Finding Gau is relatively simple. You need to find the Veldt. The Veldt can be found on the continent north of Mobliz; east of the Doman island; on the same continent as the Cave on the Veldt; east of Nikeah… Come on, it’s the northeastern continent, guys.

Anyway, you’ll need to open up a slot in your party (i.e. have three or less party members) and fight some battles on the Veldt. You’ll know if you’re there if you get the funky overworld music. After a few battles, Gau will appear as he did so long ago. So long as you don’t hit him, he’ll join.

Join the fight against Kefka, a maniacal, crazy, clown lookalike (who is scarier than that sounds), as he attempts to bring the world to ruin. You take control of a multitude of very colorful characters (including a little girl with a paintbrush!) all of whom are joined together by fate, united by their mutual hatred of Kefka and the Empire. Final Fantasy VI is a vibrant, hilarious world and one of the most loved games of the series due to its excellent writing and complex battle system.

Our guide offers full assistance in your journey through the world including:

  • A full walkthrough from start to finish of the main story.
  • How to acquire all Espers, including the extra ones like Cactuar and Gilgamesh.
  • How to find every character when in the World of Ruin.
  • All side quests from the Cultists’ Tower to how to acquire Lores for Strago.
