Top Ten Interesting Facts

1.)  What is the easiest way to beat Barubary?

              There are two options.  You can fight him alone, then he 
has about 4,000hp, or you can fight him with the group and he has about 
5,000hp.  With the Hero, cast G Dragon.  Bring your Ap up, then cast it 
again.  Insert healings between the attacks whenever needed.  With the 
group, use HERO,KATT (Morphed), BLEU, NINA (Morphed).  Have the hero 
follow the pattern above.  Have Katt Keep.  Have Bleu cast Missile.  
Have Nina do Bolt X.  Heal intermittently.  Good Luck!  

2.)  How do I easily beat the monsters on Monster Island?

           There are four different monsters on Monster Island.  Here is 
how to beat them.

Big Gonghead:  Bow's Shot

Big Sludge: Death

Chorking: A damaging spell from a magical item.

A. Sludge: The Gold dragon will cool their jets...

3.)  Where are the Shamans?

            Below is a list of the shamans, and where to find them.

Fire:  With Granny in Captain

Water: In Nimfu's tower

Wind: In the Sky Tower 

Earth: In Farmtown after blowing up Evrai, and donating 2,000gp at the 
Namanda Shrine before blowing up Evrai.

Holy: In the dungeon of Bando after blowing up Evrai.

Devil: In the left gate of Infinity

4.)  What are the two secret spells?

               The two secret spells are Chop-Chop, and the Boombada 
spell.  Chop-Chop is found if you go to the cook in the Black Cat 
restaurant before going to Nimfu's tower.  It does less than 100dmg to 
all enemies on the screen.  The second spell, Boombada halves all of the 
enemies hp.  If you play the bells correctly in the Shrine of Namanda, 
you will receive it.

5.)  Where is the Charm Rod?

              This one is pretty easy.  It is in the dresser in the inn 
near Evrai.

6.)  Where is the Empire Sword and the Life Armor?

             The Empire Sword is in a treasure chest in a fishing hole.  
If you follow the mountain near Township a ways, with the bird, and land 
to fight, the fishing spot will show.  It is in sight of Township.  The 
Life Armor is in a treasure chest in a fishing spot near Gate.  It is 
obvious.

7.)  How do I get infinite Money?

             There is no infinite money.  But there is a very good 
alternative.  Buy three condition up's and one shrimp.  This costs 
3,020gp.  Take them to the cook in Township.  He will cook them into 
Gold Bars.  The two gold bars are each worth 6,000.  Each time you do 
this you get 8,980gp profit.

8.)  Where is the second set of Dragon Powers?

             The second set of Dragon Powers is near Simafort.  
Transform Jean into a frog and take him to the top of the waterfall, 
then attempt to ride it down.  you will land in a cave with a Socklet 
Ar, and the man gives you the second set of Dragon Powers.

9.)  How do I complete the last part of getting the Afini spell?

          When he asks who you want to sacrifice, INSIST that you would 
sacrifice your own life for the spell.  You have to prove that power 
isn't more valuable than your friends.


10.)  How can I make Township fly?

           In the basement of Evrai, when you fight the eyes, don't kill 
the old man.  He is the first part.  The second part is to go to Guntz 
and find the secret room in the back building.  There is a girl called 
Echichi.  Bring her to the well in Township.  Then Ganer will power the 
machine.

Just In!

1.)   The DmnBr is found in Infinity!

2.)   In the previous version, Unconfirmed Rumor #4 contained 
information about an HP up given to the party at the Wildcat 
restaurant.  Apparently, he gives chopchop to you if you are 
nice to him by following most of the signs and forgiving him. 
However if you don't make him happy enough, he gives an HP 
raise instead: a meal that raises team's HP by 5-10.

________________________________________________________________________

Old "Just In's"

1.)  There is an egg.  It can be won from killing birds (NOT Beaks)

2.)  There is a DmnBr.  I don't know where to find it, but I saw it on 
my friends player.

3.)  There is an item called the MEOW staff.  It can be won in infinity 
and ups attack over 100pts!!

4.)  There is an item called the ThunderST which (I Think) Does S. Boom 
when used as an item.
