    =============================================================================
    =============================================================================
    
    Hello! I am Damir Kolar and I welcome you to my thirteenth FFX-2 related
    project. For this guide I've chosen to cover Bikanel Digging. In the horde of
    FAQs already up for FFX-2 none has digging stuff covered. So let's cover that
    hole, shall we?
    
    There's more to digging that simple collecting stuff, assemblies, coins etc.
    Digging is important for mascot (Djose EPCOM, in particular), to expand your
    Sphere Break coin collection and some other things. And, there are people
    that want to get max payrise, but perhaps fail to do work ethics test.
    
    I will include all of that and more information in the guide you're reading.
    Hopefully all of you questions regarding digging will be answered. Without
    further Cactuar needles, welcome to my Bikanel Digging guide.

    =============================================================================
    05.)                       READ THIS FIRST! - G0500
    =============================================================================
    =============================================================================
    
    That's right, you should read this first. In this section I'll tell you some
    of the most basic information you should know when attempting digging.
    
    # CASE 1
    To even be able to dig, first you need LETTER OF INTRODUCTION KEY ITEM you
    receive from Gippal in Djose Temple. You can get this letter either in CH1 or
    in CH2. When you get to Djose, a scene introducing Gippal will unfold. Now
    stand at the end of the line of people near the structure on the right and
    wait patiently. Once grey-robed man goes inside, follow suit. Inside talk to
    the guy behind the counter - access to Djose temple is granted. Inside view
    the scene, then go outside the temple and go north. When asked a question,
    reply [We're sure.] and letter is yours.
    
    # CASE 2 - CH1
    If you're still in CH1, Bikanel becomes a hotspot now, so go there. Once you
    make it to the camp, trigger a scene in upper-right corner by talking to the
    guy you find here. After that find two male Al Bheds that are 'talking' to
    each other, talk to them both and then address them again. You'll see another
    scene, where Nhadala will come flying on some machine. She's now pacing back
    and forth on right of the screen. Talk to her and choose [I've got this
    letter...] to start the mission. For details what you must do look into
    section 6.
    
    # CASE 3 - CH2
    If you neglected to go to Bikanel in CH2, you will have to go in this CH cos
    of certain storyline mission. You will find Nhadala in upper right corner
    straight away. Talk to her and choose [I've got this letter...]. When she
    briefs you on situation, try to go away from her - she'll stop you and ask
    you to go investigate the Oasis. Now talk to hover pilot to start the
    mission, which is fairly simple - just go forward, pick up a sphere, and
    defeat the boss.

    =============================================================================
    06.)                        CAN YOU DIG IT? - G0600
    =============================================================================
    =============================================================================
    
    Use this section as a quick reference to what you can do in single session of
    digging.
    
    RULE 01: A digging session lasts 60 seconds. Not a second longer, not a
             second shorter.
    
    RULE 02: Your objective is to seek out yellow cross on the minimap and to get
             the treasure buried at this spot before your opposition claims it.
             Note that sometimes Yuna's the only digger in the area (more details
             below). Treasure beneath yellow cross will be one of three possible
             assemblies or Scrap Metal. More info on assemblies in section 10.
             All that you have to do to dig out the treasure is stand on top of
             the cross and Yuna will dig automatically.
    
    RULE 03: Beside yellow cross, there are four additional white crosses
             scattered across the map. The treasure buried here is optional, but
             should be hunted for nevertheless. Treasure beneath white cross will
             be either: item, gil, Sphere Break coin, accessory, or a key item.
             Sometimes you get to fight fiends. All that you have to do to dig
             out the treasure is stand on top of the cross and Yuna will dig
             automatically.
    
    RULE 04: Sometimes a differently colored cross might appear. For more details
             refer to section 7.
    
    RULE 05: Once you excavate yellow cross treasure, make your way back to the
             hover before time limit expires! If you're too late, Yuna falls on
             the ground exhausted. Game Over... or is it? Kidding. Anyway, should
             time limit expire, you *lose* the yellow cross treasure, but you get
             to keep any white cross treasures you dug out.
    
    RULE 06: Besides possible Al Bhed opposition, you're almost never alone when
             digging. There's fiends to be fought here as well. Unless you wear
             Charm Bangle, there are going to be random battles when you run for
             the crosses. But even with Charm Bangle you're not completely safe -
             rarely a white cross might initiate a battle against fiends. And
             there's still more - sometimes when dig starts, screen will flash
             red after 5 secs have passed and Picket will go blaring about
             unidentified object approaching.
             Unless you're in CH5 and have already got EPCOM for Bikanel, you're
             about to face off against Angra Mainyu, rather powerful fiend that
             resides in the desert. If fought in CH1, Angra does nothing - in CH2
             one of its arms becomes active, and in CH3 you have to deal with
             whole trio. Angra will be shown as red arrow on the minimap closing
             in on your position about 10 seconds before time limit expires.
             Fight can end in three ways: either you escape; hold your ground for
             60 seconds, at which point Angra will eject your party; or kill it
             alltogether (possible only with supreme accessories like Cat Nip and
             Iron Duke). In latter case Angra will simply respawn.
             Finally, Angra can only be permanently killed in CH5. After that
             point, if Picket blares about objects approaching, expect to square
             off against some simple enemies (Fly Eye + Killer Hound, Pop Fry or
             Zu).
    
    RULE 07: Once you return from digging session (successful or not), results
             will be displayed. Total Digs, followed by successful digs, then
             failed digs - and at the bottom your digging rank will be displayed.
    
    RULE 08: Digging Rank can be:
             - Sandbox League (starting rank)
             - Beach Comber (if flawless, after 15 successful digs)
             - Sand Blaster (if flawless, after 30 successful digs)
             - Zen Master of Digging (if flawless, after 60 successful digs)
    
    RULE 09: After certain amount of digs your success up to this point will be
             evaluated. If amount of successful digs is superior to amount of
             failed digs, your Digging Rank is raised by one level. The numbers of
             digs will be assessed after 15, 30, 60, 120, 150 and 180 digs. If you
             have more successful digs than failed digs, your rank will be
             increased by one level (unless you're already the top rank). If after
             180 digs, you still have not reached the top rank, you will be unable
             to do so.

    =============================================================================
    =============================================================================
    
    In this section you will be able to find an overview of all the possible
    areas you can dig at.
    
    DIG AREA  | CHAPTERS | WHEN AVAILABLE?                | ALONE? | FIENDS?
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    WESTERN   | 1-2-3-5  | After 'Can you dig it?'        | Nope   | Yep

    EXPANSE   |          | the choc-ranch to Bikanel      |        |
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    *   - If you handed O'aka over to Al Bhed as a result of O'aka hunting
          mission in MacWoods, go dig here during CH2 or CH3, but BEFORE you do
          'Protect the Agency' subquest in MacWoods in CH3. Sometimes a green
          cross will appear, so go there and examine it. Why, it's O'aka! After
          the scene allow him to come onboard Celsius.
    
    **  - Sometimes you'll come across green cross in this area. When examined,
          YRP are forced into series of battles against machine fiends. Piece of
          cake.
    
    *** - When you go here for the very first time, you'll have to win a battle
          against Zu.

    =============================================================================
    =============================================================================
    
    I'll list the name of the area. First line that appears below is called
    'Assembly frequency'. For example: take a look at Western Expanse. You'll see
    that Attack Ass. is listed first. This means that you have fairly good
    chances you'll run into Attack Ass. when you dig at yellow cross. Defense
    Ass. has second highest chances, with Special being dead last.
    
    This will be followed by item checklists. I'll separate coins in their own
    entry, so that you won't get confused. With this, let us go underway.

    09.)                      DIGGING PAYRISE FAQ - G0900
    =============================================================================
    =============================================================================
    
    Inside Djose temple, right entrance to 'Living quarters', there's a machine
    you can examine and apply for greater wages. Wage is amount of gil you
    receive after each successful dig. Once you apply for payrise, you must
    answer six questions, which are randomly chosen from an assortment of 60
    questions pertaining to work ethics. If your answers prove you're thinking
    well (ie you gained enough points from the 'pop-quiz'), your pay will be
    raised (amount of successful digs you've taken x 5 = payrise). But if you
    fail, then all future applications will be denied. You can only apply again
    after making three further successful digs.
    
    Each CH of the game (except CH4, where you can't do any digging) starts your
    wages at lowest minimum. By successfully answering work ethics questions, you
    can keep increasing your pay up to a certain maximum, which again depends on
    what CH you're in. Refer to the chart below to see all those details.
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    CH | STARTING | MAXIMUM | POINTS NEEDED
       | SALARY   | SALARY  | TO PASS
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1  | 100      | 150     | 5+
    2  | 150      | 300     | 7+
    3  | 200      | 400     | 8+
    5  | 300      | 850     | 11+
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Still, all this info won't do any good, if you don't know the best answers to
    give to each of sixty questions. Below chart takes care of that for you.
    Muchas gracias to everyone who sent in information about point distribution.

    EXTRA STUFFING 1
    
    So, just what exactly are all those assemblies for? Here's the answer:
    
    In CH5, when you visit Djose temple, you'll be asked to take on Al Bhed's
    mighiest machina they've ever created. Yeah right. Anyway, choose whatever.
    What you must aim for is bringing Experiment's Attack, Defense and Special
    levels to 5. You do that by going to Bikanel and digging at yellow crosses.
    Each assembly you dig out is automatically inserted into Experiment. Use two
    charts below to help you configure just how far you must go.
    
    CHART 1                               | CHART 2
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ASSEMBLY TYPE Z is worth 5 PTS        | 0 - 3 PTS warrant Lv1
    ASSEMBLY TYPE S is worth 3 PTS        | 4 - 9 PTS warrant Lv2
    ASSEMBLY TYPE A is worth 1 PTS        | 10 - 19 PTS warrant Lv3
                                          | 20 - 37 PTS warrant Lv4
                                          | 38+ PTS warrant Lv5
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    If you wonder how many of each assembly type you've found so far, go examine
    the monitor in right 'Living quarters' inside Djose temple and pick the
    option which allows you to view assemblies collected.
    
    EXTRA STUFFING 2
    
    And what about Desert Key you've dug out in Central Expanse?
    
    You know the chubby guy walking around locked chest in the Al Bhed Camp? Now
    that you have the key, you can unlock the chest and obtain Horn of Plenty GG.
