[3] CHARACTERS                                                          [0300]

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

==============================================================================
 KALAS
==============================================================================

Kalas is a young lad that is on a journey to avenge the death of his brother 
and grandfather. His grandfather was a fantastic engineer and since Kalas was 
only born with one wing, his pa built him a Winglet. Like I stated earlier in 
the introduction, Kalas is no ordinary hero. He is an ass and does whatever 
he wants, whether or not it's "the right thing to do".

Kalas is spiritually bonded with a Guardian Spirit (you, the player). The
Guardian Spirit ends up answering questions that determine your relationship
with Kalas. The better it is, the stronger your attacks will be. If your
relationship with him is the best it can be at the end of the game, you unlock
a secret ending.

Kalas is your balanced player. He is with you for basically the whole game, 
and he should always be in your party. Kalas is not the strongest or fastest, 
but his finishers are very good later in the game.

----------------
Finishing Magnus
----------------

 Blue Storm - Wind-based finishing attack. Found after defeating Sabre Dragon.
              Considering it's your first finisher, it isn't very useful late
              in the game.

 Shadow Wings - Dark-based attack. Found in the Lord's Mansion (make sure to
                pick it up on your first trip there). Pretty useful finisher
                that should be used for a while.

 Energy Wave - Wind-based finisher. Found after defeating the Iron Beetle. It
               is much better than Blue Storm and I think it should be used
               throughout the whole game.

 Flash Explosion - Fire-based finisher attack. Found in Opo after giving
                   Mayfee some Komo Mai cookes. This is a very strong finisher
                   that should always be in your deck upon obtaining it.

 Water Blade - Water-based finishing attack. Found in a chest in Nekton,
               Shrine of the Spirits. Not as powerful as the others, but it
               should always be used.

 Dream Blade - Chronos-based attack. Found in the Lava Caves. This is a
               powerful finisher and should always be used.

 Fangs of Light - Light-based finisher. Found in the Labyrinth of Dur.
                  Probably the most important finisher next to the last one,
                  so use it frequently.

 Chaotic Illusion - Chronos-based finishing attack. Found after defeating
                    Giacomo, Ayme, and Folon. This is much better than 
                    Dream Blade and should replace it.

 Lord of the Wind - Wind-based attack and is Kalas's final finisher. Found in
                    Cor Hydrae. It is definitely Kalas's best and most useful
                    finishing attack. 

---------------
Class-Up Magnus
---------------

 Wild Strawberry - Raises Kalas's class to Level 2. Found after defeating Lord
                   of the Spring.

 Mana Stone - Raises Kalas's class to Level 3. Found in the Lesser Celestial
              River.

 Coral Plant - Raises Kalas's class to Level 4. Found after defeating Lord of
               the Winds.

 Ancient Branch - Raises Kalas's class to Level 5. Found after defeating
                  Gnosis.

 Azure Sand - Raises Kalas's class to Level 6. Found before fighting the trio
              of Giacomo, Ayme, and Folon in the Celestial Alps.


==============================================================================
 XELHA
==============================================================================

Xelha is a mysterious young girl that meets up with Kalas in Cebalrai. They 
part ways at first, but meet up shortly later when Kalas saves her from a 
monster. Xelha was being protected by two friends who are killed by the 
monster, and the duo end up working together. She has a strange connection to 
the Empire, and little is known about her past.

Xelha is your basic magic user in the game. You will get another mage way 
later in the game, so she is your best bet for most of the game. Since Xelha, 
like Kalas, is with you for nearly the whole time, always use her in your 
party. She has a wide variety of magic spells at her disposal, which makes 
her a great addition to your team.

----------------
Finishing Magnus
----------------

 Dance of Light - Light-based finisher. You already have it when Xelha first
                  joins your party. Like Blue Storm, it's good until later in
                  the game.

 Sparkle of Light - Light-based finishing attack. Found after defeating 
                    Giacomo. Much better attack than Dance of Light; keep it
                    for a while. 

 Soul Flash - Light-based finishing attack. Found after defeating the Iron
              Beetle. This is better than the other light finishers, but not
              the best. Nontheless, it should be kept in your deck until the
              end of the game.

 Dancing Flames - Fire-based attack. Found after defeating the Tree Guardian.
                  Not as powerful as the other finishers, but great for foes
                  weak against fire.

 Dark Embrace - Dark-based finisher. Found after defeating Sikri. This is her
                only dark finisher, but it isn't that powerful later in the
                game. Still, keep it in your deck for a long time.

 Whispering Wind - Wind-based finisher. Found in the Imperial Fortress. A 
                   great addition to your finishers and another very strong
                   one as well.

 Bells of Fate - Chronos-based attack. Found in the Labyrinth of Dur. Grab
                 some water jugs and bring it with you to the Cancerite. Give
                 him the water and he'll give it to you. It's not the most 
                 useful finisher, but you should keep it with you at all 
                 times.

 Seal of Water - Water-based finishing attack. Found after defeating
                 Kulcabaran. It's a semi-powerful finisher; just not as
                 important as the others.

 Wheel of Light - Light-based finisher. Found after defeating Sibling God He.
                  This is Xelha's best finisher and one of the best finishing
                  attacks in the whole game. ALWAYS keep it in your deck.

---------------
Class-Up Magnus
---------------

 Shrike Statue - Raises Xelha's class to Level 2. Found in the room that she
                 was imprisoned in the Lord's Mansion.

 Heron Statue - Raises Xelha's class to Level 3. Found in the Lesser Celestial
                River. After killing the Thunderfish, let its skull drift down
                to the entrance of the river. Then hop onto the stone and open
                the chest for it.

 Falcon Statue - Raises Xelha's class to Level 4. Found in the Ancient Library
                 of Magic before fighting Folon. 

 Rarebird Statue - Raises Xelha's class to Level 5. Found after defeating
                   Giacomo, Ayme, and Folon for the first time. 

 Linnet Statue - Raises Xelha's class to Level 6. Found in the Illusory
                 Fortress. 


==============================================================================
 GIBARI
==============================================================================

Gibari used to be the head of the knights in Diadem. He now resides in 
Nashira and spends his time fishing and travelling the land on his boat. He 
teams up with Kalas and Xelha to find out why the Lesser Celestial River is 
flooded and sticks with them for the rest of the time. He's a kind-hearted 
bloke, but sometimes his temper can get the best of him.

Gibari is a real powerhouse. He is the strongest party member when you first 
get him and ends up being one of the most powerful throughout the game. He is 
slow though, and most of his attacks are Water or Wind type, so Gibari should 
only be used when his elemental attacks are needed. 

----------------
Finishing Magnus
----------------

 Dragon Uppercut - Water-based finisher. You already have it when Gibari joins
                   your party. It's the weakest of his finishers and just not
                   nearly as good as his other water-based ones.

 Crystal Shot - Water-based finisher. You already have it when Gibari joins
                your party. Pretty useful attack that's certainly better than
                Dragon Uppercut. Keep it in your deck for a while.

 Explosive Paddle - Fire-based finishing attack. Found in Anuenue Port. 
                    Although Gibari may be a water-based fighter, this move
                    is very strong. It may not be as useful as his other
                    finishing attacks though. 

 Smash Tackle - Chronos-based finisher. Found in the dense jungle of Holoholo
                Jungle. This finisher is very powerful and one of Gibari's
                best. Definitely reserve a spot for it through the rest of the
                game.

 Whirlwind Hit - Dark-based finisher. Found in the Mystical Garden. It is a
                 strong finishing attack, but Gibari's other dark attack is
                 obviously better. Still, it can be useful at times.

 Spiraling Gale - Wind-based attack. Found after defeating Naiad. This is one
                  of Gibari's best and very useful at times. You should
                  certainly keep this with him for the rest of the game.

 Pendulum Blast - Light-based finishing attack. Found after giving 40
                  Constellation Magnus to the old guy in the church. This is
                  another strong and useful finisher, but it's hard to get.
                  Unless you are following a guide, you may not get it for
                  quite a while.

 Nemesis Fall - Dark-based finisher. Found after defeating Brokolis. It is
                better than Gibari's previous dark finisher, but not too
                useful through the rest of the game.

 Ultimate Geyser - Water-based finishing attack. This is Gibari's third Water
                   finisher and his final one. Found after defeating Sibling
                   God Le. This is helpful against another Sibling God and
                   overall a powerful finisher. 

---------------
Class-Up Magnus
---------------

 Shark Tooth - Raises Gibari's class to Level 3. Found after defeating the
               Iron Beetle.

 Scarlet Shell - Raises Gibari's class to Level 4. Found in the Philosophy
                 section of the Ancient Library of Magic.

 Catfish Whiskers - Raises Gibari's class to Level 5. Found right before
                    fighting Geldoblame in the Lava Caves.

 Buoy of Light - Raises Gibari's class to Level 6. Found in the beginning of
                 the Greater Celestial River


==============================================================================
 LYUDE
==============================================================================

Lyude was once a member of the Empire (well, he still is in the beginning of 
the game). He is an Ambassador and frankly doesn't like his job that much. He 
ends up joining with the good guys after realizing how truly evil the Empire 
is. He's a silent dude and seems to be shy/nervous. Lyude is still a good guy 
that is an essential member to the party.

You first get Lyude right in the beginning of a battle, so he's thrown into 
your party. He may seem pretty lame at first, but his large range of Dark and 
Light attacks are very useful later on. He is also pretty strong, but doesn't 
have a lot of Defense Magnus at first. Use him the most when you need a Dark 
or Light fighter.

----------------
Finishing Magnus
----------------

 Overture - Light-based finishing attack. You start off with this finisher. It
            is his weakest finisher so far, but sub-par compared to other
            starting finishers.

 Concerto - Light-based finisher. Like Overture, you also start off with this
            attack. It is the same element as the previous finisher and is 
            more powerful than the previous one. 

 Sforzando - Dark-based finishing attack. Found in the Ancient Library of
             Magic. It is another powerful finisher and a pretty cool one to
             boot. Definitely useful throughout the rest of the game.

 Diminuendo - Dark-based attack. Found in the Outer Dimension, when fighting
              the eigth wave of enemies. Although it is not as cool-looking 
              as Sforzando, it is a lot more powerful. Keep both in your deck
              at all times.

 Intermezzo - Light-based finisher. Found in Mintaka. You can't get it the 
              first time you're here; you must wait until the event where the
              party gets split up. It's found in Lyude's house. So far, this
              is the most powerful light finisher that Lyude has.

 Crescendo - Dark-based finisher. Found after defeating Galatea. It's a good
             finishing attack overall. Find some room in your deck and leave
             it there, or just replace it with weaker finishers.

 Rhapsody - Light-based attack. Found in a chest in Zosma Tower. Aside from
            Lyude's final finishing attack, this is the best light attack he
            has. 

 Presto - Dark-based finishing attack. Found after defeating Rampulus. This
          is Lyude's best dark finisher, so keep it in your deck at all times
          and replace it with some weaker ones.

 Finale - Light-based finisher. Found after defeating Sibling God Bo. This is
          one of the most powerful attacks in the game and certainly Lyude's
          best. It's very useful against the final boss. 

---------------
Class-Up Magnus
---------------

 Heartlight Candle - Raises Lyude's class to Level 4. Found after defeating
                     Folon for the first time. 

 Platter of Parting - Raises Lyude's class to Level 5. Found in the Labyrinth
                      of Dur. 

 Jasper Gem - Raises Lyude's class to Level 6. Found in the Phantom Goldoba.
              It is immpossible to miss; found in one of the side rooms of the
              main hall.


==============================================================================
 SAVYNA
==============================================================================

Savyna is a very cunning mercenary and a mysterious individual. She is a 
monster hunter and is found at times bringing dead beasts to be sold. 
Townsfolk generally avoid her as she is a little strange. Little is known 
about her, although she does seem to be a wanderer and a loner. Savyna can be 
cold and ruthless at times, but only at certain times will she show positive 
emotions towards people. Savyna is a really talented fighter and can prove to 
be worthy at times.

Savyna relies on speed and power most of the time. She doesn't have much 
defense at the start, but boy, can she dish out the damage! As Lyude 
specifies on Light and Dark, Savyna is all about Fire and Water. Just like 
Lyude, Savyna should only be used when needed because of her low range of 
elemental Magnus.

----------------
Finishing Magnus
----------------

 Burning Arrow - Fire-based attack. Found when she first joins your party. It
                 is another basic finisher and can really become worthless
                 later in the game. Still, it can be handy when she is new to
                 the party.

 Erupting Flail - Fire-based finisher. Found when she first joins your party.
                  Just a simple (yet cool looking) finisher that is more
                  powerful than the previous one. Keep it with you for a while
                  until you obtain better ones.

 Splash Spear - Water-based finishing attack. Found when she first joins your
                party. This is the strongest of her starting finishers, but
                it won't be very useful at first. Still, it is a very strong
                attack when used in a specified situation.

 Freezing Axe - Water-based finisher. Found after defeating Tree Guardian. The
                next water attack is more useful than the previous. Actually,
                it's one of the best for Savyna for a while. 

 Vanish Grenade - Fire-based finishing attack. Found after defeating Phantasm.
                  This attack is quite powerful at this point in the game. 
                  Keep it in your deck for the whole game; it's very useful.

 Hurricane Blade - Water-based attack. Found after defeating Thalassa. You
                   should be using this strong finisher for a while, for it is
                   the strongest one for her so far. Keep it close to you for
                   the rest of the game.

 Inferno Cannon - Fire-based attack. Found in Algorab Village. Just by the
                  name, you should realize that this is a cool finishing move.
                  Like all other finishers, this is stronger than the previous
                  ones. This one is a great addition to your finishers.

 Hellblood's Hammer - Water-based finisher. Found after defeating Sowzana. 
                      Like the previous finisher, this one also has a cool
                      name. :) Anyways, it's also the second strongest move
                      Savyna has, so it should have a surefire place in your
                      deck for the rest of the game.

 Deadly Heat Scythe - Fire-based finishing attack. Found after defeating
                      Sibling God Ar. This is Savyna's most powerful attack
                      and most definitely her most useful one. Stick with it
                      for the rest of the game.

---------------
Class-Up Magnus
---------------

 Wild Cherry Bud - Raises Savyna's class to Level 4. Found in the beginning of
                   the Great Celestial Tree. 

 Purple Rose - Raises Savyna's class to Level 5. Found in the Garden of Death,
               hidden behind the main house.

 Dragon Plum Bud - Raises Savyna's class to Level 6. Found in Nihal Desert.


==============================================================================
 MIZUTI
==============================================================================

And I thought Savyna was strange. Mizuti is a masked shaman and is one weird-
ass dude! (well, dudette) Pretty much nothing is known about the Great Mizuti 
at first, for she has a mysterious past and you meet her somewhat late in the 
game. Lucky for us; Mizuti is a very talented fighter.

Mizuti is a spellcaster, just like Xelha. Hell, they're pretty much identical 
stat-wise and such. They are basically the same, so it's only preference to 
whom you use in your party. 

----------------
Finishing Magnus
----------------

 Sorcerer's Chakram - Non-elemental finisher. Found when Mizuti joins your
                      party. This is the first neutral finishing attack (out
                      of three), and Mizuti is the only one that has them. 
                      It's an interesting finisher for that aspect, but there
                      are stronger ones.

 Sorcerer's Breath - Non-elemental finisher. Found when Mizuti joins your
                     party. This is another non-elemental finishing move. This
                     is stronger than the previous move, and it should be kept
                     in your deck when fighting enemies with high elemental 
                     resistance.

 Sorcerer's Seal - Non-elemental finishing attack. Found when Mizuti joins
                   your party. This is the best neutral finishing attack in
                   the game, so save a spot for it in your deck.

 Heaven's Pillar - Chronos-based attack. Found in the Labyrinth of Mirrors. 
                   There aren't many Chronos finishers in the game, so keep
                   this one with you for the rest of the game.

 Shadow Gate - Dark-based finishing attack. Found after defeat Geldoblame. The
               finisher is very strong and a definite pick to stay in your
               deck, for it's really useful through the game.

 Mega Flood - Water-based finisher. Found after defeating Despina. Another
              powerful yet useful finishing move. If you have the room, stick
              it in the deck, although it isn't the best move for Mizuti.

 Prominence - Fire-based finishing attack. Found after defeating Agyo and
              Ungyo. Just like Mega Flood, it's strong and useful, but not
              necessarily the best finisher out there.

 Alias Fall - Wind-based attack. Found after defeating Wizard Shadow. Not many
              enemies have a weakness to Wind, but it is an insanely powerful
              move. I suggest keeping it in your deck.

 Planet Soul - Chronos-based finisher. Found after defeating Sibling God Che. 
               Like I said before, a Chronos finisher is a rare sight. With
               that said, keep it with you and use it constantly; this
               finisher kicks ass.

---------------
Class-Up Magnus
---------------

 Pinecone - Raises Mizuti's class to Level 4. Found after defeating Phantasm.

 Shepherd's Purse - Raises Mizuti's class to Level 5. Found in the Ice Cliffs
                    of Gomeisa.

 Trandescantia Petals - Raises Mizuti's class to Level 6. Found in Zosma 
                        Tower.

[4] THE BASICS                                                          [0400]

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

==============================================================================
 CARD BASICS
==============================================================================

Like I said earlier, Baten Kaitos is of course based on a card battle system. 
Neat, eh? (I'll leave that up to you) The game still has a turn-based battle 
system as well, but it's a lot more complicated than that.

The cards in the game are called Magnus, and you will use them for everything 
throughout the game: healing, collecting items, and simply proceeding through 
the game. You can find Magnus all over. You can buy them from shops, be 
awarded by people, found after defeating monsters, there are so many ways to 
acquire these cards. 

Upon looking at these cards, you will realize some of their uses. Some Magnus 
can only be used on the field screen; these are called Camp Magnus. Others 
can only be used in battle (which are the majority of the Magnus). Some are 
Quest Magnus, and they are used for story purposes. As you can see, there's a 
wide variety of Magnus in Baten Kaitos.

One last thing; you may notice a small number in the corner of a Battle
Magnus. These are called Spirit Numbers, and they can help you out in
battles. More on that below.  


==============================================================================
 BATTLE BASICS
==============================================================================

Despite being a card battle system, the game still has a turn-based battle 
system as well, but it's a lot more complicated than that.

There are six elements in Baten Kaitos, and they are: Fire, Water, Light, 
Dark, Wind, and Chronos (Time). Like in any RPG, some contradict each other. 
For example, fire is weak against water (and vice versa), dark is weak 
against light (and vice versa), and so on. 

The battle system is very deep. When you enter a battle, you are first given 
the choice to attack. Several cards are revealed on the screen. The Attack 
cards (Magnus) are used to deal damage to your opponent. At first, you are 
given an infinite amount of time to choose your first card to use. Later in 
the game, you will only have a matter of seconds to make that decision. 
Picking one card isn't it. You can choose numerous cards for your turn. 
Leveling up your character's class will increase the number of cards you can 
use on a turn. 

After you attack, a screen will appear and show the accumulated damage and 
the total damage dealt. It also shows a lot of other tidbits, like if a card 
you used had an elemental weakness against the enemy, if you recovered HP 
during the turn, etc. It's really informative, so take a good look at it. I'm 
not telling you to study it every turn, but take a note of it instead of 
rapidly pressing A to get to the next turn. It sometimes provides you with 
very useful information. 

When the enemy attacks, you will be in a defensive stance. You still have 
Magnus to choose from, but they will be used to defend. Once again, you can 
use a number of them for your defensive turn. 

Let's get to the technical stuff now. The elemental stuff always gets in the 
way, right? Just about all enemies and bosses are of an element. That means 
that they are strong against one and weak against the other. If you use an 
elemental card that the enemy is weak against, the damage dealt will go up. 

So if you know what the enemy is weak against and you have a lot of that 
card, use them all to deal the most damage possible. You can see if the enemy 
has an elemental weakness on the screen after your turn. If an elemental card 
has a + with a number next to it, it means you dealt extra damage because of 
the weakness. Then again, a - means damage was reduced because of an 
elemental strength. 

If you happen to use contradicting elemental cards in the same turn, damage 
will also be reduced that way. The weaker one will be subtracted from the 
stronger one. For example, if you use a Fire and a Water attack in the same 
turn, they'll pretty much cancel each other out. The same thing goes for 
defending. Don't use a Wind and Chronos defense Magnus, for the weaker one 
will be subtracted from the other. That's not good, because more damage will 
be dealt to you! 

One last thing: Spirit Numbers. The numbers can be used to your advantage,
for using Magnus in a certain order (by their Spirit Numbers), you will
create a combo, which in turn deals more damage. For example, if you use four
Magnus in your attack turn. You use them in this order (by Spirit Numbers)
1-2-3-4. That's a combo, and you will deal more damage (shown on the screen
after attacking).

There are a lot of other combos you can utilize. Simply pairing up two cards 
with the same Spirit Number will work. Patterns also work out as well. For 
example, 1-3-7-3-1 is a combo, as well as 6-6-7-7-2-2. Try all different 
methods in order to find new combos.


==============================================================================
 LEVELING UP
==============================================================================

Leveling up is a little different in Baten Kaitos. It isn't like other RPG's 
where you will level up after gaining enough experience right after a battle. 
And of course, fighting battles and defeating enemies nets you experience. 
Once you reach a certain amount of experience, you must visit a church. 

Churches are only accessible by blue (save) flowers. Once at the church, talk 
to the priest and you are given the option to level up (if able to). So 
whenever you find a blue flower, pay a visit to the church to see if you can 
level up. 

When you talk to the man in the church, you are given two options: you can 
level up or class up (of course, only if you've met the requirements). 
Leveling up is what I just talked about, but there's a little bit more to it. 
Not only do your stats grow when you level up, your deck capacity increases. 
Whenever you level up, your deck capacity increases by 5. That means you can 
put 5 new cards in your deck.

Now about your class. Your class determines how many cards you can use in 
battle. It also determines how many cards you can have in your hand. The 
highest class you can reach is level 6, which means you can use up to 6 cards 
when you reach that level. The only way to class up is to find certain Magnus 
scattered around the world. When you find one, bring it to the church and you 
will go up one class. 

That's pretty much the bare-bones basics of the game. I hope it helps.

 +-------------------------------+   The giant blue flower is a save flower.
                                     When you step inside, it asks if you want
to save your game or enter the church. The church is where you level/class up 
(and where you can find the Constellation man). You can only access the 
church through blue flowers. The red flowers (usually found in dungeons) only 
let you save. You can't enter the church just yet, so make sure to save your 
game before heading on.

Head to the left to the town square. Talk to everyone here, and enter the 
houses. Even head into the stable and speak with the people inside. When you 
proceed near the bridge at the bottom, you will find a creature and a girl. 
You find out that the Greythorne, Meemai, saved you in the forest. You will 
thank her. After talking, go to the house in the back of town to speak with 
the mayor. Afterwards, talk to the girl again to find out she's being 
escorted to Moonguile Forest. Kalas ends up following her to the forest.

When on the world map, walk to the left and enter Moonguile Forest.

There is a guy sitting on the ground in the next area. Talk to him to learn 
all you need to know about battling. The log to the right is blocking the 
path, so ignore it for now. Defeat the enemies here and go north under the 
trees to find a Leather Hat. Cross the stream and open the chest for a Bamboo 
Shoot. 

I suggest fighting enemies in these two areas until you have around 80 EXP. 
When you have enough, go back to Cebalrai and enter the church via the blue 
save flower. Talk to the priest in the back to level up. The man near the 
entrance is trying to retrieve Constellation Magnus scattered around the 
world. Whenever you find any, bring them to him for a reward. For more info,
check out Section 7. When you reach level 2, return to Moonguile Forest.

Alright, when you return to the forest, proceed across the stream. Make sure 
to put your new Magnus in your deck. When ready, go north to the next area. 
You will find the girl, Xelha, who is being attacked by a vicious dragon. Her 
guardians are slain, and Kalas steps in to protect her.

 BOSS: Sabre Dragon
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 230           Weak: Water (+80%)          Strong: Fire (-80%)

 Drop: Blue Storm, Fire Burst Lvl. 1, Draco

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

 First off, the battle music for this fight is friggin' awesome. One of the 
 best in the game. That is all.

 Talk about easy bosses, right? Considering this is your first boss, have no
 worries. The Sabre Dragon is capable of dishing out three-hit combos, so 
 watch your health. Use your Bamboo Shoots when your HP is low, especially 
 Xelha, who has lower HP than Kalas. The nasty thing has a weakness to Water.
 Kalas may not have many Water Magnus in his deck, but that's why Xelha is 
 here. She has a slew of magic spells in her deck. That's another reason to
 keep her alive;she is the best offensive member in your party.

 Stray away from using Fire Burst and use combos (if possible) and Water
 attacks. Kalas can use normal attacks to take down the Sabre Dragon's HP just
 as quickly. You can also use Xelha's finisher if it comes up. If you have the
 chance, take a photo of Sabre Dragon, since it can rack in a nice amount of
 money if you can pull it off.

 You should have no problem defeating this monster, so relax and use it like a
 practice battle for other tougher battles in the future. After defeating the
 Sabre Dragon, you recieve Blue Storm (finisher for Kalas), Fire Burst Lvl. 1,
 and a Draco Constellation Magnus. Pretty good deal!

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After you kill Sabre Dragon, Xelha will mourn the loss of her guardians, her 
good friends. Kalas, being the complete asshole that he is, tries to steal 
their stuff for money. The two bicker for a while, then decide to team up for 
they're both heading deeper into the forest. (considering how they were just 
acting towards each other, that was actually unexpected) Go to the next area.

There is one more area to go through until you reach the heart of Moonguile 
Forest. Walk through the forest path, defeating the enemies along the way. 
You can find a Flame Sword and a Fire Burst Lvl. 1 in the two chests here. 

Save your game at the red save flower. Remember that you can only save your 
game at the red flowers, nothing more. You can only visit the church at blue 
save flowers, so you're out of luck. Save your game and make sure to replace 
as many Water Magnus with Fire Magnus. Give Kalas his finisher, then head to 
the next area.

As you reach the spring in the middle of the forest, a voice will call out to 
you, and a large monster rises out of the water. Another boss? So soon? Yep!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Lord of the Spring
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 300           Weak: Fire (+80%)           Strong: Water (-80%)

 Drop: Wild Strawberry, Scale Buckle

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

 The Lord of the Spring isn't that hard, but he is indeed harder than Sabre 
 Dragon. Make sure that you replaced the Water Magnus with Fire ones, because
 Fire is his weakness. In the beginning of the battle, he will use small
 combos against you. They shouldn't be too dangerous though, so don't worry.

 When you start to damage the boss, then he will use a longer combo, and end
 it with an attack called Thundering Falls. It is a fairly strong attack, so
 use Bamboo Shoots when you get the chance. Also make sure to counter with
 your Fire Magnus.

 Use Kalas to deal neutral damage as well as attack with his new finisher,
 Blue Storm. Xelha should use all the Fire Magnus she has in her deck for 
 this battle. Her finisher also works wonders here. After damaging Lord of
 the Spring a lot, he will begin to use a new attack.

 His combos will finish with Dragon Press, an even stronger Water move that
 can really dish out the damage. Try to give him the finishing blow before he
 can use it again. Also, you may want to take a picture of him (as well as
 every boss you fight) to gain some cash. You will receive a Wild Strawberry
 and Scale Buckles for your troubles.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

As the Lord of the Spring dies, he will warn you of the coming of Malpercio. 
Kalas learns that Malpercio is the God of Destruction. And well, he's evil, 
if you hadn't figured it out already. The dead monster drops a shining 
Magnus. As the two try to grab it, a large airship comes down from the sky. A 
high-ranking man comes to take the Magnus. 

Kalas recognizes the man as the one who killed his grandfather and brother. 
Before he has a chance to attack the murderer, soldiers knock the two 
unconscious. You wake up to find Meemai with you. Xelha has been captured, 
and Meemai tags along with Kalas as he leaves for town again.

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

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: Explosives, Pow Milk, Mountain Apple, Stoked Flame, Ice Dagger,
           Puppis

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

When you're back in Cebalrai, Dr. Larikush tells Kalas to visit the mayor. 
Talk to the mayor at his house to recieve a lecture on how dumb you are for 
going into the forest. Yawn. Afterwards, go to Larikush's house and talk to 
him. He will teach you how to use Blank Magnus. You can use Blank Magnus to 
trap the essence of items. He tells Kalas to go to Nunki Valley and clear the 
landslide over there. 

Walk up to the dynamite on the table and press A to trap the essence of the 
explosives. After, talk to him again. Walk outside and get the Mountain Apple 
essence in one of the barrels. Give it to Dr. Larikush by using the C-Stick. 
He will reward you with an Ice Dagger.

Go inside the house next to the shop and talk to the woman. She needs Pow 
Milk to finish her cooking. Head to the stables and collect Pow Milk essence 
in the barrel. Return to her and give her the Pow Milk to get a Puppis 
Constellation Magnus. Go to the mayor's house and grab the Stoked Flame 
essence. Now is a good time to save and visit the church. Give your 
Constellation Magnus to the man and level up at the priest. You can also use 
the Wild Strawberry to level up Kalas's class to level 3. 

Once ready, take a return trip to Moonguile Forest. Head to the battle basics 
guy in the second area, then use the Stoked Flame to burn down the log. You 
will find an Ice Dagger. Head to the area where you fought the Lord of the 
Spring and open the chest for an Escape Magnus. Put this in a deck 
immediately, then exit the forest into the world map. Head to Nunki Valley to 
continue your quest.


==============================================================================
 NUNKI VALLEY                                                           [0504]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Shawra, Unuk, Doomer
   Magnus: Flame Shield, Frozen Shield, Secret Recipe 1, Pristine Water

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

When you first enter Nunki Valley, approach the fallen tree. Walk across it 
to the upper ledge. Go down to the dead end for a chest. Open the chest to 
obtain a Frozen Shield, and make sure to put it in your deck. Return to the 
other side and go down the path. The path will be blocked by a small stream. 
Wait until the gushing water stops, then press A to jump across. Jump on the 
rock, then across. Continue down the path to the dead end for another chest, 
then open it for a Flame Shield.

Back at the entrance, go up the steep path. Just like before, you will have 
to wait for the water to stop. When it is calm, jump across. Head to the next 
area. When you reach the rocks, use your Explosives Magnus to destroy the 
rubble. Now your pathway is cleared! Proceed down the path and take out the 
enemies. Take the upper path near the stream.

Jump across the rocks, then head right to the next area. You should find a 
chest containing a Secret Recipe 1 behind the waterfall. Return to the 
previous area and hop back across the rocks. Take the other path to the new 
area.

Once on the other side of the waterfall, head up the ladder. Continue around 
and go behind the waterfall. Defeat the enemies up here, then proceed north 
to exit Nunki Valley.

 PHERKAD                                                                [0505]

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: Dark Flare Lvl. 2, Shish Kebab (M), Pine Tree, Pyxis, Nameless
           Flower, Pebble, Mountain Apple, Weak Flame, Mountain Apple Wine,
           Terrible Painting

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

 +-------------------------------+   As you can tell, Pherkad is a lot more
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   lively than the previous town. The first
 +-------------------------------+   thing to do is to talk to the girls on
 | Mink Coat.................350 |   the ground. They'll give you the Pyxis
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   Constellation Magnus. Make sure you talk
 | Wind Blow Lvl. 1..........260 |   to everyone on the streets. One man will
 | Flame Sword...............250 |   give you a Dark Flare Lvl. 2 just by
 | Light Flare Lvl. 1........230 |   talking to him! The nearest house to the
 | Bananas...................180 |   right holds a Shish Kebab. It should be
 | Chain Mail................120 |   on the bookcase at the far end of the
 | Chunk of Ice..............100 |   room. Exit to the streets again and go
 | Shish Kebab (S)............30 |   into the farthest house away; all the
 +-------------------------------+   way in the back. You can find a Pine
                                     Tree in some barrels near the entrance.
Now you can head north to the next area. Man, this place sure is cloudy! The 
entranceway to the right leads to the home of Quzman. For more information on 
this sidequest, go to Section 8. Pass through this area and go through the 
archway. You will find yourself at the gates of Lord Rodolfo's Mansion. Of 
course, the guards won't let you in. 

After talking to them, you will find a woman angrily chasing a young boy. 
Apparently the kid is a thief. Go back to the streets and enter the house on 
the right nearest the entrance; the same house you found the Shish Kebab in. 
You will find the kid, Palolo III, inside. Kalas asks him if there is a 
secret entrance to the mansion. Palolo keeps his mouth shut and will only 
help you if you happen to find him a Rainbow Spider's Web. Before you can ask 
where it's found, Palolo disappears.

The Rainbow Spider's Web is found back in Nunki Valley. It must be obtained 
from a monster, though. A very powerful monster. Let's head back to the 
valley now. 


==============================================================================
 NUNKI VALLEY                                                           [0506]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Shawra, Unuk, Doomer
   Magnus: Flame Shield, Frozen Shield, Secret Recipe 1, Pristine Water

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

Alright, we are back in the valley! There's nothing new here to find, but 
collect the other items if you haven't already. I suggest that you be around 
level 5 for this battle. You can find a blue flower in Pherkad, back near the 
docks. When you are around the desired level, head down the ladder and past 
the waterfall. Hop across the rocks again past the stream, then head to a 
small pathway to the side. You should see a giant nasty spider lying in 
there. Go down the ladder and approach the monster to start the fight.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Nunkirantula
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 350           Weak: Fire (+50%), Dark/Wind (+30%)
                 Strong: Water (-50%), Light/Chrono (-30%)

 Drop: Duel Sword, Light Flare Lvl. 2

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

 The Nunkirantula is a pretty formidable opponent. It is mainly a Water-based 
 opponent, but it's weak against many things. You don't really have many Wind 
 or Dark Magnus, so stick to utilizing it's weakness to Fire. Plus, it has a 
 bigger weakness to Fire than other elements. Nunkirantula has a one-hit or a
 two-hit combo that is Water based, so use those Flame Mails.

 A VERY annoying attack that Nunkirantula uses is Hardening Wax. This attack
 greatly boosts its defense. This will render normal attacks pretty much
 useless, so definitely rack up combos and use any Fire Magnus. Make sure to
 use Blue Storm against Nunkirantula to deal a lot of damage. Also, bring
 along several Bamboo Shoots or Bananas to keep your HP up.

 Still, The Nunkirantula isn't really THAT hard; it is just really annoying.
 After you defeat it, you will get a Duel Sword and a Light Flare Lvl. 2 for
 your effort. Of course, you will also get what you came here for: The Rainbow
 Spider's Web.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

With the Nunkirantula defeated, return to Pherkad. 

You can find Palolo III in his secret hideout (go all the way to the back of 
the streets, then enter the area next to the house with the Pine Tree in it) 
Give Palolo the Rainbow Spider's Web, and he'll tell you that the secret 
entrance to the mansion is down the well. After an argument, Kalas and Xelha 
split up for the moment. Go down the well to enter the Lord's mansion.


==============================================================================
 LORD'S MANSION                                                         [0507]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Imperial Soldier
   Magnus: Frozen Shield, Chain Mail, Ice Dagger, Mink Coat, Shadow Wings,
           Wind Blow Lvl. 1, Chronos Blow Lvl. 1, Moon Buckle, Shrike Statue,
           Intrigung Mystery, Stagnant Water, Nameless Flower, Weak Flame

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

Kalas will jump out of a fountain and lands in the foyer of the mansion. Go 
up the stairs in front of you to the next floor. Here, Imperial Soldiers will 
patrol the floor. If they spot you, they will chase you. If caught, you'll 
have to battle them. You can run away from them, but I suggest getting the 
EXP by defeating them all. First off, get the Frozen Shield straight across 
from where you came up. 

You can't go in the doors now, so go up the stairs to the left. You can find a
Chain Mail Magnus all the way to the left. Enter the room and collect the
Guestroom Key on the table. Once you grab the key, Rodolfo and a servant will
enter the room and have a conversation. Kalas will hide himself behind a
couch. After the conversation, they leave. Grab a Wind Blow Lvl. 1 Magnus from
the chest. Exit the room and go back downstairs. 

Now you can enter the rooms. The room to the left (nearest from your location)
holds a Mink Coat. Go into the room next to it to find a new finisher for
Kalas: Shadow Wings. Put it in your deck immediately. Across from the
centerpiece, enter the room to find Xelha inside. She tells Kalas that she was
captured. After the scene, she will join the party again. 

Collect the Shrike Statue and Chronos Blow Lvl. 1 from the chests in the 
room. I suggest going through her deck and giving her newer, stronger Magnus. 
After re-equipping her, exit the room. The last room to the right has an Ice 
Dagger inside. After raiding the rooms, continue up the stairs to the right.

You will find a blue save flower here. Enter the church first and level up. 
The Shrike Statue you just found lets you raise Xelha's class to level 2. At 
this point, you should (hopefully) be around level 6. Give the Constellation 
man any more Constellation Magnus, then leave. Save your game when you're 
done. The path here will be blocked by statues, but Xelha knows how to get 
by. After disabling them, go up the stairs. 

Kalas and Xelha will find themselves on the dock of the mansion. The airship 
seen back in Moonguile Forest, the Goldoba, is docked here. Not a second 
later, it starts to disembark. The party jumps on the airship and confronts 
Giacomo, the man who killed Kalas's brother and grandfather. Payback time!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Giacomo
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 750          Weak: Water/Light (+30%)          Strong: Fire/Dark (-30%)

 Drop: Sparkle of Light, Chronos Blow Lvl. 1

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

 First things first, this battle music is really weird. It's like reggae, but 
 it gets good later. (Yeah, I honestly needed to tell you that.)

 Just by looking at his health, you might think that Giacomo would be one 
 tough customer. Well, he kind of is. If you have a lot of Water and Light
 Magnus in your decks (mostly Xelha's deck), then wallop him with them. His
 attacks are very strong, so use any defensive Magnus when you get the chance.
 He uses a four-hit combo ending in a strong finisher, End Slasher. It is a
 Dark-based attack, so you can't really prevent it considering you don't have
 any Light armor. The combo can deal almost 100 HP; use them Bananas.
 
 Giacomo's HP is very high, but you should have no problem depleting it in a
 hurry. Kalas's new finisher won't be much help here, but Blue Storm should
 deal a lot of damage when used in a sufficient combo. Xelha should pummel
 Giacomo with Dance of Light to take a large chunk of HP off of him. When he
 has low HP, Giacomo will start to use End Slasher a lot more, so definitely
 keep your health up.

 Also, take a picture of Giacomo if you get the chance. It will be worth a lot
 of money. It's a somewhat long battle, but you should not be dying over and
 over if you have the right Magnus. After the battle, Giacomo will drop
 Sparkle of Light (new finisher for Xelha) and a Chronos Blow Lvl. 1.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After the battle, Kalas and Xelha are knocked off of the airship. After 
fleeing from Imperial soldiers, they reach Palolo's hideout and stay there.

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

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

The two keep low in Palalo's secret hideout while they continue to bicker. 
After some harsh words, Kalas and Xelha still continue to work together. Exit 
the hideout, then go south and enter the area right below where you came 
from. You will find yourself in the docks. Save at the blue flower (and level 
up). Check out the shop and make sure to rest here. When you're ready, talk 
to the man next to the airship to board it. You will head off to Diadem, Land 
of the Clouds.

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

 +-------------------------------+   Ah, what a peaceful little town. This is
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   your first stop in the new continent, 
 +-------------------------------+   Diadem. As you arrive, walk off of the
 | Silver Buckle............2500 |   dock and into the building. Continue
 | Fire Burst Lvl. 2.........950 |   around the walkway and grab the Pine
 | Aqua Burst Lvl. 2.........950 |   Tree. You can also find a Fire Yell Lvl.
 | Duel Sword................900 |   1 to the right of the exit. Afterwards,
 | Frozen Shield.............700 |   head on outside. Continue across the 
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   bridge to the town.
 | Flame Sword...............250 |
 | Honey.....................200 |   You will arrive in the fishing port. Go
 | Chestnut Truffle..........100 |   over to the dock and talk to the man 
 | Shish Kebab (M)............75 |   with the red hair. He's Lyude, the
 | Mineral Water..............50 |   Imperial Ambassador. After the talk, go
 | Power Helmet...............30 |   around him to the left wall. You'll find
 +-------------------------------+   a Scale Shield. Head on to the right 
                                     side of town and inspect the lantern on
the wall to find a Fire Burst Lvl. 2 Magnus. The central house with the red 
glow is the shop. If you wish to buy any Magnus, then go right ahead. By now, 
your various photos should be developed, such as Giacomo's. Sell them for a 
nice reward.

Go inside the house to the left of the shop. Speak with the fortune teller for 
a somewhat long story. Inspect the dresser to find a Carina Constellation 
Magnus. Exit the house and go inside the house to the right of the shop. Climb 
up the ladder to find a Feathered Hat inside the bed.

The bar is a very lively place and your next destination. You can find it to 
the far right of the shop. Enter the bar and talk to everyone at the tables. 
Afterwards, talk to the bartender. She will mention how the Lesser Celestial 
River is flooded and that it is cutting off the road to the local city.

She suggests that you talk to the local fisherman, Gibari, in order to be 
ferried across the river. Unfortunately, it is prohibited to ferry strangers. 
Gibari enters the bar and despite the law, he helps Kalas and Xelha. 

Gibari will join your party. Hurray! Gibari is pretty much a powerhouse, and 
he is a Water-based fighter. Give him any strong Water Magnus as well as 
other helpful Magnus, such as healing ones. Go back outside and head over to 
Gibari's boat. Time to head off to the Lesser Celestial River and see what 
the problem is. 


==============================================================================
 LESSER CELESTIAL RIVER                                                 [0510]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Pul-Puk, Cancerite
   Magnus: Chaos Edge, Heron Statue, Mana Stone, Stream Blade, Fire Burst Lvl.
           2, Camera 1, Century Veil, Hemp Creel, Cloak of Dark Night,
           Thunderfish Bone

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

You really only fight two enemies here, and as you could've guessed, they are 
Water-based. Even though Gibari is all about Water, he is a great asset to 
your team here. The enemies drop healing Magnus, such as Honey and Grapes. 
Take them whenever you have the chance and add them into your deck. 

When you start off, open the chest next to the entrance for Chaos Edge. You 
can't get the chest to the far left JUST yet, so hold on a bit; we'll come 
for it a bit later. Hop across the series of large rocks to the other side of 
the river. Collect the Mana Stone and Stream Blade.

The Mana Stone enables Kalas's class to reach level 3. If you must, you can 
return to Diadem and class up. You don't have to, but if you want to be on the 
safe side, then go right ahead. Jump over the stone back on the other side, 
then continue on to the next area.

Open the chest to the left to find a Camera. Put this in someone's deck 
immediately. Keep it in a deck pretty much for the rest of the game, just so 
you have a better chance of taking a rare boss's picture. Hop across the 
rocks to the north and enter the small alcove to find a Fire Burst Lvl. 2 
Magnus.

Return to where you found the Camera and jump across the rocks next to where 
you found it. There are three waterfalls over here. If you walk into one, you 
will be swept back to where you found the Camera. Wait until the water stops, 
then hurry across. Continue doing so until you're past all three, then get the 
Century Veil from the chest and save.

Hop across the rocks up ahead and head to the next area, where you'll find 
the reason for the flood. A very big reason...


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Thunderfish
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 750          Weak: Fire/Dark (+50%)          Strong: Water/Light (-50%)

 Drop: Pisces, Energy Wave, Silver Anklet

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

 I'm sure you could have figured out long before the battle that any boss here
 would be Water-based. Hopefully you traded in Water Magnus for Fire and some
 Dark ones. Even though you now have three party members, Gibari won't be much
 of help here, unless he uses his Wind Magnus. Thunderfish has a four-hit 
 combo that ends with Thundercloud. You should be pretty strong by now, so the
 attack actually shouldn't be that bad. The Thunderfish can also use Venemous
 Droplets. It won't deal any damage, but it poisons one character.

 Luckily for us, the Thunderfish really isn't hard at all. Despite its large
 amount of HP, you should chop it away with strong Fire and Dark combos.
 Shadow Wings works wonders in this battle. By now you should have a lot of
 Flame Swords and Flame Shields, so Kalas should be putting on the pain to it.
 Xelha should also be dealing a lot of damage with Fire Burst Lvl. 2's.

 Like I said earlier, Gibari should not have much to do, so let him heal and
 take pictures. After killing the Thunderfish, you will be rewarded with
 Pisces, Energy Wave (yet another finisher for Kalas), and a Silver Anklet.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After the defeat of the Thunderfish, the water in the river will return to 
normal. After the conversation, continue north and go across the shallow 
water to the left. Head to the left to find a Hemp Creel for Gibari, then 
continue on to the next area. You'll find two boys drowning. Rescue both of 
them (one is past the clouds) and they will thank you and return home.

Return to the entrance of this area and jump across the stone. Walk to the
next area to find yourself at a dead end. Grab the Cloak of Dark Night here,
then backtrack to where you fought the Thunderfish.

From here, keep on backtracking to the area with the waterfalls. They're gone 
now, but continue to backtrack across the stones. Once on the other side, 
walk over to the Thunderfish skull and press A to send it down the river. 

Return to the first area of the Lesser Celestial River. You will find the 
skull block up the water near the chest to the left. You know, the chest that 
I told you about? The one that I said we'd be back later for? Well, now that 
the skull cleared the path up, hop across the stones to the chest. Open it 
for a Heron Statue. This item allows Xelha to reach class level 3. Nice.

With that done, collect the essence of the Thunderfish Bone and exit the river 
back to Nashira.

 NASHIRA                                                                [0511]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

It seems that the Imperial soldiers have infiltrated the town. They aren't 
letting anyone leave the town, so you're kinda stuck here for a little bit. 
Enter the bar again to learn that the bartender, Anna, knows of a secret 
passage out of this town. Too bad though; she isn't here. exit the bar and go 
north to the building again near where you arrived in the town. You will find 
Anna here. After the scene, she will return to the bar and open the passage.

Before going to the passage, prepare in any way. Visit the church and 
level/class up and return any Constellation Magnus. Stop by the shop and sell 
any photos you have (like the Thunderfish, for example) Buy any Magnus if you 
want to as well. When you're ready, head through the secret passage.


==============================================================================
 CLOUD PASSAGE                                                          [0512]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Albireo, Striper
   Magnus: Cygnus, Aqua Burst Lvl. 2, Cloud

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

Make sure to fight the Albireos that fly around the Cloud Passage. They drop 
the Triangulum Constellation Magnus, and it is a must.

Upon entering the Cloud Passage, defeat the enemies and continue around the 
windy path to the next area. You will find yourself up on the clouds right 
above the Lesser Celestial River, where you saved the drowning kids. Stick to 
the right path and head to the next area. Just like the previous area, defeat 
the enemies and take the right fork to the last area.

Here, you will find a large piece of machinery. This device creates clouds, so 
take some cloud essence. Continue along past the machine and use the cloud 
essence on the dead end to create a pathway. Collect the Cygnus Constellation 
Magnus from the chest as well as the Aqua Burst Lvl. 2

Make sure to save at the red flower and return to the cloud machine. Get 
another cloud essence and return to the previous area. This time, go down the 
left pathway. Use the cloud essence to repair the road, then head on to the 
other side of the final area. Once you approach the bridge and the exit to 
the Cloud Passage, you will be ambushed by a giant machine.

 BOSS: Iron Beetle I
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 1500         Weak: Water/Light (+30%)          Strong: Fire/Dark (-30%)

 Drop: Soul Flash, Shark Tooth

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

 The fight against the Iron Beetle I is the toughest one to date. Be prepared
 when you enter this fight, or you're screwed. This massive machine packs a
 MEAN punch. It not only have a five-hit combo, but its ending attack,
 Voldocannon, ends up dealing around 200 damage to your whole party! Defend
 like hell with Water and Light Magnus in order to deplete some of the damage
 dealt. The Iron Beetle I is slow, but it'll try to prevent that weakness by
 using Nitro Boost. This move raises its attack. Not good.

 Gibari is your main man in this battle, considering he has a ton of Water
 Magnus in his deck. Use all of his finishers in combos to deal a ton of
 damage to the Iron Beetle I. Have party members heal through the battle to
 try and prevent the opponent from finishing off anyone with Voldocannon.

 Despite its strong attacks, the Iron Beetle I still isn't good enough, and
 you can overcome it with a bit of attack power. After the battle, you will
 get Soul Flash (third finisher for Xelha) and Shark Tooth, which raises
 Gibari's class to a higher level.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After the battle, the Iron Beetle I will explode. Pass the rubble and exit 
the Cloud Passage towards Sheliak.


==============================================================================
 SHELIAK                                                                [0513]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: Light Flare Lvl. 2, Clock Shield, Red and Blue Pencil, Fading
           Notebook, Ray of Truth, Calm Helmet, Voice 2, Nameless Flower,
           Stoked Flame

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

 +-------------------------------+   As you enter the town, approach the first
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   house. The group will overhear a 
 +-------------------------------+   conversation between Lyude, the Imperial
 | Shadow Cornet............1600 |   Ambassador, and an Imperial Commander. 
 | Ray of Truth.............1200 |   The gang finds out that Emperor
 | Light Flare Lvl. 2.......1050 |   Geldoblame is after the sealed power of
 | Dark Flare Lvl. 2........1050 |   Malpercio. After a bit of talking, 
 | Clock Shield.............1000 |   Lyude ends up disagreeing with the plans
 | Century Veil..............550 |   of the Imperial Army and Geldoblame. Once
 | Stream Blade..............520 |   the conversation is over, a guard will 
 | Shadow Suit...............300 |   ask for Gibari's help in the castle. 
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   
 | Mosquito..................250 |   Enter the house where Lyude was and check
 | Milk......................200 |   the cabinet for a Savings Book. Exit and
 | Rooster...................150 |   stock up on any items in the shop. Go
 | Chestnut Truffle..........100 |   right to the next area. Enter the first
 | Shish Kebab (M)............75 |   building and check the table for a Light
 +-------------------------------+   Flare Lvl. 2. Grab the Clock Shield from
                                     the furniture up on the back wall. Leave 
and continue to the next house. Inspect the bookcase for a Red and Blue 
Pencil. That's not all you can do here; push the bookcase aside to reveal a 
secret passage. Go through to the other side. Open all of the chests for a 
Calm Helmet, Ray of Truth, and Fading Notebook. One last Magnus is found in 
the next house; check the dresser for Voice 2. 

You can find a blue save flower on one of the docks. Save and enter the 
church. If you can, level up any characters and make sure to raise Gibari's 
class to level 3. Once ready, head through the tunnel to the castle gate. It 
is blocked off by Imperial soldiers, and they won't let you in. Bummer. But 
you know what they say; when in doubt, steal something! Head back to the blue 
flower and jump on the Imperial ship. You will automatically ride it to the 
castle. 


==============================================================================
 CASTLE ELNATH                                                          [0514]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Imperial Elite, Imperial Blackhelm
   Magnus: Infinity Mask, Dark Sword, Dark Flare Lvl. 1, Light Flare Lvl. 1,
           Magical Anklet, Dark Yell Lvl. 1, Light Yell Lvl. 1, Flash Armor,
           Shadow Suit, Fading Notebook, Wheat Crackers, Diadem Royal Crest

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

 +-------------------------------+   You will arrive on the castle rooftop. 
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   Exit the ship and go to the left. Save at
 +-------------------------------+   the blue flower and open the chest for an
 | Cypress Creel.............350 |   Infinity Mask. Go down the stairs and go
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   on inside the castle. Talk to the lead
 | Chestnut Truffle..........100 |   knight to learn that the castle is being
 | Shish Kebab (M)............75 |   infiltrated by Imperial soldiers. He'll
 +-------------------------------+   give you a Blank Magnus and the Diadem
                                     Royal Crest.

You will also be allowed to dispatch Diadem knights around the castle to help
out other knights in battle. You get four classes: Squires, Apprentice
Knights, Knights, and Senior Knights (ranking from worst to best). Continue to
the left after the conversation to find a Dark Sword in the chest, then go
down the stairs. You will find your first battle down here. Dispatch a Knight
to win the fight against the Imperials. The knights will reward you with a
Butterfly Magnus.

Go to the right of the battle and open the chest for a Dark Flare Lvl. 1, then
get the Light Flare Lvl. 1 from behind where the battle was. Proceed down the
stairs. Go left across the balcony and head down the stairs.

Enter the room to the left to find the infirmary. You can revive tired knights 
by showing them the Diadem Royal Crest. Revive the Knight and exit. Go back up 
the stairs and enter the room to the left. In this next battle, deploy a 
Knight to win. The knights will give you a Chronos Aura 1. 

Exit the room and continue down the stairs. There is a battle going on to the 
right. Dispatch an Apprentice Knight and a Squire to win the fight. You will 
get a Fire Aura 1 afterwards. Grab the Dark Yell Lvl. 1 from the chest. Head 
downstairs to the next fight. Dispatch a Senior Knight at this next battle. 

For winning, the knights reward you with a Light Aura 1. Return to the 
infirmary and revive a Senior Knight, Knight, Apprentice Knight, and a Squire.

Return to where the last battle was fought (in front of the double doors) and 
go down the stairs. Assist the knights to the right. Deploy Senior Knight and 
a Squire to win. You'll be rewarded with a Dark Aura 1. You can get a Flash 
Armor and Shadow Suit; both are at the base of the stairs.

Save at the red flower to the left, then go back up the stairs near the double 
doors. Head up the right set of stairs to the next area. At the fight, deploy 
an Apprentice Knight and a Knight. You will get an Aqua Aura 1. Get the Light 
Yell Lvl. 1 from behind the stairs. 

Take one last trip back to the infirmary. Revive the last set of Diadem 
knights and return to the last battlefield. You can't go up the stairs; they 
are blocked for the moment. Enter the room to the right of the battlefield to 
find one last fight. Dispatch the rest of your knights and you will get a 
Wind Aura 1 after winning.

The gang will climb up the window to the upper floor of the castle. Once in 
the upper floor, collect the Wheat Crackers from the pots and exit the room. 
Equip Kalas and Gibari with any new Magnus. Once you're ready, leave the room 
to start a long scene.

The Imperial soldiers and Lyude have confronted King Ladekahn. They quarrel 
for some time, then the Imperial commander demands that the king speaks with 
them. When the king lowers his defenses, he is shot by a woman. It turns out 
that the woman is Ayme, one of Giacomo's goons. Lyude is outraged by her 
actions, and tells her to stop. Kalas and Gibari jump down to confront Ayme, 
while Xelha helps King Ladekahn. Lyude sides with the good guys and a boss 
battle starts up!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Iron Beetle V
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 1700              Weak: Water (+40%) Light (+30%)
                     Strong: Fire (-40%) Dark (-30%)

 Drop: Crescent Buckle, Shadow Cornet

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

 I'd like to make a note: the battle music that plays during this boss is IMO
 the best music in the game. <3 Rumbling of the Earth. 

 Oh snap, what a turn of events. Kalas and Gibari are joined by the Imperial
 Ambassador Lyude for this battle. The Iron Beetle V is one tough (and big)
 cookie, and a boss isn't the perfect time to test out a new party member.
 Lyude is a Dark and Light based fighter, so he is really good during this
 fight. Use him to dish out the Light Magnus. This monstrous thing has a four-
 hit combo that ends with Plasma Cannon. It isn't that powerful of an attack
 though, which is a relief.

 Kalas most likely doesn't have that many Light or Water Magnus, so he should
 stick with Wind Magnus or no element at all. Gibari is a Water master, so
 have him attack with anything he has. Lyude, like I said earlier, has a mix
 of Light and Dark. Stray from the Dark Magnus and use his neutral and Light
 Magnus. He has two Light finishers to use against this boss too, so things
 should go pretty smoothly at first.

 After damaging the Iron Beetle V significantly, it will use a move called
 Self Repair. Unfortunately for you, this attack heals all 1700 of its HP.
 That pretty much means that the battle starts over. It can only use Self
 Repair once every deck shuffle, so make sure to act quickly before it can use
 it again.

 After healing itself, the Iron Beetle V will start to use a five-hit combo,
 which ends with Diving Drill. It is stronger than its previous attack, but
 Lyude has a good supply of healing Magnus. Continue to pound the Iron Beetle
 V with more combos and it should go down quite fast. Once you beat the Iron
 Beetle V, you'll receive a Crescent Buckle and a Shadow Cornet.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Once you defeat the Iron Beetle V, it will plummet off of the bridge just as 
Ayme escapes from inside. It's a shame that the commander didn't have enough 
time to get out. Psyche! 

Anyways, the gang will talk to Lyude about everything that's been going on. 
King Ladekahn tells the group of a passage behind his throne that leads to 
the Shrine of the Winds. Lyude agrees to join the party. Yay! After talking 
to the king, speak to the knights to view their shop.

Buy the Cypress Creel and any other healing Magnus, then visit the church at 
the blue save flower across from them. Cash in any Constellation Magnus and 
level/class up, then save your game. Proceed to the right of the knights to 
head off to the Shrine of the Winds.


==============================================================================
 SHRINE OF THE WINDS                                                    [0515]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

Before entering the shrine, make your party consist of Kalas, Xelha, and 
Lyude. Once you enter, Xelha's pendant will start to glow. A giant creature 
will lower from the air and challenge the group to a battle. If they win, 
then they can have the shining Magnus. Sounds like a good deal to me.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Lord of the Winds
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 1900          Weak: Chronos (+80%)        Strong: Wind (-80%)

 Drop: Coral Plant, Magic Pen

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

 Woo, that's quite a bit of HP there! If your party is around level 13 before
 entering the battle, then you should be good. Gibari is a big no-no for this
 fight, considering how he has a bunch of Wind Magnus. The Lord of the Winds
 is sadly, really easy. He can use a five hit combo and Miraculous Gale, which
 isn't good. The attack can sometimes put you to sleep.

 Slashing Winds is nowhere near as strong, but he uses this attack a lot more.
 His attacks can also poison you, but it should not be a problem. By now, you
 probably have enough Mineral Water Magnus to keep you from being poisoned
 constantly.

 Xelha should be pummeling this guy with all of her Chronos Blow Magnus. Lyude
 is a good choice, since Lord of the Winds doesn't have any weakness towards
 Light or Dark. Remember to not use Kalas's Wind finishers a lot. He doesn't
 have really any Chronos Magnus, so stick to anything else except Wind.
 Remember to heal if needed, and Xelha will most likely have this battle won
 in no time. Once you defeat Lord of the Winds, you will obtain Coral Plant
 (raises Kalas's class to level 4) and a Magic Pen Magnus.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Once you kill of the Lord of the Winds, the shining Magnus will appear. Lyude 
will grab it, and out of nowhere, Ayme appears. Not only that, but Lyude 
gives the Magnus to her! What the hell? Lyude passes out, and the gang is 
totally thinking that he's a traitor. Is he? 


==============================================================================
 CASTLE ELNATH                                                          [0516]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: Tempest Shield, Glass Earrings, Hydra

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

The party returns to the castle after the big event. Talk to Lyude in his 
room, and he will feel all guilty. We learn that Lyude was in a trance back 
in the Shrine of the Winds; possibly being controlled by someone. King 
Ladekahn defines the shining Magnus as End Magnus. Geldoblame has two so far, 
and the party much protect the other three. The End Magnus are on each of the 
last three continents. Kalas also says that Ayme was one of the people that 
killed Georg and Fee. 

When you try to leave your room, the knight insists that you get a good 
night's rest. After sleeping, return to Lyude's room. Lyude will also join 
your party for good. King Ladekahn asks Kalas and the gang to deliver a 
letter to Queen Corellia in Anuenue. He tells you that his ship is ready to 
disembark, but don't leave just yet.

Once you gain control, return to the Head Knight right near the exit to the 
top of the castle. He will thank you for a job well done, and give you a 
Tempest Shield. If you happened to save all of the knights back in your first 
visit to the castle, then you will get Glass Earrings. Equip these to Lyude 
immediately. Return to the hallway outside of the infirmary and talk to the 
supervisor. He will give you the Hydra Constellation Magnus. 

Head outside to the docks (where you first landed on the castle) and save at
the blue flower. Level/class up and give away your Constellation Magnus. Make 
sure to give your party members any new Magnus, then dock the ship when you're
ready to leave. 


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

                               --<  ANUENUE  >--

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

After getting a small geography lesson on the Taintclouds, the party will 
arrive in the tropical continent of Anuenue. 


==============================================================================
 ANUENUE PORT                                                           [0517]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: Snake Tuba, Explosive Paddle, Bamboo Grass Creel, Auriga

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

There is very little to do in Anuenue Port. Once you land, head to the 
ladder. The ladder going down leads to a platform containing Explosive 
Paddle. This is Gibari's third finisher, so pick it up immediately. The 
ladder going up leads to a house. Head on inside and inspect the pots to the 
right. You will find a Bamboo Grass Creel. Give it to Gibari and check the 
shelf in the back. You'll find an Auriga Constellation Magnus. 

Exit the house and walk to the left. You will end up climbing up the tall
tree. Jump to the branch, then walk to the very tip. Inspect the area for a
Snake Tuba. Afterwards, climb down and go right to exit the port. Continue
shortly to Komo Mai.


==============================================================================
 KOMO MAI                                                               [0518]

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

 +-------------------------------+   Well, the change of scenery is nice, 
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   isn't it? As you enter the town, you'll
 +-------------------------------+   notice that there's a lot of commotion.
 | Marvelous Sword..........4000 |   There is a festival going on to celebrate
 | Dark Sword...............2600 |   the blooming of the Celestial Tree. It 
 | Black Scepter............2300 |   only blooms every 30 years, so everyone
 | Shadow Cornet............1600 |   is all upbeat and happy. Go south and
 | Shako....................1250 |   inspect the cart of bananas to find a
 | Light Flare Lvl. 2.......1050 |   Banana Magnus. Proceed over to the blue
 | Dark Flare Lvl. 2........1050 |   save flower and save your game. The shop
 | Peach.....................600 |   is up ahead, so take a visit and buy any
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   Magnus that catches your eye. After, 
 | Fruity Gelatin............200 |   go up the long ramp in the center of 
 | Chestnut Truffle..........100 |   town. When you go up, you will see a 
 | Shish Kebab (M)............75 |   strange woman not far behind.
 +-------------------------------+   
                                     Now you're in front of Queen Corellia's 
palace. Before going inside, walk up the stairs to the left and enter the 
door. You'll be inside the School of Magic. Enter the first classroom and 
inspect the cabinet to the right for a Chronos Blow Lvl. 2. Talk to the 
student in the top left seat. Talk to him four times, then talk to the kid 
behind him to obtain a Magical Piggy Bank. It's useful later in the game, so 
keep it out of your deck.

Exit the classroom and go inside the room to the left. You will find a 
Sweetheart Picture on the desk. Exit the School of Magic back into Komo Mai. 
This time, go up the stairs to the right and enter the school. Enter the 
classroom right near the entrance. Check the cabinet to the left to find a 
Black Scepter. Also check the bookcase on the right for a Secret Recipe 3.

Exit the classroom and head down the hall. Enter the room and go to the back, 
where you'll find a strange vat of liquid. Press A next to it to drink some. 
After drinking it, talk to the woman next to you and she will give you a 
Silkworm.

Alright, now you can exit the School of Magic and head into Corellia's 
palace. From the entrance, ascend the long set of stairs to the throne room. 
The party will greet Queen Corellia and give her the letter from King 
Ladekahn. After, she will introduce them to Geldoblame! What's he doing here? 
Despite what Kalas and the party says, Geldoblame says that he has nothing to 
do with the End Magnus. What a blatant liar.

Afterwards, leave and head back down the stairs. From the entrance, go to the 
left and enter the room. Inspect the plants near the door for some Deluxe 
Bananas. Exit and this time, head inside the room to the right. Inspect the 
plants for a Flower Bud and the table next to it for Strawberries.

Leave the room and enter the room to the north. Check the bed for a Mattress 
and the cabinet to the left for a Hair Dryer. Inspect the cabinet next to 
Corellia's bed and capture the essence of a Celestial Flower Seed. Exit the 
room and ascend the long set of stairs to the throne room.

When the gang leaves the palace, a stranger will inform them of the Ancient 
Library of Magic, an old library that happens to be the home of a witch. Of 
course, the party listens to a complete stranger and recommends going there. 
Well, let's go!


==============================================================================
 ANCIENT LIBRARY OF MAGIC                                               [0519]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Skeleton Warrior, Cursed Spell Book, Cursed Grimoire
   Magnus: Zeit Robe, Sforzando, Will O' Wisp Hat, Wave Blade, Kite Shield,
           Deluxe Shortcake, Falcon Statue, Scarlet Shell, Deluxe Cookies,
           Magnum Cornet, Silver Sword, Ruby Earrings, Deluxe Bonbon, Fruity
           Gelatin, Water Mirror Anklet, Taurus

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

OH YEAH, this place sucks! This place is a dump as if you couldn't already 
tell, and all of the enemies here are Dark-based. So you know what that 
means, right? Pack your decks with Light Magnus and set off. Open the chest 
near the counter for a Zeit Robe, then check the wall behind the counter to 
find a Geography Section Key.

All of the doors here are blocked off by keys, but at least we have one now! 
The Geography section is the door closest to the entrance, so take out the 
enemies and use the key on the force field.

Once inside, push the red bookcase to the left. Walk around it and hug the 
wall as you go around it. Push the next red bookcase down, but only as much 
as you need to get by to the left. Once on the left side of the room, walk up 
to find a chest containing a Will O' Wisp Hat. Go directly south in the 
corner to find a Philosophy Section Key.

The southern section right below the bookcase holds a chest with Sforzando. 
Once you have raided the chest, push the bookcase back up and go to the right. 
Inspect the bookcase to the right to find a Geography Book. Whoo. Now get out 
of the room and back to the entrance.

From the entrance to the library, go right and up the stairs. Take out the 
enemies and open the chest all the way to the right for a Wave Blade. Go in 
the first doorway on the right and inspect the bookcase when you enter. Kalas 
will knock the bookcase down. Argh. Walk around the tables and open the chest 
for a Kite Shield. Push the red bookcase to the right, then exit. Walk around 
again and collect the History Section Key. 

Alright, now go back downstairs and head to the last locked room. Enter using
the new key. Check the bookcase right above you when entering for a Deluxe 
Bonbon, then simply walk to the other side of the room. Inspect the bookcase
in the southwest corner for a History Book. Open the two chests north of the 
bookcase for a Taurus Constellation Magnus and a Fruity Gelatin. Exit the room
and head back upstairs.

Once in the hallway, go in the first room on the left. Once in, ignore the 
first locked door to your left. As you walk past the first table, inspect the 
bookcase for a Deluxe Shortcake. Continue to the northern part of the room 
and open the chest for a Falcon Statue. This is required to raise Xelha's 
class to level 4, so don't miss it! 

When you try to enter the door to the north, the party will read a note on 
the door. It seems that the door will only open if various books are placed 
on the bookcases in this room. Well, we have a Geography Book, so lets start 
off with that. Inspect the bookcases around the room and they will explain 
which book goes where. Find the designated spot for the Geography Book and 
put it there. 

Save at the red flower and go towards the left side of the room now. Push the 
bookcase out of the way and use the Philosophy Section Key on the door to 
enter the room. Climb up on the ladder to end up on top of the bookcases, 
then jump across to the other side of the room. Once on the other side, go up 
and open the chest for Deluxe Cookies. Now go down and head to the southern 
corner to reach the Literature Section Key.

Push the red bookcase down, then go up the nearby ladder and jump across it to 
reach the section in the bottom corner. Open the chest for a Magnum Cornet and 
check the shelf for a Philosophy Book. Backtrack through the room and exit. 

Save once again and place the Philosophy Book in its designated spot. The 
Literature section is in the south section of this large hub room, so go 
there next. Open the door using the key and head on inside. First off, go 
straight ahead and check the bookcase for a Silver Sword.

Go up and around the bookcase to the left side of the room. Push the red 
bookcase down (not all the way down) and hug the left wall. Open the chest on 
the bottom of the room for Ruby Earrings. Climb up the first ladder and jump 
across to the second ladder.

Position the red bookcase so its right next to the bookcse in the corner (the 
one with the book on top). Walk across after climbing up the second ladder and 
collect the Literature Book. Now we have all four books!

Place the remaining books in their designated spots in the hub room and save 
at the red flower. Go through the northern door to enter the last room. The 
party is stopped abruptly by a weird clown-looking dude. Turns out that he's 
Folon, another one of Giacomo's buddies. He says that he made up the whole 
witch story, and there's no one here but himself! Time to wipe the nasty 
smirk off this punk's face, eh?


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Folon
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 2300              Weak: Water (+30%) Light (+50%)
                     Strong: Fire (-30%) Dark (-50%)

 Drop: Heartlight Candle, Devil Eupho

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

 Folon is a speedy little bugger, so keep your guard up. He has high agility
 and will go most likely before any of your party members. Be sure to keep
 Water and Light Magnus in your deck before fighting this goon. Lyude, Gibari,
 and Kalas should be your main team here. You should have gotten a bunch of
 Light Magnus in the libary, like Rays of Truths and such, so hopefully you
 put them in your deck.

 Folon has a nasty five-hit combo; sometimes he uses a move at the end called
 Chaotic Flames. It will deal a lot of damage if not protected, and it can set
 someone on fire. A party member on fire will lose HP over the turns, so use
 Fruity Gelatins if any are in your decks.

 Over the course of mutilating Folon with your arsenal of Light and Water
 Magnus, the fight will start to become a bit more difficult. He will begin to
 use a very annoying attack called Lethal Injection. The attack greatly boosts
 his attack and agility. Use any and all defense Magnus after Folon uses
 Lethal Injection.

 It'll wear off after a turn or two, so keep attacking in hope of defeating
 him before he can use it again. Folon's attacks cause almost three times more
 than normal when he uses Lethal Injection, so heal only when absolutely
 necessary and try to quickly finish him off. Once Folon finally bites the
 dust, you will get a Heartlight Candle (raises Lyude's class to level 4) and
 a Devil Eupho Magnus. Gnarly.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After the fight, Folon will attempt to finish you off, but the party is 
somehow transported to safety. It turns out that the bounty hunter we 
encountered in Komo Mai saved the gang. She walks off and continues to be a 
mysterious bitch. Yay. Anyways, there was one last treasure chest back where 
you fought Folon. Go all the way back there (I know, I didn't want to either) 
to find a Water Mirror Anklet. Equip it to Xelha and get the hell out of here.

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

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: Landmark Stone

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

Before actually going back to Komo Mai, stop at Holoholo Jungle and go inside.
Talk to the man near the entrance to find out that you need a Landmark Stone 
to get through the dense foliage of the jungle. Return to Komo Mai and go to 
the School of Magic (the right wing).

Proceed into the back room and talk to the girl on the right. You learn that 
she's the principal of the school, and she will give you a Landmark Stone. 
Before disembarking, visit the church and level/class up. Once ready, set off 
to Holoholo Jungle. 


==============================================================================
 HOLOHOLO JUNGLE                                                        [0521]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Acheron, Mirabilis, Spell Shellfish, Undead Swordsman
   Magnus: Silver Earrings, Ice Crystal Buckle, Brave Knight Helm, Heat
           Paddle, Fire Burst Lvl. 3, Wind Yell Lvl. 1, Smash Tackle, Equuleus

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

As a FAQer, I must let you know that Holoholo Jungle (and a later area) are 
total bitches to write a walkthrough for. I will try my best though, so bear 
with me. Luckily, you will only be here for a very short time. The massive 
amounts of trees block any sign of a pathway, so you really have to just walk 
around until you find a trail to walk down.

In the first area, take out all the enemies present to make exploring easier. 
Follow the only path, then look for a fork jutting to the southeast. Go down 
and press A at the dead end to open a chest containing an Ice Crystal Buckle.

Procee northwest to the next area. Once here, climb down the ladder right
where you are and follow the path to a chest. Open it for Silver Earrings.
Might as well give 'em to Lyude. Climb back up the ladder and follow the path.

Head towards the plethora of chests, and you should find another pathway. Go 
around the chests until you can reach them. Open all six chests to get a 
Brave Knight Helm, Heat Paddle, Smash Tackle, Fire Burst Lvl. 3, Wind Yell 
Lvl. 1, and Equuleus Constellation Magnus. Whoah! Once you got all of the 
rewards, return to the entrance to this area and go east out of this place. 
From the world map, continue to Opu. 


==============================================================================
 OPU                                                                    [0522]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: Ice Knuckles, Uncooked Rice, Curry, Flash Explosion, Lupus,
           Perseus, Boiled Egg, Stoked Flame, Weak Flame

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

 +-------------------------------+   As you enter the village, the party will
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   encounter a small girl named Mayfee. She
 +-------------------------------+   will explain how the water wheel in the
 | Feathered Barrette.......5000 |   village isn't working. Follow her into 
 | Wave Blade...............3000 |   her home and talk to her grandmother. She
 | Flame Sphere.............2400 |   will give you a lengthy speech about the
 | Light Yell Lvl. 1........1600 |   history of the Celestial Tree and about
 | Dark Yell Lvl. 1.........1600 |   Anuenue. After the talk, go next door and
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   talk to Mayfee. She wants to help her
 | Shish Kebab (L)...........250 |   grandmother, who is sick, but she needs
 | Fruity Gelatin............200 |   Komo Mai cookies to do so. Time to do 
 | Chestnut Truffle..........100 |   some good samaritan work! But first off,
 +-------------------------------+   let's raid the village, shall we?

You can find Curry in the grandmother's house, in the bushes to the left. 
Enter the house next door and inspect the furniture in the southeast corner 
for Uncooked Rice. Go north and check the pots for a Lupus Constellation 
Magnus. Exit and go down the stairs to the southern part of the village. Open 
the chest for a Perseus Constellation Magnus. Save at the blue flower and 
leave the village. 

Return to Komo Mai and talk to the salesperson outside of the palace. He will 
make the party Komo Mai Cookies, but he needs a special ingredient. If you 
took the Celestial Flower Seed Essence earlier, then give it to him. If not, 
then get one from Queen Corellia's room. The salesperson will make some for 
you, so return to Opu.

Give the Komo Mai Cookies to Mayfee, and after a series of events, the water 
wheel will begin to work and a secret alcove will open in the building. Open 
the chest in the alcove for Flash Explosion. Afterwards, go visit the hunter, 
who has returned to her house in the southern part of town. Go past the blue 
save flower and enter her house. After a conversation between the party and 
the hunter, she reveals that her name is Savyna and she joins your party. 

Savyna suggests that the gang heads out to the Celestial Tree and get the End 
Magnus. Sounds like a plan to me. Before heading out, check the cabinet in 
Savyna's house for Ice Knuckles. You might as well give them to her.

Savyna is a very quick fighter who uses gauntlets as her weapons. She is also 
a Water and Fire based fighter. Frankly, I don't like her too much, but you 
can test her out and see for yourself. 


==============================================================================
 CELESTIAL TREE                                                         [0523]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Blood Leaf, Devil Claws
   Magnus: Crater, Wild Cherry Bud, Gold Beetle Carapace

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

You will arrive at the camp zone at the base of the tree. Savyna will barge 
past the hippie guard dudes. Told you she was a bitch. The party will also 
learn that Mayfee is already climbing up the tree to find a remedy for her 
grandmother. Don't climb up the tree just yet; go inside the tent to the 
right and press A to find a Crater Constellation Magnus. Now climb up the 
left side of the base of the tree. 

Fight Blood Leafs here until they drop an Ursa Constellation Magnus.

At the dead end, drop onto the platform and open the chest for a Wild Cherry 
Bud. Now you can raise Savyna's class to level 4. Return to the base of the 
tree and now climb up the right side up to the next area. Continue to climb 
up the tree. As you reach the platform, you will find Mayfee being attacked 
by a monster.

The tree splits up into two climbable paths. Ignore the left one (it's a dead 
end) and climb up the right one to the new area. Save at the red flower and go 
to the right. Climb down to find a small ledge where Mayfee is stranded. 
Defeat the Devil Claws that pursues her, and afterwards Mayfee will tag with 
you. She's not a playable character though, bummer. 

Climb back up and save at the red flower again. Go climb up the path to the 
right of the save flower and trap the essence of a Gold Beetle Carapace. Go 
back down, save, and take the left path. Defeat the monster that ambushes you 
and make your way to the top of the tree.

The path to the heart of the tree is blocked, but Mayfee will clear it up for
you. You will find a giant series of roots with a pulsing heart-looking thing
in the center. It is the guardian of the third End Magnus. It attacks Mayfee,
but the gang will retaliate.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Tree Guardian, Tentacle x2
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Tree Guardian - HP: 2200               Weak: Fire (+50%) Dark (+20%)
                                      Strong: Water (-50%) Light (-20%)

 Tentacle      - HP: 500               Weak: Fire (+80%) Dark (+30%)
                                     Strong: Water (-80%) Light (-30%)

 Drop: Freezing Axe, Dancing Flames

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

 The Tree Guardian is accompanied in the fight by two lame Tentacles. I mean,
 they are nothing more than a nuisance. You can wipe out their measly 500 HP
 in two or three turns, so do so with both Tentacles. The Tree Guardian will
 revive them later in the battle (most likely), but simply destroy them again.

 The Tree Guardian isn't much of a threat either, to be honest. It has a
 simple combo that ends with Banishing Water. It is a weak attack, but it can
 paralyze you, so it is the only real problem in this battle.

 The Tree Guardian has a lot of HP, but I'm sure you realized even before the
 fight that you'd be fighting something weak against Fire. Anyone is good in
 your party (except Gibari, even though he has some Fire Magnus). I'd pick
 Savyna, Xelha, and Kalas. Disregard Savyna's Water Magnus and concentrate on
 attacking the Tree Guardian with her Fire Magnus.

 The battle against the Tree Guardian is a very simple one, but that seems
 reasonable considering the events that occur after the battle. Once you
 defeat the Tree Guardian, you will get a Freezing Axe Magnus (a finisher for
 Savyna) and Dancing Flames (yet another finisher for Xelha).

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Right after the battle and the Tree Guardian's death speech (like the other 
guardians), the Celestial Tree will bloom. The End Magnus will also appear, 
and Savyna grabs it. Suddenly, Lyude points his gun at her and declares that
Savyna is a traitor and an Imperial soldier! Savyna says that it's true, and
challenges the party to a fight. You can choose whether or not you have to 
fight her, but ultimately you fight her either way.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Savyna
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 3300         Weak: None          Strong: None

 Drop: None

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

 Wow, you didn't expect this, did you? You won't have a chance to heal after
 the battle with the Tree Guardian, so immediately do so. Also, if Savyna was
 in your party in the previous battle, she will of course be replaced (I got
 Gibari).

 If you have been using Savyna, you should realize that she's a quick fighter.
 She will most likely get the first attack. Don't worry though, she is really
 weak. Savyna has a six hit combo that ends with Burning Arrow. Like I said,
 it's a weak attack, but it is capable of causing flames.

 Savyna has no elemental strengths or weaknesses, so go ahead and use pretty
 much any element you want (of course, don't use opposing elements in the same
 combo). You will most likely cut her health down quickly because of this.
 Savyna uses an attack called Healing Capsule near the end of the fight.

 It heals her of 330 HP, but that's really nothing that you can't handle in 
 one turn. Also, TAKE A PICTURE OF SAVYNA! It is a one-time shot of her that
 will nab you a lot of cash. You don't get any spoils for defeating Savyna.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After, Savyna explains that she isn't an Imperial soldier, but she didn't 
want to turn down a fight. Wow, I hated her so much more just for this scene. 
Anyways, the party leaves the Celestial Tree on surprisingly good terms and 
heads back to Komo Mai.


==============================================================================
 KOMO MAI                                                               [0524]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

Yep, back in Komo Mai. Head to Corellia's Castle and enter the throne room. 
The party will show Corellia the End Magnus and convince her of Geldoblame's 
true intentions. Corellia takes the End Magnus and after witnessing some 
strange and horrific visions, passes out. 

Everyone waits in a guest room while the queen recovers, and we learn a bit 
more about Savyna. She used to be a mercenary, blah blah blah. You can tell 
that she's still hiding things, but lets move on to a different matter. A 
guard will tell the party to visit the queen, who has woken up.

Head to Queen Corellia's bedroom and speak with her. She will believe Kalas 
and the others about Geldoblame and intends to join with Diadem and fight the 
Empire. Savyna, along with permanently joining the party, will suggest that 
the group heads to Mira for the next End Magnus.

Alrighty, afterwards, exit and make sure to visit the church at the blue 
flower in the town square. Level/class up, and give any Constellation Magnus 
away for prizes. Remember to equip your party members with new Magnus, such 
as the various finishers we have been getting. I recommend that you be level 
20 before moving on to Mira. Once ready, stop at the Mindeer at Anuenue Port 
to set off. 


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

                                --<  MIRA  >--

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

Before actually getting to Mira, the party must pass through a strange 
dimension called the Trail of Souls. 


==============================================================================
 OUTER DIMENSION                                                        [0525]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Ghost Claws, Zelmer
   Magnus: Half Plate, Aqua Burst Lvl. 3, Crystal Edge, Shish Kebab (L), Ice
           Knuckles, Green Oak, Kite Shield, Devil Eupho, Diminuendo, Wheat
           Crackers, Camera 2, Secret Recipe 4

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

First off, check out the ship and speak to Xelha, Lyude, and Savyna inside. 
Afterwards, head out towards the helm and talk to good ol' Gibari. Kalas is 
feeling a little worried about Lyude and Savyna; can they be trusted? Before 
the conversation can continue, the ship starts to rumble. Out of nowhere, the 
Battleship Goldoba comes out and firest upon the gang! 

As the ship flies out of the Trail of Souls, Giacomo tells Ayme and Folon to
cease fire. Back on the Mindeer, everyone except Kalas is knocked unconscious.
Talk to everyone in the room to have them regain consciousness. 

After everyone is awake, go out to the deck where Savyna was before to 
trigger a scene. Kalas and Xelha will have a long talk about Kalas's past 
until a strange being makes its way towards the ship. She introduces herself 
as the Great Mizuti and the two are baffled. I would be too. Anyways, Mizuti 
offers to help the gang get back on the trail to Mira, and Xelha agrees. 

Once the conversation ends, save at the red flower. It's pretty important 
that you save here, because you will soon participate in a minigame where you 
can earn valuable Magnus. If you happen to miss out on them, then turn the 
game off and try again. Save and return to the inside of the ship to start 
the minigame.

It's pretty simple; you will control the Mindeer as you follow Mizuti through
the Trail of Souls. Enemies will come out in waves and attack. Press A to
shoot down the enemies and use the Control Stick to move. You can also strafe
by holding L or R. Every time you defeat a wave of enemies, you will receive a
Magnus. If you miss an enemy, then a random battle will be triggered.

 +-------------------------------------------------------+-------------------+

 * = Not a Magnus; gives the Mindeer extra speed to catch up to Mizuti

It's pretty easy, but I advise you to try as hard as you can to defeat the 
eighth wave. The prize is Diminuendo: a new finisher for Lyude. After that 
neat little display of minigame-ness, Mizuti will stop at the portal to Mira. 
Unfortunately for the group, it is blocked by a giant monster. Simply 
ridiculous.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Gnosis
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 3600              Weak: None
                     Strong: Dark (-100%) Fire/Water (-50%) 
                             Light/Wind/Chrono (-50%)

 Drop: Ancient Branch, Brave Knight Helm, Andromeda

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

 The biggest pain about Gnosis is that he is strong against all Magnus
 elements, especially Dark. Don't bother using any Dark Flares or Magnus of
 the sort, since it deals no damage. All other damage from elements are
 halved. Gnosis has an attack called Dark Force which will paralyze a party
 member when hit with it. He will use this move frequently, so make sure to
 keep track of paralyzed member's HP, so it doesn't dwindle down too fast.
 Other than that attack, Gnosis's other moves are pretty tame.

 Definitely skip over Xelha and Lyude in this battle. I went with Kalas,
 Savyna, and Gibari and did fairly well against Gnosis. Try to stray from
 elemental Magnus, though I'm aware that it's pretty hard to do, especially
 with Savyna and Gibari.

 The plan is to use mostly physical attacks with neutral Magnus so that the
 damage delivered to Gnosis isn't cut down by elemental strengths. The battle
 is pretty tough, especially if your characters get paralyzed left and right.
 After defeating Gnosis, you will receive the Ancient Branch (raises Kalas's
 class to level 5), Brave Knight Helm, and an Andromeda Constellation Magnus.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After eliminating the pest that is Gnosis, the party will finally make its 
way to Mira, City of Illusion. From the world map, walk towards the first 
area: Parnasse, the Confectionary Village. 


==============================================================================
 PARNASSE                                                               [0526]

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

 +-------------------------------+   My god, this whole place...is made out of
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   candy! That is so badass. Like, you can
 +-------------------------------+   eat your house and stuff, man. Anyways,
 | Moonlight Creel.........12000 |   once the party enters the city, you will
 | Half Plate...............8500 |   be graced by the presence of Melodia, the
 | Brave Knight Helm........7300 |   princess of Mira. She breaks up a fight
 | Aqua Burst Lvl. 3........7000 |   between two rival fighters. As she begins
 | Flame Sphere.............2400 |   to walk ahead, she trips and falls to the
 | Plain Pastry.............2200 |   the ground. Kalas, being a gentleman
 | Bacon.....................580 |   (I didn't think I'd be saying those words
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   anytime soon) helps her up. She thanks
 | Shish Kebab (L)...........250 |   him and leaves. We learn that Melodia is
 | Fruity Gelatin............200 |   the granddaughter of Duke Calbren of
 | Chunk of Ice..............100 |   Mira. Anyways, on with the quest. 
 | Chestnut Truffle..........100 |
 | Shish Kebab (M)............75 |   Enter the first building on the right to
 +-------------------------------+   meet up with Kalas's childhood friend, 
                                     Trill. She works for one of the bakers
that was fighting earlier on, Tisocco. She asks you a favor: to retrieve some 
Mira Chocolate for her. We have better things to do, but whatever. Exit the 
bakery and enter the building right above. You're in the rival baker, 
Donella's, workplace. Talk to the baker near the giant vat. In order to get 
some Mira Chocolate, you must fetch him some Mira Cream. Argh. 

Return to Tisocco's bakery and esamine the vase on the right to obtain some 
Mira Cream. Bring it to the baker in the other building and he will give you 
some Mira Chocolate in return. Just examine the vat to obtain it. Bring the 
chocolate to Trill and she will thank the party. 

She goes on about a mystical garden north of town where she saw a strange 
shining Magnus. Maybe it's the End Magnus? Once that's done with, you can 
examine the town. Examine the refrigerator in Trill's bakery to find a Frozen 
Tangerine. Leave and head into the house in the center of town. Check the 
dresser to the right for some Chronos Armor and examine the cookie wall in 
the left corner for some Fresh Beef. 

After collecting the goodies, head into the shop. A lot of the Magnus here 
are really expensive, but I recommend buying the Moonlight Creel. It's new 
equipment for Gibari which should prove to be useful in the oncoming 
dungeons. Stock up on any other Magnus that you need and save at the blue 
save flower. When you're ready, exit Parnasse. Follow the path on the world 
map until you reach your next stop.


==============================================================================
 MYSTICAL GARDEN                                                        [0527]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Gormer, Slime, Devilish Hands, Magic Shellfish
   Magnus: Silver Barrette, Whirlwind Hat, Mirage Weed, Pristine Water, Golden
           Pick Axe

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

This place is really messed up. The hub room which also serves as the 
entrance to the dungeon is really confusing, and you'll be here many times. 
Walk over to the red cube in the water and examine it to jump over to the 
other side. Talk to the woman. Ask her every option about the garden to make 
the Golden Hero appear. Head through the door to enter a weird 8-bit dungeon. 

Defeat the Slimes in the room and follow the passage. Avoid the flames for 
now, as they can hurt you. Also ignore the gold walls blocking the path to a 
locked door. Enter the staircase in the middle of the room, at the top. 
Whoah, you're upside-down! Cross the red cube and speak with the Golden Hero 
leaning against the wall. He will give you the Jet Boots in return. Talk to 
him again to obtain the White Sword.

These are not Magnus, but valuable items to help get you through this garden. 
Go through the door and defeat the third Slime. Return to the Golden Hero and 
talk to him. Tell him the party is having trouble with the fire in the 
dungeon. He will give you a Red Necklace. Once again, this isn't a Magnus, but 
an item that allows you to walk through the fire.

Cross over the red cube and go through the doorway in the center. Once back 
in the dungeon, enter the staircase directly below you to reach a new room. 
There are several blocks and a giant scale in the center of the room. Walk to 
the back of the room and jump over the red cube to reach the scale. Collect 
two Pristine Water Essences from the pool.

Dump the two essences into the blue bowl to lower the blue cube into the 
water. Don't forget to open the two chests in the room; one contains a Silver 
Barette, and the other contains Whirlwind Hit, one of Gibari's finishers! Now 
cross over the blue cube and return to the dungeon. 

Once in the dungeon again, enter the staircase right below you. It should be 
the bottom staircase in the center of the dungeon. You will now return to the 
entrance of the garden. The red cube that was to the right of you is gone, 
but a blue cube now rests in the water to the left. Hop over it to the other 
side and go through the doorway. You're in the dungeon once again; walk over 
to the chest and open it to receive the Golden Pick Axe Essence. Hooray!

Return to the dungeon and go through the staircase in the middle of the room, 
at the top. Now you're upside-down again. Walk over to the chain connected to 
the block and use the Golden Pick Axe to break the chain. Now, return to the 
scales (go through the center door in the dungeon) and get some more Pristine 
Water. Fill the red bowl with two Pristine Water Essences.

Return to the dungeon and go to the bottom. Enter the stairs in the middle of 
the dungeon, at the bottom. You will now be right side up. Walk over to the 
Key and pick it up.

Make your way back to the dungeon for one last time. Remember the gold walls? 
Use the Golden Pick Axe to knock all three down. A boss awaits on the other 
side of the door. Like Gnosis, he is resistant to all elements. Choose the 
same party that you use against Gnosis (Kalas, Savyna, and Gibari).

Use the Key on the locked door and go through to enter the final room of the
Mystical Garden. Once in the room, Xelha will try to call out the guardian,
but it doesn't work. Instead, hundreds of Magnus fly into the center of the
room, creating one giant Magnus! And yep, your next boss is a giant card!

 BOSS: Magnus Giganticus
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 4000              Weak: None              Strong: All (-50%)

 Drop: Emerald Earrings, Gleaming Helm

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

 Despite fighting a giant Magnus (which doesn't seem too threating at all),
 the battle can be pretty challenging. Like Gnosis, Magnus Giganticus is
 resistant to all elements. That means all elemental attacks will be cut in
 half. Lyude or Savyna fits the third spot, but it's your choice since Magnus
 Giganticus doesn't have as high of a resistance to Dark, like what Gnosis
 had. I still went with Savyna though, but it's up to you.

 Well, another similarity to Gnosis, Magnus Giganticus can and will paralyze
 your party members with Chronos Cage. It also uses an attack called Dark
 Surge, which inflicts Dark and Chronos damage, and it hurts. Like the fight
 with Gnosis, stick mostly with neutral Magnus and physical attacks. You can
 still attack with elemental Magnus in the fight, but I can't say that it's
 exactly the most surefire way of defeating the boss quickly.

 Magnus Giganticus will begin to fall apart after inflicting enough damage on
 it, so you can kind of keep track of the battle. For example, you know the
 battle is almost over when there's nothing but a sliver of Magnus in front of
 you. All in all, the battle against Magnus Giganticus is a beefed-up version
 of the Gnosis fight. Once the evil Magnus bites the dust, you will obtain the
 Emerald Earrings (armor for Lyude) and Gleaming Helm.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After the battle, the gang learns that Mira's End Magnus was unsealed here a
long time ago. Because of this, you will get the Shadow Magnus, a mere shell
of what you came here for. Oh, on your way out, pick up some Mirage Weed. It
is found on the walls of the garden, in the hub room. Examine the grass
growing on the walls to pick it up. With Mirage Weed in hand, exit the garden.

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

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

As you return to Parnasse, you will be greeted in a rather unfriendly way. 
The two guards claim that Lady Melodia was kidnapped, and that the group 
isn't trusted. So, they end up being locked in a house. Talk to everyone 
inside, with Gibari being last. He comes up with a clever idea: why not eat 
our way out? Since the whole damn house is made up of candy, lets eat a hole 
into a wall and escape?

Well, it seems like Gibari is the only one that can come through, so he ends 
up having to eat a whole wall. The gang finally escapes out of Parnasse. 
Return to the world map and pass the Mystical Garden, and enter the next town.

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: Monolith Pen, Tri-Crescendo Pen

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

 +-------------------------------+   If you thought Parnasse looked weird,
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   well, check out Reverence. This town 
 +-------------------------------+   looks like something out of Katamari
 | Silk Robe................9800 |   Damacy, with its  big paper cut-outs and
 | Brilliant Horn...........8800 |   flashy colors. Anyways, cross the large
 | Light Flare Lvl. 3.......8000 |   bridge and talk to the weird creature.
 | Pegasus Cloak............6700 |   Damn, there aren't even humans in this
 | Millinery................5100 |   weird town! Anyways, he wants some Mirage
 | Shortcake (S)............2200 |   Weed. If you picked it up in the Mystical
 | Sculpting Knife...........450 |   Garden, then give it to him. After some
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   weird turn of events, the building in
 | Shish Kebab (L)...........250 |   the top-left corner of the town will be
 | Fruity Gelatin............200 |   opened. Lets go there now, shall we?
 | Uncooked Rice.............120 |   
 | Chunk of Ice..............100 |   Enter the building and speak with the old
 | Chestnut Truffle..........100 |   fortune teller inside. She talks about
 | Shish Kebab (M)............75 |   how Kalas doesn't have any Magnus, and 
 +-------------------------------+   the party defends him. Whatever. Once you
                                     are done talking to her, leave the 
house. After, the party will be informed that some strangers with a hooded 
woman have made their way to Nekton, Shrine of the Spirits. Before pursuing 
the group, explore the town a little bit more.

Go inside the house on the right and examine the two dressers. You will find a 
Monolith Pen and a Tri-Crescendo Pen. Hmm, paying homage to the creators? 
Either way, I'm pretty sure the two Magnus are useless. Lastly, visit the 
shop. Pick up a Brillaint Horn for Lyude and a Light Flare Lvl. 3. Stop at the 
blue flower and level/class up. After all of that, leave the city in pursuit 
of the strangers.

 SHRINE OF THE SPIRITS                                                  [0530]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Gray Cancerite, Filler, Ray-Moo
   Magnus: Wind God Blade, Water Blade, Corona Borealis

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

Make sure to fight Fillers and Ray-Moos in this area. Fillers drop the Cepheus
Constellation Magnus, and the Ray-Moos drop the Hercules Constellation Magnus.
In fact, you can get two more Constellation Magnus here, but they are
described in the walkthrough.

You may actually recognize this place. In the beginning of the game, this is 
where Kalas met his guardian spirit. Okay then, follow the main path in this 
dark-lit area until you come to a fork. Follow the upper path until you reach 
a dead end with a chest. Open it for a Wind God Blade. It's a pretty sweet 
Magnus, so give it to Kalas now.

Return to the fork and take the lower path. Follow until you come to a sharp 
turn. Instead of following the trail north, check the corner and you should 
find a chest. It's pretty hard to spot in this dark place, but it's there. 
Open it for the Corona Borealis Constellation Magnus. Proceed north down the 
passage and you will come to a tunnel. Right in front of the tunnel entrance 
is another treasure chest. Open the chest for a Water Blade and go through 
the tunnel to the other side. 

There is a red flower straight ahead. Save at it and prepare for battle. 
Stack your decks with Dark and Wind Magnus for the fight ahead. I suggest to 
stick Xelha, Kalas, and Gibari in your main party; they should do the trick. 
After, walk past the red flower into the next chamber. 

You will encounter none other than Lady Melodia, yay! Except she's being held 
captive by the likes of Giacomo and his two goons. He asks Melodia about the 
End Magnus, yet she knows nothing. Ayme reminds that the princess must stay 
safe, since she's personal friends with Emperor Geldoblame. Hm. Anyways, the 
good guys confront the trio, and before a battle can ensue, a monster comes 
forth from a portal. Gnosis? Nope, another look-alike!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sikri
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 3000              Weak: Dark (+80%) Wind (+50%)
                     Strong: Light (-80%) Chrono (-50%)

 Drop: Golden Buckle, Dark Embrace, Virgo

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

 Well, luckily we have a very easy fight on our hands. Unlike the two previous
 bosses, Sikri is actually weak against two elements. That means that Xelha is
 just dandy for this battle. I went with her, Kalas, and Gibari. Lyude works
 just as well, so it's a tossup between the two. Sikri uses a combo ending
 with Unholy Symbol, which not only deals a somewhat large amount of damage,
 but can also paralyze. Why do these bosses paralyze everyone all of a sudden?

 As for a level, you will be fine if you're around level 21. Kalas should be
 able to tear this monster apart with all of his Wind Magnus in his deck.
 Xelha should be packed with Dark and Wind Magnus, and Gibari can fare for
 himself with his Wind Magnus.

 Near the end of the battle, Sikri will begin to use Life Drain. He will drain
 around 250 HP from a party member and add it to its own health. Yawn. Even
 that isn't a big threat to you now. Despite that (lame) trick up its sleeve,
 Sikri should succumb to your power in a hurry. You will earn a Golden Buckle,
 Dark Embrace (a finisher for Xelha) and the Virgo Constellation Magnus.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The battle ends, but Sikri isn't dead. Instead of slaying the beast, Melodia 
steps in and tells the monster to calm down. It then leaves the group in a 
nice manner. Yay! Some guards come to retrieve Melodia, and they leave. As 
the party is about to leave, Kalas makes a shocking discovery: he can't find 
the Che End Magnus! It's gone! That really sucks for them. The group decides 
to trace their steps back to all of the areas that they were at. 

Back at the Mindeer, everyone tries to figure out what could have happened to 
the End Magnus. Savyna throws in that as opposed to Kalas losing it, maybe 
someone stole it? She makes the accusation that someone in the party stole 
the End Magnus! While the gang tries to figure out who could have stolen it, 
Gibari tells everyone to ignore the matter for now, as they move onto 
Balancoire.

 +-------------------------------+   It seems that this is the only NORMAL
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   place in Mira. At least it looks that
 +-------------------------------+   way. Enter the first house that you come
 | Skipjack................10000 |   to and talk to the people inside. After,
 | Chronos Blow Lvl. 3......9000 |   make sure to inspect the furniture behind
 | Mayfly...................8500 |   the table to find Sugar Cane. Check the
 | Dark Flare Lvl. 3........8000 |   dresser for Millinery. Exit the house and
 | Apple Pie (Slice)........5000 |   save at the blue flower. Level/class up
 | Tekken (Iron Fists)......4800 |   and if you wish, stop at the Shop and buy
 | Mini Cream Puff..........2200 |   some Magnus.
 | Persimmons...............1800 |   
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   Go up the stairs and enter the house on
 | Shish Kebab (L)...........250 |   the left. Examine the plants on the left
 | Fruity Gelatin............200 |   for a Cedar Tree and examine the cabinet
 | Chunk of Ice..............100 |   in the back for a Pot of Air. Yay air! 
 | Chestnut Truffle..........100 |   Speak with the inhabitants inside and
 | Shish Kebab (M)............75 |   leave. Finally, enter the house on the
 +-------------------------------+   right and speak with Trill's father. You
                                     can find Deluxe Red Wine in the barrel 
and Bacon behind the bar. Once you have talked with everyone in the houses, 
exit to see a scene with Lady Melodia.

She makes her way to Duke Calbren's Manor with some guards. When you begin to 
follow her, you'll hear some hoodlums talking about how people with only one 
wing are curses. Despite the harsh talk, Kalas is used to it by now. Go back 
up the stairs and go through the arch between the two houses. Onto Duke 
Calbren's Manor!

The guards won't stop you, so make your way into the mansion. Go up the 
stairs and head through the giant door in the middle to enter the throne 
room. You will find Duke, Melodia, and Mizuti inside. The Great Mizuti claims 
that she is here to protect the End Magnus, and that she knew that the group 
was coming here.

Duke Calbren tells everyone that the End Magnus, Bo, is hidden underneath the 
mansion. Right as the Duke is finished, Giacomo enters the room. Man, those 
guards need to do a better job protecting the manor. He claims that he will 
find the End Magnus first and runs off.

Exit the throne room and go back down the stairs. Make a right and enter the 
room here, which seems to be a museum of sorts. Mizuti will appear in the 
room and after a short conversation, she will join the party. Whoopee! Mizuti 
is very similar to Xelha, but I always like Mizuti more. I mean, she's so 
great! Anyways, you can follow Giacomo to the basement through the trap door, 
but lets put that off for now and explore the mansion. I mean, sure we have 
to stop the evil guys now, but lets explore the mansion anyways.

In the same room, examine the drums to find a Piscis Constellation Magnus. 
Inspect the grandfather clock near the entrance for Jill's Jewelry Box. 
Return to the foyer and go back up the stairs. Enter the room on the right. 
Examine the cabinet nearest to the entrance for a Secret Recipe 5. Mm, love 
those secret recipes. Examine the dresser in the back of the room to find The 
Silent Woman Magnus.

After getting those two, leave the room and enter the one to the left of the 
throne room. We're in the princess's bedroom. Ooh. Examine the counter on the 
right side of the room for a Sleet Shawl and check the bed for a Tearless 
Mermaid. 

Alright, now we can follow Giacomo. Return to the museum and go down the trap 
door into the basement. Open the chest on the right for a Robe of Firelight. 
The doorway on the left leads to one of the most obnoxious and annoying 
dungeons in the game, so I hope you're ready.

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

This place is like, a FAQer's nightmare. The whole screen looks like 
shattered glass, so you can't really move around like you normally would. You 
pretty much have to look on each shard of glass to see where Kalas is and 
control him from there.

It's best to eliminate all of the monsters on screen so you have an easier 
time to walk around. Initially, you start at the end with the star rod and you 
must reach the end with the moon rod. Yeah, it's pretty much impossible to 
give directions, but I have made ASCII maps of the layout of the floors.

Well, you start on the right side of the map. The room is a giant circle with 
a bridge crossing the center. There are two other paths sticking out of the 
sides. One holds a treasure chest with a Heaven's Pillar. Make sure to pick 
it up, since it's Mizuti's level 4 finisher. The other path, straight across 
from the entrance, is the exit. Stand next to the moon rod to teleport to the 
next floor.

The second floor is a hell of a lot easier to navigate, since you have a 
bird's eye view of the floor. You start at point "A". Go north to the fork 
and take the right path. Open the chest for a Corona Australis Magnus. Take 
the left path instead. All you need to do is follow the trail leading to 
point "B", where the exit is. Easy.

The third floor is a lot trickier, but I've provided a somewhat accurate 
layout of the floor. You start off at point "B" and you need to go to 
point "C". The floor is like the first one, with the whole screen imitating 
shattered glass.

Defeat all of the enemies and find Kalas on the screen, then follow him 
through the floor. There are no items on the floor, so make your way to the 
moon rod immediately. It's a pain in the ass, but hopefully I've helped you in 
some way. When you get to point "B", you will teleport into the final (normal) 
room.

Giacomo has beaten the gang here, and he breaks the seal of the End Magnus. 
Like usual, he summons the guardian for us to deal with. Joy.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Phantasm
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 3000              Weak: Dark (+80%) Wind (+50%)
                     Strong: Light (-80%) Chrono (-50%)

 Drop: Pinecone, Vanish Grenade, Capricornus

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

 Phantasm is your usual guardian boss, but he is an easy one at that. He, like
 Sikri, is weak against Dark and Wind; strong against Light and Chrono. The
 boss uses a fairly weak and small combo, ending with Eyes of Terror. It deals
 mostly neutral-based damage, but it deals some Chronos-based damage as well.

 It really isn't anything to worry about, honestly. I went with Kalas, Lyude,
 and Mizuti this time (I wanted to try Mizuti out, and she did just fine). I
 suggest you do the same with her, since she rocks. Just give Mizuti some of
 Xelha's stronger Magnus and she will hold her ground.

 Other than that one attack, Phantasm is a joke. Eyes of Terror can put you to
 sleep, but don't count on it. If anyone happens to die, you can try out
 Mizuti's healing Magnus. Sacred Wine can cure Death, and Holy Grail has a 66%
 chance of curing Death. They are extremely useful later in the game.

 Okay, back to Phantasm. Uh, he is a really big pushover. Kalas will maul him,
 and Lyude can also deal a lot of damage to the monster. Well, Phantasm will
 fall before you know it. After that sad attempt at a battle, you will obtain
 a Vanish Grenade (finisher for Savyna), Pinecone (raises Mizuti's class to
 level 4), and a Capricornus Constellation Magnus. That's a damn good deal.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After the battle, Phantasm will do his usual guardian thing "beware Malpercio 
blah blah" and then dies. The End Magnus begins to unseal, but Kalas stops it 
with the Shadow Magnus. Then, Giacomo steals it right in front of everyone's 
eyes. Way to go team. Ayme steals the pendant on Xelha's neck, and the two 
escape. Mizuti faints, and the team regroups at Duke Calbren's manor. 

While Mizuti is still out, Duke explains that the End Magnus are actually the 
body parts of the evil god Malpercio. Che is Malpercio's chest, Ar is his 
arm, Le is his leg, Bo is his body, and He is his head. To be honest, I 
noticed that a long, long time ago. Well, at least it's original. 

After that, another cutscene awaits. The group all talk by themselves about 
the slew of events that have been going on. Kalas and Xelha talk a bit, and 
Savyna and Gibari still wonder about Che. Lyude wonders how he can face his 
fears back at Alfard ever since he joined the good guys. And well, Mizuti is 
still weird. 

Once you gain control again, Duke tells Kalas to meet up with Melodia in her 
room. Exit the throne room and make one last pit stop. Head over to the blue 
flower in Balancoire. Level/class up and trade in your Constellation Magnus. 
When you're ready, enter the manor and go to the room to the left of the 
throne room. Melodia will take you to the Empire, since she is in good terms 
with the emperor. After that, well, it's go time!

Oh, and it's the end of Disc 1. Hooray!

           Scale Mail, Ara, Sleet Shawl, Apple Pie (Slice), Stoked Flame,
           Girl's Thoughts

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

 +-------------------------------+   Here we are, in the belly of the beast.
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   This is Mintaka, the Imperial Capital of
 +-------------------------------+   the Alfard Empire. This place is big, so
 | Deluxe Red Wine.........17000 |   there are a lot of places to go exploring
 | Blue Sky Mail............9500 |   and I'll cover them all. 
 | Wind Blow Lvl. 3.........9000 |   
 | Magic Beans-Death........8000 |   First off, Kalas, Melodia, and the others
 | Arm Bomber...............6200 |   will be greeted by General Fadroh. He 
 | Tongue Birdie............6000 |   then leaves with Lady Melodia. Now we can
 | Dark Yell Lvl. 1.........1600 |   have some time to explore the city. Save
 | Light Yell Lvl. 1........1600 |   at the blue flower at the end of the port
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   and level/class up; do the normal stuff
 | Shish Kebab (L)...........250 |   at the church. Head over to the building
 | Fruity Gelatin............200 |   next and walk past the door. You can 
 | Bamboo Shoot..............160 |   actually walk onto the long, pointy
 | Uncooked Rice.............120 |   obstructions coming from the wall. Walk 
 | Chunk of Ice..............100 |   to the tip of the nearest one and open
 | Chestnut Truffle..........100 |   the chest to find a Secret Recipe 6. 
 | Shish Kebab (M)............75 |   
 +-------------------------------+   Next, go on inside the building that was
                                     just passed. Examine the potted plants 
to the right to find Pickled Eggplants and the bright thing on the back wall 
for a Viking Helmet. Exit the house and proceed to the left to reach the 
inner portion of the city.

Follow the road until the gang bumps into a small child. It turns out that the
little kid is some really rude asshole who basically sounds like a dictator of
sorts. Lyude explains that children are taught to be like that, but he was
actually homeschooled. Walk to the left to spot a hologram of Geldoblame,
which does nothing except boast to the civilians. 

Enter the building to the left of the hologram and search the furniture, like 
we do in every single house in this game. Open the two chests to the right 
for a Coffin Shield and Scale Mail. Inspect the pot to the left of the table 
for the Ara Constellation Magnus. Go up the stairs to the roof as Lyude is 
confronted by some Imperial soldiers. They basically make fun of him, that is 
all. Once the conversation is over, return to the inside of the building.

Continue past the hologram and where the little kid was. The shop is to the 
right of the intersection. You can check it out if you'd like. After, go 
north at the fork to reach another section of the city. Follow the road to 
the lone house and go on inside. Talk to the man inside to learn a story of a 
great doctor. He was a totally awesome doctor who lived in Mira, but died 
when he accidentally set his lab on fire. Yeah, he's awesome alright...

Anyways, examine the bed for a Sleet Shawl and open the chest for an Apple 
Pie (Slice). Exit the house and return to the main portion of the city. 
Return to the hologram to notice that the crowd of people is gone. Walk down 
the street that was previously blocked to reach another home. 

Lyude will tell the party that this is his abode, and invites everyone in. He 
introduces everyone to his nurse and basically his mother, Almarde. Lyude 
never knew his parents, so he was raised by Almarde his whole life. Not long 
after, two Imperial officers barge into the room. What seem like normal bad 
guys, these two turn out to be Lyude's brother and sister, Skeed and Vallye. 

Unlike normal loving siblings, they demand that Lyude hand over Kalas and the 
others. Kalas thinks Lyude turned on them, but the traitor stands back and 
refuses. 

All of a sudden, Almarde pulls out a gun and threatens to fire at Skeed and 
Vallye. The two officers then shoot Almarde and leave the house. Not only 
does Almarde (who was like a mother to Lyude) die, but now the Empire is 
after the good guys. Lyude is all emotional, but he leads the gang out the 
back door. Also, I'm sure by now that you realized that you can't get the 
chest in the house yet. I know, boo hoo.

You must return to the port and track down the Battleship Goldoba. As you 
make your way through Mintaka, guards will be patrolling the streets. You can 
fight them, and in fact, it's a good idea that you do so. They give a lot of 
EXP, so make sure to battle most of them (if not all of 'em). Once you reach 
your ship, save at the blue flower and head on inside.

It wouldn't be too terrible of an idea to create another save file before 
boarding your ship. The boss battle up next is considered by many as the 
toughest fight in the game, and you're basically screwed if you are 
underleveled. Save here, and if you can't beat the boss, then stay at Mintaka 
and level up. Oh, I'd say I was around level 25 at this point. You may want 
to be at that level or higher. 


==============================================================================
 BATTLESHIP GOLDOBA                                                     [0602]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Imperial Walker
   Magnus: Rainbow Straw Hat, Sleet Shawl, Grace Shield, Robe of Firelight,
           Cetaka's Sword, Rice Paper, Crystal Nails, Assassin's Hood,
           Viking's Helmet

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

You will start out on the ship's deck. Look familiar? This is where you 
fought Giacomo, and your party will have to deal with three Imperial Walkers. 
They are normal enemies (despite the boss music). Once they are done with, 
the party will enter the Goldoba. 

From the start, go up the stairs next to you and save at the red flower. If 
you have a separate save file, make sure not to save over it. You always want 
to have a save file at Mintaka (or earlier). The thing is, you cannot leave 
this place, so if you cannot beat the boss at the end, then you are boned. 
The door at the end of the walkway is locked, so go back down the stairs and 
enter the next area. 

Enter the first room, which is to the left of the central door. Open the 
treasure chest to obtain a Rainbow Straw Hat. Examine the left bunk bed for a 
Sleet Shawl. Pass over the central room (we will go there later) and enter 
the northeast room. Once again, open the chest and inspect the bunk bed. You 
will get a Grace Shield and a Robe of Firelight, respectively.

Follow the walkway and go inside the room to the right. Walk down the stairs 
and around the bend. Open the two chests for a Cetaka's Sword and Rice Paper. 
Leave the room to the central hub.

Follow the path south to enter another small room. In fact, I believe it's 
the engine room; it looks important. Open the chest for Crystal Nails and 
return to the hub. Finally, enter the central room and approach the computer. 
You must input a password to open the door at the entrance, but you can use 
others to get cool things, like Magnus. To get the codes normally, you would 
have to defeat the Imperial Walkers wandering around, but you don't have to! 
Here are the useful codes:

 4653 - Unlocks door
 0819 - Obtain Assassin's Hood
 3291 - Obtain Viking's Helm

Get the two Magnus first, then use the code to unlock the door. Afterwards, 
return to the starting point. Make sure to save at the red flower, as it's 
time to make final preparations. Make sure to equip all party members with 
Light Magnus. This is a must. You would also be good with some Water Magnus. 

Despite having Water Magnus in your deck, I would advise that you do not use 
Gibari. My party for the upcoming fight was Kalas, Mizuti, and Lyude. Xelha 
will do fine, but Kalas and Lyude are a must. Once you feel that you are 
ready, enter the door...

...to meet up with our buddies, Giacomo, Ayme, and Folon! Kalas and Giacomo 
stand off, and the evil man offers Kalas to join him. Kalas refuses and 
demands that he stands and fights. Well, that is what we will get. It's a 
three-on-three battle of the century!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Giacomo, Ayme, Folon
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Giacomo - HP: 3800               Weak: Water (+50%) Light (+30%)
                                Strong: Fire (-50%) Dark (-30%)

 Ayme    - HP: 2400               Weak: Chrono (+50%) Light, Fire (+30%)
                                Strong: Wind (-50%) Dark, Water (-30%)

 Folon   - HP: 2700               Weak: Light (+50%) Water (+30%)
                                Strong: Dark (-50%) Fire (-30%)

 Drop: Hermit's Creel, Rarebird Statue

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

 Holy guacamole, are you ready for one hell of a fight? I really hope you're
 prepared, since you'll most likely be here for a while. Okay, Giacomo has the
 most health of the trio, and he attacks twice. Despite that, it is best to
 leave him for last. Folon is still his same ol' self, but he is the most
 deadly member of the evil gang.

 Still, I find it best to target Ayme first. She has the lowest HP of the
 three, and she is fairly weak. It's best to cut her down quickly to make this
 a two-on-three match. This is how I won the battle, so you might want to pay
 attention here.

 This is your first battle with Ayme, so make sure to take a picture of her.
 That's not the most important of things, but use your Camera Magnus if you
 get it. Ayme has a nine-hit combo ending with Crazy Rabbit. Yes, NINE-HIT
 COMBO. Surprisingly, it won't do that much damage to you. In fact, Ayme is
 really weak (she is the fastest one of the three though).

 Use Chrono Magnus against her (Mizuti has a Chronos-based finisher, Heaven's
 Pillar; use it) and some Light or Fire Magnus. Like I said, Ayme should bite
 the dust rather quickly if you use massive combos on her.

 With Ayme out of the picture, focus on Folon for the time being. He has very
 dangerous attacks, like Energy Injection from the last fight with him. It
 drastically increases his Attack and Agility; that is NEVER good. Folon's
 attacks, when powered up, can set you on fire. Heal any characters that are
 put on fire immediately. Of course, the little creep has a new trick up his
 sleeve: Warg Laser. It deals Dark and Chronos damage, so make sure to block
 it, because it kills.

 Damage Folon with your Light and Water Magnus. Lyude should use all of his 
 finishers on Folon, since his deck will most likely be shuffled when Giacomo
 is the only one left. Have Kalas and Mizuti use Water Magnus to attack. This
 is the point where your characters may be starting to wear down. Make sure to
 keep an eye on all three members' HP: when it goes below 1000, try to use
 healing Magnus. Folon is a very powerful and deadly foe, so take him out
 quickly to narrow it down to only one opponent left: Giacomo.

 With the big man standing alone, you would expect things to go rather
 smoothly. Well, not exactly. Every time I died in the battle, it was when
 Giacomo was the only foe standing. By now, your deck count is probably very
 low, so you may be stuck with some useless Magnus. This alone can kill you,
 so make sure to block all of Giacomo's attacks with only armor Magnus, not
 weapons. 

 Use all of your offensive Magnus on Giacomo, especially Light and Water
 Magnus. Mizuti can use Sacred Wine and Holy Grails to revive and fallen
 characters now, if you have them. This part is at times, the toughest part of
 the battle (well for me it was).

 Once the deck has shuffled for all three characters, it's much easier for
 everyone. Giacomo will use two finishers in the fight: Imperial Force and End
 Slasher. We saw the latter in the first fight with him, but Imperial Force is
 much deadlier. It deals way more damage than End Slasher, so those two moves
 that Giacomo has can really be the turning point of the battle. Still, stick
 with it and use Light/Water Magnus to finish him off.

 This battle is known as the toughest boss battle in Baten Kaitos. I was level
 25 when I fought these guys. I followed the same tactic: eliminate Ayme
 first, then finish off Folon. Leave Giacomo last, even though he has the most
 HP. In all honesty, I didn't think the fight was that hard. I don't mean to
 brag, but I beat it on my second try. After the battle is over, you will get
 Hermit's Creel (some armor for Gibari) and Rarebird Statue (raises Xelha's
 class to level 5). Nice!

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Dear lord, that was not fun. The trio are all left wounded, but Giacomo isn't
finished yet. After a (what is thought to be final) talk with Kalas, Giacomo
reveals some very shocking information. The gang finds out that Giacomo was
the one who stole the Che End Magnus.

Even bigger, the party learns that Georg was Giacomo's father. Since Georg is 
Kalas's grandpa, Giacomo is none other than... Kalas's father! Wowie gee! He 
says that he was supposed to inherit Georg's power, but he didn't. In a burst 
of rage, he sets the ship on self-destruct mechanism.

Well, the Battleship Goldoba will blow up in five minutes, oh joy. Good thing 
that this aircraft is so tiny to maneuver through, the time limit is a gift. 
Exit the bridge and save at the red flower (could you imagine the game 
getting turned off without you saving here, having to fight the boss again? 
Truly chaotic). Enter the hub and walk to the other end. 

Follow the path to the engine room and collect Oil Essence in the golden pods 
on either side of the tanks. Once you have some, inspect the second tank on 
the left to use the Oil. The party hops in the tank and escapes as the 
Battleship Goldoba explodes. Is this the end of Giacomo and his goons? 

The party lands in the middle of a desert; Nihal Desert. Kalas will begin to 
talk to the group, which ends in everyone leaving to find a nearby town. 
Lyude bows down to remember Almarde, and heads off with the group.

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: Green Tea, Sculpting Knife, Crimson Oak Blossom, Lepus, Jumbo
           Pastry, Pork Ribs, Sunflower Coin, Mephistopheles Cloak, Secret
           Recipe 7, Rock Salt

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

 +-------------------------------+   Man, what a dull town. This shantytown is
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   made up of dirty caves and a nasty
 +-------------------------------+   landscape, if you ask me. Not exactly a
 | Aqua Burst Lvl. 4.......13000 |   place where you'd want to spend your
 | Death Pendulum..........10000 |   vacation at. There aren't buildings, but
 | Mohawk Birdie............9999 |   large caves where the people reside in. 
 | BLue Sky Mail............9500 |   
 | White Scepter............9200 |   Lyude will give you some background info
 | Chronos Blow Lvl. 3......9000 |   on this place. Supposedly Geldoblame used
 | Panther Claws............7500 |   the people here as slaves. After a while,
 | Coffin Shield............2500 |   the evil emperor sent Imperial troops to
 | Apple....................1000 |   dispose of anyone who resisted. The squad
 | Red Pickle Veggies........380 |   sent to eliminate the civilians was the
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   Mad Wolf unit. The party realizes that 
 | Shish Kebab (L)...........250 |   the squad leader was none other than...
 | Fruity Gelatin............200 |   Savyna. So, in turn, Savyna laid waste to
 | Chestnut Truffle..........100 |   many innocent people here, and in turn,
 | Shish Kebab (M)............75 |   she is immensely hated. I'm surprised she
 | Soybeans...................20 |   is let inside the village. First off, you
 +-------------------------------+   should save at the blue flower.

I am sure you've noticed the crowd of kids chasing after you wherever you go. 
Annoying, I know. They want some Magnus, so why not give some to them? Any 
Magnus will do, so I usually give 'em junk like Pristine Water or any other 
Quest Magnus that you don't need anymore. You can even pick up some Rock Salt 
Essence (found on the second floor of the cave) and give that to them. Once 
you give the kids thirteen Magnus, they will reward you with the 
Mephistopheles Cloak. If you give them 21 Magnus, they'll hand over Secret 
Recipe 7. 

When you're ready, enter the first cave. Check the furniture near the door 
for some Green Tea. Head through the door to the next floor. You can obtain a 
Sculpting Knife and Crimson Oak Blossom if you inspect the furniture. Go 
through the doorway, but walk to the right. You should be able to spot a 
secret tunnel leading to the right. Walk to the end and press A to open a 
chest. You will get the Lepus Constellation Magnus. Return to the doorway and 
go to the top floor. 

As you make your way in the top floor of the cave, the party meets up with 
some children. They won't let you pass, so go back down to the first floor. 
As you start to leave the cave, a little kid will yell at Savyna and call her 
a murderer. After, you will witness a super-duper flashback! It's of Savyna 
and her partner, Azdar, killing some people in this exact house years ago. We 
find out that Savyna's emotions get the better of her at times.

The soldiers blocking the entrance to the Lava Caves leave. Still, visit the 
Shop before departing. Pick up a Mohawk Birdie and Aqua Burst Lvl. 4. Check 
out the new weapons as well. After spending some cash and getting those 
goodies, head to the Lava Caves.


==============================================================================
 LAVA CAVES                                                             [0604]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Ceratobus, Foytow, Lanocaulis, Magma Beast
   Magnus: Dream Blade, Serpens, Grumble Pen, Shadow Thruster, Catfish
           Whiskers, Gold Earrings, Solar Saber, Lava, Sparkling Snow 

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

Before we actually enter the fiery hellhole that is the Lava Caves, we will 
end up in a long tunnel. Walk down the shaft towards the large door. As Kalas 
tries to open the door, he soon realizes that it's locked. A man will come 
over and invite you to his house. This guy is actually a mechanic, and he can 
easily fix the door. You learn that this mechanic was good friends with 
Larikush (from Cebalrai, remember?) and Kalas's grandfather, Georg. 

After a small talk, he will open the door. But first, there is a chest in the 
mechanic's house. Open it in the back of the room for Kalas's newest 
finisher: Dream Blade. Open the other chest for a Grumble Pen. Inspect the 
nearby barrel for a Serpens Constellation Magnus as well. Don't wanna forget 
that! Return to the wooden door and head inside the Lava Caves.

Of course, the Lava Caves is perfect for Gibari, so keep him in your party at 
all times. Travel across the path towards the fork, then follow it to the 
left. Open the treasure chest along the way to get a Shadow Thruster, then 
continue into the next room. The road is innaccessible, for lava is streaming 
across the area. Well, we're stuck. 

Return to the mechanic for some help on passing through the volcano. He asks 
for some Flame Ice, wherever that may be. Return to the Lava Caves and take 
the right path this time. You will soon reach a dead end, which is inhabited 
by much Flame Ice. Pick some and bring it to the mechanic. He turns it into 
Sparkling Snow Essence. You will get two Sparkling Snow Essences, which 
should help let you continue through the fiery wasteland.

Head back to the Lava Caves and return to the left path. Follow it until you 
reach the lava river, then use one of the Sparkling Snow Essences on it to 
turn the lava into molten rock. You can not only cross it, but descend it as 
well. Walk down the frozen lava to the bottom and walk to the right to come 
to a dead end. Open the two chests at the end for Catfish Whiskers (raises 
Gibari's class to level 5) and Gold Earrings (armor for Lyude). Return to the 
upper path and walk through the cavern.

On the other end is yet another lava river. Use the last Sparkling Snow 
Essence on it to turn it into stone. Walk to the bottom to find a red flower. 
Save here, and stop. The upper path leads to the boss's chamber, but we don't 
want to go there yet. Return to the blue flower in Azha and visit the church. 
Level up and cash in the Constellation Magnus, and use Gibari's new item to 
raise his class. Once you have prepared, return to this spot. 

This upcoming boss is really, really tough. I find it to be harder than our 
previous boss fight. Have Kalas, Mizuti, and Gibari in the party. Give them 
Water Magnus, as well as armor Magnus that resists Death. Believe me, you 
will need it. Mizuti's Sacred Wines and Holy Grails are a big help here. Once 
you are ready, walk past the lava river and enter the doorway.

Once in the large chamber, Xelha will find her pendant again and takes it 
back. The gang not only spots the final guardian, but Geldoblame as well. He 
has all five End Magnus, and as the guardian dissipates, the evil emperor 
begins to summon Malpercio.

Turns out that he is far too weak to do so, and he only summons the evil god's 
castle, Cor Hydrae. Not only that, but the summoning also turned Geldoblame 
into a giant monster. It looks like it's time to finally deal with this fat 
sucker once and for all.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Geldoblame
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 5500              Weak: Light (+80%) Water (+20%) Wind (+30%)
                     Strong: Dark (-80%) Fire (-20%) Chrono (-30%)

 Drop: Shadow Gate, Powder Snow Anklet 

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

 Yeah, I said it. Geldoblame is tougher than the trio of Giacomo, Ayme, and
 Folon. You wanna know why? The main reason why is simply because Geldoblame
 is a cheap bastard. He has one attack, Forfeit Your Life, which well, kills
 you in one hit. Yes, it is a big pain in the ass.

 The only problem is that Geldoblame uses the attack at the start of the
 battle. I faced him over 20 times, and EVERY single time he used Forfeit Your
 Life on his first turn. That means that unless your party member ends up
 having some Death-resistant armor in his hand and ends up surviving, then
 you're basically screwed.

 What I did was pack all three party members with armor like Shadow Suits and
 Assassin's Hoods. Their Death resistance can sometimes help against the
 attack. If not, then continue on with the battle with two characters. Use
 Holy Grails and Sacred Wines immediately on downed party members so you don't
 stay at a disadvantage.

 With that aside, Geldoblame is still one tough mofo. He uses a five-hit
 combo, ending with one of three finishers (Forfeit Your Life being one of
 them; he uses the attack rarely after the first time). Seal of Evil is his
 most deadly, dealing well over 500 damage each turn if unprotected. Poisonous
 Pollen deals less damage, but it can poison a character. On top of all of
 this, Geldoblame will use an extra turn to use Divine Seal, which restores
 his HP by 110. He uses it nearly every turn. Man I hate this guy.

 Once you get past all of the attacks, you have to deal with his high HP
 count. 5500 is a LOT, but his massive weakness towards Light is his real
 downfall. Pound Geldoblame will Light Magnus, and use Gibari to attack with
 Water Magnus. Geldoblame is friggin' tough, especially if he uses Forfeit
 Your Life again. I ended up beating him with only Kalas left alive.

 If you're down to one character, don't give up! After defeating Geldoblame,
 you will get Shadow Gate (finisher for Mizuti) and Powder Snow Anklet (armor
 for Xelha). It's over! Yes!! *pumps fists*

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Let me warn you that the next cinema is effin spoiler-ridden, and I will 
describe it in every detail. If you don't wanna get spoiled, then skip over 
to the next section. 'Kay?

Geldoblame will start to go out of control and act all funny. Typical crazy 
antagonist maneuvers. Out of nowhere, Melodia and several guards will enter 
the chamber. She orders the guards to shoot him down. They immediately target 
Geldoblame, who is shot off of a cliff and sent into the lava pits below. It 
turns out the Lady Melodia is the true evil, and she was using Geldoblame to 
obtain the End Magnus! 

So, Melodia was the strange narrator who was talking about Malpercio every 
time a guardian was defeated. She addresses the party and commandes that her 
servant steps forward. The gang realizes that there was a traitor in the 
party, but who? In the most shocking event of the game, none other than Kalas 
steps forward and greets Melodia! It looks like the main protagonist, the 
person you're playing as in the game, is actually a bad guy! 

It turns out that Kalas was working with Melodia for a while now, and that Che
was never actually stolen. Remember when Lady Melodia tripped and fell in
Parnasse, your first visit there? Kalas was oh so willing to help her up? In
fact, Kalas not only helped Melodia up from the ground, but slipped her the
Che End Magnus!

Melodia rewards Kalas with the almighty power of Malpercio. As Kalas turns 
into a demonic form of himself, the group is in awe. They tell him to stop, 
but he continues to grow stronger (and grow new wings). Kalas tosses his 
Guardian Spirit aside (why I'm appauled!). Well, Kalas has been reborn into 
an evil villain, and you have just witnessed the biggest plot twist in the 
history of gaming.

 IMPERIAL FORTRESS                                                      [0605]

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: Fire Burst Lvl. 4, Pot of Air, Whispering Wind, Spark Hat, Stagnant
           Water

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

The screen will be dark for a while, but the room lights up to reveal Xelha 
and Meemai. Despite Kalas tossing it to the curb, the Guardian Spirit pairs 
up with Xelha now, since she's the next-best good guy. Now we control Xelha 
for the time being!

Leave the cell and walk to the left. Enter the cell and open the chest for a 
Fire Burst Lvl. 4. Leave and continue down the hallway to the left. Pass 
through the circular room to the next hall and step inside the first cell. 
Open the chest for a Pot of Air and exit. Go inside the next cell to find 
Whispering Wind (finisher for Xelha). After leaving the cell, Xelha will hear 
some rumbling noises.

Continue down the hall to a dead end and open the treasure chest to get a 
Spark Hat. Proceed to the right to find a large hole, and head on through it. 
Xelha will come across a large white dragon, with three women trotting beside 
it. These old women, Kodelle, Glamyss, and Catranne, all call Xelha a queen. 

We don't really know who they are or how they now Xelha, but that's all we 
will find out for now. The dragon leaves as Kalas spies from afar. Ooh, he's 
all evil and stuff.

And just for the record, you can visit all five continents from now on.


==============================================================================
 KOMO MAI                                                               [0606]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

Xelha meets up with the leaders of the remaining three continents: King 
Ladhekahn of Diadem, Queen Corellia of Anuenue, and Duke Calbren of Mira. The 
leaders discuss battle tactics to put a stop to the minions of darkness who 
have escaped from Cor Hydrae. The three witches who found Xelha also help 
out. Corellia proclaims that the Interdimensional Cracks have appeared where 
the End Magnus once were. Why not check 'em out, right? 


==============================================================================
 SHRINE OF THE WINDS                                                    [0607]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

Initially, you must visit each of the five continents to inspect the 
Interdimensional Cracks. Each crack holds a boss you must fight. Afterwards, 
you will rescue one of your party members.

I have received an email from AquaticTiger with some interesting information:
"While you're right on where the party members exactly are, the boss you fight
for a given area is NOT dependent on where you go - instead, I'm positive that
who you fight in a given area is dependent on how many characters you've freed
already (Naiad when freeing the first, Thalassa when freeing the second,
etc.).

I say this because when I played that part I wound up going to Mira, then
Alfard, then Anuenue, then Diadem, and instead of having the order be jumbled
and getting Thalassa first, I still fought them in the order of Naiad,
Thalassa, Despina, Galatea." - Thanks a lot AquaticTiger!

With this new piece of info in hand, it really doesn't matter which order you
take when saving your party members.

When you reach the shrine, enter the crack to be transported to a temple. 
Approach the gate to read a clue. In order to open the gate, you must use a 
Magnus on it. The clue reads: 

"Set here the white Magnus. The symbol of freedom which flies in the sky."

Well, I don't know about you, but a Cloud Magnus seems to fit the 
description. Head out to Cloud Passage and get a Cloud Magnus from the wacky 
machine, then return to the temple. Use it on the gate to open it up, and a 
boss will appear immediately after. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Naiad
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 1400              Weak: Light (+50%) Water (+30%)
                     Strong: Dark (-50%) Fire (-30%)

 Drop: Goldfish Bowl, Spiraling Gale, Ophiuchus

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

 Wow, this is a really pathetic boss fight, if you couldn't tell from the
 measly HP count. Even though it's a one-on-one fight, you should really fly
 through it. If you have a Camera with you, wait until you can take a picture
 of Naiad. The picture isn't worth a lot, but if you're a collector, then do
 so. I believe Naiad only has one attack; a very pathetic one-hit attack that
 deals less than 100 damage. Heh, this guy is a mess.

 Pelt the boss with anything you've got; any Magnus will do. It's weak against
 Light and Water. If you have a lot of Light Flares and Aqua Bursts, you can
 probably kill Naiad in two or three turns. After the short battle, you will
 get a Goldfish Bowl (armor for Xelha), Spiraling Gale (finisher for Gibari),
 and Ophiuchus Constellation Magnus. That's a lot of stuff for such an easy
 battle. ;)

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After the battle, proceed to the walkway to free Gibari. Now you have a team 
of two! Leave the temple and head on to Mira, which is the next easiest area.


==============================================================================
 BALANCOIRE                                                             [0608]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

Enter Duke Calbren's manor and head to the basement. Return to the entrance 
to the Labyrinth of Mirrors. Don't worry, we won't have to traverse through 
that hellhole again. Step into the crack and approach the gate. 

"Set here the illusory Magnus. The plant which listens not to the reasons of 
this world."

Hmm, tricky. The only plant that I know of in Mira that was of importance is 
the Mirage Weed. And in fact, that is the Magnus we need. Head to the 
Mystical Garden and pick up some Mirage Weed growing on the walls. Return to 
the crack and use the Magnus. Hoorah, another boss battle!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Thalassa
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 2300              Weak: Light (+50%) Fire (+30%)
                     Strong: Dark (-50%) Water (-30%)

 Drop: Golden Barette, Hurricane Blade, Cancer

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

 Thalassa is yet another easy centaur boss. This boss is weak against Fire,
 just the opposite of the last boss from Diadem. Thalassa has a finisher, as
 well as a several-hit combo (ending with Tears of Destruction) to deal with.
 His attacks can freeze your party members, so cure if needed. Other than
 that, you don't have to worry about anything.

 Attack with more Light Magnus, since he is also weak against Light. Thalassa
 is also weak against Fire Magnus. I know Gibari doesn't have any Fire Magnus,
 so try to avoid his Water Magnus and stick with Wind. Even though Thalassa
 has a lot more HP than Naiad, it's still borderline pathetic. Once Thalassa
 is defeated, you will obtain a Golden Barette (armor for Savyna), Hurricane
 Blade (new finisher for Savyna) and a Cancer Constellation Magnus.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Once Thalassa is done for, approach the altar to free none other than The 
Great Mizuti. After the short chit-chat, exit the manor. Anuenue is our next 
stop, so head off.


==============================================================================
 CELESTIAL TREE                                                         [0609]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

Climb to the top of the Celestial Tree and enter the Interdimensional Crack. 
You will get another clue when you approach the gate:

"Set here the Magnus of life. The seed of lilfe from a glorious tree - a 
joyous reminder produced once every thirty years."

Well, that's pretty obvious; we need a Celestial Flower Seed. Return to 
Corellia's Palace and get one from her bedroom. Return to the gate and use 
the Celestial Flower Seed to open it. Get ready for the next boss.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Despina
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 3700              Weak: Light (+50%) Wind (+30%)
                     Strong: Dark (-50%) Chrono (-30%)

 Drop: Tearful Birdie, Mega Flood, Lyra

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

 Unlike the other bosses that we had to breeze through, Despina may give you
 some trouble. He has a lot more HP to cut through, and he uses another long
 combo. Despina will also use a deadly attack: Hours of Reckoning. While it is
 rarely used, it can instantly kill a character. Yeah, the nightmares of
 Geldoblame are already resurfacing. Hopefully one of your party members has
 some Sacred Wines and Holy Grails, so you should be fine.

 This boss is weak against, Wind, and you should have enough Magnus despite
 Kalas being absent. Pummel the boss with all Magnus and like the others, he
 should go down quickly. The only thing to worry about is the Hours or
 Reckoning Spell. Once Despina is gone, you will get the Tearful Birdie (armor
 for Mizuti), Mega Flood (finisher for Mizuti), and a Lyra Constellation
 Magnus.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Rescue Savyna from the altar and head off to Alfard. This is getting boring...


==============================================================================
 LAVA CAVES                                                             [0610]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

Return to the Lava Caves through Azha and head to the back chamber, where you 
fought Geldoblame. Enter the crack and walk over to the gate to receive your 
next clue. Oh goody!

"Set here the blistering hot Magnus. An all-consuming, fiery heat found in 
the infernal cavern."

Well, that's easy; it's obviously Lava Magnus. You can find Lava in the 
earlier parts of the cave. When you pick up some Lava Magnus, return to the 
gate to fight the final boss in the Interdimensional Cracks.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Galatea
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 5600              Weak: Light (+50%) Chrono (+30%)
                     Strong: Dark (-50%) Wind (-30%)

 Drop: Amethyst Earrings, Crescendo, Libra

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

 Well, Galatea does have a lot of HP, even more than Geldoblame. Even though,
 don't expect much of a fight from Galatea. Luckily, we won't have to deal
 with an instant-death spell like our last fight. Galatea also has a big
 combo, ending with Heart of the Maelstrom. It can deal a lot of Wind damage,
 so be careful of his attacks. Don't get too cocky, because Galatea isn't as
 much of a pushover like the others.

 I went with Xelha, Mizuti, and Gibari again for this fight. Savyna isn't
 really anything special. Once again, exploit Galatea's weakness for Light
 Magnus by using all of Xelha's Light finishers and other party members' Light
 Magnus. You can stick with Chronos Magnus as well. Galatea is the hardest out
 of the four bosses, but you should not have much trouble with him. Once you
 defeat Galatea, you will get Anethyst Earrings (armor for Lyude), Crescendo
 (finisher for Lyude), and the Libra Constellation Magnus.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Well, now it's time to rescue Lyude. The gang, all regrouped, will decide to 
return to Anuenue and discuss plans with the leaders of the other continents. 

Before going to Anuenue, stop at Mintaka. You can do this either before or 
after the boss fight at the Interdimensional Crack, but now seems more 
fitting. Return to Lyude's house and pick up those treasures: Intermezzo, 
Rice Papers, and Pretty Flowers. Give Lyude his new finisher and head to Komo 
Mai.


==============================================================================
 KOMO MAI                                                               [0611]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

The group decides what to do next. Entering Cor Hydrae head on won't do, 
since Kalas and Fadroh are too powerful. Mizuti mentions Wazn to the group, 
which seems like a good idea. The gang agrees to enter Wazn to find the witch 
queen, who could be of some help. After the conversation, return to the 
Mindeer to embark on a journey to Wazn. I recommend being around level 32 
before leaving for Wazn; you can always level/class up at Komo Mai.

Here we are, in the mysterious ice lands of Wazn.


==============================================================================
 ICE CLIFFS                                                             [0612]

 Monsters: Arachnid, Floomer, Flobo, Snow Cancerite
   Magnus: Leo, Forseti Robe, Aqua Burst Lvl. 4, Tower Shield, Deluxe Pastry,
           Shepherd's Purse, Snow, Sparkling Snow

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

Fight Flobos in the area until they drop the Deplhinus Constellation Magnus.

I'll inform you now that this place is a pain in the ass. Most of the time 
you can't see anything because of the wind, and trudging through the snow 
really slows you down. Argh. Anyways, walk over to the first chest in the 
corner and open it for a Leo Constellation Magnus. Before you get any 
farther, a mysterious voice will tell you of a barrier blocking the way to 
the castle. It won't be easy to get through. Yeah, whatever.

Walk to the next area and begin to go up the hill. Open the chest for a 
Forseti Robe and go left at the fork. You should spot a large portal thing at 
the end of the cliff. Press A next to it to make it disappear. You learn that 
this is one of the keys to break the barrier.

Take a right this time to come to yet another fork. Walk to the edge of the 
cliff to find another barrier. Press A next to it to break the seal, then go 
right again to the next area.

Once you reach the next intersection, stick to the right until you soon come 
to yet another fork. There is a chest near the wall, so open it for an Aqua 
Burst Lvl. 4. Again, stay to the right until you reach a cliffside. Break the 
key and go left this time to find yet another key.

Well, that's it; the barrier is destroyed after breaking the fourth key. Now 
return to the first intersection and take a left. Wade through the deep snow 
until you come to another buried chest. Open it for a Tower Shield and proceed 
north. 

The seal is broken now, so you can continue across. Get the Deluxe Pastry on 
the right and the Shepherd's Purse farther up on the left. The latter will 
level up Mizuti's class to level 5. Keep following the path until you reach a 
dead end. The group will try to figure out another way across to the castle, 
but Xelha has a plan. Somehow, she creates a bridge leading to the castle, to 
everyone's surprise. 


==============================================================================
 KAFFALJIDHMA                                                           [0613]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: Dancing Flames, Light Flare Lvl. 4, Young Wasabi Root, Shortcake
           (L), Phoenix Helm, Eel, Birdie Fatale, Green Tea, Full Helm, Golden
           Bugle, Snow, Stagnant Water

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

The group is surprised about Xelha, since she and everyone around her is 
acting weird. To make a long story short, it turns out that Xelha is actually 
the queen of Wazn. She will tell Barnette, her royal nanny, about Gram and 
Leon.

Remember, those two dudes who died in like, the first 10 minutes of the game? 
Yep, those two were Xelha's royal guards. Barnette tells Xelha that the Ocean 
Mirror can rid the world of the evil. It's found in the Lake of the Dragon, 
but preparations must be made first.

Okay, inspect the bed to find a Dancing Flames finisher. Check the pot to the 
left for a Young Wasabi Root and the table above for a Light Flare Lvl. 4. 
Exit the room and head to the red save flower to the right. Save, then go 
down the stairs in the center of the room.

Once on the previous floor, enter the room to the left. Examine the pot in the 
room for Shortcake (L). If you want to partake in the Wazn Animal Quest (more 
info in section 8), then talk to the old woman. Leave the room and visit the 
one to the right. 

Open the chest inside for a Phoenix Helm, then examine the furniture for an 
Eel and Birdie Fatale. Hopefully you still have the Warriors' Mementos from 
the very beginning of the game. If so, then you're in luck. First off, the 
Warriors' Mementos changes into the Warriors' Memories after 40 hours of 
gameplay.

Talk to the women in the room and give them either the Warriors' Mementos or 
the Warriors' Memories. Depending on which one you have, you will receive the 
Full Helm or Golden Bugle, respectively.

Leave and descend the stairs to the first floor. Walk to the room to the left 
and go inside. You can find Green Tea in the pot. Exit the room afterwards 
and exit the castle. That's all we can do for now in Kaffaljidhma (I hate 
that name).

Dark Flare Lvl. 4. Leave the house and examine the snowman on the left. You 
will find a Cloudy Emblem inside. Yep, that's really it in Cursa. Small 
place, I know. After scrounging for those Magnus, return to the castle.

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

We only have to make one more stop in Kaffaljidhma. From the first floor, go 
up the stairs to the right and enter the room. This is the dock of the White 
Dragon. This is not only the mode of transportation for royalty, but it's 
also the "mascot" of Wazn. I can tell, that thing looks kickass. After 
learning a bit about the dragon, a messenger will inform Xelha that Barnatte 
is ready for her in the Ritual Room.

Go up one two floor and go to the room on the right. Save at the red flower 
and enter to find Barnatte. Before talking to her, go around the altar and 
inspect the back wall for the Sagittarius Constellation Magnus. Talk to 
Barnatte to head off to the Lake of the Dragon. 


==============================================================================
 LAKE OF THE DRAGON                                                     [0616]

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

You will fight a very strange boss battle here, just Xelha herself against 
the Goddess of Ice. In order to obtain the Ocean Mirror, you must be faced in 
one of her "tests". It isn't a normal battle, let me tell you that.

It looks like a boss battle, but it isn't. When the test begins, seven Magnus 
face down will appear on the screen. A Magnus with a picture on it will 
appear in the top left corner. What you must do is randomly pick a card from 
the seven-card hand and hope that you get the one matched with the Magnus in 
the corner.

If you pick a wrong card, then it will disappear and you will take around 100 
damage. If you pick the correct card, the hand will disappear and the Goddess 
of Ice will take some damage. Pick four correct cards to win the battle.

There are two special cards found in each hand. The Camera Magnus will take a 
picture of the Goddess. Hopefully you will get one, since a picture of her is 
worth a lot. The other Magnus, a Chance Magnus, will reduce the number of 
cards in your hand from seven to two.

So if you draw the Chance Magnus, you have a 50-50 chance of getting the right 
Magnus. It's really easy, since you probably won't come even close to dying. 
After the test, you'll get a Holy Grail, Sacred Wine, and the Ocean's Mirror.

The party will then return to Kaffaljidhma.

After the party rests, return to the Ritual Room and speak to Barnette. She 
says that you must embark on a task before riding the White Dragon. each of 
the four ice sculptures of soldiers are without a weapon. Exit the castle 
into Cursa, and make your way in the second house on the left.

Talk to the man to learn that he is an ice sculpter. Unfortunately, he can't 
help out Xelha. On the other hand, his son is pretty darn good at sculpting 
and he can make the weapons for you. He says that Sparkling Snow is needed for 
him to make them.

Return to the Ice Cliffs and head to the second area. There is a patch of 
Sparkling Snow in the middle (need to find it? It's the patch that sparkles, 
Einstein). Trap the Sparkling Snow Essence and hurry back to Kaffaljidhma. It 
turns into Pristine Water quickly, so hurry back to Kaffaljidhma and enter 
the ritual room. Give him the Sparkling Snow and he agrees to make you the 
weapons. Inspect the sculptures to find out which one needs which weapon.

The bottom left one needs a shield, the top left one needs a bow, the top 
right one needs a halberd, and the bottom right one needs an axe. After 
choosing, talk to the boy and he says that he'll need a day to work on them. 
Return to Cursa and enter the shop. Choose "rest your wings" to sleep for the 
day. After, return to the boy and he will be done. Good job! And he doesn't 
even get paid or anything, shame...

Well, that's it! Head back to Cursa and enter the port on the right. Step
on the White Dragon to head off to Komo Mai. Xelha reveals her royalty to
the leaders, and everyone is surprised. After a short conversation, you can
leave. Return to Anuenue Port. Ride the White Dragon to Mintaka; we have
unfinished business to do...

There isn't much to do story-wise in Mintaka. The city has been invaded by 
Gagarek's, some of Malpercio's evil henchman. Many innocent civilians are 
being attacked by then through the city. Defeat them to help out the people, 
even though you won't receive anything other than EXP. Go around the city and 
keep fighting these monsters. 

Your next destination is the Imperial Fortress, which is a very challenging 
area. Level up until your party members are around level 34 or 35. Gagarek's 
are pretty easy, so fight them until you have enough EXP, then level up at 
the blue flower near the entrance. Once you're ready, exit Mintaka via the 
southwest exit and head to the Imperial Fortress.

 IMPERIAL FORTRESS                                                      [0619]

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

My god, that's a lot of garbage to find in the fortress. As the gang 
approaches the entrance, a rather nice soldier will inform the group that 
Melodia and Fadroh are deep inside. Defeat the Iron Beetle II outside and 
open the two chests at the end of the wall, both containing a Wave Cutter and 
Light Flare Lvl. 4. Enter the fortress through the gate and prepare for hell.

This place is BIG, and it's easy to get lost, since many of the rooms look 
similar. Luckily for us, the enemies on the first floor move in a scripted 
pattern, so it's easy to avoid them. Proceed to the left to reach a room with 
two elevators in it. Continue to the left to enter a mess hall. Open the 
chest in the corner for a Fire Burst Lvl. 4, then return to the previous 
room. 

Enter the left elevator, the one with the red arrow. This will bring up to 
the second floor. Once you get out, go to the room to the left to find 
yourself in an identical area. Go left once more to enter a bedroom. Inspect 
the bed to find Wolf Fangs. The description is pretty funny.

Examine the dresser next to the bed for a Deluxe Cream Puff and go right two 
rooms until you're back at the elevator room. From here, go right once more. 
Proceed north to a room and open the chest for an Aqua Impulse. Talk to the 
soldier and he will ask you to protect his cat, Whiskers. It's part of the
Wazn Animal Quest, so go for it.

Exit the room and go to the right to find yourself in another elevator room. 
Pass through and head into the room on the right. Well, this is the bathroom. 
Inspect the third urinal for an Aqua Yell Lvl. 1 and walk over to the stalls. 

Open the first stall to find a guard, looking at porno?!? Holy crap, what a 
surprise. He gets pissed and fights you. Eh, he's really damn weak. After 
disposing of him, examine the next stall for a Phoenix Helm. Open the third 
stall to find a guard hiding. He falls from the toilet and knocks himself 
unconscious. Xelha will grab the Prison Key from him.

Leave the bathroom and return to the elevator room that was used to reach 
this floor. Walk to the left to find an identical elevator room and ride it 
up. You may find this floor to be familiar; this is the floor where Xelha was 
held captive. Continue to the left and enter the first cell. Get the Pot of 
Air inside and leave, then continue to the dead end.

Grab the Elevator Card from the desk. Return to the elevator room and go right 
until you find a giant hole in the wall. Go inside and open the chests to find 
a Scorpius Constellation Magnus and a Dark Flare Lvl. 4.

Go back to the elevator room and ride back to the second floor. Go to the 
elevator room that was right next to the bathroom (in other words, go right 
through the two rooms). Use the Elevator Card to go to the fifth floor. Enter 
the room on the right upon reaching the floor.

There's a lot of Magnus to find here. Examine all furniture in the room and 
open all chests for Inferno Fists, Efreeti Suit, Dragonfly, Asura Tuba, and a 
Blood Sword. No one can equip the Blood Sword, so I wonder what that means? 

Proceed to the left through all of the rooms until you reach the throne room. 
Lyude will have a flashback from when he was an Imperial soldier. After the 
scene, go behind the throne and press A to find a Golden Bugle. Also open the 
chests for a Full Helm and Aqua Burst Lvl. 4. Save at the red flower and go 
to the elevator room to the right of the throne room. Go down to the third 
floor.

First things first, examine the electric fence to the right of the room. 
Obviously you can't go any further, but Lyude tells the gang that the 
security system can be used to lower the fence. Go to the left to enter the 
royal bedroom. Inspect the plants near the rocking horse for Birch, and open 
the cehst for Crown of Bubbles.

Check the bed and it will spin around, revealing a box. Open the box for a 
Cute Doll. Go to the mini pond in the center of the room. Collect four 
Stagnant Water Essences; you will need all four, trust me. Exit and return to 
the fifth floor.

Back on the fifth floor, go to the room at the right. From here, go up to 
find yourself in the security room. Examine the globe in the center. Lyude 
says that in order to power up the security system (that seems to have been 
shut off by Melodia), you will need to fill the globe with water. Use all 
four Stagnant Water Essences on it to power up the globe, in turn making the 
fence disappear. 

Save at the red flower in the throne room first. Return to the third floor 
and go through where the fence was to end up in a long corridor. Before the 
party can go any further, Fadroh will stop them. He goes on with the usual 
bad guy stuff: "I have to stop you since you don't like Malpercio, blah 
blah". Well, since Fadroh is in our way, we have no choice to go right 
through him! Well, not before he turns into a hideous monster. What a sight 
for sore eyes...
    

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Fadroh
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 7000              Weak: Light (+30%) Wind (+80%)
                     Strong: Dark (-30%) Chrono (-80%)

 Drop: Camera 3, Freezing Axe

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

 We haven't fought a boss in a long time, right? Well Fadroh here is going to
 fill the gap quite nicely. At first, Fadroh may seem like a pushover. His
 five-hit combo, ending with either Corrupting Light or Unholy Light, will
 deal less than 500 damage. I can get used to that. His two finishers deal
 Dark and Chronos damage, so block with proper Magnus. Your combos should deal
 over 500 damage to Fadroh. 

 Not long after the battle starts, Fadroh will use a devastating move called
 Orb of Magical Offense. The spell drastically increases his Attack. Now his
 combos will be dealing over 1000 damage, even if you block them! Needless to
 say, the battle becomes much more difficult.

 After Fadroh powers himself up, the battle is a lot harder. His 7000 HP is
 still easy to cut through, so keep using combos. His massive weakness to Wind
 should ultimately be his downfall. I used Gibari, Xelha, and Lyude in this
 battle. All of the characters should have enough Magnus to suit his elemental
 weaknesses.

 Your characters may die near the end, but use Sacred Wines if you get any in
 your hand. Fadroh is pretty tough, but you should still overcome him on your
 first try. You will get Camera 3 and Freezing Axe (finisher for Savyna) at
 the end of the battle with Fadroh.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

As Fadroh dies, he warns the party about the birth of Malpercio. Wow, like we 
haven't heard crap like that before. Proceed through the corridor to another 
room. Hm, another red flower? This can't be good. Save here and prepare your 
party for an even more difficult boss battle. 

I switched Xelha for Mizuti, since she has the powerful Heaven't Pillar 
finisher. Switch out all Wind Magnus and replace any Wind Blows with Chronos 
Blows. try to replace Dark Magnus with Light Magnus and give anyone armor 
that resists Paralysis.

Trust me, they help if you have 'em. For me, Lyude had Golden Earrings, which 
had 90% resistance to Paralysis. I switched Gibari's Goldfish Bowl with 
Moonlight Creel. Even though it lowers pretty much all his stats, it gives him 
a 100% Resistance to Paralysis.

I gave Mizuti, who was vulnerable, Pretty Flowers, Ocean's Mirror, and Curry, 
which all had Paralysis resistance. I don't usually flip out about all of 
this, but it will help.

Approach the catwalk to meet up with Melodia and Kalas. After a few quick 
words, she will sick Kalas on the group. Kalas, still corrupted, will vow to 
kill the group if they stand in Malpercio's way. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Kalas: Angel of Darkness
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 9000              Weak: Light (+80%) Chrono (+40%)
                     Strong: Dark (-80%) Wind (-40%)

 Drop: None

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

 You know what? We have a winner here. Kalas is the hardest boss in the game
 so far. Congrats kid. It should be pretty obvious that Kalas is weak against
 Chronos, but he's also weak against Light. You know, since he's all evil and
 stuff. Kalas has an obnoxiously large amount of HP, a lot more than Fadroh.

 He also has two very deadly finishers. Not only that, but he uses them after
 an eight-hit combo. After, he will either use Binding Winds or Fangs of
 Darkness. Binding Winds most likely will paralyze whomever it is used on,
 unless they use a form of resistance. Fangs of Darkness will drain your HP
 and restore his own. Unblocked, it will drain 596 HP from you and give it to
 him. Unfortunately, Kalas uses Fangs of Darkness a lot. 

 If you do not have Paralysis-resistant armor or Magnus in general, then you
 are done for. For now, Kalas will only use one attack per turn; either a
 seven-hit combo or an eight-hit combo ending with the deadly Binding Winds.
 He usually saves Fangs of Darkness for the end of the battle. I went with
 Mizuti, Gibari, and Lyude. I only chose Mizuti instead of Xelha because her
 stats were higher. You can choose either one, since both have finishers that
 Kalas is weak against.

 Lyude should have a lot of Light Magnus with him, as well as some Light
 finishers. I only picked Gibari over Savyna because he was the more powerful
 of the two. He has a lot of Wind Magnus, but that is alright. The beginning
 of the fight may seem rather easy. Attack him with everything you have,
 especially Chronos Blows and Light Flares. Things should go rather smoothly
 for a large portion of the fight.

 When Kalas has less than half of his HP left, the battle will become a royal
 pain in the behind. Kalas will start to attack twice in a row. What's even
 deadlier about it is that he uses Binding Winds in the first attack, then
 uses Fangs of Darkness. That means if your character gets paralyzed, then he
 will use Fangs of Darkness on you unblocked.

 Kalas will end up not only dealing a lot of damage from the first attack, but
 also drains 596 HP from you, giving it to him. This strategy makes the battle
 virtually never-ending if your party members keep getting paralyzed.

 Pretty Flowers, Roosters, Curry, and the Ocean Mirror really helps. The key
 to winning is to have your characters stay unparalyzed. Then you can block
 Kalas's second attack, and the HP drained will be much lower. Revive your
 characters with Sacred Wines and Holy Grails, and be sure to cure paralysis
 immediately. Attack Kalas for more damage than he gains, and the battle
 should end after a long time of fighting. On top of that difficult battle,
 you don't even get anything!

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After Kalas is defeated, Melodia proclaims that they key to ressurecting 
Malpercio are actually the party. She states that after every battle won, 
their power has rivaled that of a god, and they are the key to Malpercio's 
revival. Now that's what I call bad news.

Xelha uses the Ocean Mirror on Kalas, thinking that it will cure him. Instead,
it begins to slowly kill him. You'll see a flashback of Barnette. Even though
she said that the Ocean Mirror could help Kalas, she really lied in order to
make Xelha happy.

Well, this REALLY isn't good for the gang. Melodia ultimately summons 
Malpercio, whom looks cool yet lame at the same time. Kalas ends up removing 
the power given to him, and now he's back to normal! Malpercio attacks the 
party, but Mizuti stands in its way.

Several strange beings appear and help Mizuti weaken the beast significantly. 
Malpercio and Melodia escape afterwards. Drat. Kalas has a pretty long 
flashback about Fee and Georg, and how they promised to see the ocean 
together. Well, that didn't work out obviously. Poor kid. 

After the shocking scene, the party regroups at some random house with Kalas. 
He tries to apologize to everyone, but it must be hard. I mean, he kind of 
betrayed everyone and left behind his Guardian Spirit. Bastard. Anyways, the 
gang accepts him (especially Xelha, ooh) and the Guardian Spirit returns to 
Kalas. Mizuti ends up revealing that the people that showed up ealier were 
the Children of the Earth, and she is one of them. 

Mizuti says that the Children of the Earth live in Duhr, which is located 
under the Taintclouds. Gibari explains that there is no way for them to 
enter, since the Taintclouds are poisonous. Mizuti responds by telling them 
to simply hold their breath. Yeah, like that won't be hard. 


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

                                --<  DUHR  >--

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

Either way, the party goes along with it, and they end up at the Taintclouds. 
The group drops into the clouds and ultimately fall into a strange labyrinth. 
Apparently, Mizuti made a wrong turn somewhere. Don't worry, you're still 
kickass Mizuti.

Normally, the Labyrinth of Dur is a really hard place to find your way
through, but the ASCII map should help. When I give directions, it will be
from the map's point of view, not yours. So if I tell you to go left, it means
go left on the map, not in the game.

You start off right next to a save flower. Save and go south. Open the chest
against the wall for a Cinderella Birdie. Follow the path to the left until
you reach a dead end. Open the treasure chest here for Fangs of Light, a nice
powerful finisher for Kalas.

Return to the red save flower and go north, then go right. Snag the Metal 
Knuckles from the chest and get some Pristine Water Essence from the jars. 
Follow the path west a long ways to find a fork, then continue west. Move 
south to reach a dead end and you will meet up with a strange fellow.

Not only is he a member of Quzman's family, but he will help you find your way 
through the maze. Also pick up the White Ash from the chest here. Turn around 
and return to the fork, then proceed south. Open the chest along the way for 
a Sun Coin, then stop at the turn and open the next chest for a Hamelin Cloak.

If you continue along the path, you will come to a dead body. Inspect it to 
take it's only possession, a Pegasus Constellation Magnus. Wow, we're back to 
stealing from corpses? Nice one Kalas. Anyways, it's pretty easy to find your 
way, since there isn't a fork for a while. Pick up the Air Slash along the 
way until you do reach the fork. 

Go south to reach a dead end and meet up with a Mad Cancerite. Yet he doesn't 
want to attack you; just stand there and look tired. Upon inspection, you 
learn that he's dried out and covered in sores. Use the Pristine Water on him 
and he will not only give you Xelha's next finisher, Bells of Fate, but leave 
you in peace. I think the monsters in this labyrinth could learn a thing or 
two from him. 

Anyways, go north again and continue to the right. Go south until you reach 
one final intersection. The exit is directly south, but go to the right for 
now. Open the chest in the corner for a Sunflower Barrette and follow the 
passage north. You will come to a dead end soon after; open the chest at the 
end for a Platter of Parting. Now we can level up Lyude's class.

Return to the previous intersection and go south to get out of here. Walk 
through the empty smoking room to finally exit the labyrinth. From the world 
map, make your way to the nearby Gemma Village.

Despite this being a town full of Mizuti-like inhabitants, it's pretty normal.
First off, the shop. There is a lot of damn stuff in the shop, but most of it
is useless junk. Second, the shop is inaccesible for the moment, but we'll get
to that in a moment. 

Your first priority would be to talk to the Great Kamroh, but he is busy with 
a meeting of sorts. Alright then, lets explore the town. Save at the blue 
flower and proceed up the stairs on the left side of town. Mizuti will meet 
up with Kee, one of her friends.

After the scene, enter the nearby house to encounter Mizuti's parents. 
Surprisingly, they aren't as weird as her. They will thank the gang for 
helping Mizuti and also scold Mizuti for calling herself "great" all the time. 
Haha. Examine the shelves in the room for an Oakwood and Large Teamug, then 
exit.

Return to the right side of town (near the blue flower) and go up the stairs. 
Enter the house inside and examine the dresser on the right. Ignore the 
warning and take what's inside for a Slight Debt. Further on, you may notice 
a crapload of chickens. Pick one of those up, a Clucker, if you are taking 
part in the Wazn Animal Quest. Inspect the shelf on the left wall for some 
Peanuts, then talk to the man sitting near the large pot. 

He will ask to see Xelha's pendant. It turns out that the pendant is actually 
a piece of the Earth Sphere, an ancient artifact that was stolen from the 
Earth Children by the ancestors of Duke Calbren. It's safe to assume that it 
broke, and a piece was passed down to Melodia. She then gave it to 
Geldoblame, where Xelha stole it afterwards back in Pherkad.

Well, we can't really do much to stop Malpercio with a shard of it, so now it 
can be used as a normal Magnus. Still, the Broken Earth Sphere is really 
useful; it's similar to the Ocean Mirror yet it doesn't break. Give it to 
Xelha or Mizuti.

Talk to the man again and he will give you the Bootes Constellation Magnus, 
then leave the house. Return to the throne room and the meeting should just 
be wrapping itself up. A man (who appears to have been the one talking to 
Kamroh) barges out of the room in a rage and leaves. Head on inside and speak 
to Kamroh. Kalas thanks him for helping the gang earlier with Malpercio. They 
exchange words and the group even learns that Mizuti is a girl. Sure, I've 
been using "she" to refer to her, so you MAY have caught on earlier. ;)

The Great Kamroh suggests that the group collects the Sword of Heavens, the 
third artifact. It is found in Capella, the Garden of Death. He gives you the 
Garden of Death Key and sends the gang on their way. 

Before leaving though, we have one last thing to do. Go to the left side of 
the town and ascend the stairs. There is a flashing teleporter on the left. 
Go inside to be teleported to another side of town. There are teleporters all 
throughout the town, but if you enter the flashing ones, you will be taken to 
a rooftop with a chest. Open the chest for an Earth Buckle and equip it to 
Kalas.

Head over to the throne room and talk to the man on the right side of the 
ledge. He will be dumbfounded that you were able to open the chest; he says 
it's been there for ages and no one could reach it. He rewards your 
intelligence with a Siegfried Magnus. Now, off to the Garden of Death. 


==============================================================================
 GARDEN OF DEATH                                                        [0622]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Almanek, Ghoulish Skirmisher
   Magnus: Flashy Earrings, Whitecap Shield, Full Plate, Purple Rose, Rubber
           Mud

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

This place reminds me of the Ancient Library of Magic, mostly for the fact 
that both places suck. At least we won't be here for very long. The worst 
part is that the majority of the area is filled with thick mud that's hard to 
walk through. First, collect Rubber Mud Essence and trudge to the right. 
We'll take the right path so we can get a treasure. 

Once at the next area, walk by the logs until you reach the top, then walk 
onto the top log and proceed back down. Once you reach the final log, open 
the chest found at the end for Flashy Earrings, armor for Lyude. Get off the 
logs and back into the mud, then continue north.

Once you reach the small hut, save at the red flower and walk to the left. 
There are three chests hidden on the side of the hut. Open the first two for a 
Whitecap Shield and Full Plate. The third chest is hidden behind the hut; open 
it for a Purple Rose. You can use the Purple Rose to raise Savyna's class to 
level 5. 

Go inside the hut and approach the slab of stone in the back. By the looks of 
things, the Sword of Heavens is missing. Who knows where it is or who took 
it, but there's no need to stay here. After the gang finds out that the sword 
is gone, you will be teleported to the entrance. You can return to Gemma and 
give the Rubber Mud to open up the shop. Buy whatever you need there and 
return to the world map. Head past the Garden of Death to Algorab Village.

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

 +-------------------------------+   Well, another barren wasteland. Yawn. 
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   Duhr really sucks. This "town" mostly
 +-------------------------------+   consists of three houses and a shop. The
 | Chronos Yell Lvl. 1......1700 |   shop doesn't have much to offer either. 
 | Wind Yell Lvl. 1.........1700 |   There is a crowd of people standing next
 | Dark Yell Lvl. 1.........1600 |   to the shop in front of an alley. There's
 | Light Yell Lvl. 1........1600 |   a really good item in said alley, but too
 | Aqua Yell Lvl. 1.........1500 |   bad the people won't move. Argh, we will
 | Fire Yell Lvl. 1.........1500 |   get it sooner or later.
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   
 | Shish Kebab (L)...........250 |   Go up the ramp to the left and enter the
 | Fruity Gelatin............200 |   first house on the left. Talk to the few
 | Chestnut Truffle..........100 |   inhabitants inside to find out that the
 +-------------------------------+   mayor, Krumly, has taken the Sword of
                                     Heavens and left for Zosma Tower. Looks 
like he is going to offer it to "a god". Hmm, I wonder which god? I just 
can't figure it out!! Anyways, examine the jar on the left side of the house 
for an Aries Constellation Magnus and check the shelf near the top for some
Cherries. 

Exit the house and save at the blue flower. Level/class up at the church and 
head to one of two houses on the north end of town. You can find Divorce 
Papers and Curry in the left house. There is a Cassiopeia Constellation 
Magnus on a shelf in the top-right corner in the house on the right. After 
getting all the goods, save once again and head off to Zosma Tower to stop 
Krumly. Some people...


==============================================================================
 ZOSMA TOWER                                                            [0624]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Gul-Bar-Mool, Mysterious Shellfish
   Magnus: Firedrake Barrette, Burning Shield, Rhapsody, Weak Flame

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

Zosma Tower isn't your normal dungeon, because it actually features puzzles! 
And if you're like me, than that really sucks. Talk to the old men at the 
entrance to learn the whole jist of the place. It can get pretty complicated, 
but listen to his tutorial. Push the red block into the hole to create a 
staircase to the next floor. Grab as many Weak Flame Essences as you can hold 
(don't discard any valuable Quest Magnus though) and head up to the first 
floor of the tower.

Here's your true test of knowledge. Light the torch and push the blue block 
into the wall. When the red block raises up, climb up to it and push it into 
the wall. After the red block is implanted in the wall, another blue block 
will appear. Push it into the wall to make a path appear.

Go over to the walkway and you should see a yellow block fall and rise in the 
air; it's an elevator. Once it falls to the ground and acts as a platform, 
cross it to the other side. Open the chest for a Firedrake Barrette and return 
to the yellow block. This time step on it and ride it to the top. Head up to 
the second floor.

Light the torch and climb on the raised blocks. Push the blue block into the 
wall and drop down to the right. Push the red block into the hole to make 
three floating red blocks appear. Climb the floating red blocks all the way 
until you're at the top one. Push it so it slides into the wall, then drop 
down to the next one.

Slide that one into the wall, and do the same with the last red block. Once 
all three red blocks are pushed into the walls, climb up the stairs to the 
right to reach the yellow block. Ride it to the third floor.

Yay for difficulty! Climb the blocks in the center and light the torch. Push 
the red block off of the blocks onto the ground, then into the hole behind 
it. Go to the top-left corner of the room and push the blue block into the 
wall to make some floating blocks appear.

Climb them to the top and push both of them into the walls. Next, ride the 
moving block on the right side to the top. From here, push a red block to the 
ground and ride back down. Push the red block into the hole that's right in 
front of the moving block. 

Okay then, ride the block one more time to reach a sliding yellow block that 
moves to the left and right. As you ride it, you will reach a blue block. You 
must push the blue block into the wall while sliding across the room. After, 
a chest will appear on the ground. Go ALL the way back down and open the 
chest for a Burning Shield, then go ALL the way back up. Go back on the 
yellow block and once you reach the left side of the room, step off and go to 
the fourth floor. Geez, what a pain.

Okay, we are on the final puzzle! And it's pretty annoying. Light the torch 
of course and climb over the ledge to the other side. Push the red block so 
it is under either of the two raised red blocks. Once you do so, climb the 
red block you just pushed and push the raised red block to the ground below. 
Follow it to the floor below and push it to the center of the room.

There is a hole in the middle of the floor; it's kinda hard to see because it 
is slightly hidden by the two ledges. Push the red block that just fell to the 
ground into the hole. 

Climb the ledge to the other side to reach the other red block. You know, the 
one that should still be next to the ledge. Push that into the green hole 
next to you. Make sure that the hole that you push the red block into ISN'T 
below the other raised red block.

Now climb the ledge and push the final red block so it falls into the hole 
below. I made this last floor sound really challenging and it may be hard to 
understand me, but it's pretty much common sense once you figure out the first 
step or two. 

Climb the large pyramind that was just formed. Save at the red flower on the 
right and venture to the left side to find a chest. Open it for Rhapsody, one 
of Lyude's finishers. Give it to him and climb the pyramid, then ride the 
yellow block to the final floor. 

Okie dokey, we are on the final floor. Light the torch here and ride the 
yellow block to the top. Push the blue block on the right into the wall to 
make part of the floor lower. What's that, a giant head? Go to the left side 
of the room and push the blue block into the wall. Another head!

Keep going back and forth, pushing the blue blocks into the walls to lower the 
floor, revealing the ground, and two nasty dog foes. Once a red block appears 
on the left, walk over to it. 

Prepare your party right now for an upcoming battle (geez, I wonder against 
who?). I went with Kalas, Mizuti, and Gibari. You should really substitute 
Savyna instead of Gibari, since she is in a much better position here. The 
only reason I didn't use her is because she really sucks in my file. Oh well, 
push the red block in the hole on the ground to be lowered to the ground, 
right at the feet of these massive stone dogs! Arf arf!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Agyo, Ungyo
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Agyo  -  HP: 7000          Weak: Water (+80%)        Strong: Fire (-80%)

 Ungyo -  HP: 7000          Weak: Fire (+80%)        Strong: Water (-80%)

 Drop: Gemini, Prominence, Poseidon's Creel

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

 See? This is why Savyna REALLY works in this battle. Agyo and Ungyo are two
 elemental dogs which both share opposite strengths and weaknesses. Agyo is
 the fire dog; weak against Water. Ungyo is the Water one; he's weak against
 Fire. As shown, both of these guys have 7000 HP, which is a doozy in itself.
 Both Agyo and Ungyo have seven-hit combos. Agyo's finisher is Pillar of
 Flames, which can set you on fire. Ungyo uses Column on Ice, which can freeze
 you. Both dogs can deal around 600-700 damage with these attacks.

 Also both foes have a move that boosts their stats. Agyo can raise his
 Attack, whereas Ungyo boosts his Defense. With that said, take out Agyo
 first. With boosted Attack, his combo can deal around 1200 damage or more.

 Mizuti should be fine with her Aqua Bursts and Savyna can use her Water
 Magnus to deal a nice amount of damage to Agyo. It is pretty easy to rack up
 nearly 1000 damage if you have the right cards. Make sure to use healing
 Magnus and any Sacred Wines, because seeing your party members die isn't very
 rare in this battle.

 You should be able to take down Agyo without any serious trouble. Revive any
 characters and make sure to cure them of Freeze, because having them frozen
 is a real bummer. The battle is even easier if Agyo is hesitant to use his
 Attack-boosting spell (for whatever reason that may be). With Agyo out of the
 picture, it's a three-on-one assault on poor Ungyo. His raised Defense will
 make the battle longer, but you should have little to no trouble disposing of
 Ungyo, especially with all the Fire Magnus in your decks. 

 I had a lot of trouble with this battle, but that's probably because my
 Savyna... royally sucks. After the fight, you will receive the Gemini
 Constellation Magnus, Prominence (finisher for Mizuti) and Poseidon's Creel
 (armor for Gibari).

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Once the guardian dogs, Agyo and Ungyo, are finished, the party will reach 
the tower summit. Krumly is there, getting ready to offer the Sword of 
Heavens to Malpercio. Despite the gang's threats, he goes along with the 
plan. Krumly breaks the barrier around Duhr that kept the people safe from 
the events in the sky, and Malpercio ultimately appears. 

Melodia, being the evil villain that she is, denies the offering as Malpercio 
shoots a laser beam at Krumly. She says that Malpercio doesn't have to reason 
with him, and the deadly duo leave to Algorab, ready to dispose of the 
Children of Earth. Well, there's our next stop.

The gang leaves Zosma Tower (finally!). Before entering Algorab, switch out
Savyna for Lyude and equip any nice, new Magnus that you got in Zosma Tower.
It's even a good idea to stop at Duhr Port just to visit a blue flower. Once
you're ready, proceed to Algorab. 


==============================================================================
 ALGORAB                                                                [0625]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

You see the village in wreckage, and Mizuti's parents are present, along with 
many others. They tell the gang to leave immediately and take the Sword of 
Heavens back up to the sky. They say that they'll deal with Malpercio, and 
the party leaves angered. 

They reach the Labyrinth of Duhr, where Kalas stops. He tells the gang that 
he can't abandon everyone for dead, and that they must help out the Children 
of Earth, no matter what it takes. Aw, and here I thought he was an arrogant 
assclown this whole time.

The gang returns to Algorab, ready to face Malpercio! Everyone here is already 
dealt with, and the evil god is towering above the fallen inhabitants. In 
sheer rage and anger, Mizuti's mask breaks and she fires a blast at Malpercio. 
Melodia gets pissed and sicks him on the party. It...is...time!!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Malpercio
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 10000              Weak: Light (+80%) Chrono (+30%) Water (+20%)
                      Strong: Dark (-80%) Wind (-30%) Fire (-20%)

 Drop: None

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

 You'd think that the main antagonist of the game, an evil god bent on nothing
 but destruction and the pain of others, would be somewhat difficult in
 battle. Well... no. Despite a high HP count, Malpercio is a cinch. Hey, that
 is fine with me. Malpercio has a 6-hit combo that really isn't much to worry
 about. He has no finisher, but does use a move near the end of the battle
 which proves to be quite annoying.

 Also, this fight is a good opportunity to take a picture of Mizuti. Since her
 mask is broken and her face is revealed, a shot of her is really valuable. If
 you're lucky, you can get a picture of her smiling, which is worth a lot of
 cash. I was fortunate enough to get one, and I sold it for a heap. 

 You can really take Malpercio down a notch or two if you use Light, Water,
 and Chronos Magnus. You should be dealing a lot of damage to him, and if
 Kalas has the Sword of Heavens in his deck, that'll be good as well. Once
 Malpercio is on one knee, he will begin to use Soul Drain. Similar to the
 battle with Kalas, Malpercio will attack, then drain your HP equal to the
 damage delivered. 

 He probably won't even reach 1000 damage, so that means he will only heal for
 less than 1000 HP. While that may seem like a lot, you should be dealing
 almost that much with each character. If you're at least level 40, then the
 fight should be a breeze. Sadly, you don't get any Magnus afterwards.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Malpercio will fall, but he gets back up again and *gasp* destroys the Sword 
of Heavens. Man, all of those artifacts are now junk because of Malpercio. 
The gang really needs to take care of their valuables. :)

Malpercio and Melodia leave once again, and the party returns to Gemma. The 
Great Kamroh gives Mizuti a mask that was passed down for generations. Why 
does it look the same as her last one then? The group discusses with Kamroh 
the fate of Duhr. Since Krumly broke the barrier here, no one is safe from 
Malpercio's minions. It's decided that the Children of Earth will take 
shelter in Anuenue. 

Leave Gemma and head to Duhr Port. Save at the blue flower and heal up; you 
know, the normal stuff at the church. Once you're ready, board the White 
Dragon to return to Anuenue.

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

Once at Komo Mai again, speak to the leaders at the throne room. After the 
witches enter the room, they inform the group that a shield has been raised 
around Cor Hydrae, so there's no way of getting in. The witches deliver a 
letter to Kalas; from Larikush. Apparently he wants to speak with Kalas back 
in Cebarlrai. Head over to the farming hamlet from Anuenue Port.

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

When was the last time we were here? Like, in the first 10 minutes of the 
game. Wow, deja vu. You should still be familiar with the layout of this 
place. Head to the right side of town and enter Larikush's abode. Kalas will 
ask the gang to stay outside, for only personal matters will be discussed 
between the two.

Prepare for a really long scene here, and most of it is boring junk. Except 
for a few good twists. Larikush talks about his past with Georg and working 
in the Empire. He speaks about Georg's desire to create artificial life 
through a Magnus. One day he finally achieved that goal, and the creation is 
Kalas.

Kalas isn't a normal human being; he was created from a Magnus by Georg. Now 
that's what I call a shocker. Georg also created Fee using the same methods, 
although Fee was an all-around better result than Kalas. 

Larikush also explains that Giacomo, Ayme, and Folon were not artificially 
created, but they were given power from the research, ultimately becoming 
super-human beings I suppose. In the end, Geldoblame wasn't happy with Kalas 
and ordered Georg to dispose of him.

He refused (well duh) and him and Larikush agreed to destroy the lab so their 
work couldn't be tainted by evil. Larikush then goes really indepth about why 
the witches couldn't detect Kalas's Magnus. Some long lecture about blood, 
yawn.

Larikush tells Kalas to stop at the Celestial Alps. Him and Georg built a 
cottage where something very important is stored there, and that Georg wanted 
Kalas to have it. As Kalas is ready to leave, he asks Larikush one last 
question: who gave him his name? Larikush says that none other than Emperor 
Geldoblame gave Kalas his name. Kalas leaves and regroups, although shaken up 
from the coversation. Save at the blue flower nearby and exit Cebalrai. 

Go to Pherkad and board the White Dragon on the dock. We're off to the 
Celestial Alps, another random island floating in the sky.


==============================================================================
 CELESTIAL ALPS                                                         [0627]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Badwin, Rulug
   Magnus: Canis Minor, Apocolypse Sword, Air Slash, Azure Sand, Chaos Mail,
           Efreeti Saber, Silk Veil, Avocado, Straw, Skull Buckle, Holy Armor,
           Milk, Void Phantom

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

For one thing, the scenery is really purdy here. I like it. Walk up the hill 
from the entrance to the daed end, and open the treasure chest for a Canis 
Minor Constellation Magnus. Once you move to the left, a large tentacle will 
stop you. It turns out that this stupid bugs, Rulugs, keep interfering with 
your journey.

Every time you reach an area, there is one to stop your progress. It is right 
below the hill, so walk back down to the entrance and go to the left. Approach 
it to battle it. Once the Rulug is dead, the tentacle will disappear. Walk 
past where it once stood to reach the next area.

You will be stopped shortly by another tentacle; climb down the wall and 
dispose of the Rulug. Climb back up and jump down to the lower ledge. 
Continue to the left to find another tentacle.

Climb down the wall again and go to the right. There's a chest on the ledge, 
but another tentacle blocks it. Go back to the left and drop to the lower 
ledge. There's another chest at a dead end next to a climbable wall, but 
another tentacle is here to block it. Go back to where you jumped down and hop 
to the ground.

Defeat the Rulug to take down one of the tentacles. Now only two left. Move 
to the right to find yet another Rulug. Defeat it and return to the entrance. 
Climb back up to the top of the hill and drop down. Climb down the wall and 
go to the right towards first chest. Open it for an Apocolypse Sword, ooh. 
You might as well equip it to Kalas, since it's a good Magnus. 

Climb back up the wall and continue to the left. Drop down onto the lower 
path and defeat the final Rulug. Climb down the wall to the bottom, where the 
second chest lies. Open it for an Air Slash and climb back up. Head to the 
left to finally reach the end. 

This whole area is filled with Caplins, sheep-looking things. You can collect 
Caplins and Black Caplins (hidden to the left of the cottage, in a bush) for 
the Wazn Animal Quest. To the right of the cottage is a treasure chest; open 
it for an Azure Sand. This increases Kalas's class to level 6.

Approach the red flower and open the chest next to it for Chaos Mail. Make 
sure to save at the red flower. It may not be too bad of an idea to leave and 
go back to a place where a blue flower is present. This next battle is really 
tough, and you need all the help you can get. I suggest your party be at least 
level 45 for the upcoming fight. When you're ready, enter the abandoned 
cottage.

You won't get very far in the cottage until you hear a familiar voice. 
Giacomo?! Yep, the caped madman is back, not without his two henchman of 
course. It turns out that Giacomo didn't die in the crashing of the Goldoba, 
and he even picked up a new weapon to use against the party.

He throws some sort of dagger at the walls, which prevents Kalas's Guardian 
Spirit from communicating with him. I don't know what this does, because you 
can still use Spirit Attacks in battle. Oh well, prepare for a damn tough 
battle!

 BOSS: Giacomo, Ayme, Folon

 Giacomo - HP: 7000               Weak: Water (+50%) Light (+30%)

                                Strong: Dark (-50%) Fire, Chrono (-30%)

 Drop: Chaotic Illusion

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

 Surprised to see these goons again? Well I wasn't, and I wanted to cry. The
 battle against the terrible trio is more or less the same as the previous
 fight with them. All three members' HP have risen dramatically, and they are
 all weak against the same Magnus. The team will also heal themselves in the
 battle, which is a big pain. 

 Giacomo still attacks twice in one turn. Folon still uses Energy Injection to
 boost his Attack, but now Ayme will use Rough 'Em Up Drink on herself, which
 will raise her Defense. Bitch. And of course, all members use potions to heal
 each other, usually for around 1000 HP. Oh sweet joy, I love this fight.

 Instead of targeting Ayme first like last time, go for the big man Giacomo.
 He can attack twice, and if he happens to use a potion both turns, he can
 heal an ally of his for 2000 HP. We can't have that be happenin' through the
 fight. He also has the most HP of them all, so we're tackling the biggest
 problem first. Giacomo still uses Imperial Force and End Slasher. What I've
 noticed though is that Giacomo is actually the weakest of the trio.

 Pound Giacomo with Kalas, Gibari, and Mizuti; use any Light or Water Magnus
 you can find. With me, Giacomo fell in a rather short period of time; I was
 pretty surprised myself. Ayme will try to heal him when he is down to low
 health, but that shouldn't stop you.

 Once big bad Giacomo is down for the count, the battle gets significantly
 easier. Go for Ayme next, since her nine-hit combo is a pain. She is most
 likely the reason why you have to shuffle your deck so early and constantly.

 Ayme also uses a finisher which can freeze you. She does have the lowest HP
 count, so hit with Light, Fire, and Chronos Magnus to put her away quickly.

 With only Folon left, the battle is virtually a joke. He still uses Chaotic
 Flames and Worg Laser, but he's no match for three opponents (assuming that
 no one died). Gibari alone could take him down with all of his Water and
 Light Magnus. Folon should be out in no time. Battle over! Or is it...?

 Okay, here's the real sucky part. After the battle ends, you will see a small
 cutscene. Nothing major, Giacomo just trash talks Kalas and breaks his wing.
 All of a sudden, the mantlepiece breaks to reveal another winglet inside!
 Georg's gift? Kalas puts it on and the fight starts over again! Yep, you have
 to fight all three enemies again.

 Of course, your party is healed and fully shuffled, but it still sucks big
 time. Well, if you can beat them once, you can beat 'em again! Once the
 battle ends (again), you will receive the Chaotic Illusion Magnus (a finisher
 for Kalas). I promise, that's the last time you have to fight these guys!

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After your second tango with the trio, Giacomo is shown lying on the ground, 
mortally wounded. Ayme and Folon are fine though, but Giacomo is hanging on 
by a thread. In his last words, he asks Ayme and Folon to help Kalas and the 
others. After that, Giacomo dies (finally!). I think that's too bad, because 
Giacomo kicked ass. Oh well. 

Despite Giacomo's request, Ayme and Folon cannot come to terms with the gang. 
The two explain that they were born in Azha, then taken by Geldoblame as test 
subjects. Ayme says they're still enemies, and that she is actually happy 
that Georg is gone.

With that, the two of them leave, bitter to the end. As they leave, Ayme does 
some sort of hand gesture. I can't tell if she was flipping the party off or 
giving them thumbs up. Grr. Well, screw them, we don't need their help! The 
group leaves the Celestial Alps and returns to Komo Mai.

Oh yeah, the treasures here. There's a lot of stuff there, so don't miss out 
on it. You can come and pick it up whenever you want in the future, but for 
now we are headed to Komo Mai.

Many odd things have been occuring throughout the world. Speak to Catranne to 
learn about all of the unfortunate events. This starts the character 
sidequests, so after this, Cor Hydrae is next. Once you have listened to her, 
the group will leave.

Each character sidequest is located on the following continents: Diadem, 
Anuenue, Mira, Alfard, and Duhr. Since we're already in Anuenue, we might as 
well go for that sidequest. It just so happens to be Xelha's quest.

Before leaving the palace, enter the guest room on the right. Talk to the 
maid to obtain the Secret Information Essence. Leave the palace and enter the 
School of Magic on the right side. Enter the far-right room and talk to the 
little girl at the table reading the book.

She just so happens to be the principal of this place, and she is reading the 
Book of Magic. She won't share it with the gang until you retrieve her a book 
that was stolen from her. 

Exit the school and enter from the left side of town. Go in the far-left room 
and inspect the bookcase on the left wall. Collect the Adventure Novel 
Essence and return to the principal. Give her the novel and she will allow 
you to read the book. All of a sudden, the room flashes and the party is 
transported to a strange realm. Was this the doing of the book?

 ILLUSORY FORTRESS OF THE BOOK                                          [0629]

 Monsters: Alavarum, Varalba
   Magnus: Apple Pie (Whole), Aqua Truth, Bloody Vortex, Linnet Statue, Skull
           Anklet, Silk Veil

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

No one knows where the hell they are, and they seem to be in a room filled 
with many doorways. Only one of the 12 doorways leads further into the 
fortress; the others are a random monster encounter. It's actually good 
training to fight the monsters in the fortress, since they give good EXP.

If you want to hurry through, then go through the doorway that is third on the
left (going from top to bottom). Go through and open the chests in the hallway
for an Apple Pie (Whole) and Aqua Truth. Xelha will use her weirdness to open
the door, and witness a flashback of when she was young.

Afterwards, the gang seems a little concerned about her, since no one else 
saw the flashback. The next room is the same as the entrance; another set of 
doors. Enter the topmost door on the right to find yourself in another 
hallway.

Open the set of tresure chests for a Bloody Vortex and Linnet Statue. The 
Linnet Statue raises Xelha's class to level 6. Xelha will open the door and 
see another flashback.

Into the third room. Just like the entrance, go through the doorway that is 
third on the left (going from top to bottom). Once again, collect the chests 
for a Skull Anklet and Silk Veil and save at the red flower. Equip these new 
Magnus and go through the door. Xelha and the gang find the real Book of 
Magic on the ground.

Xelha gets ready and unleashes its power. The room fades and several ghosts 
appear. Xelha tells them that she is the last Ice Queen, and they test her. 
They test her by throwing a menacing beast at her!! How proper.

 BOSS: Kulcabaran
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 10000         Weak: Wind (+80%)           Strong: Chrono (-80%)

 Drop: Galeos Fangs, Aqua Burst Lvl. 6, Seal of Water

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

 Kulcabaran is a big phony. A big, fat phony! In all seriousness, I figured
 these character sidequests would test the strength of the party as well as
 the featured character. Well, no. Kulcabaran is just a stupid Sabre Dragon
 impersonator, and he's about as easy as said boss. He will use a five-hit
 combo for most of the battle. He only has one weakness, but it's a serious
 one. Use Kalas and Gibari to destroy him with Wind Magnus, and I'm sure Xelha
 can use some Wind Blows to take out a lot of damage.

 The fact that you are probably dealing over 1000 damage with each hit is
 pretty impressive. Near the end of the battle, when Kulcabaran is wearing
 down, he will begin to use Dark Implosion. Not only will it deal a lot of
 Chronos damage, but he will absorb all damage dealt to you. Still, that
 should only be around 500-600 damage, so no biggie. 

 Don't expect much out of Kulcabaran, because you will be seriously brought
 down if you do. Once the dragon is done for, you will get an Aqua Burst Lvl.
 6, Galeos Fangs, and Seal of Water (finisher for Xelha). Nice spoils if you
 ask me, considering the boss was about as cool as a steaming turd.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

The party will be transported out of the book once Kulcabaran is dead. From 
here, you can go for any character sidequest. The order that I list has no 
real importance, so it really doesn't matter that much. Personally, I went 
with Gibari's quest for no real reason. Off to Diadem!


==============================================================================
 NASHIRA                                                                [0630]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: Creel of the Whale

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

The town is filled with monsters, but Gibari will destroy them all and help 
out the knights. Kalas learns that Gibari was once a Diadem knight, and he 
asks him why he quit such a rad job. Gibari replies that he doesn't need to 
explain his life story to a 19-year old. Ouch, harsh; did Kalas strike a 
nerve or something? 

Anyways, go into the bar on the right side of town. Walk over to the table on 
the left (nearest the entrance) and talk to the man on the far side of the 
table. Give him the Secret Information Essence and he will reward you with 
the Creel of the Whale. Equip it to Gibari and head outside. 

Enter the house on the right of the shop to meet up with an old grandma. 
Apparently her grandson, Shorty, has fallen ill. Okay, stop right here: who 
the hell names their kid Shorty? That kid probably gets the snot kicked out 
of him in school.

Anyways, the kid is sick and Anna, the barkeeper, has ventured to the Greater 
Celestial River to get some medicine (Pekusa Seaweed). Reblys, Gibari's 
longtime rival, has gone to help her. The river is dangerous, so Gibari and 
Kalas agree to find them safely. 

Return to the White Dragon in Sheliak and board it. The Greater Celestial
River will appear on the world map; select it and embark to your next
destination.


==============================================================================
 GREATER CELESTIAL RIVER                                                [0631]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Maw-Maw-Goo, Shadow Claws
   Magnus: Power Blade, Buoy of Light, Battle Suit, Corvus, Skull Creel

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

The Greater Celestial River is more or less the same as the Lesser Celestial 
River. It's kinda ironic, the Greater Celestial River is a lot shorter than 
the Lesser Celestial River. Whatever, sidequests are supposed to be short. 

Walk down the path until you reach the edge; you should be able to climb down 
to a small ledge. Open the chest on the ledge for a Power Blade and climb 
back up. Go up the ramp and open the next chest for a Buoy of Light. This 
increases Gibari's class to level 6.

Enter the next area to find Reblys, exhausted. He says that Anna is further 
ahead. Walk to the left to find a chest and a dead end. Open the chest for a 
Battle Suit. Go to the right this time and walk to the edge, you will end up 
under a rock (you can't see yourself). Press A to pick up the Corvus 
Constellation Magnus. 

Now walk up the ramp in the center and open the treasure chest for a Skull 
Creel. Jump over the gap at the right to reach the red flower. Save here, and 
I'm sure you know what's coming next. Enter the next area to find Anna.

After a conversation, she says that the river is flooded, and there's no way 
to get the seaweed for Shorty. Reblys arrives on the scene and suggests to go 
fishing! Wha? Gibari says that if they catch a fish and gut it, there's bound 
to be some seaweed in its stomach! 

Gibari and Reblys fish the badass way; with giant logs. Reblys finally 
catches a giant fish, and Gibari helps to reel it in. Unfortunately, the fish 
on the reel is the Lord of the Greater Celestial River. That doesn't sound to 
good, and I'm sure this fish is pissed.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Brokolis
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 13000         Weak: Fire (+80%)           Strong: Water (-80%)

 Drop: Dragoon Gale, Balgora's Paddle, Nemesis Fall

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

 Brolokis has the highest amount of HP so far, but surprisingly, he is not as
 tough as you'd think. Gibari must be in your party for this one, and I went
 with Kalas and Mizuti. Savyna could substitute out Mizuti if she's good
 enough. Brolokis has a decent attack.

 The most annoying part about the battle is Venomous Droplets. Brolokis, like
 the Thunderfish earlier, will use Venomous Droplets, this time on two
 characters. That's an instant poison spell, which can be a pain in the butt.
 Brolokis also uses a six-hit combo ending in Frost Cloud. The latter can
 freeze your party members, so watch out for that one, mmkay?

 Frost Cloud doesn't deal that much damage and doesn't usually freeze a
 character. The big fish can deal around 1000 damage if you're not careful.
 Use Mineral Waters and healing Magnus to protect your party.

 The battle might take a long time because of the high HP, but your party
 should have enough Fire Magnus to give this guy a run for his money. With the
 80% weakness against it, attacking him with Fire Magnus is the key to
 winning. The fight against Brolokis is fairly long, but not very hard.

 After defeating Brolokis, you will earn a Dragoon Gale, Balgora's Paddle, and
 Nemesis Fall (new finisher for Gibari). Can't complain about those, right?

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After the fight ends, Gibari will find some Pekusa Seaweed in Brolokis's 
mouth. The two rivals begin to fight in the most CHILDISH WAY POSSIBLE, and 
it's really annoying. Hey, lets have a laughing contest! Stupid Gibari. Onto 
better news, Shorty is cured and granny thanks everyone back in Nashira. 

Reblys presents Gibari with Balgora's Paddle and the gang leaves. See ya! 
From here, I went to the Phantom Goldoba, but it's all up to you.


==============================================================================
 PHANTOM GOLDOBA                                                        [0632]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Master Revenant
   Magnus: Hades Horn, Jasper Gem, Skull Earrings, Agni Tuba, Mithril Helmet

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

When flying to Mira, the Phantom Goldoba will pursue you. Choose to check it 
out and the group will enter the ghastly ship. From the entrance, go up the 
stairs and open the nearby chest for a Hades Horn. Exit to the left. Now all 
you must do is enter each room on the ship. You don't have to defeat any 
enemies if you don't want to, just go in a room, collect the stuff, then 
leave. First, go south to the engine room. There's nothing here, so return to 
the previous room. 

Enter the northeast room next. Lyude will have a vision of his siblings, 
Skeed and Vallye. The illusions blame Lyude for the Empire's downfall and say 
that he was never loved. He breaks down and the gang thinks he is losing it, 
since they don't see any of it. Collect the Jasper Gem inside and leave. 
Enter the northern room and exit immediately. There are enemies inside, but 
you don't have to fight them. 

Go in the northwest room to see another vision. Lyude will see an illusion of 
the Imperial Commander and he will just bash Lyude and talk about how he's a 
traitor. The gang is concerned for Lyude's well-being. Grab the Skull 
Earrings inside and leave. Now proceed south to the next room.

Follow the corridor and open the chest at the end for an Agni Tuba. Go up the 
stairs and go across the catwalk. Open the treasure chest at the end for 
Mithril Helmet and equip all the Magnus you just got. Stick Lyude in your 
party and return to the hub room.

Lyude will see one final illusion; it is of Almarde. The mirage tells Lyude 
that he is hated by all and he doesn't deserved to be loved. Lyude gets 
pretty torn up by these words, and the illusion tells Lyude to join it. He 
begins to, but he has a flashback of Almarde.

After the flashback, he breaks out of the trance and the illusion is revealed 
to be a giant monster, similar to Gnosis and Sikri. Apparently it fed off of 
Lyude's sorrow and grew stronger. Well, there's only one way to take it out, 
right? Battle time!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Rampulus
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 13000              Weak: Light (+80%) Wind (+50%)
                      Strong: Dark (-80%) Chrono (-50%)

 Drop: Apple Pie (Whole), Vishnu, Presto

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

 Rampulus is by far the most annoying sidequest boss that I have had to deal
 with. Having HP as high as Brolokis, Rampulus is weak against two elements.
 Rampulus only has a four-hit combo, ending in Symbol of Slumber. This attack
 usually puts a party member to sleep.

 While that is annoying on it's own, Rampulus also uses a spell to increase
 its Defense. He uses it often, so you really never get a chance to deal a lot
 of damage to him. Because of this, the battle tends to be pretty long at
 times, especially if your characters are all asleep. =/

 Its weakness to both Light and Wind is very important, so Kalas and Lyude
 should have a field day here. The battle gets annoying again when Rampulus
 starts to use Death Count. It's a one-hit KO attack, so that's bad enough on
 its own. Luckily, it doesn't hit often. In fact, I was never hit by it.

 The key to beating Rampulus is to deal a lot of damage quickly so your
 characters aren't put asleep or killed in a flash. That's tricky because of
 his increased Defense though. It may take a while, but the Rampulus will fall
 at your test of might. You get an Apple Pie (Whole), Vishnu, and Presto
 (finisher for Lyude) at the conclusion of the battle.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After Rampulus is history, Lyude will see the four illusions one last time 
before they disappear into the air. The gang (somehow) leaves the Phantom 
Goldoba, and that's that. I chose to go with Savyna's sidequest next, so if 
you're following my route, then onward!


==============================================================================
 NIHAL DESERT                                                           [0633]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Laramooga
   Magnus: Skull Barette, Rooser, Dragon Plum Bud, Centaurus, Red Impulse,
           Galeos Fangs, Chaos Mail, Holy Armor, Stoked Flame, Pristine Water

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

 +-------------------------------+   The group meets up with Imperial soldiers
 |        - MAGNUS SHOP -        |   at a small camp in the middle of the
 +-------------------------------+   desert. The party enters a cave, where
 | Shrimp..................13500 |   Savyna encounters Azdar again. He thanks
 | Deluxe Pastry...........10000 |   the group for their help and says that
 | Skipjack................10000 |   monsters are waiting on the other side of
 | Eel......................8500 |   the cave. It's best to take them out the
 | Salted Sweetfish.........7500 |   next day. Well, okay then, time to rest.
 | Young Wasabi Root........7100 |   
 | Squid....................2500 |   The party camps outside as Savyna opens
 | Shampoo..................1500 |   up to the group. She explains how she was
 | Deluxe Shish Kebab.......1000 |   one of the soldiers at Mira when Georg 
 | Wheat Crackers............300 |   and Fee were killed. She says that she
 | Shish Kebab (L)...........250 |   was raised to kill, and she didn't know
 | Fruity Gelatin............200 |   what else to do other than run. Savyna 
 | Chestnut Truffle..........100 |   says that she is different for the fact
 +-------------------------------+   that she cannot kill innocent people
                                     anymore. Well that's good. The group 
gets some rest and returns to the cave in the morning. Well, it's time to 
prepare. Search the barrels on the left for a Centaurus Constellation Magnus. 

Open the chest on the right for a Dragon Plum Bud; it's essential for 
leveling Savyna's class to level 6. Search the furniture nearby for a 
Rooster. Leave the cave to the entrance and walk up on the hill. It's hard to 
see, but there's a chest out there. Open it for a Skull Barette and return 
inside. Also, Savyna spots a girl who was back at Azha, one who told her to 
leave and called her a murderer.

Before leaving for the desert, go over to the pots on the lower left side of 
the cave and collect Pristine Water Essences. Get as many as you can (I held 
six at the beginning). Once you have enough, talk to the girl near the 
ladder. She will give you a compass and lets you go out to the desert.

The desert is composed of square areas. To exit/enter an area, you use up one 
Pristine Water Essence. If you run out of Pristine Water Essences when you 
try to leave or enter an area, you will faint and be returned to the cave. 
Below is a pretty basic (but accurate) map of Nihal Desert. 
                                 
                      _____   _____   _____   _____      E = Entrance
                     |     | |     | |     | |     |     O = Oasis
                     |  O  | | 6 R | |     | |  O  |     R = Red Flower
                     |_____| |_____| |_____| |_____|     B = Boss
                      _____   _____   _____   _____      5 = Red Impulse
                     |     | |     | |     | |     |     6 = Galeos Fangs
                     |     | |  B  | |  8  | |     |     7 = Chaos Mail
                     |_____| |_____| |_____| |_____|     8 = Holy Armor
                      _____   _____   _____   _____
                     |     | |     | |     | |     |
                     |  7  | |     | |     | |     |
                     |_____| |_____| |_____| |_____|
                      _____   _____   _____   _____
                     |     | |     | |     | |     |
                     |     | |  O  | |  5  | |  E  |
                     |_____| |_____| |_____| |_____|

Each number represents where you can get a Magnus. To get the desired Magnus, 
you must talk to the person stranded. Give him a Pristine Water Essence and 
he will give you the Magnus. Remember, that's one less essence you need. Do 
the math and figure out if you will have enough to make it to an oasis, where 
you can restock your supply of Pristine Water Essences. 

I suggest getting all Magnus here. A small side note: in the oasis next to 
where you find the Red Impulse, you can catch Olifants. So if you're doing 
the Wazn Animal Quest, pick one up. Once you get all the Magnus and you have 
enough Pristine Water Essences, go to the Red Flower (don't go through the 
area with the boss in it). Save and go south to fight a boss. Azdar and his 
band of men will be sidelined by monsters, until all of a sudden a giant 
beast rises from the sand!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sowzana
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 12000         Weak: Water (+80%)           Strong: Fire (-80%)

 Drop: Green Light, Phoenix Crest, Hellblood's Hammer

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

 It's like we are fighting Fadroh all over again! Sowzana looks just like the
 evil general, and luckily he is just as easy. Just like the fight with
 Rampulus, this one will be quite long. Just as Fadroh used Orb of Magical
 Offense, Sowzana will use the opposite: Orb of Magical Defense.

 This spell raises his Defense dramatically, making it very hard to put a dent
 into his HP. He also uses a six-hit combo, ending in either Evil Vermin or
 Hyper Wicked Light. Both are pretty fearsome attacks, causing over 800-900
 damage at the end.

 My Savyna still sucked eggs up at this point, so this battle was very 
 annoying and somewhat hard. Just like how Brolokis poisoned us and Rampulus
 put us to sleep, Sowzana can paralyze us. The joys of status effects. His
 main weakness is Water, so use Kalas, Savyna, and Gibari for this encounter.

 Make sure to heal characters' HP using goodies such as Eels and Salted
 Sweetfish. Sowzana's Defense will most likely be boosted through the whole
 battle, so try and cut him down with Water Magnus. Once Sowzana is defeated,
 you will earn a Green Light, Phoenix Crest, and Hellblood's Hammer (finisher
 for Savyna). 

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Once the battle ends, Sowzana will be poised and ready to attack. The little 
girl who called Savyna a murderer runs into the battlefield shouting "father".
Savyna learns that this monster was once the girl's father. She says that the
people in Azha were disposed of in the Lava Caves, and the taint of Malpercio
must have turned all the corpses into monsters.

Sowzana attacks Savyna, but she stands defenseless. He then goes over to the 
little girl and swings his mace at her, but Azdar stops it. He tells the girl 
to leave, and that her father is no more. Savyna runs up to deliver the 
finishing blow on Sowzana. 

After the scene, everyone is at peace in the desert. The little girl will 
thank Savyna and gives her a gift before running away. Finally, the girl who 
hated Savyna for the evil deeds she performed on Azha has forgiven her. 
Savyna recieves the Phoenix Crest, and the gang says farewell to Azdar and 
the soldiers. One more character sidequest to go. I'm lookin' at you, Mizuti! 
Head down to Duhr and stop at Zosma Tower.


==============================================================================
 ZOSMA TOWER                                                            [0634]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Breacher, Gul-Bar-Mool, Mysterious Shellfish
   Magnus: Tradescantia Petals, Aquila, Skull Birdie, Weak Flame, Delinquency
           Stone

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

When the party lands in Duhr Port, a Child of the Earth will tell Mizuti that 
Kamroh, Krumly, and Kee have entered the bowels of Zosma Tower. It's 
dangerous in there, so lets try and find them, eh? From the world map, head 
down to Zosma Tower. 

Once again, collect Weak Flames from the fire and a yellow block will appear 
on the ground, moving to the basement. Collect as many Weak Flames as you can 
before stepping down into the basement. I must warn you, these puzzles are 
flippin' HARD, and you will get pissed at them.

Onto the first floor, joy. Climb across the series of red blocks to reach a 
platform with a torch. Light it and climb up the red block again. Your task 
is to push the high red block to the right. Make sure the yellow block that 
you came down on is out of the way. 

Once it is, push the red block to make it crash into the one beside it. That 
red block will be pushed into a hole in the wall, while the first one will be 
moved over to the right. Return to the block with the torch and climb down to 
the ground. Walk to the right side of the room and climb up the next set of 
blocks.

Defeat the Breacher in the way and climb up the red block to the right. The 
block that you previously moved is right in front of you; push it to the back 
wall. Return to the torch again and stand near the red block next to you. 

This is the hard part. What you must do is line up the yellow block so it is 
NEXT to the red block on the other side of the room. The yellow block will 
stop moving once you push the red block. Wait for the two blocks to be lined 
up, then push the red block to your right.

If you're lucky, it will crash into the red block on the other side of the 
room and be stopped by the yellow block. Go over to the right side of the room 
again; there should be three blocks left. Push the one on the right so it 
slides into the rightmost wall. This should raise a block right next to you.

Step on the raised block and push the top-right red block into the back wall. 
Finally, push the last block into the back wall.

A staircase is created and a chest appears at the top. Climb up the stairs 
and open the chest for a Tradescantia Petals. These allow Mizuti's class to 
be raised to level 6. Personally, this is one of the harder floors despite 
the first one. Step onto the newly found yellow block and go to the second 
floor.

Light the torch on the left once you reach the platform. The yellow block 
will stop at two spots: the upper floor and the lower floor. It doesn't go 
all the way to the ground. And by the way, you're on the upper floor. Ride 
the block to the lower floor and step to the left.

Begin to push the nearby red block across the platform. Now here's the tricky 
part: begin to push slowly. Once it is adjacent to the top platform, get 
ready. SLOWLY push it about halfway across the remainder of the platform. Make 
sure that there is still room on the other side of the block, or you will have 
to start over. 

Return to the upper floor and walk to the end of the platform. Climb down 
onto the red block, then climb down to the other side of the platform. Now 
push the red block backwards across the platform. Push it all the way so it 
falls down to the ground and into a hole. That was the hard part. Now go to 
the right side of the lower floor and push the two blue blocks into the 
walls. Some enemies will appear on the ground; go down and defeat them. 

Use the yellow block to ride back up to the upper floor and step to the 
right. Push the red block off of the platform and onto the lower floor, where 
the blue blocks were. Return to the red block and walk AROUND it. Push it 
down onto the ground. Make sure not to push the red block to the right, or it 
will get stuck. From there, push the red block to the bottom corner of the 
room and into the hole. That's it! Ride the yellow block to the third floor.

You will be lowered onto a platform; climb down to the ground. Defeat all of 
the enemies on the ground to make moving things a lot easier. Light the torch 
to the left and walk over to the lone red block. Push it to the right and sit 
it right in front of the pillar made up of two blocks.

Use the red block to climb up the pillar and to the top. There's nothing but a 
Gul-Bar-Mool here, but you must defeat it or it'll get in the way later. With 
it out of the way, climb back down to the ground.

Take the red block and push it to the left side of the room, in front of 
another pillar. Climb up to the top of the pillar and walk to the left. Here 
you will find another red block, but DON'T PUSH IT. Just climb over it to a 
high ledge. Climb back down on the other side to reach a red block.

To the right of the red block is where the Gul-Bar-Mool was; if you tried to 
push the red block he would have been in the way. So now push the red block to 
the right and off of the platform. It'll fall into a hole. 

Climb back down to the ground and take the red block again. Ah, that trusty 
red block. There is a hole in the upper-left corner of the room, but DON'T 
PUSH IT IN. Simply push the red block so it is diagonal from the hole. Climb 
up on the red block and you will be able to reach a ledge.

In fact, you are behind the red block that I specifically told you not to 
push. Now you can push it down the path and into the hole at the end. With 
that done, return to the ground and push the final red block into the hole. 
The treasure chests will be lowered to the ground. Open them for an Aquila 
Constellation Magnus and Skull Birdie. Ride down to the fourth floor. 

We are almost done! I can taste the sweet victory. Luckily, this floor is the 
easiest one! Light the torch and push the red block that's next to you. Push 
it so it lands on the ground. Climb down onto the ground and walk to the left 
side of the room.

Climb back up so you're on the other side of a red block. Push this red block 
across the path (the path was created by the red block that's now on the 
ground). Push it so it is right in front of the torch. Climb down and get on 
the platform with the torch, then push the red block down. It will fall into 
one of four holes. Climb down where you just placed the red block to reach the 
other end of the room.

Climb up the platform and push the nearby red block so it falls to the 
ground. Walk across to the other red block and push it to the left. Make sure 
that it DOESN'T FALL TO THE GROUND. Drop down to the ground and return to the 
other side of the room. Push the block that's on the ground into the hole, 
then do the same with the other block that is on the ground. Return to the 
final block and push it into the last hole.

That's it, we are done! A red flower will appear near the top of the room and 
the blocks and platforms will all disappear. Ride the yellow block to the red 
flower and save. Return to the ground floor and ride the other yellow block to 
the basement.

Mizuti and the gang will find Krumly, Kamroh, and Kee. You will see some 
other people, specifically Mizuti's parents, but it looks like they're 
ghosts. Did they die at Algorab when fighting Malpercio? Huh. They are face 
to face with the Wizard Shadow, and they want the shadow to give them the 
Ring of Stars, which will help Mizuti and the others fight Malpercio. The 
evil wizard says that they aren't worthy, and attacks them all. 

Mizuti runs over to Kee and scolds him for staying away from danger. He tells 
her that he only wanted to help, and he was tired of Mizuti sticking up for 
him all his life. It was his turn to help the fight. Mizuti thanks Kee, and 
stands up to the Wizard Shadow.

Like Xelha's test back in the Lake of the Dragon, Mizuti is given the same 
thing with Wizard Shadow. It's not a battle, but a game of luck. The Wizard 
Shadow draws a card, and Mizuti must pick a face-down card out of a hand of 
seven.

If she draws the matching card, then Wizard Shadow will get hurt. If not, then 
Mizuti is the one who takes damage. If you draw a Camera, then you'll take a 
picture of Wizard Shadow (it's worth a lot!). Drawing a chance card will drop 
the remaining cards down to two; it's now a 50-50 shot of picking the right 
card.

This "battle" is all about luck, so it's all up to you. Once the battle ends, 
you will get a Wizard Robe, Fire Burst Lvl. 6, and Alias Fall (finisher for 
Mizuti).

After the test, Mizuti boasts and continues to call herself great as her 
parents lash out on her. Ha ha. The party leaves the tower and returns to 
Anuenue. Head out to Komo Mai to make preparations for the final battle. 


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

                             --<  THE FINALE  >--

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

This is your last chance to do ANYTHING. Make sure that you have completed 
all sidequests (if you wanted to; I recommend it) and are around at least 
level 60. There is a blue flower in Cor Hydrae, so not all is lost. Once you 
are ready, return to Komo Mai and enter Corellia's Palace.


==============================================================================
 KOMO MAI                                                               [0635]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: None
   Magnus: None

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

Speak to Corellia when you're ready. The party will meet up with everyone at 
the palace to discuss the final preparations. The witches appear, with Lord 
Rodalfo as well. It looks like he will be helping out with this too.

Corellia states that they will use the power of four End Magnus to break the 
shield; using Sadal Suud, Diadem, Anuenue, and Mira. Since Geldoblame is dead, 
there is no one with the potential to harness the power of the End Magnus, so 
Alfard is out of the question. The gang will get some rest in a bedroom.

While in the room, the party talks about Melodia and Malpercio. Xelha brings 
up a point how everything in the world contradicts itself. Maybe Melodia was 
the curse to Malpercio, while Kalas is his prayer. Maybe Kalas is the omen to 
Malpercio, and they were destined to fight. Ah, who cares anyways. The group 
rests and returns to the palace in the morning. 

The four continents all use the power of the End Magnus to break the shield, 
but nothing is working at first. It seems that the power is too weak to break 
the shield. All has failed, and Malpercio has finally won. Or so it seems. 

All of a sudden, the power of the End Magnus from Alfard shoots towards the 
shield. Who could harness the power though? It turns out that Ayme and Folon 
have returned, and they are using the power to break the shield. The shield 
around Cor Hydrae breaks, and the party flies in. This is it!


==============================================================================
 COR HYDRAE CASTLE                                                      [0636]
==============================================================================

 Monsters: Apollion, Demonic Hands, Diabolos, Vorleg, Wolgarb
   Magnus: Chronos Blow Lvl. 6, Fire Burst Lvl. 6, Shield of Hope, Mermaid
           Nails, Sybil's Crown, Wind Blow Lvl. 6, Voice 6, Firefly, Wind Blow
           Lvl. 6, Brahma Eupho, Lord of the Wind, Dark Flare Lvl. 6,
           Desperada, Light, Flare Lvl. 6, Venus Garb, Chronos Blow Lvl. 6,
           Esperanza, Aqua Burst Lvl. 6, Golden Helm

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

This is the mother of all dungeons, the home of the God of Destruction: Cor 
Hydrae Castle. Ah, lovely. As the party enters the castle, they are greeted 
with five ghastly entities. In fact, they are the five Sibling Gods: He, Ar, 
Bo, Che, and Le.

It looks like we will have to get through them first before facing Malpercio 
and Melodia. They disappear as the group worries about their power. Open the 
two chests in the entrance for a Chronos Blow Lvl. 6 and a Fire Burst Lvl. 6.

Go through the doorway and walk across the path. You will see on reach what I 
like to call the hub room. It not only has a blue flower inside, but five 
separate paths to take.

Each path leads to a Sibling God, and you're willing to tackle them in any 
order. My order shown in the walkthrough isn't necessarily the best, but it's 
the order that I beat them in the game. First off, clear the room of enemies 
and visit the good ol' church. Level up here and prepare for your first 
Sibling God battle. Hopefully you should be around level 60 or 61. Save, then 
head north down the first path.

Almost immediately after entering, the room will be swarmed by Diaboloses. 
You will have to battle a few of them, so don't try to avoid them. While 
battling them, open the chests along the way for a Shield of Hope and 
Mermaid's Nails. Exit the hallway to reach a small room. Open the chest near 
the door for a Wind Blow Lvl. 6.

There is a glowing orb on the other side of the room. Examine it to make a 
chest appear somewhere else in the castle. Make sure your party consists of 
Kalas, Lyude, or Mizuti (or Xelha). Walk through the doorway at the end to 
confront the first Sibling God, He!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sibling God He
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 14000          Weak: Dark (+100%)         Strong: Light (-100%)

 Drop: Wheel of Light

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

 He is pretty easy for your first Sibling God. In fact, they're all somewhat
 simple fights. The fact that Lyude is in your party should totally bring He
 to his knees. He is weak to Dark Magnus (with a very BIG weakness at that)
 and Lyude has plenty of 'em in his deck. He is capable of dishing out a seven
 -hit combo, ending with Flash Bang, which is very a powerful move. He will
 also use Seal of Sanity, which can confuse a party member in an instant.

 Like I said, Lyude will be your main man in this battle. Mizuti has a nice
 amount of Dark Flares, and Kalas might have a couple Dark Magnus in his deck.
 Lyude has plenty of Dark finishers, such as Diminuendo and Sforzando. You
 will most likely be dealing over 1000 damage each turn with your party
 members.

 Near the end of the fight, He will use Seal of Health, which restores his
 health by 2100. Still, it doesn't do much good with your all-out assault. He
 should fall in no time. Once the battle ends, you will get Xelha's final
 finisher, Wheel of Light. In fact, the Sibling Gods drop all of your final
 finishers after you kill them.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

With Sibling God He out of the picture, a beam of light will appear in the 
center of the hub room. It looks like once we defeat the rest of the Sibling 
Gods, we can use the portal in the center to reach Malpercio. Return to the 
hub room and save/level up. 

From the hub room, take the upper-right passage. Demonic Hands will storm the 
hallway, but it's possible to avoid them. Avoid the enemies and examine the 
orb. A chest will appear in another room. Enter the next area and open the 
chests to get Voic 6 and a Firefly. Stack your decks with the new Magnus and 
switch Lyude out for Savyna. Enter the next room to face off with Ar.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sibling God Ar
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 14000          Weak: Water (+100%)         Strong: Fire (-100%)

 Drop: Deadly Heat Scythe

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

 Sibling God Ar is just like He, but he has a major weakness to Water. He
 should be a hell of a lot easier than the previous god, mostly because of
 Savyna. My Savyna sucked, but regardless, she kicked major ass here. She
 should have plenty of Water Magnus, as well as Gibari and Kalas. Yep, I
 switched out Mizuti for Gibari. Seems reasonable.

 Ar has a seven-hit combo ending with Firebird, which can put a party member
 on fire. Like all of the other gods, he can use Seal of Sanity and Seal of
 Health. He doesn't use the latter until the end of the battle, so that is a
 pretty big plus.

 Savyna and Gibari will decimate Ar alone, and Kalas should also take out a
 lot of HP with his Aqua Truths and Water Blade finisher. You should still
 keep an eye on your character's health, since Ar can deal a lot of damage
 with his attacks. Once Ar uses Seal of Health, you know it's almost over.
 Deliver the finishing blows and he will be gone in no time. Once Ar is
 defeated, you will earn Savyna's last finisher, Deadly Heat Scythe.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Equip that finisher to Savyna immediately, as we will need it for another 
Sibling God. Leave the room and return to the hub. Another beam of light will 
appear; only three more gods to eliminate. Heal and save at the blue flower, 
then take the upper-left path.

Once again, avoid the Demonic Hands in the narrow hallways. It is possible to 
do so. Enter the next room and open the chests for a Wind Blow Lvl. 6 and 
Brahma Eupho. Examine the orb to make a treasure chest appear somewhere else 
in the castle. Go through the door, where Che is waiting for you.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sibling God Che
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 14000          Weak: Wind (+100%)         Strong: Chrono (-100%)

 Drop: Ultimate Geyser

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

 Like Ar, Sibling God Che is another pushover. Gibari and Kalas alone can take
 him out, and Mizuti should do just as well. Che is weak to Wind Magnus,
 therefore your party should destroy him. He has a nasty seven-hit combo,
 ending in Spark of Time. This attack can paralyze a party member, which is
 annoying to no end (especially if he uses the attack frequently). Cure the
 character of the ailment or at least watch their HP so they don't die on you.

 Anyways, your offense should be pretty obvious. Kalas most likely has several
 strong Wind Magnus with him, as well as Gibari. Both have at least one Wind
 finisher, and Mizuti has Alias Fall. Those alone can really put the pain on
 Che. With the right cards, you can deal over 2000 damage in one combo. Che
 will use Seal of Health at the end of the battle, but that should be rendered
 useless by your nine-hit combos. After the battle, you will earn Ultimate
 Geyser, Gibari's final finisher. Now that's what I like to see.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Three down, two to go! Once Che is down for the count, return to the hub room 
once again. Make sure to heal and level up some more, and switch Gibari for 
Savyna at this time. Take the bottom-left path to reach a rather complicated 
room.

This area is filled with teleporters, and it can get pretty hectic. From the 
start, go down the path and enter the teleporter at the end. You will be 
transported to an area higher up. Now go BACK in the teleporter that you just 
came from to end up to an area above. Now enter the northern teleporter. You 
should be taken to an area with a chest. Open it for a Desperada. Go back in 
the teleporter you came from.

You'll be taken to a dead end. Go back in the teleporter again. Walk down the 
path to the nearby teleporter and step in. You will be at the top of the room 
again. Go south to the red teleporter and go on in. You will find yourself at 
another treasure chest. Open it for Kalas's last finisher, Lord of the Winds. 

Equip it immediately and step back in the teleporter. Follow the walkway to 
reach another orb. Inspect it to make a chest appear somewhere else in the 
castle.

Return to the teleporter you came out of and go inside. Open the next chest 
for a Dark Flare Lvl. 6. Step through the teleporter to end up at the 
entrance to the room. Go back in the teleporter you came out of to end up 
above you. Enter the southern teleporter to end up at the top of the room 
again. Go inside the lefternmost teleporter to reach a walkway.

Go across the exit this damned room. Once in here, open the lone chest for a 
Light Flare Lvl. 6. Equip it to your characters and enter the room to face off 
with Bo. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sibling God Bo
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 14000          Weak: Fire (+100%)         Strong: Water (-100%)

 Drop: Finale

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

 Once again, another pushover of a Sibling God. Bo is the complete opposite of
 Ar, and he's just as easy. Like before, use Savyna for this battle. The plus
 side about the situation is that you now have Deadly Heat Scythe, which is a
 Fire Magnus. And what exactly is Bo weak against? Nice. on the bad side, Bo
 has a mean seven-hit combo, which he ends with Icy Burst. It can freeze you,
 and it happens quite frequently. Still, the goods overcome the bads in this
 battle (like most of the boss battles in Cor Hydrae).

 Sibling God Bo still isn't much to overcome. Savyna can take him out on her
 own. Mizuti and Kalas can also hold their ground, with their share of Fire
 Bursts, Efreeti Sabers, etc. Bo will use Seal of Sanity and Seal of Health,
 but he only uses the latter once. Once he does, you know it's time to use
 your full-out assault to take him down once and for all. With Bo defeated,
 you will receive Finale, Lyude's final (LOL) finisher.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Ok, now Sibling God Bo is destroyed. That leaves only Le! Go back to the hub 
room and level up/save. You should have gained a good five or six levels 
since the start of this dungeon. I was around level 67 when I fought the 
final Sibling God (my lesser-used characters were only level 60, mind me). 
Take the bottom-right path to enter another annoying room.

This room is full of elevators, which will lower and raised platforms in the 
room. Approach the green pillar nearby and examine it to raise the platform. 
Walk over to the nearby chest and open it for a Venus Garb. Lower yourself 
back to the ground and walk towards the red pillar in front of you.

Inspect it to raise the platform, reaching another chest. Open it for a
Chronos Blow Lvl. 6. Lower yourself again and check the nearby green pillar.
You will lower to the bottom, then walk over to the red pillar. Check it to
raise back up to the ground level. 

Run over to the green pillar all the way on the right, then examine it to 
lower down below the ground. Step onto the platform with the red pillar, then 
inspect it to raise back up. Go over to the next green pillar to raise up, 
then step to the red pillar to the left. Examine it to raise up to the orb. 
Examine it to make a chest appear somewhere else in the castle.

Lower yourself to the green pillar, then use that to lower yourself again. 
Step on the red pillar next to you to go back down to the green pillar. 
Examine that to raise back up. We're doing everything in reverse now! Go back 
to the left and examine the red pillar in the middle of the room. You will 
lower to a green pillar. Use that to raise back up to normal level.

Finally, now you can run across to the right and finally reach the exit! Exit 
to another small room. Switch Savyna out for Gibari and open the nearby chest 
for an Aqua Burst Lvl. 6. Go through the doorway to meet up with the final 
Sibling God, Le!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sibling God Le
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 14000          Weak: Chrono (+100%)         Strong: Wind (-100%)

 Drop: Planet Soul

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

 Wowie, a semi-tough Sibling God? I can't believe my eyes! The main reason for
 that is because Le is weak against Chrono. With Chronos Magnus being the most
 scarce in the game, you really have to rely on your other Magnus (except
 Wind) to beat him. My Gibari only had three Chronos Magnus in his deck, and
 Kalas had somewhere close. Mizuti had plenty of Chronos Blows, and all three
 party members have Chronos finishers. Despite that, Le is still a pretty hard
 and long boss battle.

 Le will use a seven-hit combo, ending with a nasty finisher which can poison
 you. He'll use the finisher often, so you might have two or even all three
 party members poisoned at one time. Use them Mineral Waters to prevent that
 and take down Le with Chronos Magnus. Gibari's Smash Tackle, Kalas's Dream
 Blade and Chaotic Illusion, and Mizuti's Heaven's Pillar should all work
 nicely. Once past that, it gets quite annoying.

 Stick with any Magnus other than Wind and you should still deal a lot of
 damage to Le. Once he uses Seal of Health, deplete his remaining HP to defeat
 the final Sibling God. Once Le is gone, you'll get Mizuti's final finisher,
 Planet Soul.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Finally, all five Sibling Gods have fallen to the might of the party. The 
final beam has been created and the center tile in the hub room has turned 
into a large portal. Return to the hub room and level up, as well as save. I 
recommend fighting some battles and level up before facing Malpercio. You 
should be at least level 70 before facing the evil god. Once you are ready, 
enter the portal to be taken to the upper level.

Head north to enter a walkway, then avoid the Demonic Hands that run across. 
Prepare your party and I suggest having Kalas, Mizuti, and Lyude in the 
party. Once you're ready to face the God of Destruction, step into the next 
room.

The group first sees the spirits of the five Sibling Gods as they ender the 
chamber. The gang meets up with the duo, and Melodia has decided to finally 
put you away, in what she calls the Throne Room of the Gods. Malpercio flies 
down and stands in the way of the heroes.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Malpercio
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 16000              Weak: Light (+50%) Wind (+20%)
                      Strong: Dark (-50%) Chrono (-20%)

 Drop: None

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

 You're up against Malpercio yet again, and the fight isn't much different
 then the battle in Algorab Village. Malpercio has a lot of HP, but damn, it
 will whittle away fast enough if you're a smart player. Malpercio has a seven
 -hit combo that ends with Divine Doom.

 It's a pretty nasty attack which can inflict numerous status effects on a
 character. His attacks will do around 1000-1500 damage normally, but they're
 a lot less when you block them with the proper Magnus. Malpercio will also
 use Soul Drain through the battle, draining your HP and adding it to his own.
 That's a drag, of course.

 I cannot stress this enough, pay attention to the effin' Spirit Numbers! I
 didn't really use them that much through the game, and I started to during
 this battle. If you can get a couple pairs of cards or even a straight, then
 the damage dealt to Malpercio is incredible. Mizuti is the easiest to use for
 this, since her attacks are slow. I had an attack that went through totaling
 normally for around 1500 damage.

 Luckily, the bonuses from Spirit Numbers increased the damage to around 4000.
 I mean, it makes things go so much faster and easier. Attack Malpercio with
 the normal Wind and Light Magnus, and this one should end rather quickly. I
 wouldn't worry about status effects here unless they are deadly ones, such as
 Paralysis. Other than that, just ignore them and pound him into submission.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Melodia will be enraged at Malpercio losing, but the leaders make their 
presence at the battlefield. Duke Calbren will beg Melodia to stop, but she 
refuses. Then, the duke finally reveals something horrible about Melodia's 
past. He will tell Melodia about something that happened nine years ago. 
Apparently, Melodia was struck with a plague that killed her parents, and she 
was slowly fading. Nothing would work, and Melodia actually died. Yep, 
Melodia died nine years ago.

Duke Calbren couldn't live with the fact that his granddaughter was gone. He 
heard a voice that night that he could bring her back. So, Duke went down 
into the Labyrinth of Mirrors with Melodia's body. He then used the power of 
the End Magnus to revive her! And that's that.

You'd expect Melodia to be surprised, and she is. In fact, she's pissed that 
the duke couldn't just leave her to die in peace. Wow, make up your mind 
woman. In a blind rage, she flies into Malpercio's body and merges with him! 

Malpercio also absorbs the power of the five Sibling Gods and turns into a 
superhuman version of the God of Destruction. He actually looks pretty cool, 
well cooler than his previous form. Malpercio then flies out of the castle 
and makes his way onto the roof. You can actually go back to the first floor 
and save at the blue flower. That would actually be the best move, so you can 
level up to around 73 or 74. 

When you meet those requirements (or somewhere around that), return to the 
Throne Room of the Gods and go to the right. Ascend the stairs and open the 
chest along the way for a Golden Helm. Save at the red flower along the way, 
then go up the next flight of stairs. My party for this fight was Kalas, 
Mizuti, and Gibari (I forgot to switch him out for Lyude, so use Lyude here). 

My levels were as followed: Kalas was 74, Mizuti was 73, and Gibari was 73. 
(Lyude was 73 as well, but bah). Step onto the rooftop to meet up with super 
Malpercio. It is time to end this once and for all. This is the final 
confrontation with the God of Destruction, Malpercio.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Malpercio
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 20000          Weak: Light (+80%)         Strong: Dark (-80%)

 Drop: None

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

 This is definitely a difficult battle, but I may have gotten lucky; I beat
 Malpercio on my first try. I bet it was luck. Malpercio is nothing like the
 form that we just fought previously. He has all new attacks, and they suck
 even more than the last arsenal.

 Malpercio has a nine-hit combo that can deal almost 2000 damage. That's bad
 enough on his own, but he also has seven-hit combos ending with one of two
 incredibly obnoxious finishers.

 His first finisher is Dark Arrow, which will inflict every status effect in
 the game except Freeze and Headache. That is a major pain in the ass. If you
 have the Broken Ocean's Mirror, which has a 100% resistance to all status
 effects, use it on the seventh hit to come out clean. I happened to get it
 twice during the attack.

 One spell that seems to piss EVERYONE off (they have a good reason to be mad)
 is Seal of Entrophy. When Malpercio uses this (he'll probably use it twice or
 three times during the battle), he will change his element. That means he has
 all new strengths and weaknesses. 

 Look at the colors and effects when he uses it. Blue bubbles means he's Water
 and fire means he's well, Fire. Dark green circles means he's Chronos and
 light green rays means Malpercio is Wind. Black means he is Dark and of
 course, White light means he is Light. It's a major pain, since you'll pretty
 much have to change your whole battle strategy.

 Make sure to attack Malpercio with as much Light Magnus at the start of the
 battle before he uses Seal of Entrophy. Like the last fight, it is very much
 possible to deal up to 4000 damage in one combo. Pay attention to Spirit
 Numbers and use them to your advantage. Heal any and all characters who are
 at 2000 health or below, since that's the danger zone. Salted Sweetfish,
 Peanuts, and Avocados help here.

 Malpercio shows no signs of fatigue through the battle by his battle stance.
 The only real way to know if Malpercio is about to die is if he uses
 Enchanted Blade. Used at the end of a seven-hit combo, the attack will drain
 HP and add it to his own.

 Not only that, but Malpercio will use the attack on all three characters. You
 MUST block the attacks or it's possible for Malpercio to gain as much as 4000
 HP from that flurry of attacks. If you do block them all, then the attack
 will be rendered virtually useless.

 20000 HP is a hell of a lot of HP, so the battle will take a long time,
 especially if Malpercio keeps changing his damn element. You might have to
 shuffle your deck twice or even three times during the fight. The battle is
 hard, but you can do it, even after a couple tries. I know, I beat Malpercio
 on my first try, so that's possible as well. Either way, Malpercio is a very
 worthy "final boss".

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

This next couple of paragraphs are filled with spoilers, so read at your own 
risk. I will go into pretty good detail, so watch out.

                                    ---

Once the battle ends, Kalas will tell Mizuti to use a spell to bind Malpercio.
With that, he takes a leap of faith INTO Malpercio to help rescue Melodia from
the gut of the evil god. With that, you are given another flashback of Fee 
dying. Yep, that's about the sixth time we've seen this cutscene. But there's 
more. Melodia shows up after and it turns out that she was the one who
introduced Kalas to the Guardian Spirit. 

Kalas will keep asking Melodia to snap out of things, and she is finally 
pulled out of the belly of the beast. Melodia is finally back to normal, and 
she has blue hair! Weird. Kalas and Melodia restore the three ancient 
artifacts and use its power to finally destroy Malpercio.

Malpercio is eviscerated, and the leaders reach the rooftop. The White Dragon 
and a ship arrives and the group jumps on, leaving Cor Hydrae to be sucked 
into another dimension. Finally, the battle is over. But wait! The continents 
are all being pulled down; they are falling to the ground!

Just as they are about to plummet to the ground, the spirits of the five 
Sibling Gods catch each of the five continents. They freeze over, and the land 
of the skies become one with the Earth. 

Back in Komo Mai, the party and the leaders have a celebration feast. Kalas 
talks to each of the leaders and party members, learing about their futures. 

It's pretty funny; Lyude is asked to be the new leader of Alfard and Savyna 
decided to be a chef. Once the party wraps up, Kalas returns to Sadal Suud 
and meets up with Xelha in Moonguile Forest. They have a long talk with Kalas 
asking Xelha why she didn't tell him that she was the queen of Wazn. The 
conversation is cut off by a strange force and a familiar voice. Geldoblame?!

Yes, Geldoblame is back. In fact, he never left, since according to him, 
he "is the Earth". I don't know how it happened, but he is. His menacing face 
comes out of the ground and challenges the two to one final battle.

Yep, another fight. Don't worry, it's a joke. Keep attacking with Kalas and 
Xelha, ignoring the cards used. Wait until Kalas gets a Spirit Attack and use 
it. The battle will end immediately after, and Geldoblame will finally be 
ridden of the universe.

After that strange interruption, the two get back to their talk. Kalas asks 
Xelha why she is considered the "Last Ice Queen". After a shocking turn of 
events, Xelha proclaims that she IS the ocean. Xelha says the ocean is inside 
of her and asks Kalas and the Guardian Spirit to help remove it from here. 
Kalas refuses, knowing it will kill her. Xelha promises that she will never 
leave him. Still, he goes along with it and releases the ocean from Xelha.

As Xelha lay dying, she confesses to Kalas that she never gave up on him, 
because she was in love with him. She just wanted the two of them to be a 
couple for the whole time. After that, Xelha dies in Kalas's arms. And for 
the first time, it rains.

The rain continues for an everlasting time, until the land floods and an 
ocean is created. The ocean has finally appeared on the Earth. Not only that, 
but all the Greythornes of the world come unto one point, and they all merge 
to form...a whale. The whale falls into the ocean and begins its life. 

Kalas and the rest of the party meets up in the Shrine of the Spirits, also 
with many of the supporting cast. Not long after, two boys run over to Kalas 
and tell him that they found Xelha's pendant on the beach and that you can 
hear the ocean if you put your ear up to it. Kalas does so, and a surge of 
water pours out of the pendant.

The water forms into a being; none other than Xelha. She hugs Kalas and tells 
him that she promised never to leave him. The group rejoices and turns to the 
Guardian Spirit. The party thanks and says their final goodbye to the Guardian 
Spirit as the screen fades. 

And that wraps up Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean. I hope you 
enjoyed the game and my guide! Later folks!

 BOSS: Sabre Dragon
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 230           Weak: Water (+80%)          Strong: Fire (-80%)

 Drop: Blue Storm, Fire Burst Lvl. 1, Draco

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

 First off, the battle music for this fight is friggin' awesome. One of the 
 best in the game. That is all.

 Talk about easy bosses, right? Considering this is your first boss, have no
 worries. The Sabre Dragon is capable of dishing out three-hit combos, so 
 watch your health. Use your Bamboo Shoots when your HP is low, especially 
 Xelha, who has lower HP than Kalas. The nasty thing has a weakness to Water.
 Kalas may not have many Water Magnus in his deck, but that's why Xelha is 
 here. She has a slew of magic spells in her deck. That's another reason to
 keep her alive;she is the best offensive member in your party.

 Stray away from using Fire Burst and use combos (if possible) and Water
 attacks. Kalas can use normal attacks to take down the Sabre Dragon's HP just
 as quickly. You can also use Xelha's finisher if it comes up. If you have the
 chance, take a photo of Sabre Dragon, since it can rack in a nice amount of
 money if you can pull it off.

 You should have no problem defeating this monster, so relax and use it like a
 practice battle for other tougher battles in the future. After defeating the
 Sabre Dragon, you recieve Blue Storm (finisher for Kalas), Fire Burst Lvl. 1,
 and a Draco Constellation Magnus. Pretty good deal!

 BOSS: Lord of the Spring
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 300           Weak: Fire (+80%)           Strong: Water (-80%)

 Drop: Wild Strawberry, Scale Buckle

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

 The Lord of the Spring isn't that hard, but he is indeed harder than Sabre 
 Dragon. Make sure that you replaced the Water Magnus with Fire ones, because 
 Fire is his weakness. In the beginning of the battle, he will use small
 combos against you. They shouldn't be too dangerous though, so don't worry.

 When you start to damage the boss, then he will use a longer combo, and end
 it with an attack called Thundering Falls. It is a fairly strong attack, so
 use Bamboo Shoots when you get the chance. Also make sure to counter with
 your Fire Magnus.

 Use Kalas to deal neutral damage as well as attack with his new finisher,
 Blue Storm. Xelha should use all the Fire Magnus she has in her deck for 
 this battle. Her finisher also works wonders here. After damaging Lord of
 the Spring a lot, he will begin to use a new attack.

 His combos will finish with Dragon Press, an even stronger Water move that
 can really dish out the damage. Try to give him the finishing blow before he
 can use it again. Also, you may want to take a picture of him (as well as
 every boss you fight) to gain some cash. You will receive a Wild Strawberry
 and Scale Buckles for your troubles.

 BOSS: Nunkirantula
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 350           Weak: Fire (+50%), Dark/Wind (+30%)
                 Strong: Water (-50%), Light/Chrono (-30%)

 Drop: Duel Sword, Light Flare Lvl. 2

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

 The Nunkirantula is a pretty formidable opponent. It is mainly a Water-based 
 opponent, but it's weak against many things. You don't really have many Wind 
 or Dark Magnus, so stick to utilizing it's weakness to Fire. Plus, it has a 
 bigger weakness to Fire than other elements. Nunkirantula has a one-hit or a
 two-hit combo that is Water based, so use those Flame Mails.

 A VERY annoying attack that Nunkirantula uses is Hardening Wax. This attack
 greatly boosts its defense. This will render normal attacks pretty much
 useless, so definitely rack up combos and use any Fire Magnus. Make sure to
 use Blue Storm against Nunkirantula to deal a lot of damage. Also, bring
 along several Bamboo Shoots or Bananas to keep your HP up.

 Still, The Nunkirantula isn't really THAT hard; it is just really annoying.
 After you defeat it, you will get a Duel Sword and a Light Flare Lvl. 2 for
 your effort. Of course, you will also get what you came here for: The Rainbow
 Spider's Web.

 BOSS: Giacomo
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 750          Weak: Water/Light (+30%)          Strong: Fire/Dark (-30%)

 Drop: Sparkle of Light, Chronos Blow Lvl. 1

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

 First things first, this battle music is really weird. It's like reggae, but 
 it gets good later. (Yeah, I honestly needed to tell you that.)

 Just by looking at his health, you might think that Giacomo would be one 
 tough customer. Well, he kind of is. If you have a lot of Water and Light
 Magnus in your decks (mostly Xelha's deck), then wallop him with them. His
 attacks are very strong, so use any defensive Magnus when you get the chance.
 He uses a four-hit combo ending in a strong finisher, End Slasher. It is a
 Dark-based attack, so you can't really prevent it considering you don't have
 any Light armor. The combo can deal almost 100 HP; use them Bananas.
 
 Giacomo's HP is very high, but you should have no problem depleting it in a
 hurry. Kalas's new finisher won't be much help here, but Blue Storm should
 deal a lot of damage when used in a sufficient combo. Xelha should pummel
 Giacomo with Dance of Light to take a large chunk of HP off of him. When he
 has low HP, Giacomo will start to use End Slasher a lot more, so definitely
 keep your health up.

 Also, take a picture of Giacomo if you get the chance. It will be worth a lot
 of money. It's a somewhat long battle, but you should not be dying over and
 over if you have the right Magnus. After the battle, Giacomo will drop
 Sparkle of Light (new finisher for Xelha) and a Chronos Blow Lvl. 1.

 BOSS: Thunderfish
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 750          Weak: Fire/Dark (+50%)          Strong: Water/Light (-50%)

 Drop: Pisces, Energy Wave, Silver Anklet

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

 I'm sure you could have figured out long before the battle that any boss here
 would be Water-based. Hopefully you traded in Water Magnus for Fire and some
 Dark ones. Even though you now have three party members, Gibari won't be much
 of help here, unless he uses his Wind Magnus. Thunderfish has a four-hit 
 combo that ends with Thundercloud. You should be pretty strong by now, so the
 attack actually shouldn't be that bad. The Thunderfish can also use Venemous
 Droplets. It won't deal any damage, but it poisons one character.

 Luckily for us, the Thunderfish really isn't hard at all. Despite its large
 amount of HP, you should chop it away with strong Fire and Dark combos.
 Shadow Wings works wonders in this battle. By now you should have a lot of
 Flame Swords and Flame Shields, so Kalas should be putting on the pain to it.
 Xelha should also be dealing a lot of damage with Fire Burst Lvl. 2's.

 Like I said earlier, Gibari should not have much to do, so let him heal and
 take pictures. After killing the Thunderfish, you will be rewarded with
 Pisces, Energy Wave (yet another finisher for Kalas), and a Silver Anklet.

 BOSS: Iron Beetle I
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 1500         Weak: Water/Light (+30%)          Strong: Fire/Dark (-30%)

 Drop: Soul Flash, Shark Tooth

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

 The fight against the Iron Beetle I is the toughest one to date. Be prepared
 when you enter this fight, or you're screwed. This massive machine packs a
 MEAN punch. It not only have a five-hit combo, but its ending attack,
 Voldocannon, ends up dealing around 200 damage to your whole party! Defend
 like hell with Water and Light Magnus in order to deplete some of the damage
 dealt. The Iron Beetle I is slow, but it'll try to prevent that weakness by
 using Nitro Boost. This move raises its attack. Not good.

 Gibari is your main man in this battle, considering he has a ton of Water
 Magnus in his deck. Use all of his finishers in combos to deal a ton of
 damage to the Iron Beetle I. Have party members heal through the battle to
 try and prevent the opponent from finishing off anyone with Voldocannon.

 Despite its strong attacks, the Iron Beetle I still isn't good enough, and
 you can overcome it with a bit of attack power. After the battle, you will
 get Soul Flash (third finisher for Xelha) and Shark Tooth, which raises
 Gibari's class to a higher level.

 HP: 1700              Weak: Water (+40%) Light (+30%)
                     Strong: Fire (-40%) Dark (-30%)

 Drop: Crescent Buckle, Shadow Cornet

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

 I'd like to make a note: the battle music that plays during this boss is IMO
 the best music in the game. <3 Rumbling of the Earth. 

 Oh snap, what a turn of events. Kalas and Gibari are joined by the Imperial
 Ambassador Lyude for this battle. The Iron Beetle V is one tough (and big)
 cookie, and a boss isn't the perfect time to test out a new party member.
 Lyude is a Dark and Light based fighter, so he is really good during this
 fight. Use him to dish out the Light Magnus. This monstrous thing has a four-
 hit combo that ends with Plasma Cannon. It isn't that powerful of an attack
 though, which is a relief.

 Kalas most likely doesn't have that many Light or Water Magnus, so he should
 stick with Wind Magnus or no element at all. Gibari is a Water master, so
 have him attack with anything he has. Lyude, like I said earlier, has a mix
 of Light and Dark. Stray from the Dark Magnus and use his neutral and Light
 Magnus. He has two Light finishers to use against this boss too, so things
 should go pretty smoothly at first.

 After damaging the Iron Beetle V significantly, it will use a move called
 Self Repair. Unfortunately for you, this attack heals all 1700 of its HP.
 That pretty much means that the battle starts over. It can only use Self
 Repair once every deck shuffle, so make sure to act quickly before it can use
 it again.

 After healing itself, the Iron Beetle V will start to use a five-hit combo,
 which ends with Diving Drill. It is stronger than its previous attack, but
 Lyude has a good supply of healing Magnus. Continue to pound the Iron Beetle
 V with more combos and it should go down quite fast. Once you beat the Iron
 Beetle V, you'll receive a Crescent Buckle and a Shadow Cornet.

 BOSS: Lord of the Winds
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 1900          Weak: Chronos (+80%)        Strong: Wind (-80%)

 Drop: Coral Plant, Magic Pen

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

 Woo, that's quite a bit of HP there! If your party is around level 13 before
 entering the battle, then you should be good. Gibari is a big no-no for this
 fight, considering how he has a bunch of Wind Magnus. The Lord of the Winds
 is sadly, really easy. He can use a five hit combo and Miraculous Gale, which
 isn't good. The attack can sometimes put you to sleep.

 Slashing Winds is nowhere near as strong, but he uses this attack a lot more.
 His attacks can also poison you, but it should not be a problem. By now, you
 probably have enough Mineral Water Magnus to keep you from being poisoned
 constantly.

 Xelha should be pummeling this guy with all of her Chronos Blow Magnus. Lyude
 is a good choice, since Lord of the Winds doesn't have any weakness towards
 Light or Dark. Remember to not use Kalas's Wind finishers a lot. He doesn't
 have really any Chronos Magnus, so stick to anything else except Wind.
 Remember to heal if needed, and Xelha will most likely have this battle won
 in no time. Once you defeat Lord of the Winds, you will obtain Coral Plant
 (raises Kalas's class to level 4) and a Magic Pen Magnus.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Folon
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 2300              Weak: Water (+30%) Light (+50%)
                     Strong: Fire (-30%) Dark (-50%)

 Drop: Heartlight Candle, Devil Eupho

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

 Folon is a speedy little bugger, so keep your guard up. He has high agility
 and will go most likely before any of your party members. Be sure to keep
 Water and Light Magnus in your deck before fighting this goon. Lyude, Gibari,
 and Kalas should be your main team here. You should have gotten a bunch of
 Light Magnus in the libary, like Rays of Truths and such, so hopefully you
 put them in your deck.

 Folon has a nasty five-hit combo; sometimes he uses a move at the end called
 Chaotic Flames. It will deal a lot of damage if not protected, and it can set
 someone on fire. A party member on fire will lose HP over the turns, so use
 Fruity Gelatins if any are in your decks.

 Over the course of mutilating Folon with your arsenal of Light and Water
 Magnus, the fight will start to become a bit more difficult. He will begin to
 use a very annoying attack called Lethal Injection. The attack greatly boosts
 his attack and agility. Use any and all defense Magnus after Folon uses
 Lethal Injection.

 It'll wear off after a turn or two, so keep attacking in hope of defeating
 him before he can use it again. Folon's attacks cause almost three times more
 than normal when he uses Lethal Injection, so heal only when absolutely
 necessary and try to quickly finish him off. Once Folon finally bites the
 dust, you will get a Heartlight Candle (raises Lyude's class to level 4) and
 a Devil Eupho Magnus. Gnarly.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Tree Guardian, Tentacle x2
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Tree Guardian - HP: 2200               Weak: Fire (+50%) Dark (+20%)
                                      Strong: Water (-50%) Light (-20%)

 Tentacle      - HP: 500               Weak: Fire (+80%) Dark (+30%)
                                     Strong: Water (-80%) Light (-30%)

 Drop: Freezing Axe, Dancing Flames

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

 The Tree Guardian is accompanied in the fight by two lame Tentacles. I mean,
 they are nothing more than a nuisance. You can wipe out their measly 500 HP
 in two or three turns, so do so with both Tentacles. The Tree Guardian will
 revive them later in the battle (most likely), but simply destroy them again.

 The Tree Guardian isn't much of a threat either, to be honest. It has a
 simple combo that ends with Banishing Water. It is a weak attack, but it can
 paralyze you, so it is the only real problem in this battle.

 The Tree Guardian has a lot of HP, but I'm sure you realized even before the
 fight that you'd be fighting something weak against Fire. Anyone is good in
 your party (except Gibari, even though he has some Fire Magnus). I'd pick
 Savyna, Xelha, and Kalas. Disregard Savyna's Water Magnus and concentrate on
 attacking the Tree Guardian with her Fire Magnus.

 The battle against the Tree Guardian is a very simple one, but that seems
 reasonable considering the events that occur after the battle. Once you
 defeat the Tree Guardian, you will get a Freezing Axe Magnus (a finisher for
 Savyna) and Dancing Flames (yet another finisher for Xelha).


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Savyna
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 3300         Weak: None          Strong: None

 Drop: None

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

 Wow, you didn't expect this, did you? You won't have a chance to heal after
 the battle with the Tree Guardian, so immediately do so. Also, if Savyna was
 in your party in the previous battle, she will of course be replaced (I got
 Gibari).

 If you have been using Savyna, you should realize that she's a quick fighter.
 She will most likely get the first attack. Don't worry though, she is really
 weak. Savyna has a six hit combo that ends with Burning Arrow. Like I said,
 it's a weak attack, but it is capable of causing flames.

 Savyna has no elemental strengths or weaknesses, so go ahead and use pretty
 much any element you want (of course, don't use opposing elements in the same
 combo). You will most likely cut her health down quickly because of this.
 Savyna uses an attack called Healing Capsule near the end of the fight.

 It heals her of 330 HP, but that's really nothing that you can't handle in 
 one turn. Also, TAKE A PICTURE OF SAVYNA! It is a one-time shot of her that
 will nab you a lot of cash. You don't get any spoils for defeating Savyna.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Gnosis
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 3600              Weak: None
                     Strong: Dark (-100%) Fire/Water (-50%) 
                             Light/Wind/Chrono (-50%)

 Drop: Ancient Branch, Brave Knight Helm, Andromeda

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

 The biggest pain about Gnosis is that he is strong against all Magnus
 elements, especially Dark. Don't bother using any Dark Flares or Magnus of
 the sort, since it deals no damage. All other damage from elements are
 halved. Gnosis has an attack called Dark Force which will paralyze a party
 member when hit with it. He will use this move frequently, so make sure to
 keep track of paralyzed member's HP, so it doesn't dwindle down too fast.
 Other than that attack, Gnosis's other moves are pretty tame.

 Definitely skip over Xelha and Lyude in this battle. I went with Kalas,
 Savyna, and Gibari and did fairly well against Gnosis. Try to stray from
 elemental Magnus, though I'm aware that it's pretty hard to do, especially
 with Savyna and Gibari.

 The plan is to use mostly physical attacks with neutral Magnus so that the
 damage delivered to Gnosis isn't cut down by elemental strengths. The battle
 is pretty tough, especially if your characters get paralyzed left and right.
 After defeating Gnosis, you will receive the Ancient Branch (raises Kalas's
 class to level 5), Brave Knight Helm, and an Andromeda Constellation Magnus.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Magnus Giganticus
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 4000              Weak: None              Strong: All (-50%)

 Drop: Emerald Earrings, Gleaming Helm

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

 Despite fighting a giant Magnus (which doesn't seem too threating at all),
 the battle can be pretty challenging. Like Gnosis, Magnus Giganticus is
 resistant to all elements. That means all elemental attacks will be cut in
 half. Lyude or Savyna fits the third spot, but it's your choice since Magnus
 Giganticus doesn't have as high of a resistance to Dark, like what Gnosis
 had. I still went with Savyna though, but it's up to you.

 Well, another similarity to Gnosis, Magnus Giganticus can and will paralyze
 your party members with Chronos Cage. It also uses an attack called Dark
 Surge, which inflicts Dark and Chronos damage, and it hurts. Like the fight
 with Gnosis, stick mostly with neutral Magnus and physical attacks. You can
 still attack with elemental Magnus in the fight, but I can't say that it's
 exactly the most surefire way of defeating the boss quickly.

 Magnus Giganticus will begin to fall apart after inflicting enough damage on
 it, so you can kind of keep track of the battle. For example, you know the
 battle is almost over when there's nothing but a sliver of Magnus in front of
 you. All in all, the battle against Magnus Giganticus is a beefed-up version
 of the Gnosis fight. Once the evil Magnus bites the dust, you will obtain the
 Emerald Earrings (armor for Lyude) and Gleaming Helm.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sikri
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 3000              Weak: Dark (+80%) Wind (+50%)
                     Strong: Light (-80%) Chrono (-50%)

 Drop: Golden Buckle, Dark Embrace, Virgo

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

 Well, luckily we have a very easy fight on our hands. Unlike the two previous
 bosses, Sikri is actually weak against two elements. That means that Xelha is
 just dandy for this battle. I went with her, Kalas, and Gibari. Lyude works
 just as well, so it's a tossup between the two. Sikri uses a combo ending
 with Unholy Symbol, which not only deals a somewhat large amount of damage,
 but can also paralyze. Why do these bosses paralyze everyone all of a sudden?

 As for a level, you will be fine if you're around level 21. Kalas should be
 able to tear this monster apart with all of his Wind Magnus in his deck.
 Xelha should be packed with Dark and Wind Magnus, and Gibari can fare for
 himself with his Wind Magnus.

 Near the end of the battle, Sikri will begin to use Life Drain. He will drain
 around 250 HP from a party member and add it to its own health. Yawn. Even
 that isn't a big threat to you now. Despite that (lame) trick up its sleeve,
 Sikri should succumb to your power in a hurry. You will earn a Golden Buckle,
 Dark Embrace (a finisher for Xelha) and the Virgo Constellation Magnus.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Phantasm
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 3000              Weak: Dark (+80%) Wind (+50%)
                     Strong: Light (-80%) Chrono (-50%)

 Drop: Pinecone, Vanish Grenade, Capricornus

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

 Phantasm is your usual guardian boss, but he is an easy one at that. He, like
 Sikri, is weak against Dark and Wind; strong against Light and Chrono. The
 boss uses a fairly weak and small combo, ending with Eyes of Terror. It deals
 mostly neutral-based damage, but it deals some Chronos-based damage as well.

 It really isn't anything to worry about, honestly. I went with Kalas, Lyude,
 and Mizuti this time (I wanted to try Mizuti out, and she did just fine). I
 suggest you do the same with her, since she rocks. Just give Mizuti some of
 Xelha's stronger Magnus and she will hold her ground.

 Other than that one attack, Phantasm is a joke. Eyes of Terror can put you to
 sleep, but don't count on it. If anyone happens to die, you can try out
 Mizuti's healing Magnus. Sacred Wine can cure Death, and Holy Grail has a 66%
 chance of curing Death. They are extremely useful later in the game.

 Okay, back to Phantasm. Uh, he is a really big pushover. Kalas will maul him,
 and Lyude can also deal a lot of damage to the monster. Well, Phantasm will
 fall before you know it. After that sad attempt at a battle, you will obtain
 a Vanish Grenade (finisher for Savyna), Pinecone (raises Mizuti's class to
 level 4), and a Capricornus Constellation Magnus. That's a damn good deal.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Giacomo, Ayme, Folon
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Giacomo - HP: 3800               Weak: Water (+50%) Light (+30%)
                                Strong: Fire (-50%) Dark (-30%)

 Ayme    - HP: 2400               Weak: Chrono (+50%) Light, Fire (+30%)
                                Strong: Wind (-50%) Dark, Water (-30%)

 Folon   - HP: 2700               Weak: Light (+50%) Water (+30%)
                                Strong: Dark (-50%) Fire (-30%)

 Drop: Hermit's Creel, Rarebird Statue

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

 Holy guacamole, are you ready for one hell of a fight? I really hope you're
 prepared, since you'll most likely be here for a while. Okay, Giacomo has the
 most health of the trio, and he attacks twice. Despite that, it is best to
 leave him for last. Folon is still his same ol' self, but he is the most
 deadly member of the evil gang.

 Still, I find it best to target Ayme first. She has the lowest HP of the
 three, and she is fairly weak. It's best to cut her down quickly to make this
 a two-on-three match. This is how I won the battle, so you might want to pay
 attention here.

 This is your first battle with Ayme, so make sure to take a picture of her.
 That's not the most important of things, but use your Camera Magnus if you
 get it. Ayme has a nine-hit combo ending with Crazy Rabbit. Yes, NINE-HIT
 COMBO. Surprisingly, it won't do that much damage to you. In fact, Ayme is
 really weak (she is the fastest one of the three though).

 Use Chrono Magnus against her (Mizuti has a Chronos-based finisher, Heaven's
 Pillar; use it) and some Light or Fire Magnus. Like I said, Ayme should bite
 the dust rather quickly if you use massive combos on her.

 With Ayme out of the picture, focus on Folon for the time being. He has very
 dangerous attacks, like Energy Injection from the last fight with him. It
 drastically increases his Attack and Agility; that is NEVER good. Folon's
 attacks, when powered up, can set you on fire. Heal any characters that are
 put on fire immediately. Of course, the little creep has a new trick up his
 sleeve: Warg Laser. It deals Dark and Chronos damage, so make sure to block
 it, because it kills.

 Damage Folon with your Light and Water Magnus. Lyude should use all of his 
 finishers on Folon, since his deck will most likely be shuffled when Giacomo
 is the only one left. Have Kalas and Mizuti use Water Magnus to attack. This
 is the point where your characters may be starting to wear down. Make sure to
 keep an eye on all three members' HP: when it goes below 1000, try to use
 healing Magnus. Folon is a very powerful and deadly foe, so take him out
 quickly to narrow it down to only one opponent left: Giacomo.

 With the big man standing alone, you would expect things to go rather
 smoothly. Well, not exactly. Every time I died in the battle, it was when
 Giacomo was the only foe standing. By now, your deck count is probably very
 low, so you may be stuck with some useless Magnus. This alone can kill you,
 so make sure to block all of Giacomo's attacks with only armor Magnus, not
 weapons. 

 Use all of your offensive Magnus on Giacomo, especially Light and Water
 Magnus. Mizuti can use Sacred Wine and Holy Grails to revive and fallen
 characters now, if you have them. This part is at times, the toughest part of
 the battle (well for me it was).

 Once the deck has shuffled for all three characters, it's much easier for
 everyone. Giacomo will use two finishers in the fight: Imperial Force and End
 Slasher. We saw the latter in the first fight with him, but Imperial Force is
 much deadlier. It deals way more damage than End Slasher, so those two moves
 that Giacomo has can really be the turning point of the battle. Still, stick
 with it and use Light/Water Magnus to finish him off.

 This battle is known as the toughest boss battle in Baten Kaitos. I was level
 25 when I fought these guys. I followed the same tactic: eliminate Ayme
 first, then finish off Folon. Leave Giacomo last, even though he has the most
 HP. In all honesty, I didn't think the fight was that hard. I don't mean to
 brag, but I beat it on my second try. After the battle is over, you will get
 Hermit's Creel (some armor for Gibari) and Rarebird Statue (raises Xelha's
 class to level 5). Nice!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Geldoblame
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 5500              Weak: Light (+80%) Water (+20%) Wind (+30%)
                     Strong: Dark (-80%) Fire (-20%) Chrono (-30%)

 Drop: Shadow Gate, Powder Snow Anklet 

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

 Yeah, I said it. Geldoblame is tougher than the trio of Giacomo, Ayme, and
 Folon. You wanna know why? The main reason why is simply because Geldoblame
 is a cheap bastard. He has one attack, Forfeit Your Life, which well, kills
 you in one hit. Yes, it is a big pain in the ass.

 The only problem is that Geldoblame uses the attack at the start of the
 battle. I faced him over 20 times, and EVERY single time he used Forfeit Your
 Life on his first turn. That means that unless your party member ends up
 having some Death-resistant armor in his hand and ends up surviving, then
 you're basically screwed.

 What I did was pack all three party members with armor like Shadow Suits and
 Assassin's Hoods. Their Death resistance can sometimes help against the
 attack. If not, then continue on with the battle with two characters. Use
 Holy Grails and Sacred Wines immediately on downed party members so you don't
 stay at a disadvantage.

 With that aside, Geldoblame is still one tough mofo. He uses a five-hit
 combo, ending with one of three finishers (Forfeit Your Life being one of
 them; he uses the attack rarely after the first time). Seal of Evil is his
 most deadly, dealing well over 500 damage each turn if unprotected. Poisonous
 Pollen deals less damage, but it can poison a character. On top of all of
 this, Geldoblame will use an extra turn to use Divine Seal, which restores
 his HP by 110. He uses it nearly every turn. Man I hate this guy.

 Once you get past all of the attacks, you have to deal with his high HP
 count. 5500 is a LOT, but his massive weakness towards Light is his real
 downfall. Pound Geldoblame will Light Magnus, and use Gibari to attack with
 Water Magnus. Geldoblame is friggin' tough, especially if he uses Forfeit
 Your Life again. I ended up beating him with only Kalas left alive.

 If you're down to one character, don't give up! After defeating Geldoblame,
 you will get Shadow Gate (finisher for Mizuti) and Powder Snow Anklet (armor
 for Xelha). It's over! Yes!! *pumps fists*


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Naiad
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 1400              Weak: Light (+50%) Water (+30%)
                     Strong: Dark (-50%) Fire (-30%)

 Drop: Goldfish Bowl, Spiraling Gale, Ophiuchus

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

 Wow, this is a really pathetic boss fight, if you couldn't tell from the
 measly HP count. Even though it's a one-on-one fight, you should really fly
 through it. If you have a Camera with you, wait until you can take a picture
 of Naiad. The picture isn't worth a lot, but if you're a collector, then do
 so. I believe Naiad only has one attack; a very pathetic one-hit attack that
 deals less than 100 damage. Heh, this guy is a mess.

 Pelt the boss with anything you've got; any Magnus will do. It's weak against
 Light and Water. If you have a lot of Light Flares and Aqua Bursts, you can
 probably kill Naiad in two or three turns. After the short battle, you will
 get a Goldfish Bowl (armor for Xelha), Spiraling Gale (finisher for Gibari),
 and Ophiuchus Constellation Magnus. That's a lot of stuff for such an easy
 battle. ;)


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Thalassa
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 2300              Weak: Light (+50%) Fire (+30%)
                     Strong: Dark (-50%) Water (-30%)

 Drop: Golden Barette, Hurricane Blade, Cancer

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

 Thalassa is yet another easy centaur boss. This boss is weak against Fire,
 just the opposite of the last boss from Diadem. Thalassa has a finisher, as
 well as a several-hit combo (ending with Tears of Destruction) to deal with.
 His attacks can freeze your party members, so cure if needed. Other than
 that, you don't have to worry about anything.

 Attack with more Light Magnus, since he is also weak against Light. Thalassa
 is also weak against Fire Magnus. I know Gibari doesn't have any Fire Magnus,
 so try to avoid his Water Magnus and stick with Wind. Even though Thalassa
 has a lot more HP than Naiad, it's still borderline pathetic. Once Thalassa
 is defeated, you will obtain a Golden Barette (armor for Savyna), Hurricane
 Blade (new finisher for Savyna) and a Cancer Constellation Magnus.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Despina
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 3700              Weak: Light (+50%) Wind (+30%)
                     Strong: Dark (-50%) Chrono (-30%)

 Drop: Tearful Birdie, Mega Flood, Lyra

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

 Unlike the other bosses that we had to breeze through, Despina may give you
 some trouble. He has a lot more HP to cut through, and he uses another long
 combo. Despina will also use a deadly attack: Hours of Reckoning. While it is
 rarely used, it can instantly kill a character. Yeah, the nightmares of
 Geldoblame are already resurfacing. Hopefully one of your party members has
 some Sacred Wines and Holy Grails, so you should be fine.

 This boss is weak against, Wind, and you should have enough Magnus despite
 Kalas being absent. Pummel the boss with all Magnus and like the others, he
 should go down quickly. The only thing to worry about is the Hours or
 Reckoning Spell. Once Despina is gone, you will get the Tearful Birdie (armor
 for Mizuti), Mega Flood (finisher for Mizuti), and a Lyra Constellation
 Magnus.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Galatea
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 5600              Weak: Light (+50%) Chrono (+30%)
                     Strong: Dark (-50%) Wind (-30%)

 Drop: Amethyst Earrings, Crescendo, Libra

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

 Well, Galatea does have a lot of HP, even more than Geldoblame. Even though,
 don't expect much of a fight from Galatea. Luckily, we won't have to deal
 with an instant-death spell like our last fight. Galatea also has a big
 combo, ending with Heart of the Maelstrom. It can deal a lot of Wind damage,
 so be careful of his attacks. Don't get too cocky, because Galatea isn't as
 much of a pushover like the others.

 I went with Xelha, Mizuti, and Gibari again for this fight. Savyna isn't
 really anything special. Once again, exploit Galatea's weakness for Light
 Magnus by using all of Xelha's Light finishers and other party members' Light
 Magnus. You can stick with Chronos Magnus as well. Galatea is the hardest out
 of the four bosses, but you should not have much trouble with him. Once you
 defeat Galatea, you will get Anethyst Earrings (armor for Lyude), Crescendo
 (finisher for Lyude), and the Libra Constellation Magnus.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Fadroh
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 7000              Weak: Light (+30%) Wind (+80%)
                     Strong: Dark (-30%) Chrono (-80%)

 Drop: Camera 3, Freezing Axe

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

 We haven't fought a boss in a long time, right? Well Fadroh here is going to
 fill the gap quite nicely. At first, Fadroh may seem like a pushover. His
 five-hit combo, ending with either Corrupting Light or Unholy Light, will
 deal less than 500 damage. I can get used to that. His two finishers deal
 Dark and Chronos damage, so block with proper Magnus. Your combos should deal
 over 500 damage to Fadroh. 

 Not long after the battle starts, Fadroh will use a devastating move called
 Orb of Magical Offense. The spell drastically increases his Attack. Now his
 combos will be dealing over 1000 damage, even if you block them! Needless to
 say, the battle becomes much more difficult.

 After Fadroh powers himself up, the battle is a lot harder. His 7000 HP is
 still easy to cut through, so keep using combos. His massive weakness to Wind
 should ultimately be his downfall. I used Gibari, Xelha, and Lyude in this
 battle. All of the characters should have enough Magnus to suit his elemental
 weaknesses.

 Your characters may die near the end, but use Sacred Wines if you get any in
 your hand. Fadroh is pretty tough, but you should still overcome him on your
 first try. You will get Camera 3 and Freezing Axe (finisher for Savyna) at
 the end of the battle with Fadroh.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Kalas: Angel of Darkness
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 9000              Weak: Light (+80%) Chrono (+40%)
                     Strong: Dark (-80%) Wind (-40%)

 Drop: None

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

 You know what? We have a winner here. Kalas is the hardest boss in the game
 so far. Congrats kid. It should be pretty obvious that Kalas is weak against
 Chronos, but he's also weak against Light. You know, since he's all evil and
 stuff. Kalas has an obnoxiously large amount of HP, a lot more than Fadroh.

 He also has two very deadly finishers. Not only that, but he uses them after
 an eight-hit combo. After, he will either use Binding Winds or Fangs of
 Darkness. Binding Winds most likely will paralyze whomever it is used on,
 unless they use a form of resistance. Fangs of Darkness will drain your HP
 and restore his own. Unblocked, it will drain 596 HP from you and give it to
 him. Unfortunately, Kalas uses Fangs of Darkness a lot. 

 If you do not have Paralysis-resistant armor or Magnus in general, then you
 are done for. For now, Kalas will only use one attack per turn; either a
 seven-hit combo or an eight-hit combo ending with the deadly Binding Winds.
 He usually saves Fangs of Darkness for the end of the battle. I went with
 Mizuti, Gibari, and Lyude. I only chose Mizuti instead of Xelha because her
 stats were higher. You can choose either one, since both have finishers that
 Kalas is weak against.

 Lyude should have a lot of Light Magnus with him, as well as some Light
 finishers. I only picked Gibari over Savyna because he was the more powerful
 of the two. He has a lot of Wind Magnus, but that is alright. The beginning
 of the fight may seem rather easy. Attack him with everything you have,
 especially Chronos Blows and Light Flares. Things should go rather smoothly
 for a large portion of the fight.

 When Kalas has less than half of his HP left, the battle will become a royal
 pain in the behind. Kalas will start to attack twice in a row. What's even
 deadlier about it is that he uses Binding Winds in the first attack, then
 uses Fangs of Darkness. That means if your character gets paralyzed, then he
 will use Fangs of Darkness on you unblocked.

 Kalas will end up not only dealing a lot of damage from the first attack, but
 also drains 596 HP from you, giving it to him. This strategy makes the battle
 virtually never-ending if your party members keep getting paralyzed.

 Pretty Flowers, Roosters, Curry, and the Ocean Mirror really helps. The key
 to winning is to have your characters stay unparalyzed. Then you can block
 Kalas's second attack, and the HP drained will be much lower. Revive your
 characters with Sacred Wines and Holy Grails, and be sure to cure paralysis
 immediately. Attack Kalas for more damage than he gains, and the battle
 should end after a long time of fighting. On top of that difficult battle,
 you don't even get anything!

 BOSS: Agyo, Ungyo
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Agyo  -  HP: 7000          Weak: Water (+80%)        Strong: Fire (-80%)

 Ungyo -  HP: 7000          Weak: Fire (+80%)        Strong: Water (-80%)

 Drop: Gemini, Prominence, Poseidon's Creel

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

 See? This is why Savyna REALLY works in this battle. Agyo and Ungyo are two
 elemental dogs which both share opposite strengths and weaknesses. Agyo is
 the fire dog; weak against Water. Ungyo is the Water one; he's weak against
 Fire. As shown, both of these guys have 7000 HP, which is a doozy in itself.
 Both Agyo and Ungyo have seven-hit combos. Agyo's finisher is Pillar of
 Flames, which can set you on fire. Ungyo uses Column on Ice, which can freeze
 you. Both dogs can deal around 600-700 damage with these attacks.

 Also both foes have a move that boosts their stats. Agyo can raise his
 Attack, whereas Ungyo boosts his Defense. With that said, take out Agyo
 first. With boosted Attack, his combo can deal around 1200 damage or more.

 Mizuti should be fine with her Aqua Bursts and Savyna can use her Water
 Magnus to deal a nice amount of damage to Agyo. It is pretty easy to rack up
 nearly 1000 damage if you have the right cards. Make sure to use healing
 Magnus and any Sacred Wines, because seeing your party members die isn't very
 rare in this battle.

 You should be able to take down Agyo without any serious trouble. Revive any
 characters and make sure to cure them of Freeze, because having them frozen
 is a real bummer. The battle is even easier if Agyo is hesitant to use his
 Attack-boosting spell (for whatever reason that may be). With Agyo out of the
 picture, it's a three-on-one assault on poor Ungyo. His raised Defense will
 make the battle longer, but you should have little to no trouble disposing of
 Ungyo, especially with all the Fire Magnus in your decks. 

 I had a lot of trouble with this battle, but that's probably because my
 Savyna... royally sucks. After the fight, you will receive the Gemini
 Constellation Magnus, Prominence (finisher for Mizuti) and Poseidon's Creel
 (armor for Gibari).


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Malpercio
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 10000              Weak: Light (+80%) Chrono (+30%) Water (+20%)
                      Strong: Dark (-80%) Wind (-30%) Fire (-20%)

 Drop: None

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

 You'd think that the main antagonist of the game, an evil god bent on nothing
 but destruction and the pain of others, would be somewhat difficult in
 battle. Well... no. Despite a high HP count, Malpercio is a cinch. Hey, that
 is fine with me. Malpercio has a 6-hit combo that really isn't much to worry
 about. He has no finisher, but does use a move near the end of the battle
 which proves to be quite annoying.

 Also, this fight is a good opportunity to take a picture of Mizuti. Since her
 mask is broken and her face is revealed, a shot of her is really valuable. If
 you're lucky, you can get a picture of her smiling, which is worth a lot of
 cash. I was fortunate enough to get one, and I sold it for a heap. 

 You can really take Malpercio down a notch or two if you use Light, Water,
 and Chronos Magnus. You should be dealing a lot of damage to him, and if
 Kalas has the Sword of Heavens in his deck, that'll be good as well. Once
 Malpercio is on one knee, he will begin to use Soul Drain. Similar to the
 battle with Kalas, Malpercio will attack, then drain your HP equal to the
 damage delivered. 

 He probably won't even reach 1000 damage, so that means he will only heal for
 less than 1000 HP. While that may seem like a lot, you should be dealing
 almost that much with each character. If you're at least level 40, then the
 fight should be a breeze. Sadly, you don't get any Magnus afterwards.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Giacomo, Ayme, Folon
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 Giacomo - HP: 7000               Weak: Water (+50%) Light (+30%)
                                Strong: Fire (-50%) Dark (-30%)

 Ayme    - HP: 5000               Weak:Chrono, Light, Fire (+30%)
                                Strong: Wind (-50%) Dark, Water (-30%)

 Folon   - HP: 5500               Weak: Light (+50%) Water, Wind (+30%)
                                Strong: Dark (-50%) Fire, Chrono (-30%)

 Drop: Chaotic Illusion

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

 Surprised to see these goons again? Well I wasn't, and I wanted to cry. The
 battle against the terrible trio is more or less the same as the previous
 fight with them. All three members' HP have risen dramatically, and they are
 all weak against the same Magnus. The team will also heal themselves in the
 battle, which is a big pain. 

 Giacomo still attacks twice in one turn. Folon still uses Energy Injection to
 boost his Attack, but now Ayme will use Rough 'Em Up Drink on herself, which
 will raise her Defense. Bitch. And of course, all members use potions to heal
 each other, usually for around 1000 HP. Oh sweet joy, I love this fight.

 Instead of targeting Ayme first like last time, go for the big man Giacomo.
 He can attack twice, and if he happens to use a potion both turns, he can
 heal an ally of his for 2000 HP. We can't have that be happenin' through the
 fight. He also has the most HP of them all, so we're tackling the biggest
 problem first. Giacomo still uses Imperial Force and End Slasher. What I've
 noticed though is that Giacomo is actually the weakest of the trio.

 Pound Giacomo with Kalas, Gibari, and Mizuti; use any Light or Water Magnus
 you can find. With me, Giacomo fell in a rather short period of time; I was
 pretty surprised myself. Ayme will try to heal him when he is down to low
 health, but that shouldn't stop you.

 Once big bad Giacomo is down for the count, the battle gets significantly
 easier. Go for Ayme next, since her nine-hit combo is a pain. She is most
 likely the reason why you have to shuffle your deck so early and constantly.

 Ayme also uses a finisher which can freeze you. She does have the lowest HP
 count, so hit with Light, Fire, and Chronos Magnus to put her away quickly.

 With only Folon left, the battle is virtually a joke. He still uses Chaotic
 Flames and Worg Laser, but he's no match for three opponents (assuming that
 no one died). Gibari alone could take him down with all of his Water and
 Light Magnus. Folon should be out in no time. Battle over! Or is it...?

 Okay, here's the real sucky part. After the battle ends, you will see a small
 cutscene. Nothing major, Giacomo just trash talks Kalas and breaks his wing.
 All of a sudden, the mantlepiece breaks to reveal another winglet inside!
 Georg's gift? Kalas puts it on and the fight starts over again! Yep, you have
 to fight all three enemies again.

 Of course, your party is healed and fully shuffled, but it still sucks big
 time. Well, if you can beat them once, you can beat 'em again! Once the
 battle ends (again), you will receive the Chaotic Illusion Magnus (a finisher
 for Kalas). I promise, that's the last time you have to fight these guys!


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Kulcabaran
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 10000         Weak: Wind (+80%)           Strong: Chrono (-80%)

 Drop: Galeos Fangs, Aqua Burst Lvl. 6, Seal of Water

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

 Kulcabaran is a big phony. A big, fat phony! In all seriousness, I figured
 these character sidequests would test the strength of the party as well as
 the featured character. Well, no. Kulcabaran is just a stupid Sabre Dragon
 impersonator, and he's about as easy as said boss. He will use a five-hit
 combo for most of the battle. He only has one weakness, but it's a serious
 one. Use Kalas and Gibari to destroy him with Wind Magnus, and I'm sure Xelha
 can use some Wind Blows to take out a lot of damage.

 The fact that you are probably dealing over 1000 damage with each hit is
 pretty impressive. Near the end of the battle, when Kulcabaran is wearing
 down, he will begin to use Dark Implosion. Not only will it deal a lot of
 Chronos damage, but he will absorb all damage dealt to you. Still, that
 should only be around 500-600 damage, so no biggie. 

 Don't expect much out of Kulcabaran, because you will be seriously brought
 down if you do. Once the dragon is done for, you will get an Aqua Burst Lvl.
 6, Galeos Fangs, and Seal of Water (finisher for Xelha). Nice spoils if you
 ask me, considering the boss was about as cool as a steaming turd.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Brokolis
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 13000         Weak: Fire (+80%)           Strong: Water (-80%)

 Drop: Dragoon Gale, Balgora's Paddle, Nemesis Fall

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

 Brolokis has the highest amount of HP so far, but surprisingly, he is not as
 tough as you'd think. Gibari must be in your party for this one, and I went
 with Kalas and Mizuti. Savyna could substitute out Mizuti if she's good
 enough. Brolokis has a decent attack.

 The most annoying part about the battle is Venomous Droplets. Brolokis, like
 the Thunderfish earlier, will use Venomous Droplets, this time on two
 characters. That's an instant poison spell, which can be a pain in the butt.
 Brolokis also uses a six-hit combo ending in Frost Cloud. The latter can
 freeze your party members, so watch out for that one, mmkay?

 Frost Cloud doesn't deal that much damage and doesn't usually freeze a
 character. The big fish can deal around 1000 damage if you're not careful.
 Use Mineral Waters and healing Magnus to protect your party.

 The battle might take a long time because of the high HP, but your party
 should have enough Fire Magnus to give this guy a run for his money. With the
 80% weakness against it, attacking him with Fire Magnus is the key to
 winning. The fight against Brolokis is fairly long, but not very hard.

 After defeating Brolokis, you will earn a Dragoon Gale, Balgora's Paddle, and
 Nemesis Fall (new finisher for Gibari). Can't complain about those, right?


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Rampulus
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 13000              Weak: Light (+80%) Wind (+50%)
                      Strong: Dark (-80%) Chrono (-50%)

 Drop: Apple Pie (Whole), Vishnu, Presto

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

 Rampulus is by far the most annoying sidequest boss that I have had to deal
 with. Having HP as high as Brolokis, Rampulus is weak against two elements.
 Rampulus only has a four-hit combo, ending in Symbol of Slumber. This attack
 usually puts a party member to sleep.

 While that is annoying on it's own, Rampulus also uses a spell to increase
 its Defense. He uses it often, so you really never get a chance to deal a lot
 of damage to him. Because of this, the battle tends to be pretty long at
 times, especially if your characters are all asleep. =/

 Its weakness to both Light and Wind is very important, so Kalas and Lyude
 should have a field day here. The battle gets annoying again when Rampulus
 starts to use Death Count. It's a one-hit KO attack, so that's bad enough on
 its own. Luckily, it doesn't hit often. In fact, I was never hit by it.

 The key to beating Rampulus is to deal a lot of damage quickly so your
 characters aren't put asleep or killed in a flash. That's tricky because of
 his increased Defense though. It may take a while, but the Rampulus will fall
 at your test of might. You get an Apple Pie (Whole), Vishnu, and Presto
 (finisher for Lyude) at the conclusion of the battle.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sowzana
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 12000         Weak: Water (+80%)           Strong: Fire (-80%)

 Drop: Green Light, Phoenix Crest, Hellblood's Hammer

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

 It's like we are fighting Fadroh all over again! Sowzana looks just like the
 evil general, and luckily he is just as easy. Just like the fight with
 Rampulus, this one will be quite long. Just as Fadroh used Orb of Magical
 Offense, Sowzana will use the opposite: Orb of Magical Defense.

 This spell raises his Defense dramatically, making it very hard to put a dent
 into his HP. He also uses a six-hit combo, ending in either Evil Vermin or
 Hyper Wicked Light. Both are pretty fearsome attacks, causing over 800-900
 damage at the end.

 My Savyna still sucked eggs up at this point, so this battle was very 
 annoying and somewhat hard. Just like how Brolokis poisoned us and Rampulus
 put us to sleep, Sowzana can paralyze us. The joys of status effects. His
 main weakness is Water, so use Kalas, Savyna, and Gibari for this encounter.

 Make sure to heal characters' HP using goodies such as Eels and Salted
 Sweetfish. Sowzana's Defense will most likely be boosted through the whole
 battle, so try and cut him down with Water Magnus. Once Sowzana is defeated,
 you will earn a Green Light, Phoenix Crest, and Hellblood's Hammer (finisher
 for Savyna). 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sibling God He
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 14000          Weak: Dark (+100%)         Strong: Light (-100%)

 Drop: Wheel of Light

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

 He is pretty easy for your first Sibling God. In fact, they're all somewhat
 simple fights. The fact that Lyude is in your party should totally bring He
 to his knees. He is weak to Dark Magnus (with a very BIG weakness at that)
 and Lyude has plenty of 'em in his deck. He is capable of dishing out a seven
 -hit combo, ending with Flash Bang, which is very a powerful move. He will
 also use Seal of Sanity, which can confuse a party member in an instant.

 Like I said, Lyude will be your main man in this battle. Mizuti has a nice
 amount of Dark Flares, and Kalas might have a couple Dark Magnus in his deck.
 Lyude has plenty of Dark finishers, such as Diminuendo and Sforzando. You
 will most likely be dealing over 1000 damage each turn with your party
 members.

 Near the end of the fight, He will use Seal of Health, which restores his
 health by 2100. Still, it doesn't do much good with your all-out assault. He
 should fall in no time. Once the battle ends, you will get Xelha's final
 finisher, Wheel of Light. In fact, the Sibling Gods drop all of your final
 finishers after you kill them.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sibling God Ar
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 14000          Weak: Water (+100%)         Strong: Fire (-100%)

 Drop: Deadly Heat Scythe

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

 Sibling God Ar is just like He, but he has a major weakness to Water. He
 should be a hell of a lot easier than the previous god, mostly because of
 Savyna. My Savyna sucked, but regardless, she kicked major ass here. She
 should have plenty of Water Magnus, as well as Gibari and Kalas. Yep, I
 switched out Mizuti for Gibari. Seems reasonable.

 Ar has a seven-hit combo ending with Firebird, which can put a party member
 on fire. Like all of the other gods, he can use Seal of Sanity and Seal of
 Health. He doesn't use the latter until the end of the battle, so that is a
 pretty big plus.

 Savyna and Gibari will decimate Ar alone, and Kalas should also take out a
 lot of HP with his Aqua Truths and Water Blade finisher. You should still
 keep an eye on your character's health, since Ar can deal a lot of damage
 with his attacks. Once Ar uses Seal of Health, you know it's almost over.
 Deliver the finishing blows and he will be gone in no time. Once Ar is
 defeated, you will earn Savyna's last finisher, Deadly Heat Scythe.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sibling God Che
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 14000          Weak: Wind (+100%)         Strong: Chrono (-100%)

 Drop: Ultimate Geyser

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

 Like Ar, Sibling God Che is another pushover. Gibari and Kalas alone can take
 him out, and Mizuti should do just as well. Che is weak to Wind Magnus,
 therefore your party should destroy him. He has a nasty seven-hit combo,
 ending in Spark of Time. This attack can paralyze a party member, which is
 annoying to no end (especially if he uses the attack frequently). Cure the
 character of the ailment or at least watch their HP so they don't die on you.

 Anyways, your offense should be pretty obvious. Kalas most likely has several
 strong Wind Magnus with him, as well as Gibari. Both have at least one Wind
 finisher, and Mizuti has Alias Fall. Those alone can really put the pain on
 Che. With the right cards, you can deal over 2000 damage in one combo. Che
 will use Seal of Health at the end of the battle, but that should be rendered
 useless by your nine-hit combos. After the battle, you will earn Ultimate
 Geyser, Gibari's final finisher. Now that's what I like to see. 


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sibling God Bo
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 14000          Weak: Fire (+100%)         Strong: Water (-100%)

 Drop: Finale

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

 Once again, another pushover of a Sibling God. Bo is the complete opposite of
 Ar, and he's just as easy. Like before, use Savyna for this battle. The plus
 side about the situation is that you now have Deadly Heat Scythe, which is a
 Fire Magnus. And what exactly is Bo weak against? Nice. on the bad side, Bo
 has a mean seven-hit combo, which he ends with Icy Burst. It can freeze you,
 and it happens quite frequently. Still, the goods overcome the bads in this
 battle (like most of the boss battles in Cor Hydrae).

 Sibling God Bo still isn't much to overcome. Savyna can take him out on her
 own. Mizuti and Kalas can also hold their ground, with their share of Fire
 Bursts, Efreeti Sabers, etc. Bo will use Seal of Sanity and Seal of Health,
 but he only uses the latter once. Once he does, you know it's time to use
 your full-out assault to take him down once and for all. With Bo defeated,
 you will receive Finale, Lyude's final (LOL) finisher.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Sibling God Le
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 14000          Weak: Chrono (+100%)         Strong: Wind (-100%)

 Drop: Planet Soul

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

 Wowie, a semi-tough Sibling God? I can't believe my eyes! The main reason for
 that is because Le is weak against Chrono. With Chronos Magnus being the most
 scarce in the game, you really have to rely on your other Magnus (except
 Wind) to beat him. My Gibari only had three Chronos Magnus in his deck, and
 Kalas had somewhere close. Mizuti had plenty of Chronos Blows, and all three
 party members have Chronos finishers. Despite that, Le is still a pretty hard
 and long boss battle.

 Le will use a seven-hit combo, ending with a nasty finisher which can poison
 you. He'll use the finisher often, so you might have two or even all three
 party members poisoned at one time. Use them Mineral Waters to prevent that
 and take down Le with Chronos Magnus. Gibari's Smash Tackle, Kalas's Dream
 Blade and Chaotic Illusion, and Mizuti's Heaven's Pillar should all work
 nicely. Once past that, it gets quite annoying.

 Stick with any Magnus other than Wind and you should still deal a lot of
 damage to Le. Once he uses Seal of Health, deplete his remaining HP to defeat
 the final Sibling God. Once Le is gone, you'll get Mizuti's final finisher,
 Planet Soul.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Malpercio
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 16000              Weak: Light (+50%) Wind (+20%)
                      Strong: Dark (-50%) Chrono (-20%)

 Drop: None

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

 You're up against Malpercio yet again, and the fight isn't much different
 then the battle in Algorab Village. Malpercio has a lot of HP, but damn, it
 will whittle away fast enough if you're a smart player. Malpercio has a seven
 -hit combo that ends with Divine Doom.

 It's a pretty nasty attack which can inflict numerous status effects on a
 character. His attacks will do around 1000-1500 damage normally, but they're
 a lot less when you block them with the proper Magnus. Malpercio will also
 use Soul Drain through the battle, draining your HP and adding it to his own.
 That's a drag, of course.

 I cannot stress this enough, pay attention to the effin' Spirit Numbers! I
 didn't really use them that much through the game, and I started to during
 this battle. If you can get a couple pairs of cards or even a straight, then
 the damage dealt to Malpercio is incredible. Mizuti is the easiest to use for
 this, since her attacks are slow. I had an attack that went through totaling
 normally for around 1500 damage.

 Luckily, the bonuses from Spirit Numbers increased the damage to around 4000.
 I mean, it makes things go so much faster and easier. Attack Malpercio with
 the normal Wind and Light Magnus, and this one should end rather quickly. I
 wouldn't worry about status effects here unless they are deadly ones, such as
 Paralysis. Other than that, just ignore them and pound him into submission.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 BOSS: Malpercio
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

 HP: 20000          Weak: Light (+80%)         Strong: Dark (-80%)

 Drop: None

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

 This is definitely a difficult battle, but I may have gotten lucky; I beat
 Malpercio on my first try. I bet it was luck. Malpercio is nothing like the
 form that we just fought previously. He has all new attacks, and they suck
 even more than the last arsenal.

 Malpercio has a nine-hit combo that can deal almost 2000 damage. That's bad
 enough on his own, but he also has seven-hit combos ending with one of two
 incredibly obnoxious finishers.

 His first finisher is Dark Arrow, which will inflict every status effect in
 the game except Freeze and Headache. That is a major pain in the ass. If you
 have the Broken Ocean's Mirror, which has a 100% resistance to all status
 effects, use it on the seventh hit to come out clean. I happened to get it
 twice during the attack.

 One spell that seems to piss EVERYONE off (they have a good reason to be mad)
 is Seal of Entrophy. When Malpercio uses this (he'll probably use it twice or
 three times during the battle), he will change his element. That means he has
 all new strengths and weaknesses. 

 Look at the colors and effects when he uses it. Blue bubbles means he's Water
 and fire means he's well, Fire. Dark green circles means he's Chronos and
 light green rays means Malpercio is Wind. Black means he is Dark and of
 course, White light means he is Light. It's a major pain, since you'll pretty
 much have to change your whole battle strategy.

 Make sure to attack Malpercio with as much Light Magnus at the start of the
 battle before he uses Seal of Entrophy. Like the last fight, it is very much
 possible to deal up to 4000 damage in one combo. Pay attention to Spirit
 Numbers and use them to your advantage. Heal any and all characters who are
 at 2000 health or below, since that's the danger zone. Salted Sweetfish,
 Peanuts, and Avocados help here.

 Malpercio shows no signs of fatigue through the battle by his battle stance.
 The only real way to know if Malpercio is about to die is if he uses
 Enchanted Blade. Used at the end of a seven-hit combo, the attack will drain
 HP and add it to his own.

 Not only that, but Malpercio will use the attack on all three characters. You
 MUST block the attacks or it's possible for Malpercio to gain as much as 4000
 HP from that flurry of attacks. If you do block them all, then the attack
 will be rendered virtually useless.

 20000 HP is a hell of a lot of HP, so the battle will take a long time,
 especially if Malpercio keeps changing his damn element. You might have to
 shuffle your deck twice or even three times during the fight. The battle is
 hard, but you can do it, even after a couple tries. I know, I beat Malpercio
 on my first try, so that's possible as well. Either way, Malpercio is a very
 worthy "final boss".
