I'm sure that puzzle has ended many Wild Arms runs either permanently (that's why my friend gave me the game as a kid) or for years ( I stopped for years and then just got a guide and beat it lol) due to how incredibly difficult it is or remains the only puzzle in the game people had to use a guide to complete. Do the hints the game give actually make sense since I was under the impression that it was impossible to solve in the US version since it was lacking hints or there was translation errors.
This is GameFAQs. People here take great pride in ignoring common sense.
FWIW I played the game in Japanese and it didn't make sense to me there either. I read all of the hints over and over and even after checking a FAQ my first reaction was "Oh, was I actually supposed to figure that out?"
