quote ZombieShamI'm not sure, it's been a few months since I played and didn't get very far. But you'll want an item that nullifies or absorbs thunder damage, not water. Sorry for any confusion.
Are you sure it's the coral ring is the right one? FF wiki says it absorbs water elemental attacks and the dragon attacked me with Thundaga. Maybe he has more than one elemental attack?
quote ZombieShamDo you have all the three coffee types? because if you have you could have just handed them in when you were in Dali when you got the last one during the card game tournament. Other than that your best bet would be the airship like everyone else said.As the title suggests, I'm looking to return to observatory to finish my coffee side quest.
This my first run-through of the game and before I picked it back up again it had been about 2 years - possibly 3 or more - since I had played it (I just couldn't win at the scripted card tournament and it made me drop the entire game). I finished the tournament, killed the optional boss-in-a-book, and continued with the storyline until I was given the Blue Narciss.
I haven't continued on to the Blue Mage city, or to Terra, so the side-quest guide claims I should be able to turn in the three coffees to the man at the observatory and claim my reward.
However, I can't work out how to get access to the area. I can't enter the north gate, there's no waterway for the ship, I don't have an airship and my chocobo doesn't have the mountain or air skills (I've been very unlucky with the chocographs).
How can I get back into that central area of the Mist Continent at this stage of the game? Thank you in anticipation of a response!
quote ZombieShamOnce you have targetted the enemy, before hitting attack if you hit the select button when the cursor is hovering on the enemy then it will show you what you are fighting.Thanks for the tips. I generally really love the battle system in IX, but my single major complaint is that unless you're in Trance you can't see the names of the monsters (unless I'm missing something?), so I don't know if I'm fighting the right monsters.
quote ZombieSham#Great, thanks a lot for that. If I had the mountain/reef abilities for my chocobo I could definitely get to most of the places I want to go right now, but it seems like it would be worth playing ahead and getting the airship.
Like I mentioned, this is my first time playing the game and although I know I won't be able to go back and finish certain sidequests (the coffee and mini-model ones) after a certain point, I wasn't sure how far away those points are.
Just to clarify, the last thing I did story-wise was Burmecia/gaining the Blue Narciss. I haven't yet continued on to the Black Mage Village.
I don't know if I'm decently leveled. I was able to kill that optional boss in Alexandria (Tantarian) without much difficulty, and my current party is Zidane (L32), Vivi (L34), Amarant (L31) and Quina (L25, but s/he has Level Up so she's catching up to the others). I'm certain that's on the very low side of acceptable, because when I went down to the islands in the sea below the Chocobo forest the dragon-type enemy there cast one Thundaga and wiped out my entire party except for one character who was left with 5hp. That was at about level 31/32/29/24.
Any tips as to what level I should be?
