STORY                   [STRY]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 "During destolate times on the 'Sea of Sand,' Drifters venture across the
 vast lands of Filgaia searching for fortune and adventure. Amidst the deserts
 lie cities erected from eroded rock and scavenged wood. Towns that a few call
 home provide rest and solitude for the many travelers of the barren wasteland.

 Tales of mystic relics that harness unmatched powers spread across the land.
 While some view the items as treasure, others have deciphered a secret
 bringing unlimited power.

 Meanwhile, one object of mythical stature attracts four Drifters to a common
 place. These four strangers discover the strength in working as a team.
 Shortly thereafter they learn of an ancient prophecy determining the future
 of their eroded homeland. Setting asside their differences, they roam the
 lands and unlock the knowledge and mystical forces making their adventure
 their destiny."

CHARACTERS              [CHRC]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 There are four characters in the game, all with strengths, weaknesses, and
 a unique force ability -- their "defining" skill. First, their best stats.
 [See the Stat Growth section for an example of how their values stack up.]

STAT OVERVIEW           [STTO]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 There's plenty of stats to be mindful of! Note that Force Points (FP) are
 equal to one's level at the start of battle, making the milestones 25, 50,
 75, and 100 (for Force Ability use).

 | LCK  | Luck       | Affects item drops, trap disarming, etc.              |
 | LV   | Level      | Character's level (raise it by accumulating EXP)      |
 | MAG  | Magic      | Affects magical damage                                |

 | SHT  | Shooting   | Affects ARM's built-in damage capabilities            |
 | VIT  | Vitality   | Used to cure allies after-battle (0 VIT = no curing!) |
 | WGT  | Weight     | Affects FP needed for each hit in a Gatling           |
 |______|____________|_______________________________________________________|

  NOTE: MTC is raised by defeating enemies with summons. As it goes on, it's
        harder to raise, so defeat many hard enemies at once (Chupacabras in
        The Abyss?) or use Growth Eggs.

  NOTE: WGT affects Gatlings. Normally, each hit in a Gatling costs 20 FP, but
        by reducing WGT, that cost is lowered (1/per upgrade). For instance,
        by giving Virginia a 5BLT/10WGT upgrade setup, she can do a 10-hit
        Gatling at 100FP.

ASK/SEARCH SYSTEM       [ASYS]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Finding dungeons depends on two systems: ASK and Search. Understanding these
 concepts is critical in progressing the plot, so commit 'em to memory. Here's
 the rundown.

 ASK ---- This function is used in conversation. Some dungeons cannot be found
          on the world map without getting a verbal clue, and NPCs will drop
          hints about whereabouts/locations. These are written in red. What
          the ASK System does is let one probe deeper into special words NPCs
          talk about (these appear in green). Press O-button when a green
          word comes up and a character expounds on that subject. While it can
          be used for unearthing dungeon clues, it's also used in regular
          conversation as well, letting one get insight into others' motives.

 SEARCH - Anyone familiar with Wild Arms 2 should already know what this is!
          Pressing Square on the world map unleashes sonar in the area, and
          if there's something that can be found -- proper conditions filled,
          of course -- then it appears on the map. Dungeons are accessed in
          this way, but regular items are lying around, as well as signposts
          and, later, Telepath Towers.

MIGRANT/ENCOUNTER GAUGE [MGRN]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Migrant Level (MLV) is a form of cancelling battle on the field or overworld.
 When an exclamation point (!) comes up, one of three things happen, depending
 on the icon's color:

 Green - Encounter can be cancelled w/o affecting ECN Gauge
 White - Encounter, if cancelled, will lower ECN Gauge some
 Red --- Encounter happens automatically (can't be cancelled)

 Green is the best situation, while red is the worst. Raising MLV is possible
 by finding Migrant Seals, which allow one to cancel more encounters for free,
 while ones that can't be cancelled ciphon less from the ECN Gauge.

 So what is the ECN Gauge? It's basically the Migrant Gauge's "currency" --
 when a normal battle is cancelled, part of it's expended. When the Migrant
 Gauge is empty, battles can no longer be cancelled and battles will be the
 bad kind (most likely ambush/danger situations). Finding rare Booster Kits
 will raise the ECN Gauge by +10 each time.

 NOTE: A little known (useless) fact is that when a green/white icon comes up,
       battle can be initiated by double-tapping O-button really fast. Of
       course, battle starts either way if it's not cancelled, so this isn't

ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 There's a few types of battle that can be experienced, and here they are.

 NORMAL ---: Most battles will be like this. No force has the upper hand and
             things move alone by RFX order.

 AMBUSH ---: The enemy's version of "Initiative," where they get first crack
             while the allies have to take the abuse. This scenario can be
             completely eliminated by having everyone with the Eagle Eye
             ability (see: Weather Vane).

 DANGER ---: A bad scenario, basically the entire enemy force against a single
             character. Said character will have to put up with the beatdown
             until the rest of the allies arrive turns later. [If killed in
             this scenario and restarted, the other allies are present.] This
             situation becomes more frequent in high-risk places, which it's
             prudent to have the Eagle Eye PS on everyone (see: Weather Vane).

 INITIATIVE: The only scenario that gives the allies an upper hand; basically
             a free shot at all enemies without them getting a turn. Chances
             of this aren't that good, but can be boosted by the Initiative
             skill (see: 10-Gal Hat).


STATUS ABNORMALITIES    [STTS]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 WA3 has a lot of statuses, good and bad, to pay attention to.
 ___________ _________________________ ______________ ______________ ________

|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|
| Amnesia   | Can't gain experience   | Memo Pen     | Toy Hammer   |   Yes  |
| Bronze    | Can't take action       | Holy Ankh    | Magicleanser |   No   |
| Confusion | Attack indiscriminately | Clear Chime  | Pinwheel     |   No   |
| Disease   | Can't heal self         | Hazel Sprig  | Medicine     |   Yes  |
| Fallen    | Zero HP -- can't act!   | Holy Grail   | Revive Fruit |   No   |
| Glass     | If hit, can't battle!   | Soul Feather | Seed Powder  |   No   |
| Misery    | Can't use Force/Arcana  | Heart Leaf   | Peppy Acorn  |   Yes  |
| Paralysis | Can't take action       | Blue Bracer  | Pixie Dust   |   No   |

| Sleep     | Can't take action       | Alarm Clock  | Breath Mint  |   No   |
|___________|_________________________|______________|______________|________|

 NOTE: "Fallen" is a status effect, but when a character dies, they're also
       considered "Fallen." The reason this is mentioned is because Status
       Lock and Status Guard say they protect someone from all statuses but
       Fallen -- they're talking about the zero-HP status in that case.

 Some arcana can be considered a "status" as well, since it bestows a certain
 effect and has a set duration, so see that section for more info.

TIPS N' TRICKS          [TPST]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 • CASH! It's pretty easy to find later on, but in the early going, there's but
   a handful of methods to do. There's two helpful ones: (1) defeating enemies,
   particularly Jelly Blobs in Serpent's Coils, with elemental attacks/summons
   and selling the gems created for 100g/per (2) selling Gella Cards for 1500g
   each. Jelly Blobs are weak to all elements and die easily, so they're a
   good way to boost MTC, plus they appear in 3/4/6s so it's quite lucrative.
   For Gella Cards, there's no use wasting them on enemies who give out less
   than 750g normally, so they're a quick way to boost the reserves.

 • ITEM OVERLOAD! If you're a completionist, be careful about carrying the
   max number of items. If you open a chest and can't take the item, it's easy
   to think y'did, and that can screw up the treasure checklist (which you'd
   do well to keep). Instead of carrying 99, I recommend carrying about 90 --
   that's usually sufficient. No point in fighting battles just to waste items,
   yo!

 • DUPLICATORS! These magical keys unlock sealed doors, treasure chests, and
   even some bosses -- but they're also used to unlock normal books. Although
   there's just enough (40) to unlock everything that requires it, saving the
   duplicators for useful things, instead of dumb ol' normal books, helps a
   lot. [It's possible to unlock a book, read it for the password/info, then
   reset and go on your way -- no harm done!]

 • SYNCHRONIZER! This oft-overlooking arcana can be astoundingly fun. What it
   does is make the user and the target(s) share status abnormalities. Say
   Gallows uses the skill with Extension -- if he's poisoned, all foes he's
   synched with will be as well. The downside is that, if his statuses are
   alleviated, so are the foes. [Synchronizer is not a normal status and can't
   be removed by Eraser, I think.] Using this method is a good way to inflict
   statuses one normally wouldn't be able to, such as paralysis or confusion.
   Just make sure the targets are susceptible or the ally takes a beating for
   nothing!

 |ŻŻŻŻ|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|  The front door can't be jimmied, so Jet'll have
 | 01 | Migrant Seal*    |  to circle counterclockwise around the temple's
 | 02 | Heal Berry       |  mount. Reach the northern jump-down point for a
 | 03 | 600 Gella        |  mini-tutorial, then meander to the summit, which
 | 04 | Mini Carrot      |  is barricaded. Jet's tool (Boomerang) can slap it
 | 05 | Heal Berry       |  down easily. Inside, approach the treasure to fall
 | 06 | Revive Fruit [2] |  through the floor. [The treasure, a Migrant Seal,
 | 07 | Gimel Coin       |  can be obtained later with the help of the Steady
 |____|__________________|  Doll.]

 After landing, move around the room and collect chests #2-3. To open the
 exit, hit the globular switch with Jet's tool -- these types of devices will
 be used frequently in the hours to come. The hallways beyond are lined with
 spear traps, which rise out of the ground to impale thieves and robbers. To
 bypass, dash straight past them. There'll be a scene at the temple's "foyer,"
 after which move along to the eastern hallways, which lead downwards.

 In the next chamber, Jet notes that he can grab onto some steel latticework
 jutting out of the wall (press X-button underneath to grab on). Jet can also
 flip onto the mesh's upside when the player presses X-button on the periphery,
 which is helpful as it's faster than swinging. Get item #4, then swing to
 the exit. [As you may've guessd, those weird 4-hole tiles are spikes, so be
 careful not to hit 'em.]

 Past the next hall, another climbing course -- this one requires Jet to get
 to the top, then jump down to the exit. Get Item #5 first, of course. The
 hallways beyond are still filled with spear traps, although some lateral
 ones come in the brightly-lit chamber (which also have items #6 and #7). A
 Gimel Coin has two purposes: it lets one save their game anywhere, or if they
 get a game over, it can be expended to let them retry the battle. There'll be
 a boss battle after a downstairs scene, so...save, perhaps?

  Pretty easy going here. Its physical attack is single-digit damage while 
  Baking Breath barely breaks mid-teens. In fact, winning this battle is
  impossible until Jet gets 25 FP -- accumulated by taking damage or attacking
  physically -- at which time his Accelerator is available. This allows him to
  act immediately regardless of RFX or turn order. Use this on the Tatzelwurm
  to instantly destroy him!

 Try to leave and Pike will show you the shortcut to the exit. It's just a
 couple of mesh-wire climbing rooms, although the last (2nd) one has a couple
 switches that have to be mashed to lower segments to cling on. If you're in
 a bind, remember that Jet can control the boomerang once it's thrown; banking
 the thing off walls can drop the tool right onto switches to activate them!

 Jet's prologue closes as they re-enter that initial room and Pike's reunited
 with the townspeople he calls family... Save at the prompt!

 #3's chest. Backtrack one screen and take the long northern loop-around,
 containing some ENC (encounter gauge) gems. Back south, collect Item #4 and
 make a westward exit. Spy, then bomb the hidden passage leading to Items #5
 and 6. What's that large device, you ask? It contains a hidden boss (Arioch)

  The boss only has two attacks, both physical in nature. Bite Strike inflicts
  paltry damage, and while Glider Dive's a bit better, it often misses. When
  the boss becomes airborne, use the force ability "Lock On" to finish battle.

 Afterwards, a few scenes, Clive, now poisoned, will have to return to the
 entrance. The more he walks around the more he's damaged, so it pays to take
 shortcuts, i.e. jumping down ledges to previous spots. The easiest way is to
 go to Item #3's ledge and leap off, saving time. [Before the trek, there'll
 be a small tutorial in using bombs en masse to destroy a boulder.]

 Back in town (Ballack Rise), there'll be a few more scenes before a rematch.

 Basically a repeat of the same battle, except Goldrake can use Toxic Breath
 and it's always airborne, making normal attacks do nothing. The item Borgnine
 tossed to Clive earlier was an Antidote, and can cure poison, which helps out
 here. Glider Dive will still miss a lot, building up FP rather easily. Use
 Lock On 2-3 times, burying this caustic critter.

|    RFX - 21    |  Unlike the other prologues, Gallows' journey actually has
|    AIM - 13    |  its start in the Baskar Colony instead of the dungeon. So,
|    EVA - 14    |  before blowing this joint, there's two things to do. The
|________________|  first involves talking to Halle at the center shrine.

 The second thing is talking to Ellen for some items. After the conversation
 is done, Gallows gets an amount of items that corresponds to how he answered.
 For the best reward (5 Heal Berry, 3 Gimel Coin), answer honestly:

 - "How'd you guess?"
 - "Yeah. You wanna help me out?"
 - "I wanna run away and be free."

 Other items: (1) Revive Fruit in Gallows' house, upstairs barrel (2) Heal
 Berry in town storehouse (3) Heal Berry in other large house, upstairs. Also,
 there's free healing by sleeping upstairs in Gallows' house.

 Before leaving, talk to Cordell near the entrance -- he'll inform our runaway
 about the Search system, which finds yet-hidden locations on the world map.
 THIS MUST BE DONE OR YOU CANNOT FIND THE NEXT DUNGEON. Now, to find the Fallen
 Sanctuary, travel southwest to the beach, where the canyon bends. Follow the
 southern cliff eastward, and "search" along the way. Pretty easy overall.

 until much, much later. The penultimate (northern) room has a crapton of
 candles, but a continuous spinning stream of frost will solve the puzzle quite
 easily. Finally,

  Analyze shows these buffoons are weak to water, but if one dies, the others
  just split in half to create more, so there's always 4 on the field. There's
  only one way to win and that's by using Gallows' Extension force ability,
  which makes a selected arcana affect all appropriate targets. In this case,
  use Refrigerate or Pressure to slaughter the KPs en masse, before any get a
  turn to regenerate. [And no, killing more will not increase EXP/GELLA amnts.]

 With the Ark Scepter in hand, backtrack through the dungeon until a...jail
 scene plays. Use the newly-acquired scepter (from the menu), then talk with
 Shane to exit.

 Hit the switch that leads into the 2nd screen, where a mandatory fight with
 some Gobs plays. Although Virginia is ridiculously poor in all categories
 (except RFX), she shouldn't have much trouble putting these saps out of their
 misery. Since she's the only person who starts at Lv1, it helps to gain a few
 levels to boost her survivability.

 In a sideroom nearby, get Items #1 and #2 in a crate and chest, respectively.
 The Tindercrest is a projectile tool that lights things on fire, particularly
 torches! Use it on the snuffed torch in the hallway to proceed. In the next
 large room, the floor will have numerous holes in it and many tiles give way
 when ran over. Solution: carefully walk over them by holding O-button. [The
 ladder that leads to Items #11-14 is not accessible until much later on.]

 Further down the corridor, Virginia comes to a balcony. Spy an unlit candle;
 when that problem's rectified, the door to Item #4 opens. Repeat this same
 method to get Item #5. When that business' finished, visit the eastern stair
 and hit the switch to Item #5, north of there (and bypassed earlier).

 At the ground floor, a mini-tutorial on finding suspicious things plays: hold
 R2 and press X-button to locate them. In this case, it's the weird crankwheel.
 Grasp the object and twist it clockwise (with analog stick or d-pad), opening
 the storehouse. Search carefully for items #6-10 -- the Duplicator and Right
 Half are mandatory items.

 Back outside, inspect the sealed door to find out it's a Duplicator Door! Use
 the titular item (from the inventory) just obtained to unlock it. South leads
 to the boss' sanctuary.

 Another fight where the boss can only die under a certain condition; in this
 case, it's when Virginia uses Gatling on it. Virginia's decent EVA will help
 her dodge most attacks, so just wail on the gob-faced freak for ~5 attack
 turns. After a scene regarding its perseverance, select 'Gatling' from the
 force command menu and execute its rapid-fire technique! That's the only way
 to defeat it, naturally. [Virginia's high bullet count make her a natural at
 this technique throughout the game.]

  Multiblast is the only attack worth worrying about, and both Gallows/Virginia
  can heal everyone in one go (with Extension + Heal or Mystic + Heal Berry,
  respectively). Janus' lackeys aren't up to his caliber really, although
  Gillius TH12/23 can do damage in the 30s. Lock On and Accelerator will be of
  great help in getting this fight over quickly. Remember that if Janus is KO'd
  first, the other two's EXP/GELLA/Drops are missed! [Y'may have to baby
  Virginia here in order to avoid _not_ wasting Revive Fruits; I have her guard
  a lot, personally.]

 After thumping Janus and his crew, they escape. Everyone disembarks from the
 train and they decide to accompany Clive, who's on a mission to deliver the
 item everyone wanted to swipe. Y'remember where Baskar Colony is, right? Take
 a hike NW of the train tracks to where the land gets greener, then follow on
 past Fallen Sanctuary back to the destination.

 ---

 Back at Gallows' hometown, Halle gives the reward of [1200 GELLA] for Clive's
 professional job. She says the Ark Scepter is a staff that transmits and can
 receive willpower, an instrument ideal for communicating with guardians. The
 reward: the mediums that allow use of summons and Arcana (like Gallows has
 been doing up 'til now).

 One can now learn about the ASK system (Active Selected Keyword) in convos by
 pressing Square when a green phrase or word comes up. This often cues extra
 information or, at times, integral directions for moving forward in the game.
 Also, as Shane mentions, if you have a different party leader (the person you
 see walking around the field; switch with L2), you can hear different speech
 than normal. This usually applies in places that have meaning to a specific
 character -- for instance, walking around as Gallows in Baskar has different
 dialogue than normal.

                          continue. Leveling up a bit is suggested, as there
 are going to be four bosses coming up. The desert area across the land bridge
 has more "difficult" enemies than your normal fare, thus more EXP, etc. There
 is a free inn in Baskar if you need to heal up.

 This time we're just going to the "rooftop" Guardians area, up the fixed
 stairway in the first chamber. A few notes before:

 • Virginia can die really easily if she isn't similarly leveled to her allies,
   so screw around a bit (particularly near world map train tracks) and help
   her out. On the flipside, the Moor Gault medium has the Revive skill which
   is great for saving Revive Fruits.

 • Enemies on the world map drop lots of Heal Berries. Newcomers often kvetch
   about how hard it they are to come by, particularly later on, so now's a
   good time to get some.

 • The (3) chests left behind when Gallows first came through still can't be
   obtained. The Changecrest tool is needed to get inside, for reference.

 At this time there are four stairways that lead to large monoliths. Inspect
 any one at this time and choose to "show your power," beginning a boss fight.
 It doesn't matter which one you start with, really, although Schturdark has
 a healing ability and that will be useful. Kickstart it with him first...

  Have everyone guard the first turn to reduce Assault Tide's damage -- it's
  only used this once. Schturdark's DEF is quite good for an early boss so
  Virginia won't be going much unless she relies on Gatling. Importantly, 
  Big Press is the best way to build FP -- it's a counter and often misses,
  even on low-EVA characters. Because of this, people like Jet and Clive will
  be the most helpful here (Gallows' shotgun is hit-or-miss). Since there's no
  elemental weaknesses to play off of, this first of four battles will be the
  toughest. It gets easier in a sec.

 A win nets one the [MEDIUM: Aqua Wisp], which is identical to the medium that
 Gallows had equipped, at least in the Arcana portion. Since Extension allows
 one to apply Arcana to all allies/enemies, it's a smart move to equip it back
 on Gallows for the next battle. It'll be against the elemental opposite: Moor
 Gault. His monolith is right across the way from Schturdark's.

  It uses Vapor Blast at the beginning of the battle, which is to be expected
  now. Make sure to defend as it can KO Jet/Virginia right off the bat! MG's
  defense is pretty crappy, though, and Gallows can dig in right where it
  hurts with repeat Refridgerates. Vulcan Beak, the physical attack counter,
  hits for about ~60 and doesn't have as a hit% as Schturdark's similar
  attack. You may want to waste a few Heal Berries at the start to get
  everyone back in good health 'fore the real battle gets underway. Cremate's
  damage is negligable when compared to everything else, also. Remember: Vapor
  Blast can be used more than once! Use Mystic/Accelerator together to manage
  party upkeep.

 Stick the [MEDIUM: Fiery Rage] on someone, preferably a character who can
 live awhile -- the bearer learns "Revive" which can save a few Revive Fruits
 from being eaten. It's good for Gallows as he can spread some nice buffs on
 the party.

  He leads off with Planet Breaker, so defend first thing. His DEF isn't as
  great as Schturdark's but is better than Moor Gault's, to give y'an idea. He
  counters physical attacks with Megasmash, which is rather mediocre compared
  to the hard-hitters we've seen before. Cast Fragile when Shield is used, and
  Refridgerate when possible to get through this quickly. The one thing that
  sets the boss apart is that Planet Breaker gets used more than others' techs
  that hit everyone. Luckily it's easy to keep one's HP in tiptop shape, since
  the boss typically uses Shield.

 The [MEDIUM: Terra Roar] is received at this time. Protect/Decelerate works
 well in conjunction with Extension, but it's up to you, really. Last boss is
 right across from Grudiev's slab...

  Defend against the first-turn Hi-Speed Ripper and get ready to slap it with
  Decelerate, which undoes Turbulence's effect. Sonic Scratch doesn't seem to
  activate as much as the others, but in return, it's got a better hit%. When
  possible, use Extension + Shield to reduce the damage from its physical hits,
  while Petrify plays off its elemental weakness.

 The [MEDIUM: Gale Claw] is now obtained! As you try to leave, Gallows talks
 about using the force ability Summon, which is selected from the appropriate
 menu. The more FP used, the more damaging it is. Summons can only be executed
 a # of times; the MTC gauge governs this.

 ---

 Return to Baskar Colony and Halle will unlock the mediums' Personal Skills,
 as well as the inherent power boosts they give. Every time a level-up takes
 place, that person gets 1 PS point to be used on those medium skills. Later
 on, it will be possible to find "gears" that grant different personal skills;
 these will be fixed onto mediums at this time. More on this later.

 Talk to Roykman to get a hint about a town on the "shore to the southwest,"
 being Jolly Roger. He skidaddles, so it's time to do the same. Return to the
 world map and head back to the railroad tracks. See the small land bridge by
 there? Southwest of there is a small beach where Jolly Roger is located.

 NOTE: From now on, locations one must search for will have x/y-coordinates
       listed in their section. These are to be used in conjunction with the
       World Screen Roykman sells, which shows the world map and one's own
       x/y-coordinate location. It costs 5000g so don't feel obligated to get
       it just yet -- it's easier two dungeons down the line.

 This small port town borders a sea of sand, but that doesn't mean there isn't
 stuff to do here! First things first: loot this town! [Just listen to that
 wonderful town theme "Scenery from Everyday". The best in the game!]

   • [MIGRANT SEAL ] - Bomb the largest crate by the town entrance
   • [GIMEL COIN   ] - In the saloon, the barrel by the countertop
   • [HEAL BERRY   ] - Go up saloon's stairway; barrel in the hall
   • [MINI CARROT  ] - Go up saloon's stairway, down hall; barrel on balcony
   • [DRAGON FOSSIL] - Go up saloon's stairway, down stairs; barrel in ARMsmth

 The Migrant Seal increases your "Migrant Level." As it increases, the cost of
 cancelling monster encounters decreases, and you can avoid more powerful
 enemies. Y'know those exclamation points that appear when monsters skirmishes
 are imminent? A higher Migrant Level can make those turn green, which allows
 free cancellation!

NOTE: UPDATING ARMS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Jolly Roger has the first Armsmith, which allows one to customize the guns
 each person carries. Each can be upgraded a total of 15 times total, so one
 really has to think best about each character's angle before shelling out the
 cash. [It's possible to default someone's upgrades and do them all over
 again but this only means one wasted money without thinking!]. Here's how I
 suggest upgrading:

 Virginia: Upgrading her attack is often a waste of cash. However, giving her
           10 WGT and 5 BLT will maximize her Gatling potency at 100 FP. [WGT
           lowers the cost needed to use each hit in Gatling, BLT gives her
           more shots to be used with the command.] Like Clive, she'll almost
           never miss unless the enemy boosts a stat, so there's no reason to
           improve her AIM. [Virginia's Gatlings may not be that awesome early
           on but once the Valiant arcana is learned, it becomes a murdering
           machine.]

 Jet ----: Jet gets one of the best weapons in the game, so it's only fair to
           play off its attack. Aiming for 10 SHT is a good short-term goal,
           and after, decide whether to spend the next 5 points on SHT or CRT.

 Clive --: Go purely for SHT -- he almost never misses. He can be handicapped
           a bit with only two bullets, so 13 SHT/2 BLT ain't half bad.
 
 Gallows : The shotgun has decent attack power but has aiming trouble, but a
           player can rectify that by boosting his AIM or CRT (critical hits
           always hit 8 times). The least costly route is to put five in AIM,
           CRT, and SHT, although 10 SHT/5 CRT works as well. It's worth
           noting that Gallows' main strength is magic, so he should mostly be
           attacking in order to build FP, not do damage...but every little
           bit helps!

 If you need extra cash, kill enemies with elemental attacks/summons to earn
 'gems.' These can be sold for 100/per, which is helpful throughout the game!
 [Non-elemental arcana doesn't leave anything, however.] A good way is go is
 weakening all enemies en masse, then having everyone summon. All gems can be
 sold for the same cash.

NEXT DESTINATION
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 When ready, mosey on over to the local watering hole and 'Chat' with Hannah.
 It costs 150 gella for some leads. After the worst "goodbye" celebration in
 history, everyone decides to keep banding together. Outside, an "informant"
 talks about the Ruins of Memory nearby, where the Eternal Sparkle is kept,
 supposedly. It's southwest of town, on the cape.

|_________________|  North still, Item #3 behind a glass barrier, and keeping
       _|^|_         that course, the dead-end room with Items #4-6. Hang a
      |     |        path east and the team's locked in! The NE of the four
      |START|        statues is a crumbling wreck and bombing it reveals the
      |_   _|        exit switch.

ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|  The team is now in the northeastern wing of the museum.
1 - Heal Berry    |  Go south a bit and flip the switch, making a shortcut
2 - 1500 Gella    |  from the main hall's corridor. North is a library with
3 - Gella Card    |  no way forward...or is there? Bomb the wall underneath
4 - Dragon Fossil |  the minotaur statue, then get Items #7 and 8 (#9 needs
5 - Lucky Card    |  a Duplicator). [If you skip #9 remember to return later!]
6 - Gimel Coin    | 
7 - Growth Egg    |  The Memo Pen is the first 'gear' obtained, and can be
8 - Memo Pen      |  attached to a medium in order to teach an ability. This
9 - Name Tag [3]  |  one protects against Amnesia. Note that once a gear has
__________________|  been placed, removing it permanently destroys it.

 To exit the treasure room, throw a boomerang across the gap and hit a switch
 tucked behind the pillar. North, the final puzzle's rather simple: extinguish
 the blue flame Freezer Doll style, step on the newly-lowered platform, then
 Tindercrest the blue flame back into existence. Save before proceeding.

  Janus must be the first target defeated, despite one's instincts to go after
  Romero (the weakest) -- this is because Mr. Cascade heals his comrades 300 HP
  if they're damaged, regardless of turn order. The Trinity attack can do 100+
  damage to one target, so while it's not that scary for Clive or Gallows, the
  other two allies can be 2HKO'd by it, so keep on guard. Once Janus is downed,
  the other two fall ridiculously easily.

 When the goofball twins fall, it's time to hit the dusty trail again. [You
 can get the dumb Name Tag duplicator chest inside, but I suggest saving it
 for something actually useful.] Return to Jolly Roger and use the ASK System
 on Dennis, to find out the Midland Station is to the northwest. Basically,
 use the search system along the tracks and it'll be rather easy to locate.
 The one-way fare is 120g -- talk to Tony once the train arrives.

 In the new region's station (Westwood), chat with Rick to learn the town of
 Claiborne is east of there.

 A tiny stopover in a tiny town. First, loot the place for freebies:

 • Revive Fruit - barrel in ARMsmith's
 • Revive Fruit - breakable outdoor crate
 • Duplicator --- hay trough at horse stalls
 • Heal Berry --- barrel behind saloon
 • Pinwheel ----- barrel in house near entrance
 • Gimel Coin --- barrel, upstairs of horse stalls
 • Mini Carrot -- barrel, under stablehouse staircase

 To learn the next dungeon's whereabouts, talk to Otto the armsmith to get

 the tracks and search the strangely empty part of the foothills.

 The first order of business is moving to the room with Items #1-2, which also
 has a special switch inside. Since this dungeon's supposed to be confusing,
 the switch color-codes doorways to tell if one's been through them before.
 There are three markers: (1) an empty ring indicates an unexplored room (2)
 Blue circle means unexplored room (2) Yellow indicates last explored room.
 The switch can be turned off if this is too confusing, also.

 Object two is going to the west side of the place, where the three empty
 chests are. Although they're worthless item-wise, they DO contribute to the
 320 total, so there's no reason to leave 'em be. From there, reach "A" on the
 map, which is the tri-segmented room. Jumping down to the door switch is the
 only way to proceed, and it starts a scene with a rival gang of drifters who
 capitalize on the situation. D'oh! Backtrack around and take the newly opened
 door.

 "B" is a room with criss-crossing paths. Make way north by hitting the switch
 a few time, steal Items #3-4, and loop counterclockwise (west), toward the
 antechamber where Items #5-7 are. The Clear Chime protects against confusion
 and will be useful for the upcoming battle, so equip and max it on someone.
 [You can skip the duplicator chest if you want; it's just a dumb Nectar. Be
 sure to return later on though, as a lone chest can be a source of anxietyf
 for someone wanting to do the Black Box sidequest.]

 On the way back to the criss-cross room, make sure to hit the southern switch
 which opens a shortcut back to the previous rooms. As the team tries to make
 it east, the female drifter will thwart the trap and force everyone to go
 back around. The next-encountered switch is frozen in the "off" position. 
 Defrost it with a Tindercrest, flip it, then freeze it with Gallows' doll --
 if y'don't, then the female drifter will try to deactivate it, forcing a redo.
 Save before entering the room at the foot of the stairs...

  Afro, the bodyguard, must be taken out first lest he heal his comrades 300HP.
  To expedite the process, use a fire-elemental attack on him -- his hair will
  catch fire and decrease his health each turn. Taking him out quickly is good
  since he's got a crapload of good moves, Psycho Crack in particular which
  can inflict confusion (you may remember this from the first Wild Arms game).
  The other baddies aren't as tough but their persistence gradually stacks up,
  so defeat Cat(?) and Timid Boy quickly. Surprisingly, Blonde is probably the
  least threatening of the bunch, no matter how her personality says otherwise.
  This battle can be reasonably hard if weapons haven't been upgraded, or there
  are no Pinwheels (cures confusion) in the inventory. Be prepared, and use
  Extension + Shield when able! [Defeat Blonde last for max EXP/GELLA.]

 With the goober patrol beaten up, go north and collect Items #8-9 and save
 again, because...

  This is a repeat of the Ruins of Memory battle, except everyone has more HP
  and Janus can't be the first foe downed -- he switches places with allies if
  they're still around. Thus, he must be KO'd last. Romero should be the first
  to go as he's the weakest and has the lowest HP (use Fragile to expedite).
  Use Extension + Shield when possible to cut down on Trinity's damage; with it
  out of the way, things are a lot easier. 
 
 Before fleeing, Janus drops a hint that there's an ancient tower southwest of
 Claiborne, on the peninsula's tip. Naturally that's the next spot to go! Item
 #10 is obtained during the scenes here.

 NOTE: Using the jelly blob method of getting cash, if you haven't bought the

 In the 2nd screen puzzle, move the two initial blocks to make a "bridge" to
 the third block, which can then be pushed off to give access to Item #1 or
 the exit. Upstairs is a small crankwheel course, where one can step on a
 button to lower platforms, then use the valve to get back up. Items #2-4 are
 in an anteroom but require doing the first part of the course over again.

  If you payed attention to a bookshelf in Claiborne, it would have stated that
  the boss' shell is capable of deterioration in the same way steel brittles
  when exposed to rapid temperature fluctuation. In short, heating and then
  immediately cooling is its weakness. Gameplay-wise, this is done by using a
  fire-elemental skill (Cremate) and then an ice one (Refrigerate). This will
  make physical attacks do a lot more damage, which is good since Trask halves
  all elements. Its arsenal is rather annoying, but if the team's Lv10-13 then
  its main attack (Bio-Missile) should do approximately 80. Even so, erect the
  usual Extension + Shield when possible to make the battle more palatable, and
  be ready to cure poison! [Using Fragile helps inflict more hurt, too.]

 With Trask six feet under, trek upstairs to the next chamber where some mesh
 wire provides a playground course, not unlike Jet's prologue. Items #5-6 are
 located here and, expectedly, y'have to restart the entire thing when one's
 gotten. The path bifurcates at the end, going southwest and northwest. Take
 the latter path first, which leads to items #7-8. Definitely shell out a
 Duplicator here because the Booster Kit gives +10 to the encounter gauge,
 letting one skip more battles more often!

 Return to the bifurcation and go the southwest path, leading upstairs to a
 candle puzzle. To do this: stand by northernmost candle, snuff both with the
 freezer doll, light only northernmost candle, walk as far north as possible,
 snuff northernmost candle. From there, just jump down and exit. Collect Items
 #9-10 upstairs and save before taking the elevator.

  Cascade's gotten a lot more formidable in a short time, but it's still 4-on-1
  and manageable with a bit of effort. His arcana counter (self-heal) applies
  only to offensive types, so using downers like Decelerate or Fragile is
  hunky dory. His new attack, Rising Nova, can deal about 200dmg to a character
  which is hard-hitting but not life-threatening. Make sure Virginia can Mystic
  when needed and Gallows' can kick out the jam-...err, Extension + Shield. And
  don't bother wasting any Gella/Lucky Cards here.

 Beating Ka Dingel effectively ends the first chapter!

NEXT DESTINATION     [CHP2]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Everyone starts back in Claiborne. After some scenes talking about the next
 town, talk to Becky to learn that Little Twister is west of Claiborne, across
 a giant crevasse. In order to get there, the team must buy four horses from
 Dessinsey for 2000g -- if you don't have the cash, do the Jelly Blob "trick"
 or sell a few Gella Cards to make the buck.

 NOTE: The 'Martina Sidequest' can be done at this time, by talking to said
       girl in the saloon and questioning with the ASK System. When the screen
       is refreshed, she'll have gone to the Westwood station, the 2nd stop on
       her journey. Make sure to talk to her there!

 NOTE: Did you notice a new change in the opening cinema? There's one now!
  ___________________________________________________________________________
 | SIDEQUESTY NOTE | The Secret Garden sidequest's first couple steps can be |
 |ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ  started now, although it can't be finished for awhile.  |
 | To begin, once the horses are bought, hop a train back to Midland Station |
 | and call the horseys (with Call Whistle item) to the area. Jump the gorge |
 | between Baskar Colony and Jolly Roger's area, and go clockwise (eastward) |
 | around the forest. Search by the cliff overlooking the strait to uncover  |
 | the Secret Garden! After a scene, everyone gets [x10 Heal Berry], which's |
 | a good pick-me-up for someone still finding their footing in the game. I  |
 | don't suggest doing the Decaying Labyrinth step yet, although it can be   |
 | discovered along the gorge's western side. For now, just concentrate on   |
 | continuing with the game!                                                 |
 |___________________________________________________________________________|

 With everyone on horseback, find the crevasse near Westwood and jump it. This
 is done by getting some speed and hitting it perpendicularly; try at an angle
 and the horse will just stop. In the red-rock badlands beyond, search out a
 beach and search around there to find Little Twister.

   | |ŻŻŻŻ|  _______|       In the 2nd room, the team joins up with Claudia,
   | |   _| |_              a girl trying to get through the ruins. To solve
   | |  | 9-12|             the door-opening puzzle, bomb all four pyramid
  _| |_ |_____|             switches. Do it fast or they'll self-deactivate!
 |     |_____________       The next area has a duplicator door leading to

   ____________    | |___   
  |1 2    ___  |   |  5 6|  The adjacent screen leads to a switch on a tiny
  |3 4 | |___| |___| |7 8|  path over an abyss. When Claudia flips it, quickly
   ŻŻŻŻ|___  |__   __|ŻŻŻ   move out of the way before the trap knocks everyone
           | |  |_|         over the side. After, get Items #8-12 in a room
           |_|              just off the corridor (one is a powerful Mimic so
          ENTER             save beforehand if you're not sure y'can win!)

 Down the hall is a parallel walkway with one already traveled -- boomerang
 the wall above the switch, hitting it on the way down and opening the way
 forward. The next trap is an acid pool. Approach Claudia and, when she moves
 ahead, run after her to avoid the disintegration of the pathway.

 Two rooms down is another switch. Hitting it makes giant blocks tumble toward
 the party, and will push everyone into the abyss unless one is repeatedly
 bombed to clear the way. The hallway beyond leads Items #9-12, but they can't
 be obtained until the Mighty Gloves tool is found.

 The 2nd-to-last puzzle in the dungeon is 8 pyramid switches in two rows of
 four. This can be kind of annoying and requires a specific U-shaped bombing
 pattern: (1) pick the NW pair and put a bomb in between (2) do the same for
 the SW pair (3) repeat for the SE pair (4) finish with the NE pair. [This
 pattern can also be reversed or flipped, as long as it's U-shaped] 

 The final puzzle is boomerang-ing the switch to open a pathway, then running
 the gauntlet before the lateral lances lividly lacerate! Once through, trigger
 the lightning trap by grabbing the green gem, then getting out of the way.

  Clive's barbed remarks make him the target of the boss' fury, and she will
  always attack him as long as he's alive. This single-minded tactic makes it
  quite easy to get through, provided someone is constantly healing him. Her
  only attack can do 200-300 damage so it's not something to be messed with!
  Similarly, making Clive defend or giving him Protect makes damage easier to
  swallow. [Fragile helps, of course.]

 It's impossible to save afterwards (bah!) so just head north to the waiting
 boss.

  This battle can be rather tough, actually. Janus will often counter any ARMs
  damage with a paltry physical attack, which weakens everyone for his star
  attraction, Negative Rainbow -- it does about 180-200 damage to everyone at
  this point. This can't be used consecutively, however, so he'll use it every
  other turn. However, because he counters, this builds up everyone's FP at a
  much faster rate, especially if his strike is evaded. Mystic + Heal Berry and
  Extension + Protect will serve everyone well here. It's easy to perforate his
  defenses, since they haven't improved since Ka Dingel. Wasting a Lucky Card
  might pay off a bit here, but keep the Gella Cards in your hand. Decelerate &
  Fragile can quit warming the bench and see action, too. [If survival's hard,
  have everyone guard during Negative Rainbow.]

 In a scene afterwards, the mediums seem to suggest going to the southeast.
 First revisit Little Twister and question Claudia about the giant shrine she
 heard of, learning it's in the southeast indeed. Just search the coast south
 of town,

 Oaks may drop Blue Bracers (null: Paralysis), so it makes sense to get some
 for everyone while they're in relative abundance. They usually appear in
 post-battle boobytrap chests after an x3 Oak battle. Bring Toy Hammers and
 Pixie Dust to cure Amnesia and Paralysis, too, respectively.

|ŻŻŻŻ|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|  The main hall has a bunch of exits, but only the
| 01 | Tool: Steady Doll  |  floor switch one is accessible. This chamber has
| 02 | Gella Card [3]     |  Items #1-3, and as with all new tools, they'll
| 03 | 3500 Gella         |  soon see a lot of use (it can press switches from
| 04 | Tiny Flower        |  afar). In the main hall, put said doll to use to
| 05 | Revive Fruit [2]   |  reach the duplicator door. Should y'choose to get
| 06 | Migrant Seal       |  inside, there'll be Items #4-6 -- Migrant Seal!
| 07 | Growth Egg         |  Take the other lever door to continue.
| 08 | Gimel Coin         |
| 09 | Lucky Card [2]     |  Use the doll to move the block onto the switch,
| 10 | Duplicator         |  then continue to the main hall's bridge, leading
| 11 | Medium: Moon Spark |  west. For the next puzzle: put a block in the SW
|____|____________________|  corner, then the two stacked blocks on the others.

 Further along, at the next locked door use the new doll on a wall button. The
 adjacent room has a rusted door switch that can only be opened by jumping on
 it from a higher ledge. Item #7's chest here, and beyond, Item #8-9 are near
 an elevator switch.

 This path eventually leads to an outdoor garden. To open the locked door, the
 various breakable crates must be tossed onto the triangular prism switches
 strewn around. It's a good idea to use Gallows, as someone like Jet can't hit
 the one farthest away. Finally, Item #10 can be found in the east, and a
 Gimel Coin is in one of the breakable crates, too.  The path to the last room
 is rather straightforward from there. Of course someone is waiting, so save
 beforehand.

  Slickster starts the battle able to evade all physical attacks. To prevent
  this annoyance, use Decelerate and he'll return to normal. His attacks are
  nothing special, except Tri-Injury; luckily, some of the bite may have been
  taken out if one was diligent in collecting various status-prevention gears.
  Cure Disorder when it's used and Extension + Protect when possible, which is
  about all that's left to do besides pumpin' him full of lead (Fragile works
  sometimes). Cure Amnesia before ending battle if y'want that experience!

 The Moon Spark medium is obtained afterward. Make sure to equip it, and the
 new Clear Chime, on someone! Heal up and backtrack through the dungeon to the
 room where the rusted button is... [No saving is possible en route.]

  This frightening boss from WA games' past is a little more tame in this
  version, although it is still liable to cause a ruckus. Whoever has the Moon
  Spark medium should max out Dark Ward to null Screaming Mad, and fire off
  Grav each turn to take off 1400-1800 HP each turn. The other allies should
  simply lay into the beast after using Fragile. The boss is susceptible to a
  lot of statuses, but Sleep may be the most important. Its Seventh Moon tech
  is either used frequently or almost never -- there's no middle ground, it
  seems. [All its attacks are magical so use Extension + Protect, naturally.
  A Lucky Card ain't a bad idea either.]

                                     ---

 The search for the next dungeon leads us toward the high ground overlooking
 the desert strait, northwest of Little Twister. However, as usual, one has
 to find the information from the townspeople (this time Cormano) instead of
 going on the prior scene's directions.

  These "weirdos" aren't that hard to tangle with, but they can cause problems
  the longer battle continues. As the game says, they're highly organized and
  have certain functions -- for instance, if Vendidurt can use Eraser, then he
  will without fail. The good news is that one can "bait" the enemy into that
  path, ensuring they don't do anything offensive in nature. Having someone
  Eraser Wisrapt (or his targets) and put status magic on allies baits two out
  of the three Huskarls into turn-wasting nonsense (Jasna wastes his turns too
  if he can heal). Speaking of which, Jasna's Deathbringer skill nominates him
  as the highest priority target -- use Fragile and quickly eliminate! The
  others aren't that important once he's out of the way.

  This battle is an exact repeat of the first battle to start, so same strategy
  applies. However, once the fight is won, the fourth knight Jasteuch appears
  and it all starts again. Like before, Jasna's Deathbringer should prioritize
  his downfall over the rest, then defeat Jasteuch whose Khorda Avesta attack
  will hit everyone. Note that all of them are still susceptible to Sleep, and
  this can evade Khorda Avesta, which is used every three turns. Given this
  fact, it makes sense to Mystic a Lucky Card in both of the boss battles.

 Once the Huskarls' threat is finally over, continue the path to an anteroom
 with Items #5-6 inside. . The main path leads to a sandy channel with movable
 platforms, once the button's stepped on. With the first set of blocks, Items
 #7-9 are available to snatch. The switch in the western corner makes the dark
 blocks active, allowing access to the 3rd switch in the east, which THEN
 allows access to the exit in the S via a blue block that travels to the
 initial platform. Whew. [Remember: you can walk diagonally across blocks w/o
 falling in!]

 The adjacent sand channel has many platforms that rise and sink in a pattern.
 Getting through isn't that hard, but it may take a few trials & errors to get
 the pattern down pat. There's no tips to give besides it's possible to walk
 diagonally to tiles. Items #10-11 are available in the subsequent corridor,
 the last chests available at this time. [NOTE: The Soul Feather is not that
 important and it's very rare to find something that can inflict glass status,
 so don't equip it.]

 A second sand channel replicates the last's type, although it's fast-moving
 as opposed to the other's leisurely pace. Again, trial and error is the best
 way to get through, although if y'need a helping hand, try watching this
 video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-MysCx5BLw) at around 3:30 for one of
 the possible ways. Be sure to hit the lever on solid ground to avoid doing
 this puzzle ever again! Make way northwest, past the switch that can't be
 triggered yet, and save before entering the final room...

  This battle is unwinnable, and Janus tips the team off that in three turns,
  he'll make the sky turn black -- i.e. his most powerful attack, Ultranegative
  Rainbow. Do whatever until then but make sure everyone guards the turn he
  uses his souped-up technique 'cause it can skewer injured allies easily. Do
  not waste any Lucky/Gella cards, of course.

 Afterwards, everyone'll be through Sand Canal in a new region. Head straight
 east and search around near the coast to find the town of Little Rock.

 Loot these peasants, hit-'em-up style!

 • Dragon Fossil - barrel in mine 
 • Duplicator ---- crate near armsmith
 • Name Tag ------ barrel in cliff cave
 • Heal Berry ---- barrel, bar 2F (outside)
 • Mini Carrot --- barrel in armsmith
 • Gimel Coin ---- barrel, bar 2F (inside)

 The tip for the next dungeon comes from Kovahn outside, talking about how
 a run-down shrine is to the north. Remember these NPCs? Most appeared in
 Jet's prologue. Talking to them with Jet as pointman will give different
 dialogue!
 
 NOTE: Martina should be at the bar if you've been talking to her. [She will
       appear in Little Twister if you backtrack through Sand Canal but this
       isn't required, just a curio.]

 To locate the dungeon, get on your horse (buy a Call Whistle to get one in
 this area) and head north. Left of one of the beaches is the dungeon in
 question!

 NOTE: Follow west of Glimmering Emblem to find Doomed to Obscurity, Jet's
       prologue dungeon, near the coast (it doesn't appear on map). Remember
       that chest at the top that couldn't be gotten before? The Steady Doll
       can snatch it -- "it" being a Migrant Seal.

 To open the way forward, the team must go down both the left & right paths
 at the start. At the end of each, the team will end up on a ledge overlooking
 a center room. Gallows' Freezer Doll has to be shot straight ahead at a dirty
 window, and after a bit, it'll let the sun shine in on the red balloon-like
 object. But before that, the paths have to be done.

 WEST: The first room's puzzle involves hitting the block away with the Steady
       Doll, then hitting the unshielded switch with a boomerang. Easy-peasy.
       The second room has 3 blocks, and when moved, the other arrangement of
       blocks on the other side mimics them. All this means is that by pushing
       the three blocks side-by-side to form a bridge (in the north), there'll
       be a waiting bridge on the east side. [Get Item #1 on ledge after.]

 EAST: Collect Item #2 and move into the mirror room. To open the exit, the
       torches must be lit in a certain configuration, which is made evident
       by the spectral reflection. Copy the reflection exactly and the door
       will open; break the glass with a bomb. Items #3-4 are in the adjacent
       room.

 When both windows have been freeze-cleaned from the ledges, the lower door
 can be entered. North of there, past the pane of glass, the path splits in
 three again. Either ladder leads to a path that must be explored in another
 "joint effort" to open the lower path.

 WEST: Another block puzzle where one side mimics the other. Ignore the floor
       switch a moment and make a side-by-side bridge to the other side. Then,
       maneuver a "mimicking" block onto the switch to open the door. Finally,
       use the remaining two blocks to make a bridge to the exit. For the 2nd
       puzzle, Steady-doll the two blocks off the edge and form a bridge to
       the exit, making sure to nab Item #6 from the ledge.

 EAST: The first room's block puzzle is a cinch, just a mimicking block one
       as have just been done. The 2nd "flame reflection" puzzle is easy too,
       but the creators throw in a twist: not only do the flames have to be
       mirror images but so do to the crates. On the side with the crates,
       destroy the "NW" elbow to open the exit. Get Items #7-8 en route to
       the final switch.

 With both levers pulled and the barricades lowered, the way north is open --
 save! North, the Flash Hit medium is obtained right before a boss does a
 flashy hit of its own...

  Pretty simple -- the boss has basic single-target attacks and they're not
  that damaging. Gallows should be the only one who gets Flash Hit as it knows
  the "Valiant" spell, where lost health is converted into damage. Fr'instance,
  if Gallows has 1 out of 1000 HP remaining, 999 extra damage is added to his
  damage output. Fragile the boss and rip him to shreds with Spectre -- no
  sweat broken. [Use a Gella Card if y'have one.]

 But the show ain't over yet! Continue north, inspect the chock, then turn
 back south to fight yet another boss. Like before, there's no saving 
 in-between battles, so...

  Same fight as before, except the stats are a little better, the weakness
  is now Darkness instead of Light, and damage is countered with Dark Matter.
  This shouldn't increase the difficulty any; it just makes the battle longer.
  Use Fragile and Extension + Valiant to make short(er) work of this doofus,
  and don't forget the Gella/Lucky Card!

 Following the festivities, return to Little Rock to dig up some clues to the

 that's the next stop. Basically, to find it, follow the coastline west of

 Enter the north hallway and hang a west to find a meeting room. Get Items 1-2
 and search around the lockers to find the Radar tool for Jet. This identifies
 hidden items in barrels and similar containers, cutting down search time and
 ensuring y'don't miss anything! Remember to read the bookshelf containing a
 memo about elevator passwords -- passwords that are a person's name. Hmm...
 Go across the hall to the lift controls and input 'Inkapilia' as the password,
 which will open the elevator down the hall.

 On 2F, enter the meeting room and loot it for Items 3-5 (#5 in a cubby hole).
 The room across the hall is locked, but by finding the ID Card (Item #6) on
 a table in the southern research area, it can be opened. Just remember it has
 to be selected from the inventory!

 3F has Items #7-11 but nothing too extraordinary item-wise. Two things of
 note: (1) the Holy Ankh chest is guarded by two Mimics (2) a bookshelf has an
 Adult Mag sealed by a duplicator -- don't open it! It requires one to be "18"
 to fight the optional boss, which actually means a Migrant level of 18. Don't
 waste a duplicator on it!

 At one end of the 3F hallway, the team will splinter off to inspect the
 still-active machines. Talk to everyone, inspect all consoles, then talk to
 Jet to find a hidden passage. One of the bookshelves there talks about "The
 Guiding Word" being a magical password and -- what d'ya know! -- it can be
 put in the northern corridor's console to remove the laser grid. Just make
 sure to put "Guiding Word" in verbatim or it won't work. [Save before going
 north.]

 Inspect the table photograph, then use the "Right Half" from the inventory to
 obtain Item #12. This also signals a boss fight!

  The Divine Fortress revealed! Asgard's physical attacks can pack quite a
  punch, which is all the more reason to get Extension + Valiant/Shield up.
  Dealing damage on the whole isn't that hard, especially with Fragile and
  some souped-up weapons; however, sometimes the boss erects a damage-nulling
  barrier for a few turns. Until the boss uses "Optimize data." to remove its
  barrier, use that time to heal up, distribute Lucky/Gella cards, and so on.
  The good news is that the boss doesn't attack while its barrier is erected.

 Once battle's over, Clive suggests going to his hometown of Humphrey's Peak,
 south of the observatory. To find it, cross the natural bridge nearby & trek
 SW near the beach to find town.

 NOTE: The opening cinema has been tweaked to show Asgard now!

 Before robbin' the 'hood, head to Clive's house -- the blue-roofed one. After
 a scene, inspect the Taped Photo to continue. The man of the house remembers
 there being a gem-filled mineral vein nearby, and Catherine suggests visiting
 the Guardian of Luck's shrine. But whoa, let's do one at a time. First, steal
 from these good citizens:

 • Potion Berry - armsmith barrel
 • Adventure 1 -- talk to Kaitlyn
 • Grab Bag ----- dresser in Clive's house

 Now, about the destinations: Fortune Gear or Gemstone Cave. To reach the
 former, head east to the railroad tracks and uncover East Highlands station,
 and from there, take a ticket to Dune Canyon's station. Fortune Gear's nearby
 in the east. Simon also talks about a monster named Diobarg causing trouble,
 and gives hints about the dungeon's location. [There's also a Duplicator in
 a barrel at Dune Canyon.] To reach Gemstone Cave, go north of Humphrey's Peak
 and jump the crevasse. The mineshaft is located against a large mesa. 

 Since the former has a guardian that teaches Pickpocket, that's the 1st stop!

 NOTE: If you go into the dry riverbed in-town, search underneath the bridge's
       blind spot and walk north. There's a hidden NPC (Uncle Gob) down here
       who talks about the world map's completion. Later, when it's completed
       100%, he'll give an EX File Key! Keep it in mind.

                           START

 Continue north, ignoring the side-stairs (unless you want to waste a d'cator
 to get Item #10), until y'reach a room with eight crystals. The puzzle is
 solved by matching their colors, kind of like "The Memory Game" -- inspect one
 and find its pair. When all are done, the door opens; however, making too many
 errors randomizes the colors and forces the player to rebegin.

 Once through, look for a suspicious east-side wall that can be bombed to
 show Items #1-3 (Migrant Seal is a duplicator chest). Down the hall is the
 antechamber with Items #4-6 inside, as well. Continue to the 2nd "Memory Game"
 puzzle. It's basically a repeat of the first, except now there's a crapload of
 breakaway floor tiles to annoy a player. [Soft-walking with avoids them.] Past
 there is the next boss...

     |___________________________________________________________________|

  Remember this idiot from Wild Arms 2? He's back and still has some disgusting
  moves. This battle is ridiculously easy if one obtained four Hazel Sprigs at
  Ka Dingel; if not, be prepared to use Extension + Clearance/Mystic + Medicine
  to get rid of all the nasty stuff. Since the boss absorbs all elements (!?)
  the only way to teach it a lesson is through gunfire -- hit it up w/ Fragile
  and boost everyone with Extension + Valiant. [Poison works well with Valiant,
  remember.] The boss isn't worth a Gella/Lucky Card, frankly.

 The next puzzle is a bit tricky since there's no hint as to the solution --
 which is freezing the N, W, and S pedestals and stepping on the east to open
 the exit. In the corridor beyond, bump into the orange wall button to gain
 access to the antechamber with Items #7-9 inside. Beyond, a third "Memory
 Game" puzzle. The trick here is that once triggered, they deactivate after a
 second or two, so one has to be quick about matching them up. [In case it's
 not obvious, using the Steady Doll to cover ground quickly is required.]
 
 Past there's a chock, signifying the dungeon's almost over. Save! Beyond...

  Basically a repeat of the Sand Canal battle, but with all cylinders and no
  orders to hold back! Get Extension + Protect up quickly so Negative Rainbow
  doesn't rip everyone to shreds, then try to do the same with Valiant to
  increase damage output. Janus has Reflect at the start so Eraser it away
  before casting any offensive arcana (Fragile, etc). Since this battle's a
  bit hard actually, Mystic a Potion Berry if need be. [When Janus is defeated,
  he'll use Negative Rainbow before it ends, so be prepared. There may not be
  too much time to use Lucky Cards and such, so if y'find an opening, do it!]

 Afterwards, the Lucky Hand medium is obtained. Equip it on whoever -- since
 Gallows gets the best stuff, I usually give it to Virginia for the HP boost,
 and so she'll have something to do when she's not attacking.

FIGHTING DIOBARG
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Remember that enemy Simon at Dune Canyon talked about? The one who attacks
 fast moving objects? He can be fought in the Fortune Gear region, but only if
 everyone's on horseback. Before battle, there'll be a green exclamation point
 so it's quite easy to locate him. He has 4000 HP and two attacks, one of
 which causes paralysis...or it would if everyone wasn't on horseback. He's
 such a gigantic pushover that there's no reason to go all out in detailing
 him. Beating him earns fifteen (15) Dragon Fossils, which will be required
 for an upcoming portion of the game -- don't forget to do this! [Make sure
 to use Gella/Lucky Cards as well since he gives out 3800/3500, respectively.]

MILLENNIUM PUZZLES
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 After Fortune Gear's completed, talk to Simon and inquire about his hobby.
 He likes making puzzles and a sponsor has created twenty shrines around the
 world for them. Solving one gets an item, and the chest goes toward the 320
 total count so they have to be done in the long run if y'wanna fight Black
 Box! Millennium Puzzle #1 is nearby, around the eastern mesa by the tracks.

 Pretty easy going for awhile. Continue until the rival drifters are seen,
 and get Item #1 in the chest beneath the walkway. Loop east for the western
 trek, and after awhile, the team encounters Maya, making a bit of mischief
 by blocking the path with a boulder. Like Trask, the way to get past it is by
 degrading its composition: repeatedly heat it with the Tindercrest, then cool
 it down with the Freezer Doll. Bombs'll blow it to smithereens, then.

 This larger chamber has Item #2 on a chest across the stream (Steady Doll).
 Near here, look for a strangely well-lit portion of the wall to find a door
 stuffed with rocks. Blow it open to find a hidden path beyond, where Item #3
 is. The other stuffed-up passage leads to an isolated part of the world map,
 but this isn't important now (it will be later, however). The eastern part
 of this chamber leads to a lege with Item #4 on it, though.

 Backtrack to the well-lit portion and go east, which leads to a chamber with
 plenty of holes. Maya'll knock everyone in to start, but simply go up the
 slope to return.
  ___________ ___   The room has seven holes to fall into, some leading to

  Todd should be the first priority again, although this time at least half the
  team can guard against Psycho Crack's confusion-inducting status. Remember to
  catch him on fire to inflict additional damage! [He'll heal any ally attacked
  while he's alive, remember.] Although Maya's new costume imbues her with some
  new powers, the attacks aren't that powerful...still, it'll help to Extension
  Protect or Valiant around, before Maya Eraser-s it. Like usual, battle ends
  when Maya's defeated.

 Afterwards, everyone's on the world map and it's suggested to revisit Clive's
 hometown. A bit later, meet with Albert by the town memory figure to get a
 new mission: retrieve the Kizim Fire from a nearby dungeon. The job's 2000g
 upon completion, and the dungeons' southwest of Humphrey's Peak, apparently.
 Basically just head east to the railroad tracks and search near the ridge.

 Continue forward into the 2nd screen and use the east staircase, going back
 south. The duplicator-locked room contains Items #1-3, including the first
 Full Carrot -- don't waste it as you'll want to save it for the Secret Garden
 sidequest where you can breed them. Return north to a room with a dry furnace.
 Step on the grate-opener switch and throw Tindercrests into its belly until a
 generator kicks on, opening the door west.

 Snatch Item #4 nearby, then monkey-climb south to Items #5-6. Return to the
 2nd screen and find the generator's enabled an elevator -- take it. Spy the
 mesh-wire net and climb on, then drop onto the rusty button to open a door
 above. Flip upwards and enter to get Clive's Mighty Gloves tool, which lets
 him move heavy blocks with ease. [A forced Vacuumon battle takes place now.]
 Use the new tool in the previous room to unblock the doorway.

 Beyond, the tool gets another work out, putting the heavy block on the door's
 switch. There's a 4-cube puzzle beyond, although it's quite simple: slide all
 blocks north, then east from where they land, onto the switches. Item #8 is
 nearby, too. Take the stairs up to the next puzzle room.

 Here, Clive'll have to cut through the massive stack of blocks to get to the
 door switch, then do the same on the way back. Items #9-10 are found in an
 east antechamber, although the west door is the real way to take. This leads
 to items #11-12, the last of their kind in the dungeon. Complete the next
 block puzzle downstairs (put them on the switches farthest away from 'em).
 Save afterwards, then continue to get Item #13, the Kizim Fire. A boss fight
 takes place on the way out.

  After the first-turn Barrier Flood, Melody joins the battle. Erect Extension
  + Protect to lessen Flood's damage, and Fragile big bad golemface in order
  to get more damage done. Melody can't be damaged whatsoever and switches
  places with Asgard if attacked. The erected barrier blocks all normal damage,
  but awesomely, Valiant will pierce it, so there's no reason to let up when
  Asgard starts wasting its turns. When enough damage's been done, Asgard uses
  Wide Barrier to end the rollercoaster ride of excitement. [Don't bother with
  any Lucky/Gella cards.]

 Following, there'll be a rematch on evener terms...

  The jammer bullet's affected Asgard's systems and he can only use his most
  basic attack, which, even with everyone's reduced HP (don't waste any Nectars
  here), should be rather easy to defeat. Just keep everyone's health in good
  order, use Fragile, and go for the jugular. [Mystic a Gella/Lucky card here!]
 
 With Faraway Lands in the bag, return to Humphrey's Peak for the 2000g reward
 and get the new mission to deliver it to the central office -- 3000g up front
 and the rest upon completion. The branch is on an island southeast of Jolly
 Roger

JOLLY ROGER
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Talk to Emelia the Armsmith and she'll give everyone a Sandcraft to traverse
 the sea of sand...provide the team has 15 Dragon Fossils. The easiest way to
 get this amount is to kill Diobarg, the enemy seen in the Dune Canyon area
 (he attacks when the team is riding horses). See the Fortune Gear section for
 more info on that. Once bought, the Sandcraft appears on the beach next to
 town.

 NOTE: All normal enemies (and some bosses, too) may drop Dragon Fossils now,
       in addition to their regular items. This is to help one fill the quota
       if Diobarg's not an option.

 BUT BEFORE DOING THAT, while we're in the area, why not start up the Secret
 Garden sidequest? It could've been started earlier but without Dark Wards,
 it's pretty impossible to get through (the team should have two by now).

 To find the Secret Garden, get on some horses and jump the gorge near the
 Midland Station railroad tracks. Search among the eastern verdure to find the
 tiny hideaway house. [There's no special requirement to finding this place.]
 There's a Duplicator in the house (barrel) and talking to Florina earns ten
 Heal Berries. The little girl says corrupt soil in the northwest is causing
 her plants to cry! Search the NW side of the gorge to find the next dungeon.

 This dungeon's actually quite straightforward so there's no in-depth strat
 needed, luckily. En route to the boss chamber, there's only one puzzle and
 it's moving blocks around to get to the door switch -- yawn! Eventually the
 team will be locked into the center room and after opening the chest and
 getting the Corpse Ring, a fiend approaches!

  Two people should have Dark Ward by now, nullifying the Phantom Hazard and
  making this battle a lot easier. Anti-Arcana Zone can be annoying but for
  those who like playing on weaknesses, use Light Gems or wait it out. Fragile
  and Valiant speed things up. Don't forget to Lucky/Gella card this ghoulish
  freak either. [Those without Dark Ward may have a hard time staying alive
  if the boss pulls Phantom Hazard repeatedly, so Extension + Protect helps a
  lot. FP-gaining is easy since it counters all damage and misses a lot, too,
  so at least that's goin' for them. Defending to reduce damage is the other
  option, of course.]

 Afterwards, the team has the option to take the Corpse Ring. During the time
 it's in the inventory, everyone's HP is permanently stuck at 1 within the
 dungeon and saving can't be done. So, to hedge one's bets, don't take it
 right away and save on another file, then open the chest and continue on.
 Take the ring when ready. Although it's possible to fight enemies with 1 HP
 and still get through (even if you die, you still have 1 HP), it's still a
 risk, so it's best to avoid all battles whenever possible. Pertinent to this
 method, there are a few ways to interrupt battles:

 - Stepping on switches
 - Skipping w/ ENC Gauge
 - Grabbing ahold of blocks
 - Entering/exiting a screen
 - Falling in pits (great for resetting puzzles, avoiding lots of walking)

 The passage back is lined with pits, so falling into 'em is one of the easy
 options; for the generic block/puzzle mazes (there are two on the way back)
 grabbing onto blocks is also on the table. Play it smart and there's little
 threat of getting attacked -- well, unless y'have less than 2-3 on the ENC
 gauge. Getting ambushed in this setting blows, so avoid that outcome... [Kill
 Undead Reptiles immediately as they can attack everyone with Steam Breath.] 

 Eventually the two routes overlap and the team ends up back near the start.
 Bringing the Corpse Ring out into the sunlight breaks the curse, removing it
 from the inventory and solving Florina's problem.

SECRET GARDEN
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Return to Florina and she'll give the best reward so far: allowing one to
 cultivate certain medicinal items, such as carrots, berries, roots, etc. This
 is a good way to get supplies -- plant some now, come back later on and get
 the harvest. The 'breeding' option sacrifices certain items to increase the
 growth rate, so by sacrificing 100 Heal Berries, they'll be ridiculously easy
 to obtain. Of course, this is more helpful for, say, Large Carrots, Potion
 Berries, Holy Roots, etc. Plant some now and return later for harvest!
 
 NOTE: Item class improves for every 10 items sacrificed. Florina's dialogue
       will change each time this is done, as a way to gauge the progress.

 NOTE: If you max out breeding one (1) of the plants, Florina gives the team
       a "Dried Flower" gear, whose "Green Thumb" ability improves the amount
       healed by berries. This is good for Virginia as, when maxed, it doubles
       all berry effects!

 See the Secret Garden sidequest section for more details.

 Once the Sandcraft's been obtained, it's time to find the Ark. Head southwest
 of Jolly Roger and find the first island in sight, with its bow-shaped ridge.
 In the crook of that ridge is the order's ship and office. Head north into
 the bridge and the Kizim Fire is given over for 5000 gella. After a bit o'
 talk, another mission is given: stop the Schroedingers rampaging through
 Survey Point #17. Albert will give the location, being the first beach south
 of the Ark's island but in the vicinity before the land bridge.

 Item-wise, there's a lot of goodies to loot in the order, but not all can be
 obtained just yet -- most require yet-unobtained tools.

 • [10] Dragon Fossil - room requiring Mighty Gloves
 • Map Scope ---------- room requiring Mighty Gloves
 • [03] Warp Star ----- SWmost duplicator room

 Don't bother opening any of the other duplicator rooms yet, though -- they're
 wastes of time.

  A ridiculously stupid stopgap battle, and rather easy, since most of these
  suckers are just souped-up versions of normal monsters. Remove Donkey first
  as "Walpurgis Night" is a nuisance, unless everyone got Hazel Sprigs ages
  ago. It doesn't really matter the order the others are taken out in. Remember
  to Gella/Lucky Card, and take away one good memory from these losers.

 The trail continues! Get the Heal Berry and Mini Carrot hidden in screen 7,
 and enter screen 8 where Maya/Virginia'll have to work together to get ahead.
 Maya will step on switches to lower barricades; Virginia Tindercrests candles.
 In Screen 9, breakable crates hide a Lucky Card. The tenth screen has another
 "work together" puzzle, with Virginia taking the highroad. Pretty simple too,
 although there's a bit of timing in play now (toward the end, fire a T'crest
 diagonally to get to end switch).

 Screen #11 has a Heal Berry and Gimel Coin, while the next has a Gimel Coin
 and Lucky Card (in crates). Screen #13 has the last "work together" puzzle,
 and it's trickier but has a simple trick. When it starts, both gals will be
 followed by, uh, "spear blocks" that force a restart if they touch anyone.
 Light the first two torches with Virginia, then buffet the nearing block with
 Freezer Doll to buy time for Maya to hit the other switch. Save before going
 further.

  An annoying battle to be sure. Before deciding which target to kill first,
  stick up Extension + Protect to make the magical pounding everyone takes
  easier to endure. If the player wants to take out Humpty initially, getting
  Critical Heal out of the way, that's the easy road to walk, although Dumpty
  will bombard everyone with hard-hitting arcana up to that point. The flipside
  is taking out Dumpty first, which makes the battle easy but the work often
  gets undone -- this is the hard road. Valiant-boosted gatlings eviscerate
  Dumpty since, when about 2000 HP is lost, Humpty's AI kicks in to heal. Both
  are weak to light-elemental attacks, also, so whoever has Flash Hit (Gallows,
  if you're smart!) can get a few twofers in. [Gella/Lucky Card like usual.]

 Go north a screen and save before entering the final...

  The killing order is Todd -> Maya -> Shady -> Alfred. That part hasn't
  changed but Maya and Todd have found a few new tricks, with Maya channeling
  Jean from Lunar 2 (no side ponytail!?) and having some physical-oriented
  moves, and Todd focusing on his two new abilities, including one that halves
  HP. [He doesn't seem to use his earlier ones, which is good for those who
  dread Psycho Crack's confusion status.] Naturally it's best to Extension
  Shield around to lessen the physical damage, and later on, boosting everyone
  with Valiant helps clean up. One thing to know is that enemy AI often gangs
  up on characters occasionally, such as: Divide Shot -> Pike/Phalanx -> B.
  Breath. This can do about 800+ damage even with a physical barrier around!
  If one's been dutiful in cultivating berries at the Secret Garden, the fight
  makes a good argument to their liberal application. [Gella/Lucky Card like
  usual, too.]

 Afterwards, there'll be a 15:00 timer to escape the dungeon. This isn't that
 hard of a task unless y'have little to no ENC gauge left to burn -- and the
 timer DOES run in battle. [Hopefully you don't get any one-ally ambushes like
 I did, especially with 5-6 Urchin Bugs...holy crap. Luckily losing an ambush
 like this and restarting w/ a Gimel Coin doesn't recreate the situation.]

 Once the escape's made, the journey to Ark of Destiny's automatically done,
 and while no reward's obtained, the team can access the library (by entrance)
 at leisure. Inspect the shelf at the "elbow" to get some more info on the
 Council of Seven. Virginia suggests going to her hometown of Boot Hill. If
 you've bought the World Map from Roykman (and you should've by now), the town
 is located on the landmass at the north-central and south-central of the map.
 It's got a lot of green plains to differentiate it from the usual desert-y
 places, so it's not that hard to find. Boot Hill's on a northern beach of the
 landmass, facing an sandy inlet.

 Visit the fam or rob the citizens? I choose the latter!

 • Gimel Coin ----- armsmith, crate.
 • Warp Star ------ house by well, barrel
 • Tiny Flower ---- grave
 • Name Tag ------- shed by hilltop farm
 • Revive Fruit --- Tesla's house, barrel
 • Heal Berry ----- tree by well (how clever!)
 • Gimel Coin ----- crate behind Tesla's house

 Note that the rare Tiny Flower often appears on Ekatrina's grave, making
 it hands-down the best method of obtainment (for breeding). It's the hardest
 item in the game to breed so y'gotta take 'em when they come -- visit often!

 At Virginia's house, the team gets a new lead about Yggdrasil, which may clue
 everyone into the planet's decay. Try to leave the village and Gallows thinks
 it's best to return to Baskar Colony for info, so do just that!

 NOTE: Gob's Hideout, Virginia's prologue dungeon, is almost due south of
       Boot Hill. East of Boot Hill, near the train tracks, is the Southfarm
       station. Might as well find this stuff before leaving.

 The sandcraft has an auto-pilot function to return to Jolly Roger, so might
 as well use that to avoid any battles along the way.

BASKAR COLONY
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Find Halle at the sanctuary to learn Infinitum is the last guardian shrine,
 and it's west of Baskar Colony. Unlike the others that were simply in the
 area by linearity's sake, Infinitum is tucked away and must be sought out in
 a rather roundabout way. To find it, get in the sandcraft at Jolly Roger and
 follow the continental coast west, toward the Little Twister area. Remember
 Sand Canal and there's a strait in-between it? Go through there and turn
 southeast, back towards Baskar Colony's beach. Just a little west of said
 beach is another on the orange-colored soil. Search around there to find the
 tower.

 NOTE: Manticores occasionally drop Moonstones (null: poison) so if y'haven't
       decked out the party with 'em, now's a good time.

  This shouldn't be that hard of a battle -- get the Mystic/Gella card stuff
  out of the way first, Fragile the boss, and Extension + Protect to diminish
  Caloric Sphere's power. Attacking Pyrodrake with its weakness (ice) causes it
  to counter with Volcannon Trap, so simply avoid doing that and things'll be
  A-OK. [Valiant helps too, of course.]

 Following, move the blocks near the wall out of the way and bomb the crack,
 gaining access to Items #1-4. Those moveable blocks, when put side-by-side,
 form a path along the rim of the room. In the SW corner, have Gallows inspect
 the weird device to open the northern elevator.

 On 4F, boomerang the walkway's underside switch to start the first pendulum
 moving, and let it hit the pointman onto the east switch, making the other
 pendulum move. Get knocked to the strange device like on 3F, and have Gallows
 read it to open the exit. Up to 5F!

 There, the room is taller and full of cogs, which are used as transportation
 in this case (stand on the protrusions). Make it to the 2nd cog and flip the
 nearest switch, cueing a western swingset used to get to the 2nd switch. [The
 platforming parts here are liable to drive a player up the wall if y'don't
 time it correctly!] Now that the 2nd swingset is moving, use it to reach the
 southern ledges where Gallows can work his magic on the exit switch.

 Upstairs, there's a giant clock-like ring and an inscription urging one to
 not go against the flow of time. Okay. Using the Tindercrest, light pedestals
 starting at I and ending at XII (or, clockwise). Items #7-10 are up the lift,
 the last in the dungeon. Save before going north.

  Asgard will continuously try his Fortress of the Gods attack, which simply
  ends up failing, making this battle rather easy to control. Extension +
  Shield at the start to reduce damage from its counterattack, and pick your
  assailants carefully (Barrier Knuckle can do 400-500 damage w/ Shield). Cast
  Valiant if needed -- the simplicity of execution overrides any deep tactics,
  though.

 Once things finish, it becomes a double-header!

  Gallows asks everyone to stall for three turns, so the other allies gotta
  to take on Asgard alone. There's not much to do besides defending/healing,
  and so long as y'anticipate healing with Clive (the only person slower than
  Asgard, generally), there's not much trouble. If y'cultivated a huge harvest
  of berries at the Secret Garden, now's a good time to use 'em. [NOTE: There
  might be a EXP/GELLA payout if Asgard's defeated within 3 turns, but it's
  not obtained normally so don't waste any cards.]
 
 Afterward, the clue to finding Yggdrasil is given: go through Nidhogg Pass.
 The Cosmic Cog medium's also obtained, and since it's abilities aren't that
 awesome Extension-wise, I usually give it to Jet (who still has only one
 medium, Moor Gault's!). It's also a good choice since Accelerator's often a
 pinpoint accuracy ability and saving it up makes more sense, thus his FP's
 often higher than the others at any given time...at least for me.

FINDING NIDHOGG PASS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Clive suggests visiting various locales to learn where the pass is. Although
 y'can head to the dungeon if its location's already known, the real way to
 find out is by learning info from NPCs and piecing it together. This is done
 by talking to Gunther in Boot Hill (as Virginia) to learn about the giants
 in the Nidhogg legend and how there's two statues dedicated to 'em. These
 are located:

 - the cape north of Southfarm
 - the island in-between Sand Canal's location

 Each giant is looking in a certain direction, and where the lines intersect,
 that's where the entrance is (in this case, on the NW landmass wrapped around
 the circular island). It's quite easy to find, too. Return to Infinitum's
 location and head north, past the Baskar beach. While circling the island,
 look for a beach with a small hilltop forest -- that's where Nidhogg Pass
 lies.

 NOTE: The sandsea around Yggdrasil has Capricorn and Jenny Green Teeth foes,
       which can drop Ice and Water Rings, respectively. Eventually there's a
       better way to get Water Rings, but Capricorns are the easiest (natural)
       way to get Ice Rings that I know of. [Of course, selling one to the
       Black Market later on becomes more reliable.]

  The boss' arsenal is rather crappy, with Luminous Moss being the biggest
  annoyance -- a couple people should be immune to confusion by now, though.
  First turn, get the lucky/gella card issues out of the way and Extension
  Valiant around, which hopefully allows one to finish expediently. And if it
  matters, the boss is weak to both Light/Dark elements.

 Head south until the chamber with the crumbling passageway is found. There's
 actually a duplicator door halfway through that one can fall by, and it'll
 lead to Items #1-3 -- the Migrant Seal's worth it. Get Items #4-5 in the
 pathway's chamber first, though. Further south is a room with two blocks. Use
 Mighty Gloves to put the higher one down, then make a bridge to Item #4. Past
 there, hit the lever and...the exit isn't opened!?
 
 The reason behind this is that, often unbeknownst to the player, there's
 actually TWO entrances to Nidhogg Pass, keeping in line with the legend of
 the giants who couldn't work together. But the statues only point to one,
 so it's time to find the other through simple detective work... [Although,
 standing by the 1st forest, you may have already caught sight of the 2nd --
 it's within eyeshot.]

FINDING NIDHOGG PASS' OTHER ENTRANCE
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Auto-pilot back to Jolly Roger and visit Ark of Destiny -- Albert mentions a
 strange forest southwest of the Ark. Basically, follow the coast east past
 the beach that led to Survey Point #17 and land at the next one, where the
 verdant hilltop leads to the other entrance.

NIDHOGG PASS WALKTHROUGH, PT. II
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Nidhogg will have to be fought again once inside, so follow the directions
 above to defeat it again (once and for all, I might add). Go south until a
 blocked door's found -- curve a boomerang into a wall to hit the waterfront
 switch. Staying the course, pick up Item #7 on a ledge and find the chamber
 with three unlit torches sticking out of the water. Tindercresting them at
 different heights opens the upper door, but don't forget to pick up items
 #8-10 in the lower duplicator door (middle chest is x3 mimic battle). After,
 flip the lever to reunite the two paths and open the way south.

NIDHOGG PASS WALKTHROUGH, PT. III: UNITED PATH
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The next room can't be done until an eastern antechamber is reaped for Items
 #11-12, which gives Virginia the Galecrest tool. This allows her to breeze
 over some broken surfaces where one wouldn't normally be able to. I would
 liken the ability to Mario (from Super Mario fame), speed-running over
 platforms equally interspersed with pits -- he sprints over w/o falling in.
 Put the Galecrest to good use back in the previous room, and Virginia'll fly
 east to the exit.

 NOTE: Although Galecrest continues until an obstacle's hit, no enemies can
       attack during -- use this to your advantage for low encounter gauges.

 Through the south corridor is another room requiring the new tool. Locate
 and flip a lever, moving a platform southward. The switch in-between the high
 walls resets this, so Galecrest over it to avoid that outcome. This time,
 use Galecrest to glide south to the high exit overlooking Item #13. The next
 2-block puzzle room's pretty easy to figure out: make a bridge to the middle
 ledge and keep one block on it, so when Virginia Galecrests across, she'll
 be stopped by it and can maneuver to the exit.

 Adjacent is a 3-bridge area: one leading to a switch, one to Items #14-15,
 and one to the east exit, which leads back Item #13's room. Galecrest east,
 then past the rocky corridor, to a 3-block puzzle. It should be pretty
 obvious where they go -- one in the SW corner, the others two spaces north
 and east of it, respectfully. This lets Virginia Galecrest to the corner,
 then to the opposite (east) corner. 
 
 Beyond, Galecrest west to Items #16-17, the final ones in the dungeon (Full
 Carrot is a duplicator chest). To solve the 2-block puzzle room facing the
 party, do this: (1) push the high block to the floor (2) maneuver both blocks
 near the northern ledge, so Virginia can jump off and land on one (3) G'crest
 south, parallel with east wall, and get to SE platform. [If you get rebuffed
 by a breakable crate, move the heavy blocks eastward still.] Save and go
 south...

  Pretty easy fight, as long as y'know the trick. Leehalt never initiates an
  offensive maneuver, he only counters all damage with "Rule of Vengeance."
  Basically, if Clive hits for 1000 damage, Leehalt hits Clive for the same.
  Using Valiant may or may not be a good idea in this way, and watch out for
  critical hits -- they can work against someone here!
  
 But ending the dungeon on such an easy note wouldn't be any fun. Now it's
 time to stick it to that chameleon idiot who's been tailing everyone through
 the entire game!

  Quite an annoying battle. Outer World halves all allies HP and makes Balazs
  invincible for one turn, during which he'll snipe people with Agony
  Effect. Did I mention Virginia has a storyline-related poison illness for
  the battle that can't cured? Yeah, it's pretty weak. The only way to damage
  the boss is by attacking after Outer World's effect ends but before Balazs
  gets a turn. There are two ways to do this, thus: (1) use Jet's Accelerator
  (2) Extension + Quicken to boost everyone's RFX so they can naturally get
  in turns. Without Quicken, Virginia and Jet may be the only ones capable of
  scoring hits. It's important to know that the boss has a predictable pattern
  of attack (Outer World x3, Agony Effect, repeat) and that a Valiant-enhanced
  Gatling can make short work of this doofus, not to mention nullified attacks
  still gain FP -- don't stop attacking! [Don't Lucky/Gella card, though.]

 Afterwards, Virginia'll need to convalesce and the invitation to visit a
 nearby house is extended. [This is done automatically.]

GREENLODGE
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This is the lodge "he" talked about. After some scenes, Virginia's up and at
 'em. The first aid kit here refills all HP, VIT, and the encounter gauge.
 However, our leading lady is still afflicted by the nanomachine poison and
 has her VIT gauge stuck permanently at zero (0), meaning she'll have to cure
 more than usual. There's also a Potion Berry to find outside, and later on,
 a Magic Candle.

 NOTE: Jenny Green Teeth in this area can drop Water Rings, and since it's a
       common element used by all types of enemies, now's a good time to get
       everyone decked out with 'em!

 To locate Yggdrasil, locate the pond nearby and search around the western
 clearing. The last dungeon in chapter two is before you!

 To get out of the first room, climb towards the locked door and jump off the
 ledge onto the rusted switch below. The next hallway has laser traps, which
 laughably are weak to Clive's bombs -- destroy them all before continuing.
 In the upstairs chamber, a walkway is guarded by some vigilant laser traps
 pointing right towards anyone coming along. To destroy them, stand by the
 corner, perpendicular to enemy's trajectory, and arc a boomerang to destroy
 the impedements. Once Items #1-2 are obtained up the ladder, save and keep
 on keepin' on...

  Melody's traded Eliminate Scanner for Venom Strike this time, which inflicts
  Poison if the target's susceptible -- if you got Moonstones at Infinitum as
  directed, the attack's side effect shouldn't be a problem. What is rather
  annoying is her barrier: any attack that does less than 350 HP is nullified.
  However, this isn't a subtractive effect: if someone normally deals 500 HP,
  they deal that much, not (500 - 350) HP. Obviously Extension + Valiant is a
  good way to boost the damage output. Is it worth using a Gella/Lucky card on
  poor, pitiful Melody? You decide. [Melody does not single-mindedly attack
  Clive for this fight either, to wit.]

 Once the beauty pageant's finished, head upstairs to a strange puzzle. The
 object here is to light up just the red lights, and it can be a bit vexing
 for trial-and-error sessions (hitting a light a 2nd time deactivates it). So,
 the most succinct way is to stand south/north, throw a Tindercrest through
 the 2nd and 4th rows, then stand east/west and throw through the 1st/5th
 rows. This should open the elevator door.

 Upstairs, Items #3-6 are available, either in the starting room or the south
 antechamber. Continue upstairs until some steam vents block the path -- make
 'em past tense by Freezer-dolling their pipes closed. Save before entering
 the next room.

  Expectedly, Malik starts out in his "fast" state and can't be hit with ARM
  attacks until someone casts Decelerate on him. Tri-Injury's a bother but
  it's Chaotic Dimension and Annihilator which make the fight truly annoying.
  However, said two attacks will not be used UNTIL Malik is Decelerated; this
  means simply bombarding him with arcana and Lock On is a safe and effective,
  albeit slower, way to get through with few bruises. Wanna rough it? Prepare
  to use Extension + Protect to lower Annihilator's 500-600HP damage, and hope
  the status effect gods don't spam Chaotic Dimension repeatedly. Hopefully,
  everyone's immune to disease and at least half are immune to confusion. [I
  suppose a third way to avoid Chaotic Dimension is to have confusion-immune
  people take action and the two others have the Amulet's Status Ward, which
  blocks the status as long as they're defending.] Gella/Lucky Card if the
  chance arises. 

 With the momma's boy whipped, venture upstairs to a corridor where the team
 is trapped by two barricades. Unfortunately, they're weak to bombs -- oh, the
 folly! For the next room, sneak across the breakable bridge, get items #7-9,
 and locate the stack of blocks. Put the carryable one to the south, and bank
 the sliding one south and across the bridge, stopping it on the doorswitch.
 Upstairs, ahoy!

 The curvy path once again has a few laser traps, so employ the "boomerang
 around the corner" option like before. Items #10-11 are up the ladder, so
 get 'em 'fore going south (save first).

  The third stooge appears! Unlike the previous encounter, he's discarded his
  defensive game and added Eliminate Scanner, which is the most powerful of
  the three (his power was hinted at earlier if y'recall). Cast Fragile and
  Extension + Protect as soon as possible, and take care of when attacking --
  critical hits and Valiant aren't necessarily welcome here! Gella/Lucky Card
  when able, too.

  Business as usual, really. Extension + Protect will knock Negative Rainbow
  down a notch, and the Dark Spear attack should be managable by this time
  (even for Virginia). All HP/FP values from the previous boss fight'll still
  be retained for this one, which is why it pays to defeat Leehalt in good
  health. Fragile and Valiant pay off as well, of course. [Definitely use a
  Gella/Lucky card for this goldmine.]

 Upstairs, a test-tube chamber if found, and stepping on the floor button'll
 initiate a "Simon" sequence. [For those who don't know what Simon is, it's a
 memory game about remembering the order fo colors.] In this case, an 8-tube
 sequence must be mimicked, by inspecting each tube in the order they first
 lit up in. It's not that hard to remember, although as with these types of
 games, cheating (*snicker*) is always welcome -- assigning them numbers and
 writing them down on a notepad, drawing a star-like diagram of the order,
 etc. works. The elevator's goin' up.

 Here, to open the door, Steady-doll the abyss' block south, then Boomerang
 to hit the switch it stood on. An anteroom nearby has Items #12-14, with the
 westmost chest guarded by four mimics. Upstairs, when the footpath is treaded
 on, the wall extends to push everyone into the pit -- use a Galecrest to beat
 it at its own game. Get Items #15-16 before going east, though (that Booster
 Kit is very helpful so expend a duplicator for it). There's a scene in the
 adjacent room nearby, then it's upstairs again (hooray for exercise...).

 The next room's door is locked by an "infection" puzzle, which is just the
 name I give to this particular thing. Basically, there's a 3x3 grid and when
 one tile is stepped on, it and any adjacent tiles change to the opposite of
 their current color. The objective is to make all the blue tiles red, which
 can be done in a bazillion ways, although the way I remember it is by doing:
 N, SE, SW, NE, S, Center, N, NW, S. [Naturally you can repeat this order in
 a 90-degree turn; it doesn't really matter.] Save before going north...

  The final battle in chapter two is against all the prophets, although their
  HP and abilities have been nerfed, mostly because they've got a lickin' in
  previous skirmishes. However, that doesn't mean they can't kill someone if
  they gang up! For this reason, use Extension + Protect and, later on, do
  the same for Valiant. Overall, not too hard -- once a few targets are dead,
  then do the Gella/Lucky Card stuff.

AFTERMATH     [CHP3]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Following Yggdrasil events, everyone returns to Boot Hill. Clive says that
 there's a new job from the Ark of Destiny, so that's the next stop.

 Lamium wants everyone to dispose of a mine shaft that's become a monetary
 burden and a potential hazard for townfolk. Albert places the location at
 halfway between Claiborne and Jolly Roger. [Before leaving, get the two Name
 Tags in the basement duplicator room, which requires Galecrest.] The dungeon
 is quite easy to find, really: go east along the coast from Ka Dingel and

 NOTE: Black Puddings can drop Dark Rings! Use Flash Hit, Extension + Specter,
       and Mystic + Light Gem to kill 'em en masse.

 Helga provides the details for the job: the timebomb is deep in the mine and,
 when activated, the team will have to rush to the entrance to avoid being
 turned into little chunklets. Clive's bargaining skills raise the reward from
 11000g to 15000g, too.

 --- No map should be needed, as it's straightforward to and fro. ---

 Screen 02: Throw a small crate at the pyramid switch to open the door
 Screen 04: Step on the floor switch surrounded by crates
 Screen 05: Flip the door's lever
 Screen 06: Flip the door's lever
 Screen 07: A crate has a [Potion Berry] inside
 Screen 08: Flip the door's lever
 Screen 10: Get the Radical Sneakers tool

 The Radical Sneakers are Jet's final tool, which allows him to use certain
 springboard tiles to get to higher places (and occasionally, without using
 them). Use 'em in the final room to jump up to the timebomb -- save before
 triggering.

 The team will now have to flee back to the entrance (screen 1). The lowroad
 can be taken, but the game obviously wants one to take the highroad (requires
 Radical Sneakers) in order to save time. Remember that the timer will play
 even for the upcoming boss battle, so there's no time to waste in locating
 the exit! [The timer is 20:00]

  The boss isn't that strong, but heavily reduces damage while it's "closed".
  When it opens, exposing its fleshy underbelly, that's the right time to
  attack. There's 19:00+ minutes to do this in and the timer doesn't run while
  on menus, so Gella/Lucky Card and wait for the right moment to strike (Jet's
  Accelerator and Valiant helps). Avoid using light-elem attacks or it'll open
  and strike with Cocytus, the most powerful ice-elem attack.

 That ends the mission -- the cave is permanently destroyed and the 15000g
 reward can be picked up from Helga back at the Ark (west stairway).

 Gallows suggests seeing Granny again, and after everyone incurs her ire, she
 skips the history lesson and suggests everyone go to the World's Footprint.
 The dungeon is north of Infinitum, so it's along the way previously travelled
 to reach Nidhogg Pass. This time, when passing through the strait into the
 circular area around Yggdrasil's island, look west a little for a beach that
 takes everyone back south. In X/Y coordinates it's around (9395,15517), and
 actually ends up being directly north of Infinitum, which should help y'find
 its general region. [If you haven't bought the World Screen from Roykman, why
 don't you do that first...?]

        _| |_       door's open, tiptoe through -- moving in any other way'll
       |     |      create noise and shut the door. When Shane's sermon is
       |     |      done, the adjacent hallway leads to the next spot. [The
       |_   _|      blocked duplicator door here has Items #1-2 inside, but
         | |        it can't be obtained until after Virginia's final tool's
   START-|_|        located, awhile from now.]

 Continue until the room with 9 switches. The cryptic plaque (pictured below)
                          is the key. "N-S" means horizontally, "E-W" means
 |ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|  vertically. So, 2-2 would be the center tile, and
 | NS: 2 3 2 1 1 3 1 2 |  3-1 would be the SW tile, etc. Thus, the way to go
 | WE: 2 1 3 2 3 2 1 1 |  is: middle, SW, E, N, NE, S, NW, W. [The 3-3 tile
 |_____________________|  which is always depressed gives a clue to solving.]

 After the next lecture, the corridor will lead to an anteroom with Items
 #3-5 inside. Two screens later, this same setup allows one to get Items #6-8,
 the final ones (for now) in the dungeon. After the penultimate lecture, there
 will be a 4-block puzzle and a plaque that hints at their placement. Here's
 which colored tiles to put the blocks on: Green on NE, Yellow on SW, White on
 NW, and Gray on SE. Finally, hit the white block with a Tindercrest (tricky!)
 to change it to red. Save before to the final mural...

  Generally an annoying battle, as one boss can inflict instant death and the
  other can heal all allies (including self) without a trigger. Extension +
  Valiant immediately and aim for Leonhardt, who uses Critical Heal apx. every
  four turns. So, what's the best way to defeat someone in a short time? A
  Valiant-boosted Gatling of course! Mystic a Full Carrot (hopefully you've
  cultivated at least a few, as this is one of the few mandatory bosses where
  it can REALLY help) and have Virginia go to town, with the others backing
  her up. Once Leonhardt is out of the way, gun for Scarecrow, as his death-
  -inflicting attack is the only other real obstacle.

 Back at Baskar, Halle suggests awakening the powers of the Guardian Lords,
 who can perhaps assist in stopping the planet's demonification. The next
 morning, Clive suggests visiting a ruin he and his old professor explored,
 with only a [Map Shred] to help. The search for the guardian lords can be put
 off for awhile -- I'll organize them into a separate section when the time
 comes for their help.

 The map shred shows the location amidst some small islands...but where have
 we seen those before? If you look at the map screen, it's not that hard to
 spy the chain of fragmented land in the northeast of the map, southeast of
 the Boot Hill region. You may recognize this as an island overlooking the 2nd
 exit to Gemstone Cave. Land on the only beachable island

  This boss is nothing special, but it's got a lot of HP and has a ridiculous
  overpowered attack (Humbaba Curse) that can kill everyone instantly. So how
  to deal with it? Simple: Holy Grails and Amulets. By now, one Fallen Ward
  and three Amulets could've been obtained, which should protect everyone from
  instadeath, although that depends on how they're situated medium-wise. If
  y'don't want to switch things around to survive, use the death effect to
  your advantage, namely for Valiant-boosted attacks. Humbaba Curse is used
  every three turns and is prefaced by the "stench of death" quote, signaling
  its arrival. This means either (1) have all applicable people guard during
  the third turn to avoid death (2) inertia cancel an attack during the third
  turn and then guard, depending on RFX (use Decelerate in the early turns).
  [As someone who fully bred Full Carrots by now, Mystic-ing them and Gatling
  made this battle a lot easier than it would've been.]

 Afterward, get Item #11 on the ledge nearby and head to the northern room to
 pay respects. The suggestion of visiting Fila del Fia (not Philadelphia!) to
 locate a large generator is given.

LOCATING FILA DEL FIA
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Virginia says that something that fell from the sky would probably leave a
 big crater, and if you've explored around the world (or talked to Helga in
 Ark of Destiny), you'd know there's one south of Survey Point #17's former
 location. 

 NOTE: The Dust Men outside the dungeon can drop Moonstones (null: poison) if
       you still haven't gotten any. Since they appear in large groups (up to
       8!) this is the easiest method of obtainment yet! Naturally it's also
       the best way to increase everyone's MTC, too...

 containing items #1-3, including Clive's new tool. The Grappling Hook can be
 used to (1) hit ceiling switches (2) attached to overhead objects, which can
 let Clive jump off to a higher ledge. Employ the second tactic back in the
 hallway to get north. In the pipe room, inspect the blue console for a small
 scene, after which the way opens again.

 Beyond, use the grappling hook to hit the overhead switch, get Item #4, then
 visit the low exit. The thin path has breakaway tiles, but soft-walking will
 get one across (grab Item #5 with Steady Doll before continuing!). In the NW
 corner, where the white gems are, see the crack? Bomb it to find Items #6-8.

 Following another discussion, the next hallway has a block-n'-grapple puzzle
 -- just move the block stack two spaces north and grapple up to it. Save in
 the next pipe room 'cause after...

  The boss' best move (Backstab) is only used while invisible, a state brought
  on by being physically damaged -- this state is also immune to all physical
  attacks, including Lock On. Basically, the easiest way to get through is to
  either (1) have the people w/o Fallen Ward defend to trigger Status Guard,
  while the others go to work (2) do a pure arcana/summon match, which avoids
  Backstab's appearance -- the boss is weak to ice. Lucky/Gella Card this dude
  too, of course, and be lucky it's such a minor-league skirmish! [NOTE: Using
  Gatlings works fine here as only the final shot triggers the invisibility.]

 Now that chameleofreak's taking a dirtnap, find the stairway nearby. Turning
 the crankvalve here makes the switch's machine turn rightside-down, and Clive
 can freeze it to lock it in place. The alternative is hotfotting it down the
 stairs and triggering it with the hook, before its position is reset.

 Two screens past, a corridor eerily similar to the first encountered. Take
 the lower path to Items #9-10. North, inspect the console to see information
 about the city's energy: the Teardrop gem.

NEXT DESTINATION
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The final scene in Fila del Fia talked about a man in Claiborne, so that's
 the next stop. Give Myra the third degree to learn there's an abandoned tower
 nearby that used to exterminate monsters (should sound familiar for anyone
 who played Wild Arms 1). Search the northwest coastline overlooking Infinitum
 to locate...

 This tower's easy to navigate, so I'll just give a short overview.

 F1: The path is broken, so the far chest can't be obtained just yet.

 F2: There's a bubble trap here: basically bubbles continuously changes places
     around the room and if they hit a player, the pointman's trapped inside
     until enough squirming gets him/her out. Bombing the pointing switch'll
     deactivate the trap and open the door -- this is how it'll be from now
     on. The chest has [x2 Lucky Card] inside, and the stairway has two chests
     of its own: a [Potion Berry] and [Revive Fruit].

 F3: Past the jail cells...

 F4: Another bubble trap, only this time the radical sneaker pads are required
     to reach the pointy switch. A [Gella Card] is accessible here, and in
     the stairway antechamber, 3 chests: [Grab Bag], [AP Ammo], [Gimel Coin].
     The AP Ammo has a "DEF Null" ability that may make the target's defense
     zero for damage calculation, which may be useful for Virginia (if you've
     done the recommended 5BLT/10WGT setup. Save before heading onward...

  This battle's quite normal: defeat Todd first, the others after. The men've
  got a Trinity-style attack (Wild Bunch) now that can do 400-500 to everyone,
  so make sure to Extension + Valiant to take advantage of it. [They'll use
  it basically every turn until they can't any longer.] Extension + Protect'll
  be good for the 2nd half of the fight. This fight's pretty easy, although
  the rare Calamity Jane attack can do 1100-2000 damage to a target, so be on
  the lookout!

 Now to continue the normal stuff...

 F5: Jump on the button nearby to restore elevator power, and the 1F and 3F
     floors can be reached. Take the latter first and get a [Mega Berry], then
     the duplicator chest to claim a [Black Pass] for the Black Market, which
     we'll go to in a bit.

 F6: Here's a red bubble trap, although not much has changed. The NW corner's
     got two items accessible by grappling hook: [17000 Gella], [Growth Egg].
     The opposite corner has the deactivation/door switch.

 F7: More bubble traps and springboards for the radical sneakers. The series
     has a [Gimel Coin], [x3 Call Whistle], [Duplicator] to get.

 F8: After a scene, Alfred says the next direction to go is southeast of the
     tower.

LOCATING NEXT DUNGEON
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Going southeast is a pretty vague clue, so Todd suggests canvasing some of
 the locales nearby for clues. Dessinsey (Claiborne) says that the monsters
 the Caging Tower captured were taken to a place only accessible by air, for
 dissection. [Leaving town shows a scene, so y'must be on the right track!]
 So, the next portion will involve getting air transport. A lot of people're
 talking about "dragon wings," which should clue y'into the next part...

THE BLACK MARKET [OPTIONAL]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 So where's the Black Market located at? Surprisingly, it's the lawless town
 of Little Twister. Get to the back part of town and get on the outside part
 of the fence, and walk around until a shed (between Armsmith and large house)
 is found. Go downstairs to the door and select the Black Pass from the
 inventory to get in.

 The inventory is pretty basic to start with, but there are ways to increase
 what's sold (1) items fully bred in Secret Garden can be bought here (2) some
 gears, particularly status and elemental types, can be obtained here if one
 is sold.

ENTERING THE INNER SEA
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This is quite easy, although it requires sandcraft battling. Upgrade the
 ship's cannon to Ark Smasher (or Scud Cannon III if you have somehow managed
 to _not_ get 50 dragon fossils) and traverse northeast a bit, to the strait
 near Secret Garden's location -- it's blocked by debris. Approach it and a
 fight with the Balal Quo Naga serpent plays out. Basically just fire your
 entire payload at it to do 300,000+ damage. After, the monster's thrashing
 will break the debris and give access!

 There's really only a couple places to go here, and one of them's a town! To
 find Laxisland, head to the northern island in the sea -- the one with all
 the pointy rocks -- and search by the elevated NE coast.

LAXISLAND
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Loot the place first...

 • Tool: Kramer Dolls - talk to Armsmith
 • Revive Fruit ------- barrel by armsmith
 • Revive Fruit ------- breakable barrel
 • Name Tag ----------- bar barrel (2F)
 • Gimel Coin --------- bar barrel (2F)
 
 The Kramer Dolls are Gallows' last tool, which can be used to summon monsters
 to the party or -- in the case of optional bosses -- force them into battle.
 Zim talks about everyone who went to the "south fire mountain" died after
 owning them...hmm... Roykman also talks about a town at [X:11890, Y:14230],
 which is rather accurate for normal chit-chat. 

 The "south fire mountain" is actually a volcano, and searching around its
 base will reveal...

 As expected, this volcano is circular in nature, so it'll require revisiting
 and passing rooms plenty of times -- kinda confusing. Make way to the north
 side of the interior to find a ladder, leading up to Items #1-2. There's a
 bombable blocked-up doorway to the south, and once through, fall down the
 pit to land by Item #3. Continue onward and the path meanders to Item #4,
 which has the third bombable doorway (this is a running theme). A bifurcation
 later, get Items #7-8 in a dead-end section, then #5-6 in the east, which is
 also by a ladder. Follow this path until there's another hole to fall down,
 which winds back south to the ladder first seen by the entrance. [This is the
 part of the map that leads to the boss.] Save before going into the tunnel
 past the small bridge, as everyone'll be trapped by debris...and it's the
 kind a few bombs won't budge.

 At the volcano's cone, play Gallows' Kramer Dolls to invoke the wrath of...

  For a lauded dragon, this fight's sure a one-trick pony. The boss' only
  offensive attack (Missile Might) is preceded by its stat-buffing abilities.
  Whoever has Eraser should be using it every turn, while the others simply
  beat the crap out of the boss -- Fragile, Extension + Valiant, etc.

 Afterwards, Lombardia will join if her questions are answered "I want what
 you want," "Yes," "I will give you something more," and "Something to quench
 your desire." Pick any others and the boss will barbeque you on the spot,
 like homegrown human burgers. [The ingratiating answers to the dragon's Q's
 are hinted at back in Laxisland, such as the bar's bookshelf and Laura.]

 Lombardia can fly around and land in most places, although for some rocky
 areas, she can't (is the wittle dwagon afwaid? Haha...) -- horses will be
 required for faster transport. Awesomely, R2 button will fire missiles and
 this comes into play when unblocking straits or destroying those feeble gray
 rocks on land.

 Just inside, use a duplicator to get Item #1 in its lonely anteroom. Through
 the tiny divided corridor, enter the room with one gigantic movable block
 (Mighty Gloves). Moving it east will let Virginia Galecrest to Item #2's
 room, while pushing it far south, then back north lets it be used as a bridge
 to the west. Items #3-4 are imprisoned in the tiny cells beyond, which can
 be opened by dashing into the bars (that's using yer head). Get the breakable
 crates' Heal Berry before letting Todd two-shot the strange red door nearby.

 The next chamber is a lever puzzle, but get Item #6 first. Stand on the sunken
 middle partition and hit the southernmost switch, which lifts everyone up to
 the ledge. Get Item #7 down the hall -- easy-peasy. The next strange red door
 will be destroyed in a plot-like fashion, so no worries there. The next
 two-block puzzle is easy to solve: move the northern of the two north once,
 east once. However, pushing the southern of the two blocks away reveals a
 hidden entrance, to Items #8-9 and the optional boss Heimdall Gazzo -- I'd
 suggest fighting it way, way later. Once across the block puzzle, make sure
 to get Item #10!

 North, pick Item #09. After Alfred's explosion scene, flip through its pages
 to uncover the [Card Key] hidden inside -- this is important for later on.
 Get Item #11 in a breakable crate, save, and use a duplicator on the sideroom
 to fight...

  Every other turn Sadas will kamikaze on someone; and every other turn Sadas
  Jr. will revive him. So how to proceed? Well, you can wait it out and attack
  Junior in the downtime after his "parent's" death but before reviving, which
  is similar to defeating Balazs during his Outer World attack. Or, you can
  Mystic a Full Carrot and have everyone summon which should do ginormous
  amounts of damage (the bosses have no elemental resistance) and stop Sadas
  from taking his junior's damage. [Sadas has nigh perfect DEF so he'll take
  0 damage from physical attacks.] Also, Sadas' kamikaze attack is equal to
  his current HP -- so at best it's 2400. Make sure to Lucky/Gella card this
  delinquent duo.

 Following, go north from where the Paperback was obtained and inspect the
 tiny eastern console for a scene. This plots the next stop as...the Ruin of
 Memory!? But we beat that forever ago!

       _|_BOSS|      Since this place has been visited and looted before, I'll
      |   | |Ż       skip the retreading and assume one knows the gist of this
      | * | |___     place.
 ___  |_  |_    |    
|   | |     |Ż| |    Remember how there was a section of this dungeon that was
 Ż| |_|_   _|_| |    left the first time, basically the middle? That's now the
  |   <-| |->   |    destination. Get to the NW corner of the main hall --
  | |ŻŻŻ| |ŻŻŻ| |    marked "A" on the map -- and use Clive's grappling hook
  |_ Ż|Ż   Ż|Ż _|    to get to the upper ledge. [The plaque about wiping a
    | |     | |      teardrop from one's eye sure makes sense now!]
   _| |     | |_     
 _|  _ Ż A|Ż _  |    There's a lantern statue puzzle beyond. The easiest way
|     |ŻŻŻ  | | |    to solve is inspecting the two west/eastmost, then the
|     |     | | |    middle. In the painting room past the bridge, only one
|_   _|_   _|_| |_   can be inspected: "Fire". Obviously, Tindercrest the
|     | | | |     |  priceless tapestry to reveal the entrance!
|     |_|_|_|     | 
|_________________|  Right after, there'll be a door blocking the way. If not
       _|^|_         done yet, inspect the Paperback picked up in Dissection
      |     |        Facility to get the Card Key, which opens the door. The
      |START|        mythical Teardrop (also a throwback to Wild Arms 1!) is
      |_   _|        obtained thereafter.

 The Teardrop is an "infinite item," something that never runs out. It can be
 used in battle only through the Mystic command, and even then, it affects one
 person at a time (a huge break in Mystic's functionality).

 You'll notice no gimel-coin saving's possible. That only means that, as soon
 as one backtracks far enough...

  Apparently old dogs can't learn new tricks -- the prophets may have changed
  their wardrobe but their skills are the same as ever. Malik's penchant for
  using Disorder earns him highest priority (Decelerate first), while Leehalt
  remains obstinately defense-oriented, which makes him low priority. Melody's
  fixation on Clive remains and she attacks him relentlessly, and even boosted
  her barrier to guard attacks under 500 damage. Lucky/Gella Card when y'can,
  as there's no surprises here.

 Afterwards, Alfred pinpoints' the prophets signal at [X:14470, Y:17570], west
 of Laxisland. Basically search the middle of the plateau nearby.

38) Cradle of the Metal God     [WK38]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 When uncovered, try to enter from the world map and a defensive system will
 rebuff the team -- another way in will have to be found. Lamium at the Ark of
 Destiny says an alternate tunnel was constructed to infiltrate COTMG, but a
 cave-in halted operations. Its location? West of Survey Point #17; or, NW of
 COTMG. Past the landbridge, look for a large gray rock against the cliff and
 have Lombardia dispose of it. Search in its place to find the dungeon! [NOTE:
 Lamium's help is mandatory; reading the book at the library, even though it
 gives the exact coordinates, is not enough.]

 Unfortunately, this dungeon's door is blocked by a wicked miasma. Only the
 help of the four Guardian Lords is enough to overpower the seals, so the next
 step is finding 'em. Yeah, we put it off for awhile...

 An overview first. The four guardian lords are sealed within four idols, and
 before their mediums can be obtained, the idols must be obtained. They're
 strewn around the world and there's not too many clues to their whereabouts,
 at least in some cases. [I'll also put other odds and ends in this section
 after the main part, since getting Lombardia opens up other stuff, too.]

 NOTE: If you want to get a statue and then fight the lord immediately, rather
       than waiting until all are collected, that's fine, too.

OBTAINING: GODDESS IDOL
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Not surprisingly, the destination actually isn't in an accessible part of the
 world...yet. The first step in finding it is opening a way into the inner
 sea which, if you look at the map, is only possible from one place: a strait
 near Secret Garden, blocked by rubble. To find it, go under the natural
 bridge near Jolly Roger and turn towards the verdant cliff the Secret Garden
 resides on. Approach the rocks and a boss fight with the gigantic Balal Quo
 Naga starts! 

 NOTE: Before fighting the Balal Quo Naga, upgrade your sandcraft's weapon to
       the best it can be. [The Scud Cannon III is an alright replacement for
       the Ark Smasher, although it could be said if you're going to waste a
       bunch of dragon fossils, y'might as well go all the way.]

 The giant serpent boss can heal itself to full, which is why one must strike
 quickly to defeat it (it's got about 100,000 HP). Using a good weapon and
 the gunner's "fire all ammo at once" option, it's pretty easy to defeat it.
 For instance, with the Ark Smasher alone, it does 300K damage. [20K EXP, 24K
 Gella; win: 24x Dragon Fossil]

 With Balal in the throes of intense pain, the strait becomes unblocked by its
 thrashing -- the inner sea can now be accessed! A [Suitcase] is obtained and,
 if given to Emilia back in Jolly Roger, the team obtains the [Goddess Idol]
 is obtained. This is a mandatory item used for upcoming Guardian quest, so
 put it somewhere safe!

OBTAINING: WOLF IDOL
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 People in the world may've talked about a rich merchant who bought this item
 (such as Becky in Claiborne) near Boot Hill. Naturally, it's the guy who used
 to inhabit Gob's Hideout! So that's the next stop. Enter the room near where
 Virginia started (now the "end") with all the breakaway floor tiles and jump
 up the tiny steps with the radical sneakers. Upstairs is the idol and a few
 other treasures (Tiny Flower, Gimel Coin, Duplicator).
 
OBTAINING: LION IDOL
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Before one's able to get this item, Gunner's Heaven must first be uncovered,
 but at least it needs no hint. Basically fly to the western part of Yggdrasil
 Island and find the train tracks; then, search near the southern point to
 locate. Basically, the point of coming here is winning the Novice League (a
 2000g entrance fee required) to obtain the Item Scope, which lets one see
 nearby items on the map. Without it, the idol cannot be obtained! It's not
 that hard to win five battles in 25 turns, especially if one's Mystic-ing
 Full Carrots.

 NOTE: If you can't find Gunner's Heaven on the map, try talking to Von in
       Little Rock -- he gives directions.

 Datson in Humphrey's Peak talks about the Gemstone Cave having an alternate
 entrance and how artifacts may be there -- pretty thin lead but that's what
 y'gotta go on. [See map in WK21 for entrance's location.] Once on the world
 map in the area where Lombardia can't land, search around for the idol at
 [X:20923, Y:16504].

OBTAINING: DRAGON IDOL
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 NOTE: See the Migrant Level section below before doing this part. Coming in
       with a MLV of 15-16 ensures the way down isn't ridiculously annoying.
       Naturally y'should have gotten some Booster Kits earlier to add +10 to
       the ENC gauge, making it easier to evade battle that way, too.

 Y'may have heard that Little Rock is the place to learn about Zephyr, the
 Hope Guardian. Mock (the little kid) will say that in the mountains past the
 southern desert, there's a deep crevasse -- The Abyss. To find it, go east
 past the Secret Garden, to the region with tall red-brown cliffs. There'll be
 a mountain pass stuffed up with debris that Lombardia has to clear, and at
 the end of that path is the dungeon in question. [Try to have a high Migrant
 Level before coming in, to avoid a lot of battles.] [X/Y: 25231,10234]

 The Dragon Idol is ten floors down in the hands of a boss. To clear each
 level, all ENC crystals (these refill percentages of the gauge instead of a
 fixed +1) must be collected, and that opens the teleporter down a floor.
 Remember: if you're low on ENC gauge, you can fall off the platforms' edge to
 imminent battle. On the 10th floor...

  Ephrem Zein uses "Prepare Intercepts" first thing each turn, in which it
  readies itself to counter any attack with Luminous Impact. Toward the end of
  the turn its cancel its interception stance, so any attack following that
  is free and clear. This leaves to options to attack without retaliation: (1)
  before it can prepare intercepts, such as with Jet's Accelerator ability (2)
  after it cancels its stance. Slower characters like Clive can probably get
  in their attacks naturally, while others probably need to have Replay cast
  on them for extra oomph. (3) if everyone has Light Ward on, such as by
  farming gears in Shimmering Emblem, just attack normally. This battle's not
  hard inherently, but it does take a bit of time if y'want to avoid Luminous
  Impact. [The boss has automatic Reflect, too.] As someone who cultivated most
  things in the Secret Garden, all it took was Mystic-ing a Full Carrot every
  now and then and having Jet & Clive go to town. [Make sure to Lucky/Gella
  Card here!]
 
 Afterwards, make sure to leave the Abyss!

FIGHTING THE GUARDIAN LORDS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Just as Mad Max had a Thunderdome, so do our four adventurers have their own
 guardian-bashin' arena: Fallen Sanctuary. Up the stairs, those pads for the
 Radical Sneakers lead to each of the reliefs where one can fight the lords.
 Use Gallows to read which monolith belongs to which guardian, then offer up
 the appropriate idol (manually from inventory) to fight it.

 Any particular order to doing this? Not really.

 WOLF IDOL ----> Luceid
 LION IDOL ----> Justine
 DRAGON IDOL --> Zephyr
 GODDESS IDOL -> Raftina

 Defeating a guardian lord powers lets one power up 2 of the 8 normal mediums
 (each time). Since all will be powered-up by the end, picking which ones to
 do first doesn't matter that much.

  Luceid makes a good first target since it's the least annoying battle of the
  four, i.e. easiest. Extension + Valiant/Protect takes care of the defensive
  angle, while Virginia can keep everyone's spirits high by Mysticking some
  carrots (Full preferred). Luceid's attacks are pretty bland, especially if
  y'have Dark Ward on a few people -- Dark Luceid in particular does 0 damage!
  Use Fragile and go to town, basically, but don't waste any Gella Cards (for
  obvious reasons).

  The second-easiest boss is Raftina, mostly because her attacks aren't that
  damaging -- she 's just capable of healing herself a decent amount. Her Copy
  Ability tech lets her use the targets' arcana, which is her main method of
  attack. Erect Extension + Valiant/Protect for good measure, since all her
  arcana attacks are automatically slated to hit everyone. Luckily, she only
  heals about every 5-6 turns, leaving plenty of time to mystic Full Carrots
  and bombard her with Gatlings. This is one instance where having everyone
  damaged helps, as it improves Valiant's bonus damage a significant degree.

  This battle's pretty normal except for one thing: Exploder. When it works,
  it makes the target a living bomb. When that person automatically dies a few
  turns later, half of the current HP is transferred to everyone in damage! So
  if Gallows has 3300 HP and dies at max HP, everyone's hit for 1650 -- that
  hurts in a big way. Luckily, by using Extension + Reflect it can be totally
  rebuffed and everyone can attack like normal. [Also, since Exploder is a
  status, anyone defending with Status Ward should be able to brush it off as
  well.] In case someone turns into a suicide bomber, keep Virginia's FP high
  enough (50+?) so she can heal everyone and still have functionality the next
  turn as well.

  can instantly kill targets, and even if it doesn't, Hyper-boosted damage
  ain't no fun (someone will have to Eraser him every so often to avoid extra
  suffering). Unfortunately, the attack is not used like clockwork, so it can
  show up every 4-6 turns or back-to-back...on the flipside, it CAN miss.

 With all guardians defeated, y'may want to consider changing mediums around.
 Yeah, I know, you have gears and are accustomed to 'x' character using 'y'
 arcana. Still, shuffling a few things in order to highlight Extension is a
 good idea. So, although optional, here's my setup:

              OLD                          NEW
 Virginia -> Aqua Wisp, Lucky Hand         Aqua Wisp, Lucky Hand, Lust Jaw
 Clive ----> Gale Claw, Moon Spark         Gale Claw, Moon Spark, Flash Hit
 Jet ------> Fiery Rage, Cosmic Cog        Fiery Rage, Cosmic Cog, Love Charm
 Gallows --> Terra Roar, Flash Hit         Terra Roar, Brave Seal, Hope Shard

 Hope Shard can be swapped for Love Charm in certain cases, such as fighting
 Creeping Chaoses, where status protection makes a lot of sense. But that's
 not that important for now...

OPTIONAL: Ballack Rise     [X/Y: 11901,14250]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This hideaway town is on a cliff north of Baskar Colony, inaccessible by any
 normal means except air. It's quite easy to find, although y'may have to talk
 to Marty (Ark of Destiny) to get a hint about it. Either way, time to loot
 these folks!

 • Migrant Seal ---- bar barrel (2F)
 • Mini Carrot ----- breakable crate, bar roof
 • Duplicator ------ eastern, lower porch by broken stairs
 • Grab Bag -------- chest by telescope
 • Mini Carrot ----- chest by Armsmith's

OPTIONAL: Teleport Orb/Tracker/Weather Vanes
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Millennium Puzzle #14 -- [X:21380, Y:5749] -- gives up this fantastic item,
 which allows one to teleport to any town visited so far. The bonus is that
 all vehicles will teleport to the nearest applicable location as well, and
 if you plan on finishing the Teleport Tower sidequest, this is a required
 item! [See Millennium Puzzle section on solving this.]

 Millennium Puzzle #10 -- [X:16030, Y:18899] -- is on a cliff near Laxisland,
 and when the marginally difficult puzzle's beaten, the Tracker is obtained.
 This works similar to the system in Serpent's Coils, letting one see where
 they are, where they've been, and any places yet unexplored.

 Millennium Puzzle #07 and #11 both have a Weather Vane gear, which teaches
 Eagle Eye to a character. This prevents "ambush" scenarios where one ally's
 separated from the group and the entire enemy force gets to beat on him/her.
 With these two, plus the one at World's Footprint and Cosmic Cog's inborn
 skill, everyone can prevent this status. Is this important? If you want to
 go through The Abyss later on, then definitely. THERE IS A FINITE AMOUNT OF
 THESE so don't go around selling them for chump change -- you'll regret it!

OPTIONAL: Migrant Levels
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 There's a few just laying around, so why not pick them up? [Item Scope from
 Gunner's Heaven is required for this.]

 ( 6516,11243) - See: Sunset Peak section below
 ( 7571, 7927) - Little Twister area
 ( 7606,13780) - Cliff NW of Infinitum
 (15939,18178) - Laxisland double beach area
 (22927, 9283) - Eastern Fortune Gear area

 Millennium Puzzle #18, on the tiny island southeast of Yggdrasil's landmass,
 also has a migrant seal, although it has to be won, of course.

OPTIONAL: Sunset Peak     [X/Y: 7320,11339]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 NOTE: This requires the Teleport Orb

 Y'may have heard about people disappearing from the Southfarm train near
 Boot Hill. This is due to them carrying a Teleport Orb as they go through the
 tunnel! So, book a train to East Highlands (1600g) and instead of the proper
 destination, everyone ends up at Sunset Peak, the abandoned/unfinished rail
 station. [Bump into the lamp post to obtain an EX File Key!]

 The main reason to come out here is obtaining some items in the otherwise
 untraversable, unobtainable land. There's a Migrant Seal a little southwest
 of the station, by the coast.

OPTIONAL: Teleport Tower Quest
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Note that this is covered in-depth elsewhere, but a note about this: this is
 a glitched sidequest so y'may end up accidentally skipping it if it's put off
 too long! Basically, talk to Ventura in Laxisland and he should talk about
 "forces of chaos" invading the land. What y'need to do at this point is find
 at least one Telepath Tower, which are found in vacant zones of the world.
 Two examples: across the gorge near Sunset Peak and near the Jolly Roger's
 cliff, behind the rock that Lombardia can blow up.

 If the quest is started now, then it can definitely be finished! I'll say
 the cutoff point later on, too.

  |___| | |     the first method is used to trigger a switch.
        | |
        |_|    A ways down the hall, there's a similar ledge setup -- this
       START   time, use Clive to stack the blocks and walk/Glidecrest across
               the bridge to the room with Items #4-6. Back in the hall, the
 path behind the orange blocks leads to an abyss room. Changecrest the three
 blocks, then Galecrest over to avoid a nasty plummet-to-your-death scenario.
 Item #7's nearby, too, the incredible Violator!

 Violator's Finest Arts ability says "Increases the power of a combination
 attack" but what this really means is that it can make Gatling into the
 ultimate killing machine. Basically, the 5th hit in a barehanded Gatling'll
 do enormous damage, often (LV*1000). So who should get the Violator? Clive's
 a good candidate, given his enormous ATT and relatively low bullet count.
 NOTE: A monster in The Abyss can drop Violators if y'need more, but it's a
 rare occurance so choose wisely now.

 Past the Violator chest is a hallway where Clive has to put two blocks on
 two switches -- yawn. The ensuing chamber has 8 switches and 8 blocks, which,
 again, takes no skill to complete. The T-crossing's northwest antechamber has
 Items #8-10; to get across the next ledge, stack the 4 blocks so Virginia's
 able to Glidecrest over. There, the Changecrest'll get everyone through the
 lattice barricade.

 After a scene, the next room shows to be a semi-repeat of a previous. C'crest
 the 3 orange blocks and the nearby crystal, then Steady Doll the heavy blocks
 off the Glidecrest path. Once across, move the remaining orange block above
 the crystal and let a falling boomerang trigger it. Whew! The adjacent room's
 got 4 crystals and a plaque talking about a jewel thief "using wits instead
 of relying on speed." This means, to open the door, change all VIT crystals
 into blocks, align them in an easy pattern, and Changecrest them again. If
 the pointman doesn't collect them quickly enough, new ones respawn and the
 whole thing has to be redone.
 
 Finally, inspect the far corridor door (or a corridoor as I call it...haha?)
 to end the dungeon. No boss? Weaksauce. The next dungeon starts automatically
 after.

 NOTE: This dungeon's straightforward so no map needed.

 After meeting up with the Schroedingers, inspect the weird orb nearby to
 be healed up properly. Southeast a bit, there'll be a corridor filled with
 searchlights, and avoiding them's a good idea. To disable, shoot them with
 the Grapple Hook (while standing underneath of course). Stand on the switch
 and Steady Doll the exit open after the coast's clear. Save before entering
 the next chamber...

  When Ose is in its formless, amoebalike state, it's immune to physical
  damage. Using Refrigerate/Ice Gem will harden it a bit and force it into
  its panther form temporarily, during which everyone can beat up on it Ose
  their preferred fashion -- Extension + Hyper/Valiant, Fragile, etc. Even
  Virginia, who hadn't had her ARMs' ATT upgraded ever, was doing 700+, if
  that's an indication of how lame this boss is. Evil Gaze can inflict some
  paralysis, but that threat should've been eradicated as early as Ka Dingel,
  so...yeah.

 Past there, hit the elevator console's switch and head to 2F. Here, there'll
 be more searchlights to destroy, and one room even has lasers (use Radical
 Sneakers to jump over and/or cling onto mesh overhang). After an Asgard
 scene, continue to another room with mesh overhangs and moving platforms.
 Use the Rad Sneaks (their pimpin' name) to get on the 2nd mesh net, which one
 can flip up to hit the door switch. Getting to the door isn't that hard, but
 the platforms do move with faster frequency so time the jumps/falls to avoid
 plunging into the pit.

 The sideroom here is where Malik was in a previous scene, and one of the
 computers refills everyone's HP, VIT, and ENC gauges -- schwing! Save before
 continuing into the hallway's next room.

  On the whole, this battle's not much different than previous encounters with
  the duo, except Melody inflicts more damage. If plenty of people are still
  susceptible to Confusion, use Status Lock or Status Guard to buy time. Using
  Extension + Valiant/Hyper is the easiest path, although Finest Arts is still
  there as a fallback plan. [Malik must be Decelerated or physical attacks
  miss...but y'already know that, I'm sure.] Lucky/Gella Card like usual, too.

 Southeast of there, another room with searchlights. Destroy the lower ones
 like normal and use Steady Doll on the guarded upper lever to escape. The
 elevator leads to 3F, and after a scene, locate the nearby lasergrid traps
 that are evaded like normal -- the twist is a high switch that can only be
 triggered by ricocheting a boomerang from atop the last mesh net. Save in the
 next hallway, before proceeding onto the outer terrace...

  Yes, that is the correct HP value -- 100K! Luckily this battle's fought by
  Lombardia during the getaway. Sort of like the Sandcraft battles, Lombardia
  gets 4 actions per turn, performed in order of RFX. She's got the same
  abilities as back in Dragon's Den, plus a few other commands: Draconic Gun
  Blaster and Self-regeneration. Basically, have the quickest people cast
  some buffs the first turn, and the 2nd turn, use Mighty Might while having
  the slowest person cast Draconic Gun Blaster, Lombardia's ultimate attack.
  Without the damage limiter, it should do 100,000+ damage and finish this
  sucker in style.
  
 That effectively ends the Cradle portion of the game. The Deus Ex Machina
 fortress is now airborne and cloaked, and more Wyverns are dispersed so there
 are now air battles available (although they'll quit being available when the
 next dungeon's defeated). Wyverns give the same EXP/Gella amounts in random
 battles too, so it helps to milk the situation for what it's worth if y'need
 to upgrade ARMs or buy stuff from the Black Market.

LOCATING NEXT DUNGEON
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The wizard stealth mode of Deus Ex Machina makes it invisible, but there's
 still a method to finding it. Since it's giving off inordinate amounts of
 heat, it'll shimmer in the air -- once found, Lombardia's missiles will
 disable its function and let one infiltrate the base.

 NOTE: Before starting the next dungeon, begin the Telepath Tower sidequest!
       If you don't, it'll glitch somehow and prevent one from finishing, and
       that's no fun at all. [All you need to start it is making a tower show
       up on the world map; after that, it's always active and can be done at
       a later time if y'choose.]

OPTIONAL: Changecrest Treasures
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 With the final tool obtained, there's a ton of stuff to do around the world
 treasure-wise. Most involve backtracking to previous dungeons, although some
 of the town(ish) places have animals that can be turned into items (use the
 Radar to see suspicious things). Here's the list! [NOTE: If you're going to
 the Greenlodge item, get the Teleport Orb first so it's not such a chore to
 get back from.]

 This place is pretty straightforward, 

 Up the stairs, there's a moving lasergrid similar to seen before -- these'll
 be destroyed with bombs. Beyond the orange Changecrest blocks, there's a room
 with moving pistons that are supposed to form a bridge...but they're moving
 in a scattershot way. See the red emblem? Freezer Doll that to temporarily
 render the pistons inert, then cross across and flip the upper door switch to
 continue.

 Destroy a couple lasergrids and continue until a Schroedinger scene. After,
 the adjacent room contains Deus Ex Machina's main control panel, and one over
 is DEM's sub-panel. Inspect both and Maya will have everyone return to the
 main panel, where the team splits again. [Todd can heal everyone up here,
 if asked.] At the sub-panel, there'll be a 10-second timer to input Maya's
 shutter code. It's a 5-button input so it's pretty easy. Moving along...
 ___________
|    _ _    |  There'll be a lot of floor buttons to use and four movable
|   |_|_|   |  blocks: 3 two-by-twos and one tiny one. These all must be used
|  _|_|_|   |  to depress the floor buttons to exit. The solution's not that
| |_|_|X|   |  hard, of course. Where the "X" is on the diagram is the tiny
| |_|_|Ż|Ż| |  block's location, while the bigger ones fill in the other spots.
|     |Ż|Ż| |  No order's required, although the middle of the big blocks has
|      Ż Ż  |  to go in the SE corner, since it's up against the wall.
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Further in, a conveyor belt has a bunch of switches and blocks. Naturally the
 switches must be boomeranged, but obstacles can't be knocked into the abyss
 so it becomes a battle of correct timing. Since everything speeds up as each
 successive switch is triggered, hitting the farthest away may be easiest.
 In the next hallway, save before going east.

  This battle's not that out of the ordinary except for Contaminated Crust,
  an unblockable global effect that makes all allies lose one-tenth of their
  HP at the end of each turn. If you're not going to use Finest Arts to make
  quick work of this failosaurus rex, Extension + Hyper/Valiant and Fragile
  the dude. Using wind-elemental attacks encourages a Fafnir Horn counter, so
  just feed it bullets instead.
  
 Following, the next major room encountered has a mobile grappling hook pad,
 which must be ridden to the center platform. There, a boomerang switch queues
 a 2nd hook pad that leads to the exit. These criss-cross narrow platforms so
 time each drop carefully if y'don't wanna restart. Save before entering the
 nanomachine plant's heart next door...

  This battle's basically the same as the last tri-prophet skirmish, except
  Malik starts out in normal form (no Deceleration required). Since he'll spam
  Disorder with reckless abandon, it's time to put him six feet under for good!
  Leehalt's defensive posturings means he should be last target, despite having
  the most powerful Eliminate Scanner. Remember that Extension + Protect will
  mitigate that damage. [Melody's barrier is aesthetics only -- in practice,
  it doesn't exist.] Gella/Lucky Card if y'want to.

 Following, inspect the nanomachine console for a scene, then continue on. The
 path will break to trap everyone in while a movable wall pushes everyone into
 a pit...or at least that's how it's supposed to happen. In actuality, Freezer
 Doll the thing then blow it up with Clive's explosives. Upstairs, there'll be
 another shutter requiring a button input to open, this one having 10 instead
 of five. Save before entering, keeping Maya's clue in mind...

  This battle's really quite easy, despite Sieg resurrecting Negative Rainbow
  from the grave. The catch is that, after about 10-15K damage, he'll use the
  Teardrop to smooth over all damage...and that's a problem. Maya's impatient
  suggestion of just stealing it is actually the correct course -- Pickpocket
  Siegfried to take the gem, preventing him from curing any longer. [Is it
  possible to win by using Finest Arts? Yes, but then you don't obtain the
  Teardrop, so avoid that outcome.] Lucky Card before ending!

 With everything seemingly under control, return to the entrance the hard way
 (but not before seeing Maya's nerdy researcher outfit, haha).

  This fight isn't that different from trashing a Wyvern, except it's got a
  bunch of different attacks. Like usual, have the quickest person use Mighty
  Might and the slowest person use Draconic Gun Blaster; in-between, buff out
  Lombardia with the other two abilities. Since Sieg can't buff his stats, he
  is susceptible to a OHKO! That's ending the battle (and chapter) with style.

 After a celebration (and Virginia maybe getting tipsy! Ruh-roh) it's time to
 look for Shane -- he's by a building. The next day, it turns out one has to
 visit the Sacrificial Altar north of Baskar. It's literally right over the
 cliff from the colony, near the blocked-up strait that Ballack Rise overlooks.
 [Or, if you haven't found Ballack Rise, the dark-colored cliff overlooks.]

  Hydra's weakness is ice, but if you recall Halle's advice, the boss will
  restore its health (the WA3 equivalent of regrowing heads) to avoid death.
  Fire-elemental damage is the key, and each dose will reduce the amount of
  health Vitalizer restores. For instance, it normally heals 11000 HP, then
  each fire attack halves that -- do this until the amount is minuscule. The
  boss mostly just spams Maelstrom, so if any teammates have Water Ward, the
  battle ends up being a lot easier than normal (damage is usually 300-500/per
  around Lv50). Extension coupled with Valiant or Hyper, plus Protect and
  Permanence, should serve one well in the battle. [And if needed, use Finest
  Arts to kill the boss before it can heal itself.] Note that the boss seems
  to get an MGR boost as its health wanes, resulting in Maelstrom's damage
  increasing almost twofold. [Gella/Lucky Card of course.]

 Afterwards, head north to a similar-shaped room and bomb the cracked eastern
 wall to find the remaining chests, Items #6-8. Downstairs, clean the muddied
 plaque with the Freezer Doll and learn the hint that said tool is used to
 make the invisible path over the abyss temporarily visible. Yeah, it's going
 Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade up in here. Save in the stairway before
 facing...

  Palette-swapping time already? Huzzah. Salamandra can't heal like the Hydra
  but he'll do his best to burn everyone to a crisp with all the fire-based
  attacks. Extension + Protect/Hyper/Permanence is a good idea to start off
  with, plus Fragile, while Virginia Mystics a Full Carrot so she's always 
  ready to heal when necessary. The boss is weak to ice but counters attacks
  of that type with Salamandra Burn -- since the attack does 2000+, feel free
  to NOT encourage its use. [It can still be used as a normal non-counter too.]
  Also, since Salamandra Burn's so damaging, having Virginia with the Green
  Thumb skill (from Dried Flower gear) is a great help, using Potion Berries
  to heal 2000 HP/per. Finest Arts is always there to get this battle over
  quickly, remember. [Use Gella/Lucky Cards when possible.]

 After some scenes, there'll be a rumbling on the world map, coming from the
 peninsula SE of Baskar Colony. Basically, instead of crossing the landbridge
 into Jolly Roger's area, go southeast to the deserted peninsula (has a few
 isles by it) and search.

 The 2nd room is blocked by stone talons, but one is cracked and bombable, so
 no problems there. The next room has dangerous acid in a center pool, and the
 only way to cross is by tossing a Changecrest (blindly, I might add) to the
 other side, hitting the ENC gem and forcing a warp. Toss from the stairs west
 of the entrance, of course.

 Upstairs, there's a similar Changecrest warp puzzle, but this time the gems
 float in midair while platforms pass underneath. Precise timing will let
 Virginia land safely; sloppy timing leaves her a smear at the pit's bottom.
 On 3F, destroy the stonelike talons by degradation of matter: freezing with
 Freezer Doll, dethawing with Tindercrest, explodin' with Bombs. Save before
 going into the 4F room...

  Gespenst halves all elements except darkness and light, his resistance and
  weakness, respectively. Since the boss automatically smoothes over physical
  damage when attacked, there's a few ways to defeat this dude: (1) Requiem
  arcana automatically kills him, since he's undead (2) arcana damage remains,
  so light-elem stuff is the way to go (3) Finest Arts can kill him before he
  heals totally. Requiem's the easiest way, though. Remember to use a Lucky
  Card! [How do you know Gespenst is undead? Well, that does mean "ghost" in
  German...]

 Following, the next staircase has a locked door. The switch'd cleverly hidden
 underneath the middle part of the walkway, so change the camera POV to locate
 the sucker. The low path leads upstairs to a room where snake statues circle
 the meandering walkway. Two chests -- the [Power Boost] and [Gimel Coin] --
 are in a sunken corner here. To reach, Galecrest off the closest edge, snatch
 the loot, and radsneak back up.

 The next room's highpath intersects a room previously seen, and a repeat of
 the last situation plays: Galecrest off the edge to (barely) land by a pad,
 then radsneak up to the next ledge. Save on the stairwell and have a showdown
 with a certain metalbrain in the next chamber...

  Not that different from previous battles, most of Asgard's attacks have
  been cast aside for the real meat of Asgard's arsenal. Wide Barrier's death-
  -inflicting attack should be less nail-biting, since at least three people
  should have Fallen Ward and others can still use Amulets (Status Guard) to
  block it. [It's only used once the entire battle, apparently.] Extension +
  Hyper/Valiant/Protect, then Permanence it. Having a well-healed team baits
  Barrier Flood's usage, and after that, he'll usually try to Barrier Storm
  everyone. Try to get a Gella/Lucky Card turn in there, too.

 After, the existence of another Demondor Pillar is uncovered, far northeast
 of the first -- by Humphrey's Peak! Once in town, Ricardo says a huge light
 pillar appeared in the southeast. Check out Clive's house first and he'll
 temporarily leave the party (his mediums stay with him).

 The next dungeon is actually located on one of the untraversable cliffs right
 by the Abyss, and if you look around, the only way in is a long, narrow,
 meandering cliff, south of Dune Canyon (!). Ride a horse all the way through
 and search around the scruffy ground to find...

 In the second room, the path bifurcates -- but without Clive, only the top
 route can be accessed (by Changecrest). East, the room has a bunch of tiered
 worm monsters poking out of the ground. Two are side-by-side next to the east
 ledge, and throwing the boomerang chops 'em down to size. The goal is to use
 'em as a step up via the Radical Sneakers. Downstairs, there'll be a fight
 when walking over the strange-looking platform... [Save in the stairway if
 y'want.]

  The boss commands some basic party-hitting elemental skills, but lets the
  player pick "how they want to die," i.e. what attack they'll be hit with.
  Naturally it's best to play off current resistances, or use Extension +
  Protect/Permanence to avoid indecision. The boss' MGR is pretty poor and
  attacks only do about 500 to each on a clean strike, so one less ally isn't
  the end of the world...

 Afterwards, Clive will enter the dungeon and have to take the lower of the
 two routes (bomb it open, whydontcha?). NOTE: Given how slow Clive is, solo
 battling can be a pain! Give him a Weather Vane (Eagle Eye) to avoid any
 ambush situations.

 Continue along to a room with some colored buttons. Blow up the weird machine
 to deactivate the others' barrier, now letting them move around. The team'll
 have to go through the dungeon separately until rendezvousing. I'll call the
 teams 'Clive' and 'Other' for a bit. [To switch between parties, select their
 tools from the menu.] 

 CLIVE: Step on orange button
 OTHER: Get [Revive Fruit] and [Lucky Card], step on blue button
 CLIVE: Get [25000 Gella] and [Potion Berry]
 OTHER: Step on east stairway's orange button
 CLIVE: Step on west stairway's blue button
 OTHER: Move to next stairway
 CLIVE: Step on orange button
 OTHER: Get [Gella Card] and [Adventure 8]; freeze worm, boomerang the switch
 CLIVE: Step on blue button
 OTHER: Rendezvous chamber -- step on red switch
 CLIVE: Go to rendezvous chamber

 Everyone'll have met up now and can travel as a single party! Put the blocks
 on all three switches to open a false wall to [Gimel Coin] & [Prism Crown].
 The Prism Crown can nullify all elemental attacks, meaning whomever has it
 equipped can discard space-wasting single-elemental wards. [No, it can't be
 bought from the Black Market...] 

 Downstairs, another pathway puzzle with snake statues. The red worm things
 here are immune to freeze, but a handy dose of Clive's bombs cuts 'em down
 to size, at least temporarily. Make way to the semitransparent worm thing in
 the room's center, then freeze-n'-bomb it to open the door. The next chamber
 has a speechy scene from Clive, and the room past there has another. Dungeon
 finished!

 Virginia suggests going to Boot Hill. The [Last Letter] at Ekatrina's grave

 and the password to the far computer console is also stated as "TOMORROW".
 The chests and optional boss here are both covered in the dungeon's optional

 stuff.

 Gallows suggests going to Baskar Colony -- do so. In the "free resting" hut,
 the plan's devised to use the Sacrificial Altar's cloister to reach the
 Nightmare Castle. [This is accessed by taking the outdoor path around the
 exterior, to the single room atop the temple.] Shane gives Gallows the cool
 Exodus Orb, which, when used, lets one return to the start of a dungeon --
 very handy for avoiding backtracking.

  Exiting Nightmare Castle leads back to Filgaia's world map. This is a good
  time to clear up any loose sidequests, as the Exodus Orb saves a lot of
  footwork! Some sidequests MAY become impossible to do after finishing the
  castle, so don't put 'em off (or at least, make a seperate save). Also,
  Secret Garden harvests aren't possible after finishing this dungeon, so be
  sure to do that first!

 The grand staircase in the foyer leads straight north to Beatrice, although
 she is guarded by a huge boss that uses all summons CONSECUTIVELY on the
 party when fought. However, by defeating a "Disaster" around the castle, it
 cuts off one summon from the boss' arsenal. Someone with one Prism Crown can
 probably get through alright, but that's the boring way to fight the boss!
 Here's how to open the doors in the foyer:

 • NW -> Use Grappling Hook on high-up globe switch in SE corner
 • W --> Press one of the wall buttons, then hit other with Steady Doll
 • SW -> On NE balcony, pull out third-from-north statue
 • SE -> Bomb the wall crack
 • E --> Throw a crate at the eastern pyramid switch
 • NE -> Use Tindercrest on NE unlit candelabra

 There's no particular order to do these in, and the bosses themselves aren't
 exactly difficult, but doing a bunch of mini-sections (some annoying) often
 puts off players who just ignore this aspect. However, we're not gonna. :D

  All Disasters are basically the same thing, only they each use a summon that
  corresponds to their element (Disaster Earth uses Planet Breaker, and so on)
  and has a different weakness (Earth is weak to wind, blah blah blah). There
  isn't anything particularly difficult about these bosses, so I'm only gonna
  list this fight once. Use Extension + Protect, Finest Arts, Gatling, etc to
  score a victory.

  WEST PATH
______________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Through the hallway, come to a 4-path maze and go west -- there should be a
 rose-pattern stone in the middle of the room, and it'll act as an indicator
 that the correct path is being taken. From the 1st "rose room" go:

 N > E > S > W > W

 This enters a circular room with 8 entrances. Go [N > NE > W > W] to find the
 boss, Disaster Wind

SOUTHWEST PATH
______________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 At the end of the hallway is a room with four plaques, nebulously clueing the
 player into how to destroy the southern dragon relief. The correct order is
 Tindercrest, Freezer Doll, Boomerang, Changecrest. South of there is a room
 with a rose picture on the floor and a 3x3 plot of blocks, where one must
 recreate the picture (using Mighty Gloves). Do the corners first since they
 have certain colors to 'em, then use the in-between blocks. If everything but
 the middle is correct, it's really easy to remedy that. Disaster Light is 
 down the hall.

______________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
SOUTHEAST PATH
______________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 There's an invisible path that can be temporarily seen by hitting the weird
 floating sculpture with Tindercrest, Boomerang, or Freezer Doll. It's rather
 easy as long as y'constantly check and don't get fooled by the reflective
 walls. [Freezer Doll works best here.] Past all these onionheads is Disaster
 Moon.

ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  EAST PATH
______________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Three crankvalves control the path's shape. Turn the north counterclockwise
 once, southern once clockwise, and middle twice counterclockwise. This makes
 the path to the next room accessible. There, hit the switch to make pistons
 come out of the wall at an astounding rate. Virginia has to time the action
 (actually, preempt) and Glidecrest across. Basically, as soon as the nearest
 retracts, start charging! Once across, use the Hookshot...err, Grappling
 Hook on the moving pad and on the rust-colored platform, the Rad Sneakers
 to pound it down to the lower path. Disaster Fire's in the final room.

______________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
NORTHEAST PATH
______________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Step on the brown tile and a path will be created, but it's mobile so the
 pointman has to keep moving (without falling off) or it's a long drop down.
 The first room like this isn't that hard, but the 2nd one is uber-meandering
 and not very fun to go through since more paths branch out of it and they're
 decoys that lead to failure. Make sure to Changecrest off to the last stop
 or it'll all be for naught! Disaster Water's in the ensuing chamber.

  Final Disaster can either be brutal or babylike, it all depends on the
  player's diligence! Normally it would use all of the Disasters' summons in
  a row; however, for each killed, its summon is removed. So, killing Disaster
  Fire would take out Vapor Blast from the set. If all Disasters were murdered
  then only Unlucky Shot('s animation) will be used, and not surprisingly, it
  sucks. Definitely Lucky Card for this behemoth, and maybe Finest Arts him
  into the ground if he's putting up a fight.

  Beatrice isn't that hard, mostly because her damage output is horrible and
  Finest Arts can one-shot her, but Nightmare at least shows she's thinking
  outside of the box -- it IS one of the lesser-used abnormalities after all.
  Extension + Hyper/Permanence is about the only strategy y'need.

 Afterwards, the castle will start collapsing and there'll be a 0:10 timer to
 escape in. Obviously hoofing it back to the entrance won't do anything, so
 use the Exodus Orb to avoid death by disintegration.

 Once entered, the boss battle starts after some long scenes... The upcoming
 boss is a 10-form menace so be prepared to go all out! [The following strats
 are used by a Lv50ish party, which I think is a good average for this point.]

 NOTE: Battles are consecutive, meaning HP/FP values, deaths, statuses and
       bullet counts are retained. Basically it easily sets up Finest Arts!

  Same fight as before, except she's got less health. Nightmare's still a bit
  of an annoyance (and used more often), her damage output flatlines. Yawn.

  This li'l baby isn't that tough, but uses Count Counter at the end of its
  turn to reciprocate attacks (not damage like Rule of Vengeance). Basically,
  if someone attacks it, they're attacked in kind; same goes for someone who
  used arcana against it. At best it becomes an attack-all skill for 500-600
  damage, at worst a single-target washout. When about half its life is gone
  it splits in two, but killing it before then (such as with Finest Arts) will
  prevent that outcome. It'll keep splitting in two unless it's killed, mind
  you.

  Since the boss is really a defensive critter, it will pay in the long run to
  erect a bunch of positive statuses on everyone and hit 'em with Permanence.
  Status Lock, Protect/Shield, Hyper and Valiant in particular are good ideas.

  This should be a ridiculously easy battle, since the boss can inflict zero
  damage and everyone was immune to paralysis forever ago (I hope). Every six
  turns it resets battle, which is why y'should be glad any good statuses were
  put on in the first one! Fragile, Extension + Hyper, and lay into each turn
  -- or Finest Arts. [Yes, I'm going to say that a lot!]

  The boss is immune to physical attacks and has high magic defense so it'll
  shrug off any arcana. The solution? At the end of each turn there's a "core
  is exposed" notification, meaning it can take physical damage. Like all its
  forerunners, this means there's only one way to proceed: Replay someone and
  have them attack at turn's end. The boss' status recovers so Accelerator is
  not an option, unfortunately.

  The streak of fun easy battles ends now. The bosses will heal themselves to
  full if damaged physically, so arcana is the only way to proceed. Analyze
  'em to see what their weakness is and snipe at it. Note that they'll change
  their method of attack and weakness at that point, but it's nothing that
  important. Whoever has the Weakness skill can inflict major damage here,
  but there's also other ways to beat on these brats, such as by Extensioning
  Exploder (yes, it works!) or using Copy Ability to learn their entire
  repertoire, turning one person into an elemental jack-of-all-trades. Just
  keep HP and Extension + Protect up. Gatlings and Finest Arts works too, but
  it probably doesn't need to come to that.

  These two lizards work together to inflict lots of damage, with Filgaia A
  using Hyper and Stampede while Filgaia B casts Fragile and uses Critical
  Heal every other turn. The best plan's to inflict a bucket of damage
  first round to Filgaia B, since it always casts Fragile first thing, then
  picking up the slack on the 2nd round before it can heal up. Without its
  mate, Filgaia A is pretty lame. Note that Eraser-ing Hyper makes the boss
  recast, so at least there's little danger of incurring damage. [Valiant'd
  Gatling or Finest Arts can be used if all else fails. Both bosses have
  automatic reflect.]

  The boss is weak to all elements initially, but when hit with one, damage is
  mitigated (first hit is normal, 2nd is halved, 3rd is resistant) Feeble Mind,
  Analyze, and have Virginia/Gallows snipe at the boss with elements/gems,
  while the others use physical attacks. Arcana Disaster is the boss' hardest
  move, but with Extension + Reflect, it's all sent back at him, doing much of
  the work for the player. [Only one person needs Reflect for Arcana Disaster
  to be sent back at the boss, avoiding any ally damage at all! Ally spells
  also pierce Reflect so don't be apprehensive about casting it.]

  Basically a combination of the 2nd and 6th Filgaia forms: it uses Reset to
  avoid death and has the "property" where, although it starts out weak to
  all elements, it quickly adapts to mitigate damage. With Gallows/Virginia
  working on the arcana angle, Jet/Clive can do Valiant/Hyper-boosted Gatlings
  or Finest Arts. Just work together! Haha... [A spellcaster with Weakness can
  really prey on these gimmick bosses, mind you.]

  Most annoying battle yet. Nega Filgaia can only be attacked when its spirit
  servants are dead. What's the problem then? The "left" Servant is immune to
  physical attacks and the "right" one to arcana, not to mention they take
  damage for the boss and will be revived first opportunity (if both are dead
  only; not if only one is). The servants themselves are crappy but because
  of the boss' revival plan, a careful approach should be taken. For instance,
  get the gist of the RFX and see if there's an opening to use Finest Arts --
  if not, use Decelerate/Quicken and perhaps it will level things out a bit.
  [If all else fails, a quicker person can do a Valiant-boosted Gatling.] Ars
  Magna is the boss' only attack, and although Dark Wards help, Extensioning
  Protect is a sufficient stopgap. [If a turn starts and there's no servants,
  feel free to change the turn order in order to get off an opportune attack.]

  This is basically a repeat of the previous battle, except Nega Filgaia uses
  a light-based attack (switch wards, erect Protect/Distortion accordingly)
  and the cohorts are no longer immune to certain attacks...they just have a
  lot better defense. Of course, Valiant ignores DEF and deals fixed bonus
  damage so that'll help a lot here. [The boss also has auto-reflect.] So,
  the gameplan is to kill the messengers with arcana, then blitzkreig the main
  target in a way described in the previous battle (changing turn order will
  work great). Note that Sacrifice doesn't activate for items or arcana that
  target the boss, so having a Virginia/Gallows target Filgaia and Replaying
  it is a good way to avoid the stupid messenger fiasco (if you're struggling).

  The end battle is kinda fun. Nega Filgaia is weak to all elements initially
  and has no companions. When a "formation" ability is used, it summons a
  cohort tentacle, which gives a bonus (RFX, DEF, etc.) as well as making it
  loses its weakness to whatever element the tentacle's skill uses. So, when
  it summons Oricoflagamus, it loses its water/dark weakness. Killing a cohort
  will reset weaknesses and they're not resummoned --UNLESS-- someone casts an
  elemental skill on the boss, at which time it counters by regrowing a root
  that deals with that element, and without superseding its current turn! Do
  not do that if you've killed 'em already! Seyfurt Microcosm, Filgaia's only
  inherent attack, is spammed from Turn 5 on, but with Extensioned Protect on
  everyone, it should only do a peasly 500-700 at best. Once the free Ex File
  Key is stolen, finish the boss of in you're preferred method -- Finest Arts
 is quick and pain...ful. :D

MIGRANT SEALS & BOOSTER KITS                                             [MGRN]
_______________________________________________________________________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 NOTE: For exact locations, I suggest using the walkthrough maps for help.

 Migrant Seals assist battles in another way: avoidance. When a battle on the
 world map or field is bypassed, and one's migrant level is low, the encounter
 gauge will drain faster. Basically, seals improve the migrant level and let
 one avoid crappier monsters, which in turn saves time and resources. There're
 nineteen to find in the game, making the maximum migrant level 20. [Seals'll
 be listed in the order they're first available.]

 NOTE: Finding world map migrant seals requires the Item Scope from Gunner's
       Heaven (this is mandatory) but #09 also requires one to get a Teleport
       Orb item from Millennium Puzzle #14, then take a train from Southfarm
       to East Highlands. In the process, the team wackily winds up in the
       defunct Sunset Peak station, which is the only way to get to the area
       with the seal.

 Booster Kits are items that increase the encounter gauge, which lets one
 skip more battles more often -- it works great if one's migrant level is
 low, but even better when it's high. There are only four in the game, but
 that's really all y'need (each +10 Encounter gauge; 50 is max, therefore).

GEAR OVERVIEW                                                            [GRVR]
_______________________________________________________________________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Gears are an important part of gameplay, as they provide extra functions that
 aren't initially available to mediums. By attaching a gear to said medium, a
 personal skill (PS) is attached to that medium and the skill can be used at
 leisure; or, disabled in lieu of another skill. REMOVING A GEAR FROM A MEDIUM
 PERMANENTLY DESTROYS IT, so it always pays to think ahead -- some gears, like
 the Comet Mark or Dist Dims, are entirely unique!

SKILL OVERVIEW
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 LV/PS: This column talks about the level and # of PS points needed to fill 1
        bar of the skilll. For instance, Amnesia Ward has 4 levels and 
        requires 1 PS point to fill one bar.

 Putting points into a skill has various effects:

 - ELEMENTAL: Mitigation of damage (always active; can null elements too)
 - STATUS   : Likelihood to guard (can totally block statuses)
 - SUPPORT  : Likelihood to trigger (generally; some skills always active)

 When a skill activates, the equipper gets an additional x0.1 to their EXP of
 that battle. In battles where the enemy uses a lot of status-inflicting
 skills, it's easy to rack up extra experience in this way. Some skills can
 even trigger each other -- example: defending triggers Life Charge and Force
 Charge, the latter of which triggers Regeneration (instant x0.3)!

 Also, some skills are inborn in mediums but can't be replicated on any gear.
 They are: EXP Boost, Focus, Force Charge, Inoculation, and Life Charge.

 The Finest Arts skill is pretty vague about what it does, perhaps 'cause it's
 way awesome. Basically, it makes the last hit in a 100-FP bare-handed Gatling
 do tens of thousands of damage (at best, LV*1000). The player MUST have 100
 FP, start the Gatling with no bullets, and have at least one point invested
 in Finest Arts for it to work. [Finest Arts cannot trigger in Replay-enhanced
 Gatlings.]

SUPPORT GEARS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 These gears specifically help with the active side of battle. [If a gear has
 no way to get infinite amounts, it means there's a finite amount -- check the
 walkthrough for gear locations.] One asterisk means the monster only has an
 item as a steal, two only as an item for a drop, and three means both.

 NOTE: In some cases of common gears (like the Lion Shield), there's a lot of
       places to get 'em. In this case, the easier enemies are listed.

 NOTE: Basically none of these can be rebought on the Black Market, so don't
       bother trying to sell 'em!

STATUS/ELEMENTAL GEARS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 These gears deal with status and elemental damage prevention. Most can be
 sold to Travis on the Black Market, who in turn will start selling them...
 albeit at ridiculously inflated prices. [The Gold License halves all prices
 at his shop.] For some reason, the Holy Ankh, once sold to Travis, can't be
 bought there -- so just don't sell one.

MEDIUM/ARCANA OVERVIEW                                                   [MARC]
_______________________________________________________________________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Mediums are indispensible: once invoked, a character gets its inborn arcana,
 personal skills, a summon that affects all enemies, and can equip more gears
 (5 slots/per) to get more abilities. Truly amazing. There are twelve (12)
 mediums overall, which makes three for each character (that's also the max).

 NOTE: Killing an enemy with an elemental ability/summon creates a gem. For
       instance, the water-elemental Pressure arcana creates a Water Gem. The
       gems can be used to damage enemies when arcana's not available, or can
       be sold for 100g/per -- a good way to earn cash in the early going.

 NOTE: All damage is FP-based (does more at 100FP than at 001FP) but most of
       the effects are too. For instance, Justine Attack will always kill the
       susceptible enemies at 100FP, System Chronos gives max number of free
       turns at 100FP, etc.

 Arcana is the WA3 version of "magic," and can only be used by invoking a
 medium onto a character. In battle, to use arcana, one must boost FP to 'x'
 amount. Unlike other games' magic abilities, arcana does not consume FP. For
 instance, Arc Impulse costs 32 FP -- but as long as that amount's retained,
 it can be used indefinitely.

 NOTE: Unless otherwise stated, all arcana is single-target.

NOTES
ŻŻŻŻŻ
 • Analyze ------ Boss HP information is not revealed
 • Attachment --- Only elemental mediums can be used to imbue elements
 • Copy Ability - Copied skills can be deleted; normal arcana will return
 • Curse -------- Some statuses an foe is 100% immune to (they're unaffected)
 • Dark Luceid -- Does more the more resistances the target has
 • Distortion --- Barrier's strength is one-fifth of max HP
 • Eraser ------- Unreflectable arcana; can remove Permanence also
 • Exploder ----- Target dies next turn; its allies incur (half its HP) damage
 • Permanence --- Essentially makes any positive status last indefinitely
 • Replay ------- Action only replays if sufficient FP is available!
 • Reset -------- Expendible items return to their former amount, by the way
 • Status Lock -- Prevents "instant death" Fallen, not "has zero HP" Fallen
 • Synchronizer - Flipside is true also: curing a status cures the enemy also
 • Weaken ------- Weakness selection based off user's elemental mediums

 The search function is used to locate dungeons and towns, but it's capable
 of spotting items (and less importantly, signs). The coordinates given are
 to be used with the World Screen item, bought from Roykman for 5000 Gella
 (can only be done once). This allows one to see the world map by pressing
 selection button, in addition to any located towns, dungeons, millennium
 puzzles, and telepath towers -- although their individual coordinates aren't
 given, just their location.

DUNGEON LOCATIONS

 Dungeons are specialized areas that contain treasure, monsters, and bosses.
 Yeah, it's pretty obvious what they are, no? Dungeons CANNOT be warped to by
 the Teleport Orb, but once found, their locations can be pointed out on the
 World Screen item (buy from Roykman). Some dungeons (Sand Canal, Gemstone
 Cave, Nidhogg Pass) have more than one entry/exit point.

 Millennium Puzzles are a sidequest started after completing Fortune Gear.
 Talk to Simon at Dune Canyon and inquire about his puzzle-making hobby, and
 afterwards, the "dungeons" can be found on the map. There's twenty in all
 strewn 'round the world. [NOTE: #3 may not appear on the map since it's in
 the far NW corner and small-screen tvs will probably cut it off.]

 All characters use ARMs, special type of guns, that can be worked on by an
 armsmith to increase power. Five categories can be raised: SHT, HIT, BLT,
 WGT, CRT. The maximum amount of work possible is fifteen (15) upgrades; if a
 player wants a do-over, s/he'll have to initialize the setup. This defaults
 the stats to their original form but any upgrade costs aren't regained, so it
 pays to have a plan!

 Each ARM's SHT/HIT have different amounts, but BLT/WGT/CRT upgrades always
 have uniformity: +1 BLT, +.01 CRT, and -1 WGT. SHT/HIT upgrades are set, so
 since Virginia gets 7 SHT/per each, if one wanted to know what her maxed out
 SHT would be, it's just (8 + (7*15)). Simple math.

 Virginia Wpns: Rapier Ez & Bantorain 93R
 Initial stats: 08 SHT, 16 HIT, 5 BLT, -0 WGT, x0.2 CRT
 Upgrade Amnts: 7-8 SHT, 16 HIT

 Clive Weapon : Gungnir HAG35
 Initial stats: 19 SHT, 18 HIT, 2 BLT, -0 WGT, x0.4 CRT

 I dunno how it is in overseas versions, but in the NTSC game characters have
 uniform upgrade costs.

 No, this isn't Mulder and Scully's business -- EX Files pertain to special

 So, once the keys are obtained and after the final boss and credits are done,
 they can be traded in for special features in the New Game Plus. Feature are:

 | 08 | View All Openings | View all 8 of the game's openings                |
 |____|___________________|__________________________________________________|

 So what does a New Game Plus offer? It allows one to start from the game's
 beginning, but retains one's levels and gella, plus any Sheriff Stars the
 team had. NOTE: Only unequipped Stars or currently equipped & activated Stars
 (Lv100 necessar to activate Gun Hero PS) are able to be carried over.

 So, this feature's pretty useless without getting at least two key, which're
 pretty easy to obtain -- there's quite a few that aren't hellish, like the
 Millennium Puzzles one.

 Ever wonder why there's only one salesman in the entire world? Well, there's
 not. A chest in Caging Tower contains the Black Pass item, which allows one
 to enter the Black Market in Little Twister. Hidden in a shed next to the
 Armsmith and a vacant house, the player has to walk around the fence, go
 downstairs, and manually select the pass in front of the door to gain access.

 Travis' inventory is pretty paltry to start, but can be improved in a couple
 ways (the 'unlock method'). Sure the prices are highway robbery, but if a
 player has money to spend and doesn't want to fight monsters for hours trying
 to get drops repeatedly, this is the most expedient way to get rings/status
 wards.

 NOTE: The Holy Ankh cannot be bought from the shop, perhaps due to a glitch.
       Don't bother selling any to him 'cause he won't stock 'em.

 Is there any reason to find all treasures? If you're interested in getting a
 bunch of free things, sure, but there's also a harder sidequest tied into all
 this: fighting the Black Box in an optional quest. This secret boss can only
 be fought if all (320) chests in the game are opened, and it's quite a task,
 not only because finding all of 'em are hard enough, but because keeping track
 of them is an even bigger task! Basically, this isn't the type of thing y'just
 walk into blind.

 A ---> Total number of chests in dungeon
 B ---> Number of the "A" column chests requiring special methods
 TTL -> Running total of chests overall (out of 320)

 [c] -> Changecrest
 [d] -> Duplicator
 [g] -> Galecrest
 [m] -> Mighty Gloves
 [r] -> Radical Sneakers
 [s] -> Steady Doll
 [!] -> must be last chest
 [*] -> Assortment Needed

 NOTE: Opening chests only counts if the contents are taken. If an item can't
       fit into the inventory, the chest shuts (after screen refresh) and the
       items can be obtained later. This is very bad for strict checklisters,
       so be aware!

 When all (319) normal chests have been opened, try to open the Black Box in
 Fortune Gear to initiate battle!

  Hard? Not really. Dark Wards eliminate its most frequent methods of attack,
  leaving plenty of time to set up Finest Arts. The boss is weak to light-elem
  attacks, so in lieu of Finest Arts, the "person with Weakness PS attacks its
  weakspot while someone Replays it" strategy suffices as well. Overall, a
  piddly end to a very long quest.

 Here's a general description of character's growth. Chances are this won't be
 totally complete (I abhor power-leveling) but it should provide a glimpse of
 how each protagonist is modeled. These are naturally-grown levels, so nothing
 that could affect them is used (such as LVL Apples).

TELEPATH TOWERS                                                          [TLPT]

 Although most people dismiss him as a kook, Laxisland's own Ventura kicks off
 a rather fun sidequest involving aliens watching Filgaia. Unfortunately the
 sidequest is a little glitchy and can PERMANENTLY MISSED if it isn't started
 before finishing Deus Ex Machina, the last dungeon in Chapter 3. Kickstarting
 the sidequest is simple in origin though: talk to Ventura and use the ask
 system until he talks about "forces of chaos" roaming the land. Then, use one
 of the coordinates below to discover a tower. Once any tower is found, the
 search-and-destroy mission is automatically begun.

 NOTE: A common mistake is thinking the "Mu and Lemuria Monthly" book in Ark
       of Destiny's library must be read to start the quest. This isn't so.

PREPARATIONS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 - Everyone with an Amulet (Status Guard)
 - Finest Arts on someone (for expedience)
 - 40-50 Full Carrots (breed at Secret Garden)
 - Gallows has Justine & Zephyr mediums (Extension + Status Lock/Permanence)

 Note that when fighting, a good way to quickly deal with the enemies is to
 change the turn orders around. For instance, if a slowpoke like Clive has
 Finest Arts, change the turn order so he attacks first regardless of RFX,
 then have someone else use a Full Carrot so he can Gatling immediately the
 next round. [Manual order changes have to be done each turn, mind you.]

 Also, in place of Finest Arts, Virginia can use a 5BLT/10WGT Arms setup to
 get in ten hits, which when boosted by Valiant, can do 17000+ without much
 trouble. Extension + Distortion helps keep her out of Hyperion Blaster's
 way, too.

FIGHTING TELEPATH TOWERS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Telepath Towers specialize in using status-inflicting skills, many of which
 have already been seen throughout the game. Low-numbered towers have few of
 the skills, but higher-numbered ones carry a wide arsenal. The basic strategy
 is to Extension + Status Lock/Permanence, which takes care of everything but
 Fallen (instant death), which everyone should already have guards for.

 The list of soon-to-be-witnessed skills and what they inflict. All towers'll
 have Hyperion Blaster so that won't be mentioned in the chart below.

 • Evil Glance ------> Bronze
 • Harmful Wave -----> Poison
 • Hyperion Blaster -> Non-elem Damage
 • Hypnotizer -------> Sleep
 • Malice Grace -----> Glass
 • Melancholic Ray --> Misery
 • Noxious Stream ---> Disease
 • Numb Light -------> Amnesia
 • Psychedelicor ----> Confusion
 • Radious Breath ---> Fallen
 • Tranquilizer -----> Paralysis

 Finally, an overview to save space. All battles have three Telepath Towers to
 defeat, and there's not much to do besides the aforementioned strategy. If
 y'want an easier time locating them, however, win the Sonar Kit from Gunner's
 Heaven (Journeyman's League prize) which makes any unfound items, dungeons,
 and telepath towers show up on the map. [Note that EXP values listed are on
 a per-each basis; multiply by three to find total.] Don't forget about using
 Finest Arts!

 Some TTs (11,14) are hidden under rocks at the given location, and can only
 be found by blowing 'em up with Lombardia's missiles. TT15 is located in the
 Sunset Peak area, so that tiny sidequest (get Teleport Orb, take train from
 Southfarm to East Highlands) must be done first.

 To reach Telepath Tower #0, obtain the Teleport Orb from Millennium Puzzle
 #16 -- this is mandatory. After, teleport to Boot Hill. Remember how there's
 a tiny closed-off part of the sand sea the sandcraft normally can't reach
 right by town? Since all vehicles warp to the player's nearest location, the
 Sandcraft appears in that very sea! The opposite beach has the tower. Unlike
 others that appear in threes, Teleport Tower #0 is just one target.

REPERCUSSIONS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 - 03 Towers killed: Strange cry from tower
 - 05 Towers killed: UFO sighting (can now fight in sandcraft?)
 - 06 Towers killed: Forced Creeping Chaos battle (can be found on world map)
 - 10 Towers killed: Silent Chaos enemies can now be found on world map
 - 15 Towers killed: Telepath Tower #00 can now be found.
 - 16 Towers killed: UFO (mothership) sighting #2

 Creeping Chaoses are notible for their Arc-en-Ceil ability, which inflicts
 a crapload of statuses on everyone -- Extension + Status Lock makes that go
 away, however. [Finest Arts is a good idea, but a 100-FP Justine Attack will
 inflict Fallen 100% of the time, and is a good alternative.] Finding Silent
 Chaoses is usually easy since they appear in the Sunset Peak area and have a
 large migrant cost.

AFTER ALL TOWERS ARE DEAD...
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The final step is fighting the mothership, which is done by defeating twenty
 (20) normal UFOs. However, before being able to fight any in the air, the
 team must defeat five (5) with the sandcraft. They only have about 40K health
 and are ridiculously easy to defeat no matter where they're encountered. The
 26th UFO encountered will be...

  The mothership only has one attack and can't reduce ATT/MAG damage, so this
  battle's no so much hard as it is lengthy. The usual strategy of having the
  strongest ally (Clive, usually) use Draconic Gun Blaster after everyone else
  uses the other skills (Mighty Might especially) still stands. Damage in this
  way should do 150-200K per hit or thereabouts. Unfortunately for the player,
  damage against the UFO seems to fluctuate wildly -- Missile Might can do 30K
  or 250 damage...it's weird. Attacking in large batches is really the best
  way to proceed because of this. [Remember that Mighty Might's side effect is
  leaving Lombardia incapacitated for a few turns down the line, and as the
  battle goes on, Mothership seems to dish out more damage while taking in
  less -- watch out!]

 With the mothership in ruins, the Ex File Key is obtained! Creeping Chaoses
 quit being found all over the map, but can still be fought in Sunset Peak's
 region if y'wanna farm levels/gella -- although these ones are immune to the
 Justine Attack strategy.

 Although it's way out in the middle of nowhere, Gunner's Heaven is mandatory,
 at least for a fraction of the game. However, the meat of what it offers is
 some great arena prizes plus two optional bosses. Those seeking a challenge
 have come to the right place!

PREPARATIONS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 - Lots of Full Carrots
 - Lucky/Gella Cards (naturally...)
 - Finest Arts (taught by Violator)
 - Dried Flower gear on Virginia (Green Thumb doubles berry healing)
 - Gallows has Justine/Zephyr mediums (for Extension + Hyper/Permanence)
 - Pocketbook gear (Gella Boost may double gella; stacks with Gella Cards!)

 Do you remember the "turn order" trick for Finest Arts? Since Clive should
 have the skill and he's the slowest, manually change the turn order to make
 him first, then have those following him give him a Full Carrot -- allowing
 him to Gatling immediately the next turn! Dan Dairam can also buy some time
 without the enemy bothering anyone. [NOTE: Finest Arts does NOT activate in
 a Replay-based Gatling, so don't bother trying to do two in one turn (aww).]

 Novice League is, of course, the easiest of the three but for a team that
 still hasn't learned the ins and outs of battle, it can still be hard. Make
 sure to have Disease/Poison wards for Balor and kill the Shambling Mounds
 with Moor Gault (or similar) to avoid wasting turns or healing Bronze.

 |___|_____________________|_______|__________|______________________________|

 Here's a rough overview of the fights:

 • MERCURIUS -------: Have some characters (not Virginia) summon first turn to
                      get rid of them. Their lightning attacks are boosted by
                      Thunder Zone, and Superconductive Gimlet is damaging!

 • GASHER SKELETONS : Have someone (Gallows is good) summon Flash Hit to get
                      rid of them. Alternatively, Replay-ing Requiem can cut
                      'em down to size.

 • BAMULVRIS -------: By now Clive should be able to get a Finest Arts off, 
                      which is probably quicker than exploiting its weaknesses
                      (although Weakness PS can help). If Finest Arts isn't
                      already setup, that's okay -- waste a few turns here to
                      quickly deal with the next battle. 

 • AUDHULMA/SLEIPNIR: Have Clive Finest Arts Sleipnir while Virginia/Gallows
                      pray on Audhumla's dual weakness. Should only take a
                      few turns on this end. [Use manual turn order!]

 • EGREGORIS -------: These morons can inflict Fallen, Paralysis, Confusion,
                      Sleep, and Glass/Bronze as well. Mystic a Full Carrot
                      and have everyone do 100-FP summons to kill these guys!
                      [Use Cosmic Cog to buy time if need be.]

 The Sonar Kit prize lets one see unfound items, dungeons, Millennium Puzzles,
 and telepath towers on the world map, making it ridiculously awesome for the
 search parties. [Unfound items/signs are in gold, unfound dungeons in green.]

 Most enemies have death-inflicting moves, so y'gotta come prepared. Getting
 Finest Arts out early doesn't really matter here, since the initial enemies
 should be taken out with mass-hitting attacks. Just make sure to have it
 out by Round #3 & #4 to save some time for #5, which uses a little setup.

 • DAREDEVILS - Whoever has the Weakness PS should summon Terra Roar; or,
                alternatively, Virginia (assuming she has Weakness) can Mystic
                Earth Gems while someone casts Replay on her.

 • SPHERES ---- Virginia + Summon + Lust Jaw = Win. It probably takes two
                summons of it, so make sure to throw Virginia a Full Carrot
                after the first summon so she can kill the sextet on the
                rebound. [If you're apprehensive about Virginia without the
                FP to heal, this round's not that dangerous as long as the
                team has Light Ward.]

 • DEATH MASK - Finest Arts 'im -- Clive should've emptied his magazine by
                now. Virginia should give herself a Full Carrot first, though.
                The boss can inflict instant death, so this isn't a round to
                hang around in...well, if you're susceptible.

 • DANTALION -- Dantalion alternates between closed form (only susceptible to
                magic damage) and open (only susceptible to physical damage).
                This is good, because the first turn against it can be used to
                get Clive into Finest Arts shape. Do that on the subsequent
                turn.

 • DOLL DRONE - He's immune to normal attacks (Lock On still works), so the
                expedient way to attack it is forcing a weakness on it while
                Virginia (who gets Replay'd) uses an elemental gem on it. Once
                the weakness is established, then Virginia can do Replay'd
                summons to exploid it. It should only take two summons to kill
                it, by the way.

 The Relic Coin is basically an infinite-use Gimel Coin, which basically means
 it's impossible to get a game over! [Winning Master League also makes Gimel
 Coins available for purchase on Black Market.]

OPTIONAL BOSS: Emperor Marduk
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This boss can be fought by finishing all fights in Master League, regardless
 of breaking the turn limit. Talk to Begucci upstairs and agree to the
 proposal, at which point...

  Angolmois' brother? Oh my. The boss doesn't know Eraser, so Gallows should
  get to work stat-buffing (Protect > Hyper > Permanence), while Virginia and
  Jet setup Clive for Finest Arts-ing. With Protect on everyone, Satellite
  Extinction -- at best -- does 1100+ to the weak-MGR players. That should be
  more than tolerable at this point in the game, although he'll use it more
  than Angolmois' used Seventh Moon. Restoration heals about 3000 HP -- paltry
  sum! The boss is also quite fast, though, interjecting its turns (or likely
  to) between Virginia and the 2nd-fastest. Make sure to Gella/Lucky Card the
  buffoon when possible, too.

 The Dist Dims it drops gives the MTC Recovery ability, which lets one refill
 MTC by walking around. Not that useful in the outside world where healing's
 abound, but in The Abyss, where Lucky Shot'ing enemies to get their rarities
 is great, the ability truly shines. THERE IS ONLY ONE IN THE GAME so don't
 do something stupid like selling it for the price of a hamburger. :p

OPTIONAL BOSS: Bad News
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Once Marduk's pushing up daisies, chat with Ortega and he'll introduce the
 team to Bad News, the biggest, meanest, and toughest fighter in the arena.
 [I was around Lv75 here, having killed basically all other optional bosses
 except Ragu. I wouldn't say this is necessary but extra HP always helps...]

  Certainly more of a challenge than Marduk, although he still doesn't know
  Eraser so it just forces the player to proceed more cautiously. The battle
  would become unduly hard if Virginia's not first to act, so make sure she's
  quickest (w/ Gale Claw she had 670+ and that sufficed). Extension + Protect
  is a savior here, so make sure to Permanence it -- all Bad News' attacks're
  of that sort. Although Finest Arts is still king of this battle, it's pretty
  easy to get that messed up if people are constantly being hit with confusion
  and amnesia -- come in prepared (or Status Lock applicable people). Weaker
  characters shouldn't attack too often -- or at all -- since the boss strikes
  back with Counter Tomahawk. It seems to get more powerful as BN's health
  decreases, so Virginia'll have to be attentive toward the end. The best
  attack in BN's arsenal is Power Mountain Load which can do 1500+ without 
  Shield pulling its weight (I suggest Extensioning Distortion as well, just
  to be on the safe side).

  NOTE: A funnier, cheaper alternate strategy is coming into battle with a
        poison-afflicted ally. That person then uses "Synchronizer" on Bad
        News, which inflicts him with Poison as well! He'll be dead in five
        turns! Good way to save Full Carrots and stuff.

 Millennium Puzzles (MPs) are a special "dungeon". To unlock the sidequest,
 finish Fortune Gear and talk to Simon, inquiring about his hobbies. When he
 talks about a benefactor and whatnot, this allows one to find MPs on the
 overworld. Here's a list of their coordinates, although some are in rather
 annoying places and the best way to find them is with Lombardia and the Sonar
 Kit (from Gunner's Heaven Journeyman League).

 To solve a puzzle, eliminate all blocks presented by matching (coming in
 contact with one another) -- pushing 'em off the edge doesn't count. Blocks
 come in red, silver, orange, and puke green. These will be abbreviated R, S,
 O, and G, respectively. Blank spaces are denoted with a hyphen (-), any
 obstacle/wall is denoted with a hash mark (#), and a stack of blocks will be
 denoted by an asterisk (*). Finally, a bracketed number will denote how many
 blocks are removed when an action is done -- ex: [3].

 My maps' axises are both "numbered" by letters. The reason? It helps keep the
 tables small, since it doesn't have to deal with double-digit or -letter
 stuff, which can inflate the size. [Example direction: FD > EE. This means
 to go DOWN to F then OVER to D; not vice versa.]

 NOTE: North is always "up" on the map.

 Hint -: Even if you eliminate three of the four blocks, there will still be
         one left. Obviously, this will not count.

 The basic strategy is to clear out the middle, set aside one block of each
 color, then topple the large stacks. Each stack that's destroyed should have
 one block left of that color to defeat another stack, and so forth.

 Hint -: If you run out of space behind you, you cannot pull the block any
         further. Try moving the block differently.

 The gist of this puzzle is that there's little room to maneuver on the area's
 fringe, so pulling out blocks out of the clogged center crossways creates a
 bit more room. Pay attention to odd-numbered colors.

 This is a three-star puzzle? I always found it quite difficult, maybe 'cause

 isolated on cliffs.

 Like Berlitz' used to say, shortcuts ain't that helpful all the time. In

 really pays to think ahead and take it slow. Luckily there's a west-side ramp
 that lets a player return to the top of the overlapping 4x4 pads.

 Hint -: Pushing...pulling... Life is full of repetative chores. And that is
         the secret to success.

 Note that the Sunset Peak "sidequest" must be done before this can be found.
 Luckily the defunct station is recorded in the Teleport Orb.

THE ABYSS                                                                [THBY]

ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Although the first ten floors are mandatory, there's a whole lot more to the
 Abyss. Its one hundred (100) floors contain many rare enemies carrying gears
 that can only be obtained from them, plus Ragu O Ragla, the final boss that
 has to be defeated at the bottom AND at the top as well. This isn't just some
 undertaking you do in five minutes -- time must be set aside and massive
 preparation beforehand (that is, unless you enjoy getting 'x' floors deep and
 failing).

 It's advised that one waits until later in the game to tackle this place, for
 obvious reasons: it's hard, better levels and gears available, better chance
 of not being eaten by a half-tiger, half-alligator creature... And so on.

HOW THE ABYSS WORKS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Facts about the dungeon.

 • Abyss is 100 floors deep
 • To proceed down 1 level, collect all ENC crystals strewn throughout the map
 • The 10th, 30th, 60th, and 100th floors have bosses guarding the warps
 • The 10th, 30th, 60th, and 100th floors have warps to surface or next tier
 • The Exodus Orb can be used to escape the dungeon as well
 • A player who exits the dungeon prematurely has to do it ALL over!
 • Saving is disabled inside
 • Tracker (potentially to see what floor you'd be on) does not work inside

PREPARATIONS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 • Migrant LV20
 • 3 of 4 Booster kits found
 • 99 Potion/Heal Berries (healing)
 • 99 Gimel Coins (or a Relic Coin)
 • Violator (for Finest Arts skill)
 • Exodus Orb (to warp from dungeon at leisure)
 • Dried Flower on Virginia (boosts Mystic's potency)
 • Everyone has Eagle eye skill (prevents Ambush/Danger situations)
 • Dist Dims on someone (MTC Recovery PS -- helps for getting rare items)
 • Status wards on everyone (Full Libra + individual wards on the others)
 • Full elemental wards on everyone (Prism Stick + others get individuals)

 Since Virginia's perhaps the most important person upkeep-wise, she should
 get Full Libra and Prism Crown (remember it's possible to get more of these
 inside).

ENEMIES WORTH WATCHING OUT FOR
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 As mentioned, many foes within carry items that can't be found anywhere else;
 or, are the only ways to get more of items found scarcely throughout normal
 gameplay. Naturally they drop with astounding infrequency, so the best way
 to get drops is to kill the enemy with Lucky Shot, which increases the chance
 of the enemy dropping its goods. [This is the main reason to have Dist Dims
 on someone.]

 • A Bao A Qu ----- steal Power Boost
 • Agowogdent ----- drops Prism Crown
 • Alligatiger ---- drops Gunstar Sign
 • Black Knight --- drop/steal Secret Note
 • Calupdis ------- defeat it before it flees with your cash to get 10% return!
 • Coatl ---------- drop/steal Elder Record
 • Dakleit -------- drops Elder Record
 • Demiurgos ------ drops Prism Stick
 • Dendrobium ----- drops Dried Flower
 • Flauros -------- drops Nine Lives
 • Forbidden ------ drop/steal Robber's Ego
 • Great Maximum -- drop/steal Force Unit
 • Great Pumpkin -- drop/steal Evergreen
 • Grendel -------- drops Sunset Red
 • Hyperion ------- drop/steal Crisis Arm
 • Last Batallion - drop/steal AP Ammo
 • Leonard -------- drop/steal Elder Record
 • Master Therion - drops Talisman
 • Mu ------------- drop/steal Pulbo Calbo
 • Necronomicon --- drop/steal Necronomicon
 • Ragu O Ragla --- drops Sheriff Star (2nd time - 100%)
 • Vodianoi ------- drop/steal Violator
 • Voidra --------- can eject everyone from dungeon (kill fast or avoid it!!!)
 • Zohak ---------- drops Full Libra

 Since saving's disabled inside the Abyss (yes, a truly cheap shot) it's not a
 bad idea to leave after getting some of the rarer gears. Yes, doing everything
 over again is a bitter pill to swallow but it could be worse.

BOSSES
ŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 With Weather Vanes and full Migrant Level, the Abyss becomes a lot more
 tolerable. There's no danger of allies being detained in ambush situations,
 and the enemies that can't be skipped easily take off only a few ENC points,
 which are then regained through collecting ENC crystals in the maps. Ahh, the
 good life! This makes fighting the bosses the main parts of doing this place.

  Ephrem Zein is the 10th floor boss. Its strategy consists of using "Prepare
  Intercepts" and after awhile using "Intercepts cancelled." It takes no
  offensive measures except Luminous Impact, which is only used as a counter
  when damaged while Prepare Intercepts is active. To defeat it, gauge its
  actions to see when PI's duration ends. It's quite possible Clive can attack
  it each turn like normal, but the alternatives are (1) using Replay on an
  attacker to make them attack at the end of the turn as well, when intercepts
  are already cancelled (2) attacking like normal, provided Light Wards are
  present. [The boss has auto-reflect.] Don't forget to Lucky/Gella Card!

 Of course, someone reading this toward the end of the game has already done
 that boss, so let's skip that. Twenty floors later, it's...

  Basically a repeat of the 10th-floor boss, except there's three of 'em and
  they use Phantom Hazard as a counterattack. Finest Arts can take care of
  all these doofuses, and without worrying about any repercussions (which're
  also moot since the player was advised to have Dark Ward coming in here).
  A single 100-FP Flash Hit with Weakness PS maxed out might be able to kill
  them all en masse, although it's rather unnecessary.

 Thirty floors later, it's...

  The last in a series of Zein bosses, it has all the trappings of a normal
  fight with these guys. Paradigm Pollution is the new counterattack and isn't
  subject to the wards before, so it's at least a little more dangerous on
  that end. On Turn 4, any living boss will merge into one entity and become a
  lot more powerful (although it's strategy or HP value doesn't change). The
  person(s) with Finest Arts will probably be too fast to avoid the Paradigm
  attack, so if they have any RFX-boosting mediums, maybe unequip 'em for a
  bit.

 If you're wondering what the Bone does, when used in conjunction with Mystic,
 it puts all of Virginia's mediums' support arcana on a target. Pretty sweet,
 actually. At the Abyss' bottom, find the mysterious chock and play the Kramer
 Dolls to summon...

  The ultimate boss in the game! Actually, he's quite overrated. Although he
  has the highest HP yet, his oft-used 100 Billion Degrees attack is nullified
  by Fire Ward, and Giant Impact can often miss if everyone is buffed out
  with Turbulence. All physical attacks are countered with the sweep technique
  so it pays to avoid attacking for the first couple turns and have Gallows
  erect Extension + Shield/Permanence, while the others add in their support
  arcana. This battle is hell if Virginia doesn't go first, so make sure she
  has 600+ RFX to ensure Ragu doesn't kill anyone before she can heal 'em.
  Ragu's counter and Giant Impact, when they hit, can do 1500-2000 damage, so
  weaker characters can get two-shotted -- when everyone's in good health,
  having Gallows cast Distortion when it runs out is a good safeguard. And
  finally, Virginia may end up healing each turn so make sure she's always
  got 25+ FP in her reserve.

 The Sheriff Star is a one-per-game gear that's quite amazing: once active,
 all personal skills in possession are activated, regardless if there's enough
 PS points. The only downside is the Sheriff Star costs 100 points, meaning a
 person has to be Lv100 to use it. [Also, if the SS is not equipped on one
 when the game's beaten, it can be carried over to a New Game Plus!]

 After ragging on Rags, a warp appears to the 1st-floor entrance. However, a
 chock blocks the way so yet another boss must be fought to leave. And as it
 turns out, it's...

  This is a repeat of the previous fight, except Ragu will always go first
  and uses a whole lot more elemental skills. [Accelerator can still beat Ragu
  in terms of speed, however; this is a good way to heal.] Double-edged sword:
  having to worry about less physical attacks is a good thing now that the
  repertoire's larger, but without proper elemental wards, this battle can be
  a lot harder than before. Fortunately, if everyone took care of their wards
  before entering the Abyss, then most of the difficulty's ciphoned away.
  [Like before, take care to set up your wards before drawing Counter Sweep's
  wrath at anyone. Extension + Protect/Permanence at first, and make sure to
  add in Turbulence, Hyper, Distortion for good measure, etc.] Also: Virginia
  needs to have 25+ FP at all times!! Things go south quickly if she doesn't.

  Basic strategy for me (manually changing turn order): Jet Accelerator heals
  anyone at start of turn > Clive Gatlings and incurs damage > Gallows recasts
  Distortion > Virginia Mystics a Full Carrot. Works near perfectly, except
  maybe in the rare instance two physical attacks are used in the same turn,
  or someone's taking extra damage. Having the Power Cancel PS (Baselard) can
  help if the player needs to pull an audible. Having two people Finest Arts
  each turn isn't recommended, even though that skill's the only realistic
  choice in making headway.

  A cool note: remember that Bone won from the 60th-floor boss? Its function
  (can only be used with Mystic) is to cast all of Virginia's current support
  arcana onto one other target. This means that if anyone dies, she can play
  catchup immediately! Of course, one has to prepare by having her burdened
  with plenty of statuses + Permanence, and that upkeep has to be done every
  so often, but it pays off (for me, Jet kept dyin'...oh well).

 And with that, the sidequest is over! A hard-fought, hard-won Ex File Key's
 the prize, although a player's welcome to return and claim rare goodies from
 the dungeon's inhabitants.

 Finally, there's an optional boss that can be fought in this dungeon. The key
 is the northern console, which can summon the both when the correct password
 is input. Said word is 'emeth,' which is learned from the Ice Queen book at
 Ark of Destiny's library. The creature should be familiar to those who tried
 the first Wild Arms game...

  The boss' main claim to fame is the little-used Cocytus spell, inflicting
  decent ice damage on everyone, but it can also put everyone to sleep, so it
  pays to Extension + Status Lock to cover all bases. The first turn Virginia
  should Mystic a Full Carrot while Gallows Extensions Protect, reducing all
  the arcana damage that'll be incurred. One Finest Arts should be enough to
  take this buffoon out, but get the Lucky/Gella Cards out of the way first.

SECRET GARDEN QUEST                                                      [SCRT]
_______________________________________________________________________________
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Ever wonder why healing items aren't available for purchase? It's because the
 land's soil isn't that hospitable to 'em, and they only flourish in certain
 places. The main reason for completing this quest is gaining the ability to
 plant medicinal items.

OPENING UP GARDEN
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 The Secret Garden is located in-between Baskar Colony and Jolly Roger, on a
 verdant cliff separated from the plains by a gorge (there's a huge forest on
 it, so it's hard to miss). Once Claiborne is accessed, buy Dessinsey's horses
 for 2000g, gaining the ability to use them indefinitely. Buy a Call Whistle
 from Roykman and use it back in the first region, jumping the cliff and 
 finding the Secret Garden on its cliff (there's no dialogue clue to unlocking
 it).

 There, a scene with Florina will give the team [x10 Heal Berry] as payment to
 eradicate the "evil soil" in the south. This is actually the Decaying
 Labyrinth dungeon, described in its own section [WK23]. Although it can be
 beaten theoretically after finishing Lunatic Garden, it's advised to continue
 and beat Glimmering Emblem as well. The reason: the boss uses powerful dark-
 -elemental skills and two people can have Dark Ward by then.

 After clearing Decaying Labyrinth, Florina's reward is letting everyone plant
 unbuyable herbs in her garden.

OPTIONS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Eight items are available for planting: Heal Berry, Potion Berry, Mega Berry,
 Revive Fruit, Holy Root, Tiny Flower, Mini Carrot, Full Carrot.

 • Sow ------ Plant an item in one of the eight available plots. Before an
              item can be planted, Florina needs to sacrifice an item to make
              a seedling (this is only done once, not per each, mind you). An
              item can be sown eight times, or eight different items can be
              sown -- there's no rules. To get rid of an item in a plot, plant
              an item over it or wait for it to eventually give up its harvest
              and cease to exist.

 • Breeding - The method of making items grow faster, thus producing bountiful
              harvests. For instance, to make the Heal Berry more productive,
              sacrifice Heal Berries from the inventory. Some items, like the
              common berries and such, are easy to cultivate, while rarer
              items (like Mega Berries, Full Carrots, and Tiny Flowers) ask a
              player to sacrifice a crapload of those rare items to make them
              more useful.

 • Harvest -- Put any raised items into inventory (up to 99). If some items
              won't fit, Florina keeps them for the party to use later on.

BREEDING
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Each item has a different difficulty for breeding. The easier it is, the less
 specimens need be sacrificed to max out its level; the harder it is, the more
 have to be given up.

 Easy  : Heal Berry, Potion Berry, Revive Fruit
 Medium: Mini Carrot, Holy Root
 Hard  : Mega Berry, Full Carrot, Tiny Flower

 As said, breeding is the way of making the plants give up more items. But how
 does the passage of time factor into this? Different actions help out on this
 end but the hands-down best is ridiculously simple: sleeping/resting! Most
 WA3 vets would agree that Baskar Colony is a good place to sleep repeatedly,
 since it's free and has a close proximity (although Boot Hill and Humphrey's
 Peak would work as well). Just sleep 20-30 times, collect the garden harvest,
 breed, and repeat.

REWARDS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Besides the obvious awesomeness of helpful items, Florina also gives an Ex
 File Key if all eight items are bred to their maximum potential. This will
 take quite awhile because, even if a lot of items are bred during midgame
 (which is possible), some other items, like Mega Berries, aren't seen until
 later on. As for as helpfulness goes, this quest takes the cake so getting
 the "ultimate reward" should be second nature or a prudent player.

OPTIONAL BOSSES                                                          [OPTB]

 NOTE: Optional bosses tied to other sidequests are in their appropriate
       sections, such as Lolithia in Mimir's Well.

 Remember those weird red orbs that look like chocks? They appear in various
 dungeons. When Gallows uses his Kramer Dolls (obtained in Laxisland) nearby,
 it forces the incarcerated foe out into the open.
 Optional bosses are typically tackled just like normal ones: have elemental
 and status wards, Full Carrots on hand, and Finest Arts at your disposal. Of
 course Gallows should be able to Extension most of the best arcana as well.

PREPARATIONS
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 There's a few things to do before committing to these guys, and fortunately,
 there's not a lot to change.

 - Lots of Full Carrots
 - Lucky/Gella Cards (naturally...)
 - Finest Arts (taught by Violator)
 - Exodus Orb (to avoid in-dungeon backtracking)
 - Teleport Orb (to avoid backtracking in some cases)
 - Dried Flower gear on Virginia (Green Thumb doubles berry healing)
 - Gallows has Justine/Zephyr mediums (for Extension + Hyper/Permanence)
 - Pocketbook gear (Gella Boost may double gella; stacks with Gella Cards!)

 Also, remember the "trick" with switching turn order. This can be used to
 force a set acting order, which is useful if someone like Clive has Finest
 Arts -- then someone faster acting after him can use a Full Carrot and he'll
 be all set to do another the next turn.

OPTIONAL BOSS 1: Bombur
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This boss is in Ark of Destiny's basement, behind a Duplicator door. It looks
 like a memory figure but has a blue sombrero instead, and says nothing when
 "talked at." Using a Changecrest on it turns it into a Missanga gear (do this
 first; it respawns) and playing the Kramer Dolls by it summons...

  The boss is pretty crappy, but don't underestimate Wheel Laser -- Extension
  + Protect/Permanence gets it out of the picture. Other than that, the boss'
  penchant for Numb Light can rob a character of hard-won experience, so think
  about putting Status Lock on the susceptible person(s). Y'might not even be
  in the mood for Finest Arts with this guy -- it's like shooting a big fish
  in a tiny barrel...

 Prism Stick gives the "SOS FP Boost" skill, which isn't that awesome, sadly.

OPTIONAL BOSS 2: Balal Quo Naga
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Remember this cat? He was the boss fought in the sandcraft in order to reach
 the inner sea. He didn't die then; instead, he escaped and went to lick his
 wounds at the horseshoe-shaped island in the southwest part of the map. Use
 Lombardia's missiles to shoot at that weird reef until the monster thrashes
 around (visual: sand explosions), then take the sandcraft there to initiate
 battle.

  The reason this boss is being eliminated so early in the section is because
  it's ridiculously easy. Basically, outfit the sandcraft with a good weapon
  (the Ark Smasher's best but the Scud Cannon III suffices), get behind the
  beast, and have the gunner unload all ammo on it for increased damage. It
  just heals itself to full if not enough damage is done, and that's the only
  challenge to this buffoon.

OPTIONAL BOSS 3: Power Trask
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This boss is found on the way up Ka Dingel, in the same room it was fought
 the first time.

     | - Big Press [single: phys damage]                                 |
     | - Bio-Missile [single: phys damage; also damage counter]          |
     | - Contaminated Crust [global: lose one-tenth max HP each turn]    |

      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  Very straightforward battle. Virginia should Mystic a Full Carrot at once,
  and Gallows uses his next few turns Extensioning Protect/Permanence/Hyper.
  Trask 2.0 is very much the same as his first incarnation except the poison
  ability's ditched in favor of Fafnir's Contaminated Crust technique. It
  isn't that hard to defeat him without Finest Arts, actually. [Trask resists
  all elements.]

 Golden Dawn's ability can double VIT on its affected character, which makes
 them twice as durable and cuts down on after-battle healing (not that it's a
 huge issue this late in the game).

OPTIONAL BOSS 4: Heimdal Gazzo
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Heimdal Gazzo is located in Dissection Facility, whose location is denoted
 on the [WK36] map. Basically, go to the 2nd two-block room deep in the place
 and find a hidden entrance behind the southern of the two. Using Dark Wards
 ensures this boss inflicts no damage.

     | - Phantom Hazard [all: dark-elem damage]                          |

  Virginia should Mystic a Full Carrot like usual, while Gallows Extensions
  Hyper/Permanence (priority given to Protect if someone doesn't have Dark
  Ward). Phantom Hazard's likely to do 700/per target if unguarded, for
  reference; however, with Dark Wards, the boss can do no significant damage,
  leaving the Finest Arts/Valiant-boosted Gatling option on the table.

 The Gold License halves all fees at the Black Market in Little Twister, so if
 you've been eyeing that $9,999,999 Ex File Key, that's goal's a lot closer to
 get now! [Not to mention Travis' exorbitant prices are kicked down a peg so
 it's actually worthwhile to buy stuff from there now...]

OPTIONAL BOSS 5: John Dee
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This boss is in the chock found at Greenlodge, so the player'll have to go
 back through Nidhogg Pass to find it (why isn't it added to the Teleport Orb,
 ughhh!?). Bring Light/Dark Wards for everyone.

      ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
  As y'can see, John uses a lot of magic-type attacks but also knows Eraser,
  so the team can't effectively buff themselves...or can they? It's an example
  of AI baiting -- making the boss use Eraser avoids extra damage overall, so
  that should be Gallows' role here. It works best if he's faster than the
  boss, but even if he isn't, it takes heat of the Finest Arts person (the
  physical counterattack gets more brutal as John's health wanes).

  Because he has so much HP and is generally dangerous, Finest Arts is really
  the only expedient way to deal with him. If you're using Replay to empty the
  ARM faster, do it normally to minimize damage. Once whoever (Clive for me)
  is ready to unleash his stuff, do the turn order "trick" and make sure he
  goes first, then have the others clean up the FP mess and heal up as needed.
  It takes about 6-7 Finest Arts to file John under 'D' for dead. :D [Make
  sure to use Fragile before attacking!]

  NOTE: A "legitimate" non-Finest Arts way to get though this is by exploiting
        John's elemental weaknesses. Well, he starts with none, but Weakness
        arcana can give him one and the Weakness skill can really chip away
        at the bloke. [John doesn't counter arcana attacks so it's also a good
        way to avoid extra hurt. Also try using Copy Ability to get access to
        the rare set of spells John has.]

 The Ebony Shadow gives the Arcana Blocker skill, which nulls skills relative
 to one's FP level. Although it only blocks a handful of normal arcana (15?),
 the more points spent on the skill, the less FP needed to make it work. It's
 pretty cool, and more can be won in the Abyss.

OPTIONAL BOSS 6: Kraken
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Ever peer into the well by Little Twister's entrance? Using the Kramer Dolls
 by it summons this frightful octoped. Make sure that everyone has Water Ward
 before coming in! [Win some in Dissection Facility from Chimera Muses should
 y'need any; then, sell one on the Black Market -- voila!]

  Although this boss has more HP than John Dee, it's still a lot easier...if
  everyone has Water Wards. Still, the boss doesn't know Eraser, so a team is
  free to pile on as much support arcana and Permanence it. Although Finest
  Arts is still the best way to proceed overall, Kraken is (hilariously) weak
  to water. Having someone attack with water abilities -- or having someone w/
  Weakness attack while another person uses Replay -- can help out as well.
  It should take about 5-6 Finest Arts to deep-six this sucker.

 The Comet Mark incrementally increases ATT power, making it good for any
 character. If you want to use it to make a Finest Arts Gatling even more
 damage, that's fine. However, if you're designing strategies around medium-
 -swapping instead of keeping them on one character the whole game (I'm doing
 the latter as it's easiest), then being able to put it on a faster character
 can pay off too. An example would be one-shotting (Gatling) monsters in the
 Abyss. THERE IS ONLY ONE COMET MARK IN THE GAME so choose wisely!

OPTIONAL BOSS 7: Adult Mag
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This boss can be found on 3F of Leyline Observatory. Inspect one of the south
 bookshelves to see the 'Adult Mag'. Unlock it with a Duplicator and see that
 "you must be 18" to read. What this really means is one's Migrant Level has
 to be 18+ in order to fight it. If those conditions are fulfilled, then it's
 go time!

  Twelve bosses? The only proper way to do this is summon-rushing and killing
  by means of their weakness: fire. Give Virginia Moor Gault (for summon) and
  Luceid/Aqua Wisp (for MAG boost), and make sure Luceid's Weakness skill is
  maxed out. Have Jet Accelerator her a Full Carrot and have her summon, which
  should hopefully kill all twelve with little trouble. Should the bosses get
  their turns in somehow, they'll Grav a target until Agony Effect can do
  enough to kill 'em. This is avoided in two ways: (1) Extension + Reflect (2)
  Ebony Shadow's Arcana Blocker PS can nullify it on one person if maxed out
  and person has at least 25 FP (if I recall right). Mystic a Lucky Card first
  thing if y'think it's worthwhile.

 Afterwards, the pointman will say funny dialogue about just what the "adult"
 magazine is. Try all four!

OPTIONAL BOSS 8: Arioch
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Arioch is located in Den of Miasma, Clive's prologue dungeon. Remember the
 part where the path broke on the way to Goldrake (first battle)? A little
 before there's a bombable wall that leads to two chests...and the mysterious
 chock this monster can be plucked from. But there's a big surprise in store
 for someone fighting these guys...

  Ariochs come in threes and boast no amazing abilities, and are easily KO'd,
  right? Uh-huh...at first.

 The problem with this boss is that it turns into a sidequest all its own.
 After the first defeat, the bosses spread to the other dungeons and must be
 defeated 99 more times to get the Ex File Key. Each fight their stats rise,
 and they'll become semi-formidable by the time a player racks up 70+ defeats.
 [Max HP: 15000 each].

 Compounding the annoyance of this quest is the bosses' appearance. Sure they
 may be easy to defeat, but while they can appear in any dungeon, they can't
 be fought consecutively in the same one. Meaning? A player has to go back
 and forth between two different dungeons over and over to rack up kills. The
 bosses' appearance does NOT supersede the other monsters', meaning a player
 has to trudge through the normal encounters to find the correct one. [I guess
 that's not too different from usual.] When the 100th Arioch fight ends, the
 Ex File Key's obtained.

 A few sidequests are easy to miss or forget about entirely, so here they are!

ADVENTURE SERIES SIDEQUEST
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Clive's daughter Kaityln enjoys reading "Adventure" books, and reading all
 of them (select item from inventory) earns an Ex File Key. The storybooks
 don't have to be read entirely -- just the first page at least. [For specific
 info on where to find the chests, use the walkthrough maps.] I'm not sure if
 anyone can read the books to Kaitlyn, but just to make sure, have Clive the
 one doing it.

MARTINA SIDEQUEST
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 Remember the teenage girl from Claiborne's bar who leaves in search of her
 mother? This is a proper quest (can be done at any time), although there's
 not much activity on the player's part. Basically, every time she's seen,
 converse with her 'til she repeats her dialogue, then sleep/reenter town to
 check if she's gone somewhere else.

 1) Claiborne (saloon)
 2) Westwood
 3) Little Twister (saloon; post-Sand Canal)
 4) Little Rock (saloon)
 5) Humphrey's Peak (Cheville's house/fountain)
 6) Jolly Roger (saloon)
 7) Ballack Rise (street)
 8) Laxisland (saloon)

 When Martina gets to Laxisland, go upstairs to find her with her sick mom.
 Talk to her until she mentions there's no doctor in town. Return to Cheville
 in Humphrey's Peak and tell her the situation, then return to Laxisland and
 talk to all 3 women 'til they repeat their dialogue. Mileux convalesces with
 the passage of time, so the easiest way (like in the Secret Garden quest) is
 to go sleep somewhere -- although not Laxisland since there's no vacancies.
 [I suggest sleeping about 10 times in Baskar Colony].
 
 After enough time's passed, talk to Martina and she'll mention that it's time
 to return to Claiborne. Visit said town's bar and Mileux will now be the
 proprietress, and talking to Martina earns the Ex File Key. So what happened
 to Myra? She's walking the street in Little Twister......hey, not like that,
 you perverts! :p

MAP COMPLETION SIDEQUEST
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
 This one is easily missable -- not in the permanent sense, just that y'may
 never know it exists. In Humphrey's Peak, there's a dry canal -- walk under
 it and move north, through a blind tunnel that leads to the center of town.
 Move around there and find an NPC to talk to: Uncle Gob! Yes, this hideous
 outcast of gobsciety (gob + society) always dreamt of travelling the world,
 and loves looking at the team's map. He'll give an Ex File Key if the team's
 completed their map to 100% completion! Obviously this quest can only be done
 when Lombardia's obtained. 

 This quest would be nigh impossible if the player hasn't purchased the World
 Screen item from Roykman (5000g). This allows one to see the world map, and
 of course, how much of it's been completed. Black/gray squares represent the
 unfound parts, and are "removed" to show the parts underneath when traversed.
 Flying with Lombardia is the easiest way to do this. The only foreseeable
 problem with this quest is that some squares are hard to find when they've
 overlapped the map's black coastline -- pay attention to odd angles and such,
 and fly along coastlines to avoid this issue.

 Uncle Gob will tell how much of the map's been completed (in terms of %) and
 gives the EFK when it's all done! [This quest can be done at any time.]

 Duplicators are magical keys that unlock things sealed by magic -- doors,
 bookshelves, treasure chests. There are forty (40) in the game, and that
 matches the number of unlockables by that method. Note that a person can save
 Duplicators for more important things by NOT unlocking bookshelves when
 prompted -- it's a pretty useless gesture in the long run, except for the
 Adult Mag boss.

 They can be obtained in any order, too, although the tables will go in the
 general chronological order. [See walkthrough maps for specific locations.
 Asterisked (*) dungeons denote a revisit based on a recently-obtained tool.]
 Items #36-40 are easiest found with the Sonar Kit from Gunner's Heaven.

SANDCRAFT                                                                [SNDC]

 The Sandcraft is the first motorized vehicle obtained in the game, used for
 traversing the world's sand ocean. Naturally monsters lurk out there so it's
 also equipped for attacking. Each character is assigned a station, which can
 be changed as well:

 HELMSMAN : This is the person steering the ship, so of course he's in charge
            of flanking the target and firing diversions.

 HARPOONER: Like its namesake, this job is the person manning the harpoon.
            Harpooning an enemy successfully will lower a foe's RFX and make
            the gunner do more damage -- very helpful.

 GUNNER --: The person who fires the main cannon. Does more damage if the foe
            is harpooned, and if the helmsman's moved to a more advantageous
            position (flank, aft). Clive is a natural choice for this, but
            Virginia's speed helps turns come faster naturally.

 DECKMATE : In charge of assisting others actions (increases RFX) and healing
            the sandcraft if it gets damaged.

 The sandcraft is composed of four parts, which can be changed when parked at
 Jolly Roger's beach. Just talk to Amelia in town and she'll research (create)
 new parts, heal the ship, change crew positions, and equip armaments. Parts
 are made in exchange for Dragon Fossils (DF), the basic machine component.

 Dragon Fossils are dropped by any enemy in the world toward the middle of
 Chapter 2, and the sandcraft itself requires a fee of 15 to be made. [This's
 the reason to defeat Diobarg, terrorizing the Dune Canyon region.] Later on,
 these fossils can be bought from the Black Market, so that's a fast way to
 upgrade.

 Speaking of upgrades, giving the entire craft an overhaul is unnecessary --
 buying the Ark Smasher (or Scud Cannon III) will mow down any enemy, making
 the other upgrades fairly extraneous. The basic battle strategy is to "move
 to an advantageous position" after a harpooning, then "fire all ammo" at
 close-range. With good weapons, this should do 500,000+ damage.

 NOTE: If the craft's armaments and frame exceed the payload (Capacity), the
       sandcraft's HP suffers. An engine powerful enough to haul everything'll
       fix that problem, though.

 NOTE: I couldn't fit a Payload (Capacity) category for the engines into the
       chart, so I just put it in the WGT column. Don't confuse the two!

 [Q] - I can't find the Fallen Sanctuary!
 [A] - Gallows can't find it until he learns about the search system from NPC
       Cordell (Baskar Colony). He stands by the entrance and says it first
       thing.

 [Q] - Why is my health red?
 [A] - There are two reasons: (1) the character is in critical health, either
       in battle or on the field due to lack of VIT (2) character was KO'd
       during a fight and wasn't revived during that fight, and thus has lower
       (20%) HP than normal. For the latter annoyance, a Nectar item restores
       health to its natural maximum.

 [Q] - In Lunatic Garden, why can't I hit the pyramid switches!?
 [A] - Some of the younger, weaker characters like Virginia and Jet don't have
       enough "oomph" to throw that far. The two stronger allies are capable
       of the long throws.

 [Q] - Do Gella Cards stack with Gella Boost?
 [A] - Yes, they do. If you take a base of 4000g available, it's possible to
       parlay that into 16000g. Quite nice!

 [Q] - What do all those coordinates you're talking about mean?
 [A] - When the World Screen (5000g) is bought from Roykman, it lets one see
       the map, which includes current coordinates plus all dungeon locations
       (after the fact). Basically, when travelling, check it occasionally to
       see where y'are. It's NOT necessary for finding places, but it's useful
       just the same.

 [Q] - How do I use Finest Arts?
 [A] - Three steps: (1) assign points to the skill when the Violator's equipt
       on a medium (2) make sure character has no bullets (3) perform a 5-hit
       Gatling. The final hit will do phenomenal damage, which increases as
       more points are put into the Finest Arts PS.

 [Q] - How do I find Dissection Facility!?
 [A] - This always seems to hang someone up, I dunno why. The NPC to talk to
       is Dessinsey in Claiborne. After that, fly to the coastal plain where
