1.Introduction

Hello, and welcome to my guide for Legend of Oasis, the prequel to the sega 
genesis game Beyond Oasis.  Here, you will be able to fully explore the island 
of Oasis.  You will be able to defeat every enemy, find every item, discover 
every secret, awake every spirit and defeat the 3 silver guardians and the god, 
Agito.

2.Basics

Leon is quite easy to manage.  He will walk in any of the directions you 
press on the D-pad.  He will run when a certain direction is tapped twice and 
held on the second tap.  He will use his current weapon when you press the B 
button.  He will jump with the C button.  Crouch with R.  Throw bombs with Y 
and change weapons with Z.  The A and X buttons are for use with your 
spirits.  As you awake them, you'll have many more uses with those buttons.  
More detail on that later.

3.Status

This game is an RPG(Role Playing Game).  Leon's health and spirit power are 
measured by hit points(HP) and Spirit Points(SP) respectfully.  Leon starts 
the game at 100 points of health, as noted by the small red bar of health at 
the top of the screen within a much larger energy bar.  Your health can be 
increased as you Rank Up.  With each Rank Up, you gain 2 points of health and 
your rank increases by one.  You start the game at rank 0.  You gain a Rank 
Up by obtaining a certain number of recovery points, which are awarded when 
you reach full health.  When you have enough, you receive a Rank Up.  Thus, 
keeping a low rank is very difficult if you wish to have a great rating at 
the end of the game.  Your health bar will very slowly get larger as ranks 
increase, up to the length of the energy bar at the top of the screen.  
Health can be recovered by standing in a magic circle(purple), a health 
circle(red), healing cast by Dytto, using additional potions found or 
meat/cheese items found in bushes, treasure boxes or dropped from enemies.

As you travel for your first spirit, you'll run across Reharl statues.  The 
first one will grant you Spirit Power for your golden armlet.  You can use 
this power on all his statues for guidance throughout the game.  The large 
statue of Reharl found on the way to Efreet's shrine will help you accomplish 
the next part of the story if you ever get lost or don't know what to 
do/where to go.  You will receive 100 points of Spirit Power to start and as 
you awake each spirit(15 points) and recover gems(5 points), your spirit 
power will greatly increase.  Spirit Points can be recovered by standing in a 
magic circle(purple), a spirit circle(blue), using additional potions found 
or picking up fruit items found in bushes, treasure boxes or from enemies.

(Note: This guide was made while playing through the game, so directions may 
seem too literal.  If somehow you get mislead by my directions, go through 
the game yourself, familiarize yourself with the surroundings and see where 
in the guide I mention them.  I provide many details of all areas, so just 
look for something in the game that I mention here to get your bearings.)

5.The Walkthrough

The game begins with a brief lecture by your teacher, Ordan, and he then 
sends you off to befriend Dytto, the water spirit of the golden armlet.  Head 
outside and familiarize yourself with the town Aquaria.  Talk to the people.  
Learn the controls.  When you're ready to proceed, head down the staircase at 
the center of town.  You notice a white glowing panel below it.  This is a 
save point.  Stand on these and press A or C to bring up the save screen and 
select a slot to save your game in the system's memory or a memory card.  On 
the next screen, head to the left, hit the switch to open the door and head 
inside.  You'll be given a note of where you are.  You are now in the water 
shrine, ready to begin your adventure with spirit one: Dytto.

A.The Water Shrine
Here sleeps "Dytto, the Water Spirit." Water Shrine

Head up the screen, then to the right, you'll see a pond with some grass 
growing within.  You can destroy them with your weapon to reveal items to 
help with your quest.  Proceed to the right, head up the stairs and push the 
boulder to the north and jump up to the next level.  To the right, hit the 
switch to activate the platform.  Ride it over to a chest containing a Giant 
Ginger, which will make Leon grow twice his current size.  This can make him 
jump higher, move faster and attack and defend stronger.  It lasts for a few 
seconds.  To the far left of the giant ginger you can find an item called 
Tiny Thyme, which will shrink Leon to half his size, also halving his speed, 
jump and strength.  Go back to the moving platform, go to the level it's 
floating over, go to the right, then south down the stairs.

If you stay on this level and head north, you'll find a sign that reads "Look 
out above!!" and four caverats will fall and fight.  Defeat them if you wish.  
To the left are more caverats.  You spot 4 stone pillars that lead to a large 
chest above.  To get it, head to the south into the river on the bottom 
level.  Go to the left, then head north.  You'll come across some more 
caverats as they wash down the steps.  A boulder will also follow.  You may 
use it as a step up to the obelisk on the island to read about a special move 
you can perform.  Continue to the north, you'll find another giant ginger on 
your left, get it if you want.  To the right, you can jump on the stone 
pillars and reach the chest(push the iron vase down to the lower level in 
case you fall while jumping from pillar to pillar).  Open it to reveal a 
short bow, level 1.  Press the Z button to cycle through all your weapons and 
select with Z.  You have infinite shots, you can shoot straight with B or 
hold B and aim towards the sky by pressing the opposite aiming direction Leon 
is facing.

Head back across and continue to the right.  A soldier will spot you and 
shout, initiating a fight.  Defeat him and the door below will open.  Head in 
and you can either hit the switch to activate the platforms and ride them to 
the lower right bush on the next level to activate the switch within, or use 
your new bow to aim and open the bush and flip the switch with the bow.  You 
can also jump and kick it if you wish.  Through the door, you notice a switch 
to the left.  It only closes the door you came through, so no need to touch 
it.  Go to the right, avoid or fight any of the fish and/or bubble monsters, 
and onto the next level.  The obelisk will tell you arrows can reach places 
you cannot.  To the right, you can use an arrow to flip the switch behind 
some fire.  Aim well, the fire can destroy your arrows.  The door to your 
left will open, but beyond the fire and up the stairs you can find a health 
potion.  Take it along if you wish and proceed through the door.

You'll meet one of the 3 silver guardians of Agito, Red Demon, and he will 
disappear, leaving Maneek to defeat you.  Continue to the north, you'll find 
an obelisk that will tell you of the purple circle you see just ahead.  This 
is a magic circle, which will recover your health and spirit power when 
standing in it.  A red panel will only recover your health.  A blue panel 
will only recover your spirit power.  Go to the Reharl statue ahead and it 
will give you power to your golden armlet.  You can now cast a blue ray or 
ball of light from the armlet with A.  You can use this to communicate with 
the statues for guidance or to summon spirits.  Hit the statue with the ball 
of light and it will tell you of a new evil about to enter Oasis.  As the 
Spirit King, it is your job to restore peace.  Go up the stairs, use the save 
circle and go through the door which will open for you(unless you didn't talk 
with Reharl).

You will fight Maneek, a giant green blob monster.  It will fall and hit the 
water, causing a splash through the area.  Jump over and begin hitting Maneek 
with your dagger and kick him to inflict good damage.  He will also spit 
fireballs at you.  He will also chase you.  Defeat Maneek and proceed through 
the door to the north.  You have now awoken Dytto, the spirit of water.  She 
can be summoned from any form of water.  A gold obelisk will appear and give 
controls.

Controls:
Bubble Bazooka - Press the A button once
Dytto will send out 5 magic water bubbles in Leon's facing direction.  It can 
freeze enemies and water and put out fire.
Healing Field - Press the A button twice rapidly
Dytto will cast a healing force around herself, anything in the vicinity will 
be healed: Leon, other people, and plants.
Magic Vortex - Hold the A button until the blue eye of the armlet is 
flashing, then release
Dytto will become a water tornado and begin tearing up the area wherever Leon 
is, attacking enemies.  Helpful for crowded conditions.
No button actions: Dytto will cast a healing spell directly to Leon when his 
health gets low(when the heart begins to flash).  She will also send out one 
bubble at an enemy when nearby and freeze it.  Very useful.

With all spirits, to cancel their summon, press the X button twice rapidly.

With all spirits, your spirit power will raise by 15 points.

(In this current room, the two torches beside the obelisk can be doused and 
you will refight the boss for this shrine.  This can be done at any spirit's 
resting place)

As you leave Dytto's room, you can begin using Dytto and her skills and 
seeing what she can do and to fully master her abilities.  Go to the lower 
right, take out your bow and destroy the most southern bush on the next level 
to reveal a switch.  Activate the switch and a platform will appear that will 
let you onto that level.  Go through the doorway and you'll find a complete 
golden chest.  This is your first scroll, and all other scrolls can be found 
in complete golden chests.  This is the Scroll of Sound for the bow.  When it 
is powered with the correct spell, it can be used as the arrow of piercing to 
go through metal.  Go back through the door and destroy the other bush, 
you'll reveal a yellow Power Ball.  Step through with the bow equipped and 
your weapon will be powered.  With each scroll you have, you will have 3 uses 
for that power.  Summon Dytto and have her freeze a water spout to the left 
when it is not overflowing(crouch with R, Dytto will lower too).  Use it to 
climb to the next level.  Go north and use the arrow of piercing to hit the 
switch on the other side of the iron pillars.  They will lower and you'll get 
another scroll of sound.  Head to the entrance of the room and have Dytto put 
out the fire with her bubbles.

Head back out of the shrine, extinguishing fires as they appear with Dytto.  
As you head out, the chest with the bow has been replaced with a blue circle 
for restoring your spirit power.  Head back into your town and talk with 
Ordan.  Then, an earthquake will happen.  Talk with Ordan again and he will 
send you off to the Fire Shrine to befriend Efreet, the spirit of fire.  His 
shrine is located northeast of the town.  Head back to the center of town, 
down the stairs and head south.  Talk to the gatekeeper and he'll open the 
gate for you.  You'll find a purple circle as you leave.  Recover any 
health/spirit power and follow the path.  As you travel right, you'll find a 
black and gold chest on a high island.  You can jump to it from the platform 
next to it.  These chests contain keys and gems.  This is your first gem for 
Dytto, a blue gem called Aquamarine.  Continue to the right.  Follow the 
path, heading north.  You'll feel another earthquake and notice some more 
black/gold chests.  You can't get them yet.  Continue the path to the north 
and eventually you'll come across a sign next to the entrance to the Fire 
Shrine.

B.The Fire Shrine
Here sleeps "Efreet, the Fire Spirit." Fire Shrine

Don't head in through the entrance.  Instead, go to the left and head up 
north around the pit.  Go all the way up until you can't anymore, then go 
right and fall into the pit.  You'll enter Efreet's Shrine and you'll appear 
next to a big red chest.  Open it to receive the Blue Rod, level 1.  Drop 
down to the lower level and summon Dytto.  Have her freeze the small water 
spout and use to jump to the next level.  Head down and you'll spot a chest 
blocked by a wall.  There's a hidden hole in the wall, crouch(with R) and 
crawl through to get it.  It's a blue magic potion, it will replace your 
current potion whatever it is, so decide whether it is worth getting.  Jump 
across to the right from the potion to step on the switch to remove the lower 
door.  Head back across and go back to the level with all the water spouts.  
Head down, up the stairs to the left of the original entrance and you can 
break open the boulder by pushing it over the ledge.  Many great healing 
items will spring from it.  Collect them and go right.  You can stand on the 
rock ledge or push the iron ball over to the higher platform to the left and 
get on.  You'll find a tree trunk with a black chest on it.  Use the rod as a 
battering ram by pressing forward, backward and forward again(of Leon's 
facing direction) when pressing B to destroy the trunk and get the chest.  
Another Dytto gem.  Head down the stairs to the north through the door you 
just opened.

You find three soldiers all equipped with bombs.  Defeat them and go through 
the hallway on the left.  Fire will block the passageway as you go through.  
You'll find 3 skeletons that will come to life and attack.  Kill them and the 
door below will open.  Go right to the blue circle, recover any spirit 
points.  Continue right and you'll find a soldier on a level below you.  Drop 
to that level and you'll fight some enemies and a large skeleton.  Don't get 
the chest, it's a Tiny Thyme which will shrink Leon.  Kill the enemies and 
ride the platform below across to another level.  Have Dytto put out the fire 
and pick up the key.  Go left and you'll fight some more skeletons from the 
sky.  Head through the door(ignore the boulder you see).  Down here, go left 
down the stairs and fight more skeletons.  Destroy the tree trunks to get the 
iron ball and use it to get to the next level to the left.  Go up the stairs 
and run and jump across the gap to the north to find a black chest.  This 
turns out to be a monster, these can be very hard monsters to fight and kill, 
so be careful.  After it's defeated.  Destroy the trunk and reveal a true 
black chest.  Get the key, then head back to where you entered.  Go right and 
have Dytto extinguish the torch next to the door.  It will open.  To the 
south, there are some skeletons.  On your left is a pillar that will rise 
when you are near or on it.  You can destroy the trunk for health if you 
want.  Go to the right, then head up.  Extinguish the fire and you'll fight 
some soldiers.  When they're defeated, a blue circle will appear.  Extinguish 
the flames to the left and save your game on the white circle.  Proceed 
through the door.

You'll fight OgreTank.  Begin to jump kick it when battle begins.  It will 
send out flame enemies at you and will spin around shooting flames.  When it 
is lowered to the ground, it will travel around very fast trying to knock you 
out.  Continue to fight and it'll eventually explode.  Go through the door to 
the north and awaken Efreet, the spirit of fire.  He can be summoned from any 
fire.  A gold obelisk will appear and you can read the controls if you want.

Controls:
Flame Breath - Press the A button once
Efreet will breathe a strong breath of fire from wherever he is according to 
Leon's facing direction.  Can be used to start fire, melt ice, attack enemies 
and destroy any form of tree trunk.
Dash Attack - Press the A button twice rapidly
Efreet will become a fireball and dash very quickly in Leon's facing 
direction, destroying anything in its path.
Fire Storm - Hold the A button until the blue eye of the armlet is flashing, 
then release
Efreet will grow and release large blasts of fire all around him, engulfing 
the area with flames for a few seconds.
No button actions: When heading into an enemy, Efreet will automatically 
punch him with a fiery fist, causing good damage.

Head out of the shrine, using Efreet to destroy the ice spout, then wait for 
it to lower.  Also have Efreet fireball attack through all the dead tree 
trunks in the passageway on the next level.  Upon leaving the shrine, you'll 
run into Chucky, the gatekeeper to the town and inform you everyone is 
passing out.  Head back to town.  On the way, you'll see that black chest on 
the dead tree trunk.  Use Efreet to destroy it and pick up Efreet's first 
gem, a red gem called a Ruby.  Head into town, you'll find everyone sick.  
You can use Dytto's healing power over them to heal them and talk with them.  
At the top of town, you'll find a girl with black hair who is ill.  Talk with 
Ordan and he will want you to help and save her.  Head outside and you'll be 
informed she is resting at another's house.  Go back to Ordan and he'll send 
you off to the Shrine of Earth to awaken Bawu.  Go one screen north of the 
large Reharl statue and begin traveling west.  Soon, you'll enter the Forest 
of Earth.

C.Forest of Earth
The place where "Bawu, the Spirit of Earth" lies. Forest of Earth

This place is a large maze, it is difficult to navigate through and you can 
get lost easily.  Just keep your cool and you'll be fine.  While going 
through here, do NOT fall in the river.  If you do, look alongside the right 
for an area to jump back onto land.  The river leads back to town/Aquaria.  
Head up and around to the left to get on the higher levels, then go south to 
the next screen.  You'll find some more tree trunks and a Bee Hive.  Have 
Efreet destroy the bee hive or you'll be swarmed with around 20 bees if you 
attack it.  The trees hold nothing useful except for a spirit potion.  Jump 
into the pit nearby, you'll find a few zombies.  Go up the stairs to the 
right, and continue north out of the underground.  Follow the steps up and 
around to the right and go south.  When you reach the river, go right to the 
next screen and pick up a red gem for Efreet.  Head back to the previous 
screens and jump down to a barrel.  Head to the screen to the south on this 
level.  You'll arrive at the river below heading to the right.  Fall in that 
pit(surrounded by red bushes).  You'll run into ghosts.  These are annoying, 
kill them and they'll temporarily be dead, their spirit will float around and 
they will reappear at full health again soon.  Run to the left, destroy the 
bush at the top of the steps and get a key.  Go back to the unlit lamp 
post(light it with Efreet if you want), then go south through a somewhat 
hidden door and press the switch found in a bush.  It'll open the door to the 
north.  Head through and in the next screen, climb up, light up the lamp post 
with Efreet to open the doors to the south and proceed through to the next 
screen.  Head south and you'll come across some zombies.  Fire will eliminate 
zombies with one hit.  To the left you'll find a spring plant.  To achieve a 
maximum jump height, hit C when Leon has pressed down the spring as far as it 
will go.  Head up the stairs.  Go past the dead plant and follow the path 
down and around to the left, then north.  You'll fight zombies along the way, 
and then drop down in the pit to your right at the end.

You'll land in a small room and you'll have to fight one large spider along 
with its many smaller spiders.  Don't worry about any poison spells, but they 
will hurt for a good amount if you let them.  Kill them all and a key will 
appear for you to use to open the door.  Proceed through to the next screen.  
In here, you'll find a small pond with weeds everywhere.  In the northern 
pile of weeds, you can find a key.  Pick it up, then head south, up the 
stairs and through the locked door.  You'll get your first scroll of the Rod 
of Purification.  Go back to the swamp and destroy the trunk above the 
obelisk.  It will reveal a blue Power Ball.  With the rod equipped, step 
through to receive purification magic.  This will make springs appear on 
healthy plant buds, it will permanently kill ghosts and zombies and will 
bring dead old skeletons to life.  Head up the stairs and use one shot on the 
bud and dead skeleton.  A spring will appear(leading to nowhere) and the 
skeleton will rise.  Talk to the skeleton and it will open the door for you, 
but don't go through.  Go back to the swamp, and with 3 purification powers, 
use the bud on the upper left and go to the next level up for another Scroll 
for the Rod of Purification.  Head south and use the purification on the bud 
on the left and climb up the levels and go up the stairs, out of the earth 
and on the other side of the river.  Go to the next screen to the right and 
you'll find more ghosts.  To the south you'll find an island surrounded by a 
pit.  Head past that to the south and you'll find a boulder on the upper 
ledge.  Get to it from the screen to the right.  Break the boulder by pushing 
it off the ledge and get a key.  Go back to where the boulder was.  Go as far 
north as you can on that level, and run and jump with great timing and you'll 
reach the island surrounded by a pit.  Fall in the small hole and you'll 
appear next to a special white chest.  Open it to achieve a Blue Cube(this 
will save you a lot of time later on obtaining it now).  Head back to where 
you would go to that boulder with the key and use the white circle to save.  
Go to the pit south of it, but hit the stack of platforms to create a bridge 
across the river for future access for exploring.  Jump in the pit.

You'll appear on the higher level of the swamp room, go south on this level.  
Open the door with the key and go across the bridge.  On this level, go 
around the stairway and then head north and you'll find a boulder.  Push this 
boulder all the way down the path you used to reach it and at the bottom, 
you'll find a stone to your right on the lower level.  Drop the boulder onto 
the switch and two iron balls will fall and create stepping stones for you to 
access the upper and lower levels, and you'll receive another scroll of sound 
for your bow.  On the upper level, go back west and take the stairs below the 
iron box(which contains an elixir).  Don't destroy any of the grass here, 
they contain nothing but zombies.  Go to the screen to the left.  Head up and 
you'll find a large red chest on a ledge above you.  Go left and you'll come 
across a blue circle.  Fill up your spirit power, then go north under the 
ground bridge and have Efreet melt the ice.  Then summon Dytto and have her 
put out the fire near the tree root.  It will reveal a blue Power Ball.  Step 
through with the ball with the rod to get 6 purification spells.  Use it on 
the plant bulb at the very bottom of the screen.  Use the spring to reach the 
stairs and proceed.  On the next screen, don't take the stairs yet and go to 
the left of them.  Go up the stairs that lead to the dead skeleton and revive 
him with a spell of purification.  He will create a path for you that leads 
to another blue gem for Dytto, get it and head north to the next screen.  
Keep going north on your level and step on the switch, it will lower a 
platform for you to reach the upper and lower levels.  Go southwest from the 
switch, then up and around south to the next lower screen.  Jump in the pit 
you come to and you'll find a large gold crystal, a large iron pot and a 
black chest.  Get the key.  Two things you can do here.  You can use the iron 
pot to reach the level beyond the wall next to you by pushing it past the 
fire/ice/water using the spirits to get rid of them.  This will save you some 
time, but it's very difficult, one hit from fire will destroy the pot.  Or, 
you can go back to the screen where you lowered the platform with the switch 
and go right instead of left, and find a pit that will drop you to the level.  
Once there, you'll find another key, a scroll for the Rod of Purification and 
a red circle to recover your health only.  You should have two keys.  Go back 
to the plant spring on the bottom of the screen and go back up the stairs 
again.

On this screen, use the stairs to the right this time and keep going north 
until you can't anymore, then go to the screen on the right.  Go right, then 
south(beside the river) and summon Efreet from the fire and jump in the pit 
nearby.  Have Efreet light the lamp post and the door will remain open for 
you, but don't go through.  Go to the left.  You're on the upper level where 
the big chest was.  Continue to the left and the sign is the reference point 
to where the chest is.  Jump directly south to reach it.  Use the giant 
ginger from the plant/chest nearby to help with the jump across if you want.  
You'll get the Heavy Sword, Long Sword level 1.  This is a very powerful 
sword, but it is very heavy for Leon and is difficult to use.  I use it most 
often, but it's up to you to decide which weapon is best for you to carry 
along and fight monsters with.  Jump back across and continue left on this 
level.  Go around to the south and you'll arrive at a locked door.  Go 
through.  In this screen, you'll see a white and purple circle right above 
you.  Use both to recover health and save your game.  Get ready for the boss, 
bring Efreet with you.  Go through the door.

You'll fight Berbulb.  It'll attack with a spiked vine that it'll whack you 
with.  It'll also send out bombs from its top and it will open and spread a 
bunch of bees to fight.  Use Efreet's Fire Storm to inflict massive amounts 
of damage, and keep roll attacking it with your long sword.  It'll soon die.  
If you have trouble, then have Dytto with you to protect your health as you 
fight it solo.  Defeat it and go awaken Bawu, the Spirit of Earth.  He can be 
summoned from almost every plant.  A gold obelisk will appear and you can 
read the controls if you want.

Controls:
Gulp Attack - Press the A button once
Bawu will bite and attack those enemies within his reach.  He will also bite, 
eat and swallow enemies whole if they're "swallow-able".  He will also eat 
iron balls.
Geo Dive - Press the A button twice rapidly
Bawu will tunnel through the ground and resurface where Leon summoned him.
Mud Fang - Hold the A button until the blue eye of the armlet is flashing, 
then release
Bawu will disperse into many tiny Bawus and will scour the area and attack 
foes.
No button actions: Bawu will bite enemies as they approach him.  He will also 
bite and open any cracks in the earth that are nearby him, and reveal their 
buried treasure.

Upon leaving, you'll run into a villager who will tell you that you can 
return to the village quickly by taking the river.  Go down the stairs, back 
to the underground and take the spring plant to your right and go back up the 
stairs.  You'll encounter another one of the 3 silver guardians, DarkWill.  
He will give you a message to bring to the village: To return Myra to spare 
the village of the evil curse.  Continue north, then to the right and you'll 
happen across the river, jump in and follow it back to town.  Return to town.

Power up the rod with the magic of purification(if you don't have it powered) 
with a blue Power Ball Item from the southeastern dead tree(destroy it), then 
go to the most northeastern house.  Use Dytto's cure to restore the plant 
bud, then use the magic rod to create a spring from it.  Lose Dytto and 
summon Bawu from the plant and use the spring to go on top of the house.  
You'll see a crack.  Summon Bawu over it and he'll bite open the crack and 
reveal another scroll for the rod of purification.  Search carefully for 
these kind of cracks and have Bawu open them to reveal secret items.

Go to the house in which the ill girl with the black hair is sleeping(door 
entrance directly east of the save point).  Have Dytto use her cure spell and 
the girl will wake up.  She will introduce herself as Myra, a fortune teller.  
She will tell you about Agito and his three guardians: Red Demon, Bludgeon 
and DarkWill.  Go talk to Ordan who will watch over Myra.  Go back to Myra 
and she will give you the Red Cube.  This will give you access to the old 
Coliseum to the west of the fire shrine.  Exit town.

Head south until you see a sign telling you to observe the mouse.  A mouse 
will come from the hole, kill it if you want.  You see another crack nearby.  
Summon Bawu and have him eat the crack to reveal two Tiny Thymes.  Get them 
both quickly and then crouch into the hole the mouse emerged from.  Go 
through, killing all the mice and read the sign at the end of the cavern.  
Grab the cheese that falls and get ready to fight a lot of mice.  Kill them 
all, having Efreet burn them or Bawu swallow them whole.  Two barrels and a 
gold chest will appear.  Recover your health and spirit power and receive 
another scroll for the Rod of Purification.  Exit the hole.  Go to the forest 
to the west from the hole.  Take out the rod and destroy the grass bushes at 
the top of the screen to reveal a purification Power Ball Item.  Travel to 
the right.  Keep going, then head north.  You'll come across a pond guarded 
by a fence, but you'll also see a plant bud.  Make a spring from it and use 
it to jump over the fence into the pond, and go south to find a black chest 
with a gem for Dytto.  Get it and head out of the pond to the north(As you 
might notice, this gem was obtainable back when you were first going to get 
Efreet, I held off to getting it now because it's quicker).  Take the bridge 
to the level in the pond and you can use the rod's current magic to create a 
spring on the bud below the Reharl statue, then use a light ball on it to 
talk with the statue.  This statue will guide you at any point in the game if 
you ever get lost.  He will instruct you to go to the Coliseum.  Go north.  
Before you go to the Coliseum, go back to the entrance of the Forest of 
Earth.  Get to where the save point is and summon Bawu.  Go south, then to 
the right to the next screen.  Bawu will open a crack and you'll get another 
scroll for the Rod of Purification.  Go to the save point and save your game 
if you wish.  Then head to the Coliseum, located directly west of the screen 
of the entrance to the Fire Shrine(or North from where you are, after getting 
the scroll from the crack).

You'll see the entrance blocked with a giant iron ball.  Two ways past this.  
Have Bawu eat it or stand to the left of it, face the right and hit it to the 
right, then push it over.  The door it blocked will open and you'll fight a 
Giant(literally).  Defeat the Giant, and a boulder will break the ground, 
revealing a hole into the Shrine of Sound.

E.Shrine of Sound
The place where "Brass, the Spirit of Sound" lies.  Shrine of Sound

You'll appear next to an obelisk which will inform you three switches will 
open the door.  This clue will be used throughout the shrine, so remember it.  
Destroy the three bushes to reveal three switches.  Press them all to open 
the door below.  Head through, the sign will tell you Armor Rats can't be 
damaged, and must be swallowed whole.  Quite obviously you know only who can 
get the job done.  Go to the left, then north, then around to the right and 
find three floating platforms going back and forth leading across the pit of 
spikes to the right.  Go across and destroy the Totem Pole enemies with the 
black chest on top.  Take the key and go back to the beginning with the save 
point.  Go to the right.  Don't go down the stairs, take the path to the 
right, then down, then right again into the next screen.  You're back in the 
Fire Shrine and you can go get the gold chest you saw earlier.  Get a scroll 
of sound and the door will open for you to use whenever you want.  Go back to 
the Shrine of Sound, take the stairs south and open the door.

In here, have Bawu summoned and open the crack next to the northwest bush to 
reveal a water spout.  Lose Bawu and summon Dytto and destroy the northwest 
bush to find a magic powerball for the rod of purification.  Power up the rod 
and have Dytto restore the plant bud to the left.  Use the purification rod 
to create a spring and use it to get a key.  Open the door by the Armor Rats 
and go through.  Summon Efreet if you can from the soldier's bombs.  If not, 
go back through the door, go right to the next screen and continue going 
right past the Tower enemies and you'll find some flames below.  Go back 
through the previous opened door and go right.  Light up the lamp.  Go back 
to the soldier and go to the door with two more unlit lamps.  Light them up 
and the door will open.  In here, you fight fire enemies, don't bring Efreet 
with you.  Dytto's magic bubbles can defeat these enemies instantly.  You can 
try to summon her from the droplets in the room, or before you head in, after 
lighting the lamps, go back to the spring Bawu revealed and summon her.  
Defeat the fire enemies and an obelisk will appear letting you know about 
techniques.  Hit the two switches, turning off the fire.  Go back to the 
Armor Rats, and go right.  Continue right past the Tower enemies and south to 
a third fire switch.  Turn the fire off and the door below will open.  Go to 
the left.  You'll find some more enemies along a stack of rock pillars.  
Defeat all the enemies to turn off the fire above you.  Open the bush to 
reveal a floating spiked ball.  Hit the ball to have it float across the 
room.  It will hit, damage and destroy the rock pillars.  Have it destroy the 
two blocking the passageway to the left.  Go through and head all the way 
north into the next screen.  You'll find a lot of treasure chests, but half 
of them are monsters.  Get the invincible vegetable so you can defeat the 
monsters with no damage.  Open the big chest and you'll get the Power Rod, 
Level 2.  Exit this room and keep going south until you go down the stairs to 
the next part of the shrine.

Summon Bawu from the plants and he'll open up a crack nearby, revealing a 
water spout.  Go to the screen below and have Bawu open up two more cracks 
near the chest, and the door below will open, allowing you to recover your 
health on the red circle, spirit power on the blue circle and save your game.  
Continue downward and push the boulder off the ledge below.  It will crush a 
stone switch.  Two more in this room to press.  Go all the way down and to 
the right.  You'll find some soldiers and another stone switch in the lower 
right corner.  Go to the level above and you'll find an iron ball.  Kill the 
soldiers and roll the iron ball over the ledge over the stone switch and 
crush it.  One to go.  Destroy the big bush near where the soldiers were to 
reveal a small passage you can crawl through.  Go through and head up the 
stairs.  You'll see the last stone switch with an iron ball above it to the 
right.  Push it over and a nearby door will open.  Go in that door to the 
large red chest and get the Fire Cracker, Bomb Level 1.  Use the Y button to 
throw.  You can hold 10 bombs at this level.  A red chest will appear and 
inside you will find 3 pouches, each holding 3 bombs.  Pick them up, leave 
the room and throw a bomb down to the switch on the lower level to your 
right.  A gold chest will appear on your level.  Open it for a scroll of 
sound.  Go back to the save point and head north to the next screen.  Keep 
going north, you'll arrive at a switch and a door.  Use a bomb on the switch 
and run to the door.  The switch will activate, making the door disappear, 
but making another door appear behind you.  Proceed and open the two bushes 
to reveal two spiked balls.  Hit them and direct them to the large stone 
pillar below and destroy it.  Get them both to travel past that pillar and 
guide them to destroy the two smaller stone pillars on the next level below 
another switch door.  You'll reveal a key and a blue gem.  Have the switch 
positioned with the upper door closed, then use a bomb on the switch to swap 
the doors with you on the other side.  In this room, you'll find Bawu's first 
green gem, called Emeralds, and some bombs.  Jump down below and go back to 
where you picked up the bombs.  Go back under the gate and go up to the iron 
ball you used to press the second stone switch.  Go through the locked door.  
In the next screen, have Bawu eat the large iron ball.  Go up, then around to 
the right and back down the stairs.  The obelisk will tell of traps that are 
triggered by electricity.  Go all the way down and open the bush to reveal a 
small white button.  Step on it to activate a robot that will walk over to 
the switch and shut down.  It will emit a small burst of electricity and 
light up the switch.  Go to the right from where you are and then go north 
where the bush is.  Go past the bush and open the gold chest revealing your 
first scroll of the Flame Sword.  With the Long Sword equipped, step into a 
magic red Power Ball to power up the sword to Flame Sword.  3 uses per 
scroll.  It can be used to damage enemies with fire and destroy dead trees in 
a slash.  Continue along the path and destroy the dead trees.  You'll reveal 
2 more scrolls through the trees.  You'll run into a bunch of zombies that 
you can burn away with your Flame Sword.  Roll the iron ball off the switch, 
then head back.  Go over to the iron ball on another switch in the corner 
near a plant bud.  Summon Bawu if you don't have him and make him eat the 
iron ball.  Go to the bush you passed by earlier, open it to reveal another 
small white button.  Step on it and a robot will walk to the right and will 
stop at the wall.  After its electricity release, use it as a step to the 
next level.  Push the iron ball off the third switch and the door will open.  
Proceed.

The obelisk will say one of the paths will illuminate the light.  There are 
four bushes, each with a light that will float around in a certain path, and 
only one will reach the light.  The light in the most southern bush will 
reach the light.  When it activates the light, four chests will appear, 
containing health for you and your spirit, as well as half an elixir.  Go all 
the way back to where you activated the first light/saw the first robot and 
go north.  You'll reach another locked door with an unlit light and a switch.  
Hit the switch to activate the light and the door will open.  Recover any 
health with the red circle and head to the next screen to the north.  Some 
soldiers will throw down some bombs.  The sign reads the activation controls 
of one of Agito's weapons, orange being off, blue being on.  Head up and 
around and crawl through the hole and push down the iron ball to use as a 
step to where the soldiers are.  Press the orange switch to send bombs to the 
idle soldiers and kill them.  Press the blue switch to turn them off.  Go 
around the corner to the north and you'll find a deactivated blue robot.  Hit 
it to have it face upward and continue north to a bush.  Open it to reveal a 
spark that will travel back and forth to activate the robot.  When the robot 
is in line with the gold iron robot with a blinking blue light, hit it once 
to change its direction to the gold one and it will be destroyed, revealing a 
gold chest containing a Scroll of Sound.  Go to the left, hit the switch to 
open the door, and head down and press the switch on the floor.  Some rocks 
will hit and kill the enemies.  The obelisk will read: "Last: Left, Right, 
Right".  Remember it.  Go back to that gold robot and continue to the right.  
Hit the switch to open the door, but throw a bomb onto the switch, and run 
through the door.  It'll open the other door.  Go through and head to the 
left.  You'll enter a room and fight some more enemies for a bit.  When 
they're dead, get the key below and head back to the save point you passed 
earlier.  Save your game.  Proceed through the locked door.  In the next 
room, head up the stairs to the right and you'll enter a timing puzzle.  You 
must destroy everything in the room before the third bell tolls.  If you 
fail, exit the room, reenter and try again.  The bush on the far right holds 
a Power Ball Item for the Flame Sword, so get it to help destroy the trees.  
When you succeed, the door below will open. If you finish with two bell 
tolls, the door will open.  If you finish with one bell, you get a scroll of 
the Flame Sword.  If you finish with no bells, you get two gems, a red and 
green gem.  Go through the door and the obelisk will read "Second time: Left, 
Right, Left".  Destroy the bush and the chest within for a key.  Head below 
to a locked door and go in.  Head down the stairs.

You'll see many shiny crystals and a save point to your left.  Save and head 
up to the obelisk.  This will read "First time: Right, Left, Left".  The 
meaning of these clues comes into play now.  You're presented with 3 
switches, and you must have them face the directions in the correct order of 
the first, second and last times to proceed through the door.
First time: Right, Left, Left
Second time: Left, Right, Left
Last time: Left, Right, Right
The bushes on both sides of you reveal fire and water if you want to bring 
along either spirit for the boss.  If you want Bawu, summon him from the 
bushes.  Proceed through the door when the puzzle is complete to fight the 
Boss guarding Brass.

You will fight TimTim.  It will first appear as a giant sand skull in the 
center of the room.  Do not touch it, but keep striking it, shrinking it and 
TimTim will appear as some small creature.  Attack it before it disappears 
into the sand.  It will burrow into the sand, watch where it goes, and it 
will resurface as either the giant skull or several sand structures.  It's 
hiding in one of them.  Attack them all, find the one it's hiding in, then 
attack it.  If you don't find him, he will unleash an attack and you can do 
nothing but try to avoid it, and it'll go back into the ground and you'll 
have another chance to find it.  Defeat it to open the door above and receive 
your 4th spirit, Brass, the Spirit of Sound.  He can be summoned from anything 
brass, metal or iron in its nature.  A gold obelisk will appear and you can 
read the controls if you want.

Controls
"Cone of Sound" - Press the A button once
Brass will emit a soundwave in the direction it's facing, mainly Leon's 
facing direction.  It can shatter blue crystals, stun enemies or disable 
spark enemies.
"Shock Wave" - Press the A button twice rapidly
Spreads out from within, Brass will send a shockwave of sound out around from 
where he is, doing the same as Cone of Sound, but larger range and attacks 
more things.
"Destructive Cacophony" - Hold the A button until the blue eye of the armlet 
is flashing, then release
Brass will turn into a large high pitched sounding instrument and charge up 
its attack, aim and release in Leon's facing direction, piercing enemies and 
gold crystals, a much stronger attack of the Cone of Sound.
No Button Actions: As he's floating around, if an enemy is close enough, 
he'll slap them.

Upon leaving, you'll run into Red Demon again, supposedly the first 
subordinate of Agito.  He will inform you that the entire village is now in 
disarray, all are sick and dying because of Myra.  He will disappear.  Summon 
Brass from the gold, metallic robot and use Brass's attacks to shatter the 
crystals.  To your left behind the crystals is another scroll of the Rod of 
Purification.  The crystals below contain spirit power, a magic potion, an 
elixir, an ice block and an obelisk, saying the strongest sounds can shatter 
gold crystals.  Charge up Brass's attack with A and release on the gold 
crystal to break it.  Go in the time portal revealed and you'll appear at the 
entrance to the Coliseum.  Destroy the crystal to the right and hit the 
switch to open the doors(leave them open, this will also save you time 
later).  Go up the stairs.  Head down, around to the left, then back north 
and down the stairs on the other side.  Continue along to the Reharl statue, 
he'll let you know of where the two remaining cubes are located.  They are 
within white chests in the Forest of Earth(which you already got) and the 
Mystic Dimension.  Leave the Coliseum and return to the village.  You'll 
notice new enemies are lurking around.  Everyone is ill and dropping at the 
village.  Use Dytto's healing magic to help them and talk to them.  Upon 
entering town you'll meet the third silver guardian, Bludgeon, saying if Myra 
doesn't return to Agito and his guardians, the village will continue to 
suffer.  Use Dytto's healing power to help Ordan.  He will say he is dying 
and it's up to you to restore peace.  He will give you his sword, the Ordan 
Sword, Long Sword Level 2.  Leave town.

The large Reharl statue will tell you to go to the Shrine of Darkness 
accessible via the Forest of Earth, guarded by the big gold crystal.  
Remember that iron vase?  Return to it.  You can get there by going west of 
the save point outside of town, using the purification rod on the dead 
skeleton to let you pass, then continue traveling west.  The screen south of 
a black treasure chest monster has a pit that will lead to the crystal.  Make 
your way there, summon Brass from the iron vase, use his charged A attack to 
shatter the crystal and head inside.

E.Shrine of Darkness
The place where "Shade, the Spirit of Darkness" lies.  Shrine of Darkness

Upon entering, you'll find two crystals.  Break the second one for a white 
gem, called Diamonds.  Brass will gain a level.  Don't destroy the large 
crystals further ahead.  To the right is a switch on an upper level.  
Jumpkick the switch to open the door or use an arrow.  Go back up the steps 
near the entrance and go along the right side of stairs of the upper level.  
Go through the opened door and the ledge next to the switch you kicked, jump 
to it, you'll reach another large blue crystal.  Break that one and the 
yellow chest next to it.  Get a key, then go directly west, jumping across 
the gap and going through the locked door.  Push the boulder off the ledge 
onto the stone switch to activate a platform, then head north to find a bunch 
of blue crystals.  Have Brass break them all to reveal a key and a few 
Zombies.  Kill them, then open the door below and get your first Scroll of 
the Earth Sword.  This will empower your sword with a green colored spell 
that will allow you to break stone.  Go back to the first room, and go to 
where you broke the large blue crystal next to a key.  Stay on this level and 
go up to the next screen.  Go across the bridge to the right and go down to 
the previous screen on the other side.  Open the black chest for a blue gem.  
Return to the screen you left and jump down to the level with all the 
crystals.  Destroy the upper left crystal for a key.  Head back to the first 
room on the lower level.  Go all the way down and open the door to a blue 
magic circle and another key.  Go back up to the upper level where you found 
a boulder and a trapbox.  Roll the boulder off the ledge to destroy the stone 
switch below.  Ride the platforms across to two stone pillars and a bush.  
The bush holds a green Power Ball for the sword of earth.  Empower your sword 
and destroy the stone pillars.  Follow the path, crawling under the ledges, 
go around to the right, and then head north, you'll eventually go downstairs.  
Head south and go through the locked door.  Follow the path past the spark 
enemies and you'll enter a room with two Chimney enemies with two chests on 
top them.  Kill them and open the chests for a key and a scroll for the sword 
of earth.  Return through the passages and up the stairs.  Go back to the 
crystal room and destroy the large gold crystal for a green magic Power Ball 
for Earth magic.  Power your sword, and go to the 4 large stone pillars up 
ahead.  Stand between the 2nd and 3rd pillars and use your 360 slash on them 
twice to break them all.  Repower your sword.  Go down the stairs.

Break the stone pillar to the right as you enter and get another scroll of 
the Sword of Earth.  Toward the center of this room is a black chest on top a 
stone pillar containing a green gem.  Get it and continue south, then all the 
way to the right to the next screen.  Kill the skeleton enemies here and the 
door will open.  Go through and you can refill your Spirit Power on the blue 
circle.  Go to the right, under the bridge, to the right and up the stairs.  
Hit the switch, but don't ride the platform.  Wait for it to return, it will 
go under the bridge and go to the ledge below you.  Ride it to that ledge and 
when you're there, go to the left and find a key.  Go back to the switch and 
take the stairs beyond it to the left.  Follow that path all the way to find 
another white gem.  Pick it up and return.  Return to the switch that moves 
the platform under the bridge.  This time ride it to where the soldiers are.  
Use one of your keys on the door which contains another key and the Battle 
Knife, short sword level 2.  Go back across to the switch and staying on this 
level, head north to find another locked door.  Head through with a key.  
Head north and you'll enter a room with a blob with worms sticking out of 
it(Sword of Earth magic won't hurt it).  Defeat it to make two chests appear, 
one with a key and a red gem.  Return to the previous screen.  Go to the 
lower level and go up to the next screen below the soldiers.  Go up the 
stairs and you'll find a switch on the floor, an iron ball and an unlit lamp.  
Roll the iron ball onto the switch to raise the platforms beyond the door.  
Light the lamp with a bomb and you'll be trapped in that area by fire and 
will have to fight a giant Goldman.  Defeat him and the door will open, head 
up the path and through the locked door.  You'll fight another large enemy 
named Ghostarm.  Defeat this monster to make a green Power Ball appear.  With 
the long sword, step through and use the power to break the stone pillars to 
your right(There is a save point to your left and an elixir to your right in 
this room for you to use before going to the next screen).  Head to the right 
to the next screen.  Continue traveling right and fall in the pit.  Defeat 
all the ghosts here with the Rod of Purification.  You can find a Power Ball 
Item for it in any of the grass here.  Head northeast and hit the switch to 
activate the platform.  Ride the platform to the higher levels.  Jump there 
and you'll find a gold trapbox/Toothbox.  Defeat it and jump across the gap 
to the left and find another scroll for the Rod of Purification.  Go back to 
the switch that activated the platform and go south to find another switch.  
Hit it to open the door below and head in.  Go all the way down and take the 
stairs on your right.  Up here, you'll find a gold crystal(with an obelisk 
inside describing a new move) and a switch.  Hit the switch to lower the fire 
and go through.  Jump across the pit to the north and light the two switches 
with bombs to activate the platforms.  Ride the north platform to a black box 
containing a green gem.  Head back and take platform to the southwest.  It'll 
bring you to another unlit lamp.  Light it with a bomb and the final platform 
will be activated.  Go to the lower level and fall in the box-shaped hole.  
You'll fight many spiders.  Defeat them all, one holds a fire Power Ball Item 
for your long sword.  Get it and use it to go through all the dead trees.  
Hit the switch to open the door and head south to the next screen.  Summon 
Bawu from the plants and head south.  You'll find a purple magic circle to 
recover your health/spirit power.  Continue south, then around to the right 
and north to a save point.  There is a crack above it.  Use Bawu to eat it 
open to reveal a green Power Ball to power your long sword to destroy stone.  
Save your game and power your sword.  Head to the northwest to find a stone 
switch and an obelisk.  Hit the switch with your sword to open the door.  Go 
through and hit the other stone switch to your left.  Ride the platform to 
the south.  You'll come to a black box with a key.  Get it and go back 
across.  Go to the right.  You'll find an apple, some fire and a dead tree.  
Use your long sword rolling attacks or a bomb to destroy the tree to reveal a 
purification powerup orb.  Step through with the rod and eliminate all the 
zombies in the passageway to the south.  Turn the plant bud into a spring and 
jump to the next level.  Head north and use the purification rod on the 
skeleton bones.  It will tell you electricity is weak against sound waves.  
Don't go to the next screen yet.  Go back and powerup your sword with Earth 
power at the save point.  Return to the skeleton.  Go to the next screen on 
the right.  Go to the top right, you'll find some ice.  Use a bomb to turn it 
to water.  Summon Dytto.  Use a bomb on all the trees in the room.  They'll 
all explode and you'll fight a large fire enemy.  Dytto can help kill it 
quickly with her bubbles.  If you killed it quickly, it'll lower the two iron 
pillars to the right.  Go to the right and you'll find a rock switch.  Hit it 
with your long sword with the Earth powerup and it'll open the door.  Head 
through to get the Fire Bomb, bomb level 2.  You can now hold 20 much 
stronger bombs.  Go to the right from the bomb upgrade and go over the iron 
pillars.  Destroy the bush and fight many small Amoebas and a large amoeba 
named SHIOSHIO.  Defeat them all(a spark enemy will enter the room if all the 
small amoebas are killed first) and you'll get a lot of SP recovery items, 
then a scroll for the Earth Sword.  Go back out and head to the south screen 
from the iron ball and you'll find some unlit lights and two robots with a 
small white button next to them.  Step on the white button next to the blue 
robot first.  When it takes its third step(in line with the large light 
switch), hit it and it'll go to the large switch and activate it.  Then just 
step on the other white button next to the red robot and a black chest will 
appear for you.  Get the key and return to the previous room.  

In here, go to the west to find a locked door.  Head through.  Follow the 
spark enemy to the south, and summon Brass from the iron box.  Go right, up 
the stairs and to the left.  Follow this path, using Brass's shockwave 
attacks to disable the sparks so you can pass.  After the fast spark, go to 
the ledge to the south and jump across to a ledge.  Jump south again, and 
then head right on the upper level.  Go through the locked door.  To the 
north is a save point circle with a red health circle to the upper left and a 
blue spirit circle to the upper right.  Save and go to the robots.  Have the 
red Moverobo face downward, then step on the small white switch above the 
gold one.  A blue Moverobo will walk from the left.  Hit it once it is in 
line with the red robot.  Once the red robot is activated, it'll walk and hit 
it when it's in line with the gold robot.  The gold robot will tell you when 
the creature growls to aim for the tail, a clue for the boss.  Save and head 
to the next screen to the north.  You'll find a ghost spirit matching the 
colors of the spirits you have.  Defeat them and if you can/want, summon the 
spirit you want to have from the ghosts.  I would probably take Dytto.

NOTE: Before heading through the locked door, MAKE SURE you have gone through 
EVERY locked door in the shrine.  This is important because you get a key in 
each locked room, meaning if you use your last key on the boss door, and you 
missed a room, that room will be locked forever, as the key for it is inside, 
and you will have missed any items in there.  The guide will have brought you 
through each room, but if you're at this point when you first open the guide, 
I'd probably want to go through the dungeon again really quick, or you could 
be restarting the entire game again, if you want to have every item at the 
end of the game.

Head through the locked door.

You'll find a Ghost Egg and many ghosts will appear.  You can't harm the 
Ghost Egg.  Defeat the ghosts in the room and their spirit will enter the 
Egg, and the Egg will gradually awaken and hatch, revealing the boss.  You'll 
fight Screamer.  If you use the rod of purification on the ghosts while the 
Egg awakens, the boss will be much shorter and easier to fight.  Aim for the 
tip of its tail to damage it.  It'll roam around the room, attempting to 
charge and run into you.  Defeat it and the door to the north will open.  Go 
awaken your fifth spirit: Shade: the Spirit of Darkness.  He can be summoned 
from any reflective surface or darkness objects: Crystals, obelisks, ice, and 
ghosts.  A gold obelisk will appear and you can read the controls if you 
want.

Controls
Shadow Reach - Press the A button once
Shade will reach out with its dark claws and attack anything in its path.  
This can pull switches and destroy weed creatures(Thorns).
Vertical Shadow Strike - Press the A button twice rapidly
Shade will attack with its claw directly above you.
Passion - Hold the A button until the blue eye of the armlet is flashing, 
then release
You will be able to see through Shade's eyes, being able to see hidden and 
invisible objects not seen in the normal spectrum(like ghosts and chests).
No Button Actions: Shade will automatically protect you from attacks, but if 
there are too many, Leon will take some hits while Shade is stunned.  Shade 
will also catch Leon if he falls in a pit and bring him back to the ledge 
from which he fell.

As you leave, you'll return to the room with many Thorns.  Summon Shade from 
the gold obelisk or the crystal near the save point and use Shade's Dark Claw 
to kill the Thorns.  Every Thorn in this room will reveal a portal gate.  
Each portal gate leads to the following places:
From left to right:
Furthest left: Entrance to the Shrine of Darkness
Second furthest left(larger thorn): Entrance to Valley of the Dead
Middle: On Bridge leading to entrance to town(with purple circle)
Third from right(large thorn to the north): Above the Fire Shrine
Second from right(in the lower-right corner): Entrance to boss room of Water 
Shrine
Furthest right(smallest thorn): Entrance to boss room of the Shrine of Sound

Kill the middle Thorn and return to Town.  You'll see Ordan's grave.  Not 
much else to accomplish here.  Go back down the stairs and use Shade's 
Passion to find a hidden obelisk to your left.  It'll say the flames will bar 
the evil from returning.  This is to say you can refight the boss of any 
shrine by extinguishing the flames of the lamps in each spirit room.  The 
large Reharl statue will tell you to travel through the Valley of the Dead to 
reach the Air Shrine.  At the entrance to town, use Shade's Dark Claw to pull 
the handle switch to the right.  It'll reveal a portal gate which will take 
you back to the Thorn room in Shade's shrine.  Kill the thorn second from the 
left and take that portal.  You'll arrive south the entrance of the Valley of 
the Dead.  Enter.

F.Valley of the Dead

Head north and to the right, light the lamp with a bomb or Efreet.  Destroy 
the Thorn to reveal a green Power Ball for the sword of earth.  Powerup and 
destroy the rock switch just to the southeast of the Power Ball.  Go 
northwest.  Go around the Thorn on the upper level and head south until you 
see a bar switch.  Have Shade pull it to get a health potion.  Jump across 
the gap from the bar switch to the ledge with a red plant spring.  Use it to 
get to the next level.  Go across the bridge to the right and stand at the 
top of the stairs.  From there, jump across over to the next level to the 
south.  You'll find 3 stone pillars below.  Destroy them, and go through to 
find a scroll for the Fire Sword.  Go back and go left from the pillars and 
go down to the next screen.  You'll see a bush.  Open it to find a black 
chest with a red gem.  Return.  Now head all the way north, using the blue 
plant spring to the highest level and destroy the enormous Thorn to the 
right.  Go to the next screen.  Go north to the next screen.  Have Shade grab 
the bar switch to open the door.  Head north and you'll see a lonely fire 
burning to the left.  Extinguish it and if you use Shade's Passion, you'd see 
a gold chest where the fire was.  Open it for a Scroll of the Flame Sword.  
Go to the right.  You'll come across many spiders as well as plant buds and 
bushes.  Open the large bushes, one will have a blue Power Ball for the rod 
of purification.  Use it on the plant buds for plant springs.  You can get an 
elixir from the chest on the ledge accessible by the smallest plant bud.  
Turn the largest plant bud to a spring found to the north and jump to the 
next level.  Go up the stairs to the right.  Continue traveling upwards, then 
ride the platforms to the left, and head south.  Open the large bush on the 
next level for a green Power Ball.  Powerup for the sword of earth and 
continue east.  Use the spring to jump to the next level.  You see four doors 
guarding the entrance to the Air Shrine.  Don't destroy the rock yet.  
Continue going east, down the stairs, ride the platform you see and go down 
the stairs and step on the switch.  You'll see a gold chest appear and fall 
to the level below.  Jump down after it.  Open it for a Scroll of the Earth 
Sword.  Return to the rock switch.  Hit it this time and walk towards the 
door.  It will know you have the necessary power and the doors will 
disappear, opening up the path to the Air Shrine.  Enter and get ready to get 
the final spirit, Airl.

G.Wind Shrine
The place where "Airl, the Spirit of Air" lies.  Wind Shrine

Recover your health/spirit power with the purple circle and save your game.  
Go west, then south.  Bring Shade with you(summon from obelisk).  Follow the 
path to the right through the spark enemies and have Shade pull the bar 
switch.  Go back through and the door to the north has opened.  Go in and 
follow through to the right.  Eventually the passageway will be guarded by 
fire and you'll fight some enemies within this boundary.  Defeat them and 
continue to the right.  In here the wind will slowly push you to the north, 
so don't fall over the ledge.  You can defeat the enemies here or continue 
east.  There are some bombs and a small pond to the south.  It's also a 
passageway back to town, so don't follow it all the way.  Continue east, into 
the next screen passing the Monument enemy.  Stand behind the idle 
platform(don't stand on it) and jump and throw a bomb up to the unlit lamp.  
It'll light and the platforms will activate.  Ride them across and continue.  
Ride the platforms north, recover your spirit power with the blue magic 
circle and head north.  Summon Shade from the obelisk and go to the right, 
down the stairs.  Destroy the Thorn to reveal a blue Power Ball.  Powerup the 
Rod of Purification and head north on the platforms.  Turn the buds into 
springs.  On the right, you can light the two unlit lamps and ride the 
platform below to a half elixir.  Go to the left and fight some soldiers.  
When they're dead, you'll get a key and spirit health.  Open the locked door 
and have Shade pull the bar switch.  Return to the obelisk.  Go to the left 
this time.  Light the lamp with a bomb, it'll activate the platforms.  Ride 
across, and wait for the other one to arrive.  Ride that one to the left, and 
jump and throw a bomb up to the unlit lamp on the left.  It'll activate the 
platform with the black box on it and it'll lower.  To the north, have 
Shade's Dark Claw kill the Thorn, then activate the switch to open the door 
to the north.  Go in and it'll close behind you.  Go to the right and fight 
some enemies.  Get the black chest containing a key to the right.  Kill the 
enemies and you'll get two chests, one containing health and spirit power, 
and the large red chest containing the Long Bow, bow level 2.  Return across 
the pit and go through the locked door you saw earlier.  Defeat the enemies 
in this room and receive some grapes.  Have Shade pull the bar switch and go 
back across the pit.  Go to where that chest was lowered from before and get 
your first black gem for Shade, called an Onyx.  Return to the obelisk and go 
south.  Ride the platforms back across the pit and read the obelisk to the 
right.  It'll say three switches will open the pathway.  You already pulled 
two of them, and the third is right next to that obelisk.  Pull it and a 
platform will appear.  Ride it down(don't get on the passing platform) and 
get off at the ledge it arrives at.  Save your game.  Jump to the left onto 
the set of stairs with a switch.  Hit the switch to open the door.  Go 
through and you'll fight some enemies.  Step on the switch and a blue rock 
will fall from the sky to the ground below the shrine.  The sign will say the 
blue rock will create a portal for you to return to the shrine if you ever 
fall off.  Return to the save point.

Head south, two gargoyles will fly overhead.  Jumpkick and kill them and head 
south.  Use Shade's Dark Claw to kill the Thorn and reveal a green Power Ball 
for your long sword.  Powerup and hit the rock.  A black chest will fall from 
the sky and drop to the land below.  Before you go to retrieve it.  Head back 
up and head to the left.  Hit the switch to make a blue rock fall from the 
sky.  This will create a portal for you to take back to the shrine.  Lose 
Shade and jump down after the rock.  Go right to where the chest fell and 
pick up a gem for Shade.  Jump in the gate portal next to the Reharl statue 
to return to the shrine.  Summon Shade from the obelisk to protect you from 
falling.  Go back to the left and continue left with the upper bridge.  Go 
across and you'll fight two soldiers.  Defeat them for some bombs.  Take the 
lower path this time and head south.  When you reach land again, head west to 
find a stone switch.  Hit it with your powered sword and you'll see a gold 
chest fall from the sky to the land below.  Don't head down just yet... 
continue all the way to the east.  Destroy all the Thorns you run into, the 
top middle will reveal a purple magic circle that'll recover your health and 
spirit power slowly.  Head to the next screen to the south.  Keep traveling 
south, light the unlit lamp on the first island and keep going south.  On 
this corner island, you'll see another step switch.  Activate it and a blue 
rock will fall again.  Lose Shade and jump down.  This portal is to the 
bottom left of this screen.  Head north and in the water on the left side of 
the Reharl statue is where the gold chest fell.  Break it open to get a 
scroll for the Rod of Purification.  Go back to the portal you just created.  
From here, continue traveling west and you'll find two more unlit lamps.  
Light them up, they're creating a bridge on the right to the higher level 
island in front of you.  Make sure the stick switch is facing the left so the 
arrow weapons aren't firing as you continue west.  In the next screen, you'll 
find a black Power Ball.  The obelisk will tell you it's for the Bow when you 
have the Scroll of Darkness.  Travel north with the first bridges you saw 
upon entering the area.  Head up, then east back to the previous area.  Go 
across the long stone bridge, and you'll find two more unlit lamps.  Light 
them up and a bell will ring when the fifth is lit.  Go back to where you lit 
the first one and a bridge to the island will be created.  Head up there and 
use a ball of light on the Reharl statue and speak to it.  It will ask to 
show your patience.  No matter what happens, DO NOT MOVE!  Even when the 
bombs appear!  When the bell rings, a gold chest will appear.  Open it for a 
Scroll of the Earth Sword(Reharl still says you failed, but oh well).  The 
lower left bush on this island has a switch.  Press it and a green chest will 
fall to the earth.  Go around and jump down after it.  It will contain two 
Tiny Thymes.  See the mouse hole over to the right?  Go there, defeat the 
mouse and any surrounding enemies, then eat the Tiny Thymes and run over to 
the hole, crouch and crawl in.  In here, you must exterminate all the rats.  
You can find three sleeping at the very north section.  You can find several 
on the way to the little pond.  You can break open the chest next to the pond 
to reveal some rats.  The lit lamp on the next level can be extinguished to 
reveal some rats.  Four rats surround a single piece of cheese in the center 
of the area.  Watch out for the two small, hard to see, poison mushrooms 
within the area, they'll lower your health if you eat them.  There will be an 
earthquake when all the rats are defeated.  Make your way out and you'll be 
greeted by a super large rat.  Kill it and its smaller rats and you'll be 
awarded with a white gem for Brass.  Exit the hole and re-enter the hole.  
This time there is only one rat in the cave, found above the pond.  It looks 
like a small red dot.  Kill it for a green gem.  Exit the hole again and 
return to the Wind Shrine(via portal gate to your lower right).

Return to where you saw the black magic orb and an obelisk.  Head north and 
keep going until you reach a blue magic circle and an iron box.  Fill your 
SP, summon Brass from the iron box and travel west.  Use Brass's Sound attack 
to disable the spark enemies so you can pass.  Continue west and you'll find 
a gold chest with an obelisk describing the Scroll of the Dark Bow.  Get the 
scroll and return to the black Power Ball and powerup the bow.  Go to the 
three platform bridge and aim the bow up at the Thorn.  The Dark bow arrows 
will destroy the Thorn and two more platforms will appear and create the rest 
of the bridge for you.  Head up and save your game.

Continue to the left, down the stairs and onto the floating platform.  Jump 
across to the stairs and go to the next screen(past two stone pillars).  Head 
south, light the unlit lamp and ride the platform over to a key.  Get it, go 
back then go to the left, you see some large barrels.  The first one contains 
some rats.  Defeat them and a smaller barrel will appear with recovery items.  
The other barrel contains a black magic orb.  Powerup the bow and go through 
the door.  Stand on the platforms to your right, aim up and destroy the 
Thorn.  Ride the middle platform higher, then jump on the right platform, 
ride it to a level with a black chest.  Get the key from it and you'll fight 
some rats.  Kill them all and a red health potion will appear(do not get if 
you have a full elixir).  Ride the same platform across to the locked door.  
Go through and in the next screen a wind is blowing throughout the area, 
slightly hampering your movement.  Summon Bawu from the grass/bush and get 
the Earth Sword power.  Go back to the previous screen with the spiked pit, 
then back to the right with the save point.  Go up the stairs and you see two 
stone pillars you passed earlier.  Use your sword to destroy the lower one to 
reveal a switch.  Step on it and a gold chest will fall to the earth.  Jump 
after it and you'll get a Scroll of the Dark Bow.  Return to the Wind Shrine 
via portal to the screen on the right.  Return to the save point, then that 
spiked floor room, then north to the next screen.  Head straight north past 
everything to the next screen.  You find an obelisk, a bush containing some 
grapes and a bar switch for the locked door.  Summon Shade from the obelisk 
and open the door.  The obelisk will tell you a door will be opened when the 
six switches are aligned correctly.  Head back south to the previous screen.  
Destroy all three Chimney enemies here and you'll get a pouch of bombs to use 
on the unlit lamps that appear.  Light all three and a bridge to the north 
all the way to the left in this screen will appear.  Run across it to the 
north and go to the left.  You'll see a crack in the center of this area.  
Summon Bawu from the plants and have him open the crack for an elixir.  
Summon Shade from the crystal and use the Passion attack to see a gold chest.  
Open it for a Scroll of Sound.  Go back across the bridge and to the screen 
on the left.  To the left, you'll find 6 switches in a 2X3 pattern.  The sign 
next to it reads: 
6  2  3
4  1  5
Just like the positions of the switches.  First hit the robots so they face 
away from the door towards the switches on the ground.  Now stand between the 
switches and hit them in the ordered number shown in the pattern.  The fire 
will lower and you can enter through the doorway.  Head in and you'll find 
three gargoyles guarding the doors.  Kill them and the doors will open and a 
purple circle will appear for you to recover.  Continue north to the next 
screen.  Head up until you reach an obelisk reading the door being sealed by 
stone.  Summon Shade(if you don't have him) and have him destroy the Thorn to 
the left to reveal a blue Power Ball.  Ride the floating platform to the 
north and you'll come to a plant bud up some stairs.  Use the Purification 
Rod on the plant to create a spring and if you use Shade's Passion attack, 
you will see a gold chest.  Break it open to get a scroll for the Flame 
Sword.  Head back across.  Use the purification rod to kill the armored ghost 
enemies.  Head to the right, up the stairs to the next level, go to the left, 
then down until you see a large stone pillar.  To the right, hit the switch 
to lower the fire and beyond that there is a switch surrounded by spikes.  
Stand on the ledge and throw a bomb to press it.  It'll open the door to the 
left.  Enter and summon Dytto from the water.  Have her extinguish the large 
torch and it'll lower the fire on the next screen.  Head up the stairs on the 
right.  Travel left on this level, past the gap, fire and large stone pillar 
and you'll enter a room that'll be locked off and you'll fight some soldiers.  
Kill them and the door to the north will open.  Open the bush on the right to 
reveal a green Power Ball.  Powerup your sword and destroy the pillars in 
this room, especially the large stone pillar.  Head out through the opened 
door and kill the Thorn enemies to your right with Shade to reveal grapes and 
a plant bud(you can create a spring with the bud to jump to the next level to 
find an elixir to the left).  There are 3 more large stone pillars for you to 
destroy(4 total).  There's one to the lower right of the screen.  To get the 
one on the bridge, go through the opened door from the second pillar and take 
the stairs to it and jump across the gap.  The fourth and final pillar is 
right before the boss room to the north.  Break it and the door will open and 
a save point will appear.  Save and enter.

You'll see some stone pillars and up ahead you'll run into Myra, the mender 
of Agito's soul.  She will summon War Head to fight you.  You'll fight a 
large rock creature with arms.  Does this monster remind you of someone?  It 
will fly around and throw rocks on you, then it'll fall down and try to crush 
you.  As you hit it, it'll break down and become smaller.  It'll also become 
smaller when it throws rocks at you.  Break it completely down and a red ball 
will emerge.  Attack this to damage the boss.  You have little time so attack 
it as much as possible.  Soon it'll summon back rocks and become the rock 
monster again.  Try to defeat it before it does this again.  Defeat the red 
ball and the creature will explode.  The voice of Agito will appear, saying 
Myra was in her true form.  If you want her back, you must return the 3 cubes 
she took to Agito.  Head through the door to awaken the final spirit, Airl, 
the Spirit of Wind.  She can be summoned from any vapor spouts or water 
turned into steam vapor and anything electrical.  A gold obelisk will appear 
and you can read the controls if you want.

Controls
Lightning - Press the A button once.
Airl will send a lightning bolt a strike the ground an enemies around Leon.
Power Surge - Press the A button twice rapidly
Airl will become a large spark and shoot quickly in Leon's facing direction, 
electrifying and destroying anything in its path.
Fluffy Ride - Hold the A button until the blue eye of the armlet is flashing, 
then release
Airl will teleport to Leon and he can jump on top of Airl and float around 
above the ground.  Press the A or C button to dash across gaps.  Press X to 
jump off.
No Button Actions: Airl will shoot out little cloud bullets at enemies to 
shock them.  She'll also smack enemies if they're close enough.

As you leave, you notice two vapor spouts near the save point.  Summon Airl 
and head to the highest level in this area to the left(where you found an 
elixir).  Use Airl's Fluffy Ride and dash across to the island to the north 
and you'll find a green gem.  Get it and exit this room to the south.  In 
this room, jump in the water to the right and go to the waterfall.  You see a 
small iron box at the top.  Climb up the waterfall as high as you can and use 
Airl's Spark dash attack to hit the iron box.  It'll open to reveal a scroll 
of the Dark Bow.  To the water to the left, you find a crystal(a tool for 
summoning Shade) and you see nothing at the top of this waterfall.  However, 
if you used Shade's Passion, you could see a black chest.  Kick it open to 
reveal a black gem.  Get it and leave this room to the south, then travel to 
the right to the next screen(make sure to have Airl summoned).  Go past the 
chimney enemies and head back north to the room that leads to the entrance to 
the shrine.  Head north through the doorway past the spark enemies and to the 
right.  Fight some enemies again and continue right.  In here, have Airl 
activate the robot nearby and it'll tell you to float on a cloud north from 
where you are.  Ride Airl to the north and hover to the ledge.  Jump off and 
head up to the next screen for a black chest, containing a white gem for 
Brass.  Ride back across and continue to the right, and take the lower path 
to the right.  Go by all the enemies and go through the door you opened 
earlier.  There is an iron box here.  Have Airl open it for a black gem for 
Shade.  Return to the room with the chimney enemies and this time exit the 
room to the south.  In this spiked floor room, ride Airl to the left from the 
light lamps/doorway.  Dash across to a platform with an iron box.  Destroy it 
open for a red gem.  The two platforms will immediately activate and you can 
ride the one to the south.  Leave this room and go west from the large 
barrels.  You'll find a locked door with a gold robot next to it.  Activate 
it with Airl and talk to it.  It'll open the door.  Head in and continue 
north, then to the left.  In here, lose Airl and summon Shade from the 
Obelisk.  This part is very tricky.  Press the small white switch on the 
right and you'll see many raindrops.  Look where they hit the surface.  There 
is an invisible pathway noted by the raindrops.  Follow the pathway, with 
Shade just in case you fall(if you run out of spirit power, just go REAL 
SLOW).  Go to the left first and hit another switch, then you head down and 
to the right to another switch, then continue south, you'll reach land again.  
You'll fight some enemies to the left and there's a blue spirit circle to 
recover spirit power.  Summon Shade if you lost him and go down the stairs to 
the left.  Kill the Thorn with Shade and it'll reveal a summon ball for Shade 
and Airl.  Summon Airl and have her activate the light on the Reharl 
statue(he will simply tell you to light the switch for the path).  More 
raindrops will appear.  Summon Shade and walk across them.  Hit the switch 
when you make it across to the upper right and an iron ball will appear for 
you to jump up to the next level.  Head north and to the right to find a 
mouse asleep beneath a chest.  Kill the mouse and open the chest and you'll 
fight some ghost enemies.  Defeat them for a gold chest with a scroll of the 
Dark Bow.  Head down the stairs to the left and go north to the next screen.  
Use a bomb on the unlit lamp to activate the platform.  Ride it across and 
open the bush on the upper level to reveal a switch.  Hit it and the iron 
pillar below will rise.  Ride back across, jump on it and go to the upper 
level with the switch.  Summon Bawu from the bushes and open only the top 
left and right bushes of the four corner bushes.  The bottom right reveals a 
multicolored blob enemy and the bottom left reveals a crack that contains 
fire enemies when opened.  The other two reveal cracks Bawu can open.  The 
top left reveals an orange.  The top right reveals a white gem for Brass.  
Nothing left to do here, so jump down in the pit to fall down to earth, into 
the forest near where you found the blue cube.

If you did not get the blue cube earlier, summon Airl from the Valley of the 
Dead, return to the forest and head south.  Jump up to the upper level and 
head to the right on this ledge.  Open the bushes on the corner to reveal a 
robot.  Activate it with Airl and it'll say to float north from there.  Do so 
and you'll reach the hole you must drop into to reach the blue cube.

H.Preparation

Not Preparation H, but an optional section you may follow to get all 
remaining gems and scrolls(before the final chapter in the game) in the 
quickest path I could find as to not double track an area to get an item you 
missed that you could have gotten in one trip.  If you're not interested in 
items and want to continue the story, jump to the End Preparation part of 
this section.

Head north to the Valley of the Dead.  Summon Airl from the spout of steam up 
a ways to the north on the level below a Thorn enemy.  You need to reach the 
Thorn.  Get on a level further south by a red spring jump and ride Airl to 
the Thorn by dashing.  Lose Airl and summon Dytto and have her freeze the 
water to ice.  Now lose Dytto and summon Shade from the frozen ice.  Use 
Shade to destroy the Thorn and re-summon Airl from the steam to activate the 
light that appears from the Thorn.  A gold chest will appear and you'll get 
another Scroll of the Dark Bow.  Head to the right, go up a level with a gray 
spring jump and go to the next screen(if you remember that was blocked by a 
large Thorn).  Head south, but don't fall down to the lower level.  In the 
bush next to the river is a block of ice known as TOKIPIN.  Use the power of 
the Rod of Purification to free Tokipin of its ice prison(you can get the 
power from Dytto by pressing X with the rod equipped).  This is a friendly 
treasure box monster that will join you briefly.  Sadly, it isn't a spirit, 
as it tells you if it dies.  Controls are simple and are told to you as the 
creature is freed.  The sign reads to defeat all the enemies below without 
falling in.  Use Tokipin to jump down and defeat the treasure box monsters.  
Or you can throw bombs down to hit the enemies and then kill them as they 
come and attack you.  When they're dead, a gold chest will appear for you.  
Jump down to get a Scroll of the Flame Sword.  If Tokipin is still alive, 
have it destroy the gold stone pillar and you can get the black chest 
containing a red gem.  Powerup the long sword with the Earth Sword and 
destroy the small stone pillars to the south.  Go through to the next screen 
below.  Stay on this level.  Jump across the gap to the single red bush and 
go to the screen to the left.  You'll find a green bush.  Open it to find 
another gold chest containing a Scroll of Sound.  Return to the Valley of the 
Dead and head north of where you met Tokipin.  Summon Shade from the Obelisk 
and head north and then right.  Go through the doorway you opened before and 
go to the sealed door.  There is an unlit light next to it.  Summon Airl from 
the vapor spout to the left and have her activate the light to open the door.  
Head inside.

You see three dead trees, destroy the top one for a green Power Ball.  Get 
the Earth sword powerup and head south, then to the right.  Use the small 
green spring to the right to jump to a ledge with a red bush.  Open it to 
find a platform.  Hop on and ride it to the south.  Destroy the stone pillars 
you come to.  One contains a blue magic orb.  Step through with the rod to 
get the purification power.  Head north, jumping up to a level with a green 
plant bud and use the rod to make it a spring.  Jump up and race all the way 
south to the next screen.  Continue south on this screen and jump across the 
gap below.  Continue south, then across the bridge to the left and jump 
across the gap continuing left.  You'll eventually run across 4 Tiny Thymes 
on the ground.  Pick them all up quickly and race through the small hole in 
the wall to the north.  In here, you'll find a gold chest for the Scroll of 
the Dark Bow.  The obelisk will describe a new move for you with the Long 
Sword.  There's a crystal in this room.  It is used to summon Shade so you 
can use Passion to locate the hidden black chest found on top the obelisk.  
Break it open to get a white gem for Brass.  As you leave, you'll run across 
many big zombies.  You can find one of each kind of full potion in this small 
dungeon: A magic potion behind 3 fire poles, a health potion near the 
entrance on a ledge to the left and an elixir in a barrel when you extinguish 
a hidden fire post found north of the health potion.  Exit.

Ride the river down and return to town.  Break open the southeast tree to 
find a purification powerup for the rod.  Powerup and go to the house south 
of Ordan's.  Use the rod on the plant bud next to the entrance and jump up.  
Have Airl(if you don't have her, open the bush in the upper right of town to 
reveal an ice block.  Use a bomb on it to turn it to water, then another bomb 
to turn it to vapor and summon Airl from the vapor) destroy the iron box to 
get your first orange gem, called Pearls, for Airl.  Leave town and take the 
portal gate to your right as you leave and return to Shade's shrine.  Summon 
Shade from the crystal and go to the Thorn room.  Kill the smallest Thorn 
furthest to the right.  Go back to Brass's Shrine.  Summon Bawu from the 
bushes next to the robot, get the Earth Sword magic and head back upstairs.  
Go past the spirit circle, then the bush and jump down to the level below 
just beyond the obelisk to the north.  Go down those stairs.  Go to the left, 
past the save point, south through the door, and go left past the gold robot 
to the next screen.  Go south and you'll find a stone pillar in the corner on 
the level below.  Destroy it with the Earth Sword magic to reveal a gold 
chest.  This contains a scroll for the Rod of Purification.  Return to the 
entrance to the boss room of this shrine(if you didn't get the gems from the 
sound room, try to get it now, it'll be easier at this point).  Summon Brass 
from the robot to the north and then use his attack to break open the crystal 
below furthest on the upper left.  Reveal an ice block, which you can turn to 
vapor with two bombs and summon Airl.  If you activate the robot, it'll tell 
you a treasure is guarded upstream(and we already got it).  Take the portal 
to the entrance to the Coliseum.  Open the iron box to your left for another 
Scroll of the Dark Bow.  Head up the stairs to the right with Airl.  Jump on 
the ledge to your left as you reach the top of the stairs on the next screen.  
Jump on Airl and dash to the left, over the pit and you'll arrive at two 
robots.  Have Airl destroy the gold one for an orange gem.  The gray one only 
makes enemies appear.  From where you are, fall off the ledge down to the 
first floor.  Jump down to where the plants are and summon Bawu and have him 
give you the Earth Sword magic.  You need to get back up on the upper ledge 
with the pillars.  You can use the bomb jump method(by kneeling, placing a 
bomb down ad then jump as it turns yellow and it'll blow you backwards onto 
the ledge), or you can go back up to the second floor and drop down to the 
ledge again.  Get there and destroy the second pillar diagonally north on the 
right side to reveal a white gem for Brass.  Leave the Coliseum and go south 
to the next screen.  You can find another iron box on a ledge somewhere in 
the center of this area.  Use a rod of purification power to turn the plant 
bud into a spring and jump up to it.  Have Airl open it for a black gem for 
Shade(you can go to the river from the forest and get the purification power 
from Dytto, then Airl from the steam at the head of the river and return).  
Get to the highest level of the mountain in this area and travel east to the 
next screen.  Continue to have Airl and eat the Giant Ginger in the green 
chest and using your size, jump up the high ledges to your far right, then 
head north, you'll find a purple circle.  Continue north.  Ride Airl across 
the gap to a secret area above the Fire Shrine.  You'll find a gold robot to 
the north.  Have Airl destroy it to reveal a gold chest.  Open it for a 
Scroll of the Earth Sword.  Ride back across to the entrance to the Fire 
Shrine.  Head south to the next screen.  Summon Bawu and use his magic to 
give your long sword the Sword of Earth magic(press X once).  Destroy the 
boulder in the path to reveal a Scroll of Sound.

*End Preparation*

Return to town.  Enter the Water Shrine.  Summon Bawu from the plants and get 
the Earth Sword magic from him(if you don't have it).  Go up the stairs to 
the right and push the boulder north to create a step to the next level.  
Destroy the pillar to the right for a Scroll of the Earth Sword.  Continue to 
the next floor below in the shrine and go to where the boulder is flowing 
downstream with many rats.  Destroy the rock for a Scroll of Sound.  Continue 
along until you reach the room with the large crystal next to an obelisk.  
There is a hidden chest on the obelisk which contains a Sword of Earth 
powerup.  Get it(or summon Bawu and get the magic from him) and go destroy 
the rock switch near the entrance to the boss room.  A robot will walk and 
create a step for you to the next level.  Summon Brass from the robot and 
destroy the large blue crystal to the left for a black chest containing a 
green gem for Bawu.  Summon Shade from the obelisk and go up the level on the 
right via that robot and destroy the large Thorn with Shade.  Head through 
and summon Airl from the vapor spout below.  Head back up the stairs and dash 
across the gap to the left riding Airl.  There is a hidden elixir on the 
upper ledge on this side of the room.  Keep Airl and continue to the left to 
enter the Mystic Room.

I.The Mystic Room
The Mystic Room

Head north as you enter, all the way up the stairs until you get to a wall.  
Head left and ride Airl across the gap from the ledge to another with a gold 
chest.  Open it for a scroll of Flame Sword.  Continue to the left, jumping 
across the gaps, then head south.  Have Airl activate the switch for the 
door.  Don't go through, from the lamp, go right and you'll come to a black 
chest.  Open it for a black gem for Shade.  Go back to the door, go through 
and head to the right.  Enter the door you find to the north, head down the 
stairs.

Go to the right, destroying the large Chimney enemies as you go across the 
bridge.  Go down the stairs to the south and summon Airl from the vapor spout 
to the right at the bottom.  Return up the stairs and continue northeast, 
jumping across the gap and continuing right to the next screen.  You'll see a 
very large Thorn.  Blob enemies with worms will appear constantly as long as 
the large Thorn is there.  Continue going right from the Thorn and you'll 
find a purple circle below.  If you lose Airl, you can summon Bawu from the 
plant bud and open the crack next to the purple circle to reveal a steam 
spout.  Follow the path around to the right, then south to the corner of this 
room to find many soldiers guarding a gold box.  Have Airl destroy the box to 
reveal a black magic orb.  Step through with the bow for the Dark Bows.  
These kill the blob enemies in one shot, so take them out and return to the 
Thorn and kill it(you'll get an elixir for your trouble).  Kill the remaining 
blobs, then fly directly south from there with Airl to another ledge with 
many soldiers.  Kill them and the Thorn there to find another unlit lamp.  
Light it up and then stand behind the fire post and jump on it.  You'll be 
knocked back up to the black treasure chest.  Open it for a black gem.  Now 
use Airl to fly to the center of the spiked floor to find another unlit 
light.  Activate it and go back to the black magic orb.  Activate the light 
near it if you haven't already.  On the level of the black magic orb, face 
the north, you'll see the shadow of a platform over the spikes.  Fly on Airl 
over to it, then dash again to the north to a ledge.  Open the iron box for 
grapes and activate the final light with Airl.  The door will open to reveal 
a Thorn.  Kill it with the dark arrows and you'll get a black chest with a 
key.  Return to the screen where the large thorn was.

Jump down to the save point in this room if you want.  Go back across the 
bridge with the chimney enemies.  To the left, you'll find another unlit 
lamp.  Light it up to open the sealed door.  Head south and you'll come 
across a very large moverobo.  Have it face the left and use Airl to activate 
it.  Have it travel around the corner to the north.  Try to stay on the upper 
level.  When it reaches the door, jump on it and go through the locked door.  
Take out your bow and get the dark bow Power Ball Item from the red chest.  
Go to the next screen to the left.  Kill the Thorn for a fire pole.  Head 
north to the next screen.  Continue north, killing the red armored soldier.  
Jump across the spiked floor, then use Airl to fly to the bush on the ledge 
to the left from the highest north point(this bush can also be accessed by 
jumping, use good timing and you'll make it).  Lose Airl and summon Bawu.  
Open the bush to find a blue magic circle.  Recover your spirit power, then 
take out your long sword and get the Earth Sword magic from Bawu.  This way 
you don't need to use the spiked balls to destroy the stone pillars.  Ignore 
the large stone switch in the upper left corner.  This is a trap that'll 
reveal many fire enemies and activate the firebomb catapults on the next 
level.  Head to the south on the left and you'll find two stone pillars 
blocking the way.  Destroy them, and you'll see some crystals.  Use the steps 
on the right to reach the level with the catapults.  Head north, crawl under 
the ceiling and head to the right.  You'll see an ice block.  Use two bombs 
to get vapor and summon Airl.  Return to the large crystals and take the 
stairs to the left, into the next screen.  If you activate the robot, it'll 
tell you to fly north from there on a cloud.  Well, jump on Airl and dash 
north.  You'll arrive on a ledge with two platforms.  Jump on the left and 
it'll move over to the door to the north.  The door will open and you'll find 
a large red chest.  Open it for the Holy Rod, rod level 3.  Ride the platform 
back to the other, and take that one back across to the robot.  Lose Airl and 
summon Brass from the robot.  Go back to the previous screen and destroy the 
large crystals.  Go to the screen to the south.  Head south past the stone 
pillars and you'll find many zombies lurking about.  Summon Shade from them 
and use Shade to destroy the Thorns.  Return to the robot and summon Brass 
again.  Return to where you killed the Thorns.  Take the path on the right, 
you'll enter a room with many crystals.  Have Brass destroy the crystals to 
reveal recovery items and the gold crystal to contain a green Power Ball and 
a save point.  Save your game.  Powerup your sword with the Earth Sword and 
leave the room.  Take the path on the left this time and you'll encounter 
many rats with a bush up on a seemingly unreachable ledge.  Well, jump on a 
rat, then up to the ledge, it's that simple, kinda.  The rats won't be as 
cooperative, so jump on them as soon as they appear if you have trouble.  
Open the bush to find a gold chest(you can use the chest to jump up to the 
obelisk, which will tell you only the strongest sword can destroy gold 
pillars) with a Scroll of the Earth Sword.  Get it and leave.  Go back to the 
pillars you passed earlier and destroy them.  Go to the next screen.

Recover your Spirit Power with the blue magic circle below to the right.  
Head south and you'll find many zombies.  Summon Shade and head southwest.  
Go up the stairs to the next level and kill the Thorns here.  One contains 
vapor spout, another has fire, and the one to the north has a plant bud.  
Lose Shade and summon Airl.  Dash to the center platform in the room, then 
dash again to the north.  Have Airl activate the light and a robot will 
appear and make a step for you.  Lose Airl, summon Bawu from the plant and go 
to the next level.  There is a crack over by the dead Thorn roots.  Bring 
Bawu over there and have him open the crack to reveal a large water spout.  
Lose Bawu, summon Dytto and get the rod of purification magic from her.  Go 
back to where you killed the Thorn that revealed a plant bud.  Turn the plant 
bud to a spring with the Rod of Purification and jump to the next level to 
the right and go to the right screen.  You'll find a gold chest with a Scroll 
of the Earth Sword.  Go back to the large water spout.  Summon Dytto to 
extinguish the large flames to the north.  Continue to the north and you'll 
fight two gargoyles.  Defeat them and a red health circle and a blue magic 
circle will appear in their spots.  Recover your health and spirit power and 
head through the door to the north.  Go north and summon Brass from the 
armored guy, Gigas, kill him, and climb the stairs on the right to the upper 
level.  Use Brass's charged A attack to destroy the large gold crystal.  This 
reveals a green magic orb.  Powerup the long sword and destroy the large 
stone switch above and the sealed door to the left will open.  Go through and 
you'll meet many enemies.  Defeat them all and summon Dytto from one of the 
Mercury bubble creatures.  Have her extinguish the flame post in the hidden 
room to the left(you can walk through the wall to it).  It'll open the door 
to the very south.  Head on over and enter.  In this room, the door will seal 
behind you and you'll fight two large armored ghost enemies.  They'll appear... 
and disappear.  You must fight them while they're invisible.  Fight them as 
soon as they appear.  Defeat them to receive the Reharl Sword, long sword 
level 3.  Head on back to where you fought the gargoyles, recover your 
health, then go to the zombie room to the east(the room with soldiers on the 
south ledge throwing bombs at you).  To the far east, you see a gold pillar.  
Get the Earth Sword magic from the north room and destroy it to reveal a 
black chest with a key.  Get it and go back to the zombie room to the west 
via the stairs to the left.  Don't jump down to the blue circle.  Stay on 
this level and go south.  When you reach a wall, go to the right, you're back 
in the previous zombie room, but on the upper ledge with the soldiers.  Go to 
the right and you'll find a locked door.  Proceed through with the key and go 
down the stairs.

Save your game to the right, then head to the left and north.  Head to the 
right, then to the south, you'll find a vapor spout.  Summon Airl, then head 
back up and to the left.  Go south and you'll find a robot.  Have Airl 
activate it and it'll walk to the north platform.  Jump up to it and kill the 
large red treasure box enemy.  Open the chests for recovery items and a key.  
Open the iron box with Airl for a dark bow energy powerup.  Get it and go to 
the far left and south.  Kill the Thorns, but go back to the robot and summon 
Brass.  Go to the far right, then south to find two crystals.  Have him 
destroy the crystals and go to the right.  Lose Brass and return to the 
previous screen and summon Shade from the crystal that reappeared.  Go back 
to the right and head north(do not open any bush in this room, they contain 
enemies).  Standing on the ledge, jump to the platform in the northwest 
corner.  You can find a hidden chest in the center of this platform, 
containing Eyebright, which is the same as Shade's Passion for a little 
while.  Go to the far right from this point and have Shade pull the bar 
switch you'll find.  It'll raise the iron poles.  Use them to cross over to 
the gold chest in the corner.  Open it for a scroll of the Dark Bow.  Go back 
to the locked door you passed and go through.  You'll find a large red chest 
and a purple circle.  Open the chest for the Angel Bow, bow level 3.  Go back 
out of this room and to the screen to left, back to the large crystal.  
Summon Airl from the vapor spout and return.  Go past the door with the bow 
and open the bush furthest southeast.  It'll reveal a gold robot.  Have Airl 
break it open for a key.  Continue to the right to the next screen.  In here, 
you'll see several cracks to the north, but don't attempt them yet.  Jump on 
the brown rock path and follow it all the way to the highest light blue 
colored platform.  There is nothing on it, but Leon will press against 
something, meaning it is invisible.  Open the black invisible chest for a 
key.  Go to the north from there and summon Bawu from the bush and have him 
open all the small cracks nearby for good recovery items, vapor, fire and 
water.  Have him open the large crack in the center area below for a blue 
gem.  Continue southeast and you'll happen across a small pond with a few 
bushes.  Open them up and you'll find KOH, another frozen Treasure Chest 
friend.  Use the rod of purification to free him and he'll help you out for a 
while in this area.  To the north, up the stairs, you'll fight two big 
gargoyles.  Koh will help you fight them.  If Koh dies, at least he leaves 
behind an elixir.  Defeat the enemies and go through the locked door up 
ahead.  Open the large red chest for Hell Fire, bomb level 3.  You can now 
hold 30 dangerous bombs.

Return to the main room of this section of the dungeon with the large crystal 
and save point.  This time, head all the way to the left where you killed the 
two Thorns and go to the left screen.  Go to the left, past the fire post and 
up the stairs to the north.  Head right, avoiding the bombs thrown at you and 
jump across the gap to an iron ball and a bush to the north up some stairs.  
Open the bush for a blue magic orb.  Powerup the rod with the purification 
power, and go back to the iron ball.  Push it off the ledge south, then roll 
it to the right to reach the next ledge over.  Jump up and turn the bud to a 
spring and jump up to the next level with a black chest containing a key.  
Get it and go back down.  Summon Brass from the iron ball.  Go around again 
and instead of jumping the gap to where you found the iron ball, go south on 
that level and you'll find another plant bud.  Turn it into a spring and jump 
up to the next level to the north.  Head up, jump across the gap and get 
another key.  Go back to the plant bud and jump up to the left with the 
soldiers.  Kill them and open the barrels for some items.  Jump across the 
gap to the north ledge.  To the left, you'll find a hole in the wall.  Crawl 
through and you'll find a chest on top of a small dead tree that contains a 
zombie called AYAHN.  No clue what to do with it, but head south to find an 
orange gem for Airl.  Exit this room to the right, back to the main room.  
Bring Dytto with you.  Go to the save point and head directly north, you'll 
encounter 3 flame posts.  Extinguish them and head through the locked door to 
the north.  Summon Bawu from the bush and take out your long sword.  Get the 
Earth Sword magic from Bawu and destroy the large stone switch to the right, 
it'll open the door to the south.  Go through.  In this screen, defeat the 
enemies and open the chests for some items and another key.  Ignore the iron 
box, it contains a magic potion.  Go back to the room with the rock switch.  
Head north to the next screen.  On the left side of the river, if you stand 
on the ledge next to the river and jump to the left, you'll make the ledge 
and there's a key up the stairs.  Continue north, you'll fight some soldiers.  
At the end of this river are some water spouts.  Have Dytto freeze them and 
jump on them up to the black chest with a key.  Go back to the path on either 
side of the river and continue north.  Head through the locked door at the 
very top.  You'll find a purple circle and a save point.  Save your game.  
Head up the stairs and you'll get your first and second scroll of the Wind 
Rod.  Save your game if you want and head back to the previous room.  Take 
the path on the right and head south along the river.  Eventually you'll 
reach a bush with a pink Power Ball.  Step through with the rod and you'll 
powerup for the Wind Rod.  To use this, you must hold the B button, then 
release.  The rod will send wind from it and push anything in its path(the 
longer it is held, the stronger the wind is).  In the center of this river is 
a platform with a key on it, with four platforms revolving around it.  Jump 
on one of the platforms and when it's in line with the key, face the key, 
hold the B button for a second, then release.  It'll blow the key off the 
platform.  Pick it up and go to the right, up the stairs and through the 
locked door to the north.

Go past the 3 spiked balls and to the next screen.  Face the sealed door and 
use the rod to push the rat onto the switch beyond the door.  It'll open the 
door for you.  Go through and you'll fight a large soldier.  Kill him and a 
key will fall to the ground and two robots will appear and create steps for 
you to the two locked doors containing a black chest and gold chest.  You 
should have at least two keys(4 to be exact).  Open them up for an orange gem 
and scroll of the Wind Rod.  Head to the north to the next screen.  Go north 
and summon Bawu from the plant and have him open the crack a little ways 
below.  It'll reveal a key.  Go open the locked door and proceed.  In here, 
three platforms are moving back and forth across the room.  Hit the switch 
and it'll stop them all.  Try to line them all up with one another as best 
you can, then jump from each one starting from the bottom one up to the north 
ledge.  You'll find a gold robot(which contains a pink magic orb).  Head to 
the left and you'll find 3 sparks.  Still having the Wind Rod power(and Bawu 
summoned), use the force of the wind to send the sparks to the left and then 
sneak by them quickly without getting hurt.  Head south to recharge your Wind 
Rod usage, then go to the left, and south to find several iron balls blocking 
the way.  Have Bawu eat them(or jump over them) and continue south.  Open the 
gold chest on the way for a Scroll of the Wind Rod.  Below you'll find a 
Power Ball of each color.  You can summon any spirit from them as well as 
powerup any weapon with their respective color power.  Choose whichever 
spirit and power you'd like and the door below will open for you.  I'd take 
along Dytto and a Dark Bow.

Enter the room and you'll be sealed in, fighting many enemies.  You'll start 
off with many blobs with worms that will aim towards you.  Kill them in one 
shot each with the Dark Bow for an easy start.  After them you'll fight a 
large black armored ghost called Hellarm.  Take out the rod and get the 
Purification power from Dytto and kill the ghost in one shot easy.  After 
that, you'll fight several armored soldiers.  Take advantage of them and let 
them run into each other, causing damage to themselves.  Once they're all 
dead, you'll be awarded with a white chest.  Within is the final cube, the 
Purple Cube.  Head back out to all the Power Balls.  Summon Bawu to eat the 
iron balls(or, again, jump over them).  Go back and summon Dytto from the 
blue Power Ball.  Power up the Wind Rod and use it to push back the sparks.  
Go south through the door and to the right, then north to a plant bud.  Have 
Dytto give you the Rod of Purification power, then turn the plant into a 
spring.  Jump to the highest level and go north to find an orange gem for 
Airl.  Jump from the stairs back south to the ledge and continue back to the 
main room.  Go back to where you got the key off that platform in the river.

*Side Quest*

Now that you have the Wind Rod and a few scrolls for it, you can go on a side 
quest to a secret racing track reached by taking a special path found near 
the end of Shade's Shrine.  It requires a lot of backtracking obviously, out 
of the Mystic Room, out of the Water Shrine, through the portal to Shade's 
Shrine, then onward to the path.  This is optional, but it will net you 3 
more scrolls for the Wind Rod and an orange gem for Airl(if you choose not to 
attempt the side quest, skip to the End of Side Quest section of this guide 
and continue).  Backtrack your way to the Thorn room in Shade's shrine.  
Summon Shade if you don't have him, and head south past the robots, then go 
to the left.  You'll soon find a Thorn blocking the special path(the iron box 
you may see to the north contains an elixir, get it if you want).  Defeat the 
Thorn and enter.  Head up the stairs and go to the next screen on the left.  
You'll find many sleeping rats arranged in a wavey line.  A bomb will drop 
and hit them all, and then they'll all come after you.  Kill them quickly and 
head to the left.  There is a large iron pillar blocking the passage and you 
can see an iron vase behind it with a switch next to the vase.  There is an 
invisible treasure chest in the upper left corner of this room containing a 
powerup for the Wind Rod.  Get it and use the Wind Rod to push the vase on 
the switch to lower the pillar.  Head inside and you'll find a blue magic 
circle and a vapor spout for Airl.  Head north to the next screen.

You are now at the track.  No spirits needed to complete the course, all you 
need is your Wind Rod.  The race begins when you touch the boulder to the 
north.  Before you start the race, go learn the track.  It's confusing until 
you start it and learn what it's all about.  Read the small signs, they will 
point you in the proper direction the boulder should travel to avoid it 
crashing and breaking.  The race will end when you use the boulder to climb 
up to the platform in the far northeast of the track.  Once there, the time 
will stop and depending on it, an item or even an enemy will appear as your 
reward.  Before you begin, go to the right in the track.  Below the staircase 
that leads to the end(next to all the spring plants), you'll find a crack.  
Have Bawu open it up and you'll get another scroll for the Wind Rod, 3 more 
uses to help you move the boulder.  Get three more by using the Wind Rod 
toward the south while on top the boulder.  It'll fall off the ledge and 
break.  Within the rock you'll find another scroll for the Wind Rod.  Exit 
the room and re-enter.  Powerup all the uses for the Wind Rod and when you're 
ready to begin the race, don't start by falling on top of the boulder.  
Rather, jump down next to it and quickly push it to the wall to the left.  
This'll prevent it from falling off the ledge when you head south.  Jump on 
the boulder and ride it as you use the Wind Rod to direct it throughout the 
track.  Head south to the stairs, then up the stairs to the right.  You'll 
soon come to a gap with rising and lowering iron pillars on the other side.  
To cross the gap without destroying the boulder, whichever pillar you're 
going to land on, wait until the opposite is at the top.  Use the Wind Rod 
just before it starts to lower, meaning your pillar will rise.  As the 
boulder falls to it, the pillar will catch it at the right height to keep it 
intact, and if you were close enough to the ledge, it should continue rolling 
past the pillar onto the ground again.  Takes time and practice, but you'll 
get it.  Continue right, then south down the stairs, then to the left.  Go 
north under the bridge/gap you crossed, and after the bridge, head to the 
left.  At this point, go recharge your Wind Rod power and quickly return to 
the boulder.  Fine tune the boulder's direction and fit on the passage by 
pushing it, then use the rod to send it on its way.  Go north a bit, then to 
the right.  Go up the stairs to the north, then right, then south onto the 
spring patch.  Keep using the rod to get the boulder out of it to the south.  
Don't have it go off the ledge below.  Send it to the right, then north up 
the last set of stairs.  Jump on the boulder and quickly jump up the platform 
to end the race and stop time.  Depending on the time, you'll receive a prize 
or an enemy.  Sound easy, right?  Don't get discouraged if you take a long 
time to complete it once.  My first time through took 4 minutes.  Keep going 
and you'll know the tricks and get your time down a lot.  Given the number of 
scrolls, thus uses you have for the Wind Rod, you're sure to run out halfway 
through the race.  As you travel through under the bridge, then to the left, 
quickly jump up to the next level with the plant spring and jump up to go 
refill your uses for the Wind Rod.  If you have Airl and at least 4 of her 
gems(following this guide, you should have 5), you can use her summoning 
spell to replenish your uses while you travel the course.  This'll save you 
precious seconds to achieve a good time.

The game preset top score is 1:30:00.  The prizes I've discovered are a 
health potion, magic potion, Scroll for the Wind Rod and an orange gem for 
Airl.  As far as enemies go, I've only gotten rats.  Your goal should be for 
the Scroll and Gem.  To get those items...
Complete the track with a time of 1:10:00 or less to get the Gem.
Complete the track with a time of 1:10:01 - 1:20:00 to get the Scroll.

I don't know any prizes higher than the Gem, which right now is the highest 
to my knowledge.  If there is a higher prize, I don't know what it would be 
or the time for it, perhaps less than a minute.  When you've gotten what you 
need/want, you may leave and return to the Water Shrine, the Mystic Room and 
back down to the bottom floor with the four rotating platforms.

From 1:09:65 to 0:59:26 to 0:57:53 and now 0:54:81, I'm getting better with 
each try.  Takes around 25 good Wind Rod uses for a good time.  Enough for 
the important items anyway.  Plus, I got an item only after beating my 
previous top score and it was only full elixirs.  (If you get the gem first, 
your time must be between 1:10:01 and 1:20:00 to get the scroll.  You can't 
get two times below 1:10:00 to get the gem and scroll, if you're that good 
like me =D)

*End Side Quest*

From the four rotating platforms, go to the left side of the water, then 
north to find a bush directly east of a Thorn in another room.  Open it for 
an obelisk.  Summon Shade from it and head south and to the left, up the 
stairs to a locked door.  Go through.  Have Shade destroy the Thorn and 
before crawling through the hole, go back to the four rotating platforms and 
summon Airl from the vapor spout.  Return and crawl through the hole.  Throw 
a bomb onto the lamp post to light it and the door will open.  Take out your 
long sword and go to the north screen.  You'll find a red chest with an Earth 
Sword powerup.  Get it and go back to the door opened by the lamp post.  Go 
through and to the left.  Kneel and hit the rock switch below and a robot to 
the left will appear and push the large iron ball down and over the ledge, 
creating a step for you.  The double doors below will open and the bush at 
the foot of the stairs contains a portal gate that'll bring you back to the 
save point of the main room.  Climb up to the next level from the iron ball 
and hit the switch at the very top to open the double doors next to it.  
Enter and you'll find the captured villagers who will return to the 
village(supposedly).  Now, with Airl, float on her across the spiked floor to 
the left from the switch that freed the villagers.  You'll arrive at the top 
of a pillar, and from there, dash again to the left ledge.  The bush to the 
north on this ledge contains a portal to take you back to the save point of 
the main room.  You'll find a gold chest there containing a Scroll of the 
Dark Bow.  Jump on Airl and dash to the southeast quickly. You'll find a 
boulder and a platform next to it.  Jump off Airl onto the platform and 
collect the Wind Rod powerup from the chest.  Jump on the boulder and use the 
Wind Rod to the left to ride the boulder to the ledge.  Jump up and recover 
your spirit power.  Open the bush on the right for a pink Power Ball.  Equip 
the rod and get the power for Wind Rod and send the iron pot beyond the door 
across the floor to hit the small white switch to open the door.  Enter and 
(summon Bawu from the bushes first) open the left and right bushes for two 
Scrolls of the Wind Rod.  Continue north and fight a giant Titan.  Defeat him 
and go through the final locked door.  In this area, head to the north first 
and you'll come across a crack in the ground on a sort of ledge.  Have Bawu 
open it for a Scroll of the Wind Rod.  From there, head directly east to find 
another crack on the opposite side of the room.  Have Bawu open it for an 
orange gem for Airl.  Head to the north on the lowest part of this area and 
you'll meet up with Myra, who will open the door to Agito's Tower.  She says 
this will be your ultimate test and there is no turning back.  When you're 
ready, head inside!

J.The Tower of Agito
The Tower of Agito

Head up to find a save point.  Save your game.  To the upper right, you can 
find a purple circle.  You see statues of Bludgeon, your foreshadow of the 
next boss.  To the left you'll find a magic summon ball with all the spirits' 
nature.  If you need to pick up an elixir, summon Airl and take her with you.  
If not, choose your spirit and continue.  Take the stairs below you, go left, 
then north.  A Titan will fall and start a fight.  Keep following the path, 
finding some bombs in three barrels and more soldiers as you go right.  Head 
south and you'll find some stairs to your left and a hallway to the right.  
Take the hallway to a dark robot.  Have Airl destroy it for an elixir.  Head 
back to the stairs, take them and go to the door to the left.  A voice will 
pose a threat, and the door will open.  Enter.

You will fight Bludgeon.  He will remove his cape and reveal a strong long 
sword and the battle will begin.  He should be an easy defeat.  Use your long 
sword and roll attack him.  He'll punch you back if close and will send out 
his sword and try to hit you.  Keep attacking him and he'll go down.  Proceed 
through the next door.  You see a statue of Red Demon on the wall right in 
front of you.  I wonder who's next?  To your right, the path will lead to an 
elixir, with bombs and soldiers on the way.  You can find an ice block near 
the bombs that you can use to summon Dytto/Airl.  To your left from the 
previous room/battle, you can advance towards the next boss.  Follow the path 
to the south, down some stairs.  Defeat the gargoyles by the north door to 
open it, which has a blue magic circle.  Restore your spirit power and 
continue right.  You'll see a floating platform over a spiked floor(You can 
summon Bawu from the plant to the lower right at the top of the stairs and 
have him open the crack right outside the room to the blue magic circle, 
which reveals a water spout for Dytto/Shade).  Ride the platform to the next 
door.  Go to the door, it'll open, and enter.

You'll fight Red Demon.  If you time your attacks just right, you can defeat 
Red Demon without getting damaged.  Take out your long sword and roll attack 
him.  He will fall down and be stunned with each one.  If you attack him when 
he gets back up, he'll keep falling down, won't have a chance to attack, and 
it'll be an easy kill.  Once he has finished his laughter, you can start 
hurting him.  If he manages to attack, he'll slash you with his claw blades, 
and will try to jump on you.  Don't give him a chance, he can be pretty quick 
for a fat guy.  Defeat him and go through the door.  You'll see the statue of 
the third Silver Guardian along the walls.  On this floor, you'll find many 
ghosts and zombies.  The zombies are at the south section of this floor, 
while the ghosts will randomly and instantly appear where you are standing or 
heading and you'll run into them and take damage before you even notice, so 
be careful while moving if you're hurting for health.  Summon Shade from the 
ghosts/zombies and have him destroy the Thorn on the upper level to the 
southeast.  You'll find a blue magic orb(summon Dytto for health).  Powerup 
the rod and defeat all ghosts and zombies with the rod of purification.  The 
door to the right will open for you.  You can get an elixir and recharge your 
health/spirit power with the purple circle.  The Thorn at the southwest 
section of the floor holds a spirit ball for all spirits.  Choose a 
spirit(Shade or Dytto recommended) to take with you to the next battle.  When 
you're ready, head through the center north door.

You'll fight DarkWill.  He says (after admitting his own defeat?) that you 
must still face Myra before fighting Agito.  The battle will begin.  Run and 
roll attack him with your long sword.  He will disappear and clones of him 
begin reappearing in different places.  Attack them all until you find the 
real boss and keep attacking to lower his health.  He'll send out shocks to 
attack you and will create puddle and vapor enemies right where you're 
standing to inflict some good damage.  Kill him and he'll crumble to pieces, 
and the door to the next floor will open.  Proceed north.  Careful on this 
floor, there are invisible ghost knights(HellArms) that will appear from 
nowhere and attack you.  You can use Shade's Passion to see them.  To the 
right, you'll go down some stairs and notice a spike pit below.  Ride the 
platform across to the south and you'll find a blue circle.  To the north to 
the far right, you can ride another platform to a spirit ball.  Above you can 
find an elixir by jumping to the ledge from the spirit ball(summon Airl).  
Head back to where you entered the level and go left this time.  As you go 
down the steps you see a large pit to the north with a column in the center.  
Ride Airl to the center column, then jump diagonally north west or south east 
from the column and fall to the level below.  Depending on where you jumped, 
you'll land on either a scroll of the Flame Sword or scroll of the Dark Bow.  
Instead of going up the floor and jumping down again to get the other scroll, 
take out the rod and have Airl give you the power of the Wind Rod, and face 
the other scroll and blow it off the column and get it.  This'll save you 
some time.  If you don't have Airl, summon Bawu from the bush and havehim 
open the crack next to the hole for a steam spout for Airl.  Stand on the 
bush to blow off the flame sword scroll.  Go back to the top of the pit.  
This time head south through the door.  You'll enter an open room with a 
spirit ball for Brass only.  Kill the remaining ghost knights and when a bell 
rings, they're all dead.  You must summon Brass from the spirit ball.  He 
will tell you how difficult the Silver Guardian Army is, and will aid you by 
sacrificing himself to become the ultimate sword: the Altair Knife, short 
sword level 3.  The door to the north will now open.  When you're ready, head 
inside.

You'll fight Myra.  She will say that she might have loved you once, but then 
says she'll love to kill you.  She'll defend your attacks very well against 
your swords.  I found she will not block you(as much) if you jump kick her.  
Use this tactic and other fighting techniques to damage her.  She will summon 
enemies into the fight to help her.  She will also charge up an attack 
noticed by light beams that will damage you badly, as well as destroy all 
enemies on screen.  She'll move around and attack quickly, so be on your 
toes(To whom does she sound familiar?).  Defeat her and Agito's voice will 
appear and tell you her death will bring him to life.  He will laugh and the 
north door will open.  Proceed to the final floor.

There are no enemies on this floor, so take your time to recover and prepare.  
You can save your game on the white circle to the north as you enter the 
floor.  Head south and next to the stairs leading to the final boss, you'll 
find some ice.  Summon Shade and you can use his Dark Claw to open the doors 
to the left and right at the bottom of the screen.  The left will lead to an 
elixir while the right will bring you to a purple circle.  Once you're ready, 
head back to the ice ad head up the stairs.  Airl will ask to bring her with 
you to the final battle.  If you do, she'll sacrifice herself to become a 
blue circle for you to use through the final battle.  Take Airl or another 
spirit and head through the north door.

Summon Efreet from a bomb and have him give you the power of the Flame Sword.  
Head north to find the Red Sphere.  Attack and break it.  Agito will appear 
and battle will begin.   Agito is weak against the Fire Sword, so attack him 
with it.  He'll shoot out shock orbs at you to send you back.  He'll cast out 
spirit ghosts of all your spirits' natures and they'll come after you.  You 
can summon any of the four remaining spirits to help you.  He'll also send 
out an exploding path of red magic at you, which causes some good damage.  
Keep attacking him with your sword.  Try to summon Dytto if you don't have a 
spirit.  He'll also attack with four green lasers that will explode upon 
contact with you.  They're quick, so do your best to avoid them.  When you've 
defeated him, he'll explode and the Red Sphere will reappear and it'll break 
to reveal...

Enjoy the ending, you have completed Legend of Oasis!  After the credits roll 
through, you'll enter your initials and be taken to the ranking screen.  The 
game will take your time played, rank, kills, and gems collected, and list 
them in best order of the best five players, all with their unique, 
individual rank.

These are my results thus far with the game:

Time: 6H:51M:18S  WIND
Rank: 34  HUMAN
Kills: 1281  COMMONER
Items: 100%  GOLD

If you did the side quest with the rock jumping, it'll show the best time of 
the best player at the bottom of the options screen.

7.As you exit the Valley of the Dead to the right(from the large Thorn), head 
south, but don't fall down below to where the treasure box enemies are.  Open 
the bush closest to the river and you'll find Tokipin.  Release him with the

10.Location of Scrolls

The weapons you pick up still aren't enough to get through your adventure.  
As you come across special Scrolls, they can empower your weapons with 
special abilities to fight your enemies, destroy objects, activate switches 
and create paths.  Here, you will find the exact location for all the scrolls 
for the Sound Bow, Purification Rod, Flame Sword, Earth Sword, Dark Bow and

gold chest within for another scroll for the Sound Bow.

3.In the Forest of Earth, on the upper level in the underground section, 
south of the underground pond, you'll find a boulder to the north.  Roll it

6.In the Shrine of Sound, just before a save point right before the bell 
puzzle, you see a gold robot next to a bush.  Open the bush to reveal a shock 
orb.  It will travel up and down to a blue robot below.  Have the blue robot

it.  It'll destroy the gold robot and reveal a gold chest with a scroll for 
the Sound Bow.

7.In the Wind Shrine, directly south from the entrance to the next screen, 
you'll find the wind is blowing and there are 3 Chimney enemies surrounded by 
bushes.  Defeat all 3 and light all 3 lamps that appear.  A bridge to the 
left leading north will appear.  Go north and to the left screen.  You'll 
find some grass, a crystal and a crack in the ground.  Use Shade's Passion to 
see an invisible gold chest.  Break it open for a scroll for the Sound Bow.

8.From the treasure box enemy pit game east of the Valley of the Dead, travel 
south, past 3 stone pillars to the next screen.  You'll be on the upper level 
with some bushes.  Jump across the gap(stairs below) to the left and go to 
the next screen, where some ghosts appear.  You'll find a lonely bush.  Open 
it up for a gold chest containing a scroll for the Sound Bow.

Break it open with Earth Sword magic and it'll reveal a scroll for the Sound

directly to the south.  In that room is the first scroll for the Purification 
Rod.

2.In the Forest of Earth, in the underground pond area, head north and to the 
left, you'll find a plant bud.  Use the Rod of purification to make it a 
spring plant and jump up to the left and open the gold chest for another 
scroll.

3.In the Forest of Earth, where you find the Heavy Sword, on the upper level 
to the northeast, you'll find a black chest containing a key and a red circle 
to recover health.  You'll also find a gold chest for a scroll for the Rod of 
Purification.  You can get there from a pit directly south of where you'd 
find the Blue Cube.

4.In Aquaria, on the most northeastern house, there is a crack.  Have Bawu 
open it to reveal a scroll for the Rod of Purification.  Get up there via the 
plant bud after restoring it with Dytto and changing it to a spring.

5.In the mouse hole directly south of the bridge after leaving Aquaria.  
Inside, read the sign at the top, eat the cheese and a whole army of mice 
will appear and attack you.  Have Efreet defeat them for great healing items.  
Defeat them all for a gold chest with a scroll for the Rod of Purification.  
Crawl in the hole with the two Tiny Thymes revealed by Bawu from the nearby 
crack.

6.One screen south the entrance to the Coliseum, travel to the far southwest.  
You'll see up on a ledge an isolated crack.  Go to the Forest of Earth and 
get there from the save point.  Bring Bawu and have him open up the crack for 
a scroll for the Rod of Purification.

7.Upon acquiring Brass and leaving the boss room of the Shrine of Sound, head 
to the left and you'll find some large crystals guarding a room with a gold 
chest.  Have Brass break the crystals and open the chest for a scroll for the 
Rod of Purification.

8.In the Shrine of Darkness, the third level basement, in a room with a swamp 
below filled with ghosts.  After defeating a gold chest treasure box enemy, 
jump across the gap to the left on that level to find another gold chest, 
this time containing a scroll for the Purification Rod.

9.In the Wind Shrine, there is a rock switch to the southwest section of the 
small rock pathways where there are a lot of gargoyles flying around.  
Destroy the rock switch and a gold chest will fall to the earth.  Follow it 
down if you wish.  It will land in the water on the left side of the large 
Reharl statue.  Open it for a scroll for the Purification Rod.

10.In the Shrine of Sound, the room north of where you found the Fire 
Cracker, bomb level 1, there is a single stone pillar in the upper right 
corner on the lower level.  Return there with Earth Sword magic and break it.  
A gold chest will appear with the final scroll for the Purification Rod.

Flame Sword

1.In the Shrine of Sound, in the room with the electricity switches and 
robots, to the north in a hallway is a gold chest.  Open it for your first 
scroll for the Flame Sword.

2.After acquiring the first scroll of the Flame Sword, head north through a 
hallway of dead trees.  The third dead tree you destroy will contain another 
scroll of the Flame Sword.

3.The 8th tree in this same hall of dead trees will reveal another scroll of 
the Flame Sword.

4.In the Shrine of Sound, the bell timing game, if you finish with one toll 
of the bell, you'll be rewarded with a scroll of the Flame Sword.

5.From the Valley of the Dead, get up to the level with the 3 stone pillars 
to the south.  Break them all and go to the screen to the south.  You'' be 
back at the Forest of Earth with a gold chest in front of you.  Open it up 
for a scroll of the Flame Sword.

6.After opening the door with the Bar Switch with Shade's Dark Claw near an 
obelisk and very small crystal north of the Valley of the Dead, you'll find a 
lonely fire burning on the left as you enter.  Extinguish it and with Shade's 
Passion, you'd see a gold chest.  Break it open for a scroll of the Flame 
Sword.

7.In the Wind Shrine, the room right before the boss, ride the floating 
platform to the northeast.  Turn the plant bud to a spring and jump up to the 
crystal.  Use Shade's Passion to see an invisible gold chest to your right.  
Open it up for a scroll of the Flame Sword.

8.After leaving the Valley of the Dead to the right(where the large Thorn 
was), head south, but don't fall in the pit with all the treasure box 
enemies.  You must defeat them all without falling in.  You can either toss 
down bombs or use arrows to hit them and get them to come after you, or use 
Tokipin to go down and eat them up.  I'd use bombs and fight them without 
having Tokipin get in the way.  Defeat them all and remain on the upper level 
and a gold chest will appear for you down below.  Get it for a scroll of the 
Flame Sword.

9.As you enter the Mystic Room, head north until you reach a wall.  Ride on 
Airl across the gap to the left and you'll arrive at a gold chest.  Break it 
open for a scroll for the Flame Sword.

10. In the Tower of Agito, the floor of DarkWill(from his statues in the 
wall), in a sealed room accessed via a pit from the next floor up, the final 
scroll rests on top of a tall pillar to the northwest.  Get there by jumping 
from the center pillar or by using the Wind Rod to blow it down(need to stand 
on the bush or it won't work).

Earth Sword

1.In the Shrine of Darkness, the room to the northwest from the entrance, 
you'll find many crystals that contain a key and Zombies.  Below you'll find 
a locked door near an obelisk.  Open the door for your first Scroll of the 
Earth Sword.

2.In the Shrine of Darkness, on the upper level in the room with all the 
crystals on the bottom, destroy the stone pillars to the south.  Follow the 
path all the way and you'll go down stairs.  Go through the locked door and 
follow the path past two spark enemies and you'll find a gold chest on top of 
two Chimney enemies.  Defeat them for the scroll of the Earth Sword.  It is 
possible to miss this one forever, so make sure you get it first time through 
the Shrine.

3.In the Shrine of Darkness, down the stairs north of the crystal room, head 
straight to the right to find a large stone pillar with a gold chest on it.  
Break it down with Earth Sword magic to get the chest containing a scroll for 
the Earth Sword.

4.In the Shrine of Darkness, third basement floor where you find the Fire 
Bombs and find a whole bunch of trees.  If you defeat the fire spirit enemy 
quick enough, it'll lower the two iron pillars to the far right.  Go in that 
room and defeat all the amoebas and the large one named Shioshio.  You'll be 
rewarded with a scroll for the Earth Sword.

5.Just before the entrance to the Wind Shrine with the large Rock Switch and 
obelisk, go to the right.  You'll see a platform floating back and forth.  
Ride it across to find a switch to the south.  Step on it and you'll see a 
gold chest fall from the sky to down below.  Jump down after it and break it 
open for a scroll of the Earth Sword.

6.In the Wind Shrine, several screens south, you'll find some unlit lamps.  
There are five total you need to light.  Light them all up and it'll create a 
bridge for you to an isolated island with a few bushes, a crystal and a 
Reharl statue.  Talk to the statue and it'll ask for your patience.  Wait and 
do not move AT ALL for about 5 minutes, and you'll be rewarded with a scroll 
of the Earth Sword.

7.Head to the Fire Shrine, but don't enter.  Have Airl with you and ride her 
to the northeastern part above the Fire Shrine.  You'll arrive to a secret 
area with a gold robot.  Have Airl destroy it and a gold chest will appear.  
Open it for a scroll of the Earth Sword.

8.As you enter the Water Shrine, head to the right and go up the stairs and 
push the boulder forward to create a step to the upper level.  There is a 
stone pillar thee.  Break it with Earth Sword magic and a scroll of the Earth 
Sword will appear.  Summon Bawu from the grass in the pond for the magic.

9.As you travel through the Mystic Room, 2nd basement floor, you'll come 
across 3 large crystals.  Break them and go to the screen to the south.  
You'll find many Thorns ad zombies.  Summon Shade from the zombies and defeat 
the Thorns on the upper level.  Go to the screen to the northwest and you'll 
find some rats and a bush on an upper ledge.  Open the bush for a gold chest, 
which contains a scroll for the Earth Sword.

10.In the Mystic Room, 2nd basement floor, you'll see 3 large stone pillars to 
your left after destroying the crystals.  Break them and enter the screen.  
You'll find a blue circle and many zombies lurking about.  Summon Shade and 
defeat the Thorn on the upper level closest to where you entered the room.  
It'll reveal a plant bud.  Turn it into a spring and jump up to the ledge.  
Go to the right and you'll find a gold chest with the last scroll for the 
Earth Sword.

Dark Bow

1.In the Wind Shrine, the screen to the right after the Reharl patience test, 
you'll find a black Power Ball and an obelisk.  Head north from there, then 
to the west.  Go past 3 spark enemies and you'll find a gold chest and an 
obelisk describing your first scroll of the Dark Bow.

2.From where you got the first scroll of the Dark Bow, head to save point on 
that screen.  Head to the left, you'll eventually see two stone pillars.  
Destroy the southern one for a switch.  Press it and a gold chest will fall 
to the earth.  Jump down after it and it'll land next to the save point 
that's right outside town.  Open it for a scroll for the Dark Bow.

3.In the Wind Shrine, found in an iron box on a waterfall on the right side 
of the room with a purple circle.  Open it with Airl's lightning attacks, and 
you'll get a scroll for the Dark Bow.

4.In the Wind Shrine, there is an area you can attempt where you walk an 
invisible path marked by rain droplets.  Walk the two paths to the north.  
You'll soon find a rat sleeping beneath a chest(which contains cheese).  
Defeat the rat and you'll fight some armored ghosts.  Defeat them for a gold 
chest containing a scroll for the Dark Bow.

5.In the Valley of the Dead, in the upper left corner of the area, you'll 
find a Thorn on an upper ledge.  Get there by floating on Airl from a ledge 
that you would get to via a red spring.  Lose Airl, summon Dytto, have her 
turn the water to ice.  Lose Dytto, summon Shade and destroy the Thorn.  Lose 
Shade and summon Airl to activate the light that appears.  A gold chest will 
appear with your scroll of the Dark Bow.

6.After awakening Airl, go to the river and follow it all the way upstream 
until you reach a locked doorway with a light next to it.  Summon Airl from 
the steam nearby and activate the light to open the door.  Go inside and 
travel through this small underground dungeon until you arrive to 4 Tiny 
Thymes.  Eat them all and race through the small hole in the wall to the 
north.  In this room up ahead, you'll find a gold chest containing the scroll 
of the Dark Bow.

7.Enter the Coliseum with Airl and have her destroy the iron box to your 
immediate right.  It'll reveal a scroll of the Dark Bow.

8.In the Mystic Room, 3rd level basement, in the section where you find the 
Angel Bow, pull a bar switch to the right and it'll raise two iron pillars 
leading to the right.  Jump on them across to the ledge and you'll find a 
gold chest.  Open it for a scroll of the Dark Bow.

9.In the Mystic Room, 3rd floor basement of the spiked floor room west of the 
main river, float on Airl to the left from where you freed the villagers.  Go 
all the way across and you'll find a gold chest on that ledge below a bush.  
Open it for a scroll of the Dark Bow.

10.In the Tower of Agito, the floor of DarkWill(from his statues in the 
wall), in a sealed room accessed via a pit from the next floor up, the final 
scroll rests on top of a tall pillar to the southeast.  Get there by jumping 
from the center pillar or by using the Wind Rod to blow it down.

Wind Rod

1.In the Mystic Room, 3rd floor basement, in a locked room with a purple and 
white circle all the way to the north via the central river.  You'll find a 
gold chest with your first(and second) scroll for the Wind Rod.

2.You automatically get this one upon getting the first one.

3. In the Mystic Room, 3rd floor basement, after getting the Wind Rod, head to 
the four revolving floating platform room, go to the right and head north 
along that path.  You'll pass 3 spiked balls.  Fight a large soldier enemy 
and two robots will create steps to the upper level.  The right side of the 
two locked doors you passed between will hold a gold chest containing a 
scroll for the Wind Rod.

4.On your way to get the final cube in the Mystic Room, after moving 3 spark 
enemies with the Wind Rod and having Bawu eat two iron balls, you'll find a 
gold chest along the way, just before 5 Power Balls.  Open it up for a scroll 
of the Wind Rod.

5.At the race track for rock jumping, break open the rock by pushing it off a 
high enough cliff and it'll reveal a scroll for the Wind Rod.

6.At the race track for rock jumping, head to the far right of the track.  
Towards the north you'll find a bunch of springs put together to form a 
patch.  Summon Bawu from them and go to the crack to the right just beneath 
the steps of the "finish line".  Open it up for a scroll for the Wind Rod.

7. At the race track for rock jumping, you must run the course and finish it.  
You must complete the track with a time between 1:10:01 and 1:20:00 to get a 
scroll for the Wind Rod.

8.In the Mystic Room, after using a boulder to travel left over a spiked 
floor, and using the Wind Rod to activate a switch beyond a locked door, head 
through and you'll find two bushes south of a large armored soldier called 
Titan.  Each contains a scroll for the Wind Rod.

9. In the Mystic Room, after using a boulder to travel left over a spiked 
floor, and using the Wind Rod to activate a switch beyond a locked door, head 
through and you'll find two bushes south of a large armored soldier called 
Titan.  Each contains a scroll for the Wind Rod.

10.The final room of the Mystic Room, right before the Tower of Agito, there 
is a crack on the upper level of stairs on the left side.  Have Bawu open it 
up for the last scroll of the Wind Rod.

11.Unsolved Mysteries

The 7th Spirit
"[Y]ou have heard of the six Spirits.  There may be another!"
The words spoken in the instruction booklet, hinting the idea of a 7th spirit.  
I have searched every inch of the game and have come up with nothing to lead 
me to the mysterious 7th spirit.  The booklet also says your Miracle Rod can 
help unlock some of the mysteries.  In other words, the Rod of Purification, 
which you can use to release the two Chest Creatures known as TOKIPIN, found 
alongside the river and the Valley of the Dead, and KOH, found in the Mystic 
Room.  However, both of these creatures will tell you they are not an actual 
spirit when they're killed.

Another FAQ I read had the name "Balu" listed as the 7th spirit, supposedly 
the "Spirit of Life".  It's said this spirit is available only through a 
debug mode or gameshark code.  I haven't tried either method to unlocking the 
spirit, nor do I intend to, as to prove the existence of "Balu".  I don't use 
devices to alter the game.  I unlock everything legitimately.  I will 
continue the search for the legendary 7th spirit.  But, if it exists, where 
would it be on the status screen?  Would it have gems itself?  What abilities 
would it have?  And from what would you summon the spirit?

The Pink Rat and Mummies
This whole thing is simply confusion with no solution.  In the Shrine of 
Darkness, on the upper level in the room with all the crystals and stone 
pillars to the north, you'll find an open area with a small Thorn enemy in 
the upper left-hand corner of the room.  Use Shade's Dark Claw or Dark Bow 
energy to destroy the Thorn.  To my surprise when I first did this, a small, 
pink rat appeared, it almost looked like a demon.  It also has the unusual 
name of FLAG.  To my further astonishment, it talked!  I figured this must 
have some kind of significance to give it speech.  However, through my 
efforts, I haven't found any other outcome to this event.  When it's killed, 
it says its last words, and then you are overwhelmed by large zombies called 
Mummies.  I've fought them for about twenty minutes before I was convinced 
they're simply infinite.  No good has come from the act, except maybe to 
increase your kill count if you decide to fight the Mummies with fire.  I 
also learned from this rat, as you can do for all other rats in the game, is 
to stand directly behind them, on their tail, and they'll shake and cry in 
pain.  Other than that, this situation is unknown to its true meaning and 
purpose.

The Zombie Shoemaker
On your search for the gems, you'll run across this interesting section of 
the game.  In the Mystic room, bottom floor in the south western section, you 
can crawl through a hidden hole in the wall and at the end of the path you 
can find an orange gem.  But, on the path, you'll find a regular chest, 
(however, every visit to it afterwards, the chest is in a gold color), on a 
small wooden pedestal, with some grass and a strange button surrounding it.  
There's also a sign that says, "Zombie Shoemaker".  Well, break open the box 
and there you go.  A small zombie emerges, the perfect size to mend your 
shoe.  However, it acts like a normal zombie and the sign now reads, "I want 
your sole, not your soul".  Hilarious.  When the zombie is killed, a piece of 
fruit appears.  Destroy the wooden pedestal and you'll get a normal orange 
fruit item, except it's like 5 times its normal size.  The grass contains 
nothing.  The button is another question.  When you step on it, it creates a 
sound Bawu sometimes makes.  Don't know its purpose or what it does or what I 
need to do with it.  Don't know what else to say about it.

The Small Robot
I came across this while on my search for the 7th spirit.  Don't know if it's 
nothing... or something.  In Aquaria, the northeastern house contains a very 
small robot(named Capa) on a desk at the top of the room.  It's similar to 
the walking robots you find throughout your adventure.  You can activate it 
by using Airl's lightning attacks.  However, the robot only stands up for a 
second, then deactivates and goes back to its original state.  Also in the 
room, is a pot.  You can summon Brass from it, as well as use Brass' sound 
wave attacks to turn it into oil.  I'm not sure exactly what you can do with 
the pot or the oil for the robot, or if there is even a connection between 
them.  There are also bomb items in the house.  They could be used to turn 
the oil into a small, yet explosive fire, or to turn the ice block found 
outside the house into water, then vapor for summoning Airl.  The only 
purpose I found for the ice block is to summon Airl(because you can use the 
rivers for Dytto) so you can destroy the iron box on one of the houses for a 
gem.  But why is it next to this house?  There must be a connection, but 
that, I don't know what it is.  I've tried many different things, some really 
weird stuff, with this and other mysteries and nothing has changed.  What 
remains hidden within each situation, what awaits us if we are to ever unlock 
the answers to these puzzles, we may never know...

But if by some miracle you have unlocked a mystery, please email me and tell 
me!!!

12.FAQ and Advice

In this section I will list some general questions about the gameplay that 
might be interesting to read through, you might run across a question with an 
answer about something you may have seen and thought about while playing.  I 
will also give some advice and a few of my thoughts following the questions.

Q: I notice these plant buds around.  What do they do?
A: They're used to create spring jumps so you can jump up to higher places.  
Cast a spell on them from the rod of purification to create the spring.  Some 
may appear dead, and you need to revive them with Dytto's healing field.  
Other times, they're there only for summoning Bawu.

Q: I see these iron boxes all around, how do I open them?
A: You must wait until you awaken the 6th spirit Airl before you can open them 
for their special items with her lightning attack.  You might not want to 
wait that long, but patience is a virtue, you'll be awarded with their items 
in due time.

Q: In the game, the first boss is named Maneek, but on the back cover of the 
case, the same boss is named Undine.  What's this?
A: I've wondered myself, and I can only guess Undine is the boss name for the 
Story of Thor 2 title, which is the same game, different version.

Q: I see stone pillars in corners and rocks in unusual places.  Why is that?
A: When you acquire the Sword of Earth power, you'll have the power to 
destroy them, so return to places where you might have seen pillars, stones 
or boulders, most of the time they contain valuable items.

Q: There's some kind of bar switch to the right of the first Reharl Statue, 
how do I activate or pull it?
A: You need Shade's Dark Claw to pull it.  There are several around Oasis 
that perform different tasks.

Q: How do I get in the two mouse holes outside Aquaria?
A: You need to eat Tiny Thymes to shrink Leon, and then crawl in.  You can 
find Tiny Thymes in the crack next to the first mouse hole south of the 
bridge to Aquaria, using Bawu to open it up.  To the east, you need to drop 
down a chest containing the Tiny Thymes from the Wind Shrine.  A mouse will 
block the hole as you go to it, so kill it first, then eat the Tiny Thymes 
and go in.

Q: What do the ice blocks do?
A: You can summon Shade from the ice, Dytto from the water if you melt it 
with bombs or Efreet, and if it's a block, and not a water spout, you can 
turn the remaining water to vapor with a bomb, and you can summon Airl.

Q: Is it possible to get Brass without getting Efreet or Bawu?
A: It is possible to enter the Coliseum without Bawu eating the large iron 
ball to unblock the entrance.  Face east and stand as close and as far west 
as possible to the iron ball and jump kick it.  It'll slightly roll to the 
right.  When it's over far enough, you can squeeze behind it and roll it 
over.  But don't waste your time if you don't have the Red Cube, as the true 
entrance won't open until you have it.

Q: How do I use my elixir or potion that I have in my inventory?
A: That item is on reserve until you pick up another potion or run out of 
health or spirit power, depending on what kind of potion you have, at which 
time, it'll be used.  It can't be used on your own by pressing a certain 
button.  Be careful, the next potion you pick up with always replace your 
previous potion if you have one.  Don't know about you, but I wouldn't want 
to replace a full elixir with a magic potion.  And you can't drop it 
temporarily to use another lesser potion you find on your journey either.

Q: I can't reach a certain ledge!  How do I jump up there?
A: Although this method isn't required to get through the game(as you can 
reach all ledges eventually), there is a way to get to certain places 
quicker.  To jump to a ledge that you can't reach, when you first have bombs, 
get next to the ledge, face away, crouch and lay a bomb at your feet.  When 
it flashes yellow, jump and the explosion will blast you backwards onto the 
ledge.  Yes, you get hurt, but it's almost nothing compared to the ability to 
get to higher places.

Q: Does Shade's vertical shadow strike help for anything?
A: I'll be honest with you, I haven't used it once yet while playing.  My 
only guess is to attack flying enemies above you that you can't reach, but I 
haven't been in such a situation with or without Shade, and if I was, I doubt 
I could even get under them to use the attack.  It might be used to reach 
items on an upper ledge, but I haven't tried and don't think it would work, 
since by then I have the Wind Rod to do it.

Q: Have you used the Sound Bow for anything?
A: As far as I'm concerned, the way I see it, it's only used as an upgraded 
bow for when fighting enemies, and I haven't used the bow much at all to 
fight enemies.  Don't know any puzzles it is needed for besides to get 
another scroll for it at the entrance to the boss room in the Water Shrine.  
Another reason perhaps this game could've, or even should've, been longer, so 
they could have incorporated more situations and puzzles for all things, like 
Shade's vertical attack.  But, to get 100%, you must get them, I guess it's 
good to have.  You'll never know when you'll need them...

Q: Do you know the major differences between all difficulty settings besides 
the fact they're easier/harder?
A: Having mastered Beyond Oasis, I first played the game on the hardest 
difficulty, thinking I would be pro here too.  I was dead wrong.  I found 
most enemies are not only stronger in all respects, but they're larger too.  
I admit I almost died when I got hit twice from a fish in the pond at the 
entrance to the water shrine.  I then went and played the game on the easiest 
difficulty for walkthrough and exploration purposes.  Enemies were small and 
weak, died in a few hits.  The intelligence may be altered as well.  Now 
having found all items, I plan to go back and play through each one and take 
careful observation to the differences.  That being so and knowing the amount 
of time it would take to accomplish such a task, the true results may not be 
for a while yet.  So far, I have found enemies will do more attacks in the 
harder settings.  I also found zombies will not laugh as much in the harder 
settings as they would in the easier difficulties.  I guess the dead has some 
certain level of respect for your skill.

Q: What does the existence of the oil have to do with anything?
A: Right now, I don't know, can't find a use for it, but it's interesting how 
the game has incorporated seemingly real life occurrences in nature through 
the spirits' special abilities.  I thought it was cool to see a shock wave 
actually turn a pot into oil by decomposing its solid structure into a 
liquid.  Throw a bomb into the oil and watch a nice fiery explosion.

Q: Does standing behind a rat do anything?
A: You can make them squeal, as if you were standing on their tail, nothing 
special, but a quick, cheap funny moment.

Q: I heard of a zombie choir?
A: Yes, it's quite entertaining that the producers put in this little fun 
easter egg.  In the Valley of the Dead, head northeast until you find a lamp-
post next to a small set of stairs leading to the left.  Set it on fire with 
a bomb/Efreet/Flame Sword and leave the area and return.  Extinguish the 
lamp, and the zombie choir will appear and will moan the tune to Frare 
Jacque(sp?).  Take a moment and listen along, lose Dytto so she doesn't 
interrupt with her bubbles.  When they're done, they'll laugh and disappear.  
You can listen each time you re-enter and extinguish the flames.

Q: And two player mode?
A: Yes, you may have a friend play along in your adventure to help you out.  
Although I consider this a one-player game and it would be considered 
cheating, you can summon your friend by pressing Z to call up the weapon 
selection screen, then hold L and press X, and release L.  A thunder of 
lightning will send your friend, who appears like a shadow of you.  You can 
use him to fight your enemies and probably even bosses for you, as an aid if 
you were to go for a low rank, but I don't know if you both share the same 
health, or if your friend can die/use your potions.  You can also use him to 
reach any items you couldn't reach on your own yet.  If you don't like your 
friend anymore, you can kill him by inputting the code again to send him 
away.

Q: Why must Brass and Airl sacrifice themselves at the end?
A: Unfortunately you can't save Brass if you do want to beat the game.  You 
can save Airl, however, simply by not bringing her to the final battle 
floor/boss room, but having the option of her being sacrificed is important.  
If you think about it, and know about the "sequel" to this game, which is 
Beyond Oasis, there are only four spirits in that game.  Certainly, this game 
had to figure out a way to "erase" the two "new" spirits before the events in 
Beyond Oasis can take place, otherwise they'd have to be there in the game.  
Certainly I wouldn't want the game to end with six, then play Beyond Oasis 
with four, questioning the absence of Brass and Airl in Beyond Oasis, 
wondering what could have happened to them in the hiatus between the eras of 
Legend of Oasis and Beyond Oasis.  Elementary, my dear Watson.

If you have a question you'd like answered and submitted here, please write 
via the address at the bottom.


As far as advice goes that I could give to any player... If you're going for 
the best ranks, search everywhere(and I mean everywhere) for the items if you 
don't wish to follow the guide verbatim(as it will get you every item), get 
as much as possible that you can find.  Kill lots of enemies, no difficulty 
there.  Run everywhere, be quick on your toes, and it helps to know what you 
need to do next than wonder around for an hour looking for a key, switch or 
staircase(like I did one time).  This'll keep your time down.  For a low 
rank, carry around a half elixir so when you die, your health isn't fully 
restored, as to prevent rank up.  Obviously don't fill your health all the 
way up.  You can't avoid your health getting restored fully after each spirit 
boss, so you'll have a few rank levels.  Work on fighting techniques and 
trying to get through the game with minimal damage.  You won't get top stats 
on your first run through.  It'll take time and experience to become a true 
Legend of Oasis Master, like it took about 4 months for me to master Beyond 
Oasis.  Good luck!


For now, that's my walkthrough guide for Legend of Oasis.  I hope it will 
help you with your adventure.  Return soon, I shall have the guide updated 
when I find time.  There is still more to come to finalize the guide.  It 
will have a spirits section, items and weapon section and an enemy and boss 
strategy section.

I can be reached via email at greengoldnd@sbcglobal.net, as opposed to the 
address in my Beyond Oasis FAQ, which reads snet.net.  That address doesn't 
exist anymore, so don't write there!  The one listed in this FAQ is always 
available and open, don't hesitate to write and discuss the game and/or my 
guide.  With sections still needing completion, if anyone wants to contribute, 
you're welcome to submit your portion and I will add it in the next update, as 
always with all appropriate credit given.  Thank you.
