The Quest to 100% - Part 1: Final Fantasy XII
by, 30th December 2010 at 02:06 AM (444 Views)
Out of all the video games I own in my house, only 1 of them I've actually managed to get a 100% percent completion rate in, and that was in Donkey Kong 64 on my N64. A lot of my games I've had for multiple years and not once have I obtained a 100% completion, which includes the main story and every single sidequest. Now I'm going to replay all of my games and play them until I get that 100% completion.
The first game on my list to conquer is Final Fantasy 12. This one will take me a while since there are so many freakin sidequests. To obtain a 100% completion rate in FFXII, I have to: conquer the main story, complete all the sidequests, defeat all optional bosses, and for an extra challenge, obtain all weapons and armor.
So far, I still need to complete the main story, which I'm getting close to finishing. For those of you who've played the game, I'm about to head toward the Pharos. As far as sidequests go, I've been completing as much as I can while I have Reddas as my guest party member, since he kicks some ass. Berserk FTW! With him, I've complete most of the Mob Hunts available where I'm at in the game. The only one I haven't completed is Fafnir, since I tried and he was a freakin pain. It made me wanna do this:
Also with thanks to Reddas, I've obtained 10 out of 13 Espers, and the only ones left I have to get are Hashmal, Famfrit (both in storyline), and the optional Zodiark, and since I have 10 espers, I can go into the deep part of the mines to battle and get him.
Another sidequest I'm working on now is the Hunt Club sidequest, where I have to hunt down 30 rare monsters and deliver the trophies they drop back to the Phon Coast. So far I've hunted 28 out of 30, my most recent kill being the powerful Disma. I still have a long way to go.
Also, Reddas is very useful for these sidequests since about half of them you normally should be higher leveled to take them on easier. Berserking Reddas makes handling these sidequests much more bearable.
My party levels as of now:
Vaan: lvl 52
Balthier: lvl 50
Fran: lvl 53
Basch: lvl 53
Ashe: lvl 54
Penelo: lvl 51
I'll probably update this blog post as I get farther in my goal.
