January 30, 2004 Version 1.0 - May 15, 2003 Version 0.9 - February 3, 2003 First version - April 2002 2 - - ABOUT THE GAME Tales of Eternia is the third game on the Tales series of games on the Playstation, who are one of the most unique Namco RPG series. The Tales series has gained an huge fan base because has great 2-D graphics, a simple to understand but deep battle system and a basic and endearing plot that gives great emphasis on the main characters and his relations with each other, than the enemies and his motivations, that always was Tales of...weakest point. Tales of Eternia was originally released on Japan in November 2000 and after that, release on the US as Tales of Destiny 2 in September 2001 with a new opening movie theme, edited outworld conversations and without true Pocketstation support. 3 - - TITLES DEFINITION A ) Introduction One of the special features of Tales of Destiny 2 and Tales of Phantasia Remake for the Playstation is the Title option. This extra feature is a bonus for players that want to do sidequests and rewards that like to max out the status for the characters. Each person have a special set of titles that shows that the characters completed a given task, which can range from completing a sidequest or reaching Level 99 and so on. B ) Types of titles There are basically 4 kinds of tasks: NORMAL EVENT, that are titles that you begin with or on the normal progression of the game you will gain it without doing anything special. PROGRESSIVE, that is titles that you gain IF you reach a determined level or status in any part of the game. MINIGAME, that are titles that you gain IF you win a determined minigame that is optional. All minigames will be available in the end of game, if you lost any in the course of the game. SIDEQUEST, which are titles that you gain IF you complete a sidequest. Some sidequests can be missed (CUPID). This FAQ shows the name of the title, difficulty of the minigames, the CD to get the title when is a Normal Event and a brief description to how get the titles. Ah, and some comments of funny stuff and curiosities. In Tales of Phantasia, all characters can have the same amount of titles, but in Tales of Eternia/Destiny 2, the amounts of titles are different. Reid gains the most, and Max the least. C ) Title screen To see the number of titles awarded for a character, just enter the menu and select STATUS. Below of the characters name is the current title, and then press down and select your desired title. Just remember, the title awarded does not have a real meaning like boosting your status or anything, it's just there for bragging rights. So have fun! 4 - - TITLES A) REID HERSHEL (27 titles) HUNTER SQUIRE MASTER SWORDSMAN KNIGHT LEGENDARY KNIGHT SUPREME PATRIOT AURORA MASTER GOURMET MASTER NAMCO TEACHER NAMCO PROFESSOR NAMCO OTAKU GLADIATOR SONIC WARRIOR SPEEDSTER MASTER COXSWAIN MASTER ROLLER TROLLEY BOMBER KING OF BALLOONS HUSTLER MILLIONAIRE KING OF HUNGER KAISER BERSERKER PRO ROLLER STAR DANCER MATHEMATICIAN LENS HUNTER HUNTER How to get: Initial title.

CD: 2 Status: Normal Event 5 - - TITLE WALKTHROUGH A) Farah CUPID title To get the cupid title, you must complete successfully the Katrine and Pierre sidequest. Most gamers actually think that the couple destiny is wash dishes and prepare meals on Barole´s restaurant, but this is the BAD ending of this sidequest. This happens because there are one little detail that many misses and makes impossible to gain the title. To refresh your mind, Katrine and Pierre is a couple that is meant to meet on Inferia City. But Katrine is a little... uh....well....nevermind. But are up to you make the couple happy. If you want help the couple to live a full and rewarding life ( and winning a special title ^_^) you must do the following things to get the 2 together in Inferia City. THESE THINGS ARE MEANT TO BE DONE BEFORE THE END OF CD 1 First see the couple in Minche next to the Craymel Ball court. Next, see Katrine on the item shop of Morle. After that you will see her on Chambard on the clothes store. And so you will see Katrine in Barole. And the final step, is to see Katrine on the cafeteria on the ship that goes to Inferia. For that you will have to get the first-class ticket to Inferia. And so after that go inside Inferia (she won't be anywhere, but is to activate the sidequest). And so end the CD 1 and 2. On the CD 3 - Go to Minche, and talk to the guy in front of the house you first met Katrine, he will say that Katrine and Pierre married and are living in Inferia City. You cannot enter the observatory in Inferia on the beginning on the CD 3, so wait for a while. After the Ribavius ore thing, go back to Inferia and enter the observatory. They will be on the third floor, Katrine says that she will be with Pierre all the time, so she won't get lost anymore. Beautiful, huh. You will get Farah´s final title "Cupid" because someone has to help a damsel in distress. It's a shame that no one is a cupid for Farah and Reid.... B ) Food titles The most time-consuming title to get is actually all the Food titles. It's easier to get level 99 than master all dishes. To accelerate the process of obtaining this titles follow this simple tips. - Since the beginning of the game, put autocook on all characters. - If the autocook is a failure, do it again manually. - If you sleep on an inn, you can cook when you wake up. C ) Titles awards: truth or false. You DON'T win a title if: - You reach level 999 (MAX level) or 9999 HP and 999 TP - You get 100% on all items on the Collector List - You get all 8 battle commands like back attack, rush attack, etc. I don't know if you gain a title if: - You get 100% on the monster collection WITH the all items dropped and stealed.(I have 100% of the monsters but not the items) - You auction an item in the town of Jini for a high amount of Jini (I once sold an item for + 21000 Jini and get squat) - When you play a game of WHIS, you final result is put in an accumulative score, like solitaire. Perhaps you win a title if the result is very positive. (My best score was +330 points) - All fighting characters gain a title when he/she gets all battle skills (Supreme patriot, gadget master, elemental master), but Farah doesn't get anything until now on my game. There is a last Farah's skill after Fatal Fury? 6 - - EXTRA / SPECIAL INFO A ) Game Information. NAME : Tales of Eternia (SLPM 86438) PUBLISHER : Namco DEVELOPER : Namco RELEASE DATE : 30/11/2000 PRICE : 6800 yen B ) Japanese-only titles On the Japanese version of TOD2 there is 4 items called the ETEPOKE. The ETEPOKE was items gained when you completed certain sidequests (like the Banrea sidequest, that is not that useful at all on the US version), that downloaded minigames for your pocketstation an, if completed, gave 1 title for each character. Since the pocketstation wasn't released outside Asia, the US version is missing native pocketstation support. And so you can't obtain them by normal means. The ETEPOKE can be, however, obtained on the US version, IF you have a gameshark or similar device and put the code for all items. A message "This item is unavailable on the US version of the game" will appear on the definition of the ETEPOKE. ETEPOKE 1 - Reid ETEPOKE 2 - Farah ETEPOKE 3 - Meredy ETEPOKE 4 - Keele C ) What's missing on the FAQ. For now, I want to find out if there are another titles to gain. Also, I want to know if some of the condition of the titles is right.... D ) Next project / Released FAQs.
