Which was your hardest Sigil to get?


Mine were by far the Sun Sigil (Tidus) and the Saturn Sigil (Kimahri).


I'm pretty sure most of us will have a similar answer :P

Saturn sigil caused me the most heartache.

I didn't mind lightning-dodging to get the Venus and I liked playing blitzball, so Wakka's wasn't a problem either.

Yeah, I never had a problem dodging lightning. I think I had 2 false starts before I pulled it off. I played the hell out of Blitzball. The hardest thing was leveling Wakka up to the rest of my team (he starts at lvl 3?!?!?).

Kimahri's wasn't horribly difficult, either, but I have no compunction about using maps. I posted them in this forum, if anyone cares to look for them.

Sun Sigil and Saturn Sigil, definitely. The latter was actually way harder for me to get than the former. I have no idea why people have an easier time with the butterfly minigame than the chocobo race.

Personally, the only hard part about the butterfly courses is that funky little turn right at the end.

There's a video on YouTube to get the Saturn Sigil, no worries.

Me, definitely Sun Sigil. Square needs to know how to make the game enjoyable, but not too hard that only the people with good reflexes can win. -_-

I found every sigil easy apart from the lightning dodging (Venus Sigil) since I done the bird thing on my 6th try, and the rest was cake.

The venus sigil. I got like 168, then I screwed up and i threw the controller at the tv. That really pissed me off.

Getting Wakka's sigil was easy, because my team is basically rigged.

The Sun sigil was extremely frustrating but I managed to pull it off after about 5-10 trys

The Saturn sigil was a bastard to get because on the same turn near the end, every single time, I would hit the same goddamn butterfly that cost me the second i needed xD

That damn Saturn Sigil for Kimahri. Actually, I never did get it and eventually gave up, as I don't like using Kimahri in battle all that much, actually. All the others I got, the Sun Sigil being the second hardest and the Venus the third. The chocobo mini-game I had trouble with, but did eventually get after, oh, a couple hours or so. But the Saturn Sigil, no way. Butterfly-catching was a nightmare.

The chocobo one was the only one I got. After learning the methods to get some of the others (the butterly catching and the lighting dodging) I just decided not to.

C'mon, chase butterflies? I know minigames are not always supposed to make sense but I do have my lines drawn.

I decided to play through it again (For the 10th time) and I found some very interesting story line parts that I missed my first few times through. You need alot of logic to put the together the whole storyline. That's why it's my favourite FF game.

Ive been playing the game through again and im trying to get the sigils at the moment. Last night I tried Kimhari's one with the butterfies but im having some probems. I managed to get 7 without hitting the red butterflies 3 times, but all was in the box was a teleport sphere. Is there something else that im doing wrong???

I haven't played for a while, but I remember there being two different areas for the butterfly game. If you're playing international, then I don't know, since I don't have that.

Yeah its ok now I realised that I had to do both areas. I have it now. Thanks anyways.

Venus Sigil without a doubt. 200 Lightning strikes. I still haven't managed it yet. I've heard there's a glitch where you go north and dodge 5 or something then south and then north and get hit and it appears inside the chest outside the agency. Anyone know if there is such a glitch?

Agent0042
11-03-2007, 01:55 AM
Lightning dodging isn't so bad. I don't know about that glitch, but all you need is patience and a reasonably decent sense of timing. As long as you don't get jumpy and hit to dodge when there's no lightning coming, then you should be good to go. Focus your mind, free yourself from distractions.

Sun Sigil is far and away the worst. That has got to be the most poorly designed mini game in the whole series.

The venus sigil is the hardest for me. In six years I still haven't gotten that one. Lightning dodging makes me nervous as hell. I made it to 91 dodges when I tried to crack my toe and got struck. I figured if I can't even make it half way I'd better just give it up.

Sun sigil is the second hardest. I got it once my first time playing FFX. I think it took me almost all afternoon. I've only tried a few times since then because that game is so infuriating.

Kimahri's is hard, but I eventualy memorized where the red butterflies are. The worst part was reaching the seventh butterfly and having the clock run out before I could touch it. After that happened ten times, I finally got it.

Now I'm working on making my own weapons for Lulu and Tidus since 20 hours of side quests is less frustrating for me than chocobo racing and dodging lightning. =)

I think Tidus', Lulu's, and Kimarhi's sigils are the hardest...though I haven't really attempted Lulu or Kimarhi because I never use them... and with Tidus', I think there is a system to where the balloons are placed...

For Example, at the start, if two balloons are in front of trainer, you will get hit by almost every fucking bird and miss almost every balloon and get a really shitty time.

If there is a balloon or two in front of you, you will probably get hit by less birds and get more balloons and a better time depending how well you know the course/ and where the birds fly down and out...

Tidus's Sigil was surely the hardest one for me.

adamantium
11-15-2007, 04:31 AM
I dont get why people find tidus and lulu's sigils so hard to get. I mean the chocobo moves itself along the course. All you have to do is tap right or left when you come up to a balloon. Yes the birds can be annoying but after a few tries you develop a knack for it.

As for lulu's, I find it the strategy of dodging and then running to the same spot that the lightning just struck is the best. The lightning will strike within 2-4 seconds each time. I dodged 268 bolts then couldnt be bothered anymore. A trick for it is to go to a spot where you have to run slightly up a hill, dodge and he will jump back down the hill. Keep running to the same spot and you wont have to worry about the camera doing annoying things like move angles etc.....which can be very distracting when you are trying to concentrate on the flashes.

Peace out.

Sun sigil because it was so frustrating to finish between 0 and 2 just becasue of missing out 1 baloon. i didnt bother getting lulu's.

I still have gotten the Venus Sigil. I got too lazy to get most of the Sigils anyway. I think there's an item to eliminate random battles. I got too lazy to get that and couldn't handle dogding lightning and fighting at the same time.

To get "peaceful" items which allow 'no encounters' the best way is to go to the cave where you meet yojimbo and catch a ghost with the items from the monter arena. Then keep fighting him over and over and he will eventually drop a ring or something. This is by far the best way to get one. Once you get it, its so much easier to complete quests cause after a while the worst possible sound is that damn glass smashing.

Agent0042

Alternatively, the monster you fight at Ba'aj Temple will sometimes drop a weapon with No Encounters. This is a mistake in the game, No Encounters is normally supposed to be on armor.

Whatever the one is where you fight Yunalesca. I forgot to get it first time round and had to beat Dark Bahamut to get it -.-

I gave up with the Saturn Sigil and Venus Sigil. Those butterflies can die with the forest. The lightning needs to strike somebody else. *sore loser*

That sir, was the Sun Crest, not a sigil. :3

After reading the thread, I never came to figure WHY the Sun Sigil is so hard to get. o_o
It never took me more than 30minutes...maybe my game got rigged in a good way? Anyway, I really can't say too much since I still haven't got the Saturn and Venus Sigil seeing as I always neglect Lulu and Kimahri at the end of the game anyway. So the hardest would be one of those since I haven't got them. :x

rainbow -- you probably just had a quicker learning curve for the chocobo game, that's all. I wasn't awful at it, but it still took me longer than that.

I have the sun sigil that I found easy.

It was the Venus Sigil that was a pain. I would always get to about 195 then cock up and it was so frustrating.

Just had to throw this in. I attempted to gain to sun sigil last night, i succeeded on my forth attempt at racing the woman, i feel that is quite good. but if anybody has done it sooner, let me know.

I recently started FFX again and for some reason i didnt remember how much of a pain getting these sigils was were. This time round i didnt really struggle on the sun sigil (although i think i got lucky) but i still havnt done the lightning one. I havnt attempted Kimahri's yet because last time i almost broke my controller from launching it cuz of those dam butterflies..
