2018-06-20 10:48:38 Alright, White Mage! All healin', all the time. Also avoided the phantom no-750. Still can't break rods, though. https://t.co/hwjWNBvTzS
2018-06-20 13:20:52 "Hey Gilgamesh, I have a question for you! Do you like squirrels?" #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/Y3eXCWUTXc
2018-06-20 17:02:14 Sorry, Faris. It's nothing personal. Sacrifices must be made. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/sycJNqY5lO
2018-07-09 11:55:10 Back to the main run (and small TV with capture card for screenshot). A wild goose chase all day trying to set up for Crystals battle. Got down to last one here, started to heal up, then remembered I had an Aquathorn. Might as well try, right? GG. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/Es9xGfpxd5
2018-07-10 04:32:55 So this scene, I was sure I remembered it, but couldn't find it. It turns out, here on PS1, you trigger it by talking to the diary in the king's bedroom, which I definitely did in the other versions. Does this scene just not exist in other versions? #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/qhpJlWcJaY
2018-07-10 18:33:44 Omniscient used Scan on me, and it brought up this message. I.... think this is a reference to Bartz having blink status? Man, this translation is terrible. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/ua8lvfWaRk
2018-07-15 04:01:32 Wait, Meteo is a monster now? #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/N9rrYjfGTM
2018-07-15 17:30:22 Blasted all the way through to Twintania, had a clean shot until I realized... I never got Assassin's Dagger. Got the four tablets, never got weapons beyond the first three. Whoops! May actually be able to kill Twintania anyway, but not tonight. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/wbuLJ2rFeJ
2018-07-18 16:23:02 Took a few tries, a few attempts to navigate TwinTania's counterattacks, before I figured out the formula: Only attack with the Knight (two-handed Excalibur), hold back and heal with everyone else. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/ZQ2cnz2Q1x
2018-07-18 16:46:10 Surprisingly easy Necrophobe fight. Took out one barrier immediately, two more shortly after that, and then victory was assured. Easy access to full-party healing is sooooo delicious. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/rhwVHrATi8
2018-07-18 18:08:27 Got Shinryu with Berserk (like, the actual spell, not Wonder Wand) and Guard lock. And now I have a shiny new sword. :) #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/1B78lSjMFz
2018-07-18 20:46:08 Good gravy. I was left with only the Grand Cross part of NXD left, and my Knight decided to whiff THREE TIMES! At that point, it's all Almagest and Meteor and all the crazy stuff. But I pulled through, even a bit under-leveled. GG. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/Q1bwbwOiZS
2018-07-18 20:50:30 Sorry, FMV Omega. Not this time. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/CV2KrvrRlw
2018-07-21 09:34:57 And remember that is all-caps, ma'am. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/BWTsQKEjYY
2018-07-21 12:57:29 Got away with the Elf Cape without having to use a single Phoenix Down. Nice start to a new run! #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/SA7rqied9b
2018-07-21 13:14:22 Kill me once, shame on you. Kill me twice, shame on me for not using guard-and-cover. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/SMdmMQUtoY
2018-07-21 14:11:07 Knight into Summoner! This is shaping into one spicy Fiesta run. Also, 18 jobs into this Fiesta, and I --FINALLY-- have someone (not named Freelancer) who can break a rod. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/pbzEFnytvH
2018-07-21 18:08:35 Ninja!? Are you kidding me!? This team is so stacked. I swear, if my earth job is Chemist, I'm preemptively declaring victory. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/MMSIWl8VZS
2018-07-24 18:45:36 Easily took out all the Ruins' defense in one go. No naptime for this squad! #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/bkv1s0mTFo
2018-07-24 19:15:24 Man, I actually broke a sweat on that one. Even had to use four Hi-Potions, but I'll be able to buy as many as I want soon enough. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/Vpr8aNIBn6
2018-07-24 20:24:43 Seems only fitting that I end the night on gorgeous Tent Island. Pleasant dreams, everyone! #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/daUhQ0pz2N
2018-07-30 17:13:09 Started at Tent Island and tore through world 2 today. Had a little trouble in the part of Exdeath's castle with lava and big dragons, but otherwise enemies have melted in my wake. This party is bonkers. It's bad when Knight is your weakest link. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/rZRDpCcjYN
2018-07-30 20:26:07 The "Smoke" ability in this translation is called "Dustb", which I assume is short for "I'm going to kick over this Dustbin allowing me to escape, not because your vision is obscured, but because this sequence of events has you frozen in confusion." #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/r8TGSYRiYb
2018-08-11 13:21:16 Swung by Phoenix Tower to round out my summon list. Since I have the security of a Chemist, figured I'd trade in some Elixirs for a giant stack of ABP. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/8pv0p6zOyd
2018-08-11 18:01:20 Took care of some stuff today. Didn't quite clear out this run like I'd hoped, but I cleared everything outside the void. Grinding for some necessary Dragon Fangs and Turtle Shells before I head to bed. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/k6hL0LcMyw
2018-08-14 20:27:42 Just some late night / early morning boss rush. As expected, these fools cower in my wake. (Well, except for Catastrophe, who did get me with a double Earth Shaker because I was frankly too lazy to even bother with Levisalve.) #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/owuAZXtbhw
2018-08-18 13:43:20 Knight, Summoner, Ninja, Chemist. My party's one weakness: An extreme dependence on inventory. I'm going to do myself a favor and leave the Void to restock before closing this run out. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/3f2WT9jpjt
2018-08-18 16:12:07 Like everyone, I typically beat Shinryu using Berserk. But with this uber-party, I wanted to beat him straight-up. Chemist mixes, Golem, Bahamut. I was confused why L.3 Flare kept hitting different people, until I remembered I used Samson's Might. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/t1iNb9J2EI
2018-08-18 16:13:31 Also, this is a thing. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/mnlsunIuwB
2018-08-18 16:50:13 Glitching Exdeath with "Kiss of Blessing" is not legal, because you never fight his last form, and you can never get a proper victory screenshot. But I'd never actually seen the bug happen, so I wanted to do it unofficially. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/7iU3cv7uEz
2018-08-18 17:46:22 As expected, NXD is a breeze. I used Kiss of Blessing to berserk Exdeath's first form just to give me time to set everything up, then cured berserk so I wouldn't skip NXD. (Though apparently now we can skip?) I'm just having fun at this point. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/yffbIgVjIh
2018-08-18 17:57:19 I can legit get up and walk away with this party. Grand Cross part died quick, Almagest fired once and only did about 1/4 my HP. Finally got a successful Thief Knife steal, and now... I'm going to deal the final blow with dual-wield Ragnaroks! :D #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/UOOnClC2EC
2018-08-18 18:58:48 This is Ersatz, our mission accomplished. Battle has ended and we have a new hero now. I was feeling different as I received the blessings from comrades. Now, so much time has elapsed and I'm old now. I hope this story will be told for a long time. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/dITEKeGmzs
2018-08-21 04:19:06 Yo ho ho! Time to cast off again! I'm actually not a very fast FF5 player, but the clock is ticking on this year's Fiesta, so I'm gonna try to blast through as much of the game today as possible. No run shall be left unfinished! #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/fDCc1Ffr1N
2018-08-21 10:25:04 I told you I wasn't a fast FF5 player, lol! Actually, not long after starting, I laid down and took a nap. But I'm back and ready to ring dat bell, for great justice. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/xgTyCEQ0q3
2018-08-21 13:20:23 Inspired by my unusual dearth of water jobs this Fiesta, I decided one of my Job Fair runs would be sort of a water job special. No, not Berserker, but the other four. I have so much magic with this party, it's ridiculous. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/LAnE3laCFz
2018-08-21 16:29:45 Technically, the rules are you unlock one job at each crystal. And I follow that normally, but a Job Fair donation run is just for fun, and you already know what the jobs are, so what the hey, use 'em all right away. Screw the rules, I have money! #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/m6hmiRzu11
2018-08-21 18:04:16 Aevis goes down. Most of my PS1 stills come from screenshots of OBS via my capture card. For whatever reason, the menu color I chose looks much more green in those screenshots than it does on my TV, though maybe my TV is the incorrect one. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/LbwSfERO0G
2018-08-21 18:53:35 Even the game is telling me to call it a night. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/rIqmBok6hg
2018-08-22 06:18:13 This is always a tough section. Unless you have Break Spellblade, of course. It just tears through everything. (Well, almost everything.) #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/yKriZ63FMr
2018-08-22 06:42:43 Lenna fused with a Moogle. Neither sprite is really on top of the other. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/wp8lTuctGl
2018-08-22 19:15:13 Poking Atomos with a stick wakes him up, but earthquakes do not. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/8JeCIs0BKK
2018-08-23 16:23:58 I usually don't skip this Gilgamesh battle, but I see no reason not to here. Apparently, in some versions skipping this means he won't be in the Void to help you later, but it sounds like that doesn't include PS1. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/nE5JJRUqpp
2018-08-23 16:37:42 Painless Exdeath fight. This water job party isn't quite mega-broken, but it's pretty solid. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/TackDQu3pv
2018-08-24 04:39:28 I never noticed this guy had cloven feet. I assume it's the same for his brother in the tow-ugh. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/8Wvh89DjOw
2018-08-24 06:47:51 Rather than fight Odin for real, I just turned him to stone. This seems vaguely familiar... #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/oOQ9PxK4dl
2018-08-25 16:22:03 Got the Double Fiesta going on! Getting in some time on my Android run while resetting Gogo fight, hoping to nab a Gold Hairpin (a.k.a. "Hair Ornament"). My only visit to Gogo this whole Fiesta, but with a magic-heavy party, it should be worth it. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/C5XDtIIjDw
2018-08-25 16:25:14 Like, not even a minute later, not even enough time to finish the last post, I finally got it. Time Mage for the win! #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/hSZg11D13w
2018-08-25 16:33:04 After all that waiting, this Omega-wannabe gave me a scare on my way out. He was impervious to a Lightning Rod, but thankfully, Break Spellblade killed him (while dealing 0 damage). #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/OvLx8DBWWF
2018-08-25 17:34:00 I usually cheese these jokers with Magic Lamp, just like everyone. But I figure, what the hey, why not beat them straight up this time. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/oLiFL33xEb
2018-08-25 17:44:59 I've done 15 non-Job Fair runs of Fiesta (starting last year). The only regular job I have yet to roll randomly in any of those runs is Time Mage. So believe me when I say I am very appreciative of Teleport. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/Tz7OZaFFjI
2018-08-26 03:46:55 Took all the money I got in Phoenix Tower, spent it all on four Coral Rings for this fight, which I will now promptly sell to restock items. Thing is, I killed him so fast, I'm not sure I even needed them. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/U8wdsFgX33
2018-08-28 09:55:01 Azulmagia took me down to the very last of my MP, threatening me for my hubris from not bothering to save after Apanda. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/r38pGCOJuz
2018-08-28 10:37:56 It's a Four Frog Fiesta! Today's my last day off work before the end of Fiesta, but I'm making great time. I'll have this run wrapped up this evening, no problema. That just leaves my Monks and Blue Mages, currently holed up in Barrier Tower. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/vPPoQ6G5uP
2018-08-28 12:10:56 Usually I get at least one batch of the Sealed Weapons, and sometimes I just get them all. This time, I didn't even bother. The only ones I could even use are Assassin's Dagger, Magus Rod and Sage Staff, and I really don't need them with this party. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/V6RrvpjdTH
2018-08-28 12:59:22 Gilgamesh? Gilgamesh!?......... Hmm, Must be his day off. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/6bXPsX9rkg
2018-08-28 13:38:39 As expected, between Summon ability and the Magic Lamp, I obliterated Necrophobe's barriers before they even got a turn. And apparently, this is what Necrophobe says when Gilgamesh never shows up? #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/n8Sh7jx2Hz
2018-08-28 17:12:44 As expected, NXD was a walk in the park. Didn't even use a single curative item the whole battle. Also tried a new strategy, using Lamp right away and casting Old on Almagest, leaving it weakened, relying on Break Spellblade for the final blow. GG. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/6MiBYgtpw7
2018-08-28 17:17:09 Oh, sorry FMV Shinryu, not this time. This party could've easily taken on the Dragon, and probably could've taken Omega as well (especially if the Time Mage tricks work on PS1). I just don't like to do extra credit on Job Fair runs. Not my style. #FF5FJF2018 https://t.co/fJebJUkjqQ
