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.

Misaos and Fun Times in RPG Makers Animation Editor!

First off I want to say thank you so much to everyone who voted for our fangame in the Misaos! We won in a few categories and got pretty close to winning in a few others. I was very humbled by all of your support and am very grateful as well. I know Rydiamist feels the same way, So again thank you everyone! Your support is huge motivation booster to get stuff done on our next fan game!

Rydia has been working on making a small little bonus to the game to celebrate getting 5000 downloads! I personally have moved away from working on Legend of Balance other than looking into bug reports we get here and there… but I that doesn’t mean I don’t have something new to contribute to it as well!

I have been spending a lot of time working on our next Final Fantasy fangame, making sprites, looping music, making maps and tilesets, all sorts of fun stuff… but in addition to that, I have been trying to recreate some cool Final Fantasy animations in RPG maker. Let me tell you guys something… I HATE RPG makers animation editor so much, it is so hard to work with… but you have to do what you have to do.

One of the animations that I have been working on has been Fenrir. Now, I always thought it was strange that Legend of Balance didn’t have a Fenrir Magicite since (spoilers) you fight Fenrir in the game. However! For the 5000 download patch, I would like to present to you, Fenrir's Animation~!



Now i’m off to slave away on our next fan game!

I restarted the game - I'm now at the point where I have the black chocobo but I never found Odion and now I cannot find Dimensional void or Kutan. any help Cannot complete Ashieeton cause I'm missing Odion ??


Sorry, I was mistaken, Odion is in the chocobo forest just to the northwest of Rosalia. The dimensional rift is on an island south of the snowy continent.
I must be playing the wrong game or have a bug !! I follow the walkthrough and there is no Odion no where !! Other "persons of interest" have not been where the walkthrough said until later in the game - hopefully that will be true for Odion ! I just want to complete the game having done everything !!

Just note that I will do all possible thinks before I press the main story line.
As I have written the guide during gameplay there shouldn't be much wrong, only perhaps some items.
Sorry - not sure what that means - Just like now I'm suppose to go to Memoria but first I stopped and cheched and Plate and Mag were where they were suppose to be before ?? Do I have the wrong version game - I'm sure I downloaded the correct one ??

Some people for the town won't appear until you've either finished the previous phase of the town or have progressed some in the story. If Odion is the only person you're missing and you have the black chocobo, he should be appearing. If you'd like you can send me your save file and I can take a look.
If thats the case - I'll just continue on and see what happens and keep in mind about the save file ! Thanks
Started over again - for future reference - if you don't stop at asheeton and ask who ever is running the town were future recruits are - they wont be there !! I did that twice now and all the people were where they were suppose to be when they were suppose to be there !! Ah - now I can get on with the game !! Thanks for tolerating me !!
I must say -- Great Game !!! But, how do I get to play the bonus dungeon - must have missed something ?? Thanks !!

To access the bonus dungeon you have to load a clear data, and also have to have finished the sidequest in Memoria.
Sorry to bother you once again - I have beaten every side quest including Memoria - I cannot access bonus dungeon - maybe not sure how to import cleared data file ? Thanks for any help again !!!

Did you beat the game, and then at the The End screen saved your data when prompted? If so, you can just load that data and it should be available.
Yes I did that but when I load it all I get is the ending picture of everyone !!?
Just press enter and it should take you back to the world map.
It's been a while since finishing the story and not getting the good ending. Might restart the game and go thought everything from the beginning. I miss RPGs like this.
edit - ignore this! thank you for this love letter to my fave series of games :D
Sorry. My computer crashed and it took me 5 years to get another one. Did you ever put in that easy mode? Also, is there a walkthrough somewhere online? I like to use those to find everything.

Sorry, no easy mode unfortunately. If you're really struggling though you can send me your save file and I can power your characters up a bit. That said, grinding is intentionally pretty fast in this game so it shouldn't take much to become pretty overpowered.

In the FAQs tab at the top of the page is a complete walkthrough by Firefly84, it covers pretty much everything in detail!

Additionally, several people have done Let's Plays of the game on Youtube that you could reference as well.

I would have to redownload it and start over. As I said, my previous computer crashed.

My internet lagged and it doubleposted. Feel free to delete this.
I love the game so much... although, Flame has a couple bugs that need squishing. whenever I press mimic after someone's just regular attacking, she ain't really doing it whatsoever. Don't get me wrong, she's extremely useful with Karina's skills + Limit Ring, it's just that I'd like it if she started to attack, or at the very least, use Spellblade skills as well.
