    Introduction							<IN01>
    ======================================================================
    This FAQ is based on the Japanese Version of Wild Arms the Vth 
    Vanguard, which is released on 14th of December 2006. When I was 
    writing this FAQ, the release date for the NA version has yet to 
    be announced, but once it is released, I will update this FAQ to suit 
    the NA release as well.
    
    Note that this is the first time I wrote an FAQ, so don't expect 
    any fancy stuff.
    
    This FAQ does not contain any Japanese characters.
    
    This FAQ MIGHT contain spoilers, so use it at your own risk.

    Badges in WA5							<BA01>
    ======================================================================
    What are badges? Well to put it simple, badges have the same effect 
    as equipping accessory in the other RPGs. Now, letfs get into the 
    basic of badges in WA5
    1. The badges are divided into 5 ranks, which is Rank S, A, B, C and D.
    
    2. There is a total of 70 badges, which is 1 Rank S, 6 Rank A, 24 Rank 
       B, 29 Rank C and 10 Rank D badges. 
    
    3. To obtain badges, you can 
    -	buy them
    -	synthesis them
    -	steal from enemies
    -	obtain them for treasure boxes
    -	do sub quests.
    
    4. In Wild Arms V, the maximum number of badges a character can equip 
       is 5.
    
    5. In default, without equipping any medium, each character have a 
       badge slot. By equipping medium, each character gain their second 
       badge slot at level 10, and the third one at level 20, fourth one 
       at level 40, and the fifth one at level 80.
    
    6. Badges aren't that useful if used alone. However, by combining it
       with several other badges or passive skills, it will prove to be
       extremely powerful.

    The shop list below only includes badges, and is based on my save 
    game, which is after gaining access to Remodeling Experiment Tower
    Sector O. Thus, whether there are changes in the shop list, I'm not 
    quite sure. As for the names of the shops, there might be translation
    errors, so if you do know the real/appropriate name for them, feel 
    free to send an email to me, and of course, I will give you full

    Black Market							<BA04>
    ======================================================================
    Yup, black market is back again, in WA5. But, then again, to gain
    access to black market, you need the black pass. As for how to get it,
    please kindly refer to the full walkthroughs out there.
    Just like in WA4, to purchase stuffs from black market, the currency 
    used is not Gella, but Level. For example, if you were to purchase 
    pocketbook, which costs -20 levels, you have to deduct 20 levels in
    total from your 6 characters' levels.
    Note that the max level you can deduct from each character is 99 
    levels, provided he/she is level 100, and after deducted, level 1.
    
    To fully utilize the black market, there is always an easy EXP trick.
    
    Credit goes to http://kos.sakura.ne.jp/wa5/
    First, purchase as much silver sun and priest badge as you can 
    afford in Honeysday. Then, go to Missesmia, create Laurel Crowns
    with badge synthesis. Sell all the Laurel Crowns you have created.
    Repeat until you have the max gella allowed. 
    
    Equip the strongest in-battle character with a pocketbook, and 
    fight the Gella Eater Monster in TARTARUS. Let it eat your money,
    use a lucky card, and kill it with the character equipped with 
    pocketbook. You should be able to gain about 2 mil exp for one kill.
    
    Below is the list of badges, sold in the black market.

    ======================================================================
    Badges Recommedations						<BA06>
    ======================================================================
    To have the best badges combinations, you need to look at each
    character's personal skills, which is:
    Dean 	- 2X damage when critical
    Rebecca - Repetitive attacks from 2 - 5 times (Same effect as 
    	  violator, but at a way lower rate)
    Avril	- DP damage is increased when attack/shoot command is used
    Greg	- Auto Guard after every turn
    Carol	- Attack from anywhere to anywhere (not distance limited). 
    	  The Damage dealt varies.
    Chuck	- Attack/Shoot deals more damage when Chuck's HP is lower.
    
    Then, you have to look at what medium the character is equipping. As
    for what stats each medium increased, I assume you already know it.
    
    Note that the below are only RECOMMENDATIONS made by me, for normal
    and boss battles, before you even acquire All Over. I will list down
    each  and every characters, along with their recommended mediums and 
    badges. Furthermore, I am making an assumption that all characters are 
    at least at level 80, with all 5 badges slot unlocked.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dean
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Medium of Luck/Moon
    Sheriff Star
    Force Carrot
    Violator
    Cat Hand
    
    Mainly because with either of the mediums, Dean will ALMOST always be 
    the first one to move in any battle, thus with force carrot, you will 
    have a full Force bar for your disposal at the very beginning of the 
    battle. The last slot is solely for you own disposal. Some people 
    might advise using Mist Cloak, while I like to use Berserker or Gun 
    Star Sign.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Rebecca
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Medium of Sword
    Sheriff Star
    Violator     
    Cat Hand
    Berserker  
    
    As mentioned above, Rebecca's personal skill will have the same effect
    as Violator, but at a lower rate. With Violator equipped, she can deal
    more than 5 times of damage, provided she has enough bullet with her.
    Since Rebecca's attack range type is a straight line, long range type,
    she will most probably behind your tanker. Thus, by equipping berserker
    she can deal more damage, by abusing her multiple shot technique.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Avril
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Medium of Sword
    Sheriff Star 
    Violator 
    Cat Hand
    
    As for Avril, since her personal skill is increase DP damage, I highly 
    recommend equipping stuffs, that increase DP, for this case, Sheriff 
    Star.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Greg
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Medium of Moon/Sky/Ocean
    Sheriff Star 
    Dual Cast
    Mist Cloak  
    
    As mentioned above, Greg auto guards after every turn, thus, reducing
    any damage dealt on him. With Mist Cloak half of the physical attacks 
    will miss him, making him one of the best tanker in the game.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Carol
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Medium of Sky/Ocean
    Sheriff Star
    Teres Tiara
    Dual Cast
    
    I don't have much to say about Carol. I mainly use her as a healer, 
    and attack only to charge up the Force bar. However, with her "you can
    run, but you can't hide" attack range, increasing her DP is a wise 
    choice.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Chuck
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Medium of Sword/Mountain
    Sheriff Star
    Berserker
    Cat hand
    Violator
    Dual Cast/Comet Mark
    
    Another mad attacker. In Chuck's case, what you would like to see is
    him, getting into critical status, i.e. HP is red. If Chuck is at full 
    hp, Dual cast should help dealing damage. You could also replace Cat
    hand or Dual Cast with Comet Mark.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ragu o Ragula
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    If Wild ARMs Vth is your first WA game, then you might not know that 
    Ragu o Ragula is the hardest optional boss in the series. So the 
    badges recommendation will be a little different.
    
    To make things simple, I will recommend two ways, to defeat Ragu o
    Ragula. 
    
    ----------------
    Orange 100 Trick
    ----------------
    I recommend using Carol, Avril and Dean for this trick with at least
    level 80, which is the level that you unlock your 5th badge slot.
    Equip Carol with the medium of sea, while Avril and Dean with the 
    medium of sword. You could switch medium of sword with medium of sky,
    but it will take longer. Why? Continue reading.
    
    For Carol, equip the school uniform costume, and any bullet that
    increase eva and agi. For badges, she will equip
    Orange 100
    Violator
    Sheriff Star
    Teres Tiara or Mist Cloak
    Another Sheriff Star
    
    For Dean and Avril, let them equip
    Dual Cast
    Teres Tiara
    Berserker
    Sheriff Star X2
    
    With these badges, Ragu's killer move, the 1 million and -1 million
    celcius attacks won't kill your party instantly. The main reason of 
    equipping sheriff stars is to increase the stats, mainly AGI, ATK 
    and
    DP. Medium of Sword is the choice here, since it has the 2 turn 
    force  skill, and the more turns your party have, before the enemy 
    moves (in other words, the higher your chain), the higher the damage 
    you dealt on the enemy. 
    The healer, Carol in this case, shouldn't heal any of the party 
    members but, will only revive them if they got killed. She should 
    act as the tanker of the party, and use normal attack when 
    no one is dead.
    
    ----------------
    Violator Trick
    ----------------
    For this trick, you should use Avril and Rebecca. The third one is 
    your own choice.
    Equip Avril and Rebecca with medium of sword and the following badges
    Violator
    Cat hand
    Sheriff Star X 3 or Sheriff Star X2 and Mist Cloak
    For bullets, give them to one with most ammo.
    
    For this method, it is HIGHLY recommended that you ABUSE black market
    for its stat apples, mainly the AGI, EVA and STR apples.
    Get all of them to 999 (except AGI, which is 998), then enter the 
    battle.
    Keep nuking Ragu with the skill, and wait till it cast the killer
    move. Then keep on using attack command. With Avril's personal skill
    DP damage up, Violator and the multiple Sheriff star, while Rebecca's 
    personal skill which works almost the same as violator, Ragu will 
    not get to cast its killer move on you, while your chain increase,
    the damage per shot increase, which is kinda sweet. With the third
    character using the same badges, defeating it is as easy as any
    random encounter in the game (provided that you have high AGI and
    EVA)
    No doubt, this trick is much more time consuming compared to the
    Orange 100 trick, but it is kinda fun looking at your chains, and Ragu 
    not having any chance to move after casting.
