Transcript: Hello and welcome back to the fifth episode of this Final Fantasy X HD Remaster playthrough. So, we’re loading in on the Salvage Ship and we’re just gonna look around. Looks like there’s an item their. What is it? Obtained Al Bhed Primer volume one. The secrets of the Al Bhed language are revealed. All letter that are ‘Y’ become ‘A’. Tidus has reached the rank of Al Bhed Hujela. As you can see there, all the pink ‘A’ are translated to English. But, there’s definitely not enough letters deciphered to understand what’s being said yet. Obtained three potions. He sounds a bit mad frustrated. Let’s see what this women has to say. Using the Sphere Grid.
The Sphere Grid is used to develop your characters by activating nodes with spheres. Let’s see how this is done. Select Sphere Grid from the main menu. Okay so, here’s the tutorial of the Sphere Grid. I’m not gonna read it all out. I might point out some key points, that’s about it. Use the directional pad to move the cursor. So, all the different spots on this landscape is called nodes. The number of steps a character can move is equivalent to his or her Sphere Level (S. Lv). You have to battle to get Ability Points (AP) and get additional Sphere Levels. So, we need to be careful not to skip any nodes where we have to back track, unless It’s intentional.
I think initially, It’s all pretty well straight forward on the Standard Sphere Grid. So, we don’t have to stress about that just yet. So obviously, It’s important for us to be collecting Power Spheres, Mana Spheres, Speed Spheres and Ability Spheres to activate these nodes. As an example, the Ability Sphere just activated that Ability Node. And it taught Tidus the ability – Cheer. But, that’s a demonstration. We haven’t actually unlocked that yet. That’ll be our first proper node we will unlock when the time comes. All the ‘L.1’ to four I think it is. We cannot pass until we can unlock them with a key. So, we can’t go down. We have to go up from here. And theirs a glance of our characters menu from the Sphere Grid.
We can zoom the map out, which becomes a little daunting when you can see the true landscape of it, when you move it around. There’s a lot to unlock, if you want to complete it all and I’ve done it before. Alright so, there’s the Sphere Grid tutorial and let’s proceed. Salvage the Big Prize hey, I wonder what that might be. Alright so, let’s dive down to the depths of the ocean. Follow this anchor chain and we’ve encountered a battle. Three Piranha. Got a Power Sphere and a Mana Sphere, cool. Their what some of the things that we need for the Sphere Grid to unlock the nodes. Alright, it looks like we’re going to an Underwater Ruin. Alright so, here’s a sphere. A ‘Save Sphere‘. I hope you enjoyed this episode and I’ll see you on the next!
