NOTE: THIS CAN ONLY BE DONE IF YOU HAVE MADE IT TO CHAPTER FOUR AND ARE ABOUT TO FIGHT ELMDORE AT LIMBERRY CASTLE KEEP TO GET THE ULTIMA SPELL FOR RAMZA!
If you have leveled up your Squire job class to level 8 and learned all the abilities up to this point for the Squire, you’ll realize that for some reason Ramza can’t master that class! Well, that’s because he still requires to learn one last ability/spell! The ability/spell you’re requiring is “ULTIMA”! “Ultima” is a spell that deals non-elemental damage to enemies two grids vertically and horizontally.
To learn “Ultima” you must have Ramza’s job class set to the Squire. Only Ramza and a few select others can learn “Ultima”, keep this in mind during the planning of your strategy! Once that is set up you want to equip Ramza with equipment to prevent KO, vampire, or any ailment that prevents you from controlling his actions during the battle! Once prepared for battle proceed into battle with a formation that would antagonize Cecilia or Lettie to cast “Ultima” on Ramza. A formation furthest away from the enemy with Ramza grouped with 3 other people to one side should make it a higher probability of Cecilia or Lettie casting “Ultima” on you!
The stars represent Ramza (Blue) and Elmdore (Red). The dots represent Cecilia And Lettie (Red) and your party (blue)
As seen above is the formation I used, in my opinion, caused the probability of casting “Ultima” to be higher due to the fact that they are bunched together and the furthest from the enemy. Having them further from Cecilia’s and Lettie’s forces them to move the maximum amount forward and still not be able to physically attack you! With that said, they are forced to rely on using their special abilities instead to attack you! There is a risk that Cecilia and Lettie will try to use Charm or KO on you, but there is still a greater chance that Cecilia and Lettie will use “Ultima” on you!
Keep in mind while you are focused on having either Cecilia or Lettie cast “Ultima” that Elmdore will use samurai job skills such as Muramasa, also known as “Doom Aspirations”! “Doom Aspirations” cause status ailments doom and confuse on you. If you are hit and doom is placed upon Ramza FEAR NOT! For he still can learn “Ultima” as long as it’s casted before doom takes effect!
Now on to how to learn it! In order to successfully learn “Ultima”, you must have Cecilia or Lettie cast “Ultima” on Ramza or on a party member that “Ultima” will effect Ramza as well, such as being beside, in front, or behind the party member. You’ll know right away that Cecilia or Lettie are casting “Ultima” right away due to the fact that “Ultima” is the only AOE (Area of Effect) ability/spell they know!
Once “Ultima” has been casted on you or a party member next to you, you MUST be able to withstand the damage dealt by “Ultima”! If you die by this attack, no worries! You can just phoenix down Ramza and try again! If you do survive you will see a text pop up asking if you wish to learn “Ultima”! It will give you an option to choose yes or no. Select yes and BAM! You just learned “Ultima”!
This is the text you will see when Ramza survives Ultima!
This is the easiest way, in my opinion, on how to learn the Ultima spell for Ramza in Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions!
NOTE: The Ultima spell for Ramza is a learned spell, so, no worries on spending points on it!
