=========================================================================

1)There are five main characters as the heroes of Blue Dragon. The group
is fairly evened out in terms of personality and qualities. Some you may
relate to, while others seems a bit odd. All and all you will be spending
many hours with these guys, so you will grow to like them!

Shu
---

Shu is a bit of a loud mouth that would rather act than think. He is
a little rash in his choices sometimes, and can cause situations to become a
little more challenging than they should be. On the upside he is very
brave and couragious. Always wanting to help people and never turning back
or "giving up." This makes him the leader of the heroes. He starts out as
as a swordmaster, which I kept him as for most of the game.

Jiro
----

Jiro is very cautious and likes to plan just about everything he does out.
He is somewhat of a machinical genius. All of the gadgets and devices the
party comes across on their journey Jiro can usually figure out and
operate. Without him along, you would get stuck more than a few times on
the road with no where to go. He also seems to be feeling a little
something for Kluke....

Kluke
-----

Kluke has some background in medicine and ailments. Her parents(who are now
dead) used to be doctors.Along the journey she will help many peoples
suffering at the hands of Nene. She has a big heart and is extremely caring,
this can sometimes be overburdening to her. She considers Shu and Jiro both
close friends and will not make a choice between either of them over the
other. She starts out as a black mage and excells at magic. She will be a
great help along the path to greatness.

Marumaro
--------

Maru is somewhat of a loud mouth who talks before he thinks. Devees have
dances to show there feelings and Marumaro is very confident in his dances.
He does provide comical relief, but can sometimes get a little annoying.
He has a good heart though and loves to help people like the rest of the
party. He is very devoted and loyal to his friends. Marumaro default job
is Monk. When you first get him he will be a great damage dealer and
continues to be through the game.

Zola
----

Zola can be very cold and calculating at times. She is very experienced
at battle and traveling the world. She used to be a mercenary and you meet
her working for King Jibral. There seems to be some romantic interest
between these too.Although she doesn't show emotion she is still dedicated
to the party and admires there courage and power. Zola is a person that
the rest of the entourage looks to for a bit of a role model. She seems
cool and mature.

Szabo
-----

Szabo, the robot protecter of Nene, one of his two companions.You really don't
run into him many times in the game. Not much is known about him as far as this
walkthrough currently covers to, and honestly I don't think much more will be
said. He hovers around with a gun and only has two encounters with the party
thus far.

Deathroy
--------

Deathroy is an annoying creature that's attached to Nene's shoulder.He likes
to repeat Nene's words like some sort of parot. Not much information is given
about him. The book the comes with the game says Deathroy may have been found
in some ancient ruins. Nene looks at Deathroy as his only true friend because
he and Nene are all that survived from ancient times. Deathroy is the only
thing in the world that Nene actually cares for.

Nene
----

Nene is an evil Ancient being who can use the powers of the "shadows" as well.
He seems to have a deeper understanding of the ancient technology than anyone
in the world.He commands legions of robot and powerful machines.People across
many nations fear him and his unknown powers. He truly enjoys the pain and
agony of others and wishes to become a supreme ruler!

============================================================================

============================================================================


3)Job Summaries
---------------

I can not stress this enough, make sure you read the book
with the game about job skills and abilities and the options it shows you
in the back about how you could set up your party. The good things about
job classes is you can change them and customize them. By no means follow
exactly what I say. Find your own strategy and enjoy the customization.
Once you hit level 30ish with your first job, you will be far enough in
the game that when you level your next job it will increase much rapidlier.
I will add more information to the area as I learn more about it. If
I remember correctly new jobs unlock at every 5 levels you gain. So far
it has been 5,10,15,20,25,and 30. By the time you hit level 50 with all
characters, you will have every single job unlocked for all characters.

Swordmaster
-----------

Swordmaster is the job that Shu starts out with. Swordmaster was made to
be the most balanced job. They have a good attack stat, as well as defense
and agility. Nothing is extremely exceptional, but this is a good job
for the front line. Swordmasters can also use sword magic. Every offensive
spell you can get for black mage and so far only shina for white mage you
can use. The only down side is that while some BLM spells are AOE, all
sword magic is only a one target attack. The bright side is every enemy
has a weakness and SWM can definetly expose it!

I would like to make a quick update to this section. Upon hitting the
middle of the second disc, I realized just how valuable Swordmaster
really is. Swordmaster can be amoung the top job for dealing damage
in the entire game. (Only outdone by BLM because they can hit multiple
targets.) As what makes swordmaster so great at higher levels?? Well
in Boss battles and single TOUGH enemy encounters swordmaster is
absolutaly invaluable. The reason for this is at stated above, you
can use bosses weaknesses an exploit them with Sword Magic. When you
finally get spells like flarus, windus, etc. you can inflict upwards
of 2000 damage a hit around level 50 using enemy weakness!! Now, the
other important factor. ABSORB HP AND ABSORB MP are by far one of
the greatest abilities in battles!! When you finally get and equip
these two, you come to be almost indestructable to most enemies
and will cause even bosses to fear you!! With these two mores you
can spam endless sword magic. The minute you get low on HP or
MP start regular attacking enemies. At level 50 I was absorbing 75
HP and 75 MP every single regular attack a made. These abilities
can save your life. If you plan on fighting King Poo, dragons,etc.
later these skills can help with the difference between life and death.
The reason for this is you won't need to waste time using MP restoring
items and you cause damage at the same time!!

One more quick thing to state is the defense. When I was fighting
the dragon quest, my swordmaster seems to overall take less damage
between magic and physical attacks than any other character. The
only job with better defense is Guardian!

Guardian
--------

This is the top defensive job and if you decide to use it make sure he is
on your front line. While defense and health is high there is not much more
for in battle related skills. On the up side, the engaging enemies skills
you get are exceptional and you should level at least one character somewhat
in this job in order to get them.

This job I did not find I needed to actually beat the storyline game, but
if you are planning to fight some of the tougher side quests bosses, some
of these skills can be life savers. HP+ 25/50% and Endure can nearly double
your HP amount. Even if you have max HP, 999 hp, when this hits 1 it
will take your MP instead of HP. If your character has 500+ MP, we are
talking about another 500 damage they can take!! When you fight bosses
like Gold Mecha Robot which can deal 1000-1200 damage to every character
at once, this can save you. All in all, this job can be somewhat handy.

Assassin
--------

These guys/girls are fast and swift attackers. Zola's default job is assassin
and by the time you come across her it will be somewhere in the rank 30 range.
With that said, you don't really need to level anyone else in the job if you
just want to check it out. On the other hand, if you would like a few fast,
hard attackers then by all means level some more. Assassin's realy shine
around rank 30+ when they get control(you can take control of an enemy and
make them attack other enemies or themselves!) and Double attack! Double
attack lets them hit twice in a row in one attack turn with each hit not
losing any power compared to a single attack! At the end of the game
assassin's can cause the most damage from their regular attacks because
of being able to attack twice. There agility is almost a must for tough
bosses. When things start to get really hectic towards the end of the
game you are going to be wishing your WHM could have more turns to heal
faster, etc. Use your imagination!!

Monk
----

Monks are the best at physical attack damage. Like the book says there charge
attacks release high power that when charged enough can hit multiple targets.
There hp is high, so again a front line attacker. They have some amazing skills
that will allow 100% counters on physical attacks. Marumaro's default job is set
to this, so keep him with it for a while.Attract Aura is great for trying to get
achievements and repel aura is great for avoiding battle.(Not recommended.)

Taking a second glance at this job. Attack amp and charge attack can be must
have skills for this and other jobs. These skills will allow you to charge
physical attacks to cause ever more damage and to expand your range from
one hitting one enemy to hitting every enemy on the battle field!! Not
only are these moves the only physical attacks that can be AOE, but they
can be used with sword magic and mow down!! Between getting these skills
for SWM, MNK, and ASN you can have phsical attackers than can decimate
an entire party alone just like a black mage can do!!!

Black Mage
----------

Black Mage is Kluke's default job. I absolutally recommend keeping her with
this job. Kluke will gain some very powerful spells. These will allow
you to decimate entire parties with one ultra-powerful spell. Keep at
least one black mage in the party at all times! You can switch her over
to support mage like I did if you want to level another job, but make
sure you equip her black magic skills so you can still use your spells.
Your black mage will save you many hours of battles by allowing you
to quickly finish enemies instead of attacking and attacking the again
and again before they go down.

White Mage
----------

This is Jiro default job and you should leave him at it for a while.
While you won't need too much in the way of healing right at the beginning,
you will really need it later. Shina will also be a great help against
damaging ghost type enemies and stunning all other enemies that attack
fast and hard. Keep this job around and if you switch keep white magic
as a support skill. This is another job you should not slack on.

Support Mage
------------

The support magic isn't really anything special at the beginning. In
fact, I have been able to do without it so far. In later boss battles
hopefully things will become a little tougher and we can finally
bring this magic into play. I would have one of your mages switch over
to this job just so you can use these spells in the future if you
find the need to. One major thing that you will need to level this
joob for is Field Barrier. This will be explained below.

Barrier Mage
------------

I am not going to waste time typing here. Follow the same exact advice
I gave you for support mage.

Generalist
----------

This is it! This is the job that every single character MUST level. If
you truly want to create powerhouse jack in all trade fighters and mages
you NEED to level this job. I recommend taking all the jobs you start with
all the way to rank 30 or so, then change some to this job next. You should
try to rotate it a little. Maybe take Shu's default job to rank 30, then
switch to generalist to level 22, then switch to assassin till rank 30ish.
While another character, say Kluke, should take black mage to level 30ish,
switch to support to level 20ish, and then go to generalist to level 22ish.
You do not keep this job as a job to keep playing with, you take this job
to unlock all of the skills you must have. When you get abilities like
Skill+6 and accessory+# you will be thanking your lucky stars. You could
take an swordmaster with guardian, monk, and assassin leveled as well, and
then give your swordmaster the agility of the assassin, the defense of a
guardian, and the attack of a monk. Sorry to go on and on but this job
is a must have for every character!

============================================================================


3) Magic Spells and Skills- Strengths and Weaknesses.
-----------------------------------------------------



5.1 Talta Village
-----------------

You start out in Shu's home town at the beginning of this game with an attack by
the land shark. You first take control of Shu's grandfather. Run around the area
and talk to all the villagers. After this you will regain control of Shu again.
From here chase the land shark's Fin and attack it.

Land Shark Battle 1
-------------------
Attack the Land shark 2 times,afterwards a c/s(cutscene) will appear and a weak
spot will be shown on the land shark.Attack the weak point and this battle will
end quickly.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Watch another c/s, talk to Kluke, and then run up to the Land shark again. This
time you do not need to battle it. A c/s will play, then just walk up to the
Land Shark in the net and watch the scene.
===============================================================================


5.2 Ancient Ruins Cave
----------------------

After the scene you end up in a cave. Check up on Kluke and Shiro. Run around
this circle area and attack all the Poo Snakes. They are very easy to beat.
Try to jump into them for a First Strike, or attack from behind to gain
an advantage. Continue to fight and open all the the chests around the area.
When all the chest are open one will appear by the Land Shark's fin, do NOT
get this chest yet. Climb up the three ramps and collect all the items from
the 2 chests here,and make sure you check all the pieces of equipment scattered
around, no matter how small or big. Most extra equipment in this game will give
you gold or items. Afterwards go and collect the last chest. Watch as the c/s
plays and you are brought to the Sky Fortress!
================================================================================


5.3 Sky Fortress
----------------

You end up on the side of the Land Shark in the fortress.Check the pullies with
rope on then at both ends or the shark and also the boxes holding the Land
shark into place. On the other side do the same and get the treasure chest for
the Monster Compedium.As you make your way to the north door a cs will play and
you will be taken to the evil Nene. At this point you meet 3 antagonists of the
story.

Boss battle 2
Nene
--------------
You are going to get totally oblitorated, so just attack and get it over with.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After the battle you are thrown from the sky fortress and end up back inside of
it?? You land in a circular room. Run around the outside circle of the room and
collect all of the chests. Absolutely SAVE YOUR GAME!!!! before you step on the
center platform.Step on the platform and you will hear a voice,shortly after
turn and run through the north door away from the robots.At the end of the hall
you need to close the door. Rapidly tab A in order to do this. You will need to
fill the gauge 3 times. If you can do this without fighting any of the guards
you will unlock and achievment. If you are too slow you will have to fight the
guards that make it through and you will lose the achievement, hence the SAVE
YOUR GAME! It is very irritating to have to keep starting over because of this,
I know I had to do the beginning 3 times for it. It can be VERY challenging to
get this door close before the first set of robots make it through. Well about
20 times later I managed to get it right. You then run into a room, they will
ask if you wish to swallow the orbs,do so.The robots bust through the door,
and you get your first battle with shadows.The goal after this battle is to
get on the ship by clicking A next to it.First I would fight some of the robot
still coming in. With your shadows you can take them out with no problem at
all in one hit.When you have had enough board the ship and get ready fora crash
landing.
===============================================================================


5.4 Mechat Crash Site
---------------------

In this area run around the outside and collect the chests and check the rocks
and peddles for additional antidote and gold.Drink from the water when you are
ready and heard near the ship to push the sign out of the way.
===============================================================================


5.5 Lot Wilderness-East
-----------------------

Monster Fights
--------------

Crickets--->Poo Snakes
Fat Rat--->Crickets
----------------------

Your first chance to check out what the world map is like. Explore this small
area and open the chests in this area for a few medicines, stone Ring, and
Mega medicine.You learn how to group up encounters at this point.If you can get
the Poo Snakes and Crickets together a monster fight will break out and they
will kill each other.:)

Again in this area just sweep around fully scoping the area. Open the chest,
if a chest is on a cliff you just need to go to a nearby tree and push it
over to get the chest. Search the large boulders in the area and push them
over to reveal items underneath. There are a lot of encounters in this area
and I would recommend fighting as many as possible. In this area you should
be able to unlock one new job for all 3 charaters. Make sure you use your blm
on the foes. If charged properly you can take out all enemies with one spell.
( Besides the rat.)Remember to always check that poo!! Gather some good money
together before you enter the Sheep Village.
===============================================================================


5.6 Sheep Village Camp
----------------------

Alright now, another small village. Walk around and talk to everyone. Search
the random areas for items and open the 4 chests.You will get magical medicine,
tales of the thief, and a few other things. There is a villager you can trade
2-4 antidotes to and recieve a phoenix talon from each one. Buy the 3 new
spells from and magic shop, make sure everyone has all the stone accessories
in there slits, stay at the in, and lastly pick up any extra items if you need
them.The green glowing thing is a warp post, but you can't really do anything
with it at the moment so just examine it for now. When ready head out of the
back of the village gate and someone will yell to tell their friend they are
looking for them if you see them.
===============================================================================


5.7 Lot Wilderness- West
------------------------

Walk around the boulder examining rocks if you want the extra gold. Fight
the first Green Grunt and get the chest right on the right.Watch out for
poison status in this area, it will quickly run you out of hp. Again there
is not much to the area. Fight as much as possible.Look for the chests and
boulders to get items from. Not much to really get into at this point. The
areas are pretty straight forward. Crickets will eat poos, and for some
reason if Shu uses Wind Sword the grunt lose their sword, which leaves
them very weak after. Remember try to hit that Sweet Spot baby! One good
spell hit right can cause disater for the enemy.Finally you will get to
another Grunt blocking a path. To the left there is a grunt protecting
a chest, kill that one get the chest and then kill the one blocking the
path. The dead tree right after the grunt gave me an exp point +10 to
any character. Anyways continue and you will get the checkpoint sign.
If you haven't already discovered, checkpoints make it so incase you
die you can continue right from the spot without saving as long as you
don't turn your console off.Well now it's time for the next boss
battle and this one will be the toughest yet.

Boss Battle 3
Flamboyant Dinoram
------------------
Setup: Level 9
Shu: swordmaster
Kluke: blm
Shiro: whm

This game is a....very... interesting character. It looks like a mix
between a dragon, a goat, a scorpion, zebra, and elephant to name a few.
(Oh and my ex-girlfriend to be more specific.) Anyways enjoy the music
and kick some @$. Just use regular attacks at first and don't waste
any magic. After a little while Shiro will tell you hitting the body
doesn't seem to be effecting it and tells you to go for the head. This
is when you use Kluke to bomb away at the head. When the monster is
weakened you can start focusing on the head. Is't the music just great!
J/K, but honestly it is a nice change of pace compared to the same battle
song most RPGs have. Enjoy the victory, you beat the hardest boss
yet, although he wasn't much.

Enjoy the c/s with Donpa afterwards.Run around the crater and open another
chest. Afterwards you can save and exit onto the world map once more.
==========================================================================


5.8 Eastern Lot Wilderness
--------------------------

The goal is to walk towards the big "drill" machine that is almost straight
ahead. Take this time to scope out the area, get the chest you can see
and fight some more mobs before continueing. If you go to the right you can
get another chest, but do NOT try to fight the bear to get the other chest.
Trust me I tried, he can multi-hit for more than 200 damage and takes out
a character every turn. So keep some distance from him. If you manage to hit
level 10 congratulations you unlocked another job for all three characters.
When you are ready go to the drill and resume the story.
===========================================================================


5.9 Drill Machine
-----------------

Inside the drill machine make sure you check every knock and cranny for
gold and items. The are 2 chests to open,then go to the two robots you see.
Buy the cure poison spell first, then make sure all three characters have the
four copper accessories. At this point you should already have 1 necklase
and 1 bracelot from chests. Anyways equip them all, heal at the robot,
buy the other healing items you need and then save your game. all the doors
are locked so continue up to floor A2. Open 2 more chests and continue up to
the third floor. Check pipes in this area forsome goodies. Mobs will starts
appearing on this floor. The robots are very weak to water and it can one
hit kill them, unless they use there skill Waterproof, which cuts the damage
50-75%. Go in the elavator and up once again.a little ways into this floor
you will be treated to a mini boss battle.This robot is manic, he wants
to protect his treasure and will do anything to do it, even using illegal
means!

Mine Boss Battle 1
Winking Patroller
------------------

This guy isn't too hard. Just keep using water magic and attacking him,
he will fall soon enough. Afterwards the treasure is yours and it's
well worth it. The robot basically forces you take take his treasure as
well as the chests and apologises for it! Congratulations you just recieved
23 warp keys and the robot will explain exactly what they are for. Make
sure you use on to the warp device on the side of you. The cockpit on the
3rd floor is now unlocked too, so take the elevator back down and go to
that area. As you near the cockpit you will get in a fight with the same
robots you where running from at the beginning. Don't worry one hit even
from your mage with take them down.

Mini Boss Battle 2
Maru
------------------
Setup:level 11- whm,blm,swm (swordmaster)

Hey he has another shadow and can use magic??? Let's take this guy down
and convert him into a future @$ kicker. This is a fairly easy fight.
Use a couple of waters, and just use regular attacks from your swm abd whm
unless you really need to heal. Maru only its for about 4 points of damage,
but seems to counter on a regular basis, so be very careful about attacking
if you are running low.

After the fight watch the cool c/s, search the area, and chase the little pansy
outside. We'll make a man (or bat??) out of him yet! When you take the door to
the left of the door you entered you will be brought back to the first floor.
Over the chests here, go to the robots around the corner and stack up on items
you need, then head down that hall and through another door. The area ahead is
very long so make sure you save and you are fully prepared, it takes a little
while to explore fully.
===============================================================================


5.10 Ancient Hospital Ruins
----------------------

Monster Fight
-------------

Snow Wolf<-->Flame Wolf
------------------------

You start out on the first floor. A lot of rooms in this area are pitch
black. In order to turn the lights on you need to look for a red glowing
light on the wall and go up to it and press A. They are usually near the
entrance to that room someone. One other thing to note is to check every
bookself and piece of trash in these area. There are tons of gold, SP+
bonuses, Magic defense+, etc. to be had.

When you start out throughly explore this room. Look foor the chests around
here and go behind the desk to find another. Stick to the right side of the
room and enter a door there, where you will find some more chests. One of
them has a trap that will alarm some robots to the spot. Keep using Water
while fighting these mobs and they should go down instantly. After you
search the room head back out again.Head to the West side of the hospital
wing and go through the north door there. You will get another c/s. The
machine they show you will give you full hp/mp, so remember where this room
is. Search the rooms for more items and more chests. If you still have your
whm you can use the spell shine, as well as shine sword for your swm. This
spell does a good amount of damage to the mobs in here and will give your
whm a little more punch instead of being useless unless someone needs
healing. When you are finished with this room head out the other exit
and go up to the second floor.

Up on the second floor you will run into a ghosts in most rooms. Head around
the semi circle and look for a light switch to turn the power on.Be ready
for a surprize when you do. Look around for chests and wreckage that you can
loot for items. After you are done in this area, start looking into side room
for more loor, turning on lights as you go. In the room by the entrance you
will find a chest with the head doctor's key.Go back to the east wing where
you entered and if you are facing the door where you first entered this area,
take a left. It shouldn't be hard to find, it's the room by the entrance where
you actually zone to go into. Clear out these rooms and collect the chests,
especially the one behindd the doctors desk. (Be very careful here, as about
6 different mobs of ghosts appear all at once.When you are finished go back
to the main room and head around the outer edge again(to the area you came
from) and try to find your way up to the third floor.

On the third floor look for the switch that is positioned near you. There
are a lot of flame and ice wolves up here. When you fight them use the
opposite element against them. Ex. Ice wolf- use flare and flare sword to
take them down faster. Enter the door to your right and open the chest.From
here enter the room on the left. In here save your game and head through to
fight the Snow wolf. Look for the chest and then head back to the second
floor.

In this area head down the corridor to open some more chests. Head toward
the middle of this area and enter the control room. Turn on the lights and
flip the switch on the very last computer in here. (It's the only one that
works.) Watch out for some more ghost attacks. Leave this room and make your
way back to the elevator on the first floor, which is now operational. Take
the elevator back up to the third floor.

There are many wolves in this area. Run around the elevator to get the two
chests that are being guarded. There are only two corridors to go down in
this area and they both lead to the same thing. So go down either corridor
and head south. Your will find another chest with a treasure chest key in
it. From here head north, and enter the room on your left to use the key on
both chests and collect the items. Warning: be prepared for a fight before
you leave this room. Exit this room and enter the double doors on the other
side of it for a boss battle. Accept the invitation to help Marumaro out of
his prediciment.

Boss Battle
IceFireWolf Ghost
-----------------

Level 11-12
swm,whm,blm

This fight can be a little tricky, so start out slow. Everytime you damage
this monster it will shift elements, whether it is a regular attack or a
magic attack. So plan things out before deciding to cast a spell, or you
could end up healing this guy for a lot of hp. If he shift to water use
fire and vise versa. Remember spells have casting time, so wither stick
with wind spells and shine or map your way so you can use water and
flare to cause some major damage. After a while this monster will fall.

Run around this room opening the 4 chests and checking the broken monitors
for items. Enter the room straight ahead when you are finished here to see
Maru searching for his medicine. Take this time to fully examin every part
of this room for helpful items and gold. Eventually in the back you will
find the medicine and be taken straight back to the drill machine speeding
to Maru's village.
==========================================================================


5.11 Lago Village
-----------------

Run by the fence to find a chest at the opposite end. Run around the staircase
to the house to find another chest. When finished head to the group of Devees
and let the c/s take over. Before you head outside again there is an inn
you can stay at. When you are ready exit for another c/s. Follow Maru and head
up the stairs to the back of the town, where you can buy accessories and
items. (Make sure to activate the warp device) In the item shop there are
also two books that you can ready by examining them. I am not sure about the
significants of them yet, but it can't hurt to check them now. You will find
another chest on the wooden bridge and another a little way into the cave.
To continue the story head into the cave for more c/s and Marumaro will finally
join your party. There is someone selling spells for the party near the exit
to this building. She carries a lot of stock and you will need a lot of gold
in order to buy them all. I spent time outside the village farming gold for
all the spells before I left for the Forest of the Dead. It doesn't take too
much time to do this. If you head to the left when you leave, you can gather
3-4 more chests depending on how many you didn't get by the drill machine
earlier. You can also fight the huge Grunt Soldier you see on the world map
and win fairly easy to collect the chest behind him now for a magical
necklace. When you are ready follow the Devees instructions and head to
the right to get there. The area down here is largely covered in water.
Head to the left top grab a chest and the head straight to the other side.
Make sure you scope out the whole watery area beofre entering the
Underground Seacave. There a quite a few chests around this area. When
you are down collecting them all, enter the big shell looking like structure
to advance forward.
===============================================================================


5.12 Undersea Caverns
---------------------

Monster Fights
--------------

Poo crabs--->Ghost with 2 swords(???)
-------------------------------------

Walk forward a little to find a save point and chest to your right.
If you follow the right path around you can
collect two more chests, and it leads to the same area where the
three poos crabs are. Warning: Watch the Jelly Fish mobs, they
use a stun attack on you if you are detected by them. Keep heading
into the Sea Cavern, the road only continues in one direction
for now. When you come to another fork in the road, head right,
grab the chest there, then go back and take the left. You will
run into another little frok ahead, take a left this time. You
will run into a chest you can trade an item to, and it will transform
that item. I used a medicine and got a Mega Medicine back. When you
are finished go back and take the other direction this time. Take a
right when you get a chance and you find a treasure chest you need
a fish shaped key for. Go back and head straight following the path.
You will end up at a dead end with a few mobs in the area. Kill them
and a chest will appear near you, open the chest to get the Fish-shaped
Key! Notice the barnacle across from the chest, examine it quick, then
run back to the chest you can now open with the key. Guess what?? Now
you have the Hexagon=shaped crystal for the barnacle, so run back to
it and see what happens! After you cross the bridge you hit a
checkpoint and you know what that means!A tough boss fight is ahead.
Before you head there take a detoure right and get a new spell
Flara from the chest.

Boss Battle 4
Hydrattler
-------------

Setup:level 15
Default jobs

Just target the heads seperatly because you need to take down all four
to win. I charge attacked with Maru, used flare with Kluke, flare sword
with Shu, and kept healing up with Jiro. This guy like to cause status
ailments to you including multi-target poison and also single target
confusion. He seems to go down pretty fast though, so just
keep pumelling away. Congratulations on another victory.

Open the three chests, one of which contains a cure-all item, which will
be very handy. Continue forward to exit the area into Island of the Dead.
=========================================================================


5.13 Island of the Dead
-----------------------

Head forward a little to get a chest. To the right you can see the
Forest of the dead, but we are going to stop at another Sheep Tribe
camp first.
=========================================================================


5.14 Sheep Tribe Camp-Forest
----------------------------


Activate the warp device on your left first, then talk to the guy
next to it. Follow the outer wall to gather 4 chests as you make your
way around and back to the save point. If you talk to the people while
going around one will give you a heaving herb to deliver to someone.
You can warp to the Wilderness camp and give it to one of the tribesmen
who thanks you, and asks you to go back saying "I love you" to the person
it was from. Again, she asks you to bring another herb there. DO it and go
back again. Ok, i know this sucks, but do it again...This time he
will warp back with you, talk to them to recieve 2 items. I know it was boring,
but one mini side quest is out of the way and now back to the main story. Then
head into the center of this camp and stock up on items and accessories. The
accessories you should be all set on unless not everyone is equipped with
silver from earlier. Listen to the stories about the forest and then it
is finally time to head there. Leave the village and take a quick run over
to the left and enter.
===========================================================================


5.15 Forest of the Dead
-----------------------

Monster Fights
--------------
Fat Rats---> Flying pods(forgot name)
Wolves--->Green Skeletons
-------------------------------------

This area is full of ghost monster right from the start, and they are very
suseptible to shine spells. The good news: The wolf ghosts flee from you,
at least they did for me at level 16. What does this mean? Well if you are
looking to unlock some achievements, wolves are easy targets to try to chain
back attacks to. First head up the left path. If you near trees with the red
hanging lanterns??? they will drop and you can get items from them. Up on the
left path you will run into ancient moths,remember what the villagers said
about moths. Kill them quickly, and a chest will appear with some Death
Earrings. I always wanted a pair.:) Anyways things can get a little tricky
here. From this chest head right and follow the path up and left fight
mobs untill you come to an area where you can go no farther. Open the
chest on both ends, one contains Spirt of the tree item. Do not go in
the mist, you will be poisoned and hp drains quickly. Head back to the
chest you got the Death earrings from now and continue up the left path
this time. Cross the giant bridge and fight the ghost by the tree. Press
A on the tree afterwards in order to give it back it's soul. Run past the
tree and grab another chest. Now cross the bridge to the left that the
tree made rise. Three thief ghosts will appear, kill them and the other
ghosts to open all the chests. Watch out for the shooter ghosts though,
they will hit you from long range. When you are done head back to the
tree and go north over another bridge. You can open three more chests
here. Follow the path right and continue straight again. You will run into
the mist machine and two more chests. Shut it off and then run back to
the tree again and talk with it. From here head over the right bridge that
the mist used to envelope. Three more chests out in the open. The last chest
in the back has a purple skeleton guarding it. Kill him and grab the item.
Ok, now you need to go back over the bridge and take a left across the
southern bridge. Keep to the left and you will notice that this is the
area I told you to look out for the mist in earlier. Cross the long bridge
in front of you. Again follow the path and open some more chests. Eventually
you will be at some moths again. Link them and take care of business. Open
the chest with the ghost guarding it afterwards. ok. it seems an army of
ghosts has gathered in front of you. You have 2 shooter and 3 thiefs to
link and kill, good luck. Actually they are easy and after you can activate
a warp device you in front of you. Run forward from it and you will zone.
You are now in a wide open space and you hit a checkpoint. Yes, it's that
time again!

Boss Battle 5
King Ghost
--------------

Setup:Level 17
same jobs as always

This guy is a breeze to kill. Have Shu use Shine Sword, Maru use his
charge attack, Jiro and keep casting Shine, and Kluke I has casting
flara over and over. You should be doing from between 200-350 a hit with
every character. With this much damage he will fall in a few moments.
Congratulations another boss battle won!

Grab the gabo leaf afterwards and then you are told to warp back to
Lago Village. Do so and head inside to watch the c/s.
=========================================================================


5.16 Lago Village
-----------------

Seems the Deeves are going to be ok. When you wake up in the
middle of the night head up the ladder. Examine all dressers and
cabinets for some more items and head up another floor. Talk to
the people outside if you like, but the main goal is to head back
into the city hall. Heartbreak...sniff..sniff(It's ok to cry, Jiro
said so) So after there little dance that remind me of a Disney
Sing along song, exit the city hall and get another c/s outside. That
evil Nene was behind it the whole time! When you are ready head for
the exit to find out you need to travel through Gull Mountains to go
back to Talta Village.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Back on the world map you want to head left towards the area where
the drill was. We are finally going to exterminate that lazy bear
I told you to avoid earlier. After that is done go straight to get
a chest by the mountain. Head down to the left where the path splits
for two more chests. Go back up to the split and continue east.( this
is straight.) Again the path splits, they both lead to the same area
and another Lazy Bear fight. Run around the circle because there are
two more chests. Kill the bear, grab another chest, and kill another
bear. Finally you see the gate. Head to the cliffs on the left first
to collect another treasure though. Then walk to the gates and enter.
Maru gets his groove on and the gate opens for you!
======================================================================


5.17 Gull Mountain
------------------

(Remember to use Shina against ghosts. The other monsters use flara
and ground or wind against.)

As you enter there is a save point you can use and a chest to grab.
Save your game and walk forward. This is your first encounter with
Toripo. Have you been wondering what all on them medals where for?
Well now you have your answer. Buy what you want from him, I
bought one of everything. If you buy something the cost will go up
to 4 medals for these items. Warning: If you leave his shop he takes
off for the aurora Ruins, so make sure you got everything you want
before you exit the shop. Before you use them, make sure you are not
already close to going up a rank. When finished open up the warp
device thats is front of you.

Head to the right fist to get a chest.
Make sure you are still examining everything possible in every
area, for this place it is crystals. Head back and up the left
path after. Make sure you avoid the water pools in this area.
They will damage the party if you step in them. Monsters in this
area are very resistent to physical attacks, try using flara to
inflict some major damage.

When you come to the intersection and
can go either right or straight, go straight first. You reach
another intersection, keep heading straight up to get another
chest. Go back and there is a little cove to go into and grab
another chest. After you do that, it is time to run back to
the last intersection and take the other way this time. You see
an area where you can go left a little and grab a chest, then
keep going right again. Fight the crab and you are at another
intersection. We are going to go right first and fight the
Chain-gang ghost. This Mist walker enemy is a pain, be very
careful. When you get close they surround you with mist, you
can barely see right in front of yourself. Keep following
the path to get a few items. You run into a red wall, so head
back to where you fought the crab and go straight this time.
You will get a c/s, the be on your way again. Yet another
fork in the road, head left first to grab the chests. This
area wraps around, so just kill the monsters and run around the
circle getting chests. The little path leading off to the side
is the exit!! So make sure you explore this little area, and
then you are right near Talta village. It's been a long rode,
but we are finally home.(For the moment.)
==================================================================


5.18 Near Talta Village
-----------------------

There are two chests in this area to grab, so run around
fighting new monsters and take care of business. Enter
Talta to see what's going on in the city.
==================================================================


5.19 Talta Village
------------------

Head to the right to save your game. Then activate the warp
device and grab the chest. Go back and head over the left
bridge, you can enter Shu house here. You can read volume
2, for one of the books here. When you exit Shu's house,
go to the left and enter Kluke's. There is a chest in
here with a key item, so make sure you get it. There is
also a diary on the table you should read. Upstairs you
can read volume 2 to the wizard story now. Head behind
Kluke's house to find Jiro's. Inside you find the much
needed level 3 Heala spell! Search everywhere, upstairs
you will find all three parts of a new story.Outside you
will encounter monsters, so be prepared. The skeletons and
bugs will fight each other. Head back to the save point
and go up the stairs this time. Check all the boxes and
chests before going up the next ramp here. You will
get a level 3 Winda spell here. Climb the ramp to get two
more chests. Back to the save point, head right over the
bridge now. Head in the first tower type building, and
you can find the 3rd part to the wizard story here.
When you exit ge the chest on your right, then run
around the guy ignoring him for now to grab a chest
on the other side. Warning: When you get near the guy
checkpoint pops up on scene, by now you know what this
means! By prepared for battle. Finally go up and talk to
him. We need to find out what happened here!

Optional Boss Battle 1
Mad eye
Accompanied by: 2 green skeletons, 1 purple
--------------------------------------------
Level 20

Setup:Default Jobs


Use water, winda, or ground with Kluke. Basically use
any of your attacks that will hit all monsters. Mad
Eye can boost his defense so you do barely any damage,
but sooner or later is will fall. When it does, it
only takes a few hits and this guy will go down fast.
Congratulations you can now rest at the inn!

Go in the Inn and heal up. Talk to the guy on the
floor, even though you saved him he still wants
money to stay. On the up beat note, he has new
spells, yay! You should have plenty of money by
now, so buy all the spells and the items you need.
When you are ready to leave, go into Shu's
grandfathers workshop down next to Shu's house.
Everyone is still alive! When you are ready exit
the town.
==========================================================


5.20 Near Talta Village
-----------------------

The valley of Murals is not down the path you are
facing, but the next path over to the left. It is
surrounded by the big brown boulders overhead.
-------------------------------------------------------


Mural Valley-West
-----------------

Monster Fight
--------------

Hawk Eye--->Mural
-----------------

Holy crap! The murals are alive, but anyways, they are
very easy to beat. When you kill a mural a treasure
chest will appear. Watch out for the flying enemies!
They are hard to get a hit on before they attack you.
Cross the bridge to your right and open the chest.
Stay on this side and go around the corner, where
you will see four chests. When you open the last one
2 different Hawk Eyes will appear. Kill them and
keep moving forward on this side. You will fight
some murals on the way. Grab the chests they leave behind.
The next bridge you see that crosses the gap run over.
Backtrack to where you saw the chest you missed, then
continue moving forward on this side to grab another
chest. You have run into a dead end so go back and
recross the bridge you came over on and continue forward
again. Another Mural, another chest, another bridge, and
another chest...an another mural, another chest..you
get the idea. Before you cross the bridge to the other
side go around the corner for another chest. Then
cross over and take out the badies...Another mural,
then a few Hawk Eyes. Contintue forward and open another
chest, then cross the bridge over the gap. On the other
side, head back in the direction you came from. There
is another mural and after you will be in an area with
some green grass. There is a new type of enemy here
protecting 2 chests. Link them together and take them
out. One hit from a monk or swm will finish them.
After you collect the items turn around and go back
to get a c/s.
It looks like we still have quite a ways to go, but
at least we can rest for a minute a little ways up.
Cross the bridge and go into another green area to
get the three chests. Make sure you check the surroundings
in these areas, I got an agility+1 and Magic attack+1
in them. Around the corner you fight another mural.
Just a little bit ahead you will zone into Mural Town.
===============================================================


5.21 Mural Town
---------------

This place is kinda creepy....The murals here are living
and friendly. Talk to everyone, then head down the long
hall. You need to talk to the black thing in the middle
of the room here to unluck the door out. He tells an
amazing story and so the plot thickens.... When you are ready
go ahead and enter the next room at the end of the hall.
There are shpos here, so stock up on items you need. Use
the inn to heal, and buy some new accessories at the shop.
You should already have all the spells from your visit to
Talta village. Talk to the murals around the outside and the
thing in the center again. Take the door on the left first.
It leads to another room where you can activate a warp device.
Talk to the people around the room again and someone will
ask you how many mural cats are in the place. The answer is
8, but you actually need to go and press A on everyone of
them to get them to count. When you are finished talk to
the child again and tell him the answer. Go to the machine in
the center after and click on it to recieve level 3 anchor.
If you talk to the kid next to the warp device after you
activate it he looks surprized. Maybe if we come back later
something will happen. For now go back to the previous room
and contine down to the next area. You will recieve
another key item automatically, so take it. Talk to the
people in this room. As you are about to leave a mural
asks you to find him a shabby book which is located up ahead.
He also warns about a boss battle that will come as soon
as you exit, so make sure you save again and you are
prepared before stepping out again.
==================================================================


5.22 Mural Valley-East
----------------------

As soon as you enter grab the chest on your right. As
soon as you head over the first bridge you will run into
another boss battle.

Boss Battle
Flame Raptor
------------

lEVEL 20
sETUP:Default jobs

Another fairly easy boss. Keep hitting it with winda,
along with winda sword. Have Maru use his charged attack.
He does use fevor to power up after wind attacks, but
still he didn't get one attack off the whole battle with
all his powerups.

Keep heading forward till you can take a left over a bridge.
The bridge will fall, so fully explore the area as you make
your way around the circle. You will fight another mural.
Check out the grassy area. You recieve the shabby book
here, so run back and give it to the guy in mural town.
After you get the Level 3 Reflect from the mural head
back and go down the bridge this time. Go to your left
(If you are facing away from the bridge.)
to get a chest and cross the bridge into the grassy area.
Collect the items, then go back and to the right this
time. Kill two more murals for two more items. Cross over
the first bridge to your left. Kill two more murals on
your way forward, then cross the bridge on the right.
This bridge will fall now, so head back around the circle,
kill another mural and head down the bridge. After you
climb down, search the area, and head forward to The
Path to Jibral.
==============================================================


5.23 Road To Jibral
-------------------

You can only head right starting out in this area.
The group decides to double back.... So save your game.

Boss Battle
Tigers/Dullahan
----------------
Level 22


This is like another mini boss fight. You don't get the
cool battle music. The tigers are easy to kill. When
you fight Dullahan just use ground sword and ground
spells to throw him off balance. He will fall pretty
fast if you use this tactic.

You end up in camp with the villagers. There is one
chest to open here, so get the item. Go in a tent
and listen to Jiro, then head by the camp fire.
Warning: SAVE YOUR GAME!! It will automatically
give you the choice to do so. The reason is you
have a mini game coming up, and if you make it
through with no damage then you will unlock another
achievement. You will NOT get a perfect the first
time!
============================================================


Mini Game-Wagon Protection
---------------------------
Your job is to escort the wagon to Jibral, while
Big rats and tigers will attack. This is fairly
easy to get through in once piece. They will show

you on split screen when a monster appears. At this
time I recommend using encounter circle to both see
and to engage the enemies. Unless otherwise said, never
engage an enemy here without the encounter circle.
This will freeze things for a moment so that you can
see where enemies are, and how you can link them so
you sustain no damage if you want the achievement.
Even if you finish with 100% health because your
repair kits, this will not help obtain the achievement
unless you don't get hit once. Along the way you
need to destroy boulders that will be blocking your
path. The best way to do this, is play it until
you memerize it,then hope you get lucky. Good Luck!

(hint: The attack pattern is: rat is front, rat in
middle, then rat on left side and tiger on right side
in the middle(kill tiger first then work on the rat,
run to open the chest quickly, Knock over the boulders
in the path(right as you do the last of four boulders
the rats will appear immediately.)
one rat in front on left and one on right near middle
(take out rat in front first, then one in middle),
one tiger in front and one rat in the middle and one
rat in back (Wait around left side back to take out the
rat then the right middle rat. Last the front left
tiger) , one rat is front/right
side and one tiget on front/left side and one
rat is back on right side(This is the only one that
gave me problems over and over. After you knock
over the third boulder they will appear. Stay on the
front right side of the cart as you push it and
run straight backwards to hit the first rat. After
battle keep running back and hit the encounter circle
to kill another rat, then run though the middle of the
carts to get the tiger.) Lastly two rats in front.
(This is easy, just wait right in front and you
can link the two of them.))

It took me about 8 tries to get a perfect on this, but
I also didn't have this helpful little guide. If you
follow the directions above you will get the
achievement. After multiple tests these are the best
ways to engage the enemies. Yes, a little frustrating,
but the door at the beginning was more challenging than
this. Afterwards you get a cool c/s! Be prepared for a
battle. You need to fight a couple tigers. You will get
the boss battle music this time, but they are the same
as the tigers you fought on the trail.
===============================================================


5.24 Jibral
-----------

This town and the castle are very big. I am not going
to give a walkthrough of everything in this area. It
would be too much information. To do the following
it can take a full 1-2 hours. I will tell you certain
interest points, but that it about it. You really should
explore this city and the castle completely. Talk to every
person you come across for more background information.
Some people you will have a scene with when you aproach.
Check all the buildings, there is an accessory, spell,
and item shop. The spell shop has a great selection,
buy them all. One accessory shop you can not access yet.
Check the bookshelves in the town and castle. There are
many, many books about the wizard story and the robot
one. I think the wizard story goes from 4-16 here.
You check check all objects for additional items. As
you talk to people from the town you learn after you explore
you should go to the inn. Right past the inn is a bridge,
which if you go under you will find a person that collects
"nothing". Of course "nothing" refers to all the times
you examine things and got no items, so "nothing" appears.
At this point I had close to 300 nothings, and after this
area about 350. You will get 3-4 items for this. As you
enter the castle there is a warp device in front of you.
Activate it and head in the castle after fully exploring
the town. Make sure you check every room in the castle
too. When you are done exploring go exit the castle.
You will get a c/s with the king. After that walk up to
the king again for another c/s. After this talk to the
king and Zola each again. Seems that you need to head to
the lab. You should already know where this is, but if
you don't, it is the door on the left wall from where
you enter the interior of the castle. Check this area out,
then talk to Zola here. Choose to return to her quarters
with her for some more information. Finally time to
return to the inn. And so the ominous night began.....

You can an awesome c/s! Enjoy it while you can. You have
some more button mashing to do. It is fairly easy this time
around. When you pull the fortress all the way in you
recieve another achievement, so congratulations!
==================================================================


5.25 Flying Fortress Revisited
------------------------------

Ok, back again. It seems our goal is to take out the
eternal engines. First head down the stairs. There is one
chest in this area, so grab it. There is a long path you
can run down into a pitch black area. If you press A while
all the way against the wall here you will get the spell
shadowra. Head into the door to the right of the elevator.
Keep going throught the hall into another room with a chest.
The chest contains the elevator key. There is also another
chest in here with a level 4 spell you should grab. Next
head in the elevator and deeper whithin. This area is a
little confusing. I took a right at the beginning and entered
a room with a chest on the right here. Grab the chest and
head back out. Continueing to the right you run into a dead
end with a chest to open. Now head back to the elevator and
take a left this time. Head into the first door on your left.
Going straight is blocked by a lazer. In this room go through
the red lazer which calls a robot to battle. Kill it and head
through the door and in the next room take a left first
to grab another item. Finally head through the door straight
ahead in to the Central Shaft. Zola will deactivate 1 of 6
eternal engines in this area.

Now exit this hall. Remember where the blue lazer was
blocking the path? Good, take a left when you exit the
hall to go deeper in the fortress this way. Enter this
first door on your left for an item. Continue down the
hall and into another door at the end. There are a bunch
of mobs in this room. Kill them all and explore. Head
through the only other door you can exit from now. Be
prepared for another boss battle.

Boss Battle
Silent ku
------------

Level 24
Jobs: Default job skills, Shu and Maru- Generalist
Jiro-Shield, Kluke-

This guy uses guns to attack and he is the hardest
boss thus far, at least to me. He is not especially
strong or challenging, just tougher than the
others we have fought up till now. He has a multi-hit
move that can cause some major damage. Sometimes
in the range of 150-200 hp. Keep hitting him with
watera and watera sword. Maru should charge attack.
Use Jiro to heal up the party as needed. He goes
into Gunman(sp??) pose after a while, he will
counter all attack in this mode. Try not to
charge past when his next turn will come because
of this. It can become a problem if you don't.
Wait until he uses an attack against you again before
you hit him. He also has an all area lazer attack that
can cause 100-150 point of damage to all the
characters. If you use this strategy you will be fine
and he will go down easy enough.

Head through the door and deactivate another engine.
The lazer will disengage and you can head through the
other door now. You will hit another checkpoint and
face another battle.

Boss Battle
Turbulent Mai
------------

All I can say is finally some tough battles.
This guy is like a samurai. The first attack I used
watera and he hit back with turbulence which switches
all the characters formation. You will have to spend
your first round fixing it. So try hitting with
shadowa and shadowa sword. Shadow seems to cause
major damage to him. His attacks do 100+ damage,
so watch out and heal often. He will fal quickly
if you keep this up.

Head through the door and deactivate another engine.
Halfway there... Back in the other room, exit the now
unblocked door. Go in the door on the right and fight
two groups of robots. Enter the door straight ahead
for two more chests. Back in the hallway you can only
go one way, the other is blocked by a lazer. You will
enter a room with a much needed save point and healing
machine. Head out the door to the left of the save point.
Fight the robot here and enter the next room. Yet
another engine you deactivate. Back in the room with
the save point you enter another boss battle.

Boss battle
Heat-wave Sai
-------------

Level 25
Setup:same

The guy isn't too tough. Hit him with winda and
Winda Sword. After a while he will start holding
bombs in his hand. Attack his hand with flara
and flara sword to damage him. If you don't do
this he will attack with multiple bombs and
cause 150-200 damage to all characters. After
you kill him remember to heal up and save
again.

Head back to where the lazer was and continue
down that hall. Go into the first door on the right,
trip the lazer and grab the chest. Fight the robot
on the way out and head further down the hall.
Head left into the next door. Open the chest there.
Go down the hall to a dead end and open a chest.
Head back and take a right into another door.
You will zone into a room with a teleporter.
Run down the ramp and save your game. Another
checkpoint and another boss battle.

Boss battle
Raging Kesu
------------

Level 25
Setup:Same

Use shadowa and shadowa sword again. His attacks
are very fast, but extremely weak. He falls
quickly.

One more eternal engine down and one more to
go. You need to split up at this time. Don't
worry, Zola takes one way and you take the other.
Save your game here. You enter a hall with three
lazers. I actually managed to run through the first
and third one without tripping them. You just need to
time it right. Even if you hit them just keep running
and exit. Be ready for another fight.

Boss Battle
Szabo
------------

Level 25
Setup:same

Kill the robots first with attacks and spells like
watera. Concentrate on Szabo after with shadowa and
shadowa sword again. Charge up with maru and keep
pounding away. Szabo will fall before long, and that
is the end of him. Again make sure you SAVE YOUR
GAME!! You can unlock another achievement now.
Time for another mini-game.
==============================================================


5.26 Mechat Mini-game
---------------------

This game can be difficult or easy depending on your
skill. I tryed easy mode first and completed it with
no damage, but I did not recieve the achievement. If
you just want to continue the story then go for easy
and you should have no problem. If you want the
achievement it will be a little tougher on normal.
The main difference is on easy the gun does not
overheat and on normal it does. So on normal you need
to fire a little and stop for a little. If you overheat
you will not get a perfect. Pressing B will also fire
missiles. These do way more damage than the machine gun,
so fire missle whenever you have a clearing to. In
fact I recommend only using the machine gun to shoot
down missiles and air mines. You should use the missles
to attack Nene himself. The missile refills come quick
enough that you should not run out of them. If you
do it will only be for a second, so just fire the
machine gun at him while you have to. His attack pattern
is front, then back, after he will appear on your left
side, from here he will rotate between left and right
until he takes enough damage. Another c/s, then
he will be in front of you attacking again. Keep
pounding at him and he will fall shortly. It only
took me three tries on normal to get a perfect and
the achievement. Congratulations on a job well
done.
===================================================================


5.27 Jibral Castle
------------------

When you have control talk to the guy to your
left and you will get a special card to enter Cafe
Jibral. One of the other soldiers across the room
will give you another special cards. Search all of
the tables. Talk to Zola when you are ready to continue.
Congratulations you just made it to disc number2!!:)
====================================================================


5.28 Jibral Town
----------------

Back into the town you are told to talk to all the
people again for maybe some rewards....So around
the city once again to talk to everyone, it sucks,
but you do get some great items. You can go into
the Cafe now and also buy things from the other
accessory shop. Make sure you stop in all the
houses for new items too. The spell has an updated
list, you should buy everything. Your special cards
you can trade in at the cafe. The street vendors
will give you items as well as the other people.
Stop by the vase shop to pick up something to give
the chief of lago village. Talk to the "nothing"
guy again. I just hit over 400 and got yet another
item for the collection. Go to the inn when you
are ready to continue on. It seems you now need
to make a ring for Kluke. This is a fun little
mini-game.

Ok, so let me explain something about this. You
should read the tutorial first. Here is how it works.
You start by buying a gem. Now lets say you by the
100 gold one first. You will have left over powder.
The powder will be worth 80 gold, so you will have
80 left. Now say you bought the 20 gold one first,
you would already have 80 gold left and with the
powder you would gain another 100 gold, leaving you
with 180 gold to continue useing. It is up to you how
you want to make the ring. But after the first gem,
the more stats you lose by combinding, the more
money you gain. I have seen Jiro gain 1200 gold
from using a gem that wiped out his stats. Next time
he can by a higher costing gem though with better
stats. In the end even it out as you want. I made
sure my magic attack and attack where maxed out.
Kluke is a blm for me, so MA was something I absolutaly
needed. On another note, maxing out attack gives about
10-15 more to attack, but maxing out magic attack
can give you 150+ to your attack. Same with defense
and magic defense. Even maxed out these stats add
about 10-15 more. You can even get hp and mp+,
but I am not sure how this is determined. I am
positve there is no way to make a perfect ring.
So concentrate on what you want most, and if you
don't like it start over. By the way, you get to
keep and equip both rings. Have fun with it.
=============================================================


5.29 Lago Village
-----------------

We are going to take a little side trip, because
I messed up earlier and we have things to do here.
First if you have the vase from Jibral, go back
and give it to the chief, in return he will give
you 99 of them?? Next he will unlock all of the
locked chests in this town so you can get the
items. Lastly check in all the houses now. There
are alters in most houses and shops. Visit all
six alters and Maru will tell you to go into
the town hall. Go to the alter there and you
will get a fire ring for your effort. Ok, that
is it for now. Warp back to Jibral and time to
move forward.
==============================================================


5.30 Jibral castle
------------------

When you teleport back there will be a cute
girl near you. Talk to her and go to the cafe
with her. In here a customer says something
about designer vases being popular before. I am
not sure what to do with them yet. Talk to the
guy at the counter to telot sure what this does
yet either, but exit the city afterwards. It's
time to get going.
=============================================================


5.31 Jibral Highlands
---------------------

Monster Fight!
--------------

Cockatrice--->bug things
------------------------

On the cliff by the castle you get a chest. There
are a lot of mobs in this area. They pop all over.
Fight to gain some more ranks and levels, or at
least make sure you kill one of each new enemy
for your monster dictionary thing...Use winda on
the flying foes and grounda on the land foes. And
holy crap, I don't know if it's grounda itself or
my new ring with magic attack 150+, but grounda
is doing 500+ on enemies in this area. BLM is not
even my job at this point I have it switched to
support magic.:o If you run south you will find
two more chests by the Mountain. Follow the mountains
to the right if you are facing them. You will find
a few more chests in site over there. Now head back
by the castle and if you are facing south head over
to your left. Another chest here on the peninsula
shaped thing here. Then head south following the
ocean. This long path leads to exile forest,
there are two chests on this path.

(You should really visit the Gorgo Village through
Exile Forest. It is an optional area, but getting
there isn't tough. Please look in the Side Quest
Section below for instructions.Not to mention there
is another warp device to activate there.)

On your way back you will see the same
chest on the cliff by the entrance to the path.
Collect this one now. ok, time to start making
our way to the next area. Facing south from the
castle you want to go right. You are going to the
dirt road type area. The monsters are even tougher
in this area, so if you really want gold and
some levels this is the place for now. Shadowa
seems to work best against the orange grunts.
When you come to a fork in the road, head left
to grab two chests, then turn and go the other
way. Stick to the right side for yet another chest.
Just keep sticking to the right and you will find
all the chests until you finally reach Laser Fields.
I would recommend level outside for a while though.
The experience is great and it shouldn't take to
long. I was level 29 when I entered Laser Fields.
==============================================================


5.32 Laser Fields
-----------------

Activate the warp device right away. Just entering
this area you can already tell it is going to be a
pain in the @$. It is more open then the areas
we have been to lately. These purple things pop
out of the ground then continue to fly and attack
you...They are easy to kill though. One hit from
a physical attacker. Go down the little hill and
kill the crab things on the right for a chest.
Move forward and kill the bear in the way for
another chest. Now come out of that area and go
to the left side of the hill if you are facing
down to fight some purple things and get another chest.
Go to the three way intersection you can see. First
take a right and get the chest, then head up the middle
path to grab another chest. Now back and take the
left path up. At this intersection take another
left to grab 3 chests. Go to the other direction.
Now you need to fight three prye-rats. One grounda
attack will finish each group off. You will get a c/s
at the top of this hill. What the hell is going
on??? This is where things get interesting. If
seems a "Death Star" is trying to kill you. You
HAVE to keep moving, the hits from it only drain
hp, but many can be damage and they keep firing.
This part is going to be funny, irritating, and
everything else inbetween. Run to the left quick
and grab the chest, then follow the cliff down
quickly to another one. If you head to the right
you can get another chest. Then go to the path the
two rats are protecting and kill them. They both
lead over into the same area. Try to make your way
to the left top of this area to grab two chests,
while dogding rats and beams. Then take the upper
path over to another chest and then keep heading
left and up to fight a centipede.Hit the centipede
with watera and he will die fast.The beams will stop
chasing you in this area for now. They start up
again right after the battle.

In this area head up to the top and look for the two
land crabs and grab the chest right in between them.
Then head back down to the bottom and around. Grab
the chest, then run back up where you will see two
more chests. One is in the cave, then over to the
next area. Finally you get another c/s and you
made it to safety!
===============================================================


5.33 Baroy Town
---------------

This town is small and easy to explore, so enjoy
the break while you can. To your left is a chest.
Start with the building on the right, the inn, and
make your way around. In the houses you can read
many of the robots stories here. There is a warp
device to activate over on the right side of this
area. Visit all the houses saving the big one in the
middle for last. At the store make sure you equip
negotiations if you have it. All items will be 50%
off, this will save mega money. You can buy new spells,
accessories, and some good items. Do not bother buying
mega medicine anymore. If you buy medicine instead
which sells for 30 gold(15 with 50% 0ff) compared to
mega medicines for 100 gold. The reason I say this is
because one of the robots iin this town will turn
you medicine into mega medicine for FREE! You can
only do one at a time, but still you save a lot of
gold. If fact if you gave the patients, this is
one of them tricks on how to make UNLIMITED GOLD!!
When you are ready continue through the door in
the middle to the temple. You get a scene here,
when finished head through the door next to the warp
device. Talk to the robots in this area to find out
you can get rid of all the blue barriers that have been
in the way. Head back to the temple and through
the left door. Another battle awaits!

Boss Battle
Blazing Kirin
-------------

Level 29
Setup: Shu-swm, Zola-Generalist, Jiro-support, kluke-blm
Maru-Guardian

This guy takes some strategy to beat. Everyround attack
with watera from your mages first. This will extinguish
the flames on Kirin. Watera sword will not work so
don;t even try to hit him with it unless his flames
are already out. After you can attack with a melee.
If you don't cast watera first he will counterattack
every time. As soon as his flames come back do this again.
His counterattack is called Blazing Pillar and will to
80-100 damage to one character. Is you use flara or any
fire attack it will heal him.So make sure you stay away
from this. His hind-leg attack only does 15 damage, but
also stuns one of the heroes. He has an AOE, but it only
does about 30-60 damage. Keep it up and it will be over
soon. Congratulations all the blue barriers in the
world are unlocked!

I don't have a list of all the barriers that are unlocked
yet, but as I go on and Find them, I will give you the
locations at the end of this walkthrough. Get the chests
in this room and head back to the place by the warp
device to grab more items from examining the area in
there. There is also a new item, accessory, and spell
shop in there from the robots you freed. The spell
shop and item shop have exectionally great things.
Make sure negotiation is equipped and load up on
everything that you need. I wouldn't recommend the
unlimited gold trick above( as it takes to long,
and also it is quicker to kill enemies for gold
while you level too), but it you are a little short
on cash, go ahead. I only use this trick to save
money on buying mega medicine myself. Head through
the door near the new spell shop.
=================================================================


5.34 Underground River
----------------------

Monster Fight!
--------------

Visage Viper--->Kelolon
-----------------------

This is area simple to navigate. The path only goes
one way, so you can't really get lost. Open the chests
on your way and kill some mobs. The Kelolon are easy
foes that will flee from you. Just like you did with the
wolves at the beginning, you should back attack as many
of these as possible. We want to make sure by the end
of the game we hit 100 back attacks for another
achievement. The snakes in this area have an attack that
will turn you into a kelolon, but your whm should have
cure kelolon spell to take care of this. If not you will
return to normal right after the battle anyways. One
regular ground attack will kill all the kelolons to make
the battles easier. If you take control of a Viper
with the Assassin's Control you can wipe out the whole
enemy party with tempest. Watch out because very soon
you will run into MOON BEAMS again!! Ok, now this is
getting old very fast... At least we know we are on our
way to shut these damn things off. The area is only very
small here so keep moving foward and they will stop. as you
come across the path ahead you will notice a bunch of kelolon
right below you. The perfect place to continue your assault on
them.:) When the path split stay on the upper part to get a
chest, then go back and down the lower part. Again go straight
to get a chest then take the left you past. Go kill all the
kelolon in the way for another chest and go up the little ramp.
Follow the path around the corner and you will see another
chest on a cliff which you should get. Go back down that
little ramp for another chest on the path going down. Then
back up again and follow the path forward. You should have
managed to hit level 30 with everyone by now, so
congratulaions on unlocking another job! You see a save
point ahead so save your game. If you are facing the save
point you can head left or right. Head right up the path
first to enter Kelolon heaven. There is a blue barrier
in the way but if you take it out, you can go in and
continue to get your back attack count way up! They are
going to start fleeing so run right up and keep attacking
one after the other. If you want to try another
achievement try linking ten groups together, they are
fast so I stuck with back attack, but you may be able to
pull it off here. Anyways kill as many as possible and
grab the two chests. Head back to the save point and the
other direction this time. You will run into toripo again.
==================================================================


5.35 Ancient Factory
--------------------

Monster Fight!
--------------

Gnashing Imp Trap--->Fireworks Rat
Gnashing Imp Trap--->Fat Pack Rat
(Hover Claxon can use Reflect, be carefully before casting.)
------------------------------------------------------------

Ok. yet another Ancient place. You will be thrown in to
fight with some new robots that have shields. You can
NOT beat these guys. After your first hit on them flee
from the battle. You must avoid all the robots with
shields in this area. The other ones you can fight and
beat but not them. In this half on the room there
are two chests to grab. Do so, and then climb the stairs
to grab another chest and head back over them. Now run
like hell to the left and you will see some red arrows
on the ground. Run up the steps and the conveyor belt
will bring you to the other side. Go to the upper right
to grab another chest, then Head in the bottom left
door, the other has a field inside it. In this new hall
take your first left and then left again to see two chests
right there. If you go through the door on the left there,
it will take you back into the first room and you can ride
the belt back to where you started. If you don't want to
go there turn around and go through the other door across
from you. You will put in a fight the minute you enter.
You can grab some chests after the battle. You get a much
needed spell here and you get a chance to restore hp and
mp. there is also a save point so enjoy. When yo are ready
head through the other door. This area connects to the
other door in the hallway we came from so don't worry about
going around that way. Keep going straight, because
going to the right will only land you in more needless
battles. Ahead you go in to some double doors into a huge
circular room. Remember watera and watera sword on the robots
to cause some huge damage. In the center you can get two chests.
Fight here if you want some experience or rank point and then
head up the stairs and the ramp when you want to continue.
Rats will pop in front of you so be ready to fight as
you climb. At the top something is amiss...There are a
bunch of robots but they seem turned to stone and the
only thing moving is a rat. Kill it and and the robot
he was in front of will come to life! The robots all
come to life in a certain order. So run around fighting
the ones that come to life until you kill them all. MAKE
SURE YOU DO THIS!!! a chest will appear after this with
Mystery Part Beta after! Finallt we have the second part.
As you run up the next ramp a Jumbo Ghost will appear. Use
Shina and shina sword, he is not hard to beat. Ahead you
will fight a broken barrier robot, kill it to got the
broken barrier device and head though the door to exit.
As soon as you exit you get a c/s. Just run around in
side the barrier for a while and the story will continue.
After this you need to go up to the barrier and choose to
shut it off in order to continue on.
==================================================================


5.36 Ancient Prison-moat
------------------------

Ok, so they didn't come up with the most original names
in the game. I mean come on this is the 4-5 "ancient"
place we have been so far. At least the dungeons and
background is beautifully down. The naming convention
is really starting to suck though... Anyways examine the
cell and soon you will be out. Check all six cells in this
little area. You can't let Jiro out yet, but talk to him
anyways. Activate the warp device in one of the cells.
There are a few chests to grab here and some rats to kill.
The fights area easy because you are solo. As soon as you
press A to open the cell, press X immediatly after and you
will get the first strike on the rats. You should kill
them both before they can even attack. Save your game back
at your cell.

Continue through the big door at the end when you are ready.
As soon as you enter the next room you will fight the robot
here and he will drop the dungeon key. Go back and let Jiro
out of his cell. Exit "D-block, mighty mighty D-block" and
use watera sword on any robots you encounter to kill them
with a single hit. In this area run to the right and you will
see a switchboard with red and blue lights. Examine it twice
and then head all the way down the hall and enter the door
on the right. In the first cell here to the right is a ghost
that will appear, and whether you attack it or it attacks
you, this ghost will cast zephrus on the party to heal them
and he will flee from battle. You can not kill this ghost
and he will be there again and again. Check the rest of the
cells to release Marumaro and Zola. You can get some more
chests and fight a copper poo snake. It seems Kluke is being
held in a different area. Head back out into the hall and
run back to the red and blue switchboard and examine it again.
You will notice that all of the lights are turned on and they
will mention that is seems to have something to do with the
middle cells. This one actually took me a minute to figure
out. Then I began to realize that red obviously means stop
and blue probably means go. So I went back to the cells and
noticed that only thing you can really do is open or close
them. So close all of the cell doors on both sides except
for the cells right in the center on both the left and the
right. This will do the trick and you can continue. Right
after the door you are forced into another battle. Head forward
to fight some more robots after. You come to a T intersection
ahead. Take a right and make sure you go into the door down
this end first. All that is here, is a chest with a white
barrier, but at least you know the location for next time.
Head back into the other hall and head down to the left end
this time to enter the door. After a few steps you will get
a c/s and it's time for battle!! Save your game before
you near Nene, because you have the choice to. There is
a save point of the side of you. Enjoy the new battle
music, it is kinda cool. Like a bad @$ rock song in
slow motion, real slow, but still great. Take out the
group of robots. With no black magic rely on Mow Down
and charged monk attacks to damage everyone. Shina is also
great if you don't want to wait for 8 robots to keep
attacking over and over. The first group will fall and now
it's time for the second. Things are not looking good....
=============================================================

The Chase is on Mine-game
-------------------------

Thime to run like hell and dodge robots coming at you.This
can be either hard or easy. SUrprizingly you can get close to most
robots where it may look like you are going to hit them but
manage to squeeze right through. Try to avoid as many battle
as possible. When I got close to the robot I hit A. I am
not sure if it is automatic or if you need to do this, so
do it anyways. The robots you hit you need to fight. This
only has two rounds and is over very quickly.
============================================================

Canyon-East
-----------

This place is very wide open and has no set direction in which
to travel. This will make it somewhat annoying, but not bad.
Enemy encounters are numerous here so level up while you can.
First off you should head to your right to look for some
chests.You can enter back into the prison from over on this
side. After you scope the area out, go back to where you started
and head left. The is towards the red arrow on the compass.
You will see a town with a green barrier, but do not enter yet.
If you enter you can not escape. Grab the two chests you see
on the cliffs and then head up the higher ground by the town.
You will see a bridge you can cross if you would like to go
over the gorge and collect one more chest. Again battles
are still numerous so get ranks up and do what you gotta do
here. I word of advice, Kluke will be gone for a little while.
This would be an excellent opportunity to level Jiro as a
black mage too. Only do this if your ranks for whm, generalist,
and either support or barrier mage is high enough. If you
can get blm rank high enough, it would be nice to set blm
as another skill when you go to whm again. It will give Jiro
I little something more to do than sit around waiting to heal
allies. Enter the town when you are finally ready to.
============================================================

Pachless Town
-------------

You can not exit this town once you enter it. Once you enter
you will talk to Daveela. Run around the city and examine
everything that you can. Buy what you need from the accessory
and item shop. Check behind some houses for chests and a nearby
warp device to activate. When you are done scoping out the
city, head back to the entrance and talk to Daveela. After
the scene the villagers are not very friendly towards you.
Head up to the blue house which belongs to the village elder.
It seems they had a not so nice run in with Nene. Had
back and talk to Daveela again to try smahing the barrier with
magic again. It doesn't work. Some scenes will play and it
will be dark out. You notice a blue light behind the elders
house. Head back to the house and go up to the elders room which
is now unlocked. Examine the vase in the room ti fund a control
panel. Hit the switch on it and head back downstairs to find
another door unlocked, go though it and head outside. Enter the
capel to here another story. Next head down the latter to the
Underground Pachless Town.

===============================================================

Underground Pachless Town
-------------------------

Follow the path until you come into a larger room. In this room
head left to grab a chest first. Go up the steps located by here
and grab another chest. Now head over to the right side of the
room. Go up another set of stairs to grab another chest. Next head
on the conveyor belt in this room and ride it. In thie next
part ride the belt again. Hit the switch here and ride another
belt back to the beginning. Now head through the other door in
this room. Run to the end for a chest and hop on the conveyor
belt. When you get off there is a switch you can hit if you want
to go back again. Head through the door into the next area.
Follow the path around through another door and be ready for
another boss battle.
----------------------------------------------------------------


Boss Battle
Scything Skull Spider
---------------------

Level 34
Setup: Shu-SWM,Jiro-BLM,Maru-GEN, Zola-ASN

There are two ways to fight this boss. You can either hit the helmet
untill it dissappears and then hit the monsters head for some
good damage. Otherwise you can do what I did and just attack the
body and forget about the helmet. You will still do good damage
to the body and the boss will still fall fast.He has an attack
that will kill a party member four turns after he casts it.
I had the spell cast on me and the boss was dead before it took
effect. In the middle of the battle the boss will use a move that
summons four skeletons. Just use watera or some other wide area
attack to kill them and bring the focus back to the boss. This
is not too hard, good luck!
------------------------------------------------------------------

After the battle choose not to leave. Head through the next door
and down the hall. You will get a very nice ring here that you
can equip. You will also notice a white barrier door here. Now
head all the way back to the beginning and out. Back in town
you will be controling Maru. Put the device in the machine and
watch the c/s. The Town is now free! Stay at the inn and run around
checking out areas that were blocked before. You can now get some
new chests. There are two up by the pond side by side, another behind
the items shop, and a last one by where the cows were by the ponds.
While still in control of MaruMaro you can leave the town.
=================================================================

Canyone-East again
------------------

Head to your right to see a large stone that towers high. The moon
lasers will blast it down making a path avross the canyon. The
elder returns and you get the Green device. Go across the stone
and head left to grab a chest. This area is very big and can be
confusing. Back at the pillar head straight for another chest.
Keep heading straight ignoring the big cliff to the left for
another chest. Keep going straight for another chest and go up
the cliff to the right and to the end for another chest. Now
head back to the end of this cliff and go up the other one in front
of you. You will be on a high cliff overlooking the ocean where you
can grab another chest. You will also see a chest on a lower cliff
so make your way there now. Now you need to follow this huge
penesula area to the left fully exploring for a couple more chests
you will come across. You will notice darker ground area where
there are some mobs waiting there. Do not go near these yet, we
are going to explore some more. To the south of this area there
are a bunch more chests to grab. You may need to open the world
map by selecting warp to understand just how big this area is and
how you should explore. On a snow path over this way the will see
a bunch of robots. You might just be able to get your 10 fight
encounter achievement here. I managed to link 8 of them, but then
gave up. I will come back later and try. There is this giant blue
thing circling the area here. If you run into it you will enter a
new area the Mecha Base.We don't need to go here yet so wait. When
you are ready go back up to the northwest, we are looking for a giant
crater surrounding by robots and horse things with very big guns.
When you near it you will enter the area. SAVE YOUR GAME FIRST!! THIS
NEXT PART IS AN ACHIEVEMENT! Look right below this at ACHIEVEMENT
WARNING to learn more about it! Catch Kluke by hitting A at the right
time here. Then you will get a c/s.
==================================================================

Nene's Fortress
----------------

Ok, now I said the moon lasers look like a certain something from
"Star Wars", but calling this that would be much more accurate. I
would use the term, but while I was checking out another faq about
achievements I noticed someone copied the term I used earlier. So
I don't get blamed for plaigerism(sp?) I am not going to use the
term here even though they probably took it from my walkthrough.

(Thanks goes out to D Drake for correcting the "Catch Kluke"
and "don't get stomped by the mechanical osterish" achievements!)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
ACHIEVEMENT WARNING!!!!!!
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Now there are quite a few achievements coming up, so I will let
you know as we go. The first achievement is "rescue Kluke from
falling" You can do this, but it is a bit tricky. You need to hit
the A button exactly on time and you need to be very quick about
it. Keep trying and eventually you will get it! Now there are four
more that deal with this area and they are: "Reach Nene before the
bomb goes off", get a "perfect on moon laser mini-game, and
"Remove the collar from choking Kluke." The last
is "not being stomped on by Osterish machine??" I don't know the name
of it but you need to press A fast enought that you don't get stomped
on and the battle menu comes up and you can flee. You need to do this
on the first try, if you try again, even if you don't get stomped
you will not get an achievement. So get it right the first time
or restart again.

Ok, now for the strategy. An hour is still plenty of time. The timer
will stop if: you enter a battle, when you are saving at a save
point, if you heal at the healing machine, and lastly I assume c/s.
(Not sure if we will see any yet. If you need to walk away from your
xbox, just hit the controller button to bring up your gamertag and
status info. This place consists on many floors, 5 to be exact.

1St floor
---------

After the save and heal machine head to your first left. You can get
a chest at each end here. After you get them head over the path to
the right and continue straight through a door to the 1st floor
sand chamber. Ride the lift over and be ready for a boss battle.

Boss battle
Land Shark A/B
---------------

Level 36
Setup:same

The land shark seems to take a lot of damage from watera and watera
sword. You will get a message saying it is cooling down when you
hit it with water, so keep doing it. His attacks can do 150-200
damage to a single target or to all targets so watch out. After
a while he will transform into Land Shark B. Use the same attacks
and it won't last long.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

2nd Floor
---------

A teleporter will appear after you kill it. Take it up to the
second floor. I have about 45 minutes at this time, but I have
been typing this while playing. So I think I am going to hold
off an typing for a while. Again there is a save point and a healing
machine, so use them. Head through the door and it is set up the
same way, so do the same thing as last time. To the left you get the
spell regenera. So make sure you search for it. You will get the
spell resistus at the other end. Cross the bridge to the right to
run into another chest and head for the exit. You will fight a few
monsters on the way there. When you head through the door you
enter the 2nd floor Storm chamber and time for another fight!
Guess who it is?? Never thought we would see this guy again.

Boss Battle
Szabo
-----------

Level 37
Setup:Same

Well here we go, a little bit of a challenge for a fight this
time around. First you have to fight Sai, Ku, Mai, and Kesu.
I told out Sai first, the guy with the bombs. He has a lot
of health, but he also has an attack that can hit everyone for
150 damage alone. Use watera sword and especially watera to hit
all targets. After that you can really focus on any order you
want. The rest fall easy and should not be a problem as long
as you keep your white mage healing constantly. Zola as an
assassin with her double attack hits for 500-600 damage alone.
Watera will do about 500 all about the front and watera sword
the same to one target. Ku will obviously be your last target.
Kill him and be ready for Szabo.

First take out Szabo's cannons. They only have about 500-550 hp.
It should take much to destroy all of them. Only 1-2 rounds should
be dedicated to that. Make sure you cast regenera, Szabo can put
out some major damage to all targets. Again use watera for the cannons
and for Szabo himself. He is strong, but I have faith that you
can take him down. With Szabo dead I think we can be sure that he
won't be back this time! I kinda feel bad for him.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

3rd Floor
---------

Another save point and heal machine. SAVE YOUR GAME ON A
DIFFERNT FILE!! You have another achievement coming up and
it is going to be a pain to get a perfect on. Damn moon!
Just follow the path around. You will be made to fight some
robots which guard the way. Take the Second path to the
right to grab the spell level 6 cure-all! Now go back to the
other side . Head all the way down on the left to grab another
chest. Now head across and contine to exit the room into the
3rd Floor Moon Chamber.

Mini-Game Moon Laser
--------------------

No boss on this floor, but another achievement to get!
This one is another pain. The good thing? You hit a
checkpoint when you enter the room. So if you get hit
once or screw up just let yourself die and you can
continue right here.

Now to get the achievement you must play on normal.
So what the pain about this min-game. Not only can
you not get hit once, but you must also never hit
the moons when there shields are up. In other words
if you hit for 0 damage start over!

Ok, now for the game iteself. You start out nice
and simple. Only the right most moon attacks at
first. So keepyour target on it at all times. Charge
your attack by holding down the button and when it
starts charging fire at it. These moons like to do
quick flips where they don't fire sometimes. This
is why you should always wait till you see the yellow
charging. After the first one is destroyed you must
take out the other two. This part is easy so I leave
it up to you. Sometimes the moons will power up and
start flipping and firing faster. At this time do not
charge your attacks at all unless you are confident
enough to make it. When this ends you go to the other
side and more and harder moons!

This is the hard side that will annoy you and you will
be doing this over and over because of it. At first keep
firing at the moons as they charge. The hard part comes
when the first moon goes down. All three moons power
up and fire rapidly and faster. The only thing that
should give you a real problem is when all three moons
charge at once. You need to tap fire hit over tap fire
hit over and tap fire as fast as possible.Now even this
part with enough practice is not too bad. It might take
a couple tries but thats it. Now the extremely hard part
that will have you cursing and throwing **** around. Two
moons left, you think this would be easier, but you
are very very wrong. With two moons left you can keep
control fairly easy when only one of them is firing, but
the trouble is when both go to fire at the same time.
They both flip and right after you hit the fist, and by
the time you hit the second it's already fired at you.
It would be simple if you could keep firing, but remember
you can't score a 0 damage hit to get a perfect. There is
no real way around this, but pray you are fast enough.

(Hint: There is some order to them, I am just not fast
enough to right them down and try it. For the second set
of moons if you number them 1 2 3 4 from left to right
then 2 will attack first and 1 will attack second. This
should let you get some major damage on them from charging
right aty the beginning. Moon number 1 always seems to attack
the most and be destroyed first. If you can try to spread
damage by not charge attacking numer 1, but charging any
of the other two moons as quick as possible you may be able
to destroy the first one with major damage already on the
two others. How does this help? Well if you can get rid
of the other two shortly after the first, you might be able
to get around some of the powered up attacks they do
conseculatively. About 20 times later and following my
advice about learning how to space the damage out, I did
it! Congratulations on another achievement!
-----------------------------------------------------------

4th Floor
----------

Ok, With all that said and done I have abour 25 minutes left
on the timer for the last two floors. K follow the path to
the left and grab level 5 erase. Continue forward and follow
the path to the right. Go straght again fighting some
more robots. After a few more corners you find another chest
with the extractus spell inside. Continue on and outside
for another boss battle.

Boss Battle
Jumbo Mecha Robot
------------------

Level 38
Setup:Same

Yes, another robots battle. You know what to do. Keep hitting
it with watera and watera sword. Keep your white mage healing
at all times. This guy can cause some major damage. After a
while the robots loses it head and about 8 little robots come
out. These guys can be a pain. Everytime you attack one it
counters. If you use magic that hits 4 of them, then the
four will counter attack that one person. So plan carefully.
The first time the head popped off I killed three of the
eight robots and the thing died. Making this the easier
battle yet for me. Hopefully you get this lucky otherwise
it may take a while.

------------------------------------------------------------

5th Floor
---------

Take the first left to grab a treasure chest. You will get
the spell level 5 healus, thank you! Go back and move forward,
to the left another for another chest. You get another spell,
level 5 reflectus. Go back continue forward and go left for
another chest containing Level 5 paralyze. Finally head back,
go forward, to the left again, Grab the chest containing
Level 5 Max HP up! Head out of this room. Get ready for another
boss fight.

Boss Battle
Yasato
------------

Level 38
Setup:same

This battle is not tough at all. Just defend and listen to what
you need to do. I recommend hitting all the robots with shina.
It won't do any damage and it will stun them all so you don't
have to wait while they attack. When Yasato is trying to take
control of his body attack the weapon he is holding. It seems
the sweeper??? is controling him. After 2-3 hits to the sweeper
the battle will end.
--------------------------------------------------------------

Ok so the timer has stopped already and you made it! Congratulations
if you made it to this point you just unlocked another achievement
too. You "made it to Nene before the timer ran out". Now it is
time to get yet another achievement. For this one you need to
get the collar off of Kluke. You will get on screen displays
about what to do. To make it simple though, press down on the
left analog stick and rapidly tap the button that shows on the
screen. You will switch back and forth bettween the characters,
and when the characters switch so do the buttons to press. So
make sure before you start that you know where each button is
on the controller. This is not hard at all. Y
X B
A

See told you it was simple, congratualtions on another
achievement. Now this part is tricky, I read somewhere
you can get another achievement by not getting stomped
by this machine that is coming up. I did this many
times and finally I made it through without being stomped
on, but it didn't give me an achievement. So this means
that the site was either wrong or we are going to have
another encounter with this thing and we need to do it
again. Either way I am not to sure yet and any information
would be appreciated. This is a little easier than the door at
the beginning but is still a pain in the @$. If you
get stomped on just once, give up and let yourself
die by being stomped on some more. You can click try
again and it will let you start this game right from
under the orstirches foot. Another congratualtions for
finishing the second disc!!!!

==========================================================


Devour Village
---------------

Something just doesn't look right about thie place. Search
the old ladys house for items. Then run behind it to activate
the warp device. This town reminds me of Halloween Town from
that Tim Burten movie. Make your way around the village.
Examine everything for items and gold. There are a few
chests hidden around. You can go to the spell, item, and
accessory shop. You should already have all of the spells
you can buy here. Head behind the accessory and item shop
to find the rest of the party. next run over to the save
point for a c/s. Run up to the tree now and press A to
enter a fight. You can not win this fight. So let Shu
die and wake up in the old lady's house again. Head back
outside, Head to the save point to learn to visit the inn.
Kluke has collasped! After the scene talk to the inn
keeper and head up the hill. Now this part is awesome.
Mash the buttons and get ready for a fight. Tension
takes a new part in this battle. After you attack to
much it will say tension is full. Right above attack
choose corpeall and watch what happens!! After the scene
at the inn head up to the tree and fight again.

Boss Battle
Eat-Yeet
------------

Level 38
Setup:Same

Not really much you can do in this fight with only Shu
having a shadow. Defend with all the other characters
unless using a healing item, curing a status ailment,
or hitting the hands to they move and Shu can attack.
Shu should just keep using Flarus sword to cause
some major damage. The boss likes to use paralyze and
poison so make sure you heal them right away, especially
on Shu. Without him you aren't going to get anywhere.
After you beat him head to the exit of the town for
another scene and then leave.

=========================================================


Devour Forest
-------------

Start by heading foward and opening the chest thats
there. Examine the black pedastal near by which you
will need a part to activate. Continue further down
the path. It kinda sucks that only Shu has the shadow
ability, but enemies are not very tough here. This
crazy thing pops out ofthe ground ahead and screams
attacting four groups of Skimmers. Shu's move mow
down and usually take out a whole line of enemies
in one blow. Ok, so the thing mimics grass, be on the
look out for grass/brush coming out of the ground.
Walk forward a little and it will show you a few
treasure chests. As you near them a ghost will appear.
Kill the ghosts and grab the three chests in this area.
One has a key item you will now bring back to the
black stone thing. After you do the tree roots on the
side will disappear and you can continue forward. Open
the two chest and you find Toripo right around the
corner. After you buy what you want head down the left
path to open some more chests. One has the spell level
6 curse! This area is a small circle. SO run around
it to see another black pedastal and the other paths
you can take. You can see some new roots blocking the
way so head down the only other path you haven't yet.
You will get a c/s. At the end of this path take
a right and examine the area for two more chests.
Then head back and go the other direction. There is a
fork in the road up ahead. Take a right first for
another chest and continue up to find another chest.
A ghost will appear in front of it again. Kill it and
grab the item for the pedastal. You will see another
chest near here, if you go near it another screaming
thing will pop and call monsters. Kill it grab the
chest and head back to the fork. Take the left path
this time to head back up and grab a mirror necklace.
Now finally back to the black pedastal to activate it
and go into the area where the roots detracked. You
exit the forest!
======================================================


Giant Snow Fields
------------------

Head straight to grab a chest up on a cliff and you
will spot another chest under you. Go around and grab
it then follow the path in the snow forward. You will
see another chest right on your right if you follow
it. Move forward some more and you will spot another
chest straight ahead, grab it and you should see a
second one too. Keep following the path and it will
split. Head to the left and back first to go on a
cliff and collect two chests here. Go back and continue
left and up and around because the path is a circle.
Make sure to check out the right side for a chest.
Continue to follow the path and you will come around
anarea you can enter, but wait to do so. Keep following
the path untill it splits left and right. The left
path dissappears here but follow it's direction to
another chest. Then go back and head down the right
path staying close to the mountains. When you see an
area you can enter, do so, to grab another chest. Exit
here and continue following the path down a hill. There
are three chests in this area so grab them and head
all the way up to the place you can enter again.
======================================================


Noluta Village
---------------

Everyone in this village is frozen. Make your way around
talking to all the frozen people and the people in the
houses. Maru, Jiro, and Kluke will each get scenes
in which there inner light begins to shine. Once
you activate all three of them you will have to battle
your shadows like Shu did in order to get them back.
With your whm and blm just defend and keep healing
until corpeall magic is full and unleash it to win.
Maru shadow will hit for a LOT of damage. It was
hitting me for 350-450 with monk as a job. Keep using
healing items untill you can release your huge attack
and finish it. Afterwards you can warp, but before
you do talk to the soldier by the inn and the one
inside the inn to learn that you need to head to Jibral
and that the king knows what to do. MAKE SURE you
activate the warp outside the inn before you finally
warp back. Also there are two chests in this area
you can grab right now.
=======================================================

Jibral
------

When you arrive talk to the girl on the side of you.
I would take the trip to the cafe with her just to
find out what is going on. You hear a bunch of new gossip.
Something about the Killer bandits treasure....Something
about Donpa and opening chests in wilderness camp....
something about designer vases(which we have plenty of)..
.. a scene with people from the village....and something
about the Gorgo Village being to the south through an
enchanted forest. (I entered this forest earlier in the
game, I think it was called Exile Forest. I was not sure
if the story would take us there later so I did not
bother going through. I don't think the story is going
to take us there though, so if you want to check it out
go ahead and take a side trip anytime).

Mini-Side Quests
----------------

-Warp to Wolderness camp--Talk to Donpa tp recieve an
item and open the chest with a blue barrier around it.

-Warp to Devour Village--Talk to the girl near the save
point to get the cookie recipe--warp to Jibral and talk
to lady in cafe to learn where to get ingredients. Zephr
chocolot you should have gotten from lady after saving
Jibral earlier. Can still get now, across from cafe.
The la Mountain camp we haven't gone to yet, but you
get other part of recipe there.

-Warp to Talta Vilage --Talk to Chief to get item. I
Have not done this yet.
---------------------------------------------------------

Head up into the castle when you are ready to continue.
Go to the 3rd floor and head to the left side of the
throne room hall to enter King Jibral's quarters. Talk
to him and head down to the lab. You get a password here.
Now warp right back to the village.
========================================================

Noluta Village unfrozen
------------------------

When you get close to the machine you will hit a check-
point. You know what this means. Get ready for another
boss battle.

Boss Battle
Azure Sentinel
--------------
Level 40
Setup:Same

Don't bother with watera, water only does about 50
damage at most to this guy. Stick with flarus and
flarus sword. They will tell you that iron gets
softer when heated, meaning that the more you hit
him with fire the more damage you will be able to do
with the next attack. He has a counter attack Rocket
punch which does a LOT of damage, so keep everyone
full. This attack can do 300-500 damage to a single
target. Keep it up he shouldn't last too long, expecially
with corpeal attacks.

After the battle you will get the white device. Now you
should have the blue, green, red, and white devices to open
chests. I don't know exact locations of all the barriers
and chests, but plan to include one as soon as I find out
the location of all.

Check out the shops and buy items, spells, and accessories
that you need. There is not too much to do. Stay at the
inn and head for the back gate to exit. You will see something
shiny on the ground to collect and Toripo will show up.
Give him the item for a crystal necklase and you can
buy whatever you need with metals. Exit the town when
you are ready. The path on the world map is straight
forward so just follow it to the next town.
========================================================

Sheep Tribe Camp-Lal Mountains
------------------------------

Talk to all of the people here. One traveler talks about
the killer pirates treasure being somewhere near the
spires. Another talks about how many barrier treasure there
are in total. 10 blue, 8 red, 5 green, 8 white, and 9
black so we have plenty of treasure hunting later.
All of the shops here have the same items and spells
as the other towns you have visited. They guys around
the fire in the middle have some information too.
Talk to the old guy who loses his memory, then talk to
the kid behind him and follow his instructions. If
you talk to the guy from behind over and over he will
tell the story of all the other towns problems and finally
say something about the spires. Activate the warp device
in the back and you can leave again. (I couldn't get the
item for the cookie recipe yet, so come back and try
later.)
========================================================

Southern Lal Mountains
----------------------

This is the world map. You are going to keep continueing
down the bridges. The path is pretty linear, you can't
really get lost. Collect the chests on the way. Finally
you will come upon a RockWind wolf ghost blocking the
path, you will hit a checkpoint. This is a boss battle!

Boss Battle
RockWind Wolf Ghost
--------------------
Level 40
Setup:Shu-SWM, Maru-MNK, Kluke-BLM, Jiro-WHM

This battle isn't too hard. Start by using shadowa and
shadowa sword until the monster splits in two. Use
the opposite element on each part. Grounda on the wind
wolf and winda on the Rock Wolf. Charge attack with maru.
A full charge attack can do 1000+ damage to each of them!
The battle will soon be over with this.

Continueing on you will come to a beach area. Roam
around this area to find chests and battle new creatures.
One of the chests contains a special item, the autographed
manuscript, so make sure that you search here throughly.
As you finally near one of the glass spires you get a c/s.
Guess who is back and guess what they brought!! Zola and
you now have control of a mechat you can fly around the
world!! Now is the time to do a quick fly over the world
and look for any treasure chests you might have missed
or any areas that you can now explore.

First head to Lal moutain camp and give the travelor there
the autographed manuscript you got from the chest to get
and "Eyepatch!" This is a plus SP item!!! Now skip down
to the Side Quest section and do all of them you want before
the final dungeon!!!!
========================================================

Finally time to head into the last dungeon and finish this
game! This dungeon is located right where Nene's fortress
was. Instead of floating in the air it is underground now.
Fly over to the top of the crater and it will show you that
you can land. Hit A to land and it will ask if you wish to
save your game. DO so, but I would recommend on a different
file. Then choose to enter the Deep Zone!

Mechat Mini-Game 3
-------------------

Another Shooter game. This one is easier that the Upper
Fortress one, so it shouldn't take much to get a perfect.
With the upgrades just keep a constant flow of bullets
going and lock on with your missiles to unleash some major
damage. This time you battle againast a Land Shark!!

The first part is easy. The Land Shark dropped these
floating mines that you need to shoot down. Only 2-3
come out at a time and they are very slow moving. You
just need to lock on the Land Shark with missiles and
take out mines when they appear with your guns.

The second part, while a little harder, is still easy.
The Land Shark shoots out groups of missiles now. You
need to take out the missiles right away if you are
going for this achievement. Again not too hard when he
is in front or back. Stick to the same strategy. Hit the
Land Shark with missiles and shoot down his missiles with
the machine guns. The only tricky part can be when he gets
on the side of you. He fires missiles at close range, so
you need to make sure you are following him closely and
that when he is on side of you, you are targeting close
to where the missiles launch from. FOllow this strategy
and you should get a perfect on this after a few tries.
Congratualtions on another achievement!!
----------------------------------------------------------

Cube World
-----------

Cube world is split up into different blocks that you
must visit in order to complete this dungeon. Just fly
up to the cubes and you will enter them.

Mecha Robo Cube
---------------

This is the first cube you should head too and also the
most helpful! Yasato and the other robots live on this
cube. Talk to every single robots because they will restore
HP and MP, as well as give you items. There are two black
barrier chests to get here. If you talk to five robots
down to the south the will give you clues about the side
quests below. You should already have done them all, but
if not there is a black portal to the left you can go in.
This portal will let you travel back in time to before the
planet was split!! In the center of the town there are also
shops for items, spells, and accessories so make sure you
check everything out. If you need to rest after any of the
other cubes now you know where to come!!

Primitive Cube
---------------

This is the second cube I came to. It is the green one
surrounded by blue sky and clouds. You should spot it
fairly easy. Head forward after you land for a c/s.

Boss Battle
------------
Mechosaurus
Jumbo Poo
-------------

Ok, Finally an answer to the question that everyone
wanted to know!!! Where do Poo's come from?? Well
when Jiro says, "This is not going to be good is it?"
and the T-rex is bent over, get ready to find out!!
The T-rex lets a big fart rip and next thing you
know a giant Poo Snake Appears!!! Damn. Two Flarus
swords will take the Poo down. Now concentrate flarus and
flarus sword on Mechosaurus. You can attack his eye
to do some extra damage to him and prevent his eye
laser attack. Keep hitting away this guy isn't that
tough.

After the battle search the area before you enter the
towb for a chest. I recommend fighting one butterfly
and using the Field Barrier for the rest if you are
going to examine things here. The butterflies keep
popping one after the other right under you and can
become very irritating otherwise. Now head inside.

The turtle enemies in here absorb all elements I
believe. I used waterus and flarus both on them
and they absorbed both so stick with physical
attacks. Take the first right you can and push
the button on the stand to move the platform to
connect a piece of walkway with a treasure chest.
Now don't go back over but continue up the path
to the north and hit another button. This will
shift the big pile of platforms to the left. Head
to the other side grab a chest and then come back
and cross all the platforms you moved. Get a chest
over on this walkway and hit the button at the end.
This will shift the platforms near the entrance to
the room allowing you to run back and grab the two
chests on the other side. One contains the "Ancient
Emblem-Moon!" Now head all the way back
to the upper right hand and press the button to make
the platforms move back to the exit of this room and
use the emblem on the door to leave the room.

Head up the hall and enter the door to the left, the
right one you need another emblem for. In this room
grab the chest on the left and follow the room around
to grab another chest at the other side. Now enter the
door next to this chest. Cross the small hall and enter
the door on the opposite side. You are in a room with
very small walkways. Enter the door on your left for a
chest and come back into this room. Do not push the
button on the center platform yet, instead head straight
through the door to grab another chest. You will see
that you can continue through another door in this
room but wait. Go into the room with the platform and
hit the button. The whole room will rotate around. Take
the exit in front of you on your left to grab an item
from a chest then come back to this room. Now head out
the other door in here. In this room there is a chest
on the right to grab. You want to keep going straight
into the next room now, do NOT enter the left door yet.
Do NOT hit the button in this room yet either, we are
already lost enough as it is!! J/k, it is confusing but
bear with it almost there.

Head straight from the room with the rotating platform
to grab a chest and then head back and hit the button
here. Don't worry just grab the chests from the left
and right room and come back to press the button again.
Head out the South door now because we are going to go
in that left I told you not to take before, which is
on your right now, still with me???

This is another puzzle room. If you label the switches
from South to North going 1 2 3 4(Or closest to furthest)
these are how you should hit them. 2, 1, 3, 1, and 4. It
is fairly simple when you hit a switch it shows you the
way. Head to the end and grab the two chest while down
there. Now to the east there is a chest guarded by a
robot. Grab the chest to get the Sun Emblem. Now head in
the warp device nearby. Back in this room across from
the oblivion door head up to your right and through the
door. Right across the hall from you should be at the Sun
door. Unlock it and go through.

Head through the two other doors in this room for chests,
then come back and rotate the room. Head through the north
door. Fight the ghosts here and grab the chest. Continue
through the door here to enter a puzzle room again...
Head left through the door into a rotating room. Hit the
button and go in the only room for a chest. Now go hit
the button again. If you head through the north door here
you get another Wind type bracelot. If you exit the door
in this room it doesn't lead anywhere yet so head back to
the puzzle room. First grab the chest on the left if you
didn't already, go to the right and press the button. Go
down the center platform and hit another button and grab
the chest. Now follow the new pathway to two more chests
(One carries the Ancient Emblem-Void for Oblivion Door!!)
to grab, a switch to hit, and a telepoter.Do NOT take the
teleporter yet, instead head around to the room you got
the bracelot from to get 2 more chests. Head back and take
the elevator. Head throught the door, but be ready for
a Boss Battle!!!

Boss Battle
Hot Hot Hydra
--------------

Level 50
Setup:same

Just hit this guy with waterus and waterus sword to inflict
some nice damage. It's heads will start dieing one by one.
He has an attack that can instantly kill one member, but
nothing we haven't dealt with before. The battle ends
extremely quick with waterus doing 1800 damage to each
head!!

WATCH OUT FOR FIRE BALLS HERE!!They do hurt. Take the
transporter up.

2nd Floor
---------

In this area you can go either all the way left or right
first to come to one of two encounters. I headed to the
left(Or East) first for this walkthrough. As you head
to the left you will see a small room to grab two chests
from then continue through the door at the end of the
hall for a battle!!

Boss Battle
Scowling Dynamo
----------------

Level 50
Setup:Same

Again neither of these two are extremely tough. Hit this
guy with waterus and waterus sword. Do NOT use flarus as
it will heal him. He has some decent attacks, but nothing
that Zephra can't heal up every round.

After you kill him hit the switch in the back of this room.
A message will say "Part of the ancient device unlocked!"
Now head out and to the other end to fight another boss
and do the same exact thing.

Boss battle
Spike-Arm Sentry
-----------------

Level 50
Setup:Same

Follow the exact same instructions as you did for the boss
above. They are almost identical in stategy.

Hit the switch in this room and head into the main hall
again. Through the center door you head for yet another
boss battle. Watch out for the fire balls.

Boss battle
Pyro Dragon
------------
Level 50

This guy has a lot of HP, but is still nothing you shouldn't
be able to handle. Hit him with waterus some more. Have Jiro
use Zephra everyround. Maru and Zola can hit away. He has a
few damaging attack, but if you could handle Stonesaurus Fire
breath than you can defenetly handle this guys!


After you beat this guy head outthe north door into a room
with a warp device. Now is the time to leave and do what you
need to do before we continue.

Head out the west door to another puzzle room. Do not hit
the first switch on the left, but continue and hit the
second one first, then go back and hit the first. Cross
over the center path now. Grab the chest from here. Set
the platforms back after and leave the room.

Head over to the east room now and kill all the enemies
in the area. Grab the chest before you hit any switches.
Then go and hit the 1st switch(the only one you can right
now.) Then go hit the 2nd switch, and then the first again.
Cross over and grab the chest for "Nene's Necklace!" Now
go hit the switches to reverse the platforms to the door
on the other side of the room connects to the platform
the treasure chest is at over there. Leave the room.

Back at the warp device take the northern door now.
Head to both the left and right sides to get the
chests you set the platforms up for. After you are
done collecting these chests head through the center
door to another big puzzle room.

Your first priority in this room is to clear out all
the enemies you can reach at this point and get the
one chest you can reach now in the upper left area.
Now this area get a little tough to explain, I am
going to try to lay it out for you.

Hit the switch closest to your right first. The follow
the path the platforms just made out to the distant
right side switch and hit it. Then hit the bottom
right corner switch. Now head all the way down to the
left passing the entrance to the room and hit the
farther switch on the left you can reach right now.
Go through the door this makes a path to. After you
enter you will hit another Boss Battle!

Boss battle
Mechatoclysm
------------

Level 50
Setup:Same

This giant head attacks you. Unlike the robots before
this guy will absorb water based attacks, so stick
with flarus. The head is kinda crazy and spooky, but
nothing we can't take care of. His attacks hit most
targets and do decent damage but zephra can handle
damage control. He won't last very long.

Head through the door after the battle and hit the
Northern most switch here and then the second one
you can reach too. This will make the platforms
connect directly to the door you just came out.
You need to head back through the bottom left
door, the same one you entered befor and come out
the door to right after you fought the boss. You
can now hit the other switch now! After hit the
top most switch in this little area again to make
a path out. Now go back pass the entrance to the room
and head down to the doors on the right side. You
should have a path made leading to the farther right
hand door, go through it. be ready for another Battle!

Boss Battle
Sneezing Cyclops
-----------------
Level 50
Setup:Same

This guy is the exact same as the other crazy looking head.
He is opposite element though. Even though he is blue,
make sure you use waterus against him. Same strategy as
last time and we won't last too long.

Head out the other door in this room. Hit the switch in this
area and and head back around through the doors to the main
room. Now go to the door you first enter the puzzle room
from. Again the switch nearest to your right you need to hit.
Then hit the switch in the lower right hand corner again.
After this a path should open to a switch in the very back
right hand corner. Hit this switch and continue down the
long path of platforms into the room in the back center!

There is a teleporting device in this room you need to take,
but be ready for a tough boss battle! In the room you teleport
to head south and enter a room where the final showdown
with Szabo will begin and you are about to begin the final
showdown of the entire game!!!

Boss Battle
Ultimate Szabo
---------------

Level 51
Setup:Same

This is going to be a lengthy battle. Szabo has a long of
HP. Keep hitting him with flarus and flarus sword for
major damage. His attack can hit everyone and they do some
heavy damage. Keep your WHM healing every round. Use marumaro
and Zola to keep regular attacks up. If your corpeal attacks
become available make sure you use them. Everytime a character
attack you should be pushing at least a 1000+ damage. If this
is the case than Szabo has no chance of winning. Just keep
the onslaught up and this will be over before you know it.
The only move you should really watch out for is Double Special
Shot which does 200-300 damage to all characters.

After the battle follow Szabo around and open the four chests
on the way. Activate the last warp device here and warp out
to rest and to save! If you activated all other warp devices
you should not get another achievement for using this one!
When ready head into the transporter for the real FINAL BATTLE!


Cauldron Chamber
--------------

Boss Battle
Nene
------------

Level 52

This is more of a waiting battle than a damaging one.
Your most powerful attacks will only do 50-100 damage
including flarus sword. Kluke might get flarus itself
off for 400 damage. Keep fighting and this part of the
battle will end and a c/s will play.

Boss Battle
Nene 2
-------------
Level 52

Thank god for Szabo!! Now time to hammer away with flarus
and flarus sword. Nene can you hit for some major damage
here, so keep healed up. He will fall quickly in this
battle again.

Boss Batttle
Ultimate Nene
--------------
Level 52
Setup:Same

You start out this battle by being healed! :) He attached
himself to an eternal engine! Just focus on Ultimate Nene
at first hitting away with flarus and flarus sword. He will
take some high damage from this. Shadowus has no effect on him.
After Nene takes so much damage he uses "Eternal engine" which
fully heals him! Well now we have to take out the engines and
then kill him. The engines fall after 1-2 hits. You can use a
wide area spell to take them all out, or physically assault
them, it's up to you. Windus and Waterus work well for taking
the engines down. Nene has an attack called Shadow Bind that
removes one of your characters shadows, making them significantly
weaker. He also has wide area spells that can do some decent
damage. Just keep at it and when the pumps are gone start
hitting Nene with Flarus to take him down! He also has another
wide range attack that kills your MP instead of HP! Be careful
he can get tricky near the end.

Get ready for the shock of your life!!!I don't want to ruin
it, but after the c/s you are asked to save your game. If
you do so, do it on another new file. Also, I think the
game developerss that is would be funny to keep us in
suspense because when you choose to save your game they
give you 5 minutes of load time looking at Blue Dragon
character pics!!!!!Haha, very funny. Save and continue for
your last fight!

Mystery
-------

You can attack or defend. Just wait till this battle ends.

Time for the very very last last battle!!

Mystery
-------

I don't want to ruin this for you, so come up with your
own strategy. This boss has heavy hitting attacks, and
I think we if tthe toughest boss in the game including
the side quests ones. One word of advice is if he uses
the Mist attack use wind magic against it. This is the only
way to get rid of it. Good Luck!!

Few more things to wrap up....Warp using the transporter
annd check around the area for some c/s. As Shu go look
for a white Flower. As marumaro after, talk to Zola.
Then as Shu again talk to Jiro who is in the house and
lastly talk to Kluke.

CONGRATULATIONS ON BEATING THE GAME!!

Side Quests!!!
===============

This side quest is available after taking down the flying
fortress at the beginning of disc two.

Exile Forest
-------------

Exile forest is just a short path leading to Alumaru Village
which is the main goal. As soon as you enter the Exile
Forest to the southeast of Jibral you will get a c/s. You
can't enter the cave yet, so continue forward and you will
exit onto the world map. Continue forward until you reach
the village

Alumaru Village
---------------

Activate the warp device to the right of the entrance. Head
over the bridge to the left to get another scene. Check out
the shops here and buy whatever items you need. They have
a good selection of spells if you make it here early enough.
In the house next to the shop you can read about the history
of the Gorgo People so stop by. After you search all the houses
and are ready to continue head onto the center platform and
talk to Sura-Sura to ring the bring. Talk to her again afterwards.
There is a blue barrier chest behind Jeelala's house and a
green barrier chest over by the spell shop. Head over to the
right side of Jeelala's mansion and go behind it. You will get
another c/s here. Open the chest nearby for a Scarf and
head over to the gate. Choose to go inside the gate.

Treasure Warehouse
------------------

You need to follow the light from the ring. On your right
you can open a treasure chest. Then head forward, some penguin
random encounters will occur. They aren't too tough. Kill them
and keep following the light. At the first intersection take a
left to gather three chest. After the third one a tiger will appear
and if you run to the four one you will fall through a hole in
the ground first. Do this because below you can collect four more
chests, one with a valueable item. You will see a chest on a
platform that you can not reach yet. If you go up the staircase
you will reach 1B. Collect the chest and go through the door
back to the entrance. Now go back to the light from the ring
and go right this time following it. Fight the tiger on this
side. Grab the two chests on this path and go left at the next
intersection to grab that chest you missed earlier. Now go back
and follow the right path. Another intersection, do NOT go
right. You will fall through the floor and be ambushed by a
group of monsters. Follow the path to the left instead. Grab
the chest on the way and then head right at the next intersection
to grab the chest there. Do NOT go past the chest or you will
fall through the hole. Go back to the intersection and head
straight. Fight the penguin and grab the stomach-band
accessory. Now go left and grab the three chests on the way.
One has 30 metals! You will come to an area with a door and
the ring stops. Head left first to grab a chest and keep
going left. You will fall through the floor onto that platform,
where you can now get the "Mystery Part Un!" Go all the way
back to the door and hit a checkpoint. Time to enter, be ready
for a boss Battle.

Boss Battle
2 Gorgo first
2 Gorgo and Jeelala Second
--------------------------

The first battle is easy. Just use flara and flara sword
to inflict enough damage and they will go down fast. For
the second part of the battle do the same thing taking out
the 2 gorgo first. Then concentrate on Jeelala with the
same strategy.

After the battle make sure to grab all the treasure in this
room. There is quite a bit to gather. Exit the room from up
the staircase. Check the whole house for items and exit into
the city. You will get a c/s here. Time to go back to the
Exile Forest.

Exile Forest
-------------

Head into the cave here. Take a right at the first intersection
to get a chest. Go over to the left now. You will zone into a
room where you hit a checkpoint. Time for another boss battle!

Boss Battle
Poison Mistx4
GuruGuru
--------------

Another easy battle. Use wide area attacks like ground or
grounda to take out the poison mists first. GuruGuru is
poisoned right from the start of the battle. As soon as
the poison mists fall the battle will end so concentrate on
them.

Back in the town you get a c/s, congratulations you finished
your first side quests!
==============================================================

The following quests are available after obtaining the Mechat
to fly around in. While the Mecha base can be entered earlier,
you need to wait to reach the top until you have the blue,
white, and red devices. The black is good to have too if you
don't want to run through again to unlock the chests.

The first part of the quests require visiting different
islands. I recommend doing this first you will get extremely
helpful items. You will recieve a kelolon and a sun necklace
from two of the islands. Another Kelolon necklace can be
found in the Aurora Ruin side quest too. Yet another one
can be gained by finding a treasure chest right by where
you first got the mechat. Look for a chest near one of the
spires thats moving.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These are the stats for the Kelelon Necklace: Attack+30,
Defense+170, Agility+50!!, and HP+100. The bad part
is you start every battle as a kelolon, you can cure it
but you must waste a turn or an item. It is up to you.
Personally I equipped an extra accessory that prevent
status ailments and I never start out as a kelolon.
The accessory was
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This necklace is a MUST HAVE item. The sun necklace is
pretty nice too. The stats are:attack+30 and defense+180.
Make sure you come here first as it is a quick quest.
Well all but that damn tree!!!

Western Deserted Island
-----------------------

Down by the Undersea caves you went to earlier is a chain of
islands. If you fly overhead you will see two treasure
chests on one of the islands. Western Deserted Island should
appear on the screen. Make sure you land here. One of the
treasure chests contains "Mystery Part Trois."!! You now
have the last of the three piece to the engine. Congratualtions.

Southwestern Deserted Island
------------------------

From the western Island follow the chain of islands to run into
this one. You will meet some interesting Poo Snakes here.
There are actually many kinds, so keep fighting untill you
kill them all. I ran into Zebra, conquest, puneant, and dark
to name a few. Only one chest here so collect it and
move on.

Southern Deserted Island
------------------------

Are you starting to get the picture yet. Continue on the
chain of islands to find this one. Again another chest
to grab. Guess What you find here!!! The almight
Golden Poo Snake!!! If you want another achievement you
need to kill this guy. So what's the problem??? He flees
on you right at the beginning. I tried back attack, first
attack, regular attack, letting him hit me and nothing
worked. If anyone figures out how to beat him please let
me know. This guy is worth another achievement.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
UPDATE:!!! I found out how to kill this guy!!! You need
to collect the Kelolon Necklaces. There are a few listed
in this side quest sections alone. I equipped the necklace
along with any other agility boosting items I had. I
used a Stun Bomb from the field to paralyze it, followed
by a back attack to engage it, then I has Shu attack as
a Kelolon(yes he got first attack!) and I happened to do
a critical hit for 1600 HP! He died end of story another
accomplishment! I don't know the Golden Poo Snake HP,
but at this time I had three of the necklaces in my inventory,
so just equip them on a few characters and enter the battle
the same way. Bamm, easy victory! Congratulations!
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Eastern Deserted Island
------------------------

Head over near Almaru Village and fly around the chain
of islands there to find this Island. You fight some
interested ghost mobs here. Make sure you kill one of
each type for your dictionary. Grab the treasure on the
southern part of the island and head to the northern
part of the same island for a boss battle!!SAVE YOUR
GAME FIRST!!

Boss Battle
Ghost Yeet
------------

Level 44
Setup: same as Stonesaurus

This guy is another pain in the @$ battle. At the beginning
he kept using fire elemental up, so I used watera to bring
his elemental back down. It did do this, but also did very
little damage. Then I figured it out he is weak versus fire,
but uses fire elemental up to reduce the damage. The way to
get around this is after he uses Fire UP hit him with watera
twice. His elemental weakness will go way down. Then he will
try to super boost his fire elemental 2-3 times and burn himself
out, this means his weakness to fire can be used now. Hit him
with flarus and flarus sword for major damage, 1000+. He will
use Death Blossom around this time which will automatically kill
one of your characters. He can petrify you as well, so cure
when this happens. His roots attack can cause up to 700
damage to some character and hits all at the same time.
Shu luckily only took about 300. Revive if this happens ASAP
and good luck. You just have to outlast him. The Corpeal
attack may be the only thing that gets you to scrape through
this tough battle!

You gain the "Heatsink Part" as your rewards! Congratulations!
===============================================================


Kelaso Village
--------------

This village is located near the snow covered area to the north
center of the map. The large inland sea is near the village
at the highest most northern point it goes into. You will
see the yellow stars in the area that are ??? and you should
visit. You should be able to find the location that way.

As you approach the cottage you get a c/s. Check the surrounding
are in order to find a chest and gather some items. Now to find
a way in. This took a little investigation to find the entrance
into. You need to walk back down the steps that lead to the
cottage. When you reach the bottom stay close to the cliff the
cottage is on and follow it around back to see an entrance into.
Talk to the people in this room and one will give you the fireplace
key. Walk over to the fireplace and continue downstairs.

This town is a little odd. It seems everyone wants to marry
Marumaro!! Walk around chatting with everyone to get some
scenes. Open the treasure chests here. One contains the
ghost buster bracelot. You should buy the new spells and
accessories in this town, they are very helpful. Don't
forget to activate the wapr device!


So after enough marriage proposals Marumaro will run off.
Keep chasing him around the circle here until he heads
into a house. Go into the house and talk to the elderly
woman that will talk about their headgear. You have to
keep chasing her from the sofa downstairs to the one
upstairs over and over again to finally get the whole
story. Afterwards you get a scene and Marumaro will
join you again. Exit the house and go up the stairs
that lead to the ladder going up and talk to the elder
first. He mentions something about a dragon to the
west of here. To the west is where you find the
Aurora Ruins. Head up the ladder and exit this town.
=========================================================

Aurora Ruins
------------

The ruins are located right to the west of Kelaso
Village. You will see the blinking star shape for it
on the world map. Enter the ruin and get the chest near
you which contains Kelolon Necklace. Now go through the
door on the left and at the end of that hall you will
hit a checkpoint. Make sure you are ready before you
enter this door!!! There is an extrememly tough battle
ahead.

Boss Battle
Stone-Saurus
-------------

I was Level 42.
Setup: Shu-SWM, Kluke-BLM, Jiro-WHM, Maru-MNK, Zola-ASN

This battle is very tough. Right from the start keep
nailing the stonesaurus head. Make sure you are targeting
the head to attack. Keep pounding away at the head with
Windus and Windus sword. I had Shu hitting for 1900 damage
with windus sword and Kluke hitting for 1200 damage with
windus not charged. If someone in your party gets petrified
use Marumaro or Jiro to heal them. Otherwise Jiro should
be using zephra at ALL times. Even if you have full health
this guy can kill you. He often attacks twice in a row.
His fire breath attack hitting 2-3 characters for 400
damage each. You can lauch this twice in a row for more
than 800 damage to each character total. So pray that this
does not happen. If he keeps petrifying a party member than
you are very lucky! He also has thunder breath and Mow Down
attack which also cause major damage. Follow the strategy
above and hopefully this guy falls very quickly. Good Luck!

You get A "Lock On:Upgrade Part A" for winning this battle!
===========================================================

Mecha Base
----------

This is the moving Mecha Base we ran into earlier in the
walkthrough that I said to hold off on. If you don't know
where it is, you run into it on the way from Pachless Village
to Nene's fortress. It is a giant blue machine up in the
snowy area that is circling on a track with robots appearing
on it's path. Just wait on the path and when it nears you,
you will automatically enter it.

1st Floor
----------

This place can be kind of confusing. When you reach the first
intersection grab the chest on your side and run right to
grab another chest. Then head down the center path and into
a room to grab another chest. While this area splits into three
paths they are all connected. So just run down each hall and
in each room looking for chests and killing mobs. When I
killed the three in the center room it said the security lock
was released. So continue on when you are ready. In the last
room in the center path there is an elevator. First grab the
chest on your lower right to get level 6 magic attack up!!
Then hop in the elevator and go to the second floor.

2nd Floor
----------

This floor is full of lazers that you must make your way
around. From where you start exit the elevator room. In
the next room there are lazers every where. You do NOT
want to go through the lazers, but you do need to fight
all the robots on this floor. To do this get close to the
lazers and wait for the robots in them to come to you.
Kill the robots and continue following the path where
there are no lazers. This is easy, first go right to
the end, then move forward in this hall, then head all
the way left, and so on. Remember to fight all of the
robots. In the last hall there is a blue barrier blocking
the way. Head down to the end of this hall where a single
laser is in the way. Go through it and enter the door
to fight four more robots and get a chest. After you kill
these robots you should get the message that the security
lock has been released. You need to head back to where you
first entered this room. Instead of heading right first
go all the way to the left in order to get the level 6
spell previve. This is a must have spell. Go back to the
blue barrier and get rid of all three barriers blocking
the way. (Blue,red, and white.) Head into the elevator
room and grab the two chests in here. Take the elevator
up to the 3rd floor.

3rd Floor
---------

Check the elevator room here for another chest. There are
two exits to this room. Take the left door first. (The other
has lasers in the way.) Fight the Double Axe monster here
and grab the chest. Head out the other hall and continue to
the middle room. You fight an egg type monster here. It is
not really a boss just hit it with flarus and flarus sword
and it will fall fast. The only move a saw was gravity press.
Afterwards head down the southeastern door. (The one that
leads to the other side of the entrance. There are 3 lasers
here, but if you time it right you can fit right under them.
Back in that room grab the chest and head back to the
center room avoiding the lasers again. Head out the right
top door here and down the hall. Fight the four robot
crabs and grab the chest. Continue out the other door and
to the elevator room. Search the area for items then head
out the left door and down the hall. In this room fight
four robots and the security lock will release. Another
chest with a black barrier we can't get for now...Head
back to the elevator and up to the 4th floor.

4th Floor
---------

Check the elevator room for another chest. Head out the
door and down the hall into another door. grab the two
chests in this room and fight the Black Double Axe. Go
through the door and down the hall again through another
door. Grab the chest for yet more medals, and fight the
four robots. The security lock will release afterwards.
Then keep moving forwards, almost there! Check this
elevator room for some new GREAT items! One of them is
Missile upgrade part A! Make sure to search the blue
circles too, they have some good stat boosts too. Take
the elevator up!

5th Floor
----------

Examine the blue circles for more nothings. Head out the
only door and through the next door too.BE READY for a
Boss battle in this room!

Boss Battle
Gold scything skull spider
---------------------------

Level 45
Setup:Same

This guy is easy compared to the StoneSaurus and Ghost
Yeet we have already faced. His area attack only hit
everyone for 100-200 points of damage and he isn't
that fast. Flarus, Windus, and waterus all seem
to do the same amount of damage so just keep hitting
away and he will fall before long. He has one attack
that can instantly KO a character but it is not much
of a problem.

You get a "Renew Ring" for this quest!

After all this questing make sure you rest up at an
inn and restock your items. I know I was running low
on Phoenix Talons and MP restoratives by now. Warp to
a city and make sure you are prepared for the rest of
the side questing.
===========================================================

Ancient Ruins-Forest
--------------------

As you enter grab the chests you notice a mushroom on
your right. If you touch it, it will heal you. Grab the
two nearby chests. Straight ahead there is a machine sticking
out of the ground press the button on it. There is a path
left and right here. Take the right path first. You can get
the shawow step shoes here. Now go back and to the left. Shorty after
entering the path you see another machine, press the button.
Continue down the path to an open area. Follow the path
that is straight ahead into an area with a few tigers, three
chests, and another machine you should press the button on.
You can open two of the chests here, one has 10,000 gold!
One of the chests is locked though, remember it's location.
After you do all this head back to the open area and take
the other path. There is a chest near the entrance to this
one. A little ways after hit the button on another machine.
Continue following the path. You come to another wide open
area with a huge hydra to the left. Ignore it for now and
head straight to activate another machine. Grab the chest
at the end and now go back for a battle with the gorgon
hydrataller. This guy is a regular enemy. Hit him with
flarus and he will fall fast. You get a Black belt from
the chest right behind him. Follow the path to an open
area where you can grab a chest. If you continue down the
path you will run into another Boss battle!

Boss Battle
Land Shark C
-------------

Keep hitting him with waterus and waterus sword. Like the
other land shark battles this keeps him from using Heat
Laser. If you keep up this strategy he will fall soon.
This boss is not tough at all and shouldn't be a problem.

A chest will appear afterwards, open it to get "Weapons
Parts."

There is another machine in this are you should hit the
button on and continue onto the next screen. This is the
area with the chests you could not access earlier. Grab
all the items here, you will get the magic user crusher
bracelot here and 50 medals! Do NOT jump off the cliff
here but follow it down to another machine you can hit
the button on and two more chests. Now junp off either
cliff and head back to that locked chests to grab the
last item,gravitic necklase and leave.
===========================================================

Sea Cube
--------

Level 1
--------

Activate the warp device. Go straight until a room where
you can head straight, left, or right. Head straight first
becauase the left and right doors are locked. You come to a
room with a chest to open. Head down the other corridor from
here. Enter a room and fight the kelolon protector. A chest
will appear, open it to key the layer one key. Head back to
the are with the locked doors to the left and right. Take
your right to head down a hall with a chest and go in the
door at the end. Both sides have warp devices and they both
lead to the same area. The only difference is this side has
a chest in the hall and in the room you teleport to and the
other does not.

Level 2
-------

Collect the chest in the transport room and head to the
center. Kill the enemies here and open the chest. Continue
down the middle corridor into the next room. If you use
your barrier to kill the armored fish you get +4 SP!!
Continue down the hall after. At the end you can take
a left or right again. Take your left first and kill the
Kelolon Defenders to have another chest appear with layer
2 key! Head north into the transporter room to grab the
"Tech-crusher Bracelot!" Do not use the teleporter instead
head back into the center room go down down the right hall
now to grab a chest in the next room and fight a large
golem creature. Kill him with fire magic and go through the
door and use the transporter.

Level 3
--------

Grab the chest in this room and head out the right door,
down the hall and ito another room to kill Kelolons and
get a chest. You will get the layer 3 key here. Head back
to the center room and continue north. (The left door
hallway is blocked by a black barrier which we will soon
be able to remove.) Open the chest in this hallway.
Fight another crystal giant down here. Open the door to
the transporter and use it. (Don't worry about the other
transporter on level 2 thinking that is will take you
to the blocked off area up here, because it doesn't. If
you use it, it brings you back to the beginning of the
2nd level and is a pain to figure out. Just take this
transporter and move forward.)

Level 4
--------

Open the chest by the transporter. Again the hall on the
left is blocked by a black wall. Head north down the corridor
to the next room. Head down the hall to the right here.
All the way down the long corridor here you reach another
chest in a room. Open it and head out the north corridor
to another room. Kill the Kelolon defenders here and
open the chest that appears for level 6 wallus!! Now head
all the way back to the center room and continue north
this time. New clam enemies are here, so kill them.
Next head out the right door and keep following the
corridors all the way to the end to kill some kelolon
defenders and get the Deep Sea Key. Head all the way
back to the room you could take a left or right in.
Continue west out the other door now. In the next room
open the chest and head out the south door. Follow this path
to come to a room with more kelolon defenders to kill.
You get the Infinity Ring now! Head back north and fight
the giant. Head through the door and be ready for a Boss
Battle!!

Boss Battle
Azure Abyssal Dragon
-------------------------

The only thing you can attack at first is the head.
So hammer away at it with flarus and flarus sword
for major damage. His attack didn't do too much damage
to me. Water laser hits for about 50-100 damage on a
single character. Next you move on to the dragons
chest. Do not change tactics keep hitting with flarus
for 1500+ damage! Next comes the Belly to attack.
His regular hits now cause about 300-400 damage to a
single target. Again nothing to worry about just keep
the healing up.

After the battle two chests appear. One has the black
Device!! The other has a laser upgrade!! Now continue
through the north door. Three more chests. One contains
"Mystery Part Deux"!! The other has and Infinity Ring
and the other carries level 6 Groundus!! Congratulations
on gaining some nice items.

Now before you leave head back out and all the way south
down the hallway. Take a left at the very end and get rid
of the black wall in the way. Take the transporter back
down to the third floor. Here go back to the black wall to
the left of the first transporter and get rid of it. Through
here is another chest containing a "Renew Ring"!! Now warp
out of here.
============================================================

Mechat Dock
-----------

Now before we do the next side quest we are going to
stop here. You may have noticed this dock earlier. It is
up by the lal Mountains sheep tribe village. Search the
area and go directly above it and land. At the mechat dock
you can upgrade your mechat with all the parts we have
aquired. The list below is what I have so far. After I
finish the walkthrough I will list locations in one
section, but if you followed the walkthrough to this
point you should have them all. (I am sure there are other
upgrades, but at this point I don't have all barrier
locations, so I will wait till I do to update this area.)

Parts:
Heatsink- prevents the machine gun from overheating
Weapon Parts-weapon attack strength up
Laser barrier Parts- protect against 5 ring laser attack
Missile upgrade part B-carry more missiles
Missile Upgrade Part A-Carry even more missiles
Lock-On Upgrade Part A-increase lock-on number


Now we have a mechat not to be reckoned with!
==============================================================

Upper Mechat Base
-----------------

This base is eay to find. It is the bright yellow star on
the world map in the middle of the water towards the south-
center of the map. Upon entering you get into another mechat
shooter game. Happy you made them upgrades!! This is another
achievement, you need to get a perfect by not taking any
damage. You also need to do it on normal mode. Good Luck!

Mechat mini-Game
----------------

This one is a LOT tougher than your first mechat shooter
game. Well it isn't too tough if you are just trying to
beat it, but trying to get a perfect for an achievement,
this one is definetly not a given by any means. Even with
all your upgrades you are in for a hell of a battle. Let
me give you a little insight into what we are getting into.

Your first job is to take out the red circle things on the
base. Make sure you read the tutorial because it will show
you want I am talking about. You need to take out the
ones on the right side of the machine first, as soon as
the last one on the right side is destroyed you need to
immediatly switch to shooting down the red circles on the
left side. Do NOT let them catch you by surprize with a
load of missles. In the meantime you also need to shoot
down the machine guys inbetween killing red circles and
shooting down wayward missiles!! Use your missiles!!!
With my upgrades I could carry 16 on hand and lock on with
a bunch of them at once. When you finish this we move onto
the next stage.

(There is an easy way to beat the next part. If you
are trying for an achievement it will NOT work.
TO take the cheap way out, after you do the first part
and the mini c/s plays instantly target the white
light pole on the top center of the base. 2-3 lock
on's with a group of missiles will finish this battle
without fighting all the things listed below!)

You get a quick c/s, then time to continue taking this
thing down. You need to target the circle orbs with
the white lights here. Your other target is the white
light in the center on top of the base. Save this
target for last. As soon as you take down the circle
orbs a red light appears in the area underneath. These
fire three missiles at once. By the white light in the
center are another pair of machine guns on each side
firing at you. If that wasn't enough you also have
the big high calibur machine guns on the four corners
near you firing. Target the red light first while
firing missiles at it try to target the two machine
guns on top as well. As soon as the red light is
destroyed concentrate on the machines gun closest to
you. After a few tries you will see what I am talking
about. Congratulations on another achievement if you
make it!!

Back to Upper Mecha Base
-------------------------

You will recognize this area right away. Seems the
same architect that build the Mecha Base made the
upper Mecha base.

1st Floor
---------

Same layout as first floor of Mecha Base. There are
no treasure chests on this floor. You just need to
run down every hall and enter every room to kill
every monster. When this is done you will get the
message security door released. Now head to the
elevator room and open your first chest containing
"Mystery Part Gamma!" The final piece!! Take the
elevator up to the second floor.

2nd Floor
---------

The second floor is the same as the second one on
Mecha Base, but it is HARDER!! If you hit the
lasers a few times you will be sent all the way
back to the 1st floor elevator. Now there is also
another rule, You can pass under four Lasers, but
if you try to pass under a 5th laser you are sent
back to the first floor elevator as well. I am not
talking about tripping them I am talking about
passing them!! Ok, with that said this is going to
take a few trips being sent back. Head left at the
first intersection and into the room to kill the
robots. Now trip some wires to get sent back. Now
at the entrance to the room again, take a right
at the first intersection passing under one laser.
Up the end continue again the right way. When
you have to take a left do so, but take your first
right. Down this hall and take a right and into
the room to get a Life-crusher Bracelot!! Now
leave the room and when you try to get through the
laser to the elevator area you will be sent back to
the first floor! Now to get to the barriers blocking
the elevator. Take a left at the first intersection.
Do NOT go in the room but follow the left wall up.
Pass through the areas with one laser but stick to
the left wall. It will take you up top with only
one more laser to cross, leaving you with only
crossing four lasers and being at the entrance to
the elevator room. In the elevator room open the
two chests for an Eternity Ring and Earring! Ride
the elevator up to the 3rd floor.

3rd Floor
---------

Take either the left or right exit either one does
not matter. You have to explore both halls and kill
all enemies within the rooms. Now back up at the
center room there are a LOT of Double Axes to kill.
You have to defeat them all so get to work. Hit them
with Flarus or Flarus sword and they will fall quickly.
There are also some big robots hit them with
watera. Head out the northwest or northeast doors,
again it doesn't matter you need to take both paths
to kill all the enemies and move on. In the northeast
room there is a chest containing Infinity something.
Now head to the elevator room to grab chests containing
Shield Badge and Eil. Take the elevator up again.

4th Floor
---------

Head right down the center in this floor. Kill the
robots on the way. If you keep heading straight
you run into another globe/egg thing. Keep using
flarus to kill it. Continue straight some more.
In the elevator you get coating part A and the
Infinity necklase. Take the elevator up.

5th Floor
---------

Head forward and be ready for a Boss battle!

Boss Battle
Steel Giant
------------

Level 47
Setup: Same

The guy is pretty easy. He has reflect on him so
do NOT use magic attacks on him or you will be your
own worst enemy. You can still use Magic Sword on
him to cause some major damage. I used watera sword.
Keep hitting him with regular attack along with this.
Have your white mage heal every round. Compared to
other bosses we fought up till now this guy hits
worth ****.
Grab the Renew Ring Behind the boss after as your
prize and get out of here.
===================================================

Ancient Ruins Caverns
=====================

If you hope to win this battle, at this lowest
you should be level 65+ with your job rank
maxed out. This is the TOUGHEST boss to beat!!!!
BE PREPARED!!!

These are the ruin right by Talta Village. Make sure
you visit them. You need to anyways in order to
complete the barrier achievement. When you enter you
will get a c/s. Gte rid of the blue barrier and
continue forward. You will get another seen and see
a Jumbo Poo. Now go fight that Jumbo Poo. grab the
chest afterwards and run over to the chest protected
by the blue barrier and get that. After you defeated
the Jumbo Poo, a huge nother type of Poo appears. I
forget the name but defeat it. These two aren't
that hard. Now head over towards the white barrier
blocking the path further in. On the way another
green Poo will apear. This is the KING POO!!!

Boss battle
King Poo
------------

(Hints:How to engage. You should start this battle
with stunning and attack from behind or link a
group of poos with King Poo. This stategy came
from a forum board. This gives you time to get
your support magic up to lessen the damage. I know
support has not taken a major role for battle yet,
but 33% down on this guys attack will mean the
difference between life and death!)

Are you ready for the toughest battle in the game??
Because you got it!! I have 200+ agility on 3 of my
character with the best equipment in the game on.
The King Poo will still demolish you on speed even
with this. If he physically attacks, he can hit 2-3
targets in one turn for 1200+ damage each!! So they
are already dead. If this isn't enough he has an
all attack move that hits every character from
between 500-1200 damage depending on their jobs.
He can also launch this move twice in a row if
your agility is not extremely high!! Your best
bet is to wait until level 99 before attempting
this, but you could always try it for fun. Good
Luck!!

After the battle go through the white barrier.
Not sure whats there yet, so let me know!
=================================================

Ancient Factory
----------------

We are going to take a trip back here now in order
to fight the Gold Mecha Robot. Now to find him. Use
the warp device you have in the factory to get there
faster.

As soon as you teleport and walk forward you will
get a c/s talking about the robot. Head in and
ride the conveyor belt. Watch out the Gold Mecha
robot is right here!!!

Boss Battle
Gold Mecha Robot
----------------
Level 55
Setup:Same as stonesaurus








Congratulations on
finishing your last side quest! Well almost,
we still need to find all the barrier chest
locations
============================================================

Mystery Parts
--------------

You should have the following mystery Parts from following
the walkthrough too.

Mystery Part Alpha-Mural Town
Mystery Part Beta-Ancient Factory (Defeat all the stone enemies.)
Mystery Part Un
Mystery Part Deux-Mecha Base
Mystery Part Trois
Mystery Part Gamma-Upper Mecha Base

Again I will list locations for these in this section at a
later time. When you have all six parts return to the Jibral
labratory in order to recieve the "Final War Necklace" and
the "Ultimate Weapon Bracelot!" Congratulations on two more
achievements!!
=============================================================

The Dragon Bracleot
-------------------

At first I didn't know what to make of this quest. Rumors
of 5 dragons, wondering if Stonsaurus and Azure abyssal
Dragon are part of them?? Then I finally get some solid
evidence they do exist, and you do get the dragon bracelot
from them!!

After you talk to Elder Baun in Kelaso Village so back and
talk to the old lady that kept switching couches again.
Well this is the best info you are going to get from the
game. Now below I will list where to find the dragons.
These guys are no joke, they are very tough, hopefully
not as tough as Gold Mecha Robot and King Poo but we are
going to find out!!!

The clues the lady gives you are South of Glass, West of
living Murals, East of the Auroras, Next to the water
flowing underground, and amoung the plentiful crystals
in a cave. You should know what all of this means, but if
not follow the instructions below! Bring a lot of Phoenix
Talons!

I did it!!! I found out how I could beat all 5 dragons with
my characterS level around 50 and it works!!! First make
sure you have field barrier 2 or 3, hopefully 3, but I did it
with 2. Now what you want to do in change everyones job to
white mage. If you take WHM to level 12 you get both double
item and enhanced item effect. Now any character can act as
a super healer. Next I kept my BLM as WHM for now and brought
her to level 25 where I can increase my White magic level. Now
take all your jobs and level Barrier Magic to level 12. You
will get the support ability that makes your magic defense
the same as your Barrier job. Are you getting the picture
yet. Now everytime you hit level 12 with a job switch to
another job. You want to level every single job to level
12. With this done you will have some of the most useful
abilities that they can attribute. If you already took your
Generalist to at least level 22-25 you should be set. If
not level your generalist to get skill+6,etc. Now here is
what we want to do.

(Hint:How to level Rank: Equip the magic barrier like stated
above and any accessory that give double SP. One is the
eyepatch which you get from finding the autograpphed
manuscript near the glass spires and giving it to the
traveler in Lal mountains. Now go to the Mecha base world
map area. The robots here only give +1 SP but with the
accessory it goes to +2. We only need every job to level 12
and another whm job to level 25. This will only take about
an hour. You are ready to go!)

Give every character the best abilities for the battles.
Switch everyone back to there usual job. Mine was Shu as
Swordmaster, Jiro as White mage, Kluke as Black Mage, and
Zola as Assassin, and Maru as monk. Equip almost every
of the following skills on everyone. The skill that makes
all magic defense equal to your barrier magic class, this
should raise it like 100+ points even at level 12!! Now
on your physical attackers equip charge attack, critical
up, and the defense boost from guardian. Equip the assassin
speed ability on everyone. Your black mage should equip
white magic level 5 and if anyone else can spare a slot
they should have white magic level 3. Equip double item
and enchance item effect on everyone.

Now I was getting completely decimated by the dragons at
level 50. I followed the above tips. It took me about
an hour to get everyone to get there job to hit level
12-15. This is very simple, fast, and effective. After
I did this simple procedure I was owning the dragons
like they were POO SNAKES!!! (Not King Poo....) The
lightning breath attack went from doing 500-600 damage
to a character down to about 200 to every character.
Between accessory equips and the assassins speed boost
I always had 1-2 healers ready after everytime the
dragon attacked. This left me with three physical
attacked that could each super charge their attack
from the monk ability, counter every physical attack,
and unleash hell on the dragon. Before I would not
have dream about charge attacking for fear of being
dead before that time came, but this does work. I
have all 5 characters charging spells, attacks, and
everything else at the same time without fear of
dieing. Please take the time to follow this strategy.
I will get more in depth at a later time, but this
WILL work!! If your white mage and black mage can't
get to heal in time you always have every character
that can use two items and enhance their effect!!

South of Glass
--------------

This obviously means the glass spires. Warp to lal mountain
village. The glass spire area is the great desert. If you
land and walk along the coast on the sothern edge you will
finding it flying around. It is not hard to spot!

Boss battle
Phantom Dragon
--------------
Level 55
Setup:Default Jobs

This guy will absorb your physical attacks. So do not
hit him with a regular attack from anyone! Use groundus
against him for the most effective damage. He hits for
a lot of damage, but you should be able to keep up with
healing if you are around my level and have agility adding
gear equipped. It's fearsome Tornado attack can hit for
400+ damage to every character. While you want to use
groundus sword to hit him for good damage, have your BLM
use Flarus because groundus will not hit a flying enemy.
Before the middle of the fight I recommend using Quicka
because it seems like he gets much faster and attacks
much harder. He also can completely deplete your MP!
DO NOT USE CORPEAL ATTACKS YOU WILL HEAL HIM!!!!! The
end of this battle turns into more of a stalmate. You
will be able to stay healed and alive, but damage to
this boss will come very VERY slow with you reviving
and healing every round.

You get the dragons horn after defeating him! One down
four more to go!!

West of the Murals
-------------------

Obviously they mean Mural Valley, so head over to that
area. Warp to Talta, then exit the village. Fly around
Talta to find the coastal road. Land the mechat near
the pile of rubble blocking the path. He is flying
close by to that.

Lightning(forgot name) Dragon
-----------------------------

This guy is TOUGH. His lightning attacks are powerful
and extremely fast. On second thought if you do what
I said above this guy is a pansy. Following that
strategy, not one of my characters died!! I was even
able to cast shiElda and shella with my white mage
because I never needed to heal!!


East of the Aurors
------------------

This one is right near Kelaso Village. Warp or fly
there. Now on this little are you will see a small
platform near the village that you can only access
by landing on. It is not very big and it is very
close you should not have a hard time finding it.
When you land the dragon will appear right in
front of you!

Blizzard Dragon
---------------

I can not give any better strategy on any of these dragons
that is better than above. If you take the time to do that
they won't stand a chance!


Near to the water Flowing Underground
--------------------------------------

Obviously this is the Underground River(duh!!).
I really don't know the fastest way there, haven't
traveled there myself yet. I know Baroy Town leads
to it, but the has to be a quicker way to reach
the area. I will let you know when I find it.

Near crystals that grow in a cave
---------------------------------

Not quite sure about this one yet. Going to check
e-mails I know someone sent me information by now...
I will update this one after. I know where the
caves of crystal are but need more info first.
It is either Underground Seacave or Gul Mountains.
Barrier Chest List
------------------

Red-Jibral Castle by Lab-3000 gold
White-Jibral Castle by lab-Level 6 groundus
Blue-Alumaru village behind Jeelala house
Green-Alumaru Village
Blue-Ancient ruins-cave(Beginning of game)
Black-two on 3rd floor of Mecha Base
Green-Wilderness Camp
Black-lal Mountain Sheep Tribe Village
==============================================================

Achievement List
----------------

All of the Max rank and max all classes achievements I do not
explain. I think they are pretty left explanitory. You need
to hit rank 99 with each job for one achievement and hit rank
99 with all jobs as same charaters for other achievement, He
also need to hit level 99 wit hall character. You can use "Job
Hearts" to level ranks, but from 98-99 you actually need to
level it yourself without using a heart to gain the achievement.

1) Back Attack(Included)
---------------

This on is easy just attack an enemy from behind on
the field and you will recieve this one. You should
get it right at the start of the game.

2) Complete 100 Back Attacks(Included)
-----------------------------

This one is a little trickier. Try to back attack as
many monsters as you can. Certain monsters such as
wolves and Kelolon aways run away, so you can really
rack up some back attacks on these guys. Later in the
game you will come to an underground river, where you
get the chance to fight 50+ Kelolons who all run away
from you. I think this is the BEST spot to get your
back attacks up. So spend some time here and you
should get it if you have the patients!

3) Multi-monster Encounter
--------------------------

Link a few different monsters together and fight them.
This is another simple battle. I am not sure how many you
need to link, but I think it needs to be at least 3-4 at
once. I am really not sure, but a links 2-3 monsters plenty of
times along the journey and at the end of the game I didn't
have many Multi-monster encounters. Keep linking mobs and
you are bound to get one without much effort!

4)10+ Monsters in an Encounter(Included)
-------------------------------

This one is very tricky. I have yet to find a really good
area to pull this off. The BEST areas to do it if you try
though are by the Mecha Base(Side Quest) where robots
appear in it's path. I managed to link 8 robots at once in
this area. I just fell shot. You can try the kelolons you
use for back attacks, but woth them running away it is kind
of hard.

5)100 Monster Fights
---------------------

This one is doable but will take a LONG time! I have not
bother to do this yet. At the end of the game I had about
50+, but I have not gone back to do this yet. Just
find a good group of monster that fight to link and repeat
this 100 times!

6) Beat King Poo
-----------------

Found this guy too. He is located in the Ancient Ruins Caverns.
The are you were in at the beginning of the game! This in an
extremely tough battle. In fact, probably the toughest boss
in the entire game!!

7)Beat Golden Poo Snake(Included)
------------------------

I got this guy!! I managed to find him on my own too. In
fact, I think this is the only guide to date that tells
how to find and beat this guy. Damn, I'm good! Check
the Side Quest Section above to get the info on this guy!

8)Beat Gold Mecha Robot
------------------------

I found him. This guy is located in the Ancient Factory.

10)Mechat Shooting Stage 1 Perfect(Included)
----------------------------------

Ok, this is included in the walkthrough. I tell you exactly
how to beat it so follow the directions when the time comes.
You HAVE to beat it on normal in order to get the achievement!

11)Mechat Shooting Stage 2 perfect(Included)
----------------------------------

Again included in the walkthrough. This one is in the side
quest section though and has to do with Upper Mecha Base.
I highly recommend upgrading your Mechat first at the dock area
included at the walkthrough. This stage is very hard. On normal
I beat it without taking any damage from missiles, red lazers,
but I still did not get a perfect. So you either need to beat
this without Retrying if you die.(You need to reload the game
and start from the nearest save point instead.) or maybe
one machine gun bullet hit me and it didn't show any damage
cause it did like 1 damage. I really dom't know but I plan on
working on this again today to. I already beat it twice with
perfect and no achievement!!!!This is the HARDEST shooting game.

12)Mechat Shooting Stage 3 Perfect(Included)
-----------------------------------

This one is included in the walktrhough too, so don't worry about
missing it. This is easiser than stage 2 just follow the
instructions.

13) Wagon Escort Game perfect(Included)
-----------------------------

Again included in the walkthrough, just follow the guide. I
tell you exactly what to do.

14)Dragon:Max one Class
-----------------------

15)Minotaur: Max one class
--------------------------

16) Phoenix:Max One Class
-------------------------

17) Dragon:Max All Class Ranks
------------------------------

18)Minotaur:Max All Class Ranks
-------------------------------

19)Phoenix:Max All Class Ranks
------------------------------

20)Maxed out all character Levels
---------------------------------

21) Got Ultimate Weapon Bracelot(Included)
---------------------------------

You get this by collecting all the "Mystery Parts". All the
parts are included in this walkthrough. If you follow it you
will find them all. There is also a list in the side quest
section on where to find them. After you collect all six bring
them to Jibral Lab and you will get this.

22)Got Final War Neckalce(Included)
--------------------------

Again, the secret parts. You get both of there together when
you turn the parts in.

23)Got Dragon bracelot
----------------------

I have not found this one yet!! At the end of the game in
Mecha Robo town a robot mentions something about killing
5 mythical beasts to get a special bracelot that Nene's
power was stored in. I have no clue about this yet,but
I think that clue deals with obtaining this.Even after doing
all side quests I have not heard anything about it.You hear
rumors in Kelaso about 5 dragons and you kill 2-3 in the Side
quests sections.Maybe Golden Poo Snake,Gold Mecha Robot, and
King Poo are the other three. Again I have no clue.

24)Activate all Warp Devices(Included)
-----------------------------

You will activate them all if you follow the walkthrough.The
last 3 are all in the last dungeon of the game, so you should
have that many keys left at that point.

25)Removed all Barriers
------------------------

You need to remove all black, white, red, blue, and green
barriers in the game.All the devices you get following the
walkthrough,except the Black device obtained from a side quest.
I am working on a list now, but it is far from complete.I
plan on working on this soon too and updating the section.

26)Complete Monster record
---------------------------

You should kill every monster in every new area as soon as you
enter it. Really make sure you do this for areas such as Nene
Fortress that you can not enter again.My monster record is still
not complete at the end of the game, but I think I need to kill
King Poo,etc. to finish this. This is a daunting task because you
need to check every area of the entire world.

27)Got 1 million Gold
----------------------

You need to have 1 mil gold on you in order to get this achievement.
If youuse your encyclopedia you can see how much items on you are
worth it you want to sell them to get this achievement.You can also
you mega medicine trick in Baroy Town to try to get this one.Another
pain in the ass.

28)CLosed Flying Fortress Door(Included)
------------------------------

It's in the walkthrough.It can be a big pain.Just tap A as fast
as possible.If one robots gets though and you have to fight
them you will NOT get this achievement.

29)Pulled in the Flying Fortress(Included)
--------------------------------

You will get this from following the main storyline. It is very
easy to get, just hit the onscreen prompts/

30)Rescue Kluke(Included)
-------------------------

You need to save Kluke without falling from the robots and
using wind magic to catch her.Tap A as soon as it appear,you need
to be very fast in order to do this!

31)Got to Nene before the Bomb went off(Included)
----------------------------------------

You need to do this as part of the main story line.Not too hard,
just make it to Nene in his fortress before thetimer runs out.

32)Saved Kluke from Choking(Included)
----------------------------

Get the collar off of Kluke. You do this following the main
story. Pretty hard to screw this one up.If you do just give up
on achievements now!!

33)Summoned Shu's Shadow(Included)
------------------------

You have to do this to continue the story. So don't worry
just mash A when the time times!!

34)Escaped from Squashtrich(Included)
---------------------------

You need to not get stomped at all by this giant ostich machine at
the top of Nene's Fortress.When the battle menu comes up you need
to flee.If you get stomped even once you need to restart from
the nearest save point.If you try again it will not give you an
achievement. I know from experience!!

35)Killer Bat:Max one class
----------------------------

36)Sabor-tooth:Max one Class
----------------------------

37)Killer bat:Max out all classes
---------------------------------

38)Minotaur:Max out all Classes
-------------------------------

39) Got all Dragon Items
--------------------------

I have no idea what this is?I am going to look farther into it.
Any information would be appreciated!

40)Escaped more than 50 times
-------------------------------

Flee from battles over 50 times.This is not hard to do.It took me
a while. I made it to the end of the game without running away
2 times.The 1st was a battle you have to run from!So keep entering
battles and fleeing.In my opinion this should have been NEVER FLEE
FROM BATTLE!!

41)Equip All Mechat parts(Included)
------------------------------------

Almost all of the mechat parts are listed in Side Quests,Mechat
dock.I know I am missing one there a just got. I will update this
later,but most pieces are gained from doing other side quests.

42)Ambushed more than 50 Times
------------------------------

You need to be ambushed more than 50 times.Just keep letting
enemies attack you from the back a guess.I have not worked this
one at all yet.

43)Moon Laser Game perfect(included)
--------------------------

Again this is included in the walkthrough.It can be a tough
mini-game. Keep up and follow the hints and tips.Good Luck!
