FFT - Dark Knight Ramza

Hack of Final Fantasy Tactics

Description:

This is a small patch for the PSX version of Final Fantasy Tactics that allows Ramza to learn the Dark Knight techniques “Night Sword” and “Dark Sword” when he fights against Gafgarion at the end of Chapter 2. If Ramza’s class is set to “Squire”, he will learn these techniques upon contact.

The techniques can only be learned from enemies, so Gafgarion will not be able to teach it to you in any battle where he is an ally (including Zierkile Falls, since he starts as an ally), and Ramza cannot learn it from Cid.

To offset these skills being so easily missable, the recurring villain Rofel has been changed into a Dark Knight, so that Ramza can also learn these skills in Chapter 4. The battles where this technique can be learned are:

  • 1. Ch2 - Golgorand Execution Site (Gafgarion)
  • 2. Ch2 - Lionel Castle Gate (Gafgarion)
  • 3. Ch4 - Hallof St. Murond Temple (Rofel)
  • 4. Ch4 - Underground Book Storage Fifth Floor (Rofel)

VERSION 2 CHANGES A few players noted that it was nearly impossible to get Gafgarion to use “Dark Sword” on them. It is difficult, for 2 reasons that were not changed from the original game: 1. Gafgarion only uses Dark Sword against characters that have damaging MP-based spells available in the battle. For example, he will go after Summoners with a Black Magic sub-skill with Dark Sword, but will never use it against Archers with a Punch Art subskill. 2. It’s not well known, but the original game has both Dark Knight abilities set up to be learned on contact. However, the content is dummied out. The original probabilities for learning them on contact were 100% for “Night Sword”, but only 50% for “Night Sword”.

Version 1 of this patch left both of those intact to stay as true to the original design as possible. Version 2 has been split into 2 patches so that you can address those issues: 1. “Original” - This simply updates the probability for “Dark Sword” to 100%. If you get hit with it, you learn it. 2. “With Crystal” - This also updates “Dark Sword” to 100% probability. In addition, it also incorporates an ASM hack by Glain that allows Ramza to learn the abilities from Gafgarion’s crystal, regardless of his current class. If you choose to learn either ability, you will learn both.
