-.-- 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"


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
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 

*** Introduction Locations ***

Palace village is the only place that will disappear after visiting it so you'll

turn into the sideway to the right here (west). You'll see a beach at a desert.
Dock here and enter the desert. Keep going North until you reach a gorge. Go

Optional Bosses: Kobold King
Warp to Holst and then warp to the Hovercraft. Go around the Island you are now
until you reach a beach at the North side. Search the North-East of this Island

Bosses:          Drawdo, Caina (2)
Optional Bosses: None

landing path. Beam down here and search the area. Easy to spot with Bionic Eye

Location 27:     Diablo Pillar Ptolomea
Requirement:     Coffin 100 eyes completed
Bosses:          Belleclaire, Ptolomea (3)

No "search" button required, but it's still HELL to find this one! }:(
Use Valeria Chateau to reach this one. 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.

        Ray-point Wing.

Location 36:      Raypoint Wing *

Location 37:      Raypoint Muse

Enter the bridge. Use Tim's Mist Cloak to get by the panel and open the 
bridge. Leave the bridge and warp to the Hovercraft. Go to the brigde and 
you can get past it at the open spot. Go to the North and dock at the beach

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

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

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

Location 41:      Fiery Wreckage

At the beach land and search at the edge of the beach.

Location 42:      Spiral Tower  * Final Location *

                  is Glaive Le Gable which is accessed from the
                  Spiral Tower)
Optional Bosses:  None
The Spiral Tower is easy to spot. It's on the giant peninsula in the
middle of the inner sea. At's at the peak of its mountain. 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. Now
you must go to the mountain on the peninsula and go to its peak and search

Optional Locations:

Optional Location 1: Thunder Lion Cage
Requirement:         None
Reward:              Noua Shax (Thunder Guardian)
Optional Bosses:     None
Go to the beach west of the inner sea with the Hovercraft (Where you found 
tablet 3). 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

of this island.

Optional Location 4: Crimson Castle
Requirement:         Lombardia
