    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
    Skill: None
    Items: Gradin Cape
    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.

    Items: Pure Water x5
    Mana Items: Metal Crystal x3 (+16 Metal), Green Rock x2 (+3 Stone, +5 Metal), 
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    speak to Max. Max gives you 500 COLE to buy the cloth.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Head right for a short scene. Follow the path right and down the screen for 
    some ways and eventually you'll reach an intersection.  Take a left here, and 
    open the chest at the end of this path for 670 COLE. Head back to the 
    intersection and follow the path right until you change screens.
    
    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 
    down until you reach a second intersection. Take either path here and after a 
    short walk a scene plays. Approach the girl again for another scene.

    Skill: 33
    Items: Old Magi Grass
    Cole: 234
    
    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.
    ******************************************************
    
    Watch a scene and you automatically exit the forest.

    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.

    There's more to explore this time.  Follow the path right until you reach the 
    intersection, and take the right path all the way to the next screen. On the 
    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.

    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.

    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.

    Key Items: The Light, Fire Gem, Workshop Map
    Items: Red Mana, Red Mana
    Harvested Items: Red Legien x9 (Red Rock), Red Legien x9 (Red Rock), Red 
    Legien x9 (Red Rock)
    Elemental Items: Fire Crystal x3 (+16), Fire Ball x3 (+50 Fire), Illusion 
    Crystal (+16 Illusion)
    
    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.
    
    You automatically switch to Felt.

    Mountain Pig, Were Cat, Brownie
    Bosses: None
    Key Items: Instruction Manual
    Items: Illusion Bracelet, 980 Cole, Blue Mana, Old Yadok Fungo x2

    Crystal - From Wonder Grow (+16 Stone), Poison Crystal - From Wonder Grow (+16 
    Poison)
    
    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.
    
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                               ~~~ Parnaky Cave ~~~

    Characters: Felt, Gray, Fee
    Enemies: Sorceress, Zombie Puni, Assassin Doll, Basilisk, Jin, Heavy Metal
    Bosses: Virum Zombie
    Key Items: Me, Myself & Bomb, Paper Skills
    Items: 810 Cole, Ice Brand
    Harvested Item: Red Legien x8 (Red Rock), Moon Stone x7 (Green Rock), Shadow 
    Stone x4 (Green Rock), Shadow Stone x5 (Green Rock), Moon Stone x7 (Green 
    Rock), Red Ore x8 (Yellow Rock), Silver Legien x4 (White Rock), Rem Ore x8 
    (Red Rock), Silver legien x5 (White Rock), Pearlberry x4 (Twisty), Pearlberry 
    x3 (Twisty), Pearlberry x4 (Twisty), Pearlberry x5 (Twisty), Pearlberry x3
    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.

    From the Altena Church entrance, take a right at the first intersection, and 
    follow this path all the way to the next screen. Speak to the Red Puni again  
    with a pearlberry in your possession for another scene. You receice a MANA 
    POWER for Viese, which allows her to create the Uru Core and Nymph Cores. Poe 
    joins your party.

    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.

    the right) that you should take to continue on.  In this new area, head south 
    at the intersection and open the chest for some FRESH GLOWGRASS. Use Wonder 
    Grow on the plants to reveal a Water Crystal and an Aroma Crystal. There's 
    three more plants to the right, and use Wonder Grow on them for a Wood 
    Crystal, YADOK FUNGO x2, and YADOK FUNGO x3. Head back up to the intersection

    FOUL WATER and SPOILED MEAT x3, but the rest can be destroyed.

    Crystal (+16 Water), Poison Crystal x4 (+16 Poison), Illusion Crystal x5 (+16

    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.

    the North Grand Plains (where the guards turned you back previously).  Speak 
    to them and exit the area.
    
    Note:  Before you continue, you may want to use some of your Rainbow Cloth to 
    translate some lithographs.
    There's one in Aquitto Spring, but you've already seen this.
    There's one in Marmel Forest.
    There's one in the Scarlet Temple.
    There's one in the Great Cave.
    There's one in West Coast Highway.
    There's one in the Great Desert.
    Another in the Forest of Ocean Mist (the beginning of the Dungeon Portion).
    
    You'll find the rest of them in dungeons throughout the game.

    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.

    Harvested Item: Pure Water (Barrel), Pure Water (Barrel), Tingleberry x3

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    Items: Dragon Shield
    Cole: 1,200
    
    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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

    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.

    Immediately right of the entrance are three plants and a twisty.  Use Wonder

    Crystal. Use a Yugdore Water on the Twisty to obtain SUPER NUE x2. Just south 
    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

    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.

    Since you've finally reached town, you might as well switch to Viese right

    may also want to create a Demon Ring. Also, exit Viese's house for a scene 
    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.

    Follow the path up the screen until you reach the first intersection.  Take a 
    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.  
    Follow the path to the intersection and head right.  Examine the barrels to 
    obtain two PURE WATER. Continue south and head right at the next 
    intersection.  Use a Key of Hermes on the chest at the end of this path to 
    obtain a DAZA'S BELT. Now, head back and follow the path lower left and exit.  
    This opens a path to East Regenbogen.  Immediately re-enter the area, and head 
    back up the the location of the Mystic Beast. 
    
    Here, drop down to the right. Follow this path to the exit, which opens up a

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

                        ~~~ Dark Forest 2 - Zwital Village ~~~
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Characters: Felt, Gray, Fee, Noin, Poe
    Enemies: Jin, Giant Puni, Enchantress, Legion, Sr. Mountain Pig, Uni Virum 
    Stonehead, Mana Cluster
    Bosses: None
    Key Items: Mystic Beast 2, Fairy Tales, Fairy Life 1, Fairy Life 2, Revival, 
    Blacksmith Advanced
    Items: Green Mana, Ankh
    Harvested Items: None
    Elemental Items: None
    
    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!

    Bosses: None

    Pearlberry x3 (Twisty), Pearlberry x2 (Twisty)
    Elemental Items: Aroma Crystal - From Wonder Grow (+16 Aroma), Wood Crystal 
    x2 - From Wonder Grow (+16 Wood), Stone Crystal - From Wonder Grow (+16 
    Stone), Dark Crystal - From Wonder Grow (+16 Dark), Water Crystal x2 - From 
    Wonder Grow (+16 Water)
    
    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 
    a scene.
    
    ******************************************************
    Boss: Slaith's Reincarnation
    Experience: 9,000
    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.

                                ~~~ Dark Spring ~~~

    Rock), Red Legien x9 (Red Rock), Moon Stone x7 (Green Rock)
    Elemental Items: None
    
    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.

    Illusion Crystal x2 (+16 Illusion)
    
    Switch to Viese and watch a scene.
    
    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.

    Yes, we're heading back to the ruins from the very beginning of the game, by 
    Tatalia Village.  Enter them and watch a scene.
    
    Jump up to the upper level and follow the path right.  Head south at the first 
    intersection and take the first right to find the Save Point. Save here and 
    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.

    In Viese's Workshop, you may want to create a Slaith Dress with your new 
    Desert Flower.  Also, create a Comet Gem or two if you don't have any on you, 
    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).

    After speaking with Kreuz, head to Viese's Workshop for a scene. Head to the

    Head back to Viese's Workshop for a scene. Head to Melona's shop (near Viese's 
    house) and speak to Melona. Speak to Coco next for another hint.  Now, enter

    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 
    bottom, use a Hook to climb up to the next level.  Create an item/Destroy the 
    Life Ball here for more rare elements, and open the chest to obtain the 
    SHINING METAL item, which allows Viese to create the Platiin.  Go back to the 
    intersection. Head up the screen here to find two Life balls as well as some 
    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.

    Characters: Felt, Gray, Fee, Noin, Poe
    Enemies: Imperial Soldier, Imperial Guard, Imperial Captain, Relief Soldier, 
    Imperial Commander, Imperial Footman, Imperial Support Soldier, Imperial 
    Archer, General
    Bosses: Galahad, Quetzalcoatl

    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.

    Enemies: Armadillo, Red Puni
    Bosses: None
    Key Items: None
    Items: Gradin Cape, Red Legien x2, Dem Ore x3, Aihie Fungo
    Harvested Items: RED ORE x5 (Yellow Rock), Magi Grass x4 (Plant), Silver 
    Legien x3 (White Rock), Red Ore x6 (Yellow Rock)
    Elemental Items: Fire Crystal x4 - From Wonder Grow (+16 Fire), Stone Crystal -
     From Wonder Grow (+16 Stone)
    
    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.

    Harvested Items: Red Ore x5 (Yellow Rock), Silver Legien x2 (White Rock), Red 
    Legien x6 (Red Rock)
    Elemental Items: None
    
    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.
    
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                         ~~~ East Coast Highway - Max's Camp ~~~
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Characters: Viese, Fee, Gray, Noin
    
    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.
    
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                               ~~~ The Wetlands ~~~

    Enemies: Ice Puni, Master Puni, Witch, Baphy, Floating Fish, Elemental
    Bosses: None
    Key Items: None
    Items: Silver Legien x3
    Harvested Items: Pure Water (Barrel), Ancient Ore (Stalactite), Ancient Ore x2 
    (Stalactite), Ancient Ore x3 (Stalactite), Ancient Ore x3 (Stalactite), 
    Ancient Ore (Stalactite), Ancient Ore x2 (Stalactite), Moon Stone x8 (Green 
    Rock), Ancient Ore x4 (Stalactite), Ancient Ore x2 (Stalactite), Ancient Ore 
    x3 (Stalactite), Ancient Ore (Stalactite), Ancient Ore x2 (Stalactite)
    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.

    When you rtegain control in Riese Palace, speak with Max.  he gives you the 
    BOOK ALHA, which allows you to create the Megido's Key.
    
    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. 
    You'll need to use a Tera Flame to get past the Rock.
    There's a chest to open in West Regenbogen there is another SPIRIT PROTECT for 
    you.
    In South Lake Midgard there is a chest that contains the HOLY SCRIPT, which 
    allows you to make the Cueparts.
    In Sessier Forest (from the Altena Forest side) there is a chest that Contains 
    the SLAITH SONGS, which allows you to create the Moon Drop.
    
    After getting these items, there's a few things we have to do.
    
    Head to Claire Village and use your Megido's Key on the door at the very back 
    of the village.  You can buy the HEAVEN & EARTH recipe from here, which allows 
    you to create the Globe.

    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

    Enter Sessier Forest from the Altena Forest side.  if you haven't already, 
    open that chest for the Slaith Song.  Follow the path left until you reach an 
    intersection. Head up the screen here and use a Megido's Key on the door up 
    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

    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.

    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 
    Palace.  Exit the palace and head to the next area.
    
    Before doing so though, head back to Alha Village and examine the Workshop

    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.

    the rocks you see, to receive ORE x3 and RED LEGIEN x8 (Red Rock) and continue 
    left up the screen to use the FLay Hammer on some more rocks to obtain ORE x2 
    and SHADOW STONE x6.  Use three Grappling Hooks here and reach the highest

    Head left and you encounter your first intersection. Head right, and press 
    against the upper wall to be able to jump up to the higher level.  Here, head 
    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.

    Items: Industrial Alcohol
    Cole: 480
    
    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.

    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.
    
    Watch a scene here.

    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.

    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.
    ******************************************************
    
    Watch a scene, and congratulations^^  Wait until the credits have rolled and 
    save your bonus data. if you examine this, a new stage at the Dragon's Den 
    opens up.

    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.

    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.
