Intro ~~~ So, you're interested in the Coliseum, you want to climb the ranks and hope to become champion, eh? Or maybe you just want to farm TP to fly past those Deck Levels... Whatever your goal, you've come to the right place. But first, you've got to get "registered". ~~~ II. Starting Off ~~~ Early in the game in Mintaka, at the screen of the port, in the corner between the building and some tanks, will be a cowardly man. Speak to him and he'll say some things about how he went through the hassle of signing up, and getting through the test, but now he's too afraid to actually go to the Coliseum. He'll offer you his dog tags instead. After aqcuiring them, you'll be able to visit the Coliseum from any blue save flower you find. The first time you go to the Coliseum, after entering the room to the left speak to the woman behind the desk in the top right corner. Ask to register for a battle, rank 1 (You can't expect to start at the top of the ranks, can you?) and choose any of the fights. Order doesn't matter, because you're going to have to fight them all to rank up, anyway. ~~~ III. Ranking Up ~~~ So, after you've fought off all the baddies of the first rank, you're ready to move up. Make sure you've gotten all the RP you need. You get an amount for each group of monsters you fight, and you can see how much you need in order to rank up by looking at the number next to "NEXT", which is displayed when you're talking to the Registration Lady. Assuming you're doing this before you go to Diadem, the Registration Lady will tell you that you have enough RP to rank up, but sadly, there are no jobs for you to do. She assures you that they will mail you as soon as they've found a job, though. Great, just great. After spending all that time fighting until you can't fight anymore, you have to wait. Just hurry up and get to Diadem, will ya? Also one quick note: If you already have access to the continent where the rank-up task is located, then the Registration Lady will tell you the task straight away. If not, then you will receive the job via a letter in the magnus shop of the continent in which the task is located. And occasionally the Registration Lady will tell you about your next task when you still need some more RP. Rank 2: Location: Diadem ; Sheliak Task: Get medical supplies from the doctor. How: Merely go into the door on the far left of the first screen (The screen with the Sfida) and talk to the doctor. After a cutscene involving Elle, a patient at the infirmary, you will receive the valuable item "Medical Supplies". Take the supplies to the Registration Lady and you will be advanced to Rank 2. Rank 3: Location: Sadal Suud ; Nunki Valley Task: Guide Mr. Lance through Nunki Valley to Cebalrai. How: Head over to Nunki Valley and find Mr. Lance in the screen closest to Cebalrai. Talk to him and he will ask you for directions. The correct directions are: Come Closer, Come Down, and Come Closer again. He will then say that he sees Cebalrai, and thanks you for your assistance. Go back to the Registration Lady and you will be advanced to Rank 3. Rank 4: Location: Anuenue ; Komo Mai Task: Meet with Mr. Panie How: Apparently, you've recieved a dinner invitation from Mr. Panie. It most likely has something to do with the group of monsters that he sponsors, which you completely obliterated, no doubt. Anywho, head to Komo Mai and into the first house you see. After Mr. Panie threatens you, head back to the Registration Lady and you will be advanced to Rank 4. Rank 5: Location: Tarazed ; Vega Task: Meet with Mr. Panie How: After ignoring his first threat, Mr. Panie invites you once again to his home. Except he's relocated to Tarazed. To find his new location, enter Vega and just keep going straigt until you reach the blue save flower. The house above the flower is where Mr. Panie is. Now he's done with threats and says if you go back to the coliseum again, he will reveal that you are not registered. Return anyway, and after a cutscene, go to the Registration Lady to be advanced to Rank 5. Champion: Location: Coliseum Task: Win the Championship Battle How: After getting the RP required to rank up, you will be able to take a shot at the Championship Battle. If you win, you will become the Champion, no questions asked. After you have become Champion, you will notice that there are now six statues of Sagi placed around the entrance hall of the Coliseum, as well. And you will be able to participate in the Advanced battles. ~~~ IV. Prizes ~~~ Starting with Rank 2, you will be able to talk to the woman behind the top left desk, and she will allow you to trade RP for prizes. Trading RP for prizes does NOT mean you need more to advance in ranks. For every rank you advance, you will be able to claim another prize. Finally, after beating The Wicked Gawd, you will be able to claim ???? (Portait of Verus) and EX Combo Recipe 6. Warrior's Scarf 5000 RP Dragon Claw 8000 RP Pink Beans 12000 RP Emperor's Crest 18000 RP Pegasus Feather 48000 RP ???? 99999 RP ~~~ EX Combo Recipe 1 10000 RP EX Combo Recipe 2 15000 RP EX Combo Recipe 3 25000 RP EX Combo Recipe 4 35000 RP EX Combo Recipe 5 75000 RP EX Combo Recipe 6 85000 RP ~~~ V.
