CONTACT INFO/LEGAL MESS...........................................CONTCT ============================================================================== *========================================* | | | I. Introduction [INTRO] | | | *========================================* This guide is about all of the "unlockables" in this game. Get it unlockables? It includes all the location of places or chests that need a key to unlock them. Now do you get the joke? Anyways there are 3 keys that you need. They are the Thief's Key, Magic Key, and the Ultimate Key, listed in order. Now let me be clear, not every chest in the game requires a key to open. There are 2 colors of chests. Red and blue chests, the red chests is a one-time-open kind of chests. Once you open a red chest you won't be able to open it again. Now the blue ones are different. I think its once a day the chest will reclose and you can open them again. The loot is different everytime. Now back to the "unlockables" they are all red chests so you won't be able to reopen them. So your thinking 'wow why did I just waste my time reading the last 2 paragraphs for nothing?' Well the answer to that is yes and no. This being a chest guide I thought I would at least explain the difference between the red and the blue chests. Now for the list of keys and how to get them: *-----------------------------------------------------------------------------* |Key Name: |How to Get it: | |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------| |Thief's Key: | Turn in 4 Mini Medals in the city of Dourbridge for this key.| |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------| |Magic Key: | This key can be found in Gleeba on the top of the palace, if | | | start heading up the palace you will eventually come out of | | | with you and a chest one the other side of a fence. Go around| | | the dome and enter through the back and get the chest. | |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------| |Ultimate Key: | After defeating the Goreham-Hogg in Gortress. The chest to | | | your left will hold this key. | *-----------------------------------------------------------------------------* Now for the explanation part. The Thief's Key will open some chests not really that many but it will open some of them. The Magic Key will open those magical slime purple doors. As for the Ultimate Key it will open up anything really, but the real addition is that it will open up those prison cells. Apparently. people in this universe like to lock up treasure chests in prison cells but not the prisoners themselves? Well thats that, enjoy the guide and I hope it helps! ============================================================================== *========================================* | | | II. Chest Locations [CHSTL] | | | *========================================* So the main part of my guide. Let me expain how I have broken down the location of each chest. I have broken each chest down into 6 parts. Here they are and what each part means. *------------------------------------------------------------------------------* |Label: |Explaination: | |------------------------------------------------------------------------------| |Place: |This show the map that the chest can be found in game. This| | |is also the exact name of the map. Which can be found in | | |the top screen of your DS in the upper right corner of the | | |screen. | |------------------------------------------------------------------------------| |Location: |This is a vaguer direction to the chest. | |------------------------------------------------------------------------------| |Key Level: |As I have explained ealier in this guide there are 3 level | | |of keys and this will tell you which one you will need in | | |orderto unlock the chest. | |------------------------------------------------------------------------------| |Number of Chests: |The number of chests in the area that needs to be unlocked.| |------------------------------------------------------------------------------| |Loot: |What each chest contains. Loot wise. | |------------------------------------------------------------------------------| |Notes: |This is where I will give the most specific directions to | | |the chest and anything else that you might need to know | *------------------------------------------------------------------------------* ============================ | | | Observatory [CHST01] | | | ============================ Place: Observatory-L2 Location: The North East Corner of the Map Key Level: Ultimate Key Number of Chests: 2 Loot: Goddess Ring x1, Orichalcum x1 Notes: This chest is located inside the observatory, next to where Apus Major (the head angle) is.
