No random battles
Use the following methods to never have any random battle outside of towns:
rent a car for 3,500 gil, walk on train tracks, walk on paved roads, or get
Diablos' No Encounter ability.
You can get free Potions in Timber Town. Get Rinoa in the party, then go to
the bridge where you saw the guards. Keep returning until a man appears. Talk
to him, then talk to him a second time to receive a Potion. Leave the screen
and return until he appears again and repeat.
Easy Ability Points
Go to Cactaur Island and earn 20 AP for each Cactaur that is defeated in
battle. Cactaur Island is the small island covered by a desert.
Easy Experience Points
Display the world map and travel to the left-most island. It contains powerful
monsters that can easily level up your characters after battles.

Guardian Force locations
Squall's desk computer.
Draw from Monster after fighting Biggs and Wedge.
Defeat Sacred and Minotaur in Tomb Of The Unknown King.
Before going to Timber, talk to headmaster Cid until you get the Magic
Lamp. Save the game, use the lamp, and defeat Diablos. Draw and store Demi
then cast it. Do not draw and immediately cast, as he will not cast Curaga
on your character.
Draw from Statues attacking Rinoa at end of Disc 1.
Draw from NORG after destroying his pod.
Draw from Fuijin in the battle with Fuijin and Raijin.
Draw from Cerberus during the Galbadia Garden invasion. He is at the
center glowing circle near the entrance.
Go to the island in lower left corner of the map. Walk only when light is
not flashing. Go straight until the message "you have perceived the
resonance" appears. Go to opening at flashing object, fight Ruby Dragon
(you have no choice). If you are in bad shape, answer "Yeah, there's
nothing we can do". If not, answer "Never". With luck, Ruby Dragon will
not use its Breath attack, as your characters will die. When you win,
select "Cancel", then "Accept". Watch out for Bahamut's Mega Flare.
Defeat Odin. Then fight 20 Tonberrys at top of elevator or open place, not
at torch lit place at its base. You will fight the Tonberry King.
Use Ragnarok to fly to the island on the outside of a desert; you will see
a cactus teleporting around. Walk up to it. Be careful, as its 10,000
needles do 100,000 damage.
Get the Solomon Ring from the Esthar Sorceress Memorial at end of Disc 3.
Laguna will have talked about defeating Ultimicia. You need six steel
pipes and other items. He will appear without a fight.
Draw from Ultima Weapon. Bahamut must have already been defeated. Give one
pressure spot all the time you can. If you do not, reset at the first
steam pressure spot, put Zell in you party and let him "tinker" with the
machine demanding four pressure; you will get away. Since you lose four
pressure the first time you reset, it is as if you did not make a mistake
(only, a lot of strong monsters will flood the area). Set the Move/Find
ability to find the final save spot.
