well not played but i guess really wanted to sit down and play for hours on end to beat it.

Im about 4.5hrs in and I have been leveling up my char from 4-7 because I tried to go into the castle and do that but I found that I was low level and was lacking gear to finish that section. So since I was smart and saved that on a second copy I wanted to know, what level should I be before going forth onto the castle and fighting through the caves etc.

Or is there anything I should make sure to do/get before I continue on.

That sounds like a goo level to me. I didn't level til just about two hours ago when I went from 8 to 9, and that was just one level and working with small scale (just the small wolf and hyena type) battles. It took a while, but now I'm starting to go to more areas with all this, so leveling seems like it will happen quicker.

Anyway, I'm new to this game too, though I beat FF7, I've play through quite a bit of 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10 too. I would say the smart thing to do, unless you're against it, is to find a guide that works for you at

This is the one I've been using, and it has worked well so far, letting me know of just about everything I get to, along with secrets, what chests to avoid to get the Zodiac Spear, and a few other things.

Good luck.:D

yah went in at lvl 10 and finished that now I have 4 party members and Im working on more level ups before I start the next few hunts.

Think I want to be about lvl 15 before I go to the next major event.

You might want to look over the recently posted thread regarding whether or not acquiring the official strategy guide is worth your time.
