+============================================================================+

Preliminary notes:
- If you are going for Item Collector, you will need to make sure you have 
gotten one of each buyable item in the shops before you change time periods.  
It's best if you just buy one of everything in each town you come to.  
However, you will not be able to complete Item Collector until your second 
playthrough, so if it's your first playthrough you might as well just play 
normally and see what you miss later.
- If you are trying for the "I Hate Gummies" title, do not use any gummies in 
battle until the second Barbatos fight.
- For the skits section, I didn't bother listing the skits that tell you 
you're going the wrong direction or entering a location you're not supposed 
to.
- In the Titles, I did not list titles that you automatically get.

-------

After the opening movie and some scenes, you'll be in a fight with an Owlbear 
(see below for stats).  You shouldn't have any trouble with this battle; just 
attack a few times and then back away to avoid the monster's attacks.

Once you get back to Cresta, go north a screen to the Orphanage.  After the 
scene, enter the main building, go to the second floor, and go into Rutee's 
room (there's a sign).  Exit to the veranda.  After the scene, go up to Kyle's 
room and choose the first choice to sleep.  After the scenes, go downstairs 
for a few more scenes, then exit the town.

--------------------------------------------------------


The Laguna Ruins are close to Cresta, in the forest to the southeast.  This is 
your first chance to fight if you want to learn the battle system a bit before 
going to the dungeon -- it's not really necessary, though.  If you're an 
experienced Tales player I recommend setting the difficulty to Second, because 
it will give you more Grade, which you need to unlock the higher difficulties.  
It also increases your chance of critical hits, gives you more XP from combos, 
and increases the chance of better slots on the weapons and armor the enemies 
drop.  You can rest in Kyle's room if you get hurt.

Like most Tales games, D2 has a monster collection book.  It works the same as 
usual; to get the Monster Collection title all you have to do is encounter 
each monster, but to fill out everything in the book you have to use 
Spectacles to scan each monster, and you also have to get all the dropped 
items and stolen items.  (Stealing in this game is done through Roni or Kyle's 
action enchants; you won't be able to do this yet).  You'll be back in this 
area later so it's not necessary to fill out everything now.  (You may want to 
have 6 Spectacles before going on so that you can scan all the monsters in 
Laguna and the next dungeon.)

If the enemies drop weapons or armor, check them for slots -- even though 
they're the same weapons and armor you start with, they may have beneficial 
slots on them.

When you're ready, head into the ruins.

             Drop: Meat (23%), Poleaxe (1%)

SKITS
After entering ruins - 3
After falling through the floor - 1
After searching the machine - 1
After going up the rope - 1
After defeating the Buel - 1
After the movie introducing Reala - 1

-------

First, go to the right and get the chest with Salted Meat.  Then proceed left
through the door and up to the save point.  Go left for a chest with a Life
Bottle.  Return to the save point and go right, then go down and climb up the
tree trunk for two chests (Lettuce and Bread).  Return down the tree trunk and 
up, and there is a partially hidden chest (with 2 Apple Gumis) near the door.  
Get it and then go through.  You will see a scene.  The glowing purple spot 
down where the priests are walking requires the Sorceror Scope to get; you 
will not be able to get the item until the end of the game.

Continue on to the left; there will be a scene where you open a treasure and
get an Apple Gumi, then fall down a pit.  Walk down and you'll see an 
explanation of the machine.  Each of the red boxes has a treasure in it; grab
hold of them with the circle button and push/pull them around until you get
them into the machine.  You will get an Apple Gumi, Milk, a Life Bottle, 
Yogurt, and a Mix Gumi.  Finally, put the blue box in the machine to get a
rope, and then hit the circle button somewhere on the upper wall to use the
rope.

In the next room, save your game, then walk down into the lower area by 
walking over the mound in the upper left.  Pull the block near the save point 
until it lines up to create a walkway (near the top of the screen).  Go across 
it and get two chests (Life Bottle and Merchant Sword).  Then go back into the 
lower point and move the walkway, then enter the door.  Walk up to the edge 
near the pit to see a scene, after which you will fight the first boss.

BOSS
--------------------------------------------------------
Buel         Weak: -         Strong: -
            Steal: -
             Drop: Gisarume, Heal Bangle
--------------------------------------------------------

Stay close to him to avoid the green spheres he shoots out -- after that, just 
guarding and attacking should kill him.  If you have problems, when Kyle gets 
to level 9 he learns his first spell; if you just sit at the back of the map 
and cast that over and over again (while Roni stands at the front) you should 
be able to defeat him.  Watch out for the earthquakes he makes when he gets to 
50% and 25% of his HP.

After defeating the boss, go to the next room and walk up to the tree.  After 
the scene, leave the room, and after some more scenes you will be 
automatically moved to the next area.

SKITS
After Judas joins - 2
After receiving the Sorceror Ring - 1
After opening the hidden door with the Ring - 2
After entering the dungeon - 5
After Judas leaves - 1

-------

After the scenes, Judas will join your party.  Open the chest in the room you 
start in for a Mix Gumi, then leave that room.  Go into the room right next to 
it and open the three treasure chests (one is slightly hidden on the left) for 
Milk, Kiwi, and Banana.  Go back to the room with the save point and try to 
walk up the stairs; you will get a scene after which you receive the Sorceror 
Ring.  Use it by hitting R -- aim at the red ball on the wall (where the arrow 
is pointing) and fire it, opening the door.

In the next screen you will get a few scenes.  In this dark area, you cannot
do anything (i.e. open chests or doors) unless you have lit a torch.  Use the 
sorceror ring on the place where the white arrow is pointing, and go back 
there whenever your light runs out.  First, go down and right to get the chest 
with 2 Apple Gumi.  Then go up and left from the torch to get a Life Bottle.  
Light the torch again and then go further down and right (you have to move 
quickly) to get a chest with Leather Boots.  Now light the torch one last time 
and quickly move down and to the left, then hit circle when you're in front of 
the bars.  They should break; then you can go through the opening to the next 
room.

In this next room, go right for a chest with an Apple.  Continue left to the 
next room.  You will see a chest at the top of the screen.  PAY ATTENTION here 
because this section is a FAQ on the boards.  The chest is a tool chest -- you 
have to pick the Stone Cutter from the list.  Start by choosing the last 
option to bring up a second page of items, then the second option.  NOTHING 
WILL BE ADDED TO YOUR INVENTORY.  THIS IS NORMAL.

After doing that, go down and around the path, press circle to break the bars, 
and go to the next room.  Climb the ladder, and open the chest by the save 
circle for a Steel Rapier.  Now shoot all three of the ropes with your 
Sorceror Ring to drop the barrels, then go back down the ladder.  Cross the 
drums and then go to the next room.  Hit circle on the statue near the 
entrance; now you can push it around.  IF THIS DOES NOT WORK, READ THE 
PREVIOUS PARAGRAPH -- YOU MUST HAVE THE STONE CUTTER FROM THE ITEM CHEST.  
Push the statue into the webs at the top left, and then after the short scene, 
shoot the statue with your sorceror ring.  Now you have to fight the next 
boss.

BOSS: 
--------------------------------------------------------
Vasago       Weak: Earth     Strong: -
            Steal: -
             Drop: Mental Bangle
--------------------------------------------------------

He's weak against Earth attacks, so one strategy is to control Judas and have 
him sit back casting Stone Zapper while the other two members of your party 
hold off the enemy at the front.  You can also just control Kyle and use 
basically the same strategy you used against the previous boss.  Watch for his 
spellcasting Spread; you can run backwards if you want to avoid his Aqua Press 
as well.

After defeating the boss, remove any of Judas' equipment you want for 
yourself, then go through the door.  Judas will leave your party and you will 
be outside.

+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

TITLES
- Watch screen chats (select) inside Cresta to get a title for Roni
- Talk to the swordsman by the entrance to town.  Pick the third choice, then 
the first choice, then the first choice again.  Now you can choose the "Easy" 
difficulty level, and everyone gets a title.

SKITS
After exiting to the world map - 6
Entering Cresta - 1
After waking the next morning - 1
After talking to Rutee - 1
After meeting up with Roni - 1
After leaving the Orphanage - 3
After leaving Cresta - 12
Go back into Cresta - 2
Stay at an Inn - 1

You have to walk all the way back to Cresta, and it's a long haul -- go across 
the bridge leading south and then walk all the way around the mountains, back 
over the bridge towards Cresta, and you're home.  Go inside the orphanage and 
talk to Rutee, then go up to your bed and sleep.  After some scenes, Rutee 
will give you some things (Scale Mail, World Map, Monster Book, 1000 gold).  
Leave the house and Roni rejoins your party.  Walk back into the town for some 
more scenes, and now it's off to Aigrette to meet Filia.  First, though, stop 
off in Darillshade now that you can actually enter the town.  Yes, it's 
another long walk.

-------

Walk to the right and see scenes; after this you can buy things from the man.  
Now go back to the left, and then you will jump down the cliff.  Walk to the 
right, and hit circle to jump the crevasse.  Go down, and jump over the next 
cliff (you have to wait until the wind stops); go down and get the chest with 
the Leather Mantle.  Now backtrack to the beginning of the map, climb down the 
vine, go left and down, and grab the chest with the Bread.  Continue down and 
get the Tomohawk (in the shaded chest).  Go back up and jump the cliff; you 
have to wait until the wind stops.  Pick up the pendant, then jump the cliff 
and continue to the save point.  Go right, and after the scenes, keep going 
right to the next screen.

Go all the way right (cross the water), jump the cliff, and grab the chest 
(Lettuce).  Go back across the cliff, climb the vine, and go down and to the 
right for a chest (Spectacles).  Cross the cliff (over the wind) to the left, 
grab the chest (Mix Gumi), then go back right and continue up.  Jump the cliff 
to the left, climb the vine, and get a chest (Meat).  Keep going up and the 
floor will collapse, sending you down.  Go right, and now you have to jump 
over the cliff when the wind is blowing.  Continue over the next cliff and 
climb to the next screen, then go left and get the chest (Tuna Gumi).  Leave 
the valley to the right.

Once outside, go along the coast to the southeast until you come to Aigrette.

After entering the Ruins - 2
After entering the main Temple grounds - 2
After getting Judas and Reala in your party - 6

-------

Use the sorceror ring to break any obstacles you come across.  Examining the 
devices gives you clues, but is not necessary.  Take the first passage left 
for a chest (Apple Gumi).  Go back and NE to the save circle.  Take the right 
passage for a chest (Dark Bottle).  Go back to the save circle, then up and to 
the left (for a Holy Bottle).  Go back to the main area and then around the 
stairs for a chest (Apple Gumi).  Go up the stairs, then walk to the back wall 
of the room and hammer quickly on R until the blue bar goes away and the wall 
breaks.  Pick up the three chests in the next room (30 Lens, Fabric Glove, 
Barbuta).

Go back down to the first floor, then through the passage behind the stairs.  
You have to walk across the tiles to spell DESTINY.  Get the chest (Trickster) 
to the right, and continue on.  Go up the stairs and exit, and you will be in 
the temple.  At this point, if you are very hurt, you may want to go back and 
rest in the town.  The next boss fight is difficult.

BOSS
--------------------------------------------------------
?????? (Barbatos)  Weak: Light     Strong: -
                  Steal: -
                   Drop: -
--------------------------------------------------------

Note that you get no Grade from this fight so you can set the difficulty to 
whatever you want.  Barbatos has 10,000 HP (on Normal) but when he gets to 50% 
HP the fight automatically ends.  However, this is not easy at any rate.  A 
few notes on the battle:
- Barbatos starts the fight by using Grand Vanish; it is possible to avoid 
this but it's not easy to do (some Youtube videos might help you out).
- If you use items, Barbatos will counter with Shadow Edge->Bloody Cross, or 
if the difficulty is on Mania or higher, Execution->Lunar Shade.  However, do 
note that because he starts off the fight casting Grand Vanish, you can 
immediately use a Spectacles without counter.
- When Barbatos gets to 75% HP, he will get a poison field around him that 
will put your characters in the Poison condition if they are within the field 
(this cannot be healed by a Panacea Bottle but goes away if you step out)
- If the difficulty is Hard or above, if you guard, Barbatos will counter with 
Burn Strike.
- If the difficulty is Mania or above, if you walk backwards, Barbatos will 
counter with Ceiling Fall.
- If the difficulty is Hard or above, Barbatos can cast Crazy Comet.
A good basic strategy is to set Roni's tactics to heal when you're at less 
than 75% HP and try to Press Guard and Spell Guard his attacks as well as you 
can.  But you can get trapped at the back of the map because of how quickly 
Barbatos can deal out damage, and using Gummies to recover TP or HP can be 
dangerous, especially if you are bunched up in one area.  If all else fails, 
set the difficulty to Easy and you should be able to beat him.

Once you beat him, you get some scenes and then appear out on a mountain road.  
Get the chest hidden behind the wall at the lower-left (Tuna Gumi), then head 
up, back into Straylize Temple.  Go into the building at the far left and 
speak to Filia.  She gives you the Combo Command item. Go all the way up the 
tower, cross over the stained glass hallway, and take the stairs down on the 
right.  You will be out in a garden.  Walk down the stairs at the bottom right 
and press A around the rope and you will get a Mix Gummy.  Now you can leave 
the temple and go south back into Aigrette.

NOTE: DO NOT play the waiter/waitress minigame in Aigrette now.  The items you 
get from it are worthless at this stage in the game, but the items you can get 
near the end of the game are very good.  You can only get one prize per 
character, though, so wait until the end of the game to do this.

Leave Aigrette and head east for Aigrette Harbor.  There's nothing to do in 
the town, so talk to the man in front of the ship and pay 400 yen for the 
ticket (if you don't have 400 gold, Judas will pay).  After the scene, exit 
the room and search to the left for the Thieves' Mantle.  Go up the right 
stairs and then enter the room to the right.  Search the hammock for a Rabbit 
Symbol.  Go up the stairs and talk to the Captain, then leave out the door 
behind him and climb up the ladder for a scene.  Exit out to the deck via the 
door near the save point room (up the left stairs).  When you move to the 
front of the ship you will fight a boss.

BOSS: Forneus Tail x3

Forneus Tail        Weak: Wind     Strong: Earth, Water, Fire

--------------------------------------------------------

The boss' wind weakness is very slight, so Wind Cutter may not work any better 
than Shadow Edge.  Even though the boss is strong against Earth, Air Pressure 
still works quite well.  If you keep a character at front attacking the 
bosses, they likely will not be able to get many spells off.

Now go up the stairs right of the save point, then down to the hold of the 
ship and fight Forneus himself.

When you regain control, leave Lilith's house and talk to many of the 
townspeople, then go back and talk to Lilith, and pick the first choice to 
rest.  After the scenes, leave the house and find Reala (she's in the field on 
the south side of town).  After the scene, go back to Lilith's house for more 
scenes, and you get the Collector's Book and some items.  Now you can leave 
the town and head south for Noischtat, but you have to go through the mist 
first, which is laid out as a dungeon.

You probably cannot get the Moon Selector yet if this is your first 
playthrough, since you need 600 GRADE to unlock Hard difficulty.  You can come 
back here (with some effort) for a little bit, but then you won't be able to 
get it until the end of the game.  You can't permanently miss it, though.

Head south from Leane, and soon the music will change and you'll get an 
automatic skit.  This misty section is a combination of world map and dungeon; 
it's a little confusing and there are a lot of pathways and treasure, but I'll 
try to lay it out as clearly as I can.

First, head down the path to the west and go all the way to the shore, and up 
(on the map it's a little peninsula) for a chest with a Treasure Dress.  Then 
go all the way back east until you hit the path again, and follow it down.  
The path will end but you'll see a little bit of it ahead to the south, and 
then a sign.

From the sign, head east and follow the land around until you hit another 
sign.  If you go north from this sign you will find a cave.  Head up in the 
cave and grab the Liquor Bottle from the chest.  Go further up and you'll be 
in a puzzle room with a box.  Just push the box straight in the hole and you 
can move on.  Follow the path around to exit the cave to the north.  Walk 
north and get the Mix Gummy and Rune Bottle from the chests, then backtrack 
all the way back through the cave to the south entrance.  From the sign to the 
north, go through the small opening in the cliff to the west, and then head 
south.  There will be a small scene where you notice a cave, which you want to 
go in.

In the cave, follow the path up and go to the left (past the path south).  Get 
the chest (Miso), then go back and take the path down.  In the puzzle room 
just push the two boxes so that they form a path over the holes.  Follow the 
path around until you get to a 4-way intersection with a sign.  First take the 
south path for a chest (Charm Bottle), then go north and follow the path 
around to an exit.  Walk north from the exit and get the chest (Lavender), 
then go back in the cave.  This time take the west passage and exit the cave 
to the south.

When you leave the cave, head for the yellow dot on your map -- go south and 
east, then over a bridge.  As you cross the bridge you will see a skit then 
automatically be taken to the shack.  When you regain control, search the top 
boxes for a Life Bottle and the bottom right boxes for a Holy Bottle.  Then 
leave the shack and re-enter it, and you will see a chest with the Fried 
Chicken recipe.  You can return here to rest for free.

Head north from the hut (don't cross the bridge) until you come to a cave.  
Follow the path around and go west at the T-junction.  Follow the path until 
you get to a chest (Mix Gummy), then go back to the T-junction and head south.  
In the puzzle room, just push the right block down one, the left block into 
the pit, and then push the right block to cover the 1-square path.  Head down 
from the puzzle room and go east at the T-junction.  Keep going east through a 
second T-junction and grab the two chests (All Divide, Holy Bottle), then go 
north at the fork you just passed.  Follow the path around and exit the cave.  
Get the chest to the east (Mix Gummy), then go back into the cave.  Head back 
to the T-junction south of the puzzle room, and go south this time, follow the 
path around, and exit the cave.  We're almost there!

Go south, then east between the mountains, and when you near the shore you 
should see a path going south by the shore.  Go past the sign and go east 
first.  Go all the way out to the peninsula and get the chest (Savory).  Go 
back to the sign and follow the path south this time.  When the path ends keep 
going south and east around the shore and you will finally see Noischtat.

Now it's off to the Oberon Mine.

After entering mine - 7

After getting the treasure - 1
After looking at the stone tablet - 4

-------

To get to the mine from Noischtat, head for the yellow spot -- go west from 
the sign near Noischtat.

First, go into the left room and get the three chests.  Then take the middle 
way from the first room and go up a few screens until you get to a save point.  
Go down the stairs from the save point and grab the chest, and look in the 
closet for an Orange Gummy.  Go up the stairs from the SP and there will be a 
scene in front of the Lens Engine.  You have to put 200 Lens in the engine for 
it to work.  Unless you did a whole lot of refining, you should have 100 Lens 
(the maximum) already, so press circle on the machine and answer yes (the 
first choice) to put them in.  Get the chest near the machine, and go up the 
stairs to the right of the machine.  Grab the chest, and look in the closet 
for an Apple Gummy.  Now go back down to the save point, and head NE.

Search the glowing parts of the containers in front of you for some Lens, then 
head down the stairs on the right and check the glowing part of the box for 
more Lens.  While you are down here, press the circle button on the raft 
floating in the water and pick the first choice to make it sail down the 
river.  Then walk up the ramp at the top of the screen, and there are three 
more Lens areas to get.  If you get a message when you search one it means 
that you can't carry all the Lenses; just pick the first option to get to 100 
Lens.  If you had 100 Lens at the beginning you should have 100 now, if not, 
there are more available soon.  (If you have 100, go back and activate the 
machine, then come back for the next part so that you can refill your Lenses.)

On the screen right from the save point, take the exit that's not up the ramp.  
Find the lenses in this room (glowing spots again).  Also pick up the chest at 
the SE for a Vambrace, and a chest at the NE for the Troll Mail.  At this 
point you should have enough lenses to activate the machine if you haven't 
already.

Once the Engine is activated, go all the way back to the first room and take 
the stairs up.  You'll see a panel with a white arrow pointing at it; go there 
and hit circle to activate the machine.  If both levers are in the ON position 
(you can check by the machine), a bomb will come out and fall down the hole.  
If this doesn't happen, check the levers and try again.  Now go back down the 
stairs and the bomb will be on the raft (if the raft is not there, read the 
third paragraph).  Go press circle on the raft and pick the first choice to 
move the bomb off the raft, then pull it around until it automatically goes up 
on the rubble pile.  Shoot it with the Sorceror Ring to blow it up and remove 
the rubble.

Now go back upstairs and send another bomb down the hole.  Go back downstairs 
and press circle on the boat, and pick the second choice to send the boat down 
the river again.  Go all the way back down past the save point to the place 
where you initially found the boat, and it will be there with the bomb.  Press 
circle and pick the first option to get the bomb, then pull it up the ramp and 
to the SE of the screen near the entrance, to where the wall is crumbled.  
Push it near the wall until you get a message, then shoot it to blow it up.  
Go in the room and get the two chests (Flamberge, Feat Symbol).  Go back, send 
the boat back down the river, and go back to the first room again.  

Go up the stairs on the right (that the rubble was blocking) and press circle 
on the machine to move the wooden platform.  Go back to the other side and 
make a bomb come out, then come back and move the wooden platform again.  Move 
the bomb over to the crack in the wall and blow it up.  Go through the hole 
and move forward.  After the scene, continue on in the cave and there will be 
another scene.  Then you can leave the cave and head back to Noischtat.

-------

Once back in town, go near the Merchant's house and you'll see a scene inside 
the house.  Go in and talk to the Merchant, get your 3000 gold, and leave. 

At this point you should try to take on the initial stages of the Arena before 
you move on, since the reward items are quite good.  Unless you've been using 
Holy Bottles or running from battles a lot, you should be able to handle them.  
A few tips:
- For the Single male fights, choose Kyle.  When you face the second and third 
fights with the spellcasters, target them and then use Bakuenken.  Even if you 
hit a different monster, the flame will come out under the one you're 
targetting and cancel their spellcasting.
- For the Single female fight (Reala), use Burn Strike and Flame Drive in the 
first fight, Splash and Aqua Spike in the second fight, and Burn Strike in the 
third.  If the monsters get too close to you, you can use melee to push them 
back a bit.
- For the tag battle, use Reala and a fighting character, and just have Reala 
cast her best area spell (Burn Strike or Splash), and Heal you if you get 
hurt.

It's very unlikely you can beat any of the other ranks without ridiculous 
amounts of grinding, but if anyone has strategies for beating them at this 
point, let me know.

In any case, once you've done that (or not, if you don't feel like it), head 
to the harbor and talk to the captain.  Choose the first choice to board the 
ship.  When you get control of Kyle again, head out to the deck via the exit 
that's near the save point, and start to walk up the stairs.  Continue to walk 
up and see the scene, after which Judas runs away.  Go back down into the ship 
and take the stairs up right from the save point room, and exit out to the 
ship.  Talk to Judas.  After the scenes, you will be at the Snowfreer harbor.

There's nothing that you're required to do in this town, so just leave and 
head out for Heidelberg after buying anything you need.  Note that you can buy 
a Broad Sword in the next town for 3200, so you shouldn't pay the 4000 for it 
here.

NOTE: Once you enter Heidelberg, you will be unable to leave, and you won't be 
back to this time period until the end of the game.  If you need to do 
anything (i.e. fight in the Arena, get the Moon Selector), do it now.  Don't 
worry about the equipment in Heidelberg's shops; except for the Hide Mantle, 
it will all be available in the next town.

to set the "Item Steal" enchant (the last choice in the Armed Enchantment set) 
on Roni or Kyle's techs.

SKITS
After entering the castle (post-attack) - 1
After a fight in the castle - 1

-------

You can pay 100 gold to the man for HP/TP restore, and buy things from the 
other man. 

Enter the castle, and there will be an automatic fight.  After that, head up 
the stairs and cross the ladder over the gap for another forced fight.  Go 
left  to a hallway.  After another forced fight, go to the end of the hall, 
and heal up in preperation for a boss fight (if you're playing the PSP 
version, save your game).

BOSS
--------------------------------------------------------
Ose             Weak: -                Strong: Everything
               Steal: -
                Drop: -
--------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------
Sabnock         Weak: Earth, Water     Strong: -
               Steal: 
                Drop: Wind Shear (100%), Talisman (99%)
--------------------------------------------------------

Ose (the panther thing) will almost always stay behind Sabnock, so there's 
almost no way to beat him before you beat Sabnock (he runs away after Sabnock 
goes down), especially since he has a ridiculous 700 defense.  He will cast 
Aqua Spike, which you can avoid by running backwards, and Stone Zapper.

Sabnock has very high defense (400) and is hard to stagger, but is fairly weak 
against magic.  Using good magic like Burn Strike to initiate combos with your 
fighters is a good strategy.  As you reduce his HP he becomes capable of 
harder and harder hits, and when he gets below 25% he will start casting 
Negative Gate, and on Hard difficulty or higher he can chain Negative Gate 
from his attacks.  

Keep him as far to the right of the battlefield as you can; this is especially 
important when he's in Spirits Blaster.  If you let him bunch up your guys on 
the left side of the screen he can quickly take everyone out.

After the fight, there will be a scene, and you'll find yourself out on the 
field near Aigrette.

--------------------------------------------------------

SKITS
After entering Heat River - 1
After seeing that the bridge is down - 3
After fighting the boss - 2

-------

Go up in the first screen to see that the bridge is submerged.  Head up, then 
up again.  Note that if you hit the spouts of water you take damage.  On this 
screen, go up and around to the left side, grab the chest on the way 
(Hellfire), and go south, then go left and up.

On this screen, you have to be behind the rock pillars when the wave of fire 
comes across the screen or you take damage.  Wait behind the first pillar 
until the wave comes, then run to the right and get the Mix Gummy in the 
chest, then run back to the pillar.  Wait for another wave, then run north to 
the next pillar.  After the next wave, take the left path, grab the Dark 
Bottle on the way up, then hide behind the pillar.  Run to the left and up to 
get the Apple Gummy, then run back to the pillar, wait for another wave, and 
head up the slope to the next pillar.  Wait for another wave, and run up to 
the next pillar.  And once again, wait for another wave and run up to the next 
pillar.

After the next wave, take the down sloping path (south) and grab the Cotton 
Kilt, then run back.  Now take the left path and fall down the hole you see.  
Get the three chests and save, then climb the rope back up (press circle on 
the rope; you might have to walk around a little bit to find the right spot).

Now head up, skip the slope, and get the chest.  Go back down, up the slope, 
and then down for an Orange Gummy, then go to the top of the screen and save 
your game.

BOSS
--------------------------------------------------------
Vepaul          Weak: -      Strong: Fire, Wind, Earth (slight)
               Steal: -
                Drop: Black Onyx (100%), Keserasera (100%)
--------------------------------------------------------

It's hard to get a combo started because of the bubbles that come out.  You 
can press guard the bubbles, and spell guard his flame strike -- a good 
strategy is to have Nanaly use Splash and then attack with Kyle when the boss 
is staggered; leaving Reala to heal.  He tends to cast Volcanic Ray if you 
move away from him; if you can, run away from it, but likely he will cast it 
on Reala and she'll take damage.

Once you beat the boss, head down through the long area with the pillars 
(getting any treasures you missed).  Note that you still have to deal with the 
heat waves.  When you get back to the next screen, notice that the water is 
gone and you can go down the slope to the south.  Once you get into the lower  
part, first go north and get the two chests.  Then go south two screens, under 
the bridge, and get the chest.  Then go back up, head up the slope, and make 
your way back around to the initial screen with the bridge, which you can now 
cross, and exit out to the field.

SKITS
After entering - 4

-------

The boxes on the ground in this place are like the ones in the Laguna Ruins; 
you push them into the machine and get the items.  However, note that if the 
boxes contact the poison gas, the items inside will change to what is in 
parentheses (usually a worse item).  If this happens, you can leave and re-
enter the screen to try again.  Make especially sure that you get the two 
Berseliums.

Anyway, on the first screen there are three boxes you can get; go down and 
there are three more boxes.  You can get the box (Flare Mantle) inside the 
glass sphere by walking through the stone rubble.  Get those and head down the 
stairs.  Go left and save your game.  In this room you have to pull the stone 
pieces aside so that you can go through, while avoiding the gas.  There's a 
chest hidden among the stones, get that.  Go up the stairs to the right first 
and get the chest, then go back and take the lower-left exit.  Grab the chest, 
then continue on.  

In this room, take the upper-right exit.  This room has two sets of stairs; go 
up the left one first to get a chest, then come back down and take the right 
one.  There are two chests here; grab them and then go up the stairs out to 
the surface again.  On this screen there's a yellow box, go press circle on it 
to kick it below.  Go up to the next screen, and kick the yellow box down 
here.  Now guess what -- yeah, you have to backtrack all the way back to the 
beginning to get the contents of the boxes (it's well worth it, though).

When you finish that, come back and go in the door.  In this room, there are 
three colored plates that have numerical values -- the red is 1, the green is 
3, and the blue is 5.  Each door has a number on it, and you have to light up 
the plates to make the total value equal to the number on the door.  Once you 
open up a door, it will stay open even if you change the lit plates.

First, step on both plates and then go in the right door.  Get the Fish Pot 
recipe.  Step on the blue plate so that they're all lit, then go into the next 
door.  Light only the green plate for the SE door and the chest, then light 
only the red plate for the NW chest.  Light only the blue plate to move on to 
the NE.  Green + blue gets you to the NW for the chest, then unlight all the 
plates to get the final chest and go through the exit.

Before going to Kalviola Holy Place, there are some treasure chests you can 
get on the world map -- you will not be able to return to this time period 
again so this your only chance (although there's nothing unique in them).

Once you're ready, go in the building.  After the scene, head up the stairs to 
the save spot.  Go down either staircase, it doesn't matter.  Grab the two 
chests, then examine the center globe.  Shoot it with the sorceror ring, and 
fight the monks that come down.  Then go up through the door.  After the 
scene, you will be back in Heidelberg.

+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

You can play this game by talking to the boy and girl in the center square of 
Noischtat.  The game is not all that hard; you have a blue stamina bar that 
goes down when you run, and goes down more if you hold down circle to run 
faster.  When it runs out, you can only walk.  The course has 5 laps.  Play 
the course a few times to get the hang of the path, and then I have this 
advice:
- Make sure at the beginning you don't lose time by running into the people.
- Don't make any mistakes with the path.
- Once you have a clear path, hold down the circle button and run for at least 
a lap or a lap and a half, then just run normally until you see someone 
closing in on you, then hold down circle again for 1/2 or 1 lap.  You'll run 
out of stamina before the end, but you should have enough of a lead that you 
can win even walking.

The only prize for doing this is a title; you have to do it once with each 
character to get their title.  There is no difference in speed or control 
depending on which character you use.

| S2. TALES QUIZZES                                                          |
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

In Nanaly's house (10 years in the future, in Hopetown), you can pick up a 
quiz book.  You can later add additional quizzes to it by finding other books 
throughout the game.  If you complete the initial quiz with 10 right answers 
you get a title for Kyle, and if you complete all the quizzes with 10 right 
answers you get another title.

Unfortunately, the quiz is impossible if you don't know Japanese well.  The 
questions are randomly selected from a rather large question bank, and you 
only have 10 seconds to read the question, read the answers, and select the 
right one.

If you can read Japanese, the quiz is still extremely difficult.  Even if you 
have a list of all the questions and correct answers, you barely have enough 
time to consult it.  Accordingly, I'm not going to bother listing questions 
and answers here -- the best way to pass the quiz is just to keep playing it 
over and over again until you learn the answers and get lucky with 10 
questions you know.

Note that to get the second title, you have to complete all the quizzes on a 
single playthrough.  Since you can't get the second Destiny 2 quiz book until 
your second playthrough, you don't have to bother with the other quizzes your 
first time through.
