Final Fantasy X – The City of Luca
Luca, located on the southern edge of Spira, boasts its very own blitzball stadium; here lies one of its premier teams – The Luca Goers are regularly champions!
Final Fantasy X allows the player to visit Luca by boat, airship or Mi’hen Highroad. Visitors from across Spira can visit its Sphere Theater which captures images and music in spheres for later viewing. Its popularity draws in visitors from far and wide who come for its recording performances at its Sphere Theater.
Early Life and Education
Luca, one of Spira’s two major cities, has an obsession with Blitzball that serves to distract its residents from their constant fear of Sin. Blitzball provides them with an outlet that serves to ease this strain on them.
Tidus has an inquisitive nature, prompting him to ask numerous inquiries about both the city and tournament. It’s great to watch him remain curious throughout the game without becoming overbearing.
After the blitzball tournament is complete, go back to Dock 1 and lend O’aka XXIII some money, before returning to Luca Square for a cutscene and learning Jecht Shot for Sphere Grid minigame (useful later on in game). Grab Al Bhed Primer at Sphere Theater Reception area before leaving Dock 1.
Achievement and Honors
At first, Luca, Tidus and Yuna witness Maester Seymour summon Anima through a dramatic cutscene. Once this has taken place, follow the red arrows on your minimap towards the Theater to collect Al Bhed Primer Vol. VII that sits awaiting collection at reception area.
Theater patrons can purchase Music and Video Spheres at the theater, though no trophy will be awarded (unlike in Final Fantasy X). Furthermore, behind Dock 5 you may discover a chest containing HP Spheres and Magic Spheres to purchase.
Succeeding against Luca Goers in a blitzball tournament grants you a Strength Sphere which will aid later on in the game. Furthermore, your main reward for beating it is Auron’s video that details what transpired during Final Fantasy X-2.
Final Fantasy X and X-2 feature the city of Luca as one of their main destinations, boasting Spira’s only blitzball stadium and being home to one of the top teams in league play – The Luca Goers.
Tidus, Yuna and Kimahri travel to Luca in search of Auron. In a testament to the developers’ foresight, their destination reveals even further insight: it turns out they go to a bar instead of cafe!
Chapter 2 finds Luca to be an uneventful place, save for its most notable attraction – the Covetous Garment Grid (located near a ledge near steps leading down from Mi’ihen Highroad exit), which marks the starting point of Sphere Break practice and where players meet Maester Mika.
