Latest Patch: 1.69. If you have an earlier version, please download the latest patch as soon as possible.

The download has been updated to version 1.69. It includes all fixes up to this point. There is no need to re-download if you have patched in the fixes separately.

You know that game many aspiring devs create? The one starring their friends, often times based on a chat room, or some forums, or a MMO... or perhaps a fangame that barely resembles its source material. The one that gets maybe a half hour of gameplay finished and is completely unintelligible to anyone except that group of friends. Yeah, that one. Now, what if someone actually saw that project all the way through, and attempted to actually make it a fun, accessible, and playable game that was faithful to its source material?

Enter Legend of Balance. This game originally started out as a fun little project for friends, starring characters from Final Fantasy XIV. Over time, and with a ton of effort, it changed into a complete game of its own. It still stars our characters, and there are still a few injokes, but the plot has been set up as such that any Final Fantasy fan can get into the game and enjoy it as a light hearted Final Fantasy romp. Players of FFXIV will find quite a bit to enjoy as well. The story of the game takes place inbetween the end of FFXIV 1.0 and the start of A Realm Reborn(if you haven't played FFXIV, this part probably doesn't matter, and the game can be standalone).

The game revolves around a group of heroes, champions of the realm of Eorzea. In the midst of an intense battle to decide the fate of Eorzea, the heroes are transported away before facing certain death at the hands of Bahamut. Finding themselves separated in a brand new world, the heroes begin a journey to reunite and find a way home. However what starts off as a simple quest quickly unfolds into a classic journey of crystals, great evil, and steadfast allies. Before this adventure ends, they will discover the truth behind this strange new world, and uncover the binds that tie it to their own home and beyond.

-30 to 40 hours of gameplay, including a multitude of sidequests.

-Enjoy a faithfully recreated Final Fantasy battle system. Everything is as you remember it from the classics!

-Utilize classic abilities, including commands such as Jump, Runic, Blitz, Mime, Throw, Mix, Blue Magic, Dualcast, and much more, along with new commands and abilities based on other games in the series, such as Draw Out from Tactics.

-Equip Magicites to gain access to powerful summons and customize your stat growth.

-A huge cast of unique playable characters, including several hidden ones.

-Find and use faithfully recreated equipment. Favorites like the Ultima Weapon, Illumina, Brave Blade/Chicken Knife, Offering, and much, much more is all here to find and use to become unstoppable!

-Dozens of sidequests ensure there's plenty to do, with no need for excess grinding.

-Face off against familiar foes and brand new ones, including a nostalgia filled bonus dungeon for those who complete the main story.

-Facing a foe that your current party can't handle? Switch party members anytime, even in the middle of a fight!

-Buy rare and unique items at the Auction House, and battle in the Colosseum!

-Take part in minigames, including fishing and an arcade-style airship shooter.

-Customizable Battle Speed, Battle Mode, and Difficulty will get you the experience you want, be it tough as nails or a more relaxed game.

Playing the game at higher resolution

Hey all! I just wanted to post a link to an upscaler that will let you play pretty much any rpgmaker game at a much higher resolution.


Download this and follow the instructions, open Magpie, then the game, then press alt+F11. I'd suggest using either the Anime4k or CRT upscalers for LoB. This will let you play the game in fullscreen and it will look really nice!



How many spells are there for him to study anyway? :p
ps: how should I build Cassie and Elysia :-/
let me say the game is just great i love it , enjoying it so far

but i fked up ,i parked my airship behind sundi's castle and now i cant get to it T_T
can anyone help me :(
There are about 45 Blue Magic spells to learn, though I might be off by a couple on that number.

It depends what you want to do with them. I'd just buff Elysia's strength myself, while Cassie would of course benefit from Spirit to make her cures stronger. However, if you want her to also be able to do a bit more damage you could pump up her Intellect so her Banish/Holy does more damage. A couple of people have even buffed her Stamina to make her take physical hits a bit better.

EDIT: @Kalalas: Send me your save file and I can fix the problem. Sorry about that!
I need help please. Seeking desperately Abdandoned Mine . Where can I find them?
Go south of Palomton, across the bridge, then turn and go east and you should see a cave. That's the place.
As for the Ironbug quest, I gave her the fire charm, what should i do next?
Btw: who is this red-haired lady, I have seen her several times, quite creepy!
Sorry that I ask again , but I am now search the Vampire Castle . Can you help me again ?
@Chaox: More will open up later in the game for that quest. And nice catch on spotting her! Look for her later on in the game, you'll find out who she is.

@Gimli13: Take the ship on the right from Aquaria, then just head west from where you land to find it.
Just have recruited Divius, How should i build her, a tanky time mage? =D
nice game but it got major slowdowns all the time which keeps me from playing it(it changes back and forth between running at normal speed and slowdown everywhere)
other rpgmaker games dont slow down for me
Hmm, that's weird. Nobody has reported any issues with that since some problems were fixed. Are you running the latest version of the game? Are the slowdowns on the map or in battle?
I just realized your game is listed as number 7777

It's a nice little FF reference, and a lucky number. :P
So in Aquaria, where is the stolen sword supposed to be found? I believe he was saying that one of the market vendors would be trying to sell it, but I'm pretty sure that I've talked to everyone in the outside market, and noone says anything about a "Kingsword". Or is it supposed to be in the auction house?
@Kaliesto I would say this has been a pretty lucky game, too!

@Proffessor_Buglean hmmm, that is weird, one of the stalls should try and pawn off a sword on you. I believe it is near the middle of the market area.
Oh crap, sorry! That was totally my fault. I had explored the majority of town late that night shortly before going to bed, then started getting the quests the next morning, and I had completely forgotten that I had already bought the sword the night before and had already equipped it to Karina. Wow. No wonder the vendor wouldn't talk to me. *Shaolin Face Palm* Thanks, and sorry about that!
No problem, glad you got it figured out!
Latest patch updated to 1.58.

-Fixed an issue where the airship could become inaccessible if parked in a specific spot behind Malum Arce.
-Fixed an issue where a game over would be gotten if Fievel was KOed when starting a certain plot event.
-Fixed an issue where the Blue Magic spell "Charged Whisker" was the wrong element.

Is there a trick to the Greedy Goblins quest from Cecillia? I can't figure out a way to find the Goblins.

Also, I've noticed a slight stutter while playing. Is that intended?
^ The fight with the 3 Raider Goblins is the shiny spot in the forest west of Cecille.
