I mean Red Mage is not BAD to have, but 4 of them would make an awesome challenge, especially since we wouldn't have a Warrior to take the hits.
3 Sep 2020
Red Wizard is very strong in the endgame, especially once you get Masamune. 4 white mages used to be the unofficial player challenge, but I wouldn't want an achievement for that either
4 Sep 2020
Having played through the game as every same 4 party composition I remember 4 Thief being my least favorite.
4 Sep 2020
i think thief is the worst class
4 Sep 2020
Thief is only good on the other versions because Ninja had Temper, and on this NES version Temper doesn't work so... meh screw Thief.
4 Sep 2020
yeah temper is the best spell in the game on other versions, on PSP i used haste and like 80 tempers and oneshot chaos
4 Sep 2020
Yes, thief is definitely the worst class. It's what they use to do the hardest possible "speed" run. There was some other way they made it even harder, but I forget how.
4 Sep 2020
I think it may have been from not buying any weapons or armor.
6 Sep 2020
Oh right. It was from using ONLY one thief. Don't know why anyone would go through something that painful.
16 Sep 2020
Have all cheevos except pirate Bay. Tried over 20 times to get this and no pop, playing on retropie 3b using retroarch emulation station I have all cheevos except that one
17 Sep 2020
I Mastered it on RetroArch, every achievement worked without any issues. The achievement should pop as soon as you step into the ship.
20 Sep 2020
Bilingual (5) did not unlock and I am clearly past where it unlocks since I am in ToFR. (I just noticed, wish I had noticed sooner.) - Playing on RetroArch
20 Sep 2020
I had an older save that I was able to reload after completing the game and went directly for unlocking Bilingual and this time it unlocked. No idea why it did not the first time, but was able to get it to when I tried again.
23 Sep 2020
Ok figured out my problem i loaded a different core and it popped when I did the cheevoFinally mastered!
5 Jan 2021
Mastered! Thanks for the awesome set!
8 Feb 2021
Party must be at the beginning of the game(!!!): White Mage, Monk, Warrior, Black Mage, otherwise miss the achievement:Holy Power Over the Dead, Meditation Under the Extremes, Classic Hero, Fried Kalamari

I'll try doing a sorta speedrun of this, let's see how I do
17 Aug 2021
First time I finish the game. Very difficult on a first try, but very addictive. The set is also very good.
22 Aug 2021
Final mastered this game, I got 25 out of 26 and it was the first game I played on RA! I just got the Kraken Black Mage achievement after over a year of getting some of the others.
