Ys Seven
A Walkthrough
by Sethan

#-# 1. Introduction #---------------------------------------------------------#


  Welcome to my Ys Seven FAQ/Walkthrough. I hope in this document I can serve
as an adequate guide to your journey through the game without spoiling
everything or holding your hand too much. Understand this; the Ys series of
games are best played in your own style, and you will need time to get
comfortable with each game in turn. I cannot tell you how to play the game,
but I can advise you on how I played or make observations on how bosses
behaved for me. 

  The Ys series is highly thought of overseas in Japan, but in foreign markets
it is so much a niche title. I will tell you now, this is not Final Fantasy,
or Dragon Quest, or any other franchise with "RPG" in the name. Ys games have
a very distinct feel to them, remaining undeniably "old school" in how they
develop story and gameplay. The art design and music both are amazingly done,
adding to the allure of this series to me. Go on YouTube for a couple hours
and flip through the various tracks of Ys music out there, then tell me it
can't measure up against some of the more popular games in the "RPG" genre.
Nevertheless, Ys is now being marketed rather aggressively for the PSP system
with XSEED's localizations. I highly recommend finding a copy of Ark of
Napishtim, if you have a PlayStation 2 collecting dust, or if you have a Wii
the Virtual Console release of "Ys Book I & II" on TurboCD is worthwhile for
an introduction into the games. Be warned, that game is a very different
animal from what you are used to; but that is not Ys Seven, so I'll let you
look up that game if-or-when you decide to try it out.

  Despite me using "RPG" to describe this game, this game is not like
traditional RPGs. It is a hybrid action/adventure game similar in
development to a Zelda game, but with RPG elements to manage such as level,
statistics, and equipment. If you liken it to Kingdom Hearts, you're also
half-right and half-wrong. Up until Ys Seven, Adol would always be fighting
alone; Kingdom Hearts used two allies almost as part of the game's design. Ys
Seven might compare to it, but I'll be honest: this game is harder due to many
handicaps put on you with the item system. There is no guzzling potions down
if a battle is going badly until you win via persistence. Ys allows you a
limited amount of each recovery item, and you can never carry more than your
allotment. In Nightmare, you will be only allowed one of each type of item,
and enemies will be much stronger than in Normal (where you are permitted
up to five of the basic items). Not only that, but you are expected to get hit
a lot less; boss enemies will often have over a hundred times your HP value in
health to fight through, and you cannot keep pace with them using recovery
items.

  My best advice is to listen to the game's tutorial notes. You will not get
nearly as many as other games in the genre, and the help is very useful to get
your hands broken in. My second best advice is to talk to everyone, despite
how repetetive they may wind up sounding; they will give you information and
advice on matters. Last of the general advice is very simple: keep notes on
where you can find things, so when you backtrack you can find them easier. You
will be doing backtracking, and you will need to walk large distances from
time to time to go from point A to point B.

  Without further ado, let's review the cast of intrepid adventurers you will
be playing with for most of the game.


#-# 2. Characters #-----------------------------------------------------------#


Adol Christin
  Attack Type: Slash (Or Pierce/Strike, depending on equipment.)
  Extra Skill: Lunar Blade
  Support Ability: Accuracy multiplier.

  Adol Christin is the main character around which the Ys saga revolves. This
red-haired warrior is legendary as an adventurer and he overcomes all sorts of
evil beings in his travels. He is also known for his lack of good luck
concerning boats, and the tendency for him to be a "chosen one". At the
halfway point in the story, roughly two-thirds of the way through the game,
he will get access to different types of swords which can alter his attack
type. Take advantage of this, because you can't leave Adol out of the party. 

Adol's Skills
  Rising Slash      (SP  10)
  Strength Blast    (SP  10)
  Running Slash     (SP  10)
  Photon Blade      (SP  10)
  Scud Sword        (SP  10)
  Earth Shaker      (SP  20)
  Power Smash       (SP  20)
  Sword Dance       (SP  40)
  Dominator         (SP  40)
  Pentagram         (SP  80)
  Aerial Thrust     (SP  20)
  Rapid Snipe       (SP  40)
  Tornado Slash     (SP  20)

Dogi
  Attack Type: Strike
  Extra Skill: Power Strike
  Support Ability: Stun rate multiplier.

  Dogi "the Wall Crusher" is a large and muscular man whose self-chosen
nickname is a telling indication of just how strong he is. He is a loyal
friend to Adol, having been with him since the start of his adventures
within Darm Tower. Dogi specializes with fist weapons, and the extreme
short range can get him in some trouble during boss battles. Nevertheless,
his skills can make him deadly when used properly.

Dogi's Skills
  Combination       (SP  12)
  Crusher           (SP  12)
  Might Quake       (SP  12)
  Straight Right    (SP  25)
  Uppercut          (SP  25)
  Blaster Kick      (SP  50)
  Kaiser Rush       (SP  50)
  Grand Slam        (SP 100)
  Wild Rage         (SP  50)
  Roundhouse Kick   (SP  25)
  Aura Impact       (SP  12)

Aisha
  Attack Type: Pierce
  Extra Skill: Arrow Rain
  Support Ability: Extra Skill gauge speed multiplier.

  Aisha is an Altaginian girl who pushes her way into the party at a point,
and proves to be very good with her bow and arrows. For the most part she
acts haughty and entitled but there is a good heart which lies under the
behavior. Aisha's bow is an exceptional ranged weapon, and plenty of her
skills are useful for controlling the battlefield. Her support ability is
useful as well, since the Extra Skills of your party are central to killing
bosses fast. 

Aisha's Skills
  Somersault        (SP   9)
  Tumble Arrow      (SP   9)
  Spread Shot       (SP   9)
  Killer Hornet     (SP  18)
  Hydro Shot        (SP  18)
  Waspinator        (SP  35)
  Aqua Burst        (SP  35)
  Jet Slicer        (SP  35)
  Cataract Blue     (SP  70)
  Heavy Blast       (SP   9)
  Rising Arrow      (SP  18)
  Skywinder         (SP  18)
  Step Shot         (SP   9)


Elk
  Attack Type: Slash
  Extra Skill: Earth Guard
  Support Ability: Gold drop multiplier.

  Elk is a young boy from Shannoa Village who treats live as an adventure to
be lived. Naturally, he and Adol get along rather well when they get a chance
to know each other; until then it's a good idea to take him with a pinch of
salt. Elk is built like a much quicker and more fragile Adol, since his armor
is of the lightest type. The dual-sword he wields can be thrown during some
skills for an extra edge. His skills "Steal" and "Bandit" later on can be very
useful in getting materials for you to work with.

Elk's Skills
  Rock Fang         (SP   8)
  Crestfall         (SP   8)
  Wheelspin         (SP   8)
  Sliding           (SP   8)
  Steal             (SP   8)
  Spin Edge         (SP  15)
  Bandit            (SP  15)
  Terran Vortex     (SP  60)
  Leaf Boomerang    (SP  30)
  Rising Wheel      (SP  15)
  Rumble Brawl      (SP  30)
  Aerial Charge     (SP  15)

Mustafa
  Attack Type: Strike
  Extra Skill: Flame Hazard
  Support Ability: Damage dealt multiplier.

  Mustafa is the elder of Segram after his father left to assist in the war
against Romn. This leaving is central to Mustafa's image of his father, and
has left the young man slightly bitter. Mustafa uses heavy armor and a massive
hammer to fight, and is very capable when fighting enemies. His support
ability makes him a useful ally, and his skills can almost all hit a wide area
with Strike-type damage.

Mustafa's Skills / Cruxie's Skills
  Hammer Stamp      (SP  11)
  Igniz Blaze       (SP  11)
  Full Swing        (SP  11)
  Provoke           (SP  11)
  Revolver Swing    (SP  22)
  Crimson Pillar    (SP  22)
  Spark Pound       (SP  45)
  Dragon Blaze      (SP  90)
  Meteor Smash      (SP  45)
  Burst Swing       (SP  45)
  Empower           (SP  11)
  Dash Geyser       (SP  22)
  Volcano           (SP  22)

Mishera
  Attack Type: Pierce
  Extra Skill: Turbulence
  Support Ability: Damage received reduction.

  Mishera the blind seer is Eldress of Kylos, and she sees more than
most people do with perfect eyes. Her mystic abilities are to be respected,
and she can perform many powerful manipulations with wind. Almost all of her
skills use wind, but all of them help support the concept of Mishera as a
ranged attacker. In a pinch, she can unleash several skills which will damage
those around her. While you might have worked Aisha up to be preferable,
Mishera's support ability is very useful when making your way through the
wild or dungeons.

Mishera's Skills
  Wind Cutter       (SP  12)
  Mist Wind         (SP  12)
  Absorption        (SP  12)
  Ascension         (SP  12)
  Rejection         (SP  25)
  Purge Wind        (SP  25)
  Tornado           (SP  50)
  Aerial Orb        (SP 100)
  Calm Gust         (SP  12)
  Aerial Thrust     (SP  50)
  Cloudburst        (SP  25)
  Atomos Cutter     (SP  50)
  Storm Gust        (SP  25)

Geis
  Attack Type: Slash
  Extra Skill: Fairy Strike
  Support Ability: Experience gain multiplier.

  The last member of your party to be introduced, Geis is a mercenary with a
dark and troubled past who has a cynical sense of humor. He is accompanied by
three faeries who act as eyes, ears, and messengers as need be. He has met
 Adol before, and followed his career with interest; primarily he doesn't think
much of Adol's "goody two-shoes" nature and the tendency to attract trouble
wherever he goes. Geis uses a polearm to attack with and his skills are
powerful enough to back up Adol rather well in the party. Due to his support
ability, you may be seeing a lot of Geis in your active party; get used to him.

Geis's Skills
  Reaper            (SP  10)
  Wind Slash        (SP  10)
  Helm Splitter     (SP  10)
  Fly Fish          (SP  10)
  Flashlance        (SP  20)
  Wolf Fang         (SP  20)
  Cross Slasher     (SP  20)
  Cross Crusher     (SP  80)
  Trapster          (SP  10)
  Flashlance        (SP  20)
  Spiral Slash      (SP  40)
  Dragon Fang       (SP  40)
  Axe Arts: Ravage  (SP  40)


#-# 3. Walkthrough #----------------------------------------------------------#


### Prologue: Arrival in Altago City ##########################################

  You find Adol and Dogi aboard a ship in the ocean, cruising quietly to the
nation of Altago. A recent ceasefire agreement between Altago and Romn has made
it possible to travel between the two world powers, and being adventurers it
was only natural for Adol and Dogi to travel to new and interesting places.
With the favorable reference from their friend Ladoc, they got passage on a
trading vessel; after that they're on their own.

  Arriving in the city, they are warned about wandering aimlessly. Once you
have control, you can wander around and talk to people. Most of them will fill
you in on the plot details, or direct you to important places. Make a habit out
of talking to everyone you meet often, and after events happen; their
information will change often and sometimes  you will be given advice on where
to go next.

  Heading out of the docks, the party will be stopped by a young and mute
flower girl. You should buy a flower for 5 gold, and you will get a [Komona
Flower] and a [Nadly Flower] as a gift for Adol to wear in his hair. You can
visit the buildings nearby, and get to know where the weapon and item shops are
located before finding the Tavern. You can't leave the city due to an edict, so
you have nowhere to travel to yet. In the public square, you can meet another
flower girl who has a cart with her. She doesn't introduce herself, but seems
to know the one who sold Adol his flowers. 

  After seeing the sights and wandering back towards the palace, a scene begins
where one of the Dragon Knight Commanders is harassing the flower girl. Adol
and Dogi will intervene, and Commander Raud will insist on arresting them for
spoiling his fun. You will lose your starting equipment, before the duo is
released from the prison by Commander Scias by royal order. King Kiemarl has
heard from his old friend Ladoc about Adol and his adventures, so he wants to
ask a favor of Adol the Red. He wants you to check out a recently opened cavern
and report back. You'll be provided with weapons again, and given a tutorial
on how to fight with them. 

  While returning to the shops and checking out their goods, you can start the
following quests: "Lecture: Tribes of Altago", "Lecture: Titano Ecology".
Michael Wootton in the Tavern wants you to recover materials native to the
tribal regions, or titano parts if possible. Keep your eyes peeled, because
the second request is not as easy as the first one. 

  Out on the plains you can find a few things to draw your interest. First, a
stone monument which will recover all your party members' health when you
touch it. These symbolize good places to save your game, since you're not
outright limited on when you can save except being unable to during boss
battles. Secondly, you have the roaming monsters in the area; these are
important to keep track of. Most areas separated by maps will have three
different monsters at most. Lastly, you will find material gathering spots
around each area. They are easily spotted, and hold a variable amount of
materials inside. Sometimes you can get a rare material, which will be marked
as such; a few gathering points seem weighted to permit more of those than
others, so always check them out.

  Altago Plains Northeast holds two treasures you don't want to miss, one near
the eastern edge of the area, and the other behind the spring on the north
edge of the area. The chests each contain an [Iko Extract] which is a useful
healing item at this point. Avoid going further west for now, as the monsters
become more than a little harder when you take that step. I recommend using
some of the time you have to level up and gather materials; you will find
yourself needing large amounts later, and working on your level is never a
bad idea in Ys games. Neither is working for good equipment. Once you have
gained some good equipment from the shops and gotten accustomed to the game,
you can enter the opened cavern and check it out. There's not much to the
cavern, only a path down to the bottom where a shrine is located, an a chest
in the north cliff which holds another [Iko Extract].

  Touching the shrine awakens a titano boss which resembles a two-headed
turtle. Val Klar is its name, and I think a note should be placed here
about bosses. Bosses in Ys games are not simple games of button mashing;
doing so will get you killed. Why? The boss will almost always have more
health than you could ever hope to have. You need to observe the attacks
and work out ways to hit while avoiding being hit. The good news is the stun 
meter in this game; situated above the monster's portrait is a bar which
slowly fills with blue as the monster is hit. When it fills, the monster
will be stunned and completely vulnerable to repeated attacks. Skills will
more rapidly fill the gauge, and later equipment will make it easier to
pump it to full.

  Val Klar has highly telegraphed moves, and they are relatively simple to
dodge. The two most devastating ones are simple to dodge, if you can see
them coming. The overgrown turtle will spin in place and draws you in,
bouncing you repeatedly back to be drawn in if you don't roll out of the
way. His other attack is to roar and summon a bunch of spikes out of the
ground ahead of his facing. The camera will zoom on him when he does this,
so you get ample warning along with an easy time of telling where he will
aim it. Beyond that, he has a quick lunge of his head straight out at a
target, a sweep of his other head across in an arc, a spinning dash around
the edge of the battlefield, and a breath of water bubbles which spreads
outwards. When a warning sign appears with a timer, start pouring on damage as
fast and as hard as you can. If you can interrupt this attack, you will avoid
a boss' Rush attack; this is usually a highly-damaging attack which can be
difficult to dodge. In this case, Val Klar will drop icicles in the arena
ahead of him in a slightly randomized order. 

  Once you beat the turtle down to an inch of its life, it will become
completely immune to attacks. The shrine will activate Adol's Extra Skill:
Lunar Blade. Using this attack will finish off the turtle, and move things
along. The battle proved to be a little too much for Adol, and he collapses
in the shrine cavern.

### Part One: The Tangled Woods of Shannoa ####################################


  Adol will wake up with the little flower girl fussing over him, as the older
blue-haired flower girl and Dogi returng to help Adol up. The herbalist
introduces herself as Tia, and formally introduces Maya as her little sister.
After Adol and Dogi depart, you can go see the King and relate what happened;
this advances the story, and will trigger some events opening up for you. The
King will give a little information to you, but he runs out of information
rather swiftly. The King considers the village Elders might have a better
sense of the events and starts Adol and Dogi off towards Shannoa. He writes a 
letter of introduction to the Eldress, and mentions it is to the southwest of
the plains. Once you have the letter, more of the quests will open for you
around town. These quests are "Delivery from Tia", "Waters of Altago", 
"Beautiful Flower Seeds", and "Jewel Collection".

  Enter Altago Plains: East and meet Migo, who represent flamingos which will
spit stones at you. Wandering westward and climbing north, you can come across
Lughott blooms which will give you some seeds rarely to add to your inventory.
Further north you can run into a chest which holds another [Iko Extract] for
you. North from there is some [Iron Ore], and a rock which can be broken by
Dogi's potent punches. The hidden chest holds a [Vitality Belt I]. Be careful,
since from here you can enter the outskirts of the plains and meet Bal Kilios,
the One-Horned Monster. You cannot hurt it yet, and it can very easily kill
you. Return to the fork in the road, and take it south a short distance until
you can walk off to the east. Another Lughott bloom is hidden here, and you
can head under the bones to the north for a [Hawk Eye I]. In Altago Plains:
Southeast you can find a treasure chest just off to the east which holds
[Iron Ore x10] protected by a Deagrafm. Otherwise, it's a short trail into
Shannoa Forest.

  Shannoa Forest is to the southeast of the Altago Plains, and once you get
in you will be greeted by new scenery and monsters. Monsters which can, and
will, poison you if you aren't careful. To the east you can find a chest
holding a [Power Wrist I], well worth the fighting it takes to reach it. As you
pass to the northern exit, a young boy will stop Adol and Dogi, demanding to
know their business. After showing him the letter from the King, he'll run off
with it. Take a swift detour in chasing him to the west and grab another [Iko
Extract]. Once in the next area, fight eastwards to a barely hidden passage to
the east and grab the chest. The [Shield Ring I] is another useful accessory
to have on hand. Cross the rope bridge and use the stone monument to restore
your health before following the young boy.


  In the northern cul-de-sac there is a Long-Tusked Boar, Es Gallion. Its
attacks are predictable and straightforward, but are fast. Avoid standing
directly in front of it, and you should wind up doing fine. Unload Strength
Blast on it to tire it out, or have Dogi pound away; pick a method you are
comfortable with but remain mobile. It can puff out a bunch of green gas
which stun you briefly and set up a damaging chain of hits. One of the more
dangerous rage-like moves Es Gallion will perform is to charge rapidly and
repeatedly around the area, dealing a lot of damage with each hit. Once he
stops, you can nail him with a charged strike or two to charge your skills.
Don't be afraid to unleash Lunar Blade, since it can take a large chunk out
of this boss' health. Once you defeat the boar, the young boy will hand back
the letter grudgingly and introduce himself as Elk. Then he runs off, leaving
you to travel onwards to the village.

### Part One: The Tangled Woods of Shannoa ####################################

  From the battle area, head south and to the east constantly. After you come
around a large pond, you can see a chest out on the water. Run around and grab
it for a valuable [Mirula Incense]. From there, you can just loop around and
reach the village gates. The village is rather laid-back but welcoming to the
strangers. Take some time to check out the shop; some goods can be synthesized
here rather than at Altago City. Worth noting is the Cicero Cutter (Str +23,
Earth Shaker) for Adol, since it is a large jump in power up from the Long
Sword available now. The material requirement is very steep, however. The
skill on the Long Sword (Running Slash) is useful for combat later, since it
allows Adol to attack in a glancing rush. If you have excess gold, then get
yourself equipped and prepared again. 

  Eldress Fatima greets Adol and Dogi, and after reading the letter, she gives
up the key to enter the Ancient Tree. Elk will accompany you to the tree,
giving you a temporary third member of the party. Talking around town will
allow you to pick up a few quests before you go: "No Pole, Resilient Soul",
and "Forest Guardian Pilgrimage". Don't forget to deliver Tia's Medicine to
Eldress Fatima, while you are here; you'll get a [Dragon Energy Drop]. Once
you're ready, head out to the east and enter the Ancient Tree's area.

  On the way to the tree itself, there are two chests to the east which
contain [Iko Extract] and [Shield Ring I]. Don't try to walk the sunken path,
because you can't breathe underwater and are sure to die. However, at the
lower entrance you can find a [Mirula Incense], so it's worth the side-trip.
Along the upper path you will find a chest with [Salimera Extract], also
useful. Once at the locked gate, you'll get a quick tutorial about how to
use the item screen for plot-progression items. Enter the tree itself now,
and be careful. This place can be confusing, and the enemies have taken
another step up in power. Head north-east and cut through the various enemies
with Adol and Elk, stopping on a short detour to a lower area to pick up a
chest with [Charcoal x10] inside. Out the east exit you will meet some archer
enemies; beyond them you will find another chest with [Charocoal x10] in it.
Climbing to the next area, you will meet the large Viwhorl enemies. Be
careful ignoring these, since they have a considerable range of attack with
their petals. Carefully avoid the spikes to collect [Prairie Wood x10] before
climbing down the vine. Avoid standing next to the large fungus-covered
Vizo-Naghil since they can attack a wide area around them, and can take a lot
of punishment. Take the chest to the southeast holding [Monster Bone x15] and
continue heading west. You'll find some [Ancient Tree Sap] which will allow
you to proceed further in the dungeon. It will also make back-tracking a
whole lot more confusing, since there are a lot of places to use it.

  Back-track to the entrance (you can use the sap to make a shortcut part of
the way) and use the sap to move to the east. Outside, kill a Viwhorl and
collect some [Salimera Extract] before heading up and inside for a [Vitality
Belt I]. Now head north in this area and use the sap to cross across to an
egg-infested area. The larvae here are annoying and can poison you, but
shouldn't be a problem. Collect a chest with [Monster Bone x15] and move
outside to climb up. A half-hidden chest here will hold [Monster Fur x10], so
don't miss it or the one south of it with [Thick Hide x10]. To the east you
can miss an area where you need to cut through some thick deadwood, where a
Viwhorl guards two chests. Collect the [White Snake Ring] as well as [Iron
Ore x15] and return to the stone monument next to the door. 

  Inside, you should avoid the spikes very carefully while fighting on the
platforms and avoiding Mand-viwhorl attacks. A quick side-trip to the south
will provide you with a [Panacea] (you have to get the chest quick since it's
technically underwater), and [1000 gold]. Another half-hidden chest holds a
[Salimera Extract] and the vine going down is easy to bypass in a rush to
keep moving forward. Climb down it for a [Silver Feather], which is almost
vital for the boss fight since it prevents the status effect 'Heavy'.  Use
the sap to build a bridge, then climb back up the vine to continue along. Held
in more deadwood is a chest holding [Diamond Boots]; now you need not worry
about the spiked areas on the floor. Follow the spiked path down and collect
some [Kamika Extract], and a place to use the sap for a quick shortcut back to
the entrance to the tree. Backtrack to the watery bridge and use the boots'
power to move through the thorny patch. Save your game, because the boss fight
ahead can be aggrivating if you're not quite ready.

  A coccoon is waiting here, as Elk notes it is a titano close to maturity.
The Big Bug Beast, Zeran Fith, will burst out of its coccoon and attack you
relentlessly. Your main goal is to cut its legs from under it, which will stun
it and leave it open to be smacked around. After about half its life has been
whittled down, Zeran Fith changes tactics and calls in two larvae to help out
while it starts being stationary. It will also throw its sticky tongue out
and trap a character, slowly draining their health while you have to cut them
free swiftly. Equipping the Silver Feather is recommended, since it can be
difficult to avoid being stuck with it's webbing. This fight can be highly
annoying and drawn out for a long time by needing to take out the legs before
being able to even damage Zeran Fith.  

  After defeating the spider-beast, Elk will share a little bit of his
background and then lead Adol and Dogi to the Earth Altar. The Earth Dragon
will speak to the party and bestow on Adol the Earth Seal. This will activate
Party Effects from all the members of the party; each member has their own
bonus. Elk, unsettled by this, will not be much help explaining what is going
on, so go back to the Eldress and talk it over with her. She comments that
the other village Elders would know other things to talk about with Adol, and
mentions General Dreisen would know about the Segram Village altar. Before
you leave, take care of unfinished business in the village; the quest "Forest
Guardian Pilgrimage" can be completed easily enough right now since you
picked up a White Snake Ring in the Ancient Tree. The reward is a [Silver
Snake Ring], so it is well worth it. If you forgot to give Tia's Medicine to
Eldress Fatima, Elk will take it there for you, thus allowing you to complete
the quest (but not get the reward).

### Part Two: Dry and Dangerous Segram Desert #################################


  On the trip back, Adol and Dogi run into Tia being cornered by some monsters.
After a very brief battle, you can escort her home; it's not a long trip at
all. Once back, be sure you stop in and show Charcoal to Michael Wootton and
give Cloudy Water to the bartender to try out. Also talk to Belinda Nis in the
public square and offload your seeds for a little extra gold. Once you are
finished, go to the palace to find General Dreisen to talk to. He'll give it
some consideration, and says he cannot talk about it since he is not the
Segram Elder anymore. He'll write a recommendation for the current Elder to
talk with Adol and Dogi. After this, you can start hearing about a monster
stalling traffic through the Rock Tunnel. Talk with Kevin Lassiter in the
Tavern, and he will offer a reward if the monster "just so happens to die".
Considering you'll need to kill it to advance, this quest is worth taking
before leaving. You can miss it pretty easily, too, and thus have a quest
missed entirely. 

  As you start to leave town, a young girl who's been around the city being
quietly mysterious stops Adol and Dogi to go with them. She introduces herself
as Aisha, but pushes her way past any more questions with her bossy demeanor.
Aisha uses a bow to attack, and the shop will sell new equipment now. Take a
moment to pick up the Longbow for Aisha, since Tumble Arrow is a very useful
skill to use later on. Take some time to learn it, since it is so valuable. 
Talk to Tia before you leave, and she'll offer you a [Luminous Stone] to
help you light the cave along the way. Take a trip to Altago Plains: Center,
and use Aisha's bow to nail the flying insects along the way. Explore the
area and you can find chests holding [Sapling x15] and a [Salimera Extract].
You can also detour south into the Lakeside and Highlands, for a chest
containing a [Dragon Energy Drop]. Head west out of the Center area into
Altago Plains: West. 

  This is a sprawling area, and the Lapalms here can be dangerous to those
not paying attention to them. Climb to the northwest corner and you can find
a chest containing the [Dragon Fig]; eating it will allow you to see monster
drops in the lower left corner of the screen display. Then move to the east
and go into the small pond to claim another chest containing [Large Bone
x10], which is pretty useful for future synthesis efforts. In the south
section, you can find a [Shimmer Brooch I] in the chest, which will find a
nice match with Aisha. Proceed into Altago Plains: Southwest, and work your
way through slowly. You can collect a [Salimera Extract] in a depression
along the pathway, and nearby another chest will hold another [Dragon Energy
Drop]. The peddler near the cave will sell or synthesize any items you might
need, including a Luminous Stone if you failed to talk to Tia before leaving. 

  Inside the Cave Bypass, there are all sorts of enemies which come after
you, and they all can take a significant amount of punishment. The pathway
through is simple, but don't miss out on a chest halfway through containing
a [Traveler's Robe] for Aisha. Close to the far end there is another chest
containing [2000 gold], also not to be missed. Once at the end, you will
find yourself in battle with the Rock Monster, Ghilda Ros. This guy can be
really a pain to fight, since he is not as slow as you might assume. His
attacks are well-telegraphed so you can avoid them easily enough so long as
you aren't committed to an attack. He can jump in the air and drop once,
causing a wave of energy which hits for serious damage and a shockwave to make
people unsteady long enough for him to recover and line up an attack. He can
slam his mace into the ground, sending a shockwave forwards, or can rapidly
strike the ground three times and "juggle" a character who is hit. He can leap
into the air and land three times quickly in a similar fashion, so be careful
to tell the difference between the attacks. Lastly, he will ready a spinning
attack which will go a good distance and then he becomes unsteady and falls,
leaving you ample time to put the hurt on him. Be patient and you won't have
too much trouble killing him.

  The Segram Desert has some real catchy music, worth listening to for a
while. Work your way west to a chest, containing a [Dragon Energy Drop]. If
you haven't used any yet, you'll have to put it back. Further along the
elevated path you can find a [Power Wrist I] guarded by two Lapalm-dos, and a
chest with [Hot Sandstone x10]. Taking the trip down onto the sands is
dangerous, since the enemy density gets very bad there. However, almost all
the good material spots are down there, along with the way to proceed. Once
you reach Segram Desert: West, head to the west passages for [2500 gold] and
yet don't pass west yet; there's an optional titano boss in there who is a
much higher level than you. Head to the eastern passages to find a [Hawk Eye I]
next to the oasis. Across from that chest on the west side of the oasis is
[Cloudy Water x10]. Once you are finished fighting off the monsters of the
desert, move south and then east to Segram Village. 

  Segram Village is made of sandstone, and its inhabitants are a lot less open
than the Shannoan villagers. It's to be expected, since you learn there are
almost daily titano attacks. Take some time to upgrade your equipment at the
store and check out what you can synthesize. Once you are ready to meet the
elder, go into the building next to the large temple structure and . . . meet
a young girl named Cruxie. It's pronounced Croo-she-eh, spoken together
quickly, by the way. She briefly talks with Adol and his friends before
collapsing in a coughing fit. Aisha then takes charge to get her the medicine
she needs prepared, in time for Cruxie's brother to come home and find the
party at Cruxie's bed. He doesn't wait for an explaination and starts a fight
with Adol and his friends, until Cruxie can calm him down to explain better.
It doesn't help much, as Mustafa does not like General Dreisen at all. He
grudgingly allows Adol's group to travel with him to the Fire Shrine, but
only if they promise not to do anything against his orders.

  Mustafa uses a large hammer to attack with, giving you another strike-type
attacker to add to your party for the trip. Segram Desert: East shows off a lot
of monsters, and a good deal of material spots to gather from. Right as you
come down the ramp onto the sand, you can find a [Salimera Extract] to the
north. Head east and go up to the upper level, following the edge of the cliff
before turning north. You will get a [Flash Ring I] from a chest, which makes
a nice addition to your accessories. In the open area to the east from there,
you can find [Sebrina Incense] and a [Titano Bone]. Both of these are quite
valuable, so hang onto them.

  Passing on from there, you will encounter the titano Sand Eater Soldi Orm,
which you cannot hope to defeat yet. You can snag a chest with [Hard Hide x10]
in it if you can be quick enough. Beyond that is the Flame Shrine entrance, and
a stern reminder from Mustafa to be respectful inside the shrine. Take a right
as soon as the path opens out and you can find [Hot Sandstone x10]. Continuing
on, you will find some of the path underneath lava. You can't walk on magma any
more than you could breathe underwater before, so stay clear of those areas
now. Proceed and you will come to a chamber where grates rise and fall from
the lava pool, and you need to quickly cross while it's safe. After crossing,
you can head left and grab another [Silver Feather] if you can time the grates
well. Another chamber of grates awaits, and this one can be a little trickier.
On the left side of the pool is a chest with [Hard Hide x20] inside, but it can
be a little tricky to get it without being burned. On the far side, you will
find an elevator going down. Pass it and hit the floor switch to lower the
gate, before taking the elevator downwards. 

  Down in the shrine's basement you will come across the boss Stohl Bram, the
avian Fire-Eater. Don't understimate it because it looks like a chicken without
feathers, it can still be dangerous. Most of its attacks are charging lunges,
but it can peck (with fire-explosions) three times in quick succession, and
spit fire out. The good news is that Dogi and Mustafa together can seriously
drive up the stun meter with skills, and Adol's Earth Breaker or Strength
Burst can make it easier. After the battle, you are able to find the [Ice Mist
Crystal] which will permit you to walk on lava. Now you can backtrack and
collect treasures formerly out of reach. 

  First backtrack to the floor switch and go to the lava-submerged area. The
chest in the lava holds a [Fire-proof Scarf], and beyond it you can go to
another chest and floor switch you could see before. The chest has [Nadly
Extract] in it, which is worth hanging onto for now rather than using. In
the section past the elevator to the right, you can cross the lava and find
a [Salimera Extract] if you need to replenish after the boss. In the short
screen with the lava pool you can cross for more [Salimera Extract] and a
[Kamika Extract], but gates prevent you from getting too much further.
Retrace your steps to just before the room where you found the Silver Feather,
then head to the right. You will exit outside the Shrine, and can step out
into the sands. A large monster rolling around will attack, but you can take
it out with Dogi and Mustafa. A hidden chest here (as in, you can't see it
well) holds [3000 gold], and the guarded chest holds a [Training Ring I].

  In the next chamber, the grates return, but also a pair of lava pools whose
levels aren't matched. Go around to the right and hit the floor switch to
lower the gate, then use the lever to equalize the lava pools. In the western
chest is [2500 gold] and in the eastern chest is [Hot Sandstone x20]. Through
the door are more enemies and a floor switch to raise a bridge. With this
shortcut open, you can proceed deeper to the left and grab a chest with more
[Sebrina Incense] in it. Proceeding on you will reach the last room before
the altar, and the guardian statue: Levard Galem.

  This boss is painful, but rather easy once you know where to hit. Bring
Dogi and Mustafa in and beat at the stomach of the Levard Galem. The Galem's
attacks largely will miss you so long as you stand directly in front of the
stomach, but if you are forced to back away I advise going for the far
corners and waiting to see what attacks come next. Once you have an opening,
go for the weak point again. Honestly, this battle I have not done in a
technically decent fashion, but I only had to use one Salimera Extract to keep
Mustafa on his feet while I churned out hammer strikes.

  After defeating the guardian statue, Adol can commune with the Fire Altar.
Adol's presence brings the Fire Dragon to awake, and grant its Seal.
Furthermore, now you can use Teleportation. After Adol gains the power of
Teleportation, Mustafa will  change his tune immensely and offer to tell Adol
what he knows about the Dragons. After learning all you can, it's time to
return back to Altago City and get further directions. The best thing about
Teleportation is how simple it makes travel now when you have to backtrack.
Spend a little time taking care of quest deliveries before returning to the
city, and be sure to do everything you can around Segram Village.

### Part Three: The Dark and Damp Old Waterway ################################


  Returning to Altago City, you will start hearing about an intruder who was
in the royal palace and chased off. A foreigner in black with a long polearm,
who is almost instantly familiar to those who played the previous game.
Because of the intruder, everything is locked down tightly and Adol isn't
permitted to leave the city. Tia is selling her flowers with Maya in the
common square, but since everyone is so nervous and on alert there are not
many customers. Maya falls sick, and you carry her back to Old Town. The news
which follows is grim indeed; Maya has the same illness as Cruxie, but it's
less likely she can get the medicine which is needed. 

  Father Daleyon tells you one of the merchant companies is hoarding Scarlet
Crystals, the rare but necessary component which makes the medicine work.
Zanzibar is selling it for immense amounts of gold, and is gouging every sick
petitioner for as much as he can get. Adol and Dogi try to talk to him, but as
soon as he gets wind it's for someone in Old Town he shuts them down and the
trio is forced to leave without the crystals. After relaying the news, Tia
comments about how there might still be some to be found in the Old Waterway;
she runs off to the access door and tries to butter her way in past Commander
Raud. He toys with her for a while, and it starts looking like the plan is
going to fall through. Instead, Aisha pulls him aside and has a short talk
which ends in a suddenly compliant Raud leaving the area. Adol and Dogi agree
to escort Tia through to where the Scarlet Crystals might be.

  The Old Waterway is a short maze of tunnels, with a few monsters in them.
Take your time to work through the side-passages and you will find the [Gavel
of Souls], a [Nadly Extract], [Sebrina Incense]. You can also find a bridge
to lower for a shortcut to the exit just before you enter the boss lair.
Valisa Luti, the Deep-Earth Crab, is waiting for you on a large platform. Its
attacks are not too dangerous by this point, as it is slow to actually make
the attacks after signaling. With your equipment fully upgraded by now, and a
lot of decent skills to unload, Valisa Luti will fall rather painlessly. After
the battle Adol, Dogi, and Tia gather some Scarlet Crystals to help Maya's
fever. A quick trip to the exit, and Tia heads off to get the medicine while
Adol, Dogi, and Aisha get the Dragon Knight to lock the gate again.

### Part Four: Wind-worn Heights of Kylos Village #############################


  After taking care of Maya, Commander Scias will come by to formally introduce
Adol and Dogi to Aisha. She is actually Princess Aisha Sari Edonas, daughter of
the king. After a quick talk, Scias agrees to let the princess continue
traveling with the due and leaves. The next stop is to be Kyros Village now,
along the northwest gorges from the Altago Plains. Gorge Way holds some
treasure chests in it, holding [Mirula Incense], and a [Salimera Extract].

  Passing into Kylos Gorge, take a turn to the south and grab the [3000 gold]
in the chest. Climbing the paths, be aware the enemies here will take a lot of
punishment and potentially require skills to take down quickly. Aisha's Tumble
Arrow can get a lot of use here, as well as her Killer Hornet. Dogi's Kaiser
Rush is very quick to drop enemies but costs roughly half the accumulated SP.
Adol's Rising Blade and Earth Shaker both make good attacks against landbound
creatures. Up the path near the south cavern is a chest with [Ashen Rock x10].
The caves are connected, so it matters little where you enter from. Once you
pass into the Northwest Gorge, you must travel into the caves to move on. 

  After going through the caverns, you will be stopped by a man in black. Adol
and Dogi both know him from previous adventures as Geis, and Geis knows Adol
as a meddling idiot who gets in over his head without regard for the dangers.
But he does respect Adol's talent, and offers a sparring match. Geis is not
terribly hard to beat, but he is quicker than he looks. Just counterattack
rather than making your own attack patterns, and you should make him yield
fast. Aisha doesn't like him much, but Adol and Dogi both shrug it off as
"that's the way Geis is". 

  Up the path a way you can find a [Nadly Extract] and then a rope bridge
across the chasm. Move across, and you're most of the way to Kylos Village.
Stop and break open a boulder to find an [Indigo Wing Bangle], which is a
rather good increase in defensive power for either Aisha or Dogi. Past the top
of this path is Kylos Village, and your next stop. You can talk around the
village and learn that Adol is expected "as the Eldress thought". Listen
around town and you can find a quest to pass time. "Milling the Windmills" has
you deliver specific materials for windmill repair, all of which should be
available. If you need more, you can find some outside the village in the
gorge areas. You'll earn a [Scroll of Valor], which will make you do more
damage when your HP is low; this is for those who like to live dangerously. 

  While we're doing quests, backtrack some and knock some out from the old
list. With Ashen Rocks you can finish the lectures from Michael Wootton and
earn a [Scroll of Mastery], which increases the chance of landing a critical
hit. If you were lucky with seed-finding, you can finish with Belinda Nis also
and earn a [Fortune Orb]. This neat little thing will let you earn experience
by walking around, meaning you could in theory never need to fight again. In
Shannoa you can deliver Withered Hardwood to Chris Gouin, earning a [Shimmer
Brooch II]. In Segram, Sara Stewart will accept Nadly Flowers and give you a
[Flash Ring II]. Also worth noting, the cash reward for these are nothing to
sneeze at, so you can easily fill your pouch for new equipment. If you are
extra committed, you might also have some chance filling "Jewel Collection". 

  When you are all ready to proceed, travel northeast to meet Eldress Mishera,
the blind seer. She listens to whispers in the winds, and so she hears all
sorts of things which people don't normally see. After a brief discussion,
she wants to travel with Adol into the Holy Precincts of Wind to the altar.
She joins your party, and is a pretty interesting character. She has a lot of
powerful skills focused around ranged attacks, and can be as useful as Aisha
in some places. Her skill Tornado is a devastating attack when aimed
carefully, so it is well worth getting it for her.

  The Holy Precincts of Wind are sprawling platforms connected by bridges and
focused on the towers at the one end. Once you start moving along the paths,
head north to open the bridge to continue. Along the way you will find a
[Panacea] and a [Nadly Extract]. Continue north and you can find a [Sebrina
Incense] in case you weren't full. Be careful of the Bataluf enemies inside
the towers, since they can inflict the Confuse status. Follow the pathways
around the platforms until you can fall down the middle of a spiral, and
claim the chest's contents. The [Wind Cape] will allow you to climb the air
currents in some spots, so you can continue on inside the Holy Precincts.
Cilmb the nearby wind and open the gate for ease of backtracking, then
proceed to the west and climb for an [Amulet Rosary]. Furthermore, you can
backtrack to the outside platforms and to the northwest for a [Blue Jewel],
which is well worth the sidetrack if you plan on using SP-heavy skills on your
characters.

  Continuing through the main tower with the Wind Cape, you will pass a
mechanism you cannot do anything with. Simply continue heading east, and
through to the next area. Here you can see a blue chest on the wind-path, and
you'll need to remove the Wind Cape to claim your [Rune Earrings].  Also you
have a hazard where it is seriously easier to remove the Wind Cape and dodge
the spiked pillars from the ground. You can claim a chest with [Monster Horn
x20] down there too. Standing in front of that chest, re-equip the Wind Cape
and grab the [Titano Fluid]. Keep moving and in the far corner you can do
more fun with spiked pillars for a [Gold Pendant]. Drop into the center area
and get the [Wind Pipe] after killing off the enchanted armor guarding it.
Continue out into the sidepath and cut your way through. Once using the Wind
Cape, you can get some chests near the mechanism holding [Thin Hide x20] and
a [Chigle Extract]. Use the floor switch to open a shortcut down from above,
and be sure you grabbed the Wind Pipe. Teleport to the top, and stick it
into the open slot, before adjusting the fans below to blow into the
mechanism. It is uncovered as an organ of some sort, and playing it with the
wind opens the path upwards. Save before moving onwards, and climb into the
wind current. 

  Now begins the battle with Kava Kelos, the Ferocious Bird. Bring Aisha and
Mishera since both of them have attacks strong aainst the avian. There is a
lot of danger in this battle of getting caught in combination-attacks, so
keep an eye out for your openings and choose your attacks wisely. Gold
Pendants to protect against Stone are very useful, on your AI-controlled
allies. When Kava Kelos drops its eggs, hit them hard and fast to avoid
having your battle complicated by its chicks. Above all else, do not let it
get a Rush off or you can be put in for a lot of damage. Use your skills to
whittle it down slowly, and either switch to Aisha or Mishera to refill your
SP by hitting from range with charged hits.

  (A special note here, there are monsters which are summoned during this
battle which are unique to it. If you are shooting for a full bestiary, do
not miss out on killing the chicks! They become listed under "Ptokeros".)

  Afterwards, Mishera will direct you down to the Wind Altar and the Dragon
will bestow on Adol its Crest. The Wind Crest quickens charged attacks and
provides more SP from a hit. Mishera finds the words ominous, and finally
will start spelling out why the Dragons have been referencing dire events
in their speeches. Apparently with two missing tribes, the balance is
skewed and something has to be done. Mishera offers the answer of communing
with the last altar, to the Sea Dragon. Aisha protests that it has been lost,
but is reminded that the fourth tribe remains active. The Edona Tribe
resides in Altago City, and its elder is King Kiemarl Edonas. He would know
of where to find the Sea Altar, and how to access it. 

  Before you attend to that, there is a quest now active which you should take
care to do. Wes Herbst dropped some earrings for his daughter in the gorge and
needs Adol and Dogi to find them. There are actually four types of earrings
which can be found, and only one is what he is looking for. First are the
[Dull Earrings] which are found in the midst of the suspension bridge.
Secondly, you can find the [Flashy Earrings] in a cave to the west from the
village entrance. Next are a pair of [Cute Earrings] which are in the cave
just before Geis intercepted you on the path. Keep backtracking, since the
fourth pair of earrings is yet to be found. Right outside of the cave, head up
the slope and examine the plants to find [Peculiar Earrings]. Return the Cute
Earrings to Wes, and you will be given a [Vitality Belt II]. 

  While we are on the topic, it's time to wrap up another few quests; if you
are lucky to have found White Stones in the Wind Precincts, then you stand a
good chance of wrapping up "Jewel Collection". If you have enough Fragrant
Water you can go take care of John Cordova's request for "Waters of Altago",
and Michael Wootton's request for Titano parts to study. Michael Wootton will
give you a [Blue Jewel], John Cordova will give you a [Hawk Eye II]. and
Teresa Runions will give you a [Shield Ring II]. 

  If you are close to Level 30, you can also probably take on Bal Kilios. Since
this is an optional boss, I'll cover it in another section.

### Part Five: The Sea Dragon's Altar #########################################


  When you finally travel into the Altago Palace, Aisha suddenly gets cold feet
and doesn't want her father to know about her connection to you. As you talk
with the King, he gently lets it be known how much he keeps his ears open to
what is going on. Aisha is chastened by this, and the talk turns to the Sea
Dragon Altar. It is located on Ruins Island, which was seen when Adol and Dogi
came into the harbor. Aisha is permitted to go with Adol and Dogi, as a
descendant of the Edona Elders. 

  Be absolutely sure you complete your active quests (except the titano hunts)
before you head off. Once you leave, most of the quests will not be responded
to. This can have a very detrimental effect, since you can still earn a large
amount of gold and some useful accessories. You will be amply warned of the
"no return" nature of this trip, so you can't say you weren't warned.

  On the island, Geis is waiting for Adol, and after a tense conversation Adol
lets him join the party as a guide. From the beach, enter the city and head
left to find a [Nadly Extract]. Continuing on, you can head to the left near
the entrance to the town ruins and grab a [Power Wrist II] from the chest.
Once inside, work your way through but don't go down the one slope; this leads
underwater and you can't handle that path yet. But you can cross a broken
pillar to a balcony which holds a [Vitality Belt II], the path does show up on
the map but the pillar-bridge does not. Continuing down you can find a crest
engraved on the wall which resembles the Altago Royal crest; using the Royal
Signet will open the hidden door and permit Adol and company access. Inside,
you have to fight off two Liwald-Pielle for the [Grattheos Talisman]. After
earning it, travel to the left and claim the [Ogre Shield] from a chest. 

  The underwater section you access from the first room will be full of water
currents which move you around, but if you take the first left you see
underwater, you can fall down a hole which will drop you near some [Nadly
Extract], and a current just south of that location will contain a [Rolika-
Muskra], which can go to Dogi or Geis. Up to the north is a titano fish
Raton'jignut who can take a lot of punishment but has a chance of dropping
 Titano Bones. Once you are out of the water, continue to fight across and
climb down into the water pool to claim [Chain Clothes]. Take the ramps
upwards and use the Wind Cape at the fan to reach a chest holding a [Knight's
Crest]. Up the ramps, you will also find an [Estoc] for Adol, which will give
him Pierce weapon type. Take some time to learn the Scud Sword skill from the
sword, since you will spend some time switching for weapon weaknesses.
Continue along the ramps and platforms, until you reach a pillar which
functions as an elevator. You will find a chest immediately with [Spiked
Leather] in it. Keep moving to the left and you will pass through and
underwater chamber to a different part of the city. In the chamber, you will
find the [Camtha] for Aisha; out of the water you will find a [Trident] for
Geis and the [Naiad Statue]; the statue is apparently the key to controlling
the currents inside the city. Above the statue's old dais you can trigger a
bridge opening up so you can backtrack a little easier.

 In fact, now is a good time to backtrack to the first path where you found
the Wind Cape fan and put the Naiad Statue on the pedestal there. Through
the revealed door you can find a [Garman Cestus] for Dogi, another
Raton'jignut, and two chests with a [Nadly Extract] in each. Retrieve the
statue and return to the underwater whirlpool from before to use the Naiad
Statue. In the chest is the [Eye of Fire], which prevents the frozen status.

  Start working your way back to the massive wave pool and use the Naiad
Statue to make it quiet. Take a right past it, to open a shortcut back to
the entrance, and climb down the ladder to the left. Below you will find five
chests holding: [Nadly Extract x3], [Salimera Extract x3], [Sebrina Incense],
[Mirula Incense], and a [Chigle Extract]. Save before proceeding.

  Avari El, the Demonic Octopus, waits for you. The huge body of the monster
sits at the top of the arena while four tentacles will perform various attacks
around the edges. The real target is the place the small green jellyfish
resides, which means you have to keep an eye out. When it moves, it is
extraordinarily weak to weapon attacks so pour it on. Do not waste time
hammering at places where the target is not residing, or you'll just waste
energy. All of the attacks Avari El can throw out are easily avoided if you
aren't in the throes of attacking. Be careful and you should be able to take
this out without severe troubles. If you want to be more careful, you should
wear the Eye of Fire to prevent getting frozen during the battle. Once the
battle is over, the path to the Sea Altar will open up.

  On the way to the beach a massive lizard-man will stop Adol's party, and you
have a brief boss fight against this titano. Attacking with Adol's Scud Sword
is a good idea, and using charged attacks to rebuild. Sword Dance also is
useful, as is Aisha's Tumble Arrow. Try to avoid its melee swipes, since it can
cover a large arc of area in front of it. It should not take long to take out
the boss.

  Once you defeat it, more foes arrive and menace the group, outnumbering them.
Then the Dragon Knights arrive in one of their warships to destroy them. All
is not well, however, as not only do the knights arrive they come in full
force. Commanders Scias and Raud are present with General Dreisen, and they
take Adol's party into custody for a laundry list of crimes which culminate in
the assassination of King Kiemarl. 


### Part Six: Waking the Dragons ##############################################


  Adol comes back into focus with him being beaten by Ursa in the prisons. Geis
and Dogi are plotting escape, while Aisha is trying to figure out how to play
both the role of Sovereign and be Adol's supporter. Despite protests, Adol is
sentenced to death by combat in the Coliseum against a titano. He is given a
[Gladius], [Buckler], and [Nadly Extract] by Scias as the only tools allowed
in his fight.  

  Ygses Toluga, the Enraged Titano, is the "Beast of Judgement" and he is a
pain in the rear. Using Flash Guard (L+R) can make this a whole lot easier,
since it will help power your skills and charge up your Extra gauge. All of
his attacks save for his rolling charge and his back-foot digging are simple to
time and block. The rolling charge is a dangerous gamble since if you are too
far away or positioned wrong, you can get hit a second time outside of the
guard stance. Use Scud Sword or Sword Dance to deal damage, and when your Extra
is charged you should unleash Lunar Crystal Blade. With patience you should be
able to win this out to the astonishment of everyone. You can just use the
dodge roll instead of Flash Guard, but this will take much longer to finish,
and you run a risk while you dart in to fill your SP.

  After the upset in the Coliseum, Geis and Dogi bust Adol out of the arena
floor and together they flee into the city. Tia shows Adol and Dogi a way out
through the sewers, while Geis says he still has to guide Adol to a meeting.
Travel west to the Lakeshore and then into the Highlands, where Geis will show
Adol a hidden world. A man arrives who introduces himself as Ciarius. You are
welcomed to the Iska Village, and given a long rundown on what is going on. At
the end of it, the allies from the rest of the villages come to join you, with
new equipment in hand and willing to help out. The goal is now to go to the
three Sanctums and wake the Dragons to learn how to restore the balance.

  First, take a walk around town and collect quests from the residents of Iska
Village. You can pick up the quest "Lecture: Dragons of Altago" now, as well as
one for "Spirit Elixir Concoction", both of which are far from being in danger
of being finished yet. Load up on equipment if you need to, and then start
moving on. After this, it's time to remember where the underwater paths are.
You can't teleport until you remark the stone monuments. Also, new monsters
begin appearing who are titanos; these monsters resemble larger and meaner
versions of older monsters. Lastly, the three villages will all sell different
gear in their shops; it's worthwhile to travel to each and take a look.

  Grafm-goa     (Drops Titano Bone and Titano Spine)
  Zonaghillian  (Drops Titano Fluid)
  Ginovvider    (Drops Titano Bone and Titano Spine)
  Ildohrga      (Drops Titano Fluid)
  Stohlhatom    (Drops Titano Bone and Titano Spine)
  Ergallion     (Drops Titano Bone and Titano Spine)

  Altago Plains: West is completely blocked by the Dragon Knights, requiring
you to find another way through. Luckily, Geis gave you the [Moonsong Bell]
which he used to open the glyphed path. You can use it to travel through
hidden pathways, and thus get around the roadblocks set up. You can do the
Sanctums in any order, but you can also take care of some business before you
go into the Sanctums. We'll start with Segram, where there are two wild
titanos to work on if you have the will and power. Opening the Wilderness, you
will fight largely titanos in here, which means less enemies but more
likelihood of having damage done. In this section of Wilderness, have Dogi go
to the north and punch a rock to reveal a hidden [Hawk Eye III]. From there,
walk around to claim [Titano Fluid x20]. In the next screen Dogi can reveal a
[Silver Telegnosis], and there are a [Chigle Extract] and [Shale x20] hidden by
the rocks.

  Once you exit into Altago Plains: Southwest, Sigroon will get the drop on you
with a bow and arrow and demand answers. After speaking with Adol, she
proclaims he is a lunatic and yet her princess ordered her to assist Adol in
keeping Altago safe.  Sigroon comes aboard knowing all the skills Aisha had at
the same levels, so you don't have to waste time powering her up. You can open
another passage inside the Cave Bypass, leading you into the Moonlight Path.
Here there are dozens of rather strong crab monsters, but you can grab a chest
with [Titano Bone x10]. Behind a crushable boulder on the east wall is a
[Shimmer Brooch III], and past that is a spot you can use the Grattheos
Talisman to find [Titano Fluid x20] The northern section holds a [Maom Extract]
and [Striga Extract]. Once you are through, touch the Kylos Village stone and
return to the Cave Bypass to continue your trek. Or, if you are feeling like a
fight, step into Kylos Village.

  In Kylos, three Dragon Knights are bullying some of the villagers and Adol
can't watch it happen. Sigroon recognizes them as members of Commander Raud's
unit, which holds a lot of thugs. This fight is not too bad so long as you do
not let yourself get cornered; three damaging charges from the lances can make
this fight rather short indeed. If they insist on ganging up, punish them with
Sword Dance or other area-damaging skills. Afterwards, Kylos will be open to
you completely.

  Shannoa Village is simpler to reach, since you only need to walk without
using the Moonlight Bell. There are large titano boars, nammed Ergallions, who
now have moved out into the forest. Of the new titano-class monsters which have
emerged, they are probably the least dangerous for the rewards. Once at
Shannoa, you can talk with Eldress Fatima and learn how to enter the Earth
Sanctum. Around the village, Carol Zander will want you to make an offering to
the guardian statue again. This time you will need seven Nadly Flowers and five
Striga Leaves. Add "Forest Guardian: Part 2" to your quest log, and do it as
you gather the materials for it. 

  Lastly, you should take some time and march to restore the connection to the
Shrine of Origins. Simply backtrack to Altago Plains: Northeast, and climb
down into the cavern. You can't go anywhere near the city, so you have to
leave off activating that stone monument for a while yet. Make your way through
the Cave Bypass to Segram Desert and you can run into the joyous titano
Ildohrga; this beast is rather similar to the Enraged Titano in the Coliseum,
but it will drop Titano Fluids for you. In Segram, Cruxie will tell Mustafa
the incantation to open the Flame Sanctum while she is having fever dreams. Zak
McShane also is the one who tended pikkards for the village, and during the
earthquake they all escaped. (Those who played Ark of Napishtim will recognize
this quest coming from the moment they saw the pikkard pen; there was something
similar there.) The quest "Finding Pikkards" is also much easier with the stone
monuments active. You may have seen a couple already while rushing about, but
let's do this in an orderly fashion. 

  There are seven pikkards loose in the world, and some of them are more
dangerous than others to go grab. You can only carry one of them at a time, so
be sure to return to Segram to drop it off before starting for the next one.
There is one in the Shrine of Origins, within the altar chamber. Number two can
be found in the Shannoa Forest clearing where Es Gallion was. A third one will
be found at the desert end of the Cave Bypass, in the boss arena. Pikkard four
can be found in the west end of the Wilderness path. Number five can be found
in the Moonlight Path, amongst the various dead ends. Pikkards number six and
seven are found within the dungeons; the sixth one can be found at the end of
the underwater path near the Ancient Tree, and the seventh is in the lower
boss chamber in the Flame Shrine. For returning all the pikkards Adol is given
the [Crimson Jewel], which reduces SP usage by half. Now I'm going to get a
little confusing with the guide; you can technically take the Sanctums in any
order at all, though the game recommends Shannoa first. I'm going to list the
sections as subdivisions of Part Six, and go through them in the order I myself
tackled them.

### Part Six A: The Earth Sanctum #############################################


  The Earth Sanctum entrance is simplest to reach, since you can bypass most of
the Ancient Tree by going into the lower entrance immediately. Take a trip to
the west, and grab a chest holding a [White Talisman]. This accessory is an
absolute godsend in status-heavy areas, since it prevents every single one.
After that, be sure you tag both of the stone monuments and enter the Earth
Altar. Elk will recite the incantation to open the Sanctum and you may enter.

  Inside this wonderful and natural place, you will find all sorts of tough
monsters, and need to use Ancient Tree Sap again. Use it to awake the flowers
as you need to and open the pathways. Down from your start is a [Panacea],
before you need to use the Sap to proceed from the first platform. After that,
head southwards and you will find a [Shield Ring III]. Head north to find a
vine, and climb down and around; be sure you collect from the materials points
because this is the only place to find the high-quality goods you will need for
some weapons. Once back on the ground level, you will need to destroy two
parasitic pods to use the Sap. Near one of the pods you can get [20000 gold]
in a chest. Around the pathways you can grab a [Sebrina Incense] and a [Stone
Ring] before heading down again.


   At the next lower-level area you can find [Earth Stone x20] in a chest
directly south from the vine. The next Sap point needs to be triggered in order
to wake the parasites, and you will wind up having to cross some flytraps to
reach the second one. Once that is done, you can backtrack to the flower which
bloomed and grab a [Poison Ring]. Climb up the left side of the center to open
the next blossom, and take the chest containing [Monster Spine x20].  Climb
around and you can kill the other parasite from before, opening the center
blossom to reveal a seal of some sort. Stepping on it will move your party
into the next area.

  Once you arrive, turn right and climb up the branch to reach a chest holding
[Earth Stone x20]. The path is long and you will have to hack through quite a
few monsters, but at the northwest corner you can find a chest holding a
[Striga Extract] and one of the places you can find Spiritual Water. Once
through the next area, you will need to use the Luminous Stone to see, and the
monsters in the room can be very hard to track. After you kill them all though,
you will be allowed to reach a chest holding a very nice [Training Ring II].
Once through the dark patch, you can head right and find a [Violet Dual Blade]
for Elk; it's highly recommended you use it to learn the new skill on it.
Terran Vortex is an extremely powerful strike, and it can hit quite a lot of
enemies at once.

  Beyond this point is a stone monument and the Sanctum's final point. Here
Adol can commune with Rada-Manj the Earth Dragon, and it will demand an ordeal
by combat before helping you. The Earth Dragon needs to have four crystals
broken on its legs before you can harm it directly, and it will both indirectly
and directly attack you to keep you away from it. Avoid the stomps and keep a
watch for the vines which flow after you from the impact site. If you are close
up, you will not need to worry about fire breath, or the tail swipe. Once you
break the crystals, the head becomes targetable and you can unleash on it.
Beware the rain of rocks from the Dragon, and you should get a nice healthy
chunk of damage in. You will need to repeat the whole ordeal after a while, so
be prepared to beat on its legs for a while more. At a point, the Earth Dragon
will roar you off the platform and begin chasing you in a circle. Avoid its
fireballs and eye beams, and plaster it with damage when it lunges its head
down. This section is much simpler and easier, if you can handle the damage you
might take.

  After the battle you will be given the [Earth Dragon's Stone], and Elk will
be allowed to use Geo Cluster as his Extra skill. After this, you should have
enough Striga Leaves for the guardian statue, so go there and take care of
that. No sooner have you made that offering than you need twenty Withered
Hardwood and Fossilized Twigs for repairs. Once you collect that, you need to
consecrate it with five Spiritual Waters. This can be tricky, since the only
place to collect it so far is in the Earth Sanctum, and it is not commonly
found at the springs. It is worth it, however, since this increases the
maximum HP of every character by 100. Going back to Shannoa to report success
earns you the final sum of gold from Carol Zander (5000 gold) and the
completion of this quest. It is time to move on to the next Sanctum.


### Part Six B: The Flame Sanctum #############################################


  In Segram, the Flame Shrine waits for you. Dogi was expecting to clear a
path through the enemies, Mustafa has a different idea. He runs the party
through to the stone monument just before the Flame Altar, conscious of just
how much time remains. Inside the Flame Sanctum, continue along until you reach
the red-hot floor, then use the Ice Mist Crystal to walk over it. Take the
upper path and you will find a chest with a [Striga Extract]. Take the bottom
path along, then turn north and fight your way through for a [Flame Ring]. Once
you are finished there, take the path along the south to the left and you can
reach a [Power Wrist III]. Backtrack again to the path which threads under the
other walkways, and continue onwards.

  The second room is more of the first, essentially. The new hazards are sheets
of fire which pop up through glowing cracks. Take a quick left for [25000 gold]
and [Marl Incense], before again backtracking along the path. At the top you
will find quicksand pits which drop you down to a large open area with lots of
enemies; avoid these pits if you can. To the left is [Angue-Aribus], a hammer
for Mustafa. Use it to learn the rather awesome Dragon Blaze skill; it costs
90 SP but it can utterly demolish enemies. 

  In the next room, you can see it as a spiral chamber, but the reason becomes
clear the instant you start the room. There is a giant lava monster chasing you
and raising the level of the lava. Hurry through and you can reach the end.
Along the way you can snag a chest holding a [Maom Extract], and the one at the
end holds a [Sapphire]. Before you leave, run around using the Ice Mist Crystal
and you can find another chest with a [Rune Ring]. After that harrowing chase,
you will enter the final chamber of the Sanctum and have your audience with the
Flame Dragon, Angue-Barl. Bring your Ice Mist Crystal.

  Angue-Barl is not quite as difficult as Rada-Manj was, if only because it is
a very straightforward fight. Mustafa's hammer is an invaluable tool, since
Angue-Barl is weak to Strike-type damage. You can immediately unload Inferno
(Mustafa's Extra Skill) and do a large chunk of damage to one of the legs.
Dragon Blaze likewise will carve large chunks out of the Dragon's health.
Angue-Barl has many attacks, but all of them are easily dodged since they take
a moment to strike out. If you see it not about to swing either tail or claws,
then you are best served not being immediately near the area. Wearing the Ice
Mist Crystal will prevent the terrain from being a distraction, or worse, and
if you are wearing an item which prevents flame status then you are just about
set. I'd personally recommend working with the status effect and taking
Crimson Jewel for the SP use reduction; Dragon Blaze uses a hefty 90 SP
normally.

  After demolishing Angue-Barl, it will bestow upon you its power in the form
of the [Flame Dragon Stone] and upgrade Mustafa's Extra skill. He can now use
"Catastrophe", which is a yet-stronger version of the Extra skill. However, on
return to Segram, Adol and company discover Cruxie has taken a turn for the
worse. The power of the Flame Dragon Stone is enough to keep her alive and
capable, but she cannot be too far from it. That is why she dresses herself in
full battle gear and offers to join Adol. Cruxie has all the skills Mustafa
has learned, and will now take his place in your party lineup. 

  You will be prompted to return to Ciarius to find out what he knows. While
you are there, show the researcher the Earth Stone and Fire Stone for some
progress in that quest. If you feel up to synthesizing any of the Elixirs, feel
free to do that too; the effects are enough to make it worthwhile. 


### Part Six C: The Wind Sanctum ##############################################

  With the Wind Cape, you can skip most of the annoying stroll through the
platforms of the Wind Precinct and get to the tower. The path to the Sanctum is
rather quick, but you will have a trek ahead of you once inside. The Wind
Sanctum is a bunch of rock paths connected by teleporters, and thus it can be
more straightforward than the Flame Sanctum in many ways. After a few paths in
the air, you will reach a place where wind gusts only sporadically lift you up.
You can use the dash (Square) to cross, quietly. Along  the bottom path is a
[Ruby], and you can see a chest and area on the upper path you can't quite
reach yet. Proceed onwards, and you will need to use the Wind Cape to float
between rocks. Along those floating boulders is a [Gravity Ring], but it is
time to go down to collect the other chest. Unequip the Wind Cape and fall,
then instead of taking the teleporter, fall off the rock you land on; you will
land right before the chest. It contains [Soft Hide x10]. Touch the switch to
open the crystal gate, then proceed back and you will reach the tower base.

  This is the second part of the Wind Sanctum, and it is a bit of a maze.
Continue through until you reach a large wind tunnel, then drop down to take
the teleporter. Go south from the destination to find [Withered Hardwood x20].
To the left another teleporter will take you to a switch; press it to lower
another crystal gate. Return to the wind tunnel and ride it to the top, then
turn south and use that teleporter. The switch visible from there will open the
last crystal gate and permit you to move further on. 

  This segment is a lot more gates and switches, but to start off you will head
west and trip that switch first. From there, find the next switch in the
sequence and turn it on; backtrack again to the first crystal gate you passed
and grab the [Striga Extract] in the chest. Fall off the broken path and you
can reach a platform full of material spots and a chest with [Withered Hardwood
x20] in it. Teleport back and climb to the top before falling off another
broken platform; down here is a switch you need to hit and a chest holding a
[Vitality Belt III]. Continue through to the next switch and climb back up to
the teleporter.

  The wind tunnels make a return in the next segment, and you need to take the
right-hand path first. In the chest here is the [Aerthas Staff] for Mishera.
Use the switch and proceed onwards. Take the left fork for some Ambula Fruit,
and then come back to the right for another switch. Climb the fan to the
platform and drop off; you will reach a platform with a few enemies and a
chest holding [30000 gold]. Return to the fork and take the middle path up two
levels. To the left is another switch, which nests in front of the next switch,
which will open the final crystal gate. Pass through and activate the stone
monument before backtracking and falling down the broken platform to the west;
it will lead to some Ambula plants and a chest with a [Maom Extract] in it. Use
the map to teleport back to the Abyss monument to proceed. 

  This part can be tricky, with the Wind Cape needing to  be employed
strategically so you can avoid both the bladed wind-wheels and land on the
platforms to plan your next move. You need to trip two switches along the path
to reach the next area, and two chests holding [Varl Incense] and [Dragon
Energy Drop]. You can drop off along the way to find various platforms below;
the second holds [Fossilized Twig x20], the third holds a [Blood Nail]. Beyond
that is a bird chariot statue. Climbing on board will start a boss battle with
Rio Farga.

  Rio Farga is not that difficult a mini-boss to take on, since it never moves
and the wind instead pushes you back. It will summon in help, but these can be
taken out just as easily as normally. Primarily focus on saving your Extra
skill for the Dragon and instead just fighting relentlessly while dodging the
tongue attacks. After defeating the insectoid titano, the chariot docks at the
final area of the Sanctum, where Adol can commune with the Wind Dragon Mu-Anti.
As before, Mu-Anti wants a trial by strength to determine if Adol is fit
enough to wield its power. 

  Mu-Anti is a handful because it will often take to the sky and only leave the
tailtip dangling to attack. Its primary attack is to whip the tail around and
use wind to inflict a panicked confusion on its foes. When you see the Rush
begin, it will emit a powerful razor-sharp wind which can hit multiple times
at high damage. Then it will dash forward and swallow anyone who had gotten
caught in the attack, causing poison and an ongoing minor attack. Dragon Blaze
can bring this Dragon down in a hurry, but so can Aerial Orb or Domination.
Pick your powerful skill of choice and get busy; once you exhaust your Extra
skill gauge, unload your skills for as long as you can. (You are using a Blue
Jewel or the Crimson Jewel right?) Once your SP is exhausted, either take a
Dragon Energy Drop or use Mishera at range to refill. If you are well-practiced
and have worked on your skills, Mu-Anti should go down fairly easily.

  Once Mu-Anti is defeated, you will be given the [Wind Dragon Stone] and 
Mishera will have her Extra skill increased in power. She will now use Wind
Legion as her Extra skill. With no clear clues on anything, all Adol's friends
can suggest is to take the three stones to show Ciarius and try to hope
something is now discovered. Instead of an answer from the sage, Geis' fairy
familiars appear and inform everyone of a dark fog which has encased Altago
City. Wishing to help out, Adol and company rush out to the aid of the city.  


### Part Seven: Return to Altago City #########################################

  First, the Dragon Knights have decamped from Altago Plains: West, so go there
and take the chest remaining. It holds a [Speed Orb], which increases movement
speed. Warp to the Shrine of Origins to make it to Altago City faster, and you
will find it indeed wrapped in the fog. Everyone splits up, as Adol and Dogi
go to look for Tia and Maya. You can enter the weapons shop, and pick up new
equipment if you need it. Once you travel into Old Town, you will need to
defend Maya from some monsters. Then you learn Tia has not been seen recently,
and that means searching the city for her.

  You can also come across your party members elsewhere in the city. Elk is
treating a wounded man in the house next to the item shop, and Cruxie is in
another house with more wounded and refugees. Geis is at the harbor, holding
off some new monsters who came from the sea and ruined the ships. After
fighting off the monsters, Geis joins Adol and Dogi to search for Tia. Mishera
is treating people in the church, while Sigroon is nowhere to be found.
Approaching the palace, Geis' faerie Jue comes with alarming news: there is a
man on a killing spree in the palace grounds. 

  Once you reach the throne room, you can confront the man responsible for the
death in the halls. Scias, the Altaginian Falcon, is a force of nature
currently who cannot be stopped. You can endure him for a while, but after a
point he becomes impossible to harm. After you lose, the architect behind the
Wind of Destruction appears and calls the deaths of Adol and his friends off.
After the shocking monologue which explains a bit about what was going on
behind the scenes, the enemies depart and leave Adol and Dogi to stew on just
what happened and how to proceed. You will need to return to Ruins Island and
travel to the Sea Sanctum with Aisha, in order to handle gaining the blessing
of the Sea Dragon.

  During this time, you can finalize purchases at the stores, and gather a
quest from a Segramite Warrior near the weapons shop. Wesley Irizarry wants a
measure of protection added to Altago, and hands Adol an [Ivory Ember Case] to
gather a part of the sacred flame from Segram. After retrieving it handily
enough, the torches are set up and Wesley is satisfied. His reward for your
dedication is a [Flash Ring III], which can be a very nice accessory for long
fights. After you are all set, go to the harbor and find your small ship
waiting. It's time to move on to the Sea Sanctum.

### Part Eight: The Sea Sanctum ###############################################


  Once you land on Ruins Island, it's a matter of backtracking to the altar
through the paths you opened up the last time you visited. Once you enter the
Edona Ruins, turn left and go up the lift. Then go left, and down to the
ladder. If you left any of the chests containing recovery goods, you can
acquire them now. Inside the Altar Room, Aisha reads the incantation and
teleports the party into the Sea Sanctum.

  Once inside, climb the walkways to the right and take a turn south to find a
chest on a platform which contains a [Striga Extract]. From there head right
and trigger a floor switch, melting ice so you can reach [Fossilized Twig x20].
Go further to the left, and turn south to trigger another floor switch; this
melts more ice for you to proceed. A note about the icy floors - they can be a
real pain to fight on unless you stand in one spot and attack at range.
Luckily, the monsters in some of these rooms are weak to Pierce, so Aisha is
very useful. Along the next path is an icy platform which has [Fossilized
Twig x20] on it, and a camoflagued Rapletika who can be hard to see against
the ice. Proceed with caution into the next area, as it is an icy walkway with
no stops on the side in case you start sliding too fast. Across another icy
path is a [Maom Extract], if you have room for it. Up the next flight of
stairs you can cross to the left and find a spring where Spiritual Water can
be found. On the other side to the right, you will find [Varl Incense]. Touch
the stone monument at the next staircase, and slide to the left towards the
bend in the icy path; just a bit past that is a chest holding [Sid-Rondo], a
polearm for Geis. Climbing back up, you can find the stairs there are iced
over and unclimbable; heading up from the stone monument you can find a [Dragon
Energy Drop] in case you need it. 

  The next area is a massive maze of walkways and platforms, with water thrown
in for good measure. Head to the right and find the floor switch which
activates a bridge for you; after you finish that you can head to the southwest
corner platforms and find some [Dalmatica] for your light armored characters.
Retracing your steps around and to the northwest platforms will earn you
[Monster Horn x20]. Heading to the north-center of the area will allow you to
open another sluice-bridge and reveal the way to Aisha's [Albatross] weapon.
Work to the central-east underwater passages to reach a floor switch for
another sluice, opening another area to the south. There is a [Flash Ring II]
there for the taking. Walk your way to the eastern paths and you can find
another switch for the north sluice gate, which will allow you to reach an
[Ice Ring] on the lower level. To the north across the gate you can find a
chest with [Thin Hide x20] for the taking. Exit to the southwest, having to
backtrack along the walls.

  The next area has more caverns with ice, and you should fall down to claim
[Monster Claw x20] before being serious about crossing. Crossing carefully
allows you to net a [Chaos Shield] from the chest. Up the stairs, you can cross
another ice bridge with care to grab [Chaos Armor]. The ice bridges only become
more treacherous, so avoid the lure of the chest on its own platform to keep
climbing. You can grab a chest with a nice [Vitality Crown] on the way up, but
the real prize is the [Steel Hooks] which give you traction on ice. Once you
have that, use a dash to get to the [Chaos Sword] and begin immediately working
on its skill. Pentagram is such a highly useful skill, it is worth having to
call on at will.

  With the Ice Hooks, you can now climb the slippery stairs; remember to put on
the Grattheos Talisman before you proceed into the underwater area, however.
Mind the tiles which flash, since they are damage zones, and meet some new
swordfish enemies called Spielkri. They're good practice for Adol, however.
Heading completely to the east, a floor switch shuts off some of the damage
panels. Poking around to the northeast yields a [Rare-Scale] armor, suitable
medium armor for your party now. Along the northern path you can dash-jump
across a gap to a path full of damage panels. It's worth the pain, as the
chest at the end contains [Training Ring III]. 

  The next segment can drop you through water pools into the lower level, so be
sure of your footing as you move across. You can grab a [Striga Extract] in a
safe pool and with some careful walking you can reach a [Great Arm] for Dogi.
After that, you enter a long spiraling staircase which ends at a stone
monument. The Sea Dragon awaits, and as three times before, you need to defeat
the dragon to earn its power.

  O-Balon the Sea Dragon fights entirely underwater, and pops out from the
holes in the wall during battle. It will cruise leisurely around in circles to
one of the other holes, and show easily a dozen targets along its long body.
These targets are what you have to attack. O-Balon has a few attacks, but most
notably its body is electrified, so standing next to it too long will result in
a hit against you. Another favorite attack is to swim in a circle in the main
room and start a maelstrom which will suck you in while pulses of electricity
home in on you. After you destroy all the targets along the length of the Sea
Dragon, it will close the two largest cave openings and begin fighting from the
wall. Alternatively it will flood the arena or cause the floor to freeze. This
segment of the fight is easier on you, if you're good at dodging the quick
motions. Once it gets low enough on health, it will very quickly dart its head
in and out of holes until it lunges through. During this time, small but tough
monsters ill come out to soak up attention. Adol's Pentagram skill, or
Cruxie's Dragon Blaze both can do serious damage to the latter form; Aisha's
Cataract Blue is good for handling the multiple targets in the first section.
It's important not to unleash an Extra skill unless you can hit with most of
it. 

  (A special note here, there are monsters which are summoned during this
battle which are unique to it. If you are shooting for a full bestiary, do
not miss out on killing these monsters! They are called Seah Damlin.)

  Once Adol defeats O-Balon, the Sea Dragon will bestow upon him the [Sea
Dragon's Stone] and give Aisha its blessing. Aisha's Extra skill is upgraded
to Azure Destruction and you are finished here. 


### Part Nine: Moon Dragon's Call #############################################


  Back in Altago City, things are no better than before. Ciarius has left to
return to the hidden Iska Village as something has begun happening there with
the monument in the center of town. Once you travel to Iska, take a moment to
peer into the shop and refill your recovery items. Buy weapons or armor as you
wish, but be aware the end of the game is getting very close and one more set
of equipment is due to arrive. 

  At the pillar of light, Ciarius will explain how it was the original Moon
Altar, but without the incantation the Sanctum is still inaccessable. Return
to Altago City to search Tia's belongings, and you will find her hairpin
resting on the table. It is also glowing faintly; taking it to the Moon Altar
will open the way to the Sanctum of the Moon Dragon Ze-Kalion. As four times
before, Adol must now prove his strength to the Dragon for its blessing.

  This battle is a little deceptive. Ze-Kalion starts off rather unassuming,
and will conjure attacks with its wings; it will toss a whirlwind forwards,
lunge in a quick dash across the arena, or just spin and swipe the area
before it. After some damage is done, it will add another attack; the Moon
Dragon summons two orbs which sweep a pair of beams from the sides to forward.
A little bit after that, Ze-Kalion will melt into the floor and transform
into a large and brutish form; the only place to harm it is at the tail. Most
of its attacks now will cause shockwaves and cause the party to flounder for
footing. After a set amount of damage, the tail ceases to be the target and
a jewel appears on the Moon Dragon's forehead. Ze-Kalion now has its weak
spot right where it has the greatest amount of attack presence, which means
you need to approach it a bit more carefully.

  Pentagram, Sword Dance, Dragon Blaze, and various other skills are all fine
to attack with, primarily Pentagram and Dragon Blaze. Pentagram charges the
Extra gauge quite well and Dragon Blaze deals a lot of damage in exchange for
a lot of SP. Catastrophe will be an amazing damage-dealer if you can line it
up properly. Lunar Crystal Blade is also very nice if you can get Adol
directly facing the target area. By now, you have probably found other skills
which you like; feel free to use them. Scud Sword can be useful if aimed
well, Photon Blade can dish out some quick damage, Cross Crusher and Straight
Right both handle well . . . the list goes on. 

  After defeating the Moon Dragon, Adol's Extra skill reaches full strength
as the Lunar Dragon Blade, and he is bestowed the [Moon Dragon Stone].
Finally, all five Dragon Stones are gathered . . . but where to go with
them?

### Part Ten: Well of Souls ###################################################

  The Well of Souls opens, and Adol must go within to stop the Wind of
Destruction. The shop at Iska Village now can synthesize powerful weapons and
armor if you can get enough materials from the Well of Souls; the purchased
equipment is not as good, but it can help keep you alive. You will also be
told about weaponry which can be created from the Dragon Stones, all of which
are well worth getting for the characters you plan on using. Adol's Caliocerion
is easily worth the work, but it entails a lot of searching for materials.
Also, as soon as you find a single Moon Stone (it will not take long), you can
finish the last Lecture quest in Iska; the reward is a [Black Talisman], which
can nullify enemy damage some of the time. This can be a very useful piece of
equipment, but I'm not sure how well it measures up against other accessories.
Likewise, once you start gathering Holy Water, it becomes likely you can clear
the "Spirit Elixir Concoction" quest. The reward for doing so is an [Energy
Charm], which fills the Extra Gauge faster; this can make the final battle a
lot easier.

  Into the Well of Souls, you will find it a long stone pathway which has very
strong monsters along it. Take the path to the southwest (using the Grattheos
Talisman) to find some Maom plants and [Striga Extract]. Since this dead-ends,
backtrack a ways to the northwest corner of the previous area; you can find a
chest holding [Moon Stone x20] and an exit. The room looks like nothing is
there, but the seal on the wall will open for the Moonlight Bell; beyond Adol
and company will look out over an old ruined city.

  The city itself is a sprawling affair, and there are beam traps rotating
which can chew through you rather easily if you aren't paying attention. Take
the first turn north and gently move through the traps; at the end you will
find a [White Talisman] and a switch in the floor to turn off the traps you
just traversed. From there, continue west and take the trip north for a
[Dragon Energy Drop], before heading fully west and getting past more traps.
The switch will now turn off the rest of the traps, as well as cause an Iskan
seal to appear on the floor. Ringing the Moonlight Bell will drop the party
down into another area.

  Here the main attraction is a crystal puzzle where you will need to move the
light beam to open barriers. This is not that hard, but it can be time
consuming to line the crystal beams up. First open the southwest barrier for
the [Dueler] weapon. Open the north gate for [Sylard], [Stompy], and the
[Volos Staff]. You can open the eastern gate with some work to make stairs
appear along the eastern path, before opening the southern gates. Through the
southern gates you can find [Lunar Carapace] and [Hyper Cutter], both of which
are very nice weapons. Backtrack to where you made the stairs appear and
proceed to the next section. This area is very simple, and full of enemies;
cut through them and make it to the next exit to the east. Use the stone
monument to mark your map, and take a moment to be sure you are ready. If you
desire, you can return to Iska to hand off the Moon Stone to the researcher. 

  Ahead is an arena where two Dragg Leth, the "Souls of the Fallen", attack.
These two together are dangerous, since they have a very high damage output
and have a habit of cornering a single person between them and beating them
into death. Being very mobile, slow attacks simply are not good enough to keep
up. Pentagram and Dragon Blaze both can be great, but they will also drain SP
rapidly. The Dragg Leth both have enormous pools of HP, so this could take a
while to whittle through.

  Once through, you enter caverns again; equip the Grattheos Talisman and run
into the north of the watery area to find a chest holding [Soul Stone x20].
Down the path to the south nearby is a chest with [Titano Bone x20]; the
collection of both these chests should put your Dragon Stone weapons closer
to reach. Put on your Diamond Boots and trek east along the path with spikes
until you come outside. Smack the block teetering on the edge here, and it
will fall down and create a bridge. Grab the chest past it with a [Striga
Extract] inside, then fall down. You can cross the bridge to proceed; stay out
of the windy areas, since it will damage you constantly. Inside the caverns,
you can find lots of spots to gather Moon Stones and Soul Stones, as well as a
chest with [Titano Spine x10] inside. Continue outside, and you will pass into
another cavern with an Iskan seal on the wall; ring the Moonlight Bell and
collect the chest with the [Moon Talisman] inside. Use the bell again to the
left, and you will manifest stairs so you can shortcut through next time. 

  Backtrack to before the cave passage, and you can travel along the west and
south path to reach a [Heavy Belt] while using the Moon Talisman. After that
is done, return to the place just before you found the Moon Talisman, and
proceed along the windy paths. Take a sidetrip along the southern wall into an
underwater cavern where you can find [Hard Hide x30] and a [Clone Statue]. A
quick word about the Clone Statue; it is an instant life restoration if you
die while holding it, but it is gone after. Once you finish with that, it's
time to carefully work your way west around the water pits; fall once and you
return to the underwater cavern. 

  Beyond the door, you enter a new cavern in the lower Well of Souls. Head
north to find a spring (though it only yields Cloudy Water), and a chest with
[Soft Hide x30]. Fighting through the tough Adolpha titanos, you can reach a
[Varl Incense] and a [Maom Extract] before the exit. The next chamber is a
broad cavern with many rocky platforms at differing heights. You can find two
chests each with a [Striga Extract] along the way, and a chest near the end
holds an [Alp Extract]. After that, you have reached the bottom of the Well
of Souls, and you had best turn back now if you have doubts about your armor
or weapons. Especially armor, since these are the final fights of the game.

  Scias awaits, and the Knight of Despair is eager to fight. His attacks are
almost the same as they were when you fought him before, except faster. And
with more effort into your equipment and level, he is not as unbeatable as
before. Be very careful of his energy slash, since he can create shadow-clones
and deliver up to three strikes at varying angles. When he jumps into the air
and vanishes, start running around and dodging because he will drop out of
the sky and create a large vortex of energy which can deal heavy damage.
Pentagram, Dragon Blaze, and Extra skills will help you out; know that Elk's
Extra skill is a temporary invincibilty shield which will absorb damage and it
can be dropped on all allies close to him.  

  After Scias is defeated, you have one last chance to turn back, and the
party lets you know this. Tialuna awaits, as the Maiden of Demise, and she is
every bit as powerful as you were warned. She has two stone allies to begin,
which will make the fight much harder if you leave them alone. Take them out
first, and avoid Tialuna's spells as much as you can. Primarily, if you can
avoid being beaten around by the magic you should do fine with the battle.

  After Tialuna is defeated, Rul-Ende shows itself. The Root of All Existence
is moving towards the total destruction of Altago. Adol's company is now
split off into three groups. Dogi, Elk, and Mishera are one group, and the
first up. Second up is Geis, Cruxie, and Aisha. Lastly Adol is left alone for
his fight. 


### Final Battle: Rul-Ende ####################################################


  The first section has Dogi and friends having to beat up four dragon heads
in order to reach the real target. The heads are vulnerable only for a short
time, and have a lot of health to chew through. Use skills as much as you can,
and use Flash Guard to help fuel your power. As you deal more damage, more of
the heads will get into the act dropping attacks. The varied attacks are: a
fire-bomb which covers a large area and can deal continual damage, a tracking
pulse of ice which may freeze you, a blast of four fireballs, and a fire
breath which sweeps around the arena, but will not hit directly infront of
Rul-Ende. When the Rush marker appears, it is highly imperative you save an
Extra skill to hit it then so you can avoid a meteor storm which will deal
heavy damage. After a long fight, the focus now shifts to the next section up. 

  Geis' group will have a better time, as the target is always vulnerable. Two
arms will run interference by placing hazards on the battlefield. The most
dangerous ones are two massive flame pillars which swirl and track your party,
and two energy discs which orbit the field. However, you should be able to
handle this easily enough; if you did not blow all your healing goods on the
lower section, this will not be nearly as bad. This section of Rul-Ende will
use its claws to attack mostly, summoning tracking flames and spitting weaker
energy pulses which track. Aisha's ranged attack can really shine here, since
she can build SP and unleash Cataract Blue (if you have it) or allow Cruxie to
drop Dragon Blaze (again, if you have it), or even to let Geis go with a Cross
Crusher. When the Extra gauge is full, use Cruxie to deal a huge chunk of
damage to Rul-Ende. After a third of the health is gone, the mouth will scream
and try to suck in everyone. Dash away as fast as you can to avoid being
swallowed, then resume. After it is down to a third, a new attack appears
where the boss will throw down lighting barriers with a small opening for you
to thread through. Try to avoid being caught for much damage in this attack.

  The last section is all Adol, and it's not terribly difficult compared to
the others. Adol has to take down four targets around the outside of the
floor, and each one can take a large amount of punishment. The center body
will throw all sorts of attacks at Adol, all of which can be dodged if you
keep moving. The two troublesome ones are when the outer targets use beams to
track Adol's location and fire energy, and when the center body sets up four
dividing pillars of flame and rotates swiftly. You can outdash the pillars of
flame, until the attack stops, and you can avoid being caught by the beams by
moving very carefully. Once you destroy the four targets, and phase two
begins, Rul-Ende will become vulnerable. He will lay down a sectioned grid on
the ground; when he focuses his energy he can turn some sections into a damage
zone. He can move to the edge of the floor, and retains some of his attacks
from before. Be careful not to be caught in his massive beam attack, as it
will easily shave off health. Every time he moves, Adol will flinch and you'll
need to be extra cautious for his attacks once he reappears; there will be
little time to dodge. 

  After Adol defeats the final section of Rul-Ende . . . the nightmare is
over. Enjoy the hard-earned ending!

#-# 4. Optional Bosses #------------------------------------------------------#


  You can fight three massive titanos in Altago, none of which are required to
beat the game. However, you will find their rewards worth attaining once you
have the power to take them on. 


Bal Kilios, the One-Horned Beast
Location: Altago Plains

  You can wander into this guy's clearing easily and early. This guy serves as
the usual Ys series reminder to not wander recklessly into new areas without
healthy respect for what may lurk there. He's also the easiest of the three
optional titano bosses. His attacks can do massive damage to lower-level
characters but when you get some decent weapons and armor you can consider
fighting the beast. Patience and skill are the words of the day here; Bal
Kilios does not have very many quick attacks, and he telegraphs them all
rather well. His stomp is a common attack, and can cover a large area with a
damaging shockwave; stay clear when he lifts a leg to stomp. He can smash with
his tail or slash with his horn; for either one, staying out of the rear or
front arcs (respectively) is enough. If you are using Aisha to use ranged
attacks to avoid him, he will throw a fireball at your feet for trying it.
The warm-up time on the fire ball is so long, you can get away easily. Adol's
Sword Dance is an excellent skill to bring to the fight, as is Aisha's Killer
Hornet. Don't be afraid to use Lunar Blade, since you will be landing many
skill hits.

  When he is defeated, you can claim the [Dragon Orb] which will allow resting
in areas which normally do not allow it. This is an interesting prize, but
useful.


Soldi Orm, Sand Eater
Location: Flame Shrine: Outside

  You passed this titano on the way into the Flame Shrine, and you were warned
to run rather than fight. The toughest of the optional bosses, Soldi Orm is
difficult to predict up until he makes his move. He can spit three fireballs in
a spread, or generate a pit of quicksand in front of him, or just swipe in a
circle around him. All of these attacks have very little telegraph, but it is
enough to use the dodge to roll out of the way. It is not a terribly difficult
fight, but it can wreck you if you are not paying close enough attention. If
you can do consistent damage, you can take Soldi Orm down rather easily.

  Killing Soldi Orm earns you Dogi's Level 3 Extra Skill: "Ultimate Strike".
In the event you kill it before you finish the scene with the Sea Altar, you
cannot use it until you have finished the Coliseum fight. 


Mili Urdu, the Earth Creature
Location: Segram Desert

  A big sign reads "Keep out!" before you enter this canyon clearing, and most
of you readers understood when Ys says such things to you it is well-meant.
When you can take Mili Urdu, go for the tail to damage it best. Mili Urdu's
attacks are a charge which can drag along the walls and still damage, and a
swirl of the body in a huge circle. Avoid being hit with either, since they
are easy enough to avoid. The trouble is the sheer length of a fight without
your party being exceedingly overbuilt. Mustafa and Sigroon are both useful
allies here, to help you get the most bang out of an Extra Skill release.
Dragon Blaze is an amazingly powerful skill to unleash on Mili Urdu, and if
you hold off until after the Flame Shrine, Catastrophe is a completely
devastating attack if you can line it up properly. Don't be afraid to use your
recovery items, since that is their purpose. If you have to burn them all up,
however, it might be best to try to get a few levels before trying again. 

  Defeating Mili Urdu will upgrade Geis' Extra Skill to its third stage: Fairy
Annhiliation. Again, if you have not yet gone to and returned from Ruins
Island, this skill will not be unlocked until after the Coliseum.

  Entries after this point are spoiler material, and I do not have information
on them at this time. There are seven entries but the last three are for the
three phases of the final boss. One is a summoned enemy in the battle against
the Maiden of Despair, but by that point it is not likely you shall have any
chance to really gander at your journal to look it up.

#-# 8. Final Remarks #--------------------------------------------------------#


  I hope you enjoyed Ys Seven, and I hope you check out other Ys games in the
future. If you have already played some Ys games, then I hope you enjoyed them
too! For now, this guide is under construction as I fish out more information
to fill out the journal. I hope to have it completed sometime before I turn
30, so keep an eye out. In the meantime the walkthrough is there for your help. 

  If you want to send me information to help correct wrong assumptions I made
or errors in data, please email me through GameFAQs' system. Put "Ys Seven
Walkthrough" in the subject line, and I will read it. If you send me spam
mail, I'll be annoyed enough to stop being helpful. Please be serious if you
contact me, and be nice; I'll respond in kind.

  And if you need to ask what my next project is, I'll be honest: it's trying
to finish Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. I'm still a long way off.

  A couple people have mailed me about some clarifications so I will answer
those here: 

  "Kein" pointed out it is possible to reach the chest in the Ancient Tree
which normally requires the Grattheos Talisman to breathe in water. As the
method requires a lot of close timing and is very susceptible to not working
. . . I didn't think it worth mentioning in the original draft of the FAQ.
A video found here can show you just how to do this extreme sequence-break:

  "Ahiru-Sama" took some time to point out the maximum Skill Level is 10 and
it is rather easily reached when you have a Training Ring, as opposed to
one to cut SP use. The math he provided is simple and easy to follow; I am
a little chagrined I didn't think of it first:

  Running Slash uses 10 SP normally
  At higher levels, each use is 1 experience point.
  You get a maximum of 100 SP, meaning you get 10 uses normally.
  A Training Ring III grants you 4 experience per use, so a full bar will
allow you to earn 40 experience.
  A Crimson Jewel reduces the SP use to 5 SP per activation, but you
will only get 20 uses at 1 experience per use. 

  Thus you are only earning half as much. Granted, having an item to cut SP use
originally allows you to learn a skill rather quickly and thus switch to a
stronger weapon or one which is more favorable (for Adol, who gets a choice). 

  I recently (December 2010) added updated information for the bestiary and the
full Synthesis Listing. Furthermore, I added basic lists on the skills
available to each character. Hopefully I can finish up the bestiary soon, and
flesh out the skill information.

  Peace, love, and best wishes!
