    I. Introduction
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This is a guide for the Battle Arena in Gemity, which cannot be
    accessed until disc 2. You can participate the moment you arrive,
    and is a good place for exp and Fol depending on which battles you
    participate in. 
    
    To access it: After arriving in Gemity, head as far north as you
    can, and enter the teleporter. Then talk to the lady to start.
    
    There are 3 modes of combat, Single, Team, and Ranking. The first
    two require a small fee to enter, and must finish five rounds of 
    combat. The 3rd is the most difficult but is the most rewarding.
    
    If you feel like sending in any battle strategies or tips, go ahead. 
    I'll see if I can add it somewhere.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    II. Single Battle
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    As the name implies, you pick one of your characters to participate
    in a single battle. There are 5 battles you must win, and if you
    win all 5 rounds, you get a reward. Since you are by yourself, you
    must be cautious against strong enemies.
    
    There are 5 Ranks you can participate, which affect the difficulty.
    
    Rank       Fee            Reward
    D Rank     100 Fol        Magical Berries
    C Rank     300 Fol        Mallet Charm
    B Rank     500 Fol        Bunny Shoes
    A Rank     1000 Fol       Star Guard
    S Rank     2000 Fol       Imposing Scroll
    
    You can get the Rank C-D rewards more than once by using a different 
    character (one time per char), while you can only get the Rank S-B 
    rewards only once.
    
    Tips:
    - You should get the hang of using Cancel Bonus often, as that is
      the key to quick easy victories. You'll be using it a lot, in all
      the modes in the Arena, so better get used to using it.
    
    - You can use a synthed weapon as well, to make the battles even
      easier. On Rank S, a fully synthed weapon is recommended.
    
    - Use items over Symbology, since it is faster. Use Physical/Mental
      Enhancers, as you can simply buy them from the shops in Gemity. 
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    A. Single Battle - Rank D
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    Info:
    - This is a easy way to get Magical Berries if you need any.
    - The first time you get here, this should be no problem for you.
      If you're having trouble on this rank, either your lvls/equipment 
      are not good, or you need to play better.

      prevent that
    --------------------------
    Round 5:
    Master Demon
    HP: 500,000    Exp: 13,000
    MP: 30,000     Fol: 4900
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    E. Single Battle - Rank S
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    Info:
    - Cancel Bonus is the key to quick victories here.
    - First 3 fights are easy, difficulty increases a bit on last 2.
    - This mode is good for some Exp for the char you're using.
    
    --------------------------
    Round 1:
    Nova Blaze
    HP: 85,000     Exp: 4580
    MP: 1800       Fol: 4150
    --------------------------
    Round 2:
    Masque Looter
    HP: 79,365     Exp: 5840
    MP: 3607       Fol: 6500
    --------------------------
    Round 3:
    Sharow
    HP: 82,000     Exp: 5300
    MP: 5000       Fol: 6500
    --------------------------
    Round 4:
    Huge Chimera
    HP: 182,900    Exp: 17,000
    MP: 3645       Fol: 23,000
    
    Tips:
    - Basically the same as the Chimera in Rank B, just less HP. Fight
      him as you normally would.
    --------------------------
    Round 5:
    Render Tyrant
    HP: 500,000    Exp: 25,000
    MP:  13,728    Fol: 65,000
    
    Tips:
    - The Render Tyrant has an attack called Ice Beam. When he starts
      charging up for it, move away from his front side, as that is 
      where he fires it. If you get hit, your HP will drop quickly,
      unless you're strong enough to possibly take the hit.
    - A synthed weapon is recommended.
    - If you want, use a stun bomb to cancel his Ice Beam.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    III. Team Battle
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Just like Single Battle, except you can use your party. This is
    actually somewhat easier, since you're really just fighting the
    same groups of enemies. Some of them are in multiple groups, but 
    still no real threat as long as you know what you're doing.
    
    Rank       Fee            Reward
    D Rank     100 Fol        Synthesis Materials
    C Rank     300 Fol        Tri-Emblum
    B Rank     500 Fol        Scumbag Slayer
    A Rank     1000 Fol       Star Splash
    S Rank     2000 Fol       Ring of Slaughter
    
    You can get the Rank C-D rewards up to 6 times, while you can 
    only get the Rank S-B rewards only once.
    
    When I list Exp/Fol values, that's for the individual enemy if 
    there is more of the same type, it's not combined.
    
    Tips:
    - Since you have a team, these battles aren't as difficult as
      the Single Battles. Have someone be healer if needed though.

    Render Tyrant x1
    HP: 500,000    Exp: 25,000
    MP: 13,728     Fol: 65,000
    
    Tips:
    - Since you have 2 others with you, you don't have to worry about
      his Ice Beam attack as much (unless you're all lined up)
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    IV. Ranking Battle
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Unlike the other modes, you register a name for your team, and
    compete against 50 other teams. You only have to deal with one battle
    at a time instead of five, which makes the beginning rather easy.
    
    Here are the names you can choose from:
    - Knights Between Time
    - Steel Knights
    - Arthur and the Knights of Teatable
    - Rebels Without an Existence
    - Arcane Warriors of the Black Brigade
    - Mystic Dragon Eyes
    - Onward! Defrosted Tuna Team
    - Fayt and Company
    
    According to EChang's PA Guide, your party members like certain names:
    Sophia likes the 8th one best; Maria likes the 1st; Cliff likes the 2nd; 
    Nel likes the 4th; Albel likes the 5th; Roger likes the 3rd; Peppita 
    likes the 7th. Mirage doesn't like any one in particular, but the 1st, 
    5th, and the 6th raise her feelings towards you slightly, whereas the 
    7th one lowers them slightly. But other than this, it doesn't really
    matter what you pick.
    
    After registering your team name, a menu is brought up with all these
    team names. Yours is at the very bottom. You can fight up to four ranks 
    ahead of you. You advance up by winning against teams higher rank than 
    yours. Each time you win you also get prize money based on the teams 
    you beat. If you lose a battle, your rank may drop by one.
    
    Tips:
    - When you first try this out, you should be able to get to Rank 20-30.
    
    - At around Rank 15-20, battles will increase in difficulty (depending on 
      your lvl though). At this time, have synthed weapons to make it easier, 
      which should get you to Rank 5 or so, depending on equipment and lvls.
    
    - For easy lvling and some quick cash near beginning, fight the 
      "Get Em! Twin Beast!!" team, as they aren't really hard but give a good 
      Exp/Fol amount, especially with the Triple Exp and Double Fol bonuses.
    
    - The "Demon Lords" team is actually stronger than the "Dragoon Knights"
      because of the way the Demon Lord fights. However, they give more Fol.
    
    - If you have the "Enemy ATK +100% 10x Fol" factor, you can very easily
      make millions if you face the "Dragoon Knights" team. Refer to Xythar's
      Money Making FAQ for more info on this.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    A. Ranking Battles - Teams
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Upon winning these battles, you get a Fol prize. I put the Fol prize 
    next to the team name. I've arranged the teams as lowest Fol prize 
    and increasing. Do note this is basically how the rankings are 
    normally, difficulty increasing as you move up.

    Miriam x1
    HP: 1,800,000  Exp: 0
    MP: 300,000    Fol: 156,000
    
    Tips:
    - The Demon Lord is the main threat, try to take him out first.
    - Don't have to, but you may want to keep someone far from the fight
      to heal the others if needed.
    - Try not to be grouped together, the Demon Lord can kill easily you 
      with some of his area-effect attacks.
    - Stun bombs can cancel attacks for a short while. If the Demon Lord
      is gonna use an attack like Sword of Darkness, just use a stun bomb.
    
    Battle Strategy (from Master LL):
    "{Sword attack}
    Run away, then counter when the "burning field" is dissipating.
    
    {Crimson Sword}
    AAA, then counter attack
    
    {Sword of Darkness (the summon)}
    Run in a straight line in away from him, then a U-shape direction to 
    get behind him. The summon will move in a weird zig-zag attack
    
    After getting away safely, you have a few seconds to recover. You can 
    also set up a high Cancel Bonus combo so right when the Demon Lord comes 
    out of the attack, he'll take full damage.
    
    {Flashing Sword}
    Teleport sword attack... AAA, then counterattack.
    
    {AAA suggestion: Standard}
    Stunning him will give you time to heal up quickly or anything else. 
    After AAA, wait till he has full Fury before counterattack... that way his 
    own fury will drop to 50% so he can attack and retaliate less."

    Crystal Dragon x1
    HP: 2,500,000  Exp: 30,000
    MP: 300,000    Fol: 17,000
    
    Tips:
    - The Dragoon can be easily killed if you got a weapon with Freezing.
      In fact, it's highly recommended, as the main focus of battle is the 
      Crystal Dragon.
    - Equipment with Fire resistence (ex: the Reflecting Armor found in the 
      Maze of Tribulations) will nullify most of the Crystal Dragon's attacks.
    
    Battle Strategy (from Master LL):
    "Crystal Dragon - Slow as a turtle, he is extremely hard to prone and 
    stunlock at lower level.
    
    His Howl of Doom is the biggest threat he has. It does a shield aura 
    around him dealing major HP/MP damage.
    
    All his other attacks can be AAA. Even his Atomic Breath attack (a flying 
    firebreath attack which he only does when he's low on HP/MP).
    
    Obviously his spells can't be AAA so run to avoid it easily.
    
    The best tactic is to go after the Dragoon first. It's extremely wise 
    to fight the Dragoon far away from the Crystal Dragon to prevent less 
    damage (like from his Howl and Fire attacks).
    
    {AAA Suggestion: Standard}
    Again, great to interupt the attack. Counterattack only when his fury is 
    full... so you'll deal critical damage and drop his Fury by 50% 
    (thus he can counterattack much less)."

    B. Ranking Battles - Reigning Champions
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Once you've reached Rank 1, you'll get a challenge from the current
    Reigning Champions. They are the announcers you've had to deal with
    while you were at the arena: Dirna and Solon. These 2 are a good
    challenge, and strong weapons and some good lvls (65+) is recommended.
    
    Here are their stats:
    
    Dirna Hamilton
    Hp: 3,000,000  Exp: 110,000
    MP: 500,000    Fol: 415,000
    Drop: Spirit of Lilith
    
    Solon Solute
    Hp: 500,000    Exp: 50,000
    MP: 50,000     Fol: 0
    
    Tips:
    - Solon may have low HP but he's rather strong. Should take him out first.
    - If you use Stun bombs often on Dirna, she shouldn't be much of a threat.
    
    Battle Strategy (from Master LL):
    "Keep Dirna stunlocked. AAA if she uses her normal attack (she'll say 
    RUN!!) otherwise, avoid. Run like hell when she uses Explosion, Arcane 
    Stars or Fireball (can do up to 2000 damage).
    
    Solon will auto-parry everything in front of him. His weakness is his 
    back... he's easy to kill if you have Cliff or a tanker in front of him 
    (distracting him) while you hit him from behind.
    
    All of Solon's attack can be AAA except for his obvious strong attack."
    
    --------------------------
    
    For defeating this duo, you get the Victory Trophy, an impressive
    accessory with 8 factors that will make most battles even easier than
    before.
    
    Here are the factors the Victory Trophy has:
    > -40% Battle Skill HP Use
    > -2 Fury
    > +10 enemy Fury reduction when guard broken
    > 6% MP reocvery at intervals during battle
    > 1/2 casting time
    > Raises normal attack decision by 2
    > Freezing (Attack effect)
    > Shoots balls of light when attacking
    
    Afterwards, you are free to do whatever you wish in the Arena, as you've
    completed the Ranking Battle. If you still haven't did the Single/Team 
    Battles, do so now if you want.
