get asked over and over.

email me, I 'll try to make thisb FAQ as complete as possible!
Have fun !!

v1.01 : Added all the missions

General Questions:

Q : Why can't I use the Hyper Arts?
A : You have to learn them from books or events first, or get them by leveling
up the weaker form

Q : Why can't I use the Variable Arts?
A : Because you have not been taugth the first one yet. Kazan will teach you
the second time through
the Woods of Hunting (I think, somebody correct). If you have already learnt
them, maybe you are not doing a start with an end. Last case is that you have
not enough AP (some items augment the number of AP needed)

Q : Why can't I use the Mystic Arts?
A : Because you don't have your Origin yet. Or not enough AP?

Q : Why can't Maya attack?
A : Be patient, she will get her speech and magic back in an event (Chapel of
St Joprian, battle against
Zoan Stora, see below)

Departure

Q : Can I win again the Golden Haired Guy?
A : NO ;) Come on, that would finish the game before it starts. Play Chrono
Trigger if you want to do that ;)

Valley of the Wind

Q : Can I win against the Eliot and Mariene?
A : Not again. As much as you hate them and would like to win, there is no way
to do so.

Darakin (second time, returning with Kazan)

Q : I can't enter the hotel in the rich part of the town
A : You need to get the 'Nobleman's Emblem' from .... the garbage in the poor
part of the town (just left from the gate linking both parts)

Q : Where is that blasted trapdoor to the sewers?
A : In the hotel in the rich quarter, on the first floor, look in the bathroom
of the small room, the north one.

Sewers

Q : I have gone all the way through the sewer, and I exit near the garbage,
What did I miss?
A : Just before you go back up to the town, you should notice a damaged wall to
the left of the ladder. Using Lang's Origin on it will open the passage to the
Ruins

Ruins of Kabel

Q : What to do it the room with the fish plate, and pedestals with characters?
A : Light the pedestals with the letters for the word F I S H with Maya's
Origin.

Q : What do I do in the room with the colored pedestals?
A : Light them in the order : Yellow Blue Red Green

Q : And in the Room with the 12 pedestals and only one lit?
A : If you think it as a clock with the 12 Hour lit, light in order : 7, 3, 5,
2 o'clock

Chapel of St Joprian

Q : I can't beat this lizard looking boss, not attack seem to inflict any
damage.
A : If this is in the Chapel of St Joprian, then you should wait four turns,
then listen to the message and follow
the instructions with Maya.

Q : What are those intructions?
A : Earth Wind Water Fire, or if you still can't read those : U D R L. Do not
put any more commands, this shoudl hurt the boss and now you can finish it,
Maya also has now her powers back !!

Q : So what now?
A : Well, you just got back the water stone, which was the whole poitn of your
quest, so you should give it back to its proper place (back to Lang's
village).... END OF GAME ;) or not



After Black Sun

Q : Well, what should I do now ?
A : You now need to cross the Forest of Walde

Forest of Walde

Q : I seem to be going in circle, not going anywhere
A : You need the Red Sand of Misel to break to charm on the woods

Q : Where do I get it?
A : Kazan had some in his hut go there

Q : Everything is gone from the hut, including the sand, now what?
A : Remeber the grinning merchant, he has the sand. You can now find him in
Darakin.

Q : I spoke with Kenjiro, but I don't get the sand.
A : You need to give him a 'Tear of Kuchibiliona'

Q : How do I get that tear?
A : First you need to meet the plant like monster you already met once in the
Valley of the Winds, for that you should buy the 'Fugudorisou' from Kenjiro,
and USE it in any dungeon. All the encounters thereafter will be with Billiona,
and killing them should give you the Tear you need. Go back to Darakin and give
it to Kenjiro, then go to Walde and USE the Red Sand.

Calavia

Q : The gate is closed and I can't continue.
A : You need a permit to pass, it's back to Darakin again.

Ruin of Kabel 2

Q : The passage I used first time around are now blocked, I can't go on
A : You need to have Sharon with you to open an alternate route with NEW
puzzles, don't you just love those?

Q : Now in a room with a snake plate and letter pedestals
A : Just do the contrary of the first time, light all letters NOT in the word S
N A K E

Q : And again in a room with colored pedestals
A : Light them in the Rainbow order : Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo
Violet

Q : And now again in the 12 pedestals room
A : Same as last time, but now you extinguish those already lighted :
(L)ight 8
(E)xtinguish 4
L 7
L 3
E 8
L 1
L 5
E 12

Pirate Lair

Q: I have found the Pirates, and for some reason they don't seem to ne so bad
people, but I am blocked.
A: You need to find a source of power for their ship : head for the Electric
Mine

Volcano Island

Q: I have now come to Volcano Island, but I can't do anything.
A: After listening to the explaination of Kenjiro, you should head for Zinga.

Zinga

Q: What now?
A: Just go straight up and speak with the chief, Ein will join and it's back to
Volcano's

Floating Island

Q: I got it that I now have to get the last stone, but I can't reach the
floating island.
A: Of course, you can't fly as far as I know ;) But if you had a flying steed
now maybe

Q: So where do I get this flying steed?
A: It's the prize for the fighting tournament that has just opened in Goodrich

Q: Goodrich?
A: The casino island, you could have found it before, but if you have not, just
go and speak to John at the Inn in the poor quarter of Darakin?

Bonus:

Surnames
Some have use, other give information. Useful ones are listed below.
As for informative ones you have all the ones that tell you your character has
completed something that you can get by speaking to the old man in the City of
Stone.
All Arts Learned : See Arts FAQ
All Location Found
(looking for any info on other ones!!)

Ultimate Weapon
You need to get Lang to have the 'Best WeaponSmith' surname (Upgrade 30-40
times weapons in camp if you want to fasten the process do it with the cheap
stuff from the Junk Yard in Darakin) then go and Speak with Kenjiro in the
Pirate's Lair.

Ultimate Armor
Get the 'Best ArmorSmith' surname and go speak with Kenjiro ;)

Ultimate Accessory
There is no such thing !! Although you can get a surname for upgrading many
accessory

Ultimate Shop
I think I got it by speaking to Kenjiro's whatever, another Grinning Guy that
appears in your hometown.

Pirate's Booty
I can't tell exactly at which point you can do it but it would be after you get
the dragon I guess:
Go and speak to the two pirate on the ship, they ask for you help, say yes.
You get the Star Bandana
Now go and speak to the parrot in Sharon's room
You should now have the location of the treasure on your map

My Husband is in Prison! (Darakin-Calavia)
The guy in prison just right of the entrance of Calavia is actually the husband
of the woman with a small girl in the poor quarter of Calavia. First you should
speak with the wife in Darakin, then speaking to the husband you will get a
letter. Bring it back to the wife. Now go back to Calavia and check the prison
door. The guard asks you for 100K gold to free him. Pay and go back to Darakin,
you will get a sword for freeing him (and a warm felling as the family is
reunited ;) )

Zinga's Stone, The Hero's trip.
SPOILER :
You will not get anything great or particularly useful from solving this, so
you might as well try to figure it out for yourself as the feeling of
satisfaction at having solved this tricky puzzle is the best bonus.
If you really have to, then read below.
HINTS:
The stones plate in Zinga are linked to the totem statues all over the map.
Looking closely you will notice that the show one particular totem among many,
which one, you can guess from their relative position, the presence of stairs
...
You can TOUCH the totems (although it appears to have no effect ;) )
The Poems indicate the direction in which the Hero walks (facing the morning
sun...)
SOLUTION:
To get the hidden bonuses, you have to touch the totem in the order shown by
the stones. First you need to know the direction in which to read them. The
hint is included in the poem you get from reading the stones (even if you can't
get it, there are only two ways to read the three series).
Then you should look for the totem indicated by the stone and touch (action on
it, then choose the 'touch it' option) them in order. You will know you have
done it correctly if upon touching the last one you get an object.
None of the bonus you get is really great however.

Bounty Hunter Missions :
I personally advise you on clearing them as soon as you can, this will give you
the levels you need to clear the game without doing boring level up.


And everybody should thank shalave for making me do this :)
