Tips and Strategies

This is a list of important things to do in the quest The Pauper Prince. Read on to find out which of them is crucial to proceeding.

  • In the beginning, Cindy will be giving you the Overworld Map, which will become a key tool for your survival. Refer to the map always when looking for magic sites (fire, thunder, ice) or when searching for a campsite.
  • Always choose to camp over staying at an Outpost or caravan camper, especially when you're short on gil to use on better things like weapons or items.
  • Sabertusks are always fast and like to circle around. Look to link up with your teammates when you find yourself cornered.
  • You'll also receive your first item from Cindy, but items are usually found on the ground in this location, as well as other outposts.
