-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello, my name is kippy33, and I am still somewhat new to writing FAQs.  This
is and the Fire Emblem:TSS Armory FAQ the only FAQs on gameFAQs, my only other
is a Fire Emblem FAQ/Walkthrough on neoseeker.  This FAQ is basically as
small of a walkthrough as you can get.  Even the best RPGers would have
a hard time getting the correct squashbuckler choices for this game, unless
they would be willing to miss a few (which you shouldn't).  So if you don't
want something as in-depth as a walkthrough, but want some help with the
choices in this game, then this is the FAQ for you.

1.0 - First version, with basic FAQ and choices.
1.1 - Added Map.
1.6 - Added some more detail into the walkthrough.
1.7 - Some special ranking updates.
1.8 - Added a section for secret swashbuckler choices.
1.9 - Added a question found on the board, written by TankPresea
2.0F - Finalized the FAQ, adding the last secret Swashbuckling boost as well
as correcting the final boosts on Crescent Isle.  Thanks to BLKCrystilMage for
helping me with these updates.

~~                                  4.0 FAQ                                  ~~
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----4.01 What is a Swashbuckler Rating?-----
A Swashbuckler Rating is a rating that will determine how good of a Blue
Rogue/Swashbuckler you are.

-----4.02 How do I increase my Swashbuckler Rating?-----
If you make bold, brave decisions without being too reckless, then your
rating will increase.  It can also mean not to lose your cool under pressure
and be creative.  You will hear a noise after making a choice, indicating
that you made the correct one.

-----4.03 How does my rating decrease?-----
Basically, do the opposite of the answer to the question above.  Also,
running away from battles will decrease your rating.

-----4.04 What are the different Swashbuckler Ratings?-----
From lowest to highest they are:

Vyse the Cowardly
Vyse the Unimpressive
Vyse the Blue Rogue
Vyse the Competent
Vyse the Determined
Vyse the Respected
Vyse the Bold
Vyse the Valiant
Vyse the Daring
Vyse the Dashing
Vyse the Fearless
Vyse the Hero
Vyse, King of Rogues

Also, when you meet certain requirements, you will be given a Special Rating.

-----4.05 Huh? Special Ratings?-----
Yes, once you reach that certain point, you will be given a Special Rating.
They are:

Vyse the Charismatic - All 22 crew members
Vyse the Battle Lord - Kill a total of 2500 enemies
Vyse the Sky Battle King - Kill the 4 "monster" ships, and 12 out of story
ships
Vyse the Extravagant - 1,000,000 Gold + the following items:
-Intercom
-Enhanced Kitchen
-Floor Heater
-Air Purifier
-Yafutoman Alcove
-Soundproofing
-Expensive Wheel
-Chandelier
-Wooden Doll
Vyse the Exploration King - All discoveries, 90% treasure chests
Vyse the Bounty King - Complete all wanted battles
Vyse the Fisher King - Catch 1000 fish
Vyse the Legend - All discoveries, treasure chests, bounties, and Piastol
battles.

>>**THANKS TO MOUNTAINDUD0 FOR THE SPECIAL RATINGS**<<

-----4.06 Once I recieve a special rating, can I go back to a regular
rating?-----

No.  Once you recieve the special rating, you cannot go back to a regular one,
i.e. Vyse, King of Rogues.

-----4.07 What happened to my Rating?  Why am I a fallen pirate?-----
After you return from Yafutoma, if you had a rating of Vyse the Daring or
higher, your rating will fall to Vyse the Fallen Pirate.  Basically, there are
these jerky people who are imitating you.  To get back your rating, you will
have to beat them.  First, visit a Sailors' Guild to check the Wanted List.
You will see that you are on that list.  Next, head to Nasrad to find the
imposter.  He is on the right of the wrecked palace.  He looks just like you,
only he is red.  Talk to him, and after some small talk, you will be in a
battle.  After you beat him and get the money for the bounty, you will return
to your original rating.
