  • QUESTS:
    • The shrub fruit
      • Rewards.: Kotegiri + 3,900 exp
      • Step 1.: Check the dead end on B13F-6D.
    • Elval's hobby
      • Rewards.: Metopon + 3,500-5,000 exp
      • Step 1.: Go to B9F to initiate the contest. Kill monsters to get points.
      • Step 2.: Score 30 points to finish the quest, 100 to get 3rd place, 150 to get 2nd place, or 250 to get 1st place.
      • Tip 1.: As you have a time limit, I advice aiming for the FOEs for points if you want to place. For normal encounters, go the B12F for the most points.
      • Tip 2.: Bring tents so can stay longer in the labyrinth.
      • Tip 3.: If you killed FOE's before this quest, sleep at the inn to pass the days and make them respawn.
  • TIPS:
    • Be careful in fighting Big Snakeheads. They can kill a row of defensively weak party members if it uses Torpedo. If you have Antivolt, use it. You can also equip Bolt Charms or use volt mists if you don't have Antivolt.

    • Party at level 30+
    • Stun Guards / Slash Charm

  • WALKTHROUGH
    .-------------------------------------------------------------------------.
    | CURRENT MISSION: Search for Amarantos / Decipher the Shrine's mysteries |
    | Rewards: 8,000 en + 20,000 exp + B16F quests                            |

The goal is to reach B15F and go to the medium sized area on the northern part.
The path to the next floor is straighforward (even with the gates). Navigate your way to the stairs on 7E (don't forget to unlock the shortcuts).
To avoid the FOE in 6E, you have to let it chase you to the area to the left of it, then go around (clockwise) to the exit. After descending the stairs, you can continue with the mission or go back to Armoroad to accept the quests.
Author's Note
If you said yes to Flowdia's question (first time reaching Deep City) you will receive a key item if you go to Armoroad. Also, if you said yes to Olympia's question before, you will receive another key item.
Both of these items are required to see the true ending.

      • Wolf Howl (Gladiator)
  • General Information.: It uses Mist Robe on turns that are multiples of 5. If it is near dear, it might prioritize Demon Kiss. Cold Stare and Devilish Smile do low damage when your party is healthy but do 10x more damage if your members have status effects.
  • General Strategy.:
    • Strategy 1.: Keep your members from status effects. Prevent Order will help you accomplish this. Regroup Tactic from the Dark Forest Sea Quests is an alternative to Prevent Order.
    • Stragegy 2.: Equip 3 bash charms on each of your characters for 90% damage reduction from Demon Kiss. Have Anticold or Ice Mists for Cold Stare.
You'll receive the Moon Key after the fight. If your party is still in shape after the battle, I suggest going to the next floor to activate the Submagnetic Pole.

    • Crush Amulets
    • General Information.: The other bird will go towards you to join the fight so you will probably end up fighting both of them at the same time. Their co-op attack, Panic Rush is the biggest threat here. It hits all your members and can inflict confuse. Their attacks do decent damage as well, so fight with caution. Killing Majordomo first is a good idea since it can stun your members and prevent action.

    • Turn 12: Pollen
    • Turns 13-17: Attack/Tentacle Beat/Frost Smile/Shock/Vampire Kiss
    • Turn 18: Pollen
    • Repeat Turns 13-18
  • General Information.: Seals are unlocked on the sixth stratum. It does Pollen every 6 turns, if it's not near death so it is important that you start casting Prevent Order 2 turns before it does so you can cover your whole party. Its elemental attacks are not that powerful but they can stun and head bind your party. Stun could mean trouble on turns you need to heal or cast Prevent Order. If your members are faster than this beast, then stun is negligible. Head bind is negligibe for your non-spell casters. Vampire Kiss will probably kill a member even on full health so prepare to resurrect.

    • Hoplite with maxed Antivolt
    • Monk with Refresh / Unbind / Theriaca A
    • Slash Charm / Arm Guard / Head Guard
    • Monk with Line Heal / Party Heal / Madora
  • General Information
    • They do their co-op attack, Uzurai on turns that are multiples of 6.
    • The king's skill, Liberation will get stronger the more buffs you have.
  • General Strategy.: Don't buff too much (includes stacking the same buff). This will make Liberation stronger. If you choose to do so, always be prepared to resurrect. You can do stat decreasing moves instead (Eagle Eye, Primal Drums, etc.)

Also, it is a good idea to cast Prevent Order so your Hoplite can avoid the Paralyze effect from King's Grasp Arm. Once one of them is defeated, the rest of the battle isn't hard.

  • Battle Suggestions

      • Spine Blaze (all/fire+all binds)

  • Battle Suggestions
    • Party at Level 55+
    • Element Protection
      • Armors and accessories with element protection
      • Element Mists
      • Hoplite with Anti-skills / Zodiac with Prophechies
    • Prince with Prevent Order / Theriaca B's / Monk with Refresh
    • Monk with Unbind / Theriaca A's
    • Head Guards for your spell casters
  • General Information
    • Death Thunder can petrify.
    • It won't use Liberate much if it doesn't have debuffs/status effects/low HP.
    • When it's near death, it will often do this pattern: Accumulate > Attack > Repeat.
  • General Strategy.: Out of the three elemental attacks, thunder is the most dangerous, followed by blaze, and then freeze. Vine Rush can potentially kill more than one member in one turn, and Thorn Cutter deals a lot of damage as well. Dark Breath is a problem to members with weak defense. If you're planning to debuff it, make sure you can keep up with the 1770 HP it restores.
Winning this battle relies on either killing it fast enough or surviving it long enough. You can use attack nullifying limits, then go all out on the first few turns, or have the best defenses and kill it at a slower pace.
Since it's attack pattern random, you should consider having two Hoplites (or a Hoplite/Ninja with Bunshin) so you can cover two elements. You can tackle the remaining element with amulets/mists. To protect your party from the physical attacks, you can have someone "catch" these attacks with Provoke/Otori.
Save your complete data after watching the ending. You have two choices, continue and explore the post-game areas or access the New Game+ to go for the other endings. If you're going for New Game+, get your rewards from the mission first then save.
  • New Game+ Information
    • Shorcuts will be reset.
    • Quests completed on first run will not available again.
    • The mission "Prelude to the forest" will not be available.
    • The following will carry over:
      • Limits

If you choose to continue to the next stratum, load your saved game. A NPC will be there for some chat. Whenever you're ready to go, head to B20F and enter the warp gate on 1E to reach the stairs going down.
After reaching the sixth stratum for the first time, I recommend reaching Aerial Forest on the sea to unlock the Dragon quests.
