I'm going through FFIII for the first time and I'm having some trouble getting through the cave of tides (DS version). I got Luneth as a Knight, Arc going White mage, Refia as Scholar and Ingus as Geomancer.

Anyone has any tips? Or should I just level up ike mad?

- Keep a nice stock of antidotes.

- Boss: Keep your characters in the back row, blast away with Thundara and/or Blizzaga, and have a well-leveled healer.

Most of the difficulty of Final Fantasy III comes from the lack of job levels. If you're playing tactically (like Aerolesque said), and still having trouble, try leveling up your jobs. Go fight goblins and have everyone defend for 3-4 turns before finishing the fight. Usually this will raise everyone's job level by one.

You could be level 99 and have low job levels and still be having a tough time surviving. Your job level is more important than your actual one.
