Final Fantasy 8 Remastered Triple Triad is a rather challenging card game that encourages exploration other than just strategy. This situation arises when you need a rare and more popular card. In this Final Fantasy 8 Remastered Triple Triad card locations guide we are going to tell you about the locations for such cards and the method to acquire them.
Moving into a higher tier of cards, the Triple Triad, you can head to Balamb Garden to defeat the NPCs of the Card Club to reveal their identity and collect the rare cards. The locations for these are provided in the table.
A few of the rarest cards have conditions to fulfill before they can become obtainable, and without sheer luck, players would not have any chance of locating them. To acquire the full collection, players had to embark on a missable side quest to collect one of the games' rarest cards, Pupu. For those who love to play Triple Triad, here are the best cards in Final Fantasy 8 Remastered and where to find them.
The Quistis card is one of the easiest rare cards to obtain early on. To get it, you have to go to the cafeteria in Balamb Garden, and at a few tables are the Trepe Groupies. All three of these groupies have the Quistis card but its sheer luck on if it'll appear when challenging each one to a card game. However, the best odds in getting Quistis is by challenging the guy in the back.
This can simply be done by Saving the game, playing card game - select weakest cards and 1 rare card (Ifrit for example, you get that one when you beat him) and losing the game. Opponent needs to select rare card to take from you. After losing one, load the game, you want to hold on to your rare cards. There is also a quest line for cards where you need to lose some rare cards which you can get back later.
The only other people who play Elnoyle cards on Disc 1 are the boy coming down the stairs in Galbadia garden and the guy who has the Kiros card in Deling City, and both of them play it extremely rarely.
Which cards are rare, you ask? Well, we consider it this way. Cards in the first five columns are not rare. In almost every situation these cards are dropped by either the monster on the card or the monsters found in the same area. Most of the cards in the last five columns are harder to find and sometimes take very specific actions to obtain.
For the purposes of this section we won't be giving the specifics of how to find cards that are not rare. If you are having trouble finding one of the tougher monsters try playing Best Master Gilbert in the Treno Card Stadium.
In the game there's a special side quest called the Queen of Cards. It's an extremely long and extensive quest that nets you many rare cards, which is useful for Card Modding. Here's my advice: don't even bother.
However, a useful tip for those wanting to play the Triple Triad minigame in general is to not let rules like Random, Plus, Combo, or Same spread around. While not impossible, trying to win rare cards while not losing your own becomes that much more difficult.
Almost any NPC can be challenged to a card game by talking to them with the Square Button. Certain characters will offer you rarer cards, with Monster cards being the most common, and Characters cards the most rare (with rarity going from Monster to Boss to Guardian Force to Character cards).
At one point, the Official Strategy Guide mentioned a rare card that an NPC had. Even though this was after the MiniMog disaster (which briefly made me consider quitting the game altogether) since I had pumped so much time into the Card Game, I made the decision that I would still keep trying to get every rare card I COULD still get. And thus, I pumped match after match after match into trying to win this rare card (because rare cards do not normally appear until a few matches in, sometimes more than ten matches in). After doing this for such a long time period and coming up with nil, I was starting to question whether this NPC had a rare card at all.
The game features an Adventure Mode (solo) to play against several opponents, each with different rules, and a WiFi mode to play with friends. You can see the list of cards and rare card that you have (or have lost) from the Collection menu.
You need to have all the cards together at one point in order to get the achievement. At least 1 of each. Getting the gold star for getting them all won't get you the achievement. (Need to be holding 1 of every card to get it.) You can get back any rare cards you missed or modded in Disc 4. 2b1af7f3a8
