Cast Light Upon the Darkened Earth,
Save Those Lost in Despair,
O Mighty Ocean, Guide Us As We Journey Through,
The Darkest Pit of Night...
May Time, Ever Fleeting,
Forgive Us, We Who Forsaken Our Song,
And Buried Our Future...
Fare thee well, my children...
Rest in my heart...
Forever...

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wing and the Lost Ocean is an epic, original game from
the masterminds at Monolith Software and tri-Crescendo. The actual star Baten
Kaitos is an orange giant in the whale constellation of Cetus, approximately
260 light-years from Earth. The word ĎBaten Kaitosí is the corrupt form of the
Arabic phrase Batn Qaytus, meaning "Whaleís Belly". In some cases, hardcore
fans have even resorted to calling it "God". Hmm... maybe.

Baten Kaitos tells the story of an young male named Kalas, who has lost both
his grandfather, Georg, and his little brother, Fee, and is on a quest of
revenge against The Mad Wolf Unit of the Alfard Empire - Giacomo, Ayme, and
Folon, the people that murdered his family. Kalas and his unexpected companions
Xelha, Gibari, Lyude, Savyna, and Mizuti find themselves wrapped in a plot of
betrayal, love, and creation that delivers one of the finest RPGing experiences
in history.

   ~KALAS~~

Age: 18
Home: Balancoire, Mira
Voice Actor: Eric Kelso

"Yeah right! If youíre lookiní for someone to die with you, youíre askiní the
wrong guy."

Kalas, the protagonist, is able to talk to you, the player. Thatís right, you.
Kalas has bonded with a Guardian Spirit to help him find the murderers of his
grandfather and brother. Heís cocky and arrogant, and will do whatever it takes
to get revenge - whatever it takes. Armed with double swords, Kalasís attacks
all deal with some sort of blade. His attacks cover all of the elements, as
well as his finishers. Many of his best swords are Combo 2 swords, so it would
be wise to put many Combo 1 Magnus in his deck as well.

~Finishing Moves for Kalas~

   ~XELHA~~

Age: 17
Home: Kaffaljidhma, Wazn
Voice Actress: Bianca Allen

"We tend to neglect the things that should be important to us. And sometimes
forget about them completely."

Xelha is the heroine of his powerful epic. She is very strong willed, albeit a
bit naive about the world around her. Her clothes are rather odd, even for
Baten Kaitos, and she is extremely knowledgeable of Malpercio and the End
Magnus, though she chooses not to talk about her past. Xelha is extremely
versatile in battle, as she has an equal assortment of elemental magic Magnus
and has a very high speed. Her main drawback is that her defense and vitality
are poor, and none of her magic Magnus can be used to defend, which limits the
amount of offensive Magnus she can bring into battle.

   ~GIBARI~

Age: 34
Home: Nashira, Diadem
Voice Actor: Jeff Gedert

"Simmer down, will ya? Iíve never been good at these... debates"

Gibari is the oldest character in the game, and resembles Wakka from Final
Fantasy X in appearance (though not in personality). He works as a fisherman in
the small fishing village of Nashira, and doesnít particularly care for the
customs and traditions of the town. He and King Ladekahn seem to be good
friends, and he is an extremely strong fighter, using his paddle as his weapon.
Gibariís main elements are Water and Wind, Fire and Chronos Magnus of his are
very rare. He is extremely slow, but makes up for it in sheer might, being the
strongest fighter in your party.

   ~LYUDE~~

Age: 18
Home: Mintaka, Alfard
Voice Actor: Thomas Meleski

"Will I be able to face them? Will I really be able to fight my own
countrymen... my own family?"

Lyude is a man full of sorrow and regret. His brother Skeed and his sister
Vallye hate him, his country has exiled him, his caring nurse has been killed,
and he thinks no one likes him. Because of his conflicts between doing whatís
right and following his family, itís only right that Lyude uses Dark and Light
Magnus. Those are the only elements in his entire deck besides Neutral. Those
he is not an offensive master, he is the only character in the game with an
abundance of Light and Dark Magnus.

   ~SAVYNA~

Age: 25
Home: Opu, Anuenue
Voice Actress: Rachel Walzer

"Iíll say it once. No one goes down without permission. Those that canít keep
up will be left behind. Understood?"

Savyna is a strong, silent woman that doesnít take crap from anyone. She makes
a living as a monster hunter in Komo Mai, keeping to herself. Though she
shrouds herself in mystery, she is very concerned about children. Savyna is an
excellent offensive fighter, and can attack with an amazing amount of neutral
damage. One of her major flaws is that her attack animations are extremely
quick, making it next to impossible for less-skilled players to use her. Her
deck is made up of Water and Fire Magnus, and she uses melee fists to attack.
Stocking up on Tekken (Iron Fists) Magnus would be wise, as that is her only
Magnus that can be used to defend as well as attack.

~Finishing Moves for Savyna~

   ~MIZUTI~

Age: 14
Home: Gemma, Duhr
Voice Actress: Yuko Yunokawa

"Remember one thing. The Great Mizuti sometimes needs to tell lies. But you
should never lie to the Great Mizuti. Never. Remember!"

Mizuti is by far the most eccentric and imaginative characters in Baten Kaitos.
Mizuti calls mizutiself (new word for yíall) "The Great Mizuti", tooting that
The Great Mizuti is on a very important mission, and that The Great Mizuti is a
hero. Who is this mysterious being? In battle, Mizuti uses the same exact
attacking Magnus as Xelha. Mizutiís speed is not as high as Xelhaís, but
Mizutiís defense is better than hers, making Mizutiís a valuable asset to your
team.

"Wonderful. Marvelous. Fantastic!!!" - The Great Mizuti

So, you want to know how to play Baten Kaitos? Youíve come to the right place
then! This guide will teach you all there is know about Magnus and how they
play a part in the world of Baten Kaitos.

~~~Battle System~~~

When Baten Kaitos was first announced in the summer of 2003 (well, it was
mentioned before hand, but Famitsu first released the details of the game right
before Monolithís big show), many gamers, including myself, were skeptical
about the card combat. No more Yu-Gi-Oh clones, please. Thankfully, Baten
Kaitos does away with the standard that Card RPGs have set and introduces a
completely new battle system dubbed Magnus Battle System. Magnus control
everything in the game, so it would be wise to get aquatinted with them.

On the field, you will see your enemies, so you can choose whether you want to
battle or not (though sometimes it is a bit hard to avoid the enemies). Once
the battle begins, you will see a row of Magnus at the bottom of the screen, a
timer on the right side, and your HP at the top of the screen. This is your
offensive turn. The first thing youíll notice is that all the Magnus have
different numbers one them. These numbers can be used for form prizes, which
will be explained in the Prizes section. By moving your analog stick over your
Magnus, you can select which Magnus you want to use, and then by using the
C-Stick, you can choose what spirit number you wish to use. Point the C-Stick
in the direction of the spirit number you wish to choose. Depending on your
Class, youíll be able to attack with multiple Magnus. At the end of the turn,
the damage is calculated and the damage is dealt to the enemy.

The next turn is a defensive turn. While this seems extremely odd to RPG vets,
it is actually an amazing addition to the RPG genre. By selecting Magnus on
your defensive turn while the enemy is attacking you, you can greatly reduce
the amount of damage the enemy does. Unlike your offensive turn, you can choose
cards that are grayed out to defend (they will do nothing if they are grayed
out). This is a great way to cycle through a dead hand and get the Magnus you
want in your deck. Sound simple enough?

~~~Elements~~~

There are 7 elements in the game, ripped straight from Chrono Cross.

Light <-> Dark
Wind <-> Chronos
Fire <-> Water
Neutral

On a Magnus, you will see a number such as "45 (20 Dark)". This means that this
particular Magnus does 45 Neutral damage PLUS 20 Dark damage. This is useful
against enemies who have a Light element, as the 20 Dark damage will do extra
damage towards enemies of the opposite element.

You do not want to mix elements, however. Say your offensive turn goes like
this:

40 (20 Dark)
50 (25 Light)
30 (15 Dark)
10 (5 Light)
Total: 130 Neutral Damage, 5 Dark Damage

What happened?! Iíll tell you what happened - you mixed elements! By mixing
elements, you do less damage than you normally would. Not good, not good at
all. It is important to try not to mix elements unless it is necessary or the
damage from the opposing element is so low it doesnít matter.

You also must be wary of elements when you are defending. Letís say your
defensive turn goes like this:

Enemy attacks with:

40 (20 Wind)
80 (30 Wind)
20 (10 Wind)

You defend with:

90 (45 Fire)
110 (50 Fire)
80 (50 Fire)

Total Damage: 60

Again, what happened?! You defended with cards that were much more powerful
than the enemies. What did you do wrong?

To block elemental damage, you must use defensive cards of the opposing
element. You would need to block with 60 Chronos defense to counter the enemies
attacks. Hard, huh?

~~~Prizes~~~

Ever wonder what the spirit numbers were for? By stringing together different
spirit numbers, you can form prizes that lead to even more damage being dealt!
Hereís an example:

You attack with (number in bracket is spirit number]:

40 (10 Wind) [2]
10 (5 Fire) [3]
20 (10 Wind) [4]

Total Damage: 122

Wait, wait, what? That should do 95 damage, not 122. Where did that extra
damage come from? Because you had a 3 card straight, an extra 28% was added to
your damage total. By stringing together spirit numbers, you can form
devastating damage totals that can make all the difference in a battle, or take
damage away during a defensive turn. Hereís a list of the prizes and what they
do (note that straights can be played in ascending order or in descending
order):

Final straight sunrise (1-9): -75%

~~~Deck Construction~~~

Youíve learned how to battle, and now youíre ready to make your deck. Hold on
though - there are a few things you should know before hand.

First, look at the enemies in the upcoming area. If youíre going to the Lave
Caves, donít bring Fire Magnus. When youíre going to the Ice Cliffs of Gomeisa,
it would be wise not to bring Water Magnus. Elements can make all the
difference in a battle.

Second, remember than some characters can use offensive Magnus as defensive
Magnus. Most of Kalasís Gibariís weapons can be used for defensive, but Tekken
(Iron Fists) can also be used for defense in Savynaís deck.

Lastly, donít overload your deck with finishers. Theyíre nice and all, but if
you have too many, youíll find yourself with a full hand of finishers at the
end of your deck. Try to have 2 or 3 that will work well with the elements in
your deck. (Mizuti is the exception since Mizuti has three neutral finishers.
Itís always a good idea to keep Sorcererís Seal in Mizutiís deck).

~~~Leveling Up and Classing Up~~~

Baten Kaitos does things differently again, this time with leveling up and
classing up. Instead of instantly leveling up once you get a certain amount of
experience, you must go to the church through the Blue Flower Save Point to
level up. While this is a bit inconvenient, it allows the player to have full
control over the difficulty level. The low level challenge has become a
favorite among hardcore players. Here is the amount of experience that is
required to level up:

01: -
02: 80

Classing up is also something that is a change from the norm in the RPGing
world. When you "Class Up", you are allowed to have more cards in your deck,
have more cards in your hand, and play more cards in your turn. The downside is
that once you reach Class 3, you only have a certain amount of time to choose
your first card. To class up, you need a certain item for each character,
listed in the Character section. Hereís a list of what each class does:

Class 1
Deck Size: 20 Magnus
Hand Size: 3 Magnus
Combo Max: 2
Time Limit: -

Class 2
Deck Size: 25 Magnus
Hand Size: 4 Magnus
Combo Max: 3
Time Limit: -

Class 3
Deck Size: 30 Magnus
Hand Size: 5 Magnus
Combo Max: 4
Time Limit: 30 sec.

Class 4
Deck Size: 40 Magnus
Hand Size: 6 Magnus
Combo Max: 5
Time Limit: 10 sec.

Class 5
Deck Size: 50 Magnus
Hand Size: 7 Magnus
Combo Max: 6
Time Limit: 7 sec.

Class 6
Deck Size: 60 Magnus
Hand Size: 7 Magnus
Combo Max: 9
Time Limit: 5 sec.

~~~Photography~~~

Did you ever wonder how the sea monster gave you 10,000 Gil after you beat it?
Wonder why those Earth Elementals gave you 500 Gald even though the Desians
earlier in the game gave you only 100? Baten Kaitos finally solves the long
pondered money issue. Monster donít carry check books anymore - you have to
make money yourself.

When you start the game, you might have noticed that you have a camera in your
deck. By taking pictures of monsters, youíll be able to sell them and make G
(the currency in Baten Kaitos. Go figure).

To select a picture that you have taken, you much select it from the spoils
screen at the end of the battle. Normal enemies take about 10 minutes to
develop, bosses take a bit longer.

You may notice that your photos are too dark or they are too faded. Each enemy
has a star rating. When adding this star rating to the star rating of the area
the monster is in, you get a number some where on a scale of 0 - 10. Hereís an
example:

The Lave Caves: 1
Foytow: 2.5
Total: 3.5

Uh oh, 3.5 is very low. When the number is below 5, the picture is going to
come out too dark. Use light based Magnus along with the camera to get your
perfect picture.

Hereís an example of the exact opposite:

Lesser Celestial River: 1.5
Thunderfish: 4
Total: 5.5

This picture is going to come out very faded, and isnít going to sell for much
at all. Use dark based Magnus along with the camera to get the picture you want.

What if itís a perfect 5?:

Nunki Valley: 1.5
Doomer: 3.5
Total: 5

With the Doomer, you donít need to adjust the light at all, itís perfect the
way it is!

Agility also plays a factor into the picture turn out. In the start of the
game, the lower level cameras wonít get a good shot of the monster. Once you
get Camera 2 and Camera 3, your pictures will be much more clear and will be
worth much more G.

~~~Spirit Attacks~~~

Kalas will constantly be asking your opinion throughout the game. While these
questions seem to have little to nothing to do with the story, they actually do
two very important things. First, they get rid of the echoed sound in the
speech. Because you are listening through Kalasís mind, the more you bond, the
clearer you hear things. Second, the higher the bond, the more likely Spirit
Attacks will happen. Spirit Attacks are somewhat random attacks that will
appear right before you combo max, and they replace one of the cards in your
hand. Itís useful to be nice to Kalas, trust me. Here are the stats on the six
Spirit Attacks:

Shining Seraph
ATK: 210 (150 Light)

Demons of Darkness
ATK: 210 (150 Dark)

Hellfire
ATK: 210 (150 Fire)

Sacred Spring
ATK: 210 (150 Water)

Lingering Time
ATK: 210 (150 Chronos)

Distorting Wind
ATK: 210 (150 Wind)

"That Spirit seems to like you. If you could bond with it, something wonderful
may happen to you... Are you ready?"

After the voice speaks, a young man approaches. As he stretches him arms out,
pink petals of light engulf him. He has bonded with you, the player. Give your
gender and your name, and get ready to begin Baten Kaitos.

"Foolish Waif. Did she truly believe she could get away with that? Against the
Empire?" - Rodolfo

You will be awakened by Dr. Larikush, a local doctor who is tending for your
wounds after a fall you had in Moonguile Forest. Kalas will ask you if you
remember what happened - obviously you donít. Seeing this as really strange, he
shrugs it off, and picks up his Winglet. Open the chest near the door that
contains the "Shish Kebab (S)".

Youíll walk into a very rural farming town on the edge of the Frontier. Trees
sway in the background as cloud traverse along the sky. Even the flowers in the
foreground will rustle in the breeze from time to time.

Head left, where you will hear of the Blue Flowers. This is a save point, and
you go here to level up and class up. You can also deposit your Constellation
Magnus there.

Walk left, and you will reach another map. Head to the house in the very back
of the town to see the mayor. On the way there, Kalas will meet Meemai, the
Greythorne that saved you. Once inside the Mayorís house, he will tell you not
to go into the forest, itís evil, all that good stuff. Talk to the person near
the back bookshelf to get "Shish Kebab (M)". Walk out, and talk to the girl in
pink near the exit.

Before leaving, we have some things to do. Head into the house to the right of
the Mayorís house to find "Fire Burst Lv. 1" and "Dark Flare Lv. 1".

While your in Celbalrai, speak to Maynee. She is standing near the entrance to
the town. She says that her husband Aljeemo is somewhere in Pherkad.

After the small cut scene, Kalas will decide, being the behaved boy he is, to
go to Moonguile Forest. Exit Cebalrai and head towards Moonguile Forest.

In Moonguile Forest, first head towards the green chest near the second
monster. This contains a "Voice 1" Magnus. Voice Magnus add an automatic prize
you damage total if used in the attack.

Enter the second screen and walk upwards to get the "Leather Hat". Cross the
river and fight the Shawra. At the end of the battle, you should get the
constellation Magnus "Vela". Open the chest to get the "Bamboo Shoot".

Before you head on, itís best to keep fighting enemies until you get 80
experience points. After that, head to the blue flower in Cebalrai to level up.
The old man in the Church will stop you, asking about the Constellation Magnus.
Only Orion is intact. Give him Vela, and be on your way.

Head back to Moonguile, and make your way to the exit of the second screen. Uh
oh... growling? This canít be good...

Thereís the girl in pink! ...and there go Gram and Leon. Time for Kalas to save
the day. Get your wings out and prepare to fight your first boss battle!

This battle will use Kalas and Girl in Pink. Make sure you snap a picture of it
with Girl in Pink, using Dark Flare with it to perfect your picture.

Avoid using Fire Burst or Flame Sword, as they will do minimal damage to the
monster. Girl in Pink is great because she has Aqua Burst, an attack which is
sure to do some damage to the Dragon. Use Girl in Pinkís banana Magnus to heal
your party if they get low on HP (use the R button to cycle through party
members, use the L button to cycle through enemies).

Once he gets about halfway done, heíll start to use the nasty Crimson Hail.
Make sure to keep your HP up when he starts doing this. Itís a fairly easy
battle on the whole, and youíre awarded with a constellation and Kalasís first
finisher.
----

Once the battle ends, you will see Girl in Pink (revealing her name as Xelha)
praying for Gram and Leon. Being the nice person Kalas is, he will loot Gram
and Leon for anything that is worth money, and be on his way. Xelha will join
him, wanting to go deeper in the forest.

Before you head out, head back to Cebalraiís Blue Flower to level up and drop
off your new constellation. Take out all of the water Magnus in your decks and
replace them with as many fire Magnus as you can find. Of course, put Kalasís
new found finishing move in his deck as well. Sell your pictures and buy some
items at Cebalraiís shop. Head back to Moonguile and go deeper into the forest.

Head to the left, through the arches, to get the "Flame Sword" from the chest.
Go back to where you entered the screen, and then head upwards, collecting the
"Fire Burst Lv. 1" from the chest. Head back to where you entered the screen.
Move directly to the left, into the trees. You should see a faint path to the
other side. Save at the Red Flower and move on.

Once you enter this spring, the pendant around Xelhaís neck starts to glow,
turning everything all space-like. A giant sea serpent will arise from the
spring, talking about the ancient God Malpercio. Ready for another boss?

This battle isnít that much harder than the Sabre Dragon, except you could get
caught up in this completely awesome battle music. Anyways, pummel the guy with
Fire Magnus, avoiding all water based Magnus. Though it might be early in the
game, try using some straights and pairs to produce prizes. Itís good to learn
to pull them off early.
----

After the battle, you get a shinny Magnus that seems to be linked to the
ancient God Malpercio. Oh damn. Xelha yells at Kalas for a bit, then, *gasp*
GIACOMO! Oh daamn! Xelha gets captured by the Empire and you get knocked out...
again. So is the life of an RPG hero.

Once back in Cebalrai, talk to the Mayor. Heíll yet at you. First Xelha, now
the Mayor... Kalasís isnít have a very good day. After the chat, head to Dr.
Larikushís house. He will teach you about Quest Magnus. By using the C-Stick,
you can collect the Magna Essence of items on the field and store them as
Magnus! Youíll get 4 Blank Quest Magnus to start. The Doc will ask for a
"Mountain Apple", which can be found right outside. Bring it to him, and heíll
reward you with an "Ice Dagger". Head outside and go to the Blue Flower. Level
and Class-Up Kalas, giving him a hand of 4 and a deck of 25. Nice.

Go back to Celabrai and get "Pow Milk" from the stable. Give it the woman in
the house next to the shop. Sheíll reward you handsomely with a "Constellation
Puppis" Magnus.

Go to the Mayorís house and grab the "Stoked Fire" from his fireplace. Head
over to Moonguile and burn the log. The chest containing the "Ice Dagger"
Magnus will now be free to get. Next, head towards the screen right before the
boss fight with the Lord of the Spring. There will be a man with a bracelet who
will ask you to help him catch a Bluebird of Happiness. Help him, and then
collect the "Dead Bluebird" Magnus at the end. Finally, head up to where you
fought the Lord of the Spring and open the chest that contains the "Escape"
Magnus.

Head back to Cebalrai and get the "Explosives" on Dr. Larikushís desk. Wait a
minute... why does a doctor have explosives? Go to the map and enter "Nunki
Valley"

First, cross the fallen tree to get the "Frozen Shield" and the "Flame Shield".
Once thatís done, go up the ladder and jump across the small gap. This will
take a bit of timing, so jump right when the water dies down. Use the
"Explosives" to clear the path, and continue upwards.

Make sure you get "Secret Recipe 1" behind the waterfall. After that, make your
way towards the exit.

Ahh... Pherkad. Such a beauty. Pherkad is the first capital in the game (of 7,
of course). Once you enter, I suggest you turn your voices off. Not forever,
just for now. Trust me... youíll thank me.

First and foremost, talk to the girl studying the ground right in front of you.
Sheíll give you "Constellation Pyxis"

Start walking upwards, towards the tall building far off. On the second screen,
you will meet the infamous Palolo III, Master of Shadows. Yes, infamous.
Remember how I told you turn your voices off for the time being? Heís the
reason. Paloloís VA is just laughable. Itís quite sad, actually. Anyways, head
back to the first screen. Near the bottom of the screen on the right side there
should be a small door that glows gold. Go inside there, and youíll meet Palolo
III (and remember, you turned your voices off). He will tell Kalas the secret
to getting inside the mansion IF Kalas gets him a Rainbow Spider Web.

Head out on the main screen go to the opening above Paloloís house. This should
lead to a port with a Blue Flower and a shop. Rest up, level up, and buy some
Magnus. After youíre all done, head back to Nunki Valley.

The best way to take on Nunkirantula is to use Flame Swords and Flame Mail that
youíve acquired though out your journey. It has great defense, so this battle
might drag on for a little while. Make sure that youíve leveled up a couple of
times by fighting the Doomers near by and you should have no trouble.

After the battle, heíll drop a Duel Sword, Light Flare Lv. 2, and a Rainbow
Spider Web. Back to Pherkad!
----

On the first screen in Pherkad go to the small entrance that is above the
entrance to the port with the Blue Flower. This is Paloloís hide out. Your
voices should still be off, mind you. Give Palolo the web and he will tell you
how to get into the mansion using the well. Make your preparations, and head on
in.

Rodolfoís Mansion... how spiffy. You can turn your voices back on, by the way.

Head upwards, collecting the "Frozen Shield" that lies in the center of the
hallway. Go up the stairs to the left, and grab the "Chain Mail". Enter the
door. Grab the Guestroom key, but wait... hide! Rodolfoís coming! Kalas quickly
hides behind the couch and listens to Rodolfoís plans... to execute Xelha!
Guess whoís going to save her?

Grab "Wind Blow Lv. 1" in the corner of the room and head downstairs. The
Guestroom key can unlock all of these rooms. Start with the one to the far
left. Grab the "Mink Coat", and walk into the one to the right of that. In room
number two is Kalasís second finishing move "Shadow Wings". Guess what element
it is? Move to the next door to the right again. In here... itís Xelha! Rescue
her, and then grab the "Shrike Statue" and the "Chronos Blow Lv. 1". The Shrike
Statue is used to move Xelha to Class 2. Also, grab the "Nameless Flower" Quest
Magnus from the flower beds in her keep. Move again to the right to find an
"Ice Dagger". Now that youíve cleaned up, walk up the stairs to the right.

Save at the flower, class up Xelha, and level up if you need to. Stock your
decks with Water and Light Magnus. Youíre going to need it.

After a quick cut scene where Xelha opens the gate, She and Kalas run out to
find, *gasp* the ship is leaving! Oh but wait, they have wings. Using the Wings
of the Heart, Kalas and Xelha take off, ready to fight Giacomo.

Resistance: Fire (-50%), Dark (-50%)
EXP: 190
Winnings: Sparkle of Life, Chronos Blow Lv. 1
Difficulty: 3.5/10
Music: Chaotic Dance
Recommended Level: 6-7

Giacomo is a bit of a tough cookie, probably the first *real* boss battle in
the game. Of course, this battle also has AWESOME battle music. How many games
have techno beat boss themes?

Anyways, Giacomoís End Slasher is trouble. You have no Light defensive Magnus
at this point, so that damage is unavoidable. Try to use as many straights and
pairs as possible to reduce the damage.

It would be wise to have Xelha use the bananas and bamboo shoots to heal almost
every turn. Kalas should focus on attacking, using Ice Daggers to your
advantage.

The party gets Sparkle of Life, the second finishing move for Xelha, and
Chronos Blow Lv. 1 for beating Giacomo.
----

After you defeat him, youíll be on the run from the Imperial Army. This
triggers a rather humorous cut scene where Kalas will flip over an entire
barrel of apples to halt the soldiers. He and Xelha will then have a talk about
the future, and Xelha convinces Kalas to come to Diadem with her to warn King
Ladekahn of Giacomoís plans.

Of course, we still have plenty to do in Sadal Suud. By now, the Nameless
Flower you had should have turned into a "Pressed Flower". Give the Pressed
Flower to the woman next to the dead flowers in the streets of Pherkad to
receive the "Popular Pick-up Line".

Make your way back to Celbalrai and talk to the woman milking the Pow. Tell her
that Pherkad was impressive, and she will give you "Anklet of the Calm Winds",
an equip for Xelha.

Make your way back to The Lordís Mansion, and head to the room that is the
farthest right in the hallway with all the doors. Aljeemo will give you "Voice
2" for rescuing him. Return to Celbalrai and speak to Maynee. She will give you
the "Shampoo" Magnus. Finally, talk to her mother in the house next to the shop
in Celbalrai to get 500G. Score.

Before you leave Celbalrai, grab 2 "Pow Milk's" from the jars in the stable.
Hold onto one for 30 minutes. Head to the kitchen in The Lordís Mansion (next
to the blue save flower) and give it to the woman that needs it. Hold onto the
other Pow Milk for an additional hour and give it to the woman that needs it.

Next, head to Nunki Valley and get "Pristine Water". Go to the house that you
met Palolo III in. In it, a woman is furious about Palolo III vandalizing her
house (no one with a voice actor that bad could be good... sick little kid).
Give her the Pristine Water and sheíll reward your efforts with "Constellation
Aquarius".

Itís time to start the second huge sidequest. This sidequest spans the entire
game, and is rather fun to complete. Yes, itís time for Quzmanís Genealogy. Go
to the second screen in Pherkad (the one with the Cloudgull and the clouds that
you can walk into) and walk into the house on the right. You will meet Quzman,
a dying man who wants you to fill his family tree. He also wishes you bring the
relatives here so they can see him in his last days. Each family member wears a
bracelet, so they should be fairly easy to identify. First, get Taymiya,
Quzmanís current wife (the manís a pimp - heís 100 and on his fifth wife). Go
to the dock and speak to the little girl, Rushd, on the railing. Give her the
Dead Bluebird we got earlier and she will agree to go see her grandpa. Talk to
the little boy running around, Sallam, after you convince Rushd to go and he
will join her. Travel to Moonguile forest and talk to the man, Hawqal, who is
studying the birds. Since heís already been delivered a bird for studying, he
will happily sign the family tree. Go to Cebalrai and talk to the woman in the
stable, Surayj, looking at the Pows. She happily signs the family tree and
makes her way to Pherkad. Finally, go to Pherkad and talk to the woman in the
kitchen, Al-athir, that was given the Pow Milk Cheese. She will sign and be off
to her grandpaís. Honestly, how do these people name their kids?

Finally, itís time to head off. Save at the Blue Flower and take the Diadem
Liner in the port.

Wow... pretty pretty. No wonder Diadem is the land of the clouds. Head inside
the building and move towards the edge of the platform. There should be a small
gap. Inspect the gap twice, and then Kalas will jump down. He will be rewarded
with "Rock Salt" for his amazing jumping abilities. Head back up the stairs to
get the "Pine Tree" in the chest, and come back down to get "Fire Yell Lv. 1"
next to the salt.

Exit the storage building and head into the main town. Go to the dock and talk
to the man with the red hair. His name is Lyude and he is an imperial officer.
Grab the chests on the far right and far left docks ("Fire Burst Lv. 2", and
"Scale Shield") and then enter the house to the left of the shop. Grab the
"Carina Constellation" and talk to the Old Fortuneteller. She will tell you of
Malpercio and the Great Whale. After learning some history, head to the house
to the right of the shop and grab the "Feathered Hat" at the top of the bunk
bed. Itís finally time to head into the bar at the far right of Nashira.

In the bar, make sure to get the "Shortcake (S)" in the top right of the room.
Also, star at the dancing Greythornes and let their cuteness engulf you. After
that is over with, talk to Anna, the bartender to start a cut scene. She says
the no fisherman really takes strangers out in their boats, especially not
since the river has been flooded. Of course, she says the only man who might do
it is Gibari. As Kalas starts to leave, Gibari walks in, saying that he will
take them to Sheliak if they help him look at whatís making the Lesser
Celestial River flood. Reblys, the townís "head fisherman" completely objects,
stating the customs of Nashira. Gibari shrugs it off, and goes to wait in his
boat for the party. Go to the dock and head off towards the Lesser Celestial
River.

The enemies here like to poison you. Ouch. Luckily they drop Chestnut Truffles
once you beat them. On the first map, collect the "Chaos Edge", "Mana Stone"
(raises Kalas to Class 3), and the "Stream Blade". These are all extremely easy
to get, but there is one chest that is blocked by by waterflow. Weíll fix this
later.

In the second screen, grab "Camera 1" at the entrance, and then take the upper
path to get "Fire Burst Lv. 2" and the left path to get "Century Veil".

This level is fairly linear up to the boss battle, except for the waterfalls.
The avoid the waterfalls, wait until the third waterfall starts to flow. Walk
to its edge, and then run in the small pause when the waterfall flow switches
to the second waterfall.

Save at the Red Flower, and walk into the next screen. The flooding makes sense
now - thereís a huge waterfall in the top of the river! But wait... whatís that
inside? Could it be... the boss, maybe?

This boss likes to poison you. Not good. Bring plenty of Mineral Waters along
with you when you go into this fight. Try to avoid using Gibariís water based
weapons (which is admittedly hard). It would be wise to make Gibari the party
healer during this battle.


Kalas should go all out with his Fire Magnus which Xelha should focus on both
Fire and Dark Magnus. Make sure that you watch your HP - itís easy to find
yourself suddenly on low HP due to poison.

At the end of the battle, you get Energy Wave (Third finisher for Kalas),
Silver Anklet, and Constellation Pisces (fitting). The river returns to normal
and Cloud Passage is now open.
----

Before heading back to Nashira, go back to the Lesser Celestial River. Walk all
the way to where the Thunderfish was and cross the river. Pick up the "Hemp
Creel" and move to the next screen.

You are now below the Cloud Passage. There are two boys here, Rustah and
Qutayba, who are drowning. Save them, and they will go see their grandpa. Head
to the left, but enter at the lower left end of the screen. This will bring you
back to where the Thunderfish was, but Kalas is now on a little rock in the
middle of the river. Get "Cloak of the Dark Night", and go back to the
Thunderfish.

Examine the Thunderfish Skull to push it down the river. It will get stuck in a
rock, so you must examine it again. Once it makes it all the way down the
river, it was block the water flow to the final chest in the Lesser Celestial
River. It contains "Heron Statue", Xelhaís Class 3 item.

Head back to Nashira. Crap, the Empire. Level up, Class up Xelha, and save.
Head towards the bar where Reblys is staying. Anna is missing, and he wants you
to look for her. Go towards the storage room, and you will hear a woman
screaming and hitting and Imperial Soldier. Yup, thatís our Anna. Return with
Anna to the bar and she will show you a secret exit out of the town.

first one in between the two cloud paths.

On the fourth screen, bear to the right and use your last Cloud to connect the
path. Get "Constellation Cygnus" and "Aqua Burst Lv. 2". Head to the Red Flower

The Empire is obviously expecting company. This boss with up its attack power
and then attack you for 200+ damage. Daamn. Healing items are your friend here.

This is Gibariís time to shine. With his excess amount of water attacks and
finishing moves, itís necessary to go ALL OUT on Gibariís turns. Use Xelha to
heal, and have Kalas attack as well (give him a few healing items just incase
Xelha gets unlucky).

You are gifted with Soul Flash (3rd finisher for Xelha) and Shark Tooth (Class
3 item for Gibari).

Welcome to Sheliak, the capital of Diadem. Its streets are filled with the
famous Diadem clouds... and also Imperial Soldiers.

Soon after you enter the town, you will overhear Lyude protest to the capture
of Sheliak. Gibari doubts that King Ladekahn was planning an attack against
Emperor Geldoblame, and the party starts to worry even more about the safety of
King Ladekahn.

Ascend the stairs and enter the first house. Get the "Clock Shield" from the
shelves with the bowls on them, and also get "Light Flare Lv. 2" from inside
the room. Go one more house over and nab "Red and Blue Pencil" from the desk.
Move the bookcase to access a secret passage that allows you to obtain "Calm
Helmet" and "Ray of Truth". Finally, go into the last house to get "Voice 2"
and "Fading Notebook".

After plundering Sheliak, the party agrees that going right into Castle Elnath
is the wrong course of action. Instead, they decide to take an Imperial Boat to
infiltrate the castle.

Once you enter the castle, every one seem to be happy to see Gibari here.
Wonder why? Anyways, head down the stairs and through the door. Talk to the
Head Knight. He will give you another Blank Magnus and a "Diadem Royal Crest"
Quest Magnus.

The party is now in charge of knights. They are able to send out knights to
battle Geldoblameís forces, and the party can use the Diademy Royal Quest to
revive tired forces.

This is where the math comes in.

Allies:
Diadem Knights already fighting: 1
Senior Knight: 4
Knight: 2
Apprentice Knight: 1
Squire: .5

Enemies:
Imperial Elite: 1
Imperial Blackhelms: 2

You can stock up on Diadem Crests from the wall where the main crest is
located. To the left of that wall is a "Dark Sword". Move down the stairs. To
the right is a chest containing "Dark Flare Lv. 1". To the right is your first
knight battle.

Knight Battle 1: Deploy 1 Knight
Reward: Butterfly

Open the chest with "Light Flare Lv. 1" after the battle concludes. Go down the
stairs and enter the door to the left.

Knight Battle 2: Deploy 1 Knight
Reward: Chronos Aura 1

Go down the stairs and to the left. Here you can revived downed Knights. Revive
one Knight (leaning on bed) and add him to your group. In here, also get the
"Fading Notebook" and the "Magical Anklet".

Next, across the hall where you will engage in the third Knight battle.

Knight Battle 3: Deploy 1 Apprentice Knight and 1 Squire
Reward: Fire Aura 1

Head down the stairs.

Knight Battle 4: Deploy 1 Senior Knight
Reward: Light Aura 1

Backtrack to the room with the tired Knights. revive a Senior Knight, a Squire
(on the floor), Knight (leaning on bed), and Apprentice Knight (bottom bed). Go
back to the room where you just fought the Knight Battle. Head down the stairs
and get "Flash Armor" and "Shadow Suit". After that, go and help the knights.

Knight Battle 5: Deploy 1 Senior Knight and 1 Squire
Reward: Dark Aura 1

Move up the stairs in the top right corner.

Knight Battle 6: Deploy 1 Knight and 1 Apprentice Knight
Reward: Aqua Aura 1

Backtrack to the reviving room. Revive 1 Senior Officer and head back to the
room that you just fought the Knight Battle in. Open the door to the right, and
engage in the last Knight Battle.

Knight Battle 7: Deploy 1 Senior Knight
Reward: Wind Aura 1

Climb the window in the room that you just fought the Knight Battle in (you can
also go back to the Red Flower and save if you wish). Stuff Kalasís and
Gibariís decks with as many Light and Water Magnus as possible. Donít worry
about Xelhaís deck, she wonít be used in the coming boss battle. Walk through
the left door once you are all good to go.

So Emperor Geldoblame is accusing King Ladekahn of plotting against the Empire?
Blasphemy, I tell you. Of course, King Ladekahn is the noble king, and decides
to give himself up as long as he goes unharmed. Yah, right. Ayme then takes a
shot at King Ladekahn as heís walking towards them. So much for trusting the
Empire. Right as it looks like Ladekahn is having his final moments, Kalas,
Xelha, and Gibari spring to the rescue. Xelha moves Ladekahn out of the way to
take care of him, and he is extremely happy to see Gibari. Ayme then gets
pissed and gets in her tank. Oh crap. Good thing Lyudeís here to help!

Recommended Level: 12-14

This is the first time that Lyude will be used in battle. As you may or may not
know, Lyude only uses Light and Dark Magnus. This means that you should try to
use as many Light Magnus as possible when using Lyude. Fun stuff.

Anyways, Iron Beetle V mainly does neutral damage, but when it uses Driving
Drill, it will do massive neutral and fire damage. It can also heal itself once
during battle, completely restoring its lost hit points.

Just keep pummeling him with Lyude and Gibari while using Kalas to heal from
time to time and you should be ok.

After the battle is over, you receive Shadow Cornet and Crescent Buckle.

After the battle, King Ladekahn will thank you again, and reveal the Shrine of
the Winds to you, a place where the next End Magnus lies.

Buy Cypress Creel from the shop, and save and level up. Stock up on Chronos
Magnus and remove as many Wind Magnus as possible. Head out to the Shrine of
the Winds.

This is a fairly simple battle, it just can go on forever. Xelha should be used
because of her wide assortment of Chronos magnus. Make sure that you have
plenty of powerful defensive cards, regardless of element. This boss likes to
do a lot of damage.

He has two main finishing moves. The first is Slashing Winds, and attack that
does neutral and wind damage. The next is Miraculous Gale which might put your
enemies to sleep. Bringing a rooster would be wise.

Once the battle is over, you win a Coral Plant (Class 4 for Kalas) and Magic
Pen.
----

Yay! We get an End Magnus! Wait... Lyude... what are you doing? Lyude? LYUDE!
...Oh crap. Well, that officially sucks.

At the end of the battle, you return to Castle Elnath. Now itís time to explore
Sheliak and Elnath.

Return to the first house in Sheliak, the one that Lyude was in. It contains a
"Savings Book". While your in Sheliak, give the knight that is running around
either Stagnant Water (get this in Nashira), Pristine Water, or Pow Milk and he
will reward you with a "Shadow Cornet".

Head back to Castle Elnath, to the hall that connected to the reviving room.
Talk to the supervisor, who asks you to clean up the hallway. Move each piece
of rubble to the front or back wall. Go to the Heal Knight in front of the
Crest and he will reward you with "Constellation Hydra".

Go to the hallway outside of where Lyude is contemplating life. The supervisor
will ask you to clean up the rubble. Trap the rubble in a Blank Magnus, and
then discard that "Pebble" Quest Magnus that it becomes. Do this until all the
rubble is gone. Talk to the Head Knight afterwards and he will reward you with
a "Tempest Shield" and "Glass Earrings" for Lyude.

Return to Lyudeís room after youíve finished. He was hypnotized by Ayme to do
his bidding, and he isnít too pleased with himself. Lyude then asks to come
along to make up for what he did. Itís always good to have a fresh face in the
party.

Go to the castle airship dock where Ladekahn will give you a letter to
Anuenueís Queen Corellia. He bids you farewell as you make you way on the
Ladekahnís ship "The Mindeer" to Anuenue.

As you make your way towards the arch that leads to Corelliaís Palace, a solemn

but she is a fantastic monster hunter.

Keep heading towards Corelliaís Palace, but alas, itís blocked. The only place

To get into Corelliaís Palace, you must listen to the three lectures that the
teachers give. 2 are in the left side, 1 is on the right side.

In the first room on the left side, speak to the student in the front row in
the left side of the room. Talk to him four times, and then talk to the student
in back of him. He will reward you with a "Magical Piggy Bank".

In the last room on the right side, there is a green liquid in a vile. Taste
it, and get a "Silkworm" as a reward.

The path to Corelliaís Palace is now open.

Go straight to the left and open the door. Inspect the plant near the door to
get some "Deluxe Bananas". Next, go out the door and go straight to the right.
Inspect the plant near the door to get a "Flower Bud" and open the chest to get
some "Strawberries". Walk out the door and go straight upwards to Corelliaís
room. Check Corelliaís bed to get a "Mattress" Magnus, and then inspect the
candles to the left to get a "Hair Dryer".

Now that youíve stolen everything in the Queenís room, head up the huge stairs
to have a meeting with Corellia.

Once you walk in, who else should be there than Emperor Geldoblame himself?
*gasp* *shock* *awe* What a big Emperor he is, as well. When questioned about
the End Magnus (he knows nothing, riiiiiight?), he denies everything, and turns
the table on Lyude and Xelha, calling him a traitor and her a thief. Once he
and Folon leave, he says that Kalas is a threat to then Empire and must be
disproved of immediately. How does Geldoblame know of Kalas?

Back in the Queenís meeting room, Xelha gives Queen Corellia the letter from
King Ladekahn. Of course, Corellia tells the party of Anuenueís long stance of
not engaging in war. After the meeting, the party decides to find some way to
prove Corellia that there is a real threat.

One your away out, a woman will bump into you and tells you about the Ancient
Library of Magic. Guess where weíre going next?

Four books are hidden throughout the library that must be found. Take the key
on the shelf. It leads to the Geography Section. Also open the chest to get the
"Zeit Robe".

There are two chests in the Geography Section, "Sforzando" (finisher for Lyude)
and "Will-Oí-Wisp Hat". Push the first book left as far as possible. Walk
upwards and then left, and then down so your above the second red bookcase.
Push the bookcase far enough down so you can walk left and right, but close
enough so that you can walk downwards to reach the chest under the chest
containing Sforzando. Move right so that youíre right under the first red book
case. Inspect the book case right under the red one. Itís a bit to the right of
the first red book case. You will get the "Geography Book". Find the
"Philosophy Key" in the bottom left-hand corner.

Leave the Geography Section and accent the stairs. Go to the end of the hallway
to get "Wave Blade", the fifth finisher for Kalas. Go to the nearest door to
the stairs. Once inside, inspect the red bookcase with the key on top. Oh
great, it falls on the wrong side. Oh well. Keep moving upwards and move right.
Open the chest with the "Deluxe Shortcake". Keep moving upwards, and open the
chest on the other side of the bookcase. This holds a "Falcon Statue", a class
4 item for Xelha. Move towards the far door on the left.

This is the Philosophy Section. First, move downward and then left. Push the
red bookcase up about halfway, making sure not to push it against the far fall.
Grab the "Scarlet Shell" and the "Deluxe Cookies" from the ground. From the top
of the screen, push the red bookcase downward so that it is against the close
wall. Take the ladder up, and jump from bookshelf to bookshelf. Grab the
Literature Section Key from the top of the bookcase. Jump down, and inspect the
shelf that faces you for the Philosophy Book. Open the chest for the "Magnum
Cornet". Leave the Philosophy Section. Enter the other door in his room.

This is the Literature Section. Move straight to the left to get the "Silver
Sword". Move upwards, and then downwards. Push the red bookcase halfway down.
Move to the left and then downwards to get the "Ruby Earrings". Push the red
bookcase upwards so it is right next to the bookcase with the book on top.
Climb up the ladder and jump to the book. Take the "Literature Book". Take the
History Key from where it dropped before. Also take the "Kite Shield".

Return to where the front desk is and enter the far door. This is the final
section, the History Section. Take the "Deluxe Bonbon" and then take the two
chests in the top, "Constellation Taurus" and "Fruity Gelatin". Finally, take
the "History Book" from the end of the column on the far left. The bookshelf
should be facing you.

Now, you should have all four books. Check the bookshelves in the room with the
Red Flower. You should find 4 that you can place the books in. The door will
then open.

Hmm... No oneís in here. There should be a witch here. Oh no, itís a trap!
Folon, member of the Mad Wolf Unit, set Kalas and his party up. Thereís only
one way to take care of this...

Take Gibari along. Youíre going to want him since he is full of Water and Wind
Magnus. Ray of Truth and Crystal Mail are also great for this battle.

This battle starts off pretty easy and it seems like it will be over quickly.
Donít count Folon out yet, however. Once his HP gets down, Folon will whip out
Chaotic Flames, a devastating attack that does neutral and fire damage. He also
can paralyze a member of your party, which can severely damaging since he will
attack the character that is paralyzed.

Once he uses Energy Injection to increase his attack and speed, be ready to end
this battle quickly. The longer the battle goes on, the more of a chance that
Folon has at winning.

You get a Heartlight Candle (Class 4 item for Lyude) and Devil Eupho.
----

Even though you won the battle, your party is tired and Folon looks like he is
about to finish you off. Luckily, you get saved by random flames that seem to
come out of no where.

Outside of the battle, you meet Savyna, the woman that saved your sorry butt.
She tells you to come to Opu, which is on the other side of the Holoholo
Jungle. First though, we have some things to do.

Go back to the Ancient Library again and enter the Head Librarianís room where
you fought Folon to get "Water Mirror Anklet". Next, to go to the Literature
Section. Talk to the man who standing there. His name is Tufayr, and surprise
surprise, heís related to Quzman. He says that his sister is busy studying at
the School of Magic. He signs the tree and is off. Head there, and enter the
right side of the school. She is in the front corner of the first room on the
left. Her name is Tulun, and signs the tree. Head to the right side of the
school, and talk to the little girl on the far right wall. She is the
principal, and will give you the Landmark Stone, an item necessary for
traversing Holoholo Jungle.

This area is VERY hard to navigate. Very hard. It is beautiful though.

On the first map, walk upwards and then move to the bottom right. This should
lead you to an "Ice Crystal Buckle". Move back to the center, than move
upwardly left. This should bring you to the second screen. Grab the "Silver
Earrings" and move up the ladder and then go right to the next screen. Move
right where you can see six treasure chests that include a constellation and
Gibariís fourth finishing move.

Go back to the first screen and go downwardly right. You should be at the third
screen, and now you can finally leave Holoholo. Phew, that was some work.

Turn your voice acting off again. Yup, itís that time. The second offender of
craptastic voice acting: Mayfee. She would be kinda cute if she didnít sound
like a 30 year old chain-smoker (Kinda like Yunaís VA, but thatís for another
walkthrough).

Walk across the bridge to meet, yup, you guessed it, Mayfee. Sheís a Keeper of
the Celestial Tree. Sheís also a friend of Savynaís. Follow her inside to learn
her heartwarming story (itís more heartwarming when the voices are off -
Mayfeeís VA sounds like sheís about to keel over due to Lung Cancer) of her
dying Grandmother and her wish for Komo Mai Cookies.

Go back to Komo Mai and speak to the man outside of Corelliaís Palace that
talked about Komo Mai Cookies beforehand. He needs a Celestial Flower Seed. Go
into Corelliaís Room and inspect the shelves to the right of her bed. Celestial
Flow Seed get. Return them to the man to get a Komo Mai Cookie.

Now, return to Opu and give the cookie to Mayfee. She will believe the power of
the cookie made the mill start to work. Actually it was the guy behind the
wall. Darn. Turn your voice acting back on once sheís done, because youíre
about to meet one of the coolest gals in the game. Go to the bottom of the
village and talk to the woman. She joins your party and suggests that they go
to The Celestial Tree. Right on, but first, some things to do...

In Savynaís home, inspect the plants on the lower left wall to get "Ice
Knuckles". Go outside to find "Constellation Perseus", and then go into
Mayfeeís grandmotherís house. Look around the upper right wall to get "Curry".
Finally, go to the altar room to get "Flash Explosion" (Kalasís fourth
finisher) and "Uncooked Rice". Search the pots in the upper right corner to
find the final Opu Magnus, "Constellation Lupus".

Return to Komo Mai and talk to the man who sold you the cookies. He says that
he has run out of the seeds. Give him another one and he will reward you with a
"Doll". You can do this as many times as you like.

Go onto the field and make your way to The Celestial Tree.

(class 4 item). It should be noted that the Blood Leaves will randomly drop
"Constellation Ursa Major" and "Butterfly Barrettes".

Move down the tree, and then start to ascend the right side. Look! Mayfee! Move
up the tree again, and then descend to the far right. Rescue Mayfee, and start
going up the free again. Mayfee will open  the gate, and in you go.

So, now the Tree Guardian is talking about Malpercio. They sure like this guy,

Difficulty: 4/10
Music: The True Mirror ~Electric Guitar Version~
Recommended Level: 19-20

This is your first multi-enemy boss fight. In this battle, you should use
mostly Fire and Dark Magnus, so Gibari should not be used in this battle.

Attack the tentacles first, as they have a limited amount of HP. They might be
resurrected, but they can be easily be disposed of again.

When the Tree Guardian uses Banishing Water, make sure that you have powerful
fire armor to negate damage done. It would be wise to keep your Fire Magnus for
the Tree Guardian and rid the Tentacles with your Dark Magnus.

After the battle, you get Freezing Axe (fourth finisher for Savyna) and Dancing
Flames (fourth finisher for Xelha).
----

The End Magnus has been released and Savyna grabs onto it. (It looked like she
was about to pull a Lyude).

Lyude then reveals that an imperial soldier is in the party midst. No, itís not
Lyude... itís... SAVYNA! *twist* *gasp* *shock*. Yes, she is an Imperial
Soldier. Now its time for the last boss fight on Anuenue - the fight against
Savyna.

Weakness: -
Resistance: -
EXP: 0
Winnings: -
Difficulty: 2.5/10
Music: Metallic Stroke
Recommended Level: 19-20

This is a very simple battle. Heal right away, and you should be fine. Savyna
will use Burning Arrow from time to time. This will do some damage, but it will
also burn your party member. Flames do more damage per turn than poison, so you
should watch out and try to heal them if you have any items in your deck.

Savyna will also heal herself with Energy Capsule, but itís a very small amount
of HP.

Really, this battle just is a bit long. Make sure you donít mix elements (she
has no elemental affiliation) and use straights and combos. The battle should
go over very smoothly.
----

After the battle, Savyna reveals that she is not an Imperial Soldier anymore.
She and Mayfee head out, with Kalas and co. following along.

The blossoms really do bring out the beauty in The Celestial Tree, donít they?

Make your way to Komo Mai and speak to Queen Corellia. She faints when she
touched the Che End Magnus, but recovers shortly after. Though she is still
wary about conflict, she agrees that she will be of service to you on your
trip. Since Anuenue has no army, she advises you to travel to Mira to see if
Duke Calbren may be of use to their cause. Head to Anuenue Port, and then set
sails for Mira!

Ok, so weíre not in Mira yet, but weíre on the way there. While going through

Lyude up, since heís feeling pretty down. Actually... heís always feeling
pretty down. Once youíve talked to every one, speak to Gibari at the helm. This
cues a cut scene where the Goldoba comes up and starts blasting the way at the
Mindeer. Crap. The Mindeer veers off through the Trail of Souls to the Outer

9. Wheat Crackers
10. Camera 2

Make sure that every one is safe once youíve recovered. Go outside and this
will cue a cut scene. Kalas will start to recite Xelhaís prayer. She will walk
to him and tell him that that was the poem that she taught him when they met in
Moonguile Forest. How cute... wait, didnít he see her first in Cebalrai?

Off in the distance, a mysterious being wearing a mask sings a song, slowly
trudging along in his... er, hers... er... itís ship. The creature reveals
mizutiself as "The Great Mizuti". The Great Mizuti is lost as well (took a
wrong turn, ;D ) but The Great Mizuti knows the way out. Save at the red
flower, and then talk to Xelha.

This is an insanely fun shooting level. You control the Mindeer and are able to
pick up rare Magnus that they drop (you must run over the Magnus to get it).
Secret Recipe 4 is only found here, and so are the monsters here. This is the
hardest part of the game for the 100% people, so pay attention to the guide
carefully.

Iíve gotten a rather informitive email from Travis. He writes:

"Anyway, if you want to get the pictures you can play through it once and take
the pictures, anything you pick up after a fight is still in your inventory
when you play through again if Mizuti gets too far away from you and makes you
start over.. this helps for the people that want all the photos since you can
kill them next time and take the speed that they drop and use that to catch
back up to Mizuti if you need to.."

So, no more need to worry about loosing that 100% in here! Wohoo!

There will be four enemies on the left first. They will drop a "Half Plate". Go
to the right and then shoot the four that come at you. They will drop "Aqua
Burst Lv. 3". Go back to the left and shoot the next four that come to get a
"Crystal Edge", and then back to the right to get a "Shish Kebab (L)". Quickly
go behind Mizuti and start to strafe right to left, hitting the enemies as they
come diagonally. This will give you the "Ice Knuckles". Return to the center
and strafe left to right, rewarding you with a "Green Oak". Stay in the center
and quickly move from left to right, shooting the four enemies in a zigzag
formation. This will get you the "Kite Shield". If you want to get the enemy
pictures now, do it with the next group, since they do not drop a Magnus. Next,
move to the center and first to the right as the enemies appear. Start to move
left, still shooting, and then pick up the "Wheat Crackers". Stay in the center
and start to first to the left as the enemies appear. Start to move slightly
right, still shooting, to grab the "Camera 2" Magnus. Finally, center yourself
below Mizuti and fire from left to right to defeat the five enemies. This will
get you "Secret Recipe 4"

It looks like youíre finally going to get out, you are attacked by a huge
monster from another world. Only one way to deal with this...

damage. Kalas is also a good third member for the battle.

Unfortunately, this boss has great defense, so itís very hard to chip his HP.
Straights and Pairs of Light Magnus are the keys to this battle. Honestly, I
never got why they just didnít dump a bucket of water on the thing. He is made
of salt, you know.

For winning, you will receive an Ancient Branch (class 5 item for Kalas), a
Brave Knights Helm, and Constellation Andromeda.

Mizuti (excuse me, The GREAT Mizuti) will beckon you to jump through the hole
that the Gnosis has created. Viola. Back in the Trail of Souls. Bid adieu to
The Great Mizuti for now. It certainty wonít be the last time that you see The
Great Mizuti. Land on the field map for Mira and enter the only place
available: Parnasse. Before that though, go grab a quick bite to eat if youíre
hungry. You donít want to empty Parnasse on an empty stomach.

Wow. So much food... so much sugar...

Once you enter, you see two people, Tisocco and Donella, fighting over who has
the best pastries. In comes Lady Melodia, heiress to the Duchy of Mira. She
will trip and fall on her way over, and Kalas, being the gentleman he is, will
pick her right back up. She thanks him, and goes on her way.

Start by walking forward, to the room that Melodia entered. Inspect the draws
to the right to find "Chronos Armor". Inspect the cookies in the upper left
corner to get a "Fresh Beef". Leave, and enter the house closest to the
entrance of the town on the right.

As you walk in, you will meet one of Kalasís old buddies, Trill (remember, he
is from Mira). She has a favor for him. She asks him to do get some Mira
Chocolate from Donellaís shop. Before you leave, inspect the fridge in the
right corner to get a "Frozen Tangerine". Exit his shop and go to the shop
right next door (itís above Tisoccoís on the map). Talk to the man by the
chocolate vat, and he will ask you to get Mira Cream before he gives you the
chocolate. Go back to Tisoccoís and get the "Mira Cream" Quest Magnus from the
bottles to the left of the apple oven. Give it to the man by the vat, who will
let you take the "Mira Chocolate" Quest Magnus. Give it to Trill.

She will tell you of a shining object that she saw in the mystical garden the
other day. Thinking that this might be the End Magnus, Kalas and co. set off to
Detourne, the Mystical Garden.

Detourne is a great place it level up. I suggest you spend sometime here to
level up... a lot. This is also a very confusing but fun level. Detourne is
based off of an old Namco game called Tower of DRUAGA.

Jump over the red bock on the left and talk to the woman. Ask her about
everything. Enter the maze and defeat the two slimes. There are three stairs
that are ontop of each other in the middle if the maze. Take the top stairs.
Hop across the red block and talk to the hero. Talk to him twice and agree to
help him. He will reward you with "Jet Boots" and "White Sword". Jet Boots
allow you to travel faster in the maze. White Sword does nothing. Enter the
door on the right and defeat the third sword. Exit the maze once more from
where you entered and talk to the hero again. He will give you the "Red
Necklace" which allows you to travel through fire in the maze. Enter the maze
through the center of the top of the garden. This should bring you back to the
top middle stairs in the maze. Enter the center middle stairs to reach the
scales.

Open the chests containing "Silver Barrette" and "Whirlwind Hit" (fifth
finisher for Gibari). Collect two Pristine Water Quest Magnus from the moat.
Jump to the scales and put the two Pristine Waters in the blue side of the
scale. Return to the maze. Now, enter the bottom middle stairs. Cross the blue
block on the left and enter the left door. Get the "Golden Pick Axe" Quest
Magnus from the chest. Exit the maze and enter it from the bottom center door
in the garden. Now that youíre back in the maze, enter the the middle top
stairs. Snap the chain. Return to the scale room and use two Pristine Waters on
the red side of the scale. Exit the maze in the bottom center and collect the
"Key".

Stand in the center of the maze and wait there for 10 seconds. You should heard
a chime. Somewhere in the maze there is a chest with a "Green Ring". Once you
have the Green Ring, stand in the maze under the timer runs out. The Green Ring
will make sure the two Will-O-Wisps donít kick you out. Run into one of them.
Somewhere in the maze, another chest has appeared containing "Balance". Talk to
the Golden Hero and he will praise your efforts. This will allow the Hero to
change the red and blue cubes without using the scales.

Finally, use the Golden Pick Axe to get rid of the yellow walls and use the Key
to unlock the door. Enter.

Once inside, the Magnus start reacting oddly to the stone. The End Magnus
appears... but itís huge! This isnít the End Magnus! ...is it?

Do not use Xelha in this battle, since he is resistant to all of elements. He
attacks with Dark, Chronos, and Water damage. He will use Chronos Gage that
will sometimes paralyze you.

Kalas and Savyna are excellent for this battle, because they both have plenty
of Neutral damaging Magnus. Meets such as Beef and Bacon are also great for
this battle, since they can be given to anyone.

Once he looses HP, he will start to loose pieces of his card. When he haves
only a center left, he has 800 HP left.

Once you win, you will get Emerald Earrings and a Gleaming Helm.
----

There is no End Magnus here, only a shadow of what was once here. Kalas will
take the "Shadow Magnus", and Xelha will comment on the elements that are
associated with the End Magnus.

Return to Parnasse to find out that there is trouble afoot. Lady Melodia has
been kidnapped. Too bad for you, Kalas and co. are blamed for the incident, and
are put under house arrest in Parnasse. Inside, the party members will
contemplate for awhile before Gibari comes up with the brilliant idea of eating
their way out. The party then goads him into eating through the wall. Poor
Gibari... Once he makes a whole, Trill appears and helps them escape. Before
you go to Reverence, stop by Detourne and pick up a Mirage Weed.

Oh... my... God... Can you say "Acid Trip"? Besides the fact that the place is
basically one storybook, the town is inhabited by odd creatures that like to
talk in mysticism and dance. Weird.

Once you enter, a soothsayer will proclaim the coming of Malpercio and doom to
the world. Weíre working on that. Go to the Blue Flower if you need to level
up, and then head to the building to the right of the triangle woman on the far
back wall. Check the two dressers to get a "Monolith Pen" and a "tri-Crescendo
Pen". These are rather obvious tributes to MonolithSoft and tri-Crescendo, the
creators of the game.

Exit the "house", and talk to the odd creature on the left side of the bridge.
Give him a Mirage Weed, and he will start a rather hilarious cut scene where
the village interacts with itself and opens up a new entrance. Enter it, of
course.

This is the last of the three Old Fortune Tellers, though it wonít be the last
time in the game that you see them. She will comment that she feels now Magnus
within Kalas. The party is astonished, and Lyude comments that every being in
the world contains a Magnus within it. Still doubtful, Catra... er, the Old
Fortune Teller sticks with the story that Kalas contains no Magnus. Befuddled,
Kalas says that she doesnít know what sheís doing, and leaves.

Outside, two guards are talking about some shady characters near the Shrine of
Spirits. Leave Parnasse and head to Nekton on the map.

2. Constellation Corona Borealis
3. Water Blade

Kalas comments on how this is the place that you and him first met. Yah, it
was. Kinda weird seeing in color now, isnít it?

First, it would be wise to prepare Lyude and/or Xelha for the upcoming boss
battle, since he is weak to Dark and Wind Magnus. If you havenít been training
them, now would be a good time to level them up a bit.

The Fillers in this area will drop "Constellation Cepheus" and the Ray-moos
will drop the "Constellation Hercules".

Once you start, take the path that veers to the upper left. This path will lead
to a chest containing "Wind God Blade". Go back to where the paths diverged and
head to the lower left path. Grab the "Constellation Corona Borealis" in the
chest. Go north and get the "Water Blade". Head towards the Red Flower, save,
and then enter the next screen.

Here, you will see Melodia and the Mad Wolf Unit. She will be denying that she
knows anything about the End Magnus in Mira. Ayme will then comment that
Melodia is not to be hurt, as she is a "personal" friend of Emperor Geldoblame.
Eww...

Insert Kalas and co., RPG formation V. Before they can start fighting, they
eight accidentally summon a being from another dimension into Nekton. Time to
fight!

EXP: 4700
Winnings: Golden Buckle, Dark Embrace, Constellation Virgo
Difficulty: 3.5/10
Music: Glowing Clouds
Recommended Level: 25-26

This boss has low HP and low agility. He also has weaknesses which are very
easy to attack, seeing as you should have a wide assortment of Wind and Dark
Magnus by now.

At the start of the battle, Skiri will occasionally use Unholy Symbol, an
attack that will do Neutral and Light damage. This is a bit hard to block,
since many Kalas, Gibari, Savyna, and Xelha donít have an abundance of Dark
defensive Magnus to use.

Once he is almost out of HP, Skiri will use Life Drain, which can drain 250+ HP
from a character. In the end, you really have to rely on elements and make full
use of straights and pairs to do 300+ damage per attack. The battle should be
won without that much of a problem

You will receive a Golden Buckle, Dark Embrace (5th finisher for Xelha), and
Constellation Virgo.
----

After the battle, you the cavalry arrives, and Melodia is safe. She tells you
that her father, Duke Calbren, probably has more information on these End
Magnus.

Go back into Parnasse. Kalas will inspect their bad and find that... the Che
End Magnus is... GONE! *gasp* *twist* *turn* After inspecting all of Mira, the
party deduces that their must be a traitor. Who is it? Is there even won?

After the trouble, go to Balancoire, the capital of Mira.

The capital and the only normal city of Balancoire. Quite beautiful. In the

"Millinery" from the dresser in the back of the house.

Go up the stairs and enter the door to the far left. Take the "Pot of Air" from
the shelf in the back. Take the "Cedar Tree" in the bushes next to the close
right wall.

Exit, and enter the last house in this area. Take the "Deluxe Red Wine" and the
"Bacon" from the shelf to the far left behind the counter. Talk to the man who
revels himself as Trillís Father. Exit the house, and then go to the first
house near the entrance. Talk to the old man, who will comment amount Kalasís
and Trillís relationship. Notice Xelhaís reaction ;).

Finally, go up the stairs and go through the first door. Talk to the woman, and
leave. Some kids will talk about Kalas, and how he is a one winged curse. Lady
Melodiaís enters, and you are asked to go and visit her.

Go to Trillís Fatherís house and talk to him twice. He will ask you to train
his new employee. Go outside and talk to the main near the door. Once youíre
done talking to him, enter the house and talk to Trillís Father. He will give
you a "Scorpion Battle".

Finally, go straight to the left. Enter the huge castle.

Once in the Manor, you will meet Duke Calbren. He will say that the other
member of your party has already entered. Hmm? Go up the stairs and go through
the center door.

THE GREAT MIZUTI!! *ahem* Calbren will state that the End Magnus in Mira is
hidden under the Manor. Melodia is surprised, as she had no idea it was there.

They will open the door to the area below the Manor, and, guess what? THE GREAT
MIZUTI WILL JOIN THE PARTY! Score. Before we go down. Inspect the left drum
near the near wall to get the "Constellation Piscis Australis". Walk over to
the clock in the top left hand corner of the room to get "Jillís Jewelry Box".
Exit this room, and head up the stairs. Enter the room to the right. Grab
"Secret Recipe 5" from the large shelves on the left-hand side of the back
wall. Also, pick up "The Silent Woman" from the shelves in the right side of
the back wall, with the picture over it. Exit this room and head across the
hall. Melodiaís room. On the back wall, there is a dresser with a picture above
it. Inspect the drawers to the right of the dresser with the picture above it
to get a "Sleet Shawl". Take "Tearless Mermaid" from the foot of her bed.

Now that youíve looted Miraís royalty, return to the room with the trap door.
Go down, and grab the "Robe of Firelight" from the chest on the right. Go left
to enter the dungeon.

Monsters: Wookoob Kakish, Crystal Spider, Sbarb

Magnus:
1. Heavenís Pillar
2. Constellation Corona Australis

Uh... And you thought Detourne was weird. Cocolith is also known as The
Shattered Mirror dungeon. Each piece of the mirror shows the action from some
angle. Itís a rule of thumb that you start at a statue of a star and end at a
statue of a moon.

This area is shaped as a circle with a bridge cutting across it. The best place
to look is in the 2 pieces in the lower right-hand corner. One is right in the
corner, shaped as a triangle, and the other is to the upper left of that,
shaped as a trapezoid.

Start by walking left. You should be able to get on the bridge. Keep following
it until you can get to the little alcove on the other side. Open the chest to
get Mizutiís fourth finisher, "Heavenís Pillar". Exit the alcove, and follow
the circle to the left. You should end up at the exit moon. Press A to go to
the next screen.

The second area is backwards. You will see Kalas and his reflection. The real
Kalas starts at the star pole. Move above the star pole and go to the right.
Open the chest to get "Constellation Corona Australis". The rest of the mirror
is very straightforward, it is set in a zigzag matter. Just make sure that the
real Kalas reaches the moon pole.

This is the final area, and itís more confusing than the first. It is set up as
two circles that are on 45 degree angles that insect. Use the top three section
from the left to control Kalas. There is a red flower that you can see in the
second piece below the left corner on the map. Start to move to the right, and
then move downwardly right when you reach the convergence. Save at the red
flower, and head upwardly left. Once you read the next merge of the circles,
head upwardly right and enter the moon pole.

*phew* Finally, no more of those mirrors! But... Oh crap, Giacomo. He just
loves to do that. He will break all the mirrors, and viola, the End Magnus. Oh
no, itís been half awakened! Mizuti starts to contain it, and then Kalas bonds
it with the Shadow Magnus. Yay! Oh wait, Giacomo. Boo. Great, now we lost the
End Magnus AND we have to fight the stupid guardian.

Uh... Eh? What happened, Monolith? Where are my good end of disc boss battles?
Gah, oh well. I guess it doesnít really matter.

This boss is weak against Dark, so Kalas, Mizuti, Lyude, or Xelha are all good
for this battle. His two main attacks, The Lightning and Eyes of Terror, cause
mostly neutral and Chronos damage, so a healthy amount of Wind-based defensive
Magnus would be good to have.

Besides that, hit him like crazy with Dark and Wind Magnus and the battle will
be over before you know it. Iím serious too. At least he looks cool...

For winning you will get a Pinecone (class 4 item for Mizuti), Vanish Grenade
(level 5 finisher for Savyna) and Constellation Capricornus.

After the battle, Lady Melodia will allow you to use her ship to sneak into the
Empire. Sheís a personal friend of Geldoblameís remember, so she can do pass
by. There will then be a cut scene for the leaders of the islands, wondering
what the next move will be. Corellia and Ladekahn are seen together, discussing
the future of the world. The calm before the storm...

The heart of Alfard, the scourge of the Sky. After Melodia leaves with Fadroh,
enter the first house that you see. Take the "Pickled Eggplants" from the right
wall, and then inspect the object in the far back corner to get a "Viking
Helmet". Exit this screen and enter the next.

As the party is walking by, Gibari will bump into a young boy. He will explain
how rich he is, and how he is destined to lead the lower people like Gibari.
Lyude will explain that it is the natural teaching of children in Alfard. Go
left and you will see a cutscene where a hologram of Geldoblame is rallying his
people for the coming war. Great... Since you canít go up that way, go into the
small diner next to the hologram. Grab the "Coffin Shield" and the "Scale Mail"
from the chests. Inspect the pots in the lower left corner to get the
"Constellation Ara". Walk upstairs, and you will hear two soldiers gossiping
about the happenings in Alfard. Exit the diner, and go up from where the
pretentious little kid was talking to you. Enter the house to hear a story
about a crazed scientist that lived in Mintaka. Get the "Sleet Shawl" from
above the beds on the right wall, and an "Apple Pie (Slice)" from the glowing
object in the far right corner.

Return to the crowd, which is now gone. You can head up the way you couldnít
before. Lyude will explain that this is - or was - his house. Inside, Lyude
will be reunited with Almarde, his nurse from Azha. The reunion is cut short,
as Lyudeís *wonderful* brother and sister enter - Skeed and Vallye. Theyíre
kinda pissed about the whole traitor thing, and tell Lyude to give his friends
up to the Empire. Lyude, being the cool kid that he is, puts his foot down and
refuses to do it. Before Skeed and Vallye can shoot him, Almarde whips out her
gun! Oh yah, go old nanny! Unfortunetly for her, she is shot by the two
siblings. Damn damn damn. Lyude, heartbroken, weaps tirelessly for the only
person in the world that ever loved him. The party manages to escape, and winds
up outside of Lyudeís house.

The streets are crawling with Imperial Soldiers now, so itís important to watch
out where youíre going. Return to the port, and save. Make sure you do a lot of
training and leveling up in this area. A lot. You might have noticed that my
level recommendations have been a bit high so far. Itís because of this
upcoming boss battle. Gain at least 3 or so levels before getting on the ship.
Yes, I know it might be boring, but youíre going to need it.

Go through the bottom path to the main room in the battleship. First, go to
through the door to the upper left. Grab the "Rainbow Straw Hat" and grab the

There is one lone chest in this room on the far right room that contains
"Crystal Nails".

Go to the main room, and enter the door that is after the stairs. In here, you
can imput four digit codes. Imput the codes in this order:

0819 (Assasinís Hood)

Recommended Level: 30-31

Have you ever been to a Baten Katios message board and seen "Help on boss
battle on disc 2" or "Ship boss battle, HELP!"? This is that battle.
Fortunetly, you have me to help you out on this.

First, you should heal as much as possible. Giacomo attacks twice in a row, and
the other two have some truly annoying finishing moves. You need to heal. HEAL.
HEAL. HEAL. I canít stress that enough. Even if you feel like youíre on the
winning side of the battle, HEAL WHENEVER YOU HAVE THE CHANCE. It could be too
late.

Take out Folon first. He can cause flames, and he likes to use really powerful
attacks. Water damage is a must. Kalasís Water Blade is perfect for taking out
Folon. Once heís out of the way, focus your attacks on Ayme. She is weak, but
she has very long chain of combos that can eat into your deck. Mizutiís
Heavenís Pillar is perfect for taking out Ayme.

Once those two are out of the way, heal until youíve almost got every one back
at full health. You donít want to take on Giacomo alone with half HP. After you
have healed, go after him with Light damage (Lyude is good for this). Once his
HP is drained, he will start to use End Slasher and Imperial Force. No time to
heal. Go all out, try to kill him before you find yourself with one character
left.

After winning, you get a Hermitís Creel and and a Rarebird Statue (Class 5 item
for Xelha)
---Ė

Afterwords, Giacomo reveals that *gasp* *twist* *turn* Giacomoís father is
Georg! Then, he blows up the ship. Great. To escape, run to the center of the
of the ship and go down the right side. Grab the "Oil" Quest Magnus from the
bottom right corner and use it on the second tank from the left on the near
wall. You will escape from the ship and land in the Nihal Desert. After the
Goldoba crashes, youíll exit and find yourself on the Alfard Field Map. Enter
Azha Village.

This is the town that Almarde is from. Geez... how sad. Since you canít enter
the caves, go through the only door to the left. Take the "Green Tea" and head
upwards. Grab the "Crimson Oak Blossom" and the "Sculpting Knife". Head up a
little bit, and then head to the right. You should end up in a tiny alcove
containing "Constellation Lepus". Go back to the second cave, and head upwards.

These kids donít seem to like you (you being Savyna and Lyude). Oh well. Head
back down and head out towards the main part of the village. On your way out, a
little girl will run up to you and call Savyna a murderer. Phft. Savynaís never
murdered any one... Huh? Whatís this? A flashback? Lots of fire, and...! *gasp*
*twist* *turn* Holy crap, Savyna just killed that little kid! A man named Azdar
comes up and tells her that she needs to keep moving on. The cutscene ends and
the girl runs away. That explains why every one hates Savyna here... Walk
outside, and Savyna scares the crap out of the guards. Did I meantion sheís the
coolest person ever?

Before you leave, there are these kids running around that want something. The
easiest way to do this is get Rock Salt from the houses and give it to them.
Once you have given them 13 Magnus, you will receive a "Mephistopheles Cloak"
and give them 21 to get the "Secret Recipe 7". Now you can enter the caves.

~THE LAVA CAVES~
[LVCV]
~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~

Picture Clarity: 1 star
Monsters: Ceratobus, Foytow, Magma Beast, Lanocaulis

Magnus:
1. Dream Blade
2. Constellation Serpens
3. Grumble Pen
4. Shadow Thruster
5. Catfish Whiskers
6. Gold Earrings
7. Solar Saber
Quest Magnus:
1. Lava
2. Sparkling Snow

This place is called The Lava Caves, so bringing Fire Magnus is not a good
idea. Walk to the right and try to open the door. Closer. Gar. Oh look, an old
guy! He will invite you to his home to talk to him. Walk to the right to enter
his house.

The old mechanic will talk about Georg and Larikush, two men from Azha. Kalas
will ask you who Larikush is, and of course, answer that heís from Cebalrai.
Anyways, heíll talk about how great of a mechanic Georg was and how the Empire
took the two of them to Mintaka. Then, he asks Kalas if heís Giacomoís son.
This, of course, pisses Kalas off.

After he opens the door, return to his house and start to loot. Take the "Dream
Blade" from the chest (sixth finisher for Kalas). Inspect the barrel to the
right of the chest to get "Constillation Serpens" and inspect the bed in the
back right wall to get a "Grumble Pen". Go back to the double doors and enter
the main part of the cave.

Ooh... how hot. Take the left path, picking up the "Shadow Thruster" from the
chest. In here, walk up to the lava flow and Kalas will note how he canít get
by. Exit the main caves and talk to the mechanic again. He will tell you that
you need Flame Ice to get by. Enter the main caves again and take the right
path. See the ice? Grab that. Go back to the Mechanic, and he will make
Sparkling Snow. Take two, and enter the caves again.

Take the "Lava" Quest Magnus, and go back to Azha. Wait 30 minutes, and it will
turn into a "Hot Rock". Take this to the woman with the bad back in Azha. She
will be standing next to a bed in the first cave. She will give you "Cetakaís
Sword". Re-enter the lava part of the Lava Caves.

Go left, and use the Sparkling Snow on the lava flow. Go down the flow, and
then to the right. Get "Catfish Whiskers" (class 5 item for Gibari) and "Gold
Earrings" for Lyude. Go back to the right, up the ramp, and go to the right.
Use the final Sparkling Snow on this lava flow. Save, and inspect the shining
orb on the ground. Itís Xelhaís pendant! They must already be in there...

Before you go in, make sure your characters are equipted with items that resist
against Death. For Kalas, Golden Buckle works the best. Use the Water Mirror
Anklet for Xelha. Use the Moonlight Creel for Gibari. Unfortunetly, there is no
resist-death equiptment for Lyude, Savyna, and Mizuti. Light is also a must in
this next battle, so make sure that you have plenty of Light Magnus to boot,
and enter the next room.

Crap, Geldoblame has all 5 End Magnus. Oh damn... He uses them, and the evil
Godís castle, Cor Hydrae, appears in the Sky. Daamn. It appears thought that
the power it too much for Geldoblame. Oh crap, here we go.

Boss of The Lava Caves
Geldoblame

Picture Clarity: 2 stars
HP: 5500
Agility: 104
Weakness: Light (+80%), Wind (+30%), Water (+20%)
Resistance: Dark (-80%), Chronos (-30%), Fire (-20%)
EXP: 19,000
Winnings: Shadow Gate, Powder Snow Anklet
Difficulty: 7.5/10
Music: Doomed in the Netherworld
Recommended Level: 32-34

This fight is a biotch. For starters, he has the nasty "Forteit You Life"
finisher which causes Death to one of your character. He likes to use this
first in the battle. Sacred Wine and Holy Grail are you friends. After you
recover your character that died, and then go all out on him. You should attack
him for 2 or 3 turns, and then use 2 or 3 turns to heal yourself.

Light Magnus are a HUGE PLUS in this battle. If some one can pull of a 800
damage straight with Light Damage, you will do unthinkable amounts of damage
that will help. Geldoblame attacks with hefty Dark damage, so have plenty of
Light Defensive Magnus with you. Trust me, they help.

For winning, you get Shadow Gate (fifth finisher for Mizuti) and Powder Snow
Anklet.
---Ė

Before we continue, ask yourself something. Pause the game, do whatever, just
stop playing the game for a minute. Ask yourself this question: Do you like
Baten Kaitosís story? Is it too slow? In Baten Kaitos, there is something
called a transitional plot point. This is anytime in a story when it takes a
dramatic turn. This can be for the better or worse. Just keep that in mind. Ok,
you can resume gameplay now.

Bwhaha, weíve almost killed the pedophilliac psychotic Emperor who turned into
an octopus with wings, one hand, and boobies. Hmm... Ok, so, all good. But
wait... MELODIA?!?! O_O What the hell are YOU doing here? So Melodia now talks
about how she used Geldoblame to get the End Magnus... WHAT?!?! SHEíS EVIL?!?!?
And the traitor in our party is...
...
...
KALAS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

WHAT. THE. HELL?!

No Kalas! Donít bask in the light of Malpercio! DONíT DO IT!! Oh... daamn. You
did it. So great, Kalas is evil now. He has perfect white wings, perfect blue
eyes... and the game ends. Congrats, you just beat Baten Kaitos!

Just kidding. The best is still yet to come.

So now, everything is black and some one is crying. Faintly, you can see a girl
in pink with blonde hair. XELHA! Answer a few questions and bond with her.
Wohoo! She also has the most annoying run in the world, but that can be
excused, cause sheís cool.

Magnus:

2. Pot of Air
3. Whispering Wind
4. Spark Hat
5. Dark Flare Lv. 4
6. Constellation Scorpius
Quest Magnus:
1. Stagnant Water

Leave your cell and head to the one directly to the left. Take the "Fire Burst
Lv. 4" from the chest. Head out of the room, and go directly to the left. Head
left to the next screen. Enter the first cell and get the "Pot of Air", then
enter the last one to get "Whispering Wind", Xelhaís sixth finisher). Exit, and
Xelha will hear a huge explosion. Before going, get the "Spark Hat" from the
far left chest. Head all the way to the right and enter the gaping hole in the
wall.

Three ladies are waiting for you, and they seem to know Xelha. They are
Kodelle, Glamyss, and Catranne. As the chicken tells Queen Xelha to come wi...
wait... QUEEN Xelha? Where is she the queen of? Sadal Suud, Diadem, Anuenue,
Mira, Alfard... nope, they all have their respective royal houses. Weird. As
you leave on the White Dragon, Kalas will walk out, and stare as you fly to
Anuenue. I wonder how heís enjoying his life of evil?

In Anuenue, you will be informed that the three witches (ahh, theyíre witches!
...but how do they know Xelha?!) have been helping them battle the creatures
from Cor Hydrae. They will also tell you that Interdimensional Cracks have
appeared where the End Magnus were sealed, and that it is speculated that the
other members of you party are hidden within these cracks. Time to get
cracking! Get it? Cracking?! Ok, Iíll stop. Seriously...

"I know of no apology befitting such an oversight, but I ask for your
forgiveness." - Duke Calbren

Since you now have the freedom to travel all over, Iíve broken this section
down into the five continents that youíll be visiting. Each continent has an
Interdimensional Crack, though only four have our party members in (Guess who
the 5th one is going to be used for?). This is also the best time to do
sidequests that you may have missed before. So, letís go rescue!

Thereís ONE big thing to do FIRST. Take the Celestial Flower Seed from
Corelliaís room. Just... take it. Donít do anything with it yet. It needs 15
hours to turn into a Celestial Blossom, so it needs all the time you can give
it.

~~DIADEM~~

The next thing youíre going to want to do is get your party members back. Each
Interdimensional Crack requires a specific Quest Magnus that is native to that
island. On Diadem, you need the Cloud Quest Magnus from Cloud Passage. Get it,
and head to The Shrine of the Winds.

Youíre going to want to enter the omnious cloud things.

~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~
~THE INTERDIMENSIONAL CRACK: DIADEM~
[INDC]
~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~

How... creepy. Move forward, and youíll see a place to put a quest magnus, with
a riddle. We already have the cloud, so put that in. As the door opens, youíre
attacked by a servent of Malpercio!

~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~
Boss of The Interdimensional Crack: Diadem
Naiad
~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~

Picture Clarity: 1.5 stars
HP: 1400
Agility: 115
Weakness: Light (+80%), Water (+30%)
Resistance: Dark (-80%), Fire (-30%)
EXP: 5,000
Winnings: Spiraling Gale, Goldfish Bowl, Constellation Ophiuchus
Difficulty: 1/10
Music: Rumbling of the Earth
Recommended Level: 29-35

As someone that didnít use Xelha, this battle was very scary for me. I was
expecting a huge, powerful creature that would take hours to destroy.
Thankfully... no. Naiad is very easy to defeat. Very easy. No, Iím serious,
very easy. Just bash it with Light based attacks and this battle will be over
quickly. So quickly, I beat this boss in 2 turns.

You get Spiraling Gale (Gibariís 6th finisher), Goldfish Bowl, and
Constellation Ophiuchus for winning.
---Ė

Afterwards, you rescue Gibari, who was on... a cross? *remembers The Encephelon
from Xenosaga*. Now we just need Gibari to shoot some crazy lasers out of his
stomach while saying "Undo all your pain into me." Ok, maybe not.

Now letís do stuff in Diadem! Head to the Cloud Passage and take a Cloud. Now,
go to Pherkad and talk to the lady near the flowerbed on the first screen. She
will give you a Popular Pick-Up Line. Quickly zip back to Nashira and go into
Annaís bar. In the lower right-hand corner, there should be a man holding his
head. Give him the Popular Pick-Up Line, and walk out of the bar. Walk back in
and talk to him. He will give you a "Shako" as thanks.

By now, your Cloud should have turned into Salty Water. Give it to the man
cleaning graffiti in Sheliak. He will reward you will "Flash Armor". Get on the
Mindeer and head for Mira.

~~MIRA~~

This is a bit trick. First, go to Detourne and get a Mirage Weed. Since they
disapear in 10 minutes, you MUST be quick. Run to Balancoire, and then to the
basement of Duke Calbrenís Manor. Enter the crack.

~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~
~THE INTERDIMENSIONAL CRACK: MIRA~
[INDC]
~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~

Run forward, and place the Mirage Weed in the slot. If its gone, you have to go
back and get another one. Here comes the boss!

~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~
Boss of The Interdimensional Crack: Mira
Thalassa
~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~

Picture Clarity: 1.5 stars
HP: 2300
Agility: 116
Weakness: Light (+80%), Fire (+30%)
Resistance: Dark (-80%), Water (-30%)
EXP: 10,000
Winnings: Hurricane Blade, Golden Barrette, Constellation Cancer
Difficulty: 1.5/10
Music: Rumbling of the Earth
Recommended Level: 30-35

Now that you have two characters, this battle shouldnít be hard at all.
Thalassa has a bit more HP than Naiad, but itís not really a problem. Fire is
nice here, but Light is the real killer. He should be dead after a few turns.

Youíll get Hurricane Blade (6th finisher for Savyna), Golden Barrette, and
Constellation Cancer for winning.
----

Now you get Mizuti back. Yes. Of course, this means that you have two magic
users in your party. Hmm...

First, head to Parnasse. There is a pastry contest, and two people that you can
help. Each gives you something different. They are need the blue flower. Hereís
what they want:

Girl 1 (Left)
She is looking for a Celestial Flower Seed. Scurry over to Anuenue and get one
from the shelf in Corelliaís room. Give it to her and she will give you a "Silk
Robe".

Girl 2 (Right)
She needs Mountain Apple Wine, but sheís too young. Go to Sadal Suud and get
some from Cebalrai. Let it ferment for 2 hours, and then give it to her to get
a "Second Hand" Magnus. Kalas, Kalas... giving drinks to the underage. Bah.

Head to Balancoire and go into Trillís family restaurant. There are two people
to the left that want a Golden Nugget. Remember that Gold Beetle Carapace from
Anuenue? It should be a Gold Nugget by now. If you give it to the man, he will
give you a "Deluxe Pastry". If you give it to the woman, she will give you a
"Deluxe Cream Puff".

Exit, and go into the first house in the town and talk to the woman cooking.
She needs salt. Go to Alfard and get Rock Salt from Azha. Give her the Rock
Salt to get "Pork Ribs" (This works with Salt, but that would take the Clouds 3
hours to transform. This way is just faster).

Weíve finished Mira, onto Anuenue.

~~ANUENUE~~

First, head to Komo Mai and a Celestial Flower Seed. Itís the item needed to
open the crack. Go to The Celestial Tree and climb to the top. Enter the crack.

~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~
~THE INTERDIMENSIONAL CRACK: ANUENUE~
[INDC]
~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~

Give the seed and wait, thereís a boss battle here? WHO WOULD HAVE KNOWN?!

~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~
Boss of The Interdimensional Crack: Anuenue
Despina
~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~

Picture Clarity: 1.5 stars
HP: 3700
Agility: 117
Weakness: Light (+80%), Wind (+30%)
Resistance: Dark (-80%), Chronos (-30%)
EXP: 16,000
Winnings: Mega Flood, Tearful Birdie, Constellation Lyra
Difficulty: 2/10
Music: Rumbling of the Earth
Recommended Level: 31-36

This one is a bit harder, but you have three party members. Despina has an Hour
of Reckoning finisher which can instantly kill its victim. Ouch, but besides
that, thatís the only thing it has going for it. As usual, do an all out
Light-assault, and a Wind-assault with your secondary magic user, who ever that
might be.

For winning, youíll get Mega Flood (Mizutiís 6th finisher, Tearful Birdie, and
Constellation Lyra.
---Ė

Savyna. Awesomeness.

Make your way over to The School of Magic (right side). Go to the first
classroom and talk to the man sitting at the left end of the middle desk on the
right side of the room (phew). He needs help talking to a girl. Walk outside
and get a Popular Pick-Up Line from the man in the hat. Go back into the class
and give it to him. Leave the class, and return again to get a "Zeit Robe".

Now, go to Corelliaís Palace and talk to the soldier at the left end of the
main hall. He wants Pow Milk Yogurt. Only one place to get this. Head to
Cebalrai and take Pow Milk from the stable. Let it sit for 30 minutes and give
it to the guard. He gives you "Constellation Sagitta", and he also tells you to
come back later to get the rest of the reward. Ooh...

If thereís ANY chance that the Celestial Flower Seed has turned into the
Celestial Flower, head to Opu and give it to Mayfee. She will reward you with a
"Deluxe Shish Kebab". If not, keep hold of it and give it to her later.

While youíre in Opu, talk to the woman on the lower bridge. She wants to know
Corelliaís beauty secrets. Head to Corelliaís Palace, and go to the room to the
end of the right hall. Talk to the maid to get the "Secret Information". Give
it to the woman in Opu to get a "Crimson Oak Blossom". Now that weíre done
here, time to head to Alfard.

~~ALFARD~~

First things first, head to Azha and go to the Lava Caves. Grab Lava on your
way there, and head to where you fought Geldoblame and enter the crack.

~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~
~THE INTERDIMENSIONAL CRACK: ALFARD~
[INDC]
~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~!~

This time, things are a bit different. No, Iím just kidding, but this is the
last crack. Joy. Place the Lava in the wall and wait for the boss fight to
start.

~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~
Boss of The Interdimensional Crack: Alfard
Galatea
~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~

Picture Clarity: 1.5 stars
HP: 5600
Agility: 118
Weakness: Light (+80%), Chronos (+30%)
Resistance: Dark (-80%), Wind (-30%)
EXP: 21,000
Winnings: Crescendo, Amethyst Earrings, Constellation Libra
Difficulty: 3.5/10
Music: Rumbling of the Earth
Recommended Level: 35-37

A challenge? Not really, but this boss does pose a bigger threat than the
others. He has the most HP in a game so far. He will attack with Wind based
attacks, so Chronos is good. But, as usual, Light Magnus also work perfectly.

When you win, you get Crescendo (6th finisher for Lyude), Amethyst Earrings,
and Constellation Libra (wohoo, my sign!).
---Ė

Afterwords, you get Lyude. Score. Weíre not done yet. Go to Mintaka and get
"Girlís Thoughts" Quest Magnus from the house in to the left of the shop (itís
on the shelf in the top right-hand corner). Bring it to the girl blocking the
way in the top part of the Azha cave homes. Sheíll give you a "Red Oak" and let
you pass. Take the "Sunflower Coin" from the far left bookcase, and the "Jumbo
Pastry" and the "Pork Ribs" from the walls infront of you.

Weíre still not done yet. Sadal Suud is still left.

~~SADAL SUUD~~

If you want to go the Interdimensional Crack here, do so. Thereís nothing here,
but guess who this one would be for?

Talk to Quzman in Pherkad. He will give you "Sorcererís Seal" for completeling
Taymiyaís line and "Voice 4" from Sabinís line.

There is a dresser behind Taymiya that has a "Terrible Painting" Quest Magnus
on it. Bring it to Reverence in Mira and show it to the woman with the bracelet
(Misjah). She will agree to come back to Pherkad. Finally, inspect the picture
next to Quzmanís bed. Itís of his first wife, Usaybia. Quzman says that she
died, and adds her to the tree for you. Finally, return to Komo Mai and speak
to Corellia.

Mizuti suggests that they should go to the ice lands of Wazn and ask the
mysterious witch queen of Wazn. Hmmmm... witches? Head on the Mindeer and
youíll go to the that snow storm above Diadem.

Grap the "Forseti Robe" straight ahead, and then head left towards the glowy
thing. Touch it to turn it off. Head right and the upwards and then left to the
2nd glowy thing. Touch it and then head right, then up.

Head left, grabbing "Aqua Burst Lv. 4" along the way. At the small fork in the
road, go left to get the third glowy thing, and the right to get the final
glowy thing. Head left, and then down back to the sparkling snow, and then up
to the left, getting the "Tower Shield". Head up to the next screen. The shield
should be down now. Finally, get the "Sepherdís Purse", the class 5 item for
Mizuti. Head up.

Once you head inside, every one will start bowing to Xelha. WAIT. Queen
Xelha... OMFG!!! AHH!!! Youíll learn that Xelha was sent out after Barnette had
a vision of a great evil coming. The three witches, Kodelle, Glamyss, and
Catranne were sent out disguised as Old Fortune Tellers before Xelha to see
what was happening in the world. Xelha then had a dream about the end of the
world and lost most of her magical powers. Damn.

Check Xelhaís bed to get her fifth finisher, Dark Embrace. Check the tables in
the top and bottom left corners to get "Light Flare Lv. 4" and "Young Wasabi
Root". Go to the outside of the room and head all the way to the right and
enter the door by the Red Flower. Go all the way to the back and examine the
altar to get "Constellation Sagittarius". Exit, and head down to the 2nd floor.
Head all the way to the right and talk to the woman. She will give you the
third biggest sidequest in the game - the Wazn animal sidequest. Here are the
locations of all the animals that you need to find:

If you are going for the 100% run, do not give them the Warriorís Momentos
until they turn into Warriorís Memories. If you give them the Warriorís
Momentos, they will give you "Full Helm", and if you give them the Warriorís
Memories, they will give you a "Golden Bugle". Take the "Birdie Fatale" from
the top left, the "Phoenix Helm" from the bottom left, and the "Eel" from the
bottom left corner. Exit this room, and head down the stairs. Go up the left
stairs and inspect the table in the top right corner to get a "Green Tea". Exit

Prettyful. Actually, Wazn is REALLY prettyful. Go right first, and talk to the
woman with the bracelet (Yamin). She will sign the family tree and be on her
way. Go all the way to the left screen and take the "Cloudy Emblem" from the
far left. Enter the door on the right. Inspect the desks on the bottom left and
right to get "Dark Flare Lv. 4" and "Soybeans". Exit, and go to the left door.
Inspect the fish in the back and get "Constellation Ursa Minor".

Go back to Kaffaljidhma, and go up to the left to the White Dragon. After
finding out the dragon is a woman (hmm), you will learn that she has a very
special bond with Xelha, but the dragon is not hers. A messanger will arrive,
and will tell Xelha that the room is ready for her. Return to the third floor,
and enter the room near the Red Flower. Barnette will tell you that it is time
to take the trial. Enter the teleporter to the Lake of the Dragon.

There is only one fight here. Xelha will fight alone against The Goddess of
Ice, the collective beings of all the other Ice Queensí souls. No Ice Queen

Winnings: Ocean Mirror, Sacred Wine, Holy Grail
Difficulty: -/10
Music: Doomed in the Netherworld
Recommended Level: -

This is something... different. To win this battle, you must choose the same
Magnus that the Goddess of Ice chooses. Of course, this is completely random.
You have to do this four times to win.

To add a bit of a twist, there is a Camera 1 Magnus to take a picture of her,
and a Chance Magnus. The Chance Magnus will lower all the Magnus down to two.
You have a 50% chance of getting the choice right. This battle can either be
insanely easy or insanely hard depending on your luck.

For winning you get the Ocean Mirror, Sacred Wine, and Holy Grail.
----

Afterwards, Xelha will receive the Ocean Mirror, an ancient relic that sealed
away Malpercio. It can also free some one that has basked in the light of the
cursed God. Once you return, Barnette will need you to do one more task before
you get to ride the White Dragon. Go to Cursa and talk to the sculptor and he
will send his son to make the statues. Go back to the ritual room, and he will
tell you that he needs Sparkling Snow.

Head to Gomeisa, but before you get it, you should see a man, Gabirol, calling
out for his daughter, Yunnis. Go and rescue his daughter by going to where she
is and she will sign. Go back, and talk to Gabirol to get him to sign as well.
Get the Sparkling Snow, and go back to the sculptor. Once he is done, it is
time to give them weapons. The bottom left needs a shields, the top left has a
bow, the top right carries a halberd, and the bottom right should have an axe.
Go to the shop in Cursa and rest your wings, and then head back to the ritual
room. You will now be able to ride the White Dragon to Anuenue.

As you leave, Barnette will confess to you that the Ocean Mirror will not be
able to save Kalas. That female dog!

This place is rather huge. There are five floors in this place, each crawling
with hordes of monsters. Plus, we get some rather eery insight to the persona
of Geldoblame.

Start by heading directly right. You can fight the Iron Beetle II if you want.
Afterwards, open the two chests to get "Wave Cutter" and "Light Flare Lv. 4".
Now, enter the fortress. Go left, and then left again, and then left again. Get
the "Fire Burst Lv. 4" from the bottom right corner, and head back one screen.
Take the left elevator to the 2nd floor. Go all the way to the left and take
the "Deluxe Cream Puff" from the mantle to the right of the bed. Then, take the
"Wolf Fangs" from the bed. Head back to thr right until you reach the screen
that splits into two directions. Go up, and take the "Aqua Impulse". You can
also get the Bunnycat here if youíre doing the Wazn Animal Quest. Go down, and
the right. Take "Aqua Yell Lv. 1" from the sinks, and then open the second
stall. This holds a "Phoenix Helm". Open the third stall and you will see a
soldier... uhh... doing things. Take the key from him. Go back to the left set
of elevators on this floor to go up to the fourth floor.

Look framiliar. Thatís because, *gasp* itís where Xelha was being held! Go left
and inspect the desk. Take the Elevator Key from the desk. Then, head all the
way to the right and go to the outside, where the witches escaped with Xelha
before. The two chests include "Constellation Scorpius" and "Dark Flare Lv. 4".
Return to the second floor, and go to the right more set of elevators. Take
them up to the 5th floor. Go to the right. MAGNUS GALORE! There are 5 Magnus in
this room, including "Inferno Fists", "Efreeti Suit", "Dragonfly", "Asura Tuba"
and a "Blood Sword". Joy. Updrade your decks with your new with your new ass
kickers, and head all the way to the right to the screen with the Red Flower.
You will then get a flashback where Geldoblame exiled Lyude for talking against
him on Operation Sweep. Poor Lyude... On a side note, I love the way the games
does flashbacks, with the filtering effects and all. Take the "Aqua Burst Lv.
4" and the "Full Helm". Read the fairly hillarious description of Geldoblameís
throne, and take the "Golden Bugle" from behind it. Go outside, and take the
elevator outside the throne room to the 3rd floor. There is an energy field,
and Lyude will tell you that there is a place where it must be fixed. Yay. Go
to the right.

Oh. My. God. Words can not describe the shock, the pain, the scare that I was
in once I entered this room for the first time. This is... Geldoblameís room.
Just... donít ask. Take the "Birch" from the rocking horsey, and the "Crown of
Bubbles" from the clothing on the floor. You can also get "Cute Doll" from the
bed. Creepy. Grab 4 "Stagnant Water" Quest Magnus from the bathtup in the
middle of the room (again, just donít even try to think about it. It just makes
it worse). Head to the right, and go back up to the 3rd floor. Go right, and
then up. Inspect the globe, and fill it with the water. Joy, the force field is
gone! Save, and head back to the 3rd floor.

When you head right, Fadroh will interrupt you. Awww damn, heís gone all
psycho-y too. (Is he wearing bellbottoms?) Anyways, time for the most hated
fight in Baten Kaitos.

Weakness: Light (+50), Wind (+30%)
Resistance: Dark (-50%), Chronos (-30%)
EXP: 45,000
Winnings: Camera 3, Freezing Axe
Difficulty: 6-10/10
Music: Glowing Clouds
Recommended Level: 40-45

This is an interesting battle to say the least. In the start of the battle,
Fadroh may use Orb of Magical Offense on his first turn. He may not use it at
all. All I know that if he uses it early in the battle, youíre screwed. He does
1000s of damage each turn. Itís almost impossible to win.

If he doesnít use it though, heís quite easy. Always heal, as thatís an
important part of this battle. Block with Light and Wind Magnus, and attack
with those elements too. When you win, you will get Camera 3 and Freezing Axe
(Finisher IV for Savyna)
---Ė

After you win, go back to the Blue Flower in Azha to level up. It shouldnít
take that long to get to. Keep continue the the way you were going before, and
save at the new Red Flower.

Oh, thereís Melodia... and Kalas. With the cool wings. I wish he had an extra
costume where he had those wings. Thatíd be cool.

Anyways, Melodia orders Kalas to attack the party. Crap.

Difficulty: 6.5/10
Music: The True Mirror ~Guitar Version!
Recommended Level: 40-45

Lukcy for you, Kalas isnít that hard. This battle is kidna long though, and I
recomend using either Mizuti or Xelha. These two have really slow attack
animations, and by now you should have an assortment of magic Magnus, allowing
you to pull of a multitude of damage. Theyíre also at Class 5, which is a big
plus.

Kalas will use Fangs of Darkness from time to time to steal some HP, but it
will be minimal. He also will use many-Magnused combos that can drain the
Magnus out of your deck. Be wary of how many Magnus you have left.

After a while, he will start to use Binding Winds, where heíll paralyze you and
then steal your HP. Annoying. This is where Paralysis resistant equiptment
comes in. Heís kinda a pushover though. Still... those wings... Totally awesome.

For winning you get nothing, unless you took a picture of him, in which youíll
get that.
----

Melodia will then use your partyís power that are tied to the power of the
islands and the power of each other as the fabric to create Malpercio. Cool
concept, but sucks for you. Oh, wait! Xelha whips out the Ocean Mirror! Yay!
Uses on Kalas! Boo... Then, she gets a flashback to where Barnette lied to her.
That female dog!

Kalas yells at Xelha to use the Mirror on him. She canít though. Melodia
destroys the mirror, and every oneís starting to die. And then, oh crap... ITíS
MALPERCIO!! *dun dun DUN!* So now that youíre all about to die, Kalas goes to
try to attack Melodia and Malpercio. Note: Kalas, this is why we donít make
deals with satanic little girls.

When it looks like all else is falling, Kalas, in possibly my favorite cutscene
in the entire game, rips off his wing. Feathers fly everywhere, and Melodia is
in complete shock. No mortal could do that. Who exactly is Kalas? Nevertheless,
Malpercio is still going to kill us. But... THE GREAT MIZUTI? Thatís right, the
Great Mizuti uses powers so awesome, that they are able to wound Malpercio.
Outraged, the two evil-ings return to Cor Hydrae Castle.

Kalas is now having flashbacks with Fee and Georg. Aww... what a family. He
really did love his brother. Wait... Georg... comitted suicide?! Giacomo tried
to save his father, but he just stepped back into the fire. Poor guy. And as
they leave... Savyna. Savyna was there. Hmm... interesting.

When he wakes up, the party forgives Kalas, and Mizuti tells every one that
they should go to Mizutiís homeland, below the Taintclouds. Time to head to the
Earth Nation - Duhr.

First, Iíd like to thank MonolithSoft and tri-Crescendo for creating this
amazing game.
Second, Iíd like to thank Namco for publishing this game and bringing it over
to the States.
Third, Iíd like to thank Nintendo for making such a great console to play Baten
Kaitos on.
Fourth, Iíd like to thank all the people at Brady for writing the Baten Kaitos
guide. It really helped me with locations and other pieces of data.
Finally, Iíd like to thank all of the people at the GCNGB at IGN. Yes, I know
that that place is one of the weirdest boards out there, but you guys put up
with me whoring out Baten Kaitos for months. You deserve some recognition.
Thanks every one!
