To get Great Gospel, you first need to go through the first Gold Saucer area of the game. When you get the buggy, head north to Costa del Sol. Without leaving the Buggy, drive into Costa del Sol. Go to the ship harbor and talk to the man blocking the dock to the ship you took to get here from Junon. He will ask you if you want to stow away. Say yes and pay him his extremely small fee. You will be brought directly to Junon. Exit the first screen and head down the street until you see the helicopter landing pad with a sailor standing next to it. Talk to him and he will offer you the Helitaxi. Don't worry, it is free. Take the taxi outside of Junon, and you will appear in the buggy. Drive north to the Old Man's cave. You will need to cross a shallow river to get there, hence why you have the buggy. Talk to the man when you have 600-700 victories in battle and the last two digits match (i.e. 611, 622, 633, 644, etc.). He will give you a piece of Mythrill. Hop back in the buggy and drive into Junon.. pay the soldier gaurding the elevator to Upper Junon 10 gil to use the elevator. Head to the boat launching area. Go in the boat and stow away. You will appear in Costa del Sol. Now go to the Weapon Maker's shop outside of Gongaga. Give him the mythrill and he will give you a choice of either chests upstairs. Go up the stairs and take the one built into the wall at the end of the balcony. Voila! You have Aeris' ultimate limit break. Great Gospel makes you invulnerable, restores all HP/MP, and cures all status effects.
Beat The Ruby Weapon
For this you will need Nights Of The Round with at least 3 levels. Phoenix summon with at least 3 levels. Shield with at least 2 levels. Final Attack with any level. About 3 mastered HP and MP pluses (you might need more). 3 Enemy Skills with White Wind learned (to learn White Wind, go to the grassy area of Junon untill you fight a big green creature with wings. Manipulate it and have it use White Wind on your party).
You also need MP and HP absorb and the MIME command. Make sure you do NOT have the w-item, w-magic, and w-summon materias. Give everyone HP pluses untill it reaches 9,999 HP. Then do the same with the MP pluses until it reaches 999. Equip Cloud with the Ultima Weapon and give him the following materia.
Combine the Nights Of The Round with the MP absorb. Give him Phoenix with Final Attack. Give him mime with HP absorb. Make sure that you only eqip these matiera on the Ultima Weapon if their mastered. Give him shield and enemy skill. Give your other party members the other enemy skills. Make sure Cloud has an accesory that will protect him from Frog and Small.
Before you fight Ruby, get into a battle and have Cloud kill your other party members. Now go after Ruby. Start off by using shield on Cloud. Do NOT have Cloud bring the rest back to life.
Now have Cloud use Knights of the Round and just keep miming it until the Ruby Weapon kills you. When you come back to life, repeat the process until you've won.
NOTE: No matter what, do not use any limit breaks or regular attacks on Ruby. If Cloud becomes a toad, use white wind to heal him.
Beat The Emerald Weapon
If your having difficulty beating Emerald Weapon and you can't get the Knights of the Round consider using this method.First equip three gravity materia, one to each character, second if possible equip a mime materia to each character.
Next to one character, equip both the W-Magic materia and quadra magic materia joined to the characters gravity materia. Join an all materia to the other characters materia. Okay. Now when you go into battle all you do is use any level of demi on the Emerald weapon and it automatically does 9999 HP of damage to with every hit but at the end his HP will lower and a couple of hits with a moderately powerful summon spell and he's done for. Voila!
Cast Any Spell Three Times
To cast three magic spells in one round, first equip someone with a Magic Materia + "All" Support Materia. You'll also need Barrier Materia with the Reflect spell learned. When you enter battle, cast Reflect on the entire party, (your party). Then cast the magic spell that was connected to the "All" Materia on YOUR party.
Even though you cast the spell once, it will be reflected and returned to the enemy hitting for three times! And for the same price of the usual MP's. What's even better is that if you have W-Magic, you can cast that spell twice, or two different spells (both need to be connected to "All" Materia) hitting for six times!!!
For this to work you need the W-Item Materia. This Materia is available at the excavation site. Search the bottom layer at a place that looks a little like someone scuffed an "x" in the dirt. Equip the Materia, and in battle use it. Select the Item that you want to duplicate first, then select any other item.
After you select the second item hit cancel, and notice that the first item has increased by one. Just keep selecting the item, and canceling till you have all you need. The only downfall to this is that you can only duplicate items that you can use during battle.
To get to the before disc 3, simply ride up the hill with a black, gold or green chocobo.
Recover Missing Items
Did you miss something important? Fear not. Once you get to disc 3 you can recover anything by excavating for it in the Bone Village.

Gain Limit Breaks Easily
When in normal status use a "Hyper." This will let your limit meter go up faster, so you can use your old techniques more. The reason for this is that one way to get your limit breaks gained is to use your old techniques.
WARNING: When you use the "Hyper," your status changes to "Fury," which will lessen your hit rate.
Another way to gain your limit breaks is to defeat large groups of enemies. Try this: When leaving the Nibel Mountains and heading for Rocket Town, you should see a group of forests when you leave the mountains. Try engaging combat there, because sometimes you fight large groups of enemies there. Such as a group of six "Battery Caps," or sometimes five "Battery Caps" and one "Valron." This might help in getting your limit techniques also.
If you have the W-Item Materia, equip it and enter battle. Use the W-Item command and select your first item you want to use with the Circle button. Then choose your second item but do not use it. Select it so that cursors appear on the screen (either on you allies or your enemies) then cancel with the X button. Select again and make the cursor appear then cancel. Repeat the selecting and canceling of the second item over and over. Each time you do this the quantity of the first item will increase by 1.
