|3 | Purpose [PRPS] |
*-------------------*
This guide will tell you how to force various rare drops by abusing the weak
random number generation method of the game.  



*------------------------------------------------------*
|4 | About this Guide/Frequently Asked Questions [FAQ] |
*------------------------------------------------------*

This guide is excerpted from my main FAQ/Walkthrough in order to compile the
information in an easy to find location.

Most of the time, the equipment is not as important as the stats of the
characters, so important stats are noted. Weapons such as the Angel arrows and
Sledgehammer, which cause status affects are generally always important if the
character with them attacks.

What you do in previous battles does not affect what happens in future
battles, though if you spent too much time in a battle you may "skip" certain
battle in the sequence (this only applies to interior areas and not the
overworld).

____________________________________/ Silver Apple - Ceodore's Tale [RNGCSA] |
Discovered on the GameFAQs forum by JGPJR79

Level Requirements :
- None!

Story Requirements :
- Must have access to Devil's Road Dungeon
- Must not have completed the Mist Cave, thus it can only be done before the
  Kain's Tale segment of the main game.

Item needs and how to get the encounter :
- Have a healthy supply of Hi-potions.
- Go to the save spot in Devil's Road.
- Save and reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Upon reloading, immediately head to the left through the teleporter.
- Take a few steps, and you should run into an encounter with a Lilith and
  2 Bloodbones.

Lilith Fight :
- Have Hooded Man or Ceodore (whoever acts first) use a hi potion on the
  Lilith.
- Just attack until the 2 Bloodbones are destroyed.
- Silver Apple drops.
- Return through the transporter.
- Save game, reload, repeat until you have as many apples as you want.

At low levels (ie: low character speed), you may want to lower the battle
speed until you get use to entering the commands so that no enemies will
attack before you use the Hi-Potion, which will mess up the drop.

Total time required to get a silver apple : 1 - 2 minutes

_____________________________________/ Giant's Gloves - Kain's Tale [RNGKGG] |
Discovered on the GameFAQs forum by Keith_Kuruzu, some additions by me.

Equipment and Party Positioning :
3 Front, 2 Back, from top to bottom
- Ceodore: Obelisk, Diamond Shield, Diamond Helm, Diamond Armor,
           Diamond Gloves
- Rosa: Angel Arrows, Elfin Bow, Gold Hairpin, Luminous Robe, Diamond Armlet
- Kain: Diamond Shield, Dragoon Lance, Diamond Helm, Diamond Armor, Diamond
        Gloves
- (blank)
- Cid: Sledgehammer, Diamond Helm, Diamond Armor, Diamond Gloves

You don't have to have that exact equipment, the stats (especially the attack
and defense multipliers are more important.  Rosa should have the equipment
listed, though.  Angel Arrows, Sledgehammer, and Obelisk are important.

Important Stats :
 - (Attack Multiplier)  : Ceodore 9x, Rosa 6x, Cid 10x
 - (Defense Multiplier) : Ceodore 7x, Rosa 3x, Cid 2x

How to encounter the important fight :
- Change moon phase to Waning Moon.
- Save and reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Load under Waning Moon for less encounters.
- Enter the Challenge Dungeon.
- Sprint all the way to the inside of the castle. (Feel free to grab the
  respawning treasure chest outside if you want)
- Run from everything except a battle with 3 MAD OGRES.
- The battle with 3 Mad Ogres should be your 7th battle, regardless of whether
  or not you were attacked outside. (Waning Moon should help you avoid
  fighting too much outside anyway)
- For confirmation, the battle before the Ogre battle should be a Pre-Emptive
  Strike vs. 2 Coeurls and a Summoner.
- The 3 Mad Ogre battle should also be a Back Attack.
- When you get to that battle, play out the battle exactly like scripted. Just
  be quick with the timing of some of your attacks.

3 Mad Ogre Fight :
- All 3 Mad Ogres attack everyone (Farthest attacks Cid, Middle attacks
  Ceodore, Nearest attacks Ceodore)
- Kain attacks last Ogre with JUMP
- Middle Ogre attacks Cid
- VERY QUICKLY select Ceodore to attack Nearest Ogre because...
- ...Nearest Ogre will immediately attack Ceodore so after! Be quick here! >_<
- Ceodore attack against nearest Ogre goes off.
- Farthest Ogre attacks Rosa
- Rosa attacks Nearest Ogre
- Cid attacks Nearest Ogre (kills it)
- Kain's JUMP lands and hits Farthest Ogre (kills it)
- Ceodore attacks last Ogre
- Last Ogre attacks Ceodore
- Rosa attacks last Ogre (Confuses it)
- Let last Ogre kill himself
- Giant's Gloves drop.

Notes: So long as you select Ceodore to attack after the middle ogre attacks
Cid, but before the nearest ogre attacks Ceodore, it seems to work fine.
It is important that Kain be in the air after the three initial Ogre attacks,
and that he does not land until the nearest ogre is killed by Cid.

I have had an 11x multiplier on Kain whereas the above setup is for a 10x
multiplier, but it should still work, as the near ogre is the one that drops
the gloves in this battle.

Battle Order :
 -Outside-
 1 Mad Ogre, 1 Coeurl, 1 Lamia (Pre-emptive
 -Interior, 1F-
 1 Mad Ogre, 1 Coeurl, 2 Balloon
 1 Ghost Knight, 1 Coeurl, 1 Lamia Matriarch (Surprised)
 1 Sorcerer, 2 Ghost Knight (Preemptive)
 1 Storm Anima, 2 Coeurl, 1 Ghost Knight
 1 Sorcerer, 2 Coeurl (Preemptive)
 3 Mad Ogre (Back Attack)

Note that if you get the respawning chest, you will usually get a 3 Balloon
Surprise fight outside instead of the first fight listed inside.

Total time required to get the Giant's Gloves : ~5mins.

________________________/ Good Treasure - Kain's Challenge Dungeon [RNGKNCD] |
Discovered on the GameFAQs forum by squaresoft7, some additions by me

How to Trigger:
- Exit Baron
- Save and reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Immediately load the save
- Enter Baron, immediately dashing into the Inn.
- You should enter the Inn as the NPC closest to the entrance of the town
  takes his second step.  It is okay if the NPC north of the Inn also takes
  a step at this time.
- Dash up to Namingway and talk to him to enter the challenge dungeon.
- You can do anything once inside, so long as you entered the Inn at the
  proper time, the end treasure after defeating the Curse Dragon will be
  from the 'Good Treasure' list.

Notes: Originally tested on Waning Moon, but I've found that it works on any
       moon. I usually do it on Waning though and rest before the dragon to
       shift to New Moon for killing it.

       If you're having trouble with the timing, walking to the inn seems to
       generate the right amount of time.

___________________________________/ 3 Silver Apples - Rydia's Tale [RNGRSA] |
Discovered on the GameFAQs forum by Teratron

Party Positioning and Equipment:
Any Positioning works.
- Luca  : Tomahawk, Iron Shield, Horned Helmet, Horned Armor, Iron Gloves
- Rydia : Any Knife or Whip, Wizard's Hat, Mage's Robe, Silver Armlet
- Calca : Dancing Dagger, Any armors.
- Brina : Dancing Dagger, Any armors.

Important Stats :
 - (Attack Multiplier) : Luca 9x
 - Intellect           : Rydia 44-47

How to encounter the important fight :
- Go to the final save in the Sealed Cave.
- Take the north exit and dash to the rope.
- Then dash to the northwesternmost room and enter it. This room has two
  chests and two exits.
- Quicksave the game.
- Reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Quickload.
- Run around in here and run from everything except the fifth and sixth
  Lilith fights

Lilith Fight #5:
- Luca attacks either Lilith, killing it.
- Kill the remaining Lilith however you like, as long as you do it in one
  action (So that you don't skip Lilith fight #6).
- Silver Apple drops.

Lilith Fight #6:
- Rydia casts Fire on either Lilith, killing it.
- Calca (or Brina) uses Dancing Dagger on the remaining Lilith
- Brina (or Calca) uses Dancing Dagger on the remaining Lilith, killing it.
- 2 Silver Apples drop.

Lilith Fight Order:
1. Back attack
2. Preemptive
3. Normal
(about 5 non-Lilith encounters)
4. Normal
5. Normal (Silver Apple drops
6. Normal (2 Silver Apples drop)

Total time required to get the 3 Silver Apples : ~5 mins.

Notes: Make sure you do a real save sometime to avoid losing your progress.

       A few encounters past the third Lilith fight, you'll be surprised by a
       Cait Sith and three Needlehogs. You will be surprised by four bats in
       the following fight, which takes a while to run from due to Bloodfeast.
       You can avoid this fight by going up the stairs to the north
       immediately after the Cait Sith fight. Stay in this room until you get
       a Preemptive encounter against two Cait Siths, then return to the other
       room. Stay near the stairs while wandering in the northern room, as a
       Surprised fight against three bats follows soon after. If you're not
       able to make it back down the stairs before this encounter, switching
       rooms is pointless.

       In Lilith fight #6, having Luca attack a Lilith followed by using a
       Hi-Potion on the remaining Lilith is an alternate method for obtaining
       a Lilith Rod. This is the exact same fight as in Uiru's method, just
       using this equipment setup.

       If you no longer have the dolls, simply kill the second Lilith in
       Lilith Fight #6 however you like. You will only get 2 Silver Apples
       per run without them.

       If you only have one Dancing Dagger, try giving it to Brina along with
       the Clown's Clothes. She may be fast enough to get in a second Dancing
       Dagger usage before the Lilith attacks.

- Take the north exit and dash to the rope.

Notes: If you still have the dolls, make sure they are KO'd before doing this.

       You can use a Crescent Axe or Tomahawk in place of the Mythril Hammer
       and it should still work.

       You should be able to run from the first five Lilith fights and still
       have this work out.

- Save and reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)

  encounter with a Gargoyle and two Cockatrices.
- Run from all battles except this fight. It will be the 12th or 13th.

Encounter List: 
1. Soul x2, Bloodbones x2
2. Domovoi x3, Goblin x3 (Preemptive Strike)
3. Soul x2, Bloodbones x2
4. Bloodbones x1, Skeleton x3

Notes: You can generally Hi Potion at any time, since it doesn't affect

       you do need to do it, and it's better to do it before they kill you.

Important Stats:

- Intellect            : Rydia 61

How to encounter the important fight :
- Note: You'll want to keep track of time after the reset.
- Go to the final save spot in Agart Mine.
- Sleep until you get a Waning Moon.
- Save and reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Wander around on this floor to get into fights.
- The time points will be identified by the Green Dragon encounters.
- Go through the regular progression of Green Dragons (See the  green tai
  drop methods)
- You can run from all encounters.
- You will know when you are on the "Back Attack" (11th Green Dragon
  encounter, your situation may vary).
- Just run from it, and almost immediately afterwards you will get hit by the
  12th normal encounter GD. Run from it as well.
- Then just stay motionless, in order to not get hit. This was at about time
  point 0:21 from the reset. Listen to multiple loops of the cave music and
  eventually the Moon changes at 0:31 from Waning Moon to New Moon.
- From this point, start trying to get into encounters.
- You'll get the following order.
  1st: Ettin Snakes and Naga (Run)
  2nd: Mindflayer, Cait Sith, Ogre (Fight, do drop)
       - Fight this one by casting Bio on all and then attacking with Luca, to
         be safe. It won't drop the summon.
  3rd-7th: Trash encounters (Run)
  8th or 9th encounter: Mindflayer, Cait Sith, Ogre (Surprise) (FIGHT!)

Mindflayer Group Fight : 
- Enemies all attack
- Cast Bio on the whole group with Rydia
- Luca attacks the Ogre to kill it.
- Mindflayer Summon drops.

Notes: Giant's Gloves aren't really needed since Rydia kills the Mindflayer
       before Luca gets to attack.

- For Green Dragons, use Bomb with Rydia and then Attack with Luca and then
  finish it off with Luca if it doesn't die, to save MP.
- Use 4 Tents every 10 Green dragons to keep track (not strictly required)
  This'll keep it as a Waning Moon.

  will be a Back Attack. This is the summon drop fight.

Mindflayer Group Fight : 
- Cast Bio on the whole group with Rydia
- Luca attacks the Ogre to kill it.

       It can be done as part of Green Tail (Method 2) farming.  In that case,
       go down to Green Tail section and start that method first and continue

How to Trigger:
- Exit Agart
- Save and reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Immediately load the save
- Enter Agart while holding the dash button and do the following:
  - Dash north until just below the stairs
  - Dash east until you can't
  - Dash one square north
  - Dash one square east
  - Dash north until you are even with the square below Namingway.
  - Dash west until you are next to Namingway
- Once you reach Namingway, the nearby man should be one space away from
  Namingway's house. As soon as this man steps next to Namingway's house,
  talk to Namingway. It is okay if a lady further to the south moves at the
  same time. It takes about one second after reaching Namingway for this to
  happen.
- Enter the dungeon by saying Yes to Namingway.
- You can do anything once inside, so long as you entered the Inn at the
  proper time, the end treasure after defeating the Gobbys will be from the
  'Good Treasure' list.

Notes: Originally found on Waning Moon. I have since tested and found that it
       works on any moon.

      a status effect) so long as her attack multiplier is 11x.

- Monk B   Any!
- Ursula   Any!

Important stats:
- Enough levels and attack power to kill the Liliths with the second kick.

How to encounter the important fight:
- Start at the very first save point in the forest.
- Save and reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Load the save and walk straight up and to the right into the next area
  (depending on how direct your route is from the save point, you'll get a
  Gator encounter which you can just kick through to win).
- Once in the next area, run around getting into battles.
- Run from every battle that does not consist of 3 Gator enemies, or a group
  of enemies including a Lilith.
- When you do fight those enemies, quickly choose Kick for both Yang and
  Ursula in their default fighting order for that particular battle. Once you
  come across a preemptive battle against a solo Lilith, she will drop the
  Lilith Rod. Use the same method to finish her off as well.

Note that you can pretty much equip anything so long as the second kick kills
the Lilith.

How to encounter the important fight:
- Go to the save point in the Impact Crater (Middle Wall)
- Rest until New Moon
- Save and reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Run down to where the tombstone on the Floor of the Impact Crater.
- On the way down, all the battles should be against Splashers and Killer
  Fish.
- When you’re down by the tombstone, run from everything but Red Dragons.
- The fight we’re looking for is the 17th Red Dragon, which is a Normal fight.
- Kill the other dragons however you want.

Red Dragon Battle Order:    Possible Alternate Order:
1:  Normal                  1-10: Same
2:  Preemptive
3:  Surprised
4:  Preemptive
5:  Surprised
6:  Preemptive or Normal
7:  Surprised
8:  Normal
9:  Preemptive
10: Back Attack
11: Preemptive              11. Normal
12: Back Attack             12. Preemptive
13: Preemptive              12. Normal
14: Normal                  14. Preemptive

16: Preemptive
17: Normal (Red Tail)

17th Red Dragon Fight (Normal):
- Ursula Attack
- Yang Attack
- Red Dragon attacks Ursula (this is a hint that you're on the right dragon)
- Ursula Tenketsu (Weak Element Struck) (Should finish before Yang attacks)
- Yang Attack
- Ursula Attack, kills Red Dragon
- Red Tail drops.

Total time required to get Red Tail : ~23 minutes

Notes: * I recommend you kill all normal dragon fights the same way.
       * It is possible that you will skip some of the fights in the list
         depending on how long you take to kill the dragons.
       * Make sure your party position is correct! Normally Yang is in the
         top front slot, but for this method, you need him in the bottom front
         slot and Ursula in the top!
       * After the Back Attack at number 10, the turn order can vary quite a
         bit since there are dragon encounters packed close together. You may
         end up skipping some, or splicing in some fights from the alternate
         order. If you always fight the Normal fights using the method above,
         you can be sure to get the Red Tail as the Red Tail fight seems to
         reliably always show up.

Izayoi:    Any type of arrow should work, because she never attacks the
           Behemoth. Only her Defense Modifiers should matter here.
Tsukinowa: If you do not have a second Power Armlet, you can achieve the same
           attack modifiers by equipping the Kenpo Gi and Silver Armlet. The
           Defense modifier does not matter because he should never get
           attacked.

- Gekkou    : Gaia Hammer, Green Beret, Power Sash, Giant's Gloves

 - (Defense Multiplier) : Gek 3x,  Iza 4x,  Edge 4x,  Tsu 5x, Zang 3x

How to encounter the important fight :
- Go to the save point in the Cave of Eblan/Passage to the Babil
- Change moon phase to New  Moon.
- Save and reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Exit the save room and run around.
- Run from everything except battles that include the following monsters:
   * Spirit
   * Mystery Egg
   * Behemoth
- Mash the accept button when fighting any of those.
- You attack order in normal fights should be:
  Tsukinowa - Edge - Izayoi - Zangetsu - Gekkou

Sequence of Behemoths:
1. Surprise
2. Normal
3. Preemptive
4. Preemptive
5. Normal (Should be back-to back with #4)

Behemoth #5 Fight :
- Attack with all characters as their turn comes up.


Notes: I credited Biifcake and hoshe because they found that the attack order
       messed up unless they gave Izayoi the Black Cowl and Zangetsu the Steel
       Headplate instead of the other way around.

       You'll want to do the Power Sash RNG method five times and then the
       Giant's Gloves method 5 times in order to do this.

       Izayoi will get the killing drop. You probably want to use Ice,
       Lightning, or Angel arrows in order to do enough damage.

Total time required to get the Purple Tail : ~13 mins.

       Liliths in one hit with his 6x attack multiplier.

- Save at the last save point in the Lunar Face Challenge Dungeon
- Save and reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Reload and run to the previous floor.
- Run from the first two fights (which should be non-Sorcerers)
- The third fight will be a Sorcerer fight.

Sorcerer Fight:
- Cast Bio immediately with Golbez (Battle Mode: Wait, Battle Speed 6 are
  recommended in order to do this fast enough. You need fast fingers to enter
  the Black Magic menu as soon as Golbez's turn comes up!)
- Rune Staff drops.

Last Three Fights:
- 1 Arachne, 1 Hellflapper
- 1 Chimera, 1 Blood Eye (Preemptive)
- 1 Sorcerer (Rune Staff fight)

Total time required to get the Rune Staff : ~2 min

Notes : If you use the Good Treasure method, you can run all the way to this
        floor in time to catch the Chimera/Blood Eye fight.  No need to save
        at the last save point if you enter and run from everything and never
        stop dashing.

How to encounter the important fight :
- Rest until New Moon outside the northwest Lunar Cave.
- Save and reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Run from all encounters except Ebony Dragons.
- The 7th Ebony Dragon is the one we are interested in.
- You can fight the ones before it the same way.

- Ebony Dragon counters by attacking Fusoya.
- Fusoya is commanded to cast Holy on the Ebony Dragon
- Golbez attacks Ebony Dragon.

- Ebony tail Drops

Ebony Dragon Fight Order:
1: Back attack

               skipped in the order)
7: Normal. (White tail drop)

Total time required to get the Ebony Tail : ~13 mins

Notes : To save MP, after the fourth dragon, use the 'Return to Title' option
        from the Settings Menu and reload the save without resetting. This
        will keep the dragon order intact.

        If you make a single challenge dungeon run (either dungeon) and then
        run over to the northwest lunar cave, switch gear, and use cottages to
        reach the New Moon, you'll start at about the 4th Ebony Dragon fight.
        Just in case you feel like accomplishing multiple things in that
        approximately 13 minutes it takes to do this :)

How to Trigger:
- Rest until the Waning Moon.
- Save and reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Immediately load the save
- Walk (DO NOT DASH) straight towards Namingway.
  - Direct route is left to the wall, up until you're in line with him, and
    then left to him.
- Enter the dungeon by saying Yes to Namingway.
- You can do anything once inside, so long as you talking to Namingway at the
  proper time, the end treasure after defeating Kirin will be from the
  'Good Treasure' list.

Notes: This was originally found at the Waning Moon, but works on any moon
       phase.

__________________/ Good Treasure - Lunarian Challenge Dungeon #2 [RNGLNCD2] |
Discovered on the GameFAQs forum by Billmaan

How to Trigger:
- Save one step outside the Lunar Face.
- Reset the game (using the Home button on the Wiimote/Controller)
- Immediately load the save and run up into the face and onto the teleporter
- From the teleporter, quickly run down two squares, right one, up three,
  left one, then straight up into the dungeon proper.
- You can do anything once inside, so long as you entered at the  proper time,
  the end treasure after defeating Armstrong will be from the 'Good Treasure'
  list.

Notes: The exact sequence of steps isn't too important, you just need to take
       a few extra ones. If you get attacked right after you enter the dungeon
       then you didn't take enough steps.  You should get attacked a bit over
       halfway through the first room if you did this right.

       This was originally found at the Waning Moon, but works on any moon
       phase.
