SONY PLAYSTATION SUIKODEN 2: CLIVE'S QUEST in depth walkthrough By Daniel Salcedo Lˇpez (a.k.a. The little ripper "rippercito") e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Version 1.0 Date 05/02/01 This Faq┤s copyright rippercito 2001 ===================================================================== 0-"AUTHOR'S NOTE"(SPOILERS WARNING) ===================================================================== This walkthrough doesn┤t say: Meet that person in that place under ? hours to advance the quest. Many players got trouble with that (me too) because you can visit that place only once or you are visiting that place during all the game a hundred times,without knowing WHEN you should visit it. So, I'm using the game events as a guide for this,and that means SPOILERS. ===================================================================== 1-"WHY A CLIVE'S QUEST FAQ/WALKTHROUGH" ===================================================================== When I began to rip Suikoden 2,some friends told me they didn┤t bother about Clive┤s Quest.The point was that,the Quest was to be finished in 20 hours or less,and that meaned you will lose every chance to explore further the game unless you play it at least twice. But what happens if you don┤t wanna play it again... we all know what happens when you end a 40-60 hours game... You are exausted and start a new one. You may think that only to do a simple quest it's not worth and let the game on a shelf for a long time.But if you are a top Suikoden (1 or 2) fan,and want to know what┤s up with this guy.I┤ll try to give you some advice. ======================================================================== 2-"TIME EARNING METHOD" ======================================================================== Methods I do not recommend: Why??? Avoiding all battles (Flee)--------------------> (you got no Exp. points) The next boss battle will be very difficult Not reading any text ---------------------------> you may choose a wrong option while talking My Method: I┤m sure you realized this too. Well,it┤s a bit slow but IT WORKS,I used this: You need to keep 2 saves,this means you┤ll need 4 free blocks on your memory card.With the first,read all text and make a map of the next dungeon.You can battle if you want but be sure you mark all chests and everything of interest about the dungeon. When you can save,DO IT and reset the game. After this use the second save to go again to the same place but directly to the chests and everyplace you need to complete the dungeon or the event. You can battle if you wish to gain some levels and quickly end with the boss.Then save the game and reset. Repeat all with the first save to advance the next event or dungeon. THANKS to Konami,they put a soft reset option. (Remember? L1-L2-R1-R2-SELECT-START at once). This way you can earn Exp points and you will know what option you must choose while talking.It may be a good idea using the same party and just a few more characters during the whole game. (Don┤t forget to make Clive a member ot that party after you recruit him). ========================================================================== 3-WALKTHROUGH (WARNING!!!! SPOILERS) ========================================================================== ====================== 1 : MUSE (BEFORE FALL) ====================== The first time you arrive at Muse (after you end the Sindar Ruins Dungeon). Move to the right of the city and go up.You will find a woman that will ask you to keep something (parcels). Answer yes,and keep going up.Clive will appear and ask you if you┤ve seen a woman answer no and go to the exit of the city,you will meet both the woman (Elza) and Clive himself and end this first step. MY TIME: Under 3 hours ============================== 2 : SOUTH WINDOW (BEFORE FALL) ============================== When you got the Castle and a boat to Lakewest recruit Clive near the entrance of the Town. Go to the Castle and make him a member of your party then go by boat to Lakewest. MY TIME: Under 6 hours ============ 3: LAKEWEST ============ Enter the INN with Clive and talk to the man near the counter.You will receive a letter from Elza. MY TIME: 3 minutes after the previous event ================== 4 : FOREST VILLAGE ================== When you get access to the GREENHILL AREA,before going to GREENHILL as students,after the battle for TWO RIVERS.Visit the forest village and move to a clearing of trees north of town with Clive in your party.You will meet Elza?? there. MY TIME: Under 7 hours ========================= 5 : ROCKAXE (BEFORE FALL) ========================= When you are going to Matilda through the GreenHill/Matilda path don't forget to take Clive in your party,because when you arrive at the end of the forest-path (you will see ther 2 Matilda knights)you will not be able to change your party members for a while. In Rockaxe when you can access the town itself,after Miklotov leaves,go to the INN,right near the town exit.If Clive is in your party ,a new event will take place. MY TIME: Under 10 hours ============== 6 : RADAT TOWN ============== After leaving the Matilda Area,this means: You have Miklotov in your party,or as a member of the conboy. You have recruited Humphrey and Futch You have completed The Dragon Quest (Rakkutei Mt. Dungeon) You have Clive in your party,that means you ejected from your party other members went recruiting new ones. Before going back to your Castle,whith Miklotov,direct your steps to RADAT TOWN,because it won't be possible for a while later on the game.There,take Clive to the PUB for a new event. MY TIME: Under 11 hours ================================ 7 : MUSE CITY (AFTER LIBERATION) ================================ This is the most difficult part,be carefull or you might lose many hours on your way to this event.Try saving a huge amount of time and arrive here under 19 hours. After conquering Rockaxe Castle,and then the NANAMI event (don`t wanna spoil this),when you here Shu talking to Apple in Shu`s room at the Castle and she picks up the fire card from Shu┤s table. Don┤t go back to your room when Apple says that.Direct your steps to Greenhill,and go to Jouston hill (don┤t worry,no golden wolves there now). All of this obviously with Clive in your party. MY TIME: Under 19 hours UFFFFFF!!!! ================= 8 : SAJAH VILLAGE ================= After you enter L┤renouille (This means you won the last battle map),Viktor will ask you to choose the final party to enter L┤renouille Castle,choose a party,with Clive in it and then,exit the Castle,Sajah village is northwest of L┤renouille. IT IS THERE WHERE THE FINAL EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE. TIME: Under 20 hours ENJOY THE END OF THE QUEST... COPYRIGHT rippercito 2001 e-mail me if you got any other questions about the quest.
