This is just an item/arts list, so don't mail me with any questions 
concerning the game itself, please. Such letters will be ignored. 

Anyway, this is a fairly complete item/arts list. Why'd I make this list?
As with all my item lists, I made this one pretty much just for fun, in
hopes that it'd help others. (As well as myself. ^_^)  

I'm really sorry that I can't put as much time into this list as I have with
some of my previous ones (such as the one for the original SaGa Frontier),
but I just don't have as much free time as I used to. Most of the items I 
used GameShark to obtain the stats of are randomly dropped by specific 
enemies. Since I don't have a guide book or any other way of knowing which 
enemies drop which items, trying to obtain these normally would probably 
prove to be futile, especially given my unparalleled bad luck at winning 
such items. I apologize for this, but it really can't be helped.

I shouldn't need to justify my actions, but I will anyhow. I like my item 
lists to be complete. That includes items not available normally, and items
I haven't yet found. The reason I use the [GS] tag is so I don't have people
mailing me about items not available normally. Forgive me for causing a bit
of confusion, but I'm a perfectionist when it comes to item/spell lists.
Also note that I never once said that the items I found with GameShark don't
exist. I merely stated that I, myself, for reasons explained above, haven't 
found them yet. If you've found such an item normally, please let me know. 

That's all. Sorry for making such a lengthy explanation, but I don't 
appreciate being called a 'cheater'. I'm not.

 1. Revision History

V5.0 - Not a particularly big update.
     - Got some of the missing shop lists for Rich, but I'm still missing
     - Added a few alternate locations where items can be won. (Uroborus and
       Pirate Bandana.)
     - Various minor corrections. Typos fixed, etc.

V4.5 - Added a list of Battle Roles. Guess that's about everything I *can*
     - Got the rest of the items in the Custom Order shops.
     - Dunno why, but version 4.0 never got put up on GameFAQs. See that 
       list for the rest of the stuff that's new since version 3.0.

V4.0 - Wow, that was fast. Already got the location of the Dominant Gloves,
       the location of the second Lake Robe, and info about winning extra
       Water Mirrors and Crystal Wings.
     - Thanks to the same person, I also know now how to get Custom Weapons
       to appear in the shops at Gruegel and Vogelang. That's been added.
     - Got the location of the Golden Axe, thanks to...someone else. ;P
     - Also added a shop list. Let's see... All rare items have been 
       covered, and all common items have been covered. I guess that covers
       eveything. :)   Oh, yeah. I'm missing the lists of some of the shops
       in Rich's quest, and some of the Custom Items. Anyone care to help?
     - Oh, yeah. After comparing letters for about five minutes, I noticed
       that "Carithel" is actually "Carlthel". That's been fixed, too.
     - Things I still need:
       Locations of the Bone Armor, Fire-Beast Skin, and Mystic Veil.
       Confirmation of whether or not Rock Rhinos drop Rock-Beast Tags.
       The effect (if any) of the Egg (the GS item), and Gem Particles.
       More places where the landform 'items' are used. Especially Puddle.
       Additional locations of where items can be won.
       The shop lists for Gruegel, Vogelang, and Laubholz in Rich's Quest.
       I'd also like a confirmation of whether or not the shops in the 
        listed towns change if your leader is Gustave, Eleanor, Johan, or 
        Nebelstern. If no one can get this, I'll do it later.

V3.0 - Started a list of where some rare items can be found. It's quite
       incomplete, so feel free to submit anything you may have found.
     - Confirmed a few more items.
     - Added Wood Sword and Fossil Dagger. Why and how I missed them, I 
       don't know. Why didn't anyone tell me I was missing them?! =P
     - Fixed a few mistakes (like I had "Stone" listed twice in the "Arts
       Key", and didn't have "Tone" listed), and added another note to the
       Spell Arts. Nothing really major.

v2.0 - Thanks to a contribution, the locations of several items have been
     - Also, thanks to the same contribution, I've learned that Hymnal *can*
       be learned/used in duels. That's been fixed.
     - I'd like to include a list of hard-to-find items here, as well. If
       someone could contribute a list, either partial or complete, of which
       items are dropped by which enemies, I'd appreciate it.

v1.0 - First version. 
     - Well, I was gonna write a full-version FAQ, but I decided not to...
       My writing style just wouldn't allow for the huge story sequences...
     - Any help in locating the items I found with GS would be gladly
       accepted. ;)

 2. Forward Notes
Key: Tr - Tree, Wt - Water, St - Stone, Fl - Flame, Tn - Tone, Bt - Beast
(These abbreviations are used only when an item has more than one anima.)    

Notes for the item lists: 
- Steel isn't a real anima type. "Steel" in the Anima section indicates 
  that an item is made of steel. A line of dashes means the item has no 
  known anima.
- You may find items with more uses than listed. The "Uses" catagory simply
  indicates the maximum number of uses an item can have after being 
  repaired at a shop. (At Westia, Vogelang, etc.)
- Shields aren't really weapons. They're equipped in the hand, so I 
  included them there.
- A "--" in the uses column means the item has infinite uses.
- A '[B]' tag in the "Other" section means the item has a special effect in 
  battle, and not the usual basic art or anima weapon skill. A '[GS]' tag 
  means the I got the item's stats via GameShark, but I haven't yet 
  confirmed its existance/location in the actual game yet. A '[GGD]' tag
  means the item can only be optained using the Pocketstation mini-game "Go!
  Go! Digger".
- "SPR" isn't "Spirit"; it's a name I made up for "SP Regeneration".
- For armor and the like, there're two numbers in the "Enh" (SP Enhance)
  section. The one on the left is the "SP Enhance" number in the game's
  description of the item. The one on the right is its SPR (see above) 
  increase. A * next to it, however, means it *lowers* SPR by that much.
- Likewise, "SP" (for all item types) is how much it increases (or 
  decreases) your max SP by.

With that out of the way... Here's the lists.

 3. Weapons

Galatyn            34*  -----    --     3   SPR +1, Fake Gus's; Can't Remove
Beowulf            38   Beast    --    10   Quell, SPR +1

CinderforgeSword   70   Steel    --   -50   SPR -3
Seven-Star Blade   77   -----     7     5   [B][GGD]

*Galatyn is really screwed up. At first glance, it appears to be steel, but
it doesn't seem to be once you're using it. It doesn't have an anima, and 
has the appearance of a 'Beast' Sword in battle. If you get it through GS, 
it doesn't mention attack power, it says "Armor Def 10, SP Enhance 5". The 
attack power I have listed is a rough estimate based on damage done when 
compared to other swords.

 7. Spell Arts

- A '*' before the spell's combo means it can't be used/learned in duels.
- I don't think you can learn Needle Burst normally. To use it, equip a 
  Demongrass Fang, and it'll be listed under its effects in battle.
- You can't learn Deadly Snake normally. To use it, equip a Scorpion Tail,
  and, like Needle Burst, it will be listed under its effects in battle.

 8. Miscellaneous Arts

- A '*' next to the weapon in the "Anima Weapons" section means I haven't 
  yet found a weapon that is able to use this spell.
- To use the Punch anima attacks, simply equip no weapons, and equip tools 
  of that anima. I'm pretty sure that this is the correct way, but if I'm
  wrong, please let me know.

 9. Item Magic
Well, I'm sure we've all played games where using items in battle can 
produce a special effect. Well, SaGa Frontier 2 has such items, but they 
work a bit differently. If you equip one of these items, the listed spell 
will appear below its name in battle. For tools/quells, this replaces the
built-in basic arts. These spells still cost SP for some reason, but such
items are still useful for the fact that they save a slot for another spell.
In addition, some such spells are unique, and can't be used any other way,
such as Comet Fall, Megabolt, Deadly Snake, Needle Burst, and Press.

Kris Knife         Comet Fall
Eternity Staff     Megabolt
Stardust           Megabolt
Seven-Star Blade   Megabolt
Birch Ring         Life Water
Blood Star         Sonic Poison
Night Medallion    Regenerate
Beast Rune         Regenerate
Amber Maleate      Woodstock
Fire Flake         Recovery Breath
Green Glass        Recovery Breath
Demongrass Fang    Needle Burst
Scorpion Tail      Deadly Snake
Pop Shoes          Press

 10. Battle Roles
Well, I figure I may as well include these anyhow, since the effects of some
of them are kinda confusing. Anyhow, with the exception of Solo Action, 
roles can only be given to one character at a time. 

- The "Character" column is who starts with the role.
- I'm not sure if these effects are 100% correct, but this is what I've 
  basically determined they do by their descriptions, and what I've seen in
- I don't know exactly who starts with the "Leader" role. It appears after
  the Battle of Buckethill, so I guess it's either Gustave's role there, or
  a Steel Soldier's role.

              Character      Effect

Getaway       Roberto        Easier to negociate truce with stronger enemies
Diplomat      Greta          Easier to negociate truce with friendly enemies 

 11. Shop List 
This is a list of all the shops in the game. Actually, it's more of a town
guide, since it lists what's in every town. Here's the lowdown of what all
the features are:

* Inn - An inn. You can always stay at these for free, and it restores HP,
  SP, WP, and LP for your entire team.

* Tool Repair - You can repair tools here. The prices are usually way too
  high, however, and it's probably better to just buy a new copy of the item
  you want if possible.

* Chip Exchange - You can convert chips to money here. 50Cr for 10 Chips,
  550Cr for 100 Chips, and 3000Cr for 500 chips. 

* Item-to-Chips - You can convert any non-Steel/Quell items to chips here.
  Very useful.

* Reclaim Items - Another useful feature. This lets you take the equipment
  of anyone who's been on your team at least once. Even if the character is
  dead as a result of the story, you can still take his/her equipment!

* Tool Shop/Shopping Area - These shops are mostly for the purchase of 
  tools. Occationally, armor and weapons can be bought here, too.

* Weapon Shop - Like tool shops, except they specialize mainly in weapons 
  and armor.

* Steel Shop/Blacksmith - Shops that specialize in Steel equipment. 
  Otherwise, they're the same as Weapon Shops.

* Custom Order - Specialty shops where you can purchase powerful tools and
  weapons in exchange for chips and crowns. However, you have to have to 
  meet certain requirements before you can buy anything here...

* Peddler - A specialty shop in Hahn Nova. The guy asks if you wanna buy 
  something from him, and if you do, you'll get a random item. The stuff 
  here isn't very good, though, but it's cheap. ^_^

 12. Items not found in Shops
This is a list of rare or hard to find items. Essentially, ones not found in
any shops. I've also included all Quells here for your convenience. :)

If there're any items I missed, if any of the locations I have here are 
wrong, or you know where to find any of the items I haven't, please let me 


--- Swords ---

- Kris Knife - 
Scenario: Wil's Departure, Anima Faith Fiasco
This is a pretty weak weapon, but this list covers all Quells regardless.
From the "South Entrance" of Hahn Ruins, climb down the stairs, and enter 
the door on the lower right. It's in the chest on the shelf.

- Screamer -
Scenario: None (Ginny's Adventure)
Primiera starts with one of these. If anyone knows a way to get more, please
let me know.

- Gustave's Sword -
Scenario: Battle of Buckethill, Wil vs. Egg, Battle of South Moundtop
There're actually three of these, according to the game. One has 29 attack
power, and is only used in the Battle of Buckethill. The second one has 53
attack power, and is used by Gustave when he joins during Wil vs. Egg. 
Finally, Gustaf gets a third one later on in Ginny's quest. Actually, the 
one Gustaf gets is the same as the one Gustave gets in Wil vs. Egg, except 
it has an extra line in its description. So the game acts like there's three
of these. Whatever. ^_^

- Flame Sword -
Scenario: None (Ginny's Adventure)
Gustaf starts with this, and it can't be unequipped.

- Firebrand -
Scenario: Battle of South Moundtop
This is just Gustaf's Flame Sword, renamed. They start calling it by its
real name, Firebrand, after Battle of South Moundtop. No, you still can't 
unequip it. ^_^

- Beowulf -
Scenario: To Gustave's Stronghold
In the Old Battleground just outside of Hahn Nova, take the right path when
you reach the crossroads, and keep going until you come to a big tree. 
Examine it, and Ginny will point out that she detects an anima that doesn't
seem to belong to a tree. Choose to investigate this strange anima, and 
you'll be attacked by a Diety and three Crimes. Win the battle (it shouldn't
be that hard), and you'll get the Beowulf.

- Carlthel -
Scenario: None (Gruegel/Vogelang)
Bought at the "Custom Order" shop. In order for these items to show up, you
need a fair amount of crowns and chips (I'd say about 2000 Chips and 5000 
Crowns. Might need more or less.), and someone who's at (at least) level 25 
in the type and the anima of the weapon. Since this is a Stone Sword, you 
need to have someone with a Sword level of at least 25, and a Stone level of
at least 25. I don't believe this needs to be the same character, just at 
least one person with levels that high.

- Valleria Heart -
Scenario: To Gustave's Stronghold
Won randomly from Knight Pegs/Queen Pegs. (They always show up together, so
I'm not sure which drops it; I've gotten two different letters about it.)
They're really rare. When fighting the boar-type monsters, occationally 
you'll end up fighting three Knight Pegs and the Peg Queen. I've only seen
this twice out of about 50 battles, though. Expect a long wait if you're 
trying to get this. ^_^

- CinderforgeSword -
Scenario: None (Laubholz, anytime after finishing "Tycoon Wil")
In one of the upper floors of the Tower of Laubholz, there's a room with 
several doors; one of which is an iron gate. Occationally, you'll see a 
skeleton floating around the room. It's the Lich, an optional super-boss.
It's difficult to do, and it takes a while, but if you win the battle, 
you'll get the Cinderforge Sword. I'm not sure if you have to complete the
Elven Lyre sub-quest in order to get the Lich to appear, but if it doesn't
show up at first, complete the quest, then try again.

- Seven-Star Blade -
Scenario: None (Go! Go! Digger)
Unfortunately, you can only get this via the Pocketstation mini-game "Go! 
Go! Digger". And since Pocketstations aren't available for sale outside 
Japan, it's pretty much impossible to get this sword without GameShark. 
(Well, I suppose you can always import a Pocketstation, but I've no 
guarantee it'd work with an American PSX...)

--- Spears ---

- Ice Lance -
Scenario: Beyond Grand Valley
Actually, I think you need to get this to continue. You get it by examining
the shiny spot after defeating the Volcanoid.

- Beast Lance -
Scenario: Tycoon Wil
This is in the Ice Megalith, but it's *really* well hidden, and explaining
how to get it isn't easy... After passing through the teleporter maze (with 
the slimes), you'll end up in a small room where there's a far-away view.
Here, walk up to the machine on the right, and you'll be sucked into a 
strange room with more teleporter tiles. I don't think there's any pattern
here, so just keep teleporting around until you end up on the island with 
the flashing green portal in the center. Wait until the portal is at it's 
largest size, then touch it. You *should* end up in a treasure room where 
you'll find the Beast Lance. (If you messed up, you'll end up back in the 
room with the two machines, and will have to start over.)  If you touch the
left machine in the previous room, you'll also be warped to a similar
teleporter maze. Do the same thing here to get a Hyper Water. (Note: The
method I have here seemed to work for me, but it might not be the correct 
way to get these items. If I'm wrong, please let me know the correct way.)

- Babrashka -
Scenario: None (Gruegel/Vogelang)
Bought at the "Custom Order" shop. Since this is a Tree Spear, you need to
have someone with a Spear level of at least 25, and a Tree level of at least

- Uroborus -
Scenario: To Gustave's Stronghold (Weissland)
Won rarely from the Megalith Beast and Fire Lord Sargon. O_o  Good luck...
Note that you'll only fight Sargon at the Old Battleground if you also got 
the Beowulf there. And yes, only in *this* battle do you have a chance of
getting Uroborus. When you fight Sargon in the Last Megalith, he always 
drops the Nova Heart. 

--- Staffs ---

- Sandwurm Staff -
Scenario: At the Mines (Mines Collapsed)
If you managed to save all the trapped miners when you return to Svendorf
Mines the second time, one of them gives you this. You can also buy these at
Vogelang on Ginny's quest, but they're expensive.

- Eternity Staff -
Scenario: Deadly Battle with the Egg
In a treasure chest near the end of the Insect Megalith. Kinda hard to miss 

- Limstokes -
Scenario: None (Gruegel/Vogelang)
Bought at the "Custom Order" shop. Since this is a Water Staff, you need to 
have someone with a Staff level of at least 25, and a Water level of at 
least 25. 

- Granite Staff -
Scenario: Into the Forest, To the Fossil Caves, Misty's Plot
Won rarely from Rock Rhinos. The only normal tool in the game (other than 
the non-removable Cielmerlion) that doesn't break.

--- Axes ---

- Golden Axe -
Scenario: To Gustave's Stronghold, The Last Megalith
As with most hard to find items, you randomly win this one after battle. 
Hopper Dynasty, the unnecessarily strong frog, drops it. This is a steel
item, but strangely, it doesn't resist anima. It won't break, either.
Unfortunately, it's rather weak in comparison to other axes...

- Obsidian Axe -
Scenario: Ginny's Adventure
Well, I've won one of these from some enemy, but I forgot what. You can get
one of these without fighting, though, by pulling on the vines in the lower
levels of the Giant Worm Caves.

- Hawk Wind -
Scenario: None (Gruegel/Vogelang)
Bought at the "Custom Order" shop. Since this is a Beast Axe, you need to
have someone with an Axe level of at least 25, and a Beast level of at least

--- Bows ---

- Elven Lyre -
Scenario: None (Laubholz, anytime after finishing "Tycoon Wil")
There's a rather complex sub-quest involved in getting this... It's in 
Laubholz Tower.

- Wysteria Bow -
Scenario: Into the Forest
After reaching the ancient tower, climb to the second floor, and exit 
through the broken wall in the back. Cross the huge tree limb, and take the
chest at the end, which contains the Wysteria Bow. Watch out, though, you 
get attacked afterwards.

- Wild Rose -
Scenario: To Gustave's Stronghold
This is in the treasure cave on the Old Battleground outside Hahn Nova. From
where you start, just head left and go in the cave, where this and a bunch
of other stuff is hidden. You can buy these at Laubholz on Ginny's quest, as
well, but they're somewhat expensive.

- Beast Dancer -
Scenario: None (Gruegel/Vogelang)
Bought at the "Custom Order" shop. Since this is a Beast Bow, you need to 
have someone with a Bow level of at least 25, and a Beast level of at least 

--- Shields ---

- House Guard -
Scenario: Many
Won randomly from Housekeepers. Actually, you can *buy* these in Westia 
during Rich's quest. ^_^

- Water Mirror -
Scenario: Showdown! Alexei, Edelritter (Johan the Assassin)
Ventarbre starts with this. He joins you after completing "Johan the 
Assassin", but unless you visit a town then, he's not playable. Take this 
from him via the woman in Westia or North Gate. You can also win extra Water
Mirrors from beating the Griffins in the Rock Quarry. It's hard, and it 
takes a while, but it can be done. Still, it's probably not worth it.

- Glacier Shield -
Scenario: Tycoon Wil
Found in the Ice Megalith. It's in a 'chest' along the main path, so you
probably won't miss it.

- Lava Shield -
Scenario: To the Fossil Caves
In the main room (where all the rhinos, slugs, and passageways are), take
the third passage on the south wall, and examine the skeleton in the next
area. You'll get this shield.

--- Armor ---

Scenario: None
I have no idea what this is, but I doubt you can get it normally. Maybe it's
the armor Slimes are equipped with. ^_^

- Alligator Skin -
Scenario: Many
Randomly won from Ammits. Just boring junk with no special properties.

- Fire-Beast Skin -
Scenario: Ginny's Adventure, To Gustave's Stronghold, The Last Megalith
Won randomly from Garms, the big Hell Hound'ish dogs. These show up every 
once in a while on the Old Battleground outside Hahn Nova and in the Last
Megalith, but they're much more frequent in the Giant Worm Cave. Pull the 
roots on the lower floor that drop bugs, and Garms will frequently show up 
with them.

Scenario: None 
Like the SLIME MAIL, I doubt this is available normally. Probably the
Skeleton's armor. ^_^

- Lake Robe -
Scenario: To the Monster's Nest (Johan the Assassin)
There're two of these. Ventarbre starts with one, and you can find one in
the Monster's Nest. It's not that hard to find, though, if you explore.

- Bone Armor -
Scenario: ????
Never found this, but it's probably won randomly from some type of skeletal

- Stardust Robe -
Scenario: Deadly Battle with the Egg, Insect Megalith
At the crossroads where there're a bunch of flying bugs, take the lower left
path. There's a chest there containing this great armor.

- Enhanced Armor -
Scenario: Ginny's Adventure, To Gustave's Stronghold
I've gotten a few of these. They're randomly dropped by Labor Ants, but 
aren't that good.

- Stone Plate -
Scenario: Into the Forest, To the Fossil Caves, Misty's Plot
Won randomly from Rock Rhinos. Those things sure do drop lots of good items.

- Redstone Armor -
Scenario: None (Laubholz Tower)
Won randomly from the Gargoyle. Not too bad, but there's better armor to be
- Silver Chain -
Scenario: Ginny's Adventure (Laubholz Tower)
Found in the 'treasure hoard' at the very bottom of the Giant Worm Cavern.
Also randomly won from the Gargoyle at Laubholz Tower.

- Lobster Mail -
Scenario: Life Tree Island
Won randomly from the Mother Grendel. Why'd they make it where so many items
are won only from bosses, anyhow? ^_^  

- Blackstone Armor -
Scenario: To the Monster's Nest
Won randomly from the Gargoyle. I dunno if you can win Redstone Armor or
Silver Chain from this one, though.

- Heavy Armor -
Scenario: To Gustave's Stronghold
In the treasure cave on the Old Battleground. (See the Wild Rose)

--- Full-body Armor ---

Scenario: None
Like the SLIME MAIL and SKELTON MAIL, this is probably just dummy armor.

- Hydra Suit - 
Scenario: To Gustave's Stronghold
In the treasure cave. (See the Wild Rose)

- Armor Suit -
Scenario: Ginny's Adventure, To Gustave's Stronghold
Won randomly from Ant Commanders. (Not Sniper Ants, as I thought previously)

--- Hats ---
- Pirate Bandana -
Scenario: Wil vs. Egg
I've never gotten this, but I've gotten several different reports about it. 
Apparently, you can randomly win it from either the female pirate inside the
ship, or from the pirate who has the Egg, but there also seems to be a more
effective way to get it. When confronted by the female pirate, tell her 
you're not a new crew member, and she'll ask you what you are. The answer
here is apparently completely random, but if you get it right, she'll just
give this to you. If you get it 'wrong', she'll attack you; just reload and
try again if this happens, and keep trying until you get it.

- Funny Cap -
Scenario: Varies
These're randomly won from several enemies. The only ones I noticed that
dropped it reliably, however, are Dietys.

- Feather Cap -
Scenario: Wil vs. Egg, Others
Never gotten this one myself. But according to reports, it's dropped 
randomly by the Wyvern, and by Polar Drakes.

- Mystic Veil -
Scenario: ????
I've never found this, and neither has anyone else, apparently. Let me know
if you find it...

- Gem Band -
Scenario: At the Mines (Mines Collapsed), To Cast a Rainbow
There're two of these, and they're both easy to get. When Svendorf Mines is
collapsing, return to the underground waterway where you saw the floating
chest earlier that you couldn't get. There's a Gem Band inside. There's also
another Gem Band in the Water Tower on Rich's quest, on one of the highest

--- Shoes ---

- Pop Shoes -
Scenario: Showdown! Alexei, Edelritter
This gets put here only because of the weird way you get it. Notice how 
there's a bag on a ledge above the north bridge that it doesn't seem like
you can get? Well, when you reach that area from below, lure the bird down
and have it touch the bag. It'll knock it off the ledge, allowing you to
grab it. It has the Pop Shoes in it.  There're a few other bags scattered 
throughout the quarry that you can also get this way.

- Crystal Wings -
Scenario: To Cast a Rainbow (Laubholz Tower, Weissland)
A pair of these cool shoes can be found at the very bottom level of the
Water Tower (where you place the Quell). You can also randomly win them from
Polar Drakes, and, if you wanna waste your time trying, Griffins.

- Titus Greaves -
Scenario: Ginny's Adventure
Footwear that doubles as a tool! :)  Under Covers occationally drop these.
I guess the Titus Beast probably does, too. Not that I've confirmed it, but
it makes sense.

--- Gauntlets/Rings ---

- Birch Ring -
Scenario: Gustave 15 Years Old
Kelvin starts with this. Do this scenario as soon as possible so Wil's team
can make use of it.

- Silver Gloves -
Scenario: Deadly Battle with the Egg
Similar to getting the Stardust Robe, only a bit more complex. In the Insect
Megalith, take the upper left path on the screen with the four flying bugs.
Follow the path here to the end, and you'll find a chest blocked by a bug.
Defeat the bug (which is quite strong), and take the chest to get the 

- Dominant Gloves -
Scenario: Into the Northern Continent, The Last Megalith
These're won rarely from Megalith Dragons. Ugh. Why are so many items in 
this game dropped exclusively by bosses!? 

--- Accessories ---

- Egg -
Scenario: ????
Probably another debug/dummy item. It doesn't seem to do anything, so I 
doubt you can get it. (Is this *the* Egg?)

- Soul Crystal -
Scenario: None (Gruegel/Vogelang)
Bought at the "Custom Items" shop. It doesn't have an anima type, so I guess
just getting enough chips/crowns is all it takes to get this to appear. This
item also carries over into clear game saves, unlike the custom weapons.

- Anima Crystal -
Scenario: None (Laubholz Tower)
The only one of these I've found is won from the 'special' Animal Ghoul at
the bottom of Laubholz Tower...

- Stardust -
Scenario: Into the Forest
I'm not sure what the point of this item is. It can only be used once, and
only casts Megabolt, which can be used infinitely through the Eternity 
Staff. There's also only one of these in the game, which is found in the
ancient forest.

- Demongrass Fang -
Scenario: Many
Another pointless single-use item. Still, it casts Needle Burst, so I guess
it's kinda fun. These're won randomly from Demon Seeds, and I guess the 
Demon Grass enemy in Laubholz Tower drops it, too. You can also buy them
sometimes from the peddler in Hahn Nova's entertainment district.

- Amber Ring -
Scenario: Many
Yet another pointless item. It doesn't even have a special effect, it's just
a single-use Beast tool. They're won randomly from Land Krakens, but why 
would you want them? ^_^

- Scorpion Tail -
Scenario: Johan the Assassin
This is a fun item that lets you cast Deadly Snake in battle. :)  
Johan starts with one, and you can win them rather easily from the Minor 
Assassins throughout Johan's single scenario.

- Canary Heart -
Scenario: Ginny's Adventure
Gotten the same way you get the Obsidian Axe. Pull on the roots, and it just
sorta falls on you. :)

- Cat's Eye -
Scenario: Infiltrate! Alexei Gang, Wil vs. Egg
Somewhere near the center of town in the City of the Night is a man who's
willing to trade you a Cat's Eye for either a Mushroom Tear, or a set of 
Green, Red, and Blue Ores. If you have the items, make the trade! (You can 
easily get all three ores by checking the colored buckets in Svendorf 

- Beast Rune -
Scenario: The Last Megalith (Weissland)
These're dropped randomly by the darker palette swaps of the Megalith Beast
called 'Nuckelavee', and by the Megalith Beast himself. Casts Regenerate in 
battle, so it's pretty good.

- Blue Chip -
Scenario: Many
Like the Amber Ring, it's a pointless item. Single-use, no special effect 
Water tool. Won randomly from Slimes and Dirt Hoppers, and found in chests
here and there. (Two of them can be found on the Grand Valley bridge. :P)

- Pan Flute -
Scenario: None (Gruegel/Vogelang)
Bought at the "Custom Items" shop. These probably work the same as the 
weapons. You probably need someone with a Tree level of 25, and a Tone level
of 25. These carry over into the Clear Game saves, though, so that might not
be how to get them. Given it's anima combination, and the fact that it's a
flute, this item *should* be able to cast Song of Earth in battle, but 
unfortunately, it can't for some strange reason.

- Pocket Dragon -
Scenario: Wil's Departure, Anima Faith Fiasco
In Hahn Ruins. From the South Entrance, climb down the stairs and take the
only door on the left. It's in the chest here.

- Hot Stone -
Scenario: At the Mines (Mines Collapsed) (Weissland)
Well, you can buy these at the item shop in Weissland for 10,000 Crowns, but
it's pretty pointless to do so when you can get one for free anyway. :P
When Svendorf Mines is collapsing, leave the room where you start and take 
the lower left path. (Take the lower right path first, to get the Gem Band.)
Here, take the upper path, but don't go anyplace; just turn around and go to
the previous room. The path on the right that you just came from is now 
blocked, but there's a miner and a chest there. Take the chest to get a free
Hot Stone.

- Anthurium -
Scenario: Into the Forest
A glorified Hot Stone. ^_^   This is on one of the higher floors of the
Ancient Tower, near where the Treefolk is. Walk around to the small ledge on
the far right, and loop around to get the chest containing this.

- Spring Orb -
Scenario: To Cast a Rainbow
In the Water Tower. You need this to finish the scenario, so I think you'll
be able to find it. ;)

- Night Medallion -
Scenario: Tycoon Wil
Another Quell you get as a result of the story. When you reach the giant
machine at the end of the Ice Megalith, you'll get this after the story

- Cielmerlion -
Scenario: None (The General's Memories)
This is a peculiar item. Cielmer starts with it equipped, and you can't 
remove it. What makes it so strange, though, is two things. First, it has
unlimited uses, and it's just an ordinary tool, not a Quell. Second, it 
doesn't seem to be usable in battle. I'm not sure why, it's just not...

- Amber Maleate -
Scenario: Wil's Departure, Anima Faith Fiasco
Another Hahn Ruins Quell; this one is the hardest one to explain... In the
crossroad room where there're three frogs, take the door on the lower right.
(The one in the upper right is blocked at the beginning; Wil just comments
about a ferocious monster. This should give you an idea of what I'm talking
about.) Take the chest for this Quell.

- Blood Star -
Scenario: Ginny's Adventure
Found in the 'treasure hoard' at the very bottom of the Giant Worm Cavern.

- Last Leaf -
Scenario: The Last Megalith
Won after defeating Wood Lord.

- Eternal Rock -
Scenario: The Last Megalith
Won after defeating Stone Lord.

- Nova Heart -
Scenario: The Last Megalith
Won after defeating Fire Lord.

- Deep Blue -
Scenario: The Last Megalith
Won after defeating Water Lord.

- Harmonium -
Scenario: The Last Megalith
Won after defeating Tone Lord.

- Tao Motif -
Scenario: The Last Megalith
Won after defeating Beast Lord.

- Dryad Grail -
Scenario: Into the Forest
Won after defeating the Treefolk.

- Gem Particle -
Scenario: Many
I have no idea what effect, if any, this has. You can randomly win it from
Slimes and other enemies.

- Red Scarf -
Scenario: Johan the Assassin
Johan starts with this. Why did I mention it? Because of it's added effect.
I'm not certain of this, so don't quote me on it, but I believe it increases
the chances of winning items after battle!

- Dead Stone -
Scenario: Many
Won randomly from Ghosts and Skeletons of any type, and you can get a 
freebie by defeating the female pirate onboard the pirate ship during Wil 
vs. Egg. You can also rarely get these buy buying items from the peddler at 
the Hahn Nova entertainment district. 

- Devil's Tear -
Scenario: Many
Randomly won from Empusas. Like Dead Stones, you can also get these 
occationally by buying them from the peddler at Hahn Nova.

- Mushroom Tear -
Scenario: Gustave 15 Years Old
This item itself is pretty pointless, but since you can trade it in for a
Cat's Eye in the City of the Night, I figured I'd include it anyhow. You can
randomly win these from Fung Men, or you can get one by repeatedly whacking
that giant mushroom in the Caverns of Jade.

- Rock-Beast Tag -
Scenario: ????
I got one of these before, but I forget where. I think Rock Rhinos drop 
these as well.

- Peg Heart -
Scenario: To Gustave's Stronghold
Again, I've never found this. But I've heard it can be won from Peg Queens.

 13. Credits and Closing stuff

  Scorpion Tail, casting Needle Burst by using the Demongrass Fang, and for
  several additions to the Weapon Arts lists.

- Michael Kurniawan ( for confirming the locations of a 
  bunch of items, how to get the Custom Weapons to appear in the shops, the
  location of the second Lake Robe, where extra Water Mirrors can be found,
  and letting me know that Hymnal can be learned in duels.
- Burn Griffith ( for the list of items buyable at
  the Custom Items shops, where to find Golden Axes and Fire-Beast Skin, and
  that you can buy Dead Stones at Hahn Nova.
- GenocideHeart ( for Rich's shop lists at
  Gruegel and Vogelang, exactly how to get the Pirate Bandana, and for 
  another enemy that drops Uroborus.

If you have a question or something, feel free to E-Mail me at using the subject line "SaGa Frontier 2", or something
similar. No offense intended, but if you send me a letter without a subject
line, or with something like "Need help", or "Hi", it'll get deleted. I'm 
sorry for sounding so harsh, but this is really all I can do to avoid
