    CREDITS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     - I owe a great deal of thanks to the writers of the walkthroughs for Tales of
       the Abyss on GameFAQs, especially Gray Fox. Referencing their guides was a
       huge help in determining the general order of the sidequests and also how to
       go about finding them.
    
     - I also owe many, many thanks to Cyllya's Tales of the Abyss sidequest guide, 
       which helped me find the sidequests and ensure that I included all of them.
    
     - I'm very grateful to the places I found some data I was missing, which
       include the Extras Guide, the Din's Shop Guide, AuraChannelerChris and
       various others on YouTube, and Aselia, the Tales wiki.
       
     - Thanks to Adam Sharkey for a tip about the placement of the second part of
       the Labyrinth Mansion sidequest.
       
     - Thanks to Humphrey Binfuffé for a tip about the placement of third part of
       the Black Dream Fan Club sidequest.
    
     - Thanks to Sam Lavin for tips about having Nebilim equipped for the first
       part of the Catalyst Weapons sidequest and about a typographical error
       in the second part of the Labyrinth Mansion sidequest.
    
     - Thanks to vardonir for tips about the cutoff point for Dr. Mambo, an error
       in the location of the Sand Worm, needing the Key of Darkness in Nam Cobanda
       Isle, the Tactical Leader title, Anise's Little Big Chef title, and part 2
       of Fonic Sight.
    
     - Thanks to Hieu Le for a tip about an error in the start point of Jewel of
       Gardios part 3.
       
     - Thanks to ShinigamiMiroku for a tip about an error in the starting point for
       Black Dream Fan Club part 1.
       
     - Thanks to Caden Rogers for a tip about the cutoff point for Yulia City Items
       part 3.
       
     - Thanks to Candice B. for another tip about the starting point for Jewel of
       Gardios part 3 and a tip about a possible glitch in triggering the Abyss
       Replica Facility on a first playthrough.
       
     - Thanks to Jesse for tips about the prerequisites for various parts of
       Forbidden Artes, an issue with getting the Tactical Leader title, and
       various places that needed some clarification.
       
     - Thanks to Malcolm Blake for tips about the start point for Yulia City Items
       part 3 and the extra skit after meeting Count Almandine in Chesedonia.
       
     - Thanks to Joseph Kanagy for tips about the possible glitch in triggering
       Abyss Replica Facility on a first playthough and an error in the location
       of Nebilim's Crag in Catalyst Weapons part 6.

    NOTES ABOUT THIS GUIDE
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
     - This guide lists Tales of the Abyss's sidequests in the order they appear in
       the game. The various parts of each sidequest are listed separately so that
       you can do each part as you reach that point in the game.
    
     - Locations refer to the where you can find the place to START that particular
       part of the quest.
    
     - Start points listed as "enter [place]" refer to the first time the game's
       storyline takes you to that place.
    
     - Prerequisites listed as "clear the game" mean that you'll need to be on a
       second or further playthrough.
    
     - Milestone events are only listed to help you keep track of where you are and
       ensure that you haven't missed anything.
    
     - The bracketed codes in the table of contents will take you to the first part
       of a given sidequest. If you're looking for the parts of a specific quest,
       just replace the "01" with the next number to get to the next part of the
       sidequest. Or you can just use the three letter code to get to all parts of
       the sidequest in order.
    
     - I have attempted to make this guide as spoiler-free as possible, but a few
       may have slipped through. As long as you don't read too far ahead, you
       should be fine. Any unavoidable spoilers are labeled.

    CHRONOLOGICAL SIDEQUESTS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    --------------------
    [MCF01] Master Chefs
    --------------------
    Part 1/19
    Location: Engeve
    Start: enter Engeve
    Cutoff: none?
    Prerequisites: none
    
    From the west entrance of Engeve, go into the house to the north. Inside,
    there's a woman standing by the stove. Talk to her and agree to help, then
    follow the path down and to the right and go into the house with the
    waterwheel. Go in and talk to the old lady on the right, then back to the first
    house to get the Spaghetti recipe.
    
    If you're going to get cooking titles, start cooking from the beginning of the
    game. Use one character and have them cook after every battle. Once they've
    mastered a recipe (gotten three stars), replace it with another one. Mastering
    recipes takes a while, which is why it's a good idea to start early. Choose
    whomever you like for now -- eventually, you'll want to use a character who
    isn't in the party yet, since they get two titles out of mastering the recipes.
    I'll remind you to have them cook when they join the party.
    
    ------------------------
    [CBK01] Collector's Book
    ------------------------
    Part 1/2
    Location: Engeve
    Start: stay at Engeve's inn
    Cutoff: enter Akzeriuth
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Talk to the shopkeeper Luke tried to steal the apple from. Enter the Cheagle
    Woods and go left as soon as the road forks to find a treasure chest containing
    a Secret Box. If you want, you can return to Engeve immediately and give him
    the box. Otherwise, wait until Guy joins the party. (You'll probably see a
    scene at night before you'll be able to go back.) Bring the Secret Box to the
    man, and he'll give you the Collector's Book in return. Also, prices of food in
    Engeve will be lowered by 20%.
    
    --------------------
    [MCF02] Master Chefs
    --------------------
    Part 2/19
    Location: St. Binah
    Start: enter St. Binah
    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Go to the eastern area of St. Binah and enter the first house on the left.
    Examine the notebook lying on the floor to get the Sandwich recipe.
    
    ---------------------------------
    [SBM01] St. Binah's Medicine Shop
    ---------------------------------
    Part 1/1
    Location: St. Binah
    Start: enter St. Binah
    Cutoff: enter Akzeriuth
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Go to the eastern side of the city and enter the medicine shop in the back,
    just past the ladder. Talk to the man behind the counter on the left. He wants
    a Gel Base and a Cotton.
    
    You can find the Gel Base in Search Point 1 and the Cotton in Search Point 4.
    One important note -- you may not get the items the first time you check the
    search points, so save before checking them. This will let you reset the game
    if you don't get what you're looking for. Otherwise you'll need to enter and
    then exit a dungeon or city for the search points to reset, and there aren't
    any nearby. You don't even have to quit the game; just go to the System menu
    and load your save file again.
    
    Look at Cyllya's world map on GameFAQs for help with where to find them. Search
    Point 1 is in square G5 (west of St. Binah, cross the river via the bridge and
    head south along the coast). Search Point 4 is in H6 (east of the entrance to
    the Fubras River -- follow the path south until you reach the bridge that's out
    and go west from there).
    
    On returning to St. Binah, give the man the items to get a Miracle Gel, a new
    item shop opened, and medicine prices in St. Binah lowered by 20%.
    
    ------------------------------
    [STB01] Soil Tree of St. Binah
    ------------------------------
    Part 1/1
    Location: St. Binah
    Start: meet Field Marshal McGovern
    Cutoff: enter Akzeriuth
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Climb up the ladder on the eastern side of St. Binah and examine the things
    there for a scene.
    
    ----------------------------
    [BDF01] Black Dream Fan Club
    ----------------------------
    Part 1/3
    Location: St. Binah
    Start: stay at the inn in St. Binah
    Cutoff: enter Choral Castle?
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Immediately after entering the eastern side of St. Binah, find a bulletin board
    with a poster on it. Hit the poster on the left with Mieu Fire for a scene and
    200 Gald.
    
    --------------------
    [SNT01] Sonic Thrust
    --------------------
    Part 1/1
    Location: St. Binah, Kaitzur, OR Kaitzur Naval Port
    Start: Guy joins the party
    Cutoff: enter Akzerituh
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Stay at the inn in one of these three places for a scene and the arte Sonic
    Thrust for Luke. Kaitzur's is free, so I'd just stop as soon as you get there.
    An inn's on your left if you're coming in from the Malkuth side.
    
    ----
    Note
    ----
    After you reach Kaitzur, Anise will join the party. Have her start cooking
    after each battle until she masters all the recipes -- doing so will eventaully
    get you two titles for her.
    
    --------------------
    [SWD01] Sword Dancer
    --------------------
    Part 1/3
    Location: Choral Castle
    Start: clear Choral Castle
    Cutoff: enter Akzeriuth
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Examine the sword in the entrance hall of Choral Castle to fight the Sword
    Dancer. This can also be done later when you pass by on your way to Akzeriuth,
    and the fight will be easier. Don't worry; I'll remind you when the time comes.
    
    ----------------------
    [TSP01] Tear's Pendant
    ----------------------
    Part 1/2
    Location: Chesedonia
    Start: enter Chesedonia
    Cutoff: enter Astor's mansion

    Find the coachman from Tataroo Valley in the marketplace near the inn on the
    Malkuth side and talk to him for a scene.

    --------------------
    [ALN01] Ant Lion Man
    --------------------
    Part 1/6
    Location: Chesedonia
    Start: enter Chesedonia
    Cutoff: enter Astor's mansion
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Go toward the south side of Chesedonia, in the part of the Kimlascan side with
    the inn. The Ant Lion Man is hiding back in an alley between the inn and an old
    man who is sitting on the ground with a jar. Talk to the Ant Lion Man and give
    him an Apple Gel; he'll give you the recipe for Fried Chicken in return.
    
    ------------------
    [FRI01] Free Items

    Start: enter Chesedonia
    Cutoff: ???
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Across from the Ant Lion Man's alley is a merchant in a booth between the two
    weapon shops. Talk to him for a scene. Choose Food to get three Beef, three
    Chicken, and three Rice; choose Items to get two Apple Gels, two Poison
    Bottles, and two Magic Lenses.
    
    --------------------
    [HWM01] Have We Met?
    --------------------
    Part 1/1
    Location: Baticul
    Start: audience with King Ingobert
    Cutoff: ???

    Talk to Pere in the courtyard of Fabre manor for a brief scene.
    
    -------------------
    [GYA01] Guy's Artes
    -------------------
    Part 1/7
    Location: Baticul
    Start: audience with King Ingobert
    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Talk to Pere in the courtyard of Fabre manor for a scene with Guy. The above
    scene will trigger first, so just talk to him again after it for this one.
    
    -------------------------
    [AAB01] Arcane Arte Books
    -------------------------
    Part 1/6
    Location: Baticul
    Start: talk to Susanne after returning to Baticul
    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Talk to Ramdas in Fabre mansion for a scene and 20,000 Gald. From there, go
    down to the port and head toward the docks to find the merchant. Fork over the
    20,000 Gald you just got in exchange for Arcana Albertis. Luke learns the arte
    Demon Fist.
    
    ----------------------------
    [CNE01] Contamination Effect
    ----------------------------
    Part 1/4
    Location: Baticul
    Start: audience with King Ingobert
    Cutoff: enter the Abandoned Factory
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Go to the port for a scene with Jade. To do this immediately after the previous
    sidequest, leave via the aircar and come back for the scene.
    
    ----
    Note
    ----
    While you're in Baticul, pick up at least five Rice. Try not to cook things
    with Rice for a while so that you have them for a later sidequest a way down
    the road. Don't worry too much if you accidentally cook them -- you'll still be
    able to complete the sidequest; you'll just have to go a little out of your way
    to do so. If you're working on getting some cooking titles, you may as well
    keep cooking your Rice and do this the long way to get some more time to cook.
    
    ------------------------

    ------------------------
    Part 1/3
    Location: Baticul

    make and Search Points you have to find, so I'll remind you to do it later when
    it's a little easier.

    organize his warehouse. By doing so, you'll get a Stun Bracelet, a Pineapple
    Gel, a Rebirth Doll, and 5000 Gald. I won't explain how to do it here because
    it'll be tedious and confusing in text, but you can search YouTube for
    something along the lines of "Tales of the Abyss warehouse" and you should be
    able to find a tutorial.

    major spoiler. If you'd like to do this one later, when it won't be a spoiler,
    just watch for my reminder.
    
    Head over to the Malkuth Military Headquarters west of the palace. Go in, to

    Just before the start point of the sidequest below, your party will split and
    take care of two different errands that will have you running across the field.
    Avoiding battles during this part will get you some items at the end of it.

    Our friend in Yulia City is in need of five Maces now. Why is beyond me, but
    hand them over anyway. This sidequest is done, but I promise it wasn't entirely

    later on. If you don't have the Maces, you'll be able to get them before long

    Noticed how high prices are in shops right now? Well, both prices of things you
    purchase and things you sell have skyrocketed, and there's really no reason to
    keep all of your old equipment. You may as well sell it now and get the extra
    Gald. It'll come in handy down the road -- there are a few unfortunately
    expensive sidequests.
    
    Also, if you want to see an extra skit, I'm told you can get one by resting in
    the Chesedonia inn after meeting Count Almandine in Chesedonia.

    building on the left to find Count Almandine. Back to Engeve and to Rose's
    house. Next, Kaitzur, Malkuth side (north). Scene. Before you leave, talk to
    Frings. Then to Kaitzur Naval Port, and into the Kimlasca Base. Get Cecille's
    Sword. Engeve again, Rose's house. Get Frings' Letter. Return to Cecille in
    Kaitzur Naval Port. Now to Chesedonia, Astor's Mansion. (Note that you can't
    fly through the eastern part of the Zao Desert due to sandstorms, so be sure to
    go around.) Get the Memento Ring. Kaitzur, Malkuth side to speak with Frings
    (fly around to avoid sandstorms again), and then Kaitzur Naval Port, Kimlasca
    Base one last time. Congratulations, you've finished the most tedious part of
    this sidequest.

    This sidequest can take you around in several different orders, depending on
    which city you go to first. I've listed one below; if you choose to go to a
    different city first, make sure you wind up in Grand Chokmah at some point to
    get the Dark Wings Badge.
    
    Start with Fourth Monument Hill. Scene. Now head for Keterburg. Scene. Next,
    Grand Chokmah, and dock at the harbor. One more scene, and York gives you the

    Cross the river into new area of Tataroo Valley and go south and then east when
    you can. Just after you turn east, there's a break in the bushes leading up to
    a rather suspicious boulder with some vines against the wall. Hit it with Mieu
    Attack and go on in. Head right until you see a cluster of fonons for a scene
    and an upgrade to the Sorcerer's Ring: Mieu Wing. Use it around this area to
    hit some switches and pick up a Knight Mace, a Life Bottle, and a Wing Bottle.
    You can also use it to climb up onto certain tree limbs and get treasure
    chests.

    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: none
    
    You can now fight in the Coliseum. It'll be easier as you get further on in the
    game since your characters will grow stronger and you'll have better equipment.
    It opens now, though, which is why I'm listing it here. By winning the Advanced
    level of the Singles competition with a character, you'll get a title and a
    weapon for him or her. Each character gets his or her best weapon as a reward
    except for Jade, but he is the only one who gets a costume title out of it.
    
    Luke: Sword of Swords / Soul Crush
    Tear: Perfect Healer / Blue Crystal Rod
    Jade: Battle Master / Dunamis
    Anise: Devastating Cutie / Grand Cross
    Guy: Golden Knight / Shakunage
    Natalia: Coliseum Princess / Celestial Star
    
    By completing the Beginner level of Singles with any character, you'll unlock
    the Baticuloon mini-game. After unlocking it, you can practice at Miyagi Dojo
    under the option "Mr. Miyagi's Secret Training."
    
    ----
    Note
    ----
    You've probably fought 300 battles by now, so stop by Miyagi Dojo and pick up
    the Sigmund Tactician title for Guy. If you don't get the scene, make sure
    you've viewed all of Miyagi's tutorials and that you have fought 300 battles.

    Go back to the restaurant on the second floor of the Hotel in Keterburg. Set
    Proud Maid as Tear's title and talk to the guy there for a scene. You'll now be
    thrown into six rounds of the waitress mini-game. Get through it as best you
    can for the Fruit Cocktail recipe. Again, if you want help with this, take a
    look at the tutorial below.
    
    ----
    Note
    ----
    The storyline will now send you to Grand Chokmah. If you sold your old
    equipment during the war and haven't spent all the money, you may have enough
    to purchase Tear's Pendant (100,000 Gald). If you have the money, talk to Raiz,
    who's standing at the foot of the stairs inside the Shopping Center.

    Talk to Tritheim, then head for Keterburg. Go to Nephry's house and talk with
    her. Next, go to Grand Chokmah and find Emperor Peony in his chamber. Jade is
    Jade, Peony is Peony, and you get the Lost Celesti. Swing by Jade's Office in
    the Malkuth Military Headquarters (go in, south, south again, and west) for one
    more scene.

    open your in-game world map and look at the "Other" tab. Search Points 1-4 and
    6 are currently in the Qliphoth; Search Point 5 is in the Outer Lands. Din's

    Head back to Sheridan and go right from the Meeting Hall. Make sure Mieu's
    action is set to Mieu Attack, and then talk to the guy blocking the stairs. Pay
    him 1,000 Gald to play a mini-game in which you use Mieu to break a bunch of
    little barrels to get stuff. If you can break 18 or more within the time limit,
    Luke will get the title Barrel Breaker.
    
    If you're having trouble, go for the ones in the center and don't bother with
    the ones farther out. With the little groups of barrels that are closer
    together, you can hit more than one barrel in a row without even moving.

    three monsters you'll need to fight for this sidequest. I'll point them out as
    we come to them. You can trigger this scene on your first playthrough, but
    unfortunately you can't complete the sidequest until your second or later.

    Prerequisites: make a level 3 item at Din's Shop
    
    Enter Din's Shop for a scene. Jade gets the title "Lawman." Again, I'll refer
    you to the Din's Shop Guide on GameFAQs for how to do this. I think it's pretty
    doable in the Gels category: just give Din a lot of the items that give you
    points in that category, and be sure to include the ones that will make you
    level up. To meet the requirement, I gave an average payment of 2000 Gald and
    got a Miracle Gel.

    (Side note: if you're on a second or further playthrough and want to see the
    Abyss Silver costume, leave this one until after you complete the Abyss Man
    sidequest in Grand Chokmah.)
    
    Enter Duke Fabre's Residence. Ramdas will meet you at the door. Watch the
    ensuing scene, then leave the city. Be warned: where you're about to go, the
    monsters are not easy. Take a look at your world map. See the river that cuts
    through the Rugnican continent? That's where you need to go. You can get into
    it by sea the channel between Rugica and the desert. You do have to be in the
    river, not flying above it. Sail upstream until the river opens into a lake.
    There's a shore with some large mushrooms in the northwest part of the lake.
    Welcome to the Mushroom Road.
    
    Someone very familiar has beaten us here. He gets the title Loving Son, and
    you're off into the Mushroom Road. The annoying part is that you don't get Mieu
    for this, so come back later and use him to hit the spore-spewing mushrooms to
    get items and monsters to come out. Alternatively, you can leave the Mushroom
    Road and come back in to take Luke and Mieu with you now. The instructions
    below will take you directly to the Rugnican death caps. Feel free to explore
    if you have Mieu right now; otherwise, there isn't much point in it.
    
    From the start, go right. When the road forks, go north and then east through a
    hollow log. When you come out, take the northernmost fork of the road. Follow
    the path around and up on top of the purple mushrooms. When the path splits, go
    north. Follow the path until it forks again. The northern path takes you to a
    chest with a Miracle Gel; the southern path leads onward. Go through the hollow
    log, south at the T-shaped intersection, and examine the purple mushroom in the
    middle of the road. Congratulations, you have obtained a Rugnican death cap. If
    you have Luke along, you can examine it for a two-line scene with Mieu.
    
    Before you leave, be sure to get the Greater Flightstone (instructions below).
    When you're done, return to Baticul and give the medicine to Susanne.

    difficult in the slightest (I put the difficulty on Hard to start getting some
    fights for the Berserker title racked up. Just remember to turn it off before
    the next tough battle). They'll get harder as you go, but not by much. You'll

     - Leave the room to find the last rappig in the hall.
    
    Return to Peony and he'll give you the Spa Membership. Jade gets the title

    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: complete part 1 and complete the King's Portrait quest
    
    Find our old friends Shiba and Peko on the left side of Keterburg in front of
    the inn, by the pavilion with the treasure chest on top (incidentally, you can
    get that treasure chest by going to the plaza where the kids are having a
    snowball fight and whacking the snowball machine on the right with Mieu
    Attack). Watch the scene. You'll wind up in Mt. Zaleho. Well, there goes the
    ecosystem.
    
    Go down into the volcano. Looks a little different now, huh? You can take the
    paths that were once blocked by lava to get some treasure. While you're here,
    be sure to pick up the music disc (instructions below).
    
    Find the area where you were avoiding the dragon's fireballs. A little after
    the path starts to slope upward around the area, there's a fork in the road.
    It's a little hard to see -- keep to the outside of the curve and you'll find
    it. Go down and run up the slope to the north. Follow the path to... fonons!
    Congratulations, you now have Mieu Fire 2. Use it to light the torches. The one
    on the left connects to the passage ring area; the one on the right leads to a
    Special Gel and Flamberge.
    
    You can also get the moving torches near the door to the passage ring now. You
    have to time it carefully to hit all three -- try to get it as the first one is
    moving into the middle. You get a Carmine Chamber for your trouble.

    avoid damage on the spikes by walking across them, and killing certain enemies
    will restore lost HP. The boxes that can't be moved can be destroyed with Mieu
    Attack, and you can use Mieu Wing to hit the patterned floor switches. Play it

    [UFS02] Upgraded Flightstones
    -----------------------------
    Part 2/2
    Location: Mt. Roneal
    Start: clear Mt. Zaleho the second time
    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: complete part 1, complete the Sorcerer's Ring quest
    
    To start, open up your world map and take a look at Sylvana (Keterburg's
    continent). See the place on the southwest side that's cut off from the rest of
    the continent? That's where you want to go. Technically, you can do this
    sidequest without completing part 1, but that'll let us land right there
    instead of going all the way through Mt. Roneal again. Land in the northwest
    part of the area and go into Mt. Roneal via the entrance there.
    
    Explore the area. You can use Mieu Wing to get some treasure chests, but don't
    bother with the far right tree just yet, as we'll be heading there shortly. If
    you go to the left of the area, you can get into the river to grab the Vorpal
    Sword. When you're ready, head up through the passage on the northwest side of
    the area. You want to arrange the moveable torch things so that they line up
    with the ones on the pillars on either side of the path. The center torch of
    each group should be on the uniquely patterned tile. You should end up with
    three diagonal lines of torches. The farthest one along slants from top right
    to bottom left, as does the one closest to the entrance. The middle group
    slants the opposite way, from top left to bottom right. All together, they
    create a zigzag pattern that goes something like this:
    /
    \
    /
    
    When that's set up, leave the way you came. Use Mieu Wing on the far right tree
    we skipped earlier and go into the cave. Grab the 15,000 Gald chest and light
    the torch with Mieu Fire. Go through the now opened door and melt the snow at
    the bottom of the screen to get a Wind Cape. Go through the door on the other
    side of the entrance you just came through. Use Mieu Fire to light both torches
    in one shot. Take the Red Lavender from the chest and go through the new door.
    
    More torches! This time you'll need to stand off to the side, fire through one
    torch, bounce off the blue crystal, and hit the other torch. It takes a little
    practice, but it's doable if you stand about Luke's height or so both down and
    to the outside from a torch. When that's done, go through the new door, up the
    stairs and around, and pull the blue crystal onto the patterned tile. That
    done, go all the way back to the field.
    
    Take the Albiore and head to the east side of the same area of the continent.
    There's another entrance to Mt. Roneal there. Enter, grab the 7,800 Gald, and
    head straight through the area, ignoring the other little paths, and into the
    next room. Turn left when you reach the circular intersection. There are two
    paths in the next area; take the one closer to the bottom of the screen. We're
    now on a ledge above the torches we arranged in the zigzag pattern earlier. Push
    the blue crystal onto the patterned tile, and everything should be in place. Go
    back and take the upper path. Position yourself on the patterned tile, aim, and
    light all the torches at once with Mieu Fire. Again, it may take a few tries. I
    got it when I positioned the onscreen character in the upper right corner of the
    patterned tile.
    
    All the way back to the Albiore now. Climb aboard and return to the entrance we
    were at before in the northwest part of this area. Enter the cave again. Push
    the torches out of the way and go through the door that just opened. To the
    field! It makes me happy how all the field monsters here look like the field
    monsters in Symphonia. Anyway, once you're outside, head northeast. When you
    can't go any further, turn east and go up onto the cliff. Follow the mountains
    east southeast, and go up another cliff. Examine the search point to the
    southwest to finally obtain the Refined Flightstone. If only it could also
    summon the Albiore here so we didn't have to walk back... oh well.
    
    ----
    Note
    ----
    While you're flying around, find all the search points. You can do this later,
    but doing it now will help you get a title soon. Cyllya's world map is
    extremely helpful for this.

    the sand. This is the Sand Worm. Defeat it to get the Gae Bolg, one of the items
    our Katz friend is looking for.

    Take out your world map and find Radessia (the continent Sheridan is on). Note
    the peninsula that sticks out on the north side. That's where you want to head.
    Explosions and whirlpools block your way, but there's a cave behind those
    whirlpools. Back up, land in the sea, and charge full speed ahead to get in. If
    you back into the next continent over, you should be able to get in. There are
    lots of fun things to explore here.
    
    Go up the ladder and out the door at the bottom of the screen. Watch the scene.
    Head right until you see a blue section. There's a guy standing by a door. Go
    inside and through the door in the back. Walk forward for a scene. You can now
    use the elevator, but there's more to do here first. While you're in the room,
    pick up the music disc (instructions below). If you have the Key of Darkness,
    leave via the room's middle exit to get one more scene and the title Noble
    Rogue for Luke.

    Prerequisites: enter Nam Cobanda Isle, complete the Star of Malkuth quest
    
    Talk to Elion, who's now behind the counter in his little area. He wants a
    giant fish bone, which is a trade item found in Search Points 3 and 8. (Equip
    the Curious Princess title on  Natalia and check Search Point 3 for a better
    chance of getting one.) Hand it over, then go two sections to the left and talk
    to Elion behind that counter. He'll give Luke the Mors Draconis, which enables
    you to play Tales of Dragon Buster.
    
    I'm not extremely well acquainted with how the game works, but I know there are
    maps of the levels available online. To get the princess ending, collect the
    two rods or two circlets or both along the way and beat the dragon at the end.
    Note that you can hold EITHER A SWORD OR A ROD and EITHER ARMOR OR A CIRCLET.
    If you pick up one of a pair (say, a sword) while holding the other (say, a
    rod), you'll lose the one you already had. If you clear the mini-game and get
    the princess ending, you'll get the costume title Dragon Buster for Luke. If
    you're on a second or later playthrough, you'll also get the costume title
    Dragon Buster?.

    charge on in. Shoot Mieu Fire up the conveyor belt to hit the switch on the
    right, and you'll be able to enter. Bounce Mieu Fire off the different colored
    rock on the wall to your left to hit the next switch. Go left at the fork and
    use the rock to bounce Mieu Fire up and activate the switch above you for a
    chest with a Specific inside. Continue into the cave.
    
    Go forward for a scene. Hit the switch across the way with Mieu Fire to free
    the cheagle. Collect a Wing Bottle and a Nectar Bottle from the chests nearby,
    and then use the reflective rock on the wall to bounce Mieu Fire into the next
    switch. Head right.
    
    The switch in this area is too high to just point and shoot, but thankfully the
    reflective rock on the wall to the right will do the trick. Hit it and move on.
    In the next area, you'll have to bounce Mieu Fire off the rock on the left,
    into the rock on the right, and into the switch.
    
    At the next fork, head right. Pick up the Red Chamomile and Cowboy Hat from the
    chests by the save point. Use Mieu Fire to free the cheagle across the ravine.
    He's stuck, so go back to the fork and turn left for a scene. Aim Mieu Fire at
    the first torch on the right. Bounce it off the reflective walls, through the
    other torches, and into the switch. The machine will clear a path for a
    cheagle, and you'll be introduced to six Ogre Replicas. If you run into them,
    you'll face all six back to back. They're more difficult than the other
    monsters in the area, but not terrible.
    
    We're done here, so depart and make your way to the Cheagle Woods. You can use
    Mieu Fire 2 to pick up some Gald here if you like (cross the river on the
    fallen tree and go right at the fork). Meet the Cheagle Elder in the cheagles'
    big tree to get the Holy Seal and Dark Seal.

    [BSM03] Blacksmith
    ------------------
    Part 3/3
    Location: Sheridan
    Start: clear Mt. Zaleho the second time
    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: complete part 2
    
    Talk to the guy in the room on the left side of the Weapons/Item shop again.
    This time, he needs Libavius Ore, Sacred Tree, and Naevimetal. Equipping the
    Natalia's Labyrinth Princess title will help you get the first two, and
    Adventurous Princess will help with the last one. They can be found here:
    
    Libavius Ore: Search Point 16
    Sacred Tree: Search Point 11
    Naevimetal: Search Point 6
    
    If you have the Adventurous Princess title, you should have already found all
    the Search Points, so you can just open your world map and it'll show you right
    where they are. You can even jump right to them with the autopilot function.
    Got everything? Return to Sheridan. Two of the items this time, the sword and
    the armor, are unique to the sidequest, so if you're going for collector's book
    completion, you'll want to choose one this playthrough and the other the next.
    I think the armor is the better of the two, so I chose the sword the first time
    and the armor the second, but it's up to you how you'd like to do it.
    
    Sword: Full Metal Edge
    Bow: Full Metal Fang
    Armor: Golden Armor

    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: complete part 2
    
    You'll find a sword outside of the large mansion in the deepest part of the
    Isle of Feres. (You may need to go into the mansion and back out to get it to
    appear if you want to do this directly after viewing the scene there.
    Coincidentally, if you go up the stairs inside, you can climb a ladder to the
    roof and pick up some Persian Boots and an Hourglass.) Examine the sword to
    take on the final Sword Dancer fight. If you like Sunlight Chambers, you can
    steal one from him. Defeat him to get Ultimatus.

    On the west side of Engeve, talk to the guy hoeing a small field. Go east then
    and up the path through the market area on the left of Rose's house. It'll take
    you behind her house. Go into the door there to enter the storage shed. Talk to
    the person there. If you already have Natalia's Adventurous Princess title,
    you'll have already gotten all the seeds. If not, they're located in various
    search points around the world. Check out Cyllya's world map for their
    locations. When you have them all, talk to the man in the storage shed and then
    return to the guy working in the field. Guy will earn the title Hard Worker.

    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: none
    
    Talk to Aston in the meeting hall. He needs a total of one million Gald. Pay
    what you can when you can. (I used the game notes function on my 3DS to keep
    track of how much I'd paid. If you're playing the PS2 version, it might not be
    a bad idea to keep a piece of paper in the game case or something.) When you
    complete the payments, you'll need to rest at the inn five times to see the
    bridge completed and gain the Financial Investor title for Luke.

    ------------------------
    [CTW05] Catalyst Weapons
    ------------------------
    Part 5/6
    Location: Eldrant
    Start: Luke obtains the title Swordsman of Lorelei
    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: complete part 1, complete the Sorcerer's Ring quest
    
    This one's a bit lengthy and kind of confusing, so bear with me here, and I'll
    try to walk you through it to the best of my ability. Ready? Here we go.
    
    Start by going into the building right ahead of the area with the stairs where
    Luke got the Swordsman of Lorelei title. Head up the first set of stairs. See
    those spinny orb things? You'll find them throughout the area, and you can use
    Mieu Fire, Attack, and Wing to hit them and get treasure (the first one, for
    example, will net you a nice capacity core. If you turn the block below the
    other one and bounce Mieu Fire off of it, you'll open a door that will let you
    get some Fonic Gloves later). When you're ready, go up the second set and
    through the door on the left.
    
    Down the stairs and into a room with a ton of ladders. The pillars have yellow
    glyphs on them; hitting them with Mieu Attack will knock the pillars over. Hit
    the pillar at the foot of the stairs from the right, and it will fall to the
    left. Whack the other pillar from the bottom so that it falls up and lands
    perpendicular to the other one. Leave the room via the doorway to the north.
    
    Note the two enemies on the main floor of this room. By killing them (as in
    hitting the final blow) with a light elemental arte or a dark elemental arte,
    you can get a Light Fonstone and a Shadow Fonstone respectively. You'll need
    one of each. To ensure that it works, control the casters manually (Tear and
    Anise have several light and dark artes for this) and set the other characters
    to guarding via the battle commands if you have to. I let them weaken the
    enemies first to speed things up a little before I told them to guard.
    
    Got them? Go up to the passage ring looking thing and use the Light Fonstone.
    Good ol' gravity. Head up the stairs to the south and into the room we were
    just in. The game will point out a switch -- DON'T STEP ON IT YET, as it will
    reset the room. If you do by accident, go back and get another Light Fonstone
    and turn the room again. For now, go right and up the ladder in the left
    corner. Hit the spinny orb with Mieu Wing and head back down. If you want to
    get a Fonic Sword, climb the other ladder now and cross the switch. Continue
    along, grab the chest, hit the switch on the way back, and climb down the
    ladder to get back to where we were. Step on the switch I had you skip earlier
    to turn the room again.
    
    Climb the ladder to the left of the doorway. Hit the orb with Mieu Wing if you
    want a Special Gel and then continue through the door we just opened. If you
    opened the door to get the Fonic Gloves, follow the path all the way right and
    out to get them from a treasure chest. If not, or after that, head over to the
    passage ring looking thing in the center of the room. We're now directly above
    where we used the Light Fonstone before. Use your Shadow Fonstone up here to
    turn the room the opposite way. Head south into another room.
    
    There are two blocks up the little staircase and on the left. Rotate them each
    once so that the slanted sides face each other (they should form a V shape).
    Step on the switch in the floor (back to the right and south) to rotate the
    room back to normal. We've been here before. Climb the large staircase and
    stand on the purple glyph on the floor between the two spinny orbs. Note the
    two blocks on the wall. They're the ones we just rotated. Aim Mieu Fire at
    them and get ready, because you're going to have to move quickly now. Ready?
    Fire, switch to Mieu Wing, and Wing up between the two orbs before the fire
    bounces back, which will stop the fire between the two orbs (if the fire hits
    the second orb, the switch will reset). This may take a little practice. When
    you get it, a door down below will open. Head down the stairs and go through
    the door. We made it! Walk forward for a scene. When it's over, examine the
    weapon in front of you to obtain the Unicorn Horn, the final catalyst weapon.
    If you have them all, you'll get another scene. And if you want, there's a
    Treat in a chest off to your left.
    
    Technically speaking, you can head off to the next part of this quest right
    now, but I recommend heading a little further into Eldrant first so you can get
    all the following sidequests in one run without having to run in and out of
    Eldrant all the time. Go back to the room with the passage ring looking machine
    and go up the stairs. There's a Wing Bottle save point there, but before you
    wing it back to the entrance, go up the stairs enough to trigger a scene we'll
    call the point of no return. If you go up the stairs after that scene, you'll
    hit the final boss, so save and head out instead if you'd like to do some more
    sidequests.

    Location: Grand Chokmah
    Start: reach the point of no return in Eldrant
    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: complete parts 1-16 and part 17 with Anise, have the All-Purpose
       Knife and Magical Pouch
    
    Equip Anise's Little Big Chef title. (You'll need to have chosen her to cook at
    Fabre Manor in part 17 of this quest in order to get it.) Enter the Malkuth
    Military Headquarters and speak with Sesemann in the conference room to get the
    title Grand Master Chef for Anise.
    
    (Side note: You can obtain the All-Purpose Knife from an unlisted search point.
    If you've already gotten Natalia's Adventurous Princess title, you should have
    it already. The Magical Pouch comes during the story; when you have to split the
    party during the war, you have to avoid getting into many fights with Jade's
    group in order to get it.)

    [CTW06] Catalyst Weapons
    ------------------------
    Part 6/6
    Location: Nebilim's Crag
    Start: reach the point of no return in Eldrant
    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: complete parts 1-5, complete the Upgraded Flightstones quest
    
    Get ready, because there's a big fight coming up, and saying it isn't easy is
    the understatement of the century. Stock up on healing items; picking up some
    Treats and Specifics at the Desert Oasis isn't a bad idea. When you're ready,
    head to the northwestern part of Sylvana, the continent Keterburg is on. You're
    going north and slightly east of Search Point 15. Break into the blizzard with
    the Albiore and land. There's a mountain in the northwestern corner of the area
    that looks like it's cracked in half. That's where we're headed. Land, save,
    and if you're ready, head on in.
    
    (Side note: If you're playing the PS2 version and want to get the Tactical
    Leader costume title for Luke, you'll have to set your difficulty level to
    Very Hard or Unknown mode before entering, and she's bad enough normally. You
    won't be able to do this on a first playthrough, as those difficulty levels
    aren't available. If you're playing on a 3DS, you can stick with Normal and
    still get the title. Consider yourself lucky.)
    
    Walk forward. Scene. Battle. MAKE SURE you steal the Tutti capacity core from
    her, as it's the best one in the game. I'm no expert on battle strategy, and
    I'm sure others have more involved plans, but here's what advice I can give:
    she'll occasionally move toward the person she's targeting. When she does,
    pause, switch to that character, and get out of there. Free Run is a beautiful
    thing. When she uses the Big Bang mystic arte, there's enough time to pull off
    a Guardian or Magic Block to stop it from more or less murdering at least the
    character you're controlling. Use healing items freely, and just keep at it.
    You'll get there. If all else fails, leave it for a bit and level up before
    coming back. I think my characters were in the upper sixties level-wise when I
    beat her on Normal difficulty. You may want to be at a different level than I
    was -- in part it depends on which AD skills, items, and equipment you have,
    as well as your battle strategy and party members. I've heard some people
    suggest that you be over level seventy. Don't be surprised if it takes a few
    tries to beat her. Her reputation as a tough fight is well-deserved.
    
    When the battle is over, view the ensuing scene and then head for Grand
    Chokmah -- there are a few people you'll need to speak with in order to
    activate the catalyst weapons and finish out this quest.
    
    (Side note: Make sure that none of your characters have any of the catalyst
    weapons equipped at this point. If they do, the scenes below won't trigger.)
    
    Talk to Emperor Peony in his chambers; then leave the palace and watch. You'll
    end up in the Military HQ. Depart for Daath and find Tritheim in the chapel to
    bring this quest to a close. (And if you changed your difficulty level, don't
    forget to put it back.)
    
    From here on out, the catalyst weapons will deal damage according to how many
    enemies each character has killed (that is, the more enemies a given character
    has killed, the stronger his or her catalyst weapon). The maximum amount of
    damage the weapons can deal is 9999.

    [TCL01] Tactical Leader
    -----------------------
    Part 1/1
    Location: Baticul
    Start: reach the point of no return in Eldrant
    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: complete the Catalyst Weapons quest after defeating its boss on
       Very Hard or Unknown mode (PS2) OR complete the Catalyst Weapons quest (3DS)
    
    (Side note: Make sure that none of your characters have any of the catalyst
    weapons equipped. If they do, the scene won't trigger.)
    
    Head for Baticul now and talk to Pere in Duke Fabre's manor to obtain the
    Tactical Leader costume title for Luke.

    Part 4/4
    Location: Grand Chokmah
    Start: reach the point of no return in Eldrant
    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: complete part 3, complete the Catalyst Weapons quest
    
    Go into the Malkuth Military Headquarters for the final scene of this
    sidequest.
    
    ------------------------------
    [ARF01] Abyss Replica Facility
    ------------------------------
    Part 1/1
    Location: Sheridan
    Start: reach the point of no return in Eldrant
    Cutoff: none
    Prerequisites: clear the game, complete the King's Portrait, Upgraded
       Flightstones, Sorcerer's Ring, and Cheagle Rescue quests
    
    (Side note: I'm told there may be a glitch in the 3DS version of the game that
    allows you to start this sidequest on your first playthrough -- the people by
    the ladder indicated below are there, but they're invisible. This did not work
    for someone else who tried it. Feel free to let me know if you have or discover
    any additional information on it.)
    
    Head for Sheridan and go to the northwest area (near the Albiore's garage).
    There are two people by the ladder in the back of the area; approach them for a
    scene. Go to the meeting hall to find Shiba and Peko. Talk to Shiba, and when
    you're ready, speak with him again to be taken into Ortion Cavern. (Once you
    get there and see the scene, note the bridge to the right. If you cross it,
    there's an exit that'll let you go in and out of the cavern right by this
    dungeon.)
    
    The basic premise of this place is that you want to destroy all the fomicry
    machines with Mieu Attack. Shiba will dig holes into new rooms for you, but
    you'll have to pay him. The more you pay him, the less energy he loses per
    opening. Luckily, there are some rooms with pools of water that will heal your
    party and replenish Shiba's energy bar. This bar is shown on your screen along
    with your Gald and the number of machines you've destroyed. If you want to
    leave or change the amount you're paying Shiba, just talk to him.
    
    There's a nice map of this place on GameFAQs, which I highly recommend using.
    I'm hoping to eventually include a walkthrough for this place, but for now, I'm
    sure the rest of the Internet can be of more help to you than I can.

    Prerequisites: complete parts 2-3, complete the Abyss Replica Facility quest
    
    Now that you've gotten the Sunlight Chamber from the Replicantis in the Replica
    Facility, you should have all three items. Return to the Katz on the third
    floor of Keterburg's hotel (two rooms down from the maid by the elevator) to
    get Tear's Monster Collector costume title.

    WAITRESS MINI-GAME TUTORIAL                                             [WTRSG]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ------------
    Instructions
    ------------
    You can play the waitress mini-game on the second floor of the hotel in
    Keterburg. It's fairly straightforward: customers come in and sit down. Their
    orders appear for a second or two each, and then you have to give the orders to
    the kitchen by pressing the corresponding buttons from the list that appears.
    Then, go to each customer and press the button that corresponds to his or her
    order to deliver it.
    
    If you get it right, they'll say something along the lines of "Thank you!" or
    "This looks delicious!" If you try to give them something you didn't get from
    the kitchen, they'll say "You don't have that!" If you give them the wrong
    order, they'll say something like "I didn't order this!" If you get either of
    the last two responses, you won't be able to talk to them again and give them
    the correct order, so you only get one chance per person (good thing this isn't
    how real life works). Getting an order incorrect will also dock your pay.
    
    With each level, you'll get more customers and be able to earn more Gald.
    
    Level 1: 3 customers, up to 400 Gald
    Level 2: 4 customers, up to 800 Gald
    Level 3: 5 customers, up to 1300 Gald
    Level 4: 6 customers, up to 2200 Gald
    Level 5: 8 customers, up to 4500 Gald
    
    When you do the competition with the other waitress (listed above as part 13 of
    the Master Chefs sidequest), you'll have an additional level to complete, which
    has the same numbers as level 5.
    
    --------
    Strategy
    --------
    The customers will always give their choices in the same order. Below is a
    rough diagram of the restaurant (the large circles are tables and the little
    squares are armchairs). The numbers represent the order in which the customers
    speak.
    
                 -  -                                   _
           1  /        \                               |_|
             |          | 4                         _       _
             |          |                         3|_|     |_|8
              \        /                                _
                 -  -                                  |_|
    
                        -  -                               _
                  6  /        \  2                       7|_|
                    |          |                       _       _
                    |          |                      |_|     |_|
                     \        /                            _
                        -  -                              |_|5
    
    The easiest way I've found is make a list of the orders on a piece of paper. I
    abbreviate the orders with the first letter of each word -- fortunately, all of
    them are unique. For example, if I'm on level 1 and the customers order Amango
    Tea, Curry Rice, and Cream Stew, I write AT, CR, and CS. Then I input the
    corresponding buttons at the kitchen and deliver the items in the order I wrote
    them down. The person sitting in position 1 gets the Amango Tea, position 2
    gets Curry Rice, and position 3 gets Cream Stew.
    
    Obviously, this is just one way to do it, but I find it works pretty well.
