Tips and Strategies

1 Make full use of synergized attacks when facing difficult enemies.
2 Analyze the weaknesses of strong enemies and use that to your advantage.
3 Make sure to grab the Ribbon on B14 - Advanced Weaponry.
4 Get the 50000 points on Shinra Box Buster before moving on.

Use Synergized Attacks

Yuffie Windstorm Synergized (1).jpg

When Yuffie's attacks alone don't seem to be doing enough to damage or stagger enemies, making use of synergized attacks proves to be very effective.

How to Synergize

Assess Strong Enemies for Their Weaknesses

Assessing Enemy Weaknesses

Exploiting weaknesses of tough foes is essential, especially if you are playing on hard mode. If you are struggling against a miniboss be sure use the Assess Materia to check if it has an elemental weakness or if it can be affected by status ailments.

View Assess Materia

Pick up the Ribbon on B14 - Advanced Weaponry

Ribbon Location
The Ribbon makes its wearer immune to status ailments and it makes it harder for you to be interrupted when casting spells. Find this accessory by turning left immediately after entering B14 - Advanced Weaponry.

Ribbon Effect and Stats

Get the 50,000 Points in Shinra Box Buster Before Moving On

Shinra Box Buster EXP Up Materia.jpg

By clearing the most difficult challenge of this minigame, you will receive EXP Up Materia. This can help grind levels for subsequent playthroughs and is particularly useful if you plan on taking on hard mode. That being said, Yuffie and Sonon take fewer experience points to level up than the Cloud, Tifa, Barret, and Aerith.

Shinra Box Buster

Hard Mode Tips and Strategies

HardModeGuide9.jpeg

As is the case with the main game, before doing a hard mode playthrough you ideally want to be at level 50. Keep in mind that you cannot use items and MP does not recover at rest areas on hard mode. Fully upgrading Materia and weapons will also help minimize the risk of getting a game over.

How to Grind EXP and AP for Hard Mode

The fastest way to get to max level while also leveling up Materia is to change the difficulty to Easy, equip an EXP Up Materia and an AP Up Materia, and then repeat battles in the Shinra Combat Simulator.

How to Defeat the Projector

  • Defeat the Diabolic Creation
  • Focus on the Diabolic Creation's Arm
  • Bring antidotes
  • When you get an opening hit the Projector with everything you have.
  • Hard Mode Tip - Conserve MP: This boss comes directly before the final boss, and on hard mode you will need the MP against Nero. If you need to heal, it's best to use Chakra or Prayer to conserve MP.

How to Defeat Nero

  • Pressure Nero by staying aggressive and using synergized attacks

  • Summon Ramuh to deal high amounts of damage
  • Hard Mode Tip - Recommended Materia: HP Up, Healing, Revival, Chakra, Prayer, MP Up, Steadfast Block, ATB Stagger, and Synergy.
