I: Thanatos Crest Fragments

Locations:

Crest 1: 
You'll run right over it in Stage 2 

Crest 2: 
You'll see it to the right side of a group of enemies in Stage 3. The camera zooms in on it. 

Crest 3: 
In stage 4, you'll have to eliminate all of the enemies, including 4 enemy generators in the four corners of the arena. Then you have to destory a central floating generator, once you've accomplished this, destory the Target enemy to make the piece appear at the Gate to the next location. 

Crest 4: 
In level 5, you will need to look at your map. When the road turns right, you will see two bubbles sticking out of the side of it. THere are two, and the Thanatos piece is in the fartheset one. You will need to destroy a few enemies in order to get it. 

Crest 5: 
When you begin Stage 6, you will be surrounded by enemies. First off run around and look for a cliff or ledge that you can jump on. If you're having trouble, look on your map to find a small node sticking out of the area. Jump up on the ledge as
high as you can to grab the piece. If it doesn't appear right away, wait and destroy a few more enemies, or wait for a target enemey to appear, then go get it. You must complete the level now to leave with the crest. 

Crest 6: 
In stage 7, you must have Flawed and Hatred equipped to get the last fragment. Fight through the level until you're almost at the end. Quite a ways through the level, you will encounter a fork in the road that points to the the left. Check your map if you're not sure. Hint: The fork is past the 3 circular rooms. Use Flawed to double jump up onto the cliff and then use Hatred to knock down the door blocking the way. Defeat a few enemies and the crest is yours. 

Crest 7: 
In level 10, approximately 3/4 of the way through the level, you will see a small out cropping on the map. If you're near it, you'll see a bridge, and you'll see an alleyway below you. Jump into the alley and look right. You'll see a small balcony with nothing on it. Jump up to the balcony and 10 guards will appear. Summon a legion and take them all out. They are so closed together that attacking them constantly will never give them a chance to attack. Once finished, the Crest Frag will appear.

Crest 8: 
You must revisit Stage 8 once you've beaten Stage 12, and recieved Another World. When you do this, the stage willl have all sorts of different enemies. Play through the game until you get the last area with the three gates. You must clear both the left and right gates in order to unlock the middle gate to go to the boss. Instead of going to the boss, kill the single enemy that is waiting for you to unlock all the doors in the level. Now, run back through the level until you encounter a group of enemies guarding a locked gate. Kill the enemies to unlock the gate and grab the crest. You must now defeat the boss in order to leave with the crest piece. 

Crest 9: 
Once you beat stage 12, go back to Stage 11. Fight all the way to Delacroix's room. Though Delacroix won't be there, a slew of enemies will. Prepare to fight about 5 or 6 different waves of enemies in order to get the last piece of fragment. The waves of enemies increase with difficulty each time, so battle wisely. Once all of the enemies are gone, the last piece will appear in the centre of the arena. Grab it to end the level. 

***You now have all 9 pieces. It may seem like a lot of work, but trust me, once Thanatos is leveled up to Perfect, or even Adult form, with high strength, nothing can stop him. He is truly the Ultimate legion.***

Check my Legion FAQ to learn how to use Thanatos, and some good Legion combos that are good for him. Also check out my Boss FAQ, if you are having any trouble at all when defeating the bosses.

II: Spiritual Gems Locations

These are the locations of all seven Spiritual Gems. There is a gem for each individual Legion in your arsenal, and the gems raise the potential levels of the Force, Assist, and Enchant to level 4, and the potential Attack and Defense levels, to level 10.

Spiritual Gem #1:
Stage 2: Defeat Lognagaiser **Side B

Spiritual Gem #2:
Stage 4: Defeat the 6 Zagan's **Side B

Spiritual Gem #3:
Stage 5: Defeat Gil Maponos **Side B

Spiritual Gem #4:
Stage 7: Defeat Volvor **Side A

Spiritual Gem #5:
Stage 8: Defeat Gil Balor **Side A

Spiritual Gem #6:
Stage 10: Defeat Gil Volvor **Side A

Spiritual Gem #7:
Stage 12: Defeat Rudo Lognagaiser **Side A

Note: The Spiritual Gems look just like the Thanatos Crest fragments and shouldn't be confused with them. No the game isn't screwing up, its just your eyes deceiving you. The Spiritual Gems have a dull glare to them, while the Thanatos crest fragments look finely polished and very metallic look.

Hints and Tips:
-You should always put the spiritual gems on your legions in a use-descending order. Don't automatically put it on a legion you don't use. I put the first SG's on Claw and Guilt. 
-Spiritual Gems aren't doing any good in your inventory, so use them as soon as you get them.
-If you've already put SG's on your best legions and are having trouble deciding who to put it on, take into consideration the experience needed to level up. If you use it on Guilt, it will take less experience to level them up to level 4 than other legions later on like Hatred and Thanatos.

III: Experience Gem (XL) Locations

The XL Gems are the best prize besides a Thanatos fragment. The XL Gems will give any one Legion 5 000 000 experience to use for leveling up. These items are definately worth saving for leveling up Thanatos when you collect all 9 of the crest fragments. (See section I). This section will tell you when and where you can find all of the XL expereince gems.

Gem #1: 
Stage 3: Defeat Zagan

Gem #2: 
Stage 13: Defeat the boss enemies to make it appear. (Both Side A and B)

Gem #3: 
Stage 7: Defeat Volvor to make it appear. (not 100% sure about this one)

Gem #4: 
Stage 8: Defeat Gil Balor, it will be at the other end of the tunnel.

Gem #5: 
Stage 10: Defeat Gil Volvor to make the item appear.

Gem #6: 
Stage 12: Defeat Rudo Lognagaiser to make one appear. 

All of the (XL) Gems are found during the Side B missions. So don't waste your time looking for them before you finish Stage 12, they won't appear since there isn't a need for them yet. I repeat: ALL (XL) GEMS ARE IN SIDE B.

If you think any of these are incorrect, or there are any missing that I haven't found, please email me, and I will make any appropriate changes, but I believe these are the only ones to be found in the game, (from my own experiences). 

As I mentioned earlier, its better to save these Exp Gems for Thanatos, since he takes so much experience to level up. It takes 20 million exp. to evolve to Juvenile form, 30 million for the Adult, and 50 million for Perfect. Even though you won't have enough of these gems to fully evolve Thanatos, you will have a massive head start, and be able to take on the final bosses a lot quicker.

IV: *Side A* VS *Side B* Rewards

Once you complete Stage 12, you will be shown a screen with a picture of Delacroix and some monsters in the foreground. It will then explain that you have unlocked Another World. Upon doing so, you have unlocked more and harder monsters in the stages you have already completed. This can come as a blessing since the more powerful monsters reward more experience, and in the end will reap a higher ranking bonus for aquiring much more soul, and smashing more enemies. 

Prologue:
Reward: Guilt Legion

Stage 2:
Reward Side A: Malice Legion
Reward Side B: Spiritual Gem

Stage 3: 
Reward Side A: Blasphemy Legion
Reward Side B: Exp. Gem (XL)

Stage 4: 
Reward Side A: Arrogance Legion
Reward Side B: Spiritual Gem

Stage 5: 
Reward Side A: Flawed Legion
Reward Side B: Spiritual Gem

Stage 6:
Reward Side A: Hatred Legion
Reward Side B: Exp. Gem (L)

Stage 7: 
Reward Side A: Spiritual Gem
Reward Side B: Exp. Gem (XL)

Stage 8: 
Reward Side A: Spiritual Gem
Reward Side B: Exp. Gem (XL)

Stage 9: 
Reward Side A: Map Selector
Reward Side B: 

Stage 10: 
Reward Side A: Spiritual Gem
Reward Side B: Exp. Gem (XL)

Stage 11: 
Reward Side A: None
Reward Side B: Thanatos Crest Fragment

Stage 12: 
Reward Side A: Spiritual Gem
Reward Side B: Exp. Gem (XL)

Stage 13: 
Reward Side A: Exp. Gem (XL)
Reward Side B: Exp. Gem (XL)

Stage 14:
Reward Side A: N/A
Reward Side B: N/A

This is just a checklist you can use to track down what items you have or haven't collected from either Side A or Side B.

Have I Been fooled? Feel free to email me if you see a mix up in the information given. No one is perfect and I may have copied some info incorrectly from the game, so do not hesitate to make me aware.

I hope this helps in your quest to become the ultimate Legionator. 
This is the probably the final version of this FAQ, but that does not mean it cannot be updated. If I can find the time, I will add a full inventory item checklist in a fifth section. But this infomation should suffice until then. Thank you for taking the time to read my FAQ, and I hope it helps you in your journey through Chaos Legion. 

Good Luck!
