Walkthrough



"Once upon a time, there existed a giant tree that was the source of all mana.

                    A war, however, caused this tree to wither away,
             and a hero's life was sacrificed in order to take its place.
     Grieving over the loss, the goddess disappeared unto the heavens.
                       The goddess left the angels with the edict:

  'You must wake me, for it I should sleep, the world shall be destroyed.'

                             The angels bore the Chosen One,
       who headed towards the tower that reached up unto the heavens.
      And that marked the beginning of the regeneration of the world."

 Iselia - The Village of Oracles
---------------------------------


       You'll start off in the classroom. The teacher, Raine (who is also
Genis' sister), asks the students some questions about the prophecy so that
you learn a bit about the main storyline. Meanwhile, a light will strike
through the classroom, so Raine leaves for the chapel to see what's
happening. Colette, who is the Chosen One, will want to come along, but
Raine tells everyone to stay in the classroom.

       You now take control of Lloyd. Obviously, you're not going to stay
in the classroom calmly waiting, so try to leave the classroom, but Genis
will stop you. He will ask you to stay in the classroom like his sister said,
and you can choose to go or to stay. Depending on your answer, some events
will be different. If you choose the first answer, Genis and Colette will
join you, then you'll head for the temple and the priest will die there. If
you choose the second answer instead, the priest will come to take Colette to
the temple, but will die right in the classroom. Whatever answer you choose,
it doesn't change anything else than this, and you'll all go to the temple
anyway.

       Before leaving the school though, once Genis and Colette has joined
your party, examine the hole in the wall at the left of the chalkboard so that
Colette will obtain the title of Klutz.

       When you're done, leave the school to find the village empty. Frank
will tell you that the Desians invaded the village and the villagers are
hiding from them. You now have to go to the Martel Temple so head north.
You'll encounter a monster, which you have to battle as a practice. Simply
press A to hit the enemy with Lloyd's sword. There'll then be another monster
to battle. This time, press R to select the zombie and leave the ghost to
Genis.

       Before going on, save your game at the save point (Memory Circle)
just next to the school. Now you can leave town to the field.

       After the cutscene (which depends on your answer to Genis' question
at the beginning of the game), head upstairs to the Temple. The Desians are
looking for Colette. You'll then have to fight two Desians soldiers and after
this, a tough one.

Hopefully, Kratos will come to your help, making the fight easier. Then,
Colette will go into the Temple with Kratos as her protector. She will insist
that you come with her. Kratos will give you the Training Book.

        Inside the temple, 3 paths are offered to you. The left one leads
to a dead-end, and the one in front of you leads to a sealed door, which you
need the Sorcerer's Ring in order to open, so head for the right path.

        At the end of the path, go downstairs to a room with a transparent
floor with holes. This is where the Sorcerer's Ring is, but we can't get it
now. You will enter a battle with a Golem, and after defeating it, it will
turn into a rock. Colette will accidentally push that rock in a hole, but
that's ok, since that's what we need to do anyway.

        Now what you need to do in that room is fight the Golem and use
the rocks to make them fall in the gaps below so you will be able to cross
these gaps. Here's what the floor looks like:
            _______________
           |  _    _    _  |
           | |_|  |1|  |_| |
           |  _    _    _  |
           | |2|  |_|  |3| |
           |  _    _    _  |
           | |_|  |_|  |_| |
           |_______________|
        You'll need to throw two rocks into hole #1. The first rock will
fall into the gap, while the second rock will fall on top of the first rock.
You'll need to go down using the stairs, and push the second rock into the
other gap. That way you can cross and get the Sorcerer's Ring.

        There is already a rock in hole #2 (the one Colette pushed), so
you'll need to push another one through that hole. Then, go down and push the
rock (which should be on top of the one that was already there) into the
other gap at the left. Cross and open the chest for a Life Bottle.

        Two more rocks should go into in hole #3, then go down and push the
one atop the other one at the right into the gap, and then cross to get the
chest containing Panacea Bottle.

        When this is all done and you have the Sorcerer's Ring, go back up
to the transparent floor and go upstairs using the stairs at the left. There
you will find 3 chests containing Apple Gel, Life Bottle and 250 Gald.

        Now go back to the entrance of the temple, to the sealed door.
Press X in front of it to use the Sorcerer's Ring. The door will open. Go in
the Warp to access the top part of the temple. Colette will meet with her
real father, who is an angel. He tells her they will meet at the next seal.

        After this cutscene, talk to all three party members. They will
each leave, so get in the warp to leave yourself. You will meet Raine as you
leave the temple, and since you're not supposed to be here, she is pretty
mad. Now leave the temple and return to Iselia.

Items: Grapes


        All the villagers are back and the town is running again. Start by
going in the school and talk to Rain. Genis will obtain the title Brotherly
Love.

        Now go to the south part of the village (any of the two paths that
lead south) and find the Shop. If you go around the shop you will find a
passage behind that leads to the vineyard. Talk to the person with the beige
hat and he will give you some grapes.

        Now, head for the east part of the town. Enter the house at the
northeast, which is Colette's. After the discussion about Colette leaving
for the tower to fulfill her role of the Chosen One to regenerate the world,
you will receive the Collector's Book.

       Then, Genis wants you to come with him to his house. You can learn
about cooking and will get some sandwich ingredients. After that, head for
the gate south of town. The guards will tell you that your dog Noishe was
trying to enter the village, and ask you if he's the one who wandered around
the Human Ranch. Obviously no, so don't mind them and leave the village.

       Noishe will leave you here. Head right and go up the two first slopes,
then go left and go down the slope there for a chest containing Apple Gel. Go
back up and go right for another chest with a Life Bottle in. Then go up the
slope at the left and Genis will tell you he has to go now. Save your game at
the save point and head left to the Human Ranch.

       Go left to meet with Marble. Apparently, she has an Exsphere, but no
Key Crest, which Lloyd tells she needs in order to be safe. Guards will then
come so flee. You now need to find a higher place that will let you look into
the ranch what's going on.

       At the right of the entrance is a cliff. Examine it to find a ledge
into the side of the cliff. You will then be able to jump, so jump to that
ledge, then to the other one and to the one at the right to find a chest that
contains Orange Gel. Jump to the ledge at the left and a cutscene will occur
where Lloyd and Genis make up a plan to save Marble.

       Genis will attack the soldiers, then you'll have to fight two of them.
After that fight, Genis will return to the village while Lloyd needs to go
home. So, save your game at the save point and head north.

       Continue north, then go left for a chest containing Apple Gel. Then
go all the way right for another chest with Leather Glove, which Lloyd can
equip. Go back down, and go right for a chest with Apple Gel, then cross the
bridge below and you'll find another chest with 500 Gald. Continue north and
go up the path to a clearing. Here, go right on the grass mound and left on
the tree branch. Open the bag on the branch for Orange Gel. Now leave the
forest.

 Dirk's House
--------------


       Go in the house, where your father awaits you. Lloyd will them him he
needs a Key Crest for a traveling merchant, but his father tells him this is
a lie (which is true indeed) so Lloyd has no choice but to tell him he did go
to the Human Ranch. Lloyd's father is mad and tells Lloyd his mother was
killed by the Desians, so Lloyd is mad too, and leaves the house. Outside he
runs into Colette, Genis, Kratos and Rain. Colette wishes to talk with you,
so accept. She will tell you she needs to leave on a quest with Raine and
Kratos to go to the tower. Obviously, Lloyd wants to accompany them, since
he wants to avenge his mother's death. Colette tells him they will leave at
noon, so if he wants to come, he'll have to be at Iselia tomorrow.

       In the morning, Lollyd wakes up. Leave the house and go at your
mother's grave to find your father. He will give you some items for your
journey, along with the Sylvarant Map and the Key Crest you asked for.
But, Genis arrives and tells you Colette has already left. She lied to Lloyd
because she didn't want him to come along, since she thought it was too
dangerous and she didn't want him to get hurt. Now you'll be at Iselia.

(third visit)


       Go to Colette's house. She has left you a letter about the reasons of
her departure without you. While talking with Colette's family, you hear a
noise outside, so hurry out to find out the village is on fire. Go west and
fight the soldiers in front of the school. The man will give you Orange Gel
to thank you for saving him. Then, head south. The Desians are after Lloyd,
so they burnt the whole village. You will then fight a mini boss.

After this, the monster will save you from the Desians. It appears this monster
 is in fact Marble. I assume this is the consequence of an Exsphere with no
Key Crest. The Desians will then leave and the Mayor will banish you from the
village along with Genis.

       Leave the village through the south gate where Noishe is waiting for
you. You'll obtain the title of Drifting Swordsman.

Near the village is now Nova's Caravan, where you can rest and save. Back on
the field, head south. On the way, Noishe will pick up a letter you drop. It
is a letter from your father, telling you about Ex Skills. Then, continue
until you reach the House of Salvation. A guy here will tell you about
Guidepost Monuments and Long-range mode. You can also rest in the inn for
100G and save at the save point on the second floor. When you're done, head
back to the field and look for a chest containing Ex Gem Lv 1 northwest of
the House of Salvation. As you approach the forest part near the cliffs, it
will become visible. Then, head for the desert and enter the next town,
Triet.



___________________________________________

 Triet - The Desert Oasis
--------------------------
(first visit)


       Desians have been putting wanted posters all around town, but we're
still going to explore it. First, head for the inn. You can save your game
here, then go upstairs to the second floor and look at the end of the hallway
to find the Wonder Chef, who teaches you how to make Cabbage Rolls. He will
also give you Cabbage and Pork for the recipe. Also, examine the wanted
poster on the inn's wall.

       Now, leave the inn and head for the market place. You can buy several
things, and one of the merchants asks you for a Beast Hide, which we'll get
later. I suggest buying the new weapon available here for Lloyd and selling
his old wood sword.

       Then, head north of the town all the way to the fortune-teller. Lloyd
will ask her where Colette is heading for, but the fortune-teller asks 100G
for the answer. If you want to continue on, you have no other choice but to
pay. Once she gives you the answer, go back to the entrance of the town and
try to leave. You'll get attacked by three Desians. Defeat them, but then
Lloyd will be captured, while Genis escapes.

            Magical Cloth
            1500 Gald


       You'll wake up in a prison cell with nothing but the Sorcerer's Ring.
Try to hit the guard using the Ring (press X) when he passes in front of
where you are standing. It isn't as easy a it sounds, you're going to need
a well timed shot. When you hit him, he will run away and the cell will open.

       Leave the cell and examine the one on your left to open it. Inside
is a chest containing Beast Hide. Open the other cell for a save point. Then,
head right and open the chest in the room there to get back your equipment.
Continue right and you'll fight 2 guards.

       After the fight, enter the next room. When the guards leave, check
the blue sphere to change the attribute of the Sorcerer's Ring to
electricity. Now what you must do in this room is stun the enemies using the
electric beam of the Sorcerer's Ring while they are standing on the blue pads
on the floor. Each side of the room has one of those blue pads. When an enemy
passes over one of them, shot it to stun it while it's on the pad. Then,
repeat the process with the second enemy on the other pad. When both pads
have a stunned enemy on, the door at the left will open.

       Go through the door and head left into the hallway. Then go down and
fight the soldier there to receive a Memory Gem. Head down after this to a
room with a chest containing Beast Fang. You can also buy some items using
the distributor. Head back up and go left, upstairs to a new puzzle room.

       Here, you can use the Memory Gem on the Memory Circle to restore the
save point. Now, there's a gamecube statue in the center of the room with 3
colored buttons around it. At the left of the room are 3 pillars also. By
hitting the pillars with the Sorcerer's Ring, the buttons around the gamecube
will rotate depending on the pillar you hit. If you place the purple button
towards the purple one by the gamecube, the door south of the room will open.
Inside the room is a chest containing Magical Cloth.

       Then, go back and place the green button towards the other green
button to open the door at the north of the room. Go through and Lloyd will
encounter some guards. Hopefully, he escapes in a room, but a mysterious guy
is in there and furthermore, Botta will come in too. Colette and the rest of
the group will then come to your rescue. Now, the party will fight Botta.

 Triet - The Desert Oasis
--------------------------
(second visit)


       You will all head for the inn. After a group discussion, Lloyd decides
to repair Raine's Exsphere. Leave your room and head upstairs. You can go
into Colette's room for a cutscene, then enter Raine's room and give her the
Exsphere. She tells you that you can accompany them on their quest as you
wished. That's great news. Head back downstairs and save your game. After
saving, head outside. The group decides they need to go to the ruins. Before
leaving town though, go to the market and talk to the merchant who wanted
some Beast Hide. In exchange for it, he will give you a Soft Leather and
will make new armors from your old ones. Then, you can leave town and walk
southwest to The Triet Ruins.

            Savory
            Spirit Bottle
            1000 Gald


       As you enter the ruins, you'll get attacked by 2 enemies. Take them
down, then Kratos will teach you self-defense techniques. Now head for the
ruin. Raine will obtain the title of Archeological Maniac. Colette will then
place her hand on the stone tablet, and the boulder blocking the entrance to
the ruins will move away. Head inside.

       There are 3 doors you can enter from here, so it may seem a bit
confusing, but it's not. From the entrance of the dungeon, head west to a
door in the wall, but don't enter it yet. Head south and at the end of the
hallway, you'll notice a chest covered with rocks. Shoot a beam from the
Sorcerer's Ring to blow off the rocks, then open the chest for a Lemon Gel.

       Now enter the door here. You'll be in a room full of lava. Go to the
left and defeat the enemy here for a Memory Gem. Now go up the nearby stairs
and the party will notice a torch in the wall. Light it up using the
Sorcerer's Ring. This will make a platform raise. Now, go down the stairs and
go right. Light the torch here too to make other platforms raise.

       Leave this place since there's nothing more to do, and go back up the
hallway. Enter the door that's west of the dungeon's entrance. You're in
another part of the lava room. If you head up, you'll find two chests behind
the wall containing Bracelet and Life Bottle. If you head down, there's
another chest with Apple Gel. Now, move the big block and push it into the
hole at the left. Also push the other block into that hole. You can now cross
to the other side, where a torch is. Light it up to raise platforms, then go
up the slope at the left. Thanks to the platforms you raised earlier, you can
now access 3 chests. One contains Savory, and the two others contain Mumei
and 1000 Gald.

       You got all there was to get in that room, so leave it and back in the
main hallway, head north. There is a chest at the end of the hallway, but do
not open it as there is a pretty tough enemy inside and you'll just end up
dying fighting it. Enter the door at the left of the chest and head west all
the way to a big block. Push it right, then down, and into the hole. You can
now get the chest containing Stiletto. Also light the torch on the wall at
the left of the chest to make some platforms raise. Go back to where the
platforms just raised up, and go up the stairs there. Left of the save point
is a chest with Circlet. Then, use the Memory Gem on the Memory Circle, and
save your game. Make sure to choose the right 4 party members and to equip
all the new weapons and armor you got in this dungeon. When you're ready,
enter the Warp.

This boss is pretty hard. If you have Genis in your party, make him use his
water spell. Raine and Kratos will heal the party, and Lloyd will attack the
enemies. Take down the 2 small enemies first, then take care of the big one.
Don't be afraid of using your Apple Gels if necessary, and keep the Orange
Gels to replenish Kratos and Raine's TP when they are low. Always keep an
eye on HP.

       When the fight is over, Ramiel will appear and give Colette angel
wings. She will also learn a new powerful technique. Now, your group must
head to the east and cross the sea, so you'll need to find a ship to bring
you there. Go back in the warp and leave the dungeon. Colette is not feeling
well, so the party will set up a campfire for the night. Talk to Colette
twice and she'll say she wants to go and take a walk. You'll then be back in
the field.

       A voice will stop you as you enter the mountains. The woman wants to

to her clumsiness. Nevermind, head up the mountain.

       Climb up, and when you arrive at a fork, go left for a chest containing
Battle Staff, a weapon for Raine. Continue the climbing and once at the top of
the mountain, open the two chests containing Apple Gel and Melange Gel, then
save your game and head east. There'll be a chest on your way with Orange Gel.
At the bottom of the mountain, you'll encounter that woman again. She still
wants to kill you, apparently.

This boss can be hard, but if you gave the right orders to your party members,
it should go fine. I suggest having Lloyd, Genis, Raine and Kratos. Like
always, Raine and Kratos heal while attacking, Lloyd attacks and Colette can
also attack with her new Angel Wings technique, and can also be the one using
the items. Raine can also be a good attacker this time if you equipped her new
Battle Staff. Keep an eye on TP and HP, and don't be afraid of using items.

       When she is defeated, heal the party and enter the mines via the hole
in the mountainside. Go east at the first intersection, and then south for
a chest containing Black Silver. Return to the intersection and head north.
At the second intersection, go west and get the chest in the alcove. It
contains Fine Guard. Then head north from the second intersection to enter a
room with two chests a skull. Open the chests for Beast Fang and Ex Gem Lv 1.
Don't try to fight the skull, you can't defeat it yet. You will have to come
back later for him, when you are stronger. If you do manage to defeat it,
though, you will get Yata Mirror.

       Leave the mines and go out on the field. You're now on the other side
of the mountain. Head for the nearby village, Izoold. You can also find the
Guide Monument for Izoold if you go north from the village.

       Sleep at the inn and save your game. Now, enter the house at the right
of the Katz's stand and look in the top-right corner to find the Wonder Chef.
He will tell you how to make Rice Balls.

       Now, head for the port at the east of the village. Head for the docks
and talk to Max, who owns a boat. He won't let you on though. Return to the
village and enter the second house. Talk to the lady near the window, Lyla.
Then talk to the man with the beard in front of the inn and go back to see
Lyla. She will leave and head for the docks, so head there too. You'll find
her talking to Max. She wants you to deliver a letter to Aifread in Luin.
Max will have no other choice but to let you cross the sea with him. Set
sail when you're ready. Note that you won't be coming back here before a
while, so prepare accordingly.



___________________________________________

 Palmacosta - The Port City
----------------------------
(first visit)


      After crossing the sea, you'll arrive in a big town, Palmacosta. Buy new
weapons at the market, then head south of the port. On the way, Colette will
hit a lady, resulting in her Palma potion falling on the ground. Colette
insists that she'll buy another one to replace it.

      Head east and enter the second shop. Some Desians are causing trouble
inside. The Palma Potion is selling here for a price of 1000 Gald, but there's
a cheaper way to get one. Leave the shop and continue to the east part of the
town. There'll be a small cutscene, then enter the governor building on your
left. It appears General Dorr gave the Book of Regeneration to imposters that
came before them. Oh well. Head for the church and talk with the pastor. Also
talk to Chocolat at the church's entrance.

      Now, leave the church and enter the building at the right of the church.
Examine the weird ball holder at the right of the staircase to find the Wonder
Chef. He will show you how to make Omelets and will give you some Rice and Egg.
Then, go in the doorway at the right. If you enter the second door in this
hall, you can play a mini-game where Colette must be a waitress. If you do fine
during the mini-game, you will get money and Colette will receive the title of
Turbo Waitress along with a free Palma Potion.

      Now head to the second floor. Enter the first room of the corridor to
study. Then, enter the second room to start the contest. Genis and Mighty
will end up with the same result. Genis will then obtain the title of Honor
Roll.

      Nothing more to do here, so leave and return to the west part of the
town and hand over the Palma potion you got or bought to the lady. You will
then find out that they are the imposters, so you'll need to follow them.
Head west to leave the town.

Follow the path to the east, and where the path splits in two, go left and
cross the bridge. Continue to follow the path to the House of Salvation. Head
inside and you'll see that woman who attacked you earlier. You now know that
her name is Sheena. Leave that place and continue in the field. If you go
northeast, you'll find the Guide Monument at the end of long part of land.
Then, head north to the mountains until you arrive at Hakonesia Peak. Before
going in though, head east and follow the mountainside until you find a chest
with Magic Mist.

       Enter the house on the right. Koton wants you to bring him the Spiritua

from the imposters. You can't get the statue now anyway, so head back to
Palmacosta.

 Palmacosta - The Port City

(second visit)


       Head for the east part of town. The Desians are about to hang Cacao.
Lloyd and the group decide to save her, so you enter a fight with Whip Master
and Evil Sorcerer. The fight is really easy and shouldn't take more than 10
seconds. After all this, head for the west part of town. Talk to the person
standing next to the entrance of Palmacosta and he'll ask you to escort him
to Hakonesia Peak. Once there, you'll be asked to save Chocolat, who has
been kidnapped by Desians and brought to the Human Ranch. So, head southeast
from the House of Salvation to find Palmacosta Ranch behind a mountain.

 Palmacosta Ranch

       Neil will tell you that Dorr has lead you into a trap. Choose to head
back to Palmacosta since there's nothing you can do here for now. You can
also find the Guide Monument for this part of the map south of the Ranch
between some mountains.

       Sleep at the inn, then go to the Governor's building. It is empty, but

to find Dorr and some Desians. It appears they turned his wife into a monster
like Marble. His daughter then reveal she's an imposter, and you'll need to
fight her.

Make sure you went to the inn before the fight, you're going to need all of
your HP and TP for this fight. Colette's Angel Wings attack will deal the
most damage, so stick with this technique and use Orange Gels to replenish
her TP when it's low. Raine and Kratos should be part of the team as healers.
Also use Apple Gels when necessary and try to avoid Kilia's major attacks.
It's a pretty long fight, but eventually, you'll defeat her.

       After the fight, Dorr will give you a Card Key for the Human Ranch.
He also gives you the password to enter: 3341. So head back for the Ranch
to save Chocolat.

       Talk to Neil at the entrance of the ranch. Then, go up the left path
and enter the password Dorr gave you (3341). The ranch's door will open so
go in. Inside, go left and then go in the northeast room and fight the enemy
here for a Memory Gem. Then, go up the stairs at the right.

       In the room here, examine the white sphere to change the Sorcerer's
Ring's function. It now acts as a radar and lets you see hidden things. Go
back downstairs to the previous room and use the radar. You'll see some
sparks that are in fact items. Look near the corridor at the left and in the
corridor for two sparks and also another one right of the entrance. You'll
get an Apple Gel, two Orange Gels and a Life Bottle out of this place. Then,
head back upstairs.

        Use the radar again and the warp will become usable. Use it to reach
a room with a save point. Enter the door at the left of the save point and
one of the captives will give you the Blue Card. Now go back and enter the
door at the right of the save point.

        In this room, if you use the radar, some blocks will become visible.
Pull out the block in the top right corner to get an item, Mage Cloak. Then,
push the block at the bottom right corner in the hole so you can pick up
another item, Ex Gem Lv 2. Now, head right and with the radar on, examine the
blue pillar and a bridge will appear. Cross it and go downstairs. Colette
will find the Red Card.

       Go back across the bridge and push a second block into the other hole
in the bottom right corner of the platform where you pushed the previous
block to get the item. You can now cross to the other side. On this side,
use the radar to find 2 items, Omega Shield and White Silver. Then, go to
the blue pillar at the right and with the radar on, examine it to get
another bridge.

       Cross this bridge and fight the enemy here to get the Purple Card.
Then, examine the other blue pillar and another bridge will appear. Cross it
and put the radar on to find another item, Life Bottle. Now, deactivate all
the bridges before continuing, or you'll miss an item. After deactivating
all the bridges, a new spiral bridge will appear in the center of the room.
You'll need it later.

       Return to the room with the save point and use the Cards you got on
the warp to activate it. Go in and you'll appear in a room with 4 paths and a
warp in the center. Use your radar to find the yellow warps, and don't enter
the red ones. Do this until you find the green warp which will take you to
the room with the spiral bridge. Go up and use the radar to get Panacea
Bottle. Then, go back to the room with the warps. Go back until you find the
red warp and go in. Continue to go in the yellow warps then until you are in
a room with 2 red warps. If you choose to go in the right one, you'll get
some more items, but the real warp is the left one.

       You'll arrive in the room where Chocolat is hold captive. Free her,
then follow her to the Control Room where Magnius is. After learning that
Lloyd killed her grandmother Marble, Chocolat will let the guards capture
her. They will then take her away and you'll get a Pass. Then, you'll have
to face Magnius.

to bring the Spiritua Statue to that old lag at Hakonesia Peak, so head for
the House of Salvation.

       Talk with the grand priest. He will accept to give you the Spiritua

lost the real on during a pilgrimage at Thoda geyser. So, I guess we have no
other choice but to go retrieve it back there. Head southeast from Palmacosta

       Enter the house and pay the girl 200 Gald to use the boats. You'll
reach Thoda Geyser. Once there, go on the rocky mound at the right and look
at the blue stone tablet. A bridge will appear to a cave in the mountainside.

       Inside the cave, go straight, then downstairs for a chest containing
Mermaid's Tear. Head downstairs again, and go right for two more chests with
Life Bottle and Circlet. If you examine the blue sphere here, you can change
the Sorcerer's Ring's attribute to water, but don't change it yet. Keep the
fire attribute. Now there are 2 paths to choose from at the bottom of the
screen. Go through the first one (the left one).

       In this room, go down for a faded Memory Circle. Use the Memory Gem
you found in Palmacosta Ranch to unlock it and save your game. Between the
two columns at the right of the save point is a hidden passageway in the
wall. Find it and go through to find two chests containing White Silver and
Orange Gel. Also look behind the first column for a hidden chest with Ex Gem
Lv 1.

       Now, go at the left in the room with the save point. There is a scale
with a pot on it, and on each side, torches. Light up the 2 torches using the
Sorcerer's Ring's fire beam. Then, go back to the previous room and go
through the second path (the right one) at the bottom of the screen. Go
downstairs in this room for 2 chests containing Stun Bracelet and Circlet.
Also fight the enemy here for a Memory Gem. Then, head downstairs and go left
all the way to the next room.

      Here, pull the big block and push it on the green square near the door.
You'll hear a click sound. Now, go back to the room before the one with the
save point and use the blue sphere to switch the Sorcerer's Ring's attribute
to water. Now enter the room with the save point and shoot a beam of water
on the pot that's on the scale. The door in the room below will shut up but
stay open thanks to the block you moved under it. So, head for the room below,
the one with the other scale. Shoot some water in the pot here too, and a
platform will raise.

       Go back to the save point and save your game. When you're ready, head
left to the platform which just raised and enter the warp. The water seal
is here, and the boss too.

This is a pretty hard fight. I suggest having Lloyd, Colette (no choice),
Kratos and Genis in your party. You don't really need Raine. Having Genis in
your party is important because he has this very powerful earth spell that
will do around 500 damage to the enemy each time. Kratos will be the main
healer, along will Colette who can use items. Lloyd will be the main
attacker. You're going to need a lot of Apple and Orange Gels for this fight
if you want to keep the HP and TP high. Take down the 2 small enemies first,
then start attacking the boss. It should be ok as long as you have Genis
attacking with the Stalagmite technique.

       After the fight, Ramiel will give Colette new angel powers. Then,
leave the dungeon and you'll see the Spiritua Statue over some rocks on the
other side of the water. Genis will freeze the water so you can cross, simply
follow his directions. After getting the statue, Colette will feel bad again,
so you'll set a campfire. In the morning, leave the geyser and return to
Hakonesia Peak.

       Take the Spiritua Statue back to the old man and he'll let you have a

head for the peak and the guards will let you through.

try to blow up the ruin, but Raine will stop them (kind of). After the
cutscene, head for the east part of the town and head upstairs. Enter the
house at the right of the stairs. You'll learn that Aisha has been chosen to
be the sacrifice for the demon. Head back up the stairs to the ruin and
you'll meet the mayor. Raine will choose to take Aisha's place as the

       Go down the path at the left as you enter to find a chest containing
1800 Gald. Then climb upstairs to the entrance and Colette will open the
door. Inside the dungeon, go right for a chest with Beast Fang. Then, unlock
the Memory Circle using the Memory Gem you got at the geyser and save your
game. The layout of the dungeon makes you think you have to light up all the
torches inside, but it won't be necessary if you follow my directions.

       Head left, run over the spikes, and go up the stairs. Kill the enemy
there for a Memory Gem. At the top, there are 2 torches (the second one is at
the right of the wall) You can light them up with the Sorcerer's Ring if you
wish. Then, push the block at the edge of the platform to make it fall down
below. Go there and push the block onto the square on the ground to stop the
wind. Now you can light up the torch that's at the right of the entrance.

       Now, go through the passageway with spikes on the walls. Then go up
the stairs at the left and go all the way to a door with torches each side
of it. Before going in there, head downstairs at the right and push the block
there on the square to stop the wind. You'll find 2 chests if you go
northeast (Iron Guard, Blue Ribbon) and another chest (Beast Hide) if you go
south. Also light the torch here.

       Return to the door and light up the 2 torches. The door will open.
Before going in though, head downstairs again and change the attribute of
the Sorcerer's Ring to wind using the sphere in the alcove at the left. Then
go through the door to a room with 5 small fans.

       You have to activate them in the right order to open the door using
the Sorcerer's Ring's wind blow. There are also some hidden chests to get in
that room. Here are the orders you have to hit the fans to get the
chests and to open the door:


Blue - Red - Yellow - White - Green
will make the left wall collapse, with a chest containing Blue Ribbon

Red - Green - Yellow - White - Blue
will make the right wall collapse, with a chest containing Ex Gem Lv 2

Red - Yellow - Green - White - Blue
will open the door to the boss room


       Before facing the boss though, I suggest you save your game. When
you're ready, enter the room and be ready to face the dungeon boss.

This fight is quite easy if you compare it to the one you just did, so it
should be no problem. Simply defeat the guardian first, then Sheena.

       Now leave the dungeon and Colette will feel bad again, and the group
will set a campfire again. There will be a cutscene with Lloyd and Colette.
After that, head for the field.

From the House of Salvation, head north until you find the village of Luin.
You can also find the Guide Monument for Luin and Asgard if you go northwest
from Luin.

       Also known as the city of devastation. Go northwest of the village to
find injured Sheena. Raine will heal her, then Sheena will join your party.
Finally! Head back for the field. Now, you'll have to go the Human Ranch,
northeast of Luin, over some mountains.

       As you enter the ranch, you'll fight some enemies. After this, Sheena
and Raine will disguise themselves into Desian soldiers and infiltrate the
ranch with the others as prisoners. Go right to find a chest with Beast Hide.

       Enter the base through the northern door. Go on to the next room and
you'll see Botta. Then, Kvar will come too. In the next room, open the chest
for a White Robe. Follow the pathway to the save point, then go left at the
fork for another chest containing Iron Bracelet. If you fight the enemy here,
you'll get a Memory Gem.

       Then head up and Kvar will show up again. After the cutscene, leave the
ranch and enter the field. Go back to Luin.

Stop by Luin, then after the cutscene, return to the field and head northwest
from Luin. Cross the bridge there and head right after crossing the bridge
(kind of northeast) to find a chest at the land's edge with Technical Ring.
Now, follow the dirt path from the bridge until you arrive at a path leading
to the mountains. This is Hima.

       Enter the inn and talk to the lady standing in the stairway to learn
the man you are looking for passed away. Then, enter the door at the right
and examine the cauldron (or whatever) to find the Wonder Chef who'll teach
you how to make Risotto.

       Then, head up the mountain to the graveyard. You'll learn that you
can access the ranch from a passage hidden behind a boulder. You'll also
receive the Desian Ore. Now, head for the very top of the mountain to learn
about the dragon tour. Then, go back to the field and return to the Human
Ranch.

            Card of Earth
            Ex Gem Lv 2


       Examine the boulder near the entrance to find the secret passageway.
Then, you'll be ask to choose two party members to come along with you. I
suggest picking Kratos and Sheena as Lloyd's party will be the one fighting
the boss. You can use the refresher downstairs and the save point.

       Enter the door at the upper left corner of the room. In this room,
you'll find three chests containing Cleric's Hat, Pellets and Lamellar
Leather. Also examine the machine at the left and shut it down. Return to
the previous room.

       Enter the door at the left of the save point. There, head left and
examine the white sphere to change the Sorcerer's Ring's function. You can
now fire a blast that has a longer reach. What you must do in this room is
stop the conveyer belts. There are 6 control switches in the center of the
room and you must shut down them in order to stop the conveyer belts. So,
step on the 2 conveyers each side of the control switches and fire a blast
using the Sorcerer's Ring. Hit the 6 switches and the conveyers will stop
working. Now head for the top of the room and go up the stopped conveyer.
You'll find a chest with Ex Gem Lv 2. Enter the next room.

       There is a save point here, but it's not really worth wasting a Memory
Gem on it as there is a save point in the previous room. Now head for the
warp and you'll switch to Raine's team. Go through the door at the bottom
right corner of the room and head south.

       You'll end up outside of the ranch. Look at the right for a passage
leading to a door blocked by some blocks. Push the first block right, then
go behind it and push it back left. Pull down the next block, then push it
to the left. Do the same with the remaining block to access the door.
Enter the ranch.

       Go right, then north for a chest with Card of Earth. Examine the blue
button on the floor and a door will open elsewhere. Enter the room on your
left to free the prisoners. Then, head left again and leave through the door
there. There'll be another chest here with Stun Charm. Examine the blue
button here too to open another door. Head back inside the room  where the
prisoners were and leave through the middle door this time.

       Head for the 2 rooms that are now accessible since you activated the
buttons. You'll have to fight Raybits, then the deactivation will be complete
and you'll return to Lloyd's team. If you want to save before the boss fight,
head back to the previous room and save. Then, go into the warp to access
the boss room.

I found this fight to be terribly hard. I used about 10 Life Bottles and

Sheena, since you can't have Raine in the party, and Genis and Colette are
a bit weak on the defense side. My only advice for this fight is bring a lot
of Life Bottles or always keep the party at max HP.

You can find the Guide Monument for Hima by going south, then east behind
some mountains. Then, head for the Tower of Mana, north of Luin. Also get
the chest at the right of the Tower (northeast) for an Ex Gem Lv 2.

            Iron Mail
            Ex Gem Lv 2 (x2)


       Enter the Tower using the key you obtained in Hima. You'll have to
choose a party member to come along with you. Choose Kratos as he can heal,
since the other team will have Raine anyway.

       You'll be on a long stairway. Defeat the second enemy for a Memory
Gem. Head atop the stairs for a chest containing Armet Helm. Enter the door
at the top. You'll be in a room with a block. Stand in front of the door with
the red cloth and burn it using the Sorcerer's Ring. A ray of light will come
out. So, move the block in front of the light to duplicate it. Then, pull the
block down until the light hit the sphere at the right. The door on the left
will open, go through.

       In the next room, use the Memory Gem on the Memory Circle and save
your game. Then, check up the thingy on the other side and you'll switch to
Raine's team. Enter the next room. Burn the red cloth at the left so a ray of
light will come out. Move the block towards it. Then, move the left to open
the door. Go through.

       In this room are 3 chests (Moon Robe, Lunar Guard, Ex Gem Lv 2) and a
pretty hard puzzle. Go at the left of the entrance and burn the red cloth so
a light comes out. This puzzle is really hard to explain so I'll try my best.
There are 4 blocks in this room, and 3 orbs. The blocks are kind of
transparent, but have a grey corner at the top, each different.

The block with the bottom right corner will be block #1.
The block with the top right corner will be block #2.
The block with the top left corner will be block #3.
The block with the grey triangle will be block #4.

                |
                |
                |
L--------------[1]

The L and -- represent the light.
The () represents the orbs.
The [ ] represents the blocks.

Push block 1 into the light, near the wall to the right. Push block 2 between 
the northmost orb and the wall (to its right). Push block 3 to the left of the 
northmost orb, so the ray of light shoots down between the two orbs below.
Then place block 4 between these two orbs so the light hits both.

       After this puzzle, save your game at the save point and enter the next
room. There is a chest containing Stinger Ring. Then enter the room at the
right and leave through the south door. Then run up the stairway and enter
the door at the top. Go through the door at the left. There are 2 chests
here, with Ex Gem Lv 2 and Iron Mail. Then, cross the bridge of light at the
left and you'll switch to Lloyd. Save your game, then cross to the left and
rejoin Raine. Step in the warp.

       After the fight, Luna will ask you to find Aska. Colette will also
learn Sacrifice. Now, head for the first room of the tower. Look at the
library at the left to find Boltzman's Book.

       You'll need a unicorn horn to use it though. Head to the field and go
to Lake Umacy over some mountains near Luin. You will learn that the unicorn
is blocked at the bottom of the lake and that you need Undine in order to
save it. Undine is at the Seal of Water, so return to the Thoda Geyser.

Hard fight. Undine has an attack, Spray Attack, that will do a lot of damage.
When you see her casting it, don't stay close to her as it's pretty easy to
avoid if you're far. I suggest Lloyd, Kratos, Raine and Sheena for this
fight. You'll surely need some healing items and Life Bottles so make sure
you brought some.

       After the battle, you'll get Aquamarine. Leave Thoda Island and cross
back Hakonesia Peak. Head back to Lake Umacy, near Luin.

* From this point on, you won't be able to go back to previous areas, so
make sure you did all the sidequests in Sylvarant, like fighting the skull
at Ossa Trail (this sidequest is missable, so do it now). If you're sure 
you're ready for the second part of the game, continue on.


       Go to the second floor of the inn to find Pietro. Raine will heal him,
then head for the top of the mountain for the dragon tour. After the
cutscene, talk to Colette and choose the second answer. Then you'll get the
Assassin's Ring. Head back for the top of the mountain and choose any party
member to ride the dragon with you.

       You will wake up at Sylvarant Base. Go right, then up, downstairs at
the right to the next room. You can buy some items at the shop machine next
to the door, then head right to the memory circle and save your game.

       Enter the next room and change the attribute of the Sorcerer's Ring
to electricity. Go up the stairs to the next part of the room with some
blocks on the floor. Push the 2 blocks in this room side to side on the
platform surrounded by little pink lights on the floor. Place them
horizontally so you can use them as a bridge to reach the grey block. Push
down the grey block below, but don't push it on the blue square yet.

       Instead, push it against the wall at the right of the room to fill up
the gap separating the ledge with the chests and the other one. Then, push
the 2 other blocks between the platform with the stairs and the other one
(just south of the blue square). Place them side to side to create a bridge.
Now you can reach the 2 chests containing Straw Hat and Ex Gem Lv 2.

       Now you can push the grey block on the blue square and a stairway will
appear. Also move back the 2 other blocks on the platform with the pink
lights. Place them vertically, side to side. Now, use the new stairway to go
downstairs to a new room. Go down to the left and shoot a beam from the
Sorcerer's Ring on the electric pillar. Then, look at the machine nearby and
push the switch. The platform from the floor above will come down. If you
placed the 2 blocks correctly on it (vertically), you should be able to use
them as a bridge to cross to the other side.

       There, shoot the pillar and examine the nearby machine to drain all the
water from the room below. Return to the other side and push the grey block
down below. Then, cross back and go down the stairs here to the room below.
Push the grey block to the left on the blue square and the gate will lower.
Shoot on the pillar here, then slowly go back upstairs and you'll see a chest 
hidden in an alcove at the back of the platform where the machine that you
activated is. Open it for a Protect Ring.

       Head for the previously closed door that is now open and leave the
room. You'll be in a room that feels familiar... Enter the door at the left,
then go north to the hangar. You'll fly to Tethe'Alla, but will crash down on
the way, on the summit of Fooji Mountains.

Before continuing, there are some chests to find on the map as well as a
Guide Monument. First, there is a chest containing Anti-Magic Bottle if you
follow the path northwest from Fooji Mountains. Then, there is another chest
with Super Pellets south from Fooji Mountains, near a mountain trail. The
last chest with Reverse Doll is located northwest from the path just before
Meltokio city, in a hollow where the mountains are. It is in the forest part,
so you won't see it, just walk around to find it. If you're still feeling
like exploring, the Guide Monument for Meltokio region is southwest from the

northeast from Fooji Mountains.

       Sheena will leave you there and give you a letter. Don't worry, she'll
come back. The city is pretty big, but there's not a lot to do. There's an inn
at the right of the entrance and an item shop at the left.

       Head upstairs. You'll meet Zelos. After the cutscene, you can go right
for an armor shop, and left for a weapon shop. If you go left, there's also
the coliseum, where you can look at the bulletin board on the right to add
something to your training book. You can also find the Wonder Chef in the
armor shop, disguised in cat statue at the left of the counter. You'll learn
how to make Steak. I also suggest buying the Claw Gaunlet for Lloyd.

       When you're done, head upstairs to the castle. Go to the right to enter
the rich part of the city. Enter the second house (well, manor..) and go to
the second floor. Go to the left of the corridor to find another Wonder Chef,
you'll show you how to make Fruit Cocktail.

       Then, go to the castle and talk with the guards. They'll tell you to
go to the church, so head for the church at the left. Talk to the priest
inside. Then, head back outside to find Presea. You'll get to enter the
castle and Presea will join the party. You must go to the King's quarters,
which are located on the upper floor of the castle. You'll have to go up 2
sets of stairs to find it. Talk to the guards in front and once in there,
you'll learn that Zelos is a Choosen too.

       Now, leave the city and go to the field. Head for the Grand Thete'Alla

Head for Sybak.

       As you enter the sewers, go right, upstairs and left to change the
Sorcerer's Ring function. Its new function is to turn you small by pressing
X so you can enter small passageways and walk on spider webs. If you want
to turn back to your normal size, step on the blue pads on the ground. At
the left of the machine that changes the function of the Sorcerer's Ring,
you can see a small ledge along the wall. If you turn small, you can walk
on it and find a small hole in the wall. Enter it to find a bag containing
Ex Gem Lv 2.

       Go to the right and cross the spider web, then go upstairs. If you
defeat the enemy here, you'll get a Memory Gem. Then head for the stairs
at the end. Open the chest behind for an Ex Gem Lv 3, then climb them up.
Examine the yellow switches on the trash compactor to activate it. A block
of trash will come out. Push it to the left into the middle hole at the
edge. It'll fall in water. Take another block and push it down into the
right hole at the bottom edge, and another block down into the left hole
(still of the bottom edge). Also look at the wall on the left of the trash 
compactor to find a small hole in the wall. Turn small and enter it to find 
a bag containing Great Axe.

       Then, go back downstairs to the other set of stairs. Head down and
look behind the stairs for a hidden chest with Spirit Ring. Then, make 
yourself small and go at the right of the stairs. There's a small ledge you 
can walk on. You can now cross it to the other side since the trash blocks 
fill in the holes in the ledge. Once on the other side, turn the wheel and 
the door above will open. Go back to that door and go through to the next 
room.

       Unlock the Memory Circle in this room and save your game. Then, go
to the left and head downstairs. Make yourself small, and jump in the small
wooden boat. You'll cross to the other side and the trash block you pushed
in the water earlier will stop the boat. Turn the wheel here and a door
will open near the trash compactor. Go through that door to end up at the
top of the other room.

       Here is a trash compactor too, so take a block of trash and pull
it down on the catwalk. When you arrive at the corner of the catwalk, turn
small and pass on the other side of the block using the web, then pull the
block a bit. Go back on the other side of the block and push it to the right.
Push it right until it falls in the water below.

       Now, go back to the area with the save point. Go down the stairs at
the right of the entrance and look on the right of the stairs for a hidden 
chest with Breastplate. Then, make yourself small and walk on the ledge over 
the water. You can now cross because of the block you pushed from above. Go 
left at the fork and head upstairs. There should be a big cage here. Turn 
small and go inside. Go back to normal size and open the door of the cage 
at the right, then head back for the trash compactor at the top of the room, 
where the catwalk is.

       Take a new trash block and push it on the catwalk like before. Push
it to the fourth corner and push it right so it falls just in front of the
big cage. Then, go back to the cage and push the block in it. It will
activate the bridge at the left. Go back up to the trash compactor and take
another block. Push it from the last corner to the area below. Go to that
area and push the block in the water from the hole at the edge. Also make
yourself small and enter the small hole in the wall here for a bag
containing Ex Gem Lv 1.

       Now, go where the bridge is at the left of the cage and cross it. Go
downstairs, make yourself small and walk on the small ledge over the water
at the right. Go to the other side and turn the wheel here to open the door
above. Go through that door to another room. Go left for a chest with 2500
Gald, then head downstairs and after passing on the 3 blue pads on the
ground, look at the wall on your right for a hole. Turn small and go inside
for Thunderbolt, a weapon for Genis. Then continue and there's another hole
on the other side just before the 3 blue pads. Inside is Card of Lighting.
Then continue for an easy fight with Convict x3. Then, go upstairs and if
you wish, you can battle the fake chest on your right but the fight can be
hard so you can also come back later. Then exit the sewers to Meltokio.

                                                           Ghoul


       You'll have to fight 3 Cardinal Knights at the entrance, then go on
and change the Sorcerer's Ring's function. It can now make a light beam. You
can use it to open up paths through plants. If you need to recharge it, step
into mushrooms. Note that if you leave the forest through the other entrance,
you'll end up somewhere else on the field where the Guide Monument for Sybak
is located.

       Back in the forest, go for the path at the right of the Sorcerer's
Ring pedestal to end up in front of a path that splits up in 3. Before going
anywhere, get the chest hidden under a bush at the intersection for Drain
Charm. Now, take the south path and continue south and then east until you
find a chest behind a bush. Hold the X button to make some light on the bush
and wait until the bush disappears. It may take some time. Then open the 
chest for a Pretty Ribbon.

       Go back to the first intersection with the chest and the mushrooms.
This time, take the north path. You'll come across a chest on your way, make
some light on the bush around it and wait a couple of seconds for the bush to
disappear. Then open the chest for Phoenix Rod. Continue east to the next
screen and as soon as you see a path going southeast, follow it to a chest. 
Open it for Witch's Robe. Then, look above you and take the path east and 
make some light on the plants blocking your way. Then, continue east to 
another chest containing Angel Bracelet.

       Now, proceed east and go north when you can. Continue east and 
defeat the enemy right after clearing the plant blocking your way for a
Memory Gem. Then, go south all the way and south again. You'll notice a
sealed black chest on your way. Then, continue southeast until you arrive
at the save point. Save your game and move onwards for a boss battle.

Not a hard fight, but some life bottles will come in handy. Have Lloyd,
Zelos, Raine and any other party member. Physical attacks work well against
him.

       After the fight, you'll need to go to Mizuho, but note that if you
return in the forest after going to Mizuho, you can fight back that Skull you
fought in Ossa Trail. He's right in the path south from the black chest. I
suggest coming back for him later when you're stronger, since he's really
strong. He'll give you Yasakani Jewel if you defeat him. But, for now, leave
the forest and head for Mizuho.

Then Regal will join your party. Re enter the chief's house after the
conversation and examine the hall to find the Wonder Chef who'll show you how
to make Ramen. Also, buy the Mizuho Potion from the shop for later use.

       Something else you could do is talk to the ladies in the village with
Zelos as the lead character to receive some items. Now, go back to the field.
Return in the forest and leave through the east exit to end up in another part
of the field. Cross the bridge and head for Ozette.

This fight isn't hard at all, though there are many enemies to take down all
at once. The Auto Repair Unit will sometimes heal the other enemies, so make
sure to defeat that one first. Also hit the Defense System first since some
enemies will come back and it's the door you really need to hit.


       After the boss battle, you'll get to really enter the mine. If you want
to get the chests with Sage and Ex Gem Lv 1 before continuing, go back to
where you fought the boss and look at the right of the door for the chest with
Sage. Then look behind the first wagon on the track near the entrance of the
Mine for the chest with Ex Gem Lv 1.

       Now, enter the mine and go to right. Activate the machine here so you
can use the moving platform. Get on it to cross to the other side. Enter the
tunnel here and you'll see a big boulder blocking your way in. Go back and
get on the moving platform a second time. There's a switch in the middle
you can press to change the direction of the track. Use the Sorcerer's Ring
to hit that switch and the moving platform will bring you left instead of
straight. There's a mysterious door here, but you can't open it. The enemy
near that door will give a Memory Gem if you defeat it.

       You now need to go down, and there's a moving platform that goes up and
down near the door, so use it to reach the bottom. Once in the area below,
look behind the old wagons where the old track is at the right for a hidden
chest containing Crescent Ax. Then, go southeast to change the function of the
Sorcerer's Ring. You can now set up bombs to blow up these large boulders. Go
up the wood plank at the left for a chest with Saint Rapier, then go northwest
for another chest containing Sand Saber at the left of the slime enemy.

       Go back up using the elevator thing, and go left to blow up the
boulder there. Then go back down and re change the Sorcerer's Ring back to
its original function. Go back up again and go right to get on the moving
platform. Shoot the switch in the middle to re-position the track like it was
before. Then, go to where you blew up the boulder at the left and jump to the
other side. Go back down to the area below and switch back the Sorcerer's
Ring to the bomb function. Now, go back up (it's the last time, I swear)
and get on the moving platform to cross to the other side.

       Enter the tunnel here and blow up the boulder blocking your way. Go
straight, then left for a chest in the alcove (Iron Greaves). Then, go up and
blow up the boulder here too. Go right, then down the wood plank. Activate
the machine here, then go to the right for a chest with Battlesuit. Go back
up the wood plank, and return to the left. This time, go north and then down
the wood plank here. There's machine here too, so activate it and go back up.
Continue north, then go right and blow up the boulder. Go north again, then
down the plank here for a chest with Silk Robe. There's also a gnome here,
who asks for a potion. If you don't have any, it would be a good thing to
come back here after the dungeon to give him one. Just buy the Mizuho Potion
back at Mizuho and come back to give him. It will help you later in the game.

       Then go back up, go right, blow up the boulder, go down, save your
game on the Memory Circle, and go south for an elevator. If you go down that
elevator, you'll find two chests with Thunder Cape and Super Pellets. Then
go back up and go to the right of the save point. Here is a complicate part.
If you step on the trap on the ground, a boulder will come out and chase you
down the path. If you go right, you'll see a spinning stone that blocks your
way. To solve this puzzle, don't touch the switch that stops the boulders;
leave it on.

       To make things easier, set an EX Gem Lv2 to Lloyd and set it to
Personal, that way your character will run faster. If you can't do this
because you have no Ex Gems, don't worry, you can still do the puzzle, but
it'll be a bit more difficult. Once this is done, approach the spinning
stone but keep a distance. Slowly walk to the left after it sees you and
it'll start following you. Bring it to the farthest you can, near where the
boulders come out. When it won't go any further, quickly run to the trap
on the ground and step on it to activate the boulder drop. Run to avoid the
boulder, and when you turn the corner, the spinning stone will get crushed
by the boulder. Before going anywhere, go back down using the elevator
where you got the 2 chests and examine the pieces of the crushed spinning
stone to get Colette's dark weapon (it's a side quest), Evil Eye.

       Now, that's the spinning stone's no more, you can continue your way,
so go downstairs to the next screen. Then, go downstairs again at the right
of the bridge to find a chest with Ex Gem Lv 3. Go back up and cross the
bridge. Here, blow up all the crates on the right to find a chest with the
Inhibitor Ore you were looking for. Your task here is done, so go back to
the entrance of the mine, and if you haven't already done it, don't forget
the chest at the right of the entrance and the one behind the first wagon.
Then leave the mine and return to Ozette with the ore.

       Go talk to the vice-chief. After this, go out and talk to Sheena at
the other side of the village. She'll accept to summon Volt. Go back to the
dock near Ozette and take the boat north to arrive at the temple where Volt is.

 Temple of Lightning

Items: Silver Guard        Enemies: Lightning Bird
            Duel Helm                           Thunder Sword
            Thunder Scepter                 Gold Skeleton
            Shining Star                         Gold Slime

            Spirit Bottle
            Ex Gem Lv 2
            Ex Gem Lv 3 (x2)


       Go straight from the entrance, avoid the traps, and go left for a
save point. Now there are 3 paths in the middle you could go into. Each of
these paths lead to a Lightning Rod. If you try going into the middle
path, you'll step on a panel that'll send you a thunderbolt, so don't use
that path yet. Instead, go in the one at the right and examine the Lightning
Rod. A pole will come out from above. Now, return to the middle path and step
on the panel. Thunder will strike the Lightning Rod at the right. You can now
pass over the panel so examine the Lightning Rod here too and its pole will
lower. Then, go back in the right path and lower the pole here too. Now, go
to the left path and raise the pole of the Lightning Rod here. Then go in the
middle path and step on the panel. The thunder will strike the left pole and
destroy a block on its left. Go there now that the block isn't blocking the
way anymore and examine the pedestal to change the Sorcerer's Ring's
function. It can now shoot a blue electricity ray.

       Go at the very right of the area and you'll see blue and red blocks.
Destroy the blue blocks using the blue electricity ray, then get the chest
behind for Silver Guard. Then, go in the middle path and go upstairs to the
second room. There is a path on your left and one on your right. Take any,
just go upstairs to the very top of the room. Shoot the blue block at the top
where the 3 colored blocks are one atop the other. Now all's left is the
yellow and the red block, which we'll deal about later.

       Go back down and go straight to the entrance to the next room. It's
blocked by a blue block, so get rid of it by destroying it with the Sorcerer's
Ring. Enter the next room. There's a save point here too. Go up the stairs at
the left and up the other stairs too, and enter the door at the top. You
should now be in a dark room with thunder strikes. Simply reach the top
without falling. Once in the next room above, enter the door at the bottom of
the screen.

       You should now be on a kind of balcony around the large room. Go at the
right and shoot the blue block in the air. The chest that was on will fall
below. Then, activate the Lightning Rod and the platform you are standing on
will fall. The chest that fell is now there (Ex Gem Lv 3). Then go left and
shoot the blue block here also to make the chest on fall below. Then activate
the Lightning Rod so the platform falls again. The chest is there (Duel Helm).
Then go left again and shoot the blue block to make the chest fall, then go
right and shoot the blue block here also to make another chest fall down.
Activate the Lightning Rod to make the platform fall, then get the chest with
Thunder Scepter.

       Go left and activate the Lightning Rod so the thunder will strike there
instead of below. Then go right and enter the door here. Another dark room.
There's a chest in that one though. After you go down the second set of
stairs, go right and look at the edge of the path that goes under the path
above. It's hard to see, but look carefully and you'll find it. It contains
Spirit Bottle. After getting the chest, head for the top of the room. You'll
be back in that room with the yellow blocks in the wall at the back. Now leave
this room through the door at the other side of the room. Back in the dark
room, head down, go through the door, and back in the room with the save
point, you'll find the chest you made fall earlier at the top of the left
stairway. It contains Ex Gem Lv 2.

       Now, go down the stairs at the left of the room to the area below with
the water. Now you can walk in. Go up the stairs at the right and you'll find
another pedestal. Examine it to change the Sorcerer's Ring again. Now the
electricity ray is yellow, so you'll be able to destroy yellow blocks. Before
going anywhere, go back to the entrance of the temple, in the first room
where the first save point was at the beginning. Return to where the save
point is and go down from there. There are 2 yellow blocks blocking the way.
Destroy them using the yellow electricity ray and get the chest containing
Shining Star. Then, go back to the second room where the 3 colored blocks
were at the top of the room. Go upstairs to the top and destroy the yellow
block this time. Now only the red one remains.

       Then, still in that room, go in the door at the right (up the right
stairway) and you'll be in another dark room. Reach the top of that room to
end up on another balcony. Shoot the yellow block in the air there and the
Lightning Rod will fall above the machine below. Go back to the second room,
and this time, go up the left stairway and destroy the 2 yellow blocks
blocking the door here. Don't go in yet though, you'll go in later. Now go to
the third room, the one with the save point.

       Go up the stairs at the right and examine the machine to activate the
Lightning Rod above it. Then go up the stairs at the left of the room and
enter the dark room. Then go to the next room above, the one with the yellow
blocks on the wall. Go to the right of that room, enter the door here, go down
the dark room to the balcony, and once there, deactivate the Lightning Rod at
the left. Now the thunder will strike the machine with the Lightning Rod on.
Go back to the room with the yellow blocks. The machine here is also activated.

       What you must do is destroy the correct yellow blocks in order to create
a path for the electricty. There are 4 paths possible. Start by going upstairs
and destroying the 2 left blocks of the fourth row. Then, go back down and
start the machine. The electricity will take the first path and make a chest
fall below. Now, destroy the 2 blocks of the first row and start the machine.
A boulder above will fall down and crush the bridge below. Go down the broken
bridge, and up the stairs to open the chest you made fall. It contains Battle
Cloak. Then, go down the stairs, and go through the door at the bottom.

       You'll find another pedestal to change the Sorcerer's Ring to the red
electricity ray. First thing to do with it, go back to the entrance of the
temple (first save point) and destroy the red blocks blocking the way at the
right to get a chest with Ex Gem Lv 3. Then, go to the second room and before
destroying the remaining block at the top of the room, go to the door at the
left and enter the dark room here. Reach the top to end up on another
balcony. Destroy the red block here to get a chest with Power Greaves.

       Go back to the third room and save your game! Then go to the second
room, upstairs to the top and destroy the remaining red block to unleash Volt.

I had no real problem with that boss, but I'll try to help. My party
consisted of Lloyd, Raine, Zelos and Sheena. As the fight starts, make Raine
use her spells to raise the attack and defense of the party, then attack Volt
with Sheena, Lloyd and Zelos. When you see that someone is injured, make
Raine use Nurse to heal the whole party, that way you'll always keep the
whole party well healed. Continue to use the attack and defense spells to
raise those stats. Use as much Orange Gels as you need. With the attack and
defense stats raised, the fight will seem much easier.

       After the fight, Sheena will receive the title Summoner. She'll
finally make a pact with Volt. All in there is done, so leave the temple and
return to the dock. Take the boat to the arctic continent at the northeast of
the map. You'll see a small white square on the map, head there to find a
dock between the rocks. Land and enter Tethe'Alla Base.

       In the room you start in, make sure to examine the white sphere to
change the attribute of the Sorcerer's Ring to electricity. Then, leave
through the bottom door and you'll end up in a room with 4 doors. I'll call
this room the main room. Go through the door at the right to arrive in a
corridor. Here, pull the blue block down, then push it to the right, just
toward the light beam. This will block the beam so you can pass without
being hurt. Go to the right and enter the room there. Defeat the enemy in
this room to get the first part of the pass code.

       Go back to the main room, and this time, enter the door at the left.
Pull the block down, then push it left into the light beam to block it. You
can now pass so go left and enter the first room for a chest with Ex Gem Lv 2.
Then enter the second room for a chest with Card of Ice. Then take back the
blue block and place it in front of the other beam so you can go north. Go
into the corridor at the left and enter the room here for a chest with Ex Gem
Lv 3. Also fight the enemy here to get the second part of the pass code.

       Go back to the main room. Go through the door at the right, and this
time, head north into the corridor. You'll end up in a room with a lot of
light beams and a chest containing Silver Circlet. Grab the blue block in the
corner, push it left in front of the light beam, then pass to the other side
of the beam and grab back the block. Pull it left, then push it up in front
of the other light beam. Pass and go through the door on your left. Go to the
left in the corridor, move the block toward the beam so you can pass, then go
left and enter the room there. Fight the purple soldier in this room to get
the last part of the pass code.

       Go up the small stairs near where the purple soldier was and using the
Sorcerer's Ring, shoot the blue machine with green rings around it. Then go
down and activate the machine near the lift below. It will go up. Go back to
the main room, enter the room at the left, then go north in the corridor,
continue north until you arrive in a room that is above the one you were in.
Defeat the enemy here for a Memory Gem, then go upstairs and grab the block
that is on the lift. Pull it left until you see a hole in the small barrier
surrounding the platform. Push it into that hole and the block will fall
below, destroying the guard system surrounding 2 chests down there. Go back
to that room and open the 2 chests for Dragon Tooth and Lightning Sword.

       Now the final room. Talk to Orochi now that you have the pass codes.
Then, from the main room, enter the door at the right and go north into the
next corridor. Then enter the door at the left in the next room, and once
in the other corridor, head north and go up the stairs leading to a room
with a save point. Use the Memory Gem on it and save your game. Go up the
stairs northeast for a chest with Silver Mail. Then, grab the 2 blocks in
this room and push them northwest into the 2 gaps against the wall. Then
go upstairs at the left and down the stairs leading to where you pushed
the 2 blocks. You can now cross to a chest with Lavender.

       Also hit the blue machine with the green rings around to activate it
with the Sorcerer's Ring (shoot hit diagonally). Then, go back down and pull
the blocks out of the alcoves, then push them next to the stairs in the
southwest corner of the room. Align the 2 blocks against the side of the 
stairs, then go on the stairs and from the landing of the stairs (in the 
center), walk on the 2 blocks you placed just next to it and open the chest 
hidden behind the right of the stairs for Aqua Cape.

       Then, pull back one of the blocks and push it right on the lift near 
the machine you activated before. Place the block on the top right corner 
of the lift. Then, while on the lift, press the switch at the left of the 
lift to raise the lift. Then push the block at the right of the switch 
above and press the switch again to go back down. Then use the stairs
at the left of the room to go up to where you left the block next to the
switch. Pull the block to the right, then push it down at the end of the
platform where there is a gap in the barrier. It will fill up the hole so
you can cross over. Stand on it and shoot the blue machine with the green
rings to activate it.

       Go back down there and stand on the lift at the right of the room.
Press the switch next to the lift to go up. Once in the area above, go left
and shoot the blue machine here. Then go north and open the chest there for
Beam Shield. Then go down using the lift with the block on. Once down, push
that block into the gap in the barrier at the right. It will fill up a hole
so you can reach the chest with Ex Gem Lv 3. Now, leave the room and re-
enter it to reset the emplacement of the blocks. Take the 2 blocks in the
room and push them to the right. Place both of the lift there and stand on
the lift too. Press the switch to go up.

       Grab one of the blocks and push it north. Then push it into the gap
at the left so you can reach the chest with Tomahawk Lance. Go back and
grab the other block. Push that one into the gap at the right so you can
reach the other side. There, use the lift to go up again. Check the door
here and enter the correct pass codes you got from the soldiers. The pass
code isn't always the same.

       The door to the hangar will open, so go in to find the Rheairds.
There'll be a boss battle after the cutscene.

Now that you can fly using the Rheairds, head for the northwest corner of the

need to head for the Flying Dragon's nest in order to save Colette. The nest
is located right above the small isle with the Celtic-like stones, south from

Defeat the two Baby Dragons first, then the fight will be much easier. Winged
Dragon has some strong attacks, but pretty easy to avoid as his attack
pattern is predictable. My party consisted of Raine, Lloyd, Zelos and Regal.
I had the three guys attack the dragons with their strongest attacks and
Raine heal the party.

       After the fight, you'll be at the Temple of Earth.

            Ex Gem Lv 1
            Ex Gem Lv 2
            Ex Gem Lv 3


Before entering this temple, make sure you gave the potion to the gnome in
Toize Valley Mine and that you learned how to cook curry from Tabatha at
Altessa's House!


       Change the Sorcerer's Ring function to earthquake, then stand next to
the 4 rock pillars and use it to make them crumble. You'll then see a gnome
on the bridge. If you gave the potion to the gnome in Toize Valley Mine,
he'll let you pass. If not, go back to Mizuho, buy a Mizuho Potion, return
to Toize Valley Mine, give the potion to the gnome, and come back here at
last.

       Cross the bridge and follow the path to the right. You'll see an
immobile slime enemy standing behind a rock. About 2 feet before its
emplacement, use the Sorcerer's Ring to create an earthquake and some rocks
will crumble and make a new path. Go down that path and go left. Use the
Sorcerer's Ring next to the rock pillar to make it crumble. A chest
containing Mythril Guard will fall near you. Then, go right and enter the
cave here. Go down the slope for a chest containing Mythril Bracelet. You
can't go any further, so go back to the first area.

       This time, head south from the bridge. Go down that path and enter the
cave at the end. Cross the bridge to find a chest containing Mythril Circlet.
Go back to the first area, and head all the wall east from the bridge. Enter
the cave here and cross the bridge. Head up the mountain for a chest
containing Bellebane. Then, talk to the first gnome. He'll ask you to cook
some curry for him. If you haven't already learned this recipe, go back to
Altessa's House and talk to Tabatha to learn how to make curry. Then come
back here. After you cook some curry for him, he'll let you pass.

       Talk to the second at the left this time. He'll offer you his help and
disappear. The bridge you are currently on is breakable. Each time you use
the earthquake on, it'll collapse and you'll fall below. There are a lot of
chests to get here, and you'll need to do that part 3 times if you want all
the chests. The bridge you are on is made of 3 sections. Stand on the
rightmost section and use the earthquake to fall below. Go right for a chest
with Ex Gem Lv 3. Then, use the earthquake on the small bridges 3 times until
there is a bridge with 3 sections. Stand on the middle one and use the
earthquake. Below, go right for a chest with Ancient Rod. Then is a bridge
with 2 sections. Stand on the left one and use the earthquake. Then go left
for a chest with Bardiche. Then use the earthquake until you reach the bottom.

       Talk to the gnome on the left to go back up. There are still some
chests left back where the wooden bridges are, so go back there. This time,
stand on the leftmost section of the bridge and use the earthquake to fall
down. Use the earthquake on the next bridge, then go left for a chest with
Ex Gem Lv 2. Use the earthquake on the next bridge to go down and get the
chest with Ex Gem Lv 1. Then break all the next bridges to go all the way
down. There is still a last chest to get, so go back to the first bridge at
the top. This time, stand on the middle section of the bridge. Use the
earthquake to fall down, then use it on the next bridge, then go left for
the chest you missed before (Ghost Shell). Now you've got all the chests
so go back to first area of the temple.

       Talk to the gnome in red near the entrance and he'll ask you to get
rid of the monsters in his way. Go down the south path and defeat the enemies
to clear the gnome's way. Make sure the gnome enters the cave at the end of
the path before you, then go in and talk to the gnome on the bridge. When he 
jumps, use the earthquake at the same time. Do this 3 times to break the 
bridge. Save your game using the save point, then go to the altar.

Although Gnome may look weak, he's pretty strong. He has some powerful

to also have Zelos or Regal in your party since they have some healing spell
to help Raine with the healing. If you have Genis in your party, make him use

After the Temple of Earth, head outside and fly to the northeast continent of
the map, the arctic one. Before entering Flanoir, fight the Penguinist
enemies in the field until you get 3 Penguinist Quills, an item randomly
dropped by the Penguinists. You can also use Colette's Item Thief technique
to occasionally steal it from them. It's a rare drop, so it could take a
while... don't despair.



___________________________________________

 Flanoir - The Snowy City
--------------------------
(first visit)


Items: Nebilim


       Make sure you got Colette's darkness weapon, Evil Eye, before entering
Flanoir. If not, go back to Toize Valley Mine and examine the crushed pieces
of the spinning stone tablet to find it.

       Talk to the guy leaning in front of the second house near the entrance
to start the Devil's Arms side quest. He will ask you to find the 9 darkness
weapons and return them to him once you have them. He will also give you
Lloyd's darkness weapon, Nebilim, along with the Nebilim Key, used to open
black chests.

       Then, head down at the right of the entrance and a guy will ask you to
get him a Celsius' Tear. To pick up a Celsius' Tear though, you will need
Penguinist Gloves. And to make Penguinist Gloves, you'll need 3 Penguinist
Quills. If you haven't already gotten them, go in the field around the city
and fight some Penguinists until you get 3 Penguinist Quills, which
Pengunists drop after battles once in a while.

       Once you have the 3 Penguinist Quills, enter the accessories shop and
talk to the old man. Give him the 3 Penguinist Quills so he can make
Penguinist Gloves for you. Equip the gloves to any of your party members who
can wear them.

       Before leaving the city, enter the church at the top of the city and
look in the top left corner, behind a column, to find the Wonder Chef for the
Quiche recipe. Now head out of the city.

       This is optional as it is a side quest, but it's better to do it now
before the chest disappears. Now that you got the Nebilim Key from the guy in
Flanoir, you can open that black chest west from the save point. It contains
Fafnir, Zelos/Kratos' darkness weapon.

            Ex Gem Lv 3


Before entering this temple, make sure you have the Penguinist Gloves from
Flanoir.


       Head for the Ice Temple south from Flanoir. In the entrance area of
the temple, you can get 2 chests at the right (Ancient Robe, Defenser) and
also another chest at the left, south from the ice spot. This one contains
Mythril Shield. Then go inside the temple.

       Change the Sorcerer's Ring's attribute to ice. Then go upstairs for a
chest containing Ice Coffin. Go right for another chest with Mythril
Gauntlet. At the fork, head up the slope on your left for a chest with
Mythril Armor. Then go through the door to end up outside of the temple. Go
to the right and shoot the water drop with the ice Sorcerer's Ring. It will
freze the water drop and turn it into an ice block. Use it to cross to the
other side, then continue to the next entrance.

       Inside, open the chest for Ex Gem Lv 2. Then examine the small frozen
flower to pick up Celsius' Tear. Make sure you have the Penguinist Gloves
equipped. If not, go back to Flanoir to get them (check the Flanoir
walkthrough). Now go back inside the other part of the cave.

       At the fork, this time, head right and cross the ice bridge. Then head
south and look at the right for a water drop. Shoot it with the Sorcerer's
Ring to freeze it and create an ice block. Push the block in the hole at the
left and cross to the other side. Examine the waterfall on your left to
freeze the water using the Celsius' Tear.

       People who played Pokemon Gold/Silver will know what to do here. There
are 3 path leading to the ice. Start from the rightmost one, then go:

North, West, South, West, North, West, North, East, South, West

       You'll end up next to the chest with Rosemary. There are also 3
paths leading to the ice here. Start from the bottom one, then go:

East, North, West, South, East, North, East, North

       There is also a chest here with Ex Gem Lv 3. Then, head up to a room
with ice statues. You have to place them correctly in order to open the door.
Here goes:

The bottom statue must face right
The left statue must face right
The right statue must face down
The top statue must face left

       The door will then open, so go in.

This boss is pretty hard. Fenrir and Celsius are both pretty strong. The best

Genis use his best fire spells if you choose him for the fight, Raine use
Nurse or Healing Circle, and Lloyd and Sheena attack Fenrir (then Celsius). I
personally chose Zelos for the fight as he has First Aid, but you can also
pick up Genis if you prefer. Regal is also a good choice as he is pretty
strong and also has a healing spell.

       This is optional as it is a side quest, but if you want the Devil
Arms, you'd better do it now before you forget. Make sure you talked to the
green gnome in Altessa's House. After talking to him, he should have returned
to the Temple of Earth. So now that you are here, head through the door at
the left of the bridge at the entrance of the temple and go right. On your
way, there will be a strong enemy called Dragon. Fight him if you wish, or
just escape. Then talk to the group of gnomes. They'll leave after the green
gnome arrives. So now that they're gone, you can pass and open the black
chest on your right (make sure you got the Nebilim Key from Flanoir). Inside
the chest is Sheena's darkness weapon, Gates of Hell.

       Walk to the control room. You'll arrive in a room with tiles on the
floor that you must walk on in order to light them. What you must do is find
a way to step on all the tiles until they are all lighted up. The solution
to the puzzle of the first floor is:

Walk right 3 tiles, up 2 tiles, left 2 tiles, down 4 tiles, right 2 tiles,
up 1 tile.

       A platform will appear so you can cross to the next part. There's
another floor here, more complicated this time.

Walk right 1 tile, down 2 tiles, right 2 tiles, down 2 tiles, right 2 tiles,
up 2 tiles, left 2 tiles, up 4 tiles, right 2 tiles, down 4 tiles,
right 2 tiles, up 2 tiles, left 5 tiles.

       Enter the next room and change the function of the Sorcerer's Ring.
Then go up using the elevator. In this room, you can find 3 chests if you
look behind the pillars in the corners of the platform (Stone Charm, Vajra,
Holy Staff). Then press all the switches around the large cage to free the
captives. Go back in the elevator and go up to the next floor.

       I hate that part. You need to call a small platform using the
Sorcerer's Ring, then ride it the tracks and enter the portals until you
reach the top of the room. You must choose the right tracks by pressing X
when you pass over the small circle things to change track. Finding the right
path isn't that hard, it's just annoying. Once you reach the top of the room,
go in the elevator and leave through the other door.

       Now you should be in a room with a white warp portal. Each time you
press X to use the Sorcerer's Ring, the warp will change color. Make it red
and enter it. You'll warp to another floor. Here, go left for a chest with
Ex Gem Lv 2. Then, go back into the red warp (ignore the white one) to
return to the first warp. This time, make it green and enter it. Then go
right for a chest with Saffron. Go back to the first warp. This time, make
it blue and enter it. Go right for another white warp. Make it red and
enter it. Then go right to find Lock 2.

       Go back into the red warp to get to the previous warp. Make it blue,
and re enter it. Go right and make the warp green, and enter it. Go left for
a chest with Holy Cloak. Then, go upstairs to the next warp. Make it green,
and enter it. Then go left for a chest with Ex Gem Lv 3. Then use the stairs
to reach Lock 1.

       Go back into the previous warp, and this time, make the warp red and
enter it. Go right for a chest with Minazuki. There's another chest at the
right with Ex Gem Lv 4. Then go upstairs and make the warp at the top blue.
Enter it, then go left for a chest with Mythril Ax. Then go upstairs to
find Lock 3 at the top.

       Go back downstairs to the white warp. Make it red, and enter it. Then
go right for a chest with Ex Gem Lv 3. Go back to the previous warp, and
this time, make it blue. Go in, then go right for a chest with Mythril
Greaves. Then go upstairs for another chest with Revive Ring. Then go back
downstairs and go left into the blue warp. Warp to the previous warp and
make it green. Go in and you'll be warped to a save point. Save your game,
then go in the elevator and go up.

Genis' darkness weapon.

 Temple of Darkness
--------------------


       Head for the Temple of Darkness, over some mountains in the southwest
corner of the southwest continent on the map. You'll learn that you need
light because the temple is too dark. Head back for Meltokio.

 Meltokio - The Imperial City
------------------------------
(third visit)


       Enter Meltokio by the sewers, then head for the research lab. You'll
meet Kratos on the way. The guys at the research lab will want to give a Blue
Candle, but will then change their mind and ask you to save Kate first.

       Go to the Coliseum and talk to the receptionist. Choose the strongest
party member. I suggest Lloyd, but make sure to heal all of his HP and TP
before entering. Then, talk to the guard to start the fight. You'll fight 2
Duelists and a Sorceress, which shouldn't be too hard. After the battle, go
through the door at the right to save Kate.

       You'll then be at Ozette and will finally get the Blue Candle you need
to enter the Temple of Darkness. Before going there, enter Presea's House and
look in her bedroom for a bear which is in fact the Wonder Chef (Gratin).
Then head for the temple.



___________________________________________

 Temple of Darkness
--------------------


Items: Headband            Enemies: Manticore
           Shadow Dancer                     Pharaoh Knight
           Ex Gem Lv 2 (x2)                 Coffinmaster
           Ex Gem Lv 3                         Druid
           Ex Gem Lv 4


       Enter the temple and go left for a chest containing Ex Gem Lv 2 at the
end. Then cross the bridge to the next room. Go right and you'll see a shadow
fragment. There are 5 shadow fragments in this dungeon to bring to the boss
room. Ignore the shadow fragment for the moment and continue right. Go through
the opening to the next room. Go downstairs and half-way through the stairs,
you'll see a hole in the wall with light coming from it. Examine it and Lloyd
will go inside. There you'll find the pedestal to change the Sorcerer's Ring.

       It can now produce darkness to put out light. Thorough the dungeon,
you'll see light crystals which you must turn off using the Sorcerer's Ring.
Then Lloyd will put some darkness fog on the block with red eyes. Doing this
allows you to move these blocks. Pull out the block from the wall and you'll
see that another block has moved elsewhere. Go back to where the shadow
fragment was near the entrance and touch it. It will start following you
around. Put out the light on your left so the shadow can pass. Then continue
left since you can now pass because the red eyes block moved out of the way.
Put out the other light on your way so the shadow can follow you.

       Then go south and you'll see 2 green eyes blocks. Put some darkness
fog on the one at the right to move it. Then push it into the wall and you
will see a block with a shadow fall down. Then put the darkness fog on the
block at the left and pull it out of the wall. This will move another green
eyes block. Also pick up the shadow fragment here so it starts following you
around. Also note that each time you fight an enemy, the shadows will stop
following you, so you have to touch them again before continuing.

       Now go right and down the stairs. The block here has moved out of the
way so you can now pass. Then go left, put out the light, go south and you'll
see that block you just pushed down there. Pull it, then push it at the end
of the part of the floor with black lines northeast from its initial
emplacement. The shadow on it will get off the block. Go back to pick up that
shadow. Then go right and put out the light here too. Also fight the enemy
here for a Memory Gem. Then, continue right of the light crystal for a hidden
alcove with a chest containing Ex Gem Lv 3.

       Now go down the slope near the light crystal to find a save point. It
also acts as a checkpoint to bring your shadow fragments. Make sure your 3
shadow fragments followed you down here and leave them there. There will
stay there when you leave the room so you don't have to pick them up again
(When you leave a room, the shadows don't follow you). Now there are 2 more
shadow fragments to get.

       Return where the shadow on the block was (the block you moved to get
the shadow on it). There is a blue eyes block here, at the left. Put some fog
on it to move it, then push it into the wall. Now go back to the top of the
room where the first shadow fragment was (use the long stairway in the room
at the right since you can't get past the green eyes block). Now you can
reach the shadow south from the door, since the blue eyes block has moved and
make a kind of bridge to reach the shadow there. There is also a chest
containing Shadow Dancer here. Pick up the shadow fragment and go north. The
shadow will now always wait for you on that side, so don't worry about it and
return in the previous room, the one with the long stairway.

       Go back to the secret passageway where you changed the Sorcerer's Ring
and pull out of the wall the red eyes block to move out the other one. Go back
up the long stairway to where you left the shadow fragment. It should still be
here so pick it up and go left all the way to the 2 green eyes blocks. Push
the left one so the other green eyes block moves out of the stairway. Then go
downstairs and go back to the save point. Leave your shadow fragment here with
the others. One more to go.

       Go back in the room with the long stairway and pick up the chest with
Headband hidden under the stairs. Then go in the secret passageway to where
you changed the Sorcerer's Ring. Pull the red eyes block out of the wall. Go
back up the stairway to where the first shadow was and go left to the other
red eyes block in the wall. Push it completely inside the wall. Then go back
to the room with the long stairway and enter the door at the bottom. Go back
up to the save point and up the slope at the right. Go left to where you 
moved the block that had a shadow on it, and follow the path going right.
You can now cross the red eyed block as a bridge to get the last shadow.
Pick it up and take it back to the save point with the other ones.

       Now you have all the shadow fragments, so go northeast from the save
point for a stairway leading down to another room. In that new room, if you
explore a little, you will find 2 chests, one with Ex Gem Lv 2, and the other
with Ex Gem Lv4. Then continue until you find a faded save point. Save if
you wish, then head down for the boss. Make sure all the 5 shadow fragments
followed you down there! Sometimes these glitchy AI don't follow you and
stay stuck in corners, so don't walk too fast if you want them to follow
you. Bring them to the altar to start the boss fight.

For this fight, you will need Colette. She has some light spells, which are
the best against darkness enemies. Use her Angel Feathers spell or Judgment
spell. Raine also have some light based spells. You should do fine if you
always use the light spells and heal well the party members.

       After the fight you will receive an Amethyst. Then leave the temple
and return to Sylvarant. The 3 last summon spirits you must form a pact with
are located at Triet Ruins, Balacruf Maussoleum and the Tower of Mana.

title "Elemental Summoner". Now the only summon spirit remaining is the
light one, Aska.

       Now the place you need to go is the Linkite Tree. It's pretty hard to
locate if you don't know where to look. The Linkite Tree is located right
behind the mountain northeast of the Sylvarant Base. You'll need the
Rheairds to access this area.



___________________________________________

 Linkite Tree
--------------


       Examine the tree and Lloyd will tell you to go talk to Professor Nova,
who is at Nova's Caravan. The caravan is at the right of the entrance
(the front one) of Hakonesia Peak.



___________________________________________

 Nova's Caravan
----------------


       Talk to professor Nova, then talk to the children to receive the
Linkite Nut (you may already have it). Then, talk to the woman for a
cutscene with the party members. You'll need an Exsphere Shard, so if you
don't already have it, head for Dirk's House.



___________________________________________

 Dirk's House
--------------


       Talk to Dirk and he'll give you many items, including a Metal Sphere
and the Exsphere Shard. You can also head up to Lloyd's room and look next
to his bed for the Wonder Chef (Miso Stew). Now that you have everything you
need, go back to the Linkite Tree.



___________________________________________

 Linkite Tree

       A cutscene where you revive the Linkite Tree will occur, then Aska
will come and return to Luna. So now the only thing remaining is the pact
with Luna. Head back for the Tower of Mana.

Make sure not to use any light spell in this fight. Colette is a very bad
choice for this fight, so pick anyone else instead of her. Genis would be
a great choice. Take down Aska first, then take down Luna.

       You'll receive a Topaz after the fight, then Kratos will join the
party while Sheena leaves for a moment. After the nice anime cutscene,
you'll end up at Iselia Ranch.

Items: Rune Helm         Rune Staff      Enemies: Whip Master
           Lovely Mittens   Rune Robe                      Spearman

           Hairpin                Rune Guard
           War Hammer


       Save your game, then enter the ranch. There is a chest on the left
with Rune Helm. Head for the stairway at the right to get inside. Change the
Sorcerer's Ring once inside the ranch. It can now release some Mana power.
Go straight and after the cutscene, you'll have to form 2 teams. Your team,
Lloyd's, is the reactor team. Choose the 3 best characters to come along
with you, because you are going to face the boss with that team! You won't
even use the rescue team, so it doesn't matter if the 2 teams are not well
balanced. Just take the 3 best characters along with Lloyd. I recommend
Raine, Kratos and Presea or Regal or Zelos. Don't bring Genis or Colette
along or you're going to have problems during the boss battle.

       Once your teams are settled, get the chest in this room containing
Lovely Mittens. It is hidden by the bottom wall, so look carefully. Then if
you head up, you can go left for 3 chests (Solar Spinner, Cor Leonis,
Muramasa) and right for 2 other chests (Ether Sword, Rune Staff). Then go
back in the room where you formed the teams, and look at the left for a
closed door. To open it, shoot the two small pillars each side of the door
with the mana power. Go through the door at the end of the corridor to
find Chocolat. You'll fight some easy enemies here.

       Then go downstairs and through the door at the right. At the end of
the corridor is a chest with Rune Robe. Then go up the stairs at the left and
head left. Open the door here using the mana power, then get the 3 chests in
this room (Aqua Greaves, Rune Mail, Rune Shield). Now from the stairs, go in
the path going straight for a room with a closed door. Open it with mana, and
you'll be in a room with 3 other chests (Rune Gauntlet, Hairpin, Rune Guard).
Then, from the stairs, head for the path at the right. Then go south for a
door. Open it with mana, and get the 2 chests (Rune Cloak, Rune Circlet). Now
go north downstairs, then south for a save point. Go through the door at the
right of the save point for a chest with War Hammer. Fight the enemy in this
room to get a Memory Gem.

       Go back to the save point, and from there, head north for a door, open
it with mana, and go through. Get in the warp at the end of the hallway.

This guy is pretty tough. Make sure you take down the 2 small enemies before
attacking him, they make a lot of damage. I used mainly physical attacks
against him, since the spell casting time was too long and the 2 small
enemies were always in my way.

       After the fight, go back in the warp and return in the room at
the right of the save point. Shoot mana on the small pillar and get on
the elevator to go back up. Then exit the ranch. After the cutscene,
switch to Disc 2.

 Iselia - The Village of Oracles
---------------------------------


       After the cutscene, head for the school. There'll be another
cutscene here. Then, go to Genis' house to find Raine. Talk to her, then head
for the south exit of the village. Colette will join you and you'll be at
Dirk's House.



___________________________________________

 Dirk's House
--------------


       Talk to Dirk, then Kratos will leave while Sheen returns. Talk to all
the characters, then talk to Colette on the veranda. Also, if you haven't
gotten it already, the Wonder Chef is next to Lloyd's bed. Now go back to
Tethe'Alla and stop by Altessa's House.




---------------------------------o Tethe'Alla o-------------------------------




___________________________________________

 Altessa's House
-----------------


       Watch the cutscene. You can also get a story event with Presea if you
examine the red exsphere on the table. You'll go to the Toize Mine and need
to go in the area with the waterfall at the end. Now head for Sybak.



___________________________________________

 Sybak - The University Town

(third visit)


       Go to the west part of the town and talk to the man next to the dog
for a story event with Presea. Then, enter the library in the east part of
the town. After the cutscene, head for Meltokio.



___________________________________________

 Meltokio - The Imperial City
------------------------------
(third visit)


       Enter the city by the sewers and you'll catch Vharley talking about
poisoning the king under the Pope's orders. Then head out of the sewers and
go to the church. Enter the door on the left wall to arrive in the Pope's
room. Colette will receive the title Spiritua Reborn. After the cutscene in
the king's bedroom, go down the stairs at the right and enter the room at
the right. You'll learn that you must find Zircon and Mana Leaf Herb, at
Lezareno Company and Heimdall. Talk to the princess Hilda at the entrance
of the castle to get the King's Letter, a permission to enter Heimdall, the
village of the elves, located in Ymir Forest.

       Also, in the rich part of the city, enter the house at the end of
the street and talk to the lady inside to get the end of Presea's story
event (if you talked to the man in Sybak first). Now we'll start by going
to Lezareno Company to get the Zircon first, since it's easier.



___________________________________________

 Altamira - The Seaside Paradise

(third visit)


       Go to Lezareno Company and talk to the president in the president's

back to Mizuho to fight him. You'll also learn that the Zircon is at Sybak,
so go back there.



___________________________________________

 Sybak - The University Town
-----------------------------
(fourth visit)


       Go to the Academy. Go in the corridor at the left and enter the first
room for a chest containing the Zircon. Now that you have the Zircon, it's
time to get the Mana Leaf Herb, at Heimdall. Head for Ymir Forest, south of
the Tower of Salvation.

Items: Resist Ring         Enemies: Baby Boar
            Solar Guard                         Boar

                                                         Dodo


       As you enter Ymir Forest, go straight and look behind the tree here
for a chest with Resist Ring. Then change the function of the Sorcerer's
Ring. It can now make sounds to call animals, but only when you are standing
next to a flower. Climb on the stump at the right and use the Sorcerer's
Ring.

       Now go on the footbridge at the right and go south for a chest. Get on
the stump there and make a sound to call a boar. Then open the chest for
Solar Guard. Now go north from this chest and look behind the next tree for a
chest with Gladius. Go on the footbridge at the left and go north. Then, go
on the first footbridge you see on your left. There is a stump here. Get on
it and make a sound to call up a boar, which will make a crack in the big
boulder on your left.

       Then, go back to the previous screen and go on the footbridge at the
right. Continue right until you arrive in front of a tree with a blue thing
in the branches. There is a chest behind the tree here too, containing
Crystal Shell. Now go back left and climb up the large tree root to reach
the footbridge above. From there, go straight, left, down the root, left, up
the root, left, south, left and finally, down the root. Go left for a chest
behind the tree with Maid's Hairband. Then save your game and go talk to the
little boy at the end of the footbridge north from the save point. He'll let
you through the village if you bring him a Ymir Fruit.

       So, go back to the tree where Lloyd saw something blue in the branches
and go on the stump there. Make a sound to call up a boar, which will make
the blue object fall from the tree. Pick up the Blue Seed. Go back to the
entrance where the pedestal to change the Sorcerer's Ring is and at the left,
plant the blue seed next to the pink flower. Blue flowers will appear on the
water-lilies. Now go up the root at the left of the entrance and then north
to the next screen. Go down the root there, then go left and jump on the
water-lily. Make a sound with the Sorcerer's Ring and a fish will bring a
chest on the shore near the save point. Go open that chest to find the
White Seed.

       Now go back to the entrance and plant the White Seed next to the blue
flower. White flowers will appear on the tree branches around the forest. Go
to the right of the entrance, up the large tree root. Jump on the tree branch
here and make a sound. A bird will bring you to another branch. On this
branch is a large crate. Push it down into the water. Go back using the bird
and find the footbridge where the crate is. Cross it to arrive to the tree
where the Ymir Fruit is. Climb on the stump and make a sound to call up a
boar. It'll make the Ymir Fruit fall, but in the water.

       From where you are right now, head left, then up the root, left again,
and jump on the branch here. Call up a bird to bring you to another area. Go
right and climb on the stump there. Call a boar to crush the boulder (if you
called the boar on the other side too). If the boulder doesn't break, return
to the other side of the boulder to crush it on this side too.

       Now, from the tree where you found the blue seed, go a bit left, then
north. Go on the stump here and call a boar. A bug will fall in the water,
and the big fish will start eating it. Then, from the tree where the blue
seed was, go on the footbridge at the north and jump on the water-lily here.
Call up a fish and it'll move the Ymir Fruit somewhere else (if you gave the
big fish a bug to eat).

       Now find the tree where the Ymir Fruit is nearby and climb on the
stump there. Call up a boar and bugs will fall in the water, creating a wave
that will make the Ymir Fruit move south. Now go near the place where the
Fruit now is, there should be a water-lily nearby. Jump on it and call the
fish, which will move the Fruit west.

       Now go on the footbridge where the 2 big fish are. Jump on the water-
lily here, and wait for the fish at the left to go away before calling the
fish. As soon as the big fish's (...) bubble disappears, call the fish and
it should be able to move the Fruit without being caught by the big fish.
If the big fish eats the Fruit, you'll have to start back. If you moved the
boulder out of the way, the small fish will bring the fruit near the
entrance. If not, crush the boulder first (go back up 3 paragraphs).

       Now, go to the water-lily at the left of the entrance and call the
fish a last time. It'll bring the fruit near the pedestal to change the
Sorcerer's Ring. Go pick up the fruit and bring it back to the boy. He'll
give you a Metal Sphere and will let you through the village.

       There are 2 dogs for Colette in this village, one at the end of a

elder's house's balcony. There are also some good weapons at the
customizable weapon shop.

       Go to the west part of the village at the left of the inn and enter
the house at the end of the village. Talk to the elder and you'll receive the
Elf Elder's Staff, which will grant you access to Latheon Gorge, where the
Mana Leaf Herb is located.

       Also, enter the room at the right in the elder's house and examine the
painting there to find the Wonder Chef (Cream Stew). Then go back to the
field, as there's nothing more to do here for the moment.

Now we're heading for Latheon Gorge, to find the Mana Leaf Herb. Latheon
Gorge is located southeast from Ymir Forest, at the bottom of a mountain.
There is also a chest containing Elven Boots at the right of Latheon Gorge's
entrance, on a piece of land accessible only with the Rheairds.

If you wish, you can also head back for Mizuho before going to Latheon Gorge,
so that Sheena can fight Kuchinawa to get Corrine's Bell back.

Sorcerer's Ring pedestal. Change its function. Now, it can transport you in
a bubble when standing in front of one of these flowers blowing air.

       Go north from the Sorcerer's Ring pedestal for a chest containing
Rare Pellets. Then, go up the slope at the left and stand in front of the
blowing flower. Just before the flower blows some air, get in the bubble to
be transported in the air to the other side. There, go up the slope at the
right to find a Kirima Tree. Take some Kirima, then go back down the slope
and give the withered flower some Kirima to revive it. Then stand in front
of it and get in the bubble. It'll transport you to the other side. Go east
and cross the bridge to the next screen.

       From the bridge, follow the dirt path to the end to find a chest
containing Ex Gem Lv 3. Then, go up the slope at the left and go left for
another chest containing Ex Gem Lv 3 also. Now, if you have gotten the
Nebilim Key from Flanoir, go south and down the slope at the left for a
black chest. Open it with the key to get Presea's darkness weapon, Diablos.

       Then, go up the slope at the right of the flower. Take some Kirima
from the tree, and go down the other slope to find a withered flower. Give
it some Kirima to heal it. Then go back to the previous flower. Stand in
front of it and go in the bubble to get blown away. The flower you just
healed will blow you to the other side. Then go up the slope to find an
Amango Tree. Take some, then go up the slope at the right to the next screen.

       Go straight, then left for a chest containing Ex Gem Lv 4. Then give
some Kirima to the withered flower to revive it. Stand in front of the big
purple flower and get in the bubble to be transported to a small isle. Give
Kirima to the withered flower here, then stand in front of that flower and
go in the bubble to get blown away behind the waterfall. Go left for a chest
containing Star Cap. Then, go right and use the flower there to go back to
the small isle. Once there, stand in front of the other flower to get blown
to the other side. There's a chest here containing Rare Shield.

       Get in the bubble in front of the big purple flower here to return
near where the black chest was. Go back up the mountain to where you were
just before going to the small isle. This time, go up the slope at the
right and revive the withered flower here with Kirima. Stand in front of
it then and have it transport you up to the mountain. Go left for a chest
with Flare Greaves. Then go right for another chest with Toroid. Now, go
up the slope here and revive the withered flower with Kirima. Then go back
down to the flower at the left and have it transport you to the other side.
Stand in front of the big purple flower here and get in the bubble to get
blown to the next section.

       In this area are 2 withered flowers on the cliff at the left. Go
up the slope to go on that cliff and revive the flower at the left. Then
have it transport you to a cliff with a chest containing Ex Gem Lv 4. Then
you'll be back at the entrance, so go back up all the way to the area you
were just before. This time, have the lone flower transport you to the
other side with 2 flowers. Give some Amango to the flower at the right to
kill it. Then go in front of the flower at the left and have it transport
you to the other side. Here, revive the withered flower at the right. Then
go back up the slope to the cliff at the right, and give Amango to the
flower there to kill it. Then go back on the cliff at the left and have the
flower at the right transport you to the other side. Go up the slope there
and revive the flower here with Kirima. Then go up the other slope at the
right and have the flower there transport you to the next section.

       There is a flower here too, so have it transport you over the pit.
Then go up the slope at the right and use the big purple flower to reach
the other side. There's a flower here too, so have it blow you to cross
over the pit (If you fall down here, it's because you forgot to revive
a flower below). On the other side, revive the withered flower with Kirima,
then stand in front of the other flower to have it transport you over the
pit. Then, revive the withered flower here too.

       Enter the cave and if you're ready, you can fight the fake chest
here for an Elixir. Use magic against him. Then go up the slope and defeat
the enemy here for a Memory Gem. Go up the slope at the right, then go
left and up the slope for a chest with Draupnir. Go back down the 2 slopes,
then go left and then south to end up back outside. Revive the flower here
with Kirima. Then have it transport you to the other cliff. Have the big
purple flower here transport you to another cliff. Have the flower here
too transport you up to the cliff above. Finally, go up the slope here to
approach the exit.

       Go up the mountain and revive the withered flower there, then go
left, cross the bridge and revive the other withered flower here too. Go
back to the previous flower and get in a bubble to get blown away to the
top of the mountain where a huge boulder will fall down. Then, go left and
enter the storyteller's house. Look in the alcove in the wall behind him
to find the Wonder Chef who'll show you how to make Pescatore. Then talk to
the storyteller. He'll tell you the Mana Leaf Herb is in a cave below.

       Save your game, then go south and right for a chest with Battle Pick.
Then go left and down to the next screen. Go right and use the flower here
to reach the cave. If you made the huge boulder fall, you should be able
to access it. Enter it to find the Mana Leaf Herb, but a monster is guarding it.

This fight is very easy. Have Genis use one of his Lv3 fire spells, like
Eruption or Raging Mist, continuously and Raine heal the party. You could
also have Sheena and use her spell to attach the fire element to Lloyd's
(or anybody else) weapon. This fight shouldn't take too long.

       After the fight, you'll finally get the Mana Leaf Herb. Go back to
talk with the storyteller. Watch the interesting cutscene. Now, you will need
to find a Mana Fragment, found only in Derris-Kharlan. But first, you'll need
to head for the SE Abbey to pick up Zelos' Cruxis Crystal. The SE Abbey is
located on an island southeast of Toize Valley Mine.



___________________________________________

 SE Abbey
----------


       Head inside and go downstairs to find Seles, Zelos' sister. She will
give back the Cruxis Crystal to Zelos. Before continuing, go to Altessa's
House if you want a new title for Genis.



___________________________________________

 Altessa's House
-----------------


       Go inside and talk to Mithos. During the cutscene, Genis will
receive the title Friend. You won't be able to get that title anymore
after going to the Tower of Salvation, so get it now or never. Then
you can head for the Tower of Salvation, in the center of Tethe'Alla.



___________________________________________

 Tower of Salvation
--------------------


       Go up the stairs that will appear to the tower. Once inside, walk
to the warp. Kratos will appear. You'll then fight him, but it doesn't
matter if you beat him or not. You'll then end up in a cell. After the
cutscene, Regal will have opened the door, so head out and examine the
platform to move it to the other side. Welcome to Welgaia, the holy city.

Items: Apocalypse


       Go left for a save point, then upstairs to the warp. Then you'll
take control of Colette. Push the crate on your left, then pull the one
at the right. Go back in the warp. Now you'll be in the town part of
the city, though it doesn't look like one. Enter the building at the
right and talk to the angel to get the Mana Fragment.

       Now enter the other building at the right of the moving walkway
and enter the room at the left for a chest containing Apocalypse, one
of the Devil's Arms. Then, go on the moving walkway to the next section.
Go upstairs to the save point, then go to the giant transporter. Can't
go there, so go back and take the other path to the next section.

       Go up the stairs, and examine the machine behind the third lift.
This will activate the emergency exit. Then, examine the machine behind
the fourth lift to get some information. Now, go downstairs and get on

       Go left and save your game, then head downstairs to the next screen.
If you go left, there's a hard-to-see chest next to the bottom wall. Open it
for an Ex Gem Lv 3. Then, continue left and go south. Head downstairs, then
go south, and right. Go through the door in the wall at the right to end up

       You'll arrive at a door on the right wall. Go through. In the room
there, press the red button to open all green gates. Then open the chest at
the bottom of the room for an Ex Gem Lv 4. Now go back through the gravity
room to the room just before the gravity one. Go south, then right for a
chest at the bottom with Rare Guard.

       Now go back to the stairway leading to the save point at the entrance.
From there, go left, up, then left, up, left again, and downstairs. Go left
and look at the bottom of the room for 2 paths leading to 2 chests. The right
path leads to a chest with Nagazuki, and the left path leads to a chest with
Laser Blade. Then go left and north. Press the blue button in that room
to open all blue gates.

       Once again, go back to the stairs leading to the save point. From
there, go south, then right and through the door there. Then go right and
down for a chest containing Holy Robe. Then go south, left, downstairs, left,
north and left again, then north for a chest with Dragon Fang. Go back, then
south and left for another chest with Ex Gem Lv 3. Then go north and upstairs
to leave that place.

       Go back to the gravity room. This time, follow these directions:

Right, Down, Left, Up, Left, Up, Left, Down, Left, Up, Left,
Down, Left, Down, Right, Up, Right.

       This will lead you to a lift. Go up to arrive in another gravity room.
In this one, go:

Down, Right, Up, Left, Up, Right, Up, Right, Down, Right,
Down, Right, Up, Left, Up.

       You'll arrive at a door. Go through. Now follow the corridor until you
come to a fork. Go right for a chest containing Energy Tablets. Go back to
the fork and go down, then left. Go through the door here to arrive back in
the gravity room. Follow these directions:

Left, Up, Left, Down, Right, Down, Right, Down, Right, Up,

Left, Up, Left, Down, Left, Up, Right, Down, Right, Up, Right.

       Go through the door in the wall at the right, then head right for a
chest containing Holy Circlet. Pick up the Elevator Key in this room
before leaving. Go back to the stairway at the beginning that leads to the
save point. From there, go left, then north and go through the door at the
right. Head right to find the elevator. Put the Key in, and use it to go
down.

       Go left and look near the machine to find a chest containing Ex Gem
Lv 2. Then go up, left and go downstairs. Enter the warp.

You'll face Yggdrasill. Just stay alive until the fight is interrupted.
 Then leave the Tower and you'll be at Altessa's House.



___________________________________________

 Altessa's House

       Watch the cutscene, then you'll have to fight Angel Swordian and Angel
Commander. Defeat them, then talk to Yuan. Now head for Flanoir.

 Flanoir - The Snowy City
--------------------------
(third visit)


       Head for the doctor's house. After the cutscene, characters will come
to your room and knock on the door. The characters that will come will depend
on your relationship with them. If you accept to go out with Colette, you will
receive Snow Hare. If you choose to go outside with Zelos, you will receive
a Cruxis Crystal. Also, if you decline the 3 characters' offer to go outside,
Kratos will come if you have a good relationship with him and will give you
Kratos' Locket. He will also replace Zelos in your party later on if you
choose to decline the 3 other characters' offer.

       If you've collected all the Devil's Arms so far, talk to Abyssion in
front of the house at the entrance and you'll learn where the last darkness
weapon is. Simply go to Hakonesia Peak and talk to Koton to receive Raine's
darkness weapon, Heart of Chaos. After you're done with everything, head
back for the Tower of Salvation.

            Star Helm


       Yuan will help you get inside the tower. You can then go to the right
to buy some potions and gels and when you're done, head into the warp. There
will be an easy boss battle against Zelos or the Gatekeeper, then save your
game and advance to a fork where the path splits in four. Go straight and use
the Sorcerer's Ring to shoot some fire to burn the root that's in the way.
Continue through the door at the end to arrive in a room with a broken bridge.

       Jump over the gap to land on the bridge. It'll bend down. Open the
chest down there for Diamond Shell. Go back up using the stairs at the back,
then jump on the bridge again, but this time, don't get off it after it bends,
climb it up instead. Jump off it once on the other side. Go through the door
at the right, and follow the path south until you come to a fork.

       Use the Sorcerer's Ring on the roots at the right until they disappear.
Then go into the room for 3 chests with Southern Cross, Hanuman's Staff and
Ogre Ax. Go back to the fork and go north, then left. Burn the roots in your
way, then continue left to stairs. Climb them up, and go left to open the
door. Go back and go up the other stairs. Burn the roots in your way there,
and at the end of the pathway, go down and then left for a chest with Heavenly
Robe. Then go right and burn the roots there to find another chest with Energy
Tablets in the other pathway. Then go south and right. Burn the root here, and
continue to a room with 2 chests containing Star Mail and Ex Gem Lv 4. Then,
go into the path at the left and go through the passage to the next room.

       Get the chest here for Phoenix Cloak. Then, use the Sorcerer's Ring 3
times on the roots hanging from the ceiling to make the rocks fall down below.
Go back all the way to the room where the broken bridge is (using the door 
that you unlocked previously and going right). Now the rocks are keeping the 
brige up, so jump on it and climb it up to the top, then jump off to land on 
the other side. Look at the left of the stairs for a chest containing 
Star Guard. Then go upstairs and get into the warp.

       Go downstairs for a fight with 2 Angel Swordians. Then, there'll be
another save point. Save, then go left for a chest with Shaman Dress. You
can also use the shop machine to buy supplies. Then go right for a chest
with Ex Gem Lv 3. Get in the warp to the next save point. Go down the stairs,
then go left. The tree is blocking your way. Go right after the cutscene,
and south for a chest on the left with Star Helm. Continue south for another
save point. Then, go left, north, right, down and left. Get into the warp
here and you'll fight 2 Evil Orchids.

       After the cutscene, go right, then down and right as soon as you can
for a chest at the right with Star Shield. Then go up and left and get into
the warp to the next area. Go downstairs to the door for another cutscene.
Then, you'll be in one of those huge mazes like areas once again. Find the
warp at the bottom, but before, there are 3 chests to get here. One with Star
Circlet west from the save point, one with Star Gauntlet west from the warp
and one with Ex gem Lv 3 north from the warp. Then go into that warp to the
next area. Here, continue to the fork. Go left for a chest with Ex Gem Lv2,
and right for a chest with Star Bracelet. Then go straight for a cutscene.

       After the cutscene, investigate the area to find 2 chests containing
Spirit Bottle and Ex Gem Lv 4. Then, go into the warp. Finally, go right
and save your game. Then examine the sword in the wall for a cutscene.

       Follow the path to the right until you see a small animal. He'll hide
himself in a stump. Don't mind him for the moment, we'll get the treasure
chests before. Take the path going right, then go south all the way for a
chest containing Stardust. Then go back and take the path going up at the
left for a chest with Crystal Dagger. Now go to the stump where the animal
hid. Use the Sorcerer's Ring to fire on the stump. The small animal will
come out. Follow it to the next screen.

       Shoot the stump on your left to make the animal come out again. Then
go left to find a chest with Acalanatha. Go back to the stump and take the
path going right. Continue right and go up for a chest with Angel's Tear.
Then, continue right again to find the small animal. Follow it. Then go in
the second path going south and shoot the stump on your right. Then go down
and you will see the Gold Dragon. Go left from him and fight the nearby enemy
for a Memory Gem. Then go north and you'll come to a fork.

       Go left, and then up for a chest with Ex Gem Lv 4. Then go down for
another chest with Mana Protector. Go back to the fork and go north. Then
go right in the path with the tree trunk above. Go up again for a chest with
Ex Gem Lv 3. Then continue right and go down for a save point. Unlock it and
save your game. Go in the path going right for a chest with Ex Gem Lv 4. Then
go in the path going south and you'll come to a fork. Take the path going
right to find 2 chests at the end, with Warlock Garb and Shield Ring. Then
go back to the fork and take the left path. Shoot the stump at the end, then
continue to the right and go north. Take the second path going right. Shoot
the stump here too and continue right. You'll come to Kratos.

       You'll fight Kratos with Lloyd only, but to make things fair, Kratos
is pretty weak. Use your best techniques to take him down quickly.

you explore a little, with Magical Ribbon and Ex Gem Lv 4. The path going
right will lead you to 2 others chest with Ex Gem Lv 3 and Ex Gem Lv 4.
After getting all those chests, head for the warp at the end of the area.
You'll find Colette. Go in the next warp to end up in Welgaia.

       Go south to the city part of Welgaia. There'll be a cutscene and you'll

against The Fugitive. Take him down, then go into the warp south from there.
Move the platform to Presea and Regal's cell. There'll be another cutscene and
you will receive Chipped Dagger. Then examine the blood on the floor for a
fight against The Judged. After all this, go back to the area with the shop

       With the Derris Emblem, new side quests are now available. You can do
them right now by going back to the field, or continue to the last level. If
you want to do the side quests before finishing the game, leave the Tower and
check the side quests section for various side quests. The major one would be

right. Walk past the stairs and fight the angel behind the stairway. A chest
will appear on the balcony above the room after the battle. Don't worry about
it now, you'll get it later on. Enter the room on your right and open the
chest inside for Energy Tablets. Now go back to the previous room and go up
the stairs. At the top, enter the room on the right. Look behind the sofa
inside for a chest containing Prism Guard.

       Return to the main room, the one with the save point and warp. This
time, go left and go through the second door on the left wall. You should be
in a long stairway. Start by going left to find a chest with Blue Shield. Then
go right and start climbing the stairs. You'll see doors on your way. Go
through the fourth door to enter a room with a chest containing Elixir. Then
continue to climb up the stairs and go through the next door. Defeat the angel
in this room and a chest will appear. Open it for the Past Stone.

       Go back to the stairs and climb them up. Enter the last door at the
top. You should now be on the roof of the castle. Go right and look behind the
wall for a chest containing Elemental Guard hidden behind. Then go right and
look behind the other wall for another hidden chest with Ninja Sword. Then go
through the door here. You should be in another long stairway similar to the
previous one. Go left, down the stairs, and go through the first door you see.
Open the chest inside the room for Spirit Bottle. There is another chest with
Mortality Cloak behind the sofa. Then, go back to the stairway and go down to
the very bottom for a chest with Ex Gem Lv 4. Go back to the previous door and
go through it.

       You should now be on a passageway above the main room with 2 doors on
each side. Go left and go through the first door on the left wall. In the
next room, go left and through the door to find a chest with Shield Ring. Then
go back to the previous room and go up the stairs in this room. Climb them up
to the very top of the room. The second set of stairs is hard to see because
of the way the camera is placed, but just go straight up and you'll find them.
Then go up the stairs at the left and enter the room there for a chest with
Demon's Seal.

       Go back and go up the stairs on your right this time. Go through the
door here to end up in another passage above the main room. Go all the way to
the end of that passage and enter the door at the end. Here should be the
chest from the beginning. Open it to get the Future Stone. Now, go back to
the main room. The Past Stone will place itself into the blue square on the
floor and activate a warp along with making some colored blocks appear. Go to
the right and the Future Stone will go into the blue square. New blocks will
appear.

       Go to the black circle with blue symbols on at the left. It acts as a
warp. Push the black block into it to warp it to the top of the castle. Then,
push it down and right to make it fall into the gap. Two more blocks and it'll
make a bridge. Go back and warp the dark blue block. Push it over the black
block into the wall. Go back and take the red block this time. Push it over
the 2 other blocks to create a bridge over the gap. Now, go back and take the
purple block. Push it over the block bridge and into the hole in the floor.

       Repeat the same exact thing with the other side. Bring the blocks into
the warp at the right and make a bridge. Put them in the following order;
yellow, green and light blue. Then push the white block into the hole. You
can now get the chest in the center. Open it for Sacred Stone. Now if you're
ready for the final fight, go back to the main room and go up the stairs in
the center. Defeat the Dark Dragon to receive Vinheim Key. Then open the gate
and go through. Examine the floor to find a warp.

Mithos has two forms. His first form is resistant to light, so don't take
Colette in your party. I would suggest a party consisting of Lloyd, Raine,
Kratos/Zelos and Presea. A good level to be around for this fight would be
about Lv75. Make sure you are full of Panacea and Miracle Bottles as Mithos
will often cast spells that will affect your status. Or you can simply use
Raine's recovery spell. If you brought the max of Life Bottles and various
gels in the battle, you should do fine. Also, try to have Raine equipped
with accessories or Ex Skills that decrease the spell casting time. She will
be able to cast healing spells right away. Use the best techniques of each
characters and the fight shouldn't be too hard. It really isn't the hardest
fight in the game.




       Watch the ending and enjoy. Save your game in a different slot after
the credits and load that game back on the title screen. With the Grades you
earned in battles, you'll be able to buy some extras for your second play
through. There are also a lot of side quests you can still do on your first
game. Just load back the file from before the fight with Mithos and exit the
Tower. Check the side quests section just below for what you can still do
before replaying the game.







SideQuests




___________________________________________

             Devil's Arms
-------------------------------------------


To start the Devil's Arms side quest, you will first need to find Colette's
darkness weapon, Evil Eye, in Toize Valley Mine. Then, you will need to
talk to Abyssion, the man leaning in front of the house at the entrance of
Flanoir, later in the game. He will then ask you to find all the darkness
weapons and return them to the Temple of Darkness.



Colette - Evil Eye - Toize Valley Mine
---------------------------------------
Examine the pieces of the crushed spinning stone to find this weapon. It
should be in the area at the bottom where the boulder crushed it.



Lloyd - Nebilim - Flanoir

Talk to Abyssion in Flanoir after getting Evil Eye. He will give you the
second darkness weapon.



Zelos/Kratos - Fafnir - Gaoracchia Forest
------------------------------------------
After talking to Abyssion in Flanoir, he should have given you the Nebilim
Key, return to Gaoracchia Forest and open the black chest west from the
save point to find the third darkness weapon.



Sheena - Gates of Hell - Temple of Earth
-----------------------------------------
Go to Altessa's House first, and talk to the green gnome there. He will then
go back to the Temple Earth. Go there yourself and head through the door at
the left of the bridge near the entrance of the temple and go right. Talk to
the group of gnomes there. They'll leave after the green gnome arrives. So
now that they're gone, you can pass and open the black chest on your right.
Inside the chest is the fourth darkness weapon.



Genis - Disaster - Altamira
----------------------------
After going to the Remote Island Human Ranch, go back to Altamira and sleep
at the inn. The receptionist will ask you if you want to go out at night or
in the morning. Choose to go out at night. Take the rail boat to the Casino
and talk to the blond guy on the bridge at the right of the casino. He will
ask you to buy something from him. Buy it to get the fifth darkness weapon.



Zelos/Kratos - Soul Eater - Triet
----------------------------------
Go to the market area of Triet later in the game after the Remote Island
Human Ranch and talk to the guy near the item shop. He will talk about a
giant worm in the desert. Then head for the north part of the village where
the oasis is and talk to the man next to the dog. He will talk about a
blue aura in the desert. Now head back to the field and walk northwest from
Triet. You will see a blue aura that looks like a skit point. Head into it
to start a fight against the giant worm. Defeat it to receive the sixth
darkness weapon.



Presea - Diablos - Latheon Gorge
---------------------------------
After the first bridge near the entrance, head west, up the slope, and go
left, down the slope, to find a black chest. Open it for the seventh
darkness weapon.



Regal - Apocalypse - Welgaia
-----------------------------
In the city part of Welgaia where you got the Mana Fragment, enter the
building at the left of the one where the fragment was, and enter the
room at the left for a black chest containing the eighth darkness weapon.



Raine - Heart of Chaos - Hakonesia Peak
----------------------------------------
After getting all the other darkness weapons, go back to Flanoir and talk
to Abyssion another time. Then, go to Hakonesia Peak and talk to Koton,
the old man. He will trade you the final darkness weapon.



Once you have acquired all the darkness weapons, head for the Temple of
Darkness and find Abyssion in the boss room. You must be around Lv75 to
beat him. Use Lloyd, Colette, Raine and a character or your choice. This
is the hardest boss in the game, so don't be afraid of using all your
best items.

Once you defeat him, the Devil's Arms will start getting more powerful
as you kill enemies. The more enemies you kill with them, the stronger
they will get. These are the best weapons in the game, so make them
strong.

Game Basics





Grade Shop

If you've always wonder what the grade you get in battles is for, well, it's for
the grade shop, only available when starting a new game after finishing the game
once. After finishing the game, you'll be ask to save your game. Do so, and load
that file back on the title screen. You'll automatically enter the Grade Shop,
where
you can buy various extras for your next play through the game. These extras are
bought with the grade you received in battles during your previous play through.
The best ones sell for the most, unfortunately.

If you feel like you don't have enough grade to buy everything you would have
wanted to buy, load back (if you didn't overwrite it) your file from before the
fight
with the final boss and go collect some more grade until you have enough (you
can
check how many you have by talking to the explorer Katz). Then simply re beat
the
final boss to access the grade shop again. To increase your grade,  I suggest
fighting
the low level enemies around Iselia or in Iselia Forest. They give
approximatively
1.25 grade at the end of a fight. It's not much, but the fights are quickly
over so you
can get a decent amount of grade under 1 hour. The conditions to receive more
grade
are to finish the fights quickly, receive little damage, and do a lot of damage
to the enemy.
