Ruins of Zanarkand

Follow the path around the mountain. At the bottom of the mountain trail, you'll camp out for the night. When you are ready, head north into the ruins.

In the first section, look for a chest with a Fortune Sphere on the left. Then next part you'll find a Spiritual Targe in a chest on the left.

Once you reach the dome, head down until you are in a partially covered section. At one of the corners, you are able to climb up to the top and backtrack to find a chest with 10000 gil. When you reach the center, there is a dead-end on the right with a Friend Sphere. Continue on and just before entering the next section, look for a ramp downwards that will lead you to a Lv. 3 Key Sphere.

When you enter the next section, you can get a Luck Sphere on the right just before the stairs. Go up the stairs to reach the Cloister of Trials.

  9. To get the Destruction Sphere, solve the final puzzle which involves finding all square blocks in both chambers.
  10. Once you have the Destruction Sphere, place it in the slot on the right of the map in the second chamber to reveal the treasure which is a Magistral Rod.
