    During the hunt festival ending cutscene, Montblanc gave the wrong name (Monica for Ward), the rest of the scene went normally (Ward's portrait answered).

    I keep getting a ping near the town entrance, but I don't know what it's for (Giving potions to Fire maybe?)

    During the leadup to the Gravity brave battle, you take unavoidable damage as you're getting sucked in, starting the battle at around half health (on a level 80 hero).

    It's possible to start arena battles outside the arena (that is, on the other side of the barrier). The barrier does no damage to the enemies.

    After Shinra's frogs are gone, the effect still plays on all four frogs' locations.

    Started McBurn's challenge outside the arena, it gave me an instant win. Did it again (there should be a timer for it), and now he can't be killed even with whosyourdaddy, and the challenge doesn't seem to end either. Had to let him kill me to finish it. This happens even when he gets a ping.

    McBurn the questgiver should be hidden during his fight.

    How do I unlock the two cups that come between the Islands and the Lothlorien one?

    Demon Banishers (Galadriel & Celeborn arena fight) tooltip is incomplete.

    During the Echele bossfight:
    ** The Icy Realm teleport should drop you closer to the boss fight, or at least the creeps should stop spawning between the teleport and the boss.
    ** I don't know how many forms Echele went through, but I'd only managed to kill 11 of the Braves. Does that change anything or does he go through all the zodiac forms regardless of whether they were already beaten?
    ** Since the final one says it's Echele's final form, it should look different from all the preceding ones.

    So how do Maechen's hints work? Clicking them doesn't ping anything.

    Killed the Dark Ifrit, and got the message "Q51 Failsafe: 3".

    After playing with the 0.9.6 map, and then 0.9.6.1, I noticed a couple of things that I can't figure out:


    Question 1:
    What do I need to do to get the armory upgrade?
    Edit: I figured this one out :)
    As soon as I researched the tools upgrade to level 10 I got an achievement called "Weaponsmith" and the armory was unlocked.
    Judging by the name "Weaponsmith" this would probably happen with any of the weapon research upgrades.


    Question 2:
    Is there a friendly character whose name begins with the letter X? This is for one of the new quests involving a diary.
    For that quest I was able to find someone for every other letter of the alphabet.
    Edit: Still searching the map. Has anyone found a friendly character who can be chronicled under the letter X?

    Yeah, the diary quest is beatable.

    Look just north of Fire the potion merchant.

    To unlock the new classes you need to complete the final main story quest.

    Hello Karifean
    Big time fan of your map played all your versions up to 0.9.3 and i love your work (Well at least the majority of it)
    I find it important to estabilish this, i love the map and wish to see you strive
    However after a multitude of what a i can only call idiotic decisions i decided that enough is enough and have some very harsh criticism on how you handle one aspect of the map

    Patrol Command and grinding in general

    Lets adress the elephant in the room : The patrol command
    Admitabbly i dont think this will have any effect as i believe you have heard many complaints over the years however i dont anymore and i'll just say it
    Removing patrol is U-S-E-L-E-S-S and it only hurts the map
    Its useless because you can still afk farm on high traffic areas, i did it on many versions and it still works in a few spots
    Even if it didnt its still pointless why do you want increase the grind of the map ? Grinding is boring, no one likes it and people are always finding a way to circunvent it
    Theres no challenge on it either you just do the same shit over and over again
    Personally when i first played i played at my own pace and avoided playing with high lvls
    It took me almost an month to fully level up and find all secrets
    Now however i want to see the new content and fast grind my way to fight the superbosses and really theres nothing wrong about it; I dont have time to play your map in perpetuity theres things i like to do and other games i want to play as well
    I got to ng5 on this version, it was boring but most people wont have the same disposition as i have
    This is the kind of the decision that will ensure that your map is only popular between a very small playerbase
    Unless thats what you want
    If thats what you want then i rest my case, its your map and you handle how you like it
    I would still hold complete bewilderment as to why your developing a map for the least ammount of players to enjoy
    This decision has no value (It doesnt benefit either casual or veterans of the game) and its also useless in terms of stopping afk farming (Which is an acceptable thing to do
    especially on those newer version with more than potentially 13 thousand levels to up)
    The only thing this does is increase the grind which is boring and provides no challenge (Aside from the mental challenge of having to farm even longer)


    DeathBringer Nerf

    I wont harp too much about it because its very similiar with the point above so i just briefly touch on it
    This decision is stupid as it merely increases the grind time which is not good for the game due to how much grindy the map alredy is
    If you nerfed deathbringer but added an even better version then it could become a good decision, as players could make a route to get it as early as possible to start grinding heavily
    But as it is its stupid and pretty much driven on emotion (WHAT ? PEOPLE ARE FAST FARMING ? NOT HERE SON; PATCHED)
    If you do those 2 things i absolutely guarantee you that not only the popularity of your map will increase and your LOYAL players will REJOICE

    New game plus
    I love this new feature however its too grindy
    Theres more than 13 thousand levels for the player to potentially grind and this is just too much
    I went ahead with some math to give you some perspective
    I used an lvl 1 calculator on Dark Dragon Marshes with the following items : Genji Gear, Tournesol, Interceptor Guard, Genji Mask and a growth egg, as well as a Gaya using Protect and Deprotect from books
    It took me 2 hours to reach lvl 99
    Now we take this average and multiply vs 115 (23 jobs vs 5)
    120 minutes vs 115 = 13.800
    Lets convert this to hours shall we ?
    139800 divided by 60 = 230
    So yeah, reaching new game plus 5 would take you an average of 230 hours of repetitive gameplay, or 9 days if you prefer it that way; Thats assuming you start at lvl 1 with the gear i described (Or better gear)
    In reality it takes much longer than that
    My suggestion
    Have only 3 new game plus with the following bonuses
    Ng 1 - +1 Stats each 5 levels- 10% Extra exp
    Ng 2 - +3 Stats each 5 levels- 15% Extra exp
    Ng 3 - +5 Stats each 5 levels - 25% Extra Exp
    The last ng giving more bonuses as a way to congratulate the player on the achievement
    I believe this will still give enough grind to give a sense of pride and accomplishment while alleviating it a bit
    I know this time isnt realistic but getting the exact time it takes to get to lvl 99 would be a lot of work, and it merely serve us to give us an average
    Thats it from the ''Harsh criticism''

    I also want to talk about the vote in the beginning of the game
    The game should choose the majority of the votes instead of trying to find a middle ground, as it usually end up screwing the lobbies forcing people to remake more often

    Thats it
    We love you Karifean as well as the map you develop however im not going to coddle you and pretend its all ok when you do these bad decisions
    Nobody likes grinding; Thats why people theorize the fastests ways to bypass this in other games, this is BORING and if you plan on padding the game with it youre going to ensure your map is only played by its small (But loyal) player base
    Its been many years since you first removed the patrol command; I sincerely hope you matured enough from that time to make the correct decision for your players (Both casual and veterans alike)
    In sum : STOP TRYING TO DICTATE HOW PLAYERS PLAY THE GAME : Allow players to play however they want (Be it at a slow pace completing quests, or fast grinding to fight the superbosses)
    Happy new year

    Hello Karifean,
    Love the map. Having a potential issue which may be that I am missing something or maybe its because I am playing the reforged beta but the mage upgrades in the house is empty. (Haven't played previous versions to know if this is intended)
    I have checked this thread and the wiki to no avail so if you or anyone else knows if this is expected or a bug and if its only in reforged and could let me know that would be awesome. I haven't be able to get this (and other custom game maps) to appear in my original version of TFT.
    Thanks in advance and again great work.

    Yeah this is a Reforged bug as far as I understand it; transformation abilities such as the House's form change only change to the default target unit. If I remember right I think in our case, the House changes into a gargoyle since it's based on the Stone form ability. I kinda expect Blizzard to fix this before Reforged goes live but if not I'll have a fix release up soon.

    To confirm the mage house bug, yes the full release fixed it. However there's one major issue with reforged right now. The Eye of Jenova cannot be picked up. It's unclickable, you can kind of select it with group-select, but there's no way at all to pick it up, thus no way to progress. Something about the new model probably?

    Anyway just letting you know, should be an easy fix I imagine.

    A quick workaround is using the Spirit of Gaya's Gather Items skill to have it put in your House's inventory, that allows you to put it in your hero/spirit directly. But yeah, will replace that as well as the chocobo nuts using the same model.

    I'm a little concerned regarding this map's future. Recently, with the release of Reforged, Blizzard made a change to their editor's policy stating that custom maps can no longer feature third-party IPs. Any map that violates this policy is apparently going to be taken down and if map makers don't comply with Blizzard, I hear they could even issue bans. Since this map features the Final Fantasy IP, there is a good chance that Blizzard will eventually take it down if they enforce this new policy. Because of that, I was wondering how this project is going to proceed. Are you going to keep posting updates and hope that Blizzard doesn't go ahead with the takedown policy? Otherwise, are you going to have to go through a re-tooling phase to get rid of all references to Final Fantasy to keep this map going under the new policy? I apologize for bringing up such a depressing topic, but I was kind of worried since this map was a part of my childhood and it would be an absolute travesty to see it gone forever due to a policy change.

    That was already the case in Warcraft 3's EULA in 2003 :

    "Your Content shall not: (a) infringe any third party intellectual property, other proprietary or publicity/privacy rights; (b) violate any law or regulation; (c) be defamatory, obscene, or pornographic; or (d) contain any viruses, Trojan horses, cancelbots, worms, time bombs, or other computer programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept, or expropriate any system, data, or personal information.

    Yet nothing happened to the map all these years.

    Phew, that's good to hear, I guess the Reforged situation isn't quite as bad as I initially thought. Granted, it still sucks that Blizzard is now trying to claim 100% ownership of every custom map as a response to DOTA, but at least this map can keep going.

    So wierdly i dont find anything online about the gamebraking bug where you cant pick up the Eye of Jenova from the Arena to progress the Story but i talked to multiple players in the Game they have the same issue. So whats up with that? i really want to play this game further.
