******************************************************************************* Cosmosphere Guide Ar Tonelico II: Melody of Metafalica By: Cyril [Stephanie Nutter] Last Updated: February 14th, 2009 Version: .7 ******************************************************************************* This is a guide that assists with levels of the Cosmosphere for all four characters that are available for diving. There may be minor spoilers in the FAQ section and in the side information in later levels of each girl's Cosmosphere. I will not be discussing the storyline or plot information. This guide is here to help you if you're stuck and can not continue, to point out hidden scenes and paths, and to give you a general idea of how many Dive Points are required to complete the level. ******************************************************************************* [Table of Contents] ******************************************************************************* 1.

Conclusion [cnclde] ******************************************************************************* The Cosmosphere in the Ar Tonelico universe is the "soulspace" where someone who is close to a Reyvateil can enter to get to know her, help solve her internal conflicts, and learn stronger Song Magic to help in battle. In Ar Tonelico 2,you are given three new characters to "Dive" into to learn more about and help them mature. If you're looking for a certain level, you can use the Control+F function and use the codes in the Table of Contents in each section. Alternatively, you can also type in "[Character Name] [Cosmosphere Level]" or "Luca 2" to help you easily find each section. ******************************************************************************* Frequently Asked Questions ******************************************************************************* [frasqu] This is a section devoted to questions that I see pop up most frequently about each Cosmosphere. Question 1: Can I finish all of the Cosmospheres in one game? [fcs1g] Question 2: What does the decision in Phase 1 determine? [ph1ch] Question 3: How and when do I access the Fourth Cosmosphere? [4csac] Question 4: How many endings are there? How do I lock an ending? [enaml] Question 5: Can you give me information on the Third Reyvateil?

[cllci] Question 8: Why can't I complete Luca's level 1 Cosmosphere? [ll1cs] Question 9: Do I really need to buy the dress from young Luca in level 9? [50kdp] Question 10: Why didn't I get a costume for completing a Cosmosphere? [cscos] Question 11: Where do I get Luca and Cloche's last outfits? [lccst] Question 12: I need help with Talk Topics! [talkt] ----------------------------------- Question: Can I finish all of the Cosmospheres in one game? [fcs1g] ----------------------------------- Answer: Nope. Unlike in the first Ar Tonelico game you can only finish one of the three main Reyvateil's Cosmospheres. It's actually more realistic to finish only one, since Croix is devoting himself to one woman rather than being promiscuous with all three. ----------------------------------- Question: What does the decision in Phase 1 determine? [ph1ch] ----------------------------------- Answer: The decision in Phase 1 immediately locks you out one of the endings. If you choose Luca, you'll be locked out of Cloche's ending. If you choose Cloche, you'll never be able to complete Luca's Cosmosphere. Whichever girl that you don't choose will stay at level 5 and Croix will automatically tell her "no" once you reach the end of their level 5 Cosmosphere. Other than Cosmospheres, the decision influences the entire set of events in Phase 2 and which Reyvateil you use in Phase 1 and 2. The main game after Phase 2 is not altered significantly. ----------------------------------- Question: How and when do I access the Fourth Cosmosphere? [4csac] ----------------------------------- Answer: The Fourth Cosmosphere is an entirely optional Cosmosphere that has no impact on the ending. You can complete this Cosmosphere without having to worry about your relationship with the other girls. It is just as the third Reyvateil says: it's just for fun. You can only access this Cosmosphere right before the final boss of the game, which is after the Raki fight that is known for glitching and after a certain scene that has the Third Reyvateil speaking with someone from the Tower of Eoria. After this, head back to the Hot Spot and watch a scene, which will give you access to the Cosmosphere. What do you get for completing it? The most powerful Combo Magic in the game, Phantasmagoria, and some extra costumes for Luca and Cloche. It's also fun to complete if you've played the original Ar Tonelico. ----------------------------------- Question: How many endings are there? How do I lock an ending? [enaml] ----------------------------------- Answer: There are four endings in all. One with Luca, one with Cloche, one with the third Reyvateil, and a neutral ending. To "lock" an ending, you must choose "yes" in one girl's level 5 Cosmosphere. This sets your "devotion" to a character and once you choose this girl, you can not proceed further than level 5 in the other two Cosmospheres. To get the fourth ending, you must not choose to protect any of the three girls by either telling them all "no" or just not proceeding beyond level 5 in their Cosmosphere. It's possible to get 3 endings in one playthrough if you wait until right before the final boss to complete the Cosmospheres of choice. The ones you can get in one playthrough are your choice of Luca and Cloche (determined by your Phase 1 choice), the Third Reyvateil, and the Neutral fourth ending. In order to get all three, you'll need separate save files. ----------------------------------- Question: Can you give me information on the Third Reyvateil? [rtjac] ----------------------------------- Answer: The Third Reyvateil is not just a character added "for the hell of it." She is actually a very important character in the Ar Tonelico Universe. The Third Reyvateil joins you near the very end of Phase 1 and you can get an ending with her if you choose to dive beyond level 5 in her Cosmosphere. She's the hardest Reyvateil to get the ending for, since she requires 5 talk topics to proceed beyond to level 8 with. Her level 8 Cosmosphere is also the one that is likely to cause you a good deal of problems because of the lack of talk topics. She is the strongest Reyvateil in the game with the most powerful Red Magic. If you're interested in her backstory, play through Ar Tonelico 1. Only the first five levels of her Cosmosphere are the "game" type. ----------------------------------- Question: Why do you get talk topics more quickly for the Reyvateil you didn't choose in Phase 1? [gatt1] ----------------------------------- Answer: Play through Phase 2 and you'll find out why. You're required to use the Reyvateil that you did not pick in Phase 1, therefore you'll end up with more talk topics for her than the Reyvateil that you chose to protect. To get 100% on all talk topics with Cloche and Luca, you need to pick both routes in either a separate save file or a new game. ----------------------------------- Question: How do I complete Cloche's or Luca's level 7 Cosmosphere? [cllci] ----------------------------------- Answer: You need to complete the Infelsphere. In other words, you need to be in at least Phase 5. They also require certain events to have passed in Phase 5 to complete it. ----------------------------------- Question: Why can't I complete Luca's level 1 Cosmosphere? [ll1cs] ----------------------------------- Answer: You must complete Cloche's level 1 Cosmosphere in order to pass Luca's level 1 Cosmosphere. Did you just rush through the events at the very beginning where Cloche wanted to get new magic and not complete her Cosmosphere? ----------------------------------- Question: Do I really need to buy the dress from young Luca in level 9? [50kdp] ----------------------------------- Answer: Yes, you do need to spend 50,000 DP on the dress in Luca's level 9 Cosmosphere. However, because DP are so easy to obtain in this game, just Guard your Reyvateil's effectively and you should easily hit 50,000 in just the course of the normal game. Even though the game says CRASH after this, you'll still be able to finish the Cosmosphere. ----------------------------------- Question: Why didn't I get a costume for completing a Cosmosphere? [cscos] ----------------------------------- Answer: You need to clear a Cosmosphere to get a costume. Therefore, for the girl you didn't choose in Phase 1 will never get her fifth level Costume and if you don't devote yourself to the Third Reyvateil you'll never get her level 5 costume, either. If you decline a girl at level 5 by telling her "it's better to be friends," you may still be able to get the costume at level 5, but not if the game automatically declines for you. ----------------------------------- Question: Where do I get Luca and Cloche's last outfits? [lccst] ----------------------------------- Answer: Luca and Cloche's final outfits are obtained in the Fourth Cosmosphere, which is accessed right before the end of the game. ----------------------------------- Question: I need help with Talk Topics! [talkt] ----------------------------------- Answer: That is not what this guide is for. However, there's a nice talk topic guide on http(colon)//weezy.freeforums(dot)org that may help you. At a later point, a guide may be posted on GameFAQs as well, but at the time of posting this, there is no talk topic guide. I can give you some general tips, though. Continue through the game. Many talk topics are just found automatically as you go through the game. Synthesize! Make everything you possibly can as soon as possible and even spend time devoted to synthesis. That means entering and exiting the shops, fighting battles, and coming back. This will probably one of the fastest ways to get talk topics. Wear every costume you get on a new level, that's always a free talk topic after a few battles with it on. Don't rush the game! There are talk topics that have a very small amount of time to watch, so make sure that you check your menu periodically after every scene to see if you have an open topic. The girl's face in the bottom left corners will show if you have a topic to see with them or not. If they are colored, there's a topic, if they aren't, there is no topic to see. Unless you completely rush the game, the only level you should have any problems with is the Third Reyvateil's level 8 Cosmosphere. ******************************************************************************* Cosmosphere Guide ******************************************************************************* [gncsgd] This is a general guide to the Cosmospheres. This is not meant to be used as a script. The information in this section will tell you the required DP necessary and any "optional" DP you can spend. Also, I suggest you bring at least 10% more DP than what is necessary to complete a level in case you want to see optional scenes ----------------------------------- Required or Optional? ----------------------------------- Certain scenes in different levels of the Cosmosphere open up a few "stars" all over the map. To find which one is the "right" one, you'll want to check the amount of "Stars" (1/3, 2/3, 3/3) of importance. If they're all 3/3 Stars in "Importance," then look for the one with the highest DP cost. If they're all the same, then just explore and you'll eventually trigger a scene. ----------------------------------- Optional Scenes? ----------------------------------- Scenes with 0 stars of importance are considered completely optional scenes. When running around a Cosmosphere, you may notice an area that isn't starred with an event that has a high DP cost. These have optional events that give a tidbit of information about the girl you're in. ----------------------------------- Why did I get kicked out? ----------------------------------- There are three reasons you can get kicked out of a CS. One: At level 5, you've already chosen to protect another girl. If you've devoted yourself to one girl, you can't pass level 5 in another girl's Cosmosphere. Two: You picked the wrong option when given a choice. Three: You ran out of DP on an event that requires DP to continue. When you see CLEAR! in red words, you'll notice DP deducated from your total. If you run out of DP during an event, your Reyvateil won't have enough strength to continue and you'll get kicked out. ----------------------------------- Any fast way to make DP? ----------------------------------- Learn to Guard. Seriously. Once you can get consistent A and S ranks, you'll have more DP than you know what to do with. If you're having trouble, use Girl Power with Guard ++, +++, or ++++ to help you perform Perfects. ----------------------------------- DPs Varying? ----------------------------------- Depending on options you choose, some Cosmosphere levels may take a good deal more DP than what is the "minimum." It may not effect your actions now, but just a bit later in the same level you may get a more expensive or cheaper CLEAR! cost. Because of this, you'll always want to bring quite a bit more DP with you than what would be the "minimum" cost. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ - Luca's Cosmosphere - ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ [luccos] Luca's Cosmosphere Level 1: [lccs1] Luca's Cosmosphere Level 2: [lccs2] Luca's Cosmosphere Level 3: [lccs3] Luca's Cosmosphere Level 4: [lccs4] Luca's Cosmosphere Level 5: [lccs5] Luca's Cosmosphere Level 6: [lccs6] Luca's Cosmosphere Level 7: [lccs7] Luca's Cosmosphere Level 8: [lccs8] Luca's Cosmosphere Level 9: [lccs9] =============================================================================== [Luca 1: Invadable Territory] =============================================================================== [lccs1] Required DP: 95 Event DP: 10 or 15 Optional DP: 0 Total DP: 110-115 Costume: None Song Magic: Smiley Girl, Snow Firefly - Cherry Town: 10DP - Flower Garden: 5DP, Stonehenge: 5DP, Rest Stop: 5DP - Any one of three required - Requires 10DP to Clear Stonehenge, 15 for Rest Stop and Flower Garden - RED MAGIC: [Hidden Enchant: LV 1A] "Smiley Girl" Learned. - Flower Garden: 20DP - RED MAGIC: [Chilling Song: LV 2] "Snow Firefly" Learned. - Flower Garden: 50DP - Stonehenge: 10DP You can not clear Luca's level 1 Cosmosphere until you clear Cloche's level 1. This is a frequent problem that people seem to come across when starting the game for the first time. Cloche's first level Cosmosphere is a part of the main storyline. If you're going for the cheapest DP cost, go to Stonehenge when given three options. =============================================================================== [Luca 2: Cubicrusade] =============================================================================== [lccs2] Required DP: 495 Event DP: 210-990 Optional DP: 0-10 Total DP: 715, 1045, or 1495 Costume: Stylishy Song Magic: Brilliant Ring, Snowy Flower - M's Coffee Shop: 20DP - Optional scene at M's Coffee Shop: 5DP - Stonehenge: 40DP - BLUE MAGIC: [Soft Tune Heal: LV 2] "Brilliant Ring" Learned. - Optional scene at M's Coffee Shop: 5DP - M's Coffee Shop: 45DP - Wall?: 30DP - Requires 50DP to Clear. - M's Coffee Shop: 50DP - Requires 100DP to Clear. - Stonehenge: 50DP - M's Coffee Shop: 70DP - Stonehenge: 60DP - You're given three choices: - "Take the Wall Down."

Choosing the wrong option the first time costs you a whopping 790DP! =============================================================================== [Luca 3: A World in a Chest] =============================================================================== [lccs3] Required DP: 965 Event DP: 280-840 Optional DP: 0-1020 Total DP: 1245-1985 Costume: Lady Emperor Song Magic: No Problem, Rolling Riceball, Easy Fullcourse - Eastern Village: 50DP - Optional scene at Western Village: 10DP - Western Village: 50DP - Optional scene at Eastern Village: 10DP - Maiden's House: 100DP - End of the World: 15DP - You're given an option to help or not help.

Neither choice takes DP yet, but which one you choose determines how much DP is required for the next event. Choosing "Don't fight if you need to." is the cheaper route. - Nightsun Castle: 220DP - Requires 50DP to Clear if you chose "Don't fight if you need to." - Requires 450DP if you chose "I want to fight with Luca." - RED MAGIC: [Hidden Enchant: LV 2A] "Lady Momoyo" Learned. - Luca's House: 230DP - Stonehenge: 140DP =============================================================================== [Luca 5: Deep Mind Invasion] =============================================================================== [lccs5] Required DP: 1670 Event DP: 1600 Optional DP: 500 Total DP: 3270-3770 Costume: Assault Pain Song Magic: Thorn Princess, Receptionist Rumble - Opening: 700DP - End of the World: 170DP - Optional Scene at End of the World: 170DP - West Fields: 150DP - Optional Scene at West Fields: 50DP - Eastern Hills: 150 DP - You're given a choice here, neither option requires DP. It doesn't seem to alter any decisions or DP cost on the level, either. - Flower Field: 150DP - Stonehenge: 150DP - You're given a choice. What you choose does not have an immediate effect, but the next scene will be altered. - "Give her your Seeds" Makes it so that Croix has the least seeds. - "Don't do anything." Will make Cloche have the least seeds. - Mountain Lodge: 200DP - This locale only opens up once you've spoken to Young Luca in the Flower Field, Cloche in Stonehenge, and Luca in the Eastern Hills. - If you didn't give Cloche any seeds in the last decision, she'll have the least amount of seeds and you'll get a CG with her. - If you did give Cloche some seeds, Croix will end up with the least seeds and you'll see a different CG. - End of the World: 230DP - Requires 600DP to Clear. - RED MAGIC: [Hidden Enchant LV 3A] "Thorn Princess" Learned. - Optional scenes at West Fields, Eastern Hills, and the Flower Field for 150 DP each. - Mountain Lodge: 300DP - Requires 300DP to Clear. - RED MAGIC: [Super Potential LV 1A] "Receptionist Rumble" Learned. - End of the World: 170DP - Stonehenge: 330DP -The decision here is the one that determines whether or not you want Luca's ending. If you're not given a decision, that means you chose Cloche's route in Phase 1. If you deny Luca, you're stuck with the Third Reyvateil or the neutral ending. If you accept Luca, you lock out the chance for the Third Reyvateil and Neutral ending. If you're not sure which ending you want, you can save this decision as long as you want by choosing "Let me think about it." That doesn't count as denying or accepting and you can come back later if you want to try for a different ending and then Luca's. Depending on your decision with Cloche about the seeds, you'll get a different CG. If Croix has the least seeds, you'll get a CG with Croix and Luca, but if Cloche has the least seeds you'll get something much, much different. Which is the better scene? Well, that's up to you. The scene with Croix is fluff filled while the scene with Cloche involves Luca's bondage outfit. You can not clear Luca's level 5 Cosmosphere unless you choose her path in Phase 1. I also suggest not clearing it right away, as you may change your mind once you meet the Third Reyvateil. Because you can only devote yourself to one female, choosing Luca will prevent you from finishing the Third Reyvateil's Cosmosphere. You can wait as long as you like, even until right before the final battle. I suggest you do that, since that way you can get Luca's ending, the Neutral ending, and the Thierd Reyvateil ending all in one game. =============================================================================== [Luca 6: To Love in Truth] =============================================================================== [lccs6] Required DP: 810 Event DP: 460-1770 Optional DP: 1365 Total DP: 1270-3945 Costume: Sorcerer Maria Song Magic: Sweet Incense - Optional Scene at the Tower of Life: 600DP - This is a fun little scene that tells you more about Luca. - Optional scene at the D-Point: 50DP - Witch's House: 300DP - Optional scene at Witch's House: 5DP - Optional scene at Sunset Volcano: 10DP - Optional scene at Mountain Lodge: 150DP - Optional Scene at Rubble Plains: 150DP - Red Forest: 150DP - You're given two options: - "Yes." Requires no DP. - "No, it's not like that."

Requires 140DP to Clear. - "Was I being tricked?" Requires 760DP to Clear. This level automatically ends. =============================================================================== [Luca 7: Absolute Girlfriend] =============================================================================== [lccs7] Required DP: 2550 Event DP: 770-940 Optional DP: 220 Total DP: 3320-3710 Costume: Venus Torial Song Magic: Flying Clog - Optional scene at the Tower of Life: 100DP - Optional scene at D-Point: 70DP - North City: 150DP - Requires 320DP to Clear. - RED MAGIC: [Easy Chorus: LV 3A] "Flying Clog" Learned. - Ancient Prison: 350DP - There are four options this time, none require DP but your choice does not seem to affect the rest of the level. - "How she locked little Luca up in Jail." - "How she's always trying to look good." This seems to be the correct answer. Luca scolds you if you pick the others. - "How she was a schemer." - "Nothing." - Divine Altar: 200DP - South City: 270DP - Ambition Strand: 300DP - You're given two options: - "Help Cocona." Requires 400DP to Clear and 50DP for the later part. - "Just watch." Requires no DP, but it's pretty heartless. However, if you choose this option, Ambition Strand requires 620 DP to clear. This is actually the more expensive option. - Requires 620DP or 50DP to Clear. 620DP if you chose to let Cocona die and 50DP if you helped her. - Ancient Prison: 200DP - Optional scene at Ancient Prison: 50DP - Stonehenge: 340DP - You will not be able to access this scene until you've reached Phase 5. If you're at Phase 5 already, proceed through the Phase a bit first and you'll be allowed to proceed. - Ancient Prison: 300DP - Divine Altar: 440DP You can not clear this level Cosmosphere until Phase 5. If you try before then, you won't be able to find what Luca is looking for. =============================================================================== [Luca 8: Blank Score Lullaby] =============================================================================== [lccs8] Required DP: 3410 Event DP: 1100 Optional DP: 100 Total DP: 4510-4610 Costume: Bathgirl Song Magic: Crylady, Clearnight Bell - Optional Scene at D-Point: 50DP - Tower of Life: 150DP - Divine Altar: 390DP - Optional scene at the Divine Altar: 50DP - Home of Nostalgia: 200DP - Tower of Life: 200DP - RED MAGIC: [Hidden Enchant: LV 1B] "Crylady" Learned. - Home of Nostalgia: 400DP - Requires 400DP for Clear. - Stonehenge: 440DP - D-Point: 340DP - Home of Nostalgia: 330DP - Requires 700DP for Clear. - Tower of Life: 450DP - BLUE MAGIC: [Soft Tune Heal: LV 3] "Clearnight Bell" Learned. - Divine Altar: 500DP - Stonehenge: 10DP Compared to the others, this is an incredibly straightforward level. =============================================================================== [Luca 9: Love can be Shame] =============================================================================== [lccs9] Required DP: 4,850 Event DP: 50,000 Optional DP: 2,050 Total DP: 54,850-57,000 Costume: Vow Song Magic: Gaea, Loveydov, Meteor Shine, Reception Lights - Optional scene at the Tower of Life: 2,000DP - This is another cute little scene about Luca's secrets. - RED MAGIC: [Super Potential: LV 3A] "Gaea" Learned. - Luca's House: 520DP - You're given a choice almost immediately: - "Hold Her" will automatically end your trip into the Cosmosphere and you'll need to re-enter.

If you look at Cloche's Talk Topic list on the menu, it now states that her level 3 is "4," so you don't need any additional topics.

Once you devote yourself to her you'll see her true world. Also, unlike the other Cosmospheres, you'll be doing fighting in the earlier levels, but only with Luca and Cloche. Your preferred magic will most likely be Luca's Lady Momoyo or Receptionist Rumble.

I suggest using Lady Momoyo for how powerful she is at low Burst Percentages and because you'll automatically extract to her. If you have Receptionist Rumble at this point, she will probably be a better choice.

It's the same as the others, so just wait 4 or so rounds and finish her off! - RED MAGIC: [My Slaves: LV 4] "Demon's Dance" Learned. AFTER RE-ENTRY: - Stonehenge: 250DP - This is where you make your decision on if you wish to lock Jacqli's ending or not. Like any other Cosmosphere, you can only clear this level 5 if you've not devoted yourself to any of the other female characters. This is, if you want to finish Jacqli's level 5, you need to reject the girl you chose during Phase 1, or simply not accept them and choose "Let me decide." when finishing their level 5 Cosmosphere. After you've chosen, head back into the level and speak with Ayatane in order to continue to level 6, or to reject Jacqli. Jacqli's is the hardest Cosmosphere in the game to complete because her later levels require 5 talk topics. Level 8 usually ends up as extremely problematic for players. Jacqli is also the only character you can reach 100% Talk Topics with in a single game. =============================================================================== [Jacqli 6: Fragment of Mind] =============================================================================== [jacs6] Required DP: 1,660-1,810 Event DP: 700-1,050 Optional DP: 400 Total DP: 2,360-3,260 Costume: Lady Drape Song Magic: None - Optional scene at the Boys' Dormitory: 200DP - This is a fun scene to see, especially if you've played the first game. - Doll Shop: 170DP - Downtown: 220DP - Requires 700DP to Clear. - Optional scene at the Doll Shop: 100DP - Silver Horn: 330DP - You're given a choice: - "Call for Help." Requires 350DP to Clear. - "Go along with it." Requires no DP to Clear. - In the Classroom, there's another choice. Which of these you choose determines the temporary scenario for this level, not level 7. No matter which you choose, you still end up going to the same place. Of the two, the one that makes more sense would be choosing "Agree to help." but it doesn't matter, really. - "Agree to help." If you choose this, you'll go assist Miros. - "End things here." If you choose this, Jacqli will come help you. - Sea of Nam: 340DP - Optional scene at the Doll Shop: 100DP Depending on if you chose to Help Miros or told her no, you'll go to different places for this last scene. - If you helped Miros, you'll go to the Silver Horn. - Silver Horn: 300DP - Stonehenge: 300DP - If you helped Jacqli, you'll go to the School Gate. - School Gate: 150DP - Silver Horn: 300DP - Stonehenge: 300DP The path after level 6 splits into two, Crime and Punishment, based on your decision with Harmonius. Crime is probably the better of the two to start with, as you get a new costume at level 7-C. The ONLY decision that changes the later levels is who you give Harmonius to, not which of the girls you side with during the middle portion of this level. You will eventually have to play through both 7-C and 7-P once you get access to level 8. ******************************************************************************* ******************************************************************************* *****************************Very Important Note!****************************** [ch7cp] Depending on which option you chose at the end of Jacqli's Cosmosphere level 6, about Harmonius and helping either Jacqli or Miros, you'll reach a different level 7. You will have to eventually play through both once you reach level 8, that is, you clear one of the level 7s. Which do you choose first? It doesn't matter, but choosing Crime, or siding with Miros, may be a bit easier to help find the necessary Talk Topics for level 8. Miros' side also gives you a new costume, while Jacqli's only gives you an interesting optional cutscene about Ayatane. Once you've cleared one level 7, you'll hit level 8. At level 8, you'll be forced to replay Level 6 again and you then must choose the option that you did not the first time around. For example, if you choose Miros the first time with Harmonius, you must choose Jacqli the second time. Choosing Miros will lead to 7-Crime. Choosing Jacqli will lead to 7-Punishment. Once you've cleared the first level 6, a level 7, and the first events on level 8, you'll then be transported back to level 6 to finish the second 7 and then reach the "true" 8, which will allow you to finish the Cosmosphere. Here's an example, in case you still don't understand: Level 6 Cleared, Choose to assist Miros with Harmonius. Reach and Clear level 7-C. Reach level 8 and be sent back to level 6. Re-Clear level 6, but choosing the other option. In this case, Jacqli. Reach and Clear level 7-P. Reach the true level 8, where you'll finally be able to clear to level 9. ******************************************************************************* ******************************************************************************* =============================================================================== [Jacqli 7A: Crime] =============================================================================== [jcs7c] Required DP: 1,760 Event DP: 1,940 Optional DP: 0 Total DP: 3,700 Costume: Miros Song Magic: Glutomy, Pew, Heart's Prison - Opening - COMBO MAGIC: [Moody Girl: LV E] "Glutomy" Learned. - Cliff of Grief: 600DP - Requires 1,040DP to Clear. - BLUE MAGIC: [Pretty Medicine: LV 3] "Pew" Learned. - Silver Horn: 560DP - Requires 900DP to Clear. - BLUE MAGIC: [Darkside: LV 2] "Heart's Prison" Learned. - Cliff of Grief: 600DP The Crime Path is reached by choosing Miros on level 6. =============================================================================== [Jacqli 7B: Punishment] =============================================================================== [jcs7p] Required DP: 2,600 Event DP: 1,740 Optional DP: 300 Total DP: 4,340-4,740 Costume: None Song Magic: Bubbleba - Optional scene at the Tower of Life: 300DP - This is an interesting scene to see if you've played the first game. - Scaffold: 600DP - Sea of Nam: 500DP - Requires 700DP to Clear. - RED MAGIC: [Those Memories: LV 2] "Bubbleba" Learned. - Scaffold: 600DP -Requires 1,040DP to Clear. - Stonehenge: 500DP The Punishment Path is reached by choosing Jacqli on level 6. =============================================================================== [Jacqli 8: Escape from the Womb] =============================================================================== [jacs8] Required DP: 3,240 Event DP: 0 Optional DP: 0 Total DP: 3,240 Costume: Pure Ritual Song Magic: None - Doll Shop: 700DP - Sea of Nam: 740DP - Silver Horn: 600DP - Scaffold: 700DP - Stonehenge: 500DP You can only reach the true level 8 once you've completed both 7-C and 7-P. Jacqli's level 8 Cosmosphere is easily the hardest Cosmosphere in the game to reach. If you're having problems getting the five talk topics, you need to do the following: - There's an optional scene at Mikri Forest right before it "falls." By right before, I mean literally, before. You'll know when this is because Luca and Cloche go there and retreive a hairpin. There's a rock you need to examine that has a ! over Croix's head. This leads to a short set of optional events that will give you the talk topic. You'll also get Jacqli's last level 5 topic after this set of events. - Collect 80 I.P.Ds for Cloche's fanclub. This is the hardest of the bunch, but if you missed the topic in Mikri Forest, you're pretty much required to do this. You can even do this right before the final boss, so even if you didn't spend any time with Dive Therapy before this, you can still hit level 8. It may take a few hours of killing monsters to gain the influence of each girl, though. - Clear 7C or Clear 7P. Each one gives you a talk topic. 7P seems to give an extra topic since you can't get the Miros topic, as you don't have the costume if you went through Punishment before Crime. This is just there to balance out the two paths and their talk topics. - 7C and 7P also have a talk topic each with synthesis items. Clearing 7C will give you a topic if you've made the "Decorative Mail" armor at Skycat's restaurant. 7P will give you the talk topic about the Handmade Poncho, which is made at Sasha's General Store. - Wearing the Miros costume in a few battles and getting the costume topic. - Proceed through the game. After the song "Veena" and the events shortly after you'll get a talk topic. =============================================================================== [Jacqli 9: The Way Love Pierces] =============================================================================== [jacs9] Required DP: 3,500 Event DP: 1,000 Optional DP: 300 Total DP: 4,500-4,800 Costume: Dark Rose Song Magic: Ar tonelico, Lucid Slayer - Optional scene at the Doll Shop: 150DP - Optional scene Downtown: 150DP - Sea of Nam: 700DP - You're given an option at this point, but not really, since there's only one choice. - Chapel: 800DP - Classroom: 550DP - You're given a choice: - "Stab Miros."

You'll understand what it is when you reach the point that you can enter it. This Cosmosphere is like the first five levels of the Third Reyvateil's Cosmosphere in that it's a game within a game. You can only access this "cosmosphere" when you're right before the final boss. After the Third Reyvateil contacts someone from the Tower of Eoria and you fight against a familiar boss, after the Raki battle, head back into the Hot Spot where Reki is and you'll see a scene. This gives you access to the fourth Cosmosphere. There are a few critical differences between this Cosmosphere and the others. First: Diving into the Fourth Cosmosphere uses SP instead of DP. Second: Clearing this Cosmosphere will not change your ending at all. Third: If you pick the wrong option at any point in the Cosmosphere, you'll get a "Game Over" and be kicked from the Cosmosphere. Fourth: You get spells and costumes for all three of your Reyvateils. It is not just focused on one of them. Fifth: SP is not required for "CLEAR!" events, like in normal Cosmospheres. However, you'll probably have enough SP by the time this section is open that even if there were events, you'd have no problems. ****************************************************************************** Choices marked with a "*" are the correct choices.
