FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ There are just certain questions that keep coming up again and again and again about this game I want to make clear at the beginning. Remember, there is more guide after this section!!! Q. How do I change characters? A. To choose a character when you can (red dot missions), on the "YES NO BLACKSMITH" Screen, anywhere on that page press left or right to cycle through the characters. Q. I'm stuck on Misty Lake go for the goal (or another level with blue energy balls "Will o' Wisps") what do I do? A. To get rid of the Will o' Wisps, go into Soul Surge with the B button, and while in Soul Surge jerk the Nunchuk to do a kick. Doing this will set off reaction chains in this level and a few other levels too. Q. In some instances, like with sword duels and beating King Arthur, what do I do to pass it? A. Wait for the blue shaking Wii Remote to appear and well shake the wii remote at the correct time. Q. How do I get the World Rings? A. They are items you might receive in certain Legacy Levels, levels that are eventually unlocked like the rest. Here are their locations: Yellow: Molten Mine Green: Shrouded Forest Red: The Cauldron Blue: Titanic Plain Aqua: Knight's Passage White: Crystal Lake Purple: Dragon's Lair Q. What's the Golden Slime? A. Sometimes the slime dripping from the ceiling is gold, but very rarely! When I saw it, I touched it just in case. You get Flag 10 in the Gallery for finding it. Q. My sword doesn't harm robots in the Legacy levels! A. You have to Homing Attack them by pressing A to jump then pressing A again near the robot. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 2. Mission Types and General Tips: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Here are the types of Missions, I'll add more tips later, tell me if I missed a Mission type: Go for the Goal: The only objective is the get to the end. 5-star: Try not to get hit and kill as many enemies as possible. Try this technique, with Knight Style Sonic you eventually gain Soul Barrier Skill, while gives you Soul when you loose Rings. Now equip Poison Ring that makes you loose Rings. With lots of Rings or Enemies in a level, you can have infinite Soul!!! Run through at blazing speed and hit every enemy perfectly Beat the Clock: There is a time limit to the stage, it's best if you are going through the first time to jump over enemies and stuff. 5-star: See Go for the Goal Pass Through the Gate: Sort of like Beat the Clock, but you have to pass through Blue Gates to gain more time on the clock. Same tip as above. You can also fail this mission type by getting defeated. Suggested Style: Cavalier 5-star: See Go for the Goal Grind Challenge: Stay on the rail, or you fail the mission. Remember to jump at the right time. 5-star: Quickly Mastery Stage: You only get a certain number of swings of your sword, it's a puzzle you have to solve, learn what you absolutely have to destroy. 5-star: Fewest swings possible, quickly. Rush Hour: Avoid touching Townspeople, go slow at first. Use Mermaid's Tear, you can jump then attack townspeople and it doesn't count as a touch. 5-star: Speed. Here is a good technique, use Mermaid's Tear, and if you jump and attack, if you hit a townsperson it doesn't count as a hit, do this the entire way through. Rampage: Defeat a certain number of enemies. Good Items to increase score: Lollipop, Gladiolus, Dragon Fang Suggested Style: Paladin 5-star: See Go for the Goal Total Rampage: No way to fail this mission. You can use Rings to stay alive. It turns out, to get a higher score, it's important to chain enemies like the Chain of Enemies missions. 5-star: See Go for the Goal (except Deep Woods) Ultimate Challenge: Exactly like Total Rampage, except you don't get any Rings to help keep you alive. It turns out, to get a higher score, it's important to chain enemies like the Chain of Enemies missions. 5-star: You can do the Dragon's Lair one by using Lancelot's final sword and using his special move, Chaos Blast during Soul Surge, and equipping points increasing items for defeating more than one enemy at a time or Gladiolus. Diehard Challenge: Don't get defeated (though you can loose Rings) Good time: Herb of Toughness 5-star: See Go for the Goal Chain of Enemies: Get your Hits meter up to a certain point. Your hits meter will go down if you take too long slashing enemies in a row or if you get hit. 5-star: See go for the goal Perfect Challenge: Don't get hit. 5-star: For the Titanic Plain one see Go for the Goal Chain of Rings: Get a certain number of Rings in a row. If you don't get them quick enough in a row, then the chain will start over again. Good score increaser: Flower Amulet 5-star: Have Ring Present and I think another skill gained, and get Rings for defeating enemies. Collect Rings: Grab a certain number of Rings before reaching the Goal. 5-star: See Chain of Rings. Ring-Giver: Give a certain amount of Rings to the townspeople. Make sure you do not get hit by enemies. Suggested Item: Bright Red Ribbon 5-star: Give Rings to as many townspeople as possible. Hide and Seek: Find a certain number of hidden green fairies. Score Increaser: Dragon Scale Suggested skill acquired: Hidden Fairy Lock-on with Sonic 5-star: Don't get hit, quickly, as many fairies as possible. Special Challenge: Read the objective carefully Legacy Stage: A classic Sonic level with springs and booster pads and regular Rings. The Eggman robots have to be Homing Attacked by pressing A then A again. 5-star: A balance between speed, rings and enemies Defeat the Boss: Get into a fight, each boss has different strategies. 5-star: Don't get hit ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 2.a. Easy ways to get rare items ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Equip Rabbit's Tail in order to increase the likelihood of encountering rare items.

Blue Dot Missions (Sonic only) ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.a. Misty Lake ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.a.1. Special Challenge: Reach the Misty Lake ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Very first mission Unlocks: Misty Lake Special Mission: Retrieve Sacred Sword The first part of the level shows you how to attack and guard and stuff. To hit the higher targets, jump then attack. 5-star: I hit most of the targets very quickly, I think the Ring Rescue skill helped in getting Rings. Common Items Encountered: Skipping Stone Narcissus Ham Doughnut Tart Moist Cookie ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.a.2. Special Challenge: Retrieve the Sacred Sword ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Misty Lake Special: Reach the Misty Lake Unlocks: Misty Lake Defeat Boss: King Arthur Don't hit the wooden townspeople! Use guard, Z button, to defend against the boars. The Mist Dragon: Mostly, you can jump and swing your sword, but when you see it about to pound the ground with it's head you need to jump. 5-star: Use Mermaid's Tear to help with the targets. I got a good time, try not to get hit. Common Items Encountered: Moist Cookie Narcissus Skipping Stone Daffodil ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.a.3. Defeat the Boss: King Arthur ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Misty Lake Special: Retrieve the Sacred Sword Unlocks: Misty Lake Special: Wield the Sacred Sword First follow King Arthur, then when he stops, wait for a blue wii remote to appear, shake the wii remote when this symbol comes up. Then repeat. Finally press the A button when instructed. He will run away again, this time you can defeat enemies if you want to before reaching him again. Repeat above process till he's defeated. Five-star: I five stared this by getting all the button prompts right the first time and defeating the enemies that appeared, you can use Soul Surge for this. Common Items Encountered: Steel Gauntlet Bronze Gauntlet Cursed Gauntlet Fishing Pole Doughnut Narcissus ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.a.4. Special Challenge: Wield the Sacred Sword ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Misty Lake Boss Unlocks: Camelot Castle's Reach Blacksmith Use guard against the giant wild boars or just jump over them. Don't hit the townspeople props or you will get lower points. You don't have to slice through the stones before the Goal. 5-star: Items I had equipped: Lollipop Mermaid's Tear I think the ability Ring Rescue helped, not sure, but I got a ton of Rings for this one. Run and slice very quickly through the targets, it's best near the end to just keep pressing up and shaking the wii remote. Jump over the boars, keep a nice steady pace. Mermaid's Tear means it doesn't matter if you hit the townspeople things. Common Items Encountered: Skipping Stone Letter String of Pearls Healing Draught Healing Potion ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.a.5. Go for the Goal ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Great Megalith Chain of Enemies Unlocks: Crystal Cave Chain of Rings Blue Energy Spheres (Will-o'-Wisps), when you encounter these, use Soul Surge by pressing the B button, then shake the Nunchuk to kick them and set off chain reactions in the level. Target area, if you carefully hit all the targets and not the townspeople, you will be able to give rings to a couple of them. (Use Mermaid's Tear to do this easily) But there is a hitch, there is a will- o'wisp in the middle that a stupid guy runs right into, hurting him repeatedly. What you need to do is while still kind of far back, kick it, this will also open up the blocked rail ahead. Blocked rail at the end of target area, see above. 5-star: I had String of Pearls and Mermaid's Tear Equipped. I Soul Surged past most of the first part. I hit most of the targets quickly, getting a big hit chain. I didn't get hit, and I gave rings to all the townspeople. Common Items Encountered: Mermaid's Tear Ice Broach String of Pearls (townsperson?) Lithograph (townsperson I think) Moist Cookie Healing Draught Healing Potion (treasure chest I think) Skipping Stone Fishing Pole ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.a.6. Pass Through the Gate ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Molten Mine Ring Giver Unlocks: Misty Lake Mastery, Titanic Plain Special Challenge Go straight ahead, and take the first jump fairies to the first gate. Now up ahead, see the blocks to the left with apples on them, go this way to find purple fairies, flick the wii remote at the correct time, so you can go a faster path. After grinding the rail, jump through the switch, and see the jump up ahead, get to it quickly or it disappears, jump off it then jump dash to a pole up ahead to go through another gate and purple fairies. Next gate just takes jump timing and purple fairies timing. You can run through a safe patch through the spiky balls, then some purple fairies will take you to the next gate. Now it's a straight shot to the goal. 5-star: Style: Cavalier Items I had equipped: Highland Mushroom String of Pearls Follow walkthrough above, you can still weave carefully through the spiky balls and make it with a 5-star Common Items Encountered: Wavestone Mermaid's Tear Lithograph Healing Draught Fishing Pole Lollipop String of Pearls ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.a.7. Mastery Stage ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Misty Lake Pass Through Gate Unlocks: Deep Woods Total Rampage Allowed 8 sword swings First you will come to a breakable wall. Don't slash from the ground, instead to break through the wall in one swipe jump then attack. Up ahead, between two targets (ignore them) you will see a breakable stone column in front of a non-breakable pillar. To the right is a stone you can slash for red fairies if you need anything on your soul gauge. Slashing from the ground where the apple is, destroy the bottom breakable stone with one swipe. Now you can jump up to where the Will- o'-Wisp (blue glowing ball) is. Jump up, then use Soul Surge and shake the nunchuk to kick it into the wall up ahead. Now go through the gap. Go past the switch, then eventually go up to the column of breakable stones four tall in front of the column of unbreakable stones. Jump up and with one sword swing break this column and you will reveal a switch. Jump up and press it, and jump fairies appear that will get you over a wall and to the Goal. 5-star: I had String of Pearls equipped, probably helped, I 5-stared this by following above instructions quickly. Reward for 5-star: Caliburn voice in Gallery Common Items Encountered: Wavestone String of Pearls Lollipop Healing Draught Fishing Pole Skipping Stone Narcissus ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.b.

Special Challenge: Reach the Blacksmith's Shop ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Misty Lake wield sacred sword Unlocks: Camelot Castle Soul Surge on Ground Try to kill all the enemies without harming the townspeople. 5-star: Pretty easy I guess since I did it without trying!

After completing this for the first time, you will now have the Blacksmith available. Commonly Encountered Items (not including enemies): Raven's Feather (townsperson) Tome of Arms Pawn Tart Sweetpea ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.b.2.

Special Challenge: Put out 10 fires ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Titanic Plain Perfect Challenge Put out a fire by slashing at it with the sword, this is not hard, but staying alive is! There are more than 10 fires, so you don't have to try to put out the ones very close to townspeople where you could hurt them. One section has a bunch of poles, avoid the poles to put out more fires. 5-star: I used Poison Ring with Soul Barrier skill to keep Soul Gauge up. When you use Soul to run fast, you actually put out the fires with your speed. Poison Ring trick can only be used when Sonic is leveled up enough to have the Soul Barrier skill. 5-star reward: Character Voice 3, Lancelot Commonly Encountered Items (not the enemy ones) Flag Expensive Broach Ballista Arrowhead Bishop Queen Pawn ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.b.9.

I suggest trying to use Soul Surge, so it's much less likely you will damage yourself or a townsperson. 5-star: I had Mermaid's Tear equipped just in case, and String of Pearls.

Go for the Goal ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Crystal Cave Rampage Horse-drawn carriage part easy, just slash when the enemies jump. Jump up and attack to get rid of hornets. Keep slicing to get out of cages. Don't stand too long on the marsh or you will sink in, but if you keep jumping you will come out of it. There are two poles that you have to walk between, because if you hit them you get sent backwards and past this a switch you shouldn't push. After breaking down the second bridge support, you will find it is too short. Jump at the wall, then keep pressing the jump button to climb up it. 5-star: I used the Poison Ring when I had the Soul Barrier and Ring Present Skills to Soul Surge through. Poison Ring trick can only be used when Sonic is leveled up enough to have the Soul Barrier skill. Also when you Soul Surge (like Speed Break in Secret Rings) without enemies nearby, you will go fast and be invincible to obstacles.

Defeat the Boss: Lancelot Returns ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Dark Hollow Unlocks: Shrouded Forest Special Challenge Start with 100 Rings He uses his special moves Chaos Spear and Chaos Blast against you. I find that blocking or just jumping over the spears works well, you can just hit him while he is standing there, and often Chaos Blast after you hit him a few times in a row. Sword Duel prompts are hard to follow. Use herb of toughness. I find jumping attacks work pretty well. 5-star: Don't get hit. Here is a modified strategy, Superfield sent me this and I expanded on it, takes good timing, Perfect Shield and Gauge Bonus helps a lot. First start off by shielding against his first few sword attacks until your Soul Gauge is full. Now listen carefully, use Soul Surge when he is jumping away from the sword attack. You have to time it just right or he uses Chaos Blast against you too soon. Get in 6 perfect hits, then shield so Chaos Blast doesn't get you. Now block his Chaos Spear. Now do the same as before, filling up Soul Gauge with sword attacks. Now attack again as before, 6 perfect hits. Now he charges up a deadlier Chaos Spear, what you do is Soul Surge at beginning of attack, get in 5 hits, block Chaos Blast. He does this again, do again. Now he does an even stronger Chaos Blast attack, but repeat above. Now after this two times, he slashes at you with sword again, but with a different pattern, with a pause after he teleports. Fill up Soul Gauge again, but this time as soon as he teleports and is about to slash you again, use Soul Surge. You will only probably get in one hit before he Chaos Blasts, but he should be pretty much gone by now, just repeat above process till you win.

Get more stars the more enemies you chain together. 5-star: This is a hard one, it was the last one I 5-stared in the game. I used Knight Style Sonic, with Poison Ring/Soul Barrier trick and Lollipop. Poison Ring trick can only be used when Sonic is leveled up enough to have the Soul Barrier skill. This one has to be walkthroughed! First Soul Gauge through the first few groups of enemies, don't worry about getting perfect hits and quickly cover ground with soul between enemies, just keep swinging the wii remote till you get to a golden robot. Kill it, and watching above for the spikes, jump over the block, then use Soul again and kill two more groups of enemies. Now stop Soul. See the yellow fairies up ahead? They are over a wooden trigger for a trap, what you do is carefully jump over the trigger, then kill the golden robot, jump over the block. After the block, there's another wooden trigger, but it's broken or something, just Soul Surge till you get to another group of yellow fairies below an evil treasure chest. Now be careful, and jump a small jump between the wooden trigger and this treasure chest. Now you want to hit the ground, then soul surge two enemies. Stop Soul again, there's yet another trigger. Kill another golden robot. Now you are faced with a whole lot of triggers!!! What you do needs practice, but you soul surge from the air a bunch of enemies across. Now is the weird part. There is a column of switches with Will- o'-Wisps on the other side. Kick the bottom four to kill a few enemies and then continue on ahead, the next part is pretty easy cause it starts from the beginning of the level again, just continue until time runs out.

Get more stars the more enemies you chain together. 5-star: Paladin Style Sonic with almost all skills unlocked. Lollipop and Highland Mushroom equipped. Basically, you have to keep your hits high, first part, jump over the logs to attack enemies with Soul Surge. When you get to the first set of traps, jump in between them and watch out, the second group of fairies has a wooden thing under them, step on it and you will be in a cage! So you have to jump over the traps quickly to keep your hit count up. Then repeat with the enemies. Second set of traps, this time Soul Surge through them, so you run so fast then they don't hurt you, then continue attacking enemies with Soul Surge until the very end. I got over a 50 enemy chain. 5-star reward: Voice 10, Nimue Common Items Encountered: Katana Cure-all Broach Petrification Immunity Stone Protection Spongy Bread Fresh Milk Herb of Calm ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.c.9.

Also try these items: Bright Red Ribbon to reduce the number of button inputs, and String of Pearls to get points for fairies! Slash the first two stones, then proceed to the first townsperson after picking up 20 rings worth of fairies, give then to him. Now climb the wall in back of him. There are blue jump fairies up ahead, you will see up above is one cluster of yellow faries and two clusters of blue fairies to the left, and one cluster of yellow fairies to the right. To get the fairies on the left, jump up, then when you are slightly below the level of the blue jump fairies up there, press left on the control stick to hit the wall and to slide down it. Now go back to the jump fairies on the ground, and this time hit the jump fairies up above the yellow ones you just got in order to hit the wall with the other yellow fairies. Get those, then climb that same wall up to a townsperson and give him some rings. Now go to the right, jump over a gap and grab some more yellow fairies, then you will see another hole with yellow fairies on the right side of it, jump so you hit the wall, slide down the wall just enough to grab the fairies, then climb up the wall to the townsperson, give him some rings. Hit the blue fairies in back of this townsperson, then you will hit the ground on top of more yellow fairies. Now go to the left past parts you have already see, and past the blue fairies on the ground, so you can grind a chain and end up at another large wooden jail area. After grinding the chain, grab the fairies, then you will see more above, to get them, fall down below to the grass and you will find blue jump fairies. Hit the wall, slide down it enough to grab the fairies, then climb the same wall to find another townsperson. Now go to the left, and you will see fairies on the right edge of a large gap, and fairies on the other side, first grab the fairies on the other side of this hole, then go backwards, and slide down the wall of the hole, and you will hit even more fairies before you get to the bottom. Before you give Rings to the townsperson down there, go backwards a bit to pick up some more Yellow Fairies, Now give some rings to the townsperson down there. Now drop down to the ground. See the breakable rocks behind you? Break them all to find more fairies. Now give Rings to the townsperson in front of you. Climb up the wall in back of that townsperson, and ignore the jump fairies up there for now, to the left of them is a townsperson, you should have enough Rings to give. Now hit the jump fairies in back of that person, and then the other ones, use the jump fairies to get to the right and climb the wall, you will grind another chain. You will hit another wall, slide down it for some yellow fairies, then climb up it, go to the left for more fairies and then a townsperson. Hit jump fairies in back of this person, then when you land head left, fall down to the ground. Ignore this townsperson down there, continue up the wall, and find more fairies to give to a townsperson near the Goal. You should have given 180 fairies and have a 5-star.

Slice through the air to destroy the red lock to free the townsperson, then attack the enemies ahead. Now jump down, and destroy the enemies below. Now jump down and run through the grass avoiding the spears to get to the next wooden jail pulled by giants. Use jump fairies, then go forward, drop down, use more fairies, climb a wall, flip over some spikes at the top, then hit the jump fairies you see, slide down the wall, hit more fairies, climb a wall, then free another townsperson. Jump over two holes, and find some enemies guarding a cage with three locks. Destroy the enemies first, then slash at the cage until the person is free, then more fairies will appear. Now continue on, past the spikes again, this time not using the jump fairies, till you are back in the grass. Two giant knights ahead will be in your way, it's best to use Soul Surge. Continue on to the next big wooden thing. After hitting the jump and dash fairies, look carefully up ahead and you will see fairies in the air, jump on them to get higher, climb a wall, and free a person. Watch out for spikes, see the hole in between the spikes, jump down there and you will find another three lock townsperson, fairies will appear after you free him that lead to the Goal. 5-star: Ehh, I just Soul Surged all the enemies I encountered with Gladiolus equipped. 5-star reward: Character Voice 5, Gawain Commonly Encountered Items (not enemy items): Encyclopedia Arcana Vial of Calm Philter of Tranquility Carnation Joker Ace of Clubs ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.d.9.

Go into Soul Surge and use the Nunchuk to kick it, and it will bounce away, and guess what, boost fairies and Rings appear! After the first group of enemies before you get to the boost fairies, you will find a rock formation that is breakable to the right, slash at it to reveal hidden jump fairies, take this higher but more dangerous path with enemies for more Rings. At the end of this past, you will get to a Will-o'-Wisp, kick it to make a Rich Ring appear over a Will-o'- wisp on a platform ahead, jump and then kick that will-o'wisp to make an enemy appear on a platform ahead, Soul Surge this enemy, then find another Will-o'wisp ahead and kick that one to break down a wall with another Rich Ring behind it. Now continue on, I suggest jumping over enemies, and you should have over 100 rings at the end. Use Knight style, so Ring Rescue and Ring Present come into play, attack those enemies too! 5-star: Above instructions with Knight style with Ring Bonus and Ring Present, killed most enemies with Soul Surge, had about 185 Rings at the end.

Now hit the switch and continue running past the enemies swerving for the rings. Now jump at the spike on the ceiling, he will auto jump between the two spikes. Continue on, jumping over some enemies to get rings. Up ahead, take the left fork. Dodge a bunch of enemies while running, up ahead take the left for again. Now see the jump fairies to the left, take then up to a switch that makes a rich ring (counts as 20 rings) appear. Continue on from there dodging enemies, hitting the switch. Remember, if you get hit by an enemy, you can continue a chain if you pick up another ring fast enough. I think the skills Ring Rescue and Ring Present are involved, but if you have the right skills, hitting enemies with soul surge gives you Rings, which you can use to continue the chain. 5-star: Above route, hitting enemies when you have Ring Resuce and Ring Present. I got over 150 Ring Chain (jump over the second group of two enemies however, they slow you down too much.) and I had Flower Amulet equipped. 5-star reward: Voice 12, Merlina Commonly Encountered Items: Ice Crystal Beautiful Crystal Aquamarine Emerald Lump of Iron Daisy ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.e.8.

Take breaks by stopping when going on the ledge every once and a while so you don't fall off. And even quicker way, Soul Surge across it! Secret Path: Look for a ledge next to the second railroad track, go this way to find a treasure chest. Huge gap in the railroad tracks, after jumping in the air and Sonic twirls around, then you can jump again for a jump dash if you have to. Hard rail part, remember you can change rails by pressing right and left.

It's faster to grind the rail, but you have to jump over minecarts. Save a bunch of time, in fact, if you don't do this you probably won't make it! On the narrow ledges in this stage, you can either Soul Surge through them, or you need to jump over the first part to land about in the middle of the ledge. Toward the end, make sure the fire is not in the way. Second grind rail, while on this rail look to the left and you will eventually see some breakable blocks, this is a narrow ledge, it leads to a hidden townsperson, but it's hard to go this way and make it to the end. After the pillars of fire, carefully switch rails! Swerve back and forth between the boulders at the end or jump and slash or Soul Surge. 5-star: I spammed the Knight style Poison Ring/Soul Barrier trick.

Also at one point, use Blue Jump Fairies and then a Jump Dash to avoid falling rocks. You get lots of Rings because of Ring Present Skill. Common Items Encountered (not counting items from enemies) Mithril Flintstone Stone Aluminum Ore Garnet Lump of Iron Lily ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.f.7. Ultimate Challenge ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Deep Woods Ultimate Challenge Can't fail mission. Get more stars the more enemies you chain together. 5-star: Paladin Sonic, with Gauge Bonus +3 at least and Lollipop and Herb of Strength equipped. I would suggest just slashing the first few enemies so you can have a full gauge, it will help. I wouldn't suggest Soul Surging between enemies. Don't be that scared of fire pillars, if there is an enemy behind them, you can Soul Surge through them. The hardest part: There is two walls with flame pillars between, you have to very quickly jump on top of the first wall, hope the flame pillars are down, jump across the second one and hope you have enough time left to make it to the next group of enemies with your hit meter up. 5-star reward: Character Voice 7, Percival Common Items Carried (except enemy carried): Mithril Aluminum Ore Lump of Bronze Amethyst Garnet ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.f.8. Beat the Clock ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Crystal Cave Pass through the Gate Unlocks: Faraway Avalon Chain of Rings You get 1 minute to beat the level. Switch to Cavalier's Style. Third minecart with boards sticking out, slash with sword. Try to jump over enemies, if stubborn, easier to kill of you jump up in the air then attack. After running through the buildings, there's a group of enemies you have to defeat to break a wall apart. After breaking the wall, there's an alternate path, a narrow ledge to the left, it's slower that way however, but you get to a secret treasure chest. There is a townsperson you can talk to, but it slows you down, not recommended for beginners. Weave back and forth through the giant boulders or easier jump and slash or Soul Surge. 5-star: Used the Poison Ring/Soul Barrier technique, had Gladiolus equipped also, Soul Surged through the entire level. Poison Ring trick can only be used when Sonic is leveled up enough to have the Soul Barrier skill. Common Items encountered: Townsperson: Arthur's Legend 4 Treasure Chest: Diamond Garnet Amethyst Dice Tome of Minerals Flintstone ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.f.9. Legacy ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Camelot Castle Legacy Easy Mission, bounce off things and Homing Attack the robots. You might get one or more Yellow World Ring for completing this mission. Also look out for the cool Medal of Percival. 5-star: First of all, there's a Rich Ring after the second group of enemies, jump dash for it. And for the 5-star secret, I used Poison Ring! It seems to give points despite the poison. 5-star bonus: Developer Data 14, Molten Mine Common Items Encountered: Medal of Percival Yellow Ring Poison Ring Flintstone Aluminum Ore Lump of Iron Amethyst Diamond ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.g. Faraway Avalon ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.g.1. Defeat the Boss: King Arthur ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Molten Mine Boss Unlocks: Knight's Passage Beat the Clock Basically, there are first a couple of attacks to avoid: Sword, sometimes it slashes from one side to the other, basically swerve to avoid. Sometimes it comes straight at you, swerve again, and when it's slashing back and forth, run in between the slashes. Beam Attack, these pink beams will paralyze you, run back and forth to avoid. Charge attack, he charges straight down the middle, run to one side other the other. Fill up Soul Gauge, when he throws the red things at you, slash them with your sword. How to attack him: When you are relatively close to him and you have enough Soul Surge, use it. Then follow the blue wii remote command prompts to sword duel several times, now go in for the kill by slashing repeatedly. Repeat above process once more to finish him off. 5-star: I found out that if you have the skills Gauge Bonus +2 at least, possibly Surge Rescue and ones that increase your gauge, you can attack at the start and very quickly, though I find if you attack him from the start the game seems to glitch and the first wii remote prompt often doesn't come up (correction by glitchhunter75, you can't attack because you don't have enough Soul Gauge, wait till the Gauge Bonus Skill is higher, at least +2.) 5-star Reward: Developer Data 15 Commonly Encountered Items (probably more): Mintstone Steel Longsword Petrification Immunity Rose ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.g.2. Chain of Rings ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Molten Mine Beat the Clock Unlocks: Faraway Avalon Total Rampage 350 Ring Chains First, try with Knight style when you have the Ring Present and Ring Rescue skills (I think those are the skills helping out), you will need it to finish this mission, so that you can use Soul Surge attacks to gain Rings when fighting the enemies and keep the chain going. I'll walkthrough this one in the future but it's pretty straightforward, with skills above, you can attack the enemies and keep the ring chain going. Attacking the giant, use Soul Surge. Grab as many Rich Rings (big ones) as you can. 5-star: I kept the chain going throughout, and I used Poison Ring and Flower Amulet. 5-star Reward: Developer 8 Common Items Encountered: Mintstone Petrification Immunity Paralysis Immunity Paralysis Cure Herb of Strength Herb of Toughness Rose ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.g.3.

Poison Ring trick can only be used when Sonic is leveled up enough to have the Soul Barrier skill. Basically Poison Ring Fills up Soul Gauge because of the Soul Barrier Skill. Now what you do is Soul Surge the enemies, but don't worry about Perfect Hits. You also want to use Soul Surge between enemies to cover ground quickly. You get lots of Rings because of Ring Present Skill. If you run out of Soul, just stand there for a moment and your Ring Loss will fill it back up again! 5-star Reward: King Arthur Voice Common Items Encountered: Orichalcum Mintstone Paralysis Cure Paralysis Immunity Petrification Immunity Herb of Strength Herb of Toughness Rose ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 3.g.4. Ultimate Challenge ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Faraway Avalon Total Rampage Can't fail mission. Get more stars the more enemies you chain together. 5-star: I used Paladin style Sonic, with almost all skills and gauge bonus 3 I think. I had Highland Mushroom and Lollipop equipped. Basically, I attacked all enemies from the air with Soul Surge with Perfect Hit. It seems if you hit just right, sometimes a hit will make your Soul Gauge go up, you should be able to do this. I had nearly 80 hits on my meter at the end. 5-star reward: Voice 15, Knight of the Wind and Legendary Sword Common Items Encountered: Orichalcum Mint Stone Stone Protection Petrification Immunity Paralysis Immunity Paralysis Cure Herb of Toughness Herb of Strength Rose ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.

Slash through walls of water or Soul Surge thorough them. All you do on the boat is slash enemies. Second boat, slash the enemy first to start the boat. 5-star: I used Lancelot's Ultimate Sword. I Soul Surged most of the way through, killing enemies and in between and I had Dragon Scale and Dragon Claw equipped. The most important part is to get hit only once or less, which is hard. Be careful and don't soul surge into the spiky weights at the end. When you beat this for the first time, now you can play as the Knights of the Roundtable! Common Items Encountered (except enemy, more than this): Mouse Tail Rook Queen Knight Tome of Armor Antidote ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.a.2. Perfect Challenge ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Dark Hollow Recommended Items: Petrification Immunity Stone Broach Stone Protection Cure-all Broach You pretty much need the items to survive because petrification is instant death. It's a matter of luck, because even with such an item equipped you still may get petrified. Basically, jump over the blue things, and slash enemies with the sword from the boat. The Goal is in sight, but one last spiky thing comes at you!!! 5-star: I used Lancelot and his last sword and he had Stone Broach and Wooden Belt equipped, and I killed all the enemies I could without getting hit. 5-star reward: Character Voice 14, Knave and Knife Common Items Encountered: Arthur's Legend 5 Tome of Armor Mouse Tail Gladiolus Onion Ring Rook ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.a.3.

Continue for a ways, till you fall a great distance again. Destroy enemies down there to break open more blocks for another fairy. Climbing up the wall with spikes on top, above the left-most spike is a pole sticking out of the wall, hit it to be thrown up in the air to grab a fairy. Clearly seen climbing up the next wall in the middle of spikes. Defeat the next petrification enemies to open blocks with a fairy inside. 5-star: Hard, because you can like only get hit once and still make it with a 5-star, practice! I used Sonic with Stone Broach and Dragon Scale, only got hit once somehow. Common Items Encountered (more than this, excludes enemy carried): Lantern (treasure chest?) Knight Onion Ring Wooden Belt Bright Red Ribbon ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.a.4. Special Challenge ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Knight's Passage Hide and Seek Defeat 10 Will-o'-Wisps. These are the blue energy balls. Sonic and Lancelot recommended because they can kick Will-o'-wisps and set off reactions, but Sonic's attacks are much faster. Gawain can destroy then with regular Soul Surge but can't set off reaction. Percival is lousy at this. Destroy them with Sonic or Lancelot by using Soul Surge, but instead of using the wii remote shake the nunchuk to kick it out of the way. 5-star: I used Lancelot and his last sword, Chao Blasted with Soul Surge away at enemies with Dragon Claw and Gladiolus equipped. I had to be careful a couple of places not to get too close to Will-o'-wisp before using Chaos Blast, but if it's far enough away it's okay. 5-star reward: Character Voice 2, Sonic Battle Mode Common Items Encountered (except enemy carried) Arthur's Legend 5 Tome of Armor Oar King Lantern Onion Ring Gladiolus ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.a.5.

Beat the Clock ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Knight's Passage Beat the Clock Unlocks: Beat this, Shrouded Forest Beat the Clock, and Great Megalith Beat the Clock to unlock Dragon's Lair Beat the Clock Cavalier-style Sonic or Percival recommended. You get 7 minutes. First time through, jump over enemies. Be careful of the flame plumbs over the large gaps, time your jump perfectly. On the lava flow, you can move back and forth. 5-star: I used Lancelot, I used his last sword, had Gladiolus and Dragon Fang equipped. Basically it's hard to go through without getting hit, I got hit twice, but it seems Chaos Blasting as many enemies as possible gives you enough points to get over this. Commonly Encountered Items (Except Enemy Carried, more than this): Bat's Fang (treasure chest?) Stone Broach Hardtack Marigold ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.b.2. Mastery Stage ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: The Cauldron Beat the Clock Allowed 10 sword swings. Grab the yellow fairies, then very carefully jump over the lava gap when the geysers of fire are not present. You will see several enemies ahead, but only destroy the two by the wall with orange bases, when you do, hopefully with only one swipe, it will break apart, then a third one appears, get that too. Climb up the wooden wall, you should probably ignore the enemies at the top, then fall down below. Lots of enemies, but see the four in the middle with the purple markings? Destroy those to break down the next wall. Wall after that, jump up then attack to destroy part of it with just one swipe. Next group of enemies, destroy only the ones with orange bases, now you have reached the Goal! 5-star: I used Lancelot and his very last sword, he has a special move with that sword where he uses Chaos Blast during Soul Surge, basically I just used that to kill all the enemies quickly in a row. Wooden Belt and Dragon Claw equipped also seemed to help. Commonly encountered items (minus enemy carried) Tome of Medicines Hardtack Herb Marigold Opal Ruby ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.b.3. Hide and Seek ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Dark Hollow Unlocks: Cauldron Special Challenge, Shrouded Forest Hide and Seek, Knight's Passage Hide and Seek Find 7 Hidden Fairies Basically, you are climbing around on the wall, hitting switches to reveal fairies, here are some locations: When first climbing up the wall, you will encounter 4 switches in a row, hit the third one from the left to reveal three green fairies below you on the wall. Climb up the wall again, and above the four switches to the right is another switch, hit to reveal a fairy on the wall to the left. Go past the spikes and hit another switch, reveal a fairy to the left, and one below some spikes, carefully maneuver around the spikes. Keep going, two more switches, the one on the top reveals a hidden fairy. After those two switches, next switch reveals a hidden fairy to the right. If you hit the first geyser, you will be thrown back to the beginning, if you hit the second geyser, you will find a shortcut to the end. 5-star: I got the first 7 fairies quickly with String of Pearls and Dragon Scale Equipped. I also used the second geyser as a shortcut Commonly Encountered Items (minus enemy items): Lava Jewel Opal Topaz Marigold Broken Brick ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.b.4. Special Challenge ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: The Cauldron Hide and Seek Escape the Cauldron Recommended Items: Paralysis Cure Paralysis Immunity Cure-all Broach This is a puzzle, you have to hit the right geysers in order to make it through, some geysers send you backwards, here is a walkthrough: Hit the first geyser to grab some fairies, then defeat some enemies to make a wall break down, go through here. You can grab the next geyser with fairies if you want to, but remember it makes some enemies appear. Keep going not hitting the next geyser till you reach the one with fairies, this will make paralysis enemies appear up ahead. Kill them and the wall crumbles down. Ignore the next geyser with fairies, it's bad, hit the next one instead to make a lot of enemies appear, defeat them to make a wall crumble down. Now it's a matter of ducking geysers and if you make it through you will make it to the goal. How to get the switch in the air: Last geyser in the stage, it makes a treasure chest appear. 5-star: I uses Lancelot and his last sword. I followed instructions above, but I used Chaos Blast, and I had both Dragon Claw and Paralysis Immunity equipped. 5-star reward: Percival battle mode voice (number 8) Commonly encountered items (minus enemy items): Soft boiled egg (treasure chest) Lava Jewel Ruby Tome of Medicines Hardtack ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.b.5. Rampage ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Dragon's Lair Chain of Rings Unlocks: Dragon's Lair Total Rampage, Great Megalith Hide and Seek Destroy 12 enemies. Very basic, you move back and forth on the rock in the lava, and slash at enemies. 5-star: Used Sonic, killed 20 enemies. Commonly Encountered Items (Except Enemy Carried): Lava Jewel Soft-Boiled Egg Hot Fiery Quaff Fiery Quaff Marigold Hardtack ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.b.6. Legacy ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Great Megalith Hide and Seek Gawain can't Homing Attack, but in this level he makes it across the gaps better with his glide. Large gaps, time your jump right to avoid the fire plumbs, other than that a typical legacy stage. You might get a Red World Ring for completing this stage. 5-star: The difference in points seems to be smashing the hidden robots at the beginning, basically jump over the first booster ramp, and getting those tricky Rich Rings (big silver rings). I don't know if it made a difference, but I had lollipop and highland mushroom equipped. 5-star reward: Developer Data 11, Percival's weapon. Common Items Encountered: Red Ring Poison Ring Lava Jewel Opal Topaz Fiery Quaff Hot Fiery Quaff Stone Broach Marigold ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.c.

Beat the Clock ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Knight's Passage Beat the Clock Unlocks: Complete this, The Cauldron Beat the Clock and Great Megalith Beat the Clock to unlock Dragon's Lair Beat the Clock Calavier style Sonic or Percival good for this(but you can only use Sonic at first). Jump over enemies first time to save time. Hit the red glowing logs to be propelled into the air. Jump dash over the thorn roots, these can be hard to get by. The Knights of the Roundtable are unlocked after this mission. 5-star: Sonic Knight style Poison Ring/Soul Barrier technique works well here, might have a little trouble with the tree roots, but I was just fine even after hitting them a couple of times. Poison Ring trick can only be used when Sonic is leveled up enough to have the Soul Barrier skill. 5-star reward: Developer Data 4, Enemy 3. Commonly Encountered Items (Except Enemy Carried, and there are more, but I hate this level and I'm only doing it once for now): Mermaid's Tear Aluminum Ore Flower Amulet ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.c.2. Chain of Enemies ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Shrouded Forest Beat the Clock 20 Enemies, have to get the hit meter to 20. Recommended Items: Philter of Tranquility Vail of Calm Cure-all Broach Basically, there are a bunch of treasure chests. The evil treasure chests with the big tongues are not counted as enemies, the spider-like creatures are. When you are confused, the enemies turn into treasure chests. This one is hard. My biggest tips are to carry anti-confusion items, though you can slash at the butterflies, and to memorize where the enemies are before they turn into treasure chests, you can still attack then as treasure chests. 5-star: I used the Sonic Poison Ring/Soul Barrier technique, Sonic doesn't seem to get confused when he is Soul Surging. Poison Ring trick can only be used when Sonic is leveled up enough to have the Soul Barrier skill. Commonly Encountered Items (except enemy held): Ice Broach Dart Doll Philter of Tranquility Ham ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.c.3. Hide and Seek ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: The Cauldron Hide and Seek Unlocks: Great Megalith Special Challenge, Dragon's Lair Collect Rings, Shrouded Forest Mastery Find 5 fairies. Sonic once he gets hidden fairy lock-on recommended, soul surge the fairies with this skill. Recommended Items: Ice Broach Fiery Quaff Hot Fiery Quaff Cure-all Broach Roots especially hard to get by in this level. Jump dash with Sonic. Jump off logs to grab fairies, which are easy to find in this level. 5-star: I used Lancelot and I had Dragon Scale and Dragon Claw equipped. I used his ultimate sword (the last one) but it's probably not necessary. I even got hit once, so the extra points from the items probably helped a lot. Commonly Encountered Items (Except enemy carried): Tome of Games Giant Flower Seed (treasure chest?) Dartboard Dart Herb Daffodil ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.c.4. Mastery Stage ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Shrouded Forest Hide and Seek Unlocks: Shrouded Forest Legacy Allowed 11 sword swings Gawain not recommended cause he likes to swing twice in one hit. Lancelot does this sometimes too. Take one swipe at the first enemy to crumble the wall, and do the same for the next enemy. The next part is trickier, what you do is gather as many enemies as you can around a red fire box, slash at the box, stand back, and let the explosion kill the enemies, you have to kill them all in the next section to break down the wall. 5-star: I had Lollipop equipped, I think that helped. I also had the Ring Rescue skill and finished with tons of Rings because I hit the fire boxes quickly, and I finished with no hits and 4 swings left. Common Items Encountered (except enemy carried, but actually in this one it seems you might get more weapons than you get from enemies): Magical Moth Dust (Treasure Chest) Giant Flower Seed Dartboard Doll Daffodil ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.c.5. Special Challenge ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Deep Woods Boss: Lancelot Returns Don't touch the ground Gawain recommended. Basically I cheat, there is a messed-up log in this level that you don't quite land on, instead I glide around with Gawain till I hit jump fairies. Blocks don't count as the ground. To correctly use purple fairies, wait till the ring constricts, then flick the wii remote when the blue prompt appears. 5-star: I did it with Gawain, basically I had Dragon Fang equipped. I got the first few jump and purple fairies, glided over the three enemies, then after that ignored the evil treasure chest and glided to the next set of purple fairies, got all the red ones, then when I reached the top of the blocks, I used his Soul Surge, Dragon Fang helps because you get a bonus for killing enemies in a row. Then I glided to the Goal. 5-star reward: Character voice 4, Lancelot Battle Mode Common Items Encountered: Tome of Games Dartboard Dart Doll Aluminum Ore Plant Thorn Ham Daffodil ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.c.6. Legacy ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Shrouded Forest Mastery Gawain not recommended because he can't Homing Attack. You may get the Green World Ring for beating this mission. 5-star: I don't know if it matters, but I skipped one robot, I used Lancelot, last sword, and I had Poison Ring(helps?) and Lollipop equipped. 5-star reward: Lancelot's Weapon (Developer Data 9) Common Items Encountered: Mermaid's Tear Magical Moth Dust String of Pearls Green Ring Ice Broach Poison Ring Thorn Anklet Aluminum Ore ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.d.

First time through jump over enemies to save time. Help free the townspeople by breaking the locks, you know you wanna... 5-star: I used the Poison Ring plus Soul Barrier skills to Soul Surge through the entire thing. Make sure to get Perfect Hits, Gladiolus also helps. Poison Ring trick can only be used when Sonic is leveled up enough to have the Soul Barrier skill. 5-star reward: Developer Data 3, enemy 2.

Diehard Challenge ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Great Megalith Beat the Clock Basically don't die. Ring Rescue Skill helps here because of all the Enemy bashing, get Rings for those enemies to help keep alive! 5-star: I used Lancelot's last sword, and Chaos Blasted my way through all the enemies and even past the spikes and stuff to the Goal. Commonly encountered items (except enemy ones): Tome of Feasts Big the Cat Mask Ace of Diamonds Ace of Hearts Building Block Iron Shackle Larkspur ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.d.3. Chain of Enemies ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Dark Hollow Unlocks: Misty Lake Go for the Goal, Molten Mine Pass through the Gate 50 enemies. Not too hard actually, you have to get 50 in a row without getting hit, but it's pretty straightforward. 5-star: Using Lancelot's Ultimate (last) sword and Soul Surge, I got like over 70 in a row. Also had points increasing items. Common Items Encountered (except enemy carried): Moonrock Prison Key Building Block ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.d.4. Special Challenge ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Shrouded Forest Hide and Seek Destroy 12 columns Recommended Items: Poison Broach Superior Antidote Antidote Cure-all Broach Slash at the bases to make them fall. Columns that fall on their own don't count. Columns always fall in the same direction, don't be under them when they fall! 5-star: I used Lancelot's Ultimate Sword (the last one) and made sure to destroy surrounding enemies before I messed with the pillars. I also had Wooden Belt equipped. 5-star reward: Gawain battle mode voice (number 6) Commonly Encountered Items (except enemy carried): Moonrock Lizard's Tail (treasure chest?) Tome of Feasts Building Block Big the Cat Mask Larkspur Ace of Hearts Ace of Diamonds ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.d.5. Hide and Seek ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: The Cauldron Rampage Unlocks: The Cauldron Legacy, Dragon's Lair Legacy, Great Megalith Legacy Find 10 Hidden Fairies Sonic with Hidden Fairy Lock-on Very highly recommended. Green Fairy Locations, they appear in this level after hitting switches and disappear eventually: 1. On a red block 2. Jump from the jump fairies and just land naturally 3. On top of more blocks 4. More blocks again. 5. Quickly slash the first breakable block on the ground, then jump up to get it. 6. On a red block after a group of enemies. 7, 8 and 9 Use the jump fairies, after hitting one group of jump fairies you have to press the jump button again to get the next group. (easier with Percival) 10. On a block after hitting two switches in a row. 11. On blocks after getting 10 12. Slash first two breakable bricks then jump up (very hard to get) 13. Use jump fairies, then either press jump button again or use lock- on. 5-star: I got fairies 1-4, 6-11 and 13 very quickly with Percival with the item String of Pearls equipped. Commonly Encountered Items: Iron Shackle Building Block Chain Bracelet Lizard Tail Ace of Diamonds Ace of Hearts ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.d.6. Legacy ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Great Megalith Hide and Seek Basic Legacy. 5-star: I somehow did it with Lancelot last sword, with items Lollipop and Poison Ring. I actually skipped most of the robots and got hit once! Didn't expect that 5-star at all. Did take first shortcut by attacking first group of robots and hitting a spring. 5-star reward: Developer Data 10, Gawain's Weapon. Commonly Encountered Items: Moonrock Pendant of Eons Cure-all Broach Poison Broach Joker Ace of Hearts ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.e.

Beat the Clock ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Beating The Cauldron Beat the Clock, Shrouded Forest Beat the Clock, Great Megalith Beat the Clock Unlocks: Dragon's Lair Special Challenge Cavalier Sonic or Percival recommended. First of all, the path crumbles beneath your feet and you then have wide holes to go across, be careful! Electric path, keep going at a steady pace, or the path will eventually give way. 5-star: I used the Knight style Sonic Poison Ring/Soul Barrier trick, with Lollipop also equipped. Poison Ring trick can only be used when Sonic is leveled up enough to have the Soul Barrier skill. Be careful, you can Soul Surge most of it, but remember where the crumbling road is, and after the first giant, there are falling stalactites that will hurt you if you do not slow down and let them fall first. Don't get hit! Commonly Encountered Items: Tome of Rings Violet Peridot ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.e.2. Special Challenge ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Dragon's Lair Beat the Clock Unlocks: Dragon's Lair Rampage, Dark Hollow Boss Dragon Slayer Here's how to defeat the dragon: First watch out for the crumbling pathway, Gawain is good at gliding past this. First dragon part, dodge the fireballs to get close to the dragon's head. Now when you are close enough, the character will jump up, and you slash away at the horn. Second dragon part, now you have to dodge smaller fireballs and enemies, then repeat above when you get close enough. Third, you have to dodge more enemies and stuff. Kill the first line of enemies you see going all the way across the path... cause the dragon when you get close now will push you back, and you often keep hitting these enemies when you do. Now be persistent, get close enough, and go in for the kill and destroy that horn. Also you can actually chop down one of the pillars at the end, and destroy the dragon that way too! 5-star: I used the Poison Ring/Soul Barrier with Knight Sonic with Dragon Killer skill. Poison Ring trick can only be used when Sonic is leveled up enough to have the Soul Barrier skill. I find out when you Soul Surge, over the ground and enemies, you are immune to the fire the dragon breaths! 5-star reward: Dragon Developer's Data Common Items Encountered (more than this): Dragon Claw Burnt Bread Tome of Rings Peridot ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.e.3. Rampage ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Dragon's Lair Special Challenge Defeat 12 Enemies Use Sonic or Lancelot, Sonic is better, though before I knew how to kick the Will-o'-Wisps I somehow did it with Gawain... Basically, you kick Will-o'-Wisp blue energy balls by doing Soul Surge and using the nunchuk to attack instead of the wiiremote. See the central pillars in the middle of the holes? Don't try to get the fairies on them, too hard. Instead use them as an aiming spot, because when you kick the wisps they will land there. Wait till the enemies line up with it, then attack with the wisp. 5-star: I killed 13 enemies, pretty easy I guess. Commonly Encountered Items: Rusty Gauntlet (enemy carried, only found in this mission) Quasi-Magic Stone Burnt Bread Sapphire Turquoise Violet ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.e.4. Collect Rings ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Shrouded Forest Hide and Seek Unlocks: Dragon's Lair Chain of Rings 100 Rings Sonic or Lancelot. Lancelot takes too long I found out kicking the will- o-wisps and the road comes out from under his feet. Ring Rescue Skill helpful. Recommended Items: Paralysis Cure Paralysis Immunity Cure-all Broach First of all, get a few extra Rings at the beginning, there is a breakable rock formation that if you break it more Rings appear. Basically there are blue Will-o'-Wisps you kick in this level by using Soul Surge and shaking the nunchuk. They might reveal more Rings when you kick them. You should win if you Soul Surge thru the entire level, including using Soul Surge without enemies nearby. 5-star: Use Sonic with Paralysis Cure and Gladiolus Equipped. I got over 200 Rings, used Knight style to get Rings from enemies, but don't smash them all or you will end up with a path ending. On the last rail, Soul Surge through the entire thing. Commonly Encountered Items (except enemy carried): Dragon Scale (treasure chest) Quasi-Magic Stone Tome of Rings Gold Ingot Burnt Bread Healing Draught Healing Potion Peridot Turquoise ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.e.5. Chain of Rings ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Dragon's Lair Collect Rings Unlocks: The Cauldron Rampage 100 Ring Chain Try this: Jump for the rings to the left first, then hit the jump fairies, then press left to hit the next jump fairies and you will end up at the top. Now grab all the rings on the ground in a circle. Start from the right of the wall, jump for those rings, hit the mushroom, press left to hit jump fairies, then off those press right to hit some more and make it to the top. Now grab the circle of rings on the ground. Now you can start with either mushroom, but I will use the right one to make the description easier. Jump on the mushroom, then keep pressing left to jump across the row of jump fairies to a higher mushroom, then basically repeat this pattern all the way up the wall. 5-star: I got a 110 ring chain.

Dark Hollow ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 4.f.1. Defeat the Boss: The Dark Queen ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Unlocked by: Dragon's Lair Special Challenge Unlocks: The Cauldron Hide and Seek, Great Megalith Chain of Enemies, Knight's Passage Perfect Challenge, Deep Woods Lancelot Returns Excalibur Sonic! Start with 100 Rings. First there's a new move, you will see at the bottom of the screen you can dodge left and right... not very useful IMO. Anyway, first there is a barrier between you and the boss, slash a lot to get rid of it. Dodge the bubbles or cut through them, it's best to dodge. The bubbles do fill up your Soul Gauge a little though. When the bosses arm comes up, shake the wii remote when the prompt comes up. If you don't react in time, you get pushed back and you loose Rings. Now your Soul Gauge has energy in it. Use Soul Surge to attack the boss and slash a lot. If you wait to attack, she will try to slash you with her sword, but it's easy to avoid. Repeat That is all. Very simple boss overall 5-star: Try to get in as many Perfect Hits as you can. It's a certain rhythm you have to hit, not so you are shaking it wildly, shaken a certain rate. Sometimes your Soul Gauge will even go up a little. 5-star reward: Dark Queen Developer's Data. Common Items Encountered (probably more): Orichalcum Mermaid's Tear Samurai Helmet Cure-all Broach Stone Broach Ice Broach Poison Broach ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 5. Nostalgia! yet again!: ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ (SPOILERS) Here are some things in this game from other Sonic games: Merlina looks just like Shahra from Secret Rings. Other characters: Blacksmith is Tails, Lancelot is Shadow, Gawain is Knuckles, Percival is Blaze, Lady of the Lake is Amy. Battle Mode: Also appearing in Battle Mode are Silver and Jet. Fairies look like Chao heads with wings, Chao being cute creatures you could raise in the games Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2. Legacy Levels are based on older Sonic games, with booster pads, springs and the fact you have to Homing Attack enemies. World Rings you gather in Legacy Stages are from the Secret Rings. Some of the Mission types are from the Secret Rings, as well as the large Rings with a star in the middle (Rich Rings) I read this on the Gamefaqs messageboard and confirmed it, Merlina uses the same spell to summon Sonic that Erazor used to summon the Ifrit in Secret Rings. Music from other games (tell me if I missed some, but I think I have a pretty good ear, or at least I caught the ones that I listen to all the time on my mp3 player, yep, I'm that kind of Sonic weirdo.): Fan Art Videos Music is a remix of Sonic's theme from the Adventure series, "It Doesn't Matter." At the very end of the game when Sonic encounters Amy, her theme from Sonic Adventure "My Sweet Passion" plays. Blacksmith's shop is a remix of Tail's theme from Sonic Adventure "Believe in Myself" Wearing the Medal of Sonic plays "What I'm Made of", if I remember correctly the final fight song from Sonic Heroes. Wearing the Medal of Lancelot plays "All Hail Shadow", a song from Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic 06, Sonic 06 version. Wearing the Medal of Gawain plays "Unknown from M.E." Knuckle's theme from Sonic Adventure series, this is the Sonic Adventure version. Wearing the Medal of Percival plays "Vela-Nova" the Sonic vs. Blaze Boss fight from Sonic Rush. After gathering all the World Rings, you unlock a remix of the theme for Secret Rings by Crush 40 "Seven Rings in Hand." Another fun fact: The gems in this game are the Birthstones; they appear in order in the Gallery (though I am not sure of December's) ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ 6.
