O==============================================================================O | ++ Game Mechanics ++ (gmMch) | 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. O==============================================================================O | ++ Starting a New Game ++ (GnWgm) | O==============================================================================O o-----------------o | Display Setting | o-----------------o 4:3 (Standard Screen) - Normal TV mode.

O==============================================================================O | ++ Full Walkthrough ++ (fKlRt) | O==============================================================================O This is a completely spoiler free walkthrough. ******************************************************************************** * Disc 1 (IIIIA) * ******************************************************************************** Before beginning be sure to have at least 1200 extra KB free on your memory card if you wish to initiate Battle Trophies later. An asterisk before a sentence or paragraph denotes a Private Action which is entirely optional, certain Private actions must be viewed as part of the story and do not have an asterisk. o-------------------------------o | I - i - Grantier Resort Hotel |--------------------------------------(Iiabc)-o o-------------------------------o Map Completion Prize: N/A Items: Rossetti Performance Ticket, Shake Enemies: The game begins with a scene introducing the characters, continue with the walkthrough when you have control of Fayt. * Enter Sophia's room right above where you start and examine the garbage can on the left side. (Private Action) Feel free to explore the hotel at your leisure, it's really quite nice. Take the transporter to the left of where you start, then head out the door and into the room at the Northeast corner. (Private Action) You can visit the beach if you wish, take one of the transporters from the Southwest room of the large central hallway. * Exit the hotel and speak with Sophia on the beach, before Fayt's parents. (Private Action) * Speak with the Flirt on the beach (Private Action) Head to the central room where the game began. Examine the spinning vendor on your left to get a Shake item. On the door to your right is a battle simulator persuade Sophia to go inside. (Private Action) Choose whether to read the manual or not. (Private Action) There are many options here, here is where you can choose to initiate the Battle Trophy data, something highly recommended if you have the space (1200 KB) on your memory card, it allows you to unlock extra bonuses through the game. Start a fight, there is a Private Action when you finish, and one after the second fight. There is also one if you lose or run away from a fight for a total of three in this section. (Private Action) Following the battle simulation an event will occur. Head out of the battle simulator and exit to the South to trigger another scene. Enter the transporter room at the lower right, and transport to the special evacuation area. 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. o------------------------------o | I - ii - Evacuation Facility |--------------------------------------(Iiibc)-o o------------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: N/A Enemies: N/A 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. o--------------------------------o | I - iii - Transport Ship Herle |-------------------------------------(Iiiic)-o o--------------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: N/A Enemies: N/A 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) o-------------------------o | I - iv - Pesotto Forest |--------------------------------------------(Iivde)-o o-------------------------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. o-------------------------o | I - v - Whipple Village |--------------------------------------------(Ivefg)-o o-------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: Blackberries (2), Blueberries, Aquaberries, 600 Fol, Simple Sword Enemies: N/A ***************************** * General Store "Manybloom" * ***************************** Blueberries.............................................................. 45 Fol Blackberries............................................................. 35 Fol Ring Mail............................................................... 180 Fol Clone Generator......................................................... 350 Fol Fresh Sage.............................................................. 310 Fol Pomello Juice....................................................... 25,000+ Fol 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. o-------------------------o | I - vi - Pesotto Forest |--------------------------------------------(Ivifg)-o o-------------------------o Map Completion: 1/144 Scale Bunny Items: N/A Enemies: Young Slime, Nobleman Navigate through the forest and return to your ship. It is still not yet possible to complete this map 100%. There will be an event when you reach your ship. Now return to Whipple. o---------------------------o | I - vii - Whipple Village |------------------------------------------(Iviig)-o o---------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: N/A Enemies: N/A When you get back to the village, enter Niklas' house for a scene. The next morning, leave the room for an event, then exit the house. Be sure you have bought everything you want, and saved your game in the elder's home. Now leave the village and go up to where the people were standing at the North part of Pesotto Forest. Now that they're gone you can head up, and also complete the Pesotto Forest map 100%. o----------------------------o | I - viii - Ruins of Coffir |-----------------------------------------(Iviii)-o o----------------------------o Map Completion: 1/60 Scale Bunny Items: Blueberries (2), Cooking Ingredients (2), Blackberries (2), Aquaberries (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.

Get them all to surround and do a double circle attack, the roundhouse kick will put them in their place. *** Enter the door right in front of you. o---------------------------o | I - ix - Norton's Hideout |------------------------------------------(Iixij)-o o---------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: Jewel of Refuge, Fresh Sage, Music Box Parts Enemies: Nobleman, Skeleton Warrior, Thieving Scumbag 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: Name: Norton Weak: N/A Hp: 1600 Half: Fire Mp: 35,800 Immune: N/A Level: 190 Drain: N/A Exp: 32 Fol: 7 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. o-------------------------o | I - x - Whipple Village |--------------------------------------------(Ixjkl)-o o-------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: Medecentra Pyroxene Enemies: N/A An event occurs right when you enter.

Eliminate the soldiers first and focus all three members on the Inquisitor. You have to go out of your way to lose this one. *** Watch the next scene following the battle. o--------------------------------o | I - xiii - Airyglyph Aqueducts |-------------------------------------(Iximn)-o o--------------------------------o Map Completion: 1/60 Scale Bunny 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 Hp: 3500 Half: N/A Mp: 80 Immune: Water Level: 18 Drain: N/A 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. o-----------------------------------o | I - xiv - Royal City of Airyglyph |----------------------------------(Ixino)-o o-----------------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: Blueberries (3), Blackberries (3), 2000 Fol, Perfect Berries (2), Cooking Ingredients (2), Ripe Berries (3), Compounding Elixirs, Aquaberries Enemies: N/A **************************** * Grocer "Dragon Treasure" * **************************** Blueberries.............................................................. 45 Fol Aquaberries.............................................................. 15 Fol Blackberries............................................................. 35 Fol Gooseberry Juice....................................................... 3100 Fol Steamed Bun............................................................. 200 Fol ********************************* * High-Quality Armorer "Tiamat" * ********************************* Holy Sword........................................................... 19,600 Fol Osprey Dagger........................................................ 15,100 Fol Broad Axe............................................................ 15,800 Fol Nodachi.............................................................. 24,000 Fol Damask Gauntlet...................................................... 44,000 Fol ******************************* * Armorer "Left-Handed Lizard * ******************************* Masterwork Plate..................................................... 24,000 Fol Superior Chain Mail.................................................. 26,800 Fol ******************************** * Outfitter "Dragon's Dungeon" * ******************************** Compounding Elixirs..................................................... 120 Fol Cooking Ingredients..................................................... 120 Fol Silver Ring............................................................ 1750 Fol Clone Generator......................................................... 350 Fol Basil.................................................................... 20 Fol Sage..................................................................... 20 Fol Lavender................................................................. 20 Fol Fresh Sage.............................................................. 310 Fol 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. o--------------------------o | I - xv - Traum Mountains |-------------------------------------------(Ixvop)-o o--------------------------o Map Completion: 1/144 Scale Bunny Items: Jewel of Alertness, Ripe Berries, 400 Fol, Blueberries, Blackberries Enemies: Bogle Leader, Bogle Soldier, Dragon Brigade Soldier, Killer Wasp, Ochre Jelly 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.

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. o---------------------------o | I - xvii - Kirlsa Caverns |------------------------------------------(Ixvqr)-o o---------------------------o Map Completion: 1/60 Scale Bunny Items: Scale Armor, Blackberries (2), Charm of Insight, Ripe Berries, Falchion, Fresh Sage Enemies: Cave Spider, Dire Tarantula, Giant Bat, Hornet, Huge Spider, Skeleton Knight, Tarantula, Water Reaper 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 keep going North and continue to follow the tracks until you find a heal pad and save point. Save your game and enter the North room. Watch the scene here. Boss: Name: Earth Smasher Weak: N/A Hp: 3600 Half: N/A Mp: 163 Immune: N/A Level: 17 Drain: Earth Exp: 40 Fol: 1495 Drop: Decrepit Tome (100%) 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. o------------------------------------o | I - xviii - Bequerel Mountain Path |---------------------------------(Ixvrs)-o o------------------------------------o Map Completion: 1/144 Scale Bunny Items: Blackberries, Ripe Berries, Crafting Materials, Aquaberries, Compounding Elixir, Writing Materials Enemies: Airyglyph Soldier (2), Black Brigade Soldier, Dire Wolf, L24 Thieving Scumbag, Legion Dragon (2), Stag Beetle, Super Nobleman Save your game right at the beginning.

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. o----------------------------------------o | I - xxiv - Riverfront Village of Arias |-----------------------------(Ixxxy)-o o----------------------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: N/A Enemies: N/A Watch the scene right as you approach the village.

East of that hidden among a couple of trees near 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. From here it's just a matter of heading North into the gate.

(Private Action) Go to the Craftsman's Guild first of all. It's on the West side of town. Speak with the person at the desk and choose "Yes, I am." Watch the next scene and set up your own workshops. For more information check out the item creation section. To get all the treasure in town read the following paragraph: From the central plaza head West. Just to the left of the second building above you (the workshop) is a chest containing Cooking Ingredients. Go straight down from that chest and rotate your camera around to find another among some food boxes containing Blueberries. Go back to the central plaza, right when you appear head directly down, beside the door to the Southwest temple is a chest 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.

Go back and follow the path until you reach a bridge, head North instead of crossing it and open the chest to receive Blackberries. Cross the bridge and head immediately North to find Blueberries in a chest. Go back across the bridge and head all the way down to the South, down a hill to the end of the river to find a large chest with Perfect Beries inside, go up the river to the waterfall and get the chest containing Cooking Ingredients. Head West across the river and into the Duggus Forest. o----------------------------o | I - xxviii - Duggus Forest |-----------------------------------------(Ixxbc)-o o----------------------------o Map Completion: 1/60 Scale Bunny Items: Compounding Elixirs (3), Blackberries (3), Aquaberries (2), Perfect Berries, Blueberries, Alchemy Materials, Crafting Materials, 12,000 Fol, Water Shielding, Gold Figure Enemies: Blue Slime, Bogle Leader, Bogle Soldier, Carnivorous Plant, Chemeleon, Grapebind, Kobold, Moonshadow Clan Member (3), Puppet Golem, Aavitch Be sure to centre your camera to start, just to your left is a chest containing Compounding Elixirs. From here head West, go North a bit then East into a little area with more Compounding Elixirs in a chest. Head West, West again then South. An event occurs here with a Faerie. (Private Action) Return to where you got the second Compounding Elixirs and go North. Grab the Blackberries from the chest and examine the spring above you, there are three types of springs: - 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: Name: Grapebind Weak: Fire Hp: 7600 Half: Earth Mp: 181 Immune: N/A Level: 20 Drain: Water Exp: 240 Fol: 7 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. Name: Moonshadow Clan Chief Weak: N/A Hp: 5500 Half: N/A Mp: 250 Immune: N/A Level: 22 Drain: N/A Exp: 35 Fol: 16 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. o------------------------------------o | I - xxix - Trading Town of Peterny |---------------------------------(Ixxcd)-o o------------------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: N/A Enemies: N/A Exit the house to continue the event.

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.

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.

Head North towards the castle to initiate a scene. o----------------------------o | I - xxxiv - Castle Aquaria |-----------------------------------------(Ixxhi)-o o----------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: Blackberries (2), Aquaberries, Fire Shielding, Jewel of Refuge, Compounding Elixirs, Ripe Berries, 4700 Fol, Magical Berries Enemies: N/A 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.

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. o-----------------------------------o | I - xxxv - Bequerel Mountain Path |----------------------------------(Ixxij)-o o-----------------------------------o Map Completion: 1/144 Scale Bunny Items: N/A Enemies: Airyglyph Soldier (2), Black Brigade Soldier, Dire Wolf, L24 Thieving Scumbag, Legion Dragon (2), Stag Beetle, Super Nobleman After the scene you'll be thrust into a battle: Miniboss: Name: Legion Dragon (2) Weak: N/A Hp: 6500 Half: N/A Mp: 800 Immune: Wind Level: 12 Drain: N/A Exp: 200 Fol: 170 Drop: Jewel of Refuge (4%) 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. o---------------------------o | I - xxxvi - Bequerel Mine |------------------------------------------(Ixxjk)-o o---------------------------o Map Completion: 1/60 Scale Bunny Items: Lightstone, Cooking Ingredients, 15,000 Fol, Blackberries, Key to Barred Door, Aquaberries, Amulet of Freedom, Copper Ore, Compounding Elixirs (2), 23,600 Fol, Blackberries, Ripe Berries, Magical Berries, Synthesis Materials, Worm-Eaten Tome 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. Boss: Name: Cockatrice Weak: N/A Hp: 15,500 Half: N/A Mp: 431 Immune: Earth, Wind Level: 44 Drain: N/A Exp: 1200 Fol: 2000 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. Miniboss: Name: Airyglyph Soldier (2) Weak: Water Hp: 4100 Half: N/A Mp: 192 Immune: N/A Level: 17 Drain: N/A Exp: 85 Fol: 10 Drop: N/A Name: Airyglyph Soldier (2) Weak: Water Hp: 4225 Half: N/A Mp: 192 Immune: N/A Level: 17 Drain: N/A Exp: 85 Fol: 7 Drop: Warrior's Bracelet (4%) Cooking Ingredients (3%) 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: Name: Demetrio Weak: N/A Hp: 14,800 Half: N/A Mp: 17,776 Immune: N/A Level: 10 Drain: Wind Exp: 1800 Fol: 4200 Drop: Synthesis Materials (100%) Name: Legion Dragon (2) Weak: N/A Hp: 3000 Half: N/A Mp: 192 Immune: Wind Level: 17 Drain: N/A Exp: 80 Fol: 8 Drop: Crafting Materials (3%) *** 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. *** Defeat Demetrio within 1 minute: 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: Name: Albel 1 Weak: N/A Hp: 26,000 Half: N/A Mp: 2600 Immune: N/A Level: 22 Drain: N/A Exp: 2400 Fol: 6500 Drop: War God's Symbol (100%) Name: Black Brigade Soldier (2) Weak: N/A Hp: 4220 Half: N/A Mp: 192 Immune: N/A Level: 17 Drain: N/A Exp: 80 Fol: 4 Drop: Smithy Materials (3%) *** 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. o------------------------------------------o | I - xxxvii - Riverfront Village of Arias |---------------------------(Ixxkl)-o o------------------------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: N/A Enemies: N/A Nothing to do here but leave for Aquios. o-------------------------------------o | I - xxxviii - Sacred City of Aquios |--------------------------------(Ixxlm)-o o-------------------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: N/A Enemies: N/A Enter Aquios to trigger the start of an event. After the scene head for the castle. Head up to the research facility on the second floor and meet Dion for 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. o-----------------------------------------o | I - xxxix - Riverfront Village of Arias |----------------------------(Ixxmn)-o o-----------------------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: N/A Enemies: N/A Watch the scene when you approach. Once you have control enter the conference room in the mansion. Watch the scene. After, head upstairs and save your game. If you're ready, then rest in your bed. Head downstairs, speak to Clair and tell her you're ready. Then watch the next event. o----------------------------o | I - xl - Aire/Kirlsa Hills |-----------------------------------------(Ixlno)-o o----------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: N/A Enemies: N/A Simply follow the path all the way to the end to trigger a scene. Name: Vox Weak: N/A Hp: 30,000 Half: N/A Mp: 20,000 Immune: N/A Level: 39 Drain: Wind Exp: 2700 Fol: 5200 Drop: N/A *** 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. o---------------------------------o | I - xli - Sacred City of Aquios |------------------------------------(Ixlop)-o o---------------------------------o Map Completion: N/A Items: Disintegration Hammer Enemies: N/A 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. o--------------------------o | I - xlii - Sealed Cavern |-------------------------------------------(Ixlpq)-o o--------------------------o Map Completion: 1/60 Scale Bunny Items: Blueberries, Cooking Ingredients, Earth Shielding, Blackberries, Anointed Chain Mail, Lunar Talisman Enemies: Bronze Brute, Flying Armor, Mage 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: Name: Flying Knight Weak: Water Hp: 17,000 Half: Fire Mp: 240 Immune: N/A Level: 35 Drain: N/A Exp: 900 Fol: 250 Drop: Smithy Materials (3%) *** 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. *** Head North to the Shrine of Kaddan. o------------------------------o | I - xliii - Shrine of Kaddan |---------------------------------------(Ixlqr)-o o------------------------------o Map Completion: 1/1 Scale Bunny Items: Saint's Stone (3), Compounding Elixirs (4), Synthesis Materials (2), Cooking Ingredients (2), Blackberries (3), Heavy Armor, Shabby Textbook, Blackberries, Blueberries (2), Cooking Ingredients, Aquaberries, Orb of Foe Finding, Alchemy Materials(2), Ant
