Then go up and speak with the little bird on the pitch. Then go down again and speak with the bird again (she'll say the same thing as before). Now exit from the castle (not from town).

Taya is in Mitula's shirine, she's a statue, but when you'll speak with her she'll turn to human and join your force. V.

Warrior Pride is in Granseal, in the room where you can speak with all your friend, search on the banner on the wall and you'll find it.

General hints - Taros can only be defeated using Achilles sword. To get it you have to go in Ribble and use the WOODEN PANEL (that you'll find in a chest in the HOBGOBLIN TUNNEL) on the tree. A passage will open. Inside you'll find the sword. Only the leader can use that weapon. Neither spell nor other characters may damage Taros. Taros using his sword will cause a second level bolt. - To have a greater probability to obtain the best items from the dwarven blacksmith, make 2 ordinations each time, i tried 10 times to get Gisarme, then i turn off the Genesis, when i tried again, i ordered a weapon for Slade and one for Sara, i obtained at the first try the Gisarme and Giant Knuckles. - To create a very powerfull group first of all: DON'T promote any character till he reach level 40. It's a bit difficult go on without promotions but it will be very usefull going on with the game. Mine prefered strategy to reach level 40 is this: kill Taros, then use the desert as your training camp: in the desert monster continue to appeare even if you defeat them, so give the protect ring to thc character you want to reach level 40 and continue using it (for each time you use it on 5 people that aren't yet boosted you gain 25 exp). if it's going to brake, repair it and so on. While you do this with the first one make Sara cast an heal spell for each turn so she will go on with levels very quickly. After 3 members of your team have reach level 40 the second part of the training will start. It's better you start promoting people who has only one possible one promotion, my suggestion is to promote the Leader, Luke and Sara (to MMNK, there are 2 vigor balls so you don't need to compare her with Karna). Now go to the fairy stage with these three and a couple of other character, for example Peter and Geralt. At the beginning let LESSER DEMONS appear, till your three main character reach level 7 then put someone on the spot and move the Leader and Luke near the spot where MIST DEMON appears. Start increasing the two character level. Peter would be quick enough to act before MIST DEMON if that's not, make him equip QUICK RING, that would be enough. However when you see that the leader and Luke make 50-55 HP damage to MIST DEMON, then send Peter or geralt to attack him, they will earn always 49 exp if the demon is killed. So they'll reach quickly level 40. Repeat this steps with every member of your group. Someone is too slow to act before MIST DEMON, so you'll have to use some defensive strategy, mine personal will be explained at the end of this paragraph. When any character reach level 40 promo him. except for Warriors, Knights and Mages. For these it's better you wait to have the comparison, in fact you can promote only one knight to pegasus knight, so you'll select wich one to give maximum promotion when all of them will be at level 40. In fairy stage promoted characters can reach level 23 and till you'll start to fight with Greater devils (from Zalbard) you won't fnd any difficult, and if you think that is hard to reach level 32 in the game... Naturally people that will join your group after Janet (from Rohde) will become useless.. Rhode joined mine group with 35 HP... when the other BRGN (in my case Elric) had more than 100 HP.... - battle plan for slower characters in fairy stage C represent your strong character P is your character too but is the one MIST DEMON attacks, it changes every time but usually is the leader, however put in that position the attacked character Q as well is one of yours but is on the spot where LESSER DEMON would appear A is another character but he will attack the demon before he moves while all the other will do nothing (remember: make sure that L can kill demon with one shot!!!) L is the weak character X is where MIST DEMONS will appear - are empy squares (remember: every simble represent a square, so C P means that in a square is a person, and in the adjacent one (on the right) there's another) first second third fourth fifth - C - - X A - C - - - A - C - - - A - C - - X A - C - - - A - - C - - C - - C - - C - - C - - C - - C - - C - - C X - C - Q - - C - - Q - X C - - Q L - C - - Q L P C - - Q L P C - - - C P - - - - C P - - - - C P - - - - C - - - - - C - - - - L - - - - - L - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - X will appear X will move L will move P will make X attack P make and A attack and attack P up and kill X one steps to someone else kill him protect L while X and make L retreat X appears again and restart.
