I don't recall what my exact levles are its either mid 40's or early 50s. It's been roughly half a year since i last played my FFT file as I was busy stoming on Magic emprorer Ghalion's ass in Lunar silever Star Story Complete. Hell I still need to finish Wind waker (had it for a year and ahalf and i'm lost in the final dungion) and KH2 (again had it about a year and ahalf, mostly I'm just annoyed at how overly long the final boss fight is.)

I don't have Beowlf, and aside from Ramza, cid, and Mustudio most of my heavy hitters are generic units and despite being at level 40ish I don't have any real speedster unitis. Hell I don't even have most of the jobs open.
The one complaint I have about FFT is how much you're expected to levle grind. As for ultima meh I've never been much of a completest I just want to see how the story ends Seeing how horribly uner prepaired I am though tells me that I'll just have to start new and get to levle grinding bah.

If you don't have Beowulf, you can use an Oracle, I think. Not quite as effective, but should still work.

And yes, you have to GRIND. And you don't NEED to steal the equipment, it just happens to be your ONLY chance of getting some kick ass stuff. Though, lack of armor does make Elmdore easier to kill.

If you don't want Ultima, then just focus all units on Elmdore, have Agrias and Orlandu just their sword attacks, use someone to heal, and you may just be able to pull through - you ONLY need to kill Elmdore...though, once you do that, you have to fight the Lucavi, but if you just keep hammering away with holy sword attacks and long range weapons, equip the good armor to fight against vampirism and other status effects, and have and Oracle/Time mage to ensure you attack quicker than he does, you can do it. I didn't steal or learn Ultima my first time through the game.

Well, I thankfully have a save file just a single match before the Wiegraf fight so I can grind Ramza up. Geez, if I didn't have a second save file for such an occasion, I'd have to start over! I can't believe this, can't they game test this crap? I am actually Lv. 26 I think but not anything I do hits him, it either misses, is blocked or some crap...

Ultima huh? I recall that attack from some other FFs. What class learns it?

^Only Ramza (and Luso, for the PSP) can learn Ultima, and they must both be in their original classes (so, Squire and Game Hunter).

And unfortunately, yeah, one of Tactics drawbacks is that it's much more battle-heavy; you NEED to level up substantially to beat Weigraf and other such enemies. Having a monk's preemptive support command is useful for that battle, but mostly if you use Ramza's yell ability to increase your speed, and then increase his strength, you should be able to land your hits on Weigraf.

^Luso is actually from Tactics: Advanced. Like Balthier, he was added to the new version of the game (the old obviously could not have either character as their games were not yet created...) :p

^Yes, it's THE Cloud, the one from FF7. Unfortunately, if you want to use him at all, better get used to GRINDING... it takes ages to get him up to speed with everyone else.

^I am not sure, but to be safe you probably need at least 4 for both... I think you can actually look using the select/analog button what you need to unlock lancers, but that might just be for the PSP version...

Ah, FFT. I remember knights with a shield and mantle as being the only real threat; every attack has, like, a twenty percent chance of hitting. =\

In the end, though, calculators totally rocked the battlefield.

That really just depends on that stargy you use to fight him. I always used the chemist plan that I found on gamefaqs it served me well and I was able to beat him in the mid 20's to low 30's range. Before I desided to just give up and star again I had about three file. I think I was near middle of chapter four, not quite sure about that though.
