    SaGa Frontier Tier Flow Guide
    By JusticeZero
    This is a pretty quick little guide that is intended to help you get the most
    out of each battle rank as you go through the game.  For those who aren't very
    familiar with how SaGa Frontier's tier system works, here's a little
    explanation: enemies in SaGa Frontier increase in difficulty not by how far in
    the storyline you are, but by how many battles you have fought.  It's still
    sort of a mystery how this works exactly, but it seems to be a set number.  So
    there's only so much time to make use of each tier.  This flow list is designed
    to help you do that by taking the enemies with the highest chance of yielding
    an item or skill and directing you to get it from that enemy.  In that way, you
    have split up the amount you have to do in one tier and you save yourself the
    time of going for a rarity 4 item (rarity 4 is an enemy's rarest item / skill)
    when it's rarity 1 with another enemy (rarity 1 is that StunNeedle you always
    see the KillerBee drop).
    Class Flow
    Artifact (these can be found in Mu's Tomb small treasure chest if nowhere else)
    Male Mystic
    Female Mystic
    Each tier will be lined up like this.  You'll have it memorized in no time, and
    it's pretty obvious what class each enemy belongs too anyway.
    How this works: I am going to list skills and items.  If you have 5 monsters on
    your team (*coughRikicough*), there's no way you're going to get the full
    benefit from this anyway.  I have managed to follow this guide with Slime and
    Suzaku on Blue's file, though.  Basically, you want to absorb as many skills
    with your monsters and not spend forever on it.  If you try to get Supersonic
    from a Hedgehog, you're wasting your time.  I'm going to list the easiest place
    to get it, but if you have 5 monsters, don't expect them all to get every skill
    in here before time "runs out" (and by time running out, I mean before it's
    going to become a grind to get the skills you want).
    Also, it has come to my attention that you cannot miss any skills with your
    monsters; some will be ungodly hard to get at the end of the game, but if you
    can't make full use of this tier flow, you can always go back and get what you
    missed later.  If you see an item name, you'll want to get the item from that
    enemy, assuming you want that item.  I've listed all the items you need to get
    from drops, so if you're going for every item, I find it easiest to get the
    item there; if you don't want an item or a skill, skip it, of course, but
    skipping skills will cheat your monster out of Max HP.  Just make sure not to
    waste time absorbing skills that your monster has pre-absorbed; that
    information can all be found in Oulak's Monster FAQ, found at GameFAQs.
    Lastly, check the bottom of the guide; it has a miscellaneous section.  If
    you're actually using this as a guide, not just a reference to what tier and
    class an enemy is, and you want to get the most out of it, take heed to the
    miscellaneous section early on.  It has enemies that can only be fought in low
    tiers.  Since I don't know exactly what tiers and classes each enemy in that
    list appears with yet, I don't have that information in there; maybe, with
    time, I will figure all that out and add it to this guide.  For right now, I
    highly suggest going to the sewers near Dr. Nusakan's office in Koorong and
    fighting a D-Tractor (it appears with rank one humans).  It is the only enemy
    in the game that drops the Bumper.  Of course, if you don't care about having
    every item, then just forget it.  It's worthless as far as an equip goes.

    Tier 8
    Butch               Heal, MadAttack*, Spoil, Stinger
    Shrieker            TripGas
    Basilisk            StoneGaze, CelestialLeather

    Skylab              Evasion Laser, MecSonata, SelfRepair
    *I only suggest absorbing MadAttack from Butch if you are on T260G's file,
    because T2 can't get into TimeLord's Region (as far as I know he can't).
    Everybody else would have more luck absorbing this from a Minotaur, who yields
    it 100%.  Not like rarity 2 is horribly hard to absorb, but 100% is better.
    Tier 9
    Chimera             GasFlame, Trample
    CrystalTree         MagneticStorm
    Kraken              Feeler, Maelstrom

    Platyhooks          BoomerangHook
    DevilSquid          Ink, Thunderbolt, OgreGlove
    Flamefolk           HeatSmash, Ignis, PowerBelt
    Waterfolk           BlueElf
    Sonicbat            GliderSpike, PoisonGrip, Supersonic
    Straysheep          BeastLeather, Catsocks
    Rockbaboon          DoubleAxe
    FireCrystal         SolGrail
    RedDragon           FlameBlast
    BlackDragon         GriffithScratch, StoneGas, Protector
    Abyssbat            LightRifle
    Minotaur            MadAttack
    Darkfairy           LightBall, PoisonMist
    D-Tractor           Bumper
    EarthDragon*        HyperionBazooka OR SprigganSuit
    Wormbrood           Beetlejuice, ElfShot
    T-Walker            Magnify, FlashBomb
    With the EarthDragon, pick your favorite, you only get to fight him once.  I
    recommend the SprigganSuit though.  On T260G's file, you can get a
    HyperionBazooka in one of his dungeons, so I would definitely pick the
    SprigganSuit there.
    Well, it looks to be the end here.....  Again, thanks to GameFAQs and the guys
    on its SaGa Frontier message board.
