Final Fantasy 8 Diablos Fighting Guide

This is how i fought Diablos.

You will need Carbuncle and a few Phoenix Downs.(I was at the save point just before you need to fight Edea on disc one, with a party of Quistis, Zell and Selphie.)

First i made Zell cast Carbuncle, then had Quistis cast her strongest GF and had Selphie do the same, then Zell cast his strongest GF (apart from Carbuncle), i carried on with that sequence of everyone casting their strongest GF, i had to revive Quistis and Zell with Phoenix Downs.

I then had Quistis draw a few Demi spells from him, by that time Diablos had about 2000 Hp left, also Selphie could use her limit break, i had her cycle through her spells until i got Ultima x2 (hits around 2500 each time on Diablos) which finished him off with about 3000 Hp overkill.

Most people find this hard, but i find it east with Carbuncle as every time Diablos casts Demi he just keeps halfing his own Hp.


Alternitavely you could wait until you get Pandemonia as he is weak against wind.

How To Get Squall Super Powerful

Have a GF learn STR+10%, 20% .e.c.t. and then junction it with Squall. Then junction 100 Tornadoes to his strength. With the Lion Heart and a critical (R1 button as Squall strikes the enemy) you will almost always do 9999 damage with every hit, this will work well with bosses such as Ultima and Omega weapon. It will also work well with Renzokuken and the Lion Heart finish.

Selphie Limit Break Trick

To easily get anything for selphie's limit break ('The End' for example) open the Playstation lid while using 'Slots'. This will cause all things to freeze except her limit break and you can do as many do overs as you need until you get the spell you want. When you have what you want close the Playstation lid and resume play.

Unlimited Potions

To get unlimited potions go to Timber with Rinoa in your party then go to the bridge overlooking trains coming in and out of a tunnel (where the guards were). Walk in and out of the screen until you see a guy watching the trains, talk to him and he will give you a potion and then run off. You can repeat this for as long as you want and you can get up to 99 potions. You can also do this with Quistis after she has been on the giant TV screen. This may be very time consuming, but hey, it's free.

World Map Draw Point Map

This is a map of all the draw points on the World Map. The two magnified islands (The island closest to heaven and the island closest to hell) are very good for leveling as they hold monsters like Chimera, Hexdragon, Red dragon, Malboro, Ouchu .e.c.t. and they give over 1000 exp per battle.

Card Queen Location and Dollet Help

If you want to know what the Card Queen means when she gives you a clue to her destination then look no further.

Balamb - Outside Balamb train station where you first find her. (Disc 2 - 3)

Galbadia - In Deling City Hotel, by the save point. (Disc 2 - 3)

Fisherman's Horizon - By the save point thats above the solar panels and next to a draw point. (Disk 2 - 3)

Esthar - (Steer clear of here to save a lot of time) First of all she will be in the Presidential Residence, take the lift to get in, shes there when you get off. She will then often say that she is going somewhere far away, by that she means she is going to Launch Base, if you find her here then be prepared for a hard time, it took me 10 hours to get my Irvine card back from her here. (Disk 3)

Dollet - (Here you can lose cards to her in order to have her father make new ones) She will be on the Dollet Pub first floor by the save point. (Disk 2 - 3)

Trabia - Shumi Village Inn (Disc 2 - 3)

Winhill - Winhill Pub (Disc 2 - 3)

In order to have her father make a card when she is in Dollet you must first speak with her and select the option 'Ask about artist father', once you have done that she will specify the card you must lose to her.

The cards you will need to lose to her and the cards you will be able to win:

Minimog - Kiros

Sacred - Irvine

Chicobo - Chubby Chocobo

Alexander - Doomtrain

Doomtrain - Phoenix

(Any cards you lose to her in order for her father to make new ones can be won back from her little brother in the artists house (the one with the bone in the painting).

To find the cards you need to lose to her refer to the 'Rare Cards' section. 

Overnight Angelo Search Turtapod Trick

Have Rinoa in your party with Angelo Search learned, also do not have Gilagamesh. 

Step by step:

1. Find a turtapod, they are all over Esthar.

2. Kill any other monsters on the field so the Turtapod is alone.

3. Scan to see if Turtapod is above Lv. 30 use Tonberry's Lv. Up ability if you need to.

4. Wait until it defends or attack it with someone weak to make it defend. defence mode is when it hides with a tube out of the top.

5. Cast Confuse, this will rend it completely and utterly useless and unable to defend itself or attack you.

6. When its confused and in defence mode you can leave it for the night and when you awake you will find a nice supply of common - rare items have been found.
