     Hello, roadtosalvation here :) Welcome to my Item Maximization/Checklist FAQ
     for SquareEnix's Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light. In the "real" world I
     go by John and have a strong affinity towards video games (at least the ones
     I grew up with - go PS1!!) and video game music. I'm often found doodling in
     sketchbooks where my art experiments with slogans and wordplay. I also enjoy
     writing reviews and blare music from Game Boy games while driving my car.
    
     Really, it's a lot more exciting than I'm making it sound... promise! (*lie*)

     I discovered Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light through Matrix's reworking
     of Final Fantasy III on the DS. For some reason, I found the first ten hours
     of FFIII to be pretty boring but something changed and I ended up liking the
     game despite its limitations. Because of that, I was curious about the other
     products Matrix worked on and promptly picked up a copy of 4 Heroes. I can't
     say I was bowled over while playing the game but then I didn't know how much
     I enjoyed it until I finished and started some other another DS games. I may
     have been done with the game but it wasn't done with me :) This is something
     I haven't experienced with too many modern games (I have a HARD time getting
     into the current games of today compared to those I grew up with) so while 4
     Heroes isn't as special as some of the other games out there it's special in
     this regard. A new "personal classic" if you will. Anyway, while I was going
     to work on Final Fantasy IV and complete the "Matrix" trilogy on the DS this
     guide kind of interrupted that. No worries though... FF4 can wait for a bit.

     The only other FAQ I've written up to this point is a soundtrack/music guide
     for Wild Arms 2. That considered, this is my first gameplay-oriented FAQ. It
     wasn't planned or anything; I just got the bug to do the work on it. I can't
     make any promises for the future guides (soundtrack/music guides are my main
     interest) but I probably won't write another FAQ unless another game demands
     it of me.
    
     Please note I'm not the same Ashley Winchester as the one at gameFAQs.
    
    ===============================================================================
     > About this Guide *PLEASE READ* .................................... [HOL04]
    ===============================================================================
    
     This is an important section because it explains who should be making use of
     the guide below. A little pompous I'll admit, but so there's no confusion as
     to what's provided here.
    
     In being an "in-depth" FAQ, this FAQ doesn't cover the basics you'll need to
     know to be successful in completing Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light. It
     assumes you're familiar with the in-and-outs of the game's gameplay and know
     the general path from beginning to end. Due to this, it's better to use this
     FAQ for a subsequent playthrough of the game than one's initial playthrough.
     In all honesty, your first time through ANY GAME should be about HAVING FUN;
     not goals like obtaining every single item or turning it into an some insane
     quest like this FAQ does. So do yourself a favor, wait before stripping away
     the fun the game has to offer with an incessant amount of grinding :)
    
     HOWEVER, if you're insistent on obtaining everything the game has to offer on
     the first playthrough and want the story and gameplay to remain unspoiled the
     following is as spoiler-free as one could make it without making it too vague
     or completely worthless. For example, say I reveal the name of a future party
     member. In general I can't avoid this, because some of the notes are warnings
     that are intended to keep you from losing out on items and such.
    
     Additionally, be aware that this FAQ is to be read as is in order; the format
     isn't friendly to the point that you can just pick and choose what to read on
     a whim. Future notes build upon past notes. This guide is also designed to be
     used in tandem with a full-fledged FAQ, such as PiperStarfireGilmore's if you
     want the extra assistance. Furthermore, while some will obviously disagree to
     its value I recommend picking up a copy of the Brady Game's Official Strategy
     guide. It has it's share of errors but there is information within that can't
     be derived from the game itself like steal/drop rates. Due to the concepts of
     copyright protection this guide DOES NOT include these numbers, rather I make
     loose references to them when it is important.

     If you have any questions about this FAQ or spot any inaccuracies please feel
     to shoot an e-mail to me at theaterofsalvation[at]hotmail[dot]com. So I'll be
     able to easily spot your e-mail, make sure the subject of the e-mail is Final
     Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light FAQ or something comparable. I have no problem
     chatting with other players about video games or video game music although it
     should be noted that harassment of any kind won't be tolerated.
    
     Additionally, I DO NOT make use of any social networking sites. You can thank
     some of my self-absorbed relatives who use it to tout their latest, pointless
     possessions. For example, my mother just informed me my cousin's family spent
     a heap of cash on a dune buggy. My response? The usual "I don't care, why are
     you telling me this?" Unfortunately, those words are usually wasted because I
     still get these "updates" regardless of what I say.
    
     Those irritants aside - it should be noted that just because this is the last
     major update for the FAQ does not mean corrections will be made when I'm made
     aware or when I get around to replaying the game to re-confirm everything. It
     will be a bit before that happens (I've played the game from beginning to end
     twice in a row now) and I don't want to burn myself out on it. That said, I'd
     LOVE to do some more documentation on the game. I would really like to do one
     for accessories specifically and I would (as daunting as the task seems) work
     on confirming the enemy steals and drops listed in the Brady Guide as there's
     some obvious errors in there. For the most part the remaining questions about
     the game are related to this but if such work were to surface I would make it
     into a separate FAQ - I have no plans to expand on this one.
    
    ===============================================================================
     > Tips .............................................................. [HOL06]
    ===============================================================================
    
     The following are tips, tricks and suggestions that are intended to help make
     your life a little easier when following this guide. 
    
     1) Beat the game once before attempting this.
    
        I already mentioned this, but the time to aim for perfection is not during
        your initial playthough. Your initial playthrough should focus on learning
        the game's in-and-outs and (above all) having fun. Don't over complicate a
        simple thing. Wait until you replay the game to make things complicated.
    
     2) Don't go it alone.
    
        Before you begin to panic, the above isn't a call for the player to employ
        the game's multiplayer mode to earn more bonus points (which is helpful if
        you can swing it); this is a reference to your in-game characters. Despite
        the fact the game is called "The 4 Heroes of Light" there're many times in
        the first half of the game where you won't have four characters because of
        the storyline. This is important for a couple of reasons, the most notable
        being that you should avoid grinding for drops when in control of only one
        character.
    
        Why is this so important? Well, beyond the simple fact that there's safety
        in numbers I had an easier time obtaining items when I had more characters
        at my disposal. I can't say there's any exact science behind it - it could
        just be an illusion from starring at the screen for so long - but there IS
        a relationship between the number of characters you have and the number of
        enemies you face. An early example of how this works are the Blood Bats in
        the North Caves north (heh heh) of Horne. Enter with one or two characters
        and you'll fight ONE Blood Bat. Enter with three or more and you'll encou-
        nter FOUR. This is just one example but it should be noted that this isn't
        always the case; there are times were you will be unable to manipulate the
        enemy formation in this fashion (you'll never encounter more than a single
        Succubus in battle on the world map around Urbeth regardless of the number
        of characters you're packing) so there's little rhyme or reason behind it.
        If anything it's something you will have to toy around with. Keep your eye
        on the guide below however; I do occasionally point out some opportunities
        that employ this strategy. The more enemies you encounter the more chances
        you have at receiving a rare drop!
    
     3) Use the Hunting Horn.
    
        Okay, I'll admit that opening the inventory every time you want to use the
        Hunting Horn is annoying (they really should have mapped that to a button,
        right?) but it's generally faster than pacing back and fourth in a dungeon
        waiting for random encounters to occur. Also, there are dungeons where the
        encounter rate is lower than normal because of party composition. In these
        cases the Hunting Horn is really useful. To make accessing the Horn easier
        be sure to sort your inventory so it is the first item in the first hero's
        inventory; if you do this you can blindly tap the accept button as screens
        switch so it activates it with little fuss. The only real problem in doing
        this is any potions or attack magic spoils dropped in a battle are usually
        placed ahead of the horn automatically unless you manually assign drops to
        your characters.
    
        Another thing to keep in mind about the Hunting Horn is that it makes some
        enemy/enemy formations easier to encounter. Personally I found Rock Golems
        easier to find in the Tower of the Sky with the Hunting Horn than without.
    
     4) The magic number is four.
    
        Given the purpose of the FAQ, it should be no surprise that it aims to get
        you the maximum amount of each item. Okay, so 99 is technically the max of
        a given item (something you'll probably be seeing on your consumables) but
        since you won't be in control of more than four characters at any time the
        sane number to acquire for each piece of equipment is four. Some items are
        more limited in number and you won't be able to obtain that many (one-of-a
        -kind items are marked with a "*" beside their name) and others have small
        windows of opportunity that allow you to obtain extras. It's imperative to
        keep a close eye on the list below so you don't proceed beyond such points
        and overwrite your game, losing your shot at the item.
    
     5) Points of no return, one-shot dungeons, stores and "darkness falls."
    
        During the first half of the game there are points where certain obstacles
        or events will prohibit you from revisting previous areas. Because of this
        it's IMPORTANT to keep a tab on key items/opportunities. Only proceed past
        these points when you're pleased with your progress and current inventory.
        These points are gone over with great detail in the guide below.
    
        Compounding this even further is the event known as "darkness falls." Lack
        of a better explanation aside, the quest in Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of
        Light can be divided into two parts. Part one is everything before getting
        the Party Host and Hero Crowns; part two is everything after. This is VERY
        important because the enemy creatures encountered during the first part of
        the game (note that this goes for EVERY location) are replaced by stronger
        yet strikingly similar enemies. Once the initial enemies are replaced, you
        lose access to all their drops and steals. However, beyond a few instances
        (mainly boss steals) most of the items are available in the second half. 
    
        Another change to be aware of that is born out of "darkness falls" is that
        most shops offer new wares at the expense of old ones. You must be SURE to
        to purchase these wares before this change takes place - or before hitting
        an earlier point of no return. Once these items are replaced they are gone
        for good. To avoid this, I usually just buy everything a given store sells
        the minute I get to a town. If you've been selling off your extra gems you
        shouldn't have a problem accomplishing this. However, for those like to be
        more frugal the guide lists the "must-buys" and other ways to obtain these
        items.
    
        Last but not least is the quintessential "one-shot dungeon" which is self-
        explanatory. Be sure to raid all the treasure chests in these areas. These
        areas do not reopen even in the second half the game. They include:
    
         > Guera Caverns: open until the completion of the Quicksand Castle
         > Liberte Whirlpool (???): open until crossing the rainbow into Spelvia
         > Rolan's Soul (1): Open until exiting after the defeat of Geri & Freki
         > Rolan's Soul (2): Open until exiting after the defeat of Lucifer
    
        It's in your best interest (and overall sanity) to avoid possible mistakes
        concerning these areas.
    
     6) Don't give up! Just take a break... for luck is a fickle mistress!
    
        This isn't so much an in-game hint as it is a general suggestion. As would
        be expected, waiting for items to drop in this (or any) game can be a time
        consuming and (*gasp*) boring process. If you've been fighting enemies for
        a significant block of time without receiving anything worthwhile the BEST
        thing you can possibly do is save your game and take a break. I can't EVEN
        BEGIN to count how many times I failed to get an item only to take a break
        come back later and get two or three of that item right off the bat on the
        restart.
    
     7) Outside a few exceptions save spare equipment over consumables.
    
        This is pretty general, but since your characters have a limited amount of
        inventory space it's worth noting. When it comes to deciding what and what
        not to keep (you'll likely end up with a lot of extra stuff following this
        guide) always hold on to spare equipment over extra consumables. There are
        some exceptions (Mythril, Orihalcon, Ethers and Elixirs are worth keeping)
        but you can use the additional equipment in a mini-game to make some extra
        cash later. When selling items, ALWAYS use the aforementioned mini-game to
        sell them; you'll make much more money than you would selling it to a run-
        of-the-mill salesman.
    
     8) Selling off spare gems and buying from shops.
    
        One of the biggest problems newcomers to The 4 Heroes of Light have is the
        game's lack of post-battle gil. I to will admit I found that somewhat irk-
        some, but there's an easy solution: Gems. While grinding for drops, you'll
        amass an awful lot of gems. Selling these is your primary source of income
        early in the game. I keep twenty-five of each on hand (save your Amethysts
        and Diamonds however) and sell the rest unless I need to unlock an ability
        on a character. Additionally, keep a close tab on how many of each gem you
        have; when you have 99 of a gem make a quick trip to town and unload them.
    
        Why go through all the trouble of doing this? While it's hardly necessary,
        this will allow you to easily buy the items from the stores in the various
        towns and help kick-start your item collection.
    
     9) Stealing vs. Drops.
    
        For most intensive purposes it's quicker to steal an item than waiting for
        it to drop. An example of this is the Cursed Blade the doppelgangers have.
        Unfortunately - before you get excited - there aren't many instances where
        the items dropped and stolen overlap - even from different sources. Still,
        keep an eye out for these opportunities to save some time.
    
     10) Opportunities.
    
         Opportunities are short-lived windows where certain conditions give one a
         better-than-normal chance at receiving an item. These can include but are
         not limited to: good enemy formations for farming, manipulating formation
         through party composition/numbers or even a simple increase in drop rate.
         Keep an eye on the various notes below to use these to your advantage. 
    
     11) Guest party members... leave them in their bloomers (literally).
    
         This is a real obvious tip, but I'll reiterate it for good measure. While
         the temporary guest party members you run into in the initial half of the
         game are quite helpful, you should remove all their equipment before they
         leave. Some of these characters have one-of-a-kind items you need to keep
         if you want to obtain all the items the game offers and are listed in the
         guide below as a reminder along with when they leave. Take note that some
         characters leave right after battles which doesn't give you the chance of
         accessing their inventory. In such cases, you should swap their equipment
         with something that's easily replaceable before the fight so you can keep
         the unique stuff with you.
    
     12) The Bandit Crown.
    
         I'll go into more detail about the Bandit crown below when you acquire it
         in the first half of the game, but when you're item hunting - enemy drops
         or steals - you'll definitely want a Bandit in your party. It's also best
         to unlock the Pillage ability as early as you can as well.
    
     13) The Wayfarer (no, not the Nightwish song).
    
         While the Bandit is a usually a must-have character in your party, do not
         underestimate the usefulness of the Wayfarer. Being able to escape fights
         proves invaluable in cutting down grinding time, allowing you to pick and
         choose which battles you finish. Alternating escape attempts from between
         two Wayfarers is essentially free AP-wise. The list below points out some
         times where adding a Wayfarer or two may be to your benefit. The Wayfarer
         is the key component in gaining battle points in the most painless manner
         (see "Point Harvesting Trick" in ZorlockDarksoul's Item Completion Guide)
         which you will undoubtedly need to employ to gain every item.
    
     14) Leveling up: the good AND bad news....
    
         In most role-playing games having a high character level is a good thing.
         This isn't entirely true in Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light. Players
         are most likely familiar with the fact that in the first half of the game
         you level-up in a more traditional fashion (gaining levels requires a set
         number of EXP points and enemies also give a set number of points) and in
         the second half your enemies scale with you as does their experience. The
         problem with this sets in if you complete the first half of the game with
         a super high level. For most intensive purposes your expected to clear it
         with a level around twenty. However, if you spend the extra time grinding
         for items it's not unheard of to be a level forty / forty-five before you
         obtain the Party Host and Hero Crowns. This may seem like a good thing as
         you'll be slaughtering everything in sight, but the grass is not as green
         on the other side as you'd think. In starting the second half of the game
         with a super high level you will gain experience points at an accelerated
         rate and your characters will level up like Banshees.
    
         So you may be wondering what's the problem? Well, it's somewhat subtle at
         first but you'll eventually notice that damage and enemy strength are out
         of whack. Normal enemies will hit your characters harder than normal plus
         boss fights require you pay even more attention to elemental alignment of
         the boss so you can protect against it. You won't reach a point where the
         game becomes unplayable (remember you can enhance your equipment) but the
         proceedings will require even more attention than before. So is there any
         thing to gain from this? Yep!! Have you ever wanted to rip through bosses
         like there was no tomorrow? Bosses will fall over like dominos if you use
         moves like Magic Might and Frenzy-fu.
    
     15) Now or Later?
    
         Take note that this FAQ lists drops and steals the first time they become
         available. This is done to allow the player to make a decision on whether
         or not they want to obtain the item right away. In no way should these be
         seen or read as dictations - if you want to hold off on obtaining drop or
         two (excluding boss drop/steals; I wouldn't suggest skipping those) for a
         later opportunity you should do so. In fact, the guide will inform you if
         there is a better place to get an item down the road. In many cases it is
         better to wait; items seem to drop with a greater frequency in the second
         half of the game anyway :)
    
     16) Item Locations
    
         For the most part, this guide only lists the items in each location - not
         where they are specifically. This is not a mistake and is done on purpose
         because this is what full-fledged FAQs like those by PiperStarfireGilmore
         are for. Additionally, some people may want to find the treasure on their
         own but want a guide to HOW MUCH treasure there is in a given area. Again
         it should be noted this guide was created to work with general FAQs.
    
     17) Treasure Chests: 113... 114... 115... the great mystery.
    
         A lot of work has gone into trying to determine how many chests there are
         in Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light and how to get the 100% find rate
         from Cid in Horne. I managed to get it with 113 chests. In recording this
         data I was pretty careful but sometimes things fall through the cracks. I
         say this because there are other sources that indicate that there are 114
         and 115 treasure chests in the game. Since I can't really replay the game
         until I'm done with the file I'm working on now for this FAQ (there's one
         save file per cart) personal confirmation of this will have to wait until
         I replay the game. However, given how much time I have played the game to
         write this FAQ I plan on taking a significant break before doing that - I

         Note: It is generally believed that treasure chests with key items do not
               count towards your percentage total. Gifts as they are marked below
               do not count either.

     Part one of this FAQ covers the items, drops, and steals up to acquisition of
     the Party Host and Hero crowns. This is the larger potion of the game and you
     will have to be aware you do not have infinite access to enemies or the items
     sold by stores during this portion of the game - weigh your options carefully
     and keep your eyes open for good farming opportunities.

     [ ] Gale Gauntlet / Falcon / rare  (Alt Drop: Chimera - Pt1/Arp - Pt2)
    
     Note: Gale Gauntlets are very difficult to obtain at this point with the drop
           rate being less than half of what it is for the Wind Foil and Harp. You
           will have a better chance when you start encountering Falcons in groups
           around Liberte and Arbor. However, a much better opportunity awaits you
           in the second half of the game when re-exploring the Animal Burrow; the
           drop rate from Arps is more than double than it is with the Falcons and
           you'll be fighting Arps to acquire Quaking Harps regardless.  
    
     [ ] Wind Foil / Lizardman (3EXP) / rare  (Sold: Guera - Pt2)
    
     [ ] Harp / Imp (1EXP) / rare  (Sold: Liberte - Pt1/Urbeth - Pt2)
    
     Note: Despite what I've said in previous versions of this guide you can fight
           Imps during the day.
    
     Note: If you're planning to level up Brandt before meeting up with Jusqua, it
           is a good idea to carry three to four potions as there's the chance you
           may run into the Metal Flan. Metal Flans have an extremely high evasion
           stat which makes them hard to hit leading to a prolonged battle. You'll
           probably need some additional hit points to finish the battle which you
           will be nicely rewarded for with 40 experience points and a amethyst!
    
           One can breathe a little easier about encountering Metal Flans once the
           party has access to the Cure Tome; Jusqua has one when he joins up with
           Brandt a little later.
    
     Note: As will be mentioned in the section on the North Caves, you may want to
           put off grinding for drops around Horne until you have three characters
           (or until you encounter Yunita in the Witch's Mansion). This will allow
           your characters to encounter more enemies per fight - thus more chances
           for a drop - and obtain more experience (remember experience points are
           NOT divided between the members of your party like in some role-playing
           games - Mega Man X Command Mission) but for reasons explained later you
           should do all your grinding before getting your fourth party member.

     [ ] Bloody Ring / Blood Bat / rare  (Alt Drop: Blood Bat/Vampire Bat - Pt2)
     
     Note: The drop rate for the Bloody Ring is simply abysmal, being less than 1%
           according to the official strategy guide by Brady Games. Taking a quick
           survey of the situation, there would initially seem to be better places
           to grind for the ring (for example, Blood Bats come in sets of three in
           the Guera Caverns) but access to the caverns is lost upon the events at
           the end of the Quicksand Castle. Unfortunately, these events take place
           before you gain access to the Bandit crown which greatly aids one while
           item hunting.
    
           However, there's a few things you can do to make the North Caves a good
           area to grind for the rings. The first is to enter the caves with three
           to four characters. This will change the encounter with one bat to four
           bats. This can be accomplished with Brandt, Jusqua and Yunita (prior to
           fighting the boss in the Witch's Mansion; it's not a good idea to grind
           for enemy drops after this battle for reasons that'll be clear later on
           ...) Brandt, Yunita, Krinjh and - the most important - Brandt, Aire and
           Torte. As you'd imagine, the windows for these parties are really small
           (especially the Brandt, Aire and Torte party) where you'll be in animal
           form, but it's this group that's your best bet since you'll have access
           to the Bandit crown.
    
           Still, as smart as it may seem to wait to grind for Bloody Rings (drops
           are a little more common when fighting Blood Bats in the second half of
           game) there is a decent reason to get a few Bloody Rings as soon as you
           can. The reason? The in-game description of the ring is somewhat wrong.
           Gaining HP back for attacking doesn't happen 10% of the time it happens
           EVERY TIME you launch a NORMAL attack. Where does that 10% come in? You
           gain back 10% of the damage you inflict as HP. So if your attack causes
           70 damage you'll get back 7HP. This is a great way to make classes like
           Wayfarers and Bandits more self-sufficient in random battles where your
           choice of accessory isn't overly important like it is in boss fights.
    
     [ ] Power Ring / Boss: Minotaur / rare  (Sold: Guera - Pt1/Urbeth)
    
     Note: As you can probably guess, it's not worth your time or effort to obtain
           this drop; you'll have to reset your DS a couple dozen times to get the
           ring and the boost it provides is hardly worth it at this point. Buy it
           at your leisure when you are in Guera or Urbeth.

           efficient to steal it from Mythritoises later in the game. This can get
           you some serious money and is something you'll take advantage of later.

     > Witch's Mansion (Starting Equipment: Yunita & Aire)
    ===============================================================================
    
     [ ] Yunita's Garb*
     [ ] Aire's Frock*
     [ ] King's Shortsword*
    
     Note: Upon speaking to Aire in the Witch's Mansion, you will briefly lose the
           ability to store items due to the story. Two members of your party will
           leave before this feature is restored. Because of this, I recommend you
           grind for any items you're interested in BEFORE reaching this point. If
           you chose to grind after this point (say to increase Aire's level) hold
           on to extra equipment and ditch extra consumables like potions. There's
           an event later where the equipment will come in handy; consumable items
           (unless they are Ethers or something better) are easily replaceable and
           are barely worth any gil.
    
     Note: Upon beating the boss you will be awarded the Wayfarer Crown. While you
           should obviously change all your characters into Wayfarers it should be
           noted that the second ability (Escape) is helpful in grinding for items
           by cutting down on battle length. While you can't pick and choose which
           battles you enter in the literal sense, you can at least flee ones with
           enemies you don't want to fight. This isn't as useful in the first half
           of the game as it is in the second as the number of characters you have
           will be constantly changing during this portion of the game but do keep
           it in mind since it can make things quicker. While you will miss out on
           experience you'll still gain the five multiplayer points a battle gives
           you if you finish the battle or not.
    
    ===============================================================================
     > Town of Horne (Shopping)
    ===============================================================================
    
     [ ] Traveler's Garb (also available in Guera, Liberte and Urbeth)
    
     Note: The "shopping" sections only cover items that are replaced by different
           goods at their given shops in the second half of the game. If you don't
           buy these items before they're replaced (or haven't located another one
           from another source like a treasure chest) they are lost forever.
     
           Unfortunate as this may be, it's important to note that access to these
           shops is actually lost before the second half of the game and "darkness
           falls." There are several "points of no return" to be aware of prior to
           that point so make sure you purchase these items before those points. I
           will post notes on where these points occur.
    
     Note: While the Traveler's Garb initially seems like one of the items that is
           affected by the above situation it really isn't. Granted there's a time
           where you'll be unable to purchase it because stores drop it from their
           inventory but once the stores in the Town of Horne reopen you will have
           access to it again. Upon acquiring the Dark Fencer crown the Traveler's
           Garb (and a few other items) are just moved to the woman in blue in the
           same house. Items that disappear and CAN'T be obtained in any other way
           are marked with "**" beside them.
    
    ===============================================================================
     > World Map: Outside Guera (Enemy Drops)
    ===============================================================================
     
     Note: After your party splits up in Horne Castle, your ability to store items
           is restored in the Town of Horne. Also, the store has slightly expanded
           its wares (see section above). This is important because you won't have
           immediate access to the next town. Handy as this is, it should be noted
           these services do not last forever and are lost when the Baneful Magick
           Investigation Unit pulls out of Horne. This occurs when the game shifts
           the narrative back to Liberte where Jusqua and Aire are.
                  
     [ ] Poison Ring / Basilisk / rare  (Alt Drop: Cockatrice/Basilisk - Pt2)
    
     Note: The world map is a generally a terrible place to grind for Poison Rings
           since Basilisks aren't as common as Big Worms; you will never encounter
           more than one per battle, even if you have more than two party members.
           There are much better enemy groups to farm from in the Moonlight Tower;
           be sure to check out the room on the 4th floor with the Adventurer; you
           will usually fight two Basilisks per battle and the fight with three is
           fairly common. You may want to wait until you have the Bandit crown (it
           becomes available while some of your characters are in the Guera area).
    
           However, waiting until the second half of the game may be best when you
           can encounter the Cockatrice in these areas; your chance of receiving a
           Poison Ring is more than doubled when compared to Basilisks.
    
     [ ] Earth Gauntlet / Big Worm / rare  (Alt Drop: Wyorm/Big Worm - Pt2)
    
     Note: The Earth Gauntlet is so common that there is no real reason to wait on
           obtaining it. The drop rate's actually the same from the Wyorms in Part
           2 so if you miss it no harm done. However, the drop rate from Big Worms
           in second half goes down by more than half.

    ===============================================================================
    
     [ ] Krinjh's Sword*
     [ ] Krinjh's Robe
    
     Note: Despite the fact that it is not a one-of-a-kind item, you should borrow
           (ok... swipe) Krinjh's Robe before he leaves the party. The small boost
           in magic defense can be very helpful at this point in the game. When it
           come to Krinjh's Sword be sure to lift that; it IS a one-of-a-kind-item
           and will be even more useful.

     [ ] Death Ring / Wight (7EXP) / rare  (Alt Drop: Wight 12 EXP, Tokkaku - Pt2)
    
     Note: The drop rate for the Wight's Death Ring in the early areas of the game
           pretty much matches the Ikkaku unless you wait until Invidia or Spelvia
           where the drop rate more than doubles. It's best to hold off but you'll
           probably get some Death Rings if you attempt to obtain a Poison Ring or
           two from the Basilisks. The drop rate drops back down a little (but not
           to the original rate) in the second half of the game for the Wights.
    
           Also, Wights are generally the better enemy to farm the ring from since
           they come in bigger groups. Ikkakus most often come in ones or twos and
           appear with other enemies but the Tokkaku (the final version of Ikkaku)
           have the greatest chance of dropping it in the game; unfortunately they
           are located in some of the game's last areas.
    
           Fun fact: Even though the Ikkakus on the sea and in the Arctic give out
           the same amount of experience and equal chance of dropping a Death Ring
           they are not the same enemy; their other stats are not the same :}

           sword is one-of-a-kind, the armor not so much (you can farm them later)
           but you should take it since it's good at this point in the game. Also,
           make sure NOT to give Krinjh the Earth Sword the Sand Devil drops while

     Note: Cait Sith's will still carry Terra Staves during the second half of the
           game but the drop rate drops by more than half. Unfortunate as this may
           be, you can circumvent this by fighting Neko Natters who drop it at the
           same rate. The only bad thing is they don't come in large numbers. Also
           be aware that you WILL NOT have the chance to buy Terra Staves although
           you'll find one in a treasure chest a little later.
    
     [ ] Earth Sword* / Boss: Sand Devil / *guaranteed drop*
    
     Note: The Earth Sword is a guaranteed drop and is another one-of-a-kind item.
           Make ABSOLUTELY SURE not place it Krinjh's inventory after the battle -
           he'll be leaving along with everything he is carrying.

           first or second parts of the game. Keep this in mind if you fail to buy
           it before the store quits carrying it or you pass a point of no return.

     [ ] Sleep Ring / Lamia / rare  (Steal: Air Ray/Lamia - Pt1)
    
     Note: The room w/the Adventurer right before the boss is a good spot to fight
           Lamias; sometimes there are two per fight. Stealing them later from Air
           Rays while traveling the seas or the from the Lamias themselves is much
           more economical but if you go the last route you'll need to double back
           to this point once you get the Bandit crown.
    
     [ ] Turtle Shell / Aspidochelon / rare  (Sold: Urbeth)
    
     Note: While you'll probably get some Turtle Shells if you choose to grind for
           Sleep Rings, it's much easier to purchase them in Urbeth later. You can
           also (like the Sleep Ring above) double back to the Pirate Hideout when
           you have the Bandit crown to steal them from Aspidochelons themselves.

     [ ] Apollo's Talisman* (talk to Apollo after his parents return)
    
     Note: Be sure get the Talisman from Apollo after returning to Liberte; it's a
           one-of-a-kind item.

     Note: Access to the Liberte Whirlpool is unlimited until crossing the rainbow
           into Spelvia. Make sure you grab all four treasure chests (like the one
           -of-a-kind Earth Bow) before that point.

     > ???/Liberte Whirlpool (Enemy Drops)
    ===============================================================================
    
     [ ] Spring Gauntlets / Ichthon / rare  (Alt Drop: Ichthon/Oceanus - Pt2)
    
     Note: You can also encounter Ichthons on the high seas later when you'll have
           the added benefit of the Bandit crown. Additionally, just like the Gale
           Gauntlets, if you wait until the second half of the game you'll be able
           to take advantage of the higher - more than double - drop rate from the
           Oceanus enemies in the Pirate Hideout. If you wait till later, the pair
           you'll find in a upcoming treasure chest should tide you over.
    
     [ ] Shark Lance / Boss: Brainshark / rare  (Steal: Orc 6 EXP - Pt1)
    
     Note: I am going to be honest here: I am a bit skeptical that this thing even
           HAS the Shark Lance. Other gamers have told me they've seen it drop but
           in all the hours I put into defeating him over and over (which was VERY
           boring AND annoying) I never saw the thing drop and I will probably not
           believe it until I see it myself. Because of this and the fact they are
           very easy to steal from 6EXP Orcs, don't bother trying to get the Shark
           Lance here.
    
    ===============================================================================
     > Animal Burrow
    ===============================================================================
    
     Note: There are no treasures in the Animal Burrow, but upon the conclusion of
           the events that occur here you'll have access to the Bandit Crown. With
           an active Bandit in your party, items have an added %5 to %10 chance to
           drop (for most of the items this guide's concerned with it will only be
           an additional 5%). With this crown in tow, revisit any areas you passed
           over drops if you want - the only exception being the Guera Caverns. It
           should also be noted that this bonus doesn't stack; there is no benefit
           to having two or more bandits in your party.
    
     Note: Don't bother unlocking the Plunder ability for your Bandit. While being
           able to steal from multiple targets simultaneously seems like an useful
           ability, once you factor in the move's horrible success rate it is next
           to worthless. There's another ability you'll want to unlock in the near
           future on the Bandit but we lack a necessary component at the moment.
    
     Note: While this doesn't occur at the moment, be aware that the path to Guera
           through the Animal Burrow is eventually sealed off. Don't try to be sly
           later in the game and think you'll be able to get the whole way back to
           the beginning of the game this way. I'll inform you of any points of no
           return.

    ===============================================================================
    
     [ ] 7/8: Animate Tonic (requires animal form)
     [ ] 8/8: Dirt Dirk* (requires animal form)
    
     Note: Now that you have access to a character in animal form, be sure to grab
           the last of the hidden treasures. Definitely grab the Dirt Dirk, it's a
           one-of-a-kind-item.
    
     Note: With a character in animal form you now have access to the second magic
           shop in Guera. Be sure to check out and buy their wares.

    ===============================================================================
    
     [ ] Flash Ring / Batterfly / rare  (Alt Drop: Giant Moth/Batterfly - Pt2)
    
     Note: You may want to hold of on obtaining Flash Ring or two as the drop rate
           increases two and a half times while fighting Giant Moths in the second
           half of the game.
    
    ===============================================================================
     > World Map: Outside Arbor (Enemy Drops)
    ===============================================================================
    
     [ ] Stun Ring / Mandragora / rare  (Alt Drop: Alraune - Pt2/Steal: Nue - Pt2)
    
     Note: If you are going to do ANY grinding outside Arbor, make sure you DO NOT
           ENTER Arbor under ANY circumstances until you are finished. A few steps
           into Arbor, a storyline event will take over and switch the proceedings
           to the other group. You will have to go back to Guera through the Fairy
           Path if you need any services like the inn or item storage.
    
           Because of this (and the fact there's a point where you'll gain a third
           party member) you may want to hold off on obtaining this drop for a bit
           as there are better opportunities within the dungeons of Arbor. HOWEVER
           if don't plan on using the Stun Rings and would like to save some time,
           I'd suggest waiting until the second half of the game where you can use
           your sticky fingers to steal them rather than waiting for them to drop.
    
           OPTIONAL: NOW, IF YOU WANT TO SOMEWHAT BREAK THE GAME....
    
           Before advancing into Arbor you may want to travel west (than northwest
           to where the snow is located) to fight Mythritoises along the VERY EDGE
           of the snow fields - a blizzard blocks the main portion of the field to
           prevent sequence breaking :) You can steal Mythril from these creatures
           (it's the most common steal) which can be sold in an upcoming event for
           5000 gil a pop. Even if you don't believe you need money (the next town
           has TONS of shops) it is a least worth stealing twelve pieces to easily
           unlock an additional crown and prepare for two future storyline events.
           Also be aware that Mythritoises only come out at night and sunset. Some
           will argue that the following is extreme overkill (well..... this whole
           guide is) 99 pieces of Mythril will net you 495,000 Gil which will last
           you until you reach the hidden shops in the game's optional areas. Also
           of note are Turtle Shells you'll being obtaining when you fail to steal
           Mythril or receive for defeating the Mythritoise - these go for 500 gil
           in Urbeth.

     > World Map: Outside Arbor (Enemy Steals)
    ===============================================================================
    
     [ ] Whispering Harp / Imp (6EXP) / common  (Alt Steal: Arp - Pt2)
    
     Note: If Mythritoises didn't hang out on the edge of the snowfields, stealing
           Whispering Harps from Imps around Arbor would be an awesome way to make
           money. Whispering Harps have an innate value of 1080 Gil (which you can
           sell for at least 1000 Gil in Urbeth). Still, if you're going to commit
           larceny to make money go for the Mythril since you will be making money
           five times as fast. Also, like their 1EXP bothers the 6EXP rendition of
           of the Imp still drop a Harp every now and then.

    ===============================================================================
    
     Note: You may want to avoid random encounters by using a Wayfarer until reach
           the next town and get some fire protection. Hellhounds use several fire
           based attacks; in going it solo you'll want every advantage you can get
           even if you're highly leveled ~ which you most likely are.
    
     [ ] Lone Wolf / Hellhound / rare  (Alt Drop: Garm/Hellhound - Pt2)
    
     Note: The Lone Wolf is another item you may want to wait on. In general, item
           hunting alone is bad idea and should be avoided whenever possible. Also
           given how future parties are structured you will be unable to boost the
           enemy ranks in this area significantly. Believe me, there's a good area
           in the game's second half where Garms - a blue version of the Hellhound
           that also drop the Lone Wolf - grow on trees.
    
     [ ] Bomb Fragment / Hellhound / rare  (Alt Steal: Garm/Hellhound - Pt2)
    
     Note: You'll need a Bomb Fragment for a small upcoming fetch quest; keep sure
           to keep this in mind. Additionally, you don't have to wait for these to
           drop - you can try to steal them as well.
    
    ===============================================================================
     > World Map: Outside Urbeth
    ===============================================================================
    
     Note: Again, make haste to Urbeth in the North. Not only do you still have to
           deal with Hellhounds, you also have to deal with Succubi. Succubi are a
           pain to deal with one-on-one unless you have the right items equipped.
    
     [ ] Confuse Ring / Succubus / rare  (Alt Drop: Succubus - Pt2)
    
     Note: Most current and future fights against Succubi are one-on-one. You will
           want to equip your character with a Confuse Cape so they can keep their
           sanity during the fight. In being able to block confusion most of their
           turns will be wasted on attacks that can't connect.
    
     Note: Personally, I'd recommend waiting on the Confuse Rings. There's another
           dungeon coming up (still solo) where you'll encounter Succubi much more
           often plus there will be other noteworthy drops in the area.

     Note: This is a really interesting intersection of item collection. If you're
           looking to obtain four of each item it's best NOT to sell off Trylion's
           rings and steal them. The 2,500 gil you get for selling them should not
           be an issue at this point if you have been selling off gems and/or have
           some Mythril. If you just want one of each item go ahead and sell them;
           Trylion will give another party member another Trylion's Ring later.

    > Town of Urbeth (Store Event)
    ===============================================================================
    
     Note: Not much of note here. Selling 20,000 worth of items in one day unlocks
           the Seamstress crown (not hard to do if you have some extra items lying
           around.) Feel free to sell off any equipment you have more than four of
           - you won't need it. If you have been following this guide you probably
           have tons of things to sell off.

           continuing the story) you can talk to Yunita in the town square and she
           will join the party. The interesting thing about this is you don't have
           to do this until the next major event. In fact, adding her to the party
           WILL NOT boost the number of enemies you face in battle outside of town
           for better grinding, so it is rather moot. I'm not sure why I mentioned
           it :P
    
     [ ] Old Clothes*
    
           THE BURNING QUESTION: THE DEMON AND THE DARK CAPE
    
           Some players have begun to speculate that the Dark Cape may be the rare
           steal from the Demon fought in Urbeth. Currently I can not confirm this
           until I replay the game (I'm WAY past that point) but the theory is not
           unfounded. There is no rare steal listed for the Demon / Arch Demons in
           Brady's Official Strategy Guide. It's needless to say that some testing
           needs to be done to fill in this gap of information but it's intriguing
           nonetheless. Additionaly, there may be another way to obtain Dark Capes
           that involves the boss Belphegor in the second half but that is another
           theory that has yet to be tested.
    
    ===============================================================================
     > World Map: On the High Seas (Enemy Drops/Steals)
    ===============================================================================
    
     Note: The enemies on the seas are mostly the same as those encountered in the
           Liberte Whirlpool the sole addition being the Ikkaku. If you didn't get
           them earlier or want another pair Ichthons still drop Spring Gauntlets,
           but there's a better opportunity later. Now that you can steal, you can
           swipe Sleep Rings from Air Rays (if you didn't get them from the Lamias
           in the Pirate Hideout) and Ikkakus drop Death Rings at the same rate as
           Wights. The only problem is they do not come in large groups and appear
           with other enemies.
    
     Note: If you want to fight on the open seas for a while, be SURE you do it to
           the SOUTH of Urbeth. If you go try and go NORTH past the peninsula, you
           will regain control of the characters who're in Arbor. Don't worry, you
           will still be on the high seas when you come back later.

           it's their medium steal.

           the party after this dungeon (this will reduce the number of enemies in

     Note: If you happen to miss out on the Wind Dagger do not fret; the Carbuncle

     [ ] Wind Cape / Boss: Arbaroc / rare  (Treasure Chest: The Great Tree)
    
     Note: Arbaroc is the first boss with an item that's worth stealing - the Wind
           Cape. You found one Wind Cape in this dungeon already so you'll need to
           steal three more. That's nice in theory, but how can one steal from the
           boss more than once? It's actually quite easy:
    
           Once you reach the Adventurer outside of Arbaroc's den turn one of your
           characters into a Freelancer (you can equip the Gem Collector accessory
           from the wireless store to circumvent this step) and set the other as a
           Bandit (you can't change crowns on guest characters like Torte). Do not
           equip for "serious" combat yet (and don't worry about the Wind Cape you
           just got; we don't want to protect against wind attacks just yet). Upon
           finishing this set up save your game by talking with the Adventurer.
    
           Enter the den and attempt to steal from Arbaroc in combat. If you steal
           anything other than the Wind Cape (you'll be seeing Phoenix Downs a lot
           of the time) reset your DS. Continue to do this, entering the fight and
           resetting until you grab the Wind Cape. Once you have obtained it, your
           next goal is to THROW THE FIGHT!! Let your characters be defeated. When
           you start back up at the save point in Arbor after your loss check your
           inventory - you still have the Wind Cape you stole! Additionally, since
           you had a Freelancer or a Gem Collector equipped you have lost no gems!
           Repeat this until you have all the Wind Capes you want. Once done, have
           your party defeat Arbaroc as you normally would to continue the story.
    
           Before attempting this, you may want to equip your characters with Stun
           Capes. Arbaroc uses light-based spells when airborne and this can cause
           you to waste a lot of turns due to paralysis.
    
     Note: Torte will leave your party once you return to Arbor and report back to
           queen. Make sure to claim any important items from his inventory.

     Note: Having visited Urbeth, you can save yourself some work and just buy the
           Giantís Rings from Trylion's shop. However, since Borgbears occupy many
           of the same places as Silkys, you'll probably obtain a few rings as you
           wait for Silence Rings to drop (or you can attempt to cut out that wait
           by stealing them but they are the creature's rare steal). This does not
           apply if you've been using a Wayfarer to escape from battles that don't
           have Silkys.
    
     [ ] Silence Ring / Silky / rare  (Alt Drop: Silky/Wraith - Pt2)
    
     Note: Hold off on trying to obtain Silence Rings at the moment. There are few

           easier. Also, you will definitely want to have an attack spell equipped
           to deal with these things regardless of your class; physical attacks do
           not have a good shot at hitting their mark. Silkys also inhabit the Ice
           Caverns; you'll probably want to fight them there.
    
           If you don't plan on using the Silence Rings in combat anytime soon you
           can wait until the second half of the game to acquire them. If you wait
           you'll be able to take advantage of the increased drop rate provided by
           the Wraiths.

     [ ] Mythril / Mythritoise / common  (Alt Drop/Steal: Rock Golem - Pt1)
    
     Note: I mentioned stealing from the Mythritoises earlier in the section about
           Arbor. For full disclosure on this enemy and how to abuse this for your
           own personal gain (*devilish grin*) please refer back to that section.

     [ ] #058: Hi-Potion
     [ ] #059: Intellect Ring
    
     Note: Oh geez. There's a lot to note here and it's all very important....
     
           Once you transform your character to enable them to squeeze through the
           hole in the ground you will lose access to previous locations along the
           path taken by Brandt (Horne, Guera and Arbor). Be SURE you've purchased
           everything you need to from the stores in these areas and are satisfied
           with the items you have collected from drops. You CANNOT BACKTRACK from
           this point (and you can't go back with the other group using the Animal
           Burrow). After falling down the hole you will automatically be switched
           to Jusqua.
    
           Also before taking this plunge, you will need to start planning for the
           next boss. Like Arbaroc in Arbor, the next boss is a farmable source of
           a certain item: Shine Capes. Since you can find one Shine Cape later in
           a treasure chest you'll need to steal three more.
           
           In the upcoming fight you'll need a Bandit & Freelancer (the Freelancer
           isn't necessary if you have the Gem Collector accessory equipped on one
           of your characters during the fight). I would highly recommend you make
           Brandt the Freelancer - you will not have access to his inventory until
           after you've farmed the steal a couple of times. You can have Brandt be
           the Bandit but you need to keep AT LEAST three inventory slots open. In
           other words, if Brandt's the Bandit you won't be able to view the Shine
           Capes in his inventory until you beat the boss for the final time (they
           are there however); if Jusqua's the Bandit you will be able to see them
           the minute you reappear at the save point after losing.
    
           Boy that was a mouth full....

     [ ] Hydraxe / Trollud / medium  (Steal: Trollud/Shade Trollud - Pt2)
    
     Note: There is no reason to wait on obtaining extra Hydraxes - the steal rate
           is the same no matter which version of the Trollud you steal it from.

     Note: As Jusqua, make SURE you save at the second save point right before the
           boss fight. Additionally, make SURE you change him into a Freelancer or
           Bandit - which ever one you didn't turn Brandt into; see note above.
    
     [ ] Glimmer Gauntlet / Boss: Behugemoth / medium  (Sold: Spelvia - Pt2)
    
     Note: Due to the lengthy turnover one experiences when trying to steal from a
           boss like Behugemoth (see the following note) do not try and obtain the
           Glimmer Gauntlets at this point. Other enemies drop them and in the end
           you can just buy them in Spelvia during the second half of the game.
    
     [ ] Shine Cape / Boss: Behugemoth / rare  (Alt Drop/Steal: Behugemore - Pt2)
    
     Note: If you've played the game before, you probably do not have to guess why
           this is one of the MOST ANNOYING steals in the game to acquire. With so 
           many scripted events that take place before fighting the Behugemoth for
           real (fighting the Sorcerer, some more talking, fighting the Behugemoth
           with Jusqua alone and Brandt's arrival) you'll be spending lots of time
           just getting to the point where you CAN steal. If coupled with the fact
           you'll have to do this AT LEAST THREE TIMES (there's a Shine Cape to be
           found in Spelvia Dungeons which will make four) you'll be insane by the
           time you do it. If you want to avoid all this trouble you can wait till
           the second half and steal Shine Capes from the random encounter version
           of the Behugemoth (the "Behugemore") in the Ice Cavern and Star Chamber
           during the second half of the game. I'd advise against doing that since
           Shine Capes prove to be quite useful over the course of the game.
          
           Additionally, don't think you can get away with stealing the Shine Cape
           in the fight with just Jusqua alone. The developers of the game thought
           of that: Behugemoth's items are different during this three turn fight,
           the Potion you are most likely to steal - which is not available during
           the second fight - proves that. This isn't to say the cape ISN'T one of
           the steals during first fight (I haven't confirmed this - sounds like a
           job for someone with more time than me to burn) but with three turns to
           do it seems very unlikely.
    
     Note: With the annoying Behugemoth and Shine Cape business out of the way, it
           is the perfect time to acquire the drops and steals in the Ice Caverns.
           What changed? Now that Jusqua and Brandt are back together, some of the
           enemy encounters are a bit different. For example, instead of one Silky
           you now fight two! A great place to grind for Silence Rings is the very
           first room of the Ice Caverns you entered as Jusqua.

           during the second half of the game. Regardless of which method used the
           Axe is the given creature's medium steal.
    
     Note: It should be noted that even if you do not buy the Black Book before it
           disappears from the Invidia store front you will find one in a treasure
           chest later. If you want to have more than one on hand in the future be

     Note: During the events in Invidia that involve the Dragon Egg you don't have
           to acquire the Mythril Hammer to continue on with the story; you can in
           fact continue on by using a Firaga Tome from Urbeth. However, it should
           be noted that the Mythril Hammer is a one-of-a-kind item, so you should
           give a piece of Mythril to the weapon store vendor to claim it. This is
           one of two quests that requires a piece of Mythril.
    
     Note: With the Magic Key in hand, you can unlock the locked doors you've come
           across in your adventure. While there are a few areas you can backtrack
           to right now and use your shiny new toy the items you can obtain aren't
           make-or-break right now. The guide will cover these areas in the second

           the second half of the game.
    
     Note: While mentioned earlier in this guide, it is important to note a change
           in the item drop rates from Wights. The Death Ring now has an increased
           chance of dropping (more than double than it was before) so if you have
           not acquired any this is a great opportunity that extends the whole way
           into Spelvia (Rolan's Soul).

     [ ] Shark Lance / Orc (7EXP) / common  (Alt Drop: Brainshark - Pt2)
    
     Note: If your going to obtain for four of every item, make sure to grab three
           more Shark Lances. There's one enemy in the later half of the game that
           carries it as a drop (a normal encounter version of the Brainshark) but
           the drop rate is very low.
    
     [ ] Darkness Axe / Skeleton / medium  (Sold: Invidia - Pt1)
    
     Note: If you want to save some money you can steal a few Darkness Axes but in
           all reality money shouldn't be an issue at this point. Do note that the
           Darkness Axe disappears from Invidia's weapon shop after darkness falls
           but they can be stolen (medium) from Skeletons and Trollud Zombies once
           the second half the game begins.
    
     [ ] Ocean Stave / Cowpel (7EXP) / common  (Sold: Invidia - Pt2)
    
     [ ] Stream Cape / Boss: Ice Dragon / medium  (Alt Steal: Ice Dragon - Pt2)
    
     Note: The game finally gives you a break here. The Stream Cape is a breeze to
           steal when compared to Wind and Shine Cape. You should have one in your
           inventory from Liberte Whirlpool so be sure to steal three more. If you
           forget there is another chance during Part 2 at the same rate :)
    
     Note: Before playing the Dragon Harp near the Dragon Egg, be sure to play the
           mathematics game in the center building of Invidia near the polar bear.
           Scoring 250 points playing this simple yet clever game will net you the
           Beastmaster crown.
    
     Note: Before playing the Dragon Harp near the Dragon Egg make sure to unequip
           Rekoteh of all her equipment. She may be accompanying Brandt and Jusqua
           to their next location but you won't have another chance to fiddle with 
           her inventory. Furthermore, accepting the ride on the dragon is another
           point of no return - make SURE you have taken care of everything around
           Invidia. You'll still have access to Urbeth and Liberte through another 
           character.

     [ ] Potion
     [ ] Trylion's Ring
     [ ] Steel Sword (+5)
     [ ] Rainbow Boots
    
     Note: The Steel Sword (+5) does not count towards item completion. Despite it
           being upgraded five times, the game still considers it a Steel Sword.
    
     Note: Before heading into the Tower of the Sky give Mylion a piece of Mythril
           for the Rainbow Boots. There's no need to equip them; you receive their
           desired effect just by having them in your inventory.
    
     Note: If you more or less "stole" Trylion's rings when playing as Jusqua this
           will be your fourth Trylion's Ring. Again, there's no penalty for doing
           this that I'm aware of... except the price of your immortal soul :(
    
     Note: Now that you have the magic key you can unlock the attack item store in
           Urbeth. I'd suggest buying everything you have an interest in now since
           the store becomes a magic tome store in the second half.

     Note: For the most part the enemies on the first eight floors of the Tower of
           the Sky are weak and mainly consist of enemies you've probably obtained
           drops from. The sole exception is probably the Lone Wolf the Hellhounds
           drop but again it's best to wait on those.
    
           Generally it's the ninth floor that contains the enemies you'll want to
           fight. Make sure to use the save point to your advantage. Also, it pays
           to be a Bandit.
    
           This is an ideal area to grind for the Confuse Ring from the Succubi; a
           Confuse Cape is a great addition to render their annoying Entice attack
           useless. The drop rate for the Confuse Ring from Succubi goes down more
           than half in the second part of the game. Other drops include:
    
     [ ] Flame Gauntlet / Gargoyle / rare  (Sold: Invidia - Pt2)
    
     Note: I would suggest buying the Flame Gauntlets later. There is another drop
           you can get here but I'd honestly suggest waiting until the second half
           of the game when you have more characters to get that one.
    
     [ ] Earth Axe / Rock Golem / rare  (Alt Drop: Iron Golem - Pt2)
    
     Note: Despite what I've written in previous versions of this guide, the Earth
           Axe IS obtainable in the second part of the game from Iron Golems. Take
           my advice wait for that opportunity - the drop rate is more than double
           than it is here. Seriously, save your sanity :P  You can also steal and
           receive Mythril as a drop from the Rock Golems.
           
     Note: It should be noted that crossing the rainbow into Spelvia Dungeons is a
           point of no return. Make sure you have accomplished everything you need
           to do in Urbeth and Liberte (you will be losing access to the Whirlpool
           in Liberte for the rest of the game) - you will be able to return later
           but only after some earth-shattering changes.

           from the area as long as you don't defeat the boss. Once you defeat the

           them from the Aire doppelganger - it is the common steal. You will find
           the Aire Doppelganger in the rooms with the teleporting specters.

     Note: It doesn't matter which Doppelganger you steal this from; they all have
           it on hand at the same rate. The only question is do you steal it right
           now or try to get it as a drop from the Ghouls in part two later: toss-
           up!
    
     Note: In case you forgot to purchase them (you can't go back to the stores at
           a point this late before they are removed) you can steal Ice Picks from
           the Brandt Doppelgangers and the Flame Dagger from the Yunita ones. The
           Jusqua Doppelganger have Holy Knifes with them but you can buy these in
           Spelvia during the second half of the game.
    
           In case you miss this chance, these items are available from the second
           version of the Doppelganger that appear within Rolan's Soul during Part

     Note: Two words: DON'T and BOTHER. The structure of this fight makes it a bad
           idea to reboot the game in a vain attempt to get either cape as a drop.
           If you DO get one of the capes make sure you DO NOT give it to Rolan.
    
           Don't worry, there's chance to claim some extra Flame Capes in the near
           future through stealing; it is going to be somewhat annoying but not as
           it would be getting one from here.
    
     Note: Be sure you remove anything of value on Rolan prior to this fight; load
           him up with gear from the shop back in Spelvia or some extra equipment.
           You will not be able to access his inventory beyond the fight with Geri
           and Freki.

     [ ] Lightbringer / Boss: Rolan / medium  (Alt Steal: Lucifer - Pt2)
    
     Note: Despite the fact that there is another chance to steal the Lightbringer
           in the future (the success rate goes down) I would suggest obtaining it
           from Rolan during this fight. Also, if you combine the strategy used to
           steal items from bosses multiple times with the Finder and Keeper moves
           from the Merchant you can use this battle to farm diamonds.

     Part 2: After Darkness .............................................. [HOL08]
    ===============================================================================
    
     This part of the FAQ covers everything from the acquisition of the Party Host
     and Hero crowns to the final confrontation with the evil being lurking at the
     center of the darkness. That said, feel free to take a breather. A few things
     have changed for the better. Your party is complete and will remain unchanged
     and you only have to worry about one one-shot location: Rolan's Soul. Outside
     of that you no longer have to worry about missing item drop opportunities; in
     fact enemies will remain the same for the remainder of the game. Feel free to
     gather Rolan's weapons at your leisure (there's no set order for your quests)
     although I would suggest doing the events in Arbor and Mt. Glug first despite
     the order they're in below.
    
     However, before you head out make a quick trip to Urbeth. Sell off any excess
     weaponry using the store-front mini game to streamline your inventory and max
     your wallet for the massive loads of future purchases. If you abused stealing
     mythril from the Mythritoise and have been selling off gems you should have a
     TON of gil. 500,000 is more than enough to obtain four of each item you don't
     currently have. The only store you won't have access to are those in the Town
     of Horne but that will change.
    
     Also, remember that if you opened a given treasure chest in the first half of
     the game it is still empty. The only exception are six chests within the back
     of the Pirate's Hideout. You did grab those the first time around, right?
    
     Another suggestion that deals with the near future is which attacks to unlock
     with the diamonds you received from the Rolan fight. If you want to make some
     item acquisitions (steals) much easier, I'd suggest unlocking the Magic Might
     attack on your resident black mage (Aire has the highest intellect by nature;
     you'll want Magic Might to do lots of damage) and Pillage on your Bandit :)

           the information is interesting it's the number of Treasure Chests found

           the Ghouls that roam around the Quicksand Castle drop the Curse Ring at

     Note: I just have to comment on how much I LOVE Jusqua's suggestion on giving
           the Shield of Light to a healer. Why? Well, it's not really the low hit
           point factor he mentions that makes me agree but the immunity to status
           effects. It's wonderful when your healer can't be affected by sleep and
           paralysis.

     Note: While on the subject of Hobgoblins, if you missed the Wood Lance during
           your first visit to Arbor you can obtain them from the Hobgoblins; it's
           their medium steal.

           only thing you need to be aware of is the "To the Summit" part of Arbor
           is a much better place to obtain them since you'll encounter Carbuncles
           and Funguses. Using a combination of steals from the Carbuncle (medium)
           and drops from the Funguses you'll have them in no time. Also note that
           if you missed out on the Wind Daggers from the Rattatox your first time
           through Arbor Carbuncles drop them at the same exact rate.

     Note: This is a great time to obtain Lone Wolfs if you didn't obtain any from
           the Hellhounds in the first half. Garms come in groups of three, making
           this an ideal farming situation. Now that you have four characters this
           is an EXCELLENT time to start using Wayfarers; place two of them with a
           Bandit in your party and alternate which one uses Escape while having a
           Black Mage smash enemies with Magic Might when you are not running. You
           can pick and choose your fights and cut down on grinding with this kind
           of strategy.

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

           the Nues which appear on bottom floor the closer you get to the boss.
    
     [ ] Flame Cape / Boss: Belphegor / rare  (Alt Steal: Belphegor -Star Chamber)
    
     Note: I'm sure some are wondering how you can steal from Belphegor in a quick
           and timely manner and no go insane trying to get those additional Flame
           Capes. Well, there is a simple solution; the bad news is it most likely
           requires your party to be at a high level, game beating levels of 40 to
           45. However, given the recent change in the experience system it is not
           hard to level up in Mt.Gulg with fights containing three/four enemies a
           piece. If you've unlocked Magic Might on a Black Mage use it to destroy
           these groups (and the Red Jellies before they merge) with super extreme
           prejudice.
    
           So how do you clear away the three cubes so quick that you will be able
           to steal on the second turn? Magic Might. Have the black mage enter the
           fight with enough AP so you can cast Magic Might on the first turn - if
           you cause enough damage you'll take out all the cubes leaving Belphegor
           ripe for a pillage attempt. (Note: If by some odd chance your bandit is
           slower than your mage DON'T use Magic Might and Pillage during the same
           round. Once in a while a cube will hold on with a few measly HP and you
           will steal from that instead.) I'd highly suggest using Pillage instead
           of Steal. Remember, until you steal the fourth and final cape you don't
           want too much fire protection; your characters need to be vulnerable or
           it will take eons to lose after a successfully stealing the Flame Cape.
           Really, everything about this setup is about speed. Also, you MUST make
           sure that your black mage uses Magic Might on the first turn; Belphegor
           will probably kill your black mage on the next turn after their role in
           this scheme is complete.
    
           Seriously, it's not even funny how broken Magic Might is....
    
           THE SECRET BEHIND BELPHEGOR'S ELEMENTAL AFFINITY??? (*Suspense*)
    
           A scrap of untested information retrieved from Japanese websites on The
           4 Heroes of Light has shed a little bit of light on Belphegor's ability
           to change elemental affinities when struck with an element-based spell.
           Not only does his weakness change in response to elemental attacks, the
           element of the items he is holding (Bomb Fragment / Flame Cape) changes
           as well - supposedly. So what does this mean? Belphegor starts with the
           Flame Cape and Bomb Fragment as possible steals. If you attack him with
           an Earth-based spell the Flame Cape turns into a Soil Cape and the Bomb
           Fragment would turn into a Gaia Drum - an educated guess???? If true it
           would be majorly important since it would become the only way to obtain
           additional Soil Capes. Furthermore, at the moment I am not sure if Dark
           is an element that Belphegor can assume. If he could change affinity to
           Dark, that would (assuming - as discussed earlier - the Dark Cape can't
           be stolen from the Demon + Arch Demon) mean one could obtain additional
           Dark Capes as well.
    
           This is all unsubstantiated at the moment (I had already beat Belphegor
           in the Star Chamber by the time I read the post on the forums about the
           change in items) but I will test it in the future. Again, I am not sure
           when that will be but if anyone feels like testing it out please do so.
    
           *** READER UPDATE ON BELPHEGOR'S ELEMENTAL AFFINITY ***
    
           Recently I've recieved a message from a player who has tested the above
           theory out in combat and found that the majority of this information is
           correct. However, there are a few twists to be aware of. Here's part of
           the message I recieved:
    
           "...to confirm something in your Item Maximization/Checklist regarding
           boss Belphegor's drops. Indeed, aside from his 'normal' drops (Bomb
           Fragment/Flame Cape), the boss CAN drop [the] Soil Cape when his
           attribute turns into [the] WIND element. Yes, WIND, not Earth, as I
           got the Soil Cape right after he used Aeroga.
    
           This is confirmed by me, I just got my 2nd Soil Cape from him (the first
           one from the chest, as you might know already). I have yet to steal any
           Stream Cape[s] from him, but given how Soil Cape can be stolen, I don't
           see why [the] Stream Cape can't. 
    
           Oh, and fyi, Belphegor's elemental weakness can switch around between 3
           elements: Fire, Water and Wind. When he's fire element, hit him with a
           water spell. When he's water, hit him with Aero, and finally, when he
           has wind attribute, hit him with a fire spell."
    
           So, this confirms it is possible to get more than one Soil Cape per save
           file AND disproves that his element can turn to dark to get more Dark
           Capes. Thanks goes to Nobita for testing this out.

           have no trouble obtaining them. Just in case you didn't obtain a few of
           them earlier Arps are a great source of Gale Gauntlets since their drop
           rate for the item is more than double that of the Falcons.
    
           Furthermore if you need Whispering Harps Arps are your best bet as it's
           their medium steal (it is really insane how many items you can get from

     [ ] Icebrand / Lizardhawk / rare  (Treasure Chest: Pirate Hideout - Pt1)
    
     Note: Do due a host of errors in the Official Brady Games Strategy Guide, the
           Icebrand drop requires a bit of explanation. The entry for Lizardman[A]
           is actually the entry the for the Lizardhawk outside a couple of things
           like the picture. Also, in the "encountered" field, I have no idea what
           they're referring to with "Arbor North Area (Part II)" so your guess is
           as good as mine.
    
           Lizardhawks also appear in the Witch's Mansion - they appear three at a
           time in the rooms prior to the Lamp of Truth - and Magic Laboratory. If
           you need some additional Great Tree Swords the Lizardhawk can also help
           you out with that as well if you have steal or pillage assigned to your
           abilities.
           
     Note: Take advantage of the Oceanus enemies in the Pirate Hideout - with them
           appearing in groups of four and having the highest drop rate for Spring
           Gauntlets this proves to be an excellent chance to nab them.

    ===============================================================================
     > Rolan's Soul (Enemy Drops/Steals)
    ===============================================================================
    
     Note: If you're still looking for Cursed Blades the female Doppelgangers drop
           them. They have a greater chance of dropping from the Aire Doppelganger
           (medium) than Yunita rendition (rare). Also, all the doppelgangers (the
           sole exception being the Yunita Doppelganger) drop Curse Rings as their
           rare drop but you'll have a better chance (more than double) at getting
           them from Ghouls in previous and future dungeons.
    
           If you need them, the Brandt Doppelganger's medium drop is the Ice Pick
           and Yunita's common steal once again is the Flame Dagger.
    
     Note: If you've been holding out on the Silence Rings, now's the time to cash
           in on the heightened drop rate provided by the Wraiths. It's their rare

           you need to do this, I would suggest you use Plunder on the first turn.
           Lucifer has an attack that robs your characters of their ability points
           and you don't want deal with failures from steal because of that. If by
           some chance you forget the Lightbringers, you'll have another chance at
           the end of the game but since it is so far away from a save point it is
           not suggested. Unfortunately, you might have to deal with this for some
           other rare steals however :(

     Note: This is another instance where the Brady Games Strategy Guide drops the
           ball. The maps in the Brady's guide show you this area, but they do not
           show you that there is treasure here or - more importantly - how to get
           there. I thought something was up with those maps :P
    
           To get to this area, head over to Invidia. Call your dragon and land on
           the cliff right above the exit to the Ice caverns. When your there, run
           against the south side of the cliff heading east where the mountain and
           cliff meet one another. It looks like nothing is there but you'll enter
           this area instead.
    
           In case you're wondering, this area links to the Ice Caverns where that
           small "step" or "hump" prevents you from continuing.

     Note: While these items technically DO disappear from the store in Horne upon
           obtaining the Dark Fencer crown they're simply moved to the other store
           that can be accessed by talking to the woman in blue in the same house.

     Note: Unlike the items above you DO lose access to the recently re-accessible
           Wood Shield - keep this in mind BEFORE you obtain the Dark Fencer crown
           in the Magic Laboratory.

     Note: This is the last easy boss steal in the game; beyond this point all the
           boss steals are in the Star Chamber and require annoying treks. You can
           also get the Darkbringer from Satan there as well but don't add to that
           workload - steal it now while the save point is close.
    
           Pillage is more important than ever before. You'll need your attempt at
           robbery to take place on the first turn due to the fact Satan's attacks
           are backed with a Lv.2 Dark base. Without adequate protection you won't
           last long - especially if he launches an Arcane Force attack. If that's
           giving you some trouble, try using the Hermes Sandals from the wireless
           store in Urbeth/Spelvia to give your Bandit the first action.

     Note: The Ogre Bear is tough but remember that we don't want to defeat it per
           say. If you run into trouble you may want to invest in a pair of Hermes
           Sandals so you get the first turn. Additionally, you will find a Ribbon
           in the upcoming Star Chamber so you will only need to steal three. Also
           remember that this fight can be used to farm diamonds and is considered
           one of the best ways to make money.

    ===============================================================================
    
     Note: If you missed out on stealing them from the 6EXP Orcs in the first half
           the Sea Devils have a very small chance of dropping Shark Lances (rare)
           after they're defeated.
    
     Note: The Star Chamber is also home to the Tokkaku who has the highest chance
           of dropping Death Rings (rare) in the game. Take advantage of this when
           you can. 
    
     Note: If you've been holding out on the Silence Rings, now's the time to cash
           in on the heightened drop rate provided by the Wraiths. It's their rare
           drop.
    
    ===============================================================================
     > Star Chamber (Enemy Steals)
    ===============================================================================
    
     Note: Although it probably doesn't bear any explanation, due to the fact that
           your crowns are locked upon entering the Star Chamber you won't be able
           to steal or pillage right away. Keep this in mind and defeat the bosses
           with steals you already have (Belphegor still has the Flame Cape, Satan
           has the Darkbringer and Lucifer has the Lightbringer) or bosses with no
           good steals (Asmodeus and Leviathan have nothing of note). It is bosses
           like Mammon (Mammon's Spear) and Beelzebub (Necronomicon) that you want
           to leave until you recieve the Bandit crown back for beating the second
           henchmen. Unfortunately, you'll have to deal with the walk to each boss
           after every failure/reboot which is quite annoying to say the least. It
           is probably best to save at the bottom of B4 - this is a little quicker
           than coming back via Cetus each time.
    
           While making these treks, you'll want to employ a pair of Wayfarers for
           their Escape command. Chances are you'll fail at getting the rare steal
           and won't be saving so there is no point in fighting. It's also a great
           idea to include a ninja in you party to lower the encounter rate.
    
     [ ] Mamon's Spear / Mammon / rare  (Buy: Urbeth - Wireless Store)
    
     Note: If you are going to employ the point harvesting trick ZorlockDarksoul's
           Item Completion FAQ don't bother trying to obtain the spear this way.
           
     [ ] Necronomicon / Beelzebub / rare (Treasure Chest: Bonus Dungeons FL.90)
    
     Note: You can also obtain Necronomicons in the chest on the 90th floor of the
           bonus dungeons. The item in this treasure chest is random however so it
           is up to which way to go about getting the item. If you go the treasure
           chest route you may want read up on the trick to refilling the chest in
           the Item Completion Guide by ZorlockDarksoul. However it may be in your
           best interest to steal a Necronomicon before tackling the bonus towers;
           it proves pretty useful if you plan on using a black mage and the Magic
           Might attack.
    
     Note: In the second half of the Star Chamber you have the chance to encounter
           the Behungemore - the random encounter version of the Behugemoth. Shine
           Capes are the rare steal and the rare drop from this enemy if you're in
           need.
    
     Note: In the second half of the Star Chamber you will also have the chance to
           fight the doppelgangers you fought the whole way back in your first run
           through Rolan's Soul. The Ice Pick and Flame Dagger remain their common
           steals. 
    
    ===============================================================================
     Part 3: Bonus Material .............................................. [HOL09]
    ===============================================================================
    
     Part three tackles the optional areas of the game, namely the bonus towers. A
     heaping helping of patience is required for this section as it's far from the
     most engrossing section of the game. Really what is it with Japanese RPGs and
     one-hundred floor dungeons? Well at least it's not as bad as the Abyss in the
     third Wild Arms - you can save and even leave after every ten floors in these
     ones :)
    
     As for tips that can be employed throughout all four towers, keeping a couple
     of Phoenix Downs on each character is a good idea (so you can conserve AP for
     healing) especially before you obtain some Orihalcon and start upgrading your
     armor and fighting the Doppelgangers in the Moonsand Ruins. Also handy if you
     make use of a white mage is Ensuna which will only cost one AP if assigned to
     a character of that class. Additionally, while it probably doesn't need to be
     said your healer is obviouly your lifeline; make sure they have adequate gear
     for the road ahead. I generally outfit my main healer with most of the pieces
     of legendary armor to accomplish that but the sword of light can obviously go
     to a physical attacker.
    
    ===============================================================================
     > Moonsand Ruins (General Tips)
    ===============================================================================
    
     While you should always be on your toes while battling any kind of foe in the
     bonus towers, the Doppelgangers that start appearing after you climb up a few
     floors are your main concern here. These aren't the weaker ones you fought in
     Rolan's Soul or the Star Chamber: these are the ones from the Witch's Mansion
     when you obtained the Lamp of Truth. They're formidable foes and possess very
     high magical defense. It is a good idea to use Darksteel Shields and the Dark
     Cape to protect against dark damage in normal battles; especially with weaker
     classes like black mages. However, as annoying as Doppelgangers are, they are
     actually useful.
      
     The Doppelganger: Friend and Foe...?
    
     As infuriating as Doppelgangers are in the upper levels of the Moonsand Ruins
     you need to look beyond that to see the real prize at hand. Each rendition of
     the Doppelganger has a one-in-three chance (actually, it is a bit higher than
     33%) of dropping an Amethyst. Amethyst can be sold for 2000G a pop. Not quite
     as much as Diamonds go for (5000G) but not too shabby. If your going to fight
     your way from the bottom to the top take a look at how many Amethysts you are
     in possession of; if your almost maxed out sell some off to make some room to
     obtain more. Remember that fifty Amethysts can net you 100,000G. Granted this
     is not the fastest way to obtain money but if you fail to keep tabs on it and
     have 99 gems on hand and earn more beyond that you're passing up free money.

     Note: After receiving the Orihalcon make sure to take advantage of the chance
           to leave the tower and upgrade your equipment. The added defense, magic
           defense and attack power you'll gain by doing this will prove useful.
    
     [ ] Krinjh's Robe / Boss: Krinjh / only drop (Initial Equipment: Krinjh)
    
     Note: While you can receive Krinjh's Robe as a drop (the chance is quite high
           actually) you can also attempt to steal it if you have a Bandit in your
           party. I would definitely suggest doing that to double your odds.

    ===============================================================================
     > Holy Tree Tower (General Tips)
    ===============================================================================
    
     The Holy Tree Tower is ranked second in overall difficulty. Overall I felt it
     was a step down in challenge from the Moonsand Ruins despite the fact enemies
     seem a little hardier in the hit point department. Like the Moonsand Ruins it
     should be noted that you should again keep a close tab on your Amethysts; the
     battles against Greaps and Brainsharks are guaranteed to give you two a piece
     and it adds up pretty quickly. Cloud Penguins also drop Amethysts but they're
     not guaranteed. When gearing up for the boss on the top floor it is better to
     stick with classes with physical attacks; while the boss does not prove to be
     too difficult it is very adapt at reducing damage from magical blows. If your
     magic damage too low it may be counteracted by its use of Cura and the battle
     will end up a stalemate. (In other words I had this happen and it's not fun.)

     > Holy Tree Tower (Enemy Drops)
    ===============================================================================
    
     Note: Ghouls appear on the lower floors of the Holy Tree Tower. In the second
           half of the game they tend to be the best source of Curse Rings. Ghouls
           do disappear from the enemy ranks the higher you climb in the tower but
           the third rendition of the Wight pretty much takes their place and give
           you another (yet lower) chance at Death Rings. 
    
     Note: Like the original Brainshark the normal encounter version still carries
           the Shark Lance as a rare drop.
    
     Note: If you're still in need of some Silence Rings Wraiths are pretty common
           sight throughout the tower; they also have the highest drop rate in the
           game for the item.
    
     [ ] Orihalcon / Boss: Red Dragon / guaranteed drop (any dragon on floor 80)

           defense and attack power you'll gain by doing this will prove useful.
    
     [ ] Torte's Clothes / Boss: Torte / only drop (Initial Equipment: Torte)
    
     Note: Just like Krinjh's Robe you can steal Torte's Clothes directly from the
           man (mouse) himself. Give yourself the extra opportunity by including a
           Bandit in your party (you do not need an Elementalist for this fight as
           Torte mainly attacks with non-elemental Leaf spells).
    
     Note: The prize for beating the boss on the 100th floor is the Sage Crown.
    
    ===============================================================================
     > Mysterious Lighthouse (General Tips)
    ===============================================================================
    
     The third tower - the Mysterious Lighthouse - certainly throws a wicked pitch
     at the player. Unlike the previous two towers (where you can end most battles
     before the enemy has a chance to fight back if you have a good setup) this is
     far from the case here. Even if your characters levels are maxed most enemies
     will be quicker thus you should be prepared to eat a lot of damage from enemy
     attacks and be able to heal at a moments notice.
    
     Things get a little more challenging once you reach the halfway point between
     the 80th and 90th floors. It is here that Borgbears enter the enemy ranks and
     they (coming in pairs of two) are NOT shy about using Whirl Bludgeon in their
     effort to assault your entire party. The attack (unlike previous incarnations
     of the bear) has a very solid chance of connecting :( If worst comes to worst
     you may want to have a character or two assume the Wayfarer crown if you need
     some down time to recover from a bad battle or skip the Borgbears altogether.

           or you can try hand at stealing them.
    
     Note: The prize for beating the bosses on the 100th floor is the Storyteller

    ===============================================================================
     > Trail Tower (General Tips)
    ===============================================================================
    
     Things start to get a bit tricky in the last tower. One of the earliest enemy
     formations to be very aware of is the fight with four Rattatoxs. Due to their
     extremely high magic defense (even Magic Might with a +49 Necronomicon wasn't
     enough to take them out) and their two attacks per round they can really take
     a toll on the party if they choose to physically attack each time and pass up
     on trying their hand at status attacks. Things calm down when Carbuncles take
     the place of some of the Rattatoxs in that formation but Batterflies are more
     than willing to take up the slack even though they are much less threatening.
     On the seventieth floor the latest version of the fan favorite Basilisk makes
     an appearance and while they aren't to common don't take them lightly as they
     can wear down you party quickly with their two turns per round. The closer to
     the top one gets Batterflies will make their annoying comeback with the their
     attempt to stop the player with their high magical and physical defense :P

     [ ] Orihalcon / Boss: Black Dragon / guaranteed drop (any dragon on floor 80)
    
     Note: After receiving the Orihalcon make sure to take advantage of the chance
           to leave the tower and upgrade your equipment. The added defense, magic
           defense and attack power you'll gain by doing this will prove useful.
    
     [ ] Adventure's Garb / Boss: Adventurer / only drop (steal during this fight)
    
     Note: Once again, you can double your odds at receiving the Adventurerís Garb
           by attempting to steal it.
    
     Note: The prize for beating the boss on the 100th floor is the Scribe Crown.

     Item List: Item Maximums and Acquisition ............................ [HOL10]
    ===============================================================================
    
     Below you will find a complete list of items in The 4 Heroes of Light and the
     maximum number of each item that's obtainable by the player. You'll also find
     the availability (the frame of time the item is available) and if missing the
     item is possible. Finally, the last column gives the reader a quick glance at
     how on they can on go about getting the item. Below that is a complete glance
     at how to obtain the item. 
    
     Note: Not all methods of acquisition are created equal. For example, stealing
           is a listed method of acquisition for the Death Ring but in general you
           should NOT try to steal them. The only stealable Death Ring in the game
           is from a boss; once you factor in things like the low success rate and
           the farming techniques used you are much better off waiting for them to
           drop from Wights, Ikkaku and Tokkaku. Do keep this in mind and remember
           the walkthrough above takes all of these things into account.   
    
           Also be aware there are some items marked as buy that may not always be
           available. One of the most famous examples of this being tranquilizers.
           Players will have to get these as drops and steals from monsters in the
           second half of the game as there's no store that sells them after dark-
           ness falls. (Despite what the Brady Games Strategy Guide implies in its
           besitary there are enemies that drop tranquilizers.)
    
     =====
     >Key<
     =====
    
     "Unlimit;can't miss" - an unmissable and unlimited item (purchase/stole/drop)
     "Limited;can miss" - a missable item and there's a fixed number in the game
     "Limited;can't miss" - usually a key item; unmissable and in a fixed amount
     "Unl/Ltd; can miss" - these are generally purchased items that disappear from
                          stores; you can buy an unlimited amount up to that point
     "Unl/Ltd;can't miss" - like above these can be bought but the opportunity is
                            limited; however, another source for the item exists
                            which may or may not limit how many you can obtain.
    
     Buy = Items purchased from stores; availability may change at certain points
     Mul = Items that are purchased from Multiplayer Store with multiplayer points
     Gif = Items given to you by NPCs; range from common items to key items
     Ini = Items characters have equipped when joining your party; some are rare
     HTH = Items that can be uncovered in the hidden treasure hunts; can't miss
     Dro = Items dropped by monsters in battle
     Ste = Items stolen from monsters in battle by a Bandit
     Che = Items obtained from treasure chests; some will become inaccessible by
           the player if missed initially and after certain events
    
     4+ = you can acquire four or more of this item; an essentially unlimited item
    
     Pt1 = opportunity limited to the first part of the game
     Pt2 = opportunity limited to the second part of the game
     *If there is no "Pt" listed the opportunity exists in both parts of the game*

      Note: It has recently come to light through certain Japanese websites about
            The 4 Heroes of Light that Soil Capes - and possibly Dark Capes - may
            be obtainable from the fights with Belphegor. The general gist is his
            steals may change depending on the last element-based attack he's hit
            with. So, if you attacked him with Quake, this would change the Flame
            Cape into a Soil Cape and after that change is when you would want to
            steal. This is completely unconfirmed at the moment however - (I need
            to replay the game to confirm.)

     The Essentals: Items That Can Be Missed ............................. [HOL12]
    ===============================================================================
    
     Below is perhaps the most important section of the FAQ: a list of the items a
     player can permanently miss out on when playing The 4 Heroes of Light. Keep a
     close eye on this list if you're going to try and obtain all of the items the
     game has to offer.
    
      006: Tranquilizer
     -------------------
      In reality you can not miss out on Tranquilizers but it is important to note
      that you will be unable to buy them in the second half of the game. You will
      have to rely on enemy drops and steals to acquire them beyond this point.
    
      007: Antidote
     ---------------
      Same deal as the Tranquilizer.
    
      026: Hunting Horn
     -------------------
      While it's extremely unlikely, CAN miss out on the Hunting Horn if you don't
      take it from it's treasure chest in the Pirate Hideout before darkness falls
      and the chest is refilled. Again, highly unlikely and most likely the result
      of sloppy play but possible.
    
      083: Krinjh's Sword
     ---------------------
      You can miss out on Krinjh's Sword if you do not to remove it from him prior
      to the fight with the Sand Devil at the end of the Quicksand Castle.
    
      087: Earth Sword
     ------------------
      Technically you CAN'T miss out on the Earth Sword but you can easily lose it
      a few seconds after you get it. Make sure when distributing the after battle
      spoils from the Sand Devil fight you DO NOT assign the sword to Krinjh.
    
      088: Bolt Sword
     -----------------
      You can buy an unlimited amount of Bolt Swords in Urbeth, but once you cross
      over the rainbow into the Spelvia Dungeons this opportunity draws to an end.
      Additionally, you lose access to the Liberte Whirlpool at this point as well
      which is the only area where you can find the Bolt Sword in a chest.
    
      117: Wood Axe
     ---------------
      The Wood Axe presents the player with a double whammy; it is a one-of-a-kind
      item and possible to miss out on permanently. Be sure to obtain it from it's
      given treasure chest within the Guera Caverns before beating the boss at the
      end of the Quicksand Castle.
    
      122: Mythril Hammer
     ---------------------
      Another item that is easy to miss if you don't follow Brandt's advice on the
      Dragon Egg in Invidia. To acquire the hammer give the town's weapon dealer a
      piece of Mythril after the party finishes their conversation on how to hatch
      the egg. Sleep at the inn and return to the vendor to recieve the hammer.
    
      120: Darkness Axe
     -------------------
      It's impossible to miss out on the Darkness Axe; what you can miss out on is
      making the acquisition of them as painless as possible. Darkness Axes can be
      purchased in Invidia during the first half of the game prior to boarding the
      Dragon to Spelvia. They can be stolen from Skeletons (in Underground Invidia
      or on the world map) before this as well. There are no stores that carry the
      Darkness Axe in the second portion meaning if you passed them up you'll have
      to rely on stealing them (from Skeletons and Trollud Zombies) to add them to
      your arsenal.
    
      134: Black Book
     -----------------
      Technically you can't miss out on the Black Book - there's one in a treasure
      that is always obtainable. What you CAN miss out on is having more than one.
      If you want to have more than one Black Book available later, be sure to buy
      some in Invidia before boarding the Dragon to Spelvia.
    
      148: Claustrum
     ----------------
      The Claustrum is the rare steal from Mammon in the Sun Temple. This fight is
      the only source of the item (her steals change during her second appearance) 
      and the opportunity is lost once she is defeated. Be sure to use the farming
      techniques for bosses to get more than one!
    
      171: Earth Bow
     ----------------
      The situation that presides over the Wood Axe goes for the Earth Bow; a one-
      of-kind-item in a treasure chest that rests in a location that is eventually
      sealed off: the Liberte Whirlpool (???). As long as you have not crossed the
      rainbow into the Spelvia Dungeons you can go back and get it but beyond this
      point the item is lost.
    
      175: Stardust Bow
     -------------------
      The story behind the Stardust Bow is simple; it is sold in Spelvia up to the
      point where the party leaves after acquiring the Party Host and Hero crowns.
      The store's inventory will change after this point and the Stardust Bow will
      be lost if you didn't acquire it prior. 
    
      188: Shining Harp
     -------------------
      The Shining Harp is just like the Black Book above. It's sold in Spelvia for
      a limited time (until the Party Host and Hero crowns) but can be obtained in
      the Spelvia's hidden treasure hunt. So no matter what you do - less you sell
      it - you'll have access to at least one. If you want more than that you will
      definitely want to buy them while you can.
    
      194: Knife
     ------------
      If you are looking to obtain all the items in the game, you MUST buy a Knife
      from Liberte or Urbeth before hitting a point of no return like the boarding
      the Dragon in Invidia or crossing the rainbow into the Spelvia Dungeons. The
      stores that carry the Knife do not carry it in the second half of the game.
    
      197: Flame Dagger
     -------------------
      Truth be told you can't miss the Flame Dagger; you can steal it from certain
      versions of the Yunita Doppelganger. However, you can just make it easier on
      yourself and remember to buy it before it disappears from the storefronts in
      Invidia and Liberte.
    
      198: Ice Pick
     ---------------
      Same deal as the Flame Dagger only it's stolen/dropped from certain versions
      of the Brandt Doppelganger. Make your life easier by buying it in Invidia or
      Urbeth before proceeding past a point of no return.
    
      202: Stun Stiletto
     --------------------
      Just like the Knife you'll need to buy the Stun Stiletto before you complete
      the first half of the game - or more specifically - before you transform and
      enter the hole in the ground in the Ice Caverns as Brandt. It's dropped from
      the items stocked by the store in Arbor when you revisit later.
    
      210: Wood Shield
     ------------------
      The Wood Shield is truely interesting because it's availability varies a few
      times over the adventure. First off all, you CAN NOT miss the Wood Shield as
      one is found in a chest in Horne Castle. You can also buy them at this point
      but as most know that doesn't last long. One you reach Urbeth and beyond you
      will have the chance to buy them again but chance doesn't last either as the
      shield is dropped from that store in the second half. Upon retrieving all of
      Rolan's legendary weapons it becomes available in Horne again but ONLY until
      you obtain the Dark Fencer crown. After this the shield's lost again and NOT
      moved to the other store one can access by talking to the woman in blue. So,
      as you can see, you will have several chances to buy Wood Shields but in the
      end the chances are limited and could can cause you to miss out on obtaining
      more than one.
      
      227: Elementalist Robe
      228: Ranger Outfit
     --------------------
      The situation faced with the Elementalist Robe and Ranger Outfit is pretty a
      common one. Basically, you should buy these in Inivdia or Spelvia before the
      acquisition of the Party Host/Hero crowns since the stores that carried them
      won't in the second half.
    
      305: Stream Cape
     ------------------
      Unlikely as it may be (it's really an extreme case scenario) if you miss the
      Stream Cape in the Liberte Whirlpool - by proceeding past the rainbow - fail
      to get it as a drop from Freki and don't steal it from the either Ice Dragon
      you CAN miss out on the Stream Cape. That's a lot of screw-ups however.
    
      330: Silence Cape
      335: Sleep Cape
     -----------------
      Just like the Stun Stiletto you need to buy these before proceeding past the
      point of no return in the Ice Caverns with Brandt. They're only available in
      Arbor before darkness falls. 
    
      342: Apollo's Talisman
     ------------------------
      I'll be honest here; I'm not really sure what the cutoff point for this item
      is. Failing that, just be sure to talk to Apollo in Liberte when his parents
      return from being rescued from the Pirate Hideout.
    
      343: Inherited Ring
     ---------------------
      This is another item where knowing the true cutoff point is hard to discern.
      Well, there is a certain point where you obviously lose out on the item; the
      moment you talk to Aire in the Witch's Mansion, but the chance could be lost
      before this. Just to be safe talk to Kuore after talking with King Horne but
      before leaving town for the first time to go to the Witch's Mansion.
    
      344: Trylion's Ring
     ---------------------
      To be honest you shouldn't miss out on obtaining at least ONE Trylion's Ring
      but if you fail to talk to Trylion as Yunita in Urbeth you could miss out if
      you didn't swipe the three she gave to Jusqua. Again, there is no penalty in
      not selling off the initial batch!
    
      345: Rainbow Boots
     --------------------
      You can't miss the Rainbow Boots, you'll need them to proceed with the story
      and you will be able to trade for them when that time comes. However, if you
      want more than one pair you will need to buy them in Liberte before you make
      your trek across the rainbow into Spelvia.
    
      116: Stormaxe / 130: Book of Sylph / 132: Book of Ramuh / 238: Shaman Robe
     ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
      These items are of note because while it seems they disappear from the Horne
      store they're moved to the other store that one can access by talking to the
      woman in blue in the same house. HOWEVER, as was mentioned earlier, the Wood
      Shield FAILS to make this transition.

                           as well as the list of the items that are lost from the
                           game's shops were more than helpful. I'm sure the guide
                           would have been even more helpful if I did not have the
                           had the Official Brady Games Strategy Guide on hand for
                           my first playthrough. This document is also designed to
                           work in tandem with that FAQ hence the format and order
                           of events and items.
    
     ZorlockDarksoul: For his Item Completion FAQ and some answers in the archives
                      that informed me of the secret entrance for the Ice Caverns.
                      Because it was buried on the board I included it in the FAQ.
                      He also reminded me of some of the spells certain characters
                      start out with. 
    
     Dragon Fogel: For pointing out you don't lose access to the Liberte Whirlpool
                   until you cross the rainbow into Spelvia Dungeons.
    
     ShadowofGlenn: His work on his 100% Completion Guide was more than helpful in
                    giving me a method to double check my work.
    
     Nobita: For testing out and confirming the Soil Cape theory on Belphegor. Was
             more than helpful.
    
     FF4HoL GameFAQs Board: While I can't really remember which members posted the
                            tricks (like how you steal from bosses more than once)
                            I'm sure they'll be helpful in creating this document.
    
     SquareEnix: I'll bite my tongue on some certain things and just say I'm happy
                 that a game like The 4 Heroes of Light managed to make it here to
                 America. Again, it's probably the newest title I've liked despite
                 it's older playing style.
    
     Matrix: For developing Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light and their work on
             Final Fantasy III on the DS.
    
     Brady: The Brady Games Strategy Guide was very useful despite it is problems.
            A good bit of the information in this guide would have been impossible
            to extrapolate from the game itself so for that reason I would suggest
            buying it. Again, I won't be making direct references to drop rates to
            maintain a healthy boundary due to copyright. Additionally, if not for
            their strategy guide I might not have bought the game to begin with.
    
     Nintendo: For creating the Nintendo DS. I am not quite the Nintendo fan I was
               when the Super Nintendo was out but their handhelds tend to be more
               attractive than their consoles these days.
    
     Video Game X-Change: An GREAT mom and pop store that has replaced Gamestop in
                          my heart and mind. As you would expect, it's SO nice not
                          to have to go on e-Bay for older games and shell out for
                          overpriced titles (Mega Man VII is NOT worth $70-80 IMO)
                          and the store is the reason my collection - and interest
                          in gaming - has rebounded from the point of extinction.
