Ways you can lower your characters' levels include: Degenerator traps (Favoham Plains is my favorite place to do this).
Using Monster Skill on an invited Mindflare, which will let it use Level Blast.
Leveling Ramza down as a Bard and back up as a Ninja netted him 143 HP, 40 MP, 7 PA, and 2 Speed.
Therefore, you can see that this can pump up your characters immensely, even if it is a bit time-consuming. You can make Orlandu even more cheap than he already is.
Luso (PSP Only)
In chapter 3 a "random battle" will automatically occur in Zeklaus Desert, after that battle Luso will join your party.
Balthier (PSP Only)
After the first fight against Meliadoul at Bervenia in chapter 4, Ramza goes to the Mining Town of Gollund and checks the rumor "Rash of Thefts", about a godless thief stealing precious cargo from the church. Ramza then goes to the Merchant City of Dorter and checks the rumor "A Call For Guards", about some precious cargo from Bervenia that needs an escort to Dorter. When Ramza goes to the Dorter slums, he walks right into an ambush. The thieves attack Ramza, before realizing they've got the wrong man. Balthier then steps out the shadows and condemns the thieves' ability to set a trap. Teaming up with Ramza, Balthier manages to get rid of the thieves.
After the battle, Balthier explains that he is a Sky Pirate looking for the Cache of Glabados. Ramza thinks Balthier is referring to the Auracite, and when he asks Balthier what the Cache is exactly, Balthier only mentions it is the reason he is currently in Ivalice's future. When Ramza tells Balthier he thinks he knows what he's looking for, Balthier is more than keen to tag along, claiming the leading man never balks out of a little danger, even if he does feel more like a cameo role this time. Before they set off, Ramza comments that Balthier can't be a pirate of the skies if he has no wings, while Balthier complains that he is fed up of constantly following children, much to Ramza's annoyance. His Zodiac Sign is Leo
In chapter 4 go to Gollund and read a rumor called the Haunted Mines. Travel to Lesalia and a scene will introduce Beowulf. Agree to take him with you and he will join the party as a Guest. Return to Gollund in order to fight a sequence of 4 battles, one of which is a boss battle. Finish these battles and Beowulf will join your party.
Participate in the Beowulf battles mentioned earlier and your final objective will be to protect Reis. Finish the battle and you’ll gain her.
Return to Goug after recruiting Reis to view a cutscene introducing Construct 8. He will join afterwards.
Complete the previously mentioned character recruitments. When Sal Ghidos becomes available buy a flower from the Flower Girl. Return to Goug and then make your way back to Zeltennia. In Zeltennia Listen to the rumor about "the cursed isle of nelveska" the cursed island and a battlefield will open up just north of the town. After the battle you obtain a new Zodiac Stone. Try to move on the world map and a cutscene will begin in which the dragon Reis is transformed back into her original state.
Cloud can be recruited by Ramza Beoulve's party in Final Fantasy Tactics. To do this, Ramza must first defeat Belias and enter chapter 4 (he must have retained Mustadio Bunansa as a party member). At this point, he must return to the Clockwork City of Goug, where Mustadio's father Besrudio will have found Construct 8, but will be unable to power it up. Ramza must recruit Beowulf Cadmus from the Royal City of Lesalia and take him to the coal mine in the Mining Town of Gollund. After they save Reis Duelar, Ramza will obtain the Zodiac Stone necessary to activate Construct 8.
Cloud during his arrival at Ivalice. After Ramza has defeated Zalmour Lucianada for the second time, Besrudio will come up with a dimensional portal device, but again he cannot activate it. A rumor will subsequently circulate about Zeltennia Castle. After hearing it, Ramza can journey to Nelveska Temple and defeat Construct 7. Reis will revert to human form (and must be accepted again by Ramza), and Ramza will gain another Zodiac Stone. Taking it to Besrudio will cause Cloud to be summoned, but at this point, he will just run off. Cloud is then recruitable after defeating "Sephiroth's Shadow" at the battle of Goug, the city of Moogles.
On the way to Limberry Castle, Ramza must buy a flower from a flower girl in the Trade City of Sal Ghidos. He must then defeat Zalera and Adrammelech and then return to Sal Ghidos, where Cloud will attempt to save the flower girl, who is revealed to be called Aerith, from a group of thugs. Ramza must then help Cloud defeat the thugs. Cloud will then join the party, but will be unable to use his Limit Break skills without the Materia Blade, which is at the top of the tall pillar in Mount Bervenia. In Final Fantasy Tactics Cloud has an additional limit, Cherry Blossom.
Curiously, while Final Fantasy VII lists Cloud's birthdate as August 19th (making him a Leo), his zodiac sign in Final Fantasy Tactics is Aquarius. Cloud is also the only male character in Final Fantasy Tactics able to equip a Ribbon, which is otherwise only equippable by female characters, as a reference to his infamous crossdressing scene. However, this ability is no longer unique on the PSP version, as the Onion Knight can also equip female-exclusive equipment.
Deep Dungeon Exit Locations
There are five tiles on each map in the deep dungeon that alternate where the exit is. The game randomly picks one of these five tiles at the beginning of the battle, but check all 5 and I guarantee 100% you'll find the exit. I'll list each on an (x,y) coordiante system, going from 0-#. If you like looking, don't read on
