FFVII FAQs

 

 

Due to some interest on the board, I decided Iíd slap some crap together for stealing (important) things in FFVII.  Iím just going to sort of throw it all together, so the first posting may look a little unorganized (itís actually chronological with how I tend to play the game).  But, as always, Iím open to suggestions.  Please let me know if youíve got any.

 

When/Where do I get the Steal Materia?

 

Youíll get your first Steal materia in the sewers after the Don Corneo scene.  If you lose it or something, donít worry.  You can buy more of them later in the game in Kalm.

 

What important items can be stolen and when/where?

 

Train Graveyard: 

Ghost Hands can be stolen from Ghost enemies.  This isnít really important, but itís a one time only thing.

 

Striking Staves can be stolen from Eligor enemies.  This is a much better weapon for Aeris than you would normally be able to get for quite a while.

 

Shinra Headquarters:

Carbon Bangles can be stolen from Moth Slasher enemies on the 67th, 68th, and 69th floors.  This is a better piece of armor for your characters.

 

Hardedges can be stolen from Soldier 3rd enemies on those same three floors.  Itís a much better sword for Cloud.

 

Overworld after Midgar:

Atomic Scissors can be stolen from Custom Sweeper enemies around Kalm and Midgar.  This is a better weapon for Barret.

 

Mythril Mines:

Grand Gloves can be stolen from Madouge enemies.  This is a better weapon for Tifa.

 

Overworld after Mythril Mines:

Boomerangs can be stolen from Formula enemies in the overworld forests.  This is a better weapon for Yuffie.

 

Boat to Costa del Sol:

Shinra Betas can be stolen from Marine enemies.  This is a (semi)-one time item, so be sure to collect them if youíre going for a ďperfect fileĒ.  Itís nothing special, just a piece of armor that you probably wonít want to wear.

 

Mount Corel:

Right Arms can be stolen from Bomb enemies on the bridge.  This is an item that causes decent damage.  A lot of people worship these, but Iíve never found them the slightest bit necessary.

 

Overworld by the Gold Saucer:

If you still want to, you can steal Striking Staves from Harpy enemies.

 

Desert Prison:

Platinum Bangles can be stolen from Death Claw enemies on the screen directly below Dyne.  Itís a piece of armor with double growth.

 

Overworld by Cosmo Canyon:

Vagyrisk Claws ďcanĒ be stolen from Bagarisk enemies on the dark area to the north-eastish of Cosmo.  These are useless items, but they can only be gotten in large quantities here and by duplicating them.  The keyword is ďcanĒ, as these enemies are very rare, and the steal rate also seems to be piss-poor.  My advice is not to bother with it.

 

Mount Nibel:

Gold Armlets can be stolen from Dragon enemies.  This is a better piece of armor.

 

Overworld - Wutai Beaches:

Adaman Bangles can be stolen from Adamantaimai enemies.  This is a piece of armor, and can only be gotten here.

 

Great Glacier:

You can steal a Circlet from the boss ďSnowĒ.  Itís an accessory, +30 Spirit, +30 Magic.

 

Gaeaís Cliff:

Dragon Armlets can be stolen/won from Blue Dragon enemies around the top save point.  This is a rather good piece of armor that you will find quite nice in the boss battle right after the spot where you get them.

 

A Protect Ring can be stolen from the Right half of Schizo.  Itís an accessory that starts your character in battles with a Barrier and Magic Barrier.

 

Gigas Armlets can be stolen from Gigas enemies on the slope down towards the Crater.  This is a piece of armor that adds to your strength stat, and can only be gotten in large quantities here.

 

Corel Train, Car Four:

Warrior Bangle can be stolen from the Eagle Gun enemy.  This is a one time only piece of armor that raises your strength by a large number.

 

Mideel:

A Curse Ring can be stolen from Ultimate WEAPON during this battle.  This is an accessory that raises all of your stats by quite a bit, but it also starts you off in every battle with a Death countdown.

 

Inside the Underwater Reactor:

Shinra Alphas can be stolen from Underwater MP enemies.  This is a piece of fairly useless armor that can only be gotten here (and one from the crew on the submarine, if you fight them) and one other place noted later.

 

Gelnika:

A Ziedrich can be stolen from Rude.  Itís a great piece of armor (or at least it would be, if it had slotsÖ), and you can only get three of them in the game.

 

A Touph Ring can be stolen from Reno.  Itís an accessory, +50 Vitality, +50 Spirit.  Only two of these can be gotten in the game.

 

Fire Armlets can be stolen from Unknown enemies.  This is a good piece of armor that absorbs Fire.

Aurora Armlets can be stolen from Unknown 2 enemies.  This is a good piece of armor that absorbs Ice.

 

Bolt Armlets can be stolen from Unknown 3 enemies.  This is a good piece of armor that absorbs Lightning.

Water Rings can be stolen from Serpent enemies.  This is an accessory that absorbs Water.

 

Rocket Town:

Another Ziedrich can be stolen from Rude.  Itís a great piece of armor (or at least it would be, if it had slotsÖ), and you can only get three of them in the game.

 

Overworld near Midgar:

Rising Sun can be stolen from Diamond WEAPON.  Itís a good double-growth weapon for Yuffie, and is unique.

 

Midgar Underground:

Another Ziedrich can be stolen from Rude.  Itís a great piece of armor (or at least it would be, if it had slotsÖ), and you can only get three of them in the game.

 

Another Touph Ring can be stolen from Reno.  Itís an accessory, +50 Vitality, +50 Spirit.  Only two of these can be gotten in the game.

 

A Minerva Band can be stolen from Elena.  Itís a good piece of armor for women, and you can only get two in the game.

 

Shinra Alphas can be stolen from Soldier 1st enemies on the around the Sister Ray.  Itís a pretty worthless piece of armor by then, but itís the last chance youíll have to get it.

 

Overworld in General:

Reflect Rings and Circlets can be stolen from Ultimate WEAPON.  You will steal a Reflect Ring if heís on the ground and a Circlet if heís in the air.

 

Elixirs can be stolen from Gighee and Master Tonberry enemies in the Crater.
