While watching a practice run by Essentia yesterday I learned that in the Japanese version of FF6 you can equip any item. Turns out that one of the best things to do is buy a bunch of Autocrossbows and put them on your characters as a shield, helmet or armor. It gives ridiculously high defense and magic defense and makes a speed run even smoother. I am not speed running, but I thought I would play around with it anyway during this play of FF6. Since I was wondering what kind of thing I would do this time, I think I am going to try the “CES” route. That is, no other characters will be picked up in the World of Ruin other than the three that must be picked up: Celes, Edgar and Setzer.
This should be interesting - bugged out armor or no.
