Re: how do i beat Neo X-death?

ah yes, neo exy.....hes tough. almost as tough as my beloved zeromus...

well it all depends. what jobs are you using? what levels are your team? late 30s is ok, 40s would be better. (and anything higher of course.)

i always use summoner, white mage, and time mage. plus all people as mimes, so you can mime throwing a magishuriken. (or anything else for that matter...thats why i think using mime makes it too easy...but only to me.) since the battles count as one battle, golem and haste 2 will still stay on your party.

also...you can just use !mix mixing holy water(revivify) and a maidens kiss to berserk x death's first form, and by winning the first x death, youll just win both battles. (its hard to explain, youll have to try it to find out... )

hope that helps...

Re: how do i beat Neo X-death?

For those who are not rushing through the game, I'm pretty sure you took
the time to master your jobs. To make the battle easier, it's good that
you have mastered, AT LEAST, your Knight, Thief, and Sorcerer for your
physical attackers. For your magic casters, you should have gotten all
the highest level spells for each mage (it's not necessary to master all
of them). 'White6', 'Black6', 'Time6', 'Summon6' and 'Blue'. Mastering
the Red Mage will let you learn 'X-Magic', which will enable you to cast
2 spells in one turn. Mastering the Dancer is indispensable for an
easier battle because it will allow you to uequip the ever useful
'Ribbon'.

For your physical attackers, you may want to use these set-up for the
Bare job:

* Double Grip + Shot (X-Fight)
* Magic Sword + Shot (X-Fight)/ 2-Sword

For one of your magic casters, you may want to use these set-up for the
Mime job:

* X-Magic + Time + Summon

Note: Unfortunately, Mime can't use 'Ribbon'.

For the other magic caster, you may want to use these set-up for the
Bare job:

* White + Blue ('White' spell user should be protected with 'Ribbon')

You can immediately cast 'Condemn' on Target 4 (Back) to finish it off
after the countdown. It's quite useful considering that Target 4 has the
highest amount of HP of all the 4 parts. That's one less target to worry
about. Your X-Magic user should cast 'Haste2' and 'Golem'. 'Blue' magic
user should use 'Guardian'.

Like the first strategy, 'X-Fight' for physical attackers, 'Goblin
Punch' for 'Blue' spell user and 'Bahamut' for Summoner. It should be
enough to finish X-Death, once and for all, OR

Make a party of mages. The first two should use the Bare class:

* White + Time
* White + Blue

The other two should use the Mime job:

* X-Magic + Summoner + Time
* X-Magic + Summoner + Time

Note: Equip 'Gold Hairpin' to lessen you MP consumption.

The 'White' magic user is in Bare class so your healer is safe from most
status ailments. The battle should, as usual, start by casting 'Haste2'
and 'Guardian'.

Your offense revolves around taking advantage of the 'Quick' spell of
the 'Time' ability. Once you've done it, you have two consecutive turns.
With the 'X-Magic' ability, you have a total of 5 CONSECUTIVE ATTACKS!
To make good use of this, summon 'Bahamut'. With his 3000-3300+ for the
first form and 3500-3800+ damage for the second form. So, you should
have an attack pattern like these for your 'X-Magic' users:

Turn 1: X-Magic --> 'Quick' , 'Bahamut'
Turn 2: X-Magic --> 'Bahamut', 'Bahamut'
Turn 3: X-Magic --> 'Bahamut', 'Bahamut'

Using this strategy, a single 'X-Magic' user can deal at least 15000 HP
of damage for the first form and at least 17500 HP of damage for the
second form.

The two Bare job users should focus in keeping your fortifications on
and HP up. They should also act as 'Elixir' users for our two 'X-Magic'
users. Just keep on using these and victory will soon be yours!

Re: how do i beat Neo X-death?

It was originally released on the Super Famicom (SNES), with fan translations via emulation for people to play. Then a port for the Playstation with Final Fantasy VI on Final Fantasy Anthology Collection was released. There is also an in-development port for the Game Boy Advance, Final Fantasy V Advance.

Re: how do i beat Neo X-death?

Okay heres the Looooooong way if ur playing it on an emulator and have used all ur gill on stupid mobs (like i did).

Speed the game to maximum and master all the jobs, then the last fight will get pretty easy once u buffed up and all that.
