Final Fantasy III - Platform: Nintendo DS
Another Cloud of Darkness Battle:
First, you get all of your characters around level 60-65. You must have a
Devout, a Summoner, a Black Belt, and a Ninja in your party. Put your
mages in the back row, and make sure that the devout has every white Magic
spell in his/her spell book. Then make sure that your summoner has every
summon magic available for use.
The Cloud of Darkness attacks four times each round. It swipes its hand at
your, uses bad breath, casts the spells haste and protect on itself, and
uses lightning. After you deplete a portion of it's health, it starts
using Particle Beam a lot.
The party should have the best armor and weapons equipped, and you want
good defense and magical defense. Everyone should have their share of
either ribbons, aegis shields, or onion armor so the bad breath attack
won't affect them.
Use Arise when ever needed, and when not needed, use Curaja and Curaga
every turn. When you use Arise, have everyone else that is standing use an
elixir so they won't die. Intend to use up all of your shuriken and
elixirs. I killed The Cloud of darkness in about 8 rounds using this
technique, and this party at Level 66:
Luneth: Black Belt
Best jobs for start of the game:
The four best jobs you should have when you first get to use the jobs is a
Warrior, Black Mage, White mage, and Red Mage. These four jobs should help
you a lot.
Black Belt and Monk:
When you are able to get the job(s) monk and or Blackbelt get them on one
of you characters immediately!
Monk and Blackbelt do massive amounts of damage even without weapons.
Monks are the early stage but have about the highest vitality early and
can do 9,999 as early as lvl 30 in some cases or earlier.
Blackbelts are the upgraded rank of monk but can do much more damage.
Monks can boost their attack so on the next turn it can unleash a massive
blow. Blackbelt also have super high vitality and agility so they can
strike first, strike long, and strike hard.
Call Me Ninja:
In order to acquire the Ninja class -- considered to be the strongest
class of them all -- you need to go to Eureka (a sidequest area found in
the first floor of Sylx Tower) and go all the way through it. When seeing
the last teleport (the one who usually takes you to an area with stores),
turn all the way left and you will see a floating staff. By touching it
you'll fight Scylla, who gives you this class, when defeated.
Cloud of Darkness Battle:
To kill the cloud of Darkness you need a Black Belt, a Scholar, and a
Devout. The third position is up to, I used a Geomance whitch seemed to
For the Devout you'll need the spells Curaga, Curaja, Arise, and Esuna and
that's all you really need but if you have the rest that will help.
Everyone should be at least level 60 but the higher the level the easyer
it is to beet the boss. Everyone should have a ribbon for two reasons:
one, is because it helps with magic defence and two, because the Cloud of
Darkness has two Tentacles that usually use "Bad Breath" that will inflict
every status ailment on your party.
The Black Belt needs to have the Hellish Claws and the Dark Claws. Use the
duplication cheat on either a Chocoboe's Wraith or a White Musk untile you
have around 25 for all of the bosses in the world of Darkness and the
If the Scholar uses either one of those at a high enough job level it will
always do 9,999 damage. Use Curaga every turn unless your party doesn't
have that much health then use Curaja. Attack with Black Belt every turn.
If you have to use Arise, everyone else should use an elixer unless they
have full health. If you're using the Geomancer as I did, try Terrian
every turn. Within 5 to 7 turns, the battle will be cleared.
Duplicate Consumable Items:
All useable items (not weapons/armors/magic) can be duped using this
method, as mentioned,
1. Open the menu during "walkabout mode" (i.e., not in a battle).
2. Select "Items" and put the item you want duplicated in the top left
corner of the item list.
3. Engage in a random battle. During battle, select the item command for
4. Your cursor should be at the very top left of the item box (and on the
item you have placed there). Press UP and A at the same time. This should
briefly take you to Weapon and Shield lists. If you see this, the code has
worked after you hit the B button. Go to your inventory and you will
notice that the item quantity has been added by one. You may do this for
any item that is stackable.
*WARNING: This item duplication will ruin the game play, please note to do
this at your own risk. If may also damage your save file so please
duplicate your save before you attempt this.
In Final Fantasy III, all magics can be duped using this method, as
mentioned, please use at your own risk.
1)Open menu screen via non-battle.
3)Go to any character you desire and select by A Button
4)Once at the magic menu, go select Trade (koukan)
5)Highlight a character that has magic you want to duplicate, but do not
push the accept button (A button). Simply highlight the character (Hover
the cursor on the character)
6)After highlighting the character you wish to duplicate magic off, hit
the cancel button once (B button)
7)You should be back to the first character you chose, now go select
8)Now, move your cursor to the level and space of magic you wish to
duplicate from the character you highlighted. You will get and hear the
error message, but in reality, you are removing the magic that you don't
even have(duplicated magic).
*You will now that the glitched worked on begging of step8 if the
description of the magic you want to duplicate is describe in the text
box. If you are using the character that has magic already (the one you
chose on step 3) in the level you want to duplicate magics off, make sure
you remove all magic he has equipped on before Step 1, other wise you will
rewrite the loose the magic with the one you are trying to duplicate.
Easy Experience and Gil:
In the Crystal Tower, there are summoner enemies that will summon
creatures to attack you. If you continue to kill their summoned creatures
but don’t slay the summoner itself, you can make a lot of Gil and
experience while staying in the same battle. So, for instance, if you
fight the summoner’s creatures 30 times, you will make in the region of
100,000 Gil and 72,400 experience.
Go to the Town Of The Ancients and talk to the child two stories up the
grass hills. He is back behind the stairs. He will tell you that he will
give you a prize if you ride around the continent. Leave town and go east
a bit. Get a Chocobo and ride around the outside of the continent. Go back
and talk to the child for your rewards. Sell them, then repeat.
Easy Job Leveling:
If you want to be able to level up a character to job level 99 in any
given job in only a few hours, try the following. Enter a random battle
with as weak of an enemy as you can find (since it's arbitrary how strong
the creature is). Select the "Guard" command for your characters. Do this
for four rounds. On the fifth round, kill the enemy party. Each character
will receive a job level. Repeat as needed.
Easy Win Against Gutsco:
At first I had trouble with the boss but here's an easy way.
Go through the dugeon a couple times to get enough exp to make the battle
even easier. But a city to the south called "The Village of the Ancients"
contains all three level black magics as well as the white magic teleport.
I used three mages : 2 red (Luneth and Ingus) and a black (Arc). I made
Refia a Monk. Have your red mages cast healing and ice spells. A monk can
retaliate easily with the new claws found in the dungeon. If you keep the
black mage casting ice spells as well you'll definetly win in a few
Another thing you should probably do is move them to the back, especially
the black mage and the red mages too, if they have enough high level magic
Find the Shuriken:
To get the Shuriken (available only to the Ninja class for them to throw),
head to Gysahl Town. Enter the ship where you can purchase Magic Keys. Go
to the right of the counter in the store and you will walk through a
secret passage that will allow you to go behind the desk. There you will
find the treasure chest which contains the powerful Shuriken.
