-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            I. Updates
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


(9.9.08)
Version 1.0 - First version of the guide.  Partial completion on the
              walkthrough and minor progress on the sub-sections.
              Next update will include major work on the main guide
              and adding a few new sections as I complete them.

(9.18.08)
Version 1.1 - Completed the main walkthough up through the Ghasfarost area.  I
              have began filling in some of the sub-sections but they are
              skeleton versions at best.  Much more on the walkthrough as well
              as filling in the holes in the sub-sections next update.

(9.29.08)
Version 1.2 - Added a couple more areas to the main walkthrough, not a major
              update as I have been working on organizing a lot of sub-sections
              which will show up in a future update.  More on the way!

(10.02.08)
Version 1.3 - Not a ton of progress on the main walkthrough due to the maps for
              the desert and the warehouses taking so long but at least they,
              in my opinion, came out well.  Smoother sailing from now on since
              these are out of the way.

(10.16.08)
Version 1.4 - Sorry!  Car accident = lack of updates.  Just a quick one in
              this time with some minor but decent walkthrough progress.  Stay
              tuned for bigger updates next.

(10.23.08)
Version 1.5 - Progressed through the next 6 areas on the main guide.  Still
              doing a lot of sidequest stuff that isn't posted, one of these
              days it will actually show up online though.  Hopefully have the
              next update posted within a few days.  Thanks for bearing with
              me so far!

(11.04.08)
Version 1.6 - Six new areas on the walkthrough portion of the guide, the
              "Item Drops" area is now replaced with "Enemy List".  All of the
              HUMAN TYPE enemies are now posted for the Enemy List.

(12.08.08)
Version 1.7 - Couple new sections on the main walkthrough that took A LOT of
              grinding to get through.  Went back and added NOTES to all of the
              sections in which a recipe was learned to help out with making
              new recipes.  More on the enemy list, also put in the maps for
              all of the warehouses now so that is out of the way.  The final
              stage is almost done, next update soon!

(12.11.08)
Version 1.8 - WALKTHROUGH IS DONE!  Kind of.  There's still a bonus section
              but that will come in the next update.  Cleanup on the sub-
              sections begins as well as the EX dungeon.

                         II. Introduction
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Welcome to Tales of Vesperia!  Please be aware that you will have to play 
through this numerous times to get all of the achievements and special items.
Enjoy your first play through and don't stress out over missing a particular 
item or event, you can always play through again and gain everything you 
overlooked the first time.  I have tried to leave as many details as possible 
throughout the guide for getting these harder to find things in the game.  The
guide will see frequent updates so if a particular aspect of the game isn't 
detailed yet, please be patient as it will eventually make its way out there in
a future version.  If you spot anything that is incorrect or needs to be 
changed, feel free to email me about it.  You can find my contact info at the 
very top of this guide.  Hopefully this guide will be of great use to you!

                           V. Walkthrough
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


NOTE: Be sure to read these "NOTE" sections I leave throughout the guide.
      They give you guidance on how to get special items later in the game.
      Some might seem pointless but they pay off later.  As a starter, just
      remember to:

      - Save at every save point                  (Achievement)
      - Sleep at every inn                        (Plot point triggers)
      - Use Magic Lens on every enemy, make sure  (fills out your Monster Book)
        to use twice if a boss or enemy has two
        different forms during battle.
      - Watch every optional cut scene            (Achievement)

      - WEAPONS - DO NOT SELL YOUR WEAPONS!!  Here is some info regarding
                  weapons and synthing:

        1. Weapons have skills embedded in them, make sure you equip every
           weapon possible for all of your characters so that they can learn
           all of the skills in the game.
        2. Keeping weapons allows you to synthesize new ones.  Many of the
           stronger weapons you can get in the game require older weapons
           in order to make them.  Selling your item means you don't have the
           materials anymore for that weapon you wanted to make.
        3. Make sure you learn the attached skill on a weapon BEFORE you use
           it to synth a more powerful weapon.  Many times you can make a 
           "+1" variant of a particular item.  For example, your Sword can
           sometimes be made into a Sword +1.  A lot of times the +1 variant
           will have the same attched skills as the standard version, but
           sometimes it won't.  If it doesn't, you need to learn the skill
           on the old weapon first and then synth the +1.

      - There is a title which I recommend trying on your second play through
        that requires you to not use any items or synthesize anything until
        after the first chapter.  Get used to the game on your first run, then
        attempt this on your second.  If you are going for this title, set your
        party up to not use these either as they count as well, not just Yuri.


                        -------------------
                        TOWN: Zaphias (KL1)
                        -------------------


ITEMS:

1150 Gald            x4 Magic Lens
x6 Apple Gel         x4 Melange Gel
x4 Bread             x8 Orange Gel
x3 Egg               x1 Prison Key
x1 Cape              x1 Wonder Log
x3 Holy Bottle       x1 World Map


After the initial cutscene and the conversation with Ted about the blastia, you
will gain control of Yuri.  Head up the stairs behind him and into his room and
check along the bed by the window to find an Apple Gel.  Go up the steps where 
Ted ran and you'll see Hanks and other townspeople trying to keep the water 
under control.  Hanks mentions Mordio might be responsible for the troubles and 
you'll take off in search of him.  Follow the long path up to the center 
section of town and hang a left when you reach the top.  You can do a bit of 
shopping at Fortune's Market right here but there is nothing that you really 
need at the moment especially considering the limited amount of money you are 
currently carrying anyway.  Continue towards the set of stairs at the left of 
this area and you will be stopped by a mysterious voice in the wall called the
Wonder Reporter.  He gives you a special item called the Wonder Log which gives
you a synopsis of the events in the story as they happen.  Basically it's 
useful as a backstory and also to help you remember where you are in the game
if you've left off and can't recall what you were doing last.  Head up the 
steps and you'll hit a cut scene.


  After Yuri takes out the guards with some rocks to the head, take the first
  left inside the gates and you'll find that you are locked out of the house.
  Check the plant to the right of the front door to find a Magic Lens and head
  around the left side of the house and break into the window.  In the left
  fireplace is 100 Gald, the right one contains another Magic Lens.  Try to
  open the door upstairs (which is locked, of course) and you'll see a Mage
  enter carrying a blastia.  Exit the house and you will encounter Adecor and
  Boccos, two very inept imperial guards.  Run through their tutorial to learn
  about your basic battle commands and you will begin your first fight.  Focus
  on only one enemy and just keep throwing a basic attack combo coupled with an
  Artes attack.  Remember when trying to hit Boccos (the short one) that you
  can hold down on your left thumbstick to make your attacks aim lower.  Since
  he's a bit shorter in stature you'll miss some hits if you attack at a
  regular level.  Trade between attacking and blocking and you'll come out
  victorious.

NOTE: Make sure to use a Magic Lens on Adecor and Boccos in this fight.

  Regardless of the result, you'll be surrounded by guards and thrown in jail.  
  Your cell neighbor is quite the talker and as he is being escorted out of the
  area, he gives you a hint: "beneath the statue of the goddess" and a Prison 
  Key.  Inside your cell is an Apple Gel and behind the snoozing guard is a 
  Magic Lens.  Go through the open gate by his desk and you'll see a couple of
  chests right on the other side, open one up to regain all of your belongings
  and head out of the cell area.


On the bottom level but on the other side of the room are some crates 
containing a Holy Bottle.  Up the steps and right above where you first came in
the room is a pile of boxes containing an Orange Gel.  Also on this level, you
can go straight back into a room with two chests which contain a Life Bottle 
and Cape (which you should equip now).  Go to the very top level and enter the
next room where you'll encounter a young girl being chased by guards.  Defeat 
the two pawns they throw at you and the girl will accompany you.  Head into the
northern hallway and into the next area.  Enter the dining hall on your right 
and you will find an Egg in the fireplace in the first room and you can regain 
all your HP and TP by eating some of the curry in the kitchen.  Across from the
dining hall is another door that you don't need to visit at the moment so keep 
going north up the main hall and open the chest at the end to find a Life
Bottle.  Enter the doorway by the chest and you'll find an Apple Gel in a chest
and a SAVE POINT. Head south down this hall and turn into the room on your left
to find 200 Gald in a chest.  Down the main hall you'll reach Flynn's room, go 
inside and you'll encounter a psychotic enemy named Zagi.


-----------------
BOSS BATTLE: ZAGI
-----------------


NOTE: Make sure that Zagi does not attack the girl when she joins the fight!
      Secret Mission 1 depends on this.  The girl must receive very little,
      if any damage, to obtain this.

  MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON ZAGI.

  Zagi attacks a lot, my best advice is to BLOCK A LOT!  For the first round, 
  block whenever he comes at you with an attack and counter with a basic combo
  and Artes attack.  Use your Azure Edge whenever possible to keep him away 
  from you but make sure to refill that gauge with basic attacks.  In case you
  get backed into a corner, remember you can hold the left trigger to free run
  and get out of there and into an open space.  If you find you're around 150
  HP, start using Apple Gels to keep you going until you can finish him off.
  Your female guest will join in the fight and will use her healing Artes on 
  you so that you can focus on attacking instead of healing your wounds.  Zagi
  will start to have longer combos in this round so make sure you block until 
  he is completely done attacking before you start your assault. Don't worry 
  about healing but make sure Zagi stays away from the girl.  Keep following 
  the same basic pattern of attacks until he goes down.  You'll receive Leather
  Boots for beating him which you can equip in place of the Cape if you'd like.

Estelle will formally introduce herself and you can now wander around again.  
Return to Lynn's room and loot the cabinets for an Orange Gel, the chest by his
bed for an Apple Gel, and the table by the door for a Holy Bottle.  Keep going 
down the hall, out the door through the courtyard area and into another hall. 
First door on your left is Estelle's room, she'll change into something
a bit more comfortable and finally join your party.  Now that she's with you, 
focus on attacking the whole time and let Estelle heal you during fights.  You 
don't need to enter the room on the right if you don't want to, unless you want
to get into a battle.  Continue up and into the next hallway.  Take your first 
right as you're coming down and you'll find a chest with a Life Bottle.  Head 
all the way down and exit the hall into a room containing a goddess statue.  
Sound familiar?  Loot the chest first, there is an Apple Gel and an Orange Gel.
Pull the statue into the grey area to reveal a hidden passage.

  Down in the sewers, the chest to the right of where you begin has a Life 
  Bottle and the one right down the first flight of steps is a Magic Lens.  
  Follow the path left and you'll run into another chest with an Apple Gel and 
  nearby are some crates you can drag out of the way to get to a Holy Bottle.  
  South of that are more crates to move revealing 150 Gald and to your left is
  another one with 200 Gald.  Continue to the right and along the path and you
  will come to the end of the room.  To your right is a chest with an Orange 
  Gel, to the left is the ladder to exit the area behind some crates.

You'll exit out of the sewer in front of Mordio's house in the noble area of 
town.  Make your way down to the lower sector again and head out of the area 
which is south/east of the fountain.  You'll have a quick run in with Hanks 
again and decide to leave town and find the missing blastia.  The guards are 
still chasing you but you'll get a little help from the townspeople who block 
their advance and give you time to exit the town.  Repede will also join your 
party now and you receive some parting gifts from your friends in the lower 
sector: 500 Gald, World Map, Orange Gel x4, Melange Gel x4, Life Bottle x4, 
Bread x4, and Egg x2.



                             ---------------
                             AREA: World Map
                             ---------------

ITEMS:

x2 Ilyccia Weed
x2 Wolf Fang
x1 Merman Fin
x1 Merman's Weapon


NOTE: Your items may vary in these tree stumps.  I am not listing out the
      location of these beyond this section, as you cross the world map just
      wander around a bit before hitting the next town and search these out.

This is your first visit to the world map.  Most of it is grayed out but as 
you venture around the world it will fill out the portions that you visited.  
As you are exiting the capital city, there is a bridge directly ahead of you,
cross it and head west and you'll come across a tree stump looking object in 
the field.  These contains items so stop by and grab them whenever you spot 
one.  This one in particular holds Ilyccia Weed x2 and Wolf Fang x2.  Continue
north from where the bridge is at and enter the small camp you see right ahead.
Here you will meet Karen and her brother Rich who run the King of Adventure
Travelers' Lodge.  They can offer you a place to rest for a very reasonable 
price so make sure to stop in as you continue to meet them throughout the game.
Right beyond the lodge area you can go up the cliff that overlooks it and find 
another tree stump heading south which has a Merman Fin and a Merman's Weapon.  
Head into the fort area north of the camp when you are done leveling up in the 
field.



                          -----------------------
                          TOWN: Deidon Hold (JG8)
                          -----------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Apple Gel
x1 Battle Book
x1 Egg
x1 Magic Lens
x1 Milk
x1 Orange Gel


NOTE: Be sure to visit Duke at the top of the guard station.  I have listed
      the instructions for that below.

As you enter you will talk to man who gives you a quick rundown on how the
Skill system works in relation to the weapons you are carrying.  He also 
allows Estelle to keep a book she was reading, the Battle Book.  You can talk
to him again to purchase new items.  I recommend upgrading your weapons at 
this point so grab a Scimitar for Yuri, a Wand for Estelle, and the Karakaze 
for Repede.  DO NOT SELL YOUR OLD WEAPONS!  You will learn about synthesizing 
later so just hang on to them for the moment, don't worry about keeping old 
armor though.  Pass on buying the Hard Mail from the store at this point, you 
will be able to find it for free very shortly.  Enter the guard station which 
is north of the item shop.  Go upstairs and you'll be on top of the fort.  The 
crates right in front of you will have the Milk and Egg ingredients, and right
next to those is a chest containing an Apple Gel.  Climb the ladder and to the
left you can meet a mysterious fellow (Duke) who will wander off after a quick
conversation.  Exit the guard station and go to the lower section of this area
which is in the southwest corner.  At the very back of this camp are some 
crates that have a Magic Lens and Orange Gel.  Now attempt to the leave through
the gates in the main part of the area and you'll come under attack by some 
monsters.

  After a pretty lengthy scene where you save some innocent folks you'll gain 
  control again.  Head into that lower section of town again and you'll be 
  propositioned by a guild woman named Kaufman.  She gives you some advice on 
  how to get around this whole situation that is going on; the Quoi Woods.  
  When you are finished in this area, head out and make your way west to the 
  woods.



                         ----------------------
                         AREA: Quoi Woods (KB2)
                         ----------------------


ITEMS:

x1 Apple Gel         x1 Iron Circlet
x1 Bread             x1 Life Bottle
x1 Cape              x1 Magic Lens
x1 Egg               x1 Monster Book
x1 Hard Mail         x1 Orange Gel

RECIPE: Sandwich


Once inside, go up the path which will eventually get you heading to the east.
Keep following it straight across to the right to find a chest with an Apple 
Gel.  Back up and take the path leading north.  Keep going up and you'll hit a
chest with an Iron Circlet which you should equip on Estelle.  Backtrack and 
you'll see a trail you passed which leads you to the right.  You will have a 
cutscene that shows you coming across a blastia and Estelle will get knocked 
unconscious.  Once awake you will get a tutorial about the cooking section of 
your main menu.  When you regain control, grab the chest to the left of this 
little clearing which has a Magic Lens.  Go directly south of this chest and 
you can search some bushes for Bread and Egg.  Continue along the path heading
east from the SAVE POINT and you'll run across a chest with Hard Mail along the
way.  The trail only has one route here so keep following and you'll pick up a 
Cape from a chest as well.  Right up ahead you get semi-attacked by a young 
traveler swinging a weapon that is bigger than he is.  His name is Karol, he 
will join your party and also give you the Monster Book.  Pick up the Life 
Bottle from the chest right near you, and then go down a semi-hidden path right
below you to find an Orange Gel.  Exit the woods, directly ahead of you on the
world map is Halure, the city of blossoms.

NOTE: Now that you have obtained your first recipe, you can try and earn more
      by cooking recipes with certain characters.  You will want to cook after
      every battle if possible!  Not only will it restore some life and TP
      after battle, but it pays off later in the game when mastering a recipe
      is a HUGE help for a sidequest.  Please see the Recipe section of this
      guide for more info!

NOTE: Use Estelle to cook sandwich numerous times to learn the Rice Ball
      recipe.  Once you've done this, use Yuri to cook Rice Ball until the
      Beef Bowl recipe is made.  Next, use Karol to cook Beef Bowl to make
      Omelette Rice.  Finally, use Karol to cook Omelette Rice until you obtain
      the Meat Sauce recipe.



                           ------------------
                           TOWN: Halure (NE9)
                           ------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Eggbear Claw        x1 Nectar Bottle
x1 Holy Bottle         x1 Nia Fruit
x1 Life Bottle         x1 Orange Gel
x1 Luluria Petal       x1 Panacea Bottle
x1 Magic Lens


As you enter Halure, you'll notice that it's not the bright and happy place you
would expect it to be.  Instead, there are bodies littered about due to the 
monsters attacking and the barrier being down.  Estelle will run off to help, 
but you can get two items really quick.  Go to the first building in town, it 
is the mayor's house.  As you enter, to the right by the flowing water is an 
Orange Gel, and outside behind the tree is a Magic Lens.  Go to the inn, 
upstairs in the second room you can find an Apple Gel in the dresser.  Right 
beyond the inn you will find Estelle healing the townspeople, once she is 
through you can head towards the giant tree.  As it turns out, you need to heal
the tree in order to restore the barrier and to do this you will need to find a
Panacea Bottle.  Unfortunately, (and obviously) it's not as easy as buying it 
from the store.  Go to the store and find out that you need to collect 
materials in order to make it yourself.  Eggbear Claw, Nia Fruit, and Luluria 
Petal are the three you are after.  Speak with Karol right by the store to have
him join the party and then speak with the mayor outside of his house and pick 
up the Luluria Petal from him.  Head to the Quoi Woods again and visit the area
where the SAVE POINT is at, you'll pick up a Nia Fruit automatically.  To find 
the Eggbear, head back in to the woods a bit more and you'll come across him 
after a short scene.


--------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Eggbear
--------------------

  MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON EGGBEAR.

  Eggbear is actually a pretty easy boss to defeat, more of a sub-boss than an
  actual boss.  He's got some powerful attacks but as long as you keep your 
  distance and run in after he throws his flurry of punches you can do your 
  damage and back off unscathed.  If you happen to be in a spot that you can't
  run back, just make sure to stay blocking until he is done, otherwise he'll 
  drain your life very quickly at this point.  He tends to face one way for a 
  long period of time so free run behind him and throw your attacks to avoid 
  getting hit back.  Make sure to take out the minor enemies before focusing
  on Eggbear himself, they are quick to take out and avoid you a lot of
  headaches.


Now that you have collected all of the items, head back to Halure and speak 
with the shop owner and he will synth a Panacea Bottle for you.  Make your way
to the hill and Karol attempts to revive the tree.  He doesn't succeed, but
luckily Estelle finishes the job.  After the scene, check the foot of the tree 
above where the people are standing for a Life Bottle, then the two chests to 
the right for a Nectar Bottle and a Holy Bottle.  The mayor thanks you for your
help in restoring the barrier and asks you to visit him before you leave.  Go 
by the item shop and there is a man outside named Kozakura from the Surveyor's 
Guild.  He gives you valuable tips for synthing new items at the shop.  You can
pick up whatever you need from the shop here, but don't bother buying the armor
for Repede as you can snag a better one in the next area.  



                           -----------------
                           TOWN: Aspio (AM4)
                           -----------------

ITEMS:

x3 Apple Gel
x1 Collector's Book

RECIPE: Salisbury Steak


When you enter Aspio, go up to the gates and the guards will request a 
passport.  Since you don't have one of these, you will need to find another
way in.  Go directly to your left from where you entered Aspio and you will
find a bouncing vegetable in the corner.  Check it and you discover it is 
Wonder Chef in disguise.  He will give you the recipe Salisbury Steak and
lets you know that you can find him in other areas of the world too so keep an
eye out for giant dancing foods...  Approach the door and Karol will pick the
lock for you, allowing entrance into the library section of town.  While inside
here you find out that Mordio is pretty well known around these parts and can
be found in a small shack nearby.  Check in front of where the "inn" is at,
there is a large book on the ground that hides 3 Apple Gels.  Pick up whatever
you might need from the item shop, but DON'T buy the Half Guard armor for Rita
or the Long Sword weapon for Yuri as they can be attained for free very
shortly.  Take a rest if needed and head out into the main part of town.  Go 
directly across the large commons and to Mordio's house.  Karol will employ 
his lock picking skills again and get you inside.

  Inside Mordio's house you can take a look at 3 different things around the
  parameter related to blastia.  After that, check out the stacks of books
  laying by the entrance and Mordio appears, she's less than happy.  It
  seems there was a misunderstanding and Rita isn't the one who had ran off 
  with the blastia, she's willing to join you to prove her innocence.  After
  you regain control, go upstairs and check by the bed to find the Collector's
  Book.  Head towards the Shaikos Ruins to the east, but make sure to stop at
  the Kings of Adventure camp before you hit the ruins.

NOTE: Now that you have your first recipe, go to your cooking menu and attach
      some recipes for Yuri or anyone else you want to in the shortcuts.  This
      will give you an option on screen at the end of a battle to cook a meal.
      Cook after every battle!  This will allow you to master recipes as you
      go along and helps you down the road.  See the cooking section of this
      guide for more info.



                       -------------------------
                       AREA: Shaikos Ruins (BB6)
                       -------------------------

ITEMS:

800 Gald              x1 Long Sword
x1 Apple Gel          x1 Magic Lens
x1 Amber Cloak        x1 Ohka
x1 Chain              x2 Orange Gel
x1 Great Axe          x1 Passport
x1 Half Guard         x1 Sorcerer's Ring
x1 Leather Boots      x1 Stiletto
x1 Life Bottle

KEY SYNTH: Special Flag


As you enter, head to your right and you'll run into a chest with a Magic Lens.
In that same area but just north of that and on your left you will see a tree, 
search right below that to find an Orange Gel.  800 Gald can be found up the 
stairs just beyond that tree.  Once you have collected those items, make your 
way back to the main corridor.  Make a left right beyond where you come into 
the main hall and you can find a Life Bottle.  Keep heading north and up the 
flight of steps and the end of the area, there is a chest with a Half Guard 
inside.  Go back down to the bottom of these stairs and on your left is a 
statue.  The party automatically moves the statue so you can head underground.

  Follow the path directly south and across the waterfall to pick up an Amber 
  Cloak, then backtrack and head down the steps.  On the landing between the 
  two flights of stairs is a chest containing Leather Boots.  Go up the steps
  and keep following the path around until you encounter a blastia.  Rita will
  give you a Sorcerer's Ring and tells you to aim and shoot at the blastia 
  using the X button.  Defeat the Golems that appear after activating the first
  core and head to the set of stairs you created.  You learn about surprise 
  encounters which occur after being attacked from behind, and also using the 
  ring to get you advantage encounters.  At the top of these steps is a chest 
  with an Apple Gel, continue on into the next room to your left and keep 
  following the path.  You will eventually hit the second blastia core at the 
  back of the room which you can shoot with your Sorcerer's Ring to reveal a 
  set of stairs.  Go to these stairs, collect the Ohka from the chest and hit
  the third blastia next to it for another set of stairs.  Head to these new 
  ones, at the bottom of the flight is a chest containing a Chain.  From here 
  you will go to the southern steps to hit your fourth core.  Loop around and
  collect the Long Sword at the top of the new stairs and then exit the room
  at the back right corner.

You are now located in the final room, go all the way to your left to pick up
a Great Axe hidden behind the rocks.  Go towards the right and hit the SAVE 
POINT, and continue in that direction.  As you begin to make your way north, 
make sure to hit the blastia core that is semi-hidden on the underside of a set
of steps to reveal more steps.  At the north side of the room there is a big 
platform in the middle with a very large Golem and two sets of steps on either
side of this.  On the right you can hit another blastia core, on the left there
is one as well in addition to an Orange Gel.  South of the left set of steps 
leads you to your final blastia core (finally...) which opens up some more 
Golems.  Fight through all of them and you get a set of steps south of the 
middle platform where you can find a Stiletto.  Heal your party up and save if
needed, then head to the middle platform and get ready for battle.


--------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Goliath
--------------------

NOTE: To complete Secret Mission 2, attack the back of Goliath when he is 
      charging up one of his attacks.  The easiest way to complete this is free
      run behind him and just keep attacking his backside the entire battle.  
      He is constantly turning to try and face you so you'll have to readjust a
      fair amount.  Always stay behind him and you'll have no problem 
      completing this challenge.

  MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON GOLIATH.

  Goliath is another pretty easy battle, follow the directions on the note 
  above and it's a piece of cake.  Link your combos as much as possible to keep
  him from attacking as he throws some massive hits at you.  A majority of his
  attacks are directed in front of him so as long as you're behind him you have
  nothing to worry about.  I opted to leave Repede out of this fight since Rita
  keeps her distance and doesn't take many hits, same goes for Estelle.  Karol 
  tends to take the brunt of the attacks since he stays in front and is a close
  combat fighter.  Make sure to block when he uses the attack that sends a 
  shock wave out to everyone in the nearby radius.  You shouldn't need to use 
  any items in this match as Estelle pretty much keeps control of health the
  entire time.


Now that the battle is over you have to backtrack all the way to the entrance
of the ruins.  Start back and you'll eventually encounter the Mage who sent 
Goliath after you.  He tells you that someone from the nearby harbor sent him 
to collect the blastia cores and that he may be the one responsible for taking
all of the previous ones.  After the conversation, makes your way to Aspio 
again and Rita gives you a Passport to allow access to the city.  Meet up at 
Rita's house and after the scene, attempt to leave the city where Rita will 
join up with you again.  Make sure to head back into her house and check the 
few available locations for some extra dialogue.  Bring the party back to 
Halure and the mayor greets you at his house and gives you a letter (which is
actually a wanted poster of Yuri).  While here, go to the item shop and synth
a Special Flag, it's in the special item area (REQUIRES: 3 Blastium Ore, 2 Bat
Wing, 2 Soft Tail, 1000 Gald).  Collect Rita at the giant tree and then head
for the exit where some imperial faces you haven't seen in a while greet you.
This, of course, means another tutorial.  You now learn how to use Over Limit,
a very powerful tool in battle.  After the fight, make your way west towards
Ehmead Hill.



                        -----------------------
                        AREA: Ehmead Hill (AP1)
                        -----------------------

ITEMS:

2000 Gald            x1 Orange Gel
x1 Armet Helm        x3 Poison Bottle
x1 Francisca         x1 Scarf
x1 Holy Bottle       x1 Tama-hagane
x2 Life Bottle       x1 Tent
x1 Melange Gel


After causing a bit more mischief, you'll gain control of the party and can 
head off into the monster trails.  It may be beneficial to equip the Poison
Ward you received from Goliath on Yuri as there are a few monsters in this area
that will infect you with Poison attacks.  The Giant Beetle and Basilisk 
monsters drop Poison Bottles in case you need something to cure the ailment.  
Take the path heading north and at the spot where the giant flowers are, head 
to your left and you will find 3 Poison Bottles.  Go back and continue north 
where you will run into a chest with the Francisca weapon.  Head back towards 
the beginning of the area and take the path leading right, follow it straight 
across to find a Melange Gel in a chest.  Take the path going north that you 
just passed and the road forks.  To the left is a chest with a Scarf, at the 
top of the first hill on the right are 2 Life Bottles.  After hitting the SAVE
POINT, take the path leading north-west up the hill to find a Tama-hagane in 
the chest, then back down and follow the western path.  You'll hit a small 
field and be attacked by a giant monster.


--------------------
BOSS BATTLE: GATTUSO
--------------------

NOTE: Free run to a plant and get Gattuso to come near you.  Attack the plant
      and it will stun him, this will get you the Secret Mission 3 
      accomplishment.  A lot of times if you get backed into a corner your
      party can help with this as they will all be attacking and there is a
      good chance one will knock the flower and catch Gattuso with it.

  MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON GATTUSO.

  With this battle you will want to run the same opening strategy that you did
  with Eggbear.  Take out Gattuso's two pups before focusing on him.  You will
  need to make quick work of them as Gattuso himself deals large amounts of 
  damage to multiple party members and potentially does this with every 
  attack.  You will need to use your over limit in this fight and chain 
  together a large combo so make sure you use something that will not cause a 
  knockdown (like Destruction Field).  You can string this together for an over
  25 hit combo as long as the pups aren't in your way when you are doing it.
  Make sure Yuri has the Recover skill activated as you get a lot of knock 
  down attacks against you.  Make sure your party's TP is filled before 
  entering the fight as Artes will be a major factor in your victory.  If 
  you're not able to get close and you see Gattuso demolishing your party, try
  and break his attack with an Azure Edge so your friends have an opportunity
  to recover or begin their assault. You will receive an Attack Ring as your 
  prize for victory.


Head up the hill past the area where you fought the boss battle, and you'll
have a scene with the crew looking out over the ocean.  Right behind this
cliff is a chest containing an Orange Gel.  Continue on the path and you will
be able to take a right into a clearing with a fair amount of enemies and a
few chests with: a Holy Bottle, 2000 Gald, Armet Helm.  Once you reach the 
bottom you get a quick rundown on camping sets and also receive a free Tent.
You can now exit the area and head towards your next stop, Nor Harbor.

NOTE: Make sure to exit Ehmead Hill and go right back in and try to walk
      towards the center towards the blastia and you will get a new scene.
      Also, once you have a full party you should go back to the area where the
      party was overlooking the ocean from a cliff.  There is a rock that is
      kind of shaped like a tombstone here that you can seach and initiate a
      scene.



                       ----------------------
                       TOWN: Nor Harbor (DC2)
                       ----------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Gladius
x1 Golden Horn
x1 Knight Sword
x1 Kotaro
x1 Leather Whip
x1 Mat
x1 Panacea Bottle
x1 Paralysis Ward
x1 Poison Bottle
x1 Small Key
x1 Small Wolf Key

RECIPE: Sorbet


Nor Harbor isn't the cheerful and lively place you imagined as seen by the 
struggling townspeople.  When Yuri parts with everyone, go back and to the
right, past where the inn is located and you will see a rubber ducky running
in circles.  Check it to discover Wonder Chef again who will reward you with
the recipe for Sorbet.  Turn back and enter the ally in front of where the rest
of your party is standing and you get attacked by a few Letts.  After finishing
them off, you finally meet Flynn.  Meet up with your friends outside the inn
and enter Flynn's room inside on the left.  You have a plan to go meet Ragou at
his manor, head to the shop and pick up any items you might need and head to
the west part of the Harbor.

NOTE: At this point the Dice Master will appear in his window at the back of
      the street past the alley and item shop.  Beat him at his dice game to
      earn Rita's "New Dice Master" title.  You can attempt this as many times
      as you like and they are always 50/50 odds.  Not very fun games at all
      but if you're willing to sit through the random chances of winning you
      get a few gels out of it and the title.

NOTE: Cook Sorbet with Yuri until you learn the Pudding recipe.  Once you've
      done this, have Yuri cook Pudding until you gain the Cake recipe.

  Approach the magistrate's gates and you will be turned away by the guards.
  The party decides that catching the Rhybgaro might gain them an audience so
  make your way back out to the field.  There is a plateau that overlooks the
  town that you need to go up.  The Rhybgaro will be hard to miss, it looks
  like a giant yellow horse towering over the forest.  The fight is incredibly
  easy, his attacks are weak and if you have an over limit available you can
  pretty much take him out in one big combo.  Return to the harbor and you see
  the battered and desperate father who's son was kidnapped about to go off in
  search of the Rhybgaro.  Yuri will hand over the Golden Horn to and your
  chance at seeing the magistrate.  Speak with Flynn at the inn and go back to
  the magistrates house.  You meet up with you cellmate Raven again who uses
  you as a dirversion, but ultimately you get access anyway.  Search along the
  bushes outside of the house and you can find a Paralysis Ward and Panacea
  Bottle.  The party breaks in and you will be in a small dungeon area layed
  out like this (excuse the pathetic attempt at a map!):


             ROOM 4
               |
      CELL---ROOM 2---ROOM 3
               |        |
             ENTER ---ROOM 1


You will start (obviously) in the room labled ENTER.  Head to ROOM 1 and you
can pick up a Kinght Sword and Leather Whip from the chests.  Head back and
make your way into ROOM 2 and you encounter the child that had been kidnapped
from the townspeople earlier.  You can also get a Gladius from the chest in
this room.  Over to ROOM 3 where you will need to fight the enemies to obtain
the Small Key item, and also pick up the Kotaro from the chest.  Use the Small
Key to enter ROOM 4 and fight one of the Wolves inside here to get the Small
Wolf Key.  Backtrack to ROOM 2 and use the key to enter the door on the left
side which gains you access to the CELL.  You finally meet Ragou through this
door but chase him off.  Follow him up the steps and you come to a room 
containing the blastia and have a reunion with Ragou, Flynn, and a mysterious
dragon-riding person that damages the blastia.  After the ensuing confusion,
you regain control outside of the house.  Go back to the front door and search
the right side between the house and the walls to find a Poison Bottle.  Take
a moment to restock on any items you might need from the store in town and
also stay at the inn so you are ready for your next battle.  Pick up the Mat
next to the SAVE POINT where you exited Ragou's house and head down the path.
You will hop aboard the ship leaving port and have to fight a couple of
scrubs before hitting the boss.


-----------------
BOSS BATTLE: ZAGI
-----------------

NOTE: Lure Zagi towards the side of the boat, you should be able to get right
      along the railing.  Keep blocking and let him perform his cyclone attack
      on you.  When he goes flying over your head, hit your Over Limit and it
      should send him flying over the railing and will earn you the Secret
      Mission accomplishment for this battle.

  MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON ZAGI.

  Once again Zagi has large combos that will wear you out unless you go heavy
  on the defense.  When he starts his combo he will do some basic attacks and
  eventually finish off with a cyclone attack where he shoots up into the air.
  After he lands, this is your chance to get your hits in.  If you keep enough
  distance you can throw an arte attack at him mid-combo and throw him off his
  game.  You should be able to get your gauge full a couple times during this
  battle.  As with prior Zagi battles, BLOCK WHENEVER POSSIBLE!  He throws many
  flurries of attacks and can quickly drain your life.  Getting the Over Limits
  will be your best form of offense as he's got a good amount of HP and a large
  combo will take a significant chunk away from him.  Keep Estelle healed and
  make sure to throw her a Life Bottle ASAP if she dies, she will be the one to
  keep your party in good health throughout this fight.  You will receive a
  Paralysis Ward for your victory.


Yuri will end up in the water and manages to save a captive that was held
inside the boat named Ioder.  As it turns out, Ioder is a noble also.
Hopefully saving him will make you look good in the eyes of the empire despite
all of your recent shenanigans...




                        -----------------------
                        TOWN: Capua Torim (PZ3)
                        -----------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Holy Bottle
x1 Life Bottle
x1 Lottery Gel
x3 Magic Lens
x1 Mat
x1 Poison Bottle

RECIPE: Fried Chicken and Fries


Head up into the city and you will see a pile of boxes with produce in them
right as you enter.  There is a giant blue/gray fish to the side which is
actually Wonder Chef again, he will give you the Fried Chicken and Fries
recipe.  Right next to this is the lighthouse, go upstairs and ouside onto the
balcony where you will find a Holy Bottle.  To the left of the lighthouse are
some steps leading up to a higher level of the town.  Right at the top of the
stairs and to the right are a pile of crates in front of a building you can
search to find a Lottery Gel.  Follow this building to the left and around the
back side are some more crates where you can find a Poison Bottle.  Up the next
set of steps and make your way to the inn.  You can stop by the item shop right
next to it and grab anything you may need as well.  Enter the left room at the
inn and you can find a Mat in the bedside table and 3 Magic Lens inside the
dresser to the right.  Make sure you stay at the inn before leaving the town! 

NOTE: Have Estelle cook Fried Chicken and Fries until you get the Scottish Egg
      recipe. 

  You find out the young man, Ioder, you saved from the sinking ship earlier is
  actually the potential heir to the throne.  After a disagreement, Yuri will
  part from everyone else and search for clues.  You can find your clue right
  by the item shop, Raven will be standing inbetween a couple benches.  After
  he takes of you reunite with the party and can go back to the inn and check
  the right room this time.  The dresser by the fireplace contains a Life
  Bottle.  Speak with the innkeeper and you will have a short scene that has
  you on the run yet again.  Finish up your business here and exit the town.
  As you exit, make sure to visit the King of Adveture camp right near the
  city and make your way north across the bridge on the world map to a rainy
  area.  Right as you cross, there is a waterfall on your right and nearby is
  your next destination.



                          -----------------------
                          AREA: Caer Bocram (RG2)
                          -----------------------

ITEMS:

4000 Gald                x2 Mat
x2 Apple Gel             x2 Orange Gel
x1 Cocktail Dress        x4 Paralysis Bottle
x1 Epee                  x1 Password Clue 1
x1 Holy Raven            x1 Password Clue 2
x1 King Sized Belt       x1 Password Clue 3
x1 Lamellar Leather      x1 Purple Ribbon
x1 Life Bottle           x1 Straw Hat
x1 Limit Bottle          x1 Tsurugi
x3 Magic Lense           x1 War Axe
x1 Magic Mist


A voice calls out as you enter and Karol recognizes it.  You finally meet Nan,
the mystery girl he keeps mentioning.  She gives out a bit more information on
Karol's apparently terrible guild history.  Search the front and back of the
blastia right at the first fork in the road.  The right path leads you to a
chest with 3 Paralysis Bottles, grab those and head back towards the left path.
Right next to the first building you see towards the left is a chest with an
Epee, right beyond here on the path is a Straw Hat.  Approach the door on the
ground beyond this, Yuri will kick it open and you find the activation switch
for the blastia.  Shoot the switch with your Sorcerer's Ring and go upstairs to
the surface.  The doors on the buildings are unlocked, enter the one you found
the Epee next to and you will find a Mat, then go to the one at the right of
the fork to for Password Clue 1, and an Orange Gel.  Search the blastia, hit it
with the ring and you can now use the warp function on it.  This next section
has a lot of different levels and can get kind of confusing:

  1. On the blastia, select the Forward option and you'll be up on a higher
     level of the area.  Enter the building on the far left, in this first room
     you will find a Limit Bottle and 3 Magic Lenses.  Upstairs by the
     bookcases is an Apple Gel, and nearby is a Cocktail Dress.  Near the front
     of the room you can also find a King Sized Belt in a somewhat hidden
     chest.  You can use the SAVE POINT downstairs if you need to, but don't
     bother heading down the spiral staircase at this point.  Go outside
     upstairs and activate the blastia, then select the left path.  

  2. At the top you will encounter a group of guild members nearby, Yuri will
     witness a fatal strike being performed.  Get into a battle or two and you
     get a quick tutorial on performing a fatal strike.  All the way to the
     left you will see a chest on the ground in front of the waterfall.
     Opening it puts you into a battle as it is a actually a monster, however
     you can also collect 3,000 Gald from it after winning.  Enter the building
     at the top of the steps by the waterfall and you can find a Life Bottle
     and Paralysis Bottle.  To the far right you can find a chest outside of
     the building that contains an Apple Gel, inside on the bookshelf is 1,000
     Gald.  Downstairs you can pick up Password Clue 2 from the table and a
     Purple Ribbon in the chest.  Go back outside and make your way to the left
     and into the next building.  In this first room will be an Orange Gel on
     the shelves and a Holy Raven in the chest.  Up the ladder and on the roof
     is another blastia to activate.

  3. Don't pick the right option yet, have it shoot you forward and enter the
     only building on the top.  Lamellar Leather and Password Clue 3 can be
     found upstairs in this building.  Jump down and go back up to the blastia
     you just used and now choose to go to the right.  Right behind the giant
     sculpture outside is a Tsurugi.  Jump down again and then head towards the
     waterfall (where you initially landed when you got on this level.)


  4. Activate the blastia below where the waterfall is at and choose the
     Forward option.  In the first building you can find a Magic Mist and a
     Mat.  There is a set of stairs next to this building that leads up, at the
     bottom of these is a chest with a War Axe.  The only way to get down from
     here is to jump back down to the bottom level around where you opened the
     door on the ground.

Take the blastia on ground level Forward again and enter the left building and
go downstairs this time.  Save at the SAVE POINT again and make your way down
the spiral staircase.  Go to the console where you input the code and you get
prompted with a keyboard.  You picked up three clues while traveling around the
ruins, they say "Light", "Sky", and "Sphere".  So put on your thinking caps
here, what is spherical, can be found in the sky, and is very bright?  Good
job!  "SUN".  Enter the answer and the vault door will open.  Inside you will
see the guild members again and the dragon rider from before will swoop in and
destroy another blastia, releasing the monster.


--------------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Dreaded Giant
--------------------------

NOTE: When the Dreaded Giant gets on his hind legs to unlease an attack, run in
      and start swinging on him.  You will complete Secret Mission 5 if you are
      able to hit him while he is in this position.

  MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON DREADED GIANT.

  This giant should be an easier battle than last time.  He does have some
  attacks that target a large radius but for the most part you can stay right
  up on him and not really need to worry about dying.  Use a Over Limit as soon
  as you can and give him a big initial hit.  If you have the Taunt skill for
  Yuri, back off out of his striking zone and get your over limit back up.  You
  really should only need to use two of these to take him out in a timely
  manner.  Estelle, depending on how much level grinding you've done, should
  have a heal spell that cures the whole party so health shouldn't be an issue.
  Just hammer away at him and stay close, there isn't really a lot of strategy
  involved in killing the Dreaded Giant.  You will recieve a Defense Ring for
  beating him.


Karol has wandered off somewhere, head up the stairs and outside the building
where you find him arguing with Nan.  After they are done, attempt to exit the
area and you are met by Cumore and some imperial guards again.  They reveal
that Estelle is not just a plain old noble, but in fact a princess, and attempt
to kill you for abducting her.  Leblanc and the Schwann Brigade show up trying
to capture Yuri as well and bring the party into custody.  



                          -------------------
                          TOWN: Heliord (XG7)
                          -------------------

RECIPE: Fish with Miso Sauce


You are pardoned of your crimes by Estelle and Ioder.  When you gain control of
Yuri, search the item swinging behind the guards in the interrogation room.
Surprise!  It's Wonder Chef again and he teaches you the Fish with Miso Sauce
recipe.  Exit into the main part of the city and head left past the main
blastia.  Speak with Flynn and Ioder and attempt to enter the door right
outside of where they were standing.  Your old friends Boccos and Adecor show
up with another tutorial for you, this one is about Burst Artes.  Defeat them
in battle and enter the inn, gather items if you need and say talk to the
innkeeper to sleep.  The rest of the party will join you but you learn that the
blastia has been acting up and, of course, Rita needs to take care of it.  Go
to the blastia and Estelle rejoins you, then over to the HQ and into the
interrogation room to speak with Flynn.  The blastia rumbles, Rita and Estelle
attempt to stop it but it blows up and they are injured.  Talk to Karol outside
Estelle's room and head back in again.  The dragon rider appears again, and
after a lot of dialogue you're allowed to venture out of town.

NOTE: There are a couple things to take care of before leaving:
      
       1. Make sure to talk to Drake Dropwart in front of the blastia.
       2. Enter the HQ to encounter a scene with Hachette.
       3. Before you enter the inn, there is a walkway leading around the right
          side of it, search and you will find Wonder Reporter on the balcony.
       4. Sleep at the inn to encounter a scene with Yuri and Estelle.
       5. Before heading to the next area, backtrack to Caer Bocram.  Head left
          at the fork in the path as you enter and you will see Duke standing
          near the edge of the lake.

  Exit the left side of Heliord and make your way across the forests to
  your next destination, Dahngrest.



                        ---------------------
                        TOWN: Dahngrest (QB3)
                        ---------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Apple Gel
x1 Dark Bottle
x1 Holy Bottle
x1 Limit Bottle
x1 Orange Gel
x1 Panacea Bottle

RECIPE: Minestrone Soup


NOTE: If you haven't done so yet, synth a Special Flag at the item shop, it
      will come in handy for a Secret Mission very soon.

There is a road that leads between the item shop and the inn, follow it
straight up and the barrier will collapse allowing monsters to run amok in the
city.  Keep heading straight up and you will run into the Guild Union HQ.
Inside the front lobby there is a piece of food bobbing back and forth behind a
pillar.  Any guess as to what or who this is?  Wonder Chef!  He will teach you
the Minestrone Soup recipe.  Backtrack towards the town entrance and you will
run into a couple of quick fights with some monsters.  Don Whitehorse makes an
appearance as does Flynn.  When you gain control of Yuri, head up and to the
path leading left.  Stop in at the Sagittarius tavern and you can find a
Panacea Bottle in the dining area inside a dresser, search it a couple more
times to also get an Orange Gel and an Apple Gel.  Over in the Don's small
office you can check a cabinet multiple times and pick up a Dark Bottle, Holy
Bottle, and Limit Bottle.  Past the tavern you will reach the blastia, Rita
attempts to fix it and you'll catch another quick fight.  Rita restores the
barrier and you will need to head to the HQ again.  Unfortunately, the Don is
out fighting monsters so it's off to Keiv Moc!  Raven makes a cameo appearance
before leaving, apparently he is headed the same way you are.

NOTE: Cook Minestrone Soup with Estelle to learn the Miso Soup recipe.  Then,
      have Estelle cook the Miso Soup until you learn the Clam Chowder recipe.



                         --------------------
                         AREA: Keiv Moc (VJ7)
                         --------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Bastard Sword
x1 Chain Whip
x1 Estoc
x1 Limit Bottle
x3 Mind Bottle
x1 Orange Gel
x2 Poison Bottle
x1 Rabbit's Foot
x2 Weak Bottle


Raven approaches you just as you enter, the party isn't thrilled to see him but
he joins with you anyway!  Head up the tree trunk and head down to the part
where Raven takes Karol.  Straight ahead is a small clearing where you can find
a Bastard Sword and Chain Whip.  Back up and to the left, you'll run by a chest
with an Estoc and beyond that on the path is an Orange Gel.  Take the trunk
heading upwards and make your way left, the tree splits so pass the first path
leading down and continue towards the left.  Through the clearing you will come
across a chest with 2 Weak Bottles, and up a tree trunk beyond this is a
Rabbit's Foot.  Backtrack to where the tree split and take the first path you
saw leading down and into another clearing.  There is a chest right where you
come in with 2 Poison Bottles.  Head north and you will enter the second area
of the woods.

NOTE: You will also want to use Raven to cook Beef Bowl until you obtain Pork
      Stew.  Previously, you had Estelle cook Fried Chicken and Fries to get
      the Scottish Egg recipe.  Cook the Scottish Egg with Raven to make the
      Okonomiyaki recipe.

  Save at the SAVE POINT.  Keep going north and you will see a chest, it is
  another chest monster like you found in the previous ruins, defeating it will
  earn you a Limit Bottle.  Follow the path up the tree trunk and it eventually
  splits, the right path cannot be taken at this point so keep going left.  You
  will run right into a chest with 3 Mind Bottles, and right beyond that is
  another SAVE POINT.  Before you go any further, if you synthed the Special
  Flag prior to this (first available in the Shaikos Ruins part), you should
  switch your party leader to Raven.


----------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Gigalarva
----------------------

NOTE: During the battle you may notice that Gigalarva will run over the puddle
      of water in the area and dip his stinger in it to recover his life.  If
      you see him walking towards it, use Raven's "Serpent" spell and cast it
      in the water.  When he tries to dip his stinger in the puddle he will hit
      your spell and knock himself backwards earning you the Secret Mission.

MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON GIGALARVA.

Gigalarva has a small radius of attack but tends to hit anything nearby many
many times when he does strike.  If you're controlling Raven your best bet is
to run, pull your combo, then exit his attack radius.  He will frequently dip
his stinger in the puddle to recover life so if possible, corner him so he
can't move and continue to combo him so he can't break free.  If he does go for
the puddle, follow the directions in the NOTE right above.  There will be a
fair amount of opportunities to use your Fatal Strikes in this fight, it won't
do an instant kill but it does knock off a good chunk of life in one strike.
Have two close combat fighters in your party to keep him pinned in one spot and
constantly being attacked.  You will recieve a Stun Bracelet as a reward for
beating him.


  Even after the battle, you are still surrounded by enemies with no escape in
  sight.  Duke comes in and destroys everything surrounding you with a weapon
  that would have undoubtedly come in handy for the boss you just fought
  against.  He doesn't answer many questions about himself, only warns you to
  stay away from the aer springs.  Backtrack towards the first area of the
  forest and you will see a pile of monsters running away.  Don and some of his
  followers are here fighting and you have a quick conversation about your
  recent findings with him.  He also reveals that your new friend Raven is a
  Altosk Guild member and seems to have some connection with the Don.  He
  grants you an audience back in town so travel to Dahngrest again.

Inside Dahngrest's Guild HQ, you meet with the Don who is currently speaking
with Flynn.  Flynn offers to forge an alliance with the Guilds against the
Blood Alliance and Barbos, however, he delivers a letter from Ioder stating
that they want the Don out of the picture.  Flynn is escorted to prison and the
Don declares war on the empire.  Exit to the town and Yuri will part with the
group, go back and visit Flynn in the prison.  You switch places with Flynn and
the Don visits, he tells you his outburst was mostly for show.  Into the city
once more and meet with the party in the town square, then over to the building
on your right to meet with Rita and Repede.  Flynn stops the two sides from
fighting but Barbos attempts to kill him with an aer gun.  The mysterious
dragon-rider swoops in again to stop him and Yuri hitches a ride with him.

                         AREA: Ghasfarost (CB5)
                         ----------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Aque Blastia Core     x3 Magic Lens
x1 Battle Suit           x1 Melange Gel
x1 Blue Dragon           x2 Orange Gel
x1 Crescent Axe          x1 Pineapple Gel
x1 Halberd               x1 Rivet Belt

x1 Kurama                x1 Specific
x1 Leather Coat          x1 Theif's Cape
x1 Lemon Gel             x1 War Pike
x2 Life Bottle           x1 Warrior Symbol
x1 Limit Duo

RECIPE - Salad


You are put into a battle against 8 Bandidos.  This horde will chase you all
over the field and quickly surround you so throw your attack and run.  Lather,
rinse, repeat.  Hopefully you won't make the same mistake I did by leaving
the Quarter Damage skill active on Yuri making this a 10+ minute battle (ugh!).
After killing the entire squad you wind up in a prison cell with the
dragon-rider.  It turns out she is a woman named Judith and she will help you
bust out of the place.  It is also revealed that Yuri likes to hit women, a
trait that I personally didn't see coming.

NOTE: As mentioned before, use Raven to cook Beef Bowl until you obtain Pork
      Stew.  Then, use Judith to cook Pork Stew until you get Japanese Stew.
      Again using Judith, cook Japanese Stew until Sukiyaki is created.

FLOOR 1 - When you regain control of the party, re-enter the cell and save at
          the SAVE POINT.  There are two chests at the back of this room with a
          Life Bottle and Melange Gel, in the room to the right of these chests
          are 3 Magic Lenses and a Specific.  Move towards the left side of the
          main room and Yuri discovers he can hit the levers with his ring, you
          obtain Sorcerer's Ring Lv. 2.  Inside the bottom right door you can
          pick up Yuri's equipment and Judith picks up a War Pike.  You will
          also find a Pineapple Gel in the chest and a Life Bottle on the
          table.  Hit the right lever with your ring and head upstairs.

FLOOR 2 - Judith gives you a Limit Duo, a skill which can be used in battle.
          Along the back wall you can find a chest with a Battle Suit, and near
          the front of the room is a Crescent Axe.  You can check the barrels
          left of the Crescent Axe for an Orange Gel.  The back right room has
          a Leather Coat on the suits of armor.  Exit the door at the bottom
          and you meet up with the rest of your party.  Raven has a little
          scene with Duke and you can climb the ladder to the next floor.

FLOOR 3a - On the balcony you can find a Rivet Belt in a chest and 3 Holy
           Bottles in the crates on the far left.  Cross into the main part of
           the tower and hit the giant gold gear on your right with your ring
           to get it spinning.

      3b - There is a gear to your left to hit with the ring, and behind that
           is a chest with a Kurama.

      3c - Nothing here but another gear.  (Rhyme!)

      3d - The final gear and there is an Orange Gel in a chest to the right.


FLOOR 4a - Nothing to see here (yet), head up the steps.

      4b - Grab the Blue Dragon from the chest, hit the gear.

      4c - There is a Wizard Horn right at the top of the steps, hit the gear
           around the side and it will open up the gates on Floor 4a.

      4a - Head downstairs, you can now check the random pinwheel laying on the
           ground.  It's Wonder Chef!  He teaches you the Salad recipe.  Hit
           the gear right beside it also to open up another gate on 4b.

      4b - Run to the far left side and hit the 2 gears you see here, they open
           up a gate on 4d.

      4d - Hit the final 2 gears on the left and head up the steps to Floor 5.

     NOTE: Use Raven to cook Salad until you learn the Sashimi recipe.  Then,
           have Karol cook Sashimi until the Sushi recipe is learned.  You
           should also have Rita cook Salad until Vegetable Stir Fry is gained.
           Next, use Raven to cook the Vegetable Stir Fry until you get Soup
           Noodles.


FLOOR 5a - In a chest right behind your entrance is a Holy Cloak.  Head to 5c.

      5c - Knock the gear off and it falls below activating a gear below, it
           opens a path on 5b.

      5b - Hit the gear in the front right corner to open a gate on 5a.

      5a - The gear on the left will open a path on 5b, head back upstairs.
           (Out of breath yet??)

      5b - The gear on the left side will now open a path on 5c.

      5c - Left side again, the gear opens up 5d's path.

      5d - There is a Spike Hammer inside the chest at the top of the steps.
           Activate the gear on the left, then over to the right side and
           activate the two over there as well.

      5c - Your final gear is on the right of 5c, activate and head to the top.


FLOOR 6a - Inside two chest to the right are a Lemon Gel and a Smash Bow.

      6c - A Halberd, Warrior Symbol and Thief's Cape can be found in the three
           chests on this floor.  Taking the exit here leads to the top floor
           and boss battle for this area.


-------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Barbos
-------------------

NOTE: You will notice 4 green orbs around the parimeter of the battlefield.
      You need to destroy all of these before defeating Barbos.  You can either
      target them after you cycle through all of the enemies on the battlefield
      or you can free run over to them and hit them with an attack in order to
      get your reticle focused on them.  They are incredibly weak so they
      should only take a couple hits to destroy.  Killing all of them gets you
      the Secret Mission 7 achievement.

MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON BARBOS.

Barbos is another fight where your best strategy is to just go in and beat the
hell out of him nonstop until he dies.  The only real attack you should fear is
where he spins in a circle with his sword outstretched.  It can do a fair
amount of damage but it is more annoying than anything.  Kill all of his
henchmen first and then focus on beating him.  Keep some close combat fighters
in your party in order to have a nonstop flow of attacks against him, these
will allow you to link together a huge Over Limit combo against Barbos.  You
will receive a Blue Talisman for beating him.


  Now that Barbos is seemingly out of the picture you can retrieve your Aque
  Blastia Core.  Raven has mysteriously wandered off again and Judith will also
  go her own way.  Head back into Dahngrest when you are done at the tower.
  Approach the group of knights in front of the inn and you learn about a new
  treaty between the Guilds and the Empire.  Sleep at the inn and you will
  watch a scene with Yuri visiting the newly appointed Captian Flynn.  Yuri
  will assassinate Ragou for his bad deeds and earns the "Vigilante" title.
  Repede will also earn the title of "Sinful Sidekick".  Everyone parts ways
  but a giant flying monster attacks the town.  He is chased off when Judith
  shows up.  Estelle chooses to join you instead of returning home and gains
  the "Seeker of Truth" title.  Head towards Torim Harbor and you will have
  a scene where you name your guild.  Karol will gain the "Brave Vesperia
  Leader" title.

NOTE: Make sure you re-enter Dhangrest and speak with Duke at the broken
      bridge.  Also, if you were trying to do the Item Hater title mentioned
      at the very beginning of the walkthrough, you will earn it now.



                         ------------------------
                         AREA: Backtracking (CV4)
                         ------------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Marking Map


NOTE: At this point you will be heavy into the story portion of the game and
      not so much action for a little while.  This section contains a numbers
      of towns as you will be "backtracking" through a lot of places you have
      just visited.  It was easier to keep it all under one heading as you
      won't be in a lot of these places for very long.

Enter Heliord and sleep at the inn.  Yuri will be up in the middle of the
night, go outside and speak with Judith to the left of the inn's entrance.  In
the morning, head to the blastia for the town and you meet with the folks you
helped back in Nor Harbor.  Apparently the father has gone missing and you
accept your first job as a guild.  Talk to the guard that is directly below the
blastia.  Choose who you want to distract the guard and go to the item shop at
the inn.  The shop will need:

    1. x1 Soft Tail
    2. x1 Basilisk Scale
    3. x1 Bird Feather (Small)

  If you've been battling on the outskirts of the city for even a short while
  you should already have these.  If not, exit toward Dahngrest and run into
  some random battles and collect the needed items and return them to the shop.
  Whoever you picked will get dressed up and distract the guard.  You will now
  choose between Karol and Yuri to dress up as a guard.  (I chose Karol as the
  guard)  Go to the HQ where you will find Rita beating the hell out of
  everyone, including Karol.  Everyone rejoins the group and moving towards the
  blastia gets you a scene with some familiar faces.  The elevator heading down
  below the main part of the city will now be open.  Go down to the worker's
  village and follow the path until you run into Cumore and Yeager who are
  abusing Teagle, the man you are looking for.  This will initiate a quick
  semi-boss battle.  Not really anything special you need to do here as it
  really isn't a major boss, just take it as a normal battle and you will do
  fine.  Knock out Yeager's little entourage first and then focus on him.  Once
  you are back on the world map, make your way southeast to Capua Torim.  Once
  you cross the bridge Raven will randomly appear and rejoin the party.  Set
  off towards Capua Torim when you are ready.

NOTE: If you weren't able to before, go back to Ghasfarost and enter the
      building through the main doors.  Go into the room on the bottom right
      that you had initally started in and you will get a quick scene with
      Judith and her lost spear.  Also, when you enter Capua Torim you can find
      a woman standing near a tree below the Fortune Market's HQ.  Make sure
      you talk to here for another scene.

Inside Capua Torim, Raven complains about wanting to go to the inn and eating.
Stay the night and Raven will get the "Old Spy" title and you will part ways
with everyone.  You can visit the party members scattered about the town now.

  - Karol is in the first room at the inn
  - Rita is in the adjacent room to Karol
  - Repede is right outside the inn on the doorstep
  - Estelle is down a level near the bottom of the slides
  - Raven is standing down at the docks
  - Judith can be found if you try to exit the town

Speak with everyone, talk to the innkeeper again and rest.  In the morning, go
towards the docks where you run into Ioder and then will see Kaufman (who you
first met back in Deidon Hold) around the pier.  Talk to her and she takes you
on the Fiertia in exchange for handling a merman issue for her.  Move the ship
out to sea and you run into your first group of mermen.  After the battle you
are given control of the ship.  Re-enter Capua Torim and on the docks you find
Little Wolf, Repede's old nemesis.  They challenge eachother to see who can
mark the most territory.  Estelle runs off and collects the Marking Map for you
and Repede gains the "Fated One" title.  Take off in the Fiertia again and head
for the open seas, you will hit a lot of fog and smack right into the side of
a mysterious ship...



                            -------------------
                            AREA: Atherum (FT0)
                            -------------------

ITEMS:

4000 Gald              x2 Orange Gel
x1 Dried Seaweed       x1 Pineapple Gel
x1 Holy Bottle         x1 Red Box
x1 Holy Symbol         x1 Rice
x1 Lemon Gel           x1 Salmon
x1 Life Bottle         x3 Seal Bottle
x3 Limit Bottle        x2 Specific
x3 Magic Lens          x1 Snipe Xiphos
x1 Mat                 x1 Takemikazuchi
x1 Melange Gel         x1 Treat
x1 Ogre Sword          x1 Trident


NOTE: As a little semi-spoiler, this party you choose will be used for 95% of
      this area, the remaining will only be used for a VERY short time so
      pick your best party!

You will need to choose a party to take along with you, Repede joins
automatically and you will select the other two memebers.  Exit your boat and
enter the ghost ship's main deck.  On the back side of this deck you will find
a chest containing a Trident.  There is a ladder to the left leading all the
way up a mast, at the top there is a chest with a Seal Bottle, Limit Bottle,
Specific, and a Treat.  On the stairs to the left on the main deck is an Ogre
Sword, pick that up, then head below deck via the stairs on the right.  You
will pass through a hall with mirrors on it, the second room will have a chest
right in the middle of the floor with a Lemon Gel.  The trick to these rooms
inside this ship are that some of the enemies will be invisible, but you can
tell where they are at by using the mirror in the background and by the shadow
on the ground to gauge their location.  After another couple halls you hit a
bigger room with some stairs in it.

Floor 1 (Main)  - In the chest beneath the stairs is an Orange Gel, go to the
                  back right corner of the room and you can check for a Life
                  Bottle.  From this bottom floor you can either continue to
                  the right or go up to the second floor.

Floor 1 (Right) - On the left side of the room right near the door you can
                  check the wall and pick up 3 Magic Lenses.  Right above that
                  on the wall is a Seal Bottle.  Back out and go up the steps
                  in the previous room.  

Floor 2 (Main)  - There is a chest beneath the steps containing a Snipe Xiphos.

Floor 2 (Right) - There is a chest at the bottom behind a hammock that has a
                  Takemikazuchi (no I didn't make that word up).  Back up into
                  the previous room.

Floor 2 (Left)  - This door brings you to a galley.  In the back behind some
                  tables is a chest monster, you will retrieve a Specific after
                  beating it.  Also, behind the bar area on the stove you can
                  check and find Rice, Dried Seaweed, and Salmon.  Back up
                  again and head to the next floor up.

Floor 3 (Main)  - You can find a Limit Bottle in a chest behind the bannister
                  in the middle.

Floor 3 (Right) - Check for a Holy Bottle in the bunks right by where the door
                  is.

Floor 3 (Left)  - Enter the left floor and you will be trapped by a falling
                  gate, the rest of your party is concerned about your safety
                  and will take off after them.  

  You can take this opportunity to save at the SAVE POINT on your ship when you
  gain control of the rest of your crew.  Attempting to go below deck you find
  out that route is blocked, climb up the mast and take the broken part down to
  the outside of the ship.  Climb down the ladder and enter your first door,
  inside is a Pineapple Gel and a Melange Gel.  Back outside to the ships
  exterior and enter the next door around the corner.  In the second hall you
  will find a Mat inside a chest, past this room you reunite with the rest of
  the party.  Save at the SAVE POINT, the chest in the back right has an Orange
  Gel, the door to the left takes you outside the ship where a Limit Bottle can
  be found.  The door on the right cannot be opened yet, so head upstairs into
  the captain's quarters.

Check the bookcase at the top of the steps to find 4000 Gald and on the nearby
table for a Seal Bottle.  After reading the book by the dead pirate, check the
bottom right corner of the room for a Pirate Hat.  Grab the pirate's Red Box
from him on the table and climb up the ladder at the back of the room.  There
is a Holy Symbol in a chest as you come up to the top, don't bother climbing
the mast as there is nothing up at the top.  Back down into the pirate's room,
and exit through the door by the bookcase.  Climb down the ladders outside and
as you come to the level right above the deck, there is a piece of rope tied to
the ground that you can check, this will open gates that closed and door you
could not access right near the SAVE POINT earlier.  There isn't anything in
that door you haven't seen already, it simply just opens the access to a hall
you have already came through.  Go back to your ship and Rita will earn the
"Anti-Nonsense" title.

NOTE: Now that you have free control of the ship and the Marking Map from Capua
      Torim, you can fill out your Dog Map as you are going back and completing
      these following side items.  You can check your Dog Map by going to your
      Menu, then going to your World Map location and hitting the Y button to
      bring up the places you've marked.  They are highlighted in blue, and
      your nemesis is highlighted in red.  Mark an area by sleeping with a
      tent, mat or anything else in a place that isn't marked or isn't your
      color.

Go to Zaphias, in the middle sector there is a dog right around where the shop
is (and where you met the reporter for the first time) who will give you the
Friendship Fur Ball.  Continue up the steps into the noble sector and a man
named Shel will approach you and ask to help find his brother Clay.  After the
conversation, go towards towards the left and you will see him again outside of
Mordio's gates.  He will tell you to speak to Lune, Clay's girlfriend, in the
middle sector.  She is on a bench with Ted and another child nearby.  She will
give you a book that teaches you the "Tiger Blade" arte and you will also gain
the "Kingdom Celeb" title.  Make your way over to Deidon Hold and speak with
the man in front of the warehouse above where the shop and SAVE POINT are at.
He will take Karol inside to play a mini-game.

  Exit Deidon Hold and head to Halure.  By the inn there is a man wearing a
  green coat named Sicily.  He talks Raven into counting over 90,000 petals on
  the ground!  For your troubles, Raven learns "Arrivederci".  Go up to the
  tree and speak with the Mayor, after speaking with him stay at the inn and
  then return to the tree and speak with the children.  The kids will give you
  a Veil and run off.  Exit the town and you can find the King of Adventures
  traveling inn on the cliff above Halure and to the side of Aspio.  Rest and
  you will have a scene where you finally get more than two words out of Rich.
  Take your boat back to Capua Nor and you will find Sicily again on the bridge
  heading towards Ragou's house.  Speak to him again and Raven will learn the
  "Vacance" skill and get the "Twilight Dreamer" title.  There will be a lady
  standing outside of the inn that you can speak with, she will give you a
  recipe for Seafood Bowl.  She is the mother of Hachette, who you spoke with
  earlier in Heliord.  You can also go and do the warehouse over in Capua Torim
  now.  Talk with the man outside and you can get started.

                          TOWN: Nordopolica (JW1)
                          -----------------------

ITEMS:

RECIPE: Kebab Sandwich


Once gaining control of the party, head off of the docks and directly ahead
there will be a man standing in front of a smoking cauldron.  Talk to him and
you will have a scene where Judith runs off and ruins another blastia.  Go up
the steps heading north and speak to Drake who is facing the ocean after the
first little bridge.  Enter the main gates, rest, shop (make sure you have some
Magic Lenses in your inventory) and save at the SAVE POINT.  Enter the next set
of doors down the hall to the right and you will see three girls standing at a
table.  Turn around and along the wall by the door where you came in is Wonder
Chef again, he will teach you the Kebab Sandwich recipe.  Talk to the guard at
the top of the stairs and Raven leaves the party.  Head back to the inn and
rest, in the morning go down towards the docks again where you meet Regaey.  He
asks you to meet him inside the coliseum.  Keep going south and find the
distressed looking couple by where you found the smoking cauldron earlier.
They mention people have been disappearing at night, so sleep at the inn and
Yuri will learn "Shining Eagle" after seeing someone catch the bad end of it by
the docks.  Enter the coliseum lobby and up the stairs you will find Duke
again.  After your conversation with him, talk to Regaey who gets you to enter
the tournament.  Save and talk to the girls at the registration desk and you
will begin the fights.

NOTE: Be sure to use a Magic Lens on the four enemies you are about to fight!
      Also, put Rita in your party before registering, this will help you out
      with the Secret Mission that is coming up soon.

FIGHT: Erungar/Jugem/Johan
       Not much of a challenge here.  Just plain old enemies with a decent
       amount of HP.  Standard attacks will work just fine here, no need to
       pull out all the stops on these pushovers.  Finish these with haste and
       you get to the undefeated champion...

FIGHT: Flynn  
       Flynn will hit you with some devestating attack, but don't worry, once
       your health drops down or you simply spend about 10 seconds in the
       fight, you will have your fight interrupted by an annoying pest again.


-----------------
BOSS BATTLE: Zagi
-----------------

NOTE: Zagi has a new attachment on his arm that will collect magic if you try
      and use it against him.  If you have Rita in your party, just have here
      continuously throw her Fireball spell at him, other wise just have your
      party members all throw magic.  He will lift his arm and collect the
      magic as it gets near him and eventually it will turn from green to red.
      Once enough is collected the arm will explode and you will complete the
      secret mission.

MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON ZAGI.

  You've fought Zagi a number of times before, he is no different this time
  either so just follow the same strategy from prior encounters.  He is big on
  the close encounter attacks so if possible, keep your distance and run in
  once his combos are done.  Block often, block often, block often!  You will
  receive Dice and a Drain Charm for beating Zagi.


After defeating Zagi again, you'll run into a couple of random enemies that
enter the ring.  Regaey will run off with your Red Box that you collected from
the pirate ship earlier, Repede and Judith take off after him.  Make your way
back towards the inn and Judith will rejoin you, then go toward the exit
leading you to the world map and Repede rejoins.  Follow the path outside of
Noropolica and eventually you will hit a cavern in the side of the mountain
range.



                         ----------------------------
                         AREA: Weasand of Cados (QT4)
                         ----------------------------

ITEMS:

8000 Gald               x1 Silver Circlet
x1 Aquamarine           x1 Silver Hat
x1 Avenger's Scroll     x1 Simple Tent
x1 Jiraiya              x1 Spike Bow
x1 Limit Bottle         x1 Spine Ripper
x1 Mighty Guard         x1 Verbena
x3 Seal Bottle          x1 War Harpoon


Upon entering, Repede will drag Regaey out from his hiding spot but he gets
away after some guild members attack you.  Follow the path and on your left you
will hit a chest containing three Seal Bottles.  Next to it on the right is
another chest with a Limit Bottle.  The path foks slightly ahead, the one on
the right leading down takes you to a Mighty Guard.  Going on the left/upward
path runs you into another fork.  Below takes you to a VERY large monster.


-----------------------------
GIGANTO MONSTER: Hermit Drill
-----------------------------

MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON HERMIT DRILL

  Hermit Drill is definitely beatable at this point but it is up to you if you
  want to fight him or not, he is not blocking the path that continues the
  story.  If you do choose to fight him, make sure your party is equipped
  properly before entereing the battle.  A lot of the time you can get in some
  cheap hits by simply free running and letting the rest of your party attack
  him.  He tends to focus on the leader and not attacking anyone else unless
  you are stationary.  If he balls up, block so that all of his spikes don't
  knock you unconscious like the rest of your party.  Try to keep your distance
  when possible unless going for a Over Limit combo.  He is large and kind of
  awkward so running right up on him isn't the easiest thing in the world.  You
  will get the "Big Game Greenhorn" achievement for defeating him.


Beyond where Hermit Drill was standing is a chest with 8000 Gald in it and the
other path behind him gets you a Verbena.  Go to the upper path you just came
from and you run into a spoon.  (Kidding, it's another fork).  The bottom path
leads to a Spike Bow and the upper puts you into another room.  Underneath the
bridge in this new room are two chests, one with a War Harpoon and the other is
an Aquamarine.  Going over the bridge and looping around will put you by a
chest with an Avenger's Scroll and beyond that Regaey is still running.  A flow
of aer blocks your path but a giant flying monster drops in, eats the aer and
flies off.  Continue on to the SAVE POINT and take the path leading directly
north, a chest is at the end with a Jiraiya.  Backtrack and take the one
straight to the left, a chest is at another dead end with a Spine Ripper.
Finally, enter the middle path and follow the bottom path and grab the Silver
Circlet at the end.  Return to the middle upper path and into the room ahead
and save at the SAVE POINT.  Ragaey ends up being Yeager in disguise, he makes
his getaway and you are thrown into a boss fight.


---------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Pteropus
---------------------

NOTE: After hitting the first form a few times, the bats will all break up into
      single units that you can attack.  There are numerous Magic and Attack
      Bats, but only one Leader Bat.  Naturally, this will be your target.
      Attack Leader Bat only Secret Mission, defeat the Leader Bat first, don't
      attack the Magic Bats or Attack Bats.  Killing the Leader Bat first will
      get you the secret mission achievement.

MAKE SURE TO USE MAGIC LENSES ON BOTH THE FIRST FORM AND THE SEPERATE UNITS.

  Pteropus is probably one of the easiest boss battles you will encounter.
  Follow the directions in the NOTE above to gain the secret achievement.
  Taking out the leader bat means they won't group up and attack in a single
  form again.  Instead, you are basically left to deal with about ten or so
  smaller and easy to beat enemies.  No real strategy here, just do whatever
  you do to take out regular enemies and it works just fine.  You will get a
  Rebirth Ring for beating Pteropus.


Before exiting the room, open the chest at the bottom part of the boss battle
room, there is a Simple Tent inside and hidden to the left of that is a Silver
Hat.  You can now exit the caves and head towards the next town, an oasis
literally in the middle of nowhere.

NOTE: Before entering the next town, exit the caves and go back inside to where
      the SAVE POINT and aer krene is.  You will meet up with Duke again and
      your party grows increasingly frustrated with his motives and attitude.



                          -------------------
                          TOWN: Mantaic (YJ0)
                          -------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Adventurer's Canteen
x1 Barrel Canteen
x1 Chic Canteen
x1 Expensive Canteen
x1 Glass Marble
x1 Kid's Canteen
x1 Mother's Memento
x1 Plain Canteen
x1 Stylish Canteen

RECIPE: Curry


Head north at the first intersection in town, when you reach the second one,
you can find Wonder Chef disguised as a bouncing cactus behind some trees.  He
will teach you the recipe for Curry.  Also right here where you found Wonder
Chef, you can talk to the tree behind the guard and find out it's Wonder
Reporter too!  Talk to both of them, then round up your party scattered around
town like back in Capua Torim.  Here are their locations:

  - Estelle is standing by the oasis
  - Karol is by the entrance where you came into town
  - Rita is sitting inside the inn
  - Raven is standing outside of the inn
  - Judith can be found if you try to exit towards the left of town

  Speak with all of them, then approach the inn.  Estelle chooses to leave your
  group but you will, naturally, tag along anyway.  Judith will earn the
  "Trophy Wife" title after this scene.  Rest at the inn and you will receive:
  Adventurer's, Barrel, Chic, Expensive, Kid's, Plain, and Stylish Canteen from
  the innkeeper.  Stay the night again and after a scene where another blastia
  ends up getting destroyed, Judith learns the "Moonlight Talon" arte.  Rest
  one more time and Estelle will give you her Mother's Memento by the oasis.
  In the morning, go fill the canteens up by the water at the back of town and
  you will offer to help some children find their parents that have been taken
  into the desert.  They will give you a Glass Marble as payment for your help.

Before entering, make sure you have a couple of Paralysis Ward's equipped on
your party, the enemies in this area are heavy on the paralysis effects.  You
will spend a lot of unnecessary time and money buying up and using potions to
cure this when the ward's can do this job for you.  The following maps are a
rough outline of the desert areas, they are pretty large so I couldn't get it
exact but the map takes this general shape:

After hitting the exit from this first area, you will find yourself at a small

water along the bottom side between the rocks are three Air Stones.  Behind the
SAVE POINT is a chest containing a Riot.  Enter the next part of the desert
via the northern exit.

---------------------------------
GIGANTO MONSTER: Medusa Butterfly
---------------------------------

MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON MEDUSA BUTTERFLY

  Medusa Butterfly is very similar to the last Giganto Monster you faced in the
  caverns in that he tends to target you instead of your teammates.  He gains
  Over Limits fairly quickly and since he is seeking you, free run away from
  him as much as possible when he is in this state.  The best strategy for this
  fight is to THROW ATTACKS LIKE CRAZY AT HIM AT ALL TIMES!  He's got some
  strikes that hit a large radius and a number of party members that throws you
  to a quick death.  Simply run up, over limit, beat the living hell out of him
  and don't stop.  You will get multiple guard breaks like this and as long as
  you keep the heat on him, he won't be able to attack at all.  Soon your party
  will surround him and with everyone smashing him all at once, he stands no
  chance!


After picking up the chests in this area, head towards the SAVE POINT at the
top left of the area.  You will meet the parents of the children from back in
town and tell them to stay put in the meantime.  Save, exit the area and you
will be put into a boss fight in the next section of the desert.


-----------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Outbreaker
-----------------------

NOTE: Equip Yuri's "Severing Fang" arte to one of your shortcuts.  You will
      notice that Outbreak occassionally spits an orb out of his mouth, when he
      does this, use your arte and Yuri will jump in the air hitting both the
      orb and Outbreaker himself.  The orb needs to be hit just a few times
      before it is destroyed, it will change colors letting you know if you've
      hit it.  Smack it a few times and you will complete the mission.

MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON OUTBREAKER.

  Outbreaker is a flying enemy so you will have to rely less on your straight
  ahead physical attacks and focus more on your spells and artes that strike
  above.  In the time that you are able to attain the Secret Mission, you
  should have taken off a significant amount of his HP.  He's got a few attacks
  that do a mild amount of damage, so if needed you can surrender some HP to
  get in there and start knocking damage off him without needing to worry about
  getting wiped out.  Focus on your artes, focus on the magic.  You will
  receive a Mysterious Piece and World Charm for defeating Outbreaker.


After the battle your party will pass out from exhaustion.  Seems like all
hope is lost...



                         -------------------
                         TOWN: Yormgen (EA8)
                         -------------------

ITEMS:

x1 All Divide
x1 Clear Ciel Crystal
x1 Hourglass
x1 Limit Bottle
x1 Phaeroh's Feather
x1 Simple Tent
x1 Strange Mark

RECIPE: Croquette

You will wake up in a mysterious hotel room.  Inside where you are sleeping, on
the left is an Hourglass and an All Divide, and to the right you can find
Wonder Chef bobbing back and forth.  He will teach you the recipe for
Croquette.  Outside you meet with the rest of your party and obtain Phaeroh's
Feather.  Outside of the inn between the two buildings is a Limit Bottle.  Go
north on the path leading along side of the inn and onto the balcony where
umbrellas and tables are set up.  Speak with the girl in the green dress named
Yuefan here.  She will open the Red Box for you and you obtain the Clear Ciel
Crystal.  Open the chest near where she is standing for a Simple Tent then make
your way to the building at the top of the hill to see the sage.  Upon
entering, you see a familiar face again, Duke.  He destroys your newly acquired
Clear Ciel Crystal and leaves you with more questions than answers again and
the party splits up for the time being.  Enter the Sages house again and search
the corner behind Rita for a Strange Mark.

  - Rita is inside the sages house.
  - Raven is on the hill left hill leading up to the sages house.
  - Karol is on the balcony by where you met Yuefan.
  - Estelle and Repede are by the inn, shop.

NOTE: Cook Croquette with Judith until you gain the Tempura recipe.



                         --------------------
                         Backtracking 3 (SK2)
                         --------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Apatheia, Cyano Ciel Crystal
x1 Book of Friendship
x1 Bread
x1 Comrade Crest
x1 Milk
x1 Miracle Gel
x1 Sinclair Saber


After speaking with your party, stay at the inn and in the morning go towards
the exit over the bridge.  It's off through the Sands of Kogorh and into
Mantaic.  Cumore is in town and is forcing more residents into the desert, but
Yuri has a plan.  Karol sabotages the carriage and buys everyone some time.
Speak with the children in the path near where you found Wonder Chef earlier
and the parents will thank you for saving them by giving you a Miracle Gel.
Judith will give the kids their Glass Marble back.  Speak with the innkeeper to
stay the night.  Yuri takes another one of his midnight strolls and helps
Cumore to his death.  Meet with Flynn by the water and you will have your usual
disagreement.  In the morning, exit the town and enter right back again.  You
may notice that the little barrier set up by the inn is gone, head to the back
of the inn right by where the entrance is and you will see a child wearing a
cow suit (named Kowz, coincidentally).  Give him an Apple Gel and he will
introduce you to Ant Lion Man and also gives you Milk.  Also, speak with the
man towards where the water is at and he will assign you a guild job.  Speak
with Yu who can be found right outside of the inn and he asks you to deliver a
book for him.  You will receive the Book of Friendship and a Comrade Crest.  As
you approach the Wesand of Cados, a traveler tells you Flynn has barricaded the
mountains.  Raven cooks up a distraction and you're through with relative ease.

  Once inside the first room, you can find a Sinclair Saber on the path heading
  down.  Backtrack through the caves just as you came through them before and
  when approaching the exit you are seemingly trapped.  Raven pulls another
  strange trick and you make your escape.  Enter into Nordopolica again and
  sleep at the inn.  Speak with the guard in front of the door and enter
  Belius' room at the top of the steps.  After a brief conversation, the
  Hunting Blades will burst in and start a fight.  The Duce can fend for
  herself so meet with Natz down in the coliseum.  Inside there is a lot of
  commotion, you will defeat a couple other minor enemies and Estelle will
  attempt to heal the Duce.  It reacts negatively to her healing and you are
  forced to battle against her.

-------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Belius
-------------------

NOTE: After taking a fair amount of damage, Belius will split into two forms.
      During this event, she will extinguish the candles circling the area you
      are fighting in.  You will need to light these four candles by targeting
      them and using Yuri's Destruction Field arte on them.  Before lighting
      them, make sure you use a Magic Lens on the (Double) as it will disappear
      once these have all been lit!

MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON BELIUS AND BELIUS (DOUBLE)

Keep your distance from Belius when she goes into Over Limit!  Her attacks are
quick and brutal, use Artes that don't require you to be right next to her to
hit.  I highly suggest following the directions above for the secret mission to
eliminate a major part of this battle: the Belius Double.  It is, obviously,
easier to deal with one Belius instead of two.  Not much of strategy I can give
here, just run n' gun.  You will receive an Emerald Ring and an Ice Coffin for
defeating her.


  [SPOILERS!!] Belius will turn into a crystal after dying.  The Hunting Blades
  threaten to take the crystal but Sodia and the imperial knights show up and
  spoil the fun.  Make your way towards the docks and Raven will leave your
  party.  You run into Flynn who allows you to pass and the ship sets sail.
  Raven shows up out of nowhere with Harry, the Don's grandson.  Judith will
  destroy the blastia letting Rita in on her secret this whole time, and
  Judith will take off on Ba'ul leaving your party.  Save at the SAVE POINT and
  talk to the rest of the party on the top deck.  Rest after speaking to them
  and you will gain control of your ship again.  Travel to Zaphias and enter
  Yuri's room, Ted will run in and tell you to patch things up with Flynn and
  gives you some Bread.  Grab your boat and sail over to Dahngrest, Karol and
  Raven will run off to an important meeting while the rest of the crew can
  sleep at the inn.  In the morning, there is a lot of noise outside,
  apparently a group from Palestralle was seen in the Heliord area and a guild
  war is possible.  When you are ready, head out to the west into your next
  area.


                        -------------------------------
                        AREA: Manor of the Wicked (VT1)
                        -------------------------------

ITEMS:

7000 Gald              x1 Lemon Gel
x1 Apple Gel           x1 Limit Bottle
x1 Crimson Axe         x5 Magic Lens
x1 Gothic Guard        x1 Orange Gel
x1 Gothic Plate        x1 Panacea Bottle
x1 Grim Cardian        x1 Ruby Wand
x1 Holy Bottle         x1 Stone Slasher
x1 Imperial Crest


You will have to fight a couple baddies when you first enter, there are a few
more patrolling outside you can take it as well.  Once inside you will see the
Don upstairs and your party will get attacked again, afterwards you are free to
roam around.  On the far left side of the room among some boxes is 7000 Gald.
In the back of the room between the windows is a Lemon Gel, then to the right
of that by the steps is a Gothic Plate.  Begin entering the doors along the
hallway.  Although there are a couple rooms that are empty, you can still fight
some enemies in here and gain a decent amount of Gald from each fight.

    DOOR 1: Grim Cardian
    DOOR 2: Orange Gel
    DOOR 3: Apple Gel
    DOOR 4: NOTHING!
    DOOR 5: Panacea Bottle, Holy Bottle

  Upstairs before you hit the SAVE POINT by the grandfather clock is a Gothic
  Guard.  Right past the SAVE POINT in a chest is a Ruby Wand and in the flower
  pot right next to it are 5 Magic Lenses.  Begin entering the doors along the
  hallway again.

    DOOR 1: NOTHING!
    DOOR 2: Crimson Axe
    DOOR 3: Limit Bottle
    DOOR 4: Stone Slasher

NOTE: [MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!!]

When you enter the final door, Yeager will disappear and you hand over the
Apatheia, Cyano Ciel Crystal to the Don (what's with giving away all of your
items lately?). The Don runs off, leaving you to clean up a couple more enemies
and you can go back to Dahngrest when you're ready.  In the center of town, the
Don offers his own life to make up for what happened to Belius.  Yuri offers to
take on the role he is giving up, the Don thanks him and commits suicide.
After speaking with Estelle and Rita, go find Karol sitting outside the tavern
(the one in the western part of town).  After speaking with Yuri, he will earn
the "Troubled One" title.  Meet Estelle towards the entrance of town and then
Rita on the bridge leading into the town.  The party will jump on the boat and
reunite with Karol and Raven.  Before moving into the new section, go back into
Dahngrest again.

  Sleep at the inn for a scene with Karol where he will earn the "Insomniac"
  title.  Continue to sleep here until you get a couple more scenes with Harry
  and the Don's sword.    Eventually, Karol will learn the "Special" skill.
  Visit the pub heading towards the left from the center of the town and
  Estelle will heal a wounded soldier.  Outside, Drake will speak with you and
  give you the Imperial Crest.  Re-enter the pub and Raven will speak with an
  acquaintance of his.  You will hear more about this later.  When ready, head
  to your next area.  Instead of landing at Nordopolica, there is a small beach
  right by Yormgen you can land your boat on and avoid a long trip.  Directly
  above where you land is Mt. Temza.



                         ---------------------
                         AREA: Mt. Temza (PH0)
                         ---------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Aries                   x1 Melange Gel
x1 Ba'ul's Horn            x1 Red Lavender
x1 Crimson Phoenix +1      x1 Red Sage
x1 Deadly Horn             x1 Saffron
x1 Ever Blue               x1 Specific
x1 Feather Coat            x1 Tent
x1 Grand Scepter           x1 Transform Bow
x1 Lemon Gel               x1 Treat
x1 Limit Bottle            x1 Tribal Guard


Right at the top of the hill on the left as you enter is a chest with a Tent.
In the next area you can go into the valley path to your left or up the
mountain path on your right.  Take the valley path first, as you come up the
hill you will run into a chest with a Red Sage and right beyond that is
Saffron.  Go back to the mountain path and it will fork (kind of hidden among
the rocky landscape), take the right path first to grab a Deadly Horn, then
back up the left one.  You will find a Lemon Gel where the path starts to zig
zag and as you continue on there is a Crimson Phoenix +1 up a bit more.  Hidden
to the right of where the bridge starts is a Specific and a Treat. [SPOILERS!!]
Cross over to the city ruins to find Judith handling some Hunting Blades.
After you regain control, get the Melange Gel from the chest right where the
bridge ends and the Grand Scepter to the right of the SAVE POINT by the second
bridge.  There is a Giganto Monster in the valley where you first entered Mt.
Temza.  You do not have to fight Nan before this will appear so feel free to
backtrack and battle this if you wish.  I am not sure exactly at what point it
appears as I just happened to pass it on the way back to town before fighting
the boss.


---------------------------
GIGANTO MONSTER: Pterobronc
---------------------------

  Pterobronc is easier than you might think.  Before entering battle, be sure
  to stock up on Life Bottles, and TP recovery items (like Orange Gels).  I
  chose Rita, Estelle, and Raven as my party.  With Rita, turn off all of her
  artes except Fire Ball, Spiral Flare, Stalagmite, and Tractor Beam.  For
  Raven, turn off his Wind Blade and Arrivederci.  This will get rid of all the
  artes that are not very effective against him.  He has some terribly powerful
  attacks, just watch the pattern he goes in so you know his style, then avoid
  him when he's doing a spinning attack with his wings out and following with a
  beam attack.  Attack from behind or directly under him as this will allow you
  to complete your combos.  Attacking from the front simply allows him to break
  your combo then demolish you with one of his own.  Keep your crew stocked on
  TP as they will be throwing spells like crazy.  Keep attacking from the back
  with your artes and your party as a whole can join in and get you a huge
  damage combo.  You will get a Great Raptor Beak synth item for beating him as
  well as the usual tons of experience and gald.


Just as you come across there is a path leading down that takes you to a
Transform Bow.  Going along the main path there is a chest hidden among some
shrubs on your right with an Aries.  In the next area you will see a small path
leading up right as you come in.  At the bottom of this path is a Tribal Guard,
and at the top there is a chest monster you can fight earning you a Limit
Bottle.  Continue up the main way and grab the Red Lavender, then save at the
SAVE POINT.  [SPOILERS!!] You meet with Judith again and she finally reveals
why she has been destroying blastia this whole time.  Rita is understandably
confused and upset but cannot fault her for her actions.  You are interrupted
by the Hunting Blades again who are seeking out Ba'ul and you will have to
tangle with them before moving on.


--------------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Nan and Tison
--------------------------

NOTE:  This is a two-part secret mission.  Your enemy will perform an attack
       and pause for a moment, this is the time that you need to strike them.
       The object is to do a knock down attack while they are motionless for a
       second or two.  Tison will use an arte where big yellow serpent looking
       things come up from the ground.  Right after he does this he will sit
       still and you can do your move (Azure Wolf for example is a knock down
       attack).  Nan will perform a move where rocks will come up from the
       ground, then she jumps up and her ring shaped weapon will get stuck in
       the ground with her on top of it.  While she is standing on her weapon
       motionless you can do your attack again.  You will get a "Great!" after
       both of them, you need both for the Secret Mission achievement.

BE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON BOTH NAN AND TISON.

  The key here is to keep the two seperated and focus on killing one of them at
  a time.  Having them close means they will constantly interrupt your attacks
  and it becomes a giant pain.  I chose to take on Tison first as his attacks
  come a bit more quickly and hurt more.  Not to mention Nan will occassionally
  heal herself, effectively undoing a lot of the damage you've already done.
  Killing Tison first means you can focus all of your efforts on Nan at the
  same time so she doesn't have time to heal.  Both of them tend to throw a
  barrage of attacks all the time, so timing is key.  Watch their attacks, see
  how the pattern works, and strike when they leave an opening.  If possible,
  back them into a corner so they can't run everywhere like they normally do
  and get a long combo going, boxing them in helps end this fight extremely
  quick.  You will receive a Special Flag, Death Scythe, Protect Ring, and
  Resist Ring for defeating Nan and Tison (not bad!).


Before entering the cavern behind the boss battle area, go up the path to the
left and there is an Ever Blue in a chest, then up a bit more for a Feather
Coat inside the little cave.  [SPOILERS!!] Enter the cavern and you will find
Ba'ul trying to evolve.  Estelle almost heals/kills another one of his kind but
stops before she does something crazy again.  Ba'ul evolves and you strap your
boat to its belly and take off.  Judith will pass out and you once again will
need to talk to all of your party members around the deck.

There are a lot of places you will need to run around to in this part so I'll
try to organize it as efficiently as possible.  You should be able to follow
the scenes in this order:

NOTE!!      - I forgot to mention this before but if you have not done so yet,
              go back to the King of Adventures camp right above Halure and
              speak with Rich.  If you have been defeating the Giganto Monsters
              so far, he will give you a couple items.  A Medusa Scale for the
              Butterfly, a Fragment of the Skies for Hermit Drill, and a
              Pterobronc Claw for defeating Pterobronc.  Speak to him again and
              he reveals the location of the remaining six.  You will get to
              them later, don't worry about it right now.

Ehmead Hill - Go in the the way you did on your initial visit to this area and
              approach the broken blastia.  You will have a scene that
              continues on in Aspio after you are done here.

            - On the side that you first exited Ehmead Hill from, you can go up
              in the woods and there is a decent sized clearing to your right.
              Raven will talk about some flowers and you collect a Fire Lily.

            - Go to the cliff area where you overlooked the ocean earlier for
              a scene by the monument.

Aspio       - After seeing the blastia in Ehmead Hill, go to the library, there
              is a shelf you can search right by the Inn and SAVE POINT.  You
              will collect Hermes' Notes.

Capua Torim - Speak with the woman beneath the tree outside of the Fortune's
              Market HQ.

            - Enter the inn and you will find Yu's friend and deliver the Book
              of Friendship to him.  He will give you a Rainbow Bookmark as
              proof of delivery for Yu back in Mantaic.

            - After getting the Hermes' Notes, sleep at the inn here and Rita
              will learn "Negative Gate"

            - Enter the Fortune's Market HQ and speak with Kaufman.

Dahngrest   - Enter the shop (not the one at the inn, the actual shop) and talk
              to the clerk to inquire about Judith's spear.

            - There will be a female in the town circle, she is wearing a witch
              hat.  Her and Raven will have a brief conversation.  Then
              approach the Union HQ and Raven will turn away a young girl who
              is crazy about him.  He will receive the "Ladies' Man" title.

            - Enter the Union HQ and you get approached by a guild member.  He
              asks you to speak with Kaufman for him.

            - Go to the tavern on the left side of the circle and speak with
              the woman behind the bar.  This will allow you to start the
              Waiter/Waitress mini game.  Finish the mini game with all of the
              possible characters.

              - Complete with Estelle to earn "Gracious Waitress" title.
              - Complete with Karol to earn "Lunch Lady" title.
              - Complete with Rita to earn "Kitty Cat Waitress" title.
              - Complete with Judith to earn "Glamourous Maid" title.
              - Complete with Raven to earn "Gentleman" title.

            - Now that you have completed the waiter/waitress game and
              collected the titles for everyone, you should have collected
              enough titles for the Bunny Guild.  Go into the Union HQ and in
              the first room there is a man in the back left corner by himself.
              Talk to him and he will ask to help him with the Bunny Guild.
              Accept his offer and he will give you Girly Bunny Ears and a
              Bunny Guild Badge.

Capua Torim - Go back to Torim and speak with Kaufman after talking to the man
              inside the HQ at Dahngrest.

Nordopolica - Go up the steps leading to the coliseum and you will watch a
              scene with Natz.  Enter the colisueum area and talk to him again
              in front of Belius' entrance.

            - Enter the coliseum and talk to the girls at the reception desk.
              The melee events are now available for you to complete.  There
              are various ones to enter and various prizes you can earn.  MORE
              DETAILS ABOUT THIS LATER!

Mantaic     - Deliver the Rainbow Bookmark to Yu who (yoohoo!) is right in
              front of the inn.  He will give you 3000 Gald as payment.

            - Talk to the boy in the cow suit behind the inn and give him a
              Trident.  He will give you Rice, a Potato, an Onion, and a
              Carrot.

            - Go towards the water at the back of the town, speak to the man
              sitting with the kids.  Sleep at the inn and go towards the water
              again for a scene with the mysterious man.

Dahngrest   - After dropping the Bookmark off to Yu in Mantaic, talk to the
              bartender on the right inside the tavern with the waiter/waitress
              minigame.  The client, Rhianna, will be at the inn in this city.
              After accepting the job and meeting Karol outside, go to the
              bridge leading out of the city.  A tip leads you to Heliord, go
              to the workers camp and talk to the girl above where the outhouse
              is by the water.  She will trade you the Everlight Necklace for a
              Bird Feather (Small).  Deliver the necklace to Rhianna back in
              Dahngrest to complete the job.

Mantaic     - Enter the inn and you will see a guild member exiting the
              building.  Agree to stay at the inn and Karol will have a quick
              scene with Judith.


After completing this significant list of side quests, take Ba'ul over near the
desert.  You will see a giant pile of rocks in the middle that can only be
accessed by flying.  [SPOILERS!!] Phaeroh will show up as you reach the top and
reveal the reason that he wants to kill Estelle.  The group makes a deal with
him to let her live but Rita wants to investigate further.  Go back to Aspio
and you will see a Krityan in the center of town.  Make Judith your party
leader (so that she is the on screen character) and talk to this person.  He
will tell you where the Krityan city is located and gives you the Guide Bell to
Myorzo.  Meet your party back at Rita's house and in the morning you can leave
towards your next destination.  Right below Nordopolica on the continent beside
it is a small forest area with a mountain-like structure peaking over the top
of the trees.



                       --------------------------
                       AREA: Egothor Forest (LW9)
                       --------------------------

ITEMS:

12000 Gald          x1 Mythril Boots
x1 Bulsis' Mirror   x1 Mythril Helm
x1 Gaia Cleaver     x1 Overdrive Warrior
x1 Lavender         x1 Panacea Bottle
x1 Life Bottle      x1 Queen's Whip
x1 Limit Bottle     x1 Red Saffron
x5 Magic Lens       x1 Sage
x1 Melange Gel      x1 Tent


Right as you come in, there is a chest to your right with a Panacea Bottle, up
the path just a bit on the left is a Gaia Cleaver.  Continue on and as the path
starts to twist there are 5 Magic Lenses in a chest out in the open.  Up ahead
you run into a laughable attempt by the Imperial Knights at stopping you.  Go
up the path leading north by the first bridge.  At the top below where the
suspension bridge starts is a Mythril Helm, cross it and you will see a chest
in the back with a Tent.  At the top you will try and take down the blastia
that was shooting at you.  After you regain control, go down the hill and take
that first bridge to your right and cross another small one.  The path leading
up has a chest outside with a Limit Bottle and a Queen's Whip right next to
eachother.  Enter the cave and it will take you to the next area.

  The path ahead forks in a number of directions.  Take the first right you see
  and it will lead to a chest with a Life Bottle, then go to the path heading
  north and it will bring you to another chest with 3000 Gald.  The
  middle/right path then will loop you around to a SAVE POINT.  The path going
  up from here continues to the story, but the one going east will take you to
  a Giaganto Monster and a few more chests.  Take the east path, then go north
  once it forks, it will lead you up to two chests right beside eachother.  One
  contains a Turquoise, the other is a chest monster that gives you 9000 Gald.
  Go back and take the southern path and hang a left at the bottom, the chest
  will have a Mythril Circlet.  To the right is your next Giganto Monster.  If
  you cannot beat him at this point, YOU CAN COME BACK LATER with a stronger
  party so don't worry if you need to skip this for now.


-----------------------
GIGANTO MONSTER: Brucis
-----------------------

Brucis' attacks are VERY quick and do a good amount of damage.  He's got strong
front facing attacks and can kick behind him as well.  Fortunately, he doesn't
attack to the side so there is your opportunity.  Stay to his side as much as
possible so that he cannot fend off your blows, you'll probably want to keep
two healers in your party (like Estelle and Raven) and then have two attackers.
I chose Repede as he has a good amount of health and he can keep Brucis busy
with direct attacks while he leave Yuri and your healers alone for the most
part.  He's got a ton of health so you'll need to do some pretty big OverLimit
combos to take off chunks of his 200,000+ health bar.  He's not resistant to
anything special so throw whatever you've got at him.  Just get out of his way
if you see him jump in the air, otherwise you're in for a hard hit.  I remember
equipping a skill that stopped you from getting stunned so much, USE THAT.  He
has a lot of stun moves.  You will get a Bull Wing for defeating Brucis.


  Below the Giganto Monster area, there is a path that runs you into a set of
  Mythril Boots.  Continue and it takes you back to the first area you were in,
  however now you are in a lower section.  The path will split here, one going
  left and up and the other slightly right and down.  Take the left/up path and
  there is a chest with a Sage on your right, then above that near the
  waterfall is an Overdrive Warrior (a new Costume attachment for Repede).  Go
  back and take the other path, you'll come across Lavender and Red Saffron in
  a couple chests down here.  Now that this area is cleared you can take the
  path going north from the SAVE POINT and to the other blastia cannon.  Along
  the way you will find a Melange Gel in a chest, then you will encounter a
  couple waves of Imperial Soldiers.  [SPOILERS!!]  The crew will hold off the
  soldiers until Rita can finally finish stopping the cannon.  Judith will ring
  the bell you received earlier and the floating city will appear.

NOTE: Before entering the floating city, go back to the King of Adventures camp
      (sitting right above Halure) and talk to Rich.  He will give you Bulsis'
      Mirror for defeating Brucis.

Up the first ramp there are piles of broken items laying around, among them is

you will see what looks like an ice cream cone, of course it's Wonder Chef!  He
will teach you the Cream Stew recipe.  Towards the back of this first ground
level area, you will see a big wooden door.  This will take you into the Myorzo
Warehouse game.  The following map will lead you through it:

Enter the Elder's house and watch the scene, Estelle will take off after a
revelation about her.  A treat and a Specific are at the back of this room on
either side of the screen.  Exit the house and go down to the area where your
ship is at, seems Estelle and Raven have gone missing.  Go inside the town and
talk to a few people including the elder, then exit back out to your ship and
the elder will speak with you.  Judith gains the title "Guardian of the Truth"
and also you receive Dragoon Boots.

NOTE: Be sure to sleep at the inn/unused house in this town before leaving for
      a scene!

--------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Schwann
--------------------

NOTE: You may only have one or two opportunities to complete this so make it
      count!  Schwann will go into overlimit then do a Arte attack on you that
      hits the entire area.  When you see it coming, block as fast as possible.
      Chances are you will fall down so mash the X button to recover, then run
      over to him where you will see him kind of bent over and clutching his
      chest.  You need to hit him while he is in this state, the easiest way is
      to use an Arte attack like Ghost Wolf.  He will fall back and you will
      complete the Secret Mission.

BE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON SCHWANN.

Schwann is a pretty straightforward battle.  His attacks are more annoying than
they are dangerous.  One thing that does allow you to give a lot of damage
without taking any is to get him knocked down.  While he is on the ground,
continue to combo him and he will constantly take hits and keep laying down.
You can sit here and combo him for a while until someone does a pop up attack,
but you should be able to put him right back down again.  Keep him in a
continuous combo and he's no problem, very easy battle to win.  You will
receive a Force Ring and an Imperial Prestige for defeating Schwann.


  Outside, Leblanc and his cohorts show up demanding to know what happened.
  They will let you pass, your next stop is in the ocean south of Zaphias to
  find Heracles.  Get ready for a long fight ahead because you will be in this
  next area for a long time!

NOTE: Before hitting the Heracles, stop at Deidon Hold and go on the roof of
      the guard's area where you met Duke the first time, he will be up here
      again for another scene.



                         --------------------
                         AREA: Heracles (IH7)
                         --------------------

ITEMS:

10000 Gald                 x2 Pineapple Gel
x1 Dark Bottle             x1 Reflex
x1 Guardian Stamp          x1 Rose Whip
x1 Holy Bottle             x1 Specific
x2 Lemon Gel               x1 Sorcerer's Ring Lv. 3
x1 Life Bottle             x1 Tent
x1 Limit Bottle            x1 Treat
x5 Magic Lens              x1 Vagabond
x1 Melange Gel             x1 Wonder Symbol
x1 Panacea Bottle


[SPOILERS!!] Your crew lands and Leblanc shows up trying to attack you again.
Fear not, Raven is back!  He has them stand down and your crew beats the hell
out of him, but he joins again.  He will also earn the "Immortal Old Man"
title.  Follow the walkway all the way left and down the steps, when you reach
the second set of stairs there will be a chest at the bottom with a Life
Bottle.  The next set takes you to the bottom level, there is a Limit Bottle on
the right, then enter the door on the left.  Inside you will approach some aer
and the Sorcerer's Ring reacts to it.  You will gain Sorcerer's Ring Lv. 3,
which can now break through places you previously couldn't enter.  There is a
door just to the left of where you got your new ring.  You may notice a (?)
appear over your head, use the ring when you see this.  Inside the door is a
Reflex and a Holy Bottle.  Left of this is another door that has a Melange Gel
inside, then left of that door is another containing a Wonder Symbol.

  Take the steps down and there is a ladder right below you, on the walkway you
  will run into a Lemon Gel.  Back up and to the left is another ladder where
  you can find a Pineapple Gel, then activate the control panel above this.
  Enter the large set of doors and the party spots the engine room below.  You
  may also notice a SAVE POINT down here, you can go down and save whenever
  you'd like, however don't walk beyond that on the bottom floor yet.  To your
  left is a set of doors that has a Dark Bottle.  Take the path leading all the
  way right and exit to the outside.  On this bottom level is a Panacea Bottle,
  on the third level to the far left is a Treat.  Enter the door at the very
  top and follow the path inside.  You'll eventually hit a door on the far left
  and a ladder that leads right above that with a box you can move.  You will
  need to clear off a number of gates in the room inside the door.

    YELLOW GATE: Inside the door and towards the bottom of your screen there is
                 a Blastia console with a yellow top on it.  Hit it with your
                 Sorcerer's Ring to shut it down.

    RED GATE:    Take the moveable box at the top of the ladder and drag it to
                 the left and into the next screen.  Destroy the fence at the
                 top of the steps where you are at with your Ring, then push
                 the box over the side and onto the red console below.

    BLUE GATE:   Below the steps there is a ladder leading down.  Climb down
                 and to your right/down there is a retractable ladder.  Drop it
                 down by checking it.  Go back and head left, there is a ladder
                 going up against the back wall that brings you to a ledge
                 where you will find a Guardian Stamp in a chest and also puts
                 you on level with the boxes being carried on claws across the
                 area.  Line yourself up with the blue console below you, then
                 hit a box with your Ring when it is right above it.  The box
                 will drop down and destroy the console below.

    WHITE GATE:  To the left of that ledge you were just on, take the ladder
                 leading down and stand where you can see the white console
                 directly below you and to the right.  There is another row of
                 boxes being carried by claws here.  Same deal, wait until they
                 are sitting right above the white console, hit it with the
                 Ring and it will drop down and destroy it.

    GREEN GATE:  Backtrack up the ladders to around where you first came in
                 this room.  Go across the path where you have been unlocking
                 gates and then check the console that you can now access.
                 Unlock the freight lift and go all the way back down to the
                 very bottom and check the console around where you just
                 destroyed the white gate.  Select the "UPPER LEVEL" option on
                 the console, then go up the ladders to where the lift and box
                 are now sitting.  Push the box to the back left so that it is
                 hugging the wall of the area and off to destroy the green
                 console below.

Now that all of the consoles are destroyed, you can go across the whole bridge
and to the SAVE POINT beyond where the multi-colored gates used to be.  Switch
your character to Karol and enter door after saving.  [SPOILERS!!]  Inside you
find your old friend, Zagi.  He has taken out everyone inside the room and
tells you Alexei has used this giant monstrosity of a weapon as a decoy.  Zagi
will challenge you to yet another fight (has he not learned his lesson yet?!).


-----------------
BOSS BATTLE: ZAGI
-----------------

NOTE: This is probably the easier of the Secret Missions you will have to do.
      At some point during the fight, Zagi will poison himself in order to
      poison everyone else while fighting.  Equip Karol's "Nice Recovery Smash"
      and use it in the radius of Zagi.  This will cure him of his poison and
      get you the secret mission achievement.

BE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON ZAGI.

  This is another straight forward battle.  You should, as before, be VERY
  familiar with Zagi's style of battle.  Nothing has changed, he's still
  furious with the attacks and runs the same combos as before.  Keep him
  cornered and you're fine.  Just follow whatever was working for you on
  previous battles and he'll be gone in no time.  You will get a Dark Seal and
  Poison Charm for defeating Zagi.


[SPOILERS!!]  Rita will shut down the ship but Zagi returns once again to cause
trouble.  He gets Heracles moving again and hurts your party.  Yeager will come
in and Gauche and Droite will kick Zagi out of the window before healing your
party.  Yeager takes off and you're now off to the engine room.  At the bottom
of the steps in this control room is 5 Magic Lenses.  Take the retractable
ladder down, and in the next room enter the big doors that you came through
before where you spotted the engine room at the bottom.  Go down the steps to
the 2nd level.  On the right you can break down a door and find a Rose Whip
inside.  Keep going down the steps until you catch a scene with Sodia.  Right
next to the SAVE POINT is a Specific, on the platform right in front of the
door is a Tent off to the right side.

  Enter the big doors, in the next room at the very back you can use your Ring
  to break the wooden fence and fight a chest monster.  He will give you 10,000
  Gald for killing him.  On the lower side of the room is another fence to
  break, beyond it you can grab a Vagabond.  Go inside to find the aer feeding
  a giant cannon.  Take the right path going up and you will come across a
  Pineappe Gel.  Across the top center you will enter another scene.
  [SPOILERS!!]  Yuri cuts the power to cannon but it still is able to fire.
  Flynn's ships will crush into the side of Heracles knocking its cannon off
  course.  It narrowly misses the city of Zaphias, everything seems safe.
  Cross down the left side of the room and pick up the Lemon Gel along the way.

[SPOILERS!!] After an epic scene with Yuri attempting to save Estelle, Alexei
will still get away with her and your crew ends up crawling their way into
Capua Nor where a doctor tends to their wounds.  Take Yuri outside and a town
official reports that the blast put a giant hole on the other side of Ehmead
Hill, cutting the town off from everyone.  Go back in and speak with the party,
the man you helped here earlier in the game will suggest a route for getting
to the other side of the Hill.  You will need to go north of where Ehmead is at
to a thin strip of land by an ice flow.



                    -----------------------------------
                    AREA: Blade Drifts of Zopheir (EX3)
                    -----------------------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Bloody Coat        x1 Lottery Gel
x1 Body Paint         x5 Magic Lens
x1 Bravior            x1 Melange Gel
x1 Cure Bottle        x1 Panacea Bottle
x1 Diamond Guard      x1 Pineapple Gel
x1 Falcon Needle      x1 Psychedelica
x1 Hades              x1 Seal Bottle
x1 Lemon Gel          x1 Tabar
x1 Life Bottle        x1 Tent
x2 Limit Bottle


On the first ice block you're walking on there is a chest with a Tabar inside,
right beyond that you can see another chest with a Panacea Bottle.  Follow the
path as it hooks right and you run right into a Melange Gel, then the giant
monster swimming below will destory the path ahead.  Backtrack to the new path
it created for you and grab the Lemon Gel from the chest.  Ahead the path will
split, go south first and get the Pineapple Gel then north to get the Limit
Bottle and watch as the monster destorys another path.  Ahead the path will
split again, go north to pick up a Hades, Cure Bottle, and Falcon Needle along
the way.  Once again, monster breaks the path so backtrack to the southern path
of the fork you were just at.  Follow the new route, you'll see a chest with a
Life Bottle just ahead and ahead of that you reach a SAVE POINT.  I reccommend
switching your party to include Judith right now if she isn't already in there.
Right past the save point you can pick up a Diamond Guard, then on a little
path overlooking the giant aer krene crystals is a Tent.  Go up to the krene
and you will be attacked by the pesky monster that has been taunting you the
whole time.


---------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Baitojoh
---------------------

NOTE: During the battle, Baitojoh will sometimes swim below the ice, he is
      either going to stick his fin out or do an icicle attack.  When he is
      sticking his fin out, you will need to run over and hit it a few times to
      stop his attack from below.  You can accomplish this all at once but you
      may have to wait for him to go below multiple times to complete it.
      Simple as that, hit his fin when he's below the ice.

MAKE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON BAITOJOH BOTH WHEN HE'S FIGHTING KAROL AND
WHEN THE REST OF THE PARTY JOINS.

  Initially Karol will be the only one in battle.  YOU DO NOT NEED TO ATTACK
  BAITOJOH DURING THIS TIME.  You will probably have a hard time standing up to
  this enemy with just Karol alone, so free run away from his attacks until the
  rest of the party joins.  As with a previous boss, your best bet is to stay
  behind him whenever possible.  He has a lot of front facing attacks and the
  ones that will hit within a radius of where he is are easily avoidable.  If
  you see him dive below the ice and the icicle crystals come up, you have a
  two second buffer zone to get away from them before they blow up and hit you.
  Equip your party with all of the vertical artes possible as you'll rarely
  find him on the ground.  He's only got a couple of different attacks so
  you'll easily be able to outsmart him once you can see what is coming next.
  You will get a Paralysis Charm and Body Paint for defeating Baitojoh.  Karol
  will also be carrying a Bravior now that you may have seen him grab during a
  cutscene.


Karol will earn the "Brave One" title and is now KO'ed (meaning you won't be
able to use him for a while).  There are 3 paths you can take from here, north,
east, and south.  Take the eastern path first, you will see a chest on top of a
tiny cliff containing a Bloody Coat.  You will want to take the north one next.
To the right of the aer krene is a chest with another Body Paint, the path will
split shortly after this.  Go towards the right first to find a Limit Bottle,
then take the other route.  It's a long path but eventually you will run into 5
Magic Lenses.  Once you pass this, there is a giant ice block on your left
where you will find a Lottery Gel on the north/west part of it.  Take the path
heading left and you will find a Psychedelica and then a Seal Bottle.  The
north and south paths basically form a giant circle so backtrack to around
where you found the giant ice block (where the Lottery Gel was) and exit the
area to the right.


                          -------------------
                          AREA: Zaphias (ZZ8)
                          -------------------


ITEMS:

15000 Gald
x1 Breaker Bow
x1 Elder Cloak
x1 Lapis Lazuli
x1 Limit Bottle
x1 Moon Guard
x1 Spirit Bangle
x1 Transform Bow +1a
x1 Vagabond +1


Make your way around the mountains and down to the Halure area.  Karol will
collapse and need to be taken to the inn.  It seems that the town is full of
refugees from Zaphias.  Speak with the innkeeper and she will get you a room,
at night, Raven will keep an eye on Karol while you go to the mayor's house to
see who's in town.  [SPOILERS!!]  Ioder is here, he tells you about how bad
Zaphias is and that he wasn't able to find anyone from the lower quarter.  Go
back to the inn and into your room.  Yuri and Repede will take a walk alone,
exit the area and Ioder will stop you again.  Once you are out on the world
map, make your way through Quoi Woods and around to the SAVE POINT.  Yuri will
pass out while Repede keeps an eye out.  The rest of the party rejoins and
Repede earns the "Considerate Sidekick" title.  Exit the woods and head towards
Zaphias.

NOTE: Before entering the city, stop at Deidon Hold and go to the top of the
      guard's quarters.  You will meet Duke up here where you found him the
      first time.  You may also notice that the random encounters outside are
      not the same weak enemies they first were.  Be sure to use Magic Lenses
      on all of these new (Aersick) enemy variants.

  Enter Zaphias and go up to the castle gates.  Once inside, go the the room on
  your right then take the door at the top.   Up a little bit you will see
  Hanks and find out that everyone from the lower quarter is OK.  Save at the
  SAVE POINT, and remember that there is still Curry on the stove like before
  so you can regain your HP and TP whenever here.  You have already cleared out
  most of this castle from your first visit so you don't need to go back and do
  it again unless I have noted.  Exit the room and take the left door in this
  hallway into the courtyard.  Enter the door at the top and you will be in a
  room with another SAVE POINT.  Behind the giant sword looking blastia in here
  is a Lapis Lazuli.  Enter the Audience Room at the top of this area and you
  will encounter a Krytian advisor.  Afterwards, check the throne for a Mystic
  Mark, then the chests on either side of it for and Elder Cloak and a Spirit
  Bangle.  Examining the walls leading up to the top door reveals that you have
  to find 4 angles to open the doors.  These must be done in order!  To
  activate the angels you must hit them with your Sorcerer's Ring.

    ANGEL 1: From the Audience Room, go back out to where the SAVE POINT room
             is right before it and enter the door on the right on the second
             floor balcony.  Take the door on the north, inside is the first
             angel and two chests containing a Limit Bottle and a Breaker Bow.

    ANGEL 2: From the hallway where you first came into the castle, take the
             door leading left, this brings you into the room where you moved
             the angel statue to get to the sewers below.  The door to the left
             of this room will lead you to the second angel.  You can also go
             down in the sewers again and kill some rats, they give you
             Paralyze Powders which are good for synthing.

    ANGEL 3: Back in the room where the SAVE POINT is at (also where you found
             the first angel to the right), enter the left door and enter the
             room at the top.  Inside is the third angel as well as a Vagabond
             +1 and 15000 Gald.

    ANGEL 4: From the hallway in front of the Dining Hall, take the south exit,
             then enter the door to your right in the next room.  Go all the
             way to the right and down to the prison area, in the very last
             cell you can find a Moon Guard and a Transform Bow +1a.


Now that you have activated all four angels, go back to the Audience Room and
hit the door at the very top with your Ring to open up the hallway.  Save at
the SAVE POINT and head up the long walkway to the top.  [SPOILERS!!]  At the
top you will find Alexei still holding Estelle captive.  He raises Zaude from
the oceans and forces Estelle to attack you!


--------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Estelle
--------------------

NOTE: By far the easiest Secret Mission, simply use the item Mother's Memento
      in battle.  You will need to do this on Estelle's second form, not the
      first time you fight her.

BE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON ESTELLE ON BOTH THE FIRST AND SECOND FIGHT WITH
HER.

  Estelle's first form is incredibly easy, just have the whole party gang up on
  her all at once and she will be finished quickly as she has very low health
  for a boss character.  No real strategy, just beat the hell out of her.
  During her second form, Yuri will be alone fighting her.  A simple run and
  gun technique works well, throw an overlimit combo on her and that will
  probably eliminate most of her health.  Otherwise just attack and then free
  run away or block her advance on you.  Repeat until she's finished.  You will
  receive a Second Star, Strange Mirror, and Reflect Ring for defeating Estelle.


After the battle is done, you will have to go and locate your party members
that are scattered all over again.  Can't they just stay together for once?

  - Karol and Repede are in the Dining Hall.
  - Judith is in the courtyard area.
  - Raven is down in the last jail cell.
  - Rita and Estelle are by 4th angel (the one closest to the jail)

Once you have spoken to everyone, to the left of the bigger room that leads to
Estelle and Rita is a person you can talk to if you need to rest.  In the
morning, meet with your party by the exit in the middle sector and you will
reunite with everyone.  Estelle will earn the "Determined Princess" title.

World Map -   Right above Deidon Hold on the Halure/Aspio side of the field,
              there is a Giganto Monster available which appears like any other
              random encounter.  You'll see him out there though.


              -----------------------
              GIGANTO MONSTER: Brutal
              -----------------------

              Keep some Paralysis Bottles or equip Paralysis Wards on your
              characters before entering battle.  Brutal is also joined by a
              pack of his friends.  Don't even bother trying to fight off the
              other Rhinos in the battle area as they will never stop spawning
              no matter how many you kill.  Simply focus on Brutal and nothing
              else.  Brutal is actually very light on the attacks, most likely
              because you've got four other monsters running around trying to
              kill you too.  Similar to Brucis, attack him from the side as he
              has a lot of front and rear facing attacks.  Basically follow the
              same strategy you used for Brucis and it works just as well here,
              only the battle will be quicker as it is significantly easier to
              land hits on Brutal since he leaves himself open the entire match.
              You will get a Long Horn for defeating Brutal.  Go over to the
              Kings of Andventure camp and Rich will give you a Boomerang Horn.


              After giving defeating all of the Giganto Monsters so far (there
              are still four left out of nine), I slept at the Kings of
              Adventure camp and got another scene with Rich at night.

              If you haven't done so already, you can begin doing the Dog Map
              sidequest.  You can view your progress in your main menu by going
              to your world map and hitting Y to bring up the Dog Map overlay.
              Your marked territories are in blue and the other dog's are red.
              Mark a red or unmarked territory by sleeping in the field using a
              Mat, Tent, etc.  You can easily get to at the very least 50%
              completion by now.  You will know when you're at 50% because a
              cutscene will automatically happen.

Capua Nor -   If you've been filling your Monster Book this whole time, you
              should have gotten a skit related to having filled half of the
              book up.  Enter the town and walk in a bit and Nan will show up
              and she will have a scene with Karol.

              On the bridge leading towards the magistrate's house, you can
              find Duke for the final time standing on the bridge.

Capua Torim - Head towards where the warehouse is by the docks and you will
              meet Sicily again.  He offers to upgrade your ship and attaches
              a Salvage Crane to it.  You can now dig up treasures from the
              sea and also get past the shallow areas that you previously
              weren't able to cross.  You will notice seagulls hovering over
              certain places in the ocean now, these are the spots you can
              search, kind of like the tree stumps or skeletons you can find
              on land.

Heliord     - There is a little girl named Pauly by the main blastia in town,
              she will be kidnapped but Repede chases her down.  Exit the town
              and defeat a few monsters in battle.  Repede will learn the
              "Special" skill and will also receive the "Nanny" title.

Nordopolica - You should now be able to access the warehouse inside the
              coliseum building.  SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS
              BACKTRACKING SECTION TO SEE THE DETAILS ON HOW TO COMPLETE IT!!

              In front of the entrance to the coliseum building, you will see a
              man in all white.  Speak with him for a scene.

Mantaic     - Talk to Kowz, he requests a Poison Ward, a Paralyze Ward, and a
              Stone Ward.  In exchange, he gives you three Flare Capes.

Phaero's Cr.- Up to the top of the path and examine the phantom rift.  Speak to
              the Sage in the building at the top of the hill, speak to him
              again to rest, then speak to him again for another scene.

Mt. Temza   - Enter Mt. Temza and Raven will throw the Fire Lily you collected
              earlier down into the valley below.  The Compact of Rememberance
              will mysteriously fall from the sky.  You can also backtrack
              through this area and collect some chests now that your ring can
              blast some rocks out of the way.  I'll make an abbreviated
              version as detailed instructions require an entire seperate
              section which really isn't needed.  Simply spot the off-colored
              rocks and hit them with your Ring.

                AREA 1: x1 Golden Helm, x1 Golden Horn, x1 Holy Ring
                AREA 2: NOTHING (City ruins area)
                AREA 3: x1 Overdrive Lady
                AREA 4: x1 Chamomile, x1 Stone Charm, x1 Spirit Ring, x1 Savory

Myorzo      - Enter the Elder's house and he will give you Abyssion, one of the
              Fell Arms that he just happened to have laying around in an old
              dresser.

Baction     - You can reference the map earlier and look for the [?] rooms, or
              you can use your on-screen map and just look for the rooms that
              have a hallway connector but not a room connected to it.  Either
              way, here are the items you will be finding as well as a map of
              ONLY THE NEW AREAS:


              FLOOR 1: [1] - x1 Pineapple Gel, x1 Hotengeki
                       [2] - x1 Sage, x1 Verbena

                    [1]=[E]   This first area is the room north of where you
                     |        come down the ladder.
                    [ ]


                    [2]       This second room is north of the SAVE POINT, it
                              is in the same place as the stairs going down
                              to the second floor.


              FLOOR 2: [1] - x1 Faerie Ring (underneath the stairs), 
                       [2] - x1 Red Basil
                       [3] - x1 Amulet
                       [4] - x1 Savory, x1 Antenna Guard
                       [5] - x1 Basil, x1 Poison Charm


                   [4]=[ ]
                        |
               [1]=[ ]=[ ]     This area is accessed via the steps from the
                    |   |      map above where it is marked with an [E].
                   [2] [ ]
                        |
                   [ ]=[ ]

                    |   |
                   [ ] [3]


                       [5]     This room is on the interior of the bottom floor
                               where you have explored all around it.


Yumanju     - The hot springs can be found towards the top left corner of your
              map.  Kind of hard to describe it's exact location without
              showing you, but fly to the very top island in the northwest
              corner.  This is Nam Cobanda Island.  From here fly directly
              south until you hit that decent sized island on the left side of
              the map that has a little pool of water right in the middle of
              it.  From the top of this little island, fly directly east for
              about 2 seconds and you'll see a forest below with a kind of
              vague circle cut out around the inside of it.  This is Yumanju.
              Inside, talk to the receptionist and you will come back later.

                         AREA: Zaude (WP1)
                         -----------------

ITEMS:

35000 Gald            x1 Panacea Bottle
x1 Asura              x1 Pineapple Gel
x1 Barrier            x1 Rare Plate
x1 Death Contrast     x1 Rare Protector
x1 Dunamis            x1 Red Orb
x2 Lemon Gel          x1 Rod
x1 Life Bottle        x1 Shiden
x1 Limit Bottle       x1 Special Gel
x1 Melange Gel        x1 Splash Dress
x1 Mjolnir            x1 World Charm
x1 Moon Cloak         x1 Zaude Orb


When you gain control of your character, back up into the water and to the
right is a Barrier, pass the SAVE POINT and check the vent on the side of the
building.  Once inside, go down the steps to where the path splits in four
directions and head to the left.  You'll come up to a gated room that houses
numerous chests.  Grab everything you see: x1 Zaude Orb, x1 Life Bottle,
x1 Limit Bottle, x1 Splash Dress, x1 Special Gel, x1 Moon Cloak, x1 Panacea
Bottle, 15,000 Gald, and 20,000 Gald.  Go back to where the path split and hit
the north room and place the Zaude Orb.  Hitting this Orb with your ring will
raise the water level in the room, the pink orb where you first came in the
vent will lower it if needed.  Swim along where the path below leads left and
up onto the platform where it's crumbled.  To the left you can acquire a
Pineapple Gel, then head into the door towards the right.

  From this new room, take the path right, then exit to the right to find a
  Lemon Gel in the next room.  Backtrack into the prior room and go into the
  water.  Swim to the back of the room to find a Dunamis in a chest, then head
  back into that main room again.  To the left of the pink orb is another
  platform you can reach now, take the stairs up to the next room.  Go up the
  steps to the right and back is a Rare Protector, then on the opposite side
  is a Rare Plate.  Enter the fancy door on the bottom level and save at the
  SAVE POINT.  Prepare for your next boss fight!


-------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Yeager
-------------------

NOTE: Get ready to hate Tales of Vesperia.  This is very hard to obtain and may
      take numerous attempts.  The trick here is to Guard Break Yeager during
      is second form.  Many have suggested Destruction Field is the best way to
      go on this.  When he goes into OL, OL yourself and rush in to use your
      artes to Guard Break him.  Once he is broken, you must use Raven to use
      Rain on him.  Have him OL and spam the hell out of Rain for your best
      chance at this.  If he connects his arrow to Yeager's chest while Yeager
      is broken, you will earn the Secret Mission.  INCREDIBLY hard to pull
      this one off.  GOOD LUCK!!!

BE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON YEAGER ON BOTH HIS FIRST AND SECOND FORM.

Yeager is a pretty straightforward battle, physical attacks work great, and
spamming your artes, as always gets the health down quickly.  His attacks
aren't really devastating so you don't need any special technique to win this
battle.  Just swarm him and you will do fine.  You will receive a Splash Bow
for defeating Yeager.  Directly ahead in the next room is a Giganto Monster,
make sure to save before battling him.


-------------------------
GIGANTO MONSTER: Poseidon
-------------------------

  Poseidon has a major weakness: knockdown attacks.  Raging Blast for example
  will put him on the ground every time allowing you to get hits in without
  having to worry about getting hit back in the process.  When you see him turn
  green and charge up his X Blaster attack.  Stay in one place until he's about
  to fire it and at the last second, free run out of the way.  This way, he
  will keep his aim facing one direction and will shoot it at nothing when it
  is finally charged.  Another little quirk about him is that he will at times
  just continue following you around for long periods of time, especially if
  he's in OL.  Get him to focus on you and then lead him around the ring while
  free running and let the rest of your party get a bunch of cheap hits in
  without having him attack you at all.  You will get a Rare Metal for
  defeating Poseidon.


Right behind where Poseidon was standing are three chests.  You will need to
defeat him to accesss these!  One has a Shiden, the other a Mjolnir, and the
final one is a Rod.  At the top of the steps is a door you cannot access yet,
so take the one to the right of where Poseidon was.  Up the steps you will see
a marble pedastal you can grab and move around, push this off the side so it
lands below.  Drag the pedastal directly down to where you will see another one
kind of hiding and place it to the left of it so that they are next to
eachother.  Hit the blue orb with your ring on the second level to raise the
water, then swim over and cross the little bridge you made with the pedastals.
Before hitting the pink orb here, stand to the left of it on the broken piece
of flooring, this will drop the water level and land you on the upper ledge in
this room.  Go all the way left until you are in another room with a similar
puzzle, then down to the bottom floor.

    1. Drag the bottom/left pedastal to the right as far as it will go, then
       push it up into the water.
    2. Drag the pedastal with the blue orb on it left as far as possible, then
       down as far as possible so it's sitting in the corner of the platform it
       is on.
    3. Stand on the 1st pedastal you dropped in the water and hit the blue orb,
       this will raise you up so that you can get to the chests.

  One chest has a Red Orb, the other a Lemon Gel.  Hit the orb with your Ring
  and it will take down the door.  Exit through the right door on the upper
  level (where you came in this room) and place the Red Orb on the statue, then
  use your Ring on it to kill the door.  This now grants you access to that
  door in the room where the Giganto Monster was.  Backtrack to the previous
  room where you found the Red Orb, then downstairs and push the top/right
  pedastal down into the water.  Grab the World Charm and the Melange Gel from
  the chest, then take the door here to the right and up to the door you just
  opened in the Giganto room.  In the new room, there are two chests at the top
  left and top right of the room.  The right one has a Death Contrast, the left
  one an Asura.  Enter the door at the bottom and you will encounter some royal
  guards.  Save at the SAVE POINT, in the next room is yet another boss battle!


-------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Alexei
-------------------

NOTE: The Secret Mission for Alexei is a million times easier than the one you
      just did.  He will use his Mystic Arte attack after going into OL.
      Afterward, he will pause for a few moments to recover.  You will need to
      run in and attack him during this time.  You will do this exactly like
      you did with Schwann/Raven earlier in the game.  Hit him after the Mystic
      Arte a few times and you will complete the mission.

Follow the same technique used on Yeager and Schwann.  It's overall a pretty
easy fight as none of the attacks from Alexei are overly dangerous.  Be sure to
block when he slams his sword into the ground for an arte attack, it will hit
your party in his radius and opens you up for another attack from him.  Just
swarm him and you're fine.  You will receive a Spring of Wisdom and a Faerie
Ring for defeating Alexei.

After waking up, go downstairs from Yuri's room and meet with Estelle and
Repede.  You will earn the "Survivor" title.  After resting again, visit the
lower quarter's town circle again and you will be met by some old faces.
Judith will also join you and you'll take off on Ba'ul.  Go to Aspio's main
area and then into Rita's house, collect her and head to Dahngrest.  You will
meet with Karol in the town circle, then go to the Union HQ for another scene.
Afterwards, you will receive the Apatheia, Cyano Ciel Crystal again and Raven
will join the party.  Before heading to the next area you still have a lot of
loose ends to tie up.  Get ready for more sidequests!

 
Zaphias     - Inside the middle sector you will find Leblanc by himself on a
              bench.  Speak to him and Raven will earn the "Imperial Knights
              Captain" title.

              Go into the noble sector and you'll run into Shel for a quick
              scene.

King of Adv - Speak with Rich and he will give you a Fragment of a Sea God for
              defeating Poseidon.

Capua Torim - Enter the main area of town and you will find Gauche and Droite.
              You will catch a bit of background on the duo and also Yeager.
              Afterwards, head to Zaude and enter the doorway at the top of the
              steps which was blocked during your initial visit.  Enter the
              door at the bottom of the room and through the next hallway you
              will be where you fought Yeager.  The girls will challenge you to
              a battle.


              ------------------------------
              BOSS BATTLE: Droite and Gauche
              ------------------------------

              NOTE: Make sure you have Repede spam his Theivery arte on both of
                    them to steal the Droite Sword and Gauche Sword!  Also, be
                    sure to use a Magic Lens on both of them!

              I chose to kill Gauche first as she's much easier to defeat and
              with her out of the way you can focus all of your efforts on the
              tougher to beat Droite.  Face this like your past few fights with
              Yeager and Alexei.  Afterwards you will give them the Compact of
              Rememberance you picked up in a previous side mission and receive
              a Divine Cannon and a Letter of Challenge (L. Claw).


Heliord     - Speak with the shop owner and he requests you bring him some
              materials:

                x1 Cheagle Fur      - Niffel Lake (Night) (can't get yet!).
                x1 Spirit Fragment  - Poltergeist on the Ghost Ship.
                x2 Sacred Tree      - Treant monsters in the Halure area.
                x2 Cockatrice Claw  - The Kogorh desert area, there are a few
                                      monsters over there that drop it.

              Karol will earn the "Girly" title if you chose him earlier, but
              you will get the other one's after collecting the items required.

              Go into the workers camp part of town and down by the water, you
              will find Sicily again.  After speaking to him, go outside and
              fight some battles and come back to talk to him.  He will have a
              little robot friend named Barrelow X by him who will run away.
              Find him near the tent by the exit and bring him back to Sicily.
              He will get named Karolow X

Dahngrest   - Inside the item shop (not the one at the inn) there is a guard
              with a "..." above him.  Speak to him and Karol will hop the gate
              into the storeroom.  The guard gives you whatever is inside.  You
              can find a Stun Bracelet, a (C) F Statue, and a Poison Ward.

              Talk to Yu at the entrance, he will ask you to speak to someone
              over in Capua Torim.  Head over there and he can be found at the
              docks by the Fierta, he asks you to find some Everlight.  Go back
              to Dahngrest and towards the inn and you get a tip that the item
              might be found at Mt. Temza.  He to Temza and go all the way up
              to the peak where you fought the boss at and you'll see a small
              red piece of Everlight Ore.  Take the warp back to the start and
              head back to Capua Torim once more.  Deliver the Ore and you will
              receive 5,000 Gald.

              Speak with the cat at the entrance where Yu was standing before.
              He will ask you to take care of a troublemaking dog roaming
              around the town.  Repede makes quick work of him and the cat
              thanks you.  He says that him and his animal friends will protect
              the area for you.  I believe this means that the other dog won't
              be able to claim spots around this area for himself on the Dog
              Marking Map.

              Talk to the right bartender in the bar where you do the
              waiter/waitress game.  He will give you the Ghasfarost, Basement
              Key.  Enter Ghasfarost, use the key where the lever is on the
              left side of the room, then use your Ring to drop the steps down.
              In the basement, Rita will find the False Dein Nomos and you can
              also pick up a Limit Bottle from the chest.

              Talk to the right bartender again and he asks you to complete a
              guild job.  Accept it and head to Zaphias.  Speak to Leblanc in
              the lower sector by the fountain, then go to the tavern and speak
              with Mimula.  She asks you to find her butler, Sebastian, who is
              being kept at the Manor of the Wicked.  Head to the Manor, talk
              with the guards outside and go back to Dahngrest.  Talk to Yu on
              the bridge where you found him earlier and he gives you the
              Letter to Leviathan's Claw.  Back to the Manor and Sebastian will
              be released.  Go to Zaphias again and down towards the tavern.
              Decline Mimula's payment (it's 200 Gald and an Apple Gel if
              you're curious as to what you're giving up) and talk to Leblanc
              by the fountain again.  Finally, go back to the tavern in
              Dahngrest and speak to the bartender to receive 6,000 Gald.

              Yet again, talk to the bartender here and accept the job.  Go to
              the Union HQ and talk to Markham and Joshua inside the first
              room, they ask you to retrieve their shovel from Baction.  Go
              down the ladder, you should have explored it's location already
              but follow these directions:

                1. Go up two rooms, break the wall using your Ring and go left.
                2. Go north one room, break the wall, go right and downstairs.
                3. Go two rooms to the right, two down, then one left.
                4. Go down two rooms and the Shovel is right inside here.

              Go back to the Union HQ and speak to the two guys again, they
              will give you 5,500 Gald and you will hand over the Shovel.

Mantaic     - Talk to Kowz, he requests an All-Divide and an Hourglass.  In
              exchange you get an Apple Gel, a Lemon Gel, an Orange Gel, a
              Pineapple Gel, a Melange Gel, and a Miracle Gel.

Mt. Temza   - Fly Ba'ul over the Mt. Temza area and you will get a scene that
              explains a bit of history between Judith and Ba'ul.

Myorzo      - Go to the elder's house and check the back wall, the elder will
              tell you of a special magic and also give you a clue to check
              Aspio.  He will give you a Bush Baby Doll as well.  Before
              leaving, examine the wall again for another scene, then go to
              Aspio and talk to Toth in the main circle.  He teaches Estelle
              "Astion" in exchange for the doll you just received.

NOTE!!      - There are two other things you can do here.  Over in Capua Torim
              you can speak with the woman who runs the orphanage and she will
              ask for your help in the form of 500,000 Gald.  Also in Yumanju,
              the baths are cleaned and ready for use, however it is 50,000 PER
              PERSON (meaning 300,000 Gald total) to bathe at the moment.  At
              this point in the game, 800,000 Gald will take FOREVER to obtain
              so just hold off on these two events for the moment.  Later on it
              will be much easier to obtain a significant amount of Gald for
              these things.




                        ---------------------------
                        Zopheir & Nordopolica (ZN4)
                        ---------------------------

ITEMS:

x1 All-Divide
x1 Dark Avenger +1
x1 Death Contrast +2
x1 Hourglass
x1 Krones' Dew
x1 Lapis Lazuli
x1 Miracle Gel
x1 Moonstone
x1 Pineapple Gel
x1 Small Pipe
x1 Spirit Symbol
x1 Ultimate Red Cape


Enter Zopheir from the eastern end, the part where you exited the area the
first time you were here.  Take the path going southeast and as you're walking,
you'll see a giant ice block bobbing up and down in the water above you.  Hit
this with your Ring and it will knock a chest onto the ice above you.  Right
next to that is another one you can hit, and below that is a chest containing a
Pineapple Gel.  Collect the All-Divide from the chest you uncovered with the
second ice block, then proceed to the left.  Before going to the aer krene,
loop up and to the right to get the Spirit Symbol from that first chest you
uncovered, then right beyond that you can use your Ring to hit another ice
block.  Backtrack towards where you came in, before you hit that giant patch
of land the ice block will be floating above you, hit it and it reveals another
chest which has an Hourglass in it.  Head back towards the aer krene but don't
examine it yet!

  Proceed to the left past the krene and eventually you'll hit an area that
  leads you into a number of different directions.  There are three blocks
  right in view that you can hit, move them all then go left and south to where
  a chest is now available.  Grab the Miracle Gel, then go north and pick up
  the Lapis Lazuli.  Go back to where the aer krene is, save at the SAVE POINT,
  then examine the crystal.  You will go into a little mini game. The goal is
  to hit the corresponding button as soon as it crosses the blue forcefield.
  Hit them too early or too late and your meter won't fill up.

     A pattern will scroll across the bar letting you know which buttons
     you will need to hit.

       |    |   <--- [A]     [A]      [X]

     The first button is crossing the forcefield, hit A now!

[SPOILERS!!] After completing the game, Belius will reappear in a different
form.  She is given the name "Undine" and gives you Death Contrast +2,
Dark Avenger +1, and a Moonstone.  Rita will earn the "Spirit Hunter" title.
Before proceeding to the next part of the story, you will want to stop by a few
places to pick up a few things.

    1. Enter the noble sector of Zaphias and the Shel/Clay scene will play out.
       Afterwards, Yuri receives the "Dark Enforcer" title.

    2. Go to Halure and speak with the children by the tree to tell them a
       story.  Estelle will earn the "Fairy Tale Weaver" title.

    3. Still in Halure, sleep at the inn and go back up towards the tree.
       Estelle will learn Force Field.

    4. Go to Myorzo and speak with the child in town at the very bottom right
       who will let you play the Dragon Race game.  You will have to collect
       rings scattered around the map.  To make it easier on yourself, hit X
       when the game starts so that you have the blown up map to go off of and
       see the location of the rings.  You should also try and fly Ba'ul in a
       circular pattern as this is the most efficient way to complete the
       stages.  When the game starts, blow up your map, then pause the game and
       observe where the rings are so you can plot out the route you want to
       fly.  Completing LEVEL 5 will get Judith the "Super Dragon Rider" title.


          LEVEL   TIME TO BEAT   RINGS   PRIZE
          -----   ------------   -----   -----
            1      00:30:000      10     N/A

            5      01:30:000      10     Ultimate Red Cape


When you have finished up with these few sidequests, head over to Nordopolica
where you will see a couple of enemies attacking the city that resemble the
boss "Outbreaker" from back in the desert.  As soon as you approach the city
you will get thrown into another boss battle, however these are more like
mid-bosses as they are pretty weak and their attacks are pretty much a joke.


--------------------------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Daybreaker & Nightbreaker
--------------------------------------

  Daybreaker and Nightbreaker are very similar to Outbreaker, however now your
  levels are so high that their attacks are pretty meaningless.  Simply focus
  on upward aiming artes and this match is a breeze.  Use Tiger Blade, Shining
  Dragon Swarm, whatever will aim high on them.  Focus on one at a time, it
  doesn't really matter which one you kill first though as their powers are
  dead even.  Unfortunately, you won't get any nice items for defeating them.
  Awww...


    1. Go to Aspio, Rita will take off from the party for a short while.  Go to
       the town circle and you will see her arguing with some of the mages in
       town.  Afterwards, stay at the inn a couple times and then try heading
       down the steps from the town circle towards the exit and she will speak
       with the mages again.  Rita will learn "Meteor Storm".

    2. Speak to the Bunny Guild guy in the Union HQ at Dahngrest.  If you have
       acquired enough titles so far he will give you the Small Pipe attachment
       for Karol.  I had 60 titles at this point in the game.

    3. Sleep at the inn while still in Dahngrest for a quick scene with Raven
       out by the bridge.

    4. Go to Myorzo and talk to the Elder in town.  He will have a brief
       conversation about the Krytian's future.

    5. Fly over towards Phaero's Crag and you will see him circling the desert.
       Fly Ba'ul right by him and you will catch a scene.  [SPOILERS!!]  He is
       very hurt and gives up his life to help you and then turns into your
       second spirit.  He requests that you name his as well, Karol has his
       usual stupid suggestion but you end up naming him Efreet.


At this point you have the option of going to the Erealumen Crystallands or
Relewiese.  The Crystallands have weaker enemies so I suggest going there
first, but it is up to you.  Relewiese is located on the southeastern part of
the map where the canyons are at.  Towards the middle of that area on top of
the rocks you will see a small formation that look like an arch, this is
Relewiese.  If you choose to do Erealumen first, go to the north part of the
map above Capua Torim and Capua Nor, the previously unreachable land formation
is now above sea level.



                        ----------------------------
                        Erealumen Crystallands (US1)
                        ----------------------------

ITEMS:

25,000 Gald           x2 Pineapple Gel
x1 Basil              x1 Red Savory
x1 Dark Avenger       x1 Saffron
x2 Lemon Gel          x1 Sephira
x3 Life Bottle        x1 Spinning Drill Hammer
x1 Limit Bottle       x1 Strike Eagle
x1 Longinus           x1 Stun Talisman
x1 Melange Gel        x1 Sword Whip
x1 Orochi +1


As you come down the first path, take the one heading slightly right to pick up
a Limit Bottle, then continue on ahead.  You will come to a part that is a bit
wider than normal, off to the left you can use your Ring to break the crystals
uncovering a Sephira.  This is actually a pretty nice item as you will gain
1.5x more Gald if you have it equipped!  Continue on the path and right as it
hooks to the right you can break another crystal to find a Melange Gel.  Break
through the field of crystals to advance and you'll come to a clearing.
Collect the Stun Talisman from the chest in the back, then hit the giant
crystal with your Ring to create a bridge.  Go north first and destroy the
crystal with the monster inside.  After beating him you can pick up a Rare
Protector and a Cowboy Hat from the chests behind him.  Take the path going
south and you will run into Nan who is pretty beat up and has a short talk with
your crew.

  After the scene, save at the SAVE POINT and you now have three paths you can
  choose from. Go to the south path first, pick up the Highlander down there
  and head to the east.  Kill the monster in the crystal and pick up the Dark
  Avenger from the chest behind it.  Finally, go north and you will see the
  path split but keep heading up to break a crystal.  There is a chest monster
  here that gives you 25,000 Gald for defeating him.  Go back and take the path
  leading to the east is a chest with 2 Lemon Gels and 2 Pineapple Gels right
  in front of you.  The path will split again, one north and one south.  To the
  north, you can save at the SAVE POINT, but don't go any further.  Just before
  you hit the SAVE POINT is a crystal to the right you can break, beyond that
  you will find a Longinus and an Orochi +1.  Backtrack to the southern path
  and you will run along a very lengthy corridor until you come to a clearing
  with multiple paths.  Take the one leading down to reach a Spinning Drill
  Hammer, a Sword Whip, and a Strike Eagle.  Go north, create a bridge and
  on the other side you will find your next Giganto Monster.


-----------------------
GIGANTO MONSTER: Fenrir
-----------------------

Fenrir was probably the easiest Giganto I've encountered.  My strategy was
simple, have Estelle hang back and heal, and I ran in on him with Yuri, Judith,
and Repede and massacred him.  He got backed into a corner and it was just a
nonstop flow of physical attacks so he was unable to move and was constantly
getting knocked down allowing even more undefended damage.  He's obviously weak
to fire spells being that he's in an ice cavern, but I really didn't see a need
for it as the fight was over with in about 2 minutes flat.  You will receive a
Great Wolf Fang for beating Fenrir.


  Behind where Fenrir was at is a crystal to break, you'll find a Red Savory,
  Basil, and Saffron.  Backtrack all the way to the SAVE POINT you just hit,
  right past it are three Life Bottles.  Ahead you will find Clint and Tison
  trying to fight an Entelexsia.  Your crew will step in and your spirits so
  far will tell you what needs to be done...


-------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Gusios
-------------------

NOTE: At some point, Gusios will get up on his back legs to prepare for an
      attack, this will leave him exposed to an attack from your crew.  When he
      his like this, run in and attack him with something such as Shining Fang
      and it will knock him over.  If you catch him at the correct moment you
      will get the "Great!" message an complete the Secret Mission.

BE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON GUSIOS.

Gusios reminds me of the Fenrir battle with just a slightly higher difficulty.
The same basic tactics work on this battle, backing him into a corner and using
the knock down attacks work very well here.  Just keep two people throwing as
many physical attacks as possible at all times and you can do whatever you'd
like with the others.  Possibly just have one throwing spells and one for a
healer (though you probably won't even need that for this fight).  You will get
a Strange Stone and an Amulet for defeating Gusios.


  The Hunting Blades will take off and you will get a new spirit, Gnome.  You
  now have to backtrack all the way to the entrace of the dungeon, so get ready
  for a long walk.  Once you're outside, you can either head to Relewiese
  Hollow (unless you chose to do that location first), or just head to the next
  section of the guide.




                        ----------------------
                        Relewiese Hollow (BF0)
                        ----------------------

ITEMS:

40,000 Gald            x1 Hero Coat
x1 Alexandrite         x1 Kritya Circlet
x1 Apple Gel           x1 Life Bottle
x1 Bahamut's Tear      x2 Limit Bottle
x1 Death Slinger       x1 Melange Gel
x1 Dragon Helm         x1 Orange Gel
x1 Dragon Mail         x1 Pineapple Gel
x1 Dragon Protector    x1 Sonic Cleaver
x1 Forte Staff         x1 Star Rod


At the bottom of the first landing is a chest monster who will give you a Forte
Staff after beating him, continue on and the path will fork to the east and the
west.  To begin with, head east and as you come down the path you will find a
chest with Bahamut's Tear below you,  nothing left to do here (at the moment)
so backtrack and head west.  You'll run into a chest with a Life Bottle then as
you keep going you'll find a Dragon Protector along the path.  At this point it
will fork again, one path is right above the other.  Take the top one first and
as you come under a bridge you'll find a Hero Coat directly ahead of you.  Just
before where you found the Hero Coat, there is a short path going up where you
will pick up a Kritya Circlet.  Backtrack to where the paths split earlier and
now go to the one leading below.  This will also instantly split, go up first
as opposed to heading down the canyon and you'll pick up a Death Slinger.  Go
back and follow the one leading down and you'll run right into a chest with a
Pineapple Gel.  Eventually you will hit a part where the path splits directly
right or left.

  Take the right path and follow it ALLLL the way until you reach a chest with
  Alexandrite.  You cannot do anything else in this area for the moment so head
  ALLLL the way back and take the path to the left.  [SPOILERS!!]  Duke shows
  up again and will remain mysterious as ever.  But he says he won't interfere
  with you as long as you don't interfere with him.  Save at the SAVE POINT,
  grab the Sonic Cleaver from the chest right above it.  You cannot do anything
  with the left path yest, so go right where it leads you under a bridge
  identical to the one you did before.  Up the little path is a chest monster
  who gives you Dragon Mail, past that ahead is a Star Rod, then below that
  where the path splits AGAIN are two Limit Bottles.  The left path is short
  and gets you a Dragon Helm, then go east and pick up the Melange Gel, Apple
  Gel, Orange Gel from the chest.  Continue down until you reach the SAVE POINT
  by the water and then enter the cavern.  [SPOILERS!!]  Inside you find the
  oldest spring in the world and the Kritya named Khroma shows up.  Before she
  turns herself into a spirit, she will test your strength, prepare to fight!


--------------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Khroma Dragon
--------------------------

NOTE: For the Secret Mission, you will need to watch for Khroma to float up in
      the air and slam down to the ground (not to be confused with her fire
      attack from the air).  As soon as she hits the ground you've got a couple
      seconds to run over and get an attack in to knock her over.  Your
      computer controlled characters can accomplish this for you but I was able
      to randomly get an attack in there to complete it myself.

BE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON KHROMA DRAGON.

Khroma has some nasty radius attacks that severly damage your party all at
once.  Equip a Stun Charm or any other item that prevents you being stunned on
your characters as she has numerous attacks that stun you, this will greatly
help you out through this battle.  Make sure to block when you see her cyclone
attack coming as it is incredibly powerful and chances are it will suck up
most of your party.  BLOCK A LOT DURING THIS BATTLE, otherwise you will be
spending more time healing that you will attacking.  Keep an eye on everyone's
health as many times they are too busy to heal everyone so you may need to
cover for them.  You will receive a Rainbow Lens and a Hunter's Monocle for
defeating Khroma Dragon.


  After the battle go up further into the cavern and on the farthest part by
  the water there is a semi-hidden chest with 40,000 Gald inside.  Backtrack to
  the SAVE POINT up the canyon a bit and you will name Khroma "Sylph" and have
  the option to have Ba'ul take you out.  Choose yes if you want a quick way
  out, otherwise you can hike up by yourself to the entrance.  If you
  accidentally hit "no", just go into Khroma's cavern and exit back out and you
  will see a warp by the SAVE POINT at the bottom.



                         --------------------
                         Backtracking 7 (AA5)
                         --------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Blue Dice              x1 Mysterious Piece
x1 Blue Talisman          x1 Paralysis Charm
x1 Chamomile              x1 Rebirth Ring
x1 Chimera Scale          x1 Red Chamomile
x1 Elemental Goggles      x2 Red Lavender
x1 Glasya Labolas         x1 Red Sage
x1 Griffin Feather        x1 Red Savory
x1 Mercurius              x1 Red Verbena
x1 Nebilium               x1 Saffron
x1 Overdrive Kid          x1 Sage
x1 Overdrive Old Man      x1 Savory
x1 Overdrive Princess     x1 Silve Mane
x1 Lavender               x1 Sorcerer's Ring Lv. 4
x1 Lemon Gel              x1 Zarich


Once you obtain the Sorcerer's Ring Lv. 4 in this section, you will then be
able to collect some more of the Fell Arms weapons.  You have a bunch of other
side areas to take care of before heading to the next part of the story.

Aer Krene   - South of Nordopolica you will see an island with a pile of rocks
              on a small island.  Go inside and your Abyssion sword will react
              and destroy the boulder blocking your path.  You will pick up a
              the Fell Arm weapon for Judith called Zarich.  Inside, follow
              the path to the left to get Sorcerer's Ring Lv. 4.

Quoi Woods  - Enter from the Halure side of the map and as the path turns you
              will see some bushes that you can hit with your new Ring and
              clear a path.  This will open you up to a clearing where there
              is a chest containing a Rebirth Ring on the bottom right, an
              Overdrive Kid at the back behind the Giganto Monster, and a
              Glasya Labolas on the other side of the tree by the Giganto.
              The Glasya Labolas is one of the Fell Arms.


              ----------------------------------
              GIGANTO MONSTER: Chimera Butterfly
              ----------------------------------

              The nice thing about fighting Chimera Butterfly at this point in
              the game is that you've already tackled much tougher enemies
              earlier, so defeating it should be a walk in the park.  It's
              attacks are easy to defend, it's very easy to use knock down
              attacks against, and in the rare instances that it is able to
              fly, his ice attack is pretty weak and can easily be guarded
              against.  Keep him surrounded and he won't be able to move, he
              should go down just as quickly as the one back in the
              Crystallands.  You will get Dragon Powder for defeating Chimera
              Butterfly.

Field Map   - Head to Yumanju, east of it there is a clearing before you hit
              some mountains.  Keep wandering around in the field out here and
              eventually Griffin will pop up like the Giganto you found outside
              of Deidon Hold.

              ------------------------
              GIGANTO MONSTER: Griffin
              ------------------------

              Griffin is a bit tougher than the past couple Giganto Monsters
              you encountered.  I suggest equipping something to protect you
              against being stunned and also something that gives resistance to
              Wind attacks.  He's got three big attacks that wear your party
              out.  One is a cyclone attack that will catch all party members
              in the area and deal them a chunk of damage, the others are
              physical attacks where he pecks at you with his beak or spins and
              smashes you with his tail.  You will be able to see these coming
              so when you see him preparing, BLOCK immediately!  You will get a
              Yurzo Crystal for defeating Griffin.  You will also get the "Big
              Game Hunter" achievement for clearing out all of the Gigantos.

King of Adv - Visit Rich at the King of Adventures camp above Halure to
              collect a Silve Mane for defeating Fenrir back in the
              Crystallands.  You will also receive a Chimera Scale for
              defeating the Chimera Butterfly in Quoi Woods.  After all of the
              monsters are defeated, Karol will get the "Valiant Swordsman"
              title/costume.  You will receive a Griffin Feather for defeating
              Griffin over by Yumanju.

Capua Torim - After defeating all of the Giganto Monsters and having the scene
              regarding marriage at the King of Adventures camp, head into
              Capua Torim and talk to Rich's father who can be found near the
              item shop.  Report back to the KoA camp and speak to Rich and
              tell him about the news.

Keiv Moc    - Now that you have the Ring you can set fire to some bushes in the
              forest.  There are a few places to visit here, just look for the
              brown-ish colored bushes and you'll be able to clear them out.
              There is one you can burn just as you come in and there is also
              one at the very back part of the forest by the aer krene.  The
              others are scattered about.  If you are having trouble finding
              the Overdrive Old Man, just go directly east of the SAVE POINT,
              there is a branch to climb up.The following are the items you can
              find here (the Nebilium is one of the Fell Arms):

              AREA 1: x1 Blue Talisman
                      x1 Sage
                      x1 Savory
              AREA 2: x1 Saffron

                      x1 Overdrive Old Man
                      x1 Mysterious Piece

Relewiese   - Since Relewiese is basically one big area, I'll label the first
              area as everything BEFORE the save point around the middle of the
              canyon, and the second area is everything you can find after
              that.  The Mercurius weapon is one of the Fell Arms.

              AREA 1: x1 Overdrive Princess
                      x1 Red Sage
                      x1 Red Chamomile

              AREA 2: x1 Mercurius
                      x2 Red Lavender
                      x1 Red Verbena

Aspio       - Complete at least half of the Collector's Book and enter the
              Library in Aspio via the entrance you broke into when you first
              came to Aspio.  You will meet Giovanni who requests to borrow
              your Book for a short while.  MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS NOW AND NOT
              LATER!!

RECIPE: Vichyssoise


When you are done with all of the side items, go to Capua Nor and the girls
will run off shopping.  Sleep at the inn [SPOILERS!!] and you will see Tarqaron
rising and destroying Aspio beneath it.  A man approaches who will let Flynn
know where you are at.  Enter the left door of the inn and wait for Witcher and
Sodia who will request your help.  Try to exit the town and Sodia will stop for
a moment.  After you leave, you will have some more sidequest things to do.


Heliord     - Earlier on in the game you were able to talk to the shopkeeper
              here who asked you to bring some items.  All of them, except for
              Cheagle Fur, were attainable at that time.  In case you need a
              refresh, here are the items you were looking for:

              NOTE: The item list is for EACH outfit the shopkeeper makes.  You
                    will need a set of the following items for Estelles dress,
                    and a set for Judith's Dress so make sure you get double of
                    the items listed below.

                x1 Cheagle Fur      - Niffel Lake (Night).
                x1 Spirit Fragment  - Poltergeist on the Ghost Ship.
                x2 Sacred Tree      - Treant monsters in the Halure area.
                x2 Cockatrice Claw  - The Kogorh desert area, there are a few
                                      monsters over there that drop it. 

              Niffel Lake is now accessible.  On your map, find Mt. Temza and
              look at the continent directly north of it, you will see a lake
              right above where Mt. Temza is at, this is your destination.  You
              will need to go at night and fight an enemy called Gentlemieu.
              They're tall, lanky, blue enemies.  The drop rate for Cheagle Fur
              is very low so you may have to fight a bunch of them to get it.
              Once you've rounded up the items, return them to the Heliord
              shop.  

                - Estelle will earn the "Enchanting Bell" title/costume.
                - Judith will earn the "Sultry Tempest" title/costume.

Yumanju     - Talk the man inside standing in the upper left part of the room
              by the chairs and he asks you to collect the 11 "Luxury Toys
              Series" items for him.  He gives you a Tiara as a reward in
              advance.  You will now need to collect the rest, here are their
              locations:

                STATUE 01: Yumanju, upper left 500 Gald toy machine.
                           (C) H Statue
                STATUE 02: Yumanju, upper left 500 Gald toy machine.
                           (C) B Statue
                STATUE 03: Yumanju, upper left 500 Gald toy machine.
                           (C) J Statue
                STATUE 04: Nam Cobanda, 10 Chip toy machine in the gym.
                           (C) S Statue
                STATUE 05: Nam Cobanda, 50 Chip toy machine in the gym.
                           (C) I Statue
                STATUE 06: Nam Cobanda, 50 Chip toy machine in the gym.
                           (C) N Statue
                STATUE 07: Nam Cobanda, 100 Chip toy machine in the gym.
                           (C) R Statue
                STATUE 08: Nam Cobanda, 100 Chip toy machine in the gym.
                           (C) P Statue
                STATUE 09: Nam Cobanda, 500 Chip toy machine in the gym.
                           (C) M Statue
                STATUE 10: Zaphias, speak to Hanks by the fountain.
                           (C) L Statue
                STATUE 11: Dahngrest, guard inside the item shop.
                           (C) F Statue

              You should have had the (C) F Statue from Dahngrest earlier in
              the game already, but once you're done collecting the rest you
              can go back to the hot springs and speak with the man inside
              again.  Yuri will earn the "Recollection Guardian" title.

Nam Cobana  - At the very top left corner of the map you will find Nam Cobana
              Isle.  This place was previously underwater and inaccessible but
              you can now go and have some fun here.  At the gate, pay for
              entry and you receive the Nam Cobanda Isle, Entry Ticket.  Enter
              the gymnasium and talk to the kid in the cow suit at the table
              who will give you 5 Chips on the house.  Speak to the guy at the
              poker table and play a match.  Exit the gym and enter again.
              Kaufman asks you to help get rid of a pro gambler.  You will have
              to try and win more than the pro gambler, but it really doesn't
              matter, you can lose all of your chips and still have the same
              outcome.  Kaufman gives you 15,000 Gald as a reward and Judith
              gets the "Legendary Gambler" title/costume.

              Earning over 100,000 Chips in Poker will get you the "Jackpot"
              achievement.

             ------------------------------------------------------------------
            | POKER TIPS!! Max bet you can put down is 500 Chips.  I bought a
            | hundred chips with my Gald to start out with, and just made 10
            | Chip bets.  As soon as I reached 1,000 Chips, I started betting
            | 100 Chips.  As soon as I hit 10,000 Chips, I began putting down
            | the max 500 Chip bet.  It didn't take very long to get to 10,000,
            | and after that point I was winning huge so you can rack up a ton
            | of chips in no time.
            |
            | POKER TIPS!! I'm not going to go into the finer points of playing
            | poker here, feel free to read the in-game tutorial for general
            | strategies.  At the end of a match, if you hit something higher
            | than one pair you have the option to double your bet.  This is
            | completely random and up to you if you want to do it, but playing
            | it correctly can pay off big.  When you choose "Yes" on the double
            | your winnings option you will be dealt a single card.
            |
            | [A]  <---  You were dealt an Ace, choose if you think the next
            |            card will be higher or lower than an Ace.  The obvious
            |            choice is LOW because only a Joker beats an Ace and
            |            the odds are you will pull something lower.
            |
            | [A] [K] <- You drew a King, you win!  Now you can choose to try
            |            and double that money you just got.  Odds are you can
            |            pull something lower than a King, go for it if you'd
            |            like, or just take the money and run.
            |
            | [K] [2] <- You drew a Two, win again!  You've got a pretty
            |            large amount of money going now.  A Two is a safe bet
            |            that the next card will be higher, double up!
            |
            | [2] [9] <- Nine, another win!  However, being that it's a Nine,
            |            there's not great odds that you'll pull a higher or
            |            lower, so you can get out with your money or press
            |            your luck.  I will say that my method is to bet HIGH
            |            on cards [2] through [9], and bet LOW on cards [10]
            |            through [JOKER].  Obviously, since this is a game of
            |            chance, this isn't a 100% method but it works for me.
            |
            | The doubling up bonus amounts are by far the quickest way to
            | raise your overall amount, you can pull 1,000,000+ chips in a
            | single round which takes all of a minute to complete.  (After a
            | certain point it doesn't allow you to double any more.)
             ------------------------------------------------------------------


              Now that you hopefully have a ton of chips to work with, go over
              to the prize exchange table and start earning Gald for your
              gambling skills.  Buy up everything on the first page to the max
              of 15 (Miracle Gel, Special Gel, Specific, Treat, Barrier and
              also the Limit Bottles on the second page).  Take these items
              over to Yumanju since it's right there and sell all of them at
              the store.  This will get you around 180,000 Gald per trip.  If
              you were like me and ended up with 10,000,000+ chips, you can
              also buy up some of the more expensive items and expedite the
              process.  The Holy Avenger +1, for example, will sell at 21,000
              Gald each netting you a total of just over 500,000 Gald per trip.
              Be warned that buying Holy Avengers isn't nearly as cost
              effective as the others, but I had plenty of chips and didn't
              want to make a hundred trips back and forth just to get the
              achievement here.  Your ultimate goal is to make 10,000,000+ Gald
              to earn the "Piggybank" achievement.  It's a pain to do it like
              this but you'll need the Gald anyway for some other side things
              we need to clean up that we started earlier in the game.

              Once you've played enough poker, exchange at least 250,000 Chips
              at the prize exchange table and Judith will earn the "Poker Face"
              title.  If you were doing the Gald exchange I mentioned right
              above, this should have been attained at some point in buying up
              a lot of items.  Afterwards, go over to the shoe locker across
              from the gym and talk to Kaufman in the back.  You can check some
              of the shelves for a Magic Lens and an All-Divide in here.

              Behind the chips and prize exchange tables in the gym you can
              find Wonder Chef!  He will teach you the Vichyssoise recipe as a
              reward for finding him.

        NOTE: Cook Vichyssoise with Estelle to learn Pork Miso Soup.  After
              that, have Yuri cook Pork Miso Soup until you get the Udon
              Noodles Hot Pot recipe.

              There is a semi-circle of tables inside the gym, talk to the guy
              in the cow suit in the middle, who turns out to be a renowned
              researcher, and he will give you the Exam Application.  It asks
              you to collect books from a number of locations.  YOU CANNOT
              COMPLETE THIS YET, but you CAN pick up most of the books.

                1. Halure, inside the Mayor's house by the table.
                   "The Villiage Carpeted with Flowers"
                2. Capua Torim, Fortune's Market HQ, back/right bookshelf.
                   "Reflections on the Scent of the Sea"
                3. Heliord, Chevalier's HQ, inside the holding room.
                   "Urban Planning for Bustling Cities"
                4. Mantaic, at the inn on the shelf by the beds.
                   "The Legend that Sleeps in Searing Sands"

              Talk to the guy by the entrance of Nam Cobanda outside AFTER you
              have done the statue collecting quest from Yumanju above.  He
              will mention that you need to open up a lot of chests in the
              world to help him with his game.  At this point I wasn't able to
              meet his goal of opening enough chests, so we will come back to
              him later as well.

              Speak to the guy in the cow suit inside near the left side of
              where the capsule machines are at to play a game called Tales of
              Draspi.  You can get Raven's "Hardcore Gamer" title by playing
              this game over and over again.  Simply pay the 10 Chips to play,
              die quickly, then exit out and pay 10 Chips again.  Lather,
              rinse, repeat.  Play it enough times and you will get a scene,
              the title, and an Ultimate Blue Cape.

Yumanju     - After getting the "Piggybank" achievement and being rich beyond
              your wildest dreams, you can now do a little spending.  Go to the
              hot springs and talk to the receptionist.  You'll pay her 300,000
              Gald on this trip to use the baths.  Exit, then sleep at an inn
              and return and you will have to pay 600,000 Gald for your visit.
              You cannot do any more here at the moment.

Capua Torim - Next stop on the spending spree is the lady who runs the
              orphanage at the harbor.  Try to leave the area and Drake will
              speak with Estelle and she earns the "Noble Princess" title.

STORY       - When you left Zaphias earlier after picking up the statue for the
              sidequest, you should have been shown a scene on Ba'ul about
              wanting to go back to the town.  Go into Zaphias and to the area
              where the lower and middle quarter path is.  Head up to the
              castle and a blastia scene will automatically trigger.
              Afterwards, exit the city and call Ba'ul.

STORY       - Fly south of Zaphias to the next continent and you will see a big
              cloud of dust being kicked up over a small area.  Fly over it and
              you will have a scene on Ba'ul where you receive Vesperia No. 1.
              [SPOILERS!!] Below you'll find Flynn and he will join you in
              battle, fight through the sea of average enemies and you will
              make it to the center of the action and deploy your weapon.
              Afterwards, you will need to go to Dahngrest and Nordopolica to
              speak with some people.  Save at the SAVE POINT and head out.

STORY       - Head to Dahngrest and as you approach the intersection towards
              the HQ, Dyne will show up.  He asks you to complete a guild job
              in Mantaic, accept it then enter the Union HQ.  You will have a
              quick scene inside the Don's Chamber and from there you can head
              out.  Before going to Nordopolica though, start doing a couple
              more quests.

Mantaic     - You will find Dyne at the first intersection in town, he is
              apparently suffering from food poisoning so you will need to
              fight the enemy he mentioned to you earlier on your own.  Go to
              Mt. Temza and you will encounter Pterobronc again in the second
              area.  Kill it and you receive a Pterobronc Claw.  Go back to
              Mantaic and talk to Dyne outside by the shop and he gives you
              8,000 Gald. (Whoopie!  Drop in the bucket considering you just
              made 10,000,000 Gald in the previous section.)

Nam Cobanda - Enter the gym and go to where the stage is at, you can now talk
              to one of the acting guild members here who needs your help.
              After the play you will receive a Shield of Valor and a Hero's
              Sword as well as a couple of titles:

                - Yuri will earn the "Improvisionist" title/costume.
                - Estelle will earn the "Heroic Actress" title/costume.
                - Karol will earn the "Brilliant Support Role" title/costume.
                - Rita will earn the "Spotlight Hog" title/costume.

Dahngrest   - At this point you should have enough titles to get another
              costume attachment from the Bunny Guild member inside the HQ.
              Speak with him to receive the Cute Bunny Ears for Judith.

STORY       - Enter Nordopolica and Natz will meet with you outside.  After a
              short talk with him you can head back to the camp where you
              fought alongside Flynn earlier.

NOTE        - If you haven't done so already, be sure to learn the "Special"
              skill for Yuri, this is needed to complete a Secret Mission
              coming up shortly!  Equip the "Special" skill and set an Altered
              Arte to a shortcut button.  You will also want to synth a Limit
              Treo at the very least but you should have a Limit Quartet by
              this point in the game.



                         -------------------
                         TOWN: Aurnion (NG3)
                         -------------------

ITEMS:

x1 Against a Backdrop of New Hope
x3 Limit Bottle
x1 Specific
x1 Treat

RECIPE: Crepe


The town has really taken shape since your last visit, instead of a makeshift
camp it is now a full fledged town!  To the far right of the town past where
the shop is you will see a scarecrow-esque thing bobbing back and forth.
Surprise!  It's Wonder Chef again, he will teach you the recipe for Crepes.
Check the tables inside the inn for a Treat and a Specific.  Save at the SAVE
POINT and talk to Flynn in the middle of town, then again at the south
entrance.  [SPOILERS!!] Yuri and Flynn will talk outside away from everyone,
he will challenge you in a fight!


------------------
BOSS BATTLE: Flynn
------------------

NOTE: Flynn will need to use all twelve of his Artes in this fight, including
      his Mystic Arte, to attain the Secret Mission.  To get Flynn to use his
      Mystic Arte you will first need to have Yuri perform his.  If you've
      never done one before, now is the time to learn.  As stated at the end
      of the last section, you should have at least synthed a Limit Treo or
      Limit Quartet giving you 3-4 Over Limit Bars.  Have the "Special" skill
      equipped on Yuri and set an Altered Arte to a shortcut button.  Go into
      Over Limit, then hold the A button to use your Altered Arte, then hold
      the B button while the Altered Arte is being performed to kick in your
      Mystic Arte.  Flynn will use all of his Arte's at some point, keep
      attacking him and he will use the First Aid and Guardian Field spells to
      heal himself.  After all 12 have been used you will get the "Great!"
      message and complete the mission.  The following are Flynn's Artes:

        - Beast             - Guardian Field
        - Demon Fang        - Holy Lance
        - Demonic Chaos     - Radiant Dragon Fang (MA)
        - Demonic Circle    - Sonic Thrust
        - Dragon Swarm      - Sword Rain: Alpha
        - First Aid         - Tiger Blade

BE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON FLYNN.

  Fighting Flynn is very easy and is basically a game of cat and mouse.  You
  can free run away from his attacks and circle back in and hit him while he's
  vulnerable.  His healing Artes take a while to cast so they are very easily
  stopped with a quick hit from Yuri.  His attacks are pretty weak at this
  point too, and a few Over Limit combos will knock off a massive amount of
  health from him.  Just time your attacks and dodge/block everything he throws
  and you will have no problem.  You will receive a Paladin Cape, Alexandrite,
  and an Order of the Imperial Honor for defeating Flynn.


After the fight, enter the Aurnion HQ building and check the dresser on the
left side of the room for the book "Against a Backdrop of New Hope".  This is
the final book you were trying to find for the sidequest in Nam Cobanda.  You
can also check the table between the beds in here for 3 Limit Bottles.  Stay at
the inn and overnight you will have scenes with all of your different party
members.  In the morning you will have another quick scene and you'll end up
back on the world map.

NOTE: Have Rita cook Crepe until you learn the Fruit Parfait recipe.

Aurnion     - Enter Aurnion again and you will receive a Letter of Challenge
              (Flynn).  Head towards the left side of town and Flynn will play
              with Repede for a bit and Repede will earn the "Tough Hound"
              title.

              Sleep at the inn for a scene with Rita and Judith at night.  Stay
              again for a scene with the spirits and finally, enter the inn and
              speak with the doctor.  After the scene here you can enter the
              inn yet again and speak with the doctor a second time.  After
              this, sleep at the inn for another scene with Judith and Rita.
              When you've done all of this, speak with the villager standing
              near the inn/hospital and you will soon gain an audience of
              people thanking you for your help.  MORE ON THIS PART IN THE NEXT
              UPDATE!!

              Talk to Flynn and he will practice fighting all night with Yuri.
              Yuri will gain the "Final Gale" Arcane Arte.

              Sleep at the inn and Judith has a meeting with Kaufman regarding
              finding the spear she lost a long while back.

              Make Rita your party leader so that she is the on screen
              character and examine the blastia.  You may have to exit and
              enter the town to do this or sleep at the inn first before you
              are able to check out the main blastia in town.  After the first
              time you should be able to check it again where she names the
              barrier blastia "Maria".

              Enter the town and head towards the HQ where Drake is waiting.
              He will plead with Yuri to join the Knights again and Yuri gains
              the "Certified Soldier" title/costume.

              Re-enter the town and go to the little cluster of houses located
              north-northeast of the main blastia to find Drake.  You will get
              the "Worldly Adventurer" title for Estelle.

              Make Raven the on screen character and enter the town, you can
              find Drake here again, he will be next to th emain blastia.  He
              will teach Raven the "Vanji Lost" arte.

              Master at least 100 Skills with Raven and enter the town.
              Leblanc will praise you for your achievements.  Raven will earn
              the "Shining Star" title/costume.

              Outside of the HQ, there is a guard named Agueron that you can
              chat with.  He asks you to gather some building materials for the
              town.  You may start this now, but you won't be able to complete
              it unless you visit your next area, Tarqaron, and watch the
              opening cutscene for that area.  You can go ahead and do this and
              simply kill the enemies inside that drop the needed items, then
              back out to the world map and continue with this.  I will assume
              you'd like to do that so here is the list and where to pick
              everything up at:

                - x3 Desier Gold Dust - Wirbels (the wolf looking enemies)
                     outside of Nordopolica and Weasand of Cados will drop
                     these.

                - x3 Hypionian Tree Bark - Square Shoulders, Erdas, and a
                     number of other enemies in the Hyponia area will drop
                     these.  Aurnion is located right around the Hyponian area
                     so you won't have to travel much for this one.

                - x3 Yurzo Fruit - At night an enemy named Bloom roams around
                     that drop these, as well as many other enemies in the
                     Yumanju area.  Blooms also drop an item needed for the
                     second part of this quest.

              Next up you will need to collect:

                - x3 Might Orb - At Mt. Temza you can find the enemy called
                     Warrior that drops these, they can also be stolen from
                     them.

                - x3 Treant Flower - The Bloom enemies in the Yumanju area at
                     night that I mentioned above will drop these.

                - x3 Crystal - Erealumen Crystallands monsters drop these
                     frequently.  Fight a few in that area and you will pick
                     them up quickly.

                - x3 Mystic Orb - In Caer Bocram there is an enemy called Fancy
                     Parasol that looks like an umbrella, they drop these
                     frequently.

                - x3 Great Leo Fang - Inside Tarqaron/Labyrinth of Memories.
                     The Schwert enemies drop them, they look like lions with
                     giant fangs.

              Finally, you will need to collect:

                - x1 Greenlight Stone - Gaina Fireflys will drop these.  They
                     can be found outside of the Weasand of Cados area on the
                     Nordopolica side at night.

                - x1 Pitch-black Ink - Aquicia rarely drop these.  There is a
                     small island of sand between Aurnion and Egothor Forest,
                     at night you can find the Aquicias, they are giant squid
                     creatures, not the tiny red ones.

                - x1 Rare Metal - The Poseidon enemies inside of Zaude drops
                     these.  You can also obtain these from search points on
                     the world map sometimes.

                - x500,000 Gald - You should have plenty of money from playing
                     poker at Nam Cobanda, if not, scroll up to the
                     "Backtracking 7.5" section for tips on this.

              Once you have provided the knight with all of the materials,
              sleep at the inn 5 or 6 times and exit Aurnion.  Enter the town
              again and you should get a scene with a completely built area.
              You will be rewarded with a King's Cape.

              After Aurnion has been built using the above method, you can
              search the town for some items.  To the left of the HQ there is a
              small tent you, check for 3 Syrup Bottles and 3 Nectar Bottles.

              After Aurnion has been built, you can now access the Aurnion
              warehouse minigame.  FOR DETAILS ON THIS, SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF
              THIS BACKTRACKING SECTION!!  Karol will earn the "Warehouse
              Master" title for completing all of the warehouses.

Caer Bocram - Enter the building on the right hand side on the bottom level
              where you will find some theives with Judith's spear.  Chase
              them away and you will (finally) gain Judith's Brionac spear.

Kings of Ad.- Enter the Kings of Adventure camp and sleep at there twice, both
              nights you will get a scene.  On the first night, Repede will
              learn the "Shining Fang" Base Arte.  On the second night he will
              receive the Order of the Loyal Hound and the "Ultimate Dog
              Warrior" title.

Zaphias     - Enter the middle sector for a scene with Lune on the bench with
              some children.

Capua Torim - As soon as you enter, you will encounter Nan and her crew, she
              will teach Karol the "Rending Drop" Arcane Arte.  Once you've
              done this, head to Dahngrest's middle area of town for a yelling
              contest.  You will receive an Infinity for your participation.

Heliord     - Go into the worker's camp and down by the water to find Sicily
              again.  He will make Repede the Murakumo weapon after seeing him
              in action.

Halure      - Enter Halure and a scene will automatically trigger with the
              party talking under the tree.

              Check your "Records" under the Library option in your main menu
              and scroll to the one that says Total Damage Given.  You will
              need to have over 60,000,000 in damage given in order to get
              this.  Talk to the mage standing where the path splits going to a
              small fountain and the giant tree and she will give Rita the
              "Seeker" title/costume.

              Talk with Sicily (after the Heliord scene) and he asks you to
              complete seven requirements, each time you complete one you will
              get a weapon!

                1. Yuri - "Repeat an attack a motivational amount of times"
                   ** Perform a 200+ hit combo to receive a Shinai.  (See below
                   the 7th item on this list for an easy method to get this.)
 
                2. Repede - "Finish a battle in a motivational amount of time"
                   Finish a battle in less than 3 seconds to receive Grilled
                   Chicken.

                3. Estelle - "Receive a motivational battle evaluation"
                   Receive a Cat Teaser.

                4. Karol - "Run away from battle motivationally"
                   Run from at least 50 battles to receive a 756kg Hammer.

                5. Rita - "Deal a motivational amount of damage to an enemy"
                   Receive a Measuring Tape.

                6. Raven - "Get a motivational amount of money"
                   Have at least 1,000,000 Gald on you to receive a Slingshot.

                7. Judith - "Fight in a motivational number of battles"
                   Fight in at least 1,000 battles to receive a Deck Brush.

                ** An easy way to get a 200+ hit combo is the infamous "Tidal
                   Wave" spam by Rita.  Follow these steps:

                   1. Equip Rita with an item that reduces or refills your TP,
                      preferrably Risky Ring as it will reduce your spell costs
                      to only 1 TP!
                   2. Set the "Minimum Damage" skill on your party members.
                   3. Set Rita up with a couple of helpful skills like O.L.
                      Boost, Spell End, etc.
                   4. Enter battle and have your crew defend.  Use a 1 bar OL
                      with Rita.
                   5. Constantly cast Tidal wave and your combo will grow very
                      quickly.  With all of the combos being hit, your OL bar
                      will refill itself allowing you to use it again.
                   6. Time it so that when your OL is about to be over, go into
                      another OL and continue with the Tidal Waves.  Minimum
                      damage brings it down to 1 HP of damage at a time so you
                      will be able to recast your spell a ton of times without
                      needing to worry about the enemy dying.
                   7. Go until you've hit the 200+ mark and you're all set!  As
                      a side bonus for this, Yuri will gain the title "King of
                      Combos" for getting a 200+ hit combo.

Keiv Moc    - Enter the forest and you will find the Hunting Blades wiped out
              by a giant monster.  Karol helps out and earns the "Golden
              Soldier" title/costume and also picks up the Letter of Challenge
              (H. Blades).  You should now have 3/4 of these letters.  This
              will get you into the 100 Man Melee back in Nordopolica.

Nordopolica - Learn all of the recipes possible in the game and go towards the
              docks in town and talk to Wonder Chef.  He will give you the
              Cooking Match Invitation and also teaches you the Mabo Curry
              Recipe!  MASTER every recipe with a single character and then
              head to Dahngrest for the competition.  See the Dahngrest part of
              this section below for more information.

              The 100 man melee is now open for business!  With your letters of
              invitations, you can now access this fight.  MORE INFO COMING ON

Mantaic     - Talk to the kid in the cow suit behind the inn again and he will
              ask you for one last item: Silver Edge +1a.  You can synth this

              a Magic Lens, Krona's Symbol, Blue Dice, 2 Rebirth Dolls, Holy

STEP 1: BOTTOM LEFT/TOP LEFT

This first map details how to organize the bottom and top left side of the
room, to avoid a lage confusing map I'm breaking it into two parts.  Place all
of the boxes (1A-6F) in their marked locations.  You will have access to your
first chest in the top left corner of the room which contains 3 Special Gels.
Once completed, the second part will start from the initial entrance of the
warehouse.

Moving (1A-3C) into their proper spots will get you the next chest on the right
side of the room, it contains a Mysterious Piece.  At the top you will see a
cluster of three boxes ([4],[5] and [6]).  Move [6] down two or three spots,
then push [5] up one to allow you to drop [4] into place.  After that, continue
on as normal and you will get to your final chest which has a Spring of Wisdom.
This will finish the Aurnion Warehouse!

After watching a quick scene with the group you can take control and start
wandering around.  In the first room you're in, to the far right is a chest
with 3 Dark Bottles and on the left side there are 3 Holy Bottles.  Enter the
door at the top of the room and you will be in the Labyrinth of Memories.  The
path will split in numerous directions like this diagram:


                               [J]      [BOSS]
                               /           |

                             |
                          [ENTER]


Listed below you will find the steps you'll need to take to cover everything in
this place.  The first few locations won't advance the story but there are
items to collect here and you can backtrack to the center and go through the
routes.


PATH [B]: Go up the steps into the next screen, you will see a chest to the
          right that has 5 Magic Lenses.  Go down the little set of steps and
          to the left, you will see some holding tanks and there is a Terra
          Crest towards the back of them.

PATH [F]: As you come across the bridge from [D], go all the way right and down
          the steps to find a Limit Bottle, then go up the steps and you will
          find a Sacred Chain on the next platform.  Head up the steps into the
          upper level/next screen.  Take the path heading left to pick up a
          Crusader 13, then go to the path leading right/down.  At the bottom
          of the steps you can find a Treat.  From here the path forks in three
          directions.  Go up/left to grab the Ninja Dog Mask, then the left way
          for three Life Bottles.  Going to the final door takes you to [1].

PATH [1]: Right inside the door is an Ancient Ribbon.  Keep heading down the
          stairs until you reach the bottom.  Before entering the door, get the
          Life Bottle in the chest to the left of it.  Enter the door and you
          will end up in [G].

PATH [G]: On your right hand side as you enter is a Specific and all the way to
          the left is a Magical Ribbon.

PATH [D]: Path [D] is found at the top of the steps, going across the invisible
          bridge thing will lead you to [F].  Once you've reached the top level
          on the next screen, take the walkway heading left to find a Gungnir
          in the chest.  Take the one towards the right to find a Miracle Gel,
          and finally at the bottom of both sets of steps you can find a Limit
          Bottle.   South of where the Limit Bottle is you can exit this area
          into room [2].

PATH [2]: Up numerous flights of stairs you will see a chest at the top with 3
          Syrup Bottles and 3 Nectar Bottles.  Go up the steps next to this and
          you will end up outside in a city area.  Break the ice in front of
          you with your Sorcerer's Ring and you can go up the steps or follow
          the walkway to the right.  Go to the right first, the path north gets
          you a Limit Bottle, the one south leads to a Rune Mail.  Go up the
          steps that were previously behind the ice you just broke and you will
          enter a courtyard area.  Going north will lead to a Specific and a
          Treat on your right hand side.  You'll then want to take the western
          path that runs you across a long bridge and into path [3].

PATH [3]: You will be along a castle area.  Go up the steps and the path forks
          going right or up/left.  Go up/left first and pick up the Limit
          Bottle from the chest, then take the right path.  You will go up a
          couple stairs and see 3 Lemon Gels in a chest on the landing in one
          area.  Proceed up and there will be another chest with a Warrior's
          Principal on the landing right before the top.  Once you've reached
          the top there is a door you can enter that takes you inside a large,
          bowl shaped room.  Enter the bowl area and you will find 4 silver
          orbs around the parimeter you will need to hit with your spirit ring
          to get into the center hole.  Thinking of it like a clock:

             - 01: Miracle Gel
             - 03: SILVER ORB
             - 07: Rare Boots
             - 06: SILVER ORB
             - 09: SILVER ORB
             - 10: Life Bottle
             - 12: SILVER ORB

          After getting all of the orbs into the center, a path will open up
          for you to exit.  Head outside into PATH [4].

PATH [4]: Save at the SAVE POINT as you enter, then grab the Limit Bottle from
          the chest right next to it.  Continue your march upward and on a
          landing to the left (like in PATH [3]) you will find a Special Gel.
          One story above that on the right is an Elemental Ribbon.  Enter the
          room at the top left and you'll meet an old friend again.


          -----------------
          BOSS BATTLE: ZAGI
          -----------------

          NOTE: Zagi will perform an arte called Blastia Bane.  He will stand
                still and charge up for a few moments and then continue on
                fighting.  He will have to do this a few times before you can
                actually get the Secret Mission though.  After doing the arte a
                couple times, he will charge up and then look down for a couple
                seconds after the spell is over, almost like he is worn out.
                When he does this, simply attack him and it will knock him over
                and give you the Secret Mission.

          BE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON ZAGI.

          At this point in the game you shouldn't have much trouble with Zagi.
          Your defense is high enough that you can take his hits all day, with
          the exception of his Mystic Arte.  Keep the heat on him and he won't
          be able to move.  A party stacked with all of the females will get
          you a quick win as they will just continuously hammer him with spells
          and attacks the entire time.  I swapped out Judith for Raven though
          in order to get the Secret Mission since Judith tends to mess up the
          Blastia Bane thing a lot.  No major strategy needed, just string your
          attacks until he's dead.  You will receive a Demon's Seal and Stun
          Talisman for defeating Zagi.


          To the left of Zagi's platform you can find an Effecti Ring, then at
          the top of the ramp in front of the exit is another Limit Bottle.
          Exit this area to another outside stair section.  Right outside the
          exit to the right is a Caladbolg.  You will have to go down the
          stairs and head right, then start going back up the steps again.
          As you're coming up you will find a chest on a landing to your left
          with an Energy Wand.  The door at the top leads to PATH [H].

PATH [H]: You will be in a cave-like area now.  To your right is a chest with 3
          Pineapple Gels and 3 Lemon Gels.  There is a blastia here you can hit
          with your Sorcerer's Ring to reveal a new path.  Follow it along and
          you will run right into a chest with 5 Panacea Bottles where it
          forks.  Go right and hit the blastia, then collect the Rune Jacket
          from the chest and hit the blastia right beyond that.  Backup to
          where the path forked and take the left side and hit the blastia.
          Just to the left of it is a Special Gel.  Back up to where you first
          entered the room and go on the left path.

          On the left as you're walking along you can grab ANOTHER Limit
          Bottle, hit the blastia right beyond this.  There is a path leading
          south/up to take, at the top is a blastia and a chest with 3 Miracle
          Gels.  Go back and hit the other blastia that was straight ahead of
          you and back up to the main path you were on and continue north.  You
          should have just made a big circle, the open path is all the way to
          the right of this area by where you found the Rune Jacket earler.
          You will run right into an Empress Dress and another blastia to
          activate.  Once you hit this, you can back up to where you see the
          two blue teleport pads in the distance and take that path.  Activate
          the two blastias in between the pads and you reveal an ominous set of
          stairs.  SAVE AT THE SAVE POINT BUT DO NOT GO UP THESE STEPS!!  Go
          back to where you just picked up the Empress Dress and there is now
          a path open to the right that takes you outside to PATH [5].

PATH [5]: Follow the stairs down until you come to a landing with a chest,
          inside is a Glorious Guard.  Down the steps and on the next landing
          is a door you can enter, but don't go in here just yet.  Go down
          another flight, and head to your left up the steps and you will see a
          chest with a Mumbane right above you.  Go back and enter that door
          you just passed and you find yourself in the lower section of Zagi's
          room.  Pass the teleporter and grab the Red Chamomile from the chest
          ahead, then exit outside.

          You are now in another section heading down some steps.  Do you feel
          like you're just un-doing all of the progress you made getting to the
          top?  Go down the stairs and on a landing to your left you can find a
          Milky Way (not the candy, a weapon).  Keep going down and keep an eye
          out for a chest beneath one of the sets of stairs you're coming down,
          you can pick up a Kritya Coat from this chest.  Down another long set
          of stairs and you end up in PATH [6].

PATH [6]: You're back in the city-esque part of Tarqaron now.  To your left by
          where the ice is on the ground for the first time you can find
          another Terra Crest.  Continue on until you're back inside and follow
          these steps down as well.  At the very bottom landing you can pick up
          a Laurel from the chest and exit the room.  You will find yourself
          back in the very first part of the labyrinth at the start of this
          area (PATH [I]).

PATH [I]: Across the invisible bridge is a chest with two Pineapple Gels and
          two Lemon Gels.  Use the green lift to go below and on the left side
          of the platform where you came down is a Miracle Gel and a Golden
          Hammer.  Cross the giant invisible bridge when you're ready.

          You will be in a crystal room now, face to your left and shoot the
          net holding a stone block with your Ring to drop it down.  Go down
          this left ladder, then down again and hit another net with your Ring.
          Pick up the Prism Protector from the chest up the ladder in front of
          you, then backtrack up to the previous platform and continue going
          up.  There are two empty nets along the way, make sure to hit these
          and go all the way up to where there are ladders on either side of
          you.  Take the one on your left first, drop the block down then go
          down to where it fell to get a Special Gel.  Now go to the right side
          and perform the same process to allow you access to the right side of
          this area.

          As you come up the ladder you can now get to, you will be on a pretty
          long platform.  Go to the very end of it to burn the net, then go up
          the ladder here to drop a chest down that has an All-Divide.  Go up
          and you will see two blocks on either side of you, the left one gets
          you to a Limit Bottle, then hit the other one down to open a path for
          later.  Go all the way down and across an invisible bridge and into
          PATH [J].

PATH [J]: Come down the steps and you're in the labyrinth again but now with a
          reddish tint.  Get the Susanoh from the chest on your right and
          follow the path all the way around to the left for the Uroboros.  You
          will notice two grey pads on the ground that you can check, hit both
          of them to activate them and it will open up two small bridges back
          in PATH [I].  Go up the stairs on the left side of this area that you
          haven't used yet and it will bring you back to PATH [I].

          NOTE: Uroboros and Susanoh are the final two Fell Arms!  Congrats!
                There will be a scene regarding these shortly.

PATH [I]: As you come in, burn the net to your right and go down the ladder.
          Go down the ladder on your right, then up on the next one you see
          next to the bridges you created in the other room.  Burn the net to
          drop a chest down, then go back up to the platform below where you
          just came in.  To the left you see three ladders, two going up and
          one going down between them.  Go down, pick up the Red Verbena from
          the chest and burn the net to the left of it.  Go up either of the
          two ladders you just passed and take the invisible bridge to a small
          platform in another room.  The left one will drop a monster down, the
          right one activates steps in the previous room.  Activate the steps,
          then go back and take the ladder leading down on your right side.
          The steps are located between the bridges you activated back in [J].
          Take the steps into PATH [C].

PATH [C]: Another red-tinted room.  Next to a console is a chest with three
          Special Gels.  Go up the steps into a blue-tinted room and you'll
          find a Meteorite Blade in a chest.  You will also unlock the freight
          lifts in the labyrinth!  You're now back in the very first part of
          Tarqaron again.  I recommend saving outside right now.  Exit to where
          Ba'ul is waiting and you will get a scene talking about having just
          collected all 7 of the Fell Arms.


NOTE: At this point you have the option of exiting Tarqaron since you've looped
      back around to the beginning.  Take time to clean up a couple side items
      while you're here.

      - Go to Nam Cobanda and talk to the guy by the entrance who you spoke to
        earlier about getting his treasure game going.  You should have opened
        enough chests throughout the course of the game to help him out.  If
        you have opened enough he will thank you for your help and Yuri will
        earn the "Treasure Hunter" title.

      - Go to Aurnion and you will get a scene with Flynn trying to take care
        of things in town.  He looks too busy to deal with the Fell Arms right
        now so you decide to hang onto it.

      - In Aurnion, go to the very west part of town to find Ioder, talk to him
        and he will give Estelle the BC Rod.

      - Equip everyone's hot spring uniforms and talk to the receptionist in
        Yumanju.  You will get one last scene involving the baths.

      - If you've hit every SAVE POINT in the game you should get the "Back Up
        Plan" achievement at this point.


When you are ready for the final battle, enter Tarqaron and go to any of the
freight lifts (like on PATH [E] for example).  Since they are unlocked you can
make a quick trip to the top.  On the very top floor you will see your final
battle right at the top of the steps.  Before going that way, make sure to go
to the freight lift on the left hand side and check it to unlock the left side
lifts as well.  Proceed up the stairs to your FINAL BATTLE!!


NOTE: - Be sure set a recipe such as Fruit Parfait as one of your cooking
        shortcuts before battle.  You will have a chance to cook something
        mid-way through this battle and there will be a massive amount of TP
        consumption going on.  Fruit Parfait restores 50% of your party's TP
        so it's a big help.

      - Be sure your party is equipped properly.  Go through you list of skills
        and get everyone set up correctly, go through their equipment and do
        the same.  Make sure you are stocked on items, particularly HP and TP
        recovery items, as well as status effect cures.

      - Keep the Special skill equipped and also Rebirth.  You will need to use
        a Mystic Arte for the secret mission and Rebirth helps out a great deal
        when you're on the receiving end of a Mystic Arte (and you will be on
        the receiving end quite a bit).


-----------------
BOSS BATTLE: DUKE
-----------------

DUKE FORM 1:

BE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON DUKE'S FIRST FORM.

  Duke is a pushover in the first round.  He doesn't teleport much, doesn't
  attack much and his attacks are pretty weak.  Focus on physical attacks and
  conserve your TP for the next rounds.  You should have any issues taking care
  of him.  Corner him and keep the attacks coming, he doesn't do much to defend
  against it.


DUKE FORM 2:

BE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON DUKE'S SECOND FORM.

NOTE: To complete the Secret Mission you will need to kill this form by using a
      Mystic Arte.  Wait until he's got around 50,000 or so HP left then throw
      your Over Limit and hit the Mystic Arte.  It will kill this form and give
      you the achievement.

  Duke's second form is noticeably tougher than the first, but not to the point
  that he isn't reasonably easy to defeat.  He will teleport a lot more meaning
  more wasted spells and attacks.  Guard A LOT more this round, watch his artes
  and his actions before throwing them to see what you'll need to guard against
  and what you can take and just keep swinging at him.  When he gets to around
  100,000 or less HP he will throw his Mystic Arte called Big Bang which will
  knock off a considerable amount of damage from your party, but if you have
  Rebirth equipped you can run around a bit and gain a lot of it back
  automatically.  This is the only real attack you need to watch for in this
  match.  After the battle you will get a Last Fencer if you did the Secret
  Mission and you can also take this time to make a recipe.  As I suggested
  earlier, the Fruit Parfait is a good one as it gets you a ton of TP back.


DUKE FORM 3:

BE SURE TO USE A MAGIC LENS ON DUKE'S THIRD FORM.

 If you collected all of the Fell Arms and took them to Aurnion like mentioned
 earlier, you can fight Duke's third and final form named Radiant Winged One.
 The third form is very similar to the second one, just with higher damage
 being dealt and more teleporting from Duke making him harder to hit.  This
 is more of an endurance thing than a difficulty thing.  He will cast Big
 Bang very frequently but now it does double what it did last round, in the
 15,000 HP range.  Your Rebirth skills help greatly here as you won't need to
 waste items and TP trying to recover health.  When he gets to around 100,000
 HP, take him down as quickly as possible, throw whatever you've got at him.
 If Duke goes into Over Limit, he will cast Brave Vesperia.  Though weak in
 the damage department, it cures him for over 150,000 HP and further extends
 this marathon battle.  Wear him down and you'll eventually land the final
 blow and complete the game! (Kind of)


Watch the conclusion to the game and enjoy the credits.  Afterwards you will
get the option to save and your save file will have a star next to it.
Reload this file and there is an extra area you can now complete!  MORE ON
THIS IN THE NEXT UPDATE!!

                          X. Secret Missions
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Secret Missions are special tasks you must accomplish when fighting bosses
throughout the game.  They are often times hard to get, however you will be
rewarded with the True Knight title and costume for Yuri if you manage to
complete all of them in a single run.  For more info on where to collect your
costume after finishing these missions, visit the Titles section of this guide.


SECRET MISSION 1

LOCATION: Zaphias
BOSS:     Zagi

  Protect Estelle.  She needs to receive minimal to no damage during this
  battle in this battle against Zagi.  Keep him entertained and away from
  Estelle and you will have no problem.


SECRET MISSION 2

LOCATION: Shaikos Ruins
BOSS:     Goliath

  Attack the backside of Goliath when he is charging for an attack.  The best
  way to guarantee getting this is to free run behind Goliath and stay there
  for the entire fight.  Just keep attacking as normal behind him and he will
  eventually charge his attack and as long as you land one during this time,
  you will achieve the goal.


SECRET MISSION 3

LOCATION: Ehmead Hill
BOSS:     Gattuso

  There are a number of red flowers surrounding the battlefield in this fight.
  Lure Gattuso over towards one of them, attack the flower and it will spray
  the pollen and paralyze him.  Try to contain Gattuso around one of these
  flowers so that even if you aren't able to personally hit it, one of your
  party members may do it for you.


SECRET MISSION 4

LOCATION: Nor Harbor (Boat)
BOSS:     Zagi

  You need to toss Zagi over the side of the boat to complete this.  Zagi has
  a cyclone attack where he spirals into the air after a combo.  Lure him
  towards the very side of the boat so you are up against the railing and wait
  for him to do this attack.  When he is in the air above you, hit your Over
  Limit and it will send him flying through the air and off the boat.


SECRET MISSION 5

LOCATION: Caer Bocram
BOSS:     Dreaded Giant

  The giant will sometimes get up onto his hind legs to begin in attack.  As
  soon as he gets in this position you will need to run in and start attacking
  him.  It may take a couple swings but if you manage to hit him while he is up
  on two legs like this you will complete the mission.


SECRET MISSION 6

LOCATION: Keiv Moc
BOSS:     Gigalarva

  Make sure you are controlling Raven before entering this battle.  You will
  notice that Gigalarva can regain health by dipping his stinger into the
  puddle of water on the field.  When you see him walking towards the water to
  do this, have Raven cast "Serpent" on the ground in the water where he is
  headed and the monster will be knocked backwards when he dips the stinger.


SECRET MISSION 7

LOCATION: Ghasfarost
BOSS:     Barbos

  There are 4 green orbs surround the battle area for this fight.  You cannot
  target them with your bumper, so free run over to one and attack it.  This
  will set your target on the bridge support and you can destory it in a couple
  hits.  Make sure to kill all three of them before finishing Barbos off to
  complete the mission.


SECRET MISSION 8

LOCATION: Nordopolika
BOSS:     Zagi

  The trick to this one is getting Zagi to absorb enough magic for his arm
  attachment to explode.  This is one of the easier ones to attain, simply have
  Rita in your party and have her throw only her Fireball spell at Zagi, or if
  she's not in your party some reason just set your characters to use magic on
  Zagi only.  As they throw magic at him, he will constantly raise his arm and
  absorb the spells, the arm will turn from green to red and eventually explode
  which will earn you the secret mission.


SECRET MISSION 9

LOCATION: Weasand of Cados
BOSS:     Pteropus

  This bat has two forms, his initial form has him as just one unit, all of the
  bats working together.  Attack it until in spreads into a bunch of different
  bats that scatter across the stage.  When the bats are scattered, locate and
  attack the one called Leader Bat only, DO NOT ATTACK THE OTHERS.  You have to
  defeat the Leader Bat first before killing the others to accomplish the
  secret mission.


SECRET MISSION 10

LOCATION: Sands of Kogorh
BOSS:     Outbreaker

  Outbreaker will spit an orb from his mouth during battle, this is your
  target.  Equip Yuri's "Severing Fang" arte to one of your shortcuts before or
  during battle.  When he spits this orb out, quickly run up and use this arte,
  Yuri will jump in the air and hit the orb with the attack.  You will need to
  do this a few times before it is destroyed.  I believe about five or so hits
  will do the trick.


SECRET MISSION 11

LOCATION: Nordopolica
BOSS:     Belius

  Initially, there is only one enemy in the ring when you are fighting Belius.
  After receiving a fair amount of damage, she will split into two and you will
  also see that the candles circling the battle area are extinguished.  You
  will need to light these candles.  You can accomplish this by using Yuri's
  Destruction Field on them.  Simply target each one and use the spell, it will
  light the candles, get you the accomplishment, and also remove the Belis
  (Double) from battle.


SECRET MISSION 12

LOCATION: Mt. Temza
BOSS:     Nan and Tison

  You will need to do a knock down arte attack on both of them after they
  peform a particular attack against you.  Tison will have a move where it
  looks like giant yellow serpents raise from the ground, after this he will
  kneel over and pause for a moment.  While he is like this, perform your
  strike and knock him over to get a "Great!" message.  Nan will have an
  attack where rocks raise up from the ground and she will jump on top of her
  weapon and it will get stuck in the ground.  While she is on top of her
  weapon, attack her and knock her down to get the second "Great!" message.
  This will complete the mission.  It is easiest if you just guard outside of
  their attack range and run in right as they begin to pause.


SECRET MISSION 13

LOCATION: Baction
BOSS:     Schwann

  Schwann will perform a giant Arte attack that will hit the entire area are
  it should knock you down.  Stay blocking throughout the course of the attack
  and when it's done you will see Schwann clutching his chest and bending over.
  Mash X to get up as quickly as possible, then run over to him and use an
  attack such as Ghost Wolf on him to knock him over.  If you hit him with it
  before he's able to recover you will complete the secret mission.


SECRET MISSION 14

LOCATION: Heracles
BOSS:     Zagi

  Make Karol your party leader so that you can control him during battle.  At
  some point during the fight, Zagi will poison himself in order to pass the
  poison on to your party.  Simply equip the "Nice Recovery Smash" arte on
  Karol and use it next to Zagi to cure him of his poison.  If you cure him
  it will complete the secret mission.  This is probably one of the easiest
  ones to complete in the game.


SECRET MISSION 15

LOCATION: Blade Drifts of Zophier
BOSS:     Baitojoh

  Baitojoh will occassionally go below the ice to attack you, sometimes he will
  have his fin sticking out of the top of the ice.  You will need to hit this
  fin before he finishes the attack.  It is possible to hit it multiple times
  so it could be done all at once or it could take a few times for him to be
  under the ice to complete it.  Hit it enough times and he will fly out of the
  ice and give you the "Great!" message.  Once this happens you have completed
  the secret mission.


SECRET MISSION 16

LOCATION: Zaphias
BOSS:     Estelle

  There are two seperate fights during this battle, you cannot complete the
  secret mission on the first.  After defeating her the first time you will go
  into another battle with her.  All you need to do is use the item "Mother's
  Memento" in battle.  That's it.  Seriously.



                      MORE INFO COMING SOON!

Q1: Where can I find the synthesis item "Jet Black Ink" and "Pitch Black Ink"?

A : There are a number of places to find Jet Black Ink in the game.  One I
    found pretty early on is on Corridor Beach.  This is located on the beach
    southeast of Zaphias.  If you look on the world map there is a beach that
    runs the entire length of the eastern coast of the continent Zaphias is on.
    Anywhere along there are monsters called Tentaclers that look like squids
    and drop the item for you.  They're low level so the battles are easy.

    Pitch Black Ink is easiest found on the small sand island between Baction
    and Egothor Forest.  At all times of the day you will see small red squids
    that drop the Jet Black Ink, but during the night you can find GIANT squid
    creatures that will rarely drop the Pitch Black Ink.  Equip a Hunter's
    Monocle to make it easier on you.


                 ---------------------------------


Q2: Where can I find the synthesis item "Blastium Ore J" and "Cheagle Fur"?

A : A certain event late in the game will drain all of the lakes in the world,
    it will reveal a handful of places that were previously unreachable.

    - Blastium Ore J can be found in the mountain area behind Mt. Temza after
      the lakes are drained.  There is only one type of enemy roaming around up
      there, they are big grey colored monsters with red bowties.

    - Cheagle Fur can be found inside the dry lakebed of Niffel Lake.  Not
      around the lake, IN the lake.  Giant lanky blue monsters called
      Gentlemieus will drop them rarely.  Equip a Hunter's Monocle to speed the
      process up.


                 ---------------------------------


Q3: Where and how can I level up my Sorcerer's Ring?

A : There are five Sorcerer's Ring levels that you can obtain throughout the
    game.  Here is how you get them:

    LEVEL 1: Storyline
    LEVEL 2: Storyline
    LEVEL 3: Storyline
    LEVEL 4: Aer Krene, south of Nordopolica.  This can only be done after you
             have collected the 4 spirits!
    LEVEL 5: Aer Krene, southeast of Yumanju.


                 ---------------------------------


Q4: Where are the warehouses and is there a guide to completing them?
 
A : Currently I have the solutions scattered through my guide in the
    walkthrough section.  Check back for a seperate section at a later time.


                 ---------------------------------


Q5: What is the door password in Caer Bocram??

A : The answer is "SUN".  Obvious, huh?


                 ---------------------------------


Q6: Where can I find the "Fell Arms" weapons?
A : Each character has a legendary Fell Arm weapon, they are scattered around
    the world and the following will give you a general location.  You can
    search the walkthrough for more details about their locations.
