage, hence making that percentage part of evading physical attacks.

it still has nothing to do with my criticism of not allowing mobility to factor into the equation.

i was referring to the amount of damage you do for hitting certain spots on a monster, like from behind.

That would be pretty cool too. I don't know, i guess if movement isn't a factor in either, game may as well be back to turn based.

because it's a thinking man's game then, not a plan for the same tactics to be played out fight after fight game.
