Did you have the Underwater Materia, or did you grind until you were strong enough to defeat it before you drowned?

I got the materia I am pretty sure you can do it without it but you need to be an materia enginer for that also you need some disc 3 materia too.

is all digits 9 really possible or did i just not grind enough

ID: h8f174a

Lvl 99 and a mastered hp plus materia (a non master one works too)

ID: h8f1awa

A few HP+ materia maxed will do that.

ID: h8f1e30

Yeah HP and MP plus materia will your HP & MP respectively

With a character's ultimate weapon, yes. The damage for their weapon is based on Max HP for some characters (like Cloud) and others Max MP. I think Barret's is based on the total AP of the equipped materia? Something like that.

Anyway, yeah, once you get some ultimate weapons you can start doing crazy amounts of damage pretty easily.

Congrats! It’s a great achievement

Sad I think ruby weapon is not available on disc 2

Ultimate Weapon can be fought before Raid on Midgar

He is, but you gotta hope ultimately weapon doesn't hover over midgar. Just run into him above the gold saucer continent and cast kotr and you should be good though.

Where did you grind to max levels in disc 2 surely it took an age? We're talking hundreds of hours of grinding?

ID: h8f3y70

In that sunken ship or plane idk what it is I grinded there also I was on emulater so I had speed up so that helped too.

One of the hardest things I ever did in my youth was play FF7 and go after Emerald Weapon....without

Knights of the Round


4x Attack

Underwater Materia

Basically, it was Cloud/Cid/RedXII that went against that monster. And I beat him with < 5 minutes left.

The reward you get after beating him basically changed the entire game since you effectively get MASTER materia

Transforming Vincent for the Weapon fight, that's a bold move. And nicely done. What was your strategy?

ID: h8f6cvk

Ok so kotr spam, omnislash spam healing spam I was able to use kotr 2 times with w summon then I just healed attacked used limits when I could healed again attacked and used limits again and then I just did this like 15 times also everyone had counter attack materia so that helped too

I remember the feeling of doing this the 1 time i did do it. I had a 15 year gap from when i was a kid till i greq up and grinded ff7 out again. And when i beat emerald and ruby.. i almost cried.. lol

Imho, Emerald is pretty easy compared to Ruby.

ID: h8gdcbv

Ruby has a cheese strategy that works, though (W-Summon Diabolos/KotR attached to HP absorb, then Mime until the boss dies - but go in with two characters KOed before the fight starts). Emerald requires more work.

What level was your team at? My team of Cloud, Vincent, and Red XIII is at level 70-80 and I still can’t beat Emerald Weapon.

ID: h8f40jn

Lvl 99

ID: h8f6b4q

You can beat it at that level with a good strategy and equipment. Two caveats to that. Some good equipment is missable, for example the Zeidrich can only be obtained by stealing from Rude on disc 2. And some strategies won't work on releases with the Magic Defense bug, which includes the PS1 release (unless you patch the iso).

It's been so long ago that I did that... I cannot even remember how anymore.. but I can remember Emerald Weapon from FF14 which was not long ago.

Is there much difference between doing it on Disc 2 or 3? After you get the submarine it's pretty much all the same (unless you can be bothered to train in the lower depths of Northern Crater but who's got time for that?)

Now Ruby!

ID: h8f44u7

Give me a minute let me speed run raid on midgar so I can get to disc 3

16 : Anonymous2021/08/10 17:36 ID: h8fn4qy

Congrats! Also, I still find curious that FF7 of all games actually had a barrier meter (for measuring how long your protects and shells last presumably).

17 : Anonymous2021/08/10 20:39 ID: h8gd72e

I wonder how this is gonna work in the remake. I imagine you’d probably need the special materia

18 : Anonymous2021/08/10 20:55 ID: h8gfd4a

Very nice job. Now do it again on PS4. There's a trophy for it.

19 : Anonymous2021/08/10 21:06 ID: h8ggxwy

So this was nifty, then I read "disk two."

20 : Anonymous2021/08/10 21:54 ID: h8gngzb

im gonna say something ppl will hate me for: i think ff7 on ps1 looks awful. and no im not some cod kid, im literally (re)playing ff1-6 at the moment and they look gorgeous. that pixel art is so beautiful. and i might give the original ff7 a try on emulator (really need a fast forward lol) but man. the polygones... idk. they are ugly to me.

ID: h8gwpw2

I hate you for saying this, why do you exist? Jk
