The game was originally created for the Sega CD and now has been remade with 75% new text, a soundtrack, updated graphics and anime as well as a hardcover book and a cloth map. Other versions of Lunar have been remade onto the Sega Saturn which was released two years ago. The game is created by Game Arts and distributed by Working Designs. There once was a young boy named Alex. The hero of the game. He lived with his dear mother and father in the town of Burg.. His parents are very nice.. they even offered to take care of a girl whom was named Luna. She had a very beautiful voice which combines nicely with Alex's musical talents. Besides Luna, Alex had two other friends, Ramus, a young entepreneur whom wishes to move to a large city someday and become wealthy, and Nall, a little creature whom was given to Alex at an early age by a mysterious man. Every day Alex visited the memorial to his hero, Dyne outside of town. Alex idols Dragonmaster Dyne and hopes he will fullfill his dream and join the ranks of him. Alex and the gang were all hoping to go on a quest one day. That dream came true when Ramus found out about a quest one day. They're suppose to find some sort of diamond in a cave to the east. Of course Alex and all were escatic and enthusiastic about the idea because this is one of their first real adventures. Ramus went to get some snacks to munch on for the trip whereas Alex went to practice for a singing competition with Luna for the upcoming festival. As usual Alex was late for practice. They began to practice with Luna singing and Alex playing his ocarina. Half way through the song Alex quits playing with a worried face. Luna looks at him and asks what's wrong. He tells her about the upcoming adventure to the cave and how they have to find about the diamond. At first Luna was worried as she didn't know what risks were involved, but knows that she cannot stop him, so she insists on coming along to see what will come out of the adventure.. and so the quest begins. Who will this game appeal to? The game will appeal to mostly fans of the classic 2D style RPG fans with simple a to use interface and stunning anime cutscenes and great voice acting. The gameplay is pretty easy to comprehend. The main commands are AI and Command. When using AI, the computer plays for you but don't use it because the computer always uses powerful magic on weak characters. After using command, you can defend, attack, use an item or magic. This is my very first faqs so please be patient as I try and find everything. You can find the latest version of this Faqs at my page, http://rpg.squareworld.org. There are spoilers in the game and also, if you have the Sega CD version, I highly suggest that you try and find a faqs for that version of the game. Also, the Japanese version of the game may be slighly different, such as Kyle's most powerful sword isn't obtained from the Black Dragon's Cave etc. The differences may be minor, but not everything on those versions are the same on this one. Also, I cannot answer questions from the Sega CD version since I haven't had the opportunity to play it. Anyways, enjoy the faqs. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Spoiler Alert - =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Just a word of warning before you begin looking at this faqs. There will undoubtly, be many spoilers contained in this faqs, so if you want to fully enjoy Lunar and wonder what the next unsuspecting twist will be, then try and play without a walkthrough. Also, there might be a few spoilers in the characters section.. Anyways, I'll try and limit spoilers to those who are just starting out and don't want to read ahead in the walkthrough. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Different Character Stats - =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Wisdom : Wisdom basically tells you how much damage your magic attack will be so it's better to have a lot of wisdom. HP : Hit Points (Life) MP : Magic Points (Magic) Attack : The higher the value, the more powerful the attack Defense : The higher the value, the more you can withstand attacks Agility : If your agility value is high, than your character will be able to react quicker during battles. Magic En : Magic Endurance is how much you can withstand magic attacks #Attacks : The more #Attacks you have, the more attacks you can have during that character's turn so if you had two attacks, your character could hit an enemy twice in one turn but it doesn't apply to magic however. Range : The distance your character can travel in the battle Luck : The higher the value, the more you're able to avoid attacks and the more you're able to successfully perform critical hits. EXP : This is how many experience points that you've accumulated so far in the game. Next Lvl : This shows you how many experience points you will need to gain before gaining a level. Level : The level your character is currently at. The higher the level, the more powerful the attack. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Boss Guide - =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Unlike other RPGs, you can't just level up to defeat a boss. It's not that simple. For example, if you're at the cave of trials and before you got there, you leveled up, say to level 25 which is a lot more powerful than enemies in that level but once you reach the boss, the boss will level up with Alex. For example.. Every boss has base stats and once you level up, those "base stats" are multiplied with Alex's stats. For example, the base stats of the Saline Slimer are (HP80, Attack 2, Defense 1, Agility 1, Wisdom 1 and Magic Endurance 1). So, the bosses stats are multiplied with Alex's stats. If you had say, 90HP, the bosses HP would be, 80x90, which is 720HP and the same goes for the rest of the stats. So it doesn't really matter if you level up or not but there is a cap where the enemies can't level up. Once you reach level 50, it's smooth sailing from then on but then again, you won't be at level 50 when you reach the end of the game. Anyways, here is a guide to how much you'll have to calculate your level in accordance with Alex's HP. Saline Slimer : Alex's HP x 80HP Aqua Lizard : Alex's HP x 80HP Truffle Troubler : Alex's HP x 120HP Dragonmaster Zoc : Alex's HP x 160HP Vile Crustacean : Alex's HP x 180HP Bronze Dogs(2) : Alex's HP x 90HP =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Status Ailments - =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Poisoned : Your characters will lose a bit of HP after each round. Stoned : Your chracter can't move but you can heal them or use items on them. Confused : Your characters will randomly attack anyone, including allies, who are within range. Sleep : You can't carry out commands but they'll rewaken once they have been hit. Mute : You've been silenced and can't use magic. Paralyze : You can't command the character and it's difficult to heal them. Faint : Your characters are gone. They cannot do anything unless they are resurrected. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Commands - =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= AI : Try very hard not to use this command. The AI will consume your MP and use powerful, and useless attacks on weak enemies. Items : You can you your healing items or mp restore items or any other items you have in stock and you may also use your weapon's ability. For example, if you have a fire rod, and you select the fire rod from the items menu during the battle then you will shoot fire towards the enemy without MP consumption. Attack : Use weapon based attacks. Magic : Use magic based attacks. Command : This lets you control the characters instead of AI. Defend : With this function, you can move anywhere on the battle field away from the enemy. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Controls - =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= These are just the basic buttons used in the game. The start button is the only unused button in the game. |Button: | Description of Use: |-------------------------------------------------------------- |Start | Not used | |--------------------------------------------------------------| |Select | Open up the menu | |--------------------------------------------------------------| |Analog Button | Switch to Analog mode | |--------------------------------------------------------------| |Dir- Buttons | Move cursor / Ctrl direction of characters | |--------------------------------------------------------------| |Triangle | Returns to previous menu / screen | |--------------------------------------------------------------| |Circle | Save Screen | |--------------------------------------------------------------| |X Button | Open chests, Confirm commands, start chats | |--------------------------------------------------------------| |Square | Open up the menu | |--------------------------------------------------------------| |L1/R1 | Change characters on menus / Display status | | | Choose which memory card to save on | |--------------------------------------------------------------| |R2 | Turn the dual shock function or off. | |--------------------------------------------------------------| |L2 | Turn the names for spells on or off | =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Updates - =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Version 1.0: This is my first gamefaqs so if there's an error or something then just tell me. Anyhow, the faqs so far is half done. I will implement more as I play along the game. I will include up to the end of the demo and then gradually add more info. Version 1.5: I added the bromides section and added a few more questions in the FAQs. I also added a bit to the walkthrough, and also the locations to where the red chests and their contents. Version 1.6: Minor updates.. I added a few sections in the introduction area and I also added a bit to the walkthrough, up to the Red Dragon cave. Version 1.7: I'd like to thank, Kevin Moore, a big contributer who supplied the monster guide and wrote out the lyrics for the music section. If you have any questions, you can email him at [email protected] Version 1.9: I added a lot more to the walkthrough and I'm finished up to the Talon Mines. I'll be adding the Ruids very soon. Anyways, I finished adding some of the sections, finished the characters section and a bit more. Version 2.0: I finished up to the Grindery. I'll have that section done soon. I also updated the charcters section and added some codes. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= FAQs - =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Q) When did the game release? A) June 2nd for retail and May 28 for online orders. Q) What's this I hear about the bug in the demo? A) If you give Nall, Alex's ocarina in the demo, something will happen, although I'm not sure what will happen but you will not be able to finish the game. Q) How do I get Nall to attack? A) You have to get Kyle to use his fastcut attack and have the rest of the party escape. Afterwards, Nall will attack. Kyle has to be at lvl 99. Q) Why won't my levels increase in the demo? A) Working Designs put a level 12 cap. However you can still collect money.. But, don't go and kill enemies to build up your experience points because regardless of whether or not you have 99999 experience points built up or fifty thousand built up, you'll start off at level 12 when you start the game. Q) Laike looks pretty cool. Do I get to use him? A) Yep :) Q) What's the highest level I can achieve? A) Level 99 Q) Is there dual shock support? A) Yep Q) Is this version different from the other versions? A) Yes.. For instance, in the original version, Luna doesn't join you and the bridge after the wierd woods is broken. A lot of things have been taken out such as overworld random battles and the anime and graphics have also been udpated. Nothing too drastic though. Q) How do I open the red chests? A) You have to get the Theif's Crest.. look below for a list of locations and areas and what is contained in the chests there. Q) What's this I hear about revealing Alex's Magic in Black Rose Street? A) Oh that's nothing. In the sega CD version, you had no magic until you discovered his magic on Black Rose Street. Q) How do I use a weapon's magic ability? A) To use a weapon's magic ability, select the item function, then the weapon during the battle. Q) How do I open the red chests? A) After finishing the scenario at Reza, you'll get a Thieves Crest which should allow you to open these chests. For a list of where the chests are at the bottom. Q) Does leveling up help beat bosses? A) Unfortunately, no. Well, when you level up, the boss does so too so it doesn't really matter but ah well, it adds to the overall challenge. For a list of how the boss function works, look above. By the way, there is a level 50 cap according to Victor Ireland. So, after Level 50, you're home free... I presume. Q) What are the purposes of the Bromides? A) They actually serve no purpose other than a bunch of scantly dressed female characters in the game. However, they do boost up your stats ever so slightly. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walktrhough Part 1 - The Beginning =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Burg- Enemies: None Items Found: Fire Ring, Daggar, Sling, Dragon Wings, Starlight, Ocarina You start the game off with Alex admiring Dragonmaster Dyne's statue again. However, Nall comes up and warns you that you're late for a meeting with Luna. So, you leave and on the way to meet Luna, Ramsus encounters you and tells you about a journey to the Dragon Cave. You decide to go and then now you meet Luna while Ramus leaves to get prepared. Now you're in the town of Burg. Firstly, go to your house and talk to your parents. Go to the basement and you'll notice that the trunks are locked. Talk to your parents and then go back down and collect the items that are contained inside the trunk. You'll also find a starlight which is useful. Starlights just basically restore your MP partially. Now go north to meet Luna. After a brief anime cutscene, you tell Luna all about the adventure. She's not happy about the idea but quickly forces Alex to take her along. Afterwards, go back to your house and your parents will give you and Luna a weapon (Sling and Daggar). Next you'll see Ramus by the entrance. Go meet him and leave for your journey. Once on the world map, go around the top of the chain of mountains and on to the right side. At the bottom you should see the entrance. If you attempt to go to the wierd woods, you'll be restricted from going there. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walktrhough Part 1 - Dragon Cave =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Slime, Baboons, Synapse Guard, Mutant Fly Items Found: Dragon Ring, Dragon Diamond, Star Light, Herbs(5), Silver(?) Before I begin, I'll have to warn you.. The cave can be tough if you don't have enough Herbs or good enough weapons. Thus, I recommend that you stay near the entrance and go after the Slimes until you get enough money to go back to town and upgrade your weapons/armor. Explore the cave and avoid baboons at all costs. They can deal a great amount of damage to you and since you want to conserve herbs and MP, just run from them. You might want to avoid Synapse Guards also (Diamond-shaped enemy). Once you've gone through the cave, you should come to a door. Enter and you will find Quark. Don't worry, you don't have to fight him. :) He'll tell you about the diamond and the ring. So you're off again and now in search of the ring in exchange for the diamond. Leave the room and head south/west of the door and enter the door. You should see a few Albino Baboons. Enter the other door and you should end up in a room with a few ice blocks, several chests and one albino baboon. However, you don't need to attack the baboon. Just go in front of him and he should run in a straigt direction so you don't have to worry about him chasing you. Have him run in the directions of the ice blocks to open the way to the chests. The one on the top/left should contain the dragon ring. Once you've obtained the dragon ring, you might want to get the others which mostly contain money or go back to Quark. Once you've arrived back at Quark's domain, he'll give you the crystal and tell you about his other dragon counterparts. Afterwards, head back to burg. The statue of Althena can now heal your party so go the statue to rest. Now you want to try and sell the crystal :) Unfortunately, the only item store in town doesn't have enough money to pay for the crystal so what does the employee suggest? Go to Meribia to attempt to sell the crystal. After, Ramus will want to go to Meribia to try and sell it and of course, asks Alex to come along and asks that he not tell Luna. Comply to his demands and head out to the wierd woods, which was one restricted earlier. However, the woods have not yet cleared up and thus, Ramus chickens out and heads back to town for the night. Go back to your house and talk to Luna and your parents. During the night, she'll meet you at the Dragonmaster Dyne monument.. And of course, force Alex to allow her to come. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walktrhough Part 1 - Onward to Meribia! =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Wierd Woods- Enemies: Flytrapper, Spore, Goblin, Gorgon Items Found: Antidote(?), Herbs(?) A good portion of the enemies can poison you but you probably won't have to use any Antidotes. My characters were at a low level.. Somewhere around 5 or 6 so the enemies posed to be quite a challenge so level up a bit first. Just battle your way through and eventually you'll come out to an open area and encounter a lot of Gorgons. However, fret not, Laike will come out and help you out. Laike is one of the most powerful characters you'll first encounter. He's at a level around 99 (I don't really recall what level he's at) or so and can attack three times and deals a lot of damage.. somewhere around 290 - 320 damage. After, head down to Saith. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walktrhough Part 1 - Saith =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Firstly, you might want to upgrade the weapons and get armour for the characters. It's optional though but you should at least upgrade Luna's and Alex's weapon. After, head down to the docks and enter the building. The captain will inform you on how he lost his Sea Chart Map to this gambler(Brett) in the bar. After, head to the bar and have a little chat with Brett and challenge him to a gambling game. Don't worry if you lose the money (Or the Dragon Diamond which you'll wager on the 2nd try) at first because he's cheating. He's actually using a two sided coin which Ramus will spot. After you discover his cheating, he tells you that he lost the map to a woman who lived in the Old Hag's Forest. If you talk to him again, he'll give you a fortune cane which can be equipped onto Luna. Make sure you heal and equip your characters and leave for the Old Hag's Forest in the upper North West of the map. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walktrhough Part 1 - Old Hag's Forest =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Mutant Ants, Killer Wasps, Killer Fly, Mantile Rapper Items Found: Starlight, Herbs(3), Money(400) The enemies here are pretty hard. I basically just zoomed right through without fighting but you'll have to sooner or later to prepare for the upcoming boss. You can either go around the right or left. The Old Hag's house is at the very top. Be cautious of chests in open areas. Once you open them, flies will fly from several directions and chase you. Once you reach the top, you'll meet Nash who is trapped in a cage. After getting him out, go to the Old Hag's house. In the house, the Old Hag will, in exchange for water cane which Nash obligingly gives. (note: Or go back to the village for some reactions the towns people at saith will have when they see nash before visiting the woman :) After, head back down and if you want there's a starlight hidden on the left side of the forest by the Mantile Rapper. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walktrhough Part 1 - Saith =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Boss: Saline Slimer Once you head back to Saith and go to the house by the docks, the Captain will inform you of a slime that is slowly digesting the ship and of course you're the only one that can save it. Make sure your characters are at, at least level 10 with Alex's Vigor skill and Luna's Cascade Song. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Boss #1 - Saline Slimer =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Recommended Level: 12 First off, your regular attacks will be virtually useless. This blob can heal everytime you heal it from 50HP to 90HP. Make sure you're at level 10 at least and have Alex's Vigor skill and Luna's Cascade Song. During battle, have Ramus act as bait since Ramus himself does little damage incase the slime uses his mucus attack which will encase one of your members in a blob which you can't get him / her out of. Once you use the Vigor Skill on Alex first, Nash second, have him use his Dancing Sword technique and have Nash use his Lightning attack. His Dancing Sword technique will do about 210 damage and Nash's lightning attacks will do about 59 damage. The Slime also has other attacks, one which he uses his hands to attack, does about 29 damage. Have Luna heal incase. Anyways, the battle isn't too hard and he has about oh, 850hp I believe.. around. This battle isn't too tough. Flame Explosion will not work on this boss. After the boss, Luna will announce that she won't go and will go back to Burg. The next morning, just as the ship is about to sail, Luna joins you again and now it's off to Meribia! =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 1 - The Voyage to Meribia =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Once the ship is about to leave, Alex starts to regret not asking Luna to come and just as the ship takes off, Alex tells Luna how he wants her to come etc..so she gets yanked up onto the ship just as it leaves the docks. Afterwards, you can talk to Nash and Ramus or meet up with Luna who is in the cabins. After that your whole party goes to sleep for the night. In the middle of the night, Alex wakes up to find Luna missing from her bunk. You race out of the room and look around the deck and eventually find her on the lookout tower and is singing. A anime cutscene will follow. The next morning, you arrive at Meribia! =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - Meribia! =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Once you arrive at Meribia, you find out that Nash has some important matter to attend to and Ramus will go off to try and sell the Dragon Diamond. So, it's only you, Nall and Luna. Now you can go explore. Explore the area and make sure that you upgrade your weapons and armor at the weapon shop on Black Rose Street. Though some of them may cost a lot of money, they'll be worth it for the upcoming battles. Afterwards, you can either stop at a few more sites such as the other shops or go see Master Mell. Go north and you'll eventually see castle walls. Enter through the main entrance and you'll encounter Master Mell. After a brief anime cutscene, and introduction, Master Mell will challenge you to a fight. You don't have to get worked up about this because regardless of whether or not you win or lose you don't have to win this particular battle. You probably won't win unless you really leveled up at which case you'll be rewarded 100EXP. After the battle, head to the shops, west, and you'll meet Nash and Royce. She's a fortune teller and will tell you your fortune. After a short cutscene, head to Black Rose St. In the items shop you will see Ramus negotiating a deal with the dealer who agrees to buy the Dragon Diamond for 2000 silver pieces. However, the dealer is taking quite a long time to get the money and when Nall checks behind the counter, he's gone! At the back of counter, you discover a door that leads to the sewers. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - Sewers of Meribia =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Grog Snake, Ammonia, Evil Wisp Items Found: Silver 250(2), Herbs, Antidote(2), Starlight(3), Boss: Aqua Lizard Recommended Level: 14 The sewers isn't too tough. You might want to level up here before encountering the boss. Since you can just go the statue to heal yourself, this is an ideal place to level up. Try and get all the treasure chests. However, if you don't want to level up, try and avoid all the enemies at all costs because you want to conserve your MP for the last boss unless you want to waste all your starlights but they're pretty expensive so you should conserve them. Once you arrive at the last boss, be prepared and make sure you're well leveled.. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - Aqua Lizard =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Much like the blob that you fought earlier, use the sword dance technique along with the vigor sword technique. Have Luna use her cascade song to boost up Alex's attack/defense. The lizard will most likely use the flame breath attack which causes about 50 damage so beware. Make sure you're leveled enough and have Ramus act as bait again because his attacks aren't as good as Alex's. By the way, sometimes, he will back up, making it impossible without using a bow or some sort of long range weapon but if you're using a sword technique with Alex, you can hit him. Once you win, the dealer attempts to fork over 500 of the 20000 silver pieces but of course it's not enough. In addition to the 500 silver pieces, Ramus manages to get the store :) Ramus becomes the store owner, the store owner is the assistant and you get half of the winnings. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - Magic City of Vane =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= After winning, leave Meribia and loop around to the right side. After that, a small cutscene will occur and you should see Vane but you can't enter yet. First go to the little circles. Talk to one of the people standing by the circle and they'll tell you that outsiders aren't allowed and that you must get permission from Phacia. Head to the Shrine of Althena which is that big monstrosity in the center. (The giant tower). Once you're inside, talk to the different people and go straigt down the hall and Nash will go fetch Phacia. After a short cuscene, head back to the warp circles. You should be able to go BUT, you have to go through the cave of trials. It's not that tough however, before you go, save in a different file incase and if you're not leveled up, go to the Nanza Barrier entrance to level up a bit. It's off to the left but don't go through yet since you should go to Vane First. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - Cave of Trials =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Mushroom, Goblin Items Found: Healing Ring, 250 Silver(3), Herbs Boss: Truffle Troubler There are three parts to this part, each harder than the previous ones and the use of items isn't allowed. This cave won't be that hard but again, make sure you're at least at a good level.. maybe 15-16 for the boss. The enemies are pretty easy so just go through and explore the cave. There are some pretty good items to be found here. After you go through a part, you will meet the same man you met at the entrance and will heal you when necessary. Once you get to the last part, make sure you save. You're going to be facing... =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - Boss: Truffle Troubler =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Don't get worked up over this boss. Sure he may seem tough at first but just make sure you're at a good enough level. Conserve Alex's MP.. since all your MP is required for Sword Dance. As with the other enemies, use sword dance on the boss but make sure that Luna uses the cascade spell on him twice. Don't use Vigor since that will just waste Alex's MP.. Continue to use Sword Spell and when you run out of MP just use regular attacks. Have Luna heal after every turn if she can. The boss has two main attacks. One that attacks the whole screen and does about about 30-31 damage to everyone and the other one does damage to one person and does around 50 damage. If you run out of MP just use regular attacks with Alex and hope that he doesn't use any of his paralysis attacks on Alex or else your whole match could be in jeopardy. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - The Magic City of Vane =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Just explore around and buy new equipment. Afterwards, head off to the big building at the back. That's the Magic Guild er school. *ahem*. Explore around while Luna goes to the room to rest and meat Ghaleon. Anyways, after, once you decide you're ready, head to Mia's room (the stairs at the bottom left of the school). After talking with her, Nash will come and take you out of there.. since he is trying to get Mia's attention :) Anyways, after, go and meet Ghaleon who is on the same floor as where Luna went to relax. After talking to him, you find out that there is a so called Dragonmaster at Lann. Now you have to go and investigate. Doh! Make sure you're prepared and head off through the Nanza Barrier which is just left of the shrine. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - Nanza Barrier =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Giga Wasp, Antorian, Mud Cyclops, Items Found: Starlight, 50 Silver (2), Herbs (2), Enemy Chests (3) Boss: None Nanza is one tough area if you're not leveled up. You may want to level Nash up first in the Cave of Trials. Anyways, I didn't bother fighting any enemies and just zipped right through since you want to conserve your MP. Anyways, halfway through, you'll get to the Nanza Barrier. The Nanza Barrier is just a bunch of thieves that were hired to protect the area by fighting off monsters etc. Kyle is the chief of the area. Once you try and go through, you'll discover that you can't go through unless you talk to Kyle. So firstly, go to the north tower, he won't be there so talk to the guy on the second level walking around. After, head to the east tower, head to the top and talk to the girl. Afterwards, head to the basement and go to the cafeteria and talk to a few people to find out that he went to his room. Next, talk to the guy in the room and you'll discover that he's the jail cell. Talk to him and a brief cutscene depicting a giant bubble pop out of his nose :P will come up. The guard will talk to you about how waking him up isn't good because of the fight he and his girlfriend.. had. He then proposes a deal with you. If you don't disturb him, you're allowed access to Lann. Too bad you can't choose to stick around and wake him up :) Just continue through. The enemies here are equally as tough as the ones on the other side of the Nanza Barrier. You'll notice that you're almost at the end when you see a bunch of people lined up. Once you exit the barrier, head north to the riverside city of Lann. At Lann, you'll discover that this fake Dragonmaster is stealing the village's famous fish but no one will do anything about him and a lot of people doubt that he could be thee dragonmaster. Anyways... Go north to the hut and you'll encounter Jessica. She's giving a speech and notices you entering. Afterwards, she'll join your group in finding this fake Dragonmaster. Get the equipment you need then head to the docks and talk to the guy who has the canoe-like boat. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - Lann Island =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Monocrop, The Deep, Barrel Snake, Nightmare, Items Found: 500 Silver, Enemy Box (5), 200 Silver (2), Boss: Fake Dragonmaster Zoc Once you get here, you'll notice the wierd looking swamps. Try not to walk in the swamp because your HP will decrease if you do so. Also, the enemies here aren't too tough so they shouldn't pose to be a problem. The tent in which the fake Dragonmaster lives is northwest of where you start out. Just make your way around and beware of fake chests. Once you reach the tent, level up before talking to the guy. Afterwards, get ready for.. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - Boss: Fake Dragonmaster =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= This is one of the easier bosses. As with the other bosses, have Luna use cascade on Alex twice (instead of vigor to conserve Alex' mp) and have Alex use Sword Dance. Use Jessica for regular attacks and/or for healing but her attacks are pretty good. Have Nash use the lightning attack. After about 1300HP, the dragon that the fake dragonmaster is sitting on blows up and the dragonmaster will run away. You'll get 600EXP for your trouble. After beating Zoc, he explains what he was doing with his "so-called" dragon which was really a phony and apologizes then flees. Once you arrive back at Lann, you'll meet Phacia who was supposidely, was there to investigate the Dragonmaster ordeal also. Anyways, she congratulates you on a job well done and then parts. Jessica leaves your party also. After you finish with Lann, head back through the Nanza barrier. If you wish, you can collect all the chests now and/or fight the enemies. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - Getting Locked Up =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Once you arrive in Vane, Nash will leave and tell you to get ready to meet Lemia. Look around and get all the necessary items that you'll need. Once you go to the grand hall to meet this Lemia person, she tells her guards to cease you and put you in jail. Of course, Mia opposes her mother.. as does Luna but nothing can be done. You get put in Jail and Luna gets captured. Once you get put in jail, you hear a familiar voice. It's Mia's voice. She's come to get you out and has brought Nall with her. After your brief chat with her, she hands over Althena's Mirror which is able to reveal the truth because she doesn't believe that the Lemia that arrested Alex was really her mother. After leaving the jail cell, you will hear a woman mumbling in another cell. Mia claims to think that this woman will know where to go and how to save Luna and discovers that she is wearing a mask that is preventing her from remembering the past. You decide to rescue her also incase she should happen to be of some service. The woman happens to mumble the words Crystal Tower. That name happens to ring a bell with Mia so then you decide to head there. When you're about to enter, Nash comes by and wants to join.. mostly because he can't dare see Mia get injured :) =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - Crystal Tower =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Reflector, Plasma, Blood Lord Items Found: Angel Ring, 250 & 500 & 750 Silver, Boss: 4 Gargoyles The crystal tower isn't too hard except for the fact that you will have to de-equip all of Alex's, Mia's and Nash's weapons so it'll be all magic but for some strange reason, even after de-equipping Alex, he can still use his Sword Dance and sword techniques with a sword. :P Just go through the different levels. Some doors just lead to chests. Try and conserve MP so just rush through some areas without confronting the enemies. Mia's attacks are pretty strong so don't worry. Just keep a few starlights and herbs incase. Once you reach the top you'll find Ghaleon, Lemia, Phacia and Royce. Mia tries to confront Lemia and use the mirror. Even though nothing happens, Mia knows that she can't be Mia's mother. Lemia then asks Ghaleon to force Luna to continue singing but Ghaleon, disobeys her and goes to Mia's aid. After using the mirror, that mysterious woman whom you brought along through the crystal tower will emerge from the mask and reveal her true form and say how the mirror allowed her to take the mask off. She confronts the fake Lemia then the fake Lemia gives in and reveals that she is actually Xenobia who wanted to overthrow the Magic Guild. A brief anime cutscene will occur showing Xenobia, Royce and Phacia and their true roles as being in the Vile Tribe, an evil tribe that is set out to destroy everything. Xenobia will zap out and will summon 4 ultragoyles. Too bad Ghaleon just sits there and doesn't help out. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 2 - Boss: 4 Gargoyles =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Just use the Sword Dance/Cascade Spell/Vigor technique with Alex, have Nash use his lightning attack and have Mia use her Blizzard attack. They're not that hard to beat and later on in the game you will have to fight these enemies in the dungeons. Anyways, if you don't want to fight them and are positive you can't win then just use Luna's escape spell which which will send the enemies away but you won't get the EXP however. Afterwards, you will end up back in a room with Ghaleon. He tells you how he must stop the Vile Tribe and how he must find the locations of the dragons and since Alex already knows the first location, Quark, Ghaleon asks Alex to take him there. Alex obligingly does so. After, head off to Meribia and have a chat with Master Mell. You will encounter Jessica there. She will pretend not to know you. After a brief chat, Master Mell will tell you how he can't go and that you will have to stay overnight as the ship gets prepared. Afterwards, you, Alex and Jessica will have a talk. In the morning your ship leaves and you end up in Saith. Walk around and talk to the different people. After, head to Burg. Go to the music practice area for a small in-game sequence. Just go around and talk to the different people. When you're ready, head off to the White Dragon's Cave. Since Ghaleon's with you, you won't have to worry about fighting anyone since he has powerful attacks which do close to 250 damage to each person. Too bad you can't go to a different location with enemies with higher EXP to level up. Anyways, once you reach Quark, talk to him and Ghaleon will ask whether or not Luna is the one. Of course, Alex has no clue what Ghaleon is talking about. Soon, Quark tells Ghaleon since he was the best friend of Dragonmaster Dyne. After Ghaleon finds out, he reveals that he is the Magic Emperor himself and a small anime cutscene will pop up. He transforms and then traps Quark in this flashy-like ball and then the ball falls off the cliff. Ghaleon then kidnaps Alex and then zaps Alex whom falls to the ground. After waking up, you will find yourself in your home. Your parents will come by and tell you that it was Laike whom saved you from the Dragon Cave. Go to Dragonmaster Dyne's monument to meet up with Laike. Or, before you go, go to the basement of your house and examine one of the bookshelves for Luna's Bromide. Afterwards, Laike will tell you a story about how Dragonmaster Dyne risked all for someone he loved and that's how he died. But, that doesn't discourage Alex but he gets encouranged. After Laike tells his story, he tells Alex to seek revenge and save Luna. Before leaving, Laike, gives Alex Dragonwings which he found in the Dragon Cave while rescuing Alex. This is a very useful tool. It allows you to venture from city to city without having to use boats etc and is much easier. After getting the Dragonwings, use them to go to Meribia. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 3 - Save Meribia! =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Gargoyles, Shadow Lord, Guardians, Items Found: None Boss: None Once you get to Meribia, you'll meet Jessica and she's in a bit of trouble. Quickly save before you fight, heal and then head off to Jessica. After meeting with Jessica, she'll tell you about how the monsters just suddenly came. If you want to level up, one good place to level up are the places with four gargoyles attacking at once. If you have flash cut, you might want to do so. They give 76 or so EXP per fight. Other than that, you can go and save Mel. Once you enter the mansion, head off to the battle arena area. You'll meet Mell there who is in a bit of trouble. Both Ghaleon and Xenobia are there. Unfortunately, Jessica attempts to save her father but she doesn't realize that Xenobia was about to turn her into stone. To save her daughter, Master Mel, jumps in front of Jessica and turns into stone. After Xenobia leaves, she attempts over and over to cure him with her spells but nothing works and come to the conclusion that the only way to beat the spell is to destroy Xenobia.. Jessica, whom is not feeling so good after this sadistic event decides not to be sad but to cheer up since after all, she is the daughter of Master Mell and must do all she can to seek revenge for what Xenobia has done. Afterwards, save and upgrade all the weapons and armor since you'll have to fight a boss later on. Next, use the Dragonwings to head to Vane. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 3 - Vane in trouble =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: None Items Found: None Boss: Vile Crustacean This boss isn't as easy as you think. Make sure you save _before_ you head to Vane. I unfortunately, forgot to save and had to restart all the way from meribia. Once you enter vane, you'll automatically have to fight the Vile Crustacean whom has attacked Vane but you find Mia and Nash unable to do anything because their magic has no effect so you immediately go to their aid. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 3 - Boss: Vile Crustacean =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= This boss is not as easy as you think.. Make sure Alex uses Vigor once and have him use Sword Dance.. as with all the other bosses. Have Nash use his lightning attack even though it does hardly any damage and have Mia use her ice attack.. not the blizzard attack but the other one. Nash's attack should do at least 18 damage, Mia's ice attack should do at least 18 damage and Alex should use his Sword Dance. Since Alex might run out of MP, make sure you have a few Starlights. Or, equip Alex with the Angel ring so if he happens to fall during battle, he'll rewake with full MP and HP. Equip the healing ring on someone else. Again, if Alex falls, you might as well just hit the reset button. After you beat this boss, go and talk to Lemia who is still recovering from wearing the mask too long. Anyways, she will tell you to go and find the other dragons and seek revenge on Ghaleon and Xenobia. After talking to Lemia, Nash and Mia will join your group along with Jessica. Now it's off to Nanza to get Jessica's "boyfriend" to join. :) =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 3 - Nanza =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Unlike before, you have to go south, instead of west. Anyways, once you get to Nanza, you will encounter Xenobia with a woman and demons. Xenobia threatens to attack the woman. Afterwards, a brief anime scene will pop up showing that the woman is kyle in disguise. Next, you'll have to fight the four demons with Kyle, but don't worry, they're easy.. Afterwards, Jessica talks to Kyle and tells him all about the dragons and the whole story. He then decides to join your party. Afterwards, head south until you hit Reza. After you pass through the approaching scenario, you can finally open up those red chests. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 3 - Reza / Meryod =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= When you get to Meryod, go in and someone will bump into Nall but actually that guy you bumped into stole you Dragonwings.. (this happened even when I gave my dragonwings to another character) Anyways, go up to the bar, and talk to the guy behind the counter. He'll explain how if you become a thief and join the guild, the thief who stole your dragonwings will have to return them. Anyhow, no one likes the idea but you have no choice. Afterwards when you're done exploring the town, go east to the forest and ignore Lluk for now and also if you try to go to the Damon Spire, you will be restricted from entering. If you want, you can go to the Althena Springs for a few brief anime scenes if you have soap. Anyways, once you head east, you will come up to Meryod Forest. The enemies here give off a fair amount of EXP.. somewhere around 200-270 EXP a fight. However, try and avoid the wasps or Killer Buzzes if you can since they have an attack called the Killer Sting which does around 88 damage and can sometimes instantly kill a character.. But don't worry, just have Alex use his flash cut and the enemies will be a piece of cake. Just proceed through the forest and you should be out pretty soon and come up to Meryod, a city that is built over water. Once you enter Meryod, a guy will tell you that there's an unstable bridge. Continue right, ignoring all the warnings and the bridge should collapse. You should end up by a house. Afterwards, go and meet the rest of your characters who are at the different locations. The last person you'll meet is Kyle who is in the bar. You'll find him talking with someone there and telling Kyle how to become a thief and join the thief's guild. He tells you about a Damon Spire which you will go to shortly. He'll hand over an old notebook which contains the password to enter the Damon Spire. When you're ready, upgrade your weapons, heal, save, then head back through the forest but, wait... Jessica sees Mel just standing there in the forest. When you get there, your characters will turn into stone except for Jessica. Once Kyle hears that Jessica is about to turn to stone, he uses his vast amount of strength and breaks free. Now, it'll be a 1 on 1 fight with.. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 3 - Boss: Plaster Mell =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= This boss is pretty easy. Well, I barely made it however. First off, use the power up skill that Kyle has. Each hit, Plaster Mell does is about 20 damage. After the power up, just continue to use his Power Slash attack on him. You should be able to finish him off before he depletes your HP but you won't get any EXP for this battle. Afterwards, you will discover that that's not Jessica's father but actually something that Royce conjured up. Anyways, Royce will get upset and just take off. Once you're out of the forest, directly south is a pagoda-like structure. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 3 - Damon Spire =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Mummy, Killer Roller, Bat Knight, Rufus Items Found: Starlight(4), Ice Pendant, Sage's Clothes, Spirit Bandana, Boss: None Once you enter, a guy there will tell you that only people with the password may enter this building. But, since you have the notebook with the password on it, you can enter. Once you enter, you'll have to step on a series of buttons.. or these red circles to open and close doors. Once you open the right amount of doors, you should have access to stairs which are south-west of the building. Before you go down, you will have to answer one question to proceed. The guy will ask a question about Althena and you get to choose who answers it. Although I don't know whether or not it would make a difference if you chose Mia or Nash, I chose Mia. The answer is Magic which Mia will say..so you don't have to worry about these questions.. Once you go up, beware. Some of the enemies down here are succeptable to physical attacks. Use Mia and Nash for the 2nd and 3rd floor and use physical attack for the 4th level so use Kyle and Alex. Once you finish pressing all the switches on this level go through the doors (which don't open automatically) and go up but before you do, you have to answer a question. For this question, have Nash answer it. After you're finished, head up. This part is short and doesn't require fighting that much unless you get all the chests. Once you reach the stairs, you'll see a guy in the floor, in pain. He'll of course, deny his pain at first but later on he'll say it hurts. Jessica doesn't believe it but persuade her to heal him. After you heal him, you pass the test and you can go. After, head to the next level. You won't have to do much fighting. Anyways, once at the end, Damon will come back and ask your weakest or most useless character to go. Just say no, you don't want any of your characters to leave and you'll pass the test. On the next floor, you'll see a hunk of clay. Damon will ask you to mould something beautiful out of the clay. You must then choose someone to come up with an idea. Have Alex choose the idea. Alex will choose to mould Luna but everyone thinks it's Althena. Once at the top, talk to Damon. He will hand you a paper which you will use to get into the guild. Read the books then head back down and also collect all the chests that you missed along the way. There are some useful equipment in this tower. Now, you can either go back to Meryod to talk to the guy in the bar and hear a girl sing horribly :) or head to Reza. Talk to the guy behind the bar and he will give you the Thief's Crest and grant you access to the Thieves Guild. Do so and head down the hall then go up and you should end up in a place with a bunch of people. Talk to the guy in the upper right corner and he will give you your Dragon Wings back and for the trouble he's caused, he'll throw in a soap. After getting your Dragon Wings back, upgrade all your weapons and armor. You won't be able to use your Dragon Wings just yet. As you're about to leave, you will see Lily being abducted by Xenobia. Her Grandfather will try and come in to help her but it's too late. Nothing can be done. You wonder why the Vile Tribe is abducting all the beautiful singers. After, you discover that she will be at the Red Dragon's cave next. However, you can't go there. You will need some sort of transportation. Anyways, Lily's grandfather will lead you back into the area where you got your Dragon Wings back and a guy there will give you you blueprints which you'll need to build an hot air balloon. Now you have access to your Dragon Wings. Use them to head to Lluk if you've visited there before or else you'll have to go by foot. Go into a house to the north and hand the inventor your blueprints. He'll tell you that he requires a fluffy bug and you decide to help him out while he's building the balloon. Firstly, go down the stairs by the woman and the vegetables. Once downstairs, talk to the guy. He'll open the doors to Lluk field, where you're able to find the fluffy bug. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 3 - Lluk Field =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Puffy Bug, Fluffy Bug, Fly Devils, Man Eaters Items Found: Spooky Hairpin, Heal Ring, Crystal Bracelet, Silver Boss: None You'll want to level up here. You can get about 630EXP by fighting a group of Man Eaters (5) and it shouldn't be too tough if Alex has flash cut. So you can level here and whenever you need to refresh yourselves, just go back to Lluk to the Althena statue. Anyways, you can travel all over by using these spring like devices in the ground that will launch you over small ponds. If you attempt to go and fight any of those "bugs" then you won't be able to catch any fluffy bugs because they'll just flee from the battle. Anyways, to catch one, go to the very upper left field and a bug there will just look in different directions but it's not moving. During the battle, the bug will flee but don't worry. Finish off the rest of the bugs and after you've finished the battle, then Kyle will go and catch the bug that left the battle. When you're ready, head back to the inventor and hand him the bug. He will tell you that you'll have to stay overnight for the balloon to be ready. In the morning, the balloon looks flimsy and won't work but Nall will accidentilly bump into it and will pop back up into shape. :) Anyways, the inventor will ask you whether or not you want to go. If you're ready then go but I'll warn you, save first or you won't be able to head back. Make sure that you upgrade all your weapons and armor first at the Thieves Guild which has the most powerful weaponry. Anyways, after you're ready, head into the balloon and you'll slowly descend into the volanic area. If you however want to do something else for now, you can head to the Althena Springs :) =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 3 - Althena Springs =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Well, this is just something you can do in your spare time. Make sure you have soap and save before you go in. There are two springs, one for men and one for females but despite all the rumors, there aren't any unisex springs. For now, the only one available is the Men's spring. Don't go to the Women's spring yet as the enemies surrounding it can kill you with a single blow. As I said before, save first. There are two cinemas at each spring so if you didn't buy enough soap on the boat to Meribia than just save, watch the two cinemas and reload from where you saved and you will have watched the cinemas and yet have the soap. Anyways, nothing at the Men's spring except for a few brief cinemas and a digitally sensored picture of Kyle's butt *grumble* >: So if you're ready, head off to the Red Dragon Cave. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 3 - Red Dragon Cave =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Blood Slime, Burner, Scorpion, Fire Elemental Items Found: Flame Sword, 5000 & 1000 Silver, Angel Ring, Rainbow Tiara, Starlights(8), Barrier Ring Boss: Dogs Make sure you saved "before" you came here or else if you saved in the volcano and you don't think you'll make it then you're toast. You can't use the dragonwings nor can you take the balloon back. Anyways, have two save games. Try to avoid fire attacks since this is a volcano and fire magic won't be much use here. Try and use ice attacks. Mia's ice attacks are pretty good. Have Jessica use regular attacks or if she has the Ice weapon, use the weapon's ability by going into the items menu and choosing that weapon. Anyways, the weapons that you bought in the Thieves Guild are really useful here since they work well against fire-type enemies. I was at level 25 when I entered the cave and it was pretty hard. I found the enemies doing attacks, excess of 70 damage per hit so I fled from quite a few battles. Anyways, make sure you bring a few healing nuts and make sure everyone has a star light. If you want to be sure that you won't perish during this battle or something, then go and level up a bit. By the way, just to remind you, running away from Burners, those enemies that have this white flame around their hands and grunt whenever you get close, is very difficult because they're fast. Try and conserve MP in here but don't worry about Mia since she has alot and have Nash just use regular lightning attacks or regular attacks if you want to conserve his MP also which isn't that necessary. Anyways, you might want to level up in this cave but try not to waste too much MP, especially with Alex. You should try and collect as many items as you can such as the Barrier Ring and especially the Flame Sword which will be useful in "another" cave since this is a fire cave so just stick to ice based weapons. Sooner or later, after you've explored for a bit, you'll come to a long strip with fire. Make sure you're ready.. Save, equip starlights on characters etc.. then make your way through the flames but you'll encounter two enemies along the way so if you want, you can run from the battle. Anyways, you'll have one last chance to save right at the exit of the firey path.. Well after getting out, don't go too far up or your battle will start. The fire will cause minimal HP loss. After you're ready, go up to the two statues. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 3 - Boss: 2 Bronze Dogs =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= There are two dogs to fight in this stage so be prepared... Concentrate at one enemy at a time. Going for both at a time will take longer and it's better to have one enemy going after than two. Anyways, have Alex, as with every other boss in the game, use vigor, or not, depending on whether or not you want to conserve MP, and have him use sword dance the rest of the time. Have Kyle, use power up, and then have him use Power Slash. Have Mia using ice wall, Jessica healing the party, or using her ice weapon's ability, and have Nash use Thunder Thrust or just regular based attacks since he's pretty much useless. If you need to, refill Alex if he runs out of MP. By the way, if Jessica doesn't have to heal, then have her use her ice weapon since each blow can cause around 70-140 damage. Anyways, if you're at level 26-27 during the game, each dog should have around 2835 HP each. Well, it's not that hard. The dogs have three attacks. One attack is shooting fireballs a few times at one person which causes around 80 damage, another attack, where the dog goes around hitting everyone which causes around 30-60 damage each, and a third attack where the dog goes around hitting one person, then another each causing around 30-40 damage. Afterwards, Royce gets upset and leaves again.. Once you're ready, proceed and go and pay a visit to the Red Dragon. You'll receive a Dragon Shield for your hard trouble. Once you're done, use a warp or head back to the entrance of the cave and use the balloon to head back but there seems to be a leak in the balloon *gasp* as you're trying to head back but Nash tries to take control and a brief anime scene will pop up. Afterwards, you'll crash near Reza. After you arrive at Reza, you'll encounter Laike who will talk to you a bit and just see how everything is going and congratulate you and then tell you to head east and go to the Blue Dragon's Cave. Once you're ready, head to Meryod and upgrade everything. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 4 - Meryod / Lyton =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Once you reach Meryod, you'll notice something. The bridge is fixed! :) Anyways, you won't need to stay in Meryod for long. Go and upgrade some weapons and then go east past the bridge and travel into a new continent. Anyways, head north ignoring the forest to the east and you should sooner or later arrive at Lyton. Lyton is a town that used to be built upon wonderful and cheerful music, but however, one day, that all changed and the music has turned from good to horrible. Of course, you and your group will go to the rescue and help. *sigh* You'll definitely want to upgrade everything and heal. If you don't have enough money, later, you'll be able to go and fight. Once you enter Lyton, go and pay a visit to this person who resides in the north part of the city. He'll explain what's going on and why the music is so horrible and that the way the spirits play the music has changed. Later, he'll tell you to go and investigate in the Lyton Shrine about what's happening and you oblige. Anyways, he'll tell you that you need to change the tune. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 4 - Lyton Shrine =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= This isn't such a hard part of the game. My characters are at about level 27 and it's not that hard. For the most part, the enemies are pretty easy. Once you get to the second floor, the enemies here give 700 or so EXP and a good place to level up if you want but if you don't want to, then just continue. As you advance, the enemies will become tougher and tougher. Don't worry about losing too much MP since I didn't have to use a single starlight. Once you reach the third floor, you'll notice that the only other stairs lead up. Don't worry, there aren't any stairs that lead down. Once back up to the second floor, avoid all the cracks and go to the end to the stairs down. However, the cracks aren't that bad if you're on the second floor as they will bring you down a floor. By the way, on the third floor, some of the enemies give off 1000 EXP. Make sure you have flash cut or some powerful attack ready though. Anyways, at the bottom, there are four holes and two rocks. To crack the combination, move the rock on the left side to the very left hole and move the rock on the right side to the very right. After that, you should be able to crack the combination. Afterwards, the music will become a more, "happier" tune. You can go back by using Jessica's Escape magic or just walk back if you want to gain some more levels. Once you get back to Lyton, the people will be happy once again and the festival can now take place. Also, you'll learn that you can now access the Blue Dragon's cave which is in the north part of the continent under the water and accessable through Lyton. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 4 - Althena Springs (women) =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= If you wanted to know why I said not to stop at the forest to the east is because it's the Forbidden Forest. Don't go in there. If you must know, it's because the enemies in there are insanely difficult and your whole party might die within one battle. If you're wondering why the programmers made it so hard is because this forest leads to the women's Althena Springs. :) And if you have soap, you'll be treated to a few clips. Anyways, just continue on with the journey now and come back after you finish the blue dragon's cave. But I have to warn you, that even at level 40, the enemies can still be pretty strong and you might not even make it. My suggestion is to either use Alex's Dragon Grief magic or just make a run for it during every battle. If you're going to run, have one character run at a time instead of all at once because then if one person makes it out, and the rest die, then you'll still be able to run. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 4 - Blue Dragon's Cave =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Water Elemental, Aqua Genie, Razor Wolf, Gelatin Items Found: Dragon Armlet, 5000 Silver, Chira's Tail, Ruby Tiara, Angel Tear, Jewel Bracelet, Boss: None! Recommended Level: 29 Guess what?! There's no boss! *phew* Anyways, I was at level 29 when I finished this cave. It's not too hard when you have the right idea on what to do. Some of the enemies deal quite a bit of damage. Anyways, once you go north through Lyton, to the lake, you'll remember that it takes two who are in love to enter the shrine, or the Blue Dragon's Cave. If you want to hear something funny, then ask Kyle and Jessica, then Nash and Mia to sing first :) Anyways, once they finish singing, go to the little edge and you will start playing your ocarina. At the jail in which Luna is encased in, Luna starts to sing. Soon, all the girls in the cell start to sing and then Xenobia, Phacia and Royce come in. They have a small chit chat and then the sequence continues with Magic Emperor Ghaleon talking. Then, the Blue Dragon's Cave arises beneath the river. If you're below level 29, 28, try and level up a bit first. Actually, at level 29, I accidentilly beat the cave when I all I was trying to do was leveling up. :P Anyways, the enemies give off between 600 to 1280 EXP each but at level 29-30, you probably can't get higher than that without spending a lot of time in the cave. The level is basically just a bunch of warps. It's pretty obvious which warps you'll have to go through. Anyways, if you go through the wrong warps, you'll have to face Water Elementals. Anyways, just go through the warps and once you go through the second warp, you'll see a warp beside the one you just got out. Ignore that one. Just level up a bit. The next warp is the top left one. Well I sort of guessed. Usually the warp is the last or the second last one. Just continue for a bit, and you'll know that you're coming close to the last area when you come to a place with 6 - 8 warps lined up. The warp is the second last one. Afterwards, pick up the Dragon Armlet (As well as all the other ones such as the Ruby Tiara). Enter the room, and you'll meet the Blue Dragon. He turns out to talk even more than Nall :) Anyways, once he opens up the room to the Dragon Helmet, go and get it. A sadistic sequence will follow. As you head back, the Blue Dragon will have been taken over by the Vile Tribe. Phacia, appears and tells you to head back before Luna gets hurt. For some reason, I think Phacia is actually a nice person. Hm.. Anyways, the Blue Dragon will tell you to go and become a Dragonmaster before it's too late. He hints on something about Luna, singing the song that only Althena sings.. I won't spoil it.. yet :) Afterwards, if you've missed a few items, just backtrack and get them or if you're in a rush, just use Jessica's escape magic so that you can just zip back to the entrance and head back to Lyton. Basically, the warps can only be found if you guess so if you're running low on HP or MP, just save first and then go into a warp. Also, the rule of thumb to beating these monsters is to have Alex, use Flash Cut whenever there's a lot of enemies in the battle, have Kyle use regular attacks or have him use his Sonic Riser attack. Have Jessica use regular attacks, Mia, fire attacks and Nash, thunder thrust. If you're low on HP, just refill Nash's since his Thunder Thrust can deal quite a bit of damage. Around 200 to each character at level 29. Then, Alex should be able to take out each character with 1 or 2 hits at level 29. Just one more cave and you're a full fledged Dragonmaster. :) =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 4 - Tamur =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Great Hornet, Octo Plant, Shrieker, Items Found: Starlight, Wind Cane, Chira's Tail, Angel Tear, Healing Nut Boss: 7 Dark Sorcerors, 4 Caparace Knights Recommended Level: 30 Once you leave Lyton, head along the east coast until you see a village on the right side and a small passage way in the overworld map. Head into the area. This is another area like Nanza except it's easy. Once you get into Tamur Pass, just follow the trail and ignore the signs because they'll totally screw up the direction you're going in. For example it would say to go south but actually, you would need to head east. Just something to keep in mind. The enemies here aren't tough. Just use your regular technique but make sure Alex has enough MP to execute two Flash Cuts. Once you reach the end, you'll encounter Xenobia who summons a few monsters whom you'll have to fight and are very easy. I wonder why she would summon such weak monsters if she hated Alex so much. Hm.. Ah well.. Anyways, this is another easy match. Just use your regular tactics. Have Alex use flash cut, Jessica use regular attacks, Kyle use his Sonic Riser attack and have Mia use Ice Wall magic. The enemies should perish within one battle before Mia is able to cast her magic. After you finish the first set, you'll have to fight another set of enemies. Just use the same attacks as before. When you beat them, she'll summon even more monsters but luckily, two mysterious people, (Tempest and Fresca) show up. With a blink of an eye, Tempest launches arrows at the enemies and poof, they get destroyed. Then, Xenobia gets upset and leaves. If you haven't, go back and collect the items or just continue up ahead to Tamur. There's nothing really much at Tamur except for their famous water I guess. The weapons here are pretty good and so is the armor. Upgrade all the weapons and armor as possible but it costs a lot though so if you don't have enough, just go back and get more money. This town is pretty dull asides from a few people complaining about the monsters in Myght's tower or the Vile Tribe. At anyrate, save and exit through the nort exit of Tamur. You should encounter Laike who is there. He will tell you about Myght and says that you can acquire valuable information from him. However, only you and Laike can go and no one else. Anyways, you can either go or wait a bit. Either way, you'll have to go, without your characters to help you out. Don't worry though, Laike is one of thee best characters in the game and powerful too. If, however, you decide to go and level up or get better weapons, decline and you'll be able to find him at the Tamur Bar. So, go there once you're ready, leave Tamur and head north to Myght's Tower. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 4 - Myght's Tower =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Plasma Prism, Magic Hat, Tormentor, Mecha Star Items Found: Barrier Ring, Silver 500, Silverlight Boss: None Just to let you know, Magic Hats can only be attacked with magic so just be cautious. This is a "really" easy battle.. Well it wouldn't be so easy without Laike. Anyways, with Laike by yourside, you can just have Alex sit back and watch Laike do all the work. Once you get to the tower, and go up the first flight of stairs, you'll notice that there are four doors, each with symbols on them. A lot of people have had trouble with this so here's the solution: ::Planet, Star, Sun and then Moon:: Afterwards, you'll end up in a room with a series of elevators and rooms. If you want to get all the items then I suggest that you look around on the different floors. You won't get many levels here. Anyways, take the first elevator you see, up two floors. Go through there, and fight all the enemies, and collect the chests along the way. Continue going through the different maze-like rooms and you should, sooner or later end up in Myght's laboratory. Talk to Myght and he'll decide to make you your airship. Laike will then stay and tell you that you can go back. Head through the left door in Myght's room and you'll go straigt back to the beginning. After you get down, head back to Tamur. Once you get to Tamur, go to the bar and talk to the characters. After you had a talk with them, Nash will come up and tell you that there's someone being hanged and also, the people you met earlier in Lyton Pass are there. Head to the northern exit area and you'll see a man getting hanged because he was going around selling fake medicine and therefore, Tempest wants to execute him. But, you stop him and Tempest gets upset and calls you a coward. To prove that you are a true warrior, he challenges you to a match and you accept. Just make sure you healed at the Althena Statue first before encountering Tempest. Anyways, after introducing who they are and why they're doing this, accept his offer for a battle. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 4 - Boss: Tempest =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= I don't know why I even bother putting Tempest down as boss. He's such a simple contendor. The trick is to have Alex wear a healing ring and you should be able to heal at least 80% of the damage he causes to you. Just use vigor once and hack at him with Sword Dance afterwards. This should be a _very_ easy match and you should be able to finish him off within a few rounds. After you win, he'll hand over a Dragon Necklace which Alex is reluctant to accept because it means a great deal to Tempest. Nevertheless, you can't return it since Tempest and Fresca leave promptly, and impressed with Alex's abilities as a warrior. After, your group suggests that you should go and pay Tempest and Fresca a visit to find out more about how to get to the Black Dragon's Cave. You obligingly go for the village of Pao. From Tamur, head south, to the Lost Forest. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 4 - Lost Woods / Pao =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Wasp, Ambush, Killer Shroom, Yeti Items Found: Dark Sheild, Holy Hairpin, Chira's Tail, Silverlight, Star Bracelet, Healing Nut Boss: None Recommended Level: 30 The enemies shouldn't post to be too much of a threat but some of them do, deal a fair amount of damage. Anyways, some of the enemies, such as the Yeti are pretty avoidable however, the wasps aren't. Just continue through the forest, and shortly, you should come up to a clearing. You notice that this could be meant to be a camp area or something for wandering travellers. You decide to continue on. Head south for a little bit and you should come up to two trees, colored slightly brighter than the other trees. Kyle senses that the exit is near but you can do nothing. Head back up and Kyle will want to take a break. You decide to do so. During the night, Alex has a pretty depressing dream about Luna, and wakes up to find two villagers from Pao or the Prairie Village. Anyways, they first think that you are enemies but then notice the Dragon Necklace and realizes that Tempest would only give that to his friends. Follow them down to the two trees and they should open them up with a song. Afterwards, you can either do one of two things. Go back to collect some of the good items or you can just leave. It's up to you but some of the items are pretty good. Once on the world map, de-equip Jessica and Mia and give their equipment to Nall. You'll see why in a second. Save, then go south to the village of Pao, by the monument. Once you go in, go to Tempest and Fresca's tent. Their's is the largest there. Once you enter, you encounter Tempest. He tells you that Fresca has gone out seeking where the evil voice is coming from. You wonder what he's talking about until you yourselves hear it. Shortly after, Jessica and Mia are affected and faint.. *sigh* Fresca will come back telling that the voice is coming from the Black Dragon's Cave. Tempest will tell you to join him as he cannot do it alone. He rushes towards the cave. Head east and talk to the guard. He will tell you to get permission from the Elder first. Head to the tent, left of the cave and a guard there should tell you that it's the Elder's tent. Enter and the he'll grant you permission to the cave. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 4 - Black Dragon's Cave =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Nipple Yanker, Hell Raiser, Slice O Dead, Chaos Fiend, Items Found: Silverlight(2), Bow-?, Angel Ring, Dragon Bandana, Dragon Armor, MP Drain Chests(2), Dragon Wings Boss: Black Dragon Recommended Level: 32-34 I finished the cave at level 31 but I also a few healing nuts on the way too :P Anyways, this isn't such a long cave, but make sure you have a few Starlights but then again, I was able to go through the cave without using much magic. At any rate, I have to warn you, there's a few chests in the cave that suck a lot of your MP. But, again, if you have enough starlights, then you should definitely go and collect everything in the chests. Some of the enemies do, do a lot of damage, but I was able to use regular attacks. Make sure you equip healing rings on your characters. Once you reach the second floor, you should encounter Tempest who's waiting for you. He'll be at the same level as Alex. There are a total of three floors I believe. Once you reach the third floor, Nall should say he heard a deep voice. Then suddenly, the Black Dragon will appear. He will just chat for a bit telling you he heard about you and that you are destined to be the next Dragonmaster. However, he is only there in spirit. He hands over the Dragon Armor and tells you to destroy his actual body, before Ghaleon can manipulate it. Equip it the Dragon Armor, then save. You don't need to heal since your MP and HP will be fully restored before you fight the next boss. After you've saved, head up. By the way, make sure every character has at least two healing nuts and a Starlight. Collect the Dragonwings to the right and head up. You'll find out that Luna was the mysterious songstress this whole time. Tempest wants to go and attack her while she's still vulnerable but Alex prevents him from doing so. Luna doesn't recognize him. She continues to sing, then suddenly, Alex takes out his Ocarina and starts to play. Luna will slightly remember who you are, then Ghaleon will appear and again, manipulate her. She will then sing a song that will paralyze you, and your group. Your group is now paralyzed and the Black Dragon is attacking. Don't worry, your group won't die. Alex keeps on fighting, trying to save Luna, but nothing works, and Alex becomes a Dragonmaster! Afterwards, you'll see a pretty cool anime scene. The Dragonmaster outfit doesn't look that good to me.. Ah well. Anyways, you'll have to face... =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 4 - Boss: Black Dragon =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= When you first start this boss, you'll notice that your MP, as well as your HP are restored. :) I found the boss to be pretty easy, considering the fact, that I forgot to equip my characters with any form of healing or magic restoration items, and the fact that all my characters were down except for Alex. Basically, I beat him with only Alex. Anyways, just use the same regular technique that you used for all the other bosses. Have Alex use vigor once, then afterwards, use sword dance. Have Kyle use his power up technique, then use Power Slash. Afterwards, have Tempest use regular attacks or Flash Arrow, then have Nash use his Thunder Thrust technique but if you leveled your characters up to level 34, then Nash should have Thunderbolt which he should use instead. Make sure you have some sort of healing item in everyone's inventory. I barely made it out. One more hit and Alex could have been down and I wouldn't have one. Alex's attacks should be able to do 500 damage, give or take 10-20 damage. Kyle's attacks should be able to do 250 damage and everyone else's attacks will do about 90-150 damage. Keep in mind that you don't have a healer. You shouldn't need to worry about MP that much. You should get 22000 EXP for your trouble. Afterwards, Ghaleon will laugh at your pitiful attempt at trying to rescue Luna. He'll summon the Black Dragon. You won't have to fight him, thankfully. :) He'll hop onto the dragon with Luna and tell you to meet him in the frontier. If you want, you can head back down, and collect all the chests. Otherwise, use the Dragonfly Wings you found in the chestbox before you entered the battle with the Black Dragon and warp back to the beginning. Anyways, once you go back to Pao, go to Tempest's tent. When you enter, they're all cured. :) Anyways, they're just glad to see you alive. After a few minutes, Laike will enter Tempest's tent. He'll tell you to go and see Myght to see how he's progressing on the airship. Use the Dragonwing item to warp to Myght's tower. After you talk with myght, he'll tell you that you'll have to wait until morning. Go around and talk to the different characters. They'll just chat while you just listen on to their personal conversations. :) After you wake up next morning, Nash will be even more agitated and worried about going than before. De-equip Nash before continuing on. Once you get to the top, Nash, admits that he actually is working for Ghaleon and has been informing him of all the moves you have been taking. Everyone snaps at him but nothing can be done. He uses a lightning attack and the ship's engine gets damaged. He swears he does it out of his own good will because he can't see Mia get hurt. He knows that you probably won't win against Ghaleon and doesn't want you travelling to the frontier. Of course, everyone else is worried about this too but Nash is worried about Mia the most. Royce then appears and congratulates him on what he's done. He then parts with Royce. Your party literally wants to rip out his throat but Mia, however knows what Nash did, actually might have been out of his own good will. Now, with the engine damaged, your group still wants to go to the Frontier but Myght said it would take quite a while to get a new engine. One of your group members mentions the engine from the air balloon but Myght is against anyone else's work but you still go. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 4 - The Betrayal =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Head to Reza using the DragonWings. First talk to the guy at the Bar. After, go to the Thieve's Bazaar and talk to the guy standing by the balloon. He'll give you the engine at no extra charge. Or you can just talk to the guy by the balloon without talking to the guy at the bar and pay for it. :P After you retrieved the engine, you can get the rememberiser from Ramus. It allows you to watch all the previous movies from the game using the item. Pretty spiffy item :) But, if you wait until after you go to the frontier, the item will no longer be in stock. So, get the item _before_ you leave. Once you decide to carry on, go back to Myght's tower and he'll install it. Now, you can enter the airship, and finally beat Ghaleon! Well, sort of. Anyways, right after you board the ship, you will have finished Disk 1!! The next part of the game contains some pretty difficult bosses. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Disk 2: Walkthrough Part 5 - Talon =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Just to warn you.. Once you arrive at the Frontier, you won't be able to use the Dragonwings to warp back so be ready before you go. Once you board the airship, you'll all say your humble goodbyes to everyone. As you fly over the Frontier, Mia notices the desolate areas and no trees or plants. Sooner or later, you'll see a tower like structure. A brief anime cutscene will pop up. Soon after, Jessica attempts to stear the ship into the tower but fails to do so as there is some sort of sheild around there preventing you from entering. Anyways, Jessica attempts to go in again but fails to do so. Your group gives up and you end up going to the small town of Talon. When you enter Talon, you'll notice that it's pretty small, but soon, you'll notice that it's actually a vast network of hallways and stairs. The people.. (Are they people?) here are pretty disgruntled. Especially since they were banned there by Althena. Anyways, they show a some sort of resentment towards humans. Anyways, you discover that this is just a mining town. The people here are mining ore for Ghaleon in hopes for a better life which Ghaleon promised them. Some are losing their lives while others are working strenuously and many are unhappy with the working conditions. Just explore around. Stop by the inn (with the weapon shop sign) and he'll heal you for free. Or, head north and you'll find a few more areas. After you've done talking to all the people and seeing everything that you want, head north and you should arrive at the Talon Mines. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Disk 2: Walkthrough Part 5 - Talon Mines =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Groper, Rock Biter, Stalker, Mecha Tank, Items Found: Holy Robe, Angel's Tear, Fire Tiara, Silverlight(2), Refresh Ring, Hell Armlet, Devil Pendant, Healing Nut(3) Boss: Shadow Spectre Recommended Level: 34-35 The enemies here aren't too difficult but you'll probably be healing a lot. This area is kind of confusing. I kept on forgetting whether or not I had already visited one area. Anyways, conserve some MP at first, but you don't really have to since you'll encounter a Goddess Statue later on in the mine. Just go around to the different areas and collecting as many chests as you can. The enemies here give around 2200 EXP each. Anyways, continue on. About half way through the mine, you should come to a room with a few miners who are pretty depressed and hate their jobs. Just continue on and a minor earthquake will have stirred up. Quickly, go back and you'll find a miner trapped in a pile of rubble. Talk to the guy on the left and then your party will promptly go and save him. Once the miner gets out, some guards will come and inspect your work. They soon realize that you aren't miners.. but humans. You'll have to battle them. This is no biggie. It's about the same as if you were going to go into a random battle. There are a few gropers and stalkers. Just use your regular, Flash Cut, Regular attack, Blizzard / Ice Wall combo. They should go down pretty easily. After that battle, as you leave, Phacia will appear. She senses that humans have good intentions and have been misconceived as being horrendous people by the Vile Tribe. She is beginning to change sides. As you continue on, collect the chests and you should soon come up to a graveyard. Right in the middle is a Goddess statue. Your group wonders why there is a Goddess statue and the miner explains how they must, even out of their hatred and resentment towards Althena, worship a part of her to stay alive. Afterwards, if you haven't, go back down for the chest, by the water. Then, head back north. Save, then go up and you should see Xenobia. Once you go into the room, the lights go out. Soon after, the lights will turn back on and Mia and Jessica just happen to be in her pocession. She commands you that Alex and Kyle fight. Anyways, during the battle, nothing can be done. You deal 0 damage and vice versa. Anyways, after 3-5 rounds, Xenobia becomes restless and ends the battle. She says that she will execute Jessica and Mia if nothing is done. Kyle, and his egostical nature, pretend that he doesn't care about Jessica anymore. Then, as Xenobia is distracted, Mia and Jessica escape. Xenobia, once again, upset, summons the Shadow Spectre to attack you while she flees. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 5 - Boss: Shadow Spectre =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= This boss isn't too terribly difficult. The only major attacks that he has are his regular attacks, which cause about 60 to 80 damage each hit. He can hit three times per regular attack. His other attack deals about 80 damage to each character at level 35. Anyways, you should have Alex use Vigor the first round, then sword dance. Have Mia use her power-up technique on both Kyle and Alex once, then have Kyle use his Power Slash technique. Jessica should use Althena Litany during the first round. Then, she should either use Calm / Heal Litany or use regular attacks. Mia, after powering up Kyle and Alex should use the flame bomb attack which deals about 115 damage. He won't be that problematic, but one of his attacks can mute a character for a few rounds. I got about 25000 EXP for this battle. At any rate, once you beat him, go back to heal, then, head through the exit and you should be inside the bubble dome which you were restricted from entering earlier on with your airship. Anyways, go to the egg like structure. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 5 - Cadin =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= If you attempt to go to the tower (Ruids) first then you won't be able to open the door. At any rate, head towards the egg-like structure. There aren't any enemies here so just keep on going until you see an Althena statue with the mine worker you saved. The miner will then transform into Phacia. At first you are reluctant that she is there in peace and draw out your weapons, but she explains why ironically, even though they hate Althena for banning them, they must be accepted back by Althena. She says that life cannot exist without Althena and slowly the Vile Tribe will wither away. She believes that humans, such as Alex are good people and therefore she doesn't want to work with her sisters much longer. Afterwards, you have a choice of whether or not you want to trust her. Say you'll trust her and she will tell you the password to enter the ruids. The password is "green earth". Anyways, she tells you how only a select few knows this password and bids you farewell. Heal at the statue if you need to then head to the ruids, which is the tower up north. Once you get there, Jessica will go to the door and say the password which will then open up the door. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 5 - Ruids =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Enemies: Flash Lord, Master Mirror, Devastator, Mecha Tank? Items Found: Tri-Ring, Silverlight(2), Dark Mace, Healing Nut, Fire Armlet, Tri-Ring, Star Light, Fortune Ring, Boss: Magic Masher There's one good thing about the Ruids. The good thing is, is that if you leave the Ruids to go heal in Cadin, the enemies won't respawn. Whew :) Anyways.. The Ruids isn't that tough of a place. As long as you use magic, you should be fine, although I didn't have to use much magic. I was able to complete the most part of it just having my group except Mia use regular attacks. Along the way, just collect some items. You might want to level up a bit here since some of the enemies can give off as much as 5200 EXP. Anyways, just go back to the egg to heal and restore your Magic Points. The enemies are pretty hard to avoid. The Flash Lords are capable of teleporting out of a room and right in front of you but they nore a threat or anything. There's about 5-6 levels. The top two-three levels are very short, meaning, that they're just one hallway and stairs that go up. Make sure that you collect the treasure because some of them are pretty good. Once you're on the 5th or 6th floor, save. Then head up the final set of stairs. You should see a fancy entrance. If you haven't yet, heal, then save, or go back to the statue and save. Once you get in, you'll encounter Taben. He's an evil inventor, currently working on the Grindery. He'll taunt at you, then summon his "latest creation", the Magic Masher, otherwise known as Nash in a giant chicken suit. :) He comes out, senseless, and starts using a lightning attacks but avoids hitting Mia. He doesn't want Mia to go and fight Ghaleon and thinks that by destroying Alex, Mia won't go. Mia then slaps Nash in the face and tells him that it's her that chooses to go. Woo go Mia! :) Afterwards, Nash humbly apologizes to the group and says he won't attack them anymore, but it's too late. Taben has the remote control for the Magic Masher. Nash desperately tries to stop what his "suit" is doing but he can't. You'll now face... =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 5 - Boss: Magic Masher =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= This boss can either be moderately difficult or very easy depending on his attacks. When Nash uses his regular attacks, they will deal, about, oh, somewhere around 1 hp damage each hit. :) However, he only uses that about one quarter to one half of the time. The rest of the time, he either uses his regular lightning attack, the thunder thrust or thunderbolt. Unfortunately, the thunder thrust attack can deal a lot of damage but you can probably heal the damage with the other attacks. The thunder thrust did about 80-120 damage to each of my characters. As with most of the other battles.. Have Alex power up, then use his sword dance technique. Have Mia power both Alex and Kyle up, then use the flame bomb attack. Jessica should first cast Althena Litany, then use calm litany or heal litany when necessary. If your characters fall below 90 HP, have Jessica heal them immediately because one thunder thrust attack will kill them. I didn't heal and the only person left was Alex. Surprisingly, I beat the boss with 3MP and 40HP left. One more round and Alex would've fainted so heal. He's not all that hard. I would probably say that he's easier than the Shadow Spectre, overall. After you finish fighting him, Taben runs off to the control panel in the Grindery to start it up. You quickly chase after him. After approaching him, Ghaleon will show up. He'll laugh at your pitiful attempt to stop him. Then, the gate shuts and the Grindery starts up. A large earthquake shakes up everything and the building starts to collapse. You will then see a pretty cool cutscene of the Grindery leaving from the area. After you watch the movie, someone will suggest that you go back to the airship. Quickly go down to the second floor and exit from the main entrance which is now open. This time, however, you won't have to go through the Talon Mines. You can just exit from the crater because the Grindery has broken off a chunk of the edge. Quickly, run towards your airship. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 5 - Vane VS the Grindery =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= As the ship leaves, you notice that the Grindery is moving at a very slow pace. Your group suggests to Jessica to try and land on the monstrosity while they can. As Jessica tries to land on it, the ship bounces back. Unfortunetly, there is a barrier surrounding it. You then notice that the Grindery is heading towards an unfortunate target, Vane. But, Mia knows what to do but has no time to explain it and tells Jessica to head to Vane as fast as possible. Once in Vane, you'll be in the Grand Hall, talking to Lemia Ausa. Mia tells her mother about the Grindery and tells her about using the Silver Spire. Before going, Lemia tells Alex to retrieve Nash, despite all the damage he's caused. Go to the classroom on the right side of the guild first and talk to the student. He'll tell you that he's preparing and gives you Mia's Bromide 2. When you're ready, head towards the teleporter and talk to Nash. Once Nash has rejoined your group, head towards the Silver Spire, which is the door to the left of the hall that is grey. You'll meet the rest of your party then enter. Anyways, go down the stairs and you'll come into a chamber. Mia will cast a spell and you'll end up in a bigger chamber with a view of outside. She asks everyone to channel their energy as she tries to gather it. Slowly, the Grindery rumbles towards Vane then it comes to a sudden halt. An anime scene commences. A circle will appear around Vane and Althena's Shrine with symbols while the Grindery's weapons raise. Suddenly, a burst from the Grindery shoots out while a burst from Vane goes towards the Grindery and then they pass through each other. Vane gets struck from the sky and tumbles down but don't worry. Throughout all the blasting, the Grindery does sustain minimal damage. Well, enough damage to remove the barrier around the Grindery. Unfortunately, Vane gets shot down and has lost all the magic that Vane once used to be. You will be unable to leave the Silver Spire through the door so you'll have to use your Dragonwings to teleport out. Go wherever you want. Right now, you'll be able to do whatever you want. If you want to go and collect the two other secret items, go to Lily, in Reza, by the Thieve's Guild, and talk to her three times. For the other one, go talk to Damon a few times and he'll give you a secret items. The other items have to have been obtained _before_ you went to the Frontier. *sigh*. Once ready, you can approach the giant monstrosity, the Grindery. I'll warn you though.. Once you enter the Grindery, there's no turning back. If you feel that you can't win the battle, or just to be safe, save in a separate file, then head towards the Grindery which is close to where Vane crashed by Althena's Shrine. Before you go though, make sure to level up a lot. I would say that somewhere between level 40-42 is sufficient enough to beat the Grindery. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Walkthrough Part 5 - The "very long" Grindery =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= I'll finish this section up pretty soon. I might even get the whole walkthrough done soon. :) So check back in a day or so. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Main Characters =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Alex: Alex is the hero of the game. He wields the power of a natural born hero and the heart of Dragonmaster Dyne. He too wants to be just like his idol. Alex is a great character. He's very powerful and can inflict a lot of damage as well as his useful magic attacks which you'll have to rely on in order to beat the game. Weapon of Choice: Sword Magic Type: Sword Technique =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Luna: Luna is Alex's friend who is under the care of Alex's parents. She has greaty magic, mainly healing, attacks but a weak physical attacker. Keep her in the back. She doesn't stay in your party for the whole game however. Weapon of Choice: Bow Magic Type: Healing =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Nash: Nash is a very good magic user with some pretty powerful attacks. He's the 3rd ranked magician in the magic guild of Vane. He's Ghaleon's "helper" but he's very stubborn and egotistocal and won't stop talking about Mia. His attacks are basically just lightning attacks but his physical attacks aren't that powerful. He's pretty fast though. Weapon of Choice: Bow Magic Type: Lightning =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Laike: Laike is a very powerful character that you will meet along the way to Saith. He has a pretty powerful physical attack and yet turns up at the most awkward areas. Weapon of Choice: Sword Magic Type: None =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Jessica: Daughter of Master Mell.. She has a quick temper and doesn't like studying. She takes after her dad and has good intentions. She's brave and is a pretty strong fighter and sticks by your side the entire time. She's a pretty good healer and has a pretty strong physical attack. Weapon of Choice: Cane Magic Type: Healing =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Kyle: Constantly in a fight with his girlfriend.. Jessica. He is a male chauvinist and Jessica hates him from being that way. But, asides from Kyle's faults, he is a very good and strong fighter and even stronger in some aspects, than Alex and also a pretty fast character later on in the game. Weapon of Choice: Sword Magic Type: Sword Attacks =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Mia: Mia, the future leader of the Magic Guild and also the daughter of Lemia, the head of the Magic Guild. Mia has a lot of MP and some powerful fire and ice magic. She fights to protect Vane and vows to help out her friends as long as they continue to fight against Ghaleon. Weapon of Choice: Cane Magic Type: Fire / Ice =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Ghaleon: Well, for the short time you have him, he's awesome but soon you'll hate him. Too bad he goes to "the dark side". Well, you'll see what I mean. Overall, he's a "very" good fighter. His attacks can instantly kill everyone on the screen using up very little MP. He's at Level 99. Weapon of Choice: Cane Magic Type: All Elemental =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Tempest: Someone you unsuspectingly meet. He wields a great power with his bow but not that great of a power. He's ok but you won't be seeing much of him. After a plague has struck his village, he vows to go out and find some cure before his wife, Fresca passes away. Weapon of Choice: Bow Magic Type: Arrow Attacks =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Ramus: Ramus, the son of the elder of Burg and also Alex's long time best friend, has dreams to become a millionaire and decides to go on an adventure with you to see if he can do so. Ramus is a so-so fighter. He's not that good of a fighter and after level 13-14, he can't level any higher. Weapon of Choice: Sword Magic Type: None =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Other Characters: Nall: Nall is basically the comic relief in the game. :) He's basically a flying cat but sounds sort of like a squeaky four year old girl. Anyways, Nall was given to Alex as a present by someone mysterious. He may seem small but Nall has the potential to be a great "Dragon". Some may even say that he is an offspring of a white dragon. Nall can attack but only if Kyle is at level 99 and uses his Power Slash technique. I'm not so sure it's worth the effort just to see Nall attack. :) Royce: At first, she seems to be a normal fortune teller in Meribia, but soon reveals her true nature and her evil intentions. Xenobia: Not much is known about Xenobia except she is a very strong person and one of the top leaders in the Vile Tribe. She is second to the Magic Emperor. Phacia: Once a Priestess at Althena's Shrine, she has become Evil. Despite the fact that she has gone "sour", she still has some good qualities. She knows when she's doing something bad and regrets that but, she still has to defend the Vile Tribe because she, as with many others were banned to the Frontier. But later in the game, she will not remain bad.. You'll see. :) Master Mel: The father of Jessica, he is the mayor of Meribia and one of the legendary four heroes. Although he doesn't join your group, he plays a significant role, in the dicision of Jessica to join your group. Myght: An inventor that lives in a tower, north of the village of Pao. He is the one who helps create an airship for you to fly to the Frontier. Lemia Ausa: She is the leader of the Magic Guild and also the founder. She teachers others on how to unleash their hidden magic abilities. Recently, she has been harsh, locking up people for the such small wrong doings. What has come over her? =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Characters - Magic =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Range Legend: 1 = One Person | 2 = Portion or a group | 3 = Everyone ------------------------------------------------------------------ Name | Range |Name of Magic | MP | Description ------------------------------------------------------------------ Alex | 1 |Dancing Swords* | 6 | Powerful Sword Attack | 2 |Explosion Staff | 9 | Sword/Fire attack | 1 |Vigor* | 18 | 20+ Increased Att. | 3 |Flash Cut* | 18 | Dash across the battlefield | 3 |Dragon Protect* | 60 | Nullify one magic attk. | 3 |Dragon Anger* | 35 | A shower of fireballs | 3 |Dragon Grief | 15 | Suck enemies away | 3 |Dragon Healing | 40 | Everyone back to full health ------------------------------------------------------------------ Luna | 1 |Healing Song* | 4 | Heals one person | 1 |Temptation Song | 8 | Hypnotic Spell | 1 |Purity Song | 4 | Cures Status Ailment | 1 |Cascade Song* | 10 | Increase Attack by 10 | 3 |Tranquil Song* | 15 | Heals all members | 3 |Escape Song | 10 | Helps you escape ------------------------------------------------------------------ Nash | 2 |Thunder Bomb* | 6 | Lightning attack | 2 |Stone Spell | 6 | Turns an enemy into stone | 1 |Thunder Bolt* | 15 | A powerful 1 person attack | 3 |Thunder Thrust* | 18 | Lightning attack (everyone) | 2 |Spark Ball | 10 | Temporary Paralysis | 2 |Sleep | 9 | Sleep | 2 |Confusion | 7 | Confusion | 2 |Magic Box | 8 | Silences ------------------------------------------------------------------ Jessica| 1 |Heal Litany* | 4 | Heals | 3 |Calm Litany* | 15 | Heals whole party | 3 |Saint Litany* | 12 | Healing after each turn | 1 |Althena Litany | 10 | Fully heal 1 person | 1 |Miracle Litany* | 20 | Ressurect a person | 1 |Cleanse Litany | 4 | Cure a status ailment | 2 |Fear Litany | 6 | Make an enemy flee | 3 |Escape Litany* | 20 | Teleport out of a dungeon ------------------------------------------------------------------ Tempest| 2 |Flash Arrow* | 8 | Explosive arrow on a group | 3 |Flash Wind | 10 | Blow monsters off battlefield ------------------------------------------------------------------ Mia | 1 |Flame Bomb | 13 | 1 person fire attack | 2 |Flame Circle* | 7 | Fire attack on a group | 3 |Flameria | 30 | Powerful Group Fire atk. | 1 |Power Drive* | 11 | Raises attack power | 1 |Ice Lance* | 5 | Single enemy ice attack | 2 |Ice Wall* | 15 | Ice blocks fall on a group | 3 |Blizzard | 10 | All enemy ice attack | 1 |Ice Shell | 11 | Defense up ------------------------------------------------------------------ Kyle | 1 |Power Slash* | 6 | Single Person Sword Attack | 2 |Power Sweep* | 9 | Multiple Person Sword Attack | 2 |Sonic Riser* | 14 | A beam slashed across | 1 |Power up* | 8 | Attack Power up ------------------------------------------------------------------ Ghaleon| 3 |Inferno * | 14 | Flame attack | 3 |Nitro Daggar* | 14 | Ice attack | 3 |Rock n Roll* | 10 | Rock attack | 3 |Tornado* | 10 | Er..

Go to Ramus' store to get it. - Mia's Bromide 2: On Vane, right before getting Nash and before entering the Silver Spire, go talk to the kid that's gathering everything in the classroom to the right of the Magic Guild. He will give it to you. - Mia's Bromide 3 / Jessica's Bromide 3: Talk to the guy on the second floor of a shop in Burg. Ramus will tell you to lend him money. Do so, and at the end of the game, he will give you these pics. - Mia's Bromide 4: Go to Lluk and talk to the guy who wants to get pics of Mia for the magazine or paper. Do so, after nash destroys the machine and before you give the invention to Myght. - Jessica's Bromide: Talk to a girl, who believes that she is Jessica's sister twice at Althena's shrine. - Jessica's Bromide 4: After you meet Kyle for the second time and before he joins your party, go to his bed and get it. - Royce's Bromide: After Mell is turned into a stone, someone on Black Rose Street will give it to you. - Luna's Bromide 1: Talk to Ramus at the end of the game. - Luna's Bromide 2: Luna's Bromide is in the basement of Alex's house with all the chests. Search around there. Nall will say something and that's the key of where it is. (After Luna leaves your party and before Mel changes to stone) - Xenobia's, Phacia's and Royce's Bromide: After Kyle joins your party and before the incident with Luna and Jessica in Pao, go to Ramus and buy these from him. - Phacia's Bromide 2: After you finish the Crystal Tower, go to Althena's shrine. A girl at the very back has it and will give it to you. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Red Treasure Chest Locations - =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Before you search for these chests, you need the thief's crest. Burg - Mayor's house - Garbage Can Lid Old Hag's house - Downstairs - Silverlight Weird Woods - Northeast area - Wrath Ring Saith - In a house - Protection Ring Merbia - A house below Ramus' shop - 2000 Silver Merbia Sewers - Area in basement of Mel's - Silverlight Cave of Trials - A few floors down - Soap Nanza - Bedroom area - Diamond Neclace Lann - Behind a house - Silverlight Nanza Barier - South of Nanza - Silverlight Reza - West edge of town - Silverlight Meryod Forest - Northwest corner - Fortune Ring Meryod - Behind a house - Silver light =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Tips and Tricks - =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Here are some tips and tricks... - Always spread your characters out.. if the enemies have a multiple target spell. - Don't use the AI function - When in doubt, level up a level or two.. but it won't help against bosses. - Keep magic users at the back - Listen to the NPCs.. some of them bear valuable info - Use the formation function in Lunar to form different formations - Heal often.. don't forget you can use healing magic when not in battle - Level up a few levels at every new area - Don't have the whole group flee at once. Do it person by person so that if only one person makes it out, you'll be able to flee. - Don't make your characters unbalanced with Alex's. If Alex is at level 40 and your other characters are at level, 20, the bosses stats will be much higher than those of your characters. - Don't have any soap? Just save before you use them and reload and two should be sufficient enough to watch all the movies of the game. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Monster Guide - Contributed By Kevin Moore =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Name HP Name HP =-=-=-=-=-=-=-= =-=-=-= =-=-=-=-=-=-=-= =-=-=-= Slime 15 Blob 250 Gelatin 350 Mutant Fly 10 Killer Fly 20 Giga Wasp 25 Slumber Moth 25 Fly Devil 100 Synapse Guard 20 Star Comet 85 Mech Star 250 Albino Baboon 50 Yeti 400 Fly Trapper 35 Mantle Rapper 30 Man Eater 150 Octo Plant 300 Ambush 250 Killer Weed 450 Gunfoot 65 Cannonfoot 400 Monoclop 120 Killer Roller 225 Goblin 40 Bobogoblin 300 Hell Raiser 350 Gorgon 45 Chronogorgon 100 Scythe Spore 35 Scythe Spore 2 250 Death Shroom 25 Shrieker 300 Mutant Ant 25 Antorion 50 Giga-Ant 210 Death Armor 350 Ring Horn 450 Shadow Lord 130 Rufus 150 Burner 250 Groper 200 Vikin 250 Stone Creep 400 Gades 550 Ultra Fiend 650 Gargoyle 125 Bomb Angle 350 Cannon Thug 400 Guardian 90 Dark Sorcerer 350 Nipple Yanker 200 Chaos Fiend 400 Flash Lord 210 Soul Yanker 325 Arc Mage 350 Beacon 350 Brain Licker 110 Brain Picker 350 Homunculus 110 Tormentor 200 Stink Bug 200 Devastor 280 Aqua Genies 300 Tank Golem 450 Magic Bat 50 Mecha Tank 225 Magic Machine 300 Arrowfish 250 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Items to look out for - =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= There's one or two more items. If you know the locations, please email me at [email protected] Hell Ring : This is probably one of the most beneficial items you'll ever find because it cuts the MP usage in half of whatever spells you're using. Anyways, go talk to Damon after Vane gets shot down. Gale Ring : After Vane gets destroyed, talk to Lily three times. She's by the Thieves Guild. You'll get an extra attack with this. Rememberizer : After the whole ordeal with the betrayal of Nash, go and talk to Ramus at Meribia. This device lets you watch all previously seen movies. You must get this item _before_ you head to the frontier. Ghaleon's Tear : With this item, you'll be able to hit everyone with your normal attack on the screen. Get this item before Nash leaves your party but after you've become a Dragonmaster. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Songs - Contributed By Kevin Moore : [email protected] =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Well, the songs are very well sang in the game by Jennie Stigle. Anyways, here are the lyrics to two songs that she sings in the game. The intro song as well as the boat song. _____________________________________________________________ Intro ------------------------------------------------------------- Japanese: | English: | Far, far into the | In your dreams, magical thoughts.. distant horizon | All things are real, unless you dream let's ride forgtten on | they're not.. wings in the wind. | In your dreams, love is the plot, | carried on wings of hope Sometimeswe will surely meet | as the charming future | Each, of our souls, intertwine, beckons us on. | like we do.. | Instantly we see it, Let's start the journey | the time to grow and be it, to a new world! | when everything is pinned on a hope Open the door to a memorable | legend! | Let rise the dreams of your heart, | that innocent youth | carless and kind. | | Free to roam the the breeze in love | only when two - | brilliantly shine, as one.. _____________________________________________________________ Boat Song ------------------------------------------------------------- Japanese: | English: | As traveling across the sea, | Wishing on a dream that seems far off from the unknown country, | Hoping it will come today. the wind passes gently | behind my ears, | Into the starlit night, will you tell me if people | Foolish dreamers turn their gaze, live with the same | Waiting on a shooting star. bewildering feeling inside? | | But, what if that star is not to come? | Will their dreams fade to nothing? To love someone, | When the horizon darkens most, or to be loved by someone | We all need to believe there is hope. I wonder what those feelings | are like? | Is an angel watching closely over me? I can only feel vaguely | Can there be a guiding light from afar, | I've yet to see? I want to cherish the feeling | I know my heart should guide me, but, that has just started | There's a hole within my soul. inside me, | the fate trembles my | What will fill this emptiness heart like the wind. | inside of me? | Am i to be satisfied without knowing? | I wish, then, for a chance to see, | Now all I need,> | Is my star to come... =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Mini Game! / Movie Watching - =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= During the making of Lunar movie, press up, down, left, right, triangle then start.

Nall: You...ninny-ninny, dumb-dumb poopy-head! Nall: I hope your nose is a snooze button, because I'm about to jab it Ramus: Don't worry nanny, I'm a big boy now.. Nall: Yes, Ramus is big. In fact, he's one of the largest kids I've seen. Nall: What.. What are you? Stay back! Get away from us! Laike: Are you lost? Or out for a picnic? Kyle: Heh heh.. He said "Sturdy Wood"... Luna: Alex, your face is turning red...
