|I.1 Versions|

Version 1.0: Initial release, featuring walkthrough and strategys for the
             basic Low Level Game. There may come a section for additional
             boss strategys on the lowest average game, but that's a maybe
             for now.

|I.2 History|
-------------

Well, as for history, there really isn't much to say other then that I wanted
a real challenge. I have never seen anyone try before and people deemed it
impossible. And for sure, it took me some time to manage as well - but with
some tricks it definitely works out.


----------------------------
|I.3 Definitions of the LLG|
----------------------------

There is many different types of Low Level Games out there! But for
Breath of Fire II, there is only three types of any means, as any others would
definitely be easier.

Type 1: Use Bleu and all EXP to her and Ryu
  Type one. With a level 35 character, the game becomes insanely easy. And
  even up to the point you can get her, Ryu takes all the EXP, so this still
  goes without any problems. The only hard parts are where your party members
  go solo. And that parts are all manageable (Rand's Scenario with some more
  strategy though).
  All in all, this type is not recommended. High level characters spoil the
  challenge.
  Levels are 13 for Ryu, 11 Nina, 9 Rand, 11 Sten, all others will be on
  initial level.
  Average Level:    12
  Level Difference: 34


Type 2: Minimum average level (Add all levels and divide by number
                                of characters)
  This Type gives you a quite powerful Ryu, as he absorbs nearly all EXP.
  You must have him at level 13 for a special fight either way, so he is best
  for absorbing everything in this game. Though, a level 18 Ryu VS Barubary
  is still rather OK, as with enough Items, he will steadily survive.
  This game is actually discussable in terms of challenge. Type 3 is my
  personal favorite for LLG's though.
  Your levels in this game will be 18 for Ryu, 11 Nina, 9 Rand, 11 Sten and
  all others on initial level. Calculation here is different as you will gain
  bonus EXP with levels so far off.
  As Bleu doesn't count in for average in this game:
  Average Level:    9.75
  Level Difference: 17


Type 3: Lowest difference in level with minimized average level
  THE type of LLG we looked out for. Enemies in Infinity one shotting our
  group. Endless resets for Boss fights. What do you want more?
  Your levels at the end of game will be 12-13 with this.
  Average Level:    12.375
  Level Difference: 1


This guide will discuss the Type 3 game. Boss strategys for Type 2 may come in
the future, but are delayed for now.

Also, as a additional challenge, you can decide to fight one of every kind of
enemy (as far as they don't show solo and thus would give unneccessary EXP).
This guide will also feature a basic rundown of enemies.


----------------------
|I.4 Additional Rules|
----------------------

Don't forget we want a challenge. So basically, we will have to do some
restrictions:

1) Stat Boosters, namely Dinker, GutsBL, LuckCndy, MisoSoup, PwrFood and
    Stamina, is forbidden. You may use them for cooking though.

2) Do not gain EXP by fighting random enemies. Even if you do not gain a level
    with it, winning items from this would not be allowed.

3) Items won in battles that don't fall under 2) (namely boss drops) are
    forbidden to use if they cannot be bought or cooked up. With that, you
    are allowed to use Herbs and WiseBL that drop, but things like Habaruku's
    SilverHT are not to be used.

With this sayd, it is time to look on EXP distributions.


-----------------------------------
|I.5.1 EXP For Lowest Average Game|
-----------------------------------

As I sayd, Ryu will get about all, but other characters will absorb some EXP
to minimize the average. This will be the distribution:

|I.6 About the Walkthrough|
--------------------------

The walkthrough won't navigate you through everything. I suggest you to have
maps, locations of treasure and most of common knowledge about
Breath of Fire II in mind at all times.
Other then that, the walkthrough will look like this:

Items:
LifePI:         Rangers room.
Antdt:          Second floor of Inn.

Enemies:        !E.Sludge, Leech, -Chorking, (S.Idol), *Baba

|-------------------------------- Boss Battle --------------------------------|
|Name: Baba     HP: 169              Stamina                                  |
|Formation:     Normal                                                        |
|Movement:      Baba (20), Ryu (15)                                           |
|Surviver:      Ryu 4 -> 5           Total EXP:     150                       |

|Boss strategy!                                                               |
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

This means:
Items: guess this is self-explaining.

Enemies:
!E.Sludge: This is the first time you encounter this enemy and should kill it
            once to see its HP bar.
Leech:     You should already know this enemy and see its HP bar.
-Chorking: This enemy only shows alone, so you won't be able to win without
            gaining EXP. Skip this ones at all cost.
(S.Idol)   Brackets mean this enemy is rare to encounter in this area, or
            simply doesnt show with a partner here. You are better off
            fighting it later, somewhere else.
*Baba:     This is a battle you cannot run from, but must fight.

Boss Box: This box gives information on how to handle boss fights.
Name:      Name of the enemy.
HP:        Enemy Hit Points
Item:      The item the boss can drop. Forbidden to use in most cases. In case
            of Baba, he can drop a Stamina.
Formation: The Formation you should fight in mainly.
Movement:  The order in which everyone will act. The brackets show actual
            Vigor rating. If there is more then one number in brackets for a
            name it means it may change.
Surviver:  The one character who will survive, and what level he will move to.
            In this case, Ryu will get from 4 to 5.
Total EXP: The amount of EXP gained.

Bond:      Shamans to Bond. This isn't actually neccessary, but always
            recommended.
Weapon, Armor, Shield, Helmet, Etc1, Etc2: Gear to wear.

Also note that characters are listed in order they should stand in.


-------------------
|I.7 Tips'n'Tricks|
-------------------

- Running is hard in this game. You should always have a lot of healing items
  with you to best your chances. Also, being fast helps for this as well.

- Once you attain the holy shaman, you can transform Nina. In this form, she
  can use the Banish-Ability. Have her in the last position and all others
  defend, then use it. Mostly works and makes the last part of the game much
  easier.

- Know how to cook! Having enough money to afford all gear for all characters
  is definitely great and early ShaveIce as well as WiseBL's are needed as
  well.

- Dragons are great, but don't overdo it! Always keep track of bosses HP and
  only kill your characters when you are sure to do a good finish.

Enemies:        !E.Sludge, !Hunchbak, !Gonghead, !Leech

After Prologue, go fish.
When you are ready to proceed: go fish again!
This is the best time for a while to get money.
Make sure to buy:
BronzeSD, FalseBW, 2xSuedeAR, 2xSaladBwl, 2xSteelAR
Total: 1510 Coins

Also, keep in mind that you will mostly need Items for Healing, so around
90 Herbs, 27 Antdt, 9 LifePI and 27 Smoke would be good for starters.
Also, get a few thousand Coins as Back-Up in the Bank.

After you got enough stuff, go to Mt.Fubi.


|-------|
|Mt.Fubi|

Items:
SaladBwl:       At first intersection in the caves, skip the
                 passageway and continue south.

Enemies:        !S.Goblin, !Widow, !Corpse, Gonghead, Leech, *Palo, *Peach,
                 *Puti

Have Ryu in the back Position!!
Proceed as normal (running from every battle) until the Harpys.
Note: You may want to use a Smoke after the Dragon Fountain.

|First things first: Equip Rand (IronSH and BronzeHT). Congratulations, you   |
|just got Rand his best Helmet! sigh.. Anyway, keep track about Augus HP and  |
|note that he can use Cure1. For Healing, use Unagis if you are hit for more  |
|then 40 damage, else Cure1 from either Ryu or Rand should be OK too. Just    |
|make sure to kill Ryu and Rand off when Augus HP gets low and things should  |

Now would be another good time to go fish for money near HomeTown.
Also, if you skipped the Items in TagWoods, get them now while you have three
party members.
After you are done, progress to the Ruins, HomeTown, and the Joker Hideout.

|The Spider packs quite some HP, you may want to resurrect Ryu before this    |

After this battle, I recommend looting the treasures below (using a Smoke),

|This one can be complicated. Damage each of them so they die in 1 hit. This  |

Once done, go with Ray. In the turtle room, you CAN skip another fight with
Creon. When getting off the first turtle, make sure that the Creon is to the
far left, and move up straight away. Your other characters will be used as a
bumper as the Creon only moves left-right, not up. Now time it right to get on
the second turtle and voila. Put Katt to the last position and start the fight.

|Katt and Sten are faster then Terapin, so use them as main-healers. This     |
|battle may take a while. Make sure to be healthy all the time and keep good  |
|track about his HP. Once he goes below 180, kill off your characters (or     |
|simply, don't heal them and only Katt) and after that, use your FireRock     |
|(you should still have it from Mt.Fubi) to finish Terapin off.               |
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After you finish, the Creons in this room will be gone, so get the two chests
and leave the room. Once Ray sets up the barrier, go out of the room, talk to
the first guy you see there to rescue him, then talk to Ray again. (I know,
safing one villager doesn't do anything, but why let him die if it doesn't give
any EXP to do so?) Alternatively, you can go and free as many as you can, or
even kill a villager to get the HP Bars done. If you wanna do this:
The first cave has a villager without parasite.
The second cave has 2 pathways and a Chiroru.
The right path of second cave has a creon, so skip this.
The left path is empty.
Now taking the right side from start. The one villager you see is also the only
one to reach, the other pathways are blocked. So after this, you get to a max
of 3 villagers freed. As I sayd, it really wont matter to us, as we take the
normal carpenter.

Now, back to TownShip. Have fun on the walk. You will get Cure2 spell for
someone, I suggest giving it to Nina as she can use Will in battle to replenish
her AP, but she also has the most as of now so she will make your item uses a
bit less.

Now, back to Capitan, get Sana and Granny, back to Capitan again, get the
Normal House Carpenter (the only one you can have) and buy a few WFruits
(you now got your dragon powers! So use them). Continue by boat until the..

WiseHoop:       Left Platform on 5th floor.
WiseBL:         Right Platform on 5th floor.
SokletAR:       Waterfall Cave.
KmikzeBL:       Waterfall Cave.

Enemies:        !H.Fly, !Catfish, !Stamen, !Pollen, !M.Mummy, !Ogre, !Monoped
                 !Seenates, (S.Idol), *Nimufu

Recommended Party: Sten, Ryu, Katt, Rand

Note that you can run from the battles on the opening tile and that it must be
Ryu pressing it (handsome guy stuff). What I recommend is to go through the
tower and loot everything, then fall off the tower on the right side of the
5th floor and go save again, then come back to challenge Nimufu. Though, the
tower nets pretty many battles, and the chests are mostly along the way..
so you may do another decision there.

For the 5-way-room, numbering platforms from left to right 1 to 5
Platform 1 takes you further into the tower
Platform 4 takes you to the treasure room
Platform 5 takes you to the Water Shaman (after finishing the Tower)

For the switch room, at the first 3 switches, step the center one, then step on
the single one after the gate and the center of the next set of 3. Get the
chest behind the second gate, then continue up (not pressing any other switch
at the set of 3) and make sure you don't step on the switch at the top: you can
skip it by walking near the wall. This way the last chests should be reachable
and you only need to go back to the switch at the top to open the gate to the
stairs.

Anyway, after you reach the top floor, align your party and have fun with

|She can use the devasting SwtBrth attack and put you all to sleep. Hope this |
|doesn't happen and keep your HP up because she can use Thunder magic which   |
|can be deadly. On top of having hard attacks, she can also cast Cure1 to     |
|replenish her HP. I just hope you got a bunch of Herbs or other healing      |
|Items, like Unagis, with you. Anyway, first round, use a Puppy attack with   |
|Ryu, Sten Herb on Ryu, Katt defend and Rand WFruit on Ryu. Second round,     |
|Rand Katt and Sten use Herbs while Ryu uses another Puppy attack, taking     |
|Nimufu down to below 100HP.                                                  |
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

If you have enough resources after finishing Nimufu, go and get the
Water Shaman, then leave. If not, just come back later.
Go get Jean and after that the new Dragon Powers from the Waterfall.
Don't equip the SokletAR just yet, though.
Head back to TownShip now.


|--------|
|TownShip|
|--------|

Items:
DivideBL:       Unity room.
Charcoal:       Left house of first set.
WiseBL:         Center house of first set.
1C:             Right house of second set.

Nice little town you got there! First off, loot the houses as you won't be able
to once you got the people to get in. Once done with this, head back to
Hometown and enter the building left of your old house to recruit Hekkeller
to your city. Next stop is Windia to recruit Baretta from the armory, after
that continue over to Capitan and get Leminton from the inn to join you. Now
it is time to head back to TownShip.

If you are low on coins, you can make a few GoldBars out of your Unagis (if
you still have some, that is, which you should). Cook 4 Unagi to get a GutsBL
and 2 Unagi to get a ShaveIce. Now cook 2 ShaveIce and 2 GutsBL for a GoldBar.
Do this for about 20000 Coins and have the carpenter make the city bigger.
Go in and out of TownShip a few times until you get the second set of houses,
then loot those.

Get over to HomeTown again next and recruit Hanz from the same house you got
Hekeller from. After that continue to Windia and recruit Daiye from the inn.
The last house will stay empty for a little while longer.

Now that you have Hanz, you can buy 3 CondUp's and cook them to a GoldBar at
the Carpenters. This will give you a good source of money, so make sure to get
some Coins straight away (600.000 is ok for now).
After that, go shop in your sweet little town:

Hekkellers Shop:
FlameSD, BurnKN, FireRG, FireBW, HeatST, 3xMagmaAR, 3xFlameSH
Lemintons Shop:
WonderRP, MightyAR, DemonSH
Hanz Shop:
4xD.Earing, 8xIronBR

Total: 58040 Coins

Equip the best of those to everyone. Also, get a few CondUps and buy 2 stacks
of Bait fish from Daiye.

As for Shamans, this are the combinations you can do right now:

Rand            Sana            normal
Rand            Seso            normal
Nina            Sana            normal
Nina            Seso            normal
Sten            Sana            colored
Sten            Seso            normal
Jean            Seso            normal

The best right now would be Sten and Sana as well as Nina and Seso.

After all this, go cook about 5-10 ShaveIce (Freeze in battle) which need
2 Unagi to be made.

That way, you have fire weapons and ice magic items. What can stand against you
now?!?
Once you are done, restock at Capitan (put stuff you won't need to the bank)
and save near SimaFort, then go to the

Once you get into fight with the fly for the first time, just defend. The fight
will end by itself after a few turns. Make sure you have D.Earing's equipped on

Leave the dungeon (geez, hardship) and save.
Also, RESTOCK! You probably used quite some CureAl/TearDrop for the zombie
status and as well some healing items to make running possible. Anyway, return.
In the blue roach room, you can use your characters as bumbers (placing them at
 both sides) so you won't enter any random battles and can approach the huge
roach without any problems.

|Using ShaveIce and dragons is your best bet in this fight. Keep your health  |
|up and things shouldn't take too long though. Also note that Rand is slower  |
|then Ryu, so just have him use a WFruit the same turn Ryu uses a dragon.     |

Grab the SoleSD and continue with the story. Don't forget to loot SimaFort's
special treasure room.

|HomeTown|

Items:
Cake:           Trouts treasure room.
Antdt:          Trouts kitchen.

Enemies:        *Footman, *Trout

New character, new Bonds:

Bow             Sana            normal
Bow             Seso            normal

Go to Trouts house with Bow only so you do not have to kill off
anyone. It doesn't make much difference anyway, really. Just make
sure to have Bow equipped with the best you got for him (stuff from
TownShip/SimaFort you bought in advance, in case you wondered why
you had a few spare, as well as the SokletAR and two IronBR's). Also,
use a CondUp to make things a little more fun.

|Start by casting Def-Up, then just use ShaveIce or attack (use a Medicate for|
|more damage). Done pretty fast. One thing to make sure is that you have      |
|enough money for him to steal from you or he may go berserk.                 |
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Next, go back to TownShip.
Make some more money (you will need 900.000 Coins soon, for Spar).
Also, you should cook some Biscuit (Def-UpX + CureX) which are made of
2 Dinker (which are 4 CureAl, which can be bought at SimaFort).

Also, from this point on, you can encounter Grizlys when hunting.
For that reason, try to have Bow in your party when you travel, and get a few
(eight to twenty) SprRibs as you will need them later.

After you are done, put Jean and Rand to your party and go on.

|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Continue and wake Gramps. Now that we can cross the oceans, time for some
side visits.


|-----------|
|Side Stuffs|
|-----------|

First off to Guntz

Items (Guntz):
Tolen:          Karashinikofus house.

Enemies (Guntz):
                !Cotris, !C.Sludge, !DinaFung, G.Lizard, Pollen, -S.Golem,
                  -M.Golem, (Ganet)

Shop for the following:
2x BlndedAR, 3xBlndedSH, 5xBlndedML
Total: 82000 Coins

Then, get Karashinikofu to your town, as well as Eichichi. Also buy a few
F.Spice while around, you will need them for the next boss.
Now, go on to Tunlan.


Items (Tunlan):
Vtmn:           3rd house on the left.
Tolen:          3rd house on the right.

Enemies (Tunlan):
                !Beetle, !Pima, Pollen, DinaFung, G.Lizard, C.Sludge, -S.Golem

Shop for:
2xBreathAR, 7xCrmsnRB
Total: 11650 Coins

after finishing the tour in this town, head back to TownShip and shop at
Karashinikofus:
2x KingOfDR, BirchST, PierceRP, 2xSilverAR
Total: 34100 Coins.

Now over to Bleu's room in the desert.


Items (Bleu's Room):
Tolen:          Chest in the back room.
Cond.Up:        Second dresser from left.

Enemies (north Desert):
                !Basilisk, DinaFung, C.Sludge, Pollen, G.Lizard, -S.Golem

Enemies (south Desert):
                (Cancer), (G.Idol), (Titong), (R.Guard), (RoadSlug)

after that comes to the Uparupa Caves to loot.

with the Gold from UpaCave to shop:

Maniro:
8xFastShoe, HolySF, 3xKramerBR
Total: 91000 Coins


And after that Mount Maori (the mountain with old geezer from Tunlan) you may
as well do this later, though. Only the HushRG and ThornWP are better then what
you have, and you probably won't need them too much until you come to them
story-wise anyway.

ThornWP:        First chest you come by.

Now, go get your 900.000 Coins and on to Circus at Tunlan. For getting that
money, just put all your items to HomeTowns bank, then whale-ride back to
TownShip and get all you can. After you are done, get your items again.
It's that easy!

|Bow and Rand both should equip Hekkellers flame weapons, as M.C.Tusk is weak |
|against fire. Anyway, use dragon powers twice, and wear him down. Use a      |
|F.Spice (~120 damage) to finish this. Though, he can use Cure2 rather        |
|frequent... which is highly annoying and can take you easily.                |

|In the first fight with him, only use HelpBL's and defend the 4th turn. It   |
|will end and re-encounter in phase 2. Once Phase 2 begins, use a ShaveIce for|
|about 100 damage. It won't be enough to kill him, though, so attack him to   |
|end this battle, hopefully not at cost of Sten's shaman, though.             |
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After finishing Trubo, enter the door he just did, save and drink from the
spring. Now continue the normal way. At the first junction you come to, there
go 3 ways north and one south to the east. The center and right ones to north
lead to chests, but both are useless. Though, no monsters up until here anyway,
so grab whatever you want. Continue south and to the next room. On the next
junction, go left for 1000C, then continue right. Next, you will come to the
room with 4 stairs and your party in the northern part. Continue by using the
second stairs from right. Next cradle, go south and skip the entrance along the
way. Enter the doorway at the very end for a teleport tile. You will pass the
throne room for another teleport tile and come to a room with 3 ways. Left and
right have chests, while the center way is the way you need to go. At the next
junction, the left way nets 1000C, the right continues to your party.
Now that you got your party back, switch back to defensive positions. At the
first maze room, go left, left, down, down, up and down. Second maze room goes
right, down, then left for a recovery spring and a chest with MoonMask. Now,
return to the last junction, go up, right, down, down, right, up, right and up
the stairs. You will end up in a room with 3 teleporters. Left and right lead
nowhere we haven't been to yet, so enter the center one and confront

|Magic heals it, and this DOES include item magic. SO, use dragon two times,  |
|then make sure to heal it (!!) with some weak magic (Cold from Nina is OK),  |
|then cast a 3rd dragon. His HP will be REALLY low now, so Katt should be able|
|to finish this off rather fast. Look out for Typhoon though, it can heavily  |
|damage all of your characters, yet it isn't used too often.                  |

Continue further and do NOT take the teleporter when you have the choice. After
that room, there will be two stairs. The left one nets two chests, the right
one is the way to go on, but use a WFruit on Ryu and heal up before proceeding
the steps south of the chests.

|Mount Maori|
|-----------|

Items:
MoonDrop:       NorthWest entrance to mountains.
ThornWP:        First chest you come by.
CureAl:         Second chest you come by.
FlameSD:        After waterfall, chest in the opening.
FlameSH:        After waterfall, chest above the stairs, down south.
MagmaAR:        In second opening in cave after waterfall.
HushRG:         Fall down the waterfall.

Enemies:        !Meedid, !Venusfly, !Banbhand, !Ganga, !Atlas, Pollen, C.Sludge

Recommended Party: Ryu, Sten, Katt, Spar

Go get Gedd, then come back to get the mushroom. If you did get the items
earlier, then it's just a quick rush-through (which is why I recommend Katt:
high Vigor = higher chance to run. We won't stay too long, so Spar can do all
the healing and we won't need many items). Eventually, you will reach the top
of the mountains, where mushrooms bloom (can they bloom?). On the left side is
a small island. On this island, take the far right mushroom. Once done, get the
mirror and return to Tunlan.

|Queens Body|
|-----------|

Enemies:        !Ryusight, !Pepshun, !Hemoglod, !Fatty

Recommended Party: Sten, Bow, Spar, Ryu

Note that the Fatty and Hemoglod run away, so they will not give you any EXP.
Walk around and run from battles until you find one that has ONLY those two
kind of enemies in it, then defend/heal until all of them run. Also, hope you
do not counter them to death with Ryu. You may want to take him to the back row
to lessen the chance of this. After you clear a fight, I'd suggest to go
outside (use the mirror), save, rest if needed and come back. Better then
having to walk around again after a sudden death or counter+EXP fight.
After the queen is safed, get the Therapy Pillow. Transform Spar with help of
the Water Shaman and enter a wooden dream.

Enemies:        !Jacky, !P.Eater, !RoadSlug, Rapider, *Aruhamel

Recommended Party: Ryu, Jean, Bow, Spar

Dreaded sight, seriously. The encounter rate here is horribly high, and the
enemies around here use Thunder and S.Boom so they can kill you rather quickly.
Too bad there is barely a thing to do against it other then having luck. Note
that the Old Man that escorts you for 100C will even escort you if you don't
have the money, so it is no problem if you decided to put all your money to the
bank. Proceed up, taking the chests and reach the top. If you die on the way,
but got a chest, I'd suggest to keep it like that. It's nearly impossible not
to die even with all the shortcuts.

1000C:          Go left and down from start.
GutsBL:         Second floor, cannot miss it.
IceSH:          Chest on fourth floor.
FrozenAR:       Chest on fourth floor.
NorthDR:        Chest on fourth floor.

Enemies:        !Darious, !Amonica, !Needle, !Crodworm

Recommended Party: Ryu, Sten, Bow, Spar

There's a shop down here! So buy:
IceBW, ThndrRP, 5xSokletAR
Total: 36200 Coins
Finally some more SokletAR's and no more need to switch the one you had around.
Anyway, continue down the tower for a bit to grab the treasures, then go out to
save again (if you didn't die after taking the chests, that is. With that
running, your breath can run LOW...). After this, continue up. On the 4th
and 5th floors, there are shortcuts if you pass by the far south. Continue
another floor and get Spoor. Woot, new shaman! Leave the tower, head back to
TownShip. This is what you can get now:

Bow             Spoo            normal
Rand            Spoo            normal
Rand            Sana-Spoo       normal

Nina            Sana-Spoo       colored
Nina            Seso-Spoo       colored

Jean            Spoo            normal
Jean            Seso-Spoo       normal
Spar            Seso-Spoo       Transform: Sprite

After you took what you want (I suggest Bow with Sana and Spar with the other
two, should suffice for a while), continue to FarmTown, but not before buying
a few bonus ShaveIce (~10) from Guntz.

Enemies (FogValey):

Recommended Party: Ryu, Jean, Rand, Bow

Get the gold, and go fish near CotLnd. The spot is a tad hard to reach and you
will need Jean in your party but it is worth the trouble, as you will buy
5xBraveAR, 5xMedusaSH
Total: 300000 Coins

Proceed the story, then plow the field.

|ShaveIce works well on this thing. It can cast Fireball, so you may want to  |
|equip some of Hekkeller's Armors here. It mostly defends though. Three Dragon|
|Powers and it is near finish. And besides, this thing is REALLY slow, you    |

After you finish this, you need to go to Namanda. Over there, make sure to
donate at least 20 times (2000 Coins) so you get the Earth Shaman later, then
continue with the story. Before going for the next fight, however, I highly
advice you to go back to TownShip. Go hunt and kill Grizzlys for a total of
four SprRib's, then cook those to a PanPizza. After yu got that and six
ShaveIce, shamanize Rand with Seso and Spoo, then continue.

|He may usually be hard, but with our PanPizza, he is pushover! Use the       |
|PanPizza and he will do ~20 instead of ~100 damage to Rand, making it way    |
|easy to survive and ShaveIce away.                                           |

Get out again, proceed the story and get the ability to fly!

Now, fly to Evrai and get the CharmRod from the house there. After that fly to
the island that features Night Riders and the special shop:
EmblemRP, AmberRG, 7xMotherRB, 3xHolySH, 7xSunMask
Total: 365400 Coins

After this, fly around and get all Fishable chests. You can use Urchins as
lures to get them. Also make sure to get the LifeAR and EmpireSD! And don't
forget to restock on Baits, if needed. The places to fish at are:

Isle of Giants:                 LoveBR
Near Surfys Hut:                JahAR
North end of ShowCave:          Tolen
Near Gate:                      LifeAR
North of TownShip:              IronBR
East of TownShip:               EmpireSD
Island south of TownShip:       Tolen
NorthWest of Bando:             MoonDrop

Also go check for some enemies if you wanna kill one of each:

Enemies (South Desert):
                !Cancer, !G.Idol, !Titong, R.Guard, RoadSlug
Enemies (Gate):
                G.Idol, Mamot, -M.Golem, -Cyclops, -Kimaira
Enemies (Islands west of HighFort):
                !Shupri, !Dinabehm, Ganet, G.Idol, -M.Golem

Next location: Evrai!

Items: 
Tolen:          House on right side.
WiseBL:         Claris house.
Tolen:          In a dresser after leaving the dungeon.

Enemies:        Titong, Cancer, Dinabehm, R.Guard, RoadSlug, -M.Golem, -Kimaira

Recommended Party: Ryu, Sten, Spar, Nina

Loot and proceed with the story. Fastest way out of the dungeon below is to go
into the cave right of the start and drop down, then go north and exit.
Continue to CotLand and with the story there, then to Thieves Tomb.

|ThvsTomb|

Items:
DoubleWP:       Moving holes room.

Get through this and grab the chests along the way. If possible, don't walk on
the purple faces. Though, HAVE NINA IN THE LEAD! If you fall into a trap hole
on those faces, Nina will just rise up again and thus this will not affect you.
Makes getting through much easier if you do not have to take the way multiple
times.

|Bando|

|This battle wields no EXP. Have Ryu use KingOfDR first round, Nina and Spar  |
|use Agi Down and Rand uses Cure on Ryu. Once Agi Down connects, use a dragon |
|with Ryu and get him to full HP with Rand. Next round, everyone just defends.|
|You are faster then Ray so just take it. After Etherstorm, if Ryu survived,  |
|use G.Dragon. If he died but any other of your characters is alive, LifePI   |
|Ryu (and maybe Biscuit, if you got 2 up). Hope he survives some time early.  |
|After he survives once and G. Dragon is cast, you win.                       |

After you beat the archers, fall down the left side and get the SkullBR from
below, then leave to save, restock and get Solo from FarmTown.

Now, back to Grand Church AGAIN, and through the real way at the top. Get out
by the stairway after looting (it is to the south), then save again. You can
get back in this way afterwards, so no worry about having to walk to the top
again.

North at four way intersection is a chest, west is a chest and the
way to go on.
In the room with moving platform, the platform has 9 switches. Number them
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
Then 1 and 8 will make it move down, 2 5 and 7 right, 3 and 6 left and 4
and 9 up. Now step like this to get the CrmsnCL: 7 4 5 2 1 8 9 Now, fall down,
then back up and step 7 4 5 2 8 9 to reach the stairs. In this room, heal up
after each laser if you want to keep
shamanized forms. Next boss is coming up shortly after.

|II.4 Final Stretch|

|Infinity - Part 1|

Items:
ShinyBR:        1st floor, right part of 3rd floor-part.
BusterBW:       2nd floor, right side, needs Sten to pass there.
NatureWP:       2nd floor, left side, past the stairs.
ShinyHT:        2nd floor, in the side room.
Stamina:        3rd floor, northeast.
PwrFood:        3rd floor, near stairs down.
HeroAR:         4th floor, north of stairs.
MotherRB:       4th floor, north of stairs.
CrsntSD:        4th floor, from north chests, continue west.
HolySH:         11th floor, south from start.
SunMask:        11th floor, south from start, further then HolySH.
ImortlRG:       11th floor, east from start, then a bit north.
ShadowDR:       11th floor, south of ImortlRG

I'd say, get chests until 4th floor, then go out, save again and afterwards
continue downwards.
Anyway, best way to go for all chests: At start, go right, then down the
stairs, use Sten to pass by the poles. Next floor, get the chest by passing
with Sten again, then pass the doorway and get another chest. backtrack and
use the stairway south. Now get north to grab a chest, then back up the stairs
and through the doorway, get yet another chest and use the stairs in there,
continuing south and around. Before going down to the next floor, go around
the floor again and grab the chest, then down. On the 4th floor, go north,
grab 2 chests, continue west and around the room and get the last chest of
the early floors. It's maybe a good idea to go back out if you don't have
many more items, else continue for now. The next floors are repeating, so
just continue. On the next new floor, if you go south from start you will
find 2 chests, the east way is the further one. There, grab 2 chests along
the way, and when at the next junction, east is the only way to go. Grab
another 2 chest on your way, then go south and to Dologany. Alternatively,
after grabbing the floor 4 chests, just go straight to Dologany and go
back up for the floor 11 chests after saving.


|-----------------|
|Infinity - Part 2|

Items:
Noe'sRB:        2nd floor, west junction after Anfini room.

HolyRP:         4th floor (north), south of entrance.
DragonSH:       5th floor (north), follow pathway north of teleport.
DragonAR:       6th floor (north), north of teleport tile.
DragonSD:       7th floor (north), by taking ladder from 6th floor.
DragonHT:       4th floor (south), east of entrance ladder.

Recommended Party: Ryu, Sten, Bow, Nina

First of all, get all treasures pre-Barubary.

To do so, first go west at the only junction at level 2 for a chest, then take
the east junction to proceed.
On the 3rd floor, go to the second room and west to grab a chest, then east
and through the doorway to find a ladder going to 4th floor. Note that this is
the north exit. If you skip the doorway and go further south, you will find the
south exit of the 4th floor. On 4th floor, first aim south for a chest (in a
seperate room), then go back and further west to find the stairs to the next
floor. Here, the door above the teleport tile leads to the stairs. However,
follow the path around for this floors chest first, then proceed.

Note that you should skip floor 5, 6 and 7 chests first and go save at the
pre-Barubary Dragon Statue, then get one by one. It's much safer that way.

Now approaching 6th floor. From start, a bit west is a teleport tile and north
of it this floors chest. The tile leads you directly to Barubary. After getting
the chest, go south from teleport tile and take the ladder down to 7th floor to
find the last chest on this side.

After saving downstairs, take the teleport tile to Barubary, but continue east
and go up again. Next floor, take a turn left and another floor up, where you
will find another chest. On the next floor, the way up is in plain sight, but
continue east for the last chest first. Also note that the tile to the lower
left of the chest is a trap! so approach it not using that tile or you will
have to walk further. Make your way up to Dologany again or simply cast Exit,
then go get Anfini. If you don't have Exit, you should go outside first, safe
at Gate, then get Anfini without safing. That way, you can simply die and
re-shamanize.

Now, go back up to the surface. You will need to get some more MoonDrops to
finish the game. "How do I get more?", you may ask. There is a little trick
not too well known to get infinite of them. Go to ThvsTomb. Now walk on
orange, smiling faces and you will have a chance after battle to find a
MoonDrop. It's not fast, but works nicely. Get 10-15 MoonDrops now. Next get
around 15 Biscuits and a bunch of WiseBL (Stamina (F.Spice + 2 Tuna) + 2 Tuna).

Also, for completeness of enemies, you should go fight at
Enemies (N.Rider Isle):
                !N.Rider, D.Brnger, -Cyclops
Enemies (Monster Island):
                !K.Sludge, -Chorking, -Gonghead, -A.Sludge

Your Inventory should look like this:
01) 9xHelpBL             9xHelpBL
02) 9xHelpBL             9xHelpBL
03) 9xLifePI             9xLifePI
04) 9xLifePI             9xWiseBL
05) 9xWiseBL             9xSmoke
06) MoonDrop             MoonDrop
07) MoonDrop             MoonDrop
08) MoonDrop             MoonDrop
09) MoonDrop             MoonDrop
10) MoonDrop             MoonDrop
11) MoonDrop             MoonDrop
12) MoonDrop             MoonDrop
13) MoonDrop             Biscuit
14) Biscuit              Biscuit
15) Biscuit              Biscuit
16) Biscuit              Biscuit
17) Biscuit              Biscuit
18) Biscuit              Biscuit
19) Biscuit              Biscuit
20) Biscuit              Biscuit
21) PanPizza             PanPizza
22) PanPizza             PanPizza
23) HolySF               EmpireSD
24) KingOfDR             LifeAR


Also, take your money to be able to restock at Dologany if needed (just reset
if you die, you got all the treasures already anyway). Now, from Dologany,
make your way back to the lower level Dragon Statue to have a nearby save.
It's time to meet our nightmare.

|The hardest fight this game features. With the right strategy, you got a     |
|little chance to win, though don't expect it coming your way too soon. You   |
|will easily need a few hours for this to work. BoltX is instant loss once it |
|is cast, so you hopefully are lucky. Anyway, here is what to do:             |
|First fight with Barubary, Katt starts with a Biscuit, Spar MoonDrop, Rand   |
|WiseBL on Ryu and Ryu G.Dragon. Next turn, equip Ryu with LifeAR and KingOfDR|
|before any actions. Katt goes defend, Ryu G.Dragon, Spar MoonDrop and Rand   |
|defend as well. The fight will end after G.Dragon is cast. After re-combat,  |
|as Katt is faster then Barubary, have her use a Biscuit again. Your AP is    |
|down, so have Ryu WiseBL himself, but only after Re-equipping DragonSD and   |
|LifeAR, or, if Rand and Spar still got shamans, DragonAR. Rand MoonDrop and  |
|Spar Pwr.Down on Barubary. From now on, have Rand MoonDrop and Spar WiseBL on|
|Ryu, while Ryu goes for constant G.Dragon and Katt uses a PanPizza every turn|
|until it connects to drop Barubarys attack as he some times will be able to  |
|kill our other characters. If that happens, MoonDrop them up straight away   |
|and hope PanPizza connects early. Other then that, always have one character |
|use MoonDrop and another WiseBL on Ryu. Note that Spar and Rand will become  |
|much slower once de-shamanized, and Ryu should equip the LifeAR once that    |
|happened. Ryu also should use G.Dragon whenever possible, and Katt PanPizza  |
|until it connects, after that just defend or KingOfDR on Rand, something you |
|see fit, just don't attack or this strategy won't work. After G.Dragon hit   |
|Barubary 4 times, the round you cast 5th, don't use MoonDrop. Instead, LifePI|
|Rand with Spar, Rand HelpBL, Ryu cast the 5th G.Dragon and Katt whatever. Now|
|if stuff worked out, all but Rand should be dead next turn, with Rand        |
|finishing with a use of EmpireSD. If they don't die due to some tough luck...|
|well, shit happens :) seems PanPizza was too much for you.                   |
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Now, save, get the other chests, save again. If you still have a few
Biscuits (~5), you can go on now, else you should leave and make a few more,
then come back. Though, the final battle is easier then you would expect.
Once you are ready, it's time to kill a false god

|Basically, same strategy as Barubary, but not half as deadly, just more HP.  |
|He cannot kill you (unless Death comes in) until he goes below 4000HP, which |
|is when he starts BoneLzr, which can kill everyone but Rand. This is mind,   |
|have Rand MoonDrop every turn after that point. If you don't have enough,    |
|just use Biscuits and LifePI. He usually won't be able to wipe you out even  |
|with that.                                                                   |
