    Section 2: Introduction To Battles In Grandia 3 <Intro>
    -------------------------------------------------------
    The purpose of this FAQ is to answer various questions related to Grandia 3.
    After seeing an influx of multiple topics asking the same questions being posted
    on the GFAQs forums, I decided to compile the information I've gathered on
    battle to contribute to the Grandia 3 community. Any corrections and suggestions
    are welcome. See the contact information section to reach me. Please note that
    this FAQ assumes that you have a general understanding of the game. After all,
    that's what the manual's for. Apart from that, I hope this FAQ will answer the
    majority of the questions that people ask. Credit goes to Ruby Sapphire of the
    GameFAQs forums for the answers to the following questions.
    
    How many characters do you get?
    7 characters. 4 are permanent and 3 are temporary. The temporary characters are
    Miranda, Alonso, and Hect.
    
    What is the gameplay like?
    It is a semi real-time turn based system. A circular gauge appears on the top
    left corner of the screen which shows each character's picture, including the
    enemies. They all move towards a line called the COM line (Command Line) and
    this is where the player can input commands to that character, which are:
    
    Combo - Perform a two hit (or more) attack on an enemy.
    Critical - Perform a single strong attack on an enemy. (Cancel property.)
    Magic - Consume MP to cast a magic spell.
    Special Move - Consume SP to use a special move.
    Item - Use an item.
    Defend - Defend from attack, taking less damage. A player has the option to
    move the character to specified places on the battlefield when used.
    Flee - Run away from battle.
    Strategy - Choose from a set of AI options to set on specific characters. This
    will allow the computer to control that character instead of the player.
    Use Weapon - At times, weapons can be used in battle to cast various effects.
    
    Once an action has been taken, they move along a small red portion of the gauge
    towards the ACT line, where they execute the command given. After that, the
    character goes back to the beginning of the gauge and restarts the whole
    process.
    
    The system adds a bit of strategy to it with 'Canceling'. Each character can
    perform a Critical, which inflicts a single hit of high damage to an enemy. If
    the enemy happens to be on the ACT line while being hit with the critical, the
    enemy's action will be cancelled and will be knocked back to the beginning of
    the gauge. Each character also has a Special Skill that has cancelling
    properties in them and is usually stronger than the usual Critical command.
    
    How do I do Aerial Combos?
    There are several ways to initiate an Aerial Combo.
    
    1. Critical the enemy when the enemy is on the red portion of the gauge. This
    will send the enemy flying to the air. The player should follow up with another
    character with either the 'Combo' command or the 'Critical' command to start
    the Aerial Combo. The combo can be continued with another character as long as
    the enemy is still in the air and the other character is ready to act.
    
    2. Critical the enemy when the enemy is in the middle of being attacked by
    another character's combo. This will send the enemy flying.
    
    3. Enemies can also be sent to the air if they are inflicted with various
    ailments, such as paralysis or sleep.
    
    4. Some magic spells can also send the enemies to the air. Magic such as
    Crackle and Tremor have this effect.
    
    Aerial Combos can help rack up more gold or increase the chances of getting an
    item from the enemy if the enemy is defeated through an Aerial Finish.
    
    How does SP regenerate?
    SP regenerates in battle over time. SP also regenerates when a character
    Attacks enemies or takes damage from enemies. SP can also be restored with
    various SP restoration items.
    
    How do Mana Eggs and Skill Books work?
    For Mana Eggs, you equip them and buy spells for them.
    I'll use an Ether Egg (The most powerful Mana Egg) as an example.
    An Ether Egg boosts all elemental categories by three meters, which I believe
    is the max power. Which means, spells like Galactic Bang (Fire), Meteor Strike
    (Earth), Astraea Zap (Wind), Howlnado (Wind), Alhealer (Water), and Absolute
    Zero (Water) will take less time to charge.
    Skill books are the same. You equip them and buy skills for them.
    I'll use a Master Book (Most powerful Skill Book) as an example.
    The Master Book raises all skill categories by three meters. All of the skills
    will have a better chance of activating or skills that affect stats increase
    more. Sections 5 and 6 of this FAQ will display more information regarding
    these.
    
    What is Mana Egg Fusion and how do you fuse them?
    Mana Egg Fusion is the combining of two Mana Eggs into a different Mana Egg.
    Through fusion, new Mana Eggs are formed and can contain various spells for the
    player to 'extract' and equip on characters. A player can start fusing them in
    the Baccula Settlement. Section 5 of this FAQ will cover each of the eggs in
    greater detail.
    
    What is extraction?
    Extraction is used in the Magic Shop and Skill Shop. In the Magic Shop, the
    player can extract spells from a Mana Egg. However, the Mana Egg used for
    extraction will be destroyed. The same thing applies for the Skill Shop. The
    player can extract skills from a Skill Book but it will be destroyed in the
    process.
    
    How do you get more Special Moves?
    Section 4 of this FAQ has a detailed list regarding special moves acquisition.
    
    What are Secret Methods and what do the letters mean?
    The letters that appear next to the Special Move are:
    P - Increases Power/Effectiveness/Duration of a Special Move. (First Level.)
    S - Decreases charge time of a Special Move.
    P - Increases Power/Effectiveness/Duration of a Special Move. (Second Level.)
    R - Decreases recovery time of a Special Move. 
    P - Increases Power/Effectiveness/Duration of a Special Move. (Max Level.)
    Secret Methods are learned for Special Moves. They help strengthen the special
    moves of each character. Secret Methods can be learned once a Special Move has
    been used after a certain number of uses with some randomness thrown in.
    
    How do you equip high level Mana Eggs/Skill Books?
    All characters have a Skill Level, a Magic Level, and a Special Level. To learn
    more Special Moves, that character has to reach a certain point in Special Level
    to learn it. To equip high level Mana Eggs, that character's Magic Level must
    match the level of the Mana Egg. To equip high level Skill Books, that
    character's Skill Level must match the level of the Skill Book.

    Section 4: Characters, Moves & Secret Methods <Chars>
    ------------------------------------------------------
    This section will reveal each of the characters' statistics such as starting
    stats, starting equipment, growth rates for their stats, as well as their
    relative powers at high levels.
    
    Regarding the stat tables:
    Each character's initial and level 99 base stats are listed here. Please note
    that the stats don't include bonuses from their default equipment, skills, or
    seeds, while assuming they've reached the cap for their magic, skill and
    special levels.
    
    Regarding Special Moves:
    When a character's Special Level hits specific values, choosing to perform a
    combo in battle gives the character a chance to learn new skills. Each character
    earns their moves once the conditions listed below are met. The one exception to
    this rule is Alfina's Armageddon spell, which is learned during a specific point
    in the story. In addition, information concerning each skill and its secret
    methods can be found here. Casting time is defined as the amount of time it
    takes for the character's icon to travel from the COM to ACT points.
    
    Regarding Expert Levels:
    Though there isn't a list that's been released, there are invisible stats that
    keep track of the amount of "Expert exp" the for Magic, Skill and Special
    levels. According to the official guide's chart, every battle a character
    participates in and is alive at the end, gets 8 points to each of the 3
    categories. In addition, each action that at character performs in battle has a
    fixed point value, which is added to the default 8. For example, every time Yuki
    uses the Combo command, he gets an extra 4 points of "Skill Level exp", while
    using magic adds 1 extra point of "Magic Skill exp". Using special moves would
    add 3 points for his "Special Level exp". Once the respective skill exp levels
    are reached, the Magic, Skill, or Special level are increased, just like
    leveling up normally. However, each character's actions give different bonus
    points. This means that performing a combo with Yuki will give him 4 bonus
    points towards Skill level but Alfina would only get 1, while they could be
    reversed with Alfina getting 4 points for using magic, compared to only 1 with
    Yuki. This explains why it's easier for each of the chars to raise specific
    levels faster than the others. Also, Miranda and Alonso only get 4 points toward
    each category after a battle, in addition to only gaining 1 extra point per
    action they perform, explains why they almost never gain skill levels.
    
    Regarding the Expert Level Experience Table:
    this is an experimental attempt at determining how many expert points are
    required to reach the next skill level for the 3 categories, based on each
    character. Theoretically, the table would apply to all characters, which each
    character's growth rate being influenced by the different bonus points which
    are applied to each of their actions in battle. For example, it's easier for
    Yuki to level up Skill level and harder for him to level up Magic level.
    Conversely, Dahna has an easier time raising Magic level, but takes a lot
    longer to level up Skill level.

    Learning a secret method:     "I got it!"
    Winning a battle:             "Alright! We did it!"
    Winning a perfect battle:     "Hey! Were they even trying?"
    Winning a battle with deaths: "Ugh... *gasp* I'm a pilot! I don't have time for
                                   this!"
    Fleeing from a battle:        "You'll never catch us now!"
    
    Special Moves:

    Description:            Yuki runs toward his target, leaps into the air then
                            performs a somersault. Afterwards, grasping
                            his sword with both hands, yells "Here I go!", roars,
                            then slams his sword into his target's head.
    
    Special Properties:     Cancels attacks.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hit, 1.5 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 20%

    Notes:                  Although this is a basic move, its usefulness increases
                            as you progress further into the game, particularly once
                            you reach disk 2.
    
    ---Whirlwind---
    How To Obtain:          Yuki's Special Level is at least 2; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  3 stars
    Range:                  Circle
    SP Cost:                40
    
    Description:            Yuki runs toward his target, yells "Feel the bite of my
                            blade! Whirlwind!", then spins once counter clockwise
                            holding his sword with both hands, creating a whirlwind
                            which damages all enemies around him.
    
    Special Properties:     Wind elemental
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hit, 2.5 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 30%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 1 second
                            P - Total damage increased by 80%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 140%
    
    Notes:                  A useful move, due to its ability to hit more than 1
                            target with a reasonable SP cost. Later, it gets
                            superseded by Dragon Slash.
    
    ---Flash---
    How To Obtain:          Yuki's Special Level is at least 4; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  N/A
    Range:                  Self
    SP Cost:                25
    
    Description:            Yuki spreads his legs to the side, holding his sword in
                            front of him with both hands, roars, says "I feel the
                            power!", and a small whirlwind starts encircling him to
                            show that the buff is in effect.
    
    Special Properties:     Yuki's attack, movement, # of hits with his Combo
                            command/Swallow Slash aerial combo are doubled
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 second casting time, 45 second duration, short
                                   move recovery
                            P - Duration increased by 10%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0.25 seconds
                            P - Duration increased by 25%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Duration increased by 50%
    
    Notes:                  A powerful support move, due to its ability to increase
                            Yuki's damage potential for a small SP cost, and making
                            it harder for him to miss his target due to fatigue. The
                            movement speed increase can also be used to dodge some
                            attacks with the Defend command. Useful even late in the
                            game. Excellent when combined with maxed Berserker and
                            aerial combos.
    
    ---Blade Storm---
    How To Obtain:          Yuki's Special Level is at least 6; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  4 stars
    Range:                  1 enemy
    SP Cost:                50
    
    Description:            Yuki runs toward his target, performs a 9 hit combo,
                            with the 9th hit sending the enemy up into the air. As
                            the enemy falls back down to Yuki, he takes a baseball
                            batter's stance, yells "Take this!" and bats his target
                            across the battlefield with his sword, doing major
                            damage for the 10th hit, while doing minor damage to
                            other enemies his target slams into.
    
    Special Properties:     Wind Elemental
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 10 hits, 2.5 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 30%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 1 second
                            P - Total damage increased by 80%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 140%
    
    Notes:                  A good skill for focusing damage on 1 target. Though the
                            SP cost is a bit steep, it's usually worth the cost. A
                            great skill to use on Lucky Minks as well. Visually
                            enjoyable to watch too.
    
    ---Invincible Aura---
    How To Obtain:          Yuki's Special Level is at least 7; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  N/A
    Range:                  Self
    SP Cost:                75
    
    Description:            Yuki spreads his legs to the side, holding his sword in
                            front of him with both hands and roars. A black and gold
                            dome shaped shield then flashes on and off him to show
                            that the buff is in effect.
    
    Special Properties:     Absorbs damage
    
    Secret Methods:         None - Absorbs 400 damage, 1 second casting time, 40
                                   second duration, long move recovery
                            P - Absorbs 200 extra damage, duration increased by 10%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0.25 seconds
                            P - Absorbs 600 extra damage, duration increased by 25%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Absorbs 1200 extra damage
    
    Notes:                  This move is equivalent to the Crystal Wall spell but
                            has a limited duration. Please note that the shield
                            doesn't protect you from status ailments. Rather high SP
                            cost but could be a lifesaver during boss fights.
                            However, I personally didn't use it much since I prefer
                            using SP for doing damage and cancelling with Aerial
                            Slash.
    
    ---Dragon Slash---
    How To Obtain:          Yuki's Special Level is at least 9; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  6 stars
    Range:                  All Enemies
    SP Cost:                99
    
    Description:            Yuki raises his sword above his head with 1 hand, and
                            golden energy waves begin to gather into his sword.
                            During this time, he yells "Dragon of life, lend me your
                            power!". Once the sword is glowing, he yells "Dragon
                            Slash!" and thrusts his sword into the ground in front
                            of him, creating an energy build up which forms cracks
                            on the ground. After a few seconds, a huge explosion
                            occurs from under the ground, causing extreme damage all
                            enemies on the screen.
    
    Special Properties:     None
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hit, 3 second casting time, long move recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 30%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 1 second
                            P - Total damage increased by 80%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 140%
    
    Notes:                  The 2nd most powerful multi target move in the game,
                            just behind Armageddon, due to its ability to hit all
                            enemies on the screen for massive damage. Best used when
                            there are multiple enemies on the screen which are
                            resistant to magic. The damage caused is well worth the
                            SP cost.

    Description:            Miranda yells "Get ready for a little slice and dice!"
                            then runs toward her target. She then performs a hit 8
                            combo with both daggers in hand, places her right foot
                            on her target's knee, jumps into the air and then kicks
                            her target to the ground at an angle with her other foot
                            while in midair, yelling "Ha!". At the end of the move,
                            she asks "Stings a little, doesn't it?".
    
    Special Properties:     Cancels attacks.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 9 hits, 1.5 second casting time, long move

                            self explanatory.

                            enough for a meal!". She then performs a back flip,
                            says, "But I'll fry you up anyway!" and throws a set of
                            daggers, which hit all enemies within the attack's
                            range.
    
    Special Properties:     Earth elemental
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 3 hits, 2.5 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 30%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 1 second
                            P - Total damage increased by 80%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 140%
    
    Notes:                  A useful move, due to its ability to hit more than 1
                            target with a reasonable SP cost, as long as the enemies
                            are within the skill's range. Though it has more range
                            than Yuki's Whirlwind, it's harder to target multiple
                            enemies at close range. That said, it's best used when
                            she's far away from the group of enemies as possible.

    Special Moves:
    ---Comet Spike---
    How To Obtain:          Alfina knows this move by default
    Power:                  2 stars
    Range:                  1 enemy
    SP Cost:                25
    
    Description:            Alfina raises her staff above her head with both hands
                            and the tip begins to glow with light. She then leans
                            back, says, "Oh divine comet, bringer of light.
                            Illuminate the darkness!" in disk 1 or "Oh divine
                            comet, slice through the pitch black night!" in disk 2,
                            then bends forward, causing the light on the staff to
                            form a projectile which arcs to her target's head.
    
    Special Properties:     Cancels attacks.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hit, 1.5 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 20%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0 (executes instantly)
                            P - Total damage increased by 45%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 75%
    
    Notes:                  This is Alfina's cancel skill, with its usefulness being
                            self explanatory. As I stated with Yuki, its usefulness
                            increases as you progress further into the game.
    
    ---Stun Force---
    How To Obtain:          Alfina's Special Level is at least 2; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  1 star
    Range:                  1 enemy
    SP Cost:                30
    
    Description:            Alfina holds her staff in front of her with 1 hand and
                            spins around once counter clockwise facing her target.
                            She then says, "Sorry, this might hurt!" in disk 1, "I
                            won't hold back!" in disk 2. Shortly, a cage of
                            lightning surrounds and shocks her target, causing minor
                            damage. If her target isn't immune to paralysis, it
                            falls and lies on the ground, paralysed, thus cancelling
                            its attack, with the lightning continuing to surround
                            its body.
    
    Special Properties:     100% chance to paralyse the target as long as it isn't
                            immune to paralysis. In addition, the target's action is
                            cancelled. Duration is dependent on secret methods and
                            the target's INI.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hit, 2 second casting time, 15 second duration,
                                   long recovery
                            P - Damage increased by 20%, duration increased by 10%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0.75 seconds
                            P - Damage increased by 45%, duration increased by 25%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Damage increased by 75%, duration increased by 50%
    
    Notes:                  A fun move to use, as it prevents an enemy from harming
                            the party, provided it's not immune to paralysis. As an
                            additional bonus, it can also be used as a ranged
                            cancel. For some odd reason, it takes Alfina ages to
                            learn this move's secret methods.
    
    ---Ripple Shot---
    How To Obtain:          Alfina's Special Level is at least 4; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  3 stars
    Range:                  Line
    SP Cost:                40
    
    Description:            Alfina holds her staff in overhead and in front her with
                            both hands and the tip begins to glow with light. She
                            then spins around counter clockwise twice, while saying,
                            "A blade of light to strike out at our enemies!",
                            followed by "Ha!" in disk 1 and "You won't escape!" in
                            disk 2. As she completes the 2nd spin, the light on the
                            staff forms takes the shape of a chakram and travels in
                            a line in front of her, damaging all enemies it hits.
    
    Special Properties:     None
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hit, 2.5 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 30%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 1 second
                            P - Total damage increased by 80%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 140%
    
    Notes:                  A useful addition to Alfina's arsenal, which gives her
                            the ability to hit more than 1 target without using MP.
                            The damage is worth the SP cost, as long as you hit
                            enough enemies. Line up your shots for maximum damage.
    
    ---Holy Circle---
    How To Obtain:          Alfina's Special Level is at least 6; choose the Combo
                            command in
                            battle
    Power:                  N/A
    Range:                  Self
    SP Cost:                60
    
    Description:            Alfina holds her staff in front of her with both hands,
                            concentrates and says, "Oh divine light, protect me!".
                            3 spheres of holy energy then encircle her which inflict
                            damage, repel and knock down any enemies that touch
                            them.
    
    Special Properties:     Enemies hit by any of the 3 spheres take minor damage
                            but are pushed back slightly and knocked down.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 second casting time, 40 second duration, short
                                   recovery
                            P - Duration increased by 10%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0.25 seconds
                            P - Duration increased by 25%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Duration increased by 50%
    
    Notes:                  This is Alfina's self buff and shouldn't be used very
                            often. However, this move works well when facing lots of
                            monsters who need to get into melee range to attack. As
                            another merit to this skill, it's pretty hard to resist
                            laughing when an enemy is stupid enough to keep running
                            into the spheres, only to get hurt and repelled over and
                            over again until the monster stops due to fatigue. For
                            icing on the cake, command her to either move towards
                            enemies or attack them so her attacks can sometimes
                            stack with the sphere hits.
    
    ---Energy Drive---
    How To Obtain:          Alfina's Special Level is at least 8; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  N/A
    Range:                  All allies except herself
    SP Cost:                50
    
    Description:            Alfina closes her eyes and holds her staff in front of
                            her horizontally and chants, "Oh nurturing sun.". She
                            then puts it away and begins floating slightly above the
                            ground, legs spread and her body begins to glow. Upon
                            reaching the ground again, she prays and chants "Bring
                            courage and love to us all!". During the middle of the
                            phrase, she lifts her arms into the air, causing a
                            pillar of light to shine on her. Several spheres of holy
                            energy then travel outward toward the edge of the
                            screen, restoring SP to all allies, except herself. As
                            the spheres go off screen and the pillar fades, she
                            yells, "Now let's fight!".
    
    Special Properties:     Alfina herself doesn't regain the SP granted by this
                            move.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - Restores 25 SP, 1 second casting time, long
                                   recovery
                            P - Restores 40 SP
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0.25 seconds
                            P - Restores 55 SP
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Restores 75 SP
    
    Notes:                  This move is among the best in the game, especially when
                            fully developed. When fully upgraded, this move is
                            deadly against your foes as an extra surge of 75 SP to
                            everyone else can dramatically increase your party's
                            total damage, by granting the ability use powerful
                            skills like Dragon Slash, Dynamite Rush and Armageddon,
                            multiple times in the same battle, without the use of
                            rare SP recovery items like Warrior's Tonic. In
                            addition, you can abuse this skill to to speed up the
                            process of upgrading the rest of the party's skills. For
                            maximum carnage, equip Alfina with the Fighting Spirit
                            skill, Warrior's Charm and slam down Warrior's Tonics
                            during tough fights. A truly outstanding move. Max this
                            ASAP! You'll be glad you did.
    
    ---Armageddon---
    How To Obtain:          Alfina rejoins for the final battle
    Power:                  6 stars
    Range:                  All enemies
    SP Cost:                99
    
    Description:            Alfina closes her eyes and begins to float high into the
                            air, chanting "Let your anger and your hate be devoured
                            by the divine light." as her body is engulfed by a
                            golden light. She then says, "Your suffering is over."
                            and light descends to the ground, creating an explosion
                            which causes extreme damage, in addition to the effects
                            I listed in the special properties section.
    
    Special Properties:     Lowers all surviving enemies' atk, def, res, ini and mov
                            for the prescribed duration, based on the number of
                            secret methods learned. This is also the only way for
                            the player to cause the Offense/Defense/Speed Down
                            status ailments, as these spells have been stripped from
                            us this time around, making it even more valuable.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hit, 3 second casting time, long move recovery
                            P - Damage increased by 30%, duration increased by 10%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 1.5 seconds
                            P - Damage increased by 80%, duration increased by 25%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Damage increased by 140%, duration increased by 50%
    
    Notes:                  The most powerful multi target move, and arguably the
                            most powerful move in the game, with its only rivals
                            being Yuki's Dragon Slash and Ulf's Dynamite Rush.
                            Though Dragon Slash's damage potential is nearly
                            identical, the main reason that that this skill is
                            better is because of the Offense/Defense/Speed Down
                            debuffs that this move inflicts on any survivors of this
                            attack.

    ---Thrust Crash---
    
    How To Obtain:          Alonso knows this move by default
    Power:                  2 stars
    Range:                  1 enemy
    SP Cost:                25
    
    Description:            Alonso rushes toward his target, jabs it with his spear,
                            and guts it a 2nd time, saying "Heard something snap
                            there." at the end of the move.
    
    Special Properties:     Cancels attacks.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 2 hits, 1.5 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 20%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0 (executes instantly)
                            P - Total damage increased by 45%

    Notes:                  This is Alonso's cancel skill, with its usefulness being
                            self explanatory. As I stated with Yuki, its usefulness
                            increases as you progress further into the game.
    
    ---Lancer Smash---
    How To Obtain:          Alonso knows this move by default
    Power:                  4 stars

    SP Cost:                40
    
    Description:            Alonso charges his target, jabs it, which sends it
                            flying into straight up into the air. He then jumps and
                            skewers it with his spear in midair for the 2nd hit,
                            says "Time to get down and dirty!", then slams the
                            target back down to the ground for the 3rd hit.
    
    Special Properties:     None
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 3 hits, 2 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 30%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0.75 seconds
                            P - Total damage increased by 80%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 140%
    
    Notes:                  At 4 stars, this move is certainly damaging during this
                            part of the game. Use it against stronger creatures.

                            almost completely perpendicular to the ground, and says
                            "This might...", slams it into his target as he
                            completes the sentence with "sting a little!".
    
    Special Properties:     Cancels attacks.

                            dishes out the pain with this move, from the moment he
                            joins your party, right up to the end of the game.

    Description:            Ulf curls up building up power and begins to roar. He
                            then yells "Force Wave" as he uncurls, releasing a fast,
                            but short ranged shockwave that damages and pushes away
                            all enemies around him.

                            P - Total damage increased by 30%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0.25 seconds
                            P - Total damage increased by 80%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 140%
    
    Notes:                  A skill that does nice damage for little SP. The only
                            downside is that the enemies must be close enough to him
                            to take damage. Best used when starting a battle
                            surrounded by the enemy, since you're most likely to
                            nail every enemy, thanks to its fast casting time.
    
    ---Flame Spike---

    SP Cost:                40
    
    Description:            Ulf puts his flail on the ground, begins to roar and
                            conjures a fireball. He then leaps into the air, yells
                            "Flame spike!" and throws it toward his target for good
                            damage.

    Notes:                  A straightforward move with is particularly useful
                            against foes which are weak against fire attacks.
    
    ---Big Wheel---
    How To Obtain:          Ulf's Special Level is at least 6; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  2 stars
    Range:                  Line
    SP Cost:                50
    
    Description:            Ulf rolls up into a ball, says "Heh. No one can stop me
                            now!" then rolls toward his target at high speed,
                            looking like a ball of lightning, doing above average
                            damage and cancelling every enemy's attack within his
                            path. Once he stops rolling, he stands back up and says
                            Hmph! Ha! What a rush!".
    
    Special Properties:     Capable of cancelling multiple enemies' attacks.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hits, 2.5 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 30%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 1 second
                            P - Total damage increased by 80%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 140%
    
    Notes:                  Grandia 2 fans will remember this move being similar to
                            Tio's Lotus Flower. Being able to cancel multiple
                            targets at once with only a 1 second casting time when
                            upgraded, it's a very useful move that's worth maxing
                            out quickly. Also keep in mind that this move does more
                            damage compared to Rockbreaker, with double the SP cost
                            as the tradeoff.
    
    ---Shadow Warrior---
    How To Obtain:          Ulf's Special Level is at least 7; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  N/A
    Range:                  Self
    SP Cost:                25
    
    Description:            Ulf steps forward with his left leg and touches his
                            forehead with his left hand to concentrate a little.
                            Shortly after, he clenches his left hand into a fist and
                            says "Bet you can't tell which one is me!", and dark
                            energy ways flow in this body. He then stands back up
                            and says, "Haha! Keep an eye on my shadow!", with a
                            black whirlwind encircling him to show that the buff is
                            in effect.
    
    Special Properties:     Ulf's shadow will appear and add an additional hit to
                            his target every time he performs a Combo or Critical.
                            Also, please note that his aerial combo finisher You're
                            Finished! triggers the shadow to appear at the end of
                            the move, doubling it's already massive damage for even
                            more pain.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 second casting time, 45 second duration, short
                                   recovery
                            P - Duration increased by 10%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0.25 seconds
                            P - Duration increased by 25%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Duration increased by 50%
    
    Notes:                  Similar to Yuki's Flash move, this is a powerful support
                            move, due to its ability to increase Ulf's damage
                            potential for a small SP cost. Although it doesn't boost
                            movement speed like Flash, it's big selling point comes
                            into play when you manage to pull off his "You're
                            Finished" aerial combo finisher. Also, like Yuki's
                            Flash, this move works well with the Berserker skill.
    
    ---Inferno Spike---
    How To Obtain:          Ulf's Special Level is at least 8; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  3 stars
    Range:                  Circle
    SP Cost:                60
    
    Description:            Ulf puts his flail on the ground, begins to roar and
                            conjures a large fireball, saying "Get ready to fry,
                            maggots!" as he creates it. He then leaps into the air,
                            yells "Inferno spike!" and throws it toward his target,
                            damaging all enemies around it for high damage.
    
    Special Properties:     Fire elemental
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hit, 3 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 30%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 1.25 seconds
                            P - Total damage increased by 80%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 140%
    
    Notes:                  A useful move, due to its ability to hit more than 1
                            target with a higher damage potential. Use it in a
                            similar way as you would use Yuki's Whirlwind move. Just
                            keep the increased SP cost in mind.
    
    ---Red Lotus---
    How To Obtain:          Ulf's Special Level is at least 9; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  5 stars
    Range:                  Line
    SP Cost:                75
    
    Description:            Ulf spins his flail at high speed, roaring as his weapon
                            lights up with fire, saying "These flames are scorching
                            hot!" as it grows in intensity. He then yells "10000
                            degrees of death! Hiyaaa!!", and swings his flail,
                            causing the flames to travel toward his target, causing
                            high damage to all enemies it hits.
    
    Special Properties:     Fire elemental
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hit, 2 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 30%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0.75 seconds
                            P - Total damage increased by 80%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 140%
    
    Notes:                  Functionality wise, this is Ripple Shot on steroids. Use
                            it in a similar fashion, keeping in mind that the damage
                            is much higher, as a result of the increased SP cost.
    
    ---Dynamite Rush---
    How To Obtain:          Ulf's Special Level is at least 10; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  6 stars
    Range:                  1 enemy
    SP Cost:                99
    
    Description:            Ulf crosses his arms in front of him, roars and a pillar
                            of fire and rocks surround him. With his arms now at the
                            side of his head, he then yells, "I'm loaded with....
                            dynamite! Hiyaaaa!!!", and charges into his target. Upon
                            impact, the explosive force of the dynamite blows him
                            away from his target, causing him to lie down on his
                            back, motionless as the remaining sticks detonate on the
                            target's body, causing very high damage per hit. After
                            the final explosion, Ulf slowly stands up, feeling
                            disoriented and saying "Ugh... I don't feel so good".
    
    Special Properties:     None
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 10 hits, 2.5 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 30%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 1 second
                            P - Total damage increased by 80%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 140%
    
    Notes:                  Perhaps the most powerful single target move in the
                            game, due to its ability to inflict over 1600 points of
                            damage on a single target per hit. If combined with the
                            Hunter series of skills, this move can allow Ulf to
                            inflict over 16000 points of damage for 99 SP.
                            Pure dynamite! (Sorry for the pun.)

                            card. Any card." 6-10 cards then materialize in front of
                            her, then all but the last of them home in on her
                            target, causing damage with each hit. After a brief
                            pause, the last card homes in her target, causing damage
                            and knocking it down.
    
    Special Properties:     Cancels attacks.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 6 hits, 1.5 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - 7 hits, total damage increased by 20%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0 (executes instantly)
                            P - 8 hits, total damage increased by 45%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - 10 hits, total damage increased by 75%
    
    Notes:                  This is Dahna's cancel skill, with its usefulness being
                            self explanatory. Use it as you would with everyone
                            else's versions.
    
    ---Mana Capture---
    How To Obtain:          Dahna knows this move by default
    Power:                  1 star
    Range:                  Circle
    SP Cost:                40
    
    Description:            Dahna asks her targets, "Pardon me, but would you mind
                            sharing?" as she conjures a pink bolt and throws it
                            towards her target. The bolt then opens a little vortex,
                            causing light damage to all enemies in the attack's
                            range and siphoning energy. The vortex then closes,
                            becomes another pink bolt which Dahna grabs and absorbs
                            it into her body, restoring 20% of the total damage
                            inflicted as MP for her to use. After the absorption she
                            laughs softly and says, "Thanks!".
    
    Special Properties:     Cancels attacks.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hit, 1.5 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 20%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0 (executes instantly)
                            P - Total damage increased by 45%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 75%
    
    Notes:                  This move is unique in the sense that its purpose isn't
                            to do damage. Rather, it's used to allow Dahna to
                            replenish her MP reserves quickly without the usage of
                            items. If used well, this move can restore hundreds of
                            MP at a time, allowing her to continuing unleashing her
                            deadly but expensive spells.
    
    ---Dancing Cards---
    How To Obtain:          Dahna's Special Level is at least 7; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  N/A

    SP Cost:                25
    
    Description:            Dahna bends back, holding her hands together behind her
                            head and chants "Oh cards of light. Hear my call." then
                            extends her arms in front of her. At this moment, 4-10
                            cards materialize around her and as the last one spawns,
                            she says, "Protect me!", which makes the cards begin to
                            fly her.
    
    Special Properties:     Counterattacks enemies. However, with some
                            experimentation, choosing to perform a Critical makes
                            these cards home in the target, setting up a more
                            reliable chance at setting up aerial combos.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 4 cards, 1 second casting time, 40 second
                                   duration, medium recovery
                            P - 6 cards, duration increased by 10%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0.25 seconds
                            P - 8 cards, duration increased by 25%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - 10 cards, duration increased by 50%
    
    Notes:                  These cards attack enemies that go after her. However,
                            their behavior is erratic so I'll need to do more
                            research regarding this move.
    
    ---Mana Spring---
    How To Obtain:          Dahna's Special Level is at least 8; choose the Combo
                            command in battle
    Power:                  N/A
    Range:                  Self
    SP Cost:                75
    
    Description:            Dahna bends back, holding her hands together behind her
                            head and chants "Oh endless spring of magic power, I
                            call on you!" then extends her arms in front of
                            her. At this moment, a pink vortex appears at her feet,
                            which follows her around as she walks.
    
    Special Properties:     All of Dahna's spells will require no MP to cast as long
                            as this is in effect.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 4 second casting time, 50 second duration, short
                            move recovery
                            P - Duration increased by 10%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 1.25 seconds
                            P - Duration increased by 25%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Duration increased by 50%
    
    Notes:                  This skill is valuable in the endgame and during boss
                            fights as it allows Dahna to cast her most powerful
                            spells without any concern for rationing her MP, which
                            in turn allows her to reach her full damage potential
                            when it's needed the most. A great move to develop
                            because the longer duration will help compensate for its
                            high SP cost.

    ---Crimson Shock---
    How To Obtain:          Hect knows this move by default
    Power:                  1 star
    Range:                  All enemies
    SP Cost:                40
    
    Description:            Hect raises her baton above her head, spins around once,
                            says, "Here I go!", and hops. About a second after
                            landing, a shockwave emerges and travels at lightning
                            speed, causing damage to and knocking all enemies on the
                            screen down. At the end of the move, she asks, "Was that
                            ok?".
    
    Special Properties:     Cancels attacks.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hit, 1 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Total damage increased by 30%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0.25 seconds
                            P - Total damage increased by 80%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Total damage increased by 140%
    
    Notes:                  Hect's cancel skill is unique in several ways, both with
                            unique advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side,
                            it nails every enemy on the screen and has the fastest
                            execution time of all the other cancels when none are
                            upgraded. The downside? Well, even with the speed
                            upgrade, it's still not instant cast. In addition, this
                            skill consumes 15 more SP compared to the standard
                            variants the other characters have, making it harder to
                            use more often. But with both sides considered, use it
                            at your discretion though it's obviously great when you
                            can cancel multiple enemies at once.
    
    ---Freeze---
    How To Obtain:          Hect knows this move by default
    Power:                  N/A
    Range:                  1 enemy
    SP Cost:                75
    
    Description:            Hect waves her baton in front as if she was conducting.
                            While facing her target, she says, "Hear me, evil-doers.
                            Stop! Freeze!" while spinning counter clockwise twice,
                            and a red vortex appears at her feet. As she continues
                            to spin, vortex moves toward her target, paralysing it
                            if isn't immune to paralysis. Her target then falls and
                            lies on the ground, paralysed, thus cancelling its
                            attack, suffering additional damage over time.
    
    Special Properties:     100% chance to paralyse the target as long as it isn't
                            immune to paralysis. In addition, the target's action is
                            cancelled. Duration is dependent on secret methods and
                            the target's INI. This move is similar to Milennia's
                            Spellbinding Eye in Grandia 2.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 second casting time, 15 second duration, long
                                   recovery
                            P - Duration increased by 10%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 0.25 seconds
                            P - Duration increased by 25%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Duration increased by 50%
    
    Notes:                  This move is quite similar to Alfina's Stun Force, from
                            a strategic point of view, though you must keep the
                            higher SP cost in mind. On the plus side, this move
                            executes 0.5 seconds faster than Alfina's Stun Force.
                            With these factors in mind, use this move at your
                            discretion.

                            soothed by this divine melody.", as a huge golden sphere
                            of light appears in front of her. She then says, "Your
                            suffering is over." and light descends to the ground,
                            creating an explosion which causes extreme damage, in
                            addition to the effects I'll list in the special
                            properties section.
    
    Special Properties:     Lowers all surviving enemies' atk, def, res, ini and mov
                            for the prescribed duration, based on the number of
                            secret methods learned. This is also the only way for
                            the player to cause the Offense/Defense/Speed Down
                            status ailments, as these spells have been stripped from
                            us this time around, making it even more valuable.
    
    Secret Methods:         None - 1 hit, 3 second casting time, long recovery
                            P - Damage increased by 30%, duration increased by 10%
                            S - Casting time reduced to 1.5 seconds
                            P - Damage increased by 80%, duration increased by 25%
                            R - Move recovery time eliminated
                            P - Damage increased by 140%, duration increased by 50%
    
    Notes:                  The most powerful multi target move, and arguably the
                            most powerful move in the game, with its only rivals
                            being Yuki's Dragon Slash and Ulf's Dynamite Rush.
                            Though Dragon Slash's damage potential is nearly
                            identical, the main reason that that this skill is
                            better is because of the Offense/Defense/Speed Down
                            debuffs that this move inflicts on any survivors of this
                            attack. Later inherited by Alfina.

    This table is designed to ease the pain of comparing the various boosts, level,
    and spells which are extracted from every egg, making it easier to determine
    which eggs should be equipped or destroyed to outfit and customize your
    characters.
    
    Each "*" denotes 1 boost level to magic for the element it falls under.
    
    "Lvl" denotes the magic skill level that's required for a character to equip it,
    and is also used in the fusion process.
    
    "Spells Extracted" lists which spells are obtained when you destroy each egg.
    Please note that extracting magic from an egg permanently destroys the egg in
    question. Be careful when using fusion.

          Section 6a: Skill Book Table <BookTable>
          ----------------------------------------
    This table is designed to ease the pain of comparing the various boosts, level,
    and skills which are extracted from every book, making it easier to determine
    which books should be equipped or destroyed to outfit and customize your
    characters.
    
    Each "*" denotes 1 boost level to skills for the school it falls under.
    
    "Lvl" denotes the skill level that's required for a character to equip it.
    
    "Qty" denotes the number of copies of the book that are available in the game. I
    felt this was necessary so you don't accidentally burn 1 of a kind books that
    you want to keep. Only the Lucky Book has infinite copies because it's a monster
    drop.
    
    "Skills Extracted" lists which skills are obtained when you burn each book.
    Please note that extracting skills from a book permanently destroys the book in
    question. Be careful when extracting skills.

    "Power" denotes an abstract scaling of each spell's power for comparison
    purposes, and doesn't reflect actual gameplay numbers. These numbers were
    derived directly from Brady's Official Grandia 3 Guide.
    
    "Boost 0" through "Boost 3" denote the separate effectiveness levels of each of
    the spells, as they're boosted by mana eggs.
    
    "Range" denotes the target selection attribute of each spell according to the
    legend below:

    to the center of the battlefield to either set up other attacks or make regular
    attacks fail due to fatigue.

    Section 8: Book Skills <Skills>
    -------------------------------
    This section will list each of the 42 skills that exist in Grandia 3, as well as
    their various degrees of effectiveness, when equipped with skill books.
    Locations are shown as well in a separate table due to space limitations.
    
          -------------------------------------
          Section 8a: Skill Table <SkillTable>
          -------------------------------------
    Just like how mana eggs boost magic, skill books boost the effectiveness of
    skills. This table will show each skill's effectiveness at each level, as well
    as a description of what the skill does. "Lv0" through "Lv3" state these values.
    
    "Slots" simply means how many skill slots are required to equip the skill.
    Naturally, more powerful skills require more slots to equip.

    Section 9: Orbs <Orbs>
    ----------------------
    As you progress in the game, your party will earn the ability to use orbs which
    contain the powers of 4 different guardians. Once you use any of them, you must
    refill the orb gauge (which is located on the top right of the battle screen)
    by defeating enemies before you can use any of them again. Each orb also
    provides various benefits to the party and they're listed below, in order of
    acquisition. All orbs are obtained during the story so you don't have to worry
    about missing any of them. Though I don't know exactly how long these orbs
    last, I'm guessing that they last for 60 seconds. An accurate duration would
    be greatly appreciated.
    
    Drak's Orb:       Initially causes a huge amount of fire damage to all enemies
                      on the screen. If there are any enemies still alive, the orb
                      will continually shoot fireballs which further damage and
                      knock them down.
    
    Yoat's Orb:       Revives dead members, heals over time, and cleanses negative
                      status effects.
    
    Seiba's Orb:      Keeps the party buffed with WOW!, Diggin' and Runner. In other
                      words, attack power is increased by 20%, defense and
                      resistance are increased by 40%, and finally, Initiative and
                      Move are increased by 50%.
    
    Unama's Orb:      Freezes time for all enemies, allowing your party to either
                      recover or pound them without fear of retaliation. Useful for
                      killing Lucky Minks.
    
    -----------------------------------
    Section 10: Tips and Exploits <Tips>
    -----------------------------------
    This section outlines and categorizes various strategies which allow you to
    exploit various parts of the game.
    
          -------------------------------------
          Section 10a: Egg Farming <Egg Farming>
          -------------------------------------
    The reason these exploits work is because they take advantage of the fact that
    leaving an area and re-entering it, the urns, flowers, mushrooms, etc respawn,
    thus giving you the chance to obtain more eggs. These tricks allow you to make
    the most powerful eggs and earn the most powerful spells in the game earlier
    than you would normally. You heard me right. Ether Eggs and high end spells
    like Galactic Bang, Absolute Zero and Astraea Zap can all be obtained the moment
    you have access to mana egg fusion. As tempting as it may be to equip all the
    best spells, keep the high MP costs required to cast these spells in mind before
    you dry up your MP reserves.
    
    For Bomb and Stone eggs:
    
    Once you get Dahna in Baccula, you can exploit the Stone and Bomb Eggs spawns in
    the Baculla Ruins - Sandy Path  The urns in this part of the game have a random
    chance of dropping Bomb and Stone eggs.
    
    For Flare Eggs:
    
    The urns in Baculla Ruins - Earth Shrine drop these eggs.
    
    For Leaf Eggs:
    
    Head for either Dragon Valley (Rocky Terrace) or Vejas Ruins (Jungle Path) and
    break the flowers and mushrooms respectively. If you're feeling lucky and up to
    it, slay the Arlaunes in Vejas Ruins and you might be able to obtain the
    Blood Hammer for Ulf. This flail allows him to restore HP every time he attacks,
    as long as he's not attacking undead. With Yuki's Heaven Blade and Legendary
    Thief maxed, these enemies can also supply you with Shining Nuts and Crimson
    Potions.
    
    For Aqua, Wind, and Frost Eggs:
    
    The Silver Stream in the Verse Realm in disk 2's your destination this time,
    with the breakable glass mushrooms, being the suppliers of these eggs.
    
    For Wind and Cyclone Eggs:
    
    Nautica Plains (Great Plains) map west of Baculla's your destination this time,
    with the breakable mushrooms, being the suppliers of these eggs. If you're
    feeling lucky and up to it, slay the Woolwools here for a chance to get some
    Lucky Books.
    
    Eggs from monster drops:
    
    Many of the enemies in this game drop eggs rather frequently when using
    Legendary Thief and Yuki's Heaven Blade. I'll add more places as I discover
    Them but for the time being, Raflid - Northern Alps and the Vejas Ruins maps
    are good sources for eggs.
    
          --------------------------------
          Section 10b: Gold Farming <Gold>
          --------------------------------
    Your 1st chance to rack up the gold is when you hit Arcriff Forest. Spend time
    killing BaaBaas as they give 80 gold each and sometimes drop Sheepskin, which
    sells for 1000 gold at the General Store inside Arcriff.
    
    Baccula Ruins (Sandy Path) is your next opportunity here. The trick this time
    around lies with the 2 groups of urns that lie east of the entrance when
    entering this map from Baccula. Repeatedly walk back and forth between the 3
    urns close to the entrance, just past the formerly locked door, and the cluster
    of 9 urns on the 2nd level. The urns drop Topaz Rings pretty often, which sell
    for 1500 each. As an added bonus, 1 monster encounter which separates the
    clusters gives a god 600+ exp, as well as an endless supply of Stone and Bomb
    Eggs.
    
    Once you enter the Verse Realm, The Silver Stream is the place to be this time.
    The strategy and benefits of this place is exactly like Baccula Ruins
    (Sandy Path), except that this time, the glass mushrooms drop Amethyst Rings,
    which sell for 2500 gold each. As an added bonus, these mushrooms also drop
    Aqua, Wind, and Frost Eggs. For icing on the cake, the 2 Gigas Thetas monster
    encounter is also a nice way to bag over 1000 exp per battle with relative ease,
    along with a small chance of getting some Power Seeds (0.04% chance), Miracle
    Elixirs (6.25% chance), and even Amethyst Rings (2.5% chance) on the side.
    
    Last but not least, the corridor before the final boss is particularly lucrative
    with all party members equipped with maxed Legendary Thief, and Yuki with his
    Heaven Blade. Once you already have a Spirit Sword and Spirit Staff, farm all
    the monsters here because each Spirit Sword that an Excise Omega drops sells for
    32000 gold. The Demon Lords also drop Thor's Boots, which are crappy compared to
    Warp Boots. A pair of those sells for 16500 gold. As an added bonus, as you're
    killing these guys, you'll get truckloads of stat boosting seeds to really
    strengthen your characters. If you're willing to part with your 2 Veteran Books
    extract the Verse Hunter skill from each of the and equip them, along with Demon
    Hunter on Yuki and Ulf, to allow them to do maximum damage to the majority of
    the enemies here.
    
    Last but not least, equip the Luck skill with a book to max it out, then farm
    the Desert Lord for 4000 gold before the Luck skill's effects.
    
          ------------------------------
          Section 10c: Exp Farming <Exp>
          ------------------------------
    As a general rule of thumb, look for places with rainbow save spheres, which
    have monsters that yield good exp, with an easy way to leave and re-enter the
    area to force a respawn. These are areas I can think of off the top of my head
    which provide good exp.
    
    While farming bomb and stone eggs in Baculla Ruins - Sandy Path, the encounter
    with 2 Skeletal Warriors and the Undead Mage, which patrols the bridge very
    close to the room with 9 urns on the 2nd floor give 647 exp a pop.
    
    The gargoyles on the way to Herasell are good for gathering exp quickly.
    
    The 2 Gigas Theta encounter in Verse Realm - Silver Stream gives a little over
    1000 exp and are rather easy to kill. In addition, this spawn is very close
    to the map exit so it's easy to leave and re-enter the area to make it
    respawn.
    
    All the enemies in Surmania Ruins - Cursed Tower not only give good exp, they
    also drop seeds, as well as the Spirit Sword and Spirit Staff.
    
    However, to really rack up the exp, the Lucky Mink is
    the enemy you want to farm. These fast critters yield 16384 exp. Even though
    they only have 18HP, even our strongest attacks will only cause 0 or 1 damage.
    If that wasn't bad enough, they also try to run away from battle often. Anyway,
    they're found in Melc Ruins and in Surmania Ruins. The best strategy here is to
    use Unama's Orb with this particular encounter to freeze time. Since the Orb
    prevents the minks from fleeing, you have extra time to kill them. Since they
    always take 0-1 damage, using multi hit skills and spells as often as possible.
    Galactic Bang and Heaven's Gate are ideal. Flash with maxed Berserker on Yuki
    and Shadow Warrior on Ulf (also with maxed Berserker) work well too. In the
    Heart Of The Underground maze, there's a fixed encounter with has 3 Lucky Minks
    and a Calibus. With maxed out Hero's Talent, this fight can net you 102004 exp
    for only 1 fight! Regardless of where you farm, make sure every has Hero's
    Talent equipped and boosted to maximum. On a side note, once you reach a high
    enough level (I think 65+), the exp required for future levels won't exceed
    65535 (FFFF in hex) points. At level 99, a character will have exactly 3.5
    million total exp.
    
          --------------------------------------
          Section 10d: Rare Item Farming <Rares>
          --------------------------------------
    Though this is easier said than done, the best way to maximize your chances is
    to do the following:
    
    1) Get a Lucky Book to drop off of a Lucky Mink. They're found in Melc Ruins and
    in Surmania Ruins. The best strategy here is to save your game with your orb
    gauge full and having Unama available. Get into a battle with a Lucky Mink in it
    and immediately use Unama's Orb to freeze time. The Orb prevents the critter
    from running away. Since they always take 0-1 damage, use multi hit skills and
    spells. Galactic Bang and Heaven's Gate are ideal. Flash with maxed Berserker on
    Yuki and Shadow Warrior on Ulf (also with maxed Berserker) work well too. If the
    book doesn't drop after you kill it, reload the game and try again. Eventually,
    you'll get one.
    
    2) Extract the Legendary Thief skill from the Lucky Book and equip it on Yuki.
    Also, make sure you equip a book to boost Legendary Thief's effectiveness to
    max.
    
    3) Farm Forest Protectors in Vejas Ruins until they drop a Heaven Blade. Sadly,
    you can't use aerial combos because they possess the Unshakable Will skill.
    
    4) With Yuki equipped with the blade and maxed Legendary Thief skill, do your
    best kill the enemies which drop the desired items with aerial combo finishes.
    Refer to the list below and kill the appropriate enemies to obtain the items
    you desire.

          ---------------------------------
          Section 10e: Stat Maxing <Maxing>
          ---------------------------------
    Surmania Ruins is the place to max out your stats. In particular, the corridor
    before the final boss, as well as the prior room are particularly lucrative with
    all party members equipped with maxed Legendary Thief, and Yuki with his Heaven
    Blade. Once you already have a Spirit Sword and Spirit Staff, your life will
    become easier. The goal here is to farm all the monsters here with reckless
    abandon. If you're willing to part with your 2 Veteran Books, extract the Verse
    Hunter skill from each of the 2 books and equip both Verse Hunter skills, along
    with Demon Hunter on Yuki and Ulf, to allow them to do maximum damage to the
    Demon Lords, Last Keepers and Excise Omegas.
    
    Refer to the table below and kill the appropriate enemies to obtain the seeds
    you desire.
    
    Seed      Effect      Enemy            Location Of Enemy
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Life      +10 Max HP  Demon Lord       Surmania Ruins - Cursed Tower

    Spirit    +3 RES      Aton Omega       Surm. Ruins -Heart Of Underground Maze
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Please note that using a seed will also restore all HP, MP and SP.

    Section 11: Other Frequently Asked Questions <FAQs>
    ---------------------------------------------------
    
    Question: When will you add to or update your FAQ?
    Answer:   I'll do so when demand and desire dictate. After all, there's always
              work. At the same time, I'm still playing World Of Warcraft so might
              keep me distracted.
    
    Question: How long is this game?
    Answer:   The whole journey can take up to 30-35 hours max.
    
    Question: Do I have to play the previous Grandia games to understand this one?
    Answer:   No. The Grandia games are not connected in anyway.
    
    Question: Does this game have any sidequests?
    Answer:   The only sidequests in this game are gambling at Bianca's Casino for
              items, as well as Otto's 5 cases.
    
    Question: Does this game have a New Game+ feature?
    Answer:   Sadly, no.
     
    Question: Are Freeze! and Cold in this game?
    Answer:   Armageddon's the only skill that the player can use to lower enemies'
              speed and movement this time around. I was pretty bummed about this as
              well. I can only assume that Game Arts found it to be overpowered. Why
              you ask? This is just my personal opinion but in Grandia 2, Cold and
              Freeze! made bosses too easy because you could slow their IP gauge to
              a snail's pace and make their regular attacks futile as they'd never
              reach their target. Conversely, you could stack Speedy and use items
              to get Ryudo to +5 Act status. Combine that with 2 maxed out Speed Up
              skills and you'll see his IP gauge blaze through as if he was
              Melfice, while the boss' gauge would move at Mareg's speed.
    
    Question: I keep hearing that Galactic Bang is good and how do you get it?
    Answer:   Cluster and Ether Eggs net you Galactic Bang when extracted. Of the
              2, the former's easier to obtain. An easy way to get Cluster eggs is
              to farm 1 Stone Egg and 2 Bomb Eggs from Baccula Ruins - Sandy Path
              for each copy of the spell you want. This is what you do:
    
              1) Fuse the 1st Bomb Egg with the Stone Egg to create a Blast Egg.
              2) Fuse the Blast Egg you just made with the 2nd Bomb Egg to create a
                 Cluster Egg.
              3) Extract Galactic Bang and Quake from the Cluster Egg.
    
    Question: Are there any SP recovery items? If so, what're they called and where
              do you get them?
    Answer:   All the SP recovery items must be found or earned through the casino.
              They are:
    
              Warrior's Tonic: Restores 100 SP
              Enemies:
              Aton Delta
              Aton Omega
              Bigfoot
              Gilled Sniper
              Skeleton Knight
              Skeleton Warrior
    
              Other ways include:
              Arrange Dice
              Mushrooms in Verse Realm - Silver Stream
              Mushrooms in Nautica Plains - Great Plains
              Mushrooms in Vejas Jungle - Entrance and Jungle
              
              Golden Elixer: Restores 200 SP
              Chests:
              Nautica Plains - Dig Site
              Vejas Ruins - Jade Temple
              Melc Ruins - Center
              Surmania Ruins - Heart Of Underground Maze 1F
    
              Enemies:
              Hyudra - Left
    
    Question: Where is the Expert Book?
    Answer:   Brady's Guide is wrong in stating that Hect starts with one. She
              starts with the Divine Book. To find the Expert book, you 1st need to
              kill the 2 Omega Breed bosses before Surmania ruins. Also make sure
              you destroy the nucleus. Once you've done so, walk back to the
              Northern Alps to where you originally found the Crystal Rose parked.
              The plane will be gone and the book will be lying on the floor in its
              place.
