    Ok I just wanted to help you FF8 players out there once you are on Disc 4, and you will most likely want to go back to your beloved Ragnarok inorder maybe to play the CC Card Group for copies of those amazing cards you may have already refined. Or just run around with your Ragnarok to Island Cloest to Hell/Heaven for levelling up.

    Well whatever it is, I'll tell you now how to get there, just because I am so nice :p

    If you chose the upper left portal, you’ll emerge on the shoreline near the Chocobo Sanctuary. Head inland and enter the camouflaged dome-like Sanctuary, which is north of Grandidi Forest. Acquire a chocobo and ride it south along the eastern coasts of the Esthar continent. Cross the shallow waters at the southern tip towards Kashkabald Desert. Get your Chocobo onto the Centra continent via the southeastern shore and head towards the center of the desert to find the Ragnarok, which appears as a red dot on the world map.

    If you chose the middle portal, you’ll emerge on the Centra continent near the Centra Ruins. Head towards a small mountain on the northeastern tip of the island. Go around it to find a Chocobo Forest. Enter and get a Chocobo (or pay the Chocoboy 1,200 gil to find one for you). Mount it and head south towards the beach.
    Cross the shallow waters to get to the opposite island (Edea’s Orphanage should be nearby). Once there, head northeast, through a narrow mountain range to reach Kashkabald Desert. The Ragnarok is there and appears as a red dot on the world map.

    You’ll notice that with the exception of dungeons and chocobo forests, all other areas are blocked off. There’s not much you can do about the strange barriers surrounding each town, so take a trip down to the Heaven and Hell Islands to stock up on spells. Once you’ve done that, take a look inside the Ragnarok.

    Once inside the Ragnarok you can then go along and play the CC card Group. This is what they will play like. These guys have virtually every rare card you could wish for. So you can stock up on those Demi's, Aura's, or refine card to pump yourself up on Megaelixir's to face the Weapons :p

    Jack: Aisle near Entrance (Balamb rules)
    Club: Aisle near Air Room (Dollet rules)
    Diamond: Hangar (Trabia rules)
    Spade: Hangar near the save point (Esthar rules)
    Heart: Entrance (FH rules)
    King: Air Room (Lunar Base rules)
    Joker: Aisle near Passenger Deck (Centra rules)

    if any of you have any questions, or see fault in what I have said, tell me. Thanks :p

    Hey Meteorain, I've got a quick question here. In the second path you mention a chocobo forest on the same continent as the Centra Ruins....would it be possible to give me a rough idea where the chocobo is in there? I've done that forest soooooooooo many times, and I still can't find it myself. Also, is it possible to find the Queen of Cards on Disc 4? I've heard it is, but I've also heard it isn't... a little help on the issue would be appreciated. Thankies muchlies.

    The guide looks good Met, I found the ship with little problem (I wasn't following the map accuratly). The only flaws I found is Quistis wasn't in the air room, and one or two spelling mistakes.
    Nice guide

    The Queen of Cards (the one that starts out on the Balamb train station steps) can't be found on disk four. The reason being is all the areas on the world map are sealed off with a few exceptions (Tomb of the Unknown King, Deep Sea Research Center...stuff that is optional during the game).

    The CC group can be played against in the Rangork, just like Met said :)
