Hint: Get Edgar's Air Anchor

Unlock Nintendo DS
Go to the Kefka Tower in the World Of Ruins. Climb to the very top, defeat the Magimaster and get the gem box. Get down (an easy way is to give MOG the Moogle Charm relic which prevents random battles) and leave the tower. Save the game, then re-enter the tower. Walk inside, then go up the stairs. Enter the first door and move to the right of the chest. Press A, then leave and go down one flight of stairs to the door which just was enabled beside the chest.

Unlock Nintendo DS
Do four magic attack's: by equiping a gem box.Then go to your magic spell list and do any spell then cast quick then cast any other two spells after. dead creauters and bosses die tip: by using a phenoix down or green cherry. E.G. in the sealed gate cave everthing die's with a green cherry except the scropion thingies called ceolocites I think. This is another place to gain levels in the good world, but you should only gain terra's and lockes levels here, because after you go to thamassis evry body's levels should go up to there's. but the only way to get the most experience in the cave is to bring only locke, and terra, and to turn one of them to stone. Also use green cherry's or phenoix down's on the enemy's.

After you get reserect go to leo's grave and use it and he will join your party. It takes along time, but its totally worth it because General Leo Kicks Ass.
When you get Edgar in the world of ruins, go to Figaro Castle. Keep moving north until reaching the room with the Chancellor. When first entering the room, go three steps north, then all the way to the right. Go north again to arrive at a door. Enter and talk to the man.

Talk to a man at that location to buy cheap Bio and Noise Blasters. The same thing can be done on the left side to find cheap items.

Make your way back to the beginning where Shadow should still lying down. Do not touch the save point at the beginning of the island, because Shadow will disappear. Talk to Shadow and he will join you. Return back to the statues. After Kefka kills the Emperor and hits Celes, another Shadow will appear and traps Kefka in the statues while your party, including the first Shadow, will still be there wounded. *Note: This trick works best when Shadow is the leader of the party.

Go into the "Config" screen from the menu and select "Memory". Set Edgar to "AutoCrossbow", Banon to "Health", and the other two to "Attack". Enable the turbo feature and keep it on for a few hours. In a few hours you should be at level 30-35. It takes awhile to get to level 99, but it is the easiest way at that point in the game.

An easy way to kill most bosses, including all the dragons, is done with this simple trick. First you have to cast Vanish on your enemy, then cast Doom or X-Zone. If you do not have Doom or X-Zone, use Mog's Dusk Requiem Dance until he uses Snare.

Continue to do this, eventually send a letter, a record, some tonic, another letter, and a Book. After sending the book, sleep in the inn one more time, then talk to the soldier.
