Introduction

Welcome to my Tales of Destiny Tower of Druaga FAQ. I've decided to write 
this FAQ because other Walkthrough/FAQs did not cover as much information on 
the tower. Sometimes I would follow exactly what they write and I can never 
get the item because of a mistake or two. So I've decided on a boring 
Saturday to create an accurate FAQ on how to obtain the many items in the 
tower. And besides who wants to read inaccurate FAQs anyway? And also this 
FAQ can be the first one to be exclusively for the tower itself. Well anyways 
onto the FAQ!


Information about the tower:

The tower of Druaga, in my opinion, is a 60-floor tower of doom! Why you say? 
Well it's home to some of the cheapest enemies in the game. The rewards for 
going through it is it's nice and powerful goodies but to obtain them is 
easier said than done. Each level is the same but has a different layout. 
Each floor has a treasure and to obtain it you must solve a puzzle associated 
with each floor that was the same from Namco's original game, Tower of 
Druaga. It may be simple or it may be very complex but the goodies are well 
worth it. To reach the next floor you must obtain the key of the level and go 
straight through the door. Easy, right? It would be if there weren't any 
enemies around to make your life miserable. 


How/Where to get into the tower:

To get into the tower you must first find three rods: The RC, GC, BC rods. 

       The RC rod is inside the Swordian Lab. The lab is located northeast of 
Armeida. The chest with the rod is near where the tombstone Stahn obtains 
another Ougi is.

       The GC rod is in Cloudius. It is located in one the teleporters in the 
left side of floor 4. Once you get inside Cloudius you MUST obtain the rod 
before it is too late because later in the game you won't have a chance to go 
back.

       The BC rod is in Walt's house in Harmetz. The BC rod is called 'Old 
Cane' but you need to use a rune bottle or Philia's Identify ability to turn 
it into the rod. 
       
       The tower is located in the area of Janos (that snow town in the 
beginning of the game). Remember that temple where you met Mary with Rutee? 
That's where the tower is. If you don't, exit Janos through the north way and 
go to the right on the fork that you come across to. Keep running until you 
come across a save point. Save your game here because the tower isn't going 
to be an easy walk in the park. Once you have done that run north into the 
temple. Once inside run up until you come across three altars. Place the 
three rods on them to open up the entrance. Once open, step inside and meet 
your doom!


Preparations:

This is the hardest dungeon in the game so you might want to come in prepared 
for what lies ahead of you.

1. Have a FULL supply of every Gel, Life Bottle, P. Bottle, etc...
2. I recommend at least level 55 with more or less 6000HP but some people 
have done it with lower levels.
3. Have Stahn equipped with the Phoenix skill.
4. Have a non-elemental weapon for Stahn (Bahamut's Tear recommended).
5. Have the best equipment you can find including the ones in Dycroft.
6. If your bringing Philia along have her equipped with the Mystic Symbol so 
she cast her spells quicker.
7. Bring Chelsea along because her bow skills come in very handy especially 
her Force Arrow.

These things are vital to your survival. These alone have helped me tackle 
the tower and will probably help you too ^_^.

This is it the showdown with the last boss of the dungeon, Druaga! Before you 
try to kick his ass make sure you have ALL 3 rods or be prepared to have your 
ass handed back to you because you can only damage him if you have all the 
rods in your inventory. If you don't have all of them, get the key and open 
the door to be "zapped" back to the lower floors (sometimes floor 38) to get 
the rods that you have missed. If you have the rods here is what you do, kill 
a hyper knight and a wizard. When this is done a Quox will appear (EQUIP A

towards it and fight Druaga. Once he is defeated get the key and go to the 
final floor.

There are no battles to do on this floor so relax and take a breather. Talk 
to the girl and place the 3 rods (by pressing X) on the bottom, middle, and 
top of the screen.

Congratulations, you have made it past the hardest side quest in the game. Go 
save your status and give yourself a pat in the back for a job well done. ^_^ 
Now go through it again if you want to get duplicate items (Magical Ribbons 
for the girls) or new items such as the strongest SW disc. ^_^



Enemy List:

This is a complete enemy list for the tower.
Note: You get no Gald or Lens in the battles in the tower.

Green Slime
HP 2908
TP  400 
 
These guys are easy to defeat just whack them!


Black Slime
HP 3228
TP  500

A higher-level slime but still same old slime.


Blue Knight
HP 3400
TP    0

A low level knight. Not tough to beat.


Mage
HP 2410
TP  420

You want to know why you need the Phoenix skill? It's because of scum like 
him. These guys cast Cyclone continuously, which can totally mess up your 
party. As soon as battle starts have Stahn thrust into a mage then 
IMMEDIATELY do Phoenix. It should kill a few of them and interrupt their 
spells giving you enough time to kill the remaining few. 


Sorcerer
HP 2728
TP  520

Use same tactics as above as these guys like to cast Explode.


Black Knight
HP 3728
TP    0

Higher level of the Blue Knight. Not very tough to deal with.


Red Slime
HP 3548
TP  600

Higher level of Slime but these guys like to cast fire magic usually 
Fireball.


Mage Ghost
HP 2508
TP  500

Back from the dead and ready to get even! Same as a Mage with slightly higher 
HP and TP. Phoenix still works even though they fly. 


Druid
HP 3048
TP  620

Use same tactics as if fighting a Mage. These guys like to cast Holy Wrath.


Blue Slime
HP 3868
TP  700

Higher level of slime. These guys like using ice magic.


Druid Ghost
HP 2868
TP  620

Same as Druid, use my mage tactics to have an easier time to beat them.


Wizard
HP 3368
TP  720

As always use the same Mage tactics on these guys. They like casting Air 
Slash if I remember correctly.


Quox
HP 4568
TP    0 

Now your probably thinking...why do I need a non-elemental weapon for Stahn? 
Well it's because of this guy and a couple of other enemies. He absorbs all 
elements and can only be beaten by non-elemental weapons. Bahamut's Tear is 
the non-elemental weapon of choice for Stahn. If you so happened to run into 
him without equipping a non-elemental weapon then during battle quickly equip 
the kick attack skill on Stahn and repeatedly use it against him. It'll take 
awhile to beat him with it though.


Mirror Knight
HP 4568
TP    0

A higher-level knight. Only difference is that they have more HP and have a 
higher attack power.


W. Ghost
HP 3148
TP  720

Like always use the Mage tactic on them because they like to show no mercy.


Will O' Wisp
HP 4000
TP  500

These guys are nothing but they do cast some nasty spells.


Hyper Knight
HP 4368
TP    0

Same ole' knight. Like always they just have an increase in attack power and 
HP.


Green Roper
HP 4048
TP  600

These guys are nothing until they get hold of you. Once they have you in 
their clutches they pound away on you like there's no tomorrow. If Stahn 
happens to be paralyzed quickly recover him and immediately use Phoenix to 
get out of a sticky situation.


DG Slime
HP 4188
TP  800

Same ole' slime. Only difference is a higher attack power and HP.


Silver Dragon
HP 4888
TP    0

I call him the brother of Quox. He has higher HP and is immune to Dymlos. 
Equip Stahn with Bahamut's Tear if you want to lay waste on him. Again if you 
encountered him with Dymlos equipped, equip the kick attack technique.


Red Roper
HP 4368
TP  700

Just like a green roper but has a higher attack power. Don't get TOO close to 
them.


Red Knight
HP 5108
TP    0

The highest knight class. They have a much higher attack power and HP values 
then other knights.


Lizard Man
HP 4688
TP    0

These guys absorb fire damage so Dymlos is a no-no. If you happen to have 
Dymlos equipped have Rutee or Philia cast any water type spell. 


DY Slime
HP 4608
TP  900

The highest slime class. These guys have higher attack and HP values than 
normal slimes.


Blue Roper
HP 4688
TP  800

These guys are badass if you're caught in their clutches. They have a higher 
attack value than normal ropers. So don't get caught or prepare for the 
biggest beating of your life!


False Ishtar
HP 15,000
TP    850

She's not a worthy opponent to fight near the end of the tower. The only 
problem you'll have with her is if she petrifies you with her charm.
 

Druaga 
HP ??,????
TP    ???

I knew I forgot to get his HP & TP values. D'oh! Anyways, for being the last 
boss of the dungeon, he's a pushover. Have Rutee heal whenever possible and 
with Philia just pound him with her spells. Mary, Bruiser, Chelsea, Garr 
should use their specials on him while Stahn should use assassin or Phoenix.

A way you can help:

If anyone knows an accurate way of obtaining the treasure on any floors I 
missed please feel free to drop me an e-mail in my mailbox. Also e-mail me if 
you happen to find any errors (which sometimes are abundant ^_^) while 
reading my FAQ.


Notes:

This is my first FAQ attempt so please don't flame me because you think it 
sucks or you don't like its style and besides who's making you read it 
anyways? Anyways if anyone has any questions, compliments, flames, about my 
FAQ, again, drop me an e-mail.


Credits
- To my best friend Patrick Forgione for information of various floors, 
spelling and grammar errors, and giving me the idea of writing an FAQ.
