The story of the SaGa begins of the way back to the Gameboy (Final Fantasy legends), then goes to the SNES era (Romancing SaGa) and the PS (SaGa frontier). Not as popular as the Final Fantasy series, the SaGa games established himself as a complex game aimed for a hardcore RPG audience. The series always offered interesting non-linear storylines, random status development and almost infinite possibilities for the characters, making that the same game can be played endless times and not ever will be like the other. Unlimited SaGa has met severe criticism by the press and casual players, most of it because it's unimpressive graphics and an uber- complex game mechanics. But the hardcore players thanks Square Enix by creating a game that dare to be different from the others. The Seven Wonders, a mysterious legacy left from an ancient civilization. The last remains of a time called the Golden Age, when wonderful deeds were done and created the base of the world that you know today. Seven persons, seven different destinies are about to join together to unravel the mysteries of the ancient civilization, but they are capable to restore the peace and bring a new Golden Age? Are you ready to discover the hidden truth about the legendary Seven Wonders? 3 - - GAME OPTIONS IMPORTANT INFO - The game requires a memory card to boot up every single time and also a Dual Shock 2 controller. If you don't have a memory card, the game will not boot. The first time you play Unlimited SaGa, it will create a file called system data (154 KB). I know that you probably already have a memory card and a Dual Shock 2, but better safe than sorry. After the CG intro, some game modes will appear: NEW GAME - Starts a new game. Select between 7 unique characters. LOAD GAME - Continue your previously saved game, after you choose to continue, a load screen appears. The game requires 104 KB of the memory card to save. CONTINUE - In this game, you can save in dungeons, but when you load back, this save is deleted. The save will be stored on the system data and do not requires further Kb of the memory card. FFX-2 PREVIEW - A preview movie of Final Fantasy X-2 (not available in the JAP version). OPTIONS - Customize your game. C) Controls X button - Selects a topic. Attacks (on battles) O button - Hold (on battles), open main status menu (field) Triangle - Cancel a selection Square - Check the map and number of turns (field) L1/R1 - Cycles between the characters L2/R2 - Cycles between the arts (skill and arts screen) Analog stick - Moves the character Directional buttons - Select field options and cycles the event list. Press analog stick (L3 and R3) - Rest (in the field) L1 + R1 + Select + Start - Return to the main game screen. 4 - - HOW TO PLAY Probably the most important section of the FAQ, is explaining how to play the game. Unlimited SaGa has no game tutorial, and the instruction manual teaches the basic of the basic, so most of this section is based on mostly empiric findings and from real gameplay, so as everything based on empiric observation only, it is bound to have some mistakes. Please consult others sources in case of doubt. A ) Choosing your character Each character has his role in the history of the game, and 7 characters with at least 25 hours on each character, it's hard to know what person to choose, especially if you are short on time. So I create a table with the difficulty level to beat the game and the level of each character story-wise to understanding of Unlimited Saga as a whole. RUBY - Difficulty - Medium Story - High She has a very cool storyline and the difficulty is not that hard to play. Nice ending as well. VENTUS - Difficulty - Easy Story - Medium If you want to see almost everything that Unlimited has to offer, look no further that Ventus storyline. LAURA - Difficulty - Hard Story - Medium Interesting story, but perhaps the most difficult adventure in the game. Only for the experts. MYTHE - Difficulty - Medium Story - High One of the most interesting adventures, and a quite long journey. ARMIC - Difficulty - High Story - Low Probably the most unfulfilling quest in this game, it's quite hard to beat and the story didn't offer anything new or rewarding. The most "different" quest in the game. JUDY - Difficulty - Easy Story - Medium The most short and easy quest in this game. You can reach the last boss with only 4 hours of gameplay. Good for the first venture in the Unlimited saga. KURT - Difficulty - Medium Story - Medium Interesting storyline as well, and the quest is somewhat short. But it's a fun ride, there are tough bosses on his game also. B ) Towns In Unlimited SaGa, there are several towns in the game. Every town has at least an inn, and a carrier guild. There are others things as Blacksmiths, magic shops, dungeons and story-related places. I will explain every one of these options below. INN - The busiest place in the game. SHOP - In the inn you can buy or sell equipment on the shop. You can get your equipment by paying Kr (the currency of the game) or trading with other equipment's. Some places only accepts trading as the payment method. INFORMATION - Get information and gossip. Some of the characters story will only advance by getting specific information in the inns. ADVENTURES - Explore the world in the adventures section. The core of the game relies on the adventure section; so the inn will be the place that you will spend most of the time. EQUIPMENT - Check and change your equipment and items. ADVENTURE LOG - Save your game. EXIT - Exit the inn. CARRIER GUILD - The place to carriers get his works. Only accessible in Ventus storyline. For the other characters, this place have no use at all. BLACKSMITH - You can create or improve your weapon at the blacksmiths. Each blacksmith works with a selected set of equipment and every blacksmith are specialized on something. More on the equipment section further below. MAGIC SHOP - In this place sells equipment just like the normal shop, but the weapons sold in the magic shops came with magical properties. More on the equipment section. DUNGEONS - There are some dungeons that can be accessed anytime you want, and you can play it several times. The dungeons don't have a specific objective or a maximum number of turns, unlike the adventures. So go there if you want some battle experience and treasures. There is no character development in these dungeons. STORY-RELATED PLACES - In some towns, there are places only accessible by a few characters to advance their storylines. For the other characters, these places have no use at all. OBS: There is only one town that doesn't have any inn or carrier guild but it's just a story-related place. This place is the Galeos Castle, which only appears in Laura's game. The Galeos castle is located near Escata. C ) Going to adventures Just like in every other RPG, you will recruit characters to participate in your quest. Each quest has 8 characters to recruit, some of them are exclusive to his quest and some of the characters that you can recruit are others main characters as well. So you will see Ruby fighting with Mythe, Laura with Armic, Kurt with Ventus and so on. But you can only take 7 characters to an adventure. In the inns, you can choose to participate in several adventures. This adventures are really helpful to increase HP, new equipment and learning new arts, because if you stick to the story related events on each character you won't develop your characters that much. Each town has it's particular set of adventures, related to events that are taking place. Many story related events happens on a place that just like a normal adventure; when this happens the adventure will be not accessible, so don't worry if you don't see a specific adventure in your quest. Every adventure can be successfully finished only one time and the quantity of the adventures is finite, so if you clear all the normal adventures there is no way to further improve your characters (Ventus quest is an exception). If you don't clear it, the adventure will be still there to be finished. But if you don't clear the adventure you won't have any skill development. So my advice is to only begin to make non stories related adventures when you have at least 5 characters in your group. If you do many adventures with a few characters, when you get the other characters there won't be many adventures to develop the status of the remaining characters. D ) Exploring the world On the course of the game, you will explore the world and visit another towns to advance the storyline or to accomplish one particular adventure. You will begin the game on the city, and if you check the world map there will be no other place to go, so you have to pick an adventure that take you out of that city and that leads to another city. - The world map Exiting a town access the world map. Then will appear a world map, you can only see the towns that you already visited in your quest. The world map also has the property that you can visit any town without passing in the field. - Choosing your characters Each main character can recruit 8 extra characters for the entire journey, but only 7 characters (including the main character) can participate on the adventures. Before each adventure you will have to select what characters will join you on the adventures. - The game screen If you haven't got on a particular city before, you must first cross the way to that city, so you will enter the "field" mode. When I refer to the field, it is the exploration mode that isn't the world map. The game screen of the field has a lot of information scattered around, and it's not that friendly to understand, how it can help you or even how it works, in the first place. In the regular field screen there is your "team", the roads, a picture with a short description of the location (in the upper left corner of the screen) that you are in the moment and the field options. The field options includes: SKILL - Check/Uses your skills in the field and see the event list. ITEMS - Check/arrange/quick-fix and discard non-equipped items. EQUIPMENT - Check/Trade equipment STATUS - See current status (HP/LP) and stats. For a better- detailed menu, press X on this screen (or press O on the field) QUIT - Quit the game, and save your progress. On the next game you can use continue to start from that point, but this save will be erased. - Moving your characters The game field is like a board game, and you control a "pin" into this field. You won't have freedom of movement; you can go to the places that game tells you. Many times the places to go are marked with (????). That shows you that it's a non-explored place. Sometimes there are several paths to go, but rest assured that every road has only one exit to the desired destination and you can't go to the other exits, so there isn't a way to get lost. The (????) will be marked in different colors: Blue - Low probability to encounter a monster Yellow - High probability to encounter a monster Red - Monster nest In all fields, there are dead ends, so you have to turn back. If you can't find the exit, most likely you forgot to check a place, so backtrack a little to find the place marked by a (????), and go there. There are also places that are only available if you have a correspondent skill (more later on). - Turns Every action that you perform on the field, including walking, resting or performing any skill counts as turns. Battles also count turns but much slower than a normal turn (a battle with 5 turns consumes 2 field turns). Several adventures requires that you finish the quest in less than a predetermined numbers of turns, if not you will leave the adventure. But keep in mind that you can try this adventure again, and all field covered in the previous try will be showed, but not the events needed to the conclusion of the quest nor the fixed treasures. E ) The events - Events Of course, a travel in a RPG isn't a vacation tour. So in these game several things can happen while travelling, can be as good as find a treasure chest or bad like facing an enemy. The game will inform you of the events, by a picture and the name of the event. So there is a list of things that can happen: TREASURE CHEST - Treasure chests are scattered by the world, there content can be equipment, materials and money (this is the only way to get money if you're not a carrier), but you have to open it first. There are 3 kinds of treasures: The chest (that may have traps and are locked), the bag (that may have only traps), and the skeleton (that doesn't have any traps). The game will inform the type of the treasure as well the level of the chest. The higher is the level of the chest, better will be the contents. Level 99 is the highest. ENEMY ENCOUNTER - You will encounter an enemy. A picture of the monster(s) will appear. The enemy may attack you or not. If they attack you, the battle will begin. If they not attack, you can attack him for a preemptive strike or you can escape for another location. A TRAP - In the field, there are several traps placed along the way. If you activate the trap, a person of the group will be chosen to try to escape of the trap, if they are successful, it will escape unharmed, but if not, they will receive damage. Traps also has a level; the higher the level of the trap, it will be harder to defuse or dodge it. OBSTACLES, RIVERS, STAIRS, DOORS ETC. - You can find these things on the adventures. Also have a level description. SWITCHES, LEVERS, ETC. - You can also find these things on the adventures. TETRA FORCE - Tetra forces are like saving points that always appears in the last dungeons of every main character quest. Also, they fill your HP and LP points. But beware, once you save inside the last dungeons you can't go out to the world map, so it's advised to create another file when you want to use a Tetra force. - The event list One of the most confusing things in the game, it's to know how to use the event list. When you choose SKILL on the field options, a screen will appear with HP, LP, etc. but in the upper part of the screen there are a list of pictures, each one represent an event. So if you want open a treasure chest that you see in the field, select SKILL, then select the treasure chest (with the directional button, not the analog one) and select action. But if the chest is locked? Below the "action" will appear the skill list. If you have the locksmith skill, select Skill, then select the treasure chest and select the locksmith that is below the action. Do that to any other events (doors, stairs, monsters, traps) in this game as well. If a skill can be used on the event, they will be on white color but the others skills that cannot be used will have the gray mark. - Kind of traps There are several kinds of traps on the field: some are in treasures chest to forbid the opening of the chest, some in the road to scare off clueless travelers. Use the defuse skill to defuse the traps. Chests - Needle (low damage), poison (medium damage), explosive (high damage, destroy chest contents), mimic (monster in the chest). Field - Falling tree (low damage), boulder (medium damage), pitfall (high damage), icicle (high damage) and drop ceiling (high damage). F ) Game parameters and skills/arts This game has several parameters: LP - It's like the HP on the others games, when you lost all LP the character will leave the battle. But if the main character get 0 LP, the game is over. The LP is fixed for every character and it can't be changed. In every completed adventure, the LP is replenished. You and your enemy can lose more than 1 LP for each hit taken. HP - It's works a meter for the resistance of a character /monster. In theory, when the HP is reduced to 0 you will lose one LP, and the following hits with 0 HP will also take 1 LP. This doesn't happen, though, because there are others factors like strength of the attacked and the armor and endurance of the defender involved in this. An attack performed by a character reduces his HP as well. The only way to replenish the HP is to rest in the field or leave a character out of the battle turn. The enemy has also a fixed LP, so no matter how much HP damage you inflict, if you not destroy its LP, the enemy will not be defeated. HP RECOVER - The rate that a character recovers his HP in the field. The valor varies to A (best recover rate) to E (worst); there are skills that improve the recover rate. ENDURANCE - Also works likes the HP, but when the endurance is low, the probability to lose LP (even if your HP is high) increases. But if you endurance is high, even if your HP is 0, you can avoid losing a LP. Every weapon attack performed by a character reduces his endurance as well. So if the battle drags too long the probability of you receiving great LP damage increases drastically. There some attacks that inflict endurance loss. At the end of every battle, the endurance is replenished. STRENGTH, MAGIC, SKILL, SPIRIT - Works as the same like others RPG's. This group is called Ability parameters (Endurance is also a ability parameter). WOOD, METAL, FIRE, EARTH, WATER - Improve magic use. This group is called Elemental parameters. DURABILITY - It's the value that indicated its durability of an equipment. When the durability is 0, the equipment lost its use. SKILLS - An ability that can help in most things in the game, that ranges of battle skills, to improve your fighting methods, to negotiate better deals in the shop. There are many skills in this game, and so you will have to customize the characters with your needs. ARTS - It's the different attacks that a weapon or a melee can perform. A particular weapon has different attack categories and each category has it's particular set of arts. You will learn new arts only in battle. G ) The reel system Probability is a factor very common in the RPG, but in Unlimited SaGa the probability is made in a very peculiar way: the reel system. The reel system can be translated as a wheel of fortune. And the player has to press the button to stop the reel and the icon that stopped will be the result. There are 2 kinds of reels: The events reel and the battle reel. The difference is in the results icons on the both reels. EVENT REEL - Green orb - Success Red X - Failure but you don't are penalized Dynamite - Failure and you are penalized BATTLE REEL (arts) - Green orb - Level 1 art Blue orb - Level 2 art Pink orb - Level 3 art Orange orb - Level 4 art (gun) - Red hit - Random shot Green hit - Shot Yellow hit - Shot White hit - Shot (magic) - Wood Earth Metal Fire Water The event reel is related to success of failure of using a skill in an event or escaping a trap. The green orb represents a success, that you used the skill successfully or escaped the trap. The red X shows failures, but like a little failure, if is a skill, you will not use it but you won't activate the negative effects (like activating traps in treasure chests when you try to unlock it), if is a trap you only take damage but only a parcel of the total. The dynamite shows a total failure, if is a skill, you will not use it and will activate the negative effects, if is a trap you will take full damage. The battle reel (arts) is related of using different arts in battle. In the beginning of the game you will only have one art, then the reel will only green. As you will learn new arts, others orbs with different colors will appear on the reel. The battle reel (gun) is related the success rate of the shot, red hit (worst) means miss or very little damage and white (best) is a critical hit of sorts. The battle reel (magic) is related to the use of magic, if you use water magic and hit the water icon on the reel, the damage will be greater, but if you hit the fire icon, the damage will be reduced. The reel of magic and gun, all icons are available from the start. If using a reel it's a nightmare for persons with low eye-hand coordination, fortunately there 2 things that worth mentioning: here is no time restriction on using a reel, and the reel sequence repeats endlessly, so take your time and let it roll many times until you get the feeling of the reel. Some skills works improving the probability of success on a reel, which means as higher is the level of the skill, more green orbs will appear. When it's an event reel, the chance of success with the reel its proportional to the level of the event (chest, trap etc.) and your skill level related to the event. When you begin to learn arts but your weapon skill level its low, the orbs of the battle reel will be much separated from each other, and there is only one orb by color, so hitting a high level orb is a matter of plain luck. But as your weapon skill grows, the high level orbs will be placed together, and there will be 2 orbs of the same color, so hitting the desired orb will become much easier, and in no time you will begin to hit the art that you want. As the event reel, there will be always a "hot spot" to press the button. This hot spot can be several green orbs placed together (high level skill) or a single green orb surrounded by red X (low level skill). If you are defusing a high level chest, with a low level skill try looking for the hot spot, especially when you are unlocking chests with explosive content, if you don't unlock it at least the chest won't explode. OBS: It seems that with some characters, there is a lag in the time that press the button, and the reel to stop. This can cause annoying outcomes, especially if you are good with the reel. But this effect only happens with the event reel, like unlocking or evading traps, in the battle reel this won't happen. In any case this lag not always happens, so look for the hot spots for a better probability of success. H ) The battle - The battle screen When you trigger a battle (intentionally or not), a battle screen will appear. Once you enter the battle, the rules are simple: You and your enemy will exchange blows and the one last standing is the winner. No items to use, or running away from the battle. The first thing is to select 5 commands and the enemy that you will perform the action. A command can be attacking the enemy, or using magic. The 5 commands can be that the same character attacks 5 times in a row or each one attacks once, or one character attacks 3 times and 2 others one time, so you have total freedom of choose your strategy of fighting. - Choosing a character The battle screen will appear. There will be a circle with every character and his HP/LP. And a white circle shows the number of remaining command that can be made. - Choosing an action After choosing a character, a screen will appear to choose an action related to that character. It shows every weapon and accessory equipped by that character, and also the melee and a familiar (if you have any familiar in the skill panel, more later on). Below the weapon, there will be the categories of that weapon/ accessory/ melee/ familiar. Only black categories can be chosen, the gray ones cannot be chosen. If a weapon has only grayed out categories, this weapon has 0 durability and can't be used. Also you can check the HP and endurance required to execute a action, pressing square or O buttons on the categories. Press X to choose the desired action and the enemy. Repeat that 5 times and the battle will begin for real. - The combo system When you choose the 5 actions, the battle will begin. The reel will spin and you have 2 options: GO or HOLD. If you choose GO (pressing X) the character will perform the action of the icon that you previously. If you choose to HOLD (pressing O), the character will try to combo with the next person, and the next person will be in the control of the main reel. If your 2 characters choose to HOLD as well, you will try to do a triple combo, and so on. You can do a maximum of a five-hit combo. When you successfully do a combo, the name of the combo will appear and the combo rate also will show up. The combo rate is related to the extra damage inflicted by a combo, if a combo rate was 130% that means the combo will deal damage 30% higher than done the hits by itself. A combo with more than 130% has a high probability of LP damage on the enemy. The advantage of the combo is that it will increase the damage inflicted in the enemy, with the last person of the combo makes the makes the great part of the damage. If the last person selects HOLD, you will only use the basic attack of the weapon category. - The enemy reaction Of course, the enemy will attack (and combo) like you do. The enemy doesn't have any restriction of numbers of turns. They can attack only twice (weak enemies) or even 7 times (bosses). And its order is unpredictable as well, but if you notice that the enemy group is attacking fast on the first turns, probably they will stop and open a window to combo. Combos do not always happened like you wanted to, because the enemy can break the combo. If the enemy breaks your combo, 2 bad things will happen, the first one is that the last blow it's the most powerful of the combo, and that you can't do high level arts if you have the combo breaked. There is an example of a combo breaked: You choose 4 HOLD, 1 GO: Hold Hold Hold Hold GO Attack - Attack - Attack - Attack - Attack The enemy chooses 2 GO, 1 HOLD GO GO Hold Attack - Attack - Attack Here's what happens in the game: You will have your combo breaked in the second character. There will be a 3-hit combo in total. The 2 ally characters will begin the combo, and your enemy will end it. The third ally character will also have its combo breaked. Two-hit combo with the ally beginning the combo, and the enemy end it. In the last turn, the enemy will begin the combo and the 2 ally characters will end it. That is just a possibility, but in the real game you won't know what your enemy is planning. Since the last person of the combo inflicts greater damage, trying to combo without much thought can make things worst, because if the enemy just breaks your combo again and again they will, in the end, inflicts massive damage on you. But always doing GO won't help you either. In difficult battles, since doing combo increases the possibility of draining LP of the enemy (your main objective) you have to take your chances and combo. So you have to find a way to combo the enemy, without giving the enemy chance to retaliate. It's a guessing game, but it's that makes the battles in this game so fun, but frustrating at the same time. - Team formation The basic formation is always the same with 3 characters in the front row, and 2 on the back row. The front row has a greater chance of being damaged by an enemy. If you choose fewer characters, you will fill first the front row then the back row. This can change with some locations, which can have variables kinds of formations. Also, there is a battle in tight spots that requires a maximum of 3 different characters. There are few situations in the game that requires one-to-one battle. - Battle tips Knowing the battle rules, there are some tips to help you out: 1 - If you want to score a greater damage without being much damaged in the process, leave the high HP/LP on the front row and leave the main character and the character with the most powerful skill for last. So make HOLD on the first 2 characters, this forces the enemy to break your combo and attack. You will receive greater damage, but if your characters are strong, even you lose some LP it compensates the trouble since the others 3 characters can combo without have much fear of has it combo break and being damaged in the process. If the initial HOLD trick does not work, you can play it safe, doing GO on the remaining 3 characters or risk a higher combo, it's up to you. The enemy AI is smart though, so they will change his strategy constantly. 2 - When you have more than 5 characters in your team, swap the front row once in a while, specially in boss battles. Leaving the same characters over and over, will deplete his endurance and they will die quickly. 3 - Use skills that reduce any parameters of the enemy. They can't be strong by itself, but in the long run it can save your life. Arts like brute force (punch), deadly palm (punch), aim (spear) and nutcracker (staff) destroy the defenses of the enemy. Use them on bosses and tough enemies. - Taking out a character When you have a character with blackout, sleep, or petrify status or even dead, they will remain in the battlefield until you take him out. To do take that character out you must choose the "rescue" option below in the melee attacks. This option always appears, but if you aren't with a character that can be taken out, this option will be inaccessible. As the stunned character is in the battlefield, his turn will be spend like a regular character. When you choose a character to rescue another, his turn as well will be lost (rescue counts as a action) but if think about it, you will replace for a good character and also you won't lose the stunned character turn. But not always a character can successfully rescue another, this depends of the build of a character, if he is tall and strong, the odds of a little girl carry him out of the battlefield are slim, so put a strong character when you try to rescue another character. - Game over The game will end if the main character gets 0 LP or all characters in the battlefield get 0 LP or are unable to make any actions. I ) Equipment, materials, skills and items - Equipment Each characters has several equipment that he can...well, equip. There are 2 weapons slots, 2 accessories, one head, one armor and one legging. The weapon that you can equip includes daggers, swords, axes, staffs, spears, bows and shields. You can equip 2 attack weapons or 1 attack and one shield (yes, you can equip 2 shields, and yes, you're dumb if you actually do that...^_^) - Materials Materials are items that only have utility in a blacksmith. They can be use to improve the durability of an equipment or to make new weapons. They materials can be find on the adventures or bought in stores. There are several types of materials, which can be further divided on 5 groups: Fire, Water, Metal, Wood and Earth. - Skills There are several skills in this game but 2 of them are of the most importance: Defuse and locksmith. These are truly essential skills that at least one person has to have all times. Others required skills are swimming and obstacle crossing. I like also the iron body skill, which reduces damage and LP loss probability. J ) Character, equipment and arts development - Character development In Unlimited SaGa they taken off the random character stats gained in every battle and created a different system. The character development can be only done on the end of every cleared adventure. The character HP will grow only for the characters that participated on battle in an adventure. You can gain one new skill and a status boost. Both are handled in the same way: The skills panel. You can check your skill panel only in the field. - Skill panel The skill panel looks like this: ___ ___ / \/ \ _\___/\___/__ / \/ \/ \ \___/\___/\___/ / \/ \ \___/\___/ After the end of the adventure, the game will choose randomly 4 skills for each character, so you pick a skill and place it in the skill panel. The harder is the adventure that you accomplished; the level of the skills will be higher as well. But even if you make the most difficult adventure, if you skills are low, you will grow, but a little bit, so if you have only levels 2 or 3 in your panel skill, the odds are that you will receive a level 4, not a level 5. The panel has 7 slots for skills, and when the 7 slots are full you will have to overwrite a skill, even if you won't to part with any skill you have. Each skill has 5 levels, as higher the level; the effects of the skill also will be higher. If the skill deals with the reel system, like unlock/defuse, when higher the level of the skill, the higher is the chance of success (more green orbs). Each skill has a category (symbol) and a definition of its use. There are different skills that are from the same category. OBS - Negative status (like phobia, seal weapon and pacifist) can be only being replaced with other negative status. The gauntlet skill, that is also a negative skill, cannot be replaced at all. Magic tablets don't count as one of the 4 skills that you receive, and you can place the magic tablet on every character. - Boosting status For boosting status there is 2 conditions that you have to notice. The first one is the skill that you are placing in the skill panel and the slot that you are putting in. The skill chosen will improve part of your status by the characteristics of the skill, just like Melee and weapons skills improves more STR, END and SKL than ELM and MAG and Familiars have the tendency to improve more MAG and ELM than STR. Keep in mind that the ELM skills like familiar do not improve all ELM, since a water familiar will improve water, fire familiar improves fire and so on. The others skills like negotiating, key and health have a more balanced status growth. The slot works like this. Every slot in the panel is related with a particular status parameter, so every skill putted on an empty slot will improve a parameter, following that rule: ___ ___ /STR\/SKL\ _\___/\___/__ /END\/ALL\/SPR\ \___/\___/\___/ /ELM\/MAG\ \___/\___/ Each slot affects the adjacent slot as well, so when you put a skill on the STR for example, the END and SKL will grow as well but in a smaller proportion. It's the reason why the middle slot improves all parameters. So the key for a powerful character lies in the combination of this 2 factors. You can put any skill in any slot that you like, but you won't have the best combinations, since if you add a powerful weapon skill (like Axe) in the first slot, you will improve more your STR than if you put in the last slot. Do not worry if you have the same combination of skills/slot on several characters but the growth is different. This depends on the characters, some characters are bound to have a strong STR and mage characters are bound to have a strong MAG. The limit for the all parameters is 80 points. To see the change of the status when placing a new skill, press the square button, making this you can evaluate the changes that placing a skill give to a character. There is also the panel bonus, which is a bonus that you receive if certain conditions are made: JOINT - It's the bonus that you receive by placing the skills with the same category in an adjacent slot, but not the center slot. LINE - It's the bonus that you receive by placing the skills with the same category in a line using the center slot. TRIANGLE - It's the bonus that you receive by placing the skills in a triangular shape, once again not using the center slot. JOINT LINE TRIANGLE ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ /JNT\/JNT\ /LIN\/ \ /TRI\/ \ _\___/\_ /__ _\___/\___/__ _\___/\___/__ / \/ \/ \ / \/LIN\/ \ / \/ \/TRI\ \___/\___/\___/ \___/\___/\___/ \___/\___/\___/ / \/ \ / \/LIN\ /TRI\/ \ \___/\___/ \___/\___/ \___/\___/ There is also an additional bonus that you receive if the skills that form the panel bonus are the same level. It is called same level bonus (duh!). So to have a good character, leave the fighting skills to the upper part of the screen, a good health skill on the middle slot and the lower part leave with skill like familiars, negotiating or key skills. - Weapon development Every weapon and equipment has 4 slots for development. When you buy or find equipment, it's common that it comes with only one slot with something. As you use the weapons or being hit with armor equipped, it can release new weapon category or ability at the end of every battle. But this development is made at random, so you can gain several things in just one battle or gain nothing for several battles. Weapon category releases a new set of arts, and ability can give you protections against several status and such. If equipment has already filled the 4 slots so it can't grow anymore. But equipment with 0 durability can learn new category, but it has to be equipped on a character. OBS: Guns haven't any category, or any arts. Just the normal shoot. - Arts development Arts development it's a tricky subject, so probably it's the most controversial section of this FAQ. You learn new arts as you will use a particular weapon category, but it's learning ratio (or learning at all) is a total mystery. A person can learn different arts per category, and in just one round 2 persons can learn an art, or even one person can learn 2 arts at once (it happens to me, once). There is no 'way' of learning arts, which means that you can learn a powerful art in the beginning of the game and don't learn the weaker arts forever. But, as the game says, practice makes perfect, and so use the desired category over and over, and eventually you will learn arts, - Tips for arts development Just remember to take that info with a bit of salt, that I cannot prove this factors: EVERYONE CAN LEARN ALL ARTS FOR MELEE ATTACKS WITH RELATIVE EASE, so just keeping using it and he/she/it will eventually learn these arts. Exception goes to the Hairdryer and Humming bird categories. THE START WEAPON OF A CHARACTER CAN BE A GOOD INDICATOR of that he will learn some arts of that weapon, but that don't mean that he will learn every single arts for every category with ease. THE LEARNING CAN BE ASSOCIATED WITH A BUILD OF A CHARACTER, if a character is strong, the probability to adapt to a heavy weapon like swords, spears and axes is greater; like small, weak characters are bounded to be good with daggers, bows and staffs. Of course, there are exceptions. A CHARACTER HAS AFFINITY WITH SOME WEAPONS, so if you use a particular character that appears in several quests (like Ruby), the chance that she has of learning an art that she already learn before in a previous game is huge. THE MAIN CHARACTERS HAS AFFINITY WITH VARIOUS WEAPONS. Basically that's true, but Armic and Judy that has serious problems at learning different weapon arts. FIGHTING STRONG FOES increases the probability to learn new arts. This is very important. Fighting a really strong foe (like the Giant in the Knight's Mausoleum or the Elder Dragons) can unlock more arts than 20 hours of normal quest. WEAPONS WITH LOW DURABILITY HAS BETTER CHANCE TO LEARN AN ART, it's probably the most controversial point, but I believe that's true. THERE IS SOME ARTS THAT IS JUST TOO HARD TO LEARN, some categories has trouble in releasing arts; just like saying that spear it's probably the worst weapon to learn anything. Particularly, I tend to keep distance from spears, even if my most powerful weapon its, guess what, a spear. - Magic learning and using it A) Learning magic Magic in this game don't use the same rules as weapon arts. There is 2 ways to learn magic: Learning magic from magic tablets or using a familiar skill. - Magic tablet Magic users like Judy requires magic tablets to learn new spells. Magic tablets can be found on adventures just like other items, but they can't be equipped. They work like a normal skill that you have to put in your skill panel. But that isn't enough, you must have your character begin the study of the magic tablet if they want to learn something, so select the main status screen (use the O button on the field), select magic tablet and select what magic tablet you want to learn. After selecting a magic tablet, on every single battle you can learn a little of the new spell, just like the weapons development, but also this happens at random. You can check out the learning rate of the magic by seeing how full is the learning bar. You can also accelerate the study by using the desired spell once for battle. Each magic tablet has 3 different magic to learn, and as soon as you complete the study, the magic will remain with you forever, even if you don't learn the others spells on the magic tablet, but if you stop the learning of the magic before the magic is fully studied, they won't be available. Fortunately, some characters begin the game with some magic on his sleeve, so avoiding wasting much time (learning magic from a magic table can be a very slow process). To use magic from a magic tablet, beside have equipped the magical tablet, you also must have a weapon/accessory that has the elemental compatibility of the magic that you want to learn. So if you want to use the purify magic (a water-elemental magic), you have to learn the purify magic from a magic tablet and also have a weapon/accessory with "water arts". Magic, like weapon arts, drains durability from the equipment that has the elemental arts. You cannot use any learned magic without any weapon/accessory. The best way to use magic in this game it's to use familiars. Familiars appears just like normal skills when you clear an adventure, and has a fixed, ready to use set of spells. To use a familiar, place a familiar skill in your skill panel. Using a familiar doesn't requires that you learn the desired magic (since each familiar has its own set of spells to use), not even it has an equipment requirement. So just equip the familiar and begin to use it. The bad side of using familiars is, beside taking space of the skill panel, it's the fact that familiars gives you only low-level spells. If you want stronger spells, you will have to learn them from magic tablets. K ) Random things - Carriers Ventus storyline will enable you to play as a carrier, that's basically a deliver guy. This works as a part-time job, which you can do between your adventures. Doing carriers is positive because: You can go to places that you can't go normally on your adventures, that you can get money (others characters relies only on treasure chests to get money) and your development will be quicker. To make carriers, go to the carrier guild (every city has one) and select a job. The owner of the guild will tell you what object that you will carrier, the city that you have to deliver, the difficulty of the carrier and the reward. Sometimes will be a carrier that is impossible to do because the difficulty is high and your carrier rank is low. As you are do carriers, you carrier rank will grow and you will be enabled do make more difficult jobs, and with better rewards. A carrier is just like a normal adventure but you have to pass all roads to the city of the deliver. An example is that you are getting a carrier in Torle to Loch Vaan; you have to pass in Iskandaria and Escata before reaching Loch Vaan. But each stop in each city worth like a full adventure. So in this example you will develop your skills and increase your HP 3 times. SO if you run out of adventures you can rely on making carrier to develop your status. Ventus story also requires that you visit a carrier guild once in a while. - Blacksmith When you use your weapons, its durability will diminish and eventually reach 0. On this time this weapon will lose it's use, but not the category or the arts learned so far. But the blacksmith can make that weapon work again; just go to a blacksmith and it can repair it. The blacksmith requires 2 things: A base item and an additional item. The base item is the item that you will work into. So if you want to repair a copper sword, you will put the copper sword as base item. The additional item works as the extra material make to improve the base item, like improving the durability or transforming the base item type into another one. It can be a material or other weapon as well. You can also make other things in a blacksmith. The first one is create a new weapon, with a material or other weapon. With a new material, just put the material as the base item. The weapon will be created based on the type of the material that you put on the base item. You can see the preview of the weapon created before doing the real thing. One good use of this it's that you can make powerful equipment of weaker things. A good example is an accessory with only 1 of defense, but it's made of dragon scale. So go to a weapon blacksmith, choose sword and put the armlet as the base item, and you can produce a mighty Dragonscale sword with 77 of attack (one of the most powerful weapons in the game). There is no restriction or penalty to change a bow to an axe, for example. The only thing that matters is the type of the material. But there are some restrictions: some types can't be used as base or additional item, like armors, leggings or helmets; and some kinds of materials can't be used as a base item, like angelite can't be used to build weapons, just accessories. OBS: Since in blacksmiths don't produce armors, helmets or leggings, the best way is to buy them in the inn's shops, or finding then on your adventures. - Clear game data When you beat a game with one character, the game will save on the system data the information that you finished the game with that character, so you can play several quests at once, without having to play one character at the time. To start with a new character, select NEW GAME from the main menu and choose the desired next character. The game only "ends" when you beat with all 7 characters. 5 - - CHARACTER WALKTHROUGH A ) RUBY Ruby is a carefree girl, which only objective on his mind is making a buck. One day, when his sister Sapphire, which is a respected fortuneteller and runs a fortunetelling store in Loch Vaan, reads the future to a man (Lord Burgundy) she only sees death, and she gets affected by the death visions that she saw. Now the store without his sister, it's the perfect cue to Ruby gets it hands on fortune telling herself, even if she don't have what it takes for the job. So, with the help of Hiro, she goes to make her own fame as fortune telling, even if she has to trick some people in the way. 1 - HERE, KITTY, KITTY, KITTY... So Ruby begins to make some readings of the future of the customers. She advises a guy that is in love with a girl, even if she hates this kind of subject. She also receives a girl with bad luck (Michelle) that wants to get rid of her curse, but Ruby says that she doesn't do rituals of purification. The girl leaves and Ruby calls it for a day. On the next morning, an old lady wants to know the whereabouts of his cat. Ruby says that the cat will return soon. Hiro asks that if it OK to trick an old lady like that. Ruby says to not worry, that she made a genuine reading. Ruby saw a vision of water and underground, and she figures that it is a well. Ruby and Hiro goes to the bottom of the dry well to find the old lady's cat. In this short dungeon, just find the rusty key, and use on the locked door, but a monster will appear. BOSS - Skull Crawler (1 LP) 2 - TO THE CAVES OF THE UNDEAD A middle-aged man comes for a reading of if she knows where is an old dagger. She says that the dagger is in the caves of the undead. And here goes Ruby to place an old dagger in the cave. Travel east, then north until you find a well. Leave old dagger in the north of the cave. There the middle-aged will see Ruby placing the dagger, but monsters will appear. He helps you. BOSS - Skull Crawler (1 LP) 3 - TRAVELS WITH ISKANDAR Iskandar figures out Ruby trick, and gives the dagger back. Sapphire says that Iskandar and her are going to a trip, Ruby begs to be with them, but Hiro can't go with them... In the forest Hiro joins them because he gets afraid to leave Sapphire behind. They trip to Zomar. 4 - TRAVELS WITH ISKANDAR: PART 2 Leave Zomar and cross the road to Wanda. There you can choose what to do, from now on. There are several adventures to go, that you can do before the main quest. But follow the story for now. 5 - TRAVELS WITH ISKANDAR: PART 3 Leave Wanda and cross the road to Escata. 6 - TRAVELS WITH ISKANDAR: PART 4 Even with Ruby getting bored of the journey, they leave Escata and cross the road to Iskandaria. When you camp, there is a conversation between Ruby and Sapphire. Ruby asks what was that man fortune that makes Sapphire acting weird ever since. She says that the man is looking for the mysteries of the seven wonders. She says that death surrounds the conquest of the seven wonders, and she thinks that she is one of the people that will die. So she is travelling to have her own fortune read, and Iskandar knows a place that there is a great fortuneteller. She also says that Ruby has powers that surpass Sapphire's. Ruby has a hard time to believe in that. Eventually you will reach Iskandaria. 7 - TRAVELS WITH ISKANDAR: PART 5 This is the final part of the trip. They finally leave Iskandaria and go to the city of Torle. Reaching there, Iskandar says that Torle is the birthplace of the great wizard Leith Torles, and his family also has extraordinary powers. Go to the house of Leith Torles, and you will welcome by an old lady. Sapphire tells her about that she is too afraid of making more predictions. She will say that she isn't the one that is afraid, looking to Ruby. Ruby acts tough as ever, and they leave the house. Some time later, return to the house. Iskandar says that the only way to know if the visions will come true it's to confront the fear itself: The seven wonders. Iskandar will give you the location of 6 quests for the seven wonders. The last one, he says, it's inaccessible for now. 8 - THE SEVEN WONDERS Now you have the freedom to go any quest you want to: If there is a town you hasn't went before, just select the seven wonder quest relative to that town, that you will transported to there. There are some events that only happen with Ruby's quest but the seven wonders dungeons are the same for everyone, so go to the seven wonders section of the FAQ to directions. To select another seven wonders quest, go to Torle, in the house of Leith Torles. UNDERCITY PHAROS (Iskandaria) A guy will hit Ruby in the way to Undercity Pharos. After that a girl will enter the dungeon also. So Mythe will request to join you in the trip to Pharos, he says, until he finds "her"... Just before the last room you will find a triangle-shaped thing called the tetra force. He will let you save permanently, refill you HP/LP AND develop your skill. A gift from heaven, really. Now you will face Pharos's boss. BOSS - Samurai master (7 LP) 6 Dragonid (4 LP) After that the energy is restored in Pharos. Ruby carries the Tetra force outside of Pharos. The girl you met at the entrance introduces herself as Jeanne Maure, a temple knight. She thanks Ruby's group for not letting Galeos reach for the secrets of the seven wonders. Ruby is really surprised to see a Temple Knight so young; she even gives the Tetra force to Maure. Iskandar says that he was a bad idea to let the knights have the Tetra force. Ruby has an argument with him, and says that he is only an impostor of the Iskandar, the hero that build Iskandaria. He only says that the Tetra force is needed to reach the last seven wonder and Ruby realizes her mistake. STARSHIP ANCHOR (Chapa) On the entrance of the Starship, you will see a vampire (Kalandorn) and an Anubito (Dagul Bos), arguing to what their points in being there. After that 2 men's (called Yun and Clyde) keeps struggling by who will discover the wonders first and get more powerful than Leith Torles. Ruby sees it, and gets annoyed by realizing that their quest turns out to be like the Wacky races. Fortunately, a girl called Grace joins the party to get a closer look on the wonders. After Ruby's team completes the Starship Anchor, Ruby says that this time she will keep the Tetra force that she found on the temple. Jeanne Maure keeps watching Ruby's activities. DEITIES TABLE (Solophero) BOSS: Giant Bird (7 LP) After clearing the quest, Ruby will retrieve another Tetra force, but this time Jeanne asks that she can keep this one. Ruby says that it's OK but the next one is theirs. Jeanne leaves, but Ruby notice that her is becoming a little bit obsessed with the Tetra force. (OPTIONAL - BUT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) Now that you have cleared this quest, you can see the Regina Leone festival. Go to the Iskandar plaza, sit down and watch a wonderful CG!!! Ruby will take care of a fortune-telling tent, but there isn't much people wanting a reading. When finally a Chapa comes near (Armic), the firework begins, and he soon disappears. There is some dancing going on, and so Ruby invites Mythe to dance, he resists a little but they start to dance. But then, Mythe leaves her in the middle of dance. Ruby gets sad, but then the memorial fire ritual begins, and Ruby looks dazzled to the fire mural. Back on Torle, when you will choose the fourth seven wonders quest, the old lady appears again. Sapphire asks her why she isn't afraid at all of make more predictions, even if she were right after all, she will die by her own predictions. She lady says that Sapphire trusts her powers so much, that when she actually dies, she will be happy after all. The old lady, turns to Ruby and says that the person is really afraid is Ruby. She also says that no matter what she does, she will never be as strong as her sister Sapphire. Ruby denies for a while, but then she starts to cry and say that she doesn't want to be alone, and for that she must be just like her sister and runs off the house. Sapphire goes after her. Iskandar says that the old lady was pretty cruel, but she says that the persons must hear the truth once in a while. Iskandar reveals also that he saved the old lady, many years ago, but she says that she doesn't remembers it. Hmmm... FLYING ISLAND (Vaftom) In the way, you will meet a very, very fat guy named Roy. He says that he will follow you as long as there is food available. BOSS: Elder Dragon (8 LP) As you are about to leave, Jeanne steal the Tetra force that you found. Ruby says that it's wasn't they agreed. Jeanne replies furiously that it's better having her guard it that possible leave to fiends or the Anubito and runs off. Ruby says that Jeanne really changed, for the worst. NAKLE LINES (Wanda) In the beginning of the quest, you will join the most unusual character in this game: Anzan, the petran. He is a rock with eyes, that is just silly. BOSS: Tegar (8 LP) Just in case, Ruby hides the Tetra force and leaves quickly. Jeanne appears but Ruby has already left. Jeanne looks furious. TWO MOONS TEMPLE (Kimbali) On the entrance of the Two Moons temple, an arrogant priest obsessed with strategies and balance of the nature will approach Ruby's team to try to preserve the seven wonders legacy. BOSS: Demons (8 LP) 3 Demons (3 LP) On the outside, Jeanne tries to take the Tetra force by force. Jeanne says that who will oppose her is "the instrument of evil", and attack Ruby with a strong power. Ruby passes out. On the next scene, you will see 2 persons: A girl and a powerful- looking men. He is called Iskandar, and the girl is called Alyce Ambrosia. He tells the girl that he have to seal Pharos. Ruby says that she is Ruby and not Alyce. Next scene, there are 2 other persons: a mage and a young man, the wealthy man calls the mage Leith Torles and says that he has to defeat Draco Archaeos. Leith Torles calls the man Iskandar as well. Ruby realizes that is a dream, but it fells so real. The last scene shows a girl just like Ruby and an old man. The old man says to the girl that she must really do it. The girl says to Iskandar (yes, he is also Iskandar) that she unlocked the secrets of the arcane magic and get the most powerful magic on the world, and says if in "another world" Iskandar is invincible, here is just an old man. Ruby notice her semblance with the girl...and feel uneasy. But she sees the face of Hiro and wakes up. Go to the Leith Torle home, and the old lady says if they look for the answer that she is looking for. Sapphire says that her powers are that only a prediction, not a special power or as definitive as she thought. Ruby says that she must not worry for the future too much, and she will live for the present, not by the future. Iskandar then asks to both girls to make a predicament of the travel to the Hanged Garden. Sapphire says that she had the same vision, the end of the world, but Ruby says that she also saw the end, but the beginning of a new one. Now it's the time for you to make the adventures that remains and equip with the strongest equipment. Also improve your weapons in the blacksmith. There is no turning back when you get in the hanged garden. HANGED GARDEN Ruby asks if with only 2 Tetra forces they can reach the Hanging Garden. Iskandar says, "Remember that I am Iskandar, even if have one Tetra force, reaching there will be very easy". Ruby gets annoyed with Iskandar preposterous attitude, and thinks about all the troubles to get every single Tetra forces. But anyway, you are already here, so it's no use complaining. Once again, look for the seven wonders section to detail to how to cross this seven wonder, but in this quest with Ruby, the season is fixed on spring and there is no season puzzle to do. Now that is good news. When you reach the end of the garden, Jeanne will be there as well. She will say that she is the savior of the world and will try to defeat you. BOSS : Jeanne Maure (23 LP) 4 Jeanne guards (8 LP) She isn't that strong but she will use the powers of the tetra force to turn on a huge monster. It's time to face the last boss. BOSS : Chaos (20 LP) Each character will talk a little bit. When you defeat this form, this will release a "mask" (hidden power) for 2 times. But when your release a new mask, his HP will be zero, so the LP will be drained from every powerful hit. These 3 forms aren't that powerful; just change constantly the front row to minimize the LP damage received. Chaos (26 or 16 LP) Chaos (12 LP) Now the final form will appear, he has some very nasty attacks like Overkill that inflicts 800~1000 of damage and he also full health, so it will take a while to begin to reduce his LP. The advice that I give you is to protect Ruby and don't fight with 5 characters at the same time, because most of it's attacks get everyone. DO NOT TRY TO COMBO IN THIS FORM. I know that it's superhard, but YOU CAN WIN. Chaos (20 LP) After you defeat Chaos, you be released from the other dimension and the Hanged Garden disappear as well. You will wake up in the ruins of the hanged garden, and Hiro asks Ruby if the next objective is to destroy the others 6 wonders as well. Ruby says that the future don't rely on the wonders, but in the heart of people. Hiro says he hopes that the persons have big hearts to compensate Ruby's. Ruby gets furious and chases him but they both end up in the floor, in a quite romantic scene... THE END... B ) VENTUS Ventus is a cheerful guy that is making a living being a carrier (Carriers is the job to deliver things in far away lands). He has a weakness for cute girls (even though he doesn't make much success with them). Briza, his brother, was a fairly know carrier that was killed on one of his travels, and now Ventus searches for this brother murderer and also being a good carrier in his travels. 1 - TEAM LAFARLE: PART 1 Ventus arrives at the carrier's guild, and tries to get some info about Briza last job. He also gets his first job as a carrier: a letter to Longshank, and the last place that his brother went: The Fugar mansion in Longshank to deliver the Dragonheart, a bottle of wine. As Ventus gets on the end of the road, he finds a palace. On the terrace, Ventus interfere in a discussion with a girl and a man over a bottle of wine. Trying to "protect" the girl, he challenges a man called Kalandorn Alovi, but he is quickly defeated. Kalandorn says that he will spare his life for his "family", and the girl leaves without apologizing. Go back and you will see a copy of Briza order, he realizes that Kalandorn was his brother killer. 2 - TEAM LAFARLE: PART 2 Zomar, tropical village. You will see a flashback scene, with the girl in the terrace. Ventus arrives and get on her nerves. When Ventus is preparing to go to Longshank, Tiffon says that she wanted to go with him. Just make the way to Longshank, that is beyond the forest. In Longshank go to the carrier's guild and deliver the letter. They will talk about Briza. Ventus gets impressed with how people remembered his brother. After that, go to the Fugar mansion. After mentioning the Dragonheart, Fugar will come and talk you. He will say that Dragonheart is a very rare vintage wine, and Briza was supposed to deliver the dragonheart to him, but he doesn't say much more than that. Tiffon says it's up to Ventus to form Team Lafarle (his brother carrier team) once again. Ventus suspects about Tiffon motivations, but they go forward anyway. 3 - GET THAT PACKAGE BACK Go to the carrier guild, and pick any job that goes to Longshank. This way you will find Francis, a knight working for Galeos, that is looking for a carrier that stole the package that he was supposed to deliver. Ventus proposes to help to find the carrier (you can go directly to Longshank if you want but you won't get Francis). In the end of the road you will find the thief, and so, Francis will join you in your quest. When you arrive in Longshank, you will find a bulking man hanging around (Vearst). Go to the carrier guild, and the dispatcher says that he has a work to Iskandaria but he will give the job only if you have a bodyguard. Tiffon convinces Vearst (but he is really a chicken wuss) to pretend that he is a bodyguard. So you get the job. Next stop, Iskandaria. In the middle of the trip, just before you reach Escata, the package is stolen. Tiffon says that it was work form Dagul Bos minions, so they go to Dagul Bos castle reclaim the item. Ventus mentions that Dagul Bos was the Anubito that destroyed Escata. They sneak into the castle. The castle is full of Dagul Bos minions and monsters. Go west and get to the basement. In the castle basement, Ventus has the idea of releasing the prisoners to cause confusion on the castle defenses. There you will find an Anubito named Musol that will help you. Go back by the same place you went before and go up the stairs. You will find the package AND the Dragonheart, but you will face tough monsters on the way back and you will drop both in the floor below. Go downstairs and look out southeast for the place that the package is. There you will find Kalandorn. He will let you escape with only one of the items. Ventus runs with the package. He justifies saying that, for carriers, the package is more important than personal matters. 4 - PACKAGE FOR THE KNIGTHHOOD I recommend doing some adventures before starting this quest and buy some stronger weapons and armors as well. It's also a good time to recruit the final optional characters. You can get Ruby by getting a carrier job in Loch Vaan, outside of the carrier guild, Ruby will join you. Thomas it's the other optional character. You can find him in the first time that you go to the Valley of the Swords. Thomas it's Judy's father, but he has amnesia since he fall of a cliff in the Valley of the Swords. In Longshank, the carrier guild has another job for you. Deliver a box to a temple knight called Jeanne in Vaftom. You will reach Vaftom by boat. By the time you arrive, it's the middle of the Regina Leone festival. An anubito guy will mess with you but a guy (actually is Kurt, but Ventus doesn't know him) will come to your rescue. When you arrive at the knight mausoleum, you will find that the temple knights are taking care of the Dragonheart. Ventus realizes that has more than one Dragonheart in the world, and thinks that Kalandorn will look for it also. Jeanne gets the box, and since it's written Maximilian Burgundy in the remittent, she trusts the content of the box. When she opens it, a swarm of monsters appears. It's up to you to defend the Dragonheart. The knight's mausoleum is a gigantic dungeon, which goes round and round forever. You will begin in a place called the core. Mark this place, as you will have to return here later. Go south, and follow all the way into a floor called the Hades corridor. When you get there, don't climb a ladder up or down, instead look for a room with a gem. In this place, Kalandorn says for a man to steal it, Tiffon says that is the ensanguined league. The boss attacks. BOSS - Undead (9 LP) This boss has the deadly Phantom Shark attack and the Seal of the abyss. After that return to the core (the start point) and you will see Kalandorn escaping. Ventus asks Tiffon what is the ensanguined league. It seems that they were once humans that sell its obligance for Kalandorn. In the last scene, the memorial fire ritual begins symbolizing the departing of the soul of dead persons and the end of the Regina Leone festival, that they set fire on dry grass in a mountain. The fire makes a dragon symbol. Ventus, thinking in his dead brother, says that Kalandorn will pay. 5 - TO THE GREAT WIZARD TOWER Sometime later the Mausoleum incident, Tiffon says that, in Nivacolina, there is a tower build by the great wizard Leith Torles that has something unnatural in it. Ventus says that Torles was the first person to defeat a dragon. They decide to check it out if the tower has something with the dragonheart. You can go to Nivacolina by the main map if you been there before. If you don't, take a job to there (in Wanda, Loch Vaan or Kimbali always has jobs that goes to Nivacolina). In Nivacolina, gather information and you will find a mercenary that has been in the tower before, his name is Mordeus and his only wish is to die in battlefield. Entering the tower you will notice that a Dragonheart just like the you find in the Knights mausoleum is in there, Ventus will say that the Dragonheart is actually crystallized hearts of dragons, made by Leith Torles himself. But there is a catch, though; the Dragonheart has a seal in it so you must go up in the tower to break the seal. The second floor has a magic circle that you will transport to continuation of the stairs. The third floor requires defeating the assassins (3 LP) to unlock secret passages. Backtrack a little to find out the places. You must kill 3 bunches of assassins to unlock all places in this floor. The fourth floor has several magic circles but only 2 of them advances to the next floor, one of them is to the west and the other is the center of the floor. The fifth floor is a circular floor (just like the first) and the sixth floor is the seal floor. Ventus says that breaking the seal might not be the best idea, since Kalandorn will get it more easily, but Tiffon says it's too late to turn back. Ventus agrees and keep forward. In this room there are 5 bridges leading to 5 different seals. Each one has a guardian beast protecting it, so you must defeat the guardian beast to break the seal, some of them ridiculous strong others just average. But you won't have to face all the guardians to advance in the story, just 3 of them. Since has tough bosses in here is a good place to master new arts. But if you are weak and has low LP just face the giant bird (red), the giant beast (White) and Elder dragon (Yellow seal), but beware, the elder dragon is one of the ridiculous strong kind. RED SEAL - Giant birds (6 LP) BLUE SEAL - Ajatar (12 LP) BLACK SEAL - Aquans (9 LP) WHITE SEAL - Giant beast (6 LP) YELLOW SEAL - Elder Dragon (9 LP) After breaking the seal you will be transported into the Dragonheart room, so get the Dragonheart, but strange humans will capture you... 6 - THE ENSAGUINED LEAGUE HIDEOUT You will be thrown in the ensanguined league prison. You must break free and recover the Dragonheart. If the available options won't work (Make a commotion or fake an illness), there is a vent that leads to the corridors of the prison. After that, go to the prison lookout and escape to the second floor from there. You will get on the second floor, if you have some spare time in this floor has good treasures, but you eventually will have to climb up to the third floor. After that, you will see the ensanguined league talk some gibberish like the blue lazulia and the scarlet rosaria and free the Dragonheart from their current state. Ventus only looks concerned when they put the Dragonheart in a bottle of wine. Ventus then break into the room, gets the Dragonheart back and gives to Tiffon. But in their escape route, Kalandorn corners them, and the last resort is the terrace. When Ventus is ready to jump, Tiffon gives the Dragonheart to Kalandorn. She says that she is scared of him, and Ventus (finally) realizes that Tiffon is Elle, Briza girlfriend. Ventus accuses Tiffon to betray his brother. Kalandorn says that Briza were controlled by him and ordered Briza to kill Tiffon, but instead he killed himself. Kalandorn also says that he needs the Dragonheart powers to defeat Phantom and the Round Table, a group that commands the dark forces and he also are controlled by them. Ventus gets confused and angry and faces Kalandorn. But before the battle insures, a voice saying to Kalandorn that he underestimate the round table powers, gives the final verdict, taking his life. But before disappearing, Kalandorn says to Ventus look for the Dragon's Haven. Ventus is even more confused, who is the round table? Unfortunately, Tiffon is no longer with them. 7 - THE DRAGON'S HAVEN Looking for answers, Ventus goes to the Storm Crevice in Kimbali, home of the Dragon's Haven. Go to the right, and you will notice the stone monument, read it, and keep going. Do not go down into the hole just yet, later you will thanks that tip. You will reach the fang stone. Look into the storm and a monster will come out. BOSS: Magiwinger (9 LP) After that you will get into a dungeon of sorts, but isn't very huge, but is crowded with monsters all the way. Just keep going, until you find a hole to descend. Now you will see a thing called the "arbiter's eye", there are closed and opened eyes on the floor. When you step into a open eye, you will face an Elder dragon (~10 LP), EVERY SINGLE TIME you step into a open eye, so only cross in the places that has closed eyes on it, even if means to retreat a little. It's very hard to cross without facing at least one dragon, but if you get this far it won't be a dragon that will stand in your way, right? Just take it easy and cross it. In the last section, Ventus will notice that there is the final rest place for the dragons. The Lord of the dragons will lend Ventus the last Dragonheart but, in exchange, he must seal the others Dragonhearts when it's all over for the sake of their ancestor, Draco Archaeos. When he is leaving, Tiffon comes and talks how she entered Ventus group by Kalandorn wish, but Ventus believes in her. And his only goal now is to defeat the round table. 8 - JUST YOU WAIT, ROUND TABLE Ventus knows that the Undercity Pharos in Iskandaria is the hideout of the round table. But when they get there all ways are blocked. Ventus doesn't have any other option but to go back for now. In the Iskandaria inn looking for information, Ventus meets a singular person: a woman with silver hair, that speaks an almost impossible to understand language. She asks Ventus if he already went to Tal'fa Palacaleo. Ventus realizes that she is talking about the Undercity, but he manages to tell her that there is no way inside because of a giant door. The silver girl says that she will command it to open. Ventus joins her in her quest. Notice: You don't have to get the silver girl in your active party when you go to Pharos. The Undercity pharos is one of the seven wonders and the walkthrough of this place is in the specific section of the FAQ. Go there for details, because this is one of the most difficult dungeons of the game. When you get in the second floor after powering up the undercity, a circular corridor will be there. So go to the chamber of the round table, and face the Round table. BOSS: 8 (one at the time) knight of the round table (6 LP) Phantom (8 LP) OBS - You will face the first 8 knights with only 3 characters at once. This is one of the most difficult battles ever; just use everything that you got. When you finally think that it's over, Kalandorn will appear and say that the last battle is in the Two Moons Temple. 9 - SHOWDOWN WITH KALANDORN Needless to say that if is there anything left to do, do it now. Equip you characters with the best armor and weapons and go to the temple. Like Pharos this is also a seven wonders quest, so the walkthrough for the dungeon isn't here. There is also a Tetra force there but use it at your own risk. In the last chamber, Kalandorn will face you one last time. Do not have mercy!!! BOSS: Kalandorn (10 LP) After that he will get serious...but don't be afraid...yet. Kalandorn (10 LP) Now that he is defeated, he uses the powers of the Dragonheart and the 2 moons force to create a new being. But your health will be restored, even LP. Chaos (20 LP) Each character will talk a little bit. When you defeat this form, this will release a "mask" (hidden power) for 2 times. But when your release a new mask, his HP will be zero, so the LP will be drained from every powerful hit. These 3 forms aren't that powerful; just change constantly the front row to minimize the LP damage received. Chaos (26 or 16 LP) Chaos (12 LP) Now the final form will appear, he has some very nasty attacks like Overkill that inflicts 800~1000 of damage and full health. The advice that I give you is to protect Ventus and don't fight with 5 characters at the same time, because most of it's attacks get everyone. I know that it's superhard, but YOU CAN WIN. Chaos (20 LP) Chaos is finally defeated, and Ventus finally get it's revenge. Some time later, Tiffon is working on a carrier guild when a carrier appears. It's Ventus, ready for a new job. On his jacket, the name "Team Dragonheart" is written. Tiffon thinks about how things turned out in the end, and thinks about Briza. Ventus goes to his new future... THE END C ) LAURA Laura is an ex-pirate that abandons her buccaneer's life for living with a teacher named Pablo. Being a pirate for so long took a reflection on Laura's personality, so she is restrict, talks only when necessary and she is quite good with weapons. In one of his trips, Pablo dies and Laura goes to his funeral. In his funeral, the fate of two persons will come together... 1 - THE ROAD TO VAFTOM: PART 1 In Nivacolina, on his husband funeral, Laura protects a kid that is being chased by monsters. He reveals himself as Henri, prince of the ancient Escata kingdom, that it's now destroyed. He is also the only remaining person of the royal lineage of Escata. Laura asks Henri what were those monsters and what he will do now, but he simply don't know what to do. He says, however, that he went to Vaftom when he was a child and his mother was born there as well. So Laura decided to join Henri to Vaftom without asking anything. The first stop in his travels is Wanda. In Silver Hills, near Wanda, a group of monsters ambush Laura and Henri. BOSS : Pursuer (2 LP) 4 Guchie (1 LP) 2 - THE ROAD TO VAFTOM: PART 2 In Wanda, ask for information at the inn and find Judy. It seems that Judy are looking for her mother and Henri asks if Judy can join them. Laura gets angry since now there is 2 kids to her take care of. Next place to go it's the port town of Longshank. Leave Wanda and in the end of the way to Zomar, a group of monsters are waiting for Henri arrival. BOSS : Pursuer (2 LP) 4 Insects (1 LP) Judy says that is cool that he is a prince, but Henri doesn't think so. He thinks if he weren't royalty, his parents would still be alive. 3 - THE ROAD TO VAFTOM: PART 3 In Zomar, they make a quick stop. Next, Longshank and from there it's only one boat to Vaftom. Also there are monsters looking for Henri, but you can handle them more easily now. BOSS : Pursuer (2 LP) 3 insects (1 LP) 4 - THE ROAD TO VAFTOM: PART 4 In Longshank, ask about some information at the inn and you will learn about an inventor named Mythe, but he disappeared a while ago. There is a woman named Michelle, that she is looking for Mythe. She says that she has a very bad luck. Henri quickly tries to help her but Laura says no this time, they start to argue but the girl leaves. Oh well, till next time. The get on the boat, there they find Michelle again (now that is bad luck...^_^). She complains about her bad luck and her destiny, but Laura says that the destiny is the people that make it. On this moment, a passenger screams "Ghosts!!". Laura says if she wants to help to come now. Explore the ship (there is some good treasures as well) and on deck of the ship, there are some monsters that are looking for Henri as well. BOSS : Pursuer (2 LP) Birds (1 LP) 3 White Windsor (3 LP) On the final of the trip, Laura will say that the Regina Leone festival has already begun. 5 - THE RETURN TO ESCATA As you reach Vaftom, go to Iskandar square. In this wonderful CG, Ventus (always him) stumbles in Henri, Henri gets scared but Laura tells him it's all right. But the festivities amazes Henri and Laura has a hard time looking out for him. In the Memorial fire ritual, Henri realizes that now he is without his parents, but there is someone suffering as well, that it's Laura. Henri says that this was the first and last time that Laura was crying. On the next day, go to the Iskandar plaza again, you will go to the Escata royal mausoleum. Henri will tell Laura the reason that some Escata's mausoleum are located all around the world, especially in Vaftom. It's seems that a king named Foulant, was the first to start this tradition in respect to Iskandar. Henri will say that the Blade of Escata it's the only relic left for him by his parents. In the mausoleum, there is a secret passage opened by the blade of Escata. There are inscriptions that the blade was a gift given by Iskandar to the king Fouland, the first ruler of Escata, and the material of the blade contains the 5 elements. Laura says that it's up to Henri find the reason that his kingdom was attacked and the mystery of the Blade of Escata. On the outside, Lord Basil Galeos, old friend of the Escata royal family, finds Laura's team. He convinces Henri to go with him to Galeos castle, and he leaves Laura behind. Laura is drinking in the inn and asks to Pablo what she will do now, but Henri appears and says that he want to go to Escata with her. Laura accepts and a Galeos bodyguard (Francis) goes with him as well. On the middle of the trip to Escata, Laura sees Francis writing a letter to Galeos and then, she realizes that Francis is a spy to Galeos, so she makes quite a commotion. He says that Galeos has to be informed because Henri it's the last royal blood of Escata. Laura also realizes that she never does that to anyone and that she more emotionally involved with Henri than she expected. 6 - AT THE ESCATA RUINS In Escata, go visit the ruins of the Escata palace. The objective it's to reach the Library located in the first floor. If you have the obstacle crossing skill, this will be easy. It's room to the east of the entrance. If you haven't this skill, take the right stairs, go to the north and get the descending stairs. On the first floor, and go to the southeast and reach the library. There will have 5 books telling the truth of the blade of Escata. The first book says that the King Foulant gives the Ring of Jupiter to the Lileans. He also says that elemental gears have to be reunited to the Blade of Escata. In the second book, Foulant says that the Crown of Ares goes to the Galeos House. The third book, Foulant says that the chest of Behemoth goes to the Petrans; he also says that the gears have the power of the 5 spirits. The fourth book, he says that the Gloves of Venus goes to the Anubito, he also that the blade and the 5 elements combined can make the supreme power. The last book says that Foulant gives the boots of Vayu to the Chapas and he says that only his descendants have the power to overcome the Seven Wonders. At the outside, Laura realizes that the destruction of Escata and the search for Henri was only to get the Blade of Escata. Henri says that Dagul Bos want the blade, but he became afraid to involve Laura. But they go after the 5 elemental gears. 7 - THE ELEMENTAL GEARS Now, you have the possibility to choose the adventure to get all elemental gears. There are 4 adventures and the last gear (the crown of Ares), you can get anytime you want going to the Galeos Castle (it's in the world map). Each gear that you collect improves the attack of the Blade of Escata by 7 points, and you don't have to equip the elemental gears in Henri to get this effect. THE EARTH ELEMENTAL GEAR - A petran named Anzan will follow Henri in his quest to retrieve the chest of Behemoth. It's the same adventure of Iskandaria "Cave of murals", but the boss is different this time. BOSS : Kummi (4 LP) THE WOOD ELEMENTAL GEAR - A lillean named Platyphyllus will follow Henri in his quest to find the ring of Jupiter. The ring of Jupiter is on the middle of the Jade Forest maze. When you are in the Jade Forest maze, go south and you will eventually find the Ring of Jupiter. But you will have to fight a boss. BOSS : Jumbo Moch (7 LP) THE WATER ELEMENTAL GEAR - A chapa named Armic will follow Henri in his quest to find the Boots of Vayu. The boots of Vayu are in the end of the Regal Lion's Hideout. Look for the adventure section in Loch Vaan to directions. But there is no boss in there, so grab the Dragonscale knife before getting the boots. THE METAL ELEMENTAL GEAR - An anubito named Musol Yanil will follow Henri in his quest to find the Gloves of Venus. The Venus gloves are in Mines. Look for the adventure section in Vaftom "Danger in the mines" for directions. Also the boss is the same: BOSS : Jestor Y (4 LP) But unfortunately, the gloves aren't there. Musol says that only an anubito can take the gloves from its place, so Dagul Bos must have taken them. After clearing all elemental gears adventures, Henri have to invade Dagul Bos castle to retrieve the Venus gloves. But he is afraid to take the blade and the elemental gears in Dagul Bos palace. So Francis gives the idea to leave all elemental equipment with Galeos and go to the Bos palace, Henri likes the idea but Laura don't, but she don't say anything. Now go to the Galeos castle. In there, Basil will keep the Elemental gears, and he will be praying for the prince success. Laura says if he really wanted to help, then he would join them on the raid in Dagul's castle. Henri says that he wouldn't do that, and that his only role it's to take care of the elemental gears as long as they are at Dagul Bos. 8 - DECISIVE BATTLE AT DAGUL BOS CASTLE This section can be found in the adventure section in Escata "The castle of Dagul Bos". Don't forget to equip all the characters that have an elemental gear in the previous adventures. If not, they will be left without any equipment. In Dagul Bos castle, you will face Dagul Bos and his minions. He will say that he will face all enemies alone and he wants a one-to-one fight with the prince, and will see if the prince is a good match for him. BOSS : Dagul Bos (27 LP) When Dagul Bos is finally defeated, he says that was a matter of time that Escata were destroyed, and say that that city was rotten from the inside, a clear reference that Escata´s fall were forced by the corruption of the Escata´s rulers. Henri gets his revenge and the Glove of Venus as well, but he felt uneasy with Dagul Bos last words. Were Henri parents traitors of the people of Escata? Laura says that he must hurry to Basil's castle. 9 - GALEOS THE TRAITOR This section can cause serious problems if you are weak, so take your time and improve your characters before going into this quest. Go to Galeos Castle, and Basil will say to Henri that you played your role, bringing all the elemental gears to him. Laura says that she suspected as much and that Dagul Bos was only a decoy to cover the truth. She says that Francis also betrayed her as well, but he says that he doesn't knew a thing about it. You go after him, but some monsters are in the way: BOSS : 4 minotons (4 LP) On the inside of the castle, another powerful monster appears: BOSS : Ajatar (9 LP) After that you will face Basil and his dragon, but he is a tough cookie to beat. BOSS : Basil Galeos (14 LP) Basil will run away to a seven wonder ruins: the Nakle lines. 10 - ON GALEOS TRAIL OK, this is it. The last dungeon, of course, if you forget to do something, do it before you enter here. On the entrance of the Nakle lines, Henri asks Laura why she is helping him for so long, she says that Pablo brought the 2 of them together and both lost dear persons, so they are connected somehow. Everyone goes after Galeos. The Nakle lines is just like the seven wonders adventure, so go to this section for information. On the end of it, Galeos will tell you that the Blade of Escata true meaning it's to bring Chaos to the world once again, and no one will stop him. BOSS: Basil Galeos (14 LP) After that Basil will use his body and the blade power to form a new being. BOSS : Chaos (20 LP) Each character will talk a little bit. When you defeat this form, this will release a "mask" (hidden power) for 2 times. But when your release a new mask, his HP will be zero, so the LP will be drained from every powerful hit. These 3 forms aren't that powerful; just change constantly the front row to minimize the LP damage received. Chaos (26 or 16 LP) Chaos (12 LP) Now the final form will appear, he has some very nasty attacks like Overkill that inflicts 800~1000 of damage and he also full health, so it will take a while to begin to reduce his LP. The advice that I give you is to protect Laura and don't fight with 5 characters at the same time, because most of it's attacks get everyone. DO NOT TRY TO COMBO IN THIS FORM. I know that it's superhard, but YOU CAN WIN. Chaos (20 LP) After that Henri becomes the new king of Escata, but Laura bids Henri farewell, because she has something to do. Henri gets sad but he knows that their separation was inevitable. Laura comes back to Nivacolina and reopens the school of Pablo, and she will spend his life in teaching kids, just like his late husband. THE END D ) MYTHE Mythe is a regular guy, which likes girls and liquor and has a good job as the inventor of Longshank. A really good life, but somehow he is bored with it. But one day, when he goes to a party on the mansion of the wealthiest man is his town; his life gets a drastic change... 1 - TO THE FORTUNE TELLER: PART 1 In the Fugar's mansion, Mythe and his mentor are waiting to know what old relic Fugar bought this time. It seems that it is photography of a mysterious and beautiful girl, but she don't looks like a regular girl. Her skin and hair color are not what they used to see. The crowd is dazzled, and the Mythe's mentor says that he never seen a picture so vivid. Mythe became fascinated, almost hypnotized, with the girl's picture. He asks Fugar who sell it to him. He says that a carrier named Tiffon that sold it. Mythe says he must know where this picture came from, so he starts to look out for Tiffon. Ask information in the bar, and a girl will tell you that lives a great fortuneteller named Sapphire in Loch Vaan that can help him. Mythe doesn't believe this kind of things (after all he is a science man) but he doesn't have anything to lose and so he goes his journey to Loch Vaan. But to go there he must stop first in Wanda. 2 - TO THE FORTUNE TELLER - PART 2 Just a quick stop in Wanda, but he leaves to Loch Vaan. 3 - BOTTOM OF THE OLD WELL Getting there, he goes to the fortuneteller shop. There a girl receives him, Mythe asks about Tiffon's whereabouts, so the girl has a vision that mixes water and underground, and she says that she is behind a door in the dry well, in Loch Vaan. Mythe don't believe in the girl but he goes there anyway. In the dry well, there is no one there and he came back furious. There he will be received by Sapphire (the vision was made by Ruby, Sapphire sister) and say to Ruby don't do that again. There she has the same vision as her sister, but she interpretation is different, she says that Tiffon is in a town surrounded by water. She says that she will come to you to repair the mistakes that Ruby committed. Leave the town, and go to Gadeira. There ask information in the inn. You will find Tiffon there. She confirms that she was the one that sold the picture to Fugar, but she don't reveal where she gets it and runs. Sapphire says that she is hiding something. 4 - TIFFON'S SECRET This place has a really tough boss, so improve your characters before venturing in this quest. You will enter the haunted manor in the outskirts of the town, which Tiffon has been there already. Go to the northwest of the first floor, there Mythe will say that this place was ransacked. Leave and go to the second floor and go northwest again. He will say the same thing, go to the first floor again then go north. You will notice that the room has a stair that leads underground. Go there, and you will find Tiffon but an undead monster will face you. BOSS: Undead (6 LP) Mythe realizes that Tiffon stole things and she says that she stole the photo from a girl named Grace in Nivacolina. Tiffon goes with him with the promise that Mythe won't tell anyone about her secret. 5 - IN SEARCH OF GRACE The first stop to Nivacolina it's Wanda, but to there it's a short road to there. 6 - IN SEARCH OF GRACE - TO NIVACOLINA There you will find Grace, Mythe introduces himself to her and says that a man named Fugar appeared with a photo of a girl and Sapphire asks if she was the original owner of the photo. She says that the photo was a gift from the Baike Gold Lion, an old woman named Pharr. Pharr does regulars excavations in old ruins and lives in Iskandaria. Mythe, pretty obsessed by the photo legacy and thinking that the girl can be alive, he has no other option as to go to there and meet this Pharr lady. 7 - ROAD TO ISKANDARIA The first stop to Iskandaria its Escata, but to there it's a short road to there. 8 - ROAD TO ISKANDARIA: PART 2 Finally, he arrives in Iskandaria. There Pharr greets him, and she says that the photo was found in Undercity Pharos, the ruins that actually is one of the seven wonders. Mythe ask where is this undercity, and she says "below our feet", so he asks her if she can show him where she find the picture. Pharr, impressed by Mythe's will and realizing his true intentions, go to there with him. 9 - UNDERCITY PHAROS Pharr only remembers part of the way, so follow Pharr path and reach the second part of the Undercity. There, follow the undercity pharos guide in the Seven wonders section, but you don't have to enter the rooms with the monster-protected switches (because he doesn't know what to do with them) in the second floor. When you get to the second floor again, continue to the stairs to the first floor. There, enter the first room next to that stairs that you came. Pharr says that that was the place that she found the photo, but there is nothing left there to gather some clues from the girl. Mythe says that isn't possible that the girl from the picture can be alive until now and he leaves Pharos and the others with a clear disappointment in his eyes. He finally returns to Longshank. 10 - SALVAGE THE PHOTO Mythe can't think of anything or even concentrate on his work, a mix of lovesickness and disappointment. A customer (Laura) goes into the Mythe's shop to appraise an item, but he even isn't listening to her. After much struggle, Mythe tells her that the item isn't a weapon (it looks like an axe). Then someone screams that the Fugar Mansion is on fire, Mythe says that he deserves it, but Laura says that he can't laugh on other peoples misfortune. But then, Mythe starts to run to Fugar's mansion and take Laura's item with him. Laura chases him into the mansion. Mythe says that he cannot let the photo burn in the fire. The house is crumbling apart and burning debris is falling, even that Mythe went there without thinking twice. So go to the Fugar's room on the second floor (use the axe to break the door) and retrieve the picture. Laura says that the photo must mean a lot to him, since he risked his life to get it. After that, Laura say that she saw a girl just like the mysterious girl in the photo getting a boat to Vaftom. And with a speed of a lightning, Mythe and the others go to Vaftom. Go to the Iskandar Plaza to see the Regina Leone Festival. He sees someone with a silver hair, and he looks for her. As him searches the festival, Ruby (Sapphire sister) take him on to dancing. After some dancing, he decides to look again, but he won't fine her. But he is happy to know that she is actually a living person. Mythe cannot hide his happiness. 11 - TEMPLE OF ISKANDAR In the entrance of the Iskandar plaza, a girl (Marie) starts to scream that someone invaded the Iskandar mausoleum. She says that he girl has silver hair...Mythe runs inside, and Marie goes with him. Go to the Hall of Hades, and there you will find the girl. Mythe can't believe that he finally found her and starts to talk non stop about the picture and how he is in love with her, but the girl doesn't seems to understand what he is talking about. He calms down and he says that he works with relics to uncover the secrets of the past, but then the girl replies that he is a childish fool by not to realize that relics are to be left alone, and she says that she demands to see Iskandar with a serious face. Mythe is pretty confused: the girl that he sought and longed for such a long time isn't at very least interested in him or his story, and she even pity him. But even so he will help her, just to be at her side. They go to the inn, and the Silver-hair girl only says that she wants to talk to Iskandar; Mythe says that, because Iskandar was such an important hero, many people are named after Iskandar. Just in the inn, 2 persons replies that he is Iskandar, but the Silver girl keeps talking that she have to find Iskandar. Mythe is so confused, but he can't abandoned her, not now. He takes her back to Longshank. 12 - TO SADOVOS - GADEIRA'S HIGHROAD In his work, a girl named Melissa says that she has a relic, a gauntlet that brings bad luck to her. Mythe investigate the gauntlet and says that a relic that works just like the gauntlet is the magic tablet. Marie says that her grandfather works with magic tablets, but just one problem, he is in Sadovos. Mythe, thinking that the Silver Girl says to him on the Iskandar mausoleum and trying to put his head on his place, says that he will help Melissa and so, everyone will go to Sadovos. The first stop it's in Solophero. 13 - TO SADOVOS - VALE OF SWORDS You will cross the vale of the sword to reach Serin. 14 - TO SADOVOS - JADE FOREST Cross the Jade forest to Sadovos. In there, go to the magic emporium, there the grandfather of Marie will see the gauntlet of Michelle, but he finds too risky to remove the gauntlet, because that can bring Michelle death. Mythe removes the gauntlet, and Michelle is very happy. On the outside, Silver Girl says that her mother told her that Iskandar is in Iskandar Mausoleum. 15 - TO ISKANDAR SHRINE...AGAIN Go to the Hall of Hades again, there you will find a boss that you will have to defeat. BOSS: Giants (12 LP) After that, enter the locked room, there you will find a switch, press it and then you will unlock the Iskandar Mausoleum. There is only an empty coffin there, but Silver Girl keeps calling for Iskandar. When Mythe is about to leave, Iskandar appears. Mythe don't believe - he actually appeared from nowhere. She says that mother has sent her to find him. Iskandar says that she is exactly like Rivelvalla and asks what is her name, and she says Faedaljen. He says that it's her task to destroy the Knights of the Round Table, the dark rulers of this world. She says that Iskandar's word is her mother word. Mythe doesn't understand anything, and asks Iskandar to tell him the full story. He says that Silver Girl is an Arcanian, people created by the gods. The seven wonders are the relics of her ancestors. But the power of the wonders almost destroyed the world, and the gods prevented that by vanishing them. He says that they were born on the gods palace, so they are more like monsters and not humans. He continues that Leith Torles, a thousand years ago, first introduced him to an Arcanian. That Arcanian was Faedaljen mother, Rivelvalla. He became so impressed with her beauty, that he takes many pictures of her. He says that all Arcanians were much alike each other, and they have a human appearance. Mythe still don't understand a thing that Iskandar are trying to tell him but he says that Mythe must lead and protect Faedaljen on his mission. She says that they must go to Tal´fa Palacaleo (that it's Undercity Pharos). 16 - FOR THE LOVE OF THE GIRL Just like before, this is the final quest so if you forget to do something, do it before you enter here. Improve your weapons to the limit that you will need them (and, of course, your skills as a player and some luck). Mythe says that he won't question anything of her past or her mission, his only wish is to be with her. Faedaljen thanks him. Follow the route again to the Undercity Pharos, but this time you have to complete all the requirements to finish the quest, until you reach the Round table chambers. They round table will receive you, but they only wish it's to suck your life out. The silver girl says that she will exterminate the members of the round table, but they say that the girl is only a puppet to Iskandar. The final battle has begun. BOSS: 8 (one at the time) knight of the round table (6 LP) Phantom (8 LP) OBS - You will face the 6 knights with only 3 characters at once. This is one of the most difficult battles ever; just use everything that you got. Don't let Phantom take your entire LP, save at least half MAX LP for each character. When you finally think that it's over, Phantom will refuse to die, so he will summon the most powerful monster ever known: Chaos. BOSS : Chaos (20 LP) Each character will talk a little bit. When you defeat this form, this will release a "mask" (hidden power) for 2 times. But when your release a new mask, his HP will be zero, so the LP will be drained from every powerful hit. These 3 forms aren't that powerful; just change constantly the front row to minimize the LP damage received. Chaos (26 or 16 LP) Chaos (12 LP) Now the final form will appear, he has some very nasty attacks like Overkill that inflicts 800~1000 of damage and he also has full health, so it will take a while to begin to reduce his LP. The advice that I give you is to protect Mythe and don't fight with 5 characters at the same time, because most of it's attacks get everyone. DO NOT TRY TO COMBO IN THIS FORM. I know that it's superhard, but YOU CAN WIN. Chaos (20 LP) The final battle is over, the Knights of the Round Table are defeated, but Faedaljen says that she and Mythe can't stay together. Mythe realizes that as well, and she disappears. Mythe became depressed once again, bored with the work at Longshank. But one day, he realizes, as he did before, that he must follow his heart and dreams to achieve true happiness. So he began to build a special machine, a machine created without the knowledge of the relics left for the Arcanians, a flying machine. And so he left again to find the girl of his dreams, the beautiful and mysterious Faedaljen. THE END E ) ARMIC The Chapa village, located in the west section of the world, suffers from time to time from drought that almost causes the Chapa's to starve. Many years ago, Iskandar saved the town by making a rainmaking ritual. He also taught the Chapa's how to make this ritual when the need arises. Now, when drought endanger the village once again, the elder chief summons 4 chapas to retrieve the items necessary to perform the ritual. Armic it's one of summoned chapa, even if he isn't the brightest of the bunch, he has a good spirit and he will try to help his village. 1 - OFF TO GATHER SOME HERBS Armic begins with a huge list of material to get and also a stone tablet with additional item to get. Armic it's somewhat clueless to what to do, since he doesn't know anyone that can translate the stone tablet. Go to the inn and ask for information and Norff, a wizard apprentice, says that he will help if Armic come to the Healer Hills to gather some herbs. Collect 7 herbs in the Healer Hills and this quest will end. Norff takes Armic to Loch Vaan, to meet his master. In the Crimson spellshop, Yun (Norff's master) will says that the stone table that Iskandar left has indications of 4 special items and the place to get the items, but personally he thinks that 5 items in total. Leave the spell shop and check the list (it's the O button) that the village chief gave to you. The list consists in 20 materials: 10 common materials (cotton, snake skin, cedar, tortoise shell, copper, carnelian, topaz, opal, ravenite and lazuli) that you need 6 of them, and 10 rare materials (glossed silk, hydra skin, ash, dragon scale, meteorite, obsidian, diamond, meteoritic iron, faerie silver and Damascus) that you need only one of them. When you have the quantity needed, the color of the list will be white. When you exceed the necessary items, the color of the list will turn to green. Go to the inn and ask some information. There will be a carrier named Norge that will help you; he say that he knows where is a bow made of Ash. You need Ash so go with him. Come back to magic shop and Yun will ask what special item that you want to translate first. You can choose anyone that you like, but choose METAL to begin with (this it's the easiest quest). Yun will say that he needs some time to translate. Now you have to find 10 items of the list. You can buy the items in the inn's shop or trade them with the other chapas. You can even unequip items that you have to add to the final score and also you can exceed the needed items. The rules to trade with the chapa are: They must have more than he needs (green) and you can trade with any item that you have, but the other chapa must be needed also. So you can't give a chapa an item that he doesn't need. When you gather the 10 items, Yun translate the first special item, the Venus Mirror in Vaftom and he asks what item that you want to translate next. Choose WOOD and go to the adventure. Now that, you opened Vaftom in your world map you can go to the Regina Leone Festival, go to the Iskandar Plaza in Vaftom and enjoy the CG. Armic is enjoying the Festival, and go to a quick stop into Ruby's fortune telling tent, but when the fireworks begin, he goes elsewhere. But since he is quite small, he cannot see everything. The same situation happens with Judy. As they try to jump to see anything, Judy created a frog with magic and jumps over the crowd. Armic sees the Memorial Fires also, and he leaves. 2 - MINES ADVENTURE An outland knight named Edel will help you to exterminate the monsters in the mines. This adventure is the same as the Vaftom "Danger in the mines" so look there for guidance. After defeating the boss, you will find the Venus mirror. Now you must find another 10 items (total: 20 items) to Yun translate the next special item, the Jupiter Anvil, that it's on the Jade Forest. Choose WATER as the next destination. 3 - JADE-COLORED ADVENTURE An old lady called Pharr is looking for the Lilleans tribe and she will help you to find the special item. The Jupiter anvil is on the middle of the Jade Forest maze. When you are in the Jade Forest maze, go south and you will eventually find the Jupiter anvil. But you will have to fight a boss there. BOSS : Jumbo Moch (7 LP) Now you have 2 special items, Armic says that he wants to go home, but he knows that he has still work to do. Go to Zomar, and ask for information there, you will find Vearst, a huge guy that it's afraid of everything. He will teach the location of another rare item: the obsidian boots. Go with him. Now you must complete the minimum quantity of 12 items, all the common ones and 2 rare ones for Yun decode the next special item (it doesn't matter the total numbers of the items). He says that water was a difficult one to translate, and he thinks that the water isn't a item after all, so he will leave that for last, but he find out the whereabouts of another special item: the Ares flag in the Kimbali magma cave. Ask EARTH as the next item to be translated. 4 - VOLCANO ADVENTURE There you will find a lady named Rebecca looking for the Leith Torle's magic tablet. She will join you in your quest. This adventure it's the same as the Kimbali's "Dragon of fiery mountains", so go there for directions. After defeating this hard boss, you will find the Ares flag. OK, only one more items to go. Now go to the Kimbali and ask information there. You will find Henri, a prince that lost his parents. He says that the regal lion's hideout has another rare item: the dragon scale. Go there, if you haven't gone there before. Now to Yun translate the next place, you have to complete ALL items. Buy, trade, sell, create...just give your best to complete all items. This will take a while but eventually you will have all items. Yun will say that the behemoth chest is in the flying island, a seven wonders site. You have come this far, so there is no reason to turn back. 5 - TO THE FLYING ISLAND Now it's the final quest, as you are wondering, here comes my advice to clear ALL quests before venturing here. Also, there is a particular thing that vital to clear Armic's quest, so you must pay attention. VERY IMPORTANT: Before entering the flying island, MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE ANYONE WITH A FIRE FAMILIAR SKILL, AND EQUIPMENTS WITH THE OTHER ELEMENTS (WOOD ARTS, EARTH ARTS AND METAL ARTS). Pass the flying island just like you use to do. Before entering the elevator cage MAKE SURE that Norff is with WOOD and EARTH ARTS equipment and Rebecca are with the METAL ARTS equipment. On the underground level, Armic find the last item. Now Yun appears and says to give the items to him. He talks about the chapa is the final element to the element-making art. It seems that Iskandar rainmaking ritual can do way more than just rain, it can create any element that he want to, and the water in the stone tablet is mention the chapa tribe itself, not an item. Yun gets mad with the possibility to gain this power and attack Armic's team. BOSS: Yun Crimsonrain (14 LP) At first glance, Yun is invincible. He has a magical barrier that prevents all kinds of damage, so you have to break this barrier before beginning to inflicting any damage. So you have to follow closely this method, on the first turn use any magic of the FIRE elemental, a piece of Yun's barrier will break. Then use a magic of the METAL elemental on the second turn, WOOD on the third turn and EARTH on the fourth turn. That way, Yun will be without his magical barrier and you will able to inflict damage on him. Try to not combo Yun when he is with the barrier. Yun doesn't accept defeat by the hands of the brainless chapas, though. He uses his last power to invoke the mightiest creature of the universe: Chaos. BOSS : Chaos (20 LP) Each character will talk a little bit. When you defeat this form, this will release a "mask" (hidden power) for 2 times. But when your release a new mask, his HP will be zero, so the LP will be drained from every powerful hit. These 3 forms aren't that powerful; just change constantly the front row to minimize the LP damage received. Chaos (26 or 16 LP) Chaos (12 LP) Now the final form will appear, he has some very nasty attacks like Overkill that inflicts 800~1000 of damage and he also has full health, so it will take a while to begin to reduce his LP. The advice that I give you is to protect Mythe and don't fight with 5 characters at the same time, because most of it's attacks get everyone. DO NOT TRY TO COMBO IN THIS FORM. I know that it's superhard, but YOU CAN WIN. Chaos (20 LP) Yun gets out of the domination of Chaos; he is very sorry for what he done with Armic and says that he only wish is to be as powerful as Leith Torles. Armic forgives him and go back to his village. There he is greet by his wife Chiera (???) and his 2 kids: Orale and Venikkis (??????). The elder chief make the rainmaking ritual and everything is at peace in chapa village once again. THE END F ) JUDY Judy is an ordinary 13 years old girl, which came from a family of magicians. She is also a magician herself, but only a beginner in that. His family is composed by Rebecca, a full-fledged witch that is her mother; his father, Thomas, that don't have any magic power and because of that has it's share of disagreements with Josef, Rebecca's father, that is a powerful magician. Judy has also 2 brothers: one is Roy, an incredible fat kid, and his older sister Marie, beautiful and chased by every man in the village. His family runs a magical store in Sadovos, and when Marie asks Judy to take care of the store for a while, the troubles begins. 1 - WHERE IS MY FAMILY? An old man, Clyde, come to see Josef. He enters, and in this time Rebecca also enters. When Rebecca hears that Clyde is here, she senses danger and runs to help his father, but it was too late. Clyde trapped Josef in the mirror and demands to know where is Leith Torles magic tablet. Josef warns Clyde as he uses magic inside the store, his own magic countermeasure will work. Judy is transported to the outside of the store. When she returns, his grandpa tells that the magic works sending the people with magic powers far away. The most powerful the person, the farthest that he will be thrown away. That why Judy were the first person to arrive. Josef tell Judy to find the others members of the family with the help of the magic circle. On the entrance of the Jade forest, Judy finds Kurt, an adventurer that will help her get through the forest. But in there they finds carriers that threatens them of crossing the Jade forest. On the outside of the forest, they find a powerful beast. BOSS: Dragons (4 LP) The dragon transforms in a bat. Judy thinks that is Clyde's familiar, not the "warning of the carriers". They reach the town of Serin. 2 - SAVE URSULA In the inn, they find Thomas. Thomas was being taken care by a woman named Theresa. She was the owner of the town inn, until his husband died. Now the son of the wealthiest man in town wants to marry Ursula, Theresa's daughter. Theresa says that Armand is a womanizer and that actually doesn't like Ursula. On the outside, there are rumors that Armand kidnapped Ursula, and they must be hiding in Armand´s hideout in the Monster lair. Thomas decides to go and save Ursula and Judy go with them. You can finish this adventure quite easily going southeast of the start point, but is advised to go to the northeast and grab some chests and fight some monsters. When you find Armand, he asks a friend to take care of Judy, and then he summons a beast that goes out of control. Judy must fight him. BOSS: Aquans (3 LP) They manage to get Ursula back but it seems that she was somewhat enjoying it. Armand's father tells him to go with Judy and the others to grow as a real man. The crystal says that that one of the family member is further northwest. To the town of Solophero, but before the treacherous Vale of Swords. Meanwhile, Clyde is in Torle. He says as he was the one with the stronger magic power, he was thrown away farther. He says to his familiar to stop Judy and any means, and he will look for Rebecca, he says that she is the key to it... 3 - FOLLOW THE CRYSTAL HOOP They go into the Valley of swords, but in middle of crossing a bridge, monsters attack your group. Thomas decides that he will stay behind to fight the monsters and manages to get the others to cross safely. But as soon that Judy cross the bridge, the bridge crumbles apart, separating Thomas from his daughter. Now Judy isn't with his father but she keeps going forward because she knows that he is alright. On the end of the Valley, she finds another monster. BOSS: Pinhut titus (7 LP) 4 - BANDITS AMBUSH They gate to Solophero, but is already night. A person in the village says that bandits are attacking. You are surrounded by dozens of bandits. Now you must take care of the bandits, go fighting one by one (it might take a couple of turns), but eventually they will flee. When the bandits retreat, Judy sees a familiar figure. She goes after him. OBS: The trick to this part is to fight the bandits relentlessly without wasting too many turns, resting or going to the center of the dungeon. 5 - THAT FAMILIAR BIG BACK Judy and the other go to the coliseum ruins. There they find that Roy has fallen on a middle of a gang of bandits. When the get to fight the leader of the bandits, a person commanded by Clyde arrives and tells to kill them. As no one tries to do that, he goes to the attack himself. BOSS: Darkmage (8 LP) He mentions that Clyde is looking for the forbidden spell, and drops a mysterious magic tablet. Judy keeps him. Now she says that the next destination is even further northeast. Roy says that if the catch a boat on the city of Gadeira they will arrive faster in his destination. Everyone agrees to go there. 6 - THE MARCH TO THE SEA They leave to Gadeira, where they suppose to get a boat to Longshank. When they reach Gadeira, the people there are exited with the festival of Regina Leone in Vaftom. They get on the ship. 7 - SHIPS AHOY On the ship, they are warned that the ship in under attack by monsters. There they find Nuage, a carrier that wants to be Judy's bodyguard. On the ship deck, they find a huge crab. The monster attacks them. BOSS: Titan Crab (6 LP) After the fight, Judy realizes that the crab was actually Clyde's familiar. She says to stop chasing them. When they realize the ship lost it's original course and they see Avalon, an Isle that few actually see. Nuage explain that this is the isle of Elve, with Vaftom as the major town. Where Lord Dixon made the first Iskandar Mausoleum. Since they get so far, Judy manages to get on the Regina Leone festival. There she meets with a Chapa (Armic) and they enjoy the party. Later on the memorial fire ritual, Judy notice that everyone became focused in pay his final respects to the death ones. Now that the festival is over, it's time to look out for his family once again. 8 - TO LONGSHANK They get a boat to Longshank. Clyde is now to Iskandaria. He knows Judy whereabouts but he still doesn't found Rebecca. When Judy arrives in Longshank, she hopes that she can find her family soon. When they get to the inn, they became surprised to find that Marie is in the inn. They became very surprised that she is so well there, but Judy knows that is not entirely the truth. Judy shows the magic tablet that she finds with the blackmage. Marie says that she find a similar piece in a place nearby. They go there to find the remaining pieces and try to know what is the forbidden spell that the black mage and Clyde are looking for. 9 - THE CREEPY MAGIC TABLET Here Judy goes to the Garden of death to find the remaining pieces. Try to find as many as you can in the turns limit. When you find enough piece (6 or so) Judy says that is useless to remain looking for the magic tablet and she have to find his mother as soon as she can. The crystal says that even further northeast. They leave Longshank and go to Zomar. 10 - LOOKING FOR MOM: PART 1 Judy travels to Zomar to find his mother. Meanwhile, Clyde is in Escata, and says that Rebecca is there; he says that he will get her and the forbidden spell by any means possible. 11 - LOOKING FOR MOM: PART 2 Judy travels to Wanda to find his mom. 12 - LOOKING FOR MOM: PART 3 Judy travels to Escata to find his mom. When she arrives there, she sees the destruction of Escata and hears rumors that a powerful witch is fighting the remaining monsters of the siege of Escata at the Amulet tower. Judy knows that is Rebecca and that she must help her as soon as possible. 13 - I'M COMING FOR YOU, MOM Judy climbs up the Amulet tower and on the fifth floor, she saw Rebecca injured, fighting an elder dragon all by herself. Judy jumps to the battle without thinking. BOSS: Elder dragon (12 LP) Once again, the monster was Clyde's familiar. They tell Rebecca the entire story so far, and Rebecca says that they must now help his grandfather. They return to Sadovos to find his gramps. Clyde says that he underestimate Judy's family. He will use his "last resort", because his is running out of time. They get to Sadovos, but unfortunately Clyde's familiar was in front of them. He managed to smash the mirror that your grandfather was trapped into; when they get there Thomas says that Clyde entered the mirror before his familiar smashed the glass. He says that the only way to save his grandfather was to get into the deities table, a place that was connected with the mirror dimension. Everyone go to there, to find Josef and face Clyde for the last time. 14 - SAVE GRANDPA! Just like before, this is the final quest so if you forget to do something, do it before you enter here. Improve your weapons to the limit that you will need them (and, of course, your skills as a player and some luck). When you get into the Deities table, Judy notices a piece of paper. There is written a magical spell with the location of his grandpa. Judy says that are 4 pieces missing. On each floor (Mirror of sins, mirror of dreams, mirror of time and the final section) lies a piece of paper with a part of the spell. When you see a reflection of the mirror that isn't a monster, it is the paper. When you find all 4 pieces, you will find Josef. Judy is so happy to find his grandpa, but they find Clyde also, but he is much younger. He says that he sold his body to the vampires, and he wants to know the truth of the forbidden spell. Since Josef don't tell him, he faces you. BOSS: Clyde Blackstorm (15 LP) Defeated, he summons a powerful monster: CHAOS BOSS : Chaos (20 LP) Each character will talk a little bit. When you defeat this form, this will release a "mask" (hidden power) for 2 times. But when your release a new mask, his HP will be zero, so the LP will be drained from every powerful hit. These 3 forms aren't that powerful; just change constantly the front row to minimize the LP damage received. Chaos (26 or 16 LP) Chaos (12 LP) Now the final form will appear, he has some very nasty attacks like Overkill that inflicts 800~1000 of damage and he also has full health, so it will take a while to begin to reduce his LP. The advice that I give you is to protect Judy and don't fight with 5 characters at the same time, because most of it's attacks get everyone. DO NOT TRY TO COMBO IN THIS FORM. I know that it's superhard, but YOU CAN WIN. Chaos (20 LP) Now that Clyde is defeated, Clyde ask is there is really a magical tablet with the forbidden spell. Josef says that every magical tablet has the power to draw the forbidden spell. He says that even Leith Torles knew that but he also knew that magicians would use spells for the good of the people. Clyde is disappointed but he says that now he has the eternity to think about the mistakes that he is done. He leaves to the world of darkness. On Sadovos, everything is back to normal with Judy's family. The only thing that really changed is the way Josef treats Thomas. Judy says that she grow up (a little bit) in this quest. Congratulations, you managed to save your family all by yourself. THE END G ) KURT Kurt is a strong-minded guy that is son of the Lord Burgundy, leader of the knighthood. He works as an outland knight and came in contact with a mysterious relic, a cursed gauntlet. Back in his travels around the world, he is thrown in a strange place and has to fight with a mysterious monster. He thinks that it's the curse of the gauntlet. BOSS: Scorpion (2 LP) After that, he goes to Gadeira, to his home to meet with his parents after 3 years out in the frontiers. There he talks with Lord Maximillian Burgundy, his father. His father wants that he quits from the outland knights and take over his place as a temple knight. Kurt says that he won't accept the offer and that he is no longer even a knight. He talks about his travels at the frontier and that his wish is to go there and help those people. Maximillian says that he is a fool to think so. He says that if Kurt is no longer a knight, that he is no longer his son as well. Kurt leaves the house. On the outside, Kurt meets with his brother Leon. Leon says that he turned out to be a Temple knight and he is training in Vaftom. Kurt explain the situation, and Leon wishes good luck to him. In the inn, he hears rumors about the fee that the Guardian knights are taking from the carriers. 1 - THE DEPRESSED CARRIER In the outskirts of the town, he finds a carrier named Ventus. Ventus is being forced to pay a fee to cross the way to Solophero. As he refuses to do it so, he has to go to the other way for the mountains. Kurt says that he will help him, but as he goes to the end of the mountain path, he has to face yet another monster in the "another dimension". BOSS: Zorus (3 LP) Even so, they go to Solophero. Kurt notice that Ventus didn't realized that he have fought with a creature. Also, he isn't even hurt from its battle. It seems that when he is fighting in the "another dimension", time actually stops. (NOTE: The next encounter with the monsters in the "another dimension" is based on game time, like, it takes 20 minutes on real game time to the "another world" calls for you again. The game will not end if you lose to a monster in the "another world" but there is some events in Kurt's quest that requires to defeat a specific monster in this condition) 2 - VALE OF SWORDS They go to Serin. In the middle of the road, Kurt has to face even another monsters. BOSS: Greedy (4 LP) They managed to get to Serin. 3 - BIG OL' RASCALS On Serin, they hear that the Temple knights will attack an anti- knighthood group based on the monster cave. A girl begs to Kurt to help the group. On the entrance, Kurt talks with an arrogant Temple knight. He say that he let loose monsters in the cave, because the knighthood won't stain his hands. Kurt thinks that the knighthood became a bunch of cowards. Just when he is getting ready to help, he is thrown in the other dimension. BOSS: Chaos Crab (4 LP) You can finish this adventure quite easily going southeast of the start point to the Armand's Hideout, but is advised to go to the northeast and grab some chests and fight some monsters. When you get to the Armand's hideout, Armand says that the monsters killed all his friends. Armand agrees to go with Kurt's party. 4 - JADE FOREST Next step is to go to Sadovos, but there is still the Jade forest to cross. In the entrance of the forest a lilllean named Plyaphillum are waiting for Kurt, but more precisely, he can feel the evil of the Gauntlet getting near. He says that he wants to find the answer together with Kurt. Then Kurt felt again the evil of the gauntlet and are called to the "another dimension". BOSS: Blue Windsor (5 LP) Then, Kurt notice that the foes of the gauntlet are getting stronger, as the gauntlet itself. (NOTE: you can see in the skill panel that Kurt's gauntlet are changing levels when you defeat the gauntlet monsters). Kurt became more puzzled with the true purpose of the gauntlet. When they get into Sadovos, they went to the magic emporium. There, they find a specialist in magic tablets named Josef. He will say that the gauntlet is a mixture of light and darkness, as any magic tablet. He says that he will join you. As Kurt travels in search of clues, he have to face another foe. BOSS: Mad Buc (6 LP) After this fight, Platypyllium notice that you were in another world. Kurt now knows that he was really transported for another world. But why? In Gadeira, Leon says that the gauntlet that his brother are equipped gives him outstanding power. He wants the gauntlet for itself. Now there is several others towns to go in the world map, so Kurt goes to Longshank. There, he listen to rumors that says that the wealthiest men in town brought a mercenary squad together to rid of the monsters in the surrounding area. The leader of the squad is Mordeus. 5 - MONSTER HUNTER Kurt came to help Mordeus to exterminate the monsters. On the entrance, the Temple knights came in and take over the expedition by order of Jeanne Maure, but Mordeus says that he will complete the mission anyway. They went to separate way with the temple knights, but suddently, Kurt has to go to the "another dimension". BOSS: Agares (12 LP) Kurt says that they are using Jeanne Maure to take over the knighthood. But what they are planning? Go to Loch Vaan, and enter the crimson spellshop. The owner say that a great wizard like Leith Torles would help to unravel the mystery of the ancient relics. He say to take his pupil on his quest. And so, Norff join your group Back on Vaftom, Jeanne Maure says to Leon that they must be more involved with the world outside; Leon asks if she know Kurt. She says that Kurt was a strong knight. 6 - WAITING FOR THE SHRINE Kurt goes to Kimbali to visit an old friend and also an outland knight just like he was named Edel. Edel says that he is getting better (he was injured sometime ago), but the outland knights are dying. He says that the Temple knights are taking over the protection of the town, because they are building a temple in Kimbali as well. He will escort Kurt to the temple. On the outside, a villager says that Edel defended the town countless times, but they hear a temple knight saying that the outland knights are useless now and he also insults Kurt and Edel. On the house, Edel says that he is feeling that the town will be attacked because the temple knight only worries with the temple itself, and they leaves the town without proper protection. Kurt say that he won't let this happen. Now Edel explain how they will get rid of the monsters. Kurt must fight every monster in the block until he says that isn't more monsters left in there, and go to the next block. After every block is guarded, they will go to the main gate. And so, Kurt, Edel and the others manages to protect Kimbali from the monster invasion. On Vaftom, Leon is talking with his father. Maximillian asks about Jeanne, Leon says that she is solving a couple of things on Kimbali. Maximillian says that Kurt is the one to blame. Leon thinks to himself that he is the one that is really dangerous... Now Kurt has to face the fears inside the Gauntlet to go forward. He has to defeat the next boss. BOSS: Abaddon (12 LP) When you defeat this monster, a voice in his head says that the answer to his questions is in the Starship anchor. When Jeanne came back from his expedition, she says that is her destiny to conquer the Seven Wonders, because that is the true Iskandar spirit. Leon thinks that "here she goes again with this Iskandar crap...", but he politely says that the knighthood must return for it's basics. Jeanne became surprised to know that Leon feels the same way about the temple knights. Leon says that it's time that the younger templairs take over. 8 - LORD BURGUNDY ASSASINATION Kurt goes to Vaftom to the Regina Leone festival, there he sees Ventus trying to make a deliver but he stumbles in an Anubito and he gets angry.

BOSS: Anubito (7 LP) Next, he visit Iskandar Shrine. But a messenger named Hiro delivers a message. The message says that Lord Burgundy will be killed in the middle of the festival, when he gets on Dixon's mausoleum. Hiro says that he don't know who gives him this message. Kurt grabs Hiro and go inside the shrine. But he isn't expecting that he must face his last challenge in the Gauntlet's world. BOSS: Domliat (9 LP) In the Heaven's corridor, Kurt notice that the guardians aren't there, and that is a bad sign. They goes as far as the Dixon's mausoleum. Then, he sees Lord Burgundy surrounded by assassins, but he manages to save him. Maximillian thanks Kurt and he must fight the assassins. BOSS: 3 Assassins (3 LP) On the end, Kurt says that meanwhile the villagers of Vaftom are crying for their dead loved ones, he was killing the assassins of his father. 9 - JEANNE'S CHALLENGE Just like before, this is the final quest so if you forget to do something, do it before you enter here. Improve your weapons to the limit that you will need them (and, of course, your skills as a player and some luck). Leon says that he find proofs that the Starship anchor holds the power of the gods. Jeanne, full of pride, says that is the true meaning of the Iskandar ideals and goes for there. Kurt also goes to there, and on the way to the final room, he finds Jeanne, beaten up and totally lost. Kurt says that even the pride and joy of the knighthood lost his way. He goes forward until he finds Leon. Leon says that they surely are late. Kurt asks why send Jeanne Maure to make this fiasco, and he answers that she want to do it on her own. Leon also says that it's time to he take over the knighthood, to have a power to match the round table. Kurt says that if he was the one that ordered his father assassins, but Leon says that he was the one that send the message. Kurt replies that if he knew, then why you didn't help his father. He says that he wants to take over the knighthood, then the world. Kurt says that the temples twisted his head, and it's time to for the big brother save his little brother. BOSS: Leon Burgundy (20 LP) When he is defeated, Leon says that he is being taken over. BOSS : Chaos (20 LP) Each character will talk a little bit. When you defeat this form, this will release a "mask" (hidden power) for 2 times. But when your release a new mask, his HP will be zero, so the LP will be drained from every powerful hit. These 3 forms aren't that powerful; just change constantly the front row to minimize the LP damage received. Chaos (26 or 16 LP) Chaos (12 LP) Now the final form will appear, he has some very nasty attacks like Overkill that inflicts 800~1000 of damage and he also has full health, so it will take a while to begin to reduce his LP. The advice that I give you is to protect Kurt and don't fight with 5 characters at the same time, because most of it's attacks get everyone. DO NOT TRY TO COMBO IN THIS FORM. I know that it's superhard, but YOU CAN WIN. Chaos (20 LP) After defeating Chaos, Kurt, Jeanne and Leon are travelling the world to find some relics. They climb a huge mountain and start searching a cave. Kurt says to be careful with suspicious-looking things, but as he puts an exquisite helmet on his head, his starts to scream and it seems that the helmet is cursed as well. Probably he has to stick with the helmet for a while. Now, this isn't funny, Kurt...^_^ TO BE CONTINUED? YAY, YOU BEAT ALL CHARACTERS, CONGRATULATIONS!!! NOW ENJOY THE CREDITS AND THE BEAUTIFUL SONG "AMAKAKERU TSUBASA" 6 - - THE SEVEN WONDERS Here you will find the walkthrough for the Seven Wonders, one of the most difficult series of dungeons in this game. There are 2 possible ways to enter the Seven Wonders, the first one is to go on an adventure to explore the ruins of the Seven Wonders. And the other one is that a character story related to the seven wonders. A ) UNDERCITY PHAROS Two main buildings composes the Undercity Pharos dungeon, one is accessible from the Iskandaria map, and other is a massive 3-floor building only available if you select the Undercity adventure. The first building haven't anything of interest, so go southeast until you find a giant door, enter the door for the second building. In this second building you will notice 2 things: there is a barrier preventing access in sections of the floor and the fact that there is a elevator that can take you to the second and first floor, but isn't working right now. You will begin in the third floor. The first thing as you enter the giant door is go west until you find a descending stairs, don't worry if you get stuck in a barrier, just isn't necessary to cross it now...just find the stairs. In the second floor, enter a circular room and press the switch, but it will activate the alarm and 2 monsters will attack you. BOSS: 2 Insects (1 LP) After defeating them, make sure that you press the switch again, and find another descending stairs to the north. In this first floor, go north then east then south, until you find another ascending stairs. If you see a switch on your way, DON'T press it yet. Go up in the stairs. Also check the circular room on the second floor to activate another switch; once again the monsters will come after you. BOSS: 2 Insects (1 LP) Now, you will see a huge thing going up. It's the elevator. Now that you get the elevator working again, you need only to power them. Now go back to the first floor. There is 2 power switches, one located in the north of the floor, other located west. Activate both of them; it will give a message like "Alpha section complete". If you find a switch called "barrier" before you activate both power switches, don't press it now, do it after both power switches are turned on. After turning on the power and the barrier switch, go back to the third floor, backtracking from the way that you came earlier. Now on the third floor, the areas locked with the barrier will be opened. Also in this floor, there are 2 power switches. One on the south of the floor and other in the southeast of the floor, once again don't worry about the barrier switch. After pressing both power switches, a message will say that "all power restored" will appear; now find the elevator (it's in the middle of the floor), and press the middle switch (second floor). In this floor, there are 2 different rooms. One is the Round Table chamber, which is for the Ventus and Mythe storyline and the power generator room, for the other characters. Defeat the bosses and this quest is over. Congratulations, you cleared the hardest seven wonders adventure. B ) STARSHIP ANCHOR The starship anchor begins in a forest, enter the starship and push the stone door to go inside. This door leads to a room called the chamber of the planets. There is a monster inside it, go there and defeat him. After that activate the switch, and the roof will shine, revealing a constellation. Go northeast, and enter the anchor. There is a line, just like the roof of the chamber of the planets. Cross the room over the line, and the end a symbol showing the end of this section will appear. You will reach in the other section of the Starship. Go to the south side of this section, and then look out for another chamber of the planets with a monster as well. A picture in the roof also will appear. Enter the constellation room again; the picture will be the shape of a "W". Go first in the left and right edge and then, go to the north. So face the Starship anchor guardian to end another seven wonders adventure. C ) DEITIES TABLE There is a short way in the forest until you get inside the table. Inside the deities table, you objective is step in all mirror of sins, when you complete the mirror of sins the magic circle that will transport you for the other section of the deities table will appear.

In the mirror of time you will face the guardian of the Deities table. Sometimes in the deities table, some broken shards of the mirror will come after you, use the reel to repel them, if unsuccessful, some monsters will attack you. D ) AVALON - FLYING ISLAND The flying island dungeon isn't that complicated. The objective here is push 3 handles located in different areas of the island to access the elevator. The island have 5 different sections: The port, the southwest gate, the southeast gate, the northwest gate and the northeast gate. There is 3 towers in the island, and on each tower there is the handles. The towers are located in the southwest, southeast and northeast gates. And the elevator is located in the northwest gate. Go to the east from the port until you see all 3 towers. Then go to the southwest gate, and go forward. There are some places only accessible via obstacle crossing and swimming skills, but there are only treasures in this secret ways, but not the handles. In the way, there is a handle with an Ivy to push, push it and go to the southeast gate. Find the handle in the southeast and the northeast gates as well. Then the elevator will arrive. The elevator cage is in the northwest gate, near the entrance. Enter the elevator and you will find the guardian of the flying island. E ) NAKLE LINES The Nakle lines is a huge dungeon, but if you know what to do in each place, this will be an easy quest. You will start in the middle of a room and there are 5 ways to get inside to the lines. In each line the objective is, like the deities table, open the entire place to form a picture, and on each line has a particular riddle to solve. When you form a picture, you will get an orb. Swirl line (southeast) - Just step in all places, the catch of the swirl line its to go to the desired place you will have to put the analog directional in the opposite way that you want to go. After the swirl line is complete, come back to the center of the swirl. Sword line (southwest) - The sword line has 2 invisible walls, and 2 switches. Right on the beginning, press one of the switches and it will unlock the opposite invisible wall, so go there, complete the map, press the switch on the end of the road, return from where you came, activate the other switch and go to the other side, activate the switch again and come back to the beginning of the room, because when you press both switches, the door will unlock and you can complete the sword line. Giant line (north) - The giant line it's the most difficult thing to figure out. Open normally all the places, but there is a room that when you step it will appear a ?. In this place, also has a circular empty room, so you have to point the analog directional to the room (south), you will cross the invisible wall and enter this room as well.

There will be a magical circle. Enter and it will leave you in the start point. When you put all 5 orbs, a middle room will appear. Be careful, the most powerful guardian of the seven wonders will appear. F ) TWO MOONS TEMPLE This is the most easily to cross Seven wonder, it's just a straightforward dungeon without any serious difficulty. You will begin in the first floor and you will have to find the way to the uppermost level. There is some magic fields scattered around transporting you, but it confuses more than help. So stick to normal walking (it's a short dungeon anyway). In the uppermost level you will find 2 elder dragons, in opposite sides of the floor, but fighting with them it's completely optional, but the training and the fact that each one guards a Lv. 99 chest can change your mind. In the northeast of the uppermost level you will find a special room: if you're with Ventus, it will appear 2 magic circles, pick the one from the right to challenge Kalandorn, the others characters will fight the guardians of the 2 moons temple, after defeating the guardians, you will have to back on the entrance to complete this quest. G ) HANGED GARDEN The Hanged Garden, just like the Two Moons temple, it's a straightforward dungeon. But the only difference is that the Hanged Garden is a very huge dungeon. You start at Hortus Primus at spring, as you will go to the dungeon you will notice that sometimes vines appears, then you will have to use the reel to dodge the vines. If you fail, you will take a small damage and the statues that are the guardians of the hanged garden will change the season of the year. As you get on the middle of each Hortus, there is a place called the "high place": you can only pass this point if you are in a specific season of the year. There is another guardian in viewpoint, that you can change the seasons. Just select a wing that he likes and voilá, the season is changed. Most of the time, the required season to cross is winter, so choose the awkward wing to him and he will change the season to winter for you cross. There are times that he will not like the wing that you choose so go to a wine and lose on purpose for you achieve the desired season. After the Hortus Primus, you will go to Hortus Medius, Hortus Secundus, Hortus Tertius, Hortus Medius again and then the Hortus Quartius. In Hortus Quartius you will face the guardian of the last Seven Wonder. Just like Avalon, there is some swimming and obstacles points, but not all take for treasures, but for shortcuts.

There will be a sturdy wall on the beginning of the floor; there will be a picture of a young couple. Take that and leave this room. Going east on the B3 you will find yet another sturdy wall, go there and a stairs that take you to the B2.

Inside one of them it's the jewel, so try to open the drawer with the axe (it will activate an event reel). Isn't that much to do in this adventure. I advise you to not pick this adventure at all since it will not give you HP (since you don't fight any monsters) and the skills given will be very low. 4 - GARDEN OF DEATH (Local - Garden of death, Objective - find a lost letter, Turns - 290, Skills - Swimming and obstacle crossing) A man will ask you to retrieve a letter that he lost in this garden. In the very beginning, you will see a vegeplast. Check it and you will find that the vegeplasts that are in possession of the letter. This garden is divided in 2 sections: the west side (that you start) and the east side. The first place is go to the east side of the garden. You can go to a northern path, and also you can go just east if you have the obstacle crossing skill. When you reach the east side, check for the dead ends, the vegeplasts will be there, but they will escape with the letter. Do that for 3 times and leave the east section. In the west section, try to go southeast. Possibly you will find some poison plants that will make you retreat. Just find another way. Eventually you will hear a sound of a wall crumbling, go there and in the end of this road, the vegeplasts will be surrounded. And so they will leave the letter and run away. You can read the letter or not before delivering to the man who ask you. I don't know if there is a penalty to reading it, but since in the letter it's a silly story of romance "Oh, I love you" so just deliver it without looking. K ) GADEIRA 1 - THE 3 KEYS (Local - Deserted house, Objective - Defeat the house monster, Turns - 400) Go north and check the locked door, if you have the locksmith skill unlock the door, and enter the room, and see that there is a missing eye in the painting on the wall (now, that is just like Biohazard, isn't it?). If you haven't the locksmith skill look the west of the first floor to get some rusty keys, it work just like the locksmith skill, but you can only do it one time. On the east section of the first floor there is a giant beast that looks like a tiger. Be careful, this beast has several LP and can deal severe damage. Defeating him can be a good thing though, he gives the silver key, that works like the locksmith Lv. 4 and you can use it forever without the fear of breaking. Also you can put something in the place of the locksmith skill on the skill panel. If you don't want the trouble to defeat the tiger, there is a copper key in the house, but isn't as good as the silver key. On the second floor you will find the eye for the picture. Put the eye, and a passage to the underground will appear. In this basement, there are several high level chests there; also in the north end of the basement lays the boss of this adventure. BOSS : Necromancer (7 LP) 2 Ghouls (1 LP) 2 - SEVENFOLD TAIL (Local - The seven waterfalls, Objective - Cross the seven waterfalls, Turns - 200) They say that it's dangerous to cross the seven waterfalls on the "non tourists season" because the strong winds. OK, this is the "non visitors season" and you will cross it, right? Just follow the path, and sometimes a gust of wind will try to carry you back. The reel will decide if you fail or not, if you were successful, you will endure the wind and go forward, if you fail, you will retreat and also attract monsters nearby. On the end of the waterfalls, the wind will get stronger and so, the reel will became harder to hit and every step that you take forward (not always, though) will bring a reel. Endure all that to get on the end of the road and finish this adventure. 3 - SEVEN WATERFALLS (Local - The seven waterfalls, Objective - Check the seven waterfalls, Turns - 60) In this short adventure, the objective is seeing all seven waterfalls.

When a tidal wave appears (it appears on every 4 turns), it brings new seashells to get (great if the tide grabs the seashells before you). So go up the stairs and go southeast, until you find a small hollow. There is a place with 3 spots to put the seashells. The order to put the seashells is: Right, Upper and Left. Before that the adjacent room will open and going west you will find the ship wreckage, but before that you will face a giant beast BOSS: Giant beast (5 LP) After that the girl will command the enemies to retreat and say to you that she will sail the seas just like his father. L ) SOLOPHERO 1 - VALE OF THE SWORDS (Local - Vale of the swords, Objective - Cross the vale of the swords, Skills - Obstacle crossing) This adventure is essential if you want to reach Serin and Sadovos. First reach the broken bridge, when you try to cross it, a battle will begin in the bridge. This fight will cause the bridge to collapse and split your team in 2: one group will stay in the main floor and the other will get below you. The first team has to find a way to rescue your friends, and the second team has to climb up. Now, with the first team, go to the left and find the rope. Then with the second group, go south until you find the rope. Unfortunately the rope will break, and you have to find another way. In this part, the game will constantly change between the 2 groups. So with the first group, you have to go to the right then north until near the end of the valley. Then you will find a wine, grab it and return to the left until you stop. Your group will wait the second team there. Meanwhile, the second group will head left until they find a place to climb up. In the next floor, you will head northeast, and then when you reach near the summit, you will head west. The 2 groups will be rejoined once again. Then go east to the exit of the valley. Whew, that was tough, isn't it? 2 - COLISEUM RUINS (Local - Coliseum, Objective - Defeat the gladiators ghosts, Turns - 120) In the very beginning, you will find a door without keyhole, which can't be open right now. So explore this floor, and you will find several barrels. Each one of them has a vegeplast, if you investigate further 2 things can happened: You can be bitten and have to fight with the vegeplast or the vegeplast will reveal a switch, which is required to open the central door. There are 8 barrels, 4 with the switch, once you have pressed all the switches, the door will open. Beyond the door is the coliseum arena and the ghosts of the dead gladiators will challenge you. BOSS: 3 Minoton (3 LP) After that, keep following the road until you reach a place that you be informed that you can't proceed further. So the adventure ends. M ) SERIN 1 - MONSTER LAIR (Local - Monster lair, Objective - Grab treasures, Turns - 80) This is a straightforward dungeon but full of monsters, each dead end has a high level chest in it. On the eastern end of the dungeon the boss will appear. BOSS: 3 orc (3 LP) After that you can open 3 high level chests. After that just go back to the entrance to finish this adventure. 2 - SUNKEN CITY (Local - Sunken city, Objective - Find the memento of the city, turns - 300) The sunken city adventure is one of the longest quests in this game. The people of Serin ask you to find a memento that symbolizes Roanne, the sunken city. You will walk on the roof of Roanne, and sometimes there is a window opened, that makes you enter the house and, if you are lucky, there are treasures inside. You will soon realize that strange shadows are coming for you, when 5 shadows are reunited, the shadows will reveal himself as deadly fishes. To dodge them, enter in a window. Eventually, you will get into the music hall, but there is a monster also. BOSS: Giant beasts (8 LP) After defeating the boss, you will find an old piano, inside this piano, lays a melody disk. Then you will hear about why this disk represent so much for the villagers of the late Roanne. Grab the disk and the quest is over. 3 - JADE FOREST (Local - Jade forest, Objective - Cross the jade forest) The jade forest is the only way to get to Sadovos. The beginning of the forest it's not that hard. In the end of the road, you will see a sign to avoid the forest eye. And what you do? Of course, go to the forest. There it's just like a maze, but if you go south (but change constantly your direction like, go south, then southwest, then southeast) you eventually will get out of the forest eye. So go to the southwest end of the forest and you will reach Sadovos. N ) SADOVOS 1 - JADE FOREST (Local - Jade forest, Objective - Cross the jade forest) Exactly just like the Serin adventure. The only difference is that you have to go the opposite way. O ) VAFTOM 1 - TRIBAL CHIEF'S TRIAL (Local - Ocean road, Objective - Pass trial, Turns - 100, Skills - Swimming) This place has some high level chests but is only accessible via swimming. Be sure to have this skill. For passing the trial, you have to find 2 orbs of trial and touch it, but beware, the person that touch the orb will become weak. Also, you will fight the guardian of the orbs. BOSS: 3 Black Blowshark (3 LP) After finding the 2 orbs of trial, head north and take a piece to the Whalebone to pass the trial and clear the adventure. 2 - KNIGHT'S MAUSOLEUM (local - Knights mausoleum, Objective - Defeat the guardian and take the treasure, Turns - 140) This quest has a very limited number of turns, so go fast and not waste much turns opening chests or healing. Head south and take the stairs, there go to the east, then another pair of stairs, until you reach a place called the Hades corridors. There you will know that there is something huge there, then investigate every chamber of rebirth (the big rooms) until you find the boss. Be careful, though, this boss is HARD. BOSS: Giants (12 LP) After you defeat them come back to the stairs, from where you came. Then go to the southwest, and find another set of stairs. There you will find the corridor of heaven. Also there is a boss here, so investigate every chamber of rebirth. BOSS: Wildlings (2 LP) You will notice that 2 rooms appeared. Go to that room in the chamber of heaven. He will say that it's Lord Dixon mausoleum. Leave this floor and go to the corridor of Hades. There enter the unlocked room and it will say that it's Iskandar mausoleum. There, you will finish this adventure. NOTE - As you may notice, the Giant boss is very strong and this was the place that I've learn most of the arts in this game, so it's advised to replay this quest (which means, not clearing it) until you are with a full set of powerful arts. 3 - DANGERS IN THE MINES (Local - Mines, Objective - Find the bomb ore, Turns - 300) You have to find 2 bomb ores that are in power of 2 working beasts. There is one on the surface and other on the floor below. The bomb in the surface it is located in the northeast of the floor. There will be a sleeping monster there, dig 3 times, when the monster seems like he will wake up, stop digging. Then continue the dig, but this time let the monster wake. You will get the bomb ore this time The second one is located in the west of the mines. There will be a foot of the working beast playing with the bomb ore, grab it by force and receive a little damage. Then go to the first floor and find a blocked wall on south of the first working monster. There put the 2 bomb ores and clear the way. Go forward until you find the reason why the working beasts are scared. BOSS: Jestor Y (5 LP) 8 - - GLOSSARY This section was made to help the players to understand the world of Unlimited SaGa and his historical backgrounds. This game has an incredible historical culture, but you can only understand it fully if you played the game with several characters. ANUBITO - A beast-like creatures gifted with intelligence and the ability to communicate with humans, but even so, they don't cooperate that much with humans. Other interesting fact about the anubitos it's that they don't have any type of leader in his social structure. The humans sees the anubito with suspicious and some of them, even hate. The hate from the humans towards the anubitos grew stronger when an anubito called Dagul Bos, invaded Escata, destroyed the palace and killed the king and the queen. ARCANIANS - A race created by the gods with a human-like appearance. But their beautiful silver hair and dark skin impressed everyone. His technological advances created wonderful things, including the seven wonders sites. But that advance and knowledge cost, in the end, their own existence, when the world was almost on brink of destruction because of their actions. The gods confined them from existence to save the world, and they remained forgotten for a thousand years. Only one arcanian remains in the present, Faedaljen. BLADE OF ESCATA - The blade of Escata is the heirloom of the Escata royal family. The blade legacy was passed for 23 generations and began when Iskandar gave the blade to King Fouland, Escata's first ruler. The blade is made from Altemana, a rare material that embodies the power of the 5 elements, and his power increases when there are some gears made of Altemana nearby. Its power is beyond human comprehension and his existence it's associated to Chaos as well. CHAOS - An inhabitant from the space. His mighty power scared even the gods, when the arcanians find about his existence. He was banished a thousand of years ago by the gods, but he is still alive in the Lazulia moon, waiting for a chance to come back to the world. CHAPA - The Chapas are a squirrel-like race, which lives in the Chapa village, near Longshank. They are friendly with humans (as they are with everyone else, in fact) and they are pretty easy going with everything. The only problems that affects the Chapas are the lack of abundant water, since they considers drought levels of water that is enough to humans. The Chapas also thinks highly of Iskandar, since he once he saved the Chapa village from drought. GOLDEN AGE - Most people associates the golden age with the arcanian's seven wonders ruins, but the golden age was also a period of great prosperity and also great deeds made by humans. Legends say that when the seven wonders are active again, this will bring a new golden age era. GREAT DEEDS - Wonderful things were done in the golden age, and some of them are still remembered even today like the creation of the seven wonders, the containment of Pharos in Tal´fa Palacaleo by Alyce Ambrosia, the defeat of the dragon's king Dracos Archaeos by Leith Torles, the construction of Escata kingdom and Iskandaria and the discovery of the most powerful magic tablet and the ultimate forbidden spell. In all this events, Iskandar was present. ISKANDAR - It's impossible to talk about the history of the world without mentioning Iskandar. Iskandar it's praised by the hero of the world, not only by the humans but also for the chapa tribe. He is a being created by the gods (or even a god himself) that appears over the times when the world is about to change. But he is not the same person each time; he appears with different faces and personality. That why the legends about Iskandar's life and death are so distant between each other. He was already called a conqueror, a powerless old man, a beggar and even a cruel tyrant, but every kid knows its deeds and his importance for the world. KNIGHTHOOD - The military power of the world, commanded by the Burgundy family. The knights, with his leader Lord Maximillian Burgundy, protect the cities, the temples and the trade roads. They have also a huge rank all over the world, sustained in part by taxes pay by the carriers and other not so honest ways. Of the divisions of the knighthood, the Temple Knights have the highest respect of the population, which supports the knighthood, mainly because of the Escata incident. Among the knighthood ranks also there is inner rivalry of the Temple Knights and the Outland Knights. KNIGHS OF THE ROUND TABLE - Not much are known about the knight of the round table, but they are the dark rulers of the world and also are immortal beings. They live on the deep ends of the Undercity Pharos, and are even suspected that Phantom, the leader of the round table, might be Pharos himself. They manipulate the dark beings, the ensanguined league and also use the shadows to command the world. Iskandar and the arcanians want to wipe them out from existence. LAZULIA AND ROSALIA - They are the 2 moons that are closer to the world. Lazulia has a blue color and Rosalia has a red color. The Arcanians build a temple dedicated to Lazulia and Rosalia, the Two Moons Temple, in Kimbali. The Two Moons Temple it is one of the seven wonders. It seems that Chaos still lives in the Lazulia Moon. LEITH TORLES - Leith Torles was the most powerful magician and alchemist that existed in the face of the world. He was the human that subjugated the dragon king and he also made experiments with several materials. His deeds includes the creation of the Dragonheart, a powerful material made of crystallized hearts of dragons. His tower, built in Nivacolina, resists until today and his descendants still lives in Torle. LESSER TRIBES - Other tribes of the world includes the lilleans, the petrans and the vampires. They are called lesser tribes because of his small population (or, in the case of the vampires, because isn't a clear number of the population). OUTLAND KNIGHTS - The ranks of the knights that protects the frontiers towns and the trade routes. The knights that joins the outland knights have a free will, the desire to help people out and also know more about the world where they live. The temple knight has a long term rivalry with them. REGINA LEONE FESTIVAL - A festival that happens every year in Vaftom. Its original purpose was to celebrate Vaftom-Escata cooperation, but nowadays anyone remembers that, so it's just a traditional grand festival with a ritual. After the festival, the ritual of the memorial fire begins. It's a ritual that persons put fire on dry wood in the Elve Mountains, creating pictures of Dragons and other animals. This symbolizes the passage of the soul of the dead to heaven, and a way to honor the memory of the dead persons. RELICS - After the Arcanians were gone, beside the seven wonders they left as well some artifacts with technology totally unknown to the humans. They were called relics, and with the discover of those relics caused a revolution to the world. Drifters, appraisers and inventors jobs are based only on the discover of those relics on the seven wonders sites. The appraisers and the inventors, based on the relics investigation, build some of the technology that exists in the world. But not every relic that was found created a direct well fare to mankind, there is some cursed relics as well; it's main purpose is unknown but they created several problems to the persons that finds or uses them. TEMPLE KNIGHTS - The temple knights are the group of the knights that protects the temples. They have the most political influence of the knights, since they have the support of the population and of the fact that they are based on the larger cities. Being with that kind of power, they also have to deal with corruption and actions with low ethics (like charging fees from carriers or killing groups against the temple knights). They are trying to expand his area of influence to the frontiers towns by constructing temples. THE ENSANGUINED LEAGUE - There are humans that, in quest for power and immortality, made a blood pact with the knights of the round table. They sell his body and get an eternal life, but they also lost their humanity. This "humans" became know as the ensanguined league. They are loyal servants of the knights of the round table and make the dirty work to them, as the knights keep themselves in the shadows. THE SEVEN WONDERS - The arcanians created 7 monuments in different parts of the world. This magnificent work of engineering, that was a mix of high-level machinery and a stunning beauty, became known as "the seven wonders". The arcanian technology, knowledge and culture are imbedded on every one of the seven sites. The purposes of the seven wonders are unknown, but it's safe to affirm that they conducted technology experiments and celestial researches on there. This fascination for the seven wonders draw hordes of adventurers to the sites for look for something of value or to unravel the mysteries of the ancient ruins. Now it's a place with pretty much anything of value left and it's also crowded with monsters, but most of their beauty and mystery remains until today. UNCHARTED AREAS - It was Iskandar that began to chart the current world map, based on his travels, but there yet is some uncharted areas on the world. There are persons that are trying to discover the new frontiers of the world. West of Torle, north of Serin, and south of Iskandaria are the largest places without a clear knowledge of the topography and vegetation, and it's very unlikely that someone lives in there today. 9 - - SKILLS / ARTS / MATERIALS A ) Skills list Here you will find the skills divided by category and a quick description of its use.

The movie shows the opening movie of FFX-2 with some scenes of the game, then another section with story related scenes, with songs played by Komi Kuda. The curious thing that I notice of the video, it's that songs are still in Japanese just like the voice acting of Yuna and the other characters in the video. Perhaps the English voice acting wasn't ready at the point of releasing Unlimited SaGa. About the decision that Square Enix will leave the original songs or the voice acting, probably it won't but at least you will know what Yuna's voice looks like. Also, when I heard about the preview of the FFX-2, I wondered if that was the 'another story' video that came with FFX: International (JAP version). Unfortunately it's not, but there are reports that the Euro version of Unlimited SaGa will come with this video. Lucky guys. UPDATE - The FFX-2 opening song for the US release was changed, for the worst. C ) What's missing on the FAQ. The arts and magic list are not complete. Not so sure about the forbidden arts and hairdryer/hummingbird works properly. Some things aren't as good as they should, but the core (the 7 characters walkthrough) is completed. If you have a little patience, this will evolve to a good FAQ (at least, I think so...^_^), there is also great FAQ's of Unlimited SaGa in gamefaqs.com, so check there for info not covered in this FAQ. If you have any suggestion of new sections or a way to improve the game tutorial, send me an E-mail. D ) Last thoughts I really liked Unlimited SaGa. OK, perhaps it was the 4 of the more frustrating hours of my life when I first picked up. My friend and me were clueless to what to do, since the game doesn't help one single bit and I was this close to stop playing. But the true fun began when I actually learn how that game worked, so every time that Akitoshi Kawazu (the game director) slap in my face and laughed of my disgrace in this game, I came back even more determined. I cannot admit that anyone or any bad review let me away from this game, so here we are now. 170 hours later, I managed to beat the game with all characters. The FAQ is complete, thanks to you, readers. But I start to wonder: making this FAQ to help people out stuck in the game it's a good thing, but perhaps also I am taking away the joy of discover, which it's the game strongest point. Anyway, enjoy this fine game.
