Since when do you get a Katana called the sword of trials to unlock a Gsword weaponskill? >.> even the wiki has it. Id edit if i knew how. D:
More info please!!!

Perhaps you should include that the mobs have to be "Easy Pray" or higher in order for the WS points to be counted. Then maybe someone wouldn't waste 4 dam hours doing WS on "Too Weak" mobs. What a waste of time over a lack of information on such a "dedicated" FFX1 Website. >,<

Got the Sword Of Trials but dropped it accidentally. How can I get another? I talked to Gumbah but he won't give me another sword >.<

Am I the only one that thinks it odd that the NPC hands you a "katana" (according to the Walkthrough) for a Great Sword Weaponskill?
# May 18 2007 at 6:56 AM Rating: Decent
i took my "Katana" straight to caste Oztroja, took a bit. at times helped people get coffers in return of helping me make skill chains.
the scythe trial finished in no time as well as over 25k profit.
If anyone is doing this, at lv 72+ those yagudo are a joke, even if it says decent. xept the assasins= annoying ninjas.
I subed Samurai-store tp- meditate, along with chivalrous chain, store tp +1
(although needed parade gorget refresh most of time)
and 2 Attilas earings for an extra store tp+2, scored at least 3 weapon skills per fight.
all wile, fun times.

Your real base skill must be at 250, no merit it from 248 to 250 crap.
Just an FYI

You can not get the quest if you already have one WS quest activated.

I am working on this as well at the moment, it is a pain to find a good sc pt.i.e. DRG , WAR. for those LV 3 light sc to get 5 points. I did spiral all in one days time.

Grabbed my PLD buddy and we spammed LV 3 drk sc's for about 3 hours on EP mobs , broke the latent, then went to kill the NM.

This ws quest has me at 2 weeks so far lol.

How did you do darkness with Great Sword BEFORE you got Ground Strike?

Why do people keep ************ :/

Read carefully, please. He said this:

"GS quest sucks, this is hard. Scythe was much easier."

"[when I did scythe] I just did darkness skillchains with a pld buddy and knocked it out in 3 hours, then we killed the NM."

"This one has me at two weeks still"

Note the last sentence - if he had already killed the NM, he would have the quest finished. Obviously he was talking about the previous Scythe quest - in which swift blade >> cross reaper makes a nice darkness chain and yes, it's very easy to do.

Problems with quest

I've been trying to get this quest at lvl 72 and 250 plus GS skill. I'm now a Drk 74 and Gumbah still won't give me the quest.

I also checked if I had any current quests with Gumbah, and nope, I didn't. Anyone have any ideas why this is and how I can get this quest?

Take note: You can't use merits to 'cheat' your way up to activate the quest..

Let's say your GS skill is 244, you upgrade your Great Sword skill 3 times thus giving you 250 skill under the combat skills menu.

I tried this, Gumbah would NOT give me the quest.. orz
Wrong Info
# Jul 24 2005 at 11:39 AM Rating: Decent
Just to clarify. You must have 250 skill to get this quest. I was a lvl 72 drk with 249.8 skill and he wouldn't give me the quest (already had complted spiral hell quest) and I have hero fame in bastok. I went out and got my 0.2 for 250 skill and he gave me quest.

To summarize, you need lvl 72 (since great sword caps at 249 for lvl 71 drk) and 250 great sword skill to activate this quest.

Actually you need 250 Greatsword skill not 240...

To start this quest, I think you might have to be a DRK, since I heard it involved Zeid. Can anyone confirm this?
RE: Starting the quest
# Sep 15 2005 at 12:08 PM Rating: Good
DRK gets it at a lower level than either PLD or WAR. But Ground Strike can be used by all 3 jobs. WAR can get the quest at 74, and PLD's at 75. Sucks but oh well, strongest WS for GSword is Spinning Slash anyway :-D which can only be used by either DRK or PLD.

What jobs can get this WS?

Any job that is able to carry a GS is able to perform this WS as long as they follow this guide to learn it. Mainly, WAR/DRK and I think PLD are able to use this WS.

Simultaneous WS Quests
# Feb 14 2005 at 3:13 AM Rating: Decent
As a note, I don't think you can receive two WS quests at the same time; in other words, you can't start one WS quest without finishing (killing the NM , going back to the NPC, and receiving your WS skill) the first one. I currently am trying to do scythe and GS and it won't let me do both at the same time.

Someone verify this for me, thanks!

Yes, you will need to finish your Scythe WSNM Quest first. you cannot have both at the same time.

verified by Darkchild, DRK75 on Pandemonium. it is better (and easier) to do the Great Sword WSNM quest first, if you have the possibility, because you get to use your GS in exp parties more commonly than the scythe, which lets you get the 300 SC points rather quickly.

Ok seriously, if you take pride in your job do NOT use a Trials weapon in an exp party. Doing that makes <me> a sad panda.
More than one with quest..
# Jan 16 2005 at 11:06 PM Rating: Decent
How many times do you need to kill the NM if more than one person needs the quest?

Once and all check ??? afterward? Or once for each person that needs it?
RE: More than one with quest..
# Jan 17 2005 at 10:58 AM Rating: Decent
The other quests that involve spawning an NM, defeating it, and then checking the ??? for a key item allow the party to get it for just one kill.

So, you should be able to defeat it once to let everyone with this particular quest in the party complete the quest.
Fastest Way To Get Rid Of Lantent Effect

The best way to get rid of the lantent effect is to either make light or dark skillchain which is considered a "Level 3" Skillchain.
RE: Fastest Way To Get Rid Of Lantent Effect

At his point a {Warrior} is your best friend. {Mistral Axe} and {Spinning Slash} = {Light} will be a great way in a party to earn EXP and Remove latent affects.

light chain for greatswords then since spinning slash can close or open light chains.
some more info

to disable the "Latent effect" on the practice sword (Sword of trials) you have to do a certain number of skillchains on monsters that con Easy Prey or better. each type of skillchain gives "points", while a level 3 Skillchain gives most points (5?). you need 300 points accumulated (i'm not sure about this number). this is the same for all trial weapons.

the ??? to pop the WSNM tiger is located in a small oasis, some goblins are in that area which you can get TP from. the battle itself took about 5 minutes for a level 73 exp party and can be seen as a tough exp battle.
