Version 1.0

Version 1.2 - Fixed a bunch of little mistakes.

Version 2.0 - Added unofficial sidequests: Sedna, Heartflask, Field Guide, 
               and Coliseum

Version 2.1 - Fixed a few more typos and added info from markinct and Cathy G.

Version 2.2 - Added Rank 5 glitch info from Nestor_Elias (sidequest 95)

Version 2.3 - Added further info/a possible solution to the Rank 5 glitch 
               from dragonlady

There are now two sections to the guide: Official and Unofficial. Ctrl + F
if you want to skip straight to the second section. "Official" sidequests
are those specifically listed as quests in the menu - the 100 of them. The
"unofficial" are sidequests despite the fact that they're not specifically 
called that by the game. 

Most of these I found on my own, but I got help from the boards, too. I didn't
write everyone's names down at the time because I hadn't planned on writing
a faq, so I'm sorry if I don't mention you by name. I do remember help from
Crystalorbie and Celsius. Thanks to im317 and morninglight for their threads
on the sidequests. That's how I found the Vega Thunderbolts (I'd missed them
twice). And thanks to ryokazendriel and his faq. I had tried many items on the
laughing man before I found him in his faq (the joke should have been obvious,
I guess, but I kept trying heartbreaking songs and extreme stress :P). 
Special thanks to markinct for his encouragement and help, especially with
his checklists. He's made several Excel lists that are wonderfully helpful
for collecting magnus and keeping up with Pac's eating, but I don't know how
to put them into Notepad without destroying them. I still haven't managed to 
finish Pac; thanks to DrWobbler for posting the last prizes on the board. I
have finished all the others though, so the rewards listed should be okay.
If you remember helping me and I don't have you mentioned, just email me and 
I'll fix it. :)

Copyright stuff: This is my work and if you plan to make money from it, I'll
expect you to send me my share. I have no plans for it beyond Gamefaqs. If you
want to post it on your site and you offer free game help, you're welcome to 
use it. If you find mistakes/additions I need to fix/include, just email me

There is no particular order for the sidequests. I'm numbering simply for the
sake of convenience and roughly in the order I came to them. In most cases,
return to the person who asked for help to claim your reward. Keep in mind 
that sidequests may become available long before you can finish them. They're
listed here in the order I received the request, not in the order in which
they were completed. 

Also, make a note to yourself that the three items unavailable after you enter
Tarazed are Warm Cheers/Icy Jeers and the Tub-time Greythorne. All three must
be fed to Pac-Man and Warm Cheers are needed for one sidequest in Pherkad, so
be sure to get those before you go to Tarazed. Don't misunderstand - you can 
go to Vega; just don't pass through the big golden doors to the emperor's
quarters - that's officially Tarazed. Warm Cheers and Icy Jeers are just like
Light and Dark Powder; they rotate back and forth every so often.

Have fun!

         Who:  Knight of Diadem
          Reward: Taunt

      This is one of the knights fighting/practicing (he's about half the size

        Where: Sheliak
         Who: Knight of Diadem
          Reward: Next-Generation Mixer and Sword of Tears

      When he asks how Celsica died, it doesn't matter which answer you give
      him. Go back to the Cloudvents and find her crest sparkling on the 
      ground. You can go immediately; just don't get too close to Nasca.

  44. Anuelegumes
        Where: Sheratan Village
         Who: Plant-Watching Girl
          Reward: Aqua Camaflouge

      Speak to the plant-watching girl at the orphanage. Give her either a
      Yesterbean or a Yesterbean Variant. Come back later in the game for the
      reward. I can't seem to get the reward before Disc 2 no matter how 
      early I initiate this quest.

  45. Un-wanted posters
        Where: Pherkad
         Who: Sagi
          Reward: Purple Beans

      Remove the five posters from around town. As each comes down, you will
      gain access to different areas. After you have all five, talk to the 
      artist in his house for the reward. If you're doing Pac-Man, keep one
      of each poster to age. It takes a loooooong time for them to finish
      (update from markinct: it takes 35 hours to age the posters).

  46. The search for Quzman
        Where: Pherkad
         Who: Taymiya
          Reward: Magnus Pack Coupon

      Go see Quzman in the Mintaka prison and send him home. Then go back to
      his wife for your reward.

  47. Pac-Man
        Where: Pherkad
         Who: Quzman
          Reward: Pac-Man, Pac-Land, Pac-Mania, Beast Chains, Beast Collar,
                  and Beast Shackles

      You must feed Pac-Man 147 different types of Quest Magnus.  I found it 
      enormously helpful to print off a list (I used markinct's) and
      check the magnus off as I went. You must pen Pac in with permanent quest
      magnus like the communicator, dog tags, and travel log or he will eat
      every edible quest magnus in your inventory. The one upside to this is
      that he makes short work of troublesome magnus like Chronic Fatigue.
      I stalled out at 145 the first time I played. When you start
      the second time, Pac's eating count starts at 77. Of course, since you
      have no way of knowing which 77, just start feeding him. On my current
      playthrough, my count is at 142 with only twelve items left that I 
      haven't fed him, so starting at 77 did me little good - frustrating. 

      --Just a note about Holy Droplets--

      I don't know why, but often Holy Droplets will turn to Pristine Water
      before Pac has time to eat the droplet. If you give Pac a droplet then
      check your quest inventory and find a Pristine Water that wasn't there
      before (it will bounce into another slot - don't know why), then Pac
      did not get the Holy Droplet. I finally just had to give him the droplet
      and stand still; walking seems to bounce it. Be careful with this one.
      If you're sure you've fed him 147 but your count is at 146, you might
      try the Holy Droplet first.

      --a note from markinct: The Holy Droplets only change quickly prior to 
        the fires in the forest (i.e., when still collected from the vine, 
        I guess).  Once they are stored in the vase, they do not seem to 
        change until taken from the forest.

  48. Is my husband unfaithful?
        Where: Mintaka
         Who: Camilla
          Reward: Mars Sophia

      Once you've given Almarde the Medic Kit, Paramour's Secret becomes
      available from her. Give Paramour's Secret to Camilla; she'll drop
      the reward.

  49. I'm totally beat...
        Where: Pherkad
         Who: Chubby Bartender
          Reward: Brawn Fruit and Sedna Fence

      Draw three rounds of Chronic Fatigue from the bartender at the pub.
      You can't discard Chronic Fatigue; it will disappear in a couple of 
      hours or Pac can eat it.
  50. The lightbugs of Nunki
        Where: Pherkad
         Who: Tree-hugging Granny
          Reward: Elemental Talisman

      After you've seen Giacomo at the entrance to Rodolfo's, this woman will
      be standing across from the pub. You must agree to help with the light-
      bugs for her to give you the Holy Leaf, which allows you to carry Holy
      Droplets. Once you've moved all the bugs, go back to see her.

  51. Citizens wanted!
        Where: Sedna
         Who: Mayor
          Reward: Sedna Odd Sculpture

      After you've given Maia enough Sedna and people appear, the mayor will
      be standing at the save flower. Speak to him to receive the Immigration
      Papers. Show the papers to five people:
         1. Girl in doctor's house in Sheratan
         2. Girl in laundry/well room in Pherkad
         3. Man sitting on the left side of the port screen in Sheliak (he's
             just been dumped by his girl)
         4. Man sitting on the left bench in the room with the fantail ducks
             in Komo Mai
         5. Girl standing top/right outside in Gemma Village.
      You'll know you have the right people because they want to live 
      elsewhere. Once you've sent them all to Sedna, go back to the mayor.
      He'll give you the Sedna piece and take the Immigration Papers off your

  52. The lost grandpa

         Who: Registration Lady

         Who: Knight of Diadem
          Reward: Magnus Pack Coupon

      This becomes available immediately following your Pow Cheese turning
      the sickly knight into a bruiser. His friend wants the nice one back, so
      you need to give him Fluella Cooties. There's a new patient in the

  66. Real electioneers cheat!
        Where: Komo Mai
         Who: Election Staff
          Reward: Versus Shield, Chalice of Freedom, Fate Idol, and
                   Elbow Grease Tea

      To start this quest, give a Traditional Komo Mai Cookie to Staff Chief
      Razor ("the old geezer"); he's in a black tophat in the Lefty HQ (left
      side of the School of Magic). He'll give you a staff pin and ask you to
      collect ballots. You must get nine to complete the quest. You can return
      to Komo Mai at anytime in the game to complete these requests.

      1. Nervous Guardsman - left room in palace; give him water to drink (he
         won't ask for it until later in the game). I always give him Pristine
         Water since it's available nearby, but others might work, too.

      2. Toothless Boy - near save flower - give him a Heartbreaking Song.

      3. Outdoor Merchant - guy at table near save flower - give him 
         Paramour's Secret or Treasure Lowdown. Mother-in-Law's Secret would
         probably work, too, but I haven't tested it.

      4. Unfunny Man - port - give him Poor Excuse for a Joke (available in
         same room as Nervous Guardsman).

      5. Cookie Dealer - port - give him ten Traditional KM Cookies (you can
         get Good Times from him after that).

      6. Noisy Man - in house with ducks - give him Chronic Fatigue.

      7. Fisherman - near save flower - give him Glubberfish Filet.

      8. Bounced/Unbounced Man (guy trying to get to port that's being 
         blocked) - give him a Stone (he won't take it until later in the 

      9. Zoned-Out Man - upper level of port - give him Fresh Air. He's also
         your source for Chronic Fatigue in this area.

      -Turn in Election Ballots to Staff Chief Razor as you get them.
      -After six ballots, he'll give you the Versed Shield.
      -After nine ballots, he'll give you the Chalice of Freedom.
      -After the speech telling you to leave Komo Mai, walk over to the Lefty
       Candidate, and he'll give you the Fate Idol.
      -Now leave Komo Mai (Opu's far enough) and return. After all the thank-
       you's, speak to Lefty Secretary (used to be Lefty Candidate) for the
       Elbow Grease Tea.

       *markinct tells me that this quest works just the same with the 
        Righties except that they don't send you in search of their wandering

  67. Fruit scavenging
        Where: Holoholo Jungle
         Who: Sagi
          Reward: Attack Amulet

      Throw a stone at it to get the Holoholo Fruit out of the tree. Use that
      where the Pollywhale is to get across. The Amulet's on the ground (you

      Give Rotten Food (available from Outdoor Merchant) to Chemistry Teacher
      (she's the lady in green working at a giant pink flask). Speak to her
      again for a Power Pellet. Power pellets are available from the flask
      from now on.

  70. Get credit in Classics!
        Where: Komo Mai

          Reward: Tower Shield

      Give Boring Classics Professor three Good Times (available from his 
      brother, the Cookie Dealer, at the port after you help him).

  71. Grab that monkey!
        Where: Holoholo Jungle
         Who: Sagi
          Reward: Speed Amulet

      Sneak up on the monkey (look for gray and a curly tail - head looks more
      like a koala bear) and hit the A button; repeat until you get the 
      Landmark Stone back (took me six tries).

  72. A washed-up Olifant
        Where: Opu Village
         Who: Olifant

         Who: Lolo
          Reward: Scarlet Crown

      Give Lolo one each of the five dagroots.

  74. Greythorne hearts
        Where: Sheratan Village
         Who: Old Man
          Reward: Catfish King's Whiskers and Vanishing Cloak

      Go see the old man next door to the orphanage in Sheratan (Disc 2 only);
      he wants Sagi to help with research, so he'll give you the Heart Link.
      From now on, anytime you meet a greythorne that is "looking straight
      into my heart," you can pour Salty Water on it to trade bodies. There
      are people around the world who will only speak of their secrets to
      the greythornes. To complete the sidequest, you must speak to everyone
      at eleven locations. Again, be sure to speak to everyone in the screen
      at each location. After you've done a few, return to Sheratan and 
      speak to the old man (I didn't count, sorry) for the Catfish King's

      1. Gena - orphanage (you can receive half-baked greythornes from
          her here [one at a time] as long as you talk to her BEFORE you give 
          her the heartenbrace)
      2. Ladekahn - Castle Elnath (Greythorne Storybook available)
      3. Gibari, Anna, etc. - Nashira Pub
      4. Almarde - Azha - you must finish all four of her sidequests for
          her section to be complete.

          room in his house
      6. Skeed - Camilla's house, Mintaka
      7. Palolo - Pherkad Laundry Room
      8. Queen Corellia - Komo Mai
      9. Rodolfo - Pherkad
     10. Lolo - Opu - speak to her as a greythorne until the greythorne closes
          its heart to you (seven times if I counted correctly). You can't
          do this one until after you've given Lolo the Gust Boulder.
     11. All the greythornes in Moonguile Forest in Sadal Suud. Sagi will 
         trade places with the gray one; the pink one will have Graythorne's
         Song to draw.

     After you've seen everyone, go straight up from where Sagi's standing
     in Moonguile Forest (as a greythorne, of course) for an exclamation
     point to appear. Hit A then go into the spring to get a message. You may
     now draw Spring-Lord's Voice. The sidequest is now done, so return to
     Sheratan for the Vanishing Cloak.

     *from markinct:
      On the Greythorne SQ, it might be helpful to list the closest source 
      of Salt Water:

     Juwar. You can get Hero's Pickax from him from now on.

 87. Almarde's Request 3
        Where: Azha Village
         Who: Almarde
          Reward: Magnus Pack Coupon

     This one must be done as a greythorne. Give her Goopy Machina Oil.

 88. The zoologist's wish
        Where: Celestial Tree
         Who: School Zoologist
          Reward: Cross Pendant and Speed Talisman

 93. Gather the rock-people!
        Where: Nekkar
         Who: Sagi
          Reward: Imperial Ward and Life Talisman

     This becomes available after you beat the boss at the summit of Nekkar.
     Find the three stones that look like people and push them to the summit.
     I find this sidequest to be maddening, but it seems to help to get a grip
     if you sneak up on the stones rather than run. 

     **Slight Spoiler**
     I would recommend going to Rasalas and helping the new daddy name his
     baby before you come here.

 94. Elevator repair
        Where: Vega
         Who: Middle-Aged Man
          Reward: Book of Mana (and elevator works)

     Go to the cafe and speak to the engineer (he's in the higher section at
     a table by himself) then go back and and choose Blue and Green.

 95. Emergency call
        Where: Coliseum
         Who: Registration Lady
          Reward: Sagi achieves Rank 5

     Go check your mail in Vega then go see Panie in the room closest to the
     save flower. I've read on the board that there's a glitch here. If you
     make small talk with the Registration Lady, it can keep you from hitting
     Rank 5 somehow. This has never happened to me (I've played three times
     now), so I don't know the particulars. Just don't talk to her until
     you're Champion.

     Received some info about this glitch from Nestor_Elias:

     "The Coliseum 'rank 5 glitch' is as follows: if you speak to the 
      registration lady after Terazed has appeared outside Alfard (on 
      the world map) but before actually traveling to Vega, a glitch happens 
      where you cannot trigger a key cutscene with Mr. Panie in Vega and thus 
      cannot complete the rank quest.  If this happens, you will be stuck at 
      rank 4 for the rest of the game.  Moral of the story: do not speak to 
      the registration lady until after you reach Vega."

     Thanks a lot, Nestor_Elias!

     "I'm writing about your comment regarding level 5 of the coliseum.  Well, 
     I got stuck, never got the letter in Vega. It was very late in my game 
     and I still couldn't get above level 4 at the coliseum.  I even went back 
     and talked to every character in the game, with no luck.  Then, when I 
     read in your walkthrough at gamefaqs that if you talked to the girl at 
     the counter (which I did after almost every fight) that it caused a 
     glitch that kept you from going to level 5.  Well, I think I may have 
     found a way to correct it, at least it worked for me.  I needed some money 
     so I went back to the coliseum and I started the fights over, in order, 
     beginning with level one to find out which paid the most money.  I always 
     push the buttons fast after a fight (who doesn't), but one time I thought 
     I saw the word Vega whiz by.  I didn't remember her mentioning Vega before 
     so I fought again and read what she said after, but no Vega.  I ran to the 
     post office in Vega, just in case, but no mail. I was really disappointed 
     but then I thought to check my quests, and there it was, the quest to get 
     level 5.  I don't remember how many fights before this happened, but it 
     was somewhere on level one.  I remember noticing that it was no longer at 
     zero (perhaps speaking to her can reset the numbers), which I thought was 
     strange. I believe I got the Quest when it hit zero again but I can’t be 
     absolutely sure because I saved in between, so I couldn’t try again to be 
     certain, so I’d be curious to know if anyone out there, who’s stuck like 
     I was, would test it to be sure.  I hope this is helpful to someone."

     Thanks so much, dragonlady!

 96. The Vega Thunderbolts
        Where: Vega
         Who: Shaun
          Reward: Fate's Kiss and "warping" around Vega

     Take the elevator nearest the shop in Vega up. There will be three pods
     in a row on the right side. Give a Lightning Shroom to the first guy.
     He'll give you Fate's Kiss and offer to give you a lift anywhere you 
     want to go in Vega. He'll have a friend stationed at the entrance from
     now on to give you rides, too.

 The last four quests involve the Old Researcher. You can only talk to him
 after you become Champion at the Coliseum. He's in the Champion's Room (one
 of the doors on the left wall in the Coliseum). Now you know why those four
 enemies never disappeared. :)

 97. Ruler of the skies
        Where: Coliseum
         Who: Old Researcher
          Reward: Holoholo Bird (without chicks) may be fought at Coliseum

     Give him a Holoholo Bird Plume from the jungle.

         Who: Old Researcher

     Give him Sandfeeder Silk from the Sandfeeder Pit.

Unofficial Sidequests

These are sidequests that aren't listed among the 100 sidequests in the quest
menu. All of them must be done, however, if you're trying to get all the
magnus in your gathering. The Coliseum must be done to finish all the official


Rewards: Rainbow Fruit, Migraine Mirror, Moon-Shaped Earring, Star-Shaped
          Earring, Sword-Shaped Earring

Sedna is a town accessible only via the blue save flowers; it becomes open
after you defeat the Sandfeeder. Your job is to collect all the Sedna magnus
and take them to Maia in order to bring the town back. Below is a listing of
all of them and their locations.

Heart Flask

Rewards: None

The Heart Flask is a strange little sidequest. From the screen where you get
Mother Sunshine in the Nihal Desert, run left off the screen. You'll come to
a hidden cave. Inside will be Georg and Larikush. Speak to Georg, and he will
give you the Heart Flask. After that, you carry it until it changes, after 
which you take it back to Georg for inspection. In all, there are five forms
of the Heart Flask. Its only purpose as far as I can tell is to fill in five
spots in the magnus list. Once you're done (and it takes a long while for it
to age to its final form), Georg will take it back and basically tell you to
scram (man, is he a cold fish!). You get no prize, no reward, so there's 
no real purpose except to complete the gathering. Of course, if you read the
entry on the final form of the Heart Flask, it says something to the effect 
that it feels like a new life is about to be born from the hearts in the 
flask - definitely a nod to BK1, but we'll not go there for those of you
who haven't played that game yet.

Field Guide

Rewards: Hermit's Cane, Fate Idol, Poison Ashes, Berserker Drink, Harp of
          Slumber, Tarot Card: Death, Hero's Crest, Purest Gold

I am not listing the entire Field Guide here. I did a separate faq for that
because it's a good bit of information. In a nutshell, speak to the doctor
in Sheratan when you arrive, and he will give you the Field Guide. As you 
fight enemies, it will fill in with the enemy/monster name and picture,
special skills, and items dropped. To get all eight prizes, you must get them
all. Like the magnus, your entries carry over to the next game. Since the 
final bosses have entries, you can't complete it in one playthrough. Rather,
you can't collect your final prizes. If you achieve 100% the first time you
play, Doc should give you all eight prizes just after you get the guide your
next time through. Just keep talking to him.


To gain access to the Coliseum, look for The Wussy Guy in Mintaka early in 
the game; just look for a new face around the port - that'll be him. He'll
give you the Dog Tags. After that, you can go to the Coliseum from any blue
save flower.

For each rank, you must earn the necessary Rank Points (RP) and fulfill a
request by the Registration Lady (always received via mail at the shops). Each
of her requests is considered a separate "official" sidequest, so you'll fill
in a few of those as you go.

Rising through the ranks is pretty self-explanatory. Just fight everything in
each rank at least once then keep fighting until the points needed to the next
level reach zero. Then wait for your letter from the Registration Lady. 
The Registration Lady will tell you that you're ready to move up a 
rank, but "sadly, we have no jobs available" or something like that. I don't
know why, but sometimes she'll tell tell you this when, in fact, you're not
ready. She will tell me this when I still have RP to go, so be aware that
she jumps the gun from time to time; just keep an eye on your points and make
sure you have all you need. If you don't, you'll never get the letter with 
the job for the next rank.

In Sheliak, you should receive your first letter (if you've earned enough
points to move to Rank 2). You'll be sent to the clinic and there will be a
scene with Elle. This request is never listed as a sidequest, but you're not
allowed to turn it now. It's just part of the whole Coliseum thing. Take the
medicine to the Registration Lady to receive Rank 2.

Your next letter should arrive in Pherkad. You will escort Mr. Lance through
Nunki Valley then see the Registration Lady to achieve Rank 3.

You will now be warned by Ark to lose to Snare. Ignore him.

In Komo Mai (Disc 2), you will be sent to Mr. Panie's house (first house 
near the entrance to Komo Mai). Report back to the Registration Lady for
Rank 4.

To reach Rank 5, check your mail at the shop in Vega then go see Mr. Panie.
He has moved to the room closest to the save flower in Vega (not far from
where you entered the city). Now go back to the Coliseum, see the scene, and
report to the Registration Lady. I have read that making small talk with the
the Registration Lady can somehow glitch Rank 5. In three times, this hasn't
happened to me, so I don't know the particulars, just don't make small talk
until you're Champion. :)

Once you hit Rank 5, just get the points necessary to enter the Champsionship

The Advanced Battles are all purely optional with the exception of the first
one. If you want the ???? prize for 99,999 RP, you must have beaten every
1-5 Rank Battle, the Championship Fight, AND The Wicked Gawd. This makes
that prize available. If you want Gena's Pinion and you want to finish Pac-
Man, you must get this prize.

And that's about it. The rest is just a question of getting through the 
fights. I'm listing all the enemies in the different ranks/battles, so if
you need one in particular, you can go straight to it. The Coliseum is a
great place to farm particular items (like Tonitrus Armor from Holoholo Bird
if you're trying to get all of the upgrades or Apocalypse Sword from the
Black Dragon) and to fill in missing places in your Field Guide.

Fights at the Coliseum are gauntlet fights, i.e. you'll fight several rounds
in a row to win that battle. This can be abused to rack up major amounts of
TP to build your class at the End Bethel. Your decks, discards will max out 
at eight decks, sixty cards, and eight discards; after that, raising your 
class speeds up how quickly your MP replenishes.
