      ASCII Art & FAQ by defunct32

 WELCOME BACK: STRONGER THAN EVER BEFORE
 Seeing things?  No, you're not. I've revamped this whole FAQ, cut down and
 removed  unnecessary  rubbish  to  make this guide less cluttered and more
 easy on the eyes. The previous one was somewhat "busy" and looks  annoying
 I cringe every single  time I see it, I can't believe no one has complain?

 Anyway!  I'm always improving,  but  then again it's also because I've too
 much free time on my hands nowadays. ;P oh! And brand new ASCII Art I made
 myself, it's nothing mind-blowingly awesome but hey! At least I created it
 from scratch. Hoorah!

 personal and private use. You, of course may not copy or redistribute  any

 ABOUT THE AUTHOR & THIS FAQ:
 Hello! My name is, Dil. This is my first FAQ...  So please go easy  on  me
 umm... I need to mention that English is not my native language, I'm Asian
 yes I'm using  the  "I'm-Asian-so-please-excuse-my-bad-sentences/mistakes/
 grammars-and-whatnot card."

 Ok!  I actually hate writing about myself,  let's  talk a little bit about
 gaming shall we? I promise to make this simple, short and sweet. :)

 My very first game was "Crono Trigger"  back  in  1995  by Squaresoft (now
 Square-Enix)  when  I  saw  my  brother  playing  it  on  his  SNES, I was
 intrigued,  so when he was off to work, I would fire up his SNES and  load
 the game in...

 I was hooked! The experience was amazing! I was drawn into the story,  the
 magic animations were crazy-cool  back then and still is now, the combined
 techniques was "wow!"  it was then I realized I've a thing for RPGs... Any
 form of it,  SRPG/Action-RPG/Card-RPG  (Yggdra Union for the GBA comes  to
 mind).  But the  game that  got me into the SRPG genre was  "Final Fantasy
 Tactics" for the PS1. Typical huh? I know.

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

 HOW I DISCOVERED LUMINOUS ARC:
 All thanks to word of mouth and  especially to a friend,  since  I've been
 rather vocal of my love for  RPGs and SRPGs  in general, L.A. was  brought
 to my attention. After watching a couple of previews and videos on YouTube
 I knew I had to have this game no matter what!  I'm just itching for a new
 SRPG experience. ;)

 Some of the best SRPGs I've played so far includes:

 o Disgaea: Hour of Darkness (PS2)/ now as Afternoon of Darkness (PSP)
 o Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories (PS2)
 o Final Fnatasy Tactics (PS1)
 o FFT Advance (GBA)
 o Yggdra Union (GBA) / one of my favourites

 *Sigh* sadly I no longer posesses the PS2,  but I sure am looking  forward
 to getting a PSP all for the classic titles: FFT and yes Disgaea too...

 THE SEARCH FUNCTION:
 I've  implemented a "search function" in this FAQ, it's a keyword found at
 every end, example: "Characters.........[CH!]" this way you won't have too
 many problems finding your desired section.

 1. In Windows: Ctrl + F
 2. Type in [CH!] or just CH!
 3. Hit Enter or "Find Next"

   I  strongly  suggest  you  go  through the basics of this FAQ first, get
   yourself  familiarize  with  how I organized and arranged my FAQ. And if
   you happened to have a manual-less game then this section will brief you
   on a little bit about the game's story, background and controls.

...........................................................................

 o GAME STORY [ST!]
   The story in this game  is nothing out of this world,  it's very generic
   actually,  and it wasn't well put together, you can tell who's  the good
   and  the  bad  guy  fairly  early  in  the  game,  and it seems the word
   "subtle"  does  not  exist in their dictionary; every little things they
   try  to  hide from you gives everything away. Make sense? I hope so, but
   bizarre stuff really.

BACKGROUND:

LIGHT AND PEACE
The Eunus Knights from the East and the Zephyroth Knights from the West are
the holy protectors of the Luminous Church. Protected by these Knights, the
Luminous  religion  has  led  the  people of the world into a golden age of
peace and prosperity,

THE SHADOW COMES
As  a  new millenium drawns, a taint of evil has begun to spread across the
land.  Recent  attacks  by monsters and supernatural phenomena appear to be
the  work  of  the evil "Witch of Immolation" that appeared with a burst of
scorching  flames.  The  people  have  been  reminded of the destruction at
Aldheld, a world-shattering battle that took place a thousand years before.
..

THE PROTECTORS
"Protect  the  Light,  Condemn  the  Dark". This is the motto of Heath, Arc
Knight  in  the  Luminous Church, and leader of the Ever Garden, a facility
created to train a group of special soldiers to protect the Church in these
times of strife.

...........................................................................

 o CHARACTERS [CH!]
   In  "Luminous Arc"  (L.A. from here on out)  sports  a diverse number of
   party members, as with all SRPGs there will be a healer, a magic user, a
   powerhouse  and  all  that  jazz! There's something for everyone to play
   with.

   Also! These are just my personal assesments, OPINIONS! So don't get  all
   personal  and  crazy  and  then e-mail me telling me how good Pollon is,
   and  how  I  am  going  to  burn in Hell for disagreeing with you. Cause
   chances are; I'm stubborn and am not gonna agree but I will respect your
   opinion,  and so should you (be respecting my opinion that is). Shall we
   begin?

THE GARDEN CHILDREN:
The  Garden  Children are a bunch of kids taken in by the Church since they
were  young,  raised  to  fight  against  the  Witches.  TGC  consists of a
few youngsters; you will be introduced to  5  of  them  early  in the game.
These descriptions are taken from the game manual. Also if you're wondering
what  the  God  in  Heaven is NAME'S INITIAL at the end of my "MY OPINION,"
it's just a reference I'll use later in the guide, so just take note.

                             ==================
                   A  L  P  H  /  R  I  F  L  E  M  A  N
                             ==================

A  boy  who  lives  in  the  Ever  Garden with his comrades and his younger
brother  Theo.  He  is  a  bit stubborn at times, but has a strong sense of
right  and  wrong. He cares greatly for his brother and for his friends. He
greatly admires Heath and wants to be a Knight like him one day.

   MY OPINION:
 o------------------------------------------------------------------------o
 | The  hero  of the game not really admirable on the battlefield but his |
 | skill set are  pretty  decent,  since most  of  them hit far and wide, |
 | "Magnum"  is  awesome  remember that.  Also he gets slightly better in |
 | term of skill set/stat later in the game. NAME'S INITIAL (A).          |

                             ==================
          L  U  C  I  A  /  P  A  R  T  -  T  I  M  E    M  A  I  D
                             ==================

A mysterious maid who came to work for the Ever Garden. She may come off as
cold,  but  she  actually cares for people despite her guarded personality.
She  takes  care  of  cleaning at the Ever Garden with the exception of the
dishes. She cares a lot for Alph, for some reason.

   MY OPINION:
 o------------------------------------------------------------------------o
 | In  all  honesty I rarely use Lucia, if ever, her list of Magic Spells |
 | is  nothing  to  write home about her stats are sub-par. I mainly just |
 | use her for *healing purposes,* nothing else. NAME'S INITIAL (LU).     |
 o------------------------------------------------------------------------o

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

                             ==================
             C  E  C  I  L  L  E  /  P  R  I  E  S  T  E  S  S
                             ==================

A  priestess  at  the  Ever  Garden.  She strongly believes in the Luminous
religion and enjoys the peace she gets by serving the Light. She is kind to
others,  with  a  warm heart, and believes in the teachings of the Luminous
Verses.

   MY OPINION:
 o------------------------------------------------------------------------o
 | Lol! Die fast and so hard at that too but she does her job well,  just |
 | abuse her  as  a  healer,  she  will  be a much better character later |
 | in the game. NAME'S INITIAL (C).                                       |
 o------------------------------------------------------------------------o

                             ==================
                      T  H  E  O  /  A  R  C  H  E  R
                             ==================

Alph's  younger  brother. Theo looks up to Alph more than anyone else. He's
usually training with Alph in the Ever Garden.

He will change class.

   MY OPINION:
 o------------------------------------------------------------------------o
 | A character who has yet to visit "Puberty Land," obsess with eggs  and |
 | love  his  brother  like  no other, I hated his voice-acting, but Theo |
 | can  really shoot with his bow, his skill set are the worst I've seen, |
 | I  shall   pretend that  it  never  exist. =O also, Theo's not a tank, |
 | so  putting  him on the front line is like, totallyyyyy sending him to |
 | Hell. NAME'S INITIAL (T).                                              |
 o------------------------------------------------------------------------o

                             ==================
                   L  E  O  N  /  F  I  G  H  T  E  R
                             ==================

Leon  has  lived in the Ever Garden since he was a small child, and grew up
with  Alph  and  the  others. His father was a renowned Knight in the heavy
cavalry,  known  as  the "Lion King," who lost his life in battle. Leon has
always  looked  up  to his father, and strives to become a stronger warrior
and live up to his father's legacy.

   MY OPINION:
 o------------------------------------------------------------------------o
 | Even though I pretty much hate Leon for his lame dialogue in the game, |
 | I've to  admit  he's good on the battlefield. He delivers crazy damage |
 | and takes in very little, a powerhouse? Indeed. NAME'S INITIAL (L).    |

                             ==================
              H  E  A  T  H  /  A  R  C   K  N  I  G  H  T
                             ==================

Heath  is  an  Arc  Knight  for  the  Luminous  Church.  He is known as the
"Cleansing  Flame,"  and  is  respected  by those around him for his strong
faith  and skill in battle. He is prepared to throw himself into any battle
to fight for justice. Heath's title suits great knowledge of combat. He has
a  deep  hatred  of Witches, and believes that they should all be condemned
under the Luminous Church's power.

   MY OPINION:
 o------------------------------------------------------------------------o
 | Seriously   Heath  +  Leon  =  AWESOME!  He  left  early  but  he will |
 | return  to  your  party  eventually...  OMG  SPOILERS?! :O He's  great |
 | individually too. *mumble* *mumble*. NAME'S INITIAL (H).               |

 o OTHER CHARACTERS (SPOILERS?):
   When you progress further and further into the game, you will meet other
   characters along the way that will  help aid you in your cause, they add
   a little more flair  and  diversity into your  team,  but  I  personally
   dislike  an  RPG with too many people, it's not like I will be using all
   of them and leveling them up is a chore,  and  most  of them are fillers
   A.K.A.  "I'm here to take up space and be an eyesore,  I also have sucky
   stats and skill/magic set" anyway.  The  only  game  that pulled off the
   "too-many-characters-card"  are  the Suikoden series and Final Fantasy 6
   AND CRONO TRIGGER, of course CT being the best cause I'm biased. :P

   They're NOT listed in order.

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

                             ==================
                       S  A  K  I  /  N  I  N  J  A
                             ==================

Saki  has  one  of  the  worst  Skill  Set (next to Theo) in the game in my
opinion.  Skills  like "Fire & VoltCard," inflicts very little damage while
"SpdJutsu"  raises your own speed for 4 turns but what's the point in doing
this? Saki is already a character  of  speed!  "ChiStrike"  may possibly be
one of her better skill since it hits far and wide. You're better off using
physical  attack to deal real  damage with Saki or better yet; use her as a
decoy or shield BUT even that is a task too hard for her to undertake, Why?
Cause she die fast too.

Saki = Bloody Eyesore & a waste of people's time and space. PERIOD.

NAME'S INITIAL (S).

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

                             ==================
                 N  I  K  O  L  A  I  /  S  A  V  A  N  T
                             ==================

Nikolai sports an interesting set of Magic List: they're mostly buff (stat-
increasing  magics)  spells, beside having an annoying voice-acting in  the
game he's pretty useful. I always start with him casting ATK UP/SPEED UP on
Alph,  Leon  and  all my powerhouse characters. Nikolai isn't too bad with
his greatbow like Theo he's able to aim far, in fact much farther than Theo
ever could. NAME'S INITIAL (N).

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

                             ==================
                      K  A  I  /  S  A  M  U  R  A  I
                             ==================

Like  Saki  Kai's  Skill  Set is a little disappointing they're pretty much
selfish  skills  that buffs or raises the user's stat. Though Kai's able to
deliver  the  hurt  pretty  well on the battlefield, but he's seems to be a
little  weak.  Not  much to say about him here... Except maybe Samurais are
way cooler than Ninjas. NAME'S INITIAL (K).

                             ==================
             M  E  L  /  T  O  R  R  E  N  T   W  I  T  C  H
                             ==================

Advocate  of  the Water Element, Mel is just another Cecille to take in her
place when Cecille becomes WHOAMG! SHE'S EXTREMELY USEFUL AS A HEALER. Take
time  to  level  her  up  until she has access to her most powerful healing
magic  known as "SALVATION." Once you've that consider yourself invincible.
Bring Mel in every battle possible. NAME INITIAL (M).

                             ==================
             M  A  V  I  /  N  A  T  U  R  E   W  I  T  C  H
                             ==================

Don't use Mavi for her magic; first being the fact that her line-up is
effin' lame, 2nd she's weak magically you'll find that having her attack
physically with her fist will yield more damage than you ever will with
her spells. The only redeeming magic she ever possess is the stats-buffing
spells like "Guard UP" and so on. NAME'S INITIAL (MA).

HIGH  MAGIC  STAT,  I love using her "Drang" spell, level her up as much as
you  can  she's  much more stronger magically than anyone else in the game.
Though she's a little slow in the speed department. NAME'S INITIAL (CL).

What can I say about her? Beside being lazy and always wanting to sleep, VV
can move  really far with her flying carpet (much like Saki, cept' Saki has
no  carpet),  and  I really like her  "Raging Wind"(?) spell, that inflicts
Confuse  status  on the enemy,  it  really helps a lot, otherwise her magic
set aren't all that impressive, take in quite a bit of damage and her magic
stat are nothing to be amazed about. NAME'S INITIAL (VV).

Original name was Vanessa Witch of Immolation, but what the heck that's a
name too long I prefer Crimson Witch or something like that. Keep things
simple please. Anyway Vanessa is pretty much an an all-rounders, her
ATK, DEF and MAG aren't all that shabby use her whenever you get the
chance, though sucky thing is she joins your party as a permanent member
late in the game. NAME'S INITIAL (V).

Ok! Since I added him I might as well do a small review on this guy, he got
a  high  Attack/Strength stat I admit, but his accuracy needs a little more
work...  Even  with  everything combined to raise his accuracy Pollon still
misses a lot.  I  don't  know maybe some of you guys will find him a gem or
something  but  I  see  nothing.  And  yes that's it my review, *sticks out
tongue* NAME'S INITIAL (PP).

Alph will get all emotional that Sir Heath refuses to listen to him,  Lucia
will try to console Alph but it turned into something like "I can't  depend
on  you, and I really can't depend on you at all" talk. Lucia will  stormed
off on her own; "Goodbye, you crybaby" :'(

TIPS
####

The  monks  are seriously pushing the envelope, since I didn't really level
up  my  party  that  much  I'm  suffering  here a bit. Well the basic still
applies  though -- "Leon + Charge + X-Slash"  (hit  from  the side or back)
will  almost  decimate  a monk's life. If you bring in Mel and Cecille they
should be your primary healer, please put them far away but near enough  to
lend a helping hand to the melee fighters in your party.

If you bring in Mavi and Nikolai, Nikolai can cast "Atk UP" on Kai and Alph
and Mavi can execute "GuardUP" on them. Your choice.

Andre will no doubt abuse his Flash Drive whenever he gets the chance, this
is crazy since Lucia isn't here your healing PoWeRz has gone down a  notch,
though  taking  out  Andre  with Leon might be tempting, I strongly suggest
taking  out those pesky magic-users, then get those monks out of the way or
at least bring their health down, they will run away, once you shooed  them
off, you can concentrate all your attack on Andre.

Once  Andre  is  gone,  shift your attention to the monks  (if you chose to
bring the monk's health down  instead of completely killing them)  and this
map will finish.  Don't  forget to  keep healing  and  use  VitaMints/Tonic
whenever necessary.

#########
AFTERMATH
#########

Leon will find out that Andre was the culprit behind his father's death. So
he decided to go  after the metalhead, while you guys go on ahead and carry
out your mission with the Witches.

Everyone will knock some sense into Alph! It's time to find Lucia.

Done? Save and then choose to advance the story.

Lucia  will  be  experiencing  a lot of trouble with the Steel Witch, seems
like  the  Lab Experiment prove to be quite a threat?! No...? Alph and crew
will  arrive   on   time   and   apologize  and  stuff, Lucia said that she
believed in Alph all along...

They both will perform some weird "ritual" of closing your eyes,  lol  this
artwork reminds me of Theo & Alph's "Rym's Impact" Synergy except it's Theo
ugh! Anyway Alph will finally change class to "Rym Hero."

Such  a snazzy outfit Alph ;D his last three skills will change too, I have
yet  to  earn them while Alph still a Rifleman, so I don't know if the last
three  skills  as  a  Rifleman  exist  or  not? Or maybe it's left empty on
purpose  so  when  you change Class the new 3 skills will fill up the empty
slots? Can anyone verify please?

Alph and Lucia will learn "Shining Ray" as their Synergy. Rejoice! Now it's
time to kick Iris in the butt.

TIPS
####

Alph  and  Lucia will be in the middle of the map, and the rest down below.
You should move both Alph and Lu all the way down and team up with the rest
as soon as their turn comes up of course dispatching the Cleric and  Knight
along the way, they will be sandwiched anyway.

You  may want to have your Alph cast "RymShld" on Lucia to protect her from
suffering any damage for three turns... Ok JUST BLOODY CAST IT ANYWAY.

Iris  will  definitely  use her "Flash Drive" I suggest bringing in Mel and
Cecille  (you're  bound  to  bring  one of the healers anyway right? Well I
brought both), Theo and Nikolai can assist with their attack from the back,
if you bring in Mavi you can push her to the front but be sure to have  one
of  your  healer  backing  her  up,  I'm  sure everyone and everything will
squezze  at  the bottom screen, which is fun ^^; cause this battle is easy.
Iris  is  no threat unless she start abusing her FD's but couple with a lot
of healing and VitaMints you shouldn't be experiencing a lot of trouble.

Leveling up prior to this fight also helps tremendously!

#########
AFTERMATH
#########

You'll head back to  "Lethe Forest"  to bring  Mother Lapistier back to the
Witch Village...

This is not the last you'll see of Iris.

Hugo will try to bring the barrier down with the Round Table Council's  new
invention  but  it  didn't  work,  Priel will lol'd and destroy the barrier
single handedly.

The screen will soon switch to your crew, Claire will sense something amiss
she  sensed  that  the  barrier has been destroyed, Vanessa will appear and
repeat  the  same  thing  (durr!)  Claire  was called an idiot and admitted
herself to being one. Wow...

Therese and Alice will cry and said that some strange man went by  straight
to  Mother  Lapis,  you will get the "Preparation Screen" but there's isn't
much  to  do now, feel free to save if you want otherwise choose to advance
the story.

Priel will destroy  Mother Lapis,  Cecille will have a headache and fainted
right away...

You'll then get an improved  and much better Cecille --  The Twilight Witch
ahhhh! You will now also learn a new Synergy for both Cecille and Saki. Now

TIPS
####

Cecille realllly helps in this fight! Her "Abyss" hits for high damage  and
for 5 panels (5 persons), her "HealAll" covers a wide range and heals for a
lot  too,  Vanessa  can really delivers damage with just her attack. So you
have great people on your side, and I can honestly, frankly, truthfully say
this  battle  is  very,  very easy, if you get own by Priel... I don't know
what else to say, OMG perhaps? Like so totally OWNZ by Priel is not cool =O

Now when you first start, spread out, the map is generous with space so you
can place your characters anywhere, bring in Mel for extra healing  powers,
Priel  will  of  course abuse her Flash when she gets the chance to use it,
but  it  will  only  hit  for  200+  damage but still it hurts, so heal the
victims  ASAP I actually gang up on Priel! Allow me to demostrate:

                                    ME
                                 ME :( ME
                                    ME

                                   :O :)

 o ME = MEEEEEEE!
 o :( = Priel
 o :O = Cecille - Spam Dark (not Abyss unless you want ME to get hurt)
 o :) = Mel - Spam Heal
 o Priel = OWN!

Attacking  on  all four side is really awesome, once Priel is gone, you can
concentrate  on  the lesser enemies, they're easy to cull so just give your
all,  I  didn't  mention  Alph  eh? Cause when Cecille became the "Twilight
Witch," Alph as a "Rym Hero" fails on so many levels. HA HA HA!

#########
AFTERMATH
#########

Hugo  and  Priel  will make their escape, Vanessa will run after them, Alph
will wonder how could something like that be an Angel? (well I'm  wondering
too) ha ha! Oh... Mel said she is MORE surprised that Cecille's a Witch, oh
well the first time when she entered the "Witch Village" the part where she
said  she  heard  a voice saying "welcome back" is a dead giveaway, so I am
not surprised Mel, I'm more confused than surprise actually...

Cecille  said that she left the village and sealed her memory and according
to  the  Garden  Children  they  were  together since they were kids, so is
Cecille  saying  that  she left the forest as a kid to join the rest of the
Garden Children? How did the Lapistiers got scattered all over the world? I
think they  did  cover about this topic, I think I overlooked? And how come
the  Witches  never mention anything about the "Dark Rune?" As in,  there's
6  of  them, if the planet is indeed governs by 7 elements, why aren't they
talking about where is "The Twilight Witch" their missing sister?  Cecille?

I don't know where the hell am I going with this?!

ALSO  DARKNESS CONTROL DESTINY? HOW DO YOU DEFINE PATH AND DESTINY IF  IT'S
GOVERNS  BY DARKNESS? EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE SO DARK!!!! I'D RATHER  THE
DAWN WITCH GOVERNS FATE AND DESTINY!


Oh! My keyboard's capslock was screwed hence is why everything is in  upper
case, I didn't said this before right? I'm kind of lazy to bring everything
to  their  right  "case" just pretend I'm not yelling k. It's not like  I'm
worked  up  over  something  like darkness controls destiny, the developers
sure have a weird sense of humor.

###################
LEVEL UP, LEVEL UP!
###################

Before you start the next Chapter I suggest you go level up your party of 8
Cecille will be super handy now that she has a couple of healing/aid spells
"Restore"  will  completely revive a fallen character (full HP/MP), HealAll
covers  a  WIDE  range  and  heals for a lot more... Her "Abyss" and "Dark"
spells are definitely perfect for "mass killing."

CECILLE IS A GODDESS NOW!

This is intentional, not due to capslock issue k.

TIPS

Iris  is  a  darn  cheater  she starts with 3/3 FD's, so what I did is push
every  one  to  the  back leaving the one with the most HP in the front, so
Iris  can  waste  her  drive  on  that one person, now the moment you get a
chance  to  move  heal the victim, unless you plan on making him or her the
scapegoat, then leave the person to die.

Do  not  stay  cluttered  together,  Iris and her minions have multi-target
spells.  I  know there's isn't much space but do you know you can jump over
to the side where the Rangers are? Oh! Talking about Rangers, they're quite
a  pest,  I took them out right after I've taken away the Armors (Knights),
Iris will of course keep on abusing her FD whenever she gets the chance and
will  also use her most powerful spell, she will run out of MP pretty  fast
though,  so  the  key  to  this fight is HEAL, HEAL, HEAL! It also helps if
you're  level 41 and above, I'm pretty low level, but miraculously I'm able
to pull this map off.

Yes strategy + luck (real life luck) I supposed? If only Leon was here.

#########
AFTERMATH
#########

Vivi will smell many people coming your way! Saki will go and appraise  the
size  of  the  pursuers,  turned  out to be a whole fleet of Army and their
commander is none other than Sir Heath (Iris' favourtie), Iris will butt in
and  call  Sir  Heath,  Heath will be shocked to see Iris! =O and--- *Priel
butts  in*  follow  by  Kingston whoa! We have quite a party here eh? Lol @
"Witches, traitors and 500 fools" after Priel snuffed out all those 500 men
you will see an interesting cutscene between Heath and Iris.

It's  very  interesting,  I  really like the voice-acting in this part. You
will  soon  discover that Iris was an orphan Heath took care of and she has
since  love Heath as an older brother, Kai will step forward and Heath will
thank Kai for protecting Alph and the others. Turned out Heath has been  on
our  side  all  along, (such dramatic plot twist? *predictable really :|*).
Alph will be happy that Heath is back, Lucia will make fun of Alph  sobbing
over him, Kai and Sir Heath will learn the Synergy "Holy Knights."

You  will  now  head  for the "Holy Capital." I recommend that you level up
your party of 8 to at least above level 41+ now.

 "you're nothing but a guard dog" - Leon

"The  Holy  Eclipse"  is  proceeding smoothly according to Heath, Alph will
demand  that  we  stop  them right now! But Heath refuses saying about some
crows  blocking  the  way bummer! VV will smell sweat and blood coming from
"that direction"  so you guys decided to check it out.  But of course.  You
will now get the "Preparation Screen." Not much to choose so pick  "Advance
the Story."

You'll see Leon arguing with Andre, seems like Andre is really proud to  be
guarding these "Holy Gates" Leon will smack it right in his face by  saying
"you're nothing but a guard dog." A+ Leon!

After much  talking...  Alph  will butt in, more talking... Then Andre will
summons  crows  and stars alike, lol according to Andre they're the best of
the best! Wait till they meet Cecille and her "Culling" spell. HAHAHA!

CECILLE IS A GODDESS!

TIPS
####

First!  Move away but position everyone so that they won't miss out  on the
buffings!

Did  you level up Leon? Well I didn't.   But that's not the point, anyway I
brought  Cecille,  Mel and  Lucia  along now the moment I get the chance to
move Cecille I cast  "Magic Up"  on  the three Witches, the moment I get to
move Heath I cast  "Protector" on the three Witches also, when I get to use
Alph I cast "RymShld" on Leon.

BUFF GALORE!

Oh yes! Andre will come "equipped" with full FDs (3/3) so it's always  good
to  steer  clear  of him first, let the monks come over to you, the Bishops
will  be  more  of  a nuisance than a threat, since they tend to heal their
wounded allies which is not cool.

What I did is to clear out all the monks first (perserving my FDs as  well)
then lure Andre out into the open he will hit hard if you're low-level  and
will of course abuse his FDs whenever he got the chance, this is where  the
three Witches will come in handy, spam Heal as much as you can, also  Mel's
"Hail" will really hurt the monks since they're of the Fire Elements,  once
the monks are taken care of, you can choose to shift your attention to  the
Bishops  I  took  care  of  Andre  first by ganging up on him, then finally
remove all the irritants that are called "Bishops." How you chose to do  it
your business. ;)

This  fight is  easy! You've a lot of space to move, very generous you just
need to heal very often!

#########
AFTERMATH
#########

Andre will finally be defeated Theo will comment with his squeaky voice....
Oh  baby I cringed! x\ everyone will butt in and commend on Leon's superior
skills,  you  will  obtain  the  "Regulus Heart." Leon will be surprised at
Cecille's  transformation,  cool!  After much talking Nikolai and Leon will
learn  a  new  Synergy "Rival Strike" man these two should just hook up and
learn  another  Synergy "Lovers' Strike" always bickering.

Leon will change class to  "Sword Master"  but it's just a  name... Now get
your ass up and head to San Reise! -_- OH LOL! I MUST SAY THIS IS THE  BEST
"LIFE OF KOPIN" ever! Oh that sexy, long, luscious legs!

You will be at San Reise: The Holy Capital the place where they  supposedly
trying  to revive God. Everyone will be in a hurry to stop the ceremony but
your (not mine) favourite Manatee had to be a wet blanket and  asked  for a
breather! Leon argued that there's no time for break.

Don't  forget  you  have "Andre Armor" I used that on Alph. Done? Return to
the World Map and save, then advance the story.

Lucia  will  noticed a fight near the entrance, turned out it's our  lovely
Vanessa,  she  will now join your team permanently which is cool! Now I can
present you my Greatest 8:

01. Alph
02. Leon
03. Heath
04. Lucia
05. Cecille
06. Mel
07. Claire
08. Vanessa

I  will  use the above till I send God to Hell. Claire will urged the Big V
to  fight  together, Vanessa will of course "shoot" Claire for her lameness
which  in turn will make the purple-haired Witch cry. Now get those out  of
the way, cause it's time to stop God's rebirth.

####
TIPS
####

This  battle  is  really easy, just don't let the Templars empower you, you
can  ignore  the  Wizards  for  a bit, but try to take out the Bishop cause
she  heals  her  wounded allies  as  well  as  the  Marksmen -- Archers are
annoying.

What  I  did  is to buff up my primary attackers, Vanessa will have "AtkUP"
Heath  have  "Protector" (Guard  UP),  Cecille have "Magic  UP" apply it on
your attackers/healers  (atk UP/Magic  UP  respectively). I  sent  out Leon
to  dispatch the Templars with Mel backing him up with healing spells, Alph
can  aid by using "Rifle/Magnum" or "Shotgun" Lucia and Cecille can help in
healing the rest...

To  make this fight even easier, once you've earned Cecille's "Culling" you
can  use it to take out most of the enemies. There's isn't much strategy to
offer here.

Insignificant people will be inside the Church: Kingston and Johanees,  the

TIPS

Oh lol! What  kind  of  bizarre  end  product is this? The 4 "eyes" are not
really  something  you  should be worried about, let them come over to you,
seems  like  the only spell they ever spit out is "Drang" which still hurts
over  190+ HP anyway, so be sure to spam Heal/or higher tier magic spell as
much as you can. They're rather easy to gang up on.

The  real  "boss" is even easier, all it ever does it sit there and do some
occasional  lol attacks. I seriously shouldn't be giving any tips much less
strategy for this fight!

...It's getting ridiculous.

#########
AFTERMATH

Kingston's new toy  failed  miserably, Vanessa will rub it in his face some
more  with  some comments, Kingston will escape and meet up with The Angel.
"Oh  no!  You  guys totally lost  already?"  what a ditz :\ lolz. Jojo just
started to form the cocoon, whatever that means...?

Priel  said  that  once  the cocoon hatches Master God will be resurrected.

Alph will offer to smash the Cocoon to bits,  which doesn't  go  very  well
with the Angel.

TIPS
####

Since  you  can't  save your game and this is your third battle in a row, I
suggest  you  suspend  your game, don't worry the Suspended File will never
disappear  like  most  other  games  would,  which is kind of like a  God's
blessing...

This  battle  is  surprisingly  easy.  Oh  my God I've been saying easy for
almost  every  battle,  but  I'm  not kidding, one of the Armor will almost
certainly  attack  one  of  your party members, what's next? Gang up on him
thank  the  Heaven Priel did not come with full FDs (3/3) so you can ignore
the  valley  girl for a while, clear away all the lesser enemies, then just
gang up on Priel.

There! I  know my tips are beginning to get "lazy" but I swear upon my life
this  game  is  getting  reaaaaally  easy.  So  I'm  not  gonna insult your
intelligence by telling you to do this and that. Also new formula for  Leon
"Charge + HoundClaw" = Sure Win!

#########
AFTERMATH
#########

Master God's cocoon  is complete!  Priel will  disappear  leaving  Kingston
behind, crazy stuff! Heath will try to stop Kingston but alas, Kingston had
that flashy Bright White Light magic to get away...

You'll now make track to a new continent which I've no idea how to spell it
just take the time to level up your most used 8 characters...

WOE ARE US!

Ugh! The battle at the ship... The lag is a bloody torture!

You will  see  Hugo and Kingston  talking  about something,  something that

to bits, this got Kingston all enraged and Hugo wallowing in despair.

Alph  and  crew will finally  reached their  destination,  seems like God's

Done?! Save your game, then advance the story.

The  crew  will find both Kingston and Hugo depressed, when was asked about
God's  whereabout  Kingston  claimed  the  "stupid  angel"  took  it   away
somewhere.  Kingston  will  mumble  about how  this  world belongs to human
and  how  humanity has flourished  this  very planet for  the past 1k years
Oh oops! I got lazy and used 1k, I meant 1000 years! Man so much talking.

Everyone  will be agitated and just want to stop God's resurrection, Claire
will  interrupt and  asked  Kingston to give the Water Lapistier back, this
however didn't  turned  out so well as Kingston now demands you to give all
the  Lapistier you have in your possession!  Kingston  will then insert the
Water  Lapistier into Hugo's body,  cut to the chase,  you  will now  fight
Hugo!

This is all Claire's fault I tell you!

TIPS

Watered-down version:

01. Buff Leon up (ATK UP/DEF UP).
02. Send him to "HoundClaw" every enemy away.
03. The rest back up him up!
04. Win.

There  will  be a Sorcerer located at the bottom near you, take him out, it
will  be  easy, Alph should be able to handle him alone, send out Leon with
full  buffs (ATK UP/DEF UP),  if  you  have  healers in your party you know
what to do with them?!

Hugo will  come  with  full  FDs  (3/3)  so send a scapegoat to consume the
attack,  my  Leon survived but was paralyzed, no biggie, I just use Lucia's
"Cure"  and  Mel's  "Heal"  the  Snipers  as  always  are  a n uisance just
"HoundClaw" them away and this map is yet another easy one. >.<

Seriously  once  you&#39;ve  leveled  up  enough  and  equipped the best weapon
available this game will be easy till the end.

#########
AFTERMATH
#########

Kingston will start abusing you with all sort of nonsense and then  finally
turned to God for comfort, how annoying eh? He will "flashed away" you will
decided to go pursue God at the Ancient Battlefield. You will now learn the
final Synergy "Rainbow Array." This game is coming to an end now, I suggest
you  start  leveling  up your party of 8 massively, especially the one with
healing abilities...

And take the time to try out "Rainbow Array"

You  will see  Kingston  trying to be in God&#39;s good book now, Kingston will
"push"  the  Angel  aside...  After  much talking Priel will push the Water

TIPS

Since this place is made of ice, Fire Elementals will be at a disadvantage,
since I uses both Leon and Vanessa they suffer the most. But I had Mel back
them  up  since  she&#39;s  Water  Elemental she takes half the damage from Ice
magic, she also heals a little more :) this battle proves to be a challenge
cause the Ice Golems here actually heals. Bummer and they hit hard too  -_-

Also  because  I&#39;m a little underlevel. Anyway spread out your party so the
monsters  can&#39;t  multi target you with their horrible spells, Kingston will
be  of  no  threat  excpt that he will occasionally uses his FD to heal his
wounded  allies  which is  no  big deal also, Leon will prove to be reallly
awesome with his "Charge or Atk UP + HoundClaw" save his FDs for the  last.

You should concentrate on removing the Ice Golems first since they can heal
I  used Cecille&#39;s "Culling" for an easier time and it works 80% of the time
which  is  crazy awesome! :\ once the Ice Golems are taken care of, you can
now dispatch the rest! Hard but doable.

#########
AFTERMATH
#########

Kingston will finally perish  and vanish from the face of the Earth...  But
Zehaal has finally emerged from his cocoon! Priel will be super excited but
the planet will interfere angering God  and  pissing off the Angel...   God
will continue to roar like an  idiot  this is when Priel will decide to  go
straight to the planet&#39;s heart!  You will now head  for the  desert   where
there will be an opening to the core of the planet. Level up as much as you
can then save your game.

...........................................................................

   ############################
   CHAPTER 24: THE PORTAL [TP#]

 "Do, like insects get to vote? No." - Priel

You will now be at the desert,  Cecille  will  remind  everyone  that we&#39;re
fighting  a  God  and that the "Spear of Dawn" may be needed (also known as
"Over Flash")  only Lucia can use it, there&#39;s a catch to it though if Lucia
were to cast it then she will RISK losing her life.

Anyway you will enter the Core of the Planet  you will soon see  the  Angel
there,  Priel will not let you crash the exclusive party, and tell everyone
that going against the very Being that created you is RUDE! Now the Angel&#39;s
mad.

TIPS

Priel  now  comes  with  full FDs (3/3) but even if she depletes her FDs it
seems  that  she is still able to pull off a Flash Drive, this is not nice!
Did you purchase  enough  "Fresh Air?" Cause it will come in handy in later
fights!  You don&#39;t have to waste any "Fresh Air"  in this fight though. I&#39;m
just reminding you, haha.

Send  one  scapegoat  so  s/he  can  consume Priel&#39;s FDs if the victim dies
it&#39;s up to  you  whether  or  not to revive him/her, I sent out Alph and he
died and I didn&#39;t  bother  to  revive  him. Priel can still execute her FDs
but nothing grand like the first time.

Send out your best fighters (for me it&#39;s Leon and Heath) to dispose of  the
Ice  Golems,  the  rest can remove the Fire Golems on the right, once these
Golems  are  taken care  of,  merge  everyone  together  in  the center and
dispatch those minotaurs look-a-like, and finally the Cerberus.

I  saved Leon&#39;s  FDs  and  unleash  it  on Priel = WIN! "Charge or Atk UP +
Burn Drive."

#########
AFTERMATH
#########

Priel&#39;s  power  is fading, but that&#39;s only because Zehaal is consuming her,
that&#39;s  right God just consumes everything, everyone will start to spew out
words of wisdom, get that done and over with...

Now I strongly  suggest  you  go and level up, imbue your equipments if you
want,  I  suggest your level to be in the mid 60s? Your call, I didn&#39;t even
bother leveling up.

 "Promise me Alph... You will protect the planet" - Lucia

More  talking  it&#39;s just the same thing; different phrases, different words
Lucia  may  have  to use the "Over Flash" though.

The  conversation between Alph and Lucia is really interesting and the song
from the "Intermission"  really  sets the mood! You will see God talking to
himself then you interrupt him, after much verbal exchange go to the  World
Map  and  make ANY LAST PREPARATIONS - Buy items, imbue, level up ANYTHING,

TIPS

This battle with God and the 6 Priel look-a-like is a joke :P all you  need
to remember is to:

01. Heal, heal, heal (Mel&#39;s "Salvation" is awesome).
02. Quickly go over to the right or left. Don&#39;t spilt everyone up.
03. Leon = Charge or Atk UP + HoundClaw.

Here  is  what  I  did, with Cecille equipped with "Ribbon" she will not be
charmed so she  is  my  primary healer with Mel assisting her send everyone
either  to  the  right or left, the Priels will definitely attack you, they
have  two  types: "Lightwave"  and  "Charm" the latter will of course cause
havoc, if anyone is affected use "Fresh Air" right away!

If you&#39;ve Vanessa with you or anyone with "Atk UP" use it on Leon and Heath
if  you&#39;ve  Heath use "Protector" on both himself and Leon, likewise anyone
with  "Guard  UP" can help chip in, Cecille&#39;s should cast "Magic UP" on the
Witches.

Also  speaking  of  Cecille, you can abuse her "Culling" spell to make this
fight  even more easier,  but  it&#39;s  up  to you, your level must exceed the
victim&#39;s though otherwise you&#39;ll get 0% hit rate.

Leon  can  deliver damage with his  "HoundClaw"  the Priels will succumb to
it  do  not  attack  Zehaal  as  he  has some form of shield on him, making
your  attack  useless,  instead   save   up Leon&#39;s  FDs  till  the last and
unleash  it on Zehaal, you may want to deplete his life a little with Magic
attacks first.

#########

Zehaal will transform, this is the real Zehaal -- The "Wings of Doom"  very
interesting...

TIPS
####

Zehaal  will teleport from one place to another, so kill him fast or you&#39;ll
be  annoyed for sure. Abuse all your "FP-Fizzy/Max" so your FDs will charge
faster,  I&#39;m  not sure  if  you can actually attack him physically, I tried
magically  but  it failed, so I just wait for everyone&#39;s FDs to charge  and
unleash FDs on Zehaal...

Seriously  this  battle  requires  no  strategy except for constant healing
and whatnot.

######################################
ALTERNATE STRATEGY: SUBMITTED BY KEVIN
######################################

Suggestions for Zehaal Battle at the end. 

1) It  started  with  Zehaal  using  his  level  3  super on my party which
automatically  seems  to  hit  everyone  and also give himself a shell buff
(against  physical  I think for 3 turns),  it&#39;s  similar  to  what Alph has
(rymshield  I think)

2) I moved my characters up towards Zehaal and he cases a spell, or uses  a
super  if  he  is able then teleports away. There are only 3 places that he
can teleport to so if you take two of your weaker characters and leave them
on  those  other  2  spots,  he will no longer teleport making it easier to
focus all of your attacks on him.

3) I believe he used both his level 1 and level 3 super on my party and  as
an  after  effect,  the  next  3 physical attacks will miss,  so you should
attack with three weak attacks then go all out.

###############
THIS IS THE END
###############

Zehaal refuses to die at least not until he has consumed the world,  pretty
stubborn huh? Lol, Vanessa will sense tremendous power from God, His  power
is  growing...  If you don&#39;t do something everything will be annihilated, I
really dislike Saki what&#39;s with you and your intel?

Lucia  will  then  try  to perform the "Over Flash" of course there will be
some  people  who are against it, especially Alph. This is where everything
will get super interesting... I will not spoilt the story ENJOY THE ENDING.

#########
NEW GAME+
#########

Be  sure to watch through everything and SAVE AT THE END, this will open up
a  NEW  GAME+  you get to keep all your money, your stats/magics/equipments
and  everyone  is  usable  in  random  encounters  as  well  as  in the new
mysterious dungeon called "Mysteria Ruin" Have fun!

The Light Laspistier flashed

Enveloping umm.... damn I forgot lol....

The light encompassed the entire planet

One year later...

Stupid stuff I can&#39;t help but notice:
 o Did you noticed everyone still wear the same thing even after one year?
 o The only one that has change is Lucia at the end.
 o Theo&#39;s voice is still the same? -_-
 o The way Alph talked to his brother it sounds like he&#39;s comforting a girl

Everyone  will now lead their own life... One of the many game which ending
got  me  all  wondering  "what happens next? I WANT MORE"  we&#39;ll be getting
L.A. 2: Will, I&#39;ve a feeling that&#39;s a prequel or an indirect sequel.

Only time will tell. I hope I did well with this guide. :)

...........................................................................

   P  O  S  T  -  G  A  M  E  [02^]

   Yes!   There&#39;s a  New Game+,  a new dungeon will  be  opened  for   your
   exploration; it&#39;s nothing more than just floors upon floors of  fighting
   with monsters and whatnot, it&#39;s really boring.

...........................................................................

###############
NEW GAME+ [NG*]
###############

Suggested by: Hai Xin Jiang (fellow L.A. player).

Right after you&#39;ve completed the game (credits rolled, blablabla) you&#39;ll be
prompted to save a CLEAR GAME FILE  or something like that, you may want to
save this in a separate slot or overwrite any of your current ones, it&#39;s up
to you.

In this small section  I&#39;ll  list the things you get to keep and the things
you can do in New Game+ (NG+).

###########################
THE THINGS YOU GET TO KEEP:
###########################

01. Your last level and stats,  yes if  you  completed  the  game  with all
    characters at say...  Level 99,  you get to keep all those lovelies  at
    Level 99 in NG+.

    And yes,  the characters that are yet to be recruited will also  retain
    their level.  

02. All items, accessories, and equipments.

03. Oh! And Vitaes...

04. Plus all your money too... Yeah I almost forgot about it *snickers!*

#######################
WHAT YOU CAN DO IN NG+:
#######################

01. Challenge yourselves in the newly  opened "Mysteria Ruins,"  yeah  when
    I say "challenge" I MEAN IT,  you  will  be  mentally  and   physically
    challenged,  top that with loads of cussing/swearing and bucketloads of
    frustration cause if I am not wrong if you leave the Ruins at any given
    floors you&#39;ll have to start back again at Square One! I could be wrong?
    And  it&#39;s  your  job to correct me,  cause I was all "DAMN IT!  I&#39;m not
    going back up there again"  cause I left the Ruins on the 2nd floor  to
    take a ~*Piss*~. And I believe the Ruins have about 20 Floors?

02. Play over Wi-Fi; no need explanation, also because I don&#39;t Wi-Fi,  it&#39;s
    a waste of time...  No, actually I&#39;m just a bitter person cause I don&#39;t
    have access to Wi-Fi at home and all  hotspots  in  my  area  denied me
    entry into their network;  do you have to be over 18 to access Wi-Fi or
    what? Damn, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi = Waffles! Hmmmmm! :9

03. Partake  in "Intermission" you know you want to; you get to see Lucia&#39;s
    in  a  "Hot  Spring,"  all  you  crazy  fangirls  can see Alph and Leon
    shirtless and you can learn  a  thing or two on how  to  be a  ... from
    Nikolai.  And  out of all these "Intermission Ending&#39;s" I prefer Vivi&#39;s
    the best. Oh! You actually start from where you left off, so if  you&#39;ve
    Lucia&#39;s heart at half-full, fill it all UP, UP, UP!

04. Spend all your money on stupid things like "ViTonics" and "CatHoods" or
    go  to  the  "Witch Village" and get all the Vitaes appraised... You&#39;re
    rich  and  famous, now lead the lifestyle of a spendthrift, yeah I said
    it.

05. Play all over  again  from "scratch!" Yeah, the developers all think it
    would  be  funny  to let you go through the game again albeit this time
    STRONGA THAN EVA!  I tell ya, you&#39;ll feel  like  you&#39;re GOD!  All   the
    baddies you come across will be like what? Lvl. 3 to 5 and here you are
    talking  a  stroll  in  the  park at Lvl. 99! (or insert your last high
    level here). PWNZ!

06. Gather  all  the  healers  in  the  game  and  position them in a 4 x 4
    formation and start  ~hEaLiNg~  each other,  for every ~mAgIc~ you cast
    you earn 30 Experience!   Be  careful  not  to overcast, or you&#39;ll find
    yourself  wrapped  in  a  ~*PrOtEcTiVe BaRriEr*~...   It&#39;s so bizarre I
    cannot explain this amazing phenomenon. Maybe you&#39;re loved?... :&#39;)

07. Do you know you get to listen to  all  the  BGM and Voice-Acting in the
    game? I suggest you go to EXTRA > LOAD A SAVE FILE > SOUND TEST > VOICE
    now scroll over to number... 

    #1624: On repeat
    #1617: Awww! I feel sooo HaWwT!~~ Wooo~
    #1615: On repeat.
    #1614: This is better than the "F" word.
    #1602: -
    #1542: I played this in public, and everyone stared at me :X
    #1157: On repeat please.
    #1106: GOLD!
  
    AND the only Music worth playing is #5.

Have fun :)

DEBATE CORNER [DC*]
###################

I  got bored,  so I compiled a couple of things that bothered me about  the
game:

DEBATE #01: WHO ARE YOU?!
And so it&#39;s  inevitable  that Lucia  had to use the  "Over Flash"  to  save
everyone and their mom from the menace that is Zehaal, the very same divine
entity  that  created  the  humans.  So  if  Zehaal created the humans, who
created  the planet?  And if the planet created the Witches,  WHO  ARE  THE
WITCHES?  Why are there no origin on all of these weird  things?  Maybe the
game  did  covered  these topics  in one of their lengthy conversations, or
perhaps in one of the town&#39;s library but I doubt it.

What? You don&#39;t know what&#39;s origin? It&#39;s something like where I come  from,
and what&#39;s my story.  So on and so forth.  Replying with something like  "I
come from my mother&#39;s womb" is invalid.

DEBATE #02: HOW IT ALL HAPPENED?
Everything has a beginning yah!?! It can&#39;t be that the planet sensed danger
and  decided to spawn out hot witches out of its core and then  go back  to
sleep right? And then the planet sensed danger again, and again the  planet
spawn out hot witches and go back to sleep. What gives? What kind of planet
make hot witches anyway?

DEBATE #03: WHO ARE YOU AGAIN?!
According to  Cecille she have memories of the PREVIOUS Twilight Witch thus
allowing her to remember things from the past,  something  like  1000 years
back that&#39;s quite a feat huh? But is also kind of dumb. Cause if you&#39;re not
gonna  elaborate any further than just  "It&#39;s  a  memory  from the previous
Witch," there&#39;s just no point mentioning it at all.

THIS IS NOT A DEBATE
Anyway,  a fellow gamer (Hai Xin Jiang)  e-mailed  me  one day asking about
something regarding L.A. I forgot what&#39;s the topic exactly but it spiralled
and mutated into a lot of things and topic.  It was so interesting  I  lost
about  a  week&#39;s  worth  of  sleep  cause  I  sat  in  front of my computer
refreshing my Inbox every 2 seconds expecting an e-mail from her to arrive.
But it never came I was so depressed I lost another week&#39;s worth of  sleep,
and nah I&#39;m just kidding! HAHAHA!

Now,  now,  don&#39;t be mad I seem to be goofing around a lot.  Yeah,  yeah we
were  talking about how Lucia suddenly appeared out of nowhere at the  end,
considering  the  fact  that  they  (the developers/creators/whoever it may
concerned) were obviously trying to make the players think Lucia&#39;s dead.

But our conversation mutated into something we can never figure out:

DEBATE #04: WHERE WERE YOU?! 
Where was Lucia the whole time (during the ending),  why the frickin&#39;  Hell
does everyone acted like Lucia&#39;s gone or something? And then Theo mentioned
about  how  Lucia  was  with  them the whole time. And then everyone gather
in the forest to have tea and crumpets,  AND  THEN  Lucia  appeared  asking
how&#39;s everyone?!

LET&#39;S TALK NONSENSE WITH DEFUNCT32:
Your opinion?  E-Mail me if you want,  if you&#39;re like us who are baffled by
this game&#39;s amazingness then please let us know,  we  don&#39;t  like being the
only one. All are welcome: Hate Mail, Love Mail, Diss Mail, Piss Mail,  the
only thing not allowed -- Junk Mail.

Okay! Bye.

Oh!  I almost forgot my E-Address,  you&#39;re probably lazy to scroll down all
the way, it&#39;s: defunct 32 let&#39;s talk nonsense @hotmail . com, NO SPACES AND
PLEASE  remove  "let&#39;s talk nonsense"  in the mailing address and put it in
the SUBJECT BOX instead, thank you!

...........................................................................

   E  X  T  R  A  S  [03^]

   Welcome  to  the EXTRAS section of the FAQ,  you&#39;ll  see  a full list of
   Spells, Skills and Flash Drives  to name a few, the only thing I did not
   cover is VITAES IMBUING, I think a fellow gamer already got that covered
   and besides,  no offense,  who imbues anyway?  I know I didn&#39;t and don&#39;t
   try to convince me otherwise. ._.

...........................................................................

############
SPELLS [SP$]
############

Each  and  every  one  of the characters in L.A. will have a set of special
skills  and/or magic, these are gained by leveling up. So it pays to  level
grind, you will be killing so many birds with one stone:

 o Money, money, money.
 o You get to be much stronger.
 o Gains new skills and magics.
 o Enjoy Intermission w/ characters.
 o Get Spoils/items, (save even more money).

Oh!  I&#39;ve  given this whole segment/section (Spells/Skills/etc) a new look,
it  look  more  "occupied"  now, the previous one felt kind of spacious and
empty. Hope you like it.

...........................................................................

 o CECILLE (PRIEST)
   Cecille  specializes in healing magic,  during her  Priestess days,  she
   only  had  one  offensive  spell;  Aqua.  As  you  would have guessed  a
   Priestess is not someone who should be  gung-hoing  at  the front  line,
   keep her  away  in the rear but close enough to be in range to heal  her
   comrades.  Her  last  three  slots (I think) are not really EMPTY, but I
   believe carries the same last three spells as Mel: Revive, Ice Crush and
   Salvation. But I didn&#39;t level Cecille as a Priestess long enough to know
   the outcome.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   Aid                Default             Revive             29
   Aqua               6                   EMPTY
   Cure               4                   EMPTY
   Heal               22                  EMPTY

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

 o TWILIGHT/DARK WITCH
   Being the Twilight Witch is in fact the best thing to happen to Cecille,
   among all the Witches in L.A. she&#39;s the only one (IMHO) to have a pretty
   amazing magic line-up. Her Culling spell will obliterate any foes in  an
   instant; provided her level is higher than the victim&#39;s.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   HealAll            Default             Abyss              Default
   Restore            Default             Magic UP           38
   Cure               Default             Culling            43
   Dark               Default             Nightfall          48

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

 o HEATH (ARC KNIGHT)
   Heath&#39;s  not  exactly a spellcaster, he&#39;s more of a skill user,  so  you
   won&#39;t see much. So please don&#39;t expect anything groundbreaking or out of
   this world magic from him.

   *Heath  will  leave the party due to unforseen circumstances,  but  will
    rejoin your company again together with Atk DOWN and Drang.

   NAME               LEVEL
   Sturm              Default
   Atk DOWN           Rejoin*
   Drang              Rejoin

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

 o NIKOLAI (SAVANT)
   Supporting the party is what Nikolai excel at! With all the  UP, UP,  UP
   in his magic list,  there&#39;s no doubt you&#39;d want to keep  Nikolai  around
   at  all  times...  THAT  if  you can tolerate his godawful voice-acting.
   Remember  that  scene  I told you earlier? Something about being trapped
   inside a burning building... Tell me about it?

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   Atk UP             Default             MindWipe           46
   Guard UP           Default             AssWipe            Just Kidding
   Speed UP           18
   Res UP             34

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

 o MEL (TORRENT/WATER WITCH)
   Mel&#39;s magic lies with water,  and water in Luminous Arc is the symbol of
   healing and rejuvenation,  so yeah you got it  Mel  have a fair share of
   both  offensive and healing spells at her disposal.  Salvation being her
   best  (healing) magic spell.  If Cecille were to stay as a Priestess w/o
   awakening her Witches power, both Mel and Cecille will probably have the
   same magic line-up.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   Aid                Default             Hail               30
   Aqua               Default             Revive             35
   Cure               Default             Ice Crush          40
   Heal               Default             Salvation          45

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

 o VIVI (SKY/WIND/SLUMBER WITCH)
   Vivi  sports  a  couple of both supportive & offensive spells though her
   lineup  may not be something to write home about.  Her  impressive speed
   and high movement range makes up for the lack of stellar magic  line-up.
   In other words just use her as a decoy to lure and trap your enemies.

   Vivi also excels at being lazy.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   WindSlash          Default             Speed UP           32
   Tech UP            Default             Spd DOWN           37
   Venom              Default             RageWind           42
   Gale               Default             Tornado            47

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

 o LUCIA (DAWN/LIGHT WITCH)
   One thing to note about Lucia is that: she&#39;s isn&#39;t very good with  magic
   her offensive spells are weak, but her healing powers are something  you
   should be proud of. HealBomb and Revive are two of her best spells. Pair
   her up with Cecille and Mel and you&#39;ll have the T.S.H.O. TRINITY SISTERS
   HEALING ORGANIZATION  specializing  in top-notch,  high-quality  healing
   aids for everyone and their mom.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   Shine              Default             LightWave          28
   Aid                Default             HealBomb           35
   Shut Up!           20                  Revive             42
   Heal               20                  SunFlare           49

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

 o POLLON (KOOSANYA)
   Majority of  Pollon&#39;s  spells  are made up of offensive magic.  He&#39;s not
   really all that great magically.  And  I&#39;m kind of lazy trying to  level
   this f----r up! All his attack misses and don&#39;t try to tell me otherwise
   I ain&#39;t listening.

   Waste of my time and space. Screw this biatch!

   NAME               LEVEL
   Heatwave           Default
   Hail               Default
   Gale               Default
   VineGrab           Default

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

 o MAVI (NATURE/EARTH WITCH)
   Use Mavi for her fist not her magic.  She&#39;s really,  really weak in this
   department even borrowing the powers of  Mother Earth  doesn&#39;t earn  her
   much point or credit.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   Thorn              Default             DreamGas           32
   Guard UP           Default             Paralyze           37
   TechDOWN           Default             MindWipe           42
   VineGrab           Default             GaiaRage           47

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

 o CLAIRE (THUNDER WITCH)
   The only Witch to have the highest Magic Stat, she can deliver the  hurt
   with her spells if  you&#39;re facing against foes who have weak  resistance
   than dispatching them with Claire&#39;s magic is recommended.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   Sturm              Default             RES Down           Default
   Atk DOWN           Default             Heal               40
   Mag DOWN           Default             MagBlock           44
   Drang              Default             VoltStorm          48

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

 o VANESSA (IMMOLATION/FIRE WITCH)
   Vanessa&#39;s pretty much like Mavi but I&#39;d like to see her as a little more
   balanced between  magical and  offense (perhaps defense as well?)  she&#39;s
   quite the all-around individual. Her fire spells are pretty damaging.

   Though  sadly  you  don&#39;t get to use Vanessa much, cause she likes to do
   things  her  own way which results in her leaving your party a couple of
   times. By the time she returned, it&#39;s already almost the end of the game
   use her to go through the Mysteria Ruins instead.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   Flame              Default             Seduce             Default
   Atk UP             Default             Res UP             Default
   GuardDOWN          Default             AtkBlock           Rejoin
   Heatwave           Default             Hellfire           48

 o ALPH (RIFLEMAN)
   This  is  the  first  time  I&#39;ve heard of a RIFLEMAN class/job in an RPG
   usually  it&#39;s  either HUNTER/GUNNER or something like that, but RIFLEMAN
   sounds kind of... odd? Anyway! Seeing from his skill set there&#39;s "RIFLE"
   "SHOTGUN"  and  "MAGNUM"  so  from  here  we can conclude: Alph actually
   carries  around  3  types  of  gun/rifle/whatever  whenever he goes into
   battle? Interesting... Imagine the weight he has to shoulder?!

   RIFLE  is GOOD at the beginning of the game, but as the story progresses
   other  gun  skills  will take its place, SHOTGUN for example is great if
   you&#39;re  trying  to  hurt  the  enemy  who are formed in a + shape, while
   MAGNUM  deals  a  medium to large amount of HP to a single target. Quite
   a  variety  but not really a whole lot. Since Alph is the main character
   and is not removable might as well make good use of the guy right?

   Where  it  says  "EMPTY,"  he will not gain any skills. It&#39;s meant to be
   for the new class to take over.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   Rifle              3                   Flechette          23
   Chasm              8                   EMPTY
   Shotgun            13                  EMPTY
   Magnum             18                  EMPTY

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

 o RYM HERO
   Accompanying  all of Alph&#39;s previous gun skills are "RymShld," "RymCure"
   and  "RymWall" the 3 Special Rym Hero&#39;s Skills. RYMSHLD protects an ally
   from  physical attack for 3 turns, RYMCURE heals for a massive amount of
   HP  and  RYMWALL  prevents any incoming magic attack. Cool? I thought it
   was dull and mediocre. So much for being the Rym Hero, Alph.

   NAME               LEVEL
   RymShld            Default
   RymCure            37
   RymWall            41

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

 o THEO (ARCHER/RYM GUARDIAN)
   ............. No matter how many words I try to string together, I still
   cannot  form  a  sentence  to describe the Skills this guy possessed. Ok
   let&#39;s  start  with FOCUS if my memory is still fresh FOCUS is actually a
   normal  physical  attack  but WITH INCREASED DAMAGE, That&#39;s it. I forgot
   what  TRICKSHOT  does, while FIRSTAID may sound helpful it&#39;s more suited
   for gaining EXP for Theo. Most of the time when I have this guy around I
   only  use  him  for  back  up  and  to provide items for any of my other
   characters who may in need of VitaMints etc.

   Even when he transformed into a RYM GUARDIAN Theo still sucks.

   AIMING, PURESHOT, RPDBREAK and BROSWORD are just fillers.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   Focus              4                   Aiming             28
   TrickShot          10                  PureShot           34
   FirstAid           16                  RpdBreak           40
   StunShot           22                  BroSword           46

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

 o LEON (FIGHTER/SWORDMASTER)
   Leon  is one of the strongest melee fighter you&#39;ll ever have in Luminous
   Arc  Skills  like CHARGE, X-SLASH. FPCHARGE and HOUNDCLAW are deadly, my
   favourite combination is always CHARGE + X-SLASH during the early stages
   of  the  game,  when  you&#39;ve reached level 38 that&#39;s when you&#39;ll replace
   X-SLASH  with  the  most  damaging skill exclusively to Leon only... THE
   HOUNDCLAW.  Even  better when you fully charge your FP with FPCHARGE and
   then  activating  the  CHARGE skill and unleash that together with "BURN
   DRIVE" = CRAZY DAMAGE.

   I&#39;m  not  sure  if effects will stack, but you can try CHARGE + ATK UP +
   X-SLASH/HOUNDCLAW or FD&#39;S BURN DRIVE.

   SKYFIRE, BREAKTHRU & FINALREST are useless.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   Charge             Default             FinalRest          26
   Breakthru          6                   FPCharge           36
   X-Slash            11                  HoundClaw          41
   SkyFire            16

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

 o HEATH (ARC. KNIGHT)
   Heath&#39;s  HolyPride  skill  gotta be the best it&#39;s like the spell "Mighty
   Guard" from the  FF series, his ability to skew through two enemies in a
   row and decent stats are all awesome.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   PwrThrust          6                   HolyPride          45
   PileBunker         8
   Crusader           Rejoin
   Protector          Rejoin

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

 o SAKI (NINJA)
   FireCard,  VoltCard,  SpdJutsu?  What&#39;s  all  these? Saki&#39;s in my humble
   opinion  is one of the most useless characters in the game saves for her
   speed  and  ability  to attack two panels away. Now tell me this: what&#39;s
   the point of casting SpdJutsu when you&#39;re already ahead of everyone? And
   what&#39;s  the  purpose of FireCard/Voltcard   when you&#39;re never originally
   magic inclined? Burn in Hell Saki!

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   FireCard           Default             TechJutsu          25
   VoltCard           Default             Mugen              31
   SpdJutsu           Default
   ChiStrike          17

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

 o NIKOLAI (SAVANT)
   Nikolai is more apt at supporting the party than being offensive, though
   I give credit for his range attack and high damage. You&#39;ll find yourself
   using his Support Skills more than anything else.

   NAME               LEVEL
   Eye Shot           Default
   HeadShot           23
   BloodShot          39

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

 o POLLON (KOOSANYA)
   I don&#39;t wanna talk about it.

   NAME               LEVEL
   Banzai!            Default
   OH YEAH!           36

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

 o KAI (SAMURAI)
   Just  think of Kai as a better version of that horrible Saki, in term of
   battle  Kai&#39;s way superior in my humble opinion though I am not too fond
   of his skills variety.

   NAME               LEVEL               NAME               LEVEL
   Ittou              Default             Sanpoin            Default
   Senkogeki          Default
   Kagebana           Default
   Maizuru            Default

FLASH DRIVE [FD$]

Flash Drive are like the Final Fantasy series&#39; "limit break" there will  be
a bar that you will need to fill up before you can execute the Drive,  also
new  FDs  are earned by leveling up. To fill up your bar, you either  WAIT,
or KILL an opponent this is what I&#39;ve noticed so far. (can anyone  verify?)

PLAYER&#39;S STRATEGY [PS$]

Regarding: Leveling Up Strategy [LS&]
.....................................

1. Go to Leastre Bridge. (I think that&#39;s the name)

2. Choose  8  of  your party members, i would choose 4 healers (Mel, Lucia,
   Cecille, Theo) and then the rest is up to you. But BRING 8 PEOPLE.

3. Lead your 4 fighters to the front, blocking the enemies entrance to your
   spammin&#39; healers.

4. Healers - Heal for Levels, Fighters - Fight for....um..levels?

5. Heal. Your. Enemies. This gives you more time to keep on healing, gain
   more levels.

Regarding: Leveling Up Guide [LU&]
..................................

Hi!  I just finished reading your guide for Luminous Arc =D and I&#39;d like to
contribute  a  little  &#39;strategy&#39;  (for  lack  of  a better word) for level
grinding, if it&#39;s ok with you!
 
Well,  here&#39;s what I do.  I  stay  in  the  battle map  and leave aside one
near-death enemy and have a buff party. This can happen in any battle, both
world map and chapter battles. However for attackers (Alph, Leon, Kai) with
no  or  lame  buffs, they have to fight. So choose a noob map, with enemies
that  you  can  OHKO  with  normal attack (don&#39;t use skills, it wastes time
scrolling through the menus and sometimes the game lags bad!).  The minimum
exp  gained  on KO is 6. So for example, if you&#39;re level 40, lvl 35 and lvl
20  enemies have no exp difference.  However,  you  may not OHKO the lvl 35
ones, so don&#39;t waste double the time.
 
1) For pre-RymHero Alph, he should repeatedly solo a map. He&#39;s the ONLY one
   with  no  buffs so he should have more priority. After he changes class,
   he can spam RymCure on someone. His MP should be enough for 3 or 4 casts
   (can&#39;t remember),  and  that&#39;s near one level. When he&#39;s less than 30exp
   TNL, use MagiMint to give him 5exp each time until he levels up.

2) Theo can spam FirstAid. When he&#39;s
