I don't recall any clues about the coordinates themselves, so you'd likely need to brute force it by trying over and over until something pops.

There are suspicious-looking spots on the world map. It's a halfhearted attempt at including exploration into a very linear game.

Aw dang, looks like the third season of Team Four Star's FF7 Machinabridged is starting on Friday!



Considering there was about two years between season 1 and 2, I was expecting this to take longer.

I honestly can't imagine how they're gonna handle the whole Disc 1 conclusion.

The mobile port may not be the most ideal way to play Final Fantasy V (I still think Square Enix and Matrix could've done better with the visuals), but it's still Final Fantasy V and I enjoy playing it.



Also I love that I can screencap any fun dialogue I come across.

I played through most of FF6 not knowing you can multi-target spells. That sort of counts, right?

Consider me interested. So I'd assume you'd switch to your chosen four whenever you are able? And presumably seek them out first in the world of ruin?

I wonder, what would be the four worst characters to get?

At first I thought it would be bad to get Gogo without Magic but then... nah, they're probably pretty great?

I figure it’s no espers but characters who learn magic naturally still have access.

It probably depends whether or not the rules allow Gogo to use abilities beyond those of the other 3 random party members?

And also, relative to other characters, whether or not Espers just to boost stats are allowed. If no one can boost their stats with Espers, then Gogo being unable to do it is less bad compared to a normal run.

(If I were making the rules, I think (1) Gogo can only use abilities from the other 3 characters and (2) Esper stat boosts are okay, you just can't ever select "Magic" or summon would be the most fun....)

Umaro is a great party member in a standard run except for a few situational cases where a berserker causes problems, and he's even better relative to everybody else if you can't use magic.

Setzer is one of the best characters in the game once you get the trick dice, even without abusing slots of throwing money.

Realm is about the worst character if you take away magic sketch is pretty fickle, nothing really hard allows control and her gear selection is abysmal. And likely still Cyan unless you get three ragers, though level 1 and 2 Bushodo are fine. Celes is pretty limited after that, but both she and Terra have really good gear access and at least Runic will never screw you over.

Putting Mog (who actually has healing) or Umaro (constant high damage and even an AoE) on that list is just crazy, they're both great out of the box. Gau takes a little work, but once you've done that he's also absurd, especially if you play SNES with Merit Award.

Curious about the rules. This game frequently dictates what your party is.

Even if it's literally "no magic" instead of "natural magic," Terra and Celes are fine. They have the best equipment selection in the game.

Worst party? Relm, Cyan, Locke, and probably Umaro. It's not that Umaro is terrible, but he's a locked party slot for 80% of the game, and he and Relm will have to babysit each other in Kefka's Tower.

Good luck beating Wrexsoul with Relm+Locke, by the way.

No one is actually bad in FFVI, but I'd normally rank them like this:

Tier 1: Gau, Sabin
Tier 2: Shadow, Edgar, Gogo
Tier 3: Terra, Celes, Locke, Mog
Tier 4: Relm, Setzer, Strago, Cyan
Tier 5: Umaro

(This is a list that does not consider RNG manipulation or glitching the game to be a good time)

Without magic, Relm is the big loser and Mog is the big winner. If Strago can use Lore he's better than usual but still not as good as Gau or Mog. Everyone else stays put.

Meanwhile the FFV tier list is sorted by the characters' innate agility stats because it's the only way to tell them apart.

Locke can use the Valiant Knife, so he's top tier in any run, although especially with no magic.

Honestly beating Wrexsoul the honest way is more tedious than difficult, and Locke is a real hoss with that defense ignoring valiant knife. (Realm obviously has the most to lose in a no magic run, since she's the game's best magic user . . . But at least she has some amazing defensive gear. She'd still be a good potion slinger who will never die.)

Locke also has legimatelly decent stats and just being able to swing swords around is good enugh for WoB. Nothing should be too hard before the factory where you can pick up some elemental swords and go to town.

But getting him in WoR with a weak team could be painful, yeah. If it kicks in as soon as you rescue a party member in WoR routing there will be key; whatever you do don'tget Relm first

I'm thinking the ideal party here is Mog, Gau, Gogo, Sabin. (I mean, yeah, the point is it's random, but I'm just saying.)

Please remember where Strago is when suggesting he would be good for such a run.

The rules in the linked post are pretty loose for when you can't get to your party member, so it's probably fine unless you're self-imposing the strictest variation possible.
