Rikku is without doubt one of the hottest characters amongst the a number of in Final Fantasy X, happening to be featured alongside Yuna in its sequel Final Fantasy X-2. As a really energetic however strategic celebration member she has rather a lot to carry to the desk, together with a flexible Overdrive and pretty constant stats throughout the board.
Combining the basic Final Fantasy job lessons of Thief and Chemist, a lot of Rikku’s abilities pertain to merchandise acquisition and utilization. While she is not significantly gifted in both Strength or Magic, her talents greater than compensate by granting her entry to non-Magic dependent elemental assaults and totally different stat buffs.
9 Spare Change
Spare Change (generally known as Gil Toss) is a capability that makes use of thrown gil as a way for attacking. It’s primarily a capability that exchanges gil for stronger assaults: 1 level of harm equates to 10 gil, with a most quantity of 100,000 gil for 9,999 harm.
The fundamental difficulty with Spare Change is that it presents little or no profit for gil disposal, particularly since this gil can be utilized elsewhere. While Rikku has different gil-expending talents, they show to be extra helpful in trade for the misplaced gil. Moreover, later within the sport most characters ought to simply hit enemies for 9,999 harm, making the expended gil for harm out of date after a sure level.
8 Pilfer Gil
Akin to Rikku’s unofficial Thief job class, Pilfer Gil permits her to steal gil from an enemy in a similar way to Steal. The means is unique to the International, PAL, and HD Remaster variations. This can also be the case for Nab Gil, which is curiously not present in Rikku’s Sphere Grid part regardless of sharing the identical qualities as Pilfer Gil.
Unlike its counterpart Nab Gil, Pilfer Gil doesn’t inflict harm whereas stealing. The quantity of gil is sort of small however can change relying on the goal — humanoids and managers present extra. What makes Pilfer Gil pale compared to different talents is the fact that gil is obtained on the finish of each battle, and losing turns attempting to steal one thing assured after fight is a waste of command actions.
For gamers who prioritize buffing their celebration, Luck will show to be a useful means — although not for the stats they might suppose. Rather than elevating the Luck stat (as one would think about a capability with this title would), Luck raises accuracy and demanding hit possibilities by 1%.
Unlike elevating precise Luck, it doesn’t have an effect on evasion nor the prospect to face up to or dodge crucial hits — the title is deceptive, Luck prices no MP to solid and could be stacked for a most of 5 instances. It sadly doesn’t function a lot of a goal as a lot of Rikku’s different talents, therefore why it ranks decrease.
Steal is a capability that Rikku begins with. It’s a quintessential means for Rikku early on within the sport, solely turning into ineffective as soon as she good points entry to Mug. Simply put, Steal permits the person to amass an merchandise from an enemy; the merchandise could be frequent or uncommon, however, as prompt by these classes, the probability of uncommon objects being stolen is decrease.
A novel profit to Steal in Final Fantasy X is that Steal dismantles many non-boss machina enemies. This saves the participant from going through an onslaught of machina enemies by having Rikku eradicate them with out dropping their HP to 0. The solely draw back to Steal, after all, is that it doesn’t deal harm.
As opposed to easily utilizing objects by way of the Item command, Use permits the utilization of unique objects not discovered within the common Item menu. Items that require Use are typically offense-based (comparable to numerous elemental Gems or objects dropped by elemental enemies), healing (together with the Al-Bhed Potions), or uncommon objects stolen from enemies used for weapon upgrading.
The fundamental profit to Use is the bigger merchandise pool that it empowers customers to. While most of those are tougher to acquire since they’re acquired from enemies, the power pairs extraordinarily properly with Rikku’s Sphere Grid formation as she instantly has entry to Steal and, later, Mug.
Unlike Steal, which solely takes objects from an enemy, Mug has the additional benefit of damaging enemies whereas additionally stealing. Mug is the usual Thief means and mechanically works the identical as Steal when it comes to success charges and item-rarity charges. Mug will all the time achieve success on the primary use towards an enemy, and the probability of stealing is decreased by half each time it is profitable.
Being a mix of the Attack and Steal instructions, Mug allows the person to concurrently purchase objects whereas aiding in taking down an enemy, subsequently not losing a flip doing one or the opposite.
Full-Life is the strongest restorative spell within the sport because it brings a KO’d celebration member again with full HP. It is curiously not in Yuna’s part of the Sphere Grid regardless of Yuna being the archetypal White Mage. Regardless, it is an immensely important spell that must be acquired by each Yuna and Rikku.
Beyond its healing qualities, Full-Life will also be successfully used towards undead enemies or enemies with the Zombie situation. While pricey at 60 MP, it saves the participant from having to repeatedly solid spells and spend turns reviving celebration members and bringing their HP again to most. As such, Full-Life’s excessive MP price is greater than price it.
True to its title, Copycat sees the person mimicking the motion of the celebration member previous them in fight at the price of 28 MP. The solely limitations for Copycat are that the person can’t replicate an ally’s Overdrive, nor can or not it’s used to summon certainly one of Yuna’s Aeons.
A significant standout for Copycat is that it may be used to spare Rikku MP when copying talents which can be sometimes pricey. For instance, if Rikku follows Lulu utilizing Doublecast and casts Ultima twice (totalling to 180 MP), the 180 will probably be cancelled out by Copycat’s 28, thus permitting Rikku the power to deal great harm with out the excessive MP price.
It must be famous, nonetheless, that assaults and spells are topic to the person’s stats, and is subsequently not a real copy of the unique person’s command.
At a primary look, Bribe looks as if a capability that, like Spare Change, is an inadequate approach for gamers to waste their gil. In actuality, this easy means is without doubt one of the best methods to swiftly and painlessly defeat the toughest of enemies whereas nonetheless buying uncommon objects, to the purpose the place some think about this means to be fairly damaged and overpowered.
When utilizing Bribe, the participant decides how a lot gil to supply the goal. In order for the Bribe to achieve success, it should hit a sure share: if the Bribe is 10 instances the enemies’ most HP, it will have a 25% success fee, whereas providing 25 instances the utmost HP ensures a 100% success fee for the enemy to depart battle.
This signifies that even the hardest enemies, together with the notoriously highly effective Ultima Weapon, could be defeated in a single command — as long as the participant has collected sufficient gil. What’s extra, Bribe additionally causes enemies to drop objects, together with uncommon ones.
