ABOUT THIS FAQ/WALKTHROUGH ============================= This is the first guide I have ever written for a game, so bear with me. (Actually, it's the second; I wrote one for Braid but chose to never have it published.) This guide is intended to help you, the player, get the most out of Tales of Vesperia for the Xbox 360, and there is a lot. If you are lost in the story, find your place in the walkthrough to get to the next step. If you want to know more about the game's plentiful extra content, it has its own section or you can find it in the walkthrough. Use this guide to your heart's content. In the first version, only basic information and the storyline walkthrough are included in the guide. More will be added in time. For any suggestions, check out the contact information at the end of the guide. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ II ~~~~ GENERAL INFORMATION ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ =========== A.

Those are covered in their respective sections. ============= B. CHARACTERS ============= Each character in the game has his or her own contributions to the party. The best idea is to mix up the party often to level them up equally and get used to playing with all of them. In certain situations throughout the story, party members will leave so that you will be forced to use other characters. Try them all out and find which character suits you best. 1. YURI A ruffian from the capital's lower quarter and the main character of the story. Justice is his creed, and he bases all his decisions on it. Pros: - Capable of chaining extremely long combos - Physical attack is high - Fairly quick movement and attack - Able to heal himself through an altered arte Cons: - Magic defense is extremely lacking -------- 2. ESTELLE A runaway princess from the capital. Never having been outside the castle, she lacks any common sense but acquires her knowledge from books. Pros: - Full range of healing and recovery artes and status buffs - Has some decent attack spells - Highest all-around defense Cons: - Physical attacks are moderately slow - Spell incantations are long - Attack spells only carry light attribute - Lowest HP -------- 3. REPEDE A tough dog who was saved by Yuri and Flynn after his previous owner died. Although he keeps distant from most everyone else, he has a stifling weakness for the children. Pros: - Quickest fighter in the game - Decent physical attack power - Low clearance so that many enemy attacks pass over him Cons: - Disadvantaged against flying enemies - All-around defense is low - Significantly less combo capability - Low TP -------- 4. KAROL A wishy-washy guild hopper from Dahngrest. Though he's so young, he has big dreams of running the world's largest guild. Pros: - Incredible attack power - Has healing and recovery artes - Defends adequately all-around - High HP Cons: - Incredibly slow, both in movement and in attack - No decent combo moves - Low TP at the start -------- 5. RITA A genius blastia researcher from the underground city of Mordio. Having been surrounded by research all her life, she acts tough but has trouble expressing her feelings at times. Pros: - Highest magic attack - Has a wide range of spells at her disposal - Can hold her own in hand-to-hand combat - Resists spells well Cons: - Weak against physical attacks - Has trouble targeting with projectile spells - Low HP -------- 6. RAVEN A mysterious agent from the guild town, Dahngrest. Initially, his motives are unclear as he seems to pop in and out of sight and sometimes misdirects the team. Pros: - Ranged attack - Quick healing arte - Moderately nimble around the battlefield Cons: - Lowest defense of all characters - Falls short in close quarter combat - Weak magic power - Lowest TP -------- 7. JUDITH A desirable Krityan girl from the secret town of Myorzo. She enjoys fighting and expresses her emotions audially, but often not visually. Pros: - Excellent aerial combo skills - Moves speedily around the field - Wide array of strike artes Cons: - Not ideal for comboing with other characters - Lowest magic defense ========= C. BASICS ========= 1. BATTLE SYSTEM Tales of Vesperia makes use of the Evolved Flex-Range Linear Motion Battle System. Enemy encounters are chosen by the player, save for some situations (i.e. boss fights, scripted encounters, enemy blocking the path). General: - Attacks and other actions happen in real time - Consumable items can be used at any time during the fight - Equipment, artes, or strategy can be changed at any time during the fight - You can escape all enemy encounters except for bosses and scripted encounters Movement: - Your character moves in line with the targeted enemy - You can use free run (LT) to roam the battlefield Attack: - Use basic attacks and strike or magic artes on the enemy to damage them - Each basic attack that staggers the enemy recovers 1 TP - String attacks and artes together to build up a combo on the enemy - While enemies guard, damage inflicted reduces by 50% and the combo counter does not rise - Depending on attack power, you can break an enemy's guard and draw them into stagger - If attack power is low, the enemy will be protected by a transparent shield. Although damage is not mitigated, the enemy will not stagger and the combo counter does not rise - As with guard, you can break an enemy's shield as well - Each attack has a chance of stunning the enemy, no matter what attack power. During stun, enemies cannot act until acted upon - Some human bosses can use magic guard. As with yours, it doesn't guard against physical attacks Defense: - Most of the information from enemies about guarding, staggering and stunning applies to your team as well - If a character's HP drops to 0, then he or she will get knocked out. Use a Life Bottle or Estelle's Resurrection or Regenerate to restore his or her HP - Some enemies' attacks can inflict status effects on your character. These can either wear off or last forever, even after the battle is over. Use recovery artes or bottles to negate the status effects Status Effects: Symbol Condition - Poison Green bubbles HP drops over time - Contamination Purple bubbles TP drops over time - Weakness Half-filled blue bar Drops maximum HP by half - Paralysis Yellow lightning bolt Nullifies random actions - Sealed artes Red x over a star Cannot use any artes - Sealed skills Blue x over a star Effects of all equipped skills are nullified - Petrification Gray stone Cannot perform any actions - Sleep Blue z Cannot perform any actions for a limited time or until attacked - Charm Charm Randomly changes button mapping - Physical attack Sword Increases or decreases physical attack - Physical defense Armor plate Increases or decreases physical defense - Magic attack Staff Increases or decreases magical attack - Magic defense Cloak Increases or decreases magical defense - Revivification White feather Automatically resurrects from K.O. Post-Battle: - You gain experience, Gald, LP (for learning skills) and grade after almost every battle - Enemies often drop items and materials for synthesis after a battle - You can cook shortcutted recipes following a fight if you have sufficient ingredients Leveling: - Experience from battles goes toward leveling up your characters - With every new level, all stats increase - Each character receives a new title at levels 20, 60 and 100 - The maximum level is 200 -------- 2. ARTES Artes are the so-called "techs" of Tales of Vesperia. Simply put, they are the special moves or spells in the game. Each person has his or her own set of unique artes that actually do a good job of expressing the different personalities. For example, Raven's artes have odd names that fit his persona of mystique, and Karol's sound and look cheesy or childish to go along with his tween, bumbling air. As with any other RPG, these artes serve a number of different specific purposes. The main categories of the artes in the game are as follows: - Damage: to deal a great amount of pain to a target - Combo: to raise the combo counter higher - Healing: to restore HP or bring a character back from K.O. status - Recovery: to cure a character from physical or magical ailments - Buff: to increase the stats of other characters - Projectile: to attack a target from a distance - Area of effect: to bring the hurt or the heal to a cluster of targets Initially, each character begins with a couple of rudimentary artes. These are called base artes or, in the case of magic, novice spells. As you level up and progress through the game, characters will start learning more sophisticated moves called arcane artes and intermediate or advanced spells. Initially, you can perform a chain consisting of the basic attack combo to a basic arte to an arcane arte. One of my favorite combos is using Yuri's basic combo followed by Shining Fang and finishing with Dragon Swarm. Try different combinations and see which ones you like the most. When equipped with certain skills, it is possible for a character to learn an altered arte, which is a variation of an arte that is either extended or fused with a certain attribute. All you need to do is perform an arte and, with the right skills equipped, the altered version will be uncovered. You can even permanently learn these altered artes; just cast the original arte 100 times or the original spell 50 times with the required skills. For example, equip the Chain skill on Yuri and have him use Azure Edge to uncover the Azure Storm altered arte. Unlike the base arte, the altered artes cannot initially be connected to other types of artes. However, there are skills that each character can learn to chain different types of artes together. Each arte incurs an amount of tech points, or TP. The more advanced one is, the higher the TP cost. Naturally, arcane artes or advanced spells will cose much more than base artes. In general, use whatever artes you wish, but do not use up all your TP on the weeny enemies. Instead, save it for the big baddies. There are two other kinds of artes, burst and mystic. Those two will be covered in the next section. -------- 3. OVER LIMIT Over Limits are a unique power-up in the Tales series. They can turn the tide of battle in or against your favor, depending on who uses it. While it doesn't necessary increase your attack power, it enhances your abilities and allows you to use artes that aren't normally available. The Over Limit is unlocked for battle in Halure after reviving the tree. Adecor and Boccos actually teach it to you without intending to. By attacking or being attacked, the Spirit Gauge on the right gradually fills up. When it reaches the top, you gain an Over Limit to use. Initially, you can only fill up the Spirit Gauge once, but throughout the game you will receive or synthesize items that can fill the gauge up to four times. To activate the Over Limit, press a direction on the d-pad. During this time, your character will glow a specific color depending on the level activated. There are four levels of Over Limit that you can activate, depending on how many times you have filled up the Spirit Gauge. For example, you can only trigger a Level 2 Over Limit if the gauge meter reads "2." The d-pad directions for the different levels are given in the Battle section of Controls. Each level of Over Limit provides your character with a special trait on top of those granted from the lower levels: OL LEVEL COLOR EFFECT 1 Blue Able to continuously chain basic attacks and artes 2 Green Increases damage dealt on downed enemies 3 Orange Removes TP cost for all artes 4 Red No damage or stagger from enemy attacks Also, the higher level the Over Limit, the longer it lasts. Along with that, using an Over Limit gives you a chance to use a Burst Arte. Unlocked after fighting Adecor and Boccos in Heliord, the Burst Arte is a stronger attack to use against the enemy. To trigger one, cast either an Arcane Arte, an Altered Arte, or at least an Intermediate Spell and hold your arte button. Immediately concluding the Burst Arte, you can continue attacking. Get the timing right to chain several Burst Artes in a single Over Limit period. Even more powerful than Burst Artes are the almighty Mystic Artes. These attacks pause all other action on the screen and allow you to pummel one or more enemies in grand fashion. In order to perform one, a character must have the "Special" skill equipped and be in a Level 3 or 4 Over Limit. Cast either an Arcane Arte, an Altered Arte, at least an Intermediate Spell, or a Burst Arte and hold the basic attack button to trigger it. The last hit of whatever arte you used must connect with the targeted enemy for it to work (only if it's an attack arte). Though this may seem like a great advantage against your foes, take note that all the bosses and Giganto Monsters after learning about Over Limit in Halure can use them. They cannot be staggered and can attack continuously, although your attacks will still render full damage. At a certain point in the game, almost all human bosses will have unique Mystic Artes at their disposal as well, so watch out! -------- 4. FATAL STRIKES An exclusive edition to the battle system in Vesperia is the Fatal Strike. Learned in Caer Bocram, these attacks require you to "knock an enemy off- balance" so that you can hit it with a finishing blow. Really, the Fatal Strike system is quite simple. TYPE SYMBOL METHOD Downward Blue up arrow Juggle an opponent in the air Horizontal Green right arrow Knock an opponent backwards Upward Red down arrow Slam an opponent into the ground Hold the right bumper to see each of the FS meters for a targeted enemy. Each arte or directional basic attack has an attribute corresponding to an FS. This attribute tells which of the meters the attack will drop. Note that the action of the arte corresponds to the direction of the FS (e.g. Yuri's Azure Edge cuts across the enemies, so naturally it drops the green horizontal meter). Continue inflicting attacks of a certain FS attribute against an enemy. When a meter is near empty, an enemy will flash the color of the FS. Once the meter has reached the bottom, use another arte of that attribute. A glyph will appear around the enemy followed by the symbol of the FS in the middle. When the symbol appears, press the Right Trigger to perform it on the enemy. Against normal enemies, the FS means an instant kill. It doesn't finish off bosses as definitively, but it still deals a considerable amount of damage. Both the downward and upward FS, if performed successfully, give positive status effects to all characters. Plus, each FS grants bonus EXP, additional grade, more LP and extra items at the end of a fight. Combined with Burst Artes, Fatal Strikes are the most effective way to farm grade in this game. -------- 5. SKILLS The Tales series always changes up the skill system from game to game, and this one is no different. As opposed to some of the more recent entries in Tales (e.g. EX skills from EX Gems or AD skills from Capacity Cores), the characters in Tales of Vesperia learn various skills by equipping weapons. They range in usefulness from completely worthless, like Rise Attack in my opinion, to Holy Grail status, such as the coveted Glory skill. Every character is capable of equipping 100+ different skills. To me, skills are what make the subsequent run-throughs of the game worthwhile, so do not underestimate their capability. Most weapons, either main or sub, have skills that are embedded in them. In order for a character to learn them, naturally, they have to use the weapons in battle. Every skill requires a certain untold number of linking points, or LP, to unlock. The more advanced skills need more LP, and higher-level enemies will distribute more LP at the end of a battle. After the LP threshold is reached, the skill becomes part of the character and is usable even without its corresponding weapon. To equip skills necessitates a certain number of skill points, or SP. Again, the quantity of SP required depends on a skill's awesomeness. Characters only receive one or two skill points per level, so pick skills carefully. If you want a power hitter that wants to knock the wind out of enemies with each hit, go for the strength, magic, or heavy hit skills. If you want a comboing master, try the combo plus, super chain, and tension skills. Even some seemingly pointless ones are actually gems, like the half, quarter, and minimum damage skills. There are numerous other skills weapons that you cannot find in treasure or buy from a store. Check out the synthesis option whenever you can and see how many extra weapons you can forge. Most of these weapons require another weapon to make, so it's not necessarily a good idea to sell off old weapons when they become obsolete. Furthermore, some key skills cannot be obtained from weapons but require certain sub-events in the game to unlock. After the first run of the game, you can choose to have all skills incur an SP cost of only 1. While the grade cost is high, it is definitely worth it for maybe the third or fourth playthrough. Also, make sure to carry over skills or at least all items after you complete the game once, as it is a pain to gather up all the weapons and learn the skills all over again. -------- 6. STRATEGY One of my biggest beefs about this game is the lack of competence of the AI-controlled characters. At least you have some ample control over their actions during battle. The Strategy interface allows you to do just that. Strategy lets the human character give directions to the computer characters during battle. You may want them to perform differently based on who is on the active team, whether the fight involves normal enemies or boss enemies, whether they should go all out or take a breather, and so on. You can toggle between three custom strategies or a character-specific strategy during a battle. You can do this by bringing up the menu, holding LB and pressing the direction of the mapped strategy on the left stick or d-pad. The character-specific one is always mapped to the down direction. You can edit the strategies by selecting the appropriate option in either the normal or battle menu. Pressing A changes what strategy corresponds to the selected direction. Y allows you to edit the starting formation of the party, and X opens up the Edit Strategy interface. This is where the meat and potatoes of your options come from. You can tinker with the options yourself and develop strategies that fit your fighting preference. Just as a suggestion, I use three different strategies depending on the situation. Each option applies to every character unless otherwise noted. DEFAULT: TRASH - for normal enemies - Target Different Enemy - HP Moderate - TP Use 25% - Action Heal (Estelle, Raven), Cure (Karol), Magic Artes Only (Rita), Up To You (Yuri, Repede and Judith) - Position Free Move - Item Watch TP (healers use healing artes regardless of TP level) - OVL Do Not Use - FS Aim BOSS - for bosses or Giganto Monsters - Target Different Enemy - HP Endure - TP Full Artes - Action Same as TRASH - Position Free Move (Yuri, Repede, Karol and Judith), Keep Distance (Estelle, Rita and Raven) - Item Watch TP - OVL Do Not Use - FS Aim DEFEND - for trying to complete a specific Secret Mission or during a boss's Over Limit Only options that matter: - Action Defend - Position Keep Distance For DEFEND, I use the right stick to shortcut other artes if needed. For the heck of it, I set the starting formation to front and center just because it looks funny beginning the battle bunched up. -------- More information will be added to this entire section in subsequent versions, so stay tuned. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~ III ~~~~ WALKTHROUGH ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In this walkthrough, I have chosen not to reveal any information pertinent to the storyline so as not to spoil anything for anyone.
