04.)                         INTRODUCTION - G0400
=============================================================================
=============================================================================

Hello! I am Damir Kolar and I welcome you to my new project. After completing
FFX-2 one time too many it was time for me to take a break from that game. But
wouldn't you know it - on Monday, 3rd May 2004, Xenosaga: Episode I arrived in
my inbox. About half an hour before I'd leave for work. I quickly inserted the
DVD in my PS2 and watched the opening sequence along with the intro in some
hardcore battle. "Great game!", I thought, as I was departing for work...

Now, 8 days later, game stands completed on my finished games pile. But with
one difference - I've decided that I'll make a complete walkthrough for the
game. But not only for this one, for all upcoming episodes as well.

Now allow me to address some things:

- Not only will I provide written guidelines, you'll also be able to *see*
  what I'll be referring to, thus ensuring minimal-to-none confusion. What do
  I mean by seeing? I'll be taking pics of anything I deem important enough to
  be showed on visual representation. I'll upload them on webspace for you to
  view and successfully complete the task at hand. No more confusing ways of
  navigating the dungeon or looking for particular item.

- If you take a quick scan thru my guide, you won't find the explanations for
  battle system, main menu, saving / loading, etcetera. Ever since I made one
  for my last guide, I'd find myself fixing something quite often in that
  section. Besides, game manual and in-game tutorials do perfect job of
  explaining the battle system. As for main menu and selections within,
  everything is covered nicely - in case you can't do something (like put LOW
  speed Tech attack into HI slot), explanation follows at the bottom of the
  screen telling you why you can't do whatever is it you're trying to perform.

- Spoiler issue. I'm a player of the game, just like you (who is reading this
  guide) are. First time I've played through the game was completely by
  myself - I haven't been using any guides, therefore nothing was spoiled for
  me. All the story elements that were supposed to surprise me had such
  effect. And I will NOT spoil such story elements for you.

- With that in mind, this is the way this guide is written. To include as
  little spoilers as possible. Let me ask you this: Say you meet character X
  very early in the game and he proves to be a friend. Now, you're close to
  the end of the game and you open a guide to find some help you need. You
  accidentally 'trip' over final boss entry where it clearly says - BOSS
  battle: Character X. Now if this doesn't cause you to go ballistic, I don't
  know what will. I know the feeling cos I've had the displeasure of running
  into few such accidents.

- Have a problem with that or how I 'mask' spoilers? My guide is not the only
  one out there, you know. I'm not forcing you to use mine, but if you use
  others, then you better be prepared for lots of potential spoilers, which
  will ruin the element of surprise for you. Also, people that have problems
  with how I write my guide are in great minority.

- Usage of abbreviations. When you're in my place writing a guide for the
  game of such proportions, then complain about using too many abbreviations.
  You have no idea how immensely helpful abbreviations are for me when
  writing a guide. Besides, you will only need to look it up once or twice
  (maybe thrice) before it becomes second nature.

Are you ready? Power up your PS2, open the disc tray, pop in Xenosaga: E1 DVD,
close the disc tray, wait for Start Menu, then select New Game. May the saga
begin...

=============================================================================
=============================================================================
06.)                        TIPS AND TRICKS - G0600
=============================================================================
=============================================================================

   I. Characters have nine basic attributes.
      HP - Amount of hit points. If this figure is zero, chr becomes KO-ed.
      EP - Ether power. If this figure is zero, chr can't use Ether attacks.
      STR - Strength. Affects the amount of physical damage chr does.
      VIT - Vitality. Affects the amount of physical damage chr receives.
      EATK - Ether Attack. Affects the power of chr's ether attacks.
      EDEF - Ether Defense. Affects the amount of ether damage chr receives.
      DEX - Dexterity. Affects the accuracy of chr's attacks.
      EVA - Evasion. Affects chr's ability to dodge enemy's attacks.
      AGL - Agility. Affects chr's initiative at battle start and how often
            can that chr attack.

  II. There's four types of points you receive after battle.
      EXP - Experience points. Once chr accumulates predetermined amount of
            EXP, chr will level up.
      TPTS - Tech Points. Used to beef up chr's attributes, or to power up
             tech attacks.
      EPTS - Ether Points. Used to evolve chr's Ethers, or to transfer already
             learned Ethers to other chrs. Not all Ethers can be transfered.
      SPTS - Skill Points. Used to extract skills from acc.

 III. As far as money accumulation goes, money is scarce. Your biggest money
      income will very likely be poker and slots minigames, so learn them
      well. There are also few emails which will give you money, but do not
      count on them - there's a *few* of them.

  IV. Enemies belong to three types.
      B - Biological enemies. These are mostly human type enemies; there's
          some more enemies that belong to this type, but revealing who they
          are is a spoiler.
      M - Mech enemies. These are mostly robotic enemies.
      G - Gnosis enemies. Alien type enemies. But just who are they? You'll
          have to find that on your own.

   V. When improving Tech attacks, your first investment should go into
      changing TATK's speed to HI. Doing so will allow you to use TATK with
      just four AP. Then invest TPTS into Wait attribute of TATK.

  VI. When using EPTS, it's a wise idea to transfer healing Ethers to all chrs
      you'll be using in battles. That way you won't have to rely on a single
      chr doing all the healing duty.

 VII. You don't have to fight every single enemy you see. It may very well be
      possible to sneak behind it, thus not letting the enemy even spot you.
      Also, you may occassionally come across three canisters, which when
      blown up, provide a bonus:
      Red canister: Field - Stop / Battle - BG +1
      Yellow canister: Field - Slow / Battle - Critical+
      Purple canister: Field - Stop / Battle - Skill Lock
      Also, once you win the battle (or you've escaped), onscreen chr will
      flash briefly - during this time you will not enter any battles. Use
      this chance to quickly advance into a safe area.

VIII. Three things people often overlook:
       - Pressing START during some of Ether or attack animations will skip
         that scene entirely.
       - You can advance thru storybased sequences by pressing START, then
         TRIANGLE.
       - Pressing START, SELECT, R1 & L1 at the same time will do soft reset.

  IX. Here's some information concerning chrs' attacks.
      a) There are five elemental attributes in XS: E1. They are:
         - FIRE element attribute
         - ICE element attribute
         - LIGHTNING element attribute
         - SPIRIT element attribute
         - BEAM element attribute
      b) Along with elemental attributes of chrs' attacks, many of them also
         have other characteristics, which are:
         - SLASH attack attribute
         - HIT attack attribute
         - PIERCE attack attribute
         - LINE attack attribute
         - STATUS attack attribute
      c) That's still not everything. You also have:
         - NEAR attack attribute (chr must be close to the enemy)
         - FAR attack attribute (chr doesn't have to be close to the enemy)
         - AIR attack attribute (chr doesn't have to be close to the enemy)

   X. Always talk with everybody you see. Keep talking to them until they
      respond with same text, meaning they don't have anything left to say.
      After some major plot advance there's a possibility people have new
      information and tips, making trips back to where you were worthwhile.

------------------------------ A - STATUS BASICS ----------------------------
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

1. By looking at the above mini-TOC you see that there's indeed many statuses
   you can have fun with in XS: E1.

2. After noting down each status, here's the final matchup - 35 negative VS
   21 positive statuses. During your trip you're sure to come across at least
   2/3 of this list, and if in certain tight spot you don't know what status
   is for, you might be screwed royally.

3. So you've been affected by a certain status, but don't know what it was?
   There's two ways to tell what your chrs have fallen under.
   - visual representation of status in effect (poisoned chr will have green
     cloud of smoke above chr's head)
   - when it's that chr's turn and if you have control over the chr, enter
     chr's submenu - status will be displayed in upper left corner

4. Most of NEGSE can be prevented from occuring by equipping acc with
   relevant anti-skill or having Status Lock casted (note that this also shuts
   out POSSE). If however, you still get caught by surprise and chr has been
   granted NEGSE, you can cure that status in many ways: by Ethers which lift
   statuses, or status-lifting item made esp for that situation. In dire
   situation, you could KO the chr and then revive that chr - any status will
   be gone.

5. Most of POSSE is beneficial to you, so you should keep in mind to always
   be in at least one POSSE to ensure easy victories. With that said, don't
   expect enemies to just let you become super-powerful. They have and will
   use any means necessary to negate the effects of POSSE.

6. Some of POSSE come as AAB on armors and acc, so make sure you equip those.
   You may also wish to employ some of Ethers which grant POSSE when casted
   (for example Best Ally, which grants all battling chrs auto-revival when
   killed). Last way to get into beneficial status is thru items.


-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
------------------- B - STATUS CHART OVERVIEW / EXPLANATION -----------------
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Before I dig into explaining statuses, a nicely laid out chart is necessary.
It will show how I intend to outline the info one needs to know on certain
status effect.

CHART OVERVIEW
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. NAME?                   | TIME/HIT?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. It does...?
3. Icon feature?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

CHART EXPLANATION
1. Name of the status, followed by one piece of info:
   - Adresses the issue if status is lifted automatically after some time
     has elapsed and / or if status is lifted if target is hit by PATK.*
     * - 'Time' means status is lifted automatically after some time elapses.
         'Hit' means status is lifted if target is hit by PATK.
         'Both' means that status is lifted if either some time elapses or
         target is hit by PATK. 'None' means that status cannot be cured by
         time-lapse or hitting target with PATK.

2. What does status in question really do.

3. If no visual feature of status being in effect is given, icon feature is
   presented *for sure* and will clear any doubts.

After initial scene is over, you will have control over Shion. Move her close
to Kosmos and talk to her. You will be given four options. For now I suggest
you select: [Normal Attacks], [Tech Attacks] and [Sub-menus], in that order.
After your selection is made, touch the yellow soldier in the back and battle
commences. Tutorial will explain basics of the battle - so read 'em and
memorize 'em. Because the enemies don't attack, it may be a good idea to stock
up on some EXP and three types of PTS you need for improving your chrs.

When you feel you're ready, talk to Kosmos again and choose [Switch to Real
Combat]. You will enter a battle against Drone M, Drone F and Attack Drone. I
suggest killing Drone F first, cos it can attack all chrs at once. Then smite
down all Drone M's HP, followed by Attack Drone. Congratulations, you've
completed the first 'serious' challenge. A scene will kick in, so watch it.

Shion will explain what Kosmos' objective is. After being briefed choose first
option to proceed. Now then - at the first screen you'll see two Attack Drones
roaming about. Go kill them for some much needed EXP and PTS. There's a ladder
in SW part of this screen you can climb. When you reach the top, you'll see a
human enemy inside the room with two destroyable objects. Shoot red can first
(with SQUARE button - this will use so-called Vaporizer, which can be used to
clear the obstacles outta your way or reveal hidden passages), then blow up
the door and run inside. Kill off all enemies using boosts. Then open the
chest for 2x MED KIT S.

Climb back down and examine the wrecked car, which is close to yellow
canister. Blow up both of them. E of the car is a set of stairs you can climb
- you'll reach another door - blow them up and walk inside for MED KIT. Item
collecting is done here, so go N and thru the open garage door to enter the
big building.

Once inside, walk forward and engage in next battle. You will see a door...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE103.jpg

Eh, we can't enter yet. You need Mission Key SI, which is not very far.
Anyway, climb the stairs on E side of the room and stroll along the catwalk.
On your way you'll run into another human enemy, which can be easily disposed
of. If possible, blow red can near it allowing you to start the battle with BG
+1 bonus. Now near that red can is a path branching to the S. Blow up the box
blocking your way and walk outside - at the end of the path is a box
containing REVIVE. Now go back inside, destroy the box again, but this time go
left at the cross and thru another door...

TIP: If you wish, you can abuse the red can here and continuously lure the
nearby enemy after you - wait until it gets close, then blow up red can and
repeat. I'd recommend reaching LV3 with this tiny trick.

WARNING! Before advancing any further, enter the menu and heal both girls' HP
and EP to max - you're about to enter a sub-boss battle! When done, follow the
one-way path, go up the stairs and...

----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. Handgun Triple Shot P - VS one chr - piercing phd
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Looks intimidating? Fear not, there are a couple of factors working in your
favor, making it almost impossible to lose this battle. As the battle fury
commences, Shion boards her AGWS automatically. Short tutorial will explain
that. When it's Kosmos' turn, have her guard to achieve 6 AP for next turn.
Now Shion will most likely get another turn (SPX' AGL is only 5, in comparison
to Shion's 8 and Kosmos' 7) - another tutorial will issue explaining AGWS
commands - memorize them! Also have Shion defend for first turn.

About now SPX gets an attack in. It'll use Triple Shot to hit either Shion or
Kosmos, but it doesn't really matter. It does about 5 damage to AGWS Shion is
in or 15 damage tops to Kosmos (both gals are still guarding). Now let's tear
SPX apart - Shion uses Square attack twice, leaving SPX hanging with about 50
HP remaining, or quite possibly killing it already. If by any chance SPX
survives, it won't survive Kosmos cannonade - Blaster twice, finishing by
Rcannon. If possible and you can afford it, try killing SPX when ESL is
showing point bonus.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! ************************


After the scene examine the yellow floating block in the background. Press
Circle and save your game - it's about time we do that. Enemies have been
changed into Gnosis type, so prepare to react accordingly. Now descend E
stairs, but before going thru the door make use of the ladder nearby - climb
down and exit thru S door.

You'll find yourself near a vehicle - blow up the container nearby. Surprise!
After initial greetings kick drones' asses. When destroying stuff, items ain't
only things inside. To your E are more boxes to be blown up - collect ETHER
PACK and 2x MED KIT S. What's that weird door behind the wrecked vehicle...?

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE104.jpg

Thats's one of the 18 Segment Addresses - you found SEGAD 10. But to open it,
you need items called Decoders - we need Decoder 10 for this specific door. Oh
well, you can return here later in the game, so we'll grab the spoils behind
the door then. Return to the ladder, climb it and now take E door...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE102.jpg

Grab the MISSION KEY SI, then blow up the closet and operate the switch to
unlock the door. Outside a flying drone will be roaming about. As long as you
WALK around behind it, it won't engage in battle with you. Furthermore, most
of flying enemies can only be hit with triangle attacks (far attacks) or ether
attacks. Kosmos has probably already accumulated 200 TPTS? If yes, have her
upgrade Rblade's speed to HI, so that she can set in HI slot. Next boss is
weak to Slash attacks, so why not attack it every turn with Rblade? I also
recommend training Shion until she learns Medica All Ether. That's it - we're
set, so head for the door you couldn't unlock before (make sure to kill the
Gnosis drone down here) and examine the red button to the right of the door.
Access granted!

WARNING! Before advancing heal gals' HP and EP. Now advance! If you'd like to
know my status, I was LV5 with both girls and Rblade in HI slot for Kosmos.

---------------- ITEM ------------------------------ RARE ITEM --------------
Ether Pack S                          | none
-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Weakness against slash attacks.
- Can boost and counter boost.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. Plasma Shot E/B - VS one chr - beam etd
2. Active Guard - on itself - damage is reduced, counter boosts possible
3. Revenge Combo E/E/P - VS one chr - 3-stage attack: 1st Plasma Shot, 2nd
   'swipe', 3rd 'swipe'
4. 'Swipe' - VS one chr - light phd
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

This guy is a lot more entertaining than the previous one. As you see from the
data I've provided above, there's only one attack you need to worry about and
that is its Revenge Combo. As it is weak to slash attacks, Kosmos' Rblade will
be very helpful. Girls also possess superior AGL, so undisturbed healing in
need of trouble is guaranteed. Also, there's what I would call two stages to
this battle - 1st stage is when GX' HP is between 211-420, and second is when
its HP is 210 or lower. Interested in knowing more?

As battle begins, GX will be pulling off two attacks - Plasma Shot for about
40 dmg, and 'swipe' for 40 dmg, both on one chr. I recommend putting Shion
behind Kosmos where she'll act as her healer. Allow Kosmos to take the brunt
of the attacks - her VIT is very high anyway, so she'll be able to sustain 2-3
attacks before she needs assistance from Shion. Whenever it's Kosmos' turn, do
square attack, followed by Rblade (which we set into HI slot). In case you
didn't have enough TPTS yet, you will need to guard on 1st, then unleash
square, square, Rblade combo. This will take off good chunk of its HP - but be
careful, as GX can boost during 1st phase!

When you smite off 50% of its HP, GX will think about it - and start using
Active Guard. Make sure you do not attack it when it's guarding - anything you
do to it will prompt it to perform cboost and unleash Revenge Combo - you're
looking at around 100-120 dmg. Instead wait until GX' next turn when it will
lower its guard and attack you again. When extremely low on HP, it will Active
Guard every turn, so you'll have to take that Rblade to it and stick it down
its throat.

I don't consider AGWS necessary enough to be used in this battle, but if you
like feeling powerful over puny enemies, by all means go ahead and send that
boss six feet under.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shion will start in the lab at the extreme S of Woglinde. Talk to everyone
here and make sure you go up the stairs in N part of the room - here you can
talk to Janice who will tell you of special surprise they left for Shion in
Kosmos' simulator. Whatever could that be? Back downstairs look for the guy
near the red machine (just a bit N from savepoint) kneeling down near it -
talk to him and agree to enter the sim again. Careful - this time you have
only Shion in your party, but still... if you've followed my advices, Shion
will have little to no problems departing the enemies six feet under. Your
objective now is to reach the room where you fought Drone GX and blow up the
blue box - inside is a chest with BATTLE PASSPORT SI.

Exit the Kosmos' sim thru the exit point nearby by selecting [Yes.]. You're
back in lab room - with nothing else to do here, take E exit. OH! BTW, open
your main menu and examine UMN option - you'll see that Shion has received
some mail already: MAIL 01, MAIL 02 and MAIL 03. All of these mails tell the
player about some basic tips and instructions on how to equip chrs and AGWS.

Keep going E and you'll soon spot a bluehaired guy standing next to large
display - this is the map of Woglinde (this isn't the only display, BTW).
Examine by it circle and... my, that's a big ship. Fortunately, there's no way
you can get lost. Also remember, that if you need any advice, don't be afraid
to ask people around you for information! Anyway, from the display take the
path S - MAIL 04 will arrive. After the scene move Shion S for another scene.

Shion will now be in a small square room. If you try returning to the lab
room, you won't be able to. Instead go thru E door for another scene. When
Shion is in your control again, she'll be in a big room (hangar perhaps) where
a giant yellow object is. Nothing else of interest here, so proceed E - BEFORE
you exit the hangar, talk to the hangarman in the lower right corner of the
hangar. Pick [Uh, only if it's quick], then [Sure, that's fine]. Afterwards go
E, then N. When in new room (referred to as D1, as written on the floor),
advance N for next scene.

Shion is called in for some service, but before that she needs to recover
Maintenance Data. From your position continue going N past the blue door
(leading to partition switch), but stop on the way to nail SEGAD 18...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE105.jpg

Next door further N leads to Shion's room.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE106.jpg

Nab MAINTENANCE DATA SI from her desk in NW corner, then save your game or
rest, in case you've been having fun in Kosmos' sim. When you try to leave the
room, MAIL 05 will arrive. Go back to the door leading to partition control
room, but instead take the path leading W. Shion will enter the Realian
infirmary - her next objective will be to speak to all six Realians who are
being under maintenance. Once you do so, a scene will unfold. Forward we go (E
exit is temporarily blocked off, so we'll have to go N).

Once you're in room D2, go back S immediately. Go thru double door and make
about 10 steps more S when you're back in the infirmary. MAIL 06 will arrive -
press circle to reply to it and select [I will help you]! Your reply will be
labeled as MAIL 07. Now back N, thru double doors and forward to D2.

What's that? A debris on the bridge crossing to the next room? Maybe we can
help clear it outta the way. There's a guy, called Holgar, close to the drill
machine. Talk to him and choose [Maybe I should give it a try], then [I got it
already]. Commence drilling!

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE107.jpg

A short tutorial will follow:
- square to operate the strut, then the drill
- left stick or R2 button switch between camera modes
- X to quit the minigame

When you're done destroying all five pieces of debri, you'll get DRILL
PASSPORT SI, MED KIT S (if all debri was right on target) or MED KIT (if you
missed at least once). Continue N yet again and MAIL 08 arrives - at this point
Database gets added to UMN submenu. You'll be in room D3 now - Shion enters a
passageway with two doors on W side. Enter the first door to find a save point.
Nothing else of interest, so back out to the passageway and go N (take note of
the soldier who lost his key). As you're going down the corridor, make sure to
take a detour to the left in a small nook with some sofas, at which point MAIL
09 will arrive. When read, reply with [I read your secret email] - this will be
marked as MAIL 10. Nothing else matters for now in this corridor, so continue
N.

In room D4 a guy called Swaine will call Shion over - choose [Yes, please tell
me]. He'll hand over SEGMENT FILE SI. Now examine the door which turns out to
be SEGAD 7.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE108.jpg

When done, go E and receive MAIL 11. Go E even more to enter D5. The lift
behind orange doors leads to Woglinde's bridge - DON'T GO THERE YET! Go E,
past the guy who wonders about switches, and follow the corridor. After a long
trek you'll reach Command Center room with another save point.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE109.jpg

Chest you see behind the blue glass is unavailable for now. Back out, go left
and continue the exploration. Look, another SEGAD...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE110.jpg

This time it's SEGAD 16. Moving on to N, then E - you will reach another
entrance to D4. Climb the ladder on N wall you'll soon see and talk with the
guy to learn an important clue. Back down the ladder and E - you'll find a
cross where D5's paths meet. There's a square shaped structure here and two
soldiers - talk to them for the game of tag, which is quite simple. When one
of them says, here we go, immediately have Shion run N, and around the square
structure I mentioned earlier, then S toward the package. If you manage to nab
it without getting caught, MED KIT will be yours. You can get two more Med
Kits, before soldiers run out of prizes. Now go towards NW corner of D5 room
and enter AGWS hangar.

In SE corner you'll find a guy who sells stuff. Nothing major or hot, but if
you need shopping anyway, SPARE 500 G. You'll need them shortly. In the hangar
itself there's a worker you can talk to and agree to engage in AGWS simu-
battle. Even though he advises against it, have Shion fight by HERSELF. Do not
enter her AGWS - true, she'll take damage from attacks, but after each battle
her HP and EP will be healed to full automatically. Raise Shion to LV7 - it's
also extremely easy to kill SPX when ESL shows point bonus. Gain enough TPTS
to increase Lightning Blast's and Spell Ray's Speed to HI, as well as upgrade
their Wait time. Do not forget to set Shion's TATK to HI slots!

That's it. We've explored everything of interest, so now all that's left to do
is head for Woglinde's bridge (located in D5, behind orange doors). Once
you're on the bridge, proceed up and talk to Woglinde's captain. Captain
couldn't have been more correct. Cool, Shion's got the rest of the day off. As
Shion's going off the bridge, MAIL 12 will arrive (make sure you download the
SPRINKLE attachment). Now use the elevator and go to D5.

When you've arrived to D5, try going anywhere - a broadcast will inform you of
package having arrived at AGWS hangar. Go there and speak to the guy sitting
behind the desk to receive MWS weapon for Shion. Now return to D5 and go to
the part of the corridor, where holographic controls are. MAIL 13 will arrive
by passing thru the corridor like this:

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE111.jpg

When you read it, reply by choosing [I will invest in Vector]. Doing so will
add MAIL 14. Also, door connecting D5 and D1 is now operational, so you don't
have to take long way around. Also, make way back to the lab where Shion works
- here walk along the W wall to receive MAIL 15. That is all for now, folks.
Depart for Shion's room, save your game and then decide [Maybe I'll take a
catnap].

                            MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once Shion is 'yours', engage the battle with first enemy you see. Do whatever
and Shion auto-moves to D5. BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Until stated otherwise, do
not engage any enemies - if you do so, you will get Game Over! Now then...

Shion will see two Gnosis beating up on something. Slowly walk E toward two
partition switches - the right one of two Gnosis will spot Shion and chase
after her. Don't bother pressing the switches, instead hide in this room...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE112.jpg

Stay here until chasing Gnosis returns to its previous position. Back outside
continue E until you come to a curve. A survivor - talk to him for few hints.
Now go N until Shion comments on surviving. How to get past that bozo in the
way? Go here...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE113.jpg

And operate the switch. I guess it's not just men that whistle after women.
Path further N is free. You'll come to the door leading to Command Center. Use
the save point (to break the glass, we need Vaporizer, which we shall soon
get), then go back outside past dying civilian. Uh oh, another Gnosis -
*quickly* backtrack to previous room! Gnosis will give up and free the path.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE114.jpg

Shion now has access to D4. Darn - debris and Gnosis (I hate rhymes). Climb
the ladder and push the button.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE115.jpg

Sayonara! Use the ladder to climb back down and continue trekking W. At the
cross go down and talk to the soldier - he'll mention Vaporizer. Shion needs
this thingie to destroy obstacles - just like you did in Kosmos' sim,
remember? Anyway, make haste to AGWS hangar! Talk to the person on the right
to receive VAPORIZER PLUG-IN SI, as well as being offered a chance to shop.
Shell out all cash for Med Kits! Now go to N part of hangar and destroy stuff
for 2x FRAME REPAIR A, 2x FRAME REPAIR Z & ESCAPE PACK. Back to D4.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE116.jpg

First lure the Gnosis by standing behind box on the left so that Gnosis
destroys the box. Then stand behind the electrified fences to lure both Gnosis
in touching them. You can now collect 200 G and 2x VEIL without interruption.
Remember the button we pushed in D4 to get rid of certain Gnosis not so long
ago? Go on that level again and go bit more left - smash two crates for 200 G
and REVIVE DX. Back to the soldier we go... Darn! Prepare for a game of tag
again.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE117.jpg

As you go S, two Gnosis will emerge from the side walls and give chase after
Shion. DO NOT GET IN CONTACT! Run back N, around the square structure and then
back S - MAKE SURE BOTH GNOSIS FOLLOW YOU (if you're confused, just follow the
arrow as shown in the picture). Keep at it, for they will soon give up. Shion
now receives DECODER 7 SI (can't post the pic for spoiler reasons). Before you
open SEGAD 7, destroy the objects on your left for BIO SPHERE and ETHER PACK.
Now open SEGAD 7 and collect ROBOT PART RIGHT ARM from the chest inside. Back
outside - going E here is suicide, so instead take the door leading to D3.
YES! All lucky sevens!!! When in Shion's control...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE118.jpg

Nab CREWMAN'S KEY SI from the dead soldier. Unlock the door to your left and
get SMP53AG from the chest inside. Back outside and enter next door. Save your
game!

---------------- ITEM ------------------------------ RARE ITEM --------------
SMG99AG                               | none
-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Weakness against lightning attacks.
- Can counter boost.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. 'Shootout' - VS one chr - phd
2. Acid Hand P - VS one chr - piercing phd, induces VIT down
3. Ether Counterattack Up +20% - on itself - preparation for Spread Beam
4. Spread Beam E - BATT VS vanguard - beam etd
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - 'shootout' deals about 50 dmg, Acid Hand
around 20 dmg, and Spread Beam up to 100 dmg (it hits whole vanguard). You
must try not to use too many ether attacks against Cyclops - if you do it
anyway, its counter rate goes up 20% for each ether attack it receives. As
added bonus, it will also cboost and release Spread Beam immediately. Inspite
being slow, its strength lies in CATT, so do anything you can to not trigger
them. However, if hit with light attacks (like Shion's Lightning Blast),
Cyclops doesn't cboost.

When battle starts, put both Shion and the '3rd guy' in back row. Doing so
will allow you to have only Kosmos take damage and having two chrs being able
to heal. Healing should be pretty easy anyway, cos Cyclops' AGL is only 6.
Okay, so how do we go about killing this guy? Most likely first few rounds of
boss' attacks will consist mainly of 'shootout', with occassional Acid Hand
thrown in.

If Kosmos' Rcannon is stronger than Rblade, definitely use Rcannon. Who cares
about Spread Beam anyway? It'll only hit Kosmos, and you have two chr for
healing just in case she takes too much damage. As Cyclops' Spread Beam
counter rate rose, I thought that the attack itself would grow stronger -
fortunately I was proven wrong - 70 dmg to Kosmos at best. As you can see,
using this strategy you have to nothing to fear but to bury Cyclops where it
belongs - back to history.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! ************************


After the battle Shion regains the possibility of using AGWS in battles. I'm
not a frequent user of AGWS, as I rely on versatility of three chrs instead.
AGWS don't have as much fighting capabilities, you can't heal them IN battles,
and if FHP reaches zero, you can't revive them. This is why most of my boss
strategies will be based on fighting with chrs.

You're now in D1. Blow up two wall decors for ETHER PACK and MED KIT, then
kill the Gnosis bit more E. You've reached the partition control room - enter
it, open the partition doors and make haste for Shion's room where you can
save and rest to regain lost strength. Now that you have Vaporizer & the
party, we'll make another circle around the ship to collect stuff you couldn't
before.

Exit Shion's room, go N and kill two Gnosis here, then blow stuff up to find
BIO SPHERE. Go N and enter D5 - kill two Gnosis here, then blow stuff up and
collect 2x REVIVE. Don't use W doors yet, instead go E. Kill next Gnosis near
the hologram controls and destroy the objects nearby for MED KIT S and ETHER
PACK S. Further N enter Command Center and mow down the blue glass, as well as
dispatch next Gnosis. Chest contains DECODER 18 SI.

Now make your way to from D5 thru D4 and D3 to D2 - when you get to the gap in
the bridge, destroy four barrels nearby for a chest with STIM. Now go back to
Shion's room and save your progress. Go collect COAT LIGHTNING from SEGAD 18.
Your next objective is to reach the hangar where escape pods are. From Shion's
room go S and engage in battle with three Gremlins (beware, kill them in one
turn, or else they will cboost and mess you up badly). When going S, you will
come across red can - use it as an advantage for Golem that lurks nearby.
There's a niche to your left now. Blow up three crates for ESCAPE PACK and
ESCAPE PACK, as well as friendly 'reunion'.

When down, continue S still past another Gnosis. You'll see another red can,
and more destroyable objects, which contain 2x REVIVE and REVIVE. Kill final
Gnosis in your way and enter hangar doors. Equip Coat Ligtning on Kosmos.

Here are my gals' levels (both were LV8) and Ethers they've learned thanks to
using ESL point bonus slot:
Shion: Medica, Medica All, Analyze, Goodbye, Boost 1
Kosmos: Mode A7, Down Dex, Down Force
Also note that both of their TATK were leveled up enough to be set in HI slot,
allowing me to use TATK every turn. As chrs are far more versatile in
fighting, I wasn't sorry to spend few hours battling the Gnosis and
accumulating PTS I needed - free restoration of HP, easy enemies, so why not
spend some time with them?

-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Minotaur has weakness against beam attacks.
- Sky Fish has weakness against piercing attacks.
- Sky Fish can boost, while Minotaur can boost and counter boost.
------------------------------- MINOTAUR ATTACKS ----------------------------
1. Thunderbolt E/L - LATT VS one chr - light etd
2. Diffusion Beam E/B - BATT VS vanguard - beam etd
3. Gathering strength for Gravity Pulse - on itself - preparation for G. Pulse
4. Gravity Pulse E - VS all chr - etd
------------------------------- SKY FISH ATTACKS ----------------------------
1. 'Slash' - VS one chr - phd
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - Bolt deals around 50 damage, Diffusion
Beam 40 damage to vanguard, and Pulse hits all chrs for 60 damage. Fortunately
Minotaur is slower than both gals, making healing a breeze... were it not for
two Sky Fish which accompany the big boss ('slash' is worth around 35 dmg).
Take note that all three enemies can only be hit by triangle attacks and
Rcannon or Spell Ray TATK. Sky Fish will often boost, thus interrupting your
strategy and pile up the damage.

Battle begins - stick Shion behind Kosmos (you only have the girls for this
fight!) and begin casting Boost 1 on Kosmos. Kosmos should use Down Force on
both Sky Fish - doing so will reduce damage output by them to a manageable 10
dmg per attack. Kosmos will again be assigned the role of punch bag due to her
stats, which are higher than Shion's. Minotaur uses Diffusion more often, so
why bother healing two people, when just one is enough?

First order of business is to get rid of both Sky Fish once their STR has been
decreased. With the two out of the way, only Minotaur remains, throwing its
poor Diffusions and Bolts. Once Minotaur's HP is 460 or lower, there's a
chance that Minotaur will cboost and use that turn to charge for Pulse, which
will be used on Minotaur's next *regular* turn (that means that if you see
another boost or cboost by Minotaur, it won't use it to release Pulse). You
think it's a strong attack? It's nothing healing couldn't take care of. Bolt
and Diffusion are no longer used, all that's left from Minotaur's repertoire
of attacks is charging for Pulse and using it on next regular turn. Kosmos'
Rcannon is the most powerful means of assault you can use at this moment. As
always, don't forget to kill the boss on ESL with point bonus (with help of
Shion's Boost 1 that shouldn't pose a problem).

I will call this place room 1. When Ziggurat is under your control, roam
around for a while - save your game and blow stuff up under the window on E
side for SCOPE and 2x ETHER UPGRADE S. Use both Upgrades on Ziggurat and have
him learn Bodyguard and Recharge ethers. Now approach the exit for a scene.
Stuff always stops working when you least need it. You're now in room 2, left
half.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE119.jpg

You need to make your way around the soldiers, but without them noticing you.
You do so by sneaking behind their backs AND holding down R2 - this will cause
Ziggurat to walk instead of run. If you accidentally engage in battle, use
Escape Pack, for now you're better off not fighting. Make your way to room 2,
right half.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE120.jpg

Blow up stuff the crate above you and then destroy the wall behind the crate.
You can collect 2x REVIVE from the crate below you, then enter the hole we
made. You'll climb some stairs and reach SEGAD 4 (destroy the stonewall) and a
chest with SNAKE HUNTER inside.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE121.jpg

Now use Skill Upgrade S or Z (you got it from Minotaur, remember) on Ziggurat
and have him extract Poison Guard from Snake Hunter, then set that skill. You
no longer need to worry about being affected with poison. Back downstairs and
make your way E across the room to reach the chapel. There's not much you can
really do but cross the bridge to the E.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE122.jpg

Room 3 - there's a tough mech down there - fighting it not yet recommended.
Instead examine the switch and operate it to draw AGWS' attention (notice the
chest that fell out!). Now climb down the ladder and go right - a scene issues
and a fight against two U-TIC soldiers. Piece of cake. After the scene take
lower left exit from prison cells, go down the stairs, bust up Cyber Crab
combo here, and collect 2x VEIL from the chest you knocked down before. Make
your way to SE corner of this room and take the exit. You've reached the
monitoring room corridor.

Step in the small room on your left and blow all crates except SW one for
ETHER PACK S, BIO SPHERE, MED KIT S, 100 G, REVIVE. SW crate has a pair of
Cyber Crabs for dismantling, if you need EXP (use yellow can a bit back to
gain advantage). Now enter the monitoring room. After short scene touch the
mech...

- All enemies have weakness against lightning attacks.
- Gardis M1 can counter boost.
------------------------------ GARDIS M1 ATTACKS ----------------------------
1. Assault Unit Fire! - summons two Gardis F10
2. Mental Incapacitater S - VS vanguard - induces EATK down
------------------------------ GARDIS F10 ATTACKS ---------------------------
1. Laser Blast E/B - VS one chr - beam etd
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

The only damage Ziggurat will be receiving is from F10's Laser Blast (around
30 dmg). M1 has no offensive capabilities whatsoever, except for calling its
buddies, which are very weak. All in all, this boss isn't extremely
challenging and you will be able to own it with no problems.

First move to do is guard on first turn. Then attack M1 with triangle,
triangle, Lightning Fist combo. M1 will cboost and release two F10. Destroying
either is a waste of time, as M1 will simply replace lost buddies with new
ones. Instead concentrate your assault on M1.

If M1 receives damage when two F10 are out, it will use Mental Incapacitater
on the next turn - this decreases chr's EATK, meaning Ziggurat's Fist will not
be so effective anymore. Inspite of that, his Fist is still more useful to be
used than Kick - latter is fire type, while former is lightning type, and M1 is
weak to lightning.

While wearing down M1's HP, take note not to allow *your* HP to be gone. Heal
yourself with Recharge or use Med Kit S to recover 150 HP. You can take about
five hits from Laser Blast attacks before healing becomes mandatory. Don't
forget to kill M1 on ESL with point bonus! Killing M1 also cancels F10 buddies.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! ************************


You now have access to the chest with MASTER KEY SI inside. Backtrack to
prison cells (killing stuff on the way for EXP) and unlock the rightmost door.
Momo joins the party. Immediately place her behind Ziggurat using Formation
command in main menu. Doing so will allow Ziggurat to increase both STR and
VIT by casting Bodyguard. Leftmost cell has a crate with SPEED STIM inside,
while middle cell contains the save point. Let's go kill the AGWS we
'tricked' before...

----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. 'Swipe' - VS one chr - phd
2. Absolute Defense - on itself - if attacked, first hit does no damage
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - 'swipe' deals up to 150 dmg! Whoa - but
we'll remedy that in a heartbeat. Momo is behind Ziggurat and immediately
casts Sheep Beam on Merc - it goes in the dreamland. Meanwhile Ziggurat casts
Bodyguard, then guards, and finishes by unleashing Kick combo. This will wake
Merc up, but just follow up by another Momo's Sheep Beam. If by a small chance
Merc does get to attack, you can fix missing HP by using Life Shot ether from
Momo.

One thing to look out for - when Merc has less than 75% HP, it'll begin using
Absolute Defense. Don't attack it during this turn, put it to sleep instead.
If attack is used anyway, first hit deals no damage, while remaining deal
minimal dmg - but Merc will now cboost and deal severe damage to Ziggurat. So
what's left to do? Nothing really, simply keep putting Merc to sleep and
attack it with Kick combo. Soon Merc falls.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! ************************


For victory you recover DECODER 4 SI. Now save your game again and make haste
to monitoring room. After the scene have Ziggy examine the red button on the
panel - doing so unlocks the door leading to the sewers. Go there and familiar
chase is on (remember the similar scene from certain Square game?). Don't run
in green sludge as it slows Ziggy down. 2nd crate you come across can be
destroyed for MED KIT, then take the passageway leading N to find yourself in
the chapel.

Blow stuff up for 2x ETHER PACK and ETHER PACK S, then open the chest for
ETHER UPGRADE Z. Now go back to the sewers and continue W - items in crates
you'll come across consist of REVIVE and ETHER PACK S. Think it is worth the
effort? Your call. Anyhow, you will soon reach the ladder leading outside...

BOSS BATTLE - ZOLFO TYPE 1 + 2x MERCURIO TYPE 2 (all are M enemy type)
------------------------------- ZOLFO STATISTICS ----------------------------

-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Zolfo has weakness against lightning attacks.
- All enemies can counter boost.
-------------------------------- ZOLFO ATTACKS ------------------------------
1. Grenade Launcher P - VS one chr - piercing phd
2. Why are you sleeping!? - if Merc is sleeping on Zolfo's turn, latter may
   attack it and deal some phd to sleeping Merc
3. 'Defend' - on itself - if attacked, will counter by Launcher
------------------------------- MERCURIO ATTACKS ----------------------------
1. 'Shoot' - VS one chr - phd
2. I-I'm sorry, sir! - if Merc is sleeping on Zolfo's turn, latter may attack
   it and deal some phd to Merc
3. 'Defend' - on itself - if attacked, will counter by 'shoot'
4. Anti-lightning shield destroyed!
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Damage output report is as follows: 'shoot' 60 dmg, Launcher 90 dmg, both to
one chr. Launcher can hit even the chr in rearguard, so Momo isn't completely
safe. Taking down these trio seems like a tough job... but not if I can help
it. Place Momo behind Ziggy and have him do Bodyguard - Momo follows by
casting Sheep Beam on either Mercurio (Zolfo can't be put to sleep, so avoid
wasting turns!).

Ziggy guards on next turn, while Momo casts Sheep Beam on other Merc. By now
it's quite possible that Ziggy took some damage, so remedy that by Life Shot
or Med Kit S. Anyway, why are we putting Mercs to sleep? On Zolfo's turn, it's
a 50% probability that it will waste its turn to attack sleeping Merc, dealing
around 120 dmg to it, thus helping you to victory. If you would like to be
completely safe, have Ziggy constantly guard, recovering Momo's EP as need be
or to heal her/both. Momo's job is to keep putting Mercs to sleep until
they're killed by Zolfo (each Merc sustains about 5-6 hits before it's scrap
metal).

Only Zolfo remains - pummel it with Punch combo, taking care to be healed in
time. After losing half HP, Zolfo may acquire defensive stance. Cease
attacking, or else it will cboost and inflict additional damage, not counting
its regular turn. Wait until its next turn when it will lower the guard and
let it have it with Punch combo.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! ************************


Battle ends - explore the fenced in area for 2x BIO SPHERE and 8x MED KIT S.
There's a door in NE corner of this small area, leading to Command Center with
a save point. Right on. Save, then take N exit to room 2, left half.
Immediately run left - if the guard spots you, kill it, for you're more than
capable of kicking his sorry ass. Anyway, make your way ot SEGAD 4 and collect
THIEF RING. One last thing before we escape from this area...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE123.jpg

Blow up this statue and collect DECODER 11 SI from the chest. You're likely to
engage in one or two battles, and some EXP can't hurt. Return and stop by the
save in Command Center. I recommend gathering enough TPTS to invest into
Ziggy's Kick or Fist to be set in HI slot. If you don't wish to do that,
invest TPTS into raising his EDEF. When set, depart for room 1...

BOSS BATTLE - MR LEADER (B enemy type)
---------------------------------- STATISTICS -------------------------------
HP   | EXP   | G  | TPT | EPT | SPT | STR | VIT | ETK | EDF | DEX | EVA | AGL
820  | 2400  |3000| 58  | 60  | 26  | 40  | 27  | 30  | 20  | 16  | 18  | 11

Red Ring                              | Purple Ring
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. 'Swipe 1' - VS one chr - phd
2. 'Swipe 2' - VS one chr - phd
3. Spirit Rain [Lightning Phoenix] - on himself - absorbs light dmg for 1 turn
4. Spirit Rain [Fire Dragon] - on himself - absorbs fire dmg for 1 turn
5. Rune Blade E - VS one chr - etd, pushes hit chr in rearguard
6. Hell's Crest E - VS all chrs - etd
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - 'swipe 1' deals up to 70 dmg, 'swipe 2' up
to 100 dmg, Rune Blade 100 dmg - these attacks hit one chr. Crest hits all
chrs for around 60 dmg. To top it off, Margulis is extremely fast and will
often get two turns between one Ziggy's. You should know that this battle can
be lost, but you will not get game over. Still, EXP and PTS reward is hefty,
so why not try to win this battle?

Standard procedure applies by now - Momo behind Ziggy, latter Bodyguard! Momo
should and must heal Ziggy each and every turn. If Ziggy has Kick or Punch in
HI slot, use the relevant TATK every turn, only stopping by to recast
Bodyguard or using Recharge in case Momo can't heal him fast enough. If
Ziggy's TATK have LOW speed, you'll have to guard on one, then combo on next
turn. If you've been collecting items following my guide, you must have Stim
lying in your inventory. Use it on Ziggy for huge STR boost - each of PATK I
used against the boss dealt at least 100 dmg, with Kick adding in 400 dmg!
Avoid using ETATK, as boss is fairly resistant against them.

Few turns later in the fight boss expands his attack repertoire - you're
likely to see Rune Blade first. Take the damage, but Ziggy won't be pushed
back, as Momo is behind him. After taking some hits, boss may decide to use
Phoenix or Dragon on himself. Besides wasting a turn this allows the boss to
absorb relevant damage until his next turn - if Phoenix was cast, avoid using
Fist, and if Dragon was cast, Kick is a no-no. One final attack must be
mentioned - Hell's Crest, which hits all chrs, so heal afterwards. As always
by now, try killing the boss on point bonus ESL (use the help of Ziggy's BG,
which will be 2 or 3 guaranteed).

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Shion starts in the gally. Take the SW exit and talk to the robot behind the
counter to receive CARD PASSPORT SI. Now go N to reach the passenger area -
email 16 will arrive with EVS PLUG-IN (allows you to replay previously visited
maps - make sure to read the instructions carefully!). Find beverage
dispensers located on E side of passenger area - MAIL 17 will arrive. It's a
response to your investment earlier in the game, where I suggested you invest
in Vector. Your dividend will be as follows:

- Hasegawa investment: 5x MED KIT S
- Vector investment: 5x ETHER PACK S
- Dawson investment: 5x REVIVE

Additionally, all merchandise costs at *item* shops are now down for 10%. Make
sure to download the attachment that came with the mail. Going N will take you
to a cross - N one leads to Elsa's bridge, W one goes to airlock, and E one
leads to a UMN point, which has a save point and new feature. A silver floating
block which acts like a shop. Now enter S cabin room and collect DISARM KEY SI.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE124.jpg

You can rest for free in N cabin by talking to the robot found inside. Now
back in the passenger area go W and enter the elevator to reach B1. Go N, blow
up stuff to get ETHER PACK, past the cargo elevator, MAIL 18 arrives, enter
the door with red light above, blow up stuff for MED KIT, 2x ETHER UPGRADE S &
MED KIT (ignore the ladder here). Back outside continue S past the emergency
switch, and in next room blow down two wall decors to reveal a passageway
leading to 50 G and ETHER UPGRADE A. Go W, down the stairs, collect 200 G and
150 G from the crates, and finally take W door.

A save point room. Save your progress, than take N door. Blow up two panels to
reveal SEGAD 8...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE125.jpg

Then operate the console to your right - doing so will use Disarm Key. Examine
the console again and press the switch - bridge ahead is now complete - take E
part to obtain 200 G, then stroll down W part to another area with 50 G, BIO
SPHERE, DECODER 10 SI and SPIRIT PENDANT. Back to the 4cross bridge, and take
N part now. At cross go left and collect 5x ETHER UPGRADE A, MED KIT & BIO
SPHERE. Go back to the cross and take right path now. You will come across the
door (which leads to a ladder we ignored before), but just continue W to reach
catapult room.

In here mow down stuff and collect: ETHER UPGRADE S, 100 G, 150 G, FIBER SUIT.
You'll also discover SEGAD 14.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE126.jpg

Go back to the save room I mentioned earlier, and this time take S exit to
reach AGWS room. On W side are three crates with 5x ETHER UPGRADE A. Robot on
the N side sells AGWS parts, and offers upgrade options as well. If you wish,
buy new frame and generator for Shion's AGWS, but I'll own the next boss
without the need for AGWS. There's more to do on S part of Elsa - take the
door leading to hangar room. At the very S end is a chest with COAT BEAM. Now
return to AGWS room and use left mini-elevator to reach SE exit, which goes to
Kosmos' recharge room.

After the scenes go to AGWS room - Matthews will call in. Before going at
Elsa's bridge, find Tony here and agree to help him. Now go all the way back
to ship's restaurant - when you're there, walk S and MAIL 19 will arrive. Back
to passenger area, enter S cabin and stand like this...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE127.jpg

MAIL 20 is yours. Before going to Elsa's bridge, drop by the save point to the
E. Look, a save has been 'upgraded' - you'll see a blue EVS sign attached on
the save point - you can now revisit old dungeons to get items you forgot to
collect earlier. I also recommend buying new equipment for all party members.
If you're lacking cash, use the EVS plug-in to revisit old areas with human
enemies and fight them to gain cash.

Now visit Matthews on the bridge. After the scene talk to him to get HAZARDOUS
AREA MAP SI. Back to the UMN point - on your way MAIL 21 arrives. Reply by
investing 1000 G and selecting [I will invest in Venture Link]. This will be
marked as MAIL 22. Before departing for the catapult room, return to AGWS room
and speak with Tony again - when he sees Shion has the map, he'll spit out MED
KIT DX. Now go to the catapult room we've been to before. Go all the way N and
examine the console to trigger a scene. Hmmm...?

When returning to Elsa's bridge, MAIL 23 arrives. MAIL 24 follows immediately
- reply by choosing [Cargo Ship Seems Suspicious]. This will be labeled as
MAIL 25. Return to UMN point and save your game, then go to the bridge.
Peacetime is over, lady!!!

When in control, outfit your chrs with new armor you've purchased. Now use all
Ether Upgrade items you've collected on Shion and have her transfer Medica All
ether to both Kosmos and chaos. Go down to B1 using the elevator from
passenger area. Note that crates, panels and whatnot have been restocked.

Once in B1, move up, collect ETHER PACK and go E. Your lead chr will activate
the switch and electrified floor, capturing the auto-mechs. Enter N door and
collect ETHER PACK, ESCAPE PACK & BIO SPHERE. Use the ladder to climb down,
then approach the S door. Control switches over to Ziggy and Momo.

Engage in few fights to gain valuable EXP. Collect 5x SKILL UPGRADE A,
ANTIDOTE, ETHER UPGRADE S, ETHER UPGRADE A, ETHER UPGRADE S & ANTIDOTE. Use
the stairs to get out of catapult room and then follow the path. Parties unite
- remove White Ring from Ziggy and equip it on Kosmos. Make your party Kosmos,
Shion, chaos. Go down, then around the corner and past the bridge. Lure the
robot in yellow can's vicinity, and kill the enemies. Then collect FRAME REPAIR
A, SKILL UPGRADE S & ANTIDOTE. Go to the slide bridge and take W branch to
reach this loot: ANTIDOTE, ETHER PACK, FRAME REPAIR A, MED KIT S. E branch of
the bridge leads to BIO SPHERE. Now take S branch and fight few more enemies.
Take S exit and you'll reach Lab 1 with the save point.

Use the switch to disable the electro-floor if you wish, then take E exit.
Kill the next enemy, then collect ESCAPE PACK and 2x SKILL UPGRADE A, up the
stairs, collect MED KIT S, go left, kill two enemies, blow down wall panels,
collect ESCAPE PACK, and proceed further left for ETHER UPGRADE S & ESCAPE
PACK. Return to Lab 1 and save your game. Now use all Ether Upgrades you've
found again on Shion and have her transfer Boost 1 to chaos. You need to make
it past AGWS room to Elsa's hangar, which is located on S-most part of the
ship. When you enter the room, short scene will follow. Make Kosmos vanguard,
with Shion and chaos being in rearguard. At this point I was LV11 with all
three chrs.

BOSS BATTLE - DOMO CARRIER (M enemy type)

---------------- ITEM ------------------------------ RARE ITEM --------------
Anti-Beam Armor                       | none
-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Carrier has weakness against lightning attacks.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. Analyzing Event Slot - analysis written in boss strategy
2. Tremor P - VS all chrs - phd
3. Laser Rifle E/B - BATT VS one chr - beam etd
4. Auto-Repair - on itself - recovers 600 HP
5. Self-Destruct E - VS all chrs - etd
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - Tremor deals up to 300 dmg to all chrs (if
critical occurs), Laser Rifle 80 to one, and if it self-destructs, you're
looking at around 100 dmg to all. First thing you need to keep eyes peeled out
for is Analyzing Event Slot move of Carrier. For example, if first event slot
will be point bonus slot, Carrier will copy that piece of info in its memory.
From now on, whenever Carrier gets a turn where ESL has point bonus, Carrier
will use Tremor, a devastating attack which heavily damages all chrs. Luckily
Tremor heavily delays Carrier's next move, giving you ample time to recover -
since all three fighting chrs know Medica All, recovery isn't a problem.

Regardless of your setup, Tremor will be used as Carrier's first attack. Shion
and chaos heal the party, while Kosmos launches Rcannon. Now have both Shion
and chaos cast Boost 1 on Kosmos on next turn, then have them execute Boost 1
on themselves, until their BG counts 3 (maximum value). PAY ATTENTION NOW!
Carefully observe ESL - if it looks like this:
  ATTACKER             EVENT SLOT
  Kosmos               Critical+
  chaos                Boost Gauge+
  Carrier              Point Bonus

You'd see that Carrier will get an attack on point bonus ESL. Avoid that at
all costs by boosting one of your own chrs (as you've taught Boost 1 to two
fighting chrs, this isn't a problem) - doing so will prompt boosted chr to act
before Carrier's turn, making its turn to land on ESL which it didn't record
to memory.

If you manage to prevent Carrier to reach memorized ESL slot, you've got an
easy battle on your hand. Carrier's remaining attack is crappy Laser Rifle -
Kosmos will take the damage, but simply heal her by Shion's or chaos' ethers.
Nevertheless, Carrier has two more tricks up its sleeve - when it has 600 or
less HP remaining and it reaches regular turn, it'll use Auto-Repair and
restore 600 HP to itself. How to work your way around that? Quite easy, boosts
will be your friends again. Once you feel pretty confident about messing with
ESL slot, preventing Carrier from using Tremor and Carrier soon having less
than 600 HP & your fighters have 2 or 3 BG, move both Shion and chaos to
vanguard.

Now start boosting and releasing attacks against Carrier. I'm sure that in 8-
10 attacks you'll get in before Carrier you will inflict sufficient amount of
damage before Carrier is able to recover it. The other trick Carrier has is
using Self-Destruct on its regular turn once it has 200 or less HP remaining.
This will kill Carrier, but at the same time damage all your chrs, so do take
care of being in top shape.

After the attack is over, your party consists of Shion, Ziggy and Momo. Your
job is to show them around the ship - great. You start in the restaurant - go
to the galley, then passenger room (here enter both cabins - make sure you
REFUSE when asked to go to sleep!), then go to Elsa's bridge. Go to the save
point and make use of the EVS feature to enter Kosmos' sim and make your way
to SEGAD 10 to collect 2x BOOSTER PACK inside. Back to Elsa.

Use the elevator in passenger room to reach B1. Head for the catapult room -
after the scene make way to N part of the catapult room for MAIL 26 to arrive.
Reply by [I Will Invest in Vector] - this will be labeled as MAIL 27. Now make
your way to Lab 1, where the save point is. Lab 1 will become Ziggy's
residence. When given control, try to exit the room thru N doors - MAIL 28
arrives. Your dividends are here!

- Tesla investment: 6000 G
- CUDC investment: 2x SPEED STIM
- Venture Link Investment: 4000 G + 10% off any AGWS weapons

When reading is complete, show Ziggy and Momo the remaining rooms, which are
Lab 2 (Kosmos' residence), AGWS hangar, and S-most hangar. When you're done,
return to passenger room and enter S cabin, then agree to go to sleep.

Win the easy battle and next scenes unfold. You'll begin in Durandal's hangar,
where you can save your game. Then hop thru the opening and descend -
afterwards take S route past dead Utic-soldier and take E exit. Collect
ANTIDOTE, MED KIT S, 2x TECH UPGRADE A & 2x ETHER UPGRADE A. Go E until you
reach a branch in the path. Go S a bit and on the way stop by in a small
closed area with the generator - blow it up. Walk past now disabled laser line
and blow up the second generator - blowing up the wall panel will produce some
soldiers. I wonder how could he fit in such a small place. Now both lasers are
disabled, so walk around and press this switch...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE128.jpg

Two S doors open, so walk down and past the big brown door with '4' on it.
Collect 2x SKILL UPGRADE A and continue S. Kill two ambush wannabes, and
proceed further. Enter the door you'll come across for 2x FRAME REPAIR A, then
go back outside and waltz till the end of the line. Look, another door.
There's a display with '4' on it, and a shiny button underneath. Operate it
and blastdoor 4 will open.

Go past the door, and then N at the cross. Examine the dead soldier leaned
against the blastdoor 3 and then chat with 3 friendly soldiers which are
located to the S. Blow down the panels nearby and collect BIO SPHERE & CURE-
ALL. To the S you'll find blastdoor 5, which can't be opened yet. You should
be interested in the W door leading to crew quarters, where a save point is
located. Back outside now take E exit - mow down the plants for 2x SKILL
UPGRADE A & 2x TECH UPGRADE A.

Look, another door. Don't examine it yet, as it is trapped. If you do, you'll
have to fight some soldiers. Walk past it and destroy the panel in order to
blow up the security on the door. Inside the room you'll find captured
Utic-soldier being questioned by two Durandal members. To find the location of
Card No. 3, talk to your men in this order: right, left, left, right, left,
right, right, left, right, right, left (other orders may apply, but this is how
I got the info I need).

Back outside, past the second door (also secured), blow up the panel connected
to the door and enter it. Inside you'll fall into battle against a soldier -
when defeated, he'll board Zolfo AGWS. Nothing serious. After the battle blow
up NE part of the room for 2x SKILL UPGRADE A and...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE129.jpg

SEGAD 11. We also have the relevant Decoder, so collect COAT ICE. Walk back to
previous room and exit. Continue S until you reach third door leading E -
you'll need a keycard for this door. Collect 5x ETHER UPGRADE and go W now -
another two wannabe ambushes. After you kill them, take W doors - you're now
on the other side of blastdoor 5. Enter nearby control room and release the
lock by pressing the switch under monitor with '5' on it. Back out of the room
take a hike S to reach AGWS hangar.

On your current level collect CURE-ALL to the right, then descend the stairs.
Down here blow up stuff and nab FRAME REPAIR A, ETHER UPGRADE S & 2x SKILL
UPGRADE A. Don't forget TECH UPGRADE Z from the chest. Kill a friend who has
come to play. Go back upstairs and cross the bridge - kill two bozos who
pretend to be 'guarding' and go S until end of corridor. Step thru W door and
nab CARD NO 3 SI...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE130.jpg

Back to previous corridor, now go N and make use of E door you passed before.
Collect U-TIC CARD SI from the chest inside - notice the T-ELOS reference on
the board (yeah, more sexy androids). Cyber Crabs will now roam around. Return
to blastdoor 5, but don't go thru, instead take a E and go to the door we need
U-TIC card for. First stand next to the card reader and examine it - doing so
will open the door. Obtain DECODER 16 SI.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE131.jpg

Now backtrack to control room for blastdoor 3 and enter it. First examine the
green flashing button in order to use Card No 3 - this unlocks the switch
control under monitor with '3' on it. Return to crew quarters to save the
game, then make your way N past blastdoor 3 until you reach the ship's bridge.

Frame Repair Z                        | B-MAX Circuit

- Ambix can counter boost.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. 'Missile Launcher' - VS all chrs - phd
2. Booster Output Down xx% [Counter rate xx%]
3. 'Machinegun' - VS all chrs - phd
4. Booster Recovered xx% [Counter rate xx%]
5. 'Beam laser' - BATT VS one chr - beam etd
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - 'Missile' deals about 80 dmg to all,
'Machinegun' 50 dmg to all, 'laser' up to 200 dmg to one. If Ambix is hit with
slash type attack, its counter rate will drop by 50% first time, then 25%.
After taking more damage, it will start to recover its counter rate - first
it'll rise to 50%, then to full. While Ambix' cboost % is dropping, it'll
counter by 'machinegun'. Once Ambix has less than 600 HP, its cboost will
recover when hit by slash attacks - its counter in this state is 'beam laser'.

Anyway, start the battle by having Jr cast Psycho Arm on himself, while Mary
guards and Soldier attacks. Doing so will reduce Ambix' counter %, allowing
you to hit it more often withour fear of retaliation. Don't worry about Mary
and Soldier getting KO-ed, this is the last battle you'll have them with you.
Soldier will likely get KO-ed due to its very crappy armor, but Mary will hold
her own for quite a while.

Jr guards on next turn to gain 6 AP, while Mary unleashes W-ACT for nice
damage. If need be, have Jr heal himself with Med Kit S! When given chance,
use Moonlit Serenade against Ambix which will deal huge damage. Mary continues
to guard and W-ACT on next turn until Ambix is defeated. If you think you'll
be in crisis, command Jr to board his AGWS - doing so ensures your victory
against the tincan.

Okay, Shion's yours. Try to leave the bridge - MAIL 29 arrives. Kosmos now has
new TATK called Rdrill. Now go save, then make your way to Lab 1 and collect
Ziggy. Now backtrack to Elsa's airlock and enter Dock Colony. Time to
explore...

Talk to the woman in brown in front the dock clinic multiple times to learn
about Fish Detector. You can't get that yet until later in the game. Now enter
the clinic - one of the nurses here can recover HP and EP for free, and
there's a girl named Luty here, who will be important for one subquest (later
in the game). Talk to her with Shion - doctor will mention Ariadne Flower...
but where could you get one?

Exit the clinic and enter the shop 'Talk to me'. Time to purchase armor and
weapons. Buy the following stuff:
- weapons: Navy Gloves, Metal Rod and MSP89SX
- armor: 4x Stylish Armor, DUnit V3, VOLG20, 4x Space Helmet, 3x Guard Pendant

Again, I don't invest anything in AGWS, due to my reasons stated earlier in
the walkthru. Be sure to talk to the kid named Tom here multiple times until
he starts repeating himself. There's a set of stairs leading further down to
another room. Blow up the stuff to get access to SEGAD 2.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE132.jpg

Nothing else of interest here, so go back outside. Continue walking S until a
scene in which you'll see Hammer run off. Now GO BACK to the clinic - DO NOT
advance yet! When you get to the clinic, run between two rows of seats in
waiting room for MAIL 30 to arrive. Now go back to the path you were descending
before and continue along the path until you run into Hammer.

Shion will be in Lab 1. Try exiting thru N exit - MAIL 31 arrives. Now make
your way to the elevator leading to passenger area - as you get near it, MAIL
32 arrives. It contains Fbshot subweapon for Kosmos (but only if you've
invested in the companies I've told you to). Make sure you download the
attachment to get the weapon available for equipping. Now visit the UMN spot
on Elsa, save your game, then go to the bridge and talk to Matthews to depart.

                            MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fairy enemies you'll meet here are annoying for putting your chrs to sleep.
But you'll soon find a helmet that will allow you to extract the skill. Make
your party Shion, Kosmos and chaos. Save at nearby save point and commence the
search. Blow up few rocks and obtain ANTIDOTE and NIGHTWALKER. Immediately
extract Sleep Guard skill from this helmet and set it. ADVANCE SLOWLY AND
CAREFULLY. This is a long dungeon and next saving chance is a long shot away.
Use beam attacks against Cerberus, spirit attacks against Ogre, near attacks
against Fairy. As final boss of this dungeon relies heavily on ether attacks,
we shall upgrade our EDEF, but wait until I suggest so.

Go N and engage Cerberus. Go more N for a dead end with BIO SPHERE. Backtrack
a bit and go NE for next Cerberus engagement. You'll reach next screen. Follow
the path, dispatch Cerberus and proceed, until scene kicks in. Take the path
under two crushed stones and nab NEURO STIM, then continue E until you see
Fairy and Cerberus. Try to lure one of them in yellow can trap. You'll find
another Cerberus and Fairy up ahead. At the intersection go N first - when you
find yourself behind the sign, mow it down and nab COAT FIRE from the chest.
Then return to the cross and take S path to reach another screen.

Approach the building with few neon signs and blow up the door. Climb the
ladder and go across the bridge. Kill Cerberus, then collect CURE-ALL, REVIVE
DX & REVIVE. Now return down the ladder - when outside the building, take S
path, kill Cerberus, and blow up two crates on the end. Now take path leading
N from the building. Kill Fairy on the way - when you get to the end of the
path, step on the elevator and take it down, granting you access further.
You'll encounter another Fairy before exit to next screen is reached.

Move up the path and kill Cerberus. Climb the stairs and put Momo to be the
lead chr, ie the one who appears running around. Examine this 'closet'...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE133.jpg

Momo will learn TATK Magic Caster and learn ether Star Wind. When you collect
the loot, move right until you see some debris. Blow it away and bridge will
be formed, making access to a weird enemy. Leave the chum breathing for a
while, we'll come to kill him later when we save our progress. Take the path
below the stairs and follow it - kill Cerberus, then blow up next debris
blocking path forward. After long trek engage Ogre. Further down collect ETHER
PACK S and MED KIT S. Next screen's access!

Go E and engage Ogre, further E lure Fairy near red can, take S descend, and
finally walk right past another Fairy to much sought after save point. Now
that our progress is saved, train a bit around here and reach LV15 with Shion,
Kosmos and chaos. Then save again and make your party Momo, Kosmos and Shion.
Have Shion tranfer Boost 1 to Momo as well, while Momo transfers Life Shot to
Shion (they'll both need respective ether). Also have Momo set Star Wind ether
and upgrade Caster's speed to HI, so Momo can steal twice in battle. If you
don't have enough TPTS, fight battles and make sure you kill enemies with
point bonus ESL. Now return to the bridge we formed earlier and engage...

BOSS BATTLE - SVAROZIC (G enemy type)
---------------------------------- STATISTICS -------------------------------
HP   | EXP   | G  | TPT | EPT | SPT | STR | VIT | ETK | EDF | DEX | EVA | AGL

---------------- ITEM ------------------------------ RARE ITEM --------------
Tech Upgrade S                        | Tech Upgrade Z
-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Svarozic has weakness against ice attacks.
- Svarozic can boost and counter boost.
- Svarozic absorbs 50% of fire damage as HP recovery.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. Heat Wave E/F - FATT VS one chr - fire etd
2. Hell Cannon E/F - FATT VS one chr - fire etd
3. Flame Crusher P/F - FATTP VS one chr - fire phd
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - Heat Wave 200 dmg to one, Hell Cannon 50
dmg to one, Crusher 140 dmg to one. Svaro can only attack one chr at a time,
and it doesn't possess any hit-all attacks.

Make your party Momo, Kosmos and Shion. Place Shion in rearguard. Momo uses
Star Wind on her first turn and uses Magic Caster twice to steal Tech Upgrade
Z and S from the boss (we set it in HI slot, remember?). Equip Coat Fire on
Kosmos, as she will be our main attacker. Have Kosmos employ her Rblade each
turn (must be set to HI slot). Any of Svaro's possible cboosts will most
likely be launched against blue-haired android, making her suffer. But this is
what we have Shion here for - to be assigned healing duty.

Anyway, after Momo steals both items, move her to rearguard as well. Now have
Momo provide boosts for Kosmos, while Shion heals Kosmos taking care she
doesn't get KO-ed. As we've equipped Kosmos with Coat Fire, she won't take as
much damage. It's also possible to cast Down Force on Svaro, further
decreasing some of its offensive capabilities.

But still, beware! Svaro has high % of cboosting and messing Kosmos' turns up.
Once its HP hits 50% or lower, Svaro's probability to use boosts increases. It
is therefore imperative that Momo provides boosts for Kosmos as well, so that
she can interrupt Svaro's mad rush. Soon Svaro falls...
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! ************************


Nab TUNED CIRCUIT from the chest, then backtrack to the save point infront of
the mall and save your progress. Keep the party as it is, for next foe awaits
us soon. Enter the mall and collect FRAME REPAIR A & 2x SKILL UPGRADE A. Give
Kosmos Coat Lightning, then engage the enemy!

2. Zeus Cannon E/L - LATT VS one chr - light etd

Let's discuss damage output first - Wave 200 dmg to one, Cannon 60 dmg to one,
Crusher 140 dmg to one.

Make your party Momo, Kosmos and Shion. Place Shion in rearguard. Momo uses
Star Wind on her first turn and uses Magic Caster twice to steal Ether Upgrade
Z and S from the boss (we set it in HI slot, remember?). Kosmos will once
again be our main attacker. Have her employ her Rblade each turn (must be set
to HI slot). Any of Perun's possible cboosts will most likely be launched
against blue-haired android, making her suffer. But this is what we have Shion
here for - to be assigned healing duty.

Go up the stairs and make a stop in plant store. Defeat Hydra...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE134.jpg

...for DECODER 15 SI, then examine the shop's back to find FLOWER SEED SI.
Exit the store and take the door close by. You'll be on the catwalk of the
storage room. Walk around and kill Cerberus on the way. When on next screen,
ignore the elevator leading down and proceed further. We're outside the mall.
Walk down the slope, then turn left and kill Ogre, then blow up the rocks and
collect CURE-ALL & 500 G. Walk E, kill Fairy, then blow up the door and nab
REJUVENATOR. Now walk S, and at the cross take right path first. Kill Fairy
and nail CLOCK SHIELD from the crate. Equip Kosmos with Clock Shield and Coat
Ice. Now return and take left path to reach next boss...

Cannon, which carries slow status (if you've equipped Kosmos with Clock

Nab DECODER 9 SI. Return to previous cross and take SE path. Proceed further
(past the point where the crate with Clock Shield was), destroy another crate
you'll come across for REVIVE and kill Ogre. This is all of the item
collection for now. It's time for us to level up for a bit. Return to last
known save point before entering the mall (you'll need to pass Cerberus fight
to do so). When your progress is saved, return to the elevator we ignored
before and travel down, then take the exit to the right to reach storage room.

Here you can fight Unicorns for some great EXP and PTS. Blow stuff up and
collect BIO SPHERE, SKILL UPGRADE A, 2x TECH UPGRADE A, CURE-ALL, 2x ETHER
UPGRADE A, ETHER PACK S, 5x SKILL UPGRADE A, MED KIT DX, 100 G, 500 G, 2x
SKILL UPGRADE A, CURE-ALL, 200 G. There's MED KIT MAX in the chest, as well as
SEGAD 13.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE136.jpg

Reach LV20 for chaos, Kosmos and Shion. Use the TPTS you've accrued to invest
in their EDEF. Now exit the storage, take the elevator up, go S, down the
slope, turn left, kill Ogre, and blow up the rocks, then walk N for more
scenes. Now enter the tower - make your way N past three Lizardmen and Fairy.
Stuff here that can be destroyed contains REVIVE & 2x FRAME REPAIR A. Pick the
chest to obtain ETHER PACK MAX. Take N exit to reach the 1st floor of the
tower, where save point resides.

Your next objective is to blow up six safety locks in order to get access to
the elevator leading down - tower consists of three levels, with two locks per
level. There's two locks on 1st floor, so blow them up, then enter the NW door
to reach the room with bunch of desks and stairs leading up on E and E side of
this room. Kill Lizardman and two Hydras, then collect FRAME REPAIR Z. There's
MAGICAL HAT hiding here...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE137.jpg

Now climb E stairs and take the door you'll run into. You'll be on 2nd floor
of tower's front. Go left and operate the switch to lower the ladder on other
side of the elevator. Blow up 3rd safety lock, then go back to previous room
and now take W stairs. Here blow up 4th lock, then climb up the ladder to
reach 3rd floor of tower's front, blow up 5th and 6th lock (elevator is now
accessible), and make way right - here destroy the panel, enter the door
and...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE138.jpg

SEGAD 9. There's ROBOT PART RIGHT ARM in the chest inside. We've done all we
can here, now back to 1st floor and save your game. We're about to have a
'tough' boss battle, so following few advices is worthwhile:
- invest TPTS in EDEF
- have all three chrs wear Guard Pendants, equip Magical Hat on Shion
- if not done so already, set your most powerful TATK in HI slots (at this
  time Kosmos Rdrill was more powerful than Rblade, and chaos' Heaven's Wrath
  is lightning based attack)
- and finally check your ether:
  Kosmos: Medica All, Boost 1, Down Force, Life Shot
  chaos: Healing Dew, Medica All, Boost 1, Life Shot
  Shion: Queen's Kiss, Medica All, Boost 1, Life Shot

After preparations are done, save your game again, then use the elevator. You
will reach big circular room with three Lizardmen. Kill them all for EXP and
PTS, then check W side of the room for VEIL. Now head for S part of the room,
where there's a bridge connecting to another elevator. Hm, long ride... At the
bottom head N and then examine the control panel to the right of circular
door. Access is granted - make Kosmos and chaos vanguard, with Shion in
rearguard. Walk thru the door...

Frame Repair A                        | Frame Repair Z
-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Gargoyle has weakness against slash/lightning attacks.
- Oud has weakness against slash attacks.
- Garg can boost.
------------------------------- GARGOYLE ATTACKS ----------------------------
1. Seal of Silence E/S - VS one chr - induces lost
2. Hell's Lance E - VS one chr - etd
3. Obsidian Claw P/S - VS one chr - phd, induces VIT down
4. Powered up after losing servant (1) - explanation in boss strategy
5. Powered up after losing servant (2) - explanation in boss strategy
------------------------------ OUDOGOGUE ATTACKS ----------------------------
1. Hell's Crest E - VS all chrs - etd
2. Unholy Regeneration - on Gargoyle - recovers 600 HP
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Damage output report is as follows: Lance deals 50 dmg (100 after one Oud is
gone, 150 after both are gone), Claw 80 dmg (160, then 240 respectively), and
Crest hits all chrs for around 70 dmg (at EDEF of 35 for your chrs). Each time
Oud is killed, Garg powers up on its next turn - this also improves its
overall stats and it also becomes faster (you'll see when it starts chucking
stuff in your direction). Ouds are resistant to ether dmg, so close quarter
attacks are recommended. After one Oud is gone, Garg gains ability to boost,
meaning one more thing to watch out for.

Beating up on Garg before killing Ouds may be a good idea (for Garg won't be
able to power up), but I should tell you that Ouds have the possibility to
heal Garg once you knock off some of its HP - it will be healed for 600 HP.
Also note that when you kill one of Ouds, Garg's HP cannot be recovered
anymore. BUT DO NOT FORGET TO STEAL BOTH SILVER CROWN AND COMMANDER'S CREST!!!

Your first move is to MAKE SURE YOU CAST KOSMOS' DOWN FORCE ON GARG! Doing so
greatly reduces strength of its Claw attack. One worry is off your back. Now
concentrate your efforts on downing one Oud ASAP - with their AGL of 8 you'll
be seeing lots of Crests and that's not good. Until one Oud is killed, have
Shion cast Medica All, with chaos acting as support. In fact, it may even be
better if both chaos and Shion cast Medica All every turn until one Oud is
gone, using spare turns to replenish their EP or clear lost status, which
comes as a result of Garg's Seal. When one Oud is sayonara, have all three
chrs cast Boost 1 for so long, until their BG equals 3.

When both Ouds are gone, Kosmos will bear most of the attacks - each Claw Garg
will use will hit her. Lance will hit one chr, regardless where that chr is
standing. By damage output paragraph above you'll see that if you manage to
maintaint Kosmos' HP above 350 (just in case boss pulls off a critical
attack), you will not get killed. If not done so already, cast Down Force on
Garg, for its STR can be reduced. Lance can be shrugged off, for its damaging
effects can be quickly cured by Medica All or items.

After your Boost 1 casting session is over and you feel fairly secure in the
fighting field, start boosting your chrs and beating the crap outta Garg,
until it falls defeated.

#M011 ---------- MISSION 11 - EXPLORATION OF DURANDAL & KUKAI --------- #M011
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Shion's yours? Alrightey, head W and MAIL 33 arrives. Walk left again and onto
the next screen. Make sure you walk between the two guards or else MAIL 34
will never arrive. Your receipt has the following:
- ACM invetsment: 4000 G + 10% off AGWS accessories
- Mercedes investment: 8000 G
- Vector: CODE DISARM KEY PLUG-IN + 10% off AGWS accessories

Anyway, your objective is to find Momo, who has ran off to hide somewhere.
Where could she be? Durandal is a huge ship, which consists of six places:
dock, hangar, bridge, residential area, isolation area and park. MAKE SURE YOU
VISIT THE PARK LAST!!! Shion is currently in isolation area, so check the
train and select dock area.

Here take note of the out-of-order door in SW corner. Bridge to the east leads
to Elsa, and there's also a freighter in NE corner which leads to Kukai
Foundation. Problem? We ain't there yet. Anyway, visit UMN point on Elsa and
sell off your barter items (Junked Circuits, Unicorn Horns and that stuff).
You must accrue at least 6000 G, which we will shortly need for another mail.

Now go to residential area. Take a hike W - now go all the way W and enter the
room which contains rest area. There's a robot blocking access to one closet,
however, there's nothing interesting inside. Go back outside, right and then
up - collect BOOSTER PACK & BOOSTER PACK. At the cross go right and enter the
'casino', if I can call it that. Here's a save point, and CASINO PASSPORT SI
in the chest on extreme E. Use the save point and access Woglinde via EVS -
make haste to SEGAD 16 and nab STIM DX inside. Go back to the casino room via
EVS exitpoint.

When you're back in residential area, again hike W as far as you can and enter
another room. Inside collect 2x ETHER UPGRADE A & MED KIT S. Step back outside
and go right, then up. On the way to next cross collect MED KIT DX. At the
cross turn right and enter another room (sigh, how many are there?). Collect
MED KIT DX from the closet and check the silver plate - a shop. You'll see
that they've upgraded their warez a lot, but... DO NOT BUY ANYTHING YET! Go
back outside and pay a visit to NW corner - here collect ETHER PACK S & 2x
ETHER UPGRADE A.

Visiting the bridge yields nothing of interest. Go for the hangar now - in a
corner of first room you'll see a bunch of crates, but the door's locked and a
guy is blocking access. Remember this place for later - instead check the E
door to find second area of the hangar. MAIL 35 has arrived - reply with [I
Will Invest in Alkimia]. Your reply will be assigned as MAIL 36. We're done,
so head for park area.

When you arrive, go up the running stairs and enter either of the two doors.
After the scene go S to exit the observation deck. MAIL 37 arrives - I'm rich!
Go down the running stairs and MAIL 38 arrives - you'll receive CODE DISARM
KEY SUPPORT PLUG-IN, but make sure you download it, as it came as an
attachment. Now head for residential area and as you are walking W, MAIL 39
arrives. Before talking the rest make sure you visit the UMN silver shop point
in residential area to buy following stuff:
- weapons: Rider Gloves, Platinum Rod, ROOK505
- armor: 4x Battle Gear, D Unit V4, VOLG30, few Space Helmets if you wish
  (buying the acc they're offering is optional, but for skill completionists
  buy Sniper Goggles)

Now go to the resting room and choose first option to advance the story. When
Shion's yours, go to the dock area. Go up the running stairs and talk to Jr to
collect members, then go to Elsa and talk to Matthews to go to Dock Colony.
Here go to the clinic and give Flower Seed to Luty. You may want to go check
up on stuff in 'Talk to me' shop - when done, return to Elsa and back to
Durandal. Now board the freighter and depart for Kukai.

Namco, why didn't you include Kosmos in this scene yet? When it's over, try
leaving the beach. MAIL 40 arrives - reply with [Durandal], and this shall be
labeled as MAIL 41. Ziggy rejoins and you appear on the 'world map' of Kukai.
For now enter the SW part of the city, where AGWS shop and academy is located.

Go right and examine the game machine - answer [TALK TO ME], [PROFESSOR],
[SMELLY LOOKING T-SHIRT], [HOLGAR], [LUTY]. PM CARD C is yours - then go down
the stairs in W part. After the scene exit and reenter the room. You'll be
asked to destroy all destroyable stuff in the room - do so, then talk to the
prof. THRONI BLADE ether for Shion is yours (but only if you have Left and
Right Arms of the robot we're assembling).

Back on the world map enter the middle portion, where sectors 26 & 27 are. You
start in 26, so enter Iron Man bar. Talk to people, but most importantly talk
to the gal in lower left corner. To the left on Iron Man is Our Treasure
hotel. Except for the shop and UMN save point not much is happening inside. DO
NOT GO TO SLEEP YET. Instead hike W to enter sector 27.

Go up the stairs and enter door with 'EAST 6' above. Inside blow up the car
and collect ESCAPE PACK. Then CAREFULLY mow down two blue crates in upper
right corner of the room - collect TECH UPGRADE A, and TALK to the pink bug.
If you've talked to Tom at Dock Colony, it will tell you four stories, so make
sure you listen to them all, esp the location of Decoder 1. It will also take
a picture of Shion. Ascend to upper level of this garage and take W door. Go
all the way W to reach the back room of the laundry service.

Go down the stairs and blow up stuff for: 2x ETHER UPGRADE S & 1200 G. There's
SEGAD 3 located here.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE139.jpg

Go down into the next room. Climb the mini ladder next to the laundry machine
and collect PM CARD B from inside.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE140.jpg

Nab FISH DETECTOR SI from these clothes. Then go S to find yourself outside.
Step on the metal catwalk which leads above the bakery shop and enter the door
here. Work your way around so you find yourself on the catwalk again, descend
the ladder and press this switch...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE141.jpg

Now that you're done, head back to sector 26 - as you're about to exit it thru
E arch, MAIL 42 arrives. Head to private beach. Use the Fish Detector and
attempt to get the big fish, which spits out ENGAGEMENT RING SI. Catching two
smaller fish will yield SPEED STIM & MED KIT. Back to Iron Man inn and hand
over the ring to obtain DECODER 8 SI.

Now go to the hotel and speak with the girl to rest. To move on with the
story, you must now return to Elsa and speak with Allen - but before that
return to the park area of Durandal and collect DECODER 1 SI.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE143.jpg

Now we're really done. One last reminder to purchase latest armor for your
chrs, as well as invest any leftover TPTS in strengthening TATK. REMEMBER TO
BUY ALL FOUR CARTRIDGES FOR SHION'S SHOCK BLADE.

                            MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!

Have chaos kill them all. When outside, go right, up and right and enter the
room. Collect EQUIP ITEM from the chest. Now go to the casino room (kill Fed-
soldier on the way) and save your game. Go back outside, go down, kill Fed-
soldier and take a left. Kill Gert and enter the resting room. One of the
closets has ARMORY KEY SI, and you can rest here. Now make your way past Gert
and few packs of Fed-Soldiers to Durandal's Hangar.

Bust up Gert here, then use Armory Key to open the door to munitions area I
told you to remember earlier. Collect FRAME REPAIR Z and MSS540. There's also
DECODER 5 SI in the chest.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE144.jpg

All other areas of Durandal are off limits, so head for dock area. Soldiers
here don't recognize you at first... anyway, bust up Gert below your position
and then go downstairs thru the gate - follow simple path and at the end agree
to jump over. Here go to the slide bridge and unlock SEGAD 8 - at the end
collect ROBOT PART LEFT LEG. Depart for Lab 2 (where Kosmos is) and scene
follows. Aaah, where am I?

Jr, Momo and Ziggy are now yours to command. Save at the nearby save point,
then proceed E. Engage in all battles, as you need EXP and PTS. In the junk
lying around you can find COAT SWORD, 5x BIO SPHERE, 5x MED KIT DX and RUBY
HELMET. When all five enemy packs are killed, take the exit located in SE
corner.

Control switches over to Shion and chaos. Go left and collect DEFENSE SHIELD.
Behind one of the trees in the corner you can find FRAME REPAIR Z. Cross the
bridge to next screen and save your game. Collect BLADE SOUL, 3x BIO SPHERE,
5x ETHER PACK S, REJUVENATOR & 5x REVIVE - kill lonely Bugbear. The path is
very straightforward - go downstairs, past the bunny and thru S exit. Equip
Shion's BXS001V, which inflict STR DWN on Gnosis.

Navigate your way down the streets and thru broken fences. Kill three
Bugbears, then you'll reach a small area where Kobold is running around. Once
you confront them, escape and quickly use the invisibility timeout to nab PM
CARD E from the chest. Carry on past the manhole and... talk to the person.
When in battle, USE ONLY HEALING MOVES *ON* THE ENEMY. Everything else is
absorbed as HP recovery. Blow up the crate near place of battle and go down
the second manhole.

Hike up and up the stairs to find yourself near where you began this segment
of the dungeon. Operate the switch, and then cross under the bridge to get
access to other switch. Kill Troll and blow up the slab to uncover SEGAD 5.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE145.jpg

Nab DOUBLE BUSTER. Great - you can now perform two TATK in one turn. Equip
chaos with it - coupled with Commander's Crest from before chaos will be able
to throw two TATK on second turn without the need for guarding.

Time for little leveling up. Kill this Troll enough times so that Shion and
chaos reach LV24 - Shion uses Shock Blade with BXS001V carts, which inflict
STR DWN, and chaos barrages it with his spirit techs - go save after each 5th
encounter - in about an hour I fought enough to reach desired level. BTW, all
of this fighting also raises levels for OTHER chrs not currently in your
party. You know the two doors on each side of the bridge? Go thru right one
and blow up the panel to uncover the chest with GUARD CLEANER inside.

Now save the game, then go back into the sewers, up the ladder, out of the
manhole, and down the first manhole we've passed before. Go down and left -
destroy the debris for 5x ETHER PACK S. Back and up past the ladder - kill Sky
Fish, then operate the switch. Cross the bridge, kill Sky Fish, followed by
Larva - now step into the sewers and go up...

Jr's party is now in session. Go into the cafe to your left and inside nab
REJUVENATOR. Kill three Gerts, then enter the subway - go downstairs. See that
door with a blue line on top of it? Make your way there - go thru the door,
then keep going left until...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE146.jpg

This is SEGAD 15 - inside nab ANGEL RING. Back where you came from - destroy
some stuff to the left of the door for 2x BIO SPHERE. There's a save point in
SW corner of this subway room. When you save, make use of stairs located in NW
corner - kill Gert, then collect VEIL. Go down the ramp onto train tracks and
kill another Gert, then collect 5x NEURO STIM on dead end. Back to the save
point, and down the stairs in SW corner.

Don't destroy the benches - Kobold is hiding inside. Destroy the next obstacle
to gain 2x FRAME REPAIR A. Go on the train tracks, and turn left immediately -
use the broken ramp on top of the train. Kill Larva Doll, and obtain RED TOPAZ
by blowing up the beverage dispenser. Return to train tracks and resume E -
kill Gert and take E exit.

On next screen resume E, kill Bugbear and 'board' the train. When inside, blow
up the door to your left and collect ETHER PACK S. Go to E part of the train
compartment, where you can get outside again. Navigate the path, killing
Bugbear inbetween, until you climb the ladder - resume left, kill Larva Doll
and at the end of the catwalk blow up the obstacle. Walk all the way back
where the chest fell - get VENOM BLOCK from it. Now return to train door your
blew away before, up onto the tipped train car, kill Bugbear and enter the
sewers.

Kill two Gremlins, then blow away wall panel for 4x FRAME REPAIR A. Kill next
Gremlin, then step on small clearing of concrete, climb the ladder - behind
the door DECODER 12 SI can be obtained.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE147.jpg

Back to the sewer and resume right - finally take the ladder. We're done - but
only half done...

Shion's yours - EQUIP POISON GUARD SKILL! Kill Basilisk, then blow up the rock
and use the hidden passage to obtain PM CARD D. Back on track and go E - kill
next Basilisk and onto the next screen.

Observe a scene, then resume E - straight path again. Kill Troll, Basilisk,
Basilisk and you'll reach a three-way cross. Take the left path and kill
Kobold, then blow away piece of the land. Repeat doing so until you get to a
stone pillar with chest on top. Kill Gremlin swimming around, then destroy the
pillar and get BLUE TOPAZ. Back to three-way cross and take SE path to reach
another screen.

Kill Troll, then kill the tree stump for ETHER PACK S. Kill two Kobolds
running around, then head for the waterfall - blow up the crank to make the
bridge. Cross it and enter the hole. You're back at previous screen - go down
and up, then blow up the tree for 2x FRAME REPAIR Z. Next cross the wooden
bridge W from the hole and blow up the carrots for 4x S. CARROT JUICE SI. Back
to bunny's house you go.

Get near the wooden table and set up one portion of carrot juice. Shion will
now hide behind the tree closeby - after a short while bunny gets out of his
house, grabs the juice and starts prancing around the table. BUNNY HAS EYES ON
THE BACK OF ITS HEAD! So, to get into his house, you must make a run for it
after bunny has crossed NE line of the 'imaginary' circle around the table you
set the juice on - his real eyes will be looking toward the house, therefore
he won't see Shion until it is too late.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE148.jpg

Grab DECODER 3 SI, get out of the house and make haste upon the path N of
bunny's house. Party is united at last - after the scenes go right and enter
the church. After next set of scenes save your game and talk to white-haired
woman for HP and EP recovery. Shion and Jr are mandatory chrs in next boss
battle - for third armament I recommend chaos, mainly due to the leveling
we've done before. Check!

- invest TPTS in beam and piercing attacks
  Shion: Spell Ray and Shock Blade (equip BXS004V cartridge!!!)
  Jr: Storm Waltz and Prelude to Battle
  chaos: healing duty
- equip Blade Soul on Shion, so that she won't get confused; slap Double
  Buster on Jr; Angel Ring on Shion
- if not done so already, set the aforementioned TATK in HI slots
- and finally check your ether (have Shion learn Refresh and then transfer it
  to both chaos and Jr):
  Jr: Psycho Pocket, Psycho Arm, Refresh
  chaos: Medica All, Boost 1, Life Shot, Refresh
  Shion: Queen's Kiss, Medica All, Boost 1, Life Shot, Refresh
- have someone with Search Eyes skill, so you can keep track of Tiamat's HP

---------------- ITEM ------------------------------ RARE ITEM --------------
B-MAX Circuit                         | Revenge Power
-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Tiamat has weakness against beam and piercing attacks. Current weakness
  depends on what was the last attack it used (more info in strategy).
- Tiamat can boost and counter boost.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. Fallen Earth E - VS all chrs - etd
2. 'Blast' - VS one chr - etd
3. Berserker Fist P/S - VS one chr/mech - phd, sometimes induces Pilot KO
4. Gravity Blast E - VS one chr - %DMG, tears off 25% current HP
5. Chaotic Aura S - VS one chr - induces confusion
6. Ethereal Reversion - on itself - recovers 1500 HP, more info in strategy
7. Deranged Pulse S - VS one chr - induces AP Half
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - Earth 200 dmg to all, 'blast' 80 dmg to
one, Fist 150 dmg to one. Next - Tiamat has a weakness to certain type of
attacks, but the weakness depends on last attack it used - here's the info you
need on that aspect... after Fallen Earth and Pulse Tiamat is weak to piercing
attacks; after Fist and Gravity Blast it is weak to beam attacks. After
'blast' it has no weakness.

Let me explain an important aspect of this battle. You must *not* use chaos to
be the one who deals the finishing blow to Tiamat. Only Jr and Shion, while
inside or outside of their AGWS, can do so (once each). In other words, once
Tiamat has say 300 or so HP, ensure it is say Shion first who will take down
Tiamat. By doing so a special message will appear, telling you of something
important. After Shion dealt first finishing blow to Tiamat, latter uses
Reversion to heal 1500 HP to itself. Again wear Tiamat down until it has 300
or so HP. BEWARE!!! Shion now CANNOT be the chr dealing the final blow - this
must be done by Jr. Once Jr kills Tiamat for second time, it is defeated for
good. Of course I recommend that Shion is first chr to be used to 'kill'
Tiamat, for this will shut off Earth attacks.

Remember DOMO Carrier battle and playing around with ESL? There's a similar
'game' to be played here as well. If Tiamat gets a turn after Shion's, it will
use Ruined Earth or Pulse - but if it gets a turn after Jr's, it will use
either Fist or Blast. Be very careful for this scenario! Shion has a turn, and
Tiamat is next - she attacks Tiamat, and it cboosts. You will see TWO Fallen
Earths in a row - first from its cboost move, second from its regular move -
this presents the greatest danger in this battle, but fortunately there is a
cure, which I will discuss later on in the strategy. Let's commence battle
now.

What you do first is use Shion's Shock Blade to inflict STR DWN on Tiamat.
This will reduce the mad damage it does with Fist attack, making it way more
manageable. Next order of business is applying three Boost 1 ethers to all
three characters - this is for prevention of two Earths in a row. Before you
start doing serious damage to Tiamat, make sure you steal Revenge Power. Now
we're set up and can begin chipping off its HP.

Don't use Shion for attacking during first half (you don't need extra Earths
raining down on your ass), except for one condition, mentioned later. Have her
solely to be the medic for the fight. If Aura is used on someone, heal that
chr ASAP - use a boost, if you have to, esp if Shion's the one that's confused
(did you remember to put Blade Soul on her?). Also pay attention to what
attack boss is using - if it used Fist or Blast, have Shion execute Spell Ray;
and if it used Earth, blast Tiamat with Jr's Storm Waltz or Prelude to Battle.
Remember, I told you that Tiamat becomes weak to specific attack type after
Tiamat itself uses certain moves.

Tiamat's cboost ability should be taken into account here, esp if you're using
Shion for the attack. Let's assume the worst scenario - Tiamat cboosts, and
also has next attack, which means two Earths. DURING first Earth animation,
HAVE ONE OF YOUR CHRS USE BOOST. This will interrupt Tiamat's next regular
turn and allow you to heal yourself in time - hell, you may even throw in
another boost and heal again. Do take note of this little strategic tip, it
will come in useful in one of later battles as well.

Aura and Blast are dealt with quite easily (Blast is also an attack, which
cannot kill you under any circumstances), Fist is taken care of by inducing
STR DWN on Tiamat, I've discussed how to deal with Earth in previous two
paragraphs, and 'blast' it occassionally uses only deals minor damage... I
hope Tiamat no longer presents an unconquerable obstacle. Don't forget that
once Shion 'kills' Tiamat, latter restores 1500 HP to itself. All is not bad,
though - Tiamat can no longer use Earth (similarly, were you to use Jr first,
Tiamat would lose Fist and Blast attacks). Simply follow up with Jr being the
chr killing Tiamat for good and you win.

Shion's yours - you must look for Allen (he's located in Iron Man bar, but DO
NOT TALK TO HIM YET - we've got other stuff to do). As you try to leave the
resting area, MAIL 43 arrives. As you depart for the train area, MAIL 44 will
arrive - it contains Frshot subweapon and Xbuster TATK, both for Kosmos.
Xbuster is in my opinion most useful TATK for Kosmos and well worth investing
most of Kosmos' TPTS in it. Make sure you download the attachment containing
these weapons. Just before boarding the train MAIL 45 arrives. Head for the
dock area and enter Elsa - depart for Dock Colony and visit Luty here. Ah, the
flower bloomed at last - talk to Luty and you'll receive TECH UPGRADE Z for
your efforts. Now back to Kukai and enter sectors 26 and 27.

Go to the cleaners' and unlock SEGAD 3 - inside collect ROBOT PART RIGHT LEG.
Go visit the nutty proffessor and Shion obtains DOMINION TANK ether. Go find
Allen now... this is just great, isn't it? We start on Durandal's bridge, so
make haste to sectors 26 and 27 again. Kosmos is finally back in our party!
You go girl! Make your chrs Shion, Kosmos and chaos. Have Kosmos learn Down
Ether and Ether Limit ethers, while Shion transfers Boost 1 to Kosmos and Jr
tranfers Psycho Pocket to chaos. While we're wandering around, killing stuff
and enemies, work your way towards Shion's Quick ether. Soon you'll have to
start relying on AGL increasing ethers to stand chances against bosses.

There's 13 people in total that must be rescued. Let us commence - for
starters enter Iron Man bar. Kill two parties of Kobolds inside, then check
'Iron 3' board for FIRST PERSON - talk to him twice and he's gone. Now enter
Our Treasure hotel, talk to the person on the floor, then engage Troll on the
left - now examine the safe... damn, who needs a password at a time like
this??? Now go behind the counter and nab SWIMSUIT from the chest (no, Kosmos
can't equip it), then go upstairs, and climb the ladder in room to the right.
Examine the blue picture... so, the pin is 1028? There's TECH UPGRADE S to be
found up here. Go back to the safe and enter these numbers: 1, 0, 2, 8. SECOND
PERSON saved. Back to second floor and into the right room - blow away the
shelf and obtain BATTLE GEAR. There's a hole leading to Iron Man - operate the
switch here to rise the lift. Go back onto hotel's 3rd floor and make use of S
exit to land on the hotel's roof. Now...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE149.jpg

Step off the plate holding analog stick in upper right direction to land on
another part of the roof. Blow away the panel and SEGAD 1 is revealed.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE150.jpg

Inside is ROBOT PART HEAD. One more to go and we're finished. Back outside and
drop off the roof onto the catwalk. Here blow away the flowers for ETHER
UPGRADE S. Go onto the roof again, but this time drop off holding the stick in
upper left direction. Follow the path...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE151.jpg

DECODER 13 SI is yours. Back to the roof area - you'll see a part of the roof
that extends a bit further than the rest. Drop down from that part and you'll
land in dumpster area. Blow them away - THIRD PERSON saved. Collect 1000 G.
Return to Iron Man and kill all enemies again - you're more than capable of
doing so... anyway, strive to achieve 800 TPTS for Kosmos, so that you can put
Xbuster in HI slot. Collect WOODEN IDOL from the chest to the right of where
you kill Basilisk. See a bunch of crates behind the lift we operated before?
Mow them away - FOURTH PERSON saved and TECH UPGRADE S. Onto sector 27.

Kill Basilisk infront of the statue, then kill the statue itself - FIFTH
PERSON. Now go past the bakery and engage Wyrm (careful, it's very dangerous),
then Bugbear - now enter the cleaner's. Go up, blow red can near Larva Doll
and engage - the difference now is that Dolls transform into Faces when
killed... still, both are susceptible to healing effects. Go down and rescue
SIXTH PERSON. Below the ladder is destroyable shelf - nab 2x ETHER UPGRADE S.
When outside, follow the path and kill Larva Doll. Further to the right blow
away the wall panel and SEVENTH PERSON is rescued. Destroy the fence and fall
down, then engage Gel Fish. Now step on metal catwalk and enter the door you
come across - inside blow away the shelf for SKILL UPGRADE S. Now go outside,
down and right, back inside, kill Troll, followed by Basilisk. Back outside,
go left and down the ramp. Operate the switch to raise the ramp we just
crossed. Climb back up via the ladder and enter newly accessible door - kill
Bugbear for EIGHTH PERSON rescued. Destroy stuff for 1000 G.

Walk back outside and get to the door labeled 'EAST 6', which leads to the
garage with pink bug doll. Blow up the car for RUNE CRYSTAL and kill Troll.
Now blow up two crates behind the person lying on the floor, but make sure you
*don't* blow up the pink bug doll. Now talk to the person who was hiding in
the crate - NINTH & TENTH PERSON rescued. Go back outside, up the stairs and
into next door. Talk to ELEVENTH PERSON to save him. Engage Larva Doll, then
push the button to reveal next entrance. Before that make your way W, then W
again, down the stairs, kill Larva Doll, then talk to TWELFTH PERSON. Obtain
CURE-ALL by destroying two closets. Return the way you came, and now enter the
entrance we made by pressing the last switch - go upstairs and enter next
screen. Kill Larva Doll and talk to THIRTEENTH PERSON (?).

Here's my recommended setup:
- invest TPTS in slash and spirit attacks (gain enough TPTS to upgrade Xbuster
  and set it in HI slot)
  Shion: Spell Ray and Shock Blade
  Kosmos: Rblade and Xbuster
  chaos: Angel Wings and Lunar Seal
- next boss is capable of using attack with KO effect, so have Revives handy
- Angel Ring on Shion, Double Buster on Kosmos, Commander's Crest on chaos
- if not done so already, set the aforementioned TATK in HI slots
- and finally check your ether (have Shion learn Quick and then transfer it
  to both chaos and Kosmos, while Jr transfers Psycho Pocket to chaos):
  Kosmos: Medica All, Quick, Down Force, Down Ether, Ether Limit
  chaos: Medica All, Boost 1, Quick, Healing Dew, Psycho Pocket
  Shion: Queen's Kiss, Medica All, Boost 1, Life Shot, Quick

Enter the hotel, use a Bio Sphere and save your game. Try exiting the sector
26 and... touch it and engage.

BOSS BATTLE - 2x GIGAS (G enemy type)
---------------------------------- STATISTICS -------------------------------
HP   | EXP   | G  | TPT | EPT | SPT | STR | VIT | ETK | EDF | DEX | EVA | AGL
2800 | 7800  | 0  | 120 | 100 | 60  | 100 | 40  | 55  | 34  | 40  | 30  | 9
---------------- ITEM ------------------------------ RARE ITEM --------------
Spirit                                | Soul
-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Left Gigas has weakness against spirit, right against slash attacks.
- Gigas can boost and counter boost.
- Left Gigas specializes into physicals, right into ether attacks.
- If killed with Dark Scepter, transforms into Diamond.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. Power Distribution - on itself - splits into two
2. Cursed Aura E - VS one chr - etd
3. 'Guard stance' - guards until next regular turn
4. 'Lance stab' - VS one chr - phd
5. Frostbite E/I - IATT VS all chrs - ice etd
6. Wave Blast P - VS vanguard - phd
7. Deathbringer - VS one chr - induces KO
8. Lightning Blast E/L - LATT VS all chrs - light etd
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - Aura deals 130 dmg to one, 'stab' 250 dmg
to one, Frostbite 200 dmg to all, Wave 100 dmg to all, and Lightning 250 dmg
to all. Deathbringer becomes often used after right Gigas sustains 1800 dmg.

As soon as battle starts, lone Gigas will use Distribution in order to make a
copy of itself - thus you have to deal with two Gigas at once - remember the
angle of battle camera at this point and memorize which Gigas is left and
which is right. I have received word that it may be possible to have a chr act
*before* lone Gigas splits, but I have yet to experience that. Now, few
important differences to note about what Gigas dudes you'll fight:
- left Gigas is weak to spirit attacks and relies mostly on physicals
- right Gigas uses ether attacks only, and is weak to slash attacks

Ramen S. wrote to me letting me know that indeed you can have a turn before
Gigas splits and thus you can obtain an extra copy of Soul or Spirit.

Start of battle is quite relaxed (Aura and 'lance stab'), so setting your chrs
up with three Boost 1 per chr will be no problem (cast Quick before you start,
though). DO NOT FORGET TO STEAL SOUL AND SPIRIT!!! This is the only chance in
the game. When I take a look at damage potential both Gigas can dish out, I
consider getting rid of Gigas who relies more on physical attacks, a greater
priority (it has more damaging attacks).

Once Boost 1 is applied, recast Quick if needed. Another great assistance
which can seriously hamper Gigas's damage output is to cast Down Ether and
Down Force on them - doing so will decrease their STR as well as EATK, making
most of their attacks deal 100 dmg a pop. Inducing EATK DWN is esp important,
as both guys have a magic attack, which hits all chrs.

As you keep attacking left Gigas, keep an eye out for its defensive stance.
During this time any type of damage is reduced, and attacking it will only
result in cboosting and needless damage. Once left Gigas' HP falls below 1000
HP, it will start chucking Lightning and Wave in your direction. Latter hits
all vanguard chrs, while former hits everybody. If you remembered to put EATK
DWN and STR DWN statuses on Gigas, dmg will be manageable and you won't have
to heal as often. If left Gigas guards, consider using some attacks versus its
buddy, but be careful not to have its HP cross below 1000 remaining - or else
face Deathbringer, a KO inducing nightmare.

Left Gigas is close to defeat, right? Now make use of boosting your own chrs
and kill it with chaos' Lunar Seal, which will deal huge amount of dmg. Only
right bastard remains. Regardless of HP left, be prepared for possible
Frostbite attacks - and if HP is below 1000, Deathbringer is also very likely.
Before resuming battle, recast enough Boost 1 magics to have BG of 3. Now -
Rblade, here I come. Don't be afraid to use boost to revive fallen comrades.
If you wish to avoid too many unnecessary deaths, have Shion and chaos board
their AGWS (Deathbringer will have no effect) and pop a cap in Gigas' ass from
there.

In case you decide to plaster right Gigas first, it will use Deathbringer when
its HP is lower than 1000. Once it is eliminated, its left buddy decides to
use Wave, followed by Lightning when HP is lower than 1000. I rather take
partial damage for all chrs, than take full damage for one chr and have that
chr KO-ed.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! ************************

map - make it all the way to the warehouse - behind SEGAD 13's door you will
nab SAMURAI HEART. After this long trek another one awaits you - revisit the
place where you fought Tiamat and obtain STAR HAT from the chest there. Also,
remember the searchlights in this same dungeon? When you fall into battle,
you'll fight Kubel and four Dirlewangers. Abuse Xcannon and kill them on point
bonus ESL to gain massive PTS bonuses.

Return to the Elsa and save your game, then make use of the UMN shop nearby
and purchase newest armors and accessories. Then talk to Matthews to get
things moving. Next dungeon, here we come. When you arrive, note that you
cannot leave until dungeon is cleared. Should you run low on items and
equipment, note that you can return to Elsa and restock at previously
mentioned UMN shop.

Follow the straighforward path until you arrive to this elevator:

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE152.jpg

To access floors, you must match a sum which is divisible by three, ie:
- to reach floor 2, amount must be 3
- to reach floor 3, amount must be 6
- to reach floor 4, amount must be 9
- to reach floor 5, amount must be 12
- to reach floor 6, amount must be 15
- to reach floor 7, amount must be 18

Simply blow up the boxes as designated in the picture...
- floor 2 has nothing of interest
- floor 3 has sth of interest... kill Shot Crab on your left, then make note
  of SW exit - here activate the switch for first tower to form a bridge to
  second tower - back inside blow up the crate on your right for MED KIT DX
- floor 4 has nothing of interest
- floor 5 has DECODER 14 SI (check URL below for exact location) in a crate at
  the end of the corridor
- floor 6 has NEO ARMOR ALPHA in a crate at the end of the corridor, as well
  as exits to towers two and three - take tower 2's exit for now
- floor 7 has nothing of interest

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE153.jpg

Cross the bridge and enter tower 2 - make use of the save point (the only one
here, not counting Elsa's). Now put Momo as an onscreen chr and take the exit
leading to NE...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE154.jpg

Examine the sparkle to obtain MOMO'S KISS TATK and STARLIGHT ether. Back to
previous room and now take N exit. Kill Capto and then collect CROSS from
destroyed crate to the right. Back to previous room, save - we'll now level up
Kosmos. Start by extracting skills Lonely PDUP and Lonely EDUP from Soul and
Spirit accessories we've stolen from Gigas. Equip these two skills on Kosmos
as well Fire-20% and set Xbuster to HI slot. Now take NW exit and engage Calx
here - use Hemlock on both Shion and chaos and watch them go KO quite soon.
You'll always fight three Calx with one Capto - together they're worth roughly
4000 EXP and a bunch of PTS. Use Xbuster TATK against the front line on point
bonus ESL - don't worry about taking high dmg - Lonely PDUP and EDUP we've
equipped raise user's VIT and EDEF as allies get KO-ed. Fight them until
either Kosmos reaches Lv33 or her Xbuster gains lv9 in power. Are you done?
Save your progress and let's get to the bottom of tower 2...

Take NW exit and kill Calx - you're on level 4 of the tower. Climb down the
ladder to lv3, kill Crab and climb another ladder to lv4 - here collect
SOLDIER'S HONOR. Back to lv3 and go right - kill Capto, the descend the ladder
to lv2. Go left, kill Crab and Calx, then ignore the ladder leading down and
keep going to reach another ladder leading up to lv3. Cross the bridge to
enter central area of tower 2 - go right and you'll see five boxes. Mow down
first three for DEFIBRILLATOR VEST & NEO ARMOR BETA. Heal yourselves, then
blow up fourth crate...

BOSS BATTLE - ATHRA 26 SERIES (B enemy type)
---------------------------------- STATISTICS -------------------------------
HP   | EXP   | G  | TPT | EPT | SPT | STR | VIT | ETK | EDF | DEX | EVA | AGL

---------------- ITEM ------------------------------ RARE ITEM --------------
Revive DX                             | none
-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Athra has no weakness, but will become immune to fire, ice, lightning, beam
  and spirit attacks once it's been hit.
- Athra can boost and counter boost.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. 'Swipe' - VS one chr - phd
2. Morph Defense - on itself - more info in strategy and special note/s
3. 'Laser' - VS one chr - etd
4. 'Engine failure' - VS one mech - induces stop
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - 'swipe' deals 130 dmg to one, 'laser' 250
dmg to one. And that's all there is to it.

Although considered a boss enemy (according to quotes chrs say at start of
battle), Athra is moderately challenging. When scanned, you'll see that it has
no weakness. But that's only temporary - as soon as you use an attack which
belongs to one of game's five elements (fire, ice, lightning, beam, spirit),
Athra will gain immunity to used element once the attacker's turn ends. This
means that any further attacks of this element will be rendered useless.
Fortunately, piercing and slash attacks still do full damage.

Before getting down and dirty, have each of your chrs cast Boost 1 on
themselves three times to achieve BG of 3 - follow this by casting Quick. Now
proceed hammering down on Athra and 3000 HP it has. If a chr's HP falls below
300, immediately execute boost if you have to and cast Medica All to recover
the wounds - it's very likely that all three chrs will have sustained damage
by now, as Athra has very high cboost rate, not to mention its exceptional
AGL. Keep up the pace and Athra soon falls.

Using AGWS for this fight is not recommended, unless you have Engine Guard
acc. As soon as AGWS is present in battle, Athra will do a move, which causes
stop. On the other hand, if you do have Engine Guard, this could be a nice
distraction for Athra to waste turns. Your choice, anyway.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! ************************


After killing it you obtain DECODER 2 SI.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE155.jpg

Blow up final crate and SEGAD 12...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE156.jpg

...is revealed. Collect W HAMMER ROD, then return to the ladder we last used.
Go down to lv2, then a bit up and descened previously ignored ladder to reach
lv1. There's three bridges connected to central area - one on NW, one on N and
one on NE side - take N one first and press the switch to operate the blue
circle walkway to come down. Now make way to NE bridge (kill Calx enroute) and
blow up the generator. Repeat by crossing NW bridge and blowing up second
generator - doing this will lower the barrier, but also cause next boss to
appear. Check your ether and make sure that chaos has learned Purifying Storm.
Also place Shion in rearguard BEHIND Kosmos and make sure YOU HAVE STEALING
ETHERS SET!!! Set Kosmos' Schain in LOW speed slot, and Xbuster in HI slot
(also make sure she has Double Buster on). Now engage...

BOSS BATTLE - RIANON SE (G enemy type)
---------------------------------- STATISTICS -------------------------------
HP   | EXP   | G  | TPT | EPT | SPT | STR | VIT | ETK | EDF | DEX | EVA | AGL
5600 | 20000 | 0  | 160 | 160 | 40  | 100 | 20  | 65  | 45  | 45  | 50  | 11
---------------- ITEM ------------------------------ RARE ITEM --------------
Boost Pack                            | Shield Armor
-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Se has weakness to fire attacks.
- Se takes no damage from ice attacks.
- Se can boost and counter boost.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. 'Bash' - VS one chr - phd
2. Binding Chains S - VS all chrs - induces boost seal
3. Power Hand S - VS one chr - etd, pushes hit chr to rearguard
4. Gigapure S - VS all combatants - clears all status abnormalities
5. Soul Eater S - VS one chr - %DMG, tears off 50% MAX HP
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - 'bash' deals 180 dmg to one, Hand 140 dmg
to one, casting any ether on it prompts it to cboost. As it's a flying Gnosis,
only triangle attacks and TATK with line or air attack property will have an
effect.

Start by having all three chrs reach BG with value 3. Use Shion to heal damage
for this time. When BG is on the level I recommend, resort to stealing - Se
has two one-chance-only items, and you should be esp interested in Shield
Armor. It blocks *all* status changes (this includes positive ones). Maintain
HP above 50% always, or else it may drain enough to kill a chr, thus making
you have to waste a turn reviving fallen chr. And certainly don't use AGWS -
allowing Rianon to drain over 800 HP isn't worth it.

Rianon usually starts the fight with Chains, which prevents your chrs from
using boost - your BG will still fill, you just can't use it. Purifying Storm
will take care of this nasty status for you. Kosmos will be our main attacker
here - as Shion is behind her, Kosmos cannot be pushed to back row (side
effect of Power Hand, but doesn't always work) - as for chaos, he'll be able
to attack for as long as he's in the front row. Decision on whether or not
it's fruitful enough to put him back in front row is left to you - but
personally I don't bother, as I let Kosmos do all the attacking.

To make boss a little more manageable, I suggest you have Kosmos guard for one
turn, followed by Blaster, Xbuster, Schain. Aside from damage this will induce
some NEGSE on Rianon, increasing your odds for Rianon being forced to use
Gigapure and thus wasting a turn. On any other Kosmos' moves use Blaster,
followed by Xbuster. Once Gigapure is used, repeat the exercise.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! ************************


After the battle walk down and you'll be outside - go right and press the
switch to activate tower 2. Then make use of nearby elevator and take the ride
up, where you should go into tower 2 to save your game. Now cross the bridge
and enter tower 3. If you're gonna engage Byproducts, it is imperative that
you extract KO Guard skill from Defibrillator Vest. From the top room with
triangular hole in the middle take W exit.

Tower 3 is comprised of four levels, with you being on lv4 for now. Go past
(or fight - your choice) Byproduct and go down the ladder to lv2. Step off the
ladder and blow away three blocks to form a bridge to the left - go collect
FIELD RING. Back to the ladder and take it down to lv1 (Byproduct) - again
blow away three blocks to form a bridge to the left. You'll see a stair set
leading outside - we'll use it in a while, for now take the ladder you see -
you can climb to lv2, but not lv3, as sth is blocking the access. So disembark
at lv2 and blow away three portions of the crates to form a bridge to the left
(Byproduct), then climb the ladder to lv4 (Byproduct). Go right, across the
bridge, past the crate and kill Byproduct at the end - nab SKILL UPGRADE S.
Now blow up the crate and then choose to jump down to collect ETHER PACK DX.
Destroy the door for MED KIT, and collect DECODER 17 SI...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE157.jpg

...from the chest (also blow up the crate on top of the ladder). Climb down to
lv1, blow last three crates off and cross formed bridge to the left and gain
ETHER PACK DX. Now take the stairs leading outside - it's a dead end, but
doing so causes the crates which support bridges in previous room to restock.

Climb the ladder to lv2, and blow three crates off. Cross the bridge, then
descend the ladder and go thru W exit. In the next room hike W for a clue.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE158.jpg

Clear? Blow away one green, three blue and four red segments, then go outside
and press the switch - enter the nearby door and step on the elevator. Make
haste to the save point in tower 2 - restore HP and EP and organize your
ether:
- Kosmos: Medica All, Quick, Ether Limit, Psycho Pocket, Down Force
  chaos: Medica All, Boost 1, Quick, Light & Wings, Purifying Storm
  Shion: Queen's Kiss, Medica All, Boost 1, Life Shot, Quick

BOSS BATTLE - SIMEON (M enemy type)

---------------- ITEM ------------------------------ RARE ITEM --------------
B-MAX Circuit                         | Fast Circuit 25
-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Simeon can boost and counter boost.
- Simeon reduces fire, ice, lightning and beam damage by 50%.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. Psychovise P - VS one chr - phd
2. Beam Saber P/B - BATTP VS one chr - beam phd
3. 'Rocket barrage' - VS all chrs - etd
4. 'Frail! You're all so frail!' - power up move for Aird, more info in strat
5. Aird E - VS one chr - etd
6. Ether Def Recovery - after Aird is used, Simeon's EDEF drops
7. 'Widebeam cannon' - BATT VS all chrs - beam etd
8. Psychovise P/S - VS one mech - phd, induces slow
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - Psycho deals 200 dmg to one, Saber 250 dmg
to one, 'barrage' 250 dmg to all, Aird 350 dmg to one, 'widebeam' 300 dmg to
all. When he blabbers, take note of the chr he's addressing - that chr will be
attacked next. His EDEF is down by 50% until next turn, so go all out.

Start by having all three chrs reach BG with value 3. Use Shion to heal damage
for this time - you won't receive any of the dangerous stuff yet, for only
moves used for now will be Psycho and Saber. Nevertheless, Simeon is one tough
customer. By now your Medica All heals all chrs for 400-500 for sure.

Using AGWS isn't recommended, as Psycho attack, designed specifically for
AGWS, carries slow status and having to defend to clear it (assuming you have
Guard Cleaner equipped) is waste of turns - your bets are better off with three
chrs. For this fight I'd recommend Kosmos and chaos to be the backbone of the
attack - have both cast Ether Limit on themselves (to double ether damage),
then unleash Rcannon (or Xbuster, if it's stronger) for Kosmos, and Lunar Seal
for chaos. Simeon's VIT is quite high, so don't count on doing too much damage
with physicals - ether attacks are the way to go.

After Simeon loses roughly half HP, it'll start using 'barrage' and Aird
attacks, as well as boosting and cboosting a lot. Healing on every turn will
become an important role in this part of battle. The good thing about Aird is
that Simeon will waste a turn in battle by talking about [frail stuff] -
memorize the chr that will appear! - this chr will be attacked next, so have
him/her guard. After Aird is used, Simeon's EDEF is reduced greatly, so use
your strongest ether attacks with help of boosts.

With less than 25% HP remaining, be ready for Simeon's strongest attack -
'widebeam cannon' deals whopping 300 dmg to all. Fortunately it is preceeded
by Simeon wasting a turn by saying [Come on, entertain me!]. Quickly heal any
wounds that you might be having and prepare for the punishment (try to make
sure it doesn't land on critical ESL).

Don't forget: Kosmos and chaos Ether Limit on themselves, then throw Xbuster
and Lunar Seal at Simeon, while Shion heals. After Simeon loses 50% HP, Kosmos
ceases attacking and is assigned on healing duty. Recast Ether Limit on chaos
if necessary and continue using Lunar Seal with him, while Kosmos and Shion
heal on every turn, restoring EP when necessary and casting Boost 1. If you're
in top shape, ie full HP and BG of 3, let Simeon have it until it falls.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! ************************


DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING! WHEN YOU HAVE CONTROL, RETURN TO THE SAVE POINT AND
SAVE YOUR PROGRESS. It is useless to fight two bosses in a row, when you have
the option of saving your progress. As for preparations, have Kosmos and chaos
extract All Guard from Shield Armor you stole from Rianon, and equip the armor
itself on Shion. Some attacks of next boss have now been rendered useless. If
you don't have Shield Armor or don't have enough SPTS to extract the skill, at
least try to extract Confusion Guard from Blade Soul (equip acc itself on
Kosmos). If you can be bothered, level chaos to lv30 - he now learns Demon
Banisher, a sweet TATK which induces Curse on Gnosis enemies - if you'll do
that, don't forget to set it for use in battle.

Following boss battle is one of few opportunities where AGWS can be useful, if
being used as decoy. Equip them with Engine Shields, Guard Recovery and Guard
Cleaners and make sure that AGWS chaos and Shion use have weapons equipped
which allow W-Act - all of these can be bought in AGWS hangar on Elsa. Return
to where you fought Simeon and talk to the man... Engage him!

- Rugel reduces ice and lightning damage by 75%.
- Wogel reduces beam and lightning damage by 75%.
- Rugel and Wogel can boost and counter boost.

6. Shadow Wing S - VS one chr/mech - induces stop (chr) or Drive Suspension
   (mech)
7. Anti-Status Shield Down - % of inducing NEGSE on Wogel increases
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Damage output report is as follows: Frost 100 dmg to all, 'swordplay' 120 dmg
to one, Blast 200 dmg to all, 'arrow' and 'stab' 150 dmg to one, Chaos Arrow
100 dmg to one, Storm 350 dmg to all. First half of boss battle relies heavily
on statuses, so having chaos with Light & Wings and Purifying Storm is heavily
recommended - former will be used in cases of Speeder, and latter for clearing
many abnormal stuff both bosses will chuck at you. After Rugel uses Power
Spell or Lightning attacks, its status shield will grow weaker, meaning it's
easier for you to induce NEGSE upon the boss.

When battle starts, apply the usual routine - Boost 1 until BG of 3 is
available for all chrs, healing wounds as you go (don't let HP fall below
250). If you get affected by Force, Frost or Wave, use chaos' Storm
immediately. If Rugel increases its STR, use Kosmos' Down Force to reduce its
STR, and if AGL is raised, throw chaos' Light & Wings to nullify it. DON'T
FORGET TO STEAL MASTER'S PENDANT! ONE-TIME CHANCE ONLY!

Kyl C. submitted following tip: Here's something glitchy that can happen, hehe:
successfully inflict Curse status on Rugel and let it 'defeat' itself by
damaging you. Curse status: damage given, damage received, remember? Anyway,
once Rugel dies cos of lack of HP, battle is over.

If you've been practicing with chaos a lot and he reached lv30, Demon Banisher
is at your disposal - Rugel is vulnerable to curse status, so if you can use
Banisher, by all means do so. If curse in induces successfully, Rugel will
take damage equal to the amount of damage he dealt with its most recent attack
(in case of multi-hit attack, damage taken into calculation is that of top-
left character's portrait).

Anyway... Rugel has a variety of attacks on its disposal, but only half of
them are harmful. And none possess a very serious threat, at least not to such
extent that you couldn't heal it with Medica All. On top of it, boss is
resistant to ice and lightning damage - but not to beam and spirit attacks,
which will be your forte in this battle. As usual by now, boss starts to boost
and cboost regularly when its HP is 50% and below. Counteract accordingly by
healing yourself with help of boosts, but refrain from using them excessively,
as we will need them in second half of battle.

Once Rugel is down, Wogel emerges - as a flying Gnosis, it can only be hit by
far attacks. This bozo is fairly resistant to all types of attacks, except for
AGWS attacks. Before you transfer Shion or chaos into AGWS, make all possible
efforts to steal Gemini Clock and Samurai Heart (healing when necessary).
After both acc are yours, Shion enters her AGWS and constantly defend, while
chaos and Kosmos attack Wogel relentlessly (cast Ether Limit on Kosmos to
increase damage done by ether attacks).

If chaos knows Demon Banisher, USE IT! Every extra bit of damage Wogel will do
to itself, is welcome. However, if you don't have that TATK, transfer chaos
into AGWS as well. Wogel, seeing AGWS in battle, will often times waste a turn
by casting Shadow Wing on a mech, only to have its attempt fail cos of Engine
Guard we set in place. Fortunately Wogel is stupid enough to keep trying.
Confusion Arrow move will (or rather, should) only have an effect on Kosmos,
but since she has Blade Soul in place (or Confusion Guard skill) she's safe.

Try to bring Wogel's HP as close to 2200 HP as you can. Once you're just above
that mark, have both AGWS use W-ACT, which will shave off around 1000-1500 HP
from Wogel - have Shion disengage her AGWS, for you'll need two chrs for this
part of battle. In any case, once Wogel's HP becomes 2199 or less, Eternal
Storm is used for about 300 dmg to all chrs. Whenever it's used, Wogel's
status shield effectiveness wears down and you can try to inflict nasty NEGSE
on it. With Wogel's HP below 1099 HP, it starts alternating between Flare Wing
and Eternal Storm - after Wing is used, your chrs take 25% more damage from
ether attacks, so use Cure-All to remove the bad status (or alternatively, use
Veil item with 6 AP on all three chrs - by doing so you will take 25% less
damage from ether attacks).

AGWS chaos is in continues to guard and use W-ACT on next turn, Shion heals
both herself and Kosmos, and Kosmos attacks Wogel for any extra damage she can
afford. Don't get cocky - if Kosmos will have to heal as well to preserve your
chrs from dying, do so! With combined efforts Wogel falls as well and you win.

Shion's yours. Go down the elevator and you'll receive MAIL 48, which contains
RDRAGON TATK for Kosmos - continue toward the train for MAIL 49 (you will
receive 200000 G!) and MAIL 50 to arrive. It is time now that we go and power
ourselves up.

ORDER OF BUSINESS 1 - EQUIPMENT

Go to white UMN plate onboard Elsa and purchase latest equipment for your
party. There's new armor, weaponry and crapload of items to be bought. If
you're lacking money, use Casino Passport and play slots or roulette.

ORDER OF BUSINESS 2 - SEGMENT DOORS AND DECODERS

By now you should have 17 Decoders and 16 SEGAD uncovered. If you've been
following my guide, right now all that remains for us is SEGAD 14 on Elsa's
catapult deck (collect SPEED SHOES inside) and SEGAD 2 at the bottom of Dock
Colony's Junk shop (collect ROBOT PART BODY from chest inside).

ORDER OF BUSINESS 3 - SHION'S A POWERHOUSE!

You now possess all six robot parts - it is time we pay good 'ol prof a visit.
When Kelbim Dragon is complete, talk to prof again. Head for sectors 26&27
now, cos we need to look for Scott. But before that, extra loot can be won.
- enter Iron Man bar and go left of the counter - blow up everything for TECH
  UPGRADE S
- dumpster area near Our Treasure hotel hides TECH UPGRADE A
- in the cleaner's house you can blow away the counter near the ladder leading
  up for SKILL UPGRADE S
- there's a set of stairs to the right of entrance to cleaner's - use them and
  walk along the alley to receive MAIL 51

Now return to Iron Man bar and find Scott drinking behind the counter. ERDE
KAISER ether for Shion is now available (again, you need ALL SIX robot parts
or you won't be able to obtain Erde Kaiser).

ORDER OF BUSINESS 4 - BACKTRACKING IN EVS

Unless done so already, it is a wise idea to revisit old dungeons via EVS and
collect loot you might have missed. So far I told you about all stuff that
could be nabbed except for this one...
- return to EVS Encephalon - you must make it all the way back to the place
  where Shion and chaos started - you'll be at the playing ground - find the
  purple sphere and put Momo or Jr to be the onscreen character - press Circle
  near the entrance and PM CARD A is yours

ORDER OF BUSINESS 5 - OPTIONAL BOSS FIGHTS

There's two extra bosses you can find in XS:E1. One is Great Joe, the other is
Mintia. Great Joe can be found aboard Durandal, in one of the rooms in
residential area, and Jr must be a lead character. With him in the lead, blow
open the door of the closet and a scene will play, where you will be asked if
you wish to engage in battle. Choose first option to do so.

Mintia can be found in Kukai Foundation, just above Iron Man bar. Momo must be
a lead character. Enter Our Treasure inn, climb the stairs, go into left room,
then exit that room via S door to appear on the catwalk. Go right, blow away an
obstacle, then fall down onto Iron Man's 'watershields' - hold left analog
stick in NE direction, so that your chr doesn't fall off. Enter the only open

BOSS BATTLE - GREAT JOE (G enemy type)
---------------------------------- STATISTICS -------------------------------

---------------- ITEM ------------------------------ RARE ITEM --------------
Swimsuit                              | none
-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Great Joe can boost and counter boost.
- Great Joe reduces lightning/beam damage by 50%.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. 'Dropkick' - VS one chr - phd
2. Gambler E - VS one chr - etd
3. Heart Shot Punch P/S - VS one chr - phd, induces Curse
4. Soul Crusher E - VS all chrs - etd
5. Planning Combination Attack - charge turn for either Bloodlust or
   Cerebration; if Joe takes damage during this phase, plan may be canceled
6. Proposing Combination Attack - details in strategy
7. 'Duel challenge' - details in strategy
8. 'Recovery & damage reversal' - details in strategy
9. Cerebration S - self - induces Focus Ether Attack
10. Bloodlust S - self - induces Focus Physical Attack
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------
Potential damage output is: 'dropkick' 250 dmg, Gambler 150 dmg, Crusher 300
dmg to all, Punch 120 dmg.

Who lent this guy a voice? *dies* Jr is mandatory chr in this battle, while I
recommend taking in Kosmos and Shion as well. Joe has a variety of attacks, but
there are two good things: he has only one hit-all attack, and 60% of moves are
non-damaging ones. Like Mintia, Joe has high cboost rate, so stay alert on
dreaded red boost circle.

On start of battle make it your job to buff yourself up via ethers or items - I
recommend increasing your VIT and EDEF. 'Dropkick' and Gambler are two attacks
you'll be seeing most of the time until Joe's HP goes into 7000 HP range.

When that happens, Joe starts using Crusher and Punch (beware of Curse status,
which you should remove ASAP) more often. There's also a chance that you'll see
Planning Combo Atk. This denotes charge up turn for one of Joe's status buffs -
either Bloodlust or Cerebration. Cerebration being used means more bad news for
you, as Crusher hits all chrs, and 700 dmg on all isn't pretty. When Joe is in
'planning' phase, attack him for there is a chance that a successful damaging
hit may cancel its plan. If you don't succeed, Joe enters 'proposing' phase and
casts Bloodlust or Cerebration. That also grants him the ability of using two
attacks in one turn! If Cerebration, you'll see combo of Gambler and Crusher,
and if Bloodlust, you'll see combo of Punch and 'dropkick'.

That continues until Joe's HP goes under 4000 HP - at this point Jr is
challenged to a duel. Joe will focus on attacking Jr only, while you're allowed
to have only Jr attack Joe. If any other chr attacks Joe, he still takes
damage, but not without cboosting and using Gambler against the attacker. As
Gambler's damage isn't that great anyway, I recommend using all chrs to attack
Joe. Hey, don't forget to heal yourself every once in a while, you hear?

When Joe's HP meets 2000 HP quota, duel is canceled (it wasn't even there to
begin with). Joe also casts a status on himself, which reverses healing and
damage effects - healing becomes damage, and damage becomes recovery. If you
see a sparkling cloud above Joe's head, status change has succeeded and you
shouldn't use attacks, but items on Joe instead. After few turns pass, the
status is negated and effects return to normal. From now on forward possible
attacks are: Bloodlust, Cerebration, Crusher, Gambler, 'dropkick'. Remember to
keep healthy and soon Joe will fall.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! ************************


After battle Jr learns TATK Soul Rhapsody and ether Magnum Joe... now Mintia.

BOSS BATTLE - MINTIA (G enemy type)
---------------------------------- STATISTICS -------------------------------
HP   | EXP   | G  | TPT | EPT | SPT | STR | VIT | ETK | EDF | DEX | EVA | AGL
7777 | 22000 |12 K| 160 | 240 | 200 | 20  | 20  | 80  | 32  | 80  | 50  | 12
---------------- ITEM ------------------------------ RARE ITEM --------------
Penguin Rod                           | Craft Apron
-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Mintia can boost and counter boost.
- Mintia reduces fire, ice, lightning and beam damage by 50%.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. 'Dark star' - VS one chr - etd
2. 'Bibo attack' - STATT VS all chrs - %DMG, reduces current HP by 25%
3. 'Bibo drain' - STATT VS one chr - reduces hit chr's HP to 1, restores
   drained amount to Mintia
4. Dark Star E - VS one chr - etd, pushes chr into rearguard
5. Dark Snake E/S - VS one chr - etd, induces Attack Poison
6. Shadow Eye S - VS one chr - induces DEX down
7. Special Chains S - VS one chr - induces (Circle) Attack Disable

-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Potential damage output is: both Dark Star and 'Dark star' 200 dmg, Snake 200
dmg, attack with Bibo 250 dmg to all.

Momo is a must have chr. As Mintia can only be hammered with Triangle attacks
(in Jr's case it doesn't matter), and TATK that have far/all enemies attribute,
I'd recommend sending in Jr (Mintia's low VIT stat) and Shion as well. And you
can't use AGWS in this battle, cos Mintia doesn't like them - wow, what a
reason. Mintia has annoyingly high cboost rate, so you'll need to be on your
guard most of the time. Oh, make sure you *steal* both Penguin Rod and Craft
Apron!

When battle starts, Mintia will almost surely go first. Now pay close attention
- while Mintia's attacks aren't that strong (200 to 250 dmg), it is *not*
recommended that you keep fighting in top shape. See, Mintia has an attack,
where she targets the chr with highest current HP and drains all that HP for
herself - now, compare the difference between restoring 300 or 1000 HP. So,
fight in such a fashion that you can take two, maybe three Mintia's attacks,
before you heal with Med Kits or Medicas.

Put Jr in vanguard, Momo behind him, Shion occupies one of remaining vanguard
slots. Jr casts Dandyism on self, then keeps shooting Mintia with various TATK
(equip Double Buster if you have it), while Shion heals/attacks/provides status
buffs (depending on situation), and Momo mostly heals.

Beware of Mintia's attacks, that deal status ailments. I don't care about DEX
down, but Attack Poison and sealed TATK aren't cute to look at, so make sure
you quickly remove them. If Shion gets pushed in rearguard because of Dark
Star, don't move her back in vanguard straight away - assess the situation
first (does anyone need healing, etc.), then move her back.

Bibo is Mintia's own eyeball thingey - it will either damage all chrs for
around 250 dmg, or drain HP. If latter happens and you've been listening to the
advice of keeping HP at medium levels, HP restored will not be significant
enough on your way to victory.
************************** VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS! ************************


After defeating Mintia, Momo learns TATK Dark Scepter.

We're ready for final destination! Save your game, then talk to Matthews and
choose first option. Time to kick ass!

When your party arrives, head out of Elsa's cabin and thru the airlock. Go
down stairs and left - blow up six crates (kill Delphyne). Nothing, eh? Return
to base of stairs, but now go N and kill Work Droid at the end, then collect
DEFIBRILLATOR VEST. Return to the stairs yet again, ascend them and then use
the linear path (kill three Work Droids along the way) until you enter the
complex.

Walk N until you get to movable walkway - go E and you'll find yellow can and
three crates (one of them hides Delphyne). Collect 2x ETHER PACK DX & 2x FRAME
REPAIR A, then descend the ladder nearby. Down here you can collect 2x ETHER
PACK DX, 2x MED KIT DX, 2x BIO SPHERE & 2x FRAME REPAIR Z and kill four Work
Droids.

There's four switches which control bridges - two at W part of the storage
room and two at N part. I'll refer to them as SW switch, W switch (these two
are on W side), N switch and NE switch (these two are at N side). Press W
switch to raise a bridge, then press SW switch to lower a bridge. Now press NE
switch to raise a bridge (access to elevator is made), then make use of
running walkway. Go for the elevator and you will reach floor 40.

Go to floor 41 and take W door - kill Delphyne and go thru N door. Here check
everything for a scene. Back to the stairs and ascend to floor 42 (kill
Delphyne) where you should again take W door. In next room take N door and
explore - check monitors for another scene, and blow up the crate in a corner
of the room for Delphyne.

Ascend to floor 43 - kill Delphyne en route, and again take W door. This time
you can access two N room - right one has a crate with 2x FRAME REPAIR Z, and
in control room you can save your game, as well as examine a big hologram.
Back to the stairs and onto floor 44, where you take the final exit. Kill
Delphyne, then blow up the blue glass in front of the chest for REJUVENATOR.
Beware of Demon - kill it - then nab DRAGON ROD from the chest. Continue W and
kill another Demon. You will see two doors on this side - one can't be opened
yet, while the other leads to another staircase leading you down.

On floor 43 you can press the switch to raise the barrier and grant yourself
access to the whole floor 43 without the need to use the staircases. To the
left of the switch is a door leading to a room - destroy the wall panel for
SEGAD 17.

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE159.jpg

Collect BLOOD9 from the chest. Back to the staircase, past Demon and onto
floor 42 - here another Demon awaits defeat and another switch to be pressed.
Doing so enables access to blocked S area on floor 44. Going to floor 41
(you'll need to kill two Demons on the way) leads to M CHIP GUARD, obtained
from the chest in a dead end. Return to floor 43 and save your game in control
room, then go up to the middle of floor 44 and walk S.

Here go E first, defeat Xanthosis and blow up two panels at the end to reveal
a passage, leading to another blasting zone with a chest with CHAKRA SHIELD.
Going all the way left leads to Iosys fight. When it's defeated, take note of
path leading S - at the end you'll be asked if you want to jump down. A heavy
boss follows, so doublecheck your status to make sure you're well prepared.
- I'd recommend LV36
- all chrs should know Medica All, Boost 1 and Quick; chaos should also know
  Supreme Judgment, while Kosmos is well equipped with Ether Limit
- for skills set Damage-10, Speed+25% and AGL+1
- make sure you equip beam TATK for both Shion (Spell Ray) and Kosmos (Rcannon
  or Xbuster - I recommend latter)
- MAKE SURE YOU SET RBLADE FOR KOSMOS IN BOTH HI AND LOW SLOT
- slap Double Buster and Speed Shoes on Kosmos
- invest some TPTS in VIT and EDEF

-------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTE/S -----------------------------
- Proto Dora has weakness to beam attacks.
- Schutz has weakness to lightning attacks.
- Schutz and Dora can boost and counter boost.
------------------------------ PROTO DORA ATTACKS ---------------------------
1. Beam shield up! - on itself - raises shield that deflects beam damage
2. Steel Press P - VS all chrs - phd
3. Beam E - VS one chr - etd
4. Beam shield damaged! [Beam defense xx%] - after taking 20 beam hits,
   shield's defense capabilities drop in 25% decrements
5. Begin energy recharge! - charge turn for Sonic Buster
6. Sonic Buster E - VS all chrs - etd
7. Relief Goods - on itself - recovers 2380 HP
8. Beam Shield destroyed! - shield is damaged 100% and is now gone, beam
   attacks also do full damage again
-------------------------------- SCHUTZ ATTACKS -----------------------------
1. 'Beam laser' - BATT VS one chr - beam etd
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Damage output report is as follows: 'Beam laser' 50 dmg to one, Press 220 dmg
to all, Beam 250 dmg to one, Buster 700 dmg to all. This bastard was the
toughest one to write a strategy for, mainly cos of the fact I was looking for
a way to quickly destroy its Beam shield. And, by Kosmos, I found one!

Battle has begun! Kosmos will likely get to act first cos of all of AGL
increasing stuff we've thrown on her, but even is she doesn't go first, this
matters not. Damage from Schutzes is of minor importance, what *is* important
is using beam attacks against Dora ASAP - so launch Rcannon or Xbuster
(whichever you set on Kosmos) and Dora will take huge damage from it. If
either chaos or Shion get a turn before Dora's, have them cast Boost 1 on
Kosmos (while the spell animation is unfolding, press relevant boost button
like crazy to have it activate immediately) and release another Rcannon or
Xbuster combo.

Dora gets its first turn and sets up its Beam shield. Temporarily all damage
from beam attacks is deflected and you're left with two options - either you
attack it relentlessly with beam attacks 80 times and destroy it in the end,
or you resort to little trick I found and destroy the whole shield in just two
attacks. I'm sure this got your attention, so read on...

Anyway, after shield is in place, get rid of the two stooges that are
alongside Dora - if Xbuster was used, odds are they're already low on HP, if
not gone. Don't forget to heal lost HP, as Dora will no longer just stand by -
Press and Beam hurt a lot. Did you get rid of both Schutzes? Excellent, time
for next steps. Have all chrs cast Boost 1 until they have BG of 3. Now have
Kosmos guard so she gains 6 AP for next turn - now attack Dora and use Punch,
Rblade, Rblade. When Dora gets next turn, you'll see that you destroyed 50% of
its beam shield. ONLY RBLADE WORKS IN THIS FASHION! No other tech attack I
tried achieved the same result.

Steve S. writes: I've found out that chaos' Heaven's Wrath achieved the same
result as RBlade of Kosmos. Since Heaven's Wrath is a combo of lighthing and
slash attack, it's twice the charm, hehe.

Sweet, huh? Simply have Kosmos defend again, and on next turn repeat the
exercise for beam shield to be completely obliterated. Kosmos rocks, doesn't
she? Now, with two of your chrs being able to deal huge damage to Dora, while
chaos recovers HP as needed, battle is already won, correct? Not really,
considering Dora has more attacks left (and it will use them a lot thanks to
boosting and cboosting), not to mention its dirty trick it used to kill my
party few times.

When Dora is at about half HP, message [Begin energy recharge!] will pop up.
Immediately cease all attacks and recover your health to 800 and above. If you
have any Veils, now's the time to use them, preferably as W-item with 6 AP.
Sonic Buster, which will follow on Dora's next turn, is its strongest attack
for whopping 700 dmg to all (defending will reduce the damage to about 550).
After sustaining first blast you're safe - for now. Continue your assault
until Dora hits 4000 and below damage limit.

It will use Relief Goods in itself and recover 2380 damage - nothing you can
do about that. Proceed making holes in Dora's armor until it uses Relief Goods
yet again for second and final time. You're almost there, just the final
stretch of battle remains to be seen. Until Dora's HP becomes 2999 or lower,
you'll be hammered by Beam and Press. When the noted HP limit is crossed,
dreaded message about recharging energy appears again. Maintain your HP at 800
and above to survive - Dora now gains fixed attack pattern, which is: [Begin
energy recharge!], Sonic Buster, Beam or Press, Beam or Press, repeat.

Dora's cboost ability should be taken into account in following scenario -
Kosmos has a turn, and Dora's next. You know next move for Dora will be energy
charging, so you don't need to heal yet - therefore you decide to attack Dora.
Dora cboosts, and also has next attack, which means - energy charge will be
used, and followed immediately by Sonic Buster, greatly damaging, if not
wiping out your entire party, thus getting early Game Over. Here's how to
counteract that unfortunate event. Make sure you have some BG handy. DURING
energy charge animation, QUICKLY HAVE ONE OF YOUR CHRS USE BOOST. This will
interrupt Dora's next regular turn and allow you to heal yourself in time -
hell, you may even throw in another boost and heal again. This will ensure you
don't get caught off guard and wiped out.

Now that you know what to expect from Dora in any stage of the battle, kicking
its ass will no longer be a problem (except your foot hurting, that is).

DECODER 6 SI is yours. This now completes the collection... but where's the
door it unlocks? Just a bit ahead. Head for the ladder in the back, climb it,
kill Xanthosis if you wish, then enter two N doors.

Another big room - advance N and check the console for a scene. Kill three
Demons in here to have some peace and quiet for the exploration. In SE corner
of the room you can unlock the door leading to floor 44 (at the same time also
allowing you access back to the Elsa, thus being able to complete any other
quests you may have missed, unlocking SEGADs, etc.), while blowing away some
wall panels grants access to a ladder leading to the bottom of the room
just below the space projector. Here blow away the panel at the end of the
path for SEGAD 6...

kolardamir.com/xse1/XenoE161.jpg

Inside you'll find TRAUMA PLATE. Go back up the ladder and use N exit to reach
a corridor leading E - use the exit here to reach a circular room with three
Armaros floating around. Watch out, for they're quite tough. Taking big N door
leads to a scene. When it finished, you'll end up in previous room. Go E, then
descend the stairs to reach the elevator. Use it and go waaay down. Use a save
point here. THIS IS FINAL SAVE POINT OF THE GAME.

When your game is saved, go left and operate the panel. Prepare yourself for
some heavy battling. You'll fight various combinations of Armaros, Baraqijal
and Azazel (four battles total). When the elevator finishes its descent, use
it again to go back to the save point. Save your game, then reuse the
elevator.

- I'd recommend LV40
- if you can spare some time, evolve Ziggy's Speed Boost and transfer it to
  chaos, Kosmos and Shion
- all chrs should know Medica All, Boost 1, and Quick (or preferably Speed
  Boost); have chaos learn Light & Wings, while Kosmos is well equipped with
  Ether Limit
- for skills set Damage-10, Speed+25% and CRTC Guard
- make sure you equip strongest TATK for both Shion and Kosmos (most likely it
  will be their beam TATK - also don't forget Rblade)
- invest some TPTS in VIT and EDEF

Cheese Victory Strategy - have chaos learn Cataclysm, and then transfer this
ether to both Kosmos and Shion. Don't forget to set this ether, or else you
won't be able to use it.

On bottom floor go right, then up. Cross the bridge littered with enemies and
go up. On next screen go up again until scene kicks in...

- Boss reduces fire, ice, lightning and beam damage by 75%.
----------------------------------- ATTACKS ---------------------------------
1. Demonic Gaze [Soul S] - VS one chr - %DMG, tears off 50% MAX HP
2. Ruby Fist P - VS one chr - phd, induces Armor Loss (on mechs)
3. Phoenix Wing E - VS all chrs - etd
4. Demonic Illusion S - on himself - raises his speed by 50%
5. Spirit Rage S - on himself - raises EATK, charge turn for Fallen Angel
6. Fallen Angel E - VS one chr - etd
7. Demonic Gaze [Mist S] - VS one chr - induces confusion and EP damage
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Let's discuss damage output first - Fist deals 150 dmg to one, Wing 200 dmg to
all, Angel 700 dmg to one. Light & Wings ether of chaos will be essential in
clearing off AGL and EATK boosts boss will be giving himself, while Supreme
Judgment meddles with his ability to recover HP. While not completely
worthless, using element attacks (except spirit) against the boss is waste of
energy, as he reduces the damage by 75%.

Boss uses Soul S move quite often - as it tears off 50% target's MAX HP, it is
not a good idea to use AGWS in this battle. What if boss recovers over 3000 HP
cos he drained AGWS? Rely solely on your chrs. Boss is fairly resistant to
ETATK (along with aforementioned reduction of most element damage), therefore
I recommend using PATK - Kosmos' Rblade will work wonders on making mincemeat
out of the boss.

Except for Fallen Angel, the rest of boss' moves aren't really strong - he
also possesses three attacks that don't inflict damage: Rage will increase his
EATK (clear it off with Light & Wings), Illusion will increase his AGL, and he
may also try to confuse one chr with Mist S attack (use Neuro Stim to remove
the status). It is evident that the most danger lurks in Illusion - having a
guy with AGL of 18 beating you up isn't a pretty sight to look at, which is
another reason I recommended chaos' Light & Wings.

Boss' Fist and Wing deal moderate damage which you should handle with Medica
All ether. As for Angel attack, it is quite easy to anticipate, as boss will
perform Rage attack one turn before Angel is used. Even though boss uses Soul
S on quite a regular basis, he can't heal for more than some 600 HP.

You should begin the battle by having everyone cast Boost 1 on themselves
until they've accumulated BG of 3 (if boss raises his EATK or AGL, prioritize
in dispeling it), followed by casting Quick or Speed Boost in order to keep up
or even outrun the boss in amount of attacks we can launch. Now we're set and
can proceed by decreasing boss' HP to zero. Take care to never let chr's HP
drop below half or chr will be killed if Soul S is used. Once his HP starts to
diminish, he'll start powering up or trying to haste his actions by raising
AGL - negate his chances by Light & Wings. Also take into account the chances
of boss cboosting - thus have two chrs attack and third one healing - don't
take any unnecessary risks. Healing possible confusion induces by Mist S is a
simple matter. For the grand finale start boosting and launch your fiercest
attacks - if by chance boss cboosts and uses a damaging attack, it's more wise
to use one of your own boosts to heal the wounds.

------------------------------- RATATOSK ATTACKS ----------------------------
1. Blade of Dissolution E - VS all chrs - etd
2. Demagogue E/S - VS all chrs - etd, induces EATK Down
-------------------------------- BOSS STRATEGY ------------------------------

Damage output report is as follows: Swarm deals 300 dmg to one, Omen 800 dmg
to all, Rain 250 dmg to all, Column 150 to one, 'stab' 150 dmg to one, Self
Destruct 200 dmg to all, Blade 150 dmg to all. If any Jaldas are summoned,
they must be killed before boss can be targeted. Summoned Ratas don't obstruct
the firing range, ie you can attack either Ratas or the main boss. Fortunately
boss has AGL of 6, making it very slow in getting to regular turns.

When the battle begins, recover everyone's HP and EP you might have lost from
last battle, then apply Boost 1 until all three chrs have BG of 3. Only attack
during this period will be Swarm - easily countered by Med Kit DX. When ready,
proceed using your strongest TATK against final boss. After is loses 25% of
HP, it'll start summoning Jaldas (one at a time) and boosting. After three
Jaldas are summoned, boss skips next regular turns.

Jalda is quite dangerous - if damaged even a little bit, it may cboost and
selfdestruct on next turn, causing damage. It is therefore of great
importance, that you're in top shape before attempting to kill any of the
Jaldas. When three Jaldas are gone (whatever the cause), you'll get to deal
with two Ratas. Again, enemy possible of cboosting when you least need it do -
apply same safety procedures as you did with last one - be healed up before
you attempt killing one. Only this time their counters hurt a lot as well. You
should also watch out for final boss itself, for its firing range is not
obstructed by Ratas, meaning you will receive punishment from boss as well.

As first Rata is summoned, Swarm is no longer used - you will now face Shadow
Rain, Dark Prophet, Eternal Vestige and White Light. In worst case scenario
you will face Dark Omen, boss strongest ether attack. It deals around 800 dmg
to all chrs. When it's used, it is prime time to use boosts and heal yourself
to full with two Medica Alls. The earliest I had the boss use Dark Omen on me
was after all Jaldas and Ratas have been exterminated with boss itself being
around 9700 HP - I was attacking it and it cboosted on me, then used Dark
Omen. Thankfully I was at full HP, so I survived.

Okay, so you killed all summoned Gnosis and are prepared to enter the final
part of battle? Always have two chrs at standby and/or healing (all chrs' HP
must be at least 900 or above), while third chr (most likely Kosmos and her
Rblade or Rcannon) attacks the boss. At one point it will cboost - the sign of
Dark Omen being used. Take the punishment of around 850 dmg (getting hit for
critical dmg is impossible due to CRTC Guard we extracted from Trauma Plate),
then use two Medica Alls to restore HP to full.

I have observed boss attack pattern after it uses Dark Omen for the first time
and have concluded the following - boss will not cboost anymore, and enters
following attack pattern - Dark Omen, Vestige, three or four Shadow Rains,
Prophet, Dark Omen, repeat. The points at which boss uses White Light cannot
be determined - for all I know it could be random, cos I've had it use White
Light even I wasn't under any POSSE.

Just recently I defeated the boss, which didn't get any attack in. Wonder how?
When battle starts, all you have to do is cast Cataclysm on final boss. It
will *never* get an attack in, and you just need to be careful not to run out
of EP or accidentally launching normal attacks or TATK against the boss.

10.)                         TECH ATTACKS - G1000
=============================================================================
=============================================================================

Let's start by some basic information about TATK. All chrs, escept Kosmos,
gain new TATK by simply leveling up. Kosmos' new TATK come in the form of
emails.

Tech attacks are executed after one or two normal attacks by pressing circle.

TATK has three so-called 'stats':
- TECH:  denotes TATK's attack power; the higher the tech level, the stronger
         the TATK becomes; except few TATK most of them can be leveled up to
         level 50 (you need crazy amounts ot TPTS, of course)
- SPEED: can be either HIGH or LOW; LOW means that you will be able to use
         said TATK only when you previously execute two normal attacks,
         followed by TATK (you require 6 AP); HI means that you will be able
         to use said TATK every turn, using only one normal attack (you
         require only 4 AP)
- WAIT:  denotes faster recovery after TATK was used; the higher the wait
         level, the faster chr recovers after TATK chr used

If you want to use TATK in battle, you must SET them in their respective
slots. TATK with FAR or AIR attack attribute can only be set in slots, which
are preceeded by one or two triangle attacks. Slots, which contain square,
square-square, square-triangle or triangle-square attacks, can only be
occupied by TATK with NEAR or HIT attribute.

TATK with 'tech cost' listed as none cannot be leveled up. All other TATK can
be leveled as high as level 50 - needless to says, TPTS required for such
levels is quite big as well. Numbers in parenthesis next to initial number in
'tech cost' entry means amount of additional TPTS required to reach next
level. For example, to level up Kosmos' Rblade for first time, you need 130
TPTS. To level it up for second time, you need 180 TPTS, as pointed out by
(50+). To make third level up, TPTS requirement is now 230 TPTS. Understood?

All TATK except Ziggy's Meteor Shot have three levels of wait time: A2, A1 and
A0. Only Meteor Shot has four: A3, A2, A1 and A0.

11.)                        ETHER ABILITIES - G1100
=============================================================================
=============================================================================

Ether abilities (or ethers) are like magic. You need EP to cast them. No EP
means no magic. Ethers can be classified in three categories:

- ATTACK : these are ethers that deal damage to the enemy and are represented
           by a red icon in Ether list
- HEALING: these are ethers that recover HP or negate status ailments and are
           represented by a green icon in Ether list
- SUPPORT: these are ethers that bestow helpful status ailments or induce
           negative status ailments and are represented by a purple icon in
           Ether list

You need EPTS to allow your chrs to learn new ethers. EPTS are also used to
transfer some of chr's ethers to other chrs, like for example having Shion
transfer Medica All to Kosmos. Not all ethers are transferrable. Transfer cost
is 1/2 of ether's evolve cost.

To be able to use ethers in battle, you have to SET them in Ether menu. You
also have to take into account ethers' WT stat - it cannot exceed maximum
value of 12. If it does, you will not be able to set desired ether. Stronger
ethers have higher WT value.

Ether skills marked with asterisk (*) cannot be transferred to other chrs.

Momo's transformations caused by Starlight and Star Wind have following
properties:
- normally Momo is transformed for two turns before reverting back
- if her HP is below 50% at the time of transformation, she is transformed for
  3 turns before reverting back
- if her HP is below 25% at the time of transformation, she is transformed for
  4 turns before reverting back

13.)                            SKILLS - G1300
=============================================================================
=============================================================================

Most acc, some armors and some helmets have extra effects when equipped - for
example Purple Ring acc raises wearer's EATK by 2 points when equipped. But if
your chr has enough EPTS, you can extract skill EATK+2 from Purple Ring. You
can then equip that skill without having Purple Ring equipped.

Equipping skills (up to three at one time) and extracting skills is done under
Skills entry in main menu. If you want to extract a certain skill, you must
ensure that relevant piece of equipment IS NOT EQUIPPED ON ANY CHR!

Before skill can be extracted, your chr needs to have enough SPTS and high
enough SLV. In order to reach higher SLV and extract higher levels skills, chr
must extract skills that belong to lower SLV - eventually enough SPTS will be
expended to allow chr to advance to next SLV, as shown here:

1st SLV - initial level
2nd SLV - 200 EPTS
3rd SLV - 800 EPTS
4th SLV - 1800 EPTS
5th SLV - 4500 EPTS

Some of the skills allow double effect. That means that if you equip both the
skill and piece of equipment you extracted skill from, you will have double
benefit from such combination. For example: equip Tech P+25 skill and
Swimsuit, then go do battle. After the battle you will gain 50% more TPTS.
