2. UPDATES

30.04.2004:
-----------
Version 1.0 of the document is online at
http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/gamecube/game/32812.html.
For now it´s including the main Walkthrough and some F.A.Q.s.
Note that the walkthrough is based on two times of playing through for now.
I will update it with new information as often I play the game again.


23.07.2004:
-----------
Version 1.2 of the document is online.
I changed the layout a bit and included more information on bosses as
well as items to find. I put in the alternate route on Sylvarant and
how to get Kratos back as well as new F.A.Q.s.
More to come if my copy of the US Version has finally arrived.


26.07.2004:
-----------
Version 1.22 is online. Just fixed the names of the main characters
as well as some bad spelling. Also changed some info according to
all who mailed me. Added some more bosses data as well.
Still don´t have my US copy >_<


05.08.2004:
-----------
First I wanted to make a major update after I beat the US game.
But since I have so little time to play during the summer I decided
to make a few smaller updates as I progress.
This Version 1.25 includes spelling fixes and
an updated walkthrough from Part I to Part II.1 !


29.08.2004:
-----------
Back from my holidays! Just a very small update.
Updated the walktrough part II.2 only.


26.09.2004:
-----------
Updated almost everything according to the US release now.
Included item names and rewrote some silly parts.
As I´m very busy at working in my "real-life" these days
it is rather improbably that I will update this again in the near future!



______________________________________________________________________________





3. INTRO

About this piece of work:
-------------------------
First of all, I am from Germany and learned to speak and write in English
during school so don´t expect very intelligent and clean language.
As mentioned above I just played the game two times and took notes
about what I did and where I went.
When I got some time I wrote simple sentences
with instructions forming some kind of walkthrough.
You won´t find any explanation about the progress of the story or
about character development in here. This text will only concentrate
on "where to go" and "what to do".
In the F.A.Q. section I will answer some general as well as in-depth questions
so expect some spoilers in there. Expect the guide become much more helpful
and informative when I finally get my hands on the U.S. release of the game.



______________________________________________________________________________




About the game:
---------------
During the game you control Lloyd and his friends on their quest
to save two worlds at once. On your way you meet up to 8 playable characters
(with Lloyd you come to 9 altogether) which all have their own feelings and
background story. Unlike other Rpgs you are really drawn into
the game´s universe. During the game you have very much (voiced-) dialogue
and several side-quests and optional events.
Also expect story-twists and tragic events as the story progresses.




______________________________________________________________________________





4. BASIC INFORMATION:

The heroes:
-----------

==Lloyd Irving==
The red-dressed junior swordsman is your main character.
He lives along with his friends Colette and Genis
in the peaceful village of Iselia.
But on one day all of his life changes as he accompanies
Colette on her journey.
You´ll use him about 90% of the game although you
don´t need to put him in your active party.
He can equip a pair of swords
and execute multi-hit attacks as well as special sword skills.


==Colette Brunel==
This blonde girl is chosen to be the maiden to rescue the world.
She is kind of clumsy and seems to be not
very happy with her mission at first.
She is the main character along with Lloyd and despite her cute appearance
a good fighter as well. She uses Chakrams to throw at the enemies as
well as attack skills. She can also learn Light-elemental based magic.


==Genis Sage==
Lloyds best friend is the youngest member of the party and appears
like some kind of mischief maker.
In fact he is a friendly and helpful person
and will do his best to help Colette on her quest.
He gets very attracted to a certain pink-haired girl later.
Genis is your usual black mage.
While he´s not a strong physical attacker,his magic makes up for that.
He can learn several spells of all kinds of elements.


==Raine Sage==
Genis´ older sister takes the role of a teacher in the beginning.
Lloyd calls her Sensei through the game.
As she and Genis have to live without
their parents she took the burden of raising her brother for herself.
She likes to freak-out sometimes if Genis dosen´t behave.
Her hobbies are all kinds of relics.
Raine is your white mage and can use helpful defensive magic
along with some light-elemental attack spells.


==Kratos Aurion==
The mysterious swordsman helps Lloyd in the events at Martel Shrine.
He functions as Colettes bodyguard at first and has some good advice for Lloyd.
Their relationship will change through the game and you can say
that they become kind of rivals.
Kratos is a strong fighter with his sword and shield.
He learns sword skills as well as black magic.


==Sheena==
Sheena is a ninja from Tethe'Alla and wants to assassinate Colette.
Later she will change her mind and become a helpful friend of the others.
Sheena is accompanied by her little spirit "Collin".
She has basic fighting abilities but also supporting skills.
She will challenge several spirits through the game which she can
summon after they are defeated.


==Zelos Wilder==
The worlds greatest heartbreaker meets Lloyd and his friends in Meltokio.
He likes to score on women and is a friendly character.
Nevertheless his sometimes childish behaviour isn´t that often
appreciated by his friends.
He can use the same equipment as Kratos and learns the same skills.
Expect to have only one of them in your party at a time...


==Presea Combatir==
While Presea looks like an innocent girl she is very strong and
very introverted as well. She takes the job of her father as a lumberjack.
She lives alone in a house in the village of Ozett and appears
like a cold-hearted and sad person. She is a good fighter with the axe
and uses special fighting skills for great damage.


==Regal Bryant==
The last character that joins your party on Tethe'Alla.
Regal is a mysterious middle-aged man with a dark past.
As he has the burden of living with cuffed hands
he relies on his feet in battles.
He is a master of martial arts and can deal heavy damage with the
plates on his shoes.
He also can learns some healing spells to aid his allies
which makes him a very good addition to your group.



______________________________________________________________________________





Some NPCs:
----------

==Botta==
The first bad guy you meet is Botta a leader of the Dezaian forces.
He has the duty to hinder Colette on her quest
and does so with the help of his soldiers.
You have to fight him two times in the game.


==Remiel==
As Colette and her friends visit the Shrine of Martel
suddenly an angel-like person appears.
Remiel tells Colette about her quest and grants her new power.
You meet him again several times at the other shrines on Sylvarant.


==Yggdrasil==
As your party arrives at the Tower of Salvation on Sylvarant
the real bad guy of the game appears.
I will not tell you more details as I want to
keep major spoilers out of this document :-p !


==Altessa==
Altessa is an old man living in a house near Ozett on Tehte'Alla.
At first he seems to be unwillingly to help you
but later you´ll visit him very often and many important
scenes take place at his home.
He lives together with a green-dressed girl
who seems to be rather unimportant in the story...


==Mithos==
After an accident in Ozett you find a blonde boy who
befriends with your party and especially Genis.
He travels with you for some time and plays a
major role towards the end of the game.





______________________________________________________________________________





How to play:
------------

Like in other RPGs you can walk through the world visiting towns and dungeons,
meeting people and fighting monsters.
But ToS focuses more than other games on character development and
storytelling. Whenever you see a little Z Button
flashing in the corner of the screen, press Z to view a "Skit".
Skits are short or longer speeches between the members of your party.
Sometimes they chat and sometimes they talk about things to do etc.




______________________________________________________________________________





--------------
The game MENU:
--------------

On the front page you see your party’s portraits.
Push A over one of them to make this you "leading character".
You will see this leading character on the field.
Push Y to switch the order.
The first four are your active party and will do the battles.
The very first one will be your manual controlled character.



Top row from left to right:
---------------------------

==TECH==
Change the characters skills to use, see the number
of how often you used a skill etc.
Press R or L to switch between your characters.
Push START to view the information about the selected skill.
Push X to forget a skill and make room for new ones.
Push Y to deactivate skills for your CPU controlled allies.


==UNISON==
Change the skills you can use for Unisons attacks.
To use Unison combos you need to equip the necessary skills for them.


==TACTICS==
Select from three predefined tactics (the 3 options at the top).
You can also edit these tactics and save them under new names.
The graphic below shows how active/passive your characters will behave.


==STATUS==
View information about the characters and change their current title.
Titles can be acquired in events and determine
which stats will rise at Level Ups. Push down the C-Stick to see
the special abilities for the character gained from equipment.


==LOG==
Here you can list information about the events occurred.





Lower row from left to right:
-----------------------------

==ITEM==
Check your actual items.
Push L or R to cycle through several categories.
Push A to use a selected item or X to throw it away.
You can only carry 20 pieces per item!


==EX SKILLS==
During the game you´ll find ExGems form Level 1 to 4.
Equip up to 4 per character and choose
from 2 T-Type and 2 S-Type abilities.
These give you some bonus abilities in battles.
Some abilities will grant you EX Skills if combined right.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Example: Exskill A needs ability X and Y.			    |
Equip both and fight one battle to get EX Skill A.		    |
								    |
Change your abilities to learn more.				    |
Higher Level EX Gems will give you better abilities and		    |
also mightier EX Skills. But beware: EX Skill A will only be active |
if you keep abilities X and Y equipped (as for my example)!	    |
Some EX Skills will use the same abilities though so it is possible |
to have about 3 EX Skills activated in average.			    |
(Sometimes more sometimes less)					    |
--------------------------------------------------------------------

==EQUIP==
Change the equipment for your party.
Push START to see which stats are changed by the items.


==COOKING==
Select the character who should cook you a meal after a battle.
When you meet the wandering Chef in the game he will grant
you new recipes you can cook. Cooking after a battle will give you
back more HP and TP and may change your status for the next battle.


==OPTIONS==
Save your game or load your game.
The third choice brings up the option screen.




______________________________________________________________________________





Controls in DUNGEONS:
---------------------

In dungeons you can see the enemies and avoid them if you want to.
You can also shoot them with the "Sorcerers Ring"
by pressing X. This will stun them for some time.
The power of the ring can be changed in the
dungeons and will help you to solve the puzzles.
Press Y for the menu and A to use objects.
You can find many treasure chests in the dungeons as well.
To save in a dungeon you have to find some special gem to activate
the local save point. This gem will be carried by an enemy
so make sure to fight every enemy walking around at least once.
Push Z to view skits (Dialogue scenes) if you see
a little Z flashing in the corner.



______________________________________________________________________________





Controls in TOWNS:
------------------

Walk around and talk to people. Buy items in shops or sleep at the Inn.
Some blacksmiths give you the option to
forge items by using the required other items.
Push A to interact with people etc. Push Z to view skits if available.
Push X to shoot your ring (has no real use in towns).




______________________________________________________________________________





Controls on the OVERWORLD:
--------------------------

Push START to switch your mini-map from small to big or deactivate it.

Push A near cities to enter them.

Push Y to reach the menu screen.

Push X to ride Noishu.

Push Z to view skits (Dialogue scenes).

Push R or L to rotate the camera.

Push B at piers to use your boat (later in the game)

Push B to start/stop flying your Rhea-Birds (later in the game)

Push left or right on the digital controls to view the world map in full screen.

You can find "Relationship Skit-Points" on the over world.
These are highlighted objects and if you touch them a special skit will occur.
In these you can rise or lower the relationship between Lloyd and one
of your other members based on the answers you choose during the dialogue.

On the map you´ll see small as well as big enemies walking around.
Touch them to engage them in battle.




______________________________________________________________________________





Controls in BATTLE:
--------------------

Push START to pause the battle.

Push A to attack with your weapon. Combine A with the analogue control
for different hits. Try to achieve multiple hits.

Your default attack with Lloyd for example should be
"Forward + A" and then A two times.

Try to get used to fight with your other characters manually as well.
For example Kratos can hit even more often as Lloyd with correct timing.

Push B to perform a skill with your character.
You can assign 4 skills in the menu for "UP+B" "Down+B" "Left+B" and "Right+B".
You can assign 2 more skills to the C-Stick but
also 2 quick-skills for other allies.
Just change the character when selecting the skill
for "C upward" or "C downward".

Push R or to change the targeted enemy.

Push L to switch to "Reverse Formation".

Push X to defend. You can also use achieve a special skill

which must be used by the characters.

Example: C1 uses skill X and C2 uses skill Y then the combo consisting  |
of the skills X and Y will be used.					|
If C1 uses skill Z instead of X then the combo won’t be used!		|

next to the gap to create a bridge.
Cross the new bridge and check the vending machine.

If you get wiped out,take out the drones first as        |
they go after your allies.				 |
---------------------------------------------------------

After he´s history you get to see another breathtaking explosion.
You end up in ASGARD after the scenes.
Leave the Inn and go up the big stairs to
meet the imposters again.

Leave the Inn once more and go to
the house in a wall below the one of Aisha and Linar.
You can meet Harley in the right room.
He gives you a special item (7).
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the scene you can choose one of your members
to go with Lloyd and Colette.
With Lloyd you go all the way upstairs,
take the helmet (1) and go through the door.

First Puzzle:
-------------
In this room you shoot the red curtain with the ring.
The beam of light that appeared has to hit the orb to the right.
To achieve this you just have to push the box into the light until the
reflected light hits the orb. It´s easier as it sounds like!
A door opens and you can go in the next room, save and use the machine there
to switch groups.

Second Puzzle:
--------------
With the other party go north and burn the curtain here
and push the box in the light like before.

Third Puzzle:
-------------
In the next hall the puzzle is more complex but just look which box reflects
the light in which way and then arrange them so that all orbs are hit.
Take the items (2,3,4) and go north.
Take the Chakrams here (5) and go right and in the next room go south.
Head upstairs to the next floor.

In the upper hall you take the items (6,7).
Go over the bridge to some teleports.
Now you can regroup and face the boss but don´t forget to save!

-Strong against: Fire,Lightning,Light                    |
---------------------------------------------------------|
Bad luck that you won´t have any Dark-elemental spell 	 |
right now. He´s very strong. Forget about magic in this  |
battle. Use Kratos+Lloyds skills and Raine only to heal. |
Block the deadly attacks of the spinning spikes on his   |
feet. Sheena is ver useful here,too. 	 		 |
---------------------------------------------------------

Before you leave the tower you HAVE to read the books in the entrance
hall, especially the one in the top left bookcase.
Raine will say something then and you get an item (8).
If you forget this you have to come back later to read the book.
You need it to heal Pietro at Hima.
Now go out and watch another scene at night.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


==SYLVARANT MAP==
Your next target is the lake you saw the unicorn earlier.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I.A3.n : ==LAKE UMACY==
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Watch the scene but to rescue the unicorn you need the help from Undine.

spells and Kratos Raijinken if you have it.		 |
---------------------------------------------------------

After the fight she grants you her powers.
Sheena will get a skill to summon her and a skill to change an
ally´s weapon attribute to water.
Every spirit will give you these two skills,
in their own elemental attribute of course.
You also get an Elemental Ring.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


==SYLVARANT MAP==

the best equipment so far.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
**EDITOR´S NOTE**							    |
----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
You are able to fight EFREET and SYLPH before you head to the		    |
Tower of salvation. If you want them now, go back to the altar rooms	    |
of the FIRE SHRINE / WIND SHRINE.					    |
You have to fight them to aquire their powers.				    |
You can still get them later in the game when				    |
you return to Sylvarant. They will be easier to defeat then and you´ll	    |
also see a special scene with their elemental counterparts after you´ve won.|
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------|
A lot harder than Undine. Let Genis cast strong spells	 |
(Not Fire elemental as it heals him!). Kratos should	 |
assist Lloyd. Beware as he can cast Explode. You may want|
Raine to cast all of her supporting magic.		 |
---------------------------------------------------------

Visit DIRKS HOUSE if you want.

Even harder than Efreet as they are three. You may need  |
to adjust you allies tactics setting here. Let them all  |
attack the same target as Lloyd. Or let Kratos and Sheena|
distract two of them as you beat one with Lloyd.         |
Take Colette with in this battle as Genis and            |
Raine will get pounded too much.                         |

Meet your allys at the entrance and enter.
Use the teleport, watch the long scene and
get ready for three bosses in a row.

---------------------------------------------------------
TOWER OF SALVATION BOSS 1: REMIEL			 |
---------------------------------------------------------|
-HP: 16.000                                              |
-TP: 258                                                 |

---------------------------------------------------------|
Be careful as he warps around and uses Holy Lance. 	 |
Not too hard on the other hand if you are strong enough  |
---------------------------------------------------------

After he´s defeated there are more scenes and you fight two more bosses.

---------------------------------------------------------
TOWER OF SALVATION BOSS 2: KRATOS AURION		 |
---------------------------------------------------------|
-HP: 22.500                                              |
-TP: 1.500                                               |
-Offense: 750                                            |

-Strong against: Light                                   |
---------------------------------------------------------|
One of the hardest fight in the game if you don´t have   |
EXPx2 or EXPx10. If you are seriously wounded by Remiel  |
you have a BIG disadvantage here. But you don´t even have|
to defeat him. The game continues even if you lose.      |
---------------------------------------------------------

Either if you win or lose you get attacked by the next boss.

---------------------------------------------------------
TOWER OF SALVATION BOSS 3: YGGDRASIL			 |
---------------------------------------------------------|

-Defense: 350                                            |
-Weak against: Darkness                                  |
-Strong against: Light                                   |
---------------------------------------------------------|
He will take only 1 HP damage if you hit him.		 |
It doesn´t matter if you lose here,too. If you have	 |
Expx10 and are at a high level you can bring his HP down |
but then the battle just ends in no other way.           |
---------------------------------------------------------

Lloyd wakes up in SYLVARANT BASE.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


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

the elevator so you can reach the platform with the grey crate on it.
Push the grey crate over the edge and then to the far right into a small gap.
Push the other two crates in a gap to the south.
You can now collect two items (1,2).

Next you have top pull the grey crate onto the blue switch and the two others
on the elevator again. But this time place them so that they form
a vertical line on the left side.

Now go down the set of stairs that appeared.
In this floor you shoot the pillar to the left and use the terminal.
If you have placed the crates correct you can reach the other side.
Here you shoot the pillar and use the blue display to drain the water.
Cross the trench again and push the grey crate over the edge.

On the other side you can go down the stairs and push the
crate onto the switch.
The gate opens and you shoot a final pillar.
As you walk upstairs again the camera angle reveals
you a chest hidden behind the display (3).
Take the ring from it and leave through the southern door.

After the scene go left and north.
Watch the scene and curse Namco for using silly real-time cutscenes
instead of Anime or CG FMVs...

You should destroy the drones first then the object      |
in the middle. Then just pound the main door.            |
---------------------------------------------------------

Go in the main hall and note the boulder blocking the left path.
To the right is a machine where you can push a button.
It activates some lift.
Go right wait for the lift and let it transport you right.
Enter the door here to find another boulder.
Back on the lift you have to shoot the panel with your ring.
It changes the lift´s direction so the lift will transport you north.
Here you can check the sealed door but you can´t enter it.
Near the door is a lift which will take you to the lower level of the area.
Here you can get two swords to the left (1,2).

To the right is the orb to change the ring.
Head back up and you can bomb away the boulder to the left.
The enemy around here should carry the Memory Gem.
Get back down and change the ring to normal again.
Then you have to shoot the panel of the first lift again.
Jump over the edge to the left and you can change the ring once more.
Back up you can take the lift to the right door
and blast the boulder in there.

In this area you have to bomb some more boulders and gather the items along
the way (3,4,5).
You´ll also find two machines which you should activate
as well as some small gnome.
Now save and take a path to the right.
On the way you step on a switch and do some Indiana-Jones-action.
Continue right, ignore the switch in the wall and go to the rotating stone.
After the scene you have to go near it till it tries to hit you.
By running left it will start to follow you.
Do so until you are right before the trap, then step on it and let
the boulder smash the spinning stone.

Use the switch in the wall to disable
the trap and go back to a lift taking you
down to the lower area and to the pieces of the smashed stone.

Check them to find the first DARKNESS WEAPON (6).

Take the upper path to an Herb (3), then step on one of the
wooden platforms and press X.
It will shatter and you´ll land one level lower.
Sometimes you´ll also crush through the next platform as well.
As you see there are some chests on every level.
To aquire them all you´ll have to backtrack to the upper floor and crush
through different platforms everytime.

First Route
-----------
-Crush the first of the three platforms
-Take the item (4)
-Crash trough 3 more platforms
-Crush the second of three platforms
-Take the item (5)
-From this chest crush the northern platform
-Take the item (6)

Once your at the bottom of the room talk to the gnome and he
should step away from the door.
To the left patrols some big dragon.
He is worth over 800 Exp as well as 10000 Gald.
So fight him several times.
Talk to the gnome to the right.
Then exit to the left.

You are back in the main hallway.
Go right again and try a different route
in the hall with the wooden platforms.

Second Route
------------
-Crush the second of the three platforms
-Crush the next one
-Take the item (7)
-Crash through any other platforms

And another time for the last items:

Third Route
-----------
-Crush the third of the three platforms
-Crush the next one
-Take the item (8)
-Crash through the only platform here
-Take the item (9)

Back in the main hallway talk to the gnome with the red cap.
He´ll start walking during the funny music.
You have to kill off enemies along the way because
the gnome will stop if an enemy touched him.
Once he stops talk to him again.
It can happen that you´ll have to pay him some
money (can be 5000 Gald and up) or give him some potion
as a penalty.

Eventually he´ll exit through the next door.
Follow him and talk to him on the wooden bridge.
Take the second answer and some mini-game begins.
You have to press X when the gnome is jumping.
After three times the bridge should crumble.
You can now reach the save point.
Heal and save then proceed to the altar.
Watch the scene and fight GNOME.

Raine for healing and holy-elemental damage, 		 |
Colette for holy-elemental damage and Genis for distant  |
magic attacks. This time the enemies physical attacks	 |
hit for about 1500 HP if not blocked so it is very 	 |
important that you block his attacks with Lloyd while    |
your allies attack from the distance.			 |
Your Unison attacks should do about 3000 HP damage 	 |
so have your bar filled before you start the fight. 	 |
Keep healing with Raine and do only counters		 |
with Lloyd directly after you got hit physically.	 |
As you will see the boss also casts level 2 S-Type magic.|
Heal your allies if they were targeted.			 |
Keep an eye on Lloyds HP. 				 |
If he dies your allies will be very easy targets.	 |

**EDITOR´S NOTE**							    |

After the events at FLANOR you will either get Zelos or Kratos.	    	    |
The conditions seem to be some kind of friendship-level between		    |
Lloyd and either Kratos and Zelos.					    |
This level depends on your decisions during the game and also on	    |
the number of skit points you got on the world map.			    |
Some of the events later could change if you get Kratos back.		    |
Read at the FAQs below for tips getting Kratos.				    |

will go to the Darkness Temple. Genis suggests that Koton at
HAKONESIA PEAK may have the last Devils Arm.

Go right and north to the doctor´s house.
Zelos will speak to himself abit and will rejoin you.
Now save your game at the Inn!

After you asked the doctor for help he will take 4 members of your
party to escort him to Altessa. These 4 are the ones who like Lloyd
the least. The 3 remaining friends are the ones who like Lloyd the most.

They will ask Lloyd to go out with them and watch the snow one after another.

Choose the first answer for a scene in front of the church or
decline their wish to make the next in list ask for a walk.

If you want Kratos back in your party you have to deny all 3 of
them to get a scene with Kratos. If there is no scene, your relationship
with Kratos isn´t good enough. Load your game if you´re not happy
with the outcome of these scenes.

You can also get 3 rare items in these scenes. At least these items will
take you 3 playthroughs of the whole game to collect 100% Items (!!!)
If you chose Colette for a walk in the snow you get (1).
If you chose Zelos you get (2) and if you chose nobody but saw the
scene with Kratos you get (3).

**EDITOR´S NOTE**							    |
----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
If you take the first answer during your dialogue with Raine		    |
you´ll have to make your way through the forest alone with Lloyd. 	    |
You can even leave to the world map with just Lloyd alone.		    |
Your friends will join you after the scenes in WELGAIA later.		    |
I recommend that you choose this option only if you are playing		    |
with EXPx10 or are at Lv.80+ on Normal difficulty. 		 			    |

Talk to Colette and choose the second answer.
Talk to her again and choose the first answer to proceed.

(12): Shield Ring
(13): Blue Shield
(14): Sacred Stone
(15): Vinheim Key
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The whole dungeon is optional,
you can just go ahead and fight the last three bosses.
But I suggest exploring the castle first!

Getting the first tablet
------------------------
Go right, use the save point and enter the right door.
Fight the waiting angel in here to make a special chest appear.
Head through the door to the right and take the item (1).
Go back and upstairs into the upper right door.
Find an armor (2) hidden behind the couch.
Leave and enter the upper left door.

Cross the bridge to the left and enter the upper left door here.
Follow the stairway upwards entering the doors on your way.
As the first room is empty the second contains an Elixir (3).
Fight the angel in the third room
to make a chest appear which contains TABLET 1 (4).
On top of the stairway you´ll find a door
leading to the rooftop of the castle.

Getting the second tablet
-------------------------
There are two items hidden behind the brown walls
to the upper left and upper right.
Just walk near the railing and behind the walls.
You find a strong armor (5) and powerful swords for Lloyd (6).

Take the right door and head down the stairway.
In the first room you find a chest (7)
and a second hidden behind the couch (8)
The second room is empty and the third one leads back to the bridge.
Before you enter the third door continue
downstairs to find a EXGem (9).
Back at the bridge cross it again and this time enter the lower left door.
Here go left and upstairs to a door to the upper right.
Cross the balcony and enter the door to the right.
Get TABLET 2 from the special chest (10).

Getting the Sacred Stone
------------------------
Return to the previous area and take the stairs
to the upper left for another room with a chest in it (11).
Head down the stairs and enter the lower left door.
Take an item (12) here as well.
Then go back right and to the bridge.
Enter the upper left door again and follow
the stairs all the way down to another chest (13).
Enter the door above to return to the main hall.
One of your tablets will react to the black cirlce and some coloured
crates appear. Go right and the same happens for your second tablet.

Now push the BLACK CRATE onto the left black cirle (it´s another teleport).
You are warped to a platform on the roof.
Push the BLACK CRATE down the lower right edge.
Then do the same with the BLUE CRATE and finally with the RED CRATE.
At last you push the PURPLE CRATE over your newly created bridge
and into some opening.

Now push the YELLOW CRATE on the black teleport to the right.
Then do the same with the GREEN CRATE and finally with the LIGHT-BLUE CRATE.
Finally push the WHITE CRATE over the bridge and into the hole.
The barrier will disappear and you get a special item (14) which allows
you to warp directly back to the entrance of the tower.
You don´t have to make all the way through DERRIS-KHARLAN again.

Beating the game
----------------
Heal and save then defeat the big dragon waiting in the hall.

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

big dragon. He has much attack power. Try to get behind  |
him or below his head and beat him up. 		         |
---------------------------------------------------------

You now get a key item (15).
Open the door and enter the realm.
Watch the scene.
If you want to return to the Worldmap, leave the realm and
stand on the teleport you came from. Choose the first option
to be transported to the entrance of the TOWER OF SALVATION.

If you want to take on the two final bosses press A at the edge.
Before you do you should re-equip heal and save.

-Strong against: Light                                   |
---------------------------------------------------------|
An updated Yggdrasil. He warps very often and has short  |
casting times. He attacks with all kinds of Light magic	 |
as well as Grand Dasher and physical hits. Also he can	 |
cast an "Anti Holy Song" which gives bad status for 	 |
your party. Prepare for a long battle and don´t hold 	 |
back your most useful items. 				 |
---------------------------------------------------------

After your victory watch some scenes and prepare for the last duel.

---------------------------------------------------------
FINAL BOSS 2: ULTIMATE MITHOS              	         |
---------------------------------------------------------|

-Strong against: Every Element                           |
---------------------------------------------------------|
Don´t be afraid of him. Use all your items you have left |
and hammer him with your skills. He usually casts	 |
Lv2 spells and is very similar to the bosses you fought  |
in Welgaia before, only very faster.  			 |
---------------------------------------------------------

Enjoy the ending FMV as well as the credits and some more scenes.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------|
This time he has wings and uses up to Level 3 magic      |
like Indignation. His physical slashes will do about 	 |
3000 HP damage if not blocked.				 |
Take Raine and Genis with you as 			 |
Raine needs to heal and cast				 |
Ray while Genis launches his strongest magic.		 |
Lloyd should hinder the enemy of casting magic 		 |
by trying to knock him down.				 |
Defend his attacks and use your magic shield.		 |
Note that the enemy can cast his spells very fast.	 |
If you see the wide aura of a Level 3 spell 		 |
try to get out of it. Defend and let Raine cast Recover. |
Use your strongest skills and Unison			 |
attacks to defeat him finally.				 |
---------------------------------------------------------

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


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
V.4  : ==ABYSSION==
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As you have all 9 DARKNESS WEAPONS you can face the hardest enemy of the game.
You find him standing in front of the DARKNESS TEMPLE´s altar
where you battled SHADOW before.
Talk to him and the fight will start after a scene.

---------------------------------------------------------
OPTIONAL BOSS: ABYSSION	       		      	         |
---------------------------------------------------------|
-HP: 120.000                                             |
-TP: 8.200                                               |
-Offense: 2.250                                          |
-EXP: 8.000                                              |
-Gald: 6.800                                             |
-Defense: 425                                            |
-Items: ?,?                                              |
---------------------------------------------------------|
His speed and strength can easily overwhelm you as he 	 |
runs over the battlefield and attacks EVERY member 	 |
of your team. He attacks very fast for big damage so 	 |
try to be at level 80 at last.				 |
You can use the item called ALL DIVIDE to lower 	 |
the damage taken and given by all allies and enemies.	 |
---------------------------------------------------------

After your victory the Darkness Weapons will unleash their powers.
Try to fight with them despite their low stats.
In battle these weapons can be extremly powerful although
AFAIR each weapon is bound to a requirement for its attack power.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
==BEATING ABYSSION AT LV. 65==
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Julio Cruz (reeboo@bellsouth.net) sent in this great strategy
and tips on how to beat Abyssion at a seemingly low level:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lloyd, Genis, Raine, Regal all around level 65, but none above.
Of course, I had the best equipment (that I knew of) at the time.

Items:
------
You need 20 of each gel.
If Gald is an issue, kill the Dragon in the
Earth Temple over and over again and take this
opportunity to learn new techs.

Unison Attack:
--------------
I had Raine and Genis set with Ray and Explosion for the
Compound Unision Attack: Prism Stars.

All-Divide was the first item I used.
Otherwise he hits for about 3000+ points of damage at that level.


------
Lloyd:
------
Basically, I endlessly hacked away at Abyssion.
When I saw him begin to cast spells I used Raging Beast.
Also, whenever I needed to use an item,
I had Lloyd use it on whoever needed it.

Accessories:
------------
Black Onyx is a MUST have for Lloyd.


------
Genis:
------
I turned off all the spells Genis had that were not defined as
Advanced. Leaving him with Indignation, etc. (level 3) spells.
Genis MUST be set on L-Range under Strategy menu.
Otherwise he'll wander near Abyssion
(and Abyssion will try to attack him if they get near each other).

Accessories:
------------
Genis MUST have any accessories that reduce TP costs and a
Moonstone (TP +30%), and also the Compound Ex-Skill
which reduces TP costs ("Technical").


------
Raine:
------
Raine is a strange character to use some think, but if you
manage to learn Revitalize before taking on Abyssion,
she can help incredibly in terms
of how many HP healing gels you use.
However, you should turn off all her
"buffing" techs like Field Barrier.
They help so little, that all they do is serve to waste precious TP.
Also, she's needed for her holy spells and the
Compound Unison Attack.

Accessories:
------------
Just like Genis, she needs accessories that reduce TP costs
(her TP will run out quickly if not) and she needs a
Moonstone (TP +30%). Also, the Compound Ex-Skill "Technical."
Raine should also be set on L-Range Strategy.


-------------
Regal/Presea:
-------------
I used Regal because at the time he "seemed" better than
Presea. However, Presea is also a viable and perhaps better
character to use. Her defense is higher and her attack is stronger.
So, in either case (whether you use Presea or Regal)
they're both just there to help Lloyd take
hits and keep Abyssion off the mages.
However, Regal has one -major- advantage over Presea.
He can heal with Healer of Grand Healer, both VERY
useful techs when Raine is low on TP and you need HP in a tight spot.

Accessories:
------------
No matter which you choose, another Black Onyx is needed.

Stratgey:
---------
Should be set on Protect Friend, in the event Abyssion gets
near Genis and Raine, Regal can distract him long enough
so you can regain control of his attacks onto Lloyd.


General Strategy:
-----------------
Keep everyone alive, but don't panic if someone dies,
you should have 20 Life Bottles on-hand, and Raine at
the ready with Ressurection.
Try not to allow anyone's HP/TP drop too low, but also
don't over-use gels. Towards the end of the fight,
I found myself rationing gels, because I had exhausted
all of my Melange and Miracle Gels too quickly.

While keeping this in mind, don't be stingy!
You -will- have to use the majority of your gels,
and this is where Magic Lens becomes your best
friend. With the Lens you can see what Abyssion's
remaining HPs are and you can judge better (in my opinion)
how many gels you may need for the remainder of the battle.
Try to avoid using Spirit Bottles and Energy Tablets,
but I did use 1 of each towards the end; in retrospect,
I really didn't need them.

Misc:
-----
If you happen to have any accessories that increase Dark
resistance, you might consider equipping them,
but they're not essential. The Charm that
defends against Weak and Curse (I forgot the name)
or the ring you get from Shadow would work,
but if you use them, only equip them on your two melee characters.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
V.5  : ==MELTOKIO ARENA==
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As you have high levels for your characters try some battles in the arena
of MELTOKIO. Talk to the waitress and choose a person to fight.
You have to pay some fee to enter the tournament.

If you win the first stage (BEGINNER CLASS) you can choose to fight
in the INTERMEDIATE CLASS, too.
Another waitress will appear to the left which can sign you up for
battles with two more allies.
There are also very hard EXPERT CLASSes
for the SINGLE and PARTY battles.
The entrance fees will reach
very high amounts then, so save before you enter a new stage.

If you beat the hardest class of the Party Battles you
will be challenged by a group of special characters:

Q: What are these things I can do after I beat the game?

A: After the credits you reach the GRADE SHOP. Use your collected

   you made during the game and by checking the "Relationship Skits"
   on the world map.

   I for myself got Kratos back by using him in every battle until he left.
   Also I took the choices during skits which seemed to be better.
   Then I never used Zelos while he was with me.
   And in skits with Zelos I took the choices wich made him angry.
   During the scenes at the Doctor´s house in Flanor I chose the
   second option to Colette,Sheena and Presea and then I met Kratos.
==============================================================================

               its junk.

             Forest. North of the path to the 2nd Sword Dancer.

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


==============================================================================
Q: There is no ship taking me to Palmacosta! Do I have to restart?

A: No, you triggered the "continental route".
   Read Parts I.B2 + I.B3 for a detailed guide.

   ...battled her 2 times
   ...talked to her at HIMA,Luin

   she will join you after Part I.A3.h !

   If you tell her she is cute (second choice),
   she will join you after Part I.A3.i !
==============================================================================


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

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


==============================================================================
Q: Although I raise levels my stats keep staying low...

   Try to change titles to develop well-balanced fighters.
==============================================================================


==============================================================================
Q: Why are some of my skills in blue colour and some red?

A: If a skill is written in blue colour your character is
   starting to learn it. Press START in the menu to see
   from which skill this new one will evolve.
   If you are at a certain level and have used the parent skill a
   number of times (often it´s 50) you have to use the parent skill in battle
   once more to unlock the new skill. If a skill is red it mean that you TP
   are just to low to use it at the moment.
==============================================================================


==============================================================================
Q: Are there no "Tents" like in FF games to heal all allies HP and TP at once?

A: No, there are not! Later you can find elixirs which fill up one
   characters HP and TP to the max.
   Try cooking after battles to not run out of health.
