I had a really hard time finding all of the items, and when I looked around I
couldn't find an FAQ. I found this suprising considering that you need all of
the items in order to get all of the skills. So.. I made one.

Please understand, this isn't an entirely original document, just a research
one. I used the Xenosaga Official Strategy Guide by Bradygames to find almost
all of the items, as well as the information from them. What I did was find the
item in the guide, then went to that part of the game to make a more clear
explanation of finding the item.


Please feel free to e-mail or IM me if you have any problems with this FAQ.
KittyThePooka@aol.com or KittyThePooka are the names for those.

Thank you to Caley Philips for helping me find that !!&#@!!&^*$@)( Star Hat!
Thank you to Andrew for helping me find the Cross, and also for generally being
cool.
Thank you to ShinyBunny for helping me find the White Ring.

Coming Updates!

Very soon I will be adding all other information regarding Skill Items. This
will include what they do, what the skill is called, and how many skill points
it takes to extract a skill. The same information can be found in both other
FAQ's as well as in the Bradygames Strategy Guide, but you will not find the
researched locations there. I still recommend the guide as a valuable resource
for anyone who wants to excell at this game!

if you've played the Driller game enough to get the second) on your characters,

doll enemy. After defeating it, shoot the object behind it and go down that
manhole. Continue along the sewer passage and go up the stairs. You are now
back in the beginning area, but behind a blocked point, so that you can open
the doors. Unclock the doors at the consoles, and go down the steps. Kill the

before the Unicorns. Go inside, destroy the objects, and go up the stairs.
Where there is a shop with broken glass, go inside. Defeat the Hydra gnosis.
They will leave behind the decoder. To get the Address, in the Encephelon dive,
where the party finds an old subway ticket booth, shoot the glass of the booth

left of the Iron Man bar's entrance. This will lower the canopy. During the

main character and go inside the Our Treasure Inn. Climb the ladder all the way
to the top. Head south, and there is an exit. Jump outside the exit, onto the
catwalk. Walk all the way to the left, and destroy the object. Jump down onto
the canopy, and hold the analog stick up and right. Using this, you should
avoid sliding off the canopy and make it to the door on the other end of the
canopy. Go inside, and Mintia will greet Momo.)

Master's Pendant- (Song of Nephilim, defeat Ein Rugel (Rare Item). Either equip
characters with thief rings, or cast Magic Caster, Psycho Pocket or Queen's

Bio-

My name is Kitty, by the way. I like introductions to come last. I'm a college
student, I write and do some art, and as you can see, I love RPG's. This is,
however, my very first FAQ.

IF SOMETHING IS MISSING OR INCORRECT, or IF YOU WANT TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THIS
FAQ,

please e-mail me at KittyThePooka@aol.com, with Xenosaga in the title, or go
ahead and AIM me at KittyThePooka.

Before you contact me, however:
	Yes, I do like the game. If I did not like the game, I would not have written
an FAQ on it.
	I have only played this game twice. My *only* areas of "expertise" on this
game are on skill locations and on G-making. If you contact me with questions
on either of those areas, I will very gladly help you! However, if you ask me a
question on any of the other areas in this massive game I will probably suggest
that you read someone else's FAQ or contact someone with more knowlege of the
game than I have. That or I'll stare at the computer with a confused expression
on my face.


That said! I would appreciate constructive criticism if you feel up to
buggering me.
