CHAPTER 1: SO YOU WANNA BE A HERO, HUH?
#######################################

========================
"What is this game like?
======================== 
VK:ES is an Action RPG, if you're familiar with the term. If you're not,
basically you run around he map, interacting with NPCs and fighting monsters
just like in most Legend of Zelda games. However, you also gain experience
points, which lets you level several Jobs for Stat and Skill Pints. The game
has been compared mostly to the Monster Hunter series.

========================
"Is this game worth it?"
========================
This is a very subjective question, but it's asked a lot. The game does have
some flaws and could have used more development time to polish it up, but the
released product is still a very good game. However, keep in mind that it is
a sort of "niche" title, meaning that not everyone will find it fun. There
are a few gameplay videos on YouTube, it might be best to check them out before
you buy.

====================================
"How long does it take to complete?"
====================================
It honestly depends on how much time you spend farming for stats and/or items.
If you just ran all the way through Episodes 1 and 2, you could probably finish
it in 10-20 hours.

===============================================================
"I want to buy this game, but I can't find it anywhere!" *RAGE*
===============================================================
Unfortunately, it seem that the game has limited distribution. Online stores
such as Amazon.com are good sources of the game, however.

#########################################
CHAPTER 2: GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CHARACTER
#########################################

===============
Character Stats
===============
Strength (STR)
This affects your Attack, Hit Points, and Carry Points.

Vitality (VIT)
This affects your Defense and Hit Points.

Intelligence (INT)
This affects your Magic Attack and Magic Points

Resistance (RES)
This affects your Magic Defense and Status Resistance

Speed (SPD)
This affects your movement speed, attack speed, Accuracy, and Avoid

Dexterity (DEX)
This affects your Accuracy. The game says it also affects your weapon skill,
but no one has discovered what that means yet.

Luck (LUCK)
This affects Critical Hits, Status Apply, and Status Tolerance.


============
Battle Stats
============
R ATK/L ATK = attack stat with each currently equipped weapon.
DEF = reduces damage.
M ATK = attack stat with all magic
M DEF = defense stat against enemy magic
HIT = weapon accuracy
GUARD = affects likleyhood of reducing damage
AVOID = affects likleyhood of avoiding all damage
CRIT = affects chance to crit
APPLY = affects chance to affect an enemy with a harmful status effect
TOL = affects likelyhood your character will be affected by a harmful status
effect

HP = Hit Points (your life bar)
MP = Magic Points (used to cast magic)
TP = Technical Points (used to cast Technicals. Technicals use full bar.)
CP = Carry Points (determines how much equipment your character can carry)


========
Elements
========
Elemental ATK and DEF fall under the following 4 catagories:

Fr = Fire
Ic = Ice
Wd = Wind
Vo = Void (aka Holy)


=============
Typed Defense
=============
Weapons fall under three types of damage: Slash, Thrust, and Strike. The game
manual says these affect your Attack with that weapon type, but they actually
affect your defense when attacked by that type.

Slash/Sl DEF = Slash Defense
Thrust/Th DEF = Thrust Defense
Strike/St DEF = Strike Defense


====================
Gaining Stat Points:
====================

Every time you gain a job level you're given a certain amount of stat points
based on what your current job level is, the higher your job level the more
stat points you get to distribute.

                 Job Level    -    Stat Points

                    2-10                 2 
                   11-20	         4
                   21-30                 8
                   31-40                12
                   41-50                16


Likewise, the higher any individual stat gets, the more points it costs to
increase it.

                     Stat          Cost to Increase
                    1 - 10               1                
                   11 - 20               2 
                   21 - 30               4 
                   31 - 40               6 
                   41 - 50               8 
                   51 - 60              12 
                   61 - 70              16 
                   71 - 80              20 
                   81 - 90              24 
                   91 - 99              32 



===========
Stat Growth
===========
Unfortunately the instruction manual's descriptions of base stats are a bit
vague, so in an effort to better explain what they do, here is a breakdown
of how your attributes increase:

It is important to note that while these numbers represent trends in your
growth, they are not exact and there are some factors that are not taken into
account. The initial growth for many attributes comes at different numbers
than their growth trend so that even though certain attributes increase at
the same interval, it is at different points in the growth. 

Example: Though 6 LUCK increases APPLY, TOL and CRIT they will not increase 
at the same time.

These are only to give a better understanding of how to build your character
to fit a certain play style.  They are unsuitable for exact number planning.

Each base stat is listed followed by how many points is required to increase
an attribute and how much said attribute increases by: 

Example: 2 RES = 1 MDEF

Meaning that 2 points into Resistance will increase your Magic Defense by 1.

Strength:

1 STR = 1.4 HP
6 STR = 1 ATK

Vitality:

1  VIT = 6 HP
5  VIT = 1 DEF
6  VIT = 1 MDEF

Intelligence:

1  INT = 0.8 MP
2  INT = 1 MATK
6  INT = 1 MDEF

Resistance:

2  RES = 1 MDEF
6  RES = 1 TOL
15 RES = 1 MP

Speed: (It should be noted that Speed also increases movement, attack and
casting speed.)

1  SPD = 1 AVOID
4  SPD = 1 HIT

Dexterity:

1  DEX = 1 HIT
6  DEX = 1 APPLY
10 DEX = 1 ATK
20 DEX = 1 CRIT

Luck:

5  LUCK = 1 AVOID & 1 HIT
6  LUCK = 1 APPLY & 1 TOL & 1 CRIT
10 LUCK = 1 MATK  & 1 DEF & 1 MDEF


==============
More about CP:
==============

CP: This is your Capacity.  How much total weight you can carry.  I originally
had no intent on covering this but the question has been asked so many times
on the boards that it's slowly driving me insane.  So CP has earned it's own
little section.

"How do you raise CP?" 
Well here it is, listen closely.

The only things that increase CP are Strength and Job Level:

Strength refers in this case to your total STR: Base STR + Modifiers.
So having equipment that raises STR will increase your CP but this is
because of the Strength increase, not the eq itself.

10 Strength = 1 CP

Job Level refers to your current Job Level ONLY.  If you change your job
then your CP will change accordingly.

5 Job Levels = 1 CP

The only other factor involved is your race.  Each race has the same CP growth
rate but a different initial CP:

Human: 8
Elf: 6
Dwarf: 9
Halfling: 7

So if you're a Human with 68 base STR with a +26 modifier and are currently
a level 32 Fighter you would have 23 CP, etc.

A special note about Episode 1 skill points:
--------------------------------------------

Some of the skill points you assign in Episode 1 will carry over to Episode 2.
Below is how many points carry over:

10 = 3
6-9 = 2
1-5 = 1

So, putting 10 points in say, [Sword] in Episode 1 means your child starts
Episode 2 with 3 points in it. Putting points in unlocked skills also
means that you don't have to unlock them again.

--------------------------------------
A note about pregenerated gem effects:
--------------------------------------
Some weapons/armor drop with gems already inserted in their slots. Baines
made a post on the GameFAQs forums regarding thier quality:

"A few posts ago, I mentioned durability and gem bonus being affected by level.
I should probably say more about that.

The durability a weapon gets appears to be determined by a random modifier
thatis in turn multiplied by your level divided by 3, with fractions dropped.
Or more simply, every third level gets you a slightly higher durability. This
level bonus appears to max at level 30.

The gem bonus that weapons and armor get appears to be affected by class level
in a different fashion. It appears that you can't get a gem bonus at all from 
level 1 through 19. From level 20 through 39, you can get a bonus. I'm
guessing that this bonus maxes at +90%, but I'm not certain. At level 40, the
bonus slightly more than doubles. (You get the level 20-39 bonus doubled, plus
10%.)

I don't know if you get an even higher gem bonus at level 50, as I never
bothered to raise any one class that high. With the high bonuses that others
have reported on weapons, this might be likely though. (I am also not quite
sure that the low breakpoint is level 20. I know you get bonuses at 20, but
I'm not sure you don't get them at a slightly lower value.)

WL and AL are affected by the same level ranges that affect gem bonuses, but
this one doesn't make as much sense, because higher levels don't guarantee
higher values. Being in a higher bracket can actually cause an item to have a
lower WL and/or AL. I think class level also affects how much WL can be above
or below the weapon's base value. I don't believe I ever saw a weapon that had
+3 WL or -3 WL until after I reached level 40. (Not counting weapons that had
+1 WL gems in them, of course.)

Note that this also affects Quest Reward weapons. This means if you want to
farm early Episode 2 quests for good slotted versions of specific weapons,
you'll want to power level your character first. (On a side note, you might
have noticed that the number of items you get on a reward is random. All of
the items for a quest are pre-set, but you are only guaranteed a minimum
number, and the amount you get above that appears to be purely random.)

I wouldn't be surprised if level affects the quality of gems found set in
weapons dropped by as well, but you can't really test that. I can only speak
to the anecdotal evidence that gems on dropped weapons were terrible at the
beginning of the game, and gradually reached a point where they were almost
useful. (While the start of the game had +/-1 to a stat or creature damage,
and my highest level character finds weapons with things like +9 Void attack
and +3 Poison and the like.)"


*************
-Accessories-
*************

There are two different kinds of Accessories: Necklaces and Rings. Your
character can equip one necklace and two rings at a time. Accessories are
either obtained through crafting with Rally in Suzuri, or through Gamble Boxes.
You can equip these in the three slots to the right of your armor.

Below is a list of the accessories you can craft with Rally in Suzuri. You do
not need to have the materials in your backpack at the time of crafting, they
can all be in your storage.

Jewels
******

In this section you'll find a listing for most jewels. Each different jewel 
type is used in a different piece of equipment.  You must have an open slot 
and have the item you wish to insert the jewel in unequipped.  Jewels can not 
be removed once inserted.  To insert a jewel merely select it in your 
inventory and then select the item you wish to insert it in.  Note that the 
places listed are most likely not the only place you can get them.  Those 
listed are either the only place I've found thus far or the easiest way 
that I've found.

There is a certain variance in the values for many of the jewels found in
this game.  If I've listed it as +3 and you find one that is +5 please don't
email me telling me that it's wrong. DO email me, however, if you find a jewel
not on the list.

IMPORTANT: The values listed are not always the values that the piece gets
from them. There is some sort of secret formula with each piece of equipment
that can give a hidden boost to the gem effect.


Quartz     -     Weapon
Garnet     -     Shield
Opal       -     Head
Sapphire   -     Chest
Jade       -     Arms
Flourite   -     Legs
Ruby       -	 Waist
Amethyst   -     Accessories


This list will be given twice: once in gem type order, and once by creature
type order.

- Online Quest Reward or Black Knight 3rd Last Boss in EP2.

Note 1: works like the Samurai Mist Blade skill. This Quartz can ONLY drop
from Gamble Boxes besides Shin/Black Knight.

Note 2: In other words, you'll do more damage, your weapon durability goes
down slower, and you won't need spells to damage physical-resistant creatures
anymore. This is, in my opinion, the best Quartz in the game, and multiples
should be used when possible. This Quartz can ONLY drop from Gamble Boxes.

Note 3: According to WilliamAdams:

"[There are] 2 Types, one sells for 5,000 and adds a base of 15 pts. of
damage, the other for 6,250 and has a base of 10 pts."

CHAPTER 5: QUEST-IONS (May contain spoilers!)
#####################

This will be a work-in-progress section for a while, and will mainly deal with
quest issues.

------------------------------------------
"How do I know when my quest is finished?"
------------------------------------------
Generally, you'll get either a Quest Complete message or just the completion
sound to know when the quest is finished. Unfortunately, "defeat X enemies"
quests do not come with a counter, so you'll have to count them yourself if you
want to know your progress.

The first two missions ("Defeat 5 bunnies" and "Defeat 10 mushrooms") are
unique, however. It was my experience that no indicator appeared that let me
know I had completed the quest, but every quest after those did. Some people
have reported otherwise to me, so your mileage may vary.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
"I'm lost? Where do I go?" (AKA: "There's a portal blocking me!")
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The game doesn't always give you a clear direction regarding where to go next.
If you're lost, check your map for where you're "supposed to be," or talk with
people (especially Adrian.) Speaking of Adrian...


-----------------------------------------------------
"Why are those two dwarves blocking the path to Nolz?"
-----------------------------------------------------
Because Adrian hasn't sent you to Nolz yet. Make sure you do everything he asks
of you first.


----------------------------------------------
"How do I complete the "Pan's Flowers" quest?"
----------------------------------------------
Fight the Treants in the Phantom Marsh, Wandering Forest, and East Dhana Range.
As you fight, one of the Treants in each area will drop one of the flowers.
Obtain all three and then head back to the Surzi Guild owner.


--------------------------------------------------------------
"I want to marry Amandala, but she disappeared. Where is she?"
--------------------------------------------------------------
Go check the little "island" in the Nolz mountains, the one with the tree and
the bird enemies. She should be there.

#########################################
CHAPTER 6: WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT TO KNOW?
#########################################

This will be another work-in-progress section for a while. This will answer
miscellaneous questions.

-----------------------
"How do I play online?"
-----------------------
After a certain period in the story, online play opens up. (I am currently
unsure of the exact trigger, will fill in when I have that information.)
To play online, access the door to the left of the Guild in Vestlia. If
your Wii is connected to the internet, the online interface will come up.
Please note that online play is Friend Code Only, meaning that you must
add another player's Valhalla Knights Friend Code (different than a Wii's
Friend Code) and they must add yours to be able to play alongside each other.
You can find your Valhalla Knights Friend Code above your Friends list.

-------------------------------
The online play is so limited!"
-------------------------------
Yep. Nothing anyone can do to change that. Take comfort in the fact that at
least there IS some online play available, however.

---------------------------
What are the online quests?
---------------------------
WilliamAdams forwarded me the following list:

*Key: [quest name] --- [location] --- [objective] (quest fee/quest reward)*
Fisher's Distress --- North Mor Plains --- Hunt 10 Wild Birds (250g/2,000g)

Hero Trophy --- Castle of Ruins B2 --- Hunt 1 Giant Minotaur (600g/20,000g)

Black Disaster --- Vestlia --- Hunt 1 Thiel (2,000g/80,000g) - Dragon Eye
Dragon Heart --- Vestlia --- Hunt 1 Shin (3,500g/140,000g) - Dragon Eye

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
"How can I tell if a piece of equipment is better than what I have before I
buy it?"
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unfortunately, you can't. The comparison screen only appears when equipping
gear. However, if you pay attention to the weapon/armor's bonuses and penalties
and mentally compare them to what you're currently wearing, you can make an
educated decision. Of course, you can also always just save and then reload
if you don't like the purchase after all.

-------------------------------
"Where are all the portals at?"
-------------------------------
Portals are found in all outside areas. Upon entering a town for the first
time the portal for that town will be opened automatically.  The rest you
must find and activate by approaching and pressing "A".  Once a portal is
active it will glow blue from then on.  The portals you've opened do not
carry over between Episodes.  On screen the portals look like a small stone
fountain.  Following is a list of their locations.

North Mor Plains:  Head East directly after crossing the first bridge.  On
the left side of this path there should be a Robber ahead, the portal is
located on a small trail behind him.

South Mor Plains:  After crossing the first bridge you'll come across a 
giant rock, the portal is on the side of the rock nearest you.

East Mor Plains:  At the Northern end of the middle of this area is a broken
wall, directly South of this wall and across the gap is the portal.

Rhianos Mountains:  Located South of the entrance to Nolz on top of a series
of ledges.

Wandering Forest:  Located near the wall at the Southwestern-most part of the
area.

East Dhana Range:  Take the right path at the first fork, the portal is near
the wall in the first circular area after the fork.

West Dhana Range: Northeastern most part of the map near the entrance to
Lava Cave B1.  Portal is next to a tree.

Mid Dhana Range: On raised ledge near entrance from Necropolis.

Abyss Castle: Located to your right as soon as you exit Lava Caves.

Abyss Keep: Located in the northern part of the map near a large door.

-Credits-
*********

I would like to give credit to the following GameFAQs posters for their hard
work:

--------------
KainVermillion
--------------
This forum user gets very special recognition. My FAQ was originally meant to
"just get some info out there" while we waited for Kain to finish his FAQ.
However, it ended up growing and taking a life of it's own, so when Kain
decided to take a break from the game, he gave me the honor of the 
opportunity to incorporate his work with mine. As a result, at least half of
the information in this FAQ came directly from him, and he is considered by me
to be more of a co-writer than a contributer.

------------
Skill Lists:
------------
Shanker. Many of the items in Chapter 3 were a direct copy/paste job from
his forum posts.

Vivicloud for pointing out Burning/Freezing/Storm/Focus only increase
elemental magic damage, not weapon damage.

--------------
Crafting Lists
--------------
Lists were complied by Pdaimoah, Milon513, fairyland, dynamomaster, and
KainVermillion.

---------------
Materials Lists
---------------
Compiled by KainVermillion, WilliamAdams, Pdaimoah, rotdrachen and probably
others I forgot to mention. let me know if you should be credited in this
section.

---------
Gem Lists
---------
Lists were compiled by Ogeib, Hatemerger/Baines, 1Titanium, Rotdrachen,
WilliamAdams, Pdaimaoh, Darkwolfblade23, and many others in the community.

--------------
General Thanks
--------------
To Milon, Ogeib, and WilliamAdams (and his sister!), for proofreading.
To devention, being the first person to provide the solution to the "Pan's
Flower's" quest.
To Baines for his insight on random gem bonuses.
To e_bikeman for the skill points that carry over between episodes.
