It's me Hello Hello, and I've finally gotten around to making an FAQ of my very own. I was thinking that GameFAQs has given so much to me, that it's about time that I gave something back. This is my first FAQ, so give me a break if it's not perfect. This FAQ is for the Lottery system in the sleeper hit Shadow Hearts for the PS2. While the lottey system isn't really mandetory for prosperity in Shadow Hearts, some of the items it gives out can make things a LOT easier. I sincerely hope this guide helps you in some way while you are enjoying Shadow Hearts. (I should probably also warn you now that I am a Speedtyper, which means there will probably be typos... Lots of them. I also warn you that this guide will contain SPOILERS, so read on at your own risk!) -------------------------- FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS -------------------------- Q: What is the lottery in Shadow Hearts? How does it work? A: The lottery is a simple mini-game of sorts. To initiate it you must have at least one lottery ticket in your invetory, and you must find a lottery member. If you have a ticket in your invetory after the member's regular diologue, the member in question will ask if you are interested in playing the lottery. If you say yes, the Judgement Ring will appear and and begin spinning endlessly until you press X. Once you press X the ring will go around one more time but it WILL land where you pressed it. There are always various prizes in each game of lottery, which are separated into colours on the Judgement Ring. The colours they receive depends on the value of the prize. The most valueable prizes are always Red, and then they go on in value to Yellow, Aqua, Green, and White. White is always Tissues, which are worthless except for in one part of the game. Q: How many lottery members are there? A: 16 Q: Are some members missable? A: YES! Once you get to certain points in the game, some members will be unreachable. You'll have to play through the game again on a New Game or New Game+ to play with them. Q: Is there a secret member? A: Yes. On top of members 1 through 15, there is also member No. 00. You can only play him if you've played ALL of the other members first. If you missed a member you will not be able to play member No. 00. Q: Are there a limited supply of lottery tickets? A: YES! I can't stress this enough. NEVER waste a lottery ticket! Always save before you play the lottery! That way if you don't get the prize you want you can just reload your game. Wasting tickets is especially dangerous in the first half of the game, as all of the members are MISSABLE, and if you waste tickets you may not have enough left to play all of the members, causing you to miss some, and thus keeping you from ever playing No. 00 in that perticular game. If you want to play it safe then NEVER use more than 1 ticket per member until you reach No. 00. Once you reach No. 00 you're safe and you can do whatever you want. Q: So how many tickets are there total? A: This guide says 23, but there are probably more. Q: Is it really a lottery? A: Yes... No... It depends on how you look at it. If you mean in the absolute literal sense, then no. You spin the the Judgement Ring, and try to stop the needle where you want. Now you can look at it another way too, in the sense that the Judgement Ring as a tool for executing actions doesn't really exist. The game explains that the Judgement Ring represents the flow of life, with Motive as the conscience of life, Action as the possibility of life, and Outcome as the destiny of life. With that you could look at it as if it is an actual traditional Lottery where it's all random, and you only win by chance, and the Judgement Ring is a tool used to alter destiny, where if you hit the Red mark, then destiny makes you beat the odds, and win the ultimate 1 in 100,000,000 odds prize. (Of course the problem with that theory is that some members actually talk about the Ring. Then again, that doesn't hold much ground either because the people in this game brake character freaquently.) Really though, look at it whichever way you want. Q: It's too hard! Is there a trick to it?! A: Not really. Practice, and patience are the 2 big factors to being successful with the Judgment ring. Just keep working at it, and make sure to save often, so you don't waste any tickets. ------------------------ LOTTERY TICKET LOCATIONS ------------------------ This is pretty straight forward.

Name: (The name of the member in question.) Location: Where the member in question can be found. Missable?: (Whether or not the member is missable, and at what point he/she does become missable.) Prizes: (Here I list all of the prizes, their colours, and their function.) Notes: Just notes. No. 15 Name: Building-loving Man Location: Fengtian (Next to the fountain) Missable?: Unreachable after completion of Fengtian Sewers! Prizes: [Red] Jade Lariat (The width of the hit area increases 20%) [Yellow] B. Tortoise Fang (Ring sweeps twice as fast, but attack doubles) [Aqua] TalismanOfMercy (Restores unconscious person's HP 50%) [Green] Pure Seed (Restores 6 SP) [White] Tissues (Almost useless. Use to get the Air Gravestone) Notes: Do NOT get the B. Tortoise Fang! Anything that makes your ring sweep faster = BAD! Also, after the explosion No. 15 will move to the inside of the Fengtian shop. No. 14 Name: Filthy Samo Location: In Dalian's Restaurant Missable?: Unreachable after boarding the Smuggler's boat! Prizes: [Red] Pocket Watch (Renders Judgement Ring abnormalities ineffectual) [Yellow] W. Tiger Hair (User's hit area is cut in half, but Attack doubles) [Aqua] TeaOfTheHealer (Restores 75 HP and 50 MP) [Green] Pure Leaf (Restores 3 SP) [White] Tissues (Almost useless. Use to get the Air Gravestone) Notes: Samo will play with you the morning after you beat Yamaraja: Wind. No. 13 Name: Courier Subordinate (Sergeant Kato) Location: The Smuggler's Boat, on the Bridge Missable?: Unreachable after battle with Li Li! Prizes: [Red] Iron Clogs (Agl down 15 points, but half indicator speed) [Yellow] B. Dragon Horn (All allies' hit areas are cut in half, Atk doubles) [Aqua] Witch's Broth (Restores 50 MP and 3 SP) [Green] Pure Leaf (Restores 3 SP) [White] Tissues (Almost useless. Use to get the Air Gravestone) Notes: You can play with Kato after the monsters appear. No. 12 Name: Sharp Van Location: The smuggler's boat, in the cabin (After the boat enters Shanghai) Missable?: Unreachable after completion of Kuihai Tower! Prizes: [Red] Star Card (Enables discount ring at shops.) [Yellow] R. Phoenix Talon (All allies rings twice as fast: Attack doubles) [Aqua] TeaOfTheHolyOne (Restores 300 HP and 200 MP) [Green] Pure Seed (Restores 6 SP) [White] Tissues (Almost useless. Use to get the Air Gravestone) Notes: Star Card = AWESOME! Don't let it slip through your fingers! No. 11 Name: Master Xiaofang Location: Ni Wan Palace Missable?: Unreachable after meeting Master Xifa Prizes: [Red] Flash Badge (Agl up 25 points, but 2X indicator speed) [Yellow] Kirin Scale (User's hit area doubles; Indicator sweeps half-speed) [Aqua] Priest's Wine (Restores 100 MP and 6 SP) [Green] Pure Seed (Restores 6 SP) [White] Tissues (Almost useless. Use to get the Air Gravestone) Notes: Xiaofang as a lottery member is hidden on the Yellow level (that means before the red portal), in the very bottom of one of the dead-ends. Also, the Flash Badge is an awful, awful, awful accessory, now is the time to get that Tissues you need for the Air Gravestone later on. No. 10 Name: Invincible Nee Location: Kowloon Fortress Missable?: Unreachable after Kuihai Tower Prizes: [Red] Mind's Eye (Hit area invisible, but physical attack doubles) [Yellow] Moon Swallow (Makes all allies' attacks all critical hits) [Aqua] TalismanOfWisdom (Restores unconscious person's HP 30% and 50 MP) [Green] Pure Seed (Restores 6 SP) [White] Tissues (Almost useless. Use to get Air Gravestone) Notes: In my opinion the Mind's eye is the best item in the game, so don't miss it. It takes a little practice to get used to an invisible Judgment Ring, but once you get the hang of of it you will be basically unstoppable. (Although you can say goodbye to perfects for your regular attacks, heh.) I reccomend giving this to Yuri. Furthermore, Nee is also missable if you answered Deihuai wrong when Alice is hooked into Spirit Machine thing. The correct answers are the first choices. (Yes, I know you wanted to flirt with him, but too bad.)

Use to get Air Gravestone) Notes: The Brsrkr Earrings is another accessory that helps make Yuri even more unstoppable then he already is. No. 07 Name: Hunter Warda Location: Bistritz Missable?: No. Prizes: [Red] Oracle Earrings (MP increases 20%) [Yellow] Seal of Life (Max HP increases 3 to 5 points) [Aqua] Tea of the Holy One (Restores 300 HP and 200 MP) [Green] Mana Root (Restores 200 MP) [White] Tissues (Almost useless.

No. 03 Name: Pot-lover Macken Location: Orphanage, in the Pot that Jack used to summon Mammon. Missable?: No. Prizes: [Red] Crucifix (Renders Status abnormalities ineffectual) [Yellow] Seal of Wisdom (Int increases 1 to 3 points) [Aqua] Pure Extract (Fully restores SP) [Green] Pure Root (Restores 10 SP) [White] Tissues (Almost useless.
