                                    Introduction
                                    ============
    
    Hi everyone,  this is actually my first attempt at making a FAQ/Walkthrough.
    If you saw my name anywhere else,  it was probably on the  Gamefaqs board or
    in  StoneKOTR  FAQ/Walkthrough  of Final Fantasy X.  I'm the one who did the
    Blitzball section of his FAQ/Walkthrough. You'll find everything you need to
    know about the game in this  FAQ/Walkthrough.  I'll do a small review of the
    game,  I'll  explain all the basics of the game for everyone who just starts
    playing it and  I'll  also  make  a  brief description of the characters. Of
    course,  you'll find a  full  Walkthrough  of the game and a list of all the
    items, weapons,  techs, Ether attack... You'll also find a Sidequest Section
    at the end of the Walkthrough. It will be a long FAQ/Walkthrough to make, so
    I ask for your patience. I'm new at making a FAQ/Walkthrough on my own, so I
    hope you understand that  a  project  of  this  size cannot be done within a
    month.  I'll try to put as much  time as possible on this FAQ/Walkthrough in
    the next couple of month. Enjoy yourself while playing Xenosaga!!!

                              =====================
                              I. Review of the game
                              =====================
    
    
    GRAPHICS : 8.5/10
    --------
    
    This is the first installment  of this 6 episodes series and let me tell you
    this, Monolith Soft did really good job on the graphics. At the beginning of
    the game,  you'll immediately notice  the beauty of the FMV sequences.  They
    are simply awesome. The in-game graphics could have been a little better but
    that's not a big let down.  Some  people will probably dislike the fact that
    this game is more anime style than the other RPG. Anime fans will be pleased
    to see  how  the  characters  are well-designed and so are the environments.
    This game is the one with the most FMV sequences ever.
    
    
    GAMEPLAY : 9/10
    --------
    
    Monolith Soft made a great  job by adding new elements in this game that has
    never been seen before.  The  battles are easy to understand and you need to
    have a certain amount of strategy when you're about to face a boss. You have
    3 kind of attacks : Far,  Near and Deathblows (Techs) which can be used once
    you have 6AP.  The battle system  might seem complicated at first but you'll
    get use to it in no time. Of course, the good old character levels are back,
    but you can now customize your characters  a little bit more with the points
    you get afte r each fight.  There  are  4  different kind of points you gain
    after  a  battle :  Skill Points (S.Points),  Tech Points (T.Points),  Ether
    Points (E.Points) and,  of course,  Experience Points (Exp).  The Exp points
    are leveling up  your  characters. When you reach a certain amount of point,
    your character's level will go up. T.Points are used to increase the ability
    of  your  characters  (Vitality, Strength...)  and  to  boost  their  Techs.
    E.Points  are used to learn new Ether  (magic)  or to transfer them to other
    characters.  The  S.Points  are  used to learn new skills to your characters
    (Search Eyes, Anti-Poison).  It might seem complicated when I explain it but
    it's not that hard once you get used to it.
    
    
    SOUND : 9.5/10
    -----
    
    The sound is very well done.  Even  if  thete  isn't  any in-game music, the
    sound effect are quite well done.  The music was written by Yasunori Mitsuda
    (Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Chrono Cross, Shadow Hearts...)and was performed
    by the  London  Philharmonic  Orchestra.  You  don't  hear  a  lot  of music
    throughout the game but everytime you do, it fits perfectly in the scene.
    
    
    STORY : 10/10
    -----
    
    You might find  the  beginning of the game kinda boring,  but if you can get
    past the first couple of hours, you'll end up with what will become the best
    story in a videogame ever.  It's only a prologue to the series,  but you can
    immediately see the great potential of this storyline.  The  story  was  the
    strong point in Xenogears,  Xenosaga  is  going in the same way.  That's the
    main why there are so many cut scenes.  Over  8  hours  of cinematics in the
    entire game!!!  Now  you understand why the game only fits on a dual-layered
    DVD.  Every  one  who thought Final Fantasy X had a lot or even too much cut
    scenes,  this  game  will  probably not be for you. If you can get past that
    fact, you'll an amazing game storywise, and it's only getting started!!!
    
    
    OVERALL : 9.2/10
    -------
    
    I'm  giving this game under 9.5 only because it's not a game that is open to
    everyone.  With the religious aspect in the game,  the cut-scenes lasting up
    to 40+ minutes (no kidding!!!),  some people will complain about the lack of
    action in the game. The game is a lot harder than the usual RPG. You must be
    prepare to reset the game a couple of time  or to boost your characters from
    time to time if you want to get through the game.  Some people will find the
    game a little too short (30-40 hours) but it's still an awesome game.  Every
    hardcore RPG gamers should have this game, for everyone else, rent it first.

                                  B. Field Screen
                                  ---------------
    
    The field screen might be a little  different from what you've seen in other
    RPG's. There are no world map in Xenosaga. You won't have to move from place
    to place in Xenosaga,  the game does it for you automatically.  Like in most
    RPG's,  you'll get more and more freedom as you advance through the game. On
    the field  screen,  you'll be able to locate yourself,  the ennemies and the
    NPC's (Non-Playable Characters) in the bottom right part of your screen.
    
    Once you get far enough in the game, you'll be able to revisit previous area
    with the Environmental Simulator (EVS). You'll be able to use this technique
    only when you're on a Save  Point  (Yellow)  with  a  blue EVS on top of it.
    Since there are no world map  where you can save your progress,  you'll come
    across a lot of Save Points  and  Item Plates (Gray).  You save your game by
    pressing the CIRCLE button  on the Save Point and you can buy items by using
    the same technique as for the Save Point.
    
    In some areas of the game,  you'll  come across ennemies  (in yellow on your
    radar) that can be fought. Most of them can be avoided by using a minimum of
    strategy.  Be sure to watch your radar carefully if you don't want to get in
    an unwanted fight.  If you want to escape from a fight in  Xenosaga,  you'll
    have to use an Escape Pack from your item list. You can't just hold a button
    like in many other RPG's so be careful about it.
    
    If you want to advance through the game,  you'll  sometime  have  to use the
    Vaporizer plug-in (square button).  You can blast almost anything that is in
    your way with it.  If  you  see  a  small  cylinder  shaped thing next to an
    ennemy, blast it and it will affect some of the ennemy or even your stats to
    make the battle a little easier.
    
    
                                  ----------------
                                  C. Battle Screen
                                  ----------------
    
    The battle system is very innovative in this game.  They  took  some  of the
    elements of the Xenogears battle system and they improved  it  a  little  to
    make it a little harder for the elite RPG gamers. The battle system is turn-
    based and the battle can be long if you didn't boost your characters.
    
    You should notice 8 important thing in the battle screen :
    
    Active Character :
    ----------------
    
    The active character is the one that is in  blue  at  the top of the screen.
    In that screen,  you can see your character  HP, EP, AP, Boost gauge and the
    status effect your character is affected with.
    
    
    Group Turn Window :
    -----------------
    
    On the bottom right corner of the screen is the Group Turn Window.  This box
    shows you when your characters and when the ennemy  will  attack.  The small
    triangle in this screen shows your party and the ennemy formation. Only four
    turns may occur per round so be careful. If the ennemy doesn't attack in the
    round, they will certainly attack first the next round.
    
    Button Display :
    --------------
    
    This one is displayed on the bottom right corner of the screen. It shows you
    available attack for your character to perform.  The  Square  button  is for
    near attack  (except for Jr.),  the Triangle button is for long-range attack
    and the Circle button is for sub-weapons or for Tech attacks.
    
    Action Points (AP) :
    -------------
    
    This determines what actions you can perform.  This gauge is just under your
    character's EP.  Here is a list of what you can do with the number of AP you
    have : 
    
    AP COSTS :
    --------
    Attack (normal and Tech) : 2 AP
    Attack (A.G.W.S.)        : Varies depending on the weapn
    Move                     : 2 AP
    Guard                    : 2 AP
    Use Item                 : 3 AP
    Use Ether                : 4 AP
    Use W-Item               : 6 AP
    Use Sub-Weapon           : 6 AP
    W-ACT (A.G.W.S.)         : 6 AP
    
    Boost Gauge :
    -----------
    
    You can see your character boost gauge right under  your  AP  bar.  Once you
    a 1 or more to the right of the bar,  you  can  boost one of your character.
    The boost will allow you to attack the next turn even if your character just
    attacked. It is very useful in some boss fight. Use the boost wisely.
    
    Status Effect :
    -------------
    
    You can see  if  your character is inflicted with a status effect by looking
    to the right of his boost gauge.
    
    Battle Menu :
    -----------
    
    The battle menu is available by pressing the X button and it is divided in 5
    parts : 
    
    -----
    Ether :
    -----
    If you have enough EP,  you can perform one of the Ether you have previously
    set on your character.
    
    ----
    Item :
    ----
    Use one of the item you have in your inventory.
    
    ----
    Move :
    ----
    Move your character to one  of  the  3  position in the back or in the front
    row. You take less damage  in  the  back row but you can't attack physically
    from that position.
    
    --------
    A.G.W.S. :
    --------
    Allows you to get in or out of your A.G.W.S.,  but if your A.G.W.S FHP comes
    to 0, you won't be able to revive it.
    
    -----
    Guard :
    -----
    Your character will take less damage this way but your character  turn  will
    come a lot faster this way.
    
    Event Slot :
    ----------
    
    The event slot is located to the left of the Group Turn Window.  There are 4
    kind of slots :
    
    -------
    Nothing :
    -------
    If the slot is empty, none of your stat is affected.
    
    -----------
    Critical Up :
    -----------
    If you get a red space with an UP written on it, your chance of critical hit
    will increase.
    
    --------
    Boost Up :
    --------
    If you get a green space with an UP written on it,  you'll  get  more  boost
    after your attack.
    
    -----
    Coins :
    -----
    If you kill an ennemy when the space has a coin and a  +  under  it,  you'll
    gain 2x (65% chance), 4x (30% chance),  10x (5% chance) the normal amount of
    S.Points, E.Points and T.Points.
    
    
                                   --------------
                                   D. Menu Screen
                                   --------------
    
    The menu screen in Xenosaga is standard to every other RPG  game.  First  of
    all, on the left side of the screen is your party with their current HP, EP,
    level, Exp acquired, Exp needed to get to the next level and their name.  On
    the bottom right corner of the screen,  you  have  characters  that  are  in
    Reserve,  your play time and the money you have so far.  Between the menu to
    the right and your characters status on the right is the party position.
    
    The menu on the right side of the screen is divided in 9 parts :
    
    Items :
    -----
    In this section of the menu,  you'll  be able to see all the different items
    you've acquired so far. If you want to switch between the type of items, use
    the L1 and R1 button.  You  can use the triangle button to sort the items by
    Name,  Category  or  Amount.  While  you cycle through the menu, you'll come
    across your Recovery  Items,  Special  Items,  Weapons,  Accessories,  Ammo,
    A.G.W.S. weapons, A.G.W.S. accessories and the A.G.W.S. weapon ammo.
    
    Ether :
    -----
    The Ether menu will allow you to use Recovery magic,  allocate  E.Points  to
    learn new Ether or even transfer  one  of  your character's Ether to another
    one.  In order to use  an  Ether  in  battle,  you must first Set it to your
    character.  Each  Ether has some kind of weight and you must not get over 12
    Ether weight.  Some  Ether are heavier than other so be careful when you set
    them. The number of E.Points available is at the top of the screen.
    
    Note : To transfer an Ether,  you only need half the E.Points written beside
           the Ether.  The  character  transfering the Ether will keep the Ether
           attack.
    
    Tech Attacks :
    ------------
    As you advance through the game, your characters will learn new Tech Attacks
    as they  become  stronger  (except KOS-MOS : sent by e-mail).  To  use  Tech
    attacks,  you must have 6 AP, perform 2 normal attack (square, triangle) and
    then you'll have the opportunity to use a third attack (circle).  This third
    attack is the Tech.  You  can  decide  which  Tech  attack you'll use too by
    setting them in the Tech Attack menu. There are 2 types of Tech, short-range
    and long-range.  You  can  set 3-4 long-range  attack  and  1-2  short-range
    attack.  You can use your T.Points to upgrade your Tech's Level,  Speed  and
    Wait. The Level is the power of your Tech,  the Wait is the time you'll have
    to wait before you'll be able to get  another turn and if you boost the Tech
    Speed, you'll be able to set it in the higher slots (can perform a Tech with
    only 4 AP).
    
    Skills :
    ------
    The skills are special abilities that  you  can  equip your characters with.
    These skills either boost  your  character's  stats  or protect them against
    certain status effect.  As  you  get  more  equipements for your characters,
    you'll be able to Extract more  skills.  You  can extract skills from Armor,
    Hat and Accessories.  You'll  only be able to Extract skills that are of the
    same S.Level or are lower to  your  S.Level.  You  can boost your S.Level by
    extracting more and more skills. You must also have enough S.Points in order
    to Extract the skill.  You  can see your S.Points and the S.Level on the top
    left corner of the Skill Menu. Skills are not automatically equipped as soon
    as you extract them. You're only able to set 3 skills for each character, so
    choose them wisely.  You  can switch between characters by using the L1,  R1
    button.
    
    Characters :
    ----------
    Basically, this is the status screen. You can change the lead character (the
    one displayed in Quest Mode)  by pressing the square button on the character
    you want to be the leader.  On this screen, you'll see your characters stats
    to the bottom of the screen,  their T.Points,  E.Points  and S.Points to the
    right of the screen. You can also equip or unequip different weapons,  armor
    and accessories by using the Equip or Unequip  option.  The Use T.Pts option
    allows you to customize your characters.  With  that  option,  you can boost
    any statistic you want (Vit,  Str,  EAtk....).  That way,  you can control a
    little more what kind of character you want. 
    
    A.G.W.S. (Anti-Gnosis Weapon System) :
    ------------------------------------
    The A.G.W.S. screen is a lot like the characters screen except that this has
    been made for the A.G.W.S..  To the bottom of the screen you see their stats
    and you can see the name of the  A.G.W.S.  and  the registered combattant in
    the top right corner of the screen.  You  can  change the equipments of your
    A.G.W.S. by using the Equip or the Unequip option. What's great in this game
    is that you can put any  character  in  the  A.G.W.S.  (except  KOS-MOS  and
    Ziggy). To do so, use the Pilot option.
    
    Battle Formation :
    ----------------
    In this menu, you can change your party formation by either replacing one of
    your character or by changing their position in the battle screen.  You  can
    change your character's position on  the  battle  screen  by  selecting  the
    Formation option in the small menu to the right.  If you want to replace one
    of your character, select the Replace option,  choose the character you want
    to replace and choose one of the character in the reserve.
    
    U.M.N. (Unus Mundus Network) :
    ----------------------------
    I've never that kind of thing in any other RPG before.  In this screen,  you
    can read, reply e-mail and sometimes download attachments for KOS-MOS.   You
    can also look in the Database.  The  Database  has  all  the  Gnosis  you've
    encountered so far and their description.  You can also look in the Keywords
    section to have a  description  of  all  the  technical  terms,  characters,
    ennemies...  There  are  also  some  Plug-ins  you'll receive as you advance
    through the game.  The EVS option allows you to return to previously visited
    places.  This  is very useful if you forgot to get some items or if you want
    to go back to some places to do some side quests.
    
    Game Options :
    ------------
    This screen is the basic options of the game. Here are the options :
    
    Sound Output : You can switch to Mono or Stereo
    
    Cursor Location Memory : If you switch this on,  every  time  you open a new
                             window, the cursor will be over the last option you
                             chose.
    
    Vibration : Turn the vibration On/Off.
    
    Radar Display : Turn the small radar in the Quest Mode On/Off.
    
    Monitor Setting : Adjust the position of the screen.
    
    Default : Reset all the settings to default.
    
    
                                       -------
                                       E. Tips
                                       -------
    
    I'll  give  you  some  tips  on  gameplay  if  you  don't to have a too much
    difficulties while going through the game.
    
    1- As soon as you can do so, boost the speed of your Techs. This way, you'll
    be able to perform the Techs even if you have only 4 AP.
    
    2- Be  sure  to  boost  both  your  character's  stats  and your tech level.
    Boosting only one of the two will lead nowhere.
    
    3- The  best  place  to  get  T.Points,  E.Points  and  S.Points  is  in the
    Encephalon when you go back on Miltia.  When you first control Jr., get into
    a fight by going under the spotlights.  These ennemies will give you a great
    amount of points so that you'll be able to boost your stats a lot faster.
    
    4- When you start a fight against a boss or a tough ennemy,  you should do a
    guard on all your characters during the first turn.  That way, you won't get
    it the hard right away  and  you'll  have  the  chance to perform your Techs
    right away for big damage on the ennemy.
    
    
    
                                   ===============
                                   III. Characters
                                   ===============
    
    A) Shion :
    --------
    
    Sex    : Female
    Height : 163 cm (5'4")
    Weight : 48 kg (106 lbs)
    Age    : 22
    
    Shion is the Chief Engineer on the  KOS-MOS Project General Operation System
    Research Center,  Vector  Industries First R&D Division. Shion is surely the
    most balanced character of the game.  Her  weapon enables her to have strong
    physical and Ether attacks.  She  also  has  the ability to heal the others,
    which will be very useful during the whole game.  If you boost her properly,
    she can become one of the best character in your party.
    
    B) KOS-MOS : 
    ----------
    
    Sex    : Female
    Height : 167 cm (5'6")
    Weight : 92 kg (203 lbs)
    Age    : Looks about 18
    
    KOS-MOS is a female armored battle android developed by Vector Industries to
    fight the Gnosis.  She is  entirely  made of mechanical part, which explains
    her weight ;).  Even if Shion is the one who created her,  KOS-MOS still has
    secret powers hidden inside of her. As you advance through the story, you'll
    discover them one after another. She is one of the most powerful attacker of
    the game but she isn't good at using Ether. She is still a great addition to
    your party.
    
    C) Ziggurat 8 (Ziggy) :
    ---------------------
    
    Sex    : Male
    Height : 191 cm (6'3")
    Weight : Unknown
    Age    : 98 since body recycling (looks 30)
    
    Ziggurat 8 is a combat cyborg assigned the task of recovering and protecting
    MOMO,  the prototype 100-Series Observation Realian.  When he was human,  he
    died but giving his bodyto science, he was brought back to life as a cyborg.
    Constantly  trying  to  forget  he  was  once  human,  he  tunes his body to
    eliminate every human part of his body,  reducing himself from a person to a
    mere object.  Ziggy  is  a  very strong attacker and can take a whole lot of
    damage.  He's  not  good  at  using  Ether but he has a couple of good Ether
    attacks.
    
    D) MOMO (Multiple Observative Mimetic Organicus) :
    ------------------------------------------------
    
    Sex    : Female
    Height : 141 cm (4'8")
    Weight : 36 kg (79 lbs)
    Age    : Looks about 12
    
    MOMO is  a  prototype  100-Series  Observational  Realian  (synthetic human)
    developed  to  observe  and  contact Gnosis. Although she looks like a sweet
    little girl  on  the  outside,  she  can  become  really  useful  in  battle
    especially when paired with Jr. or Ziggy.  Her  healing abilities are a plus
    if you get in trouble in a battle.  She is without a doubt the best at using
    Ether and she can also steal with the Tech Magic Caster.  She  doesn't  do a
    of physical damage,  but like I said,  she becomes really useful in the back
    row.
    
    E) chaos :
    --------
    
    Sex    : Male
    Height : 169 cm (5'7")
    Weight : 53 kg (117 lbs)
    Age    : Looks about 16
    
    A slender young boy whose true age is unknown.  His  perpetually melancholic
    expression and the depth of his conversation  give  the impression that he's
    not really human,  more  like  he hails from a higher plane of existence. We
    don't know a lot about this boy except his name. He definitely is one of the
    most mysterious I've ever seen in a video game.  This  is  definitely one of
    best character of the game.  He  can deal a lot of Ether-based damage and is
    really good for healing your party too.  He's  not  as  strong physically as
    Ziggy but he's still a good addition to your team.
    
    F) Jr. :
    ------
    
    Sex    : Male
    Height : 140 cm (4'7")
    Weight : 38 kg (84 lbs)
    Age    : Looks about 12
    
    Jr. is one of the directors of the Kukai Foundation. Even if he doesn't look
    like it,  he's  more  than an ordinary human.  His ability with the guns are
    incredible. If you played Xenogears, you'll probably recognize Billy in this
    young boy. All of his attacks are long-ranged, which makes him really strong
    against flying ennemies.  His  Ether  abilities  are  not  as  strong as his
    physical attacks but he's still a really good choice in a battle.
    
    
    WARNING : The next section of the guide may contain some spoilers.
    
    
    
                              ===============
                              IV. Walkthrough
                              ===============
    
    
    --------------------------------------
    A. Encephalon KOS-MOS Battle Simulator
    --------------------------------------
    
    Recommended Level (start) : 1
    Recommended Level (end) : 3
    Items : Med Kit, Revive, Ether Pack, 4x Med Kit S
    Key Items : Battle Passport
    Enemies : Drone M, Drone F, Attack Drone, Drone G1, Drone G2, Drone G3
    Segment Address : #10
    Decoder : None
    Others : None
    
    After a brief introduction to the two main characters in  the  game,  you'll
    start going through a battle tutorial.  If  you don't want to go through the
    whole thing,  just choose the Switch to Real Combat option and just beat the
    Drone M,  the Drone F and the Attack Drone. Once you're done with it, you'll
    see yet another cut scene.  You better get used to it.  After  that,  you'll
    find yourself in the KOS-MOS Battle Simulator.
    
    First of  all,  go left from the starting point and climb the ladder.  Fight
    guards and then grab the treasure chest for 2 Med Kit S.  Go  back  down the
    ladder and go down the small slope to the  right  of  your  starting  point.
    Blast the truck using the square button  and  then go up the small stair set
    to the right. Blast the door to the south for another Med Kit.  Fight  the 2
    ennemies there if you want to and then proceed through the door to the north
    into the next area.  Go up the stairs until you come across an intersection.
    Go south first and blast  the  2  boxes  in your way. Grab the Revive in the
    second box.  Make your way back to the intersection and choose the left path
    this time and through the door. Here, you'll have to fight your first boss.
    
    ---------------------
    Boss Name : Drone SPX
    HP : 280
    Type : Mech
    Weakness : Lightning
    ---------------------
    
    No real strategy for this boss.  Guard  with  KOS-MOS on your first turn and
    then do your R.Cannon.  Shion can just guard or attack. He'll give you a Med
    Kit S once you beat him.
    
    From now on,  the  ennemies  are  different.  If  you  want  to  boost  your
    characters a little,  it's a good time to do so.  You can save your game now
    at the yellow thing if you want to. I suggest you do.  Once you're ready, go
    down the stairs to the right  and  down  the  ladder through the door south.
    Blast the 2 boxes to the right for an Ether Pack and 2 Med Kit S.  Blast the
    junk in front of the door and look at the door.  These  red  doors needs the
    good decoder in order to open it.  You can blast the box to the left too but
    you'll have to fight 3 Drone G1.  Go back up the ladder and into the door to
    the right.  Grab  the  mission  key and go out of the room using the door to
    the right.  You  can  get past the ennemies if you don't make any noise.  Go
    down the stairs and then north through the door.  You'll  then have to fight
    another boss.
    
    --------------------
    Boss Name : Drone GX
    HP : 420
    Type : Gnosis
    Weakness : Slash
    --------------------
    
    Get Shion in her AGWS and have KOS-MOS Guard the first turn.  Do  not attack
    Drone GX when he does his Active  Guard.  When  you  have  the  opportunity,
    attack with Shion using the  square  button  and  do a R.Blade with KOS-MOS.
    Repeat until the boss goes down. You'll get an Ether Pack S after the fight.
    
    
    -----------
    B. Woglinde
    -----------
    
    Recommended Level (start) : 3
    Recommended Level (end) : 6
    Items : 5x Med Kit, 2x Frame Repair A, 3x Escape Pack, 2x Frame Repair Z,
            2x 200G, 2x Veil, Revive DX,  2x Bio Sphere, 2x Ether Pack, SMP53AG,
            5x Revive, Med Kit S, Ether Pack S, Coat Lightning
    Key Items : Maintenance  Data, Drill Passport, Segment File, M.W.S.,
                Vaporizer Plug-In, Robot Part Right Arm, Crewman's Key
    Enemies : Goblin, Gremlin, Manticore, Golem
    Segment Address : #7, #16, #18
    Decoder : #7, #18
    Others : None
    
    Before going anywhere else, you should go back into the Simulator by talking
    to the person next to it  (the red thing to the south).  Once you're back in
    the simulator, go where you fought the last boss.  There should be a red box
    in this  room.  Blast it and open the chest to get the Battle Passport.  Now
    the EVS point there to go back on the Woglinde.
    
    Once back on the Woglinde,  go  inside  the  room  to  the right side of the
    screen. After some walking, you'll receive your first e-mail. Keep following
    the path and you'll eventually see another cut scene.  After  the cut scene,
    talk  to  the  guy  near  the  door  to  the  right  and  choose  to get the
    information from him. You'll receive an e-mail from him later on. Keep going
    right until you get in another  cut  scene  showing  you Allen bringing some
    Data to Shion.  After the cut scene, walk north of the intersection and look
    at the door to the right side to  discover  segment  address  #18.  Continue
    north and into the room to the right.  You're now in Shion's quarters.  Grab
    the  Maintenance Data on the desk and Save your game if you need to.  You'll
    receive another e-mail on your way outside the room.  Once outside the room,
    go back south and left at the intersection.  
    
    In this room,  you  have to talk to all the Realians before going further in
    the game.  Once this is done,  and  that you've seen the cut scene,  proceed
    through the door to the north.  Before going north, come back in the Realian
    room and you will receive an e-mail  asking  you some help to investigate on
    a mysterious hacker. Reply the e-mail and accept the offer.  Now, go back in
    the room to the north.  In this room, help the guy on the left side to clear
    all the debris in your way.  Once you've done that, you'll receive the Drill
    Passport and a Med Kit.  Keep  going north until you receive another e-mail.
    Go through the door to the north.  You  can save your game in the first room
    on the left if you  want.  Continue  north  and  left at the intersection to
    receive another e-mail.  Reply  to  it by choosing I Read Your E-Mail.  Keep
    going north and into the room  to  the  right.  In  this  room,  you'll  see
    Sgt. Swaine.  Talk to him and  he'll  give  you the Segment File.  Go to the
    right a little and you'll receive another e-mail.  Go back left a little and
    north.  Play tag 3 times with  the  2 guys on the left for 3 Med Kits.  Keep
    going north and go left at the  intersection and into the room.  Talk to the
    guy in orange to the right and he'll offer you to buy some  stuff.  You  can
    also fight in the A.G.W.S. Battle Simulator to gain real EXP.  Go back south
    and go right after that.  In  this  room,  you  will see the Segment Address
    #16.  You can save your  game  in  the  small  room  while you make your way
    around.  Go up the elevator.  After another cut scene,  you'll  get Miyuki's
    reply with a file attached to it.  Download  it  and  then leave the bridge.
    You'll receive an  announcement  to  go  to  the  A.G.W.S.  Hangar  to get a
    package.  Go left from where you are,  north  at  the first intersection and
    then left into the room.  Talk  to  the  guy and the left and you'll receive
    your weapon (M.W.S.).  Go back where the elevator was by taking the corridor
    5.  You'll receive another e-mail there asking to invest in a company. Do so
    if you want to and take the door to the south. Don't go in Shion's room yet.
    Go back in the lab where  you  first  started  the  game  and you'll receive
    another e-mail.  Go back Shion's quarter,  rest  and you'll be attack by the
    Gnosis.
    
    Once outside your room, go fight the Gnosis there. You'll soon find out that
    you can't go one on one against the Gnosis yet.  After  the short cut scene,
    you'll find yourself in another room.  Run to the right and press the second
    red switch to block the Gnosis.  After  that,  keep moving and hide yourself
    behind the shelf on the  right.  Press  the  switch  there and then proceed.
    Next,  make sure the next  Gnosis  see  you and then go hide yourself in the
    room with the save point.  After  the  cut scene you can proceed in the next
    room.  Here, climb the ladder and press the switch to get rid of the Gnosis.
    Keep going left at the intersection and into the A.G.W.S. Hangar.  Get  your
    Vaporizer plug-in by talking to the guy to the right. Blast the box north of
    the hangar to get 2 Frame Repair A,  an  Escape  Pack  and 2 Frame Repair Z.
    Once this is done,  attract the Gnosis trapped in the small place so that he
    blast the small box.  You'll  get  200G  and 2 Veil for you effort. Once you
    have the Vaporizer Plug-In, go back where you fought the last Gnosis.  Blast
    the big box in the way  and  climb  the  ladder.  You'll  see to small boxes
    there, blast them and you'll get 1 Revive DX  and  200G.  Get back where the
    car was blocking the way and blast it.  Use  the same technique that you use
    in the tag to get rid of the 2 Gnosis. Once this is done, you'll receive the
    Decoder #7 from Sgt. Swaine.  Unlock the Segment Address in front of you and
    you'll get the Robot Part  Right  Arm.  Come  back in the big room and blast
    everything you see.  You'll  get a Bio Sphere and an Ether Pack.  Go through
    the door to the south. After the cut scene, look at the dead body to get the
    Crewman's Key.  Open  the door to the left and open the chest for a SMP53AG.
    Leave the room and keep going south.  You  can save your progress in the 2nd
    room. After the cut scene, you'll now have to fight a small boss.
    
    --------------------
    Boss Name : Cyclops
    HP : 560
    Type : Gnosis/Mech
    Weakness : Lightning
    --------------------
    
    Guard on the first round  and  then  attack  by  using combo with the Square
    button. DO NOT USE the triangle  button  or  it will counter attack with the
    Spread Beam. After the fight, you'll receive a SMG99AG.
    
    After the small cut scene,  blast  the  2 destroyable things on the right to
    get an Ether Pack and a Med Kit.  In this room, get in the room and open the
    partition door.  Go  north and blast the big thing in the middle of the room
    to get a Bio Sphere. Keep going north.  In this room, blast the thing in the
    middle to get 2x Revive. Go to the right until you come to a Gnosis. Pass to
    the right and blast everything there to get a Med Kit S and an Ether Pack S.
    Keep moving north and into the room.  Blast the window and grab the chest to
    get the Decoder #18.  You can rest and save your game there.  Make  your way
    south and unlock the Segment Address #18 to get a Coat Lightning. Keep going
    south and go left as soon as you can. Blast the big box to the north and the
    one upstairs to get an 2x Escape Pack.  The  other  box  has an enemy in it.
    Keep moving south until you come across a Gnosis with black boxes beside it.
    Blast them and you'll get 3x Revive.  Get through the door south.  After the
    cut scene, you'll have to fight another boss.
    
    --------------------------
    Boss Name : Minotaur
    Sub Boss Name : Sky Fish
    Boss HP : 920
    Sub Boss HP : 240
    Boss Type : Gnosis
    Sub Boss Type : Gnosis

    --------------------------
    
    Get Shion in her A.G.W.S. on  the  first turn and KOS-MOS guard.  Get rid of
    the 2 Sky Fish first.  After that,  unleash your most powerful attack on the
    boss.  Every time he's about  to  do  his  Gravity  pulse,  guard  all  your
    characters.  That  way,  you'll  take  a  lot less damage. After the battle,
    you'll receive a Skill Upgrade S or a Skill Upgrade Z (rare).
    
    A 45 minutes cinematic is  coming  so  you  better make yourself comfortable
    for some time. Time to get some pop-corn. ^_^

    When you have control of Ziggurat 8,  head past the guards and to the right.
    Blast everything in your way there to get a  Scope  and  2x Ether Upgrade S.
    Once you're done in the room, proceed through the door north.
    
    After the short cut-scene,  you'll  regain  control  of  Ziggurat 8 but this
    time, the guards will be able to see you.  You  can  avoid all the guards in
    this place if you want to.  Make  your  way past the first 3 guards into the
    next room. Blast the big thing south of you to get 2x Revive.  You can blast
    the one to the north twice to open up a path.  Go there first to get a Snake
    Hunter. You'll also find the Segment Address #4 there.  Come  back  down and
    move to the very middle of the room.  You'll  find a big statue with a chest
    under it. Blast it and you'll get the Decoder #11.  Proceed  into  the  next
    room accross the bridge. In this room,  you can either fight the Mercurio or
    distract it by moving the crane to the  left.  You  almost  don't  have  any
    chances of survival against the Mercurio so I suggest you to move the crane.
    now that the A.G.W.S. is distracted,  go  down the ladder and proceed to the
    right.  After the cut scene,  you'll  have to fight the 2 guards.  After the
    fight, MOMO will tell you to find the Master Key, so that's what we're gonna
    do.
    
    Now,  head  down the slope and down the stairs. Grab the chest just past the
    yellow thing to get 2x Veil.  Now,  proceed  to  the right of the screen and
    through the door south.  Blast  the  boxes to the left in this room to get a
    Bio Sphere, an Ether Pack S,  100 G,  a Med Kit S and a Revive. The last box
    to the south contains a Cyber Crab. Once you have all the items, go into the
    Monitoring Room to the south.  In here, you'll have to destroy the ennemy to
    get to the Master Key.
    
    ---------------------
    Boss Name : Gardis M1
    HP : 450
    Type : Mech
    Weakness : Lightning
    ---------------------
    
    Use the first round to guard and then use  the  Triangle,  Triangle,  Circle
    combo to deal around 280-300 damage. You're now half-way through the battle.
    You can destroy the  2  little Gardis F10 if you want to get more Exp at the
    end of the battle.  After that, finish the boss with another Lightning Fist.
    You'll receive a Med Kit S after the fight.
    
    Grab the chest to obtain the Master Key.  Once you've done this,  make  your
    way back to MOMO's cell. Grab the Speed Stim in the first cell and then make
    your way to the left.  You  can  also  save  your  progress in the 2nd cell.
    Before getting into any fights,  put MOMO right behind Ziggurat 8. She'll be
    very useful that way and she can't deal  a  lot  of damage anyway. Fight the
    Mercurio A that you previously distracted.  You'll  get the Decoder #4 and a
    Med Kit S for this fight. Climb the ladder and head to the left.  You'll see
    that you can't go that way anymore. We'll have to find another way to get to
    the Segment Address #4.  Climb  down  the ladder and head for the Monitoring
    Room.
    
    After the cut scene, Ziggurat 8 will now be called Ziggy.  Now,  operate the
    console to unlock a door.  Get  out of the room and go through the door just
    south of your position and then climb  down  the  ladder.  Once  you  regain
    control of Ziggy, you'll have to make your way through the sewer. The second
    red object you see (the one near the door) has a Med Kit under  it.  Now  go
    through the door. In this room, blast the 2 plupits on either side to obtain
    2x Ether Pack and an Ether Pack S. Grab the chest to get an Ether Upgrade Z.
    
    Go back outside of this room and  continue left until you come accross 2 red
    things. You'll get a Revive from the second one.  Proceed  across the pipes.
    Behind one of the wall,  you'll find a destructible object.  Blast it to get
    an Ether Pack S.  Keep going left and you'll eventually have the possibility
    to climb a ladder.  Climb  it  and after the cut scene, you'll have to fight
    another boss.
    
    ------------------------------
    Boss : 2x Mercurio B, Zolfo A
    Mercurio B HP : 640
    Zolfo A HP : 820
    Type : Mech
    Mercurio's Weakness : None
    Zolfo A's Weakness : Lightning
    ------------------------------
    
    Cast Sheep Beam with MOMO everytime you can on the 2 Mercurio,  the  Zolfo A
    will then attack his own member. Keep using it until the 2 Mercurio go down.
    Have Ziggy attack the Zolfo A with his Lightning Fist. This is a really easy
    fight if you do like I said.
    
    After the fight,  blast everything you can to get 2 Bio Sphere and 8 Med Kit
    S.  Proceed through the door to the north.  You  can  save your game in this
    room if you want. Proceed through the door and go to  the  right.  Climb the
    stairs that we previously unvealed and unlock the Segment Address #4. You'll
    get a Thief Ring from the treasure chest. Make your way back down and go all
    the way to the left. You'll now have to fight Margulis.
    
    --------------------
    Boss Name : Margulis
    HP : 820
    Type : Biological
    Weakness : None
    --------------------
    
    Note : You don't have to win  this fight  to  continue  the  game.  Think of
           Margulis as an optional boss.
    
    Start the fight by casting My Bodyguard on Ziggy. MOMO is there to heal when
    you need to.  Be aware of Margulis, he can easily deal over 80 HP of damage.
    It really helps if you're at least level 10 with Ziggy. Once My Bodyguard is
    cast on Ziggy, bat the hell out of Margulis. You should be able to deal over
    150 damage when you have My  Bodyguard  cast  on  Ziggy.  You should use the
    Square-Square-Circle combo when My Bodyguard is cast on you. After 5 attacks
    or so,  Margulis will go down.  You'll  either  receive  a  Red  Ring  o r a
    Purple Ring (rare) for your effort.
    
    Watch the cut scene and you'll be back on the Elsa.

    Once you regain control of Shion,  you  have  to  take the meal to commander
    Cherenkov, but we'll do some other things first. Start by taking the door to
    the southwest and then talk to the robot to receive the  Card  Passport.  Go
    north through the door and into the dorm  right  in  front  of  you.  You'll
    receive an e-mail about the EVS Simulator before entering the  room.  Search
    the pink bench and you'll get the Disarm Key.  Get out of this room and head
    to the south-east. You'll receive another e-mail with a file attached to it.
    Download the file and then head all the way north and then right if you want
    to buy some stuff or left into the elevator to keep going.
    
    After the short cut scene,  make  your  way across the corridor.  Blast  the
    thing to your left to get an Ether Pack. Move to the right and you'll get an
    e-mail.  Go  north  first and blast everything in here to receive a Med Kit,
    2x Ether Upgrade S and another Med Kit.  Get  back  to  where  you were just
    before and go south at the intersection.  Blast the 2 things to your left. A
    secret path will open.  Take it and blast everything at the end of it to get
    50 G and an Ether Upgrade A. Head east and then south, blast the boxes there
    and you'll receive 150 G and 200 G.  Keep  moving  west  into the next room.
    Take the door to the  north  and  blast  the boxes on the left to reveal the
    Segment Address #8.  Check  the control panel and activate it.  Get  on  the
    small bridge and take the right path.  Blast the box there to receive 200 G.
    Go left and blast the boxes to receive 50 G,  a Bio Sphere, a Spirit Pendant
    and the Decoder #10.  Head  back across the bridge and take the left path at
    the intersection. Blast the boxes there to get a Med Kit, 5x Ether Upgrade A
    and a Bio Sphere.  Go  back at the intersection and take the right path this
    time and left when you can turn.  In this room,  blast everything and you'll
    receive 100 G, 150 G,  a Fiber Suit and an Ether Upgrade S. You'll also find
    the Segment Address #14.  Make your way back to the room where chaos was and
    take the door to the south this time.
    
    In this room,  go  down the small lift and go all the way south.  There is a
    Coat Beam to the south in  this  room.  Make  your  way back and blast the 3
    boxes on the left.  You'll receive 5 Ether Upgrade A.  Go up the lift to the
    left and talk to Cherenkov. After the cut scenes, we'll have some more stuff
    to do before advancing with the game. 
    
    Go out of the room and talk to Tony in there.  Accept  to  help him find the
    Hazardous Area Map.  You  should make sure you have at least 1000 G here for
    the next e-mail investment. Take the lift to the right now and make your way
    back up the elevator. Once you're on the first floor, go in the dorm to your
    right and south into the door. Touch the top of the table and you'll receive
    an e-mail. Get out of the dorm using the south door and go in the restaurant
    to your south. If you move to the middle of the room, you'll receive another
    e-mail.  Get out of the restaurant  through  the door you previously entered
    and just before the bridge,  you'll  see that the Save Point here has turned
    into an EVS/Save Point.  You  can  now play with different Passports on this
    Save Point and you can  use  the  EVS (Environmental Simulator) to return to
    previously visited area. Now go to the bridge once you're done with it.
    
    You now have to go to  the  Catapult  Deck  to  check on the system and then
    report to the bridge. We still have some other things to take care of first.
    Talk to Captain Matthews  and  you'll  receive the Hazardous Area Map.  Move
    toward the EVS/Save Point  and you'll receive an e-mail asking you to invest
    in a company once again.  Choose  the "I Will Invest in Venture Link" reply.
    You'll receive your prizes later.  Go  into  the  EVS and choose the KOS-MOS
    simulator.
    
    Remember the Segment Address here, you can now unlock it. Move to then north
    and go up the stairs in this room.  You  can  avoid confrontation by walking
    near the ennemy since they can't  see you if you don't make any noise.  Once
    you're upstairs,  take  the first door you see and you'll find yourself in a
    room with a ladder.  Go  down  this  ladder  and into the room to the south.
    Blast the 2 boxes to the right and you'll see the Segment Address.  Open  it
    to receive 2 Booster Pack.  Go  back  the  same way you came in. Go down the
    stairs and go in the room to the left of there. You can then exit the EVS.
    
    Now that you're back on the Elsa,  use  the elevator (you should be familiar
    with this place now) and go into  the  second  door  you see to the north on
    your way right.  Go down the ladder,  go through the door and go all the way
    south in the room where the Save Point is.  Use the door south to get to the
    A.G.W.S. Hangar.  Here,  talk  to  Tony  and you'll receive a Med Kit DX for
    finding the Hazardous Area Map.  Go  back where you come from all the way to
    the door with the ladder.  Instead of using the ladder here,  go to the left
    to get to the Catapult Deck.  Go  to the very end of this area and press the
    red switch.  After  the short cut scene,  head back for the door you came in
    and you'll receive another e-mail about  the  mysterious  hacker.  Reply  by
    choosing the "Cargo Ship Seems Suspicious" answer.  You  should  now have 25
    differend e-mails in your list.  If you don't, you probably missed one. Make
    your way back to the bridge using the ladder  and  then  the  elevator.  You
    should save your game now.
    
    Note : The next section of this FAQ  has  the same map except that the items
           are replenished and appear  only  during  that time of the game.  You
           won't be able to get them later in the game.  So  be sure not to miss
           any of them.

    After the 20 minutes movie,  you'll regain control of your party. Get out of
    this room and go down the elevator.  Blast  the  thing on the left to get an
    Ether Pack.  You'll see a small cut scene as you go to the right. Go through
    the door north and blast everything in here to receive and  Ether  Pack,  an
    Escape Pack and a Bio Sphere. Proceed down the ladder. As you're about to go
    through the door,  you'll  see  another  small cut scene.  You'll  then have
    control of Ziggy and MOMO.  As you go through the ennemies,  blast the boxes
    on the side of the room to receive an Antidote, an Ether Upgrade S, 5x Skill
    Upgrade A and  an Ether Upgrade A.  The 2 big boxes at the end have an Ether
    Upgrade S and an Antidote.  Now  go  through  the door to the right and keep
    going in the corridor until you find Shion and the others.
    
    Once you regain control,  you'll  have to decide which party member you want
    to use. Put anyone in your party,  it  doesn't really matter.  Go  south and
    then left at the intersection.  Blast  the  4  boxes  there  to  receive  an
    Antidote, a Frame Repair A and a Skill Upgrade S.  Back at the intersection,
    go south a little and left immediately.  Blast  the  5  boxes to get a Frame
    Repair A, a Med Kit S, an Ether Pack and an Antidote.  Make your way back on
    the small deck and go  south  through  the  door.  Use the door to the right
    here.  Don't worry about the electric  floor,  they won't do you any damage,
    you'll just walk a lot slower.  Blast  the 3 boxes to get an Escape Pack and
    2 Skill Upgrade A.  Go  upstairs and blast the box to get a Med Kit S.  Keep
    moving left and blast the 2  big  boxes  to get an Escape Pack and to open a
    new path.  Go  in  the  new  path and blast the 3 boxes there to get another
    Escape Pack and an Ether Upgrade S. Go all the way back to the room with the
    save point.  Heal your characters,  save  your  game and then go through the
    door to the south.  Go  down  the  lift  and go all the way south past the 3
    ennemies. You'll find yourself in a room with the boss in the middle of it.

    HP : 1800
    Type : Mech
    Weakness : Lightning
    ------------------------
    
    Your best party for this fight is  Shion,  chaos and Ziggy.  Shion and chaos
    have their own A.G.W.S. and Ziggy  has a lightning elemental attack so he'll
    be very useful in this fight.  The  first  turn  the boss will get,  he will
    analyze the event slot.  He will save the symbol in his memory and everytime
    he will get a turn with this symbol,  he  will  do his Tremor attack causing
    200+ damage so be very careful. Get in your A.G.W.S. with Shion and chaos on
    your first turn and Guard with Ziggy (heal if necessary). W-ACT is your best
    bet in this fight and whenever you have the chance,  attack with Ziggy using
    his Lightning Fist. After the fight, you'll receive an Anti-Beam Armor.
    
    After the short cut scene,  you'll have to show Ziggy and MOMO around. Start
    by going in the Kitchen.  After that,  go  in the 2 Cabins and then head for
    the Bridge. Once you're done, go down the elevator.  Go in the room with the
    Save Point and after the dialog,  run  a  little  around the room and you'll
    receive an e-mail giving you your  reward  if  you previously invested in an
    industry. Go through the door south into the A.G.W.S. Hangar. After that, go
    in KOS-MOS Maintenance Lab.  After that, go in the Hangar 2 to the south and
    then go back to the room with the Save Point.  From  here,  go  all  the way
    north and left when you see a  door.  You'll  find  yourself in the Catapult
    Deck. Make your way to the front side of the Cataput Deck and you'll receive
    another e-mail asking you to invest.  Reply  to it  by  choosing the "I Will
    Invest in Vector"  option because it continues the chain of e-mail that way.
    You should now have 28 e-mails.  Make your way back to the first floor.  You
    can now Rest in Cabin 2 to keep going with the game.
    
    It's time for some cut-scene now, go get some pop-corn!!! ^_^

    Once you regain control,  save  your  game  and head through the door to the
    north-east.  Go down the corridor and into the door to the right.  Blast the
    objects and you'll get an  Antidote,  a  Med  Kit  S , 2x Tech Upgrade A and
    2x Ether Upgrade A.  In  here,  DO NOT touch the red beam or you'll activate
    the alarm system.  Go  north  at  the  intersection and blast the objects to
    deactivate the first set of  red  beams.  Keep  going  to the right and head
    north to blast the objects  to  get  2x  Skill  Upgrade A and deactivate the
    second set of red beams.  Go back at the intersection and go north this time
    and you'll be able to open the doors by pressing the red switch.  Go all the
    way to the south and enter the first door  you  see.  Blast the box there to
    get 2x Frame Repair A.  Go back outside the room and head to the left. Enter
    the room and press the red  switch  to  open  a new path. Go back to the big
    door which was previously locked and go through it.
    
    In here,  blast  the  objects  just  south  a little to get a Cure-All and a
    Bio Sphere.  You can save in the room to the south if you need to.  Go  back
    north a little and proceed to the  right.  Blast the objects to the north to
    get 2x Skill Upgrade A and 2x Tech Upgrade A. In this corridor, DO NOT enter
    the doors before deactivating the alarm system.  Keep moving right and blast
    anything on your way.  Once  you  blasted  the second security system,  head
    through the second door in the corridor.  You'll  be  attacked right away by
    what seems to be a poor  little  U-TIC  Soldier.  It's  not exactly what you
    think.  This fight is a little  harder  than you think because once you kill
    the Soldier,  he'll get in a A.G.W.S. Once the fight is over,  blast the big
    thing in the upper right corner of the room to get 2x Skill Upgrade A and to
    reveal the Segment  Address  #11.  Unlock  the  Segment  Address  to  get  a
    Coat Ice.  Go back outside  of  the  room  and keep moving south.  Blast the
    object near the door to get 5x Ether Upgrade A.  Keep  moving  left  and  go
    through the door here.
    
    Get in the room to the left there  and  press  the  switch.  The door to the
    north now leads to the place with  the  Sav e Point.  Keep  moving south and
    blast the object to the right to get a Cure-All.  Go  down the stairs to the
    left and blast the console near  the first Mercurio to get a Frame Repair A.
    Do the same with the other  Mercurio  and  you'll get 2x Skill Upgrade A and
    2x Ether Upgrade S.  Don't  forget  to  grab  the  treasure chest for a Tech
    Upgrade Z. If you blast the last console, it will alarm the guards resulting
    in battle.  Make  your  way  back  upstairs and head south when you can.  Go
    through the door to the right and blast the box there to get the U-TIC Card.
    Back in the corridor,  keep moving south and into the door to the left. Grab
    the flashing card in the room  to  get the Card #3.  Go back in the corridor
    and make your way back in Corridor #5  (all  the  way north and right at the
    intersection).  You'll  see a door on the right side of the corridor.  Slide
    the U-TIC Card in the card reader and move through the door.  Grab the chest
    to get the Decoder #16.  Back  in the  corridor,  move north and all the way
    left through the door at the end.  Save  your  game now and heal Jr A.G.W.S.
    by using a Frame Repair.  Go  back  in the corridor and get in the room with
    the console you need to activate.  Slide  the  Card #3 in the slot there and
    then press the red switch. You can now proceed through the door just outside
    of there.  Just  operate  the  terminal in here and you'll activate the next
    scene which will lead you to the next boss fight.

    Start the fight by putting Jr. in his A.G.W.S.  The  strategy for this fight
    is really simple, Guard and then W-ACT.  That's all you need to know to kick
    Ambix's ass. You'll receive a Frame Repair Z or a B-MAX Circuit (rare) after
    the battle.

    When you regain control,  you'll be on the Elsa.  While trying to get out of
    the Bridge, you'll receive an e-mail with a new Tech for KOS-MOS.
    
    Before going any further in the game,  use  the  EVS/Save  Point there to go
    back on the Woglinde. We can now open a new Segment Address in there.  Don't
    worry about the ennemies there, they shouldn't be able to do you any damage.
    Just keep moving north past the door.  In this place,  choose the right path
    and move all the way to the north until you see the Segment Address.  Unlock
    it and grab the chest in it to get a Stim DX.  Just  move right a little and
    go in the room there. You can go back to the Elsa from that spot.
    
    Now back on the Elsa. In order to get outside, you need to find Ziggy first.
    He's in the vacant room Shion  talked  about when you were showing Ziggy and
    MOMO around (the room with the Save Point in the basement).  Go  get him and
    make all your way back near  the  Bridge and choose the left path this time.
    You can restore your HP/EP in the Dock Clinic.  You  can also see the weight
    and height of your character  in  the  lobby.  You  can buy new stuff in the
    Talk To Me shop.  Be sure to get them.  Be  sure to get Ziggy's MSP89SX here
    because this is the only time in the game  you'll  be  able  to.  If  you're
    running out of money,  use  the  EVS to get to Pleroma. You'll find soldiers
    giving you some money in there.  Just  spend  some  time boosting and you'll
    soon have enough money to buy all the equipment you need.  You  can sell all
    your Scrap Iron too to make yourself easy money.  It's just a Barter Item so
    you'll never use them in the game anyway. There is an EVS Plate just outside
    the shop,  so  use  it  if  you need some money or if you want to boost your
    characters.
    
    Now that you're already in the shop, go down the stairs to the south.  Blast
    everything  blocking  your  way  and  you'll  eventually  get to the Segment
    Address #2.  Make  your  way  back  outside  the shop and go south until you
    trigger a  small  cut  scene.  After  the  cut  scene,  DO  NOT  move  south
    immediately.  Go  back to the Dock Clinic first.  Move in the middle of this
    room and you'll receive another e-mail.  You  can now move back to where you
    were and keep moving south.  Once  you  regain  control,  you'll  receive an
    e-mail telling you that  the U-TIC Battleship map was added to your EVS.  Go
    back to the elevator and go up.  Go  talk to The Captain and choose to leave
    immediately.

    Tips : Use KOS-MOS in your party.
    
    Alright everyone,  the first real challenge starts right here.  This  is the
    first hard dungeon in the game  and  if  you  didn't buy the latest stuff in
    Dock Colony,  you might have a  hard  time  getting through this one.  Don't
    worry though, you should be able to get through this one anyway.
    
    First of all, save your game at the Save Point near you.  After that,  blast
    the things in your way to get an Antidote and a Nightwalker. Just follow the
    path and beat the ennemies to  boost  your  characters.  You're really gonna
    need it!!!  Be sure that you have Shion's Medica All Ether,  it will come in
    handy as you advance in the dungeon.  The  ennemies in here are giving you a
    good amount of EXP so it's  a  good thing not to avoid too many fight.  When
    you reach the first  intersection,  head  left  first and destroy the things
    there to get a Bio Sphere.  Go  right  this  time  into  the new area.  Keep
    following the path until you trigger a cut scene.  When  you regain control,
    head north first and blast the stuff here to get a Neuro  Stim.  Head  right
    this time and at the next intersection, move right again. Go up the hill and
    blast the big advertisement.  Grab the treasure chest to get a Coat Fire. Go
    back down the hill and move south  into  the  next area.  In here,  start by
    blasting the small door right in  front  of you at the beginning.  Go up the
    ladder there  and  make  your  way  across  the  half-broken  bridge.  Blast
    everything in there to get a Revive,  a  Cure-All  and  a Revive DX from the
    chest hidden to the north.  Make  your way back down the ladder and go north
    this time. At the end of  the  path,  move  the small elevator down and move
    south from there into the next area.  In  this area,  follow the path and go
    up the first set of stairs you see.  Blast the wreckage on the bridge and it
    will fall down one level.  Now,  put MOMO as your main character and look at
    the flashing spot where the 2  boxes  are.  You'll learn MOMO's Magic Caster
    Tech and the Star Wind Ether attack (first transformation).  You  can now go
    back down the set of stairs and across the bridge to fight an optional boss.
    
    --------------------
    Optional Boss
    Boss Name : Svarozic
    HP : 1500
    Type : Gnosis
    Weakness : Slash/Ice
    --------------------
    
    Start the fight by putting at least  one of your character in their A.G.W.S.
    KOS-MOS should attack using his  R-BLADE.  It's very effective on this boss.
    Use regular attack in your A.G.W.S. or guard one turn to use their W-ACT the
    next turn.  This  boss isn't particularly difficult but he can deal a lot of
    damage to Shion or MOMO.  You'll  receive  either  a  Tech  Upgrade  S  or a
    Tech Upgrade Z (rare) after the fight.
    
    Now grab the chest to get a Tuned Circuit.  Make  your  way  back across the
    bridge and follow the path just below the stairs. Go up the 2 sets of stairs
    and blast everything in your way. You'll get an Ether Pack S and a Med Kit S
    on your way. Now keep going until you reach the next area.  In here,  follow
    the path until you reach the Save Point.  Save  your progress,  buy anything
    you need and go into the next area.  Blast  the  2 big things in your way to
    get a Frame Repair A and 2x Skill Upgrade A . Don't  you  think  it's been a
    while since we last had a little boss fight. Well here it comes!!!
    
    -----------------------
    Boss Name : Perun
    HP : 1500
    Type : Gnosis
    Weakness : Slash/Spirit
    -----------------------
    
    This is an easy fight. Just put chaos, KOS-MOS and Shion/MOMO in your party.
    Have chaos  and  KOS-MOS  guard  on  their  first  turn  and  get your other
    character in his A.G.W.S.  Just  attack  using KOS-MOS's R-BLADE and R-DRILL
    and chaos attack with is Angel Wing.  If you want a really easy fight,  have
    your A.G.W.S. equipped with 2 Axes, guard and then W-ACT.  You'll be able to
    deal over 1000+ of damage by doing so.  Sweet!!!  After  the  fight,  you'll
    receive an Ether Upgrade S or an Ether Upgrade Z (rare).
    
    After the fight, go up the stairs and into the place with the broken window.
    You'll have to fight  the  ennemy  in  the  way  in order to go any further.
    You'll get the Decoder 15 after the fight. Keep going in the room and you'll
    see the Flower Seed on the table. Go back in the corridor and go through the
    door to the north.  Go  all  the  way around and into the door to the south.
    Here, take the small elevator down and go through  the  door.  You'll have a
    lot of fun in this place.  It is filled with big boxes to blast and a lot of
    them have items inside.  Start  by  killing  the 2 Unicorns in here and then
    collect all the items from the destructible objects.  Here  is  the  list of
    what you'll get from all  these  objects :  Bio Sphere,  8x Skill Upgrade A,
    2x Tech Upgrade A, 800G, Med Kit MAX, 2x Cure-All, Med Kit DX, Ether Pack S,
    2x Ether Upgrade A.  In the top right corner,  you'll  also find the Segment
    Address #13.  Go back outside and up the elevator.  Now,  you  need  to head
    south.
    
    Go down the slope to the right and keep going right from that spot.  Destroy
    the object in the corner to get a Revive. Keep moving to the left and you'll
    eventually come near another destructible  object with a Clock Shield in it.
    Keep going and go left at the first intersection you  see.  Fight  the  boss
    there.
    
    ---------------------
    Optional Boss
    Boss Name : Stribog
    HP : 1500
    Type : Gnosis
    Weakness : Slash/Fire
    ---------------------
    
    Once again, to make this fight easy,  get in your A.G.W.S. and use the W-ACT
    if you're equipped with 2 Axes. You can also use KOS-MOS R-BLADE and R-DRILL
    and have chaos heal the party or  attack.  Heaven's Wrath works well on that
    boss. After the fight, you'll get a Skill Upgrade S/Skill Upgrade Z (rare).
    
    After the fight, grab the chest and you'll get the Decoder #9.  Go  back  at
    the intersection and move north this time. At the next intersection, move to
    the left once again.  Blast  the  door  there  and  grab  the chest to get a
    Rejuvenator.  Come  back at the intersection and blast the big rocks to your
    right.  You'll obtain 500G and a Cure-All from the rocks.  Move to the north
    you'll activate another cut scene.  After the cut scene, go through the door
    to the north. Follow the path in here.  In the middle of the room, there are
    3 destructible objects,  blast them and you'll get a Revive.  Head left from
    that spot and destroy the  thing  there.  You'll  receive 2x Frame Repair A.
    Keep going the same way and blast the pirate there. Open the chest to get an
    Ether Pack MAX. Go back in the middle of the room and go right this time. Go
    through the door there and you'll be in another area.
    
    FINALLY!!!  A save point awaits you in this room.  You can save your game if
    you want and after that,  destroy  the  2  yellow things on both side of the
    elevator.  Once this is done,  take the door to the left.  Move to the right
    side of the room and grab the  Magical  Hat  in the first cubicle.  Now,  go
    north and up the stairs to your right. Blast the yellow thing and then press
    the red switch.  Go back down and  head to the left side of the room.  Blast
    the flower pot to get a Frame Repair Z and then  head  upstairs.  Blast  the
    yellow thing once again and then go up the ladder. Blast the 2 yellow things
    on both side of the elevator and then it will be activated.  Blast  the blue
    thing to the right and go through the door. Unlock the Segment Address there
    and grab the chest to get the Robot Part Left Arm.  Make  your way back down
    in the room with the Save Point.  This is your last opportunity to save your
    game so you better do so. When you're ready, go down the elevator.
    
    In here, go to the left  and  grab  the  Veil  under  the round thing on the
    ground.  All that's left to do is  to  go down the elevator to the south and
    then proceed through the door. Don't forger to heal your characters, a tough
    battle is coming up next.

    Note : Use Shion, KOS-MOS and chaos  for  this  fight.  Boost your rare item
           acquisition rate for this fight.
    
    Alright everyone,  this is a tough one.  Use chaos and KOS-MOS to kill the 2
    Oudogogues first.  Shion  will  probably  have  to heal every turn.  Use her
    Medica All to do so.  The  Oudogogue's Hell Flash will hit your entire party
    by 100 or so of damage.  Have  chaos  attack  with  his  Heaven's  Wrath and
    KOS-MOS with her R-DRILL.  Once  the  2  Oudogogues are down,  get Shion and
    chaos in their A.G.W.S. and use their W-ACT every time you can.  KOS-MOS use
    the same attack as for the  Oudogogues  and heals herself when she needs to.
    Your W-ACT should deal aroud 750 of  damage and more than 1000 when you do a
    critical.  Use  it  often  and the fight will be over in no time.  After the
    fight,  you'll  receive  a  Frame Repair A/Frame Repair Z  (rare)  from  the
    Oudogogues and a Silver Crown/Commander's Crest (rare) from the Gargoyle.
    
    Note : This is the only time in the  game where you will be able to get the
           Commander's Crest.
    
    Once the fight is over... Yeah, you guessed it, it's pop corn time!!! ^_^

    Once you regain control,  move  toward  Allen  and  you'll receive an e-mail
    saying that a new map was added to the EVS. Go through the door upstairs and
    keep moving left until you find  yourself in an area with 2 persons.  You'll
    receive another e-mail in this place.  Well,  we have to find MOMO but we'll
    explore the Durandal a little more before doing so.  The  Durandal is a very
    big ship divided in 6 areas : Residential Area,  Bridge,  Hangar, Park, Dock
    and the Isolation Area.  You  can explore all you want but I'll only mention
    where to go if you want the items.  First of all, use the train to go to the
    Residential Area. Head left and go through the door.  Follow the path and at
    the first intersection,  choose  the left path and enter the door at the end
    of it.  You can rest in this room if your energy is low. Right now, there is
    a robot blocking the way so you can't blast the second door.  Go back to the
    intersection and move north this time. Blast everything on the right side of
    the corridor to get 2x Booster Pack.  At  the  next  intersection,  take the
    right path and head through the door there. You can save your game there and
    there is also the Casino Passport up the stairs to the right.  Once you have
    the Casino Passport,  go  back  in  the corridor and head all the way to the
    left until you come in front of a door.  In this room, blast the 2 doors and
    you'll  receive  2x  Ether  Upgrade  A  and  a  Med  Kit  S.  Go back at the
    intersection and move north this time.  Blast everything in the corridor and
    you'll get a Med Kit DX.  Move all the way north and turn left.  Blast the 3
    things in there and you'll  receive  2x Ether Upgrade A and an Ether Pack S.
    Now move all the way to the right and into the door. In this room, blast the
    doors to the left of the room to  get another Med Kit DX.  You'll  also  see
    that there is a silver plate in the room,  so  buy  the latest equipment for
    your characters.  If you're running out of money,  you can either go back to
    Pleroma and fight more  soldiers  or  you  can play Poker or Slot Machine by
    using your newly  acquired  Casino  Passport (see mini-game section for more
    info).  Once you bought everything you needed, go back to the train and head
    for the Hangar area.
    
    In here,  go  through  the  door  to  the  right side of the room and you'll
    receive an e-mail asking you to  invest  in  another  company.  You'll  need
    6000 G if you want to invest this time. Choose to invest in Alkamia and then
    head for the Park area. Go up the slope and through the door to the north to
    activate a short cut scene.  Once you have control of Shion again, head back
    outside the Park and  you'll  receive  the reply to your investment you just
    made.  Once you go down the small escalator there,  you'll receive an e-mail
    concerning the Hacker.  Don't  forget  to  download  the  attachment to this
    e-mail. Now, head for the Residential Area and you'll receive another e-mail
    as you go to the left.  Head through the door and in this place,  go left at
    the first intersection and go into Shion's room. Rest in your bed and you'll
    activate yet another cut scene.  You now need to head for the Dock.  As  you
    head right,  you'll  receive  an e-mail with an optional weapon for KOS-MOS.
    You can now go to the Dock. Talk to Jr. here and you'll now have him in your
    party. If you speak to the people in the Durandal while Jr. is the on-screen
    character, they will say different things.  A new optional boss also becomes
    available now that you have Jr. in your party but he's most likely a lot too
    powerful for you now,  so  we'll  just come back here later in the game.  Go
    to the right now and get in the small shuttle to activate another cut scene.
    
    Note : look at the beautiful swimsuit Allen's wearing, it's hilarious!!!

    the hacker's sister. The answer to the riddle is The Durandal. Just send the
    reply and then go through the door to the right.  Once outside, head for the
    A.G.W.S. Part Shop (south building).  Go  right  from here and play the game
    video game there. You'll have to answer all 5 questions correctly to get the
    prize.
    
    Question 1 : TALK TO ME
    Question 2 : Professor
    Question 3 : Smelly-looking purple T-shirt
    Question 4 : Holgar
    Question 5 : Luty
    
    You'll receive the PM Card C.
    
    Now go to the left and talk to the girl at the A.G.W.S. shop. Buy the newest
    Frames and Generators for your  A.G.W.S.  as  well as the new equipments and
    then go left and down the stairs.  After you talked with the Professor, exit
    the lab and come back immediately in it.  If  you  unlocked  all the Segment
    Address so far you'll activate another short scene.  Blast  all  the junk in
    the lab and then talk to Professor once again.  He'll made the first part of
    his IN-VIN-CIBLE Robot.  You'll also receive your first "super weapon" which
    is actually an Ether attack (Throni Blade).  Now,  get  out  of the A.G.W.S.
    Part Shop and go to City Sector 26 & 27 (middle).  Talk to the person to the
    far left side of the bar and  she'll  tell  you that she lost her Engagement
    Ring on Gaignun's Private Beach.  For  now,  just go outside and go into the
    hotel to the left.  Buy  anything  you  need there and Save your game if you
    want to.  Get  out  of  the Hotel and go left into the next area.  Go up the
    first set of stairs there and go through the door there (East 6).  Blast the
    car to get an Escape Pack.  Blast  the  big grey box in the top right corner
    to get a Tech Upgrade A.  Blast  the second one but DON'T blast the pink bug
    there.  If you talked to Tom in the Dock Colony,  Pink Bug will tell you the
    secret you want.  Choose  Great  Secret  and  he'll  tell you that there's a
    Decoder on the Durandal in the Park Area under a tree.  He'll  also  take  a
    picture of you and send it to you later by e-mail.  Go  through  the door to
    the left upstairs and keep moving until you reach another house.  Blast  the
    3 armories to get 2x Ether Upgrade S,  1200 G  and  to  unveil  the  Segment
    Address #3.  Go  south  a little and look in the dryer to get the PM Card B.
    Go up the stairs  near  the  dryer  and look at the costume there and you'll
    get the Fish Detector.  Now,  exit the City Sector 26 & 27 using the archway
    to the right. Just before leaving, you'll receive an e-mail. Now let's go to
    the beach.
    
    Once you're there,  go in the water and the Fish Detector will be activated.
    You're now able to catch the fishes there.  Keep catching the fish until you
    grab the one giving you the Engagement Ring.  You can also get a Med Kit and
    a Speed Stim from the fishes.  Go  back to City Sector 26 & 27 and go in the
    Ironman bar.  Speak  to  the  person who lost her Engagement Ring and she'll
    give you the Decoder 8.  You  can  now go sleep at the hotel.  Once  this is
    done, exit the City Sector 26 & 27 and go to the Launch Pad (east building).
    Before doing the next section,  you should make yourself at least 50 000G if
    you want to buy a new A.G.W.S..  Use the shuttle to go back on the Durandal.
    From here, take the train and go to the Park Area. If you talked to Pink Bug
    in the City Sector 26 & 27, the Decoder #1 should be in the park.  Just look
    for it on the right side of the park.  You  should  see  something flashing.
    Once this is done,  take  the  train  once again and head for the dock area.
    Once you arrived at the Docks, talk to Captain Matthews and tell him that to
    go back at the Dock Colony. Head for the Dock Clinic and talk to the girl in
    front of the Flower Pot.  Shion will give her the Flower Seed you got in the
    Cathedral Ship.  Head  for the Talk To Me shop now and you'll be able to buy
    your first optional A.G.W.S.!!!  Once  this  is done,  you can return to the
    Durandal.  You  should  buy some new stuff for your newly acquired A.G.W.S..
    Once everything is done, head for the Docks and go in the Elsa. Just talk to
    Allen and you'll activate another cut scene.

    Alright,  once you regain control,  you'll have Jr.,  Ziggy and MOMO in your
    party.  Make  your  way  to  the  right  but  be careful not to go under the
    spotlights since it will actvite a battle.  This  is  the  best place in the
    game to make yourself a  lot  of  T.Points,  so  if  you  want to boost your
    character's stats, it's a good time to do it. You'll also get some money and
    a good amount of EXP. after each fight.  As  soon  as  you  can,  go south a
    and you'll see a chest with a Coat-Sword in it.  Blast the object just north
    of you and keep moving right.  At the intersection, move north and blast the
    3 destructible objects there to get a Ruby Helmet,  5x Bio Sphere and 5x Med
    Kit DX. You can now move to the south. Once you go through the door, another
    cut scene will be activated.  Once you regain control,  you'll be with Shion
    and chaos.  Go to the left from where you start and blast the thing there to
    get a Defense Shield.  Go  to  the  opposite side and blast the destructible
    object behind the pine tree to get a Frame Repair Z.  Once this is done, you
    can head north through the door.
    
    In this place,  don't  forget  to save your game before going any further in
    the game.  Follow  the path and blast the little statue to get a Blade Soul,
    5x Ether Pack S,  3x Bio Sphere,  a Rejuvenator and 5x Revive.  One  of  the
    statue is a Gnosis, but he's easy.  Just keep using Beam and Spirit attacks.
    Keep following the path and proceed south.  In  this  place,  you'll have to
    fight some Bugbears and some Kobolds too.  The Kobolds can be very dangerous
    enemies, so be careful whenever you encounter them. The fights in this place
    cannot be avoided,  so  you  better make your party ready after each fights.
    Just follow the path in here and fight the enemy on the way.  You'll  see  a
    small alcove on your way with a Kobold guarding a chest.  Fight  it and grab
    the chest to get the PM Card E.  Just  come back in the path and keep moving
    until you see a manhole. DO NOT go in this  one  yet.  Keep  moving  left  a
    little and talk to the women there  if  you  want  to  fight.  This enemy is
    special because you need to use Recovery items or Recovery Ether to hurt it.
    After that,  blast  the  object just north of you to open a new manhole.  Go
    down this one first. Just move north and then go up the stairs there. Unlock
    door by pressing the red  switch.  Go  down  the stairs and follow the path.
    Fight the enemy  there  and  then  blast  the object behind it to reveal the
    Segment Address #5.  Unlock the door and grab the Double Buster in it. Fight
    the Troll again and then go up the stairs just behind  it.  Unlock  the door
    there and go through it.  Head for the door to the right and blast the panel
    there to get a Guard Cleaner.  Make  your  way  back in the streets with the
    manhole and go down the other one.  In  here,  head across the bridge to the
    south and blast the object to the left to get 5x Ether Pack S. Make your way
    back across the bridge and follow the path. Press the switch to the right of
    the enemy to release a door lock. Head across the bridge just south and move
    to the right.  Fight  the  Larva Doll on the other side of the bridge and go
    down the stairs at the end of the corridor  and go through the door.  You'll
    be back with Jr.'s party.
    
    From here, go to the left and through the door there. Blast the object there
    to get a Rejuvenator.  Make your way back in the streets and go south. Enter
    the door to the left at the end of the road.  You'll  now  be in the subway.
    Make your way through all the junk and save your game.  Go  up  a little and
    to the right through all the junk until you reach a door.  Go  left  of  the
    door  and blast the junk there to get 2x Bio Sphere.  Move  to  the  left  a
    little and blast the window.  Go  back right and enter the door. Move to the
    left in there and you'll see  the Segment Address #15.  Unlock  the  Segment
    Address to get an Angel Ring. Make your way back through the junk and at the
    intersection, choose the path north first.  In this room, blast the bench to
    the north to get a Veil. Move to the left and go down the small stairs. Move
    to the right and blast the red box there to get 5x Neuro Stim. Make your way
    back where the Save Point was and choose the south path this  time.  If  you
    blast the bench in front of you,  you'll have to fight a group of 4 Kobolds.
    Move to the left and blast the red box  in the way to get 2x Frame Repair A.
    Go down the stairs and move to the left. Fight the Larva Doll there and keep
    moving to the left until you can  go  down  on  the  other  side.  Blast the
    vending machine and grab the chest to get a Red Topaz. Make your way back on
    the other side and keep moving to the right. Move to the right until you can
    enter one of the wagon.  Follow  the path to the right and go up once you're
    outside the wagon.  Climb  the ladder and move to the left.  Fight the Larva
    Doll and blast the red thing at the end to make it fall.  Go  back  down the
    ladder and into the wagon.  Make  your  way back to where you enter the room
    and grab the chest that  wasn't  available  before blasting the thing on the
    second floor. You'll get a Venom Block from the chest. Make your way back in
    the wagon and blast the door to the left to get an Ether Pack  S.  Move  all
    the way to the left and go down the small platform to the right. Move to the
    north and into the sewer.
    
    Follow  the  path  in  here  and  destroy  the  panel when you see it to get
    4x Frame Repair A. Go up the small set of stairs and climb the small ladder.
    Open the door and you'll get the Decoder #12 from the chest.  Go  back  down
    the ladder and the small steps and head to the right.  Climb  the big ladder
    there. After the cut scene, you'll regain control of Shion's party.
    
    Save your game before going any further.  Follow  the path until you reach a
    rock that you can blast.  Blast  it and go south exactly where the rock was.
    When you can't go south anymore,  move  to  the  right a little and grab the
    chest there to get the PM Card D. Make your way back on the path and move to
    the right.  In this area,  you'll see a small rabbit that looks like the big
    statue you saw in the park. Anyway, just follow the path and when you arrive
    at an intersection, choose the path to the left. Blast the small tree at the
    end of it and then blast the rock.  Go into the newly opened path and go all
    the way around the rock.  Blast  the rock with a treasure chest on it to get
    the Blue Topaz.  Make  your way back at the intersection and go to the south
    this time.  Just  follow the path into the next area.  Go  up  the slope and
    fight the Troll there.  After the fight,  blast  the tree and grab the Ether
    Pack S. Now, head across the bridge and you'll see the rabbit once again. At
    the intersection, go to the left. Move all the way to the left and blast the
    wood thing there to form a bridge.  Head  across  the  bridge  and  into the
    cavern. In this area, move south and then right first.  Blast the tree there
    and you'll get 2x Frame Repair Z. Make your way back at the intersection and
    move north this time. Blast the 4 giant carrots to get 4x S. Carrot Juice.
    
    Note : The Carrots always come back but you can't hold more than 4 of them.
    
    Go back in the cavern.  Go  back at the intersection but go south this time.
    Place the S. Carrot Juice on the  tree tronk and the rabbit will come out of
    the house.  To  successfully do this mini-quest,  you must get into Bunnie's
    house before he does.  The trick is, his real face is in his back.  So, when
    he's facing you,  he can't see you since his eyes are behind his head.  Once
    this is done, grab the chest in the house to get the Decoder #3. If you miss
    some S. Carrot Juice, you can always go back to the place where you got them
    the first time. Go back at the intersection and move north this time. Go all
    the way to the end of the  path and you'll see Jr. and his group once you're
    there.
    
    Now, we have to make a long trip before going anywhere else.  We  need to go
    all the way back to the beginning of the game,  in  the park where you first
    have the control of Shion and chaos.  To do so, head all the way to the left
    and then just follow the path you used to get out of the forest. Once you're
    out of the forest, you need to make it across the sewer.  Once  outside  the
    sewer, you'll be in the street.  Use the short cut here. Head left and go in
    the manhole.  You'll  find yourself in the park now.  Head all the way south
    and you'll see a dome in the park. Put MOMO or Jr. as the lead character and
    look inside the dome to get the PM Card A.  Now, yes, you got it, we need to
    go all the way back to where the 2 groups met.  Go through the sewer and the
    forest and you're there.  When you arrive at the right place,  head  to  the
    right and go into the church to activate the next cut scene.  After  the cut
    scene,  DO NOT go through the door immediately.  Talk to Febronia and she'll
    restore your HP and EP.  Now save your game and get your character ready for
    one of the hardest boss fight in the game. Enter the door to the north.
    
    Preparation : Be sure to have your A.G.W.S. equipped with weapons having the
                  W-ACT properties.  Equip  them  with  Guard Cleaners and Guard
                  Recovery.  If  you  can't,  give  them  AP Shields and Cockpit
                  Guards.  Shion  and Jr. should definitely have Shock Blade and
                  Prelude to Battle in their hi-speed slots. Equip everyone with
                  something preventing Confusion (Blade Soul) if possible. Equip
                  one of your character  with  something boosting your Rare Item
                  acquisition rate or put MOMO  in your party if she has her own
                  A.G.W.S. and if she's strong enough.
    
    ----------------------
    Boss Name : Tiamat
    HP : 6400
    Type : Gnosis
    Weakness : Beam/Pierce
    ----------------------
    
    Alright everyone,  you  better  be ready for a hard fight there.  Your party
    won't be able to take Tiamat's attacks for a long time.  So,  you better get
    in your A.G.W.S. as soon as the battle begins.  His  Ruined  Earth  will hit
    over 250 of damage to everyone in your party!!!  Just killing the boss isn't
    hard enough, you have to deliver 2 finishing blow in this fight. One must be
    delivered by Jr. and the other one by Shion.  By  the way,  they can't do it
    while they're in their A.G.W.S.. So, you'll have to get out of your A.G.W.S.
    in order to finish him off.  Guard  on  your first turn in your A.G.W.S. and
    then unleash everyone's W-ACT.  That way, you'll be able to deal 700+ damage
    to the boss.  Repeat until the boss gets under 1000 HP.  When  he does,  get
    Shion or Jr. out of his A.G.W.S.  and  deliver  the  finishing blow with the
    character.  If  you  accidently  get  the  boss's  HP  to  0 with your other
    character or while you're in our A.G.W.S.,  the  boss  will  heal himself by
    1500 HP. Repeat the other steps and deliver the other finishing blow and the
    fight will be over.  Once the fight is over,  you'll  either receive a B-MAX
    Circuit or a Revenge Power (rare).
    
    After the fight,  you'll  see another cut scene and then,  you'll be back on
    the Durandal.

    Matthews on the bridge.  Go  back  to  the  Dock Colony.  Go inside the Dock
    Clinic and talk to Luty.  You'll  see  that the plant you gave to her grew a

    to Allen in the Ironman bar.  Go all the way to the left into the next area.
    Keep going left and go up the stairs near the exit.  Go  inside the cleaners
    and unlock the Segment Address there to get the Robot Part  Right  Leg.  Get
    out of the City Sector 26 & 27 and go to the A.G.W.S. Parts Shop. Go talk to
    the Professor in the  Robot  Academy  and  you'll get your next "summon" for
    Shion.  You'll also meet Assistant Scott who is helping the Professor in his
    research.  Once you received the Dominion Tank, head back to the City Sector
    26 & 27.  Just a little to the left of the Ironman Bar,  there  is  a crank.
    Turn it and then talk to Allen in the Ironman Bar. Once you talked to him, a
    cut scene will be activated and the Kukai Foundation will be attacked by the
    Gnosis.  Head  for  the  Docks immediately and take the shuttle to the Kukai
    Foundation. Now, head for the City Sector 26 & 27.
    
    In this place,  the  Mayor  can  sell you some items if you need them and he
    also tells you how many people need to be rescued.  First of all,  head into
    the Ironman Bar. Defeat the Gnosis in here and rescue the man in here.  Now,
    head inside the Our Treasure Hotel. Go behind the counter and grab the chest
    to get a Swimsuit. Now, go upstairs and head right. Blast the boxes to get a
    Battle Gear and climb the ladder.  Look  at  the photo and remember the date
    that is inscribed on it. Blast the box near the bed to get a Tech Upgrade S.
    Go up the small set of stairs south of the room.  Once  outside,  go all the
    way to the right and blast the thing there to unveil the Segment Address #1.
    Decode the door and grab the Robot Part Head in it.  Head  to  the  left and
    you'll be back inside the inn.  Head  all the way to the right this time and
    press the switch.  This will activate the elevator in the Ironman Bar.  Make
    your way back downstairs  and  fight the Gnosis in front of the sealed door.
    After the fight, unlock the door. The P.I.N. is the date on the photo. Enter
    1028 and the door will be unlocked.  Open  the door and the little girl will
    be saved!!!  Head  outside  and  go back in the Ironman Bar.  Go  where  the
    elevator previously was and blast the big boxes. Grab the Tech Upgrade S and
    save the man there.  Go  right  behind  the counter and grab the Wooden Idol
    inside the chest.  Go back in the hotel,  go to the second floor and then go
    in the room to the left. Blast the big thing there to get an Ether Upgrade S
    from it. Here you have a choice to make : continue with the level,  or fight
    a REALLY hard optional boss.  You're  probably not strong enough yet to take
    on this one, so we'll come back here later to fight it. If you want to fight
    it anyway,  head to the right on top of the overhang and into the door.  Put
    MOMO as your lead character to face Mintia.
    
    Anyway, head to the very top of the Hotel and head to the left.  Fall  where
    the dumpster is and blast the 2 things there.  You'll get 1000 G from one of
    them and you'll save another person from the other one.  You  should  have 9
    left to rescue now.  Head to the left this time into the next area. In here,
    fight the Gnosis near the statue. After the fight, blast the statue and save
    the man.  Head all the way to the left and defeat the Wyrms.  If they escape
    before you defeat them, they won't be added to your U.M.N. databank and they
    don't reappear like the other enemies.  Anyway,  all the way to the left and
    go up the stairs into the Lavare Cleaners.  Go up and defeat the Larva Doll.
    Head south in the other room and talk to the women there.  7  more  to go!!!
    Blast the counter to the  right  side  for 2x Ether Upgrade S and then go up
    the ladder. Go all the way to the right and blast the door at the end of it.
    Go all the way back down the ladder into the Lavare Cleaners.  Head  in  the
    room to the north, go upstairs and exit through the door to the south.  Move
    right a little and then south into the door. In this room, move to the south
    a little and blast the bookshelf to get a Skill Upgrade S.  Exit through the
    door in the southwestern corner.  Go  around the corner and through the door
    there. Go all the way around the U-shaped corridor and exit through the door
    at the end of it.  Go  down  the  t-shaped  ramp  to your left and press the
    switch there.  Go back up the ladder and enter the middle door.  Defeat  the
    Bugbear in the way and talk to the man after the fight.  5 more to go now!!!
    Blast the wooden things in the way to get 1000 G and then go down the slope.
    Move to the right a little and climb the ladder all the way to the top. Move
    to the right and enter the door there. Talk to King and he'll go away.  Only
    4 more to go!!!  Move  left a little and you'll see someone in danger there.
    
    Exit through the southern door,  go  down the stairs outside and go into the
    door there.  Blast  the  car  in  here  to get a Rune Chrystal and fight the
    Gnosis.  Talk to Tony,  but he won't leave without his loved one.  Blast the
    container behind Tony and talk to Mina there. 2 more people are saved, which
    leaves us with 2 more to rescue.  Leave  the area,  go up the stairs to your
    right and go into the room in front of you.  Head to the left and defeat the
    Larva Doll there.  Press  the switch to your right to open a secret passage.
    Go in the secret passage and fight the Larva Doll near the  cat.  After  the
    fight, talk to the cat and make your way back in East 6.  Go where the Larva
    Doll is and exit through the door to the left. This is where the last rescue
    is!!!  Go down the stairs and blast the 2 armories to get a Cure-All.  Fight
    the Larva Doll and then, talk to the girl.  You rescued everyone!!!  Go back
    to the first district now and go in the Our Treasure hotel. I forgot to tell
    you to get something in here,  but  since  we  have  to save the game before
    facing the next boss, we'll do this now. Go upstairs and climb the ladder in
    the room to the right. Exit through the door the south.  Move all the way to
    the left and you'll see a door there.  DON'T stop moving left or you'll miss
    it.  Follow  the path there and grab the chest to get the Decoder #13.  Make
    your way back to the hotel and save your game  on  the  first  floor.  Don't
    forget to heal your characters  because  a boss fight is coming really soon.
    When you're all ready, head to the right side and as you try to exit, a boss
    will appear.
    
    Note : Be sure to have a healer in your party and have some Slash and Spirit
           attacks.  I suggest you to use MOMO,  Jr. and KOS-MOS for this fight.
           Transfer Shion's Medica All  to  MOMO, boost Jr.'s Mystic Norturne as
           well as KOS-MOS R-BLADE and the fight shouldn't be a problem.
    
    -----------------------
    Boss name : Gigas
    HP : 2800
    Type : Gnosis
    Weakness : Slash/Spirit
    -----------------------
    
    Start the fight by using MOMO's transformation so that she'll be able to use
    her Magic Caster to steal the Rare Item.  On his first turn,  Gigas will use
    Power Distribution, which will cause him to divide himself in 2. Use KOS-MOS
    R-BLADE to deal a good amount of damage  to the enemy to the right while Jr.
    use Mystic Norturne or Moonlit Serenade on the one to the left.  Be careful,
    the 2 enemies have really powerful attack that can deal over 300 damage. The
    one on the right use Frostbite and the one to the left use Wave Blast. After
    the fight, you'll receive a Spirit or a Soul (rare).
    
    Just exit by the door to the right and head for the A.G.W.S. Part  Shop.  Go
    talk to the Professor and you'll be able to get the next "summon" for Shion.
    You're now able to perform the Seraphim Bird during battle!!!  Now, head for
    the Launch Pad and you'll  activate  another  cut  scene.  Once  you  regain
    control,  go  back  to  the  Kukai Foundation and you'll see that MOMO isn't
    there anymore. Go back on the Durandal and head for the Residential Area. Go
    to the left into the next room and another cut scene will be activated.
    
    Once again, go get some pop-corn,  you'll  be sitting in front of the TV for
    the next 30 minutes or so.
    
    After the cut scene, you're off to the Song Of Nephilim!!!

    Before Going To The Song Of Nephilim :
    ------------------------------------
    
    Exit the Bridge and you'll receive  an  e-mail giving you 2 new Tech Attacks
    for KOS-MOS.  Head  towards  the  train  and you'll receive a new weapon for
    KOS-MOS as well!!!  You should now have 47 e-mails in your list.  Now,  it's
    time for some shopping.  The  Silver  Plate  in the Residential area doesn't
    any new stuff for your  character  so  take the train to the Dock and get on
    the Elsa. Use the Silver Plate  next to the EVS/Save Point to buy the latest
    equipment for your characters.  You  should  also buy a couple of Med Kit DX
    before heading to the next dungeon.  Now,  head for the A.G.W.S. Shop on the
    Elsa (B2 Floor) and buy the latest stuff for your A.G.W.S. there.  If you're
    running short of money,  play Poker or Slots.  Once you bought all the stuff
    on the Elsa,  go  to  the  bridge and ask Captain Matthew to take you to the
    Dock Colony.  Once  you're  there,  go  talk  to the little girl in the Dock
    Clinic.  If  you did as I said in the previous part of the walkthrough,  the
    flower should have bloomed now.  You'll  see  that  Luty  is now talking and
    you'll receive a Tech Upgrade Z.  Now, go to the Talk To Me shop next to the
    Dock Clinic.  You can buy a new A.G.W.S. now!!!  Buy everything you need and
    you can go back to the Durandal after that.  Once you're on the Durandal, go
    back inside the Elsa and use the EVS to go back to the Cathedral Ship.  Keep
    moving until you arrive at the Warehouse.  In  here,  go down the small lift
    and go in the room with the 2 Unicorns.  You  should see the Segment Address
    #13 in this room. Unlock it and you'll get a Samurai Heart from it.  Now, go
    back to the nearest Exit EVS Point  (just before entering the Warehouse) and
    use it to go back to the Elsa.  Once  you're  back  on  the  Elsa go talk to
    Captain Matthews and ask him to take you to the Song Of Nephilim.
    
    In the Song Of Nephilim :
    -----------------------
    
    Go save your game and go outside into the Song Of Nephilim.  After  the  cut
    scene, keep moving to the left until you arrive in the first tower. Alright,
    the Song Of Nephilim is divided in 3 towers with different puzzles. In order
    to solve the first one,  you  need  to blast the boxes and then activate the
    switch in the middle of the platform.  Simple, not really.  Depending on the
    number of boxes you blast,  you'll  arrive at different levels in the tower.
    The boxes that are  double-tall  or  triple-wide count as the number of cube
    that can fit in them.
    
    Example : if you want to blast 9 boxes,  blast  3 double-tall or double-wide
              boxes and blast 3 single boxes.
    
     --------------------
    |  Level  |  Shoots  |
     --------------------
    |    7    | 18 Boxes |
    |    6    | 15 Boxes |
    |    5    | 12 Boxes |
    |    4    | 9 Boxes  |
    |    3    | 6 Boxes  |
    |    2    | 3 Boxes  |
     --------------------
    
    First of all, blast 6 boxes, activate the elevator and go all the way to the
    left.  Blast the big box to get a Med Kit DX and then enter the door to your
    left.  Press  the  switch  to the north and one the bridge taking you to the
    second tower will be activated. Head back inside the Song and go all the way
    around it to go back to the first floor.  Back on the first floor,  blast 12
    boxes and go up the elevator.  All the way to the left, blast the big box to
    reveal a treasure chest with the Decoder #14 in it.  Go  back  down  to  the
    first floor. This time, blast 15 boxes to get to the sixth floor.  Go to the
    left and you'll see 2 doors. DON'T enter them yet. Go all the way to the end
    left and blast the big box there to get a Neo Armor Alpha.  You can now head
    for the second tower by using the door to the north.
    
    Save your game and from where you arrived, take the first door to the right.
    At first, there doesn't seem to be anything in there,  but  put  MOMO as the
    on-screen character and you'll see something flashing. You'll then learn the
    Tech MOMO's Kiss and the Ether Starlight.  Exit this room and enter the door
    to the north. Blast the red cylinder to the right to get a Cross. Go back to
    the main room and enter the door to your left.  Go  down  the  ladder to the
    right and climb the one  to  the  right.  Blast  the  red  cylinder to get a
    Soldier's Honor.  Go  back  down the ladder and go all the way to the right.
    Go down the ladder there  and  then  move to the left but DO NOT go down the
    first ladder.  Climb  the  second one instead and go through the door to the
    south.  Blast the big red containers there to get a Defibrillator Vest and a
    Neo Armor Beta. You'll have to fight a sub-boss here too.
    
    -------------------------------
    Sub-Boss Name : Athra 26 Series
    HP : 3000
    Type : Mech
    Weakness : None
    -------------------------------
    
    Get in your A.G.W.S. on your first turn.  Just  use Guard and then W-ACT and
    you shouldn't have any problem with this sub-boss.  After the fight,  you'll
    receive a Revive DX and the Decoder #2.
    
    Blast the last container to  the  right  to  reveil the Segment Address #12.
    Unlock it to get the W Hammer Rod from it.  Exit  this place and go down the
    ladder.  Move  to  the right a little and climb down the other ladder there.
    Move a little to the right and enter the door to the south. Press the button
    in here to activate the elevator.  Go  back  ouside,  move  to the right and
    enter the door.  Blast the big thing in here and go back outside. Go all the
    way to the left and enter the door there.  Blast  the other thing and a boss
    will appear.
    
    ----------------
    Name : Rianon SE
    HP : 5600
    Type : 
    Weakness : Fire
    ----------------
    
    Start the fight by putting MOMO in her Starwind transformation and steal the
    Shield Armor on her next turn.  DO  NOT  bring your A.G.W.S. in this battle.
    The boss has a drain attack that will  drain over 1000 HP from your A.G.W.S.
    but only 300-400 from your characters.  Be  sure  to  have Jr. in your party
    with Storm Waltz in his High-Speed slot and chaos with his Lunar Seal or his
    Angel Blow in his High-Speed Slot.  If the boss does the attack that disable
    your boost,  use chaos Purifying Storm to heal it.  Use  MOMO  to  heal your
    party whenever you need to. Just avoid to get in your A.G.W.S., it will only
    make the fight longer.  This is a long fight, but not a hard one.  After the
    fight, you'll receive a Boost Pack or a Shield Armor (rare).
    
    After the fight,  go  through  the door to the south and press the button to
    the right to activate the bridge that will bring you to the third tower.  Go
    to the left and go up the elevator there. Go back to the second tower if you
    want to save your game and then proceed to the third and  last  tower.  Head
    through the door to the left here  and go down the ladder to the next floor.
    Look to the left here and  blast  the  boxes  until  they are at your level.
    Cross  the bridge and blast the blue cylinder to get a Field Ring.  Go  down
    the ladder once again  and  blast  the boxes to the left until it is at your
    level.  Cross the bridge and blast the boxes to the left until it reach your
    level.  Blast  the  blue  cylinder there to get an Ether Pack DX.  Cross the
    bridge again and exit through the door south.  Re-enter the Song of Nephilim
    and the boxes will be back the way they were.  Climb  the ladder in front of
    you to the next level and blast the boxes to the left until they are at your
    level.  Cross  the  bridge  and climb the ladder all the way up.  Cross  the
    bridge to your right and blast the junk in the way.  It will open a hole but
    DON'T jump yet.  Keep  going to the right and blast the blue cylinder at the
    end to get a Skill Upgrade S.  Go  back  where the hole was and jumb down to
    get an Ether Pack DX.  Blast  the door north to get a Med Kit and go through
    the door. Open the treasure chest to get the Decoder #17. Blast the big junk
    blocking the ladder and climb down.  Cross  the bridge there and go down the
    ladder.  Go  through  the  door  to the left and you'll be in a place with a
    puzzle to solve.  Head  through the door to the left and you'll hear a song.
    The trick is to reproduce the same  sound you hear in that room in the room
    with the big column. Here is the answer to the puzzle :
    
       - Blast 4 times the red column
       - Blast 3 times the blue column
       - Blast 1 time the green column
    
    Once this is done,  go through the door to the south and press the button at
    the end of the path to activate the last bridge and the elevator leading you
    to the boss.  Go  through  the  door  next  to the console to go back at the
    beginning of the third tower.  Before going to the boss,  you should go save
    your game on the Elsa and prepare  yourself for 3 HARD boss fights in a row.
    DO NOT go down the elevator with the three colored light on it if you're not
    well prepared.  If  you  go  back  to  the Elsa,  you can now unlock another
    Segment Address on the ship.  It's  the  one  located  in the Catapult Deck.
    You'll get Speed Shoes from it.  Prepare  your  A.G.W.S. and your characters
    properly,  save  your  game  and  then  go back to the Song of Nephilim when
    you're ready.  Be  sure that your character are at least level 29 to go face
    the 3 bosses. Equip all your A.G.W.S. with Guard Cleaners and Guard Recovery
    (you can buy them at the A.G.W.S. on the Elsa. When you're ready to go, head
    back into the Song Of Nephilim, take the elevator to the sixth floor, choose
    the door leading left and then  go  down the elevator with the three colored
    lights on.  Head  through  the  door to the bottom and you'll activate a cut
    scene AND the first boss battle.

    Alright, another tough boss battle now.  Try to steal his Fast Circuit 25 at
    the beginning of the battle and then,  get everyone in their A.G.W.S.. Guard
    and then unleash your W-ACT with everyone. The fight should soom be over. It
    is not a hard fight if you do that.  He will always attack the same A.G.W.S.
    with his Aird attack.  That's why Guard Recovery is important in this fight.
    He also has an attack causing Slow on your A.G.W.S.,  and that's where Guard
    Cleaners are useful.  Once the fight is over, you'll receive a B-MAX Circuit
    or a Fast Circuit 25 (rare).
    
    After the fight,  you'll  see another cut scene and then you'll have a short
    time to heal your characters  and  A.G.W.S.  before going into the next boss
    fight.  You can go back on the Elsa once again to save your game and prepare
    yourself for the upcoming battle. Equip all your A.G.W.S. with Cockpit Guard
    and keep your  Guard  Cleaner  and  Guard  Recovery  equipped for the 2 next
    battles. You should also equip your A.G.W.S. with long-ranged weapon such as
    Grenade Launcher or Guns.  When  you're  ready  to  go,  head  back down the
    elevator and talk to the men there.  After  the  short cut scene,  you'll be
    entering the fight.

    Captain Matthews on the Elsa and ask him to take you to Proto Merkabah.
    
    Inside Proto Merkabah :
    ---------------------
    
    Once you're inside Proto Merkabah,  head  down the stairs and go all the way
    to the north.  Fight  the  Work Droid there and blast the yellow thing after
    that to get a Defibrilator Vest. Now, head all the way back and go upstairs.
    Once upstairs, go south and just follow the path.  You'll  eventually arrive
    at a door.  In  this  room,  go on the walkway and head right as soon as you
    possible. Blast the 2 red things there to get 2x Frame Repair A and 2x Ether
    Pack DX. The big box has an enemy in it. Go down the ladder to the right and
    move to the south after that.  Blast  the  2 big boxes there to get 2x Frame
    Repair Z and 2x Bio Sphere. Move to the left of the cars abd blast the 2 big
    boxes there to get 2x Med Kit DX.  Move  north  and  go left just before you
    arrive at the car. Press the 2 switches in here. Exit the small alcove, move
    north and then all the way to the right.  Blast  the  4  big boxes there and
    you'll get 2x Ether Pack DX.  Head in the small alcove just north of you and
    press the switch right in front of you.  DO  NOT  press the other one.  Once
    this is done, move left a little and go south in the opening. You'll be back
    on the walkway.  Move  to the left and follow the path all the way north and
    use the elevator at the end of it.  In  here,  climb the first set of stairs
    and go in the door to the left. Move left a little and head through the door
    here too.  Look at the data on the screen and you'll activate a short dialog
    between your characters.  Go  back  to  the  place  with the stairs and keep
    climbing until you arrive at the 42 floor.  Head  through the door there and
    do the same in that room.  Look  at  the  data once again.  The destructible
    object to the left contains an enemy. So don't blast it if you don't want to
    fight.  Head  back to the place with the stairs and go up another floor.  Go
    through the door here and head into the first door in this place.  Blast the
    big red thing there to receive 2x Frame Repair Z.  Exit  this room and go in
    the room just left of this one.  Look  at  the  holographic  image  of Proto
    Merkabah and then you can save your game!!!
    
    Go back in the room with  the  stairs  and  climb to the last floor of Proto
    Merkabah. Head through the door here and move north. Blast the door to get a
    Rejuvenator and grab the chest to get a Dragon Rod.  Once this is done, move
    to the left and enter the second door you see (the first one is locked).  We
    climbed some stairs earlier,  well now we have to go down some stairs!!!  Go
    down to the 43 Floor and enter the door.  Press  the switch there and you'll
    have access to the control room whenever you want to save your game!!! Enter
    the door left of the switch  and  blast  the  big  red  thing  to reveal the
    Segment Address #17. Unlock it and you'll get a BLOOD9. Go back to the place
    with the stairs and go down another floor.  Enter  the  door  and  press the
    switch to lower the window that was blocking your way on the 44th floor.  Go
    back to the place with the stairs  and  go  down one floor once again.  Head
    through the door here and do the same in the next room. Go to the other side
    of the room and exit through the door south.  You'll see a treasure chest to
    the right of the door, grab it to get a M Chip Guard.  Now, we need to go to
    the 44th floor,  but I strongly suggest you to save your game in the control
    room on the 43rd floor before going to the next place. When you're ready, go
    to the 44th floor, move to the north and enter the passage just south of the
    place with the destructible door.  In this room, head to the right first and
    blast the 2 things to reveal a new path.  Keep going right and blast all the
    things in here.  One  of them contains a treasure chest with a Chakra Shield
    in it. Now, head all the way to the left and get ready for a boss fight.
    
    Boss preparation : You can make  this  fight  really easy if you want to but
                       some of you will think it's cheating.  Just  put Shion in
                       your party and equip  her  with  Erde  Kaiser as an Ether
                       attack (hits 9999 of damage).  If you don't want to,  put
                       Shion, chaos and KOS-MOS in your party.  chaos  should be
                       able to perform  Supreme  Judgment  and  you  should also
                       transfer Shion's Medica All,  Medica  Rest  and Revert to
                       chaos. X-BUSTER MUST be in a Hi-Speed slot and Rain Blade
                       is also good to have in Hi-Speed slot.
    
    When you're ready, go all the way to the left and then south.  Jump  down at
    the end of the platform and you'll be facing the boss...

    Erde Kaiser Strategy :
    --------------------
    
    If you equipped Shion with Erde Kaiser,  it will be a really easy fight. Try
    to steal the Fast Circuit 25  and  Fast Circuit 50 from Proto Dora and the 2
    Schutz while KOS-MOS attacks using X-BUSTER.  On his first turn,  Proto Dora
    will raise a Beam Shield protecting him of your Beam Attack. Keep using your
    X-BUSTER and Rain Blade anyway since it does a lot of damage to the 2 Schutz
    anyway. Once the 2 Schutz are down,  his Beam Shield will be less effective,
    so start using your X-BUSTER  until the boss's HP is under 10 000.  Once you
    start seeing his HP, unleash Erde Kaiser and he  will  go  down.  After  the
    fight, you'll receive a Frame Repair Z,  Frame  Repair A and/or Fast Circuit
    25 (rare), Fast Circuit 50 (rare).
    
    No Erde Kaiser Strategy :
    -----------------------
    
                              *In the next update*
    
    You'll receive the Decoder 6 for your effort once the fight is over. Move to
    the upper left corner and climb the ladder.  Head  through the door and move
    across the corridor into the next room. You can go back to the 43rd floor by
    using the door to the right in this room.  Move  to  the right and blast the
    thing blocking the ladder.  Go  down  this ladder and go all the way around.
    Blast the big orange thing to reveal the Segment Address #6.  Decode  it and
    grab the chest in it to get a Trauma Plate. Make your way back up the ladder
    and move north into the door there.  Move  around the platform and enter the
    door to the north to activate  another  small dialog with your characters as
    well as a cut scene.  Once you regain control,  keep moving to the right and
    go down the stairs. Use the elevator there and save your game.
    
    Note : This is the last Save Point in the game,  so use it because you won't
           have the opportunity to use it again after that.
    
    Head in the room to the left and use the elevator there.  When  you  use it,
    you'll have to fight 4 enemies along the way. Once you reach the bottom, you
    can go back up the elevator  if you want since the 2 last bosses of the game
    are coming next. Don't worry, you won't have to fight the enemies again.  Go
    back down the elevator and then put Shion with Erde Kaiser and an Angel Ring
    equipped.  Head south a little and then right into the next room.  Once  you
    arrive at the end of the small corridor,  open  the door and head across the
    corridor into the next room.  Once again,  head across the corridor and when
    you arrive in the middle of it,  a cut scene will trigger leading you to the
    last 2 boss fights.

    Boss Name : Albedo
    HP : 7400
    Type : Biological
    Weakness : None
    ------------------
    
    With Erde Kaiser :
    ----------------
    This fight isn't hard at all since  you just have to cast Erde Kaiser on him
    and he'll be gone.  Don't worry about stealing his  stuff,  he  just  has  a
    Revive DX and a Rejuvenator (rare) on him.  You'll  receive  either  one  of
    these items after the fight.
    
    Without Erde Kaiser :
    -------------------
    
                                   *Coming soon*
    
    After the fight,  you'll  see  a cut scene and you'll then have to fight the
    final boss of the game!!!

    Boss Name : Sophie Peithos
    Sub Boss 1 Name : Jaldabaoth
    Sub Boss 2 Name : Ratatosk
    Boss HP : 16000
    Sub Boss 1 HP : 1200
    Sub Boss 2 HP : 1800
    Type : Gnosis for all
    Weakness : None for all
    ----------------------------
    
    With Erde Kaiser :
    ----------------
    
    Alright, this is the last battle.  This  is relatively easy if you have Erde
    Kaiser once again.  DON'T  use it at the beginning of the battle because the
    boss won't die immediately.  Bring  his  HP down until he is under 10000 HP.
    Just use Erde Kaiser after that and he'll go down. Pretty easy isn't it.
    
    Without Erde Kaiser :
    -------------------
    
                                  *Coming soon*
    
    After the fight,  go  get  some pop corn and enjoy the ending of the game!!!
    You'll have to save your game  but  save it under a DIFFERENT FILE since you
    won't be able to play again on that file.

                           XV. Frequently Asked Questions
                           ==============================
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q1. How good is this game?
    
    A1. It all depends on what you like in a RPG. This game is for more advanced
        RPG gamers.  If  you  don't  like  to watch a lot of cinematics,  then I
        suggest you not to get this game.  Of course, you can skip the cut scene
        but you won't be able to follow the story correctly.  If  you're looking
        for an easy RPG,  this  is  not the one you need.  This game is a little
        harder than the average RPG.  If  you have no experience in that kind of
        game, I suggest you play something else before playing this one.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q2. Is this game related to Xenogears?
    
    A2. The developpers of this the  game  said  that  this game IS NOT DIRECTLY
        related to Xenogears.  It will be more of a retelling of Xenogears since
        this game was originaly supposed to be a 6 episodes game.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q3. I missed the Commander's Crest in the fight against Gargoyle,  can I get
        it somewhere else?
    
    A3. No, you can't. Sorry to tell you this, but this is the only place in the
        game where you can get this item.  Use  MOMO's  Magic  Caster to get the
        item or boost  your  Rare  Item  acquisition rate by equipping the Thief
        Ring on one of your character.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q4. What is the best place to get T.Points?
    
    A4. In the Encephalon on Second Miltia.  The  place where you start with Jr.
        has some spotlights.  Go  under  them  and  the ennemies give you a good
        amount of T.Points there.  If  you  want to make it even more effective,
        equip your character with the  Swimsuit or the Swimsuit skill to get 25%
        more T.Points after the battles.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q5. At the beginning of the game,  once  you  have KOS-MOS in your party,  I
        don't know where to go anymore. Where am I supposed to go?
    
    A5. Head for the corridor  with  Shion's quarter and head all the way south.
        You'll eventually find the exit and head for the next boss fight.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q6. When is Episode 2 coming out?
    
    A6. Monolith Soft has announced that  the project is still underway and that
        they are going to show us some more at the end of July.  We'll  have  to
        wait until there to have more informations.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q7. Why can't I use W-ACT?
    
    A7. In order to use the W-ACT,  you  need  2  of the same weapon equipped to
        your A.G.W.S.. These weapons must also have the W-ACT in their abilities
        if you want it to work  (look at the bottom of the screen when you equip
        your A.G.W.S.).  You also need 6AP to perform the attack. If you did all
        of the above, you'll be able to perform W-ACT during battle!!!
