The player may not open the chest in the southeast corner that contains an elixir.

The Forbidden is the southernmost chest (middle of three) and always contains Gil.
The Zodiac Spear can only be equipped through the Uhlans job.
This has fairly obvious implications thanks to the more restrictive way the International Zodiac job system handles weapons and other gear – where anyone could use them before, you need to be of the right class in The Zodiac Age.
A few other additions to Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age include faster load times, updated treasure chest systems, items that can be stolen from monsters, and improved enemy tactics. Espers and party guests can now be controlled by the player, which also allows for greater control over combat.
