No. Title Description
1 Resolve The group convinces Elmyra to let them go after Aerith, though breaking into the Shinra Building will be no easy task.
2 Intel Gathering The Avalanche team agrees to help Leslie in exchange for information about how to get topside. Still wary of Leslie, the party heads into the sewers.
3 Through the Underground Waterway The team detours around the collapsed rubble and arrives at the trunk line. Corneo's hideout is near.
4 The Hideout In front of the hideout, an Abzu Shoat steals what Leslie says is the key to the door. Cloud, Barret, and Tifa chase after tiny creature.
5 Recovering the Key The party defeats the Abzu shoat and recovers the stolen item, which leads Leslie to tell them about his past and his true intentions. With renewed resolve, the three head back to Corneo's hideout.
6 Fateful Decisions Cloud and the others have defeated Corneo's pet Abzu, but Corneo has slipped away during the commotion.
7 For the Reunion Leslie gives them grappling guns, and they wish each other luck in reuniting with their respective loved ones. Leslie walks off, and the three prepare to climb the wall.
8 Over the Wall Cloud and the others get over the wall and start climbing the Sector 7 plate. The Shinra Building is so far above that they still cannot see it.

Tips and Strategies

Side Quests (Odd Jobs)

Chapter14OddJobs.png

In Chapters 3, 8, 9, and 14, the player will have access to a set of Odd Job sidequests for that chapter. After you continue to a certain point in each chapter, you won't be able to complete any of the Side Quests any more. That said, the game will notify you at this point, so there's no worry of missing your chance on accident.

Sahagin

The Sahagin's Harpoon Hurl and Sahagin Curse attacks can turn your whole team into frogs, which can't use Magic and deal almost no damage. It'll spend some time charging these attack, so make sure to maintain a safe distance. Be sure to have Maiden's Kiss, which will cure the Frog status, and keep at least one party member with an ATB charge ready to use it.

Scissorclaws

Scissorclaws are highly resistant to physical attacks. Use Magic against them to take them down effectively.

When the chapter starts and you follow the sounds in the garden, Aerith was there and not Tifa. Wasn’t clear if it was a dream or if she was really there, but I think either Tifa or Aerith shows up there depending on which quests you did in chapter 9, the price of thievery quests or the Mireille bandit quest

In the Sector 6 Restricted Area map, the Ether at the top next to the Vending Machine is a mistake. It's just Shinra boxes there. I think it was confused with the Ether on the bottom left of that map, which is correct.
