Default Final Fantasy 1 Walkthrough With Dagger

Welcome to another edition of my walkthrough series. This thread will function similarly in structure to my Final Fantasy 6 topic. The intention is a nostalgic walkthrough for the one that started it all.... the original Final Fantasy on the NES. I will show how to beat the game using a balanced party (Warrior, Thief, Red Mage, White Mage) as well as spotlights along the way regarding spells and various other things. Unlike my Final Fantasy 6 topic, I will not be covering all of the several versions of this game that got released in the states. Too time consuming. My favorite despite all the remakes is still the very first one. Plus, who wouldn't want to try the one that created one of the most beloved RPG series of all time? This topic will be on the NES version only, though aspects of it could still help for someone playing a remake.

This legendary game was released originally as an NES title back in 1987 that did made it to the states in 1990. It has been remade numerous times including Final Fantasy Origins on the PSX in 2003, the Game Boy Advance in 2004, the PSP in 2007, and more. The Origins remake was a massive overhaul that game the 8 bit title a graphical and musical update to reach the quality of titles like FF4 or FF6. There were also new sidequests and new items added that were not in the NES. Again, I still prefer the original. That's just me. So we'll be going through that on here.

Similarly to the FF6 topic, I will be color formatting the text as I post.

Normal Events (Blue)
The main portion of the walkthrough will be in blue. This covers how to get through the main quests of the game. Item locations, how to advance through monster lairs, and stuff like that.


Optional Stuff (Purple)
Quests you do not have to do but are worth mentioning will be in purple.


Spells & Character Info (Green)
This will be where I pause the walkthrough itself for a spotlight on a new spell that has become available. Once the prestige classes become available through the class change quest, the details on these new classes will be in this color. Party analysis will be in green too.


Miscelaneous Notes (Olive)
Anything odd that is worth mentioning during your quest will be in this color.


Boss Battles (Red)
All the fights are gonna be in red. Scripted fights against monsters, boss battles, and all fights you must clear to beat the game will get discussed in this color. If you got stuck on a boss then look for posts in this color to find the strategy on how to win.




If you have any questions or comments, please post them in here:

http://forums.wrestlezone.com/showthread.php?t=271599

That thread may be in the WZCW section, but I take other questions in there too. Posting your comments/questions in there will keep this thread from getting spammed up.






Well? Shall we get started?

CHARACTER CLASS SPOTLIGHT: Fighter





Health: Very Good
Attacking: Very Good
Defense: Very Good
Casting: None (as Fighter) Low (as Knight)
Expenses: Very Expensive

My Biased Rank: 1 of 6

The best attacking type and a class I almost always use. He has the best Health, the best weapon proficiency, and the best armor proficiency. Fighters cannot cast until they turn into Knights late in the game. At that point they function like Cecil the Paladin in FF4 and can use basic White Magic. The main disadvantage to this class is how expensive they get. My favorite class. Very highly recommended. You only need one though. More than one Fighter gets really expensive, really fast. With a Fighter in the party then just about any group is protected if he is at the top of the formation. Just make sure you have a White Mage and/or a Red Mage in there to heal him when he's taken damage. A Thief as a backup attacker to help him with the fighting is also a good idea.

Thieves are really cool. They start out a lot like the Fighter only less expensive due to less weapon/armor proficiency. Thieves are better at running from battle than the other classes. Beyond that, there really is no reason to take a Thief instead of a Fighter unless you want to save money by not having to upgrade your weapons/armor as often. Now, once you get to the prestige classes and your Thief becomes a Ninja, that's totally different. He will gain access to basic Black Magic at that point and his armor proficiency becomes almost as good as the Knight in the end. An excellent alternative to the Knight by the final quest as well as an excellent backup attacker. He is my 2nd favorite class, not far behind the Fighter, and I use the Thieves pretty often. Thieves can replace the Fighter completely in the right party. Make certain that you have a White Mage in there to heal him, might want to have a Red Mage in there too for further assisting in healing. The Red Mage does get better equipment early on, though the Thief starts to become more useful after Elfland or so.

Alright, these guys are weird. Not really in a bad way, but they are different from any other class. They only need basic armor and some nunchucks at the first part of the game. By the time you're in the Elf area or at the latest for me usually by the earth crystal, you won't need to buy them armor anymore. Their base stat in defense will be higher and the armor makes their defense go down, depending on your level. It gets weirder. The same goes for their attack stat, at one point they won't need nunchucks either. Their base attack stat is higher and the nunchuck makes their attack go down. These guys need to spend most of the game running around attacking unarmed while wearing no armor other than their clothing, meaning do not equip them with anything when their stats are high enough. It is rather annoying to look after this. You need to de-equip him every time he levels up to see if he still needs his armor or his nunchuck. If the attack is better, then get rid of the weapon. If his defense is better, get rid of the armor. If neither are better, keep both. They never ever get any magic, but the upside is that they are the cheapest class. You only need one or two sets of weapons/armor for them. In the second half of the game they make the perfect backup attacker to a Fighter/Thief. Do NOT make them be the only attacker in a group of casters though, you're in for a world of trouble in that scenario. Fighters and Thieves are far better in the protection role. Black Belts are a bit annoying in the first half of the game, thus I prefer having a Fighter and a Thief as my attackers alongside two casters. Couldn't hurt to give them a try, I do not use them very often myself. Their weird stat growth is really the main reason they get ranked so low.

CHARACTER CLASS SPOTLIGHT: Red Mage





Health: Average
Attacking: Good early on, Average later
Defense: Good early on, Average later
Casting: Good
Expenses: Very Expensive


My Biased Rank: 4 of 6

The Red Mages are highly underrated. The weird thing about them is how they go from being the ultimate class at the start of the game (since they can do some of everything), to being one of the least useful at the end since the others have reached their max potentials. Still, Red Mages can do some of everything thus they make great backup casters and even decent backup attackers. Their armor proficiency is good for most of the game, though the Knight and Ninja have access to better gear than the Red Wizard at the end. There are two downsides to this class. The first being he is not the best at anything. He is outclassed in attacking by the three attacker types, outclassed in defense by the Knight and Ninja at the end, and outclassed by the two dedicated casters at magic. The biggest downside of all is how expensive these guys are. You have weapons, armor, AND magic to purchase for them. I would not recommend more than one in the same party otherwise it takes FOREVER to get the money for what they need. Have a White Mage and either a Fighter or a Thief so that your Red Mage is helping someone in their field rather than having him be your main attacker (very bad idea) or your main caster (also a bad idea). A fun class with the right party.

CHARACTER CLASS SPOTLIGHT: White Mage

No party is complete without a White Mage. The Red Mage is a suitable replacement at first, but by the end there are spells he would not have access to. Healing is so highly crucial and the White Mage is the best at it. She is the second weakest, losing only to the Black Mage in Health and equipment proficiency. White Magic is also better than Black Magic overall. You can restore Health Points, buff against elemental attacks, revive, attack undead, and there is even a powerful offensive spell at the end of the game. Red Wizard does not get this spell yet White Wizard does. I'll go as far as to say that the last couple of quests are nearly impossible without a White Wizard so have one in your party and complete the class change sidequest so she can use the magic exclusive to White Wizards. Buying magic can be expensive though not as bad as the Fighter or the Red Mage overall. Trivial note, this is the only class in the original game that is generally considered to be female.
