Hi everyone,

Are there any items, marks, treasure, events, quests etc. that can only be done during a certain time during the game?  That is, is there anything that can be missed if you don't do it during a certain point in the game?

Please, no spoilers on gameplay or storylines!

Thanks so much!

pchimmy

PS - This game is HARD!!! and i'm loving it!

There's something of the reverse - you need to deliberately skip some chests (most of them within the first few hours) in order to get the best, or at least one of the best weapons easily. Check the GameFaqs cheat page to find out what you need to skip.

What the hell? Where's the logic behind that? There's nothing in the game itself that indicates that skipping chests would be a good idea?

*sighs*

I hate it when developers do things like that. Sure, hidden secrets is nice and all, but not when it's depending on totally random behavior like not opening any chests for the first part of the game.

Because I'm a completist, I restarted the game.  VERY annoying.

Besides this these chests, is there anything ELSE that can be missed?

Deliberate design feature. That, or they royally fucked up and totally ignored it from the demo, but I somehow doubt that.

Edit: As for the chests I'm not really sure.

I got the spear the other night..and didn't bother equiping it because I feel too overpowered anyway and unlike the best gun(Which being the hypocrit I am, I DO use) it didn't really feel like I earned it.

 Fighting through the dungeon I CLEARLY wasn't supposed to be at yet was a blast though.

I hate that too. I think FF12 was a very spectacular game, but some concepts in the game were poorly designed and extremely time-consuming.

Iím a Ďcompletistí too. I was sorry when Iíve heard about those chests, it wasnít explained anywhere. I didnít want to restart from zero because I was already too far in the game, and I think that even though FF12 was innovative with the battle system, the game is too much repetitive to play it again.

Besides, am I the only one to think that the abilities in the license board are just quite boring? I hoped to unlock more enjoyable abilities.
