 VERSION HISTORY (S1VH)
===========================================================================

Version 0.9 (Completed 5/10/11)
  First version. The guide is complete, but a few things are unconfirmed, 
  hence the 0.9.


===========================================================================
 INTRODUCTION (S2IN)
===========================================================================

The purpose of this guide is to assist players in locating the various 
items of Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light. The reason I wrote this
guide is very simple: one didn't exist. At time of writing, only two
guides are available on GameFAQs for this game: a walkthrough and a crown 
analysis, and neither one covers this topic. After becoming exceedingly 
frustrated with having to search the message boards and other sources to 
discover where Item X can be found, only to learn that said item could only 
be found by stealing it from a boss I'd already beaten, I decided a 
comprehensive guide to Item Completion would be worth creating. My hope is 
that other players will have an easier time finding things than I did.

===========================================================================
 ABOUT THE GUIDE (S4AB)
===========================================================================

As I said, this guide will help players find all the items in the game, 
with a focus on earning the in-game Achievement for having at least one of 
everything. If you didn't know (and this is entirely possible, as the game 
never explicitly tells you about it), there are several Achievements 
to be earned by playing the game. Each Achievement is noted by a new piece 
of artwork on the game's loading screen, when you either load up your save 
or quit and return to the title screen.

Most of these Achievements are gained through normal play; completing a 
"chapter" (for lack of a better term) of the game will unlock a new piece 
of art. There are six, though, that require a bit of extra work. Going 
into detail about all of them is beyond the scope of this guide, but one 
of them is obtained by finding (and keeping!) at least one of every single 
item in the game.

The trouble with this is that many items in the game have a very small 
window of opportunity through which to obtain them, and if you miss that 
window, you can't get the item. Killed a boss you failed to steal from? 
Too bad. Forgot to buy something in town and now the shop's inventory has 
changed? Tough nuggets. Missed a treasure chest in a dungeon you no longer 
have access to? You're SoL. Whatever the case, this game is very 
unforgiving when it comes to 100% completion.

This is where I come in. Using several sources and confirming with my own 
eyes, I've created a list of all items in the game* and given details 
on where to find them. However, this guide is not perfect. It does not list 
every single way to find every single item. What it does is provide at 
least one "easy" method to obtain an item and, if applicable, one or more 
alternate methods, including at least one method that can be performed in 
the endgame, when other methods may be unavailable.

*Truth be told, I can only ASSUME I've listed every item. I have yet to 
 obtain a few of them, but I have reason to believe this list is complete.

Bear in mind that certain items cannot be obtained in the endgame at all; 
if you miss your one and only opportunity, well, sorry. You'll have to 
start over.

Please note that this guide may contain spoilers. This is mostly out of 
necessity, unfortunately; it's difficult to describe where to find 
something if I have to dance around the names of bosses and the like. 
Ideally, you've already played the game and are using this guide to find 
some items that you couldn't before, but that probably won't be the case 
for everyone. I will try to avoid as many spoilers as possible, but 
sometimes it will be unavoidable. 


===========================================================================
 GENERAL INFO (S5GI)
===========================================================================

This section will provide some basic yet important info that will factor 
into your hunt for items.

Let's begin by briefly describing the different ways to obtain items.

1. SHOPPING
   This is probably the easiest way to get items: Go into a town and buy 
   from one of the shops. Have your wallet ready.

2. TREASURE CHEST
   Throughout the game, you will find red treasure chests scattered around. 
   Most of these are in dungeons, but a few are in towns. Open them and 
   the contents are yours.

3. HIDDEN CHEST
   In each town, there are eight hidden treasures. Most of them are simply 
   Potions and other consumables, but a few are rather special.

4. ENEMY STEAL / DROP
   Several of the hard-to-obtain items must be stolen from or dropped by 
   specific enemies. Some are bosses, some are ordinary encounters.

5. WIRELESS
   Quite a few items can only be obtained by spending multiplayer points 
   at the Wireless shops. Thankfully, you can obtain these points without 
   actually playing multiplayer. We'll get into that later.

6. STARTING GEAR
   A number of items are sitting in characters' inventories when they join 
   your party. Several of these items are unobtainable in any other way.

7. ALCHEMIST
   The Alchemist crown has the power to create various attack items. 
   Though never necessary, sometimes it's easier than hunting an item down 
   elsewhere.

8. OTHER
   Items that can't be found via one of the above seven methods have 
   special requirements to obtain. These will be discussed in detail later.

Before I go any further, I should mention something important. Without 
going into too much detail, there's a certain event that takes place
about midway through the game. This event, referred to as "Darkness Falls" 
by many players, causes several changes throughout the world. This includes 
the inventory of shops and the enemies found outside and in dungeons. As 
such, certain items may be located in different places after this event.

With that said, let's go into detail about the above methods for obtaining 
items and discuss a few ways to best take advantage of them, as well as 
mention a few limitations.

------------
- SHOPPING -
------------

The thing to realize about shops is that after Darkness Falls, almost all 
of their inventories change. If you didn't pick up an item before then, 
you'll have to find it elsewhere, assuming that's possible. The easiest way 
to prevent this is to buy one of everything the first time you visit a 
town. This can get expensive, obviously, and it's unnecessary if you follow 
the List further down the guide, but it's a guaranteed way to avoid missing 
anything from the shops.

It's also worth mentioning that several shops are only open at certain 
times of day (in-game, not real time). If a shop isn't open during the day, 
leave the town and wait for nightfall, then try going to the shop again. 
This only applies before Darkness Falls, at which point the cycle of day 
and night ceases.

-------------------
- TREASURE CHESTS -
-------------------

For the most part, treasure chests are always available; if you miss one 
in a dungeon, you can usually come back and get it later. There are four 
major exceptions to this:

 1. Guera Caverns - After Darkness Falls, this dungeon becomes closed off 
    forever. Make sure you get all the treasure chests before then.
 2. Pirate Hideout - The chests in the final room of this cave are filled 
    with new items after Darkness Falls. If you don't get the first set of 
    loot before then, it's gone.
 3. Liberte Whirlpool - Just like Guera Caverns, you can only access this 
    dungeon and its treasures prior to Darkness Falls.
 4. Rolan's Soul - This dungeon is only available at two points in the 
    story. Luckily, there is only one chest to find. Don't miss it!

Another thing worth mentioning is the chests on 70F and 90F of the bonus 
towers. The 70F chest always contains one of seven pieces of armor, while 
the 90F chest always contains one of eight weapons. Which item you get is 
completely random, and the chest is refilled each time you reach that 
floor. Later on, I'll describe a trick to make this a bit less time-
consuming.

-----------------
- HIDDEN CHESTS -
-----------------

The eight hidden items in each town essentially follow the same rules as 
ordinary chests; they're always available. If you can't find something when 
you first arrive in town, you can try to locate it next time you visit. 
They work just like regular treasures, except you can't see them. Press the 
action button when you believe you've found one, and voila. There's always 
a person somewhere in the town (usually the inn) who tells you how many of 
the eight items you've found, so it's easy to keep track of where you still 
need to search.

---------
- STEAL -
---------

You can steal from enemies in three different ways, all done with the 
Bandit crown (or the Storyteller crown set with Bandit abilities). 

 1. Steal  : Single target, sometimes misses.
 2. Plunder: Multiple targets, sometimes misses.
 3. Pillage: Single target, never misses.

You can only steal items if there is space in the thief's inventory; a full 
pack means your attempt will fail.

It should be noted that most enemies carry several different items, but you 
can only get one of them per enemy; any further attempts will fail. 
Equipment is usually harder to obtain than other items. Using the Pillage 
ability will guarantee a successful steal, but you still can't control 
which item you get. This means obtaining certain unique items held by 
bosses will require resetting the game, because you will probably not get 
the item you want the first time you steal.

--------
- DROP -
--------

Enemy drops are based entirely on luck, and the stuff you WANT them to drop 
is, of course, the stuff they almost never drop. Equipping a Fortune Egg* 
or the Bandit crown will increase drop rates, though I'm not sure if their 
effects stack. Certain items, usually from bosses, are "guaranteed" drops, 
meaning the enemy will ALWAYS drop that item upon defeat. It's a good idea 
to always leave a few empty spots in each character's inventory, so you'll 
have space in case an enemy drops an item.

*Truth be told, I don't know for certain what the Fortune Egg does. The 
 in-game description says it doubles the number of items dropped, but this 
 is untrue. My best guess is that it increases drop rates, but I have no 
 data to confirm this. I can't imagine what else it would do, though.

------------
- WIRELESS -
------------

The items from each town's Wireless shop will more than likely take you a 
massive amount of time to obtain, especially if you're playing solo. I 
mentioned earlier that you can get multiplayer points without playing 
multiplayer, and this is true. For every battle you enter (and that's a key 
word there) you will get five points. Whether you win, lose, or escape from 
the battle, you get those points. Winning a boss fight earns additional 
points, though I don't know how many. Some people say 300, some say 500. It 
might depend on the boss. I don't know how many points you can earn by 
actually playing multiplayer, because I've never played it. I can only 
imagine you earn a lot more that way. But if you're playing solo, there's a 
simple trick you can use, one that I'll describe later on, to earn points 
rather easily.

-----------------
- STARTING GEAR -
-----------------

Every time a character joins your party, you should make a habit of 
checking his or her inventory for stuff you want. The four NPCs (Krinjh, 
Torte, Rekoteh, and Rolan) all carry some things that are either completely 
unique or very difficult to obtain elsewhere. Be sure to rob them of all 
important items before they leave your party!

-------------
- ALCHEMIST -
-------------

The Alchemist abilities Forge and Experiment can be used to obtain attack 
items like the Gaia Drum. You can find these items elsewhere in the game, 
and you can even buy them at a certain point in the story, but if you 
want to make them yourself, the option is there. I can't say with any 
certainty that ALL attack items can be obtained this way; I only played 
around with the abilities for a short time. I ended up Forging my own 
Antarctic Wind and Gaia Drum, then I Experimented on those two, changing 
the Gaia Drum into a second Antarctic Wind, then into a Holy Breath, and 
finally into a Raven's Yawn. I imagine the other items are fair game, as 
well, but you might not want to risk it.


===========================================================================
 LOCATION NAMES (S6LN)
===========================================================================

Not all the dungeon names are easily memorable. I expect you to know the 
names of towns and where they are, but here are some quick descriptions of 
all the other place names I'll use when detailing an item's location, 
listed roughly in the order you reach them. This section contains quite a 
few spoilers.

Northern Caves        = Caves between Horne and Witch's Mansion.         
Witch's Mansion       = N of Horne, where you fight Louhi / Greaps.
Moonlight Tower       = NW of Guera, where you find the Merkmal.
Guera Caverns         = Beneath Guera Castle, where you find the Water 
                        Tome; only accessible at night and before Darkness 
                        Falls.
Quicksand Castle      = NE of Guera, where all the quicksand is.
Pirate Hideout        = SE of Liberte, where you first meet Lilibelle.
Liberte Whirlpool     = Inside Liberte, where Aire gets turned into a cat;
                        referred to as "???" in-game; no longer appears 
                        after Darkness Falls.
Animal Burrow         = Caves between Liberte and Guera; only accessible 
                        when all party members are animals.
Fairy Path            = Caves between Guera and Arbor.
Hunting Caves         = Caves between Liberte and Urbeth.
Great Tree Roots      = Beneath Arbor, where you find the Animal Staff.
The Great Tree        = Left of Arbor's throne room, where Arbaroc resides.
Ice Caverns           = Caves surrounding Invidia.
Invidia Underground   = Beneath Invidia, where you find the Dragon Harp.
Tower to the Sky      = In Urbeth, where Yunita climbs to Spelvia.
Spelvia Dungeons      = Beneath Spelvia, where Yunita reunites with Aire.
Rolan's Soul          = Accessed via the pool near the witch in Spelvia; 
                        no longer accessible after the events that require
                        going there.
Mt. Gulg              = Volcano north of Arbor, where you fight Belphegor.
Sun Temple            = South of Invidia, where you fight Mammon.
Magic Laboratory      = Beneath Horne Castle, where you fight Satan.
Star Chamber          = Final dungeon, in the water between Urbeth and 
                        Guera; requires Cetus the whale to access.
Moonsand Ruins        = One of the four bonus towers, north of the Witch's
                        Mansion.
Holy Tree Tower       = One of the four bonus towers, in the water west of
                        Arbor and south of Invidia; requires Cetus the 
                        whale to access.
Mysterious Lighthouse = One of the four bonus towers, inside Liberte on 
                        Cetus the whale's back.
Trial Tower           = One of the four bonus towers, northwest of Spelvia.


===========================================================================
 THE LIST EXPLAINED (S7LE)
===========================================================================

Here we are, the real meat and bones of the guide. Below, you will find a 
list of every single item in the game, broken down into categories and 
organized alphabetically. Each entry will be written using the following 
format:

Item Name: Self-explanatory
Primary:   These are generally what I consider the best ways to obtain the
           item, usually because they take less money, time, and/or effort.
           Your opinion may differ from mine on what is easier, but there
           ya go.
           An entry of "Freaking everywhere" means the item is so common, 
           it's not even worth detailing the location. These are usually
           items such as Potions or Phoenix Downs, which are dropped by
           multiple enemies, sold in multiple shops, found in multiple
           treasure chests, etc. You should have absolutely no trouble 
           finding these.
Alternate: This is where I list alternative methods to obtain an item
           (though not necessarily EVERY method), usually because the 
           Primary method may have a very small window that players often
           miss. However, it should be noted that Alternate methods may
           also have small windows, so readers are advised to check all
           methods in advance.
           Alternate methods are usually more time-consuming or expensive
           than Primary methods, so they aren't recommended, but if you
           are unable or unwilling to make use of the Primary method, this 
           is most likely what you'll have to resort to.
           Some Alternate methods merely say N/A, meaning "Not 
           Applicable". It indicates that, to the best of my knowledge, 
           there are no other ways to get the item, or at least no ways 
           worth mentioning, often because the Primary method is always 
           an option.
Notes:     Special things worth mentioning, such as whether an item is 
           one-of-a-kind, or detailed directions on finding a well-hidden 
           item.

Any entry mentioning the "bonus towers" means it can be found in any one 
of the four 100F towers that require the Master Key to enter.

Some entries (both Primary and Alternate) may be marked with [1] or [2], 
indicating whether it applies to events before or after Darkness Falls. 
Before Darkness Falls, methods marked with [2] will not be available; 
likewise, after the event, entries marked with [1] are lost. Entries not 
marked are available at all times, or are fixed occurrences, in which case 
no marking is necessary.

Some entries are preceded by an asterisk (*). These indicate methods to 
obtain the item that I have not personally confirmed, but which sources 
tell me are possible. I won't bother to mention them if there are easier 
alternatives. For example, Geri in Rolan's Soul can supposedly drop the 
Flame Gauntlet. However, since you can easily buy a Flame Gauntlet from a 
shop in Invidia, there doesn't seem to be much point in mentioning it.

If an item is sold in a shop, I will list the price in parentheses, 
either in "g" (for shops that charge gil) or in "pts" (for the Wireless
shops that require multiplayer points). I will list which town the shop 
is in, but I won't get more specific than that; just check all the shops 
in that town if you aren't sure which one has the item. Multiple towns are 
separated by / marks.

If an item is held in a chest, I will give the name of the dungeon or town 
where the chest is located, but most of the time I will not give specific 
directions to reach it. Certain cases involving unique or very well 
hidden items are the exception.

If an item is in one of the eight "hidden chests" in a town, I will try 
to detail where the chest is located, but you may have to do a fair amount 
of searching to find it.

If an item is stolen from an enemy, keep in mind that that item is not the 
only thing that enemy carries. You might get the item you want, or you 
might get something else. Not much you can do other than try again. 
Remember to use Pillage if it's available, in order to guarantee a 
successful robbery.

If an item is dropped by an enemy, most of the time the drop will be 
pretty rare, especially for equipment (usually between 2% and 5%). 
Consumables like Potions and Antidotes have a slightly better drop rate, 
but it's still not a very efficient way to gather those items. Remember to 
equip a Fortune Egg and/or the Bandit crown to increase drop rates. I will 
make a note if the drop is "guaranteed".

In cases of both steals and drops, I will mention the specific area where 
that enemy was encountered. This is because randomly encountered enemies 
can have different versions with the same name, and the different versions 
might carry different items. The Lizardman enemies you fight outside Horne 
are not the same Lizardman enemies you fight outside Invidia, for example. 
They have different stats and carry different items.

Did you get all that? Let's move on. Here's an example entry:

Awesome Item of Supreme Victory
Primary:   Chest in Horne Castle.
Alternate: Guera shop (1,000,000g) [1].
           Arbor wireless (100,000 pts).
Notes:     I made this item up. It doesn't exist. Don't email me asking 
           where to find it, because I won't answer you.

The Primary method to obtain this item is by finding it in a chest in Horne 
Castle. There are two Alternate methods, if for some reason you cannot use 
the Primary method. The first Alternate is to buy it in Guera for one 
million gil. The [1] indicates that method is only available before 
Darkness Falls. On the next line, there's another Alternate, which is to 
buy it from the Arbor wireless shop for one hundred thousand points. The 
Notes give you important information regarding the item. Pay close 
attention to that part.

Seriously.

Alternate: *Steal from Lucifer in Spelvia/Star Chamber.

Cursed Blade
Primary:   Steal from Doppelganger (Aire) in Rolan's Soul [1].
Alternate: Dropped by Doppelganger bosses in Witch's Mansion [2].
Notes:     All four Doppelgangers in Rolan's Soul [1] also have a chance

           Sources tell me the Doppelgangers who appear in the Star

Mythril Hammer
Primary:   Trade Mythril to Invidia weapon shop owner.
Alternate: N/A
Notes:     There is only one in the entire game. To obtain it, do the 
           following: Arrive at Invidia with Jusqua and Brandt, get 
           Rekoteh into your party, examine the giant egg, steal a 
           piece of Mythril from Mythritoise enemies outside at night,
           give the Mythril to the weapon shop guy, sleep at the inn,
           and return to the shop for the Hammer.
           While doing all this, it's important for you to NOT continue
           the story by using Firaga on the egg, at least until you have 
           the Hammer. Once it's yours, you can continue the story by 
           following either method. But if you cast Firaga on the egg
           before getting the Hammer, you will not be able to obtain it.

           above 80F, usually alone, but sometimes in pairs. I highly
           recommend equipping a Fortune Egg and/or the Bandit Crown to 
           increase drop rate.

           a very rare steal, and there's no other place to get it. You 
           will likely have to reset multiple times. It's worth noting 
           that you supposedly CANNOT steal this from the second version of 
           Mammon in the Star Chamber, though I don't know that for sure.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
 ARMOR (L500)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adventurer's Garb
Primary:   Steal/Drop from Adventurer on 100F of Trial Tower.
Alternate: N/A
Notes:     This is one of the most irritating items to obtain. It's an
           uncommon steal/drop, though the steal rate is slightly higher,
           according to one source. If you fail to get it, you either have
           to restart from a previous save, which means climbing up from
           91F and spending who-knows-how-long searching 99F for the final
           staircase; or you can beat him, claim the Scribe Crown, and 
           start the entire tower over again to get his Garb the next time.
           Needless to say, I recommend reverting to the last save. 
           Climbing ten floors again is preferable to climbing all 100.

Alternate: N/A
Notes:     There is only one in the entire game. It's in one of the chests 
           that refill with new items after Darkness Falls, hence the [1].

Music Score
Primary:   Liberte wireless (2500pts).
Alternate: N/A
Notes:     This is the item needed to unlock the Musician crown. Just hang 
           on to it afterwards.

Mythril
Primary:   Steal from Mythritoise enemies, either outside Invidia, or in
           the forest outside the Hunting Caves (Urbeth side); both must 
           be at night [1].
Alternate: *Dropped by Iron Golems in Tower to the Sky [2].
Notes:     Two Mythrils are required to trade for other items (Mythril
           Hammer and Rainbow Boots), which means you'll need three total
           if you want to keep an extra one in your inventory. You could
           manage with two, but you'd have to pay gold for the Rainbow
           Boots in Liberte.

Orihalcon
Primary:   Dropped by dragon bosses on 80F of bonus towers (guaranteed).
Alternate: N/A
Notes:     You'll need 10 of these, total, in order to upgrade equipment 
           to the max of +99 and still have one Orihalcon left over.


===========================================================================
 QUICK LISTS (P1QL)
===========================================================================

The above List shows every single item in the game, but most of them are 
not difficult to find. In addition, many of them are available in unlimited 
quantities at the end of the game, so it's not a big deal if you wait until 
then to go hunting for them, as long as you're prepared to spend some time 
on a few of them. The Holy Lance, for example, might take you a few hours 
of killing Wyverns, but the opportunity will never be lost.

However, there are quite a few items that you'll possibly miss out on if 
you don't start your search early, or if you sell the only one the game 
gives you. With that in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to create 
a set of Quick Lists, mentioning all the items that are either completely 
unique or are available in very limited quantities.

----------
- UNIQUE -
----------

These items, to my knowledge, are one-of-a-kind, and they may or may not be 
available in the endgame. I advise you to check the above List early in 
your game to avoid missing them, and once you do have them, make sure you 
don't lose them, because you'll never find another copy.

These two items aren't unique, but the game only offers you a few of them, 
so you should still be careful with the ones you find.

 Fresh Meat
 Trylion's Ring

------------
- FARMABLE -
------------

The items in this list are farmable, meaning you can potentially get an 
unlimited quantity, as long as you're willing to continually face the boss 
you steal them from. Once the boss is dead, though, you're left with what 
you have, and you won't be able to find any more. The three capes and the 
Ribbon are also found in chests, so you don't have to steal them if you're 
happy with just one. See the section below on Farming to learn more about 
it.

 Darkbringer
 Lightbringer
 Claustrum
 Flame Cape
 Ribbon
 Stream Cape
 Wind Cape

------------------
- SEMI UNLIMITED -
------------------

The items in this list start out being unlimited, because you can buy them 
from shops. But after Darkness Falls*, the shops stop carrying them. Make 
sure you get at least one before then, or else you'll never get your hands 
on one^.

*The Wood Shield is actually available until you defeat Satan, after which 
 it vanishes from the shop.

^Several of these items can be found in other places, but in limited 
 quantities, so be careful with them.

----------------------------
- UNCONFIRMED AVAILABILITY -
----------------------------

The items in this list are, according to various sources, available in 
unlimited quantities even in the endgame, mostly as enemy steals or drops. 
However, I have only ever found one copy of these, or I can only confirm 
their unlimitedness until Darkness Falls, after which I can make no 
guarantees. Use this list with caution.

Finally, this list contains items that I have not personally obtained yet, 
but which multiple sources tell me do, in fact, exist. However, until I 
come across them myself, they will remain in this list.

===========================================================================
 BOSS FARMING TRICK (P2BF)
===========================================================================

This section gives details on the process known as Farming as it applies 
to bosses, and also gives some advice on swiping Ribbons from Ogre Bear.

Disclaimer: Not all of this info came from me. A large portion of it was 
found on the GameFAQs message boards. I'm simply displaying it here 
because it relates to Item Completion.

Simply put, Farming is when you take advantage of enemy drops and steals to 
get an unlimited quantity of an otherwise limited item. For bosses, you're 
reduced to stealing, because drops can only be obtained by defeating the 
boss. At that point, the boss cannot be fought again, so you can't farm a 
boss for drops.

You can, however, farm a boss for steals. The reason is because 4 Heroes of 
Light does not have a Game Over screen. Instead, when you die, you lose a 
number of gems, and you revive in the last town where you saved. This means 
that you can steal from a boss, then let it kill you. You'll revive in a 
town, but you'll still have the item you stole. You can go challenge the 
boss again, steal again, and die again, as many times as you want.

There are still a few things to worry about, of course. Obviously, you'll 
be losing a lot of gems if you die a bunch of times. You can fix this in 
one of two ways: Freelancer or Gem Collector.

Freelancer is the job that characters use when they aren't wearing crowns. 
The ability of a Freelancer is to prevent gem loss when you die. So as long 
as one member of you party is a Freelancer while you farm a boss, you don't 
have to worry about losing any of your gems.

Alternatively, you can have one character equipped with a Gem Collector 
accessory, available from the Urbeth Wireless shop for 4000 pts. This 
accessory grants the same ability as a Freelancer, preventing gem loss when 
you die.

It's your choice which one you use. The Freelancer is easier because it's 
always available, while the Gem Collector can take a while to buy. However, 
using a Freelancer means you'll have fewer useful characters during the 
fight, which can make it harder to pull off a successful steal.

Another issue of concern is where you revive. Some bosses are located a 
very long way from the nearest town, and dying means you'll have to walk 
that entire distance again. Unfortunately, there's no way around this, so 
if you're determined to farm a certain boss, be prepared for a lot of 
traveling.

There are a few bosses where distance isn't a huge factor, though: Rolan, 
Lucifer, and Ogre Bear. Rolan and Lucifer are only a few rooms away from 
the save point in Spelvia, so farming them for Lightbringers is certainly 
possible. Many people also farm them for Diamonds, but I won't get into 
that too deeply. Just know that the same basic principle applies, and bring 
a party of Merchants with a Gem Collector equipped.

--------------------------
- FARMING FROM OGRE BEAR -
--------------------------

Ogre Bear is famous for being an inexhaustible source of Ribbons, but he's 
also the toughest enemy in the game, so farming here can be tricky. First, 
you have to find him. He's in the Animal Burrow after Darkness Falls, the 
same place where Aire was beaten by him while she was a cat. After you free 
Lilibelle from the web, leave the Burrow and return to that same spot. You 
will see a swirl of darkness with eyes, indicating a fixed enemy. That's 
Ogre Bear.

Like I said, Ogre Bear is tough; he will kill you quickly if you aren't 
prepared. Thankfully, our goal is not to defeat him; we just want his 
Ribbon. The easiest way to go about this is to have a Bandit with Pillage 
equip some Hermes Sandals. Your Bandit will get the first turn, allowing 
you to Pillage the Ribbon immediately. The Ribbon is all he has, so you're 
guaranteed to get it. Ogre Bear will then spend his three (yes, three) 
actions per round to wipe out your characters. One of his attacks can hit 
the entire party, so you might be killed in the first turn. This is why 
Hermes Sandals are highly recommended. As long as you have a Freelancer or 
Gem Collector, you won't lose your gems, and you'll revive in the last town 
where you saved. I recommend Guera, since that town is closer to the side 
of the Animal Burrow where Ogre Bear hangs out.

It's also worth mentioning that Ogre Bear's attacks are entirely physical 
in nature. This means equipping an Energy Screen will make you invincible. 
Many people use this as a means to defeat him, by equipping all four party 
members with Energy Screens. However, for farming purposes, an Energy 
Screen is not advised, because Ogre Bear won't be able to kill you. If you 
can't die, you can't challenge him again for another Ribbon.


===========================================================================
 POINT HARVESTING TRICK (P3PH)
===========================================================================

With all the items to get from Wireless shops, it might seem like an 
impossible dream to earn enough points for all of them, especially if 
you're playing solo. Indeed, you'll need over 200,000 points to get one of 
everything. However, as I mentioned before, there's a rather simple trick 
you can use to earn points easily. This section covers that trick.

Disclaimer: I didn't come up with all this myself. I pieced it together 
with information I obtained from the GameFAQs message board, and I'm 
including it here because it's useful for Item Completion.

The central idea is this: since you earn five points for every battle you 
enter, you can rake in the points by entering as many battles as possible, 
as quickly as possible, with little or no effort on your part. Keep in mind 
that I said "enter" battle, not "complete". Winning the battle is not 
necessary; you can simply begin a fight and then escape, and you'll get the 
five points. The trick is making this process effortless and risk-free. 

Let's go over the basics. There are two abilities that enable one to get 
out of battle, and both are part of the Wayfarer crown: Run Away and 
Escape. Run Away costs 1 AP, but it doesn't always work. Escape never 
fails, but it costs 2 AP. Escape also requires you to power up the crown by 
one level, which means you need five Rubies and five Emeralds. Both 
abilities have priority execution, meaning they will always activate first 
in a battle, before any other actions, including the enemies'.

Since Run Away isn't always successful, we'll want to use Escape. With its 
2 AP cost, though, one Wayfarer cannot use Escape every battle without 
Boosting. That gives the enemies a chance to attack, which puts a dent in 
our plans to streamline the process. This can be fixed by simply adding 
another Wayfarer. Two Wayfarers can alternate using Escape every battle, 
and they'll never run out of AP.

Now we'll make this process effortless on your part. By making use of 
Autobattle, you can set up two Wayfarers to use Escape, while any remaining 
characters can be set to use Boost. If you weigh down the direction pad 
somehow, you can force the party to walk endlessly into a wall in some 
enemy-infested area, including the world map. They will continuously enter 
battles and immediately Escape, earning you five points per battle. Do this 
overnight while you sleep, and you'll wake up with 6000+ points!

The beautiful thing about this is that you can do it incredibly early. As 
soon as you have the Wayfarer crown, just cram five Rubies and Emeralds 
(easily obtainable in the Horne and Guera regions) into each of two 
characters' crowns, and the process can begin. Some people might call this 
cheating, but earning 200,000 points would otherwise be incredibly tedious, 
so call it what you will.

Later on in the game, you can modify this trick to harvest gems at the same 
time. Simply throw in a Merchant equipped with some Hermes Sandals, and set 
up Autobattle with Finder / Keeper. The Merchant will dig up a gem before 
Escape kicks in. In several hours, you'll have 99 of every gem you can find 
in that area!


===========================================================================
 DRAGON WING TRICK (P4DW)
===========================================================================

Climbing the bonus towers is difficult enough, but climbing them multiple 
times to find all the armors and weapons in the chests on the 70th and 90th 
floors is mind-numbingly boring. You can easily use the Escape trick I 
described earlier to avoid fighting, but you still have to walk all over 
the place to locate the stairs. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a way to 
cut down the time spent doing that? Well, I have great news. I just saved 
a bunch of money on my car insur- ...I mean, there's a way to cut the time 
down significantly.

Disclaimer: As before, I did not come up with this myself. Members of the 
GameFAQs message board informed me of this, and I mention it here because 
it aids in Item Completion.

First, some relevant info on the four bonus towers. On every X0th floor 
(10, 20, 30, etc.), you have the option to leave the tower and save your 
progress. When you return, you'll appear on the next floor after that. 
That is, if you take the portal out on 20F, you'll appear on 21F when you 
come back.

You can also leave by using a Dragon Wing on any floor. If you do this, 
you'll resume progress based on the last X0th floor you cleared. So if you 
use a Dragon Wing on 21F, 29F, or any floor in between, you'll appear on 
21F when you return. However, using a Dragon Wing on the actual X0th floor 
will cause you to resume progress based on the PREVIOUS X0th floor, not the 
one you left from. That is, if you reach 40F and escape with a Dragon Wing 
rather than use the portal, you'll resume from 31F, not 41F.

Armed with that knowledge, you can do the following trick: When you reach 
70F or 90F, open the chest. The item you get is irrelevant, although 
hopefully it's something you want. Now, do NOT use the portal to escape. 
Instead, use a Dragon Wing. You'll return to the last town where you saved. 
Go back to the tower. You'll find that you resume progress 9 floors below 
the one you reached (61F or 81F, respectively). If you climb up those 
floors again, you'll reach 70F/90F and find that the treasure chest is 
refilled! Claim another item, use another Dragon Wing, and return to climb 
those floors again. Repeat as often as you like.

This can greatly reduce the time needed to obtain the 70F armors and the 
90F weapons. Instead of climbing all 90 floors to get a weapon every time, 
you climb a mere 9 floors and achieve the same thing. Just make sure you 
keep enough Dragon Wings on hand.

Unfortunately, you can't use this trick to fight the dragon bosses on 80F 
repeatedly. If you Dragon Wing out after beating the boss, he won't be 
there when you climb back up the 9 floors. You'll have to restart the 
entire tower to make the boss respawn. A bummer, I know. Still, the trick 
itself is incredibly handy, so it's worth doing, even if you can't use it 
to gather Orihalcon quickly.


===========================================================================
 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (P5FQ)
===========================================================================

Okay, so no one has actually asked me any questions yet, but I expect that 
people might, so I'm answering some preemptively.

Q: How come you don't give info on the items themselves, like weapon stats 
   or in-game descriptions?
A: This guide is only intended to help you FIND items, not tell you how to 
   use them or which ones are better than others.

Q: The Bradygames guide mentions something called a Wizard's Axe, but it's 
   nowhere in your guide. What's the deal?
A: As far as I know, this item doesn't exist. No one I've talked to has 
   ever found one. My best guess is that the Wizard's Axe is actually the 
   Afreet Axe (which the Brady guide does NOT mention), and they just 
   screwed up the name somehow. The listed stats for the Wizard's Axe are 
   identical to those of the Afreet Axe, which lends weight to the idea 
   that they're one and the same.


===========================================================================
