  • The following is my own srategy on how to defeat the Beast Rune Monster:

    1. Choose the following members of your party:
    Frontliners (any order): Georg, Viktor, Pesmerga
    Rear (any order): Alfred, Mazus, Lorelai

    2. Status level should be at least 59 after beating Seed and Culgan.
    Weapon Level should be at maximum (level 16). Just buy the Gold Hammer
    in Sajah Village and let Tessai do the sharpening (even Mazus' Nova Rod
    must be at Level 16). Equipment should be at maximum (it's better to
    arm Lorelai with Blood Armor which is dropped by Chimera in L'Renouille
    occasionally). Georg should have a Flame Helmet (found in Gorudo's
    castle).

    3. Arm with Guard Rings, Gold Emblems, Magic Rings (especially for
    Mazus), Gold Emblems, or Fire Emblems. Guard Rings and Magic Rings are
    bought from Hans. Fire Emblems from Alex. Gold Emblems from Kobold
    Village (Rare Finds).

    4. Runes: Georg: Barrier (weapon: Thunder)
    Viktor: Fury or Violence, Double-Beat (weapon:
    Exertion)
    Pesmerga: Fury or Double-Beat (weapon: Rage)
    Hero: Mo. Earth, Bright Shield, Water (weapon:
    Friendship)
    Mazus: Blue Gate, Thunder, Flowing (weapon: Fire or
    Lightning)
    Lorelai: Mo. Earth, Cyclone (weapon: Rage)

    5. Barrier Runes are dropped by Ten Ten (a female enemy) in Banner
    Forest.
    6. A Fury Rune can be found in one of the rooms in L'Renouille. It can
    also be a Rare Find in Muse just before the invasion of L'Renouille.
    7. Viktor's Double Beat Rune is actually Pesmerga's. Double-Beat Runes
    are dropped by CutRabbits in Highland and North Sparrow Pass at the very
    early part of the game.
    8. A Mother Earth Rune is given by Gustav in Tinto after slaying
    Neclord. It can also be a Rare Find in Gregminster.
    9. A Flowing Rune is given freely by a woman in Muse City in the second
    floor of the Rune Shop just before the invasion of L'Renouille. It can
    also be a Rare Find in Gregminster.
    10. A Cyclone Rune is given freely by Sarah in the second floor of the
    inn at Gregminster.
    11. A Rage Rune (for Lorelai's weapon) is given freely by the
    Runemaster teacher in Greenhill after defeating the Bone Dragon.
    12. A Thunder Rune (for Georg's weapon) is given freely by the blue
    knight outside Gorudo's room after the flag area in Rockaxe castle,
    after Nanami "died."
    13. An Exertion Rune can be found hidden in the big urn beside the
    Elder's house in Kobold Village.
    14. A Friendship Rune can be found hidden in one of the bonsai in front
    of the City Hall in South Window.
    15. Mazus' Blue Gate and Thunder Runes are built-in and so is
    Pesmerga's Rage Rune in his weapon.
    16. At the very start of the battle, let Lorelai cast Guardian Earth
    first (and for every 5 rounds), and Mazus cast Protect Mist (every 3
    rounds). Destroy the Left Leg first, then the Rune, the Left Head, then
    the Right Head. Never mind the Right Leg.
    17. Best Attack spells are Pale Palace of Mazus, The Shredding and
    Storm Warning of Lorelai.
    18. Reserve Mazus' Thor (level 5 spell) - not Thor Shot - in very
    desperate cases in order to heal all and aim for the Rune of the Beast
    to damage it by about 400 - 1000.
    19. When Mazus runs out of Protect Mist, let your Hero cast Canopy
    Defense.
    20. Reserve your Hero's Great Blessing after the Left Leg changed your
    characters' status. Also, reserve his Battle Oath and Forgiver Sign
    (aim for the Rune of the Beast) in very desperate cases.
    21. Reserve Mazus' Kindness Rain in desperate cases.
    22. Reserve Lorelai's Healing Wind if your Hero has changed status.
    23. See the following outline for the appropriate use of spells:

    Hero: 1 - Great Blessing (reserve this as long as the Left Leg is
    still not destroyed)
    2 - Canopy Defense (cast this spell if Mazus runs out of
    Protect Mist)
    3 - Battle Oath (in desperate cases)
    4 - Forgiver Sign (in very desperate cases, aim for the
    Rune of the beast)

    Mazus: 1 - Protect Mist (cast this at the start and every 3 rounds)
    2 - Kindness Rain (in very desperate cases, reserve for
    Left Leg attacks)
    3 - Pale Palace (best attack)
    5 - Thor (combination of Thunder Storm and Mother Ocean
    - in very desperate cases,
    aim for the Rune of the Beast)

    Lorelai: 1 - Healing Wind (to heal status of desperate individuals
    especially your Hero if his status
    changed)
    2 - The Shredding (best attack)
    3 - Storm Warning (best attack)
    4 - Guardian Earth (cast at the very start of battle,
    and every 5 rounds)


    24. Never ever use Mazus' Empty World (it will render all helpless),
    and Lorelai's and your Hero's Earthquake (it won't affect the boss at
    all). Also, never use Mazus' and your Hero's Silent Lake or you'll end
    up cheated by the beast. Mazus' Thunder spells, Open Gate and King's
    Road are all useless so don't even try wasting your energy with those.
    Mazus' Thor Shot is powerful but his Mother Ocean is useless (unless
    somebody died)s it is better to combine both spells to cast Thor.
    Lorelai's Guardian Earth is more important than her Shining Wind spell
    so use the former.

    25. Heal often Georg, Viktor, and Pesmerga because they are the ones
    who could be the most helpful in your quest.

    26. Sometimes Mazus is not in his right mind (there's a green balloon
    with a question mark above his head). You can't do anything about it
    even with Healing Wind, Kindness Rain or Great Blessing. Just heal him
    every now and then and he'll come to his right mind after a few rounds.
    During this time, Mazus automatically hits with his Nova Rod - thus the
    reason to sharpen it.

    27. It is best to boost your characters' magic defense in this battle
    because the boss does not have physical attacks - only magical. Crimson
    Capes and Winged Boots are useless after beating Seed and Culgan.

    2. Status level should be at least 55. Weapon level should be at least 13 (go to the blacksmith in Tinto if you don't have Tessai yet). Equipment should be the best - buy from Hans. Never embed Lightning Rune on the weapon as the enemy is immune to Lightning attacks.

    3. Arm your frontliners with Crimson Capes, Winged Boots, or Capes of Darkness. Fire Emblems, Thunder Amulets, Gold Emblems, Magic Rings, or Guard Rings should be in all character's inventory.

Capes of Darkness and Fire Emblems can be bought from Alex. Guard Rings, Magic Rings and Thunder Amulets can be bought from Hans. Gold Emblems are rare - check the Kobold Village Item Shop Rare Finds.

    7. A Violence Rune can be found hidden in the shelf in the Appraisal Shop in Rockaxe.
    8. Killer Runes are dropped by Woodpeckers at Ryube Forest.
    9. Viktor's Double Beat Rune is actually Pesmerga's. Double Beat Runes are actually dropped by CutRabbits in Highland or in the North Sparrow Pass during the very early part of the game.
    10. A Fire Sealing Rune can be found in a chest box at the Highlander camp when your Hero and Jowy were asked by Jess to act as spies.
    11. A Cyclone Rune is given freely by Sarah in the second floor of the inn in Gregminster.
    12. A Friendship Rune can be found hidden in one of the bonsai in front of the City Hall in South Window.
    13. An Exertion Rune can be found hidden in the big jar beside the Elder's house in Kobold Village.

    15. Resurrection Runes are bought from Jeane.

    18. Heal Viktor often.
    19. Make good use of Battle Oath, Healing Wind, and Canopy Defense

    Friendship Rune. Humphrey's weapon can have any rune.

    8. Chaco and Sid must use Winger Attack often.
    9. HAnna and Oulan must use tackle attack often.
    10. Rina's Silent Lake power (Water Rune) must combine with Flik's Thor
    Shot (Lightning Rune) in the middle of the game to heal allies and
    inflict 1000+ damage on Luca.
    11. Camus cannot hit Luca and has only got to join Miklotov (Knight
    Attack) or Flik (Pretty Boy Attack).

  • How to get a few secret characters

    Below are some secret characters that should be very helpful.

    1.Kinnison and Shiro: while searching for Boneparte put the baby bird back in its nest. Then walk all the way up the mountain and come back to the nest Kinnison and Shiro will be there and will gladly join your party.

    Gobacha: go to the Kobold Village (in Two River) with Gengen in your party and go to Gabocha's house. After the coversation between Gabacha and Gengen ends Gabacha will secretly join your party.

    Zamza: Go to South Window's Inn with Nanami in your party and after their argument Zamza will join your party.

    Hans: In Two River, go to the Inn and go upstairs and talk to Hans. Offer him a job for free(if you want him to set up his shop right away)

Suikoden 2 Hints

  • Defeating Luca Blight

    An easy way to become almost invincible against Luca is to equip Hero with a earth rune and a fire sealing rune and two sacrificial jizos.

    While fighting luca have Hero cast Revenge earth. This will protect you from Luca attacking you normally and when he uses his fire sword magic, Hero will be invincible to Lucas attack thanks to the fire sealing rune.

  • Hints

    1. The best thing to do to get Gordon (the trademaster in Gregminster)
    right away is to trade 4 Celadon Urns with him. However, it is
    difficult to get Celadon Urns from Flyers and Bon-Bons. You can just
    trade Red Pepper from Crom Village with Gordon every now and then. Wait
    for the number of Red Peppers in Gregminster to drop to 0, 1 or 2 then
    trade with about 8 or more Red Peppers from Crom.

    2. For the guardian deity, I usually use Dragon Plans#1, Turtle Plans
    #2, Unicorn Plans #3, and Dragon Plans #4 for the Head, Body, Legs, and
    Tail respectively. I get a Wind Hat and arm Viktor with it. Turtle
    Plans #2 are dropped by Ragged One; Unicorn Plans #3 are given freely by
    a man in Tinto; and Dragon Plans #4 can be found in Rockaxe castle just
    before or after Nanami "died." Jude has Dragon Plans #1 already.

    3. I have noticed that if you don't look for seeds for Tony and animals
    for Yuzu, you will have weaker attack and defense gauges during the
    Field Battles. So, it is advisable to look for these seeds and animals.

    4. During Field Battles, always protect Luc's company and Mazus' too as
    their rune spells are very very useful. Luc's Wind Magic could destroy
    Yuber's troops with great luck.

    5. One of the best sound sets is the one given by the Ninja in Rokkaku
    hamlet.

    6. To complete the 108 stars of destiny, it is best to watch out for
    Mukumuku, and Futch and Humphrey because you might just miss them!

    7. Let Barbara strip the less useful characters of their armor and
    items and sell them to her or get the better items and arm them with the
    more useful characters. Let Jeane do the same for the runes and Tessai
    for the runes in weapons.

    8. It is better to reserve foods than can replenish high HP (about 450
    - 700) in your bag and use them on your characters before a boss battle
    so that the use of spells is minimized.

    9. It is not practical to arm food in your inventory during a boss
    battle. It is better to let wind, water and bright shield runes do the
    healing.

    10. Order food with high HP from Hai Yo.

    11. There is a rumored special effect in the bathhouse if you have
    Abizboah or Rulodia with six octopus urns. The best thing to do to get
    octopus urns is to get it from Bon-Bon in the Highland area (near the
    Mercenary Fort, Toto Village, etc.) with either Stallion, Ayda, or
    Kinnison in your party.

    12. In cooking contests (which is done just for fun), take note that
    once Fu Tan Chen (the host) says that a certain judge loves fish,
    prepare Sole for him or her (Simmered Fish with Soy Sauce). If he is a
    vegetarian like Wakaba, prepare Green Salad (Salad with Mayonaisse), If
    he is fond of western food like Humphrey, use Shortcake (Cake with
    Sugar) or Pudding (Ice Cream with Sugar). Nanami likes BBQ Meat Bun
    combinations.
