System: PS ONE (Normal Playstation 1 in smaller form) Region: NTSC USA/Canada Legal Notics. You're free to download and copy this FAQ to anyone you know as long as it's unprofitable and this FAQ is unmodified. When uploading this FAQ to please let me know. In most cases it won't be a problem if you do. (C) Copyright JBC-Soft, Jeroen Broks (Tricrorka), 2001, All rights reserved History -.-- 08-15-2001 - The date I started playing the game to write this FAQ 1.00 08-25-2001 - The date I finished the first release! 1.01 06-25-2002 - Added "Good Luck Zone", "Wind Tiger's Den" and "Meteor Crater" *** INTRODUCTION *** If you try to finish the game without a walktrough you may sometimes be stuck forver in finding the locations on the worldmap. Some are extreemly hard to find and that "search" option, makes things even worse. It's one of the very few negative points of the game. Searching the map may sometimes eat more time and makes the game boring. That's a pity. That's why I wrote this special guide for it. You play the game without a walktrough but save yourself the boring time of searching the whole map, but the rest of the puzzles won't be explained here so you still got the challenge of finishing the game without a walktrough. Using my FAQ is supposed to take much frustration away.... *** NOTES *** 1 - I played the American version so if I use names it will always be the English names. So Riruka will be called Lilka for example... 2 - I'm sure a lot of optional locations will be missing here. Don't flame me about it, but tell me how to find them so I can improove this FAQ. If you do please tell me if you want to be credited for it. 3 - It won't make sense to search for a location if you don't fit the "requirement".... It simply won't be there! So be sure to check the requirement before searching a location. If the requirement is "none" then the requirement is simply that you must be able to reach the place first, which will mostly not be until you need to be there. 4 - To be able to enter a location you must use the "Search" feature (unless the location is marked with a "*" in this guide). If you "Search" and you're close enough to the location and you fit its requirements it will appear on the map. The "Search" button is the same as the "Tools" button in dungeons. Default is Square if I haven't mistaken (I usually use a other controller configuration) 5 - If I note a location has a (optional) boss, it might be that you don't encounter it right away. In most of the cases it will, however. Most of the optional bosses won't be encountered right away, but are locked in pyramids that are activated by "My Mike". I'm not going into detail about that in this guide. 6 - Spots with "(Disappear)" behind it will disappear after visiting and you'll never be able to get back there. 7 - At some spots I left out the bosses or some of the bosses. Don't flame me about it, I know they are there. I did it in order not to spoil the game. 8 - Halfway the game you'll get the Bionic Eye. Very helpfull in spotting locations. *** Introduction Locations *** The introduction locations are the locations where Ashley, Brad and Lilka will have a personal dungeon first before the game really starts.

Keep going North until you reach a gorge. Go west following the line of the Gorge. Quartly is a bridge over this gorge so you may search this whole gorge.

It's above the sea south of Sielje. Keep searching. Patience will get you there. It's not on the bionic eye, so that makes it even more difficult. A shadow in the sea may tell it's location. My experience told me that when you use the Chateau and go to the island south-east of Sielje, the Heimdall Gazzo is right to the South of it. *** END OF DISC 1 *** *** DISC 2 *** Location 32: Grotto Of Lourdes Requirement: Available as soon as you you reach the worldmap on Disc 2 Bosses: None Optional Bosses: None Warp to Sielje and warp to the Hovercraft Go to the island to the south.

Go to the North and dock at the beach and search here. Location 38: Raypoint Flam & Palace Village Requirement: Lombardia Bosses: Flam Knight Optional Bosses: None Palace Village is optional, but nice to buy the best weapons you can buy in a store. Palace Village is soooo close to Raypoint Flam that I discuss it in one location. Warp to Meria. Fly to the big island to the North (Ignore the smaller island) If you can find Judecca's Diablo Pillar here, you got the right island. From the Diablo pillar cross the mountain and land at the wide open spot here. From here you can use the bionic eye to pinpoint Palace Village and Raypoint Flam. Location 39: Raypoint Geo Requirement: Lombardia Bosses: Geo Knight Optional Bosses: None Warping to Guild Galad is a nice option to start with. Use Lombardia to go a little to the east and you might see a nice round island on the map scope, to the south. Fly to there and land on the peak of the mountain here. Search here and voila. Location 40: Trapezohedron (Disappearing) Requirement: Completed all the 4 Raypoints Bosses: Larva Optional Bosses: None Warp to Quartly. Board Lombardia and fly to the salt plains to the north.

Problem is Lombardia can't land close to it. :( Fly to the Peninsula with Lombardia and go south and go east as soon as the peninsula connects to the land and here you'll find a place to land.

From the beach head a little North-West and search here. Optional Location 2: Island Outpost Requirement: I'll take that in more detail in my description below Reward: Level 2 magic. And the possiblity to learn "Extend" (Later) Optional Bosses: None Once the dog in T'Bok village brought you the Teleport Orb, warp back to Sielje. Speak to someone named Karayan who is in the libarary. Read a book here about Teleport Orbs and leave Sielje. Put Lilka in the lead and use the Teleport Orb to warp to a location at random and she'll mess up and land on a small island. Search here. You'll meet Day who'll teach you level 2 magic. ABOUT EXTEND! This is not the right FAQ to talk about it, but I got too many questions about it, and it came to my attention that there are too many FAQs wrong about this topic. After you got level 2 magic you may encounter Karayan in the Sielje Library (don't know exactly from which moment. I checked when I went for the Diablo Pillars, but you can come back later, as well). Talk to Karayan who'll say to be tired of spreading higher magic around the world. Now warp to the Island Outpost and Day will teach you Extend (Lilka must be in the lead) From that moment you'll have no more business at the island outpost. Normal magic guilds will now teach you level 1 and 2 spells... So that's said. Optional Location 3: Dark Reason Requirement: None Reward: Leita Salk, Guardian Of Darkness Optional Bosses: None The same way at the abadoned mine shaft (Location 24). This one is in the middle of this island. Optional Location 4: Crimson Castle Requirement: Lombardia Reward: Secret Party Member: Marievel.

The owner will tell you about a strange building to the NE. Leave Damzen and head North-East. YOu'll find it easily witht the bionic eye. Optional Location 6: Promised Catacombs Requirement: Marievel. And doing things I'll describe below Reward: Wind-Up key, needed to get My Mike. And it seems you can get Marievel's second force here. Optional Bosses: None At the library of Meria castle is a book called "Crimson Noble Sancturary". Only Marievel can read it. Read it. Now leave Meria and board Lombardia. Put the map-scope on for quicker pinpointing the location by pressing "Select" twice. Go to the island SouthWest on the map. It's completely forest with a clearing where Lombardia can land. On this island walk to the South East of this Island and Search here. Optional Location 7: Pirate's Warren Requiremnts: Lombardia Reward: Servel bonusses. Optional bosses: Gatlorg Warp to Sielje. Go to the east (with Lombardia) over the dark spot in the ocean (Where Ptolomea's Diablo Pillar is located as well). Go to the east of this dark spot and you'll see and island. Land here and search this spot to find the Pirate's Warren. Optional Location 8: Fab Lab Requirements: Marivel must have spoken to Luka. A girl in the Pub of Damzen.

You may find it there somewhere (there's a landing pad nearby). Optional Location 11: Meteor Crater Requirements: Lombardia Reward: Rigdrobrite, star guardian Optional Bosses: Zavorg South of the map is an island with a bit crater, that's the place to search. More optional locations will be listed in updates of this guide....
