Website: I used to have a site about English and Japanese artbooks (I have ~150
right now), but Tripod took it down. I'm definitely putting up an improved 
version sometime in the future.

NOTE: Open this in WordPad. The alignment is all wrong in Notepad

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Do not copy this FAQ or post it on any website claiming it as your own. You may
post this file without my permission only if it's unedited. Don't cut-and-paste
the information either, whether it is for your own FAQ or your website. 

Email: Feel free to email me with questions, corrections, or suggestions. BUT,
do not ask me any question that is already answered in any of the other TODII
FAQS (Hint: Press Ctrl + F to bring up a search box with the document open.) If
you ask, "How do I get __________" about a common item, I'll just delete your
message. Most likely, I won't even remember how to get the item off the top of
my head. Thanks.

Why I wrote this FAQ: I had a lot of trouble finding out which items I was
missing, so I decided to make it easier for others. Item lists on other FAQS
are incomplete, ordered differently than the menu screen, or in Japanese. This
is my first and only FAQ so far. I hope I did okay.

Contents:
1) The List
2) Eterpoke Pocketstation Games
3) Cless + Arche Battle Strategy
4) Nereid's Labyrinth Guide/Strategy

===============================================================================

What happens when you get all the items: Keele gets the "Curator" title. You 
can check your items through the "Collector's Book" item found in Racheans, in
the elder's house. I haven't confirmed this myself because I missed "Donies
Potpourri". I've listed the locations of some of the harder to find items.
The item list goes across rather than down, so if you're missing anything the
other items will be in different columns. This FAQ is completely spoiler-free
except for the name of one of the valuable items (spoiler for Disc 1) and the
Nereid's Labyrinth Guide.

I've marked off the items (the few that I know of so far) that can be missed
forever with an *. If you know of any others, please email me so I can mark 
them. 

*Also, if you save this file and the columns are all messy and ugly, open it in 
WordPad by right-clicking and selecting Send To > WordPad.

2) Eterpoke Pocketstation Minigames
     There are four additional items you can get only with a Gameshark.
(See http://www.cmgsccc.com/psx/index.php?multi=72 for codes). These were taken
out of the US release because Namco didn't feel like translating them (the same
reason they took out the chat sequences). Selecting the Eterpokes brings up a 
lot of Japanese text and a few options, so maybe they can be played? I'll check
and try to figure out what's going on when I get new batteries for my brother's 
pocketstation. 

===============================================================================

3) Cless + Arche Battle Strategy

You can fight Cless in the World Championships at Inferia City Arena (after 
winning City and Nation championships). Arche will appear with him only on 
'Hard' or 'Hardcore' mode. This is easily the most difficult battle of the game
You can only fight him once, unless you reset, and he gives you Reid's best 
weapon when you beat him. 

Preparation: Be at least level 70. Master "Tuna Paella" with Reid. Get 15 
Reverse Dolls (auction off a Chaos Shield or Elixir at Jinni, then buy the 
Dolls there with your reward. To raise the auction price: save, raise reserve
price, sleep at inn, check, if it fails reset, repeat. 150-300K Jinni is a good
price for the Chaos Shield.) Set "Tuna Paella" on Auto-Cook before entering the
contest.

Battle: Equip the Reverse Doll, Faerie Ring, and Mumbane to protect (somewhat)
against Arche's spells. Whenever you die and a Reverse Doll breaks, equip 
another. Concentrate on killing Arche first, since she's easier. Neo Tempest 
Swarm and Omega Demon Chaos work well on her. If Cless tries to trap you with 
Sonic Blades, jump and use Tempest Strike to escape. After Arche dies, equip
the Golden Armor to protect from Cless' Rising Phoenix. I used 3 attacks + 
special skill combos on him because I don't know any better ones, but I don't
know if you can really avoid getting hit by him. It took me 13 Reverse Dolls, 
but I finally won.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4) Nereid's Labyrinth Guide/Strategy  (SPOILERS!!!- tells who the bosses are)

After beating the last boss, save over a _DIFFERENT_ file and replay your old
one. There will be a new dungeon, NL, on the Orbus Barrier below the Relay 
Point. This place is entirely random, meaning that you just have to wander 
around until you accidentally end up in the right place. (Yay!) There are 6
bosses on six floors, you cannot save at any time, and can only use items in
battle. Each character completes 1 floor by themselves (for 5 levels, no repeats), 
and you get 4 characters for the 6th-floor boss. 

Preparation: Stock up on items and food, and get the best equipment you can.
Maybe get some Reverse Dolls, but you probably won't need them unless your 
levels are low. Unequip all characters, and set up the craymels correctly for 
your first mage. 

After each boss, unequip the character you just used (to free up items for the 
other characters), and transfer the Craymels if you used Meredy. You can choose
to leave or continue if you step on the teleport, but you must start over next
time if you leave. 

CHARACTERS: 
Meredy: Equip Mystic Symbol, and fringe Shooting Star (Maxwell + Sekundes), 
  Heal (Undine + Sylph), and maybe Freeze Lancer or anything else. Keep using
  Shooting Star and do the Maxwell summon extension on the boss (cure TP 1st)
  to kill him quickly. See RChan's Craymel FAQ for the extension.
  Because she casts so slow, has such low HP, and can't attack directly, she 
  can't survive past the 2nd FL. 
Chat: Equip Jet Boots. Her controls are awkward, she has very low HP, and she 
  can't attack easily. She won't survive past the 2nd FL either. 
Keele: Same setup as Meredy but also equip Jet Boots. He's a lot better because
  he can attack much quicker. FL 1-3 should be no problem, maybe 4, but don't
  use him on 5 because the bosses will never let him cast a spell.
Max: Equip Jet Boots, and Canceler for the boss. (link elemental attack + 
  light/dark attack + elemental master) He should be fine on any level, but be
  sure to get one of his best weapons or you'll be spending 2 minutes on each
  battle. 
Reid: Use on FL 4 or 5.
Farah: Same as Reid.

LEVELS: 
1. Wind Elementaler - Meredy/Chat/Keele/Max
2. Fire Elementaler - Meredy/Chat/Keele/Max
3. Earth Elementaler- Keele/Max
   These guys have a powerful close-range combo attack but are extremely slow.
   Don't get near them- just run and use long-range attacks.
4. Living Armor - Max/Reid/Farah
   He takes a lot of damage off your characters, and I don't think you can 
   avoid his attacks. Just move in close and keep attacking him with combos. 
5. Hyades- Max/Reid/Farah
   First kill his helpers so they can't interrupt you with magic, then kill 
   him. 
6. Nereid- Choose 4 characters (I chose Ried/Farah/Meredy/Keele)
   This battle will take a while and you'll use a lot of Life Bottles, but I 
   don't know of any real strategy for it. 

===============================================================================

That's all

Thank you to: All the FAQ writers on Gamefaqs, especially for TOD II. I went 
back and got many of the items I missed based on that information (especially
the Aifish coordinates and items appearing in old dungeons). Namco for 
developing this game even though they cut the English version and added
embarrassingly-bad voice acting. Also the Gamefaqs message board users for tips 
on extensions.
