Date: sat, 10 may 2003 15:30:20 Final Fantasy VII Weapon FAQ by [email protected] This FAQ will focus on the Weapons you will find during the game. Diamond Weapon This is by far the easiest weapon to beat. He is the one that comes out of the water and starts advancing toward Midgar. Basically, all you have to do is use Knights of the Round to win!but with you don't have the Knights of the Round you just have to do is to pummel him until he's dead by attacking with summons and maybe magic, I forget. Remember that he is invulnerable to physical attacks until after he does Diamond Flash. Anyway, cure yourself when you're low onHP and that's how to beat Weapon. You can also steal a Rising Sun from him. Ultima Weapon This is by far the most annoying weapon. The first time you fight him, all you have to do is survive his attacks and attack back for a couple of rounds. The next time you fight him, I forget but here's how to beat him. When you can, take the Highwind over Lake Junon (waterfall, deep pool, near Junon). If you see a large black monster over it, that's Ultima Weapon. If not, try again later. When you fight him the first time, any attacks that are long range will hit him. When he's taken enough damage, he will fly away. Now, you have to chase him in the Highwind until he stops moving. Then you'll have to fight him again. When he makes his final stop at Cosmo Canyon, beat him and he will explode in the canyon creating passage for the ancient forest. You can get the Ultima Weapon after you beat him. But with you don't have the patient to do this just use Knights of the Round and he is going to stop in cosmo canyon tnem use it again to defeat him. BUT DON'T FORGET EQUIP THE ENEMY SKILL IN THE CHARACTER THAT WILL KILL HIM TO GET THE BEST MAGIC OF THE ENEMY SKILL!! Emerald Weapon There are 2 ways to prepare to battle Emerald Weapon. The fast and easy way is to equip underwater materia, knights of the round, final attack, phoenix and 2 mimes. Equip underwater to whoever, Knights of the round to anyone, the 2 mimes to your two other character and the final attack and phoenix to whoever as long as they are linked. The long, hard but most beneficial way is to attach Master Command, 2 Quadra Magics, Master magic, Double cut, Master summon, W-Magic, W-Summon, W-Item, Final Attack, Phoenix and Underwater. With the long way, fire 4x Demi twice, and mime. When needed, restore health. Then repeat. With the short way, Knights of the round and mime. When need, restore health. When you defeat him, you will get Earth Harp. A challenge, Try to morph him. Emerald can be found underwater next to Junon. He is the big swimming thing. Use the sub to bump into him. Ruby Weapon The way I used to beat Ruby is very unorthodox. First I equipped W-Summon, MP Turbo linked to Master Summon, Master Command, Elemental on the armor, Fire linked to it and Ribbon to any character with their ultimate weapon. Then I went and fought at another battle near Ruby. I am not insane, but I killed the other characters who I did not equip the materia on. I went on to fight Ruby. First when he extended the tentacles, I cast Hades on the tentacles and Hades on Ruby. When they were stopped, I used Knights of the Round on Ruby twice until he began moving. Then I used Hades again to freeze both of them. I did this until he retracted his arms. Then I kept doing Knights of the Round until I beat him. He gives you Desert Rose. A challenge, try to morph him. Ruby can be found in the desert surrounding the Golden Saucer. You can get to him by Highwind or Gold Chocobo. He is the little red person in the desert.
