I. Version History

Version 1.0-3/11/09

Submitted Guide to GameFAQs.  Only site permitted to display my guide so far.
Only have my path for submitted paths, hoping to get more.

Version 0.1-12/16/09

Started this guide because I was bored, much like my last two guides. This
game is also amazing. Ever wonder how early you can get those uber healing 
items? This is the guide that will tell you.

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

II. FAQ

1) What's new?

This game is over 5 years old, so there's really nothing new about it, but I'm
sad to see how little people know about this game. Seeing as how new guides
generate new discussion, this guide will serve, hopefully to increase the 
popularity of the game, or at least make more topics on the board.

2) Why Healing Items?

I've already done one on Monster drops and Equipment, this seemed like the 
natural progression. There are no level gains that get you a new spell to heal
with, no equipment that makes you absorb a certain type of damage. This game
relies instead on the gaining of item magnus that you can use. Some items are
easier to deal with, some require good timing and proper planing. All this
works together to create a wonderfully entertaining experience of trying to 
keep yourself alive!

3) I have a healing path for you!

Great, E-mail me the path. Be sure to be specific about item and locations. If
you want to include a little bit about why you choose certain items it could
help someone out. Just a quick note about 1 path.

**The "Get to the Ancient Library and wait 80 hours for Wonder MOMO" won't be
posted.**

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

III. Healing Items

A complete listing of each item magnus with it's properties (atk and def) and
a description of how to obtain it which will correspond to one of the three
paths players can choose on how to acquire healing magnus.

This list is sorted by amount healed, the next section contains a guide of how
to obtain each of these as quickly as possible. In addition, I've also 
categorized each item into it's gathering method:

1. Drop - Magnus obtained from a monster drop/treasure/storyline/etc.
2. Time - Magnus obtained from a "                                  " + Time
3. Combo - Magnus obtained from a Special Combo performed in battle. Includes
           the number of magnus needed for the combo. If you come across a 
           combo with a general item, like "Fire" or "Water" and you aren't
           getting the item, look at the SP combo guide and see what item
           you need exactly. As a general rule, using common sense will help
           in figuring this correctly. If you get something charred or burnt
           use a weaker level item.

EPO - Earliest Point Obtainable, a general location where you will be able to
      create/gather/age the healing magnus.

Duration: Listing of how long the item will continue to offer healing benefit,
          before turning into something else that may or may not heal.

IV. Healing Paths

The paths below are the general consensus on how to get healing items in this
game, sorted in terms of effort, are as follows:

Maximum Healing - Getting the healing item with the biggest heal.
Cure Death 100%*- Getting the healing item with the 100% cure death effect.
Survivalist     - Getting only healing items that drop from monsters or that
                  you can purchase. This includes magnus obtained after time.

*The first item you can get with the Cure Death 100% effect is Sacred Wine,
in Mira. This path is not in use until there is an item with the cure death 
effect available.

Tips:
=====

1) Putting the better healing items in the person's deck with the highest 
   agility will make it easier for you to effectively heal, simply due to the
   fact that you don't want to have a healing item available only to have a 
   monster kill you before you get a chance to use it.
2) Keep tabs on your healing items, as many decay and no longer heal at all.
3) It's really a personal preference what healing items to use, and in what
   quantities to use them. As a general rule if you are using healing items
   outside of battle you may want to get a stronger healing item or more of
   what you are already using.


Area                 
==============================================================================
A. Sudal Suud
==============

Moonguile Forest
----------------

At the start of the game, you will have only Bamboo Shoots, which should be
more than enough. Before long, during the first boss fight you will get the 
next item, at least for the time being.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Bamboo Shoot - Drop from Unuks
Bananas - Obtain from Xelha's Deck
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Survivalist       |    Max Healing
                  |
Bamboo Shoot      | Bananas/Bamboo Shoot
==============================================================================

Nunki Valley
------------

If you didn't remove the Bananas from Xelha's deck before the boss fight, you
are going to have to settle for Bamboo Shoots, which should be fine at this
point.

==============================================================================
New Items:

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

The Lord's Mansion
------------------

You can purchase bananas at the town shop before entering the mansion, and the
enemies here also drop Green Bananas which turn into Bananas in 2 hours.

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

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

B. Diadem
=========

Lesser Celestial River
----------------------

Lots of new things here, and your first chance to use a SP combo to get a much
better healing item than the Survivalist path.  It may take you a few hours
to get, but if you are into that sort of thing...

==============================================================================
New Items:
Honey - Drop from Pul-Puks
Grapes - Drop from Cancerites
Deluxe Sweet Wine - Age Grapes 2 hours
Fruit Cornucopia - Grapes x 4, need Class 3 item.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Survivalist        |    Max Healing
                   |
Grapes/Honey       |    Fruit Cornucopia
==============================================================================

Cloud Passage
-------------

A LOT more items here, and a few more things to use SP combos for. A note for
some people who see Deluxe Pickles as a lazy man's answer to everything. If 
you choose to, you can leave your game on for 18 hours and come back to as 
many 520 Healing Items as you farm without worrying about aura changes.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Cucumbers - Drop from Albireos
Pretty Flower - Flower Bud + Light Flare
Pickled Cucumbers - Age Cucumbers 3 Hours
Cheese Fondue - Deluxe Sweet Wine + Cheese
Cheese - Age Milk 4 hours
Milk - Drop from Stripers
Melon - Honey + Cucumbers
Chestnuts - Cheese + Honey
Pretty Flowers - Pretty Flower x 4
Deluxe Pickles - Age Pickled Cucmbers 15 Hours
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Survivalist        |    Max Healing
                   |
Milk/Deluxe S.Wine |   Fruit Cornucopia
==============================================================================

Castle Elnath
-------------

Your first chance to get RICE! The more rice you get the better. Since these
guys don't respawn you should aim for picking up at least 2 Uncooked Rice
magnus. The rice itself turns into wine after 3 hours, so better get to work
as soon as you can. Hope you didn't sell your Power Helmets. 

==============================================================================
New Items:
Uncooked Rice - Drop
Japanese Rice Wine - Age Uncooked Rice 3 hours
Rice - Power Helmet + Uncooked Rice + Water + Fire
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Survivalist        |    Max Healing
                   |

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

C. Anuenue
==========

Ancient Library
---------------

I'm including two items that you can get in town here, since you can't really
use them until you get into a dungeon. 5 new items here, although you may have
a tough time getting a few of them if you aren't quick. Not to worry, they 
will be available in the next dungeon as well. Max healing will be sticking
with Extra Fluffy Rice for the next 2 islands, so you can continue making them
as needed.  Remember, however many peaches you get will be how many Wonder
MOMOs you will have at the end of the game (or at the end of 80 hours). Deluxe
Bananas cure sleep 100%, but they turn into rotten fruit after 6 hours.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Deluxe Bananas - Found in Anuenue (only 1)
Silkworm - Drop from Cursed Grimoires
Strawberries - Drop from Skeleton Warriors
Extra Fluffy Rice - Power Helmet + Uncooked Rice + Water + Charcoal + Fire
Wonder MOMO - Age Peach 80 Hours
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Survivalist        |    Max Healing
                   | 
Strawberries       |   Extra Fluffy Rice
==============================================================================

Holoholo Jungle
---------------

In case all your uncooked rice turned into wine before you could make rice,
you can get more here. We get our first fish magnus here, helpful for making
more SP combo healing magnus.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Pickled Eggplant - Drop from Mirabilis
Skipjack - Drop from Spell Shellfish
Grilled Fish - Fish + Fire
Fresh Sashimi Set - Fish x 4
Minced Skipjack - Skipjack + Charcoal + Fire
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Survivalist        |    Max Healing
                   |
Skipjack           |   Extra Fluffy Rice
==============================================================================

Celestial Tree
--------------

If you want to wait for Green Plums to turn into Pickled Plums you can make
a few more SP combos, but nothing will top the Extra Fluffy Rice. Your Bamboo
Shoots will hopefully have turned into Fishing Rods by now, so making Sea
Bream will be a quick combo that will get you a 500 healing item. Once you 
have enough Rice items you can make an easy 1200 healing item as well.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Shrimp - Drop from Blood Leafs
Sea Bream - Shrimp + Fishing Rod
Sea Bream Lunch - Rice + Sea Bream
Rice Ball - Rice + Pickled Plums
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Survivalist        |    Max Healing

D. Mira
=======

Portal to Another Dimension
---------------------------

To be honest I can't remember if you can add items to your deck while in here,
but I'll just include this in its own section. If I find out later that you
can't add items to your deck, it'll be updated. You should really just worry
about the items that are missable in this section anyway. Go look at my other
guide if you want to know what those are.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Curry - Drop from Zelmers
Last Night's Curry - Age Curry 24 Hours
Curry with Rice - Rice + Pickled Item + Curry
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Survivalist        |    Max Healing
                   |  
Skipjack           |   Extra Fluffy Rice
==============================================================================

Detourne
--------

Lot of new things here, not very good things, but still. You can pick up some
meat in the town before coming here, but you can't make it a healing item 
until you come to the dungeon. I'm going to make a special note for anything
that gives you a 100% effect. In this case, Dried Persimmons cure headaches
100%.  Last Night's Curry cures Paralysis 100% as well, but that one takes a 
bit longer to get to.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Persimmons - Drop from Gormers

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

Reverence
---------

I wouldn't add a section just for this, since it isn't a dungeon, but 
technically you can get the items needed for the below SP combos and go back
to Detourne. So, you really only need to go this far before having access to
these items. I'm really doing this for those people that would care to point
out such technicalities. I also get to point out that we finally have an item
that has the 100% Cure Death ability. 

==============================================================================
New Items:
Holy Grail - Monolith Pen + tri-Cresendo Pen
Sacred Wine - Holy Grail + Japanese Rice Wine
==============================================================================

Nekton
------

Quite a few things here, but unless you made it here from the start of Diadem
within a few hours you won't be able to make many of them. Don't worry, you'll
have another chance in Alfard. If you are wondering why this is, 2 items are 
to blame: Strawberries and Bamboo Shoot.  For 3 of the SP combos you need a 
Paper fan, and in order to make it, you need Rice Paper from Nekton, and Young
Bamboo. If you are playing along average times, all your Young Bamboo will 
have turned to Fishing Rods by the time you reach Nekton. Another 2 SP combos
require Strawberries, which again, if you are playing along average times, 
will have turned into rotten fruit by now. Both of these items are available
in Alfard, which will be coming up soon.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Sugar Cane - Drop from Ray-Moos
Sugar - Age Sugar Cane 4 Hours
Sushi Rice - Rice + Vinegar + Paper Fan
Orange - Age Frozen Tangerine 2.5 Hours
Strawberry Jam - Strawberries + Sugar + Fire
Fruit Tart - Fruit + Sugar
Strawberry Milk - Milk + Strawberries + Sugar
Roasted Squid - Squid + Fire + Paper Fan
Chicken Kebab - Rooster + Large Fire + Paper Fan

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

Balancoire
----------

2 things to point out here, one will be much harder to get than the other, in
fact, it will be impossible to get under normal (read non-cheating) methods.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Tearless Mermaid - Found in the Mansion
Deluxe Sashimi Boat - Model Boat + Fish x 4
==============================================================================

Coccolith
---------

Only 1 new item here. Mizuti will have a Sacred Wine for you, but I'm not
going to include that in the Survivalist path, because you only get 1 of them.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Deluxe Red Wine - Drop from Sbarbs

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

E. Alfard
=========

Mintaka
-------

Nothing new here, but you get Strawberries from the Soldiers and Bamboo Shoots
from the shop, so you can make everything that you couldn't make before. I 
should point out that if you wanted to make anything with Milk you should have
picked some up just before leaving Mira, in Nekton to give you the best chance
to use it.

Goldoba
-------

Really nothing new here.

Lava Caves
----------

To make up for the last two spots, the game decides to give you a plethora of
new items in this dungeon. More new items than at any point in the game. Let's
get started. A Great Fortune will not be included in the Survivalist path due
to its predictable, but unreliable nature.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Crimson Oak Blossom - Drop from Foytows
Sunflower Coin - Drop from Magma Beasts
A Good Fortune - Drop from Ceratobus
Apple - Drop from Lanocaulis
An Average Fortune - Drop as Good Fortunes from Ceratobus
Green Tea - Drop from Foytows
Freshly Baked Bread - Wheat + Water + Fire
Beer - Age Wheat 4 hours
A Great Fortune - Drop as Good Fortunes from Ceratobus
Strange Brew -Japanese Rice Wine + Other Wine + Beer
Western Breakfast - Freshly Baked Bread + Strawberry Jam + Milk
Deluxe Curry - Apple + Honey + Curry
Deluxe Green Tea - Large Teamug + Green Tea
Deluxe Rice - Power Helmet + Uncooked Rice + Water + Deluxe Charcoal + Fire
Deluxe Curry with Rice - Deluxe Rice + Deluxe Curry + Pickled Item
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Gomeisa
-------

I'm sure you are still catching up from all the items from the Lava Caves, but
here comes some more.  A lot of great healing magnus here, including a new
100% cure death magnus. Anything that requires Young Wasabi Root will have to
wait until you actually get it in town. You can go back to the cliffs and
start working on the SP combos once you obtain it however. We also end the Max
Healing path here, and get a 99/99% heal for Freeze, 90/100% heal for Flames.
Not exactly 100%, but close enough.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Young Wasabi Root - Found in town
Birch Sap Gum - Age Birch 3.5 Hours (Drop from Snow Cancerites)
Wasabi Root - Young Wasabi Root + Dark
Eel - Drop from Flobos
Deluxe Wasabi Root - Wasabi Root + Water
Vanilla Ice Cream - Meat + Fire + Birch Sap Gum
Ocean Mirror - Obtain after story events
Beef Stew - Bacon/Beef + Deluxe Charcoal + Fire + Birch Sap Gum
Charcoal Broiled Eel - Eel + Charcoal + Fire
Deluxe Sushi - Sushi Rice + Fish + Deluxe Wasabi Root
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Green Tea          |   Deluxe Wasabi Root   |    Deluxe Sushi
==============================================================================

G. Alfard (2nd Visit)
=====================


Mintaka (2nd visit)
-------------------

Only thing new here is Soy Beans, which are used in quite a few SP combos, but
I'll combine it with the next section.

Imperial Fortress
-----------------

Along with the Soy Beans there are 5 new items in this area, and 3 of them are
or require Soy Beans in the form of Soy Sauce.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Soy Beans - Drop from Gagareks in Mintaka
Broken Ocean Mirror - Obtain after story events
Cute Doll - Doll + Pretty Flower
Sea Urchin - Custard Pudding + Soy Sauce
Toasted Rice Ball - Rice Ball + Soy Sauce + Fire
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Survivalist        |    Cure Death 100%     |    Max Healing
                   |                        |
Green Tea          |   Deluxe Wasabi Root   |    Deluxe Sushi
==============================================================================

H. Durh
=======

Labyrinth of Durh
-----------------

Anyone crazy enough to do the Survivalist path will get an upgrade here. This
place only has a few new SP combos to go with the few new items you can get
here. One of them is the incredible, edible, egg, which has the best Defense
modifier in the game: +40/+80. I still prefer the attack modifier from pickles
though.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Egg - Drop from Bar-Mools
Sun Coin - Obtain from a chest
Peanuts - Drop from Mafreegas
Fried Egg - Egg + Fire (Level 3/4)
Soft Boiled Egg - Egg + Fire (Level 1/2)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Survivalist        |    Cure Death 100%     |    Max Healing
                   |                        |
Peanuts            |   Deluxe Wasabi Root   |    Deluxe Sushi
==============================================================================

Gemma/Capaella
--------------

Combining these two locations, because you get 2 items in Gemma and one item
in Capaella. The two locations are close enough time wise that you shouldn't
care. The Goddess of Victory has 40/40% cure all, pretty nifty if you ask me.
The Broken Earth Sphere would be included in the Cure Death 100% path, but 
you only get one, so I'm leaving it out.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Cherries - Drop from Ghoulish Skirmishers
Goddess of Victory - Forlorn Woman + Endeavoring Woman
Broken Earth Sphere - Obtain after story events
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Survivalist        |    Cure Death 100%     |    Max Healing

Peanuts            |   Deluxe Wasabi Root   |    Deluxe Sushi
==============================================================================

Zosma
-----

This fun little place has 2 new items for you, one of which seems to make very
little sense. Survivalist obtain their best item here as well (without waiting
for other items to change in game).

==============================================================================
New Items:
Salted Sweetfish - Drop from 
Baked Potato - Large Fire + Water (Level 5/6)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Survivalist        |    Cure Death 100%     |    Max Healing
                   |                        |
Salted Sweetfish   |   Deluxe Wasabi Root   |    Deluxe Sushi
==============================================================================

I. Celestial Alps
=================

This area is the final location for new healing magnus, so it will contain the
end line items for each path, including those that can obtained through aging
that would not be obtained in a normal playthrough. For the Survivalist Path,
you could include any time product at the end, namely Wonder MOMO, but I think
the whole point of that path is see the challenge of using only what you find,
like that Discovery Channel program.

==============================================================================
New Items:
Avocado - Obtain from chest/Drop from Breachers in Zosma (lower levels)
Stinky Beans - Straw + Soy Beans
Fatty Tuna - Avocado + Soy Sauce
Japanese Breakfast - Rice + Stinky Beans + Egg
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

V. Healing Path Recaps
======================

A Quick Snapshot of progression for each path, just in case you want to keep a
little cheat sheet of when you should change healing items for a particular
path.

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

A. Survivalist (aka the Grylls path)
--------------

  | Healing-Item                  | Location
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.| (45) Bamboo Shoot             | Moonguile Forest 
2.| (90) Bananas                  | The Lord's Mansion
3.| (100) Grapes                  | Lesser Celestial River
4.| (150) Milk                    | Cloud Passage
5.| (220) Strawberries            | Ancient Library 
6.| (330) Skipjack                | Holoholo Jungle
7.| (400) Custard Pudding         | Detourne
8.| (770) Green Tea               | Lava Caves
9.| (850) Peanuts                 | Labyrinth of Durh
10| (970) Salted Sweetfish        | Zosma

Difficulty Rating: 9/10

Pros: Only worry about healing when you have to. This path means you won't 
      care about what you put in your mouth, so long as you don't have to work
      for it.

Cons: Certain fights will depend 100% on Luck. Geldoblame for one has a nasty
      100% death attack, which will mean that unless you happen upon the 1
      Holy Grail or 1 Sacred Wine you should have at this point, you will be
      out a character in a very tough boss fight.

Summary - This path should be taken by people looking for a challenge, and
          unfortunately by people who don't know any better.  

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

B. Cure Death 100% (aka the "I DON'T WANNA DIE!" path)
------------------

  | Healing-Item                  | Location
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.| (500) Sacred Wine             | Reverence
2.| (880) Deluxe Wasabi Root      | Wazn
3.| (2800) Wonder MOMO            | End Game

Difficulty Rating: 3/10

Pros: If you have enough of these items you don't have to worry about dying,
      and the rest of the fight is just a matter of how long the enemy lasts.
      Only 4 items in the game cure death 100%, so you won't be doing a lot of
      switching between items.

Cons: Only 4 items in the game cure death 100%, so you need a lot of items per
      character to compensate. You will also have to pick another path prior
      to getting to Reverence.

Summary - I really don't have much to base this on, but I believe a lot of
          people end up going this path since the game forces you to have at
          least 1 item with the Cure Death effect. 2nd play throughs will 
          mostly consist of getting as many of these items as quickly as 
          possible, leading to this path being the supposed standard.

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

C. Max Healing (aka the "My ego is based on seeing big numbers" path)

  | Healing-Item                  | Location
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.| (45) Bamboo Shoot             | Moonguile Forest 
2.| (90) Bananas                  | The Lord's Mansion
3.| (340) Fruit Cornucopia        | Lesser Celestial River
4.| (800) Rice                    | Castle Elnath
5.| (1350) Extra Fluffy Rice      | Ancient Library
6.| (2300) Deluxe Curry with Rice | Lava Caves
7.| (3000) Deluxe Sushi           | Wazn

Difficulty Rating: 8/10

Pros: Over healing will be your forte. I'm not sure if it is possible, but 
      just based on the numbers the maximum theoretical heal is 82,620. Good
      Grief! Anyone know if Deluxe Sushi can get a 1-9? Also a plus, you won't
      have to have as many healing items in your deck as with the other paths.

Cons: This is really overkill in a game, where frankly, healing just isn't 
      that necessary. The first SP combo you use will literally take longer to
      make than is beneficial, and even though it gets easier after that, 
      getting uncooked rice becomes quite a chore in some parts of the game.
      The other side of the coin to not using as many healing items is that 
      you may have trouble getting a healing item when you need it.

Summary - To clarify, this path is not difficult because of the game play, but
          because of how difficult it will be to make these items as you play
          the game. Some of these items are not only difficult to make, but 
          require you to keep opposing elements in your deck...not a good 
          thing in case you didn't know. I'm sure there are some people that
          take this path from Rice on, but many people just won't bother with
          a 5 part SP combo for a healing item.

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

D. Other Submitted Paths

1. My path (aka the lazy man path)

  | Healing-Item                  | Location
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.| Bamboo Shoot                  | Moonguile Forest
2.| Bananas                       | The Lord's Mansion
3.| Grapes/Honey                  | Lesser Celestial River
4.| Melon                         | Cloud Passage
5.| Strawberries                  | Ancient Library
6.| Sea Bream                     | Celestial Tree
7.| Sacred Wine                   | Reverence
8.| Deluxe Wasabi Root            | Wazn
9.| Wonder MOMO                   | End Game

Difficulty Rating: 3/10

Pros: Nothing in this path takes more than a 2 item SP combo. Follows the Cure
      Death 100% path, so you don't have to worry about dying, or really much
      of anything. You can add in items in this path to supplement the bland
      path. I normally add Deluxe Pickles from around Alfard onward. 520 
      healing and +30/60 Attack bonus is nice.

Cons: Same as the Cure Death 100% Path cons.

Summary - This is the path I took on my 100% completion file. You get to the
          end game with 10 SP combos or so, which means I had a lot to still
          do after getting to the Celestial Alps, but everything is obtainable
          at that point. Again, not hard, just healing to get by while you 
          wait for the Wonder MOMOs.

VI. End Credits

I'll be thanking people here who point out errors, submit paths, etc.

Alfieri X - Gave me that little push to get me to finish this. Thanks pal!
