Final Fantasy 12 - How to get the zodiac spear



advertisement

The zodiac spear is the most powerful weapon in the game.
It has an awesome attack of +150 and like all spears, +8 evasion.
To obtain the zodiac spear, you must not open chests in these four areas:

1) Treasure chest in Lowtown, outside of Old Dalan's place
2) When sneaking into the palace (Before getting the Goddess Tear), there are several chests in the Cellar. Do not open the two chests in the southeast corner.
3) All treasure chests in the Confiscatory (the place where you get your weapons and armor back after being captured)
4) In the Phon Coast, later in the game, there is an island with 16 chests all near each other. The 4th chest that must NOT be opened is among these, so it is best to leave them all alone. They only contain Gil anyway.

If you didn't open any of those chests, the zodiac spear will be the Necrohol of Nabudis.

Here's a video showing you where to go in the Necrohol of Nabudis:

Is there anyother way to get the Zodiac Sphere, other than not opening these chests? I am way past those parts, and I know I opened those chests, all of them.:(( And I was really hoping to get this, because I am at the very last part in this game. By the way, it's extremely difficult. You have to battle four bosses in a row that cast Quickenings much like ours. No save crystals, no time to heal up.~x(
Please tell me if there is another way. Contact me at blackveiledemily@yahoo.com. I really need this Zodiac Sphere!

Can't remember where it was, but one guy posted on how to get it without avoiding the chests and without cheating, said you had to use the a glitch, or something and said you could get unlimited Zodiac Spears

There's a relatively easy way of getting the Zodiac Spear. Just work your way through the rare monster hunts. There's 80 altogether, and 31 of them drop trophies. Go to the hunt club in the Phon Coast after you've completed the Archades storyline, and you'll be able to find the Trophy monsters. There's a very good guide on ff12sector.net; it'll tell you the loactions of all the rare monsters.
Anyhow, when you have collected all 31 trophies, return to the hunt club. The 3 bangaa will take your trophies from you. First give 10 to Stok (the yellow one), then 10 to Blok (red) and finally 10 to Atak (green). Talk to the Huntmaster to confirm the winner, then talk to the Outfitters. There should be an item called Fortune's Favour, or somthing like that. The price tag is 999,999 gil, but it contains a Zodiac Escutcheon AND a Zodiac Spear.

Ok all of my characters are all lvl 57,57,56,56,56,56, and im on the last part of the game, my Vaan is complete with his licence board and the others are getting there, if you want levels get 2 Embroider Tippet, 2 Golden Amulets, and 2 of what ever to when you want to go through with a leveling streak equip the Embroider Tippet and your two lowest (if all the same level go by lowest Exp) and the 2 Golden Amulets on the to with less in their licence board, I have 2 bubble belts so I have two back of characters for hunts, bosses, sidequests, etc... so do that and you will be higher enough level to beat the ending with no problem

I was following a walk through (to assure complete the game to its maximum potential) and it said that i i only had to leave the left one out of the two alone in the cellur, so i grabed the right one. Does that mean it was wrong and i fucked my chances orrr?

Jeez guys... I beat that game soooo easily. All i used for the last bosses were ultima blade(which isn't really that good), save the queen and a lot of holy and scathe spells. Besides think about this, the best katana masamune is better with genji gloves then zodiac spear is because of its amazing combo rate. It doesn't matter if the zodiac spear is strong because damage caps at 9999 but if you do a combo attack say 9 times with 5k or more per hit with katana and there is a high chance of doing so all the time i think that's better. By the way anyone like Destroy all humans?
