ok. So I am very super extra NOT new to the game of FFX, but I have encountered a very n00bish problem. I CAN'T BEAT MACALANIA CLOISTER OF TRIALS!! Now under normal circumstances I think this would be very easy, and I would remember how to do it from my many previous games, but it's not happening. I keep ****ing up. I have tried countless walktroughs, but they are all from the same source, which is a poorly written, highly unclear walktrough.

so anyways, someone tell me (with mostly proper grammar and spelling, not like the douche who wrote the walkthrough) how to get 'er done?

Yeah they can be annoying..
I know how to do it but I can't remember exactly how unless I have the game in front of me.
Maybe if you describe the exact bit you are on?

I used a walkthrough when I did it, and I was able to complete it. Just try different combos.

If you're really desperate you could buy the official strategy guide. Honestly it's a god send for those trial things and all the other aspects of FFX. Is Macalania the one with the moving platforms? I hated that one.

geez......FF10. the game thats got the emotional response form me ever.

i really believe wen i beat evrae on the ship coming in to bevelle, it was the best i have ever felt in my life. it took me so long to beat him/her, the relief that i felt wen i finnaly won was like taking a life time of ****s and blasting them into the toilet bowl. felt sooo good.

hmm let me think about this been while since i played it, i didnt do it with a walkthrough either.
why do u guys play with a walkthrough? it ruins so much of the fun. sure its a hard game, but it pays off.

Not tryin to hijack the thread or anythin, but has anyone played X-2? Is it any good?.
#10
www.gamefaqs.com, check the biggest guide you can find there. It worked for me whenever I had problems.

I wouldn't see X-2 as a full game if I were you, not up to FF standards anyway. It ties together the loose ends from X, but it is very short. I finished it in 25 hours or so, and there weren't any cool extras to keep me going after this. I spent 1000+ hours on FFX on the other hand.

Get X-2 if you are a yuna + tidus fan. Otherwise, it isn't worth it

The hardest one is that floaty wierd one, where you float along on those platforms..

2 was absolutely terrible. I played 10 minutes of it and **** a brick at how bad it was. My buddy finished it and was pissed that he couldn't get the last 20-odd hours of his life refunded by Square-enix or whoever made the game.

In summary: NO.

He is the toughest optional boss in the game. You can fight him after defeating all of the dark aeons. It took me forever to get strong enough to even get to him lol.

I did them all without a walkthrough. I could do it if I had the game in front of me. Sorry, dude.
I'm stuck on a part, too. Haven't played the game in months, so I'm not reminded of my failure. It's a boss battle.

Quoting this.

The cloister is pretty easy if you think about it, take all the spheres out of the bridge, stick them in the spare places, then push the block into the ice, shattering it, push it into the other ice and down the ramp, then push it to the right into the column from the roof, then remove the others in logical order as to which you still need to use to get the next one. Can't really give a better description as this is from memory.

Also, I don't think the US version comes with the dark aeons and pennance.

If u want a proper game get ff12 or even get the best ff ever... FFXII oh yes the greatest game ever.

EDIT: so this isn't off topic... erm it's all about sliding the stand things if i remember to reveal a secret path, have you done that bit??

Listen to me. This is very important.

Take the game out of your system, and throw it up against a wall. You can consider that beating a game. It's much quicker than going through the hours and hours of ****ty plot, bad game play, and no control over the Airship.. Oh.. and you skip right past that stupid, easy as **** final boss. I mean Jesus Christ.. I beat Sin in ONE ****ing try. The first battle with Sin was MUCH MUCH harder..

My god that game sucked.

Get out of it before you invest too much time. Please.. For me.

Evrae was a ****ing BITCH the first time around, when he was a zombie he was cake though


Get the real walkthrough, it explains the temples well


However, it didn't help me with Evrae at all, haha


I stopped in the Zanarkand temple, I still have to beat that game

Way to bash one of the most respected, and most praised games ever created. I love the plot, the game play is incredible, and who cares about the airship. If you want flying get a flight simulator not an RPG.

In case you still haven't figured out that trial:

Lucky for you the hardest bosses are not in the main storyline of the game. Personally I like that, it meant that more people managed to see the story through, while those wanting more of a challenge could get it from the side quests.

Bull****. That game doesn't deserve any respect. The battle sequences were lame, the characters were mostly boring.. I'd like to know whose idea it was to place a jock as a main character in a game series that is mainly played by nerds who despise jocks. Or at least.. All the hard core Final Fantasy players I know. The only thing I can give X props on is the fact that it's better than Eight, which I despised even more. Aside from that, it was probably the easiest Final Fantasies I've ever played. Nothing in that game gave me the slightest challenges. Not even the non-main story bosses. They were all really easy to beat.

Final Fantasy Six and Seven both utterly destroy FF8 and FF10. I'm sorry. Even the first Final Fantasy game, which I'm not a big fan of, demolished it.

This reminds me, though.. I need to go buy 9 and finally beat it..

I agree on most points you made there, but seriously 9 sucks too- i prefer 8 over that any day. 9 was also another easy final fantasy. I hated the characters too, apart from Vivi.

10 was far too cheesy, Tidus was such a tool. That whole sequence with the 'practicing how to laugh' was just embarassing.
It was fun beating the crap out of everything in sight though.

Yeah, you've clearly never fought the original creations in the Monster arena. Ever beat Nemesis? oh wait, never heard of him? That's because you need to capture 10 of EVERY monster in the game to be able to fight him. And then you won't beat him. Ever gotten all of the Celestial Weapons with all the attributes on them? Oh wait. NO YOU ****ING HAVEN'T. Ever gotten your Bliztball team to Lvl. 99? did you ever even play Blitzball after the tounament at ****ing Kilika? NO YOU ****ING HAVEN'T.

Honestly, for just beating the main storyline, you have completed maybe 40% of the whole game. You suck. Now go play some easy, juvenile, 1 dimensional, 7 hours to beat game, you runny douche.

10 wasnt that bad. They gambled with the game, it was new for the PS2, probably seemed like the right time to make some changes. I liked the fact that you could get over 9999 health, that was cool. It was REALLY cheesy though...I agree with that.

Does anyone know which FF is on the Nintendo DS?

I did like the game. I like the graphics a lot. Especially the water, and the Brotherhood sword. I still think that VIII was better, though. Actually the best IMO. Its graphics were better for the console it was played on.

I don't know which one it is, but I heard from a hardcore FF fan that it sucked. It may just be different from most, though, which isn't necessarily bad. I haven't played it, though.

Well it is on the DS, so maybe it will be like the early versions. Bit like the pokemon view.

And VIII was a bangin game, although I prefer VII and IX. I never completed VIII, was it a shorter game than the others? Coz I was never leveled up enough when I got to the last bit.

VIII wasn't necessarily shorter, but it didn't just depend on levelling. You had to junction your magics efficiently to power up effectively.

i absolutely loved FFX. i liked the gameplay, the plot, the characters (tell me Auron is not a bonafied badass). I've spent countless hours on that game, its great. i agree, when i finally beat evrae on the airship i was so relieved. if it wasnt for my ps2 breaking I'd finish that game. I also didn't mind X-2, i found it entertaining with the different jobs and whatnot but the final boss was a joke, disappointing.

Yeah that's the one. I didn't like it at first, but once you opened up the status effects from the GFs, the junctioning system began to become fantastic!

I can't remember what a good level should have ben there, it's been many years since I last played VIII. Although I can remember the day I bought it. I got the limited box-set, complete with FFVIII t-shirt and Memory card with stickers.

What a joyous time that was!

lol a tshirt and stickers. I think my bro borrowed it off his friend, but he never collected it....so we kept it.

I dont think I junctioned the magic with the GF's, I cant remember doing that, and it would prob explain my weakish team. My team were so much better on FF7, with that knights of the round table summon as well!
