    =====================  W A L K T H R O U G H  ==========================
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    After the opening scene and selecting your name, you’ll find yourself in
    an empty street. There will be a voice that will ask you to go towards him.
    Find a glowing silhouette of a person in the street ahead and approach him
    to allow Walter to manifest. After the brief conversation, run straight
    ahead to another silhouette in front of the broken statue head to meet
    Jonathan.
    
    After the opening sequence, you’ll wake up from your nap in Lake Mikado.
    Your friend Issachar will greet you and will mention something about the
    Gauntlet Rite. The game will take you to the castle town and Issachar will
    attempt to ask a luxoror for directions. After the conversation, you’ll
    have the option to select your destination. 
    The rite is being held in Mikado Castle. However, you can check the other
    locations to speak with the townspeople and learn more of the back story if
    you want. Mikado Castle has three locations. You may want to go to the
    Aquila Statue Plaza to progress with the story.
    During the ceremony, you’ll get your turn in the rite and as expected,
    the gauntlet will choose you. The head of the samurai, Sir Hope will escort
    you out of the plaza and to your quarters. Here, you’ll fall asleep as
    part of the story. 
    
    When you wake up, a fellow Samurai named Walter will talk to you. He’ll
    mention to head to the Naraku Entranceway to start the training. The shops
    won’t be open for now and they’ll be marked as “???”for the
    meantime. You can explore the areas outside the Aquila Statue Plaza if you
    want. Otherwise, select Naraku Entranceway to continue. 
    
    Here you’ll meet the other apprentices. Once Hope arrives, he’ll brief
    you of your current mission and receive basic supplies and stipends.
    You’ll get 300 macca and Healing Water x5. After this, you can save your
    macca or check the newly opened shops (Q’s Blacksmith and B’s
    Apothecary). Your money won’t be enough to get you some new gears and
    you’ll only be able to afford a few sundries. When ready, head to the
    Naraku Entrance.
    
    
    ---------------------
    -==Naraku Entrance==-
    ---------------------
    
    A few steps away lies a couple of boards that you can read. You can also
    interact at the edge of the ledge then press the down arrow key to jump
    down to the lower floor. Head towards the door and the gauntlet will
    display Burroughs, your gauntlet’s navigational AI. She’ll offer to
    explain how to use her controls and the menu. You can go ahead with the
    tutorial or skip it. Once you’ve unlocked the menu, save your game first.
    
    Proceed through the door and you’ll use the gauntlet to perform an area
    scan. During this event, you’ll automatically start your first quest. 
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    +++++ Training Exercise I ++++
    Client: Hope
    Reward: 150 Macca
    Task: Slay some demons
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Continue inside and find some demons. Remember that once you see them in
    range, prepare to attack them to initiate a pre-emptive strike in your
    favor. As discussed in the basics section of the guide, hitting the
    enemy’s weakness will give you an extra turn. In this area, the Slimes
    are weak to physical attacks. Since you’re battling alone, it will be
    imperative to attack them first especially when they’re together with
    other demons. 
    
    After your first fight, your character will level up. You’ll have to
    distribute the stat points to any of your stats. Once done allocating,
    you’ll also gain App Points which you can use to unlock Burroughs’
    locked pre-programmed functions. You’ll earn App points whenever you
    level up.  
    
    Also, after your first battle, Training Exercise I quest will be completed
    and you’ll get your reward. Hope will then ask you to commune with
    demons. This is when your second quest will start.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    ////Training Exercise II////
    Client: Hope
    Reward: 150 Macca
    Task: Recruit 3 demons into your party
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Also, Burroughs’ Scout function will become available. You can use this
    to recruit demons you encounter and add them to your party. Find a next
    demon and engage it in battle. Use the “Talk” function in your battle
    menu. The demon will ask a series of questions. Depending on your responses
    and selections, you can satisfy its requirements and convince it to join
    you. Choosing the wrong responsesor refusing its demands may give it a free
    turn to attack.
    
    In addition to answering the questions correctly, a demon will also ask
    for additional compensation such as items in your possession, a bit of your
    HP or even the life of one of your allied demons. Take note that demons
    have their own personalities; the answer that worked on one demon may not
    work on the same demontype. Remember that negotiations aren’t always
    successful. There will times that the demons you’re negotiating with will
    leave the fight after getting what it wanted. 
    
    Remember to save often. You can always go back to your barracks to rest and
    fully replenish your party’s HP and MP. I suggest grinding a few levels
    so you can save up macca for better gear and have your demons level up as
    well. Once you collect three demons, the quest will be complete. 
    
    As your demons level up, you’ll also be able to inherit “Whispered
    Skills”. These are skills that your allied demons may transfer to you and
    use them as your own. If a demon whispers a skill that you already know, it
    will strengthen the skill. Demons can only whisper once but you can choose
    multiple skills as long as you slots available. 
    
    After completing the second exercise, you’ll get your rewards and the
    final exercise will begin. You’ll now have to find a valuable item in
    Naraku’s 2nd Stratum. 
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    ////Final Training Exercise////
    Client: Hope
    Reward: 500 Macca
    Task: Obtain the valuable item and return to Aquila Plaza.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    The Mapper app will be available now. You must purchase it to enable it’s
    function. Now with the map handy, explore the 1st Stratum and collect as
    many relics / treasures as you can. Once you’ve found the way leading to
    the 2nd Stratum, keep exploring the area until you find a sign that
    instructs you to look up and a ledge nearby. This ledge leads to a treasure
    chest with the item you need to take to complete the quest and a red demon
    form guarding it. 
    
    If your party is at least LV4 or above, you should be able to deal against
    them with ease. This group is weak against wind / force attacks. The
    fairy-type demon Napaea has this skill called Zan that can be helpful in
    this battle. If not, LhamDearg’s Critical Wave will be a good substitute.
    Be careful of their Dream Fist attack as they can deal heavy damage.
    Napaea’s Dia healing skill will serve you well in this battle in addition
    to her Zan attack. 
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    ////To The Roof////
    Client: Burroughs
    Reward: 0 Macca
    Task: Go to the rooftop
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    After wrapping things up with the training, you'll be given this very 
    short story quest. From the Aquila Statue Plaza, select the "Meeting Spot"
    location and watch the scene. After that, you'll retire for the night in 
    your barracks and have a similar dream that you had earlier. The next 
    morning, head to the Tavern to continue with the story. 
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    ///To My Fellow Samurai///
    Client: Navarre
    Reward: 100 Macca
    Task: Complete three quests and return to the tavern
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    
    Upon arriving at the tavern, talk with K to learn more about your next
    mission. He'll also introduce you to Challenge Quests, which are basically
    the games' sidequests. During this conversation, Burroughs will scan the
    blackboard and register three challenge quests for you.
    
    The following challenge quests below can be completed in one-go. You don't
    need to deliver the lichen and gryphon talons immediately upon collecting
    them. 
    
    **Tip: Some (delivery) challenge quests can be turned over repeatedly for
    diminishing rewards.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    ==A Missing Fellow Samurai==
    Client: Name withheld
    Reward: 1000 macca
    Task: Find the missing Navarre
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    After completing the previous tasks and returning to the tavern, an
    unfamiliar samurai will comment about your performance but at the same
    time, deliver dire news. Navarre is missing and you have to return to
    Naraku again to find him. This will be registered as your next main quest. 
    
    **Tip: Make sure at least one of your demons knows the Posumudi Skill.
    Naraku’s 3rd Stratum, which you’ll explore next has some poisoned
    areas. If you don’t have a demon that has this skill or for some reason
    unable to fuse one, drop by the apothecary and buy some Detox Solution. 
    
    After resting, return to Naraku and breeze through the 1st and 2nd Strata
    to conserve your HP and MP. Before going down to the 3rd Stratum, make sure
    you save and bring at least one demon that can use fire attacks (Agi). It
    will be useful to the upcoming battle. When ready, go downstairs to the
    next level. 
    
    Upon reaching the third Stratum, a hooded man will confront you and throw
    two Nagas to fight you. 
    
    ###########################
    LV10 Naga x2=
    Fire: Weak
    Ice: Null
    Elec, Light and Dark: Resist
    ###########################
    
    The enemies will act first and will use Tarukaja to increase their attacks.
    Concentrate your attacks on one target at a time. This battle will be a
    breeze if you have more than one demon that can use agi. If you have
    acquired a Maragi Stone, you can use it in this battle as well. It will
    further help your party if you have demons that can use debuffs and buffs
    as well. 
    
    After the battle, you can now freely explore the floor. Go past the door
    and engage the demon ahead. Go through a small crawlspace to find a chest
    containing a Detox Solution. Exit then head east. You’ll encounter Walter
    along the way. There’s another crawlspace here but don’t go there since
    there’s a wormwood blocking the path and you can only destroy it from the
    other side. 
    
    Head north instead and pass through the poisoned corridor. Continue until
    you reach the intersection then turn west to find a chest containing a Dies
    Irae sword. If you haven’t upgraded your sword yet, equip this one
    immediately. Continue to the east this time and remove the poison and heal
    up before continuing. 
    
    In another intersection to the east, go north and climb the ledge to find a
    medicine. Next, head south through the door. Destroy the wormwood to clear
    up the path to the crawlspace you saw earlier. This will serve as your
    alternate route around the poisoned corridor. Climb up the ledge to get
    more items then backtrack to the north.
    
    **Tip: Before heading further north past the intersection, swap any demons
    in your combat party that has weakness to ice and equip ones with fire and
    elec attacks. 
    Proceed and you’ll encounter the hooded man again. This time, he’ll
    throw a Wendigo for you to fight with.
    
    ###########################
    LV10 Wendigo
    Weak: Fire, Elec
    Null: Ice
    Resist: Force, Light, Dark
    ###########################
    
    If you followed the tip earlier, then you shouldn’t worry about the
    Wendigo getting free turns whenever its Mabufu attack hits your party.
    Exploit its weakness against fire and elec, coupled with buffs and debuffs
    you may have. Keep your party healthy at all times while continuing
    attacking it. 
    After taking the Wendigo out, the hooded man will send a horde of Wendigos
    and Nagas to your party. Fortunately, your fellow Samurai will arrive just
    in time to lend you a hand. 
    
    ###########################
    LV10 DDS Horde
    Weak: Fire, Elec
    Null: Ice
    Resist: Force, Light, Dark
    ###########################
    
    Your allies can’t be controlled and the horde will have two turns per
    round. It will help using fire and elec skills that hit all enemies like
    Maragi and Mazio. Doing so will deal multiple damage to the horde and give
    you a free turn at least. If you don’t have such skills, you can attack
    using basic fire and elec skills such as Agi or Zio. Nonetheless, if you
    didn’t have problems taking out the Nagas and lone Wendigo earlier, then
    you should be able to manage against the horde. 
    
    After the battle, you’ll have a conversation with the other samurai. They
    will join you afterward and will be able to assist you in battle. Heal up
    and save your game then proceed deeper. You’ll encounter a suspicious
    samurai which will warn you about a portal. As you get near the portal,
    more demons will simultaneously manifest so engage one and take it out to
    clear the area. When ready, enter the portal. 
    
    -------------------
    -==Naraku Domain==-
    -------------------
    
    If you’re party is low in HP and MP and you’re also worried about your
    supplies, relax; there’s a safe spot in this domain further on. After
    discovering that you can’t go back to where you came from, you’ll have
    no choice but to explore the domain further in. There’s an exit to the
    northeast corner though it will just bring you back to the 3rd Stratum. 
    
    Go past the exit and head south. You’ll encounter the ghastly girl for
    the second time along the way. Continue forth and you’ll find a door.
    Approach it and a strange man will make his appearance. Head inside the
    room ahead to have your HP and MP fully replenished. You can come back to
    him as many times as needed.
    
    **Tip: This may be a great time to grind and scout the demons in the area.
    Use this chance to fuse more demons and update your compendium as well. 
    
    When you think you’re ready, heal up and proceed to the southwestern
    corner of the map to find another door. This leads to the domain boss.
    Before entering, make sure to have a demon that can heal poison and restore
    your party’s health. For offense, bring demons that have fire attacks and
    of course, buffs if you can. 
    
    **Tip: The best support demon you can get at the moment is LeananSidhe. Try
    grinding to LV11 to reach the required level to summon her. By default, she
    has Media, a skill that heals all allies. Fuse her with another demon that
    has Posumudi to keep your party afloat in the next boss battle. In the
    other hand, a trained Apsaras will do the job as well. 
    
    
    ###########################
    =Alraune LV11=
    Weak: Fire
    Resist: Gun, Light, Dark
    ###########################
    
    The boss attacks twice per round and will use Poison Breath often, which
    affects everyone in your party and has the chance to get poisoned. If you
    have LeananSidhe, have her spam Media whenever you need and use Posumudi to
    keep your party in top shape. Otherwise, you’ll have to resort to Detox
    Solutions but your supply will be very limited for a prolonged battle. 
    
    It’s Dorn Gift attack deals high physical damage so be careful not to be
    caught off guard especially when your demons and your character is below
    half of their HP. It’s weak to fire attacks so use this chance to exploit
    its weakness and deal bonus damage. Use buffs and debuffs as well to
    mitigate the damage or increase your damage dealt to the boss.
    
    After the battle, the domain will disappear and the group will be taken
    back to Naraku’s 3rd Stratum. The quest wil be complete as well. You have
    to walk all the way back outside and if you’re poisoned from the last
    battle, the status will still carry over. Heal up then exit the labyrinth
    then take a rest in the barracks. 
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    ////Let’s Eat Breakfast////
    Client: Walter
    Reward: 0 macca
    Task: Eat breakfast together
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    The next morning, Walter and Jonathan will barge in and invite you to
    breakfast. Exit to Mikado Castle and go to the Castle City to find the
    Bakery. During the conversation, the baker will mention about Literatures,
    Sabbath and a Black Samurai. After getting your bread, the quest will be
    updated. Now you have to find a fine view where to have your breakfast.
    Head to Lake Mikado next.
    
    After arriving, you’ll find a familiar face - your old friend Issachar.
    After Walter offers him to join you for breakfast, he declines and states
    that he needs to go back to your hometown, Kiccigiorgi. After the
    conversation the quest will be completed. To proceed to the next main
    quest, you have to rest. However, there are two new Challenge quests
    available in the tavern. (Chagrin Slaying Competition, The Cursed Gauntlet)
    You can take them and finish them if you want. Refer to the guide’s
    Challenge Quests section for more information about these quests. 
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    ////Find the Survivors////
    Client: Hope
    Reward: 1000 macca
    Task: Find the survivors
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    To start this quest, you have to rest. Walter and Jonathan will wake you up
    to sneak up to the rooftop where Isabeau is hanging out. After a brief
    conversation, a crimson patch from a distance will lit up in the sky.
    You'll realize that it's from the direction of your home town, Kiccigiorgi.
    Head to the Aquila Plaza for an emergency meeting.
    
    
    As Hope stated, you can go back to the village and have your wounds be
    healed by the samurai healers. This is also a good stage to grind since you
    can always go back to fully replenish your party via allied healers. Follow
    the path and you’ll find a relic. The road will split to two, each with
    its own stationary, red demon forms, indicating they’re special demons
    that you must defeat. Engage the one in the eastern corner first. 
    
    
    ######################
    =LV8 Innocent Horde=
    Weak: Ice, Force, Light
    Resist: Force
    ######################
    
    
    After defeating the horde, destroy the wormwood behind it and continue to
    the next area to find some survivors. Heal up if you want then defeat the
    next horde blocking the path.
    
    ######################
    =LV8 Element Horde=
    Resist: Fire, Ice, Elec, Force
    Null: Light, Dark
    ######################
    
    
    This horde has no weaknesses and they have two turns. It will be good to
    rely heavily on physical attacks when facing them. Heal your party as
    necessary and use buffs/debuffs to gain an upper hand in battle. 
    
    Proceed to the next intersection in the path. Head to the east to find a
    lone survivor getting attacked by a special demon called Strix. 
    
    ######################
    =LV12 Strix=
    Weak: Gun, Elec
    Resist: Light, Dark
    Repel: Ice
    ######################
    
    This demon has two turns per round but her attacks aren’t that
    threatening to the party. Just attack its weaknesses and it will go down in
    no time. 
    
    Proceed to the western path this time, across where you rescued the last
    survivor. Engage the next Innocent Horde there and clear the path. Proceed
    to the next area to find two more survivors. After rescuing them, Hope will
    send a message regarding the source of the disaster and the most likely
    culprit. The quest will be updated as well. 
    
    From the intersection, you’ll find two paths leading south. The one to
    the east is blocked by wormwood so you have to proceed through the western
    path. Cut through more wormwoods until the path turns. Don’t forget to
    pick up the relic along the way. You’ll find a ledge where you can jump
    off but ignore it for now. Continue forth and you’ll find a chest along
    the way containing a Healing Water. Go back to the ledge and jump down to
    find a chest containing a Revival Leaf. 
    
    Backtrack again to the main path and continue east past the ledge to find
    Issachar. After a short conversation, you’ll have to fight him. 
    
    ######################
    =LV13 Issachar=
    Resist: Dark, Light, Poison, Panic, Sleep, Bind, Resist
    Null: Lost
    ######################
    
    Issachar doesn’t have any weaknesses and will use Critical Wave often.
    Issachar has two turns but you can make him lost his chance to act for the
    first time by answering “I am a Casualry” when he asks you during the
    battle. 
    
    Just have a demon with Media in your combat party to heal up your team as
    necessary. Use buffs and debuffs to gain a upper hand in this battle. This
    shouldn’t be a challenging fight since his HP is only around 560.
    After the battle, the quest will be updated. Continue to the east then
    follow the path north to find the Black Samurai. After a brief
    conversation, the Black Samurai will leave and will pit you against a horde
    of demons. After the scene with the old man, he’ll instruct you to see
    the girl by heading east (right) from your initial position. Head to that
    direction to find the girl from before. You’ll wake up from that trance
    and you’ll find yourself with your friends again. Hope will then ask you
    to report back to the forest entrance. Your quest will be completed
    afterward.

    ////Capture the Black Samurai////
    Client: Hugo
    Reward: 4000 macca
    Task: Capture the Black Samurai
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    As you’re ordered to return to the castle, you’ll have another dream.
    The next day, Hope will inform you to assemble in Aquila Plaza. Before
    going there, you may want to visit the Blacksmith and Apothecary to sell
    the relics and to resupply if needed. Once ready, head to the Emergency
    Meeting Ground to proceed with the story.
    
    After the briefing with Hugo and Gabby, you’ll have to head to K’s
    tavern to start with the main quest and pick up some Challenge Quests as
    well. 
    
    Before proceeding with the long, main quest, check your gauntlet to find
    two more challenge quests (I want a Classy Down Quilt, Slaying the Dragon
    of the Lake, Dance of the Dead) Refer to the Challenge quest section of
    this guide for the individual walkthroughs of these side quests. 
    
    **Tip: The Dance of the Dead challenge quest will be quite troublesome in
    your current level. You may want to try it after finishing the lengthy main
    quest.
    
    ----------------------------
    -== Naraku – 4th Stratum ==-
    ----------------------------
    
    Head to Naraku and skip through the first and second levels. Upon reaching
    the third Stratum, you can take the alternate route to the east through a
    crawlspace to avoid going through the poisoned corridor. Make your way to
    the northwestern path of the 3rd level to meet up with the master samurais
    guarding the place. They’ll then allow you to go deeper in the labyrinth.
    
    There are new demons that you can scout and fuse here. The place also has
    different elevations which will require you to use the ladders. Refer to
    the map to find the relics in the area. Make your way to the northeast
    ledge to find a Red Earring. Continue down south through a narrow bridge.
    Be prepared though since three demons will ambush you in the front and
    back. 
    After crossing the first bridge, head to the southeast through a waterfall
    to find another chest ahead containing The Key to Naraku.Now backtrack a
    bit then jump to the west over the broken bridge. Head to the north first
    to find a ledge with a chest containing a Bufula Stone. From there, head
    south to reach the next level. 
    
    
    ----------------------------
    -==Naraku – 5th Stratum==-
    ----------------------------
    
    
    Run through the straight path until you reach a door. Pick up the relic to
    the left and open the chest to the right to find a Revival Leaf. Now before
    opening the door, get your toughest demons and carry at least one with
    Media and Bufu. To make the battle easier as well, it will help bringing in
    demons with buff skills. There’s a boss fight in the door ahead and
    you’ll need as much help as you can get. 
    
    
    ######################
    =LV13 Minotaur=
    Weak: Ice
    Null: Fire, Light, Dark, :pst
    Resist: Poison, Panic, Sleep, Bind, Sick
    ######################
    
    This boss has over 2700 HP which will make this battle last a lot longer.
    Don’t let your guard down since it also has three press turn icons.
    Fortunately, it has a weakness: Ice. Use ice attacks and items to gain as
    many free turns as you can. This boss will use War Cry to lower your
    party’s attack and defense then follow up with a multi-hit, all-party
    attack called Labrys Strike. 
    
    During the battle, the Minotaur will ask you questions. Depending on your
    answers, you can gain an upper hand in the battle. 
    
    First question: “We are determined to win” (increases your attack)
    
    Second question: “Indeed not” (lowers the enemy’s accuracy)
    
    Near the end of the battle, the Minotaur will start using Oni-Kagura which
    can deals massive damage and can instantly take out low HP demons you have.
    Continue with the assault and you should be able to outlast him in battle. 
    There will be two paths available. Take the western arc as it contains
    several relic spawn points. Continue to the middle north and take the
    ladder down to the next area. 
    
    -----------------------------------------
    -==Naraku – Excavation Worker Quarters==-
    -----------------------------------------
    
    This area has several treasure chests. From the ladder, check the small
    room past the sign to find a red chest with Dx Incense. Continue forth and
    an event will take place. Here you’ll find a Bruce Gun which will be
    added to your combat menu. It will be loaded with FMJ rounds. There will be
    two chests in small alcoves nearby. Loot the chests nearby to get a Patra
    Stone and Light Grimoire. 
    
    Continue to the next alcove to find an Ag Incense. Another event will take
    place as you walk further south and the group will find themselves in the
    Sky Terminal. This will allow you to travel instantly to Naraku and Aquila
    plaza. Very convenient! Name the terminal with whatever you want and the
    link will be completely established. You can now use it to return to the
    surface to rest and resupply. A new quest will be added as well though this
    will a long, ongoing one as it requires you to find all terminals in
    Naraku. 
    
    It will be a good time to upgrade your equipment as well since the shops
    will have new inventory. There are two new challenge quests (Missing Child
    Search, A Drunkard’s Best Friend) that you can register in your gauntlet
    by looking at the tavern blackboard. These two can be completed now if you
    want. 
    
    When ready, grab the Lu Incense from the alcove in front of the terminal.
    Head further south and exit through the door to reach the next area.
    
    
    --------------------------------------
    -== Naraku – Temporary Scaffolding ==-
    --------------------------------------
    
    Proceed and Stephen will appear before you again. Here, the DDS or Digital
    Demon Service will be enabled. This will allow you to connect with other
    demon summoners via Streetpass. You can exchange demons attached to cards
    and exchange it with other SMT players. Attached demons via DDS may gain
    levels or come back with items. If another user receives the card, the DDS
    Skill that corresponds the number of received cards can be used in battle.
    To activate this, open the menu and select Burroughs Streetpass. 
    
    Continue down the ramp to get a Revival Bead from the chest. This is a
    straightforward path so just follow the ramps and pick up any relics along
    the way until you reach the elevator. Take the elevator for a scene.
    
    --------------------------------------
    -==Naraku – 1st Observation Platform==-
    --------------------------------------
    
    Once you reach a new area, Burroughs will warn you about a strong demon
    nearby. That indicates a boss fight ahead. It will be a good idea to avoid
    unnecessary battles for now and just collect the chests along the way.
    There are only two chests here containing a Chakra Drop to the west and a
    Zanma Stone to the right. Before heading to the exit, you have to prepare
    for a boss fight. 
    
    
    ######################
    =LV15 Medusa=
    Weak: Force
    Resist: Gun, All status ailments
    Drain: Elec
    Null: Light, Dark, Lost
    ######################
    
    
    Best prepare demons with resistance against Elec attacks and those who can
    use Force attacks. As usual, having demons with healing, buffs and debuffs
    is recommended to win this battle. This boss has three turns and will use
    Zionga, a more powerful form of Zio. She can also use Tathlum Shot which
    can cause over 100 damage. Her Rapid Needle and Snake’s Fangs doesn’t
    deal that much damage but can hit everybody in your party. Her life is
    around 2800 so this battle will be probably as tough as Minotaur. 
    Like Minotaur, there will be two instances that Medusa will chat with you
    in the middle of battle. Answer her correctly and the odds of the battle
    will tip to your favor.
    
    First question: “Indeed, they’re beautiful” (Decreased attack)
    
    2nd:  Give her a side glance. (Defense decreased)
    
    Don’t let up on your attacks and she’ll eventually fall. 
    After the battle, continue downstairs to the next elevator. After the scene
    and getting out of the building, a new mission will be available to you. At
    this point, you’ll have three active Main Quests that overlap each other
    and go hand-in-hand. 
    
    Please follow the walkthrough for "Find the Military Base" for the
    continuation of this main quest:

    find-the-military-base
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------
    -==After completing Find the Military Base==-
    ----------------------------------------------
    
    
    You’ll continue in this main quest after completing “Find the Military
    Base” and activating the terminal in Kasumigaseki. For now, head back to
    Mikado and use the barracks to heal everybody. Next, head to K’s tavern
    to receive some new challenge quests.(Relic Recovery: Small Fridge, PC,
    Power Cable and Wind Turbine)
    
    You can also drop by the Hunter Association in Ueno and accept some new
    challenge quests. These quests are probably too much for you at this point
    so they may have to wait until you’re at least LV30. (The Secret to
    Durable Clothing, Samurai and Hunters United and Hunter Tournament
    Prelims).  Please consult the Challenge Quests section of my online guide 
    for the individual walkthroughs of these sidequests. (check the link
    at the top of this guide)
    
    When you’re ready to proceed, head north of Sakura-dori/ Tokyo Station
    area past the guide NPC in the city map. Enter the marker there to find a
    hunter that will help you cross the river to the new area for 500 macca. 
    
    
    ----------------
    -== Shinjuku ==-
    ----------------
    
    In the first intersection to the west, past the poisonous swap is a tunnel
    that leads to Ikebukuro region. There’s nothing much you can do there at
    the moment but there’s a chest to the northwest containing a Bead. The
    only accessible area is through a group of buildings to the southwest of
    the tunnel but you can’t proceed anywhere at this point of the game. 
    
    In Shinjuku, keep heading west past the tunnel across the poisonous swamp
    until you reach the other side of the city. There are demon domains here
    but don’t be fooled; the bosses of these domains are WAY too high for
    your current level. (Unless you’ve been grinding with DLC challenge
    quests)
    
    You can explore the vast Shinjuku area and grab some items and relics along
    the way.
    
    ++ Relics spawn points: Park Tower, Yoyogi Stadium, Nakano Building
    
    ++ Items: Chakra Pot, chest in the southwest corner
    Bead Chain, chest northwest, past the poisonous swamp
    
    ++ Demon Domains: Yoroi Shrine
    
    Further south are more locations of interests. However, be warned that the
    demons here can be too much to handle if your current level. 
    
    ++ Relic points: 4 Towers
    ++ Domains: Cameron Building
    
    Once ready, make your way to the south and turn east in the 4th
    intersection. You’ll get past the Park Tower relic point and you’ll
    find the Shinjuku South Entrance and the Shinjuku National Park. The latter
    is not your objective yet but you can get a couple of items there. 
    
    --------------------------------------------
    -== Shinjuku National Park – Pond Garden ==-
    --------------------------------------------
    
    This is not your objective yet but you can explore the area to find some
    items and relics. 
    
    ++ Chest, southeast corner: Balm of Rising
    ++ Chest, west: Summon Stone 
    
    -------------------------------
    -==Shinjuku – South Entrance==-
    -------------------------------
    
    This is a large area with lots of relics and treasures to loot. On your way
    in, you’ll find a young girl named Hikaru. She’ll give you a tip to
    check out the Juraku Bookstore in Ikebukuro. This will also update the
    quest and unlock two new apps: Skill Augment and Gift Augment. 
    
    Examine the corpse to the northwest corner of the first area to find a
    Dis-Poison. Head to the east and check the wall to find a vent you can
    climb in. This will lead you to another room with a chest. Open it for a
    Chakra Pot. 
    
    Now head to the middle and enter through the narrow passage. There’s
    another hunter corpse in the northeast corner of the inner area, beside a
    closed grate. Examine it to get a nerve gas. There’s also an elevator in
    the middle though your access is limited for now. Head to the other side of
    the station to find relic and a ladder that will allow you to climb up the
    roof of a small convenience store. Loot a Bead from there. 
    
    Now go back down and go to the southwest of the convenience store to find
    another ladder. Climb it to reach an enclosed area with two chests
    containing a 10-point card and Summon Stone.
    
    Due west of the convenience store is a room that you can enter. Here,
    you’ll find another female hunter which happens to be a friend of Nozomi.
    She’ll ask for your help in taking pics. This will be registered as a new
    challenge quest. (Shelter Inspection) After talking to her, exit this
    immediate area (don’t leave to the city map!) and find the stairs leading
    to Shinjuku’s Underground District. 
    
    
    ------------------------------------
    -==Shinjuku Station - Underground==-
    ------------------------------------
    
    Before doing anything else, go straight up to find a red button. Push it to
    open the gates. To the west lies the elevator that will take you back to
    the surface and to the right is the terminal that’s currently occupied by
    a demon. There are also some new items in the stores here so you may want
    to upgrade your gear and prepare your party before attempting to clear it. 
    
    
    ############
    =LV24: Ose=
    Resist: Dark
    ############
    
    This demon has around 900 HP and has no weaknesses. Its main attack is
    Fatal Sword, which deals 150+ damage to a target. You need to bring out
    high-HP demons as well as those that can increase your party’s defense
    and/or lower the enemy’s attacks. If you have a demon that can innately
    nullify/repel/ absorb physical attacks then by all means use it. Having a
    demon with a skill buff that can repel physical attacks will do as well. 
    
    Defeating this demon will unlock the Shinjuku Terminal and update the main
    quest “Activate All Terminals”. You can now check the tavern in Mikado
    to receive a new challenge quest (Creating Fireproof Clothing). Use this
    chance to conveniently use the barracks and rest up. 
    
    Talk to the man in a black suit to the west of the station to update your
    main quest. Head to the east this time to find the shops and Shinjuku
    Hunter Association. Check the bulletin board to register new quests.
    (Corpse Disposal, Quality Food, Phantom of Madness, Training Battle 1,
    Training Battle 2). Refer to the challenge quests section of this guide for
    more information. 
    
    ** Note: Of all the available Challenge Quests available, Corpse Disposal 
    is very lengthy since it is required for the main plot to continue. 
    
    After completing Corpse Disposal, the main quest will be updated. To
    proceed further to the story, return to the Shinjuku Underground District
    and talk to the Heavily Accented Man for him to open the shutter and give
    you access to the western side of the Shinjuku Underground District. A new
    main quest will become available as well. (The Seat of Government) 
    
    There are also a couple of new Challenge Quests that you need to trigger by
    talking to certain NPCs. (Her Memories, Ikebukuro Free District) Refer to
    the challenge quests section of this guide for more information.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    -==After completing the main quest The Seat of Government==-
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
    From the Government Office Plaza, return to the West Entrance Buildings and
    go through the manhole to the south. Follow the straightforward path until
    you reach the Shinjuku Underground District. You can accept a new quest
    from the Hunter Association (Demon Guarding the Shrine) though it can wait
    since you need to face a LV45 demon for that specific challenge quest. 
    Finish whatever extra business you may have then prepare to move out. From
    Shinjuku, head north to where the poisoned swamp is and enter the tunnel
    leading to Ikebukuro.
    
    ------------
    -==Sugamo==-
    ------------
    
    After exiting the tunnel, hug the rock wall to the north until you run
    across a hole that will allow you to explore the area further north. There
    is a relic spots there and a building that has a demon’s domain at the
    end of the road to the west. The master of this domain is a LV44 Grendel. 
    Defeating it will render a SDF Equipment, which is a valuable relic. Facing
    this strong foe is entirely optional and you can just fight it later once
    your party’s level is near it. If you still haven’t looted the chest to
    the northwest, follow the road to that direction from the other side of the
    rock wall. To proceed with the mission, head to the southwest and follow
    the ramp leading to an entry point. 
    
    --------------------------------
    -==Ikebukuro – Sunshine Front==-
    --------------------------------
    
    Approach the barrier and a woman named Kaga will approach your group. Since
    you have the Jirae Talisman from completing the last main quest, you should
    be able to use it on the barrier. After a brief conversation with her, a
    new main quest will be registered. (Hunting Xi Wangmu)
    For the walkthrough of this quest, please follow the link above. 
    
    
    ------------------------------------------
    ===After completing “Hunting Xi Wangmu”===
    ------------------------------------------
    
    -------------------------------
    -==Ikebukuro – East Entrance==-
    -------------------------------
    
    After defeating Xi Wangmu in the main quest “Hunting Xi Wangmu”, the
    path leading to this area from the Ikebukuro Underground District will
    become open. This is a fairly large area so you’ll have to rely on the
    map to know the locations of the relics and hunters’ corpses for loot.
    There is also a large portion of the area that’s poisoned so you have to
    have a demon that has Amrita or Me Patra to help you cope with it. 
    If you have accepted the challenge quest “Sunset for a Demonnapper”,
    search the room on the western side of the area, south of the stairs
    leading to the station. 
    
    If you have the challenge quest “Ikebukuro Free District”, the spot
    where you can take a photo of the Ikebukuro East Gate is located in the
    middle portion of the map, north of the taxis enclosed in a railing. 
    After looting the area, make your way to the southeast where you’ll find
    the Juraku Bookstore. It currently has a demon’s domain which you need to
    explore and clear. 
    
    
    ------------------------
    -== Juraku Bookstore ==-
    ------------------------
    
    As you run around the domain, you’ll encounter the same horde of Lilim
    demons shortly. They were the same horde that you encountered in the
    Kiccigiorgi Forest mission. 
    
    ###################
    =LV30 Lilim Horde=
    Weak: Ice
    Null: Elec, Light, Dark
    ###################
    
    Pummel these demons with your party-based ice skills like Mabufu/-la/-dyne
    and Ice Breath. You shouldn’t have problems defeating them since their HP
    is only around 1100. 
    
    After defeating the horde, explore the domain further until you reach the
    door that leads to the Black Samurai. After a short dialogue, she’ll
    finally surrender and you’ll finally be able to complete this quest. 
    You’ll be back to Mikado automatically as part of the story. Read through
    the next dialogues and part ways with your friends. Drop by K’s Tavern to
    register new challenge quests. (I’m No Good at Demon Fusion, Training
    Battle 3, Training Battle 4)
    
    To proceed with the story, head to Mikado Castle and select Obelisk Plaza
    to attend the public execution. The next morning, head to the Monastery to
    receive a new main quest. Please refer to Rescue the VIPs for more
    information.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    
    After Burroughs scans the area, the map will be different. The glitchy blue
    forms represent demons so you have to be careful when approaching them.
    There are several locations and items to be collected in the area.
    Northeast of the tower is a chest containing a Chakra Pot.From there, head
    north a bit to find a chest by the river containing a Dx Incense. 
    From the tower, go southeast to find another chest with Balm of Rising at
    the end of a wide highway. Further to the west you’ll find another chest
    containing a Bead. Head further west and you’ll find Ueno Station. Enter
    it and explore the area. 
    
    
    -----------------------------------
    -==Ueno Station – Front Entrance==-
    -----------------------------------
    
    There are several relics in the area that you can gather. There are some
    relics that replenish over time, like the Delivery Door beside the station
    entrance and Ambulance in the far west of the entrance. Beside the Delivery
    Door relic point is a hanging ladder which you can climb to find a relic
    pile near the ledge. Destroy wormwood beside the station entrance as well
    to acquire the Lu Incense from a chest at the end of the path. When ready,
    head downstairs to the station. 
    
    
    -----------------------------------
    -== Ueno Underground District ==-
    -----------------------------------
    
    Upon arriving, you’ll be greeted by a smirking man. This is a safe zone,
    which will provide you relief after battling Medusa and exploring the
    immediate area. There’s a nearby vent leading to Ameyoko Way, the area
    south of the station. Ignore it for now then head west. Save your game and
    prepare for another battle. Beyond the door right beside the vent is the
    terminal but you have to clear the demon’s domain  there.

    This battle will be quick if you have Mazio. The larger Tengu is also weak
    to Ice to use that to exploit their weaknesses and get more turns. This
    horde will often use regular attacks. Just make sure to heal if necessary
    and don’t bring out demons that are weak against force attacks.
    
    After clearing out the station and lifting the domain, the Ueno Station
    will become available. This will also update the main quest “Activate All
    Terminals”. Now you can go back to Mikado instantly. You can also go
    further west and explore the Central Underground District. There’s a
    tavern/bar there that has new Challenge Quests. (Eggs for One Hundred, I
    Want to Make the City Bright) Now is the best time to finish any challenge
    quests you left behind in Mikado. Of the two new challenge quests, you can
    quickly do Eggs for One Hundred then just proceed with the main story since
    you’ll come across the other challenge quest on the way there. You have
    to talk to the Cold Man inside the bar to get a new Main Quest. 
    
    There’s also a black market here weapons, guns and ammo. Talk to the old
    man and type in “Erawan” to gain access to this store. 
    
    To proceed with the story, head to the Hunter Association and talk to the
    Cold Man. Another main quest “Peallaidh Extermination” will be added to
    your list. For the complete walkthrough, that quest's section in this 
    guide.
    
    After completing Peallaidh Extermination and obtaining the boss demon’s
    head, you may want to check the Hunter Association to register two new
    Challenge Quests. (Competition for Blood, Deliver the Film) Between the
    two, you can immediately complete “Deliver the Film”. The other
    challenge quest will require you to defeat certain demons that are
    available outside the Military Base so we’ll get to that along the way.
    Refer to the Challenge Quests section for more information. 
    
    When ready, return to the city map and head east a bit from the Ueno
    Station. Once you find the river, go south to find two markers close to
    each other. You need to go to the lower marker to find a horde of demons
    waiting by the riverside. They’ll ask for Peallaidh’s head. To return
    the favor, they can act as a bridge for you to reach the next area. 
    
    After crossing to the new area, talk to the guide in the street to learn
    where Shinjuku, Tokyo Station and Kasumigaseki are located. The main quest
    takes place to Tokyo Station. Head west past the guide and take the road
    south. You should find a chest containing a Bead. If you head north of the
    guide, you’ll find a relic spawn point in Teito College. 
    
    Follow the main roads to the southeast and you’ll find Tokyo Station. You
    canenter it and just explore the area a bit but you’ll only be limited to
    talking to NPCs. If you head to the southwest portion of the station and
    you’ll be blocked by a Ring of Gaea member. Should you choose to ignore
    this location, continue further to the southwest of the station to find the
    next area.
    
    ----------------------------------
    -==Kasumigaseki – Sakurada Dori==-
    ----------------------------------
    
    This area is wide but small. There are two relic spawn points here and an
    inaccessible chest at the moment. Your main objective is to find a working
    elevator to reach the Counter-Demon Base. The other elevators in the area
    are locked down, except for the one in the middle-left side of the map.
    Don’t forget to get the Bead from the chest to the south as well. 
    
    When checking the elevator to the west, two humans will block your way and
    will attempt to shoo you away. Ignore their warning and you’ll have to

    This battle shouldn’t be that hard since this demon has two elemental
    weaknesses and only have around 1140 HP. It has strong attacks but can only
    hit one target at a time. Avoid using demons weak against elec to avoid
    giving the enemy free turns. 
    
    After taking out the demons, the underlings will leave your party. Activate
    the elevator and head to B1F.

    If you have the challenge quest “Competition for Blood”, this is where
    you’ll encounter Strix demons. Defeat them to get the required number of
    blood for the quest. There’s also a vent you can enter before reaching
    the other elevator. This will take you back to the fenced area in
    Sakurada-dori. There’s a relic spawn point and a chest containing a Balm
    of Rising there. Return to the vent and take the elevator to the next
    floor. 
    
    
    -------------------------------------------
    -==Kasumigaseki –Counter-Demon Base (B2F)==-
    -------------------------------------------
    
    The first room to the west is a terminal but you have to defeat the boss
    demon that created a domain there to be able to use the terminal. For now,
    enter the room to the southwest corner for a short scene. You’ll obtain a
    new gun called Lock Steyr, a Demonica armor set and an ID Card. This will
    update the other main quest “Capture the Black Samurai”.
    
    Once done, use the ID card to open one of the locked doors there to get a
    Chakra Drop. Open the large door to the south next using the ID card.
    You’ll stumble upon the abandoned briefing room of the Counter-Demon
    force. Burroughs will download the data and send it to the monastery. After
    a short scene, this mission will be complete.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    You’ll get this main quest by talking to the Cold Man in Ueno Station’s
    bar. This will be active alongside other main quests available at the
    moment. Head to the terminal and go through the vent beside it to reach
    Ameyoko Way. 
    
    
    -----------------
    -==Ameyoko Way==-
    -----------------
    
    This is just a small area with two relic spawn points that you can find in
    the middle and southeast. There’s also a ledge in the middle, to the east
    that you can climb. You can find a greedy hunter here for the meantime. The
    stairs to the southwest leads back to the Central Underground District so
    just ignore it for now. Go west from the manhole to reach Central Way.
    
    -----------------
    -==Central Way==-
    -----------------
    
    There are several relic points in this area, especially in the eastern side
    of the area. There’s also a Friendly Hunter on the top of the subway
    entrance to the southern part of the area who offers to trade Expanse Meat
    at triple the market price. You should come back and talk to him when you
    have it. 
    
    To the southwest of Central Way lie two wormwoods. There’s a chest behind
    it containing a Bead and a manhole leading back to the Undeground
    District’s inaccessible stairwell which has a chest containing a Summon
    Stone. 
    
    There are multiple relic spawn points here, especially in Central Way’s
    eastern side. One of those spawn points, lead to a demon domain as part of
    the challenge quest I Want to Make the City Bright. Refer to the Challenge
    Quests section for the walkthrough of this sidequest. 
    
    The path to the northeast corner leads back to the Ueno Station Entrance.
    Destroy the wormwood blocking the path so you can easily access Central Way
    from that area. Loot any relics that may have respawned then return back to
    the Underground District. Use the terminal to teleport back to Mikado and
    use the barracks to heal up for free. 
    
    Return to the Underground District and go to the district’s second area
    where the shops are. There’s a path to the southwest leading to the
    Underground Passage. The vent and the stairs here will lead back to the
    same area: Shinobazu Pond. For convenience, enter through the vent first. 
    
    
    --------------------
    -==Shinobazu Pond==-
    --------------------
    There are relic points in the southwest and northeast , along the pond’s
    outer ring. There’s an exit to the middle-north part of the area which
    leads you back to the city map. You can enter another building there
    however there’s no one there yet so you can just ignore that exit for
    now. Continue east of the outer ring to find a chest containing a Chakra
    Pot and ledges where you can jump off. Ignore them for now then check the
    middle path of the pond. 
    
    Jump off from the broken fence so you can hop on the floating platforms.
    Find a ladder in the pagoda’s northwest side and climb it to find a chest
    with a Hawthorn Spear.This is a good weapon to equip since it can hit 1-3
    times and can target all enemies. Plus, it can cause the Sleep status
    ailment as well. However, you should also remember that your pre-emptive
    strike will be a thrust instead of a slash so you have to adjust your
    distance accordingly. There’s a relic on a floating platform to the
    southwest. After getting it, continue to the southeast and destroy the
    wormwoods there to open up the path. 
    
    Your target is located in the small dock with small boats. Before entering
    it, climb up the roof to find a chest containing a Balm of Rising. You can
    take this time to go back to the district to heal up, especially if you
    happen to engage several demons while exploring the whole area. Bring
    demons with sizable HP and primarily those with fire skills. When ready,
    enter the dock to find Peallaidh. Once the battle starts, Peallaidh will
    summon a horde of demons.

    ####################
    
    This horde has no weaknesses so your main attacks should focus on the types
    they’re not strong against. Use elec, fire and force attacks to whittle
    their HP away. Their HP is only around 830 so it shouldn’t take that long
    to eliminate them. They use Mudo and their physical attacks deal multiple
    hits. After taking out the horde, the main boss will appear.

    Its HP is around 1200 only so you can quickly take it down with continuous
    fire attacks. The only attack you should worry is its Axel Claw that deals
    moderate damage to multiple targets. This battle shouldn’t be hard, as
    long as you have 2-3 demons exploiting its weakness and getting free turns.
    The quest will be completed and you’ll obtain Peallaidh’s head. This is
    necessary to proceed with your ongoing main quest, “Find the Military
    Base”.  There will be two new quests in the Hunter’s Association so
    don’t forget to register them in your gauntlet too. (Competition for

    This main quest will be given by the heavily accented man who’s blocking
    the western side of the Shinjuku Underground District. You have to complete
    first the challenge quest “Corpse Disposal”. Once done, head further to
    the underground district’s western side and exit through the stairs
    leading to the Shinjuku Station – West Entrance.

    A few steps away from the stairs is an open door. Enter it to find an
    Ambitious Hunter inside. Talk to him and show him your camera to start a
    new challenge quest.  (Ikebukuro Free District)
    Find a ladder behind the closed subway entrance and climb it to find a
    chest on the roof containing a Balm of Rising. Next, find the open manhole
    in the middle and go through it to find a chest with another Balm of Rising
    inside. Finally, go behind the stairs to the north of the street to find a
    Dx Incense inside a chest.  After clearing the entire area, exit west to
    reach the next area.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------
    -==Shinjuku Station –West Entrance Buildings==-
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    
    This is a very small area with very few loots as well. Do not go through
    the manhole to the south as it will just bring you back to the West
    Entrance Passage. Continue to the west to reach the next area. 
    
    
    ---------------------------------------
    -==Shinjuku- Government Office Plaza==-
    ---------------------------------------
    Both main paths are blocked by wormwood barriers so you have to jump off
    from the broken railings. Let’s start by jumping off from the southern
    railing. Search the southwest corner to find a chest containing a Chainsaw.
    Be careful since there’s a pitfall trap along the way.
    
    After looting the chest, go upstairs to find a hunter corpse. Loot it to
    find a Revival Bead. Continue upstairs until you find two chests containing
    a Chakra Pot and Gold Jet. Now go upstairs and destroy the wormwood barrier
    in the same level where you jumped off. Next, backtrack to the broken
    railings and jump off from the other railing to the north. 
    
    After landing, you can loot a hunter corpse behind to get a Nerve Gas. Go
    upstairs and destroy a wormwood barrier to find a chest behind it. Loot the
    Ag Incense from the chest. Continue upstairs and destroy another wormwood
    barrier. Head to the west this time and go downstairs. 
    
    There’s a relic spawn point in the middle of the street in the middle of
    the street and a hunter corpse behind the bushes to the middle-south. You
    can loot a Revival Bead from it. Finally, go upstairs to the southwest to
    find the last wormwood barrier in the area. Destroy it to clear the path. 
    Save your game and head to the government office building entrance.
    
    You’ll find some men talking to the target demon. After the negotiations
    have broken down, you’ll be given the option to kill the demon or not. If
    you decide to slay the demon, you’ll have to face it in battle.

    fire until it succumbs. 
    
    After defeating the enemy, you’ll obtain the cash reward and the mission
    will be complete. You’ll also obtain the key item Jirae Talisman.

    Task: Slay Xi Wangmu
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    You’ll get this quest after breaking the demonic barrier in Ikebukuro –
    Sunshine Front and after talking to Kaga.
    
    
    --------------------------------
    -==Ikebukuro – Sunshine Front==-
    --------------------------------
    
    Start by collecting the relic in the black car ahead. If you have accepted
    the challenge quest “Ikebukuro Free District”, you should be able to
    climb up the car to take a photo of the Ikebukuro Sun Building. After
    taking the pic, continue to the northwest until you reach the next area. 
    
    
    ------------------------------------
    -==Ikebukuro- 60 Street Crosswalk==-
    ------------------------------------
    
    There are a couple of hunter corpses here where you can loot a Chakra Drop
    and Poison Gas. The blue car also contains a relic. To the southwest
    blockaded portion you’ll find a chest containing a Balm of Rising. After
    collecting the treasures, return to the previous area and jump off from the
    broken concrete wall. 
    
    ----------------------------------------
    -==Ikebukuro – Sunshine Front (lower)==-
    ----------------------------------------
    
    Beware of the purple sludge in the streets since it can poison your
    characters. Explore the area for relics and items. From your landing point,
    head to the northwest to find a chest with an Ag Incense inside. The ladder
    nearby will allow you to climb back up to the flyover. The chest to the
    northeast corner contains a Light Grimoire.
    
    There’s an exit to the southeast leading back to the city map though it
    only leads to a relic spawn point. Xi Wangmu’s domain is located to the
    southeast, where a Ring of Gaea member is standing outside. If you want to
    heal up before facing this demon, you can visit the Ikebukuro Underground
    District and clear the demon domain that’s occupying its terminal. 
    
    Head to the southwest to find a chest containing a Chakra Pot and a relic.
    From there, you can exit to the city map. 
    
    
    ----------------------
    -==Ikebukuro Region==-
    ----------------------
    
    Once in the city map, you can enter the nearby temple to find Hariti. If
    you have the challenge quest “Sunset for a Demonnapper”, this is where
    you can find her and continue the quest later on. Make your way to the west
    and pick up the relic along the way.Go north to find a chest containing a
    Chakra Pot. From there, follow the road east to find the Ikebukuro
    Underground District.
    
    
    ------------------------------------
    -==Ikebukuro Underground District==-
    ------------------------------------
    
    The first thing you’ll notice is that this isn’t a safe zone unlike
    other underground districts. There are a few rooms with NPCs but they
    won’t be of any help. Just go follow the path and go around. There’s a
    room with a Lifeless Woman to the east and she’ll ask you if you’re a
    demon or a human. Either choice will prompt the woman to leave. Proceed
    further to the northwest and destroy the wormwood barrier. Save your game
    and enter the terminal door to a demon’s domain. You have to defeat a
    group of demons afterward.
    
    
    #############
    =LV28 Kaiwan=
    Weak: Ice
    Null: Dark
    LV28 Incubus x2
    Weak: Elec
    Resist: Force, Light, Dark
    #############
    
    This shouldn’t be a hard battle, considering their HPs are practically
    low. Just exploit their weaknesses to win the battle. If you have an
    all-out ice skill, you can use that to exploit Kaiwan’s weakness while
    damaging the incubi as well. Otherwise, you can do the other way around, by
    exploiting the incubi’s weakness using all-party elec skills.
    
    After clearing the terminal, the main quest “Activate All Terminals”
    will be updated. You can now head back to Mikado and conveniently rest in
    the barracks before returning here. Once ready, head back to Ikebukuro –
    Sunshine Front (lower) and enter the domain to hunt for Xi Wangmu. 
    
    
    --------------------------
    -==Domain – Sunshine 60==-
    --------------------------
    This domain has a fixed map so it’s easy to navigate. Just ignore the
    other rooms since there are no way of saving those trapped NPCs without
    defeating Xi Wangmu. Head east then north then west to find Kaga fighting a
    couple of demons. She’ll let you take out one of them. 
    
    ##################
    =LV28 Qing Niugai=
    Resist: Dark
    Null: Light
    ##################
    This demon doesn’t have any weaknesses but its HP is just around 1000.
    You just need to attack and heal normally to take it out.
    
    After defeating the demon, heal up and have some demons that can dish out
    Force skills and has anything to counter elec skills. Lastly, having demons
    that can debuff will be practically helpful in the upcoming boss battle.
    Save your game when ready then open the door ahead to face the boss.
    
    
    ##################
    =LV30 Xi Wangmu=
    Weak: Force
    Resist: Phys
    Null: Light, Dark
    ##################
    
    For the first round, don’t bother attacking her. Instead, buff your party
    and/or use debuffs on her. Once you used your non-offensive skills, try
    attacking her only to discover that you’re dealing very minimal damage on
    her. During this scene, the other Ring of Gaea members will arrive and
    attack her as one. Finally, Kaga will also lose her life along with the
    other members. 
    
    This unfortunate incident will render Xi Wangmu susceptible to your
    attacks. This is the time also to go all out and chip her 4500 HP away. She
    will start the battle using Orchard Guardian, a skill that will raise all
    her stats. If you have Dekaja, you can use this skill to nullify the
    enemy’s buffs. Other debuffing skills like Fog Breath, Acid Breath and
    War Cry can also help even out her advantage. 
    
    Xi Wangmu can use Maziodyne, which can be pretty destructive to any demon
    that has no resistance or has weakness against it. Her another skill is
    Megaton Press which can be easily repelled if you have Tetrakarn. When
    she’s critically injured, she will use Queen’s Feast, which will deal
    considerable damage to everyone and will heal her in the process. Continue
    dealing damage to her using force skills and heal up your party as
    necessary.
    
    After defeating her, the quest will be complete. In addition to the exp
    reward, you can now also fuse Lady Xi Wangmu through special fusion. 
    Defeating Xi Wangmu will allow you to finish the following ongoing
    challenge quests:  Ikebukuro Free District and Sunset for a Demonnapper.
    Refer to the Challenge Quests section for details. 
    
    For the continuation of this quest, refer back to “Capture the Black

    After receiving this quest from Gabby, travel back to Tokyo and head to the
    Hunter Association in Shinjuku Underground District to get some new
    challenge quests. (The Malevolent Star Falls, Excavate Coffee Beans,
    Protect the Tower)

    -== Shinjuku National Park – Pond Garden ==-
    --------------------------------------------
    
    When ready, travel to Shinjuku Underground using the terminal and exit to
    the city map. Enter the nearby location to the south of the station to
    enter the Shinjuku National Park. If you haven’t explore the area yet,
    head to the west to find a chest containing a Summon Stone. The path will
    be blocked by wormwood and you have to break it from the other side so turn
    back and follow the path leading east this time. 
    
    Approach the magical barrier and check the gap to the left to find another
    chest. Stand in front of the barrier and examine it. The hexagram barrier
    will react; use it to destroy the barrier and continue forth. Check the
    alcove to the southeast to find a chest containing a Chakra Pot. Further to
    the west lies a hunter corpse that will net you an Expanse Meat. Proceed
    further to the west to destroy the wormwood barrier. Head to the south next
    only to be stopped by the guard. You’ll have to fight him and his demon
    to proceed. 
    
    ####################
    =LV31 Balor=
    Resist: Force, Light
    Null: Fire, Dark
    ####################
    
    This demon doesn’t have any weaknesses so you’ll have to rely on
    healing and buffs/debuffs to gain advantage in battle. Balor is also fond
    of using Maragion and Mudoon so bringing demons that has defenses against
    these attacks will help. He also uses Megaton Press which can be reflected
    using Tetrakarn though you don’t have any idea when he’s going to use
    it. Its HP is around 1,100 so you shouldn’t encounter problems in the
    long run as long as you keep your party healthy. 
    
    After defeating the demon, proceed south to enter a new area. 
    
    
    --------------------------------
    -==Kagome Tower- Lower Level==-
    --------------------------------
    
    Turn east to find a chest containing a 10-point card. Next, follow the path
    and make your way to the room to the south. This area has some really
    interesting demons so you can fight and recruit, maybe fuse to new more
    powerful demons. Return to the Underground district if you need to heal up
    but if you just want to complete your objectives (and if you’re confident
    that your team is powerful enough), you can just avoid as much battles as
    possible. 
    
    After reaching the next door, save your game and enter. Here, you’ll have
    to face one special demon. 
    
    
    ##################
    =LV33 Murmur=
    Weak: Fire, Ice
    Repel: Elec, Force
    Null: Light, Dark
    ##################
    
    Keep on the offensive by exploiting its weaknesses. It’s Axel Claw is an
    attack to look out for since it deals multiple hits on a target. You may
    want to reflect it or just keep your party’s HP up. Bring out a demon
    that has defenses against Murmur’s Mazionga, to force him to lose his
    press turn icons. His HP is only around 1300 which can be pretty short
    especially if you get full press turns from attacking his weaknesses.
    After defeating Murmur, you’ll be able to free one of your captured
    fellows. The quest will be updated as well. Continue forth and take the
    stairs. Be wary of an ambush that will trigger when you’re near the exit
    to the next floor. Collect the relic here and move on. 
    
    
    -------------------------------
    -==Kagome Tower- Upper Level==-
    -------------------------------
    
    This is yet another straightforward path. As usual, be careful of enemy
    ambushes along the way then continue until you reach the next door. Save
    your game and fight the next demon guarding the cage.
    
    ##################
    =LV33 Gemori=
    Weak: Ice
    Drain: Fire
    Null: Light, Dark
    ##################
    
    This demon has practically low HP (around 900) so just exploit its weakness
    and you should be able to take it out in one turn by taking advantage of
    extra press turn icons. 
    
    After defeating the demon guardian, Walter will open the cage and escort
    the captive outside of the tower. Proceed forth to the next door in the
    same level. Be careful of the paralyzing trap on the way to the second door
    as it can ensnare you and leave you vulnerable for demon attacks. Save your
    game outside the door and face the next guardian. 
    
    
    ##################
    =LV33 Asmodeus=
    Weak: Force
    Drain: Fire
    Null: Light, Dark
    ##################
    
    This demon is a bit dangerous compared to the other two guardians you have
    faced so far. It has around 2600 HP so expect the battle to drag on longer.
    Consider using buffs and debuffs since this demon can buff and even heal
    itself. Asmodeus’ attacks are diverse so its really hard to determine
    what attack to defend against.  It’s Hell’s Torment can deal heavy
    damage to everyone, proportionate to their max HP so keep everyone afloat
    using Mediarama. Exploit his weakness to force skills to get extra turns. 
    
    After defeating the demon and rescuing the last VIP, exit the tower and
    head back to the Shinjuku Underground. From there, take the terminal back
    to Mikado. Go to the Monastery to complete the quest. You’ll also get two
    main quests. (Kill the Black Samurai and Onward to Shibuya)

    haven’t explored the area yet, you’ll find a chest near an NPC by the
    sandy area near the rock barrier. A short walk to the east you’ll find a
    hunter woman that will give you a general idea about the district. 
    
    Head to the west to find a tunnel you can enter. There’s also a relic
    spawn point nearby and a demon’s domain. Enter the tunnel and the guard
    will let you pass through. 
    
    ---------------
    -== Roppongi==-
    ---------------
    
    Once you’ve reached the next area, you can explore it a bit. To the north
    of the tunnel lies a demon’s domain where a LV40 Demonee-ho resides as
    the domain’s boss. Clearing this domain will net you a Firearm Box. Head
    south from the tunnel then follow the road east to find a chest containing
    a Bead.  You’ll find the Tokyo Tower further to the east but there’s
    currently no locations of interest here except a lone relic spawn point
    near the tower. 
    
    There’s a demon’s domain in Camp Meguro to the southeast that has a
    LV47 War Horde (Drain: Fire, Weak: Force) as the domain boss so you may
    have to save it for later until you’re around that level.  If you manage
    to clear it out, you’ll get a Bazooka Set. To the southwest corner is a
    chest containing a Summon Stone.
    
    When ready, return to the tunnel and enter the location directly next to it
    to get to Shibuya. As soon as you enter, Burroughs will inform you about an
    incoming message. Tayama himself will inform you to make your way to Club
    Milton. 
    
    
    --------------------------------------
    -==Shibuya Station – Front Crosswal==-
    --------------------------------------
    
    This is an enclosed area. Start by checking the relic and random treasure
    location in the southeast corner, from the entrance. Head a bit to the west
    to find another relic spawn point and a hunter corpse that has Charkra Drop
    in the middle of the street. Continuing to the west will lead you to the
    next area but explore the northern side of this area first for more loot. 
    Go through the opening in the steel fence then turn left immediately to
    find a Gold Jet from the chest and a random treasure in the dead end. 
    There’s a chest to the northeast containing a Bead, a hunter corpse to
    the northwest that has a Knockout Gas and a relic spawn point at the closed
    door. There’s a room to the northwest as well that has a demon but just
    ignore it since it will just talk to you. The subway entrance to the
    northeast leads to Underground District D but it’s closed from the other
    side. Ignore this then leave the fenced area. Continue to the west. 
    
    
    -----------------------------
    -==Shibuya – 108 Building==-
    -----------------------------
    
    There’s some stairs leading to Shibuya’s large underground district. It
    is a safe area that has shops and the hunter association in case you need
    some healing and supplies. You need to head there to reach Club Milton but
    for now explore the next areas for more relics and loot. 
    
    Loot the hunter corpse in front of the stairs to get a Nerve Gas. Exit to
    the southwest to reach an enclosed area in Shibuya – Dogenzaka.  Open the
    chest to get a #1 Bazooka. Return to 108 Building afterward.
    
    Head to the middle west to find a relic spawn point in the building
    entrance. Go upstairs beside it to find a chest containing a Chakra Pot.
    Continue to the northwest to reach the next area. 
    
    
    -----------------------------
    -==Shibuya – Inokashira-dori==-
    -----------------------------
    
    Don’t get discouraged by the wormwood barriers you’ll immediately see
    in front you. Approach them then take a left to find a hunter corpse. Get a
    Dis-Poison from it then follow the path until you reach the main road. Be
    careful since there’s a fairy horde among the random demons in the area. 
    Head south of the street to find a random treasure and relic point. Head
    north this time to find more relics  and a hunter corpse to the northeast
    backstreet. Get an Expanse Meat from it then destroy the wormwood barriers.
    This area is now clear so you can just go back to the Underground District.
    
    
    -------------------------
    -==Shibuya Underground==-
    -------------------------
    
    District A has the weapon shop where you can find good upgrades to your
    current melee weapon, gun and ammo. Proceed to the northeast to reach
    District B. To the northwest corner you’ll find the terminal entrance.
    Save your game and heal up your best party to clear the demon domain. 
    
    
    ################
    =LV33 Orochi=
    Weak: Elec
    Null: Fire, Ice, Light, Dark 
    ################
    
    This demon’s weak to Elec so use demons that can exploit that weakness.
    Its main offensive element is ice so forget about bringing demons weak to
    it. It will debuff the party using War Cry so it will help using your own
    buffs to level out the battle. Its HP is just around 1,500 so it
    shouldn’t be that much of a battle, if you’re able to utilize your
    bonus press turns. 
    
    After defeating Orochi, the main quest “Activate All Terminals” will be
    updated.  From the terminal, continue to the northeast and climb up the
    ledge to reach the next section of the Underground. Check the deadend to
    the north to find a Light Grimoire.
    
    Next, go upstairs to the east to find ladder going up. This leads to
    Miyashita Park, an enclosed area where you’ll find some items. Check the
    chests for Balm of Rising, Summon Stone and Ag Incense and some relics. Go
    back underground and exit south of District B to reach District D. 
    
    From there, find the exit leading to Shibuya’s Front Crosswalk and press
    the button to raise the railing. There’s a chest to the district’s west
    side but it’s protected by some objects so ignore it for now. Continue
    south to exit to District C.
    
    In this district, you’ll find the Hunter Associate to the southwest.
    Enter it to get some new Challenge Quests and/or heal up. (Help Me Get Some
    Servers, Banquet of Flames, Hunter Tournament Finals, Training Battle 5 and
    Training Battle 6)
    
    After getting the quests, exit to the southeast but don’t take the stairs
    yet. Enter the vent to reach the unreachable chest in District D. Obtain a
    Chakra Pot from the chest then go back to District C. Exit using the
    stairs. 
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    -==Shibuya Station West Entrance==-
    ----------------------------------
    
    A bit to the southwest is a relic point. In front of it is a shed that you
    can climb on. Loot the chest there to find a Lu Incense. Head south and go
    upstairs to find a couple of hunter’s corpses containing a Revival Bead
    and Nerve Gas. There’s another relic point in the bus and another one
    near the stairs to the southwest. After checking the whole area out, enter
    the underground entrance to the west. 
    
    
    --------------------------------
    -==Shibuya – Inside Mark City==-
    --------------------------------
    
    There’s nothing much to do here aside from checking the rooms and talking
    to NPCs. There’s a relic spawn point here but that’s about it. Exit the
    area. 
    
    
    -------------------------
    -==Shibuya – Dogenzaka==-
    -------------------------
    
    Loot the hunter corpse nearby to get a Revival Bead. Head to the east to
    find a couple of relic spawn points and a chest containing skull rounds.
    The west and middle paths are blocked by wormwood so take the path to the
    east and destroy the barriers. 
    
    Loot the corpse in the western path to get a Poison Gas. Continue north and
    follow the path until you reach a dimly lit alley. An accented manager will
    meet your party. The quest will be complete afterward. During the
    conversation, a new main quest will be added. (Off Koga Saburo)
    Koga Saburo is located ahead so heal up your party and bring out demons
    that can dish out Ice attacks and has defenses against physical, force or
    elec. You’ll prefer demons that has defenses against Phys attacks since
    the next boss’ most damaging attacks belong to this type. Better yet,
    have some demons that can heal and buff as well. When ready, enter the
    alley to meet Koga Saburo.

    After receiving this quest, continue to the dark alley to find this boss
    demon. You’ll have the option to challenge it or walk away. Challenge it
    to battle.

    ##################
    
    Koga Saburo has three press turns and will start off using Sukukaja to
    increase his hit and evasion rates. He’ll also use Javelin Rain, Fatal
    Sword or a quick combination of Zandyne or Ziodyne.  If you don’t have
    any demons that can counter those skills, don’t use demons that are weak
    against those attacks instead. Its HP is around 2200 so the battle can drag
    on for a while or end quickly depending on how much your party can
    withstand his attacks or how you offensively take advantage of extra press
    turns. 
    
    After defeating Koga Saburo, the quest will be complete.  After a short
    scene with the Ashura-kai man, you’ll get a new main quest. (Onward to
    Roppongi)

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    From Shibuya Station, exit to the city map then head east and enter the
    tall building there. The guard will tell you to use the elevator to reach
    the 52nd floor and meet Tayama himself. He will ask one more favor before
    the hostage is released. He will give you an option to accept the quest or
    refuse. Whatever you choose, you’ll get a new main quest. 
    
    The quest will be completed after the conversation ends and after your
    party returns to the city map.

    Reward: 5000 Macca
    Task: Kill Yuriko of the Ring of Gaea
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Use a terminal to travel to Kasumigaseki then exit to the city map. You
    need to enter Tokyo Station, a short walk to the east. 
    
    
    -------------------
    -==Tokyo Station==-
    -------------------
    
    Once inside, head to the southwest corridor where a Ring of Gaea man will
    stop you. You’ll have to choose if you’ll tell him that you’ve come
    to kill Yuriko or if you want to join the Ring of Gaea. Either option will
    still put you in a fight against him and two of his demons. This battle
    shouldn’t be that hard. Just head the demons with force attacks and use
    the extra press turns to deal more damage or concentrate your attacks on
    the remaining targets until all of them are defeated. 
    
    After defeating the man, he’ll tell you to take the entrance test. The
    quest will be updated. Continue to the next area afterward. 
    
    
    ---------------------------------
    -==Ginza- Underground District==-
    ---------------------------------
    
    Move forward a bit for your gauntlet to scan the area and create a map for
    you. Head to the east and you’ll find Ginza’s terminal. It is unguarded
    so you just need to head there and activate the terminal. This will also
    update the main quest Activate All Terminals. There is some new equipment
    here as well. Browse the weapon shop’s inventory and upgrade your arsenal
    if you can afford it. 
    
    For the main objective, you have to head south to Hongwanji Passage.
    You’ll find Ginza’s Hunter Associate to the west. Check the bulletin
    board to get another challenge quest. (The Great Drunkenness)The stairs
    nearby leads to Ginza – 4th District Crosswalk. This is an enclosed area
    with gates where you need to pay the gatekeepers for them to let you
    through.(See the “I will Give You My Black Card” quest)
    The following part of this walkthrough is optional. If you want to continue
    with the main story, go to Hongwanji Passage then exit to the city map in
    the area called Ginza Region.
    
    
    -----------------------------------
    -=Ginza – 4th District Crosswalk==-
    -----------------------------------
    
    The other gates will be locked and the only one accessible is to the west.
    However, the Ring of Gaea man guarding it will ask you to pay 5000 macca.
    Do so and you’ll be able to access the other areas beyond the gate. 
    
    
    ------------------
    -==Harumi Way A==-
    ------------------
    
    This is small area with several relic points. After collecting the relics,
    you can go to the southwest corner of the area to find a staircase that
    leads to the next area. 
    
    
    -------------------------
    -== Southwest Passage ==-
    -------------------------
    
    This passage is filled with toxic mist. This won’t cause you to get the
    poison status immediately however every few steps will slowly drain your
    party’s HP. This place is worth exploring since there are two chests that
    contain good loot. 
    
    Follow the path south until you see another path leading north. Destroy the
    wormwood barrier then continue forth until you find a chest. Open it to get
    a Battle Earring. Return to the main path in the middle then continue east.
    Get close to the rubble to reveal a vent that you can enter on the ceiling.
    Ignore it for now.
    
    Take the path going south and destroy the wormwood barrier in another path
    along the way. Loot the 10-point card from the chest there then destroy the
    other wormwood barrier in the same corridor if you want. The path further
    south is a deadend. Backtrack to the vent beside the rubble to the east to
    reach the next area.  
    
    
    -----------------------
    -==Southeast Passage==-
    -----------------------
    
    The room to the north contains a shabby man that will sell a Silver Coin.
    This is part of a challenge quest later on so you won’t be able to buy it
    from him for now. You have to go back again after getting the Platinum Card
    from the southern gate in the 4th District Crosswalk and once you have
    100,000 in your pocket. There’s also a chest to the northeast and
    southeast though you can’t access them yet. 
    
    Enter the room to the middle-right to find a hunter that sells a Gold Card
    for 5,000 macca. However, he will increase the price to 10,000 macca. Buy
    it from him if you have the cash. The Southeast Passage has two more vents
    you can enter, one in the southeast corner and one to the southwest. The
    southwest vent leads to a chest containing a Balm of Rising while the vent
    in the southeast takes you the enclosed chest containing a Bead. You have
    to walk your way back to Ginza – 4th District Crosswalk.  
    
    
    ------------------------------------
    -==Ginza – 4th District Crosswalk==-
    ------------------------------------
    
    Head to the south to reach the southern gate. The Ring of Gaea woman there
    will ask you to pay 50,000 macca before she lets you through. 
    
    
    -------------------
    -==Central Way A==-
    -------------------
    This is a small, enclosed area. There are two relic points to the western
    side and two ladders on both ends of the Kabuki Theater’s entrance. The
    northern ladder leads to a Chakra Pot while the other ladder leads you to
    the Platinum Card. You can now head back to the 4th District Crosswalk. 
    
    
    ------------------------------------
    -==Ginza – 4th District Crosswalk==-
    ------------------------------------
    
    Once you have the Platinum Card, you can now buy the Silver Coin from the
    man in the Southeast Passage for 100,000. If you head back to the Ginza
    Hunter Association , you’ll get the challenge quest “I will Give You My
    Black Card”. Deliver the Silver Coin you bought earlier to finish the
    quest. Completing this challenge quest allow you complete another challenge
    quest since you’ll need to use the Black Card to access the last locked
    down gate. 
    
    
    ------------------
    -==Harumi Way B==-
    ------------------
    This is a small enclosed area with multiple spawn points. These spawn
    points yield 3-star and 4-star relics that you can sell for much higher
    prices. Other than that, there’s no other interesting objects in the
    area. 
    
    
    ---------------------------------------
    -==Central Way B – Shopping District==-
    ---------------------------------------
    
    This gate to the north requires the Black Card to access. This immediate
    area doesn’t have anything of interest aside from a few relic points.
    Exit to the west to reach the Shopping District. The district has the
    Members-only Item and Weapon Shops, that sell unbelievably expensive (yet
    top-quality) items and equipment. 
    
    If you have accepted the challenge quest “The Great Drunkenness”,
    you’ll find a red demon in the northwest corner of the shopping district,
    right outside the Members-only Weapon Shop. 
    
    There’s a minor scene where Isabeau finds one of the chapters of the
    manga she’s reading in a shop behind the weapons shop. There’s also a
    group of bickering demons inside a shop to the south of the weapons shop
    which will ask you which one is the “heroine”. Choose any one of them
    to receive an item. 
    
    There are also a few relic points here. After exploring the area, you can
    now return to the Ginza Underground District to proceed with the main
    story. Go through the Hongwanji passage and exit to Ginza Region. 
    
    
    ------------------
    -==Ginza Region==-
    ------------------
    
    You need to enter the temple that’s right outside of the passage where
    you came from. However before entering it, you can explore some of the
    accessible areas in this region. There’s a chest to the south that
    contains a Bead. The two locations on the way to the desert portion to the
    north have demon domains in them. Get past these domains and head  further
    east will lead you to a relic point and a chest containing a Summon Stone.
    Enter the temple when ready.
    
    Domains:
    ++ St. John’s Hospital: LV44 Ghoul x3
    ++ Kabuto Shrine:  LV75 Alciel (Reward: Kusanagi Tsurugi)
    
    Once inside, a Ring of Gaea member will greet you. You’ll learn that you
    have to pass their entrance test. He will upload a new Challenge Quest in
    your terminal, “Overcome the Trial”.
    
    
    //// OVERCOME THE TRIAL ////
    Client: Ring of Gaea Member
    Reward: 3000 Macca
    Task: Get through the trial put upon you
    
    This is a mandatory challenge quest that’s part of the main quest
    "Kill Yuriko". Accept the quest from your gauntlet to proceed. You have
    to reach the main temple before your candle goes out. The candle’s status
    will be displayed while you’re exploring the place and during the battle.
    The lesser damage you receive from combat, the better.
    
    
    -------------------------
    === Tsukiji Hongwanji ===
    -------------------------
    
    Your allies will go separate ways so you’ll have to rely on your demons
    in battle. The battles will be mandatory so don’t bother going around the
    stationary demons. From the entrance, refer to your mini-map and head east.
    Defeat the demon there and follow the path east, pass the other hallways
    blocked by wormwood barriers then south until you find a portal. Enter it
    to reach another hallway in the room. 
    
    
    ---------------------
    === Main Temple ===
    ---------------------
    
    Destroy the wormwood barrier straight ahead then enter the next portal to
    the left. In the next corridor, defeat two more demon groups ahead and
    enter the next portal. 
    
    
    -------------------------
    === 1st Training Hall ===
    -------------------------
    
    After emerging in a new area, open the chest nearby to get a Balm of
    Rising. The path in the middle is blocked by wormwood so you either have to
    go through the east or western portals. The eastern portal will transport
    you back to the entrance so head west instead and defeat the demon. Enter
    the western portal. In the next hallway, go around to the east and follow
    the corridor until you find a demon along the way. Defeat it and destroy
    the two wormwood barriers. Enter the portal to reach the next area. 
    
    
    -------------------------
    === 2nd Training Hall ===
    -------------------------
    
    Defeat the demon around the corner and you’ll find two more portals to
    the north and south. Take the portal to the south to reach the main temple
    entrance. Before moving forth, save your game. A Ring of Gaea member is
    waiting there and will serve as your last test before you can proceed
    further. 
    
    ############
    LV40 Taraka
    Null: Light, dark 
    ############
    
    This enemy has no elemental strength or weakness and immune to Light and
    Dark insta-kills. Its HP is around 2700-2800. It can use Tetrakarn and
    Mudoon that can easily take out your party one at a time. Concentrate in
    attacking it using elemental skills to bypass the effects of Tetrakarn.
    Since its only means of damaging you is by using ordinary attacks, you can
    use your own Tetrakarn skill if you have. Bring out demons that have
    defenses against dark attacks to increase your chances of winning. 
    
    After defeating the boss, you’ll need to go through the door to complete
    the challenge. However, you can take the portal where you came from to
    return to the entrance and fully explore the area to get the other items
    you may have missed. If you don’t want to bother, just skip the steps
    below. 
    
    
    ----------------------
    === Main Temple ===
    ----------------------
    (Starting from the entrance) Head west then enter the portal there. In the
    next corridor, follow the corridor to the west then go around to the north.
    Defeat the demon along the way then continue along the corridor heading
    east. Enter the portal there to be transported to the other corridor in the
    same area that’s blockaded by wormwood. Open the chest containing a
    Chakra Pot then destroy the wormwood. We’re done in this area so let’s
    go back to the entrance. Take the portal where you came from a few seconds
    ago to return to the entrance. 
    
    (Starting from the entrance again) Head west then enter the portal there.
    Instead of going west, head north and enter the portal. (1st Training Hall)
    Enter the portal in the middle. (2nd Training Hall) Enter the portal to the
    north. Destroy the wormwood barrier to your immediate left. The portal to
    the northeast will transport you back to the entrance so take the southwest
    corridor and defeat the demon there. 
    
    Enter the portal to get back to enclosed area in the Main Temple. (Main
    Temple) Destroy the wormwood in the corridor to the west then follow the
    path south. Defeat the demon there to get the chest containing Pumpkin
    Bombs. 
    
    After getting the treasures, make your way to the entrance again then
    follow the steps below to reach the Main Temple. (Main Hall) Go west, enter
    the portal. In the next corridor, go north and enter the portal again. (1st
    Training Hall) Enter the portal in the middle. (2nd Training Hall) Follow
    the corridor to the northwest then enter the southern portal. Enter the
    large door ahead. 
    
    You’ll find your allies in the next room as they have completed the task
    as well. This challenge quest will be complete. However, your celebration
    is cut short since you’ll be caught in a trap. 
    
    
    -------------------------
    -== Passage of Ethics ==-
    -------------------------
     
    After landing on the dungeon-like passage under the temple, the mission
    will be updated. Continue forth and you’ll find a split path. You’ll be
    presented with choices which will affect your alignment. Jonathan’s
    suggestions tend to incline towards “Law” while Walter’s choices
    incline toward “Chaos”. You’ll have to make your choices on three
    different paths along the way.
    
    
    -First Question-
    ˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉ
    You are the ruler of a country. You have called upon your people to gather
    en masse for a game. Among those who attend, one is extraordinarily tall.
    What would you do? If you would exclude this person for the sake of
    fairness, go right. If you accept one's height is merely a part of their
    individuality and include this person, go left.
    
    
    
    -Second Question-
    ˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉˉ
    You are the chief of a village which has lived the same way for 1,000
    years. One day, a man visits your village, carrying with him revolutionary
    technology. This technology would greatly ease your people's lives, but
    would also do away with their current lifestyle. What would you do? Go
    right if you would expel the visitor in order to preserve the lifestyle you
    have always known. Go left if you would welcome the visitor in order to

    The love of your life lies in front of you, unconscious. There is no hope
    that they will ever wake again. You have already tried many things, to no
    avail. What would you do? If you would care for this person for the rest of
    your life, go right. If you would stop all treatment and allow this person
    to perish naturally, go left.
    
    
    After making your choices, you’ll meet Yuriko herself. After the scene,
    this quest will be completed and you’ll get another main quest.

    -==Tsuki Hongwanji – Shelter Ruins==-
    -------------------------------------
    
    You’ll continue exploring the ruins underneath the Ring of Gaea temple.
    There are some traps along the way but there are no demons you’ll
    encounter yet. Go around the path to the west to find a chest containing a
    St Incense and the other side of the wormwood barrier that you can destroy.
    Take the ladder in the middle north to reach the next corridor.
    
    Continue forth and follow the path. Like the room, go around to the west to
    find another chest (Summon Stone) and the other side of the wormwood
    barrier. Take the ladder to the northeast to continue. 
    
    In this room, go around the corridor and grab the Bead Chain from the chest
    and destroy the barrier if you want. Open the door to the north to reach
    the Main Temple. When asked where you want to go, exit to the main building
    then take the portal to return to the entrance. Exit to the city map next.
    Return to the Ginza Underground District .
    
    
    --------------------------------
    -==Ginza Underground District==-
    --------------------------------
    
    Head to the fountain and you’ll meet Hikaru and Walter there. After the
    conversation, you’ll obtain the Matchbox and the quest will be updated.
    While you’re at it, you may want to visit the Tavern in Mikado first to
    get a couple new Challenge Quests: Require Ample Weaponry, Heavy Weapon
    Recovery. Travel to Shinjuku next. 
    
    
    -----------------------------------
    -==Shinjuku Underground District==-
    -----------------------------------
    Head to the Hunter Association to get two new challenge quests. (RxW
    Smacktacular XIII, Serial Kidnapping + Arson) From there, head to Shinjuku
    East Entrance Main Street then exit north to Kabuki-cho.
    
    
    ----------------
    -==Kabuki-Cho==-
    ----------------
    
    Head to the café to the northeastern corner of the area. Show the matchbox
    to gain entrance. Inside, you’ll find Hikaru, Skins and Fujiwara himself.
    After the conversation, head back to the underground district and take the
    terminal to Shibuya.  
    
    -------------
    -==Shibuya==-
    -------------
    Exit the underground district and make your way back to the city map. Head
    east past Tayama’s tower, save your game and enter the next accessible
    building to find a demon inside.  
    
    
    -------------------------
    -==Roppongi-Midtown 1F==-
    -------------------------
    
    You have to defeat Tenkai in order to proceed. This LV44 Famed demon has
    resistance to phys, gun and all elemental attacks and can nullify both
    light and dark. It uses Megido to deal almighty attack to your party and
    will even increase its resiliency further by using Rakukaja. Heal as
    necessary and compensate with Tenkai’s natural defense by using buffs and
    debuffs. If possible, use your own almighty attacks. 
    
    After dealing around 600+ damage to him, he’ll ask you a question about
    your ideal Tokyo. Select the answer that best describes your alignment.
    Continue dealing damage and he’ll ask you what you’ll do if you learn
    about Ashura-kai’s secret. If you happen to answer that you don’t know,
    Tenkai will just become stronger. 
    
    Continue dealing damage to him and he’ll eventually tell you to defeat
    him. This means his HP is critically low and just push forward with more
    damage and he’ll go down.  
    
    Tenkai will leave behind a slab of stone after he’s defeated. Take note
    of it since you’ll have to pick something up from that stone later on.
    Head north instead and check the northeast corner to find a chest
    containing a Bead. Backtrack to the stone and follow the corridor east. You
    can’t go further because of the barrier but you can go through a vent
    around the corner. 
    
    This will take you to a closed balcony with a chest containing a Balm of
    Rising inside. Go back to the vent and take the elevator to the east, near
    the barrier to reach the 33rd floor.  
    
    
    -----------------
    -==Midtown 33F==-
    -----------------
    
    Go to the west first then check the door to the southwest. You’ll obtain
    a St Incense from there. In the same office room, check the cubicles to the
    east to find a hunter corpse, a 10-point card from the chest and a relic
    spawn point by the large door. 
    
    Run to the north and follow the hallway to the east. Enter the room around
    the corner to get a Dx Incense. South of that room is an open vent and
    another relic point. Get the relic and enter the vent to reach the chest in
    the western room to get a Sleep Harpe from it. 
    
    Head east and destroy the wormwood barrier in the corridor to the south.
    Follow the path northeast to reach the next elevator. Don’t forget to get
    the Summon Stone from the chest in front of the elevator. Use the elevator
    to reach 43F
    
    
    -----------------
    -==Midtown 43F==-
    -----------------
    
    After exiting the elevator, head to the southeast to find a chest
    containing a Chakra Pot. Backtrack a bit then head west this time. Pick up
    the relic from the door along the way then go around the corner to reach
    the next room. There are two more spawn points by the doors along the way.
    
    Go around the dividers and examine the room to the southwest. You’ll get
    an Ag Incense. Follow the path until you reach the elevator lobby. Don’t
    take the elevator yet. Instead, go north and destroy the wormwood barrier.
    Enter the room nearby to get a Ma Incense. Return to the elevator and use
    it to reach the 54th floor. 
    
    
    -----------------
    -==Midtown 54F==-
    -----------------
    
    Head to the south and check the corner beside some vending machines to get
    a St Incense. Enter the nearby security room to a Lu Incense. Head to the
    north and examine the door there. Burroughs will warn you about a strong
    demon ahead. Don’t worry about it since you won’t fight it. 
    After the conversation with Mastema, he’ll take down the barriers.
    You’ll be outside the room after this so head to the east and use the
    elevator to reach 1F. From there, take the stairs nearby to reach the next
    area.
    
    
    --------------------------------
    -==Midtown – Employee Passage==-
    --------------------------------
    
    This is just a short area so just follow the path until you reach the
    trapdoor leading to the area below.
    
    --------------------------------
    Midtown – Former Army Shelter==-
    --------------------------------
    
    Go straight ahead then turn to the first right to find a chest containing a
    Chakra Pot. Return to the main path and follow it until you stumble upon a
    hunter corpse. From there, you’ll come across another intersection a few
    steps to the west. Head north then west to find a chest containing a Bead
    Chain. Make your way to the south and follow the path until you reach the
    door. Exit to the next area. 
    
    
    -------------------------
    -==Reverse Hills – B7F==-
    -------------------------
    
    There are smaller rooms here that contain gas-masked men and their victims.
    Just ignore them if you want and enter the room with the glass door to the
    southeast corner to find a Chakra Pot from the chest. Take the path in the
    middle and destroy the wormwood barrier there. Head to the northeast corner
    and destroy another wormwood barrier there. The glass door’s switch seems
    to be broken so ignore it for now. 
    
    From there, head west for a bit then enter the next small room before
    reaching the glass door in the northwest corner. You’ll find a gas-masked
    man here that will give you Key #2. Head to the elevator to the south and
    use the Card Key there. This will give you access to floors B8F and B9F. Go
    down to B8F first. 
    
    
    -------------------------
    -==Reverse Hills – B8F==-
    -------------------------
    
    This floor has the same layout as the previous floor. Enter the glass room
    to the southeast corner to find a chest containing a Bead. Head to the room
    in the middle-north to find a gas-masked man teaching a couple of kids.
    He’ll give you Card Key #3. 
    
    Enter the glass room in the northwest corner and go up the broken vent up
    in the ceiling. This will take you to the enclosed glass room in B7F. Loot
    the Gold Bulldozer from the chest there. Go back down and head back to the
    elevator. Go to B9F this time. 
    
    
    -------------------------
    -==Reverse Hills – B9F==-
    -------------------------
    
    Check the glass room to the southeast and you’ll find a hunter corpse
    inside.  Next, check the glass room to the southwest corner and open it. Go
    up the vent opening on the ceiling and do it once again to reach the
    enclosed glass room in B7F that has a chest that contains a Great Chakra. 
    Return back to B9F and go around the middle hallway. Destroy the wormwood
    barriers and make your way to the northeast corner glass room. Open the
    door and climb the ceiling vents to reach the chest on B7F containing Gouma
    Rounds. Continue to the northwest and destroy the other wormwood barriers.
    
    Go to the corner glass room this time and open the door. Loot the Summon
    Stone from the chest inside. Finally enter the room beside the glass room
    to find a gas-masked man in the middle of an extraction. 
    
    You’ll have to fight the demon horde he’ll send at you. This horde
    isn’t that difficult. It’s weak against fire so use an all-party fire
    attack to decimate the horde quickly. You’ll obtain a Brown Bottle and
    Card Key 4 in this room. Head to the elevator to the north and use that
    Card Key to reach the next floor. 
    
    
    -------------------------
    -==Reverse Hills – B51F==-
    -------------------------
    
    From this floor, just go downstairs to the south and enter the door. After
    the dialogue, the quest will be complete. 
    
    Head north towards the elevator for another scene. Just go through a few
    more scenes and another main quest will become available.
