Ok, let's get this over with. This walkthrough was written by me. It is not
to be used ANYWHERE, unless specified by me. Some of the sites included in
this list are gamefaqs, cheatcc, ign, and a few others. This faq is only to
be used for private purposes. You MAY NOT use this guide on your site
without permission. You MAY NOT chop this guide up in any way or take credit
for it as your own. I worked extremely hard to put this faq together, so as
they say "give credit where credit is due". The information to contact me
about posting this guide on your site is listed below. The information
within this guide was written by me and me alone. No information was taken
from the official guide(if there is one) or any other source not specified
within this walkthrough. I am in no way affiliated with Microsoft or any of
the great people or corporations that produced this amazing game. I am just
a college student with a lot of time on my hands and was looking for
something to do.

Ok everyone, my walkthrough is now completely finished. There are a few minor
things I still need to fix, but all the information you will ever need about
this game is here. In this update I have included exact item/chest locations,
more in-depth boss strategies, better formatting, complete Barrier list section
and guide, all mystery part locations, all side quests, and much more. There is
also a new section describing the best places to experience, SP, and Gold farm!
Every area includes a list of items and enemies as well. There are only a very
few things missing at this point. These include items you can steal from bosses,
as well as one time only items. There are only 8 items in the game you must get
before a certain point of you miss forever. If you are interested in completing
the item collection achievement, then check the item guide on this site. If you
use {(Ctrl + F) and type in [Warning] and hit (Find)} if will bring up the 8
items one by one. I am waiting for a response from the author of this guide to
include this in this walkthrough

Alright I finally have all the information about the game. When I play
through my second time which probably won't be for a while now, I will
update all that I left out(which isn't much).  For now PLEASE do NOT email
me unless you have a question petaining to the game, which I will be happy
to help with. I know where all the dragons and the barriers are and just
about all the secrets. So please don't email me with any additional
information, sorry but after still recieving 40ish emails a day, months
after I finished the game and this guide I tend to get sick of reading the
same thing over and over again. So once again, if you need help feel free
to email, but do not email me with info I forgot or something I screwed up
on because it won't be fixed until I play through again. Thank you and I
hope you enjoy the walkthrough!

Well the guide is finally complete!! The entire walkthrough for every
dungeon on the game is done, including all the Side Quests!! On the next
update I plan on adding the Table of content, better barrier list,
tips and tricks, Boss Hp, grammer corrections to the current walkthrough,
and where to find certain valuable items! The guide already has a lot of
good stuff, you can even find out where the Golden Poo Snake, Gold Mecha
Robot, and King Poo are. I hope you enjoy this game as much as I did!!!
This is by far the largest, most detailed, and most time consuming RPG I
have ever played!(Not including MMORPGs, planning to write a Dragoon FAQ
for FFXI soon!)

On a second play through of this game I plan to include what the chests
hold in each area, along with switch my directions from left or right door
to west, east, north, or south door. I am bad with directions and there
for did not include the compass at this point.(I suspect others are too.)

|9) Achievement List|
*********************

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

**************************
|1) Character Information|
**************************

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

|=================|
|-----------------|
|       Shu       |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

|=================|
|-----------------|
|      Jiro       |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

|=================|
|-----------------|
|      Kluke      |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

|=================|
|-----------------|
|     Marumaru    |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

|=================|
|-----------------|
|       Zola      |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

|=================|
|-----------------|
|      Szabo      |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

|=================|
|-----------------|
|     Deathroy    |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

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

*****************
|3)Job Summaries|
*****************

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

|=================|
|-----------------|
|   Swordmaster   |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

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

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

|=================|
|-----------------|
|     Guardian    |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

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

|=================|
|-----------------|
|     Assassin    |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

Another update I need to put in for this job. This is a word of advice, many
boss encounters and enemies in this game have excellent items to steal. Some
bosses even have items you can find almost no where else in the game or only
a few in the entire game. Assassin learns the skills Steal, Loot, and Treasure
Hunt as you level them up. Steal takes items from enemies, Treasure Hunt
increases your chances to steal rare items, and Loot attacks and steals at the
same time. Zola is a character you get very late in the story. She comes with
most of these skills, but you will miss stealing from other mobs and bosses
up until you get her. Most of the notable items you can steal actually happen
after you get Zola, like the Black Belt from Corrosive Poo or the Lei from
Moody Dragon. It is up to you whether you choose to start the game and switch
someone over to Assassin or just wait for Zola. I can tell you, you don't get
Treasure Hunt and loot until higher levels. You may even have Zola by the time
you get these skills! I would recommend saving it for a New Game+ to worry
about, but the choice is yours!

|=================|
|-----------------|
|       Monk      |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

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

|=================|
|-----------------|
|    Black Mage   |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

|=================|
|-----------------|
|    White Mage   |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

Later in the game when fighting some extremely hard booses, like Gold
Mecha and King Poo you will need spells like Previve. So, sooner or later
you will want to level all characters Whitemage to gain this awesome spell.
One White Mage is enough until you are preparing to fight these bosses
though.

|=================|
|-----------------|
|   Support Mage  |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

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

Field Barrier- This is the one skill you absolutaly need to level
Barrier Mage for. There are three different levels of it. It works
by killing weaker enemies on the field when you run into them by
consuming MP. For each level the skill goes up it takes less MP
when you kill the target. Finally when you hit Field Barrier 3 it
only takes 1 MP per enemy that you run into. The point to this skill
is you still get 50% of SP without even having to battle. When you finally
get an accessory with the double SP skill you can recieve 2-6 SP
for every single monster you run into without having to enter battle.
This is a very fast way to level your job to 99 and is a skill you
will absolutaly need if you are thinking about fighting King Poo and
your jobs need to be maxed. One spot I like to use Field Barrier is
near Mecha Base because many robots pop everytime it goes by. Even though
they only give 1 SP with the Eyepatch and Black Belts you will receive 2 SP and
they pop so fast you can just run around behind it killing multiple enemies.
You will level jobs very quickly here if you use field barrier.

|=================|
|-----------------|
|   Generalist    |
|-----------------|
|=================|

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

|-----------------------|
|   5.1 Talta Village   |
|-----------------------|
|=======================|

From where you begin head over to the well and examine it with A. You will
get a MAX HP UP + 1. From here on out, you SHOULD examine almost everything
you come across. From small rocks, machine pieces, and even wells all
contain power ups or items. Even if you check something and it says NOTHING,
that counts too. You will meet a character later that will give you PRIZES
based on how many NOTHINGS you collect. Seeing as how there are 1001 NOTHINGS
in the game and far more other stat bonus's, medals, and items there are in
this game, beyond my ability to list them all. As a matter of fact, it's
almost damn near impossible. So if you're a completionist you should examine
every last thing you come across. I know as I played the game I tended to
follow the border of the area I was in while mashing A to collect as much as
possible. 

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

============================================================================|

point. This battle will end quickly.                                        |
============================================================================|

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

Enemies: Poo Snake

==========================================================================
[ Items: Medicine, Light Crystal, Medicine, Thorn Grass, Stone Necklace, ]
[        Stone Bracelet, Phoenix Talon                                   ]
==========================================================================

After the scene you end up in a cave. Check up on Kluke and Jiro . Now head
over to the save point(the square floating box) and save your game. There is
a chest nearby, so open it for a MEDICINE. The enemy near the chest is a Poo
Snake and they are very easy to defeat. Try to jump into them for a First
Strike(X Button), or attack from behind to gain an advantage. After getting
this chest head West to find another guarded chest. Open it for a LIGHT CRYSTAL.
If you noticed the chest with the BLUE BARRIER to the northeast, don't bother
with it right now. You need "devices" to open them, which you will not aquire
to much later. You should take note of the locations you see these though.
Head North for another chest containing MEDICINE. If you head to the southeast
of the room you will find yet another chest with THORN GRASS inside. 
When all the chest are open one will appear by the Land Shark's fin, do NOT
get this chest yet! 

Climb up the three ramps in this room and collect the items from the 2 chests
here. The ramp closest to you contains nothing. Go to the next one up. There
is a fork in the ramp. Take the left path first. There are just machine parts
to check up here. I found a MEDAL. I am not sure if the items randomly change
or if they are all fixed, but I am pretty sure they are fixed. Go back and
head up the right side. The chest here contains a STONE NECKLACE. Also check
all the pieces of equipment scattered around, no matter how small or big.
Most extra equipment in this game will give you gold or items. This is the
last time I am going to tell you about this, this should be something you
automatically do in EVERY single area from now on. Collecting Medals, Nothings,
and stat bonuses from random objects can be VERY rewarding later. Head back
off this ramp and follow the cave around quite a distance to the next ramp.
Head up here and grab a chest containing a STONE BRACELET. You should equip
both these accessories now.

Afterwards go and collect the last chest down by the shark fin for a PHOENIX
TALON. Watch as the c/s plays and you are brought to the Sky Fortress!

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

You end up on the side of the Land Shark in the fortress.Check the pullies
with rope on them at both ends of the shark. Also check the boxes holding the
Land shark into place. On the other side get the treasure chest for the
MONSTER COMPENDIUM. The two side doors are locked, so head to the Northern
door for a c/s. At this point you meet 3 antagonists of the story. 

============================================================================|
                                                                            |

============================================================================|

After the battle you are thrown from the sky fortress and end up back inside of
it??? You land in a circular room. Run around the outside circle of the room
and collect all of the chests. You will find a LIGHT CRYSTAL, MEDICINE, STONE
NECKLACE, and MEDICINE. Run to the save point, but DO NOT run over the platform
in the center.  Absolutely SAVE YOUR GAME!!!! before you step on the center
platform. There is an ACHIEVEMENT coming up! Step on the platform and you
will hear a voice,shortly after turn and run through the north door away from
the robots.

|======================|
|^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^|
|ACHIEVMENT WARNING!!!!|
|^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^|
|======================|

At the end of the hall you need to close the door. Rapidly tab A in order to
do this. You will need to fill the gauge 3 times. If you can do this without
fighting any of the guards you will unlock and achievment. If you are too
slow you will have to fight the guards that make it through and you will lose
the achievement, hence the SAVE YOUR GAME! It is very irritating to have to
keep starting over because of this, I know I had to do the beginning 3 times
for it. It can be VERY challenging to get this door close before the first set
of robots make it through. Well about 20 times later I managed to get it right.

You then run into a room, they will ask if you wish to swallow the orbs,do so.
The robots bust through the door,and you get your first battle with shadows.
The goal after this battle is to get on the ship by clicking A next to it.
First I usually fight all of the robots that appear. With your shadows you
can take them out with a single hit. You will gain some much needed levels,
ranks, skills, and SP. It only takes about 5 minutes to clear the room.
Afterwards explore the area, there are no chests in this area, but there are
a lot of items to examine. When you've had enough board the ship for a c/s.

In this area run around the outside and collect the chests and check the rocks
and peddles for additional antidotes and gold. The four chests contain
MEDICINE, ANTIDOTE, RUBY, and MAGICAL MEDICINE. Drink from the water when you
are ready to go and head near the ship to push the sign out of the way. On
the path out you find another chest containing a STONE BRACELET.

Enemies: Fat Rat, Smirking Scorpion, Ancient Katydid, Poo Snakes

Your first chance to check out what the world map is like. Explore this small
area and open the chests in this area for a MAGICAL MEDICINE, STONE RING, and
a MEGA MEDICINE.You learn how to group up encounters at this point.If you can
get the Poo Snakes and Crickets together a monster fight will break out and
they will kill each other. Monster fights are very worthwhile, not only do
they kill each other, it will waste their turns while reducing yours, and
you still gain the much needed experience. You should be able to gain a few
levels and ranks here, but it's not really needed. Head into the big archway
now to enter the next area.:)

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

[============================================================================]
[ Large Boulders: Antidote, Medicine, Antidote, Medicine,???(Missed the name)]
==============================================================================

This is the Lot Wilderness - East. You'll see a quick c/s when you enter.
Head to the northeast and open a chest for a THORN GRASS. From your current
position head northwest to the big dead tree. Hit A to push it over. From here
you can climb up and get the chest for LEVEL 1 - FLARE. 

This area is so large that I have listed the items above. You would spend
longer reading this section than it would take you to fully explore it on your
own. Hence, I decided that ONLY for this area I will be lazy. The items are
extremely easy to find you should not have a hard time. I am just going to
give you some general tips about the area. If you see a chest on a high cliff
you need to push a dead tree over like earlier. Search the large boulders in
the area and push them over to reveal items underneath. When you enter a big
open circle and get a c/s about the Fat Rats, stick to the left wall to find
3 chests in close proximity to one another. A few more will be nearby as well.

There are a lot of encounters in this area and I would recommend fighting as
many as possible. You should be able to unlock one new job for all 3 charaters.
Make sure you use your blm on the foes. If charged properly you can take out
all enemies with one spell.(Besides the rat.) Remember to always check that
poo!! Gather some good money together before you enter the Sheep Village.

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

Alright now, another small village. Follow the right hand wall to collect
hidden items and chests. The first chest contains SLEEP POWDER. Keep going
and on the other side of the wagon you will find a SHAPPHIRE. Again traveling
around the border of town you will find another chest with MAGICAL MEDICINE.
The last chest is behind the Item Shop lady. It contains THE WAY OF THE THIEF.

Now it's time to walk around and talk to everyone. There is a villager you can
trade 3 antidotes to and recieve a phoenix talon for each one. Buy the 3
new spells from and magic shop. (Lv -1 Water, Lv - 1 Slow, Lv - 1 Shield.)
Buy stone accessories from the shop and make sure everyone has them in there
slots, stay at the inn, and lastly pick up any extra items if you need them.
The green glowing thing is a warp post, but you can't really do anything with
it at the moment, so just examine it for now. Head near the center of the camp
fire and talk to the people for a c/s. It seems they are looking for someone
named Donpa. When ready, head out of the back of the village gate and someone
will yell to tell their friend they are looking for them if you see them.

Monster Tip: For some reason if Shu uses Wind Sword, the grunts lose their
sword, which weakens their attack by about 50%! Also while casting spells
remember to hit that Sweet Spot baby! One good spell hit right can cause
disaster for the enemy.

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

Walk around the boulder examining rocks if you want the extra gold. Fight
the first Green Grunt and get the chest on the right for FRESH GARLIC. Watch
out for poison status in this area, it will quickly run you out of hp. Again
there is not much to the area. When it opens up I tend to stick to the right
wall and follow it around collecting items. You will notice a GREEN BARRIER
chest in this area, which again can not be opened until much later in the
game. There is however a chest beside you can open for a COPPER BRACELET.
Head back to the wall and keep following it. The next chest you run into
contains STOUT GARLIC. The chest after this contains THORN VINES. Follow the
wall which starts curving west to find another chest with AMETHYST. From this
chest turn the camera angle until you see another chest close by and open it
for KELOLON POWDER. From here head left to explore some more. To your left is
another chest with LIGHT CRYSTAL. Follow the close by crater around for a
chest with 500 Gold. You should heal up at this point because you have your
first winnable boss battle coming up. As soon as you see CHECKPOINT pop up
on the screen, a few more steps and you will be fighting...

NOTE: If you haven't already discovered, checkpoints make it so incase you
die you can continue right from the spot without saving, as long as you
don't turn your console off.

This guy is a...very...interesting character. It looks like a mix          |
between a dragon, a goat, a scorpion, a zebra, and an elephant to name a   |
few.(Oh and my ex-girlfriend to be more specific.) Anyways, enjoy the      |
music and kick some @$$.                                                   |
                                                                           |
Just use regular attacks at first and don't waste any magic. After a       |
little while, Jiro  will tell you hitting the body doesn't seem to be      |
effecting it and tells you to go for the head. This is when you use Kluke  |
to bomb away at the head with her magic spells. Flare seemed to work the   |
best for me, as water doesn't reach the head and wind was weaker. When the |
monster is weakened(he bends over) you can start focusing on the head with |
physical attacks. He will still take damage if you hit the body, the head  |
just means more damage. Have Jiro spam healing spells whenever necassary.  |
                                                                           |
Isn't the music just great! J/K, but honestly it is a nice change of pace  |
compared to the same battle song most RPGs have. Enjoy the victory, you    |
beat the hardest boss yet, although he wasn't much.                        |
===========================================================================|

Enjoy the c/s with Donpa afterwards. He will give you a LIGHT CRYSTAL and
SHADOW CRYSTAL. Run around the crater and open another chest for COPPER
EARRINGS. Afterwards you can save and exit onto the world map once more.

[ Items: Vitality Elixer, Vitality Elixer, Invisibility Elixer, Stout Garlic,]
[        Mega Magical Medicine, Poison Powder, Emerald, Kelolon Powder       ]
==============================================================================

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

If you're feeling brave you can venture West past the Drill Machine for a
chest with INVISIBILITY ELIXER. The reason I say feeling brave is because the
enemies can get extremely tough up here. If you see the clown looking enemy
with a spear, try to avoid them. You can defeat them, but in battle they
continually call for backup. The real danger is when they cast Ground though,
which hits your entire party for 40-60 points of damage. It's not often, but
trust me when I say it hurts. If you see  Head a little more west from here
for a chest with STOUT GARLIC. A little to the southwest is another chest with
a SHADOW CRYSTAL inside. Southwest from here you will see a chest guarded by a
Green Soldier. Once again, DO NOT fight this guy! He hits for around 80 damage
and is still too much for us at this point. Just leave the chest there for
now. When you are ready head towards the drill. You will find one last chest
on the way with MEGA MAGICAL MEDICINE inside. From near the drill you want to
head in a Southeastern direction. You will see a chest up on a circular cliff
not far away. Open the chest for POISON POWDER. From this chest turn and face
south and head in that direction. You will run into 2 more chest with EMERALD
and KELOLON ELIXER. Well that's it. Now go to the drill and resume the story.

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

Outside the drill machine you can actually check a bunch of the rocks and the
lone tree for some items. I only mention this because it can be easily over
looked sense it seems like there is nothing to check here. 

Inside the drill machine make sure you check every knock and cranny for
gold and items. The are 2 chests to open for MEDAL and PHOENIX TALON. Then go
to the two robots you see. Buy the Lv 1 - Cure poison first, then make sure all
three characters have the four copper accessories. At this point, you should
already have 1 necklace and 1 bracelet from chests. Sell all your stone
accessories to get some more gold. Anyways, equip them all, heal at the robot,
buy the other healing items you need, and then save your game. 

All the doors are locked so continue up to floor A2 using the close by elevator.
Open 2 more chests for MEGA MEDICINE and MEDALS x 2. Head through the nearby
door and get the chest on your left for MEDALS x 3. 

Now continue up to the third floor. Check pipes in this area for some goodies.
Mobs will starts appearing on this floor. The robots are very weak to water
and it can one hit kill them, unless they use there skill Waterproof, which
cuts the damage 50-75%. Ignore the path on your right(the ramp) and keep going
around the room and go in the elavator. You will go down to 2B and a little
ways into this floor you will be treated to a mini boss battle.This robot is
manic, he wants to protect his treasure and will do anything to do it, even
using illegal means!

This guy isn't too hard. Just keep using water magic and attacking him,    |
he will fall soon enough. Afterwards the treasure is yours and it's        |
well worth it. The robot basically forces you take take the chests         |
containing a RUBY and MEDAL x 5 as well as the chests and apologises for   |
it! Congratulations you just recieved 23 warp keys and the robot will      |
explain exactly what they are for. Make sure you use one on the warp device|
on the side of you. The cockpit on the 3rd floor is now unlocked too, so   |
take the elevator back up and go to that area. As you near the cockpit you |
will get in a fight with the same robots you where running from at the     |
beginning. Don't worry one hit even from your mage with take them down.    |

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

After the fight watch the cool c/s, search the area, and chase the little
pansy outside. We'll make a man (or bat??) out of him yet! When you take the
door to the left of the door you entered you will be brought back to the first
floor. Open the chests here for NO-GHOST DEVICE, LIGHT CRYSTAL, and SAPPHIRE.
Go through the now unlocked door and to the robots around the corner and stack
up on items you need, then head back down that hall to the 3 chest and through
the other door with the ladder. The area ahead is very long so make sure you
save and you are fully prepared, it takes a little while to explore fully. The
last chest is by the entrance to the Ancient Hospital Ruins and contains
MENTAL SURGE.

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

******************
|  First Floor   |
******************

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

When you start out throughly explore this room. Grab the chest to your left
for MOBILITY BALM. Then head to your right for another chest with VITALITY
ELIXER. Hit the red switch to your right. Stick to the right side of the
room and go behind the desk for a chest with HP UP ELIXER. Now keep sticking
to the right wall and enter the first door you come to, where you will find
some more chests containing MEGA MAGICAL MEDICINE and MAGICAL MEDICINE. One of
them has a trap that will alarm some robots to the spot. Keep using Water
while fighting these mobs and they should go down instantly. After you
search the room head back out through the other door. This is still the same
room you were in before. 

Keep following the wall around. Head to the West side of the hospital wing and
go through the north door there. The door to the south can not be entered
because it is blocked by a WHITE BARRIER. You will get another c/s. The machine
they show you will give you full hp/mp, so remember where this room is. Search
the rooms for more items and a chest containing INVISIBILITY ELIXER. There is
one more booby trapped chest in here which contains LEVEL 1 - SHINE. If you
still have your whm you can use the spell shine, as well as shine sword for
your swm. This spell does a good amount of damage to the mobs in here and will
give your whm a little more punch instead of being useless unless someone
needs healing. When you are finished with this room head out the other exit
and go up to the second floor.

*********************
|Second Floor Part 1|
*********************

Up on the second floor you will run into a ghosts in most rooms. Grab the
chest straight ahead for MAGICAL MEDICINE. Head around the semi circle
straight ahead and look for a light switch to turn the power on. Be ready
for a surprize when you do. Now head back to where you entered this area. From
the direction in which you are running go down the hall to your left and into
the first room on your left. Turn on the light switch near the door and search
the area for a booby trapped chest which contains HEAD DOCTORS OFFICE KEY. Now
exit the room and continue down the hall for another chest with a SILVER RING.

**********************
|Head Doctor's Office|
**********************

Go back to the beginning of the area again and head down the other end of the
hall until you zone. Go straight and open the chest for VITALITY ELLIXER. Now
use your key on the door and enter the room. Open the chest by the desk to get
a MAGIC CRYSTAL RING. 4 mobs of ghosts will appear. Just use shine on them and
they go down extremely fast. Check the door self for a SAFE KEY and go behind
the desk and use it for a MEGA HP UP ELIXER, BLACK MAGIC HEART, and a WHITE
MAGIC HEART. That was definetily worth it. When you are finished go back
to the previous room. Now head down the curved pathway again and take a right
down the hall here. On the left you will see a chest guarded by an enemy which
contains a SILVER BRACELET. This elevator in the center has no power at the
moment. Head down the other hallway(west on compass) and you will see a
flight on stairs, but first head north for another chest with MEGA MAGICAL
MEDICINE. Turn around, kill the ghost, and go up the stairs to the third
floor.

********************
|Third Floor Part 1|
********************

On the third floor look for the switch that is positioned straight ahead.
There are a lot of flame and ice wolves up here. When you fight them use the
opposite element against them. (Ex. Ice wolf- use flare and flare sword to
take them down faster) You can also cause a monster fight if you link them
together. Enter the door to your right and open the chest for a SILVER
NECKLACE. Exit this room and from here enter the room directly across from it.
In here save your game and open the chest for MEDALS x 5. Now head through the
hole in the wall to fight the Snow wolf. Tip: If you run past the Ice Wolf
there is a Flame Wolf and you can link the two. They will start a monster
fight and they will cancel each other element out making them regular wolves
which can be killed in one hit for the same experience! Look for the chest on
your right containing PHOENIX TALON and then head down the nearby staircase
to the second floor.

*********************
|Second Floor Part 2|
*********************

In this area head down the corridor to open some more chests for ULTRA MEDICINE
and MEGA MAGICAL MEDICINE. Now head back and down the other corridor entering
the door on your right. This is the control panel room. Turn on the lights and
flip the switch on the very last computer in here. This will start the elevator
back up. Watch out for some more ghost attacks.Now open the nearby chest for
ULTRA MEDICINE. Leave this room through the other door and you will find your-
self back on the other side of the second floor. Follow the path until you hit
the X intersection and take a right(south) around the curving path. Follow this
to the elevator and hop in. You will go up to the third floor again.

********************
|Third Floor Part 2|
********************

There are many wolves in this area. Run around the elevator to get the two
chests that are being guarded. Use the monster fights again and wipe them
out. Open the chest for SILVER EARRING and MP BOOST ELIXER. There are only two
corridors to go down in this area and they both lead to the same thing. So go
down the corridor that has a chest in it for POISON POWDER. At the end of this
corridor head south to the end. A flame wolf will appear behind you, so
run down to the ice wolf and you know what to do. Your will find another chest
with a TREASURE CHEST KEY in it. From here head north and enter the room on
your left up ahead to use the key on both chests and collect KELOLON POWDER
and MAGIC CRYSTAL NECKLACE. Now grab the last chest in this room for a SHADOW
CRYSTAL.  

Warning: be prepared for a fight before you leave this room. Exit this room
and enter the double doors on the other side of it for a boss battle. Accept
the invitation to help Marumaro out of his prediciment.

This fight can be a little tricky, so start out slow. Everytime you damage |
this monster it will shift elements, whether it is a regular attack or a   |
magic attack. So plan things out before deciding to cast a spell, or you   |
could end up healing this guy for a lot of hp. If he shifts to water use   |
flare and and for fire use water. Remember spells have casting time, so    |
either stick with wind spells or map your way so you can use water         |
and flare to cause some major damage. Even without charging flare and water|
I was hitting this guy for 200-250 damage. With a charged water attack I   |
hit for close to 400. It will only take 2-3 hits like this to take the boss|
down.                                                                      |
===========================================================================|

Run around this room opening the 3 chests for MEDALS x 7, MAGIC CRYSTAL
BRACELET, POISON POWDER, and checking the broken monitors for items. To
continue on, go down the long hall until you zone and see a c/s. Now
activate the Warp Device and save you game. Go through the door to see Maro
searching for his medicine. Take this time to fully examine every part of
this room for helpful items and gold. The pod like things you can open to
get items. I found MEDALS x 3, MEDALS x 6, and MEDALS x 4. You may trigger the
c/s before you checked everything in the room. Whenever you get the chance to
just warp back here to get the rest. That's what I did. Try to stay away from
the back right until you explore as much as possible. Eventually in the back
you will find the medicine and be taken straight back to the drill machine
speeding to Maro's village.

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

Note: There are a few locked chests in Lage Village. Do not worry about these
at this point. I will tell you when you can get them later. There is a special
means to unlock these and no keys or anything will work.

Welcome to Lago Village. Go to your right to open a chest with MEDALS x 7. Now
head to your far left, over past the save point for a chest hidden behind some
trees containing GRAND SHADOW CRYSTAL. Run around the staircase to the side of
the house to find another chest with MEDALS x 1. When finished head to the
group of Devees and let the c/s take over. Before you head outside again there
is an inn you can stay at. In the room on the left you can get a chest with
MEDICINE. There is a chest containing SHADOW CRYSTAL on the side of the alter.

When you are ready exit for another c/s. Follow Maro and head up the stairs to
the back of the town. All the little stop sign things you see around the city
can be checked for item. Make sure to activate the warp device you come up on.
At the top of the ramp you can go down into a hut to find an accessory shop.
If you continue on you will run into another hut that is an item shop. If you 
check the books selves in here you can read some stories. (Valon the Wizard
Part 1 and 2, and another about a Pirate.)

I am not sure about the significants of them yet, but it can't hurt to check
them now. You will find another chest on the wooden bridge containing MEDALS x9.
There is a little gandola close by that is just a short cut back to where you
came up the ramp. 

To continue the story head into the cave. Straight ahead you find a chest with
MEDALS x 3. Don't worry about the right path right now there is nothing up
there. Go to the left for a c/s and Marumaro will finally join your party.

You are brought back into the main building. There is someone selling spells
for the party near the exit to this building. If you are short on gold you
can go outside and farm some real quick. The spells to buy are Cure Kelolon,
Regenerate, and Ground. If you missed any other spells buy them too.

If you head to the left when you leave, you can fight the huge Grunt Soldier
you see on the world map and win fairly easy to collect the chest behind him
now for a MAGICAL CRYSTAL NECKLACE. 

When you are ready follow the Devees instructions head back and follow the
right path. The area down here is largely covered in water. Head to the left
to grab a chest for MENTAL SURGE. Now head back to where you split left and
follow the right wall to get a chest with THORN VINES. Keep following this
wall and you should start to hit water. Around here you will find another chest
with a COPPER NECKLACE. From here head directly north and a little east for a
chest containing STONE BE GONE. Now head to the southeast. You will see two
last chests with GRAND AMETHYST and REPEATER WEED. When you are done collecting
all chests, enter the big shell looking like structure to advance forward.

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

Walk forward a little to find a save point and chest to your right. Open it
for a IRIDESCENT WIND. If you follow the right path around you can collect two
more chests,(WATER EARRING and PRISMATIC CRYSTAL) and it leads to the same
area where the three poos crabs are.

Warning: Watch the Jelly Fish mobs, they use a stun attack on you if you are
detected by them. 

Keep heading into the Sea Cavern, the road only continues in one direction
for now. When you come to another fork in the road, head right, grab the
chest(GENERALIST HEART), then go back and take the left path. You will run
into another little fork ahead, take a left this time. You will run into a
chest you can trade an item to, and it will transform that item. I used a
light crystal and got a Grand Light Crystal back.

When you are finished go back and take the other direction this time. Be sure
to look at the map in this area and take a right when you get a chance to find
a treasure chest you need a fish shaped key for. Go back and check around the
circular area for a chest with ULTRA MEDICINE. Head straight following the
path and over the bridge. You will end up at a dead end with a few mobs in the
area. Kill them and a chest will appear near you, open the chest to get the
FISH-SHAPED KEY! Notice the barnacle across from the chest, examine it quick,
then run back to the chest you can now open with the key. Guess what?? Now
you have the HEXAGON-SHAPED CRYSTAL for the barnacle, so run back to it and
see what happens! After you cross the bridge you hit a checkpoint and you know
what that means! A tough boss fight is ahead. Before you head there take a
detoure right and get a new spell LV 3 - FLARA from the chest.

This is another boss battle that shouldn't be too much trouble. I recommend|
having Kluke(or whoever is your blm) cast Ground to hit all heads for about|
170 damage. I just use Maro with a charge attack and Shu with whichever    |
Magic Sword you choose. This boss will go down very soon with this tactic. |
This guy likes to cause status ailments, including multi-target poison     |
and also single target confusion. He seems to go down fast though, so just |
keep pumelling away. Congratulations on another victory.                   |
===========================================================================|

First thing you should do is remember to cure any left over status ailments.
Open the three chests, which contain CURE-ALL, AMETHYST, and a WATER NECKLACE.
Continue forward to exit the area into Island of the Dead.

Activate the warp device on your left first, then talk to the guy next to it.
Over on the right wall you will find a chest with GRAND RUBY.(I am sure that's
what it was, but not positive.) Follow this wall around to the back to locate
another chest with ULTRA MEDICINE. If you look to your left you will see a
chest close to one of the tents with MEGA MAGICAL MEDICINE inside. Keep going
on the outter wall and right after the wagon you will find another chest to
open for INVISIBILITY ELIXER.  

Now, let's get a little shopping done. You should have plenty of money by now.
Buy the LV2 Trapdoor, LV1 Shell, LV2 Quick, LV Sleep, and LV2 Shadow from the
spell shop. Then head to the items and accessories shops and stock up. For
accessories you should be all set, unless not everyone is equipped with
silver from earlier.

Note: To warp, go to your Menu and select warp. Then select the destination
and you will instantly be taken there. 

Now go around talking to people to gather some information. If you talk to the
lady on the right side she will give you a heaving herb to deliver to someone
in the other camp. Now warp to the Wilderness camp(for some reason the warp
device what automatically unlocked there) and give it to one of the tribesmen
who thanks you, and asks you to go back saying "I love you" to the person it
was from. Again, she asks you to bring another herb there. DO it and go back
again. Ok, i know this sucks, but do it again...This time he will warp back
with you, talk to them to recieve MEGA MEDICINE and EARTH BRACELET. I know it
was boring, but one mini side quest is out of the way and now back to the
main story.

Leave the village and take a quick run over to the forest and enter.

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

This area is full of ghost monster right from the start, and they are very
suseptible to shine spells. The good news: The wolf ghosts flee from you,
at least they did for me at level 16. What does this mean? Well if  you are
looking to unlock some achievements, wolves are easy targets to try to chain
back attacks to. 

Ok, may sure you pay attention to the map in this area. It can be very
confusing. First head straight a little bit. If you near trees with the red
hanging lanterns they will drop and you can get items from them. The first
one you come to drop MEGA MAGICAL MEDICINE. There is one more red pod in this
area you can get for(????, missed the item name.) If you head to the west
side of this little area there is a chest for GRAND SAPPHIRE. Now head up
the north path. If you are looking at the chest it would be to your left.
Up on the path you will run into ancient moths,remember what the villagers
said about moths. Kill them quickly, and a chest will appear with some DEATH
EARRINGS. I always wanted a pair.:) Now I usually head back down the path
we came from and take the south path we ignored earlier. You can get a red
pod here for ANTIDOTE and a nearby chest for THORN BRANCH. Continue on this
path to find another chest with IRIDESCENT CYCLONE. 

Now take the path to your right. You will find another chest containing GRAND
EMERALD. Keep following this path to hit another chest with a LIGHT CRYSTAL.
In this area there are two red pods which both contain enemies. Follow the
path until right before the bridge. To your left is a chest with an EARTH
BRACELET. Head over to the right for a guarded chest with SPIRIT OF THE ELDER
TREE. 

Do not go in the mist, you will be poisoned and hp drains quickly. Head back
to the chest you got the Irisdescent Cyclone from now and continue up the left
path this time. You should be in the area you got the Death Earrings from. Now
at this fork the left path is actually blocked by two chest, so take the right
path. Follow it up and head over the bridge. If you run past the ghost you can
get a chest containing STEADINESS SALVE. Now run up and fight the ghost the is
guarding the tree. Press A on the tree afterwards in order to give it back
it's soul. Now cross over the bridge to the north. There are a ton of chest
to pillage up here. Straight ahead is a chest with MEGA MEDICINE. Three more
are over to the left with MEGA INVISIBILITY ELIXER, LV4 - SHINA, and THORN
VINES. Now head over to the right(Eastern) side of this area for another
chest.(500 GOLD) Follow the path north to get a MAGIC ELIXER. Further along
the path you will run into a fog machine. Turn off the fog machine and collect
the three chests in this area for MEGA MAGICAL MEDICINE, EARTH NECKLACE, and
GRAND RUBY. Now head all the way back to the Spirit Tree. 

Before we head to the Gabo Plant we need to collect some more chests. Head over
the lower western bridge. Ghosts will try to ambush you. Be careful of the
Shooter Ghost, as they can attack you with guns outside of battle. Grab the
three chests here for EARTH RING, REPEATER WEED, and 1000 GOLD. Now head back
over the bridge. There are two more bridges left to investigate. Head over the
Northeastern bridge. Open the four chests here for KELOLON POWDER, PRINCESS'
KISS, WATER RING, and PHOENIX WING. Now head back over the bridge and take the
Southeastern bridge this time.

The Southwestern bridge is actually a short cut over to the bridge that was
blocked by mist before. So take the second bridge north and continuing going
straight for a guarded chest containing WIND EARRING. Follow the only path
north until it opens up. To your left is a chest containing NO GHOST DEVICE.
Start heading south and be careful of the numerous enemies here. It seems an
army of ghosts has gathered in front of you. You have 2 shooter and 3 thiefs
to link and kill, good luck. Grab the guarded chest for THE WAY OF THE THIEF.
Now activate the warp device in front of you. Keep moving forward until you
zone into a new area. You are now in a wide open space and you hit a
checkpoint. Yes, it's that time again!

This guy is a breeze to kill. Have Shu use Shina Sword, Maro use his charge|
attack, Jiro should keep casting Shina, and Kluke I had casting flara over |
and over. You should be doing between 300-400 a hit with every character.  |
With this much damage he will fall in a few moments. Some of his attacks   |
include Kingly Mode(Restores his HP), Summon(Calls on 6 ghosts), Earthshock|
(Damages the enitre party), and a regular attack(inflict stun). If he is   |
using Summon he will hold his weapon in front of him. If you target his    |
Crown with an attack you can cancel Summon out. If he does manage to       |
summon enemies, use an uncharged Shina to wipe them all out. His worse     |
attack is Earthshock and that shouldn't be too bad. You should be able to  |
wipe him out before he becomes a threat. Congratulations another boss      |
battle won!                                                                |

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

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

Seems the Deeves are going to be ok. When you wake up in the middle of the
night head up the ladder. Examine the dresser and cabinet to obtain ANTIDOTES.
Talk to the people outside if you like, but the main goal is to head back
into the city hall. Heartbreak...sniff..sniff(It's ok to cry, Jiro said so)
So after there little dance that remind me of a Disney Sing along song, exit
the city hall and get another c/s outside. That evil Nene was behind it the
whole time! 

There are a few thing to do before we leave.

==================
******************
|Alter Side Quest|
******************
==================

There is a mini side quest to do here before we leave. Within the house there
are little alters. If you go up to them Maro with pray at them. Start by going
on top of the main building and up the ramp. Enter the village elders house
and examine the alter there. Now go down one more ladder and examine the alter
there at well. Open the chest for SHADOW CRYSTAL. You can check the book shelves
to read the continued stories or the Killer Bandit and the Wizard. Head back
up. Go up to Marumaro's house and play at the alter here. Head into the cave
and follow the right path. Enter the first house and check the alter. You can
open the cabinet and dresser for a MEDICINE and ANTIDOTE. Go in the side room
for another dresser with an ANTIDOTE and a chest with MEDICINE. Now head
downstairs and examine plants for items. Head back outside and up to the next
house. Pray at the alter here and go over to the devees for a c/s. Talk to
them to fully restore HP. Go to the next house and pray at this alter, then
open the chest for MEDICINE. This is the last mini alter so now take the
elevator thing back down and enter the main building. Pray at this last alter
and you will recieve a FIRE RING. 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you are ready head for the exit to find out you need to travel through
Gul Mountains to go back to Talta Village. Before you leave talk to the
village elder again. He will unlock all the chests in this village you
couldn't get before. The one to the side of the main building contains ORDEAL
RING. Go into the caves and take a left to find another with FLAME BRACELET.
Now head over to the other end of the caves for a chest with ORDEAL EARRINGs.
Finally leave Lago Village.

Back on the world map you want to head left towards the area where the drill
was.(northeastern) We are finally going to exterminate that lazy bear I told
you to avoid earlier. After that is done go straight to get a chest by the
mountain for DEVEE ELIXER. Head down to the left where the path splits
for two more chests.(GRAND AMETHYST and WIND RING) On your way back head up
the little cliff for a chest with IRIDESCENT WIND. Go back up to the split
and continue east.(this is straight.) Again the path splits, but head to the
right for a chest with (???). The paths both lead to another lazy bear, but
a little to the left is a chest with PRISMATIC CRYSTAL. Now kill the bear
and continue on. To the right there is a chest with FLAWLESS EMERALD. Now kill
the other bear on the path. Now the ultimate goal is the place on your right,
but head up to the cliffs on your left for a chest holding an ORDEAL BRACELET.
Then walk to the gates and enter. Maro gets his groove on and the gate opens
for you! Head up into Gul Mountains.

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

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

As you enter there is a save point you can use and a chest to grab holding
POISON POWDER. Save your game and walk forward. This is your first encounter
with Toripo. Have you been wondering what all on them medals where for?
Well now you have your answer. Buy what you want from him, I bought one of
everything. If you buy something the cost will go up to 4 medals for these
items.

Warning: If you leave his shop he takes off for the aurora Ruins, so make
sure you got everything you want before you exit the shop. Before you use
them, make sure you are not already close to going up a rank. I personally
choose to save them for much later when it's more of a chore to rank up.
When finished open up the warp device thats is front of you. 

Note: The pools of stuff in this dungeon are poisonous. When you walk though
them it is like you are poisoned, but the effect does not stick to you when
you exit them. Also the compass in this dungeon is backwards. North is actually
the bottom of the compass meaning the left side it actually East. For the sake
of this dungeon and for less confusing my direction will be based on the
compass still being North at the top. It is easier to understand this way.

From where you entered take the right(eastern) path first to find a chest
with a GRAND EMERALD inside. Make sure you are still examining everything
possible in every area, for this place it is crystals. Head back and up the
left(western) path after. Monsters in this area are very resistent to physical
attacks, try using flara to inflict some major damage. 

You will see a chest up on your left holding MEGA INVISIBILITY ELIXER and
another chest over on your right with a FLAWLESS RUBY inside. When
you come to the intersection and can go either right(north) or straight(west),
go straight first. You will come across a chest with GRAND SAPPHIRE. You reach
another intersection, keep heading straight(north) up to get another chest
holding the spell LV2 - DIZZY. Now head down the other path going west to get
a WIND BRACELET from the chest. After you do that, it is time to run back south
to the last intersection and take the other way this time. At the next
intersection take the north path, which is blocked off for a chest holding
MEDALS x 5. Now go over to the east path that has a nearby chest containing
EARTH EARRING. Continue down this path and grab the MEDALS x 7.

At this intersection head right(south) first. This Mist walker enemy is a pain,
be very careful. When you get close they surround you with mist, you can
barely see right in front of yourself. Open the chest here for 2000 GOLD. Now
head east through the pool of poison, grab the chest for a FLAWLESS SAPPHIRE,
and continue heading east for another chest containing LV 2 - RESIST. Now head
all the way back through the pool of poison, then continue North. Head east
and up the ramp this time. Grab the two chests on the right for 1000 GOLD and
POWER-SWAP DART. You will trigger a c/s a few steps further from here.

After the c/s grab the three remaining chests for ANCIENT FOSSIL, LIGHT CRYSTAL,
and FLAWLESS AMETHYST. Continue down the path and guess what you find!! Yet
another fork...Grab the chest first for PHOENIX WING. Take the left path
first if you want, but there really isn't much up here besides a green barrier
chest. You can fall off a small cliff up here though to grab a chest
containing MEDALS x 9. This is actually part of the right(north) path you
passed over earlier. So head down the ramp and left(north) to grab a chest
holding a ORDEAL NECKLACE. Continue down this path a few steps to zone back
to the world map. It's been a long rode, but we are finally home.
(For the moment!)

From where you enter head to the right and up the far ramp. You will run into
a chest with MEDALS x 1 inside. Head up the nearby ramp to find a chest with
an ORDEAL RING inside. Examine the rock for a scene. Head back down and
continue on. Don't go near the person you see yet. Try to sneak around to
find a chest on the side of the building with a BROKEN ETERNAL ENGINE. Enter
the private house next door. On the bookself you can read the Wizard Part 4.
Check the cabinet for MEDICINE. Leave and head over the bridge and to your
right for a chest with MEDALS x 7. Go nearby to save your game. Then activate
the warp device. Go over the small bridge and into Grampa's Workshop. Check
the letter on the table to get a c/s. Great news! Now head to Shu's house
next door. You can read one of the books here. Open the dresser for an
ANTIDOTE. You can also open one of the cabinets for PRINCESS' KISS and
another for a great scene. Exit through the other door. When you exit Shu's
house, go to the left and enter Kluke's. There is a chest in here with a key
item ANCIENT PHONOGRAPH, so make sure you get it. There is also a diary on
the desk you should read. There is another on the book shelf as well.
Upstairs you can read volume 5 to the wizard story now. 

Head behind Kluke's house to find Jiro's. Inside you find the much needed
LV3 - HEALA spell inside a dresser! Inside the nearby cabinet you can get
DEODORENT. Search everywhere, upstairs on the right side of the house you
will find all three parts of a new story. Upstairs on the left side of the
house you can open the dresser for MOBILITY BALM. Exit the house and head
back to the save point and go up the stairs this time.

Check all the boxes and grab the chest to the left of the stairs for LV 3 -
WINDA spell! Go up this flight of stairs now to find two more chests.
(MEDALS x 9 and MEDALS x 8)

Warning: When you get near the guy checkpoint pops up on scene, by now you
know what this means! By prepared for battle. Finally go up and talk to 
him. We need to find out what happened here!

At first you won't be able to do much damage to this guy. He will keep     |
hardening his defenses over and over. Eventually his defense will fall     |
though and you can pummel him with flara, flara sword, and charged         |
attacks.(Whatever you prefer really.) It will only be a matter of          |
seconds once his defence is gone until he bites the dust. He will keep     |
summoning monsters, so hit them with Shina from Jiro and any multi         |
target spells from Kluke to knock them right down. This guy does barely    |
any damage with his attacks, so there really isn't too much to worry       |

Go in the Inn and heal up. Talk to the guy on the floor, even though you saved
him he still wants money to stay. oh...but he will give you an ORDEAL EARRING.
On the up beat note, he has new spells, yay! You should have plenty of money
by now, so buy all the spells and the items you need. The new Additions include
Lv 2 - Exract, Lv 1 - Deflect, Lv 2 - Poison, Lv1 - Heal up, Lv2 - Wall, and

VINE, and the cabinet for a RUBY. Head in the room he was tied up in and check
the cabinet for KELOLON POWDER and the dresser for 1500 GOLD. When you are
ready to leave exit the town.

Holy crap! The murals are alive, but anyways, they are very easy to beat.
When you kill a mural a treasure chest will appear. Open it for a GRAND
RUBY. Watch out for the flying enemies! They are hard to get a hit on before
they attack you. Cross the bridge to your right(west) and open the chest on
your right for THORN BRANCH. Stay on this side and go around the corner,
where you will see four chests containing LV 4 - CURE PARALYSIS, ANCIENT
FEATHER, MEDALS x 2, and GORGO ELIXER. When you open the last one 2 different
Hawk Eyes will appear. Kill them and keep moving forward on this side. You
will fight 2 murals on the way. Grab the chest they leave behind for FLAWLESS
SAPPHIRE. A little further there is another mural and his chest contains a
FLAWLESS RUBY. 

The next bridge you see that crosses the gap run over. Backtrack to where
you saw the chest you missed for MEDALS x 5, then continue moving forward
on this side to grab another chest for IRIDESCENT WIND. You have run into
a dead end, so grab the chest for MEDALS x  7. Then go back and recross the
bridge you came over on and continue forward again.

You will cross two more small bridges, fight another mural and get a ULTRA
MAGICAL MEDICINE from the chest. Now cross the bridge over the gap at the
very end and grab the nearby chest for MEDALS x 4. Now start heading in the
north direction over on this side. Kill the mural and crab his chest for
FLAWLESS AMETHYST. Stay on this side and continue a few steps forward for
a chest with 500 GOLD. Now take the nearby bridge west over the gap to the
other side. Murder the mural and grab his chest for a GRAND LIGHT CRYSTAL.
Continue north and grab the chest for IRIDESCENT CYCLONE. Head east over
the gap on the bridge. Open the chest for ANCIENT FOSSIL.

Head south first and kill the mural for a chest with WATER BRACELET. Link
the 2 Strike Cockatrices and kill them to get their chests for FLAWLESS
EMERALD and MEDALS x 9. Head back and go North this time until you see a
c/s. Head over the bridge and head left to find more guarded chests. Open
the 3 chests for 1000 GOLD, FIRE EARRING, and MEDALS x 8. Make sure you check
the surroundings in these areas, I got an agility+1 and Magic attack+1 in
them.Now head the other direction and kill the mural for a WIND NECKLACE.
Continue on and you will eventually zone with Mural Town.

This place is kinda creepy....The murals here are living and friendly. Talk
to everyone, then head down the long hall. You need to examine the black
thing in the middle of the room here to unluck the other door out in the
hall. He tells an amazing story and so the plot thickens.... When you are
ready, go ahead and enter the next room at the end of the hall.  There are
shops here, so stock up on items you need. You should have all the spells
from the spell shop already, but if not, then buy them. Use the inn to heal,
and buy some new accessories at the shop.(You should have better accessories
than they sell, but it stock up on them if not.) Talk to the murals around
the outside and the machine in the center again. Take the door on the left
first. It leads to another room where you can activate a warp device. If you
talk to the kid next to the warp device after you activate it he looks
surprized. Maybe if we come back later something will happen. 

======================
**********************
|Mural Cat Side Quest|
**********************
======================

Talk to the people around the room again and someone will ask you how many
mural cats are in the place. The answer is 8, but you actually need to go
and press A on everyone of them to get them to count. There is 1 cat in this
room. Go back to the previous room with the shops for 1 more cat. Head back
to the very first room you entered in this place to get 1 more cat. Now go
to the shop room again and take the exit to the area you have not explored
yet. In the hall you will see a c/s and get MYSTERY PART ALPHA. Go into the
next room. You will find 5 cats in here! Now open the 3 chests for ANCIENT
FEATHER, PART OF ETERNAL ENGINE, and GORGO ELIXER. When you are finished
talk to the child again and tell him the answer. You will get the LV3 - ANCHOR
spell from the machine in the center for your work. Also take not of the
red, black, and white barrier chests in this room.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As you are about to leave Mural Town a mural asks you to find him a shabby
book which is located up ahead. He also warns about a boss battle that will
come as soon as you exit, so make sure you save again and you are prepared
before stepping out again.

Another fairly easy boss. Keep hitting it with winda, along with winda     |
sword to do the most damage. There is a bad side effect from using Winda,  |
he will keep using Fevor to raise his strength making him stronger. He'll  |
actually go down before he even gets the chance to attack you though. If   |
you are struggling with damage, you should back off the winda spell though.|
This guy should not be a problem unless you are playing the much harder    |
modes. The only other move I saw him use was something that restores ~200  |
HP. Have Maro use his charged attack and Jiro regular attack and it should |
end quickly.                                                               |
===========================================================================|

Keep heading forward till you can take a left(northeast) over a bridge. The
bridge will fall giving you a path down a level. Grab the nearby chest for
MEDALS x 8. An enemy will attack you. Follow the path around and ignore the
bridge for now. You will fight another mural on the way. Open the chest he
leaves for JIBRAL EARRINGs. Check out the grassy area for 4 more chests. You
recieve a SHABBY BOOK, MEDALS x 7, ANCIENT FEATHER, and a REPEATER WEED. Head
back to the bridge you ignored and cross over. To the left is a chest with
MEDALS x 2. Follow the path and fight the mural on the bridge to get a WIND
NECKLACE.

Instead of going down the ladder, go back to mural town. Enter and talk to
the mural on your right. Give him the shabby book and you will recieve
LV3- REFLECT!! Go back to Mural Valley and head down the ladder you made.
Open the chest here for a LIGHT CRYSTAL. Go across the nearby bridge to collect
3 more chests holding FLAWLESS RUBY, WATER BRACELET, and a FLAWLESS EMERALD.
The last chest is a Transformation Box. I put in Jibral Earring and got a
Jibral Ring!(Magic Attack +75)

Go back over the bridge and continue easterwards. Murder the Mural for a
MEGA INVISIBILITY ELIXER. There is another mural extremely close by you will
get a GRAND LIGHT CRYSTAL from. 

Cross over the bridge to your left and grab the chest for a GRAND EMERALD(???).
Ahead is another mural, kill him and follow the path to kill another mural.
Grab the chest that appears in front of you for a PHOENIX WING. Cross the
bridge and the chest to your left is a Transformation Box. But Wait...it's
different. You need to put 3 items in and they can only be jewels. I put
in 3 Amethysts and got a FLAWLESS AMETHYST. Grab the other chest for an
ULTRA MAGICAL MEDICINE. Head over the platform and kill the mural. Now head
back to the fallen bridge collecting the chest for PRISMATIC CRYSTAL on the
way. Now climb down this ladder.

After you climb down, search the chests for BROKEN ETERNAL ENGINE and (???,
I know I suck at this,lol.), and head forward to a c/s and The Path to Jibral.

This is like another mini boss fight. You don't get the cool battle music. |
The tigers are easy to kill, but be extremely careful. They pack one hell  |
of a wallop. Maro was hit for 170 damage and Jiro for 220! They have very  |
low HP though, so they should be dead before they wipe you out. When you   |
fight Dullahan his defense starts out very high, just use ground sword and |
ground spells to throw him off balance and lower his defenses. You know the|
deal by now. Have Maro charge attack, Jiro heal, Kluck cast Ground, and    |
Shu Ground sword. He will fall fast if you use this tactic.                |
===========================================================================| 

You end up in camp with the villagers. If you're a real completionist like
me make sure you examine everything here. This is one of those areas that
you can never return to after you leave. If you are going for all NOTHINGS
look at everything you can see. If you enter the big tent you see a scene
with Jiro. You can re-enter after to search for items. There is one chest to
open here on the side of the item shop tent holding MAGIC ELIXER. When you
are ready to continue go up to the camp fire.

Warning: SAVE YOUR GAME!! It will automatically give you the choice to do so.
The reason is you have a mini game coming up, and if you make it through
with no damage then you will unlock another achievement. You will NOT get a
perfect the first time!

Enemies: Fat Pack Rat, Steel-Eating Tiger

=======================
[ Items: Thorn Branch ]
=======================

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

Hint: The attack pattern is: 

1. Rat in front 

2. Rat in middle

3. Rat on left side and tiger on right side in the middle
  (kill tiger first, then work on the rat)

4. Run to open the chest for THORN BRANCH quickly

5. Knock over the boulders in the path
  (Right as you break the last of four boulders the rats will appear
   immediately)

6. One rat in front on left and one in front on right
   (Take out rat in front left first, then the one on the right)

7. One tiger in front on left and one rat in the middle and one rat in back
  (Wait around left side back to take out that rat, then the right middle rat,
   and Last the front left tiger)

8. One rat in front on right side, one tiger in front on left side, and one
   rat is in back on the right side
   (This is the only one that gave me problems over and over. After you knock
    over the third boulder they will appear. Stay on the front right side of
    the cart as you push it. Run straight backwards to hit the first rat.
    After the battle keep running back and hit the encounter circle to kill
    another rat, then run though the middle of the carts to get the tiger with
    your encounter circle.)

9. Lastly two rats in front.
  (This is easy, just wait right in front and you can link the two of them.)

It took me about 8 tries to get a perfect on this, but I also didn't have this
helpful little guide. If you follow the directions above you will get the 
achievement. After multiple tests these are the best ways to engage the
enemies. Yes, a little frustrating, but the door at the beginning was more
challenging than this. As a minor update, on my second playthrough of the game
I got a perfect on this my first time, even after not playing for 2 years.

Afterwards you get a cool c/s! Be prepared for a battle. You need to fight a
couple tigers. It's an actual boss battle this time though!

This is and isn't really a boss battle. You need to defeat for of the      |
tigers here. They are the same ones you have been fighting up till now. You|
will probably lose Jiro and Kluke almost immediately. It's ridiculous how  |
overpowered these tigers are. I chose to charge attack with Maro. With his |
expand attack skill he will take out 2-3 tigers in one hit. Take the rest  |
of them down with 1-2 hits from Zola and Shu. If Kluke is still alive on   |
her turn I recommend using the ground spell followed by Mow Down from Shu  |
to take them down faster. Anyways you should be able to manage this.       |

This town and the castle are very big. I am not going to give a walkthrough
of everything in this area. It would be too much information. To do the
following it can take a full 1-2 hours. I will tell you certain interest
points, but that it about it. You really should explore this city and the
castle completely. Talk to every person you come across for more background
information. Some people you will have a scene with when you approach. I will
however tell you the location of treasures within the city.

There is a chest in this first grassy area you can grab for a CURE-ALL. Check
all the buildings. There is an accessory, spell, and item shop. The spell shop
has a great selection, so buy them all. One accessory shop you can not access
yet. If you enter the place with the Gorgo you will be kicked out, but not
before seeing all the chests in here. Don't worry we will come back later to
get them. In the vase making place you can get a scene with Maro and another
devee there if you speak to him. In the house next door you can search the
cabinets for a SAPPHIRE and a RUBY. Check the dresser for a THORN GRASS.
Talk to the guy in here for a quick scene. In the accessory shop you can get
another scene by speaking to the lady in here. hmm... In the nearby spell
shop you can buy LV3 - Revive, LV3 - Cancel, LV3 - Watera, LV3 - Slowa and
LV3 - Shielda. Up by Cafe Jibral you can talk to the couple with a baby for
a scene. Enter the Bodyguards building and check the cabinet for BODY BUILDERS
ELIXER. The dress contains a second BODY BUILDERS ELIXER. Open the chest in
here for a BANANA. You can talk to one of the guys in here for another ...
creepy...scene.  If you try to enter Cafe Jibral you will get another scene.
On the side of the inn there is a chest with MEDALS x 3. Across from the inn
in an alleyway you find a chest with MEDALS x 5. Check the bookshelves in the
town and castle. There are many, many books about the wizard story and the
robot one. I think the wizard story goes from 4-16 here. You check check all
objects for additional items.

As you talk to people from the town, you learn after you explore you should go
to the inn. Right past the inn is a bridge, which if you go under you will
find a person that collects "nothing". Of course "nothing" refers to all the
times you examine things and got no items, so "nothing" appears. At this point
I had close to 581 nothings. I got a ???, Stomach-band, Acorn Shoes, and Ballet
Shoes. 

As you enter the castle there is a warp device in front of you. Activate it
and in the lower left corner you can find a chest with ULTRA MEDICINE. Head
in the castle after fully exploring the town. You will see a quick scene on
your way with the old man out font with the puppy. Make sure you check
every room in the castle too. In the room to the right of the stairs you
find the kitchen which has a chest containing GRAND EMERALD. Leave this room
and enter the door on the opposite wall. There is a chest in here with POWER-
SWAP DART inside. Head back out and upstairs. At the top of the stairs you
get another scene. Go in the left door. Head into the ministers open to get
a chest containing MEDALS x 3. Read some of the stories on the shelves. You
can talk to the lady for a scene. Head to the other side of the hall now and
enter the Senior Ministers room where you see a chest with MEDALS x 5 inside.
You will get a scene the minister. Read all the books in here and then go to
exit to be taken to the king. Before you follow the king head down the left
hallway and enter the room. Search the dresser for PRINCESS' KISS and the
cabinet for ANTIDOTE. There is also a cabinet with STEADINESS SALVE, a dresser
with MOBILITY BALM, and another dresser with DEODORANT. Now go and follow
the king to get another c/s. After this c/s talk to both the king and Zola
for 2 more c/s. 

After this head down the stairs. Head back to where the Senior Ministers room
was and enter the room at the end of the hall. Search the dressers in here
for THORN GRASS and KELOLON POWDER. Open the chest in here for ANCIENT FOSSIL.

Seems that you need to head to the lab. You should already know where this is,
but if you don't, it is the door on the left wall from where you enter the
interior of the castle. Go downstairs and open the chest for a GRAND RUBY.
Make sure you stop in the Soldiers Lounge here. You can read two more of the
stories about Valon the Wizard and the Killer Bandit. Exit this room now. 
Enter the Soldier's Quarters before the lab. The cabinets and dressers in here
contain AMETHYST, MENTAL SURGE, and MAGICAL MEDICINE. Open the two chests for
MEDALS x 1 and a ANCIENT FEATHER. Go over to the lab now. Go in the door by
the stairs and talk with Zola. Exit afterwards and go to her room. Speak with
her again for an awesome c/s. Open the dresser for SAPPHIRE and the cabinet for
a RUBY. Open the nearby chest for GRAND AMETHYST. Finally time to return to
the inn, but make sure you stop by the NOTHING guy first. At this point I had
679. I recieved a CHAMPION's BELT. Now in the inn make sure you check out the
rooms before talking to your grandfather. Downstairs you can search in the rooms
for dressers and cabinets containing MAGICAL MEDICINE and VITALITY ELIXER. There
is also a chest in one of the rooms holding a DOG COLLAR. Now head upstairs
and grab the chest for LEATHER BELT. Make sure to check the dressers and
cabinets up here for STOUT GARLIC and THORN VINES. There is also one more chest
with MAGIC SHOES up here. Now talk to your grandfather to finish up. And so the
ominous night begins.....

|Achievement Warning|
*********************
=====================

You see an awesome c/s! Fushira will give you PHOENIX TALON x 10!! Enjoy it
while you can. Head outside of the inn and up into the castle for a c/s. Go
up the stairs and up this flight of stairs as well. Again, up the stairs
here to see a c/s. You have some more button mashing to do. It is fairly easy
this time around. When you pull the fortress all the way in you  recieve
another achievement, so congratulations!

Warning: This is going to be a one time only area again. So, grab everything
you need on the first time through!! You will run into certain enemies that
ONLY appear in this dungeon! Make sure you kill everything here! I recommend
checking out loc182's Monster Guide on Gamefaqs to make sure you kill all
monsters. Search [Warning] in the guide to quickly find all 1 time monsters!
================================================================================

Ok, back again. It seems our goal is to take out the eternal engines. First
head down the stairs. There is one chest nearby, so grab it for IRIDESCENT
WIND. You will get a scene as you near an elevator. First head down the long
path in the center into a pitch black area. If you press A while all the way
against the wall here you will get the spell LV4 - SHADOWRA! Head into the
door to the right of the elevator. Keep going throught the hall into another
room. This place should look familiar. There are 2 chests in here which hold
LV4 - TRAPFLOORA and ELEVATOR KEY. Now head back to the elevator, SAVE YOUR
GAME ON ANOTHER SLOT, and hop in the elevator. There are many boss fights in
here and while they shouldn't give you a problem, if they do you can be in
trouble!!!

This area is a little confusing. I took a right at the beginning(heading north-
west) and entered a room with a chest holding 1000 GOLD. Grab the chest
and head back out. Continuing in the same direction you run into a dead
end with a chest, open it to gain a PHOENIX WING. Now head back to the elevator
and take a left(Southwest) this time. Head into the first door on your left.
(Going straight is blocked by a blue laser at the moment.) In this room go
through the red lazer, which calls a robot to battle. Kill it and head through
the door and in the next room. Take the left path first to grab a FLAWLESS
EMERALD. Finally head through the door straight ahead in to the Central
Shaft. Zola will deactivate 1 of 6 eternal engines in this area.

Now exit this hall. Remember where the blue laser was blocking the path? Good,
take a left(east) when you exit the hall to go deeper in the fortress this
way. Enter this first door on your right for a chest.(JIBRAL BRACELET) Exit
and turn right (northeast) Head down the hall and into another door at the
end. There are a bunch of mobs in this room. Kill them all and explore the
large room. You can collect 3 chest to recieve GRAND AMETHYST, CURE-ALL, and
a BROKEN ETERNAL ENGINE. In case you got lost you entered through the door
on the south, so take the door on the west wall to exit.  Head through the
only other door you can exit from now. Be prepared for another boss battle.

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

The door to the east is blocked by another blue laser, so head through the door
to the north. Deactivate engine 2/6 here. The laser will disengage and you can
head through the other door now. You will hit another checkpoint and face
another battle.

All I can say is finally some tough battles. This guy is like a samurai.   |
He will hit you with turbulence right at the beginning of the battle which |
switches all the characters formation. You will have to spend your first   |
round fixing it. Try hitting him with shadowa and shadowa sword. Shadow    |
seems to cause major damage to him. He will boost his agility with his     |
own special pose after a while and it will become extremely hard to hit    |
him. Just keep at it and you will prevail. His attacks do 100+ damage,     |
so watch out and heal often. He will fall quickly if you keep this up.     |
===========================================================================|

Head through the door on the south wall and deactivate another engine.This
makes 3/6. Halfway there... Back in the other room, exit the now unblocked
door on the west wall. Go in the door on the right and fight two groups of
robots. Enter the door straight ahead for two more chests containing THE WAY
OF THE THIEF and SUPERMENTAL EARRINGs. Back in the hallway you can only
go one way, the other is blocked by a laser. You will enter a room with a
much needed save point and healing machine. Grab the 3 chests in here for SHADOW
CRYSTAL, MEGA MAGICAL MEDICINE, and ULTRA MEDICINE. Head out the door to the
left(East wall) of the save point. Fight the robot here and enter the next
room. Yet another engine you deactivate. This makes 4/6. Back in the room with
the save point you enter another boss battle.

The guy isn't too tough. Hit him with winda and Winda Sword. After a while |
he will start holding bombs in his hand. Attack his hand with flara and    |
flara sword to damage him. If you don't do this, he will attack with       |
multiple bombs and cause 150-200 damage to all characters. He also has a   |
fire attack that can hit all target, but for only 40-50 damage, After you  |
kill him remember to heal up and save again.                               |
===========================================================================|

Head back to where the lazer was and continue down that hall. Go into the
first door on the right, trip the lazer and grab the chest for GRAND LIGHT
CRYSTAL. Fight the robot on the way out and head further down the hall. 
Head left into the next door. Open the chest here for SUPERMENTAL NECKLACE.
Go down the hall to a dead end and open a chest for a IRIDESCENT CYCLONE.
Head all the way back until you can enter a door on your right.(North wall)
You will zone into a room with a teleporter. Run down the ramp and save your
game. Another checkpoint and another boss battle.

Use shadowa and shadowa sword again. His attacks are very fast, but        |
extremely weak. Special Knife is a single target attack that hits for about|
10 - 20 damage. He does have one attack that can hit the entire party for  |
40 damage, but not much to worry about. This boss is on the weaker side    |
overall. He falls quickly.                                                 |
===========================================================================|

One more eternal engine down and one more to go. That makes this 5/6. You
need to split up at this time. Don't worry, Zola takes one way and you take
the other. Save your game here.

Enter the left portal here. You enter a hall with three lasers. I actually
managed to run through the first and third one without tripping them. You just
need to time it right. Even if you hit them just keep running and exit. Be
ready for another boss fight.

with Maro and keep pounding away. Jave Jiro use Zephra on the rare         |
occations that you need him to. Szabo's not really weak to anything, so you|

Time for another mini-game.
=============================================================================

|------------------------|
| 5.26 Mechat Mini Game 1|
|------------------------|
|========================|

This game can be difficult or easy depending on your skill. I tried easy mode
first and completed it with no damage, but I did not recieve the achievement.
If you just want to continue the story, then go for easy and you should have
no problem. If you want the achievement it will be a little tougher on normal.
The main difference is on easy the gun does not overheat and on normal it does.
So on normal you need to fire a little and stop for a little. If you overheat
you will not get a perfect. Pressing B will also fire missiles. These do way
more damage than the machine gun, so fire missle whenever you have a clearing
to. In fact, I recommend only using the machine gun to shoot down missiles and
air mines. You should use the missles to attack Nene himself. The missile
refills come quick enough that you should not run out of them. If you do it
will only be for a second, so just fire the machine gun at him while you have
to. 

WARNING: You REALLY need to pay attention to the machine gun overheating. It
overheats extremely fast. This achievement is eztremely simple as long as you
pay attention to this.

His attack pattern is:

1. Front
2. Back (This is undoubtably the worse part, as he often fires 4 missle at once.
         which is usually followed up by 4 more. Not always, but most of the
         time. Just keep at it until you get lucky.) 
3. Left
4. Right
5. From here he will rotate between left and right
   until he takes enough damage. (Sometimes he will switch to a side for one
   second and go immediately back to the other. I noticed I couldn't target
   him with missles if this was the case.)
6. Another c/s 
7. Front 

Keep pounding at him and he will fall shortly. It only took me three tries on
normal to get a perfect and the achievement. Congratulations on a job well
done.

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

Leave the castle and head back to town. On the way, you will encounter Toripo.
He will give you a GRAND LIGHT CRYSTAL and you have the opportunity to shop
from him again. I had around 202 medals this time around. I bought one of
everything, then 2 of the hearts for each main job.(That is blm,whm,asn,swm,
mnk.)

Back into the town you are told to talk to all the people again for some rewards
....So around the city once again to talk to everyone. It sucks, but
you do get some great items. Jiro's father will give you a BOW TIE. By the 
Sweets Shop owner the kids will give you MEDALS x 10. Talk to the owner of the
Sweets shop for ZEPHYR CHOCOLATE. Talk to the lady at the general store and
let her sell your portrait to recieve BROKEN ETERNAL ENGINE. Lastly, talk to
the owner of the flower shop for a REPEATER WEED. Now enter the Vase Shop
and talk to the devee to get a DESIGNER VASE. The nexy house down has a guy
who will give you THE WAY OF THE THIEF. Head into the item shop and a
Sheep Tribe lady in here will give you PRINCESS' KISS. Now head into the
spells and accessories shop, talk to the guards in here for MEDALS x 4. Talk
to the lady inbetween the counters for a WAR-MAGE ELIXER. You can buy LV3 -
Shella, LV3 - Panic, LV4 - Grounda, and LV4 - Zephyra. You can also stop by
the other accessory shop which was closed before to buy more Jibral accessories.

You can go into the Cafe now. Talk to the waitress and exchange the two Special
Gifts cards for 2 HP UP ELIXERs. Talk to the customers in here for some more
rewards.(SHIELD EARRING and WATER EARRING) The old guy at a table alone will
give you MEDALS x 3. That's all for now, but remember to check back here later.
You can get very useful information and side quests. Make sure you stop by the
NOTHINGS guy now. I managed to gather 806 at this point and recieved a BELT OF
HERMES. Go to the inn when you are ready to continue on. It seems you now need
to make a ring for Kluke. This is a fun little mini-game.

================
****************
|Ring Mini Game|
****************
================

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

Tip: Someone has said that following the instructions below leads to possibly
     the second best ring in the game. Possibly means it may well be the best
     ring. Supposedly the information comes from the official Blue Dragon
     Strategy Guide. I've never seen the official guide, so this is only
     heresay for me. Credit goes to Xepher988 and destin_hd for this
     information. I also recieved an email from someone starting they created
     the perfect ring, but "forgot" how they did it....I will not count this
     information as true until I see it for myself. If you create the perfect
     ring, let me know and I will test it. If it is true then you will be given
     full credit. 

1. Black Zircon
2. Leaf Ruby
3. Turquoise of Love
4. Mad Amethyst
5. Ocean Topaz
6. Forest Sapphire
7. Silent Peridot

When you teleport back there will be a cute girl near you. Talk to her and go
to the cafe with her. In here a customer says something about designer vases
being popular before. I am not sure what to do with them yet. Talk to the
guy at the counter,Lau, to tell him to go to the house near the entrance to
Jibral for a place to stay. Now stop by the Vase Shop and talk to the owner.
It seems he does not want the vases back either(For all those people who
swamp the message boards with what to do with these, you come back to this
shop MUCH later in the game. He will turn them into different vases, which you
bring to Lago Village chief and get an item from!)...Now, exit the city. It's
time to get going.

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

Tip: Around this time I usually switch Shadow jobs to start leveling up other
things. Much later in the game it is imperitive to have multiple jobs leveled
for all characters if you want to beat some of the harder bosses of the game.
For now I usually switch Maro, Shu, and Zola to Generalists and try to hit
level 15 in these jobs. This will give you Skill + 4 and Accessory + 1. It
is extremely useful to have these extra skill spaces and it doesn't take very
long to get to level 15. I usually switch Jiro and Kluke to Barrier and Support
mage. It is very important to start leveling Barrier mage soon. You want the
Field Barrier 2 or FB3 skill from this job. I would have whoever is your Barrier
mage stick with it from now until they get that skill at least to level 2. Once
the other members hit 15 in their jobs I usually go back to their original
jobs for now.

First head east(left) following the wall up on a cliff to open a chest with
MEDALS x 3. Now head in a southward direction from here and you will find
another chest for CURE-ALL. Now take note of the path to the southeast here.
You will be coming back to this very soon. For now head southwest and up a
little ramp. To the left is a chest with ULTRA MAGICAL MEDICINE and to the right
a chest with MEDALS x 2. Head down the ramp and follow the wall west. Go right
past the gate you will see and keep following this wall. It will lead to two
chests holding FLAWLESS SAPPHIRE and FLAWLESS AMETHYST. Now head a little north
and up on the ramp for a PART OF ETERNAL ENGINE. Right below you, you can see
another chest to get for a MEDALS x 1. Keep heading west/northwest until you
can go up another cliff. It will be right near Jibral and you will get another
chest for a IRIDESCENT WIND.

There are a lot of mobs in this area. They pop all over. Fight to gain some
more ranks and levels, or at least make sure you kill one of each new enemy
for your monster dictionary thing...Use winda on the flying foes and grounda
on the land foes. And holy crap, I don't know if it's grounda itself or my new
ring with magic attack 150+, but grounda is doing 500+ on enemies in this
area. BLM is not even my job at this point. I have it switched to support
magic.:o  

Now head to the front of Jibral. Go to the southeast now. Remember the path
I told you to remember earlier. Go down that way now. This long path leads to
exile forest, there are two chests on this path. Grab them to obtain a LIGHT
CRYSTAL and MEDALS x 7.

(You should really visit the Gorgo Village through Exile Forest. It is an
optional area, but getting there isn't tough. Please look in the Side Quest
Section below for instructions. Not to mention there is another warp device to
activate there. To navigate to the Exile Forest Section hit [ctrl + F] then
type in [Exile Forest] and Click Find. To get back, just type [Jibral
Highlands])

Ok, time to start making our way to the next area. Facing south from the
castle you want to go down the right path(northwest). You are going to the
dirt road type area. The monsters are even tougher in this area, so if you
really want gold and some levels this is the place for now. Shadowa seems to
work best against the orange grunts. 

When you come to a open area in the road, head left to grab two chests for
REPEATER WEED and MEDALS x 9. Then turn and go the other way. Stick to the
right side for yet another chest holding ANCIENT FOSSIL. Just keep sticking
to the right and you will find 2 more chests with POWER-SWAP DART and GRAND
SHADOW CRYSTAL. The chest with the grand shadow crystal will have an orange
soldier guarding it. He can be a little difficult, but not too bad. Keep
following the wall until you finally reach Laser Fields.

I would recommend leveling outside for a while though. The experience is
great and it shouldn't take too long. I was level 29 when I entered Laser
Fields.

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

Activate the warp device right away. Just entering this area you can already
tell it is going to be a pain in the @$$. It is more open then the areas
we have been to lately. These purple things pop out of the ground then
continue to fly and attack you...They are easy to kill though. One hit from
a physical attacker will do the job. Go down the little hill and kill the
turtle things on the right for a chest with HP UP ELIXER. Head east from this
chest to run directly into another chest for IRIDESCENT CYCLONE. Kill the
nearby bear, then follow the little path to find a chest with HP UP ELIXER.
Now you want to continue northward and head east the first chance you get for
a chest guarded by 3-4 Flying Needle enemies. Open it for BROKEN ETERNAL ENGINE.
From here continue north to find another alcove with a bear protecting a chest
containing a GRAND TRIBES' RING.

Now head back south and ignore the first path west, but take the second. There
is a chest up here guarded by a purple ballon holding a DOG COLLAR. Now you
want to head up that path I told you to ignore. On this path head to your left
to find 3 chests. Kill the 2 bears and open them for DEVEE ELIXER, HP UP ELIXER,
and THORN BRANCH. Go north and kill the turtle for a chest with 200 GOLD. Keep
following this path north up the twisty road until you run into Pyro-Rats!
Kill them using Grounda or some other attack that will hit all them at once.

You will get a c/s at the top of this hill. What the hell is going on??? This
is where things get interesting. If seems a "Death Star" is trying to kill you.
You HAVE to keep moving, the hits from it only drain 15 hp, but many can be
damaging, and they keep firing. This part is going to be funny, irritating,
and everything else inbetween.

Run to the north quick and grab the chest for a ULTRA MEDICINE, then follow the
cliff down west to get a PART OF ETERNAL ENGINE. If you head to the directly
east you can get another chest with HP UP ELIXER inside. From this chest head
directly north, you can avoid the two path rats to the side if you head this
way. As soon as the area opens up again head all the way west to kill 3 rats
grouped together to find 2 chest for HP UP ELIXER and ANCIENT FOSSIL. Run up
the small cliff to the west to find another chest with MEGA INVISIBILITY ELIXER.
From this chest follow the nearby path that heads west.

You will run into a Centipede Robot. Hit the centipede with watera and he
will die fast. The beams will stop chasing you in this area for now. They
start up again right after the battle. 

In this area head south(left) to the top and look for the two
land crabs to kill, grab the chest right in between them for GRAND SAPPHIRE.
You want to go north now and follow this path around to bring you right into
a chest containing FLAWLESS AMETHYST. Go south from here and you will see a
rat guarding a cave. Kill the rats and in the cave is a chest with GRAND TRIBES'
EARRING. Go southeast(left) from here to get another chest with ULTRA MAGICAL
MEDICINE. Run back towards the cave and take a few steps to your right. 
Finally you get another c/s and you made it to safety!

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

This town is small and easy to explore, so enjoy the break while you can. To
your left is a chest with a GENERALIST HEART. As you go around the town make
sure you speak with all the robots to get some great information about the
war of the past and how they came to be. Start with the building on the
right, the inn, and make your way around. In the houses you can read many of
the robots stories here. There is a warp device to activate over on the right
side of this area on the side of the house next to the inn. In the house next
to the inn you can also open the dressers for a GRAND SAPPHIRE, BARRIER MAGIC
HEART, and MEDALS x 3. There is a chest in here that holds a BARRIER MAGIC
HEART as well. A robot living here with also change medicines to mega medicines
for free, but it is time consuming. Exit and activate the Warp Device around
the back side of this house.

Continue into the next house in line. You can open 2 dressers in here for
ULTRA MEDICINE and a LIGHT CRYSTAL. There is also a blue barrier chest in here
to take note of. Exit and skip over the next building, the big one with the
symbol on the door. Enter the house after this. There is a guy outside that
will completely restore your MP for free! Inside there are 2 dressers to check
for MAGIC ELIXER and SLEEP POWDER. There is a second blue barrier chest
within this house to take note of. Leave this house and head behind it. You
talk to a robot and he heads off to start working. Now enter the next house in
line. You can open 2 more dressers here for GRAND EMERALD and GRAND RUBY. Yet
another blue barrier chest in here you can't open yet. Leave here and head
next door to the General Store. 

At the store make sure you equip negotiations if you have it. Do not bother
buying mega medicine anymore. If you buy medicine instead which sells for 30
gold(15 with 50% 0ff) compared to mega medicines for 100 gold. The reason I
say this is because that robot I mentioned at the inn will turn you medicine
into mega medicine for FREE! You can only do one at a time, but still you
save a lot of gold. If fact if you have the patients, this is one of them
tricks on how to make Unlimtited Gold!! Although fighting monsters is MUCH
faster, I thought I would mention it. All items will be 50% off, this will
save mega money.You can buy items, accessories, and spells from the machine
here. You should already have all the spells. They do have some nice
accessories however. That robot you caught stacking with be floating around
near the entrance on the town and will fully restore you HP if you talk to
him. Damn, I like these robots after all.

When you are ready continue go through the door in the middle to the temple.
You get a scene here, when finished head through the door next to the warp
device. Talk to the robots in this area to find out you can get rid of all
the blue barriers that have been in the way. Head back to the temple and
through the left door. Another battle awaits!

This guy takes some strategy to beat. Every round attack with watera from  |
your mages first. This will extinguish the flames on Kirin. If you attack  |
without extinguishing the flames he will counter with Blazing Pillars,     |
which is about 50 damage to a single character. Watera sword WILL work to  |
extinguish the flames as well. I previously stated that it wouldn't. I     |
don't know what I was thinking at that time. After you get rid of the      |
flames you can attack with melee. As soon as his flames come back, do      |
this again. If you use flara or any fire attack it will heal him. So make  |
sure you stay away from this. His hind-leg attack only does 15-30 damage,  |
but also stuns one of the heroes. He has an AOE, but it only does about    |
30-60 damage. I managed to steal a GRAND RUBY from him. Keep the beating   |
up and it will be over soon.                                               |

Congratulations all the blue barriers in the world are now unlockable!

The blue barriers in this room will fall right after the c/s. You can not
collect the GENERALIST HEART and MAGIC SHOES from the chests. A complete
Barrier list is at the very end of this walkthrough. For now you should recheck
the houses in Baroy to get the 3 blue barrier chests here. They contain a
BARRIER MAGIC HEART, a FLAWLESS SAPPHIRE, and a GENERALIST HEART. Let's finish
this town before we seek out the rest of the Blue Barriers. The next section
of the guide will cover the walkthrough of blue barrier chests.

Now, you should head back into the door near the Warp Device to continue on.
In here, all the barriers will be gone. Go in the door to your left and open
the chest for BROKEN ETERNAL ENGINE. Exit the room and follow the left wall
around. Make sure you talk to all the robots. One will cure all your negative
status ailments. There is also a new item, accessory, and  spell shop in here
from the robots you freed. The spell shop and item shop have exceptionally
great and rare things. Make sure negotiation is equipped and load up on
everything that you need. I was able to buy LV4 - Quake, LV4 - Attack Up, and
LV4 - Quicka from the spell shop. If you're short on cash, I wouldn't recommend
the unlimited gold trick above( as it takes too long, and also it is quicker
to kill enemies for gold, while you level too), but it you are a little short
on cash, go ahead. I only use this trick to save money on buying mega
medicine myself. Go into the door the other door by the entrance to this area
to find a chest with a LIGHT CRYSTAL. Head through the door near the new spell
shop. You will exit into the Underground River!

First warp to Talta village. Leave the village and head into the nearby caves.
This is where the Land Shark took you at the beginning of the game. Open the
barrier blocking the path. Head to your right to find and open the Blue Barrier
chest. 

Now, you may have noticed the huge Poo Snake hanging around down here.
This is the Jumbo Poo Snake. I was able to beat him now, but he almost got
the best of me. I got hit with an AOE for 200-250 damage a person. This is a
OPTIONAL boss battle. This will actually be covered in the King Poo Side quest
section at the end of this guide. If you want to fight this one now go ahead,
but you CAN wait until you come back at the end of the game to fight King Poo.
I would however recommend fighting him now. The chest behind him will give you
an ANCIENT WARRIOR'S BRACELET. If you open the chest behind him the Corrosive
Poo Snake will appear. He isn't actually a boss, but his difficulty is equal to
that of Jumbo Poo. Corrosive Poo is the reason I recommend fighting these
enemies now. Corrosive Poo has an item you can steal that will double your SP
gain! Sense he is not a boss, you can steal it from him, then flee from battle.
Zone out of the area and come back and steal again. You should do this until
you have 5 BLACK BELTS. You want one for every character! Make sure you have
the Loot, Steal, and Treasure Hunt skills equipped on your assassin(Zola). It
should take you about 30-60 minutes to get 5 of them. I am going to give
him a boss battle section below the Jumbo Poo one because of that!

For this boss battle I recommend linking it will one of the regular Poo    |
Snakes in the area. Use the first battle to get your support spells up. You|
will want to buff your defenses and speed up your turns now. If you are    |
doing this fight at the first available chance after getting the Blue      |
Device it can cause you some problems. Jumbo Poo has extremely low HP, but |
very deadly attacks. He has a Putridbreath AOE attack that will hit        |
everyone for 200-250 damage. This wiped out 3 of my characters in one hit. |
By this time I had a few hits on him already and one more hit killed him.  |
I would recommend flara and flara sword to dish out some good damage. I    |
did not choose to charge attack in this battle at all. I just hit him with |
regular attacks and flara. This battle can be extremely difficult at this  |
point. If you choose to do this battle at the end of the game, when you    |
go for King Poo, this will be an extremely easy boss battle.               |

                                                                           |
Ok, you want to start off by stealing the Black Belts before you consider  |
killing this guy. When you kill him he will no longer respawn. You should  |
equip the 3 skills I told you about above.(Steal, Loot, and Treasure Hunt) |
Now I recommend only using Loot and Treasure Hunt to get the Black Belts.  |
I attempted to use Steal and I went 0/8 on the Black Belt. I started using |
Loot and nailed 4 in a row!                                                |
                                                                           |
So in order to get going, back attack Corrosive Poo. I usually ONLY defend |
and heal with the other characters. Then I have Zola Loot a few turns and  |
I usually get an item off the boss by then. If you get an Ultra Medicine,  |
flee from battle, zone out of the cave, and come back in. This will reset  |
him everytime. If you get a Black Belt you need to do the same thing       |
anyways. Repeat this process until you have a Black Belt for all 5 of your |
characters. After this you are ready to fight and kill him!                |
                                                                           |
For this boss battle I recommend linking it will one of the regular Poo    |
Snakes in the area. Use the first battle to get your support spells up. You|
will want to buff your defenses and speed up your turns now. If you are    |
doing this fight at the first available chance after getting the Blue      |
Device it can cause you some problems. Corrosive Poo is like the opposite  |
of Jumbo Poo. He has extremely high HP and his defense isn't bad either. I |
got lucky and critical hit him with flara sword for 800 damage first       |
strike. It seemed to me Flara sword was the best attack to use on him, even|
the spell flara was not as damage. Corrosive Poo also has very damaging    |
attacks, but they are all single target. I only saw single target attacks  |
anyways. He will hit for 200-300 damage, which will wipe out of almost     |
wipe out a character every turn he has. If you have Phoenix Talons and the |
revive spell you should be all set. Just revive everytime someone falls    |
and keep slowly whittling away at his heath. He will go down eventually.   |
If you are doing this early in the game, King Poo will not appear, but if  |
you are towards the end of the game he will appear. Please look to the     |
side quest King Poo section to read strategies on him.                     |
===========================================================================|

Teleport to the Wilderness camp and grab that chest, then walk out the
entrance into Lot Wilderness East. Head north and grab this chest, then
teleport to the drill machine. Head up the elevator. Go up to the control room
and take the elevator there down. Head east and take the elevator on your
left. Head through the nearby door and grab the chest. Exit the drill
machine/warp to Lago Village. Now run to the Underseas cavern. Just keep
heading forward in this dungeon. When you come to an intersection where you
can go right(south) or straight(east), head right and you will run into it.
Open this chest then warp to Alumaru Village. This chest is behind Jeelala's
mansion on the left side. Open it and teleport to Jibral. The last 2 blue
barrier chests are here. Head into the lab in the basement of the castle,
then through the door near the stairs in here to find one of them. Now warp
back to Jibral(speeds things up) and head to the entrance on the town. This
one is through the gates at the very beginning of the town. We have one more
to go. It's not a barrier chest, but it's protected by a barrier wall. Warp
to Ancient Ruins Hospital. Run back to the elevator and choose the second
floor. The barrier is in the hall around the area where you entered the Head
Doctors Office. Grab this chest and warp back to Baroy.

Congratulations! You now have opened all the Blue Barrier chests! Head back
to Baroy and enter the Underground River to continue.

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

This area is simple to navigate. The path only goes one way, so you can't really
get lost. Open the chest on the way for a PHOENIX WING. On your way and kill
some mobs. The Kelolon are easy foes that will flee from you. Just like you did
with the wolves at the beginning, you should back attack as many of these as
possible. We want to make sure by the end of the game we hit 100 back attacks
for another achievement. The snakes in this area have an attack that will turn
you into a kelolon, but your whm should have cure kelolon spell to take care of
this. If not you will return to normal right after the battle anyways. One
regular ground attack will kill all the kelolons to make the battles easier. If
you take control of a Viper with the Assassin's Control you can wipe out the
whole enemy party with tempest. Watch out because very soon you will run into
MOON BEAMS again!!

Ok, now this is getting old very fast... At least we know we are on our way to
shut these damn things off. The area is very small here so keep moving foward
and they will stop. As you come across the path ahead you will notice a bunch of
kelolon right below you. The perfect place to continue your assault on them.:)
When the path splits stay on the upper(left) part to get a chest for a REPEATER
WEED, then go back and down the lower path(right). Again go north to get a
chest for a GRAND RUBY. Now turn around and head down the path you passed, it
will be on your right now. It's the eastern path with a group of Kelolon at the
end. There is a chest at the end with an ANCIENT SORCEROR'S NECKLACE inside. 
 
Follow the path around the corner and stay on the lower left path for a chest
containing BELLYBUTTON RING OF WIND. Now head up the nearby ramp and you will
see another chest on a cliff, which you should get for STONE SHOES. Follow the
path south killing all the kelolon in your way. You should have managed to hit
level 30 with everyone by now, so congratulaions on unlocking another job!

Warning: In the next part there is an optional boss to kill. He is one of the
dragons from the 5 dragons side quest. When you kill almost all of the kelolon
in the area I describe below, he will attack you when you go to leave that area.
If you kill them to the point where there is less than 4-5 left he will appear
and attack. So if you don't want to fight him, make sure you leave a good
amount left. This boss is not that difficult to defeat, if fact he is very
easy. At this point all of my character where level 34-35, this is after I
killed all the kelolon there and gained a few more levels. This boss has an
excellent accessory to steal just like the Corrisive Poo, so it is well worth
it to fight him now to get a LEI(experience doubled). There are only a total
of 3 Lei in the entire game and 1 of them is extremely hard to get. It takes
1400 NOTHINGs to the NOTHING guy. The problem is, it can be very irritating
to kill all the Kelolon in battle and then not steal the Lei and get a medicine
instead. I was lucky and got it the first time though. I would recommend using
Field barrier to kill all the kelolon quickly. I would then exit the area into
the Ancient Factory and come back to kill the Kelolon for exp. Do not get it
twisted though, the other 4 dragons are a force to be reckend with. You will
need to be level 50+ with multiple jobs leveled to take the rest of them out.
You can find out more information about this in the side quest section of this
guide. You can also choose to do this much later in the game if you want to,
just remember to look in the side quest section at that time. Below the next
paragraph is the boss battle information for this dragon.

You see a save point ahead so save your game. If you are facing the save point
you can head south or north. Head north up the path first to enter Kelolon
heaven. There is a blue barrier in the way but if you take it out, you can go in
and continue to get your back attack count way up! They are going to start
fleeing so run right up and keep attacking one after the other. If you want to
try another achievement try linking ten groups together, they are fast so I
stuck with back attack, but you may be able to pull it off here. Kelolon
actually give extremely good experience points. Linking 3 together with get you
about 1300 experience. It is definetely worth taking the time to wipe them all
out. Anyways kill as many as possible and grab the two chests for a GRAND SHADOW
CRYSTAL and a GRAND WARRIOR'S NECKLACE. Now go to exit this area and you may be
attacked!

The moody dragon is going to be the easiest dragon in this side quest you  |
will fight. Do not forget to equip the Treasure Hunt and Loot skills and   |
steal the Lei. Unlike the Corrosive Poo you can not flee and get multiples |
of these. You will need to soft reset if you don't get it in your first    |
battle. He is extremely fast, usually he will attack 2-3 times when his    |
turn comes up. His attacks are mostly single target hitting for 50-60      |
damage. Everyntime you attack him he will get enraged and power up. Even   |
after his power up he is not too dangerous. When he is all the way powered |
up you will see a message saying he is "absolutally furious". Keep         |
attacking and he will become exhausted and power down. Shadowa and shadowa |
sword seem to do a good amount to damage to him, so keep wacking away with |
this. He does not have extremely high HP or damage, so it shouldn't take   |
more than a few rounds to kill him. Heal with Zephyra if you need to and   |
soon you will defeat him. One down and four more to go! Make sure you pick |
up the chest he drops after for a Moody Dragon's Fang. This item is        |
nothing right now, but later you trade it along with the other 4 dragon    |
fangs for one of the strongest accessories in the game.                    |
===========================================================================|

Head back to the save point and the other direction this time. You will run into
Toripo again. Buy what you want from him now, because he will run away when you
exit his shop. Continue into the Ancient Factory!

Ok, yet another Ancient place. You will be thrown into a fight with some new
robots that have shields. You can NOT beat these guys. After your first hit on
them flee from the battle. 

You must avoid all the robots with shields in this area. The other ones you can
fight and beat, but not them. In this half on the room there are four chests to
grab. One is directly to the south and contains a POWER-SWAP DART. Then climb
the stairs to grab another chest guarded by a Gnashing Imp Trap for an ANCIENT
WARRIOR'S NECKLACE. Head back over the stairs. The other is to the far west end
of the room and contains MEGA MAGICAL MEDICINE. From this one head a little
north to find a fourth chest holding a GRAND AMETHYST. Near this chest head up
the 3 steps and jump on the conveyor belt. You will notice the red arrows by
the steps show which direction the belts flow.

Go to the upper left(Northwest) side of the room to grab another chest for GRAND
SHADOW CRYSTAL, then head in the bottom left(southwest) door, the other has a
barrier inside it. In this new hall, take your first left and then left again to
see two chests right there. The chests contain a SHADOW CRYSTAL and a LEATHER
BELT. If at any time you want to get back to the beginning, go through the lower
door on the same side that you entered on. There is a belt there that will take
you right back to the beginning of this factory. For now exit there and grab the
chest for an ANCIENT WARRIOR's NECKLACE. Do NOT ride the belt back, head into
the door we exited from.

Go through the door at the end of this hall to enter a rest area! Finally, now
grab the two chests for MEDALS x 15 and LV5 - SHIELDUS! Use the nearby machine
to fully restore your lost HP/MP, then save at the save point. Exit this room
through the north door. Continue down this hall going north and enter the
double doors ahead.

You enter a huge circular room. You will get a c/s when you walk a little ways
in. Kill all of the robots in this room. Remember watera and watera sword on the
robots to cause some huge damage. In the center you can get two chests for a
ANCIENT WARRIOR'S BRACELET and GRAND EMERALD. After you kill all the enemies
and get the chests head up the stairs in the room. Follow the ramp up, you
will pass a white barrier chest on the way. When you see another chest on your
right a Imp Trap will drop down. Link this with the rat, kill them, and open
the chest for a CURE-ALL. When you reach a platform something is amiss...There
are a bunch of robots, but they seem turned to stone and the only thing moving
is a rat. Kill it, and the robot he was in front of will come to life! The
robots all come to life in a certain order. You may need to run very close to
them so they awaken. So run around fighting the ones that come to life until you
kill them all. MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS!!! A chest will appear after with
"MYSTERY PART BETA" inside! Finally we have the second part! (third if you got
Mystery Part Un from the Exile Forest/Alumaru Side Quest!)

As you run up the ramp by the chest a Jumbo Ghost will appear. Use Shina and
shina sword on him, he is not hard to beat. Ahead you will fight a broken
barrier robot, kill it to get the BROKEN BARRIER DEVICE key item. Head though
the door to exit.

As soon as you exit you get a c/s. Just run around inside the barrier for a
while and the story will continue. After this, you need to go up to the barrier
and choose to shut it off in order to continue on.

NOTE: I completely overlooked the RED BARRIER DEVICE here. It says you recieve
it from the Broken Mecha Robot here. I noticed it in my inventory after I was
into disc 3. You won't be able to use it for a little while longer at this
point. We need to finish a few more events before we can Warp again.

Ok, so they didn't come up with the most original names in this game. I mean
come on, this is 4-5 "ancient" places we have been to so far. At least the
dungeons and backgrounds are beautifully done. The naming convention is really
starting to suck though... 

Anyways, examine the cell and soon you will be out. Check all six cells in this
little area. You can't let Jiro out yet, but talk to him anyways. Activate the
warp device in the next cell up from Shu's cell. In the next cell north from
the Warp Device is a cell with a chest holding MEDALS x 3. Head into the cell
across the hall to kill a rat and open another chest for an ANCIENT FEATHER.

Continue through the big door to the north when you are ready. As soon as you
enter the next room you will fight the robot here and he will drop the DUNGEON
KEY. Go back and let Jiro out of his cell. Go back to Shu's cell and save. Exit
"D-block, mighty mighty D-block" and use watera sword on any robots you
encounter to kill them with a single hit. In this area run to the right and you
will see a switchboard with red and blue lights. Examine it twice and then head
all the way down the hall and enter the door on the right(south wall).

In the first cell here to the right is a ghost that will appear, and whether you
attack it or it attacks you, this ghost will cast zephrus on the party to heal
them and then will flee from battle. You can not kill this ghost and he will be
there again and again. So, if you need to heal at all remember where he is and
even if you don't, you need him for the monster book. The cell across the hall
has a chest with an ANCIENT WARRIOR'S NECKLACE. In the next cell up from this
one you find Zola. Release her and head across to the next cell for Marumaro.
In Marumaro cell there is a Copper Poo Snake you can fight. It seems Kluke is
being held in a different area. Head back out into the hall and run back to the
red and blue switchboard and examine it again.

|Switchboard Puzzle Solution|
*****************************

DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU WANT TO SOLVE THE PUZZLE YOURSELF.
You will notice that all of the lights are turned on and they will mention that
is seems to have something to do with the middle cells. This one actually took
me a minute to figure out. Then I began to realize that red obviously means stop
and blue probably means go. So I went back to the cells and noticed that only
thing you can really do is open or close the cells. So close all of the cell
doors on both sides except for the cells in the center on both the left and the
right. This will do the trick and you can continue.

Right inside the door you are forced into another battle. Head forward to fight
some more robots after. You come to a T intersection ahead. Take a right(east)
and make sure you go into the door down this end first. All that is here, is a
chest with a white barrier, but at least you know the location for next time.

Head back into the other hall and head all the way down to the west end to enter
the door. After a few steps you will get a c/s and it's time for battle!! Save
your game before you near Nene. There is a save point of the side of you. Enjoy
the new battle music, it is kinda cool. Like a bad @$$ rock song in slow motion,
real slow, but still great.

Take out the group of robots. With no black magic to rely on use Mow Down and
charged monk attacks to damage everyone. Shina is also great if you don't want
to wait for 8 robots to keep attacking over and over. The first group will fall
and now it's time for the second. Things are not looking good....
=============================================================================

***************************
|The Chase is on Mine-game|
***************************

Time to run like hell and dodge robots coming at you.This can be either hard or
easy. Surprizingly you can get close to most robots where it may look like you
are going to hit them but manage to squeeze right through. Try to avoid as many
battles as possible. The robots you hit you need to fight. They don't give good
experience at all, so it's not a good opportunity to level. This game only has
two rounds and is over very quickly. Just for your information, there is NO
achievement to be had here.

|    5.37 Canyon-East   |
|-----------------------|
|=======================|
 
Enemies: Explod-a-Mole, Blue Grunt, Cardinal Eye, Mad Fang Mammoth, Assassin
         Ghost

================================================================================
[ Items: The Way of the Thief, Iridescent Wind, Medals x 3, Ultra Magical      ]
[        Medicine, Medals x 7, Phoenix Wing, Medals x 2, Medals x 3            ]
================================================================================

NOTE: We are going to wait a while longer to get all Red Barrier Chests. There
is no where close to here to teleport back to yet. We will just do the Green
and Red Barrier chests together after!

Canyon - East is the actual area on the world map that you find yourself in
now. This place is very wide open and has no set direction in which to travel.
This will make it somewhat annoying, but not bad. Enemy encounters are numerous
here so level up while you can.

First off you should head north and on top of the cliff to your side for a chest
containing THE WAY OF THE THIEF. From here head north again to find another
chest on a cliff holding IRIDESCENT WIND. Once again head directly north and
you will see a town. This is our next destination, but do not enter it yet. See
that cliff to the east of it, yep, climb up there and continue north. Eventually
you will see a bridge. Cross the bridge and continue south until you get a chest
for MEDALS x 3. Now go back across the bridge. Once back across head east up the
other cliff to your left. Another chest for an ULTRA MAGICAL MEDICINE. Head all
the way back down these cliffs like you are heading back to that town. At the
bottom, head east and a little north to get that chest you could see on the way
down near the bottom for MEDALS x 7. You will see a chest on a higher cliff that
you can not access at this point.

From this chest you want to head south sticking close to the mountain to locate
a chests with a PHOENIX WING. Now head off this little cliff and head south/
southwest. You will notice you are almost exactly back where you started at.
From the exact position you started at head directly east to run into a chest
with MEDALS x 2. From here head south following the mountains on the east side
of you. You will go past the entrance to the prison. Keep following this wall
until you see 2 chests on a cliff. You can not get these chests at this point,
but keep following the border here and you will head up a cliff to find a chest
with MEDALS x 3. Now head off this cliff and go directly north. Keep going north
and following the north path all the way back to the town and enter it!

This would be an excellent opportunity to level Jiro as a black mage too. Only
do this if your ranks for whm, generalist, and either support or barrier mage is
high enough. If you can get blm rank high enough, it would be nice to set blm
as another skill when you go to whm again. It will give Jiro I little something
more to do than sit around waiting to heal allies. Enter the town when you are
finally ready to.

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

You can not exit this town once you enter it. Once you enter you will talk to
Daveela. We are going to do things backwards for once. We will get some of the
story out of the way, then examine the town. Talk to Daveela again for a scene.
Coniving witch...After the scene the villagers are not very friendly towards
you. Head up to the blue house which belongs to the village elder and speak with
him. After the scene, head upstairs and search the dresser and cabinet for a
GRAND SHADOW CRYSTAL and FLAWLESS AMETHYST. Make sure you read the stories on
the bookselves in this house and the other houses as you go along.

Now run around the city and examine everything that you can. Go back towards
town now. On your way down enter the first house on your right. Open the cabinet
in here for a GRAND LIGHT CRYSTAL. Outside, you have houses on both your left
and right. I went down the houses on my right first, one after the other. In the
first house you can open another cabinet for an ULTRA MAGICAL MEDICINE. In the
next house you can open the dresser for a POWER-SWAP DART and then cabinet for a
GORGO ELIXER. Now head into the one house across the street. There are no items
here, but more Robot stories to read and if you're like me, more items to
examine.

Next head down into the inn. Head up the left stairs and into the rooms to open
the cabinets for 100 GOLD and IRIDESCENT WIND. Now head up the stairs to the
other side of the inn. In these rooms the cabinets contain a IRIDESCENT CYCLONE
and THORN BRANCH. Exit the inn and head over to the item and accessory shops.
Buy whatever you need from the shops and exit.

On the side of the item shop you find a chest with MEDALS x 1 inside. Keep
heading around the item shop to find 2 more chests out back, holding MEDALS x 7
and a FLAWLESS AMETHYST. On the side of the inn you can find a Warp Device you
should activate.

When you are done scoping out the city, head back to the entrance and talk to
Daveela. Some scenes will play and it will be dark out.

You notice a blue light behind the elders house. Head back to the house and go
up to the elders room which is now unlocked. Examine the vase in the room to
find a control panel. Hit the switch on it and head back downstairs to find
another door unlocked, go though it and head outside. Enter the capel to hear
another story. Next head down the ladder to the Underground Patchless Town.

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

You will see a c/s when you enter. After the scene head down the nearby ladder.
Follow the path until you enter a larger room. In this room head left to grab a
chest with a SkElEtOn inside! You will get MEDALS x 5 afterwards. Go up the
steps located by here and down the other side to grab another chest holding 
ANCIENT FEATHER. Now head over to the right(east) side of the room. Go up
another set of stairs to the north to grab another chest with LV5 - Flarus.
Next head on the conveyor belt in this room and ride it.

In the next area ride the belt again. Hit the switch here and ride another belt
back to the beginning. Now head through the door on the eastern wall in this
room. Run to the end for a chest to get a GRAND SHADOW CRYSTAL and hop on the
conveyor belt. When you get off there is a switch you can hit if you want to go
back again. Head through the door into the next area. Follow the path around
to another door guarded by 2 SkElEtOnS(trying to make it sound creepier. This
is the only RPG I have ever played where the main character did not talk about
their fears of ghosts and they're all children! What the hell is wrong with
them!) and be ready for another boss battle.

WARNING: This boss will summon skeletons to help it. You need to let him   |
do this if you're going for the Monster Book Completion. You will not run  |
into these enemies anywhere else in the game!                              |

There are two ways to fight this boss. You can either hit the helmet until |
it dissappears and then hit the monsters head for some good damage.        |
Otherwise, you can do what I did and just attack the body and forget about |
the helmet. On a second playthrough, I did attack the helmet and vanquished|
it. I noticed about a 60 point difference a single hit with Zola between   |
the head and the body. If you are having trouble one way, just try the     |
other. You will still do good damage to the body and the boss will still   |
fall fast. He doesn't have very high HP, but on a tougher difficulty then  |
normal it might be smart to go the helmet way.                             |
                                                                           |
He has an attack that will kill a party member four turns after he casts it|
called, Image of defeat. I had the spell cast on me and the boss was dead  |
before it took effect. In the middle of the battle the boss will use a move|
that summons four skeletons sometimes. Just use watera or some other wide  |
area attack to kill them and bring the focus back to the boss. This is not |
too hard, good luck!                                                       |
===========================================================================|


Congratulations, you got the GREEN DEVICE! After the battle choose not to leave.
Head through the next door on the east wall and down the hall. You will find a
very nice MIRROR RING  in a chest that you can equip. You will also notice a
white barrier door here.

Now head all the way back to the beginning and out. Remember you need to hit
the switch by the conveyor belt to switch the direction.

Back in town you need to put the green device in the machine and watch the c/s.
The Town is now free, but you lost the green device! Stay at the inn and run
around checking out areas that were blocked before. You can now get some new
chests. There are two up by the pond, side by side, with an HP UP ELIXER and
MEDALS x 3 inside. If you head down towards the cows in this same area you will
find another chest with MEDALS x 1. (By the white barrier chest if you can't
find it.) There is another behind the item shop holding a FORTIFICATION ELIXER.
You can now exit the town, so do so!

                       GHOST! This item is obtained from a Red Barrier chest.
                       Check above. You trade this item to this chest to obtain
                       CROWN OF THE GHOST KING!

Ok, time for another barrier chest hunt! First teleport to the Wilderness Camp.
If you talk to Donpa here, he will give you a MEGA MEDICINE. Next, go and head
out the back way. Just follow the little path and you will see it dead ahead
when the area opens up. Then warp to Mural Town. The chest is in the same room
you warp in. Open the chest. Now warp to Alumaru village(if you followed the
guide and did that side quest) and look for the chest up by the house next door
to the item shop. Grab this chest. Exit the town and enter Exile Forest. Head
into the cave in here. Follow the path all the way to where you fought the boss
battle here. You need to defeat Poison Hydtrattler to get to it. Use grounda
to defeat all mist enemies. Then hit hydrattler with flarus sword and he should
go down. Open the chest. Now teleport to Gul Mountains. Remember where you saw
the crack in the wall that you had a c/s and looked out the first time you where
here? The chest is over by this area. Check the Gul Mountain section if you are
having a hard time finding it.

Go ahead and Warp to Jibral now. Enter the castle. Travel like you are going
to the lab to find one of the chests right outside the entrance to the lab. One
of the doors here leads to the soldiers lounge, where another chest is located.
Open this one and head back to the great hall of the castle. Go up the stairs.
From here enter the Inner Courtyard. Open the chest here. There is also another
regular chest in this area I missed earlier containing MEDALS x 25 you should
get if you missed.

Now if you already have the EPISTOLE OF THE KING GHOST Key item teleport to
Forest of the Dead. From where you start head north and then west as soon as you
can. Cross over the brdige here and keep going. You should see the wall by now.
Enter it. The pods here fall and you can collect a THORN VINE, MEDALS x 6, MEGA
MAGICAL MEDICINE, ULTRA MAGICAL MEDICINE, and MEDICINE from them. Open the chest
in here and place the Epistle of the King Ghost in. You will recieve CROWN OF
THE KING GHOST!(Doulbes the amount of Gold Recieved!)

Now teleport to the Ancient Factory. Exit to the Underground River here. Head
back like you are on your way to the beginning of this place. You will see the
chest in plain site on the way. Open it up and Warp to Ancient Factory again.
From where you enter head south and west to hop on a conveyor belt. Ride the
belt and you will see the chest. Open this chest. Now you need to conintue all
the way through the Ancient Factory all the way to the top and exit. This is
the Wire Highlands and holds both a Red and Green Barrier Chest.

You will be in the Wire Highlands. Open the nearby REGULAR chest for a KERCHIEF.
Head up the ramp of the north side here for MEDALS x 1. The red barrier chest
is right above you here, do run up and get it. Go back down and up the cliff on
the south side. Grab the green barrier chest up this way. There is another chest
on the lower area here holding a BOW TIE. Now exit this place.

On the world map here there is a chest with MEDALS x 1. Travel up the North west
path for another chest with GORGO ELIXER. Head back south and go around the
crack in the ground. Go to the entrance of the Ancient Prison, but continue
north on the world map for a CURE-ALL chest. This is the last of the green
barrier chests for now. We'll get Devour Village once we get there. Now warp
back to Pachless Town and exit to the world map!

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

Warning: You may need to open the world map to understand just how big this area
is and how you should explore. I try to give the best direction I can, but this
area is EXTREMELY difficult to do that for. Good Luck!

Go across the stone pillar that was blown up and head left(south) to grab a
chest for a MAGIC ELIXER. This area is very big and can be confusing. Back at
the pillar head straight(northwest) for another chest with THE WAY OF THE THIEF
inside. Keep heading straight(northwest) along the cliffside for a chest holding
MEDALS x 8. A little further northwest you find a REPEATER WEED chest.

Now head north, then east up the cliff and go up the other cliff on the left in
front of you for a PRISMATIC CRYSTAL chest. Now head off this little cliff and
a little south, then southeast to find a chest at the end of this cliff for a
SLEEP POWDER. Head north west off of this cliff and stick to the border of the
ocean and go up the other nearby cliff. At the top there is a chest sticking
out over the ocean with MEDALS x 2. If you look west from here you see a chest
close by down below. Head there to get another chest for a FLAWLESS RUBY. Again
head a little south and then west as soon as you get the chance. Back up north
there is another chest overlooking the ocean with MEDALS x 5.

Now you want to keep heading west, but follow the border of the land against
the ocean. You will notice a large amount of enemies guarding something in this
area. Ignore this for now and keep going. It's quite a distance, but eventually
you will run into a chest with IRIDESCENT WIND inside. From here head a little
north and down the ramp here for a chest with an ANCIENT FOSSIL. Head back
north and go up the cliff to the east. Continue traveling east following the
nearby ice wall. You will come across a couple of giants blocking the path.
Kill these guys and right after them, there are 2 chests containing CURE-ALL
and MEDALS x 7. From here if you head directly west you go up a cliff and find
a PART OF THE ETERNAL ENGINE. Travel north from this chest to find another with
a FLAWLESS SAPPHIRE. Now go east and get this chest for MEDALS x 3.

Tip: On a snow path over this way, you will see a bunch of robots. There is this
giant blue thing circling the area here. If you run into it you will enter a
new area, the Mecha Base. We don't need to go here yet, so wait.You might
just be able to get your 10 fight encounter achievement here. I managed to link
8 of them, but then gave up. I will come back later and try. Also, if you have
Field Barrier 2 this is an extremely good place to use it! If everyone has Black
Belts, just run around killing mobs with field barrier here and you will rack
up some MAJOR SP! This is explained more in the Side quest section. Unlucky me,
Kluke was my BRM. I will have to come back later to do this.

We will explore the rest of this area later. For now, Travel south off the cliff
and then head all the way north. You should be going by the 3 Ice Giants again.
The destination is where you saw all the enemies guarding something on a snow
free patch of land. It's like a giant crater surrounding by robots and horse
things with very big guns.

|ACHIEVEMENT WARNING!|
**********************
======================

There are quite a few achievements coming up, so I will let you know as we go.
The first achievement is "Rescue Kluke from Falling" This can be a bit tricky,
but it isn't too hard. You need to hit the A button exactly on time and you need
to be very quick about it. You will hear a beeping noise right before you need
to hit the A button. You will have to hit A 2 sperate times in order to be
successful. Keep trying and eventually you will get it!

Now there are four more that deal with this area and they are: "Reach Nene
before the bomb goes off", get a "perfect on moon laser mini-game, and "Remove
the collar from choking Kluke." The last is "Escaped the Squashtrich". You need
to press X fast enough that you don't get stomped on and the battle menu comes
up and you can flee. You need to do this on the first try. If you try again,
even if you don't get stomped you, will not get an achievement. So get it right
the first time or restart the game and try again. The achievements will be
discussed in more detail as they come up!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE NEXT PART IS AN ACHIEVEMENT! Catch Kluke by hitting A at the right time
here. You will need to hit A two sperate times in order to be successful. You
will hear a beeping noise right before you need to hit A. This is not a hard
achievement to get at all. Then you will get a c/s.

Warning: This is going to be a one time only area again. So, grab everything
you need on the first time through!! You will run into certain enemies that
ONLY appear in this dungeon! Make sure you kill everything here! I recommend
checking out loc182's Monster Guide on Gamefaqs to make sure you kill all
monsters. Search [Warning] in the guide to quickly find all 1 time monsters!

Ok, now I said the moon lasers look like a certain something from "Star Wars",
but calling this that would be much more accurate. 

Now for the strategy. An hour is still plenty of time. The timer will stop if: 

1. You enter a battle
2. When you are saving at a save point
3. If you heal at the healing machine
4. I assume c/s.
5. If you open your menu up

If you need to walk away from your xbox, just hit the controller button to bring
up your gamertag and status info. This place consists on many floors, 5 to be
exact.

***********
|1st floor|
***********

Heal at the machine here and MAKE SURE YOU SAVE ON A DIFFERENT FILE IN HERE!
At the first intersection you come to head left(north) to fight a tiger. To the
west is a chest with PHOENIX TALON. Now travel back to the other side and
continue north for a chest containing PHOENIX WING. Now cross over to the other
side from the nearest path across and head to the end for a chest holding a MEGA
MAGICAL MEDICINE. Again cross to the other side and head north. Fight the stone
giant and go through the door to the Sand Chamber. Ride the platform across.
The timer does NOT stop just because you can't see it! Be ready for a boss
battle!

The land shark seems to take a lot of damage from watera and watera sword. |
He has an attack called Heat Laser, which can cause 100-250 points of      |
damage to the entire party. However, if you use watera you will get a      |
message saying it is cooling down when you hit it with water, so keep doing|
it. This will cause him to be unable to use Heat Laser and will make this  |
fight much easier. His Machine Gun Nose attack can do 150-200 damage to a  |
single target, so watch out. In less than 2 turns he should transform into |
Land Shark B.                                                              |
                                                                           |
Use the same attacks and it won't last long. People always say they        |
struggle with these battles, but if you are properly leveled this battle   |
should be a walk in the park. Even if you are a few levels shy, just       |
stick to the strategy above to minimize damage. I am aware you might be    |
able to inflict more damage with other spells then watera, but the point   |
is it nullifies his most deadly attack!                                    |

A teleporter will appear after you kill it. Take it up to the second floor. The
timer will start again immediately. I have about 45 minutes at this time, but I
have been typing this while playing. So I think I am going to hold off an typing
for a while.

Again there is a save point and a healing machine, so use them. Head through the
door and it is set up the same way, so do the same thing as last time. To the
left you get the spell LV5 - REGENERA from a chest.  Stay on this side and
continue forward. You will get the spell LV6 - RESISTUS all the way down at this
end. Head back and croos the first bridge you come to, to get to the other side.
There is a chest right here for a PHOENIX TALON. Head for the exit now. You will
fight a few monsters on the way there. When you head through the door you enter
the 2nd floor Storm chamber and time for another fight!

Guess who it is?? Never thought we would see this guy again.

Well here we go, a little bit of a challenge for a fight this time around. |
First you have to fight Sai, Ku, Mai, and Kesu. I took out Sai first, the  |
guy with the bombs. He has a lot of health, but he also has an attack that |
can hit everyone for 150 damage alone. I prefer to use watera sword and    |
especially watera to hit all targets. I like to damage all mobs at once,   |
but if you are struggling with this battle spells like flarus will dish out|
a lot of damage, but only single target. The choice is up to you.  After   |
that you can really focus on any order you want. The guy with the knives   |
can turn you into a kelolon. When this happes Turbulent Mai will say he    |
hates kelolons. On his next turn he will use a move that will instantly    |
kill any kelolons in the party.                                            |
                                                                           |
The rest fall easy and should not be a problem as long as you keep your    |
white mage healing constantly. Zola as an assassin with her double attack  |
hits for 500-600 damage alone. Watera will do about 500 to the front and   |
watera sword the same to one target. Where as Flarus sword and spell will  |
do about 1000 damage to a single party member. Ku will obviously be your   |
last target. Kill him and be ready for Szabo.                              |
                                                                           |
First take out Szabo's cannons. They only have about 500-550 HP. It        |
shouldn't take much to destroy all of them. Only 1-2 rounds should be      |
dedicated to that. Make sure you cast regenera, Szabo can put out some     |
major damage to all targets. Again use watera for the cannons, it should   |
take out 1-2 in a single hit. Magic doesn't seem to do major damage to     |
Szabo. Flarus sword will only hit for about 350, almost the same as watera.|
He is strong, but I have faith that you can take him down. he doesn't have |
extremely high HP. Zola was the main damage dealer here hitting for 600+   |
HP a turn. With Szabo dead I think we can be sure that he won't be back    |
this time! I kinda feel bad for him.                                       |
                                                                           |

Another save point and heal machine. SAVE YOUR GAME ON A DIFFERNT FILE!! Damn,
I only had 26 minutes at this point! You have another achievement coming up
and it is going to be a pain to get a perfect on. Damn moon!

Just follow the path around. You will be made to fight some robots which guard
the way. Run forward ignoring the first path to the right an take the second
path to the right to grab the spell LV6 - CURE-ALL! Now go back to the other
side . Head all the way down on the left to grab another chest for a PHOENIX
WING. Now head across and contine to exit the room into the 3rd Floor Moon
Chamber. 

======================
**********************
|Mini-Game Moon Laser|
**********************
======================
======================
**********************
|ACHIEVEMENT WARNING!|
**********************
======================

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

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

Ok, now for the game iteself. You start out nice and simple. Only the right
most moon attacks at first. So keep your target on it at all times. Charge your
attack by holding down the button and when it starts charging fire at it.
These moons like to do quick flips where they don't fire sometimes. This is why
you should always wait till you see the yellow charging. After the first one is
destroyed you must take out the other two.

This part is easy so I leave it up to you. Sometimes the moons will power up
and start flipping and firing faster. At this time do not charge your attacks
at all unless you are confident enough to make it. When this ends you go to
the other side and more and harder moons!

This is the hard side that will annoy you and you will be doing this over and
over because of it. At first keep firing at the moons as they charge. The hard
part comes when the first moon goes down. All three moons power up and fire
rapidly and faster. The only thing that should give you a real problem is when
all three moons charge at once. You need to tap fire, hit over tap fire, hit
over and tap fire as fast as possible. Now even this part with enough practice
is not too bad. It might take a couple tries but thats it.

Now the extremely hard part that will have you cursing and throwing shit around.
Two moons left, you think this would be easier, but you are very, very wrong.
With two moons left you can keep control fairly easy when only one of them is
firing, but the trouble is when both go to fire at the same time. They both flip
and right after you hit the first, and by the time you hit the second it's
already fired at you. It would be simple if you could keep firing, but remember
you can't score a 0 damage hit to get a perfect. There is no real way around
this, but to pray you are fast enough.

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

***********
|4th Floor|
***********

Ok, With all that said and done I have abour 21 minutes left on the timer for
the last two floors. OK, follow the path to the left and grab LV5 - ERASE.
Continue forward and follow the path to the right. Go straight again fighting
some more robots. After a few more corners you find another chest with the
LV6 - EXTRACTUS spell inside. Continue on and outside for another boss battle.

Yes, another robot battle. This battle can be extremely easy or extremely  |
hard for people based on your luck. For the big robot, hit him with Flarus |
and flarus sword to inflict some major damage. I also attack with Zola and |
double strike for about 600 points of damage. Have your whm cast regenera  |
on the first round and then keep your white mage healing at all times.     |
This guy can cause some major damage. He can use a Mow Down attack that    |
hits all characters for 100 damage. He can also single target attack for   |
100-200 damage. His last move is a laser that will hit one target for 200+ |
damage.                                                                    |
                                                                           |
After a couple of hits, the robot loses it head and about 8 little robots  |
come out. These guys can be a pain. Everytime you attack one it counters.  |
If you use magic that hits 4 of them, then the four will counter attack    |
that one person. So plan carefully. Even considering this, I usually all   |
out attack at this point. One of these robots is the leader and the        |
minute he goes down the battle is over. The more robots you kill and the   |
faster you do it, the faster this battle ends. I used watera on the front  |
row, but you could also use grounda. You are almost guarenteed to lose     |
your mages this way, but hell with it. I have Shu use Mow Down and Maro    |
charge attack. In one round you should take down 4-6 robots and hopefully  |
the leader. If you don't take out the leader I believe the robot puts      |
itself back together and you have to do it all again. The first time the   |
head popped off, I killed three of the eight robots and the thing died.    |
Making this the easiest battle yet for me. Even on a second playthrough I  |
still killed him at this point. Hopefully you get this lucky, otherwise it |
may take a while.                                                          |

Wow, entered this floor with 11 minutes left. I am slacking off, so you should
definetely have plenty of time left as long as you're not being a moron. Take
the first left to grab a treasure chest. You will get the spell LV5 - HEALUS,
thank you! Go back and move forward, to the left again for another chest. You
get another spell, LV5 - REFLECTA. Go back, continue forward and go left for
another chest containing LV5 - PARALYZE. Finally head back, go forward, to the
left again. Grab the chest containing LV5 - HP MAX UP! Head out of this room.
Get ready for another boss fight. Damn, made it just in time with 3 minutes
left!

WARNING: ACHIEVEMENTS immediately afterwards. There are some spoilers ahead,
but if you want to be prepared read the paragraph under this boss battle first!

WARNING: You should unequip ALL accessories in the extra slots at this point.
Your rings, necklace, bracelet, and earrings are all fine to leave on.
Something will happen ahead, if you don't unequip them they will disappear for
a little while. They are not gone, but you will have to level Generalist until
you get Accessories + 3 skill in order to get them back!

This battle is not tough at all. Just defend and listen to what you need to|
do. I recommend hitting all the robots with shina. It won't do any damage  |
and it will stun them all, so you don't have to wait while they attack.    |
When Yasato is trying to take control of his body attack the weapon he is  |
holding. It seems the sweeper??? is controling him. After 2-3 hits to the  |
sweeper the battle will end. If you don't kill it the first time, he goes  |
back to his normal position. You will see more talking after a while. I am |
not sure if you have to do this, but after this dialog switch one of your  |
characters to the back row by selecting Formation. He should use that move |
again and then you can attack again.                                       |

Ok so the timer has stopped already and you made it! Congratulations if you made
it to this point you just unlocked another achievement too. You "made it to Nene
before the timer ran out". Now it is time to get yet another achievement. For

displays about what to do. To make it simple though, press down on the left
analog stick and rapidly tap the button that shows on the screen. You will
switch back and forth between the characters, and when the characters switch
so do the buttons to press. So make sure before you start that you know where
each button is on the controller. This is not hard at all. Y

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

See told you it was simple, congratualtions on another achievement. Now this
part is tricky, you can get another achievement by not getting stomped by this
machine that is coming up. This is a little easier than the door at the
beginning of the game, but is still a pain in the @$$. As soon as you get the
chance you need to press X as fast as you can to fill the bar up. The minute
the bar is up and the battle menu appears you need to FLEE! Any other option
and you will be stomped on. This is also timed so click Flee fast. If you get
stomped on just once, give up and reset your game.  You can NOT click TRY AGAIN
if you die. You must load a save file and do it all over again.

Another congratualtions for finishing the second disc!!!!

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

Something just doesn't look right about this place. Search the old ladys house
for items. You can find a GORGO ELIXER in the dresser and a POWER-SWAP DART
in the cabinet. Downstairs there are two more dressers containing GRAND LIGHT
CRYSTAL and ULTRA MAGICAL MEDICINE. Exit the house, then run behind it to
activate the warp device. Keep circling this house to get a chest with MEDALS
x 7.

This town reminds me of Halloween Town from that Tim Burtin movie. Make your
way around the village. Examine everything for items and gold. In the house
behind the one you started in you can open cabinet and dresser for IRIDESCENT
WIND and GRAND SHADOW CRYSTAL. There is a Valon story to read in here. Head into
the house next to the item/accessory shop. There is a chest in here with MAGICAL
FORTIFICATION ELIXER. Open the two cabinets and a dresser for PHOENIX WING,
ANCIENT FOSSIL, and ULTRA MEDICINE. You can go to the spell, item, and accessory
shop. You should already have all of the spells you can buy here. There are a
ton of stories in here to read as well. I would hold off on buying accessories
until you get your party back, so you can see what you need.

Head behind the accessory and item shop to find the rest of the party. After the
scene head over into the inn. Open the dresser and cabinet here for THORN BRANCH
and IRIDESCENT CYCLONE. Exit and head into the next house over. Open the cabinet
and dresser here for FLAWLESS SAPPHIRE and FLAWLESS AMETHYST.

Next run over to the save point for a c/s. After, go like you are heading to
exit this town for a c/s. Run up to the tree now and press A to enter a fight.
You can not win this fight. So let Shu die and wake up in the old lady's house
again.

|ACHIEVEMENT WARNING!|
**********************
======================

Story based achievement coming up! You can't miss it.

Head back outside, Head to the save point to learn to visit the inn. Kluke has
collapsed! After the scene talk to the inn keeper and head up the hill. Now this
part is awesome. Mash the buttons and get ready for a fight. Tension takes a
new part in this battle. After you attack too much it will say tension is full.
Right above attack, choose corporeal and watch what happens!! After the scene
at the inn, head up to the tree and fight again.

Not really much you can do in this fight with only Shu having a shadow.    |
Defend with all the other characters unless using a healing item, curing a |
status ailment, or hitting the hands so they move and Shu can attack. If   |
Yeet puts his hands in front of his face you can't attack him. You must hit|
the hands so they move, any attack at all will work. Shu should just keep  |
using Flarus sword to cause some major damage. The boss likes to use       |
paralyze and poison so make sure you heal them right away, especially on   |
Shu. Without him you aren't going to get anywhere. It took me about 2      |
Flarus Sword(2200 HP) damage to take this guy down. His attacks are very   |
weak for the most part. His only damaging one is the attack that hits the  |
whole party 2-3 times for 60-80 damage.                                    |
===========================================================================|

After you beat him head to the exit of the town for another scene. You will
recieve SAHLIA'S COOKIE. ;) Save your game and exit the town.

[        Necklace, Part of Eternal Engine, Crystal Ring                        ]
================================================================================

On the world map grab the nearby chest for a SHADOW CRYSTAL. Just follow the
path the only way you can go. You will zone into Devour Forest.

NOTE: This is another area where the compass is upside down. North is at the
bottom, south at the top, west to the right, and east to the left. For the sake
of this area, pretend the compass is not this way. I am going to dictate
directions as if north is top, south is bottom, west is left, and east is right.
I think this cuts down on major confusion when you look at it this way. At least
it does for me and it doesn't cause me to overthink.

Start by heading forward and opening the chest thats there for a GRAND EMERALD.
Examine the black pedastal nearby, which you will need a part to activate.
Continue further down the path to the east. It kinda sucks that only Shu has the
shadow ability, but enemies are not very tough here. This crazy thing pops out
ofthe ground ahead and screams attracting four groups of Skimmers. Shu's move
mow down will usually take out a whole line of enemies in one blow. Ok, so the
thing mimics grass, be on the look out for grass/brush coming out of the ground.

Walk forward a little and grab the chest for THE WAY OF THE THIEF. Walk forward
a little more and you will see you a few treasure chests. As you near them a
ghost will appear. Kill the ghosts(Shina Sword works great) and grab the three
chests. One has a key item FLOWER SHARD. The second and third chests contain
a CRYSTAL BRACELET and ANCIENT FEATHER. Now run back to the black pedastal you
saw at the entrance to this forest. Go up and examine it. After you do the tree
roots on the side will disappear and you can continue forward.

Open the two chest to get a REPEATER WEED and a POWER-SWAP DART. You will find
Toripo right around the corner. After you buy what you want, head down the left
path to open some more chests. One has the spell LV6 - CURSE! The other contains
a CRYSTAL EARRING. You will see another black pedastal. You can see some new
roots blocking the way so head down the only other path you haven't yet. The
path continues east.(If you took the right at the Toripo intersection it leads
to this same exact place.)

You will get a c/s. At the end of this path take a right(south) and travel down
the south path. You will run into a chest with SLEEP POWDER straight ahead. DO
NOT GO OFF THIS CLIFF BY THE CHEST! You will have to run all the way around
again. Head down the nearby path to the east. At the end is a green barrier
chest with STONE SHOES!

Then head back to the intersection where I told you to take the south path. It's
not far from here. This time you want to go around the circle to get a chest
with a FLAWLESS EMERALD inside. Keep circling the path untill you get another
chest with IRIDESCENT WIND. DON'T GO OFF THIS CLIFF EITHER. You will notice
there are 2 paths here. Take the southern most eastern path first. A ghost will
appear in front of you again at the end of this path. Kill it and grab the
SACRED TREE SHARD item for the pedastal. You will see another chest near here.
If you go near it another screaming thing will pop and call monsters. Kill it
and grab the chest for a GRAND AMETHYST(???).

Head back to the fork. Take the northern most east path this time to head back
up and grab a MIRROR NECKLACE. Finally, go back to the black pedastal to
activate it!(Head right at every fork to find it again.) Once the roots are
gone, grab the two chests for a PART OF ETERNAL ENGINE and CRYSTAL RING.
Keep walking north and you will exit to the world map!

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

I never thought I would be so happy to see these damn Snow Fields again.lol;;
Head straight(north west) to grab a chest up on a cliff for a GRAND RUBY.
You will spot another chest under you. Go around and grab it for MEDALS x 13,
then follow the path in the snow forward. You will see another chest on your
right with a BROKEN ETERNAL ENGINE inside. Move forward some more and you will
spot another chest a little off the path to the north west, grab it for MEDALS
x 1. You should see a second one close to here, which contains a PRISMATIC
CRYSTAL. Go back to the snow path now and keep following the path until it
splits. Head to the left and back first to go on a cliff and collect two chests
containing MEDALS x 7 and MEDALS x 9 here. (The second is up on the second cliff
on top of this cliff.

Go back down to where you took the left at the intersection and continue the
other way this time. It's really just a big circle, but there is a chest on this
side holding a DEVEE ELIXER. Now, continue on the path here, you should be
traveling west.

Continue to follow the path and you will come around a gate you can enter on the
south mountain range, but wait to do so. Keep following the path until it splits
left and right. The left path dissappears here, but follow it's direction to
another chest in the southeast corner with MEDALS x 3. Then go back and head
down the right path staying close to the mountains. When you see an area you can
enter, do so to grab another chest.(FLAWLESS AMETHYST) Exit here and continue
following the path down a hill. There are three chests in this area so grab
them. You will recieve an ANCIENT FOSSIL, FLAWLESS EMERALD, and a MEGA MAGICAL
MEDICINE. Head all the way up to the gateway you can enter again.

[        Medals x 8, Medals x 7, Medals x 3, Medals x 5                        ]
================================================================================

Everyone in this village is frozen. Make your way around talking to all the
frozen people and the people in the houses. In the first house on the right(the
old man's house) you can open four cabinets for SHADOW CRYSTAL, FLAWLESS
SAPPHIRE, GRAND LIGHT CRYSTAL, and CURE-ALL. Talk to the old man to get "the
light to shine in Kluke's heart." Maro, Jiro, and Kluke will each get scenes in
which there inner light begins to shine. Once you activate all three of them
you will have to battle your shadows like Shu did in order to get them back.

Enter the next house you can on this side. This is Frado's house. Open the
cabinet here for MEDALS x 8. Then talk to the lady in here for another scene.
Exit this house and head farther into the village. In this big circular area
there is an ancient machine you can examine. To the far left in this area is a
chest with MEDALS x 7. Head over the nearby bridge. You will see four frozen
kids to the right. Talk to all four of them for one more scene. You will need to
fight your shadows now.

With your whm and blm just defend and keep healing until corporeal magic is full
and unleash it to win. Maro's shadow will hit for a LOT of damage. It was
hitting me for 350-450 with monk as a job. I recommend that right from the start
of his battle just keep charging Meditation. He will attack and then you will
restore 500+ HP. Keep doing this and wait for Corporeal to fill up. If you don't
have Meditation on, keep using healing items until you can release your huge
attack and finish it. All 3 shadows will hit you for major damage, but as long
as you keep healing and unleash Corporeal, there is no way you can lose!

Afterwards you can warp, but before you do talk to the soldier by the inn and
the one inside the inn to learn that you need to head to Jibral to talk to the
King. Open the cabinet inside the inn for MEDALS x 3. MAKE SURE you activate the
Warp Device outside the inn before you finally warp back to Jibral. Also there
is a chest outside the inn which holds MEDALS x 5. Warp to Jibral!

NOTE: Any accessories you may have been missing due to the collars will now be
back and in place.

When you arrive talk to the girl on the side of you. I would take the trip to
the cafe with her just to find out what is going on. You hear a bunch of new
gossip.

1. Something about the Killer bandits treasure
2. Something about Donpa and opening chests in wilderness camp....
3. Something about designer vases(which we have plenty of)....
4. A scene with people from the village....
5. Something about Guru Guru searching for the 5 people who saved him...
(I entered this forest earlier in the game, if you followed this walkthrough
you did too. If not you can head there now. Check the Exile Forest section of
the Side Quest section to learn more).
6. Something about making a fortune off the cookie recipe from Devour Village.

******************
|Mini-Side Quests|
******************

-Warp to Wilderness camp(If you didn't do this yet. If you followed this
 walkthough you did earlier in the game.) --Talk to Donpa to recieve an
 item.

-Warp to Devour Village--Talk to the girl near the save point to get the cookie
 recipe. If you bring her the ingredients she will make you more cookies as
 well.

-Warp to Jibral and talk to lady in cafe to learn where to get ingredients.
 Zephyr chocolate you should have gotten from lady after saving Jibral earlier.
 Can still get now, across from cafe. The Lal Mountain camp we haven't gone to
 yet, but you get other part for the recipe there.

-Remember the people in the bar you told earlier about the house down near the
 entrance to Jibral the could rent. Well, they are there now and will give you
 a MEGA INVISIBILITY ELIXER if you speak with them. You also learn the people
 have moved back to Talta Village. 

-Warp to Talta Vilage --You will notice glowing gold spots in the sand at the
 bottom of the village flying all over the place. Chase them and press A to get
 items like BROKEN ETERNAL ENGINE, PRISMATIC CRYSTAL, and PART OF ETERNAL
 ENGINE. I think there are 5-6 items total.

-Warp to Alumaru village = Locate Guru Guru up by the bell that Sura Sura
 rang earlier. Speak with him to recieve GEM OF JIBRAL accessory.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now before continuing on, you can enter the Gorgo house in Jibral and they will
all be gone. You can open the dresser and cabinet in here for KELOLON POWDER
and STEADINESS SALVE. You can also now open the five chests in this house for
a BROKEN ETERNAL ENGINE, GRAND TRIBES' NECKLACE, GRAND TRIBES' EARRING, GRAND
TRIBES' RING, and MEDALS x 9. Before you go to the castle you should check in
with the NOTHING guy at this point. I had 1392 NOTHINGs, 8 shy of getting
another Lei!

Head up into the castle when you are ready to continue. Go to the 3rd floor
and head to the left side of the throne room hall to enter King Jibral's
quarters. You can read the last of the Killer bandit books here if you
got all the others, as well as some Valon ones. In the room attached to
this you can open a chest for a GRAND SAPPHIRE. Talk to him and head down to
the lab. You get a password here. Now warp right back to Noluta village.

Don't bother with watera, water only does about 50 damage at most to this  |
guy. Stick with flarus and flarus sword. They will tell you that iron gets |
softer when heated, meaning that the more you hit him with fire the more   |
damage you will be able to do with the next attack. He has a counter attack|
Rocket punch which does a LOT of damage. He will use Rocket Punch everytime|
you hit him with Flarus or Flarus sword. This attack can do 300-500 damage |
to a single target. So, if you are really hurting avoid using Flarus that  |
round and use the time to heal up. His regular attacks are nothing much.   |
They usually hit for about 50 damage.He can also use a Grounda like attack,|
which will cause about 60 or so damage to the entire party. Continuious    |
Attack is another move to watch out for causing about 100-200 points of    |
damage. With Flarus Sword hitting for 1000-2000 damage you should be able  |
to take him down before he becomes too much of a problem. Remember that    |
you now have corporeal attacks in your arsenal. If tension reaches max,    |
let him have it!                                                           |
===========================================================================|

After the battle you will get the WIHTE DEVICE! Now you should have the blue,
green, red, and white devices to open chests. After wwe finish examining the
town it's time to go chest hunting again!

Check out the shops and buy items, spells, and accessories
that you need. In the item shop you can open a cabinet for a BROKEN ETERNAL
ENGINE and a chest for a MEDALS x 9. Exit and head dow and into the accessory
and spell shop. Open the two cabinets here for PART OF ETERNAL ENGINE and 300
GOLD. You should have all the spells. There are great accessories here, but I
am going to wait till I have Negotiate skill again before I buy anything!

Head for the back gate to exit. You will see something shiny on the ground to
collect and Toripo will show up. Give him the item for a CRYSTAL NECKLACE and
you can buy whatever you need with metals. Exit the town when you are ready.

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

The path on the world map is straight forward so just follow it to the next
town. You will find a chest along the way holding a ULTRA MAGICAL MEDICINE. A
little further down another chest with a FLAWLESS AMETHYST is on the path. 
Before you cross over the bridge ahead, go southwest to find another chest with
MEDALS x 7 inside. Now cross the bridge and enter the camp!

Stick to the right side wall when you enter and grab the nearby chest for a
FLAWLESS SAPPHIRE. Follow this wall around until you see a Warp Device. Stop
and activate this. Now keep going around, passing the black barrier chest and
grab the chest after it for KIMONO SASH. Travel around the outside some more
and you will see a monkey on top of a box. You should have a Banana from earlier
and it you talk to him, he will take it and give you FORBIDDEN CRYSTALS. When-
ever you have Bananas come back here. Grab the nearby chest for a CURE-ALL. 
Only a few more chest to grab. Go behind the Fortune Tellers tent to find one
with MEDALS x 1. Behind the spell shop you can find another chest with MEDALS
x 7.

Talk to all of the people here. One traveler talks about the killer pirates
treasure being somewhere near the spires. Another talks about how many barrier
treasure there are in total.(10 blue, 8 red, 5 green, 8 white, and 9 black)
At this point, you should have all Blue, Green, and Red. We going going to work
on White after explore this camp.

All of the shops here have the same items and spells as the other towns you have
visited. The guys around the fire in the middle have some information too. Talk
to the old guy who loses his memory, then talk to the kid behind him and follow
his instructions. If you talk to the guy from behind over and over he will tell
the story of all the other towns problems and finally say something about the
spires.(I couldn't get the item for the cookie recipe yet, so come back and try
later.)

Now, let's do some White barrier chests before we continue!

**********************
|White Barrier Chests|
**********************

Mural Town--> GRAVITIC RING
Jibral Castle--> LV6 - GROUNDUS 
Ancient Factory--> BALLET SHOES 
Ancient Prison--> CHAMPION'S BELT
Ancient Prison--> BELT OF HERMES 
Pachess Town--> LV6 - ZEPHYRUS 
Pachess Town--> LV6 - QUICKUS 
Devour Village--> MEDALS x 9 

*********************
|White Barrier Walls|
*********************

Pachless Town Underground---> Leads to Pachless Plateau and 2 regular chests
Ancient Hospital Ruins -3f---> LV6 - ???
Ancient Hospital Ruins-1f---> LV6 - TRAPFLOORUS and LV6 - WALLA

First, warp to Mural Town. The chest is in the same room you warp into. Next
warp to Jibral Castle. This one is right outside the entrance to the lab. So
head down there and open it. Next, warp to the Ancient Factory. You need to
be careful in here not to run into Gold Mecha Robot. He will wreck you at this
point in the game! You need to head like you are going to the top exit of this
place. It is up on the ramp in the back that goes way up. Open this and warp to
the Ancient Prison. You start in one of the 6 cells. You want to exit this area
and go down to where the other 6 cells are at the opposite end. It's in one of
the cells at the end with a rat to kill. Open it and now you want to continue
deeper in to the prison. Go through the door with the red/blue light lock on it.
Follow the path right in here and go through the door. In this little hall is
a chest with white barrier. Open it and warp to Devour Village. The chest is
located in the village, back by a broken down house. Grab it and warp to
Pachless Town. The first chest is on a path behind the inn. For the second one
head up to the village chiefs house. This is way over by where the cow creatures
graze up here.

Head in the chiefs house and exit the back door. Go in the chapel and down the
ladder. The chest is all the way back where the boss fight occured. If you
forget how to get here, check that area in my guide again. At the end of this
area a White barrier Wall is blocking the path. Get rid of it and ride the
elevator up. This is Pachless Plateau. To the northwest grab the nearby chest
for a PRISMATIC CRYSTAL. Now head up the ramp. There is a chest here to grab.
To the FAR southwest grab the chest for a FLAWLESS EMERALD.

Now warp to the Ancient Hospital to go through the last 2 walls. The first wall
to go to is on the third floor. It's over by the elevator in one of the halls
off of it. Go in to grab the chest for a spell. Now take the nearby elevator
down to the first floor. Go inside to grab two more chests with spells in them.
Now warp back to Lal Mountains.

This is the world map. You are going to keep continuing down the bridges. The
path is pretty linear, you can't really get lost. Collect the chest on the
way for MEDALS x 9. Further along is another chest with MEDALS x 3. Traveling
right along another chest with a GORGO ELIXER is in fron of you. There is one
last chest on this path with a ANCIENT FEATHER inside. Finally, you will come
upon a RockWind wolf ghost blocking the path, you will hit a checkpoint. This
is a boss battle!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
WARNING: After a certain period of time this boss with split into a Stone  |
Wolf Ghost and Gale Wolf Ghost. If you kill him before he does this, you   |
will miss the Monster Book Completion achievement. YOU MUST LET HIM SPLIT! |
---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
                                                                           |
This battle isn't too hard. This is just like the other Wolf Ghost boss.   |
He will change his element. At the beginning he changed to Wind, so I      |
used Groundus and Groundus sword dealing 1600 and then 2200 damage         |
respectively. Unlike the other one, he didn't switch elements after he     |
was attacked. After these two attacks he split into two different wolfs.   |
                                                                           |
Use the opposite element on each part. Grounda on the wind wolf and winda  |
on the Rock Wolf. Charge attack with Maro. A full charge attack can do     |
1000+ damage to each of them! The wolf attacks consist mostly of single    |
target attacks that deal about 60 damage. You shouldn't have to worry about|
this guy. Once they split I usually have Shu focus on the Gale Wolf with   |
Groundus Sword and Kluke on Stone Wolf with Windus. We don't want to hit   |
both wolfs with groundus and restore one of them, that is why I use this   |
strategy. The battle will soon be over.                                    |
===========================================================================|

Continuing on you will come to a beach area. Roam around this area to find
chests and battle new creatures. In the first chest you come across you get a
PRISMATIC CRYSTAL. Head south from here into the middle for MEDALS x 7. If you
southwest you find another chest with a KELOLON NECKLACE! If you head east/
southeast from here you get another chest with a PHOENIX WING. From here travel
North/ Northeast. One of the chests up here contains a special item, the
AUTOGRAPHED MANUSCRIPT, so make sure that you search here throughly. There is
ont last chest in this area that contains a CURE-ALL. As you finally near one of
the glass spires near the east end you get a c/s.

Guess who is back and guess what they brought!! Zola and you now have control
of a mechat, you can fly around the world!! Now is the time to do a quick fly
over the world and look for any treasure chests you might have missed or any
areas that you can now explore. 

First head to Lal mountain camp and give the traveler there the autographed
manuscript you got from the chest to get and EYEPATCH! This is a plus SP
item!!! Now skip down to the Side Quest section and do all of them you want
before the final dungeon! You are still far from the end my friend!

Another thing I would do now is teleport to Jibral. I would go visit our good
friend the NOTHING man. If you have been as anal as me about examining every-
thing in the world you should have over 1400 NOTHINGS landing you another LEI!

In Cafe Jibral you can also hear a few new things. Go to the Vase Shop here
and you will recieve a FIRST AIDE URN for your Designer Vase. Now teleport to
Lago Village and talk to the chief by the water fountain. He will give you the
DEVEE IDOL and 10,000 GOLD!

List of to do:

Deserted Islands
Kelaso Village
Aurora Ruins
Mecha Base
Mechat Hanger
Upper Mecha Base
5 Dragon Quest
Black Barrier Chests
Ancient Ruins(King Poo)
Ancient Factory(Gold Mecha Robot)
Mystery Parts

|     Final Dungeon     |
|-----------------------|
|=======================|

======================
**********************
|ACHIEVEMENT WARNING!|
**********************
======================

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

|=======================|
|-----------------------|
|5.49 Mechat Mini Game 3|
|-----------------------|
|=======================|

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

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

The second part, while a little harder, is still easy. The Land Shark shoots
out groups of missiles now. You need to take out the missiles right away if you
are going for this achievement. Again, not too hard when he is in front or back.
Stick to the same strategy. Hit the Land Shark with missiles and shoot down his
missiles with the machine guns.

The only tricky part can be when he gets on the side of you. He fires missiles
at close range, so you need to make sure you are following him closely and that
when he is on side of you, you are targeting close to where the missiles launch
from. Follow this strategy and you should get a perfect on this after a few
tries.

Congratualtions on another achievement!!

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

|    5.50 Cube World    |
|-----------------------|
|=======================|

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

*****************
|Mecha Robo Cube|
*****************

================================================================================
[ Items: MP Boost Elixer, Bow Tie, Cure-All, Ultra Magical Medicine, HP Up     ]
[        Elixer, Radiant Flour, MP Boost Elixer, Aurora Droplet, Mega HP Up    ]
[        Elixer, Zephyr Chocolate, Mega HP Up Elixer                           ]
================================================================================

This is the first cube you should head too and also the most helpful! Yasato
and the other robots live on this cube. The cube is the yellowish colored one
very close to where you start on the left.

Once you enter check behind your Mechat for a chest containing MP BOOST ELIXER.
Run forward for a quick c/s. Talk to every single robots because they will
restore HP and MP, as well as give you items. A little forward and to the left
is a Wap Device to activate. Enter the center area. A robot running around the
circle here will give you a BOW TIE! The other robots standing around this area
will give you a CURE-ALL, ULTRA MAGICAL MEDICINE, and a HP UP ELIXER. Make sure
you check the 4 shops in this area. They sell extremely rare items. You can even
buy Banana to trade to the monkey in Lal Mountain Camp.

Run back to the Mechat path and turn around. You want to take the path of your
left. A robot here will give you RADIANT FLOUR. You can open a chest across from
here for a MP BOOST ELIXER. One of the robots in the circular area down this way
will give you an AURORA DROPLET! You can also open the black barrier chest here
for MEGA HP UP ELIXER.

Now head back to the center and keep going straight to the other end. You can
get a ZEPHYR CHOCOLATE from the robot here. In the circular area down this end
you can get some great information. They basically describe all the side quest
areas you should have already completed if your following this guide. If not
you can always complete them after you finish this cube. Open the Black Barrier
chest here for MEGA HP UP ELIXER! 

Now head to the area opposite of where your Mechat is. Down here there is a
Robot NOTHING man, lol, you can now get the items from him. I had 1765 at this
point, just shy of the 1800 prize.;; The robot that will change Medicine into
Mega Medicine is here as well. Now you will see a Black Portal down here. If
you enter this Portal you will go back in time to before the planet split. So
if you need to finish anything(ex. achievements, Side Quests, etc.) go through
here and come back through the other hole after.

Enemies: Blazing Moth, Land Temple Turtle, Bowa-Bowa, Wandering Sage, Spin-Laser
         Defender, Riot Puppet, Red Infantry, Tornado Raptor, Fanatic Eye,
         Pink Soldier, Red Spine Ghost, Flame Gunner, 

================================================================================
Warning: This is going to be a one time only area again. So, grab everything
you need on the first time through!! You will run into certain enemies that
ONLY appear in this dungeon! Make sure you kill everything here! There are also
a few enemies here that summon other enemies. If you kill the original enemies,
they will never respawn. The enemies I speak of are Wandering Sages and they
can summon 2 other monsters that will only appear by being summoned by them.
Once you kill all Wandering Sages they will NEVER respawn. I recommend
checking out loc182's Monster Guide on Gamefaqs to make sure you kill all
monsters. Search [Warning] in the guide to quickly find all 1 time monsters!
================================================================================

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

NOTE: The compass here is upside down, so pay attention to what you are doing
here. If I say head north it means you should be moving down on the compass.
East is the left of the compass and West is the right.

Ok Finally, an answer to the question that everyone wanted to know!!!      |
Where do Poo's come from?? Well, when Jiro says, "This is not going        |
to be good is it?" and the T-rex is bent over, get ready to find out!!     |
The T-rex lets a big fart rip and next thing you know a giant Poo          |
Snake Appears!!! Damn...what the hell is wrong with video games these      |
days...Don't even get me going on television shows....Spongebob...         |
                                                                           |
Two Flarus swords will take the Poo down. Now concentrate Groundus and     |
Groundus Sword on Mechosaurus. You can attack his eye to do some extra     |
damage to him and prevent his eye laser attack. Keep hitting away, this    |
guy isn't that tough. I managed to kill him in 3 attacks. I also beat      |
King Poo and Gold Mecha already, so I guess that fights from here on       |
out will be cake. If you do have problems, try using Wallus or Previve.    |
Follow this up with Corporeal and he'll go down.                           |
===========================================================================|

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

*********
|Level 1|
*********

The turtle enemies in here absorb all elements I believe. I used waterus and
flarus on them and they absorbed both, so stick with physical attacks. Take
the first right(east) turn you can and push the button on the stand to move
the platform. The platform will connect a piece of walkway with a treasure
chest. Now don't go back over, but continue up the path to the South and hit
another button. This will shift the big pile of platforms to the left. Head
to the West side to grab a chest for BLACK MAGIC HEART. Then head back over
East and cross all the platforms you moved. Get a chest over on this walkway
for a GRAND SHADOW CRYSTAL. Hit the button at the end of this path. This will
shift the platforms near the entrance to the room allowing you to run back and
grab the two chests on the other side. One contains the ANCIENT EMBLEM - MOON
Key Item. The other in the cubby hole further to the North contains a GRAND
LIGHT CRYSTAL. Now head all the way back to the upper right(Southwest) hand
corner and press the button to make the platforms move back to the exit of this
room. Use the emblem on the door to leave the room. 

Head up the hall and enter the door to the left(West), the right one you need
another emblem for. In this room grab the chest on the left for a MP BOOST
ELIXER. Follow the room around to grab another chest at the other side with a
BROKEN ETERNAL ENGINE inside. Now enter the door next to this chest. Cross the
small hall and enter the door on the opposite side.

You are in a room with very small walkways. Enter the door on your left(South
wall) for a chest holding PART OF ETERNAL ENGINE and come back into this room.
Do NOT push the button on the center platform yet, instead head straight through
the door to grab another chest with a GENERALIST HEART inside. You will see
that you can continue through another door in this room, but wait. Go into the
room with the platform and hit the button now. The whole room will rotate
around. Take the exit in front of you on your left(South door) to grab an HP UP
ELIXER from a chest, then come back to this room. Now head out the only other
door in here. In this room there is a chest on the right to grab for an ULTRA
MAGICAL MEDICINE. You want to keep going straight(North Door) into the next
room now, do NOT enter the left(East) door yet. Do NOT hit the button in this
new room yet either, we are already lost enough as it is!! J/k, it is confusing
but bear with it, almost there.

Head straight from the room with the rotating platform to grab a chest holding
MP BOOST ELIXER. Then head back and hit the button here. Don't worry, just grab
the chests from the left and right room(MONK HEART and BARRIER MAGIC HEART) and
come back to press the button again. Head out the South door now, because we are
going to go in that left I told you not to take before, which is
on your right now, still with me???(It's the West door in this hall)

This is another puzzle room. If you label the switches from South to North going
1 2 3 4(Or closest to furthest), these are how you should hit them. 2, 1, 3, 1,
and 4. It is fairly simple when you hit a switch it shows you the way. Head to
the end and grab the two chest to the North while there for MEGA HP UP ELIXER
and HIMIKO'S NECKLACE. Now, to the South and then west West there is a chest
guarded by a robot containing a PHOENIX WING. There is also another chest in
this room guarded by a robot which holds the ANCIENT EMBLEM - SUN Key Item! Now
head in the teleport device nearby. Back in this room, across from the oblivion
door, head up to the East path and through the door. Right across the hall from
you should be the Sun door. Unlock it and go through.   

Head through the two other doors in this room for chests containing HP UP ELIXER
and SUPPORT MAGIC HEART. Then come back and rotate the room. Head through the
North door. Fight the ghosts here and grab the chest for an ASSASSIN HEART.

Continue through the door here to enter a puzzle room again...Head out the door
on your left and grab the chest in here for a PHOENIX WING. Head out the other
door here and into a rotating room. Hit the switch here to rotate the area. Open
the chest here for a CURE-ALL and go back and rotate the previous room again.
If you head through the north door here you get another chest for a PRISMATIC
WIND BRACELET. If you exit the door in this room, it doesn't lead anywhere yet
so head back to the puzzle room.

First grab the chest on the left if you didn't already for a GRAND LIGHT
CRYSTAL. Go to the right and press the button. Go down the center platform and
hit another button and grab the chest for a CURE-ALL. Now follow the new pathway
to two more chests to grab for a BARRIER MAGIC HEART and a ANCIENT EMBLEM -
VOID! There is a nearby switch to hit and a telepoter. Do NOT take the
teleporter yet, instead head around to the room you got the bracelet from to
get 2 more chests blocked by a Black Barrier containing a ??? HEART and HIMIKO'S
EARRING. Head back and take the teleporter. Head through the door, but be ready
for a Boss Battle!!!

Just hit this guy with Waterus and Waterus sword to inflict some nice      |
damage. It's heads will start dieing one by one. He has an attack that     |
can instantly kill one member, but nothing we haven't dealt with before.   |
The battle ends extremely quick with waterus doing 1800 damage to each     |
head!! It should only take 1, maybe 2 attacks to each head to kill.        |
===========================================================================|

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

|Level 2|

NOTE: The compass has flipped back around to the right direction on this floor.
Now north is at the top again!

In this area you can go either all the way left or right first to come to one
of two encounters. I headed to the left(West) first for this walkthrough. Over
this end there is a little room where you can get 2 chests for a SWORDMASTER
HEART and HP UP ELIXER. Then continue through the door at the end of the hall
for a battle!!

Again, neither of these two are extremely tough. Hit this guy with         |
Groundus and Groundus sword. Do NOT use flarus, as it will heal him.       |
He has some decent attacks, but nothing that Zephrus can't heal up         |
every round. His reulgar attacks hit for about 150 damage. If you          |
are struggling, turn around and exit this place to go level some more.     |
Sreiously, you'll need it.                                                 |
===========================================================================|

After you kill him, hit the switch in the back of this room. A message will say
"Part of the ancient device unlocked!"

Now head out into the main hall. As you head to the right (East) you will see a
small room to grab two chests from for a WHITE MAGIC HEART and HP UP ELIXER. Go
through the door on the East wall to fight another boss and do the same exact
thing.

This guy is more of a regular enemy than a boss. Groundus Sword seems      |
to do more damage than Waterus. He has a single target attack that         |
does about 50-200 damage and causes paralyzes. Just heal your status       |
if this occurs. Honestly, this guy didn't last more than 3 hits from       |
me and it was over. If your struggling(I don't know how you would be)      |
then you should just heal and keep Wallus up until Corporeal charges       |
and let him have it.                                                       |
===========================================================================|

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

This guy has a lot of HP, but is still nothing you shouldn't be able       |
to handle. Hit him with Waterus Sword and Waterus for close to 3000        |
damage! Have Jiro use Zephrus every round. Maro and Zola can hit away.     |
He has a few damaging attacks, but if you could handle Stone-saurus Fire   |
breath than you can definetly handle this guy. His Crimson Blood Rain      |
will cause 200 damage to every character with Magic Defense around 500.    |
Make sure you are ready for this. The Bellybutton Ring of Fire would       |
work great in this battle if you have one. Any other elemental resistance  |
would help too. If you are struggling, make sure you get spells like       |
Previve and Wallus up and running. If you have fought any of the Side      |
Quest bosses already this guy should be easy work for you! Don't forget    |
your Corporeal!                                                            |
===========================================================================|

After you beat this guy, head out of the north door into a room with a warp
device. Make sure you activate it!

NOW IS THE TIME TO LEAVE AND DO ANY LEFT OVER THINGS BEFORE WE CONTINUE ON!

Head out the East door to another puzzle room. Do not hit the first switch on
the left. Continue and hit the second switch first, then go back and hit the
first switch. (2, 1) Cross over the center path now. Grab the chest from here
for HIMIKO'S RING. Now hit switch 1, followed by switch 2. (1, 2) This sets the
platforms back to their original positions. Now, leave the room.

Head over to the West room now and kill all the enemies in the area. Grab the
chest before you hit any switches for NENE'S NECKLACE. Then go and hit the 1st
switch(the only one you can right now.) Next, go hit the 2nd switch. (1, 2)
The platforms should make a path from a door to the chest over here. We will
come back to get this chest, so leave the room.

Back at the warp device, take the Northern door now. Head to both the West and
East doors to get the chests you set the platforms up for. You will recieve a
HIMIKO'S BRACELET and a NENE'S BRACELET! After you are done collecting these
chests, head through the Northern door to another big puzzle room. 

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

From the entrance hit the switch closest to you over on the East first. Then
follow the path the platforms just made out to the distant Northeast side switch
and hit it. Then hit the Southeast corner switch. Now head all the way down to
the West, passing the entrance to the room and hit the farther switch on the
Southwest you can reach right now.

Go through the door this makes a path to. After you enter you will hit another
Boss Battle!

This giant head attacks you. Unlike the robots before, this guy will       |
absorb water based attacks, so stick with flarus. The head is kinda        |
crazy and spooky, but nothing we can't take care of. His attacks hit       |
most targets and do 100-200 damage, but zephrus can handle damage control. |
Flarus 2-3 times will finish him off. He won't last very long.             |
===========================================================================|

Head through the door after the battle and hit the Northern most switch here
and then hit the second switch you can reach too. This will make the platforms
connect directly to the door you just came out. You need to head back through
the bottom left door, the same one you entered before, and come out the door to
right after you fought the boss. You can now hit the other switch! After, you
should hit the Northern most switch in this little area again to make a path
out. Go back to the first door we entered this room from. Again, hit the switch
closest to you on the East. Head down to the Northern most door on the East
wall and go through it. Be ready for another Boss Battle!

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

Head out the other door in this room. Hit the switch in this area and and head
back around through the doors to the main room. Now go to the door you first
entered the puzzle room from. The switch nearest to the East you need to hit
again. Then hit the switch in the Southeastern hand corner again. After this, a
path should open to a switch in the very back Northeastern side. Hit this switch
and continue down the long path of platforms into the room in the back center!

WARNING: There is a teleporting device in this room you need to take, but be
ready for a tough boss battle! HEAL YOUR HP/MP NOW! You just did a lot of work
as well. If you are not confident you can take the next boss, Warp to Mecha Cube
and SAVE YOUR GAME! This is not like the rest of the battles here and will be
extremely difficult. The enemy also has an Rare Item you can only steal from
him that you will want if your going for the ITEM COLLECTION ACHIEVEMENT! It
isn't hard to get back here now that the puzzle is solved. You just Warp back
and continue North all the way here.^^

In the room you teleport to, head south and enter a room where the final
showdown with Szabo will begin and you are about to begin the final showdown of
the entire game!!!

This is going to be a lengthy battle. Szabo has a lot of HP. Keep          |
hitting him with Groundus and Groundus Sword for major damage. His         |
attacks can hit everyone and they do some heavy damage. Keep your          |
WHM healing with Zephyrus every round. Use Marumaro and Zola to keep       |
regular attacks up. Don't forget to steal from him. This is a one          |
time only item. (I believe it's NENE'S RING or something like that.)       |
If you are struggling with trying to stay alive and are taking a lot       |
of damage, using Wallus and Previve can really make a difference in        |
this battle. I also cast Regenera right at the start of the battle.        |
This will restore I good amount of HP every round and will minimize        |
the overall need to heal every turn.                                       |
                                                                           |
Look to the King Poo advice in the Ancient Ruins Cavern section below      |
for a more in depth view of how you can prepare better. I would also       |
make sure your character has high agility. The faster you move, the        |
faster you can attack and heal. If your Corporeal attacks become           |
available make sure you use them. Everytime a character attacks you        |
should be pushing at least a 1000+ damage. If you have already fought      |
the dragons and King Poo or Gold Mecha this guy should not be a            |
problem. If this is the case, than Szabo has no chance of winning.         |
Just keep the onslaught up and this will be over before you know it.       |
The only move you should really watch out for is Double Special Shot       |
which does 200-300 damage to all characters.                               |
===========================================================================|

After the battle follow Szabo around and open the four chests on the way.
You will get a MEGA MP UP ELIXER, ALL-HEART, ALL-HEART, MEGA HP UP ELIXER.
Activate the last warp device here and warp out to rest and to save! If you
activated all other warp devices you should get another ACHIEVEMENT for
using this one! Congratualtions!

When ready head into the teleporter for the real FINAL BATTLE!

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

This battle isn't very long either. Nene has some damaging attacks this    |
time. These include spells like Shadowus. He doesn't have a lot of HP, so  |
just hammer away with Groundus and Groundus Sword. He should fall before   |
he becomes a problem.                                                      |

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

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

I don't want to ruin this for you, so come up with your own strategy. This |
boss has heavy hitting attacks, and I think he is the toughest boss in the |
game, including the side quests ones. (Besides King Poo and Gold Mecha) One|
word of advice is if he uses the Mist attack, use wind magic against it.   |
This is the only way to get rid of it. If you do need help with strategy,  |
look to the King Poo Section below. Good Luck!!                            |
===========================================================================|

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

CONGRATULATIONS ON BEATING THE GAME!! Sit back and watch the awesome ending!

|****************************************|
| 6) Leveling, SP, & Gold Farming Tricks |
|****************************************|
|----------------------------------------|
|========================================|

In actuality, you can do all 3 of these in the same place at the same time. I
would recommend the Southwestern Island for this. You will get around 15k Gold
by linking Poo's here. You will also get 40-80 SP from Platinum Poo's here, as
well as great Experience from Zebra Poo groups. I have seperated them into the
3 topics below though, for the optimal place to do each one.

|==============|
|**************|
|  SP Farming  |
|**************|
|==============|

There are two places to SP farm and they depend on where you are in the story.
The first is available after the events at Pachless Town. This is the best spot
to farm until you recieve your Mechat and have access to new areas. You really
only need the Field Barrier skill in order to farm, but there are a few items
that help. These items are the Black Belt and the Eyepatch.

-----------------
| Field Barrier |
-----------------

Make sure you level up Barrier Mage for this skill. Your Barrier Mage will get
Field Barrier 2 around level 22-24. Fight normal battles and it shouldn't take
too long to level this up. With Field Barrier 2 you can kill enemies for 10 MP
each! What you really want is Field Barrier 3. With this, killing enemies only
takes 1 MP and with the Regenerate MP skill you will have almost infinite MP
for this skill! I would recommend waiting until you visit the second SP farming
area for Field Barrier 3 though, as it requires Barrier Mage to be at level 50!

------------
| Eyepatch |
------------

Find the Autographed Manuscipt in a chest in the desert with the Crystal Spires.
Bring the Autographed Manuscript to the traveler in Lal Mountains Camp. Give him
the items and he will give you the EYEPATCH!

---------------
| Black Belts |
---------------

Black Belts can be stolen from Corrosive Poo. Please check the Ancient Ruins
Cavern section below to learn how to do this. By stealing, running away, zoning,
and re-entering you can steal this item again and again. You can also get a few
from Barrier chests. Please check the Barrier List section to find out where
they are!

****************
| Instructions |
****************

Now equip a Black Belt or Eyepatch on all character. You can only get 2x SP.
This accessories do NOT stack. So don't worry about putting more than one on a
character. Equip the Field Barrier skill on someone and that's it!

*************************
| First SP Farming Area |
*************************

The first area you can access right after Pachless Town. You need to cross over
the stone pillar that allows you to cross the Gordge. Over here you will find
Mecha Base. You will notice the Base moves around on a circle pathway and as it
goes around a TON of robots spawn! What you want to do is run around behind it
with Field Barrier on and your SP items equipped. You will recieve 2 SP for
every enemy killed this way. Within an hour, I was able to get every characters
all jobs to level 15! Whenever you run out of MP, jusy teleport to a town, rest,
and return here. This is definetly the best area to farm SP at until you can
head to the next area!

**************************
| Second SP Farming Area |
**************************

The second area is the Southwestern Deserted Island. This is available after
getting your Mechat. You find find a LOT of different Poo Snakes here. Make
sure Field Barrier is equipped and your SP accessories. I would change you
character with Field Barrier to Barrier Mage now and level it up to 50 this
way. It won't take long and then you will never run out of MP here.

Make sure Stink status is on all of your characters. You can use an item,
Garlic, to do this. I would also equip your characters with Attract Aura. Now
run around this area killing Poo Snake with Field barrier. You will recieve
2-4 SP a Poo here. After a while, a silverish Poo will appear. This is the
Platinum Poo! You want to engage this Poo Snake in a real battle. MAKE SURE YOU
ENGAGE PLATINUM POO WITH ANOTHER POO SNAKE GROUP FOR THE FIGHT. Now kill the
other Poo Snake group first, then when you enter the Platinum Poo Snake battle,
LET HIM FLEE! You will recieve 40 SP from him, and with your SP accessories this
will become 80 SP!! Holy Crap! I was able to level 5 jobs for all characters to
40 in 1 hour! This is the best spot to farm SP in the game. Even at higher
levels you will gain 1 level every time you kill one of these. After a while,
they will appear more often. In the meantime, use Field Barrier on the other
groups here!

|================|
|****************|
|  Gold Farming  |
|****************|
|================|

The best Gold Farming area is not available until you get your Mechat. You are
going to need a few accessories in order to be successful at Gold Farming. The
reason for this is because you need to kill Golden Poo Snakes!

----------------
| Poo Bracelet |
----------------

You get the Poo Bracelet from a Blue Barrier chest in Jibral. This accessory
will allow you to kill a Poo Snake in one hit! 

--------------------
| Kelolon Necklace |
--------------------

Kelolon Necklaces are used to raise agility + 50. You can find these on the
Deserted Island and a few Side Quests listed below.

----------------
| Ballet Shoes |
----------------

Basically, you want an accessory that that will nullify the Kelolon status you
recieve from the above necklace. This accessory is given to you by the NOTHING
man. You can also get some from Barrier chests. There are also many other
accessories you can use here. Most of the nullify status ailments accessories
are recieved from doing the side quests below!

---------------------------
| Crown of the King Ghost |
---------------------------

This is the key accessory here. This will give you Gold x 2. It's a little
tricky to get it however. You need to get the Epistole of the Ghost King key
item from a Red Barrier chest in Exile Forest. Then you go to Forest of the
Dead and deactivate a Green Barrier Wall blocking your path. There is a trans-
formation box back here. Put the Epistole of the Ghost King in and get the
Crown of the King Ghost! Now I think we are all set...

****************
| Instructions |
****************

Equip your fastest character with the Kelolon Necklace, Bellet Shoes, and Poo
Bracelet. Now equip any character in the party with the Crown of the King Ghost
accessory. You are now ready to Gold Farm. Go to the Southern Deserted Island.
(The one with only Golden Poos.) Make sure all characters have the Stink Status
by using Garlic or something. Now when a Golden Poo Spawns I tend to use Stun
Bomb and then back attack. Your character with all the agility plus gear should
attack first and with the Poo Bracelet it will be a one hit kill. The Golden
Poo will normally drop between 0 - 30,000 Gold with the Crown of the Ghost King
equipped!

|================|
|****************|
|    Leveling    |
|****************|
|================|

The best leveling place for experience is debatable. It seems the Golden Poos
give great experience along with Gold. The Poo's on the Southwestern Island also
give decent experience. There is one place I also like to level at though, the
Ancient Forest Ruins. The location is in the Side Quest section below. You will
also want to collect the 3 Lei's in this game before you start leveling. They
give you an experience bonus.

-------
| Lei |
-------

The first Lei you can steal from Moody Dragon. It can be a pain restarting your
game and killing all the Kelolon until you finally steal it from Moody. but it
is definetely worth it. I would recommend using Field Barrier to kill the
Kelolon and make things go smoother. You should also remember to equip the
Treasure Hunt skill. If you downloaded the DLC, you can also use the MASTER
THIEF manual to steal it, but this is a one time only item!

The second Lei you get from collecting 1400 NOTHINGs and talking to the NOTHING
man in Jibral. This is the most challenging one to get and hopefully you have
been examining everything in the game.

The third Lei is in a chest on the Third Floor of Upper Mecha Base. 

**************
|Instructions|
**************

Now equip your 3 Lei's on whichever characters your want to level the most. If
you choose Golden Poos on the Southern Deserted Island you will get about 1000
exp a battle, 2000 with characters with Lei equipped. If you go into the Ancient
Ruins Forest, you can link 4 Zebra Poo's right at the beginning and get 4000
experience from these battles, with Lei's 8000 experience a battle! You will
need to zone out and re-enter in order to chain these. Lastly, on the South-
western Deserted Island you can link Poo groups non stop. All three of these
are very good ways to gain experience. Remember to have all characters with
Stink status and Attract Aura if you are going after Poos!

================================================================================
[ Items: Medals x 9, Flawless Emerald, Sleep Powder                            ]
================================================================================

Exile forest is just a short path leading to Alumaru Village which is the main
goal. As soon as you enter the Exile Forest to the southeast of Jibral you will
get a c/s. You can't enter the cave yet, so continue forward and you will exit
onto the world map. Over to your left you will find two chests containing
MEDALS x 9 and FLAWLESS EMERALD. Keep following this path to find another chest
with SLEEP POWDER. Continue southward until you reach the village.

|============================|
|----------------------------|
|      Alumaru Village       |
|----------------------------|
|============================|

================================================================================
[ Items: Stout Garlic, Mega Magical Medicine, Thorn Vines, Light Crystal, Ultra]
[        Medicine, Flawless Sapphire, Phoenix Talon, Grand Shadow Crystal,     ]
[        Grand Light Crystal, ???, Scarf                                       ]
================================================================================

Activate the warp device to the right of the entrance. Head over the bridge to
the left to get another scene. Check out the shops here and buy whatever items
you need. They have a good selection of spells if you make it here early enough.
I was able to pick up LV4 - Kelolon, Lv4 - Extracta, and LV4 - Resista.

In the house next to the shop you can read about the history of the Gorgo
People so stop by. You can also check the cabinet here for a STOUT GARLIC.
Now head in the next house over and look in the dresser for MEGA MAGICAL
MEDICINE and THORN VINES. In the cabinet you find a LIGHT CRYSTAL and ULTRA
MEDICINE.

After you search all the houses and are ready to continue head onto the center
platform and talk to Sura-Sura to ring the bell. Talk to her again afterwards.
There is a blue barrier chest behind Jeelala's house and a green barrier chest
over by the spell shop for future reference. Cross over the bridge that was
previously guarded and head right to grab a chest on a broken bridge holding
a FLAWLESS SAPPHIRE. Go down the wooden bridge and you can enter the inn. Wow,
it is like extremely slowed down horrible porn music. Anyways, upstairs search
the dressers and cabinets for PHOENIX TALON, GRAND SHADOW CRYSTAL, and GRAND
LIGHT CRYSTAL.

Now, go up towards Jeelala's mansion and grab the chest on the right for (???,
damn I forgot again....)Head over to the right side of Jeelala's mansion and
go behind it. You will get another c/s here. Open the chest to the left for a
SCARF and head over to the gate. Choose to go inside the gate.

|============================|
|----------------------------|
|     Treasure Warehouse     |
|----------------------------|
|============================|

Enemies: Gold-Eatting Tiger, Gold Giant, Parvenu Pelican

You need to follow the light from the ring. On your right you can open a
treasure chest for FLAWLESS SAPPHIRE. Then head forward, some penguin random
encounters will occur. They aren't too tough. Kill them and keep following the
light. At the first intersection take a left to gather three chest containing
500 GOLD, 100 GOLD, and 500 GOLD. After the third one a tiger will appear and if
you run to the four one you will fall through a hole in the ground first. Do
this because below you can collect four more chests holding FLAWLESS RUBY,
MEDALS x 1, PHOENIX WING, and a BELLYBUTTON RING OF EARTH. You will see a chest
on a platform that you can not reach yet. If you go up the staircase you will
reach 1B.

Go through the door back to the entrance. Now go back to the light from the ring
and go right this time following it. Fight the tiger on this side. Grab the two
chests on this path for 500 GOLD and 100 GOLD. Go left at the next intersection
to grab that chest you missed earlier for GORGO ELIXER. Now go back and follow
the right path. Another intersection, do NOT go right. You will fall through the
floor and be ambushed by a group of 6 monsters. Follow the path to the left
instead. Grab the chest on the way for 1000 GOLD and then head right at the next
intersection to grab the chest there for MEGA MAGICAL ELIXER. Do NOT go past
the chest or you will fall through the hole. Go back to the intersection and
head north. Fight the penguin and grab the STOMACH-BAND accessory. Now go west
and grab the three chests on the left path. They contain 500 GOLD, 100 GOLD, and
a LIGHT CRYSTAL. Return to the path and continue forward to grab 2 more chests.
One has MEDALS x 30 and the other 500 GOLD!

You will come to an area with a door and the ring stops. Head left first to
grab a chest for 500 GOLD and keep going left. You will fall through the floor
onto that platform, where you can now get the "MYSTERY PART UN!" Go all the
way back to the door and fight the Gold Giant. This guy is not a boss, but he
is pretty tough. I had Maro charge and attack and hit him and it said his
armor cracked, so try that first. Then I hit him with everything I got. All of
his attacks are VERY powerful, but single target. Keep at it and you'll beat
him. After you hit a checkpoint. Time to enter, be ready for a boss Battle.

The first battle is easy. Just use flara and flara sword to inflict        |
enough damage and they will go down fast. For the second part of the       |
battle, do the same thing taking out the 2 gorgo first. Then concentrate   |
on Jeelala with the same strategy. Jeelala can be extremely annoying here. |
He will continuosly summon to Gorgo every time his turn comes up if he     |
is still in the back row. Make sure you take out the two Gorgo up front in |
the same turn so another does not get summoned. Use spells that hit all    |
targets or work both Gorgo's down at the same time. Once Jeelala is by     |
himself he usually doesn't Summon anymore. Still he can do decent damage,  |
so make sure you are healing every round. He shouldn't give you too much   |
of a headache though!                                                      |
===========================================================================|

After the battle make sure to grab all the treasure in this room. There is quite
a bit to gather. You will find MEDALS x 9, GRAND LIGHT CRYSTAL, MEDALS x 5,
GRAND TRIBES BRACELET, ANCIENT FEATHER, 5000 GOLD, DIAMOND-ENCRUSTED RING,
MEDALS x 7, and PART OF ETERNAL ENGINE. Exit the room from up the staircase.
Check the whole house for items and exit into the city. You will get a c/s here
and a GRAND TRIBES' NECKLACE. Time to go back to the Exile Forest. I would rest
at the inn first and save your game!

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

Head into the cave here. Take a right at the first intersection to get a chest
with MEDALS x 1. Go over to the left now. You will zone into a room where you
hit a checkpoint. Time for another boss battle!

Another easy battle. Use wide area attacks like ground or grounda to take  |
out the poison mists first. GuruGuru is poisoned right from the start of   |
the battle. As soon as the poison mists fall the battle will end so        |
concentrate on them. Do NOT attack Guru Guru, you don't need to defeat     |
him. I am not sure if you lose if he dies though. I wouldn't recommend     |
trying it!                                                                 |

Back in the town you get a c/s, congratulations you finished your first side
quests! You should Warp back to Jibral(or whenever you last were when you
decided to do this side quest and continue with the story!)( You can use (ctrl +

**************

The following quests are available after obtaining the Mechat to fly around in.
If you look at your map after recieving the Mechat you will notice Gold Stars.
These are the new unexplored areas, and there are plenty of them!

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

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
These are the stats for the Kelelon Necklace: 

Attack+30,
Defense+170
Agility+50
HP+100

The bad part is you start every battle as a kelolon. You can cure it,
but you must waste a turn or an item. It is up to you. Personally,
I equipped an extra accessory that prevent status ailments and I never
start out as a kelolon. The accessory was Ballet Shoes.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This necklace is a MUST HAVE item. The sun necklace is
pretty nice too. The stats are:

Attack+30
Defense+180.

Make sure you come here first as it is a quick quest.
Well, all but that damn tree!!!

|   Western Deserted Island  |

Enemies: Sea-Temple Turtle

Down by the Undersea caves you went to earlier is a chain of islands. If you
fly overhead you will see two treasure chests on one of the islands. Western
Deserted Island should appear on the screen. Make sure you land here. One of
the chests contains MYSTERY PART TROIS!! The other chest contains a GRAND SHADOW
CRYSTAL. You now have the last of the three piece to the engine.
Congratualtions!

Enemies: Poo Snake, Pungent Poo Snake, Iron Poo Snake, Conquest Poo Snake,
         Zebra Poo Snake, Iron Poo Snake, Copper Poo Snake, Stone Poo Snake,
         Dark Poo Snake

From the western Island follow the chain of islands to run into this one. You
will meet some interesting Poo Snakes here. There are actually many kinds, so
keep fighting until you kill them all. Grab the chest on this island for a
SUN NECKLACE!

|============================|
|----------------------------|
|  Southern Deserted Island  |
|----------------------------|
|============================|

Are you starting to get the picture yet. Continue on the chain of islands to
find this one. Open the chest at the end here for a KELOLON NECKLACE. Guess
What you find here!!! 

The almight Golden Poo Snake!!! If you want another achievement you need to kill
this guy. So what's the problem??? He flees on you right at the beginning. I
tried back attack, first attack, regular attack, letting him hit me, and nothing
worked. 

In order to win you need to collect the Kelolon Necklaces. There are a few
listed in this side quest section. You recieved one on this island, along with
another in a chest by the glass spires. I equipped the necklace along with any
other agility boosting items I had. You also need to equip the person with the
Kelolon necklace an accessory that nullifies all status ailments. There is one
in the game, but you get it in a later side quest dungeon. You may need to wait
until then if you want to farm Golden Poos. The last piece of equipment you need
is the Poo Bracelet. (From a blue barrier chest.) With this you can kill any poo
(excluding Jumbo, Corrosive, and King) in one hit! I used a Stun Bomb from the
field to paralyze it, followed by a back attack to engage it, and attacked it
in battle.

Bamm, easy victory! Congratulations!

NOTE: If you just want to kill it for the achievement right now do the same
thing, except equip another character with a Kelolon necklace and agility
boosting gear. Equip the slower of the two characters with the Poo Bracelet.
Now engage the same way. With the first character use a Princess' Kiss on the
second character.(the one with the Poo Bracelet) Then attack with him and you
will kill it!

|============================|
|----------------------------|
|   Eastern Deserted Island  |
|----------------------------|
|============================|

Head over near Almaru Village and fly around the chain of islands there to find
this Island. You fight some interesting ghost mobs here. Make sure you kill one
of each type for your dictionary. Grab the treasure on the northern part of the
island for MEDALS x 30! Head to the southern part of the same island for a boss
battle!

SAVE YOUR GAME FIRST!!

This guy is another pain in the @$$ battle. At the beginning he kept using |
fire elemental up, so I used watera to bring his elemental back down. It   |
did do this, but also did very little damage. Then, I figured it out he is |
weak versus fire, but uses fire elemental up to reduce the damage. The way |
to get around this is after he uses Fire UP hit him with watera twice. His |
elemental weakness will go way down. Then he will try to super boost his   |
fire elemental 2-3 times and burn himself out, this means his weakness to  |
fire can be used now.                                                      |
                                                                           |
Hit him with flarus and flarus sword for major damage, 1000+. He will use  |
Death Blossom around this time, which will automatically kill one of your  |
characters. He can petrify you with Stone Sap, so cure when this happens.  |
This attack hits everyone for about 150 damage. His roots attack can cause |
up to 700 damage to some characters and hits all at the same time. Shu     |
luckily only took about 300. Revive if this happens ASAP and good luck.    |
You just have to outlast him. As long as you don't get hit with the root   |
attack constantly you should be able to get him. The Coporeal attacks      |
will cause major damage, so just last until you can use a few. The         |
Coporeal attack may be the only thing that gets you to scrape through this |
tough battle!                                                              |

After recieve your Mechat. It is one of the Gold Stars on the map. Directions
to locate it are below.

Enemies: Albino Mammoth, Phantom Pelican

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

When you land in this area. You can find 2 chests you have access to. One is
north of the village and contains PART OF ETERNAL ENGINE. The other is to the 
southwest and holds a BOW TIE.

As you approach the cottage you get a c/s. Check the surroundings in order
to find a chest around the back of the house for a MEGA MP UP ELIXER. There is
another chest on the side of the house with another KELOLON NECKLACE inside!

Now to find a way in. This took a little investigation to find the entrance
into. You need to walk back down the steps that lead to the cottage. When you
reach the bottom stay close to the cliff the cottage is on and follow it around
back to see an entrance. Talk to the people in this room and one will give you
the FIREPLACE KEY. Walk over to the fireplace and continue downstairs. 

This town is a little odd. It seems everyone wants to marry Marumaro! Open the
chest near the stairs you came down to get a GHOST-CRUSHER BRACELET. Walk
around chatting with everyone to get some scenes.

You should buy the new spells and accessories in this town, they are very
helpful. Don't forget to activate the Warp Device! Now head into the inn. You
can go into the rooms upstairs and open the dressers and cabinets for a GRAND
RUBY, MEDALS x 10, KELOLON ELIXER, GRAND SAPPHIRE, and a GRAND EMERALD.  

So after enough marriage proposals Marumaro will run off. Keep chasing him
around the circle here until he heads into a house. Go into the house and talk
to the elderly woman who will talk about their headgear. You have to keep
chasing her from the sofa downstairs to the one upstairs, over and over again
to finally get the whole story. Remember to check the cabinet and dresser
upstairs for MEDALS x 5 and MEDALS x 3. Afterwards you get a scene and Marumaro
will join you again.

Exit the house and go up the stairs that lead to the ladder. Talk to the elder
on top to the stairs first. He mentions something about a dragon to the west of
here. To find out more about the 5 dragons, look at the 5 Dragon Side Quest
Section below. I suggest you hold off on the dragons for now and do some more
optional areas to gain levels before then.

(The dragon he speaks of is the Blizzards Dragon on the plateau just west of
the village.)

Leave the village now. To the west is where you find the Aurora Ruins.

The ruins are located exactly to the west of Kelaso Village. You will see the
blinking star shape for it on the world map. If you fly over you will see it's
name appear. It looks like a big dome building!

Enter the ruin and get the chest near you which contains a KELOLON NECKLACE.
Now go through the door on the left and at the end of that hall you will hit a
checkpoint.

Make sure you are ready before you enter this door!!! There is an extrememly
tough battle ahead.

This battle is very tough. Right from the start keep nailing the           |
stonesaurus head. Make sure you are targeting the head to attack. Keep     |
pounding away at the head with Windus and Windus sword. I had Shu hitting  |
for 1900 damage with windus sword and Kluke hitting for 1200 damage with   |
windus not charged. Maro hit the head with a fully charged physical attack |
and knocked it clean off,lol.                                              |
                                                                           |
If someone in your party gets petrified use Marumaro or Jiro to heal them. |
Otherwise, Jiro should be using zephyrus at ALL times. Even if you have    |
full health this guy can kill you. He often attacks twice in a row. His    |
fire breath attack hits 2-3 characters for 400 damage each. He can launch  |
this twice in a row for more than 800 damage to each character total! So   |
pray this does not happen. If he keeps petrifying a party member than you  |
are very lucky! He also has thunder breath and Mow Down attack which also  |
cause major damage. I noticed once I knocked his head off, he only attacked|
with single target attacks and Mow Down afterwards. I don't think he can   |
use Breath attacks without his head. So try to get rid of it for a much    |
easier battle. If you still can't survive, it's time to level some more. No|
amount of advice will get you through this one if you are under leveled.   |
Follow the strategy above and hopefully you make it out alive. Good Luck!  |

Golden Scarab---> Blood Sucking Beetle

This place in around the middle of the map. It is the western most gold star on
the world map. It shouldn't be very hard to find.

As you enter grab the chest straight ahead for a PRISMATIC CRYSTAL. There are a
both of Zebra Poo Snakes around. I linked 5 of them and got 4,500 exp!

You may notice a mushroom on your right.(southeast) If you touch it, it will
heal you. Grab the chest to the northwest for MEDALS x 1. East of this chest
there is a machine sticking out of the ground, press the button on it. There is
a path north and south here.

Take the southern path first. Go all the way to the end where you find a chest
you can open for SHADOW STEP SHOES. Now head back.

Take the northern path this time. On this path you will find another machine to
push a button on. At the end of the path the area opens up. A little to the
north is a chest you can open for an IRIDESCENT WIND. The path splits again
here, north and east. Take the north path first. When it opens up you will be
ambushed by 4 tigers! Kill the tigers and push the button on the machine to the
right. There are 3 chests here, but one of them is locked at the moment. Open
the other two for 10,000 GOLD and MAGIC ELIXER. Remember the location of this
locked chest for now. It seems we need seven buttons to unlock it, at this time
we only have 3. Head back to the last intersection.

Take the east path this time. On this path you find another machine with a
button to hit.(4/7) You come across yet another intersection. You can head east
or north at this time. The north path is blocked by another hydra enemy. Ignore
it for now and head east to activate another machine. (5/7) Grab the chest at
the end for a ANCIENT KING'S RING! Now go back for a battle with the Gorgon
Hydrataller.

This guy is a regular enemy. Hit him with flarus and he will fall fast. You get
a BLACK BELT from the chest right behind him. Follow the path to an open area
where you can grab a chest for a FLAWLESS SAPPHIRE. If you continue down the
path you will run into another Boss battle!

Keep hitting him with waterus and waterus sword. Like the other land shark |
battles this keeps him from using Heat Laser. If you keep up this strategy |
he will fall soon.This boss is not tough at all and shouldn't be a problem.|
When fighting him, he went down before he hit me a single time. If you do  |
happen to have problems with this guy, check the other Land Shark Battles  |
for advice. Waterus Sword/Spell should be hitting for over 1000+ damage.   |
Hit him 2-3 times with this, along with charged Maro attacks and Zola's    |
double attack and you will defeat him.                                     |
===========================================================================|

A chest will appear afterwards, open it to get WEAPON PARTS!

There is a lot to search in this sandy area, including another machine to hit
the button on over to the west side.(6/7) Continue up the southern path to zone.
Extermine all the enemies in this area. Remember all them chests you saw earlier
that we couldn't reach. We are up in that area now!

Open the chests for IRIDESCENT CYCLONE, MAGIC LIFE-CRUSHER BRACELET, and MEDALS
x 50! Do NOT jump off the cliff here, but follow the west path to another
machine you can hit the button on.(7/7) Grab two chests here for PART OF ETERNAL
ENGINE and FLAWLESS AMETHYST.

Now junp off this cliff. Follow the path back to the beginning of this area.
Take the northern path here again. At the next intersection, take the northern
path again. This will lead back to the locked chest for a GRAVITIC NECKLACE!
Now you can leave this area.

***********
| Level 1 |
***********

Activate the Warp Device right in front of you. Save your game at the save point
if you fee like it. Go straight until you reach a 4 way intersection. Head north
first because the west and east doors are locked. Grab the chest in the room you
enter for MEGA MAGICAL MEDICINE. Continue east out of this room. Enter the room
at the end of this hall and kill the Kelolon Defender Enemy. A chest will appear
holding a KEY TO LAYER ONE Key Item. Head back to the 4 way intersection. Head
down the West hall. Grab the chest in this hall for MEDALS x 5. Unlcock the door
in this hall, but don't go through it. Instead, go down the east hall now. Open
the door here and take the teleporter up to the Second Floor!

(Both teleporters lead to the same floor, just different ends like the ones
here. The reason we go west is to get the chest, then we head east and go up
so you can examine all items if you're collect NOTHINGS. Plus the east
teleporter brings you into a room with a chest, in case you were wondering.)

***********
| Level 2 |
***********

Collect the chest in the teleporter room for a ANCIENT FOSSIL. Head west into
the center room and kill the Kelolon Defenders again. Another chest will appear
holding a PHOENIX WING. There is nothing in the west room here but a teleporter.
If you are examining everything you can check the hall for NOTHINGS though.
Leave the center room through the South exit. 

If you use your barrier to kill the armored fish you get +4 SP!! Continue down
the hall after. At the end you can take the West or East path again. Take the
East path first and kill the Kelolon Defenders. Another chest appear with KEY TO
LAYER TWO Key Item! Head north into the teleporter room to grab the TECH-CRUSHER
BRACELET!

Do not use the teleporter, instead head back into the center room go down the
West hall. In the room you enter there is a chest with CURE-ALL inside. Fight
the Crystal Giant blocking your path and head through the door to teleport up!

***********
| Level 3 |
***********

Grab the chest in this room for a GRAND SHADOW CRYSTAL. There are 3 exits from
this room. They go North, West, and East. Head out the East door first. In the
room at the end kill all the Kelolon Defenders and a chest will appear. Open it
for the KEY TO LAYER THREE Key Item. Now head back to the teleporter room.

Head out the North door this time.(The west door has a Black Barrier blocking
the path. Don't worry, we have have it soon enough. Fight the Giant at the end
using Shadowa Sword for some good damage. Open the nearby chest for MEDALS x 5.
Go through the door and teleport up.

(Don't worry about the other transporter on level 2 thinking that is will take
you to the blocked off area up here, because it doesn't. If you use it, it
brings you back to the beginning of the 2nd level and is a pain to figure out.
Just take this transporter and move forward.)

***********
| Level 4 |
***********

Open the chest by the transporter for 1000 GOLD. Again the hall on the West is
blocked by a Black Barrier. Head north down the corridor to the next room. Head
down the hall to the East here. Follow it all the way to the end for a chest
with MEDALS x 15. Exit this room to the North. Kill all the Kelolon Defenders
here and a chest will appear. Open the chest for LV6 - WALLUS! Head all the way
back and continue North.

The room up here is full of Robber Clams. Kill them all. This room has two exits
to the West and East. In the room kill all of the Wandering Reflections and exit
to the North. In the next room exit to the East. Kill all the enemies her for a
DEEP SEA KEY Key Item. Now head all the way back to the room with the West and
East exit and head out the West Exit.

Down this hall use the key on the door to unlock it. Open the chest in this room
for ULTRA MAGICAL MEDICINE. There is a South and North exit in this room. Head
out the South door. Go as far South as possible and kill all the Kelolon
Defenders in this room. A chest will appear with a INFINITY RING inside! The
East hall just leads to the Black Barrier that was blocking the way. Go all
the way back North. Kill the Giant blocking the North exit and head out it. 

Head through  the door at the end of the corridor and be ready for a Boss
Battle!!

The only thing you can attack at first is the head. So hammer away at it   |
with Flarus and Flarus sword for major damage. His attack didn't do too    |
much damage to me. Water laser hits for about 50-100 damage on a single    |
character. Next you move on to the dragons Throat. Do not change tactics,  |
keep hitting with Flarus for 1500+ damage! Next comes the Chest to attack. |
He might start casting Watera now. This still only does 100-200 damage. I  |
usually cast Regenera at the beginning of battles now to restore HP from   |
minor attack like this. Once you hit his Belly things can start to get a   |
little dangerous. His regular hits now cause about 300-400 damage to a     |
single target. Again nothing to worry about just keep the healing up.      |
After his Belly comes his Spine. When you hit his Spine he still uses      |
regular attacks along with Mow Down. Mow Down is another AOE attack that   |
hits for about 100-200 damage. I really don't think you will struggle      |
with this battle. With Regenera up I don't have to heal once the entire    |
fight.                                                                     |
                                                                           |
He does have a lot of HP, due to his many body parts, but never really     |
becomes threatening. Lastly, after his Spine comes his Tail. Keep          |
hammering away and he will go down within a few attacks. If you are having |
trouble with this fight try equipping the Bellybutton Ring of Water and    |
Magic Resistent gear to protect yourself. I also managed to steal a        |
BELLYBUTTON RING OF WATER from him!                                        |
===========================================================================|

After the battle two chests appear. One has the BLACK DEVICE!! The other has a
LASER UPGRADE!!

Now continue through the north door. Three more chests! One contains
MYSTERY PART DEUX!! The other has an INFINITY RING!! The last carries LV6 -
SHADOWUS!! Congratulations on gaining some nice items.

Now, before you leave, head back out and all the way south down the hallways.
Take the East path at the very end and get rid of the black wall in the way.
Take the teleporter back down to the third floor. From here head South to
another Teleporter. Don't take the teleporter, but exit into the West Hall.
Get rid of the Black Barrier Wall. Through the door here is another chest
containing a RENEW BRACELET!! Now, warp out of here.

Let's go Black Barrier hunting now! (or you can wait until later and check
                                     the Barrier List Section then if you like.)

First Warp to Mural Town. The chest is in the same room you warp in. Open it and
Warp to Lal Mountain Camp. Open the chest in here and Warp to Devour Village.
Exit Devour and enter Devour Forest. This chest is to the left for the first
Black Machine that got rid of the roots blocking the path. Next warp to Alumaru
Village. Exit the village and enter Exile Forest. Enter the caves here. This one
is down by where you fought the boss battle here. You also got a White Barrier
chest here previously. You will have to fight the Poison Hydrattler again. Kill
it and open the chest. Now warp to Kelaso Village. This is a wall that blocks
you path to two chests. It is around back to one of the houses. Open the chests
and speak to the Light flying around on the ground. This is the Fruit of Ancient
Knowledge to get some advice.

Warp to Ancient Factory now. Be careful of the Gold Mecha Robot here. Take the
first conveyor belt to the second half of the room. You want to enter the North
west door here.(Compass is upside down.) The Black Barrier blocks your way out
of this hall. Open it and go in to get the two chests. The Sea Cube ones you
should have had from above, but if you aren't following my walktrhough. Warp
to Sea Cube. One barrier wall is on Level 3. Take the west exit from the room
you teleported on to Floor 3 to find the Barrier Wall. Open the chests in the
room behind it. There is another barrier wall up on the fourth floor. Again
take the west exit from the teleporter. Get rid of the barrier and go to the
room behind it for a chest. This chest you can actually get without getting
rid of the barrier and going the long way around. That is why it is not listed
above. If you are following this walkthrough, then we will get the Black Barrier
chests in Mecha Base Next. When we enter the Final Dungeon, I will walk you
through getting them in there too. For everyone else, go to the Barrier List
Section to find directions to the rest!

After Recieving Your Mechat.

Enemies: Roball, Bomber Mecha Crab, Iron Poo Snake, Black Double Axe, 

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

Before we do this you should fly around the area looking for chests we didn't
get to earlier. If you followed this guide, there should be nine chest left in
this area. Grab them for a SLEEP POWDER, IRIDESCENT WIND, MEGA INVISIBILITY
ELIXER, MEDALS x 3, MEDALS x 6, POWER-SWAP DART, PART OF ETERNAL ENGINE, and a
FLAWLESS EMERALD. Close to these chest there is two chests that can only be
looted by having a Mechat and landing it on the cliff. One contains a FLAWLESS
EMERALD and the other a THORN BRANCH. Over on the Canyon-east side there is also
one other cliff you can land on that contains two more chests holding a FLAWLESS
RUBY and MEDALS x 5. 

WARNING: The compass in this dungeon is upside down. North is the bottom, south
the top, east the left, and west the right! Make sure you pay attention to this.
If I say go East I mean left on the compass!

*************
| 1st Floor |
*************

This place can be kind of confusing. Run forward and grab the chest for MEDALS
x 3. When you reach the first intersection run right(west) and into the room to
grab another chest for MEDALS x 8. Head out of the South door here and go all
the way South in this hall to reach another room. There is a chest in here with
MEDALS x 5. You will be ambushed when you open it. Now head back out the door
you entered. Go North and head East on the center path. You need to kill the
robots here to release the security locks in this place. There is nothing but
enemies in the 2 Eastern rooms, but you can examine them if you like.

So, continue on when you are ready. In the last room on the center path there
is an elevator. First grab the chest on your lower right to get LV6 - MAGIC
ATTACK UP spell! Then grab the Black Barrier chest on the left for BALLET SHOES.

Then, hop in the elevator and go to the second floor.

*************
| 2nd Floor |
*************

Note: You may want to trip 1 laser. The enemy Black Double Axe will appear. You
need to collect him for your Monster Book if you are going for that!

This floor is full of lasers that you must make your way around. From where you
start exit the elevator room to the South.  

In the next room there are lasers everywhere. You do NOT want to go through the
lasers, but you do need to fight all the robots on this floor. To do this get
close to the lasers and wait for the robots in them to come to you.

Kill the robots and continue following the path where there are no lasers. This
is easy, first go right(west) to the end. Then move forward(south) in this hall,
then head all the way left(east). Stop at every intersection to kill the robots
around. Continue all the way to the far East end. At this end, head south again.
Now go all the way West killing any other robots. You want to enter the door all
the way down at the West end here. Kill all of the robots here and the Security
Lock should release. Grab the chest in here for a PHOENIX WING.

Now you need to head all the way back to the beginning of this floor. Where you
took the first intersection West you want to go East instead. There is a door
down here you just unlocked with the Security Release. The chest in here contain
LV6 - PREVIVE!

Now head all the way back to the far southern end of this room. You will need to
get rid of a Green, Red, and White barrier to continue on here. Go through the
door at the end. Grab the chest on the left in here for ANCIENT KING'S NECKLACE.
There is one more chest in here with an ANCIENT KING'S BRACLET. 

Take the elevator to the Third Floor.

***********
|3rd Floor|
***********

Check the elevator room here for another chest with MEDALS x 5. There are two
exits to this room, East and West. Take the West door first. (The other has
lasers in the way.) Fight the Double Axe monster here and grab the chest for
a GRAND SHADOW CRYSTAL. Head out the Northeastern door and continue to the
middle room. You fight an egg type monster here. It is not really a boss just
hit it with Flarus and Flarus Sword and it will fall fast. The only move a saw
was gravity press. Open the chest in this room for MEDALS x 3. Open the Black
Barrier chest for BELT OF HERMES.

Afterwards head down the southeastern door. (The one that leads to the other
side of the entrance. There are 3 lasers here, but if you time it right you can
fit right under them.) Back in this room grab the chest for MEDALS x 5 and head
back to the center room, avoiding the lasers again. Now, head out the Northeast
door. In the room up here kill the Crabs and open the chest for a GRAVITIC
EARRING!. Leave using the other exit in this room. You will end up in the
elevator room. Open the chest here for BRAWLER ELIXER and ANCIENT KING'S
EARRING. Leave this room through the West door. Kill all of the robots here and
the Security Lock should release. Now grab the Black Barrier chest in this room
for ETERNITY BRACELET.

Head back to the elevator and up to the 4th floor.

*************
| 4th Floor |
*************

Check the elevator room for another chest with MEDALS x 7 inside. Head out the
door and down the hall into another door. Grab the two chests in this room for
MEDALS x 4 and PRISMATIC CYCLONE BRACELET! Fight the Black Double Axe. Go
through the door and down the hall again to another room. Grab the chest for yet
more MEDALS x 9, and fight the four robots. The security lock will release
afterwards.

Then keep moving forwards(south), almost there! Check this  elevator room for
some new GREAT items! You will recieve a GRAVITIC BRACELET and MISSLE UPGRADE
PART A! Make sure to search the blue circles, they have some good stat
boosts too!

Take the elevator up to the Fifth and Final Floor!

*************
| 5th Floor |
*************

Examine the blue circles for more NOTHINGs. Head out the only door and through
the next door too.

BE READY for a Boss battle in this room!

This guy is easy compared to the StoneSaurus and Ghost Yeet we have        |
already faced. His Quick Draw area attack only hits everyone for 100-200   |
points of damage and he isn't that fast. All of his attacks take a turn or |
two for him to charge up. Flarus, Windus, and waterus all seem to do the   |
same amount of damage, so just keep hitting away and he will fall before   |
long. I tend to use Shadowus Sword because it does ever so slightly more   |
damage. He has one attack, Wind Something, that can instantly KO a         |
character, but it is not much of a problem. Unlike the previous Scything   |
boss he does not have a helmet or anything you can hit. This guy should be |
a walk in the park on normal difficulty. If you are having problems you    |
seriously need to go level.                                                |
===========================================================================|

You get a RENEW RING from the chest in this room for this quest!

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

After Recieving Your Mechat. You should however wait until you collect some of
The Mechat Parts listed below before you visit it. That's why it is at this part
of the Side Quest Section. It is a good idea to get all of this done before you
head to Upper Mecha Base and the Final Dungeon.

Now before we do the next side quest, we are going to stop here. You may have
noticed this dock earlier. It is up by the lal Mountains sheep tribe village.
Search the area and go directly above it and land. At the mechat dock you can
upgrade your mechat with all the parts we have aquired. The list below is a
complete list of all parts and their locations.

Parts:
	
        Heatsink(Eastern Deserted Island) - Prevents machine gun overheating
        Weapon Parts(Ancients Ruins Forest) - Weapon attack strength up
        Laser barrier Parts(Sea Cube Fight) - Protect against 5 ring laser
                                              attack
        Missile upgrade part B(Lal Mountains Camp Chest) - Carry more
                                                           missiles
        Missile Upgrade Part A(Mecha Base) - Carry even more missiles
        Lock-On Upgrade Part A(Aurora Ruins boss Fight) - Increase lock-on
                                                         number
	Lock-On Upgrade Part B(Exile Forest) - Increases lock on number
        Coating Part A(4 Floor Upper Mecha Base) - Higher Defense 
        Coating Part(Kelaso Village) - Higher Defense


Now we have a mechat not to be reckoned with! After leaving here, you should
only be missing one part. We need to get the Coating Part B from Upper Mecha
base. Let's go do that now!

After Recieving Your Mechat.


WARNING: SAVE BEFORE YOU ENTER. ACHIEVEMENT AHEAD!

This base is easy to find. It is the bright yellow star on the world map in the
middle of the water towards the south-center of the map. Upon entering you get
into another mechat shooter game. Happy you made them upgrades!! This is another
achievement, you need to get a perfect on this level. You also need to do it on
normal mode. Good Luck!

UPDATE PLEASE READ: I recieved an email telling me that a Perfect on this would
does NOT mean the same thing as in other Mechat Shooting games. You CAN take
damage in this one! In order to score a perfect you need to take out all
weapons! That's it! I took so many missle hits that my barriers were gone and I
still lost half my health and got a perfect. In order to get this perfect though
you need to take out ALL machine guns. This includes all the little ones on
the bottom, the four on the corners, and all the ones up by the white pillar on
top. You need to take out all pink missile lauchers, the circle Ring Lasers, the
pink launcher under these as well. If you don't finish this stage fast enough
all four pink launchers here will respawn and you must kill them again. Lastly,
you need to take out the white tower. If you kill everything you will get the
axhievement!

******************
|Mechat mini-Game|
******************

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

Your first job is to take out the red circle things on the base. Make sure you
read the tutorial, because it will show you what I am talking about. You need
to take out the ones on the right side of the machine first, as soon as the last
one on the right side is destroyed you need to immediatly switch to shooting
down the red circles on the left side. Do NOT let them catch you by surprize
with a load of missles.

In the meantime you also need to shoot down the machine guys inbetween killing
red circles and shooting down wayward missiles!! Use your missiles!!! With my
upgrades, I could carry 16 on hand and lock on with a bunch of them at once.
When you finish this we move onto the next stage.

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

You get a quick c/s, then time to continue taking this thing down. You need to
target the circle orbs with the white lights here. Your other target is the
white light in the center on top of the base. SAVE THIS TARGET FOR LAST. As
soon as you take down the circle orbs, a red light appears in the area
underneath. These fire three missiles at once.

By the white light in the center are another pair of machine guns on each side
firing at you. If that wasn't enough you also have the big high calibur machine
guns on the four corners near you firing. Target the red light first while
firing missiles at it try to target the two machine guns on top as well. As soon
as the red light is destroyed, concentrate on the machines gun closest to you.
After a few tries you will see what I am talking about. Congratulations on
another achievement if you make it!!

******************
|Upper Mecha Base|
******************

Enemies: Red Defender, Sonic Sharkfly, Squinting Cyborg, Rolling Barb, Rolling
         Ripper, Chief Rolling Ripper, Thief Roball, Clawed Bomber, Black
         Double Axe, Security Electoput, Soaring Globe

You will recognize this area right away. Seems the same architect that build
the Mecha Base made the Upper Mecha Base,lol. 

NOTE: Again the compass is upside down here. So make sure you pay attention to
what you are doing when I give directions in my guide.

***********
|1st Floor|
***********

Same layout as first floor of Mecha Base. Open the nearby chest for a GRAND
SHADOW CRYSTAL. This is the only chest on this floor. You just need to run down
every hall and enter every room to kill every monster. I am going to leave this
up to you. Just make sure you visit every room. When this is done you will get
the message Security Lock released. Now head to the elevator room and open a
chest containing MYSTERY PART GAMMA, The final piece!!

Take the elevator up to the second floor.

***********
|2nd Floor|
***********

The second floor is the same as the second one on Mecha Base, but it is HARDER!!
If you hit the lasers a few times, you will be sent all the way back to the 1st
floor elevator. Now there is also another rule, You can pass under four Lasers,
but if you try to pass under a 5th laser you are sent back to the first floor
elevator as well. I am not talking about tripping them I am talking about
passing them!!

Ok, with that said, this is going to take a few trips being sent back. Exit the
elevator room and get rid of the Blue, Red, and White Barriers in the way. Head
left(East) at the first intersection and into the room to kill the robots. Now
trip some wires to get sent back.

Now at the entrance to the room again, take a right(West) at the first
intersection passing under one laser. At the end head south. Now follow this
path West. Take the first path South you come across to pass two more lasers.
Now take this path West and enter the room. Kill the robots here and grab the
chest for a LIFE-CRUSHER BRACELET! Now leave the room and when you try to get
through the laser to the elevator area you will be sent back to the first floor!

Now to get to the barriers blocking the elevator. Take a left(East) at the first
intersection. Do NOT go in the room but follow the south path up. Pass through
the areas with one laser but stick to the East wall. It will take you up top
with only one more laser to cross, leaving you with only crossing four lasers
and being at the entrance to the elevator room. Get rid of the Blue, White, and
Black Barriers here, then enter the room. In the elevator room open the two
chests for an ETERNITY RING and ETERNITY NECKLACE!

Ride the elevator up to the 3rd floor!

***********
|3rd Floor|
***********

Take the West door first and continue down to the room to kill all the enemies.
Exit through the other door in this room. Kill the enemy in this hall and
continue into the center room. Kill all of the enemies here. This room can be
annoying because you can't use Field Barrier on any of the enemies. After you
finish them off head out the southwest door. Kill the enemy in the hall and
enter the room at the end to kill a few enemies. Exit the other door here and
into the hallway. Kill any enemies you may see here. The end will bring you back
to the elevator room. Now return to the center room.

Next take the Northwest door. Kill all enemies down this way. Exit the room
through the other door and continue into the elevator room. Open the chests in
here for a LEI and a SHIELD BADGE!! Now head out the East door. Enter the room
down here and kill the enemies. Open the chest here for an INFINITY BRACELET!
Exit through the other door and kill the one enemy here. Now return to the
elevator room.

Take the elevator up to the Fourth Floor!

***********
|4th Floor|
***********

Head right down the center(South)path on this floor. Kill the robots on the way.
If you keep heading straight you run into another egg monster. Keep using Flarus
to kill it. Continue straight some more. In the elevator room you get COATING
PART A and the INFINITY NECKLACE!! Check the Blue Circles here like Mecha Base,
they contain a bunch of Stat Boosts!

Take the elevator up to the Fifth Floor!

***********
|5th Floor|
***********

Head forward and be ready for a Boss battle!

The guy is pretty easy. He has reflect on him so do NOT use magic attacks  |
on him or you will be your own worst enemy. You can still use Magic Sword  |
on him to cause some major damage. I tested out most of the Magic Sword    |
attacks and Shadowus Sword seems to do the most damage. Keep hitting him   |
with regular attack along with this. Have your white mage heal every       |
round. Compared to other bosses we fought up till now this guy hits worth  |
shit. He also doesn't have a lot of HP. He should fall within 2-3 rounds!  |
===========================================================================|

Grab the RENEW NECKLACE from the chest behind the boss as your prize and get
out of here!

After Recieving Your Mechat.

First talk to Elder Baun in Kelaso Village, go back and talk to the old lady
that kept switching couches. Well, this is the best info you are going to get
from the game. Now, below I will list where to find the dragons. These guys are
no joke. They are very tough. The only enemies in the game that gave me more of
a problem are King Poo and Gold Mecha Robot.

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

I did it!!! I found out how I could beat all 5 dragons with my characters level
around 50 and it works!!! First make sure you have field barrier 2 or 3,
hopefully 3, but I did it with 2. Now what you want to do in change everyones
job to white mage. If you take WHM to level 12 you get both double item and
enhanced item effect. Now any character can act as a super healer. Next I kept
my BLM as WHM for now and brought her to level 25, where I can increase my White
magic level.

Now take all your jobs and level Barrier Magic to level 12. You will get the
support ability that makes your magic defense the same as your Barrier job. Are
you getting the picture yet. Now everytime you hit level 12 with a job switch to
another job. You want to level every single job to level 12. With this done you
will have some of the most useful abilities that they can attribute. If you
already took your Generalist to at least level 22-25 you should be set. If not
level your generalist to get skill+6,etc. Now here is what we want to do.

(Hint:How to level Rank: Equip the Field Barrier like stated above and any
accessory that gives double SP. One is the eyepatch which you get from finding
the autograpphed manuscript near the glass spires and giving it to the traveler
in Lal mountains. The only other item is Black Belts, which you should have
plenty of from following this walkthrough. If not, you can steal them from
Corrosive Poo and get them from Barrier Chests. Check the section below for that
information.

Now go to the Mecha base world map area. The robots here only give +1 SP but
with the accessory it goes to +2. We only need every job to level 12 and another
whm job to level 25. This will only take about an hour. You are ready to go!)

(Hint: With the new SP Grinding and Leveling tricks you can do this much faster.
Check the Leveling, SP, and Gold Farming Section of this guide for more info.
The problem is all bosses in the game with become ridiculously easy after this,
besides King Poo and Gold Mecha Robot. Use at your own digression. I would
recommend beating the game first before doing this trick. You will recieve 80+
SP a battle if you follow the guide!)

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

Now I was getting completely decimated by the dragons at level 50. I followed
the above tips. It took me about an hour to get everyone to get there job to hit
level 12-15. This is very simple, fast, and effective. After I did this simple
procedure I was owning the dragons like they were POO SNAKES!!!
(Not King Poo....)

The lightning breath attack went from doing 500-600 damage to a character down
to about 200 to every character. Between accessory equips and the assassins
speed boost I always had 1-2 healers ready after everytime the dragon attacked.
This left me with three physical attacked that could each super charge their
attack from the monk ability, counter every physical attack, and unleash hell on
the dragon. Before I would not have dream about charge attacking for fear of
being dead before that time came, but this does work.

I have all 5 characters charging spells, attacks, and everything else at the
same time without fear of dieing. Please take the time to follow this strategy.
I will get more in depth at a later time, but this WILL work!! If your white
mage and black mage can't get to heal in time you always have every character
that can use two items and enhance their effect!!

***************************************
|Near to the water Flowing Underground|
***************************************

For this one you need to teleport to the Ancient Factory. From here head to the
Underground River. The area isn't that big, so use Field barrier and run into
the area where you got rid of the blue barrier in the path earlier. If you
forgot where that is you need to head to the save point and take the right path.
This area has a ton of kelolon. You need to kill every last one of them. I still
used field barrier to finish this up. As you go to exit the waterfall area here,
a dragon will fly around and engage you in battle!

The Moody Dragon is going to be the easiest dragon in this side quest you  |
will fight. Do not forget to equip the Treasure Hunt and Loot skills and   |
steal the Lei. Unlike the Corrosive Poo you can not flee and get multiples |
of these. You will need to soft reset if you don't get it in your first    |
battle. He is extremely fast, usually he will attack 2-3 times when his    |
turn comes up. His attacks are mostly single target hitting for 50-60      |
damage. Everyntime you attack him he will get enraged and power up. Even   |
after his power up he is not too dangerous. When he is all the way powered |
up you will see a message saying he is "absolutally furious". Keep         |
attacking and he will become exhausted and power down. Shadowa and shadowa |
sword seem to do a good amount to damage to him, so keep wacking away with |
this. He does not have extremely high HP or damage, so it shouldn't take   |
more than a few rounds to kill him. Heal with Zephyra if you need to and   |
soon you will defeat him. One down and four more to go! Make sure you pick |
up the chest he drops after for a Moody Dragon's Fang. This item is        |
nothing right now, but later you trade it along with the other 4 dragon    |
fangs for one of the strongest accessories in the game.                    |
===========================================================================|

|South of Glass|
****************

This obviously means the glass spires. Warp to Lal Mountain Camp. The glass
spires area is the great desert. If you land and walk along the coast on the
Southern edge you will finding it flying around. He is at the Southern most
tip of this area. It is not hard to spot!

                                                                           |
This guy will absorb any physical attacks. So do not hit him with          |
a regular attack from anyone! He hits for a lot of damage, but you         |
should be able to keep up with healing if you are around my level and      |
have agility adding gear equipped. You should follow the same advice       |
for this one as you did for Amethyst Dragon. Remember to equip any         |
accessories that will reduce elemental damage. The Bellybutton Ring        |
of Wind can really be a life saver in this battle!                         |
                                                                           |
It's Fearsome Tornado attack can hit for 400+ damage to every character.   |
I would recommend Windus Sword again. I know you would think Groundus      |
Sword, the opposite element of the dragon, would work better but it        |
doesn't. This is the same with all dragons, because they are flying they   |
are weaker to Wind based attacks. I have tested this! Have your BLM use    |
Windus for a decent amount of damage as well.                              |
                                                                           |
Before the middle of the fight, I recommend using Quicka because it        |
seems like he gets much faster and attacks much harder. He also can        |
completely deplete your MP! DO NOT USE CORPOREAL ATTACKS, YOU WILL HEAL    |
HIM!!!!! The end of this battle turns into more of a stalmate. You will    |
be able to stay healed and alive, but damage to this boss will come very   |
VERY slow with you reviving and healing every round. This can be one of    |
the tougher fights due to physical attacks healing the boss. My last piece |
of advice is if you leveled all characters jobs up to 30+, then equip      |
everyone with Magic Sword or Black Magic skills. This will allow you to    |
attack with all characters instead of just your Swordmaster and Blackmage. |
===========================================================================|

You get the PHANTOM DRAGON'S FANG after defeating him! 

********************
|West of the Murals|
********************

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

This guy is TOUGH. His lightning attacks are powerful and extremely fast.  |
If you want to stand a chance you need to level your jobs like suggested   |
above. Your Magic defense and defense should be up in the 500 somewhere.   |
Even with this his Lightning of the Gods attack will hit 1 character for   |
250-400 damage. He also has a powerful Lightning Breath attack that will   |
hit all members from 250-500 damage with your defense this high. He is     |
fast, so he might even do this twice in a row. You will want to have your  |
characters agility around 150-200 so you can avoid this. I would also give |
all character Double Item skill, so you can use Phoenx Talons on two       |
people if anyone dies. Keep your whm casting Zephyrus to heal every round. |
I would also try to keep Wallus up to reduce some damage along with any    |
other spells that reduce damage. The HP + 50% skill is great here too. All |
my characters had 999 HP in this battle.                                   |
                                                                           |
As for attacks, I tested all magic swords. It seems Windus works the best. |
I was hitting for 2000+ damage with Windus Sword and 1500+ with Windus.    |
Maro's charge attack ans Zola's Double Attack hit for another 1000 each.   |
This boss has a ton of HP. If you are really struggling, just heal the     |
entire battle. When your Corporeal attacks come up use them. Shu's attack  |
hit for almost 7000 damage and ended the fight. Even without attacking     |
once, if you get 2-3 Corporeals in he will go down. I also managed to      |
Steal a ANCIENT KING'S RING from him. Congratulations on a hard fought     |
battle!                                                                    |

Grab the AMETHYST DRAGON'S FANG from the chest.

|East of the Aurors|

This one is right near Kelaso Village. Warp or fly there. Now on this little
area you will see a small plateau near the village. It's the highest one over-
looking the Village. It is not very big and it is very close you should not
have a hard time finding it. When you land the dragon will appear right in
front of you!

This guy starts out pretty easy. Just keep attacking him and healing.      |
Shadowus Sword will cause up to 2000 damage. You can only cast the spell   |
Flarus once, DO NOT CAST AGAIN!! He will put up reflect after you cast it  |
once and you will take the damage next time. Be smart and take it nice     |
and slow. This is a battle you don't want to have to do again, ever...     |
                                                                           |
The only problem is his Frost Breath which occasionally freezes a          |
character and does about 250-500 damage a character. I tried cure-all      |
and it didn't work, so wait it out. This guy gets real nasty towards the   |
end. His attacks are rapider and more devestating than ever. If you        |
follow my strategy from the other dragon fight you should make it          |
through. All these dragon fight work out almost the same way, except for   |
little tweeks here and there. If you are really struggling, try casting    |
Previve at the start of the battle and keep it up. You could also equip    |
the Resurrection skill on all character for 1 free Revive. Again,          |
accessories with elemental resistence or the Bellybutton Ring of Water     |
may help. If you are properly leveled and equipped you should be ok. At    |
the end you may have to rely on only using Corporeal attacks in between    |
healing though. Keep it up he will fall soon. You can also steal a RIBBON  |
from this guy if you are lucky enough.                                     |
===========================================================================|

You get the BLIZZARD DRAGON'S FANG in the chest.

*****************************
|Near the cavern of crystals|
*****************************

This guy is inside Gul Mountain. Use the teleporter to arrive in the area. Now
you want to head towards the back of the cave. When you get to an intersection
where you have a ghost blocking one of the paths, go this way. You will finally
come to an intersection where you can take a left through a puddle. There is no
way to walk around it, so just walk through it. Shortly ahead you will find a
red barrier. Get rid of the barrier and as soon as you walk forward the dragon
will attack. You do not get a chance to engage it yourself so be ready!

Again, this guy is no pushover like the regular bosses for this game! He is|
very tough, and hits fast and hard. Hit him with everything that you have. |
Windus seems to work extremely well against him causing 100 damage for the |
spell and 2000+ damage for the sword! You may need to keep both Jiro and   |
Kluke healing for this battle. His super attack is called Black Wind and   |
even with all the tips stated above it, still does close to 600 points of  |
damage to each character. The only thing that will keep you going for most |
of these battles is making sure you have higher agility, so you can both   |
attack and heal more often than he does. He has another attack called      |
Ancient Force that does about 300 damage to each character and you will be |
praying that he uses this instead.                                         |
                                                                           |
Again at the end he starts getting a little out of control.Keep the Phoenix|
Talons flowing and the healing going to stay alive. Bomb him with your     |
Corporeal attacks when they become available to make quick work of the end |
of him! If you need more strategy, look to the other battles. I managed to |
steal an ANCIENT KING'S BRACELET from him!                                 |
===========================================================================|

Grab the SPARK DRAGON'S FANG from the chest that appears!

Now open the other 2 chests in the area for a CHAIN and MEDALS x 40!

|Back to Kelaso|

Now head back to Kelaso village with all the fangs and give them to Elder Baum.

Congratulations on getting the DRAGON BRACELET and another ACHIEVEMENT!

This is absolutally the best bracelet in the game.

After Recieving Your Mechat.

If you hope to win this battle, at this lowest you should be level 60+ with
your job rank maxed out. This is the TOUGHEST boss to beat. BE PREPARED!!!

Note: I recentely beat King Poo at level 55 with default jobs level 90+ and
all other jobs on each character around level 30. It is possible, but will
require some level of luck! The strategy I followed below is how I beat him
at such a low level.

The Ancient Ruins Caverns are the ruins right by Talta Village. Make sure you
visit them. You need to anyways in order to complete the barrier achievement.
Now if you followed this entire walkthrough, you have probably already killed
Jumbo and Corrosive Poo, in which case you can skip over these battles at this
point. If you didn't the information for Jumbo and Corrosive are listed below
as well.

When you enter you will get a c/s. Get rid of the blue barrier and continue
forward. You will get another scene and see a Jumbo Poo. Now go fight that Jumbo
Poo.

For this boss battle I recommend linking it will one of the regular Poo    |
Snakes in the area. Use the first battle to get your support spells up. You|
will want to buff your defenses and speed up your turns now. If you are    |
doing this fight at the first available chance after getting the Blue      |
Device it can cause you some problems. Jumbo Poo has extremely low HP, but |
very deadly attacks. He has a Putridbreath AOE attack that will hit        |
everyone for 200-250 damage. This wiped out 3 of my characters in one hit. |
By this time I had a few hits on him already and one more hit killed him.  |
I would recommend flara and flara sword to dish out some good damage. I    |
did not choose to charge attack in this battle at all. I just hit him with |
regular attacks and flara. This battle can be extremely difficult at this  |
point. If you choose to do this battle at the end of the game, when you    |
go for King Poo, this will be an extremely easy boss battle.               |
===========================================================================|

Grab the chest afterwards for an ANCIENT WARRIOR'S BRACELET. Once you grab the
chest Corrosive Poo will appear. First run over to the chest protected by the
blue barrier and get that. This Poo isn't very hard either, matter of fact he
isn't even a boss. He is a very good item you can steal though, so I gave him
a boss section.

                                                                           |
Ok, you want to start off by stealing the Black Belts before you consider  |
killing this guy. When you kill him he will no longer respawn. You should  |
equip the 3 skills I told you about above.(Steal, Loot, and Treasure Hunt) |
Now I recommend only using Loot and Treasure Hunt to get the Black Belts.  |
I attempted to use Steal and I went 0/8 on the Black Belt. I started using |
Loot and nailed 4 in a row!                                                |
                                                                           |
So in order to get going, back attack Corrosive Poo. I usually ONLY defend |
and heal with the other characters. Then I have Zola Loot a few turns and  |
I usually get an item off the boss by then. If you get an Ultra Medicine,  |
flee from battle, zone out of the cave, and come back in. This will reset  |
him everytime. If you get a Black Belt you need to do the same thing       |
anyways. Repeat this process until you have a Black Belt for all 5 of your |
characters. After this you are ready to fight and kill him!                |
                                                                           |
For this boss battle I recommend linking it will one of the regular Poo    |
Snakes in the area. Use the first battle to get your support spells up. You|
will want to buff your defenses and speed up your turns now. If you are    |
doing this fight at the first available chance after getting the Blue      |
Device it can cause you some problems. Corrosive Poo is like the opposite  |
of Jumbo Poo. He has extremely high HP and his defense isn't bad either. I |
got lucky and critical hit him with flara sword for 800 damage first       |
strike. It seemed to me Flara sword was the best attack to use on him, even|
the spell flara was not as damage. Corrosive Poo also has very damaging    |
attacks, but they are all single target. I only saw single target attacks  |
anyways. He will hit for 200-300 damage, which will wipe out of almost     |
wipe out a character every turn he has. If you have Phoenix Talons and the |
revive spell you should be all set. Just revive everytime someone falls    |
and keep slowly whittling away at his heath. He will go down eventually.   |
If you are doing this early in the game, King Poo will not appear, but if  |
you are towards the end of the game he will appear. Please look to the     |
side quest King Poo section to read strategies on him.                     |
===========================================================================|

After the battle with Corrosive Poo run over like you are going to exit this
place and finally KING POO will appear!!

If he doesn't appear exit and re enter to see if he does. While you can fight
Jumbo and Corrosive Poo immediately after recieving the Blue Device, you can't
spawn King Poo until late into disc 3. There are many rumors that go around
about the conditions. Some say after you recieve the mechat, other that you
need 1-2 end game accessories(meaning Dragon and Ultimate bracelets for example)
. A little heads up though... I fought King Poo and lost, so I leveled some more
and killed the last of the 5 dragons, got the bracelet, and King Poo would never
spawn again. Luckily, I had a save right before I killed the last dragon. You
should be extremely careful of this. I am not sure if it caused him to despawn.

PRE BATTLE PREPERATION:
=======================

Make sure everyone has the best gear possible equipped here. The Ultimate
weapon bracelet, Dragon Bracelet, and Final War necklace are great. In the
other slots equip accessories that boost your speed. You need to have your
agility extremely high! I would recommend between 200-350 for this battle.
Your magic defense and defense should be around 500 for King Poo. You want
skills like Ninja Swiftness, Magic Barrier, and all other skills that will
boost your stats to the different jobs. On your mages you should equip
Double Cast and Spell Duration +50%. Both your mages(Jiro and Kluke) should
be able to cast white magic and barrier magic. I would give one black magic
and one support magic as well. You need your default job levels 90+, hopefully
Maxed! All other jobs on each character I had at 35+. Your characters levels
should be 60+, at least to scrape by. Make sure your HP is at 999 for all
characters. When you initiate the fight, link another Poo Snake enemy with
this guy!

(Hints:How to engage. You should start this battle with stunning and attack|
from behind or link a group of poos with King Poo. This stategy came from a|
forum board. This gives you time to get your support magic up to lessen the|
damage. I know support has not taken a major role for battle yet, but 33%  |
down on this guys attack will mean the difference between life and death!) |
The spells you really need to cast are quickus, previve, wallus, and any   |
other support spells that will reduce damage. You want to make sure        |
everyone has previve on and I would recommend equipping the skill          |
resurrection in case previve goes down in battle and you can't cast it     |
again in time. When you are ready to continue wipe out the last Poo snake. |
You may also want to charge a spell or attack so it hits King Poo right at |
the start of the battle!                                                   |
                                                                           |
Now when the battle starts you main concern through out is to keep previve |
up on all characters and wallus up. If you can do this, then the battle is |
yours. King Poo only has 3 attacks. Invitation to heresey is the dangerous |
one. It can hit all characters for 500+ damage with the skills listed above|
equipped. This is why you want wallus up at all times! His regular attacks |
do around 900-1000 damage to a single character. He usually attacks 2-3    |
times in a row when he does this. This is also why you need previve and    |
resurrection equipped. I would only recommend attacking with Flarus Sword  |
and Flarus when you have the chance and your characters are ok. All other  |
attacks do little to no damage. Remember to keep quickus up as well, so you|
get more turns. Your main goal is to last until your Corporeal attacks are |
charged. Each one of these attack will hit for 5000 + damage. King Poo will|
only take 3-4 Corporeals to finish off. So just buy your time until they   |
fill up making sure the above spells are up and characters are healed. This|
fight can still be difficult, but it comes down to luck at this point if   |
you are level 55ish. As long as he doesn't spam attacks you will be fine.  |
Congratualtions on winning a hard fought battle!                           |
============================================================================

After you defeat King Poo 3 treasure chests will appear. The chests contain
AUTOGRAPH PAPER, GOLDEN POO, and GOLDEN POO.

Note: The Golden Poo increase your max HP +15!

PRE BATTLE PREPERATIONS: Read the King Poo section. I managed to beat this guy
at level 55 as well and he is a little easier than King Poo. I didn't change 1
skill between this battle and King Poo and did just fine. The only different is
the moves we are going to use in battle. You should also link this one with

This battle is the same as King Poo's battle. You want to link a robot to  |
initiate the fight. You want to make sure everyone has previve, wallus, and|
quickus. Once everyone is set kill the last robot and enter the fight with |
Gold Mecha Robot.                                                          |

This guy actually seemed easier for me then King Poo. The move he uses most|
often is Large Caliber Beam Cannon, which will hit for 800-1000 damage. He |
uses it almost every turn. I usually have 2-3 people casting Wallus every  |
time they come up. I would dedicate them to this. Usually one would cast   |
before he attacks and another would right after. By juggling like this I   |
was only hit with the attack once or twice and previve soaked it up. I     |
would then double cast previve on everyone again and get wallus up. I would|
only attack with Shu and your Black Mage. Groundus seems to work best here |
hitting for 1000-1500 damage. If your support magic is all set you can     |
attack with the others as well, but remember to keep casting wallus even   |
if you don't think you will need it.                                       |
                                                                           |
Now once again, you are going to try to outlast him. Whittle away with     |
your Flarus attacks until Corporeal fills up. When this happens let him    |
have it. You should be able to take him down!                              |
============================================================================

Open the chest that appears afterwards for a GOLDEN ETERNAL ENGINE!
Congratulations on finishing your last side quest! Well almost, we still
need to find all the barrier chest locations.

|     8) Barrier List        |
|----------------------------|
|============================|

In most cases you recieve items from barrier chests. In a few rare cases a
barrier wall will block an item. There are only a couple, but they are included
below as well. In the guide I devote a section to when you get the device and
what to do with it. I will copy and paste it here as well. I know I am missing
some barrier walls here, like the Blue Barrier walls in Mecha Base and Upper
Mecha Base. This is because these walls don't really guard items, but prevent
you from further entering side quest areas. If you plan on doing Mecha Base,
Upper Mecha Base, Sea Cube, etc. you need every device in the game.

 BLUE DEVICE = 
  RED DEVICE = Broken Mecha Robot in Ancient Factory(Automatic)
GREEN DEVICE = After Pachless Town events(Automatic)
WHITE DEVICE = After the events in Noluta Village(Automatic)
BLACK DEVICE = From the boss in Sea Cube

Ancient Hospital---> ANCIENT WARRIOR'S EARRING

First warp to Talta village. Leave the village and head into the nearby caves.
This is where the Land Shark took you at the beginning of the game. Open the
barrier blocking the path. Head to your right to find and open the Blue Barrier
chest. 

Teleport to the Wilderness camp and grab that chest, then walk out the
entrance into Lot Wilderness East. Head north and grab this chest, then
teleport to the drill machine. Head up the elevator. Go up to the control room
and take the elevator there down. Head east and take the elevator on your
left. Head through the nearby door and grab the chest. Exit the drill
machine/warp to Lago Village. Now run to the Underseas cavern. Just keep
heading forward in this dungeon. When you come to an intersection where you
can go right(south) or straight(east), head right and you will run into it.
Open this chest then warp to Alumaru Village. This chest is behind Jeelala's
mansion on the left side. Open it and teleport to Jibral. The last 2 blue
barrier chests are here. Head into the lab in the basement of the castle,
then through the door near the stairs in here to find one of them. Now warp
back to Jibral(speeds things up) and head to the entrance on the town. This
one is through the gates at the very beginning of the town. We have one more
to go. It's not a barrier chest, but it's protected by a barrier wall. Warp
to Ancient Ruins Hospital. Run back to the elevator and choose the second
floor. The barrier is in the hall around the area where you entered the Head
Doctors Office. Grab this chest and warp back to Baroy.

Congratulations! You now have opened all the Blue Barrier chests!

                       Check above. You trade this item to this chest to obtain
                       CROWN OF THE GHOST KING!

Ok, time for another barrier chest hunt! First teleport to the Wilderness Camp.
If you talk to Donpa here, he will give you a MEGA MEDICINE. Next, go and head
out the back way. Just follow the little path and you will see it dead ahead
when the area opens up. Then warp to Mural Town. The chest is in the same room
you warp in. Open the chest. Now warp to Alumaru village(if you followed the
guide and did that side quest) and look for the chest up by the house next door
to the item shop. Grab this chest. Exit the town and enter Exile Forest. Head
into the cave in here. Follow the path all the way to where you fought the boss
battle here. You need to defeat Poison Hydtrattler to get to it. Use grounda
to defeat all mist enemies. Then hit hydrattler with flarus sword and he should
go down. Open the chest. Now teleport to Gul Mountains. Remember where you saw
the crack in the wall that you had a c/s and looked out the first time you where
here? The chest is over by this area. Check the Gul Mountain section if you are
having a hard time finding it.

Go ahead and Warp to Jibral now. Enter the castle. Travel like you are going
to the lab to find one of the chests right outside the entrance to the lab. One
of the doors here leads to the soldiers lounge, where another chest is located.
Open this one and head back to the great hall of the castle. Go up the stairs.
From here enter the Inner Courtyard. Open the chest here. There is also another
regular chest in this area I missed earlier containing MEDALS x 25 you should
get if you missed.

Now if you already have the EPISTOLE OF THE KING GHOST Key item teleport to
Forest of the Dead. From where you start head north and then west as soon as you
can. Cross over the brdige here and keep going. You should see the wall by now.
Enter it. The pods here fall and you can collect a THORN VINE, MEDALS x 6, MEGA
MAGICAL MEDICINE, ULTRA MAGICAL MEDICINE, and MEDICINE from them. Open the chest
in here and place the Epistle of the King Ghost in. You will recieve CROWN OF
THE KING GHOST!(Doulbes the amount of Gold Recieved!)

Now teleport to the Ancient Factory. Exit to the Underground River here. Head
back like you are on your way to the beginning of this place. You will see the
chest in plain site on the way. Open it up and Warp to Ancient Factory again.
From where you enter head south and west to hop on a conveyor belt. Ride the
belt and you will see the chest. Open this chest. Now you need to conintue all
the way through the Ancient Factory all the way to the top and exit. This is
the Wire Highlands and holds both a Red and Green Barrier Chest. 

You will be in the Wire Highlands. Open the nearby REGULAR chest for a KERCHIEF.
Head up the ramp of the north side here for MEDALS x 1. The red barrier chest
is right above you here, do run up and get it. Go back down and up the cliff on
the south side. Grab the green barrier chest up this way. There is another chest
on the lower area here holding a BOW TIE. Now exit this place.

On the world map here there is a chest with MEDALS x 1. Travel up the North west
path for another chest with GORGO ELIXER. Head back south and go around the
crack in the ground. Go to the entrance of the Ancient Prison, but continue
north on the world map for a CURE-ALL chest. This is the last of the green
barrier chests for now. We'll get Devour Village once we get there. Now warp
back to Pachless Town and exit to the world map!

Pachless Town Underground---> Leads to Pachless Plateau and 2 regular chests
Ancient Hospital Ruins -3f---> LV6 - ???
Ancient Hospital Ruins-1f---> LV6 - TRAPFLOORUS and LV6 - WALLA

First, warp to Mural Town. The chest is in the same room you warp into. Next
warp to Jibral Castle. This one is right outside the entrance to the lab. So
head down there and open it. Next, warp to the Ancient Factory. You need to
be careful in here not to run into Gold Mecha Robot. He will wreck you at this
point in the game! You need to head like you are going to the top exit of this
place. It is up on the ramp in the back that goes way up. Open this and warp to
the Ancient Prison. You start in one of the 6 cells. You want to exit this area
and go down to where the other 6 cells are at the opposite end. It's in one of
the cells at the end with a rat to kill. Open it and now you want to continue
deeper in to the prison. Go through the door with the red/blue light lock on it.
Follow the path right in here and go through the door. In this little hall is
a chest with white barrier. Open it and warp to Devour Village. The chest is
located in the village, back by a broken down house. Grab it and warp to
Pachless Town. The first chest is on a path behind the inn. For the second one
head up to the village chiefs house. This is way over by where the cow creatures
graze up here.

Head in the chiefs house and exit the back door. Go in the chapel and down the
ladder. The chest is all the way back where the boss fight occured. If you
forget how to get here, check that area in my guide again. At the end of this
area a White barrier Wall is blocking the path. Get rid of it and ride the
elevator up. This is Pachless Plateau. To the northwest grab the nearby chest
for a PRISMATIC CRYSTAL. Now head up the ramp. There is a chest here to grab.
To the FAR southwest grab the chest for a FLAWLESS EMERALD.

Now warp to the Ancient Hospital to go through the last 2 walls. The first wall
to go to is on the third floor. It's over by the elevator in one of the halls
off of it. Go in to grab the chest for a spell. Now take the nearby elevator
down to the first floor. Go inside to grab two more chests with spells in them.

Kelaso Village---> COATING PART B & ETERNAL ENGINE NECKLACE

First Warp to Mural Town. The chest is in the same room you warp in. Open it and
Warp to Lal Mountain Camp. Open the chest in here and Warp to Devour Village.
Exit Devour and enter Devour Forest. This chest is to the left for the first
Black Machine that got rid of the roots blocking the path. Next warp to Alumaru
Village. Exit the village and enter Exile Forest. Enter the caves here. This one
is down by where you fought the boss battle here. You also got a White Barrier
chest here previously. You will have to fight the Poison Hydrattler again. Kill
it and open the chest. Now warp to Kelaso Village. This is a wall that blocks
you path to two chests. It is around back to one of the houses. Open the chests
and speak to the Light flying around on the ground. This is the Fruit of Ancient
Knowledge to get some advice.

Warp to Ancient Factory now. Be careful of the Gold Mecha Robot here. Take the
first conveyor belt to the second half of the room. You want to enter the North
west door here.(Compass is upside down.) The Black Barrier blocks your way out
of this hall. Open it and go in to get the two chests. The Sea Cube ones you
should have had from above, but if you aren't following my walktrhough. Warp
to Sea Cube. One barrier wall is on Level 3. Take the west exit from the room
you teleported on to Floor 3 to find the Barrier Wall. Open the chests in the
room behind it. There is another barrier wall up on the fourth floor. Again
take the west exit from the teleporter. Get rid of the barrier and go to the
room behind it for a chest. This chest you can actually get without getting
rid of the barrier and going the long way around. That is why it is not listed
above.

Lastly, we need to go to Mecha Base and Mecha Robo Cube. If you are following
this walkthrough we are going to Mecha Base next. So continue on to the next
section. If you are reading this in the Barrier List Section, teleport to Mecha
Base. The first chest is on the first floor. It is in the elevator room. Take
the elevator to the Second Floor after. Now continue up to the third floor. One
of the chests is in the center room on this floor.(The room with the Egg Enemy.)
The last chest is in the Third Floor elevator room that leads to the Fourth
Floor.

Now Warp or enter the Mecha Robo Cube...This place isn't too big. It should be
hard for you to find the two black chests. If you look at this town like a
compass, with south being where the Mechat is, then the chests are one to the
West and one to the East ends. Congratulations on another Achievement!

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

***********************
| 9) Achievement List |
***********************

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

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

This one is easy, just attack an enemy from behind on the field and you will
recieve this one. You should get it right at the start of the game. There should
be no way you could possibly miss this one, even if you tried.

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

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

Note: You can Back attack an enemy, run away, and back attack again. You do not
need to fight and kill the enemy for this to count. It will be much quicker to
just Flee, then Back attack again.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

23)Got Dragon bracelet
----------------------

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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