EASY way to get Venus Sigil (Thunder Plains mini-game.)

Ok, I HAD to write this (and I'll probably spam a little by posting it in two or three other spots because of importance.) I found an 'EASY' way to dodge lightning!
In the second main area, (after the travel agency) right when you start out - walk northwest until you come to the lake in this area. Where I stood was the corner of the lake (where you could either walk up-left diagonally on the d-pad to go towards the west side of the plains, or right/up-right on the d-pad to go towards the east and north ends of the plain respectively.) Lightning here dodges as follows: first bolt in about 8-10 seconds, followed by a 2-3 second interval 2nd bolt. It may sound a little odd at first, but once you get the timing down it is SO easy! I dodged, waited a few seconds and dodged again; ran back to the edge of the lake again and waited a few more seconds and repeated. Doing this, I was able to dodge 230 bolts in a little over 45 minutes (I think, I didn't time myself - but will next time) all this while STILL FIGHTING! I was able to capture all the fiends in the calm lands AND get the sigil very easily.
Secondly - I wanted to note this because in addition to the sigil, you also get a) 2x MP sphere for dodging 20, b) 3x Str. sphere for 50, c) 3x Hp sphere for dodging 100, and d) 4x Megalixer for 150. I'm currently working on a Tidus-only challenge, and those Str. spheres and Hp spheres will come in handy - especially early on in the game! Best of luck (you won't need it!)

Wow. =O

I knew about it, but I never got it to work, because I didn't get the timing right, because I couldn't dodge them. Since you know the seconds, you know what to expect, so it's really easy. Nice find.

Not for the weapon, for the SIGIL.

The weapon is at Baaj Temple - remember? J/K. I'm sure you meant that.

Yeah, so it's not just getting the Sigil...its also fighting, and - if you have a capture weapon on it, you can collect 10X all 8 monsters in the plains in 45 minutes. Good for some sphere levels too. So

Wow! I guess the catcher chocobo game was a little rough. It took me about as long to beat that as it did to get the Sigil

RPG'er for life!

It took me half an hour without fighting to do the dodging the lightning thing. I hated doing it too.

Re: EASY way to get Venus Sigil (Thunder Plains mini-game.)

I wonder if you get anything for dodging over 1000 bolts of lightning?

Not trying it though.

Re: EASY way to get Venus Sigil (Thunder Plains mini-game.)

I actually found it pretty easy to dodge them. In the beginning it was hit all the time but then after a short while you learn the trick to when to push. Felt like I could go on forever but didn't see any point in doing more than 200.

Re: EASY way to get Venus Sigil (Thunder Plains mini-game.)

I'm on my second game of ff10 and I attempted the lightning dodging again. I was well pissed off when I got to 120 and then I fumbled with the x button and got hit by lightning.

I am going to attempt it again tonight.
