Even though he has been imbued with amazing powers, he realizes that in order to survive, he must recruit demons to fight alongside him. Why was the Earth transformed? Why has he become a demon?

He always seems to be in the middle of things yet when he speaks he reveals very little about himself or his intentions. ****************************************************************************** * Full Walkthrough (Fw000) * ****************************************************************************** -- I feel it important to note at the beginning that this game is very long, very challenging, and most of all very easy to get lost in. I have gone out of my way to attempt to make everything as detailed as I possibly can, you may find it to be a bit needless at some points but keep in mind in inevitable that people will get lost, almost anywhere and if I can help people from any point in the game, for any given dungeon, then I'm more than satisfied, even at the risk of being a bit tedious at times. With that said enjoy Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne! It's an incredible game. ~*~ A woman's voice narrates the beginning of the game. Soon it is time to enter your name. Last name, first name, then a nickname. Following this you will have a chance to enter the woman's name. Watch the reamining scenes that lead you into the game. o-------o o---------------------o o-| I - i |------------------------------------(Fw001)-| Yoyogi Park Station | o-------o o---------------------o -- Items: - Mysterious Drink Just East of where you start in a little corner is a vending machine, examine it to receive the Mysterious Drink.

Exit the room and head Northeast until you reach the elevator. Go inside it. Head down the path, in a little area on the East wall you will find a floating cube (cache) containing Medicine x2. Continue North, on the West side this time you'll encounter Dr. Dark, who will heal your wounds. Exit the hallway to the North.

Go back and take the East door this time, follow the hall to a walkway. Speak with the fairy here and recruit her into your party. Backtrakc two rooms until you are standing in the little area across from the elevator, head East this time and examine the first door you come to. After hearing some voices the Fairy will help you get access to the room. Select 'Yes' to start a battle. Return to where Fairy joined your party and use your gate pass on the Security System. Continue along the hall to the end, be sure to note the large demon swimming around in the lobby. When you enter the main hall, speak with the weird looking demon sitting on the floor in the open area to learn about different types of futures. Head East down the hall and enter the first door (Room 203B) and speak with the demon to receive Medicine. Leave and head up into Room 204B and get the cube containing Revival Bead.

Leave the room and head North to descend the stairs. Head down the hall and go East down another set of stairs. On this floor run to the end of the hallway. You can unlock the East door now, and save your game on the other side. Also don't forget about the healer South of the save room. Go back through the locked door and head West. When you come to an open area with a blue soul and two doors, enter the North door. Follow the hall and go into the first door you pass, get the cube containing a Chakra Drop x2. Head to the North room and ascend the ladder. One cube here contains a Mazio Rock, another a Mabufu Rock, and another 300 Macca. Descend the ladder and head South back to the small area with two door choices, enter the West one this time. Follow the hall to a door leading West, inside you'll find a cube with a Bead. Leave the room and continue along the hall and up the stairs at the end. Go North at the fork, the second door on the West wall is the healing room where you can heal yourself. The North door leads to a save point. After saving your game go back down to the fork and proceed East. Before you examine the door and continue be sure you have recruited a Shikigami into your party, it will really help out for the upcoming boss. If you feel you are ready, examine the door and choose 'Yes.' o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Forneus | | Fighting Forneus is an easy battle which | HP: 500 | | relies on a simple repetition of attacks. | MP: 200 | | Always use Zio whenever the option presents | Macca: 2000 | | itself, this will give you an extra turn each | EXP: 150 | | time, also have your main character use Lunge | | | any time the Zio attack puts the boss in a | Physical.....N/A | | temporary state of paralysis. The Pixie can | Fire.........N/A | | be on healing duty but only if you need it, | Ice..........Drain | | being very aggressive with the electricity | Electricity..Weak (1.5) | | based attacks can eliminate the need for a | Force........N/A | | good defense. | Almighty.....N/A | | | Expel........N/A | | | Death........Void | | | Curse........N/A | | | Nerve........N/A | | | Mind.........N/A | | | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o You received the Magatama: Wadatsumi After the battle examine the two cubes to find Medicine x2 and Revival Bead. Approach the front doors and select 'Yes' to leave the area. On the map, proceed Southwest until you reach Yoyogi Park. o--------o o-------------o o-| I - iv |-------------------------------------------(Fw004)-| Yoyogi Park | o--------o o-------------o -- Items: - Chakra Drop - Dis-Poison - Life Drop - Life Drop The Pixie will tell you it's time to say goodbye. You now have the option of getting rid of Pixie or keeping her. If you get rid of her you get the Ankh Megatama. If you keep her then you can unlock a special area later in the game, note that the Ankh Megatama can simply be purchased later, keeping Pixie is obviously going to be the preferable option. To keep her choose the following: "I hope not" "I need you" Afterwards, go forward and examine the cube to receive a Chakra Drop. Head North up the stairs and follow the path to the end, in the door you'll find another cube with Dis-Poison inside. Leave and go all the way South, entering the door at the end. Open the cube to find Life Stone x2, then enter the South door. This is a Fountian of Life, you can pay to heal yourself as well as revive characters and remove the curse status here so keep that in mind. Return to the entrance and leave the area. Head South until you find Shibuya, and enter. o-------o o---------o o-| I - v |------------------------------------------------(Fw005)-| Shibuya | o-------o o---------o - Items: - Dis-Charm - Dis-Charm - 1000 Macca Go up from where you enter to find an entrance to the underground mall. Head down there, there are numerous doors here with many loactions such as a Fountain of Life, Junk Shop, Cathedral of Shadows and Terminal. The Junk Shop sells two Megatamas, Iyomante and Shiranui, it is unlikely you can afford both at this point but that is no matter. Pick up whatever you need and be on your way. The Cathedral of Shadows allows you to fuse your demons, but it's not something you really need to worry about right now. Head to the terminal and save your game. Enter the room beside the terminal and open the chest to receive an item. Go back upstairs to the intersection and take the underground mall access on the right side. Take the North branch, then go East, then North again at the mop-demon. There are three red doors here, the one on the East side has a cube inside, but also a forced battle against a Beast Nekomata. Use Zio, as she is weak to electricity. Open the cube to receive Dis-Charm x2. Return to the fork with the mop-demon and go South, follow this path up the stairs to find a Mystical Chest with an item inside. No return to the stairs on the right, of the outdoor intersection hwere you first start. Before descending the stairs to an even lower level, you can speak with the blue soul between the two staircases to trigger a battle. A very easy battle. Afterwards descend the staircase to a lower level. Take the South branch and enter the door at the end. A cube in here contains 1000 Macca. Return to the fork and go North this time, follow it all the way to the end and enter the door. Watch the scene that occurs here. After, talk to the demon and choose to do something naughty (fight her) to receive some information. Return to the intersection on the surface, a new demon has appeared. He'll tell you something important when you talk to him so do so and then head to the terminal Choose 'Yes' and enter. Watch the scene and then save your game. When you believe you are prepared, select talk and then choose 'Yes.' o--------o o---------------o o-| I - vi |-----------------------------------------(Fw006)-| Amala Network | o--------o o---------------o -- Items: - Dis-Stone - Bead - Life Stone - Life Stone - Mazan Rock - Chakra Drop Follow the path North and go through the door. When you come to a fork, facing the fork take the left branch. In the next screen you'll see a cube, open the cube to get Dis-Stone and then take the right branch, do not go down the path beyond the cube. Run to the end of the hall, watch a quick scene and head up the stairs. Follow the path until you reach the next fork, go left (East) and into the door to find a cube containing a Bead. Go back to the fork and go right (West), then continue in that direction until you encounter another event. Since the stairs are blocked, take the only path leading East. You'll come to a three way branch, North is a healing room, East is a save point, and South is where to continue on. When you head South you'll find a door leading South and another down the hall to the East. Head down the East hall and go through the door. At this fork the left branch is the one you want to take, but get the cube first, it contains Life Stone x2. At the next fork go left and at the next one go left again and enter the door. Watch the scene here. Afterwards return to the staircase which just opened. While running through the fork areas if you happen to take the wrong one simply run to the end of the hall, then turn around and you will find yourself at the beginning again. From there it is easy to backtrack to the stairs (save your game on the way.) When you get upstairs run to the end of the hall and go into the door. Go left at the first fork, and then go right at the second. You will soon come across a 4-way split, continue in the same direction. Continue to go in that direction right to the end and through the door, then watch the scene. After the scene run West one map, then West another map to find yourself at the 4-way split again. This time head left (South) to the end where you'll find another fork, go left (East) and itno the door. Take the stairs to the next level. Go left at the first fork. Run forward, ignoring the branch until you come to a 4-way split. Go left and follow the path all the way to a staircase. At the bottom you'll find a cube containing a Mazan Rock and a Chakra Drop as well as a chest. The bottom cube will only damage your party. Continue through the door. From this point head North, and then go right (East) at the 4-way split. Take the first path branching North that you come to. At the next fork go right (East) and follow that path up the stairs. Continue along the path until you reach another fork. The left branch (East) leads directly to a door with a save point, if you continue down the path past that door you'll reach a healing room. Use both. Return to the fork and take the right (West) path this time. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Specter (x6) | | At the start of this battle focus your most | HP: 148 | | powerful physical attacks on one enemy at a | MP: 100 | | time. On their third turn all the enemies | Macca: 160 | | will unite into a larger enemy, and it will be | EXP: 100 | | more powerful depending on how many small | | | specters are still alive. It is strong | Physical.....N/A | | against all elements, so your raw power is | Fire.........Strong | | going to make more of a difference here. The | Ice..........Strong | | most important thing is getting rid of as many | Electricity..Strong | | specters as possible right to start, so you | Force........Strong | | aren't completely overwhelmed by the end. | Almighty.....N/A | | | Expel........Void | | | Death........Void | | | Curse........N/A | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Before going into the door, take the left path again and save your game. Proceed through the large white exit. o---------o o--------------------o o-| I - vii |-----------------------------------(Fw007)-| Labyrinth of Amala | o---------o o--------------------o -- Items: - Candelabrum of Sovereignty You will be transported to a very odd place. Move forward and examine the peephole to trigger a scene. After the scene you will be transported to Ginza for real. Save your game and leave. o----------o o-------o o-| I - viii |-----------------------------------------------(Fw008)-| Ginza | o----------o o-------o -- Items: - Repulse Bell You seem to be in some kind of underground mall. If you have the need for a Fountain of Life you can find one through the door to the East. Head through the West door, then down the hall and into the first door you find leading South. Inside you will find a cube containing a Repulse Bell. Talk to anyone you wish in this section of Ginza, then return to the circular front hall where you came in. Take the North door this time. Straight ahead you'll find Rag's Jewelry, where you can trade gems for numerous things. To the West of Rag's is a Cathedral of Shadows, where a new type of fusion 'sacrificial fusion' has become available. On the East side of Rag's is Nyx's Lounge, but you can't get into the secret stash room at the moment. That's about it for now, when you're ready to leave head to the West side of this hall and leave through the door to the South. On the main map go South to a place called the Assembly of Nihilo. Enter to see a quick scene. Afterwards return to Ginza and enter Nyx's Lounge. Speak to Madam Nyx at the bar to get some new information. Following this, leave Ginza again and head East. Cross two bridges and go South to find a large set of buildings laballed as the Harumi Warehouse, go inside. o--------o o------------------o o-| I - ix |--------------------------------------(Fw009)-| Harumi Warehouse | o--------o o------------------o -- Items: - Muscle Drink - Makajam Rock Enter the warehouse and grab the cube containing Muscle Drink, and the other containing Makajam Rock. Enter the door, at the fork you'll find a terminal to the West so save your game. To the East is a gate, open it by activating the panel right beside it. Continue on and descend the stairs to the Great Underpass of Ginza. o-------o o--------------------------o o-| I - x |-------------------------------(Fw00A)-| Great Underpass of Ginza | o-------o o--------------------------o -- Items: - Maragi Rock - Maragi Rock - Mahama Rock - Mahama Rock - Poison Arrow - 1000 Yen Bill - Manikin's Letter - Medicine - Medicine - Candelabrum of Foundation - Smoke Ball - Life Stone - Life Stone - Some Droplet Head down the path until you see a quick little scene. Run to the end of the path without turning and press X to descend the ladder. At the bottom you will find a cube containing Maragi Rock x2. Head back up the ladder and take the North path branch you walked by previously leading to where you saw the person. Follow it to the end and descend the ladder. Another quick scene, then ignore the first door and enter the second. Follow this path out the next door, and the next to find yourself in a cylindrical shaped hall again. A quick scene occurs, then run down to the bottom of the slope where the path branches. Start by taking the West (straight ahead) branch to find a cube containing Mahama Rock x2, then go back and take the North branch. Follow it and enter the door for another scene. Enter the first door to find a terminal you can use and save your game, the second door has people you can talk to. Go down the stairs and into the water, on the other side parallel to this one are two rooms with a Junk Shop and a person you can talk to. Go back in the water and head West, going up the sole staircase on that side. The first door contains a cube with Poison Arrow inside, both rooms have people you can talk to. Run to the end of this path and climb the ladder. Head in the East direction and follow the path around, just beyond the first door you'll find a ladder going down. Descend it and enter the door to initiate a scene, then go back up the ladder. Continue along the path (entering any doors if you so please) and take the South branch when you pass it. Descend the ladder at the end and cross the water to find a Mystical Chest. Go back up and continue West where you previously took the South branch. A man will inform you that you cannot pass. Remember the junk collector down the ladder to the East? Return to him now. He will ask you if you want help getting through, obviously respond 'Yes' and you'll be given a quest to bring him a bill. It's time to return all the way back to Ginza and Nyx's Lounge. When you arrive at Nyx's Lounge, speak to Loki (sitting at the table) for a quick conversation. Leave Ginza, on the world map note another entrance at the Northeastern side of Ginza, enter from there. This is a secret entrance to Loki's stash which is usually guarded, but not right now. Be sure you saved like I said. Approach the door and choose to unlock it. Inside you'll find a 1000 Yen Bill. Since the door leading to Nyx's Lounge is locked, go back out the way you came. The Troll guard has returned unfortunately. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Troll | | The Troll is by no means an easy boss, even | HP: 850 | | with some important precautions. These | MP: 150 | | precautions include ingesting the Wadatsumi | Macca: 1000 | | Magatama to nullify his ice attacks, as well | EXP: 100 | | as using any skills in battle that can at | | | least weaken the devastating power of his | Physical.....N/A | | Mabufula spell (which can deal upwards of 40 | Fire.........N/A | | damage to each character at once.) His | Ice..........Drain | | skill is also powerful which is physical based | Electricity..N/A | | and his attack in comparison, is weak. To | Force........N/A | | defeat him, try using any mind based attacks | Almighty.....N/A | | you may have (push select to show the dialogue | Expel........N/A | | menu which tells you a skill's element) and if | Death........N/A | | you don't have any, use Zio to try and | Curse........N/A | | immobilize him which makes him vulnerable to | Nerve........N/A | | critical hits, which in turn will get you more | Mind.........Weak (2.0) | | attacks in. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle, save you game and return to the underground manikin city to deliver the bill to the collector. When you arrive and hand the bill over, you will receive Manikin's Letter. Head up and speak with the gatekeeper again. You will be granted access. At the fork go left (South) and follow the path. You'll get a message about your Candelabrum, then quickly check the little area to the North to find a cube containing Medicine x2. Speak to the manikin. At the next fork go left (South) again, and you'll encounter a boss. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Matador | | The Matador is an extremely hard enemy you | HP: 1000 | | have to encounter at this point. I recommend | MP: 500 | | no level lower than 18 to take on this guy. | Macca: 700 | | His force elemental attacks will hurt and he | EXP: 1200 | | casts Red Capote to increase his dodging power | | | 4x more than a normal spell. What you'll need | Physical.....N/A | | to do before the battle is two things (besides | Fire.........N/A | | levelling to level 18). First go to the junk | Ice..........N/A | | shop and buy the Hifumi Magatama, and ingest | Electricity..N/A | | it. It nullifies force. Next you want to | Force........Void | | recruit an Angel (found on the surface map) | Almighty.....N/A | | and a Pixie (found in Ginza.) Go to the | Expel........Void | | Cathedral of Shadows and fuse them into an | Death........Void | | Uzume who should be at a high level, have the | Curse........Void | | Media heal spell, as well as being immune to | Nerve........Void | | force. With this combination take on the | Mind.........Void | | Matador. If you have Fog Breath here, use it | | | to lower his super dodging ability, then rely | | | on physical attacks for the battle. Good luck. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle you will receive the Candelabrum of Foundation. Follow the tunnel around until it branches, head East to find a cube with Smoke Ball inside. From here head West and enter the door. Keep going straight and take the North branch, follow it to the end and descend the ladder. At the bottom you will find a Mystical Chest. Climb the ladder and head East until you find a branching path leading South, follow it and enter the door. Just before the ladder going down you'll see another door, it leads to a terminal save point so save your game, especially if you haven't done so since defeating the Matador. Now descend the ladder beside the save point door. Run to the end and open the cube to find Life Stone x2, then head into the water. Go West to the only other available staircase and climb the ladder. Follow the path until you reach a fork, go West and enter the second door. Follow the path to the end and down the ladder you'll find a cube which is an HP damage trap, and a Mystical Chest. Go back up and return to the fork (the one where you went West and entered the second door.) Go East this time and descend the ladder right in front of you. Follow the linear path to the next ladder. Enter the door at the top. Go straight and enter the first door on your right (North) at the end you'll find a cube containing Medicine x2. Go back out the two doors and take the West path to a ladder, descend it. When you go in the water you'll see two staircases one on the South side (left when facing them) and one on the North side (right when facing them). Go up the left (South) staircase and climb the ladder, then go down the next one. You'll be on a little ledge with a Mystical Chest. Return to the water area and take the right (North) staircase this time. Climb the ladder, take a few steps and go down the next one. When you get in the water you'll again see a left (South) and right (North) staircase. Take the left (South) one and follow it to a terminal save point. Go back and take the right (North) one and follow it up a ladder. When the path forks be sure to go East and open the cube which contains a Soma Droplet. Go back and head West into the door. It will lead you to a ladder. Once at the top of the ladder you'll finally be outside, in the Zoshigaya Cemetery. Just a bit Northwest of where you came up the ladder is a hidden Mystical Chest. Speak to the blue soul and examine the door to exit. To the North you'll see a red gloawing building on the left of the highway, that's Ikebukuro, enter it. o--------o o-----------o o-| I - xi |---------------------------------------------(Fw00B)-| Ikebukuro | o--------o o-----------o -- Items: - Bead - Repulse Bell - Bead - Bead Head straight down the stairs, avoid talking to this demon (as well as other demons here) because they will initiate combat with you. When you get to the next map you'll be in a large area with a couple escalators. The room directly to your East leads out fot he area, but there are five other rooms. Four of those five includea Fountain of Life, save terminal, Cathedral of Shadows and a Junk Shop. One thing to note is that if you talk to the demon standing in the middle of the area, he'll ask you a question. You can change your Reason depending on how you choose to answer. When you're done going about your business leave the area through the lower East door. In this area ascend the stairs towards the Mantra headquarters. Listen to a few brief words and choose to enter to trigger a scene. Soon you'll find yourself in a cell, start by opening the cube to receive a Bead. Examine both sides of the cell to listen to the adjacent prisoners speak, which will trigger the next chain of events. When you have control you can go South and pay a demon for info on the upcoming fights, then go North and into the door to continue the scene. The first demon will ask if you are ready, sleect 'No' to be able to access your menu, otherwise select 'Yes' to fight. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Orthrus | | Orthrus isn't too hard, but don't get too | HP: 1000 | | cocky. First of all it is important to have | MP: 200 | | demons and Magatama ingested that are void | Macca: 200 | | against fire. Also having ice spells is a | EXP: 150 | | great advantage. Use whatever ice spells you | | | have along with physical attacks to drain his | Physical.....N/A | | health as much as possible. At one point | Fire.........Drain | | during the fight he will tell you how stong | Ice..........Weak (1.5) | | you are and increase the power of his attakcs, | Electricity..N/A | | remain undaunted and use the same strategy | Force........N/A | | remembering to heal whenever necessary. Also | Almighty.....N/A | | note there are a number of battles in a row, | Expel........Void | | so if someone dies now it may be more of a | Death........Void | | problem than you think. | Curse........Strong | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Select 'Yes' to begin the next battle. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Yaksini | | Before this fight you should ingest Magatama | HP: 1200 | | that are resistant to Force. Use spells like | MP: 200 | | Zio in order to take advantage of her weakness | Macca: 400 | | as well as often putting her in a state of | EXP: 300 | | paralysis which you can then switch to | | | physical attacks and rack up the turns with | Physical.....N/A | | critical hits. If you have anyone at all in | Fire.........N/A | | your party weak to force there is a good | Ice..........N/A | | chance they will die even if you stay healed | Electricity..Weak (1.5) | | since she has some powerful Force based single | Force........Void | | hit attacks, so you may want to switch them | Almighty.....N/A | | out before the battle. | Expel........Void | | | Death........Void | | | Curse........Strong | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Select 'Yes' to begin the next battle. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Thor | | Thor is another extremely hard boss, since at | HP: 2000 | | this point in the game you won't have any | MP: 3000 | | Magatama that void electric, it just makes the | Macca: 800 | | battle even harder. His lack of weaknesses | EXP: 700 | | also makes it a test of physical brawn. In | | | order to win this battle it helps to | Physical.....N/A | | understand just how much of a difference the | Fire.........N/A | | Attack/Defense raising/lowering spells make. | Ice..........N/A | | Just a few casts can triple the normal damage | Electricity..Repel | | you do, so be sure you get some off, | Force........N/A | | especially ones that lower Thor's attack and | Almighty.....N/A | | magic. At a certain point in the battle he'll | Expel........Repel | | get angry and start absolutely pounding you, | Death........Void | | by this point you must kill him very quickly | Curse........Strong | | to avoid certain death so you better have cast | Nerve........Void | | all your stat modifying spells by now, because | Mind.........Void | | you only have time to attack at this point. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o You obtained the Magatama: Narukami After the battle be SURE to return to the terminal and save. Another boss fight is coming up. At this point what you are going to want to do is recruit a Momunofu (the soldier demons) into your party, since they are very physically resistant and the upcoming boss only has physical attacks. Once you have one in your party return to the Mantra Headquarters, he will come down upon you automatically. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Dante | | Dante can be a really hard or really easy boss | HP: 2400 | | depending on how prepared you are. To start | MP: 3000 | | obviously be sure to ingest the Kamudo | Macca: 800 | | Magatama for the physical defense, and the | EXP: 900 | | extra power. Dante doesn't have anything | | | special going for him in the defense area, | Physical.....N/A | | to physical attacks are the way to go. You | Fire.........N/A | | will probably want to do either of the | Ice..........N/A | | following: Cast attack raising magic on your | Electricity..N/A | | party, or cast some kind of negative spell on | Force........N/A | | Dante. It doesn't matter which spell since he | Almighty.....N/A | | will cast Holy Star to negate it, but it's | Expel........Void | | still worth doing because that spell will use | Death........Void | | up one of his turns. Besides that just don't | Curse........Void | | stop attacking, note that later in the battle | Nerve........Void | | when he casts provoke it is not just dropping | Mind.........Void | | your defense, it is also raising your attack | | | power tremendously. (Also note that he is | | | healing MP, not HP when using it don't worry.) | | | You'll be surprised how simple tactics can | | | easily win this fight. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle watch a quick scene and return to save your game. Return the bottom of the stairs before where you fought Dante, and exit through the East door. When you come to a fork head North and enter the door at the very end. You'll find yourself in a large room, there is a cube containing Repulse Bell in a little area to the South. After obtaining it go out the North door. To the East you'll see two escalators, go up. Follow the hallway down the South branch (there's only really one path here) and go into the door at the end. Run all the way to the end of this walkway to find a Mystical Chest. Now return to the staircase right outside Mantra HQ. Go up to the door of Mantra HQ but do not enter. Instead run around to the right (East) and follow the walkway South straight down into the door, when you approach it you will hear voices and trigger a battle inside. After you win open the Mystical Chest, avoid the South-most cube as it is just a trap, open the other cube to find Bead x2. Leave the room and enter Mantra Headquarters. o---------o o---------------------o o-| I - xii |----------------------------------(Fw00C)-| Mantra Headquarters | o---------o o---------------------o -- Items: - Mamudo Rock - Attract Pipe - 3000 Macca - Candelabrum of Eternity Head straight North. The second door on the left (West) leads to a save terminal. Enter the first door on the right (East.) When you reach the fork go South and into the door, you'll find a cube here containing Mamudo Rock. Leave the room and head straight North, enter the door and go upstairs. Follow the hall until you find yourself in a large battle chamber. Exit the chamber via the door on the West side. Head South at the path fork. The last room you come to before the dead end contains a cube with Attract Pipe inside. Return back along the hallway, when you reach the area where you first came into this hallway (where you have a choice of a West and East door) take the West door. You'll find yourself in an elevator, so elevate yourself to 3F. When you exit the elevator, you'll find a North and East door, take the East door and follow it East. The hallway will lead you in a large linear C shape to another elevator, you will pass by the cell you were originally imprisoned in. When you enter you have a single choice, 60F so make it. You will see a number of staircases when you exit, three to be exact. Ascend the one in the middle to find a cube containing 3000 Macca. Go back down the tairs and climb the upper North-most set. They will lead you up four flights to 64F with a large door. Enter the door. Enter the chamber and watch the scene. Whatever answer you choose here will increase your Reason toward a particular direction. After the scene return to the entrance of Ikebukuro and save your game. An optional boss fight is currently available. Read the tabbed section for instructions on how to fight him, or skip ahead to the non-tabbed section to continue. At the bottom of the stairs in front of Mantra HQ is a blue soul. Speak to it and it will tell you about a strange monk that has been hanging around the East section. Head through the East door, go North down the hall and into the final door at the end to find yourself in the large room again. Go out the North door and you will get a message saying the Candelabrum is flickering, walk a few steps forward to trigger a scene. o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o-------------------------------------------o Daisoujou | | This boss fight isn't so much hard as it | HP: 2500 | | is well... long. The good side of the | MP: 800 | | battle is that his attacks are weak, | Macca: 2000 | | his ability to hit you can be | EXP: 2000 | | significantly reduced, and he doesn't | | | pull any really painful surprises. The | Physical.....Strong | | bad part is he uses Mind based attacks, | Fire.........Strong | | which you likely don't have Magatama to | Ice..........Strong | | defend against, he casts instant death | Electricity..Strong | | spells, he heals himself, and last but | Force........Strong | | not least he halves all damage including | Almighty.....N/A | | physical damage with the exception of | Expel........Repel | | Almighty. You need a system. Star the | Death........Repel | | battle and be sure one of your characters | Curse........Drain | | has Fog Breath to lower his aim to the | Nerve........Void | | bottom. If you can raise your dodge as | Mind.........Drain | | well all the better. Now his Meditation | | | attack which he uses all the time is | | | going to start missing rather often which | | | means no HP gaining as well. Secondly | | | use whatever attacks you have, Almighty | | | great but Physical will do, when he has | | | Fog Breath cast on him to the max, HP | | | draining physical skills will never miss | | | and hopefully rack up a few criticals. | | | Be sure someone can cast Media whenever | | | needed which can become a pain since | | | Meditation drains your MP as well, don't | | | fight this battle without a few Chakra | | | drops. Near the end of the fight he'll | | | start casting a spell which allows him | | | four consecutive turns, and even if | | | you've had control of the battle so far | | | the sheer number of attacks could start | | | to get the best of you, so lay off on the | | | defense and hope that you can kill him | | | off before he finally takes you out. | | | With 2500 HP and 1/2 damage from | | | virtually everything, this battle won't | | | be quick one, don't be unprepared. | | | | | o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle you will receive the Candelabrum of Eternity. Return to the entrance and save your game. It's time to head to the Assembly of Nihilo. Use the terminal and return to Ginza. Leave the town, the assembly (you've been there once before) is to the South. o----------o o--------------------o o-| I - xiii |----------------------------------(Fw00D)-| Assembly of Nihilo | o----------o o--------------------o -- Items: - Yellow Kila - Tetraja Rock - Tetraja Rock - White Kila - Dis-Mute - Dis-Stun - Wagtail Plume - Red Kila - Life Stone - Life Stone - Green Kila - Revival Bead - Sacred Water - Candelabrum of Dignity - Soma Droplet Enter the Assembly and go East. Take the elevator down to B2F (B1F has two cubes, both empty.) Enter the large core at the centre of the room. You'll be given a choice of two things, you choice adds points towards your Reason. After the scene leave the large core room through the South door. Follow the hallway to the end and enter the elevator. Your only choice here is B10F so make it. Run to the end of the hall and go thorugh the door. You'll have to fight a couple of simple enemies here, but it's nothing compared to what you've faced recently. After the fight you obtain the Yellow Kila. To the West is a save terminal, use it. When you're ready to proceed take the North door. You will find yourself in a very odd looking area with connected square rooms. The switches rotate the rooms and create new passages. You are free to experiment with it however you wish if you're looking to enjoy the puzzle, if you're stuck or wish to proceed quickly use the following instructions: (Instructions start from the very bottom square room you appear in when you enter this area, when it says 'North' it means go North to the next room and no further, one room at a time) 1.

North (All the way to the very end) At the end you will encounter an enemy. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Eligor | | In order to defeat Eligor you need to take | HP: 700 | | advantage of his weakness to electricity. | MP: 200 | | He has the ability to summon monsters but | Macca: 100 | | ignore tham and just focus your attacks on | EXP: 200 | | Eligor, be sure to avoid any kind of Physical | | | hit if you can help it. You fight Eligor a | Physical.....Strong | | total of four times, each time he is able to | Fire.........N/A | | summon a different kind of enemy. | Ice..........N/A | | | Electricity..Weak (1.5) | | Fights with: | Force........N/A | | | Almighty.....N/A | | Dis | Expel........Strong | | HP: 198 | Death........Void | | MP: 117 | Curse........N/A | | Macca: 130 | Nerve........N/A | | EXP: 106 | Mind.........N/A | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle open the cube to find White Kila.

Inside you will find a cube with Dis-Mute. Leave the room and go through the door to the North, You'll soon find yourself at a 4-way split. Two branches have treasure, run to the end of the West branch (do not stray off the man path) to find a cube with Dis-Stun. Return to the 4-way and take the East branch this time, at the end enter the room to the South to find a Mystical Chest, if you choose to do this you'll have to fight yet another Eligor. Return to the 4-way split and go North. All the way North will lead you to a save terminal. Head West of the save terminal door. Near the end of the hallway enter the door leading South to find a cube containing Wagtail Plume. Return to the save point and head East this time. At the end of the hallway examine the door and enter. Grab the cube which contains Red Kila. When you try to leave... o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Berith | | Berith is a slightly harder version of Eligor. | HP: 1000 | | Use ice attacks if you have them and the same | MP: 103 | | basic tactic, what really makes him harder | Macca: 600 | | is actually the Succubi he has with him, they | EXP: 1000 | | are able to confuse your characters which will | | | almost certianly lead to your downfall. | Physical.....Strong | | Ending this battle quickly as possible is the | Fire.........Drain | | key to victory. | Ice..........Weak (1.5) | | | Electricity..N/A | | Fights with: | Force........N/A | | | Almighty.....N/A | | Succubus | Expel........Void | | HP: 300 | Death........Void | | MP: 220 | Curse........Void | | Macca: 300 | Nerve........Void | | EXP: 500 | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Return to the Southern exit of this whole area. (Don't forget to save.) Again head all the way South until you cannot go South anymore, you'll be in one of the square rooms again. 1. West 2. North 3. Operate the switch 4. East 5.

Demon changes switch At this point I'm going to choose to stop step by step instructions because they'll go to about 200, and it's pretty simple. From here what you want to do is go to the switch at the upper right (Northeast) corner and activate it. When you do it will create a path to the upper left (Northwest) switch which the demon screwed up, so go back to that one and operate it. When you do you'll have to go all the way back to the upper right (Northeast) corner and operate that switch to finall have a path to the top. It's a lot of work but I guarentee there will be a path available. Make your way to the middle square at the North most area. Enter the door. Follow the hallway around to the West, you'll find yourself in a large area with a hefty number of doors, ignore them and go directly into the West door. When you enter it, the next door you come to leading North is a save terminal, USE IT! From the save point door head West, when you come to a fork go left again, when you come to another fork go South. There is a cube here with 3000 Macca inside. Leave the room and go all the way North, in the chamber you'll find a cube containing absolutely nothing. Leave the room to trigger a scene. Chase the demon back to the large room with all the doors. He's hiding in the third door on your left (West). o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Kaiwan (x3) | | Be sure you bring a character with Fog Breath | HP: 650 | | into this battle, or any skill that increases | MP: 288 | | your party's ability to dodge. The instant | Macca: 500 | | death spells are no laughing matter, until | EXP: 400 | | you dodge them and the enemy loses all its | | | press turns. Use physical attacks, and charge | Physical.....N/A | | them with skills like focus, they only have | Fire.........Void | | 650 HP and each time one is defeated the | Ice..........Void | | battle just gets that much easier, so be as | Electricity..Void | | offensive as you can right at the beginning | Force........Void | | when it's most dangerous. | Almighty.....N/A | | | Expel........N/A | | | Death........Void | | | Curse........Strong | | | Nerve........Strong | | | Mind.........Strong | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle you receive the Green Kila. Return to the square room puzzle area and climb the ladders back up to B10F. When you reach the central room with the four coloured slots be sure to go West and save your game before doing anything. If you happen to be lost remember this room is just South of the square room puzzle on B10F. Examine each of the four coloured stations and put the respective Kilas in. A big circular ramp will open up along the edge of the wall so descend down to the bottom and enter the door. Go down the hall, when you come to a fork head West. At the nest fork go South, then West. At the end here where the path turns North enter the room to the South. Inside is a cube with a Revival Bead. Exit the room and go all the way North into another room to find a cube containing Sacred Water. Return to the fork near the entrance to B14F and take the East path this time. Run to the end and follow the hall North. Ignore the path branching West and enter the first door you pass, inside is a Mystical Chest. Now return and go down that West path you ignored, then head North when it forks. At the end you'll find an elevator, take it to B15F. Be absolutely sure to enter the door on the East side and save your game. When you're ready, head South to trigger a scene. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Ose | | This boss is easy if an only if you get a good | HP: 3800 | | system going, something I didn't have my first | MP: 500 | | two tries. To start fuse some high level | Macca: 3000 | | demons, elemental weaknesses aren't too | EXP: 1200 | | important, physical resistance matters most. | | | When you fight the battle get a system going | Physical.....N/A | | where you have some good magic attacks and | Fire.........N/A | | good physical attacks. Start the battle with | Ice..........N/A | | your strongest either magical or physical | Electricity..N/A | | attacks (and use Focus if you have it.) What | Force........N/A | | you do in each successive turn depends on what | Almighty.....N/A | | the boss does. If the boss uses Focus and | Expel........Void | | does his big sword slash against your whole | Death........Void | | party, you'll need to cast Media and then do | Curse........Strong | | pretty much the same thing as the beginning. | Nerve........Strong | | Now, if he uses either one of his physical/ | Mind.........Strong | | magical protections you have to be careful. | | | If he uses physical protection obviously use | | | only magic attacks, and vice versa. Note the | | | skills only last one turn so everything you do | | | should be based on the enemies' previous turn. | | | If he casts his agility up spell you may want | | | to rely on normal physical attacks with Focus, | | | rather than something like Focus + Lunge. | | | Since there isn't any weakness to exploit it's | | | your job to come up with a system that will | | | work and continue to work until he dies, since | | | he has at least 1000 more HP than any boss so | | | far. Fortunately for you he doesn't seem to | | | have any backup super attacks for when he gets | | | close to death, his basic pattern remains | | | pretty constant from start to finish. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o You received the Magatama: Anathema After the scene when you're on the map, head North to Ginza and take the Amala Network to Ikebukuro. Run up and enter Mantra HQ to trigger a scene. The choice you make during the scene can affect your overall Reason. Enter Mantra HQ and go West. Straight ahead of you is the elevator, take it to the basement. Enter the door on the left of the demon, the second cell contains a Mystical Chest. Leave and enter the door to the right of the demon and an event occurs you you do. Run to the end of the cells, if you have more than 25 strength you can open the door and get the Magatama Gaea. Return to the elevator and go to 1F. At the Northeast corner of this floow (not the stairwell, East of that) there is a room with an exit protected by two guards. Head there now. Speak with the guards then return to the elevator and take it to 3F. Run along the path to the other elevator, the cells are now open so you can get the Mystical Chest in the North-most one. Enter the elevator and take it to 60F, and return to see Gozu-Tennoh on 64F again. Enter the room for a scene. After witnissing that, leave to see another scene. With the recents events that have passed, you are now able to go through the previously guarded door on 1F. Return to the entrance to Ikebukura and save your game! An optional boss fight is currently available. Read the tabbed section for instructions on how to fight him, or skip ahead to the non-tabbed section to continue. When you're out on the map, walk onto the large highway and begin heading South on it. You should already have received a message about the Candelabrum assuming you defeated Daisoujou. Part way down the highway you will automatically be attacked by him. o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o-------------------------------------------o Hell Biker | | Despite his hard exterior and his | HP: 3000 | | rebellious nature, with the right | MP: 1000 | | preparation the biker won't give you any | Macca: 2500 | | trouble. The most important tactic of | EXP: 2500 | | this battle occurs before battle, I can't | | | stress enough the importance of having | Physical.....N/A | | one character immune to Force and one | Fire.........Void | | immune to Fire, he has one attack of each | Ice..........N/A | | type he uses at least half the time and | Electricity..N/A | | since they both hit you're entire party, | Force........Drain | | he'll lose many press turns this way. | Almighty.....N/A | | Besides that physical is mostly the way | Expel........Void | | to go, as always charge up with Focus, | Death........Void | | always be ready to heal his physical | Curse........Void | | wheel spinning attack. There's no real | Nerve........Void | | point in using status effecting skills | Mind.........Void | | since he can negate them, but if you're | | | looking for another way to waste his | | | turns it's always an option. | | | | | o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle you will receive the Candelabrum of Dignity. Return and save your game. Outside of Mantra HQ get on the highway and take it as far as it goes. When you get off head West through the damaging red stuff as far West as you can go you'll find a little town area with a cube, open it to receive Soma Droplet. Go back East a little bit until you're between the two damaging areas and go South down a little slope, the path here leads West and around pretty much stright to your destination, a little building edged by the damaging red stuff. Enter the Kabukicho Prison. o---------o o------------------o o-| I - xiv |-------------------------------------(Fw00E)-| Kabukicho Prison | o---------o o------------------o -- Items: - Umugi Stone - Spoon Head East right when you enter to save your game. Head to the Northeast corner for a quick scene. Afterwards return to the main area an another scene will trigger. Return to where you saw the Naga for the first time for a quick conversation and an easy normal battle. For defeating the Naga you get the Umugi Stone which allows you to enter the portal, do so. Return to the main area, speak to any of the manikins in the cells you wish, then go South and take the West path. Descend the ladder at the end. On this floor run to the end of the hall and take the ladder down again. Again same thing, find the ladder at the end of the hall. When you reach 4F run straight North and try to speak with the manikin in the cell, choose 'Yes' to talk to him. Run West and then North, use the Umugi Stone on the Mysterious Wall. Head South then East, when you're almost at the gate you'll see a hole to the South, jump down it. Just West and East of where you land are two panels which will open gates. Activate them and then descend the ladder to the South. Press the switch right in front of you. Head East, North, West, North, East and climb the stairs. At the top the path will lead to a gate which you can open. Unlock it and head West (save your game.) Follow the hallway East back to the second floor. Approach the Mysterious Wall and use the Umugi Stone. Head straight South and descend the ladder. If you examine your map you will see there are three ladders on the South side, you want the one in the middle so go around and descend it. Head up a little, to the West is the Collector Manikin, the one you recognize from the Great Underpass, speak to him to receive the Spoon. Take a few steps East and jump down the hole, then a few steps West and jump down the next one. Speak to the manikin who asked for the spoon. Head West and North and use the Umugi Stone on the wall. Go to where the manakin's cell was and jump down the holehe created. Follow the hallway to the stairs, on you way down the hall on the West side open the gate via the panel. Continue South and climb the ladder at the bottom. Straight ahead of you is a save point, use it. Go back down the ladder and through the gate you opened up. Use the Mysterious Wall to return to the mirage world. Now that the gate to the East is open go through it, head South and descend the ladder. Make your way North here, a manakin will speak to you. When you're ready, enter the door and watch the scene. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Mizuchi | | The first step to success in this fight it the | HP: 4800 | | ingesting of the Wadatsumi Magatama prior to | MP: 500 | | the battle. In the actuall battle make sure | Macca: 1500 | | one of your characters has some decent fire | EXP: 1000 | | magic to exploit his weakness and get some | | | extra turns. He has the ability to remove | Physical.....N/A | | negative status effects but he doesn't seem to | Fire.........Weak (1.5) | | use it often so feel free to lower his defense | Ice..........Void | | for some extra damage, even if he does knock | Electricity..Drain | | it away, he's just wasting a turn. Defense | Force........N/A | | wise you should be fine with the hero immune | Almighty.....N/A | | to ice. By now you might have the next level | Expel........Void | | of healing spell but even Media will suffice. | Death........Void | | The real frustrating parts of this boss lie in | Curse........N/A | | his HP total, and the Macca you'll drop from | Nerve........N/A | | spending a good amount of time panicked. | Mind.........N/A | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o You received the Magatama: Miasma When the mirage disappears you can open all the Mystical Chests in the room. Take the door leading North for a scene. After, go into the room on the right for another. Your choice he has an effect on your Reason. Head South to find all the manakins standing together to thank you a final time. When all is said and done go South and save your game. Use the terminals and return to Ginza. A scene occurs when you arrive. After the scene return to Ikebukuro. You're approaching a dark area so be sure to pick up a few Light Balls at the shop while you're here. When you're ready take the exit out of the Mantra HQ that leads to the highway. Go South, but not on the highway go around, and enter the uilding below labelled as East Ikebukuro Station. o--------o o------------------o o-| I - xv |--------------------------------------(Fw00F)-| Ikebukuro Tunnel | o--------o o------------------o -- Items: - Dekaja Rock - Light Ball - Soma Droplet - Medicine - Life Stone - Life Stone - Life Stone - Muscle Drink - Bead Follow the linear path around to the stairs and head to B2F. Run straight ahead, you'll find traks on your left and right side, follow the right (North) tracks. When you enter the next area along the tracks it's pitch dark, use one of the Light Balls to light you path. Enter the hole in the North part of the wall to find a Mystic Chest. Go back and follow the South tracks this time (follow them West) to the next area. Go past the demon to find a terminal. Go directly West from the terminal room right to the end. Descend the ladder. Leave the room and run directly across to the next one to find a cube with Dekaja Rock inside. Ignore the ladder for now, leave the room and take the North branch. At the first fork take the North path again. Grab the cube containing an Attack Mirror and turn around immediately (any further and you'll fall through a hole. Go back South to the fork and enter the West door. Continue West and down the ladder. Leave the room, when you reach a fork go South and follow it (don't walk onto the damaging smoke) to a terminal room where you can save your game. After you do return to the fork where you went South and go North this time. When the path curves you'll see a door to the North, enter it. Climb the ladder inside. Go down the hall ignoring the first branch North, take the second branch. Inside the room you'll see a lot of smoke and a safe spot on the other side, run to that safe spot and you'll drop down. Run down the hall, when it curves West you'll see a Mystical Chest down a Southern branch get the chest but go no further! Another hole is beyond it. Instead run across the smoke and be sure you're fully healed before entering the door. When he tells you to come here, say 'N-no Way' to fight him. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Sui-Ki | | Miasma is the Magatama you're going to want | HP: 3500 | | for this battle, and it'll save your life. | MP: 1500 | | Fire based magic is going to be one of your | Macca: 3000 | | only sources of damage here since physical | EXP: 1000 | | attacks are halved, exploit his weakness as | | | much as possible. He has no way of removing | Physical.....Strong | | negative status effects so use any and all you | Fire.........Weak (1.5) | | use it often so feel free to lower his defense | Ice..........Drain | | deem useful, I recommend minimizing he defense | Electricity..Strong | | so that you can at least cut down that HP | Force........Strong | | without expending every last point of MP you | Almighty.....N/A | | have. | Expel........Void | | | Death........Void | | | Curse........Void | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Leave the room and fall down the hole to the South, past the Mystic Chest. Form where you land head South and grab the cube containing Light Ball. Go all the way North. The cube here contains a surprise battle against three trolls. Run all the way East and open the cube to find a Soma Droplet. Head all the way South now and go East to find a cube containing Medicine. Go South then East to find another cube with Life Stone x3. Head South and climb the ladder. Run East along the red smoke and go South immediately at the other end. Save your game here, then leave. Head North along the path, you'll come to a West branch. Ignore it. You'll come to a North branch, ignore it. You'll come to another West branch, be sure to take it otherwise you'll fall into a hole. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Kin-Ki | | A Magatama with physical resistance is what | HP: 3000 | | you want for this battle. This can be very | MP: 2000 | | very diffucult if you don't have a lot of | Macca: 3000 | | powerful magic. His resistances are odd, his | EXP: 1000 | | weaknesses aren't actually 'weaknesses' he | | | will take 150% damage but it won't register as | Physical.....Strong | | a weakness, similarly his stregnth against | Fire.........Weak (1.5) | | physical attacks is more than just 50% it's | Ice..........Weak (1.5) | | actually as much as 90% damage reduction, they | Electricity..Weak (1.5) | | are useless. You absolutely must use all the | Force........Weak (1.5) | | magic you have as well as magic boosting | Almighty.....N/A | | skills like Makakaja (found on the Mizuchi | Expel........Void | | enemies in the prison if you need it.) Near | Death........Void | | the end of the fight he will be going at you | Curse........Void | | with four consecutive turns, weakening you | Nerve........Void | | with each spell, never has there been a better | Mind.........Void | | time for a brutal (magical) offensive. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Check your map, return to the save point in the Southern-middle area of this floor to save you game. Afterwards head North, when the path branches West take the first North path you find. Climb the ladder at the end. Along the path on the next floor take the first North branch and go up the ladder surrounded by damage floor. Start heading South and take the West branch (continue South to a save point if you didn't already use one.) You'll soon come to a door, where if you enter you will automaticlly be kicked out, so go around it by heading North. Follow that path West, then down and immediately West again. When you reach the tracks head South. Continue South until you find a cube, it contains a Muscle Drink. You are currently on the East set of tracks, go up the little set of stairs and get onto the West tracks then go North into the tunnel. When you come to a hole in the wall head West, then North at the fork. You'll cross some damage floor and at the end once again you'll face another boss. (Don't agree to give him money, he just keeps it and gives you nothing.) o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Fuu-Ki | | A Force null Magatama is your best equip here. | HP: 3500 | | Exploit his weakness to Electricity if you can | MP: 1000 | | do so. Putting him into a state of either | Macca: 3000 | | shock paralysis or freeze is your main goal | EXP: 1000 | | here so you can get off some massive damage | | | (upwards of 400-500 with a Focus + Lunge | Physical.....Strong | | attack.) Use speels that raise your magic and | Fire.........N/A | | lower his defense similar to the last enemy, | Ice..........N/A | | this is a straightforward battle but that | Electricity..Weak (1.5) | | doesn't make it easy. The more Force immune | Force........Drain | | demons you have backing up, the easier it is. | Almighty.....N/A | | | Expel........Void | | | Death........Void | | | Curse........Void | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After you defeat the boss return to the save point. The door just West of the save point you couldn't enter before, is now accessable. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Ongyo-Ki | | I can imagine this being the hardest boss ever | HP: 5500 | | if you don't know what you're doing, but | MP: 1500 | | that's what this guide is for. First of all | Macca: 10,000 | | you can pretty much equip any Magatama you | EXP: 5000 | | want because you likely aren't even going to | | | get hit. Here's exactly what you need: One | Physical.....N/A | | character with Rakunda, one character with | Fire.........N/A | | Fog Breath and two heavy hitters, physical, | Ice..........N/A | | magical, whatever. Here's the other important | Electricity..N/A | | thing, you must fight him with Kagutsuchi at | Force........N/A | | full. The reason for this is at full, the | Almighty.....N/A | | real Ongyo will always have a little circle | Expel........Void | | shadow below him. There's the trick. The | Death........Void | | entire battle consists of this. One person | Curse........Void | | uses Rakunda every turn, one character uses | Nerve........Void | | Fog Breath every three turn (or more) and two | Mind.........Void | | other characters take care of the massive | | | you're going to have to rack up on this guy. | | | (Which usually means Focus + physical.) | | | He will use every turn to cast a number of | | | bonuses on himself and remake his | | | doppelgangers. There might be the odd time | | | he attacks instead (very rare) which could be | | | pretty harsh if you've let him max out his | | | attack, but heal if necessary. It's very | | | easy to see the strategy yourself once you get | | | this simple little setup going. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle enter the room to the West and get the cube containing Bead. Also open the other cube and: You received the Magatama: Murakumo From here head West to the track platform, go up the stairs then out of the station entirely. On the world map, head to Asakusa, the large town Northwest of where you appear. o---------o o---------o o-| I - xvi |----------------------------------------------(Fw010)-| Asakusa | o---------o o---------o -- Items: - Magic Mirror - Attract Pipe - 3000 Macca - Candelabrum of Compassion - Candelabrum of Compassion Assuming you've completed the first and second Kalpa (Labyrinth of Amala) and witnessed the scene at the entrance of the Third Kalpa, you will be able to fight another field. By 'able' I mean he will pester you for the rest of the game if you don't defeat him now. Approach the save terminal to initiate the fight. Continue to the non-tabbed section if you have not completed the requirements to meet him. o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o-------------------------------------------o White Rider | | Before fighting the White Rider be sure | HP: 4000 | | to equip the Ankh Magatama on your main | MP: 1500 | | character. When the battle starts he | Macca: 3000 | | will summon two Virtue enemies to help | EXP: 5000 | | him. He is able to kill off party | | | members in one hit, and his Virtues can | Physical.....N/A | | lower your stats dramatically. With | Fire.........Void | | these two things in mind you can see how | Ice..........N/A | | important it is to end this battle | Electricity..N/A | | quickly. To do so, use numerous | Force........N/A | | attack raising and defense lessening | Almighty.....N/A | | spells, as well as full party targeting | Expel........Void | | Force spells to get more turns (the | Death........Void | | Virtues are weak to Force.) Use Focus | Curse........Void | | and physical attacks to dish out as much | Nerve........Void | | damage as possible, and remember while | Mind.........Void | | 4000 is a lot, it's nothing you haven't | | | seen before. | | | | | o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle you will receive the Candelabrum of Compassion. Return and save your game. Following this battle, another fiend is immediately available. Head to the Great Underpass of Ginza and leave the terminal to trigger it. o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o-------------------------------------------o Red Rider | | Similar to the White Rider, the Red Rider | HP: 4300 | | relies on the help of two allies to | MP: 1700 | | defeat you. Start by equipping some Mind | Macca: 3000 | | resistant Magatama and enter the battle. | EXP: 5000 | | Ignore his helpers, that;s what I suggest | | | and you can't really rely too much on | Physical.....N/A | | negative status inducing spells since he | Fire.........N/A | | can negate them, but anything like Fog | Ice..........N/A | | Breath or quick low MP spells like | Electricity..Void | | Rakunda can be useful to waste his turns, | Force........Void | | and the effects still apply on your turn. | Almighty.....N/A | | Watch out for his Terror Blade, it's the | Expel........Void | | worst of his attacks that can wipe out | Death........Void | | your party if he's been getting a lot of | Curse........Void | | attack boosts (War Cry is a good way to | Nerve........Void | | knock those down a notch or two.) Rely | Mind.........Void | | on Physical and magic skills besides | | | Electricity, and never let him get his | | | attack too high. | | | | | o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle you will receive the Candelabrum of Insight. Return and save your game. Head back to Asakusa. Enter the save terminal for a quick scene. Visit any shops and such you need to then head North. Go all the way North and exit this section of Asakusa to the East and enter the next section across the bridge on the map. Note: In this area in the Southeast room is a game you can play to receive a Magatama. The game is very challenging and complecated and I have little intention of trying to explain it through text. I highly recommend trying to play this game yourself it's quite fun, reminiscent of the old Gameboy puzzle games like Kwirk. One more thing to note though, if you are here because you are having trouble with it and have even consulted the official strategy guide you are correct in checking, because the guide's answer is wrong on puzzle 20. Here is a correction provided kindly by jayntampa: Step 4. Instead of Left 1 should be Right 1. Step 16. Should be down 1 into the hole instead of up 1. Step 33. (just Typo should be 180 degrees) Step 34. Should be 90 to the left. Step 35. Should be down 5. Step 37. Should be down 5 into the hole. Follow the hallway until you come to a branch leading North, take it. At the next fork go East and exit to the world map. Across the bridge you'll find a cube containing Magic Mirror. Go back in and follow the hallway to the end without taking any branching paths. Exit to the map and head Southwest to the next section. Head as far North as you can, you'll find two doors. One room has a cube with Attract Pipe, then other with 3000 Macca. Go back South and take the first East branch you come to, it'll lead you onto the world map again. Enter the large building labelled Mifunashiro. Head North to trigger an event. After the scene return to the very first, main area of Asakusa (don't forget that since you've already gone through, the map will make navigating the return trip rather easy.) This time take the West exit out of Asakusa and enter the West section of town. Speak to the manakin at the bottom of the stairs. Go just past him and enter the door to the East for a scene. Afterwards Hijiri is done his work with the terminal so return to the main area and speak with him. When the conversation ends return to Ginza. Leave Ginza and head East across the bridge, but instead of going South, go North this time and go all the way along the highway. At the end you'll find a cube on the West side with a battle against a Succubus inside, and just North of that is the other section to the Assembly of Nihilo, enter it. o----------o o--------------------o o-| I - xvii |----------------------------------(Fw011)-| Assembly of Nihilo | o----------o o--------------------o -- Items: - Medicine - Tetraja Rock - Bead - Life Stone - Life Stone - Life Stone - 10,000 Macca Go North and enter the elevator, take it to B15F. When you get off use a Light Ball assuming you still have one (or any demons with the light skill.) Take a few steps West, then go straight up to a room with a cube inside, you'll find a Medicine. Leave the room and go all the way South to find another cube containing Tetraja Rock. Return to the elevator door and go directly East, find the cube with a Bead inside. Head down the hall leading South and exit the room through a door on the South wall. Follow the linear path from here, down a REALLY long hallway leading to an elevator. Go to 1F and you'll be in the front hall. The North door leads to a save terminal, the West to the world map. Go West across the bridge then South to find a cube containing Life Stone x3. Head South from the exit of the Assembly, then as far West as possible, and North up the slope. At the top you'll find a cube containing 10,000 Macca. Return to the middle and cross the large bridge to the reach the Obelisk. o-----------o o-------------o o-| I - xviii |----------------------------------------(Fw012)-| The Obelisk | o-----------o o-------------o -- Items: - Dis-Mute - Chakra Drop - Chakra Drop - Life Stone - Life Stone - Life Stone - Life Stone - Sacred Water - Dekaja Rock - Bead - 8000 Macca - Life Stone - Life Stone - Medicine - Medicine - Candelabrum of Wisdom Head to the large pillar in the middle. Go to the Northeast corner to find a cube with a Dis-Mute inside. From the middle go to the West to find a save terminal. Head North to take the elevator. Ride it up to 15F. From the pillar in the middle of this floor, the West path leads to a dead end. Take the East path up the elavator and follow it around to find a Mystical Chest. The South path (from 15F) leads to an elevator, before you reach it a scene will occur. Afterwards proceed up. When you reach the top take the staircase along the East wall and continue up the next elevator. Go up the stairs when you get off the elevator here. You'll find a glowing sphere. The puzzle works as such, it is based on the phases of Kagutsuchi. Touching the glowing sphere will reset Kagutsuchi to NEW. The door will open when Kagutsuchi reachs half. To advance Kagutsuchi under these circumstances you must stand on special platforms. These platforms will advance Kagutsuchi by exactly the amount of diamonds displayed on the plaform. You must also be directly next to the door when Kagutsuchi reaches half. Take this puzzle for example to start: Walk onto the platform with three diamonds after touching the glowing sphere. Proceed West to the one diamond platform. You now are at half Kagutsuchi and right beside the door and the puzzle is solved. That's the idea. Proceed onward around the hall and up the stairs. Before going up the small set of stairs leading to the elevator, head West and grab the cube containing Chakra Drop x2. Now go up the elevator. Head East and then South to reach a save terminal. Continue East and the path will curve North. When you come to a West branch, take it. At the fork go East and open the cube to find Life Stone x4. Go West for a few steps past the path you were previously on, and head South up the stairs. The cube here contains Sacred Water, return and continue West. Follow the path to the end without branching and it'll lead you to yet another cube with Dekaja Rock inside. Backtrack until you find a branch going South, take it and follow it directly to the elevator. On the next floor take the path West and ride the little elevator. It will take you down to a hall with a cube containing Bead. Go back up and follow the path to the East this time. When the hall curves South you'll come to a staircase leading up with a staircase leading down just to the right (West) of it. Take the staircase leading down. At the bottom head as far West as you can before going North up the next staircase. If all is well you should find a glowing sphere at the top. Touch the sphere. Step on the three diamond block, followed by four diamond, two diamond, one diamond, two diamond. Follow this path to a Mystical Chest and return. Touch the glowing sphere and this time: Step on the one diamond block, followed by three diamond, and four diamond. Step off and ride the elevator up. Go North, there are five elevators in a row here. From left to right, West to East labelled 1 - 5 take number 3, the centre one. Grab the Mystical Chest and step onto the East block. Go South from where you land and step on that block. From here go West and take the next block. Go down the stairs and you'll find yourself once again at the five elevators, this time take number 2, second from the left (West.) Ride the elevator at the top. When you reach the top get onto the right (West) block. Touch the glowing sphere: Step on the two diamond block, followed by the one diamond, four diamond, one diamond, four diamond. Proceed South and take the first East branch you come to. Open the cube to receive 8000 Macca and ride it back. Return to the glowing sphere and touch it: Step on the two diamond block, followed by the one diamond, two diamond, empty block, three diamond. Go up and take the block across to the other side. Head North up the stairs and you'll find another glowing sphere, touch it: Step on the three diamond block, move back and forth fro mthe three diamond to the no diamond block a total of three more timesto bring down the gate. Run to the end of the path to find a Mystical Chest. Return and touch the sphere: Step on the three diamond block, followed by the one diamond, three diamond, one diamond. Ignore the elevator and step onto the block to the North. Here you'll find a save terminal as well as a Cathedral of Shadows. Ride the block again and take the elevator to the next floor. Just hed up the stairs until you come to a fork. When you do, take the right (West) path to find a cube containing Life Stone x2. Go back to the fork and follow the East path. Ride the block at the end. Head South down the hallway at the fork, when you come to another fork proceed West. When you reach 99F via the stairs, be sure to head South at the first fork you come to. You have the fortunate luxury of finding a Fountain of Life here, perform any necessary healing you need. Leave the fountain and head West. If you wish to get some items, get on the elevator and read on, otherwise skip the tabbed section. Get on the elevator when you reach the top. Follow the path and head North at your first chance. Touch the glowing sphere: Step on the two diamond block, followed by the three diamond, two diamond, one diamond. Run to the end of the path and grab the Mystical Chest. Return to the glowing sphere: Step on the one diamond block, followed by the two diamond, one diamond, two diamond, one diamond, two diamond, three diamond. Step onto the elevator and ride it down. Go East and run to the end of the path to find a cube with Medicine. Turn around and head West. When you're on the West side of the map you'll find a cube hidden in a little area around the middle, it contains a Medicine. Now run all the way to the end of the hall, ignore the next cube you pass (It's a trap!/10) and open the one at the very end. You will receive Spyglass. Return to the elevator and ride it up, and ride up the elevator on that floor as well. Take a few steps South from the elevator and follow the East path, follow it without taking any branches until it changes to 103F. Once it does, take the first branch leading North that you come to. Take it to a large block elevator and ride it up. Follow the stairs until you reach a fork. At the fork head West and follow it to the very end to find a cube containing Soma Droplet. Follow the path in the opposite direction right to the end to find another save terminal, be sure to save your game here. Head once again in the opposite direction but this time take the North staircase that leads up (do not mistakenly descend the one you came from, it is an upward staircase.) At the top ride the elevator. This fun glowing sphere puzzle leads you to three bosses, and you cannot return to save after each one so it may be in your best interest to read the boss descriptions before battling. Touch the sphere: Step on the one diamond block, followed by the no diamond block, three diamond block. The battle begins: o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Clotho | | A relatively easy battle awaits you here, your | HP: 2200 | | best chance is having immunity to charm | MP: 1200 | | attacks, but if you can kill her fast enough | Macca: N/A | | it won't really matter. She won't do a thing | EXP: N/A | | about negative status effects so drop her | | | defense to the bottom, rise your attack power | Physical.....N/A | | and don't be surprised if you see a three hit | Fire.........N/A | | kill here. The faster you go the better | Ice..........N/A | | because she will heal a tiny bit most turns. | Electricity..N/A | | | Force........N/A | | | Almighty.....N/A | | | Expel........Void | | | Death........Void | | | Curse........Void | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle do not leave the puzzle. Step on the empty tile, then one diamond, no diamonds, one diamond, two diamonds. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Lachesis | | Don't be surprised if she spends the entire | HP: 2200 | | battle building her physical attack and | MP: 1200 | | lowering her defense, that before she's able | Macca: N/A | | make any use of it, you've pounded her into | EXP: N/A | | the ground. Same idea as Clotho applies here, | | | however being a primarily physical attacker | Physical.....N/A | | you'll probably have an even larger advantage | Fire.........N/A | | with a couple of Fog Breaths at the start of | Ice..........N/A | | battle. Just be sure she's taken out before | Electricity..N/A | | your defense/her attack min/max out. | Force........N/A | | | Almighty.....N/A | | | Expel........Void | | | Death........Void | | | Curse........Void | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Step left (East) onto the one diamond block, followed by the two diamond, again on the (East) one diamond block. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Atropos | | Having Electricity immunity going into this | HP: 2600 | | battle is a great asset. Use the same basic | MP: 2000 | | strategy here, it's a bit harder because she | Macca: N/A | | has a little more HP, and your party is likely | EXP: N/A | | taxed from previous battles, nevertheless | | | with a few hard hits with a lowered defense | Physical.....N/A | | she won't stand for too long. | Fire.........N/A | | | Ice..........N/A | | | Electricity..N/A | | | Force........N/A | | | Almighty.....N/A | | | Expel........Void | | | Death........Void | | | Curse........Void | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle it's ok to go back and save, the puzzle will remain complete. If you wish you can also return down to the Fountain of Life, though it's a long walk. Head South from where you defeated the sisters and ride the elevator. Run to the other side of the map and take that block, rather than the one in front of you. Head North off the elevator. Look East and West, you can see two Mystical Chests, navigate to the chests from here (which is probably easier than directions given the zig zaggedness of the paths.) Once you have them ride the block back up. Return to the other side and get on the block, choose 'Yes' and be on your way. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Atropos | | For starters, the more diverse your team's | HP: 3000 | | elemental protection is the better to guard | MP: 1500 | | at least one of a multi hit spell and use up | Macca: 1000 | | all their press turn icons. It may sound | EXP: 3000 | | redundant to say so, but I can't stress enough | | | the effectiveness of spells like Rakunda and | Lachesis | | Fog Breath here. The Fog Breath will mean you | HP: 2000 | | can pretty much use any HP skill attack and | MP: 1000 | | not worry about it missing, and the Rakunda | Macca: 1000 | | means it's going to do a lot. I'm not kidding | EXP: 1000 | | when I say the final blow was struck by the | | | protagonist with a Focus + Lunge dealing | Clotho | | 2274 damage to Atropos. The only real | HP: 2000 | | problem comes up when they use an anti | MP: 1000 | | physical shield, but just use that turn to | Macca: 1000 | | focus, heal, and be sure there are no other | EXP: 1000 | | negative status spells to be cast. As with | | | most similar fights in all games, the healer | (Applies to all three) | | must go first (Clotho) followed by the lesser | | | HP (Lachesis) and finally Atropos. Assuming | Physical.....N/A | | you don't have to deal with any charm | Fire.........N/A | | shenanigans, or an unexpected weakness with | Ice..........N/A | | your main character, you'll be fine. | Electricity..N/A | | | Force........N/A | | | Almighty.....N/A | | | Expel........Void | | | Death........Void | | | Curse........Void | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o You received the Magatama: Djed Examine the square of light and ascend. Watch the scene at the top. Return to the terminal, save your game and link your way back to Asakusa. Hijiri is waiting for you and a scene occurs when you arrive. The choice you make when speaking to him will affect your Reason. Now that you have completed the Obelick another Fiend battle has opened assuming you have defeated them all so far up to the Red Rider. Skip past the tabbed section if you have not completed the requirements. In order to find the next fiend, you need to return to where it all started, the Shinjuku Medical Center. Head to the Annex and go to 2F. At the Northwestern corner in room 204B you will be called upon to fight. o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o-------------------------------------------o Black Rider | | First of all don't even think about | HP: 4600 | | coming into this battle without Djed | MP: 1800 | | Magatama equipped. Secondly I'm going to | Macca: 3000 | | tell you the super secret of a guarenteed | EXP: 5000 | | win, it's nothing new, nothing special | | | just a simple skills: Fog Breath. With | Physical.....N/A | | two casts of this spell you should be | Fire.........Drain | | dodging virtually every attack he and his | Ice..........N/A | | legions do. Couple this with two War | Electricity..N/A | | Cry's, and add the fact that he cannot | Force........N/A | | remove the effects, and the battle falls | Almighty.....N/A | | in your lap. Physical and magic boosts | Expel........Void | | should easily put your Focus damage into | Death........Void | | the quadruple digits even without | Curse........Void | | criticals, even if he hits you with Soul | Nerve........Void | | Devide he'll waste a turn since your | Mind.........Void | | Djed Magatama voids it. The only hard | | | part i forsee is the beginning, when you | | | haven't quite knocked his stats down to | | | those of an infant. | | | | | o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle you will receive the Candelabrum of Wisdom. Return and save your game. Return to Asakusa and speak with Hijiri to transport to the Amala Network. o---------o o---------------o o-| I - xix |----------------------------------------(Fw013)-| Amala Network | o---------o o---------------o -- Items: - Dis-Charm - Medicine - Life Stone - Chakra Drop - Magic Mirror - Magic Mirror - Revival Bead - Candelabrum of Majesty Head North and go through the door. When you come to a 4-way split go East, in the next area grab the cube containing Dis-Charm and return to the room you were just in. Go North at the split this time. Open the cube to receive Medicine and continue North. At the fork, take the right (Northeast) path, then the left (North) at the next one. A scene will occur, choose any option and continue North to the stairs. When you reach the fork on the next floor go South and follow it around, it will lead you to another four way split. Down the West path is a save point, head North (From the 4-way split) after saving. On the next screen is another puzzle. Head North and a scene will occur, then a wall sppears behind you. Head East at the fork and follow it until another scene occurs. Head West and and take the second branch North to find a cube with Life Stone inside. Go East and immediately North to the next room and climb the stairs. When you come to a fork, it's another similar puzzle. Go East and follow the path until you reach a cube (and a door appears.) Open it to find a Chakra Drop, then exit the room to the East. Head forward and go East, take the first path West and then head North all the way to the end (open the cube to find Magic Mirror.) Take a couple steps East and leave the room via the North exit. Take the West path and grab the cube on the right containing Magic Mirror (the one on the left is a trap.) Exit to the West. Now head forward and take the East path. Exit North and continue North to find a save point. Leave the room and head West to trigger a boss fight. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Specter (x6) | | The Specter is back with a new arsenel, | HP: 980 | | namely a little spell called Megido. However | MP: 29 | | unfortunately for the Spector he can only cast | Macca: 600 | | this powerful spell with a good supply of MP | EXP: 2000 | | which he has no way to get other than draining | | | it from you. The Specter will drain your MP | Physical.....N/A | | and use it to cast its own spells. The | Fire.........Void | | solution is just as obvious as it sounds, | Ice..........Void | | before the fight get into a battle and drain | Electricity..Void | | all but a little bit of MP for each character. | Force........Void | | Set it up so that you have enough MP per | Almighty.....N/A | | person to cast some nice status boosting | Expel........Void | | spells on yourself and be left with no MP. | Death........Void | | The Specter will spend the entire battle | Curse........N/A | | draining 0 MP out of you and using weak | Nerve........Void | | physical attacks. Assuming everything goes | Mind.........Void | | well, the Specter should be long dead before | | | those attacks risk actually killing you. This | | | fight should just be fought physically since | | | he has all those elemental immunities (in fact | | | with the right setup there's no reason this | | | battle can't be fought with a single press of | | | the triangle button. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Don't forget to save after winning (and heal MP is you need it.) Run to the end of the hall and go North, a scene occurs here. The answers you choose have a very small effect on your Reason. Enter the door for another scene. If you say you feel the same way as Isamu, one of the Musubi flags will be turned on. After the scene head North and exit the Amala Network. Leave the terminal and head North in Asakusa, then exit via the East exit. Navigate through the next part of town. Now when you're on the world map again go North, this section of town is now open. Make your way to the door and exit this section of town, right when you enter the next one, down the hall is a Pixie that tells you of something in Ikebukuro. With this information head back and take the terminal to Ikebukuro. Run towards the Mantra HQ and you will trigger a scene. Your choice here will have a large effect on your Reason. Return to Asakusa. For the next scene you need to return to Mifunashiro, the area right in the lowest central part of Asakusa, you've been there once before. Where Futomimi, the manikin who can see the future currently is. After listening to what he says return to the first area of Asakusa. Save your game and head down the path to the North, take the West path before you reach the end that was previously blocked. When you enter if you have defeated the previous three horsemen, the fourth will attack you. Skip the tabbed section if you have not completed the previous battles. o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o-------------------------------------------o Pale Rider | | After a number of fights I came to the | HP: 5000 | | realization that the trick to defeating | MP: 2000 | | the Pale Rider is speed. You need to | Macca: 3000 | | start by using as many status lowering | EXP: 5000 | | and boosting spells as possible, but if | | | a character has the choice between either | Physical.....N/A | | using one of these spells or attacking, | Fire.........N/A | | go with attacking. The reason is as | Ice..........Void | | follows, when he summons his two demons | Electricity..N/A | | they will use an attack called Debilitate | Force........N/A | | which generaically just weakens your | Almighty.....N/A | | party and everything they do, the more of | Expel........Void | | these you have to endure the less chance | Death........Void | | you're going to have of beating him so | Curse........Void | | get off as much damage as you can near | Nerve........Void | | the beginning while you're still powerful | Mind.........Void | | enough to hit hard. Otherwise just | | | raise your dodge and lower their aim, | | | don't even go for the two demons, when | | | you hurt them they have a good chance of | | | performing a very dangerous self destruct | | | attack you don't want to be hit by. | | | | | o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle you will receive the Candelabrum of Majesty. Return and save your game. Continue Along the path, when you come to a South branch you can head down it to find another junk shop with some new Magatama to sell. Keep going West along the main path above the shop, the first door you come to has a cube with Revival Bead. Keep going South, then West, and South. To the West here is a save terminal, to the East is the exit. On the world map head Southwest to a place called Yushima Station. o--------o o----------------o o-| I - xx |----------------------------------------(Fw014)-| Asakusa Tunnel | o--------o o----------------o -- Items: - Medicine - Medicine - 8000 Macca - Soma Droplet Enter the station and head to the lower floor (you'll need a light item/skill here. Leave this station area to the West via the North set of tracks. Go through the hole in the wall to the North. You'll come to a 4-way split. To the West is a cube containing Medicine x2. To the North is a cube containing 8000 Macca. Return South and go back to the large train area with two sets of tracks. Go West via the South tracks this time. There are three holes in the South wall here. Enter the first one you pass and descend the ladder. There is a Mystical Chest at the bottom. Return to the area of the tracks with three holes in the wall and enter the second hole this time. Descend the ladder. Go North and head West at the first branch, then enter the door right in front of you. The cube at the upper left corner contains a Soma Droplet. The lower left is a trap, and the upper right is a fight against three not too hard enemies. Leave the room and go West, North, West through the door. Follow the path to the end and go up the ladder. When you reach the top, exit the area and leave the station entirely. On the world map head West to reach the East entrance to Yoyogi Park. o---------o o-------------o o-| I - xxi |------------------------------------------(Fw015)-| Yoyogi Park | o---------o o-------------o -- Items: - Life Stone - Life Stone - Life Stone - Key to Yoyogi Park - Life Stone - Life Stone - Chakra Drop - Sacred Water - Medicine - Medicine - Medicine - Life Stone - Life Stone - Chakra Drop - Yahirono Himoragi - 5000 Macca - Candelabrum of Beauty When you enter the park go forward a bit and head North. At the top you'll find a cube containing Life Stone x3. Use the save terminal here, then head all the way South to trigger a scene. No matter which option you choose you receive the Key to Yoyogi Park. Return to the central area and exit West. Get ready for this, the map is HUGE and full of teleports, so pay very very close attention and follow the directions. Head West to start, at the fork take the left (South) path. The instant you find a path going right (North) take it. Any further and you will teleport back. Head West to the end and go out the door to the North. In this area head straight North and open the cube containing Life Stone x2. Return to the door you came in from and go as far East as you can. Head North, then immediately East when a path appears, go as far East as you can. Head North all the way to the top, then West and go in the door. Take the North door here. A quick scene occurs. At the 4-way split head East, in the next room you'll find a Mystical Chest. Return to the split and head North, as far North as you can go until you hit a wall. When you reach the end head East through the door to the next wall. Now this is important so listen closely. Turn and face South. Take the left (East) path South, then immediately go West when there is an opening. Then head South. Grab the cube containing Chakra Drop and the Mystical Chest. Take the same path you just took back up to the top of this room and go back out the door to the West. Head West as far as you can, then look South. Take the left (East) path South to the end, then go West and South to find another Mystical Chest. From the chest take a few steps North until you can go East. Head East, then take another few steps North and go down the first path leading West. Proceed through the door. Head North at the fork to find a save terminal, save your game. From just standing outside the save terminal door, head Southwest and go into the door leading South. Keep going South until you see a short scene with some Pixies. Head South until you hit a little stub of wall. Go around it to the left (East) and enter the first door on your left (East.) When you enter go down the hall and another quick scene will say the Pixies are changing formation. After the scene try and return to the door to be teleportedto another spot. From where you appear head North through the door to find a Mystical Chest. Go back down and you will be transported back to the area just South of the save terminal. Head Southwest from the save terminal again to the door and go through it. Head South and you should get another scene with the Pixies saying "Lets try a cross formation." (Note if this doesn't happen, go down and path and return here after being teleported, make sure they say they are going to use cross formation at this point.) *** Head South but this time take the right (West) path and enter the first door on the right (West.) If all has gone well you should get a message from the Pixies saying they're changing to X formation. Follow the path around and head all the way East to find a cube containing Sacred Water. Go back and head through the door to the North. Once you go through the door do not move either left or right, when you go directly North from the door you should hit a wall after about 3-4 seconds. At this point head West. Here's the real test, the Pixies should say they are changing to cross formation. After they do head throgh the door to the West and you're finally rid of them. Grab the cube containing Medicine x3 and head South through the door. (Just a quick note based on a realization that a this explanation may not quite help all people at this point so here's a general idea of how it works to figure it out yourself. In X formation the Pixies will be at the Northeast, Southeast, Northwest and Southwest paths. In cross formation they will be at the North, South, East and West paths. The path you are trying to get to is the West one, which you can only go down in X formation. And since the Pixies start in cross formation, you must use the fact that they switch whever you go down a path they don't have covered, to solve the puzzle. If you'd like to try the explanation again, return to the first part where the Pixies automatically go into cross formation and try it from the *** marker in the last paragraph. One more note, if they are already in cross formation, the scene when they change to cross formation right at the beginning will not occur. Good luck.) Head all the way South to the very bottom wall. Now face your character East. See those three doors on the North wall in front of you? What you need to do is run 'along' that wall with the doors without actually entering them. What I'm trying to say is that there are teleports in the middle of the path you are looking at, and you need to get to the East wall. Do not try running East while pressed against the South wall as there is a bunch of junk near the end. When you get to the East wall take a few steps up and enter the closest door leading North. Grab the cube containing Life Stone x2. Ok now here's hwere it gets hard so pay attention, remember those three doors? Go back out and take the middle one (one door West of where you are.) When you enter keep count. From here go North through one door, then a second door, then head down the West path. At the fork go North through the door. Head East at the fork and grab the cube containing Chakra Drop. Return to the fork and head all the way South. A Pixie will transport you. Head directly South from where you land to be transported again. North of where you land this time is a Mystical Chest. Head South to get picked up by a Pixie and South to be picked up again. From where you are now go West and head as far North as you can at the fork. (Quick treasure free way to get past this part: From the entrance with the three doors, enter the most East of the doors. Go North (past a cube) to be transported by a Pixie. From where you land head West then all the way North.) From this point head East (do not go in the large door marked Comm Tower.) Instead head South from the door to the next room. Open the two cubes here to receive Bead and Revival Bead. Exit South to find a terminal, where you should most definitely save your game. Head back North and go through the large Comm Tower door. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Girimehkala | | Considering his physical immunity, this is | HP: 4000 | | another war of magic. Since this boss is very | MP: 2000 | | frequent in his casting of Dekunda don't | Macca: 500 | | bother too much with casting -nda spells on | EXP: 2000 | | him, instead focus on using -kaja spells on | | | your own party, in particular one to boost | Physical.....Void | | your magic. If you don't have a lot of | Fire.........N/A | | powerful magic this battle can take a good bit | Ice..........N/A | | of time, luckily you can last a fiarly long | Electricity..N/A | | time if you get the upper hand by boosting | Force........N/A | | your agility he'll have a hard time hitting | Almighty.....N/A | | you. Any Dekaja spells or items work great in | Expel........Void | | this fight to keep his accuracy low, and | Death........Void | | anything to keep the poison at bay as well. | Curse........Void | | If you run out of things to do with one of | Nerve........Void | | your characters, it may be to your advantage | Mind.........Void | | to use some Attack boosting spells, they'll | | | help you in the next battle. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Sakahagi | | All your boosts you used on your characters | HP: 1600 | | remain here since you never actually leave the | MP: 300 | | battle, unfortunately your low HP and status | Macca: 500 | | effects remain too. On the plus side his HP | EXP: 10,000 | | is rediculously low, so if you used any | | | physical boosting spells last battle it'll pay | Physical.....N/A | | off. To add to the advantages, his MP quickly | Fire.........N/A | | runs out and he's left with nothing but normal | Ice..........N/A | | weak attacks. If you can win the previous | Electricity..N/A | | battle you can surely win this one. | Force........N/A | | | Almighty.....N/A | | | Expel........Void | | | Death........Void | | | Curse........Void | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the fight you receive the Yahirono Himoragi. Head South for a quick scene, then save your game. Head all the way back to Yuko at the East entrance to the park. Watch the scene and make your choices, they will affect your Reason. The next optional boss fight is now available, if you have not beaten the four horsemen then skip past the tabbed section. Return to the central area of the park and go all the way through it again to the far West side, there is a door on the West wall go through it and unlock the way to the West park entrance. Head to the North part of this area and into the door to have your Candelabrum start reacting. o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o-------------------------------------------o The Harlot | | Another battle where you must rely on | HP: 5000 | | magic, this battle also relies on being | MP: 2000 | | able to withstand Electricity magic. So | Macca: 4000 | | in other words equipping the Narukami | EXP: 8000 | | Magatama is a minumum, but to ensure | | | a win, fuse a Feng Huang demon who drains | Physical.....Repel | | electricity, whcih will guarentee the | Fire.........N/A | | boss wasting many turns. Boost your | Ice..........N/A | | magic attack and use whatever generic | Electricity..Drain | | non-elec spells you have, while you can | Force........N/A | | try and drop some -nda spells, the boss | Almighty.....N/A | | will use Dragon's Eye and Dekunda fairly | Expel........Void | | often. The battle will likely take a bit | Death........Void | | longer than most battles, so be sure you | Curse........Void | | are fully stocked with MP recovery items. | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle you will receive the Candelabrum of Beauty. Return and save your game. Head back to Asakusa via the terminal. Watch a scene with Hijiri and head to Ikebukuro. Go all the way to the top of the Mantra HQ to see another scene in Gozu-Tennoh's chamber. Afterwards return to the first floor and go to the area right beside the East exit, talk to the demon here and he will tell you something about Kabukicho. Return to a terminal and head to Kabuchiko Prison. Run to the top floor, save and head North for a quick scene. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Black Frost | | This battle isn't too hard at all if you | HP: 2950 | | prepare, simply equip the Anathema Magatama | MP: 2500 | | and fuse a demon or two with death protection | Macca: 10,000 | | and he'll be a pushover. Since his strength | EXP: 5000 | | against physical is about 90%, use some magic | | | boosts and rely on electrical magic like | Physical.....Strong | | Ziodyne which works particularly well. Also | Fire.........Void | | keep in mind he has absolutely no way to | Ice..........Drain | | remove his -nda effects or you -kaja effects | Electricity..N/A | | so go nuts with those spells until he's as | Force........N/A | | weak as a regular enemy. You won't even need | Almighty.....N/A | | protection from death if he can't hit you. | Expel........Void | | | Death........Repel | | | Curse........Void | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o You received the Magatama: Satan Return to the terminal in Asakusa for another scene with Hijiri. Choose to chase after him. Watch the scene when you arrive, then leave the room. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Specter (x3) | | The final battle against the persistant | HP: 700 | | Specter is here, and it's a battle of physical | MP: 500 | | prowess. Here's how to win. From the very | Macca: 1000 | | beginning of the battle do not even attack, | EXP: 1500 | | use absolutely every -nda and -kaja spell you | | | have (except for magic boosting ones.) If | Physical.....N/A | | a character's turn comes who doesn't have any | Fire.........Repel | | to use do not attack, just pass. The idea | Ice..........Repel | | here is that the Specters will use Last Resort | Electricity..Repel | | and kill themselves if they start taking | Force........Repel | | damage, so you want to set it up so that you | Almighty.....N/A | | can kill one in a single turn, meaning it | Expel........Void | | get the chance to explode. After pumping your | Death........Void | | attack and reducing their defense start | Curse........N/A | | picking them off one at a time, being sure not | Nerve........Void | | to leave any damaged without finishing the, | Mind.........Void | | (though keep in mind being hit by a couple of | | | Last Resort's isn't too big of a deal.) | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Head North after the battle and exit the netowrk. On the world map open the cube to the South to find 5000 Macca, then proceed North to the Amala Temple. o----------o o--------------o o-| I - xxii |----------------------------------------(Fw016)-| Amala Temple | o----------o o--------------o -- Items: - Light Ball - Megido Rock - Bead - Life Stone - Life Stone - Revival Bead - Medicine - Bead - Blessed Fan - Bead - Life Stone - Life Stone - Life Stone Head forward to the fork and a voice will speak to you. Once it finishes go West and save your game, then head North. After a scene you will be introduced to the three pyramids. You must complete all three of them to progress so head to the centre of the rea and start with the Black Temple to the West. -- Black Temple When you first enter the temple, quickly run to the Northeast corner of the first room to find a cube containing Light Ball. Enter the room to the West and check the Southwest corner for a cube and a Megido Rock. Return to the front hall then head East, and save your game. From the terminal go North as far as you can, then West as far as you can, then South as far as you can to find a Mystical Chest. Go back North and head East into the next room (not all the way East.) If you go South in this room and turn around to face North you will see a large blue light coming up from the floor. Walk into the blue light. In the next room run South and into the next blue light pillar. On this floor, run forward and examine the black torch, when you are asked to put it out choose yes. Take the blue light pillar back. Without moving after arriving on this floor look West. You will see a number of doors, enter the door second from the left, meaning the second door you would pass when moving North. Inside jump down the large hole, the ground should collapse when you land leaving you two floors below. Head North and get the cube containing Bead. Down at the South end is a save point, after saving just North of the door you'll find the boss. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Aciel | | Start this battle by equipping the most | HP: 8000 | | powerful Magatama you have with resistance | MP: 2000 | | against physical attacks. He will have a | Macca: 10000 | | fairly generic pattern of using Tempest most | EXP: 5000 | | of the time. You'll have to fight this one | | | physically, while he sin't noted as having a | Physical.....N/A | | strength, he does actually reduce physical | Fire.........Strong | | damage by about 20%, but once you start | Ice..........Strong | | pumping your attack power you won't really | Electricity..Strong | | notice. He is able to cast Dekunda but | Force........Strong | | doesn't do it all that often. Your main | Almighty.....N/A | | defensive tip here is having Attack Mirrors in | Expel........Void | | your inventory. He will start casting MP | Death........Repel | | draining spells on one of his turns, this is | Curse........Void | | an indication that he will use Sol Niger on | Nerve........Void | | the next one. While you can't really protect | Mind.........Void | | yourself against this attack (which puts your | | | entire party to 1 HP) you can protect against | | | the normal attack he will always use right | | | after to pick off one of your characters, who | | | could easily be the main character. So if you | | | see him start draining your MP, use an Attack | | | Mirror on the next turn. Otherwise skills | | | like Focus work great and given time, that | | | 8000 HP will deplete faster than you think. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o You can choose to either exit via the light in front of you or go around to the East, get a Mystical Chest, and exit manually. When outside return to the centre and enter the North Temple. -- White Temple Enter the white temple and immediately head to the Northeast corner to save your game. Afterward enter the room beside the terminal to find a cube containing Life Stone x2. The next section will net you some items, but lead you right back to the beginning in the end so I've tabbed it in order to give you the option of just choosing to complete the dungeon quicker, skip it if you wish. Head to the Northwest corner of this area now (you have to go back down and around.) Enter the most Northwestern door and you will be teleported. Leave the room and go North into the next one to be teleported again. Go to the Northwest corner of this room to find a Mystical Chest, then exit to East door to be teleported again. Enter the door to the West. When you teleport, head West into the next room. The Northwest cube contains Revival Bead, the Northeast has a monster-in-a- box. Leave the room via the West door. Exit the room you end up in and leave to notice you are once again in the front hall. Head to the again to the Northwest most room and enter to be teleported. Head North to the next teleport and exit East for another teleport once again. This time leave the room through the North door and enter the Northeast room. Grab the cubes containing Medicine and Bead. Leave the room to notice you are once again at the start. Head to the Northwest room to get teleported. Exit North and into the North room for another teleport, then exit East to be teleported again. Now leave the room via the North door and enter the Southeast room. Proceed up the yellow light pillar. Another optional treasure: Run towards the yellow light pillar only to be teleported. Leave the room you appear in through the West door and go North. Once you are teleported, go North, then West. Leave this room via the North exit, but immediately turn around and go back in, you will be teleported. You should land in a hallway, turn around and grab the cube containing Blessed Fan. Run towards the yellow pillar and be teleported. Leave to the West and head North. Leave North and head West. Leave through the East door. Leave through the West door. Grab the Mystical Chest and leave through the East door, then turn around and go back in. Leave through the East door. Leave through the North door and headd West. From here you can now take the ywllow pillar of light. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Aciel | | Here's an odd battle for sure. You'll be | HP: 2700 | | fighting against four unique (blobs) each with | MP: 1000 | | their own elemental protperties and | Macca: 1000 | | weaknesses. Now how do you manage to keep | EXP: 1800 | | track of each one? You don't, physical is the | | | way to go here. There's a few things to note | Physical.....N/A | | first though, to start if you kill all the | Fire.........N/A | | little helpers, the main one will summon them | Ice..........N/A | | back, and if you kill the main one the helpers | Electricity..N/A | | will summon him back. The solution to this | Force........N/A | | is an all own speed beating once you've | Almighty.....N/A | | prepared, which leads to the second point: He | Expel........Void | | has absolutely no way to stop you from using | Death........Void | | all the -nda and -kaja spells you want so go | Curse........Void | | nuts, you'll need them considering you'll have | Nerve........Void | | to be able to knock them off quick. Each one | Mind.........Void | | only has a moderate amount of life so you'll | | | probably find this one similar albeit a bit | (Stats for summoned | | more challenging than the recent Specter | bosses below) | | battle. Once you have control with all your | | | kaja bonuses, finding the right way to quickly | | | eliminate him is all you really have left to | | | figure out. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | | | Tharmus Luvah Urizen Urthona | | HP: 1300 HP: 1300 HP: 1300 HP: 1300 | | MP: 300 MP: 300 MP: 300 MP: 300 | | Macca: 1000 Macca: 1000 Macca: 1000 Macca: 1000 | | EXP: 1800 EXP: 1800 EXP: 1800 EXP: 1800 | | Repel: Ice Repel: Force Repel: Fire Repel: Elec | | Weak: Fire Weak: Elec Weak: Ice Weak: Force | | | o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o You received the Magatama: Adama Leave the temple through the beam of light, and head to the final temple on the East side. -- Red Temple Enter the temple and head through the door just North of you. The following will net you a treasure and return you to this area: Go East and enter the door in the next room. Proceed to the Northeast corner of this room, you will notice when you step into the shadow that the whole area changes, that's ok. Continue to the Northeast corner and go through the door. In the next area there is a Mystical Chest, pick it up and exit this room through the Southwest door. Now go to the Southeast door and enter it, you will find in the room just past it there is a large lighted area, step into it to be returned to the normal world. Exit through the West door and you'll notice you are back at the beginning. Go though the North door in the middle of the area. Exit West, then South to find a cube containing Bead. Head East and East again, then North. Head through the door to the West. Continue West until you reach the wall, then go North through the door. Continue North until you reach the wall and go East through the door. In this area there are five doors on your right (South) side. Enter the fourth door that you pass. Go directly South and turn to the West. If you take a few steps forward you'll notice you are beside a large red pillar of light, take it to the next floor. Proceed through the South door, then West door, (use the save terminal located at the South door here) then the North door. You must continue through the North door but in order to do so you will be taken to the shadow world. Do it regardless. In this room exit West and get the cube containing Life Stone x3. Take the East exit out of this room. Go South then West to find a light that will return you to the normal world. When it does, go out the North door, then the East door. Now be careful not to step on any shadows for this part: Take the followig doors, South, Southeast, Southwest. Look at the West wall and you will see three doors, take the middle door. A few steps forward you will notice you are right next to the red light pillar, go inside it. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Skadi | | The first thing to note obviously is the | HP: 4000 | | immunity to physical attacks, so hopefully you | MP: 3000 | | have a strong magic arsenel with you. Use | Macca: 10,000 | | the normal stat boosting magic but keep one | EXP: 5000 | | thing in kind, though it isn't common she can | | | use two turns to negate all bad effects on her | Physical.....Drain | | and all good effects on you at once which can | Fire.........N/A | | be rather devastating so don't rely too much | Ice..........N/A | | on them. Stick with magic boost, normally | Electricity..N/A | | good ones like Fog Breath really aren't that | Force........N/A | | effective here. The most important thing | Almighty.....N/A | | however is recognizing the buildup to her | Expel........Void | | ultimate attack. Because she has this, War | Death........Void | | Cry is a spell you're going to want to be | Curse........Void | | using through the battle before she even gives | Nerve........Void | | any indication just to be prepared. When she | Mind.........Void | | is going to use it she will always use do the | | | same thing one turn before, boost her physical | | | attack twice. You have two options on your | | | next turn knowing that Earthquake is coming: | | | Use War Cry to negate the effects she just got | | | and weather the blow or, if you have one, use | | | an attack mirror to reflect it back as her. | | | She won't get hurt but neither will you. | | | Near the end of the battle she'll start | | | up to five press turn icons per round so | | | that is your indication she is low on HP, move | | | in for the kill. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Enter the beam of light to exit the temple. Approach the large upside down pyramid and examine it to trigger a scene. Certain scene may occur here depending on your current Reason. If you choose to dump Hijiri, the Musubi flag will be turned on. Once the scene ends, another quick one will occur when you move. Afterwards head South and save your game, then take the terminal to Mifunashiro. o-----------o o-------------o o-| I - xxiii |----------------------------------------(Fw017)-| Mifunashiro | o-----------o o-------------o -- Items: - Magic Mirror - Life Stone - Life Stone - Medicine When you reach Mifunashiro, head North and enter the main area that was previously blocked off. When you reach a fork, folloe the path to the very bottom to find a cube containing Magic Mirror. Go back up one level and exit though the door to the North. Descend the ladder. Head as far South as you can, then go West. When you reach the bottom of the slope enter the terminal on your left and save your game. Leave the terminal and follow the path North, through the door and down the stairs. At the bottom get the cube with Life Stone x2 inside. There's also a Mystical Chest somewhat hidden by the ladder. Exit South and follow the path, a scene will occur. After keep going until it splits in two directions, take the left (West) path and examine the Manikin to get a Medicine, then take the right (East) path. Enter the door at the end and step into the light. Watch the scene. If Chiaki asks you a question and you agree, the Yosuga flag is turned on. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Gabriel | | You'll battle three bosses at once here, but | HP: 3000 | | their individual HP totals don't add up to | MP: 1500 | | much more than a normal boss. Magic attacks | Macca: 4000 | | are somewhat useless though still usable. | EXP: 6000 | | Most of the time they will cast an anti- | | | physical shield on themselves so that you will | Uriel | | be unable to attack without having it thrust | HP: 3000 | | back into your face, however the same one will | MP: 1000 | | use an anti magic shield, or attack now and | Macca: 3000 | | then so that's your cue to attack. Power up | EXP: 2000 | | your physical and power down everything they | | | have, since they have to way to counter or | Raphael | | remove it everything is fair game here. Once | HP: 3000 | | you're set up take out Uriel first (the | MP: 1000 | | healer) followed by Raphael then Gabriel. | Macca: 3000 | | Elemental protections are very helpful in this | EXP: 2000 | | battle as they will use elemental spells that | | | target your entire party. Given they only | Physical.....N/A | | have 3000 HP each, at full power with a focus | Fire.........Strong | | it should not take you longer than two press | Ice..........Strong | | turns each. | Electricity..Strong | | | Force........Strong | | | Almighty.....N/A | | | Expel........Repel | | | Death........Repel | | | Curse........Void | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle watch another scene. For one particular Reason, you will fight another boss battle. Personally I have not fought it so I cannot give many tips, but the following are his stats: o---------------------------o | | | Futomimi | | HP: 5500 | | MP: 2000 | | Macca: 10,000 | | EXP: 10,000 | | | | Physical.....Strong | | Fire.........N/A | | Ice..........N/A | | Electricity..N/A | | Force........N/A | | Almighty.....N/A | | Expel........Void | | Death........Void | | Curse........Void | | Nerve........Void | | Mind.........Void | | | o---------------------------o You will be transported back outside the room. Head back to the nearest terminal and set sail for Ginza. Head to Nyx's Lounge and speak with lady Nyx, then exit Ginza. You need to reach Yurakucho Station which as far as I can see cannot be reached any other way than crossing the bridge to the East and going all the way around on the highway again. The station is North of the tower on the West side of the map, once you reach the tower the station is very easy to find by just going North. o----------o o-------------------o o-| I - xxiv |-----------------------------------(Fw018)-| Yurakucho Station | o----------o o-------------------o -- Items: - Muscle Drink - Medicine - Bead - Life Stone - Life Stone - Bead - Soma Droplet - Life Stone - Life Stone - Life Stone - Life Stone - Life Stone - Candelabrum of Godliness If you've defeated the fiends up to this point, entering will cause the Candelabrum to flicker wildly. o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o-------------------------------------------o Trumpeter | | When the battle starts the Trumpeter will | HP: 11,000 | | introduce you to one of his two unique | MP: 5000 | | skills, which is the Holy Melody, a skill | Macca: 4000 | | that fully heals whoever happens to have | EXP: 8000 | | the lowest HP to max. Second to this is | | | the Evil Melody which will kill whoever | Physical.....N/A | | happens to have the lowest HP. His other | Fire.........N/A | | skills really don't mean much so focus | Ice..........N/A | | on his unique two. First of all he will | Electricity..N/A | | use the Holy Melody on turn 1, the Evil | Force........N/A | | Meoldy on turn 8, then switch between | Almighty.....N/A | | them every four turns after that. At the | Expel........Void | | beginning focus on using -nda and -kaja | Death........Void | | spells, then once you are adequetly | Curse........Void | | pumped up, switch to physical attacks. | Nerve........Void | | To deal with his attacks, here is a very | Mind.........Void | | effective strategy, credit goes to | | | IKelley for coming up with it. Use your | | | fourth character as some weak demon you | | | have, now whenever he uses the Evil | | | Melody it will be killed. Revive it with | | | a weak Revive spell that only gives a | | | couple HP. Now right before the next | | | interval of four turns comesup, summon | | | the weak 1 HP demon into battle and it | | | will be hit by the Holy Melody, healing | | | it to max HP. Rinse and repeat. | | | | | o-------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle you will receive the Candelabrum of Godliness. Head down to the next floor via the staircase leading East. Use a light skill and open the cubes to find Muscle Drink, Medicine, Bead and the South-most one has a monster in it. Go back upstairs and down the West staircase. take the Northern set of tracks and follow them West. Through the hole you will find a spirit looking for a demon. If you give him a demon he will dig for treasure. Beofre giving him a demon note you will not get it back. If the demon's strength is 21 or more it takes 7 phases of Kagutsuchi to finish, and 10 if the strength is less. After you will get to choose two of the four treasures: - 10,000 Macca - Kimon Stone - Great Chakra - Sapphire One thing to note is that you will get the Kimon Stone no matter what, so don't make it one of your choices. Head back East again, and this time take the South set of tracks to the West. Go through the hole on your left, when you come to a 4-way split head East and save your game. When you're ready continue SOuth from the fork and go down the hill. At the bottom go West and follow the path to reach a cube containing Life Stone x2. Head back up the ladder, when you reach the fork again head South and down the hill. At the bottom take the path East this time and descend the ladder. Leave the room and you'll come to a fork. Go North and enter the door, you'll find another big slide. When you land go directly ahead of you to find a room with a Bead inside. Leave the room and head North to the next door and descend the ladder. Go down the hall and stop at the save terminal along the way. Go through the door to the North of the terminal. At the path fork head North then go down the slide. When you reach the bottom you'll once again be pulled through the floor. Head through the South door when you land, open the cube to fight a battle. Keep going and you'll find a cube with a Soma Droplet. Go through the door and head North this time, climb the ladder and then the next one. When you reach the main floor again, exit the door and go South at the 4-way split, then West at the next one, then North at the next one, then South at the next one and down the slide. At the bottom grab the Mystical Chest and attempt to go West. You will again be pulled down below. When you land head West through the door and North at the first branch, in this room you will find a mystical chest. Return to the hallway and continue West and go up one ladder, and another on the next floor. When you reach the large area floor again, go straight South to find yet another ladder and ascend it. On this floor when you reach a fork, go left (South) and save your game. From there go North and climb the ladder. Go South and follow the tracks back to the station platform, go up the stairs to the main terminal entrance. Before leaving head South from the exit to find a Mystical Chest. Finally leave the station out to the world map. On the world map head South to find a cube containing Life Stone x5. At this point, if you got the Kimon Stone then you can head to Asakakusa and take the West exit past the collector's shop. Go Southwest to the station, and up to the North to find the North temple. There is an event and a fight that occurs in there. (Apologies for not being more detailed, but I wanted to be sure it was at least mentioned.) Go North form the exit of the Yurakucho Tunnel and enter the Diet Building. o---------o o---------------o o-| I - xxv |----------------------------------------(Fw019)-| Diet Building | o---------o o---------------o -- Items: - Life Stone - Life Stone - Life Stone - Smoke Ball - 3000 Macca - Megido Rock - Bead - Soma Droplet - Yahirono Himorogi Head forward when you enter and a quick scene occurs. Continue forward up the stairs and into the terminal to save your game. Leave the terminal and go around the the back of the stairs to find a cube containing Life Stone x3. Go down the stairs and try and go through the West door, a scene will occur and you will be attacked. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Surt | | This battle will seem unbelievably cheap at | HP: 5000 | | first, and to be honest, it really is. His | MP: 3500 | | attacks are brutally damaging (400+) and he | Macca: 5000 | | uses Dekunda over and over like there's no | EXP: 8000 | | tomorrow. Luckily there's a trick that will | | | virtually guarentee you victory and it's very | Physical.....Strong | | simple. Just ingest the Gehenna Magatama and | Fire.........Drain | | start the fight. Everyone who has immunity to | Ice..........N/A | | fire has it easy here. Virtually every attack | Electricity..N/A | | he has including his normal attack are fire | Force........N/A | | based (the one exception being Tempest) so | Almighty.....N/A | | load up on defense boosting spells and you | Expel........Void | | are virtually invulnerable. You can cast | Death........Void | | any elemental magic except fire, but to be | Curse........Void | | honest this battle can be won with four casts | Nerve........Void | | of Tarukaja and just hitting the triangle | Mind.........Void | | button to auto-battle. The main character | | | will likely be the only one left standing, but | | | it's a great oppurtunity to hit the fridge or | | | something. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o It's a good idea to save your game, then return and go through the door the boss tried to protect. Proceed down the hallway, then turn South and enter the second door to find a cube with Smoke Ball inside. Go back up and continue West up the stairs at the end of the hall. From the empty cube go North (but check out the East path it's kinda cool.) After going through the door take the first branch to your left (West.) As you run down this corridor you're going to pass two doors on the right (North), take the second one. In this hall run North and take the last door on your right (East.) You'll quickly come to a 4-way split, head North and go through the door. Run East and go right (South) at the fork, then immediately left (East) at the next one and go through the door. In this hall take the first left (North) then the next right (East) then the next right (South.) Go through the door. There are a number of doors on your right (West) here, enter the first and get the cube containing 3000 Macca. At the end enter the only door on your left (East) and you will be right at the save terminal, so save your game (the door is now unlocked.) Go back in and take the lowest door leading West. Run to the West end of the hall around behind the deception painting and head South. Go through the door to trigger a scene. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Surt | | Another magic battle awaits here since he has | HP: 2500 | | a complete drain on all physical attacks. | MP: 747 | | He has no real specific element he focuses on | Macca: 5000 | | (maybe fire) but mind protection is more | EXP: 8000 | | important to digest a Magatama beforehand that | | | has mind immunities. He is easily able to | Physical.....Drain | | cast Dekunda at will so focus on magic | Fire.........N/A | | enhancing -kaja spells to start then use | Ice..........N/A | | magic you have at your disposal, which spell | Electricity..N/A | | really doesn't matter that much. He has the | Force........N/A | | ability to summon a healer with Gathering | Almighty.....N/A | | that will cast Mediarama every turn so | Expel........Void | | eliminate it as fasst as possible when it | Death........Void | | it appears (it has a weakness to ice.) The | Curse........Void | | most frustrating thing here will be the panic | Nerve........Void | | status so the more demons you have with | Mind.........Void | | protection to it the better. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Go back and save your game before continuing. From where you fought the boss head East, and go around the walkway into the door. Head West until you reach a fork, then head South and into the door. Ignore the first left (North) path and take the second one. Go North and continue through the door at the fork. In this hall there are nine doors on your right (East) you want to enter door number eight, or the second to last door. Grab the cube containing Megido Rock and leave. Go North and head left (West) at the fork. Follow this path all the way to the end and enter the final door on your left (South.) Open the cube to receive Bead. Leave the room, head East and take the first path on your right (South.) After a quick little scene you'll come to a 4-way split, go West here and follow the path around the corner to the South. When you come to a fork go right (West) and once again you'll find the save terminal so save your game. Go back to the door you unlocked, head East and go through the South door. An event will trigger when you enter. There are a number of statues here and you must find the false one. Very easy, look at the reflections on the floor. Find the one that is has a stand reflecting, but no statue on it. That is the fake. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Mot | | Mot can be a very obnoxious boss if you | HP: 3500 | | aren't prepared, and even if you are sometimes | MP: 3000 | | it doesn't make a difference. It really does | Macca: 5000 | | not matter which Magatama you use, what | EXP: 8000 | | matters most are having two things: Dekaja and | | | one or two powerful electricity spells. The | Physical.....Strong | | boss relies on killing you by casting | Fire.........Void | | Megidoraon which you cannot protect against, | Ice..........Drain | | and boosting it with his -kaja boosts. Not | Electricity..Weak (1.5) | | only that he only takes 10% damage from | Force........Repel | | physical attacks, making them out of the | Almighty.....N/A | | question, and he'simmune to all elements | Expel........Void | | except his weakness electricity. Dekunda is | Death........Void | | another favourite of his so fight the battle | Curse........Void | | like so. Boost your magic to the max, keep | Nerve........Void | | tabs on his magic boosting and use Dekakaja | Mind.........Void | | after 3-4 of them. Use all the elec attacks | | | you have and heal every turn after he uses | | | Megidoraon. As long as you stay in control of | | | this battle and don't let his magic get too | | | high you will be ok. There is a chance he | | | will cast two Beast's Eye in one turn, two | | | Makakaja, and finally two Megidoraon. This | | | will wipe out your party and there's literally | | | nothing you can do. Frustrating, though rare. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Once this guy is dead don't forget to save! From where you fought the boss exit North from where you came, and when the path curves West take the first North branch you come to. At the top go left (West) at the fork and enter both rooms to find two Mystical Chests. Return to the boss area. Head East from the boss area and go up the stairs, follow the path to a door and enter. As you walk down the aisle a scene occurs at the end. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Mithra | | Easy battle here, really with a boss that has | HP: 4500 | | absolutely no physical immunities at this | MP: 3000 | | stage of the game 4500 HP is a joke. Equip | Macca: 5000 | | the Sophia Magatama beforehand to make your | EXP: 8000 | | main character virtually invincible, then | | | enter the battle. After two War Cry casts | Physical.....N/A | | there is no way you can die, so spend the rest | Fire.........N/A | | of the time boosting your attack and lowering | Ice..........N/A | | his defense. If you lose a demon or two to | Electricity..N/A | | his nstant kill spells don't sweat it, you | Force........N/A | | need one or two characters, after you're | Almighty.....N/A | | pumped up start focusing and using HP skills | Expel........Void | | and his 4500 HP will disappear faster than | Death........Void | | you think. If he happens to cast Debilitate | Curse........Void | | on you, a good Dekunda will take care of it. | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle take the West exit out of the hall, grab the Mystical Chest and go North at the fork. Save your game at the save terminal, return to the fork and head South. On the walkway grab the cube containing Soma Droplet, then enter the elevator and take it to 6F. Watch the scene when you arrive. If you do not stop Hikawa the Shikima Flag will be turned on, otherwise you will fight a boss. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Samael | | Pretty basic as far as bosses go, not too hard | HP: 8500 | | nor easy. Ingest a Magatama that protects | MP: 4000 | | against charm before going into battle, and | Macca: 10,000 | | use as many allies as you can that are immune | EXP: 9000 | | to status ailments in general. Use abilities | | | like Taunt and Provoke in conjunction with | Physical.....N/A | | Focus to dish out the 8500 damage you need, | Fire.........N/A | | nothing you've never done before. Watch out | Ice..........N/A | | mostly for God's Curse, but like I mentioned | Electricity..N/A | | eariler if you protected against it you'll be | Force........N/A | | fine, it's definetely his most dangerous | Almighty.....N/A | | spell. | Expel........Void | | | Death........Void | | | Curse........Void | | | Nerve........Void | | | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle watch the scene. Take the elevator back down and save your game. Now head to the Amala Temple. In the large outdoor area, examine the upside down pyramid when you're ready. If you're trying to get the special true demon ending you must complete the Fifth Kalpa at this point before continuing on in the game. When you're ready take the terminal to the second area of the Assembly of Nihilo and head towards the Obelisk. o----------o o-------------o o-| I - xxvi |----------------------------------------(Fw01A)-| The Obelisk | o----------o o-------------o -- Items: - Chakra Elixir Enter through the 'back' North door of the Obelisk. Follow the path down an elevator, in this area there is a cube hiding behind the large pole-like structure in the middle. It contains a Chakra Elixir, a reusable MP restoring item for battle. Leave and enter the Obelisk from the front. When you enter go North and ride the block to the next floor. There are Mystical Chests at the Northeast and Northwest corners of this area, and a lift to the next floor in the North-centre. Run around the edge to the South side and you'll find two lifts, take the block not the glowing white elevator. Step into the white light and choose to ascend. When you examine the object in front of you you will be taken to the Tower of Kagutsuchi. o-----------o o---------------------o o-| I - xxvii |--------------------------------(Fw01B)-| Tower of Kagutsuchi | o-----------o o---------------------o -- Items: - Float Ball - Bead - Megidola Rock - Bead - Attack Mirror - Earthstone - Netherstone - Life Stone - Life Stone - Life Stone - Soul-Return - Heavenstone After a scene you will start off on a moving block, ride it up to the platform. There are a numbe rof treaures you can collect, but they are all at dead ends so you'll eventually find your way back here. If you wish to collect them read the tabbed section: Take a look around this large room, you will see there are four main exits, North, South, East and West. Head to the middle of the West path and go West. Climb the stairs to 162F and open the door. In the cente of this area you'll find a door to enter and a block you can ascend that leads to a Mystical Chest and a cube containing Float Ball. Go back down the elevator, on this floor there is an elevator on the South side that will quickly return you to 160F. Take the North exit this time. Again climb the stairs to 162F and enter the door in the middle of the floor. The elevator will take you up to a room with a Mystical Chest and cube containing Bead. Return to 160F. Take the East exit this time. Headd to the small room the same way as before and get the Mystical Chest and cube with Soma Droplet. Return to 160F. Take the South exit out of the main room. Ride the elevator up you'll find just past the Manikins. Head North to the spewing thing in the middle and you can ride the entire platform section up. Head North to find a save terminal, head East from it to continue on. When you reach the top of the stairs and go through the door you'll find a path fork, take the one on your right (North) and head West. Follow this path all the way to the very end and go South. Ride the platform to a cube containing Megidola Rock. Go back North through the door, take a couple steps East and head South. Ride the black and enter the door on your left (East.) Head East until you've gone through two doors, then ascend the stairs to the West and ride the block to the next floor. Go along the path until you come to some stairs to the West. Ascend them and you'll find two blocks, ride the second one up. Head East and go down the stairs. Go back up the stairs to the West and take the first block up this time. There should now be three blocks in a row, run an S pattern to the third most Northern block and ride it up. Head West down the stairs back down to 186F. When you come to a fork, go North and get the cube containing Bead. Head back South and take the first branch left (East.) At the top of the stairs you'll find the three blocks again, you can't ride the North one, but you can ride the middle one. Take it down then head North, you'll see two staircases on either side of you. Descend the West one and head South down the elevator. Grab the Mystical Chest a few steps North and ride it back up. Return to where you had the stairs on either side of you and go North to find the elevator to the next floor. Head South and take the right (West) path and ride the blcok to a Mystical Chest. Go back and take the left (East) path and ride the block. When you get off you'll have two choices of blocks to take. Take the South one to find a terminal, save and return then take the West one. When you get off you'll notice you can go either East or West. If you want a Mystical Chest go East and follow it up an elevator. Either way return to this junction and go West. At the top of the stairs ride the block up to the next floor, then go South and take the elevator. There may be a boss fight here. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Ahriman | | This is Ahriman's first form. The Magatama | HP: 6000 | | want to ingest generally is just something | MP: 3000 | | physical protection, and no bad weaknesses | Macca: 10,000 | | attached to it. When the battle starts he | EXP: 10,000 | | will tell you about his game, rules that must | | | be followed during the battle. If any one | Physical.....N/A | | charater breaks these rules Ahriman will | Fire.........N/A | | immediately cast Hell's Call wiping them out | Ice..........N/A | | in a single hit. When the battle starts he'll | Electricity..N/A | | likely tell you you can't use physical attacks | Force........N/A | | which is ok, use it as an oppurtunity to cast | Almighty.....N/A | | all you best -nda spells like Fg Breath, War | Expel........Repel | | Cry and Taunt. When you've maxed them, knock | Death........Repel | | some magic off on him until he changes, then | Curse........Void | | start with the physical attacks. Use any | Nerve........Void | | oppurtunities you have for healing because he | Mind.........Void | | doesn't give you many. Near the end of the | | | battle he'll only let you use physical attacks | | | and won't change, so you'll see where those | | | -nda and -kaja spells came in handy. With | | | only 6000 HP you shouldn't have to worry about | | | him being in this stage for too long. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Ahriman | | After the 6000 HP are depleted he transforms | HP: 18,000 | | into this stage. All your -nda effects still | MP: 6000 | | remain so he should be really easy to hurt and | Macca: 10,000 | | then 18,000 HP should go down pretty fast. | EXP: 10,000 | | What makes him hard is his serious power, he | | | can cast unblockable spells like Magidolaon | Physical.....N/A | | and Apocalypse. If you don't War Cry his | Fire.........N/A | | magic power down, you can expect to be killed | Ice..........N/A | | for sure if he ever casts two of those spells | Electricity..N/A | | in one turn. Keep your HP at max all the time | Force........N/A | | and get off as much damage as you possibly can | Almighty.....N/A | | because when he gets close to death he will | Expel........Repel | | cast Dekunda and become very very dangerous. | Death........Repel | | I wouldn't even recommdn trying to get those | Curse........Void | | effects back on him, just start attacking like | Nerve........Void | | mad and hope you can manage to finish him off | Mind.........Void | | before he finishes you off. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle watch the scene and you will receive Earthstone. Return back down and save your game. From where you fought the boss, head West and go North to the elevator. On the next floor run South and ride the large elevator. Get off the elevator and go directly North to find a Fountain of Life. If you did not fight Ahriman, then you can go to the Northwest room o find an angel who will activate the Ahriman tombstone in the Labyrinth of Amala Burial Chamber, so that it becomes possible to fight him. Either way from the Fountain of Life head East. Cast Liftoma (or don't) and go Northeast across the damage floor and get the cube containing Attack Mirror. Return to the Fountain of Life and go West. Go West as far as you can until you come to a wall with only a North and South fork, North like I said leads to that angel, head South. Immediately after going through the door run West to where the cube is but don't open it, there's a monster-in-a-box. Go SOuth from the cube until you come to a path leading West. Take it and follow it North to an elevator. On this floor follow the path North (without entering any doors) and you'll reach an open area with a door leading to a save terminal. This is a normal terminal you'll notice so you're free to go back and do some shopping, you'll be able to come back directly to this one. From the terminal head South, you'll come to an area where you can walk across the air on magic blocks, but you cannot backtrack. The tabbed section will lead you two a couple of out of the way treasures if you wish. Begin walking across them, ignore the first two left and right exits you come to, and take your second left (East). Go thorugh the door and head Northeast. The first chance you get to go North across a magic block take it. On the platform on the other side you will be pulled down below. When you land, cast Liftoma and Lightoma then go as far South as you can. When you hit a wall go West to find a Mystical Chest in the middle of your path (go no further than the chest!) Turn around, go back all the way East, then head North until you find a branch that leads East. Take it and you will be pulled down once again. Go South when you land and open the Mystical Chest. Check your map and you'll see you've been here before. The elevator leading back up to the save terminal is on the West side. Take it. Head South fro mthe terminal and begin to cross the pit on the magic blocks. Ignore the first left and right paths you pass by, and take your second left (East) through the door. On this sold platform go to the East side of it (don't cross any magic blocks) and go South. The magic block path leading South off of the East side of this platform should take you to a door. When you enter it and go up the stairs you'll find an elevator that takes you down, a couple steps South of that is an elevator to take you up. The camera angles are weird here so use your map if you have to. Go up the first ramp to the top, then head North up the second ramp (the camera angle changes.) At the top of the second ramp is a path fork. Take the one leading down and get on the block at the bottom. From there get on the other block and it will lead you to a Mystical Chest. Return to the fork at the top of the second ramp and go up and enter the door (enter the door, not take the elevator.) Run to the door on the West side and prepare yourself. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Noah | | You must absolutely not enter this battle | HP: 8000 | | wihtout a sufficient elemental magical | MP: 4000 | | arsenel. Don't let the stats to the side fool | Macca: 10,000 | | you, he has elemental immunities, but they | EXP: 10,000 | | vary by turn. Here's how it goes, every turn | | | he will cast Aurora, effectively changing his | Physical.....N/A | | weakness (not technically a weakness, but | Fire.........N/A | | it won't be repelled.) It starts as ice, then | Ice..........N/A | | fire, then force, then electricity and loops. | Electricity..N/A | | If you ever lose track of what his current | Force........N/A | | vulnerability is, then just pay attention to | Almighty.....N/A | | the spell he casts, if it's a fire spell he | Expel........Repel | | is weak to ice etc. Use your most powerful | Death........Repel | | magic, and in between cast things like War | Curse........Void | | Cry, Fog Breath, Taunt, and Makakaja. This | Nerve........Void | | boss is very slow and very predicatbale, he | Mind.........Void | | only really gets one turn since Aurora uses | | | up a press turn, so take it slow and avoid | | | doing anything rash. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Noah | | There are only three differences with his | HP: 15,000 | | second form and they are very minor: 1. His | MP: 5000 | | physical appearance. 2. His HP total. 3. The | Macca: 10,000 | | skills he starts to use after he's about half | EXP: 10,000 | | dead. Fight this battle exactly as you did | | | the first form. After awhile you'll start to | Physical.....N/A | | notice him casting Dominion now and then. It | Fire.........N/A | | sounds dangerous, but assuming you've used War | Ice..........N/A | | Cry a couple of times it's extremely weak and | Electricity..N/A | | nothing to worry about. Near the end he may | Force........N/A | | use Dekunda which can put a kink in your | Almighty.....N/A | | plan, but just use the more powerful -nda's | Expel........Repel | | again and hope he doesn't use it anywhere near | Death........Repel | | the same time as Dekaja. You can expect this | Curse........Void | | to be a very long battle, probably the longest | Nerve........Void | | you've fought yet. Considering the amount of | Mind.........Void | | magic you need to use and the time the battle | | | takes, I found the Chakra Elixir (infinite use | | | MP restore) was invaluable for the fight, so | | | if you picked it up don't forget that it's | | | still there. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle (or no battle) you receive the Netherstone. Leave the area and take the elevator at the top of the ramp to the next floor. At the top of the stairs speak to the demon to get the 'memory' of fighting Noah (making him appear in the Burial Chamber.) Go through the door and ride the elevator. When you get off the elevator, head West all the way as far as you can go, then go North through the door. Get the cube containing Life Stone x3 and return to the elevator. Head West and you'll find all you would expect from a normal town. Do whatever you must do before once again returning to the elevator. Head North and go up the elevator. Get prepared before proceeding. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Thor | | Sometimes it's nice to have an easy boss every | HP: 8000 | | once in awhile, especially in a final dungeon. | MP: 3000 | | Ingest a Magatama that has protection from | Macca: 5000 | | electricity for starters. In the battle begin | EXP: 200 | | by pumping your power and lowering his as | | | always. Begin hurting him with some not so | Physical.....N/A | | powerful attacks until you've dealt about 3500 | Fire.........N/A | | damage, then use one turn to Focus and charge | Ice..........N/A | | as much as possible. On the next turn release | Electricity..Repel | | everything you have and if you're strong | Force........N/A | | you may actually be able to kill him this turn | Almighty.....N/A | | the idea is that after half HP he begins | Expel........Repel | | using Dragon Eye and with five press turns he | Death........Void | | might not be such a pushover, but if he's | Curse........Strong | | dead before even getting that oppurtunity | Nerve........Void | | there's no problem. Even if he does survive | Mind.........Void | | your assault, there's no way it should take | | | more than 1 or 2 turns maximum to eliminate | | | him afterward. Too bad the EXP is pitiful. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Go back down and save your game in the little sho parea, heal if necessary. Return to where you fought Thor and go up the stairs on the right (West.) At the top you will be teleported. From where you appear head South, East, North, East and you should be at a fork. From there go South, you'll pass three branches leading East, take the middle one then go South until you are teleported. From where you appear go South and continue to go South at every oppurtunity you get until you are once again teleported. Head North, West, North, West. There are two paths leading South, take the second more Western one. Open the Mystical Chest. From the chest, head Northeast to be teleported again. Step onto the panel Northeast of where you appear to be teleported. When you land go South and you'll be teleported to the area past where you fought Thor. Turn around and step on the large elevator, choose to ride it. The elevator will go down and you can safely go back and save without having to do all that again. When you're ready take the elevator on the Sorth side of the room. Head up to the fork. Go West, North, East, South, East and save your game. Standing right outside the terminal door go: West, North, East, South (as far as you can go), East (through the door, as far as you can go), South, East, South, East. Ride the block up. Go West and run across the magical blocks to the next platform. Step on the North panel to be dropped down. When you land head as far as you can South, and take the giant door leading South to the outdoors. Follow the path around the dge of the tower and up the slope. When you reach the top take the North elevator on your right. At the top head up the ramp and enter the door. Inside, enter the door leading North and save your game. Head West through the door. There's some treasure to get if you wish: Go South and a path will appear, as you cross it you will be dropped down to the lower floor. From where you land go East, South, East and open the Mystical Chest. Go North and take the elevator up. South of the elevator is the save terminal again. Go West back to the large magic block area. Head West into the large magic block room. Head North and take the block path to the Northern plaform. When you reach it take the path that leads off the East edge to reach the platform in the middle. Go West off of it and the path will take you to the South platform. When you reach the South platform go North and take the block path. When you reach the West platform go in the door and take a few steps to be pulled down below. Now get ready, don't even move. This part is very dangerous so I've even provided a to-scale diagram. Look below, you will land on one of the two @ symbols. Your destination is the # symbol and X's represent teleports that will pull you below. The *'s show the safest path you can take. You can use the exact number of asterisks to count exactly how many panels you should move. One quick tip: None of the damage ground anywhere has a trap on it o-----o | o------o |* * * * * * | |* o---o * oo |* * * X * *| |X X * X X X *| |X * X * * *| |X * X * Xo-o |X @ * X * X |X @ * X * X |X X X X * Xo-o | * * * * | | * | |X * X X X | |X * o-----o | * |- # | | * * * * | | o-----o | | o-----o Go West and onto the teleporter. In this area go across the damage floor and open the cube to find a Soul-Return, this is an infinite use, in or out of battle full HP revive item. Very worth the effort. Head West to be transported. Head straight North until you hit the wall, then go West and take the elevator. Take the elevator on the next floor, then go South to once again find yourself at the save terminal. Save your game. Head West into the large magic block room. Head North and take the block path to the Northern plaform. When you reach it take the path that leads off the East edge to reach the platform in the middle. Go West off of it and the path will take you to the South platform. Proceed South and take the elevator up. Save your game (to the West) when you reach the top. Make sure you're ready before going through the door. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Baal Avatar | | Ingest the Djed Magatama before this battle, | HP: 13,000 | | no questions asked. Ball Avatar has the | MP: 5000 | | unbelievably cheap ability to turn your | Macca: 10,000 | | characters into a Fly which cannot be cured | EXP: 10,000 | | by any means, and makes them completely | | | useless. If any of your party members do not | Flauros | | have protection from curse, Baal will almost | HP: 6700 | | always target them first, you absolute need | MP: 3000 | | curse protection here. Besides that you will | Macca: N/A | | start the battle just attacking normally, | EXP: N/A | | don't even bother with skills yet. After a | | | bit of damage Baal will summon her comerades | Ose | | into the battle and be healed fully. Now if | HP: 6700 | | time to start using -nda and -kaja spells. | MP: 3000 | | Ose has Dekunda and will use it often, he is | Macca: N/A | | also the healer, he has to die first. You | EXP: N/A | | must kill the two helpers first so after Ose | | | is gone target Flauros. You can use as mant | Physical.....N/A | | -nda skills as you want once Ose is gone which | Fire.........N/A | | will make the battle much easier. As for | Ice..........N/A | | attacks, they usually use Expel or Almighty | Electricity..N/A | | based attacks, also Dragon Eye sometimes | Force........N/A | | (again, use by Ose, kill him.) When the two | Almighty.....N/A | | are gone Baal will use Beast Eye and attack | Expel........Repel | | with physical attacks and almighty, but at | Death........Void/Strong| | this point it won't be much of a fight since | Curse........Void/Strong| | she's alone. Use physical attacks to take | Nerve........Void/Strong| | them down, your most powerful HP skills, as | Mind.........Void/Strong| | well as Focus to pump them up. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle you will receive the Heavenstone. Return and save your game. From where Baal Avatar was, go North, enter the door and be pulled below. When you land ride the elevator in front of you. At the top make your way South to the next elevator. Just ahead of you to the North is an elevator, before riding it take the path leading Northwest and follow it to the end to finda save terminal. If you were wondering when the point of no return was, this is pretty much it. If you have any reason to go back and do other things now's the time to do it. You won't be brought back to this exact terminal, but you'll be pretty close to the end (that little area with the shop and heal fountain to be exact.) When you're ready return to the elevator in the centre and ascend. At the top, put the three stones in however you wish. Ride the elevator to Kagutsuchi. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Kagutsuchi | | Ingest your strongest Magatama as long as it | HP: 20,000 | | doesn't leave you with any terrible weaknesses | MP: 7000 | | (I.E. Gaea = No) Kagutsuchi is your enemy | Macca: 10,000 | | here. Cast all your -nda and -kaja spells | EXP: 10,000 | | without hesitation, he has Dekunda but will | | | rarely use it. This form's entire purpose is | Physical.....N/A | | building up to Full phase in order to unleash | Fire.........N/A | | it's strongest attack. In order to prevent | Ice..........N/A | | that, you need to eliminate it by basically | Electricity..N/A | | using your strongest attacks, either physical | Force........N/A | | or magical since he has no real immunities. | Almighty.....N/A | | After you've done a certain amount of damage | Expel........Void | | he changes forms, all -nda effects stay and | Death........Void | | second form won't use Dekunda so don't let him | Curse........Void | | change until you've got everything set up the | Nerve........Void | | way you want it. | Mind.........Void | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Kagutsuchi | | Talk about dangerous, he goes from using a | HP: 40,000 | | powerful attack every eight turns, to using a | MP: 10,000 | | twice as powerful attack every other turn. | Macca: 100 | | You need to set up a system. First of all if | EXP: 10,000 | | you haven't fully War Cry'd him you're in | | | big trouble. You're also going to want to | Physical.....N/A | | pump your own defense. Here's how I'd go | Fire.........N/A | | about doing it: On the turn he attacks with | Ice..........N/A | | Infinite Light, heal all your characters to | Electricity..N/A | | full and attack with everything you have. On | Force........N/A | | the next turn Focus with everyone and get | Almighty.....N/A | | ready for the coming attack, when he uses it | Expel........Void | | unleash your Focus-boosted attacks and heal | Death........Void | | fully. If you got the uber Pixie from the | Curse........Void | | Fifth Kalpa, you're going to want her now as | Nerve........Void | | your healer. This goes on for awhile, the | Mind.........Void | | moment you start to wear down you're dead, | | | because he isn't going to stop. Once he's | | | about half dead he'll begin using Dragon | | | Eye and normal attacks along with magic. If | | | you've used Fog Breath on him, this phase | | | will actually be easier than the first phase. | | | Stick with the same plan, but obviously | | | compensate for any massive healing you'll | | | need to do. If you're looking for demons | | | to help you win either parts of this battle | | | I'd recommend all the four Rider Fiends for | | | their incredible immunities, though the | | | downside is you may have to level them up. | | | Good luck. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o And that may be it. Enjoy your ending unless you finsihed the Fifth Kalpa. If you did finsih the Kalpa then there's just one more thing to do. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Lucifer | | The Magatama you want for this fight is of | HP: 65,535 | | course going to be Masakados. Lucifer is | MP: 65,535 | | extremely powerful, has an extremely huge. | Macca: N/A | | amount of HP, and your attacks are virtually | EXP: N/A | | meaningless. Everything you'd expect. You | | | will have virtually no chance of winning | Physical.....25% | | unless you have the following two skills on | Fire.........25% | | your main character: Pierce and Freikugel. | Ice..........25% | | Your main source of damage is going to be | Electricity..25% | | from Freikugel. Pierce is a skill that makes | Force........25% | | it so you deal full damage regardless of the | Almighty.....25% | | enemies protection. The only other demon who | Expel........Void | | can learn this skill is Vile Girimehkala. | Death........Void | | You'll need to create this demon and fuse him | Curse........Void | | so you can transfer the skill on to everyone | Nerve........Void | | in your party (and yes, this means if you are | Mind.........Void | | using Dante, drop him immediately.) I don't | | | think it needs to be said, but obviously you | | | are going to want to cast War Cry and Fog | | | Breath for sure here, Debilitate as well as | | | the more useful -kaja abilities. No matter | | | how strong you are you're going to lose | | | a demon at some point, so be sure someone | | | has Samrecarm, and that you got the Soul- | | | Return from the tower of Kagutsuchi. Level | | | 99, and 40 for stats is recommended here but | | | the battle can be won at lower with the | | | proper setup. Make absolutely sure you've | | | got him weakened as much as possible by the | | | time he reaches low health, because when he | | | starts using Root of Evil, even though it | | | cannot be weakened in any way, you're going | | | to have to kill him as fast as possible here | | | because there's no way you will last long if | | | he is able to keep using this. Do not go | | | into this battle unprepared, don't forget | | | for every attempt you have to fight the boss | | | of the game again. How you choose to win | | | this battle is up to you. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Now sit back and enjoy the ending. You beat the game. Good job! d--(o_O)--b ****************************************************************************** * Labyrinth of Amala (La000) * ****************************************************************************** o--------o o-------------o o-| II - i |-------------------------------------------(La001)-| First Kalpa | o--------o o-------------o -- Items: - Chakra Drop - Bead - Chakra Drop - Deathstone - Lu Incense Head directly North until you find a door but do not enter, instead go around the side of it and continue North through the door on the other side. When you come to a fork go East to find a cube containing Chakra Drop. Return to the fork and head West. Take the first North branch you find and it will lead you a cube containing Bead. You'll notice this cube is beside a large gate, run around in a circle so that you are on the other side of the gate. Look at the South wall, there is a small section that looks as if it has a water effect to it, pass through this wall simply by walking into it. Descend the ladder at the end of the hall. Enter the West room abd get the Mystical Chest, then go back up the ladder. Remember the first door just North of the entrance? Return there now and head directly East from it. In the East area, head South to start and you'll come to a little area with a large door to the South, a shday broker who will sell you a demon to the North (a very important one you need for the enxt Kalpa), and a soul who will give you hints about fiends to the East. On the East side proceed up the hall to the North and enter the door at the North end. Make a right (East) at the fork and go all the way around to find a ladder, descend the ladder to B1F. Go South and enter the door to find yourself in a large room. There are traps all over the room so follow these directions exactly! Notice the floor is tiled with large square panels, use these as reference. Stand exactly one panel South from the door and run all the way to the West. Go South and West again to find a cube with a Chakra Drop. RUn directly East and fall down the hole. The exit to the smoke damaging area is in the centre of the West wall. When you're out of the smoke area, head South and follow it to a ladder leading up. Ascend it. At the top go out the door and walk exactly one panel North so you're in the actual room. Now walk one more panel North. Just for reference you should be standing so that IF (if means don't actually do it) you chose to walk forward one more panel, you'd have a wall on your left (West) and a gate on your right (East.) Anyway, walk one panel East and you should be beside a gate. From there, walk two panels North. Look to the West, see the door in front of you? Enter it. Open the two cubes containing Lu Incense and Deathstone. Examine the switch in the middle of the room to open a door on the other side of the gate. Leave the room. From the position where you appear after leaving the room, walk two panels East. Now walk one panel South. Walk one panel East and drop down. Grab the Mystical Chest you land beside and enter the door to the South to find a ladder. When you get to the top simply run straight North until you fall down again. Cross the damage floor to the West. When you get out, head North and climb the ladder. Exit the room and step one panel South of where you start. Move two panels East and go North to find the ladder you originally came down on. Return to 1F. When you reach the top, use your map to once again navigate to the first door, directly North of where you first came into the Kalpa. This time actually enter the door and climb down the ladder. Head South down the next ladder and run straight North. In the next, examine the peephole for a scene. You can now continue onto the second Kalpa. o---------o o--------------o o-| II - ii |-----------------------------------------(La002)-| Second Kalpa | o---------o o--------------o -- Items: - Tetraja Rock - Smoke Ball - Dekaja Rock - Bead - Deathstone - Chakra Pot - 250,000 Macca - Moon Key - Deathstone - Soma When you enter the second Kalpa, jump down the hole ahead of you. Head East when you land, you'll come upon a fork in the path. Go North. In the next room enter the door on the North wall, then the door on the West wall. In the next room go directly South into a room with a cube containing Tetraja Rock. Leave the room and follow the hall to the West. At the end, go through the door to the North. Enter the room to the East to find a cube with Smoke Ball inside. Head West and you'll find three doors in the row, take the one on your left (the West most door) and head South. Go as far South as you can until you reach a wall. Enter the door on your right (West.) Directly South is another cube containing Dekaja Rock. Leave the room and enter the one just beside (to the East) of the room you were just in. Follow the hallway around and when it comes to a fork, head East all the way to the end, then go North through the door. You will find a cube here with Bead. Go out the door and take a few steps West, then go into the next door leading North (which is just West of the room you were in.) Of the two doors on the West wall, take the upper (North) one. It leads to a Mystical Chest. Now check your map. You'll notice directly below you is a yellow arrow, whcih means a drop off point as well as another one just West of it. Navigate to the West one and drop down. Head directly West from where you land, in the wall is another ripple effect meaning you can pass through it. On the other side down the hall is a cube containing Deathstone. Take the North door, then in the next room enter the door to the West and climb the ladder. Run out the door and head North at the fork as far as you can go. When you reach the end go East to the door but don't enter it, then head South as far as you can go. At the bottom enter the door to the East that is right beisde you and drop down. Grab the Mystical Chest and leave the room. Again go into the West door and climb the ladder. Leave the room and head all the way North once again. At the end if you turn around you'll notice you're in the room with three doors on the South wall again. Go East until you reach the door but don't go through it. This time when you start heading South, immediately take the first banch East you come to (down a hall, not through a door, check your map.) As you go down the hall immediately take the first branch South and drop down. Here you can buy another demon for 30,000 Kalpa, this demon comes equipped with a spell for Healing the HP for each of your party members to full as well as a spell to revive with full HP, very very worth it. You've done it a million times, but return once again to the room with three doors on the South wall (Out of the demon selling room, up the West ladder, North at the fork as far as you can go.) This time actually turn around and look at the three doors. Enter the one in the middle and descend the ladder. When you go out the door you'll find yourself in an area which does massive damage (half HP) every couple of steps. Here's the trick to surviving: Remember that demon you bought (I told you to buy) in the first Kalpa, well put him in your active party and use his skill Estoma to lower encounter rate. When you get into a battle use his 100% escape success skill. It's the only way you're going to survive, now follow these directions: Head up and go East, the path curves North, then it curves West, then South and finally East again. When it does you'll notice a path ahead of you and a door beside it to the South, do not take the door! If you look at your map you'll see it leads back to the beginning so just keep going. Keep going around, the next time you're heading South you'll see another door, again ignore it. The only time you should enter a door is if the hallway leads you right to it and you have no other options, if the hallway continues, follow the hallway. When you reach the end go down the ladder (I know it sounds repetitive but do not enter any doors without looking at your map to be absolutely sure you aren't backtraking.) Heal your party to full and run to the end and speak with the demon. Have you ever felt your hard work didn't pay off? Not this time, because that trek through the cursed hallway nets you 250,000 Macca. Head back up (use your map to navigate the cursed hallway through the doors in two seconds, rather than running all the way around manually.) When you get back to the room with three doors on the South wall, run to the nearest drop off point and drop down to the lower level. Exit whichever room you dropped down to. Jump down the hole on the East side of the hallway. You need to get to the very North wall, it will be hard to direct so here's a general idea. Face North when you land, you'll have to head West about four panels before you can actually go far anought North to reach the wall. Once you reach the North wall head East for about two panels and you should be able to go South. Go South one panel, then East as far as you can. When you hit the wall go South as far as you can to find a cube with Chakra Pot, then go into the East door. Down near the end of the hall on the East wall is a ripple effect you can walk through. Go through, descend the ladder and open the cube to find the Moon Key. Go back to the invisible wall room and backtrack to the North wall again until you are just beside the North exit. To reach it take the following route: Head South as far as you can go, then West as far as you can go, then North as far as you can go, then West until a path to the North opens up, go North one panel, then West as far as you can go, then North, then West, then North, then East and you should be at the door barring any misdirection. Go through the door and head West. Examine the locked door to use the Moon Key and enter. Inside you will find a cube containing Deathstone. Leave the room and head all the way East and climb the ladder. Go South and return to the hallway outside the room. If you 'choose' to drop down via the West drop, you can find a Mystical Chest with a Soma inside, then navigate through the invisible wall room in a completely different section and make your way all the way back here. It's not worth it, but if you choose to, return to the hallway you are in now to continue the walkthrough when you finish. Head West and go up the stairs, then look at your map. Note the four downward yellow arrows in the middle of your map for this area, you want to drop down the one at the bottom right (Southeast.) When you land don't exit North, instead turn around to see a locked door to the South. Use your Moon Key and it will be unlocked, head South and drop down the hole at the end. When you land, descend the stairs. Follow the path to a peephole and look through it. You can now continue to the Third Kalpa. o----------o o-------------o o-| II - iii |-----------------------------------------(La003)-| Third Kalpa | o----------o o-------------o -- Items: - Bead - Deathstone - Magic Mirror - Bead - Candelabrum of Knowledge Go Northwest from where you enter and proceed through the door. There are three exits in this area, one leading West to the strength area, one leading North to the luck area, and one leading East to the magic area. Each door will check your stats to see if you are worthy to enter. -- Strength For the door in this room you must have a certain amount of strength to go through (15) so assuming you have enough, go through the door. Head West, then South, then East and you'll find a cube containing Bead. Make your way back Borth and enter the door, in the next room the is a cube in the Northeastern corner. Open it to receive Deathstone. You will see two doors on the West wall, enter the lower Southern door to find two cubes containing Magic Mirror and Bead. Leave the room and go back into the North door, this time take the upper door of the two on the West wall. Follow the path around to the strength door, examine again and you should be teleported into the adjacent room, with two doors on the South wall. Enter the right door (West) and grab the Mystical Chest, then head North and out the other door. This time enter the left (East) door and get the Mystical Chest. Exit this room via a door on the East wall. When you go out the door head South and examine the strength door. Assuming it lets you pass go through, enter the door leading West and head down the stairs. Run along the hallway, when you come to a South branch you can enter the door and find a shady broker if you have a dark Reason. Either way continue through the door leading East. You find another door leading East in this room (not on the other side of the room, it's in the walled area in the middle) that leads to a ladder. Climb it and you'll be back at the junction between the three areas. Go North to the luck area. -- Luck There are no cubes but a number of Mystical Chests in here. Navigate through the area to a ladder leading down. The middle ladder will lead you to a hallway with a door you can only access with a neutral Reason, another shady broker is inside. Head to the main section and climb the ladder again to find yourself at the junction between the three attribute checking areas. -- Magic Same principle applies here, nothing but Mystical Chests in this area. If you find the ladder on the Southeastern side it will lead to a similar hallway, where the South branch door can only be opened if you have a light Reason, and a different shady broker will be found. -- All Three Complete The title is a little misleading because you don't actually have to go through any of them, but once you're ready you need to be in the main central area of B1F. Which attribute maze you take to get there is up to you. In the main area of B1F, enter the door leading North into the middle walled area, when you enter the candelabrum will react. Descend the ladder. At the bottom a scene will occur. It doesn't matter which option you pick. Either way a chase is about to begin (if you told him you'd leave you have no choice but to go through the door anyway.) Run forward to the left path branch, Dante will be running towards you. Take the left path and go around and it will lead back ot the path, run left (South) and enter the door. He's counting to three, run forward ignoring the first branch and enter the door on the second branch leading right (North.) Dante will come in through the other door, quickly enter the door on your left (West.) Before leaving the room get ready, the second you leave run South and go through the door. Do it now. Outside the door turn right (West) until you come to a fork. At the fork head right (North) until Dante comes around the corner. Do an immediate U-turn and run straight for the portal to the South. When you come out of the portal turn right (West) and enter the door to the South when you come to the fork. Enter the room immediately on your left and hit the switch. Leave the room and exit North. You'll see Dante right in front of you, bolt left (West) and follow the path with him chasing you all the way down to the portal. Warp yourself, when you come out go right (West) and North at the fork. You're now home free. Descend the ladder. Go forward and enter the door. Another chase is about to begin. First, go West, then North, then a bit East, then North into the door. Now first things first, walk around here just to get a general idea of the layout, there's one important thing to note: In the Northwestern area (not as far as the corner, just slightly Northwest from the middle) there is an L shaped invisible wall. Notice how you can run around it easily, keep this in mind because this is what you will use when Dante is chasing you to get around him. Enter the North door and hit the switch, when you come back out Dante is there. Stay West a bit and use that L wall to get by him and go through the South door. Head to the Southwest door and go through it. There are four pillars here and a door to the West. The Northwestern pillar does not have any walls around it so that is the one you will use to evade Dante. Be suure to find it before proceeding. Head through the door and press the switch. When you come back out use that pillar to get by him and return to the main area. Head to the Northeast door and go through it. Enter the East door and deactivate the switch. Dante will not chase you this time. Leave the room. From the door you were just in head West, when you approach the portal go South. Head East a bit to see Dante in front of the locked door, when he chases you backtrack West then North and enter the portal. When you come out of the other one run West and then North at the fork. You should be safe. Descend the ladder. Follow the path South for another event. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Dante | | Dante is no pushover here, but there are ways | HP: 5000 | | to win. First of all he gets harder the more | MP: 3000 | | damage he takes so devote the first part of | Macca: 10,000 | | battle to pumping up your abilities with -kaja | EXP: 10,000 | | skills. -nda skills are useless because he | | | will literally cancel them every single time, | Physical.....N/A | | but if you feel like wasting one of his press | Fire.........N/A | | turns it's always an option. Once you are | Ice..........N/A | | adequetely pumped begin to use all the most | Electricity..N/A | | powerful attacks and spells you have. You're | Force........N/A | | going to want to ingest a Magatama with | Almighty.....N/A | | protection from mind as the panic ailment | Expel........Void | | will likely harm you more than Dante will. | Death........Void | | The best setup is to have the main character | Curse........Void | | with a mind null Magatama and one demon with | Nerve........Void | | either repel or drain electricity attacks | Mind.........Void | | he will use Roundtrip, an elec based attack | | | for the majority of the late battle. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle you will receive the Candelabrum of Knowledge. Continue on until you are out of the Kalpa and examine the peephole. Watch the scene. You can now conitnue to the Fourth Kalpa. o---------o o--------------o o-| II - iv |-----------------------------------------(La004)-| Fourth Kalpa | o---------o o--------------o -- Items: - 25,000 Macca - 25,000 Macca - Deathstone - Deathstone - Deathstone - 100,001 Macca - 66,666 Macca - Deathstone - Star Key When you enter the Kalpa you will immediately find yourself in a cursed area that will damage you every couple of steps. Use the Piasca you got from the first Kalpa and use the low encounter ability, then put it in your party so you can cast 100% escape if you get into a battle. Head West, the first doors leading North and South both contain cubes with 25,000 Macca each. The next North door is a burial chamber and the one at the very end contains a Deathstone. Return to the entrance of the Kalpa and go North until you are no longer in a cursed area. Heal yourself before proceeding. Go North at the fork and enter the second door you pass. The shady dealer will sell you a demon if you're strong enough, and there's a Mystical Chest. Return to the fork and head East. Enter the South door and descend the ladder. There is a portal in front of you, where it takes you is dependent on the current phase of Kagutsuchi. For now, run ariund until it is either Half or Full, then enter the portal. Assuming all went you you should be taken to Hell's Vault, go North and enter the door. Head West to be teleported. Grab the Mystical Chest here and take the South teleport. Grab the Mystical Chest here and take the South teleport again. Grab the Mystical Chest here and and head to the far East wall to be teleported again. Go forward into the portal, then back into the portal you just came from and you should be where you started. But we aren't done here yet. Get Kagutsuchi once again to either Half or Full and return through the portal to the vault. This time in the first area go East and be teleported. Grab the Mystical Chestand take the South teleport. Grab the Mystical Chest and again take the South teleport. Open the cube to receive Deathstone then take a few steps West and head South to be teleported. As you approach the door and old man will talk to you and give you a choice of agreeing with him or not, don't choose either option. Let the choice menu sit there for a minumum of three minutes, then answer Yes. You will be given access to the room. Open the two cubes to find Deathstone and 100,001 Macca, as well as the Mystical Chest. Take the West teleport and go through the portal, then go back into it. Get your Katsuguchi to an odd number phase and enter the portal. Go down the slope, on your right (East) is a ripple wall you can pass through. Head down the hall, go North at the first branch and North at the fork to find a cube with Deathstone and a burial chamber. Return to the main path and continue North through the portal, then go back through it once again. Get your Kagutsuchi phase to 2/8 or 6/8 and go through. This is Hell's Maze. Go forward and head right (East) through the door. Go East through the next door and then go three times North. Before entering the portal speak to the blue soul and he will tell you about the Afterlife Bell. To get it go to Zoshigaya Cemetery. Bring it back to this maze, from the first fork go all the way North then West to find the Old Soul, then from the first fork again go all the way East to find the Young Soul. When you have spoken to both after receiving the Afterlife Bell you will be able to fuse two new demons and will get a special scene the next time you look through the laybrinth peephole. Anyway go through the portal, then back through for one final time. Get your Kagutsuchi phase to New and go through the portal. Now you'll be in Hell's Hall, go North through the door. This area is cursed so be careful. Head directly Northeast and you will hit a wall. Take a few steps North and when an East path opens up take a few steps East until you are able to coninute North again. Head straight North to the top and approach the door. Get as far up as it says press X to open the door, but don't open it. Go to your menu and fully heal, the proceed through the door. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Beelzebub | | Now here's a boss that's no pushover. Some | HP: 16,000 | | good preparation is needed here, first of all | MP: 10,000 | | ingesting the Satan Magatama to protect you | Macca: 10,000 | | from instant death. Second your party may | EXP: 10,000 | | need a makeover, you need as many people who | | | are immune to death as possible. Don't stop | Physical.....Strong | | there though, go for immuntities to force and | Fire.........N/A | | electricity as well. Primarily what you want | Ice..........Strong | | to do is create a Red Rider, it's one of the | Electricity..Strong | | fiend bosses so there are quite a few ways to | Force........Strong | | create it, but its elemental defenses are | Almighty.....N/A | | amazing. During the actual fight start the | Expel........Repel | | by absolutely maxing your power and minimizing | Death........Repel | | his. This is important, when all that is set | Curse........Void | | up you'll need to use the most powerful | Nerve........Void | | attacks you have, physical and fire are best | Mind.........Void | | here, fire is the only damage he doesn't | | | besides almighty. Hit as hard and as fast as | | | you can here because after a few turns he'll | | | tell you the real fight begins and Dekunda | | | and Dekaja everything, and continue to do it | | | for the rest of the battle making them useless | | | that's why you want to get off as much damage | | | as possible near the start, because he has a | | | lot of life. Other than that, continue to | | | hit him with physical and fire, using Focus | | | constantly, and he will die but it's almost | | | guarenteed to take a long time. | | | | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o Following the battle go into the room to the North and open the three Mystical Chests and get the cube containing 66,666 Macca. Head South of the room where you fought Beelzebub, the curse is now gone from this area, head to the Northeast corner and open the cube to receive Deathstone. Talk to the moth demon in this area and he will tell you about the Star Key and a demon that may know about it. Return to the second Kalpa and to the area you went through long ago that was cursed and at the end the demon gave you 250,000 Macca. Talk to that same demon (the area is no longer cursed) and he'll tell you to get it from his drunk friend. Return to Ginza and speak to Loki in Nyx's Lounge and he'll tell you to get it from a Manikin. Return to Asakusa and go to the collector's shop, choose 'talk' and he'll give you the Star Key. Head to the Third Kalpa, you may remember the door in B1F that couldn't be opened (South of the main area) well now you have the key. Go there, go through the door and jump down the hole to find a switch, deactivate it to finally open the door in the Fourth Kalpa. Go all the way back up and head to the Fourth Kalpa. Enter the Fourth Kalpa and go through the portal at an odd number Kagutsuchi and run down the slope to the portal at the end, when you go through descend the ladder. Follow the path to the end of the hall. Go South to find a cube with Tetraja Rock, then go North to exit. Peek through the peephole. You can now continue to the Fifth Kalpa. o--------o o-------------o o-| II - v |-------------------------------------------(La005)-| Fifth Kalpa | o--------o o-------------o -- Items: - Chakra Drop - Bead - (Numerous other treasures are found through special doors) Enter the Kalpa, almost immediately after you do you'll meet a familiar face. You now have the option of recruiting Dante into your party, if you do you have to make a coin flip, heads or tails. Win and he costs 1 Macca to recruit, lose and he costs half your total. Regardless he's level 80 and a pretty good character, I'd pick him up. Go North and proceed down the stairs. On the lower floor from the main area yo ustart in, enter the door to the West. Run West through the fake wall, then go South into the door. Head West at the fork and through a couple fake walls to find a cube containing Chakra Drop. Return to the fork and head East, then go North at the next fork and down the ladder. Follow the path North and deactivate the switch, then backtrack and ascend the ladder again. Go South as far as you can, then East into the door. Grab the Mystical Chest through the Southern wall and go North back to the beginning. Head through the East door this time. Go North at the fork into the door, then East at the next fork. Grab the cube containing Bead, return to to the fork, head West then South and descend the ladder. Run down the hall to find a 4-way split. To the South is a switch to deactivate, to the East is a room containing many treasures but only opens up after completing the Kalpa. Head West from the split to find a Burial Chamber, then go back up the ladder. Head as far North as you can from the ladder, then go West into the door. Through the wall to the North is a Mystical Chest, go South and return once again to the main area. Return to the West ladder again (directions West until you hit a hard wall, South until you hit a hard wall, East until you hit a hard wall, North, then East.) Go down the ladder. Proceed through the hall until you hit a fork, go East and then South through the door and down the ladder. Go through the door and enter the door leading South just East of the one you came out of, right beside it. Go South through the next door, take a couple steps East and go through that North door (so in essence you've just gone in a horizontal S pattern.) There should be a ladder here, descend it. At this point things get a bit complicated. I'll do my best to make things easy for you but the next floor will likely best be done at your discretion, threre are a number of doors that require you to have certain stat requirements to be met, which you may not meet at this time. Follow along if you can but feel free to explore, I'll provide some general information in the next section. At this point if you have one demon with more than 25 strength, and that fairy I told you to keep from the beginning of the game (it's ok if you fused it, as long as you still have the demon you fused it to) then you should be just fine for everything here. Go out the door and head East (with a bit of a Southward angle) to find a golden door. The door will not open unless you have a demon with more than 25 strength. The main character cannot be chosen, Dante also cannot be chosen. If you do not have a demon of this strength then return to a chatedral of shadows and try doing some sacrificial fusions at full Kagutsuchi. Head through the door and go South, through two doors, then a bit West and South. The door will ask for the one who has been with you the longest, send forward the pixie from the beginning of the game, or the demon you fused her with to open the door (note that you will lose the pixie or the demon so if you really like them for whatever reason... be careful) not that it matters because they are about to be replaced. Your new uber Pixie has 30 for every single stat. She can also get through virtually every single door here so if you don't get her, you could have some serious levelling up to do before going past this floor. Return to the North door that you came from and head West this time, you'll need a demon with more than 25 magic (Pixie) to get through. Run West, take the second path South to find another golden door that asks for more than 20 agility. Proceed through it and head there are a number of small rooms with four way branch forks here. Take the following doors: West, North, West, South, South, East, South. Enter the door on the West side leading South and descend the stairs. Head North and be prepared. o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o | BOSS | | o------------------------------------------------o Metatron | | Probably the most effective Magatama here to | HP: 16,000 | | ingest is Nirvana since his expel attacks are | MP: 10,000 | | pretty much the only ones he has that aren't | Macca: 10,000 | | either physical or almighty. Physical attacks | EXP: 10,000 | | are the way to go in this battle, however he | | | halves their damage and will instantly negate | Physical.....Strong | | any -nda or -kaja spells you use. Your best | Fire.........Strong | | bet is actually Dante's Provoke or someone's | Ice..........N/A | | taunt skill to double down his defense and | Electricity..Strong | | then attack on the same turn with Focused | Force........Strong | | attacks. Your two newest allies offer a good | Almighty.....N/A | | amount of help, Dante's Stinger (lv 82) and | Expel........Void | | Holy Star are great for damage and getting rid | Death........Void | | of Debilitate effects. The Pixie's 100% HP | Curse........Void | | to party spell speaks for itself, her only | Nerve........Void | | problem is that her defenses against the | Mind.........Void | | elements are virtually none. Rely on Focusing | | | and Provoke skills, obviously healing and | | | the occasional Fog Breath. His almighty | | | attacks can't really be reduced, but be sure | | | in the event that he uses magic boosting -kaja | | | that you are ready with Dekaja, this is very | | | important. He only ever gets two hits per | | | (often wasted on things like Dekunda and weak | | | normal attacks) so although a hard boss | | | overall, use to your advantage the fact that | | | he's very slow and predictable. | | o------------------------------------------------o---------------------------o After the battle go North and descend the ladder. Head North until you hit a fork and go left (West.) You shouldn't have any problem from here. When you wake up in the hospital that's it, you've completed the Labyrinth of Amala. Note if you did not get the final scene then it probably means you entered the Tower of Kagutsuchi before completing this, meaning you cannot get the special ending. One thing to note now with your new demon form, you have unlocked the final skill of Marogareh, Pierce, it is one of the best skills in the game. ****************************************************************************** * Endings (En000) * ****************************************************************************** Endings are determined via a system of points that you accumulate through to game to lean you towards different Reasons. There are six possibilities, Musubi, Yosuga, Shijima, Neutral, Demon and True Demon. In order to get any of these ending you must select the appropriate choices when faced with decisions throughout the game, for example if Isamu asks if you agree with him, selecting 'Yes' will obviously give you more points toward Musubi. There are however, more important factors that 'flag' your specific Reason. These flags are the most important determinants of which ending you will get, the points only come into play if you flag more than one Reason and you have to select which of the two you will get. The following is a small guide which should help if you're trying to get a specific ending or where to flag each particular Reason: Musubi - Activate flag in Amala Temple and Amala Network Shijima - Actiavte flag in Diet Building Yoguga - Actiavte flag in Mifunashiro Neutral - Choose 'good' honest answers for questions Demon - Choose 'bad' dishonest answers for question True Demon - Complete the Labyrinth of Amala before the final dungeon Note: You cannot activate Musubi flags for Neutral and Demon endings After defeating the boss of the game you will see the ending for five of those six, for the true demon you must first defeat one more special boss before witnissing the endings. ****************************************************************************** * Fusion (Fu000) * ****************************************************************************** -- General Information -- Demon fusion is a very complex and interesting system implemented in this game in order to allow you to combine two demons into a more powerful demon using a number of different rules and vairables to determine the outcome of the fusion. The basics are this: If you have two demons, and you fuse them together your resulting demon will be of a race previously determined beyond your control, with a level the the approximate average of the two or higher, with skills common to the new demon's race as well as some acquired from the previous two. This is the simplest it gets and only goes further from here. Before starting it is important to note there are a number of different types of fusions. First of all there is normal fusion, which doesn't change and will pretty much comprise all of your normal demon fusion. Secondly there is fiend fusion, which through certain conditions allows you to fuse the special fiends you battle throughout the game. The requirements to fuse a fiend are a particular Kagutsuchi phase, as well as items called Deathstone found in the Kalpas of the Labyrinth of Amala. Third there are curse fusions, which means that when you are cursed the rules of fusion are altered slightly and you are able to create different demons as well as a select few demons that are only availble through curse fusion. Fourth there are special fusions that when certain combinations are made the result is usually unexpected and pleasantly surprising. Finally there are 'upgrade' fusions which allow you to fuse special types of demons and increase the abilities of your demon without changing its race. Finally there are sacrificial fusions which can only be performed at full Kagutsuchi, when you do a normal fusion you will be asked if you wish to make a sacrifice, any demon you select will be removed from your party but your resulting demon will become more powerful. First of all there is basic demon fusion. At the moment a full chart of all combination possibilities is not possible, however parasyte13 has devised a great program that allows you to see the results for virtually any fusion. The program can be found here: http://parasyte.ddrmaniax.net/smt_fusion.zip - Original http://www.microsqft.com/files/smt_fusion.zip - Mirror http://www.popanime.net/megami/other/smt_fusion.zip - Mirror 2 In order to get this working you are required to have the .NET framework 1.0 or higher installed on your computer. The framework can be found here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/a/a/c/ aac39226-8825-44ce-90e3-bf8203e74006/dotnetfx.exe Connect the two parts of that link together and you will be taken directly to the download of the framework that is required. Here are a couple of screenshots of what the program looks like: http://parasyte.ddrmaniax.net/smt_fusion1.png http://parasyte.ddrmaniax.net/smt_fusion2.png *** Please do not email me about trying to get this program to work, I *** have never used it personally, I won't have a clue. This is solely for the benefit of anyone who wishes to have an exact database of all fusions. Please no not email parasyte13 about it either, I have purposely omitted his email from this document to avoid any spamming. Everything you need in orde to get this program to work is above and if you can't figure it out, there's nothing *** we can do to help. *** I will now go into more detail about the more complex fusions. -- Fiend Fusions -- Lets begin with fusing fiends. The fiends are much more powerful than your average demon, usually loading with incredible elemental and ailment resistences. For starts you must visit the Kalpas in the Labyrinth of Amala and find the chests with items called Deathstones in them. One Deathstone is required for each demon fusion (there are quite a few Deathstones so you don't have to be too stingy, don't worry.) There are two restrictions on creating the fiends, first and most important you must have defeated them already. Second the Kagutsuchi phase must be correct. For your benefit the following is a quick guide to what phase Kagutsuchi should be in order to fuse the fiends you are trying to create. For each phase, the fiends that are possible to create are listed: New - White Rider New - Red Rider New - Black Rider New - Pale Rider 1/8 - Matador 2/8 - Matador 3/8 - Matador Half - Matador Half - Hell Biker Half - The Harlot 5/8 - Hell Biker 6/8 - Hell Biker 6/8 - Daisoujou 7/8 - Hell Biker 7/8 - Daisoujou Full - Daisoujou Full - Trumpeter Secondly in order to create these fiends you must fufill the necessary requirements to createa certain type of demon. Each fiend is created when a demon tupe and Kagutsuchi are matched. For example if you wish to fuse the Matador, you must be on a 1/8 - 4/8 Kagutsuchi and set up a fusion that would normally yield a Yoma demon. The Yoma demon will actually be a Matador fiend under the right Kagutsuchi phase. The following is a list of what demon types are needed for each fiend. Matador - Yoma Daisoujou - Night Hell Biker - Fairy Trumpeter - Tyrant Harlot - Tyrant White Rider - Yoma Red Rider - Fairy Black Rider - Night Pale Rider - Tyrant Tip: The easiest way to make a Tyrant is a combination of Vile and Fury. Next is some information on the special fusions of the game. -- Special Fusions -- Even if you were to fuse some demons of types you were used to creating a certain race, if it happened to satisfy the conditions for a special fusion you may find you create something totally different altogether. For special fusions exact demons must be used and fused to create some of the most powerful demons in the game. What follows is a list of all the special demons you can create and who you must fuse to make them: Demon | Demon 1 | Demon 2 | Sacrifice | -----------------|-------------------|------------------|------------------| Foul Sakahagi | Two demons which create a Foul demon | N/A | Fury Shiva | Femme Rangda | Avatar Barong | N/A | Seraph Gabriel | Divine Dominion | Seraph Uriel | N/A | Seraph Gabriel | Divine Throne | Seraph Raphael | N/A | Vile Girimehkala | Two demons which create Yoma Purski | Vile | Raptor Gurr | Two demons which create Beast Sparna | Tyrant | Vile Samael | Two demons which create Divine Throne| Vile | Deity Amaterasu | Avatar Yatagarasu | Brute/Femme/Vile | Megami Uzume | Seraph Metatron | Seraph Michael | Seraph of Divine | Tyrant | Brute Ongyo-ki | Brute Kin-Ki | Brute Sui-Ki | Brute Fuu-Ki | Seraph Michael | Seraph Uriel | Seraph Raphael | Seraph Gabriel | Use the following chart with the one above as a guide to which levels your demons should be at when fusing. All entries pertain to the above chart. Demon | Demon 1 | Demon 2 | Sacrifice | -----------------|-------------------|------------------|------------------| 45 | 45 | 45 | - | 95 | 60 | 60 | - | 84 | 50 | 73 | - | 87 | 64 | 84 | - | 58 | 48 | 48 | - | 63 | 54 | 54 | - | 73 | 64 | 64 | - | 56 | 46 | 45 | 18 | 95 | 90 | - | - | 81 | 59 | 62 | 66 | 90 | 73 | 84 | 87 | That's it for special fusions. Next are fusions that can make your demons you already have more powerful. -- Rank/Power Up Fusions -- These kind of fusions as previously mentioned can power up the demosn you already have. These are performed by fusing your demons with special things called Elements and Mitama. These can be created by fusing demons of the same race together, but they can also be obtained by going to the jeweler's shop and exchanging your jewels. For rank increasing fusions the elements are used. Increasing rank means promoting a demon to the next level of demon in their particular race. Obviously this will not work if they are the higest rank of their particular race. It is possible for a demon to move either up or down depending on the element and race of the demon you are trying to upgrade. Next we have stat upgrade fusions with Mitama. It'snot too complicated and doesn't require a giant chart like the rank up fusions, it's rather simple. Fuse a Mitama with one of your demons to power up its stats. Yes there is a limit and you cannot do this forever, but in the long run it's definetely worthwhile. Here is a simple guide to which Mitama to use: Note: Despite these numbers you cannot boost a stat past double the base stat of the demon's current level. All stat boosts are by a factor of 1.2 Mitama | Strength | Magic | Vitality | Agility | Luck | -----------------|------------|---------|------------|-----------|--------| Saki Mitama | N/A | N/A | Up | N/A | Up | Kusi Mitama | N/A | N/A | Up | Up | N/A | Migi Mitama | N/A | Up | N/A | N/A | Up | Ara Mitama | Up | N/A | N/A | Up | N/A | That's about all there is to upgrade fusions. -- Sacrificial Fusions -- Sacrifical fusions are very useful and rather simple. The demon you have fused with two demons will not be changed by a sacrifice, rather the sacrifice will donate experience to the resulting demon depending on the level of the sacrifice. This si a great way to create more pwerful versions of early demons, just note that even if you are able to create a demon, if the sacrifice puts the demon's level above your own then you will not be able to actually perform the fusion. -- Miscellaneous Information -- Time to clear up a few leftover odds and ends. For every fusion you do there isa 1/256 chance the fusion will fail, when it does you still get a demon but it is different than the one you were trying to create and the level has a high probability of being lower. At full Kagutsuchi the probability of fusion failure increase by a huge factor landing it at 1/16 so always be sure to save before performing any fusions. The Demonic Compendum exists so that you can create demons you've had beforw without going through the trouble of fusing them. Select view and you can purchase any demon you've had before for a certain amount of Macca which varies depending on how strong the demon it. In the register section you can overwrite the entry for a particular demon. Say you have a demon listed in the compendum at level 50, if you have the same demon at level 60 in your party you can 'register' the one in your party, and make it so the one in the compendum is identical to the one in your party. Doing this has no effect on the one in your party. ****************************************************************************** * Magatama (Ma000) * ****************************************************************************** o-----------------------o------------------------------------o---------------o | Marogareh | Skills | Stats | o-----------------------+------------------------------------+---------------o | | | | | Physical.....N/A | Lunge (L3) | Strength +2 | | Fire.........N/A | Analyze (L4) | Magic +1 | | Ice..........N/A | Life Bonus (L6) | Vitality +2 | | Electricity..N/A | Berserk (L10) | Agility +1 | | Force........N/A | Counter (L20) | Luck +1 | | Almighty.....N/A | Pierce (Finish Fifth Kalpa) | | | Expel........Strong | | | | Death........Strong | o-------+-------o | | Curse........N/A | | Acquired | | | Nerve........N/A +----------------------------+---------------+-------o | Mind.........N/A | Automatically | | | | |-----------------------|----------------------------------------------------| o-----------------------o------------------------------------o---------------o | Wadatsumi | Skills | Stats | o-----------------------+------------------------------------+---------------o | | | | | Physical.....N/A | Ice Breath (L7) | Strength +0 | | Fire.........N/A | Mana Bonus (L11) | Magic +3 | | Ice..........Void | Ice Boost (L15) | Vitality +2 | | Electricity..Weak | Fog Breath (L21) | Agility +2 | | Force........N/A | Anti-Ice (L24) | Luck +1 | | Almighty.....N/A | | | | Expel........Strong | | | | Death........Strong | o-------+-------o | | Curse........N/A | | Acquired | | | Nerve........N/A +----------------------------+---------------+-------o | Mind.........N/A | Defeat Fallen Forneus | | | | |-----------------------|----------------------------------------------------| o-----------------------o------------------------------------o---------------o | Ankh | Skills | Stats | o-----------------------+------------------------------------+---------------o | | | | | Physical.....N/A | Dia (L5) | Strength +1 | | Fire.........N/A | Fast Retreat (L12) | Magic +1 | | Ice..........N/A | Media (L19) | Vitality +4 | | Electricity..N/A | | Agility +0 | | Force........N/A | | Luck +2 | | Almighty.....N/A | | | | Expel........Void | | | | Death........Weak | o-------+-------o | | Curse........N/A | | Acquired | | | Nerve........N/A +----------------------------+---------------+-------o | Mind.........N/A | Junk Shop -

I would also like to add an extra note regarding donations, I wish to establish that I do not write game guides for a profit, I do it as a hobby to benefit not only my fellow gamers, but myself as well because I happen to enjoy writing quite a lot. If you wish to support the continued writing process, donations will be construed as appreciative gestures, not as compensation, I do now, and always will continue to write guides free to distribute online for all to enjoy. Donations can be made to StarOceanDC(at) gmail(dot)com via Paypal, if you do choose to donate even a small amount, please send an email to that same address so I can thank you personally. As a final note I would just like to make mention of something, to date since September 2004, I have personally received over 2200 emails all relating to my work and while I have done my best to respond to as many as I can, I would just like to use this space and take the opportunity to say thank you to everyone who has sent me positive feedback or even just general questions relating to my work, even if I do struggle to answer them sometimes. Oftentimes it's too easy to just take these guides as anonymous free help, but there are still those who recognize the blood and sweat that goes into these walkthroughs, and those are the people who make it all worthwhile ^_^ For a list of all my work, please visit the following URL: http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/45802.html ****************************************************************************** * Credits (Cr000) * ****************************************************************************** First of all I'd like to give my highest thanks to the good people at Doublejump for their incredible guide, an invaluable source of information about this game. Secondly I'd like to thanks CjayC for keeping this site running for so long, happy 9th anniversary today! Third I'd like to thank the following two users, jayntampa for the correction on puzzle #20, as well as parasyte13 for creating the fusion program and sharing it with everyone. A huge extra thanks goes to IKelley for his walkthrough for the JP version (and NA application) Walkthrough on GameFAQs, I've never seen such dedication and completeness for a game, sometimes reading through it I almost felt unworthy of writing my own guide :) Thanks to Terry for a correction Thank you very much to a (very helpful) anonymours GameFAQs user who assisted in the fixing of numerous errors. Finally thanks to Mark, Sean and Jeremy at University of Guelph. Don't even ask me how I managed to complete all this in the middle of the semester... during peak midterm time. Thanks to any and all reading this guide. o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o ******************************************************************************
