No I didn't. I am actually enjoying it up to the last bit.
You've wasted your life.
Got any tips or any more sidequest i could be trying before
going into Sin?
NOTE: When I refer to "AP Weapon", I'm talking about a weapon with the
[Triple AP] + [Triple Overdrive] + [Overdrive->AP]
Your weapon could have another ability added, but an AP Weapon is essentially
configured with the aforementioned abilities.
Preperation Step One - Unlock One-Eye:
You can either choose One-Eye or Ultima Buster to unlock. One-Eye is a lot easier to unlock; he is also a lot easier to consisently kill. If you choose to unlock Ultima Buster, you must capture at least FIVE of EVERY monster. If you kill Ultima Buster, though, he could drop a weapon with [Triple AP],[Triple Overdrive], and [Overdrive->AP], all abilities you will need anyway. If you already have Ultima Buster unlocked, and you can kill him, try doing that and seeing what you get. You could get all the weapons you need right there. To unlock One-Eye, you need to capture:
4 Floating Eye, found at Mi'ihen Highroad
4 Buer, found at Thunder Plains
4 Evil Eye, found at Macalania (Snowy)
4 Ahriman, found at Mt. Gagazet
4 Floating Death, found at Omega Ruins
Preperation Step Two - Battle One-Eye:
When you battle One-Eye, you'll have a good chance of getting of getting
weapons with [Triple AP] on them. What you want is a weapon with [Triple AP] and two extra slots open. Battle One-Eye until he gives you what you need. Do this for as many characters as you want.
Preperation Step Three - Customize [Overdrive->AP]:
Next, you'll need to use ten Doors to Tomorrow to customize [Overdrive->AP] auto-ability onto a weapon. Luckily for you, these items are plentiful. You can steal them from Ultima Weaponor bribe some mech warriors. Bomb King in the Monster Arena will drop TWO Doors to Tomorrow if you overkill him. My favorite way of getting Doors To Tomorrow: unlock six Monster Arena Area Creations. That is by the far the easiest way. You'll get 99 Doors To Tomorrow from that,and it is considerably easy work. Use ten Doors To Tomorrow and customize [Overdrive->AP] on all your [Triple AP] weapons. There should now be one more slot open.
Preperation Step Four - Customize [Triple Overdrive]:
This is by far the hardest part of the entire trick. To customize [Triple
Overdrive] onto a weapon, you'll need to use thirty Winning Formulas. Winning Formulas can only be bribed from Sandworms or dropped by Ultima Buster. If you plan to bribe a Sandworm, you'll need 900,000 gil for fifteen of them. Make sure you save before you do it, incase something goes wrong. Ultima Buster will drop two Winning Formulas for an overkill. The easiest way to get a lot of Winning Formulas, although you can only do it once, is to unlock EVERY Area Creation in the Monster Arena. It may take some time, but your reward is the much needed quantity of 99 Winning Formulas. Use thirty Winning Formulas per weapon and customize three weapons (or more, if you can) with [Triple
Overdrive]. Now at least three weapons should have:
[Triple AP] + [Triple Overdrive] + [Overdrive->AP]
Preperation Step Five - Setting Overdrive Modes:
Set all of your characters to Comrade overdrive mode. If they do not have this mode, you will first need to earn it. Preperation Step Six - Unlock Don Tonberry:
To unlock Don Tonberry, you'll need to capture at least one of each of the
following enemies: Epaaj, Imp, Yowie, Thorn, Dark Element, Nidhogg, Valaha,Ghost, and Tonberry. The Tonberry and Ghost could be considerably elusive, so don't give up.
Preperation Step Six - Preliminary Don Tonbbery Battle:
The first battle against Don Tonbery is for show, literally. Equip your
characters with their AP Weapons. Then, take on Don Tonberry.
Hit Don Tonberry with each of your characters. After being hit, Don Tonberry counteracts with Karma. Appropriately named, Karma deals 100 damage per enemy you've killed. Sound confusing?
Tidus has killed 634 enemies.
Tidus would be damaged with Karma for 63,400 damage (634 x 100 = 63,400).
Wakka has killed 539 enemies.
Wakka would be damaged with Karma for 53,900 damage (539 x 100 = 53,900).
Yuna has killed 15 enemies.
Yuna would be damaged with Karma for 1,500 damage (15 x 100 = 1,500).
Now it's time to judge what character will be your sacrificial character. This character will need to take about 80,000 to 99,999 damage from karma. This character will also need to have a low HP, prefferably below 5000.
Whatever character you choose to be your sacrifice, change that character's overdrive mode to Stoic.
Preperation Step Seven - Raising Karma's Damage (OPTIONAL)
If your charactes are not being hit for enough karma (you'll need to be hit for at least 80,000 damage on a LOW HP character), you will need to raise their kill count. Now, you can either kill a lot of enemies normally, or you can use a trick.
The trick is rather simple. Choose the character that you want to raise the kill count on. Make sure that person attacks first in battle, automatically. You do not want to have to cast Haste. [Auto-Haste] would be splendid, as would [First Strike].
Once you're sure that your character will attack first in every battle, talk to the Monster Arena Owner. Continually press X. A turbo controller would work wonders, taped down on X.
So what does this do?
Basically, you'll constantly fight and kill Dingo, the first enemy on the the Monster Arena list. By mashing the X button, you'll be killing Dino over and over, raising your kill count.
99 Sphere Level Battle:
Now it's time to gain 99 Sphere Levels in just one match, after all that
one-time preperation. Phew. Luckily, the AP battles take only a minute or two. Make sure your AP Weapons are equipped.
With your sacrificial character on Stoic, and the other two characters on
Comrade, start the bout with Don Tonberry. The sacrificial character should attack Don Tonberry.
The low HP sacrificial character should be dealt at least 80,000 damage. By using Triangle, defend with the other characters. Attack Don Tonberry five or six times.
Once you've attack him five or six times, Flee from battle. Watch the AP sore into 99 Sphere Levels. Sweet.
