WARNING! GUIDE CONTAINS SMALL SPOILERS! But rarely. Updates: First Update, 3/9/2006 Added a bunch of prices and fixed some spelling mistakes. Made the “items” Section into a more specific group of groups. This FAQ was written by (iam)Max(hailme). That's me! :) If you want to email me, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, my AIM is iammaxhailme, and my MSN is the same as my email address. I don't have YIM, sorry. You can email me for anything, besides pointless stupid things like YOU SUCK and how do I turn on my game? and other idiocy like that. If you find that something is missing from here that you think should be in there, email me and tell me. If it's a big thing, I'll give you credit. This FAQ is copyright me, iammaxhailme. OK, that's it. Remember, questions, put on site requests, etc go to email@example.com Also, check the FAQs before you email me. Things you can email me: Questions about Fire Emblem (check the other FAQs first though) Suggestions for something relavent Constructive Criticisms Asking to put the FAQ on your site (ask once, if I say no, then it's no. But I don't usually have a reason to say no anyway). Things NOT to email me: Things with a lot of forwards Flame mail Horrible english If you email me something that's obviously in an FAQ, whether I wrote it or not, I'm just linking you to it. You have to check the FAQs before asking someone a question; we write the for a reason. Saying they're "too long" is stupid. Just use control + F and find something. For example, email me this: Hi, I was wonder how you can do ____? I just emailed to let you know your stats for something are wrong. They're really XX. Don't email me: hi i no u no how to do ____ so tell me becuz i wil kill u if u dont because then u r lame ur wrong with your stats, you retard! You are such a dumbass. rofl go kill urself u dumbass The FAQ cannot be sold in any way. You can print out a copy for you and your friends or whatever, but you can't sell it or claim you wrote it. Also, if you want to post it on your site, email me first. If I let it on your site, check here once in a while to see if it's been updated. The main version of this and all my FAQs will always be here at gameafqs. First off, lots of credit to the codebreaker codes FAQ for providing some of the weapon codes that I needed to screw with to find some of this information. Monster weapons are harder to figure out then the regular weapons. I assume that's why they're not in the weapons FAQ. (No offense to the FAQ author). So for those of you who are curious to how strong these weapons are, I made this FAQ for you. :) They're harder to figure out because it takes a while to do all the hit, power, etc formulas, because when you press R on them, it doesn’t show you their stats, just a description. I'm going to include them in this FAQ also. If you need to find something quickly, hold control and press F, then type the thing you need to find in the box and search. If what you're looking for isn't here, tell me if you think it's important. This is the format I'm going to be using. Weapon Name Description: This is what it tells you if you press R on it. Weapon Level: Some weapons need your character to have a certain weapon level in it to be used. To raise your weapon level, just use that weapon a lot. Note: You can only have 1 S rank per character, besides Lyon, who can S rank Dark and Staves. Certain weapons can only be used by certain classes. For example, the Rapier can only be used by female lords. Without hacking, that's only Eirika. But if you hack someone into a female lord or great lord, they'll be able to use it too. Range: This is how far the weapon can shoot or stab or whatever. Weight: This is how heavy the weapon is. The more weight, the more CON you need to use it without Attack Speed loss. Might: This is how powerful the weapon is. The more MT, the more damage you do Hit: How accurate the weapon is. More of this means it's easier for your unit to hit your enemy. Crit: This is the critical hit percent of your weapon. The more you have, the more likely it is that you will score a critical hit, and do triple damage. There's a few different effects. Poison makes you lose a bit of health at the beginning of your turn for a few turns, sleep makes you not be able to do anything, etc. Price: This is how much the weapon costs if you find it in a store. Note: You can't find any of the monster weapons in a store, but you can buy some of the items that are listed below them. Many of them, like the stat boosters and the promotion items, are very expensive. When you want or need to buy these, I recommend that you wait until you get the silver card, an item that cuts all costs of items in half. You can get it in chapter 15, Scorched Sands. To see where, see the treasure map picture FAQ. Location: This is where you can get the item, if you can. I can't list every single place, so see the itemfinder/shopfinder/whatever FAQ for more details on that. Some locations I'll reference commonly are "some shops", which is most of them. There's the secret shops, which are on the following spots: Jehanna Hall, Grado Keep, and Rausten Court. You need to have the member card to get it. You can't get in from the map until creature campaign, which is after the game. ================= =MONSTER WEAPONS= ================= These weapons are not obtainable besides through hacking. They can only be used by certain monsters. Some monsters use normal weapons like swords, though All of these weapons have infinite uses, besides Nightmare, which has 1, and a few others which I'll put the uses in. Also, note that Myrrh the Mamkute can use the Demon king's weapons. So, I assume all Mamkutes can. ======= =CLAWS= ======= Sharp Claw Range 1 Might: 14 Hit: 65 Weight: 14 Crit: 0 Rotten Claw Range 1 Might 7 Hit: 8 Crit: 0 Fetid Claw Range: 1 Might: 11 Hit: 75 Crit: 0 Poison Claw Might 6 Hit 65 Crit 0 Effect: Poisons enemy ======= =FANGS= ======= Fiery Fang Might: 5 Hit: 90 Crit: 0 Hellfang Might: 13 Hit: 80 Crit: 0 =========================== =EYES AND OTHER DARK STUFF= =========================== Demon Surge Dark - Range 1-2 Weight 10 Might 11 Hit 80 Crit 0 Shadowshot Dark - Range: 3-10 Weight 20 Might 13 Hit 70 Crit 5 Uses 5 Evil Eye Dark - Range 1-2 Weight 6 Might 7 Hit 85 Crit 0 Crimson Eye Dark - Range 1-2 Weight 13 Might 14 Hit 70 Crit 5 Stone Range 1-3 Weight 8 Might 0 Hit 65 Crit 0 Effect: Turns an enemy to Stone. When you're stoned (hehe), you can't move or dodge, and your opponent's crit goes up to 30 when they attack you. In other words, you're probably screwed. ================= =MAMKUTE WEAPONS= ================= I'm putting these here for lack of a better place. These can be used by Myrrh, the Mamkute of this game. Dragonstone Boosts: Str + 12 Skl + 12 Def + 15 Res + 20 Might: 26 Hit: 100 Crit: 15 Myrrh comes with one of these, but when it's done, you're not getting any more so be careful with it. After it's gone Myrrh is useless. Wretched Air Boosts to the holder: Str + 10 Skl + 10 Def + 20 Res + 10 Might: 10 Hit: 95 Crit: 0 Weight: Less then 6 Price: You can't get this weapon. ============ =DEMON KING= ============ Nightmare Staff - Range 1-3 Effect: Puts everyone in range to sleep Uses: 1 Only the demon king has this, so I put it in the monster weapon section, not staves. Demon Light (Does magic damage) Boosts to the User: Str + 10 Skl + 10 Luck + 10 Def + 10 Res + 15 Might: 15 Hit: 60 Crit: 0 Ravager (does physical damage) Boosts: Str + 10 Skl + 10 Luck + 10 Def + 10 Res + 15 Might: 15 Hit: 60 Crit: 0 ===================== =STAT-BOOSTING ITEMS= ===================== These items permanently raise the stat in question by a certain amount. They are very rare and expensive, so don't be stupid with them. All of them only have 1 use and cost 8,000 gold where you can buy them, which is in secret shops. Sadly, you can't buy these. There's an RNG trick to make them appear, but I don't know much about it. Try the RNG FAQ. Thanks to DragonRuler1216@aol.com for telling me that I didn't have this info in here. Angelic Robe Effect: Raises HP by 7 Energy Ring Effect: Raises Strength or Magic by 2 Secret Book Effect: Increases Skill by 2 Speedwing Effect: Raises Speed by 2 Goddess Icon Effect: Raises Luck by 2 Dragonshield Effect: Raises Defense by 2 Talisman Effect: Raises Res by 2 Swiftsole/Boots Effect: Raises movement by 2 Sadly, you can't buy these. There's an RNG trick to make them appear, but I don't know much about it. Try the RNG FAQ. Body Ring Effect: Raises CON by 2 ================= =PROMOTION ITEMS= ================= These items are used to change classes into other classes. To see what classes can become other classes, check the class promotion chart FAQ. They all have 1. You can only promote when you're level 10 or more, but you should wait until level 20 so your characters get more level ups so they are better in the end. They all cost 10,000 Gold, except the Master seal, which costs 20,000. If you have a Master Seal and a silver card, you might as well sell the master seal for two regular promotion items, since they all have 1 use anyway. Also, you only get 1 Lunar Brace and Solar Brace. You can get them all in random skirmishes or in the tower/ruins on the map if you're lucky. Otherwise, you'll have to buy them in a secret shop or get them in the in-game events, which are limited anyway. Hero Crest Promotes Myrmidons, Fighters, Mercenaries, and Level 2 Journeymen. Knight Crest Promotes Cavaliers, Knights, and Level 2 Recruits. Orion's Bolt Promotes Archers (Only Neimi can use this, she's the only archer) Elysian Whip Promotes Wyvern riders and Pegasus Knights Guiding Ring Promotes Shamans, Mages, Clerics, Priests, Monks, Troubadours, and Level 2 Pupils. Ocean Seal Promotes Thieves and Pirates Master Seal Promotes Any unpromoted class besides Mamkute, Thief, Pirate, Dancer, Necromancer, and Lord. Lunar Brace Promotes Female Lords Solar Brace Promotes Male Lords ============== =COMMON ITEMS= ============== These are items that you can buy in most stores and are used commonly in maps.

Obviously you can't buy these because there would be no point. Black Gem Sell it for 15,00 Gold. You can only get these in the ruins, near the bottom. Check the ruins FAQ for exact locations. Gold Gem Sell it for 20,000 Gold Boss of the entire ruins has it!

Bag of Gold If you kill a monster, you get the gold. You don't get the bag, so there won't be anything in your inventory, you'll just know if you check your status or go in a shop. You only get these from monsters in the tower, ruins, or skirmishes. =========== =EQUIPTION= =========== These are things that protect you from certain things. Fili Shield Makes fliers not weak to arrows when they have it with them You can't buy these. You get two, when you kill/steal it from Valter in the desert, and when you get him in the ruins. Hoplon Guard When you're holding it, your opponent's crit percent goes down to 0 while they are in a battle with you. You can't buy them. You can only get 2. When you kill Callaech and when you get him in the tower. ============ =RARE ITEMS= ============ These are things that are either one of a kind or things that you can only get by cheating or hacking. All the dummies are hack only. Dummy (7b) It's like a light rune from FE7. When you put it down, it blocks a space for a few turns so you can't walk by it. Dummy (Code 7A) It's the same as a Mine from FE7. I don't know if the glitch still works. When you put it down, it's hidden, and the next person to walk over it loses 10 HP. Dummy (7D) It's like Filla's might from FE7. Dancer only. The target's attack is raised for a turn. Dummy (7e) It's like Nini's Grace from FE7. Dancer only. The target's defense and res are raised for one turn. Dummy (7f) It's like Thor's Ire from FE7. Dancer Only. The target's crit is raised for a turn. Dummy (80) It's like Set's Litany from FE7. Dancer only. The target's dodge is raised for a turn. Metis's Tome Raises your stat growths by 5%. You only get 1, it's in the desert map. See the desert treasure map FAQ. Member Card Lets you in Secret Shops when you have it with you You can't buy these. The only way to get one is to steal it from, kill for, or recruit Rennac in chapter 14. He's holding it. Silver Card Makes anything in any shop cost half when you have it with you You can't buy this, you have to get it in the desert. See the desert map for more specifics. Juna Fruit Use this and your level drops by a few. This is actually good, because you can level up again and get more stats. You can only see this by hacking. (Code b7. Yep.) ======= =OTHER= ======= This section is for things that I don't know what they are for. You can't get any of them without hacking. Stone Shard (Code a7) I have no idea what this is used for. It looks like a red gem, but you can't sell it. It's description is dummy, and when you try to use it, it says "you can't equip this weapon" with everybody. Gorgon Lance E Weight -- Might -- Hit -- Crit 1 Uses -- Note: I have no idea what is with this weapon. You can only get it by hacking. It says Lance E, but nobody can wield it. So don't worry about it. Dummy Sword - Range 1 All other stats: 0 It brings your battle stats down to 0, so it's not good to use. Dummy Dark - Range 1-2 Weight 10 Might 11 Hit 80 Crit 0 It's icon looks like an iron sword. Freezes game if used. OK, well, that's it. If I missed anything big, email or IM me, my addresses are at the top, and email me with any FE6-8 related questions that you need answered, I have too much time. So don’t worry about it if you think you’re wasting it, there’s plenty to spare. :P lol Thanks to DragonRuler1216@aol.com for telling me that you can't buy Boots in secret shops.
