TRAINING A CHOCOBO You need to go see the chocobo trainer. She is ontop of a chocobo at the very edge of the cliff. Go ask her if you can train a chocobo. Do the tasks she gives you. You will get prizes. Now every time you go talk to her, say "Let me ride a chocobo". Now you can go around the calm lands, faster and safer. THE REMIAN TEMPLE You need a chocobo to get to Belgamine at the Remian Temple. There wil be a destroyed bridge. You should see a chocobo feather. While on the chocobo, press X by the feather, and you will fly across the bridge and now you will see a path. Go in the path and you will reach The Remian Temple. Go inside and you will see Belgamine, she will explain the tremple and show you her secret. You can also battle her aeons. CHOCOBO RACE 1 After three classes of chocobo training, you will have a chance to race the chocobo trainer. Go as fast as you can, from the entrance to Macalania to the east side of the Calm Lands. Run through baloons and avoid baloons for a better time. CHOCOBO RACE 2 At the remian temple, before you enter, turn left and you wil see a shpere, listen to it and it wil tell you to go to the right side and get on the chocobo. Race to the bottom of the temple and hitting the glowing poles and opening tresure chests, which is optional. You will get a cloudy mirror for winning. CELSTIAL MIRROR You'll need the cloudy mirror. In the macalania forest, find the woman and her son at the entrance to the Thunder Plains. They want you to find the Father. Go find him where you had your campsite, after ditching bevelle. Then go see them again. Talk to the woman twice. She'll tell you her son ran off. Go on the glowing ice path go to the path that seperates upward. When it says "use the clouded mirror?" say "yes" and it will clear up the mirror. You now have the Celestial Weopon. SPIRIT LANCE to get Kimahri's celestial weopon, Spirit Lance, go to the Thunder Plains. Remeber the Cactuar Statues? Go look at all the glowing statues, the press square, you will pray. There are a lot of statues, but you'll only need to pray to three of them. They will glow Cyan. After praying to them, go to the south of ther Thunder Plains (Guadosalam area) and look for te Cactuar Ghost. Go follow him to a ruined Lighting Tower. Pray to the tower and a chest will apear. Use the celestial weopon and it will give you the spirit lance. CALADBOLD To get Tidus' celestial weopon, you neecd to get rid of ther guard blocking the caladbolg. Look on the map, there is a little walkway in the north-west calm lands its hard to see. But it looks like a tail... kind of. Anyway, there is a guard with a red robe there. He wont let you back there so go to the Chocobo trainer. Do a training lesson and win or lose. The guartd will be amazed by the lesson and will leave his post. Go down the path and there will be a square in the wall. And then use the celestial mirror. That gives you the Caladbolg. NIRVANA to get the Nirvana, Yuna's celestial weopon, you need to get all 9 fiends in the calm lands. Talk to the old guy in front of the arena. He will give you a chest. Use the celestial mirror to open it. DEFENDER X To beat Defender X (the titan blocking you from Mt. Gagazet) you need ALL your overdrives. First, use all your aeons. If hes still alive, use Aurons "Banishing Blade" overdrive, it can do 9999 damage as long as the weopon you use has Peircing (i recomend Shimmering Blade with Strength +10, Strength +5, Peircing) If you havent killed him yet use use Mental Break, and Armor Break and use Lulu's -aga fury. I waas able to beat Defender X before he uses Mighty Guard or Slowga like this. RUSTY SWORD This si needed to make the Masrusume, (FF7's Sephiroth's sword)(looks like cloud was wrong when he said "only sephiroth can use that sword.") Anyway, after defeating Defender X, Go to the Valley, (Lulu will tell you what that is) and keep going until you see a training crusader. Behind him, across the path is the rusty sword, lying in the ground. Just go to it and press X. YOJIMBO I hated acieving this. Go into the cave, right by the save sphere in the valley. Keep going until you see the summoner that Lulu was first a guardian to. Fight her Yojimbo and win with aeons and magic. Bahamut's Mega Flare works fine. After Yuna sends the spirit, go use the warp pad into the chamber of faith into the chamber of faith. Tell the spirit you want his help training as a summoner and he'll make you pay, up too 300,000 gil or higher for his servises. I hated it because, i was low on gil i had to sell a lot of weopons. MAGNUS SISITERS Beat Belgamines's Bahamut to get the Flower Spectrum and go to the glowing door. Press X and say you want to use the item. KIMAHRIS LANCET use Lancet on Chimira Brains for Aqua Breath. (u can also use it on Chimiras in the Macalania Forest.) Use it on a Malboro to get Bad Breath (confuse, poison, darkness, silence effect.) And stone breath on the Black Baskilisks. (i forgot what there called) HIDDEN TREASURE Go back to the broken bridge leading to remian temple. Under it there are two trasure chests. One holds 5000 gil and the other holds 10000 gil. CENTRAL The center of the Calm Lands hold one of Rins stores. You cant rest heere so just use the tavellers shpere to refill your life and magic (whether you save or not.) AL BEHD TRANSLATION You should go to the Al Behd. It took a while to find him, so go leave the central and run around it till you see an Al Behd man inside. That will make it easier to find him. Go speake to him. He will say (english translation) "I have a message from Cid, He Said, 'Once we left you in Bevelle, we sent for repairs. Until then, keep Yuna safe, or you'll be sorry, bud!'" Talk again and he will say, "After dropping you off in bevelle, we let all summoner off. Then whent for repairs." or something like that. GET YOU OVERDRIVES Next to the Al Behd there is one of those blue screens that lets you see your tutorials. Go to fiend info and fight a Bashura. It is powerful so you will fill your overdrive gauge when yourcharacters on "stoic." If there on "Worrior." Then fight a Malboro. (Change your overdrive mode by going to the menu and selecting overdrive. Then select Worrior or Stoic. This also includes Ally, Healer, Victor, and Slayer. You can read up on those.) CATCHING FIENDS Go to the fiend arena (green square on the map) in the Eastern area. Buy Taming Sword, Beastmaster, and Taming Staff. Those are the only weopons you really need. It would be a lot easier if you had all of them bt that would be too exspensive. TOUGHER FIENDS All the tougher fiends in the North-Western area. !!!!thats all you need to know about the calm lands!!!!
