 Button configs can't be changed. However, in-battle shortcuts can be made by
 using the Options menu. By "extra information," it means that button can be
 used to see extra info on stats, terrain, enemy information, and so on. It's
 a real useful tool!

     ATTACK ELEVATION                                               [ATKL]

     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

 Elevation and weapon range dictates how advantageous a position can be for
 the player. Spears and whips can reach two panels to attack an enemy, with
 restrictions being 3s (steps) up and 4s down. Swords, rapiers, and other one
 -handed weapons can only hit 2s (steps) up or 3s down.

 This means if an enemy has a one-handed weapon and is attacked from 3s above
 it, it won't be able to counterattack. Attacking from behind is another way
 to 'ensure' that the enemy won't counterattack, although it can still BLOCK
 the attack at times.

 To see if an enemy can counterattack, select an enemy as a target to bring
 up the stats menu where it shows the projected damage, Hit% and such. Look at
 the the arrow between them. If it is blue, that unit's safe and the enemy is
 not able to counterattack; if it's red, a counterattack is possible.

 Spears and whips are able to hit two panels from where they stand, thus being
 able to hit up to two enemies (pierce through) and/or earn the Lancer emblem,
 which is gained through hitting two enemies with one weapon attack.

 Unlike one-handed weapons, their height restrictions aren't as poor, letting
 them hit 3s (steps) up and 4s downward. They can still pierce two enemies even
 at a slant, but only if both are within the 0-4s range. This is what the
 tutorial means when it says "the range may change depending on the height."

     MISSILE ATTACKS                                                [MSLA]

 Missile attacks (bows, crossbows) fire projectiles which have a certain range
 set into them. Pretend that an Archer and a target are on even (0s) ground.
 The archer attacks and the range is 4 panels. The set range ONLY applies to
 flat elevation, despite what's displayed!

 This means that a higher elevation, an archer can shoot outside its range due
 to the projectile falling at a slant. Using the same example above, if the
 archer moves onto a 1s panel and attacks an enemy on a 0s panel, it's range
 will still be shown as 4 but it can shoot one more panel beyond, making the
 actual range 5.

 For enemies that can fly (Fairies, Hawkmen) and secure the highest positions
 with ease, their range will be boosted to a high degree. The only problem with
 shooting outside the range is that obstacles are NOT taken into account in the
 displayed Hit%. If there is a pillar in between the target and shooter, it may
 show 100% hit rate but it'll be 0% in actuality, y'dig?

     KNOCKBACK                                                      [KNBK]

     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

 Knockback (or recoil, as the game calls it) occurs when a unit is attacked in
 such a way that it's displaced from its current position, moving to another
 panel. Critical hits can make a unit move one space backwards, and shields're
 capable of doing this at a much HIGHER rate but with much LESS damage.

 Either way, knockback is a strategic maneuver that should be used with much
 consideration. Y'see, recoiling characters can suffer extra damage if there is
 an obstacle behind them and they bump into it; and, if knockback moves a unit
 off a large height, such as the castle wall at Ostorea West, they can suffer
 tremendous fall damage.

 Units that can inherently fly do not suffer fall damage, just as characters
 who are granted flight temporarily (through equipment) do not. However, units
 that can Warp, such as ghosts or those with Warp Rings/Boots on, still CAN
 suffer fall damage. Knocking people off walls may be rather cheap, but for a
 game that basks in strategic maneuvers, equipping a shield can be worth that
 extra weight.

 Oh, and one more thing: characters cannot be recoiled onto spaces otherwise
 untraversable to them. For instance, a Ninja can water-walk and would thus
 be able to be recoiled onto Ocean panels, unlike soldiers which would simply
 be 'knocked back'...just without moving.

     PERSUASION                                                     [PRSN]

 Persuasion is another 'passive' way of defense, in which an ally unit tries
 to recruit an enemy unit onto the team. If it's successful, that enemy unit
 can become a permanent ally member (guest for that battle). However, if the
 persuasion fails, a counterattack is suffered. Lowering the target's HP'll
 increase the chance of inviting that unit into the ranks.

 Ally units have easier times persuading if they are the same class as the
 target. So, a Soldier can persuade enemy soldiers better than, say, a witch.
 The 'Arbitration' emblem gives a bonus to future persuading, and the 'Vixen's
 Whisper' emblem is obtained when an ally female unit recruits an enemy male
 unit. A Vixen's Whisper is also needed to become a witch, by the way.

 However, some units cannot be recruited no matter the odds stacked in one's
 favor. Naturally, units marked with 'Leader' status (i.e. bosses) cannot be
 recruited under any circumstances, nor can special enemies like:

  • Duke Knight         • Daemon          • Dark Angel       • Bandit
  • Dark Stalker        • Predator        • Hell Gigantes

 I'm sure there are more non-playable characters, but the above ones are found
 naturally in the game.

     SUMMON SPELLS                                                  [SMNS]

 Summons are special spells that have high MP costs but attack multiple times
 on multiple targets. However, their usage is better for single targets since
 the damage is centralized on that one person. These magicks are special enough
 that only some certain classes can use them. I'd call them by name, but to
 preserve spoiler-free atmosphere, I'll just go by class:

 • Sorceress      • High Priest     • Shaman        • Summoner     • Witch <3

 The normal class 'Siren' can also use summons, and is restricted to females
 only, so that's another option. You'll have to go through the paeans of class
 ascension to get one, though. LICHES CANNOT SUMMON. Just thought I'd say that.

 Oh, and one weird thing about summons. If a summon is used and there aren't
 any enemies in range, it'll attack the summoner! Seriously, watch out!

     MP AND SP                                                      [MNDS]

 MP and SP are the 'currency' by which abilities are used. Magic abilities and
 summons use strictly MP, and those are restricted mostly to special units.
 Some demi-human classes (Hawkman) and monsters use special skills, which is
 where SP is used. Again, they ONLY use SP.

 The dichotomy between MP and SP is this: MP can be recovered naturally or by
 synthetic means (items), while SP can only be recovered naturally.

     TERRAIN CHANGE                                                 [TRRN]
     _____________________________________________________________________
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

 Inclement weather can change the terrain, and this applies to quite a lot of
 battle sites. There are two types, being rain and snow. Here's the lowdown.

 • RAIN - Rain on its own doesn't affect anything; however, continuous rain
          in battlefields with bodies of water can rise 1s (step), washing out
          the previous dry land. Units that are in the water at this time will
          still be there, but if they are not a water-type creature, will have
          lowered attack power. This change is often temporary, as waterlines
          can recede eventually. When this happens, it happens between turns.
          Some terrain types, such as 'Plain', will undergo elemental changes
          at this time with any positive number gaining +5 resistance and the
          negative numbers losing 5 more resistance. Flooding can only happen
          once (1s) and no more.

 • SNOW - Snow is a seasonal occurance and happens on most battlefields. Note
          that this CANNOT happen during battle. Instead of attack power being
          reduced, movement is reduced. Enemies that can fly, warp, or snow-
          -walk (thanks to Snow Boots) can bypass its effect. Indoor b'fields,
          ones with lava, and towns will often now reflect this change. This
          can be a problem for treasure-hunters, since terrain underneath is
          still the same, i.e. one has to melt and then burn Plain panels to
          check underneath. The problem is, when it's snowing, panels can be
          re-covered with snow again. This makes treasure-hunting in places
          like Ostorea an exercise in annoyance. Use global weather-affecting
          spells like Clear Day to make the sun come out.

 One more cool thing about snow. If there is a light snowfall and the support
 ability 'Summon Tempest' is used, it changes the weather into a venerable
 blizzard!

 Terrain bonuses result in better elemental defense if you're looking out in
 that area, or can leave you with less defense against a certain element. To
 find out the defenses in-game, hover the movement cursor over a piece of the
 geography and it can tell its defenses in the upper-right corner. Also, use
 the select button to see the name of the terrain. I won't list where all the
 terrain types can be found, 'cause that'd just be overkill. Enjoy!

 EXP is gained through taking action in battle, whether it be using items,
 attacking, or counterattacking. This applies to friend or foe, mind you. When
 one hundred (100) experience is obtained on a unit, s/he will go a 'level-up'
 and have augmented stats in accordance with their class. As levels increase,
 attacking low-level units results in lower EXP, which forces more action vs.
 harder units to gain better experience. The maximum level is fifty (50).

 In addition, new special abilities (ones that use SP) can be obtained, unlike
 normal human-type classes which never learn new class abilities. As stats rise
 and certain quotas are met, magicks will broaden their range. Some start
 at one target and raise to a plus-shaped (+) area that can hit five panels at
 once, for instance.

 Status, or the current health of a unit, may change when support spells, 
 attack spells, or special abilities are used. Units marked as a 'Leader' are
 immune to all status effects, and this includes Alphonse. The following can
 be inflicted on everyone else:

 • PETRIFY  - The unit turns to stone and can take no further action during the
              battle. A 'game over' occurs if all units become petrified, which
              is a rare occurance.

 • PARALYZE - The character becomes temporarily incapacitated and cannot take
              action, nor can it counterattack. Since the unit's defenses are
              lowered, they also take damage much easier. It recovers naturally
              and may recover quickly or slowly, depending on a random chance.
              A character cannot recover DURING a phase, only in-between.

 • SLEEP    - Sleeping is, as most games have it, temporarily incapacitating
              a character. A character cannot attack during this state and has
              lowered defensive/evasion capabilities. When damage is incurred,
              the unit wakes up, unlike paralysis which remains even if damage
              is taken. There's a relatively high chance of it wearing off on
              its own, too, at least in comparison to paralysis.

 • CHARM    - Moves like Fascination can inflict this status, where an enemy
              unit (or ally, depending on who uses it) temporarily changes
              sides and attacks its friends. It generally has a short duration
              and can recover naturally, or after receiving damage.

 • CONFUSE  - Confusion makes a character's brain fall out of whack, and acts
              like 'Charm' in a way. Unfortunately, the unit becomes out of
              control and attacks enemy and ally alike, often randomly, until
              it wears off or s/he receives damage.

 • POISON   - Poison eats at a character's HP at the ally/enemy phase's start,
              and does not wear off naturally. Items or magic must be used to
              remove it.

 • KO'd     - If a character's HP falls to zero (0), it will disappear from
              the battle. Guests and some storyline enemies cannot be KO'd,
              but for everyone else, they can 'die.' Only the Resurrection
              spell or Altars of Resurrection can bring them back to life.

 Ending battle also removes all of these statuses. REMEMBER: If a unit ends
 the battle KO'd, s/he will be gone FOREVER. This includes special allies!!

     ELEMENTS & ALIGNMENT                                           [LMNT]

 All units, whether they friend or foe, have an elemental alignment with one
 of six elements. They are Fire, Water, Earth, Wind, Virtue, and Bane. Opposed
 elements (fire <-> water, earth <-> wind, virtue <-> bane) do more damage to
 each other. Elements can be boosted in three ways:

 • Weapon
 • Equipment
 • Battlefield Panels

 Alignment, in the second sense, is the natural predisposition of the unit.
 This is represented by three categories, ranging from good to bad:

                        Lawful -> Neutral -> Chaos

 Although this probably won't come into play very much, some units have to
 be of a certain alignment before they can undergo a class change. Use an Urn
 of Chaos to move a unit once step closer toward 'Chaos,' and a Tomb of
 Discipline to move one step back towards 'Lawful.'

 Some classes have a built-in preference, and although the game doesn't tell
 this overtly, fighting for awhile with different weapons may make it clear.
 Fighting with these 'preferred' weapon types may make 'em perform better in
 battle, and as far as I know, here is what they are:

 • Soldier       - Swords           Anyway, these are the units that have the
 • Archer        - Bows             ability to equip weapons. Their weapons
 • Ninja         - Katana           preference is mostly based off of some

 • Valkyrie      - Spears           always appear with in game (99%), which
 • Mermaid       - Spears           to me is indicative of what they prefer
 • Dragoon       - Swords/Spears    to use. Ever see a Ninja with a Fan? No,
 • Knight        - Swords           didn't think so.
 • Angel Knight  - Rapier
 • Fairy         - Bows             Even so, it's not exactly the most sound
 • Cleric        - Stave/Wand       way to test, so if anyone knows formulae
 • Priest        - Stave/Wand       regarding this, do send it in and I'll
 • Lich          - Stave/Wand       stick it this section.
 • Warlock       - Sword
 • Swordmaster   - Sword/Katana     NOTE: If you choose 'Ideal Equip' from the

 The Mental Gauge relates to a unit's mindset and directly influences whether
 or not that unit performs well in battle. To find it, go to their status
 screen in-battle (cannot do this out of battle!) and hit the select button
 to see the individual data. Go to that rainbow-colored bar beneath the unit's
 sprite to find the Support/Fear stat. It's set at '0' out-of-battle because
 there is nothing to support/frighten it, but in-battle, this can fluctuate
 from -2 to +2.

 Obviously, the negatives indicate fear and lower that unit's performance. The
 opposite increases the unit's performance, which is tantamount to more precise
 attacks, better blocking/counterattacking, evasion, etc. Here are emblems
 that can influence the gauges:

 • CHARISMA           (+1 to ally gauges within three panels)
 • CYCLE OF LIFE      (+1 to ally zombies within three panels)
 • BLOOD REIGN        (-1 to gauge for non-undead foes within three panels)
 • EXORCIST           (-1 to gauge for enemy zombies within three panels)
 • RELIX'S EMBLEM     (Own gauge set at +2 permanently; males only)
 • RIPPLE'S EMBLEM    (Own gauge set at +2 permanently; females only)
 • GROZZ NUY'S EMBLEM (Own gauge set at +2 permanently; dragons only)

 NOTE: See Emblems section for obtaining these!

 A.k.a. Biorhythm. A character's luck has some degree of influence on whether
 or not s/he does well in battle. On the character status screen, inspect the
 unit's name to find out their current fortune. This will tell how well their
 biorhythm/luck is doing. If the fortune sounds good, they'll perform better
 in battle; if it's downright bad, they'll probably do poorly despite what
 they've got to work with.

 To put it simply, it's a small governing force that can help or impair units.
 This is associated with the passage of time, meaning as the months roll on a
 unit's biorhythm will change. But, I really can't explain this very well past
 that. Read Terence's Biorhythm FAQ for more information.

 Sometimes a buried treasure will be unearthed when a unit, friend or foe,
 moves onto a certain panel. A random treasure will then be obtained, and I
 believe luck/biorhythm factors into this. Either way, it can only be gotten
 once and some rare items come about this way.

 Sometimes an item will be under grass or snow, which prevents a unit from
 getting the booty. Use a fire spell to burn the terrain and cleanse it of any
 clutter in order to get to it. [Note that in snowfall, uncovered tiles can be
 re-covered by the weather.]

 Sometimes after a storyline battle, you'll obtain a 'book' that won't appear
 in the inventory. In actuality, this 'book' is a new map for the Quest Mode,
 and allows a party to fight some enemy setups. This is useful for quite a few
 reasons:

 1) Build a party's level outside of the storyline mode
 2) Earn treasures based on how fast you fulfill the winning conditions, and
    the time limit set to do so
 3) Accumulate extra funds, which is awfully hard in the storyline

     TIPS N TRICKS                                                  [TPST]

 Here's a list of tips (not covered in-depth above) that should help new and
 old players alike. If a reader has a good tip to send in here, I'll put it
 here if it's useful 'nough -- all credit, natch. Until then, all the rest are
 just ones I've thought of randomly as I play.

 • When using weapon attacks, positioning is key. Striking from behind gives
   the biggest chance of success and damage, not to mention the lowest chance
   of counterattacking/blocking. Striking head-on gives the opposite of the
   above, and isn't preferable in any situation save trying to get the Knight's
   Certificate emblem. Magic-users have the same situation to a degree, which
   can be important for summoners trying to hit high-AGL targets.

 • In Quest Mode, petrification can be a good way to quickly eliminate units
   while still achieving the "kill all enemies" goal. It won't work on the
   leaders, and foes can still cure their comrades, but in certain situations,
   it may be preferable.

 • Summons are powerful spells, but they work best when targeting only 1-2
   targets; any more than that dilutes the spell's damage by spreading it too
   thin to be significant. Naturally there are exceptions, particularly where
   foes have poor magic defense (like giants).

 • Always scan the enemy ranks for classes or equipment you might want. A
   defeated enemy only drops 1 item; an invited enemy retains all equipment
   (if s/he survives battle). Some enemies, particularly beasts, may drop
   non-equipment items like a Tome of Discipline or Urn of Chaos; these can't
   be obtained if invited. This really doesn't matter though unless they're
   able to drop, say, a Snapdragon.

 A few notes 'fore we begin:

 • Like all tactics games, there are many avenues to win the battle so there
   is no reason to stick to the walkthrough 100% of the time. It's only a...
   suggestion for the most part. Don't beat yourself up if you don't have a
   certain class/emblem yet -- just go and get it!

 • Enemy levels shown in the walkthrough are based on the author's (SGN's)
   party average. If you're lower/higher than what's projected, the average
   will change to reflect it. Bosses will usually be a couple levels ahead
   of that average, though. So why have it at all? To show what levels are
   acceptible to stand a good chance. (Guests will not level up to the party
   average, however).

 • The winning objective is to defeat all enemies/the leader unless mentioned
   otherwise; the losing condition is always the death of the ally leader
   (Alphonse) unless stated otherwise. If these conditions change, the guide
   will mention 'em in someway.

 • Enemy stats listed in each section are approximate, just as levels may be
   slightly off depending on one's team's own levels. The difference isn't as
   impacting as it would be in Tactics Ogre (SNES) though, so it shouldn't
   matter too much.

 Two key players are introduced in this 'prologue' type section, being Rictor
 Lasanti and Alphonse Loeher. Alphonse is the main character and can be named
 whichever the player wishes, although the guide'll be using the default for
 obvious purposes. A fortune-teller will talk to Alphonse and, per other Ogre
 Battle games, this will influence some things later on.

 Is there any preferable choices to make in this section? Perhaps. Having Al
 start with Arbitration can make early recruiting more than a pipe dream. The
 rest of the emblems can't really compete at this stage, either. The units
 received are up to the player's style.

 Following, the ship sets sail, but not before running aground...encountering
 some bandits.

 As far as I know, this battle is impossible to lose. All enemies will start
 to target the leader (Stan the Bandit) if he's in range, while Rictor slings
 Lightning Bow shots and Heals when necessary. He's got the party upkeep in
 good hands, so this acts more like a tutorial battle, with hints being given
 when the first action is taken, if an emblem is earned, when friends attack,
 and so on. Just some tips for this rather easy battle:

 • Protect your unit's back! Enemies naturally try to attack from the most
   advantageous position, and there is less chance of counterattacks and the
   attack being guarded if struck from behind. Alphonse should try to attack
   from behind as well. There's no sense worrying about allies in this stage,
   however, as all are "special" and can escape unscathed (due to a certain
   equippable) should their HP hit zero.

 • The leader is Lv. 3, meaning any low-level unit that attacks him will get
   more experience than normal. Try to have Alphonse get a few hits in, 'cause
   most allies will be gunning for him as well. In comparison, Alphonse gets
   about 6 EXP for successfully attacking a Lv. 1 Unit; he'll get about 18ish
   for hitting Stan. This applies to counterattacks too, so retaliations can
   get help on this end (which is good since Al won't have enough movement to
   hit Stan until Turn 3). Dealing a killing blow to a higher-levelled unit
   gives roughly 200% bonus EXP.

 • If an enemy is defeated, they'll often leave an 'item bag' behind. Should
   you see one, snag it! They often contain permanent stat-raising items or
   useful curative medicines. Enemies can take them as well, so try to improve
   the inventory if you find one. Note that bags laying around at the end of
   battle are RETAINED and added to the 'War Trophy' list -- it's not like
   Tactics Ogre (SNES) where there's fear of any spoils being left behind.

 Some scenes later, Alphonse joins up with an ex-Rananculus Knight (Ivanna) and
 they both head towards the nearby town of...

 • Unlike in Tactics Ogre, Knights can use low-level virtue spells, making
   Ivanna a decent healer early on. She'll often hang back and take care of
   Al's upkeep, letting him be more than a little reckless if he so desires.
   Note that guests won't obtain experience or emblems, so it's just as well
   she lets the protagonist get more of the experience.

 • On Turn #3, Rictor and Orson show up in the eastern part of the map, which
   levels the playing field, not to mention adds another healer (although he
   mostly spams Lightning Bow due to his lame movement). Basically, these two
   may end up doing much of the dirty work!

 • Other advice? Stay on terrain that gives penalties to lightning-type techs,
   such as Stone Floor or Ground. Oddly enough, being in the water doesn't
   give any lightning bonuses...although it won't matter too much here.

 • There's a Dragon Shield buried at tile [15,2], in the eastern section near
   the barrels. It can't be gotten this early without a flying unit (fairy,
   hawkman) or water-walker (ninja).

 By the way, at the [7, 12] coordinate, it's possible to unearth a Claymore or
 Great Bow, so feel free to use Training for that purpose. NOTE: While most
 maps can be replayed in Training, some are one-time-only and can't be -- it's
 best to collect rarities when the chance is given. [This won't be applicable
 for awhile, though.]

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 After the battle, Rictor and Alphonse meet up and our dark-haired hero will
 be given [3500 GOTH] to recruit some troops. On the world map, the Shop,
 Organize, and Training options will now be possible. The units that were
 decided back at the fortune-teller will now be in the party as well.

 Other info at this time:

 • Lutra, a southern map dot, is now open for fighting random enemies. It's
   not the same map as the game's first battle, though. They're good for
   experience, but don't forget to have your soon-to-be priest healing people,
   or people eating stat-boost items (like Crown of Intellect) for a leg-up on
   getting to those future classes.

 • When hiring units, there's always male and female soldiers and a third type
   that varies. If hawkmen are available, definitely get one -- they can fly
   and are better than many early classes (like archers). However, don't buy
   any garbage units like the octopus, which sucks at land-battling. Now's a
   great time to start making Deneb, the unique witch from many Tactics Ogre
   games, too. [See her file in the class section for more info.] Just make
   sure any hawkmen invited are of the wind element, which gives 'em a bonus
   to their special ability come Lv10.

 • A few soldiers are obtained automatically in accordance with how the
   fortune-telling section went way back when. If there's a ninja available,
   get that Dragon Shield by training in Scabellum! If y'can get a Claymore
   from the other treasure tiles, it can be a good way to get the Berserk
   emblem early on.

 • Alphonse and any new male soldier should change to Beast Tamer, then back
   to whatever they were normally. The reason being that the class is available
   early but becomes permanently blocked once 5 animals are slain, which sucks
   for those who wanted to sample all classes. [Females can't be beast tamers,
   but can be dragon tamers instead, although the class isn't accessible this
   early. The same prevention strategy applies, though.]

 Before heading to the next destination, outfit the party with the basic equips
 that some may lack. If you need money, remember persuasion! Invite people into
 the party at the end of battle, strip them of their equipment, and kick 'em to
 the curb. Sell their basic junk to get some extra goth. Shields in particular
 will benefit some fighter units, as well as anyone who can become a Knight
 (for extra healing).

 When ready, head north to the grassy knoll.

 GUESTS ---: Lv. 4 Ivanna  | 155 |
                           |_____|

 • The most notable thing here is that no foes have magic-casting ability,
   so terrain won't factor in as much as previous or forthcoming stages (at
   least where elements are concerned). This means sticking together in a big
   group is actually advised, letting proximal units guard flanks/backsides,
   and also provide healing without trekking across the map.

 • One soldier has a Long Sword, which can good to obtain through persuasion
   in lieu of digging up a Claymore at previous maps.

 • Ivanna will heal if necessary but it's quite possible for one unit to get
   swamped by 4+ enemies and get in critical health. Make sure to have a good
   supply of healing items on-hand, and have any mage units keep their distance
   to avoid such a circumstance.

 • Archers rely on high ground to gain the advantage -- their attack ranges
   decrease if they try to shoot higher than where they stand. Driving Cressida
   and any other archer downhill, by blocking off routes back uphill and by
   pushing them with shields (etc.), while taking the high ground oneself is
   always a good strategy.

 Ivanna also reminds Alphonse that persuading enemy units is an alternative to
 decapitating them, and keep that in mind if you find the forces a bit
 overwhelming. Whittle their HP down and try to invite 'em with a person of
 similar class.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 After making camp, the choice to let Ivanna join the troops permanently comes
 up. Choose " Yes. Let's go together." to get her in the party; decline her
 invitation by picking the alternative. She may or may not be the first actual
 healer obtained, so it's always good to take her with. Just note that she's
 a knight by storyline purposes; she doesn't have the requisite stats to _BE_
 the class yet. Thus, if you change her from knight to something else, she
 won't be able to change back until her stats are just right.

 • [GLYCINIA SIGHTING #1] can now happen at Vespa, but only before going to
   Formido. She's a special fairy who happens to get in heapin' helpings of
   trouble quite often. Her equipment changes depending on when she's invited
   into the party, with her best stuff coming later, so inviting her now's
   not too useful. Her equipment now is Short Bow, Ice Chain, Dragon Gem, and
   Glass Pumpkin -- not too awesome. She always comes with a pumpkin, by the
   way. [This random battle appears 100% of the time at Vespa, so if y'don't
   want to do it, y'can't fight there until later!]

 • It's possible to dig up a Glass Pumpkin in Vespa at tile [06,03], which is
   a good accessory to have. It's part of a special shop quest as well, so
   having it is a lot better than, say, throwing it away or selling it to the
   wrong vendor!

 • Check to see if any females can become Dragon Tamers yet. This class is
   pretty useless unless you're going to have a dragoncentric party, but like
   it's "sister" class Beast Tamer, it's quite easy to get locked out of it
   without knowing. In this case, killing even one dragon prevents someone 
   from using it! Change now, change back, and rest easy that the unit hasn't
   been prevented from the try-all-classes emblem...yet?

 Head towards Formido when ready.

 This can be a fun map to play due to the height. Note that the leader is a
 knight but doesn't know Heal -- sucker!

 • Units travel downhill easily; going up can be quite difficulty for slower
   classes, however, like mages. Ninja, with their high movement rate, and
   hawkmen, who can fly over obstacles, are ridiculously useful on this map.

 • Play opportunistically! A good example is using the shield's knockback
   coupled with the castle wall where most fighting takes place. Knocking a
   unit 11s will almost assuredly kill them, which can be a good way to get
   those pesky archers, wizards, or even Grimal out of the way. If they manage
   to live (depends on levels), then they're stuck below and can be picked off
   by ranged units. 

 • The wizard and cleric drop the Crag Crush and Cleanse spells, respectively,
   and neither is buyable at this time. Definitely don't slay Grimal until
   they're dead! [A hawkman archer can easily claim high ground here!]

 • One odd thing I've seen is that the cleric seems to prioritize the leader's
   health over other comrades. If separated far enough, she may forego healing
   allies altogether and take the low route to get closer to Grimal. This is
   definitely stupid AI at work, and makes her a sitting duck. I guess they
   don't teach smarts in cleric school... [Don't have a dedicated healer yet?
   Try to invite her, then.]

 • There is a Dragon Gem Sword buried at tile [12,12], the high corner opposite
   the origin [0,0]. It's quite annoying to get without using a ninja or
   hawkman, but it's managable. Unfortunately it's just a thrusting sword, but
   some classes -- like knights or dragon tamers -- have them as preferable
   weapons.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Following some scenes, Alphonse will be in Cybil Alinda's employ, and the
 route east to Ardea is now open.

 • The Numida Chronology book obtained for defeating Formido can be accessed
   through the Quest Mode option. Here, the player can play a certain map and
   win prizes (for use in the main game) depending on the performance. It's a
   good way to get rare items, either for use or for extra cash. [N.C. has no
   usage fee, so there's no reason _not_ to try it a few times!]

 • Shops have been updated with new items (Long Sword!) and area-effect magic,
   so outfit the team accordingly.

 • Glycinia can still be recruited at Vespa at this time, but her equipment
   hasn't changed so there's no reason to pursue her yet. Her time will come...

 GUESTS ---: Lv. 6 Cybil   | 155 | 
                           |_____|

 • This is a watery swamp, so characters with trudging/walking type movement
   will always lag behind, no matter how Cybil orders 'em not to. The water
   level will also rise 1s during rainstorms, making things even deeper! Only
   ninja and hawkmen will find navigation easy here.

 • The enemies are all flying types, which means surround-and-pound strategies
   aren't that helpful, mages always have to watch their back, and they beat a
   fast retreat (making pursuing a pain). 100%-success spells, like Thunder
   Blade and Ice Field, are quite helpful here.

 • Cybil's Thunder Blade skill can hit five panels thanks to her high INT, so
   she can quickly deteriorate clumped foes (like the hawkmen who advance
   first). Despite any formed strategy, it's likely she'll start murdering --
   don't let her rob everyone of experience!

 • One hawkman drops a Sorceror's Cup, which permanently increases a unit's
   max MP. It's unlikely another foe will steal it, but err on the side of
   caution anyway. Also, two hawkmen have yet-unbuyable Chain Mail, if inviting
   them's an option...

 • If one's leveled enough to make the enemies Lv10+, they'll have obtained
   their class-specific moves: Thunder Arrow (Hawkmen), Windstorm (Griffins).
   These can be quite annoying, especially the latter which may hit in a plus-
   -shaped AoE.

 Either way, the recommended course of action is to stay at the land's end, 
 where everyone starts out. This way, when the water rises, everyone can still
 manage to avoid the power-down effect of being in the stuff. Cybil is a guest,
 so naturally she won't follow Alphonse's command -- use everyone else to plug
 up the corner so that the flying-types can't sidle in and back-attack ya. Any
 time you can force enemies to attack from the water, remember their defensive
 powers will ALSO decrease! Human types should fight from the land always,
 unless water-walking is enabled.

 It's possible to just "rush" forward, using stepping stones as bases, but in
 reality, this just sets up situations where the hawkmen can surround a unit;
 or, the rising water level makes movement even harder (no preventative measure
 available yet!). Going on the warpath from the get-go just exacerbates the
 battle; let the foes seek your team out to make it all easier.
 
 One of the Hawkmen drops a 'Sorceror's Cup,' which permanently increases a
 unit's MP. Don't leave the battle without it...not like Cybil will let anyone
 out of her Thunder Flare's sights. Don't let an enemy pick it up, though...

 Nothing too important. To Urodela!

 • If one's obtained Deneb by now, the secret shop in Scabellum permanently
   opens (i.e. if she's killed or dismissed, it remains). It sells some rare
   items, like the candy equipment and certain accessories.

 • Ninja have high AGI and large movement areas, letting them encircle and
   gang up on weaker units. The best course of action is to hit them with a
   debilitating status effect (sleep, paralysis) and then gang up on THEM so
   they can't escape to heal -- a tactic that will start emerging as the game
   goes on. Non-projectile magic, like Thunder Blade and Crag Crush, never
   misses and is a good option, too.

 • The Witch here can inflict charm (Fascination) and sleep (Slumber Mist), so
   taking her out makes the battle that much easier. She also has a so-far-
   -unbuyable Spell Robe, which might be worth inviting her for. Note that
   people emulating the game may run into the Fascination glitch, where if it's
   used successfully, the game simply freezes irreperably. This applies to
   Deneb's Temptation tech, too.

 • One ninja has a Necklace of Resist, which turns her magical damage, both
   dealt and received, to zero (0). This is an excellent item for units that
   can't use magic, such as dragons or other beasts, so definitely kill her
   before the day's done. Since the boss Sitri rushes headlong into inevitable
   demise, it may be necessary to heal him to reach the far side.

 • Treasure-wise, there's a 100%-drop Hyacinth Fan at the lone [3,13] pond
   tile, which can be quite damaging. In one game, my Lv9 earth-element ninja
   was doing 100 damage with it...and it's wind-elemental! All these can be
   obtained in Training, of course.

AFTERMATH

 After battle, Cybil and Alphonse discuss their options inside a fisherman's
 shack. This is the part where the story splinters permanently into two paths,
 as the answer to Cybil's question changes the allies you get later on, as
 well as the special equipment that's available. When she asks, here is what
 to say depending on what road you wish to travel:

 Path A --> "I've no better ideas..."
 Path B --> "It doesn't seem right."

 Alphonse will head towards Bison, the "Paradise of the Beasts" if he is on
 Path A; or, if he's on Path B, will choose to head west through Sufrir near
 Solea.

 Unlike Sufrir on Path B, this map's quite boring and unfun to replay...

 • The terrain here puts up more of a fight than the foes, with numerous
   water tiles to box in mages and swampy tiles that give movement penalties
   to just about everyone. Only floating/flying types will be free of the
   land's grip, making them great for surrounding or pursuits. On the flipside,
   the enemy dragons suffer penalties, too.

 • It's not a bad idea to hang back near the starting point, forcing the foes
   to fight on dry ground. The reasons why this is helpful should be self-
   -explanitory.

 • Don't fight in the water if possible -- one incurs attack/defense penalties.
   This also applies to enemies, too, making them easier to gang up on.

 Defeating all the foes finishes the battle.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Two things before the next fight.

 • Shiven, Cybil's ninja helper, asks to join the party after beating Bison.
   Pick option A ("Sorry. I said to much.") to let him help, or the alternative
   to do the opposite. While he's a special character in a way, he's won't be
   particularly powerful as a ninja, so it may help to change classes now or
   later, if y'wanna use him. He does come with the rare Kagari-bi katana,
   though, so that's always a reason to let him join.

 • Make sure to equip that Dragon Eyes accessory on an important unit, like a
   healer, since it prevents all status abnormalities. Remember that Alphonse's
   Leader designation already blocks negative statuses, so he won't need it.

 Instead of going through Rana, west of Urodela, on Path B, Alphonse and his
 crew take the southern route through Sufrir, east of Solea. While passing
 through Eleanor's church's area, she has a conversation with Al which has
 future repercussions.

 A: "Of course I'll be back."
 B: "I make no promises..."

 Answering correctly -- in this case, to fall in love with Eleanor -- will
 result in a unique item (Circlet of Wisdom) later on. Answering incorrectly
 results (later) in a crappy Orb or Warp Ring, neither of which is unique. So,
 get those heartstrings snappin', folks. ^___^

 A rather fun battle in a replayable map.

 • Dragons are a new foe. They get great HP and STR gains, plus have a great
   elemental breath attack that inflicts a status effect. As their INT grows,
   the breath changes from one panel to four (T-shaped AoE). Because they're
   quite powerful, it helps to use magic and ranged weapons to weaken 'em
   before the close-range fighters do the coup de grace. 

 • Gremlins, by contrast, are less imposing and are basically "evil fairies" --
   high AGI ensures physical attacks miss a lot, and as fliers, they can get
   up to typically unreachable nooks to rain down arrows. Like usual, there's
   three good ways to deal with 'em: (1) 100%-success magic (2) status effects
   that debilitate long enough for attackers to bring the smackdown (3) other
   fliers, like hawkmen, who can be good as pursuit units.

 • Once the dragons' range have been identified, spread out if required, so
   that they can hit only one unit with their breath attacks. This helps
   immensely, particularly if they reach a weaker mage unit. Also, being the
   trudging type means they can't get up the cliffs -- any flying unit or
   good jumper can hide up there and take potshots!

 • Make sure there's a dedicated healer with Cleanse about, as poison and
   paralysis aren't going to be the life of the party. Item healing can be
   done also, if needed.

 • Although it's unlikely to be worthwhile, if the team's powerleveled enough
   that the Dragoon class is open, one of those can occasionally get an instant
   kill on dragons (weapon attack only). Not only is this a good elimination
   tactic but it makes getting the War God and Berserk emblems a cinch.

 • Remember that any female who slays a dragon is permanently blocked from the
   Dragon Tamer class! If so-and-so hasn't sampled it yet, do so before battle
   so they're not completely screwed out of the "Ripple's Emblem"!

 • Orson doesn't have a Transferring Stone equipped like most guests, so if
   he dies and isn't revived (Altar of Resurrection) before battle ends, he's
   permanently lost!

 There's also an Ice Wand buried at the clifftop [11,16] tile, although a
 flying unit will be required to get it this early.

AFTERMATH [SUFRIR]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Picking "Sorry I doubted you" allows Orson to permanently join the troops,
 while "I can't allow that" dismisses him. Arena is the next stop.

 • Orson will be noticeably weaker than homegrown units, perhaps because he's
   got an archer build. Try to boost his STR, by the Centurion/Veteran Soldier
   emblems or Sword Emblem items, to make him more viable. If not, he'll be
   hitting 10-20 damage on most enemies...quite piddly.

 • Shops have updated once again to allow a bit more items and spellbooks. Of
   particular interest is the Clear Sky ability, which is typically useless but
   can be quite worthwhile in the next map.

 • [GLYCINIA SIGHTING #2] is now available at Sufrir, although like before,
   the main incentive for inviting her is to the rare equipment she comes with.
   She currently has a Dragon Gem Sword, Hard Leather, Cassowary Feather, and
   Glass Pumpkin -- not exactly worthwhile at this point.

 The map is played differently, depending on which path the player takes. On
 Path A, a cleric and his cronies will be harassing a mermaid (Minerva), who
 then becomes a guest that assists. [Her survival isn't imperative, however,
 and if killed, she drops a Water Ring.] On Path B, Alphonse's team will fight
 a bunch of mermaids and their aquatic friends, where the goal is to simply
 slay everyone. Tips:

 • Bringing someone with Clear Sky magic helps a lot in this fight, especially
   on Path B -- it robs the aquatic types of extra sea panels and lets wading
   units move around better (albeit slightly). However, on Path A, where one's
   ally is Minerva, flooding can actually help -- all foes get penalized in
   the water, and fortifying near the start is a boon to allies. [The weather
   often rains constantly, so there's often no reason to induce a storm via
   Summon Tempest/Coral Harp. Flooding typically occurs after the first turn!]

 • [Path B:] Priority should be given to the mermaids who, at Lv10, have a
   sleep-inducing Lullaby technique that can be quite annoying (given how many
   there are). Only Minerva is likely to have enough INT to have the full panel
   effect, though, if there's any upside. Thunder Arrow & Strangling Tentacles
  (which may inflict confusion) are less important but still a threat.

 • On either path, the starting point is the same and all entrances can be
   blocked to prevent trudging/wading units from entering, not to mention the
   "island" is safe from flooding. Fortifying here is a good idea on Path A,
   where all enemies get an attack/defense penalty (and Minerva is in her
   natural habitat), but works more as a preemptive strategy on Path B, where
   going into the water with slow units is a bad idea.

 • Water units do better in their natural habitat, so the best circumstances
   have both them and the attacker on dry land. The opposite (both in water)
   is a situation to avoid, if possible. Bombarding them with ranged weapons
   and magic is always fine, though.

 • This is one battle where it's easy to get enemies to clump together for
   area-effect magic. This happens naturally, but by making enemies waste their
   turns curing status effects, they move into a nice proximity as well. Note
   that enemies have "infinite" healing and restorative items, so this can go
   on for quite some time. [On Path A, status effects are a good way to make
   Damiel concentrate on alleviating them, rather than using Heal Plus.]

 • [Path A:] Surrounding foes is a great idea, as Damiel (cleric) has the Heal
   Plus spell early, letting him heal many adjacent allies. If surrounded, he
   won't bother to help his comrade, though -- that would mean assisting the
   enemy.

 • [Path A:] Cassini the Knight can't be invited, because his semi-significance
   as an acquaintance of Alphonse's prevents that. This happens at least once
   more later on; just an aside, mostly.

 • This is just personal experience (on Path A), but I couldn't uncover any
   buried treasures during mandatory play. If this is the case for a reader,
   they should be available if Training's done there.

 On Path A, defeating Damiel ends battle; on Path B, killing everyone does the
 same thing. The latter has better regular enemy drops (Ice Shield) so don't
 end battle prematurely -- get those things first!

 • Like the previous battle, this map has a lot of water tiles and can be
   flooded during rainstorms (much to trudging units' chagrin). Thus, make
   sure someone has Clear Sky magic in order to change the weather, should it
   take a turn for the worst. [Unlike previous map, it doesn't start out
   rainy; pay attention for it later.]

 • It's not a bad idea to wait on the starting island and make the enemies
   come to everyone, hopefully drawing them on dry land to surround-and-pound
   'em. Mermaids will almost certainly have Lullaby by this point (if they're
   at Lv10) and Aerial may have Cheer as well, although it probably won't see
   much use. They'll probably have bloomed into 5-panel (plus-shaped) AoEs,
   too, so try not to stand so close to minimize their effects.

 • Due to the wideness between stepping stones, it's good to play this map with
   ninja and hawkmen, who can quickly reach the farther, drier cliff and use
   it as a base of operations. Mermaids are "snow-trudging" characters, so they
   can go one space up or two spaces down -- basically they suck at climbing
   rocky terrain, so they won't be as much of a problem with lots of space
   between.

 • Remember that being in water (or on water, in ninjas' case) gives penalties
   to attack and defense, so any land-based unit -- which should be everyone
   unless an octopus or mermaid was recruited -- should try to attack from on
   land. The inverse is true, too: water units get attack/defense penalties on
   land. Area-effect magic doesn't matter too much on this end, though.

 • Using status effects to make the mermaids waste their turns, or clump to-
   -gether, is a pretty fun strategy, and can buy precious time for getting
   into position. Just watch out for fairies, who'll use their long-range
   movement to quickly alleviate the statuses!

 • There's an awesome Ice Blade buried at tile [16,01], and it's definitely
   worth seeking out here or during Training. Even if there's no water-type
   units to use it, it's still better than Claymores and Long Swords -- AND
   it's one-handed! Shields can be back in action for those Claymore users.

 • Because this battle can be long -- not just due to terrain, but because of
   long attack animations -- it may be best to just cut through the crap and
   KO Aerial after the best spoils are obtained. 

 Battle ends when Aerial's KO'd or brought to critical health.

   Answer "Alright" to allow her presence, or "I appreciate it, but..." to
   keep her out. It's true she won't be that useful in the plentiful land
   battles coming up, but at very least, she has some useful equipment to
   pass around on other allies.

 After visiting Cybil in Urodela, it's time to pay another trip to Eleanor in

 After all the rainy battles, there's finally another land-based one. Whee!

 • The map terrain plays into the allies' advantage: Alphonse starts atop the
   hill, and placed allies are on the steps leading there. Only Eleanor is
   begins away from there but will backpedal when given the chance. Because
   there's only two paths to the church's door, mages can rain destruction
   from up there without repercussion; or, waste foes' time as they endlessly
   pursue, by constantly keeping one's distance.
 
 • Dragoons can occasionally get instant-kill physical attacks on dragons, so
   any allied dragons one may have should stay clear away -- no sense in
   wasting precious Altars of Resurrection on something that can be avoided,
   aye? Also, they have great defense so using magic or attacks boosted by
   Molten Blade (support magic) can work to great effect.

 • Besides the mandatory Fafnir drop, two other great items can be found here:
   (1) the unique Sherwood Hat can only be obtained in this battle, and is part
   of the Sherwood equipment set (2) the Blue Dragon's "Dragon Eyes" accessory
   fortifies INT and prevents all abnormal statuses, an excellent addition
   for any unit who should always be fit for duty, like a healer. "Dragon Eyes"
   is not a unique accessory, but is still part of a Dragon equipment set that,
   when equipped, gives a unit a dragon breath attack of their element!

 • A funny note is that a hawkman (or other flying unit) can alight to the
   church's roof and rain down arrows on pretty much anyone. Probably won't 
   be too useful but it's still viable if battle's closer to the building than
   map's center.

 • Remember that any female who kills a dragon is permanently blocked from the
   (albeit lame) Dragon Tamer class, and thus Ripple's Emblem. If y'haven't
   tried the class yet just to get around this circumstance, do so before
   battle. This'll be the last time it's mentioned on this path.

 • One last caveat: the battle's objective isn't to defeat all foes or Karcist,
   but protect Eleanor. This means if her health bottoms out, it's game over!
   Always have someone waiting in the wing in case the dragons manage to get
   in some good hits! She typically won't get too far away from Alphonse's
   position, but y'never know... It doesn't help that she starts without a
   weapon.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Following, Eleanor can join tag along (not as playable unit) by picking "OK.
 Let's go together." instead of "If you're so serious...". As stated before,
 picking the options that kindle a relationship with her will give a great
 item down the line, so when in doubt, pick option A!

 • Shops now carry better equipment, with some new spellbooks (Haste, Heal
   Plus) being ones that'll pay off bigtime in the future. Faith and Exorcism
   are also usable coming up but don't have to be bought now.

 One of the more simple mandatory battles, the allies start at the volcano's
 highest corner with the enemies starting far below. There're lava rivulets to
 use as natural borders and, better yet, nothing can land on 'em besides those
 that float. Just a few helpful hints here:

 • The terrain's gaps and lava rivulets ensure natural borders, with nothing
   able to cross them 'cept fliers and those who can jump the gaps. Obviously,
   standing at the border can prevent foes from leaping over, which is a good
   way to keep dragons at bay. Speaking of which, that Fafnir sword can see
   some good use here with its dragon-slaying bonus.

 • Eleanor will almost assuredly go off on her own down the left border and
   try to scrap with some enemies. The Hawkmen and Gremlins may go after her,
   so try to send a Knight or someone with her to act as a healer. She WON'T
   heal herself in critical condition, so she's really using that Transferring
   Stone as a crutch.

 • The "Grueza's Influence" support spell can help here, strengthening panels'
   water terrain bonuses and weakening fire ones. It only helps by +5, but when
   the monsters are either of fire alignment or have fire-elemental skills, you
   may find some use for it.

 • The Cerberus monster makes its debut here, and has a fire-type Mesmerize
   attack that can inflict sleep. Make sure to have a healer on hand in case
   someone's caught napping.

 • As shown previously in Sufrir, gremlins have fairylike agility and can
   move long distances, as well as float over lava. If y'wanna hit 'em, it's
   often best to use 100%-success magic.

 • On the subject of rarities, the fiery Volcaetus spear is buried at [02,02]
   in the corner lava pool, and one Hawkman carries a Thunder Shield. Said
   shield can be obtained in Quest Mode but there's no reason to pass it up
   now, eh? Use someone good at invitation (Arbitration emblem?) for the deed.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 • Beating this map opens the "Epic of Tinea" book for Quest Mode. Unlike the
   first book, this one has an entry fee but the rewards are greater...if y'can
   set a reasonable goal and hit it spot-on!

 During the scenes with Berevra, she poses a question to Alphonse about why
 he wants the spear. If one wants to obtain the Circlet of Wisdom unique item
 from Eleanor later, the 2nd (lower) option must be chosen. It's probably the
 easiest step to screw up.

 Following, the first chapter ends. Eleanor can join the party permanently
 (pick "I misunderstood...") or left behind ("No, I can't allow that). She's
 worth taking with, just for the fact she learns a unique skill, Star Tiara, at
 170 INT -- it does global holy damage to all enemies and banishes undead
 instantly. Pretty potent stuff, if she's raised right. There's a downside but
 y'can cross that bridge when it arrives.

 The mandatory map dot at Vespa is the next stop, but there's a optional quest
 to visit Blete, a town burned down 15 years prior, and that takes place past
 Gryllus.

 • [GLYCINIA SIGHTING #3] now occurs at Aquila, where she carries a Short Bow,
   Peregrine Mail, Dragon Gem, and Glass Pumpkin. The special mail can be won
   in Quest Mode so don't bother recruiting her now, either.

 This is the forest where Rictor's team went through in their attempt to reach
 Formido...and, well, we know how badly they got sent packing. Before one even
 tries to take on this place, have a Cleric/Priest on-hand. Give them these
 abilities:

 • Heal Plus (heal 1-5 panels)
 • Exorcism  (Instantly kill undead)
 • Faith     (Instantly kill any undead waiting to be revived)

 Greasy Boots also helps healers A LOT (lets them water-walk). One healer is
 recommended, although two would be best -- if y'don't have a readymade cleric
 on-hand, Eleanor fits the bill nicely, particularly since she's already immune
 to status effects.

 Okay, you've decided to undertake this place. I wouldn't be lying if I said it
 was one of the more annoying battles for two reasons, being that undead revive
 automatically if left alone; and, that more undead enemies trickle into battle
 after awhile. So, we'll need to work quick. Two healers makes this battle more
 palatable, but with cost issues, one _should_ suffice. Here are the hints to
 make this battle easier:

 • The 'undead trick' where healing things do damage does not work in this
   game, sorry. It'll either heal 0 or have 0% chance of hitting, depending
   on what you use (or both!). However, item healing still has the inverse
   effect, so weaker units can simply sling a Healing Seed to deal mucho pain.
   In fact, for as degraded as the undead units' DEF is, item healing 'em to
   death may be the most viable strategy!

 • Flying/teleporting units are great for this level, as they can quickly get
   into enemy territory, get surrounded, and escape, leaving the foes in a
   great Exorcism formation. This level may go very fast with successful mass
   exorcisms by this method.

 • There is a river running through the entire map, cutting it in two. Ninja
   and those with Greasy Boots can make this thing a bit easier, but anyone
   else will probably get bogged down eventually. There's a ford spot upriver
   but that take awhile. No matter what, at all costs, DO NOT LET THE RIVER
   FLOOD! Have a Witch [etc.] use the 'Clear Sky' spell when it rains to ensure
   the battlefield remains unchanged beyond its normal capacity. It's just as
   well to bring Clear Sky and a non-status magic, since undead types are
   immune to status abnormalities!

 • New enemies only enter battle when old ones have been eradicated. Thus, it
   is best to weaken many and kill on the same turn, getting the most out of
   Faith. This also helps the next turn, because undead can revive themselves
   1-3 turns after their semi-demise.

 • To be honest, I found 'Faith' a lot more useful in this battle than any
   other spell. Exorcism works in a small 1-5 area panel, and with enemies
   'dying' all over the place, this eradicates them before they can rise up
   again. When an undead unit has its HP reduced to 0, they quit being able
   to register as a 'target,' thus making Exorcism unable to work on 'em.

 • Only Ghosts can be persuaded; don't bother with the rest. Inviting a ghost
   doesn't count as a "death," so its presence won't be replaced with someone
   else. This can make cutting through this level a bit easier...although it's
   probably not necessary with a good cleric/priest setup.

 • Eleanor learns the ability 'Star Tiara' at 170 INT. It's a Virtue spell w/
   60 ATK power backing it. Plus, it has the global (hit all) effect that can
   banish undead units. This means you can win the battle in one turn, if she
   knows it! Chances are she won't and you won't want to wait that long, but
   this is always an option.

 • Killing an undead actually counts as a 'kill' even if they don't fully
   die! This means the dishonorable 'Gibe of the Fallen Angel' can be gotten
   accidentally, and the 'Blood Reign' emblem is easily obtained! Exorcising
   undead counts only as an 'exorcism kill,' not a regular one, meaning
   a crappy healer unit can get Centurion w/o getting Gibe of Fallen Angel!

 • Enemy reinforcements always arrive after the allies' turn but before the
   enemies act. This means killing foes with counterattacks on their turn
   works into the allies' favor more than usual.

 • A Glass Pumpkin is always buried at tile [5,7], deep in the river.

 Anywho, the enemies all have HP less than their normal 'living' classes, so
 the problem lies more in killing them off faster than they can regenerate. I
 hope the tips above can help, 'cause if they don't...you may be joining the
 dead soon. There are actually two ways to win the battle, though:

 1) Destroy (eradicate) all enemies on map
 2) Reduce all eight enemies' HP to 0, thus un-registering them as targets 

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Blete is now available in the southeast.

 • Replaying Gryllus typically gives a battle with a witch and some ghosts.
   The witch seems to drop a Sorceror's Cup (Max MP +5) with astounding
   frequency, making it a good map to replay and pad that stat, especially if
   one's aiming to get a Priest/Siren early.

 • The leader Euphaire (Shaman) looks like a girl in pudgy overalls, but she
   hides fearsome abilities: Energy Transfer and the Salamander summon. The
   former gives one-fourth of her HP to another unit as MP, which weakens her
   but provides quick casting -- basically an early Fluid Magic spell. The
   latter inflicts repeated fire damage on its target(s), but unlike other
   games' summons, the damage isn't fixed on an area. This means summons work
   best when they target 1 person, as all hits are concentrated on him/her.
   Clumping together ensures Salamander doesn't reach its full potential.

 • Speaking of magic, the Warlock has it as his support spell and will use it
   to feed gobs of MP to Euphaire (for summoning). It's best to either take
   him out early on, to break the cycle, or try to invite him. Fluid Magic's
   not available until Sotavento, making it an early spell worth obtaining.

 • This is one of the few times when there's a Dragon Zombie present, and it's
   such a great unit, don't pass up this chance to invite one! Its Rotting
   Breath attack degrades equipment power (like an anti-Molten Blade) so they
   incur more damage.

 • One pitfall here is that trudging mage units (witches, clerics, etc.) can
   get 'trapped' in-between houses, forcing them to go south and around if
   they want to rejoin the fray. Do this beforehand or you can pay for it
   later, especially since it cuts into Exorcism's range.

 Defeating Euphaire finishes battle.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Following, Euphaire can join the party ("Alright.") or be left behind ("I'm
 afraid not."). The choices differ depending on if Elrik was invited at the
 other optional map, Belleza, prior to this, but either way, option A lets
 her into the fold. Either way, Euphaire is probably the first truly special
 unit obtained -- her Shaman class can use two of any spell, attack or
 otherwise, EXCEPT Virtue/Bane (although Necromancy is fine). She's quite a
 gal and you'd have to be a fool to pass 'er up! Note that the Shaman class
 replaces Siren in her lineup.

 • If you invited the Dragon Zombie, give it the Necklace of Resist from back
   in Urodela -- this makes it impervious to magic! The only way it can die
   is by banishment and the maps where that's possible are few and far between.

 • Surgat, the Beast Tamer leader, himself sucks, but mostly exists as an
   augment to his beastie friends -- anyone with three panels gets +2 on their
   mental gauge! Having the Blood Reign emblem kicks that down to +1, but
   either way, it ain't the end of the world.

 • Cockatrices debut in this fight and are the first foes who can inflict that
   annoying status...petrification! Their AoE is T-shaped like normal breath
   attacks, and they can fly, making them the number one priorities in this
   battle. If yer not gonna invite one, turn it into KFC pronto!

 • Monsters often don't pay attention to their comrades' upkeep, so using a
   lot of status effects can put the kibosh on their offensive strategy. It's
   not pretty when 7-8 monsters all use their special attacks on the same turn!
   Keep spread out to (hopefully) avoid a few people getting ganged up on.

 • If Fluid Magic was picked up off the warlock in Blete, it can be used to
   continuously fuel Euphaire's summoning strategy. Just remember to target
   1-2 monsters per spell to avoid spreading the damage too thinly.

 Surgat has a movement of 6.6 (!) and often rushes headlong towards his foes,
 which sets up an easy surround-and-pound strategy. It's worth prolonging the
 battle to get some of the better spoils (Urn of Chaos, Tome of Discipline,
 Wisdom Fruit, Cup of Life) however.

 Cassowary Feather, Hard Leather, and the great Holy Comet (whip). If you're a

 you've passed the Haena stage.

 Let's muss up this harem!

 • This battle's basically the same as Euphaire's invitation "test," except
   the terrain spires upward and is a hard climb for trudging classes. It's
   a good idea to use some ninja/hawkmen to quickly get into position.

 • One ninja has Warp Shoes, which changes movement type to teleportation. It
   need not be said that it's a great addition to any trudging class, factoring
   out height in their movement equation.

 • Speaking of which, slow-moving mages aren't going to get very far in this
   map. It's best to say towards the base and try to use whatever range is
   available to slap the ninja/valkyries around.

 • Elrik stays mostly towards the top, dropping his Fenrir summon down on
   whoever's coming up. The battle in Blete was mostly flat ground so clumping
   together was a cinch; here, the ranks may be thinner and give the summon a
   bit more bite. Have Heal Plus (etc.) ready! [Naturally, taking out Elrik's
   Fluid Magic witch makes this fight ridiculously easier. Hawkmen should be
   able to get up there pretty quick.]

 • Tile [0,11] contains a Snapdragon item, which can be used to turn a living
   character into a sword! Of course, doing this permamently loses the unit
   involved, so it's not to be taken lightly. See the Snapdragon section for
   more info on the subject. [This is the 1st location to find one, by the way]

 • Taking out the Fluid Magic witch -- such as by getting a first-turn Ray of
   Paralysis and letting a hawkman beat on her -- basically prevents Elrik from
   summoning Fenrir. Instead, he'll use his special skill 'Summon Golem' when
   it becomes available, since it's MP cost is lower. It's also funny to see
   him wait turns to use it, only to have the golem blow up prematurely en
   route... :)

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Elrik can join afterwards, although the options change a bit depending on if
 Euphaire was recruited (option A invites, option B dismisses). Is there any
 reason to leave him behind? Not really. Summoners are basically male Shamans,
 and he gets the same magic-equip pros/cons that Euphaire does, namely anything
 is fair game except Virtue/Bane (sans Necromancy). Since he's water type, the
 Fenrir summon is in good hands...

 The next destination's Naja.

 Grevis (Leader, Siren) has the Gnome summon so if you've done Belleza already,
 you'll be familiar with how the surround-'n'-pound strategy works. The far-off
 witch knows Fluid Magic and should be killed pronto, which is a double whammy
 'cause she knows Ray of Paralysis as well. It helps that Grevis has no other
 spells to fall back on, making her do nothing for turns on end. Other than
 that, power in numbers! Summons' damage is diluted when a crowd's targeted,
 and the enemy AI will almost always try to hit the most people.

 Just a few more tidbits:

 • The Cleric only has Heal Plus, so if you surround units one-by-one, she'll
   refrain from healing that person due to healing enemies as well. Also, by
   endangering the cleric's life -- such as sending a hawkman to back-attack
   her each turn -- she may prioritize her own health over comrades', making
   it easier to slay them. [Of course the knights can still heal, but those
   are single-serve.]

 • Grevis' Caldia (fan) weapon may inflict Charm if it lands a hit. Attack from
   behind or long-range to avoid this incredibly annoying occurance.

 • The leader is a fire-type using an earth-elemental summon. This mismatch'll
   mean it's not as powerful as it could be initially. But, if you wander onto
   panels that give earth boosts, it can do 20+ per hit or more. Stay on grass
   'Plain' tiles! Of course, each hit misses quite a lot, even on trudging
   low-AGI characters. ;)

 • Speaking of which, any allied summon user can hedge their damage by hitting
   debilitated units (sleep, petrify, paralysis, etc.) as their evasion is
   always zero percent.

 Ah, town battles are always the most interesting. Nichart (leader, Esquire)
 usually refrains from close-range fighting unless his AI is tipped off to a
 low-HP ally, so he goes for Ice Javelin missiles quite a lot. The rest of the
 crowd (valkyries, knights) will rush down to meet everyone while the Priest
 holds back at midfield to dole out the curatives.

 The witch here has no support role and often casts Fascination -- beware,
 especially if you're playing on an emulator where it can freeze the game if
 successful. Take her out ASAP! The other 'main mark' to look out for is the
 Priest, which is handy with a Heal Plus. This one has the 'Resurrection'
 spell, a one-of-a-kind ability and unique to Path A. Couple of other tidbits:

 • The Priest won't use Heal Plus on an enemy if it's surrounded, due to the
   AI healing the player's allies. Those pesky knights will then have to fend
   for themselves! Also, the Priest never uses Resurrection, although this may
   have roots as a gameplay mechanism (repeatedly obtaining dropped items).
   It's not a bad idea to invite instead of slaying him, so one can have an
   extra priest for the upcoming party-dividing portion (two battles from now).

 • There is a 'Snapdragon' item buried at [12,0] and is one of only four in the
   game. I won't go in-depth for what they do, but make sure that an ally unit
   claims it before an enemy stumbles upon it. (NOTE: You can get this in the
   training mode as well).

 • Random asides: The witch has a Knight's Certificate. This isn't important,
   it's just a weird emblem for a mage class... Also, if Ivanna attacks the
   leader, there's a short scene talking about her disgraced knighthood.

 If you're using Elrik/Deneb, Euphaire's Energy Transfer ability allows for 
 quick summoning, and this skirmish is pretty standard as a stalling battle.
 When Nichart's defeated, he flees and tells Alphonse to follow him to Ostorea
 Castle where he "won't leave in one piece."

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Once the reminiscing is done, Eleanor gives Alphonse her Pearl Necklace, which
 prevents status effects on the wearer. [If one tried to remove it from her
 earlier, she wouldn't allow it.] Unfortunately, Alphonse, as the Leader, is
 immune to status effects like that so it should be put on someone else who's
 vital to the frontline. Can't look a gift horse in the mouth! Additionally,
 Fluid Magic and Full Heal can now be bought in every shop. Yayee!

 March off to Haena, to the sound of war drums...

 This hilly place is the site of the 15th battle, whose enemy lineups change
 depending on the path taken back at Urodela. On Path A, the team faces off
 against Orson and his band of weak-DEF units; on Path B, the opposition's
 composed of DEF-heavy knight types, including Duke Knights [special foe-only
 unit who get 2 spell slots.] Obviously, Path B's is innately harder, but
 neither's pull-your-hair-out hard.

 • [Path B] Most units are DEF-heavy, battle-hardened vets in addition to
   spells (Duke Knights) or possible instakill physical attacks versus dragons
   (Dragoons). Because of this, using summons -or- the surround-n'-pound
   strategy helps to quickly dispose of targets, preventing them from escaping
   to heal. Use Molten Blade, too, if able.

 • If y'think the enemies will fall for the trick of advancing down to the
   lower plateau's base, think again -- they're smarter than that! That means
   a team must take the initiative in advancing since the foes simply idle
   around where they start otherwise.

 • The terrain works against mage units here, and if they want to get into the
   map's middle -- where battle no doubt centralizes -- they've got to circle
   the lower plateau. Alternately, they can stay down below and trade safety
   for flexible spell range. [Jumpier units can leap right up the cliffside.]

 • [Path B] Normally, undead units can be great distractions for the real
   threats, but here, Khodar can use Exorcism to banish them. The Necklace of
   Resist will stifle that threat but cripples most undead types...except
   Dragon Zombies. [Their skills aren't affected by the no-magic-damage rule.]

   On that subject, Dragon Zombies are the only dragons worth bringing to the
   fight -- with dragoons and their instakill physical attacks, they're 
   ineffectual at best, liabilities at worst. [DZs get by with self-reviving
   trait, but still have horrible move and might not be worth bringing either.]

 • Every unit here has a rare or yet-unbuyable drop, so it's worth slaying the
   entire team! Out of everything, only the Dragon Armor [Path B] and Forest
   Boots & Teleport spell [Path A] are truly unique, however. Basically, don't
   leave those treasure sacks laying around where an enemy can accidentally
   grab one. [Forest Boots can technically be obtained in Vs. Mode, but that's
   usually not viable for most players, so it's counted as unique in this
   walkthrough.]

 Defeat Orson or Khodar to end the fight.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Two maps now open: Ostorea Castle, the destination, and Gracula, an optional
 dot on an eastern island. Like in Tactics Ogre (SNES), castles are home to
 consecutive maps -- in this case, four! One has to prepare thoroughly before
 committing, as there's no saving inside and it would be a shame to reach the
 end and have to redo everything! Gracula is part of Glycinia's sidequest, so
 if she's not invited yet, don't bother.

 • Speaking of which, Glycinia now appears at Haena, with her penultimate
   setup: Ripple's Staff, Glass Pumpkin, Dragon Gem, Hard Leather. The player
   should make a choice at this time: should I invite Glycinia now and get
   the unique staff, or wait until later and get the best bow (Crescente)? The
   bow isn't unique because another can technically be obtained during the
   last set of dungeons via invitation, but there's no saving during then so
   it's not permanent. The deciding factors typically come down to the staff's
   item ability (casts Divine Radiance) and the Crescente being used with the
   special bow ability Lachesis, obtainable later.

 Anyway, now's the time to prepare for Ostorea!

 There's nothing difficult about fighting a bunch of measly Gremlins, besides
 the obvious pursuit in catching them. The terrain here is composed of lava
 and ocean, a weird mish-mash you'll find nowhere else, so said pursuit can be
 a bit annoying if it goes to extremes.

 • The reason to play this map is part of Glycinia's quest. If she's been
   recruited, she'll have a quote about Lubina being around somewhere. Bring
   her along in battle and move adjacent to the gremlin "Lubinnya" to uncover
   Glycinia's incognito sister. Simply beat the map and Lubina can join the
   party, too. [NOTE: Lubina does not appear in the map if Glycinia hasn't
   been invited, and the event only happens when Gracula's first played, so
   the sis can be permanently missed.]

 • Even without foreknowledge, it'd be easy to figure out where Lubina is --
   she's the only gremlin who doesn't attack at all, not to mention the alias
   is a dead giveaway. If murdered, she drops 1000 goth...but it shouldn't be
   worth it, you meanie!

 • Note that battle ends when all foes are destroyed, not when Lubina's guise
   is revealed. It may be best to kill all regular enemies and let Glycinia
   do her unveiling act then -- this allows the fairies to safely finish
   battle without being targeted.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 If Lubina isn't invited at first, Glycinia will want to leave to escort her
 back to "the forest," so both fairies can end up leaving here (worst-case
 scenario). Is it worth getting Lubina anyway? Perhaps. She and her sis have a
 double attack (i.e. move adjacent to one another) called Magic Missile that
 does magic damage with a banishing effect. It self-damages too, expectedly.

 Lubina joins with: Sherwood Bow, Hard Leather, Amulet

 divide 'em as they attack two fronts (like Bethla Garrison in FFT). Saving
 is impossible until every last battle has been completed, which can make
 this stretch of sword-clashing horribly annoying for people barely winning
 by the skin on their teeth.

 There is a trick, though. If your ranks are small enough to put everyone in
 one battle, the other gate battle will be skipped completely. This is not a
 recommended tactic as it misses items and, worse, the Atropos special skill
 (if you take the Ostorea South route). This aside, the walkthrough's duty is
 to go the 'normal' route that most will go.

 Think about visiting Quest Mode to stock up on rare equipment and such -- it
 can really help here.

 <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

 For those with few allies, or those who will just have a poor time splitting
 the party up evenly, there's a way to 'pad' one side a bit: undead allies! No
 enemies within Ostorea will be able to banish (i.e. completely irreversably
 destroy) these types in the first three battles on Path A. Plus:

 • They are immune to status effects
 • Ghosts can teleport (no movement penalties)
 • They automatically revive themselves with ample HP
 • Ghosts can use nagging bane spells
 • With Cursed Existence (revives w/ full HP), you'll never be short-handed

 This is the most obvious way, since ghosts are the only undeads that are easy
 to find. If you have not been to Blete yet (must clear Gryllus), there's one
 more undead to get: a Dragon Zombie! These CAN have their status changed but
 with a Necklace of Resist, be completely invincible in a sense. Their Rotting
 Breath ability can also lowers equipment power. You may not want undeadies
 after the first two battles, but they ARE a very good way to get troops that
 are completely self-sufficient and need no real strategies.

 Ghosts can only be encountered in Gryllus, though, and can't be hired by the
 normal means. After clearing the forest (see strategy far above) just find a
 few ghosts and invite 'em. The Arbitration ability helps to get the first;
 ghosts persuade fellow ghosts easier, too. Just remember to invite ghosts who
 start with the Enfeeble spell since it's not buyable and will be more useful
 than, say, Brain Sap in the long run.

 Cursed Existence is alright, but if you've got an Angel Knight, they're not
 too bad a supplement. "Poignant Melody" allows them to return HP and MP/SP
 to the above two classes, which normally are unable to be healed by normal
 methods. One Angel Knight should suffice.

 As always, this is just a RECOMMENDATION, but the possibilities are great if
 you bring four or five ghosts into battle. It's really a flawless, near-cheap
 strategy. =)

 <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

 So, which allies should you send where? It's really up for grabs, but here's
 a good guideline:

 [OSTOREA WEST]                       [OSTOREA SOUTH]

  • Alphonse                           • Ally w/ Heal Plus
  • Knight w/ Heal                     • Priest
  • Knight w/ Heal                     • Knight/Swordmaster
  • Ally w/ summons                    • Knight/Swordmaster
  • Ally w/ Heal Plus                  • Ally w/ support spells
  • Ally w/ Hurdle Wall?               • Knight/Swordmaster
  • ?????                              • ?????
  • ?????                              • ?????

 This is what I consider the 'essentials.' Hurdle Wall is useful here, unlike
 most maps, because the castle wall is impassable except for flying/warping
 units. Hurdle Wall ignores elevation and places a unit up above, allowing
 a unit to ambush the archers. Fill in the "?????" blanks with units of your
 choice, which I suggest ghosts/dragon zombies. >___>   Don't forget to bring
 someone with fire-elemental spells if you want to find treasure -- snow will
 be covering lots of spaces. NOTE: Use Teleport instead of Hurdle Wall if
 you have it.

 Equip a Necklace of Resist on those undeads and watch 'em rattle down the
 street!

 <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

 Both gates are open at once, but Ostorea West can get tackled first. As long
 as you know that sending troops to one makes those unavailable for the 2nd...
 Onward, Lodis Soldiers!

 NOTE: If you haven't revisited Rana to get the Zephyrus spear, that can help!

 Ahh, one of the harder battles yet fought, and the harder of the two gate
 battles. Margret (Leader, Swordmaster) has the Atropos spell and uses it to
 inflict 100+ damage to a target, thus why anyone with even a regular heal
 spell does good here. This also damages her, though, making her not so hard
 of a target to bring down. Just make sure to keep mage units away 'cause she
 may OHKO some of them, no joke. If you want to defeat everyone and get the
 rare items, here's the 'order of operations':

1: Bring Down Duke Knights!
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 These are the 'closest' technically, so the player'll probably tango with one
 or two of these while trying to accomplish the first objective. They loiter
 by the gate and don't stray until enemies approach; they're drawing you into
 the archers' sights, y'see. Try to draw them into the water ('Channel' panels)
 to reduce their defensive capabilities, 'cause they are pretty decent on that
 end, and incapacitate them in some manner. Surround the one that knows Heal
 Plus first because he won't cure himself at the expense of doing the same to
 the allies; when he's gone, surround-'n'-pound the second Duke Knight. [Using
 ghosts to surround helps since the terrain is hard on units without the
 snow-walking ability.] These feats will net the Sum Mannus & Saint's Shield
 rarities, both useful.

2: Slay the Hawkmen! And a Warlock?
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 If you have Teleport, and you should if you're on Path A, sending in a lone
 unit up on the castle wall makes little sense since these guys will gang up
 on it. They're the only flying units, and have pretty crappy defense to boot.
 Once they're dead, give the Swordmaster (or bowman) a clear target at the
 enemies below. I gave my swordmaster Orson's Thunder Bow and it worked to
 great effect. [Once they're gone, teleporting mage units to the upper wall is
 an awesome tactic, though.]

 NOTE: The warlock may be close enough to die. He's inconsequential in the
       grand scheme of the battle

3: March to the Archers!
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Archers stay up top on the wall, and gain tremendous range due to the height
 of the dang thing. Hurdle Wall places a character up there but only if s/he's
 standing adjacent; Teleport lets anyone teleport anywhere. Bows work horribly
 when shooting at an uphill level, meaning a unit with a bow can get the upper
 (no pun intended!) hand by getting on the even HIGHER spots (29s). Margret's
 ability can't reach up there, so they'll be safe. Start plugging the archers
 from there, and maybe that warlock, too, which isn't of any consequence to be
 honest (Sacred Rings can be won in Quest Mode). Maybe persuade him for to get
 an extra ally...? :D

 That Grincer Coat is part of the 'Enchanted Hunting Wares' set, and although
 it's very good, it's NOT one-of-a-kind. More can be won in Quest Mode, so if
 you want to skip it, go ahead. Same goes for the Tundra Bow, which is /not/
 dropped.

4: Death to Margret!
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 NOTE: Margret doesn't seem to heal herself...?

 With only Margret and maybe the warlock left, long-range attacks can really
 pay off. Throughout the battle she'll keep her distance as long as allies are
 not too close to the castle wall, and she often idles near the righthand-side
 stairway. Use Teleport to get bowmen/Swordmasters in position for their long-
 -range attacks, and use the unit with the highest HP/defense to eat Atropos'
 damage. This weakens her as well, remember? Better yet, use an undead enemy
 as bait to make her weaken herself. It's really ingenious.

 If you want to find treasure on the map, make sure you do so before Margret
 gets on your tail, 'cause she can't be Teleport-ed around. However, the spell
 I just mentioned is good for evading her illustrious sword talents for awhile,
 at least. In a snowstorm, panels can be turned into 'Snowy Plain' types so be
 sure to bring a 'Clear Sky' spell to change the weather! (A 'Coral Harp has
 the same effect as Clear Sky, remember).

 Oh, and if you still don't have a leg-up, Margret's movement only has an up/
 down ratio of 2:3, meaning you can stall her with undeads if you have some,
 like I did here:

     http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v242/Shotgunnova/Margretmove.png

 If she kills one, just use Cursed Existence to bring her back. Those undeads
 are really expendible, but so lovable, too. =p

OTHER TIPS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 • If you want to be a badass, wait for an archer to stand on the outcropping
   of the castle wall and teleport a unit (or have an innately teleporting
   unit) onto the wall. Remember that hitting someone with a shield produces
   knockback? Doing that to an archer on the edge will send them off, killing
   them from the ridiculous fall damage. Another method how those "disposable"
   ghosts can earn their battle stripes!

 • If you're looking for treasure, remember that snowfall will re-cover the
   burnt tiles. Make sure to use Clear Sky/Coral Harp to keep the weather
   clement (although besides the Phoenix Mail, the tiles are normal ones).
   And as a curio, summoning a tempest in snowy weather produces a snowstorm,
   so if you wanted to make some kind of silly flooding tactic, that ain't
   gonna fly.

 • Bringing a swordmaster in with Molten Blade can pay off in spades just on
   counterattacks alone (particularly in the early going). Although, if it's
   between that and Teleport, go with the latter.

 • Tile [20,5] is a crucial point for units ascending/descending the upper
   wall -- putting an ally here, prevents Margret from getting back up or
   keeps her up there, securing safe passage for ascending allies. It's not
   that feasable without teleporting/flying units, but can certainly be useful
   in the right situations.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 When Margret's defeated, she'll pass on her 'Atropos' special skill to one
 human unit of the player's choice. It can be ANYONE in EITHER party that can
 learn it -- there is no restriction besides the normal ones (monster units
 cannot learn it, fr'instance). Alphonse is probably the best target, although
 Ivanna, a Swordmaster, or such would be a prime candidate, too. Let me iterate
 this in case you didn't catch it:

    YOU CAN ONLY LEARN THIS NOW AND HAVE ONE CHANCE TO TEACH IT TO SOMEBODY!

 Note that anyone in your team can learn the ability -- including those not
 in the battle party, such as those at the other gate (if you did it already)
 -- provided they fulfill the requirements.

                                |_____|_________________________|

 Defeating Nichart will end the battle, but there's SO much to do before then!
 The Priest has the one-of-a-kind 'Divine Radiance' spell, a powerful offensive
 VIRTUE spell for healers. The Venefic (Lethe) often ignores using Fluid Magic
 on the priest if you mount the stairs from the right side, so that's what you
 should do.

 ...But, before that, taking out those Duke Knights is well worth it. They're
 the only physical fighters besides Nichart and can be a thorn in the side if
 they're let run rampant. Surround-'n'-pound the one with a Heal spell and use
 summons (Euphaire has Energy Transfer, remember) to take it out of the picture
 before the Priest can heal it; which, if it's surrounded, she won't. Drawing
 the Dukes towards the party is as easy as staying put for three turns. (NOTE:
 If you're playing on an emulator, you'll want to kill that witch first since
 Fascination can freeze up the game and make the player reset!). If you can
 inflict paralysis/sleep, summons will never miss! Abuse Energy Transfer and
 Fluid Magic to really drive the nearby enemies into the ground, stake-style.
 This is an easy way to take out the sirens/witch appearing on either side of
 the field. Lethe teleports out when her HP is depleted (no spoils).

 Nichart's an agile opponent, doing 50+ often enough due to the terrain and
 his weapon/innate element bonuses -- ice! Basically none of the panels give
 a negative impact to water/ice, so standing on normal ground is good enough.
 Surround him so he can only hit one ally with his two-panel attack, and chip
 away. Be sure to keep a Heal Plus'r on-hand since he can really damage those
 of the opposite element (or with crap defense). When his HP dips below 100,
 he starts to heal. Interestingly enough, he's already got a 'Don Quixote'
 emblem which gives him -10 INT. Laff!

 Other things:

 • There's a buried Leviathan Mail at tile [0,15], which is an isolated space
   covered by snow -- it'll require a flying or warping character to get it
   once the preparations are done. This can be won in Quest Mode, too, so no
   reason to get bent out of shape if y'can't get it.

 When he's defeated, he drops an Osric's Spear and 1000 Goth, which must be a
 kicker 'cause no one leaves behind two spoils in the game. The parties will
 now rejoin into a solitary collective now, meaning the worst is over.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The party rejoins to assault the throne room. Remember to equip the team with
 new stuff once y'get there!

 Although it may look a little grim, this battle's really not as hard as it
 seems...if you want to just get on with it. The Witch has the one-of-a-kind
 Petrifying Cloud spell, the male knight has the only Dragon Helm in the game,
 and, of course, Rictor has the game's only virtue summon: Ignis Fatuus. These
 (except for last, which is obtained automatically) are what should be sought
 after. A Duke Knight has a Warp Ring, too, but that can be obtained in Quest
 Mode. If you choose to go after it, though, it'll probably one of the last to
 get gork'd.

 Going after the mages first is recommended, as Atropos should be able to OHKO
 them pretty easily...at most, two attacks. The Witch feeds MP through Fluid
 Magic to Rictor -- a strategy we're all familiar with -- so taking her out is
 very recommended, not to mention her petrification magic will be her prime
 attack once /her/ MP gets higher. To boot, Rictor himself is an pushover; he
 only carries a simple Heal spell, which while doing 100+, is no match for
 Atropos. He's got decent magic defense, though, so physical attacks are the
 best avenue o' destruction.

 Collecting the other objects is harder, though. Because so many units have
 single-serve healing capabilities, much damage has to be done per turn. Using
 status effects is recommended (especially on the Duke Knight who warps around
 and can't be surrounded) to waste opponent turns. There are no useful terrain
 bonuses indoors, either... One at a time, surround-'n'-pound the units since
 this is the only sure way to victory. Preface that strategy with a dose of
 summoning for that extra boost of damage. Other things:

 • The unit with the Dragon Helm is immune to dragon breath attacks, but this
   doesn't apply to the female knight with the Dragon Shield!

 • [Path A] The Atropos-user can immediately start wreaking havoc by having
   someone teleport him/her to the enemy mages' area. Since the foes are so
   piddly, and the user isn't really in any life-threatening danger (at least
   until Ignis Fatuus becomes available), it's a good way to get a leg-up on
   the competition.

 • Random aside: Lara and Justin can't be invited, probably because they have
   loyalty issues to Rictor. A similar situation happened back at Arena [Path
   A] too, if y'remember.

 Defeat Rictor to end battle.

 The chapter's nightcap battle can be quite a fun one! Naris Batraal himself
 will take up arms on Path B, surrounding himself with some trusted allies.
 Except for that guy he killed. He was a meanie. [Can you believe Naris is of
 lawful alignment? What a crock!] On Path A, Rictor and his lackeys put up a
 last stand...unfortunately, most of the units are DEF-weak meaning Alphonse's
 powerhouse team should be able to steamroll 'em.

 • [Path A] Like the previous fight, Teleport can quickly tip the scales in
   the allies' favor. Rictor's Ignis Fatuus spell is the main damage-dealer
   on his end, but slaying his Fluid-Magicking Warlock with Atropos puts the
   kibosh on that. [Warlocks have better DEF than normal mages, so one may
   need to use Molten Blade first.]

 • [Path A] Obviously don't bring any undead units with unless you've got a
   plan to take out those Angel Knights and their Banish skill! Necklaces of
   Resist don't block skills, remember.

 • [Path B] Naris has mammoth DEF/STR, a powerful weapon (Bloody Cleaver), and
   can use Ray of Paralysis to annoy everyone. Additionally, he's got a no-MP
   special ability "Hell's Gate" that may instantly slay the unit(s) it
   targets. He's no slouch, so make sure mages stay far, far away.
   
   The rest of the units are pretty average, just Duke Knights -- who should
   now be easy pickins with summons, Atropos, and Divine Radiance on the table
   -- and a few others. The priest will babysit Naris, so it helps to get her
   out of the way early in the battle to avoid her presence's prolonging
   effect. [She only has Heal Plus, though, so any surrounded unit will never
   get her powers' attention...!]

 • There's a Ring of the Dead buried at tile [12,8], one of the few available
   in the game. It's part of the method to make a character a Lich, so don't
   leave this crypt without it!

 Defeat Naris to end the battle.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Once the crypt segment is done, the second chapter comes to a close. Ostorea
 Castle is now in Alphonse's hands, which means it's open for Training and
 the shop's available, too. Cybil and Rictor can now join permanently, on Path
 A and Path B, respectively. [Pick the first option to accept, the other to
 decline.] Cybil's basically a trumped-up siren with access to all spells but
 virtue, while Rictor's a priest who can cast only (3) virtue spells but any
 within that skillset. Neither special character can change class, however --
 there's no substitution like with Euphaire's Siren and Elrik's Warlock jobs.
 
 NOTE: Thunderbird and Ignis Fatuus are equipped to Cybil and Rictor,
       respectively. Not allowing them to join means the summon is permanently
       missed!

 • Beating the Crypt earns the 'Cave Exploration' map for Quest Mode, which
   in turn opens up new item gain possibilities! See the appropriate section
   for more details.

 • Sufrir or Bison, whichever wasn't accessible on the current path, will now
   be available in southern Anser. Shouldn't be too important but Sufrir's a
   good place to fight dragons, for instance.

 • Shops have updated again, with new things like Snow Boots and Plate Mail
   available.

 • Revisiting Solea gives a special scene with Eleanor, if she's still in the
   party, and she gives an item to Alphonse depending on previous answers he'd
   given her. The Circlet of Wisdom can be gotten on either path but only if
   certain answers were given during 3 (4 if on Path B) past conversations.
   See the equipment section for more info.

 • Visiting Ardea gives the option to let Lobelia the Angel Knight join the
   party (pick option A). She comes with a Needle of Light, Cloak of Oath,
   Snow Boots, and an Amulet. Note that you cannot get Saia (at Rebanada's
   2nd battle) if she's currently in the party. However, dismissing her -- or
   using a Snapdragon on her, which is a popular choice -- is fine if you want
   Saia.

 Two maps are open: Rebanada and Harmonia. The former is an optional map that
 can be played twice (not consecutive battles); the latter is the compulsary
 destination.

 MAP: db.gamefaqs.com/portable/gbadvance/file/tactics_ogre_kol_rebanada_1st.png

 Dark and damp, this murky cave faces the northern Rananculus sea. And, once
 inside, we learn that someone who went insane over his sister's illness still
 wanders the shadows... Don't enter battle without the means to permanently
 eliminate undead types (Exorcism, Faith, Banish, and/or Star Tiara).

 Obviously, since undead types don't 'die' there's no drops to be found. One
 Dragon Zombie has a Necklace of Resist, however; persuade it to join and it
 will bring it with. This battle's relatively simple on the normal front --
 just use Exorcism/Faith and destroy the undeads as they approach.

 Rimmon (Unknown, Leader) is a different story. His physical defense will be
 higher than anything you've ever seen, topping in at 700+ even at these mid-
 -ranged levels. In comparison, his magic defense and attack're horrible, with
 the former being the main route of damage (Atropos can do below 50!). Because
 His movement type is also snow-walking, which means he can go down two steps
 or up one -- he's a fatty! If you can manage to get him up on a ledge, it's
 really quite easy to make him take some fall damage. It's really a battle of
 attrition when it gets down to it; just keep him away from the mages. His
 two emblems (War God, Berserk) may aid him a bit here...

 Oh, and there's a buried 'Tathlum' crossbow at the [15,02] panel. It's the
 only one in the game, but can be gotten later, too. It's bane-elemental, so
 that's appealing, yeah?

AFTERMATH [BATTLE #1]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Defeating this map opens up a special event next time it's entered, where a
 new character (Saia, Lesser Daemon) can be obtained. This goes hand in hand
 with events relating to getting Lobelia, an Angel Knight. Only one can be
 obtained (at least in original form), so you'll have to make the decision.
 If you choose not to invite her, she gives a Seraph's Plume as a reward. =/

 Visit Ardea and accept Lobelia's help to get her in the party; re-enter the
 map to enter the battle below (remember, this is OPTIONAL)...

 Out of all the new enemies, the Gorgons are probably the ones that need to
 be defeated first. Their 'Evil Eye' spell inflicts petrification on allies
 who do not have shields, and this is especially annoying because the ones
 who don't carry shields often are mage types (bye, Cleanse). The other enemy
 that's probably new is the Vrtra. They have normal breath attacks but inspire
 fear (-1 to mental gauge) in those within a range of three. These are great
 ones to persuade, if possible. The Vrtra nearest the party drops a Snapdragon
 (finite item) upon defeat, so invite the OTHER one if you have to.

 This is a regular old fight besides that, although the enemies may heal 100
 damage instead of the normal 50. There's just no complex strategies to do
 ever since Atropos came to town...

AFTERMATH [BATTLE #2]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 After defeating Saia, he'll pose a question to Alphonse.

 "I fight for myself" -> Saia joins party (with Amulet, Chain Mail, Enfeeble)
 "I fight for peace " -> Saia does not join party; obtain Ring of the Dead

 If you get Saia, you CANNOT get Lobelia the Angel Knight. But, Saia is great
 as a character who prefers axes and can use two minor bane spells. That Ring
 of the Dead is useful, too, so choose wisely! It's possible to get Saia, take
 all of his stuff, dismiss him, and still get Lobelia (this works vice versa
 too, if you already got Lobelia).

 Finally, some vindication. And two leaders, to boot! Make sure to put shields
 on units to protect against petrification (or Amulet accessories)!

                           |_____|_______________________|

 Both Cirvante and Lethe (Venefic and Venefica, respectively) have to be done
 in here to complete the objective. Because the entire field is designed just
 for snow-walker types -- which your party won't be full of, I guarantee -- it
 can be quite a nuisance for any trudging types. Thus, using warping / flying
 types here is the best way to get around (and Teleport. Can't forget that).
 At least snow-covered panels give slight plus-five bane resistance...

 The two new units here are the Giant and Venefic. Giants get colossal growth
 in the strength and physical defense departments, but end up having very poor
 accuracy for their only skill 'Titan Crush.' It's got 90 ATK power but rarely
 hits, thus making them a bit lop-sided (they can't equip weapons either). The
 Venefic is like Lethe, but has the powerful Fiend's Grip AOE spell. Unlike
 his 'sister' he can also use Summon Darkness to bring more undead human types
 into battle.

 Speaking of which, there's quite a few spoils worth seeking out. One daemon
 has the unique Boreas axe, while two other enemies drop a Ring of the Dead &
 Snapdragon, both available in finite quantities. If you're going to get three
 drops, those are the ones to snag -- the others are available through other
 avenues of gameplay.

 Because both leaders are trudging types, it's incredibly easy to pick off the
 enemies nearby. Fluid Magic and summons work on Turn 2, after all, and that's
 without moving from the SW corner the party starts in. Some stray too close?
 Just kick out Atropos. After about 5~6 turns, the leaders will be in range
 to use their spells, so make sure Fiend's Grip is unable to hit more than a
 few people at a time -- it's 55 ATK, the most powerful AOE one in the game!

 One 'small' difference here, that you've seen before probably, is that enemy
 units will start to heal 100 HP when in critical condition. Nothing big, but
 if any Gorgon gets away from the pack, Evil Eye's unlimited range will come
 into play. Teleport really rules the battlefield here, hands-down. Use it on
 the unit who has Atropos and go to town. [Without Teleport, warping will have
 to suffice.]

 Order of operations? Take out Cirvante first to prevent more Daemons from
 being summoned into battle. He's got decent defense so you'll have to gang
 up on him or at least corral him (w/ Atropos) towards where the allies are.
 After that (or during), the Gorgons have to go. No other enemy provides much
 of a challenge, but boy, those bosses have 200+ AGI making physical accuracy
 a bust for the most part. 100%-hitting spells will work well here, but not
 that well due to magical defense.

 So what to do? Attacking from behind gives the highest hit percentage, and
 is basically the chink in their annoying armor. Stick him on a snow panel (so
 he doesn't get a bane bonus) and use Atropos from behind a few times. Should
 not be too hard to take him down if you get the advantageous positioning.

AFTERMATH

 Afterwards, the route creeps closer to the mountains. The base of the range
 is at Charadrius...

 On Path A, Naris Batraal and his cronies put up a last stand on the lake.
 Naris has great attack and all-around defense, not to mention the harrowing
 Hell's Gate skill (spearlike range) that can inflict sleep or outright death
 on those it targets. He's not to be trifled with; keep mages far, far away!
 The rest of the units aren't that hard, although this is the only time a
 Mushus appears in mandatory play -- its +1 mental gauge to friendlies might
 be enough reason to invite it!

 The Path B version of Charadrius features an old friend turned betrayor, who
 will have a cadre of evil beings to defeat. This will probably be the first
 time an Angel Knight's seen (discounting Lobelia), and they can be formidable,
 although a little underpowered for all their laurels. Since they can instantly
 defeat undead creatures with their Banish skill, don't bring any of your fave
 zombie types here or y'risk losing 'em forever! Other things:

 • [Path A] This is the only time two priests are found, and they can back up
   Naris' evil ambitions! It's not a bad idea to Teleport the Atropos-user
   (or anyone with Clotho/Lachesis) behind them and start slaying! Note that
   one priest has Divine Radiance, one of only two obtainable in the game (and
   exclusive to Path A), so it's worth inviting her instead of the alternative,
   particularly if one didn't get Ripple's Staff as Glycinia.

 • [Path A] This may just be a fluke, but man, I had more spoils stolen in
   this fight than the entire game combined. Those Duke Knights will often be
   able to move right into position in this respect, so if y'want their stuff
   -- most of which is rare but can be gotten in Quest Mode -- prepare ahead!

 • [Path B] The cheap shot done pre-battle leaves Alphonse poisoned coming into
   the fight regardless of status prevention (which should be everything, since
   he's leader). Cure it early so it's not a nagging problem.

 • [Path B] Hanging back towards the start draws the flying units (Vrtra, Angel
   Knights) forward, setting up their demise early in the fight. Remember that
   Vrtras give an automatic -1 Fear Gauge within three panels, so it's good to
   get them out of the way.

 • [Path B] There are two particular unique items to obtain here, besides the
   mandatory Thunderbird summon: the Euros hammer and Time Flux spell. The
   latter is unique to Path B and by expending 25 MP, allows the target to have
   a second turn! Yes, that is insanely awesome, almost making up for not
   getting Teleport on this path.

 • [Path B] Daemons' Summon Darkness ability lets them call undead types into
   battle, complicating things further. [However, they only do this when
   there's less than 8 allies available, and usually when their team's
   dwindling.] Defeating them early on can save hassle later.

 Defeating the leader ends the battle.

AFTERMATH [PATH B]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Immediately after, the fabled Longicolnis spear is obtained, the most powerful
 of its type, too. It's necessary for one of the endings, so don't throw it
 away or anything stoopid like that, eh?

 • Glycinia finally settles at Charadrius for the rest of the game, and can
   be invited there after being saved. She carries a Crescente along with her
   usual stuff (Dragon Gem, Glass Pumpkin, Hard Leather).

 Once Angel's Headstone is started, there's no leaving until the events are
 all finished, so come prepared. It's not a bad idea to run through Quest Mode
 and get great items/skills, or even just buy Firecrests from Pumpkinhead's
 shop in Scabellum (as part of Deneb's quest).

 It took awhile, but the game finally broke an enemy Lich out. Mycale (leader)
 is an undead wizard transmigrated via a Ring of the Dead, giving him insane
 defense of both types and three spell slots. He also brought some like-minded
 cronies with...but none that know Fluid Magic, unfortunately for him!

 • Besides the leader and Daemon, everyone's undead and can be eliminated via
   normal means. However, the Dragon Zombie has a Necklace of Resist, making
   his only achilles' heel Banish (Angel Knight) or Star Tiara (Eleanor). And
   although the boss is undead, he isn't subject to any instakill methods like
   the others -- no liches are, even ally ones. It's a good idea to take out
   the Daemon early so he can't call any other zombies in via Summon Darkness.

 • If y'want buried treasures, they're all buried under snow, so bring someone
   with non-summon fire magic.

 • The left hand "stairway" by the abyss tiles can't be bypassed by trudging
   characters, which can be a problem if stronger units warped/flew ahead to
   corner Mycale. Keep the battle local, if possible, or go all the way around
   (ugh).

 • If Mycale ends up curing 100 HP each turn, and no one has the strength to
   do more than that, even when ganging up, use Time Flux to give an extra turn
   to the strongest character! Even Mycale can't smooth over two Atropos hits
   a turn, for instance!

 Overall, the lich's presence does little to disguise the normality of this
 battle, which is probably less stressful than the one at Gryllus. Because no
 enemy drops anything important, including the boss, it's not a bad idea to
 just gun for him -- surround-n'-pound and all that.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Like at Ostorea, Alphonse is determined to split the team again: one party
 goes to the Hall of Corruption, the other the Garden of Memories. Those going
 to the latter should bring a good healer and status-inflictor, while the
 former should get units with shields (blocks petrify) and another healer.
 If y'haven't been using Rictor, now's a good time to let him quit warming the
 bench. [Also, whichever map is picked first, Alphonse has to be the leader of
 it!]

 Probably the easier of the two battles, this is the one that should get only
 a few awesome units with some others to pad the ranks (ghosts?). Remember to
 bring everyone with a shield to prevent the gorgons' Evil Eye attack! They'll
 try to "snipe" the party with it and it's rather annoying. Other things:

 • Undead units are recommended highly for this fight because, unlike their
   holy counterparts, Dark Angels don't get any special skills like Banish to
   heckle the ranks; instead, they get a few slots to use an assortment of
   magics. [Dragon Zombies can't use shields however, so they're not that great
   to bring here.]

 • The foes' drops in this level are pretty much crap, with only the Healing
   Essence being of any real use. Because of this, it's not a bad idea to just
   skip the foreplay and kill the boss first thing, getting this level over
   with. [However, a few foes do have rare items equipped, like the Robe of
   Abyss, so inviting them's still an option.]

 Battle ends when Rahouart's slain.

AFTERMATH

 The units that weren't picked for this battle can then proceed to do the
 other route's (or vice versa).

 This battle's only harder than the Hall of Corruption by a hairbreadth,
 really. The leader Judecca (Angel Knight) is the target to defeat here, and
 he makes it rather easy, flying down to the fray without much hesitation.
 Other things of note:

 • The enemies here all carry decent-to-rare equipment and while their drops
   are nothing spectacular, it can be worth it to invite them in the party.
   Of particular interest is the Angel Knight with a Crescente longbow, which
   is the best type in the game. Most of the other rarities can be obtained
   via Quest Mode, luckily. [NOTE: Crescente can't be permanently obtained in
   this matter, as it's not saved following the dungeon's end. This applies to
   all curios obtained during Angel's Headstone events, actually.]

 • Don't bring undead units to this fight 'less you want them eradicated via
   Banish. Avoiding this scenario should be reflexive by now, hopefully.

 • The snowy landscape can be rather hard on trudging characters, so if there
   isn't a lot of Snow Boots to pass around, and flying/warping isn't an
   option, do the next-best thing: stick in a group for mass healing purposes.

 • The enemies here can be wily, able to pop into range to attack or retreat
   to heal 100 health -- such tactics prolong battle quite a lot. Because of
   this, make sure to use debilitating attacks (paralysis/petrify work best)
   to make summons' accuracy 100%!

 • Remember to use the Divine Radiance spell if you get in a bind! It does
   ridiculously powerful percentage-based damage, and while it won't work on
   the leader or debilitated foes, it can be great for taking foes out in a
   flash. Time Flux helps since its success rate's rather mediocre.

 • Bringing Saia to this fight gives a special dialogue between him and the
   leader...it's kinda funny.

 This should be an interesting fight. Shaher himself takes up arms here and
 he's quite formidable, indeed. He has three abilities: (1) Ice Requiem, a 30-
 -SP, 50-power, water-type global skill that damages all his foes and may add
 sleep (2) Anbicion, a 90-power, single-target, virtue-elemental spell that
 just does damage (3) Descent, a bane-type spell that summons another ally to
 battle when his cronies' numbers start dwindling. Summoned units are either
 Dark Angels or Angel Knights.

 Other things about this battle:

 • If you've been going straight for the boss' jugular recently, that tactic
   blows here -- there's a lot of flighty foes that can quickly muck up that
   strategy. It's best to take it slow and pick off the nearest foes (daemons)
   and work forward, killing the angel types as they come. Shaher will get in
   some annoying Ice Requiems en route, even with Teleport, so have the allies
   ready to Heal Plus. [One reason why it's good to clump together.]

 • Speaking of which, any important units should have accessories that guard
   against status abnormalities (priests, for instance). Remember that Alphonse
   is immune to them automatically as Leader, so he doesn't need one.

 • Descent is used when Shaher's ranks start depleting, and there's two things
   about this: (1) petrified units still count towards his side, so if they're
   far enough away from the others, they can become deadweight in the allies'
   favor (2) killing foes fast enough forces Shaher to Descent each turn, an
   easy way to make him waste time. Divine Radiance can help slay foes quickly
   in this manner.

   Note that Descent-summoned units act immediately, meaning the petrify-and-
   -leave-to-rot strategy can backfire, as the foe almost always cures the
   comrade upon action. In the late battle, it's best to kill each unit
   summoned, keeping Shaher using Descent, rather than petrifying or whatnot.

 • Like most angel types, if put in a life-threatening condition, Shaher will
   fly far away and heal (if his allies don't do it for him!) If on Path B,
   pairing Time Flux with Atropos -- or other skills learned in Quest Mode --
   can be a great help. Just make sure to attack from behind if possible, as
   he'll counterattack for ~70 damage and that's about how much self-damage
   is incurred usually. [This doesn't count Firecrests or the like.]

 • Allies summoned by Descent either drop Angel Fruits (fully restore HP/MP)
   or Altars of Resurrection, for Dark Angels and Angel Knights, respectively.
   Prolonging battle to get a few extra Angel Fruits isn't a bad idea, really.

 Shaher's defenses are quite good, and even with a double turn of Atropos,
 it's likely to only knock off 120-150. Because of this, it's best to slowly
 weaken him, forcing him to Descent all the while, and when he's almost in
 critical HP, do a huge strike against him: Atropos and other skills, summons,
 regular attacks, etc. With some strategizing and a li'l luck, he should fall.

AFTERMATH

 The next battle starts immediately, using the same units that participated in
 this one. Make sure everyone has a shield!

 The immobile final boss picks a corner to take root in, and from there, the
 remaining allies will have to advance and take him out. Two new foes are
 introduced here: Dark Stalkers and Hell Gigantes. The former are basically
 evil ninja, except they're easily killed, while the latter are "evil giants,"
 who are a bit harder to slay. They're not that important in the long run
 besides nagging the foes. Shaher has four (!) attacks he uses:

 • DAY OF RECKONING: [Global] This skill inflicts status effects on all the
   allies...or, rather, those without shields! Make sure everyone has a shield
   or is immune to status changes before coming into battle, and render this
   attack harmless all-around.

 • APOCALYPSE: [Single] One target is struck by a bolt of negative energy. It
   hurts, but since it's single-target, it's easily smoothed over. Definitely
   one of the better attacks to be struck with, if there's such a thing. [PWR:
   90]

 • CATACLYSM: [Global] Hits all units for about 100 damage and gives knockback,
   annoyingly. The thing about this skill is that it hits even the foes, doing
   some of the allies' work for 'em. [PWR: 60]

 • DESCENT: [Single] This was seen in the previous battle as a technique for
   summoning another ally into battle. However, in this case, it summons up to
   FOUR allies who act immediately! [Predators, similar to evil dragoons, can
   also be summoned in this way.] Max enemy limit: 4.

 • SHEAR: [Adjacent] This ability isn't in his file, but he has it. This is
   only used when there's an ally within one panel of his -- Shaher viciously
   swipes at 'em to cause damage. Normally this would be an alright event but
   it DOESN'T count as his action for that turn! Avoid this needless damage
   by not getting close to him; or, getting close and Time Fluxing out after.

 FIRST OFF, Shaher cannot be damaged until he's struck with the Longicolnis
 spear -- this breaks his barrier and allows him to be damaged by normal types
 of abilities.

 Regarding enemies, it's highly suggested to just ignore Hell Gigantes and
 Dark Stalkers. Despite their stats, they typically suck and end up as a mere
 nuisance instead of a real threat. However, when Descent is used, it can bring
 a "Predator" into battle. These shouldn't be much of a threat, but they come
 with a Brionac spear which has an instant death effect -- definitely take them
 out immediately if one appears! [If left alone, Cataclysm will probably take
 foes out itself, making it a double-edged sword.]

 Basically, with preparation, two of Shaher's attacks can be non-issues. The
 best setup for this fight is to make a "blockade" of allies two spaces away,
 with one behind the middle person to make a T-shape -- this is for healing
 purposes. [Since HP values are the same from the previous fight, it's best not
 to wait until advancing to take care of upkeep, however.] The formation leaves
 one person out but serves its basic purpose: preventing foes from approaching
 to heal, and even "barricading" weaker units in.

 Now, Shaher has pretty good defenses, so it pays to strike from long range:
 this means Clotho, summons, 100% magic, and especially ENFEEBLE! Yes, that
 measly little bane spell is ridiculously powerful in this battle. Why? Because
 it ignores defense and does consistant damage. The wonderful thing is that
 there's no need to gimp one's offense to bring in ghosts (etc.) to use it --
 it's the item effect of the Bloody Cleaver! That means on Path A, the person
 holding it can be Time Flux'd to use it twice a turn.

 SUMMARY: Enfeeble will be the single-most damaging attack in this fight, so
 anyone with it or the Bloody Cleaver should be on offense; everyone else
 heals HP/MP and attacks the remaining foes. Baiting Shaher into using Descent
 is often as simple as eliminating half the foes.

 And of course, HEAL EVERYONE (HEAL PLUS) EVERY TURN IF YOU LIKE LIVING! :)

 Aside: Shaher is an aquatic type in this battle...which is good, since your
 team's deep-six him! Ahahaha...water humor.

AFTERMATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The final battle is finalized! Following the credits, the obtained ending
 plays -- which one is found is based off certain choices made (see Ending
 section for details). Also, post-ending, the game autosaves over the last
 save with the Angel's Headstone items, like the Anbicion, so the player can
 keep playing. Angel's Headstone is accessible again, if one wants to tackle
 it again.

 NOTES:

 - PATK, PDF, MATK, MDF aren't listed -- they're based off stats that are.

 - Movement ratings are based off units I tested, but fluctuate a bit. However
   the whole number matters more than the decimals, meaning 5.1 and 5.9 MOV
   will still give only 5 panels in-battle

 - Stat gains usually have a base value that fluctuates 20% on either side,
   meaning 80% or 120%. I rounded up when calculating.

 - Remember that entering a map from different locations may cause the enemy
   formations to differ. Advancing the chapters has this effect, too. For
   instance, in Chapter 2, one can find witches in Gryllus; in Chapter 3,
   those are replaced by sirens.

 Angel Knights are human units with flight capabilities, plus two great skills
 to their name. Poignant Melody (Virtue; 20 SP, RNG 6, AOE 1-5) is one of the
 only ways to make undead units recover HP/MP/SP, while Banish (Virtue; 25 SP,
 RNG 7, AOE 1-5) has the main purpose of eradicating the undead instantly.
 They're one of the few classes of the Virtue element, making them rather
 special in that regard.

 Getting Angel Knights can be a bit harder. The first step is obtaining the
 Archangel's Feather emblem by "dying" and being brought back to life, either
 through an Altar of Resurrection or the Resurrection spell. This must be done
 during battle; units remain dead permanently if battle finishes when they're
 still KO'd. The 2nd and final step is transmigrating, done by dying AGAIN --
 there is a certain chance of automatically changing into the class if all
 prerequisites have been filled. The higher the unit's biorhythm, the higher
 the chance of transmigration.

 Two notes about this process:

 - The character must be LAWFUL to start out with, THEN change to Angel Knight
 - Special characters who turn into Angel Knights are considered "dead" for
   storyline purposes, so keep that in mind.

 Lobelia is the only "special" Angel Knight who can join, obtainable by
 visiting Ardea after clearing Ostorea Castle events. She asks to join here
 (if Saia is not in the party) and gives a Seraph's Plume if her company is
 refused. If the event plays while Saia is in the party, she gives advice and
 leaves without doing anything.

 Archers are one of the first classes available, and once longbows start to be
 available, a bit better. Their AGL growth is decent but they're mostly for
 physical supporting as they can't use any magic. Their movement range is very
 good and coupled with teleportation equipment, they can quickly get out of
 harm's way and to the high ground. Like all longbows, the higher up a unit
 becomes, the larger range one gets. Give one the Lachesis spell and things'll
 be hunky dory.

 The downside to this class is that they have weak counters (semi-fixable with
 Fist Fight emblem), aren't that powerful innately, and are quickly outclassed
 by stronger units. For instance, a Swordmaster with a bow would be better in
 almost any category, while a Hawkman with a bow would suffice on that same
 end, plus it has a special ability. I believe Archers' damage formulae factor
 in SPD or AGL.

 This enemy-only class only inhabits two seaside maps in the game, which is
 why they are of the rarer "Semi-Aquatic" movement type. They specialize in
 axes but will appear with upgraded armor & swords toward the late game. As
 they have no spell slots and aren't particularly difficult, they pose little
 challenge in general. All enemies of this class have the "Don Quixote" and
 "Embodiment of Desires" emblems but have no other slots.

 Roughly the male-only equivalent of the Dragon Tamer, Beast Tamers are useful
 for teams with lots of beast units...but not too much else, since they can't
 use magic. Beast units are classified as non-demonic, non-dragon, non-humans,
 meaning anything from a Griffon to Cerberus but discounting demihumans like
 Hawkmen and Fairies. The power up surfaces in a +1 mental gauge to monsters
 within three panels, which helps them fight better. All in all, not too
 different from the similar unit from Ogre Battle 64.

 This unit is also known for having a drawback to its usage, being that as
 soon as so-and-so kills 2 beast-type monsters, he can't become this class. 
 The long-term effect is it prevents the class from getting the Relix's Emblem
 (permanent +2 mental gauge), so it's wise to experience the class as soon as
 possible -- which is just changing into it and then changing back.

|_____________| UNIQUE: No

 A basic dragon of the water element, this creature excels at STR & HP gains,
 as well as having a skill that matches its element. Cold Breath (Water; 20 SP,
 AOE 1-4) has the ability to put its targets to sleep sometimes, which is one
 of the worst of the dragon abilities. To expound, all enemies have infinite
 "Spirit Fruit" that alleviate statuses, and since sleep is the worst of the
 inconveniences possible, there's no accolades to give. It doesn't help that
 the breath attacks themselves do lame damage, often in the mid double digits.

 To change a dragon into another basic type, a Mirror of the Gods must be used
 on it. So, if a dragon wants to become water-elemental, the mirror must be
 used by a unit that's already water-elemental. Note that Virtue/Bane elements
 cannot be transferred to a dragon in this way.

 NOTE: Blue Dragons can't get the following emblems: Exorcist, The Pen and
       the Sword, Gibe of Fallen Angel, Lancer, Berserk, Arbitration, Vixen's
       Whisper/Broken Heart, Sniper, Fist Fight.

 The cerberus is a multi-headed, fire-elemental dog that appears in a select

 Fire Breath, except it inflicts sleep instead of confusion. Because of their
 scarcity and inability to chance classes, the class isn't that useful outside
 of theme parties.

 In a strategy games, any healing unit will be beneficial; luckily, Clerics're
 available from the get-go. These healers specialize in Virtue-type spells --
 HP restoration ones in particular -- and are crucial for certain levels like
 Gryllus. Because they never lose their usefulness throughout the game, they
 are often at equal level as Alphonse (the most-used unit) due to all the
 healing possible.

 The class' magic abilities are somewhat restricted, through. They can't use
 the Ignus Fatuus summon, Divine Radiance, the awesome Resurrection, or (for
 some reason) the Tranquillize spell. Everything else, from Heal to Exorcism
 to Full Heal, is fair game.

 If you've played an RPG before, you probably already know of this bird and
 already fear its power! They're pretty pathetic until they learn their only
 technique Petrifying Breath (25 SP, AOE 1-4) which, as the name implies, can
 petrify its targets. Like all breath attacks, its AOE turns from 1 to 4 by
 increasing INT. It can fly as well, which means terrain penalties don't get
 in the way. However, the downside is mostly the petrification itself: those
 enemies affected don't drop items! Although they get pushed to the side in
 the face of the Gorgons' incredible Evil Eye skill, they're beast-type and
 fit into thematic parties as such. Make sure to prioritize when facing them
 and go for the jugular before all else!

 NOTE: These birds can't get the following emblems: Exorcist, The Pen and the
       Sword, Gibe of Fallen Angel, Lancer, Berserk, Arbitration, Vixen's

 Daemons are a special enemy-only class that appears towards the endgame.
 They're not particularly difficult but carry powerful weapons, as well as
 owning the Summon Darkness (Bane) ability, which can suck another Gorgon or
 Daemon into battle. Their HP growth is decent and they're used as tanks,
 simple as. Expect to see late-game versions carrying the Fiend's Grip spell,

 Arguably one of the more useless specialty classes, Dragon Tamers are open
 to females only. They use thrusting swords and light armor, and can use a
 single projectile spell (Fireball, Acid Vapor, etc.) to some effect. Their
 main purpose is giving +1 to allied dragons' mental gauges if they're within
 three panels. This helps dragon units perform better in battle, but that's
 the only thing going for this class.

 Dragon Zombies are great to have, but are thwarted by a two main things: the
 horrible innate move and movement type, and how often they appear. On the
 first point, 3.9 is pretty crappy on flat ground, and with elevation
 factored in, it's far less stellar. One of the accessories it equips should
 be some kind that changes its movement to teleporting (such as Warp Ring).
 The other point is that Dragon Zombies rarely appear in-game for capture,
 and finding Necromancy in Quest Mode can be a pain as well -- it's just all-
 -around scarcity.

 However, they're one of my favorite units because they're undead (which has
 a long-lasting trait to it) and do well as attackers. They're a bit weaker
 than their elemental counterparts, but Rotten Breath (Bane; 20 SP; AOE 1-4)
 has a chance of reducing all the target's equipment's stats, which makes it
 easier to do damage. Naturally, this attack is cut off at the knees when it
 faces enemies who have no equipment (primarily animals). Did I mention their
 physical attacks can inflict Poison sometimes? No? They do.

 NOTE: Dragon Zombies can't get the following emblems: Exorcist, The Pen and
       the Sword, Gibe of Fallen Angel, Lancer, Berserk, Arbitration, Vixen's

 Unlike Ogre Battle 64, there's little rigamarole in order to obtain this
 beefy class. They excel mostly at DEF but are great sword- and spear-handlers
 as well. Like some other fighting classes, they can use a single elemental
 projectile spell (Fireball, Acid Vapor, etc.) but don't excel on this end.
 Their special ability is being able to sometimes instantly KO dragons, which
 they do by throwing their sword in the air and slashing. This is great on its
 own, but it also earns the Berserk emblem with ease. Some people like to
 knock this class in comparison to Liches or Swordmasters, but it can hold its
 own easily...just don't use it for its magic capabilities...

 One of the special units that serves the Duke of Rananculus, this enemy-only
 class is well-acquainted with spells and attacks. Their HP growth is pretty
 good and they can become quite an annoyance in later chapters since they're
 always decked out with special equipment. They have three slots for healing
 and offensive spells (Heal Plus, Crag Crush, etc.) but usually carry one into
 battle, at least as far as my observations have shown. All have the Charisma
 and Knight's Certificate emblems innately.

|_____________| UNIQUE: No

 A basic dragon of the earth element, this creature excels at STR & HP gains,
 as well as having a skill that matches its element. Poison Breath (Earth; 20
 SP, AOE 1-4) has the ability sometimes poison its targets, which makes it
 better than Cold Breath but worse than Thunder Breath -- middle of the pack,
 status-wise. Like all normal dragons, its movement is typically poor to
 offset its "tank" build, and it's not well-suited to environments with large
 height differentials.

 To change a dragon into another basic type, a Mirror of the Gods must be used
 on it. So, if a dragon wants to become earth-elemental, the mirror must be
 used by a unit that's already earth-elemental. Note that Virtue/Bane elements
 cannot be transferred to a dragon in this way.

 NOTE: Earth Dragons can't get the following emblems: Exorcist, The Pen and
       the Sword, Gibe of Fallen Angel, Lancer, Berserk, Arbitration, Vixen's
       Whisper/Broken Heart, Sniper, Fist Fight.

 A special class used only by Nichart, this class is very good HP- and STR-wise
 and decent in everything else. Because his INT isn't that good, his projectile
 magic attacks are easily tolerable. There's not much to say about him since
 he only appears twice in-battle, but he's definitely formidable. Keep mages
 away from his spear!

|_____________| UNIQUE: No

 Fairies are tiny floating units with little battle prowess, but they get
 insane agility and movement, not to mention some rather cool special skills
 that can make them worth keeping around (...maybe). Fairy's Kiss (learned at
 Lv10) refreshes a unit's status and heals HP numbering the user's level;
 Fairy's Embrace (learned at Lv15) gives the target a second turn, not unlike
 the unique Time Flux spell. Finally, Magic Missile (learned at Lv20) does
 straight virtue damage.

 Normal fairies aren't much to worry about, but Glycinia is a special fairy
 that can be stumbled upon constantly. Throughout the game, as long as she
 hasn't been encountered, she appears at certain places with different item
 setups. Glycinia is necessary to get the character Lubina in Chapter 2-3,
 also.

 - Battle #12-15a/b -----------> Vespa
 - Battle #15a/b-21a/b --------> Haena
 - Battle #21a/b-22 -----------> Lutra

 It's advised to put off getting her until Haena or Lutra, where she can come
 with the rare Ripple's Staff and Crescente longbow, respectively. Getting her
 early has little payoff since her equipment's pretty lame.

 Note: Because fairies can't change class, they can't get Gibe of Fallen Angel,
       The Cycle of Life, or Ripple's Emblem.

 Valor, Veteran Soldier. To boot, his mental gauge is permanently fixed at +2.

|_____________| UNIQUE: No

 Ghosts aren't one of the best classes in the game strength-wise, but when it
 comes to durability and fortitude, these guys have staying power. This is due
 to a few things: they're undead and revive infinitely, they can teleport and
 float to avoid terrain effects, and use annoying bane spells that drain HP &
 MP. The "Cursed Existence" spell can raise all defeated ghostly units (this
 includes Dragon Zombies) automatically, which means anyone who fancies the
 idea of an undead army will find the upkeep is very easy. 

 Like all undead units, the only weakness is being eradicated completely. This
 applies almost primarily to Angel Knights, whose Banish spell has that effect.
 The good news is they appear mostly toward the endgame stages, so 'til then,
 feel free to use ghosts to pad the army (particularly for Ostorea chapters,
 if you're short on allies).

 NOTE: Special characters turned into ghosts via Necromancy are considered to
       be 'dead' storywise, for all intents and purposes. Obviously don't do
       this without knowing the consequences.

|_____________| UNIQUE: No

 Giants appear towards the end of the game, and are basically the embodiment
 of meat-headed units specializing in brute strength. Their attack and defense
 are typically good but their magic defense redlines hard, letting them get
 walloped whenever they appear. Its Titan Crush ability has one of the highest
 base powers (90) in the game but it's so inaccurate that it's more of a con
 than a pro. Many people raise giants, not as an awesomely useful unit, but as
 a snapdragon candidate.

 NOTE: Giants can't get the following emblems: Exorcist, The Pen and the
       Sword, Gibe of Fallen Angel, Lancer, Berserk, Vixen's Whisper or Broken
       Heart, Sniper, Fist Fight, The Cycle of Life, or any race-specific one.

 Although some demihumans are useful for attacking (Hawkmen, primarily), if
 there is one unit who typifies how good they can be, it's the Gorgon. Why?
 The Evil Eye ability (Bane; 30 SP) which can petrify any enemy without a
 shield. Its range is unlimited, which doesn't mean a "global" effect, just
 that it extends all the way across the screen. The diagram describes the
 range, with the [G] being the gorgon and the [X] being the panels affected
 in the direction she looks.

               [X]     ...and so on. Think of it as a breath attack that only
            [X][X]     gets larger as it goes. There are some downsides to
         [X][X][X]     this incredible ability, though. It can petrify allies
   [G][X][X][X][X]     as well as enemies, petrified enemies don't leave
         [X][X][X]     battle spoils, and it can STILL miss even under the
            [X][X]     most opportune of circumstances. Obviously a shield'll
               [X]     rend the attack useless (this tactic comes into play
                       for another skill in the game) so always equip one!

 Gorgons also have a natural immunity to petrification, another thing that
 sets 'em apart from normal monsters.

 NOTE: Gorgon's cannot get Gibe of Fallen Angel, The Cycle of Life, or any
       race-specific emblem.

|_____________| UNIQUE: No

 If fairies represent the forces of good, these guys are their polar opposite.
 Of similar stature and weapon affinities, they can't use any spells but have
 two abilities instead. Fairy's Kiss (Bane; 15 SP, RNG 1, AOE 1) will do small
 damage and confuse its target, while Fairy's Embrace (Bane; 25 SP, RNG 1,
 AOE 1) damages & petrifies its target. These enemies actually have decent HP
 growth and fairy-like evasion, which makes them semi-useful as ally archers
 and very annoying as enemies. However, since their SP skills are close-range,
 they don't get used to often on Alphonse's crew.

 NOTE: Gremlins cannot get the Gibe of Fallen Angel, Vixen's Whisper/Broken
       Heart, The Cycle of Life, or any race-specific emblem.

 Griffins are flying beasts that appear almost everywhere, making them easy

 on an enemy. Unfortunately, this class is too generic to be of much use in
 the long run -- dragons like the Vrtra or Dragon Zombie have more staying
 power.

 Hawkmen are one of the game's demi-human classes, and are obtainable fairly
 early into the game, whether hired and raised from scratch or encountered in
 the wild. Their most defining feature is their wings, which unlike Cockatrice
 units, can actually be used for flying. They're best with hammers or longbows,
 but can handle themselves with sword types as well. Their special skill
 Thunder Arrow (Wind; 15 SP, RNG 7, AOE 1) plays off their long-ranged skills,
 and isn't so shabby -- it is, however, STR-based which makes it even better.
 Like all demi-humans, Hawkmen can collect most emblems but can't change their
 class. Gender-wise, they're always male.

 NOTE: Hawkmen can't obtain Gibe of Fallen Angel, The Cycle of Life, or Relix's
       Emblem, for obvious reasons.

 Best described as an "evil giant," this beefcake appears only in the final
 battle in the game. Unlike his counterpart, this one gets more HP and STR
 at the expense of a usable skill, making it quite useless and not even that
 powerful (against a team with decent DEF). Overall, it's a waste of time.

 Rictor Lasanti is the only High Priest in the game, obtainable on "Path B"
 from Urodela. He's like a typical generic Priest, able to use any Virtue
 spell in the game. This gives him a large versitility, not to mention it's
 always good to get a free Priest character. His stat growth is rather even
 and adequate for fighting or magic usage. Besides Deneb and Euphaire, he's
 the only one able to use the Ignis Fatuus summon (which works better since he
 is of the same element).

 The raging debate is whether Cybil or Rictor is the best specialty mage. The
 former gets access to more spells, including the best Fiend's Grip, but can't
 use Virtue types; Rictor only has access to Virtue types, but this includes
 some of the most useful in the game, like Resurrection and Divine Radiance.
 Stat-wise, Cybil gets better MP and INT growth while Rictor gets better HP
 and STR (they're even in other areas). In this case, it's more wise to judge
 which path to take on the whole rather than just the person obtained.

 Knights are one of the most durable classes in the game, and one of the only
 physically-inclined units to have Virtue-spell healing capabilities. They're
 obtained fairly early into the game, and until it's possible to switch to
 Swordmasters, it's always good to keep someone as one in a pinch. Because
 they're so useful and "even" in their fields, it's not surprising that the
 opposition employs a few of them.

 Because the best swords in the game are normal type, it's usually recommended
 to abstain from thrusting types (which aren't that good anyway).

 is given -- agree to get him, disagree to get a Ring of the Dead (a finite
 item used for Lich class, mind you). The only caveat is that if Lobelia has
 already been invited, and is still considered 'alive', he can't enter the
 party. This counts for likewise, too.

 As his description states, this class is about as smart as a human and there
 isn't much to differentiate the two besides the predisposition for axes and
 hammers.

 Liches are the most powerful mages in the game, able to use the best spell
 (Fiend's Grip) and any non-summon elemental magic. And as a surprise upset,
 they have GREAT DEF/MDEF, putting any other mage to shame. To obtain one
 of these hellions, equip a Ring of the Dead to a unit and die in battle (it
 must be for real; training doesn't count!) to automatically resurrect as the
 undead mage, assuming all prerequisites are met. The rings are destroyed when
 the transmigration occurs, however -- because of that, I'd classify them as
 semi-unique since the accessory needed is in finite quantity.

 One more great thing about the Lich: even though it's technically undead,
 its battle classification is like a normal unit. In layman's terms, it means
 Banish, Exorcism, and other nasty spells don't work. On the flipside, it's
 subject to normal KO conditions and must be revived with Resurrection or an
 altar. Other notes:

 - Units who become liches are considered "dead" for storyline purposes
 - Units who become liches cannot change to any other class ever again!

 The only other class well-suited to water movement inherently besides octopi,
 these half-human, half-fish units can actually put up a decent fight if given
 a chance. Naturally they do better in coastal maps -- Rana, Arena, Gracula --
 but these are in short supply and out-of-the-way normally. Lullaby (Wind; 15
 SP, RNG 6, AOE 1-5) can inflict mass sleep on enemy groups, while Cheer (Wind;
 22 SP, RNG 5, AOE 1) will increase a unit's AGI a lot. And although it's not
 that important, because the game's maps take place in the Winter Campaign,
 the rare "Snow-Trudging" type is a bit more well-suited for those battles.
 This class can't equip footwear for obvious reasons.

 Aerial is a special mermaid who can join the party following the battle at
 Arena. There's little special about her except the portrait, but she does
 come with an Eye of the Basilisk and Thunder Chain, which is reason enough
 to invite her.

 NOTE: Mermaids can't get Gibe of Fallen Angel, The Cycle of Life, or Ripple's
       Emblem, for obvious reasons.

 A Mushus is a silvery dragon of the rare snow-trudging variety (works better
 on snow). It has wings but is classified as flightless, meaning one can
 simply surround and gang up on it should the need arise. Like the Vrtra, it
 has an effect on mental gauges, this time a +1 to allied units. Other than
 that, its single breath attack is based off its element. Oddly enough, it's
 seen in mandatory combat only once.

 NOTE: A mushus can't get any of the following emblems: Exorcist, The Pen and
       the Sword, Gibe of Fallen Angel, Lancer, Berserk, Arbitration, Vixen's

 Like the ham in a Mushus-Vrtra sandwich, Naga represents the middle ground,
 a compromise on the abilities. And, like all compromises, they end up decent
 but without a special trait. While they are expected to have a breath attack
 based off its element, and the aquatic type is special among the dragons,
 it has no affect on the mental gauges like the other two upgraded dragons
 (not counting Dragon Zombie here). Since levels with bodies of water aren't
 in abundance, this may just become a pitstop before changing to the Vrtra or
 Mushus class. The one true saving grace to this class is its DEF growth, the
 best among the dragons and rivalling even most human units. Aesthetically,
 it may be the best also, but no one's counting that...

 NOTE: Nagas can't get any of the following emblems: Exorcist, The Pen and
       the Sword, Gibe of Fallen Angel, Lancer, Berserk, Arbitration, Vixen's

 Ninja are one of the best classes to get early, not because they dominate with
 their strength (mediocre compared to classes like Knights or Swordmasters),
 but because they have great AGL and movement, plus can use projectile magic.
 Shuriken Barrage is a long-range physical attack that usually does paltry
 damage to armored classes, but it makes a difference for mage types. 

 The other cool thing about Ninja is that they're one of the few classes who
 can water-walk, meaning their movement isn't impeded on water tiles even if
 their ATK/DEF decreases a bit (although it may not be noticeable if attacked
 by someone who is waist-deep). They're masters of terrain movement and not too
 bad in a pinch, either -- evasion's pretty decent. The only special ninja who
 can join is Shiven on the Path A route, but he only carries a semi-rare katana
 and has a unique portrait.

 Octopi are another one of the water-dwelling creatures who excel at ocean
 maps and less so on land. They get fantastic HP growth and decent strength,
 but really aren't that spectacular besides. Their Strangling Tentacles skill
 (25 SP, AOE 2) is competent though, and has a fixed chance of inflicting
 Confusion...which is usually doesn't. Still, for a theme party or just for
 a lark, these guys can be fun to have around.

 Priests are one of the most dignified classes in the game, and are able to use
 any non-summon Virtue spell, and are the only generic units who can use the
 lauded Resurrection and Divine Radiance spells. The most prominent downside to
 the class isn't even about the class itself: it's unlocking it!

 To become a priest, a unit must not have the 'Gibe of Fallen Angel' emblem
 awarded to clergymen who slay living beings. Killing three units with normal
 attacks earns it, and prevents further development -- oops! The upside to
 this, if any, is that undead enemies don't count towards the dishonorable
 emblem, so using Faith/Exorcism is perfectly fine. It's amazing how many
 people end up having their first cleric(s) shut out of this class because
 they can't stop their warring ways past the switch-over.

  Because the main draw to this class _IS_ the Resurrection spell, it's worth
  noting that the only one in the game is carried by the enemy Priest fought

  opt to invite the guy into the party. Similarly, the only Divine Radiance
  spellbook in the game is carried by the priest at Ostorea South.

 A basic dragon of the fire element, this creature excels at STR & HP gains,
 as well as having a skill that matches its element. Fire Breath (Fire; 20 SP,
 AOE 1-4) has the ability to confuse its targets sometimes, which makes it one
 of the better statuses dragons can inflict. Like all of the normal elemental
 dragons, their movement is typically substandard.

 To change a dragon into another basic type, a Mirror of the Gods must be used
 on it. So, if a dragon wants to become fire-elemental, the mirror must be
 used by a unit that's already fire-elemental. Note that Virtue/Bane elements
 cannot be transferred to a dragon in this way.

 NOTE: Red Dragons can't get the following emblems: Exorcist, The Pen and
       the Sword, Gibe of Fallen Angel, Lancer, Berserk, Arbitration, Vixen's

 Although the class has a prerequisite (54 MP, 70 INT, Philosopher's Stone),
 it's unique to Euphaire and she won't have to bother reaching the quotas. In
 short, this class is the first truly special unit that can be obtained, and
 it's one of the best. Euphaire can use any normal elemental magic and any
 summon; she's barred from other Virtue/Bane spells, except Necromancy.
 Basically, she's like a suped-up Siren with a spell slot exchanged for a
 unique skill. In fact, this class replaces Siren on her status menu.

 The crown jewel of Euphaire's skills though, arguably, is the Energy Transfer
 skill, which is an early self-damaging form of the Fluid Magic spell. This
 allows her to expend one-fourth of her HP and instantly give that same amount
 to an ally's MP. It's inferior to Fluid Magic but since she can't use that
 ability, it's a tiny workaround. The most obvious way to flaunt this ability
 is to pick a summon-capable unit (can't pick herself), give them MP, have
 someone heal her, then unleash the summon on an unsuspecting unit.

 NOTE: Euphaire can't obtain The Cycle of Life or Ripple's Emblem.

 Soldiers are the "building blocks" of all classes, meaning everyone has that
 option available at all times, no exceptions. Although the stats are evenly
 distributed, it's better to get a unit on the track to a specialty, which is
 why there's little reason to keep a person as this class. In addition, this
 is the only human class that can be recruited (bought) from shops, with more
 money payed to start with higher levels. Since this is such a basic class,
 expect to see them all throughout the game.

 Eleanor, a special character who has no definitive class, starts as a Soldier
 when she first joins. Unlike characters who are special because they have a
 bit of dialogue in the story or a unique portrait, Eleanor has the unique
 skill "Star Tiara" first learned at 170 INT. It'a a virtue-element spell that
 affects all foes on the field, which damages and eradicates any undead types.
 The downside is that she can only use it once per battle -- UNLESS she gains
 a level during battle, which lets her use it once more.

 Simply put, the Sorceress class (Cybil) is one of the best spellcasters in
 the game, available only on the Path A route. They have three magic slots and
 can cast anything, including summons, but are barred from any virtue-element
 spells -- so no Ignus Fatuus, Divine Radiance, etc. -- and certain bane
 spells (like Cursed Existence, Enfeeble, Necromancy, etc.) However, spells
 like Fluid Magic and Fiend's Grip are fine. A small downside, but a great
 ally to have nonetheless.

 The raging debate is whether Cybil or Rictor is the best specialty mage. The
 former gets access to more spells, including the best Fiend's Grip, but can't
 use Virtue types; Rictor only has access to Virtue types, but this includes
 some of the most useful in the game, like Resurrection and Divine Radiance.
 Stat-wise, Cybil gets better MP and INT growth while Rictor gets better HP
 and STR (they're even in other areas). In this case, it's more wise to judge
 which path to take on the whole rather than just the person obtained.

 Note: Because she can't change classes, Cybil can't get Gibe of Fallen Angel,
       The Cycle of Life, or Ripple's Emblem.

 Elrik is the second truly special character that can be obtained, and like
 his daughter Euphaire, is a great spellcaster. In fact, she mimics his form:
 access to all spells (including Necromancy) and summons but no other Virtue
 and Bane magic. His special ability is Summon Golem (Earth; 20 MP, 7 RNG,
 AOE 1) which makes a tiny doll kamikaze on an enemy. The cool thing about
 this ability is that the doll runs to the enemy, and if the ground is too
 rocky or unstable, it detonates prematurely. Besides being the source of the
 Fenrir summon, it's notable that Elrik's good with weapons too -- not that
 much of a surprise, considering this class replaces the Warlock job, also
 known for its versatility.

 NOTE: Euphaire can't obtain The Cycle of Life or Relix's Emblem.

 When it comes to the generic male-only classes, there can only be one true
 champion, and this is it. First, they're monsters in battle, having great STR
 and HP gains. Pelting Fury (RNG 7, AOE 1) is a long-range physical attack and
 is better than the ninja's Shuriken Barrage; Swallow's Daze (RNG 1, AOE 1) is
 an attack made with katanas, which may paralyze the target. In addition, the
 magic slot allows for a support spell, such as Time Flux, Fluid Magic, or
 Teleport -- the good stuff! Finally, Swordmasters make great targets for
 learning the special skills such as Atropos or Clotho. Since they are owners
 of exceptional base movement as well, they really put most male classes to
 shame. The downsides are obvious: they can't use healing spells and females
 don't have access to the class.

 Later in the game, there is a special female Swordmaster who is basically
 the same, but is Snow-Walking type and has the 'Atropos' skill.'

 NOTE: Swordmaster also refers to the female boss Margret (Battle #16) who's
       of this same class, and carries the Atropos skill.

 A basic dragon of the wind element, this creature excels at STR & HP gains,
 as well as having a skill that matches its element. Thunder Breath (Wind; 20
 SP, AOE 1-4) has the ability sometimes paralyze its targets, making it the
 best breath attack of all the elemental dragons. However, like its brethren,
 its movement is typically poor and not suited well to maps with large and/or
 varied heights.

 To change a dragon into another basic type, a Mirror of the Gods must be used
 on it. So, if a dragon wants to become wind-elemental, the mirror must be
 used by a unit that's already wind-elemental. Note that Virtue/Bane elements
 cannot be transferred to a dragon in this way.

 NOTE: Thunder Dragons can't get the following emblems: Exorcist, The Pen and
       the Sword, Gibe of Fallen Angel, Lancer, Berserk, Arbitration, Vixen's
       Whisper/Broken Heart, Sniper, Fist Fight.

 Although technically unique because the player can never get them, these
 undead units are worth talking about, I s'pose. They are identical to their
 normal counterparts -- as far as skills, movement, and equip types go -- but
 their first attacks now can poison (sometimes). All normal undead-related
 effects apply: they will auto-revive eventually, can only truly be killed by
 eradication-type skills, and never have the chance to drop items. There are
 a few cool things about these classes, though: all are stripped of emblem
 slots (except for Knight's Certificate) and Knights will never have virtue
 spells equipped.

 Valkyrie are a balanced female-only class, and the versatility shows: not
 only can they attack and use magic that isn't restricted to projectiles,
 but they get two rare movement types, allowing them to fight better than
 most in land or sea. Additionally, they give +1 mental gauge to male units
 within three spaces. That's about the extent of their uniqueness though.

 Two special bosses toward the end of the game, they're basically the same
 class, just of different genders. They're exceptionally gifted at sorcery,
 and one even has the Fiend's Grip spell in-battle. Summon Darkness (Bane) is
 a special skill with no MP cost that teleports a new monster into battle,
 often a Gorgon or Daemon. [As for their class name, it's appropriately named
 after the archaic term for poisoning.]

 Vrtra are dangerous-looking black dragons whose breath attack depends on what
 element they are (earth types have Poison Breath, and so on). In addition to
 the expected skill, they also impose a -1 Mental Gauge penalty on any enemy
 within three panels. They're also the only dragon type that can fly, which
 places them a cut above the others' who are trudging types. As far as dragons
 go, this is definitely the one to be.

 Also of note on a general level, Vrtra found in random battles often drop an
 'Urn of Chaos' item which moves a unit's alignment one notch towards Chaotic.
 These are normally obtained through storyline battle spoils, buried items,
 or Quest Mode -- this can actually be an easier way in general. Not foolproof,
 but hey...

 NOTE: Vrtras can't get any of the following emblems: Exorcist, The Pen and
       the Sword, Gibe of Fallen Angel, Lancer, Berserk, Arbitration, Vixen's

 Warlocks are the equivalent of male witches, except they're better physical
 attackers. They can use two supportive/impairing skills (example: Petrifying
 Cloud, Teleport) like their female counterpart. To give even more versitility
 in attacking, their unique ability Barren Soul (25 MP, RNG 1, AOE 1) inflicts
 damage of the element the opponent is weak against. So, if it's earth-element
 the sword that materializes will be wind-element. If a Swordmaster isn't
 available, these might be a good consolation class.

 The main difference between this and the Witch class -- besides what's been
 stated -- is they have better movement

 Like their male counterpart in the Warlock, Witches are best as supportive
 units. They have two slots for annoying magic like Ray of Paralysis or Fluid
 Magic, while their special skill Fascination (Bane; 15 MP, RNG 7, AOE 1-5)
 can inflict mass Charm on hapless units -- capped at around 50% chance, I
 believe. Either way, it's a decent unit to have but is mostly a stepping
 stone on the way to Siren, which is where the real spellcasting is at for
 females. Notable for being one of the first units who can use Fluid Magic,
 which gives a lot of MP to a target for very little cost to self.

 it's ridiculously awesome for plinking away at high-defense targets.

| AGL : 5 ~ 7 | MOVMNT: 5.x [Trudging/Wading]
|_____________| UNIQUE: Technically

 The "Witch <3" class is specific to Deneb, a recurring character throughout
 the Ogre Battle games. She has two magic slots and can use any summon and any
 normally available to generic witches (supportive magic like Ray of Paralysis,
 Zoshonel's Influence, Petrifying Cloud, Faith, etc.). Her awesome Temptation
 skill (15 MP, 7 Range, AOE 1-5) is like a super version of Fascination, and
 has a higher chance of charming the target (up to 99% instead of 49%)
 ...although if playing on an emulator, it may freeze the game!

 Now, to get Deneb, there is a specific order that has to be done. Note that
 if she dies or is used in a Snapdragon, another can be created with this
 same process. However, once Deneb changes to her specialty class, she can't
 change to any others!

 1) Create a generic female soldier of any element
 2) Give her the name "Deneb" just as it's written here
 3) In battle, earn the Vixen's Whisper emblem so she can become a witch
 4) Change her into a witch to become the specialty class

 Some people complain when they try to get her, and this is usually due to a
 few things:

 • Her name is misspelled or not capitalized properly
 • Her alignment is Lawful; she must be anything but Lawful to change over
 • In the JP version (only) Deneb must be fire-elemental

 Once Deneb is in the party, if the player tries to shop in Scabellum, there
 will be a specialty store run by Pumpkinhead available. It sells candy-type
 equipment (which all belongs to a set) and, after selling 5 Glass Pumpkins,
 the best item in the game can be bought for a whopping 32000 goth: Firecrest!
 It heavily increases all defenses and resistances...and costs no movement
 penalty!

 The game can give the player four special summoners in the game (Euphaire,
 Elrik, Cybil, Rictor) but none are earth-elemental, leaving the Gnome summon
 mismatched whenever it's used. It's not a bad idea to make Deneb that very
 type instead of giving it to an earth-type siren, for instance.

 Their name alone probably conjures up images of magic usage! Wizards are a
 class available to either sex and uses low-level elemental spells, ranking it
 as the lowest available mage type. They can only use offensive spells such
 as Crag Crush and Firestorm, and are barred from supportive (Ray of Paralysis,
 etc.) and Virtue/Bane types. As their INT goes up, some of their spells' AOE
 increases (from 1 to 5) in a plus-shaped formation. It's always good to have
 a few of these guys in the early going; later, they can be upgraded to sirens
 and liches, or swapped out for special classes, like Euphaire or Cybil.

GET : Have an ally use a Snapdragon item in-battle

 To obtain a Snapdragon, have a unit use a Snapdragon item in-battle. This
 PERMANENTLY transforms them into a one-handed sword that gives bonuses based
 off their original base stats (STR, INT, AGI only). Naturally the bonuses are
 higher if a Lv50 character uses it, instead of a Lv01 person. All Snapdragons
 are named after the character who was sacrificed -- there is no "Snapdragon"
 sword technically unless you name a homegrown character Snapdragon. :p

 Additionally, depending on the class "snapped," the sword is imbued with a
 special characteristic.

 • ANGEL KNIGHT: +1 Mental Gauge to nearby allies
 • BEAST TAMER : +1 Mental Gauge to nearby beasts
 • DRAGON TAMER: +1 Mental Gauge to nearby dragons
 • DRAGOON     : Gives bonus when attacking dragon-type enemies
 • FAIRY       : Luck increases
 • GORGON      : Prevents petrification
 • KNIGHT      : Prevents Fear (Mental Gauge can't go lower than 0)
 • LICH        : +1 Mental Gauge to nearby zombie types
 • SWORDMASTER : Gives an Instant Death effect to sword
 • PRIEST      : Prevents Instant Death (i.e. Hell's Gate skill)
 • VALKYRIE    : +1 Mental Gauge to nearby male units

 There are only four Snapdragons that can be obtained in the game (2 buried in
 Belleza & Sotavento; 2 dropped at Rebanada's 2nd battle and Harmonia). Thus,
 there's no room for screwing around!

 The stat bonuses should dictate which class gets the Snapdragon, also. If the
 person sacrificed gave a huge INT bonus, why not give it to your Lich or
 Siren?

GET: Can be given to Alphonse by Eleanor in Chapter 3.

To obtain the circlet, Alphonse has to answer correctly in four conversations
during the game: (1) Path-B-only scene at Solea en route to Sufrir (2)
Eleanor's scene at Solea (3) Berevra's scene (4) Eleanor's last scene at Solea
during third chapter. If the top answer is "1" and the alternative is "2," then
the correct order is:

 PATH A: 1, 2, 2
 PATH B: 2, 2, 1, 1/2

It's very easy to screw up finding this item, most particularly during
Berevra's query (which isn't Eleanor-centric) and lacking foreknowledge of
the item's existence.

 Emblems are obtained through accomplishing special feats in battle, and will
 often change a character's stats for the better. In fact, they make this game
 go 'round! Human types have thirty-two (32) possible emblems, while most of
 the monsters have less, since they can't change classes. When an emblem is
 obtained, it fills a vacant slot in the charater's status screen. Use the
 select button to see what they do. But, beware! Getting some emblems makes it
 impossible for some others to be obtained, so you'll want to be careful (or
 get them in a certain order). Oh, and while some emblems are needed to become
 a class, you still need to get the correct assortment of PERMANENT stats to
 change over.

 Current emblems found (per character) can be inspected on the status screen
 of that person, by looking at the overview and pressing left/right. Note that
 some special classes, demihumans, and beasts have gaps in their listing as
 they're barred from obtaining those emblems.

 • ANBICION: One version is boss-only, the other is using the sword as an item
 • DIVINE RADIANCE: Despite his leader status, Alphonse isn't immune to this!
 • FAIRY'S KISS: Whatever the fairy's level, that's how much HP is healed

 • MAGIC BARRAGE: Glycinia/Lubina double technique, available when they are
                  adjacent to each other. It takes up both sisters' turns and
                  self-damages (both) afterwards.

 • RESURRECTION: The resurrected ally reappears at a nearby tile

 • STAR TIARA: Can only be used once per battle, unless character gains a LVL
               in course of fight. [Done to offset no-MP cost? Probably.]

BURIED TREASURES                                                         [BRTR]

ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Ah, buried treasure! Sometimes on a battlefield map one will encounter some
 hidden loot beneath a panel. Oftentimes the item is a randomized crappy thing
 you can obtain through murdering some enemy; sometimes it's a great weapon or
 piece of equipment! Many rare items, like Urns of Chaos/Tomes of Discipline,
 can be found in this manner without going to Quest Mode. Here're a few basic
 tips about operating with loot in mind:

 - Items can only be claimed once (x1)
 - 'Plain' panels cannot burn in the rain!
 - Snowstorms can re-cover panels! Use Clear Sky/Coral Harp to remedy this
 - The 'Embodiment of Desires' emblem may fluctuate the item type received
 - Snowed-on items have to be burned once to reveal the real terrain 'neath
   it; some terrain must be burned twice to clear the frozen grass/etc.

 Here are the randomized items and the 'type x' groups. Because I tried this
 out with a lot of different characters, who had different luck ratings and
 may or may not have had the Embodiment of Desires, these should only be used
 as an approximation of what is received. E-mail me for errors, 'cause there
 probably are some.

 By the way, if you're not sure what way is "x" and what way is "y" on the
 map, here's a little map I drew. Use the SE edging as the X axis:

             img.photobucket.com/albums/v242/Shotgunnova/XY.png

 Just remember you --ALWAYS-- do the x- part first, then the y-coordinate!
 Anyway, I'm not much of a math buff but I do know coordinates to some degree
 so hopefully you'll understand it... >___>  Oh, and remember that the corner
 where X and Y meet is [0,0], the origin and starting place. Don't count that
 towards or you'll come up one panel short!

 NOTE: I highly recommend reading the chart [tacticsogre.com/secrets.htm#3]
       to see what kind of items are obtainable and how one's biorhythm can
       impact items received.

QUEST MODE                                                               [QSTM]
_______________________________________________________________________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Quest Mode is essentially exhibition maps where one can obtain rare items,
 and can be accessed from the title screen. Loading Quest Mode requires having
 a save file that has at least one "book" (map) unlocked. All maps have a
 certain leader, a couple lackeys whose presence is semi-randomized, and all
 of these have a fixed level. All maps except Numida Chronology also have an
 entrance fee, and only 5 allies can be brought to each fight.

 To obtain treasures, the player must first set a goal (kill leader or kill
 everyone within a set number of turns) and reach that goal. Failing to reach
 the goal earns nothing and loses the entrance fee! To get the best treasures
 and cash (goth) reward, it's best to either defeat the leader in 1-3 turns
 or everyone within 1-9.

 Some good ways to make Quest Mode easier:

 • ENERGY TRANSFER - Basically an early form of Fluid Magic (Euphaire-only)
 • FLUID MAGIC ----- Lets one huge amounts of MP to target
 • TELEPORT -------- Can teleport user anywhere on map
 • TIME FLUX ------- Target gets a 2nd turn

 High-movement characters like hawkmen and swordmasters, and special skill
 users (Atropos, etc.) are highly recommended for the maps which need to be
 traversed quickly. Other notes:

 • Enemies can't be invited
 • Allies can't die permanently in maps
 • Experience/level-ups can't be gained
 • There are no buried treasures
 • Equipment won can only be equipped in the main game

---

 Here's an overview of each map. I highly suggest checking out the following
 link which can tell in-depth what prizes can be obtained by doing what. It's
 a lot better than my guestimates! [http://tacticsogre.com/quests.htm]

NUMIDA CHRONOLOGY
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Obtain: Clear Battle #4 (Formido)
 Fee --: none
 Payout: 1200 [max]
 Leader: Calais (Ninja)
 Foes -: Cleric, Archer, Ninja, Soldier
 FoeLVs: 20
 Map --: Numida Swamp

 This is the first map obtained and it's one of the best, not just because it
 has no entrance fee, but because it's an early way to obtain some half-decent
 equipment (either for keeps or selling). Basically, one can make free cash
 here! The opposition is made up of low-DEF, high-movement characters so it's
 often best to deal a coup de grace with Atropos (etc.) in conjunction with
 Teleport to finish quickly. 

 The best obtainable items here end up being elemental mail (Nathalork,
 Peregrine, Phoenix, Leviathan) which outclasses any storebought stuff, and
 some elemental bows (Sandstorm, Flame, etc.) which are good weapons to get
 in the early chapters. No powerful swords, unfortunately, but Volcaetus spears
 can be won here -- although one can already be dug up at Aquila.

EPIC OF TINEA
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Obtain: Clear Battle #11 (Aquila)
 Fee --: 3000g
 Payout: 5000g [max]
 Leader: Khiel (Valkyrie)
 Foes -: Archer, Cerberus, Knight, Hawkman, Red Dragon, Wizard
 FoeLVs: 20
 Map --: Tinea

 Similar to Aquila, the land is steep and carved by rivulets of untraversable
 lava, so trudging units end up sucking a bit here. The human enemies aren't
 that great in the DEF department but the monsters (dragons, cerberus) can be
 more than a handful if one tries to slay everyone.

 The best item winnable here is the Glass Pumpkin, which needs to be sold to
 Pumpkinhead's Scabellum shop in order to unlock the Firecrest (this is part
 of Deneb's quest). Other than that, there's a few axe and flail types to win
 -- Flame Flail, Prox, Hammer of Tears, etc. Sword-wise, one can win the Needle
 of Light or Peridot Sword, neither of which is too awesome.

CAVE EXPLORATION
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Obtain: Clear Battle #19a/b (Ostorea Crypt)
 Fee --: 6000g
 Payout: 10000g [max]
 Leader: Zweig (Warlock)
 Foes -: Dragon Zombie, Earth Dragon, Ghost, Hawkman, Siren, Witch
 FoeLVs: 25
 Map --: Eastern Cavern

 This is where the maps start to get really annoying. The ally team starts
 one edge of a giant pit rimmed with paths, while the foes start all the way
 across -- there's no easy shortcut to them! High-movement and flying types
 do well here, but warping ones do even better. The Teleport spell really
 earns its keep here. Most foes are pretty average, but the Dragon Zombie with
 a Necklace of Resist, and Zweig with his Petrifying Cloud spell, can be 
 trouble if left to their own devices, particularly when the goal's to defeat
 everyone. One random knight can have insane DEF (350+) thanks to his rare
 equips, so consider Divine Radiance or Petrifying Cloud to eliminate him
 quickly.

 The Necromancy spell here can be won by earning 10000g (Kill Leader, 1-3turn)
 and lets one transmigrate KO'd allies into ghosts or zombie dragons. It's a
 necessary piece to getting The Cycle of Life emblem on someone.

 The best items to win here are the Warp Shoes and Warp Ring, giving the unit
 equipped with 'em the best type of movement! Other than that, rare katanas
 (Yomogi-u, Yu-giri) can be won as well, if that ninja or swordmaster's itchin'
 to use one. The Grincer Coat, part of the Enchanted Hunting Wares set, can be
 obtained here also.

BATRAAL CHRONOLOGY
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Obtain: Clear Cave Exploration in under 10 turns
 Fee --: 15000g
 Payout: 22000g [max]
 Leader: Byron (Swordmaster)
 Foes -: Cerberus, Dragoon, Gorgon, Hawkman, Knight, Priest, Siren, Vrtra
 FoeLVs: 30
 Map --:

 This is another map where high-movement, flying, and warping characters will
 excel in. The terrain is basically a long thin path with a huge abyss in-
 -between, and each team starts opposite each other. The boss himself isn't
 that much of a DEF titan and can be two-shotted by Atropos, although there's
 a Priest who can appear that may make that 1-3 turn limit a bit harder to
 reach. Note that a hawkman with a Brionac (may inflict instant death) can
 appear on this level, and the Vrtra's -1 mental gauge can lower skill damage
 so that the leader survives! One of the few times that may affect the outcome
 of something...

 There's a few good items to get by beating this level promptly, the best of
 which are Reincarnation (item), the Freude Helm and Holy Crown headgears,
 and the treasure-sensing Dowsing Rod. However, undoubtedly the best prize is
 the Lachesis skill for bow-wielding characters, which is like Atropos but has
 long-range capabilities, in typical bow fashion. It can only be learned once
 but if there's no bow-wielder on the team, it can be declined -- beating the
 map again gives the option to learn it again. [Other items obtainable: Sacred
 Stone of Bliss, Balmung, Sherwood Bow, etc.]

 NOTE: Only one special skill can be learned per character.

TUNDRA GEOLOGY
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Obtain: Clear Batraal Chronology in under 05 turns
 Fee --: 28000g
 Payout: 38000g [max]
 Leader: Dionyde (Priest)
 Foes -: Fairy, Gorgon, Knight, Naga, Siren, Vrtra
 FoeLVs: 35
 Map --: Ancient Ruins

 The final map is also the hardest, as Dionyde's equipment boosts her defense
 to 350+, not to mention she has Divine Radiance and Heal Plus to make things
 annoying. The map can be done in 3 turns time, although it may be easier to
 make the goal "kill everyone, 9 turns max" in order to get the best rewards.
 Lachesis and Atropos help immensely here, as does Teleport/Time Flux, Fluid
 Magic, and Divine Radiance. Surrounding Dionyde prevents her from healing
 herself, too, as AI is wont to do. [This is another time when stacking a -1
 mental gauge can let more damage be inflicted.] I don't suggest attempting
 this level unless one has high-movement units like swordmasters, and all the
 applicable teammates have warp technology. Oh, and watch out for Dionyde as
 she likes to hide in a corner where attack opportunities are lessened!

 The best items here are the virtue-oriented Saint's Shield and Southern Cross
 equipment, as well as the Kerykeion (staff), Brionac (spear), and Oracion
 (sword). The latter is the best obtainable non-Snapdragon sword, making it a
 clear winner for the Atropos user in most cases. Beating the map once gives
 the final special skill, Clotho, too. It's geared towards spear-wielders and
 does piercing damage in the same attack pattern. Personally, I give it to my
 Hawkman who has the Zephyrus/Longicolnis. Having Clotho only makes winning
 Tundra Geology on subsequent visits easier!

 NOTE: I think it's a glitch, but Dionyde can attack with a Frozen Axe without
       having one equipped. What a cheater! :p

 There's four real endings to the game, plus another "bad ending" available.
 The requirements for getting the endings are usually quite simple -- either
 be on Path A/B, bring Eleanor with, etc., although the A+ ending takes a bit
 more doing. Additionally, Alphonse can only get Relix's Emblem and The Cycle
 of Life by getting the A+/A/B/C/D and Game Over endings, respectfully.

 Once an ending is obtained, the game autosaves over the most recently used
 file, putting the user on the world map. Angel's Headstone is available to
 play again, if so desired, letting the player try for a new ending (within
 the path's constraints, of course).

 Some endings' scenes change depending on what story characters are alive, so
 for best results, keep everyone alive. Duh!

A+ ENDING
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 • Alphonse must kill 50+ enemies [Training doesn't count]
 • Five or fewer allies permanently die
 • Beat the game within 25 hours

A ENDING
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 • Battle #06: Start "Path A" when talking to Cybil (1st option)
 • Battle #10: Let Eleanor join the team after battle (1st option)
 • Battle #25-26: Include Eleanor in both battles
 • Battle #26: Defeat boss

B ENDING
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 • Battle #06: Start "Path B" when talking to Cybil (2nd option)
 • Battle #10: Let Eleanor join the team after battle (1st option)
 • Battle #25-26: Include Eleanor in both battles
 • Battle #26: Defeat boss

C ENDING
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 • Battle #10: Let Eleanor join the team after battle (1st option)
 • Battle #25-26: Eleanor, while alive, isn't included in these battles
 • Battle #26: Defeat boss

D ENDING
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 • Battle #10: Don't let Eleanor join the team (2nd option)
 • Battle #26: [If Eleanor was invited at Battle #10] she dies during battle

"GAME OVER" ENDING
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 • Battle #26: Longicolnis wasn't brought to battle or Alphonse dies in fight

V. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS                                            [FAQZ]
_______________________________________________________________________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 [Q] - How do I change a unit's element and alignment?
 [A] - Elements can be changed by using a Mirror of the Gods, which copies the
       user's element onto another person. Alignment can be changed using a
       Tome of Discipline and Urn of Chaos, which leans the alignment closer
       to lawful and chaotic, respectfully.

 [Q] - What does "suspend data" do?
 [A] - If you're fighting a long battle and have to go do something else, just
       suspend data and pick up where y'left off next time the game's loaded.
       [This doesn't overwrite the current save; that can be used instead of
       the suspended data.] In this way, one can keep reloading the save to
       get the desired effect from status abnormalities, etc.

 [Q] - What's knockback?
 [A] - This is when an attack causes the target to move from their current
       location. Most weapon attacks have a chance of doing this, and some
       (usually enemy-only) abilities have a 100% if inflicting it. Hitting a
       target with the shield is an easy way to produce knockback. [Knocking
       someone off a drop-off higher than they can normally jump produces "fall
       damage," extra damage due to the height of the drop.]

 [Q] - Hey, I couldn't dig up this buried treasure! What gives?
 [A] - There's two explanations: (1) the topsoil is covered by grass or snow,
       which must be burned away by non-summon fire magic first (2) for some
       reason, the treasure can't be unearthed in mandatory play; try it again
       in Training Mode.

 [Q] - How can I get more Tomes of Discipline, Urns of Chaos, etc.
 [A] - These can be dropped by Mushus and Vrtras, respectively. 

 [Q] - Why can't I use the Reincarnation item!
 [A] - It's "not usable by mortals," which means only undead characters can
       use it (on themselves).
