I didn't see this on the web, so I made a list of the most important Missions that you want to play, and what you need from them. Missions are numbered by three numbers: First number is the category that contains the mission, second digit is the subcategory, and the last digit it to identify which exact mission it is.
RED = important items for new players BLUE = shops PURPLE = characters you can add to the DMW slots. ORANGE= Punch-type materia. You need ONE to make the very deadly Costly Punch materia. GREEN = The best items in the game GRAY = A pretty good item

COSTLY PUNCH To make a costly punch, you will need to fuse two things: a DMW materia and a punch-type materia.
A DMW materia is first available in chapter 4 when you can do the Treasure Princess missions. You get a DMW materia after completing Mission 9-4-3. Although the Bone Village (Mission 7-5-3) is MUCH easier to reach once you hit chapter 5. However if you wait til chapter 10, you can easily buy one from the Research Dept. QMC+ shop.
But to get a punch-type materia requires to finish ALOT of missions. Each punch-type materia is deep inside a campaign of missions. But you should get one before you get a DMW materia unless you decided to wait till chapter 10.
THE BEST ITEMS
Genji Shield Barrier, Magic Barrier, Absorbs all elements, Nulls all statuses except Absolute Stop. Get from Magic Pot in Mission 7-6-6. Use Gil Toss, Costly Punch, 99999 Damage, and Sephiroth DMW. Advice: You must add Magic Pot to DMW before getting a Genji Shield. Charge DMW to heavenly or higher before mission. You can use curse (curse ring) to freeze a high DMW charge. (remember to un-curse yourself)

Jul 15, 09 at 2:10am
I want to know when is the best points to do a ton of missions in each chapter.
Jul 08, 09 at 1:00am
*Bump. Bringing this up so a xXxZackxXx can see it...
May 11, 09 at 6:19pm
Nope the spies are scattered around. Search and you shall find. Each one comes with a clue then you have to talk to the person 3 times... The 6 people that open missions are randomly put throughout midgar also.
May 11, 09 at 11:15am
Ah, sweet thanks
I take it that they're all located within the Shinra building since that would be logical. I guess I'll find out soon enough anyway.
May 10, 09 at 11:45pm
I thought I replied to this.. My apologizes..
Yes you must do the six spies to get missions 4-3-1 to 4-3-6.. You also must talk to six of the people in Midgar to get 6 more missions. All of these must be done if you want all the missions before leaving midgar for nibelheim...
Hope that helps..
May 10, 09 at 11:19pm
Um... sorry about bumping after a few months, but it is a relevent question; are the 6 Wutai Spies actually needed to unlock those missions? I read the thread to see if someone had asked for their locations, since that's what I was originally going to do, but if they aren't needed then how are they unlocked (I doubt it's beating the 5 Saints since I did that a while ago)?
