Free Potions

You can get free Potions in Timber Town. Get Rinoa in the party, then go to the bridge where you saw the guards. Keep returning until a man appears. Talk to him, then talk to him a second time to receive a Potion. Leave the screen and return until he appears again and repeat.

Easy Ability Points

Go to Cactaur Island and earn 20 AP for each Cactaur that is defeated in battle. Cactaur Island is the small island covered by a desert.

Guardian Force locations
    Quezacotl, Shiva

    Squall's desk computer.

    Ifrit

    Defeat Ifrit.

    Siren

    Draw from Monster after fighting Biggs and Wedge.

    Brothers

    Defeat Sacred and Minotaur in Tomb Of The Unknown King.

    Diablos

    Before going to Timber, talk to headmaster Cid until you get the Magic Lamp. Save the game, use the lamp, and defeat Diablos. Draw and store Demi then cast it. Do not draw and immediately cast, as he will not cast Curaga on your character.

    Carbuncle

    Draw from Statues attacking Rinoa at end of Disc 1.

    Leviathan

    Draw from NORG after destroying his pod.

    Pandemona

    Draw from Fuijin in the battle with Fuijin and Raijin.

    Cerberus

    Draw from Cerberus during the Galbadia Garden invasion. He is at the center glowing circle near the entrance.

    Bahamut

    Go to the island in lower left corner of the map. Walk only when light is not flashing. Go straight until the message "you have perceived the resonance" appears. Go to opening at flashing object, fight Ruby Dragon (you have no choice). If you are in bad shape, answer "Yeah, there's nothing we can do". If not, answer "Never". With luck, Ruby Dragon will not use its Breath attack, as your characters will die. When you win, select "Cancel", then "Accept". Watch out for Bahamut's Mega Flare.

    Tonberry

    Defeat Odin. Then fight 20 Tonberrys at top of elevator or open place, not at torch lit place at its base. You will fight the Tonberry King.

    Cactuar

    Use Ragnarok to fly to the island on the outside of a desert; you will see a cactus teleporting around. Walk up to it. Be careful, as its 10,000 needles do 100,000 damage.

    Doom Train

    Get the Solomon Ring from the Esthar Sorceress Memorial at end of Disc 3. Laguna will have talked about defeating Ultimicia. You need six steel pipes and other items. He will appear without a fight.

    Eden

    Draw from Ultima Weapon. Bahamut must have already been defeated. Give one pressure spot all the time you can. If you do not, reset at the first steam pressure spot, put Zell in you party and let him "tinker" with the machine demanding four pressure; you will get away. Since you lose four pressure the first time you reset, it is as if you did not make a mistake (only, a lot of strong monsters will flood the area). Set the Move/Find ability to find the final save spot.

Rare card locations
