Winhill (Laguna Flashback) (Disc 2) - FF8 Guide

At the top of every page of my Final Fantasy 8 Walkthrough I will have a list of the most important GF Abilities for you to learn as well as my personal preference for who to junction GFs to for this part of the story. The game's auto order for GFs learning abilities is extremely terrible so it's strongly recommended you interfere and do the abilities in the order I provide here.

Throughout the game you can also refine Cards into Items and then those Items into magic. I've provided a list of the refinements that you can do for the cards that you will most likely have in your possession at this time during the story below as well. This same information will be provided at the top of every page during the full walkthrough, keep checking it as it'll change as the story progresses.

Winhill Main Area

The start of Disc 2 will have you in control of Laguna again, some time after retiring from the military. In the wardrobe of the room you start out in you'll find a Curaga Draw Point. Our destination is downstairs and outside, the pub is the entrance in the same building just south of ours.

Inside the pub you'll find Kiros, speak with him and there will be a long scene. During which make sure to ask him about Julia, that'll get you the Eyes On Me journal entry, and is the only way to get it... If you care about that sort of thing.

Ask About Julia

When you're done inside, make sure to Junction GFs and magic to these two characters, there will be fighting unless you have Enc-None on Diablos. Just outside of the pub to the southeast near the river you will find a Dispel Draw Point. When you're traveling the path south to advance the story you will run into a Drain Draw Point and may also run into a Reflect Draw Point depending on the route you take.

Keep heading south all the way until you reach the edge of town which is where Laguna says the patrol is done. Before heading back up stop by the Item shop nearby and spend the 3000 Gil Laguna has on whatever you want, items carry over to Squall but the Gil won't.

Winhill Patrol Complete

When you're ready to finish this dream sequence return to the pub and speak with Raine, she's now in the upstairs portion. There will be a scene here when you arrive with Laguna and Raine, after which you'll want to speak to both Raine and Elle before resting in the upstairs bedroom.

This will conclude the first Laguna Dream Sequence of Disc 2.
