|  --------o--------\                        Rim Elm                         |
|__     (00001)      \-------------------------------------------------------o

o------- Item Checklist -------o  When you have control of Vahn, leave the 
|                              |  Genesis Tree area and begin to explore the 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  town.  There are a few places you should 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  definitely note.  When you leave a girl 
| Hunter Clothes........._____ |  approaches you, the choices you make really 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  don't have much of an effect, so just choose 
|                              |  based on whatever conversation you would 
o------------------------------o  like to hear.  Toward the gate at the 
                                  top of town and to the right is an entrance 
to a little save with a save point inside, be sure to familiarize yourself 
with what they look like.  Leave the cave and head to the bottom of town where 
the beach is, on the left side you will find a bald man named Tetsu.  Ask to 
practice fighting with him and he'll give you a 'Healing Leaf.'  Fighting in 
this game is unique but not difficult.  You fight battles primarily with the 
directional pad, press left to begin, left to attack, right to input manually 
and then press any direction to input your commands in the bar.  He'll also 
teach you how to use items and use spirit.  Before finishing Tetsu will teach 
you a new art which will come in handy.  Head for the house at the lower right 
side of the town, above the beach, this is Vahn's house.  After the scene 
examine your cupboard at the upper left corner to get a 'Healing Leaf.'  Now 
leave your house for another scene.  Leave Mei's house and return to your own.  
Speak to your father and agree to rest.  During the night when you go outside, 
head for the front gate of town and speak to the elder.  Now it's time for 
your first real battle, your enemy is a Gimard.  Use the up, down, up 
somersault command to defeat this enemy with ease.  Remember to use a Healing 
Leaf if the enemy damages you, particularly with the Tail Fire ability.  Run 
around the left side and head for the Genesis Tree.  After touching the tree 
and acquiring the power of Meta, leave the area.  As you run around the 
village you will likely get into another random battle with a Gimard.  Take a 
look beside Gimard's name and notice the little elemental icon of fire.  This 
icon shows that this particular enemy can be absorbed by your Ra-Seru.  
Enemies which you absorb can be summoned like magic spells so you'll 
definitely want to try and acquire Gimard here.  It may sound a little early 
to mention this but every single acquire-able enemy appears in the final 
dungeon, so you don't need to make a big deal over going missing any.  
Regardless, return to Vahn's house and speak to Val.  A number of scenes 
follow and soon enough it will be morning.  Go to leave the town and Mei comes 
running.  She gives you the 'Hunter Clothes.'  Open up the menu screen and 
equip the Hunter Clothes.  Before leaving town head down and right to reach 
the item shop which is now open, pick up a weapon and the boots as well if you

can afford them.  It's finally time to leave Rim Elm and set out on your 
adventure.  Save your game on the world map and then make your way up and left 
(Northwest) until you see a kind of object that looks like a pool.  Speak to 
the man here that everyone is talking about then check out the far right side 
to find a chest containing 'Healing Leaf.'  The statues above the chest offer 
some helpful hints about the game while the fountain below the statues will 
heal your HP & MP to full again as many times as you like.  For this reason 
it's a good idea to level up around the map outside this place then 
periodically come back here to heal yourself.  Your destination is the castle 
Northwest of the fountain, just follow the path and you can't miss it.

|__     (00002)      \-------------------------------------------------------o

o------- Item Checklist -------o  I would recommend at least level three for 
|                              |  the castle, but level four is a better bet.  
| Door of Light.........._____ |  Approach the castle gate and check the right 
| Sunrise Key............_____ |  side for a chest containing 'Door of 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  Light.'  Enter the castle and ascend the 
| Lightning Key.........._____ |  stairs.  At the top go left and proceed 
| Star Key..............._____ |  through the door.  You'll see a sparkling 
| Survival Knife........._____ |  object in the corner beside the prison cell, 
| Fire Book I............_____ |  examine it to get the 'Sunrise Key.'  Leave 
| Mountain Key..........._____ |  the room and examine the door in the centre, 
|                              |  use the Sunrise Key to open it.  At the top 
o------------------------------o  of the stairs go immediately left and up to 
                                  the upper left corner.  There's a chest 
containing 'Healing Leaf.'  Go straight down through the door below the chest 
and across to the right side of the room.  There's another sparkling object 
here, this one contains the 'Lightning Key.'  Leave this room and use the key 
on the door in the middle, at the top.  Climb the stairs once again then when 
you reach the top make a right, and go down.  Yet another sparkling object 
here, this one contains the 'Star Key.'  Leave the room and head to the left 
side, the room at the bottom there has a chest containing 'Survival Knife.'  
Use the Star Key on the door outside and go up this last set of stairs.  Head 
either left or right then down.  The door in the middle leads up to the throne 
room.  Enter the room to the right of the throne.  You can rest here to fully 
restore your HP & MP.  Open the chest in the corner to get the 'Fire Book I.'  
This is an extremely good item, use it in the menu to learn one of Vahn's 
Hyper Arts, Tornado Flame.  Tornado Flame can be performed by using a right, 
right, left combination.  You can check out all combinations you have in the 
status menu.  Note that Hyper Arts use a lot more AP than normal arts, AP can 
be restored using Spirit.  Save your game and leave the room.  Go into the 
room on the left side of the throne, open the chest here.  There's a note 
inside from the king.  Examine the shining object in the corner to get the 
'Mountain Key.'  Return to the area around the top of the stairs and use the 
Mountain Key to open up the gate.  You'll find yourself on the world map after 
this, save your game then follow the path West to reach the mountain.

|  --------o--------\                         Cave                           |
|__     (00003)      \-------------------------------------------------------o

o------- Item Checklist -------o  As the red haired girl, go up and speak to 
|                              |  the wolf.  Follow the wolf as it goes 
| Healing Shroom........._____ |  through the cave, you'll be asked a number 
| Healing Shroom........._____ |  of questions as you go.  The answer to the 
| Healing Shroom........._____ |  first question is "Seru and human."  The 
|                              |  answer to the second questions is "A Genesis 
o------------------------------o  Tree."  At this point go up above where the 
                                  wolf was sitting and get the 'Healing 
Shroom.'  The answer to the third and final question is "Mt. Rikuroa."  Below 
this is an area where you'll have to practice fighting against some monsters.  
Start with the Black Piura enemies as they are easier.  After each battle go 
up and speak to TErra the wolf, it will lick your wounds and fully restore 
your HP & MP.  Noa has an art ability just like Vahn's, simply use the down, 
up, down command.  Once you've reached level two speak to the wolf and agree 
to head back to get something to eat.  You can always keep training if you 
wish.  On the first screen on the way back check the upper right for another 
'Healing Shroom.'  On your way back suddenly you will be faced with random 
battles.  Note that at the moment Noa has no Ra-Seru so don't bother working 
to try and acquire any magic spells yet.  Follow the cave path to the end, 
it's quite linear so you won't get lost.  Part way through the wolf Terra will 
join your party, at that point you won't have to worry too much about healing 
since Terra will usually take care of it for you.  You should find another 
'Healing Shroom' on the way out.  Approach Mt. Rikuroa from the North side.

|__     (00004)      \-------------------------------------------------------o

o------- Item Checklist -------o  Follow the path as it leads you past a chest 
|                              |  containing 'Healing Leaf' and a save point.  
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  Enter the cave and open the chest just 
| Scarlet Jewel.........._____ |  beside you on the right to receive 'Scarlet 
| Power Water............_____ |  Jewel.'  Further along the path is a 'Power 
| Phoenix................_____ |  Water' in the chest and then at the end of 
| Speed Elixir..........._____ |  the road, a boss.  You will have the chance
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  to access the menu and prepare yourself
| Vahn Fist.............._____ |  before actually approaching the boss and
| Healing Bloom.........._____ |  triggering the beginning of the battle.
|                              |  
o------------------------------o  
                                  
o-- BOSS "Golem" ------------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| Since you've got Terra with you it's going to be extremely hard to lose    |
| against this boss given Terra will always heal you when your HP gets down  |
| to critical levels and that's not to mention of course any healing you     |
| give yourself.  Really all you need to do for this battle since you still  |
| don't have any magic spells is use the Spirit ability to boost up your     |
| attack meter.  After doing that input the following command, you should    |
| have six slots: up, down, up, down, up, down.  That should maximize        |
| your damage.  This battle is going to be easier obviously if the boss      |
| focuses his attacks on Terra.  The boss has two attacks, a basic physical  |
| attack and a much more powerful attack called Jagged Earth.  If you use    |
| Spirit right before the boss uses Jagged Earth on you the damage will be   |
| reduced significantly so that's always a bonus.                            |
|                                                                            |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

When the boss has been defeated leave the cave and watch the scene.  Soon 
enough you'll have control again and you can follow the path right then enter 
the next part of the cave.  You'll find a treasure chest near the beginning 
containing 'Phoenix.'  Use the save point beside the chest and leave the cave.
Now you'll be in control of Vahn once again.  Begin jumping up the platforms a 
couple of times and go right, then down to find a chest containing 'Speed 
Elixir.'  Go up from the chest and jump to reach the cave entrance.  At the 
fork take the right path leading out of the cave.  Jump across the platforms 
to the next cave area and begin climbing.   On the right side if you drop down 
you'll find a chest with 'Healing Leaf.'  Keep jumping up to the top and on 
the edge of the cliff is a chest containing 'Vahn Fist.'  Take note that you 
can fight an enemy called Vera in this area with the holy element.  You're 
definitely going to want to do everything you can to acquire this Seru spell, 
it's the first healing magic spell in the game and pretty much the only one 
you're going to come across for quite awhile.  Return to the fork in the path 
and take the left branch this time.  Jump up and grab the 'Healing Bloom' then 
go through the opening.  At the end of the tunnel is a save point, remember to 
get the vera spell before going and fighting the boss, you'll need it.

o-- BOSS "Caruban" ----------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| This is the first real boss of the game, and they certainly don't make it  |
| easy for you.  Without Terra helping out in the battle and healing you     |
| it means you'll have to take care of things yourself.  Luckily Vahn is     |
| willing to help out and he's here with Meta and hopefully the Gimard and   |
| Vera spells as well.  Vahn should cast Gimard until he's down to about     |
| 20 MP which should give you about one or two uses.  Noa should use Spirit  |
| every othe turn and attack on the turns in between.  For some good arts    |
| attacks to use with six slots check out the lists of arts for each         |
| character at the bottom of this guide.  Caruban has a couple of normal     |
| attacks like the Flap attack and the Bite attack which both do moderate    |
| physical damage but can often be blocked especially if you used Spirit     |
| that turn.  After casting Gimard and running low on MP Vahn should switch  |
| over to the Tornado Flame attack which can be performed with the command   |
| right, right, left.  There's no need to Spirit charge for this one unless  |
| you're low on AP of course.  Now what you REALLY need to watch out for is  |
| the boss' Fire Breath attack, by far the most dangerous one you will face. |
| This attack deals a good 150 damage to not one but both of your party      |
| members.  Ouch.  The best way to recover from this is the use the Healing  |
| Bloom you picked up on the way to the boss, but remember you only have     |
| one so after that you'll need to use Vera or something.                    |
|                                                                            |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

Go over and examine the Genesis Tree to trigger a scene.  After the scene you 
need to leave the mountain, the easiest thing to do of course is use a Door of 
Light, it will drop you down at the Southern entrance and only a stone's throw 
from the Drake Castle which is no completely free of Mist thanks to you.

o------- Item Checklist -------o  Right when you enter the castle the king 
|                              |  gives you the 'Water Key.'  You'll need this 
| Water Key.............._____ |  to get to Biron Monastery.  Enter the room 
| Platinum Card.........._____ |  to the left side of the throne.  At the back 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  left corner of this room there is a generic 
| Swift Water............_____ |  looking black hole in the wall that looks no 
| Fighting Robe.........._____ |  different than any of the others that look

| Healing Shroom........._____ |  Vahn will receive the 'Platinum Card' which 
| Healing Shroom........._____ |  adds items to the inventories of most 
| Healing Shroom........._____ |  stores, a very rare find.  Leave this area 
| Healing Shroom........._____ |  and head downstairs two levels below.  Go 
| Healing Shroom........._____ |  through either the lower left or right door 
| Healing Shroom........._____ |  and open the chest to get a 'Healing Leaf.'  
| Healing Shroom........._____ |  Head down one more flight of stairs and 
| Healing Shroom........._____ |  enter the room on the right, the chest in 
| Healing Shroom........._____ |  here contains a 'Swift Water.'  Leave the 
| Point Card............._____ |  castle and check out the stores outside.  
| Wind Book I............_____ |  Speak to Noa and tell her you don't know 
| Phoenix................_____ |  what money is, doing so will net you a free 
|                              |  'Fighting Robe.'  Next go over and speak to 
o------------------------------o  Noa at the item shop.  She'll give you a 
                                  little quiz.  The answer to the first 
question is the "Healing Berry."  The answer to the second question is "Escape 
from the dungeon."  The answer to the third and final question is "Wats."  
Doing this correctly will net you ten 'Healing Shroom's.  Lastly go over and 
talk to Noa, tell her an inn is a place for sleeping.  Now get all the 
shopping done that you need.  There's tons of new equipment to upgrade.

Leave the castle but before doing anything with the Water Gate you'll want to 
return to Rim Elm, it's not that far away.  The first thing you'll want to do 
is head for the shop and notice the stock has been updated with three new

items.  After checking out the stock head upstairs in the shop.  There's a 
small bedside table there you can open and get the 'Point Card.'  The Point 
Card, like the Platinum Card is another super rare item.  This card will 
collect points every time you make a purchase, the more money you spend the 
more points it will get.  Whenever you want to you can get into a battle and 
use it as an item to deal damage to the enemy equal to the number of points on 
it, however doing so will totally empty the card so save it for a difficult 
boss.  Finally its time to head for the Water Gate which is just right of the 
Drake Castle main entrance.  After the gate has dropped you can open the chest 
in the waterway to get the 'Wind Book I' which will teach you Noa's first 
Hyper Arts, Frost Breath.  You'll notice on the other side that to the North 
is a whole bunch of super thick Mist.  You can't go up there yet but head in 
that direction anyway.  As you approach the scene will change to a closer view 
and you can grab a treasure chest there containing 'Phoenix.'  Follow the path 
East for quite a ways until it leads you to a structure on a bridge above a 
river.  You have finally made it across to the Biron Monastery.

door above you.  Next go into the room to the left of that one, you'll find an 
arms shop and item shop in here.  After this leave the room and go through 
either the lower left or lower right exit (not down the stairs though.)  At 
the top of the stairs here in the centre is Zopu's room, speak to him and 
watch the scene.  Speak to Master teacher at the lower left then Songi at the 
upper right, then to Zopu.  Agree to his request and then choose either 
option. No matter what you say you'll be going to West Voz Forest.  Once 
you're prepared, head toward Zopu's room and take the upper left exit.  This 
leads to the world map, go left at the fork and enter the West Voz Forest.

| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  'Medicine.'  After this go back left, brab 
| Shield Elixir.........._____ |  the 'Healing Leaf' along the way.  On the 
| Fertilizer............._____ |  next screen the path curves up, when it does 
| Medicine..............._____ |  it will also open up a bit and you'll see 
| Magic Amulet..........._____ |  two green coloured tunnels.  Go through the 
| Door of Light.........._____ |  left one and open the two chests to get 
| Noa Feral.............._____ |  'Shield Elixir' and 'Fertilizer.'  Next try 
| Healing Bloom.........._____ |  the one on the right, there's a chest with 
|                              |  'Medicine' inside.  From there make your way 
o------------------------------o  up, you'll come to a somewhat hard-to-see 
                                  path leading right where there is a chest 
with a 'Magic Amulet.'  When you reach the river use the Fertilizer on the 
little plant to get across.  On the other side there's a chest above you with 
a 'Door of Light' inside.  Continue staight up to the very top and open the 
chest containing 'Noa Feral.'  Left of that is a 'Healing Bloom' and below 
that a save point.  Take the upper left path to find the Genesis Tree and 
watch the scene.  Use a Door of Light to get out of the forest and then get 
back to Biron Monastery.  Head for the room with the shops to find everyone 
who managed to survive.  The shops are still open.  You can speak to the man 
on the left side to learn some new arts and speak to the girl beside the table 
to have her cook and fully restore your HP & MP.  When you're ready, leave the 
room and go one room right to Maya's room.  Watch the scene then read the 
unfinished letter on the floor.  Now it's time to leave the Biron Monastery 
and head for the East Voz Forest.  The the opposite side door from the one you 
took to get to West Voz and make your way up the world map to the forest.

o------- Item Checklist -------o  Once inside the East Voz Forest follow the 
|                              |  path left, you'll see a treasure box but you 
| Healing Flower........._____ |  cannot reach it at this point.  Go through 
| Weed Hammer............_____ |  the green tunnel on the right.  On the other 
| Magic Leaf............._____ |  side go up past the first left path and take 
| Guardian Water........._____ |  the second left path.  You'll find a chest 
| Healing Bloom.........._____ |  here containing 'Healing Flower.'  Continue 
| Cure Amulet............_____ |  up the path and make a right when you get 
| Antidote..............._____ |  the chance.  At the end of the path is 
| Survival Club.........._____ |  a chest with 'Weed Hammer' inside.  Using 
| Azure Jewel............_____ |  this hammer you can break those weeds in the 
|                              |  way using the X button, try it on the weeds 
o------------------------------o  right below you to access the chest 
                                  containing 'Magic Leaf.'  Return to the 
entrance of the forest where you say the chest you couldn't access, now you 
can break the weeds and go over to get a 'Guardian Water.'  Head up to the 
next screen and make an immediate right to find a chest containing 'Healing 
Bloom.'  Break the weeds at the top of the path and make a left through the 
tunnel.  At the end there's a chest with a 'Cure Amulet' inside.  Head back 
and go up to the next screen, make a left through the tunnel there as well and 
you'll come to an area with two treasure chests.  They contain 'Antidote' and 
'Survival Club.'  If you go up from there and around to the right you can get 
an 'Azure Jewel' from the other chest.  Be sure to equip that club on Gala and 
the jewel on anyone.  Make your way down from this chest and go right through 
the tunnel.  The path here leads directly up past a chest containing 
'Medicine' and up to a save point.  Be sure to fully heal and prepare your 
party before going any further up, there's a boss battle coming.

o-- BOSS "Viguro" x2 --------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| It seems you are only worthy of fighting two Seru enemies, but that's      |
| no matter at the moment, you need to focus on surviving this battle.  Like |
| many similar battles in any game, when you're fighting against two         |
| opponents the battle will always get exponentially easier once one of      |
| those two opponents is defeated, so remember to focus all your attacks on  |
| a single Viguro.  The bosses only have two attacks, but they are           |
| extremely nasty.  The normal physical attack can deal around 225 damage    |
| which will really hurt, fortunately it's only a physical attack so there's |
| a good chance you characters will block it from time to time.  The other   |
| more dangerous attack is the Thunder Break which deals about 225 damage    |
| of the Thunder element to a single party member and cannot be blocked.     |
| Fortunately however you do have one advantage, the Ra-Seru Egg you found   |
| in the West Voz Forest can be equipped as an accessory and serves to       |
| reduce Thunder based damage.  At least one character will have the         |
| benefit of it.  Vah and Noa should use Spirit every other turn (which will |
| also significantly reduce the amount of damage you take from Thunder       |
| Break) and then attack with their Hyper Arts when the chance arises.  At   |
| this point in the game Gala really sucks, not only does he have a small    |
| attack bar and no Hyper Arts, he also has no magic.  Gala definitely       |
| gets the job of being the item user, have him ready with a Healing Bloom   |
| but always try to predict when you'll need it and use it early since       |
| Gala is so slow he won't always use it at the beginning of the turn.       |
| As you could probably tell, the Viguro enemies have an element symbol      |
| beside their names and can indeed be absorbed into your Ra-Seru.  They're  |
| so powerful your maximum MP when full still probably isn't enough to       |
| actually use the magic, and it certainly isn't the last time you will see  |
| this enemy.  There's really no good reason to focus a lot of effort in     |
| trying to obtain them, but if you really want it, don't let me stop you.   |
|                                                                            |

o------- Item Checklist -------o  Soon enough you'll be back in Biron 
|                              |  Monastery again.  After speaking to Zopu 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  examine the urn on the right for a 'Healing 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  Bloom.'  Leave the room and return to the 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  room with the shops, speak to Maya and 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  she'll give you ten 'Healing Leaves.'  Check 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  the urns at the top of the room to find a 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  'Phoenix.'  Now, here's something important.  
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  Trust me in the long run, you're going to 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  want some Deep Sea Jewels for where you're 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  going, I know they're expensive but if 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  you can manage to afford three you'll be 
| Healing Bloom.........._____ |  totally set.  Note also that the arms 
| Phoenix................_____ |  shop has restocked, even more important 
|                              |  perhaps than those jewels is getting 
o------------------------------o  Gala some decent equipment so that you can 
                                  survive the coming battles.  I know that 
stuff is expensive in this game, sell whatever you don't need, and perhaps go 
out to do some leveling up, that will bring in some extra cash.  When you're 
ready to go you need to leave Biron Monastery via the South exit and head West 
until a path leading up between the mountains appears.  This will lead you 
straight up to the Mist Generator, save your game and go inside.

o------- Item Checklist -------o  Descend the stairs into the large fortress.  
|                              |  Make your way right and then down, your eye 
| Thunder Book I........._____ |  will catch a chest in the upper right 
| Healing Leaf..........._____ |  corner, it contains the 'Thunder Book I.'  
| Healing Flower........._____ |  Go right across the bridge then check both 
| Fury Boost............._____ |  up and down for a 'Healing Leaf' and a 
| Healing Bloom.........._____ |  'Healing Flower.'  Make your way back over 
| Short Sword............_____ |  to the left, stay below the ramp and open 
| Shield Elixir.........._____ |  the chest to get a 'Fury Boost.'  Continue 
| Phoenix................_____ |  down and make a left at the fork, you'll 
| Medicine..............._____ |  find a 'Healing Bloom' here.  Finally take 
| Magic Leaf............._____ |  the right path which will lead you to an 
| Healing Bloom.........._____ |  elevator going down, and a save point.  To 
| Burning Jewel.........._____ |  the right of the save point hidden behind an 
| Tempest Jewel.........._____ |  elevator is a chest containing 'Short 
| Door of Light.........._____ |  Sword.'  Leave the room and head down.  When 
|                              |  the path forks make a right and go through 
o------------------------------o  the door to find a chest with 'Shield 
                                  Elixir' inside.  Continue down the path and 
go up at the next fork to find a chest containing 'Phoenix.'  At the next fork 
take the left branch to get a 'Medicine' from the chest.  Head back and go 
down to find yet another fork, hopefully you aren't lost yet.  At this fork 
don't change directions, simply keep going down and get the 'Magic Leaf.'  Now 
follow the right branch around to the bottom where you'll pass two rooms.  In 
the upper room there's a 'Healing Bloom' and in the lower room there's a 
'Burning Jewel.'  Further left are two more rooms, get the 'Tempest Jewel' and 
'Door of Light.'  Save your game and heal your party fully then head left.

o-- BOSS "Songi" ------------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| Before you attempt this battle you should make sure that Gala has acquired |
| the Vera Seru.  Since he will be the only one fighting, being able to heal |
| himself without using any items will come in quite handy.  Songi is a      |
| powerful foe and he proves this with his physical attacks dealing up to    |
| 200 damage with each combo depending on Gala's armour.  This will hurt     |
| quite a bit given you only have one party member fighting in the battle so |
| you may find that you have to heal every other turn or every three turns   |
| perhaps.  Songi also has one more powerful attack, his Hyper Wave will     |
| send a blast of energy toward Gala for more than 250 damage.  It's pretty  |
| hard to predict when he will use it since it's fairly random but if you're |
| spiriting every third turn there's a good chance you'll end up really      |
| cutting down the damage on that one.  Use Gala's Thunder Punch for a good  |
| source of damage that doesn't use up his MP since you'll likely need that  |
| for healing.  If not then summoning whatever the strongest Seru magic      |
| spell you have at this point may be a good idea.  Theeder is always a      |
| good choice in situations like these.  If you just can't seem to beat      |
| Songi there are other options.  First of all looking at your item stock    |
| you have Healing Flowers which are better than Vera magic.  You probably   |
| still have that Shield Elixir you picked up recently and it should         |
| seriously reduce the damage from his physical attack.  There's always      |
| the Point Card of course, but I wouldn't use it here unless you really     |
| have to.  Lastly as the final resort, remember you just got a Door of      |
| Light out of the chest beside the save point, use it and go level up.      |
|                                                                            |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

Return to the save point and save your game once again.  Make your way left 
and ride the elevator down to the next floor, another save point is here.  
Leave the room and follow the path up to the Mist Generator room.

o-- BOSS "Zeto" -------------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| Be sure you have all those Deep Sea Jewels equipped that I told you to     |
| purchase back in Biron Monastery, you'll be glad you did.  Begin the       |
| battle by having everyone use Spirit.  Now on the next turn here's what    |
| is (in my opinion) the best combos you can use at this point.  I haven't   |
| spent anytime leveling up apart from not running away from battles, and    |
| Vahn has six slots after Spirit, Noa has seven slots after spirit and      |
| Gala has five slots after Spirit.  If you don't have this you must have    |
| run from most of the battle thus far.  Anyway assuming they have that      |
| much each, use the follows combos for massive damage after Spirit:  Vahn   |
| should simply do: right, right, left, right, right left.  Noa has an       |
| awesome seven slot combo: down, up, up, up, left, down, right.  Gala       |
| should just use the Neo Rising move: left, left, right, up left.  As for   |
| Zeto he has three attacks.  A normal physical attack with the claw that    |
| shouldn't be too much to worry about, an attack called Poison Bubbles that |
| does moderate damage to one character and inflicts the poison status.  The |
| final and ultimate attack is the reason you're wearing those Deep Sea      |
| Jewels.  Zeto will use one turn to "Call Wave" which means the Big         |
| Wave is coming on the next turn, this gives you a huge advantage in that   |
| you can use Spirit with everyone and really reduce the damage you take     |
| from the wave not including the damage reduction from the jewel.  After    |
| Spiriting with everyone and being hit my the wave you'll take about        |
| 100 damage each which is a drastic reduction from the damage you would     |
| normally take.  Simply have one character use a Healing Bloom next turn    |
| and you're once again ready for action.  With this setup it should not     |
| be too difficult at all to defeat Zeto, just stay on the defensive.        |
|                                                                            |

When everything is finished and all the scenes have ended, leave Biron 
Monastery through the upper left exit that leads to West Voz Forest.  If you 
stay close to the river and go up you will eventually reach a cave.

'Wisdom Water.'  Also examine the barrels at the upper right corner beside the 
beds to get a 'Silver Compass.'  Pull the lever on the upper left side and 
leave this place.  Take the right branch at the fork and proceed through the 
door.  Follow the path until you reach a fork then make a right and get the 
'Door of Light' from the chest.  Keep going until you reach another fork, at 
that one take the upper left path and get the 'Healing Bloom.'  At the end of 
the path is another area where you are kind of forced to spend the night, 
although it is free.  When you wake up check out the item shop and examine the 
three barrels on the left side to get 'Magic Water.'  Before you leave the old 
lady gives you two 'Door of Wind' items.  Using these you can teleport to any 
town you've visited before.  Exit the cave and begin making your way West 
until you reach a large tower.  You might want to pass by this for now, while 
it is in fact your next destination there is a brand new town just North of 
here with all sorts of great shops to check out.  Head North until you reach 
the town surrounded by all the windmills which serve to keep out the Mist.

o------- Item Checklist -------o  Start by taking the right path into the 
|                              |  weapons and item shop.  There's a chest here 
| Phoenix................_____ |  containing 'Phoenix.'  Descend the stairs 
| Target Chain..........._____ |  and examine the cupboard at the upper right 
| Healing Flower........._____ |  corner for a 'Target Chain.'  Leave the arms 
| Power Water............_____ |  shop and go up from the entrance.  Make a 
| Speed Ring............._____ |  right before the tower and check this house 
| Healing Bloom.........._____ |  for a 'Healing Flower.'  Lastly, head for 
| Speed Elixir..........._____ |  the inn on the upper left side, check the 
| Forest Amulet.........._____ |  basement and open the chest containing 
|                              |  'Power Water.'  Now it's time to head into 
o------------------------------o  the main tower and go up past the lobby to 
                                  reach the elevator room.  Here you will find 
a chest in the upper right corner containing something, I don't remember since 
the phone rang right after I opened it and I forgot what was inside.  Take the 
upper left elevator to the second floor then the one below that.  After this 
go to the upper right elevator and ride it down, you'll find a 'Speed Ring' in 
the chest here.  Ride back up and take the lower right elevator this time.  On 
the next floor ride the upper right elevator down and open the chest to get 
'Healing Bloom.'  Back on the previous floor take the upper left elevator and 
press the switch to turn the rapid elevator on.  Finally ride the lower left 
elevator on the previous floor up.  Just so you know the elevator in the 
middle will take you down to the bottom floor, you can easily ride it back up 
again after if you want.  Head down through the exit door and use the save 
point out here in the garden.  Check the upper left and right hand corners of 
this area to find 'Speed Elixir' and 'Forest Amulet.'  Equip that Forest 
Amulet and another other Forest Amulets you bought in Vidna on as many of your 
characters as you can, save your game again then approach the enemy.

o-- BOSS "Berserker" --------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| You're about to face the hardest boss in the game so far, and one that     |
| many many people have a lot of problems with so we'll be as thorough as    |
| possible.  First of all let's look at the boss' various attacks from the   |
| weakest to the strongest.  The weakest attack the boss has and the one     |
| you'll be jumping for joy when he uses is the Poison Gas which does about  |
| 200 damage to a single character and inflicts the Venom status.  Every     |
| other attack is brutal.  Next in line there's the physical attack that     |
| usually deals about 150, 150, 200 in a three hit combo for around 500      |
| damage total.  if you block any of the hits that's where you should        |
| consider yourself lucky.  Following this we have the Spore Gas which hits  |
| a single character for approximately 550 damage and inflicts the Rot       |
| status.  The boss will alternate between these three attacks through most  |
| of the battle.  When its HP starts to get less than about one third, a     |
| new attack appears.  The Stone Circle is toally unpredictable and hits     |
| your entire party for 550 damage each.  The only possible way to predict   |
| this attack is by kind of guessing that after he's been hurt a bit and you |
| let off a powerful attack, he'll likely use it on the next turn.           |
| Following this the Berserker will use Stone Circle every second turn, this |
| means that you have to use Spirit with everyone in your party every other  |
| turn on the same turn that the Stone Circle occurs.  Spirit will reduce    |
| the damage you take to between 150 and 200.  As for damaging the boss      |
| the primary source of damage will be Noa's combo I described in the        |
| strategy for Zeto, have her Spirit and then input down, up, up, up, left,  |
| down, right.  This will deal about 650 damage each time you successfully   |
| execute it, having a Target Chain on her helps out quite a bit.  Vahn and  |
| Gala should focus on healing and using their best combos or magic when     |
| healing is not necessary.  The boss inflicts two types of status effects,  |
| Venom and Rot.  Venom of course just deals damage every turn like any      |
| other poison.  You can tell is a character si affected by the Rot status,  |
| when you go to the command input some of the commands like arms, high,     |
| low etc will be blocked off by Rot usually keeping you from using your     |
| best special attacks.  That's why having those Forest Amulets equipped     |
| is so important, they prevent the Rot status.  Also, everyone's Vera       |
| spell should be at level five.  At level five Vera cures both Venom and    |
| Rot which will really help out for those character who are not protected   |
| against it.  Keep these things in mind when fighting the Berserker, and    |
| remember no matter what you do, tyou have to keep attacking!               |
|                                                                            |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

Use the save point down at the bottom of the garden again once the boss is 
defeated.  Ride the rapid elevator down and watch the scene.  When you wake up 
you can explore the town fully now that the Mist is gone.  Check out the shops 
but remember, the shops in Vidna are still superior so don't waste all your 
money on inferior equipment.  Make your way to the lower left house and speak 
with the man inside named Zalan.  He'll give you 'Zalan's Letter.'  Now it's 
time to leave Jeremi and use a Door of Wind to get back to Vidna again.

o------- Item Checklist -------o  There's really not a lot to do in Vidna 
|                              |  assuming you visited first before going to 
| Yuma's Ring............_____ |  Jeremi.  You can upgrade your equipment with 
| Zalan's Crown.........._____ |  anything you couldn't afford before.  The 
|                              |  main thing to do is head to the far upper 
o------------------------------o  left house and give Zalan's Letter to his 
                                  son Pepe.  After speaking to Pepe you'll get 
'Yuma's Ring,' use a Door of Wind to return to Jeremi.  Speak to Zalan and 
he'll give you 'Zalan's Crown' in exchange for the ring.  Return once again to 
Vidna and get ready to finally head for Octam.  Follow the path North, then it 
curves East.  When it does it will lead you to a fork in the path where 
there's a bridge going up to the North.  Ignore this bridge and stick to the 
path South, it takes you around where you'll find the ancient city Octam.

o------- Item Checklist -------o  Well before you do anything you're going to 
|                              |  want to just run around Octam getting into 
| Speed Elixir..........._____ |  battles.  There is a holy element Seru 
| Swift Water............_____ |  monster that appears in this area called 
| Star Pearl............._____ |  Orb.  Orb is your very first healing spell 
|                              |  that heals all three members of your party, 
o------------------------------o  it becomes quite possibly the overall most 
                                  usefull spell in the game on average.  Make 
sure you get it, for everyone!  On the ground level go over to the far right 
side and enter the house.  Open the cabinet to get a 'Speed Elixir.'  Proceed 
into the house on the far left side of town next, at the upper right corner 
there's a treasure chest hidden from view behind the wall containing 'Swift 
Water.'  Take the door in the centre of town on ground level and descend the 
stairs.  There are four books in this room, read the upper left one, the lower 
left one, the upper right one then the lower right one and a secret path will 
be revealed.  Head downstairs and watch the scene at the bottom when you try 
to go into the elevator.  After this it's time to head back to Jeremi, speak 
to Zalan and he'll give you the 'Star Pearl.'  With that in hand return to 
Octam and go North.  Cross the bridge and make a right at the fork.  Follow 
this path all the way around until you reach the Shadow Gate.

o------- Item Checklist -------o  After the scene at the entrance of the gate 
|                              |  you need to activate the four panels.  
| Healing Flower........._____ |  Examine the one on the lower right, the 
| Healing Flower........._____ |  South key and choose Water.  Next check out 
| Life Ring.............._____ |  the lower left statue and select Fire.  
| Wonder Elixir.........._____ |  Examine the upper left statue and choose 
| Healing Flower........._____ |  Earth, the the upper right and choose Wind.  
| Fury Boost............._____ |  After it opens up examine the water in the 
| Shield Elixir.........._____ |  middle of the stone flower and throw the 
|                              |  Star Pearl in.  Make your way down the path 
o------------------------------o  until you reach a fork then go left and 
                                  follow that path until you reach a chest 
containing 'Healing Flower.'  Return to the fork and go right this time, 
grabbing the other 'Healing Flower' from the chest as you go.  When you reach 
a fork take the right branch and ascend the stairs to find a 'Life Ring.'  
Follow the other path to yet another fork, go right here as well and it will 
lead you to a chest with 'Wonder Elixir' inside.  Keep going left until you 
reach another type of path, at that point go up through the opening where 
you'll find yet another 'Healing Flower.'  Continue left to the moving path, 
after the third section you'll find a chest on the left containing 'Fury 
Boost.'  After the fifth section you've got a choice of two, take the upper 
right path and you'll find a 'Shield Elixir' in the treasure box.  From here 
it's a linear path to the underground city hidden beneath Octam.

floor, speak to the mayor then examine the barrels for a 'Magic Water' and 
open the chest to get 'Medicine.'  When you try to go back downstairs a scene 
occurs.  Go back down and find the inn, check the house above the inn for a 
chest containing 'Healing Flower.'  Inside the inn you'll find the usual items 
and arms shops.  Examine the cabinet downstairs to get a 'Door of Wind.'  Make 
your way to the home of Hari and examine the cabinet to get the 'Life Water.'  
Now head downstairs and speak to the three Haris.  After that leave the house 
and watch the scene here, the guard that runs out of the house and practically 
jams his spear through that lady's face is quite possibly the funniest thing 
in any video game ever.  Regardless, it's time to head for the Fire Path.  
Like the mayor said you'll find the entrance at the Northwest corner.

o------- Item Checklist -------o  Follow the path around until you reach a 
|                              |  fork where you can see a chest on the right 
| Wisdom Water..........._____ |  side, inside this chest you'll find a 
| Healing Bloom.........._____ |  'Wisdom Water.'  Go down the left side and 
| Magic Leaf............._____ |  make your way to the right.  Open the chest 
| Healing Bloom.........._____ |  to get a 'Healing Bloom' and then head 
| Gala Mace.............._____ |  through the door.  When you come out the 
| Healing Flower........._____ |  next door go left.  On the lower side of 
| Phoenix................_____ |  this pillar is a somewhat hard-to-see 
| Guardian Chain........._____ |  opening leading inside where you'll find a 
| Incense................_____ |  chest containing 'Magic Leaf.'  The pillar 
| Healing Bloom.........._____ |  left of this one has an entrance on the 
| Power Water............_____ |  lower side, but you access to the chest is 
|                              |  blocked.  Instead take the other entrance on 
o------------------------------o  the left side to reach the chest containing 
                                  'Healing Bloom.'  Cross the bridge going 
down and take the entrance on the right side to find a chest with 'Gala Mace' 
inside.  Back up and to the left the entrance in this pillar is on the right 
side and contains a 'Healing Flower.'  Go up, save your game and head to the 
lava area.  Ride the platform across and get the 'Phoenix' then jump back on 
the platform.  When you see the boss don't go down toward it but rather head 
up and over to the right.  You'll find a 'Door of Light' in the chest.  This 
item is a clue, a clue that the boss is really friggin hard and that you might 
just want to use this item to go back and buy all the best equipment.  It's up 
to you of course, when you're ready to fight approach the boss to fight.

o-- BOSS "Xain" -------------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| Xain is just brutal and has been known in the past to literally force      |
| people to just give up on this game.  On the other end of the spectrum     |
| however, kajillions of people have defeated him as well, and you can too   |
| with the right preparation.  First of all there's no substitute for having |
| the best equipment you can buy back in Octam.  Second of all your party    |
| should each be at least level fifteen for this fight, it shouldn't really  |
| require much extra leveling.  Fifteen is the minimum, sixteen is strongly  |
| recommended... my party is level fourteen so we'll see how this goes, I'm  |
| sure that will suffice as well.  As for the boss, he is just brimming with |
| powerful attacks.  Bloody Horns will deal more than 600 damage to a single |
| character, but the damage will be halved if you use Spirit.  When not      |
| using Bloody Horns then Xain is probably using the Bull Charge.  Similar   |
| to Zeto's charge, this is an immediate indicator that you had sure as hell |
| better have everyone in your party use Spirit next turn.  Bull Charge is   |
| always followed by the Terio Punch.  To be honest I don't even know how    |
| much this deals at full capacity since I wasn't crazy enough NOT to use    |
| Spirit, but considering it does at least 400 damage to everyone in your    |
| party when you DO use Spirit, it'll pretty much wipe you out totally       |
| if you don't.  For dealing damage Noa will still be the star of the show   |
| here, she should still be using that combo I said to use for the Zeto and  |
| Berserker battles, by now it should be doing almost 1000 damage each use.  |
| (The combo is a Swan Driver followed by a Rushing Gale.)  For Vahn he      |
| should now be using the Fire Blow Hyper Art which really doesn't have      |
| anything to combo with, same with Gala, he should stick with the Neo       |
| Rising.  Now here's the idea, at least this is the way I like to play      |
| this battle.  Keep in mind if you use Spirit with all your characters      |
| and THEN Xain uses the Bull Charge that turn, you're just going to have to |
| use Spirit again on the next turn and that whole thing would be a waste.   |
| For that reason I find the following strategy works quite well.  Vahn      |
| should attack each turn with a Fire Blow, forget Spirit and stuff like     |
| that and don't worry too much about AP.  Noa should use the Rushing Gale   |
| each turn without Spirit, which should still deal more than 600 damage.    |
| Gala should be on healing duty using Vera and Orb as necessary.  Once      |
| Xain uses the Bull Charge everyone will need to Spirit on the next turn.   |
| After the Terio Punch occurs Noa should use the Swan Driver and Rushing    |
| Gale combo, Gala should use the Neo Rising and Vahn should cast Orb since  |
| he's faster tha Gala and his Spirit attack is just the same as his normal  |
| one anyway with just a couple extra commands on the front, but like I said |
| you can't combo the Fire Blow.  Take this idea and repeat it over and      |
| over, you'll likely find it's a good offensive tactic that really works.   |
|                                                                            |

Directly right of where you start out in this area is a chest containing 
'Guardian Chain.'  Go left and down the ramp, from there straight down and all 
the way to the right where you'll find 'Incense' inside the chest.  Head left 
and up to finda  'Healing Bloom' then keep going up until you see the door, 
but don't go thorugh.  Instead, head right and climb the stairs, then go 
straight up until your path is blocked.  Press X to knock the ice block out of 
your way and continue until you reach a 'Power Water.'  At this point you may 
as well use a Door of Light to get back to Octam once again.  Head for the 
large house with the mayor on the third floor and speak to him, he'll request 
some Spring Salts from Vidna, so use the elevator and get back there now.

o------------------------------o  the basement.  Cross the walkway to the left 
                                  and go down the stairs.  At the bottom go 
right and up to find a chest with a 'Healing Flower.'  From there go down, 
left and down where you'll find a 'Shield Elixir.'  Now head all the way left 
to get the 'Spring Salts' you've been looking for.  Bring them back to Octam 
and give them to the mayor in exchange for the 'Slowness Chain.'  He also 
tells you of your next destination.  Before leaving make sure to upgrade all 
your equipment to the max and stay at the inn, there's another scene with Noa 
during the night.  What you need to do now is leave Octam and head North 
across the bridge, when you reach the fork this time head West to Ratayu.

| Magic Leaf............._____ |  course but there are still a couple of 
| Ivory Book............._____ |  things you can do.  Star by going left and 
| Door of Wind..........._____ |  into the arms shop, you'll find a chest 
| Healing Bloom.........._____ |  containing 'Magic Leaf.'  Next head right 
| Healing Flower........._____ |  and enter the inn, read the letter on the 
| Swift Water............_____ |  table.  Check the three houses in the middle 
| Speed Elxiir..........._____ |  row of town to find chests containing 'Ivory 
| Fury Boost............._____ |  Book,' 'Door of Wind' and 'Healing Bloom.'  
| Healing Berry.........._____ |  After that head to the top centre of town 
| Letona Key............._____ |  and go up into the castle.  Inside the 
|                              |  castle climb the stairs on the left to the 
o------------------------------o  upperfloor.  Ignore the first door on the 
                                  left you pass but take the second one to 
find a chest containing 'Healing Flower.'  On the opposite side through the 
lowest right hand door is a 'Swift Water.'  Head straight up still on the 
second floor and go through the door at the top.  There are three chests in 
this room containing 'Speed Elixir,' 'Fury Boost,' and 'Healing Berry.'  Speak 
to Saryu to get the 'Letona Key' then return all the way back to the bottom of 
the town.  Head to the lower right and use the key to reach Mt. Letona.

| Wisdom Ring............_____ |  and get the 'Magic Leaf' and 'Wisdom Ring.'  
| Guardian Water........._____ |  Head up from here, straight up even when the

|                              |  the next fork.  Open the two chests outside 
o------------------------------o  to get 'Incense' and 'Healing Bloom.'  
                                  Return to the cave and take the upper right 
path which leads you outside and to a chest containing 'Wisdom Water.'  Enter 
the next cave, go right at the fork and open the chest for a 'Healing Fruit.'  
Around the corner is a save point you should definitely use before going any 
further.  Approach the tree then try to leave to continue the scene.  

o-- BOSS "Songi" ------------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| Songi has a number of extremely dangerous attacks.  It starts with the     |
| Hyper Attack which is just a series of powerful physical but blockable     |
| hits.  Beyond this he also has a large beam attack called Hyper Lightning  |
| which blasts a huge beam of energy at a single party member dealing over   |
| 800 damage if they haven't used Spirit that turn.  Beyond that is the      |
| Hyper Crush attack, this one hits every member of your party and is        |
| Songi's one big powerful attack.  It deals around 700 damage to everyone   |
| in your party at full potential.  The worst part about this attack is      |
| that it isn't always easy to predict.  There's almost no way to tell       |
| when Songi will use this attack so basically in order to stay alive you    |
| should have at least one person using Spirit every turn so that no matter  |
| what it will never wipe you out.  Obviously if given a choice, the person  |
| with less than 700 HP should be the one using Spirit.  Really the only     |
| good thning about the Hyper Crush is that while unpredictable, it is       |
| far more rare than attacks like the Stone Circle or Terio Punch which      |
| happened practically every other turn.  When it comes to attacking Songi,  |
| it's little surprise that Noa should still be using the same combo she     |
| has been using since Zeto.  Vahn needs to take advantage of the power of   |
| his Fire Blow, if your level is high enough you should be able to do a     |
| Tornado Flame followed by a Fire Blow after Spirit, it takes a lot of      |
| AP but it's worth it.  Gala really doesn't need any attacks, he should     |
| pretty much be on healing duty for the entire battle.  Since virtually     |
| all of Songi's attacks need to be healed immediately, using Orb will       |
| drain his MP far too quickly, a high level Vera can be just as effective   |
| as Orb in those single attack cases.  Also as one final note I would like  |
| to point out that Songi in fact has a hell of a lot of HP.  So much so     |
| that at times it seems like he's just never going to go down, but he will. |
| Lastly, the Hyper Crush is so rare that he only used it ONCE in the entire |
| battle for me, on the third turn, you make sure to Spirit up before the    |
| third turn and after that, perhaps you really don't have to worry much.    |
|                                                                            |

Before awakening the Genesis Tree check the lower left corner to find a chest 
with a 'Magic Fruit' inside.  Now examine the tree and use your powers to 
bring it back to life.  Once that is taken care of use a Door of Light to 
return back to the outside of Ratayu.  Save your game and then go back in.

|                              |  Ratayu is once again alive with activity and

dressed all in purple.  Speak with her to trigger a scene.  When you find 
yourself in the castle as Noa, try to run away to run into Saryu, then the 
scene changes over to Vahn and Gala.  Head straight up through the castle 
until you encounter a couple of elemental enemies.  Now there's one thing you 
should really note.  Kemaro is one of the absolute best magic spells in the 
game, the difference between having Kemaro and not having Kemaro for the next 
few dungeons is quite pronounced.  If neither of your characters learn it from 
either of these enemies, I'd go so far as to recommend maybe resetting and 
trying again, it's that good.  Just keep following the path and sue enough, 
before long you'll encounter the evil leader fo Ratayu, Van Saryu.

| I would recommend starting this battle having two of your characters       |
| use Spirit and the third cast your new Kemaro spell, if you didn't learn   |
| it then that's too bad, if you did then that's 1800 damage right off the   |
| bat.  Gala and Vahn will probably have enough MP to cast it twice, Noa     |
| can't have learned it anyway since she wasn't in your party so be sure     |
| to cast it twice here and hey, if you have MP restoring items maybe        |
| you'll want to cast it even more.  Van Saryu usually uses his first turn   |
| to pound the face of one of your party members with his powerful physical  |
| attack.  Heal up if need be on the next turn.  Besides this physical       |
| attack, which while face poundingly brutal, doesn't exactly deal a huge    |
| abmount of damage, maybe 400 at the worst.  The great thing is he uses it  |
| far more than any other attack, although he only has one other attack.     |
| The Earthquake spell deals 7000 damage to all your party members, he uses  |
| it randomly and it's totally unpredictable, that's what's so dangerous     |
| about it.  You have to have people using Spirit each turn and be ready     |
| with Orb at all times.  By this point Vahn should finally be capable of    |
| dealing more damage than Noa with a back to back combo of Tornado Flame    |
| and fire blow.  Noa should be up to eight hits by now, use the exact same  |
| combo I described for previous fights, but add an extra up button attack   |
| to the start, it'll give her an extra arts to use.  After he's taken       |
| enough damage Van Saryu will use the Jugger Power ability which increases  |
| all his stats.  The bad part about this is that his attack goes up         |
| exponentially, the physical hit that dealt 400 damage before will now      |
| deal 800-900 damage to a single character and seriously risk knocking him  |
| out.  The increase in damage from the Earthquake isn't too bad, at least   |
| not when compared to the physical.  The good news is he only uses this     |
| when he has a mere few thousand hit points left so go on the offensive     |
| but always be ready to cast Orb just in cast the Earthquake comes out.     |
|                                                                            |

After the boss has been defeated you get the 'West Ratayu Key.'  Heal up your 
party by staying at the inn, doing so will also trigger another scene with Noa 
in her dreams.  Take the West exit out of Ratayu and head for Dohati's Castle.

| Wonder Elixir.........._____ |  at the end.  Return to the main path and 
| Healing Flower........._____ |  head up, you'll find a 'Healing Flower' in 
| Power Elixir..........._____ |  the room.  Return to the entrance and go 
| Healing Bloom.........._____ |  right this time, enter the first room you 
| Phoenix................_____ |  pass to find a chest containing 'Power

| War Soul..............._____ |  pass a kind of weird design in the floor 
| Fury Boost............._____ |  make a right and go into the room to find a

| Magic Fruit............_____ |  down past the escalator (it just takes you 
| Power Water............_____ |  back to the first floor) and head down at 
| Shield Elixir.........._____ |  the fork.  In this room there is a chest 
|                              |  with a 'Phoenix' in it.  Follow the path 
o------------------------------o  further as it leads outside and across a 
                                  kind of sky bridge.  On the other side go up 
at the first chance you get and open the chest in the room containing 'Healing 
Fruit.'  Ignore the escalators when you come to them, instead head left and 
open the chest there to get 'Life Water.'  Rude the escalator up then go 
right, and down at the fork to find a 'War Soul' which you should definitely 
equip on one of your characters.  Cross the sky bridge on the right then when 
you reach another design thing in the floor head up through the door and get 
the 'Fury Boost' out of the chest there.  Take the upper door at the next fork 
as well where you'll find a 'Healing Berry.'  Follow the path to the escalator 
and head up when you reach the top, there you'll find a chest with a 'Magic 
Fruit' in it.  Across the third bridge there's a save point which you should 
definitely use.  Head up from the save point and make a left at the fork, open 
the chest at the back of this room to get a 'Power Water.'  Check the same 
spot down the right branch as well for a 'Shield Elixir.'

| using Spirit with everyone in your party.  Dohati always begins the battle |
| with his most powerful attack, Chaos Breath.  Chaos breath does about 900  |
| damage to everyone in your party and inflicts the Venom/Toxic status on    |
| them.  Fortunately with Spirit the attack only deals about 300 damage to   |
| everyone at most.  After this has occurred have either Vahn or Noa (Gala   |
| is too slow) cast Orb which should not only heal your party back to full   |
| health again but if it's at least level three it should heal your status   |
| as well.  From here Dohati will actually shrink in size immensely.  There  |
| will be approximately four turns in a row of him just using his normal     |
| physical attack which deals anywhere between 500 and 900 damage without    |
| Spirit to a single member of your party.  The worst thing you can do is    |
| underestimate this attack.  All it takes is a party member slightly        |
| weakened and with some bad luck they'll take the full force of this and    |
| end up being killed.  Not so good.  you need to heal every single turn     |
| even though you're only being hit with a physical attack.  Equipped with   |
| the War Soul Vahn should be Spiriting and using Tornado Flame and Fire     |
| Blow back to back every turn for more than 1000 damage, Noa should be      |
| using the same combo as always and if Gala learned Kemaro then you're      |
| really set for this battle.  Keep track of Dohati's size, along with the   |
| approzxmate four turns in between to predict when he's going to use        |
| the Chaos Breath next and be ready to Spirit with all your characters.     |
|                                                                            |

feeling honest, you can leave 3000G behind as compensation.  The decision is 
made easier by the following, simply examine the tree on the right to find 
'3000G' at the trunk.  Now leave this money behind and come back later in the

| Power Water............_____ |  are pretty pointless right now.  You should 
| Healing Berry.........._____ |  keep heading up until you reach the Bakery, 
| Wisdom Water..........._____ |  Arms Shop and Warehouse.  Good luck trying 
| Swift Water............_____ |  to afford all this stuff.  Tell the kid in 
| Phoenix................_____ |  the warehouse you're not a poor kid and 
| Wonder Elixir.........._____ |  he'll let you go in and buy stuff.  The girl

| Astral Sword..........._____ |  higher, but ask him to lower the price two 
|                              |  times to reach 40,000.  The Life Grail when 
o------------------------------o  equipped, restores 200HP per turn to whoever 
                                  is wearing it, well worth the price.  
Continue to the next floor and enter the community hall to find a chest 
containing 'Healing Fruit.'  Check out Sol Dayschool as well for a 'Magic 
Fruit.'  At the very top of the tower, use the save point and then check the 
very top corner for a chest containing 'Miracle Water.'  You'll find a 'Power 
Elixir' in the chest at the lower left.  Enter the structure at the top and 
speak with Old Deez to get the 'Genesis Seedling.'  When you try to leave you 
may run into a problem.  The old man is there and he's none too happy.

| You might have heard me say this before, but I'll say it again, this is    |
| hardest boss fight you've had to face in the game so far.  Gaza's attacks  |
| are just plain brutal, and that's the thing, he only has two of them.      |
| Now and then he'll hit you with a moderately powerful physical attack but  |
| just about any other time he'll hit you with the Astral Blade which deals  |
| 1200 damage to someone who hasn't used spirit, and 600-700 damage to       |
| someone who has.  Since you can't be using Spirit every single turn don't  |
| even attempt this battle until everyone in your party has a minimum of     |
| 1200 HP.  I defeated him reasonably at level 25 but I'm sure you could     |
| manage at level 23-24 if you were prepared well enough.  The most          |
| important factor in winning this battle is having everyone know the Spoon  |
| Seru magic.  Spoon is the best healing spell in the game, you'll find it's |
| quite common on the lower floors of this tower.  Get it for everyone,      |
| especially Gala.  Here's what I did to defeat the boss.  To do this        |
| effectively you'll probably need at least one MP (good) MP healing item.   |
| On the first turn Spirit with everyone except Gala, have him use Orb.      |
| Gaza will most likely attack either Vahn or Noa, and Orb will heal them.   |
| If he attacks Gala Orb will not fully restore his HP and next turn you'll  |
| need to have either Vahn or Noa use Spoon to make sure he gets back to     |
| full health.  On the next turn have both Vahn and Noa attack with their    |
| msot powerful arts while Gala uses SPOON this time.  Since no one Spirited |
| someone is likely going to be hit for 1200 damage, Spoon will heal that    |
| right up.  Vahn should simply use two Fire Blows in a row while Noa uses   |
| whatever works for you, I like comboing the Rushing Gale myself.  Continue |
| with this pattern all thorugh the battle, compensating in case Gala gets   |
| hit on a turn when everyone else uses Spirit.  His MP will drain fast so   |
| if the boss still isn't dead by the time it runs out, you'll have to give  |
| Vahn or Noa one turn to use a healing item on Gala to restore his MP.      |
|                                                                            |

With this boss taken care of you have a new challenge ahead of you.  To 
accomplish this next part you will need eight Soru Bread items.  You will note 
they are being sold in the bakery for 6000G each which can get very expensive.  
There's a better way to do it.  Now that Gaza is defeated you should be around 
level 24 or 25.  Personally what I would do is go downstairs, sell whatever 
you can and level up in the lower parts until you acquire 50,000G.  It 
shouldn't take more than an hour and it will be well worth it.  You can take 
this money and blow it all on Soru Bread if you want, or you can do it a much 
better way (my way.)  Take 10,000G of that money and spend it on 100 Coins in 
the Muscle Dome.  Now spend the other 40,000G on the awesome Life Grail 
accessory in the warehouse.  Equip the Life Grail, War Soul and maybe a Power 
Ring on Vahn and then spend those 100 Coins in the Muscle Dome to enter the 
tournament.  Choose the beginner match, you only have to win eight rounds, 
everything is easy until the final round which is you against Xain.  With 
those three accessories I defeated Xain fairly easily at level 23 BEFORE 
fighting Gaza, so you should be able to do it at this point no problem.  All 
you have to do is keep in mind that you should Spirit every time after he uses 
Bull Charge, and attack the turn after.  Keep this up and your health should 
balance out, if he uses other attacks too often, simply conter with Spoon and 
you'll be fine.  The reward for winning the beginner tournament is 818 Coins.  
Go to the exchange desk and you'll see Soru Bread exchanges from 100 Coins, 
use your 800 Coins to buy eight Soru Bread.  What's the difference between 
buying them all at once and doing it this way?  You now have the Life Grail, 
one of the best accessories in the game, pretty much for free.

Return to the inn and heal up then start down the stairs.  Go past the 
elevator on the third floor and head through the orange door.  On the right 
side of this room you'll find a chest containing 'Magic Water.'  Examine the 
chest after getting the water and feed is the Soru Bread.  Go down the stairs 
in the house and open the chest at the bottom to get 'Guardian Water.'  Feed 
this chest some Soru Bread as well.  Down the next set of stairs is a chest 
with a 'Life Water,' give the chest some Soru Bread afterward.  Leave this 
place and go right.  Past the main exit and past the elevator, go into the 
door after that.  On the right side of this area is a chest with a 'Power 
Water' inside.  Feed this chest a Soru Bread.  Go downstairs and get the 
'Healing Berry' from the chest, replace it with some Soru Bread.  Up two 
floors behind the counter is another chest that has 'Wisdom Water' in it.  
Feed the Soru Bread to this chest as well.  Leave the room and go left, enter 
the arms shop door beside you.  Open this chest to get 'Swift Water' then put 
the Soru Bread inside.  You'll find the final chest upstairs beside a real 
chest.  The real chest contains 'Phoenix' while the other one has a 'Wonder 
Elixir.'  Feed it the Soru Bread, that's the last of it now.  Leave this 
building and go as far as you can possibly go to the left.  When you find a 
statue blocking your path backtrack one door and god inside the large double 
doors.  Use the controls in this room to move that statue out of the way.  

Leave the room and go left, enter the room at the bottom.  Open the chest 
above you to get 'Speed Elixir' then follow the path down and to the right.  
You'll find a lot of bookshelves here, keep examining the lower right hand 
side of the middle bookshelf until you get 'Mary's Diary.'  Continue left into 
the next room.  Head straight up from here through the door, now in this next 
room with all the boxes there is a hard-to-see chest at the upper left corner, 
inside you will find a 'Wonder Amulet.'  In the next room you'll find a chest 
on your right containing 'Golden Book.'  Head up from here and use the save 
point to save your game.  When you're ready to proceed head down the stairs on 
your right.  Push the lever in front of you when you get down the stairs.  
Head down the path and flip the purple switch to stop the electricity.  Go 
down hte ramp and then up, you'll find a blue switch here.  Flip it and go 
down through the now open gate.  From the large structure in the centre go 
left and up, flip the dark blue switch and then go down to find the yellow and 
red switches.  Flip thenm both and then from the structre in the centre go 
left up both ramps and then up.  Flip the white and red switches then go down 
to find the other large lever that will totally open up the central area.  I 
would recommend at this point you return to the save point just so you don't 
have to do all that crap again if you die at the boss.  The stuff in the 
middle stays down, don't worry.  After saving you game head for the centre.

o-- BOSS "Gaza" -------------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| A second boss fight against Gaza awaits you at the bottom of the Sol       |
| Tower, and he's not going to hold back this time.  He's been fitted with a |
| new suit of armour, and along with it, some new attacks.  One attack he    |
| seems quite fond of using is the Astral wave.  WITHOUT using Spirit it     |
| seems this attack can't really deal more than 800-900 damage, it's weaker  |
| than his Astral Slash was.  Don't try and think "why" just enjoy the fact  |
| that it is.  At least fir the beginning of the battle I would use the same |
| strategy as the one you (should have) used against the first Gaza.  Have   |
| Noa and Vahn alternate between Spirit and combos while Gala alternates     |
| between Orb and Spoon each turn.  If you have the Kemaro spell maybe you   |
| might want to encorporate that in there somewhere.  Unlike the original    |
| Gaza, this one has a group attack that does approximately 1000 damage to   |
| everyone.  There's only one thing to do after something like this, SPOON!  |
| The Tick would be proud.  Cast Spoon to make up for all the damage from    |
| that damn Neo Star Slash, if Gala's using it practically every turn then   |
| you'll most likely recover from it anyway.  Gaza is a difficult enemy but  |
| to be honest, I think he was more difficult before he got that Sim Seru.   |
| As long as you keep your party's HP in the thousands, you'll beat him      |
|                                                                            |

When the old man is defeated, there is a scene and then Vahn receives the 
'Astral Sword.'  The Astral Sword is a super powerful weapon for Vahn however 
the arms commands grows large so in the end, the sword turns out to be not 
particularly useful.  All sorts of new shops are open now so you'll definitely 
want to check them all out.  After that head for the inn just to the right of 
the main entrance.  Speak to the large man in the basement to get the research 
station password.  After this it's finally time to leave the Sol Tower.

o------- Item Checklist -------o  Open the chest in the house to get a 
|                              |  'Healing Berry' then read the book on the 
| Healing Berry.........._____ |  table.  After the scene at Uru Mais go down 
| Fire Droplet..........._____ |  the stairs and to the right, enter the 
| Magic Grail............_____ |  triangular door on the right.  You'll pass 
| Honey.................._____ |  through a long hallway and then it will be 
| TimeSpace Bomb........._____ |  time for Vahn to dream.  During the 
| TimeSpace Bomb........._____ |  flashback speak to everyone in your house 
| TimeSpace Bomb........._____ |  and then go outside.  The rest is just for 
| TimeSpace Bomb........._____ |  you to watch.  After this take the left hall 
| Healing Berry.........._____ |  for Noa's dream and then take the hall at 
| Healing Berry.........._____ |  the very top for Gala's dream.  When all the 
| Healing Berry.........._____ |  dreams are done speak to the Tieg imagine in 
| Healing Berry.........._____ |  the middle to get the 'Fire Droplet.'  After 
| Healing Berry.........._____ |  you get it and watch the scene go around to 
| Healing Fruit.........._____ |  the far right side of the wreckage.  You'll 
| Healing Fruit.........._____ |  find a large crack on the right side that 
| Healing Fruit.........._____ |  extends into the centre of what used to be 
| Healing Fruit.........._____ |  the main platform.  Get as close to the 
| Healing Fruit.........._____ |  middle as you can in this crack and press X 
| Magic Fruit............_____ |  to get the 'Magic Grail.'  Now it's time to 
| Magic Fruit............_____ |  leave Uru Mais.  At this point, since I 
| Magic Fruit............_____ |  haven't mentioned it before now, I might as 
| Magic Fruit............_____ |  well now.  There are two things, first of 
| Magic Fruit............_____ |  all if you're looking for a good time to 
|                              |  level up, now would be a good time.  The 
o------------------------------o  Fire Droplet can be equipped as one of the 
                                  best accessories in the game, your AP can 
never go below 100.  It'll really make battles easier at least for now.  The 
other thing is an optional boss fight, which you could have done before, I 
just forgot to mention it.  At this point it'll be super easy anyway, so no 
matter.  Use a Door fo Wind to return to Rim Elm.  In the lower left corner of 
town, not quite as far as the beach, there is a tree.  Examine the tree to 
trigger the battle.  Three normal bees and a queen bee.  You're fighting queen 
bees on the world map as normal enemeis at this point, so just quickly wipe 
the floor with these enemies.  For defeating them you get the 'Honey' item, it 
works like a Miracle Water, increasing all stats.  Whatever you do, don't 
speak to Nene.  She'll take your Honey for Elm Cake and give you nothing in 
return.  Anyway, now it's really time to return to the Usha Research Center.  
Head up and speak with Dr. Usha, he'll give you the 'TimeSpace Bombs.'  When 
you go back down it's time for another quiz from his obnoxious wife.  The 
answers are Nivora Ravine, Entrance to Nivora Ravine, three seconds, To awaken 
Buma's Genesis Tree.  For getting this right you are rewarded with five 
'Healing Berry,' five 'Healing Fruit,' and five 'Magic Fruit.'  Leave the 
research station and use a Door of Wind to return to Buma.  Directly North of 
Buma, past the frozen fishing pond, is you destination: the Nivora Ravine.

o------- Item Checklist -------o  Head for the entrance and set the TimeSpace 
|                              |  Bomb into place.  Now the entrance is open 
| Warrior Icon..........._____ |  and you can get inside.  Follow along the 
| Mettle Gem............._____ |  path and watch the scene at the end.  Jump 
| Rainbow Jewel.........._____ |  down the steps to the bottom and open the 
| Fury Boost............._____ |  chest to get 'Warrior Icon.'  Keep going 
| Magic Fruit............_____ |  down and use the save point at the bottom.  
| Spirit Jewel..........._____ |  Inside is where you will have to split up 
|                              |  your party, be sure you're prepared for 
o------------------------------o  this.  As Vahn start by going up into the 
                                  room and getting the 'Mettle Gem.'  Descend 
the stairs on your left and follow the path until you reach a dead end.  At 
this point hit square to switch over to Noa.  As Noa, go into the room above 
you and grab the 'Rainbow Jewel.'  Head left and stand on the wierd emblem in 
the ground.  Switch back to Vahn and have him turn the large object.  As Vahn 
still, head up into the room above you.  There's a chest containing 'Fury 
Boost.'  Follow this path until you reach another dead end.  Switch back to 
Noa again.  Proceed left and flip the switch on the wall.  Run all the way 
toward the end as Noa, checking the room you pass along the way for a 'Magic 
Fruit.'  After this Noa will reach the end.  Finally, switch over to Gala.  
Head through the door around the corner and get the 'Spirit Jewel.'  Leave 
this room and continue left.  Knock that giant snowball down to help Vahn and 
from there just run to the end.  Switch over to Vahn and have him run to the 
end as well.  Beofore the boss fight you'll have a chance to access the menu.

o-- BOSS "Che Delilas" ------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| You may have heard this before... yeah... once again you're facing off     |
| against the hardest boss(es) you've faced so far.  Each of your party      |
| members must take on one member of the family at a time.  If you die on    |
| any of them it's game over.  Fortunately Gala's enemy is pretty much       |
| the hardest of the bunch (they're all hard) and he comes first so at least |
| dying will minimize your backtracking in terms of boss fights.  What I     |
| like to do may sound weird, but I like to give Gala kind of a              |
| disadvantage.  What I mean by that, is I like to equip some of the better  |
| accessories like the Life Grail on Noa or Vahn or something, not that you  |
| want Gala to lose, but since he comes first, as long as you can get        |
| through that fight right away, it means you will have it much easier and   |
| a much better chance of getting through all three.  I recommend the        |
| following setup for Gala: you can defeat Che Delilas with Gala at level    |
| 26, the best equipment you can buy at this point (still Sol Tower I        |
| believe) and the following accessories: Magic Grail, Life Ring and         |
| Warrior Icon.  The Magic Grail is needed because Gala needs to heal        |
| himself far more frequently than anyone else, with this you can pretty     |
| much summon Spoon every other turn and never run out of MP.  The Life      |
| Ring is needed because you should have a minimum of 1700 HP coming into    |
| this battle.  If you level up a lot, then substitute it for something      |
| better if you want.  The Warrior Icon is an absolutely amazing accesory    |
| for this fight.  It's random so you can't rely on it, but for the turns    |
| in which you actually do attack, there's a chance you will interrupt the   |
| boss' attack with yours, and you won't get hit at all that turn.  Gala     |
| is definitely who you will want this on.  Now for the battle iself.        |
| Assuming yoursetup is similar to mine, start the battle with the           |
| following: Orb first turn (Che Delilas moves first, you heal all damage    |
| he deals and lose no MP because of Magic Grail.)  Second turn, Orb again   |
| same deal.  Trust me.  Third turn you must use Spirit, every three turns   |
| like clockwork Che Delilas uses his Megaton Press.  You MUST use Spirit    |
| before this to reduce most of the damage.  After this input a combo for    |
| Gala.  With seven slots the best possible combination is as follows:       |
| Lightning Storm comboed with Electro Thrash, seven is enough to do both    |
| of them.  After this cast Spoon on the next turn.  Now if you're healed    |
| to FULL health after Spoon, then use Spirit and repeat the process after   |
| Megaton Hammer.  If you're not, then you'll have to substitue next turn's  |
| attack with Spoon.  This process is VERY slow but it WILL keep you alive,  |
| patience is very important.  There's also an element of luck, he gets      |
| three hits per turn at random.  One of them does about 300 damage, another |
| one does like 90.  If he uses three of the 300 damage ones, it's just      |
| bad luck and you'll have to skip attacking to use Spoon.  Good luck.       |
|                                                                            |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

o-- BOSS "Lu Delilas" -------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| This one shouldn't be as difficult as the fight against Che.  I gave       |
| Noa the Life Grail in this case, along with the Guardian Chain (I think    |
| that's what it's called, the one that makes it so neither you nor your     |
| enemy can block attacks) and I forget what the last thing was.  When       |
| the battle begins, just use Vera or Spirit or something each turn, you     |
| won't be getting into the real sprategy until turn three.  On the third    |
| turn you should have full or almost full HP when you uuse Spirit, just     |
| like Che Delilas, Lu Delilas will use her ultimate attack every three      |
| turns and you have to use Spirit to weaken it.  After this let loose       |
| with your most powerful attack.  If your Noa is anything like mine, she    |
| has the full nine slots when she uses Spirit.  This will allow her to      |
| use Miracle Arts, the ultimate attack.  To use it you need 100 AP and      |
| nine slots.  The combination for Noa is left, up, right, down, up, left,   |
| up, down, right.  This should be about the most powerful attack you        |
| can use.  Repeat this pattern over and over again and eventually you win.  |
|                                                                            |

o-- BOSS "Gi Delilas" -------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| Gi Dililas I personally find to be the easiest of the three, but perhaps   |
| it will depend on what you have equipped on Vahn.  I had absolutely        |
| nothing defensive on him at all and it still wasn't too bad, I think the   |
| most important thing to note for this strategy is that Vahn is ALWAYS      |
| faster than Gi and will always get the first turn.  If you don't this      |
| may not work.  As usual start the battle BS-ing your way through the first |
| could of turns then use Spirit on the third turn to survive his special    |
| attack.  After that use either Orb, Spoon, or a Healing Berry to get       |
| back up to full life.  On the next turn use your most powerful attack,     |
| with eight slots for me it was two back-to-back Fire Blows.  Vahn's        |
| accessories were the Mettle Gem, War Soul and Power Ring so you can        |
| imagine how strong he was, two Fire Blows did nearly 2000 damage.          |
| Defeat Gi Dililas and you'll finally have a chance to save your game!      |
|                                                                            |

Head over to the right side and save your game before jumping down.

o-- BOSS "Koru" -------------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| Technically this boss has "attacks" but they're so weak and crappy         |
| you probably won't have to heal at all.  In fact even if you do need to    |
| heal you probably shouldn't, you're on a time limit!  You have four        |
| turns to defeat Koru before it explodes and kills you, on the fourth       |
| turn it will explode and kill you, but anyone in your party who moves      |
| faster than Koru will still be able to attack during that turn.  It        |
| shows Koru's HP as 100 in the battle screen, it will go down by 10 points  |
| for every 2000 damage you deal or so, meaning in total Koru has about      |
| 20,000 hit points.  To be honest your success in this battle will depend   |
| greatly on who has the Kemaro spell.  You don't have time to be using      |
| Spirit over and over so you need to be able to deal massive damage every   |
| single turn.  I only had one person with Kemaro (Vahn) so what I did       |
| was equip him with the Magic Grail, Spirit Gem (25% less MP cost) and      |
| Wisdom Ring.  With that he can pretty much cast it every turn.  For        |
| Gala I equipped the Mettle Gem, War Soul and Power Ring.  Without using    |
| Spirit he would just use his new Hyper Art Explosive Fist you learn from   |
| the Thunder Book III you just got from the previous boss battle.  Noa      |
| didn't have much, I had her use Spirit on the first turn then a Miracle    |
| Arts attack, after that she can do whatever.  If she has Kemaro as well,   |
| then all the better.  If you just can't do it... there's always the Point  |
| Card.  Note however if you use the Point Card here... it's a big waste.    |
|                                                                            |

                                  up to the Jazz Club and go inside, speak to 
the man at the piano and have him play Cara's music score.  After a scene 
return to Buma and head to Cara's house.  Another scene occurs here and you 
get the 'Soren Flute' and 'Light Egg.'  Bring the Light Egg to Jeremi and talk 
to Zalan, he's perfectly happy to turn the Light Egg into the Light Talisman.  
When equipped, the light Talisman allows you to summon a special Seru.  Once 
everythign is out of the way your next destination is Mt. Dhini.  To get there 
leave Buma, take a few steps West and head as far North as you can.  From the 
top, go West until you come across a mountain cave, this is Mt. Dhini.

|                                                                            |
| Zora is a pretty reasonable boss fight, it shouldn't be as difficult       |
| as the battle against the Delilas family if you're properly prepared.  On  |
| the first turn have everyone attack normally or use magic or something     |
| like that.  Zora will probably use a normal physical attack.  On the       |
| second turn she almost always uses her special attack, Darkness Typhoon.   |
| This is an attack that hits your entire party for abou 1200 damage, and    |
| can be reduced to about 400 if you use Spirit.  I would highly recommend   |
| making Noa the healer for this battle, as opposed to Gala, solely because  |
| you want a healer who can definietely move before Zora.  Equip Noa with    |
| the Wisdom Ring, Magic Grail, and something else.  Vahn and Gala should    |
| be equipped with accessories to increase their physical power.  There's a  |
| good chance Vahn will have nine slots at this point, if he does then you   |
| can use his Miracle Arts.  Vahn's Miracle Art is right, down, left, up,    |
| left, up, right, down, left.  For Gala with eight slots I recommend the    |
| following, Explosive Fist comboed with the Neo Rising, it worls with       |
| eight slots.  Soon enough Zora will reveal her one other special attack,   |
| it's called Glare and it automatically turns a single character to         |
| Stone with about 100% accuracy.  For this reason your party MUST be        |
| equipped with Wonder Amulets.  If you've followed the guide you will have  |
| two at this point.  If the character not wearing a Wonder Amulet gets      |
| turned to Stone, simply use Medicine to heal them.  Before too long        |
| with enough power behind your attacks, Zora will eventually fall.          |
|                                                                            |

After the battle get ready to run!  The castle is collapsing and you have six 
minutes to get out of there before it drops.  When you get back to the Soren 
Camp head to the upper right and speak to the Soren there, he'll read from the 
Soren Secrets and teach you some arts.  When you're ready to proceed speak 
with Luctes and have him fly you to the enormous city of Conkram.

Noa's mother.  Speak to the guards at the upper left and you'll be allowed to 
use the stairs.  Head down the stairs and speak to the king at the bottom, 
he'll give you the 'Seru Flame.'  Bring the falme up to the room, on the right 
side of the queen and go back in time to Conkram past!  When you arrive head 
down, and go down the stairs.  Enter the room on the upper left to find a 
'Power Water.'  Leave the castle and go left, then down, but not down the 
stairs.  You'll find a chest containing 'Guardian Water.'  At the bottom of 
the stairs you'll find a 'Magic Fruit' on the right side.  Enter the upper 
right house of town and get the 'Swift Water' from the chest.  There's an arms 
shop you might want to check out, after that head for the house above the item 
shop, there you'll find a chest with 'Wisdom Water.'  When you're ready to 
proceed then just sleep at the inn.  After the scene in the morning your 
destination is the caslte basement, the same place you found the king in the

o------- Item Checklist -------o  The only thing you need to keep in mind 
|                              |  primarily is that you should wait until the 
| Magic Armband.........._____ |  dungeon isn't going all crazy to step on the 
| Phoenix................_____ |  warp pads.  Step on the first warp pad above 
| Guardian Chain........._____ |  you and then the next one (the only option 
| Fury Boost............._____ |  you have.)  Leave this little room and step 
| Nemesis Gem............_____ |  on the other warp pad.  You'll have your 
| Minea's Ring..........._____ |  choice of two warp pads here, take the one 
|                              |  on the left and open the chest to get 'Magic 
o------------------------------o  Armband.'  Go back and take the warp pad on 
                                  the right.  Now use the only other one 
available.  There's two in this next area, take the warp pad at the upper 
left.  Here you'll find a chest containing 'Phoenix.'  Go back and take the 
warp pad at the lower left.  You'll find a large warp pad here, step on it.  
There are two warp pads above you, take the upper one of the two.  Next take 
the lower left warp pad and the one in the small room on the upper left after 
that.  Take the only one you can here and then for the next one, there is a 
warp pad in the room below you.  Use it and get the 'Guardian Chain' from the 
chest.  Head back to the previous area and take the lower right warp pad.  
There's a chest here containing 'Fury Boost.'  Return to the previous room and 
take the upper right pad.  This will lead you to a boss.  The Berserker Lv2 
souldn't be too difficult, if you want some massive damage let loose Vahn's 
Miracle Arts.  After the boss is defeated step on the warp pad above you to 
get back to the start and then step on the upper of the two warp pads (the one 
you just came from).  Use the upper right warp pad here then take the one on 
the left after this, another boss is here, the Caruban Lv2.  This thing is 
absolutely pathetic.  Use the warp pad to get back to the beginning then step 
on the one below you and then the large one to reach the third floor.

You will see two fountains on the left and right, both will fully restore your 
HP & MP.  Step on the warp pad above you and then onto the one on the right.  
There are two choices here, choose the one on the right.  This leads you to a 
boss, the Berserker Lv3, pretty much the same as Lv2.  Return to the previous 
area and take the upper elft teleport where you have the choice.  From here 
and the next couple of rooms take the only warp pad you can until you have a 
choice of more than one, at the point take the one in the upper left room and 
prepare for a boss.  Despite being upgraded from the previous one, this boss 
is still extremely easy.  Go back to the previous room and take the upper 
right warp pad.  Save your game and step on the large teleporter thing.

o-- BOSS "Rogue" ------------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| This boss is extremely easy, at least as far as I can tell.  I wans't      |
| at any kind of special level or anything.  Here's the way it works.        |
| The boss alternates between two attacks, and one isn't even an attack.     |
| Rogue will waste one turn using Element Change which changes its attack    |
| element then on the next turn it will let loose a powerful elemental       |
| attack.  All you have to do is attack with all your characters on the      |
| first turn of battle, then Spirit with everyone next turn to weather       |
| the hit.  It deals nearly 900 damage to everyone WITH Spirit so don't get  |
| caught not using it... ever.  For accessories I had Noa equipped with the  |
| Rainbow Jewel since it reduces elemental damage and Noa has the least      |
| amount of HP.  What I did was equip Vahn with the Mettle Gem so he could   |
| used his Miracle Arts and Gala had a very powerful Kemaro spell.  Noa was  |
| the healer so it went one turn of Spirit which the boss attacked, then     |
| one turn of Vahn's Craze, Spoon and Kemaro.  Repeat until dead.            |
|                                                                            |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

When the battle is over you'll get the 'Nemesis Gem'  Enter the room on the 
left and climb the stairs.  Speak to the queen to get 'Minea's Ring.'  After 
doing this return to the room on the right of the throne.  Use the mirror to 
get back to the present once again.  After arriving in Conkram and speaking 
with noa's mother your destination is the Absolute Fortress.  Return to the 
world map and head North, it's the only thing you can possibly find.

o------- Item Checklist -------o  Upon entering the fortress stick to the 
|                              |  right side, soon enough you'll come upon a 
| Life Armband..........._____ |  path leeading up to the right.  Open the 
| Rainbow Jewel.........._____ |  chest to get the 'Life Armband' then head 
| Golden Claw............_____ |  back down.  On the left side, just up a 
| Unholy Icon............_____ |  little bit is a save point with a fountain 
| Wonder Amulet.........._____ |  beside it.  Drink the water from this 
| Wonder Elixir.........._____ |  fountain and your HP & MP will be fully 
| Warrior Icon..........._____ |  restored.  Keep going up until your reach a 
| Lost Grail............._____ |  scene at the Mist pool, at that point head 
| Mettle Gem............._____ |  right and open the chest containing 'Rainbow 
|                              |  Jewel.'  Follow the path left to the second 
o------------------------------o  level and watch the scene,  From here it 
                                  leads you thorugh a tunnel, past a door to a 
room with a 'Golden Claw' inside.  The path curves and leads straight up, 
ignore all branches and just keep going up and up until you find yourself at a 
dead end, beside a chest containing 'Unholy Icon.'  Head back a couple of room 
and go up the stairs to find a save point.  Descend the stairs once again and 
go up the ones below you, down (but not the way you came.)  It will take you 
to the upper area of a room you were in previously, ride the floating platform 
across to get a chest with a 'Wonder Amulet' in it.  Once again, back to the 
save point, and head up.  Don't go up the stairs toward the control panel at 
first, instead head right and open the chests there to get 'Wonder Elixir.'  
Use the controls in the centre and pull the switch on the right.  Return to 
the floating platform room and ride across to get a 'Great Axe.'  Head back 
and save your game before going in to pull the switch on the left.

o-- BOSS "Jette" ------------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| It seemed Jette has changed his image over the years.  He's definietely    |
| not going to be a pushover that's for sure, he's got a few tricks up       |
| his sleeve.  Even his simple physical attack is quite nasty, it just       |
| doesn't seem to end and deals over 1400 damage to a single character.  His |
| main attack however is the Shadow Break, an attack that hits your entire   |
| party for about 1100 damage without Spirit.  The most dangerous part       |
| about this attack is that it is very difficult to predict.  Jette's        |
| special ability is indeed, pretty special.  He has the ability to          |
| clone himself and create an exact copy.  As far as I know there is no      |
| way to tell the difference between the two clones so here's what you       |
| do.  Play defensively, using Spirit and healing your party.  When the      |
| clone attack you will now it, the clone cannot use Shadow Break and its    |
| physical attack deals damage in the single digits.  Note the position      |
| of the clone on the battlefield, the easiest way to do this is to see      |
| who the clone is standing closest to, then aim for the other one, that     |
| is the real Jette.  As long as he doesn't split again, anyone who targeted |
| the real Jette on a previous turn will still target him by default the     |
| next turn.  With this strategy you should be able to beat him fine.        |
|                                                                            |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

With that battle taken care of, go up and pull the left switch again that 
Jette moved.  Save your game outside the door and head up the stairs below 
you, ride the platform across which takes you to a hallway.  This leads inside 
and outside of the castle on your way up for a few levels, totally linear.  
Eventually once you reach a fork, at this point head right.  This will lead 
you around to a chest containing 'Warrior Icon.'  Return to the fork and take 
the upper branch around until you reach an elevator.  At the bottom head 
around behind to find a hidden chest containing 'Lost Grail.'  From here it's 
a straight path down past another save point and up toward the boss.

o-- BOSS "Cort" -------------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| Cort begins the battle by using something called Mystic Shield, what this  |
| does basically is defend automatically against all damage done from normal |
| attacks.  It does not however block art skills, so the more of those       |
| you can use the better.  Of course given that Miracle Arts are nothing     |
| but chains of art skills over and over, that's definetly your best bet.    |
| For me, Vah's Miracle art was doing over 4500 damage even with that        |
| shield in place, his defense against damage is surprisingly low.  Cort     |
| has more than just a shield of course, the Guily Cross will deal moderate  |
| damage to a single member of your party while the much more powerful       |
| Mystic Circle will do more than 1000.  Cort's most powerful attack is the  |
| ability to summon Juggernaut to attack the party, without Spirit the       |
| damage from this attack can approach 2000!  Not a pretty sight.  You'll    |
| have to be pretty offensive with the Miracles, have Gala healing every     |
| turn whether you need it or not, more than likely Cort will use an attack  |
| that needs to be healed anyway that turn (although in this battle for      |
| me, Gala was faster than Cort, which is pretty damn rare at this point.    |
| When Cort's shield is broken you absolutely MUST use Spirit with everyone  |
| regardless of HP next turn, he will almost certainly use Evil Seru Magic   |
| (Juggernaut) and if you don't use Spirit, you're dead.  You can heal the   |
| next turn.  From now until the end of the battle, he'll use it just        | 
| randomly, so always make sure you party's HP is above 2000.                |
|                                                                            |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

A forty second timer appears now, and you've got to escape, but the only exit 
is blocked!  Simply wait until about fifteen seconds remain and a scene will 
occur automatically.  After this return to Conkram for another scene, you'll 
be taken to Rim Elm.  Leave your house and speak with Gala down at the Genesis 
Tree.  Now if you think you're strong head for the beach, Tetsu is there and 
he's willing to fight you one on one.  He's ridiculously hard to defeat.  If 
you somehow manage to do it you'll get a 'Mettle Gem.'  Now head for Mei's 
house.  Finally go to the upper right, inside the elder's house and speak with 
Noa.  Another scene occurs here, a long one.  Coming up you've got a dungeon 
which I'm fairly sure you cannot leave once you enter, and has quite possibly 
the hardest normal boss in the game, so I recommend two things.  First of all, 
right here and now, boost your party by two levels, right here in Rim Elm, 
that shouldn't take too long at all.  Forget numbers in specific, whatever 
level you are at this point you've been able to get here, just boost it by 
two.  Next, beforegoing to Usu Mais stop by the Soren Camp and buy items, 
specifically Magic Fruits.  If you need to level up for awhile because you 
can't need the boss, you'll have to have some way to restore MP.  Upon 
arriving in Uru Mais head up to reach the portal to the Seru Kai.

o------- Item Checklist -------o  Make a right at the first fork to find a 
|                              |  chest containing 'Life Water.'  Return to 
| Life Water............._____ |  the fork and head left, there's a little 
| Triumph Armor.........._____ |  think path that goes off after a few steps, 
| Magic Fruit............_____ |  you'll find 'Triumph Armor' inside this 
| Healing Berry.........._____ |  chest.  Continue up and turn right, when it 
| Magic Water............_____ |  kind of opens up a bit, stick to the lower 
|                              |  right to find a chest contianing 'Magic 
o------------------------------o  Fruit.'  Make your way up and stay along the 
                                  upper right, a small path brings you around 
to get 'Healing Berry.'  Return to the main path and begin left, after going 
up this path will fork as well.  Take the left branch to get 'Magic Water.'  
When you reach the save point, if you're in any way apprehensive about the 
upcoming battle (which you should be) then be absolutely sure you save on a 
different file here.  Heal up your party and then go up to the next screen.

o-- BOSS "Songi" ------------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| When it comes to main bosses in this game, it doesn't get much more        |
| difficult than this.  Songi is a beast.  Imagine a boss whose physical     |
| attack is the most dangerous one he has, it may sound pathetic, but when   |
| that physical attack is capable of dealing over 3600 damage to a single    |
| character, the humour is somewhat lost.  It's true however, any character  |
| who does not use Spirit and is hit by Songi's attack is almost certain     |
| to die unless they can get some lucky blocks in.  Songi's other attack,    |
| the Chaos Flare or whatever it's called, deals a mere 1500 damage to       |
| one character without Spirit, you'll be jumping for joy when he uses that  |
| instead.  The weird thing is though, the more you damage Songi, it seems   |
| the less he is able to combo his attacks together.  For example, at the    |
| beginning his physical attack will hit you six times, and as the battle    |
| goes he'll start hitting you four times, then down to maybe twice, or even |
| once.  It doesn't stay like that though, he might get back up there again  |
| but know that this super dangerous attack does seem to get weaker as the   |
| battle goes on.  As always the best tactic is to use Spirit and Miracle    |
| Arts.  Like I said, this boss is probably MORE difficult than the boss     |
| of the game, so if you've been saving your Point Card, use it now!  Also   |
| you should have the Light Talisman equipped on someone, the Horn spell     |
| will be extremely handy, it revives dead party members and heals everyone  |
| up to 100% health.  Have Gala using Spoon almost every turn while Noa      |
| and Vahn cycle between arts and Spirit.  Good luck with this one.          |
|                                                                            |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

Following the battle is a long scene and then you'll be back on the mountain.  
First, before you leave, get into a battle and if you haven't already learn 
ALL of Noa's arts skills, there is a chart with all of them at the bottom of 
this guide.  With all of Noa's arts learned, examine the Genesis Tree to learn 
the spell "Terra," Noa's ultimate magic spell.  The same thing will happen if 
you learn all Vahn's arts and examine the Genesis tree in Sol, as well as 
learning all Gala's moves and examining the tree in East Voz Forest.  Use a 
Door of Light to exit the mountain and head for the final dungeon, Rim Elm.

still tapping X begin moving down from that chest examining the right wall as 
you go.  At about the middle of this path you will just receive the 'Mettle

first area but in the second area, make a right at the first one to get 'Ra-
Seru Club.'  Go back and head left, then left again to find a 'Magic 
Armband.'  Head down and make a right to get 'Ra-Seru Fangs', then another 
right to get 'Ra-Seru Blade.'  From here take the linear path to the final 
save point in the game.  If you think you're ready to take on the boss of the 
game then jump on those two poofy things on the ground to open the tunnel.

o-- BOSS "Final Boss" -------------------------------------------------------o
|                                                                            |
| With all these equipment upgrades you probably won't find this boss as     |
| difficult as Songi, but he does provide an adequate challenge for a        |
| boss of the game.  This boss takes you back to the days of Zeto and        |
| Xain, who indicated the coming a super powerful attack with a charge up    |
| turn.  This makes it easy because you can simply use this to know when     |
| you need to Spirit with everyone.  You'll HAVE to Spirit with everyone     |
| since his Final Crisis does about 3000 damage to everyone if you don't.    |
| Besides this attack he has a physical attack about as strong as Songi's,   |
| perhaps a little weaker.  Another attack called Doomsday is powerful as    |
| well, but not nearly as powerful as the Final Crisis.  Have Horn ready     |
| to summon at all times, it sure works a lot better than a Phoenix.  Also   |
| go nuts with the Point Card, Wonder Elixirs, and basically anything in     |
| your inventory, this is the final boss, who needs all this junk after!     |
|                                                                            |

Horn - The first one you can get.  Cara will automatically give you the Light

Jazz Club in Sol.  Bring the Light Egg to Zalan, the jeweler in Jeremi and he 
will turn it into the Light Talisman which lets you summon Horn.

Palma - Head for the Sol Muscle Dome and fight your way through the tournament 
enough times to win 100,000 coins.  When you talk to the lady and the prize 
exchange counter she'll sell you the Earth Egg for 100,000 coins.

Mule - Fishing!  You have to earn a total of 20,000 points fishing to get the 
Water Egg.  Head for that little fishing area near Buma and start fishing.  If 
you wish to fish well you'll need the Legendary Rod, grab it from the Usha 
Research station, it's just on the right after riding up the elevator leaning 
against a bedside table.  It only appears near the end of the game.

Jedo - When the final dungeon is available, head for West Voz forest and find 
the Dark Stone at the Genesis Tree, bring this stone to Zalan.

Meta - After Seru-Kai, and learning all Vahn's possible arts, head for the Sol 
Tower and examine the Genesis Tree down at the bottom to learn this.

Terra - After Seru-Kai, and learning all Noa's possible arts, head for Mt. 
Rikuroa and examine the Genesis Tree at the very top.

Lapis is the hardest boss in the game, if you include every boss.  Lapis is an 
optional boss which appears on top of Mt. Dhini at the end of the game when 
you have access to the final dungeon.  Simply climb the mountain to encounter 
this boss.  At the beginning of the battle Lapis will reduce your party's MP 
to 0/0 meaning you can't even replenish it, you must fight this battle without 
magic.  For that reason don't go up there unless you have a hefty supply of 
items and all the best equipment, if I were you I would climb down into the 
final dungeon and get all the Ra-Seru equipment.  Be sure to grab the Mettle 
Goblet from the final dungeon as well it will really help.  Your reward for 
defeating the boss is the Evil Medallion which basically puts your character 
into a berserk state where they attack using either a whole lot, or very 
little arts moves in a row.  Nothing too great, but no matter.

|                                Plot Summary                        (000H0) |
O============================================================================O

After creating the heavens and the Earth, god created humans.  Humans were 
weak and impulsive coming close to extinction many times so go gave them a 
special power called Seru.  Seru lived with humans, obeyed their commands and 
enhanced their powers.  When not attached to a human a Seru looks much like a 
stone figure.  This time of prosperity however came to an end and the Mist 
appeared throughout the land.  It made the Seru begin attacking humans and 
nearly brought an end to the era of humans.  Those that survived escaped to 
desolate areas, like one small village surrounded by a large wall.

Here we are introduced to Vahn, the blue haired hero of the game.  He 
approaches a small leafless green tree that extends just above his head.  The 
elder appears and mentions this is the Genesis Tree.  He tells Vahn that 
tomorrow he will become a hunter and thus an adult.  Vahn leaves the tree and 
meets up with a green haired girl.  She reminds him of the hunting clothes she 
is making for him.  She says she'll wait for him back at his house with his 
little sister Nene and father, who was crippled awhile ago and can no longer 
walk without crutches.  Meim the green haired girl, takes the measurements she 
needs for the clothes before leaving.  Vahn's father Val tells her to give his 
regards to her father, Juno.  When Vahn leaves it seems the hunters are back, 
but they're carrying someone on a stretcher.  It's Juno, Mei's father.  The 
men apologize to Mei saying the Mist came earlier than usual and he was 
attacked by Seru monsters.  After spending some time with her, Vahn decides to 
return to his house and rest.  Something is happening during the night, loud 
crashing can be heard.  Vahn goes outside to examine it and finds all the 
other villagers standing around the gate as well.  The Elder tells Vahn the 
wall has protected them for a long time and should continue to do so, but 
suddenly a voice can be heard.  Some kind of magic wizard man teleports 
through the front gate.  He calls the townsfolk pathetic, living in fear of 
the mist.  They thought the wall could protect them... they thought wrong.

The man, or thing, introduces himself as Zeto and he is there to bring the 
salvation of the Mist to them.  Outside the wall an enormous creature shoots a 
burst of fire and knocks down the wall to let a horde of Mist creatures 
inside.  Vahn quickly runs to the Genesis Tree, there is a girl waiting there 
who notes that the mist does not get near the tree which is faintly glowing.  
Vahn softly touches the tree and a red object descends down.  The object says 
to Vahn that it is speaking directly into his mind.  It introduces itself as 
Meta, a Ra-Seru and it has been waiting inside the Genesis Tree for someone 
like him.  It tells Vahn that together they can help bring an end to the Mist.  
The Mist is slowly killing the Genesis Tree, using the power and life force of 
the villagers they can revive the tree.  Meta tells Vahn to go quickly and 
assemble everyone at the tree.  Once all the villagers surround the tree they 
pray to be rid of the mist and with that, Meta is able to use its power and 
revive the Genesis Tree which grows large and begins to drive away all the 
Mist in Rim Elm.  Meta tells Vahn that the power of the Genesis Tree lets the 
Ra-Seru grow stronger, and while Rim Elm is now safe there are still many 
places throughout the world which are covered in Mist.  Vahn must set out to 
save those places from the evil Mist.  With that Vahn falls into a deep sleep.

The next day all the villagers gather once again, but this time it is to send 
the bodies of the dead out to sea, including Mei's father Juno.  Before he 
leaves, Vahn and the village Elder gather near the Genesis Tree one final 
time.  The elder tells Vahn it may still be possible to save Mei's mother.  
Mei's mother Maya used to work at Biron Monastery but ten years ago the Mist 
came.  They lost contact with her and no one knows what became of Biron 
Monastery.  Hopefully Vahn can find out exactly what happened to her.  When he 
tries to leave Mei catches up and gives him the Hunter Clothes she had been 
making for him.  With that Vahn finally ventures outside of Rin Elm.

The first place Vahn reaches is a kind of fountain oasis area.  There he meets 
a man named Lezam Who explains that he serves under King Drake, ruler of Drake 
kingdom.  On his way to Rim Elm to warn them about the Mist he was engulfed by 
Mist himself and turned into a monster.  It was thanks to Vahn and the Genesis 
Tree that he was able to be free once again.  King Drake now needs help as 
well, the castle is surrounded by Mist.  Vahn agrees to go and help.  He 
arrives at the castle which is of course surrounded by Mist.  The people there 
has wisely locked themselves in prison-like cages to keep them from hurting 
other people, this includes King Drake.  Vahn finds a letter written by the 
king.  It says that anyone who makes it through the Mist must have geat 
powers.  They have locked themselves in cages hoping that someone can come to 
save them.  Without being able to do anything for the people of the castle at 
the moment Vahn leaves through the North exit and heads for a nearby mountain.  
When he gets there Meta says it senses the power of yet another Ra-Seru.

The scene changes to that of a red haired girl in a dark area.  Someone is 
speaking to he, saying they want to find her.  When the scene fades the girl 
is laying beside a wolf named Terra who begins to speak to her.  It seems the 
girl was dreaming.  They go and have Noa practice, Terra says it is to prepare 
for the time when they will leave the cave they live in to revive the Genesis 
Tree on top of the mountain.  On the way back however there is an Earthquake 
and the mist appears.  Terra says the time to leave and find the tree is now.  
The two of them make their way up Mt. Rikuroa to the top after defeating a 
rather nasty rock Golem.  They sit down at the top of the mountain and Terra 
says there is something very important that must be said.  Terra says to Noa 
that wolves do not normally speak, Terra is actually the Seru attached to the 
wolf.  Terra wanted to stay attached to the wolf until Noa was fully grown but 
the wolf is reaching the end of its life and will die soon.  That is the 
reason they have come to the mountain, with the power of the Genesis Tree 
Terra can transfer from the wolf to Noa.  Then Terra can help her find her 
real parents.  The two of them continue toward the top and find the Genesis 
Tree.  Terra says this is the tree where it heard Noa crying as a baby.  Her 
body was too small to have a Ra-Seru attached so instead Terra chose to attach 
itself to the wolf.  As the two of them approach the tree suddenly Zeto, the 
evil mage from Rim Elm appears.  Zeto says he was the one who destroyed their 
little cave and then proceeds to send a flying monster at the two of them.  

Meanwhile Vahn is at the base of the mountain, Meta says it can hear friends 
up at the top in need of help.  Vahn reaches the top and helps Noa defeat the 
evil flying lion monster.  With that Terra tells them to approach the Genesis 
Tree.  Vahn uses the power of Meta and his own prayers to awaken the Genesis 
Tree at the top of Mt. Rikuroa.  The effect of the tree spreads far and wide 
all the way to Drake Castle where the inhabitants slowly begin to return to 
normal humans.  Vahn and Noa return to the castle to speak with the King.  He 
apologizes for blocking off the Water Gate which blocks access to Biron 
Monastery.  He gives Vahn the Water Key so that it may be closed and the river 
crossed.  He also thanks the two of them for everything they did.  One more 
thing the king adds before they go, he knows that they have specific quests 
but he asks that they do everything they can to rid the awful Mist from the 
world and end the suffering.  It's a large job but they can't refuse, it's 
basically their goal as well.  They leave the castle and find that all sorts 
of new shops have sprung up in the Drake Kingdom now that the Mist is gone.  
Vahn uses the Water Gate key to block the river so they can get across safely.  
Mist fills this part of the continent as well it seems that neither of the 
Genesis Trees have much effect on it.  Soon enough after traveling East for 
quite a ways they finally reach the Biron Monastery they have searched for.

Arriving at Biron Monastery they find some kind of fan device that when turned 
on, blows the Mist out of the halls and opens up a door.  The party is greeted 
by a guard and brought inside to be introduced to master Zopu.  After this 
Zopu says they will have a party later tonight in their honour.  Vahn and Noa 
head up to the room above where they meet Maya.  Maya is so happy to see Vahn, 
she thought she would never see anyone from Rim Elm again.  There are so many 
questions she wants to ask but she has agreed to help with the party so she 
needs to go for now.  At the feasst Vahn and Noa explain everything that has 
happened to them, to Mei and to Rim Elm.  Maya is very sorry not to have been 
there when Juno died, she had hoped to see him again someday.  Vahn speks to 
the Master Teacher of the monastery and to Songi, the other high ranking 
martial artist.  Songi says that while Seru may be against Biron's teachings, 
they make people more powerful, so he wants to get his hands on one.  

Zopu enters the room and asks Vahn and Noa if they would be willing to head 
for West Voz Forest to revive the Genesis Tree there, of course they agree.  
Zopu assigns the Master Teacher to assist them as well.  Noa asks if he has 
any other name besides "Master Teacher."  He tells them that since they are 
not of biron they may call him by his real name, Gala.  He doesn't want them 
to get too attached however, they have to remember that he hates all Seru and 
their followers.  When the group heads through West Voz forest they are 
saddened to find that the Genesis Tree has died, and even the power of the Ra-
Seru cannot save it.  Fortunately however the Ra-Seru Egg inside the tree has 
survived.  They take the egg but see something off in the distance, there's 
something going on at Biron Monastery!  They have to get get back!

When they arrive it seems that Biron Monastery has been fully penetrated by 
the mist.  Zopu explains that it was Songi who came along with the Mist 
monsters wearing a Seru on his arm, Songi has betrayed them all.  Gala has 
already left, most likely gone to East Voz Forest so that he can find Songi.  
Vahn and Noa go next door to the room with Maya inside, she is there but she 
has been transformed into a Seru monster.  Noa tries to rip the Seru off her 
arm but Terra says they must leave it, simply rip it off of Maya and she will 
die.  They have to rid Biron of the Mist, that is the only way to save her.  
Vahn finds a letter on the ground, it is unfinished.  It is a letter to Maya's 
daughter Mei, she is writing to say how she misses and loves her daughter but 
there is still something that compels her to stay at the Biron Monastery, Gala 
and Songi, they are like sons to her.  She writes "Please forgive..." but 
that's where the letter ends.  Vahn and Noa vow to rid this place of the mist 
and head to East Voz Forest hoping the tree is still alive.

At the East Voz Forest Gala wants the two of them to know that even if Songi 
attacks, they should allow Gala to take care of him alone, it is his duty.  At 
the end of the forest the group finds the Genesis Tree and it is still alive.  
As Vahn goes up to revive it suddenly Songi appears, he is now wearing a Seru.  
He and Gala fight a bit but the battle is really one sided in Songi's favour, 
it's all thanks to the power of his new Seru.  He says Gala is so pathetic 
that of course, a couple of minions are enough to take care of him, which they 
aren't, but by then Songi is gone.  Vahn and Noa pray to revive the Gensis 
Tree which then grows large enough to free Biron of the Mist.  The three trees 
combined are enough to start pushing away all the thick Mist from the factory.  
It's also enough to hatch the Ra-Seru Egg that they were carrying.  The Ra-
Seru is Ozma, and it has chosen Gala.  Gala accepts the Ra-Seru to give him 
the power to defeat Songi.  When they return to Biron Monastery everyone is 
happy to have the Mist gone.  Zopu has the un-enviable task of excummunicating 
Gala for wearing a Seru and defying the teachings of Biron.  Gala understands 
of course, and agrees with the decision.  Maya tells them that the trees have 
cleared the Mist and revealed a giant castle, she only assumes that is Vahn's 
next destination, and it is.  The giant Mist Generator castle.

As they proceed through the Mist Generator the party comes across Songi.  Gala 
tells the party to stand back so he may fight one on one.  With the power of 
his new Ra-Seru, Gala is able to hold Songi back in what comes out to be 
pretty much a draw.  Songi tells Gala that Zeto is waiting at the Mist 
Generator, and not to lose to someone like him.  Noa says that next time Songi 
appears, she is going to fight too.  Gala thinks that perhaps the day will 
come when they all must face him.  No matter, on toward the Mist Generator.  
When they arrive they find the Mist Generator is absolutely enormous, it's 
going to be hard to destroy something so large.  Ozma says that it is quite 
possible for the humans and the Ra-Seru to destroy the machine together.  As 
they approach it, Zeto, the evil guy from Rim Elm appears in front of them.  
Zeto turns himself into a giant crab monster but not even that is enough to 
stop the heroes and their mighty Ra-Seru.  He cries out for forgiveness from 
Prince Cort before fading into nothingness.  With that the group unites their 
power and sends a spark of light which solidifies the Mist Generator to a 
stone form and causes it to crumble and break.  The land is now free of Mist.  
But there are other kingdoms still surrounded, they cannot rest now!

Upon returning to Biron Monastery Zopu tells Gala that he must chase down 
Songi and help to free the people of the North who are still trapped by the 
Mist.  Noa comes running into the room and says that Maya has agreed to return 
once again to Rim Elm, this is good news indeed.  They head off North of Biron 
to reach the ancient cave leading to the North.  While passing through the 
party comes across an old man who runs an inn.  When they stay at the inn Noa 
has yet another vision of a white light in the distance calling to her, the 
voice is saying it wants to see her.  It's Noa's mother's voice, she says she 
is in the deepest Mist where it is freezing cold.  When they awake the group 
heads up through the cave.  On the other side is another store, this one run 
by an old woman.  There they spend the night as well and all three of them 
have some kind of special vision.  A voice tells them its name is Hari and it 
inhabits the world between the real world and dreams.  Hari says they must 
travel to Octam deep in the heart of Sebucus to find the true meaning of 
dreams... sounds like a plan.  Off they go to find Octam.

Along the way the party comes across the village of Vidna which keeps the Mist 
away with its large windmills which are powered by the underground hot 
springs.  The party meets with a woman in a house here along with some Biron 
monks.  The woman has a connection to Hari who told her to wait here until 
someday when three youths would show up wearing Ra-Seru.  They would then be 
told to go to Octam and read the four sacred books.  After this the party 
makes their way South to Jeremi, a city which has been overtaken by the Mist.  
At the top of the tower is a Genesis Tree but it is being eaten by an enormous 
Seru monster.  Only after this monster is defeated can they revive the Genesis 
Tree.  The tree grows large and begins to dissipate the Mist away.  After that 
the people of Jeremi come out to thank the party from the bottom of their 
hearts.  Outside the tower all the townspeople are waiting to smother their 
affection on Vahn, Noa and Gala, it's a bit overwhelming.  

When they reach the bottom of town past the sealed gate a woman appears.  She 
introduces herself as Cara and says that she too is looking for the treasure.  
She's here to loot the place since once people heard of the Mist they all 
escaped to the underground shelter.  The only thing she found was something 
called the Star Pearl which she pawned off to a jeweler in Jeremi named Zalan.  
With that as their only clue, and the elevator leading to the underground 
locked, they have no choice but to return to Jeremi.  Zalan is happy to give 
them the STar Pearl for free after all they did, finding his son in Vidna and 
letting him know he was still alive.  The group takes the Star Pearl to the 
Shadow Gate next where they run into three mysterious people.

The head of the groud appears, saying he's surprised to find the supposed Ra-
Seru heroes are just a bunch of kids.  Gi Delilas is the head of the group, 
along with Lu Delilas and Che Delilas, together they are... the Delilases!  Gi 
wishes he and Vahn could have had a one on one battle but there just isn't 
time and the three of them disappear.  Oh well.  After setting the stone 
statues in place the stone flower in the centre opens up and they are able to 
throw the Star Oeal inside, revealing a secret underground path.  This 
underground path leads to the hidden city beneath Octam where everyone fled 
when the Mist came.  Right as they enter the town all is not well, the ground 
begins to shake and one woman barely makes it out of her house as the support 
it is sitting on collapses and crumbles toward the darkness below.  

This is a common occurrence in the town, many people don't expect to survive 
much longer.  After paying a visit to the mayor a soldier runs in screaming 
that Hari has finally awakened, with this good news the mayor goes to see him 
right away.  Vahn follows and finds that Hari will only speak to him, not the 
mayor.  There are three Haris, small infants, one who tells of the past, one 
of the present and one of the future.  The Hari of the past explains to the 
party that there are two worlds, the normal world and the world where all Seru 
come from called Seru-kai.  The worlds were supposed to remain separate 
however the Seru gained access to the human world at some point.  At the heart 
of the Mist is a being bent on destroying the worl, neither Seru nor human.  
The Hari who speks of the present tells Vahn's party that there are dangerous 
monsters in the Fire Path that runs below Octam, defeating them is the only 
way to save the town.  The Hari of the future says even with the power of Rem 
it is impossible to predict the future.  He says only that a tagic event will 
shatter Vahn's hopes, Noa's parents are still alive and in Conkram but if she 
goes to see them she will be very alarmed when she does.  Gala will find a 
nightmare in Songi, he must remember that Songi is like his other half, his 
alter ego.  As they leave the house cuddenly an earthquake shakes the ground 
and destroys the house behind them.  The spirit of Hari lives on and tells 
them to retain hope and keep fighting, the world is depending on them.

The party heads for the Fire Path that Hari told them about, at the bottom 
they find a large minotaur named Xain smashing the support pillars under 
orders from someone named Dohati.  They do battle with this creature and when 
it does, the entity that was using it as a host body comes out and decides it 
will use its last ounce of strength to bother the group!  It descends into the 
hot magma and turns the entire cave to ice!  Despite this inconvenience it 
seems the town of Octam is saved for now.  The mayor asks them to do him one 
more favour, he would like them to retrieve some Spring Salts from the town of 
Vidna to put in his bath.  With this request they return to Vidna only to find 
that due to the ice and cooling of the magma, the windmills have stopped.  
Everyone is hiding out in the underground shelter Danpas built back when they 
all called him crazy... NOW WHO'S CRAZY YOU CRAZY VILLAGERS.  Anyway they 
manage to grab the Spring Salts and bring them o the mayor of Octam.  He 
directs them to the town of Ratayu where they may be able to find something 
though says the leader is a little off his rocker.  They head now for Ratayu.

When the party arrives Meta and the other Ra-Seru instantly sense the presance 
of a Genesis Tree, but its energy level is fluctuatiing wildly, whatever that 
might mean for the tree, who knows.  At the caslte they meet with Saryu, the 
leader of Ratayu.  Despite being possessed by a Seru he begs the party to 
revive the Genesis tree so her may have his bride.  The tree he says is atop 
Mt. Letona and gives them the key to get there.  Upon reaching the top the 
party finds the tree surrounded by some kind of forcefield.  When they finally 
realize there's nothing they can do the three of them go to leave and that's 
when Songi appears.  He is the one who put up the forcefield and says he will 
only deactivate it if they can defeat him.  Once he is weakened he says he is 
a man of his word and deactivates the forcefield, saying the he looks forward 
to the next meeting.  With that they are able to revive the Genesis Tree and 
free the people of Ratayu from the horrible Mist finally.

Back in town there is a woman dressed in purple, she says she is to be what is 
called a Seru Bride.  Saryu chooses them and after they go to the castle, they 
never return.  Noa thinks this is awful and volunteers to go in the girl's 
place, she says she has a Ra-Seru and she is strong, so she won't die.  Vah 
and gala follow her into the castle where they find she is in line to be 
consumed by the enormous Seru Juggernaut under the orders of Saryu.  When they 
confront Saryu he transforms into a monster.  Vahn's party is able to defeat 
him and the Sim-Seru that was controlling him is destroyed.  The real Saryu 
immediately shuts off the machine.  He admits responsibility for everything 
that has happened, a man named Dohati brought the Seru and he foolishly put it 
on.  One Juggernaut was already made during the time he was being controlled.  
He gives Vahn the West Ratayu Key which will allow them to reach Dohati's 
castle in the hopes they can correct his mistakes and free the land from Mist.

The party heads for the castle where they find the Mist Generator and Dohati 
waiting.  Upon defeating Dohati the Mist is rid from all the land, including 
Octam.  When they return there, the group finds out that a special Seru exists 
that can move like a suspended tram car and take them over to the next 
continent.  The Mist is so thick that they must make the final stretch 
themselves however.  Upon crashing on the other continent, thy wake up to find 
Cara there as well.  It turns out she is able to freely travel through the 
Mist because of a Ra-Seru Egg she has.  Noa wants her to give it to her but 
Cara says there's no reason to do such a thing and runs off.  

Outside of this station is the enormous Tower of Sol which has, like many 
other things, been engufled by the Mist.  When they get inside they find an 
old man clad in a large suit of armor, his name is Gaza.  He is ready to fight 
them until he realizes they aren't Seru monsters.  Allowing them to pass, Gaza 
continues down further toward the Mist.  On the upper floors where there is no 
Mist the party finds Cara and a man named Grantes in a bar, arguing over 
something.  They decide to leave them to their own business and head off on 
their way.  At the top of the tower is an old Biron Monk.  Gala is able to 
impress him with his skills of Biron Martial arts, so they are invited inside.  
The man, referred to as Old Deez, says they do indeed have a Genesis Tree but 
pulls out a small sapling.  When they try to leave it seems a problem has 
arisen.  Gaza is there and he tells the party he will not let their evil plan 
succeed.  They do battle and Vahn's group barely manages to defeat him.  
That's when Songi appears.  Songi scolds them for attacking an old man and 
says he will do the honourable thing and heal his wounds.  What is Songi up to 
this time, they don't know, but they can't worry about that right now.

On the way down to the bottom of the tower there is a control panel, when 
activated the hologram of a man named Dr. Usha appears.  The hologram man says 
he does not know whether he will be alive at the time anyone sees this, but 
whoever has opened the gate which he sealed to keep the Mist away, must take 
the Genesis Tree Seedling and bring it to life!  The hologram then disappears.  
At the bottom of the tower they find where the Genesis Tree needs to be 
planted but something is wrong.  Songi is back, and he's brought the old man 
Gaza with him.  Gaza has now been fitted with an evil Sim-Seru.  When the 
party defeats him this time there's no chance of recovery.  The Sim-Seru is 
separated from Gaza's body but Gaza is just too weak.  Before he dies, Gaza's 
strong spirit is fused with the Genesis Tree seedling, allowing it to absorb 
his body into the tree, this way his Spirit will remain alive in the tree.  

Meanwhile up at Zora's Floating Castle in the sky those three ninja brothers 
are speaking with Zora.  She tells them to leave Vahn and his companions 
alivee for now, they aren't really in the way.  The party heads for the Usha 
Research Center where they meet Dr. Usha.  After telling him their story, 
about how on the way here, they found the frozen town of Buma and the frozen 
Genesis Trees.  Usha says that a Seru in Novora called Koru freezes 
everything, he must be destroyed but first they need TimeSpace Bombs and to 
make those they need the Fire Droplet.  The Fire Droplet is obtained in Uru 
Mais, from Tieg.  They must go to Uru Mais and dream their dreams in order to 
get the Fire Droplet from Tieg.  When they arrive there are three long halls, 
one for each of them, to sleep and to dream.  Vahn goes first, Vahn has a 
dream about the time when his sister was born, and his mother died just after 
giving birth to her.  Vahn as a child tries to go through the Mist to reach 
Drake Castle where he can get special medicine to save his mother.  Val, his 
father, goes out to find him.  Vahn makes it home okay but Val is attacked and 
loses the use of his leg.  Vahn feel guilty about this but the dream people 
say he should not worry so much about the past as he does now.

Next is Noa's dream there is a man named Jette talking to her parents who are 
king and queen of Conkram.  He says something about prince Cort and then 
leaves.  The king follows him out.  Later that night it's the Mist, spreading 
throughout Conkram.  The Queen is speaking to a Soren late at night, Sorens 
are winged humanoids with the ability to fly.  She tells the Soren to take her 
baby Noa away somewhere safe, along the way the Soren runs out of energy or 
something and falls on the mountain where Terra the Ra-Seru and the wolf, find 
baby Noa.  That is Noa's dream sequence.  Gala's dream shows a tournament back 
at Biron, Songi knew he wouldn't be able to win so he tricked Gala into taking 
a medicine that makes your body numb.  After doing it, Songi was only more 
miserable and angry, thinking Gala was such a big man for letting him win.

After all the dreams are over the group is given a Fire Droplet from Tieg.  
When they go to leave suddenly the ground begins to shake.  It's the enormous 
Seru Juggernaut!  Juggernaut appears and totally obliterates Uru Mais 
completely.  It's a nasty sight.  With Usu Mais gone they have no choice but 
to return to the research station.  Thanks to the Fire Droplet Dr. Usha is 
able to create the TImSpace Bombs.  Now it's off to Nivora Ravine.

The party blasts open the entrance and finds Koru deep inside.  Just as they 
are ready to blast the enormous ice Seru, the Delilas family shows up once 
again.  The three of them attack the party in a one-on-one battle fashion.  
They are defeated but in their last moments of life they fuse with Koru and 
set an explosive timer.  Before they can finalize the command to blow Koru up 
(and about hald the continent with him) the party once again defeats them and 
stops the explosion.  They set the TimeSpace Bombs for a little more of a 
controlled explosion and quickly run.  With Koru gone the town of Buma has 
been restored, it is no longer covered completely with ice.

Back in Buma they revive all the Genesis Trees and Cara shows up.  Noa tells 
her to hand over the Ra Seru Egg but she won't, at least not now.  She shows 
them some sheet music and says if she can get her old love, Grantes to come 
back, she'll give them the egg.  After playing the music for Grantes in Sol, 
he remembers Cara and returns to her.  He was once a Soren (winged people_ but 
foolizhly helped the evil Zora create the Floating Castle Mist Generator and 
his wings were taken from him.  Now united once again, Grantes gives the party 
the Soren Flute which they can use to call the Soren from the top of Mt. 
Dhini.  The Soren will be able to take them to the Floating Castle.  

The Soren do indeed agree to the plan and bring the party to the Floating 
Castle where they find Zora.  After defeating her they go to destroy the Mist 
Generator but Songi is already there destroying it himself.  It turns out that 
Mist Generators need the egg of a Ra-Seru in order to be created, the Ra-Serus 
on their arms had been keeping this secret from the party thinking that 
perhaps if they knew the truth, they wouldn't have destroyed the Mist 
Generators.  It doesn't matter now, it turns out this one was a fake designed 
to bring the party and kill them.  With the fake Mist Geneator Destroyed the 
castle begins to fall out of the sky.  They barely manage to get out and be 
rescued by the Soren before the whole thing falls to the ground.  

Their only option now is to head for Conkram to find the real Mist Generator.  
With the help of the Soren they arrive to find the entire city of Conkram has 
been swallowed by a Sim-Seru, including Noa's parents.  They are barely able 
to speak, but say the door to the Mist Generator can only be opened with a 
Nemesis Gem, and none exist in the world.  The only way to get one is to use 
the Seru Flame to go back in time, and take it from Conkram's Past.

In Conkram past they find many familiar faces like Zeto and Dohati, working as 
servants for the king and queen.  Some kind of special weapon is to be 
unveiled the next day so the party decides to rest at the inn and find out 
what it is.  Everyone gathers as Prince Cort and Jette prepare for the 
display, their new weapon is called the Mist and it will make their solders 
many times stronger.  When the demonstration begins the Mist is out of control 
and breaks free of the cage, surrounding the townspeople.  Vah, Noa and Gala 
jump down into the whole and destory the Rogue which is the evil presance 
allowing the Mist to spread out of control.  As a reward for stopping the 
Mist, the king awards the party the Nemesis Gem.  With that they travel back 
to the present and use it to open up the door to Jette's Fortress.

Inside Vahn and the party encounter Jette who has attached himself to an 
ultra-powerful Sim-Seru.  Unfortunately for him it's no macth for the strength 
of the Ra-Serus and he is easily defeated.  It's not over yet, Juggernaut 
still sits in a pool of Mist in the middle of this fortress, for the sake of 
everyone they must destory the final Mist Generator!  As they go to do it 
though, Cort appears.  Noa screams out at him, he is her older brother of 
course, but only by blood.  Cort has truly been driven mad by the power of the 
Mist.  With their combined power, Cort is unable to defeat Vahn's party and 
stumbles to the ground.  With his last bit of effort he throws himself over 
the side and falls into the Mist pool with Juggernaut.  The Mist Generator is 
destroyed, Juggernaut is stopped and all is well... so they think.

Upon returning to Conkram they find nothing but desolation.  The enormous SIm-
Seru that had fused with the town, caused the town to die with it when the 
Mist stopped.  Noa is heartbroken and crying, her parents are lost, but they 
must have known this would happen when they went them off to stop the Mist.  
With all this, there is only one thing left to do, return to Rim Elm.

The party is hailed as heroes and everyone celebrates now that the world is 
free of Mist.  All is well for Vahn, Noa and Gala unless a mysterious visitor 
appears one day asking for them.  The young boy who announces his arrival says 
the man's name is Songi.  Songi confronts them, saying he no longer has any 
interest in their lives, all that matters to him is the conquest of the Mist 
and the Seru.  Along with him, he has brought Juggernaut, alive and well.  
Juggernaut fuses his enormous form with Rim Elm just like the other Seru did 
with Conkram.  Only Vahn's party is able to escape being consumed by it.  
Songi also seals off the entrance leading down inside Juggernaut with the 
power of Seru-Kai, the Seru world.  In order to break the seal they must 
travel to the Seru world.  The only way to get there is through Uru Mais.

Upon reaching Seru-Kai, they find Songi sucking the life out of the Genesis 
Tree.  They battle him one final time and bring him to his knees.  Songi's 
Seru seperates from him, and without a Seru, he is unable to exist in the Seru 
world and he disintegrates in front of their eyes.  The Genesis tree of too 
far gone to survive however, it seems the Ra-Seru will soon die and the party 
along with them.  Just when it seems like all hope is lost, the three spirits 
of Hari, past present and future reappear.  They say that through the power of 
Tieg, their spirits are able to live on in immortality.  They help destory all 
the crippling magic barriers Songi used on the tree, enough so that Vah, Noa 
and Gala are able to revive it and break the seal to Juggernaut.

Back in the real world once again they descend into Juggernaut.  The residents 
of Rim Elm are all fused with Juggernauts body, blind and suffering.  Vahn 
promises he will defeat Juggernaut and save their lives.  At the very heart of 
the monster Vahn finds something unexpected.  It seems that Cort fused himself 
with the enormous beast at the moment of death.  Cort will not allow them to 
stop Juggernaut and he attacks the party.  Of course, this is their moment of 
victory and no one is going to stop them now.  This leads to a happy ending of 
course, one of four possible different ones that really don't differ that 
much.  It's simply based on what you choose at the Genesis Tree.

|                                                                            |
| Since you've got Terra with you it's going to be extremely hard to lose    |
| against this boss given Terra will always heal you when your HP gets down  |
| to critical levels and that's not to mention of course any healing you     |
| give yourself.  Really all you need to do for this battle since you still  |
| don't have any magic spells is use the Spirit ability to boost up your     |
| attack meter.  After doing that input the following command, you should    |
| have six slots: up, down, up, down, up, down.  That should maximize        |
| your damage.  This battle is going to be easier obviously if the boss      |
| focuses his attacks on Terra.  The boss has two attacks, a basic physical  |
| attack and a much more powerful attack called Jagged Earth.  If you use    |
| Spirit right before the boss uses Jagged Earth on you the damage will be   |
| reduced significantly so that's always a bonus. (000B1)                    |
|                                                                            |
| This is the first real boss of the game, and they certainly don't make it  |
| easy for you.  Without Terra helping out in the battle and healing you     |
| it means you'll have to take care of things yourself.  Luckily Vahn is     |
| willing to help out and he's here with Meta and hopefully the Gimard and   |
| Vera spells as well.  Vahn should cast Gimard until he's down to about     |
| 20 MP which should give you about one or two uses.  Noa should use Spirit  |
| every othe turn and attack on the turns in between.  For some good arts    |
| attacks to use with six slots check out the lists of arts for each         |
| character at the bottom of this guide.  Caruban has a couple of normal     |
| attacks like the Flap attack and the Bite attack which both do moderate    |
| physical damage but can often be blocked especially if you used Spirit     |
| that turn.  After casting Gimard and running low on MP Vahn should switch  |
| over to the Tornado Flame attack which can be performed with the command   |
| right, right, left.  There's no need to Spirit charge for this one unless  |
| you're low on AP of course.  Now what you REALLY need to watch out for is  |
| the boss' Fire Breath attack, by far the most dangerous one you will face. |
| This attack deals a good 150 damage to not one but both of your party      |
| members.  Ouch.  The best way to recover from this is the use the Healing  |
| Bloom you picked up on the way to the boss, but remember you only have     |
| one so after that you'll need to use Vera or something.  (000B2)           |
|                                                                            |
| It seems you are only worthy of fighting two Seru enemies, but that's      |
| no matter at the moment, you need to focus on surviving this battle.  Like |
| many similar battles in any game, when you're fighting against two         |
| opponents the battle will always get exponentially easier once one of      |
| those two opponents is defeated, so remember to focus all your attacks on  |
| a single Viguro.  The bosses only have two attacks, but they are           |
| extremely nasty.  The normal physical attack can deal around 225 damage    |
| which will really hurt, fortunately it's only a physical attack so there's |
| a good chance you characters will block it from time to time.  The other   |
| more dangerous attack is the Thunder Break which deals about 225 damage    |
| of the Thunder element to a single party member and cannot be blocked.     |
| Fortunately however you do have one advantage, the Ra-Seru Egg you found   |
| in the West Voz Forest can be equipped as an accessory and serves to       |
| reduce Thunder based damage.  At least one character will have the         |
| benefit of it.  Vah and Noa should use Spirit every other turn (which will |
| also significantly reduce the amount of damage you take from Thunder       |
| Break) and then attack with their Hyper Arts when the chance arises.  At   |
| this point in the game Gala really sucks, not only does he have a small    |
| attack bar and no Hyper Arts, he also has no magic.  Gala definitely       |
| gets the job of being the item user, have him ready with a Healing Bloom   |
| but always try to predict when you'll need it and use it early since       |
| Gala is so slow he won't always use it at the beginning of the turn.       |
| As you could probably tell, the Viguro enemies have an element symbol      |
| beside their names and can indeed be absorbed into your Ra-Seru.  They're  |
| so powerful your maximum MP when full still probably isn't enough to       |
| actually use the magic, and it certainly isn't the last time you will see  |
| this enemy.  There's really no good reason to focus a lot of effort in     |
| trying to obtain them, but if you really want it, do it. (000B3)           |
|                                                                            |
| Before you attempt this battle you should make sure that Gala has acquired |
| the Vera Seru.  Since he will be the only one fighting, being able to heal |
| himself without using any items will come in quite handy.  Songi is a      |
| powerful foe and he proves this with his physical attacks dealing up to    |
| 200 damage with each combo depending on Gala's armour.  This will hurt     |
| quite a bit given you only have one party member fighting in the battle so |
| you may find that you have to heal every other turn or every three turns   |
| perhaps.  Songi also has one more powerful attack, his Hyper Wave will     |
| send a blast of energy toward Gala for more than 250 damage.  It's pretty  |
| hard to predict when he will use it since it's fairly random but if you're |
| spiriting every third turn there's a good chance you'll end up really      |
| cutting down the damage on that one.  Use Gala's Thunder Punch for a good  |
| source of damage that doesn't use up his MP since you'll likely need that  |
| for healing.  If not then summoning whatever the strongest Seru magic      |
| spell you have at this point may be a good idea.  Theeder is always a      |
| good choice in situations like these.  If you just can't seem to beat      |
| Songi there are other options.  First of all looking at your item stock    |
| you have Healing Flowers which are better than Vera magic.  You probably   |
| still have that Shield Elixir you picked up recently and it should         |
| seriously reduce the damage from his physical attack.  There's always      |
| the Point Card of course, but I wouldn't use it here unless you really     |
| have to.  Lastly as the final resort, remember you just got a Door of      |
| Light out of the chest beside the save point, use it and go level. (000B4) |
|                                                                            |
| Be sure you have all those Deep Sea Jewels equipped that I told you to     |
| purchase back in Biron Monastery, you'll be glad you did.  Begin the       |
| battle by having everyone use Spirit.  Now on the next turn here's what    |
| is (in my opinion) the best combos you can use at this point.  I haven't   |
| spent anytime leveling up apart from not running away from battles, and    |
| Vahn has six slots after Spirit, Noa has seven slots after spirit and      |
| Gala has five slots after Spirit.  If you don't have this you must have    |
| run from most of the battle thus far.  Anyway assuming they have that      |
| much each, use the follows combos for massive damage after Spirit:  Vahn   |
| should simply do: right, right, left, right, right left.  Noa has an       |
| awesome seven slot combo: down, up, up, up, left, down, right.  Gala       |
| should just use the Neo Rising move: left, left, right, up left.  As for   |
| Zeto he has three attacks.  A normal physical attack with the claw that    |
| shouldn't be too much to worry about, an attack called Poison Bubbles that |
| does moderate damage to one character and inflicts the poison status.  The |
| final and ultimate attack is the reason you're wearing those Deep Sea      |
| Jewels.  Zeto will use one turn to "Call Wave" which means the Big         |
| Wave is coming on the next turn, this gives you a huge advantage in that   |
| you can use Spirit with everyone and really reduce the damage you take     |
| from the wave not including the damage reduction from the jewel.  After    |
| Spiriting with everyone and being hit my the wave you'll take about        |
| 100 damage each which is a drastic reduction from the damage you would     |
| normally take.  Simply have one character use a Healing Bloom next turn    |
| and you're once again ready for action.  With this setup it should not     |
| be too difficult at all to defeat Zeto just stay on the defensive. (000B5) |
|                                                                            |
| You're about to face the hardest boss in the game so far, and one that     |
| many many people have a lot of problems with so we'll be as thorough as    |
| possible.  First of all let's look at the boss' various attacks from the   |
| weakest to the strongest.  The weakest attack the boss has and the one     |
| you'll be jumping for joy when he uses is the Poison Gas which does about  |
| 200 damage to a single character and inflicts the Venom status.  Every     |
| other attack is brutal.  Next in line there's the physical attack that     |
| usually deals about 150, 150, 200 in a three hit combo for around 500      |
| damage total.  if you block any of the hits that's where you should        |
| consider yourself lucky.  Following this we have the Spore Gas which hits  |
| a single character for approximately 550 damage and inflicts the Rot       |
| status.  The boss will alternate between these three attacks through most  |
| of the battle.  When its HP starts to get less than about one third, a     |
| new attack appears.  The Stone Circle is toally unpredictable and hits     |
| your entire party for 550 damage each.  The only possible way to predict   |
| this attack is by kind of guessing that after he's been hurt a bit and you |
| let off a powerful attack, he'll likely use it on the next turn.           |
| Following this the Berserker will use Stone Circle every second turn, this |
| means that you have to use Spirit with everyone in your party every other  |
| turn on the same turn that the Stone Circle occurs.  Spirit will reduce    |
| the damage you take to between 150 and 200.  As for damaging the boss      |
| the primary source of damage will be Noa's combo I described in the        |
| strategy for Zeto, have her Spirit and then input down, up, up, up, left,  |
| down, right.  This will deal about 650 damage each time you successfully   |
| execute it, having a Target Chain on her helps out quite a bit.  Vahn and  |
| Gala should focus on healing and using their best combos or magic when     |
| healing is not necessary.  The boss inflicts two types of status effects,  |
| Venom and Rot.  Venom of course just deals damage every turn like any      |
| other poison.  You can tell is a character si affected by the Rot status,  |
| when you go to the command input some of the commands like arms, high,     |
| low etc will be blocked off by Rot usually keeping you from using your     |
| best special attacks.  That's why having those Forest Amulets equipped     |
| is so important, they prevent the Rot status.  Also, everyone's Vera       |
| spell should be at level five.  At level five Vera cures both Venom and    |
| Rot which will really help out for those character who are not protected   |
| against it.  Keep these things in mind when fighting the Berserker, and    |
| remember no matter what you do, tyou have to keep attacking! (000B6)       |
|                                                                            |
| He is just brutal and has been known in the past to literally force        |
| people to just give up on this game.  On the other end of the spectrum     |
| however, kajillions of people have defeated him as well, and you can too   |
| with the right preparation.  First of all there's no substitute for having |
| the best equipment you can buy back in Octam.  Second of all your party    |
| should each be at least level fifteen for this fight, it shouldn't really  |
| require much extra leveling.  Fifteen is the minimum, sixteen is strongly  |
| recommended... my party is level fourteen so we'll see how this goes, I'm  |
| sure that will suffice as well.  As for the boss, he is just brimming with |
| powerful attacks.  Bloody Horns will deal more than 600 damage to a single |
| character, but the damage will be halved if you use Spirit.  When not      |
| using Bloody Horns then Xain is probably using the Bull Charge.  Similar   |
| to Zeto's charge, this is an immediate indicator that you had sure as hell |
| better have everyone in your party use Spirit next turn.  Bull Charge is   |
| always followed by the Terio Punch.  To be honest I don't even know how    |
| much this deals at full capacity since I wasn't crazy enough NOT to use    |
| Spirit, but considering it does at least 400 damage to everyone in your    |
| party when you DO use Spirit, it'll pretty much wipe you out totally       |
| if you don't.  For dealing damage Noa will still be the star of the show   |
| here, she should still be using that combo I said to use for the Zeto and  |
| Berserker battles, by now it should be doing almost 1000 damage each use.  |
| (The combo is a Swan Driver followed by a Rushing Gale.)  For Vahn he      |
| should now be using the Fire Blow Hyper Art which really doesn't have      |
| anything to combo with, same with Gala, he should stick with the Neo       |
| Rising.  Now here's the idea, at least this is the way I like to play      |
| this battle.  Keep in mind if you use Spirit with all your characters      |
| and THEN Xain uses the Bull Charge that turn, you're just going to have to |
| use Spirit again on the next turn and that whole thing would be a waste.   |
| For that reason I find the following strategy works quite well.  Vahn      |
| should attack each turn with a Fire Blow, forget Spirit and stuff like     |
| that and don't worry too much about AP.  Noa should use the Rushing Gale   |
| each turn without Spirit, which should still deal more than 600 damage.    |
| Gala should be on healing duty using Vera and Orb as necessary.  Once      |
| Xain uses the Bull Charge everyone will need to Spirit on the next turn.   |
| After the Terio Punch occurs Noa should use the Swan Driver and Rushing    |
| Gale combo, Gala should use the Neo Rising and Vahn should cast Orb since  |
| he's faster tha Gala and his Spirit attack is just the same as his normal  |
| one anyway with just a couple extra commands on the front, but like I said |
| you can't combo the Fire Blow.  Take this idea and repeat it over and      |
| over, you'll likely find it's a good offensive tactic that works. (000B7)  |
|                                                                            |
| He has a number of extremely dangerous attacks.  It starts with the        |
| Hyper Attack which is just a series of powerful physical but blockable     |
| hits.  Beyond this he also has a large beam attack called Hyper Lightning  |
| which blasts a huge beam of energy at a single party member dealing over   |
| 800 damage if they haven't used Spirit that turn.  Beyond that is the      |
| Hyper Crush attack, this one hits every member of your party and is        |
| Songi's one big powerful attack.  It deals around 700 damage to everyone   |
| in your party at full potential.  The worst part about this attack is      |
| that it isn't always easy to predict.  There's almost no way to tell       |
| when Songi will use this attack so basically in order to stay alive you    |
| should have at least one person using Spirit every turn so that no matter  |
| what it will never wipe you out.  Obviously if given a choice, the person  |
| with less than 700 HP should be the one using Spirit.  Really the only     |
| good thning about the Hyper Crush is that while unpredictable, it is       |
| far more rare than attacks like the Stone Circle or Terio Punch which      |
| happened practically every other turn.  When it comes to attacking Songi,  |
| it's little surprise that Noa should still be using the same combo she     |
| has been using since Zeto.  Vahn needs to take advantage of the power of   |
| his Fire Blow, if your level is high enough you should be able to do a     |
| Tornado Flame followed by a Fire Blow after Spirit, it takes a lot of      |
| AP but it's worth it.  Gala really doesn't need any attacks, he should     |
| pretty much be on healing duty for the entire battle.  Since virtually     |
| all of Songi's attacks need to be healed immediately, using Orb will       |
| drain his MP far too quickly, a high level Vera can be just as effective   |
| as Orb in those single attack cases.  Also as one final note I would like  |
| to point out that Songi in fact has a hell of a lot of HP.  So much so     |
| that at times it seems like he's just never going to go down, but he will. |
| Lastly, the Hyper Crush is so rare that he only used it ONCE in the entire |
| battle for me, on the third turn, you make sure to Spirit up before the    |
| third turn and after that, perhaps you really don't have to worry. (000B8) |
|                                                                            |
| I would recommend starting this battle having two of your characters       |
| use Spirit and the third cast your new Kemaro spell, if you didn't learn   |
| it then that's too bad, if you did then that's 1800 damage right off the   |
| bat.  Gala and Vahn will probably have enough MP to cast it twice, Noa     |
| can't have learned it anyway since she wasn't in your party so be sure     |
| to cast it twice here and hey, if you have MP restoring items maybe        |
| you'll want to cast it even more.  Van Saryu usually uses his first turn   |
| to pound the face of one of your party members with his powerful physical  |
| attack.  Heal up if need be on the next turn.  Besides this physical       |
| attack, which while face poundingly brutal, doesn't exactly deal a huge    |
| abmount of damage, maybe 400 at the worst.  The great thing is he uses it  |
| far more than any other attack, although he only has one other attack.     |
| The Earthquake spell deals 7000 damage to all your party members, he uses  |
| it randomly and it's totally unpredictable, that's what's so dangerous     |
| about it.  You have to have people using Spirit each turn and be ready     |
| with Orb at all times.  By this point Vahn should finally be capable of    |
| dealing more damage than Noa with a back to back combo of Tornado Flame    |
| and fire blow.  Noa should be up to eight hits by now, use the exact same  |
| combo I described for previous fights, but add an extra up button attack   |
| to the start, it'll give her an extra arts to use.  After he's taken       |
| enough damage Van Saryu will use the Jugger Power ability which increases  |
| all his stats.  The bad part about this is that his attack goes up         |
| exponentially, the physical hit that dealt 400 damage before will now      |
| deal 800-900 damage to a single character and seriously risk knocking him  |
| out.  The increase in damage from the Earthquake isn't too bad, at least   |
| not when compared to the physical.  The good news is he only uses this     |
| when he has a mere few thousand hit points left so go on the offensive     |
| but always be ready to cast Orb just in cast the Earthquake comes. (000B9) |
|                                                                            |
| I find that fighting this is an exercise in patience, almost anyone can    |
| do it as long as their willing to keep track of the timing on turns, heal  |
| your party when you might rather attack and keep in your head at all times |
| the general turn order so you don't accidentally tell someone to heal when |
| the boss is going to get a turn before they do.  Start the battle off by   |
| using Spirit with everyone in your party.  Dohati always begins the battle |
| with his most powerful attack, Chaos Breath.  Chaos breath does about 900  |
| damage to everyone in your party and inflicts the Venom/Toxic status on    |
| them.  Fortunately with Spirit the attack only deals about 300 damage to   |
| everyone at most.  After this has occurred have either Vahn or Noa (Gala   |
| is too slow) cast Orb which should not only heal your party back to full   |
| health again but if it's at least level three it should heal your status   |
| as well.  From here Dohati will actually shrink in size immensely.  There  |
| will be approximately four turns in a row of him just using his normal     |
| physical attack which deals anywhere between 500 and 900 damage without    |
| Spirit to a single member of your party.  The worst thing you can do is    |
| underestimate this attack.  All it takes is a party member slightly        |
| weakened and with some bad luck they'll take the full force of this and    |
| end up being killed.  Not so good.  you need to heal every single turn     |
| even though you're only being hit with a physical attack.  Equipped with   |
| the War Soul Vahn should be Spiriting and using Tornado Flame and Fire     |
| Blow back to back every turn for more than 1000 damage, Noa should be      |
| using the same combo as always and if Gala learned Kemaro then you're      |
| really set for this battle.  Keep track of Dohati's size, along with the   |
| approzxmate four turns in between to predict when he's going to use        |
| the Chaos Breath next and be ready to Spirit with everyone. (000BA)        |
|                                                                            |
| You might have heard me say this before, but I'll say it again, this is    |
| hardest boss fight you've had to face in the game so far.  His attacks     |
| are just plain brutal, and that's the thing, he only has two of them.      |
| Now and then he'll hit you with a moderately powerful physical attack but  |
| just about any other time he'll hit you with the Astral Blade which deals  |
| 1200 damage to someone who hasn't used spirit, and 600-700 damage to       |
| someone who has.  Since you can't be using Spirit every single turn don't  |
| even attempt this battle until everyone in your party has a minimum of     |
| 1200 HP.  I defeated him reasonably at level 25 but I'm sure you could     |
| manage at level 23-24 if you were prepared well enough.  The most          |
| important factor in winning this battle is having everyone know the Spoon  |
| Seru magic.  Spoon is the best healing spell in the game, you'll find it's |
| quite common on the lower floors of this tower.  Get it for everyone,      |
| especially Gala.  Here's what I did to defeat the boss.  To do this        |
| effectively you'll probably need at least one MP (good) MP healing item.   |
| On the first turn Spirit with everyone except Gala, have him use Orb.      |
| Gaza will most likely attack either Vahn or Noa, and Orb will heal them.   |
| If he attacks Gala Orb will not fully restore his HP and next turn you'll  |
| need to have either Vahn or Noa use Spoon to make sure he gets back to     |
| full health.  On the next turn have both Vahn and Noa attack with their    |
| msot powerful arts while Gala uses SPOON this time.  Since no one Spirited |
| someone is likely going to be hit for 1200 damage, Spoon will heal that    |
| right up.  Vahn should simply use two Fire Blows in a row while Noa uses   |
| whatever works for you, I like comboing the Rushing Gale myself.  Continue |
| with this pattern all thorugh the battle, compensating in case Gala gets   |
| hit on a turn when everyone else uses Spirit.  His MP will drain fast so   |
| if the boss still isn't dead by the time it runs out, you'll have to give  |
| Vahn or Noa one turn to use a healing item on Gala to heal his MP. (000BB) |
|                                                                            |
| A second boss fight against him awaits you at the bottom of the Sol        |
| Tower, and he's not going to hold back this time.  He's been fitted with a |
| new suit of armour, and along with it, some new attacks.  One attack he    |
| seems quite fond of using is the Astral wave.  WITHOUT using Spirit it     |
| seems this attack can't really deal more than 800-900 damage, it's weaker  |
| than his Astral Slash was.  Don't try and think "why" just enjoy the fact  |
| that it is.  At least fir the beginning of the battle I would use the same |
| strategy as the one you (should have) used against the first Gaza.  Have   |
| Noa and Vahn alternate between Spirit and combos while Gala alternates     |
| between Orb and Spoon each turn.  If you have the Kemaro spell maybe you   |
| might want to encorporate that in there somewhere.  Unlike the original    |
| Gaza, this one has a group attack that does approximately 1000 damage to   |
| everyone.  There's only one thing to do after something like this, SPOON!  |
| The Tick would be proud.  Cast Spoon to make up for all the damage from    |
| that damn Neo Star Slash, if Gala's using it practically every turn then   |
| you'll most likely recover from it anyway.  Gaza is a difficult enemy but  |
| to be honest, I think he was more difficult before he got that Sim Seru.   |
| As long as you keep your party's HP in the thousands, you'll win. (000BC)  |
|                                                                            |
| You may have heard this before... yeah... once again you're facing off     |
| against the hardest boss(es) you've faced so far.  Each of your party      |
| members must take on one member of the family at a time.  If you die on    |
| any of them it's game over.  Fortunately Gala's enemy is pretty much       |
| the hardest of the bunch (they're all hard) and he comes first so at least |
| dying will minimize your backtracking in terms of boss fights.  What I     |
| like to do may sound weird, but I like to give Gala kind of a              |
| disadvantage.  What I mean by that, is I like to equip some of the better  |
| accessories like the Life Grail on Noa or Vahn or something, not that you  |
| want Gala to lose, but since he comes first, as long as you can get        |
| through that fight right away, it means you will have it much easier and   |
| a much better chance of getting through all three.  I recommend the        |
| following setup for Gala: you can defeat Che Delilas with Gala at level    |
| 26, the best equipment you can buy at this point (still Sol Tower I        |
| believe) and the following accessories: Magic Grail, Life Ring and         |
| Warrior Icon.  The Magic Grail is needed because Gala needs to heal        |
| himself far more frequently than anyone else, with this you can pretty     |
| much summon Spoon every other turn and never run out of MP.  The Life      |
| Ring is needed because you should have a minimum of 1700 HP coming into    |
| this battle.  If you level up a lot, then substitute it for something      |
| better if you want.  The Warrior Icon is an absolutely amazing accesory    |
| for this fight.  It's random so you can't rely on it, but for the turns    |
| in which you actually do attack, there's a chance you will interrupt the   |
| boss' attack with yours, and you won't get hit at all that turn.  Gala     |
| is definitely who you will want this on.  Now for the battle iself.        |
| Assuming yoursetup is similar to mine, start the battle with the           |
| following: Orb first turn (Che Delilas moves first, you heal all damage    |
| he deals and lose no MP because of Magic Grail.)  Second turn, Orb again   |
| same deal.  Trust me.  Third turn you must use Spirit, every three turns   |
| like clockwork Che Delilas uses his Megaton Press.  You MUST use Spirit    |
| before this to reduce most of the damage.  After this input a combo for    |
| Gala.  With seven slots the best possible combination is as follows:       |
| Lightning Storm comboed with Electro Thrash, seven is enough to do both    |
| of them.  After this cast Spoon on the next turn.  Now if you're healed    |
| to FULL health after Spoon, then use Spirit and repeat the process after   |
| Megaton Hammer.  If you're not, then you'll have to substitue next turn's  |
| attack with Spoon.  This process is VERY slow but it WILL keep you alive,  |
| patience is very important.  There's also an element of luck, he gets      |
| three hits per turn at random.  One of them does about 300 damage, another |
| one does like 90.  If he uses three of the 300 damage ones, it's just      |
| bad luck and you'll have to skip attacking to use Spoon.  (000BD)          |
|                                                                            |
| This one shouldn't be as difficult as the fight against Che.  I gave       |
| Noa the Life Grail in this case, along with the Guardian Chain (I think    |
| that's what it's called, the one that makes it so neither you nor your     |
| enemy can block attacks) and I forget what the last thing was.  When       |
| the battle begins, just use Vera or Spirit or something each turn, you     |
| won't be getting into the real sprategy until turn three.  On the third    |
| turn you should have full or almost full HP when you uuse Spirit, just     |
| like Che Delilas, Lu Delilas will use her ultimate attack every three      |
| turns and you have to use Spirit to weaken it.  After this let loose       |
| with your most powerful attack.  If your Noa is anything like mine, she    |
| has the full nine slots when she uses Spirit.  This will allow her to      |
| use Miracle Arts, the ultimate attack.  To use it you need 100 AP and      |
| nine slots.  The combination for Noa is left, up, right, down, up, left,   |
| up, down, right.  This should be about the most powerful attack you        |
| can use.  Repeat this pattern over and over again and you'll win. (000BE)  |
|                                                                            |
| Gi Dililas I personally find to be the easiest of the three, but perhaps   |
| it will depend on what you have equipped on Vahn.  I had absolutely        |
| nothing defensive on him at all and it still wasn't too bad, I think the   |
| most important thing to note for this strategy is that Vahn is ALWAYS      |
| faster than Gi and will always get the first turn.  If you don't this      |
| may not work.  As usual start the battle BS-ing your way through the first |
| could of turns then use Spirit on the third turn to survive his special    |
| attack.  After that use either Orb, Spoon, or a Healing Berry to get       |
| back up to full life.  On the next turn use your most powerful attack,     |
| with eight slots for me it was two back-to-back Fire Blows.  Vahn's        |
| accessories were the Mettle Gem, War Soul and Power Ring so you can        |
| imagine how strong he was, two Fire Blows did nearly 2000 damage.          |
| Defeat Gi Dililas and you'll finally have a chance to save! (000BF)        |
|                                                                            |
| Technically this boss has "attacks" but they're so weak and crappy         |
| you probably won't have to heal at all.  In fact even if you do need to    |
| heal you probably shouldn't, you're on a time limit!  You have four        |
| turns to defeat Koru before it explodes and kills you, on the fourth       |
| turn it will explode and kill you, but anyone in your party who moves      |
| faster than Koru will still be able to attack during that turn.  It        |
| shows Koru's HP as 100 in the battle screen, it will go down by 10 points  |
| for every 2000 damage you deal or so, meaning in total Koru has about      |
| 20,000 hit points.  To be honest your success in this battle will depend   |
| greatly on who has the Kemaro spell.  You don't have time to be using      |
| Spirit over and over so you need to be able to deal massive damage every   |
| single turn.  I only had one person with Kemaro (Vahn) so what I did       |
| was equip him with the Magic Grail, Spirit Gem (25% less MP cost) and      |
| Wisdom Ring.  With that he can pretty much cast it every turn.  For        |
| Gala I equipped the Mettle Gem, War Soul and Power Ring.  Without using    |
| Spirit he would just use his new Hyper Art Explosive Fist you learn from   |
| the Thunder Book III you just got from the previous boss battle.  Noa      |
| didn't have much, I had her use Spirit on the first turn then a Miracle    |
| Arts attack, after that she can do whatever.  If she has Kemaro as well,   |
| then all the better.  If you just can't do it... there's always the Point  |
| Card.  Note however if you use the Point Card here, it's a waste. (000BG)  |
|                                                                            |
| She is a pretty reasonable boss, it shouldn't be as difficult              |
| as the battle against the Delilas family if you're properly prepared.  On  |
| the first turn have everyone attack normally or use magic or something     |
| like that.  Zora will probably use a normal physical attack.  On the       |
| second turn she almost always uses her special attack, Darkness Typhoon.   |
| This is an attack that hits your entire party for abou 1200 damage, and    |
| can be reduced to about 400 if you use Spirit.  I would highly recommend   |
| making Noa the healer for this battle, as opposed to Gala, solely because  |
| you want a healer who can definietely move before Zora.  Equip Noa with    |
| the Wisdom Ring, Magic Grail, and something else.  Vahn and Gala should    |
| be equipped with accessories to increase their physical power.  There's a  |
| good chance Vahn will have nine slots at this point, if he does then you   |
| can use his Miracle Arts.  Vahn's Miracle Art is right, down, left, up,    |
| left, up, right, down, left.  For Gala with eight slots I recommend the    |
| following, Explosive Fist comboed with the Neo Rising, it worls with       |
| eight slots.  Soon enough Zora will reveal her one other special attack,   |
| it's called Glare and it automatically turns a single character to         |
| Stone with about 100% accuracy.  For this reason your party MUST be        |
| equipped with Wonder Amulets.  If you've followed the guide you will have  |
| two at this point.  If the character not wearing a Wonder Amulet gets      |
| turned to Stone, simply use Medicine to heal them.  Before too long        |
| with enough power behind your attacks, Zora will eventually fall. (000BH)  |
|                                                                            |
| This boss is extremely easy, at least as far as I can tell.  I wans't      |
| at any kind of special level or anything.  Here's the way it works.        |
| The boss alternates between two attacks, and one isn't even an attack.     |
| Rogue will waste one turn using Element Change which changes its attack    |
| element then on the next turn it will let loose a powerful elemental       |
| attack.  All you have to do is attack with all your characters on the      |
| first turn of battle, then Spirit with everyone next turn to weather       |
| the hit.  It deals nearly 900 damage to everyone WITH Spirit so don't get  |
| caught not using it... ever.  For accessories I had Noa equipped with the  |
| Rainbow Jewel since it reduces elemental damage and Noa has the least      |
| amount of HP.  What I did was equip Vahn with the Mettle Gem so he could   |
| used his Miracle Arts and Gala had a very powerful Kemaro spell.  Noa was  |
| the healer so it went one turn of Spirit which the boss attacked, then     |
| one turn of Vahn's Craze, Spoon and Kemaro.  Repeat until dead. (000BI)    |
|                                                                            |
| It seemed he has changed his image over the years.  He's definietely       |
| not going to be a pushover that's for sure, he's got a few tricks up       |
| his sleeve.  Even his simple physical attack is quite nasty, it just       |
| doesn't seem to end and deals over 1400 damage to a single character.  His |
| main attack however is the Shadow Break, an attack that hits your entire   |
| party for about 1100 damage without Spirit.  The most dangerous part       |
| about this attack is that it is very difficult to predict.  Jette's        |
| special ability is indeed, pretty special.  He has the ability to          |
| clone himself and create an exact copy.  As far as I know there is no      |
| way to tell the difference between the two clones so here's what you       |
| do.  Play defensively, using Spirit and healing your party.  When the      |
| clone attack you will now it, the clone cannot use Shadow Break and its    |
| physical attack deals damage in the single digits.  Note the position      |
| of the clone on the battlefield, the easiest way to do this is to see      |
| who the clone is standing closest to, then aim for the other one, that     |
| is the real Jette.  As long as he doesn't split again, anyone who targeted |
| the real Jette on a previous turn will still target him by default the     |
| next turn.  With this strategy you should be able to beat him. (000BJ)     |
|                                                                            |
| He begins the battle by using something called Mystic Shield, what this    |
| does basically is defend automatically against all damage done from normal |
| attacks.  It does not however block art skills, so the more of those       |
| you can use the better.  Of course given that Miracle Arts are nothing     |
| but chains of art skills over and over, that's definetly your best bet.    |
| For me, Vah's Miracle art was doing over 4500 damage even with that        |
| shield in place, his defense against damage is surprisingly low.  Cort     |
| has more than just a shield of course, the Guily Cross will deal moderate  |
| damage to a single member of your party while the much more powerful       |
| Mystic Circle will do more than 1000.  Cort's most powerful attack is the  |
| ability to summon Juggernaut to attack the party, without Spirit the       |
| damage from this attack can approach 2000!  Not a pretty sight.  You'll    |
| have to be pretty offensive with the Miracles, have Gala healing every     |
| turn whether you need it or not, more than likely Cort will use an attack  |
| that needs to be healed anyway that turn (although in this battle for      |
| me, Gala was faster than Cort, which is pretty damn rare at this point.    |
| When Cort's shield is broken you absolutely MUST use Spirit with everyone  |
| regardless of HP next turn, he will almost certainly use Evil Seru Magic   |
| (Juggernaut) and if you don't use Spirit, you're dead.  You can heal the   |
| next turn.  From now until the end of the battle, he'll use it just        | 
| randomly, so always make sure you party's HP is above 2000. (000BK)        |
|                                                                            |
| When it comes to main bosses in this game, it doesn't get much more        |
| difficult than this.  He is a beast.  Imagine a boss whose physical        |
| attack is the most dangerous one he has, it may sound pathetic, but when   |
| that physical attack is capable of dealing over 3600 damage to a single    |
| character, the humour is somewhat lost.  It's true however, any character  |
| who does not use Spirit and is hit by Songi's attack is almost certain     |
| to die unless they can get some lucky blocks in.  Songi's other attack,    |
| the Chaos Flare or whatever it's called, deals a mere 1500 damage to       |
| one character without Spirit, you'll be jumping for joy when he uses that  |
| instead.  The weird thing is though, the more you damage Songi, it seems   |
| the less he is able to combo his attacks together.  For example, at the    |
| beginning his physical attack will hit you six times, and as the battle    |
| goes he'll start hitting you four times, then down to maybe twice, or even |
| once.  It doesn't stay like that though, he might get back up there again  |
| but know that this super dangerous attack does seem to get weaker as the   |
| battle goes on.  As always the best tactic is to use Spirit and Miracle    |
| Arts.  Like I said, this boss is probably MORE difficult than the boss     |
| of the game, so if you've been saving your Point Card, use it now!  Also   |
| you should have the Light Talisman equipped on someone, the Horn spell     |
| will be extremely handy, it revives dead party members and heals everyone  |
| up to 100% health.  Have Gala using Spoon almost every turn while Noa      |
| and Vahn cycle between arts and Spirit.  Good luck with this one. (000BL)  |
|                                                                            |
| With all these equipment upgrades you probably won't find this boss as     |
| difficult as Songi, but he does provide an adequate challenge for a        |
| boss of the game.  This boss takes you back to the days of Zeto and        |
| Xain, who indicated the coming a super powerful attack with a charge up    |
| turn.  This makes it easy because you can simply use this to know when     |
| you need to Spirit with everyone.  You'll HAVE to Spirit with everyone     |
| since his Final Crisis does about 3000 damage to everyone if you don't.    |
| Besides this attack he has a physical attack about as strong as Songi's,   |
| perhaps a little weaker.  Another attack called Doomsday is powerful as    |
| well, but not nearly as powerful as the Final Crisis.  Have Horn ready     |
| to summon at all times, it sure works a lot better than a Phoenix.  Also   |
| go nuts with the Point Card, Wonder Elixirs, and basically anything in     |
| your inventory, this is the final boss, who needs all the items! (000BM)   |
