Yes, I've finally completed the best RPG of the year for the Playstation.
And it took me great pains to pass the final dungeon of the game, at the brink of completion...
So you know, it is the maze you have to go through when your Yggdrasil enters the huge grey 
statue-like structure.
Yep, it sure baffled me, and I'm sure it baffles any gamer who goes there for the first time.
So, I've done up this guide for fellow Xenogears players cuz most walkthroughs do not give a 
clear enough explanation 
(all the walkthroughs and FAQs I've found on the Net left me more puzzled than ever for this 
 part of the game). 
You may consider printing this document as it contains diagrams.



1. FINAL DUNGEON : DEUS


PART ONE
When you first enter, by pressing SELECT, you can access the map to see a honeycomb-like 
labyrinth.
Nothing too hard though, you have to make your way to the top right of the area.
Blue parts mean high elevation, while dark blue means low. You don't have to worry about 
that though. By high elevation it means the height you reach when you jump.
Directly SOUTH of the exit is a MEMORY CUBE.


ENEMIES
You will face lots of Angel gears in the final dungeon. You can kill them for experience, 
but I figured: why bother? Every time I met them, I just ran! Yeah, souns lousy, but it much
more of a bother to keep fighting so many of them, that is, if you survive...
Anyway if you keep running, you might get hit in the process before being able to get away.
That doesn't matter, even if one of your gears get killed (especially by the ANGEL attack).
Dead gears revive after you run away, but with only a little HP. So what? It is very hard for 
all 3 gears to die in a single battle before you are able to run away.
In the worst case, you may spend some fuel out of battle to fix your gears.


After reaching the door, you will jump down a pit. Avoid the laser beams. You will then come to
a new area.


PART 2
You can again hit SELECT to see a map. A simplified version is shown below. The elevation colours
are back, but you have to take a lift to go up/down. In this map, there will be no enemies.

                        MAIN AREA

The area is full of pods (many housing elevators) and corridors. You can use the elevators as 
you please by pressing the SEARCH button at the pod.
Some corridors may be rotated by pushing the BAR physically found on top of some pods. In the
map, a faint circle represents rotatable corridors. You may use them as you please to reach 
where you are heading faster. Don't be mistaken: they are not requirements to leave this stage.
Your aim is to get to the RED POD. But you can't reach it yet. You have to build a bridge.
The alphabets in the above map shows the exits into a network of roads. There are 2 networks,
shown below. You can hit SELECT to see their maps when in the network. Unfortunately, there are
enemies in those networks. So hurry on! The networks are shown below:

	            x        x         
     			 

                           NETWORK 2



The alphabets I added show the exits out of the network into the corresponding door in the 
MAIN AREA.
To build the bridge which links exit G to the RED POD (see MAIN AREA map), you have to activate
2 sensors. They appear like a streak of laser on top of each pod. You have to touch the lasers.
One is found right NORTH of the RED POD.
The other is found somewhere at the FAR RIGHT-MIDDLE of the MAIN AREA, somewhere between C and D.
Use my maps to help you find your way.
After touching BOTH lasers, you will see the link from G to the RED POD in the map of the MAIN
AREA.
Get into NETWORK 2 (by any way you desire), exit via G and enter the RED POD!
There! You have passed the most difficult and confusing part of the game!

PART3
You shall fall down another similar pit with the red lasers.
You return to the place where you foungt RAMSUS and MIANG earlier in the game.
There is a MEMORY CUBE here (phew!).
NOTE: DO NOT ENTER THE MAIN PASSAGEWAY YOU SEE YET!!!
There is another passage at the side which leads to a gear which sells Character AND Gear stuff.
Tune up/buy whatever you need. This is your last chance to do so, and last time you need to do
so.
REMEMBER TO REFUEL OR YOU'LL NEVER SURVIVE THE NEXT BATTLE!!
You can also leave the dungeon from behind the robot.
NOTE: IF YOU DO SO, YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE FINAL DUNGEON ALL OVER AGAIN!!
After everything's done, go into the main passage for the

			FINAL CONFRONTATION.



2. Sorry, my guide does not include this part of the game, but I recommend                           
'Xenogears Walkthrough and FAQ' by David Johnson (johnsonr@compuserve.com). You can find it at
www.gamefaqs.com

Just a note: I think the ending animation and song are way cool.

And something to add:
For Fei's last 2 Deathblows, you need to reach Levels 72 and 80 respectively. If you acquire
the 2nd last Deathblow, you would be able to use the X attack during Infinity Level, which is
very powerful! Helps a lot during the final battles. You can trash the half-woman half-monster
thingy at the end like crazy!!


Hey feel free to email me regarding this guide (mistakes, comments, what else to add),
Xenogears and other Playstation games.
Would love to just discuss about PS games. 
And any Singaporean players out there, please contact me!                        


As usual, please do not delete my name, call this your own, and stick it in your webpage or 
submit it somewhere else. No one with a conscience would claim someone else's work as his/her
own.
