2019-06-17 17:50:44 Pretty good luck with initial elixir gathering at the Wind Shrine. Moving onto Ship Graveyard. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-17 19:05:31 Time to bring knives to a fire fight. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-18 20:01:54 After running into some payment problems with PayPal and Tiltify (which @CPCharity uses for events now) I'm switching to White Mage and Berserker for my Wind and Water jobs. I have a new save file ready to go from the Wind Shrine. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-18 20:32:38 It has been a long time since I used four white mages against Karlabos. That takes awhile, but not much threat with that much healing. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-18 22:15:06 Back to Berserker. Now I get to use the strategy I saw in The Run for Liquid Flame. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-18 23:00:18 Confuse-a-Liquid-Flame doesn't have the same appeal as the strategy to get float, but it works. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-19 01:41:09 Karnak escape is complete. Samurai was the job I was assigned with my attempt at a reroll, before I decided to just pick White Mage in honor of The Run. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-19 02:23:01 Byblos with White Mage and Berserker is going to be a bit of a hurdle. Should still be lower than four berserkers. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-19 04:06:34 Byblos down. Instead of raising my party to level 17 before the Karnak escape to get through Liquid Flame, I did it after to get through Byblos with !White. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-20 04:37:27 Took down Sandworm with a knocked-out berserker and three white mages. The healing staff is basically a fourth character anyway. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-21 02:17:30 Three death sickles and esuna were enough to get through Soul Cannon. An angel ring helped a little, too. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-21 02:46:51 Archeoaevis is down easily. My team is White Mage/Berserker/Samurai/Geomancer. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-21 03:01:29 I'm going to call the combination of silence and !Zeninage against Purobolos "hush money." #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-21 16:08:05 Confuse-a-Cat helped Topple-a-Titan, !White took the bite out of the last meteor boss, time to jump in swirling green energy. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-21 16:11:20 Greetings from Bottomless Bog. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-21 16:29:01 !Mineuchi on a white mage means you can hit confused enemies with a flail and they are just as confused as you are as to how that doesn't remove the status effect. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-21 17:01:54 The bridge is covered, but the party is now in Gloceana, not Madison County. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-21 18:44:09 Forgot to put a death sickle on for Dragon Pod. It didn't matter, I had !Gaia. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-21 19:41:40 Once again, it is time to link boats to standing structures. At least Xexat uses a subterranean cave and explosives, not just ductwork. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-21 21:22:26 !White really helps against Atomos when a berserk with a poison axe is your best damage (when you don't want to use !Zeninage to pay-to-win). #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-24 14:32:16 Didn't wait around for death sickle to take out the guardians, but with !White on three characters I could also keep up with casting reflect. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-24 19:39:56 World 2 done. I hadn't bought many hi-potions, but my supply barely held out along with some elixir use. Probably should have used Shirahidori. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-24 21:13:06 Didn't have a fully powered chicken knife, but it was enough to chip away at Melusine. The katana critical hit chance was probably a larger contributor, though. !Gaia occasionally, too. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-28 18:57:36 Wendigo doesn't say its name in that fun way the one from the X-Men arcade game does. But, it does get cut up by axes and katanas. #FF5FJF2019
2019-06-28 19:42:52 Minotaur got two hits in and knocked out my samurai, but the berserker won. Omniscient became berserk and knocked out my white mage, but the !White and the chicken knife won. I have access to the holy spell, now. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-11 00:57:56 I finally got my Job Fair donations in, I will be able to continue my Popular Jobs run without guilt. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-12 22:16:25 Went into Great Sea Trench and Istory Falls for treasure. Got the Magic Lamp and 1 Mirage Vest. Think I'll be heading into the Interdimensional Rift next time. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-15 19:44:29 Angel rings are a rare steal from Druids in World 3 and my party has access to the thief knife and !White. If I knock out my berserker it might only be a slow drain on my personal in real life sanity meter. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-16 17:10:55 Gave up and bought some angel rings. Calofisteri is down, made it to the save point before Omega (not trying for this run). #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-16 17:33:40 Apanda is still a joke, especially with rune chime boosting !Gaia and enough magic evasion to make drain spells miss. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-16 17:57:29 Whoops. Forgot to put a flame shield on my bone mail wearer while fighting Azulmagia. Flame thrower took out Krile instead of vampire. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-16 18:51:36 Thought I needed to Confuse-A-Cat, but I decided to just try Catastrophe. Earth shaker didn't heal gaia gear wearers, but shell kept the damage down and holy gave me plenty of offense. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-16 19:21:35 Twintania really doesn't like holy, I had reflect rings, two weapons which boosted the element and a knocked out berserker. Twintania dropped the Tinklebell. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-16 20:34:29 The Genji Shield and the Genji Armor are now m-, I mean, oh poor Gilgamesh. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-16 21:48:56 The people who had problems with that Fire Emblem: Three Houses bow are not going to want to look at my victory collages this year. #FF5FJF2019 https://t.co/w3f7X02J6v
2019-07-16 23:33:17 !White remains your best friend against Almagest. I was going to try something silly with Equip Katanas, but I need to see the hair to know if old affected anyone after Grand Cross. Run 1 completed. My 1st Popular. My 1st with Samurai. #FF5FJF2019 https://t.co/zMAkja0buI
2019-07-17 03:33:54 #Run2 1st job of the Advance run is a little ways off, so freelancer until Walse, again. #FF5FJF2019 https://twitter.com/FF5ForFutures/status/1151197565561528321
2019-07-17 12:51:10 #Run2 It's a good thing substance abuse doesn't really come up in Final Fantasy. I refused to use phoenix down after Magissa cast drain, so Faris and Lenna went through most of my potions. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-19 01:05:46 Equip Rods and Dual-Wield for two element boosts at once after Karnak? #FF5FJF2019 https://twitter.com/FF5ForFutures/status/1151885347715997696
2019-07-19 19:49:11 Samurai two runs in a row, now. Still on track for a Brave Blade if I get Gladiator. #FF5FJF2019 https://twitter.com/FF5ForFutures/status/1152168210143350785
2019-07-22 15:07:19 I remembered using water scrolls on Sandworm and thinking you do enough damage the gravity counters don't matter. What doesn't work is using them on a Dhorme Chimera if you encounter one on the walk to Gohn without healing. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-22 18:23:53 #Run2 Haste is pretty powerful. 2 ninjas and 2 time mages were able to take out Cray Claw and Adamantoise without really exploiting the elemental weaknesses. Didn't get slow set on Adamantoise, only the ninjas had !Image so used some phoenix down. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-23 03:04:32 #Run2 Didn't land slow on Soul Cannon, but hasted ninjas with !Time to boost lightning scrolls meant it didn't even get to fire once. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-23 04:04:53 #Run2 No need for Brave Blade now. Ninja with chicken knife it is. Equip Rods for Oracle later. #FF5FJF2019 https://twitter.com/FF5ForFutures/status/1153379949266558977
2019-07-23 15:40:19 #Run2 Purobolos and Manticore were both not heavy, so stop and gravity worked. 1 water scroll for Purobolos was cheaper than !Zeninage. Titan used one Earth Shaker. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-23 18:51:56 #Run2 I would like to point out that you can pause after Bartz does his silly, "Better not let them see me" escaping Exdeath's castle. I did that with Faris in the lead and then she slid toward the door face-down and feet-first. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-27 00:07:27 #Run2 1x Reflect Knight is the first enemy formation encountered on GBA in the Barrier Tower, they drop reflect rings and the !Time spell Comet bypasses reflect status, so I have four reflect rings in less than 80 battles. #FF5FJF2019
2019-07-27 01:15:36 #Run2 Finally remembered to start Atomos with a party member KO'd. Wind Slash katana was too uneven in damage so Comet was the main offense for two characters while another threw boosted lightning scrolls. #ff5fjf2019
2019-07-30 22:14:28 #Run2 !Time ruins the guardians. I threw one scroll. The rest was gravity spells and slashing with haste and slow. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-02 22:07:11 #Run2 I was hoping to get a 6th staff of light before finishing World 2. I got 5 in 65 Metamorph fights, but I have had 65 without a drop. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-05 19:37:50 #Run2 After all the Staff of Light farming, I didn't even need them, since Exdeath didn't even use Meteo. I chipped away with about 800 damage scroll throwing and some comets. Reflect rings were the winner, onto World 3. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-05 20:15:36 #Run2 You can use the book fight before the save point in the Library of the Ancients like a trapped chest in order to rack up runs to increase the power of the chicken knife. I usually leave the one in Tule, but forgot to make use of it. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-05 21:38:37 #Run2 Melusine is vulnerable to stop and the 1st form has a weakness to an element a Time Mage with !Throw can boost (fire rod). Throw scrolls until party member comes back. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-06 17:36:09 #Run2 Oh, how I missed !Time and the ability to leave a dungeon with teleport. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-06 18:17:11 #Run2 Fork Tower completed. Samurai with !Image, decent shields and hermes sandals makes Minotaur so trivial. !Time can damage Omniscient with comet. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-06 18:44:13 #Run2 Old hit Nereid, but ultimately I decided to just use Zantetsuken from the Magic Lamp to get the triplet tablet. I didn't have !Iainuki, yet. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-06 20:03:02 #Run2 With the 4th tablet I have oracle for the first time. Time to get some quick ABP and learn !Predict, but for now !Throw will probably be the main damage. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-06 21:07:57 #Run2 Gogo and Bahamut are down and I now have enough ABP for !Predict. Gogo requires no actions, Bahamut is almost the same if you have access to quickleak. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-06 23:42:08 #Run2 Djibriel's walkthrough states Divine Judgment will restore the MP of allies. Fought Calofisteri, but that didn't happen, it looked like it was healing HP. Ah well, Calofisteri was easy enough. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-07 00:38:57 #Run2 I saw the flash but didn't toggle the fast forward off fast enough to get a screenshot of Omega's breakup after using quickleak, so here's 100 ABP on a background you normally don't receive it (but you do when you fight Omega). #FF5FJF2019 https://t.co/0BYlFt33ht
2019-08-07 00:54:17 #Run2 I left a reflect ring on during Apanda, so I got to confirm that !Condemn's rejuvenation is not affected by reflect status, nor is !Predict's damage. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-07 01:15:35 #Run2 Azulmagia used ??? to hit for 9999 on one character, but then Divine Judgment happened and healed the whole party before that character could be in KO status. Catastrophe was undone by float and reflect rings. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-07 01:26:00 #Run2 !Condemn and !Predict are not greyed out toad status. A frog brought firey doom to Halicarnasus and then predicted another catastrophe, but physical damage and meteors brought it first. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-07 01:42:52 #Run2 Twintania can counter physical attacks made during quick. Scrolls count as physical attacks because of the !Throw command, though they do magic damage. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-07 02:31:32 #Run2 I put ABP Up on a character now that I mastered Oracle through a mover encounter. Then I fought Necrophobe and got the genji armor from Gilgamesh, but no ABP. Made that harder than I needed to. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-07 03:18:34 #Run2 Quickleak against Shinryu after putting on coral rings for a free heal. I thought about using equip katanas to get the first turn with masamune, but decided to just haste the time mage. #FF5FJF2019 https://t.co/k8zLPQEWeF
2019-08-07 04:28:24 #Run2 Complete. Old landed on the almagest piece on the first try. After breaking all the staves I got for holy spells, I realized that throwing weapons would also help. Liberal use of quick to give everyone extra turns. #FF5FJF2019 https://t.co/Z1Y6WDWJxt
2019-08-12 17:41:38 #Run3 Got my red mage, classic jobs are go. Broke a fire rod to help take down Shiva for the free ice rod. Time to head to Karnak. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-12 18:40:32 #Run3 Sergeant can drop silver plate, which I hadn't seen happen before this run through Karnak. 3 confuse and 2 boosted blizzara users made this pretty easy. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-12 19:10:33 #Run3 I tried Byblos at level 11 and wind slash does more damage than my mages' maximum hit points. Time to fight wild nakks. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-12 19:34:57 #Run3 Byblos went much better at level 14. I did land poison, but the increased magic damage multiplier was enough that three fira spells was enough when boosted to end the fight. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-12 20:00:05 #Run3 Walked from the Library of the Ancients to the Desert of Shifting Sands without an encounter which never happens. Sandworm didn't even use quicksand which also never happens unless I have !Blue and aqua breath. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-12 20:25:11 #Run3 Cray Claw and Adamantoise were easy enough, though Adamantoise did knock out my black mage. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-12 20:52:36 #Run3 Soul Cannon did get to fire twice but since I was only level 14 cura and even some cure spells were able to keep HP near maximum. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-12 21:39:03 #Run3 Decided that after Archeoaevis I should level up the party so that solo white mage Galuf can fight Gilgamesh a bit easier. Ghidra surprised with poison breath on the first move, but I bravely ran away, away. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-12 23:17:49 #Run3 Earned enough for two flame rings getting up to level 20. Moving on to the meteor bosses. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-12 23:55:31 #Run3 Confuse-A-Cat for Titan, the flame rings made Manticore easier to heal after frost, and poison, sleep and other spells for Purobolos. Onto World 2. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-13 18:59:23 #Run3 Drakenvale is the point at which I find myself using two tents to fill up MP. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-13 19:40:52 #Run3 Wore the bone mail against Gilgamesh and Enkidu, but vampire kept missing. I do enjoy magic evade when it works for me. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-24 00:37:28 #Run3 Spent quite some time getting reflect rings, though my two white mages for this classic run can also cast that spell now. Didn't even try to get a staff of light, but one dropped anyway. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-26 19:46:33 #Run3 When I resigned myself to letting the two party members without flame rings not be alive at the end of the guardians fight, that's when I got the timing down to keep them alive. Shuffled equipment, too. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-26 22:44:19 #Run3 I had plenty of magic, if limited offense against Exdeath. Onto World 3. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-30 16:22:34 #Run3 Only my red mage can use a mirage vest, so the two white mages were hi-potion users and spare targets for Minotaur. Omniscient used drain once and reflected a cure later. Flare and Holy have been received. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-30 20:36:04 #Run3 After doing enough of Phoenix Tower to get !Dualcast the party is prepared for the Interdimensional Rift, with 6 gil remaining. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-30 21:16:18 #Run3 My new trick is trying to Flee with the Chicken Knife, acting first because of Hermes Sandals. If that doesn't work, have the black mage equip the Wonder Rod and reset the fight. But the section after Apanda, it really doesn't want to Flee. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-30 21:41:54 #Run3 !Dualcast Toad plus two white mages with Esuna fixes Ribbit so quickly Hali didn't even get to cast Holy once. Catastrophe didn't use Earth Shaker. Azulmagia only got to Level 4 Graviga. @FF5FJF2019
2019-08-30 21:53:02 #Run3 Dualcast was not so great against Twintania. 4 reflect rings and boosted Thundaga from the black mage, though, that and boosted Holy let me fiinish in two turns. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-30 22:55:55 #Run3 Thought I would try reflect rings for Necrophobe, but bad target selection didn't take any Barriers down. Hermes Sandals were the key that unlocked the final save point. #FF5FJF2019
2019-08-30 23:28:38 #Run3 Leaned heavily on Black Mage again for Shinryu. Red Mage was there to be an extra target, but Main Gauche didn't really catch any attacks from the berserk dragon. White Mages whittled with morningstar, but mostly on Blink duty. #FF5FJF2019 https://t.co/Kjhd2LA46o
2019-08-31 01:01:36 #Run3 Neo Exdeath took a 2nd try because I barely had more HP to take Almagest even with shell. For my first action against that second form, I tried break. It worked! Level 28 black mage, the odds are not great. #FF5FJF2019 https://t.co/pJHjVBLD3d
