----------------------
3.1)- Headhunter
----------------------
_______________________________________________________________________________
Name: Headhunter
Level: 5
Hp: 250
Pp: 90
Element: Darkness
Weakness: Thunder
Attacks: Ani Zot, Sword Swing
Difficulty: 3/10

Strategy: This guy is fairly easy. Issue the "Skills" command and allow Black
Rose to use her skills. Headhunter will cast Ani Zot to dish out around 50.
If he does this, use repth far away on Black Rose to heal her. Since 
Headhunter's weakness is lightning, use various lightning scrolls to dish out 
major damage. Eventualy, his green barrier will say "Protect Break". Go to you 
skills menu and select "Data Drain". You can now actually cause damage to it! 
Keep up this strategy and it will fall easily.
_______________________________________________________________________________

----------------------
3.2)- Rock Head
----------------------

_______________________________________________________________________________
Name: Rock Head
Level: 9
Hp: 410
Pp: 185
Element: Earth
Weakness: Wood
Attacks: Rig Saem (Heal 8 hp every 2 seconds), Slam, Rock twirl
Difficulty: 4/10

Strategy: This battle is a bit tougher, but not much. Issue the "skills"
command and have mistral cast wood spells/scrolls. You should be busy healing
party members and using wood based scrolls. Try not to let anyone die as you
do not want to waste any ressurects at this point in the game. You must 
constantly hit this guy because he heals 8 hp every 2 seconds!
_______________________________________________________________________________
 

-----------------------
3.3)- Red Wyrm
-----------------------

_______________________________________________________________________________
Name: Red Wyrm
Level: 10
Hp: 850
Pp: 105
Element: Fire
Weakness: Water
Attacks: Fire Breath, Vak Don, Tail slap
Difficulty: 6/10

Strategy: This guy can handle a LOT of damage. To make this even harder, you
are fighting with only Kite! Make sure you level up to at LEAST 13. The wyrm's
fire breath attack can deal a good 120 hp worth of damage. Use a burning oil
on yourself to cut this in half. To make things better, this also cuts the
50hp damage of it's Vak Don attack down to 20 or 30! It also helps to have
armor which raises your fire attribute. Use physical attacks on it until
you can data drain it. Once you do this, it will start using it's fire breath
attack much more fequently. Back off and use water based scrolls to deal
around 80 to 100 hp of damage to it.
_______________________________________________________________________________

-----------------------
3.4)- Stone Turtle
-----------------------

_______________________________________________________________________________
Name: Stone Turtle 
Level: 13
Hp: 1090
Pp: 1090
Element: Earth
Weakness: Wood
Attacks: Rig Saem (Heals 16 hp per 2 seconds), Smash, various earth spells
Difficulty: 5/10

Strategy: This battle is fought much like the Rock Head battle. You must con-
stantly dish out damage to counter the effects of Rig Saem! Issue "Skills"
command and allow Mia and Elk to use magic and skills. This guy can deal out
around 80-120 damage per attack. When this happens, issue the "First Aid"
command and allow Elk to use La Repth to heal your party. Use wood skills
like "Gale of Swords" and various wood based spells which will deal loads
of damage. Eventualy, after you data drain him, you can data drain him a
second time! Use this to your advantage to save health drinks and time.
_______________________________________________________________________________

---------------------
3.5)- Killer Snaker
---------------------

_______________________________________________________________________________
Name: Killer Snaker 
Level: 16
Hp: 1330
Pp: 485
Element: Earth
Weakness: Wood
Attacks: MeGan Rom, Physical Attacks
Difficulty: 1/10

Strategy: This guy can be easy or hard, whichever you choose. If you have 
Hell's Gate for Kite, you can unleash "Gale of Swords" which can get this boss 
seriously hurt. Use a Mage's Soul to constantly deal major damage to this boss.
Also, use La Repth with Elk to heal any lost Hp.
_______________________________________________________________________________

---------------------
3.6)- Thousand Trees
---------------------

_______________________________________________________________________________
Name: Thousand Trees
Level: 18
Hp: 1090
Pp: 2750
Element: Wood
Weakness: Earth
Attacks: RaJuk Rom
Difficulty: 6/10

Strategy: You should probably level up before taking this guy on. I am a level
up freak, so I was level 26. He's easy if you have good skills like "Twirling
Dark" and other level 2 tech skills. This guy is slow and he doesn't hurt all
that much. Bring a party of Kite, Black Rose, and Gardenia and you should be
fine. Issue the "Skills" command and allow them two to do their part while you
hack away with "Twirling Dark" and your other skills. Use Ol Repth (if you have
it) to recover 400hp to any one who is hurt. If you do not have Ol repth, use
Rip Maen on any character who fall dead to this boss. You can get Rip Maen
from the "Scarab Earring". To get the scarab earing, use the Springs of mist
to upgrade your head armor.

---------------------
3.7)-Skeith (Part 1)
---------------------

-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_
3.71)- Preparations
-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_

-Bring a party of Kite, Black Rose, and Gardenia

-Equip Kite with the Scarab Earring. This allows him to cast great healing 
spells.

-Get around 10 restoratives and 10 antidotes

-Be at least level 32

-Get the ceramic helm from the Gott statue at Passionate, Dog-Dancing, Tri 
Pansy and equip it to Black Rose before the battle. This will allow her to 
cast rig saem and rig gaem before the battle. If one of you characters dies, 
do not bother recasting both these spells.

-Get at least 20 pure waters. These reduce the damage taken by "Judgement" 
attack.

-For a more speedy alternative to the scarrab earring, bring plenty of 
ressurects
and health potions.

-Pray to god that you do not die on your first
_______________________________________________________________________________
Name: The Terror of Death: Skeith
Level: 99
Hp: Unknown
Pp: Unknown
Element: None
Weakness: None
Attacks: Data Drain, Judgement, Cross Stab, Cross Swing
Difficulty: 9/10

Strategy: This guy is reall a pain in the butt. all of his attacks do well over
300hp of damage except his Data Drain attack which puts every status effect on
one of your characters! Use restorative and antidotes to counter this attack. 
His Cross stab is an attack where he stabs his cross in the ground dealing 
400hp worth of damage to anyone it hits! His sword swing only deals around 300
damage to a single character. His final attack, Judgement, does about 400-500
damage to your whole party, regardless of where they are! Use a pure water
at the beggining of this battle to cut the damage done by judgement in half. 
Issue the "Skills" command and and stay back as far as you can. Watch as your
party members slowly whittle at Skeith's hp. They will constantly die, there 
is no way to counter this except the Rip Maen spell or a ressurect. You must 
be 
patient and don't try to go in and attack Skeith because he will use his cross 
stab skill which will obliterate you and your party. All you have to do is stay
back and use Rip Maen and ressurects. Don't bother try to actually heal Black 
Rose and Gardenia as Skeith deals out more damage than you can heal. Use any 
Health Potions you have on yourself. Every time he casts Judgement, you should 
use health potions. Keep this up until you can final data drain Skeith.
_______________________________________________________________________________
---------------------
3.8)- Skeith (Part 2)
---------------------
_______________________________________________________________________________
Name: Data Drained Skeith
Level: 1
Hp: 4000
Pp: N/A
Element: None
Weakness: None
Attacks: Judgement, Sword Stab
Difficulty: 10/10

Strategy: Use the same strategy as posted before. Just because he lost two of 
his attacks does not mean he is easier. In fact, he is much harder than before.
He uses his attacks 2 times as much, which means he will be casting Judgement 
every 15  seconds! He also moves around faster. Just use the same strategy and
stay back from him! You don't want to die once you get this far into the battle

4.0) Parasite Dragon

###############################################################################

------------------
4.1)- Preparations
------------------

-Be at least level 34 before taking this monster on.

-Have everyone's ultimate weapons.

-Bring a party of Black Rose and Gardenia with Kite.

-Have around 20 health potions, 25 ressurects, and around 15 mage's souls.

-Bring Rip Maen spell.

-Bring at least 15 Restoratives
_______________________________________________________________________________
Name: Parasite Dragon
Level: 30
Hp: 9999
Pp: 8888
Element: None
Weakness: None
Attacks: Breath, Confusion, Claw Swipe
Difficulty: 9/10

Strategy: Start off by sending Gardenia and Black Rose to attack the dragon.
They should deal around 100-150 damage per hit. Stay back away from the dragon
because it's fire breath attack will kill anyone who is in front of it. Once
it kills gardenia and black rose, use a single ressurect and cast rip maen
skill once to save PP and ressurects. The dragon will confuse gardenia or black
rose. You should immediately use a restorative to counter this. All you should
be doing is reviving your 2 other party members. If by some chance kite gets
hit, immediately use a health potion to restore kite's HP. Use a mage sould 
when Kite runs out of HP. Do not use magic in this battle. The parasite dragon
is magic resistant and cannot be hurt by magic! When it says that you can data 
drain the dragon, do so because it is the only way to get the rare twin blade 
swords called Hyakkidouran.
