O==============================================================================O

o---------------o
| Battle System |------------------------------------------------------(Gmcha)-o
o---------------o

The battle system in Star Ocean 3 is very unique.  Battles occur in real time, 
not turn based so there's always something going on.  In order to initiate a 
battle either:

- It occurs automatically during a scene
- You come into contact with an enemy on a map

When in battle you can do numerous things, you can attack with x and circle 
which will cause you to automatically run up and swing at the enemy you are 
targeting.  You can also press triangle to bring up the menu where you can cast
magic, use items,change equipment, change your tactics, use tactical skills or 
run away.  

You can also cycle quickly between your other party members with L1 and R1.  It 
is possible to have up to three people in battle at once.


o---------------------o
| Strong/Weak Attacks |------------------------------------------------(Gmchb)-o
o---------------------o

As mentioned before you can attack with both the x and circle button.  X will 
initiate a quick attack which can be blocked by the enemy, circle will initiate 
a slower attack that cannot be blocked by the enemy, and will break his shield 
in the event that he is blocking.


o--------------------------o
| Short/Long Range Attacks |-------------------------------------------(Gmchc)-o
o--------------------------o

Another difference between attacks is the range.  At the top left of the battle 
screen it will tell you if you're in short or long range mode, which is 
determined by how close you are to your target enemy.  Depending on the range 
you will do different attacks, there are four basic attacks:

X button short range
X button long range
O button short range
O button long range


o------------o
| Fury Gauge |---------------------------------------------------------(Gmchd)-o
o------------o

The fury gauge is a limiter as well as a helper.  Everything you do in this 
game consumes a bit of fury, whether it's running or attacking.  When your fury 
reaches 0% you cannot attack and must wait for it to charge (which is does in 
about 1 second.)  Enemies also have a fury meter which you can see in all 
difficulties except Fourth Dimension.  When your fury meter is at 100% you will 
be shielded and cannot be hurt by weak attacks.  Also fury is responsible for 
keeping you alive at 1 Hp when you would have otherwise died.


o---------------o
| Battle Skills |------------------------------------------------------(Gmche)-o
o---------------o

Up to four battle skills can be set up per character:

X button short range
X button long range
O button short range
O button long range

Just like the attacks, except skills are activated when you hold down the button
rather than tap it.  Each battle skill you equip takes up a certain amount of Cp
of which you will steadily increase until you reach your max of 15.  You cannot 
equip skills that will raise your cp above that number.

You also have skills called support skills which can be equipped below the 
battle skills, these too cost cp but are always active and do not need to be 
used manually.


o---------------o
| Status Skills |------------------------------------------------------(Gmchf)-o
o---------------o

There are four status skills in this game:

Hp
Mp
Attack
Defense

Every time you level up you will get a number of skill points that can be 
distributed to increase each of these factors.


o-------------------------------------o
| Anti-Attack Auras (Tactical Skills) |--------------------------------(Gmchg)-o
o-------------------------------------o

Anti-Attack Auras are what surround you when you have 100% fury and counter all 
weak attacks.  You can set up other types of anti-attack auras in the tactical 
skills menu when you find more textbooks, just by having the books in your 
inventory will allow you to use the new skills.  You start off stunning the 
enemy when you get attacked with the AAA up, but there are many others that can 
deal damage, or heal etc.


o--------------o
| Cancel Bonus |-------------------------------------------------------(Gmchh)-o
o--------------o

Cancel bonus occurs when you go directly form an attack to a battle skill, or a 
battle skill to another battle skill.  Say you attack with x, then hold x and 
immediately use Blade of Fury, it will say 'Cancel Bonus 175%' meaning your 
Blade of Fury did 175% normal damage, and will increase if you go from skill to 
skill.  It increases in the following manner:

100% (Normal attacks)
175%
200%
250%
300%

It remains at 300% for all other skills you chain after that.


o-----------o
| Symbology |----------------------------------------------------------(Gmchi)-o
o-----------o

Symbology is just a fancy word for magic.  Magic is cast in real time and 
resolves while you continue to fight.  Some non-primary magic users get spells 
as well but in order to use them in battle, the skills "Common Attack Symbols" 
or "Common Support Symbols" must be equipped.


o---------------o
| Bonus Battles |------------------------------------------------------(Gmchj)-o
o---------------o

Bonus battles occur when you fill the bonus gauge.  It increases automatically 
as you fight enemies.  You can get the following bonuses from it:

Double Fol
Triple Exp
Increased chance for item
Increased recovery rate upon win

You get each of those respectively if that attack that fills the gauge is a 
strong attack, weak attack, Symbology spell or battle skill.  Another one will 
be added at random every five battles.  The chain will be broken if you are hit 
with a critical hit, die, or run away.


o------------------------o
| Ring of Disintegration |---------------------------------------------(Gmchk)-o
o------------------------o

You receive the Ring of Disintegration in the Urssa Lava Caves near the end of 
disc 1.  It is capable of removing debris and broken walls from your path 
leading to treasure chests and unexplored areas of the map.  Press square to 
turn it on, then circle to use it when you see a green wireframe box around 
something.  Some maps cannot be 100% explored without this item.


o-----------------o
| Private Actions |----------------------------------------------------(Gmchl)-o
o-----------------o

Private Actions, a classic element of Star Ocean are back but work differently 
now.  Instead of activating them manually when you reach a town, your party 
automatically splits up.  You can interact with them in the towns, or sometimes 
with other people.  There is no real 'indicator' of whether you are 
participating in a private action or not, but if you're speaking to someone in 
your party and you have to choose between two or more responses, that virtually 
always indicates a private action which will change the emotion level with your 
party and affect the ending you get.

Go out the door and watch the scene.  Afterwards your first real battle will 
occur.  Fayt is equipped with a handsome metal pipe for this fight, it isn't 
nearly as hard as the ones in the battle simulation, you should be starting to 
get used to the battle system now this fight is rather easy no matter how 
experienced you are.  Use a lot of stronger circle button attacks, as they will 
automatically break the enemies' shield.

Another scene follows the battle.  Again, similar battles but with three party 
members now.  More events follow.

After the short introduction, enter the room on your left.  Meet up with Peppita
in room 509 located at the bottom right (Private Action.)

* When you exit, go up to the right at the little alcove there is a scene with 
Peppita. If you cannot see it right away, try entering the transporter room to 
the left of the stairs, then coming back out.  It should activate.  (Private 
Action)

Fayt's room is room 506, just a few doors left.  Watch the scene when you enter.
There is a save point you can use at the top of the room.  Now get some rest in 
your bed (the ones right below Sophia.)  

The transporter that brought you to this facility is now configured to take you 
to the Transport Ship Herle.

Leave the room and watch a quick scene.  Go North along the hallway into the 
next area, and an event will occur.  When you have control again, you can access
a save point (the green icon on your map.)  Now leave the room.  Head down the 
hall and enter the door along the way, shown as a yellow triangle on your map, 
when you try and go up the stairs a conversation will trigger.  Afterwards leave
the room.

Go up North again and speak with everyone in this room, then return to the 
hallway and speak with everyone in the hallway.  Heading North again should 
trigger a scene.

Leave and speak with the people in the hallway again, go to the room where the 
angry man was and the stairs up are now open. Go upstairs, at the Southern part
of the hallway is the people waiting to be evacuated, speak with the attendants 
then return to the stairs.

* You can go back down and speak with Peppita's group (Private Action.)

Go back to the people waiting around the escape exit and it should be open now.

* Before going in if you head up the hallway and into the door on the left, 
above the one that leads to the stairs it will take you to the bridge.  Speak 
with the person sitting second to the left of all the people to have him ask 
your blood type.  (Private Action)  Once of these people mentions Expel, 
something familiar to those who have played Star Ocean 2.

Finally exit to the now unblocked escape pods.  Any one will do.

Some events will occur here. Choose whether to read the Underdeveloped Planet 
Preservation Pact or not.  (Private Action)

| I - iv - Pesotto Forest |--------------------------------------------(Iivde)-o

Map Completion: 1/144 Scale Bunny

Items: Simple Sword

Enemies: Young Slime, Nobleman

Upon entering the forest, after the scene you will receive a Simple Sword.  You 
will now be introduced to one of the interesting features of Star Ocean 3, map 
completion.  There is a little percentage indicator below your map which tells 
you how much of an area you have explored.  This can be very tedious as you must
virtually run along the edge of every wall to be sure to get those last few 
fractions of a percent, but the reward is well worth it.  The 1/144 Bunny 
increases the movement speed of all your party in battle by 5%, or if that 
doesn't sound good enough it can be sold for a whopping 9000 Fol!  Certain maps 
cannot be completed until later in the game when you have a special item, 
however the forest can be.  Near the end you will find some people you cannot 
get past, you will be able to very soon but until then don't bother trying to 
complete the map.

You will also be introduced to normal battles here.  Battles are fought when 
contact is made with an enemy on the map, they are not random.  It is easy to 
avoid these particular enemies which is very helpful especially when you're 
trying to complete the map.  However battles in this game are extremely fun and 
despite the pitiful experience earned here you'll probably just want to fight 
for practice anyway.

The forest is very easy to navigate however if you still wish to know directions
to the exit, take the left fork from the save point and follow it, going left at
any forks you come to, you will quickly find yourself on the next map.  From 
here keep to the left again and follow the path avoiding any forks either left 
or right and in no time you'll reach the exit.

I was able to get a total of 98.29% completion before accessing the area where 
people are standing so if you can achieve about this much, you will likely be 
able to quickly complete it immediately after you get access to that area.

A scene occurs as you enter the village.  Afterwards leave the house.

The following lists the location of all the treasures in the village, skip the 
next paragraph if you have no interest.

Open your large map right when you leave the house and press start to centre 
your camera.  Go up the large stone stairs and enter the first house to come to,
just above you.  This is the elder's house, get the chest on the right side 
containing Blackberries.  Leave then enter the private house shown as a yellow 
triangle, just to the left of the purple triangle. There is a chest inside 
containing Blueberries.  Now leave, in between this house and the private home 
on your left is a chest behind a tree containing 600 Fol.  Continue West past 
the private house near the exit of the village to find a chest behind a large 
rock, open it to receive Aquaberries.  Finally go all the way East, between the 
stone stairs and the elder is a chest with Blackberries in it.

You can explore the village, on your map a purple triangle denotes an inn or 
place where you can be healed, a green triangle represents a shop.  I would 
recommend picking up a Ring Mail for Fayt, easy to afford if you found the 
chest with 600 Fol.

Enter the private house on the further West side of the village for a scene 
involving a girl with a broom.  Next go to the East side of the village and 
enter the elder's house.  Speak with him inside.  You can also save your game 
here.  Return to Niklas' house afterwards.  A scene will occur when you enter.

Once you have your sword back, take the West exit out of the village.

     (2)

Enemies: Buster, Nobleman, Makafy, Shrieker, Tepeki, Thieving Scumbag, Young 
     Shrieker

Begin by noting you cannot complete this map until much later in the game.

Begin by heading left and getting the two chests, both contain Blueberries.  On 
the opposite side hidden by a crumbling wall is a chest with Cooking Ingredients
at the Northeastern corner be sure to get the chest, inside are Blackberries.  
Take the North exit.  Along the left branching path is a chest at the end 
containing 200 Fol.  Return back down again to the first area.  Take the East 
exit.

You will find a chest blocked by some rubble here, however it is innaccessable 
at this point in the game so go North up the stairs.  Continue up into some more
broken ruins, there are two chests here that contain Blackberries and 
Aquaberries.  Go around into the left part of the ruins (both arch openings are 
guarded by Thieving Scumbags) and get the treasure for more Aquaberries.  Take 
the Northwest exit out of this area.

Go left a bit and into the arch above you, right when you go through, on your 
right are two chests which hold Aquaberries and Blueberries.  Go up until you 
reach a fork above the river, go left and find the chest in the ruins and get 
the Cooking Ingredients.  Go North to the next map.

Past the two mushrooms at the end, behind the tree is a chest containing a Fresh
Sage.  Now return to where you took a left, at the fork above the river.  Go 
right and take the East exit.  Proceed up a couple of maps until you reach a 
large door.  Go around the back via the left side and you'll reach a dead end 
with a chest containing Blackberries.  Go around the back via the right side and
you'll trigger an event.

Follow the path into the first open room.  On your right is a chest containing a
Jewel of Refuge.  On your left is another with a Fresh Sage.  Leave the room 
North and take a right at the fork.

A quick scene occurs in this room.  Save your game at the save point.  Examine 
the terminal at the upper left.  If you followed the large graffiti numbers in 
the ruins you have the information you need to do this, if you didn't you can go
back out and read them.  If you simply wish to know the password and move on 
read below.

The password is '256.'

Save your game and return to the fork, take the Northwest path into the room.  
Watch the scene that occurs here.

Boss:

Drop: Decrepit Tome (100%)               

There are three Battle Trophies you can collect from this boss, defeat him 
within 30 seconds, defeat him with no damage and defeat him with only the Metal 
Pipe.

***
Boss Strategy:

With Cliff on your team Norton is a pushover, almost regardless of level with 
Cliff you probably won't even need to heal.  Just avoid his gunfire as best you 
can and keep hitting him with your strongest attacks, Blade of Fury works great.
***

Defeat Norton within 30 seconds:

Use Blade of Fury over and over again, he doesn't have a particularly high 
amount of Hp so if you can keep the damage at a fast but steady pace this really
isn't one of the harder ones to get, you can even spend a good portion of the 
battle knocked down from his attacks and still end up with him dead before the 
30 seconds are up.  Remember his big spiel as he's dying does not count towards 
the time.

Another even easier way to do it is to just switch to Cliff and keep tapping X, 
he hits very fast over and over again, you'll run out of fury quick, but just 
allow it to recover.
***

Defeat Norton without taking damage:

Very easy, remember it only applies to the character you are controlling so 
simply run to the bottom of the screen and let Cliff waste the guy.  Cliff is 
strong enough to take on this battle by himself, however to do this you will 
likely need at least 2-3 Blueberries.  If Norton gets too close simply run to 
the other end of the screen.
***

Defeat Norton using only Metal Pipe:

Cannot be done at this point in the game, do not try.
***

Another scene follows the battle.  Return to the save point room and retrieve 
the Music Box Parts.  Save your game, exit the hideout, watch a scene, exit the 
ruins and return to Whipple.

Items: Worm-Eaten Tome, Ring Mail, Blueberries (2), Warrior's Bracelet, Fresh
     Sage

Enemies: Bogle Leader, Bogle Soldier, Skeleton Soldier, Slime, Toad Beast, Water
     Reaper

Start by pressing start to centre your map.  To the right of the save point is a
healing pad, save your game and head East.  Head down, but before going in the 
room get the chest on the right for a Worm-Eaten Tome.  Now go South.  At the 
Southwest corner of this area is a ladder you can climb down, simply run towards
it until you grab on.  Follow the thin path under the waterfall to find a Ring 
Mail and Blueberries.

Go back up the ladder and take the South exit out of this room, you'll find 
yourself on a ledge with a chest containing a Warrior's Bracelet.  Go back up 
and exit East.  Go up the steps and into the next room, from here exit South, 
then East and North to find a chest with a Fresh Sage. Go back to the large room
right after the bridge (South, West, North from the chest) and exit at the upper
right.  Exit this room to the upper left for a quick scene, you'll find yourself
at the top of some slippery ice.  Slide down the ice, if you need to get back up
simply hold circle to walk.

Slide down the first patch of ice, before sliding down the second enter the room
at the corner and get the chest with Blueberries in it.  Exit and slide down the
second patch.  Prepare your party and save your game.  Enter the next room for a
quick event.

Boss:

Name: Giant Crab                         Weak: Fire

Exp: 55
Fol: 135
Drop: N/A                                

***
Boss Strategies:

This boss' attacks are rather easy to predict and block.  Only his huge claw 
swing can break your guard and he takes forever to charge it up giving you 
chance to avoid.  Use this to your advantage and keep your fury meter high.  
When he attacks, you will stun him then you'll have a chance to go in with a 
powerful attack.  Nel will likely keep on top of healing, and Cliff will keep 
the damage rolling.
***

Defeat Giant Crab within 1 minute:

I had an extremely hard time with this, I may have been underlevelled I don't 
know.  If you have Blazing Sword for Fayt, you should be able to do this no 
problem since he's weak to fire, however I did not so here's what I did to beat 
him (mind you it took over 15 tries for me.)

Remove Cliff and Nel from your party and equip the Aerial skill on Fayt.  You 
need to practice against him a bit and learn all his attacks, what you're trying
to do is stand right in front of him with your fury meter at 100%, wait until he
attacks.  If he goes purple and charges, run behind him quickly and use Aerial, 
it should deal 5-6 Mp damage.  If he does any other attack you will 
automatically block it and stun him, now quickly use Aerial to deal 10-12 Mp 
damage.  (Those numbers will be even higher if you have the Warrior's Bracelet.)
He only has 80 Mp so as you can see if you can get a system going it is possible
to kill him in less than one minute.  Sometimes when you hit him while stunned 
he will immediately knock you down after, there's little I know of to prevent 
him from doing this, sometimes he gets knocked down sometimes he counterattacks.
Keep trying hoping he more often does the former than the latter.
***

Defeat Giant Crab without taking damage:

Like I said his attacks are easy to predict and block/dodge but if you don't 
want to risk it, just once again stay out of the way and keep Cliff and Nel 
healed.  The battle will take longer and tax your items but it's not 
particularly hard to do.
***

Go back and save your game.  Now in the room where you defeated the crab when 
you approach the ice be sure to hold circle and walk over it, not run.  If you 
run it will collapse hurting you and sending you back to the start of the room.
Exit to the East and watch the scene.

There's a lot of equipment here that you just can't afford.  Too bad.  If you 
wish to collect all the treasure though, read the following paragraph.

Open your large map and centre your camera.  Run along the path from the 
Airyglyph Aqueducts until you come to two homes across the street from each 
other, enter the private house on the right and get the chest in the back 
containing Blueberries.  Leave the house.  Directly South from the front door is
a chest you can't see, rotate the camera if you need to but be sure to always 
centre it again to understand the directions.  You'll find Blackberries.  Now 
enter the building across the street (the tavern.)  Go upstairs and run to the 
South to find a chest containing 2000 Fol.  Go down a bit and take the West fork
and enter the abandoned temple.  Inside you'll find a chest with Perfect 
Berries.  Exit the temple, on the left side of the door is a chest containing 
Cooking Ingredients.  Now run back to the East, following the path East at the 
4-way split.  Enter the private home at the end and get the chest inside with 
Blackberries.  Return to the 4-way split and go South until you reach the area 
with all the shops.  Enter the shop to your left and up (the Tiamat) and get the
two chests in here containing Blueberries and Blackberries.  Exit then go left 
and up again into the private home here to find a chest with Ripe Berries.  
South of this home is a small alley between two shops leading to a hidden chest 
containing Perfect Berries.  Now go to the Inn (the purple triangle on your map)
and get the chest containing Cooking Ingredients, then save your game.  Exit the
inn and go South, when you reach a split go East through the tiny alley, then 
down to the fence, there is a chest hidden here containing Compounding Elixirs. 
Return through the alley West, ignoring the first path down, take the second 
path down and into the private home on the right.  Get the chest here for some 
Aquaberries, exit and just to your left is a chest containing Blueberries.  Go 
down the path to the Southwest, right at the end to the left of the workshop is 
a chest with Ripe Berries inside, to the right of the workshop down the stairs 
are some more Ripe Berries.  Go back Northeast to the three way split and take 
the South East path this time.  Between two houses at the bottom of this path, 
and the Southern part of town is the final chest, containing Cooking 
Ingredients.  Phew.

There's nothing to do here other than collect the treasure really so head to the
inn, rest up, save your game and take the East exit out of town.

Run along the bridge and watch the scene.

Rotate your camera, along the way up the mountain is a split path with a 
crevasse one the right, and a big drop on the left.  Across the crevasse is a 
chest containing a Jewel of Alertness, locate this point.  From here proceed up 
the mountain, you'll see a silver jelly enemy.  Just before the Jelly if you 
rotate your map to face Northeast you should see a chest containing Ripe 
Berries.  Just past the Jelly to the west is a rock on the Southern ledge, 
beside it is a chest containing 400 Fol.  Continue West past the Bogle enemy to 
find a chest with Blueberries inside.  Beside the second Bogle enemy further 
West hidden among some trees is another chest with Blackberries inside.

Now run all the way East to the exit of the Traum Mountains after a couple of 
events.

Read the following paragraph if you wish to collect the treasure.

Centre your camera and open the large map.  Run North and find the soldier who 
won't let you pass.  On your left is a chest containing Perfect Berries.  Head 
to the Southwest corner of town but don't go down the stairs, beside some boxes 
at the top is a chest with Aquaberries inside.  From here go right and head in 
down and right at the split.  Go up the small stairs and keep heading East but 
stop before reaching the first road up.  If you look above you underneath the 
little overpass with the red railings there is a chest hidden under it.  Just 
before the arch on your left is a small set of stairs heading down in the North 
direction, take them and it will lead you to the chest containing Perfect 
Berries.  Go back up the steps and keep heading East, down the next stairs right
above you are two chests containing 520 Fol and Blueberries.  Continue a bit 
East and go up the ramp, at the 4-way split where the ramp flattens out take a 
right and you'll find a chest containing Blackberries hidden among the bushes to
the right of the house.  Now go inside the house beside where you found this 
chest, there is a large treasure box in here containing 1400 Fol.  Exit the 
house and go a few steps North, then take the East alley, there is a little 
alcove above you that is visible on your map along this alley, in it a chest 
containing Ripe Berries.  Head West out of the alley and at the 4-way split go 
into the house a few steps to your left (not the shop, slightly above that.)  In
here is a treasure chest with Blueberries inside.

Upgrade your equipment in the shops of this town, you can fund your purchases 
with the money in the chests listed above.

When you're ready to proceed head to the Southwest corner of town and speak with
the Sermonic Old Man.  Afterwards head to the cemetery which is just North of 
the in, up a small set of stairs and to the right.  Watch the scene here.

In the morning head back North to where the soldier wouldn't let you pass, now 
go through.  Across the bridge on your left is a chest containing Compounding 
Elixirs.  Continue North into the cave.

Take the East exit front the front room.  Follow the path to a large open room.
Go along the tracks and head South when they curve North.  In this room go down 
to the bottom and open the chest containing Scale Armor.  Proceed back up and

There are no Battle Trophies for this boss.

***
Boss Strategies:

If you hear him scream "Earth Glaive" in his big rock monster voice, be sure to 
run around behind him.  Unfortunately your party is a little too stupid to 
follow so you'll probably need a good bit of items for this fight.  It's 
extremely easy to level up outside considering the healing pad so if you have 
any problems, you know what to do.  Keep and eye on his Fury gauge and be sure 
to use only strong attacks when it looks full.  He only has 163 Mp so you may 
want to think about a quick Mp kill here.
***

After the fight watch the scene.  Above you on the platform there is a lever to 
pull, do so.  Exit to the West.  West of where you come out the door is a chest 
containing Blackberries.  Exit South and then East and you'll find yourself in 
the front room again.  Return to the save point and heal pad to save your game.

Back where you entered the large room are five buttons, these buttons correspond
to five Haulers one of the most annoying mini-things you'll ever do.  I'll try 
my best to get you through it.

There are five types of Haulers:

- Steady
- Carefree
- Whimsical
- Ill-Natured
- Aggressive

To get all that way through you will only need steady, to get all the treasures 
you will only need aggressive and steady.  The first method here will entail 
getting all the treasures, to get a quick escape scroll down to the three 
asterisk marker (***).

Hold up to go faster, down to go slower.

Choose the Aggressive Hauler first.  

Stay at the lowest speed at the way around (about 30 km/h), ignore the first 
left-right switch, at the second press left and you should break through a wall 
then quickly take another left to break through a second wall.  If this takes 
more than one try it's ok.

If you can bear it, try and stay around 20 km/h or so for most of the next part.

Now choose the Steady Hauler.  Around the first large bend as you probably 
noticed is an option to stop if you're going slower than 15 km/h, so stop there.
Run to the end of this path, ignore the blocked chest and get the one containing
Blackberries.  Return to the Hauler.  Take a right at the split, soon after will
be another place to stop.  On foot take a left at the fork and get the Charm of
Insight.  Return to the Hauler.  Take the first left and stop right after.  Get 
the Ripe Berries in this cove and continue on.  Return to the main room.

Take Steady again and go ALL the way around to the last place you stopped, but 
don't stop this time, instead keep going and if you don't stop you should get a 
turning option, make a left and stop here.  In this area you can find a large 
chest containing 5000 Fol, now leave and return to the start.

Take the Aggressive Hauler again.  Stay at the slowest speed it will go, when 
you reach the first split keep going right (you don't have a choice.)  At the 
next split press right, then two more come up quickly.  Go left and a quick left
again to break through another wall and return to the station.

Choose Steady again.  Make a right at the first split, and another right at the 
second split, then make a third right and stop.  Get the Falchion in this room 
and return.  Leaving this area will send you around the circle again.  Make a 
right at the first split like always, then another right at the next one.  
Quickly make a left then another left to bring you to the area you last broke 
down, then stop and get the Fresh Sage.

There's another long arduous trip to make for some 15 Fol Aquaberries, it's 
really really not worth doing.  Explore for yourself if it somehow matters.

The following are the instructions for getting out of the cave.

***

Take the Steady Hauler.  Go along the tracks staying at a speed of about 25 km/h
until you reach a point where you will be prompted to turn.  Slow to below 25 
km/h and make a left.  On the next chance stay right, then around the corner 
make a left.  Stay very slow to avoid the rocks that come down, then make 
another left slowing down enough to avoid the rocks.  Now speed up to about 25 
to go through these gates, but not too fast otherwise you won't be able to turn 
afterward, make a left when you get through the last barrier.  From here stay at
a steady pace and you're home free.  Good luck.

Speak with the soldier at the end.

Save your game right at the beginning.  Go up the mountain until you reach a 
fork in the road, take a left.  At the end of this path is a chest containing 
Blackberries.  Go back and make a right, soon you'll come to another path 
leading South, take it down the hill and get the Ripe Berries at the bottom.  Go
back up and head straight North, keep going North until you find a chest on a 
little wooden ledge, open it to receive Crafting Materials.  Go back down and 
take the East path towards the large gate.  When you reach it head North. 

It looks like this is a dead end but there is a path leading through the fence.
Keep going up and you'll find three chests here containing Aquaberries, 
Compounding Elixirs and Writing Materials.  Go back down and this time proceed 
South from the gate, watch the event at the bottom.

***
Boss Strategy:

To defeat Shelby start out avoiding him focusing your attacks on the soldiers.  
Eliminate them as fast as possible.  After start using your most powerful 
attacks and battle skills to knock down his health, for a boss he doesn't have 
too much Hp at all so you'll be surprised how quickly he falls, which helps for 
the second Battle Trophy.
***

Defeat Shelby within 1 Minute:

Equip your most powerful strength raising accessories on Cliff and set his as 
your control character.  The trick here is to focus on quick X attacks and lots 
of them, don't even use Battle Skills.  Note that Shelby is virtually impossible
to Mp kill so Cliff is definitely your man, all you have to do is hope that Fayt
and Nel get the picture and help you out since there are a fair bit of enemies 
besides Shelby.
***

Defeat Shelby without taking damage:

Cliff and Nel should be strong enough to take on this battle without any help, 
but they may not.  If you're brave enough try luring one of the soldiers away, 
or hitting him while he's focusing on someone else.  Remember one slip up and 
you have to start over so play 99% defensively.
***

Watch the scene following the battle.  Exit the training facility and run all 
the way back to Arias.

a crack in the ground is a chest containing a Jewel of Refuge.  Go back to where
you found the bust and head North, you'll be able to see a treasure box behind a
rock ledge, but you'll have to go around to the left to get it.  It contains 
Aquaberries.

with Blackberries in it.  Now go to the East side of town.  On the right of the 
tavern open the chest to find 3400 Fol.  Go West a bit then South down the 
street, between two of the houses on the right is a chest containing 
Blueberries, then further South to the left of the well is another with 
Aquaberries.  Now enter the lower of the two houses on the right, behind the 
door you'll find Ripe Berries, in the upper house below the door is a treasure 
box containing Blackberries.

When you're ready to continue, head to the central square and approach the 
Southwest temple and choose to rest.  Watch the next scene.

Afterwards head West and into the inn.  Speak with the woman at the desk on the 
left and watch the next event.  After leave the inn and head to the East side of
town, go down the road South to trigger a scene.  After return to the inn and

- Gushing
- Glittering
- Boiling

It will tell you what the spring is currently like when you examine it, you want
water from the Glittering spring so if it isn't glittering keep leaving the area
and coming back until it is.  Get the water and return to the fairy for a scene.

Now return to the area one map left of the forest entrance.  Head South and get 
the two chests here containing Aquaberries and Blackberries.  Examine the tree 
at the bottom to trigger a battle.

Miniboss:

Drop: Jewel of Refuge (4%)               
      Sage (3%)

Easy fight, watch out for his swinging limbs but he's nowhere near as hard as a 
normal boss, especially with only one of him.

Continue South to the next map.  Follow the path around until you can go up.  On
the next map get the Blueberries on the right, and take a left at the fork and 
fight another Grapebind.  Go South to find a chest containing Compounding 
Elixirs.  Go back up and head North at the fork this time.  Proceed West at the 
next branch in the path, then West again.

Go North in this area, until you find another Grapebind.  Continue North, hug 
the cliff on the left to avoid the falling boulders, being sure to quickly grab 
the chest on the right containing Perfect Berries.  Take the West exit.  Fun 
time avoid rocks here, stay close to the top and grab the two treasure chests 
which are in a safe area, they contain Blackberries and Blueberries.  Continue 
North and open these two chests to receive a Wind Pixie and an Orb of Alertness.
Return South and avoid the falling rocks again, exiting this map to the South.

Encounter another Grapebind here.  Head South, then West.  Make a mad dash down 
the middle and open the chest containing a limited edition doll.  Avoid the 
rocks and head South when you pass them.  At the bottom is another Grapebind.

Head West to the next map to trigger a scene.  After a quick battle with some 
clan members and another scene.  Here you can choose to bring Roger along with 
you, deciding on whether or not you want him in your final party choose whether
or not you want to bring him along.  It'd be a good idea to take him now, if you
take him it doesn't mean you have to keep him forever, but it's the only way to 
fight the boss just outside for the chance to get two more Battle Trophies.

Leave the house and go back East.  If you took Roger a scene will occur.

Drop: N/A                                

***
Boss Strategy:

Very very easy boss, just use Blazing Sword for Fayt and you can Mp kill this 
guy in no time, even faster if Nel has her Shadow Wave equipped.
***

Defeat Moonshadow Clan Chief within 1 minute

I'd recommend going for both these Battle Trophies at the same time, one because
it's simple, and two because it's a long journey to try again.  Use the same 
tactic as the boss strategy, with Mp kill you can have this guy dead before 30 
seconds.
***

Defeat Moonshadow Clan Chief without taking damage

This is where the defensive part comes in.  Be sure Nel has Shadow Wave equipped
but if you want both you're going to have to help a bit.  Luckily the boss only 
has weak predictable attacks, and you only need to get 2-3 weak combos in to 
take him out.
***

Afterwards regardless of whether you fought the battle or not, head North.

Head up to the falling rocks, sticking to the East.  Continue to head North and 
East wherever possible.  At the very top you should come to a part where there 
are falling rocks, run along to the East with them being careful not to be hit 
and at the end you will find four treasure chests containing Alchemy Materials, 
Crafting Materials, 12,000 Fol and Aquaberries.  Go back up and get hit by a 
boulder.

From where you appear head West, then North waiting for the holes to be filled 
so you can walk across them.  Head West at the top, then South,  Take the first 
right you come to, to find a chest with a Water Shielding, then go back and head
South to find a save point.  Save your game.  Proceed West.

When you reach this point centre your camera.  Go all the way North, if you 
accidentally take a different exit just centre your camera again and keep trying
to find the North exit.  When you do you'll come to a scene at the lake.

Boss:

Name: Mudman                             Weak: Wind
Hp: 8000                                 Half: N/A
Mp: 500                                  Immune: N/A
Level: 34                                Drain: Earth
Exp: 1200
Fol: 8
Drop: Synthesis Materials (100%)         

***
Boss Strategies:

Despite a not-too-high Mp total Mudman is an extremely easy Hp kill so go for 
that.  His attacks are slow and easily interrupted by your strong combo.  A 
continuos string of attacks with cancel bonuses is the way to play this 
fight, offensively, not defensively.
***

Defeat Mudman within 1 minute:

He's a very fast Hp kill, so use your circle button combos on him from behind 
and keep them coming fast.  I wish there was more to say, you might even find 
yourself doing it before you're even hit collecting both of them at once.
***

Defeat Mudman without taking damage:

I'll be completely honest, I forgot to check Mudman's stats before the battle so
I figured I'd just play it quick and load by game to try to get the Battle 
Trophies.  Within no time Mudman was dead and I found I had accidentally 
accumulated both of them without even trying.  There's not much to say, Cliff 
and Nel can take care of this guy in no time if you let them, and they're well 
equipped.  Steer clear of him and you're home free.
***

After the boss go South again, now the mist is gone.  Head all the way to the 
Southeast corner of this map to find a chest containing a heavy armor.  
Afterwards run back up North to the exit leading to where you fought Mudman, but
exit left instead.  Keep going West to trigger an event.

Head to the Southwestern area of town with three dots on your radar.  Here 
you'll find Roger once again.  It's a good idea to cooperate with Roger at this 
time since he has the books and all, this still isn't a permanent thing.  

To get the treasure read the following paragraph.

Enter the house to the Southwest of where Roger was to find a chest containing 
Smithy Materials.  Go back up, in the house to the left of the shop is a 
treasure box with Machinery Materials inside.  Go South from this house and into
another private home and get the Aquaberries from the chest.  Return to where 
you found Roger and enter the house at the Northwest and get the chest 
containing Blueberries.

containing a Jewel of Alertness.  From there head directly Northwest for a few 
metres and you'll find another chest containing Blackberries beside a tree.  On 
the West side, look at your map you'll notice a big long obstacle running North 
and South, this shows some raised ground.  Get on the higher right side and run 
North hugging the edge.  Along the way you'll find a piece of broken ruin with a
pillar leaning against it, it's just Southeast of the bridge.  Here is a giant 
treasure box with Magical Berries inside.

In order to get all the treasure, read the following paragraph.

Head to the central square of town with all the exits.  Take the lower right 
one.  Enter the private home two doors right or the shop.  This house contains 
two chests with Blackberries and Synthesis Materials.  Head into the private 
home South directly across the street and get the chest containing 1800 Fol.  
Exit the house and follow the street North, straight through the gate but don't 
go into the house.  Instead rotate your camera around and you'll see a treasure 
chest beside the gate, containing Compounding Elixirs.  Return to the centre of 
town.  Take the lower left exit this time.  Follow the street when it branches 
to the South.  Enter the first private home on your left to get some Compounding
Elixirs in the chest.  Go out of the door and rotate your camera to face the 
house you were just in, you'll see two chests to the right of the front door, 
open them to receive Aquaberries and Compounding Elixirs.  Now enter the second 
private home on the left of this street, inside is a chest containing Smithery 
Materials.  Go back up the street to the main path and head West.  Follow it 
until you reach a left/right fork.  On the left is a dead end with a treasure 
box and Cooking Ingredients.  Continue to head East and enter the first private 
home on the North side of the street, under the stairs is a treasure chest 
containing Aquaberries.  Continue East along the road, just before you reach the
exit back to the centre of town, above you is a little area with a couple of 
boxes, the chest under the tree contains Ripe Berries.  Don't return to the 
centre of town however go back left and bit and take the road North.  When you 
reach a fork at the wall, head left all the way until you reach a statue.  
Rotate your camera around and you'll see a large chest beside the last house on 
the street.  It contains Synthesis Materials.  Now return to the centre of town.

Head North towards the castle to initiate a scene.

When you have control in the castle, there's more treasure to collect:

From where you start head right, when the path turns North there are rooms at 
each junction.  Enter the firs room on your right to find a chest containing 
Blackberries and a place to save your game.  Cross the hall and enter the room 
on the left to find a chest containing Aquaberries.  Go North to the next 
junction and enter the room on the left, inside open the chest to receive Fire 
Shielding.  Continue North, pass the next junction, pass the path leading West 
and enter the room on the right just before the stairs.  Inside you'll find 
three chests containing Jewel of Refuge, Compounding Elixirs and Ripe Berries.  
Leave the room and go back down, take the West path just below the room you were
in, follow it into the chapel and out the West exit of the chapel.  Enter the 
room on the left below where Nel is standing and get the two chests containing 
Blackberries and a Jewel of Alertness.

Speak with Nel standing at the bottom of the stairs at the end of the West path.

On the second floor proceed South and enter the first room on the right.  In 
here there is a chest on the table containing 4700 Fol.  Go back just below the 
stairs and follow the path East.  Take the first South door at the central area 
you come by, and watch the event.

When you have control again return to the throne room.  Approach the queen and 
head East into the door at the end.  You'll be in the queen's private quarters, 
enter her bedroom to find a chest containing Magical Berries.

Head to the chapel on the first floor and speak with Cliff for a lengthy 
conversation . After speak with Nel near the entrance to the castle and return 
to your room.  Watch the event here.

In the morning take the lower path over to the West side of the first floor and 
enter the first door on the left.  Climb the ladder up in this room, when you 
reach the top, of the two doors leading North take the one on the right to 
trigger a scene.

Afterwards return to the entrance of Aquios to initiate an event with Cliff and 
Nel.  Say that you're ready.  You need to head to the Bequerel Mine, in order to
get there take the following path:

Aquios (South) -> Isiria Fields (South) -> Peterny (South) -> Palmira Plains 
(West) -> Arias (Northwest)

At the Northwest of Arias an event will trigger.  Watch the scene.

Except for the fact that they're airborne this is an easy fight, simply use your
backflip kick circle attack a lot.  They'll spend much of the battle on the 
ground but at least they won't be attacking you.

Enemies: Blood Bat, Brass Dragon (3), Feral Dragon, Harpy, Killer Treant,
     Romper Bat, War Chemeleon

When you enter the mine head North.  Watch a quick scene and follow the linear 
path North, and head North at the fork.  Near the gate light the torch.  When 
you approach the gate it will open and you'll have to fight a couple of Bras 
Dragons.  The battle is rather easy, they have the ability to paralyze your 
characters, but that will wear off in time.

After the battle you receive a Lightstone, equip it on Fayt immediately.  Head 
North through the gate, then West.  You'll have to fight three battles here, but
only one dragon in each.  After continue West, then head South.  At the bottom, 
exit West.

Light the two torches in this room.  In order to progress you must stand between
them so that you are casting two shadows in a straight line connecting them.  If
you can't get it to activate just adjust your position a little.  After it does,
the gate will open and you can continue West.  Follow the path North into the 
next room.

In this large room head left, then left again following the path straight up 
until you reach a chest containing Cooking Ingredients.  Head down a few steps 
and take the East path to the end where you will find a treasure box with 15,000
Fol inside.  From that chest head West, go South at the first fork, then East at
the next one, then East again and finally North.  The end of this path should 
have a chest containing Blackberries.  Head back down and go West at the path, 
find the Brass Dragon running around and defeat it, you will receive the Key to 
Barred Door.  Return to the fork South of the last chest you opened and follow 
the path East until you reach a gate.  Use the key to open it and enter.

In this large room go to your equip menu and take off the Lightstone, the door 
at the North will close in reaction to it.  Also turn off the candle to the left
of the door.  Now exit North.

Equip the Lightstone again and head to the Northwest in this room until you find
a door leading North.  Enter it and head North again, the door will close behind
you.  

Run to the centre of the room and step on the platform, the lights will come on.
You'll notice you have three shadows, and there are three light sources in the 
room.  The doors here will close if touched by your shadow so what you want to 
do is turn off which ever two light are opposite the door you want to enter.  
Head through the North door so examine both dragon lights that are furthest from
that door, then enter.

When you get through the door head up a little, then East at the fork, then 
South, then East, then North through the door.  At the Northeast part of this 
room are two chests containing Aquaberries and an Amulet of Freedom.  Return to 
where you came in through the large shadow room and enter the North door above 
it.  Then head North again.  A scene occurs here.

Drop: Synthesis Materials (100%)         

***
Boss Strategies:

This is an easy fight, what you want to do is activate Fayt's Blazing Sword and 
use constant x button attacks, with a good setup every swing should be dealing 
50-60 Mp per hit, and with 431 Mp you can see the end of the battle quick.  
Hopefully you have some Sage in your inventory in case anyone gets petrified.
***

Defeat Cockatrice within 1 minute:

I think I just explained this, the key here is Fayt's Blazing Sword technique.  
Throw Nel's Shadow Wave into the fray and you've got a recipe for success.
***

Defeat Cockatrice without taking damage:

This one isn't too easy to get, especially if you have no Sage.  You'll need to 
rely on good luck that your other members don't get petrified.  Watch out for 
falling rocks as well.  There's always the option of the offensive approach 
trying to help Mp kill him before getting hit, but it's dangerous.
***

Watch a quick scene afterward.  Head up to the Northeast corner to trigger 
another event.  You will receive Copper Ore.  Now exit to the West and follow 
the tracks a long way until you reach an outdoor area.

Follow the tracks some more across a small bridge until you reach a tree enemy.
From there head West to a treasure chest on a metal bridge containing 
Compounding Elixirs.  Continue West and you'll find two chests containing 23,600
Fol and Blackberries.  Just to the South behind some rubble on the left is a 
chest containing Ripe Berries.  Go East until you meet the tracks again then 
follow them South.

Here you will find some people milling around.  Exit West to find some Magical 
Berries.  Go back, and just to the left of the door you came into on the tracks 
is a chest containing Compounding Elixirs.  Just South of the door that lead out
to the Magical Berries is a chest with Synthesis Materials inside.  On the East 
side at the top is another chest containing a Worm-Eaten Tome. 

Return to the top of the tracks and save your game, be sure to do this.

Speak to the man besides the mine cart on the track to rest.  Then speak with 
the soldier to ride it to the entrance and trigger a scene.

These enemies can actually hit surprisingly hard, be sure to focus your strong 
attacks on them because they like to guard a lot.  The more you take out, the 
easier the battle gets to focus your energy on one at a time.

After the battle another scene.

Boss Strategies:

The fact that the boss is raised off the ground makes him somewhat harder, and 
the flame breath can really get frustrating.  Eliminating his two minions will 
really reduce the amount of fire being spewn over the battlefield, so do that 
first.  Once you have them out of the way focus all three members on the dragon 
keeping him juggled in the air as best you can.  Due to his high Mp total Hp 
kill is the only way to go here.

Boy is this one ever frustrating.  After numerous tries the strategy I finally 
got to work was as follows.  Set up Side Kick as the battle skill for Fayt on 
both his Short range attacks for circle and x.  Get into the battle, hold x to 
Side Kick, then quickly hold circle to cancel bonus into another quickly hold x
to cancel into another, circle etc until you run out of fury.  The damage will 
really climb with each cancel and it hits him despite being off the ground.  
Really the only good effective method for taking him out quick that I found.

Defeat Demetrio without taking damage:

This one is easy if you can avoid all the flame.  Let your party take care of 
the battle slowly but surely while you heal from afar.  If you're brave you can 
even help out with some Symbology.

After the fight be SURE to return all the way to the save point and save your 
game, there is another boss fight coming.

Heard in the direction of Aquios off the mountain path, a scene occurs right 
before you exit.

Boss Strategy:

Albel has a tendency to hit rather hard, and fairly fast.  You might need some 
of those Ripe Berries you've been picking up, up to this point.  Once you've 
eliminated the soldiers use your strongest cancel combos you have against him, 
stay on the offensive at all times.

After the battle watch the scene that follows.

another event.  Afterwards return to the inn.  Go upstairs and watch the scene.

If you head up to the throne room now you can recruit Adray into your party 
temporarily.  You'll get another chance later in the game though.

Once it ends it's time to return to Arias.

Boss Strategies:

Another boss who's raised off the ground, use some of your multi hitting battles
skills to put him in his place, again cancel-bonusing the side kick skill works 
wonders, I have done little levelling outside the main game and using the Side 
Kick combos, I was able to win without healing once.

After the battle is a rather impressive cutscene.  When you have control of Fayt
once again return across the field following the path, until you reach yet 
another scene at the other end.  And another impressive cutscene.

After the scene head over to the room on the first floor across from the 
workshop on the West side.  After the event here return to the inn and visit 
Ameena for another one.  Return to Dion in the castle for the next event.

This is a long event, followed by a cutscene, and more scenes.

Once you have control again, head to the throne room and watch the scene.

After you have control again, go to the temple on the first floor and watch the 
scene that occurs near the head.

Before going down the stairs, speak to the person near the top of the stairs.  
She will give you the Disintegration Hammer.  Go down the stairs and run to the 
end of the long hallway.

When you enter the dungeon, head North and north again.  Grab the two chests in 
this room containing Blueberries and Cooking Ingredients.  Head to the Northwest
of this room and examine the statue, flip the switch and return to the front 
hall.

Go through the North door on the right, then head North again.  The blocks here
should now be moving up and down.  Run in the direction of the blocks to go from
block to block when they come down to your level, eventually you should make it 
across to the other side.  Enter the door when you do.

Go into the first door on the left before the next moving blocks, at the end is 
a chest containing Earth Shielding.  Go back and approach the moving blocks to 
the North.  Rotate your camera to get a good view and take it slow, if you hold 
the run button constantly you're sure to get squished, wait for the next one to 
raise back up before proceeding.  Enter the door at the end.

At the East wall of this room is a large crack, press square to activate your 
Disintegration Hammer and press x to confirm.  Stay back so it doesn't crush 
you.  At the top of the stairs inside are two chests containing Blackberries and
Anointed Chain Mail.  Go down the stairs and pull the lever to the West of the 
door to open it.  Head back up the stairs, go West and then take the upper West 
exit from here.

Save your game when you enter this room.  Head to the other end then enter the 
door, go up and enter the door on the right.  Head East and in the next room 
open the chest to receive a Lunar Talisman.  Go back West into the hall with the
two mages, one of the South walls has a crack you can break through.  Go South 
and activate the switch on the statue.  Now return North, then West.  The blocks
at the bottom of this hall are now moving, return to save your game then come 
back and head through the door on the left under the blocks.  Watch the scene.

Boss Strategy:

By now if you've learned the Berserk tactical skill for Fayt and have activated 
it, you'll find doing high damage cancel combos has become a piece of cake 
because the required fury is halved.  No matter what you're using, weak attacks 
combod to Battle skills can last for big double digit hits, and up to triple 
damage.  Personally it had the flying knight dead in less than ten seconds for 
me, and it can work just as well for you.
