Thank you for choosing my Atelier Iris 2 Guide!  This guide is meant to take 
an in-depth look at Atelier Iris 2, walking you step by step through each 
event as the game progresses.  There will be no spoilers of the events, I will 
just say "watch a scene," and whatnot.  I like to keep my guides as spoiler 
free as possible so that my readers can enjoy the stroy at their own pace.

I highly suggest looking over the basics section before you begin.  There's a 
lot of things to learn about Atelier Iris 2. The game has many new features 
compared with other RPGs, and it is best to learn them before you begin.

Also note: ~THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT~ Your game will glitch up and you will be 
unable to continue if you do not create the item "Flay Hammer" before Chapter 
20.  So make sure that you create this item as soon as possible.  It is 
important to avoid this glitch!

Also, as always, if you have read my guides in the past, I thank you for 
choosing my writing again.  If this is your first time reading one of my 
guides, Thank you, and I hope you enjoy my work.

=============================
Controls:
=============================

This section is for the controls of this game.

The directional buttons move your characters through the screens, and the up 
and down buttons move the cursor on the menu screen.

----------------------------------------------------------------
X Button   | The "Confirm" button, allows you to enter areas.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Triangle   | Opens the menu screen, and on the menu screen changes the view.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Square     | Allows you to scroll quickly, and allows for Element Extraction.
----------------------------------------------------------------
O Button   | This button "cancels" commands, and allows you to Jump.
----------------------------------------------------------------
L1/R1/R2/L2|  These buttons have no effect.
----------------------------------------------------------------

=============================
The 'Switch' Command:
=============================

After a certain point of the game, you gain the ability to switch characters.  
You can only switch characters from a Save Point, using the 'Switch' command 
found at the top area. Only one of the two characters you can control can use 
Alchemy abilities, so you'll find yourself switching back and forth quite 
often when obtaining new items and going to new areas.

It is reccommended that you switch characters after each major area, so that 
you see if you can create any new items.  

=============================
Exploring the World and Field Maps:
=============================

The World Map of Atelier Iris 2 is a very basic thing.  There are no 
encounters on the world map.  Just move the cursor that looks like your 
character over where you want to go and you'll move there.  Press the X button 
again and you'll enter the area.

Note that areas of the World Map are not opened up until you have learned 
about them, have learned your next destination, or have left an area through a 
specific exit.

The "Field" screen is the definition of any screen, dungeon, town, or other 
area that is not the World Map.

Certain items can be destroyed on the field map.  When you see a large rock, 
an out of place plant, or a strange crystal, press the Square button to 
destroy it to obtain 'Elements.'  These items can usually be "Harvested" once 
you have created the appropriate item through Alchemy.  These items include 
Wonder Grow, Yugdore Water, Fairy Tea, or the Flay Hammer.

In the field you have the ability to "Jump" with the Circle button.  This 
ability allows you to reach surprisingly high levels that you could not walk 
to normally.  Try jumping onto anything you see to reach new areas.

In the field screen you'll randomly see a little "X" button above your head.  
This is the search button, and when you press it, you'll either get a message 
about the surrounding area, or you'll Open a Chest in your vicinity. Also, 
when you approach a NPC (Non-Playable Character) you can "speak" to them to 
obtain information about your surroundings or where to go.

Also in the Field screen you'll encounter something called the "Camp Circle."  
This is also known as a "Save Point."  These Save Points will completely 
recover your HP, but if you are in a dungeon, they will also cause every enemy 
in the area to regenerate.

As the game progresses, you gain more and more abilities through your Camp 
Circle. Also at the Save Point, you can save your game, load your game, and 
switch characters after a certain point.

=============================
The Encounter Gauge:
=============================

In dungeon areas, you will find something at the lower right of your screen.  
This color changing object is called the "Encounter Gauge."  Each encounter 
you fight through lowers the gauge slightly.  The gauge goes down different 
sizes differently depending on the area you are in.  Some areas only take 2 
encounters to clear the guage, but others take more than 20 to clear!

You can tell how close to an encounter you are by the color of the guage.  At 
the color Blue, you are not going to get into an encounter, yet when you're at 
Red, and encounter will ensue any moment!  Green and Yellow are the middle 
portions.

Blue - Safe
Green - Closer
Yellow - Encounters Possible
Red - Encounter Anytime

=============================
Elements and Elemental Extraction:
=============================

Elements are a very important part of Atelier Iris 2.  There are many 
different types of Elements in this game, and every enemy and destructable 
item in the game will give you Elements.  When you destroy an item in the 
field, be it a rock, a crystal, a stone, a plant, a bush, or any other type of 
item, you will receive a set number of items.

The Elements are -in the order they are on the menu screen-
Fire, Air, Water, Lightning, Dark
Stone, Wood, Life, Illusion, Sound
Aroma, Poison, Metal

Elements are used in this game to create items through Alchemy that have 
been "Initialized."  These items are also called "Mana Items."  These items 
can not be created through the use of Mana until you have created them with 
items originally, but once you have, you can go into your Items Menu at any 
time, select Mana Item, and use "Mana Synthesis" to create the item.

If you don't have enough elements to create the item through Synthesis, the 
game gives you an error.  You will need to extract some more from enemies (by 
Defeating them with Felt or Viese) or by an item that gives you specific 
elements.

There are crystal types for every Element.  The only purpose of 
these "Crystals" is to be destroyed and give you elements, so do so whenever 
you see one!  You can tell what type of Crystallized element it is by the 
color of the crystal.  Note that Sound and Air elements look somewhat alike, 
as they are both a light green-blue color, except that Sound is a bit darker 
than Air.  At the start of the game, you'll only find a few base elements, 
probably Stone, Fire, Wood, Aroma, and Water often.  But as the game 
progresses you'll begin to find Air (rare early on), Dark, and Lightning more 
and more often.

Important: LIFE ELEMENTS ARE ALWAYS RARE.  There is a limited number of Life 
Balls out there, and no Life Crystals. There are certain enemies very late in 
the game that you can get the elements from, but encountering them can be a 
pain.  Save your Life Elements when you have them!

=============================
The Battle System:
=============================

Atelier Iris 2 runs on a fast paced, yet a limited battle system somewhat like 
the system of the original Grandia.
There is a bar on the top left of the screen.  This is the time bar.  When you 
reach the far right side of this bar, your character gets a turn.  But also, 
when the enemy reaches the far side of this bar, they get a turn as well.

Thegauge on the far right of the screen is called the Skill gauge.  The higher 
this gauge gets, the more you will be able to use skills.  You need to balance 
the usage of this gauge, as everyone has to share it.  This gauge resets to 1 
after every battle ends.

There are commands that can help delay the enemy turns, but that will be 
described below.

The commands on your Battle screen that looks like this:

Charge Attack
Break Attack
Item
Skills
Mana Synthesis (Felt and Viese ONLY)
Defend
Run
Change (Only after a certain event)

A "Charge Attack" is your basic attack ability.  When you use this ability, 
that gauge in the upper right corner of the screen that starts at level 1 (you 
can tell what level it is by the large number by it) starts to rise.  This 
Gauge, the Skill Gauge, allows you to use skills.  Therefore, when you use a 
Charge Attack you can use Skills more often.

A "Break Attack" is another type of attack.  When you watch the bar on the top 
of the screen after a break attack, the enemy you targeted will be pushed 
back, and therefore, his attack will be delated.  Note that when you use a 
Break Attack, the Skill Guage will not raise.  You need to learn how to 
balance your Break Attacks and your Charge Attacks to be successful in this 
game.

Using the Item Command will allow you to use any current Mana Items you have 
in your inventory.  Note however that this is limited to Mana Items, and 
nothing else.

The Skills Command is a bit different.  You learn more skills as the game 
progresses, so as the game begins, the command is rather empty. You can not 
use certain skills until your "Skill Gauge" (in the upper right corner) has 
filled past the amount necessary. Basic skills like "Mana Strike" only take 
one level of your gauge to use, but more advanced skills take two or three 
levels to use.

The Mana Synthesis command is a command that only Felt and Viese can use.  
Once a Mana Item has been created through Alchemy, you will have the ability 
to create it in battle instantly and use it. If you run out of elements, 
however, you will be unable to create the item.

The Defend command allows you to take less damage from attacks, and also helps 
you avoid attacks more often.  This is a good command for when you have low HP.

The Run command allows you to flee from battle, but it does not work all the 
time.

The Change command is only used after a certain point of the game.  It allows 
you to change characters in battle instantly. Dead characters can not be 
switched into battle.

Note that if you use Break attacks on a single enemy enough, they'll reach 
that Orange area on the far left of the guage.  This is called the "Break 
Area."  In here, the enemy is "Broken" and they are shocked, unable to move.  
Their gauge will move slowly towards you. If you attack an enemy in this area, 
you will gain bonus points after the battle.

You gain experience, skill points (after a certain point), and Cole (the 
games "Gold") after the battle is complete.  As stated above, you gain more 
than normal if you attack and enemy while in break status, and keep comboing 
it with more and more damage. You also may gain items after the battle, if you 
were lucky enough to win one from the enemy.

                          ^^^ Episode 1: Eden ^^^

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

You are immediately thrust into a battle.  You only control ???, but she is 
strong alone.  Switch to "Break Attack" and constantly hit him back so you 
don't take damage. After this first battle, another immediately starts.  This 
time, you have access to "Skills."  Choose skills, and have your character use 
Force Blast, which will end the battle and begin the game.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                       ~~~ Eden - Alchemic City Noir ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Viese
Key Items: Share Ring, Alchemy 101
Items: Pure Waterx5
Mana Items: None

As the game begins, you gain control of Viese. Head down the screen, and speak 
with Lutanus for another short scene. She gives you the ALCHEMY 101.  This 
item allows you to create the Heal Herb and Fear Bottle through Alchemy. Exit 
the area.

You are automatically brought to the city. You can explore a bit, but there's 
not a lot you can do at this point.  I suggest buying the DOWSING GUIDE from  
Yach for 100 Cole. This item allows you to create the item, Pendulum. There's 
not much else you can afford at this point, so just speak with whoever you 
wish, and enter your house on the northern screen.

After a short scene in your house, head upstairs.  Examine the sink and you'll 
obtain 5 PURE WATERs.  Now, head out of your house.  The exit of the city is 
to the far south.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                           ~~~ Belkhyde Gate ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Viese, Felt
Key Items: None
Items: None
Mana Items: Wood Crystal x2 (+16 Wood), Bush x3 (+10 Water, +10 Wood), Water 
Crystal (+16 Water)

Watch the short scene.  This is your first chance to get some Elemental items. 
There are 2 "Wood Crystals" in this area.  These items give you Mana when you 
destroy them. Your limit for Mana of any given element is 99, unfortunately, 
so it is not worth it going any higher than that, as you are just wasting the 
items.  To destroy these items and get the mana, press the Square Button.

Also note that there are three bushes at the far side of the screen that give 
you 10 Water Mana and 10 Wood Mana when you destroy them. After these are 
clear, you can jump to the upper level and break the Water Crystal for some 
Water Mana.

Note: Elemental items, and normal Mana items as well (as long as they are not 
in chests) regenerate once you leave an area, so if you are in need of a 
specific item, you can keep returning to an area to get it once you've left 
and returned.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                           ~~~ Marmel Forest ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Viese, Felt
Key Items: Wood Gem
Items: Mini-Pendelook, Nue, Magi Grass x2, Magi Grass x2
Mana Items: Wood Crystal x2 (+16 Wood), Aroma Crystal x2 (+16 Aroma), Water 
Crystal x2 (+16 Water), Plant x9 (+4 Wood, +4 Water)

Note: There's some weird translation here.  The place is named Marmel forest 
in-game, but when it appears on the map initially, and in the spoken dialogue, 
it is said as "Malmel Forest."  They are the same location, so don't worry 
about it too much.

Follow the path through the forest, and you'll eventually see a chest to the 
north.  Open it up and you'll receive a MINI-PENDELOOK.  There are two 
little "bags" on the ground to the right of this.  These are Mana items and 
will regenerate when you leave the area.  These contain a NUE, and MAGI GRASS 
x2.

Continue right down the path, and destroy the Wood Crystal for some elements. 
Continue down the path, and you'll encounter quite a few more  Crystalized 
Elements.  These new yellow ones are Aroma elements.  Also, since you can't do 
anything else with the plants, destroy them, and you'll recieve some Wood and 
Water elements for your collection. You should be full, or at least almost 
full on your Wood element collection at this point.  Remember that the cap is 
99.

Continue north up the path until a scene plays. Now, press X by the sword for 
another scene. Continue up the path when you regain control and pick up the 
MAGI GRASS x2 on the ground.  At the intersection, head right, and you'll find 
6 Plants. There's nothing you can do with these now but destroy them for 
elements. Head back to the intersection and take the left fork to reach the 
next screen.

Watch a scene. You receive the WOOD GEM, and you are now allowed to 
synthesize, because you have access to the Wood Mana.  There's nothing else to 
do here, so head back left and exit the screen. Now, head back to the left 
after the scenes, and continue left at the intersection.  Watch another scene. 
Examine the Sword (with the X button) in the ground for another scene. 

Follow the path back left (the Crystals have regenerated if you need the 
Elements still) and exit the Forest. Enter the Eden Temple.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                             ~~~ Eden Temple ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Viese, Felt
Key Items: None
Items: Heal Herb - Synthesis
Mana Items: Stone Crystal x2 (+16 Stone)

Note: You can find two Stone Crystals in the Eden Temple if you take a right 
immediately.  Shatter the crystals for +16 Stone Mana each.

Inside the Eden Temple, head up into the building.  Watch a scene. Now, exit 
the Eden Temple.  Immediately head to the Belkhyde Gate to the south for a 
scene.

After the scenes, you gain control of Viese in Noir.

Controlling Viese, examine the synthesis pot, and out of the three items you 
can probably create at this time, the only one you will be able to do 
successfully is the Heal Herb. Select this item, use a Magi Grass (found in 
Marmel Forest) and a Pure Water (Found in the upstairs sink in your house).  
Only Synthesize one at first, do not waste any more items than necessary.

After a short scene, you'll have created a Heal Herb. You can create Heal 
Herbs anytime from your inventory menu, as long as you have the proper amount 
of Elements to do such.  This is because Viese used a special process 
of "Initialization" on them.  Not every item can become "Initialized," but 
most healing items, and items you will use over and over again can be.  I 
suggest Synthesizing at least a few Heal Herbs from the menu (using the "Mana 
Synthesis" command) at this point, since they only cost a single Wood Element 
to create.  

Exit Viese's house, and watch a short scene.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                             ~~~ The Desert ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Felt
Enemies: Armadillo, Red Puni
Bosses: None
Key Items: None
Items: Gradin Cape, Red Legien x2, Dem Ore x3, Aihie Fungo
Mana Items: Brown Rock x2 (+3 Metal, +5 Stone), White Rock (+3 Metal, +2 
Lightning), Plant x4 (+4 Wood, +4 Water)

You start this Episode off in the middle of a dungeon.  Open the chest just 
below you for a GRADIN CAPE. Equip it immediately, and head left for a scene.  
You are forced into a battle with an Armadillo.  This is one on one, so hit it 
with Break Attacks and your special ability, Mana Strike, to kill it off 
quickly. 

There are a few new things to notice at this point.  See the gauge at the 
lower left hand corner of the screen?  This is your encounter Gauge.  The 
higher this is, the more encounters that there are on the screen.  If this is 
empty, there are no more enemies to kill in the area.  You will also start 
with random encounters at this point.

Continue left into the next area for another short scene. Felt can now use the 
same Mana Synthesis command that Viese was able to use to create the Heal 
Herbs.  But remember, this is only on "Initialized" items. Continue left, and 
Shatter the rock for some elements.  Now, fall down to the lower level by 
going south, and continue south until the path starts heading left.  Pick up 
the RED LEGIEN x2. Continue up to the intersection, picking up the DEM ORE x3, 
and take a right.  There are four plants over here to destroy for Mana.  Head 
back to the intersection, and go left and watch another scene.  When you 
regain control, head south and open the chest for an AIHIE FUNGO.

Continue left down the path until it tilts north.  At the intersection, go 
right and jump (with the O button) up the ledge.  Up here, there are two Rocks 
to destroy for some Elements. Now go back to the intersection and continue 
left until you reach another intersection. Head down here, and pick up the 
MAGI GRASS x2.  Keep heading left until you reach the exit.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                             ~~~ The Oasis ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Felt, Noin
Enemies: Armadillo, Red Puni
Bosses: None
Key Items: None
Items: Red Legien x2, Foul Water
Mana Items: Plant x4 (+4 Wood, +4 Water), Red Rock x2 (+6 Fire, +3 Metal),  
Yellow Rock (+5 Stone, +3 Metal), Barrel (+3 Wood)

Enter the Oasis and watch the scene. You regain control in your tent.  Speak 
with the girl, and try to exit the tent. Noin joins your party.  Exit the Tent.

This is a small area.  The glowing area is a Save Point, which allows you to 
restore your HP and enter the tent, so that you can save your game.  Note that 
every enemy in the level will regernate if you enter the Tent, so be careful 
when using this feature.

Head south and pick up the RED LEGIEN x2. Head over to the right, and press 
the X button by the Barrel to obtain some FOUL WATER. Break the rocks over 
here for some Elements, and head all the way to the northwestern corner of the 
area to exit.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                         ~~~ Tatalia Village ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Felt, Noin
Key Items: None
Items: Ancient Mask, Phoenix Quill, Pure Water, Foul Water, Foul Water, 
Tatalia Cotton, Spoiled Meat
Mana Items: Barrel (+3 Wood), White Rock (+2 Lightning, +3 Metal), Red Rock x2 
(+6 Fire, +3 Metal), Yellow Rock (+5 Stone, +3 Metal), Box (+3 Wood)

Tatalia is a rather large area with no random encounters.  Head into the main 
village, and enter the first tent on the left.  There are two chests in here, 
they contain an ANCIENT MASK and a PHOENIX QUILL. Exit the tent. If you 
examine the well at the center of the town, you'll receive some PURE WATER.

Now, head to the far north side of the town, and examine the two Barrels up 
here, for a FOUL WATER from each barrel.  Speak to the girl in the northern 
corner of town.  Her name is Mitsue. Watch a scene. You probably won't be able 
to afford much from her now, but she will be useful later on.

You'll fine a Yellow Rock in the northwest of the area for a few elements, as 
well as a Barrel behind the tent. There are also two more rocks in the 
southeastern corner of the town. Also in the southeastern corner is a chest 
containing some TATALIA COTTON. Behind the large green tent in the north of 
the town, you can obtain some SPOILED MEAT from the barrel.

After getting these items, enter the large green tent for a scene.  When 
you're ready, exit the town the same way you entered.

Characters: Felt, Noin
Enemies: Salamander, Armadillo, Red Puni
Bosses: None
Key Items: None
Items: None
Mana Items: White Rock (+2 Lightning, +3 Metal), Red Rock (+6 Fire, +3 Metal), 
Brown Rock (+3 Metal, +5 Stone)

This is not the dungeon we are looking for, but rather, a mini-dungeon on the 
way to our dungeon.

Follow the path right until you reach a save point, and a four way 
intersection. Follow the south path all the way down, you'll find two rocks 
for some elemental extraction. This south path leads to an area you will visit 
later called the Great Desert.  It is nice to open up for now, though.

Head back up to the intersection, and take the far right fork.  This fork 
leads you to a Brown Rock, and to the lower level. Once again, this fork 
allows you to access an area you will visit later, but you can not get too far 
into, called Regenbogen. Head back to the intersection and take the north 
path.  This opens up the way to our destination, the Desert Ruins.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                           ~~~ Desert Ruins ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Felt, Noin
Enemies: Salamander, Fungo, Armadillo, Ghost, Red Puni
Bosses: Imperial Footman x2, Imperial Soldier
Key Items: Weapon Guide
Items: Dem Ore, Spoiled Meat x3, Faux Puniball x2, Old Magi Grass x2, Faux 
Puniball, Aihie Fungo, Pure Water, Pure Water, Niv Tiara
Mana Items: Box x11 (+3 Wood), Barrel x8 (+3 Wood)

Watch the scene as you enter. Enter the ruins themselves.

This will be your first dungeon. Follow the path and pick up the DEM ORE on 
the ground. Jump up (O Button) to the upper level and follow the path to the 
right. Jump up the next set up of stairs above you, and you'll find 8 boxes up 
here. Examine them, and you'll get SPOILED MEAT x3, FAUX PUNIBALL x2, OLD MAGI 
GRASS x2,and another FAUX PUNIBALL.  Destroy the rest for some Elements.

head back to the intersection and continue right.  Soon, you'll reach another 
intersection, this one is a 4-way. There's a box to destroy if you continue 
along the path.  Take the upper left path and you'll find a side room.  There 
are 3 Barrels in here, as well as a chest containing an AIHIE FUNGO.  Exit the 
room and head back to the intersection.

Take the lower right path and follow it until you reach another intersection.  
This time, continue down the screen all the way, and you'll reach (guess 
what?) another intersection.  To the right are two barrels, each of which 
contain some PURE WATER. Continue down the screen all the way and head up the 
stairs. There's a few more Barrels and Boxes up here, as well as a chest. The 
chest holds a NIV TIARA, which is just perfect to equip.

Head back two intersections, and take the right path.  You'll find a save 
point.  Save your game if necessary.  Continue right and through the far door.

Boss: Imperial Footman x2, Imperial Soldier
Experience: 406

Cole: 250
After a short scene, the true boss battle begins.
You are facing off against two Imperial Footmen and an Imperial Soldier.  The 
enemies get the first attack on you in this battle, unfortunately.  The 
Soldier probably end up doing around 15 damage a hit to your characters, while 
the Footmen will end up doing 10 damage each.  Keep your HP over 40 at all 
times, and when it gets lower than that, heal yourself with a Heal Herb from 
your inventory. Noin also has the ability to heal your party through her own 
special ability, if both of your characters are getting low in health.

Use Charge attacks only when there are three enemies left in the battle.  That 
way, you can have Noin use Force Blast on two of the three enemies, while Felt 
continues using a normal Charge attack, or Mana Wave if you end up with two 
levels of Force power after a few rounds of battle.  Avoid using the Break 
Attack command until there is only one enemy left, and then use ONLY the break 
command, so that you can keep the enemy from damaging you as long as possible.

As your first boss battle, this is not meant to be challenging, but it is also 
meant to show you how to fight the bosses of the game.
******************************************************

Head right and watch a scene. Open the chest near you and you receive the 
WEAPON GUIDE, which allows you to create a Craft as Viese later on. Watch a 
scene, and approach the left side of the screen for another scene.

On your way out of the ruins, you'll encounter a new type of enemy, a Ghost.  
This type of enemy is unkillavle by normal means.  Felt's Azure Azoth's normal 
attacks will be able to damage them, but Noin (or any other character's) 
normal attacks will always do no damage.  Instead, have your other characters 
use their special attacks.  In this case, have Noin use Force Blast to allow 
her to damage the enemies.

Head back to the exit of the area (bottom left corner of the area) and head 
back to Tatalia Village.

Immediately head to the large green tent at the top of the town. Watch a scene 
in here. Exit Tatalia Village, and head to the Desert Fork, where a scene 
plays out. Head to the Save Point to continue the game.  Speak with Noin and 
then try to exit the Tent, and examine the Save Book.

Metal Ball (+50 Metal)

Your control is changed over to Viese automatically. Note that Viese has no 
items or elements on her at the moment. Exit her house for a scene. Head off 
the screen, and all the way out of Noir. Enter the Eden Temple, and head into 
the indoor area. Enter the first door you see above you, and you'll find it to 
be locked.  Speak with Kreuz, and head back to Noir town.  

In Noir again, approach Yach's shop for a scene.  Lutanus gives you the 
LIBRARY PASS. Head back to the Eden Temple and enter the Library. In the 
library, examine the bookshelf closest to the door. You recieve the PETROGLYPH 
MANUAL. Exit the library and head out of the Temple for another scene. Head 
back to Viese's house in Noir for another scene.

When you regain control, exit Noir once again, but this time, head to the 
Great Cave, which is north of Noir.

In here, watch the scene.  Follow the path until you reach an intersection, 
and take the left.  Follow this path up to get some Metal elements, and soon 
you'll change the screen.  There's a rare Ball of Elements up here that will 
give you +50 to your Metal Elemental count if you destroy it.  Also, you'll 
find a stone tablet that you can't quite read yet, but it's good to know that 
it's there. Head back to the previous screen, and go back to the 
intersection.  Head up the path to the next screen.

Here follow the path to the intersection, in which you should take a left.  Up 
here, break the crystal and the rock for some elements, and open the chest for 
the key item ALCHEMIC ECON, which allows you to create Alchemist Medals.  
Continue along the path to the right and you'll see a scene.  Speak to the 
girl for a scene. Continue down the path and speak to the Mana. You recieve 
the METAL GEM.

Head back to Noir and enter Viese's house.

At this point, Felt and Viese share items and elements.  What Viese creates, 
Felt has access to. And what items Felt wins in battle or finds in chests or 
on the ground, Viese has access to.  Immediately open the menu to trigger a 
new scene.

Now that we have access to Felt's items, let's use the Alchemy Pot.  At this 
point, you should immediately be able to use a Nue and the Mana Dour to create 
a CRAFT. After creating the Craft, watch a scene.

Characters: Felt, Noin - Viese

Read Viese's letter. Also, at this point you can use the Switch characters 
command.  You can switch between Viese and Felt at any time as long as you are 
at a save point.

Now, immediately switch back over to Viese. You should be able to create one 
more item at this point, the ALCHEMIST MEDAL.  Use a Red Legien to create one 
or two of them, as you will be using them later on. Now, exit Viese's house 
and watch a short scene with Meila. Enter Viese's house for now, and change 
back to Felt.  That's all we can do at this point.

Mana Items: Barrel x6 (+3 Wood), Box x3 (+3 Wood)

Controlling Felt, try to exit the Tent for a scene. You're still in the Desert 
Fork.  Exit the Desert fork through the Eastern (right)path the Intersection 
to open the path up to the next area.

Note: At this point, you can visit a, for now, optional area.  It is a good 
place to get experience and some money if you want to.  I will cover the area 
later on in the guide, but it is called the Great Desert.  Expect to use a lot 
of items as you enter there for the first time, as the enemies will be very 
strong compared to you.

Another Note: Try to scrounge up 4,000 Cole before continuing with the game.  
There's an item you can buy in the next town that is that expensive.  Though 
it is a lot of Cole, you need to buy the item immediately.  If you can't it is 
perfectly fine to wait until later in the game though.

As you enter the area, watch a scene. Head right across the screen and speak 
to the guard. After the scene, head right onto the next screen.  Follow the 
path right, and you'll see an intersection.  There are only a few boxes and a 
chest for later up the top path, so continue right.  Watch the bottom of the 
screen and you'll see a ladder going down.  Jump to the wall and climb the 
ladder down.  There's a chest down here that contains a SUPER NUE. Continue 
right onto the next screen.  Here, you'll find an intersection.  Head south 
down it, and examine the boxes at the end.  You'll recieve a SPOILED MEAT x2, 
another SPOILED MEAT,MAGI GRASS x3, and a final SPOILED MEAT by examining the 
boxes. Head back up to the intersection and exit the bridge.

               ~~~ Back Alley - Central Park - Riese Palace ~~~

Characters: Felt, Noin
Key Items: None
Items: None

Enter the Back Alley.  There's two doors in the alley.  The door on the far 
right leads to a shop.  In here, you can buy the item "Geology" for the huge 
amount of 4,000 Cole. You don't really need it now though.  After this series 
of events, you'll have a bit more cole, so you can wait until then you buy 
it.  Enter the central set of doors and you'll find the bar.  Speak to the 
woman behind the counter, the Bartender.

After a scene in here, speak with the Bartender again.  She has the rare 
item "Book of Infinia" if you can afford this as well. It's doubtful you have 
that much money, but it's good to know where the item is. Exit the Back Alley. 
Two new areas have opened up.  First, enter the Central Park.  Watch a scene 
in here. Exit after this short scene, as there is nothing else left to do.  
Now, enter the Riese Palace and watch a scene.  Our next goal is clear to us 
now.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                    ~~~ Entering the Great Lighthouse ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Felt, Noin - Viese
Key Items: Garden Book, Aqua Gem
Items: Mini Pendelook, Magi Grass x4, Magi Grass x3, Magic Grass x2, Huffin 
x2, Huffin, Huffin, Huffin x2, Huffin x2, Huffin x2, Huffin x3
Mana Items: Wood Crystal x2 (+16 Wood), Aroma Crystal x2 (+16 Aroma), Water 
Crystal x2 (+16 Water) Plant x9 (+4 Wood, +4 Water)

Enter the Lighthouse for a scene.  Exit after the scene and head back into 
Central Park.  If you entered earlier, you saw a scene with the child.  Speak 
with the child at the center of the park, and he tells you the secret way to 
enter the Lighthouse IF you can bring him a flower. Now, head back to the Back 
Alley and enter the save point.  Switch characters to Viese.  

Controlling Viese, read the letter and exit your house. Head towards the exit 
of Noir for a short scene. Exit Noir town and enter The Eden Temple.  In the 
Temple, head to the Library for a scene. You receive the GARDEN BOOK. This 
allows you to create Wonder Grow and Huffin Water.

Head back to Viese's house in Noir. Examine her alchemy pot and choose to 
create a single Wonder Grow.  There's no need to create more than one, as 
Viese will Initialize it, and both she and Felt will be able to create more 
using your elements once it has been created initially. Watch a scene after it 
has been created. Meila gives you a MINI PENDELOOK for your efforts.  As you 
try and exit the house, Dour shows up for another scene.  He tells you about 
Nymph.  Make sure you have some Pure Water (you can get it from the Sink 
upstairs in Viese's house if you do not) and then head over to Marmel Forest.

In Marmel Forest, create some Wonder Grow from your Menu through Mana 
Synthesis. 5-10 would be perfect.  With Wonder Grow in your possession, you 
can cause the plants to grow from small into random items. Follow the forest 
until you reach your first two plants.  Use Wonder Grow on them to receive 
MAGI GRASS x3 and some MAGI GRASS x4. Speak with Nymph, and give her a Pure 
Water (you probably will have one if you check your sink upstairs everything 
you play as Viese) and she will join you as your third Mana. You obtain the 
AQUA GEM.  Use the Wonder Grow on the third plant for 2 MAGI GRASS.

Continue right through the forest until you reach the intersection, in which 
you should head down. There are 7 plants to use Wonder Grow on down here.  You 
will get HUFFIN x2, a HUFFIN, HUFFIN, HUFFIN x2, HUFFIN x2, HUFFIN x2, and 
finally HUFFIN x3 for using Wonder Grow on all of these. Now, head back to 
Noir and enter Viese's house.

You automatically switch back to Felt.  But, I suggest switching back to Viese 
for a moment.  Since you have access to Nymph now, you can create some new 
items with Alchemy.

First, let's create some Huffin Water.  This requires some Huffin (which we 
just got quite a few of from Marmel Forest.  If you need more, just use Wonder 
Grow on the flowers there) and a Pure Water, which you can find 5 of in the 
Sink upstairs in Viese's house. Synthesize only one, because after creation, 
Viese will Initialize the item.  Now, immediately create another one of these 
Huffin Waters through Mana Synthesis.  Now, choose "Fear Bottle."  This item 
requires some Spoiled Meat (found in boxes and barrels found in dungeons and 
towns throughout the game) and one of your new Huffin Waters.  Viese 
Initializes this as well. Note that with Huffin Water and Wonder Grow created, 
you can create some Holy Evergreen.  Use Huffin Water (of a Huffin) as the 
first ingredient, and then create the item.

Switch back to Felt and head back to Central Park. Give one of your newely 
obtained Huffin to the boy.  This opens a path to the Sewer.  Now we can 
finally continue the game.

Bosses: None
Key Items: Veek Tactics
Items: Moon Stone x3, 200 Cole, Red Legien x2, Old Magi Grass x3, Pure Water, 
Ancient Mask, Magi Grass x3, Wax x2
Mana Items: Barrel x4 (+3 Wood), Box (+3 Wood)

Note: Like the previous dungeon, you'll encounter Ghosts here. Remember that 
Noin's normal attacks will not work on them, but Felt's will. Another enemy, 
the Banshee, can also not be damaged by Noin normally. Use Noin's Force Blast 
instead to damage them.

Head left and follow the path until you reach an intersection.  Pick up the 
MOON STONE x3 and take the right path. There's two barrels on the far side, 
and continue along the path. At the next intersection, take a right, heading 
up the screen.  Follow this path all the way to the end and you'll find a 
teasure chest.  Open this to obtain 200 COLE. Head back to the previous 
intersection and take a left. Follow this until you reach another 
intersection, in which you should continue north up to the top of the screen.

Pick up the RED LEGIEN x2, and take a right at the intersection. Open the 
chest at the end of the path for the Key item VEEK TACTICS, which will allow 
Viese to create the Roten Helm through Alchemy. Head back to the intersection 
and go left down the screen until you reach a second intersection.  Head down 
the screen here and take the path all the way to the end and pick up the OLD 
MAGI GRASS x3. Head back up and continue left across the rest of the level.

At this last intersection, go north and you'll find three barrels and a box.  
The bos has nothing in it, so just destroy it.  One of the barrels has a PURE 
WATER though. Now, head south and jump to the lower level.  On the large log, 
press the "X" button.  In this new area, open the chest for an ANCIENT MASK. 
Go back up, take a left at the intersection, and at the wall, head south.  
Pick up the MAGI GRASS x3.  Now, head all the way up to the very top of the 
screen following this left wall to find a save point and some WAX x2. Save 
your game.

Note: At this point, since you have some Moon Stones now you can create some 
new items with Viese. Use a Dem Ore (or a Red Legien) and a Moon Stone to 
create a Pendulum. If you have that second Moon Stone, you can create a Roten 
Helm as well, by using a Red Legien and a Moon Stone.

Head up the ladder at the end to reach a new area.

Ore, 450 Cole
Mana Items: Barrel x4 (+3 Wood)

This new dungeon is multi-storied and will have quite a few more encounters 
than your previous dungeon. The areas are small, but there are quite a few 
intersections.

Head into the main area and you'll reach your first intersection.  Take the 
path up the screen and you'll find some stairs.  Go down them and you'll be in 
a single room with the chest.  Open the chest and you'll receive a GLOBEBALL. 
Head back up stairs to the intersection and head left down the screen. Go down 
the stairs here to continue.

You're immediately faced with another intersection. Head right up the side of 
the screen and you'll find a little storage room with three barrels and an 
item.  The item is FAUX PUNIBALL x2. One of the barrels has some FOUL WATER in 
it, too.  head back to the intersection and follow the path up the screen.

When you can go south, do so.  Head up the stairs here, and open the chest on 
this upper level.  This chest contains a GREEN MANA.  Head back downstairs. 
Head all the way up the screen and take the northern set of stairs to a new 
area.  This level is just a short little area heading to the right up to a 
brand new level.

This is the upper level portion of the Lighthouse. Head left and use the Save 
Point, if necessary. The stairs are at the far end.  This time, follow the 
path all the way right (making sure to pick up the SPOILED MEAT x2 on the way) 
and head up the stairs.  Continue left on the upper level up this set too.  
Head right across this next level and you'll be an an intersection.  Take the 
left path, open the chest for some ORE, and continue left up the stairs.  On 
the next level, head right and up the stairs here.

Save your game up here, and follow the right path until a scene plays out.  
You are forced into a battle with 2 Imperial Footmen and 2 Imperial Soldiers.  
This is much like the previous boss battle, except that you are stronger now. 
You'll get a good amount of Cole and Experience for winning, but it is still a 
normal encounter at this point. Watch a scene. Exit the cell, and follow the 
path right. Enter the cell to the left and pick up the 450 COLE from the 
chest. Soon, a short scene plays. You receive the LEGIN'S WING. This is a key 
item that will allow you to equip accessories as well as armor.  You can also 
learn "Skills" at this point.  Most probably, the only "Skill" item you'll 
have is an Alchemist Medal or two, so equip one on Felt immediately so that he 
can start learning "Offense."

Head down the stairs and follow the path down multiple screens.  Save your 
game when you reach the next save point. When you head downstairs next, a new 
scene plays.

******************************************************
Boss: Imperial Footman x4, Imperial Captain
Experience: 1900
Skill: 60
Items: None
Cole: 600
You'll probably get attacked before you have a chance to act in this battle.  
You are outnumbered five to two, so you will take quite a bit of damage. The 
Captain is quite a bit stronger than the Footmen, but there are more Footmen.  
What I suggest doing is starting off by targeting the two Footmen in the back 
with an area attack.  This will hit the Captain as well. Have your next attack 
be on one of the Footmen in the front row as a Charge attack so that you get 
pushed over the Level 1 Skill limit again.

The Captain's base attack (Skull Splitter) will probably do about twice the 
amount of damage that the normal footmen's attacks do, so make sure you keep 
yuor HP over 50 or 60 at all times if you plan on not being able to heal after 
a large beating. Also, be very careful, as the Captain has an ability called 
Landslide that will do around 40 damage.  Fortunately, this ability has some 
change time, so make sure you get your HP to a higher amount before this 
ability goes off.

If you aren't careful, the Captain has the ability to kill off your characters 
because of his powerful attacks.  Watch your HP and keep it well above the 
halfway point at all times, as it will drop VERY quickly until you get rid of 
about 3 of the enemies.  If necessary, use Noin's Heal Breeze as well, as it 
is quite helpful.

Once only the Captain is left, keep  Breaking him so that you avoid taking 
damage and raise your experience by the end of the battle.
******************************************************

You are automatically brought down to the Sewers.  Exit the sewers (there's 
nothing new).

Note: Fight a bit in the sewers to get some money.  Also, this will be your 
last chance for quite some time to buy those two extremely expensive items 
from the Back Alley. So you want to earn some money if possible. I suggest 
selling off any items that you have an excess of, or don't plan on using until 
later.

As you exit the Sewers, Max and Noin leave.  Finish anything you need to do in 
the area, as when you leave, you won't be able to come back for some time.

******************************************************
Boss: Mysterious Girl
Experience: 250
Skill: 12

Cole: None
This is a one on one battle with a myserious enemy.  She is quite fast, and 
will probably attack more often than you.  Breaking her is rather useless 
since she is much faster than you as a whole. Keep with Charge attacks rather 
than Breaks.  Charge often, and use Mana Strike at every opportunity. She 
doesn't have a huge amount of HP, but the hard part of the battle is balancing 
keeping your own HP up while damaging her.

Her attacks are powerful.  Her normal attacks will do 20 or so damage while 
her "Air Slicer" does around 40 damage to Felt. Keep your HP above 60 at all 
times, or even better, 80.  Your foe is powerful and fast. Make sure that you 
heal whenever you even -think- you need to.  And getting down below 45 HP is 
risking death.
******************************************************

When you regain contol, head left through to the next screen.  Continue left 
through the central screen until you reach the far side.  Keep going left and

Follow the path to the barrel, and press X on it to obtain some PURE WATER. 
Jump up to the upper level, and follow the path to the intersection.  Pick up 
the MOON STONE x2. Take the left path, and take the path all the way to the 
very end (ignoring the second intersection).  Over here is a chest that 
contains an ORE. Head back towards the first intersection and this time take 
the right path up the screen.

Follow this and soon you'll reach another intersection.  Take the right (down) 
path and you'll reach a lower level.  At the end of this path, you'll find a 
chest that contains a DARK MANA. Head back to the intersection and keep 
heading up the screen (you can not do anything with that tablet quite yet).  
Open the chest here for the MYTHOLOGY 1.  This Key item allows Viese to create 
the useful Nectar item. This path leads to the exit.

Box (+3 Wood)

Another dungeon is between you and your goal.  This one is a bit longer than 
before, but the enemies are pretty much the same.  Remember that you need 
Felt, or magical attacks to destroy Elementals.

Follow the path until you can go right, and take that. Stick to the right wall 
and follow the path (ignore the first intersection going left, it brings you 
back to the entrance). All the way right are two rocks to destroy for Mana, so 
when you can head north up the path. Destroy the Red Rock here again and take 
a left.  Go through the door here and you'll find a chest in this room.  Open 
the chest to obtain a RAINBOW DISK. Exit this room and go back to the 
intersection.

Follow the right path this time, and jump to the upper level.  There's an 
intersection up here, where you should take a left. Head north through the 
door when you see it, and pick up the item in here for DEM ORE x3. Exit the 
room and continue left.  Soon, you'll see some air coming from a hole in the 
wall. At this Point, STOP.  You need to press against the right wall when 
running into the wind, in a hopeful attempt to reach the secret passage to the 
right.  This passage (it is visible, don't worry) holds a chest that contains 
the kye item MELL AND THE MONSTER.  This item allows you to creaste an Aroma 
Pot through Alchemy with Viese.  Now, exit the secret passage.  Head right 
through two intersections (hug the right wall) and at the far northeastern 
corner of the area you will find the path to the next screen.

On the second screen of the Cave, pick up the DEM ORE x2. Now, follow the left 
wall all the way through the cave (soon, you'll actually be heading right) and 
eventually you'll reach a treasure chest at the dead end. Open it to obtain a 
GLOWING MANA.  Now head back a tiny bit, and head south at the intersection 
and allow yourself to be hit by the wind and pushed to the lower area. Follow 
the right wall here out of the area.

Watch a scene. Immediately open the chest here for the MYTHOLOGY 2. This item 
allows you to create the Item Wish with Viese. Now, speak with the man in the 
northwestern corner of the area (His name is "Bully") for a short scene. Now 
speak to Max. Max gives you 500 COLE to buy the cloth.

Note: Though there has been no indication of episode change, you can further 
the game by switching to Viese now.

Mana Items: None

Exit Viese's Workshop for a scene with Meila. Immediately head back into the 
house and exit again for a scene with Yach. Yach asks for you to make 10 
Wonder grows for him.  If you have 10 on you, you will give them to him 
automatically, otherwise, you will need to either Synthesize them from your 
Workshop and he will appear, or you need to go to his shop and see a scene 
with him there to give them to him.  You receive the BLACKSMITH 101 for 
creating the Wonder Grow x10. The Blacksmith 101 allows you to create Flay 
Hammers.

Note: If you do not get this item, and create it, by the end of Chapter 20, 
you will NEVER be able to. If this happens, you will not be able to finish the 
game.  I suggest going into your House and creating one immediately, as they 
are extremely useful items.

Another Note: You should have a decent amount of money at this point, and 
should be able to buy the recipe items from the stores.  Buy the REINCARNATION 
RECIPE, and a JEWEL OF EDEN from Melona. Buy a BBQ 101 or (or possibly both, 
if you can afford it) the NOIR from Yach.

Now, exit Noir and enter Marmel Forest. Head over to where you found the 
Azoth, and use a Wonder Grow on the plant to the north (it was never there 
before). You receive the HAL FLOWER. Watch a scene. You receive the FLORA GEM 
for your pact with the Fragrance Mana.  Head back to Noir and speak with Meila 
outside of your Workshop.  You obtain a YELLOW MANA for helping your friend 
out.

At this point, head into your Workshop.  You should be able to create a few 
new items. These include an Aroma Pot, a Return Gem, a Damask Ring (or a few, 
you need these a lot), and a Flay Hammer (Very Important!).  Viese initializes 
the Aroma Pot, Return Gem, and Flay Hammer, and as an added bonus, Yach gives 
you a new job.  Make 5 (or more) Flay Hammers through Mana Creation and head 
to Yach's shop. He gives you 800 COLE for doing this for him.

That's about all there is to do as Viese for the moment.  

Switch back to Felt.  Exit the Agito Cove and Noin leaves your party. Now, you 
need to walk all the way back to Tatalia Village.

(+6 Fire, +3 Metal), Yellow Rock (+5 Stone, +3 Metal), Box (+3 Wood)

Head into the far back of tatalia Village and speak with Mitsue, the 
merchant.  She gives you the CLOTHSPINNER. This allows you to create some 
Cotton Cloth with Viese.  You can probably create some other types of Cloth as 
well, when you have a Phoenix Quill. Also, you may want to buy an Ale from 
Mitsue while you're here.  Ale will allow you to create a Nectar with Viese. 
She Initializes it immediately, so you will not need anymore Ale.

Now, your goal is the "Great Desert."  If you have not been there before, you 
need to enter the Desert Fork and take the bottom path at the intersection.

Note: If you will see above, the "Mana Items" Has been changed to Elemental 
items, and I have added Harvested items.  Now that we have both the Flay 
Hammer and Wonder Grow, we can destroy less items and obtain more items.  
Items obtained through means of "Wonder Grow" or "Flay Hammer" are going to be 
put into the Harvested Items section. Elemental Items remain any items that 
serve no purpose except to destroy to raise your Mana Count.  "Items" are 
items that you find on the ground or in chests, and Key Items remain the same 
as before.

Immediately as you enter the Great Desert you encounter an intersection.  Most 
of the area will be like this, with intersections leading to the same place. 
Heead straight down, and follow the left screen.  Almost immediately, a scene 
begins.

******************************************************
Boss: Sand Dragon
Experience: 900
Skill: 45
Items: None
Cole: 300
Felt gets some unexpected help from a new ally in this battle. Though Gray is 
very powerful, he is quite slow, and Felt will act before him, often twice as 
often as him as well.  This makes Gray a bad "Break Attack" partner in boss 
battles, as his speed will allow the enemy to get out of the Break Zone before 
he can go again. 

What I suggest doing in this battle is having Felt use a Charge Attack each of 
his rounds, and each time Gray gets a round, have him use his Twin Dragon 
Skill every round. That ability should take down well over 400 HP of the boss.

The boss is not particularly strong, but his normal attacks do around 30 a 
hit.  He also has a very nasty Quicksand ability.  This ability does around 30 
damage to both characters.  Keep your HP over 70 or so with both characters to 
avoid deaths. Fortunately, Gray is powerful, the boss is slow, and Felt is 
fast, so with this setup, you shouldn't have too much problem taking the boss 
down quickly.  Just don't bother trying to Break Attack the boss, keep 
Charging him and using Skills.
******************************************************

After a short scene, Gray joins your party.

Continue left, and at the intersection, head right up the screen. There are 
two plants up here to use Wonder Grow on.  These each reveal a Fire Crystal 
for you to destroy.  Head back to the intersection and take the southern fork 
over the bridge. Over here, you'll find MOON STONE x2.  Head back up, and 
continue left all the way.  Fall down to the lowest level, and take the left 
path all the way down.  Pick up the OLD MAGI GRASS x4. Head back right and 
follow the path south and around the screen until you reach the second screen 
of the Great Desert.

On the second screen, press against the northern wall and you'll be able to 
pass the rocks when the screen gets larger.  At the top of the screen you'll 
find a chest, which contains a STRING. Head back south and continue following 
the screen left. Head south when you can and examine the barrel here to obtain 
some FOUL WATER. Now, head back north and follow the left path, sticking to 
the northern wall. Soon, you'll see some plants, in a central Oasis area.  
Head south and enter the oasis from the left.  There are three bushes in here 
for destruction purposes.  Use the Wonder Grow on the two Plants in here for 
two rare Lightning Crystals to destroy. Head back out of the Oasis and exit to 
the left.

On this new screen, follow the straight path until you reach the intersection, 
and head left to pick up those NUE x2. Head back and continue to the right, 
and head south when possible.  Take the southern path and keep going south at 
every intersection, until you see a sign.  Here, head right and stick to the 
right wall. Soon, the change screens.  There's a chest over here.  Open it to 
obtain a nice 2,000 COLE. Head back to the previous screen, head left until 
you reach the previous sign, and head south onto the next screen.

On this screen, you're immediately faced with an intersection.  Take either 
path south and examine the two barrels. Both Barrels contain some FOUL WATER 
for you.  Continue southeast along the path until you reach an intersection. 
Head right, and south down the screen. There are two boxes down here, as well 
as a chest.  Open the chest for a MAGIC PIPE. Head back north a bit until you 
see the save point.  I don't suggest using it, as it will regenerate all of 
the enemies in the area.  From there, continue right and watch a short scene. 
With a few Wonder Grows in your possession, use them on the Sprouts here.  The 
sprouts hold: TATALIA COTTON, TATALIA COTTON x3, TATALIA COTTON x3, TATALIA 
COTTON x2, TATALIA COTTON x3, TATALIA COTTON x2, TATALIA COTTON x2, and 
finally, a TATALIA COTTON.  Since you can't get Tatalia Cotton just anywhere, 
I suggest getting all of these here.

After obtaining all of your Tatalia Cotton, you need to get out of this Hell 
Hole.  I suggest still not using the Save Point, as you won't have as many 
encounters. Now you need to head -all- the way back to the entrance of the 
Great Desert.

Head back to Agito Cove.

Watch a scene. Head over and speak to Noin for another scene.

Now, head into the Save Point. Switch to Viese. Immediately create 5 Cotton 
Clothes using your Tatalia Cotton and the Clothspinner. Switch back to Felt 
and give your brand new Cotton Cloth to Max.

Unfortunately, something -else- is wrong with your boat at this point.

Note: If you switch to Viese and go talk to Yach in his shop.

Now, to continue with the game, head to the West Coast Highway. head to the 
Intersection with the 2 Moon Stones, and take a left.  Jump to the upper level 
here.  Follow this path to the end and you open up a new dungeon.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                            ~~~ Holy Path ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Felt, Gray
Enemies: Falcon Hawk, Harpy, Wolf, Mini Puni, Master Puni

Stone x4 (Green Rock), Red Ore x6 (White Rock), Red Legien x6 (Red Rock), Moon 
Stone x5 (Green Rock), Ice Stone x5 (Green Rock)
Elemental Items: Box x3 (+3 Wood), Barrel x2 (+3 Wood)

This will be the first dungeon you get to use your Flay Hammers in.

Head into the mountains and use a Flay Hammer on the green rock for MOON STONE 
x5. Follow the path up the mountain and use a Flay Hammer on the second rock 
to receive ICE STONE x3. Continue following the twisting path up the mountain, 
Use the Flay Hammer on that red rock for RED LEGIEN x6. Start jumping up the 
rocks (ignore the left path, there's nothing down there) and head up the right 
path. Follow this right path over the bridge (you can't get that chest quite 
yet) and onto the next screen.

On this foresty screen, head right and use a Flay Hammer on the red rock for 
DEM ORE x6 and use another on the green rock for MOON STONE x5. Cross the 
bridge to the right, and jump up the rock path above it.  Break the Green Rock 
up here for some ICE STONE x3. Head back down, and continue right to the next 
screen.

Here, you begin at the top of a large "mountain." Follow the path down past 
the save point and follow it right. Soon, you'll reach an intersection.  Take 
the right path through the door.  Use a Flay Hammer the red rock in here for 
DEM ORE x6. Use it on the White Rock next for RED ORE x4. Continue to the next 
screen.  Now follow this path left all the way to the end, and open the 
chest.  This contains an AROMA TALISMAN.  Head back two screens to the 
intersection.

This time, take the left fork up the mountain. After your first jump, there is 
immediately another (although it is not easy to see) intersection.  Jump up to 
the left, and take the left path all the way to the corner.  There are two 
rocks up here. Use a Hammer on the green rock for ICE STONE x4.  Flay Hammer 
the White Rock for RED ORE x6. Head back a bit, and jump up to the right when 
possible.  At the very top of the large mountain, head all the way right and 
fall down.  Use a Flay Hammer on the red rock for RED LEGIEN x6.  Use another 
Hammer on the green rock to the right for MOON STONE x5. Fall down, and use a 
Flay hammer on the hidden green rock down here for ICE STONE x5. Now follow 
the southern path across the screen and open the chest at the end.  It 
contains 960 COLE.  Head all the way back to the top of the level, and exit at 
the top of the screen.

This screen is quite a bit darker.  Head north up the path until you reach the 
intersection.  You can't do anything down the left path for now, so head 
across the bridge to the next screen.

Up here you have finally reached the Summit of the mountain. There's a few 
boxes and barrels up here, but our goal is the door.  It is green, and very 
hard to see on the northwest side of the screen.  Watch a scene in here. Now 
you need to get down off the mountain.  It's a long walk, so I suggest using a 
Return Gem.

Speak with Max. After a short scene, speak with Hagel again. Watch a short 
scene. At this point, the Weapon Synthesis Command opens up. Examine the anvil 
in your tent to use it. Speak with Max again for another scene. Noin rejoins 
your party at this point, but her gear has been removed, so you'll need to re-
equip her.

However, before you leave with Max, enter your Tent.  Tt is a good idea to 
upgrade your weapons. Note that though you can upgrade further than this at 
this point, it is best to learn your abilities before upgrading to the 
strongest weapon possible.
Giving Felt a Lightning Azoth will allow him to learn Aura Strike.
Giving Gray an Ice Blade will allow him to learn Ice Breath.
Give Noin a Gauntlet so that she can learn Storm Blast. 

Also note that now is a good time to make an Item Wish with Viese, if you have 
not already. After creating it, Melona at the item shop asks you for a Star 
Piece.  You can get one of these by using an Item Wish on the Wolves found 
throughout the game. However, Felt needs to be around level 12 or even 13 for 
the item to actually work, which is why I have waited this long to mention 
this mini-quest. The best location to do this is either the Northern Cave or 
the Holy Path. After obtaining this item, give a Star Piece to Melona and she 
gives you a Glowing Mana in return.

After doing this, speak with Max in Agito Cove to head across the Sea.

This is a rather small area. Jump up off the docks and you're faced with an 
intersection. Head left here and jump up the rocks at the end.  Pick up the 
NUE x2. Go back to the intersection and jump up the rocks to the right and 
follow the path until you reach another intersection. Go south down the screen 
and open the chest for a BLUE MANA. Head back north, and at the next 
interection take a right.  Open the chest over here for the Key item ICE AGE.  
This item allows you to create a Bomb Ice with Viese.  Continue north (ignore 
the left path, there's nothing there) and exit the area.

As you exit the area, a path back to Agito Cove is opened (you can go back to 
the previous area at any time).

Watch the scene. When you regain control, immediately press against the left 
wall and walk behind the tents.  Open the chest back here for an ANKH.  head 
back north all the way and go right when you can.  Open the chest up here for 
the key item THE LIFE. This allows you to create Eite Liqueur with Viese. 
Also, note that you can buy the key item BELKHYDE from the Merchant (he is 
dressed as a chef) just north of this item.  This item allows you to create 
Belk Blackbelts.

Now head a bit left and enter the large green tent at the center of the camp. 
After a scene, you should switch to Viese.  You can create your Bomb Ice as 
Viese.  You should also be able to create a Belk Blackbelt if you switch your 
items around a bit.
Also, at this point, head near Yach's Shop.  You'll see a scene with Klavia. 
You can also speak with Yach for a scene.

After you're ready to continue, exit Max's Camp.  Two new areas open up.  One 
area is to the north (and there's nothing we can do there quite yet, other 
than fight, as the path is blocked, but there is an ORE to pick up from the 
chest here) so head down to the West Sessier Plains.

Crystal - From Wonder Grow (+16 Fire)

Note: There is a new type of item you can harvest in this area.  At this 
point, you will not have the items to actually Harvest it, so you're going to 
just have to destroy them in the field.  They are plant types that are a bit 
different shaped than the normal ones you use Wonder Grow on.

At the start of this area, press against the left wall and jump to the upper 
level.  Follow this path and at the bottom use a Wonder Grow on the plant for 
GLOWGRASS x2. Now head right and use a Wonder Grow on the two plants here (one 
on the upper level and the other on the lower level) for DRY GLOWGRASS x3 and 
a GLOWGRASS.  Open the chest for the Key Item CRYSTAL 101. This allows you to 
create Red Crystals with Viese. Jump back to the upper level and head back to 
the entrance.  There are three plants to harvest near the entrance, and they 
give you GLOWGRASS x2, an Aroma Crystal, and a Wood Crystal. From here, head 
down the screen, and press against the forest. Here, you'll find a hidden path 
with a sign that say 'Dead End Ahead." Change screens and open the chest here 
for a NIV TIARA. Go back to the previous screen. This time, continue right and 
all the way onto the next screen.

In this new Plains area, head right until you find an intersection. Head to 
the far right here (making sure to use a Wonder Grow to obtain DRY GLOWGRASS 
x2 and the Water Crystal), and exit the area.  This opens up a path to Sessier 
Forest.  However, we are not done with the Plains, so re-enter the plains 
immediately. Head back to the intersection and take the south path.

Jump to the upper level, follow the path until you fall down again.  Over in 
this broad open area, follow the path and use the Wonder Grow on the two 
plants for DRY GLOWGRASS x2 and a Fire Crystal. Continue in this direction and 
use the Wonder Grow another time for GLOWGRASS x3. Now, there is an 
intersection here. Ignore the left path (it leads back to the original screen) 
and take the path leading south. There's another intersection immediately. 
Take a right here and open the chest at the end for a YELLOW MANA. Take the 
left fork out of the Plains, and a path to "Fort Zeyung" Opens up.  There's 
nothing to do there now, and you're finally done with the plains.

Head into the forest.

open the chest at the end of this path for 670 COLE. Head back to the

The second screen of the forest is quite a bit bigger. You're immediately 
faced with an intersection. Take a left and press against the upper wall and 
take another left when you can immediately.  You will find MAGI GRASS x3 on 
the ground here. Continue north up this path and open the chest for some 
STRING.  Head back south to the original intersection and take the right path

Now that we have three party members our strategy can be a bit broader than 
just Breaking and special attacks. First, kill off the two Parafungos 
immediately.  They are the lesser threat and can be killed off with two or 
three normal physical attacks.  Don't worry about Breaking them, and Only 
Charge Attack them.  Do not waste your Special Powers on them.

The Poisonous Fungo specializes in status skills.  He will paralyze you, 
poison you, put you to sleep, among other things.  Poison is probably the most 
annoying of these as it causes your HP to decrease quite a bit faster than 
normal.  You most probably do not have a way to cure this either, so you're 
going to have to live with the statuses.  Keep your HP around 70+ at all times 
to be safe. 

If you saved all of your Special ability, have all of your characters use 
their strongest attacks (probably Aura Strike with Felt and Twin Dragon with 
Gray). Noin will not be the strongest at this point, but she does have a heal-
all ability. You may want to use a Break Attack every round with her. If you 
can keep using special attacks every round, he should fall quickly, but the 
statuses will be quite annoying.

Head into the large green tent at the center for a scene. Speak with Max 
outside of the tent, and then head down the screen and speak with Hagel. Now, 
exit the Camp.

The goal is Fort Zeyung.  Hopefully during your trip through the Plains you 
opened up the passage, otherwise the path is at the far southwest of the 
Sessier Plains. After a short scene here, speak to the Merchant on the wall. 
You MUST buy the ANTIDOTE GUIDE from him for 100 Cole to continue with the 
game.  This allows Viese to create the Cure Jar. Head back to Max's Camp and 
use the Save Point to switch to Viese.

After a short scene, have Viese make a Cure Jar.  She Initializes the item, so 
you only need to make one. You automatically switch back to Felt. Head into 
the large green tent for a scene. Head outside and speak to Max. Head back 
inside and speak with the girl.

After the scene ends, speak with Max and exit the tent. Head down the screen 
and speak to the woman.  Try to exit the area, and another scene plays. Noin 
leaves, but Fee joins. You may want to upgrade her weapon before continuing. 
The Cross Slicer allows Fee to learn "Twin Slicer."

Note: Now is a good time to go speak with Klavia again as Viese.  She is that 
moping Sound Mana who you probably spoke with before.  After a short scene 
with Klavia, she disappears once again.

When you're ready, head into Sessier Forest once again.

second screen, head right immediately, and near where you found Fee, go north 
up the path.  This takes you to the third screen. 

On this screen, you encounter another intersection.  Stick right again (you 
can not do anything up the left path as of yet) and use some Wonder Grow on 
the three plants down this path.  You obtain GLOWGRASS x3, and you also reveal 
2 Poison Crystals to destroy. Jump up to the upper level and use the Wonder 
Grow on the plant up here for DRY GLOWGRASS x3. Continue up to the next upper 
level, and near the boat dock watch a scene. 

Jump onto the boat and press X.

Aroma), Water Crystal x2 - From Wonder Grow (+16 Water), Fire Crystal - From 
Wonder Grow (+16 Fire), Twisty Plants (+6 Wood, +6 Water)

Note: Before continuing, you may want to switch to Viese and speak with Klavia 
again to continue the series of events to obtain your Sound Mana.

Altena Forest is a bit like Sessier Forest, except bigger. After a short scene 
and an episode change.

Follow the path straight and take a right (there's nothing in those barrels) 
at the intersection.  Follow the path until you reach the next intersection.  
Take the south fork and use Wonder Grow on the plant here to reveal a Wood 
Crystal. Be sure to get the Elements from that Bush near here as well. Follow 
this path south until you reach a little area with a bush to destroy and two 
plants to use Wonder Grow on. You obtain GLOWGRASS x2 for using it on one of 
them, and you reveal an Aroma Crystal for the second. Head back up to the 
intersection and take the northern path to the next screen.

On the second screen, follow the path until you reach a (hard to see) 
intersection.  Use a Wonder grow on the plant to the right to reveal a Water 
Crystal. Continue right here and use the Wonder Grow on the other two plants 
for two sets of  DRY GLOWGRASS x2. Head back and continue left past the 
intersection. Soon, a scene occurs. Save your game if you desire, and continue 
along the path. Watch a scene.

This battle is unwinnable at this point. After a few rounds, Chaos slaughters 
you with Crimson Flash. Watch the scenes. When you regain control, exit the 
tent for another scene.

When you regain control, continue right to the next screen, and through the 
next screen (where the battle took place) to a new portion of the woods.

There is immediately an intersection.  Take the right path around the area 
until you reach the next intersection, in which you should take a left.  Open 
the chest here for a TOTEM SHIELD. The only thing that is at the intersection 
is a few Bushes to destroy for elements, so head back to the initial 
intersection and take a left.  This brings you to a new screen.

On this new screen, follow the path until you reach the intersection, and 
press up as far as possible, this will allow you to get to move to the left.   
Open the chest to the far left for an AROMA TALISMAN. Head back to the 
intersection and, still up here, press right and pick up the item for SPOILED 
MEAT x2. Finally, press up at the intersection to find the path to the next 
screen.

You come upon an intersection soon.  Take the southern path.  There are quite 
a few plants here, but you can not use Wonder Grow on all of them. Instead 
destroy the "twisty" looking ones for Mana (you will be able to harvest them 
later) and use Wonder Grow on the plants for a Water Crystal and a Fire 
Crystal. Head back to the intersection and head north. Open the chest up here 
for an EXPERIMENT, which allows Viese to create a Lota Cake. Follow the path 
and take a right at the intersection, and take a left at the next one. This 
leads to the exit.

Key Items: Healing Skills, Botany 101, Sound Gem
Items: Gravity Stone, Moon Stone x2, Glowing Mana
Elemental Items: None

Watch a scene. Follow Eizlen into the next room. Continue down the path for 
another scene. When you regain control head to the next screen.  Follow the 
path and take a left when you can.  There is a chest in here that contains a 
GRAVITY STONE. Head back and speak with Einzlen again. Continue following her 
to the next screen, and open the next chest for the key item HEALING SKILLS. 
This item allows Viese to create a Heal Jar. Continue along the path for a 
third scene. Enter the room and take the teleporter. Speak to Yuveria twice.

After the scenes, take the teleporters back and head back to the main church 
through the long path. Speak to Eizlen for a scene.  Also, there's a woman in 
the church that sells you the BOTANY 101 for 900 Cole.  This allows Viese to 
create Yugdore Water.

Note: Now is a good time to switch to Viese since there is a short break in 
the story. You should create a Heal Jar immediately, which Viese initializes. 
Melona gives you MOON STONE x2 for creating a Heal Jar. Once a Heal Jar is 
created, create a Yugdore Water.  This item is a different version of the 
Wonder Grow, and it works on the Swirly Plants in areas like Altena Forest. 
Exit Viese's house, and if you've spoken with Klavia three times before, a 
scene plays out. Viese makes a pact with Siren, your new Sound Mana.

Also, if you speak to melona at this point, she asks you to bring her a 
Rainbow Disk.  You probably have found one of these in a chest on the way 
through the game. Melona gives you another GLOWING MANA in trade. Speaking 
with Yach also gives you a scene.

That's pretty much all there is to do as Viese at the moment. Switch back to 
Felt.

Note: If you haven't already, upgrade your weapons a second time for anyone 
who has learned their current skill.

Follow the path right through the first screen.  The second screen is rather 
linear as well, and follow it through the save point and continue jumping up 
the upper levels. Soon, you enter a cavern.

Once inside, follow the path to the first intersection, in which you should 
head left (you can not get to the item up top just yet). Follow this path for 
quite some time, jumping up and down levels until you see the barrel.  Examine 
it to obtain some PURE WATER. Continue along and take the left path at the 
intersection.  There's a chest at the end here, and it contains the MYSTIC 
BEAST, which allows Viese to create a Basilisk Eye.  Head back to the 
intersection and take the right path up the screen.

Soon you come upon another intersection.  Take a right here and use a Flay 
hammer on the green rock for MOON STONE x8.  Head back and follow the left 
path to the wall.  At the next intersection, head right (there's nothing to 
the left) and follow the twisting path to yet another intersection.  Take the 
path up the screen (ignore the right path, you can't do anything down there 
just yet) and examine the door.

Watch a scene. You automatically switch to Viese.

Watch a scene. Exit Viese's workshop, and head to Yach's shop. He has some new 
Key items to sell after a short scene.  Buy THE LIGHT from him for 300 Cole, 
which allows you to make Glow Lamps and Flames.  Exit Noir and head to the 
Eden Temple to speak with Kreuz.

Exit the Eden Temple now and after a short scene head to the new area on the 
map: Scarlet Temple.

Watch a scene. Break the two crystals at the entrance for some Elements and 
continue left. Take a left at the intersection and open the chest at the end 
for a RED MANA. Head back to the intersection and take the right path further 
into the land. Watch a scene.  Continue down the path and take a right at the 
intersection. use Flay Hammers on the three red rocks here to obtain three 
sets of RED LEGIEN x9. Head back to the intersection and take a left. Soon 
another scene plays.

Keep heading left and at the next intersection.  Keep heading all the way down 
this path to find three Fire Elemental Balls (for later) and a chest that 
contains another RED MANA. Head back to the intersection and head right up the 
screen.

Watch a scene on the new screen. You receive the FIRE GEM. As you're exiting 
the area, Poe leaves. Head back to Noir and enter Viese's Workshop for another 
scene. Now, you need to have Viese create a GLOW LAMP.  You can mess around 
with the item requirements if you wish (they are rather steep) but you do need 
to be able to make that Eite Liqueur for this.  Only make one, as Viese 
Initializes the item so that you don't need to make any more.  Watch a scene 
after it is created. While you're in the workshop, have Viese create a Flame 
as well, which she also Initializes.

Now, head into the menu and have Viese create a few Glow Lamps.  Exit the 
workshop and head to the main screen of Noir. Enter the large building to the 
left that is the historical society.  There are two things to examine on the 
right wall, one is about the Azoth and another is a Map. You receive a 
WORKSHOP MAP. Finally, examine the large door at the end of the hall. Now, 
exit the society and head back to the Workshop. Watch a scene.

After reading Viese's letter, watch the scene.  You have returned to Altena 
Church. Head east from Altena Church into the North Grand Plains.

This new area is quite large. Immediately press against the right wall until 
you see a little White Butterfly. Keep pressed on the right wall here and 
you'll find a hidden chest. This contains an ILLUSION BRACELET. Head back. 
Follow the path past the NPC, and continue to the intersection.  Keep heading 
up at the Intersection and onto the next screen. Here, there is a save point 
and two plants to harvest.  Use Wonder Grow on them to reveal a Wood and Water 
Crystal. To the north there are two more plants to use Wonder Grow on. You 
receive a YADOK FUNGO x3 and some YADOK FUNGO x2. There's nothing down the 
left path except a box and barrel, so continue north to the next intersection. 
Take a right here and open the chest for 980 COLE. Continue north to the next 
intersection and take a left.  Open the chest here for the key item 
INSTRUCTION MANUAL, which allows Viese to create a Silver Crowbar. There's a 
plant to use Wonder Grow on above this, which holds an Air Crystal, as well as 
two bushes to destroy. Also, there is one more plant to use Wonder Grow on to 
the far left to obtain YADOK FUNGO x2. Exit to the far left.  This opens a new 
area on the world map.

Immediately re-enter the plains.  Follow the path right back to the 
intersection, and take a right here.  Follow the path back to the next 
screen.  Here, destroy the bush and use the Wonder Grow on the plant to reveal 
a Water Crystal and a Stone Crystal.  There are a few plants to use Wonder 
Grow on to the right as well, these hold YADOK FUNGO x2, YADOK FUNGO x3, and a 
Poison Crystal. Now, head left and cross the bridge.  Take an immediate left 
and open the chest at the far end. This contains a BLUE MANA.

Head back to the Intersection and take a left, and follow the southern path 
over the bridge and follow it north to the exit.  This opens up a path to the 
FOrest of Ocean Mist.  Immediately re-enter The Plains and head south down 
this screen onto the next screen.  Watch a short scene here, and speak with 
the large Red Puni for a scene.

Now, you need to go to Parnaky Cave.  If you've explored this area completely, 
you've already opened the path to the area up.  Otherwise, the exit is to the 
far west.

Note: A final item you can get in the area is 2 OLD YADOK FUNGO x2, by heading 
right from the very original entrance of the area, and then south at the 
second intersection.

Elemental Items: None

Note: You may want to switch to Viese and have her create a Silver Crowbar. 
You should also be able to create a Gray Crowbar and Gold Crowbar with some 
rather common items. 

Follow the path in the cave, and follow the left wall immediately. Go all the 
way down and use the Flay Hammer on the red rock for RED LEGEIN x8, and use it 
again on the green one for MOON STONE x7. Head back up, and take a right into 
a small area when you can. Use a Flay Hammer on the green rock in here for 
SHADOW STONE x4.  Continue down this screen to the right and at the 
intersection, and head south and follow the path left and head south to the 
next screen.

On the second screen, follow the path, and take a right at the intersection. 
Follow the path and break the first green rock for  SHADOW STONE x5. Continye 
along, and use the Flay Hammer on the second Green Rock for MOON STONE x7.  
Use it on the yellow/gold rock for some RED ORE x8, and then finally the white 
rock for SILVER LEGIEN x4.

Head back to the intersection and this time take a left.  Follow this straight 
path and jump up to the upper level to the left when possible.  Break the Red 
Rock up here for DEM ORE x8, and break the white rock for SILVER LEGEIN x5.  
Head back down the right path and take the first path out you see.  Open the 
chest for 810 COLE. Head down the screen and a scene plays.

Exit the room. Now follow the path all the way back to the original screen, 
and speak to the Puni near the entrance.  He tells you that a girl with Red 
Hair has been seen in the Forest of Ocean Mist. 

This is another area you open up through the North Grand Plains, except the 
exit is to the far side of the area. As you enter the area, speak to Noin, and 
she rejoins your party, along with giving you ME, MYSELF, & BOMB.

Now, you need to switch to Viese, do so in Altena Church. Have Viese create a 
MEGA FLAME. Exit Viese's house for a short scene as well. Speak with Yach and 
you'll see a scene as well. You might want to go check out Dour's tree, as 
there are some new items by it.

========
Once you've created a few Flames, switch back to Felt. Though the goal is 
Parnacky Cave again, you can get a few items in the meantime. First, Fee can 
now equip a Rage Slicer, so she can learn a new ability.

You can find 3 Silver Legien and Yugen Diary Vol. 2 in The Wetlands using your 
Bombs. This is actually required for later.
You can find the Key item Liquidification in Onuki Cave, from a chest. You 
also obtain Red Ore x2. Now is in fact, a good time to visit there. You can 
not finish the Cave completely as of yet, but it is a good time to get this 
key item.
========

After you've gotten the items, head into the Cave. Take a right at the 
entrance and blow the rock up with a bomb.  Take a left here, and open the 
chest for the key item PAPER SKILLS, which lets Viese learn how to make some 
Magic Paper. Head back right and follow this path to the Save Point.  Save if 
you want, and head to the next screen.  Here, continue until a scene plays.


******************************************************
Boss: Virum Zombie
Experience: 1,500
Skill: 50
Items: Dragon Horn
Cole: 600

This is your first "real" battle, seeing as you finally have access to more 
than 3 party members at once. Depending on your setup, you can follow one of 
two strategies.  With Noin, Fee, and Felt, you have a fast party and can break 
the boss into anihilation, getting attacked less often.  But with Fee, Gray, 
and Felt you have a stronger physically party, but you're going to need to 
rely more on charge attacks.

Start off the first few rounds by charging your attacks.  After getting your 
power up, you can start with special and breaking.  The best attacks to use at 
this point are Storm Blast, Endless Blade, Aura Strike, and Twin Dragon.  I 
wouldn't suggest wasting your points on Storm Blast though, as the other 
abilities you have at this point are stronger, and Noin's Healing Breeze is 
more important anyway.  Depending on your strategy though, you may want to 
avoid specials mostly and focus on breaking.

The boss has a Dark Mist ability, which does 30 or so damage to all three of 
your members, as well as having the ability to cause Defense Down, an even 
more dangerous status effect. He also has an extremely strong ability called 
Death Breath, which does around 50 damage to each party member.  This ability 
has some charge time to it though, so you need to make sure to get everyone's 
HP before this ability goes off, because the boss is capable of having two 
attacks in a row, and can attack with both his Dark Mist and Death Breath for 
around 80 to everyone.  While this is unlikely, do be careful.

Healing may be a factor in this battle, so you may want to bring Noin in with 
her Healing Breeze ability. The boss starts getting dangerous with his 
physical attacks, so you may also need more than a few Nectars if you are 
unable to keep your HP up.
******************************************************

Watch a scene. Now, with  Yugdore Water (yes, you do need it to continue the 
game) use it on the plants.  You get PEARLBERRY x4, PEARLBERRY x3, PEARLBERRY 
x4, PEARLBERRY x5, and finally, PEARLBERRY x3.

Now, exit the area.

Note: At this point, it is possible to create a White Crystal, even though you 
haven't gotten any new recipes.  First, go into the Red Crystal Synthesis 
menu, and then select a Pearlberry instead of a Red Legien as the main 
ingredient.  This allows you to create a White Crystal.

Another Note:  There is a second hidden item in Parnacky Cave.  Head south 
through the area, and on the first screen, near the exit to the second 
screen.  Shatter the large rock here with the Mega Flame and open the chest 
for the ICE BRAND.

This forest is only a short little dungeon before the real thing. Drop down 
into the forest to the right and follow the path until you reach an 
intersection. Now, this part is a bit iffy, but at the large open area, follow 
the path to the upper right as far as possible, and follow this new path to a 
new area. In here, just head north and enter the purple area at the top of the 
screen.

If you've played the first Atelier Iris this area will be somewhat familiar to 
you, as will the enemies. Head right and you'll immediately encounter a 4 way 
intersection.  Take the southern path (left) and pick up the item on the 
ground, which is a PUNIBALL.  Head back up, and go down the stairs to the 
right.  Pick up the item here for a PHOENIX QUILL. Go back a -tiny- bit and 
walk across that bridge to the right (you can't do anything to the north just 
yet, as it is only one of those untranslatable tablets).

In the new portion of the level, you'll see many plants to use Wonder Grow 
on.  There are three Illusion Crystals, an Air Crystal, and finally some YADOK 
FUNGO x2. Head right (ignore the little platform, it doesn't go anywhere) and 
continue right at the next intersection.

Jump up to the save point in this large area (but I don't suggest using it) 
and head left.  Open the chest here for a GLOWING MANA.  head back down and 
take a right from the save Point.  Press X at the platform, and it leads you 
to a new floating area. Pick up the SHADOW STONE x2. Head back, and go all the 
way up the screen.  Open the chest here for the TOWN HISTORY, which allows 
Viese to create a Divine Shield. Go back a bit, and take the right path, and 
use the rock to get over to a new area.  Use a second rock to get over to an 
intersection.  This time, take the lower rock to open a chest that contains a 
MAGIC PIPE. Go back to the intersection and take a right.

You come to a 4 way intersection this time. Take the southern (left) stone and 
you'll reach a small island with 2 Bushes and three items to use Wonder Grow 
on. You obtain a Water Crystal, Wood Crystal, and YADOK FUNGO x4.  Go back to 
the intersection, and head right some more.  There are three more plants over 
here.  These hold a YADOK FUNGO, YADOK FUNGO x3, and a Fire Crystal. Now, head 
back and take the top stone (the only one you haven't taken yet) and after a 
long ride you are brought to a new area.

Here, take the left path and open the chest over here for a BLACK MANA.  
ignore the stone and head back. Head up the screen and jump up to the upper 
levels.  Examine the door for a scene.

Though the game tells you to check on things in Eden, if you go there, no 
events will occur just yet, so we need to just continue on with the game.  
Head back down to the intersection and take a left.  This time, use the rock 
at the end. This brings you near the entrance.  Continue heading left and 
enter the forest.

Watch a scene. You receive TOLENA'S LETTER. Exit the forest.

Watch a scene. You receive a HEAL HERB. Head downstairs (now is a good time to 
synthesize the Nymph and Uru Cores, and as Viese says, these are valuable 
items and not to be wasted) exit Viese's house for a short scene. Head to the 
exit of Noir, but speak with Yach first.  He asks you for a new item, Manatini 
x10, which you won't have at the moment.  But he gives you the WEATHER REPORT, 
which allows Viese to make a Dark Lightning Cloud.

Exit Noir, and enter the new area, Aquitto Spring.

Follow the path in Aquitto Spring to the intersection, and continue left.  
Open the chest here for  750 COLE.  Head back and take a right. In the next 
intersection, head up the screen, braking the Wood crystal, and open the chest 
at the end for a BLUE MANA. Head back and continue down the screen at the 
intersection. Soon you come upon another, to the south is a Poison Ball for 
Mana, so continue right here, and head south at the next intersection (to the 
right is a Water Crystal, if you need it.) Shatter the Poison and Wood 
Crystals here and head east across the bridge to the next intersection.

This time, head right and you soon come upon yet -another- intersection.  To 
the left you'll find two Illusion Crystals, and to the right the screen 
changes. Remember the location where the screen changes!  You'll be coming 
back here soon.  Head back to the bridge and go south, following the path all 
the way to a new, darker area.

This is the land of Jiptus, and this the "literal" Aquitto Spring, according 
to the NPCs. Take a right at the first intersection to obtain a DARK MANA, and 
then head south to the new area.  Speak with Jiptus.  Head back to the bridge 
in the original screen of Aquitto Spring and take two rights to change your 
screen. Examine the Lithograph and then exit Aquitto Spring.

Note: You should speak to Lutanus in the Temple Library for a short scene.  it 
is optional, though, so you are in no way obligated to do it.

In the Eden Temple, speak with Kreuz. Now head back to Noir and speak to Yach. 
You need to give Yach the Yugen Diary Volume 2.  This is found in the Wetlands 
if you didn't get it earlier. Yach gives you YACH'S NOTES, which allows you to 
create Rainbow Cloth. This is required, as it allows you to decipher the 
Lithographs.  Immediately head back to the Workshop and have Viese create one 
of these items. Only make one, as Viese initializes it.

With a Rainbow Cloth in hand, head back to Aquitto Spring (note that you can 
get some Moon Stones on the ground near the chests in the area now) and head 
back to the stone.  Use a Rainbow Cloth on it and then head back into the 
Spring to speak with Jiptus. You receive the POISON GEM.

Head back to Viese's Workshop. Watch a scene, and you receive another HEAL 
HERB.

Characters: Felt, Gray, Fee, Noin, Poe
Key Items: Book of Hermes, No Name 1, Lumlia the Knight, Lost Item, Stone Gem, 
Mana Power: Power
Items: Angel Feather
Harvested Items: Red Ore x6 (Yellow Rock), Red Legien x4 (Red Rock), Red 
Legien x6 (Red Rock), Red Legien x8 (Red Rock), Silver Legien x4 (White Rock), 
Moon Stone x6 (Green Rock), Moon Stone x8 (Green Rock), Red Ore x7 (Yellow 
Rock), Gravity Stone x3 (Yellow Rock), Gravity Stone x2 (Yellow Rock), Gravity 
Stone x4 (Yellow Rock), Red Legien x7 (Red Rock), Ice Stone x5 (Green Rock)
Elemental Items: Stone Crystal x4 (+16 Stone)

Enter the city of Grand for a short scene. There's a shop on this first screen 
(two actually) but continue right onto the next screen. Watch a scene here and 
continue right onto the next screen.  There's nothing to do here yet, so head 
south to yet another screen.

In the park, speak to the man at the far side for a short scene. Now, head 
back and speak with Theresa for another short scene.  You need to bring 
Theresa some Goat Milk and a Moon Stone.  Moon Stones and incredibly common, 
and Goat Milk can be bought in stores. After you have these two item, speak to 
Theresa again and give the items to her.

Watch a scene and head over and speak with Duvine again. You receive the BOOK 
OF HERMES. This allows Viese to create the Key of Hermes. Now, switch to Viese 
immediately through the same point.

===============
Have Viese create a Key of Hermes. Only create one, however, as Viese 
initializes the item.  This is a very important item. Watch a short scene 
after Viese creates the Key of Hermes. This item opens Silver Chests.

First, have Viese open the chest upstairs in her house. You receive the key 
item NO NAME 1, which allows you to create an Uni. Now, exit Viese's House and 
enter the Historical Society. You'll find the key item LUMLIA THE KNIGHT here, 
which allows Viese to create Blue Bracers.

Now, head to the Eden Temple and take an immediate right.  In the Stone Mana 
area, open the door with a Key and head into the next area. Follow the path 
here, and use the Flay Hammer on the yellow rock for RED ORE x6. Use it on the 
three Red Rocks here for RED LEGEIN x4, RED LEGIEN x6, and RED LEGIEN x8. The 
White Rock has SILVER LEGEIN x4. Continue left down the path until you reach 
an intersection.  Take the south path here to read the Lithograph (of Stone) 
with a Rainbow Cloth.  Head north to find some more rocks to use a Flay Hammer 
on.  You receive MOON STONE x6, MOON STONE x6, RED ORE x7, GRAVITY STONE x3 
and finally a GRAVITY STONE x2.  The chest contains the Key item LOST ITEM, 
which allows Viese to create the Meteor.

head back to the intersection and take the left path.  Soon you reach another 
intersection.  Continue left here to reach two more rocks.  You receive 
GRAVITY STONE x4 and RED LEGIEN x7 for breaking them.  Go back and take the 
southern path.

In the new area, break the Green Rock for ICE STONE x5, and speak with the 
Mana at the end. Give him a Glow Lamp (you should have a few of these from 
earlier in the game) and he makes a pact with you. You obtain the STONE GEM.  
Head out of the Stone Mana's Holy Ground and go back to Noir.

Enter Viese's workshop. At this point, you should have the items to create the 
Meteor, which she Initializes. The other items you may be missing for now.

Switch back to Felt at this point.  Note that you can head back to 
the "Desert" (not the big one, the small one you originally appeared in) and 
you can open a chest here with the Key of Hermes to receive the ANGEL FEATHER.
Also, open the chest in Grand with the Key of Hermes to obtain the MANA POWER: 
POWER, which allows Viese to create the Zuvelk Core.

Note: The Angel Feather is a very nice item and should be equipped on Fee or 
Noin immediately.

Head back to Grand and enter one of the buildings on the original screen. A 
Shopkeeper in here says that she needs your help.  After a scene, exit Grand.  
Though the Mist Canyon has opened up, let's explore the other area before this.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                          ~~~ Grand Highway ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Felt, Gray, Fee, Noin, Poe
Enemies: None
Bosses: None
Key Items: Manners 101
Items: None
Harvested Item: Pure Water (Barrel), Pure Water (Barrel), Tingleberry x3 
(Twisty), Tingleberry x2 (Twisty), Tingleberry (Twisty), Yadok Fungo x2 (Box), 
Tingleberry (Twisty), Tingleberry x2 (Twisty), Tingleberry x3 (Twisty) 
Elemental Items: Water Crystal x2 - From Wonder Grow (+16 Water), Fire 
Crystal - From Wonder Grow (+16 Fire), Illusion Crystal - From Wonder Grow 
(+16 Illusion), Barrel (+3 Wood), Box (+3 Wood), Wood Crystal - From Wonder 
Grow (+16 Wood)

This area is filled to the brim with items. At the entrance, jump up to the 
left and examine the barrels for a PURE WATER from each. Just south of the 
entrance are some plants to use your Yugdore Water and Wonder Grow on, and you 
obtain TINGLEBERRY x3, TINGLEBERRY x2, TINGLEBERRY, and you reveal an Illusion 
Crystal, Fire Crystal, and a Water Crystal.

Now, head all the way right on this original screen until you exit the area.  
This open a path to the Dragon's Nest.  Don't bother entering it, but you'll 
go there later.  Re-enter the Highway.

Now, head to the central portion and go south down the screen.  This is a more 
open screen than the last one.  head to the far right on this screen and 
you'll find a few boxes and a barrel.  Examine them to find some YADOK FUNGO 
x2. Head south a bit from here and open the chest for the MANNERS 101, which 
allows Viese to create the Comet Gem. Exit the screen south here and you open 
a path to the Dark Forest.  Once again, ignore this path and re-enter the 
area.  Head back to the central portion of this screen, and use your Yugdore 
Water and Wonder Grow on the plants here for a TINGLEBERRY, TINGLEBERRY x2, 
and TINGLBERRY x3.  You also reveal a Water and Wood Crystal.

At the northwestern side of this area (the far left) you'll see an exit.  Take 
this, and you'll open up a path to the Imperial Camp.  Once again, ignore the 
area. 

You've done pretty much all you can in the Highway for now.

Now is a good time to switch to Viese and create a few new items. Now that you 
have Tingleberries, you can create Blue Bracers. This item does take some 
decently rare items (Fresh Glowgrass) though. You should also be able to 
create a Comet Gem.  If you don't have any Comet Stones, you can buy one from 
Melona for 1000 Cole. This will allow you to create a Divine Shield later, 
when you have a new Mana.

With this done, head into the Mist Canyon.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Legien x4 (White Rock), Ice Stone x5 (Green Rock), Ice Stone x6 (Green Rock), 
Ice Stone x6 (Green Rock)
Elemental Items: None

Note: Be careful of multiple Jin enemies in this dungeon.  They can be quite 
strong, and you can only damage them with Felt or magic.  

This is quite an annoying dungeon, as it will be hard to see at times. Follow 
the rather straightforward path until you reach an intersection. Head up and 
jump to the upper level.  At the next intersection, head into the cave and 
open the chest in here for THE NEW ELEMENT Key item, which allows Viese to 
create the Diselement. Exit the Cave, and continue right. At the next 
intersection, take a right and continue onto the next screen.

In the new area, follow the path right and use the Flay Hammer on the Brown 
and Green Rocks for RED LEGIEN x7 and ICE STONE x4.  Head down over the bridge 
and break the next rocks for SILVER LEGIEN x4 and ICE STONE x5. Continue down 
this screen to the next one.

You encounter an intersection almost immediately.  Head south down it to the 
lower level, and follow it left. On this new screen follow the path and open 
the chest here for a LIGHTNING BRAND. use a Flay Hammer on the rocks for ICE 
STONE x6 and ICE STONE x5. Now head back the way you came onto the previous 
screen. Follow the path on the lower right as far as possible (ignore the 
intersections) to the exit.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                           ~~~ Claire Village ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Felt, Gray, Fee, Noin, Poe
Key Items: None
Items: Pure Water, Comet Stone
Harvested Items: Silver Legien x4 (White Rock), Red Legien x4 (Red Rock), Red 
Legien x6 (Red Rock)
Elemental Items: Wood Crystal - From Wonder Grow (+16 Wood), Fire Crystal - 
From Wonder Grow (+16 Fire), Air Crystal - From Wonder Grow (+16 Air)

This city is rather small. Immediately head left and break the three rocks to 
the far side for SILVER LEGIEN x4, RED LEGIEN x4, and RED LEGIEN x6. You can 
find some PURE WATER in the Well just north of here. Head through the central 
area of the town to the far right of the screen and use the Wonder Grow on 
the  plants here for MAGI GRASS x3, MAGI GRASS x4, a Wood Crystal, an Air 
Crystal, and a Fire Crystal.  Enter the house on the right to obtain a COMET 
STONE. 

Now, exit and enter the house on the left. Speak with the two NPCs in here for 
a scene. Exit the house and head up the screen to speak to Fee. AFter she 
rejoins, head down the the very lower right corner of the town to speak to 
Gray. Watch a scene.  You are meant to lose this battle, as Flare Cannon will 
decimate you. Even if you somehow get lucky and block it (it is possible) 
damaging him is practically impossible as he has a large amount of HP, lick 
the Chaos battle previously. Watch a scene.

Your party gets back together.  Now exit Claire. All sorts of new areas open 
up.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                            ~~~ Nelvia Spring ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Felt, Gray, Fee, Noin, Poe
Enemies:  Master Pig, Vulture, Puni, Red Puni, Falcon Hawk, Shadowgirl
Bosses: None
Key Items: Slaith Fashion
Items: Phoenix Quill, Dark Mana
Harvested Item: Comet Stone x2 (White Rock), Dragon Bone x2 (Red Rock), Silver 
Legien x7 (White Rock)
Elemental Items: None

Though there are quite a few locations to choose from, this one is the best to 
go to first, and it may look familiar. Follow the path left at the 
intersection and head to the next screen.

On this new screen, head across the bridge and use a Key of Hermes to open the 
chest here for the SLAITH FASHION, which allows Viese to create the Silver 
Armor.  Continue along the path and enter the cave.

In here, use a Flay Hammer on the rocks for COMET STONE x2, DRAGON BONE x2, 
and SILVER LEGIEN x7 (nice!).  Exit to the next screen.  Continue right out 
here, and at the intersection jump to the upper level and pick up the PHOENIX 
QUILL.  Follow this path to the right and enter the house.  Open the chest in 
here for a DARK MANA.  

Now, to get by, you need to give the NPC 6 Phoenix Quills.  Fortunately, the 
enemies in the area (the Vultures and the Falcon Hawks) drop them. After 
giving the NPC these items, head to the next screen and follow it all the way 
right for a scene.

After fixing this, exit the area (it's rather straightforward, so you can walk 
out, or use a Return Gem).


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                          ~~~ Dragon's Nest ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Felt, Gray, Fee, Noin, Poe
Enemies: Salamander, Basilisk, Virum, Uni Virum
Bosses: Elder Virium, Zombie Puni, Shadowgirl, Fly Trapper, Death Gigas, Stone 
Golem, Enchantress, Totemite, Book Eater
Key Items: Dragon Slayer Skill
Items: Dragon Blood x3
Harvested Item: None
Elemental Items: None

This area is opened up by heading east (right) from the entrance of the Grand 
Highway if you did not open it before.  Speak to the NPC in here for a scene.  
The Dragon's Den is an optional area that allows you to train.

Speak with the NPC again to start the battles.

The Elder Virium Set is rather easy.
The first battle set starts against two Salamanders and a Virum. Take out the 
Salamanders first, as they are more annoying (but weaker) and then kill the 
Virum.
The seond battle is close to the first, except with Basilisk instead of 
Salamanders.  Kill off the Basilisk first, as they are actually more dangerous 
than the Virum, even though the Virum is faster.
The third round has two Salamanders and two Basilik.  Kill off the Salamanders 
with Charge attacks and use your special abilities as soon as possible on the 
Basilisks, as they are much more dangerous.
The fourth round gives you a stronger enemy. This "Uni Virum" is alone, so 
keep using Break Attacks on him and you should be fine.  While it is faster to 
use Charge attacks, Break Attacks will be safer. 
The Final Round is against the Elder Virium. Once again, keep breaking him 
rather than charging him, but once he is in the break zone focus on your 
special attacks. If he gets a turn, he has the ability to use Terra Flame, 
which does around 125 damage to all of your party members. VERY ouch.  You 
want to keep him from having a turn as much as possible.  Plus, the more you 
break him, the more experience you'll get.  Hopefully, you can get more than 
2,000 Experience from this battle when done correctly. 

You receive the DRAGON BLOOD x3 and Gray learns the Skill Dragon Slayer for 
completing this trial.

After clearing the Dragon test, you can fight many more. 

"Dragon's Den Qualifier" 
The first round pits you against 5 Red Punis. This is very very easy, 
especially with Fee's normal large range attack.
The second round pits you against two Salamanders, a Witch, and a Wood Golem.  
Get rid of the Witch as soon as possible as she is the healer, then get the 
Salamanders (they can cause the most damage in a short period of time).
Round three pits you against three Red Punis and a Vulture.  The Vulture is 
the most dangerous foe here, as it has a large range attack, so kill it first.
Round four is a bit harder, with two Totems, a Master Puni, and a Brownie.  
The Totems are mean, as they can heal, as can the Master Puni. Kill off the 
Puni first, as she is fast, then kill the rest as you can.
The final round sets you up against two Zombie Punis and two Mountain Pigs. 
None of these enemies are particularly difficult, but the Zombie Punis are a 
bit harder than the mountain pigs.

You receive 5 Puniballs for finishing up "Dragon's Den Qualifier." This also 
opens up the Novice Dragon's Den.

"Novice Dragon's Den"
The first round is rather annoying.  You are faced with three Banshees, an 
Elemental, and a Witch.  remember that only magic and Felt can kill off the 
Banshees and Elementals, so it may take a few extra rounds.  Fortunately, they 
are not aprticularly strong, but make sure to kill off the elemental first, 
she is quite a bit meaner than the Bashees.
In the second round, you are fighting against two Mountain Pigs, a Master 
Puni, and a Were Cat.  The Were Cat is the nastiest of the bunch and needs to 
be killed immediately.
In the third round you face off against two Zombie Punis, two Ice Punis, and a 
Master Pig.  The Master Pig needs to be killed first, and then the Ice Punis. 
Not abnormally difficult, but the enemies have made a jump in HP.
The fourth round is a bit more dangerous. A Baphy and three Assassin Dolls.  
All of these are quite strong, but the Baphy is probably the worst.  Still, 
save the Baphy for last, as he is slow, and kill the Assassin dolls as soon as 
possible.
And in the final round, you are faced against two Parafungos, a Bugbear, and 
the Boss, a Shadowgirl. Immediately slaughter the Parafungos, as they have low 
HP and will cause bad status effects. Take down the Bugbear next, and then 
finally the Shadowgirl, as she is the main boss.  She has the most HP and is 
by far the strongest enemy on the screen.

You receive 5 Huffin for completeing this battle. This opens up the Standard 
Dragon's Den.

"Standard Dragon's Den"
The enemies in this level start out a bit stronger than before.  You fight a 
Gunner, two Maxwells, and a Totem.  None of these are particularly dangerous 
but they can be annoying. The Gunner has an area attack that hits everyone 
though, so you may want to kill her off first.
In Round Two, you fight two Sorceresses, a Caterpillar, and two Banshees.  Use 
magical attacks on the Banshees and take down the rest to your leisure.  This 
one is easier than the previous round.
In Round Three you fight two Stone Golems.  These are both strong enemies with 
high HP, but they are easy to kill because they are very slow. Do be careful 
of Head Toss though, it can be quite dangerous.  Use Break Attacks liberally. 
In round four you encounter a new enemy, the Blaze Element along with two Wolf 
Leaders.  Wolf Leaders are powerful on their own (they are fast) and you need 
to kill her off too. Normal attack don't work on her (much like ghost type 
enemies) but Felt's attack does.  Try Bomb Ice's for some decent damage.
The final round is strange.  You are up against 5 Fly Trappers. They have low 
HP and are clumped together so your ranged attacks can hit them.  
Unfortunately, they are very fast and they do hit for a decent amount of 
damage (around 30 a hit) and cause poison with each hit. The damage can rise 
quickly if you don't kill them off.

You receive 5 Glowgrass for finishing this battle, and you open up the 
Advanced Dragon's Den.


"Advanced Dragon's Den"
Note: This is by far the hardest one you can do at this point, so you should 
probably attempt this one last.
This time, you start off against two Stone Golems, which was the third round 
in the Standard Matches.  Keep them in Break Status and do be careful of their 
Head Toss abilitiy as it can deal quite a bit of damage.
Round two starts you off against three new enemies, called Hell Kitties.  
These are dangerous foes, much like the Were Cats.  They are fast, so don't 
bother breaking them. Charge them and use Special attacks to kill them one at 
a time.
Round three gets nasty.  You are pitted against an Elder Virium.  keep him in 
Break status at all times, and keep your HP above 150 in case he uses his 
strongest abilitiy. 
Round four gives you some more new enemies to face off against, including two 
Succubus, and a Legion paired with two Elementals.  The Succubus are very 
powerful, as is the larger Legion, so expect some deaths if you do not get rid 
of them quickly.  Use items, such as Meteors to damage everything at once.
The Final Round places you against two Bugbears, two Charons, and the boss, a 
Book Eater.  The worst part of this battle is that there are so many enemies 
and that they have ranged attacks so you will need to heal multiple 
characters.  Noin works extremely well in this battle as her special abilities 
heal everyone.  If you are low in level, this battle may take multiple 
attempts. Note that you should not even attemtp to attack the boss until you 
have gotten rid of everything else because of extremely high HP. Also, items 
like Meteors or Mega Flames work well for Crowd Control.

You receive 5 Tatalia Cotton for winning.

"The Sword Test"
The first round puts you up against four Brownies and a Baphy.  The Baphy is 
the strongest, of course, but the Bronies need to be killed off first because 
of their speed.
Round Two gives you three Gunners and a Master Thief. The Gunners all have 
area attacks, but the Master Thief heals, so kill them off however you see 
fit. 
Round Three gets rather nasty, pitting you up against two Baphys and three 
Assassin Dolls. The Assassin Dolls need to be slaughtered quickly as they have 
extremely high speed.
Round Four is a bit harder.  You have two Mercenaries, two Heavy metals, and a 
Blaze Element. The Blaze Element can not be damaged normally, so you need to 
use items, magic, or Felt's physical attack to damage it.  Try Bomb Ices to 
deal damage with items.
Round Five is a bit strange.  There are two Assassin Dolls, two Poisonous 
Fungos, and the boss, a Death Gigas. Immediately get rid of the Poisonous 
Fungos, as they cause some nasty status effects that can ruin the battle. The 
Assassin Dolls are next, and then take down the boss, who you should kill off 
with break Attacks and Specials whenever you have the chance.

You receive 5 Aihie Fungo for finishing this set.

"The Fighter Test"
Round One starts off rather easily, with two brownies, two Were Cats, and a 
Wood Golem.  The Were Cats need to go down first because of their high speed, 
and then focus on the Brownies. When facing the Golem use a lot of Breaks, as 
alone he is the most powerful of the bunch.
Two Harpys and two Baphys await you in this round.  The Harpys need to be 
slain first because they weaken you and are a bit faster than the Baphys.
Found three is a bit tougher, placing you against three Sr. Mountain Pigs.  
These enemies have high HP and physical attack power. I suggest having Noin as 
an active character in this battle so that she can be a healer.
Round four is quite nasty.  You face two Jin (which can not be damaged with 
normal attacks, only Felt and Magic), a Legion, and a Shadowgirl.  Each enemy 
in this battle is dangerous in their own right, but the Jins are particularly 
dangerous because of their high speed.  The Legion is next for death because 
he has lower HP than the Shadowgirl.
The final round has you fighting three Stone Golems.  These are not 
particularly powerful enemies by themselves but with three of them they can be 
quite dangerous.  Instead of breaking them like you would normally keep 
charing them and hope you can use powerful area attacks as soon as possible.

You receive 5 Mini Pendelooks for finishing this.

"The Light Test"
This is a magic based enemy set.
The first round makes you fight against a Witch, two Master Punis, and two 
Master Pigs. None of these are particularly dangerous but there will be a lot 
of healing going on so you need to kill them before they start healing each 
other.
Round two is a Zombie Puni, a Golden Puni, and a normal Puni.  The Zombi Puni 
is the strongest of course, but this is an easy battle.
Round three is much the same, with a lot of healing and support type enemies. 
Two Fly Trappers, two Sorceresses, and a Totem.  The Totem should be taken 
down first as he has Area Heal, the rest can be taken down at your leisure.
Round four is against two Banshee, two Hell Kitties, and a Sorceress. The 
Banshee need to be taken down with Magic and the Hell Kitty are fast anf 
furious and need to be taken down first and immediately.  Don't bother 
breaking the Kitties, as they will recover far too quickly.
In the final round you fight against an Enchantress and two Totems. Kill the 
Totems as fast as you can as they will act as healers throughout the battle.  
Do not even attempt to kill the boss before you kill off the Totems.  The 
Enchantress herself has the Refuel ability, which will heal around 600 HP!  
You need to Charge over and over again and then pound her with special 
attacks, or keep breaking her, which tends to work better.

You receive 5 String for completing this annoying set.

"The Totem Test"
Our final trial is the Totem test.
We start out with two Zombie Punis, two Fungos, and a Wood Golem.  The Zombie 
Punis and Fungos are easily disposed of, but the Wood Golem you need to keep 
in a Broken state, as he is a bit stronger than the other ones.
Round two gives you two Totems, two Fly Trappers, and a Brownie.  get rid of 
the Totems because of their area heal first, and then the Fly trappers because 
of their speed.  Leave the Brownie for last, as he is the weakest.
Round three is two Ghosts, a Salamander, and two Fungos.  This is a rather 
strange set of enemies.  Dispose of the Ghosts with magical attacks and then 
kill off the Salamander, who will deal more direct damage than the Fungos.
Round four has two Floating fish, two Witches, and a Bugbear.  The Floating 
Fish aren't really special, but the Witches can heal, and the Bugbear can 
damage an area. Nothing particularly powerful here though.
The final round you face only a single enmy, strangely.  The Totemite boss. He 
is not particularly difficult if you keep him in break status. 

You receive 5 Super Nue for winning.

After you've beaten all of these (finally!) exit the area.

If you've finished all of the Dragon Den Trials you'll probably have gained a 
few levels and may actually be overlevelled at this point, but it is better to 
be safe than sorry.

You encounter an intersection soon after you enter. This area is filled to the 
brim with intersections, so expect to be taking a lot of wrong turns if you're 
doing this place blindly.

Take a left at the entrance to come almost immediately upon another 
intersection.  Follow the path north up the screen here all the way and use a 
Key of Hermes on the locked chest to obtain the key item BOOK OF UROBORUS, 
which allows Viese to create the Uroborus Pill. Head back to the intersection 
a ways and go south.  Pick up the item on the ground here to obtain NUE x3. 
Now head back to the original intersection and take a right this time.

Now, take the southern path all the way, and jump up to the upper level and 
pick up the GRADEN SALT x2. Now, head up the left and take another left 
immediately.  Open the chest on the upper level to get a DRAGON BONE. Now, 
continue up the screen past the first intersection, and at the second 
intersection take a right.  There are three rocks here.  Use Flay hammers on 
them for RED LEGIEN x8, RED LEGIEN x7, COMET STONE x2 and you might possibly 
get a White Rock for SILVER LEGIEN x6.  After getting these items, head back 
to the left and exit this screen to the north.

On this new screen, take a left immediately.  Head left at the next 
intersection and use the Flay hammer on the rocks here for RED LEGIEN x8, DEM 
ORE x7, and finally some RED ORE x8. head back to the intersection and go up 
the screen.  Take a left here and you'll find many items to harvest with your 
Flay Hammer. You'll receive DEM ORE x7, RED LEGIEN x8, DRAGON BONE x2, a 
DRAGON BONE, and some Red legien x? (I didn't get this specific amount. . .). 
Head back to the previous intersection and take a right.  Head south all the 
way down past two intersections at the next intersection and break the rock 
here with a Flay hammer to receive SILVER LEGIEN x6. Head back up and take a 
right at the first intersection to obtain a FIRE BRAND by using a Key of 
Hermes on the chest. Now head back up to the intersection and take the next 
right.  

This leads to a save point.  Use it if you desire, and take the right path 
onto the next screen.  Down here, watch a scene.

This boss is quite powerful.  he has access to Volcano Breath, which will do 
around 70 damage to each party member.  He also has a Royal Dragon Cry which 
can cause some problems.  This ability lowers your elemental resistence, which 
is vital to your survival in this battle. You may want to equip your members 
with one of your brand new Fire Brand to help reduce damage.  Most of this 
bosses attacks hit a large range of party members and can be 

Gray will help quite a bit in this battle, especially if you have him with the 
Dragon Slayer ability and Shredding Dragon.  He will do a good 1,800 to 2,000+ 
damage per attack with this.  Unfortunately, he is quite slow and everyone 
else will probably get a few rounds before he even gets a single one round.  
He actually makes this battle quite easy.

Noin may also be very useful in this battle, as she may have a special ability 
at this point called Sucker Kick.  This ability will get her off the screen 
and into a safe zone where she can not take damage. Felt also may have a 
powerful level 3 skill at this point called Raging Strike which can allow him 
to deal a good amount of damage. Even Felt's Aura Strike will do a large 
amount of damage 

Depending on your strategy, I suggest Charging with two characters, and having 
the third (most powerful) character use their special ability or using a break 
attack trying to delay the boss as much as possible. Breaking won't do too 
much good in this battle, as the boss is very quick, but it does help when you 
are trying to save the life of some characters.  Try Fee's Divine Stun to help 
delay the boss as well.

previously).  Watch a scene here.  Exit and re-enter, and examine the table.  
Buy the Magic Snack Recipe and the Book of Troth.

After buying these items, head into the Grand Save Point.  Switch to Viese.  
At this point, it is a good idea to create 10 Manatinis  You can buy Red Wine 
from the item shop in Grand if you need to. Why 10? Because Yach asked you for 
10. When you give him these 10 items, nothing happens. . .yet. Also, make sure 
to create and Animal Cookie, as it is important.

To continue on with the game, you need to head to the Imperial Camp.  If you 
have not opened this area up yet, enter the Grand Highway and find the far 
left exit.

After a short scene in the Imperial Camp, enter the Grand Highway for a scene. 
Go down and speak with the animal. Now, you need an Animal Cookie (from the 
lady in Grand) and use it on the Beast. Now, exit the Grand Highway to the 
very very southeast to open up the Dark Forest.

Follow the path left for a short scene with the Beast. He opens a path for 
you.  Use Wonder Grow on all of the plants here for TINGLEBERRY x2, 
TINGLEBERRY x3 as well as a Wood, Water and Illusion Crystal.  Use some 
Yugodre Water of the twisty to obtain TINGLEBERRY x3.  Now, follow the far 
left path around the screen and open the chest at the end to get 1,200 COLE.  
Head back to the main area and exit to the south.

In the new area, you encounter a barely visible intersection immediately. Take 
a right and head all the way right.  Jump up to the higher level and use the 
Key of Hermes on the chest here for the key item NO NAME 2, which allows Viese 
to make some Dark Water.  Head back to the initial intersection and press 
left.  At the very top left corner of the area (it is somewhat hard to get to, 
but press along the trees to find the path) you'll find GLOWGRASS x3. Head 
south, still on the left wall and you'll find a little side area with many 
plants to use Wonder Grow on.  You obtain a SUPER NUE, SUPER NUE x2, and 
another SUPER NUE x2, as well as reveal a Water crystal, Aroma Crystal, and a 
Dark Crystal.  Now, head back right a tiny bit, and head down the central path 
down the screen.  Exit to the right.

In this new area, jump up the ledge and open that chest for a YELLOW MANA.

To get around, you're going to need a lot of animal cookies. This area may 
look familiar to you if you've played Eternal Mana. Make sure you make quite a 
few Animal Cookies and then head into the Village.  There's a shop on the left 
side of the lower level (in the hole) and you should buy the MANNERS 101: 2 
from there. This item allows Viese to create Magatama Cones.  Now jump up to 
the next level and enter the right hole.  Speak with the Orange Beast (using a 
cookie) for a scene. 

Now, head to the exit of the village (you'll need to press against the upper 
side, exiting is weird) for a scene.

Break attacks don't work too well on Galahad, so just focus on charge attacks 
only, and don't even attempt breaking, especially late in the battle when 
charging is most important.

Galahad is made for defense, and will defend a lot.  You may find yourself 
having difficulty damaging him, so don't even try using special attacks on him 
when he's defending.  Try and time it so that you do it when he's in his 
normal state.  Galahad's normal attack does a good 70 damage, which is enough 
to take down almost half of Noin, Poe, or Fee's HP. Galahad also sometimes 
uses Gaia Shake, which 

After a few rounds and enough HP has been taken down, Halahad uses Heaven's 
Light.  This ability Raises his Attack Power, Magic, Defense, and Speed, as 
well as restoring some HP.  He becomes more dangerous at this point as he is 
stronger. He will also begin recovering his HP (something of a Regen ability( 
periodically. This is very very bad.  because his Strength, Defense, and other 
stats are constantly being raised as well.  You need to kill him off as 
quickly as possible at this point with your strongest attacks.

After a few "Heaven's Light" this battle becomes quite annoying.  Also, expect 
it to be quite time consuming, since he starts recovering quite a bit of HP 
over and over again. The key is being able to do more damage than he can heal, 
and more quickly.  This can be very difficult, so if you're having problems, 
try reseting and trying again.

Watch a scene.  Exit Viese's house and watch a scene here, and give Coco the 
items needed. Now, exit Noir, and head into the Eden Temple. Speak with Kreuz 
for a scene.  Immediately open the chest when you regain control for another 
scene. You receive the DREAM GEM. Now, go up the ladders and examine the 
bookshelves.  On the top level there is an ALCHEMIC HISTORY, which is very 
important and allows Viese to create a grappling hook. In the second level 
there is another book to read as well.  Exit this hidden library and the Eden 
Temple.

Go back to Noir, and enter Viese's workshop. You receive VIESE'S RECIPE, which 
allows you to make a Viese's Charm.  

Now, create a Grappling Hook with Diemia (your Stone Mana), and since you can, 
you may want to have Faustus create a Divine Shield. Viese Initializes both of 
these items.  This Grappling Hook allows you to access many new areas that you 
could not before.

In Eden, you can use the Grappling Hook twice.  Head to Marmel Forest and use 
the Grappling Hook after taking a left at the first intersection.  Jump down 
this path and open the chest here for the MIRACLE STONE item, which allows 
Viese to create a Gravity Crystal.  

The second is to get to the entrance of Weathervane Hill.

Switch to Viese (probably from Claire village) and exit her Workshop. Watch a 
scene. Exit Noir, and enter the new Weathervane Hill. Note that you can see an 
optional scene with Lutanus if you head to the Library in the Eden Temple.

In this new area, follow the path right (breaking the two crystals on the way) 
and use a Grappling Hook to enter the main area.  Use Flay Hammers on the two 
rocks to the left for AERONIUM x3, and AERONIUM x4. Now follow the path right 
(breaking the crystal) onto the next screen.

Take the floating rock to the new area and break the crystal. Take the next 
rock. Continue to the next rock again to reach a larger island. Break the 
crystals and the bush on the island for elements here (there's quite a few) 
and use two Yugdore Waters on the Twisties for SUPER NUE x2 and SUPER NUE x3. 
Open the chest for a GREEN MANA.  Head to the bottom right of the area and 
take the rock to a new area.  Here, use a Rainbow Cloth on the lithograph to 
translate it.

Now there is an intersection to take. Take the upper left path here (near the 
lithograph) over two rocks and break the two crystals if necessary.  Take the 
next stone to a larger island.  Use the Flay Hammer on the rocks here for a 
LARGE AERONIUM, AERONIUM x2, AERONIUM x3, and AERONIUM x4.  Open the chest 
here for a GLOWING MANA. Head back three islands to the intersection.

Take the lower left path to a new island. Follow the right path here, go up to 
the next level with a Hook, and exit to the far north (ignoring the rock for 
now).  Watch a scene here. You receive the WIND GEM. Head back outside, and 
take a left, and use that rock.  Break the poison crystal here and continue to 
the next island.  Open the chest at the top of the area for the STORM, which 
allows Viese to create the Lightning Rod. From here, take the last rock and 
exit to the left which will be the entrance.  At the entrance, watch a scene. 
You receive some HEXI GLASS.  Now, exit the area.

Watch a scene. Exit the house and take a left.  This path was blocked before, 
but now you can enter the door.  Open the chest in here for a BLUE MANA.

Now, exit the Hidden Village.  Though a new path has opened up, let's not go 
there quite yet. Since we have the Grappling Hook, we should go get a few 
extra items we missed before earlier in the game.

In the Holy Path, you will find the AMANITIA'S DIARY, which allows Viese to 
create an Amanita Needle. Also, head back down to the lower level and you'll 
find another place to hook onto slightly east (on this same screen). Open the 
chest here for an ICE BRAND. 
Now, head to the Forest of Ocean Mist. In here, you'll find a place to use a 
Grappling Hook. There's a LENEAL on the upper level, which allows Viese to 
create a Sage's Feather Pen.
The last item to get is in the North Grand Plains. Enter from the Forest of

Note: In this area, killing off the Enchanstresses will be a pain.  Especially 
when they are paired with Legions or other enemies.  I don't suggest trying to 
kill them first, but instead focusing your attacks on the weaker enemies, and 
just charging them until you are strong enough to pound the Enchantress to 
death with special abilities.

FOllow the path left to the intersection, and continue left.  Jump up and pick 
up the OLD YADOK FUNGO x3 up here. Head back to the intersection and go 
south.  You encounter a second intersection soon after, where you should take 
a left (as the right path is inaccessable at the moment) once again.  Follow 
this path to another intersection shortly after, where you should continue 
down the southern path.  use the Grappling Hook at the bottom of the path and 
open the chest up here for NEKO'S WORK, which allows Viese to create 
the 'Refuel' item.  Head back to the intersection and go left some more over 
the bridges and onto the next screen.

In the new area, watch a scene.  Head back a bit when you regain control and 
use an Animal Cookie on that Mystic Beast for a tip. Also, head back right up 
the screen from the entrance of this area to obtain a DARK MANA.  Now, head 
back to where you were after the cutscene (just by Mitsue) and follow the path 
right. Keep heading northeast through this screen, and soon you'll come upon 
some plants.  Use the Yugdore Water on the first twisty to obtain PEARLBERRY 
x3. Continue along and use some Wonder Grow on the three plants to reveal a 
Water, Air, and Illusion Crystal.  Use Yugdore Water on the final Twisties for 
PEARLBERRY x2 and PEARLBERRY x3. Exit the area, and a new area opens up.

of here, press against the forest and you'll find a hidden path, which leads 
to a chest you need to open using the Key of Hermes. You receive another ANGEL 
FEATHER.Head back to the main path. Follow the path and soon you'll come upon 
a save point, which is good to use, but open the chest that holds the YELLOW 
MANA beforehand.

Now, continue right and at the intersection head south. Examine the barrels 
here to get a GOAT MILK along with two barrels to destroy.  Head back up and 
exit to the far left. Watch a scene on this screen.

Whether this is actually a boss battle is debatable. The enemies are actually 
weaker than most of the normal foes you face at this point HP-wise, but it is 
most definitely a story-based battle.

Start with the Puni Punist, and kill him off with two or three charge attacks. 
Next, have any character use a special attack on the Knight, while your other 
characters continue charging on the Princess.  Finally, after killing off the 
Princess, use your special attacks on the King to finish the battle.

This is a really really easy battle, for some strange reason. 
******************************************************

Watch a scene.

Now, head down the path to the left and take the far left exit .  On this new 
screen, you'll encounter an intersection with two barrels two destroy. Head 
right back towards the screen you were just on, and open the chest with a Key 
of Hermes.  You receive a CURSED MAN, which allows Viese to create a Demon 
Ring.  Head back to the previous screen and continue left all the way, and 
break a few of the boxes at the far side.  Behind them you'll find a chest 
that contains a DRAGON HORN.  Head all the way back to the large screen. 

Next, take the path slightly above this one (the sign says "Regenbogen").  On 
this screen, take the lower path at the intersection and jump up the mountain 
at the central area.  Open the chest at the top for some DRAGON BLOOD. Head a 
bit left from here, and press south against the forest. In here, you'll find 
quite a few plants to use your Wonder Grow and Yugdore Water on.  Use Yugdore 
Water on the Twisties for TINGLEBERRY x2 and another TINGLEBERRY x2. Use the 
Wonder Grow to obtain a FRESH GLOWGRASS, FRESH GLOWGRASS x2, and another FRESH 
GLOWGRASS x2.  You also reveal a Wood Crystal, Water Crystal, and a Fire 
Crystal.  Head back up north to the main area and continue north and left to 
the exit of this area.  

This opens a path to East Regenbogen.  Immediately re-enter the plains the way 
you exited.  Head back to the central, large area at the middle of the plains, 
and head to the top right corner.  This path, which says Alha village, is 
rather straightforward.  Take a right at the intersection and pick up the 
FLOUR x3. Head back to the intersection and go left.  Follow the path to the 
next large intersection and take the south path.  Use the Wonder Grow on the 
two plants to reveal a Sound and an Illusion Crystal. Take the left path and 
open the chest for 620 COLE. The exit to the area is at the top left.

with Coco. Head back and switch to Felt.

Back in Alha Village, head up the screen and examine the well to obtain some 
PURE WATER. Now, head all the way to the far right of the screen and jump up 
the ledges.  Open the chest here for NEKO'S WORK 2, which allows Viese to 
create the Heal Bulb.  Also, near the house by the well, there is a ledge to 
jump up.  On this upper level, use an Animal Cookie on the Beast.  After he 
gives you a tip, enter the house on the far left and speak with the woman.

left (ignore the right, there's nothing to do there for now) and jump to the 
upper level. Take another right here.  Use a Rainbow Cloth on the Lithograph. 
Head back left and continue jumping up to the upper level.

Soon, you'll come upon some plants to use Wonder Grow on, as well as some 
bushes to destroy.  There are four crystals to shatter.  Also, use an Animal 
Cookie on the beast. Continue left over the bridge, and fall down the ledges.

Watch a short scene. You are forced into a battle with two Imperial Soldiers.  
This is not a particularly difficult battle, and is no different than an 
average random encounter.  In fact, it might be easier than some, as the 
enemies do not have the highest HP and can not heal (annoying Enchantress!).

After the battle, enter the fort.  There's an intersection immediately. 
There's nothing to the left and right, so continue through the fort (there's 
quite a few enemies on this screen, and the encounter rate is insane) and 
enter the first door on the left of the screen.  In here, you'll find a Box to 
examine for OLD MAGI GRASS x3, as well as a chest to open for a DARK MANA. 
Head back out and onto the next screen. On this next screen, enter the left 
door, and examine the barrels for some FOUL WATER. Go back out. At the 
intersection, head up to the next screen for a scene. Go back a bit, and head 
right and down the stairs here.  

On the lower level, open the chest here for a DRAGON BONE. Continue down, 
cross the bridge and head up the path to the next screen.  Continue down the 
path here and examine the barrels on the other side for a PURE WATER from each.

Back upstairs, head up the next set to the top level. Continue right up here 
to yet another screen. At the immediate intersection here, head south and 
through the door (there's nothing but a NPC to the north). In this new area, 
head all the way to the south and enter the door to the left. There's a chest 
in here to be opened with the Key of Hermes, and it holds an ILLUSION 
BRACELET. Head back outside and go north, entering the first door on the 
left.  Immediately enter the next door, and examine the four barrels in here 
for a PURE WATER from three of them, and an ALE from the last.

Use the save point and head to the top.

******************************************************
Boss: General, Imperial Support Soldier x2, Imperial Guard
Experience: 2,400
Skill: 40
Items: Goat Milk, Blue Mana
Cole: 1,300

It's been a while since you've faced a multi-target boss. These tend to be a 
bit easier than the stronger bosses, but you also have more attacks to deal 
with.  Don't both breaking unless you are in trouble HP-wise.

The Imperial Support Troops need to be killed off immediately.  They act as 
healers and will raise the status of their allies. Focus all of your charge 
attacks on a single one of the Support Soldiers until it falls, and then use 
your Special Abilities on the second one and it should fall quickly.   Try 
using powerful abilities such as Endless Blade (or Divine Stun is nice as 
well), Sucker Kick (Or Combo Attack), Raging Strike (Or Raging Wave), 
Shredding Dragon,  or any of Poe's Area of effect abilities.  It is very very 
important to take down these two Support troops quickly, before they boost the 
enemies to an attack power above that which you can handle.

With only the General and Imperial Guard against you, the battle is a bit 
easier, but it can be more difficult depending on how many boosts the Support 
Troops got off while they were still alive. The General is quite nasty by 
himself.  He can do over 100 damage with his Gnash ability, so keep everyone 
over 130 HP at all times, so that they can survive the subsequent attacks if 
necessary. Use Break Attacks on the General when you feel the need, as it 
helps considerably.   The boss also has an incredibly nasty Slash Wave attack, 
which may do around 100 to all over your characters.  Fortunately, this attack 
has a charge time, so you can prepare yourself with healing and Breaking when 
necessary. Your Refuel Alchemy item will help considerably here.
******************************************************

Watch a scene. You receive the VISA. Exit to the left and open the chest out 
here to obtain the DRAGON SLAYER TALES, which allows Viese to create a Dragon 
Fang Earring.

Head back down to the area just before the underground and enter the area that 
was previously inaccessable (because of the battle).  Enter the first door on 
the left in here for a YELLOW MANA. Head back out and enter the second door 
and pick up the WAX x3.  Exit to the right for a scene.

When you regain control, head back into the Fort. Head south and watch an 
awesome scene. 

******************************************************
Boss: Chaos
Experience: 2,400
Skill: 50
Items: None
Cole: 1,000

Unlike the previous battle with Chaos, this one is winnable.  Unlike many 
single target boss battles, you'll want to avoid Break Attacks in this, as 
Chaos is an extremely fast foe, and will act very very often.  Break Attacks 
will not do much, so Charging will end up better.

Chaos's main attack can do a good 70-100 damage to a single character.  He 
also has "Crimson Ambition" as well still, which raises each and every one of 
his atats. Like galahad, Chaos's Crimson Ambition is a timed status, which 
acts every few rounds separately from the boss himself.  Therefore, Chaos can 
still attacks and still do his Crimson Ambition. There's not a whole lot you 
can do about this other than to use your strongest attacks on him.  The worst 
part is that it raises his defense and attack power, so that he will be 
stronger, and your attacks will end up weaker, constantly.  This means you 
need to keep attacking as much as possible and dealing as much damage.  
Another reason why it is important to avoid Break Attacks and use only Charge 
Attacks, to help finish the battle faster.

Because Chaos is fast, make sure you heal whenever anyone's HP gets even 
moderately low.  Also note that because of Crimson Ambition, Chaos gets faster 
as the battle goes on, so you need to become more and more cuatious after each 
battle round.

watch a scene with Fee.

Now head to Altena Church with Fee for another scene.

After this scene, you automatically head back to the fort for yet another

As you enter the area and watch the scene.  head immediately back a bit and 
examine the box here for SPOILED MEAT x2. head back down the screen to the

ANKH. Head back to the previous screen and head south at the intersection this 
time. On this screen, head all the way south and press X to take a boat ride.  
On this island, use an Animal Cookie on the Mystic Beast. Open the chest near 
him for a GREEN MANA.

Take the boat back to the main area and head back up the previous screen.

As you might expect, this is a marketplace.  Head right from the entrance and 
enter the building here.  Speak with the Merchant.  I suggest buying the 
MYSTICAL BEAST and the HOPES AND DREAMS from him. These allow Viese to create 
the Crystaleavy and the Sun and Wind Wing.  Exit this building, and head all 
the way left into the far building.  Speak to the man inside here.  Note that 
while he doesn't trigger any new events, he does allow you to buy some items, 
such as Silver Water and Frozen Rain, that you need for Recipes.

After speaking with everyone, head out of the Market, and the path to Riese 
Palace opens up. But sicne you can't enter the Palace quite yet, head back up 
to the Back Alley for a scene.

Note: Now that you have some Silver Water, now is a good time to switch to 
Viese and start making items.  Create a Silver Acid or two, a Crystaleavy, and 
a Sun and Wind Wing. You should also be able to create a Dark Water now that 
you have the Silver Water, and also with the Silver Acid, you should be able 
to create the Diselement. Note that if you use a White Crystal instead of a 
Red Crystal in the creation of a Crystaleavy, you can create a new item, the 
Crystalite. After creating these items, switch back to Felt.

In the Back Alley speak with the Bartender for a short scene. Exit the area.

Note: Remember to buy the Key Item from the Back Alley if you did not earlier 
in the game, as 4,000 Potch shouldn't be a huge amount to you at this point.

Open the one to obtain the INTELLECT, which allows Viese to create Philosophic 
Ash. Head back out, and follow the path right all the way down the screen.

At the end, there's an intersection.  Take the left-hand door here, and 
examine the picture on the far wall for a scene.Now, examine the book on the 
bookshelf, and exit.  Head through the door at the far end, and watch another 
scene. After seeing these two scenes, speak with Tolena in the hallway to exit 
the palace. You automatically head back to the Back Alley.

states, you first need to re-visit Alha Village (which you may have tried 
already in the previous chapter, but to no avail).

Exit the Fort and head to Alha.

Watch a scene with Mitsue, and then head to the house in the top left corner 
of the area. Give "Pops" a Mega Flame and watch a scene. You receive the MY 
ULTIMATE BOMB, which allows Viese to create the Tera Flame and the Dragon Gem.

Switch to Viese and create a Dragon Gem (for battle) as well as a Tera Flame 
to continue with the game.  Also note that you can probably create the 
Philosophic Ash at this time as well. Watch a scene after creating the Tera 
Flame.

Switch back to Felt.

Note that before we continue the game, there's a lot of things we can do with 
our new Tera Flame.

=====================
In the Holy Path, head to the area near the end (there's a bridge) and take a 
left. Shatter the rock here with your Tera Flame. This opens a path to 
the 'Sealed Ruin' for Later. Ignore them for now.
Head into the Mist Canyon from the Claire Village side and keep taking rights 
all the way up the screen to the next.  use a Tera Flame on the rock up here.  
Continue along the path here to obtain the GARGOYLES MIRROR.
In Onuki Cave, enter from the Altena Church side and head to the northwest 
corner of the first area and shatter the rock.  There's a Mystic Beast here 
who gives you a tip, but no items.
Enter the Grand Highway from the Grand side, and head straight down as if to 
the Dark Forest.  There is a rock to destroy here for you. Follow the twisting 
path here to obtain the MANA POWER: DARK, which allows Viese to create the 
Plua Core.
Head to the South Lake Midgard.  There's a rock to destroy at the first path 
to the left which leads to a chest that contains 1120 COLE.
Lastly, we go to the South Grand Plains. Enter from the Regenbogen Side and 
head into the large central area.  Head slightly south and enter the far left 
area. Shatter the rock in this area and exit.  This opens a path to Mt. Gelad.

To continue with the game enter the Dark Forest 2 from the South Grand Plains 
side. Follow the path left to where Mitsue was once standing and use the Tera 
Bomb to open the path to Zwital Village. Before entering though, immediately 
go back into Dark Forest 2. 

Head south to the previous screen from the Zwital Village entrance.  Ignore 
the first intersection and continue right in this area.  At the second 
intersection, head south and use the Tera Flame on the large rock.  Open the 
chest here for the MYSTIC BEAST 2, which allows you to create the Flute of 
Cerberus.  Now exit the Dark Forest 2 and enter the Zwital Village.

Watch a scene. Speak with the lady with Pink Ears near the entrance to learn 
about the ruins. Enter the building right near her, and you'll find a shop.  
Buy the Key Items FAIRY TALES, FAIRY LIFE 1 and FAIRY LIFE 2 from here.   
You'll need a good amount of money though, 11,500 Cole.  You learn how to make 
Fairy Tea, Dark Fairy Clothes, and the Dark Fairy Hat.

Exit this shop and head right.  Near the far end of town, there is another 
catgirl who sells items.  She sells the REVIVAL and the BLACKSMITH ADVANCED, 
but once again, you're going to need quite a bit of money to buy them, around 
8,500 Cole.  You learn how to make the Altena Jar and the Quicksilver Ankh.

Note: If you don't have enough money to buy all of these items, going 
Harvesting is a good idea.  Try to get some Silver Legien, Moon Stone, and 
Super Nue to sell to shops to make money.  You can also fight to make some 
money.

In the last building, you can buy some Mana Items.  They are expensive, but 
they are useful in making rare items.  I suggest not buying these items until 
you have bought the expensive recipes first.

After speaking with everyone, exit the area.

Note: Before entering this next dungeon, switch to Viese. You should be able 
to create the Flute of Ceberus, a Fairy Tea (which allows you to grow Bushes, 
much like a Yugdore Water and a Wonder grow), and the Quicksilver Ankh.  You 
might also possibly be able to create one of the two Dark Fairy outfits.  If 
you don't have any Groovecubes, you need to use an Item Wish on a normal Puni 
type enemy to obtain them.

Another Note: If you haven't already, head to the Imperial Camp.  There are 
two chests here to open, which contain a GREEN MANA and an ANKH.  Nothing 
imperative to continuing the game, but hey every little bit helps!

Note: Like before, be wary of the Enchantresses.  You should probably try to 
kill them off last because of their higher HP. Just keep building up your 
Charge Power and then let loose once it is high enough so that it hopefully 
kills her.  Also, with the Fungo Kings, you can kill them, but it is somewhat 
difficult with their Sleep Status obsession.  They give a -LOT- of Cole 
though, so it is worth it.

Follow the large path, and right before the first intersection, press against 
the wall to the left and open the chest through the partially-invisible path 
to obtain a DRAGON SHIELD. At the intersection, take a left, and press south.  
There are all sorts of plants to use your goodies on here. You will receive 
YADOK FUNGO x4 from the Wonder Grow, but the rest of them hold Crystals. The 
two Bushes here contain TRIFFID x2 and TRIFFID x3.  Head back left and exit to 
the next screen.

Here, follow the path left, and head south when possible.  Go right and open 
the chest when you can to obtain a YELLOW MANA. Press against the north wall 
here, and as you're turning south, give that Mystic Beast an Animal Cookie. He 
gives you a nice tip. Continue south and circle back left.  Open the chest 
with a Key of Hermes to obtain the MILITARY TACTICS, which allows Viese to 
create the Power Shield. Jump down to the left and follow this new path to the 
intersection, and head south.  There are many plants to use some Yugdore Water 
and Wonder Grow on.  The Wonder Grows give you YADOK FUNGO x3, YADOK FUNGO x4, 
a Water Crystal, and a Wood Crystal. The Twisties give you PEARLBERRY x3, 
PEARLBERRY x3, and PEARLBERRY x2.

There are two exits to this area.  At the far northeast, you'll find an exit 
to the Forest itself, which leads to the Graveyard. The exit near the Plants 
(to the south) leads to the Dark Spring.

At this point, we'll be entering the Graveyard.

It's a straight path to the second screen initially. On the second screen, 
watch a scene. Head right and examine the green thing on the ground to 
teleport into the main area.

In this real area, there's an immediate intersection. Head right up the screen 
and pick up the PHOENIX QUILL. Follow this path south down the screen and then 
to the right. Head through the teleporter and follow this short path.  Open 
the chest in here to obtain a GREEN MANA. Head back to the previous screen, 
and follow the path back up to the entrance.  Take a left, and jump down to 
the lower levels.  Head left when possible and take the teleporter here.  
Follow this little side path and open the chest here to obtain the LIGHTNING 
BRAND.  Head back to the main area and continue down the screen.  Pick up the 
LIGHTNING STONE x2 on the ground (which will finally allow you to create an 
item~!) and head left down the next path and through the teleporter.

In this next new area, you'll find it to be rather small, but there are four 
teleporters.  The one just left of the entrance leads to a chest that you need 
to open with the Key of Hermes, and it contains an ANGEL FEATHER. Head back 
and take the teleporter to the right of the intersection and pick up the 
LIGHTNING STONE on the ground.  Head back and take the lower left path at the 
very bottom of the svreen (near the Angel Feather) and use the Key of Hermes 
on the chest here to obtain the SLAITH HISTORY, which allows Viese to create 
the Slaith Dress.  head back to the main intersection and take the path to the 
lower right intersection and take this teleporter.

On this new screen follow the path left and at the intersection, continue left 
and follow this path to the very end.  Open the chest here and obtain 1,200 
COLE. Head back to the intersection and take the southern path to find a save 
point.  Continue down this screen to the south and approach the wall here for

******************************************************
Boss: Slaith's Reincarnation

Skill: 130
Items: Spirit Protect, Comet Stone
Cole: 2,000

This boss is going to be quite nasty, and may take a few attempts if you do 
not have the best gear. This boss has an extremely large amount of HP, so 
prepare for the battle to take a while.

His main attacks include an "Angry Blow" which does 110+ to a single party 
member. He also has the support ability "Quick" which will allow him to act 
often.  Because of Quick, you're going to have a hard time keeping yourself 
healed. Like Fee, this boss has abilities like "Divine Stun" which will knock 
back your characters a bit. He also has the Ein Zecksclaw, which does around 
80-120 damage to all of your characters.  Near the end of the battle, the boss 
starts using this move over and over again, so you need to keep yourself very 
healthy.

Once the boss has lost enough HP, he starts using his Gate ability to summon 
Guardian enemies. This is a timed event, much like the Crimson Ambition was 
for Chaos.  You can't stop it, but ignoring them is bad as well.  There are 
two things you can do at this point. One is to focus all of your Charge 
Attacks on the Guardian Enemy and destroy him, while after he is gone (it 
shouldn't take longer than the amount of time it takes to summon, hopefully) 
use a Special Ability on the boss.  This will not work all the time though, 
because sometimes he gets quite powerful. The other thing to do is attack one 
or two of them, and then use an area attack on the boss (Raging Wave or 
Endless Blade work), and make it so that it hits the foes as well.  This way, 
you can hit the enemies and take down a large chunk of their HP and damage the 
boss at the same time.

Use Break Attacks to get a good advantage on the boss at the start, and switch 
back and forth from Break to Charge from character to character.  You want to 
keep the boss from acting. Once the boss starts Summoning this won't work 
though, and you'll probably want to stick with Charge attacks so that you can 
keep damaging both the boss and all of the enemies on the screen at once. 

To make this battle easier on yourself, have a lot of healing items (Heal 
Jars, and Refuels for when the boss starts spamming his Ein Zecksclaw near the 
end).  Try using your fastest characters, and avoid using characters like 
Gray, as he will get one turn to the bosses two or three. 
******************************************************

You receive the Slaith Crown and watch a scene. Fee learns Ein Zecksclaw.

Exit the area.

Before Heading to the Dark Spring (which seems to be the only area), head back 
to the Zwital Village.  Watch a scene here. 

Note: Now is a good time to switch to Viese. Note that you can probably create 
the Uroborus Pill at this time (if you don't have the Pikohammer, you can use 
an Item Wish on enemies like Brownies to obtain one).  The Urob is a harvested 
item.  With your new Lightning Stones in hand, you can create a Lightning 
Rod.  Also, by changing the last items in the recipe, you can create a Thunder 
Rod. Also, with a Thunder (Or Lightning) Rod in hand, you can create the Dark 
Lightning Cloud item.

After you are ready to continue, enter the Dark Spring. You are stuck with Poe 
and Felt for this area.

Follow the path until you reach the first intersection, and then take a left.  
Use a Flay Hammer on the rocks up here for LIGHTNING STONE x6, LIGHTNING STONE 
x8, RED LEGIEN x9, and finally MOON STONE x7.  Head back to the intersection 
and take the right path, and head north when possible.  Pick up the GOAT MILK 
x3 off the ground, and continue along this path.  Open the chest at the end 
with the Key of Hermes for the MANA POWER: EVIL, which allows Viese to create 
the Faustus Core. Head back to the intersection and go south.

Follow this path to the next intersection and head south again.  Open the 
chest down here for a short scene.  Now head right at the intersection and 
follow this path all the way to the end. Watch another scene here.

Now you need to exit the area.  It isn't that difficult, just stick to the 
left. Watch a scene at the Spring Entrance. You receive a PIGEON BLOOD.  Exit 
the area.

Enter the Moon Tower and speak to the NPC. You encounter an intersection 
almost immediately, so head right and open the chest here for a BLACK MANA. 
Head back, jump up the upper levels, and follow the path to another 
intersection. Head right at the intersection and enter the door. Use a Rainbow 
Cloth on the Lithograph here. After doing this, exit and head back to the 
intersection.

Head south here, over the bridge, and enter the large doors.
Inside the tower, head left and down the path.  Open the chest with a Key of 
Hermes and you obtain the SOUL BOOK, which allows Viese to create the 
Pendelook.  Head back up to the intersection and jump up straight in front of 
the entrance.  There's a chest here that contains an ANKH. Now follow the 
right path onto the next screen.

On this next screen, you'll see an intersection.  To the left are a few 
Crystals to destroy, so continue right. After you change screens, speak with 
Plua.  She will not join you yet.  Exit the area.

Head to Noir Town and watch a scene. Now, head to the Eden Temple Library and 
speak to Lutanus.  After speaking with Lutanus, go back to the Moon Tower and 
speak with Plua again. You receive the DARK GEM.

Exit the area.

Note: While you're in Eden, and after you've made your Pact, you might as well 
make a few items.  Make a Plua Core, a Faustus Core and a Pendelook.

head right into the next screen for a scene. Continue right and onto the next 
screen.

The enemies get a bit nastier from here on. Follow the path and jump up to the 
upper level to the left. At the intersection, head right and open the chest 
for a RED MANA. Head back to the intersection and jump up to the upper level 
to the left. Open the chest above you with a Key of Hermes for an ILLUSION 
BRACELET. Follow the path right from here and fall down to the lower level.  
At the next intersection, head left and follow the path down the screen.  Head 
into the first door and open the two chests here (one with the Key of Hermes) 
to obtain a DESERT FLOWER and a YELLOW MANA.  Exit and continue right.  Open 
up the chest here for a FIRE BRAND.

Now head back to the intersection and go right.  You'll find the door here, 
and watch a scene.

Exit the area and watch a scene.

You are automatically brought back to Altena Church. Now head to the Gardo 
(Eden Continental Drive) at the back of the church.

as you'll need them in just a few moments.  Exit Viese's workshop for a scene.

Note: If you're looking for more Desert Flowers later on (to create the item 
with Jiptus) head to the Great Desert and there's a small Oasis at the central 
portion.  Use the Fairy tea on these to get some Desert Flowers.

Enter the Eden Temple and speak with Kreuz.  Before returning though, we have 
a few things to do.

Follow the path left here, and take a right when possible. Use the Fairy Tea 
on the bushes here to obtain an UROB, UROB x2, and another Urob x2.  Use some 
Yugdore Water on the Twisties to obtain SUPER NUE x2, SUPER NUE x3, and SUPER 
NUE.  Now head left, and down the right path.  There's a chest down here that 
holds a GREEN MANA.  Continue down this path and head up the screen at the 
next intersection.  Use a Rainbow Cloth on the Lithograph here.  There's 
nothing you can do to the south just yet, so head back up to the original 
intersection, and head north into the "building." 

Speak with Eital and bring her a Comet Gem. She makes a pact with you, and you 
receive the LIGHT GEM.

Note: At this point, you can create the Altena Jar. Also note that if you 
haven't already, you can use some of your more rare items to create an Ice 
Comet (it will probably take a Quicksilver Ankh, which takes quite a few items 
to create).

Follow the path, and head left at the intersection.  Head down the slop when 
possible, and keep heading down the screen until you reach another 
intersection.  Continue down and onto a new screen here.  Follow the path and 
soon a scene plays.  Continue right onto the next screen.

Here, continue down the path until you see an elemental "ball" and a Lightning 
Crystal. This Ball is an extremely rare Life elemental ball.  You may have 50 
from before (from Dour's Tree) but it is hard to find elsewhere, therefore, 
you don't Want to cap this without using the items.  Spend the Mana on your 
rare items, such as your "Core" items. 

Soon you encounter an intersection. Head south down the screen and at the

bushes to use Fairy Tea on. You receive UROB x2 and another UROB. Continue up 
and change screens.

In this new area, examine the pond to obtain the DORE WATER. You can get up to 
three of them.  

Make your way back through the tree and back to Noir.  Watch a scene in

First, you need to slaughter the toops of Regenbogen. Two Imperial Soldiers 
stand in your way first.  After killing them, head south down the screen to 
the next.  Soon, another short scene plays and you must fight off another 
enemy set.  This time there's four to kill, but the battle shouldn't be any 
harder than a normal encounter. Watch a scene and continue south, where you 
are soon ambushed by two more enemies, two Imperial Guards.  Keep heading 
south after this quick battle, and near the exit watch a scene.  This time you 
need to fight an Imperial Captain with two Guards and a Soldier.  The Captain 
is by far the strongest here, so make sure to get rid of him first.  After 
this, you finally break through.

You can not enter anywhere but the Riese Palace in Riesevelt, so do so.  Watch 
a scene. Enter the Palace.  You should be in an area that is familiar to you.  
Head up the screen and watch a scene.  Enter the door to the right of the save 
point and head past the Dragon statue.  You'll be in a familiar hallway. Enter 
the second door in here (it was once guarded) for a scene. Head north and 
enter the large library for a scene.  Help the Simsiltian here. Now, head back 
two rooms towards the Save Point and enter the room to the left.  Head through 
the second door into a new hallway.  Enter the room at the end, and speak to 
the Bully for another scene. Open the chest in this room for a DRAGON BLOOD.

Exit this room.  There are rooms on the right side of this hallway.  You can 
not see them other than the doorway. In the room closest to the Bully room 
you'll find four barrels. Examine them and you receive an Ale. The second room 
shows you a scene, so ignore it. And the room closest to the entrance help the 
Simsiltian out. Kill off the soldier and watch a scene here.  Head back to the 
Save Point and speak with the NPC there.

After saving all of these Simsiltians, head back to the right side of the 
Palace and enter the second door again.  Watch a scene. Head south and save at 
the Save Point here. Go north and through the far door up the stairs.  Watch a 
scene.

******************************************************
Boss: Galahad
Experience: 2,749
Skill: 46
Items: Black Mana
Cole: 2,500

Galahad is quite a bit faster this time than he was previously, so expect this 
battle to take some time.

Galahad has much the same attacks this time than he does previously. His Gaia 
Shake hits all of your party members for around 80 damage and he will use it 
often.  Try to have skills like Dodge and Block so that your characters avoid 
damage as often as possible.  After two Gaia Shakes make sure you use a 
Refuel, and make sure you heal after each of Galahad's stronger attacks. 
Galaha'd Tidal Force can do over 170 damage to a character, but fortunately 
hits multiple times so your characters with skills like Dodge and Block you 
can avoid some of the damage.

After about half of Galahad's HP is gone, he starts using his Heavens Light 
ability.  This is when things get harder.  Like the previous battle (and 
somewhat like Chaos' Crimson Ambition) this ability is not based on Galahad's 
turns, and will go on its own.  It restores a certain amount of HP every 
round, as well as Raising his Attack, Magic, Defense, and Speed.  So the 
longer you are in the battle, the stronger Galahad becomes.  Try using Magical 
Attacks instead of physical attacks after you have charged your power up. 
Galahad also sometimes uses his own turns to use Heaven's Light so you need to 
be able to deal some heavy damage all at once.

Don't bother with break attacks, and focus on Charging only, since you neeed 
to outdamage Heavens Light, and after a time, special abilities will probably 
be the only way you can adequately damage him.  The end of this battle can 
become particularly difficult because of the powered up boss, if this is 
happening, stick with level 1 abilities.  Ein Zecksclaw works wonders in this 
battle, especially at the end.
******************************************************

After the battle, heading back to the Save point is a good idea. From where 
you fought Galahad, head left and through the door.  Enter the door on the 
immediate right here, and open the chest in here to obtain a UROB. Continue up 
the path and enter the door on the right.  use the Key of hermes on the chest 
in this room to obtain the FALLEN BOOK, which allows Viese to create the Fog 
Box.  Head back to where you fought Galahad and enter the room right behind 
him.  Open the chest in here for a DARK MANA. Exit and follow the right path 
through the door.

Watch a scene. You now need to find some Soldiers (like before).  Enter the 
room behind Galahad for a scene.  Save the soldier and he helps out.  Now head 
to the left and go through the door. Enter both of the rooms in this hallway 
and speak with the Soldiers inside. After saving them head back to the right.  

Follow the right hallway and enter the firs room.  Examine the statue on the 
left and you'll receive 1050 COLE. Behind the right statue (invisible) is a 
chest that contains a GREEN MANA. Now enter room at the very top.  Watch a 
short scene here.  Now, head all the way back past Galahad and enter the left 
hallway and speak with the Bully at the far end of this hallway. Head back to 
Galahad and head south back to the Save Point screen. Speak with the bully in 
here for a scene.  After this, head back up the right path to the third 
floor.  Watch a scene.  

Head up to 3F and save your game at the same point. Head through the door at 
the end for a scene.

******************************************************
Boss: Quetzalcoatl
Experience: 4619
Skill: 75
Items: Glowing Mana
Cole: 3,000

This boss may look somewhat familiar if you've played "Eternal Mana." Like 
most recent bosses he is fast, so only Break Attack when necessary.  I also 
highly suggest coming into this battle with at least 10 Nectars and of each 
type of healing item, the more the better though.

This boss is incredibly nasty. His Ein Zecksclaw attack can do over 250 damage 
to a single character, which is enough to one-hit KO a character with lower 
HP. To help avoid this, use Divine Shield items on your characters. The boss 
also has a Zwei Zecksclaw attack, which randomly damages your party members 
for around 120 damage each.  Lastly, the boss has the ability to curse all of 
your party members. This is probably the least annoying of his attacks, as it 
actually doesn't do any damage and can miss often. One annoying ability the 
boss has is "Null Sphere."  NEVER attack while the boss is in this state, 
unless you want an extremely powerful counterattack of at least 150 damage to 
each character.  After this bosses status ends though, he uses the attack 
anyway, so you want to This is a good round to heal and revive your own 
characters, though.  Another extremely annoying Trait of this boss is his 
recovery of 500 or so HP every round.

There are a few ways to go about this battle, but you should have all of your 
fastest characters out.  Fee, Noin, and Felt work well.  Fee will probably die 
a couple of times, though, unfortunately. You need to keep Charge with two 
characters and have your attackers use their strongest moves every other 
round, as you will definitely need to have someone (or multiple people) using 
powerful healing items.

Gray will be rather useful in this battle, because of his extremely high HP 
and physical defense.  But having him come in as a supporting character after 
your speed characters to help act as a tank will help considerably as you try 
to recover your strength.

Near the end of the battle, not waiting until the Charge Bar reaches higher 
levels is best.  Stick with stronger lower level attacks, such as Ein 
Zecksclaw and Felt's Phantom Edge to damage the boss considerably.  You need 
to be able to do around 2,000 damage a round (or more) to damage the boss 
effectively, as he heals for 500 each time he takes a turn.
******************************************************

Watch a scene. Exit to the south and follow the path back where to you fought 
Galahad.  You now need to head through East Regenbogen.  Watch a scene here. 
Continue through Regenbogen for another scene.

You automatically enter Altena Church. Head to the Gardo and watch a scene.


******************************************************
Boss: Chaos
Experience: 6094
Skill: 94
Items: None
Cole: 2,000

Crimson Ambition with be your worst enemy in this battle. It will constantly 
make you stronger while it makes you weaker.  And since this battle is one one 
one, Felt needs to keep himself alive. Don't bother with Break Attacks, as 
Chaos is too fast. Keep Charging and using your Special attacks as often as 
possible.

Skills like Block will be your absolute best friend in this battle and will 
save your life.  Having a High physical defense helps as well.  Also, if 
you've learned Phantom Edge, that will end up doing more damage in the long 
run than does Raging Strike.  Extra Blow and Double Attack both help 
considerably to help raise your attack power over the healing power of Chaos.

Depending on your Abilities learned this battle will be easier to win for 
some, but the longer you let the battle drag it is harder.  try to avoid 
healing, and when you do, heal with powerful healing items that restore full 
HP or at least 300.

This will be your first time fighting as Viese. Give her some good items (That 
Aroma Material is nice) and approach the far side of the area. Viese gets into 
an encounter automatically.  Head to the next area.

Here, head left and use a Flay Hammer on that Yellow Rock for RED ORE x5. 
Follow the path around the screen and head right at the intersection.  Use 
Wonder Grow on the plants here for two Fire Crystals, a Stone Crystal, and 
MAGI GRASS x4. Follow the path to the next intersection and head right this 
time again.  Use a Flay Hammer here on the rocks to obtain SILVER LEGIEN x3 
and RED ORE x6. Continue down the screen to the left and exit the Desert.

Now, as you enter the World Map, you'll notice nothing is there.  Oh Joy.  
Viese needs to make her way all the way through the world map. . .alone. As 
you enter the Oasis, watch a scene.  Exit the Oasis and enter Tatalia.

In tatalia, enter the Save Point and Viese can Synthesize again. Head into the 
Mayor's Tent and speak with him, and then head to the lower right hand corner 
of the area, where the merchant with his two birds is. He tells you about a 
bar in Riesevelt.

If you remember, the Fork has three paths.  Since we're trying to reopen our 
World Map, you might as well take all three. The top path opens up the Desert 
Ruins (which will be a good place to level Viese up a few battles if you're 
interested), the lower path leads to the Great Desert, and the eastern path 
leads to West Regenbogen, our goal.

Enter West Regenbogen for a scene and keep heading south through the bridge, 
as there's not a whole lot we can get at this point. At the exit, the path 
opens to the back Alley. Enter the Back Alley and speak to the woman in the 
Bar for another scene.

    ~~~ Riese Palace - West Coast Highway - Northern Cave - Agito Cove ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Viese, Fee, Gray

The path to Riese Palace opens up.  There's nothing to do in Central Park, so 
ignore it. Inside the Palace, head to the save point, and take either a right 
or a left, and enter the central door on either side to reach the large middle 
area.  Exit to the top here for a scene. Now, head back to the right and 
follow the palace towards the exit. Gray and Fee join.

Exit Riese Palace for a scene. You're told that you need to go to Agito Cove. 
Follow the path right through West Coast Highway and to the top right corner 
of the area. With Fee and Gray the enemies won't be too difficult, but you 
will need to give Viese some HP (which is why the accessory Kreuz gave you is 
so useful). You may want to fight a few battles in this area.

Head through the Northern Cave fighting many battles to get Viese's level up a 
bit. Stick to the right wall if you're having trouble getting through the area.

In Agito Cove, watch a scene. Before heading onto the boat, create a Mell Orb, 
which Viese Initializes.  Examine the statue and watch a scene. Speak to him 
again to continue out of Agito Cove. Watch a scene.

Head through the Highway as you did last time, keeping to the right.  Once 
again, keep fighting extra battles in the area so that Viese will get some 
levels.

Head to Max's Camp, which opens up after you exit the area. Watch a scene.

At this point, there are two ways to get to Altena Church.  The Onuki Cave way 
is probably the faster way, but Sessier Plains will probably be more familiar 
to you.

If you choose to take the Sessier Plains way, you need to go through Sessier 
Forest, as well as through Altena Forest which will finally get you to the 
Church.  This is definitely the longer route of the two.

I personally suggest heading through Onuki Cavern.  When you head to the 
second screen (after you go past the area where you broke the bomb) a cute 
scene plays.  Continue right through the area to the third screen and head to 
the far right to exit.  This opens a path directly to Altena Church.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                        ~~~ From Altena Church ~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Characters: Viese, Fee, Gray, Noin

Create another Mell Orb (I suggest NOT doing it with Elements, but instead 
with items, as Life Elements are rare) and examine the statue in the front 
room. Watch a scene, and head into the Gardo for yet another scene. Use 
another Mell Orb here.

Head into the Camp screen and watch another scene.

Elemental Items: None

This will be a short trip. Watch a scene as you enter and head right to the 
next screen. Follow this path north and jump up to the upper levels and enter 
the Cavern behind the waterfalls.

Once inside the Wetlands, follow the path to the intersection and take a left. 
Follow this long and twisting path until you reach the next intersection, 
where you need to head north up the screen to yet another intersection.  Go 
left here, and take a right (up the screen) at the next intersection.

Soon a scene plays.  Head back to the previous intersection and head south.  
Use a Flay Hammer down here and you receive the ANCIENT ORE, ANCIENT ORE x2, 
and ANCIENT ORE x3 from the three Stalactites.  Head back to the intersection 
and go right. At the next intersection, use a Flay Hammer on the Stalactite 
here for a ANCIENT ORE x3 and then continue all the way right. Use more FLay 
Hammers over here some more ANCIENT ORE and an ANCIENT ORE x2. Head back to 
the intersection and continue along the path towards the entrance, picking up 
the ANCIENT ORE x4.  At the next intersection, head north and use the Flay 
Hammer for the ANCIENT ORE x2, ANCIENT ORE x3 and ANCIENT ORE x2. Near the 
entrance are some final Ore, the ANCIENT ORE and ANCIENT ORE x2.

With all of this Ancient Ore in hand, exit the area for a scene.

Note: If you have not received the Flay Hammer recipe at this point of the 
game, and have created one to use, you are screwed.  This is an "oversight" 
you can say, by the creators, and you can not continue the game.

Exit the Wetlands and head back to Altena Church.  Have Viese create a new 
item by switching the Shadow Stone of the Mell Orb with the Ancient Ore. You 
get a Destone Orb.  Head back into the Church and examine the statue and use 
the Destone Orb.

Watch a scene.

Before we continue, we need to create our new Megido's Key. Only make one, as 
Viese Initializes it. Also, walking out of the area, speak to everyone in the 
palace and you'll learn many new hints on where to go. Theresa tells you about 
a shop in Claire Village. Hagel tells you some interesting information for 
Gray as well.  Also, your Mystic Beast friends have moved into a room in this 
castle, and they tell you where to find some of the more rare plants.

There are also a few chests we can open at this point with this Key.  There's 
one in the Riese palace, lowest level, on the right side, which gives you a 
SPIRIT PROTECT item.
In Onuki Cave there is a chest on the second screen that holds a SOUL SHROUD.

talk to everyone in the town, particularly "Pops." Speak with the man near the 
save point as well for another scene. You receive an AROMA MATERIAL, a great 
armor.

Exit the area.

Speak with Yuveria for another scene.  Also, head through the door just south 
of the Gardo with your key.  In the library, watch a scene. Examine the far 
side of the upper level to read a book about the Dark Island.  Go down the 
ladder and examine a book on the far left here.  Head down the final ladder 
and examine the right bookshel to obtain the ANCIENT SKILLS, which allows you

here. 

Use an Animal Cookie on the Mystic Beast immediately for a tip, and then 
approach the door to the right. You receive the Y- 017J BLUEPRINTS.

Now head back to Altena Church and speak with Yuveria again.  She gives you 
the ARES LIQUID.

You automatically return to Riese Palace.  Enter the Camp and check the Ruby

Note: If you haven't opened up this area yet, you're going to need to enter 
the South Grand Plains and open it from there.

Follow the path left and use a Hook at the first chance.  Continue right and 
use a Hook at the second.  head back to the first hook and climb up it.  
Follow this path and pick up the item at the end to botain some GLOWGRASS. 
head back down and go up the second hook.

You are immediately confronted with an intersection. Head right here, and 
break the rock for LIGHTNING STONE x4. Drop down and break the second rock for 
LARGE RED ORE x3.  Enter the door at the far side here and open the two 
chests, one normally and the second with the Key of Hermes.  You obtain a DARK 
MANA and a DIEMA ANKH.  Head back to the intersection near the hook and take a 
left.

Use a Grappling Hook when possibly, and use a Flay hammer on the rock near it 
for SILVER LEGIEN x7. Continue left and use Flay Hammers on the next rocks to 
obtain ORE x2 and RED LEGIEN x8. Now head back up to the hook and you'll find 
a save point.  Head left from here and change screens.

You're immediately faced with an intersection. Head right and use a Grappling 
Hook when you can.  Take another right up here and follow the path down 
the "stairs" and open the chest at the end.  You receive the MANA POWER: LIFE 
from the chest. Head back to the intersection and take a left. Jump up to the 
highest level here and use Flay Hammers on the rocks to obtain ORE x3 and DEM 
ORE x8.  head back down to the lower level and to the intersection.

Head left this time. Soon, you'll encounter another intersection.  Take the 
left path and you'll exit the area.  This opens a path to the South Grand 
Coast, which you'll probably have heard mentioned a few times so far but 
haven't been able to enter before this.  Immediately re-enter Mt. Gelad and 
head up that large vine.

Follow the left path up here and use some Flay Hammers on the rocks. You 
receive LIGHTNING STONE x5 and LARGE RED ORE x4. Continue right and use two 
more for SHADOW STONE x5 and LIGHTNING STONE x5. Enter the cave here for a 
scene. You receive the MIRROR OF TWILIGHT.

After obtaining this item, exit the area.

On this new screen, immediately jump to the left and you're faced with a four 
way intersection.  Head left here and head all the way to the far left end for 
1,600 COLE. Head back to the intersection and user the Grappling Hook to 
continue up the path. When you can, jump down the stairs to the left and open 
the chest here with a Megido's key for the ILLUSIONAL VACATION, which allows 
you to create a TIME STONE.  Continue to the next intersection, and take the 
left.  Ride the large stone to a lower level and open the chest here for a RED 
MANA. Go back up and continue left all the way past the intersection. Open the

With three targets, you need to focus on one at a time.  If two are close 
together, area attacks will work, but still working on one at a time works 
best.  While Viese may normally be a good healer, at this time she is not.  
The enemies have an area-of-effect Dispel ability that does damage as well, so 
as useful as her abilties are, you want to avoid using them. if she is even 
decently levelled, but unfortunately, the enemies can cause Curse.

While focusing on one at a time, ignore break attacks unless necessary.The 
enemies are powerful, and can do over 150 damage with each attack, so if they 
target the same character over and over again prepare for some deaths.  As 
long as you bring your Nectars, this shouldn't be a problem, but being 
cautious is a good idea.  Also, having someone act as a healer/reviver every 
round is a good idea, but have another character be able to take over whenever 
possible.  Having the Guts ability helps considerably as well, especially if 
the enemies keep attacking the same person over and over again.

If a character gets the Curse status on them, there's not a lot you can do but 
let them die and revive them.  Since you won't be able to heal them, you might 
as well let them stay in critical HP range, and let the enemy waste a turn 
attacking them. 

Like previous bosses, these enemies constantly heal, so unless you have very 
powerful, and very constant, area of effect attacks, damaging more than one at 
a time will be difficult, but it is possible.  Because of their healing 
ability, you need to be able to do more than 500 damage to each of them per 
each of -their- rounds, which is a bit faster than each of -your- rounds. 
However you choose to fight the battle, it is winnable as long as you can keep 
your characters alive.
******************************************************

Watch a scene and continue right into the next screen, examine the altar for a 
scene. You obtain CHAOS' DIARY, and the ability to make the Verdure Doublet.

After the scenes, you need to create the Verdure Doublet.  Two of the Items 
are rare items, so expect to not see them again after it is created.  This 
gives you another short scene.  Now, exit the Ruins and you head to Riese

Watch a scene. Head to the center of the cave where you fought Ardgevald in 
the first place, and watch a scene.

******************************************************
Boss: Ardgevald
Experience: 2199 (Part 1), 10,999 (Part 2)
Skill: 36 (Part 1), 182 (Part 2)
Items: Dragon Shield (Part 1), Dragon Tongue (Part 2)
Cole: 1,200 (Part 1), 5,000 (Part 2)

This battle comes in two rounds. The first round is much like the first battle 
with Ardgevald way back when.

As with before, Ardgevald is extremely fast, and even your fastest characters 
will have a hard time keeping up with him. Ardgevald has much the same attacks 
as he did last time.  Volcano Breath does some 70 damage to all party members, 
and has a rather high chance of being Dodged or Blocked at this point. His 
strongest attack will probably be Royal Dragon Cry, which will do 50 or 60 to 
all of your party members, as well as lowering your elemental resistance. 
Dragon's Wrath does a good 100+ damage to a character, which isn't that much 
compared to some of the attacks you've been seeing from nastier bosses.  Your 
increased levels and new powerful skills should help out considerably here, 
making this battle a breeze. . .

However, part two is not so easy.

This is the real battle this time.  Ardgevald has the typical 500 HP recovery 
per round, meaning you're going to have to deal a large amount of damage to 
overcome his defenses.  Also, remember his high speed.

His attacks are also quite a bit more powerful, althought they are the same as 
before.  Royal Dragon Cry does a good 150+ to all party members as well as 
weakening resistances. Volcano Breath does the same amount, so you're going to 
need quite a large amount of Refuels in this battle.  Viese's Healing Drop 
skill helps quite a bit, as it heals over time. Because Ardgevald has so many 
area attacks, the problem is just keeping your entire party healed at all 
times, because of his greater speed. If you use one of Viese's Heal-Over-Time 
skills it will save you items as well as possible battle rounds that you could 
be doing something else.

Now, while this all seems fine and dandy so far, the boss hasn't shown you his 
greatest strength. His Flare attack will hit every one of your party members 
for over 300 damage! This is almost guaranteed to KO one or two of your party 
members, depending on who you're using. Try to use at least one character who 
has over 350 maximum HP, and keep him at maximum at all times.  The problem 
with this Flare Attack is, that while you're trying to recover from it, 
Ardgevald will probably take a few rounds and therefore recover 1,000 or 1,500 
HP, so you want to have as few characters as possible die.  Therefore, you 
might actually want to put Gray into your battle party, evenm if you don't 
actually use him normally (he's so slow ; ;!).  Shredding Dragon is still 
probably his strongest attack, after all this time.  With your other 350+ HP 
character (most probably Felt, but for some crazy people it may actually be 
Poe) attack, and devote your third character to healing every round, since 
most of the females won't have enough HP to survive the Flare attack, even 
with Fire Armor on.

One dangerous thing to note is that once Ardgevald uses his Flare Cannon once, 
he likes to use it three or four times in a row before going back to his 
normal pattern of attack. You need to heal (A Heal Bulb is nice) and revive 
your characters as quickly as possible and resume your attacks before 
Ardgevald has a chance to slaughter you.

up the screen and jump up the levels.  Use a Grappling Hook, and open the 
chest up at the very top to obtain 1,200 COLE. Head back to the intersection 
and take a left.

At the next intersection, go right, and stick right.  Use a Grappling Hook 
here and open the chest for a YELLOW MANA. Go back down to the intersection 
and continue left. At the next intersection, take a left, and you'll find many 
rocks to use a Flay Hammer on. You receive an ORE, ORE x2, MOON STONE x5, ORE 
x2, and DEM ORE x5. Head back and go right.  Jump to the upper level and head 
left up the "stairs." Use a Flay Hammer up here to obtain two sets of 
LIGHTNING STONE x3. Exit to the left.

In this "forest" area, continue left to the intersection.  Head south when 
possible and open the chest down here for a DRAGON BONE. Go back up and 
continue north at the intersection. At the next intersection, continue north 
to the next intersection, where you should go north and open the chest for a 
BLACK MANA. Continue left and you reach a three way intersection.

Take the left path to pick up a PHOENIX QUILL. Now take the right path all the 
way to the south and use Wonder Grow on all of these plants here. You receive 
a FRESH GLOWGRASS and a FRESH GLOWGRASS x2. You also reveal a Water Crystal, a 
Wood Crystal, 2 Poison Crystals, and an Aroma Crystal.  Use a Fairy Tea on the 
bush to obtain AIHIE FUNGO x5. Continue along this path to the left and 
continue up the path until the next area.

Note: The Baal enemies in this area are extremely nasty.  Also, the Mana 
Clusters in the later areas of this dungeon are some of the only enemies in 
the game that will give you Life elements, and that is only -sometimes-, so 
you need to try and encounter as many of these as you can.

Fall down to the lowest level of this lovely and safe first area. 

In the second area, head right and follow the path to the intersection and 
head left.  Jump up to the upper level to the right and follow this ~long~ 
path up to the very top.  Go through the green teleporter up here and pick up 
the SILVER WATER x2.  Head back down and take the teleporter to the left.  

Walk down the long path and take the next teleporter to a new area.  Follow 
this path right and up through the next teleporter. Continue right up this 
path, and start making the jumps to the left.  Some of them are rather 
difficult, as you need to be -perfectly- placed to reach the next level. Take 
that raised teleporter to a new area.

Save at the Save Point, and take the long stairs down to the left. Open the 
chest down here with a Key of Hermes for a Daza's Belt.  Head back up and take 
the right path.  Use the teleporter.

In the new area, take the right "rock" to a small side area and open the chest 
here to obtain a DARK MANA. Head back to the main area and continue up the 
screen.  At the intersection, take a left and open the chest here to obtain a 
UROB. Head back to the intersection, go north and take the teleporter.

The enemies get a bit harder at this point.  Be especially careful of the 
Flame Virum. Follow the path to the intersection and head south down the short 
path.  Use a Megido's Key on the chest here to obtain the PIRATE BRAMUS, which 
allows you to create the Nautical Charts.  Head back to the intersection and 
go right this time and through the next teleporter. Head through another 
teleporter and follow the path left up the screen.

Watch a scene. You receive the ARES LIQUID.

This boss will end up being a lot like the previous "mech" fight.  This one is 
a bit easier though, as you are quite a bit stronger and the boss hasn't 
seemed to increase in power since the last time you fought him.  

He has Ein Zecksclaw for over 200 damage to a single character. Dodge is a 
nice ability to have to help reduce the damage that you take from this attack. 
He also has Zwei Zecksclaw, for random damage (about 100-150) to your party 
members. 

Compared to previous bosses (namely, Ardgevald), this one has surprisingly low 
HP and is quite slow.  Though his attacks are powerful, his lower speed and 
nothing you haven't seen before will make this a surprisingly easy battle for 
you.
******************************************************

You receive the Book of Marcus.

You automatically head to Riese Palace.

You need to create the Gurgu's Cane now, which requires two Key Items and a 
Urob you can harvest if you don't have one.

After you have gone through all of these dungeons and obtained the items for 
the Ruby Prism, you need to create it. You should have at least one Aroma 
Material (you got it in the story) but if you've done everything you'll have 
two, so you can still have one equipped.

As Viese states, she can use a Destone Orb on the people of Eden to save them.

Head into Alchemic City Noir. You receive a SPEEDSTER.

Head into Viese's house in Noir and create Destone Orbs.  Create at least 20 
with all of your Ancient Ore, but you'll need more than that to free every 
person in Eden so you're going to need to head back to The Wetlands get more 
Ore, or use your rare Life Mana for Synthesis. Remember to open the chest 
upstairs in Viese's house with your Megido's Key for a TIK TIK.

In Noir, you need to use a Destone Orb on Melona and Coco (for a scene), 
Meila, a Fairy, a Nymph, the Lady, the Dog, the Aroma Mana, a Jiptus, Klavia, 
and Yach (for another scene).  Speak with Yach again after you've freed him 
and he re-enters his shop selling new items. Free the Uru in here and you'll 
have gotten everyone in Noir.

Exit Noir.  Now we need to get the Holy Grounds. Let's start with the Moon 
Tower. There is are 2 Plua, a Faustus, and a Nymph, for 5 people.  Now let's 
head to the Scarlet Temple and use a Destone Orb on 3 Uru here.  In Marmel 
Forest, use a Destone Orb on 3 Dour. Head to the Great Cave and use a Destone 
Orb on the single Zuvelk here. Head to the Weathervane Hill and use a Destone 
Orb on the Silwest (the Nymph has strangely disappeared). In the Crystal 
Monument, use an Orb on the Dour, the Eital, the Silwest (near the Yugdore 
Tree) and the Faustus.

Finally head to the Eden Temple, with quite a few more Destone Orbs in hand. 
Use one on the Mana Guard and enter the Temple. First enter the Library and 
use one on Lutanus for a scene.  Now head back out and use the item on the 
Zuvelk, the Siren, the Cardinal Worker, and finally, Kreuz for another scene.

But that is still not everyone!  We need to go to the Stone Mana's Holy Ground 
to get the rest of everyone in Eden.  Free the Diemia before the Grounds, and 
then the one near the entrance.  There's one near the exit as well.  After 
getting all three (and having cured everyone in Eden) head back up and speak 
to Lutanus in the library. She gives you the HEAVENLY SIGH.

When you're ready to continue, enter the large door behind Kreuz.

Before heading into the final dungeon, you need to make sure that you have 
your best gear and equipment.

Head right to the save point and you'll encounter an intersection. head right 
at the intersection and open the chest here for a YELLOW MANA. Head back to 
the Save Point and head straight  from it (or rather, straight from the 
entrance, right from the direction you're coming from) and you'll come upon an 
intersection. 

Take the left rock through two areas, and head south when possible.  Open the 
chest here with a Hermes Key and you'll receive a DAZA'S BELT.  Now follow the 
path north and when you can, continue up the large path north (ignore the path 
to the right).

On the new screen, jump up to the upper level, and take a left here.  Follow 
the path and take another left.  Open the chest here for a GREEN MANA. Follow 
the previous path up the screen and around, and soon you will be able to jump 
up to the right (onto a green level).  Do so, and you will encounter another 
intersection.  Head right here and open the chest at the bottom for a BLACK 
MANA. Head back and continue left and you'll find a Save Point here.

Enter the Save Point for a scene. Exit the Save Point, and head south down the 
long path.  This will eventually make you change screens.  On this screen, 
continue up the large rocks, and open the chest with the Megido's Key to 
obtain the CHURCH TALE, which allows you to create a Rotor Ankh.  Head back to 
the save point immediately and create two of these for Noin and Fee, as they 
are excellent items. 

Note: If you use some Cueparts on this new item, you can create a 'Spiteful 
Stone' which is an item you Super Uni, if you have all of the items.

At the Save Point, head up the screen and change. Follow this screen all the 
way  right and eventually you'll come to a very large tower of blocks.  Make 
your way to the very top of this tower (it is quite tall) and open the chest 
with a Megido's Key up on the top for a SPEEDSTER.

Now, there are two paths to go to next, but they both stray from the main 
path.  One actually leads to a side Save Point, but it's not really woth it 
just to head there just to get to the save point.  Head to the lower area of 
this large "rock" and take the lowest passage to the right. Stick to the lower 
wall in this large room and keep heading right as far as possible. Then, start 
jumping up the rocks above you and you'll find a Save Point here.  Use it, and 
keep heading up this path as it changes screens.

As you might expect from the Divine Judge, she is an mage type foe, and will 
love being the healer type of this battle.  The Divine Guard is the attacker, 
and will prove the main damage dealer. The Judge has "Gnash" which will cause 
paralyze as well as do around 120 damage to a single character. She also has 
Meteor Strike, which the Lilims seem fond of using.  This ability is fire 
elemental and can do upwards 100 damage to all of your characters as it hits 
multiple times.  Lastly, she has Ice Veil which does over 100 to everyone. The 
Divine Guard as mainly physical attacks, like a single target ability, which 
does from 50-100, and a "Wave" abilitiy that does around 45 to everyone and 
knocks you back a bit. 

The Judge is easily the more powerful of the two, as she has powerful spells, 
and the ability to weaken you towards her magic with "Dis-Element."  Note that 
with the Judge gone, the Guard is weak and will not pose much threat, but he 
does have the Quick ability, so don't let your HP drop too far down. He does 
however, start using "overdrive" which strengthens his attack power, but 
lowers his defense power, and makes it the perfect time to attack him.  Note 
though, that once he gets to lower HP, he does get quite powerful and starts 
becoming quite dangerous, as he gains a new single target ability.

Even with their powerful abilities however, you should not have too much 
trouble taking these two down. I suggest using a stronger Healing-Over-Time 
ability of Vieses so that you can save yourself a few rounds whenever 
necessary and keep attacking over and over again, targeting the Judge well 
before the Guard.

This is a surprisingly easy battle.

Take the teleporter to the new area.

Jump down to the left and follow the sky area left.

At this point, you'll find the last Lithograph.  Before examining it, however, 
make sure you have examined all of the previous Lithographs in the game.  You 
receive the ELLIS, which allows you to create the Cure Crystal.

From the Lithograph, take a left and open the chest over here, which holds a 
GREEN MANA. Follow this path up the screen, and soon right.  Soon you'll 
encounter an intersection.  Head right here and down the screen until you see 
a large tree.  Circle around this to the right and then open the chest here 
with a Megido's Key to obtain an AROMA MATERIAL (yay!)  Head back left to the 
intersection and go up to the next screen.

On the new screen, this path is just a long area north. Soon you'll reach a a 
Save Point.  Use it immediately. Continue up the path and enter the large door 
at the end for a scene.

Boss: [Final Boss]
Experience: None
Skill: None
Items: None
Cole: None

Prepare for a rough ride.  

The Final Bosses Crimson Moon will almost definitely be a one hit kill move, 
even with Guts. Shadow Azoth is likely to slaughter a single character as 
well. The Final bosses main area attack early on does around 150 to all of 
your members.  Crimson fury lowers all of your stats at once, so on your 
strongest attackers.

You need to come into this battle fully stocked with Nectar and with having at 
least one character acting as a healer every round. Keep everyone over 300 HP 
at all times, and avoid not healing, even when you think you're fine. Keep up 
Viese's Healing Rain if you're using her.  This will help keep you alive.  
Using Noin and Fee will help as they have the Quick ability that no other 
characters have.

Note that the Final boss has two attacks per round, which his timed Crimson 
Split, and his other action that he can choose.  What he likes to do here is 
keep weakening your elemental status over and over again, until finally when 
the timed event goes off, you may get slaughtered.  Try to keep him in Break 
status, as you DO NOT want your elemental resistance low when this goes off, 
as it can do well over 400 damage to your entire party, even with high magical 
defense.  This is the hardest part of the battle.

At the halfway point of this battle, he starts off with a new move that causes 
status effects.  Sleep and poison will cause the most problems in this 
battle.  Poison damages you over time, and Sleep will cause you to be 
inactive.  Cure these as soon as possible with whatever items you happen to 
have.  This is where the problems start, as the boss likes to start using his 
attacks over and over again.

Your battle strategy really depends on your party.  I prefer Noin, Fee, and 
Viese as a healer.  Others will prefer Gray as he can survive the bosses 
attacks better, and some may prefer Felt because he is stronger than Viese. 
One thing I do suggest, however, is having the HP UP ability, as it helps 
CONSIDERABLY.

The Dragon's Nest is a side quest that you can do throughout the game.   Each 
battle in the nest is technically 5 battles long, each progressively harder 
than the last.


The Elder Virium Set is rather easy, and also practically required for the 
story. You can not do more battles until you finish the Elder Virum set.
The first battle set starts against two Salamanders and a Virum. Take out the 
Salamanders first, as they are more annoying (but weaker) and then kill the 
Virum.
The seond battle is close to the first, except with Basilisk instead of 
Salamanders.  Kill off the Basilisk first, as they are actually more dangerous 
than the Virum, even though the Virum is faster.
The third round has two Salamanders and two Basilik.  Kill off the Salamanders 
with Charge attacks and use your special abilities as soon as possible on the 
Basilisks, as they are much more dangerous.
The fourth round gives you a stronger enemy. This "Uni Virum" is alone, so 
keep using Break Attacks on him and you should be fine.  While it is faster to 
use Charge attacks, Break Attacks will be safer. 
The Final Round is against the Elder Virium. Once again, keep breaking him 
rather than charging him, but once he is in the break zone focus on your 
special attacks. If he gets a turn, he has the ability to use Terra Flame, 
which does around 125 damage to all of your party members. VERY ouch.  You 
want to keep him from having a turn as much as possible.  Plus, the more you 
break him, the more experience you'll get.  Hopefully, you can get more than 
2,000 Experience from this battle when done correctly. 

You receive the DRAGON BLOOD x3 and Gray learns the Skill Dragon Slayer for 
completing this trial.

After clearing the Dragon test, you can fight many more. 


"Dragon's Den Qualifier" 
The first round pits you against 5 Red Punis. This is very very easy, 
especially with Fee's normal large range attack.
The second round pits you against two Salamanders, a Witch, and a Wood Golem.  
Get rid of the Witch as soon as possible as she is the healer, then get the 
Salamanders (they can cause the most damage in a short period of time).
Round three pits you against three Red Punis and a Vulture.  The Vulture is 
the most dangerous foe here, as it has a large range attack, so kill it first.
Round four is a bit harder, with two Totems, a Master Puni, and a Brownie.  
The Totems are mean, as they can heal, as can the Master Puni. Kill off the 
Puni first, as she is fast, then kill the rest as you can.
The final round sets you up against two Zombie Punis and two Mountain Pigs. 
None of these enemies are particularly difficult, but the Zombie Punis are a 
bit harder than the mountain pigs.

You receive 5 Puniballs for finishing up "Dragon's Den Qualifier." This also 
opens up the Novice Dragon's Den.


"Novice Dragon's Den"
The first round is rather annoying.  You are faced with three Banshees, an 
Elemental, and a Witch.  remember that only magic and Felt can kill off the 
Banshees and Elementals, so it may take a few extra rounds.  Fortunately, they 
are not aprticularly strong, but make sure to kill off the elemental first, 
she is quite a bit meaner than the Bashees.
In the second round, you are fighting against two Mountain Pigs, a Master 
Puni, and a Were Cat.  The Were Cat is the nastiest of the bunch and needs to 
be killed immediately.
In the third round you face off against two Zombie Punis, two Ice Punis, and a 
Master Pig.  The Master Pig needs to be killed first, and then the Ice Punis. 
Not abnormally difficult, but the enemies have made a jump in HP.
The fourth round is a bit more dangerous. A Baphy and three Assassin Dolls.  
All of these are quite strong, but the Baphy is probably the worst.  Still, 
save the Baphy for last, as he is slow, and kill the Assassin dolls as soon as 
possible.
And in the final round, you are faced against two Parafungos, a Bugbear, and 
the Boss, a Shadowgirl. Immediately slaughter the Parafungos, as they have low 
HP and will cause bad status effects. Take down the Bugbear next, and then 
finally the Shadowgirl, as she is the main boss.  She has the most HP and is 
by far the strongest enemy on the screen.

You receive 5 Huffin for completeing this battle. This opens up the Standard 
Dragon's Den.


"Standard Dragon's Den"
The enemies in this level start out a bit stronger than before.  You fight a 
Gunner, two Maxwells, and a Totem.  None of these are particularly dangerous 
but they can be annoying. The Gunner has an area attack that hits everyone 
though, so you may want to kill her off first.
In Round Two, you fight two Sorceresses, a Caterpillar, and two Banshees.  Use 
magical attacks on the Banshees and take down the rest to your leisure.  This 
one is easier than the previous round.
In Round Three you fight two Stone Golems.  These are both strong enemies with 
high HP, but they are easy to kill because they are very slow. Do be careful 
of Head Toss though, it can be quite dangerous.  Use Break Attacks liberally. 
In round four you encounter a new enemy, the Blaze Element along with two Wolf 
Leaders.  Wolf Leaders are powerful on their own (they are fast) and you need 
to kill her off too. Normal attack don't work on her (much like ghost type 
enemies) but Felt's attack does.  Try Bomb Ice's for some decent damage.
The final round is strange.  You are up against 5 Fly Trappers. They have low 
HP and are clumped together so your ranged attacks can hit them.  
Unfortunately, they are very fast and they do hit for a decent amount of 
damage (around 30 a hit) and cause poison with each hit. The damage can rise 
quickly if you don't kill them off.

You receive 5 Glowgrass for finishing this battle, and you open up the 
Advanced Dragon's Den.


"Advanced Dragon's Den"
Note: This is by far the hardest one you can do at this point, so you should 
probably attempt this one last.
This time, you start off against two Stone Golems, which was the third round 
in the Standard Matches.  Keep them in Break Status and do be careful of their 
Head Toss abilitiy as it can deal quite a bit of damage.
Round two starts you off against three new enemies, called Hell Kitties.  
These are dangerous foes, much like the Were Cats.  They are fast, so don't 
bother breaking them. Charge them and use Special attacks to kill them one at 
a time.
Round three gets nasty.  You are pitted against an Elder Virium.  keep him in 
Break status at all times, and keep your HP above 150 in case he uses his 
strongest abilitiy. 
Round four gives you some more new enemies to face off against, including two 
Succubus, and a Legion paired with two Elementals.  The Succubus are very 
powerful, as is the larger Legion, so expect some deaths if you do not get rid 
of them quickly.  Use items, such as Meteors to damage everything at once.
The Final Round places you against two Bugbears, two Charons, and the boss, a 
Book Eater.  The worst part of this battle is that there are so many enemies 
and that they have ranged attacks so you will need to heal multiple 
characters.  Noin works extremely well in this battle as her special abilities 
heal everyone.  If you are low in level, this battle may take multiple 
attempts. Note that you should not even attemtp to attack the boss until you 
have gotten rid of everything else because of extremely high HP. Also, items 
like Meteors or Mega Flames work well for Crowd Control.

You receive 5 Tatalia Cotton for winning.


"The Sword Test"
The first round puts you up against four Brownies and a Baphy.  The Baphy is 
the strongest, of course, but the Bronies need to be killed off first because 
of their speed.
Round Two gives you three Gunners and a Master Thief. The Gunners all have 
area attacks, but the Master Thief heals, so kill them off however you see 
fit. 
Round Three gets rather nasty, pitting you up against two Baphys and three 
Assassin Dolls. The Assassin Dolls need to be slaughtered quickly as they have 
extremely high speed.
Round Four is a bit harder.  You have two Mercenaries, two Heavy metals, and a 
Blaze Element. The Blaze Element can not be damaged normally, so you need to 
use items, magic, or Felt's physical attack to damage it.  Try Bomb Ices to 
deal damage with items.
Round Five is a bit strange.  There are two Assassin Dolls, two Poisonous 
Fungos, and the boss, a Death Gigas. Immediately get rid of the Poisonous 
Fungos, as they cause some nasty status effects that can ruin the battle. The 
Assassin Dolls are next, and then take down the boss, who you should kill off 
with break Attacks and Specials whenever you have the chance.

You receive 5 Aihie Fungo for finishing this set.


"The Fighter Test"
Round One starts off rather easily, with two brownies, two Were Cats, and a 
Wood Golem.  The Were Cats need to go down first because of their high speed, 
and then focus on the Brownies. When facing the Golem use a lot of Breaks, as 
alone he is the most powerful of the bunch.
Two Harpys and two Baphys await you in this round.  The Harpys need to be 
slain first because they weaken you and are a bit faster than the Baphys.
Found three is a bit tougher, placing you against three Sr. Mountain Pigs.  
These enemies have high HP and physical attack power. I suggest having Noin as 
an active character in this battle so that she can be a healer.
Round four is quite nasty.  You face two Jin (which can not be damaged with 
normal attacks, only Felt and Magic), a Legion, and a Shadowgirl.  Each enemy 
in this battle is dangerous in their own right, but the Jins are particularly 
dangerous because of their high speed.  The Legion is next for death because 
he has lower HP than the Shadowgirl.
The final round has you fighting three Stone Golems.  These are not 
particularly powerful enemies by themselves but with three of them they can be 
quite dangerous.  Instead of breaking them like you would normally keep 
charing them and hope you can use powerful area attacks as soon as possible.

You receive 5 Mini Pendelooks for finishing this.


"The Light Test"
This is a magic based enemy set.
The first round makes you fight against a Witch, two Master Punis, and two 
Master Pigs. None of these are particularly dangerous but there will be a lot 
of healing going on so you need to kill them before they start healing each 
other.
Round two is a Zombie Puni, a Golden Puni, and a normal Puni.  The Zombi Puni 
is the strongest of course, but this is an easy battle.
Round three is much the same, with a lot of healing and support type enemies. 
Two Fly Trappers, two Sorceresses, and a Totem.  The Totem should be taken 
down first as he has Area Heal, the rest can be taken down at your leisure.
Round four is against two Banshee, two Hell Kitties, and a Sorceress. The 
Banshee need to be taken down with Magic and the Hell Kitty are fast anf 
furious and need to be taken down first and immediately.  Don't bother 
breaking the Kitties, as they will recover far too quickly.
In the final round you fight against an Enchantress and two Totems. Kill the 
Totems as fast as you can as they will act as healers throughout the battle.  
Do not even attempt to kill the boss before you kill off the Totems.  The 
Enchantress herself has the Refuel ability, which will heal around 600 HP!  
You need to Charge over and over again and then pound her with special 
attacks, or keep breaking her, which tends to work better.

You receive 5 String for completing this annoying set.


"The Totem Test"
Our final trial is the Totem test.
We start out with two Zombie Punis, two Fungos, and a Wood Golem.  The Zombie 
Punis and Fungos are easily disposed of, but the Wood Golem you need to keep 
in a Broken state, as he is a bit stronger than the other ones.
Round two gives you two Totems, two Fly Trappers, and a Brownie.  get rid of 
the Totems because of their area heal first, and then the Fly trappers because 
of their speed.  Leave the Brownie for last, as he is the weakest.
Round three is two Ghosts, a Salamander, and two Fungos.  This is a rather 
strange set of enemies.  Dispose of the Ghosts with magical attacks and then 
kill off the Salamander, who will deal more direct damage than the Fungos.
Round four has two Floating fish, two Witches, and a Bugbear.  The Floating 
Fish aren't really special, but the Witches can heal, and the Bugbear can 
damage an area. Nothing particularly powerful here though.
The final round you face only a single enmy, strangely.  The Totemite boss. He 
is not particularly difficult if you keep him in break status. 

You receive 5 Super Nue for winning.

============

Later in the game, more battles are opened up.

"Expert Spirits"
Round one is against two Salamander and a Blaze Element.  The Salamanders will 
be a pain, but are definitely much easier to take out.  The Blaze element 
needs to be killed with Magic, so kill her last.
Round two is a Frigid Element and two Frozards.  The Frozards are quite a bit 
stronger than the Salamanders, but once again you need to get rid of them 
before you do the Element, as the Element is a pain to kill. 
Round three is a pure Magic round, with a Shock Element and two Elementals.  
Use characters like Noin and Felt with their larger range magical attacks to 
hit them.  Try to use alchemy items (a Mega Flame should do the trick) to deal 
damage or kill off the Elementals as well.  The Shock Element should fall 
last, as she has the highest HP.
Round four pits you against a Blaze Element and two Basilisk. The Elements 
you're used to with their annoying ability to not be able to kill them, but 
the Basilisks are strong.  Use your better judgement on what to kill first, 
but I suggest the Basilisks, because they are not only easier to kill, but are 
more dangerous.
In the final round you face a Frigid, Blaze, and Shock Element. Because they 
each have their own weaknesses, Alchemy Items are difficult to use here, as 
are certain ranged attacks, but still Felt and Noin's ranged attacks will 
work. Raging Wave will take them all down at once.

You receive 5 Fresh Glowgrass for winning this set.


"Expert Beastwomen"
Round one starts off rather easily, with a Harpy and two Werecats.  The Harpy 
is the easiest foe, so slaughter her first, and take down the faster, and more 
dangerous, Werecats next.
Round two is an Assassin Doll, a Jin, and a a Brownie.  The Jin is by far the 
strongest, but only because killing him off can prove somewhat difficult, as 
only magical attacks hit him. Take down the Assassin Doll next, and then the 
Brownie, who is a weakling compared to the other two.
Round three has a Shadowgirl and a Hellkitty.  Both of these are difficult, 
but the Hell Kitty is faster, while the Shadowgirl is stronger.  Get rid of 
the Hell Kitty first, as she has the lesser HP of the two, and then focus on 
the Shadowgirl.
In Round four you fight an Evil Beast and two Harpies.  Take down the weak 
Harpies before the Evil Beast, because they are much easier to kill off.  The 
Evil beast is strong and fast compared to the other foes, though.
In the final round you fight two Were Cats, a Hell Kitty, and a Shadowgirl.  
This is an odd assortment of enemies.  Take down the Hell Kitty and Were Cats 
first because of their higher speed (they will also probably be clumped 
together) and greater damage potential. Finally, take down the Shadowgirl, who 
is strong with the enmy set, but weaker on her own.

You receive 5 Phoenix Quills for finishing this set.


"Expert Dark Clan"
This set is going to be a bit more difficult. 
Round One is two Maxwells, two Bugbears, and a Salamander.  The Maxwells and 
Bugbears are both more annoying than they are threatening, but they can hit 
areas of your party members.  Like most round one battles, this is meant to 
give you an idea of what you're going to face.
Round two pits you against an all ghost type battle, with two Ghosts and two 
Lantern jacks.  Characters with the ability to use Magic work well (Noin, 
Felt) for damaging the enemies here.  Try using some Alchemy Items to help 
out, any work, really.
Round three puts you up against three Assassin Dolls, a Bugbear, and a Baphy.  
The Baphy is by far the most dangerous of the bunch, but he also is the 
hardest to kill.  Take down the easy to kill Assassin Dolls first, then deal 
with the Bugbear and the Baphy.
Round four is two Jins and two Maxwells.  Both of these enemies are 
particularly annoying.  Jin's can only be damaged with magical attacks, and 
Maxwells like to put you to sleep. Take them down in whatever order you want, 
but none of them are any more dangerous than any others.
Round 5 is against 3 Death Gigas.  These are nasty little enemies with 
multiple attacks and the ability to curse you (or to stop you from healing). 
Attack one at a time and you should be fine.  If you do happen to get cursed, 
switch the character out, or let them die and bring them back.

You receive 3 Dragon bones for winning this.


"Expert Mercenaries"
This one is a step up in difficulty from the last few.
Round one is two Mercenaries, two Heavy Metals, and a Sorceress.  The 
Sorceress is easily the strongest enemy here, so kill here first of all, and 
then kill the rest of the enemies at your will, as they are all equally 
powerful.
Round two can be a bit annoying, as you are faced against two Witches, two 
Gunners, and an Archer.  Kill off the Witches first, as they can put you to 
sleep, and then kill off the dangerous Archer.  The Gunners have area attacks 
that can be powerful, but if you kill off the other enemies, they shouldn't be 
anything to worry about.
Round three is definitely harder.  There are two Sorceresses, a Supreme Wolf, 
and a Beast Master.  Kill off the Sorceresses because of their lower HP first, 
and then kill off the Surpeme Wolf, because he is capable of causing huge 
amounts of damage over time. The Beast Master is dangerous by herself, but the 
Supreme Wolf can do more damage to single targets.
In Round four, you are going to be annoyed.  You have three Heavy Metals, an 
Enchantress, and a Succubus.  The Entrantress enemies are extremely annoying 
by themselves.  Kill off the three Heavy Metals with single target Charge 
attacks, and then focus on the Succubus.  She will drain your health and cause 
negative status effects.  If necessary, use a Special attack or two on her.  
The Enchantress needs to be taken down last and quickly, else she will 
constantly heal herself for over 800 damage.
In the final round, expect some annoyance.  There's TWO Enchantresses this 
time, as well as a Jin.  Use Magical attacks on the Jin first of all. You're 
probably not going to be able to dent the General too much with the two 
Enchantresses alive, so you're going to need to kill at least once of them off 
before even attempting to attack him.  Keep charing the same one over and over 
again, building up your special power and then attack them with all you have.  
With the General alone, you still need to worry about his special attacks, but 
it's not as hard to win.

You receive 3 Frozen Rain for winning this set.

"Expert Puni"
Round one of this higher level Puni set has you fighting against two Ice 
Punis, a Red Puni, and two Giant Punis. kill off the Ice and Red Punis first 
because of their lower HP.  The Giant Punis themselves can be rather 
dangerous, but without their support you should be high enough level to take 
them down quickly.
Round two is a bit easier, with three Ice Punis and two Master Punis.  The 
Master Punis will be your first targets here, as they will act as healers and 
support mages throughout the battle, making it longer than it should be. If 
you kill them off first, taking down the Ice Punis will be much easier.
This one is pretty much the same battle as the last, except with stronger 
enemies.  There are three zombie punis and two Master Punis. As with before, 
take down the Master Punis first, as they will act as healers and make the 
battle longer than necessary.
With Round four, you have some (decently) rare enemies.  Two Puni Riders are 
your foes, and they are both rather strong, but nothing to brag about. Kill 
one at a time and you'll be fine.  
This one is only average in difficuly for a "final" round.  You are fighting 
against two Giant Punis, two Master Punis, and a Queen Puni.  The Queen Puni 
has a very large amount of HP, and is a decently rare enemy herself. The 
Master Punis definitely need to die first, as they are the support Mages like 
always, their their boosting and healing abilities. Kill off the Giant Punis 
one at a time, as they can cause some damage when left alive, and them focus 
on the Queen. One thing to note is that the Queen will call Giant Punis when 
she is left alive too long, so you need to use special abilities on her to 
finish the battle quickly. 

You receive 3 Ore for finishing this set.


"Expert Dragon Clan"
Round one is against two Salamanders and a Virum. The Salamanders are weaker 
versions of the Virum enemy,but can still be annoyances.  Take them down 
first, and then focus on Breaking the Virum over and over.
Round two is four Salamanders.  Use area attacks to kill them quickly, or Fees 
normal physical attacks.  Since they are low level enemies, you shouldn't have 
much difficulty with this battle. Be warned of their area attacks though, with 
four of them, the damage can raise to quite a bit over a short period of time.
In Round three you face off against an Uni Virum and two Basilisk.  While two 
of youre characters attack the Basilisk (which will probably be the more 
dangerous enemies in this battle) have the third character Break Attack the 
Uni Virum so that you can delay him a bit.  The Uni Virum is quite powerful 
even alone though, so try and keep him from acting to save yourself some 
damage.
In round four you encounter three Basilisk and an enemy that was once a boss, 
the Virum Zombie.  Since this enemy was a boss, you can't just encounter him 
anywhere.  Kill off the extremely annoying Basilisks with all of your 
characters on the first few rounds, and then focus on Break Attacks on the 
Zombie.  He is quite powerful, even at high levels, though his poison status 
effect is what makes him dangerous.
In the final round, there are three Frozards and a Mega Virum.  The Frozards 
are more powerful than the Basilisks, but less annoying because they do not 
increase their stats.  Like always, kill off the lower HP Frozards and and 
then keep the Mega Virum in Break Status to make the battle easier.

You receive 3 Ancient Ore for winning this battle.


"Master Hell Beasts"
Round one is against two Baby Pigs and a Sr. Mountain Pig. The Baby pigs need 
to be slaughtered first, and then focus on the much stronger Sr. Mountain Pigs.
Round two is a bit easier than round one.  In round two, you need to take down 
a Falcon Hawk, a Vulture, and a Roc.  That is the order they are Weakest to 
Strongest, and that is the order it will be easiest to kill them in. Not 
particularly difficult, but the Roc does have an area of effect attack.
Round three raises the bar a little, with two Hammerheads and a Stonehead. 
Each of these enemies are powerful alone, but three of them is dangerous.  
Take down a single Hammerhead at a time, using Charge attacks, and then use 
your strongest attacks to take down the Stonehead, which has probably 
strengthened its own defense by now.  It has quite a few HP, so it may take a 
bit to kill.
Round four is a Cerberus, a Supreme Wolf, and a Wolf. The Wolf is quite weak, 
and the Supreme Wolf is moderately powerful, but the Cerberus is dangerous.
The final round is very nasty.  Three Supreme Wolves await you.  A single 
Supreme wolf alone is dangerous enough, with their powerful single target 
attacks that happens over and over again.  Keep your party as close to full HP 
as possible and don't bother breaking because of the high speed of your foes. 

You receive three Large Red ores for winning this battle.


"Master Witches"
Round one is against two Master Punis, two Sorceresses, and a Witch.  Take 
down the Master Punis because their support magic is the most annoying, 
first.  The Witch is the weakest, but can be annoying because of her sleep 
ability.  The Sorceresses are the strongest enemies, so you'll probably leave 
them for last.
Round two has all the "healer" type enemies thrown against you.  Two Master 
Punis, Two Master Pigs, and an Enchantress.  Save the Enchantress for Last, 
because of her ever annoying healing ability, and then through all of your 
most powerful attacks at her.
In Round three you fight against two Enchantresses, a Witch, and a Sorceress. 
Take down the Witch first, as she can cause you some problems with her sleep 
ability.  Then the Sorceress, as she is less of a threat.  With the two Healer 
Enchantresses left, focus your attacks on one of them, and use all of your 
special abilities when available to kill them both.
Round four pits you against an Enchantress with two Lantern Jacks. As always, 
save the Enchantress for Last, and you'll need to build up your magical attack 
abilities to kill off the Lantern Jacks before you approach the healer.  
Charge Charge Charge is the key here.
In the final round you need to expect to take quite a bit of damage from the 
three Necromancers.  Dark resistance will help reduce damage you take, so 
adding Fee will help if you don't use her normally. They have an extremely 
powerful "Heaven's Gate" move which can do over 150 damage to each member, so 
you'll need to keep your Refuels on hand at all times.

You receive 3 Large Aeronium for winning this battle.

"Master Weapons"
Prepare yourself for quite the nasty finisher on this one.
Round one starts off easily, with two Totems and two Assassin Dolls.  Remember 
that the Totems are the healers, so get rid of them first to avoid prolonging 
a normally easy battle.
Round two is against three Assassin Dolls.  The main problem with this battle 
is that the enemies will cause negative status effects (Namely, Poison) onto 
your party members. Poison will end up causing more damage to you than the 
enemies will, so cure the status if you feel the battle will be prolonged.
In round three, you fight against two Totemites.  Both of these enemies are 
not particularly difficult, and neither do they have any particularly strong 
abilitity, but they can heal themselves.  This one is more annoying than 
anything.
In Round four, you fight against three Murder Bots, the stronger version of 
Assassin Dolls. Once again, you need to be cautious of their status effects 
over their normal attacks. They aren't particularly difficult, but try and 
stay healthy as the boss that follows is.
Round five is a stunning conclusion to this seemingly innocent enemy set.  If 
you're near the end of the game, you'll have already defeated this boss once 
already.  This boss has two Zecksclaw abilities, Ein and Zwei. Ein does around 
200 damage to a single person, while Zwei does around 100 or so to the entire 
party, randomly.
Having a large amount of mass-healing items and abilities helps considerably 
here.  Also, Dodge and Block will help reduce the damage from the bosses Zwei 
Zecksclaw.  Fortuneately for you, this boss is not as strong as the Quetzacotl 
boss from earlier in the game, but it can still be dangerous if you let your 
HP drop too low. 

You receive 3 Dragon Horns for finishing this set.

"Master Demons"
Round one starts out with some decently strong enemies, two Baphys and two 
Maxwells.  The Baphys are the stronger enemies, but the Maxwells are easier to 
kill off and can cause some negative statuses, so kill off the Maxwells first.
Round two kicks it up a notch, with two Legions, two Bugbears, and a Maxwell.  
Once again, the Legions are the stronger enemies, but the Maxwells and 
Bugbears are more dangerous and can cause some negative status effects.  
Definitely kill them off first, and then kill off the physically stronger 
Legions.
In round three, you have a Legion, a Baphy, and two Enchantresses two face as 
well.  As you should well know at this point, Enchantresses are healers and 
tend to enjoy making you mad. Kill off the Baphy first, as he has the lowest 
HP, then focus on the Legion.  After finally taking him down, focus on the two 
Enchantresses, one at a time.
In round four, you have a bit of a break.  You have a Legion, Succubus, and an 
Evil Beast.  Each of these are equally dangerous, but the Succubus and Evil 
Beast are each of note.  The Evil Beast is extremely fast and the Succubus has 
dangerous area moves.  I suggest killing off the Evil Beast first, then the 
Succubus, and finally the Legion.
This final round is going to be annoying, as you have Three Charon to kill.  
They like to spam area attacks that do high amounts of damage to your party, 
along with causing the poison damage. Area healing is necessary, as is healing 
over time to help reduce the amount of damage taken from their attacks.  
Charge one enemy at a time and then use special skills on the last ones. Note 
that these enemies have the Sleep ability, so Heal over time (from Viese) is 
extremely useful to help keep you alive.

You receive 3 Silver Water for finishing this set.

                              ^~^ Lithographs ^~^

Though they are mentioned in the Walkthrough, you can find many Lithographs 
throughout the game. You can get a Key Item for Alchemy in the Final Dungeon 
by reading every Lithograph with a Rainbow Cloth item. These are the locations.

Aquitto Spring - This is automatically found through the course of the game. 
You can't miss it, as it is required to obtain the Poison Mana.
----
Marmel Forest - Straight from the Fairy near the entrance.
----
Great Cave - Eden.  Take the first left at the entrance and follow this path 
to find the Lithograph.
----
Scarlet Temple - Near the Fire Mana Holy Ground, except farther to the left.
----
Great Desert - This is a bit difficult to find, but it is just south of 
the "Oasis" type area where you can get the Desert Flowers and the Lightning 
Crystals on the new screen.
----
West Coast Highway - Easy to find, on the way to the North Cave, except you'll 
take the second left instead of the first.
----
Forest of Ocean Mist - The "Mist" area (the second portion), right at the very 
beginning.
----
Eden Temple - In the Stone Mana underground area.  Once you've opened this 
area with the Key of Hermes you'll find it in the lower level.
----
Weathervane Hill - Hard to describe the location of this one, as Weathervane 
hill is quite annoying.
----
South Lake Midgard - On the large central hill, press against the right and 
you'll find this at the small side area.
----
Dark Moon Tower - Take a right at the first intersection and you'll find a 
Faustus type NPC in this new area that holds this Lithograph.
----
Crystal Monument - This one is on the lower level near the Yugdore Tree, area, 
except take a left instead of a right.
----
Sealed Ruins - This one is hard to miss, as you walk right by it to complete 
the area.
----
Final Dungeon - This one is automatically found, make sure you have read all 
of the rest of the Lithographs before this one.


You obtain the "Best" healing item in the game for reading all of the 
Lithographs. This item is called the Cure Crystal.
